Directions to the IBEW213 Union building at 1424 Broadway Street in Port Coquitlam


If you are driving east on the Mary Hill Bypass (Highway 7B) towards Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, turn right onto Broadway.  If you are driving west on the Mary Hill Bypass away from Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, turn left onto Broadway.  Drive one block along Broadway to the corner of Broadway St. and Kebet Way.  The IBEW213 building is on the left side of Broadway at that corner.

Another approach is to turn south onto Coast Meridian Road which is the next major intersection east of Broadway on the Mary Hill Bypass.  Drive along Coast Meridian Road and turn right onto Kebet Way. Drive along Kebet Way to Broadway.

The IBEW213 building has a large parking lot.  We will be gaining entrance to the building through a door on the north side of the building – the side towards the Mary Hill Bypass highway.  If you are standing facing the front door of the building with your back to Broadway, walk down the left side of the building and you will find the entrance door that we are allowed to use.  You can check out the Google Map link shown below.,+Port+Coquitlam,+BC+V3C+5W2/@49.2397992,-122.7604119,18z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x5485d67354895409:0xfabf6e961cd830a9!8m2!3d49.2398377!4d-122.7596287

2013 Father's Day walk / Run For Prostate Cancer
Team "Pain in the Ass" Rocked it!!!

Not only was Team "Pain in the Ass" the
 top survivor team 
but the top collectors for the lower mainland!!

And to start of the race I surprised my Team, myself and the crowd of 900 by singing O Canada acapella! 
 I ran the 10.8K in the first chipped run and came in @ a slightly long 1 hour and 20 minutes. Longest time yet but at least it was official this year.
Thanks to the great team we had we raised over $9000.00 for Prostate Cancer research this year

Thank you to our friends in the "4oh4" band for a great 2013 fundraiser to help us again this year. I don't know what I would do without my Friend John Saunders and his buddies!! A great time was had by all!!
