BC Premier Christy Clark is scheduled to attend a women-only town hall luncheon meeting Friday at the Town & Country Inn. Contributed photo

Clark's visit sparks controversy Delta South NDP candidate claims Premier's attendance puts Delta Chamber of Commerce chair in a conflict of interest MARIA SPITALE-LEISK REPORTER

A

n appearance by B.C. Premier Christy Clark at a Delta Chamber of Commerce-hosted, women only luncheon on Friday (Aug. 3) has at least one local political figure crying conflict of interest. Just businesswomen were invited to attend the ticketed event at the Delta Town & Country Inn which is being billed as a "town hall style of discussion" – and is not open to the media. And DCC chair Kelly Guichon, who plans to introduce the premier at Friday's luncheon, has publicly announced her intention to run for the nomination of the BC Liberal party in Delta South. Delta South NDP candidate Nic Slater is speaking out against the event, saying the chamber should not be hosting forums cloaked in secrecy. "The Chamber of Commerce is supposed to be a community-based group," said Slater. I believe in the idea of full transparency. I think it's partisan politics is what it is. I think [Clark] needs to work within the public view and I don't think it's appropriate that she use a public group to promote her own candidacy." When asked whether the event created a conflict of interest, Guichon defended her

role at the meeting. "I'm not the nominated candidate so I don't see the conflict of interest anyway," said Guichon, adding it's her role as chair to introduce any guest speaker of the DCC. Delta South's current MLA, independent Vicki Huntington, finds it a little strange the media have been shut out of the event. "I don't think that's appropriate, particularly when it's being sponsored by the chamber," said Huntington, who will be in attendance Friday. "Of course it's worthwhile to have the media there when the premier is in town, especially when it's being billed as a town hall meeting." Huntington speculated Clark might not want reporters exposed to potential critical commentary at the event, which is expected to explore issues and opportunities for women in business. One area of contention she cited was the small business corporate tax rate not being lowered in the last provincial budget. "That has been disappointing," said Huntington. She also questioned why the premier is coming to Delta with Minister of Children and Family Development Mary McNeil in tow. "To me it sounds like they don't know what they want to accomplish [at the meeting]," said Huntington.

BC Conservative Party leader John Cummins is calling Clark's closed door forum in Delta "an unusual way to grow a party and gain support." "It suggests something that there is a certain exclusiveness about things," said Cummins. He is also questioning why the Delta Chamber would agree to host a public event that excludes the media from attending. "My experience with chambers [of commerce] has always been that they are open, media is invited and they have nothing to hide," said Cummins. He also believes it's not the businesswomen at the meeting who would be afraid of the media. "I think that it's not so much the audience that would be intimidated. I think it's the premier," said Cummins. "It seems that whenever there is a public event lately she has sort of spoken of turn and misstated herself and gotten herself into hot water. And I would suggest that it has more to do with protecting the premier then it does with concern about the attendees." The premier's press secretary Michael Morton said the town hall meeting—which is one of a handful the premier is hosting around the province this week—is an opportunity for Clark to meet with local businesswomen and hear about their issues.

The fourth annual Mentor of the Arts Award will be presented to Tsawwassen's Ali Wright Sunday (Aug. 5) at the Tsawwassen Sun Festival. Each year a member of the local community representing a specific discipline of the arts is recognized for their contribution and leadership in their chosen field. The 2012 Mentor of the Arts Award is being awarded in the category of visual arts. Wright has taught art at Boundary Bay Montessori House for more than 20 years. Award organizers said that over the years Wright has influenced her students with a special blend of wisdom, humour and skill. While not all her students have gone on to careers in visual arts, most if not all will reflect fondly upon the wonderful gift of artistic appreciation that Wright has helped them to achieve, stated a press release. A true mentor in every sense of the word, Ali Wright is a most deserving recipient from the local artistic community. Wright joins past honourees, Jerry Doucette, Beverley Mantovani and Tracy Neff as inspirational members of the flourishing arts and cultural community of Tsawwassen. The award will be present at the Courtyard stage (under the large glass roof near Rona and Albion Books) in the Tsawwassen Shopping Centre.

Firefighters battle Boundary Bay brush fire

WOOD N FROG

Monday morning fire kept fire crews and helicopter busy MARIA SPITALE-LEISK REPORTER

Delta Fire crews extinguishing some remaining hot spots from a suspicious brush fire in Boundary Bay Monday morning ( July 30) got some help from above. A helicopter equipped with a water dropping bucket flew in from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to reach some areas inaccessible to fire crews. According to Delta Fire and Emergency Services officials on scene, crews were able to halt the fire from jumping the dike in the area. Dave Plenert, Battal-

ion Chief with Delta Fire said the fire appears suspicious in nature and the incident is under investigation. The fire call came in around 1:30 a.m. Monday after a resident on 28th Ave. reported a strong smell of smoke in the area, said deputy Delta fire chief Paul Scholfield. “There was a concern that the fire would spread to some greenhouses,” added Scholfield. “[Fire] crews set up line of defence just south of the dyke.” Estimates put the size of the smouldering fire at two hectares. Four fire trucks along with a crew of 12 responded to the

First nations leader reacts to former Mountie's sentencing

BEST PRICE | BEST QUALITY | BEST SERVICE

NO HST

Grand Chief Edward John says Benjamin Monty Robinson's sentence in obstruction of justice case was lenient MARIA SPITALELEISK REPORTER

Former Mountie Benjamin Monty Robinson received a 12-month conditional sentence for his obstruction of justice conviction in New Westminster Supreme Court on July 27. Citing Robinson's Aboriginal status, Justice Janice Dillon did not order jail time for the accused but rather house arrest until Aug. 31, with the remainder of his sentence subject to a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Grand Chief Edward John of the First Nations Summit political executive called Robinson's sentence very lenient. "I just think it's absolutely tragic in every way possible," said John, of the Robinson case as a whole. Robinson has also been ordered to pay a $1,000 victim surcharge fee, write a letter of apology to family, abstain from drugs and alcohol – and finish the rehab program he has been enroled in at the Edgewood facility. The 42-year-old was convicted this spring of obstruction of justice in the October 2008 death of 21-year-old Orion Hutchinson from Tsawwassen. Robinson was driving home when his vehicle collided with Hutchinson's motorcycle at the intersection of 6th Ave, and Gilchrist Dr. He told the court he left the scene of the accident to walk his two children home where he downed two shots of vodka to calm his

nerves. During sentencing, Justice Dillon said Robinson's crime is at a significant serious level as he left the scene of an accident and, knowing the extent of his jeopardy, acted to mislead police. "While the sudden and serious nature of the accident while Robinson's children were in the car might explain Robinson's reaction to some extent and lower his moral culpability, his conduct was nonetheless deliberate and calculated," Dillon said. "He used his knowledge learned as a police officer to mislead investigators: he made a choice." Dillon added that imprisonment should be a last resort, "especially in the case of Aboriginal offenders." John offered some insight into the Gladue principle, which allows for distinct sentencing of Aboriginal offenders, saying that it was Robinson's right to invoke this legislation. "...What the Supreme Court of Canada said was that there was systemic racism built into the criminal justice system," said John. "And parliament had enacted this provision not to mitigate but to ensure that the courts were able to take into account factors relating to an Aboriginal person's background. It's not a get out of jail card by any means." John, who has practised criminal law in Northern BC, cited 2008 statistics that found Aboriginals make up 18 per cent of the male federal inmate population. Asked about the racism

"On the inside I'm sure you are going to see that." During the trial, the court heard testimony from Anne Rough, a Richmond high school teacher who graduated from South Delta Secondary School in 1988—the same year as Robinson—testified she overheard Robinson telling a small group of people how to best avoid a drunk driving charge at an annual Christmas party in Tsawwassen held one year before the accident. "If ever you are drinking and driving and you come upon a road block, you should carry a small bottle of mouthwash and guzzle it before you go through the roadblock because, if you do so, the alcohol content will throw off the breathalyzer, if they administer one

to you," Rough recalled Robinson saying. According to Delta Police, Robinson's breath samples gave readings of .12 and .10 mgs of alcohol (the legal limit is .08). A coroner's toxicological analysis also reported alcohol in Hutchinson's blood. The engineering analysis found Robinson was travelling between 24 and 29 km/h at the time of the collision, and showed Hutchinson was travelling between 66 and 96 km/hr. Said coroner Mark Coleman, "Speed and alcohol intoxication on the part of Mr. Hutchinson were contributing factors. Alcohol intoxication on the part of the driver of the Jeep is also believed to be a contributing factor." Justice Dillon, in her reasons for sentencing, said Robinson's conduct, "discredited the police at a time when police conduct generally was under intense public scrutiny."

North Delta tea room owner enjoys 'southern exposure' in Tsawwassen Comfort food, plain and simple. That's what Kym Sutton has been serving up as one of the food vendors at the Tsawwassen Sun Festival for the past couple of years. And it's been a hit for the owner of Applewood Country Gifts which is perched on the border of Delta and Surrey at the Sunshine Village Mall. Her selection of fudge and crisps— pies without the bulk of a pie crust— go down well with festival-goers and are available on just one day, Monday (Aug. 6). Sutton says she makes three different kinds—each using locally grown fruit for the apple, raspberry-rhubarb, and blueberry crisps. "We put them in a small, individual pie plate so people can walk around and eat them easily at the festival," Sutton says. "It's pretty simple. It's

fruit with an oatmeal topping. It's comfort food." And that fits in well with her restaurant/bake shop's ambience which features a classic tea room that plays host to traditional high teas complete with three courses—savoury, sweet and dessert. The reason Sutton is taking her show on the road from North Delta to Tsawwassen for a third year is to increase exposure of her business and the fact she wants to support the community—she already hosts the work of local artists each Sunday at her tea room. Sutton says the Tsawwassen Sun Festival is tops in her mind in terms of the community celebrations she attends thanks to its jam-packed events and organization. —Philip Raphael

The City of Richmond is urging the government to re-think closing of Kitsilano Coast Guard base. Concerns are once that facility is shut down, the Sea Island facility could become overtaxed and result in longer emergency response times. On Sunday night a hovercraft from Sea Island was deployed in a rescue effort near Westham Island after two boats collided, injuring four people.

But Christy Clark, just like love itself, is a fickle thing. When the media recently covered a story about how Enbridge’s oil-filled beds have a history of springing leaks that can cause voteloosing political damage, Clark panicked.

She jumped off the Enbridge bed so fast she almost fell into the arms of BC NDP leader Adrian Dix. There is no need for British Columbians to watch farcical comedy on TV; the slapstick antics of capricious Christy Clark are far more bizarre.

smartly dressed young people present their many talents to the reviewing officer and the audience. Much praise and thanks are due to the many volunteers who mentor both male and female cadets in flight training, survival, search and rescue, first aid, band,

drill team, leadership, biathlon, to name but a few. I wish these opportunities had existed when I was a youngster. With future citizens like these, we are indeed in good hands.

EDITORIAL

Taking too many for the team What do the loss of Delta farmland, the paving over of ancient aboriginal sites on the Fraser River and Enbridge's planned Northern Gateway oil pipeline to Kitimat all have in common? All three are sacrifices B.C. is being asked to make so the rest of Canada can use B.C. ports to exploit rising trade with Asia. Agricultural land is being carved off in blocks big and small to convert into port-related development or highway improvements. The South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR) last year rolled over some of the province's oldest First Nations archaeological sites near the Alex Fraser Bridge. That may have gone relatively unnoticed but most Lower Mainland motorists know their commutes are increasingly slowed by trucks clogging the roads and longer trains holding up traffic – more symptoms of the pressure to make Metro Vancouver Canada's west coast super port. Now, after a rising tide of public opposition to the Northern Gateway pipeline, Premier Christy Clark has vowed to block it without world-leading environmental protection and a big share of benefits for B.C. She has her eye on the $81-billion tax bonanza governments stand to reap from the pipeline. Should Ottawa attempt to force it through, the province threatens to bog Enbridge down in permit approvals and even deny the project electricity from BC Hydro. Standing up to Alberta and Ottawa might make good politics in the dying year of a possibly doomed government. But such posturing likely rings hollow for local environmental groups like the Burns Bog Conservation Society that have spent years fighting the SFPR over the threat it poses to the bog and wildlife habitat along the Fraser. Whether it's the new Enbridge pipeline, the expanded Kinder Morgan pipeline proposal or simply more expansion of port terminals, all of this boils down to the same thing: an expectation B.C. suck it up and accept inconvenience, risk and environmental or other losses to benefit the rest of Canada. If we are being asked, over and over, to take one for Team Canada, maybe it is time to consider seeking a new deal.

A 13-year-old Ladner teen survives sudden cardiac death at the local McDonald's after a friend and a restaurant employee jump into action MARIA SPITALE-LEISK REPORTER

O

n a pleasant July 8 evening Ladner's Jackson Goodman was watching soccer at Holly Park and joking around with his friends, like any normal 13- year-old on summer vacation. Around 10 p.m., the youths gravitated towards the local McDonald’s on Ladner Trunk Road, where Jackson randomly ran into another friend, Mitch Winter, 16, who had been watching lacrosse nearby. A clean-cut, lanky guy with light blue eyes, Jackson approached the counter to order some grub. But he fell short, his face and body hitting the floor. From where he was seated, Winter witnessed his friend’s body shaking uncontrollably on the ground. He rushed to Jackson’s side and then saw his face. “It was scary. I literally saw the life leave

his eyes,” recalls Winter. Meanwhile, McDonald’s employee Shane Symans was just going on his break when the incident arose. “The first thing I noticed was that he [Jackson] was ridiculously pale,” says Symans. That’s when the 21-year-old sprung into action, having never been exposed to such a critical situation before. He placed the obligatory call to 911. But it’s what happened in the following 10 or so minutes that quite possibly saved a young boy's life. Quick action The 911 dispatcher on the other end of the phone coached Symans on CPR. Winter was recruited to perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on Jackson—who at that point had a faint pulse but was not breathing— while Symans took care of the chest compressions.

‘Seeing a kid that I know literally dying—my gut instincy kicked in.’ — Mitch Winter

“Seeing a kid that I know literally dying— my gut instinct kicked in,” says Winter. While the two worked on Jackson, his brother Eric, who was at that same lacrosse game a couple minutes away, was notified of his condition. A hysterical Eric, after seeing his brother lying there lifeless on the tiled McDonald’s floor, quickly called their mom. Cathie Goodman was readying herself for bed when her cell phone rang. “I knew from [Eric’s] voice that it wasn’t good,” she says.

Entering the McDonald’s in her pajamas, Cathie’s collapsed to her knees. She laid at her son’s feet and started praying. Simultaneously, a makeshift prayer circle formed around Jackson’s from his Ladner Christian Fellowship youth group friends who he had been out with that evening. “We all just leaned over him and starting praying,” says Cathie. It was pretty intense. A lot of emotions from a lot of our kids. As a Christian, I knew God was all I had. That he could fix my son. He placed guardian angels around my son.” After a seemingly endless five minutes Jackson began taking huge gasps of air. However, his rescuers didn’t breathe a sigh of relief, not knowing if it was good or bad sign. Once paramedics and Delta Fire officials arrived on the scene, Symans was able to take a step back and put it all into perspective.

His boss, Ladner McDonald's owner Steve Krawchuk, is singing Symans' praises after learning of the incident. "This kid is incredible," says Krawchuk. "He's the type that the customers say you should move into management. He's a superstar." That is exactly what Krawchuk is in the process of doing—grooming Symans for a management role at the restaurant. As for Winter, whose own dad suffered a heart attack last summer, he wants to be signed up for CPR too. "Yeah I will take a course and become legit," he says. reporter@southdeltaleader.com

Making a recovery Jackson woke up in BC Children’s Hospital two days after his health scare known as sudden cardiac death syndrome. According to the Canadian Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes Foundation, an estimated 700 children and young people die from undiagnosed cardiac conditions each year in Canada without notice. A seemingly healthy teenager, Jackson doesn’t remember much from the day of that unforgettable episode. On Tuesday, sitting inside the McDonald’s, mere feet away from where he collapsed, Jackson appears collected—the picture of health. Under his skin, the situation is a little more complicated. A pacemaker is ensuring the electrical components of Jackson’s heart keep time properly. “I’ll be more careful with my heart now,” he promises. When asked how he feels after having a neardeath experience, Jackson laughs. “It’s just kind of nuts because I didn’t expect it to be this early,” he says. Winter chimes in nodding in agreement, saying Jackson and his brother are so athletic. Besides being sidelined for six more weeks from sports, the only other impediment to Jackson’s regular routine will be a check in with the doctors twice a year. Today Jackson and his mother are reuniting with Symans for the first time since that fateful evening. Looking towards the two young men who performed CPR, an emotional Cathie says she is thankful they were there. “They are going to have a second mother for the rest of their lives,” she added. “You can’t really articulate that kind of gratitude.” The Ladner community—the family’s church, Ladner Minor Baseball, neighbours and friends— has rallied around the family like you wouldn’t believe, says Cathie. During Tuesday’s reunion, the topic of CPR comes up. Cathie is now pushing for young people to be trained on the life saving measure. “I think it will empower kids, if they know CPR,”

Islanders playing catch up Delta loses game one of Jr. A lacrosse finals 12-7 to Coquitlam The Delta Islanders found themselves in a familiar position Tuesday night ( July 31)— down a game in the B.C. Jr. A lacrosse finals after losing 12-7 to the Coquitlam Adanacs at the Coquitlam Sports Arena. The Islanders are in the finals after being on the brink of elimination in the best of five semifinals against the New Westminster Salmonbellies. The Ladner-based team rebounded from two games down to win three in a row and face another uphill battle that resumed with game two of the finals Aug. 2 after the Leader's dead-

line. In g a m e o n e, t h e Adanacs jumped out to an early 2-0 lead as Robert Chruch scored a pair of for Coquitlam who topped the regular season standings with a record of 16 wins and five losses. Delta's Mitch Parker and Logan Schuss replied to knot the score at 2-2. But the Adanacs' offence lit up the scoreboard with another five goals in the first period, while the Islanders managed just two more thanks to Eli McLaughlin and Schuss to go into the break down 7-4. The middle frame was a little less frantic as both teams traded goal

Why should I get my hearing tested, I don’t have a problem hearing. By Dr. James, Nelles, Au.D., Doctor of Audiology Registered Audiologist, Connect Hearing Tsawwassen People don’t think about hearing until they notice they are missing things others seem to hear. Getting a baseline hearing test before you notice you are having problems makes good sense. If you have a baseline, future tests can monitor if there has been a change in sensitivity and corrective actions can be made. For adults, being able to hear is important for work and socializing. As people age, there is a tendency to lose some hearing. The first red flag is noticing difficulty hearing in group situations. To me, it likely means damage to the outer hair cells in the cochlea. The outer hair cells are partly responsible for sending the sound up to the brain where it is heard. The thing is, people don’t know what they are missing and accept that what they hear is ‘normal’ hearing, but that isn’t always the case. Even mild hearing loss can mean the loss of valuable conversation or missing a good punch line. Recently, I had a call for an emergency hearing test. A fellow was driving when a tire on a big rig blew creating a loud noise. He called to see if I could check his hearing and luckily I could. Fortunately there was no apparent damage from the incident… but I don’t know for sure because I didn’t have a previous test to compare. If I had a Call today for a FREE Caring Consult. record of it, I could be more confident that nothing, in fact, did affect his hearing. For a complimentary hearing screening at our Tsawwassen clinic, give me a call today at 604-948-2821.
