Coq. arrest in a credit card fraud case

PM battles on for MCC PoMo council says it may pull its support of Evergreen Line

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A 2 2 - ye a r- o l d wo m a n f r o m Coquitlam was one of six people arrested in Vancouver for suspected involvement in a major credit card fraud ring as a result of a joint investigation by identity theft police teams from Surrey and Vancouver. The members of the ring were allegedly using fake credit cards to buy items from online auction sites, then reselling the goods at cut-rate prices for cash. About $129,000 worth of goods were sold, police estimate.

Port Moody council may pull its support for the Evergreen Line if the Murray-Clarke Connector isn’t built. At a special meeting Tuesday, council again discussed the 32 requirements it says are critical to its support for Evergreen. Among them is building the connector before construction of the rapid transit line. But with TransLink struggling to cover the funding gap just to get Evergreen built — and pay for other needed transportation projects throughout the region — Murray-Clarke has fallen off the radar once again. “It’s one of the prerequisites of us going along with the Evergreen Line,” said PoMo Mayor Joe Trasolini of the connector. “We’re

very concerned that now it seems the Murray-Clarke Connector is being orphaned again. It’s nowhere on the priority list of TransLink” even though the previous board not only approved the project in 2008 but also allocated $50 million for its construction. Costs for the connector, which will have to be extended to reach over the SkyTrain line, are now estimated at more than $70 million. PoMo has set aside $4 million for the project. “Today, when we’re expecting it to be completed, all of a sudden TransLink doesn’t have it on its priority list,” Trasolini added. “It’s a great concern to us and should be to everyone east of us. It throws doubts on our support for construction of the Evergreen Line.” TransLink must come up with $400 mil-

Trasolini says Murray-Clarke must be built regardless of those funding issues. see NOT URGENT, URGENT, page A14

Permits required for firework displays Regulations vary depending on the city By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Flashes and pops from fireworks are becoming increasingly common with Halloween approaching but they’re mostly illegal, depending on which city you’re in. In Coquitlam the sale of fireworks is banned and people who buy them in other municipalities can only light them off after buying a $50 permit from the fire department. As well, permits are only issued to residents with access to property that has a 100 by 100 foot clearing, away from trees and neighbouring houses — eliminating the majority of homes in Coquitlam. In Port Coquitlam, the sale of fireworks is also prohibited and permits can be purchased from city hall for anyone who wishes to hold a display on their property. The permits are important, said PoCo fire chief Steve Gamble, because they let emergency officials know who is lighting off fire-

Fireworks are a popular item this time of year but the rules regulating their use are different depending on the municipality. works and where they are going to be. “It gives the police and ourselves a tool to deal with some of the problems,” Gamble said. “It helps our crews at night so they

know the areas where people are lighting them off.” While the sale of fireworks is prohibited in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, Port Moody has taken a different approach. In that mu-

nicipality, the sale of “non-nuisance” fireworks is allowed while the sale of items like screechers and skyrockets is banned. Port Moody Fire Department also requires that residents pick

Smoke detectors save lives, property: Stubbert By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Fawzia and Amin Hasham were fast asleep when a small electrical fire broke out in the furnace room of their home early Saturday morning. Even the smell of thick, black smoke pouring into their room did little to wake the Port Coquitlam couple. Only when their smoke detector sounded was the family able to realize what was happening, get out of the house and call 911. Fawzia Hasham credits the smoke detector for saving their home — and their lives — from a fire she said could have quickly grown out of control. “We didn’t notice anything,” she told The Tri-City News. “It saved our lives. We were able to get out of the house in time before inhaling all that smoke.” When firefighters arrived, they were able to quickly extinguish the small blaze, which did approximately $7,000 in damage, and pump carbon monoxide out of the home. The Hashams were able to return to the residence within hours. The city issued a press release this week about the small fire as a way of promoting the use of smoke detectors. Kerry Stubbert, assistant chief with Port Coquitlam Fire and Emergency Services, said smoke detectors save lives and property. In the case of the Hashams, he said the quick response allowed fire officials to get to the home and contain the flames before

they could spread. “This incident happened at 3 a.m. and that is when you are dead asleep,” said Stubbert. “You think you are going to smell smoke or hear something crackling but that just isn’t the case.” Stubbert added that many homes still do not have smoke detectors and, in those that do, the devices are often not maintained properly. Incidents like the one the Hashams experienced last weekend are good reminders of why smoke detectors are important, he said. The B.C. Fire Code requires that all homes and hotels have working smoke alarms on every level of their structure. Port Coquitlam Fire and Emergency Services also advises residents to: • have chimneys from wood-burning fireplaces inspected at least once a year or more frequently if used often; • ensure fireplaces have screens; • when buying new heating equipment, select products listed by an independent testing laboratory, choose a qualified installer and follow all codes and manufacturer’s instructions; • and keep the user guide and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for regular maintenance to ensure reliable, safe heating.

One moment to last a Lifetime

up a permit — for free — before holding a fireworks display on their property. In all three municipalities, fireworks are only allowed to be lit off on Halloween, Sunday, Oct. 31. “I think Port Moody has found a good balance,” said Remo Faedo, the city’s deputy fire chief. “In my opinion, I don’t want to take away the family fun aspect of it. I am quite happy that Port Moody has preserved fireworks once a year.” Faedo added that the permits let fire officials know where firework activities will be taking place so they can allocate their resources more efficiently. Despite the fact fireworks can be easily purchased in neighbouring Port Moody, both PoCo’s Gamble and Coquitlam Fire Chief Tony Delmonico said they have seen a reduction in incidents since their municipalities instituted bans on fireworks sales several years ago. “There is no question that the easier the availability the more abuse you are going to have,” Delmonico said. “If someone is hell-bent on getting them, they will, but this helps bring awareness.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Prolific offender nabbed by police

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Fawzia Hasham said a smoke detector saved her family and property from a fire on Saturday.

A prolific offender from Port Coquitlam is facing seven break-and-enter charges in relation to crimes committed throughout the Tri-Cities since September. And Coquitlam RCMP are crediting the crime reduction strategy for the arrest. The 36-year-old’s fingerprints, which were in the police database system following a previous conviction, matched several prints found at the scenes of three residential breakins in PoCo and one in Maple Ridge. Once the prints had been matched, the prolific target team set up surveillance on the suspect, which led police to a home where more than 500 stolen items valued at more than $30,000 were recovered. Some of the items include identification, televisions and other electronics, jewelry and a motorcycle. The goods are still being matched to other theft and break-and-enter investigations and additional charges for possession of stolen property are expected. The arrest comes a week after another successful investigation led to the recovery of two high-end bicycles valued at more than $12,000, which were returned to their rightful owner in Coquitlam. “It is always a great reward to see a lengthy investigation ending with a successful arrest,” said Sgt. Steve Reinhart, the prolific target team leader, in a release. “But the bonus here is to be able to return some precious belongings to some of the victims in our community.” Gregory Victor Dallyn was arrested Oct. 15 and remains in custody.

Some of the fake credit cars seized by Surrey RCMP and Vancouver Police Department officers in a raid last month that stopped what is thought to be a major fraud ring.

Coquitlam Mall Grand Re-opening

BLACK PRESS

Raid in September continued from front page

The activity was traced from Surrey to a Vancouver residence that was raided on Sept. 28. As police prepared to enter the home, they said, one suspect exited a third floor window, onto the roof of the residence, and then jumped onto the roof of a neighbouring home. The attempted flight ended when he jumped onto the rear patio, where a Vancouver Police dog and its handler were waiting. A 33-year-old man from Vancouver was taken into custody without further incident. Also detained during the search was the woman from Coquitlam along with a 28-year-old woman from Vancouver, a 28-year-old man from Burnaby, a 21-year-old man from Vancouver and a 28-year-old woman from North Vancouver. That led to a search at another Vancouver ad-

dress, where a 34-year-old Vancouver woman was arrested. None of the ar rested people were named Thursday during a joint RCMP-VPD press conference in Surrey because none have been charged yet. Police displayed some of the seized computers, stolen ID, stolen mail, magnetic card reader/writers, personal profile documents, passports, and other items that will be used as evidence. “This complex, multi-jurisdictional investigation was undertaken by both the Surrey RCMP and the Vancouver Police Department using a team approach to a common problem,” said Inspector Wade Lymburner of the Surrey RCMP. “This team was able to effectively stop a group who were potentially affecting thousands of victims and costing the payment card financial system a large amount of money.” dferguson@surreyleader.com

What’s in a name? Change for Tri-City women’s group By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Carol Metz Murray is executive director of Tri-City Transitions, which until recently was known as Tri-City Women’s Resource Centre. kids whose emotional needs have been affected by witnessing abuse and a new program for men was established to teach them how to recognize dysfunctional relationships, learn strategies for managing anger, deal with discipline appropriately and understand the effects family of origin on relationship patterns. The Secrets to Fatherhood program now runs group programs for men four times a year. It’s voluntary, attended by men of all ages — even grandfathers — and has a waiting list, Metz Murray said. “I really think that

men are becoming more aware and recognizing that some of the old patterns don’t work any more. “So men, I think, recognize if they want to have a more meaningful relationships they too have to look at their behaviour patter ns and how they can have a more positive impact and relationships with their children, spouse or girlfriend.” The name change also recognizes the society’s efforts to get at the root of abuse and break the cycles that seem to reappear often generation after generation. Metz Murray stressed there are many avenues to

connecting with people — from providing emotional support after the fact, educating people to reco gniz e abuse or teaching them life skills so they are better prepared to deal with anger and frustration — and all of them aim to achieve the same goal, ending domestic abuse. While the name change may be difficult for some to accept given the organization’s history, Metz Murray said, “If we really want to make a difference in men and women’s lives we have to work with men, because violence and abuse is a community issue.” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Canadian society has changed mostly for the good since the TriCity Women’s Resource Centre formed to promote the rights of women 35 years ago. Men are now taking on increased responsibility for parenting and relationships, and are seeking help when faced with family violence. All this change has prompted the local organization with feminist roots to change its name to Tri-City Transitions, with the slogan “Breaking the Cycles of Abuse.” “There was a recognition that our name didn’t really capture what we were doing,” explained Carol Metz Murray, executive director of the resource centre, which runs family violence-prevention programs out of a house and offices in downtown PoCo. “ Wi t h t h e n a m e change, we also really wanted go deeper into the community,” she said, adding that TriCity Transitions is also working to raise its profile in the immigrant community and has developed anti-violence programs for local Grade 8 students. A new website (www. tricitytransitions.com) has been established and a new logo to go along with the new name. But helping women flee violence and abuse remains a core service for the organization which runs a transition house and provides victim assistance, parenting, life-skills and counselling programs for women and children. T h e o r g a n i z at i o n can no longer ignore the needs of men who are increasingly taking ownership of their role in family dynamics and are seeking support for dealing with their issues, she said. Sometimes they are even victims of abuse, said Metz Murray, who said the idea of reaching out to men started more than three years ago when a man with custody of his child showed up at the centre seeking help. “He was incredibly distressed because he could find no services for himself, and to support himself,” she said. At the time, there was no services available at the resource centre, either, but a staff member wanted to support father and child. The youngster was found a spot in a program for

Bike guy is back and ready to ride PoCo resident did plenty of soul-searching during cross-continent ride By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Just because he has spent the last four months and 15,777 km on his bike doesn’t mean Evan Moore has had enough of two-wheeled travel. Just days after returning from a cycling tour across Canada and through the U.S., Moore was planning a day of mountain biking with friends. “It should be terrifying because I’m so used to having a bike weigh as much as I do, so to have something on the mountain that’s that lightweight is going to be thrilling,” he said. On a sunny morning in June, Moore, 18, waved goodbye to family and friends who’d gathered at Port Moody’s Rocky Point Park to see him off on his big adventure. The Port Coquitlam teen had planned to spend the next year cycling, seeing the sights and, hopefully, discovering his future career path. But a little more than a month into the trip, Moore was already in New Brunswick. He’d hooked up with a father-son duo from Quebec on the first day of his journey and the threesome set a demanding pace that averaged 130 km a day. “After we parted ways, it was a little more lonely because I had 24 hours a day to my own mind, so that was a different experience,” Moore recalled. “But if I were to go back and re-do it, I would do it exactly the same because I think everything happens for a reason. It gave me time to ask myself questions about what I wanted to do when I came back.” Although he had another three months of solo thinking time, Moore said he’s still not entirely sure what

HERE

the future holds. He’s still considering joining the Canadian Armed Forces in some capacity but Moore says he’s still drawn to the bike industry. Looking back on the trip, Moore said a high point was being taken in by a Connecticut family that offered to put him up for a night. Moore joined family members at a friend’s sprawling seaside mansion and was asked to stay for a second night for a family barbecue. “I took five days off riding the entire trip and that was one of them, and it was definitely one of the most memorable,” Moore said. And despite numerous flat tires and other mechanical failures, Moore said the low point was the gruelling terrain — and unending stretches of vast, open landscape — through Arizona and New Mexico. Some of the strangest stories came from the people he met along the way, like the Forrest Gump-like character who said he had spent the last 21 years walking throughout the U.S. and the driver who, when he offered to give Moore and his broken bike a lift to the next town, said, “Just let me move the guns out of the back seat.” Moore had hoped to raise $23,000 for the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation but found he was too exhausted at the end of each day to drum up donations, ending up with just $3,500. Still, Moore said, every little bit helps. With the epic — but successful — ride behind him Moore said he’s considering a summit of Mt. McKinley. “I’m a firm believer in fate about this trip,” he said. “There were huge chances for everything to go wrong but even when things went bad, they didn’t go completely bad. I have faith that will happen in the future as well.” • For more on Moore’s journey, visit exit40b.blogspot.com. spayne@tricitynews.com

Famous author and artist choice of Fox family By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Douglas Coupland, one of Vancouver’s most prominent authors and visual artists, was picked this month to design a new memorial at BC Place for Port Coquitlam’s most famous son: Terry Fox. Coupland was chosen by the Fox family and the BC Pavilion Corporation, the operators of BC Place, to replace the current structure in the Terry Fox Plaza that has been the source of controversy since it was erected 27 years ago. That often-loathed memorial, described as “a post-modern interpretation of the triumphal arches of Rome,” located at 855 Beatty St. in Vancouver, will be demolished as part of the $563-million redevelopment of BC Place.

Coupland designed the widely popular digital orca at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Coupland did not return a request for comment about the commission but in a statement issued by PavCo,

he wrote: “Terry was a man but he was also the only icon Canada created in the 20th century. I’m deeply honoured by the Fox family to be asked to continue his memory.” jwarren@tricitynews.com

Q WHAT WE THINK:

T

ransLink has a lengthy to-do list when it comes to upgrading roads and transit and is asking the public how to pay for it. Among the options are hikes in property taxes or a vehicle levy, and people are likely to complain loud and long about paying out of their pockets for something they take for granted. Buses are old school, SkyTrain is newer but changes neighbourhoods. What’s new to get the public excited? One idea recently hoisted up the flagpole may be worth considering: a gondola to SFU. Officials say the 2.6 km aerial tram could use technology similar to the Peak 2 Peak gondola connecting Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and would ferry 3,000 people up the mountain in an hour — the equivalent of 15 buses. Lots of Tri-City students attend SFU, making this idea more than a trial balloon. Perhaps it might even encourage people to open their pocketbooks.

The good, the bad and the bear spray AS I SEE IT Colin Fehr

T

here have always been things in our lives that aren’t as they seem. Blessings in disguise. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. Sometimes sheep in wolves’ clothing. But this begs the question, what is it that defines something as good or bad? Is there a standard by which to measure? Does it matter how you feel in the end, how you’ve affected the people around you? Or is it just the labels we give things? Allow me an example: Most people consider a cloud of bearspray to be a bad thing. Let me back up for moment: My thoughts on this topic began in the summer — remember summer? — in the beautiful but sometimes stormy city of Cold Lake, Alberta, where I was attending a cadet wilderness survival course.

On the second day of our training, my entire flight (group of cadets) was hit with a cloud of bearspray blown downwind. It didn’t taste great, everyone had coughing fits and a couple of people suffered nosebleeds. Bad stuff, right? For a few moments, maybe. But then, for almost no reason, we caught ourselves united in our suffering, singing in unison to Journey, The Beatles, Bon Jovi, even Katy Perry. We took the cloud of pepper spray and turned it into something positive for the group — a recovery rather than an injury. Looking back at my time in training, I can only recall a few memories I’m more fond of than being bearsprayed. But what does that say about the way our experiences appear to us? Surely no system would allow an experience such as mine to be regarded as good. Entire clouds of what seems to be bad come along, leaving a bad taste in our mouths, leaving us breathless, hurting us.

“Looking back at my time in training, I can only recall a few memories I’m more fond of than being bearsprayed.” Colin Fehr I speak of teens because that is the world I live in... Why do we choose this? It seems that every time we get knocked down, we allow ourselves to stay on the ground, coughing, rather than to stand up with our heads high. I’ve seen tears shed over “that girl who doesn’t notice me.” I’ve seen arguments about whether time is a blessing or a curse. I’ve seen hearts shatter when someone walks away, back turned on a broken friendship. But none of these things are endings. Nor

are they beginnings. Life is full of events, moments on a timeline. These moments hold no positive or negative connotations on their own until we assign them. Every fall is a chance to rise. Every shadow is framed by light. And through that logic, we can choose to have the events in our lives be good. Heartache is a chance to find love again. Unemployment is an opportunity to rediscover your calling. Heck, bearspray may prove a perfect kickoff to a day of song. Another example from my cadet camp: There had been 13 thunderstorms in 14 days but on the 15th day, the sun shone high and bright, and that was all right with me. Without the storms, I thought, what would calm, warmth and sun really mean to us? Colin Fehr is a high school student from Port Moody who occasionally writes opinion pieces for The Tri-City News.

FACE TO FACE: Who makes better politicians â&#x20AC;&#x201D; men or women?

Qualities of men & women needed

In Canada, that raises questions TERRY Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;NEILL

F

ranceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance minister, Christine Lagarde, made worldwide headlines earlier this month when she asserted that menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ego, libido and testosterone combine to make them more likely than women to humiliate their political opponents and to take things personally, thus making them worse politicians than women. Funny thing, though: In making such a divisive, discriminatory and judgmental allegation, Ms. Lagarde, in effect, attempted to humiliate male politicians and thus has become guilty of the same offence she accuses men of committing. Perhaps, then, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suffering from a bit of Stockholm Syndrome. Seriously, though, I would have thought that, in Ms. Lagardeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universe of perfectly polite politicians, there would be no harsh opinions and controversial declarations, only consensus-building and conciliation. But in tarring men in such a brutal way, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting exactly like the caricature male of her creation. And if it walks like a sexist pig and oinks like a sexist pig, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surely a sexist pig. Nevertheless, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little doubt that, generally speaking, men do exhibit a more forceful, get-to-thepoint, winner-takes-all style in a board room, around a bargaining

table or in a legislative chamber than women. On the other hand, again generally speaking, females are noted for their consensus building, team play and non-confrontational approach. Does one style alone create â&#x20AC;&#x153;betterâ&#x20AC;? politicians than the other? No. Too much male-type bull-headed, bulldozer-style bullying can certainly produce bad government but so can the spin-your-wheels, consensus-building and stakeholderinputting that are the hallmarks of the female way of doing things. On the other hand, there are times when each of these styles is exactly right for the situation. Being a post-modern male who is fully in touch with both his masculine and feminine sides, I feel I am an expert in matters such as these and can, therefore, safely assert that the ideal politician of the 21st century is a leader who listens, a grassroots ideologue, a take-charge person who is also a team player, a passionate intellectual and a tender-hearted brute. In other words, he or she must be all things to all people â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which, of course, is pretty well impossible. Somehow, though, the sun will rise again tomorrow and the bell will ring once more on a new round in the eternal battle of the sexes.

R

ecently, Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance minister, Christine Lagarde, claimed that women make better politicians because we â&#x20AC;&#x153;inject less libido and less testosterone into the equation.â&#x20AC;? My colleague opposite says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poppycock!â&#x20AC;? Ms Lagarde, who has considerable credentials and was dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iron ladyâ&#x20AC;? by The Economist, is also running to be Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next prime minister. To find more support for Lagardeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theory in addition to my own, I Googled the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;women are best politicians.â&#x20AC;? To my horror, the second link that came up was â&#x20AC;&#x153;The top 10 sexiest female politicians in the world.â&#x20AC;? The top rated â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexiestâ&#x20AC;? female politician in the world is barely dressed in the photos. Mara Carfagna is a former showgirl and topless model who is an Italian politician and serves on Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinet as minister for equal opportunity. Mama mia! Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the recently released World Economic Forum Gender Gap report, which measures the size of the gap between menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic participation and opportunity; health and survival; educational attainment; and political empowerment. Canada has now slipped behind the United

States in overall ranking. While Canada ranks 20th overall, we rank 36th in the area of political empowerment behind countries such as Angola, Bangladesh and Uganda. What I was shocked â&#x20AC;&#x201D; really shocked â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to learn is that Canada ranked 47th in the area of health and survival. This category attempts to provide an overview of the differences between womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. The two variables used is the sex birth ratio and the gap between womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy life expectancy, calculated by the World Health Organization. Perhaps I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be hard on Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranking; after all, only 81 years have passed (on Oct. 19) since women in Canada were legally recognized as persons and it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet been a hundred years since women got the vote in Canada. Women in Quebec have only been allowed to vote since 1940. But back to Lagardeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement about women making better politicians: I just wish there were more of them in Canada. Furthermore, in a country where gender equality is enshrined in our constitution, and has been for more than 25 years, why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t women further ahead? Maybe it is all that libido and testosterone getting in the way.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS Green waste isn’t difficult The Editor, To my Coquitlam neighbours, I have been watching around the neighbourhood and on my drive in to work for the last couple of garbage days and don’t see very many people with green waste cans in front of their homes. I am wondering why this is and I somehow suspect it isn’t because you all have composters in your backyards. I was jealous when Port Moody rolled its green can program out before Coquitlam did but now I wonder how well it has caught on in that municipality. Our family has set up an excellent system for collecting our green waste. I bought a stainless steel pot for $8.99 at Value Village (because green waste keeps better in a stainless container) and we put our green waste in there; every day, it gets emptied into a chunk of newspaper, which gets tied with a piece of string and put out into the garage in the designated green can, which has a couple of pieces of newspaper lining the bottom of it. We are two weeks in and there has been no mess or any additional stink to what our regular garbage would have been. Our only other garbage has been one small bag each week. I have spoken to a few people and I get the impression they think it is a hassle to be a part of this program and that their time is too valuable or perhaps they aren’t interested or motivated to reorganize themselves for whatever reason. I have heard comments like, “It looks so hard to make those newspaper cones” and “There just isn’t room in my garage for more garbage” and “The bears will get it” and “That will be so stinky” and “I don’t have any string.” This inclined me to share my thoughts on the subject. I feel overwhelmed when I listen to all the media coverage on greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. I think that this is something we can all easily take part in that will reduce our greenhouse gas

TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO

Garbage is an attractant for bears in the Tri-Cities but one letter writer wonders about the lack of berries. emissions because that is what your garbage turns into. Eventually, I hope, it will be a mandatory program but I wonder what your children will think years from now when they find out how you resisted this tiny change that maybe would assist your

grandchildren’s survival on this planet. Theresa Hendriks, Coquitlam

BERRIES & BEARS The Editor, I have been struck by the fact that none of the recent articles on bears

in Coquitlam in the local newspapers have discussed the effects of development on bear populations. It seems to me that we are seeing more bears than we ever have in 36 years residency on Burke Mountain, and I wonder why the disappearance of bear fodder by the scraping off of blackberry and huckleberry bushes due to land clearing is not mentioned as a possible factor in the increase in bear/ people encounters up here. I simply cannot believe that the absence of their normal berries is not a factor in bears searching for food in more yards rather than the city of Coquitlam always blaming careless handling of garbage/fruit tree/bird feeders as the cause. Maggie Fankboner, Coquitlam

PoCo proposal makes sense The Editor, Re. “‘We want Evergreen,’ PoCo tells Metro Van” (The Tri-City News, Oct. 20). Port Coquitlam’s council’s proposal to extend the Evergreen Line to the downtown core of PoCo is the only one to make any sense for TransLink if growth and expansion to Pitt Meadows, Mission and eventually across the river to Langley are to take place in the future. It makes no sense to end the Evergreen Line next to the Evergreen Cultural Centre, well north of the Coquitlam Centre, unless it’s intended to be final. It leaves no future options open for expansion without the hassle of needlessly difficult transfer situations. It makes far better sense to end the line at Port Coquitlam for now until the line can be extended over the Pitt River. If TransLink is serious about serving

the greatest number of possible transit users and plan for its future success, the Evergreen Line needs to be accessible to the highest population densities, which means focusing the stations where most people are for their convenience. Towns like PoCo could contribute lots for park and ride and perhaps share upkeep for station facilities in order to alleviate the costs of building the stations. Locating rapid transit stations in their town cores is a future economic booster, bringing shoppers and tourists to local businesses who would otherwise not have bothered because of traffic and parking difficulties. No wonder Poco Mayor Greg Moore and city councillors have the vision to recognize what a plus this would be for their city. I fully support them in this endeavour. M. Schooff, Port Coquitlam

Not urgent: Jarvis “With the narrow corridor in Port Moody, if the Murray-Clarke Connector remains undelivered when construction for the Evergreen Line starts, you can see the disruption we’ll have. This is not just a Port Moody problem, it’s a northeast sector problem.” Trasolini maintains the connector is not a new TransLink expansion project but the completion of an existing project — the Barnet Highway — that was promised by the province more than 20 years ago. But TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis sees it differently, noting earlier this month that the original justification for the connector was to protect Moody Centre businesses when the Evergreen Line was planned as an at-grade LRT system down St. Johns Street. With the switch to an elevated SkyTrain system, the Murray-Clarke Connector is no longer an urgent priority, Jarvis said. Trasolini said it’s “absurd” that a one-lane overpass that causes rushhour back-ups stretching for several kilometres is part of the inter-munici-

pal corridor, echoing an earlier council discussion that suggested PoMo may withdraw the Murray-Clarke from TransLink’s major road network — and block access to it for commuters coming from outside Port Moody. He also wants to know whether the new, provincially appointed TransLink board, whose meetings are closed to the public, rescinded approval and funding for Murray-Clarke. Trasolini and city manager Gaetan Royer were to meet with TransLink executives today (Friday) to discuss the issue. Royer said it’s unclear what effect Port Moody’s withdrawal of support for Evergreen would have on the project or who will cover the increased cost of the Murray-Clarke Connector. “We have a tougher job getting support for the Murray-Clarke Connector because now it’s going to cost more, it’s going to have to be a longer bridge,” Royer said. “We want the province, which is the lead of the Evergreen Line, to pay for the longer bridge... because it would be a smaller project were it not for the Evergreen Line.” spayne@tricitynews.com — with files from Jeff Nagel

Underpass delays next week Drivers travelling through the Shaughnessy Street underpass next week may experience delays. Annual pressure washing of the underpass will be taking place, forcing single-lane alternating traffic on Monday and Tuesday night (Oct. 26 and 27) between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. The sidewalk will also remain closed while the cleaning is taking place but will be opened periodically when pedestrians need to travel

through the area. Waits for pedestrians will be limited to 10 minutes. The city suggests alternate routes such as the Coast Meridian Overpass, Kingsway Avenue to Westwood Street, Pitt River Road to the Lougheed Highway or the Mary Hill Bypass to the Lougheed Highway.

Salmon event provides a chance to educate public People can pitch in to help the fish, say Hoy streamkeepers By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

When it comes to protecting urban creeks, educating the public is key. So when members of the Hoy/Scott Watershed Society host the Salmon Comes Home event this weekend, the main focus will be on the do’s and don’ts of stream stewardship, said society member Keith Kozak. “There is a lot the general public can do,” he said. “By educating them about the sensitivity of the aquatic environment helps protect [the creek] from contamination and toxins that might impact the local streams.” Ko zak said many chum have already begun to return to the stream this year, a positive sign in the early phase of the salmon run. But while the focus is on the environment, those who participate at the 12th annual event Sunday can expect to have a good time as well, he added. Participants will get a chance to observe the spawning salmon and participate in nature walks hosted by members of the Burke Mountain Naturalists. Salmon demonstrations will also be conducted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and children’s entertainer Chris Hamilton will be perfor ming. There will also be a concession stand and face painting. By informing the public of the importance of local creeks, society member Tim Tyler hopes the watershed can rejuvenate to what it once was. “At one time, it had a run of pinks, it had cutthroats, it had chum, of course,” said Tyler. “Over time, it has degenerated like most urban streams. We never know if the salmon are going to come back.” The event will be held Sunday, Oct. 24 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the Hoy Creek Fish Hatchery (follow the path between 2975 and 2980 Princess Crescent on Hoy Creek across from the City Centre Aquatic Complex). The event is free. For more information go to www. coquitlam.ca. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Fishers lost a friend with death of Otway Bill Otway, a longtime resident of Port Coquitlam who devoted his life to protecting fish and game and their habitat, passed away last Sunday; he was 75. Born in Fort William, Ont., he moved to B.C. as a teenager. Growing up in PoCo, he spent many years fishing on the Coquitlam River and was instrumental in its protection. A member of the PoCo and District Hunting and Fishing Club for more than 54 years, he served the club in just about every capacity imaginable, from secretary to president, and was recognized by that group with an honorary life membership. He also received life memberships from the North Peace Rod and Gun Club and the North Shore Fish and Game Club. Otway held the position of executive director of the BC Wildlife Federation (of which he was a member for more than 54 years) for nine years and that of recreational fisheries advisor/ombudsman for Fisheries and Oceans Canada for 15 years. He was appointed to the Northern Panel of the Pacific Salmon Commission in 1995 and

A documentary short film chronicling Riverview Hospital’s early asylum days is premiering at Douglas College Monday evening. The 12-minute movie, called Bedlam, follows Kay Clayton, who first worked at what was then known as Essondale when she was just 16 as a summer helper on the women’s ward in 1945. “She told us the story of her first day of work... when she was assaulted by a patient,” said producer Heidi Currie, a criminology instructor at Douglas. “She was on an overcrowded ward of women who were n o t m e d i c at e d a n d who were profoundly ill. How fascinating is that?” B e d l a m rec reates Clayton’s first experiences at Essondale; she returned to work there in 1973 until her retirement in 1988. The film was made with funding from Douglas College and the National Film Board. It follows on the heels of Asylum, the first Riverview film Currie made with filmmaker Lisa G., which focused on a psychiatric nurse who worked at the hospital in 1949. “One thing she remembered clearly, that stayed with her over the years, were the people in the asylum who were not mentally ill, who were there purely for asylum,” Currie said. Fascinated by the stories of nursing care at Riverview, Currie soon embarked on the Bedlam project. She’s now working on the third part of the series, which will explore stories about LSD trials and treatments like “Lobotomy Day.” But Currie emphasizes that the films do not feed into popular misconceptions about Riverview. “We discovered that 99.9% of the people who worked there were good people who provided the best possible care at the time, given what was acceptable and what they knew in an era of no psychiatric medication,” Currie said. “Our stories are not about horror and abuse, and we won’t go down that road.” Currie, whose background is in mental health law, has long b e e n i n t e re s t e d i n asylum history and the concept of institutional control. The opportunity to tell those stories through some

Developers must follow checklist Stories by Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Landowners wanting to develop on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam now have a checklist to keep them on track. The assessment criteria guide city council approved Monday highlights a number of topics developers need to consider before submitting their plans to build in one of the most challenging regions in Metro

Vancouver. The topics include: • topography (steep slopes and ravines); • environment (watercourses, setbacks, wetlands, rare or protected animals); • location (proximity to surrounding existing or planned commercial sites, schools and parks); • infrastructure (provision of utilities); • and land use compatibility and density (a mix of housing styles, charac-

ter of neighbourhood). The checklist also serves as a reminder of council’s restriction on the number of watercourse crossings and direct driveway accesses to arterial roads. The rules come as city hall nears the end of the Partington Creek Village Neighbourhood Plan, which has been on hold for an area stormwater management study; Partington is where higher density is planned

on the east side of the mountain. And it comes as city hall staff notice a trend in applications that deviate from the city-wide official community plan (OCP) and the Northeast Coquitlam Area Plan (NECAP). NECAP calls for about 7,640 homes on Burke over the next 15 to 20 years — a population that would match Port Moody’s of 24,000. But according to a recent staff report, 200

more homes — or 7% — have been constructed since building on Burke started four years ago in the three neighbourhoods now under construction: Upper andLower Hyde Creek and Smiling Creek. Those three zones were expected to accommodate 2,798 homes but, at this rate, build-out will be 2,994 dwelling units, the report states, putting pressure on utility services, roads and parks.

Review looks to streamline operations at Coq. city hall An ongoing review of how departments are run at Coquitlam city hall has resulted in a number of recommended changes to the building permit division. Consultant John Irving studied the division between March and June of this year and offered 21 suggestions on management, policy development, resource allocation and process updating in the section, which deals with inspections. Among his points were the creation of a new organizational structure and the addition of a code engineer to handle technical code

equivalency requests. City council will consider the new position during next month’s budget deliberations. In his report to council, released on Monday, Jim McIntyre, Coquitlam’s general manager of planning, pointed out the division’s workload, given the upswing in development activity this year. Temporary staff have been hired “to ensure acceptable levels of turn-around are maintained, especially in the areas of plans examination and building/ plumbing inspections,” he wrote, adding the city may have to employ more permanent staff

to keep up with demand as a result of the anticipated growth in Town Centre and on Burke Mountain. Last year, council approved a cyclical review of city departments with the aim to streamline operations, improve delivery and customer

service, and find cost savings. To date, reviews have been carried out in communications, lands management, environmental services, engineering, parks and permits. A review of vehicle fleet management is expected to be completed

by the end of this year, and the police and fire departments will be done at a later date. Deputy city manager John DuMont told The Tri-City Newss yesterday the review will continue in other department sections. jwarren@tricitynews.com

was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” Who am I? I am a child of God, created by Him for a uniquely prepared purpose. If I were to try and use my new router as a hammer, it would cause damage to both the router and the wood. I have to know what the router is, why it has been manufactured and how to use it. Is my own life any less important, less purposeful or less complex than a router is? Of course not. We each have a purpose, we are significant and we need to be understood.

y daughter and son-in-law bought a wonderful gift for my birthday. Like most guys, I like tools — maybe it’s the whine of the engine or the feelings of power that accompany an electric saw or even a leaf blower, but tools, next to dogs, have got to be a man’s best friend. This year they gave me an electric router. After three or four grandchildren had helped me rip open the package, I held my new friend gently in my hands and stroked it tenderly. I could hardly wait until the singing of “Happy Birthday” stopped, the candles were snuffed and the cake was eaten so I could run outside and try my new toy. We were at my daughter Kelly’s home, so I asked her husband Tom if he had any wood in the basement. We pulled out a piece of oak plywood and I plugged the router in. Before beginning the trimming process, I did glance quickly at the thick instruction manual. After scanning some of the safety guidelines and learning how to insert an appropriate bit, I was ready to go. (I would read the rest of the booklet later.) I’m still not ready to build my own kitchen cabinets or a coffee table but at least I know how to turn my router on and hack the corners

off on an old piece of plywood. Reflecting on the way I’ve learned to use my new router, I see a parallel of how many Canadians view their lives. We’ve been given, on our birth day, a most awesome gift — about 25,000 days to fulfill a specified mission. Like me and my router, we have at least three choices: We can stay neatly in our containers and never even consider our owner’s intended design and purpose; we can get out of the box, turn on the power and start using our skills and talents, aware there is an instruction book but only knowing enough so that we don’t hurt ourselves; or we can carefully read the owner’s manual, practise doing what our creator and designer made us to do according to his instructions, and be all that we were intended to be. Number three is the best for our lives — as well as for using our power tools. Before we can discover the purpose of our life and move toward fulfillment, we would be wise to answer some basic life questions — you’ll find all the answers in the textbook that our creator gave us, the Bible. Question number one has to do with identify. It is, “Who am I?” and “Where did I come from?” The answer is given throughout the textbook but King David described our creation poetically, “You made all the delicate inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life

Salmon come home: the yearly miracle After death, the decomposing bodies of both males and females provide nutrients to the stream that augment the food chain and ultimately help ensure an ample supply of aquatic insects upon which their young will feed next spring. For all of their magnificent migrations across the Pacific, these salmon are extremely vulnerable to human impacts, especially when in fresh water streams. Freshly laid eggs are fragile and can be easily damaged by people or dogs walking in streams. Rainfall from roads, collected by the stormwater system, can carry oil and other pollutants into local streams; similarly, pesticides applied to yards and harmful soap suds from washing cars all have the potential to enter creeks through storm drains. The yellow fish painted on these storm drains is intended to remind people that all the water will eventually end up in a local creek, where the lives of young salmon depend on good water quality.

n eastern Canada, it’s a sure sign of fall when the leaves of maple trees turn a brilliant red. Here on the west coast, the return of mature salmon to their birthplace to spawn in fresh water is an equally spectacular harbinger of autumn. Exactly how these salmon find their way back to their natal stream is still not entirely understood. In comparison to other species of fish, Pacific salmon are somewhat unusual regarding their behaviour of spawning in the fall. Also unlike some other fish, they have relatively short lives, with a pre-determined and almost poetic timing of their death shortly after egg-laying. Of the several species of Pacific salmon that return to spawn in the rivers and streams on B.C.’s coast, coho and chum salmon are especially well adapted to take advantage of aquatic habitat in small urban streams. When the fall rains begin, coho are typically the first to swim upstream, followed in a few weeks by the larger chum. Mature chum can weigh up to 5 kg, which makes them look super-sized for the small creeks in which they spawn. Next spring, after their eggs hatch, the young chum fry that emerge from the gravel will immediately swim downstream towards the ocean. Because chum require fresh water only during fall, winter and spring, they have evolved to take full advantage of small ephemeral streams that dry up in summer. In contrast, coho spend more time in fresh water as juveniles. Only after a complete year in fresh water will they acquire the urge to swim downstream in search of salt water. Thus, coho require streams with water in them year-round. During the hot summer months, small

A Fisheries and Oceans Canada biologist describes the features of a male chum. To learn more about salmon, attend the Hoy Creek Hatchery’s Salmon Come Home event this weekend. pools of water in urban streams shaded by overhanging vegetation provide critical habitat for young coho fry as they grow and feed on aquatic insects. Once in the marine environment, coho typically spend one and a half years following ocean currents before returning to their natal stream to spawn; chum can take up to four years to mature. Exactly how these fish, after swimming as far north as the Bering Sea and halfway to Japan, find their way home again seems like nothing less than a miracle. Biologists believe the fish rely on a combination of ocean currents, their own internal compass and,

finally, the unique chemical flavour of their natal stream to find their way home again. Upon return to the place of their birth, females seek out a patch of appropriately-sized gravel in which to lay their eggs. They create a redd — a nest — by scooping out a shallow hole with their bodies into which they release their eggs. Their actions attract males, which will swim in behind them and release milt (i.e., sperm) to fertilize the eggs. Once eggs have been deposited and fertilized, the final act of the female will be to stay beside its redd to protect it and await certain death, which will follow within a few days.

Two local events provide a chance for people to view salmon spawning in local streams: • At Hoy Creek in Coquitlam this Sunday, Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the annual Salmon Come Home event will feature talks about the life history of salmon and displays from several environmental groups. Volunteers from the Hoy Creek Hatchery and staff from Fisheries and Oceans Canada will be on hand and in the creek to demonstrate what salmon require to successfully spawn and answer questions from the public. • On Sunday, Nov. 14, also from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Hyde Creek Salmon Festival at the Hyde Creek recreation centre and Hyde Creek Hatchery will provide similar opportunities in Port Coquitlam. Elaine Golds is a Port Moody environmentalist who is vice-president of Burke Mountain Naturalists, chair of Colony Farm Park Ass’n. and president of PoMo Ecological Society.

Thanks to a helmet, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mr. December By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Kerry Neratini grew up in a firefighter family, married into one and now, as Mr. December, he has been immortalized in the family of calendar beefcakes. The 29-year-old Port Moody resident, a second-generation Vancouver firefighter for almost four years now, had always wanted to be part of the infamous calendar but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure he was ready to strip down for the racy photographs. At the June selection night at Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roxy nightclub, however, Neratini was encouraged to get on stage to strut his stuff. After making it through the first round in his dress uniform, his fellow contestants suggested donning their turnout gear â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sans shirts, of course â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but Neratini didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have his. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I borrowed a Delta

firefighterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helmet and strapped it to my midsection with nothing else on,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ladies really liked it, so subsequently Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Mr. December.â&#x20AC;? He had little time to prepare, with photos taken just weeks after the selection night, but Neratini said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too shy about all the attention since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been training for several months with an eye to making it into the calendar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I had the physique to get into it but I figured you only live once, so you might as well go for it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Neratini added that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;humbled and honouredâ&#x20AC;? to be part of the 2011 Hall of Flame Charity Calendar, the 24th annual, which has raised more than $1 million for the Vancouver General Hospital burn unit and other charities. Also appearing in the calendar are 34-year-

old Jason Phillips, a Coquitlam resident who is also a Vancouver firefighter and appears on the calendar cover, and a Coquitlam firefighter appearing as Mr. August. The three Tri-City residents will appear with their calendar counterparts in the West Coast Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Show fashion shows this weekend to help promote the calendar, which is available at London Drugs.

Hoping to make a hot business out of cold research By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Dr. James Garry is slowly building a new business, creating a spotless, orderly corner lab out of a haphazard hobby warehouse on Port Moodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spring Street. Nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Docâ&#x20AC;? by the retired and nearly retired men who drop by the shop to tinker away at planter boxes and other projects, Garry passes through the motley collection of tools and discarded materials to his shop-within-ashop, pausing at his door to slip a pair of sterile hospital booties

over his shoes. Inside the white lab, with its tightly sealed plastic â&#x20AC;&#x153;windowsâ&#x20AC;? and painted concrete floor, Garry sits at his desk to test some of the code heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written earlier that day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just part of the complicated system heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working on for the past two years. Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finished, the cryogenic test rig will be used to test â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of all things â&#x20AC;&#x201D; foam. Building a business based on examining foam may sound like a lark, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot riding on Garryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment of the kind of insulating material

petrochemical manufacturers need when shipping natural gas to places like Korea, Japan and China. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kinda nerdy, and I fully appreciate just how bizarre and strange this all is,â&#x20AC;? Garry admitted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not everyday stuff, particularly when you make the link that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind-of like what I used to do 10 years ago, where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d send stuff off to Mars and satellites of Saturn.â&#x20AC;? So what does testing foam have to do with exploring outer space? see FROM SPACE TO SEA, SEA, page A35

From space to sea for local scientist IN QUOTES

The answer lies in finding ways to keep expensive, complex spacecraft functioning in extremely cold temperatures. One of the projects Garry worked on during his space days was a probe attached to a craft orbiting Saturn. The probe needed to land on Titan, a moon of Saturn, that was believed to be dotted with rather chilly oceans of liquid methane, or liquefied natural gas (LNG). “It turned out Titan didn’t have oceans of LNG, so the probe didn’t have to sink or swim in a -180 C ocean, but the payload I helped build on there is oddly enough going to be in the same kind of environment this rig’s going to be exploring, but in a totally different way. Strange correlation, isn’t it?” These days, Garry is turning his outer space experience into what he hopes will be entrepreneurial success as Red Core Consulting, doing thermal testing on different types of foam used to insulate tankers and other vehicles carrying liquid natural gas. His clients could include oil and gas companies, ship builders, pipeline builders or foam manufacturers, all of which need independent, third-party testing of the insulating foam that keeps the precious resource that is LNG cold enough so that it doesn’t evaporate en route to its final destination. (LNG is essentially natural gas that has been cooled, transforming it from a gas to a liquid that takes up a fraction of its former volume, allowing it be shipped efficiently.) The chemical makeup of different foams make them better or worse insulators, Garry explains — and every percentage point is critical. “If you’ve got something the size of an aircraft carrier and it’s full of LNG you want to have absolutely the best insulating foam around there, otherwise you’re going to be losing your precious payload,” he added. “By the time it gets to Japan from Indonesia where it’s being stored and loaded, you’ve lost 10% of it because it’s just boiled away. “It’s like going on a picnic, and you want to keep the ice for your beer as cold as possible.

“If you’ve got something the size of an aircraft carrier and it’s full of LNG you want to have absolutely the best insulating foam around .” DR. JAMES GARRY It’s like an ocean-going beer cooler, and my job is to make the beer cooler as good as possible.”

A BIG MARKET All kidding aside, Garry’s expertise is the culmination of 20 years of scientific study. He was born and raised in Yorkshire and reveals that he was captivated by space science even as a kid, building back yard rockets that usually didn’t make it out of the back yard. “I had a good strong astro-geek thread running through me, this is true,” Garry laughed. Many years later, and still just as enthus i a s t i c a l ly c u r i o u s about space, Garry’s bachelor’s degree in physics led to a master’s in space sciences, a PhD and then postdoctoral research in the Netherlands, where he worked on spacecraft designed to test whether the surface of Mars could have supported life. He’s had stints working for British Aerospace Systems, the Institute for Space and Astronautical Sciences in Japan and several UK universities. He cowrote a textbook called Planetary Landers and Entry Probes and his resume lists nearly two dozen publications in various scientific journals. Gar ry worked on technology similar to what he’s building at Red Core at a university in the UK about three years ago; he’s since improved the device and will continue tinkering with it before taking on his first clients later this year. A foam manufacturer in Taiwan has been checking out his website and Garry expects a few well placed ads in various trade journals will help spread the word among potential clients throughout Asia, Europe and South

America. “I know it’s a burgeoning market, it’s not going to go away and it’s growing every single year,” he said. “China’s going to need more LNG than they ever knew, Korea and Japan depend on the stuff and they have no natural reserves, so they have to get the gas in there somehow. You can’t put a pipeline in the ocean so it has to be trucked in by boat.” And when those boats are ready to set sail to far-off corners of the globe carrying tons of liquefied natural gas, Garry’s Port Moody lab will be ready to certify that the crucial insulating material keeping it cold is, indeed, some top-notch foam.

Nominees named for Spike awards Dozens of businesses have been nominated for Port Moody’s Spike Business Awards. Six categories were established for the return of the annual business contest and the public responded by naming their favourite firms. “The fact that several businesses were mentioned in more than one category demonstrates the vitality of our business sector.

Masqued ball Douglas College is hosting a gala celebrating of its 40th anniversary and the 25th anniversary of the Douglas College Foundation on Oct. 30. T he Masque Royale, a Renaissance-themed ball, is a fundraising extravaganza whose goal is to raise $100,000 for student aid. Karen Baker-MacGrotty, a member of the Douglas College Foundation, says the Masque Royale will bring together members of the community, alumni, students, faculty and staff to raise much-needed funds. “Proceeds will go toward helping a broad base of students with tuition fees and books,” Baker-MacGrotty said. “Costs are rising every year, so these funds will be targeted toward students in need to help them reach their life goals and make their dreams possible. “The students are our future, and every dollar puts them one step closer to achieving their aspirations.” The event includes a reception, dinner and dancing, along with musicians, circus performers, artists and singers. There will also be live and silent auctions; guests can buy tickets for a chance to win a watercolour of Venice painted during the gala, a trip to a fishing lodge and fine jewellery. Tickets cost $125 (includes a $25 tax receipt); tables for eight people are $900. Guests are encouraged to come in formal attire or costume, and bring their own mask or pick one up for a donation at the party. The Masque Royale takes place Saturday, Oct. 30 at Douglas College’s New Westminster Campus. To order tickets, call 604-777-6176 or email masqueroyale@douglascollege.ca.

Children’s hospital offers Coqu quit itlam Current nt Halloween safety advice Your City Column

Dressing up in costumes and enjoying treats and games are some of the best parts of Halloween for kids. But children can also be at a higher risk at this time for preventable injuries like cuts from pumpkin carving, burns from fireworks, choking, falls, and injuries involving cars and trick-or-treaters. “We treat many kids with injuries during Halloween every year,” Dr. Ran Goldman, emergency division head at BC Children’s Hospital, said in a press release. “We see injuries from fireworks but we also see injuries such as cuts from pumpkin carving or burns from candles placed inside pumpkins.” Dr. Goldman advises that parents should not allow small children to carve pumpkins. Instead, they can be creative and draw a face on the pumpkin, or dress it up with colourful fall leaves or other safe materials. Parents should also ensure that carved pumpkins are lit with a flashlight or a light stick rather than a candle. The best par t of Halloween for many kids is the candy they receive while trick-or-treating. Parents should check treat bags for any sweets that are open, have been tampered with or could pose a choking hazard. Choking occurs most frequently among children under two years of age but can happen at any age. R aw ve g e t a b l e s, apples, carrots and unpopped popcorn kernels are some of the foods that pose a high risk of choking for young children. Whole grapes, uncut hot dogs, popped balloons, and disc batteries are also of concern as they can completely block air passages, and, in the case of batteries, cause serious injury. “Children should not be given gel candies or nuts until they are at least three years old,” recommends Alyson McKendrick, co-ordinator of Safe Start, BC Children’s Hospital’s injury prevention program. “When eating, parents should have children sit down and eat at the table since eating while playing, running, jumping or talking can lead to a choking episode.” It is recommended that all parents and caregivers learn what to do in a choking emergency, including the choking rescue procedure (Heimlich manoeuvre) because the correct response can save a

Eye safety details You can learn about eye health — and pick up a pumpkin — tomorrow (Saturday) at Omni Eye and Vision Clinic in Port Moody. The event takes place at the shop at Suter Brook Village. Dr. Mathur will also be giving out free “Be seen safe” reflective stickers from the BC Association of Optometrists to ensure kids are visible to motorists and are safe this Halloween. There will also be other eye health-related information for parents on how they can protect their children’s vision and eye health. The clinic is located at 101 Morrissey Road, Unit 3.

child’s life. Information is available at www. bchealthguide.org. BC Children’s has additional safety tips to ensure everyone stays safe during Halloween: • A costume should not be longer than a child’s ankles to ensure they don’t trip or fall while walking up and down stairs. Select well-fitting footwear

and avoid high heels for young children. • Put reflective tape on the front and back of costumes to make children more visible to cars especially if their costume is made of a dark, non-reflective material. • Makeup is better than masks, which can block vision. Test the makeup on your child’s

wrist for 24 hours in advance to make sure there’s no allergic reaction. It’s best for a young child not to wear a mask or head piece that reduces their vision. • Inspect each Halloween treat bag carefully and remove any treats that look like they have been opened, tampered with, or pose a choking hazard. • Parents should monitor a child’s internet use because information on homemade explosives and fireworks is readily available on some sites. You can listen to a podcast interview with Dr. Goldman for more tips on how to have a safe Halloween. The podcast is available at http:// www.bcchildrens.ca/ bcch/cwmedia/HalloweenSafety20081020. mp3.

Winter is Just around the Corner Are You Ready? Coquitlam is known for its inconsistent snowfalls due to both its diverse geography and its regional location. Each year Roads and Fleet Operations review long-range forecasts to ensure City equipment, materials, sub-contractors, operational plans, and contingency plans are all serviced, stock piled and prepared for all weather. This winter’s moderate-to-strong La Nina predicts a busy winter with higher than normal snowfall and cold weather. Forecasts are saying a comparison year will be the winter of 2008-2009. Winter storms can create personal safety issues so practicing basic emergency preparedness will reduce possible impacts to your family and your property. Before extreme weather conditions arrive, plan ahead so you can comfortably and safely carry on during the winter season. We’re doing all we can do to get ready, so here’s some tips to help you get prepared: Y Make arrangements with family members who may be elderly or have limited mobility issues and who do not live with you – help them prepare for winter. Y Get your home winter ready – have your furnace inspected, shut off outside water to protect plumbing and built-in sprinkler systems, and clean the catch basin grates before snow arrives. Y Assess the trees on your property and trim dead branches to reduce the danger of them falling onto power lines or your house during a storm. Y Winterize your vehicle and, when it snows, drive only with good winter tires. Y Make alternate plans for getting to work in the snow.

Dealing with weeds key to a nice lawn IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter Autumn is the time to add nutrients to the soil to benefit your lawn

L

awns play a very important role in our winter landscape, but to look good at this time of year, they must have the right care. This is where so many folks become confused. So much misinformation is out there that it’s important to clarify a few things. First, the weeds. The new environmentally friendly way of minimizing weeds is to create conditions where weeds are challenged. Most weeds are annuals, and with proper mowing and weed pulling to prevent them from seeding, they can be easily eliminated. For resilient perennial weeds, simply spot treating them with an organic or low toxic weed control can do the job without leaving any residuals in the soil. Overseeding in the spring and fall with more aggressive grasses, like the new ‘Natural Knit’ blend of perennial rye grasses, will leave fewer places for weeds

to grow. This is a process that really works effectively and permanently. With the weeds kept to a minimum, it’s time to add fall nutrients. Using a slow-release high nitrogen type fertilizer, like 32-0-10 rather than a winterizing formulation, is the best approach for West Coast lawns. Always apply fertilizer to dry grass and then water it in thoroughly. This will really tone and colour up your lawn for winter. Over the fall and winter months, the nitrogen is stored in the cells of the grasses, helping them bounce back earlier in the spring. The Environmental Protection Agency in the United States endorses slow release nitrogen because the nitrates stay in the turf and do not leach into ground water. Much improved organic lawn fertilizers are also now available, and they are certainly the way of the future. When your lawn soil becomes soft with fall rains, the very best thing you can do is aerate it by using a machine that actually pulls plugs of soil out of the ground. This process will allow excess moisture to drain away and will also provide more air in and around the grass roots. If you apply about a ¼ inch layer of sand to keep those holes percolating all winter with improved drainage, moss should not be

nearly as much a problem next spring. This is an ongoing process to be done each spring and fall. Finally, before the heavy rains set in, make sure you apply Dolopril or organic eggshell lime - usually two to four bags for an average-sized lawn.

Heritage Woods Kodiaks’ Lillian Pham (centre) battles a pair of Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils for a bouncing ball during the Fraser Valley North AAA high school field hockey playoff final at Town Centre Park. The Kodiaks won 2-1 and advanced to next week’s FV finals in Cloverdale, along with the Blue Devils, Gleneagle Talons and Port Moody Blues.

Les Wingrove of the Coquitlam Adanacs won the Hugh Gifford Merit Award as mana g er of the year at the B.C. Lacrosse Association’s annual general meeting last weekend in Whistler. Wi n g r o ve s t u c k out a personally trying Western Lacrosse Association season as the A’s general manager, directing the team to the playoffs despite having lost his 42-year-old son, Trevor, to cancer last July. Seventeen merit awards were given out on the weekend, including the John Cavallin trophy –– representative of senior coach of the year –– to the Coquitlam Jr. ‘A’ Adanacs’ Curt Malawsky. Also, the Jr. A’s Christina Martinello and Teresa Agar won Dal Martin trainer of the year honours. BCLA President’s Award winners included Port Moody’s David Miller, Garrett Ungaro of Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam’s Linda Wiseman.

Gals’ coach goes ‘Big’ in college By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

T

he sports adage “hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard” is one that Port Coquitlam product Cyndi Lawson lives by. Now she’s preaching what she’s already practised –– repeatedly. Once a standout volleyball player with high school’s Terry Fox Ravens, Lawson earned a walk-on tryout with the Douglas Royals college women’s basketball team four years ago. Over her three-and-a-half year career, the six-foot-two post went on to become a top10 rebounder in the B.C. Colleges Athletic Association. Nicknamed ‘Bigs’ because of her tall, lanky stature, the 24-year-old Lawson is now aiming to pass along her knowledge, skill and diligent work ethic as high-level coach. She was one of 20 women across Canada –– and one of only two in B.C. –– to be selected recently for a fed-

erally funded female apprenticeship coaching grant valued at $4,000. “I take great pride in [being chosen],” Lawson told the Tri-City News earlier this week. “This grant enables and pays for me to complete my NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program) Level 1 and 2 and I’ll be an assistant coach at my alma mater, Douglas College. “This is a great opportunity for me to use the skills and values I have learned as a player and coach to transition into a larger role. It also enables more females to take their passion for coaching to the next level.” And that’s one area where women are being drastically over-looked in this province, Lawson feels, pointing out that of the current 18 BCCAA school basketball programs, only three head coaches are female –– on the women’s hoop teams at Prince George’s University of Northern B.C. and at Douglas, where Katie McLeod patrols the sidelines. Under McLeod’s tutelage, Lawson will learn

Frog & Nightgown Liquor Store

all the hands-on college coaching ropes, from recruiting to scouting to assisting at practices and games. “[McLeod’s] life is basketball, seven days a week,” Lawson said. “She’s really the only basketball coach I’ve had and she knows so much and works so hard.” Having played basketball in Grade 9, Lawson switched to volleyball and played it through her senior year at Fox. Only after did she decide basketball was truly the sport for her. “I find [basketball] so much more competitive... so much more serious,” she said. “It’s really intense and there are so many factors that can determine the outcome in a game.” Now a Burnaby resident, Lawson hopes this will be the beginning of seeing more women, including herself, wearing a coach’s whistle in the college ranks in the near future. “I’m really hoping this inspires some girls along the way to work toward a career coaching in college,” Lawson said.

Cats beat best, who axe coach By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Jason Bae of the Centennial Centaurs leaps for a header in a Fraser Valley North AAA senior boys soccer league game Tuesday versus Port Moodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heritage Woods Kodiaks at Parkland elementary school field. Kyle Kwong and Conor Ayre struck for a goal apiece as the Centaurs prevailed, 2-1.

Port Moody Black Panthers played precisely as their coach wanted Tuesday in Delta. The host Ice Hawks obviously didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and their bench boss paid the ultimate price for it. Darryl Erickson was fired as the Ice Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach right after Delta â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the best team in the 10-team Pacific Inter national Jr. B hockey league with a 9-3-2 record â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lost 4-3 to the Black Panthers, who improved to 5-5-4 with the victory. Dave McLellan, who coached the BCHL Burnaby (now Coquitlam) Express before being dismissed after last season, has taken over guiding the Ice Hawks. The Cats darted to a two-goal lead after Cameron Lawson and Joel Hamilton scored back-to-back goals two minutes apart midway through the first period. The Ice Hawks battled back to even the count 2-2 early in the second and the teams were knotted 3-3 when Catsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; six-foot-two forward M i c o D r a g u t i n ov i c bagged what proved the

winner at 8:04 of the middle frame. The Ron Johnsoncoached Cats continued their up-and-down play, upsetting Delta just two weeks after losing to the PIJHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst unit, the Squamish Wolf Pack, 5-4 in Squamish. When asked if Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game was the Black Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best showing of the season, their general manager Ron Luniw replied: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A complete game? Yes. We played hard from start to finish. I think that was our most complete game defensively, for sure.â&#x20AC;? L aw s o n a n d Jo e l Hamilton led the Cats with a goal and two assists each. Tyler Basham was PoMoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other marksman.

Julia Oros and Ainsley Given supplied assists for the Rebels, while Mikayla Bischoff nabbed the shutout. â&#x20AC;˘ Two second-half strikes by Heather Niven rallied the North Coquitlam Aftershock to a 2-0 victory over the Royal City Cyclones in a girls U-16 Bronze battle in New Westminster. Courtenay Connor grabbed the shutout, thanks largely to the strong pressure on the Aftershock opponents by Ashley Schaffer, Jamie Yochim and Audrie-Modica Amore. CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

CMF Real Madridâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Justin Mortimer challenges Jeramaih Zacharius of the North Coquitlam Fusion for the ball during the Coquitlam Metro-Ford U-11 and U-12 Select tournament Thanksgiving weekend at Town Centre Park. The U-12 Fusion went on to capture the gold medal.

Custeau tops at nats Coquitlam MetroFord Fusion slammed the door on Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brams United Angels 1-0 in the 2010 BMO Under-14 girls national soccer championship final earlier this month in Moncton, N.B. Arianna Johnston pounded the lone goal

for the Fusion, whose defence shut down an Angelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unit that had amassed 33 goals in their previous tournament games. The Fusionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stef ania Custeau and the Angelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Carla Portillo shared the Top Scorer award with seven goals apiece.

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD Haley Myers scored what appeared to be the deciding goal off a rebound 10 minutes in but Kensington/Little Mountain replied with a goal in the final minute as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Synergy settled for a 1-1 draw in a U-18 girls affair at Dr. Charles Best turf field. Steady defensive play by Gina Graham and Crystal Sipila, and several key early saves by goalie Daniella Stewart, were instrumental for Synergy in the deadlock. â&#x20AC;˘ Kevin Anderson registered a goal and one assist as Coquitlam MetroFord Dynamo dumped the North

Coquitlam Eagles 2-0 in a boys U-16 Silver showdown Saturday. Kevin Ilchuk rocket in the first half staked Dynamo to a 1-0 first-half margin, before Anderson sealed the win with a late short-side shot that eluded the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goalie. Kenny Williams and Bryden Fogelman were defensive standouts for the winners. â&#x20AC;˘ Jessica Applebaum, Gina Conte and Dana Townsend netted a goal apiece as the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Panthers rolled past the Tsawwassen Trouble 3-1 in a girls U-16 match Sunday. â&#x20AC;˘ Renae DuPerron scooped the shutout as the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Dynamite blanked their club rivals, the Pumas, in a girls U-14 contest Sunday. Midfielder Liz Stewart was among the Dynamite goal-getters. â&#x20AC;˘ Alivia Ungaro scored two goals and shared the shutout with Alexandra Arizanovic as the Coquitlam MetroFord Storm defeated their club-mates, the Sea Lions, 2-0 in a girls U-12 meeting.

PORT MOODY Brianne Wager and Melanie Mayede both scored in vain as Port Moody Nitro were trimmed 3-2 by the Surrey Breakers Elite in a girls U-16 Gold game Sunday. Midfielder Kassi Koupal was steady in a losing effort.

Three gâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for Basso Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carlo Basso knocked in three goals to collect his first career university hattrick as the Simon Fraser Clan blanked North Dakotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University of Mary Marauders in an NCAA Div. 2 menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer contest Tuesday at Burnaby Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Terry Fox Field. The win kept the Clan undefeated at 13-0, including 5-0 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play. A six-foot-four Archbishop Carney high school grad, the freshman Basso tallied in the 35th, 53rd and 58th minutes of the match, in which the Clan out-shot the visitors by a lopsided 23-7 margin. â&#x20AC;˘ Anna Brancati of Coquitlam tapped home a goal to help the Simon Fraser Clan to a 2-0 triumph Saturday over the host St. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saints in an NCAA Div. 2 womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer game in Lacey, Wash.

Is it Raining?

Experience the beneďŹ ts of Low Intensity Laser Light Therapy â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1996 I was hurt in a motorcycle accident, going left shoulder ďŹ rst into the pavement at 60 km/hr. Since this time I have had ongoing neck and shoulder pain, with the top of my left shoulder going numb. Doctors told me that there was nothing that could be done and that I would have to live with the pain the rest of my life. While having laser treatment for my back, I mentioned this to Dr. Bennett, after 2 sessions of laser treatment the pain and numbness disappeared! We did a total of 5 sessions and months later the pain and numbness has never returned. I want to thank Dr. Bennett and her staff, for the fantastic service they have provided and would sincerely recommend laser treatment for anyone with pain.â&#x20AC;?
