City selling land to Onni developer Could net $12.5 million from south Bonson property by M on i sh a M ar ti n s staff reporter

The City of Pitt Meadows is set to net more than $12 million by selling off 4.67 hectares of farmland to a large developer. The deal with the Onni Group has yet to be finalized, but will provide the city, currently saddled with $16 million in debt, with a much-needed injection of cash. Mayor Deb Walters said the sale to Onni for $12,250,000 will most likely be finalized by Thursday. The property for sale is located south of Airport Way, north of the Osprey Village development, and is currently zoned agricultural. However, the area is designated as medium-density residential under the City’s Official Community Plan, and is not part of the Agricultural Land Reserve. see Sale, p4
Teen’s suicide foreshadowed by video Amanda Todd tells story of how she was bullied online and at school by Ro b e r t M a ng el sdor f staff reporter

as a “sudden death,” as is typical in cases of suicide. No details have yet been released. According to police, Todd spent most of her Amanda life in Maple Ridge, but moved to Coquitlam to attend school. In her video, Todd uses white
hand-written placards to tell the story of how she was harassed by a stranger on the Internet, while Sarah McLachlan’s I Will Remember You plays in the background. She describes how in the seventh grade she used a friend’s webcam to talk to people on the Internet, and was convinced to show someone online a revealing image of herself. “[They] called me stunning, beautiful, perfect, etc.,” she states in the video. “[They] wanted me to flash … so I did.” see Amanda, p14

Last month, a girl identifying herself as Amanda Todd posted a video on Youtube called, “My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self harm.” In the video, Todd describes how she was bullied online and at school, about her struggles with drugs and alcohol and harming herself. She also describes an incident where she was attacked and taunted at school. Ridge Meadows RCMP confirmed Todd, 15, died Wednesday in Coquitlam. Her death is being investigated by Coquitlam RCMP

Inspiring words from an Olympian by Rob er t M a n g e ls d or f staff reporter
alking through the halls of Maple Ridge secondary, Canadian Olympian Karina Leblanc can’t help but feel like a kid again.
This is where LeBlanc, who won a bronze medal with the Canadian women’s soccer team at the 2012 London Summer Olympics, spent her formative years. “It’s weird how much of it’s changed,” she says. The lockers are a different colour now, and there’s an entire wing of the school that wasn’t there when LeBlanc was a student, but some things remain. Like the Class of 1997 grad class photo hanging on the wall of the school’s main hallway with her picture in it. Or the dozens of teachers and coaches who helped guide LeBlanc down a path of success. “I wouldn’t have got to where I am without all of their help,” she says. “That’s why I’m here.” Hundreds of Grade 8 and 9 students crowded into the school’s gym to hear LeBlanc tell her story Wednesday afternoon. “It’s pretty special to come back here and speak to my own school,” she told the crowd. For the past 15 years, LeBlanc has lived out of suitcase while chasing her dream of being an elite soccer player. After attending the University of Nebraska on a full-ride scholarship, LeBlanc played pro soccer for teams in Boston, Montreal, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington DC. Not being able to lay down roots is one of the many sacrifices she’s made in pursuit of her dreams “That’s why I love coming back to Maple Ridge,” she says. “It’s the one place that feels like home.” LeBlanc spent the first eight years of her life on the tiny Caribbean island republic of Dominica. Her family moved to the U.S. before settling in Maple Ridge. With her thick Caribbean accent and being one of the only black children at Fairview elementary, LeBlanc says she was very shy as a child because she felt so different. But sports changed that. “As I started to get better, I gained a lot more confidence and I came out of my shell,” she says. Her dream of playing elite-lev-

el soccer wasn’t typical of most 12-year-olds at the time, especially considering women’s soccer wasn’t yet included in the Olympics, and professional women’s soccer did not yet exist in North America. “It was a different dream,” she admits. But soccer wasn’t her only love. Back when she was a student MRSS, LeBlanc was best remembered as the star of the senior girls’ basketball team. “We didn’t even have our own soccer team then,” she says. Senior girls’ basketball coach Don Herman remembers LeBlanc as a leader on and off the hardwood. “She was one of the top defensive players in the province,” he says. “I have no doubt she could have got a scholarship to play basketball if that’s
what she wanted.” Back in those days, LeBlanc was in good company, says Herman. “There was a whole group of kids at the time who were outstanding athletes, and they were all friends,” he says. That group included Chrissy Kogler and Ashley Newport, who both went on to play NCAA soccer; Russell Huggon and Emilio Bottiglieri, who both played pro soccer in Scotland; and Graig Merritt, who played pro baseball at the AA level. “We all wanted to play at the next level, and we all decided the next step for us was college, so we all pushed each other,” says LeBlanc. A critical step to achieving your goals is to surround yourself with people with similar goals, she adds. Many of them were in attendance
this past January in Vancouver as LeBlanc and Team Canada beat Mexico to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics. “I hadn’t seen a lot of them in 10 years,” LeBlanc says. “There must have been 40 of them there, it was amazing.” Her mother Winsome and father Vans have been there for every World Cup and Olympic game appearance. LeBlanc says the support from her family, including her sister Sharma and brother Kurt, has always been key to her success. In the LeBlanc household, if the kids wanted to watch a half hour of television, they first had to complete an hour’s worth of homework. Sports were encouraged, but not at the expense of academics. “They never told me I couldn’t do anything,” she says of her parents. “But they told me nothing would come easy for me.” The secret to LeBlanc’s success is no secret: it’s hard work. After LeBlanc was passed over for the U-16 provincial team, she decided to train for an extra 15 minutes every practice. The extra time she put in paid off, and the next year she made the U-18 B.C. team, and a few
“That’s the difference between a dream and a goal. With a goal, you have a plan, and you make it happen no matter what.” Karina LeBlanc For the time being, LeBlanc says she wants to give back and help inspire the next generation of athletes to carry Team Canada’s Olympic torch in the future. “The power of teachers and coaches is so important, they had such an impact on me,” she says. “What inspires me today is showing others that anything is possible.”

months later was playing for national team. Despite playing both soccer and basketball at an elite level, Herman said LeBlanc never once missed a practice or a game. “She managed to do both,” he says. And her grades didn’t suffer for it, either. “She was one of the top one or two students in the school academically,” recalls Herman. “I use her as an example quite often. Some kids think you can’t do it all, but she’s proof you can.” That tenacity has been the common thread throughout LeBlanc’s career. When her doctor told her in 2004 that her knee injury would prevent her from ever playing soccer at the same level again, she went to different doctors until she found one said he could get her back to game shape. When Team Canada finished last in the 2011 World Cup, she and her teammates didn’t lose hope, and managed to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics the following January in Vancouver. When Team Canada suffered a controversial and heartbreaking loss to the U.S. in the Olympic semifinals, LeBlanc and her teammates regrouped to beat France 1-0 and give Canada its first traditional team sport medal in the Olympics since 1936. “That’s the difference between a dream and a goal,” she says. “With a goal, you have a plan, and you make it happen no matter what.” With the demise of the Women’s Professional League last year, LeBlanc’s club soccer future is uncertain. There is hope the WPL will reform in some manner for this coming season, and if that were to happen LeBlanc says she would love to play in Los Angeles or back home in Vancouver if the Whitecaps were to get a franchise.

Car Care Local Conservatives don’t support party leader with Cyril Barry
VEHICLE STORAGE For those of you that are fortunate enough to own a summer vehicle, it is that time of year when you must make plans for its annual winter hibernation. If your storage area is dirt, grass, gravel or some other form of uncovered earth then you will want to get the tires off the ground using some pieces of 2x6 or the like. Place a piece of tar paper between the ground and the wood to act as a moisture barrier, yes this really works. If you are planning on covering your vehicle with a tarpaulin to keep out the weather you must make sure that the “tarp” does not come in contact with the vehicle. If the tarp does not have an air space between it and the object it is covering then condensation will form and be trapped between the vehicle and the tarp. This moisture will then wreak havoc on your vehicle’s exterior and find its way inside the vehicle as well. So take the time to cover your ride properly and pay attention to water runoff. Unless you get the water away from pooling under the vehicle it will cause trouble. If your storage area is covered and protected from the weather, but not necessarily enclosed, then a weatherproof car cover is the ticket. You will want to disconnect and remove the battery as soon as you park it. Keep the battery in a dry, warm spot and hook it up to a low amp automatic trickle charger. Batteries lose their charge slowly over time, referred to as surface discharge, so it is important to keep them charged over the winter. If you have access to an electrical outlet, a small fan driven interior car heater will do away with the interior moisture and mildew problem quite well. Just be sure to allow some air to enter the interior for circulation – this is a must! If your storage area is heated, you are going to run into a few special problems that will need to be addressed. Heat will cause the fluids to expand which leads to leakage, gasket and even seal damage. If you have an automatic transmission the lightweight oil in the pan will expand and almost always leak at the pan gasket. The only way to properly deal with this problem is to drain the pan; remember to fill it up before you try to restart in the spring! Always keep a 50:50 mix of antifreeze and water in your coolant system, keep your gas tank(s) half full, they need room for expansion. If required, add some good quality fuel treatment; avoid methyl hydrate.
Join others in calling for a new leader by P hil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter
The executive of the B.C. Conservative party in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows is joining in the dissident movement aimed at kicking out leader John Cummins, saying they can’t work with him. Thursday, the staff of the constituency association were supposed to join others around the province, saying they need a new leader. The executive has reached the conclusion that they want to work with Cummings, “but have found it untenable. “They found they simply can’t rally around John Cummins as he is now. He simply doesn’t listen to good advice and that’s the bottom line,” said Robbie Armstrong, president of the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Conservative constituency association. The hope is that as more constituency associations speak out, Cummins will take the hint. Armstrong became con-
stituency president in July and reached the conclusion a month later, “that indeed it would be in the party’s best interests for him to resign.” Cummins was confirmed as party leader in August, when most in the party decided against a leadership review. That was followed by a tumultuous Wednesday in which Cummins gave dissidents a noon deadline to say that they supported him or to resign from the party. Only 14 did so, while another 381 new members signed up during September. But Armstrong said Cummins and the advice he’s receiving is too far to the right of centre to win votes in next May’s election. He added he’ll even have to decide whether the B.C. Conservative Party is viable in the riding and whether it’s worthwhile recruiting members and raising money. “None of us wanted to do this,” Armstrong said Thursday. “We would have closed ranks behind him, but he never reached out. It’s an incoherent message that’s coming from the provincial board as far as I’m concerned.” Cummins, though, said in a release that the party “has risen
substantially in public opinion polls, and we have recruited outstanding individuals who will represent the party in the May 14, 2013 general election. “Importantly, at our party’s annual general meeting on September 22, a solid majority – more than 70 per cent – of members voted against a review of my leadership,” he said in a news release. “Consequently, I foresee no circumstances under which I would not be leading the BC Conservatives to victory next May.” If the party decides not to run candidate, the Liberals would fare better against the surging NDP because there would be no split in the right of centre vote. Liberal nomination candidate for the riding Doug Bing agreed that the B.C. Conservative party implosion will help next election. “It’s certainly a positive step for the Liberal party. “I think what they’re doing, they’re destroying their credibility with the public.” Armstrong said advisers are taking the party too far to the right. “We can’t sell it. “Half of the active CAs [con-
stituency associations] are in open revolt.” It’s not that members have anything personal against Cummins, he added. “He continues to exercise in my mind decision making that is not reflective of the majority of voters to the right of centre.”
“He continues to exercise in my mind decision making that is not reflective of the majority of voters to the right of centre.” Robbie Armstrong, riding association Instead, the party needs to move to the centre, he said. Armstrong said Cummins hopes that similar statements from constituency associations will make Cummins reconsider. “We have to live with it until we can put enough pressure on him, until we can get him to realize what he’s doing to the party. “It’s very fluid over the next 48 hours as to what’s going on.”
Developers asked to integrate ’Osprey Village style’ Sale from front
The OCP allows for 31 to 100 townhouse or low-rise apartment units per hectare, meaning up to 467 residential units could potentially be built on the property. The city has previously indicated it would support rezoning for the “right project.” Developers interested in purchasing the property were asked to come up with a de-
sign that integrates the style of the nearby Osprey Village development, and incorporates green building standards. The developer would also be responsible for building a “green corridor” along the western edge of the property, providing a natural trail connecting Osprey Village to the Pitt Meadows Athletic Fields. Council, though, has yet to decide what to do with the
cash once the sale to Onni is finalized. The city could use it to pay down debt or fund future capital projects. “Council will consider and provide direction on the allocation of the proceeds once the sale has closed,” said the city’s director of finance, Dean Rear.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views
Stirring up dissent John Cummins has issued an ultimatum — B.C. Conservatives who are publicly saying he should step down as party leader have to either get behind him or leave the party. Cummins, who recently received 70 per cent backing from party members, is right to feel aggrieved, but the message being sent isn’t one to cause undecided voters to flock to the party. Instead, it sounds like top-down management, something that can be notoriously difficult to enforce. This is particularly true in an organization like the B.C. Conservatives. The party was all but dead for years until picking up a lot of steam in the past 18 months. There is no tradition of ironclad party discipline, and even in parties with tighter discipline like the NDP, there is no shortage of dissent. However, it is worth taking a closer look at just who is manufacturing the dissent. On the eve of the recent party AGM, the B.C. Liberals organized a press conference to trumpet the fact that former Conservative candidate John Martin was coming over to their party. This was designed to set the stage for doubt, and it worked beautifully. The following day, after Cummins was endorsed by party members, MLA John Van Dongen quit the party in mid-AGM – in part because he and Cummins did not work well together. While Van Dongen certainly isn’t taking orders from the Liberals, the party he quit six months ago, it is quite likely that backroom Liberals are behind some of the continued dissent in Conservative ranks. Two former directors who were agitating against Cummins at the AGM have now joined the Liberals. One can be sure their brains are being mined for information. The Liberals want to take out the Conservatives before the next election and have the anti-NDP vote to themselves. That may be a tall order. If the Conservatives stay sufficiently organized to run candidates in all ridings, the B.C. Liberals will lose. That’s because there are enough former Liberal supporters ready to vote for an alternative. The B.C. Conservatives have little chance of electing any MLAs. However, they still have enormous potential to take votes from the Liberals. If they can get five per cent of the vote next May, this will ensure the NDP forms the next provincial government. – Black Press

How to better manage health system H
ospitals consume about half of the health care budgets in every province and only serve a relatively small percentage of the population. It would, therefore, make much sense and could result in considerable savings if we take a hard look Health Care how these expensive Marco Terwiel institutions are managed. Here are a few examples. In essence, a hospital is like a hotel with a number of added services. Not by any means a five-star one, either. The older ones are often more like a two-star or lesser facility. When you arrive, you park your car (for a price) and you enter an unimaginative lobby with, generally, uncomfortable chairs. If lucky, there will be a volunteer on duty directing you to take a number and wait your turn for the registration desk. If there is no volunteer on duty and you have not discovered you need to take a number, you are in for a long wait. Even with taking a number upon arrival, you can still expect slow service. You are assigned a room, which you may have to share with a total stranger, who may be hosting germs you do not want to go halves with. I expect those conditions when I work in a remote settlement with limited accom-
uestion of the week:
modations for visitors, but here in the Lower Mainland? The bed turns out to be high tech, but not quite as comfortable as the one at home. You kind of anticipated that. For compensation, you have some buttons to play with, and these buttons make the bed do all kinds of amazing things. Not always what you had in mind, though, when your feet start heading for the ceiling and your head gets a lot more blood than wanted or needed. Hotels of that caliber, minus the high tech beds, will charge you $30 or less a night. In contrast, the hospital stay costs the taxpayer anywhere from several hundred to many thousands of dollars a night. Unlike any hotel manager, the administration has very little idea how and why this not so great and often not so clean facility is so expensive. Simply put, there has been very little incentive for hospital administrators to find out. They get a certain amount of money every year, based on previous budgets and are expected to keep the place open. They do know where most of the money goes, but do not know if the taxpayer receives value for that money, and they do not really care since they are not required to think in a businesslike way . In my mind, a hospital is a facility where patients receive care that cannot be provided elsewhere. The reality is, there are an unacceptable number of beds occupied for days or even weeks by patients just waiting for a procedure or tests. Part of that inappropriate utilization of expensive resources is caused by caring physi-

cians wanting the best for their patients as soon as possible. It takes a lot of time and convincing the authorities that one is really sick and needs to be admitted ahead of the queue. Stretching the truth a bit will make the bed managers relent and allow an admission. Once admitted, the patient gets priority for investigations or procedures. What otherwise would take weeks or months, is now accomplished in a matter of days. Fair? That depends on your point of view. If the patient would have died waiting, and now gets his lifesaving treatment in short order, then this slightly underhanded approach is eminently fair. Then there are the frail and elderly who cannot go home after they have been treated for the condition that prompted the admission. They have no place to go, since there is a wait list, sometimes a lengthy one. It is an unfortunate reality that there will be no room until someone else dies. I wrote an article in the 1970s that Canada needed to provide 300,000 long-term care beds by the turn of the century to accommodate the predictable increase in seniors needing such care. Little was done and now the health care system is forced to spend vast amounts of money caring for folks in expensive acute care hospitals when these patients could receive better and cheaper care in well-managed longterm health facilities. Talk about denial. Dr. Marco Terwiel is a retired family physician who lives in Maple Ridge.

The News/letters Collecting tolls is a matter of trust? Editor, The News: Re: No break for Golden Ears Bridge (The News, Sept. 19). After deciding not to give TReO my credit information on line, I decided to go to its office and pay to register my vehicle in cash, thus eliminating the necessity for it to have my credit information – I thought. I was told that in order to get the benefits of the 20 free trips, and the reduced rate of $1.50 per trip, I’d have to set up an account, giving TReO either my bank account or credit card numbers as a method of payment. In other words, TReO doesn’t trust me to pay it when it bills me, but I’m supposed to trust TReO with my credit card information and hope it doesn’t make a mistake and automatically withdraw the money they say I owe it. I don’t feel the public should be held hostage, and be forced to give out sensitive credit information simply to get the benefits offered. Also, TReO has already made billing mistakes, yet we’re supposed to trust it? As a possible solution to this bullying, I thought what I’d do is to take out a new credit card with a very low limit, then once I’m enrolled in the program, simply cancel the card. As an aside, I was surprised to be told by the receptionist, TReO is in no way associated with TransLink, yet it takes payments for both bridges. And the Golden Ears Bridge is a Trans Link project?

‘Mayor worried about legacy’ Editor, The News: Re: Pitt petition against NLC application growing (The News, Oct. 10). Mayor Deb Walters was elected to represent the residents of Pitt Meadows, but she seems more interested in creating a legacy for herself. She cast the deciding vote over taking the land north of the Lougheed Highway out of the ALR, despite loud resident opposition. Her statement in your Oct. 10 edition is very apt” “You know what the sad thing is, and it’s frustrating for me, is that people think you don’t listen because you disagree with them”. While our mayor may listen, she chooses to ignore the protesting, and as long as she has three council members supporting her, can virtually do as she pleases. Whether it’s raising property taxes for the next five years or blacktop on farm land, the mayor is showing us what her vision of Pitt Meadows is. Archie Blankers Pitt Meadows
Wouldn’t cut it Editor, The News: Re: Pitt petition against NLC application growing (The News, Oct. 10). Why not just widen Old
The suggestion of widening Old Dewdney Trunk Road wouldn’t solve the current problems. Dewdney? Have you actually been down here and researched your suggestions. Try 7-8:30 a.m. or 4-6 p.m. high traffic and you can try to get out of my driveway. I’m sure council has looked at a number of possibilities, but anyone with half a brain should realize that those of us who live on Old Dewdney Trunk Road, if it was widened, would end up with the road right in their house.

Brian R. Marshall
My house is close to the road, unlike some properties. Widening the road would put a whole new meaning on ‘reach out and touch someone.’ I don’t complain about the traffic, as I was well aware of it when I moved here five years ago, although traffic has increased. Daily I see farmers being harassed by people who need to get somewhere five minutes earlier once they are on
the road instead of getting up earlier. And the school bus that stops, driver’s just keep on flying by it. Those problems will not be solved by a farm lane. Common sense dictates the drainage ditches have to be open for the rain and run-off, which is a necessity in this area as there are no storm sewers. Covered ditches and culverts just wouldn’t cut it.

Artist doesn’t like new public art by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter
Put it to a vote, next time, says Maple Ridge artist Vladimir Kolosov. The district’s second piece of public art, titled Balance, just installed on Lougheed Highway and 224th Street, outside Westminster Savings, has Kolosov questioning the art and the process that led to its selection. “I’m a resident of Maple Ridge and this is a wonderful city. And, of course, I’d like to see something wonderful here,” he said. But the metal sculpture fitted with stained Plexiglass doesn’t measure up, he said. It says a lot by itself, he says, comparing it to the The Beast, the metal statue of a horse, outside Maple Ridge municipal hall. “This project clearly demonstrates lack of any professionalism of those people who were involved in jurying and selecting of the project to be installed, people who are paid from taxpayer money, our money,” he said in a letter. The artists did their best, he added. Instead, Kolosov proposes a different method of deciding which public art projects will receive funding. “I think that public art should be approved by the people, not by the steering committee, or whoever, but by the people.” To further discussion, Kolosov
The art project is meant to resemble a maple tree, not a martini glass. added an element to a photo he took of the sculpture – a swizzle stick – which makes the art look like a martini glass. “I showed this to a lot of people and they are laughing,” he said. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said it’s hard to please everybody. “You don’t talk about politics and religion. Art is probably the third. It’s a totally subjective thing.” Daykin pointed out the public art steering committee has artists on it. The corner of Lougheed Highway and 224th Street looks much better today than five years ago, when it was an empty parking lot, he said. If you put every thing to a vote, you’d never get anything done.” Barb Duncan, curator of the art gallery in the Arts Centre Theatre, pointed out that the artists, Claudia Cuesta and Bill Baker, known as art.site, have had their work displayed in the District of North
Vancouver, where they won a 2011 award of excellence for public art, as well as in Vancouver, Surrey and Richmond. Their work in Vancouver also won an excellence award in 2005 from the Urban Development Institute. The metal sculpture resembles maple trees, particularly those after which the district was named on McIver farm. “It’s specific to Maple Ridge – in that Maple Ridge is very much in tune with its setting,” Cuesta said when installing the work. And trees are the most balanced structures there is, she added. Six panels of laminated glass are fixed into the branches. Cuesta added later there were many participants in the competition, each were carefully reviewed and they were honoured to have been chosen. “The selection process is fair and democratic and uses international standards for the selection of public art,” she added in a letter. “The whole idea is that it will change and dance to the seasons – and the weather. It will cast reflections over here, (the entrance to the credit union). It will turn out beautiful,” she said during the installation. The project cost $40,000, split equally between the Westminster Savings and the District of Maple Ridge. Maple Ridge’s first art public art project is located outside the leisure centre and is titled Tendance.

An undercover officer helped police gather crucial evidence in a case against a bouncer accused of an assault at a Maple Ridge bar that left a father permanently brain damaged. Details of the operation that targeted Joseph Robert Calla were revealed this week in an application by RCMP for a publication ban. Mounties want to make sure the identity of the police officer, who was planted in a jail cell with Calla, is not revealed. â€œUndercover operations are by their very nature extremely dangerous,â€? Staff Sgt. Kevin Mann, the officer-in-charge of Edivisionâ€™s undercover unit, said in an affidavit filed in court. â€œIf an undercover operation is exposed or suspected, the undercover operators are at

Police believe Delane Parentâ€™s injuries were caused by a blow to the head or neck. risk of serious harm or death.â€? The Mountie in question belongs to a pool of specially trained officers who typically work undercover for their entire careers and may work on multiple operations at the same time. Should any information about the identity of the officer be revealed, Mann added, his safety would be compromised. In Callaâ€™s case, the officer used his real first name as a pseudonym. In the affidavit, Mann said, the officer is currently involved in an ongoing murder investigation that began June 8 and is expected to last several more weeks. He added the purpose of the covert operation against Calla was to create an atmosphere
in which he would â€œvoluntarily divulgeâ€? information about his role in the assault. A trial for Calla on one count of aggravated assault is set to begin in New Westminster Supreme Court on Oct. 22. Calla was charged with assault following a fight that took place outside the Wolf Bar, at 22336 Lougheed Highway in Maple Ridge, around 2 a.m. on June 13, 2010. Police said Delane Parent was examined at the scene by paramedics after the alleged fight, and was able to drive himself home as the injuries did not appear to be serious. But two days later, on June 15, he was discovered lying semiconscious in his living room by his brother AndrĂŠ Parent, who was
called by his brotherâ€™s co-workers when Del didnâ€™t show up for work. Doctors believe Delâ€™s injuries were caused by a blow to the head or neck. AndrĂŠ Parent said Del remains in a longterm care facility, but has lost everything, including his home. â€œHe is progressing slowly,â€? said Parent. â€œHe can walk but he still canâ€™t talk.â€? Calla, who worked as a bouncer at the Wolf, was one of two employees charged in connection with the assault. The second employee - David Garnet Andrew Hecker - no longer faces charges. The owner of the Wolf Bar, Chris Fairfax, has previously claimed Del was the aggressor. In 2010, Fairfax said Del and a friend came into the bar just as it was closing and asked to be sold alcohol. They seemed drunk, were told to leave by bar staff, and complied. But Del began fighting with a customer as he walked out of the bar, said Fairfax. Thatâ€™s when a doorman intervened, he added, and both he and Del went to the floor. Fairfax said Del hit his head on a curb.

Accused in Pitt fatal to stand trial Andelina Kristina Hecimovic faces two counts of dangerous driving causing death by M o ni s h a M a r tin s staff reporter
A woman charged in connection with a crash that killed a young couple in Pitt Meadows two years ago will be tried in Supreme Court. Andelina Kristina Hecimovic has been ordered to stand trial on two counts of dangerous driving causing death, following a preliminary inquiry in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court that ended Wednesday. The purpose of a preliminary inquiry is to determine whether there is sufficient evidence for a trial. Rebecca ‘Beckie’ Dyer, 19, and her boyfriend, Johnny De Oliveira, 21, were killed around midnight Oct. 19 when a Toyota Paseo, driven by Hecimovic and heading east on Lougheed Highway, skidded sideways over a concrete median near Harris Road. The Toyota flipped over and slammed into the roof of the Suzuki Swift that Dyer and De Oliveira were traveling in. Dyer and a friend had just been picked up by her boyfriend from a sold-out Justin Bieber concert in Vancouver. They were returning home to Pitt Meadows after dropping off Dyer’s friend in Maple Ridge. They were only two blocks away from the apartment they shared with Dyer’s mom, Debbie. Investigators allege Hecimovic, then 23, was driving aggressively when she crashed.
Petition Copies of the petition can be found on the Families for Justice Facebook page. For links, visit mapleridgenews.com.
This week’s preliminary inquiry was the first time De Oliveira’s and Dyer’s family and friends came face to face with Hecimovic. Their supporters filled one side of the court room. Debbie Dyer was dressed in purple, her daughter’s favourite colour, and De Oliveira’s family wore lime-green, the eye-popping hue of his beloved 4X4.
“We hope to get some sort of justice,” said Dyer, who is now part of the activist group Families for Justice. The group was founded by Markita Kaulius, whose daughter Kassandra was killed by a drunk driver in 2011. They are lobbying for the creation of a vehicular homicide charge; an immediate two-year driving ban for drivers found to be impaired; mandatory minimum sentences and additional mandatory two-year sentences for
drunk drivers who flee the scene. A petition spearheaded by the group has collected almost 12,000 signatures and Dyer is helping to gather more. She says it’s her way of keeping Beckie’s memory alive. Beckie’s motto was a quote by Mahatma Ghandi: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” “She was always helping people,” said Dyer. “So was Johnny. We’ve just got to keep that image alive of her wanting to change the world.”

Policing costs ring in at $17 million RCMP workload more than twice that of Abbotsford’s by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter
Maple Ridge’s Mounties have twice the workload as their city cop counterparts in Abbotsford, according to a recent presentation to council. RCMP in this district have 84 cases per officer compared to 42 for each City of Abbotsford police officer, say statistics from 2010. Maple Ridge also has a higher crime rate (the number of crimes reported per 1,000 population) – 95 compared to 64 in Abbotsford, which has a municipal force. Top RCMP brass were at council last week to review RCMP costs to the district, including Assist. Commissioner Norm Lipinsky and Chief Supt. Janice Armstrong, who used to run the Maple Ridge detachment. Total policing costs to taxpayers this year ring in at more than $17 million, one of the largest costs of running the district. That will pay for 89 officers this year, including constables, community safety officers, corporals and sergeants in the detachment, which also polices Pitt Meadows.
The detachment in downtown Maple Ridge has 89 officers this year. The report says there are 60 constables serving Maple Ridge, with yearly salaries topping out at $78,000, while a total of 22 officers cover Pitt Meadows. Maple Ridge also has three community safety officers, hired because of their cheaper costs, although their salaries top out $67,000. Those wages are due to increase by 3.11 per cent in 2013, bringing the total bill for salaries in the detachment to $7.5 million. Council heard that, overall, policing costs are jumping by 4.6 per cent next year, while costs of the regional teams, such as the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, have climbed 10 per cent. When it comes to overtime, Ridge Meadows
Supt. Dave Walsh said the detachment is trying to keep a limit on that. “Overtime for us isn’t a first resort, it’s a last resort.” However, the budget for overtime is jumping from 7.9 per cent in 2013 to $600,000, after years of remaining stable. “The overtime budget hasn’t increased for many years. So it’s time for an increase to meet our operational needs. “We have quite a tight time frame over overtime and how it is used,” Walsh explained. The reasons for bringing in officers for extra hours are to cover for those who are absent because of time spent testifying in court, covering special events, investigating complicated cases or covering for sick or vaca-

tioning officers. Approval from management is needed before constables rack up extra hours. One area where costs have jumped is for benefits, such as health care and pensions, which have increased by up to 15 per cent. One area where costs have dropped for cities and towns and district municipalities such as Maple Ridge is in the bill for integrated teams, such as police dog services. Thanks to the B.C. government now covering 70 per cent of the cost of regional teams, Maple Ridge will save about $150,000 a year. RCMP are trying to find cost savings and efficiencies by using civilians for some duties, such as forensic identification, getting communities involved in crime prevention, using integrated teams, saving on car washes and cellphones, and doing bulk purchasing. Max Xiao, regional director of finance and accounting, and Walsh walked council through the powerpoint presentation. Given the fact that shifts run 24/7, the number of officers on shift may not be as many officers on duty as one would think, Walsh said. Each watch has a unit commander, a sergeant, patrol corporal, about 10 investigators, plus traffic officers. “We do the best we can to keep our community safe. We do pro-active work as well as respond to calls for service. “Maple Ridge is a safe community. Overall, our citizens and our community are getting good value for their tax dollars,” Walsh said. “We recognize that policing is expensive. We make every effort we’re doing the right things right.” “We are aware of the need to be efficient and effective as we possibly can.” Walsh said one area that’s taking a lot of police time is responding to mental health calls, which often requires officers to wait in hospitals for care to be provided to individuals. Last year, they handled 665 such incidents. “This is a significant draw on police resources.” It’s an increasing challenge, but one not unique to Maple Ridge. Walsh said that when the economic times are tough, “We get busy. And in the past few years, we’ve been very busy.”

When Todd refused, she says the stranger sent the photo to her friends. “I can never get that photo back, it’s out there forever,” Todd’s placard reads. She then describes moving to a new city and a new school to escape her embarrassment, only to become the victim of bullying there by the girlfriend of a boy she was involved with.
“She threw me to the ground a punched me several times. Kids filmed it. I was all alone and left on the ground,” she states. “I felt like a joke in this world.” After the fight, Todd said she tried to drink bleach. “After I got home, all I saw on Facebook was, she deserved it … I hope she’s dead,” she states in the video. “They said I hope she sees this and kills herself.” Amanda describes using drugs and alcohol, and cutting herself. “I have no one,” her placard reads at the end of

However, the district can’t name the student, how long she attended CABE, what supports she received, what other schools she may have attended or how she died, citing privacy issues. “We were aware previously of the video, and regarding supports ... sup-

Thank you for leaving such a powerful message behind, even though it wasn’t on time to help you, hoping it can help others out there. RIP,” reads one comment. On Twitter, a young man wrote: “It makes me sick everyone who’s saying they didn’t bully her when they did. Just terrible.” One Youtube poster has started an online campaign to share Todd’s video in order to raise awareness about cyberbullying, and is encouraging Twitter users to use the #RIPAmandaTodd hashtag in her memory. “One of my sister’s friends just committed suicide six hours

Reverse changes to Fisheries Act: council Maple Ridge council has voted to give a piece of its mind to the federal government over changes to the Fisheries Act that kills protection of fish habitat. Politicians at Tuesday’s meeting demanded that Ottawa explain the scientific basis for making the changes. They also wanted the federal government to reverse those changes, which result in protection of only commercial, aboriginal or sports fisheries. Council also sought clarification of what the Fisheries Act means when “death or killing” of fish occurs. Maple Ridge is also seeking support for its stance. The resolution will be fired off to Metro Vancouver and its member
municipalities. Local MPs, MLAs, First Nations and the Union of B.C. Municipalities will also get copies. Council voted 6-1 in favour, with Coun. Mike Morden opposing. Morden said later he wanted to be sure council was addressing municipal issues and was concerned about being shut out of future consultation on the regulations.
Cut us in Council wants its big brother government in Ottawa to cough up some cash so it can move ahead with some of its pricier projects. Tuesday council called on the government to find a replacement for its Building Canada Plan which expires in
2014. Council made the request by endorsing a Federation of Canadian Municipalities campaign called Target 2014, which calls for the replacement of the Building Canada Plan. The government has said it will develop a new plan. And it wants the feds to adopt a new plan that will replace the $2 billion annually that funded municipal projects around the country. According to the FCM, Ottawa collects half of all tax dollars in Canada while provincial governments take 42 per cent, leaving eight per cent for cities, towns and municipal or rural districts. A staff report notes the district doesn’t have the cash to pay for bigger projects. It mentions two specifically, the exten-

sion of Abernethy Way to 256th Street which would provide a second access to the industrial parks in that area. An overpass over the CP Rail lines that would provide access to Albion Industrial Park would allow that area to develop. That was passed unanimously.
Homes higher up Approval has been given to raise the height of houses in upper Jackson Farm from nine to 11 metres and to narrow three of the roads in the new subdivision from 18 to 15 metres wide. Braynor Financial is putting in 108 homes in the area that was allowed for development as part of an agreement with land owners that resulted in lower Jackson Farm on 102nd Avenue being preserved as a park. The developer wants to raise the height of the homes to improve appearances. The height relaxation is consistent with what is allowed in the surrounding Albion area. The request for narrower roads are in areas where there are homes on only one side of the street. The narrower roads are similar to those in the Silver Valley area, says a report.

Local students benefit from SFU program by Rob er t M a n g e ls d or f staff reporter
A new program offered by SFU’s Faculty of Science offers local high school students the opportunity to earn high school credits while attending free seminars at the prestigious Burnaby university. The free University Science Transition Experience Program (USTEP), was developed by Associate Dean for the Faculty of Science George Agnes, in partnership with Lower Mainland
school districts, including School District No. 42. Agnes said the aim of USTEP is to provide high school students with the opportunity to challenge themselves academically beyond what is offered at the high school level, while introducing them to university life at the same time. “We want to expose high school students to a series of snapshots on how they can develop their own postsecondary education plan, and stimulate their imaginations by relating innovations in science and technology
to everyday events in students’ daily activities,” Agnes said. The theme for this school year is energy and its many forms. Students will select a topic based on the subject material discussed at the sessions and use that topic to propose and conduct a monthlong project, guided and evaluated by their high school teachers. “I don’t tell the student what they have to study,” said Agnes. “Students have to first develop a project, and then work with their high school teacher on the project.”
Big bank moves out off 224th staff reporter
A major corner of downtown Maple Ridge is now empty after HSBC has moved west. HSBC moved Oct. 1 from its location on 224th Street and McIntosh Avenue to its new headquarters in a renovated building on 203rd Street. “We’ve been in Maple
Ridge for a long time and we’re committed to staying there,” said Aurora Bonin, senior manager for public affairs for HSBC. “We’re excited to stay in Maple Ridge. It’s an important place for us.” Bonin said the layout of the new building will serve customers better and provide more parking and accessibility for
the physically challenged. Some customers like the move to the new location, and some don’t, she added. She added the bank has been in the district for 25 years. The move is the latest in the block just south of Dewdney Trunk Road, which has frequent changes in businesses and tenants.
By allowing students to follow their own passions, Agnes hopes to stimulate their creativity. Students and their parents from across
the Lower Mainland, including Maple Ridge, took part in the first monthly seminar last week, which featured a presentation from a researcher working with
data from the Large Hadron Collider. Agnes said he hopes to see university credit offered to students taking part in the program in the future. “Currently there is no advance standing offered, but that’s not out of the question for the future,” he said.
Seminar The next USTEP seminar takes place Tuesday, Nov. 6, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Applied Science Building, Room 10900. For more information, or to register, visit www.sfu.ca/science/ sciadean.

C0-OP WEEK SALE
Riding the Galloping Goose, Lochside
t’s not often that I bike purely for the enjoyment of it, but last week I went on a longawaited and short cycling trip on Vancouver Island with my husband. I had heard much about the famous Galloping Goose Trail between Victoria and Sooke, and its somewhat less famous cousin, the Lochside Trail between Schwartz Bay and Victoria. Both trails are decommissioned railway tracks. It was a brilliant idea to turn these tracks into trails, used not only by cyclists, but also by pedestrians and horses. Closer to Victoria, these trails are well used, at times to the point of becoming somewhat congested, and the trails also draw cycle touring enthusiasts from around the world. We could only stay for two nights and - being of the slower, non-Lycra, sit-up type cyclists – couldn’t possibly do everything we wanted to do, which was to cycle both the Goose and the Lochside, as well as explore Victoria. My last trip to Vancouver Island was about 24 years ago, and I may have to wait for another quarter century before I get to go again. So we decided to do a bit of everything. The traffic, even in early October, was much busier than I expected, and I realized that outside of its compact downtown, Victoria is actually quite a sprawling city. After arriving in our hotel in Victoria, we tried biking around
downtown a bit, but the traffic was a too busy and we realized it was better to explore the beautiful, lively downtown on foot, if you don’t know Cycling your way Jackie Chow around and need to stop frequently to look at the map. Since we still had a few hours of daylight left, we did a little more cycling, heading down Dallas Road, which runs all along the shoreline from downtown Victoria going east. It was all on-road cycling, but the traffic was fine and the views across the Juan de Fuca Strait were stunning. This coastal scenic bike route continues to Saanich, but we only biked up to Oak Bay Marina, where we sat on a bench in the park for a while to refuel and soak up some more sun before we headed back. On the way back we stopped at the Fisherman’s Wharf and admired the lovely floating homes, many with interesting, colourful and artistic decorations. The next day we decided to try the Galloping Goose towards Sooke. After some very confusing and poorly signed detours for cyclists due to construction, we

found the trail and were on our way on a beautiful wide and wellused car-free trail, heading north for several kilometers to where the trail forks, with the 55-kilometre-long Galloping Goose to the west, and the 30 km Lochside Trail to the north. We followed the Goose for about half an hour or so. It was off-road, and well away from the highway. But we realized, looking at the map, that we would be cycling along the highway for a while longer, so we went back and got on to the Lochside Trail instead. We followed this pleasant, quiet trail through forests, across bridges and past lakes for about an hour or so and reluctantly turned back. The rest of this easy, family friendly bike trail will have to be explored next time. We drove to our hotel in Sooke, which overlooked Sooke Harbour. It’s surprising that Sooke is not exactly catering to cyclists, with such a famous cycling trail drawing many cycling tourists to this area. Our hotel did not have bike parking. Since it was pretty quiet, they allowed us to park our bikes in the bar beside the lobby. The roads in Sooke didn’t seem bike friendly and I don’t remember seeing any bikes. The next morning we drove up to the Sooke Pot Holes – a popular swimming destination in summer - and started biking the Goose from there.

Great way to invest taxes Cycling from p21
We biked about 15 km down the trail towards Victoria. I was surprised and pleased that the trail was mostly flat, and even though it was unpaved, it was well packed and smooth. Much of the trail passes through forests, and some sections of the trail along the coast line, high up on a cliff, offer beautiful vistas of the Sooke Basin. Even though the town of Sooke does not seem too interested in attracting cycle tourists, there are some nice bed and breakfasts along the Galloping Goose that do, which makes it easy to break up the trip in shorter sections. High quality trails like the Galloping Goose and the Lochside are great assets for a community and for a region. Not only for daily enjoyment and practical use by local residents and to enable a healthy lifestyle, but also for cycle tourism.

Cycle tourism can bring huge revenues. Take as an example Quebec’s Route Verte, ranked first among Top 10 bike routes on the planet by the National Geographic travel guide, Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World’s Greatest Trips. Cyclists on Route Verte spent a total of $134 million in 2007 alone (of which over $38 million ended up in provincial coffers), which helps support 2,861 jobs. The total investment in this bike route network of more than 4,000 km throughout the province was $132 million. A quick calculation shows that payback time is 3.5 years, just from cyclists’ spending alone. Isn’t that a great way to invest tax payers’ dollars?

When stakes are higher with viruses
f compromised immune systems are common amongst the elderly, then what are the greatest threats to their health? It is the public spaces where plenty of viruses and bacteria abound and with a little thought. Perhaps the two most common places where large numbers of bacteria exist are the handles of shopping carts and the bank’s ATM machine. Sick or not, people go to grocery stores and shop and go to banks to get money to do so. These surfaces are used by a lot of people daily, and are rarely cleaned. It is a good idea for the elderly to carry a small container of antibacterial hand cleaner to put on their hands after using such devices. Groceries, themselves, are often handled by a lot of people, particularly open produce items. Consequently, these products may be carrying bacteria from human contact or from soil or other contaminants. Interestingly, one of the dirtiest places in our homes is our kitchen sink because we clean most food products there. It is important, after each use of the kitchen sink
for cleaning meat or vegetables, that an antibacterial cleaner be used and that sponges or washcloths be washed and dried under high heat conditions. Viruses tend As we age Graham Hookey to exist for a short period of time, in the air or on hard surfaces, in areas where people are coughing or sneezing. Doctors’ offices, hospital waiting rooms, grocery store lineups, elevators, buses – anywhere where people gather, particularly in tight spaces, offer an opportunity for an easy exchange of viruses. If local news outlets are indicating an increase in viral infections in an area, or during a certain season, it might be wise to avoid such places where possible, perhaps getting a relative to do some shopping and staying out of tight public spaces. Of course, sometimes viruses
Free Community Living BBQ
A free community barbecue will be taking place at the ACT on Oct. 18 in honor of Community Living Month. Every October various community agencies come together to host a celebration to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of peo-
come to the homes of the elderly. Visiting relatives and friends, particularly children, spend a good deal of time in public places and may be carrying viruses when they arrive. It’s not unrealistic to suggest that when there are inevitable waves of flus and colds traveling through a school, a daycare or business offices, that contact and cuddling with Grandma and Grandpa might be avoided until the wave has passed. The rules of reducing risk for viral and bacterial attacks are much the same at any age. Avoiding those who are sick, washing hands regularly and thoroughly (20 seconds), and keeping home and food surfaces clean are important routines in any home. But for the elderly, reducing the risk of viral attacks and bacterial infections, in combination with seriously considering an annual flu shot, is a serious part of daily planning. Quite simply, the stakes are higher with each year that is added to one’s life. Graham Hookey writes on education, parenting and eldercare (email@example.com).

Fix tunnel gridlock with tolls, not new bridge by Jeff Nag e l Black Press
called ‘peak car’ – where a trend towards people driving less than in the past may mean it’s time to reconsider how fast road capacity needs to expand. Other transportation observers in the region see the province’s promise of a new crossing as one that’s likely to devour funding that could otherwise go to needed transit upgrades. “I think there will be a revolt if they continue to neglect transit and continue to pour billions of dollars into highways like this tunnel,” said transportation consultant and freeway expansion opponent Eric Doherty. He noted bus/HOV lanes on Highway 99 are already in place to speed buses past congestion approaching the tunnel. “TransLink has buses that can be put on the road if we had the funding,” Doherty said. “Rather than something decades away, it could be weeks away.” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie has also urged increased transit as an immediate solution. Stephen Rees, the B.C. Green Party’s transportation critic, warned build-
ing a giant new bridge to replace the tunnel would be an exercise in futility, simply shifting congestion a few kilometres down the road into Richmond. “You’ve simply taken the lineup that now forms on the south end of the tunnel and you’ve put it on the south end of the Oak Street Bridge,” he said. Rees rejected the notion that talk of tolling the tunnel will force the region into a broad and fair system of road pricing, rather than ad hoc tolling of just some crossings. “Road pricing is going to be horribly unpopular,” he said. “I just don’t see that one getting off the ground, democratically.” He said it’s “very tricky” to come up with a fair system that affects every trip in the region and succeeds at controlling peak congestion. TransLink will work with the province on plans for a Massey Tunnel replacement with a view to maximizing transit, strategic planning vice-president Bob Paddon said.
‘Use bulging gas tax fund to aid cycling’ Black Press
More than $280 million in federal gas tax that is supposed to flow to TransLink is sitting unused and Metro Vancouver politicians now want some of it to go to building bike lanes. Since 2005, Ottawa has handed back to TransLink at least half of the 10 cents a litre of gas tax it collects within the Metro region and the money has helped finance hundreds of new and replacement buses and SkyTrain cars. But TransLink is only allowed to spend the resulting fund on certain types of projects – mainly vehicles – and with its capital spending constrained, the transferred federal gas tax money is stacking up faster than it’s being spent. An extra $122 million will flow in this year, lifting the total to more than $400 million. “We want to be able to spend that money reducing our carbon footprints with cycling infrastructure around the region,” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said. But the federal government two years ago removed bike-related projects as an allowed use of the gas tax transfers.
Metro’s regional planning committee voted last week to urge area
cities to lobby Ottawa to reinstate that use. “It’s more consistent
with the green agenda for the gas tax dollars,” Corrigan said.

Transportation expert Todd Litman has a radical proposal to quickly solve congestion at the Massey Tunnel – one that doesn’t involve waiting a decade for a new bridge or borrowing billions of dollars. He would slap tolls on the Highway 99 crossing immediately. Litman argues small tolls charged now and only during peak periods would decongest the corridor and allow a free flow of traffic through the tube. The money collected could fund better bus service on the corridor and connecting routes, he said, providing a more viable transit alternative for drivers who don’t need to use their own vehicles. “It’s the efficient, rational solution that could actually start providing benefits in a year,” Lit-
man said. Premier Christy Clark last month vowed the province will begin planning to build a new Deas crossing over the next 10 years. Litman, head of the Victoria Transportation Policy Institute, said charging low tolls now would at least ease gridlock and build acceptance of higher eventual tolls on the corridor ahead of a replacement. He said that’s smarter than building a new crossing first and gambling – as with the Golden Ears Bridge and new Port Mann Bridge – that drivers’ willingness to pay will cover the costs on schedule. “People complain about traffic congestion,” he said. “But if you ask if they’re willing to pay extra in taxes or tolls to finance it, a lot of the demand disappears.” At best, Litman said, it may turn out the demand-dampening effect of Highway 99 tolls along with better transit could avoid the need for the project altogether. He’s one of the observers who sees growing evidence for a concept

MAPLE RIDGE • PITT MEADOWS
Les couleurs du Quebec aren’t fading M
y family has been a part of this country since 1695, when Jacques Lascelle arrived in what was then Nouvelle France. He immigrated to Ville de Quebec, which is currently the oldest fortified city in North America (besides Mexico City). I recently spent some time there and I wanted Gardening Mike Lascelle to share a few thoughts and images about the gardens and landscape architecture of this beautiful place. It was quintessentially autumn during my visit, with the drive in bringing me past fiery forests of sugar maple (Acer saccharum) and sumac (Rhus typhina), but it is the old fortified gates that one passes through that really remind you that this city is like no other in Canada. I began my tour down in the Lower Town or Quartier Petit Champlain, where heritage houses and shops border narrow cobblestone lanes in what was once a portside village. There are no sidewalks here, so these businesses festoon their storefronts with hanging baskets and window boxes filled with Boston fern (Nephrolepsis), dragonwing begonias and variegated English ivy – all occupying little space. Sprawling scarlet vines of Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) could also be found clinging to the face of centuries-old brick buildings, looking like they too have been there for hundreds of years. The trip to Upper Town means stairs (lots of them), but even these are decorated with
Mike Lascelle photos
There are no sidewalks in Quebec City, so businesses there festoon their storefronts with hanging baskets and window boxes; the Fontaine de Tourny was a gift to Quebec City for its 400th anniversary. wrought iron arches studded with hanging baskets of greenery. In fact, the urban forest seems alive and well in the old city, with street trees and ancient architecture peacefully co-existing and even complimenting one another. The city plantings in Upper Town range from elaborate floral urns (many with historical themes) to simple yet elegant mass plantings of purple ‘redbor’ kale sitting in a sea of golden potato vine (Ipomoea). And even when one does stumble across a
modern shop, such as a florist I found, they still managed to convey that French love for the dramatic with several espalier angel trumpets (Brugmansia) framing the front entrance with their fragrant apricot-coloured blooms. The landscape architecture here is equally spectacular with the Fontaine de Tourny by the Quebec parliament buildings being one of the best examples. This fountain was a gift to Quebec City for its 400th anniversary and although it was only installed in 2007, it was
originally created for the 1855 Paris World’s Fair and given the context of the surrounding heritage buildings; it now looks completely at home. Which is why this city has been at the center of French culture in our country for these many centuries and as long as it stays true to its own history, I see no reason for les coleurs du Quebec to fade any time soon. Mike Lascelle is a local nursery manager and gardening author (firstname.lastname@example.org).

TESTIMONIAL “I have retained David as my realtor for my last two sales and could not be happier. David continuously kept in contact with me and provided his expertise. When an offer came in, David then provided me with great advice and concluded both deals. David is informative, conﬁdent, and goes beyond expectations, which was a signiﬁcant help in getting through the sale and being more than happy with the results at the end. I would highly recommend David Maitre for the sale of your home and will continue to retain David as my realtor in my future real estate endeavours.” Brenden C.

Midget Knights down Spartans Knights teams rack up wins over thanksgiving staff reporter
The Meadow Ridge Knights midget football team improved to 4-2 this season with a 21-6 win over the visiting Victoria Spartans on Monday. Brett Boyce got the Knights on the board in the first quarter with a touchdown with a run straight up the gut of the Spartans’ defence, while Paul Bock kicked the extra point. Jordan Schuster scored the Knights second touchdown of the day after a play by Marko Bevanda put the Knights on the oneyard-line in the third quarter. Bevanda had a touchdown of his
own in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach for Victoria. The midget Knights next face the last-place Richmond Raiders at home at Samuel Robertson Technical Secondary School at 5 p.m. on Oct. 13. The junior bantam squad travelled to Chilliwack to take on the Red Giants at Townsend Park, beating the home team by a score of 12-6 on Saturday, before returning home to SRT on Monday to fall 48-12 to the North Langley Bears. Brandon Hunt put the Knights on the board in the first quarter against Chilliwack, while Tim Janke flew through a hole opened by the offensive line in the second half for the team’s second touchdown of the day.
Dylan Lacey led the defence with tackles to stop the run up the middle. Adam Brass made a great tackle stopping the forward movement of Chilliwack. Hunt had two touchdowns in the junior bantams loss to North Langley, while Alex Rideout had a strong performance of defence. After a slow start to the season the peewee Blue Knights have won five in a row after a 26-0 shutout win over the Chilliwack Red Giants on Saturday, and a 32-0 win over the North Langley Bears on Monday. With the wins, the team improves to 5-2 this season. The peewee Gold Knights lost to the Abbotsford Falcons on Saturday 20-6, but rebounded on Monday with a 35-0 win over the Mission 9ers.
The atom Knights travelled to Chilliwack on Saturday, where they beat the Giants 26-6. The defensive line of Tristan Maschke and Jessie Chartrand hooked up with defensive ends Jacob Bell and Mitchell Alcinay to render the Giants offensive unit practically inoperable. Aiden Sanderson contributed his fair share of tackles, while Taigan Godin caught his first interception of the season. The Knights’ offence could do no wrong as the big men up front, Tyson Caughy and James Harder, opened running lanes for both Riley Rooney and Nico Zolliker as they each added two touchdowns. With the win, the atom Knights improve to 5-1 this season. firstname.lastname@example.org
Local Ride Bike Shop’s sixth annual Pumpkin Cross cyclocross race is coming to Maple Ridge on Sunday, Oct. 28, promising racers of all levels a fantastic day of biking and Halloween-themed antics, including costume contests. “Pumpkin Cross has earned a great reputation over the years. People love it because it’s not just a race, it’s an event,” said race organizer and Local Ride Bike Shop owner Barry Lyster. “The costume aspect has just exploded. Last year we even had Angus Young of AC/DC riding the race course while playing his guitar.” In addition to the festive atmosphere, Pumpkin Cross is famous for its great courses featuring challenging obstacles and spooky décor. Lyster strives to make Pumpkin Cross inclusive for everyone with a free kid’s race. He is also introducing a simplified category structure this year to give riders of the same abilities deeper and more competitive fields and create exciting and challenging racing for everyone. “We decided to change our category structure to give more options to women and youth riders and anyone interested in trying the sport,” said Lyster. “The changes will make the quality of racing higher for everyone.” Despite the popularity of Pumpkin Cross in the community, Lyster was nearly forced to cancel the event due to issues with securing the venue, which uses the North Alouette Greenway and home of the Maple Ridge EquiSports Centre, and has been used for the event for the previous two years. After some last-minute negotiations, however, Lyster received permission to run the race in the same location this year. • For more information about Pumpkin Cross, visit www.localride.ca

Lactate: The bad boy of metabolism? W
e’ve all experienced the searing, burning sensation in our muscles as we gasped to get enough oxygen into the lungs while sprinting or exercising at high intensity. The burning, heavy feeling in the muscles eventually forces you to grind to a halt, unable to produce even one more step. And days later you’re still stiff and it hurts even to walk downhill. Many people have heard that all these effects on the body are from lactic acid in the muscles. Is this true or is there any recent research to challenge these assumptions? The stiffness you feel after hard exercise can last a day to a week. This is called delayed onset muscle soreness. The myth that lactic acid is responsible for DOMS was dispelled long ago since lactic acid (or more properly termed ‘lactate’) was found to remain in the blood stream for only a few hours after exercise. The slow-twitch muscle fibres, liver and heart all metabolize lactate and effectively recycle it fairly quickly. It cannot cause the stiff and sore feeling even 24 hours later, let alone days later. The actual cause of this stiffness is now thought to be from the inflammatory-repair response, leading to swelling, stiffness and soreness in the muscles due to micro-trauma of intense exercise. Is lactate even responsible for the burning sensation in muscle?
