Pickton property on radar Infrared technology used to search for underground dungeon By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Police so strongly suspected Robert Pickton might be killing prostitutes in the late 1990s they tried using infrared photography on the hunch he had an underground dungeon beneath the Port Coquitlam farm. That was part of the testimony before the Missing Women Inquiry of Vancouver Police Detective Const. Lori Shenher, who on Monday recounted the evidence pointing to Pickton years before his eventual arrest in early 2002. She said the attempt to use aerial thermal imaging to detect subterranean heat sources was carried out by Coquitlam RCMP at her request. “I felt maybe Pickton had a bunker or an underground chamber where some of these activities might be taking place,” said Shenher, an officer in the VPD’s Missing Persons Unit who shared geographic profiler Kim Rossmo’s suspicion a serial killer was at work. By 1999, she said, she considered Pickton a “strong person of interest.”

NDP’s Trasolini says build Murray-Clarke By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

In mourning for popular former Coquitlam student FOR STORY, SEE PAGE 8

Traffic in Port Moody is reaching untenable levels and unless the provincial government steps up with funding for the MurrayClarke Connector things could get a lot worse. That was the message from Port Moody-Coquitlam NDP bye-

lection candidate Joe Trasolini M o n d ay m o r n i n g , wh e n h e, flanked by party leader Adrian Dix, called on the B.C. Liberal government to make the project a priority. “The north east sector is demanding that the provincial government... partner with TransLink and build this much needed link,” he said. “If it is not done now this

area can look forward to further tie-ups and further problems in this narrow corridor.” As mayor of Por t Moody, Trasolini championed the project but the Ministry of Transportation has long held that the route is a local issue and not the province’s responsibility. see MINISTER MINISTER,, page 3

Minister optimistic for connector continued from front page

IN QUOTES

Trasolini said the road project, which entails widening Murray Street to four lanes and connecting it with the Barnet Highway, should have been completed years ago, before the influx of residents on Heritage Mountain, Newport, Suterbrook, Westwood Plateau and Burke Mountain. With work on the Evergreen Line about to get underway, Trasolini said now would be an ideal time to build the Mur ray-Clarke Connector. “Cities like Port Moody and Coquitlam, we spent millions of dollars upgrading roads leading up to the connection and all those millions are going to waste,” he said. “If there was a perfect time to build it it would be now.” Trasolini added that four years ago, when the previous TransLink board considered the project, it was expected to cost about $50 million. In today’s dollars he believes the number would be closer to $60 million. Dix told reporters at Trasolini’s campaign office that the provincial government has drastically underfunded infrastructure across the region. The road system currently in place was designed for a community with a much smaller population, he added. “The problem is that we dramatically built out the community without building an adequate road here,” Dix said. “The result is everyday traffic chaos — traffic chaos that is certainly going to get worse

GARY MCKENNA/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Flanked by New Democratic Party leader Adrian Dix, Port Moody-Coquitlam candidate Joe Trasolini calls on the province to intervene to get the stalled Murray-Clarke connector project built. in the coming years.” B.C. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom told The Tri-City News that he was confused by Trasolini’s comments. The connector, he said, falls under the purview of TransLink and it is the regional transit authorities that must decide how to pay for the project and when to move for-

ward. “The Murray-Clarke Connector is part of TransLink’s Major Road Network,” he said. “They would be responsible for funding and the construction of that.” The province, he added, is currently working with TransLink and the region to find a long-term solution to the transportation au-

thority’s funding needs. After that process is complete the organization will be in a better position to assess its priorities, he said. Current plans for the Evergreen Line accommodate the eventual construction of the Murray-Clarke Connector and Lekstrom said he believes the project will be completed eventually.

But not everyone believes the Murray-Clarke Connector is a certainty. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay said that while the Murray-Clarke Connector would alleviate traffic through Port Moody in the short term it could have other unintended consequences, he said. Building more roads may only serve to attract more drivers and Clay said he is also concerned about using land along Port Moody’s waterfront for a four-lane thoroughfare. “It is bigger than one street,” he said. “We have an awful lot of people that are concerned that if you build a road it will fill up. If we build a four-lane highway it may only serve to attract more drivers.” Still, Clay did not say he was against the construction of the Murray-Clarke Connector. The city is working with TransLink in a visioning exercise, which he said will find solutions to some of the transit issues facing Port Moody. Until the work is complete Clay said he is keeping an open mind on all transit project, including the Murray-Clarke Connector. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Investigating Pickton a lonely job for rookie cop continued from Front page

Shenher had been tipped in the summer of 1998 by Surrey resident Bill Hiscox that Pickton might be the serial killer preying on women from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Hiscox told her Pickton, who he sometimes worked for, was “creepy” and had offered to let him use his meat grinder if he ever needed to dispose of a body. He said another woman he knew who frequented the farm had seen bags of bloody clothing there as well as identification belonging to many women. Shenher told the inquiry she ran police records on Pickton and learned of the early 1997 incident where a prostitute escaped from the farm after a dispute over payment for sex turned into a nearly lethal knife fight. “My first thought was this was not the first time this person has done this,” Shenher told the inquiry. “This is the kind of guy

we’re looking for.” She reinterviewed the woman, found her information “extremely compelling” and concluded at that time she might be the only intended victim to ever escape from Pickton. Pickton had slapped a handcuff on her and a desperate fight ensued. The woman, losing consciousness from loss of blood, escaped nude into the street and flagged down a passing car while trying to hold in her vital organs. Crown had dropped charges of attempted murder and forcible confinement against Pickton after deciding the drug-addicted victim wouldn’t be a credible witness. Shenher told the inquiry the woman, whose identity remains protected, was resuscitated after she “died on the operating table a couple of times.” Pickton was admitted to the same hospital with his own serious stab wounds and in his pocket was the key to the handcuffs that were still dangling from the woman’s

Had she died, Shenher said, she believed the evidence was strong enough for a “slam dunk” murder conviction of Pickton in 1998. Prosecutors are expected to testify later at the inquiry into the decision to abandon the charges. The fact Pickton had a large property and informants claimed he had an ability to dispose of bodies was not lost on Shenher.

“I was very mindful that we were not finding bodies,” she said, adding when she heard Pickton had a meat grinder she thought: “Bingo, this is the kind of guy we’re looking for.” Despite the multiple tips about Pickton, Shenher concluded police did not have enough hard evidence for a search warrant because what they were hearing was arguably out of date and much of it was third-hand.

Police also had trouble recruiting eyewitnesses they’d heard about, including a woman they’d been told saw Pickton gutting the body of one victim in his barn. “We hadn’t uncovered anything yet we could use as evidence to substantiate charges,” Shenher said. It was her first homicide case and she was the lone investigator working on it. Shenher said she felt she was often working on her own, without sufficient direction. Her VPD superiors believed the missing women were still alive somewhere and would turn up, so Shenher said she was cautious in advancing contrary views so as not to be dismissed as a “zealot” as Rossmo was. Shenher requested and received a transfer out of the Missing Persons Unit in 2000. Pickton, believed responsible for dozens of killings, was convicted on six counts of second-degree murder and is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Open house for PoCo shelter Residents can learn more about proposal

The proposal is known as the Tri-Cities Bridge Shelter because it would cover the time period from when the cold/wet weather mat program ends next year and a permanent shelter at 3030 Gordon Ave. is built in 2014. If the plan is approved, the church would be able to provide accommodations to homeless people during the cold months from October through March between 9:30 p.m. and 7 a.m. But there are several dif ferences between Hope for Freedom’s new proposal and the cold/wet weather mat program that operates today. Currently, homeless people meet at various locations around the Tri-Cities and are bused to a different church each night. The bridge shelter would be at the same location, and those who wish to access the service will have to find their own way to the church. Thiessen said this will cut down on confusion and save the society the cost of providing transit to the people using the shelter. The new location, he said, is also right near where most of the home-

Port Coquitlam residents will get their chance to learn more about a temporary overnight homeless shelter proposed for Grace Church at an open house this week. Rob Thiessen, director of the Hope for Freedom Society, the organization that will operate the shelter, said he does not know what type of response to expect from the community. In the past, temporary shelters have drawn criticism from some residents, who fear the initiatives will draw more homeless people into their neighbourhoods. However, in recent years, Thiessen said he has noticed less opposition to the shelters and more understanding from the community that these proposals are necessary. “I have no idea what to expect,� he said. “In some cases the responses have been very minimal. Sometimes there is a huge crowd so it is hard to say.�

Progress on Partington plan Future home of Burke Mtn. hub By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A detailed plan for what Burke Mountain’s biggest neighbourhood will look like in 20 years will likely be unveiled this summer. But city planners say they will want feedback from the public before the Partington Creek Village Neighbourhood Plan (PCVNP) wraps up. In March, the city will meet with Baycrest Avenue homeowners, many of whom have changed their minds about land-use options since the PCVNP was first introduced six years ago, said community planning manager Bruce Irvine. In April, the city will also gauge opinions on the planned neighbourhood centre — the “hub” for all of Burke where the highest density will go. And in May, a final open house will be held. In the meantime, the city plans to finish Partington’s utilities and servicing plan next month; the transportation and environmental reviews are also “near completion,” planner Andrew Young told Monday’s committee-incouncil. Last year, the city got approval from Fisheries and Oceans Canada to proceed with its $30-million Integrated Watershed Management Plan for Partington, which had been holding up the PCVNP process

for at least a year. PCVNP calls for up to 13,000 residents on the steep slope around Minnekhada regional park, plus schools, commercial space and parks. At the last open house for PCVNP held in June, the city got mixed reviews on how the “hub” should develop: Some people pressed for towers to protect green spaces and sensitive lands while others urged a low-compact sprawl.

Coun. Mae Reid said she’s happy the city decided to be more flexible with the amount and types of housing in the PCVNP rather than prescribe a number for each subdivision. “It was an impossible task,” she said on Monday. Meanwhile, asked by Coun. Terry O’Neill what the city’s role is in planning Partington — given that it owns a third of it — city manager Peter Steblin explained that planning

GM Jim McIntyre acts as an independent advisor while the city’s lands strategy is handled behind closed doors. PCVNP is the fourth neighbourhood plan for Burke Mountain. Previously, city council adopted plans for Upper Hyde Creek, Lower Hyde Creek and Smiling Creek. And once Partington Creek is adopted, the city plans to start work on the fifth Burke neighbourhood: Hazel Drive.

Hunter warns of goose problem Coquitlam bow hunting ban to be tweaked By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A flurry of calls and emails from hunters to Coquitlam city hall triggered council this week to rethink its new rules around discharging firearms, and bow and arrows. Mayor Richard Stewart said city staff will tweak the planned policy, which was originally brought forward after a bear was hit by an arrow on a northeast Coquitlam blueberry farm last summer and it stumbled into the nearby Minnekhada regional park. On Monday, Coquitlam resident and outdoor enthusiast Paul Juoksu told the council-incommittee the city didn’t give

the public a chance to comment on the draft regulation. And he said stopping all shooting in Coquitlam would end hunting on Goose Island, a popular destination in Pitt River, which may result in an increase in the local Canada goose population. Last year, the city of Coquitlam spent thousands of dollars to limit the number of the pesky birds at Como Lake Park, following complaints from regular park users. Juoksu also told the committee meeting that hunters at the Swiss Canadian Mountain Range Association, on Burke Mountain, weren’t aware of council’s actions. Stewart explained the intent of the bylaw was to deal with bow and arrow hunting — not shooting ranges — and the firearms discharge prohibition was added later as “it was a staff assessment that a firearm ban was a long-

term goal of the city,” Bill Susak, Coquitlam’s general manager of engineering and public works, told the council-in-committee. Several councillors, including Burke residents Brent Asmundson and Craig Hodge, said while they respected the rights of hunters, the city also has a responsibility to protect the homeowners on Burke, where another 20,000 people will live over the next 20 years. “It’s a changing area. The population is changing. Hunting on Burke Mountain is going to change.... The gun club is going to become — at some point — a conflict with development around it. That’s just a fact what’s going to happen,” Asmundson said, adding, “We have to be looking forward as we’re moving with the population.” Coun. Lou Sekora said he’s opposed to the city banning hunting with firearms.

Chan was ‘going to be mayor’ Highway 1 HOV rules Coq. Mayor Stewart recalls bright, hardworking young man By Kyle Slavin BLACK PRESS

A Pinetree secondary grad studying at the University of Victoria died last week after contracting meningicoccal disease, a bloodstreambased bacterial infection. Leo Chan, who graduated in 2010, won the Raymond LeClair scholarship from the Coquitlam Foundation. In Grade 12, Chan spent his work experience time at the Coquitlam mayor’s office, getting an inside peek at city government in action. “He was just an incredibly bright and hardworking and focused young man,� said Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart. “He came in enthusiastic, dressed in a suit. He was going to be mayor.� Stewart recalled Chan as having a keen interest in democracy and public policy. “It’s such a tragedy to hear that such a promising life was lost.� A memorial service was held at the university’s interfaith chapel on Wednesday (Jan. 25), with Chan’s family members in attendance. Meningicoccal disease is contagious but the Vancouver Island Health Authority and UVic health services staff determined that few people were ever at risk of contracting it. Chan lived in on-campus housing. “If a person is exposed to the nose or throat secretions of someone who is carrying that germ they may be exposed themselves,� said Dr. Murray Fyfe, medical health officer for VIHA. “It’s (contracted) through very close contact — that

would be like kissing, or sharing food or drinks or cigarettes. And when we have a case like this, the people who are in the same household or sharing sleeping arrangements may also be at a higher risk.� Since the young man’s death on Jan. 18, health authorities identified 19 people — including 17 in Greater Victoria — as being at risk of exposure. All have been given a preventive vaccine and antibiotic. “Any individual that was considered to be in his closest contact

However, simply sharing a classroom with the infected student does not merit cause for alarm. “(Classmates) don’t have to worry about it,� Fyfe said. The student was admitted to Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria on Jan. 14 and died in hospital four days later. The symptoms of meningicoccal disease include weakness, fatigue and fever, and Fyfye said they progress “very rapidly.� — with files from Sarah Payne

Change to come with more lane closures HOV lanes on Highway 1 will be open to all traffic on the weekends starting this Friday as construction on the freeway widening project intensifies. Por t Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project crews need to start closing lanes during the day on weekends and opening up the HOV lanes is expected to minimize delays by keeping at least two lanes open each way at all times.

The rule change allowing unlimited use of HOV lanes between Grandview Highway and the Port Mann Bridge will be in effect from 7 p.m. Fridays through 6 a.m. Mondays, starting this Friday. Normal HOV lane restrictions requiring a minimum two occupants remain in effect during weekdays from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. When the new Port Mann Bridge opens, HOV lanes will extend east as far as 200 Street in Langley and will return to their normal 24-hour schedule.

This is no party Y

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

oung people are playing Russian Roulette if they take ecstasy. But how many of them understand the risks of the game? The feel-good drug popularized by the rave set 20 years ago has become more dangerous with the passage of time and young people don’t know what they’re getting when they ingest these drugs. In recent months, 18 people have died from taking the popular party drug in B.C. and Alberta and five had the lethal additive Paramethoxymethamphetamine (PMMA) in their system. Likely these people had no idea what they were ingesting. The fact is, these cooked up chemicals are bad enough on their own but when PMMA is added the results can be lethal depending on the physiology of the individual. Some can take these drugs and survive while others simply die. Experts in the field say those who made the drug don’t like losing customers and will alter the next batch. But that won’t make ecstasy any less harmful. It has always been laced with other drugs such as cocaine, and taking it is a gamble. Unfortunately, ecstasy is often sold in pretty colours and with cartoonish graphics, making it look like a harmless alternative to alcohol, marijuana or other social drugs. It’s also cheaper than many of these other options. Police are working across jurisdictions to share information and have dismantled more than 30 drug labs in the last year. But the ground war against drugs is not enough and other adults in youth’s lives must get the word out, too, that pure, safe ecstasy is a drug that simply does not exist. Parents, teachers, school counsellors and firstresponders must provide clear-eyed, nonjudgmental up-to-date information about this drug. Some adults may fear that simply bringing up the issue will make some kids curious enough to try the drug. A few may be tempted. But it’s best to be open with all youth because the more knowledge that is out there the better. This is one roulette game nobody wants to lose.

BCTF skips math homework in wage demands BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – Teachers in parts of B.C. wore black on Friday to mark the 10th anniversary of legislation that their union insists “stripped” their “right” to control staffing levels in public schools. This crucial management tool was abruptly taken back in 2002 by the B.C. Liberal government’s huge majority. Too abruptly, according to a B.C. Supreme Court judge last year. The court decision stemmed from a landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling that led to $80 million in compensation for contract-breaking in the B.C. health care support sector at around the same time. In the B.C. Teachers’ Federation case, the judge gave the provincial government a year to consult and come up with a replacement to the offending legislation, which will then

cease to be in effect. That year is running out, with no more progress being made than the talks to replace the BCTF’s expired union contract. The pattern of all this is drearily familiar. The B.C. government has already tabled legislation to wrest control of teacher discipline away from the union, after an outside expert found that a convicted drug dealer and a sex offender had managed to get their teaching credentials restored. After the legislature resumes sitting, conflict-weary parents can expect to hear of new legislation to address the class size and special needs support issue. And there will likely also be an imposed contract, with the two-year “net zero” wage mandate that has already been accepted by most other government unions. After months of fruitless meetings, political posturing and work-to-rule action, the BCTF finally tabled a revised contract offer last week, typically by staging a news conference in Vancouver before sharing the offer with the government’s bargaining agent.

TRI-CITY NEWS [CCAB AUDITED CIRCULATION 53,469 (MARCH 2009)] 1405 Broadway St., Port Coquitlam, B.C. V3C 6L6 telephone: 604-525-6397 • fax: 604-944-0703

It called for wage increases of three, six and six per cent, plus benefit improvements that tinkered with the breathtakingly extravagant demands the union tabled last year. The BCTF estimated the package would cost a mere $300 million in the first year. “Show your work,” my math teachers used to tell me, but the BCTF didn’t show its calculations. Union officials dismissed the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association’s $2 billion cost estimate of the their initial demands as “enormously inflated,” but didn’t show how or by how much. BCPSEA crunched what numbers the union gave them in the new proposal, and came up with a first-year cost of nearly $500 million. The BCTF, again to the media rather than at the bargaining table, allowed that its total package would cost $565 million. Again, no calculations were produced. BCPSEA estimates the union’s proposal would cost an additional $880 million over three years. And that’s not counting the union’s demand for $300 million a year to reduce class sizes and increase special needs

support staff. Teachers are still being compensated under the final terms of a contract that provided 16 per cent in wage increases over five years, in the midst of a harsh recession. And here’s a fun math fact. With percentage wage increases, three plus six plus six doesn’t equal 15. It’s closer to 16, because later raises are calculated on a larger base. So on wages alone, the BCTF wants the same in three years that it just got in five, at a time when private sector unions take layoffs and wage cuts, and the province is billions in the red. The president of the Langley Teachers’ Association went on CKNW radio and succinctly summed up the BCTF’s position. Raise income taxes across the board. Gordon Campbell cut everyone’s taxes by 25 per cent in 2001, and cut education to pay for it. They’re still fighting the 2005 election.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS

People who don’t shovel snow put carriers at risk The Editor, Congratulations to the Snow Angels for their efforts during this last snow fall and thanks to all of the residents and businesses for keeping up their responsibility for snow removal in and around their property. It is nice to see that there still are people who look out for the safety of others. Now for the rest of you Port Coquitlam residents — and our bylaws department— leadership is needed on the snow removal issue. It is up to residents, commercial or otherwise, to keep your sidewalks, driveways and stairs clear for the safety of others who are out and about.

When this is not addressed, you put letter carriers, paper delivery personnel and everybody else at risk of serious injury. Any injury suffered due to irresponsibility on your part is your responsibility. As for our bylaws department, you tell me you do not have the staff to monitor the snow removal yet you are willing to warn those who do not adhere to the bylaw (snow must be removed after the snow has stopped falling by 10 a.m. the next day). Warning people of bylaw infractions is not a good use of our resources especially when taxes are high and services are less. It

is the public’s responsibility to stay current and the municipalities to inform. My children deliver papers and during the recent snowfall, there were several homes and apartment buildings where snow was not cleared. This creates very unsafe footing for all. If my children get injured while performing their job of delivering newspapers to the residents in our neighbourhood, I will be looking at the city for not enforcing this bylaw. We all have a responsibility to keeping our children and community safe. Ken Shewchuk Port Coquitlam

TransLink should find efficiencies The Editor, My understanding is that TransLink commissioner Martin Crilly is seeking public input and looking at TransLink’s finances before approving the fare increase. As he really is the only one who stands in the way of a fairly significant fare hike, I would hope that all transit users give their input to Mr. Crilly as our silence will only be taken as a sign of fare hike compliance. I hope that other alternatives are seriously considered before fare hikes. A fare hike will only

punish people who are making environmentally-sound choices and may push some to simply buy a second car. Mr. Crilly is looking for efficiencies and perhaps he might do well to study the way other cities operate such as Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore. First, why not expedite the auto-fare card installation so that free riding and short-changed transfer ticketing is reduced making for a fairer transfer system, requiring less supervision. I was told it would not be ready until 2013. Should it really take

that long when every day without it is revenue foregone? Second, cleaning costs could be substantially reduced eating g and littering were prohibited. I see staff constantly cleaning the floors of free newspapers that are left around on seats and on floors. Third, there are a lot of duplicate lines, they should also be cut. In short, TransLink needs to look at other international transit systems and see how it might operate better before asking for more money to expand. Nevin Blumer, Port Coquitlam

TRI-CITYY LETTERS Mad, stuck in traffic watching people break the law the rest of us. Do these people somehow think that they should be exempt from waiting? Is their time somehow more precious than ours? How then, can they sit there trying to stare straight ahead like they’ve done nothing wrong (You know who you are) while the rest of us, clearly of a higher society, gesture or look at them with eyes of hate? (Yes, that is me.) Would these cowards cut in front of others in line at a store or bank? No. I have seen this done by young and old alike, even by some “fine examples� driving their children or teenagers. There has been a red light camera installed at this intersection but it must not be set to capture this dangerous and lowly manoeuvre.

The Editor, Being stuck in traffic is not something I enjoy. I, like most, get in line, wait my turn, and slowly but surely make my way. So why is it that an increasing number of people seem to think that the road rules of our entire driving system, somehow don’t apply to them? To get onto the Mary Hill Bypass travelling westbound from Shaughnessy Street, you must be in the right hand lane which is often backed up by about 10 cars in the morning. Every day I see at least one to two cars jump into the left lane, speeding past those of us waiting in the only lane with the ability to yield right onto Mary Hill, and, from the straight through lane (doesn’t even matter if the light is red or green), proceed to turn right by driving around the sidewalk island, in front of

Metro region near bottom of home affordability Second-worst ranking may overstate problem: economist By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Metro Vancouver is now ranked the second least affordable area to buy a home in an annual study of international real estate markets. The annual Demographia survey of 325 cities rated Metro Va n c o u v e r s e c o n d worst for affordability, bumping Sydney, Australia into third place. Only Hong Kong ranks worse. “The most unaffordable markets, Hong Kong and Vancouver, became even more unaffordable,” according to the findings, which looked at major cities in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. The study calculates a “median multiple” to measure housing affordability for each metro area (including far-flung suburbs) by dividing the median home price by the median household income. Metro Vancouver’s multiple at 10.6 means it would take more than a decade of a typical family’s entire annual income of $63,800 to cover the $678,500 cost of a home. That’s more than double the 5.0 multiple at which Demographia considers housing to be “severely unaffordable” and far above the 3.0 cut-off to be counted affordable. T he next worst Canadian cities are Abbotsford at 7.0, Victoria at 6.8, Kelowna at 6.6, Toronto at 5.5 and Montreal at 5.1. Several U.S. cities, including New York and San Francisco, were also classified severely unaffordable, but at lower ratios between 5.0 and 7.0. Vancouver’s ranking has worsened from 2006, when it was the

Metro Vancouver ranks second only to Hong Kong as the least affordable area to buy a home, according to the annual Demographia survey of 325 cities. survey’s 15th least affordable city with a median multiple of 6.6. It’s the latest in a series of reports that have red-flagged rising prices in this region. RBC Economics, which tracks affordability based on local residents’ ability to qualify for a mortgage on a typical home, warned in November Vancouver’s “extreme unaffordabil-

ity appears to be driving local buyers away.” Central 1 Credit Union economist Helmut Pastrick agrees Metro Vancouver is “very expensive... these kinds of price-to-income measures verify that.” But he thinks the Demo g raphia study may overstate Metro’s affordability problem, noting it seems to un-

derestimate the region’s household income levels. Pastrick also argues high-priced homes

that fetch $2 million or more in the most desired parts of the region make the problem appear worse than it really is in more affordable areas, such as Surrey, Langley or the Tri-Cities. “I might quibble with our ranking,” he said. “We might not be number two, but number 10 or so.” Still, Pastrick doesn’t expect Metro Vancouver will get cheap any time soon. “ We h av e v e r y unique geographic constraints — mountains, water, the border — so the pressures on land prices are more intense here than elsewhere,” he said. Those are bigger factors here, he said, than land use restrictions such as the Agricultural

Land Reserve or Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy, which seeks to concentrate development in areas better served by transit. “The long-term upward trend in land prices will continue,” Pastrick predicts, adding the old expectation that most people can own a detached house will continue to fade. More residents will own condos and increasingly buyers will choose smaller units, older units or ones further from the core in response to rising prices, he said. “It may also mean renting,” Pastrick said. “In the future, I think there will be relatively more renters than we have now.” New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright,

who chairs Metro’s housing committee, said the shortage of rental housing is also a serious concern. “If you don’t have a workforce that can get to work and have a good day’s work given to you because they had to travel for four hours, you’re in a lot of trouble,” he said. Local cities and other groups have formed the Rental Housing Supply Coalition to press senior gover nments to find ways to encourage developers to build more rental units. Wright said aging rental apartment buildings are increasingly becoming unliveable and that is making it more urgent to solve the rental supply problem. jnagel@blackpress.ca

Be a royal Applicants for May Day royal party sought by City of Port Coquitlam

CITY OF PORT COQUITLAM PHOTO

Hillary Rempel, May Queen, is surrounded by members of her royal party, including Andrew Lloyd, ambassador, Carly Cerqueira, first princess and Clement Tsai, record bearer, during the 2011 May Day in Port Coquitlam. Applications for this year’s royal party are now being sought.

Do your children want to take a lead role in Port Coquitlam’s 89th annual May Day celebrations? The city of Port Coquitlam is accepting applications for the traditional May Day Royal Party until Feb. 10. Selected through a random draw, the May Day Royal Party consists of flower girls from Grades 1 and 2, and princesses and lancers (similar to a knight) from Grades 4 and 5. Royal Party duties include participating in: • Hip hop dance practices – beginning Feb. 24, 4 to 5:30 p.m. each Friday at the Port Coquitlam Rec Complex (except spring break and Good Friday) • May Day selection tea – April 3 • Dress rehearsal (day and time to be announced) • May Day banquet and opening ceremonies – May 4, 5:30 to 9 p.m. • May Day Parade with the city float, followed by the May Day Luncheon – May 12, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. • Mother’s Day Picnic (optional) – May 13, 8:30 a.m. to noon This year’s May Queen and ambassador will be randomly selected from among the princesses and lancers at the selection tea April 3. The tradition of May Day royalty in Port Coquitlam dates back to 1923, when the city crowned its first May Queen and began celebrating May Day each year. Over the years, the festival has grown into a week-long community celebration that includes May Pole dancing, the Rotary May Day Parade, outdoor concerts, heritage and art events, displays, carnival rides and other activities. This year’s festival runs from May 4 to May 13. For more information or to apply online, visit www.portcoquitlam.ca/mayday. Printed applications are also available at city hall and recreation facilities. The application deadline is Feb. 10. For more information, contact Shelly Alford at royalparty@portcoquitlam.ca.

Sing your child to sleep with a good book and CD A GOOD READ

Helena ashcroft Stories with song help kids to get creative

M

y first thought about doing an article about story books in song was, “Great, this will be so easy. There are so many I can include.” My second thought a few days later was, “Great, there are too many to include.” Singing along to the words in a story and looking at the pictures is fun and makes the story more memorable. I’ve always enjoyed stories that I can sing to, and children do love to sing. You don’t have to be Marc Anthony or Adele to sing along to a story. Trust me, Adele I am not. Here are some really good ones for Grade 1 student and younger: • We All Go Traveling (Sheena Roberts) A Rhyming I-spy journey to school through various landscapes is the perfect introduction to colours, modes of transport, and of course, music. With the jaunty text, Siobhan Bell’s colourful illustrations and the accompanying music CD by popular singer Fred Penner are sure to get children singing along happily. Also includes sheet music. • Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush

(Sophie Fatus) In this story you also can sing along with a CD featuring Fred Penner as you follow four children from different countries, each going through their early morning routine and getting ready for school. This is a great multicultural story, too. It also includes sheet music. • If You’re Happy and You Know It (Jane Cabrera) In Cabrera’s version of the popular children’s song, various animals demonstrate the motions for the many verses. Monkey claps his hands, Elephant stamps his feet, while Giraffe nods his head. Concluding pages have a Hollywood Squaretype montage of all nine animals who cry at once, “If you’re happy and you know it, shout…We are!” Cheerful, colourful illustrations enhance the happy mood of the song. Also great is Ten In The Bed d by the same

author. • Down by the Station n (Susan Vetter) Little fans of trucks and trains and boats and planes will love to sing this action-packed version of the classic rhyme, paired with Frank Remkiewicz’s happy, colourful illustrations. Children who love things that go will be thrilled with the vehicles included here: school bus, tractortrailer, excavator, jumbo jet, sailboat, racecar, fire engine and rocket. The ending is a good segue to bedtime as the train returns to the station and several sleepyheads head to bed. • Caldecott medalist Paul O. Zelinsky created d The Wheels on the Bus, an incomparable moving parts picture book that has the bonus of being a song as well. Almost a million young readers have enjoyed the wheels that go round, doors that open and shut, and people who go bumpety-bump. Includes sheet music.

If you take the storybooks in song concept one step farther, you can substitute an instrument for the storybook and keep the child singing along. I’m just getting into this having started the guitar and I love it. I can play This Old Man on the guitar and my daughter belts out the words for me. It’s awesome! She’s going to get sick of this song very quickly though so I had better work on my second song. Children love music and seeing someone play any instrument is memorable. Many storybooks in song have the sheet music with chords included in the book. Happy singing! Check out this great website for children’s songs: http://www. storytimesongs.com/ Newsletter.html, and of course, always ask your local library staff for more great suggestions.

Kindergarten Registration for 2012 When Can My Child Start Kindergarten? Children who are five years old before December 31, 2012 may enter school in September 2012. You may defer your child’s enrolment until September 2013. When Should I Register My Child? Kindergarten registration (except for Montessori, Bilingual Mandarin, Reggio Emilia and French Immersion) within School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) will be held on February 7, 8, 9 in all elementary schools. Beginning this year, registration for Early French Immersion will be done online from January 19-25, 2012. See our website for more details. Should I Bring Anything for Registration? Please bring the following documents: Proof of citizenship for parent & child (one of): birth certificate; passport; PR Card; Canadian Citizenship Card. Proof of BC residency for parent (one of): rental contract; property purchase contract; income tax statement; property tax statement; and 2 of the following documents: utility bill; BC care card; BC driver’s licence; BC vehicle registration; Canadian Social Insurance #; Canadian bank or credit card statement; BC ID. Proof of Guardianship: please refer to ‘Funding Eligibility Checklist’ on our website or contact your neighbourhood school.

Information regarding Kindergarten and parent meetings should be available at every school at the time of registration. Can I use my childcare facility address to determine my child’s school attendance area? According to the School Act, enrolment can only be based on the home address. All students must be registered for Kindergarten at their catchment area school on February 7, 8 or 9. If parents wish their child to attend an out of catchment school they will be provided the opportunity to apply for a cross catchment transfer, beginning on February 10, 2012 with the deadline of February 22, 2012 (visit our website for more information).

Pacifika plays to home crowd By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

W

ith equal parts dance groove, lilting multilingual lyrics and Latin rhythms, the trio Pacifika will bring some world music flair to the Port Moody Inlet Theatre for their show Feb. 3. The Juno-nominated group — consisting of Peruvian-born singer Silvana Kane, bassist Toby Peter of Barbados and Canadian contingent Adam Popowitz on guitar — will be playing their signature laid-back global vibe to a hometown crowd. Both Kane and Peter now live in Port Moody, with Popowitz just a stone’s throw away over the Coquitlam border. This Friday’s show comes as the band works on a solo record for Kane as well as a fourth Pacifika album. “Over the course of the last few years people have always been asking about [Silvana’s] upbringing and the music she listened to, so she was inspired to do a tribute album to the artists she grew up with,” Popowitz said, including South American legends Susana Baca and Mercedes Sosa. “It’s much more gentle, lullaby, folkloric

kind of tunes.” The fourth Pacifika album — the group’s third record-label release after their first independent album — promises more of the trio’s eclectic mix of musical styles. “We didn’t want to work with a deadline in our head, we wanted to let the music take us where it was going,” Popowitz said. They also wanted to give themselves plenty of time to make the summer festival circuit and aim to have the album finished sometime in the fall. “We just want to make a really good record.” PACIFIKA Given Pacifika’s track record, fans can expect nothing less, starting with the 2008 release of Asuncion, a mix of “indie rock, bossa nova, Afropop and dub production,” followed by the enticing Supermagique, a blend of breezy pop and Brazilian rhythms with lyrics in Spanish, French and English. Popowitz credits the group’s varied backgrounds with Pacifika’s unique sound. “All three of us have traveled and worked and fallen in love with many types of music

and many types of inspiration,” he said. “It helps that Silvana is from Peru, so she has that South American and flamenco blood flowing through her. She’s also spent time in Spain and Ibiza, where there’s a huge house and electronica culture.” Peter adds a Caribbean flair, combined with his experimental heavy metal background and use of dub bass lines, while Popowitz was heavily influenced by 80s new wave music like The Smiths and The Cure. (Popowitz has also studied classical flamenco and, as a producer, has even crafted Armenian folk records.) Pacifika’s work on Supermagiquee netted them the 2010 iTunes (US) award for Best World Album, a 2011 Juno nomination for World Music Album of the Year and the 2011 nomination for World Recording of the Year from the Western Canadian Music Alliance. “In Canada a Juno nomination really validates all your hard work,” Popowitz said. “And we live in Canada, so we really respect what the Junos can do for you.”

He recalled being in a Toronto hotel room, following a three-week sojourn in Quebec, the morning the nominations were announced. “I didn’t know what had happened and I turned on the TV and there it was, World Music — Pacifika,” said Popowitz. “It was great being there, we got a lot of attention. We went back two months later for the ceremony and...it was great just seeing everyone in Canadian music, like Rush, Barenaked Ladies, Feist, Shania Twain.” The Inlet Theatre show marks Pacifika’s first “intimate theatre showcase,” Popowitz said, and one where audiences can enjoy the group’s dynamic on-stage presence. They’ll be joined by renowned drummer Elliott Polsky. “Our show is more than just music, it’s an experience,” Popowitz said. “We want people to be moved, we want to inspire people, we want them to go home and love each other and give them lots of peace and love and joy, as corny as that all sounds.” • Pacifika plays the Inlet Theatre (100 Newport Dr.) Friday, Feb. 3 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25, available at 604-931-2008.

Heart and soul for Theatrix A group of SFU students is raising the profile of a local children’s theatre group while working on a certificate of innovative leadership. The group of Indu Murugathasan, Jonathon To, Kade Markson, Kevin Kumar, Whitney Chow and Jenni Rempel in SFU’s leadership development program have created the Heart & Soul Valentine’s Benefit on Feb. 12 for Theatrix Youtheatre Society. “Theatrix does really great work with kids so I’m glad I can spread the word about the wonderful programs and opportunities they are giving young people,” said Rempel, a third-year interactive art and communications major who joined Theatrix at the age of 12. Rempel, the sponsor liaison and team mentor on the project, completed the SFU LEAD pro-

The g roup was drawn to Theatrix for its mission to ensure accessibility to performing arts for kids regardless of age, ability or family income, and its recent financial struggles in light of funding cutbacks.

“I’m thrilled by the efforts of our SFU team,” said Theatrix artistic director and founder Deborah Solberg. “We’ve worked together to create a delightfully entertaining evening in celebration of Valentine’s and the arts.” The benefit will feature live musical and theatrical performances, including opera star Elizabeth Cushnie, pianist Peter Abando and Vancouver sensation Lara Matiation, who will perform her blend of vocals and upbeat guitar rhythms. Theatrix improv alumni Graham Myers of Second Storey Theatre will keep the audience laughing, and there will also be an art show and auction of original works by SFU contemporary artists. • Heart & Soul is at the Port Moody Inlet Theatre Feb. 12 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $35, available at www.theatrixyoutheatre.com.

Experience the Romance of Dance

By Tyler Orton THE TRI-CITY NEWS

B.C. actor Antonio Cupo says new luggage is the only consistent investment he ever makes in his career. “I didn’t really think I was going to be living out of a suitcase through my entire 20s and into my 30s, but that’s kind of how it’s been,” he says. “I’ve got more damaged luggage than anyone I know.” After spending seven years acting in Europe, he returned to Canada last summer intent on refocusing his career in North America. Now the Vancouverbased actor has packed his bags once again for a trip to Los Angeles, Calif. where he’s preparing for pilot season auditions. Excursions like the one he’s on right now are just part of the deal for anyone determined to make it in entertainment. “Unfortunately, it’s one of those kinds of businesses where even if you really, really want to work, you don’t necessarily always do,” he says. “So you kind of have to be at the right place at the right time and sort of take everything with a grain of salt and really push.” The son of Italian immigrants, Cupo went to high school in north Bur naby, but spent most of his time with friends and family in Coquitlam. “The honest truth is we would skip out of class and go to Coquitlam to play pool because it would be a sure place where no one would spot us,” he says, chuckling. in Appearing European films and starring in one of Italy’s biggest TV shows was a tremendous experience, but Cupo says returning to Canada was meant to be. Within days of coming home he was cast in Global’s Bomb Girls. Airing Wednesdays at 8 p.m., the dramatic miniseries follows a group of Canadian women working at a munitions factory during the Second World War. “Aside from the historical significance, it’s also a real story about relationships,” Cupo says, noting women became more empowered during that era as they

Performing alongside Bomb Girls star and Oscar-nominee Me g Tilly was an incredible experience, according to Cupo. “Really, I just felt like I was acting with my best friend. It was so comfortable right from the get-go,” he says. But it’s his own character — Italian-Canadian explosives expert Marco Moretti — he’s most

drawn to. “I never played a character who had been discriminated against before, because the characters I normally play are romantic leads,” he says, adding many Italians faced intense prejudice in Canada during the Second World War. But Cupo’s endeavours in the entertainment industry aren’t confined to just acting. Before leaving for Italy, he was dedicated to his rock band Hybrid

Cartel and even went on a national tour. Now that he’s back in Vancouver, the singer/ guitarist says the crew is back together and writing music once again. When put to the test, though, Cupo says he’d rather stick with acting. “Had you asked me that 10 years ago, I would have said I would have taken music all the way, but getting a paycheque [from acting] is also nice, too.” newsroom@tricitynews.com

PoMoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hennig nets U. puck deal in Mass. By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A

wizard on the ice, Port Moody native Jace Hennig is now a Warrior on it as well. The 16-year-old forward with the Coquitlam Express has committed to the Merrimack College Warriors of Massachusetts â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; becoming the third Express player this season to have agreed to jump to the NCAA Div. 1 ranks this B.C. Hockey League season. Hennig play four games as an affiliate play with the Express before being signed by the club at the Jan. 10 trade deadline. He picked up his first BCHL points with a goal and one assist during Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5-2 win Jan. 20

over the Victoria Grizzlies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;T his is g reat news,â&#x20AC;? Express head coach Jon Calvano said of Hennig, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a goal and three assists for four points in 12 outings with the Express. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] good for local young kids to see how HENNIG [our] program benefits the younger players.â&#x20AC;? The BCHL prides itself on being a feeder league to NCAA and CIS schools and giving the opportunity for young hockey players to further develop their skills while receiving a post-secondary education. Other Express players previously signing on with big-name schools this campaign were Alex Petan to

Michigan Tech Huskies and Rajan Sidhu to the RIT Tigers of Rochester, N.Y. Before joining the Express, Hennig racked up 52 points, including 24 goals, in 24 games with the Vancouver North East Chiefs of the Major Midget League. Meanwhile, the Express split a pair of 3-2 decisions on the weekend, falling to the host Cowichan Valley Capitals on Saturday before rebounding to trip the Clippers in Nanaimo on Sunday. The results kept the Express in the thick of the Coastal Conference race with a 25-152-2 record, good for fourth spot with 54 points and just four back of the Surrey Eagles and the Capitals, who are locked in a secondplace tie. Powell River Kings lead the eight-

Ryan overcomes odds to leg out BRAZIL 135-miler A wounded knee couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lucy Ryan from legging out one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most grueling ultra-marathons two weekends ago. Ryan, 43, completed the BRAZIL 135-mile race in a time of 45 hours, 31 minutes. She was the lone Canadian in a field of 66 athletes from around the world to compete in this invitation-only event, with others com-

petitors hailing from Germany, the U.S., Costa Rica, Slovenia, India, Italy, Argentina, Taiwan, the Middle East and Brazil. BRAZIL 135 is a 135-mile (217 km) race that follows the most difficult segment of the Caminho da FĂŠ or Path of the Faith, the longest Pilgrimage in Brazil. It travels over the Mantiqueira Mountains, a sub range

of the Andes Cordillera. With 30,000 feet of cumulative ascent and 28,000 feet of cumulative descent, and only ten flat miles in the race, upon reaching the finish line the runner has completed a course that is analogous to climbing up and down Mt. Everest. Having sustained a ligament strain in her knee while skiing on New Years day, Ryan

DEWDNEY TRUNK

203 RD

Her crew included legendary Brazilian ultraathlete Sergio Cordeiro, who is a two-time world champion for double deca Ironman (20 ironman’s in 20 days). Ryan’s growing resume of ultra endurance events includes: Ultraman Canada (a three-day triathlon covering 512 km); nine Ironman races; four 100km races; and the Javelina Jundred (100 miles). After staying a few days in Rio de Janeiro to recuperate, Lucy intends to jump right back into training in order to complete a busy 2012 race schedule. In addition to the usual marathons and half ironman races, Lucy plans to apply for the Badwater Ultramarathon, a 135mile race through Death Valley in July. She is also re gistered to compete at the Ironman Mt. Tremblant in Quebec and Ironman Canada in Penticton on back-to-back weekends in August. In an effort to give back to her sport and to promote it further, Lucy has teamed up with Steve Brown of Penticton (Ultraman Canada race director) to create a new 100 km ultra marathon and relay to honour race leg-

end Steve King. The inaugural Steve King 100 km Classic will have runners racing from Princeton to Summerland on Sept. 15, 2012. The Steve King Classic is B.C.’s only 100 km road race and will draw ultra runners from around western North America and beyond. The relay race will be open to teams comprising any number of runners between two and eight. Future plans for this ultra athlete include the seven-day Marathon Des Sables in the Morocco Desert and the Ultraman World Championship in Hawaii.

BILLAUX, Rita Ailsa Sept 2, 1926 - Jan 22, 2012

It is with such sadness that we announce the passing of our “special gift” our mother Rita Billaux. Predeceased by her husband Jose Billaux and survived by her children Peter, Gilda and June; sons-in-law Don and Tim; grandchildren Kyle, Chelsea and AJ. In Belize by her brothers Nicholas, Emigdio, Vincente, sister Angelina and their families. “Heaven is just a little brighter mom because you are there....”

With sadness in our hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Christel Elizabeth Schaefer on January 20, 2012 in the Royal Columbian Hospital, New Westminster, BC. She fought a courageous battle against her cancer and stayed positive through to the end. Christel is survived by her husband of 46 years, Hank, their daughter Irene (Jaret); granddaughters Ashleigh and Abby; brother Hans-Hermann (Barbel); sisters-in-law AnneMarie and Marianne (Uwe) and many nephews and nieces in Germany. Christel was a generous, gentle and loving wife, mother, Oma and friend. She would do anything for anyone. She loved camping and fishing and spent as much time as she could with family and friends on many of the lakes of BC. Christel also enjoyed spending time in her beautiful backyard barbequing, gardening, watching her granddaughters swim in the pool and socializing with friends and neighbours. All who knew her will remember her endless supply of homemade cakes, pies and cookies. It was impossible to leave Oma’s house not feeling full and content. She has left us with many wonderful memories that we will cherish in our hearts forever. Her bright smile and loving personality will be greatly missed but never forgotten. At Christel’s request, there will be no funeral service but a private Celebration of Life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
