number one tourist attraction and the region’s biggest home furnishings retailer, felt the impact of the infrastructure work, showing a 10% decrease in

revenues over this time last year, spokesperson Jen Knight said. “It almost killed our business,” said Kimberly Nuessler, office manager of Fireplaces To Go, which is on United Boulevard and close to the new viaduct’s south end. Contractors Kiewit/ Flatiron often blocked her business’ driveway with trucks and put up a sign outside her store that read “Do Not Enter Construction Zone.” Potential customers would call to ask where Fireplaces To Go is located but would refuse

to come by because they knew United was gridlocked from the construction, Nuessler said. “When you can’t get people through the door, it’s insane,” she said, adding the company laid off four of its nine employees because of the disruption. Colby Appleby, manager of Clif fhanger Indoor Rock Climbing C e n t re, l o c at e d o n Brigantine Drive off United Boulevard, said its business also suffered. see KING EDWARD, EDWARD, page 3

Temporary shelters to open again on Tuesday Fewer clients likely as there are fewer homeless locally By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam Alliance Church will open its doors to shelter homeless people beginning Nov. 1 but how many of those people will show up is unknown due to declining rates of homelessness in the Tri-Cities. “It will be a very interesting year,” conceded Rob

Thiessen, managing director of the Hope for Freedom Society which runs the cold/wet weather mat program. Outreach workers who counted homeless people in the region last month found 48 people living rough, compared to 72 people in September 2010 and 215 in 2008. Thiessen attributes the lower numbers to the success of the mat program and the fact that outreach workers have built relationships with service provid-

ers who can help homeless people, and Hope For Freedom’s own recovery program, which has 85 beds for people seeking to combat substance abuse issues. “The partnerships and the ability for our outreach team to get people to a recovery program is a big part of that,” he said, noting those who are still homeless may need more intensive services. “We’re going to need more from mental health and things like that to get the last of it done.”

Thiessen said he never imagined a drop in homelessness when he faced an initial storm of controversy in Coquitlam over the mat program when it was proposed a few years ago. Then, people were concerned crime and transient populations coming to TriCities, issues that failed to materialize. Now, ending homelessness “seems like something we can take the risk of dreaming,” Thiessen said, although he warned against complacency and

No one was laid off but staff had to be compensated for overtime because groups arrived late for booked times due to traffic tie-ups. “They knew there was construction,” he said. “They left early and they still arrived late. It was really frustrating for them.” Transit was also a problem as the temporary shuttle from Planet Ice wasn’t regular and didn’t travel the full distance of United Boulevard, he said, noting many regular members decided to switch to the Cliffhanger in Vancouver rather than deal with the commuting delays. M a u r i c e G r ave l l e, Coquitlam’s general manager of strategic initiatives, said Kiewit/Flatiron worked around the clock for 12 weeks to get the four-lane overpass open on time and on budget. The overpass is a provincial project, part of the $3-billion Gateway Program to upgrade Highway 1 and twin the Port Mann bridge. The city contributed $7.7 million towards the work while the Beedie Group, which plans to build a waterfront community on the historic Fraser Mills site, forked over $500,000 for the fit-and-finish of the overpass as it will link directly to its future development. Gravelle said the city communicated with the 550 area business owners and operators through email notifications as often as possible and “we didn’t really

said a permanent homeless shelter at 3030 Gordon Ave. in Coquitlam is still necessary to help local homeless people. Thiessen said poverty continues to be an ongoing issue, evidenced by the high numbers of people who attended the recent Connect Day to get a free meal and some services. Many of those who showed up weren’t homeless but they were at risk of being homeless. “Like the guy who was just in here,” Thiessen said,

“He can’t find a place to live at $375 [welfare shelter rates] so he spends almost all his welfare cheque, except for $10. For food he has to go to the food bank.” M e a n wh i l e, i n Po r t Moody, council supported the continued use of St. Andrew’s United Church for the cold/wet weather mat program in March. “It does work,” said Coun. Bob Elliott, who is the city’s liaison on the TriCities Homelessness Task Group. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

More talk on connector By Diane Strandberg

The city contributed $7.7 million towards the project, which is part of the $3-billion Gateway Program. have much [feedback] during the construction time. Businesses were expecting this project and it’s going to make a huge improvement for this area,” he said. As for the temporary Taft detour for drivers travelling from United to Highway 1 westbound, that will be closed as of 8 p.m. tonight (Friday). The makeshift fire station on Fawcett Road will also shut down soon, said Tony Delmonico, Coquitlam’s fire chief. Since early August, the full-time four-person company was called to “nu-

merous incidents” along United, he said, including car accidents and medical emergencies. Having a station close to the scene was invaluable despite the $300,000 operational and $25,000 capital costs to the city, Delmonico said. M e a n w h i l e, K i e w i t / Flatiron crews will continue to put the finishing touches on the overpass in the next three months. The miscellaneous work includes pouring concrete in the two islands in the south leg of the King Edward Street/ Lougheed intersection, and

building sidewalks and curbs on the south side of United Boulevard, at King Edward Street. An official grand opening for the public is expected in January, when the project is complete. • For more information on the King Edward Street overpass project, call the city’s engineering customer service at 604-927-3500.

Skeptics on Port Moody council didn’t derail a visioning exercise between the city and TransLink to determine the fate of Murray and Clarke streets now that an overpass is off the to-do list. The city is about to embark on a process to look at the best way to utilize the heavily travelled corridor now that plans to build the Murray-Clarke Connector are on hold. Options are being put forth to either reduce traffic along the route using roundabouts, bike lanes and treed medians or add an extra lane for cars, plus traffic control features that would allow one-way traffic on the Moody Street overpass during rush hour. While the options are for discussion purposes only, some councillors expressed doubts that talking to TransLink would bear fruit. “The only action I can see is taking it out of the MRN [Major Road Network],” said Coun. Bob Elliott. But Coun. Meghan Lahti suggested it wouldn’t hurt to at least talk to TransLink to get some ideas for improving the corridor. “Tell us how you’re going to help us create a better flow through,” Lahti said. Councillors Diana D i lwo r t h a n d K a re n Rockwell also supported the plan to consult with TransLink on options, with Dilworth saying, “I never

Coun. Mike Clay supported pulling out of the MRN.” City engineer Cory Day said TransLink is interested in meeting with council to discuss some options and will cost-share the services of a consultant, estimated at $50,000, for the visioning project. Members of the public will also get a say at an open house. The city will pay for its share from the $115,000 Murray/Moody intersection improvement project, which has been on hold pending resolution of the connector issue. Coun. Mike Clay lauded the report, saying it will lead to more ideas for improving the corridor. He also suggested the city consider options other than simply maintaining existing capacity or adding more lanes. “If TransLink has a better idea, we should be all ears as well,” Clay said, adding that exploring ideas for the route is better than taking it out of TransLink’s control, which could end up costing the city $565,000 in maintenance and upgrade costs. Coun. Ger ry Nuttall agreed, saying he doesn’t want to saddle PoMo taxpayers with the additional costs. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Elect for Coquitlam Mayor

• Property taxes need to be restrained and kept at a reasonable level. • Transportation improvements that match growth in Coquitlam. • Safe neighbourhoods through a Crime Reduction Strategy that lowers break and enters. • Community and regional planning that protect local planning decisions.

Is Belcarra satisfied or... ? By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

When Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew is asked when the last time was that someone challenged him in an election campaign, he has to think about it. “1996?,� he asks. “It has been quite a while. I’m not even sure, to tell you the honest truth. It has been more than 12 years, in that range.� This fall’s civic election is no different after Drew and the four village councillors were acclaimed for the third term in a row, a feat he said “probably sets a record.� Drew interprets the lack of challengers as Belcarra residents having confidence in council but does not discount other factors. First, there is the possibility that nobody else wants the job, he said. Belcarra’s geography could also be a factor. He equates the community to an island — surrounded by water and a Metro Vancouver park. The village does not have to deal with many of the contentious land use issues that larger, growing municipalities face, such as high density developments and expanded subdivisions. If the services are provided and the community’s affairs are managed properly, Drew said, most voters are happy. “We are very focused on the basics,� he said. “As long as you are taking care of the garbage, the roads and the day-today operations, people are content.� Drew does not worry that the repeated acclamation will create complacency at city hall. Voters in Belcarra are engaged, he said, and if council was not doing a good job, they would be quickly replaced. It is not uncommon for the village to get between 50 and 80 people to a public consultation meetings, numbers that

Those is not a lot but it is better occupying the seats than a kick in the pants.�

Like neighbouring cities where elections will be held, the mayor and council in Belcarra will still have to participate in the inaugural meeting and will renew their pledge of office at a swearing in ceremony after the civic vote. But without an election, Drew said council can continue to focus on the work of the village rather than worrying about campaigning for their jobs — at least for another three years. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Summer school busy By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

School District 43 is considering expanding its summer school skillbuilding programs to make them available to more elementary school students As many as 1,000 elementary school-aged children took free language arts and math skill-building courses at three schools last summer but the vice-principal of SD43’s Learning Innovations Network Coquitlam, said he would like to see the courses offered at two additional schools next year. “We’re almost full everywhere we go,” Mike McGlenen said. “We’re looking to get it out into more spots in the district.” Offering programs in different neighbourhoods may help where accessibility is in an issue, McGlenen said, and he isn’t worried about people using the program as free daycare because it’s only for half a day. “I’d be surprised if it’s used in that way,” he said, explaining that the program is for

SUMMER GAMES HELP

The city of Coquitlam has a partner in its bid for the 2016 Summer Games after School District 43 trustees voted Tuesday to allow district facilities to be used for sporting events and accommodation on a cost-neutral basis. If the city wins the bid, expected to generate millions of dollars in community spin-offs, the games would mark the city’s 125th birthday. Coquitlam is now seeking Games Champions to support the bid. students who could benefit from a little more time with a teacher before embarking on their summer holiday. “The teachers assess where they are [academically] and try to move forward,” McGlenen said of the free programs that run from 9 a.m. to noon daily for about three weeks in July. A similar program for language arts, math and science is also available for middle school students and last year 541 students attended. At the high school level, 355 students enrolled in skill-building programs while 273 attended remedial programs and 1,685 students took regular secondary school courses. A report to school

board Tuesday noted that the programs have a high success rate, with 99% of students in elementary and 97% of middle school students completing the program. At the high school level, 90% of students in skill building, 98% of students in remedial programs and 93% of students in academic courses received a pass or better. In all, 3,854 students took summer school courses this year and another 485 high school students signed up for the Coquitlam Open Lear ning Fast Track Program, which offer courses with a blend of online and face-to-face instruction for students requiring flexibility in their school year.

By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

VICTORIA – Two months into a work-to-rule campaign by B.C.’s public school teachers, the bargaining agent for school districts is seeking an order forcing teachers to provide report cards. Education Minister George Abbott declined to comment on an application by the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association to cut teacher pay by up to 15 per cent if they don’t produce report cards and perform other duties. But he agrees that reporting on student progress should be an essential service. “Report cards and reporting generally are hugely important to us,” Abbott said. “It is not acceptable to me, nor to the ministry of education, to have children and parents in British Columbia not understanding how they are progressing.” The ministry has directed principals and vice principals to send out report cards, but Abbott acknowledged that without teacher input, they may contain little more than an attendance report. The employers’ association applied to the B.C. Labour Relations Board Wednesday for a declaration on report cards and the option of reduced pay for reduced work. A decision could take two weeks. The last contract with B.C.’s 41,000 public school teachers expired in June. In addition to wage and benefit increases, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation wants restoration of class size and special needs support rules, after a court ruling gave the government a year to consult with teachers on appropriate levels. Abbott also presented legislation Wednesday to dissolve the B.C. College of Teachers, reducing the BCTF’s power to protect and reinstate teachers facing discipline for misconduct. Last year former deputy minister Don Avison reported on the function of college discipline and found that the BCTF-dominated discipline committee “appeared to minimize the severity” of offences. BCTF president Susan Lambert has disputed his findings. Avison highlighted two cases where teachers had their certification restored, one after being convicted of sexual assaults on students and another after serving six years in prison for trafficking cocaine. The legislation creates a new B.C. Teachers’ Council with a commissioner to oversee complaints. Discipline panels would no longer have a majority of BCTF appointees. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Q WHAT WE THINK:

L

ast week, more than 530,000 British Columbians practised “Drop, Cover and Hold On” techniques, simulating the proper behaviour in an earthquake. While it’s hard to know how many Tri-City residents participated in the ShakeOut B.C. simulation on Oct. 20, there’s a good bet that most people — except for emergency responders, government workers and schools — ignored the preparedness exercise. That’s too bad because The Great British Columbia Shakeout is a terrific opportunity to remember that Mother Nature can get cranky at a moment’s notice and the Lower Mainland is long overdue for the big quake. But even though the opportunity for joining in a mass quake simulation is over, people can still practise the safety techniques any time at home and at work. This is also a great time to stock up on emergency supplies such as water and food, and make a plan to be self-sufficient for 72 hours should the region be hit by a devastating quake.

The delicate art of parking. Hey, you leavin’? AS I SEE IT Chris Bryan

W

hat kind of parker are you? Arriving at a busy shopping mall, do you drive around endlessly in search of a space? Do you meander, as though on a Sunday drive through the country, until luck strikes? Or are you a different breed entirely, one who idles the car outside the mall doors? It’s not stalking, really, is it? Let’s call it “following with intent.” Sure, this approach might get you labelled a creep but that’s not the only peril. After all, you might follow your target all the way across the lot only to watch as they dodge through some bushes to the sidewalk and wait for a bus. Back to square one. The obvious solution is to first ask, “Hey, you leaving in a car?” before initiating the pursuit. If they nod, there will be that added charm of the fact you’re not only following

them at 4 km/h in your vehicle, but they know you are. You’ve made a friend. Then there is the hybrid approach. You wander the lot until you spot someone with bags or a shopping cart and you make the contact there. It seems like serendipity, doesn’t it? Like a surprisingly pleasant chat with an attractive server at a restaurant. You’re both there for a purpose. You’re not a vulture. I must say, though, it’s good to pick your spots. If a woman is coming out of a grocery store with two toddlers, a baby and an obscene amount of groceries, “Hey, you leavin’?” might not get you a smile. When it comes to parking, I prefer the outdoor variety. Even if you’re not claustrophobic, there’s something about the cavernous, multi-tiered parkades at Metropolis at Metrotown and Pacific Centre that suggest a trip to the centre of the Earth. I get short of breath. Even in a small car, the ceilings seem low, the spots squeakingly narrow. But the real challenge is to find your car

IN QUOTES

“I get out of the car and walk backwards toward the elevator. It’s like previewing how things will look when I return.” Chris Bryan when you come back. There was a time when I just said to myself “You left it by the concrete pillar” but soon learned this wasn’t good enough. Today, I get out of the car and walk backwards toward the elevator. It’s like previewing how things will look when I return. A friend takes this one step further and snaps a photo with her camera phone. For tech lovers, there are also devices such as the Auto Finder, which I found online from the appropriately named Finder Technologies. The website states it can “find

your car from one-half mile away... using our patented radio direction-finding technology.” Put the beacon on your windshield behind the rearview and when you exit the shops all befuddled, anxious, catatonic, suicidal, pondering just abandoning your car forever — wherever the heck it is — you simply pull out your little fob and press a button. Then you spin around in circles until, like a Geiger counter or something, it suddenly goes BEEPBEEP-BEEP and the arrows light up. An improvement on this, in my humble opinion, would be one that says “warmer... warmer... oh, you’re getting hot, hotter.” Finder Technology also sells a the Child Finder and Pet Finder, too, though I’m not sure where you’re supposed to affix the beacon to your kid. Regardless, it’s a great idea. You could just let them loose in the morning, then pull out the fancy gadget and track them down at the end of the day. No more daycare, no more using the kennel.

FACE TO FACE: Should roadside shrines to the dead be allowed?

Community & survivors served C

ommunities across North America are facing increasing pressures to regulate roadside memorials. There are some, like my colleague opposite, who think they are an eyesore and distraction. I, on the other hand, have a more compassionate take, and believe these impromptu cenotaphs serve several important purposes. The practice of erecting roadside memorials not only brings comfort to those who have suddenly lost a loved one in motor vehicle accident, but also allows the public an opportunity to collectively mourn the loss of a community member. I feel compelled to cite the tragic accident involving two young women who in February were killed by an alleged drunk driver on Lougheed Highway in Coquitlam. Lorraine Cruz was driving a SUV when it struck a concrete barrier near Pitt River Road. Charlene Reaveley saw the crash and approached the vehicle to check on the occupants. She was helping Cruz out of the SUV when the two women were hit by a Jeep. They were killed instantly. The story of their deaths touched the whole community; we all felt their families’ loss even

ANDY RADIA

though most of us didn’t know them. Their roadside memorial, which still exists today, allows passers-by the opportunity to reflect, remember and to receive closure on the loss of two reportedly extraordinary women especially since most of us weren’t included in the funeral itself. Moreover, according to a 2008 study conducted by the University of Calgary and the Alberta Motor Association, the presence of roadside memorials can actually make people drive more carefully in some instances. As part of the study, researchers placed mocked-up memorials at selected intersections with red light cameras within the city of Calgary. In the six weeks after the markers were installed, nearly 17% fewer drivers ran red lights than in the six weeks prior to installation. “No study thus far has found any negative safety effects, either in the long term or the short term,” noted the study. “There does not appear to be any downside in allowing roadside memorials.” Sure, these memorials can sometimes by an eyesore but the benefits to the grieving families and community outweigh the minor irritation.

support the limiting of the ubiquitous roadside shrines we erect in memory of those who died at a particular intersection or on a certain stretch of highway. We all empathize with the victims of horrific traffic tragedies and with their surviving friends and family. That said, it is neither helpful nor reasonable to expect everyone to be indefinitely exposed to roadside shrines each day on the way to work. I don’t think public memorials should be banned, as some U.S. states have done. These states argue that roadside shrines are a distraction to drivers, that some are unsightly and that erecting crosses on public property espouses Christianity and thus contravenes the constitutional separation of church and state. That’s not why we should discourage roadside shrines. If roadside shrines helped the victim, the surviving family and friends or the community, we would all be willing to dismiss such minor complaints — we do already, mistakenly believing we are supporting the bereaved. Roadside shrines are erected and maintained by mourners to show the depth and duration of their grief and sensitivity. They sentence mourners to prolonged

focus on the awful venue and grizzly details of the death rather than on remembering the life. Roadside shrines encourage grieving to go on and on and require all of us to bear daily witness to the public, maudlin scene. This is why we should discourage them. Roadside shrines don’t help. They serve to publicly prolong grief and preclude a crucial part of grieving: closure. In schools, when there is a tragic death, educators often help grieving students through their initial desire for spectacular, public memorialization, like renaming the gymnasium after a lost classmate or suspending classes in memory. In such times, schools help students to realize that public memorializing is not more profound or virtuous than private grieving; that although public grieving may be gratifying to you, it’s not about you. Rather, it’s about being sensitive and respectful towards the family and others who have privately suffered similar, if less spectacular, losses. If, after a tragic accident, we all knew that we could choose to erect a roadside shrine for one month, the clarity would be helpful and ultimately liberating to both the bereaved and the community.

Dispute between union, labour council in PoCo 20 VOTESMART11 NWDLC backs Moore while CUPE may not

The union representing Port Coquitlam firefighters released its list this week of candidates its endorsing in next month’s civic election. Dale Truscott, president of Local 1941, said the group is recommending incumbent councillors Darrell Penner, Glenn Pollock and Brad West to its members. Meanwhile, Truscott said off-duty members will be picking up election signs the day after the Nov. 19 election and storing them at the main fire hall, a service offered to “to all the mayoral and councillor candidates that wish to take advantage of our offer� for collection. The union locals in Coquitlam and Port Moody have yet to disclose their lists of endorsed candidates. jwarren@tricitynews.com

not happy with it. There will be that are one endorsement and not on the other. It is not an ideal situation for labour.� This is not the first time that CUPE has had disagreements with the NWDLC over who should be endorsed. In the 2008 civic election, the two organizations butted heads after the labour council chose not to support PoCo mayoral candidate Mike Bowen while CUPE gave him its endorsement.

That lasted until he got elected.� The fact that one labour group is supporting Moore while another is rejecting his candidacy does not bode well for either organization, Richardson said. The NWDLC’s decision is confusing, he added, and could create confusion when members go to the ballot box for next month’s civic election. “It is not a good thing,� he said. “I am

Port Coquitlam Mayor Gre g Moore m ay h ave re c e ive d the endorsement of the New Westminster District Labour Council (NWDLC) but not all labour organizations will be backing his bid for re-election. Earlier this week, Bruce Richardson, vice-president of CUPE Local 561, which represents School District 43 employees, said his union would not be supporting the mayor’s reelection bid. (CUPE has not yet released its official list of endorsed candidates in the Tri-Cities.) Richardson told The Tri-City News that Moore was too closely aligned with the Gordon Campbell BC Liberal government and turned his back on the union after CUPE endorsed his council candidacy in 2002. “With the endorsement we gave him, he was able to get elected and after that it was g o o d bye, � h e s a i d . “Moore was, at one time, a CUPE member.

After that, CUPE Local 498, which represents PoCo city staff, pulled out of the NWDLC. Carolyn Rice, the secretary-treasurer with the New Westminster District Labour Council, said her organization has a good relationship with CUPE. She said minor disagreements over endorsements are common and the two organizations both have similar goals. “I guess everybody gets to have their opinion,� she said. “We don’t always agree 100%.� When contacted by The Tri-City Ne ws, Moore said he had yet to meet with CUPE officials and had not been personally told whether he received the endorsement. Moore said he was happy to have the labour council’s support and rejected Richardson’s comments that he does not support workers. “I don’t think I have ever turned my back on a union,� he said. “I have worked for the city as both a politician and a staff member for 17 years. I know many of these people and I have done many things to engage all of our staff.�

PoCo needs two new turf fields, says parks staff “Additional maintenance and capital expenditures on facilities that have a greater potential to meet user group needs and expectations will help alleviate the wear and tear

from heavy use.” The Field Sport Strategy report notes that while Port Coquitlam’s population remains relatively static, the city boasts a large population of

nicipalities, PoCo has a significantly higher number of people under the age of 19, the report added. Lifestyle chang es are also accounting for the increased use.

A growing number of residents, particularly woman, are participating in organized field sports and older adults are continuing to play well into their 30s, 40s and 50s.

Grant money issued Port Coquitlam councillors will consider a proposal that would see $5,000 in community cultural development grants doled out to two local organizations. City staff are recommending the healthy community committee approve a grant of $2,500 to the Friends of Leigh Square and another $2,500 to the Tri-Cities Community Television Society. A t h i r d g r o u p, ArtsConnect, has had its grant application deferred to a future meeting when more information regarding its proposal can be clarified, according to a report from Larry Wheeler, the city’s deputy director of parks and recreation. The Friends of Leigh Square is an organization that seeks to enhance the Leigh Square Community Arts Village; it received charitable status last year. The community group has hosted several arts shows, with its next event held in February to celebrate International Women’s Day. The Tri-Cities Community Television Society is a new grant recipient and provides promotional coverage of events in the area for Shaw Channel 4 and YouTube. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

A growing number of people involved in recreation activities matched with an increased expectation for field quality is putting stress on many of Port Coquitlam’s outdoor sports facilities. That is one of the conclusions in PoCo’s 2010 Sports Field Strategy, a report expected to be endorsed by the city’s healthy community committee this week. One of the recommendations includes building two new synthetic turf fields with lighting, which staff said could alleviate the pressure on service levels. The report also looks at removing low-use fields from the inventory in order to allow staff to focus more of its resources on maintaining high-demand sites. Overuse is also an issue, according to Ron Myers, the city’s manager of parks planning and design, because it can ruin the quality of the available fields. “Maintenance levels and funding of the

existing facilities are typical for the Lower Mainland but chronic overuse often eliminates facilities from the inventory, particularly during the winter months,” he wrote in a report.

Men charged with stealing FareSavers By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Two men face charges of stealing and trying to sell a huge number of TransLink FareSaver tickets that were supposed to be shredded. Patrick Robert Parry, 46, of Surrey, and James G o rd o n H e m e n w ay, 40, of Vancouver are alleged to have stolen about 80,000 of the prepaid transit tickets worth $153,000 that had been taken to the shredding firm where they worked, Transit Police said. They face theft and fraud charges and appear in Vancouver court in December. FareSavers come in books of 10 tickets and the ones missing were to be destroyed in the spring of 2010 because TransLink had just

Two men are facing charges after FareSavers destined for the shredder were stolen. raised transit fares. “They were selling them on the streets,” said Transit Police Insp. Brian MacDonald, the force’s acting deputy chief of operations. “We’re alle ging the two employees of the c o m p a ny s t o l e t h e FareSavers before they went into the shredder.” He estimated the two accused men stole “a couple of pallets” of FareSavers. Neither he nor TransLink would say how many tickets

had originally been sent for shredding or whether a larger number may have gone missing. TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie said the transportation authority will reconsider how it shreds tickets and other sensitive material. Some other agencies bring in a shredder to work on site rather than sending material out, he said. “It’s one of the things our risk management people will be looking at,” Hardie said. “If they are not satisfied that the current process is adequate, they’ll work up options.” MacDonald said possession of or dealing stolen FareSavers is an offence and passengers should only buy tickets from licensed dealers.

Union: violence on the rise at forensic hospital BCGEU says WCB standards not being met By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Violent incidents are on the rise at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam and the union representing staff members said more needs to be done to protect them. BC Gover nment Employees’ Union spokesperson Karen Tankard said FPH employees are dissatisfied with their employer’s efforts to implement recommendations put forward by WorkSafe BC following a vicious attack on a staff member in the summer. Two more assaults have occurred since the July incident and the employer’s efforts to ensure the health and safety of workers at the institution are inadequate, she said. “We believe the employer is not taking the issue of violence in the workplace seriously,” Tankard said. “The employer has a legal obligation to ensure that the workplace is safe. We want them to comply with the WCB recommendations and we want to be part of the dialogue when it comes to establishing a safe workplace.” The issue stems from an incident last summer when a patient fashioned a weapon out of a pair of reading glasses and stabbed a worker in the neck. In the at-

tack, the staff member received a fractured jaw and several teeth were loosened. He has twice received reconstructive surgery to his face and the union said further surgery is required. Tankard said there have been two more violent attacks since July and approximately 15 serious attacks on workers in the last six months. WorkSafe BC put forward six recommendations following the incident in the summer but Tankard said at least three of those have not been put in place. She said the employer h a s n o t d eve l o p e d proper training and education initiatives to assist workers in dealing with violence and there are no plans or procedures in place when an incident occurs. But Betty Kerray, the executive director of the Forensic Psychiatric Services Commission, disa g rees with the union’s assessment. She said a plan is in place and several corrective actions have been taken since WorkSafe issued its report and recommendations. “The safety and wellbeing of our health care team is of paramount importance at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital and a responsibility that the Provincial Health Services Authority takes very seriously,” she said in an email. She said that employees who have been affected by a violent incident at work are of-

fered support services, including a stress-management program. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

ParkLane plan gets approval Coqu quit itlam Current nt THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The creation of 26 single-family lots on Heritage Mountain that’s considered a neighbourhood blight by some and a model of suburban planning by others was approved by Port Moody council following a public hearing Tuesday. T h e d eve l o p m e n t north of Hickory Drive, Fer nway Drive and Cranberry Court will be the last neighbourhood to be developed by ParkLane Heritage Woods Development Ltd. on an area known as the Upland Reserve. While it was opposed

Partington plan put on hold

by some residents living in the area, including a few who wrote to council and others who showed up at the meeting concer ned about traffic, low water pressure and destruction to wildlife habitat, several environmental groups gave their support to the project. Ruth Foster of the Burrard Inlet Marine Enhancement Society called the development proposal a “model for careful development,” citing protections for water quality in West Noons Creek, the use of natural vegetation and a smaller footprint than one originally proposed to council.

Meghan Lahti because of concerns that residents’ issues weren’t resolved. Lahti said she wanted to see issues such as transit a n d t r a n s p o r t at i o n addressed first and Rockwell, agreed, saying, “There’s too many issues in the neighbourhood that need to be addressed.” But council approved third reading of the four bylaws necessary to move the project forward. “[ParkLane] have come back with a plan and it’s a solid one,” Coun. Diana Dilworth said. newsroom@tricitynews.com

By Janis Warren Coquitlam residents wanting to shape Burke M o u n t a i n’s n e we s t neighbourhood will have to wait until the new year to give feedback. T he city was expected to hold an open house this week on the Partington Creek Neighbourhood Plan but staff say because of additional studies related to development cost charge estimates and further preparation for options on the village core, the next public meeting will now be held early in 2012. “We are trying to get it right,” Mayor Richard Stewart said yesterday. “We are trying to make sure it’s going to be the jewel of Burke Mountain. It’s going to be the centre of that community.” The municipal election on Nov. 19 was not a factor in delaying the open house, he said. Up to 15,000 more residents are expected to call the Partington Creek neighbourhood home over the next 20 to 25 years, and it will have Burke’s only commercial zone. At the last open house for Partington Creek, held in June at Leigh elementary school, the city got mixed reviews on how that zone should develop: Some people pressed for towers to protect green spaces and sensitive lands while others urged a low-compact sprawl. Many homeowners have already moved into Burke’s other, lessdense neighbourhoods in Upper Hyde Creek, Lower Hyde Creek and Smiling Creek. The city is planning 25,000 more residents on Burke over the next 20 years.

The green groups, including the Port Moody Ecological Society, also supported the idea of turning 37 acres of the reserve into park. “I was just amazed,” said James Mattson, a water quality tester with the Noons Creek Hatchery who originally opposed the proposal. Elaine Golds, a spokesperson for the ecological society, said the park will protect forest and habitat, and preserve trails that are already in use in the community. But the project was opposed by councillors Karen Rockwell and

Orange pumpkins go in green waste Pumpkins may be orange but Por t Coquitlam residents should not be discouraged from throwing them away in their green waste bin after Halloween. The city is encouraging residents in more than 11,000 single-family and multi-family homes to place their jack-o’-lanter ns with their food scraps and ya r d t r i m m i n g s t o avoid sending it to the landfill. PoCo engineering staf f estimate that if even a quarter of the homes put their pumpkins in the green waste bin, it would divert more than 25,000 pounds of material from the landfill, saving the city and taxpayers costly tipping fees. The city also sugg ests several other things people can do with their pumpkins after Oct. 31.

Like squash, a pumpkin is edible and tasty and the seeds can be roasted. They can also be chopped into pieces and placed in the backyard compost or buried in the garden (www. portcoquitlam.ca/composting). But having an environmentally friendly H a l l owe e n e x t e n d s beyond composting a pumpkin. Residents are encouraged to re-use and recycle as much as possible when making costumes and putting out decorations. Children can also be supplied with reusable bags for collecting candy and treats that are given out to visitors should have a minimum of packaging.

AirCare testing to continue for another year in Metro AirCare vehicle emission tests will continue for at least one more year in the Lower Mainland. The provincial government still hasn’t made a final decision on whether

to continue the program for several more years, so TransLink extended the contract with its provider until the end of 2012. “In the absence of any direction from them all

we could do is extend it for another year,” AirCare general manager David Gourley said. A multi-agency review committee last year recommended renewing AirCare for at

least another five years, citing the program’s continuing pollutioncontrol benefits. Those benefits aren’t as big as in the past, because new cars have become steadily cleaner,

but the review warned scrapping the program would risk air quality. Metro Vancouver’s board last year called for an extension of AirCare to at least 2020, and that it expand to target emis-

Recycling depots & fees for appliances

Small electrical appliances from toasters to electric toothbrushes can now be returned for recycling to depots across the region. And the service means buyers of new electrical goods are now paying an extra eco-fee to subsidize the costs of collection, transportation and recycling. A large microwave oven will now cost $10 more, while an extra $2.25 recycling fee is now added to the price of new toasters and blenders. See unpluggedrecycling.ca for a full list of fees, accepted products and depot locations or call 1-800-667-4321. Organizers of the Unplugged prog ram predict it will divert two million small appliances from landfills. It’s the latest in a growing set of take-back programs in B.C. where manufacturers and retailers are required by the province to set up depots to collect and recycle old items, while consumers pay recycling fees to cover the costs. jnagel@blackpress.ca

Something fishy at Hoy More than a thousand people hit the Hoy Creek Hatchery last Sunday to celebrate the annual return of the salmon. “This has been easily the most well attended Salmon Come Home event,” said Rodney Lee, president of the Hoy/Scott Watershed society. “The public definitely took full advantage of the weather to attend”. The family friendly event, which promotes public awareness about the spawning salmon that migrate back to Coquitlam, featured a variety of salmon and nature oriented activities. The prime viewing time for the salmon returning to Hoy Creek and other local watercourses is through early November. But Tri-City residents are urged to not bother the salmon and, if they’re walking their dogs along trails, to keep the canines out of creeks and rivers. jgauthier@tricitynews.com

Top left, Hoy Creek Hatchery manager Niall Williams shows a salmon from the creek to people attending the Salmon Come Home Festival last weekend. Attendees also saw some smaller fish, as shown (top right and right) by Rodney Lee, president of the Hoy/Scott Watershed Society. Above, children’s performer Angela Brown tells stories about the environment inside a giant inflatable salmon.

Be careful with heating work: BBB Divorce e

T he cool autumn weather has arrived and, for many people, now is the ideal time to have your furnace serviced or upgraded before the busy winter season starts. In a recent press release, the Better Business Bureau serving British Columbia and the Yukon warns the public to be cautious about misleading heating contractors that may use scare tactics to convince homeowners to buy a new furnace or authorize expensive, but unneeded, repairs to their existing heating system. Last fall, the BBB received complaints about a heating contractor making unsolicited phone calls offering inexpensive, even free, cleaning services, only to show up with inadequate equipment and recommendations for expensive and unnecessary upgrades. BBB has also received reports in the past of fraudulent contractors soliciting door-todoor and attempting to

frighten consumers into purchasing a new heating system with warnings that their current system was leaking dangerous gases that could explode or poison those inside the house. Last year, BBB received 61 complaints against businesses in this industry. So far this year, BBB has already received 71 complaints. Before you choose a heating contractor, BBB urges you to consider the following tips: First, find helpful information like owners, company addresses, and customer service information by visiting the company’s reliability report at www.mbc.bbb. org. Then, hire heating contractors that: • are licensed with the BC Safety Authority (call 1-866-566-7233); • are or employ certified gas fitters; • are bonded and insured for liability and property damage; • can provide you a copy of the gas permit authorizing the company to work on your

heating system; • offer warranties that cover equipment, materials and labour; • offer maintenance and service after installation and after warranties have expired; • provide customer references. Get at least two estimates for any work and all bids should be in writing and provide a full description of the services to be provided and the

materials to be used. As well, you should compare more than just cost. Check the size and rated efficiency of the equipment each contractor recommends. Ask each contractor how they arrived at recommending a particular sized system. Check the warranty offered and make certain you understand it. Finally, BBB urges consumers to report

misleading door-todoor sales practices and notes direct sales contracts can be cancelled for any reason within 10 days of the consumer receiving a copy of the contract. Consumer Protection BC can help with allegations of misleading door-to-door sales practices. For complaints, call 1-888-564-9963 or go to www.consumerprotectionbc.ca.

omewhere, a wolf howled. But the moon was dark. A squirrel chattered and leaped out of its tree. But it was night. And a tree swayed and groaned in a rhythm, when not a breath of wind whispered through the night. The tree seemed alive, moaning, dancing, and singing to the night with creaks and rustles. After the wolf and the squirrel, all the animals of the forest were silent. Only the lone tree continued to sway and shake its branches with a beat. But why? The roots of the tree were curled into a fist, and at the base of them, lay a stone. It was upright, more like a slab than anything else. The edges were smooth and straight,

The humid heat weighed down on her body, choking her lungs, drowning her. The bottoms of her feet were torn, leaving crimson foot prints on the smouldering pavement. It was coming for her, she knew it. She felt it. It crawled on her skin and trickled into her veins, clawing at her will to live. It promised her peace. It promised her safety and solace in place of her distress. It swore to her the pain would only last a moment, and then she’d fade away to oblivion. But she couldn’t give in, not now. She’d run too far, suffered too much. She used her shoulder to ram open the door of a house, not caring that she’d probably woken the people inside. The revenant thing chasing her howled like a gale storm, like the hunt was exciting it. And, it was hunting her, chasing her like a wolf through the forest and the street, playing with her. She couldn’t see

sockets and I can tell she’s beginning to doubt herself, thinking she should have stuck to a well-known route instead. As she consults her map for the fiftieth time, her partner pushes ahead into the rank tunnel, exclaiming at his discovery of a row of lanterns faintly lighting the way. “Wait!” she shouts after him, voice uneven. He ignores her, eager to explore more, high on the seductive thrill of danger. The girl tries to chase after him but trips over the uneven ground, her flashlight sailing out of her hand and its batteries scattering across the floor. Her side of the tunnel is thrown into near darkness — even better. She curses and searches for the batteries but, grasping nothing, gives up with a sigh and commits her second blunder: she takes a break to collect her wits. From where I sit I can see her rummage through her rucksack and pull out a flask. Greedily drinking its contents, she doesn’t seem to notice that she’s resting atop a pile of skeletons — bones that aren’t like the others. They aren’t mouldered and sunken, disfigured or ancient. No... they’re fresh. And as I creep out of my hiding place giddy with anticipa-

tion, lantern swinging in hand, she lets out a startled shriek. But when she squints against the light and makes out my form, sees that I’m human like her and not an avenging revenant of any sort, her face fills with relief. Her third — and last — mistake. The brain is my least favourite part, so I begin with it first. Next are the intestines, then the liver. I save her heart, succulent and warm, for last. Once my hunger is satisfied, I slip back into the shadows, drunk on the knowledge that in a few days the headlines will be splashed across every newspaper in town: how another teenager went missing in the catacombs; how her friends searched and searched but couldn’t find her. The tale of an adventure gone wrong would be touted by police as a warning to all those who seek to escape the boundaries of the city and retreat underground. But no one will ever imagine the truth. While waiters above bus tables of flirting couples, and tourists snake in and out of high-end boutiques, the people of Paris remain unaware of the terror pulsing beneath their feet. And as their forefathers’ bones rot into oblivion, the remains of their children pile up in the darkness.

but the top was rounded. Once there were words carved into the face of the stone. But now it was weathered, and windblown back into a smooth slab of cold rock. Only one word was discernible. Mors. CRACK! The tree fell backwards; it’s swaying finally succeeded to push it over. Knocked backwards, the roots reached skyward, taking huge chunks of the earth’s flesh with it. The falling of the tree peeled apart the land’s skin, revealing the horror underneath it. Bones. Every single one on top of the other, piled neatly, and fit together like a puzzle. In a way, it was beautiful. A work of art from human remains. The grinning skulls seemed like whitish blobs in the darkness. It was a catacomb, hidden underneath the tree for who knows how long. Then, something floated out of the bones. What could it be? It had a translucent look to it, and was the same colour as the bones. Except these were not bones. If not, what were they? Revenants of the past? Soon an army of the translucent things had gathered, like a cloud of smoke.

They looked… human, almost. Like phantasms of mortals. They were strange things. Some held their heads under arms, or had no legs but still floated. Finally, out of a mound of skulls, a final spectre rose. It’s jaw was hanging loose, and it frequently had to push it’s jaw back up. It clicked and rasped, and the other apparitions nodded. Then the crowd dispersed, each one flying off in a different direction. They whistled, and sang, like the tree. They flew into dark houses and crept into the minds of sleeping mortals, hungry for vengeance for their loss. The creatures fed off fear and rasped in delight when their victims tossed and turned, sweating. When the night was out, and the stars due to set, the apparitions returned to the tree. They all clicked and clacked, crowing of their wonderful feast. The spectre with the loose jaw beckoned, and all the others followed it back into the ground. The tree creaked again and righted itself, as if nothing had ever happened that night. Besides, who would believe that moonless night, the dead were awakened once more?

it, but she could feel it, feel the icy grasp of its smoky tendrils wrap around her mind even now as she stood in the house of strangers, her fingers fumbling to flick on the hallway light. She just had to get to the light. It couldn’t get her in the light. The light was sanctuary. Safety. That much she knew. That much she felt. When the light finally illuminated the room, her pounding heart began to slow. She’d lived. She’d escaped most certain doom. Slowly, she sank down to the ground of a random house, letting her head roll to the side as her eyes began to fall closed. She’d run for miles, through the brambles and the tree branches, the concrete and broken glass. For a moment, she almost laughed as the thought that this was just a phantasm slipped into her mind. Nevertheless, now she could rest. It couldn’t reach her in the light. The light went out. Her eyes snapped open. The door slammed closed. A howl resounded through the empty halls. Her heart took off again. There was no way it could’ve found her. No way could it have passed through the light. Years of being its captive had taught her that much. see BUT U FEAR ITSELF, S , page g A31 3

estless dreams flooded her mind; she was walking through a deserted city, black and dilapidated buildings encircling her. Old and torn newspapers quivered in the wind, the printed stories fading with age. Her sneakers made a trail through the curled-up leaves, as she walked through the unknown city. It seemed as if she was the last living person on Earth, as if Earth was a vacated apartment building. Dwelling on the thought, she heard a slight crunch under her bare feet. She looked down to investigate and saw the head of a decomposing raven under the balls of her feet. Her lips curled in disgust and as she bent down to wipe her foot clean, she felt an eerie sensation wash over her. She stopped, mid-swipe, a cloud of air emerging from her lips. She slowly raised her head, searching for where the feeling had come from. A young boy stood near her. He gazed at her; his soulless eyes seemed to never end. He held a lolling

porcelain doll, the head dismembered from the body. His hand moved slightly, beckoning her forward. She took one step forward and then another ’til she stood before him. She stood there contemplating what this boy was doing in her dream. Perhaps he was a revenant? He brought a finger up to his pale lips, silencing her thoughts. He let go of her hand which had since turned cold. He turned around and began to walk away, his head bobbing along to a silent tune. “Wait!” she called, running after him. The phantasm was a figure in the distance now, and she sped up to catch up with him. After running tirelessly, she encountered the boy sitting on the steps of a stone building. His gaze was focused on something above his head. She followed his gaze upwards to a sign. It read: Aunt Mildred’s Home for Lost Children. Her stare eased down to the boy sitting on the steps. Not meeting her stare, the boy stood and walked into the depths of the orphanage. She took a step forward, the crumbling stairs creaking under her weight. The dark submerged her therefore she thrust her hands blindly against the walls, searching, when she spotted a light emanating from what seemed to be the catacombs of the orphanage. see THE ORPHANAGE, O G , page g A31 3

THIRD PLACE, 15 TO 18 YEARS KLEO FANG, 17, COQUITLAM

THIRD PLACE, 11 TO 14 YEARS JEREMY FELL, L 12, POCO

Like the Wind

The Black Apparitions

THE RULES The rules for the Scary Story writing contest, which was open to Tri-City residents 11 to 18 years old, were as follows: each entry must be an original story no longer than 500 words and contain the following three words: revenant, phantasm and catacombs. Cash prizes go to the writers of the top three entries in each age category: $75 for first place, $50 for second and $25 for third. Judges included Coquitlam Public Library and Tri-City Newss staff. And those words?

DEFINITIONS

revenant: “a person who has returned, esp. supposedly from the dead.” phantasm: “a figment of the imagination; an illusion or apparition.” catacombs: “an underground cemetery consisting of a subterranean gallery with recesses for tombs, as constructed by the ancient Romans. [Also] an underground construction resembling or compared to such a cemetery.”

T

he guards were after him. He clutched the amethyst pendant tightly against his chest, as he ran away from the museum and blaring alarms, and towards the church. The frigid night air turned his breath to frost as he reached the gothic style building. The man jumped the iron picket fence, and sprinted around to the back. Set into the brick wall of the church was a stone door; he hastily opened it and bounded down the staircase beyond, the sound of his boots echoing up to the churchyard. Engraved in the door was a single word: Catacombs. The man navigated the twisting corridors with ease, evidence of past visits, until he turned into a large gallery. The walls were lined with tombs, and bones, cracked with age, were scattered across the dirt floor. In the centre stood a stone table, which he approached. He placed the amulet upon it, then produced from his belt a dagger: its hilt pure obsidian, its blade a mysterious metal that emitted an emerald aura around it. He turned to face his pursuers and smiled. He had no teeth, and where his tongue should have been was a bloody stump. He brought the dagger down, shattering the purple jewel. The two museum guards instantly dropped dead, the mere presence of the released phantasm killing them. Black mist curled out from the broken amethyst pendant, forming a vague humanoid shape. The ghost snatched the glowing dagger and swiftly cut the man’s throat. Its hand then wrenched out the dead man’s eyes, and from his sockets more mist poured out, forming a second revenant. The man’s body, now released from possession, began to shrivel up, as the two black apparitions disappeared through the catacomb wall. In the church’s highest tower, two shapes, darker than the night itself, passed by, as the bell rang, signalling midnight.

BUT FEAR ITSELF continued from page A30 She’d escaped the cage she’d thought to be her catacomb, thinking she could outsmart it. How could it have found her? How could it have turned off the light? She saw it slink out from around the corner, misty tendrils of smoke crawled towards her from the blackness. This time she didn’t move. She couldn’t. The smoke wrapped tightly around her throat and whispered softly in the back of her mind, taunting her feeble attempt at freedom with a sweet poison of false promises. “Don’t worry” it told her as the world began to fade from her eyes “we’ll take good care of you.”

THE ORPHANAGE continued from page A30 Her feet shuffled across the dust-covered floor, leaving footprints until she reached the end of a hallway. The steel frame of a bed was visible, and instantly she had the urge to lie down. When she lay down, voices whispered in her ears: “You are tired. You want to fall asleep. Go to sleep, go to sleep.” As she closed her eyes, the last object she saw was a blade moving swiftly towards her neck. “The body of sixteen year old Ava Wilde was found yesterday morning after her parents reported her disappearance. Her body was found in the now closed Aunt Mildred’s Home for Lost Children, although the head was missing....”

reak, weirdo, creepy; those were only a few of the names she had been called all her life. No matter where she ran or hid, a group of cruel and merciless children would always wait to mock and ridicule her. It really wasn’t her fault that she was so strange. Her parents often explained, with great regret, that everything was entirely their fault. “Darling, don’t feel bad,” her mother would say as she held her daughter to her chest. “Your father and I were visiting your grandmother’s grave when I went into labour. I delivered you over the ashes of the dead in the catacombs of Italy. Maybe my actions incurred their wrath.” But of course, this was of little comfort to the bullied child. Small and built like a sapling, the girl made a perfect target for bullies. She was pale and sickly looking, her skin gray under the light. Her eyes were almost colourless, and so terribly sad. She had no friends, and was far too soft spoken and introverted to speak up in her own defence. The other kids saw this, and fell upon her like hungry wolves over a chunk of particularly juicy meat. Sometimes, the bullying got so bad she found herself hiding in the local cemetery. That was the one place the other kids would never follow her to. They were too scared of revenants and phantasms creeping from the tombstones and pulling their victims back with them to hell. That suited her just fine. She felt no fear from ghosts and creatures of the night. At times, she even wished for them to take her to the land of the dead. After all, it wasn’t as if it could be any worse than the life she is living on earth. So when the mysterious voices started whispering in her ear, she was not concerned. If a spirit from the grave wished to communicate with her, then she was willing to listen. She grew, if that was even possible, more withdrawn from the world around her. Her parents noticed a change. They began to experience constant nightmares, of a cloaked stranger coming to lead their daughter away. They would wake up drenched in cold sweat and deeply shaken. However, it wasn’t until they started to see a shadow of a figure hovering behind their daughter that they began to really take the dreams seriously. They were willing to do anything they could to defend daughter from the dead. They were not going to lose her. The authorities wrote it off as suicide. Another victim lost to the crime of bullying; and another family torn apart by the death of a child. What they couldn’t explain however, was the lack of physical wounds on a perfectly healthy child. It was as if her soul simply departed, leaving nothing more than a shell behind; to rot in a world where she and others like herself, would never belong.

Diabetes tips for Halloween â&#x20AC;˘ Pumpkins and parties: Halloween celebrations arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all about food. Why not take your child to the pumpkin patch and show them how to carve a traditional jack oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lantern? Use it as an opportunity to throw a Halloween

party for them and their friends. Moderate their sugar intake by serving healthy snacks like roasted pumpkin seeds that they can enjoy while they have some â&#x20AC;&#x153;frightfulâ&#x20AC;? fun. â&#x20AC;˘ Make a healthy meal part of the deal: Eating

a balanced meal including vegetables and protein before heading out for Halloween fun will make children less likely to snack on their goodies while they trick or treat. For more information and diabetes resources, visit www.diabetes.ca.

Canadian Diabetes Association offers the following tips for turning trick-or-treating into healthy eating this Halloween: â&#x20AC;˘ Sort through the stash: After trick-ortreating, have children go through their bounty and pick out their favourite sweets. Ration them out evenly with snacks or after meals. Halloween treats also make a great addition to packed school lunches. A good â&#x20AC;&#x153;trickâ&#x20AC;? is to pick their least favourite candy for school so that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get eaten on the way to the school bus. â&#x20AC;˘ It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be sweet to be a treat: Nobody wants to be the parent who gives out toothbrushes but instead of giving out candy or chips, set an example in your neighbourhood and give out non-food treats like yoyos, temporary tattoos, magic tricks and dollar store gags. â&#x20AC;˘ Walk, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive: Staying active is important for any childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development and to help maintain a healthy body weight. Instead of driving through your neighbourhood to trickor-treat, walk with your child or offer to walk with several of their friends.

Better to give than receive this Halloween By Jennifer Gauthier THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Cheyenne Crant won’t be requesting treats when she goes door-todoor next Monday evening for Halloween. The 12-year-old would rather receive non-perishable food items. The Grade 7 Kwayhquitlum middle school student will be collecting donations for the Share food bank for the second year in a row as a part of the Free the Children’s Halloween for Hunger campaign. “I want to make it that no one’s really hungry,” she said, adding, “I know that is not going to happen overnight.” Crant is hoping to surpass her tally from last year, when she collected a thousand pounds of food using donation bins at local supermarkets, and a further 352 pounds by trick-or-treating on Halloween with the help of her parents. “It makes a huge impact for us at this time of year,” said Heather Scott of Share Family and Community Services. “The food bank currently has two weeks worth of food and we are low on staple items.” The food bank is seeking donations of nutritious items such as canned fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, and healthy items for breakfasts and children’s lunches. Crant won’t be alone collecting non-perishable food items instead

of candy. For the second year in a row, Mountain Meadows elementary’s “Miracle Kids” will be canvassing in the Noons Creek area of Port Moody on Halloween. Last year, Mountain Meadows students collected 748 lb. of food. And overall, Tri-City schools participating in Halloween for Hunger in 2010 collected over 2,500 lb. of food for Share. “Share is g reatly thankful for all of the assistance from Cheyenne and Tri-City schools,” said Scott. “Because of the community donations, we can continue to provide food relief in the Tri-Cities.” Crant will be soliciting donations from shoppers at the Save-On Foods in Coquitlam on Saturday and she is looking for more kids to participate to help reach her goal of 2,000 lb. “We might get free candy on Halloween,” she noted, “but other kids might not get any food.” • Donations can also be dropped off at Share (2615 Clarke St., Port Moody) on Mondays from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m, and Tuesdays through F r i d ay s, f ro m 9 : 3 0 a.m. to 4 p.m. Grocery stores throughout the Tri-Cities also have donation bins for the food bank. To make a financial donation, call 604-540-9161, visit www. sharesociety.ca or send a cheque to 200-25 King Edward St., Coquitlam, B.C., V5K 4F8. jgauthier@tricitynews.com

ARTHRITIS

Cash for candy?

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Cheyenne Crant has installed a donation bin for non-perishable items at the Save-On Foods in Coquitlam, benefiting the Share food bank.

A local chiropractor will pay children for their Halloween candy and turn the loot over to a Vancouver church for distribution to female drug addicts. Ali Amiri said the sugar that can give children a temporary high can also quell drug cravings for people struggling with heroin or cocaine addiction. “It helps them get off the drugs,” said Amiri, who will pay children $2 per pound for their Halloween candy during a buy-back program at his office Nov. 1 from 3 to 7 p.m. He will also be collecting donations and will match them dollar for dollar to support the global children’s charity Compassion Canada. Children who hand over their Halloween goodies will also get a healthy treat made of chocolate that has no sugar or gluten or other additives, and will get a chance to enter a draw for an iPod. T h e ow n e r o f C o q u i t l a m Fa m i ly Chiropractic said the goal of the candy buyback is to reduce some of the health effects of candy consumption among children. “There are so many negative side effects with candy, and our childhood obesity rates are skyrocketing like never before. We want to keep families as healthy as possible,” Amiri said. • Coquitlam Family Chiropractic is located in the Royal Bank Building, 2885 Barnet Hwy (Suite 210), Coquitlam.

Online experiences can CHRONIC PAIN carry over to classroom MANAGEMENT WORKSHOPS By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Today’s students are an alien species connected by invisible tentacles but a former educator and blogger says teachers should harness this hyper-connectedness, not discourage it. David Warlick, the creator of Citation Machine, an attribution website that makes writing bibliographies a snap, took his protechnolog y message to teachers during last F r i d ay ’s C o m p u t e r Using Educators of BC conference at Terry Fox secondary school in Port Coquitlam. Warlick used the alien imagery to describe today’s wired students but was speaking to a converted crowd of teachers who took notes, linked to his website and tweeted his message on laptops and smart phones during the keynote address. A picture of alien teenagers tethered to their smart phones and online games generated laughs but Warlick’s message to teachers was for them to “hack” into students’ online experience and use some of the same strategies to inspire learning. Teachers should encourage students to answer self-generated questions and make

David Warlick, the creator of an attribution website that makes writing bibilographies easy, talks to local teachers about the important role technology plays in the classroom. classroom tasks more responsive, just as a text message provides immediate feedback. Warlick contended that various technologies in use today are not just “distractions” but tools for generating ideas and inspiring creativity. “Be a master learner,”

HBMB!3122

Warlick urged, advocating that teachers model questioning behaviour by admitting “I don’t know the answer to that question but I will find out.” He said there are intrinsic qualities to kids’ online experiences that could be incorporated

into education. Video and online games, for example, provide immediate feedback, put u p ch a l l e n g e s t h at m u s t b e ove r c o m e through collaboration and critical thinking, and reward players for the time they invest in the game. To illustrate his point, Warlick offered several examples where students were rewarded for their work, not by marks, but by peer responses — and even cash, in the case of a class that wrote a science lab manual and sold it online for $20. “The point is, they put time into it because there was value,” Warlick said. He also suggested educators find ways t o i n c o r p o r at e f u n and whimsy into their teaching and encourage students to make mistakes because that’s how they learn. Describing his own learning and teaching experience as “information poor” because of the limits placed by textbooks and classroom walls, Warlick said today’s students have “no ceiling” because information is abundant and teachers should do everything in their power to foster curiosity rather than discourage it. dstrandberg @tricitynews.com

*The Amica HELPING HANDS Community Program raises funds throughout the year for less fortunate seniors. Every dollar raised at this very important event through ticket sales, live and silent auctions and a host of fun fundraising activities throughout the evening is donated directly to seniors living below the poverty line. Since the Amica HELPING HANDS Community Program was founded in 2002 by a group of dedicated Amica Mature Lifestyles, Inc. employees who saw a need to raise awareness and funds to help underprivileged seniors across Canada, the Charity has raised and donated close to $1 million to this much needed cause.

There’s more to bulbs than just tulips IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter Number 1 imported bulb is the tulip but gladiolas are right behind it

M

ore than 116 million Dutch flower bulbs have made their way this fall into Canadian garden stores, import warehouses and greenhouse coolers. As a matter of fact, Canada is the ninth largest Dutch bulb importing country in the world. I’m sure it would be no surprise if I were to tell you that tulips are the number one bulb we import. You might be interested to hear that gladiolas are right behind and then, way down in quantities but still important, are lilies, hyacinths, narcissus, irises, crocuses, amaryllis, dahlias, freesias and anemones. The high numbers of some of these bulbs may seem rather odd to the home gardener, but don’t forget, many of these bulbs such as lilies, irises and freesias are grown-on by greenhouse operators for cut flower production. It is, however, becoming more apparent to me each year that we are overlooking some of the very finest bulbs, and they are right under our noses.

We always plant tulips, daffodils and hyacinths while ignoring other bulbs which are actually better long-term investments. A visit to Keukenhof, Holland’s famous spring garden, opened my eyes to the use of minor bulbs. Muscari (grape hyacinths) were used very effectively as borders, underplantings and as drifts of colour under trees and shrubs. Many varieties were incorporated into the gardens but ‘Muscari armeniacum’ was, by far, the most impressive for mass displays. Smaller pockets shone with fabulous long lasting perennial varieties like the white M. album, the soft blue ‘Valerie Finnis’, the bicolour M. latifolium, the feathery M. comosum ‘Plumosum’ and the new pink one, ‘Pink Sunrise’. Muscari are hardy in all zones and will tolerate little or no water in summer. This makes them ideal for plantings under large trees where moisture is often a problem. They prefer full sun or partial shade. These bulbs look very effective when mass planted by themselves or used as a contrast with other spring blooming perennials, bulbs or flowering shrubs. Muscari are long-lasting, have great weather tolerance, and they don’t look messy as do so many other bulbs when they finish flowering. Most gardeners plant and enjoy lots of the standard yellow, white, blue and striped cro-

cus, but the sweetly scented species varieties are being overlooked. Crocus chrysanthus provide us with some of the most beautiful and interesting crocus colours. They naturalize well and thrive in sun or light shade. They are most effective used in mass plantings in rockeries, borders, lawns and between stepping stones. You will find the species varieties are more free flowering. The old fashioned bluebells that so many European folks ask for are actually scillas or squills. All of them flower in clusters on leafless stalks and have either bell-shaped or star-like flowers. I like them best planted in informal groupings among shrubs, deciduous trees or low-growing perennials. They are great in pots too and you know, scillas make lovely cut flowers for tiny bouquets.

Scilla siberica seems to be the most popular because of its intense blue, three to six inch flower spikes. If you can find it, Scilla tubergeniana is also popular because it blooms very early with the snowdrops. If, perchance, you are looking for old fashioned English bluebells (Scilla nutans), they’re a lot easier to find now. They are very long lasting and do well in partial shade. The real sleeper in all the minor bulbs is Anemone blanda. These look for all the world like miniature daisies, and I was absolutely in awe when I saw how they were being used in Keukenhof Gardens. The variety called ‘White Splendor’ was used in massive borders and underplantings with virtually every type of tulip and narcissus that blooms during their long flowering period. Their white colour tended to lift all the other colours, and when contrasted with the rich green lawns, they were sensational. Anemone blanda comes in many colours, but the new varieties ‘Blue Shades’, ‘Pink Star’ and ‘White Splendor’ have lovely bright colours. The mixed varieties look great too. You will find these anemones most pleasing when you plant them under Japanese azaleas, dwarf rhododendrons and Japanese maples. There are many other little minor bulbs we have yet to discover, but I suggest you give the ones I’ve mentioned a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Johansen jolts Wings for 1st NHL goal ‘Great feeling’ for Port Moody native By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Hardly a work of art, Ryan Johansen’s first ever National Hockey League goal served a couple other very significant purposes Tuesday. It painted the Columbus Blue Jackets into the win column for the first time in nine games this regular season, and it came against one of the NHL’s most decorated teams, the Detroit Red Wings. And, as much as anything, that brought a colourful smile to Johansen’s face. “It wouldn’t have felt as good if we had lost again,” the 19-year-old Port Moody native said via the Blue Jackets team website. “This is definitely a great feeling. “We have to make IN QUOTES sure we’re in the right spots against a team like Detroit, and we made sure we were doing that tonight.” Johansen scored on a Columbus powerplay when he corralled a point shot off the end boards behind the Detroit net and his quick foreRandall Johansen hand shot bounced in off an unsuspecting Red Wings goalie Ty Conklin, snapping a 1-1 deadlock and proving the game winner at 8:56 of the first period. Earlier, he assisted on R.J. Umberger’s game-opening tally, giving Johansen three points in his five appearances thus far with the Jackets, who had seven defeats and a shootout loss entering their battle with Detroit. Johansen was rumored to be on his way back to the Western Hockey League’s Portland Winterhawks once he hit the nine NHL games maximum permitted to a junior-eligible rookie but his exact status remains in limbo, his dad Randall Johansen told The Tri-City News on Wednesday. “Things are a lot better than they were,” Randall said, acknowledging that Ryan’s shifts per game have increased from 11 in each of his first two NHL tilts to 20 and 25 his last two outings, in which he’s recorded his three points on a goal and two helpers. “I think he’s playing better. He’s six-foot-three and has gained 10 pounds [over summer], so he can handle the crashing and banging. “I think he’s ready [to stick in the NHL] but I’m his dad so I don’t count when it comes to making that decision.” Randall said Ryan intentionally –– and successfully –– intended to carom the puck in off Conklin on his momentous marker. “That’s what he was trying to do,” Randall said. “He saw the goalie cheating and tried to bank it on off him. It doesn’t matter how it goes in, it counts and that’s all that matters.” Johansen was the fourth overall choice by the Blue Jackets in the 2010 NHL draft and racked up 92 points, including 40 goals, with the Winterhawks last campaign. He also notched nine points in seven games with Canada’s silver-medallist squad at last winter’s World Junior Championships in Buffalo, N.Y.

“I think he’s ready [to stick in the NHL] but I’m his dad so I don’t count when it comes to making that decision.”

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS

Port Moody product Ryan Johansen flips the puck in while skating up ice for the Columbus Blue Jackets versus the Detroit Red Wings in an NHL game Tuesday in Ohio. Johansen, 19, netted his first ever NHL goal – one that also proved to be the game winner.

Still in synch after all these years By Mario Bartel BLACK PRESS

D

isa Fladmark and Brittany Tonello are old-timers. Not something vivacious young women who aren’t yet 31 years old like to hear. But in the world of synchronized swimming, where most competitors have retired or moved on to other sports by the time they graduate high school, Fladmark, 30, and Tonello, 26, are wet and wiley veterans. Fladmark, who’s originally from Port Moody but now lives in North Burnaby, has been swimming synchro since she was 13 years old. Tonello, a Burnaby North grad, discovered the sport when she was nine. Swimming at the same club in Coquitlam, they bonded and started competing as a duet. They’ve been together ever since, through high school graduation, beyond a break while Tonello studied nursing, through get-

ting established in careers, relationships. Now swimming out of the Fraser Valley Masters synchronized swim club at the SFU pool, they compete at the Masters level. They recently retur ned from the US Masters C h a m p i o n s h i p s i n Ro s ev i l l e, California with three gold medals. Next June they’ll travel to Riccione, Italy to compete at the FINA World Masters Championships. Fladmark and Tonello credit their enduring partnership to a fast friendship that goes beyond their similar physiques and swimming styles. While the latter scores them points with judges, it’s the former that keeps them coming to the pool for at least 10 hours a week, plus dryland endurance and strength training. This past summer they both trained for and competed together in a triathlon. MARIO BARTEL/BLACK PRESS

Disa Fladmark and Brittany Tonello have endured as a duet in synchronized swimming for more than 12 years.

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER PLAYERS of the WEEK

THE ALL NEW

HYUN JUN LEE

RACHEL GARRETT

Coquitlam Metro-Ford Sparta

Coquitlam Metro-Ford Chargers

HYUN JUN LEE, of the Under 17 Sparta, has allowed only goal in the first 4 BCSPL games this season with some outstanding goalkeeping, leading his team to an impressive 3-1-0 record. Hyun Jun Lee also turned in some remarkable performances in Sparta’s recent Under 16 National championships in Lethbridge, Alberta. In Sparta’s first game—against the defending champions, Edmonton Juventus—Hyun Jun not only made a phenomenal save on a penalty kick, but he also scored a goal on a long-range drop-kick! At the end of the competition, Sparta claimed the bronze medal and Hyun Jun Lee was named the team’s MVP. For his outstanding performances during the last few weeks, HYUN JUN LEE has been selected as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Male Player of the Week!

The Under 15 Chargers played against the defending Provincial Cup champions—Surrey United—without a couple of their starters. RACHEL GARRETT rose to the challenge and she turned in a remarkable performance at her right back position. Rachel’s timely and tenacious tackling stymied the vaunted Surrey attackers time after time. She also contributed immensely to Metro-Ford’s lone goal as she blasted a long-range shot towards the Surrey goal, a shot that the keeper saved only to have Hope Dueck pick up the rebound and score the opening goal. Unfortunately, Surrey was able to claim the victory with two late goals! For her outstanding performance this past week, RACHEL GARRETT has been named Coquitlam Metro-Ford Female Player of the Week.

Puck camp pair

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Rhyse Tang of the Tri-City Predators stickhandles during a Peewee female hockey game Sunday against Langley at Coquitlam Planet Ice.

Coquitlam Express forwards Alex Petan and Alex Kerfoot were among 34 players chosen to attend the Canada West selection camp in preparation for the 2011 World Junior ‘A ‘Challenge, Hockey Canada announced Wednesday. The camp is scheduled to run Saturday through Monday at the Langley Events Centre, the same venue that will host the Challenge tournament from Nov. 7-13. The 34 players will be divided into two teams –– Red and White –– and will play a pair of intrasquad games, in addition to daily practices. Players named to the Canada West selection camp roster were selected from the CJHL’s five western Junior A leagues: the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL), Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) and Superior International Junior Hockey League (SIJHL). Canada West will play in Group A, joined by Sweden and the United States, while Canada East, the Czech Republic and Russia will comprise Group B. Preliminary round play will run until Wednesday, Nov. 9, with both semifinals taking place Friday, Nov. 11. The gold medal game is set for Sunday, Nov. 13.

‘We’re more competitive now than when we were younger’ – Fladmark continued from page 57

“Our personalities mesh well,” says Disa, who exterminates mosquitoes when she’s not upside down under water. Being in sync out of the water helps them stay in sync when they’re in the pool, says Brittany. “We’ve always trusted each other.” That trust is important when they’re choreographing and executing their routines.

They spend hours scouring Youtube videos from synchro competitions around the world to stay on top of trends that are winning favour with the judges. They draw inspiration for their moves from art, dance, music and Cirque du Soleil performances. On the pool deck, they’ll translate their research into manoeuvres, before trying them out in the pool. Currently judges are awarding points for joined elements and high lifts out of the

After all, one of the competitors at the US Nationals was 93 years old.

We want to stand out from the other competitors, make our routines more intricate.” Disa says they’re up to the challenge. “We’re more competitive now than when we were younger.” But since the goals they set, and the commitment they make to attain those goals, are

Casting one trick to bagging beastly tyee TIGHT LINES Jeff Weltz Hunt to find the right water Occasionally, I have been asked how I managed to lure and land tyee –– spring salmon weighing 30 pounds or more –– in streams with my fly rod. I must admit there

was a learning curve, as well as the challenge of coming up with a fly pattern and the proper equipment to do the job. There were heavy weight big-game rods available but the thought of battling one of those beasts, for six hours or more, was at first unappealing. I opted to assess workable strategies. My first clue came from HaigBrown’s writings in his book, Fisherman’s Fall. “Then I was over the

tyee... great, powerful, bronze fish of 30 and 40 and 50 pounds, scattering in every direction from my drift… all concentrated near the bottom in the line of the heaviest flow. “No fisherman would really expect to move a heavy fish up to a fly through such water, nor could he have any serious hope of being able to work the fly down near bottom. Only when the big fish approach maturity and move

FIELD FOES

out to easier, shallower water is there likely to be any great change in their responsiveness.” Finding the type of water Haig-Brown recommended required hunting for it. When that water held tyee, stealth and casting accuracy were essential if my presentations were to be accepted. My challenge was rewarded with success. As a rite of passage, I had data of my first two tyee tattooed on my

right bicep. My fly of choice was Flat Black. Never let the naysayers tell what you can and can’t do. If it is fish you want, then let the fish be your judge.

THE REPORT

Fishing on our Lower Mainland lakes is good. Try Coachman, American Coachman, Professor, Wooly Bugger, Micro Leach, Sixpack, Dragonfly Nymph, Halfback, Doc

Spratley, Baggy Shrimp or Zulu. Our Lower Mainland bass and panfish fishing is hot. For bass try Wooly Bugger, Big Black, Clouser’s Deep Minnow, Zonker, Bucktail, Dolly Whacker or Crayfish in sizes 8 to 4. For Crappie or Pumpkinseed try Wooly Bugger, Big Black, Micro Leach, Bucktail, Dolly Whacker, or Clouser’s Deep Minnow. Fishing on our

Interior lakes is good. Try Wooly Bugger, Micro Leach, Egg Sucking Leach, Pumpkinhead, Dragonfly Nymph, Halfback Nymph, 52 Buick, Doc Spratley, Green Spratley, Souboo, or Baggy Shrimp. The Fraser River is fishing well for spring, chum and cutthroat. The Stave River is fair for chum and coho. The Vedder River is good for spring and coho.

Remembrance Day November 11, 2011

THE

ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION Branch #263 Coquitlam

1025 Ridgeway Ave., Coquitlam Office: 604-937-3863 • Lounge: 604-937-0111 10:00 a.m. Remembrance Day Service

Como Lake Middle School Auditorium King Albert Avenue, Coquitlam 10:30 a.m. Parade from the School to Coquitlam’s Cenotaph Veterans Way, Coquitlam 11:00 a.m. Act of Remembrance Laying Wreaths at the Cenotaph 11:30 a.m. Parade from Cenotaph to Coquitlam‘s Legion Hall The route is Veterans Way, then right to King Albert, left on Nelson to hall. Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren are invited to march with their Veteran Grandpa or Grandma. We started this in 2009 and the Grandchildren are honoured to be marching with the Veterans and it gives them a better understanding about the meaning of Remembrance Day.

Do Not Forget the

Poppy Drive

There is a golf cart and our van is available for the Veterans who can’t march anymore. Their Grandchidren are allowed to march beside the cart with you and wheel chairs are welcome in the parade.

Lunch

is available at the Legion Hot Chocolate, Cold Drinks, Coffee and Doughnuts are available free of charge in the Scout Hall for children & parents. The Scout Hall is next to the Cenotaph, and also has bathroom access.

Remember our and your Veterans who gave us the freedom we enjoy. They are getting older and need your help. The money raised is public money and can only be used for their needs, including hospitals.

We have a lot to be thankful for

Make the world a better place

May 6, 2011. It was 66 years ago that the world celebrated the liberation of Europe.

This was the end of World War 2. But we must always remember the evil force that took so many lives.

Do not forget our soldiers in Afghanistan and in other parts of the world. The endurance these comrades have to go through is horrible. You cannot imagine what it is like unless you witness it in person. Never forget the comrades whose lives have been taken away by evil forces. Our prayers and wishes are with them all to bring them home safely.

LEST WE FORGET

WE MUST NOT FORGET

Aug. 2011, also 66 years ago that Japan surrendered. We must never forget these 2 events. It changed the world and brought peace and freedom to many people.
