Coke bust in PoMo By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Port Moody man has been arrested for allegedly trafficking cocaine from his Heritage Mountain home. The 19-year-old was busted when Port Moody Police, with assistance from the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team, conducted a drug search warrant on the Aspenwood Drive home on Oct. 29. The search was the culmination of an extensive investigation conducted by the PMPD with help from Coquitlam RCMP and Vancouver and Delta police departments starting Aug. 22. “By Port Moody standards, it was a lengthy and complex investigation,” said PMPD Insp. Andy Richards, including surveillance and an undercover component. Richards said the investigation was initiated in the summer based on information from a PoMo business person. According to police, there were numerous drug offences committed by the accused during the investigation. Richards said the investigation will likely lead to additional arrests of Tri-City residents. “I’m not saying this is a network” of drug traffickers, Richards said, who said some of the potential arrests are linked to the accused and others aren’t. Shael Robert Michael Mazzone, 19, is charged with nine counts of trafficking in a controlled substance. spayne@tricitynews.com

More bodies, more bucks Coquitlam council starts budget process to try to keep tax hike under 5% By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Six more Mounties, five new firefighters and more staff at Coquitlam city hall to meet the needs of the evergrowing municipality are among the top requests council faces as it heads into budget talks this month. On Monday, council heard about this year’s accomplishments and

next year’s wishes from department heads — and, on Tuesday, from six cultural group representatives — all competing for tax dollars to run their operations in 2011. Recurring themes across the departments were: • the Evergreen Line, scheduled to start construction next year from Burquitlam to Town Centre, via Port Moody; • development on Burke Mountain, where another 24,000 residents will be housed over the next 20 years; • and the provincial government’s Gateway Program to twin the Port Mann bridge and build a new King

Is housing planned for Dominion Triangle in PoCo? See page 4 Edward overpass, which will see a three-month closure to traffic. City manager Peter Steblin set the tone for Monday’s day-long presentations, saying council has its work cut out when it goes into deliberations Nov. 22. Its goal is to bring the residential property tax hike under 5% while

grappling with a fixed inflation rate of 4.9%. Tied to that are the soaring utility levies that homeowners have to bear next year: • garbage/recycling up 8%, to $326; • sewer and drainage up 4%, to $387; • and water up 7%, to $384. The 2011 budget is the last financial plan council will vote on before next November’s civic election. “We all know this is going to be a difficult budget year,” Steblin repeated several times. see TO SAVE, SAVE, page 3

Tax break planned for Maillardville THE TRI-CITY NEWS

C o m m e rc i a l p ro p e r t y ow n e r s i n Maillardville will get a “tax holiday” if they build or renovate their businesses in Coquitlam’s historic francophone enclave. The development incentive, which city council is set to adopt at its next meeting, is aimed at spurring growth in a community that has taken an unusually long time to revitalize. “This will invigorate the neighbourhood,” said Coun. Mae Reid, chair of the city’s land use committee, which on Monday endorsed the tax break. The exemption — which, once approved, will be available to commercial property owners along Brunette Avenue from Marmont Street to Blue Mountain Street and Lougheed Highway — will be phased over five years in 20% increments. It would apply only to new construction or renovations over $100,000. Jim McIntyre, Coquitlam’s general manager of planning, said the tax break would apply to the value of the building only, not the land. Modelled after a program in Langley, the revitalization tax exemption is also available to businesses in Surrey and Maple Ridge.

Surrey started its program last year and waives its municipal property taxes for three years, from completion of construction on developments in city centre with a construction value over $10 million. Surrey’s program hasn’t been as successful as the city had hoped while staff in the district of Maple Ridge have reported no impact, according to city documents. Coquitlam’s planned tax break comes at the recommendation of Eric Vance, a planning and economic development consultant and adjunct professor at UBC who lives in the Tri-Cities and who studied Maillardville’s challenges earlier this year. Coun. Brent Asmundson questioned why the program wouldn’t be applied to businesses in the rest of Coquitlam, especially neighbourhoods also going through a revitalization, such as Burquitlam and Austin Heights. “This community has challenges,” Coun. Selina Robinson said of Maillardville. “There are many different landowners... at some point, we may expand [the program].” “Maillardville is a unique area,” Coun. Barrie Lynch added. “I think that if this is successful, then we can use it in other parts of the city. It’s the type of thing that we need to do.” jwarren@tricitynews.com

To save, ‘Why don’t we buy used cars?’ continued from front page

The belt tightening is nothing new to Coquitlam; two years ago, when the global recession hit, the city faced a $5-million shortfall from lower interest rates and declining revenues from construction. This year, however,, development cost charges are on the upswing and “we believe 2012 will be better,” Steblin said, referring to the overall financial picture. To scrimp and save, Steblin recently “challenged” department managers to suggest where they could permanently cut 5% to 10% from their budgets — an exercise that piqued some council members. Coun. Barrie Lynch took issue with the Coquitlam RCMP’s offer to slash two Mountie positions, which would free up $238,500. The impact would mean less policing of marijuana grow operations and fewer resources to manage new community response projects, Supt. Claude Wilcott reported. “You know that none of us are going to say ‘Yes’ to that,” Lynch said, irritated. The city’s engineering department also put forward two positions for elimination to save $130,000 while Coquitlam Fire/Rescue suggested three jobs go (two firefighter posts and the public educator), translating into a $198,000 saving. Some councillors questioned whether some services, such as parking enforcement and legal counsel, could be done in-house to stretch the dollar; others bristled over the numbers presented, in particular an extra $50,000 for labour relations legal advice for

grievances headed to arbitration and $30,400 for four new laptop computers and $60,000 for two more vehicles for bylaw officers. “Why don’t we buy used cars?” Coun. Selina Robinson asked. “We have to look at little ways of how we can save money. We don’t need to get them right off the lot. We need to look at better deals.” Meanwhile, some councillors commented on items not on the table, such as a five-year capital plan for Coquitlam Fire/Rescue to build a new fire hall on Burke Mountain and a replacement for Trevor Wingrove, the city’s corporate services manager, who died earlier this year. As well, Coun. Neal Nicholson said the budget doesn’t take into consideration a possible pay freeze for council members.

Warehouses to homes in Dominion Triangle By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Two Port Coquitlam city councillors say they fear that converting a portion of the Dominion Triangle from industrial to residential use could set a precedent that would hurt future job growth in the municipality. Coun. Mike Forrest acknowledged that a proposal to convert a 21-acre parcel, which sits along Dominion Avenue east of the planned Fremont Connector, would benefit the city in the short term with development cost charges and an influx of property tax. But he said a reduction in industrial land would decrease the number of high-paying jobs in the area, something Forrest said would hurt PoCo in the future. “This is a major step in the shaping of our city,” he told his council colleagues during Monday’s meeting. “This will cause us further erosion [of industrial land] later because it will end up... setting the precedent in the change of industrial land to utilize for residential property.” Forrest said a long-term plan for the entire Dominion Triangle is necessary before he would consider supporting a proposal that would see industrial land converted into residential. Coun. Sherry Carroll agreed with Forrest, saying the city should also complete its corporate strategic plan before mak-

ing major land use decisions in the area. But they were the only dissenters to giving first two readings to the OCP amendment, FORREST which received enough support from council to proceed to public hearing. Coun. Glen Pollock, who chairs the city’s smar t g rowth POLLOCK committee, said he supported the proposal because it would help spur development in other parts of the Dominion Triangle. He added that the proposed residential development is tied to the remaining industrial land adjacent to the property, meaning both projects would be built at the same time. Under the current industrial land use designation, build-out of the property is expected to be completed in the next 20 years. With the change to some residential use, build-out would likely take place in the next few years, he said. “I am of the opinion that if we don’t proceed with this, it will sit for 20 or 30 years,” he said. “I think it has been studied to death and I think we need to make a decision on it.” Coun. Brad West, who cochairs the smart growth commit-

Who did what? How They Voted: page 17 tee, said the conversion from industrial land to residential would help replenish the city’s coffers with development cost charge revenue, reserves that have been depleted with the construction of the Coast Meridian Overpass. He said the city stands to make $4.6 million from DCCs with a residential development as opposed to about $130,000 from an industrial development. Mayor Greg Moore noted the changes in the region that have taken place since the Dominion Triangle was first designated for industrial use. At that time, he said, Port Coquitlam sat in a prime area of the region for the movement of goods, easily connected to the south of Fraser area via the Port Mann bridge while sitting north of the Fraser. But changes in the region’s transportation infrastructure, particularly the new Golden Ears bridge and the upgraded Pitt River bridge, have made other parts of the Lower Mainland more attractive for industrial development. “Because of land value, it will be a lot harder to attract industrial development,” he said. “This [proposal] is allowing us to get that industrial.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

10% of patients get a convalescent fee break $29.40 daily charge on patients is under renewed fire By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Some convalescent care patients deemed to be in financial hardship aren’t paying the province’s controversial new $29.40 per day fee for room and board while they recover from a hospital stay. Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe said hardship waivers have so far been granted to 30 patients, or close to 10% of the 315 patients admitted to convalescent care units since April 19, when the new fees took effect. Only one patient who requested a waiver has been denied and in most cases the waivers eliminated the fee altogether, Thorpe said. Patients who request a waiver must provide financial statements. There is no income cut-off to be eligible — the health authority instead judges the patients’ financial ability to pay based on a combination of their income, rent, medical and other costs. Critics of the fees say they cause stress to the patients — most of whom are over 75 — and might even contravene the Canada Health Act. “Seniors cannot af-

ford it,” said Alice Edge, co-chair of the B.C. Health Coalition. “If people are receiving medically necessary treatment or care, user fees should not be introduced.” Convalescent care is for patients who have been discharged from hospital but need more time to recover under supervised care, provided in several residential care homes around the region. There are concerns some patients will try to go home sooner than they should because of the fees or else may refuse to go into convalescent care and remain in hospital, occupying beds needed for acute patients and contributing to hospital congestion.

Container village campaign continues in funding quest By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A group of Tri-City residents pushing a proposal that would see container-based modular housing used as a temporary homeless shelter moved one step closer to garnering some private funds for the project. Container Village received enough votes to move the entry into the top 10 of the Aviva Community Fund online contest, allowing it to carry on to the next round of voting, which begins Dec. 2. The proposal, which was spearheaded by Coquitlam Boyd Autobody owner Gerry Sly and backed by the Hope for Freedom Society and the TriCities Homelessness Task Group, could win between $100,000 and $500,000. The money would be used to operate the shelter and the services that are neces-

Robert Clogg, who has been working with Sly to promote the entry, said he was relieved when the votes were tallied and Container Village found itself in the top 10. “It has just been really exciting,” he said. “I don’t think there was any submission that hovered around 10th place as long we did. It was kind of gut-

wrenching.” Clogg, Sly and their supporters now have until Dec. 2 to rally voters for the next round of the contest. If they are able to get enough votes to crack the top 10 again, their proposal will then go before a panel of judges responsible for selecting the winner.

Time to remember

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

S

pending a few minutes in silence at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month is a small gesture to show our respect for the men and women who sacrificed their lives to preserve freedom and democracy in Canada and abroad. Tri-City residents are among the most thoughtful in Canada this time of year. Our schools encourage students to remember Canada’s war dead with special ceremonies, including a recent Holocaust symposium to bear witness to the horrors of Jewish genocide. Our veterans are among the most active, raising $46,000 in poppy campaigns and visiting local schools and shopping malls to share their stories, often fighting physical frailties to do so. And local residents continue to be generous with their poppy donations. This is also the perfect time for Tri-City residents to right a wrong that has gone on too long. For too many years, veterans of the Korean War have largely gone ignored, even though 27,000 of them fought between 1950 and 1953 and 500 died during that conflict. Were it not for their contributions, South Korea might not be as prosperous as it is today and Tri-City would not be benefiting from the many commercial, familial and educational partnerships that have resulted in a strong economy and a renowned international education community. This gap in our collective consciousness could, however, soon be closing thanks to the efforts of Port Moody resident Guy Black. Using his own resources, Black has mounted an international, non-partisan campaign to get a second commemorative stamp issued in time for 2013, the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War. Among the supporters are Sen. Yonah Martin, a former Tri-City federal candidate, and NDP MP Fin Donnelly. Both are taking Black’s collection of more than 200 letters of support to Ottawa to win support for a Korean War stamp in 2013. Will the stamp campaign succeed? No one knows but one thing is certain: More people know about Canada’s involvement in the Korean war than they did before. That alone is worth a moment of silence.

As he leaves, Campbell pushes industrial legacy BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA ordon Campbell isn’t going to get close to W.A.C. Bennett’s record of 20 years in the premier’s office, but he intends to leave a footprint at least as large on B.C. Campbell’s surprise resignation last week came as I was attempting to sort out his latest reorganization of resource ministries. His comments since then have made me even more convinced that this is the key task he intends to push to the point of no return before he goes. While the city media obsess over the horse race of potential candidates to succeed Campbell, this much more significant story is unfolding quietly in government offices around the province. Thousands of provincial employees are being moved and shaken to build the new Ministry of Natural Resource Operations.

G

Here’s a partial list of what this ministry is now legally responsible for: wildfire management, Crown land and forest permits, independent power production, road and bridge engineering, mineral and coal titles, resorts and alpine ski developments, fish and wildlife management, drought management, watershed restoration and aboriginal consultation on resource development. And here is a partial list of what Campbell intends to see develop through this ministry: the Site C dam, a province-wide network of new mines, forest tenures, liquefied natural gas production and export facilities, new independent power projects and all the roads, power lines and pipes needed to connect them. This is a wave of industrialization on a scale with Cecil Bennett’s creation of BC Hydro, BC Ferries and BC Rail. An internal memo circulated to staff in the forest, transportation, environment and other ministries gives assurances that the B.C. Forest Service will celebrate its 100th anniversary as planned in 2012. But by then, it will be effectively broken up, divided be-

tween the ministries of forests and natural resource operations, and traditional jobs such as forest enforcement officer and conservation officer will be merged. Before this reorganization was announced, I asked Energy Minister Bill Bennett about the government’s plans for a feed-in tariff program for new sources of electricity. Bennett (no relation to the two former premiers) said he intends to have it in place as soon as possible, perhaps by the end of the year. It will be nothing like the Ontario program, which heavily subsidizes farmers for putting solar panels in their fields, Bennett said. The B.C. program will subsidize development of emerging sources, particularly those using wood waste. “You put a First Nation together with a community that’s lost a bunch of jobs from the pine beetle, together with a form of electricity producing technology, and as long as you can generate the electricity for a reasonable price, you might have a winning project,” Bennett said. “That to me is how you

encapsulate the feed-in tariff program.” For years there has been debate about the decline of small communities, loss of industrial jobs and wildfire management in B.C.’s vast hinterlands. In short, how do you keep smaller, remote communities economically viable, and how do they protect themselves from fire? Here, at least, is a plan that offers a way to tackle the huge problem of accumulated forest fuel, waste from traditional logging, and jobs and energy supply in remote areas. It will be subsidized by the vast majority of electricity users who enjoy the benefits of the urban economy. There will be plenty of talk in the weeks to come about Campbell’s legacy. The income tax cuts, the HST, both are designed to create an environment for private investment and employment. But the resource development plan may be the most important piece of the puzzle.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS City’s heritage can be solid tourism asset in Coquitlam The Editor, Re. “Coquitlam council seeks tourism opportunities” (The Tri-City News, Oct. 29). Janis Warren’s report focused our attention yet again on the challenge of increasing tourism in Coquitlam. A good strategy for attracting more visitors to Coquitlam would be one that recognizes strengths and leverages existing assets. Mackin House Museum is Coquitlam’s only museum, a 101-yearold heritage house that sits at the centre of historic Maillardville in Heritage Square. It shares the square with the original Fraser Mills Station, a vintage caboose and a first-class art school, Place des Arts. It is just up the street from Ikea (the largest tourism draw in the Tri-Cities). Mackin Park is just across the street and the upstairs windows at the house provide a marvellous view of the brand

Why the fuss, dog owners? The Editor, Today, I heard my neighbours’ dogs working themselves into another one of their blood-curdling, frothing-at-the-mouth frenzies. As I looked out my window to see what had disturbed these incarcerated creatures, I saw the problem: A woman was walking down the street with a small dog on a leash. As I watched, she stopped and waited for her dog to defecate beside my driveway. She left the feces there and continued on her way. This is, by the way, right around

the corner from a park. It has become a common practice for people to walk their dogs and stop and use other people’s property as a dog run. Most dog owners display flagrant selfishness and disrespect without fear of consequence. The typical response if you suggest that they follow the bylaws, is “Are you a cop?” I am curious, though, and would like one of them to write in and explain why they feel entitled to defile the neighbourhood with urine, feces and stressful noise.

Wood-burning bylaws are needed

Special events often attract locals to Mackin House Museum in Coquitlam, which is one of a number of heritage assets the city has to attract tourists, says the letter writer. new art installation at the park. Heritage Square exists as a bona fide tourist destination for Coquitlam; we receive visitors from across Canada and around the world. It is a heritage resource with infra-

structure, location and cultural value. It is here and it is municipally funded — not a dream or a vision for the future but a reality today. We shouldn’t overlook what is an obvious component for a sound strategy going forward.

Mackin House Museum is an important asset to be recognized as an attractive feature in support of a comprehensive tourism plan for Coquitlam. Jill Cook, Executive Director, Coquitlam Heritage Society

The Editor, Port Coquitlam residents are invited to participate in molding a greener, futuristic view of our city. Improving neighbourhood air quality would be a vital step to going green. Air quality differs from one residential area to another. Poor neighbourhood air quality is noted in areas where wood-burning fireplaces exist. Fireplaces are a very uncontrolled source of air pollution, according to a professor in UBC’s School of Environmental Health. Wood smoke poses a health threat to wood stove and fireplace users and to their neighbours, states Washington State Department of Ecology. Emissions from one chimney can foul the air of all the sur-

rounding neighbours and present health hazards. How informed people are about these health hazards contained in wood smoke emissions is a guess. Many individuals do not relate a scratchy throat (or the “not quite feeling right”) to wood-smoke. Are people aware that these symptoms could be the beginning of a serious condition related to wood-smoke emissions? For council and environment enhancement committee to implement a no-burning bylaw should not depend on how many people are complaining but needs to be based on the fact that too many people’s health will be affected if a ban does not take place.

Coq. cenotaph gets a facelift By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Tri-City residents attending Remembrance Day ceremonies at the Coquitlam cenotaph on Thursday will likely notice several major upgrades to the area. Phase one of a cenotaph enhancement project was recently completed, removing much of the vegetation around the site. New boxes to support flag poles have been added and there is now more space to accommodate visitors. “It is really important for the vets,” said Skip Proulx, a member

of the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. “It really looks wonderful. Compared to what it was, it’s night and day.” This year, grandstands can be placed behind the Porter Street cenotaph, something that was previously not possible due to the surrounding vegetation. More upgrades are expected in 2011 as crews work to raise the cenotaph. Proulx said the legion originally intended to relocate the commemorative monument but feared that it could break during the move. Instead, they plan to put the cenotaph on a platform, which

will allow spectators to view it from further away. The project was able to go forward thanks to a $5,000 contribution from Jack Cewe Ltd. and Proulx said some federal grants are expected to be made available for the upgrades. Corporate donations are also welcome, he said. Once this year’s Remembrance Day ceremonies are complete, Proulx said the legion will have more time to plan the next phase of the project. He expects the second phase to be completed by next year’s event. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Black: vets should be recognized with stamp By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Can a piece of paper not much bigger than a thumbnail make up for years of neglect? Port Moody resident Guy Black thinks so and is pushing for a commemorative Korean War stamp to honour veterans he believes have been ignored. On Monday, Black placed his collection of 212 letters of support for a Korean War stamp in the hands of New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly and Sen. Yonah Martin. The local politicians will now take up the cause in Ottawa to spur the Canadian Stamp Advisory Committee to issue a stamp in 2013 commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Korean War ceasefire. “We have to keep the pressure on. We just can’t sit and wait,” said Black, who noted time is of the essence to honour 27,000 Korean War vets and the 500 men who died during the conflict.

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Guy Black and Warren Byrnell hold the petition calling for a Korean War stamp. This would be the second stamp honouring the Korean vets but Black said it’s a small gesture and an urgent one because those who participated in Canada’s first United Nations force from 1950 to 1953 are dying. Black has long campaigned for more recognition for those who fought in the Korean War, which many have dubbed the “forgotten war.” He now has the support of Donnelly and Mar tin, who both

say they believe that Canada’s Korean War vets deserve more recognition. “He came to me with his personal commitment and convinced me to take the issue seriously,” explained Donnelly, who will present his collection of letters to the House of Commons while Martin will deliver hers to fellow senators in the upper house. Martin said it’s important to recognize the contributions of Korean War vets. Since the

ceasefire, Canada has established strong relations with the Republic of Korea that continue today and people should know how Canadian soldiers stood by the Korean people. Even some Koreans need to be educated, she said, because many don’t know of Canada’s participation, which was the third largest of the UN forces, although they are well aware of the American contributions. “They [Korean people] are startled when they hear the numbers,” Martin said. Sonny Son, president of the Korea Veterans Association Wester n Canada, said a Korean War stamp would be good publicity for Canada because the ceasefire resulted in more or less peaceful relations between North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, and South Korea. “Technically, war is still going on. People have to know that peace is working,” he said. Hostilities that broke

out between North and South Korea in 1950 were the result of unresolved issues stemming from the Second World War, Son said, and at the time, there were only about 2,000 Canadian soldiers in two divisions. Thousands responded to the call for volunteers for the United Nations mission and they deserve recognition, said Son, noting, “We owe Canada, the Korean people.” A stamp would be a small but much-appreciated acknowledgement of the contributions of Korean War vets, said former Coquitlam r e s i d e n t Wa r r e n Byrnell, who thanked Black for his efforts. He noted that a unit of Canadian Korean War vets received rare Distinguished Unit Citations from the American government for helping to repel Chinese forces during the the battle of Kap’Yong. “This stamp is really important,” said Byrnell, a Maple Ridge resident who was

a member of the Royal Canadian Electrical Mechanical Engineers and belongs to the Korea Veterans Association of Canada. Although the Stamp Advisory Committee is an independent body that decides without political interference what stamps to issue, a

national campaign will make it clear people think honouring Korean vets with a second stamp is a worthwhile thing to do, Black said. If 2013 passes with no Korean War stamp, the opportunity will be lost, he said, because there won’t be any veterans around for the 100th anniversary.

Remembering goes hi-tech at Coquitlam middle school THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Kids can now blog, tweet or post on Facebook their remembrance, and students at Sir Frederick Banting middle school were among the first to try out a new high tech communications tool when veterans visited their school yesterday (Tuesday). A DVD containing dozens of video clips students could upload to their online profiles was handed out with the goal of encouraging teens to remember the sacrifices of Canadian veterans on Remembrance Day. Produced by Veterans Affairs Canada, the DVD includes clips of veterans telling stories about their war experiences as well as archival footage from the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War. “Stories are a big thing now,” acknowledged Russ Hellard, who served with the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals in Australia during the Second World War. Canada’s veterans are aging, he said, and it’s important to bring their stories to light so future generations have some idea of the sacrifices that were made. H i s g ro u p, t h e Dogwood Veterans, produced three volumes of memories and yesterday brought the memorabilia to Banting so students could get up close and personal with war vets. “It’s just part of our re m e m b r a n c e, ” e x plained Hellard, whose job it was in 1944 to monitor Japanese military communication in the Pacific war zone. The men and women brought photos from when they served and matched them to pictures from the present day, creating an intriguing time capsule. Hellard brought his collection of boomerangs and occupation money — small paper chits that were

used by occupying forces as currency. Another vet was expected to bring his collection of bullets. “The kids like looking at the bullets,” Hellard said. But the students aren’t so enthusiastic about reading the group’s collection of books, he said, noting, “They poke through them a bit.” He hopes they will get a kick out of the DVDs. Hellard belongs to the Royal Canadian Legion but started the Dogwood Veterans as a social group. The members meet monthly for lunch to fraternize but the club is starting to thin out and it’s getting harder to find enough healthy veterans to carry and set up the displays at Banting. A robust dozen was expected out for Tuesday’s event. “They get emotional if they can’t make it for some reason,” Hellard said, and it’s usually a health concern.

According to information circulated this week, 20 windows were broken at 14 schools on the Halloween weekend, with most of the damage reported on Nov. 1. As well, eight schools reported graffiti damage to school property between Oct. 28 and Nov. 1. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Port Moody secondary students Ethen Kwak, Nicolas Tellex, Haider Nayani and Angelica Nino are participating in the Arts Door Project.

Opening the Arts Door By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A group of Tri-City teens is learning more about their community and encouraging arts and cultural businesses and organizations to be more welcoming to immigrants. Students participating in the Arts Door Project, supported by SUCCESS, are compiling a list of agencies and businesses in the arts and culture industry for a Google map that will make them more accessible to young people, especially newcomers. While compiling their research, the students are also finding out about training, hiring and customer services policies to find out whether there are gaps in local business practices. “We are trying to make our community more welcoming to immigrants,” explained Haider Nayani, whose

parents immigrated to Canada from Pakistan. The Grade 11 student at Port Moody secondary school is one of 14 young people researching 50 businesses and organizations and conducting interviews for a website, and a report that will be presented to local city councils in March. Among the organizations the group are researching are local community centres and arts organizations, such as Place des Arts. When the website is up, businesses interested in participating on the Google map will be able to fill out a survey and get involved, Nayani said. “We’re looking at things like diversity in the workforce, is there a feedback process, are there signs and are there brochures in multiple languages and programs offered in other languages,” Nayani said.

Bees make good neighbours Family’s heritage apple tree flourishes thanks to neighbour’s mason bees By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The neighbourhood around Nestor elementary school is as pretty as can be, with neat homes on tidy lots and streets that come to an end on a leafy greenbelt. And soon, it may be as productive as an Okanagan orchard thanks to the introduction of some new neighbours: mason bees. The story begins on Andrea Mattinson’s front lawn, where a small apple tree is giving new meaning to the word “prolific.” With its branches pruned for fall, Mattinson’s little apple tree looks like it should be the Charlie Brown tree of the or-

chard but this summer it was The Hulk. This tiny tree is the fruitful progeny of another equally bountiful tree in Burnaby that is more than 100 years old and still producing apples on a single large branch. “It’s a crooked old thing and the trunk’s all split” is the way Mattinson describes the tree that has been in the family for generations. Every fall, Mattinson recalls, she and her sister would go to their grandparents’ home in north Burnaby, pick apples and scoop up the windfalls. The large, red apples splotched with green weren’t so great to eat raw but are perfect in apple sauce, delicious in pie and strudel. “We all love to bake,” Mattinson said, and so the family got the idea of finding a way to reproduce the tree after new owners took over the property. Her father, Gino Gemma, hired a horticulturist, who grafted four branches of the

heritage tree onto root stock in honour of his wife’s family, the Millikens, who planted it more than a century ago. “It should be dead but it’s still there,” jokes Gemma of the one-branched tree that still produces fruit. No one knows what kind of apple tree it is but the propagator from the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association kept a few grafts for herself and said she would call it the Milliken apple tree after the Burnaby pioneers. One tree was planted in Surrey, another in Burnaby, where Gemma and his wife live. Another went to their Pender Island property and one was planted in Coquitlam, on Mattinson’s front lawn, where she hoped it would thrive in the late-afternoon sun. For two years, the little tree did nothing but sprout some leaves and grow a few branches — until this past spring. Mattinson said she watched in amaze-

ment when blossoms started to grow and was astonished to see dozens of bees flying around. She mentioned the phenomenon to her neighbour, Nancy Chapman, and found out that the busy bees came from a bee box outside Chapman’s kitchen window. It turns out that while Mattinson was experimenting with her apple tree, Chapman was learning about mason bees from her dad, who raises them at his home in west Coquitlam. Now, the two neighbours have become bee enthusiasts. They can’t quite get over the fact that Mattinson’s little tree produced over 50 apples when the family’s other grafted trees produced only one or two. “It must be the bees,” said Mattinson’s dad, who plans to raise more bees, too. If all goes well, the families will be trading bees and sharing in the harvest — which is what good neighbours do. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

CHRISTMAS GIVING: The season to help has begun

Volunteers needed for Share’s Xmas campaigns Share Family and Community Services is looking for volunteers for its upcoming Christmas campaign and letting people know that registration has begun for people who need a little extra help this holiday season. Last year, nearly 1,700 families received Christmas hampers, an increase of about 20% over the previous year, and Scott expects as many families or more to sign up for a hamper and a toy for their children. Thus, volunteers are needed to help sort food and toys, drive the truck to pick up food, wrap gifts at Coquitlam Centre and help out with special events. Meanwhile, registration started last Wednesday for individuals and families living in the Tri-Cities that need a Christmas hamper. Toys and gifts are also available for children 17 years and younger and can be picked up by registered, custodial parents with required documents when Share’s Toy Shop opens. (For more information about registration visit www. sharesociety.ca and click on “Learn More About Christmas at Share.”)

Share has the following volunteer postings available: • Unwrapped: A Charitable Night of Shopping at Coquitlam Centre on Nov. 23 between 7 and 11 p.m., involving fashion, savings and tasty treats (www.coquitlamcentre.com/unwrapped). Share is looking for energetic volunteers who are comfortable being around the public. To volunteer, call Heather Stacey at 604-529-5107. Volunteers must be 19 years or older to help at this event. • Gift wrapping and the Share Christmas Tree at Coquitlam Centre will run Dec. 3 to 24 during mall hours; more than 500 shifts must be filled.

It’s not too early for this Xmas tree If you bring a toy to a local Vancity branch, you can help make Christmas brighter for kids in need. Once again, Tri-City Vancity branches are teaming up with Tri-City Transitions (formerly the Tri-City Women’s Resource Centre Society) to provide gifts for children. Through Dec. 8, Vancity branches are inviting the public to choose an angel from the tree and fulfill a child’s wish by leaving that gift (unwrapped) under the Angel Tree. The gifts will go to families supported by Tri-City Transitions, a non-profit organization that helps those who have been affected by violence and abuse.

THE BRANCHES

The donor program is available at the following local branches: • Pinetree Branch, 2991 Lougheed Hwy., Coquitlam; • Maillardville Branch, 1013 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam; • Shaughnessy Station Branch, 2850 Shaughnessy St., PoCo; • North Side Branch, #130-2325 Ottawa St., PoCo; • Port Moody Branch, #5-121 Brew St., Port Moody; • North Road Branch, 3977 North Rd., Burnaby.

Books of remembrance A GOOD READ Lori Nick “To forget would be not only dangerous but offensive; to forget the dead would be akin to killing them a second time. The witness has forced himself to testify. For the youth of today, for the children who will be born tomorrow. He does not want his past to become their future.” – Elie Wiesel, author and Nobel Prize Winner

M

any people avoid reading books about the Holocaust. The details of the treatment that millions of children, women and men endured during the Second World War are horrific. It is difficult to read how so many innocent people were humiliated, tortured and killed. I read Holocaust literature because of the amazing courage of the people who lived to tell their stories of survival and to speak for those who did not survive. The strength of character and determination it would have taken to survive a Nazi labour or concentration camp is awe-inspiring. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank was one of the first books I read concerning the Holocaust. But other women who lived through the Holocaust as teenagers have also written memoirs or have had their stories told by others. Edith Velmans-Van Hessen was a Jewish teenager who was hidden by a Dutch Christian family during the war. Velmans uses her teenage diary and letters from her parents to tell her story in Edith’s Story: The True Story of a Young Girl’s Courage and Survival During World War II. I Escape Into Darkness: The True Story of a Young Woman’s Survival During World War II by Sonia Games is an unforgettable book about a young Jewish girl who is orphaned. She is 10 years old when there is a bomb raid in her hometown of Praszka, Poland. Sonia survives the war by pretending to be an Aryan Christian while aiding resistance groups at the same time. It is a remarkable story of survival and courage. Sala’s Gift: My Mother’s Holocaust Story is written by Ann Kirschner, whose mother, Sala, was sent to work at Organization Schmelt labour camps

in Poland at the age of 16. Kirschner re-creates Sala’s struggle to survive with photographs and letters that Sala had written and received throughout her fiveyear imprisonment in seven camps. Strange and Unexpected Love: A Teenage Girl’s Holocaust Memoirs is written by Fanya Gottesfeld Heller. At the age of 15, Heller and her family were forced into hiding and she survived with the help of a non-Jewish Ukrainian militia man with whom she falls in love. There are also books about the Holocaust that have been written for younger readers. Ruth Minsky Sender was 13 years old when the Germans invaded Poland. In her memoir The Cage, Sender writes about caring for her younger siblings in a ghetto after her mother is arrested. Later, she is sent to Auschwitz and then a slave labour camp. Publisher’s Weekly states this memoir is suitable for readers ages 10 and older. Livia Bitton-Jackson was 13 years old when Hungary was invaded in 1944. She and her mother were sent to Auschwitz and Bitton-Jackson describes her horrific experiences in I Have Lived a Thousand Years: Growing up in the Holocaust. This memoir is suitable for ages 12 and up. By the end of the Second World War, the Nazis had killed six million Jews, including an estimated 1.2 million children. Many Holocaust survivors have written powerful descriptions about their terrible experiences. They lost parents, grandparents, and siblings, and their childhoods had been stolen. We owe the survivors not to forget or ignore the horrors of war but to honour their losses by remembering and understanding what so many were forced to endure. A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Lori Nick works at Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Public Library.

What’s with kids and colour? THE CONTINUING ADVENTURES Naomi Yorke Plain brown boxes provide children with all they need to have fun

W

hy is it that children are surrounded with bright colours? Do bright colour fields really stimulate children more than monochromatic ones? When I was a baby, my mom created a monochromatic world for me. As a baby, my nursery was painted and decorated completely in black and white, with hints of bright red positioned carefully and sparingly. Black and white was dominant. My mom carefully selected black-andwhite stuffed animals for my shelves

(panda bears, zebras and penguins.) Did this colour deprivation inspire me and turn me into an artist? Certainly, it didn’t hurt me or stifle my creative imagination. Why are children’s spaces filled with rainbows and bright colours? We are programmed to believe that young children need or want colour stimulation and will thrive in an environment with bright colours. Manufacturers create brightly coloured sweets and toys to stimulate children. Is this because of programming? Do children choose bright colours because we adults expect them to? Are these choices made because of children’s desires or because we program them into these choices through our creation of the brightly coloured child-like world? Would a child like a sweet candy less if it were not coloured in the rainbow swirls? Would this candy actually be less palatable if it were beige? Would a toy be less interesting to a child if it were not painted or manufactured in bright hues?

I remember when I was a young child that I would get amazing gifts for my birthday and Christmas but often I was more attracted to the brown paper boxes they came in than the toys themselves. With a plain box, you can create your own world. Our parents and friends and older siblings teach us that it is what is in the box (the coloured toys) that is more important than the box itself so we accept this and learn to value those multicoloured treasures. I have a fond childhood memory of creating a fort out of boxes in my living room with my friend. We created our own magic world. So why is it that monochromatic memory of my childhood is more powerful than any other memory? Naomi Yorke is a Port Coquitlam student who lived in Shanghai, China for four years, writing about her experiences twice a month for The Tri-City News. She now lives in Chicago, where she’s attending art school, and continues her column.

THE COLOUR OF FALL

Nastoh to speak at CPL living library Douglas College, Coquitlam library team up to lend out living ‘books’ Coquitlam Public Library, in partnership with Douglas College, has been hosting Living Library events in which living “books� — i.e., people — are made available to patrons for oneon-one conversations. Some “books� are subject experts who are prepared to share their knowledge of fascinating topics while others are people NASIMA NASTOH who may be misunderstood or underestimated based on the occupational, racial, religious or lifestyle labels we place upon them. Meant to battle prejudice, the Living Library program encourages people to probe beneath the surface and learn about living, breathing people, rather than dwelling on stereotypes pushed by the media or by one’s personal HAMED NASTOH bias. As Nov. 20 is International Children’s Day, CPL will be dealing with children’s issues such as: bullying; autism; Down syndrome; home-schooling; adoption; parenting in a multicultural, multi-lingual, multi-religious households. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Living Book specialists will be parents, children and instructors from Douglas College. And as Nov. 15 to 19 is Anti-Bullying Week, the library’s special guest will be Nasima Nastoh, mother of Hamed Nastoh, who committed suicide by jumping from the Patullo Bridge in March 2000. Hamed left a seven-page suicide note for his family, who had no idea of Hamed’s troubles with bullies at school. Refreshments will be served.

New forum for storytellers By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Visual artists show their work in a gallery, playwrights and musicians use the stage and fashion designers own the catwalk. But what platform do furniture makers, glassworkers and other craftsmen that fly under the radar have? Seven years ago, architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham asked the same question. Their answer was PechaKucha, an informal mingle that gives any creative type a forum to talk about their talent and pursuits through a slideshow. Japanese for “chit chat,” PechaKucha has since gone global with 364 cities taking part in the movement, including Vancouver,

Victoria — and now, Coquitlam. This past spring, Helen Daniels of ArtsConnect, a non-profit arts society in the Tri-Cities, applied to the PechaKucha headquarters in Tokyo for permission to host the required four shows a year (the name is trademarked). Once the group got the green light in July, it started solidifying its list of presenters for Volume 1, to be held Monday, Nov. 15 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Daniels and co-project facilitator Mandara Lebovitz had already selected a few names as part of their bid to run PechaKucha Coquitlam and, through word of mouth and reputation, they managed to secure a total of nine presenters: Linda Arkelian, Jillian Han, Jenipher Hur, Fae Logie, Gaetan Royer,

YarOn Stern, Eva Wunderman, Jay Peachy and Lisa Walker. As well, when it was announced at the last PechaKucha Vancouver at the Vogue Theatre that Coquitlam was to start a new volume, ArtsConnect clinched a sponsor: Peter Edmonds of Mosiac Homes, a Tri-City homebuilder, approached Daniels afterwards and offered funding for PKNCoquitlam. PechaKucha works like this: During a social, presenters are invited to the stage to show 20 images at 20 seconds each (total exhibition time is about 6.5 minutes). They talk about the background to each piece and how they got to finished product. The aim is not just for presenters to showcase their project; it’s also for the audience to hear the artist first-hand and, possibly, to spark the

imagination. The presenter doesn’t have to be an artist, Daniels said. “It’s people who have a story to tell,” she said. “It can be an adventure, too,” referring to a Vancouver presenter who spoke about running the West Coast Trail. “It’s people who have done something interesting and creative.” Daniels said ArtsConnect has given the PKNCoquitlam presenters the freedom to display what they want; however, unlike Vancouver organizers, the group has vetted the material for its inaugural event. • Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at the Evergreen Cultural Centre for PechaKucha Coquitlam, with the Nov. 15 show starting an hour later. Tickets at $12 are available through pkncoqvol1.eventbrite.com.

Shutterbugs’ show at Inlet Theatre Digital photography club’s annual show to showcase members’ best work By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

If the thought of a slideshow conjures memories of mind-numbing hours spent clicking through your relatives’ awful vacation photos — every step captured in blurry, badly composed shots — then it’s time to banish those thoughts for Photomotion 2010 on Nov. 13. This is the seventh annual photo slideshow event put on by the Pacific Digital Photography Club (PDPC), a large group of shutterbugs from throughout the Lower Mainland that meets twice a month at Port Moody secondary school. The membership averages about 110 each year, and the only requirement is a serious interest in digital photography. That interest — and serious talent, too

— are on display at Photomotion, the annual sound slideshow. About 32 shows were submitted and a jury of four photographers, trained by the Canadian Association for Photographic Art in judging photo shows, whittled it down to 21. “The quality of the photography is what makes it very unique and very special,” said Photomotion organizer Jim Hayes. Each photographer will give a brief introduction to their show to describe the theme, location or any special features audience members should be on the look-out for. Set to music, the shows are up to four minutes long and the number of images in each depends on how the photographer has programmed the show, but on average there are about 30 to 40. There is a wide range of themes in this year’s show, ranging from nature photography to travelogues, show and shines, portraits and lifestyle. “They have to have a ‘wow’ factor,” said Hank Weverink, PDPC’s projected images co-ordinator.

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Hank Weverink, the Pacific Digital Photography Club’s projected images co-ordinator, sits in front of one of the photos that will be in Photomotion 2010 on Nov. 13. And while there are many rules to creating a good photograph — the rule of thirds, balance, shape and form being among them — Weverink sums up the key to a good pic-

ture by saying that, “if it’s good, it just attracts you in some way.” see PDPC AIMS, AIMS, page 35

Buy original art at the Art Focus show Anybody who’s noticed Port Coquitlam’s brightly painted utility box near city hall — and it’s hard not to notice this new public art work — has spotted the talent of local artist Kali Barry. Barry, an avid photographer since high school, added painting to her artistic repertoire about five years ago. This fall she is among many Art Focus artists displaying (and selling) their work in the 16th annual Art Focus Fall Art Show and Sale Nov. 12 to 14 at the Outlet at Leigh Square. After Barry was commissioned to paint the electrical box behind city hall she was inspired by the area’s prolific flower gardens, and continued her colourful work on canvas. The result is a series of paintings she calls “Fireworks of Flowers.â€? • The Fall Art Show and Sale, featuring original art works by artists in a variety of styles and sizes, kicks off with an opening reception Nov. 12 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. and continues Nov. 13 and 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Outlet at Leigh Square.

is a unique program dedicated to providing impaired drivers with a safe ride home. Essentially, it is a volunteer driving service provided during the Christmas Holiday Season to all drivers who have been drinking or who do not feel ďŹ t to drive their own vehicle back home. It is an original and free way of getting a safe ride in their own vehicle without driving it themselves!

The Operation Red Nose service requires a team of three volunteers: Escort driver: the person who transports the designated driver & navigator in his or her own car to the client’s location. Designated driver: the person that drives the client home in the client’s car. Navigator: the person that accompanies the designated driver and the client, in the client’s car, to record the client information and provide directions to the designated driver.

The service is free. Although Operation Red Nose is a free service, we do welcome client donations. 100% of the donations received are turned over to Tri-Cities KidSport.

Tickets

Please volunteer and help make this a safer Christmas Holiday Season.

$13.50 + HST adults $11.00 + HST students & seniors

Each time your team delivers an impaired driver and their vehicle safely home, you have made the Tri-Cities a safer place for you, your family and your friends.

PDPC aims to aid skills continued from page 33

Hayes said many of this year’s contributors have presented shows in the past but the quality of the photography is clearly growing. That’s likely because the main purpose of the PDPC is to take members’ common interest in digital photography and offer ways for them to improve their skills. “It’s a philosophy of learning and information sharing,” Hayes said of the g roup. Meetings offer a guest speaker, such as a professional photojournalist discussing their trade or an industry representative presenting a new piece of equipment, or a club member to talk technique, as well as club photography outings. Members can also present some of their images for comment by the rest of the group but, unlike other clubs, the PDPC isn’t structured on a marks or evaluation basis. “Everyone shares information and helps everyone out, so it’s a nice atmosphere,” Hayes said. That sense of contributing to the greater good extends to the PDPC’s role in the community; together with the TriCity Photography Club, they donated a 12-foot powered projection screen to Port Moody secondary for use in their drama room in return for the meeting space. • Photomotion 2010 is on Nov. 13 at the Port Moody Inlet Theatre, with shows at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, available by calling Bea at 604-581-8177 or Elfi at 604-929-7860.

Canales, Fox maul Mouat Ravens’ standout pivot shines in QB showdown By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Binoculars were hardly needed Friday to see clearly who’s the current No. 1 high school football squad in the province. Also easy to spot was who’s the No. 1 quarterback sporting the given name Cam. Fox QB Cam Canales led the charge in an all-out, allaround Grade ‘A’ performance by the Ravens, who handcuffed W.J. Mouat’s pass-happy QB Cam Bedore and the rest of Abbotsford’s Hawks 36-6 in a B.C. AAA senior league clash at Percy Perry Stadium. Billed as a heavyweight tilt featuring the No. 1-ranked Hawks and the No. 2 Ravens –– and, in a sublime subplot, Canales versus Bedore –– the game belonged to the hosts wire to wire and boosted them to 5-0 in Eastern Conference action heading into playoffs. Mouat dipped to 4-1. After a scoreless first quarter in which Fox controlled the play clock but failed to score, the Ravens bolted to a 16-0 lead in the second and, apart from Bedore connecting on a 48-yard scoring toss to cut the gap to 16-6 before halftime, the Hawks were simply unable to keep pace with Canales and company. Canales rushed for 93 yards and two touchdowns, and threw for 193 and another pair of majors, as Fox’s offence finished with staggering 466 total yards against last year’s provincial finalists. Along with his running and throwing exploits, Canales proved triple trouble for the

IN QUOTES

“It was an outstanding game by Cam. He showed leadership, composure and execution.” Fox co-coach Tom Kudaba Hawks, having intercepted a Bedore pass from his DB spot –– one of three Fox picks in the game –– and racing 60 yards to the Mouat one-yard stripe before plunging into the end zone on the Ravens’ ensuing offensive play to make the score 30-6 to bury the Hawks. “It was an outstanding game by Cam,” raved Ravens co-head coach Tom Kudaba. “He showed leadership, composure and execution.” Mouat head coach Denis Kelly said miscues by his Hawks only helped contribute to the grand game by Canales, who even overshadowed the 133-yard rushing effort of his teammate and top tailback, Jacob Patko. “He’s good, but we didn’t tackle him,” Kelly groused. “We made him look even better by not fundamentally doing our jobs. Full marks to them [Ravens]. They played a lot more physical than we did and they took advantage of our mistakes.” Canales humbly deflected praise to the entire Fox unit. “The team played well. We played like 11 brothers,” he said. see ‘D’ BIG, page 38

Cents rush to win By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Centennial Centaurs rolled into the B.C. AAA senior high school football playoffs Friday by literally running over the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers. The Cents chewed up 485 rushing yards –– with gifted Grade 11 tailback Jason Buren accounting for 271 of those –– as the Coquitlam boys crushed the Cloverdale crew 48-13 at Percy Perry Stadium. The reigning provincial-champion Cents, who finished 2-3 in Eastern Conference play, now face the 4-2 Mt. Douglas Rams on Saturday at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium (12:30 p.m.) in the first of four wild-card playoff contests that day on the Point Grey campus. “There’s still room for improvement,” insisted Centaurs head coach Ryk Piche. “We took seven penalties and I’d like to cut that number in half... if we improve, we could be a darkhorse.

We’re in the tournament, as the saying goes, and anything can happen.” To beat Mt. Doug, the Cents must shut down the Rams’ star running back Terrell Davis, who averaged 115 yards per game in Western Conference play and racked up eight touchdowns. “He’s very good, we know we have to contain him,” Piche said. Against Tweedsmuir, Cents quarterback Bobby Pospischil scampered for 107 yards on four carries and a touchdown, and also connected with Cole Milton on a 43-yards scoring strike. But it was Buren who constantly put the Cents in scoring position, blasting for four 40-plus yard gains on way to his massive 271 total and a major on a mere 15 carries. Monstrous 245-pound fullback Lucas Naso help pave the way for Buren and added 47 rushing yards and a touchdown on seven carries. Senior running back Johnny Kalambay had the Cents’ other major.

Eventual all-star Mallory Sall of the host Rapids goes up for a block against the Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils’ Brittany Aldridge during Friday’s action in the 10th annual Riverside Red Serge Classic senior girls high school volleyball tournament in PoCo.

Rapids ‘Serge’ to 2nd place By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Riverside Rapids washed aside some huge obstacles last weekend and, in the process, pushed the rock-solid Handsworth Royals to the brink. Only the Royals –– ranked No. 1 in the most-recent B.C. AAAA senior girls high school volleyball poll –– managed to dam the torrid Rapids in time for a 25-14, 17-25, 15-7 victory in Saturday’s final of the 10-team, 10th annual Riverside RCMP Red Serge Classic tournament in Port Coquitlam. Previously, the No. 5 Rapids defeated the No. 3 Kelowna Owls (23-25, 25-12, 15-12), the No. 2 Penticton Lakettes (25-11, 25-16) and, in the semifinals, the No. 4 Earl Marriott Mariners of South Surrey (25-16, 25-23).

“The girls played great the entire weekend,” gushed Rapids head coach Bryan Gee. “They were inspired to play their best and compete with the top teams. [They] dealt with adversity and played as one solid unit the entire weekend. “It was great to see them play with such a fighting spirit.” Riverside’s Tyler Turnbull and Mallory Sall were selected to the six-player tournament all-star team. Handsworth’s Emily Oxland was chosen tourney MVP. Earl Marriott bounced back from their loss to Riverside in the semis to sweep Kelowna 25-15, 25-20 in the third-place showdown. Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils and the Terry Fox Ravens also competed in the event, with both going winless in their respective five-team pools.

There’s nothing like home sweet home to prospectively quell the bitter taste the Coquitlam Express have had to swallow the last month. T h e B . C . H o cke y League Express lost for the eighth straight time Saturday, a 5-4 overtime loss to the Silverbacks in Salmon Arm. The previous night, the Express were blitzed 8-2 by the Westside Warriors in the Kelowna area. T h e results left the Express with an 8-9-0-4 record and tied for sixth with the Nanaimo Clippers in the eight-team Coastal Conference. I r o n i c a l l y, t h e Express host Nanaimo tonight (Wednesday) at the Sports Centre, 7 p.m., to open a threegame home-stand that includes playing the Langley Chiefs on Friday, 7 p.m., and the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Sunday in a special 2 p.m. matinee start. In the Express’s eight straight losses, three have come in overtime . “ I n ove r t i m e [ i n Salmon Arm] it was the same old story... giving up far too many chances,� Express assistant coach Grant Kerr wrote on the team’s website about a game in which Coquitlam was out-shot 44-30. “The team must tighten up defensively and get [our] goals against average down to three or less per game.�

“Our defence played the best game I’ve ever seen them play.� Kudaba concurred that the Ravens’ ability to force the highpowered Hawks’ offence into a total of seven turnovers, including four on downs, was key to the lopsided win. “On defence, the kids implemented the game plan to perfection,� Kudaba said. “I’m really proud of them.� Along with Canales, Jake Nylund and Matt Jeffers also nabbed interceptions for the Fox ‘D’, which was spurred by Ben Sharpe’s six solo tackles.

Four WHL grads net school $ Four Tri-City products each received one of the 275 scholarships awarded to Wester n Hockey League graduates this year, it was announced Thursday. Brandon Campos (Everett Silvertips) of Port Coquitlam and C o q u i t l a m ’s J a s o n Lynch (Spokane Chiefs) received funding to the University of B.C., while PoCo’s Colby Kulhanek (Chilliwack Bruins) did likewise to Simon Fraser University. A l s o, M at t R i l e y (Kamloops Blazers) of Coquitlam is attending Douglas College courtesy of ‘The Dub.’ For every season a player toils in major junior, he receives a fullyear guaranteed WHL scholarship, including tuition, textbooks and compulsory fees, to a post-secondary institution of their choice.

MOBILIO MAGIC

Coquitlam’s Melissa Mobilio of the Trinity Western Spartans women’s soccer team had been selected a firstt e a m Canada W e s t MOBILIO university all-star, it was announced Friday. The midfielder from Archbishop Car ney high school responded with a goal Saturday but her Langley-based Spartans were edged 3-2 after an overtime shootout to the Fraser Valley Cascades in the Canada West semifinals in Edmonton, thus ending their quest for a third straight CIS national championship. Also, Por t Moody striker Janine Frazao of the UBC Thunderbirds w a s ch o s e n t o t h e Canada West’s second all-star unit. • Coquitlam’s Carlo Basso bang ed in a goal in the 73rd minute to help the Simon Fraser Clan dump the St. Mar tin’s Saints of Lacey, Wash. 2-0 Saturday to clinch the Great Northwest Athletic Conference crown in their first season toiling in the NCAA Div. 2 ranks.

Black Cats squash Squamish, halt three-game skid The best medicine for a sickly, deflated hockey team is one big blowout. Just ask the Port Moody Black Panthers. The Cats exploded for four straight first-period goals on way to a 7-2 parade past the Wolf Pack on Saturday in Squamish. The Pacific International Jr. ‘B’ hockey league win snapped the Cats’ three-game losing slide, in which

they were out-scored by a 22-11 aggregate, and pushed them to 6-8-4 and into third spot among five teams in the ever-tight Harold Brittain Conference. Despite the Wolf Pack owning a league-worst 3-13-3 mark, the lopsided win was just what the doctor ordered for his team, said Black Panthers GM Ron Luniw.

“We got a solid effort from top to bottom,” Luniw crowed. “We dominated... totally out-played them.” Richard Moul and Joel Hamilton each scored twice for the victors, who got singles from Carson Spooner, Vitalik Morozov and Tyler Basham. Goalie Nicholas Taylor, recently acquired in a trade with the Abbotsford Pilots,

was sharp in his debut with the Cats, blocking 35 shots –– 19 in the second frame alone. Mico Dragutinovic –– first cousin to Milan Lucic of the NHL Boston Bruins –– scored one of the Wolf Pack goals after being traded last week by PoMo for exNorth Delta Devil Trevor Kang.

Mackenzie, Dorothy, April 22, 1922 - November 1, 2010. Born in Port Coquitlam, and spent her life living on the Pitt River. She passed away suddenly and peacefully at home. Dorothy will always be remembered by her husband, Ken and her children, Linda, Tim (Rosie), grandchildren Shonia (Steve), Curtis (Sheri), Shane (Jen), John (Diandra), Kenny and great-grandchildren Payge, Maiya, Colby, Brett, Brooke, Cole, Oaklyn, friends Tammy and Dustin and many others. Dorothy was in many ways like a mother and grandmother to many of the crew at Harken Towing with most people knowing her just simply as ``Nan``. Dorothy has been a vital part of Harken Towing since she and Ken launched their first boat in 1948. You could find her in the kitchen dispatching the tugs and when need be she was on the boat as the deckhand. Dorothy loved nothing more than taking her friends or anyone who was willing down the river on her pride and joy the Viking King. She loved being on the water and showing people the water side of life. She enjoyed Maui, charity dinners, watching her grandsons and great grandchildren play sports and tried to make people’s lives a bit better in everything she did. Dorothy will be greatly missed by her family and her crew at Harken Towing but she will live on in our hearts and memories forever. A reflection of her life will be held at Swan-e-Set Bay Resort & Country Club, 16651 Rannie Road, Pitt Meadows (near her beloved river) at 11:00 a.m. Monday, November 15, 2010. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Port Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association.

OBITUARIES

CARL WALL Dec. 24, 1929 - Nov. 3, 2010 After a brief but valiant battle with cancer, Carl passed away peacefully on the morning of November 3, 2010, surrounded by the love and support of his family and friends. Carl was born on December 24, 1929 in Osler, SK, to parents John and Agatha. He grew up in Big River, SK, and spent his early adult years working in the mining industry while attending Nipawin Bible Institute. He also served with the Engineers in the Militia at Jericho Beach in the late 1950’s. From the 1960’s to the 1990’s, Carl and Alice raised their family in Port Coquitlam, BC. He worked initially for Johnson Terminals in Vancouver, then after 17 loyal years of working for the City of Port Coquitlam, Carl retired as Public Works Foreman in 1991. He and Alice then moved to Salmon Arm, in 1992. Carl was a faithfully dedicated husband and father, and is survived by his wife of 54 years, Alice, his children, Kevin (Suzanne), Kurt (Jennifer), Todd, Leanne (Alison), Kathy (Simon), grandchildren, Lisa (Jason), Sarah (Gabe), Brad (Brittney), Amy (Chris), Rachel (Trevor), and great grandchildren, Kaylyn, Niyla, Lincoln, Isaak, Alia, Beckett, and is also survived by siblings, Peter (Lousie), Albert (Cathy), Elmer, Joe (Fern), Susie, Helen (Henry), Margaret, Edna (Gerry), and pre-deceased by Pauline. Dad was very supportive of all of his children’s sports and activities. From hockey to softball, he was our biggest fan. There was never a tournament too far away. And he loved being with his grandchildren and great grandchildren, they touched his heart and always made him laugh. Carl was very giving of his time and will be remembered for his many contributions within the church and community. He volunteered tirelessly at Sunnybrae Bible Camp, helped renovate and maintain churches and facilities throughout the community. He volunteered for the local RCMP Citizens Patrol, was an upstanding member of the Conservative Party, and the Gideons. You will be deeply missed Dad. We are very proud of you. You have touched the lives of so many through your kindness, generosity, and tireless efforts to support others. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Gideon’s would be appreciated @ www.gideons.ca or 1-888-482-4253. A memorial service was held on Saturday, November 6, 2010 at 2:00 pm at The First Baptist Church in Salmon Arm, BC, 3151 6th Avenue NE, V1E 1J2, Ph: 250.832.4004. Reception followed. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129, Email condolences and share memories at www.fischersfuneralservices.com.
