Christopher Gaze, artistic director of the popular Bard on the Beach, will be the keynote speaker at the first annual arts summit later this month in Coquitlam.
Trumpet Tri-City arts and cultures, says Gaze Bard on the Beach boss says region is rich in diversity By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
The best way for the Tri-Cities to renew its arts scene is to include the area’s numerous cultural groups, said one of Canada’s most respected artistic directors. Christopher Gaze of Bard on the Beach, the hugely successful Shakespearean festival held each summer in Vancouver, called the TriCities’ ethnic mix “sensational” and urged civic and cultural leaders to reflect the diversity at arts events and activities. “No matter where you live, you have to show the community that you’re in,” Gaze told The TriCity Newss yesterday. see ARTS SUMMIT SUMMIT,, page 7

15th bear killed at school By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Reaching out to the homeless in Tri-City: page 3
The frantic cries of two bear cubs trapped in a dumpster at Summit middle school Wednesday morning resulted in the tranquillizing and removal of a bear family — and the killing of the mother bear. The mother and three cubs were checking out an open dumpster for food at the Coquitlam school when two of the cubs fell in. Their crying woke up nearby resi-
“Based on the conflict history of the sow, it was determined she was not a candidate for translocation.” Insp. Chris Doyle, BC Conservation officer dents, who called police at about 2 a.m. “They treed the mother bear and one cub, tranquillized and contained them. Then they were left with two cubs making quite a
racket in the dumpster,” said School District 43 spokesperson Cheryl Quinton. The area east of the school was cordoned off and students were directed to the front entrance but, by 8:30
a.m., the two remaining bears had been removed from the garbage bin and posed no danger to students, she said. Quinton confirmed the dumpsters are supposed be locked at night and said an investigation will be conducted into why it was left open. S h e s a i d bl a ck b e r r y bushes around the school were also recently removed to avoid attracting bears. see SCHOOL IS IN IN,, page 4

HOMELESSNESS: Homeless advocates put together those in need with those who can help them
Making connections & helping Non-profits, businesses and government come together to help the homeless in Tri-Cities
Society writes the book on survival
Articles by Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Local businesses, government agencies, church groups and volunteers are coming together next Tuesday to provide support and services to people who are homeless or living on the margins. With winter on the way, the Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group and its partners are organizing the Oct. 18 event to connect people with services such as health care and counselling as well as to give them hair cuts, food, winter clothes, bike repairs and other necessities. “If we are going to hold it once a year, this is the time to do it,” said the chair of the task group, Sandy Burpee, who expects about 75 people to turn out to Tri-Cities Connect Day at Grace Church in Port Coquitlam. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and follows Homelessness Action Week Oct. 10 to 16. This is the third year the group has organized the event and Burpee said this is the largest so far, with several agencies reaching out to help people struggling with issues such as poverty, homelessness, mental health and other issues. Among the service providers that will be on hand that day will be Fraser Health, which will provide vaccines; Tri-Cities Mental Health, which will provide counselling services; and the Ministry of Social Development, which will help people with income assistance problems. Douglas College will also be on hand to provide eye health exams and glasses to those who need them; Dr. Helen Chang will provide foot care; and Norco will provide bike repairs. Local schools are also involved, with students from Our Lady of Assumption elementary serving lunch and those from Dr. Charles Best secondary assisting as greeters and escorts. The local Soroptimist group will do makeovers for women and Share Family and Community Services will have a legal advo-
A guide to help homeless people find food, clothes, shelter, government services and jobs is making it easier to connect people with resources in the Tri-Cities, says the chair of the Society for Community Development. Cathy Burpee said her group produced the Tri-Cities Street Survival Guide to answer questions for people who fall on hard times and those who want to help them. “It’s more for people who deal with homeless people,” Burpee said, noting it’s a handy guide for people who have friends or relatives facing difficulties, too. The two-page document lists resources ranging from community policing offices to government agencies, from outreach services to clothing and food banks. The latest edition is being produced in time for Homelessness Action Week this week. Those interested in obtaining a TriCities Street Survival Guide can get one at local libraries or download and print a copy at www.societyforcommunitydevelopment.com. Local police also have them in their duty bags and hand them out as necessary, Burpee said. A street survival guide for families is now being developed and should be available by next spring.

Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group chair Sandy Burpee says Connect Day — Tuesday, Oct. 18 — will be an opportunity to provide support and services to homeless people. Many groups and businesses will be on hand to provide everything from food, to clothes, counselling and bike repair at Grace Church, 2606 Kingsway Ave., Port Coquitlam. cate on hand. Food hampers will be provided by Grace Church while Telus will give out hygiene kits, counselling will be provided by Tri-City Transitions and Coquitlam Public Library will offer library services. Many other local businesses are also helping out, including ABC Printing, Sandpiper Signs and Decals, Speedpro Imaging, Starbucks, Universal Flagging, Save-On Foods, Safeway, Marble Slab Creamery, Vancity Savings, Underground Hair Salon and Canadian Tire. Connect Day will augment the work of local churches, outreach workers, community volunteers and the mat program to create pathways out of homelessness, Burpee
said, and experience has shown participants appreciate the services. While homeless numbers are down in the Tri-Cities, food bank use has risen since the economy stalled, Burpee said, and there are still many people living on the margins who need help connecting up with services. “They’re still on the street, they’re still around, they still need our support, our understanding and compassion.” To let people know about Connect Day, outreach workers, the RCMP and food bank volunteers will be handing out business cardsized invitations. firstname.lastname@example.org
Civic candidates to go to school on housing issues Oct. 22 briefing session aims to inform council candidates Educating Tri-City civic candidates about homelessness and the need for more affordable housing is the goal of a briefing session next week in Port Coquitlam. The Society for Community Development and the Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Force will be hosting the event Oct. 22 in the hopes that candidates incorporate the issues in their platforms for the upcoming civic election. “This is information for the candidates to consider,” said SCD chair Cathy Burpee,
“We will not be polling them at the end.” Candidates will, however, be asked to think of three actions they might take to improve affordable housing options if they are elected. “The municipalities all have tools they can use to promote affordable housing,” Burpee said, noting that cities need a range of housing, from subsidized rental apartments to single family homes. Shortages along the continuum — such as too few market rental apartments or not enough subsidized rental housing — will mean people can’t move up while others might be at risk of losing their homes altogether. “If there are housing jams, there is no

As your life changes, so can your jewelry
movement,” Burpee explained. Candidates will be asked to consider issues such as the home ownership affordability gap and candidates will also find out more about the causes of homelessness, which Burpee said isn’t all created by addiction and poor choices. People also become homeless when their community lacks housing options, she said. While the number of homeless people is dropping, Burpee said the issue continues to be important because many young people who grew up in the area can’t afford to live here and people struggling with poverty are also having a hard time finding a place to live at an affordable price.
During the last municipal election in 2008, 45 candidates attended a similar session and Burpee said she hopes similar numbers of candidates attend this time. The press and the public are not invited to the event because it’s for information sharing only.
• The All-Candidates Briefing Session on Homelessness and Housing will be held Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to noon at The Outlet at Leigh Square, 1100-2253 Leigh Sq., PoCo. Candidates’ attendance can be confirmed by emailing email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org

School plans protect students from bears THE TRI-CITY NEWS
This year is turning out to be one of the busiest for bears in the Tri-Cities, with 15 killed so far, including one whose cubs got caught in a school dumpster Wednesday. But School District 43 says students are well taken care of when bears are in the area. The district’s health and safety manager, Wendy Bennett, said recently that SD43 takes seriously its job of protecting children when bears are around and kids know that when air horns or whistles blow, it’s time to get indoors. Sometimes, students aren’t even allowed to head home after school until the bears leave the property and, occasionally, parents are called to escort children home. “If there’s been a bear sighting in the neighbourhood, they always ensure the kids are not alone. The smaller ones, we encourage an adult to be them, as well,” Bennett said. The district has had a bear safety protocol since 2008 and it’s reviewed during assemblies and staff meetings. Before that, most schools had their own protocols to respond to bears, Bennett noted. Craig Mah, who previously

If bears are spotted on school property, kids are kept inside and may even be delayed going home at the end of the day, according to School District 43. was principal at Coquitlam River elementary and helped develop the protocol, said he made it a habit to check the school perimeter for bears before allowing students to step outside. Now at Heritage Mountain elementary in Port Moody, Mah takes similar precautions and asks neighbours and parents to call him if they see a bear. He recently posted a newsletter with bear safety tips on the school’s website. “Living in Port Moody, you’re living with bears,” Mah said. “It’s just a fact of life.” Dr. Charles Best secondary,
which was rated high in a 2007 bear hazard assessment by the city of Coquitlam, now locks its garbage bins after bears were found foraging in them and Bear Aware and the RCMP are usually contacted after a bear sighting to make sure the area is safe. Principal Mary O’Neill said in an email the district protocol is used at the school and bears haven’t been a problem. “In my experience, the bears were simply travelling through our site,” she said. “They never displayed aggressive behaviour towards students.” email@example.com
‘School is in wildlife habitat’ developed area,” Doyle told The Tri-City News. Summit middle school is a lowto-moderate hazard school even though the property is along the Scott Creek corridor frequented by bears, according to a 2006 Bear Hazard Assessment conducted by consultants hired by the city of Coquitlam. The report recommended blackberry bush removal, regular emptying of trash bins and locking the dumpster. Coquitlam Bear Aware coordinator Drake Stephens said he conducted a routine site visit to the school just last week and found the school grounds clean

A B.C. Conservation Officer confirmed the female bear was destroyed and the three cubs taken to Critter Care wildlife refuge in Langley. But Insp. Chris Doyle also noted the mother bear had become habituated to garbage and was not a suitable candidate for relocation. “Based on the conflict history of the sow, it was determined she was not a candidate for translocation and was also not safe to leave in the community due to the food conditioning behaviour as well as history of being in an urban or
and noted garbage was emptied on a regular basis. “I think this school is in wildlife habitat and, because of its location, they see wildlife frequently and they’ve been doing a pretty good job. This is an unfortunate event,” he said. So far, 15 bears have been destroyed in the Tri-Cities this year, all but two of them euthanized because they had become habituated to human garbage. Two bear cubs were sent to Critter Care this summer when their garbage-habituated mother was destroyed after threatening a man walking his dog. firstname.lastname@example.org

Port Moody council isn’t ready to take back the Murray-Clarke corridor from TransLink without first talking about some other options. On Tuesday, a trio of councillors agreed that a meeting should be held with TransLink to see if anything could be done to reduce traffic gridlock now that the longplanned Murray-Clarke Connector is no longer on the immediate horizon. TransLink will be asked to participate in a “visioning exercise” with council to see if pedestrian, cyclist, transit and commuter improvements can be made to
“You either treat it as an inter-municipal road by giving us an overpass or you give it up.” Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini boost the “people-moving” capacity of the corridor. “We still have not spoken to TransLink,” said Coun. Mike Clay, who suggested a meeting be held to see what could be done to improve the corridor, including diverting the traffic elsewhere. “Tell us where the cars are supposed to go,” he added. The decision to meet
with TransLink comes on the heels of a report showing that removing the corridor, including Guildford Way, from the Major Road Network would leave the city on the hook for maintaining and improving the route. According to the report, it could cost taxpayers nearly $500,000, annualized over 33 years, to take over the route — the equivalent of a 1.86% tax
increase. One of the biggest cash outlays would be a full upgrade of the Moody Street overpass at the end of its lifespan in 2044, estimated at $4.2 million. The report also offers several scenarios for closing off the route to traffic from outside the city but acknowledges minor tweaks would do little to reduce traffic along the corridor while removing the Moody Street overpass altogether would send cars to other roads, including St. Johns, while also boosting transit use. Coun. Diana Dilworth, who voted in favour of meeting with TransLink along with Coun. Gerry Nuttall, said more buses and other options should be explored for reducing
traffic along the corridor. “There’s got to be an in-between other than taking it back.” But the city’s mayor is doubtful a meeting will accomplish anything. Joe Trasolini said the city should play “hardball” with TransLink. “You either treat it as an inter-municipal road by giving us an overpass or you give it up,” Trasolini said. TransLink has backed off on plans to build the connector, stating in a business case that the economic benefits wouldn’t justify the estimated $69 million cost. Coun. Bob Elliott also disagreed that a meeting would accomplish anything and voted against it. email@example.com
Underpass gets in way of walking: report Safety just one concern about PoCo underpass By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A report examining the walkability of downtown Port Coquitlam does not address the biggest impediment to mobility in the neighbourhood: the Shaughnessy Street underpass. That was the message from several PoCo councillors Tuesday evening as council adopted the Pedestrian Circulation Study, a document that makes several recommendations to improve walkability in the area. “I continue to be challenged on the basis of that underpass,” said Coun. Mike Forrest. “We need to address that... It is not dealt with in any specific way.” Coun. Glenn Pollock agreed with Forrest, saying many people do not feel safe using the underpass, which connects Shaughnessy Square and the new Onni tower with the downtown core. The study mentions some of the problems associated with the underpass, saying the walkway is narrow and has minimal lighting; it is not inviting for pedestrians, the report states, and seniors are generally hesitant to walk through the area. While the underpass was outside the scope of the study, the report states the city needs to review the structure and make major improvements to both pedestrian and vehicle circulation. New lighting fixtures, a walkway surface and handrails that match the existing downtown streetscape theme would also be beneficial in the short
term, the report noted. Shaughnessy between Kingsway and Kelly avenues is identified as the primary pedestrian route while major routes such as Elgin, McAllister, Whyte, Bury, Maple and Wilson are also included. Nodes were also identified and recommendations were made that would make the area
more walkable, adding components such as site furnishings, paving details and street crossings. The plan will become a part of the city’s planning guidelines for new developments in the downtown area. The first proposed project will extend the walkway along Donald Street between Wilson Avenue
and Leigh Square, adding sidewalks and lighting along the route. As PoCo’s downtown area becomes more densely populated, the city suggests more people will choose to walk when doing their shopping or visiting amenities. The Pedestrian Circulation Study was commissioned in 2009 in order to identify signifi-

“That’s what will make the difference in the TriCities: its diverse, rich and cultural population that it’s known for is just sensational.”
5 REASONS WHY HYUNDAI IS THE BEST-SELLING CAR BRAND IN CANADA.
“In the arts, you have to do what you’re passionate about but if you can find something that links different people together, then you’re on to something really worthwhile that’s engaging and enriching. “And that’s what will make the difference in the Tri-Cities: its diverse, rich and cultural population that it’s known for is just sensational.” Gaze will be the keynote IN QUOTES speaker at this month’s first annual regional summit hosted by ArtsConnect, the Tri-Cities’ arts council. The day-long event, to be held on Oct. 25 at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam, will feature dozens of local arts representatives and artists — some of them meeting for the first time — trying to find ways to partner as well as to give the Tri-Cities’ arts scene a boost and a clearer direction for ArtsConnect. “It’s a chance for people to make new connections and reconnect,” ArtsConnect executive director Helen Daniels said. “It’s to take people out of their normal, daily routines, share ideas and get re-energized about what it is we do for a living.” The summit comes three weeks after Port Moody — also known as the City of the Arts — wrapped up its most successful arts festival in three years. It also comes as Christopher the city of Coquitlam begins to Gaze launch its new tourism strategy and economic development plan, aimed at attracting events, festivals and sporting events. Besides Gaze, who will open the summit with a 15-minute talk about his favourite topic — Shakespeare — participants will also hear from a panel that will lead a discussion on what it’s like to be an artist working in the Tri-Cities. Other speakers and performers scheduled are: Marianne LaRochelle, ArtsConnect president (and a Tri-City Newss sales rep); Graham Myers of Second Storey Theatre; and Lori Baxter, an arts sector consultant who will talk about connecting with audiences in our backyard. Graphic illustrator Gay Mitchell will be documenting the event throughout the day and there will be break-out times for participants to brainstorm. As for Gaze, he said he’s pleased to encourage others in the arts world “to fight the good fight with all their might, because the arts is glorious but it’s a hard life trying to help animate the world.” • Tickets for ArtsConnect’s regional arts summit are available until Monday. The Oct. 25 event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Vancouver Golf Club (771 Austin Ave.) and will be followed by ArtsConnect annual general meeting and reception.

Rooftop antenna step towards PoMo radio By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Radio waves in the Tri-Cities may soon be buzzing with the sound of music, local news, traf fic and weather with the approval this week of a radio antenna on top of a tower in Newport Village. Tuesday, Port Moody council approved a height variance for the antenna, which will be placed on top of Sentinel tower at 290 Newport Dr. Local broadcaster Matthew McBride has been approved for a CRTC license for radio and plans to have the radio station at 98.7 FM operating in time for the Nov. 19 civic election. “You will be able to hear the outcome of the civic election,” McBride predicted after council approved the antenna, which will be about 10 feet taller than city bylaws usually allow for a communications antenna. Some councillors expressed concern about the safety and visual aesthetics of the 14.7foot structure after some residents wrote in complaining about it.
Try something new this Fall! Birthday Parties and more
DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Matthew McBride plans to set up a radio station in Port Moody, a project that has been in the works for several years. McBride said the antenna will use lower frequency radio waves than those emitted by cellphones and pointed out the antenna was approved by the tower’s strata council. And he said every effort will be made to disguise the antenna, including using special paint, and most people will never see the tower because it’s on top of a 24-storey building. Still, McBride has several hurdles to clear before he can get the radio station running. Engineers need to find time to install the antenna, Industry Canada has to test the signal
and work still needs to be done at a studio on Moray Street. However, McBride, who owns three other radio stations in Tofino, Ucluelet and Pemberton, said he’s been running the station off air for months to work out all the bugs. When broadcasting begins, he expects people in Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam and part of Pitt Meadows to hear the signal. Mayor Joe Trasolini absented himself from the vote because he owns the building where the station is located. email@example.com

Bridge too far
PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
Q WHAT WE THINK:
urning the old Port Mann Bridge into a park instead of tearing it down is one of the more intriguing ideas to come out of Metro Vancouver. Judging by website traffic and media coverage, the idea quietly floated by Metro’s new metropolitan planning, regional parks and environment manager Gaetan Royer last week has generated a lot of support. No doubt, many who’d like to see a leafy greenway on the old bridge spent at least part of their life trying to get on or off the nearly 50-year-old span. Could it be done? Technically, yes, and many other cities have reclaimed road and rail infrastructure for park. Problem is, it’s too late. The bridge builders say the land is needed for the new bridge approaches and there are maintenance costs to consider. Still, what a novel idea to turn a major headache for drivers into a soothing greenway for people who like to walk or cycle.
Q WHAT DO YOU THINK? VOTE ONLINE:
THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: Do you think turning the current Port Mann Bridge into a park is an idea worth pursuing?
LAST WEEK’S QUESTION: Do you think having a new statutory holiday in February is a good idea?

Family Day holiday will cost small biz dearly AS I SEE IT Shachi Kurl
confess: I am a terrible auntie. A close friend had a baby six whole weeks ago and I still haven’t found the time to go see the child. No wonder, then, that as we collectively struggle for an elusive work-life balance, the prospect of more time off is manna to hungry souls. Premier Christy Clark knows this, and knows politically, she’s on the side of the angels by introducing a new statutory holiday for British Columbia in the throne speech: Family Day. The idea having even earned a serious thumbs-up from arch-rival and Opposition Leader Adrian Dix, I realize the optics and positioning of saying anything other than “Yea, Family Day!” are tricky. But I am willing to be painted as a black-hearted harpy if it allows me to explain why this move may be smarter politics than policy.
The popular appeal of another holiday is undeniable. Also undeniable: the costs to employers and taxpayers. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) asked and the province can’t or won’t say how much more we’ll all pay for increased public sector labour costs on Family Day (nurses, first responders and other essential service workers will all be eligible for hefty holiday pay). But we have done the math on behalf of our 10,000 small business members in B.C., and estimate that Family Day will cost small business owners $1,135 each, in labour costs alone. How did we get to that number? Earlier this year, we went to Statistics Canada and found B.C.’s average hourly wage in 2009, the most recent figure available at the time. We assumed employees working a statutory holiday are working eight hours. And we calculated labour costs based on a small business with an average of five employees. We chose five because, according to the most recent Small Business Profile published by the
TRI-CITY NEWS [CCAB AUDITED CIRCULATION 53,146 (MARCH 2009)] 1405 Broadway St., Port Coquitlam, B.C. V3C 6L6 telephone: 604-525-6397 • fax: 604-944-0703
provincial government, 82% of small businesses in this province are micro-businesses. And that $1,135 doesn’t factor in energy and utility costs, or the potential for lost sales. There may be some sectors that won’t be hit so hard. Restaurants, for example, may see an uptick as everyone goes for brunch. But most small business owners — family people themselves — will face some difficult Family Day choices: close and risk losing irritated customers or open and pay time and a half plus an average day’s pay to their staff, or even try to mind the shop on their own, forced to put earning their daily bread ahead of spending time with their own loved ones. Why are we getting this holiday? Notwithstanding the feel-good factor (which, I grant, is powerful), it is worth noting that with Family Day, B.C. would theoretically tie for first in Canada in terms of statutory holidays while ranking seventh in the country on productivity, according to the BC Progress Board. Is this really the time for us to be taking our foot off the productivity gas pedal? And will this holiday really be as fantastic
as it sounds? Consider the Ontario model, where the introduction of Family Day in 2007 didn’t necessarily mean an extra day off. That’s because employers there can swap the day for any other non-statutory holiday that employees are entitled to. The result? Some workers may have to choose one holiday over the other. Nor do federal employees in Ontario get a paid Family Day. There is no doubt that we benefit from having a bit of a rest and a catch-up with our near and dear. But ask yourself, who really benefits the most from this announcement? It’s the B.C. government, which gets credit of giving you a present while quietly slipping all of us the receipt. Kind of like a husband sending his wife flowers and charging the in-laws credit card — every year. That scenario doesn’t necessarily make for happier families. And it won’t fix my bad-auntie behaviour. I’ll have to do that on my own.

FACE TO FACE: Canada vs. America, blue collar vs. white collar, Tim’s vs. Starbucks?
Tim’s: good java and giving, too I
f you like to drink coffee as much as I do, you have likely enjoyed a good a cup of java at many of the local coffee joints in the Tri-Cities. My colleague opposite prefers Starbucks but, for me, there’s no better place for a cup a coffee than Tim Hortons. I would argue that Timmy Ho’s is cheaper, has a wider selection of food and snacks, is generally open longer hours (some even 24 hours) and, most importantly, has greattasting coffee. I don’t need to tout too loudly, however, because the statistics back me up: Eight out of every 10 cups of coffee sold in Canada are poured at Tim Hortons locations. All that aside, I feel more patriotic when I go to a Tim Hortons versus a Starbucks. While it’s true they merged with U.S.-based Wendy’s International in 1995, Tim Hortons completed an initial public offering in March 2006 and was fully spun off as a separate company. Nevertheless, Tim Hortons is an iconic brand in this country. The coffee chain/restaurant, named after a legendary Maple Leaf defenceman, began operation in Hamilton, Ont. in 1964 and has since grown into the largest quick-service-
restaurant in Canada with 3,148 stores. By comparison, Starbucks only has 1,095 stores in Canada. Moreover, my colleague would be hard-pressed to find any company in Canada that does more in the community than Tim Hortons. For over four decades the company has been a great corporate citizen. Annually, the company donates more than $15 million through community initiatives such as the smile cookie campaign, the earn-a-bike program, summer swimming events and food drives. Tim Hortons also sponsors more than 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits jerseys or t-shirts, and are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at junior, American Hockey League and National Hockey League games. They also sponsor curling’s Brier Cup, as well as teams in the Canadian Football League and National Hockey League. How much more Canadian can you get, eh? I’m not saying Starbucks is all bad but I always have time for Tim Hortons.
Starbucks: just a better cup of joe
or my wife and me, it’s not even close. Starbucks coffee is richer, deeper and consistent wherever you buy it. Even the most committed Tim Hortons disciple will admit that Tim’s coffee is inconsistent from location to location. While Starbucks coffee has a distinctive, predictable taste, it is difficult to distinguish Tim’s coffee from a good cup of coffee made at home in a Mr. Coffee. So it’s clearly not Tim’s coffee that evokes the strong, almost nationalistic attachment so many feel to Tim Hortons — it’s the ritual. As a young teacher, I could not start my day without a 20 oz. coffee from 7-Eleven. Years later, at a school with no 7-Eleven nearby, I realized that the coffee was, in fact, awful. The staff room coffee I was forced to drink was much better, but you couldn’t have convinced me of that when my convenience store coffee stop was a daily ritual. And so it is with Tim Hortons. It’s not fabulous coffee but a strong cultural habit. Tim Hortons enjoyed 20 years as the unopposed destination coffee chain in eastern Canada. Tim’s became a part of life, a last pleasure before work. On the streets
“Tim Hortons sponsors more than 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada. ” Andy Radia

of eastern cities, a Tim’s cup became ubiquitous — symbolically Canadian. Then along came Starbucks with its pretentious jargon, its western genesis (shudder) and its venti skinny caramel macchiatos. “I just want my Tim’s,” cry Tim’s lovers when faced with Starbucks. They dismiss the brew from the Seattle-based giant as a boutique place for Lotuslanders and networkers while Tim’s has become the coffee of working Canadians. Like the aforementioned young teacher, the taste buds of the Tim’s nation lost their objectivity to an ingrained habit. Frankly, I wish Tim Hortons did serve better coffee than Starbucks. Always a supporter of working Canadians, it is difficult for me to throw in my lot with the iPad, halfcaf, let’s-do-lunch Starbucks crowd. Unfortunately, the coffee is better at Starbucks and worth the special stop. Clearly, better coffee costs the same at Starbucks as at Tim’s. Like me, you don’t have to use jargon or wear designer-label clothes — and you get to doctor your own coffee and sit in an overstuffed chair listening to Sarah McLachlan.

What’s next for R’view? Agriculture in park? The Editor, Riverview Hospital is scheduled to close its doors next year. What are the intentions of Premier Christy Clark and her BC Liberals? Are there any plans in the works for Riverview Hospital and its 244 priceless acres? You can almost bet the farm that it will be, “tear it down and build a residential development.” And will these valuable lands be sold off to the developer friends of the provincial government? On July 4, I emailed Premier Clark (and have to give her full points for the speedy reply the next day). What was her reply? She passed it on down the line to Stephanie Cadieux, then the minister of labour, citizens’ services, and (get this) open government. Well, we are now into October and there hasn’t been a word, not even a peep from Ms. Cadieux and I believe she has been given a new portfolio. So, will I ever hear from her replacement on this delicate subject? I doubt it. You may not be aware that the city of Coquitlam has applied to the Federal Government to have the Riverview Lands recognized as a National Historic Site. But
TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO
The letter writer calls on the province to preserve Riverview Hospital. the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada (HSMBC) informed the city that the application could not be advanced because it isn’t able to obtain approval from the landowners — namely, the B.C. government. The city had requested, unsuccessfully, a letter of endorsement well over a year ago. The Riverview Horticultural Centre Society has an ongoing letter writing campaign in support of the city’s application to have Riverview deemed a National Historic Site. As a National Historic Site,
Riverview could still serve the mentally ill, have a research centre, a conference centre, and a college/university, to focus not only on health care training but, also, on research into mental health treatments. In addition, its horticultural and architectural legacy could be a valued and valuable tourist attraction. We should be taking a second look and consider fully utilizing our existing provincial mental health hospital. De-institutionalization is obviously not working.

The Editor, Re. “Some perspective on Colony Farm plan” (Green Scene, The Tri-City News, Oct. 7). I appreciate columnist Elaine Golds’ detailed account of the Colony Farm Land Use Plan of 1995. She notes that plan was based on three values: agriculture, recreation, and wildlife. Ironically, the 1995 steering committee, which included Burke Mountain Naturalists (BMN), planned to farm the agricultural fields. The revenues would fund recreation and wildlife activities at Colony Farm — a good idea. Today, BMN is opposed to commercial agriculture at Colony Farm because it is a park. In contrast, in Ontario, small-scale urban farmers are being welcomed with leases on agricultural lands in national and provincial parks. Instead of saying “no” to commercial agriculture, we should be discussing criteria for how farming should be done and how revenues will be returned to the park. Ms. Golds stated that BMN is not opposed to agriculture at Colony Farm, as evidenced by its support for expansion of community/allotment gardens. Since both agriculture and gardening involve growing things, the naturalists can be forgiven for thinking

that community gardens are a form of agriculture. They aren’t. Agriculture refers to field cultivation and management. The land designated for agriculture in the 2011 draft plan is 187 acres. In contrast, a plot in the existing community garden measures 0.006 acre. Extreme subdivision of 187 acres among a great many gardeners makes it impossible to steward the land in an integrated, holistic way. Community/allotment gardens are a valued recreational activity but they are not agriculture. The Burke Mountain Naturalists are dedicated wildlife advocates. I value their perspective on wildlife. But BMN’s ideas for Colony Farm embrace only two of the three values of the 1995 Land Use Plan. They have yet to say “yes” to environmentally sensitive agriculture, which could provide so many benefits to the park, the community and even to wildlife. They express no desire to see a return to the proud tradition of farming on the agricultural fields of Colony Farm. The question for readers remains: Should the prime agricultural land at Colony Farm (under a third of the park’s total area) be used for agriculture, in keeping with both the word and the intent of the 1995 Land Use Plan?

More delays in Sater case Stories by Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
There’s still no trial date set in the case of the man accused of killing two women in a hit-andrun accident earlier this year. A hearing to set a date for trial for Cory Sater was adjourned Thursday as lawyers for both sides work out details about how many witnesses they intend to call. An arraignment hearing for Sater was also postponed and the next appearance date is set for later this month.
The charges stem from a hitand-run collision near the intersection of the Lougheed Highway and Pitt River Road last spring in which Lorraine Cruz and
Charlene Reaveley were killed. Reaveley is believed to have stopped to assist Cruz, who had been involved in a minor accident, when they were both struck by a passing vehicle that also hit and seriously injured Cruz’s friend, Paulo Calimahin. Thursday’s adjournment is the latest delay in a number. The matter has come before a judge 11 times without being able to fix a date for trial, largely due to the fact that the defence had not received all of the disclosure it required from the prosecution. firstname.lastname@example.org

Coquitlam RCMP is asking for the public’s help to identify a man they believe stole a $700 iPhone from a Rogers store earlier this month. On Oct. 8, a Caucasian man believed to be in his 20s asked an employee at the store if he could look at a new 16 gB iPhone 4. When the employee looked away for a few moments, the suspect quickly slipped out the door. Police believe the man was involved in a similar incident in Port Coquitlam. Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2011-28714.

Funds are needed to Move That Bus PoCoMo Youth Services launch new campaign By Jennifer Gauthier THE TRI-CITY NEWS
For many youths, the bus is a frequent mode of transportation, delivering them to school, home and work. For some Tri-City young people, one bus d e l ive r s s o m e t h i n g else: help. And the group behind the Project Reach Out bus is now asking for help of its own. P o C o M o Yo u t h Services Society and a local restaurateur are teaming up for Move That Bus, a fundraising initiative benefiting Project Reach Out. The campaign will launch with a lunch Oct. 18 at Fred Soofi’s Pasta Polo, with the meal provided in exchange for a donation to the charity. PoCoMo has never r e c e ive d o p e r a t i n g funding and operates Project Reach Out from donations from the community and charitable foundations. The service supports at-risk youth in the Tri-Cities by bringing services to them via Canada’s first mobile drop-in centre. A team of adult youth workers, peer mentors and volunteers travel in the evening to areas of the community where yo u t h s c o n g re g at e, such as parks, convenience stores and schools, and provide access to drug and alcohol education, referrals to community agencies and other support. “We have a consistent presence every Friday and Saturday night from 7 p.m. to midnight and we provide a safe place for youth to go.” said Jerome Bouvier, executive director of PoCoMo. The main goal of the Move That Bus campaign is to sign up 500 people for monthly donations of $20 to raise more than $100,000 a year, half of the minimum amount required to fund the organization for a year. “One thousand people donating $20 a month would provide the base funding for the program,” Bouvier said. “It would help a minimum of 2,000 kids a year.” The second goal of the campaign is to raise $10,000 over the next six months with the A Toonie in the Tank program. Coin
donation boxes have been placed at various restaurants and businesses in the Tri-Cities, and they will collect change for PoCoMo. “It costs the government something like $70,000 to put services into a homeless adult, so for every one that we prevent from pushing a shopping cart, we save B.C. $70,000,” Bouvier said. “But we can’t get $70,000 from the province. “We’ve clearly demonstrated our success in providing services. We’re just asking for help. Provincially, from our community, from local businesses and corporations, help us to continue to serve the young people who we
care so much about. They could be your son, your daughter, your granddaughter, your grandson — it’s that simple.” “As a businessman, I encourage more businesses to get involved,” said Soofi. “It’s an investment in our youth and our community. It will have long-term returns.” • T he Move T hat Bus campaign launch takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at Pasta Polo, ( 2 7 5 4 B a r n e t H w y. , Coquitlam) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit www. pocomo.org, or follow PoCoMo on Twitter at twitter.com/pocomoyouth. email@example.com

Tax breaks for PoMo heritage homes? By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Renovations and upgrades to character homes and commercial buildings in Moody Centre could be eligible for tax breaks next year if Port Moody council approves a new tax exemption bylaw. The bylaw must pass a public notification period to get final adoption but it sailed smoothly through Tuesday’s council meeting. “It’s taken a lot of research, understanding and learning,” said Coun. Diana Dilworth. “I’m definitely in support of this.” The city expects up to four to five property owners a year will take advantage of a property tax break that would reduce their annual tax bill depending on the cost of the renovation and the assessed value of the improvements. The tax breaks could last for between five and 10 years and would be for projects ranging from a new roof for a heritage house to the adaptive re-use of a commercial building to an addition and facade upgrades for an existing house. “It’s a relaxation of taxes that will assist in encouraging people to revitalize their homes,” explained Tim Savoie, PoMo’s director of planning and development services. To be eligible for a tax break, properties must be either listed on the city’s Heritage Register or located within the Moody Centre Heritage Conservation or Heritage Character Area. The exemption would require an agreement with the city setting out the conditions for the tax exemption, as well as a small administrative fee. In a report to council, three hypothetical scenarios detail potential tax breaks: • a $15,000 roof replacement on a singlefamily home on the Heritage Register in Moody Centre Heritage Conservation
EXEMPTIONS Port Moody churches, environmental and arts groups, Eagle Ridge Hospital and the community police station will get property tax breaks totalling $1.1 million next year. Most of the exemptions are statutory and required by the province but $82,000 is for permissive exemptions for property held by groups such as the Port Moody Heritage Society, the Royal Canadian Legion and Port Moody Ecological Society. The value of the permissive exemptions approved by PoMo council Tuesday is $17,700 less than in 2011 because assessments dropped and some properties were reclassified.
Area could result in a $7,080 tax break over 10 years; • a $438,000 heritage house restoration and rezoning for commercial use could net a $33,365 tax break over a 10-yearterm; • and a $120,000 addition and upgrade to a residential home in the Moody Centre Heritage Character Area could be eligible for a tax break worth $4,196 over five years. If the tax exemption bylaw is adopted as expected, the program would begin in 2012 with a public awareness campaign on the city’s website. Once the bylaw is in place, property owners would be encouraged to contact the planning department to see if their projects would be eligible and what the tax break could be. “That way, before they get into the project, they know what to expect,” Savoie said. firstname.lastname@example.org

DEVELOPMENT Port Coquitlam council is considering rezoning a piece of property at Shaughnessy Street and Prairie Avenue to allow for a 17-unit townhouse development.

Council voted unanimously in favour of the report and the application will come back for four more readings at council before the development can be approved.

A new neighbourhood in PoCo? By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A proposed development that would dramatically reshape the northeast section of Port Coquitlam’s Dominion Triangle cleared a significant hurdle Tuesday night. Councillors voted to grant third reading to an application, which calls for close to 650 townhouse and apartment units, a large amenity building and a new park for the area. “What you see before you is truly a sustainable neighbourhood,” said Laura Lee Richard, the city’s director of development services. “The scale of the neighbourhood is quite large.” The development, which is known as the
Dominion Riverfront, would feature high-performance, energy saving buildings that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Community garden plots and a ride share program are also expected to be part of the proposal, she added. Of the 650 units, 250 would be located in four apartment buildings and 298 townhouses would be located on six parcels. The large amenity building and public park would be open to the public but Richard said it would likely not be a destination area and would be geared to the local neighbourhood. “This is not intended to serve people from all over,” she said. “This is to serve those who might be walking the Traboulay [PoCo] Trail
or those who might live in the area... It will serve as an amenity to the local neighbourhood.” The developer is also responsible for building several roads in the area, including the extension of the Fremont Connector between Dominion Avenue and Lougheed Highway. A parking lot will also be built, creating a buffer between the residential and industrial portions of the property and allowing more people to access the TraboulayPoCo Trail. But not everyone on council is satisfied with the proposal. The residential portion is the second half of a two-part development application for a 42acre property that was originally zoned entirely
industrial. In order to make the application work Con-West, the site’s developer, worked out a deal with the city guaranteeing industrial development on a 17-acre portion providing it could use the rest of the land for residential property. Coun. Mike Forrest said the arrangement is short-sighted, adding that the loss of the industrial land means fewer high-paying jobs for local residents. “For continuity, I will be voting against this,” he said. “I still believe we have lost jobs in Port Coquitlam by losing a large chunk of property to a different use.” He did add, however, that the design proposal for the residential development is a “class act.” Coun. Sherry Carroll
also voted against the proposal, saying the highdensity development was too far from services and transit. The property’s isolation would create an island effect and clog local roads with traffic, she said.

Port Moody residents will get a chance to weigh in on the merits of a 26-lot strata subdivision in Heritage Woods after city council agreed Tuesday to send it to public hearing. B u t at l e a s t o n e councillor isn’t so sure about the proposal by ParkLane even though the developer is planning to turn over 14.7 hectares (36.97 acres) for a park. “I will take time to contemplate [the project],” said Coun. Bob Elliott, who voted in favour of second reading for the rezoning and official community plan application to “let the public have at it.” The ParkLane proposal would finish off the Heritage Woods community, which has been 20 years in the making, by creating 26 strata lots for single-family homes on 3.7 hectares (9.2 acres) of land in an area designated Upland and Urban Reserve. The history of the property dates back to 1992, when an agreement determined that developable land above 325 m in elevation would require a detailed landuse plan. An earlier plan submitted by ParkLane for 27 lots was turned down by council. But local environmental groups are supporting this new proposal because it offers better stream protection for West Noons Creek and sets aside land for public park. City staff also support the proposed rezoning and official community plan amendments because they are consistent with current residential land use patterns. The proposed lots
would be large, up to 10,000 square feet, and the homes would have to be in design and character of adjacent neigh-

Two teachers working in Coquitlam were honoured last week with Prime Minister’s Awards. Jai Kyung Lee (left) of Kids Village Preschool and Edward Trovato (above), a music teacher at Gleneagle secondary, were two of 90 instructors across Canada to be recognized by PM Stephen Harper. Certificate of Excellence recipients receive a certificate and pin, along with a letter from the Prime Minister and a cash award for their schools.
The co-ordinator of Douglas College’s Stagecraft and Event Technology program has received an award recognizing his contributions to live performance. Coquitlam’s Drew Young (above) received the 2011 Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology award that recognizes an individual’s longstanding career achievement as an educator in a technical or related discipline, while preparing students for work within the Canadian live performance industry. Young, who graduated from the UBC Theatre Department in 1982, helped establish the two-year diploma program in 1987.
ROCKIN’ FOR PETS
Students at Hope Lutheran Christian school in Port Coquitlam will soon get a chance to develop their green thumbs with a community garden project at Colony Farm regional park in Coquitlam. The Grade 5 students have been given two plots for growing pumpkins, zucchini and squash in the community garden next spring. Younger students may get involved, too, in planting seeds and looking after the vegetables, and the harvest may be used for the Feeding the Homeless program run by Grade 8 students at Hope Lutheran. The students also plan to create art projects such as bird or mason bee houses for the Colony Farm Community Garden Association.
A rock ‘n roll fundraiser last Saturday in aid of the Coquitlam Animal Shelter howled in more than $1,500 for the facility. Two PEAK Performance Project bands, The Matinée and Redgy Blackout, played at the John B Pub along with Coquitlam duo Fera. Matt Rose of The Matinée said the cash was handed over Tuesday.

Mackin House Museum is getting ready for Halloween festivities with an eye to how Oct. 31 was celebrated early last century. Above right is volunteer Jeannette Frechette. There are, however, some citations referring to ritual begging in 1911, when a Kingston, Ont. newspaper describes smaller children street guising on Halloween between 6 and 7 p.m. By 1952, the custom of trick-or-treating was firmly established, some say to “bribe” children not to vandalize property on this spooky night. The jack-o-lantern was originally made from turnips and squash and designed to scare off evil spirits. There are a number of elaborate stories about a nasty “Jack” who is sentenced to walk the Earth forever with only a lantern made from a carved turnip and one coal to guide him. Pumpkins, which were widely available in the New World, were quickly adopted by the pioneers — they were sturdy, round and brightly coloured, a much better alternative to turnips. So what does all this mean for staging our authentic heritage Halloween at Mackin House? How do we manage to capture the spirit of 1909? Henry J. Mackin, our first resident, was an Irish immigrant from New York. We know the Irish were instrumental in bringing Halloween to North America. We also know that Halloween would have been celebrated inside the house — the children would not be outdoors with treat bags in hand. With this in mind, we focus on traditional pumpkin carving, handmade ghost wreaths, demonstrations of traditional food (the Irish served kale with boiled onions and potatoes… yum) and activities (apple bobbing on a string), traditional costumes, candy and popcorn. We never utter the phrase “Trick or treat.” Join us on Saturday, Oct. 29 from noon to 4 p.m. and live the experience of Halloween in 1909. And if you are curious, you can ask about the Mackin House haunting.

hat was Halloween like in 1909? Answering that question is the challenge we face in developing an authentic heritage Halloween program for Mackin House this year. Halloween has become a popular and fun celebration but it has a complicated past laced with grim superstitions. Today, we celebrate it on the night of Oct. 31 but there are a number of different notions of how this came about. The ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain was a celebration of the end of the harvest season, a time to take stock of supplies and get ready for winter. On Oct. 31, the ancients believed the boundaries between the world of the living and dead overlapped and there was a chance that the deceased might come back to wreak havoc. Thus, they started bonfires to scare off the dead (“bon” indicating bones of either animals or humans in the fire), attract bats and keep the insects away (very practical). Costumes would be used to mimic, appease or frighten the unleashed spirits of the dead. Because nothing of these customs was actually recorded, there are many different stories. Another version of Samhain characterizes it as the principal feast day of the year beginning on Nov. 1. The spirits of those who had died during the previous 12 months were granted access into the “otherworld” during this celebration. Food and drink were left out to comfort the wandering spirits. In truth, scholars know little about the actual practices and much of what we read is speculation. Trick-or-treating, a cornerstone of Halloween custom in North America, resembles the medieval practice of “souling,” wherein poor people would go door to door on Nov. 1 (Hallowmas) begging for food in return for offering prayers for the dead, which would be said on All Souls Day, Nov. 2. This custom originated in Ireland and Britain, although there are many examples of this throughout the world. There was no trick-or-treating in North America until the late 1930s (the first print mention of the term appeared in 1934), although there was certainly Halloween candy as early as 1906.

Seniors are urged to clean up for fall and bring their excess paper to Glen Pine Pavilion tomorrow (Saturday) for shredding. Home Instead Senior Care is hosting the shredding event to encourage seniors to clear out household clutter that could be causing a risk to their safety. Among the risks, experts say, is fire, falls from slipping on paper, and misplacing documents and important emergency numbers. At the event, seniors can dispose of the excess paper and cardboard for free from 10 a.m. to noon. As well, Cyclone Shredding, Klear Out, Good Riddance Professional Organizers and Glen Pine 50+ Society will also be on hand to help seniors dispose of unnecessary papers and cardboard. Home Instead Senior Care is a provider of non-medical home care and companionship for seniors in their homes and in care facilities. To register, call Glen Pine Pavilion at 604-9276945.

Brighten up those gardens & containers IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter
s the fall fades into the shorter, darker, wetter and cooler days of winter, we’re all looking to add some brighteners to our gardens and containers. We need plants that have some brilliance, toughness, hardiness and blend well with other winter colours. Some of the most overlooked plants are the ornamental kales and cabbages that are used so much around the world but not so much here. Part of the challenge is heavy winter rains on some of the very full headed varieties planted out in the open. If these same varieties are placed under the eaves of our houses, they will stand up very well. There are, however, varieties that will thrive out in the weather. Fringed varieties, like the ‘Coral’ and ‘Peacock’ series, are ideal because rather than trapping water they allow water to simply flow through. They come in white, pink and deep purple for an exquisite show. I also find that the later planted, smaller headed varieties have rather loose heads and do not hold water. The smaller four inch pots are ideal to mix in with containers and established plantings. The secret to having them look their best is colour blocking them together in groups. Whites, pinks and purples look so good together and create a brilliant winter display. Complementary companions are winter violas, pansies and dusty miller. Evergreen
grasses, such as carex, acorus and fescues, blend beautifully with ornamental kale and cabbage and make great focal points. Flowering kale is also a great accent for evergreen ground covers and looks fabulous as underplantings for trees and winter flowering shrubs like viburnum ‘Pink Dawn’. Hardiness is often more of an issue out in the Eastern Valley where exposure to extreme cold wind chills can cause their demise. Kale will take a good deal of frost, but when we get frost in excess of –10 degrees C. they’ll have some challenges. By using either ‘Remay’ cloth or the far better ‘DeWitt N-sulate’ when we get those severe outflow northeaster winds, you can keep them looking great. If we get a covering of snow before the severe cold, that would be an even better insulator. The newly introduced kales - ‘Red Bor’ (a ruffled deep purple), ‘Winter Bor’ (a green version of ‘Red Bor’) and ‘Laciniato‘ (a green-silver showpiece) - are three shining lights. If they have sun, they can take –25 degrees C. in their stride. All three are magnificent. Classy and elegant, they light up a winter garden. Curiously, they are also edible and delicious when they’ve had a little frost, and for special occasions, they make a great decoration on a plate. There’s a wide selection of ornamental kale and cabbage now available in the Lower Mainland. As your garden begins to lose its colour, these ornamental and colourful brassicas will add fresh new life. Give them a try – it’s a perfect time for planting them. Remember to bury them deep so they look like flowers popping out of the ground.

JAMES MACLENNAN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Les Wingrove has seen some dark days in the past year or so, with one of them coming when he was fired “out of the blue” as the Coquitlam Adanacs general manager after serving 20 years in that capacity.
Memories galore for long-serving Les Brighter days appear ahead for fired Adanacs general manager By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Les Wingrove’s lunch Wednesday at his favourite spot, White Spot, comprised a plain hamburger (sauce on the side), a salad and a diet Coke. His main staple the last 20 years was one monstrous helping of the Coquitlam Adanacs. Then came Sept. 29. That day, he may not have eaten at all. That’s when new club president Ed Ponsart officially announced via an emailed press release that a new general manager, Randy Delmonico, had been hired to replace Wingrove, who was not mentioned in the release. The next day, Wingrove said he’d been fired “out of the blue” a few days after the Western Lacrosse Association squad’s annual general meeting. (Ponsart did not respond to an opportunity to comment for this story.) The 67-year-old Wingrove was not interested in firing darts publicly at Ponsart or members of the Adanacs’ executive over a stunning dismissal, instead opting to cool his jets for a week before electing to talk only about the vast accomplishments the team achieved during his tenure and his many fond memories from having a huge ‘A’ emblazoned on his heart for two solid decades.
The tattoo has since been removed. “I have about 20 Adanac golf shirts and a dozen or so ball caps, jackets and whatever,” Wingrove told The Tri-City News in his first interview following his firing. “I’ll probably give them to some of the players or, if not, there’s always Goodwill.” Ironically, Wingrove was replete with goodwill while serving in his full-time volunteer GM post with the Adanacs, which included him attending “a trillion meetings” on the team’s behalf, arranging arduous practice and game schedules, and ensuring the right coaches and players were in place to make the A’s a first-rate organization. In the 20 years with the accountable and accessible Wingrove at the helm, the A’s made the playoffs 19 times, missing them for the first time this year by two points in a fierce seven-team, regular-season showdown for four berths. Under Wingrove, the A’s went to the WLA finals 15 times, moving on from four of those to the Mann Cup national championship, and winning their one and only Canadian title in a seven-game thriller with the Brampton Excelsiors in 2001 at Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum. Colin Doyle’s goal with 34.7 seconds remaining proved the winner in the 10-9 deciding game after the A’s rallied back from an 8-4 third-period deficit in front of about 8,000 crazed fans. Undoubtedly, it was Wingrove’s proudest, finest moment as the Adanacs’ GM. “The last three minutes of that game was a story in itself,” Wingrove recalled. “We
“I remember having one home phone and...my mother could never get a hold of me because it was always busy. So I got a second phone installed just so she could call.” Ex-Adanacs GM Les Wingrove
were down and out and all of sudden... bang. “I actually showed the film of the last three minutes to city council of that day. We made a presentation to the mayor and I don’t know what was going on there but there were a lot of people in [council] chambers. The people all stood up and gave us a standing ovation. It was quite exciting. “I still have the game tape.” Wingrove’s record not only speaks for itself, so does some of the many moves he made to bolster the squad to champion status. He traded to acquire kingpins Dan Stroup, Russ Heard, John Wilson and Curt Malawsky, among many other notables. He signed Ontario-born Andy Ogilvie, Colin Doyle, Jason Sanderson, Troy Cordingly and Jim Veltman as coveted free agents. And he miraculously remained in constant contact with all his players long before cellphones
and email became the norm. “We had an advantage but it was because our club had a very good reputation and players wanted to play here,” Wingrove said. “I remember having one [land line] phone and, when my mother was still alive, she could never get a hold of me because it was always busy. So I got a second phone installed just so she could call. I still have that number for my fax machine.” Wingrove paused to reflect on rising to the Sr. A’s from the Jr. A’s in 1989 with his son Trevor, a gifted player and, later, a city of Coquitlam official who lost his battle with cancer last year. At the time of Trevor’s illness, Wingrove gave up his home-based picture framing business and his position as a scout with the National Lacrosse League’s Colorado Mammoth. “I did it so I could spend more time with Trevor, obviously, and continue working for the Adanacs,” Wingrove said solemnly. “I wonder now if choosing the Adanacs was the right move.”Wingrove is certain his next move will be the right one. He’s taking his time while entertaining a handful of new lacrosse job offers, specifically two handsome ones from Jr. A and WLA squads. “I think I’ll still stay in the game but I want to be sure my duties are set in stone first,” he said. Wingrove prefers not to name names, even when it comes to paying tribute, due primarily to his ceaseless team-first philosophy. see COYLE TOP LEADER, page 50

Coyle top leader, Veltman top talent continued from page 49
But he offered these ones when pressed to respond to some best-of titles featuring explayers: • Best leader — Pat Coyle: “[Cur rent captain] Br uce Murray is going to kill me for saying that. Actually, all of our captains were good leaders.”
• Best pure talent — Jim Veltman: “He did things on the floor I’ve never seen before.” • Best in the clutch — Colin Doyle, Dan Stroup (tie): “Colin’s always been a winner and Dan scored some pretty big goals at key moments for us, too.” • Fiercest competitor — Andy Ogilvie, Curt Malawsky (tie): “Nobody messed with Andy and
Curt is just as intense as a coach as he was as a player.” • Best team clown — Jason Wulder, Jamie Hackel (tie): “Jason was always pulling my leg.. and Jamie, well, there are some stories you just can’t tell.” And there are some memories of the Coquitlam Adanacs that are only for Wingrove to cherish forever.

The CMFSC Sparta Win Bronze at the Canadian Soccer Under 16 National Championship Tournament COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER TEAM of the WEEK
The CMFSC Sparta had a strong tournament in a very tough pool matched against Alberta, Ontario, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. In the opening game Sparta were matched up against the Under 14 National Championship team, Edmonton Juventus. Sparta showed good composure in the ﬁrst half with keeping the ball possession and eliminating and keeping the strong Alberta forwards’ chances to a minimum. The man of the match was Jun Lee who made a brilliant save to keep it 0-0 at the half. Alberta capitalized in the ﬁrst 20 minutes of the second half with the ﬁrst goal of the game. The best moments of the game came after that as both teams stepped up the tempo and tried to swing the momentum. Juventus wanted to get the second goal and Sparta responded with an amazing determination to equalize. Sparta’s never die attitude was strong. The tying goal came after a lucky ﬂuke as our goalkeeper Jun Lee kicked a long ball towards the opponents net and the ball bounced perfectly over their goalkeeper to the empty goal. The game ended in a 1-1 tie. The biggest challenge in the second game vs. New Brunswick was dealing with the weather conditions as it was windy, cold with heavy rain at times. In the ﬁrst half we managed to be in control, but created only a few goal scoring opportunities. Lucas Krivak opened the scoring in the 38th minute by converting a penalty kick. The second half was a different story. Sparta players elevated their game to a high tempo with the wind at their back and pinned the New Brunswick team to their half. A very creative performance by the team resulted in 6 goals from the following players Alex Lazazzera (assist Edi Nyigwo), Jorge Bizuela (assist Domenic Brazinha), Aria Sarhangpour (assist Alex Lazazzera), Luigi Polisi
(unassisted), Michael North (unassisted), Edi Nyigwo (assist Lucas Krivak). Final Score 7-0. In the third game of the tournament Sparta faced their strongest opponent, Ontario. The ﬁrst half ended 0-0 with each team creating chances. Sparta opened the scoring with a goal from Edi Nyigwo (assist Lucas Krivak). The Ontario cup champion had two very strong strikers who went on to score two goals. The Team showed great team spirit in the last ten minutes of the game and did not quit after being down 2-1. They forced the Ontario team to defend, created a few chances and actually, in extra time in the last seconds, we had a glorious chance to equalize. The goalkeeper Jun Lee again had a very strong game with some outstanding saves. The last game in group play against Nova Scotia was a very important game, as a win gave Sparta a chance to play for bronze and a win for Nova Scotia gave them a possibility of going to the ﬁnal. The goalkeeper Jun Lee again made some quality saves in the ﬁrst half. Edi Nyigwo scored his third goal of the tournament (assist Jorge Brizuela). Jorge Brizuela (assist Domenic Brazinha) . Final Score 2-0 for Sparta putting them into the Bronze medal game. In the Bronze medal game Sparta had another strong performance. Winning 3-1 against Manitoba. Jorge Brizuela (assist Domenic Brazinha) opened the scoring and then Edi Nyigwo (assist Jorge Brizuela) followed up to make it 2-0. Manitoba fought back and scored to make it 2-1. Michael North (assist Giovanni Carida) sealed the victory with scoring to make it 3-1 the ﬁnal. Congratulations to the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Sparta for winning bronze at the Under 16 National Championship Tournament.

Fly fishing good for mind & soul From tying fly to look in eye
I have long known about the therapeutic value of fly fishing. Many of the youth who gravitated to our clubs when I was a youth fly fishing club coordinator were labeled “problem kids.” I did not find one who didn’t respond well to self-esteem building rudiments of tying flies
THE REPORT Fishing on our Lower Mainland and Interior lakes is good. The Fraser River is fishing well for spring, pink, chum and cutthroat.

U S I V E OF F CL
“Imagine your [mindset] when you are given a fly the size of a mosquito and a fishing line the diameter of a frog’s hair and you must thread the frog’s hair through a hole the size of an ant’s eye on the end of the fly… “Or the time I spent on the river bank untangling my fly from an evil shrub that sucked it in damn near every time I back-cast... but there I was in Colorado [River], standing in 35 degree [Fahrenheit] water… and having the time of my life.” –– Christine Stapleton, from her article Fly fishing and Bipolar.
and catching fish with one’s own creations. Aside from the ones who had much more drastic personal issues, one stands out from all the others –– a fellow with the initials MM. When MM came to us he talked in almost inaudible mumbles and would not look anybody in the eye. We welcomed him to our club and taught him to tie flies. He complained that his flies did not look very good. As always, I explained to him that looks were not as important as catching fish and that the fish would be the judge. His breakthrough came when we took him fishing. At one point, we heard yelling and screaming. Stunned, we all looked to see MM landing his first fish. Through the simple act of tying flies and catching fish with his flies, we saw MM build his self-esteem to where he was looking us in the eye and talking with confidence. How rewarding an experience for all.
