Time to party – safely CounterAttack has kicked off, so plan to not drink & drive By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

With holiday party season kicking into high gear, police will be waiting at roadblocks around the province as part of the CounterAttack campaign. Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said local Mounties will be doing extra enforcement on all major roadways and using strategic tools to target resources in areas with the most alcohol-related crashes resulting in deaths or serious injuries. In 2010, Chung said, 64 people were injured in alcoholrelated crashes in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam but so far this year, there have been at least two fatalities. see TRANSIT TRANSIT,, page A3

Where’s FHA plan? Plan is still under wraps eight months into the fiscal year By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

The year is almost over but Fraser Health has yet to release its 2011 service plan detailing its priorities and spending — information critics say is needed to scrutinize the authority’s $2.5-billion budget and hold its appointed board to account.

Service plans previously were released in early fall, already months late for a fiscal year that begins April 1. But this year, all B.C. health authority service plans remain stuck in Victoria, where provincial government officials say more work continues to finalize them. “The ministry has been busy working with health authorities to ensure the information and the data is accurate,” a ministry spokesperson said. “This work is important because these plans lay out a complex,

three-year operational plan.” He said the reports should be released within a few weeks. NDP leader Adrian Dix called the delay ridiculous and said it reflects a continuing government effort to hide the details of health spending and planning. “Only a Liberal government would consider it good practice to release a plan for a year starting April 1 after Dec. 1,” Dix said. see DIX: ‘STRIPPED’, STRIPPED , page A4

No appeal, no good: judge Judge rules drivers found over .08 should be able to challenge roadside police decisions

Smile, you’re on red light cameras

By Tom Fletcher

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

By Gary McKenna

BLACK PRESS

VICTORIA – Police in B.C. won’t be imposing their toughest roadside penalties for impaired driving until they give accused drivers a way to appeal results of a failed breath test. Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond announced the change Wednesday after a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled that the most severe of B.C.’s new impaired driving penalties infringe on people’s constitutional right to a fair trial. Ruling on a challenge to the new roadside penalties, Justice Jon Sigurdson said the increased roadside penalties for blowing in the “warn” range of blood alcohol, from 0.05 to 0.08, are permissible. But drivers who blow in the “fail” range — above 0.08 — should have a chance to challenge the decision if their vehicles are impounded for 30 days and they face thousands of dollars in administrative penalties. Bond said the court ruling means the B.C. government needs to amend its year-old impaired driving law to give drivers who exceed 0.08 on the roadside screening device a chance to appeal that reading. Until that is done, “the circumstances for those in the ‘fail’ range will revert to what was previously in place,” Bond said. “Police will have the option of determining whether or not a criminal charge is warranted and, in that case, you could face criminal charges

The province will look at its drunk driving laws after a Supreme Court judge found fault with those affecting drivers found in the “fail” range, saying penalties infringe on constitutional rights to a fair trial. and a 90-day administrative driving prohibition.” A blood alcohol reading in the “warn” range can result in a three-day driving ban, a $200 administrative penalty and another $250 fee to have a driver’s licence reinstated. Drivers may also have their car impounded for three days and be billed for towing and storage. For roadside readings of 0.08 or higher, police have been imposing a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impounding the vehicle for 30 days. That suspension can cost a driver $3,750, including $700 for towing and storage and $1,420 to take a mandatory

“responsible driver” course. Sigurdson did not immediately strike down the new penalties but asked for submissions from the province and the driver who challenged the penalties to determine what comes next. Last week, Bond and Premier Christy Clark celebrated the results of the new roadside penalties, a 40% decline in alcohol-related deaths in the first year. The court ruling came as B.C. launches its annual Christmas CounterAttack campaign, with increased roadblocks across the province to look for impaired drivers. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Transit & designated drivers can help continued from front page

“If you’ve been drinking. use transit, take a taxi, ask a friend, stay home or use Operation Red Nose,” Chung said. This year, the Counter-Attack campaign, sponsored by police, the provincial government and ICBC, is asking people to plan ahead — and step up when it comes to choosing a designated driver. “There are so many alternatives” to driv-

ing drunk, said Jon Schubert, ICBC’s president and CEO, in a release. “Set an example — take your turn to be the designated driver.” Volunteering to be a safe ride home can have a significant influence on others, he added. Road checks will be taking place in B.C. throughout December in an effort to reduce impaired driving crashes. On average, 127 people die in impaired driving-related crashes each year in B.C.

“Celebrating with family and friends is an important part of the holidays,” Shirley Bond, minister of public safety and solicitor general, said in a press release. “Getting home safely should be part of everyone’s holiday planning.”

Motorists driving through the TriCities may want to think twice before running a red light. The provincial government and ICBC announced last week that the Intersection Safety Camera program has expanded to include 140 sites, 10 of which are located in this area. The cameras are designed to detect and photograph vehicles running red lights, before sending a $167 fine to the registered owner of the car. ICBC director Fiona Temple said the program will help reduce the more than 230 crashes that occur daily throughout the province and reduce the casualty crashes at sites by 6%. The sites were chosen based on statistics of B.C.’s most crash- and casualty-prone intersections. Collision types, severity and frequency were all considered, as was the potential for eliminating t-bone and head-on crashes. Signs are prominently posted at all intersections where cameras are in place. The cameras located in the TriCities can be found at 10 intersections:

Higher cost for cops in Port Moody Dix: ‘stripped’ By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

T he cost of Por t Moody’s “no call too small� police department is going up. The city’s finance committee will be considering a 2012 operating budget for PMPD that is 4.48% higher than this year’s. The budget, which has yet to be reviewed by the finance committee, stands at just over $8.5 million — an in-

crease of about $365,000 over 2011. PMPD’s operating budget has gone up by nearly $1 million since 2010. Major cost drivers include: • contractual increases of $412,627; • $11,000 to replace body armour; • a $6,699 for increased BC Hydro costs; • and a $4,990 increase in payments to the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team. PMPD is hiring one

new officer for 2012 at a cost of $71,900 but that cost will be mitigated by seconding a member earning $102,700 to an integrated regional team, for a net saving of $30,800. Further savings were found by shifting from leasing to purchasing IT, shaving $26,450 from the budget and cutting $7,224 for supplies. New projects budgeted for the 2012 capital budget including adding $129,886 to the items approved in previous

years, bringing the total to $354,560. The new items include $50,150 to replace the five-year-old server used for building security and nearly $34,000 to clean and finish partition walls in the public safety building’s crawl space. Another $22,000 will go to crowd-control equipment, prompted by the minor injuries suffered by two PMPD members who were assisting the Vancouver Police Department after

the Stanley Cup riot. “Given the large gatherings that can become problematic within the city of Vancouver and the subsequent controlling of such crowds, PMPD members who provide temporary assistance must be properly protected,� the report states. “Most, if not all, police agencies within Metro Vancouver are in the process of purchasing protective equipment.� spayne@tricitynews.com

continued from front page

Service plans were originally created on a promise to bring “transparency, openness and accountability� to health planning. But Dix said, “They’ve stripped the service plans in previous years of many of their indicators and now they can’t even get those out on time.� Health authority service plans originally had 77 performance indicators to measure patient care, hospital wait times and other objectives. But many of the ones that turned up bad results were quietly dropped. By 2010, just eight performance measures remained, although the province said the changes were just to standardize reporting. jnagel@blackpress.ca

“This allows them just to be a kid again. I think that is the most important thing. They have kind of lost that a bit. My kids have struggled with it and I think Christmas might be a good jump-start for them to get back into things.�

Reaveley works in wife’s memory

By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Dan Reaveley has experienced the struggles young children face when they lose a parent. His four kids were left without a mother and he without a wife after Charlene Reaveley was killed in a hit-and-run accident earlier this year in Coquitlam. But while his family is still struggling with the loss, Reaveley is hoping to turn their grief into something positive and help others this holiday season. With help from the C h a rl e n e Re ave l e y C h i l d re n’s C h a r i t y Society, which he helped launch earlier this year, Reaveley and several supporters are holding a toy drive in the Tri-Cities to help young children dealing with the loss of a parent. “This allows them just to be a kid again,â€? he said. “I think that is the most important thing. They have kind of lost that a bit. My kids have struggled with it and I think Christmas might be a good jump-start for them to get back into things.â€? He said Charlene loved Christmas and he hopes the toy drive will become an annual event and help keep her memory alive. Coquitlam Canadian Tire owner Paul Droulis has placed toy boxes at the retailer’s Tri-City locations (1200 Sequin Ave., Coquitlam and at the Port Coquitlam store owned by Ingmar Wilkens at 2125 Hawkins St.) and Reaveley has set up a box where he works at Maple Ridge Chrysler (11911 West St., Maple Ridge). Donors can drop off new unwrapped toys for kids up to 12 years of age at those locations during business hours through Dec. 21. Reaveley said on Dec. 23, Santa Claus and an elf will deliver the toys to the doors of children who have lost a parent in the last couple of years. “It will be for kids who have lost a parent,â€? he said. “But if there is a surplus of toys, we will take them over to B.C. Children’s Hospital. There are lots of different places we can bring them.â€? • For more information about the toy drive or the Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity Society, go to www.crccs.ca. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Tri-City MPs middle of pack for expenses By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Tri-City Members of Parliament spent slightly below the average for travel and office expenses compared to their B.C. colleagues last fiscal year, according to recently released documents. According to the House of Commons’ Board of Internal Economy, New Westminster-Coquitlam NDP MP Fin Donnelly spent $455,545 on travel and office expenses while Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam Conservative MP James Moore spent $478,224. The numbers are consistent with those of most MPs in B.C., who are usually saddled with higher travel costs due to the distance between their home province and Ottawa. Most west coast MPs spent between $450,000 and $550,000, for an average of $491,097, putting the Tri-City representatives just below the middle of the pack for the fiscal year between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. Moore spent $123,287 on designated travel and $22,187 on accommodations and per diem expenses. Employees’ salaries and service contracts to staff his constituency office cost $172,271 while the lease on the building, office supplies, equipment and telecommunication services totalled just over $68,000. Moore’s office also spent more than

$57,000 on printing costs for flyers and mail-outs. Moore said mail is a key part of the services his office provides. In addition to his newsletter four times a year, “we do a lot of mailing from the constituency ofFIN DONNELLY fice and we send a lot of forms and information — passport applications, grant applications — and the main way people get information from me is through mail-outs,” he said. Meanwhile, Donnelly spent JAMES MOORE $111,654 on travel and $18,537 on accommodations and per diem expenses. Employees’ salaries and service contracts to staff his Austin Avenue constituency office cost more than $213,017 while the lease and office expenses totalled close to $50,000. Donnelly also spent more than $25,000 on printing costs for his flyers and mail-outs to constituents. Donnelly didn’t return a call for comment before The Tri-City News’ print deadline. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Q WHAT WE THINK:

C

ycling could become more common in Coquitlam if the city follows through on a proposal to increase bike parking at shops, homes and industrial parks. An idea vetted by Coquitlam council this week would require 1.25 bike parking spaces for every multi-family unit while larger format buildings would need three for every 1,000 sq. m of floor area. Civic buildings, schools and institutions would have to have somewhere for cyclists to lock up, too. While some people might think it’s impossible to turn the suburbs into cycling nirvana, others believe making it easier to get around on two wheels will change our car-dominated culture. And while bike parking is less costly and takes up less space than typical parking for mini-vans and SUVs, government efforts can’t stop there because installing a couple of racks isn’t going to get people out of their cars unless cycling routes are safe.

There’s only one way to solve child poverty: together AS I SEE IT Martin Wyant

T

he 2011 Child Poverty Report Card was released recently and the information was, once again, sobering. According to the report, B.C.’s child poverty rate rose from 14.5% to 15.4% in 2009. Our provincial child poverty rate is the second highest in Canada; only Manitoba, with a rate of 16.8%, performed worse. This is not the type of distinction that we should be proud of, and we’re not. But we have struggled with this challenge for many years. As an organization that has been dealing with issues related to poverty for the last 40 years, Share is keenly aware of the many faces of poverty that we have seen in the children and families we serve. There is no one “group” or “type of person” that personifies poverty, just as there is no single “cause.” The issues surrounding poverty are complex; as a result, there is no single solution that we can embrace. If there were, we would have embraced it already.

Stories about poverty — especially child poverty — often lead to polarized responses that are either politically motivated or based on stereotypes. This is a topic we are not always comfortable discussing or acknowledging. If we are serious about addressing the problem, then we all need to resist the urge to blame those people with whom we do not agree because of their political affiliation, country of origin, religious beliefs or other issues that focus on how they are different from us. We need to find a way to find common ground rather than focusing energy and attention on what makes us different. Most importantly, we need to stop blaming the poor for being poor. I don’t know of many people who are happy about being poor. Some would have us believe that the issue of child poverty is something the government could fix if it simply put the necessary financial resources in place so people could live above the poverty line. There is no doubt that all levels of government need to play a role if we are to successfully eradicate child poverty in British Columbia. If we are serious about dealing with this issue, though, we need to focus on it at the

local and regional levels. The effects of child poverty are seen, heard and felt in our neighbourhoods, on our streets, in our schools and in our workplaces. If we demonstrate that we are serious about dealing with child poverty at the local level, if we can show commitment publicly — and when no one is looking — then we will bring senior levels of government with us. We can choose to act, to lead or we can wait for “someone” to deal with the problem. Share remains extremely grateful for the gifts of food and funds we receive from caring individuals, businesses and organizations from across the Tri-Cities and for the thousands of hours of volunteer support that help us gather and distribute food to the vulnerable children and families we serve. While we are proud to serve those who need our help, we would like to begin building a TriCities community that no longer requires our food banks. We cannot do this work alone. This is heavy lifting that will require ingenuity, planning, financial resources, persuasion, relentless focus, passion and commitment. We are inviting leaders from our business community, from all levels of government, from

organized labour, from all walks of life to work with us to uproot child poverty in the Tri-Cities. We want to solve the problem, not manage the symptoms. We want to have a respectful dialogue that looks at solutions from all sources and angles, including different political viewpoints. Early in the new year, we will be announcing an initiative to help bring us together to start solving the issue of child poverty. If you are interested in hearing more or becoming involved in developing solutions, then please send me a note (email address is below) with your name, phone number and email address and I will contact you in January. In the meantime, please consider making a positive difference in the lives of poor children and families in the Tri-Cities. Whether you decide to volunteer, make a donation to a local charity or simply welcome those newcomers to your neighbourhood, acts of kindness and welcoming have a magical way of transforming children, families, neighbourhoods and communities. Let’s act. Let’s lead. Let’s solve this problem — together. Martin Wyant is CEO of Share Family and Community Services. martin.wyant@sharesociety.ca

FACE TO FACE: Should drinking-and-driving rules be made even tougher?

Zero tolerance would save lives O

ver a year ago, the BC Liberal government introduced new drunk driving laws that, at the time, were the toughest in the country. Under the new rules, drivers with a bloodalcohol level of between 0.05 and 0.08 — the so-called “warn” range — face an immediate three-day driving ban. Since the laws were introduced in September 2010, the number of drunk-driving deaths in our province dropped 40%, with an estimated 45 lives saved. Now, it’s time for B.C. to be a trailblazer once again and introduce the first universal zerotolerance laws in Canada. In other words, if you drink any alcohol at all, you don’t drive. Most European nations carry a standard of .05 or lower and a few countries, including the Czech Republic, have zero-tolerance policies. In the Czech Republic, the results have been dramatic. According to the World Health Organization, the proportion of road traffic deaths attributable to alcohol in that country is pegged at 3.4%. By comparison, in British Columbia, 17.2% of traffic fatalities in 2011 were alcohol-related. If we had the same proportion of

ANDY RADIA

alcohol-related road traffic deaths as the Czech Republic, we could save an additional 27 lives each year. Even if a zero-tolerance policy saves only one life, isn’t it worth it? Certainly, the food service industry would challenge a zero-tolerance measure. But many in the restaurant and bar industry have rebounded from the last change in the law and would do so with a zero-tolerance law — it might just require some innovation. For instance, a bar in Kamloops now offers safe rides home in customers’ vehicles much like Operation Red Nose, the volunteerdriven fundraiser. Another restaurant has started a shuttle-bus service that takes home between 100 and 150 intoxicated patrons every Saturday night. Businesses will find ways to adjust. The public focus should be on saving lives. The research is clear: Any amount of alcohol affects judgment and reaction time. The effect is minuscule at small amounts but who’s to say where to draw the line? A millisecond of inattention, of delayed reaction, could result in injury or even death. The answer is simple.

What’s your take on this week’s Face to Face topic and what they have to say? Email your thoughts to newsroom@tricitynews.com.

ost of us already have zero tolerance for drunk driving — but how do we best reduce its occurrence? Although it pains me, I must admit the recent BC Liberal impaired driving legislation makes sense. Maximum allowable blood alcohol levels are now .05. With simplified roadside suspensions, stiffer driving prohibitions and increased road checks, we have enough legislative clout to castigate impaired drivers. The old .08 threshold was nebulous; two drinks and then one per hour after that? What if I’m a bit bigger or smaller? What if I have a particularly efficient liver? What if I quit drinking two hours before I drive or drink black coffee? The old threshold allowed for rationalization. The new .05 threshold, is clear: One glass of wine with dinner or one beer at the hockey game — that’s it. Or, in order to be sure, nothing at all to drink. It’s clear, it’s enough. It covers the driver whose wife went into labour after he had a glass of wine or the woman from Port Moody who had a beer at the Canucks game. But why not go all the way to legislated zero tolerance, making any level of blood alcohol unacceptable when driving a car?

Zero tolerance doesn’t stop people from doing things. It doesn’t stop bullying. Capital punishment doesn’t lower murder rates. Zero tolerance is just a way to express indignation. It doesn’t increase deterrence or add clarity, as my hang’em-high colleague might argue. Legislation can’t and shouldn’t replace the professional judgment of police, prosecutors and judges who will continue to make discretionary decisions based on circumstance. Rather than concentrating on escalating punishments, how about working to give prospective impaired drivers more options? What if our transit system ran until restaurants and bars closed? What if we were allowed to park at Lougheed Town Centre after hours and until 9 a.m. the next day rather than being ticketed or towed when trying to use SkyTrain for an outing? What if taxis were available and would actually venture to the Tri-Cities hinterland? What if MADD’s next goal was to work to expand SkyTrain and transit services? Zero-tolerance legislation won’t further reduce drunk driving and recent new laws have added sufficient enforcement clout. Now, let’s focus on finding solutions that go beyond expressing outrage.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS CBC should look to PBS

The Editor, Re. “Should Canadian taxpayers continue to help fund CBC?” (Face to Face, The Tri-City News, Nov. 18). I’ve been following news on the future of CBC for years, and I’m keen to read anything on the seemingly endless process of resolving CBC’s future. Each Face to Face columnist’s piece was well researched, with a caveat on Jim Nelson’s offering. Mr. Nelson’s reliance on

half-century-old CBC successes as justification to continue funding the broadcaster is entirely irrelevant in 2011. Even the iconic Hockey Night In Canada a has lost much of its lustre to numerous channels dedicated to sport only. I would have found Mr. Nelson’s point even more convincing had he included some contemporary examples rather than those that began airing before most of to-

day’s viewers were born. Last, I’m surprised neither Mr. Nelson nor Andy Radia noted the enormous cost of running CBC compared to that of PBS in the U.S., funded in part by generous donations, public and private. On the west coast, it is notable the PBS station in Seattle receives fully one third of its donations from Canadians and far exceeds the number contributing to any Canadian broadcaster

Snail mail pricey in Canada The Editor, I ask myself why it costs so much for Canadians to send snail mail — yep, some of us still do that. I went to Bellingham and picked up all my stamps for overseas and within the U.S. for much lower prices.

coast to coast. Surely this fact alone would seem to indicate the CBC as a preferred source of education and entertainment may not be as valuable an asset as the CBC itself claims. It is difficult for me to believe in our present digital age that the CRTC forces our broadcasters to provide programming that in some (not all) cases is abysmal. Gordon McGregor, Port Coquitlam

For those of you who send Christmas cards or even letters to the U.K. or other international destinations, did you know that it costs you $1.75 plus HST ($1.96 total) per item from Canada? It costs 98 cents from the U.S. for international mailing, 44 cents

within the States. (And did you know that if you spend $5 or more on international stamps in Canada, there is no HST?) Sadly, stamps are another good reason to shop south of the border. S. Mullen, Port Coquitlam

Michael Thomas Buttt died on November 29th, 2011 at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC. Michael had demonstrated incredible strength and willpower over the course of many years as he fought kidney failure, Wegener’s Granulomatosis, as well as a long list of other illnesses. His struggles came to an end as he passed away peacefully with family by his side. Born in Kingston, Ontario in 1951, Michael lived 60 years as a man of true honor. Faithful to life’s values and kind to all, he has inspired many people on his journey through life. His sense of humour and ability to stay positive in even the most challenging times is what will be remembered most. Predeceased by his father Douglas and brother Gordon, Michael leaves behind his daughters Karen (David), Colleen (Brian), and Christine, granddaughters Keira, Christina, Madison and Mackenzie, mother Gladys and brothers Doug (Kelly) and Don (Gilda). A service will be held in Michael’s honour at the Nanaimo Golf Club on Tuesday, December 6th at 2:30. In lieu of Áowers, donations can be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

Jingle Bell Jog raises funds, food and fun this holiday By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Joggers young and old will be running through the streets of Coquitlam Sunday to raise funds and collect food and toys for needy families this holiday season. And you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mistake them for regular Sunday joggers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they will be wearing Santa hats, felt antlers and some will even be sporting red, blinking Rudolph noses. The first annual Jingle Bell Jog takes place Dec. 4, starting at Coquitlam Centre outside Zellers, and organizer Lorraine Davidson says people of all ages are welcome to join. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea is to have some fun but also to help families,â&#x20AC;? explained Davidson. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event is sure to be a hit with the little ones; not only do the youngsters get a T-shirt and a pair of reindeer antlers but they only have to jog a 1-km route. The adult run is 5 km from the mall to Lafarge Lake and back, so just about anyone can take part and will get a T-shirt and a Santa hat for their troubles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance for families to do something physical before the holiday season begins,â&#x20AC;?

Davidson said. The Coquitlam mom has had a lot of experience organizing races. She works for Race Headquarters, a Coquitlam business that does timing and results for races, and she has also organized runs on her own. She thought the Tri-Cities needed a winter run and wanted to give a boost to Share, as well. She teamed up with sponsors Coquitlam Centre and Runnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Den, then started getting the word out. Registration costs $35 for adults (18 and older) and $30 for children and youth who do the 5-km jog; and for the 1-km, $25 for adults and $20 for children and youth. Fees include a technical T-shirt and a Santa hat for adults and a non-technical T-shirt and antlers for children and youth. Runners are encouraged to bring a food or toy donation to fill two Honda

cars. Santa will also be there, as will Coquitlam Mounties and firefighters, and participants can enjoy refreshments, music and prizes. Sign-up takes place Saturday at the Coquitlam Centre community booth from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. or on race day before 8:30 a.m. The adult run begins at 9 a.m. To volunteer, contact Davidson at 778-8478463 or lorraine@raceheadquarters.com.

Helen Korbely and Lorraine Davidson with Sabastian, 4, and Savannah Korbely, 2, and Samantha Davidson, 11, get in shape for the first annual Jingle Bell Jog taking place this Sunday, Dec. 4, with proceeds to benefit Share Family and Community Services. DIANE STRANDBERG THE TRI-CITY NEWS

B.C. reaches deal with RCMP By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

VICTORIA – It’s still an “agreement in principle” that requires cabinet approval but B.C. has reached a new 20year deal for RCMP services on the day a deadline was set by Ottawa. Public Safety Minister S h i rl e y B o n d s a i d Wednesday the federal government has agreed to B.C.’s key demand, a contract management committee where B.C.

and other provinces can have their say about new RCMP programs or costs. “The Union of B.C. Municipalities made it very clear that they no longer wanted to have costs passed on to them without the ability to have a say in what those costs are,” Bond said. “That is a major step forward and in my view redefines the relationship, which was certainly one of our objectives.”

Bond added that the new deal will retain the ability for B.C. to give two years’ notice and withdraw, and require a review of the terms every five years. She declined to go into further specifics until the contract is approved by the provincial cabinet. There are 150 communities in B.C. served by the RCMP, including Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, making it

Job action means no report cards School District 43 won’t be mailing out blank re port cards, as some districts are reportedly doing, but will be giving elementary and middle school students single sheets instead of several blank pages, said Superintendent Tom Grant.The sheets won’t have much information but they will be accompanied by a letter explaining how BC Teachers’ Federation job action

has affected report cards. “We are directing children and parents if they want information on assessments to go directly to the teacher,” Grant said. Some Grade 12 students may have already received their marks from teachers in oral or written format, Grant said, and students can get help from counsellors or the office with postsecondary school applications.

the home of one-third of all RCMP officers. That position led B.C. to become the leader of the nine provinces and territories still negotiating for a policing contract. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins promised this week that if he forms a government, he will commission an independent review of RCMP services to see if they still serve the province adequately.

Appadurai, others, take action in S.A. A Gleneagle secondary school graduate is hoping to make a difference by attending the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change this week. Anjali Appadurai of Coquitlam will be in Durban, South Africa, along with eight classmates from the College of the Atlantic who have been studying climate change politics and policy. She will be using her time in Durban to better understand the UN process and multilateral politics. “Those historically responsible for our current emissions level as well as those most affected must come to the table together and make binding commitments to slow our emissions to a level that may lessen some of the anticipated damage to people and the environment,” Appadurai said in a press release. Before attending the College of the Atlantic, located in Bar Harbor, Maine, Appadurai was a Gleneagle student who completed her international baccalaureate at the Lester B. Pearson United World College of the Pacific in Victoria. Appadurai and her fellow students have created a blog and will be posting reports from Durban at www.earthinbrackets.org.

Missing patient discharged from Riverview Hospital By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A patient who walked away from Riverview Hospital three weeks ago has been discharged by hospital staff and is no longer considered missing, according to the Coquitlam RCMP. Marc Veillette did not return to the facility on Nov. 9 after a routine evening walk and police said at the time he suffers from a mental disorder that can make him prone to violence, although a health authority official now says he’s not dangerous. But on Wednesday, Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung told The T r i - C i t y N e w s t h at Veillette was scheduled to be discharged while he was missing and hospital staff have requested police stop their search. “The hospital has considered him no longer missing,” he said. “They are saying he was supposed to be discharged anyway.” Chung said it is important to remember that Riverview is a hospital, not a jail, and it is up to doctors to determine whether someone no longer requires care. Several tips and sightings have been reported to police but Chung said there is no longer a need to follow up now that the hospital has officially discharged the 45-year-old patient. L u b n a Ekramoddoullah, the communications person for the provincial Health Services Authority, confir med Veillette was discharged while he was missing from the facility. Citing patient confidentiality, she said she could not give specific information about Veillette’s case and that it is up to physicians to decide whether to discharge a patient. She also said Veillette is no longer considered dangerous. “It would depend on whether the treatment

is working,” she said. “They would look at [the patient’s] behaviour and make that kind of assessment.” Last week Health Services Staff told The Tri-City News that during the seven-month period between April 1 and Oct. 31, 55 cases of patients who had not returned to Riverview

Hospital when expected were reported, which is an average of 7.8 cases per month. That number is slightly higher than the 12 months prior to April 1, 2011, when 80 people, or an average of 6.7 cases per month, were reported, although those numbers reflect patients who may have

simply been late returning to the facility. Lynn Cook, the site operating of ficer at Riverview Hospital, said in an email that giving patients a certain amount of autonomy at the facility is part of their re-integration process. gmckenna @tricitynews.com

Winter Reminder

www.tricitynews.com

Headquarter renos won’t impact service, says RCMP Police service will not be disrupted at the Coquitlam RCMP’s main headquarters during a sixweek renovation of the front-desk area. Crews began work at the detachment at 2986 Guildford Way earlier this week but Mounties said the front counter will still be open and staffed during normal business hours. “It’s going to be hectic and a bit noisy for the next few weeks,”

Supt. Claud Wilcott said in a press release, “but we are committed to minimizing disruptions and making sure that everyone who comes to our front desk gets top quality service.” Signs will be posted at the detachment and many services will also be offered at the community policing service window to the left of the front counter. • For more information go to www.coquitlam.rcmp.ca.

Don’t Leave Your Sprinklers Out In The Cold As temperatures drop, it’s important to protect your sprinkler systems from damage. Expanding ice from freezing will break sprinkler heads and valves, and can rupture pipes. If you have a built-in sprinkler system, please ensure that the water supply system is shut off and the system is drained prior to the onset of freezing weather. Protect outdoor hoses, faucets and pipes in your home by taking these simple precautions that can save you from frozen and ruptured pipes and costly repairs: G

Close the inside supply valve to all outdoor faucets.

G

Disconnect outside hoses and open the outdoor faucets to drain all water.

G

Leave outdoor faucets open for the duration of the cold weather season.

Sisterhood of the river in PoCo A GOOD READ Bryan Ness

HAPPY DAY

Nel Forrest is celebrating her 95th birthday Saturday, Dec. 3.

Despite different beginnings, two lifelong friends “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

T

hese words sum up the lives of Eve Forrest Gulliford and Nel Coyle Forrest, two remarkable and durable women who met and became friends, then family, during some often difficult times. Eve’s parents Samuel and Hilda Forrest came to Port Coquitlam from Annacis Island in 1916, towing their float house — along with their children — and settled near the foot of Pitt River Road. It was here Sam found work at the shipbuilding yards before they shut down after the First World War. He built his own vessel, the Harvie W, named after Eve’s younger brother, and went into the log-towing business. When Samuel died in 1935, siblings

Eve Forrest was one of the first women in B.C. to earn master mariner papers, then went to medical school, where she met Nel Coyle, who married Harvie Forrest. Eve and Harvie, still in their teens, took over the business of working the river during those tough economic times, with Eve having to quit school to do so. They managed to find an engine for their second boat, Old Faithful, and soon after, both brother and sister could be found working the river, where Eve became one of the first women in B.C. to earn her master mariner papers in 1941. Soon after, Eve decided to pursue a career in medicine, and was in her

first year pre-med at UBC when she met Nel Coyle. Nel was born in Okotoks, Alberta, where her father Frank and mother Nellie had a farm before moving to Calgary so their three daughters could go to school. Nel took advantage of her schooling opportunities over time to complete a three-year university degree in Home Economics. She was teaching in Calgary when she decided to take a break and accepted a job with the Student Christian Movement office in Vancouver at

UBC in 1943. That’s where Eve and Nel met, later to be sisters-in-law and lifelong friends. Eve’s stories about her life on the river finally convinced Nel to come out for a visit to Port Coquitlam on New Year’s Eve 1943, a fateful trip that would change her life. She met Eve’s brother Harvie, although if first impressions were important, things might have been very different. He had been working on an engine and was covered from head to toe in black grease and soot, albeit with a big grin on his face. As she recalled: “I wasn’t sure whether this was a human being or not.” Six months later, on June 26, 1944, Harvie and Nel were married in Calgary and returned to the float house on the river, where turbulent times lay ahead, includ-

ing flood, fire and financial ruin. Eve Forrest transferred to Queens University and completed her doctor’s degree in 1949. She married Campbell Gulliford, also a doctor, and the couple had five children, although the marriage did not last and Eve was left to raise her family on her own. She was a family physician in Salmon Arm for 40 years, beloved by all and very involved with the community. Eve passed away in March 1997.

The Port Coquitlam branch of G&F Financial spearheaded a drive to raise money for students at Douglas College by providing tickets to the recent Unwrapped charitable shopping night at Coquitlam Centre. Above, Douglas College’s Hazel Postma receives a cheque for $1,300 from Janine Davies, branch manager of PoCo’s G&F Financial.

Douglas College has won a national “outstanding program” award for its Uganda Project, an initiative that sends student interns to the African country to work in hospitals, libraries and aid centres. The Outstanding Program in International Education Award was given to Douglas by the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) at the CBIE’s 45th annual conference last month in Ottawa. The Canadian Bureau for International Education is a national, not-for-profit organization that promotes Canada’s international relations through international education. The award is given to an institution or program that demonstrates high-quality and highly creative programming in international education and is a model of best practice that is transferable to other institutions. The Uganda Project also includes the Uganda Endowment Fund, which awards money to social service agencies to help Ugandans become more self-sufficient.

Say goodbye to pain

Experience the beneďŹ ts of Low Intensity Laser Light Therapy Knee pain for 30 years... â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;I had suffered gradually increasing pain and instability in both knees from football injuries suffered in my twenties. They had become so aggravated that a single turn around the grocery store left me limping. I felt I was falling apart and old before my time. I desperately wanted to do a charity bicycle ride from Seattle to San Francisco. This coastal cycling trip is one I had wanted to do for over 30 years and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give up my dream. I sought out laser light therapy with Doctor Bennett and had 10 treatments on each knee. The results were nothing short of transformational. My pain was gone. I could ride for hours on end and feel no knee pain. I rode the 1000 miles to San Francisco, climbing mountains and sea capes down the coastal highway, I never experienced one day of pain and never had to â&#x20AC;&#x153;sagâ&#x20AC;? on the support van.

Enjoying (and feeding) birds of winter

COUNT ON IT ON DEC. 17

W

ith temperatures dipping low at night and the frosty weather upon us, it’s time to put up bird feeders in areas where the bears are no longer roaming. Most bears should be safely hibernating by now but there are still reports of them in the Westwood Plateau area. The colder weather means birds must eat even more to keep warm during the long nights and face the additional challenge of very limited hours of daylight to search for food. Without a doubt, winter is a demanding time of the year for our local birds. There has certainly been a transition in the birds at our backyard feeder in recent weeks. The number of juncos has increased considerably. In addition, we have several towhees and song sparrows hanging out in the shrubs in our yard. These birds spend much of their time on the ground searching through leaf litter for food but they have quickly discovered the sweet spot underneath our bird feeder. While smaller birds like chickadees are tidy eaters, Steller’s jays tend to be sloppier and spill seeds as they eat, which can create a temporary bounty of sunflower seeds on the ground below. As long as it is ground-feeding birds eating any spilled seeds, I am happy. But too many seeds on the ground can attract unwanted animals such as rats. Thus, it’s a good idea to keep areas under feeders clean and bring in any feeders at night that can be accessed by rats. This will also remove a source of food in areas where bears might still be on nocturnal prowls. Protecting feeders with a baffle is another good way to keep rats away. I especially enjoy the large winter groups of bush tits that visit our suet feeder on their daily rounds. They seem so purposeful and

Because birds need to remain agile for flying, they cannot afford to eat too much at one time and gain excessive weight. Thus, each day they must find a sufficient amount of food to get them through a cold night. This time of year provides an opportunity to enjoy occasional glimpses of varied thrushes. These colourful birds appear in residential areas and parks in late fall, when snow at higher elevations poses a challenge for them to find food on the forest floor.

These birds, similar in size to robins (and like robins, a member of the thrush family) blend in beautifully with the colour of fallen autumn leaves. Varied thrushes are not the only birds that descend from higher elevations this time of year. Families of dippers also move downstream each fall to find open water and salmon eggs on which to feast. Dippers have a most unusual foraging technique of diving into cold streams in search of aquatic insects and other tasty treats. Still, their long, melodious song reveals their true identity as songbirds.

With the Christmas season approaching, it is also time for the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count. This year, the local count will take place on Saturday, Dec. 17. Conducted since 1900, the annual count now provides a valuable long-term census on winter bird populations throughout North America. Birds are recorded by volunteers within a 24 km diameter count circle that never changes in position once established. The local count circle has its centre in Pitt Meadows so, while all of Port Coquitlam is included, some of the western areas in Coquitlam and Port Moody are excluded. The Christmas Bird Count on this side of the Pitt River is being organized by the Burke Mountain naturalists. People who wish to participate should email burkemtsnats@gmail.com. Inexperienced birders will be teamed up with more knowledgeable people so it can be a good opportunity to learn more about local birds. Teams are assigned particular areas to cover and typically spend the morning recording all the birds they see.

Christmas Rose needs some protection IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter Once they’ve been planted, helleborus plants don’t need a great deal of care

I

n old-fashioned gardens, Helleborus niger, or the ‘Christmas Rose’, was certainly one of the best known winter flowers. And for 2005, the whole helleborus family was chosen as the Perennial Plant of the Year. The earliest to flower, H. niger, is native to many parts of Europe, in particular to the sub-alpine woods of Austria and northern Italy, and many varieties are available, some hardy to -30 F. Helleborus niger is so named because its roots are black; the blossoms, however, are pure white. Depending upon the type of winter we have and the variety of helleborus, blooming can begin in December and continue well into late March. The Heuger Company, under the leadership of Josef Heuger, has bred fabulous earlier blooming H. nigers that have glossy green leaves and offer superior garden performance. The earliest to bloom is H.n. ‘Jacob’. It blooms about two weeks earlier than other varieties. It has strong stems and upright blossoms that are far larger and

showier. Its tough shiny green foliage allows it to be brought indoors in a cool room for the Christmas season and then be planted out in mild weather after the holiday season. Helleborus niger ‘Josef Lemper’ has very large flowers on robust stems, and it too is very showy because of its upward facing blooms. It has superior garden performance and makes a wonderful addition to our winter gardens. Helleborus plants can be propagated from seed or from divisions; the latter is certainly the fastest way to achieve a blooming plant. Up until a few years ago, finding helleborus was difficult because they usually arrived bare root from Holland and were exceedingly tough to re-root. With the growing interest, and with tissue culture and new seeding techniques, more perennial growers have begun producing them, and they are now quite plentiful. I would recommend that the home gardener purchase only well established plants that have been grown in a container for at least one year. Helleborus niger, like many other winterflowering plants, should be placed in a protected spot, next to a house, wall or in front of a protective barrier of evergreens, but always out of cold winter winds. The more protected their location, the earlier and longer they will bloom. They also prefer a semishaded site, but it is important that they receive some sun in winter. A location under deciduous trees is ideal, as long as the shade

is not too dense. A cool, moist situation is preferred, and deep watering is essential during periods of drought. Any soil in your garden that produces good flowering plants will usually suit helleborus. Container-grown plants can be set out at any time of the year, but it is wise to prepare a deep planting hole because the roots must stretch down, not outward. It is also important to set

the crowns of the plants just below the soil line. Good drainage is essential, as the fleshy roots will not tolerate wet feet, however, they love ‘humusy’ conditions. I have found a mixture of peat, bark mulch and bone meal helpful in the development of new root growth. Once established, helleborus plants need little care. Although aphids can sometimes be a problem, few other insects bother them. Even slugs tend to shy away from their bitter leaves. They love to be fertilized, and a feeding of 10-15-19 fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer is ideal to help develop a strong root system and plenty of flowers. You’ll find that most helleborus are rather slow growing perennials. It may take a year or two before they begin flowering in earnest. To get more plants, it is often tempting to divide smaller clumps in half, but you must be careful. No dividing should take place until the plants have at least a dozen or more strong leaves on a good sized clump. The larger the clump grows, the more bountiful the flowers. I always remember a fresh bouquet of ‘Christmas Roses’ on my Grandmother’s hearth each Christmas. They are certainly a special winter treat. Today many helleborus varieties are being grown in BC, and the first ones are now in bloom for planting outside in your garden or even in containers. Don’t’ miss out on these amazing winter plants and remember, they also make wonderful Christmas gifts.

GVHBA renovation seminar attracts more than 300 people

Tips for getting you through the renovation Do you want to renovate your house, but find the whole idea a little intimidating? The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association is on the case. Last week the GVHBA held a seminar meant to demystify the whole process. The seminar attracted over 300 attendees, and GVHBA President and CEO Peter Simpson says they went home ready to go on their projects. He says homeowners need to focus on four key words: get it in writing. Getting everything in writing means you’ll have proof in the event of a dispute. Spell it out on paper and the contractor will have a record of exactly what’s expected, and you will know exactly how much you’re going to pay. Another tip from the seminar is to avoid the underground economy. Homeowners who

take this route are placing themselves at risk by avoiding the safeguards that come with hiring a reputable contractor. You might save yourself some cash, but if something goes wrong you are completely unprotected. Are you going to live in the house during the reno? You’ll have to create a set of rules for the contractor – and your family – to live by. Can the workers use your bathrooms? How about playing music in the house? “All of these rules ... have to be determined up front in the contract,” Simpson says. He also recommends looking for Renomark-branded contractors, who have agreed to the GVHBA code of ethics as well as the RenoMark code of conduct, which mandates minimum standards for warranties, liability, insurance and safety.

Striking a chord with homebuyers

Heritage-style chic at Mosaic’s Foster by Kerry Vital

Entering Mosaic Homes’ newest development, Foster in West Coquitlam, feels like you’re walking into a chic heritage enclave, one that perhaps reminds you of days gone by when a classic red-brick exterior and Georgian architecture was the height of style. Seeing the high-end features and expansive floorplans, you might expect this beauty to come with an equally high-end price tag, perhaps one that keeps it out of reach for the typical first-time home buyer. You’d be wrong. “People are pleasantly surprised they can afford a home that looks this good,” says Mosaic’s Geoff Duyker. “I have never worked on a project that had so many (first-time home buyers) ... It’s really struck a chord with buyers.” Ranging between 607 and 994 square feet, the one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes feel spacious as soon as you walk in. Overheight 9’ ceilings and open floorplans combine for a fantastic sense of space. The two-bedroom floorplans are proving particularly popular. “These are the most effective two-

bedroom plans available,” says Duyker. “They give you the maximum possible benefit of space.” There is no shortage of beautiful features at Foster, including engineered laminate wood flooring throughout the living, dining and kitchen areas, and luxurious loop pile carpeting in the bedrooms and dens. Speaking of those kitchens, polished composite stone countertops and a glass tile backsplash are complemented by under-cabinet puck lighting and sophisticated Greenlam and lacquer cabinetry with polished chrome pulls. Stainless-steel appliances are standard, while the integral exposed shelving system (designed by Mosaic) is a serious work of genius. The bathrooms are a spa-like piece of paradise, with deep soaker tubs (also designed by Mosaic) and porcelain tiles on the floors and tub and shower surround. In a charming little touch, the shower includes a recessed pot light

that complements the pendant light fixture in polished chrome and white glass. However, the location has also become a big draw for buyers at Foster. Just a block away from the future Evergreen Line, owners will be surrounded by everything they could possibly need. Schools, recreation facilities, shopping and other amenities are all within easy reach at Foster. Foster held its grand opening in early

November, and within a week, over 100 of the 161 homes were sold. “It’s been quite remarkable,” says Duyker, adding that Mosaic’s reputation for building better homes has contributed to Foster’s popularity. Foster is now selling its third phase, and there is still a good selection of homes available, Duyker says. Homes start at $250,000. For more information visit www.mosaichomes. com/foster or call 604-936-9300.

People are pleasantly surprised they can afford a home that looks this good,” says Mosaic’s Geoff Duyker.

Black Cats Drag back forward in trade spree By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Port Coquitlam’s Leslie Pribyl is seen here during an October training session in Kona, Hawaii. She overcame serious injury to finish strong in Sunday’s Ironman Cozumel.

Getting the Iron back in her life By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

L

eslie Pribyl’s body may have been broken but another component pivotal to triumph for a top-calibre athlete certainly was not. Her spirit. The Port Coquitlam resident courageously overcame a severe concussion and fractured pelvis suffered in a nasty bike crash last year to burn up the Ironman Cozumel last Sunday in Mexico. Pribyl raced to fifth spot in the women’s 45-49 age group in the demanding three-discipline competition and improved her previous best time at an Ironman distance by an astonishing 52 minutes, something she could never imagine while rendered run-less until a few months ago due to recurring symptoms as a result of her head injury. “I was off work for 12 weeks, mostly from the concussion side effects,” said Pribyl, a supervisor at

BC Biomedical and member of the Tri-City-based Pacific Rim Multisport triathlon club. “I was able to start swimming fairly early with no kicking [but] I was not allowed to ride my bike outdoors for 12 weeks until my concussion symptoms subsided and [there was] no running for eight months. “The most difficult part was psychological... feeling like you are never going to recover or get back to my previous fitness level.” Pribyl’s accident was purely that –– having skidded out on gravel on the side of a Maple Ridge farm road during a routine PMR group ride. “She went down hard,” recalled Darcel Moro, who was part of cycling pack that day. “Other riders removed their coats to layer on Leslie and huddled around her to keep her warm. She was in too much pain to move her so we did not try, opting instead to wait for paramedics.”

As evident Sunday, Pribyl is amazingly stronger than ever. Battling Mother Nature’s Central America moodiness of heat, humidity, wind and heavy rain, Pribyl completed the 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike and 42.2 km run in 11 hours, 10 minutes and 48 seconds. Despite not being permitted to run for a substantial period, she posted a standout time of 4:14:42 in the event’s final leg, the marathon, without so much as taking a walk break. “Leslie had a strong effort on all accounts, [with] personal bests in all three disciplines,” raved her coach and PRM president Ann Barnes. “Having been sidelined with injury in May 2010 created additional mental toughness for her to come back stronger than ever for 2011. Many athletes would have been derailed but Leslie chose to stay the course of a carefully managed and strategic comeback.

“She is a workhorse and not afraid of pain, as evidenced by [Sunday’s] gutsy performance.” In turn, Pribyl credited Barnes and many other of her PRM club-mates for keeping her desire and determination to compete at her optimum. “Ann was the person responsible for keeping my sanity and making me laugh when I was down... keeping me included in club activities and workouts when I could and keeping me company when I could only pool run,” said Pribyl, who completed three Ironmans prior to her mishap and has committed to two half-Ironmans over the next six months before tackling the Cozumel course again next year. “I also had some very good friends who would finish their swim workout and hop in the lane with me to pool run just to keep my spirits up... and who told me my running would come back stronger than ever, and they were right. “It also gave me a stronger desire to push harder and reach my goals.”

Ron Luniw is hoping his latest trade Wednesday proves to be a real Steel. The Por t Moody Black Panthers general manager shipped disgruntled goalie Nick Taylor to the Grandview Steelers in exchange for Serbia-born power forward Mico Dragutinovic, a first cousin of the N H L Boston Bruins’ Milan Lucic w h o t o i l e d DRAGUTINOVIC for the Cats at the start of last Pacific International Jr. ‘B’ hockey league season. The swap was one of four deals Luniw made in the week to try to improve his slumping squad, which has just three wins in its last 12 games. Luniw also acquired goalie Mark Menicucci and six-foot-three forward Coleman Foisy from the Aldergrove Kodiaks, along with forward Brendan Gulka from the North Vancouver Wolf Pack, in separate cash deals. “We’ve got lots of speed but we lack some size and grit,” Luniw said, adding the sixfoot-two, 200-pound Dragutinovic should help shore up that specific area. Dragutinovic, 19, had 10 points, including six goals, in 12 outings with Grandview prior to the deal. A former prospect of the WHL Vancouver Giants, he has failed to find a secure home in the PIJHL, having played with four different teams –– PoMo, Squamish (North Van), Mission and the Steelers.

This past weekend, the Under 14 Metro-Ford Arsenal defeated the very strong and talented Port Coquitlam Storm by a narrow 1-0 margin. The entire Metro-Ford team played remarkably well and fully earned the victory. However, goalkeeper MATTHEW PANCOUST stood out as he pulled off several brilliant saves throughout the match. Despite the miserable weather conditions, Matthew remained focused on his task and fully earned the shutout. For his excellent performance this past weekend, MATTHEW PANCOUST has been selected as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Male Player of the Week!

This week’s Coquitlam Metro-Ford female player of the week is BRIANNA MORRISON, a defender on the BCSPL Under 18 Kaos team. Brianna played extremely well in the Field Turf Cup, staged this past weekend at the Starfire Complex in Seattle. Not only did Brianna play consistently in her left-back position, but she also scored two goals as she pushed forward frequently and dangerously. Her excellent performance played a huge part in her team’s success in the tournament. As a result, BRIANNA MORRISON has been chosen as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Female Player of the Week.

Freitag’s try ignites U. women’s Tier 1 team Brittany Freitag’s try took time coming but opened the floodg ates when it did for the United Tier 1 women’s rugby squad Saturday in North Vancouver. Parading in the pouring rain, United had several chances to score before Freitag finally did so, paving the way for a 29-5 romp over SFU in the annual Anna Schnell Bowl between the local rivals. United led 12-0 at halftime. Fly-half Shannon Craig and wing Alicia Gueren were among the other United try-makers, while Candace Barry nailed a penalty kick to wrap up the scoring. In Div. 1 women’s action, United fell 17-5 to host Kelowna in inclement weather. The previous weekend, a last-ditch

Selects battle big boys in Balt. Four Tri-City players were members of the Bur naby Mountain Selects senior elite team that went 2-3-1 at the prestigious Dave Cottle Fall Invitational field lacrosse tournament earlier this month in Baltimore, Md. Midfielders Jordan Stroup and Matt Symes and defender Alex Thomson, all of Coquitlam, joined Port Moody goalie Jacob Moran on the Selects, who posted respective 8-0 and 9-7 victories over Maryland’s Chesapeake Rock and Ontario’s Edge Elite squad. The Selects also tied Edge 6-6 in another contest, while falling 5-4 to Pennsylvania’s Headstrong, 9-2 to South Shore of New Jersey and 6-2 to Mesa Fresh of Pennsylvania. Before the tournament, the Selects visited the University of Maryland campus and carried on later in the day to spend time checking out the White House in Washington, D.C. and other historic monuments. After, the Selects also spent a day touring New York City.

PoCo hot to hit Hockeyville 2012 Port Coquitlam is shooting to become Hockeyville 2012. The city has officially entered the country-wide annual Kraft Hockeyville contest, in which the

surge by United came up just short as they dropped a tough 22-20 decision to Richmond in a Div. 1 men’s battle. Orisi Vukivana scored two tries for United, while Nick Hammerschmidt added a penalty boot in a losing effort. Strong tackling was provided by United’s Paddy McGinn. In a Div. 2 men’s contest, United again fell by a mere two points –– 12-10 –– to Richmond. Newcomer Demir Dzanic and flyhalf Andrew Flood scored a try apiece for United. In another tilt, United’s Div. 3 men’s team was thumped 38-10 by SFU. Last Saturday, the Div. 3 unit did not play because Ridge Meadows failed to field enough players.

EMPLOYMENT/EDUCATION 108 BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS

CHILDREN WINSLEY, William Arthur Our Dear Bill and Papa passed away on Nov. 25, 2011 after a courageous battle with cancer, at the young age of 67. He is predeceased by his parents, brother and sister. He was born and raised on a sugar plantation in Ewa, Hawaii. He proudly served his country during the Vietnam War. He moved to Canada in 1965, where he worked for various companies and later retired from the City of Coquitlam after 30 years of service. He will be deeply missed by his long time love, Darlene and her daughters, Jen (Jeff) and Jackie (Mike) and his four beloved grandchildren Evan, Mason, Cole and Jada. Bill was the best Stepdad and Grandpa ever and treated Darlene’s family like his own. He is also survived by his U.S. family, Matt and Michelle (Zack and Leah), Laura-Lynn and Brian (Patrick and Ian), his beloved special Auntie Jean, sister-in-law Marilyn, and his special niece Tammy (Mariah) who was like his own daughter. Also, many other nieces, nephews and cousins. Birch Bay was his sanctuary, his home away from home that brought him many years of peace and relaxation with his family and many friends. He built it especially for everyone to enjoy. Bill lived his life to the fullest every day. He was a very special person and his friends felt very privileged to be a part of his life. He was his grandchildren’s biggest fan and our hero. His infectious smile will never be forgotten. He will be sorely missed but forever in our hearts. Bill’s last request was to have no funeral, but a celebration of life will be held in January and another one in Birch Bay next summer. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the B.C. Cancer Foundation in his name.

OPEN YOUR HEART OPEN YOUR HOME Adults w/ physical & mental disabilities face housing issues even greater than the average person. Thompson Community Services’ mission is to help meet those needs. For more than 20 years, Thompson has met the housing and personal needs of people with a range of disabilities. Now we’re hoping we can find individuals in the TriCities and Richmond areas, who can help us continue that tradition of services. Our clients have a variety of needs, but most simply need a home where people will care about them. They require supervision and need the support and stability that comes from living in a home. What they really need is someone to care, just as Thompson Community Services has cared. We are seeking female caregivers, who have extensive experience and knowledge around supporting individuals with mental health conditions. If you have extra room in your home & want to take on one of the most rewarding challenges you’ll ever face, we’ll be happy to give you more information.
