Downtown is the place for help More than 20 social service agencies in Maple Ridge core by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

The letter about the ongoing debate about Maple Ridge’s downtown came from the heart, from a long-time activist, council watcher and actual resident. It’s all very nice to tell people to be more compassionate towards the down-and-out, the homeless, drug addicted or mentally ill – but try coping with that 24/7 as a permanent resident, says Tyler Ducharme. “We’re supposed to keep our mouths shut and be compassionate,” he says in a recent letter. It seems as if one questions social programs that are foisted on the area, “they are now on the moral low ground and lack compassion for other people, Ducharme writes. He knows people need help, “But at what point do residents get to say that we need a break too?”

Ground broken for gaming centre Forms being built for footings along Lougheed by P h i l M e l nychuk staff reporter

Phil Melnychuk/THE NEWS

Mayor Ernie Daykin (left) and Great Canadian Gaming vice-president Howard Blank (right) mark formal beginning of work on new community gaming centre Friday.

There’s now an opening date for Maple Ridge’s new community gaming centre. The 28,000 sq. foot entertainment and gaming centre will be open a year from now on Lougheed Highway and 227th Street. A sod-turning marking the offi-

cial start of the building took place Friday, although forms for the footings are already in place, awaiting the pouring of concrete. “As an oldtimer in this community, this [lot] has been underutilized, to be kind, for the last 60 to 70 years,” Mayor Ernie Daykin said. After seeing the new gaming centre in Chilliwack, Daykin said he was looking forward to seeing the Maple Ridge version. “We’re going to have an outstanding, vibrant centre in Maple Ridge that I think you’ll be proud of,” said

Great Canadian Gaming vice-president Howard Blank. B.C. Lotto Corp. president Michael Graydon said Great Canadian has an “essence” of giving back to the community. “Responsible gaming is very critical to us at BCLC. “I think you’re going to find this one of the most profitable and efficient pieces of land,” in Maple Ridge for the next year 60 years, he added. The new gaming centre will include 100 electronic slot machines, which were added in the past few

years to a remodelled Haney Bingo Plex on 224th Street. Ten per cent of the revenue from those machines goes directly to the District of Maple Ridge, earning the district at least $300,000 yearly. Blank said the partnership between gaming and charities is envied around the world and helps charities, social services and government. While council approved rezoning for the gaming centre in 2008, it will be five years before the building is complete. See Gaming, p3

‘Downtown is going to get better’ Downtown from front

Workers from those agencies, (more than 20 in the downtown) get to go home at the end of the day while downtown residents have to put up with the problems at all hours, even when they’re just cooling down from a day’s work. Help for people, though, has to be accessible if it’s going to be successful, says Sue Wheeler, director of community services with the District of Maple Ridge. “If they were not accessible, they’re not going to be effective and you’re going to have a lot more people on the street.” And having helping agencies cooperate with the broader community for overall development of an area is seen as leading edge work, she added. One way to smooth the rough edges is via the Community Network. That’s an umbrella group of public and private agencies, everything from the food bank to the public library to the Maple Ridge Treatment Centre. Representatives of each group meet monthly to coordinate and to inform each other about what’s going on in their area of helping. While some say social service agencies are a magnet for the unfortunate, to the detriment of a healthy downtown, Wheeler says it’s the other way around. “The fact we have services is because we have needs.” She says the number of agencies isn’t increasing She’s been working in Maple Ridge since 1994 and said there was an “explosion of homelessness” in 1998-1999. “We had huge, huge needs and we didn’t have any support for people.” And that’s when the Salvation Army received funding to open its shelter. Wheeler pointed out that social service agencies keep more people

Downtown resident Yvonne Desabrais says people who live in the area still have to reach out. from ending up on the street. “As people cycle through homelessness, there’s a big part of the population that’s at risk and never becomes homelessness because of the help,” they get, she points out. “Social services are there to help people in times of crisis and need. If they’re not accessible, they’re not going to be effective and you’re going to have a lot more people on the street.” Another downtown resident, Yvonne Desabrais, says people who live in the downtown area still have to reach out. “I know it’s not easy living in this area. As a resident, it’s hard. You’re not safe. “But if we’re not humane to each other, it’s going to get worse.” Desabrais said there are two main

issues, people with mental health issues and safety. “Our prisons are filling up with mental health patients. They don’t belong there.” Desabrais also disagrees with what she calls the bullying of the Salvation Army’s Caring Place and the work it does at 222nd Street and Lougheed Highway. People who criticize should first go have a meal at the Caring Place to see who really uses the services. “There’s a lot of work being done towards solutions and that’s why we have so many resources around here. I really don’t feel the Caring Place has to go anywhere. This community looks out for its people.” Maple Ridge Coun. Bob Masse

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

disagrees there are too many helping agencies or that central Maple Ridge is becoming like the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver. “I don’t think that’s a problem.” Many of the agencies people would have no problem supporting, such as the hospice, he added. “I just think we need to manage things better.” And he supported the wholistic approach where mental health, addictions, police, outreach work together. Without such coordination, “you’re not going to have as good as outcome, that’s for sure.” Masse says Maple Ridge’s core may even be improving, although in August council requested a staff report on the downtown area after he said he’s seen a “significant”

‘New entrance’ Gaming from front

Blank said that’s the original construction schedule for the company after other projects were completed. The entertainment-gaming centre will have a variety of slot machines, 200 bingo seats, a restaurant with an outdoor patio, dynamic flex space, water features, a green roof and 220 parking stalls. The project also includes connecting 227th Street to Lougheed Highway, providing another entrance to the downtown. “We look forward to the grand opening celebration in late 2013,” Daykin said in a release. downturn in the area, with seemingly more new street people. Masse, whose chiropractic business is in the downtown, also said then that both RCMP and Westridge Security told him they were seeing more people on the street. “I’m saying that there’s an increase in anti-social behaviour in the community, that is, prostitution and the whole drug-addiction scene and the consequences that go with it. It’s certainly much more visible,” Masse said in August. Several local businesses subsequently said the same. But two local businesses recently told Masse that there aren’t nearly the problems compared to a few years ago. “More and more people are moving downtown and that’s going to continue,” he said Tuesday. “The downtown is going to get better. We have to manage that growth. “We have problems, I’m not going to say we don’t have problems.” But council is aware and working on the issue, he added. Every city faces the same issues, he added. “We really need the provincial and federal governments to step up and help us out with the mental health issues.”

Taxes continue to pay for work on district roads, sewers Up next, acquire right of way for bike path by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

While taxes jump five per cent every year, the District of Maple Ridge is putting the money to use doing what municipalities do – building roads and sewers. Motorists have probably noticed the improvements in the last few years, but planning for the future nev-

er stops, according to a recent update from the public works department. Next year, the district gets more into the real estate business as it tries to acquire a right of way to widen 128th Avenue between 210th and 224th Streets. The same right of way will be used to accommodate a new bicycle path and water main. Once the property is acquired, the district then can widen 128th Avenue to four lanes. But that’s just the latest project that follows sev-

eral that have been recently scratched off the district’s todo list. In the past few years, the district has tackled a major headache for eastbound commuters, first by smoothing out the dogleg of Abernethy Way at 224th Street, then installing lights and signals. Improvements have also been made to Abernethy Way intersections at 227th, 228th and 230th streets, while a new bike and pedestrian path is in place between 224th and 232nd streets.

Just completed this fall was a major rebuild of 122nd Avenue from 216th to 221st streets, including pathways. The new road and sidewalks will make it easier for both autos and pedestrians to get to and from Maple Ridge secondary. A few other projects completed in the past few years are the new roundabout at Fern Crescent on 232nd Street, widening of 232nd Street in the same area, and rebuilding Shady Lane (124th Avenue) between Laity and 216th streets.

Less exciting, but just as needed, has been work done on Maple Ridge’s water and sewage systems. The water main on Dewdney Trunk Road between Laity Street and 216th Avenue was replaced with a larger capacity main, while the same thing has been done on 126th Avenue between 216th and Blackstock streets. Work continues to replace and renew the sanitary sewer system in order to keep stormwater flows from infiltrating into the sanitary sew-

ers and causing overflows, while the sewage pump station on Wharf Street in Hammond has also been improved to enhance flood protection. In order to keep on top of things, several master plans are in place. The 2003 transportation master plan is being updated, just as the master water plan was in the last two years. A sanitary plan is under development and an integrated stormwater plan is underway for Silver Valley, at the north end of 232nd Street.

Maple Ridge Coun. Cheryl Ashlie doesn’t want Maple Ridge downtown to become a victim of its own success. So she is proposing that staff find a way to keep downtown lots from being gobbled up by speculators, from near and far, who just want to sit on empty lots, rather than build and improve. Ashlie said Maple Ridge’s No. 5 ranking in 2010 by the Real Estate Investment Network could attract investors who are looking to build long-term real estate portfolios. That could be fine for security but doesn’t really mesh with plans for the district to build its downtown. “My concern is around those who are simply looking for a global investment portfolio,” Ashlie said last week. If there is a way of setting policies that encourage property owners to develop their properties rather than sit on them, Ashlie wants to get the policies in place before real estate interest really heats up and land gets tied up. “I really want there to be clear signals. I just feel that’s important so we get it on the record.” On Tuesday, council was set to debate Ashlie’s motion asking staff to find ways to “encourage timely and appropriate development,” in the downtown and Albion flats. “Our downtown is not a huge area. We feel the empty lot syndrome much greater than another downtown core,” Ashlie said. Maple Ridge could be “significantly impacted for years to come,” if such

properties are held and not developed, the motion reads. However, just what measures a municipality can take to discourage that isn’t known. The district’s successful downtown investment incentive plan, which has resulted in millions of dollars in new projects, does the opposite, by encouraging development through tax breaks and permit discounts. However, staff have to find a way of discouraging owners from sitting on properties. Ashlie also wants to ensure the two main corridors into the downtown, Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road, are preserved for high-density development.

“We feel the empty lot syndrome much greater than another downtown core.” Coun. Cheryl Ashlie

The district’s transportation plan is currently under review, but last year a motion was passed that the two be identified as transportation corridors. The long-term plan is also to extend rapid transit into the downtown along Lougheed Highway, once light rail transit crosses the Pitt River Bridge. A state-of-the-art bikeway and pedestrian pathway is also ready to be built on the north side of Lougheed Highway, between 222nd and Laity streets, once money is available. Ashlie pointed out she’s not advocating the municipality buy properties, but it should identify companies who want to actively develop properties.

Wanted man arrested A man who triggered the lockdown of an elementary school in Maple Ridge was arrested Thursday after a week on the lam. Ridge Meadows RCMP found Clayton Quigley in a house on Dewdney Trunk Road. He was taken into custody around 9 p.m. Police have been searching for Quigley since Nov. 1 after he was seen trying to break into a business on River Road. Quigley alleged assaulted a police officer while trying to flee. His actions trigged the lockdown of Albion elementary on 240th Street as police fanned out across the neighbourhood to search for him. “After the events on Nov. 1, Mr. Quigley became a priority for our detachment,” said Supt. Dave Walsh. “This arrest was made with minimal danger to police and public in the area.” RCMP have forwarded their report to Crown Counsel with a recommendation that Quigley be charged with assaulting peace officer. Walsh thanked residents, police officers and civilian employees of the RCMP who assisted investigators with the file. Quigley was held in police custody overnight for a court appearance on Friday.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Treat with respect On Sunday, many of us gathered around cenotaphs and in city squares for solemn ceremonies paying tribute to Canada’s service men and women. We heard words like sacrifice and honour, some of them uttered by politicians. But for some veterans, those words continue to ring hollow. In 2006, Parliament unanimously passed the New Veterans Charter that changed the way injured soldiers are compensated. Instead of a lifetime pension, indexed to inflation, veterans injured after that year, or who had their injury diagnosed since then, would get a lump sump settlement. Veterans Affairs champions the new system as “a more complete approach to helping our men and women injured in the line of duty,” offering them “real hope.” But some injured veterans say otherwise. They say Canadian soldiers injured in Afghanistan, and those suffering the lingering mental and emotional effects of their tour are getting substantially less support than they would have received with the former indexed pension. A study by Queen’s University last year concluded most disabled soldiers will receive only two-thirds the compensation under the New Veterans Charter than they would have received from the old act. Recently, Canada’s Auditor-General criticized the Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs for their shoddy treatment of injured veterans, saying the system to get them help is “complex, lengthy and challenging to navigate.” Even in death, the indignities continue. A program that is supposed to contribute just over $3,600 to the funeral costs for destitute ex-soldiers has rejected more than two-thirds of funding requests since 2006. Even when approved, that money is still less than some social services departments will pay towards the burial of the homeless. It’s one thing for Canada’s politicians to honour our veterans. It’s another to treat them with honour. – Black Press

Views If your informaTom Fletcher tion on this hugely complex subject consisted of skimming a few news stories or watching protesters on TV, you will likely conclude what urban people have been indoctrinated with for years. The whole issue is salmon farms and whether they are bad or catastrophic. “Freeze new salmon farms on sockeye migration route: Cohen” said the headline on a Black Press report. Those who read past the headline would learn that Justice Bruce Cohen recommended a freeze on further salmon farms around the Discovery Islands group near Campbell River until 2020. It’s up to the industry to show by that time that the risk is “minimal,” or farms there should be shut down. A B.C. Salmon Farming Association spokesman said only nine of 70 B.C. salmon farms are in that area. There are no current applications for more. Let’s say you decide to plunge in, and download the full report from www. cohencommission.ca. If you go to Volume 2, page 102, you will see a series of graphs that show sockeye runs from

rivers other than the Fraser, from Washington all the way up to Alaska. It’s not a pretty sight. From Washington up to the Central Coast, the Skeena, Nass and up to Yukon’s Klukshu and Alaska’s Alsek, most runs show a decline starting in the 1980s or early 1990s. This includes runs that migrate down the west side of Vancouver Island, away from salmon farms. Alaska doesn’t allow farms, preferring “ranching” – a strategy that floods the ocean habitat with millions of hatchery fish. These are commercially fished and marketed as “wild.” B.C.’s North Coast has never had salmon farms. The area has been subject to a moratorium since an NDP-controlled legislative committee gave its verdict on the problem in 2008.  The popular villain in those days was sea lice. Skeena MLA Robin Austin chaired the committee that called for an end to open-pen salmon farms in five years. Then-agriculture minister Pat Bell approved one NDP recommendation, a moratorium on salmon farms in North Coast waters. This was after the Pacific Salmon Forum conducted its own four-year study, led by former fisheries minister John Fraser. Similar to Cohen, Fraser concluded that there is no simple answer to this complex problem. And they agreed that salmon farms don’t explain it. Cohen’s report makes it clear that the problem is far larger than could possibly be explained by salmon farms. How about logging impact? Cohen concludes after much testimony that stream protection has improved signifi-

cantly during the time of observed sockeye decline. Impact from extra runoff due to pine beetle infestation couldn’t be evaluated. Poaching on the Fraser? Cohen didn’t get around to that. His biggest concern was climate change, warming sensitive river waters and affecting ocean conditions. During the Cohen commission hearings, the 2010 Fraser sockeye run came in gangbusters, with 35 million fish. One leading theory is that ash from an Alaska volcano fertilized the ocean, producing algae that supported more salmon feed.

“The whole issue is salmon farms and whether they are bad or catastrophic.” Could it be that salmon ranching from Alaska, Japan and elsewhere is simply depleting the food supply? That too is inconclusive. Finally, Tides Canada, a U.S. front group that diverts attention from U.S. salmon and oil tankers, spent $25,000 to publicize Cohen evidence. But only as it relates to B.C. salmon farms, and how bad they are.

The News/letters Let’s put it to a vote Editor, The News: Re: We care, but where’s the accountability of Caring Place (Letters, Oct. 26). I am so sick of reading articles defending the Caring Place by using tactics against people who are opposed to it. Tactics such as that we are whiners, not morally up to religious standards, heartless, ignorant. I say there should be a vote by all the residents of Maple Ridge. The point I was making is being entirely missed, so if you want to talk ignorance, well that is being ignorant. I care about the residents of Maple Ridge and the state of the downtown core. I care about the people that need help. I am opposed to helping people and hurting others in the process – simple. I can see that this argument will be lost by the wayside in no time at all. Nothing will be done and everything will stay the same. How long has it been since downtown was a vibrant community filled with successful businesses and little crime? How long have the futile attempts at cleaning up the downtown core been happening? Mark my words, the crime and disgusting behaviors will still exist and be even worse in five or 10 years. Too bad everyone can’t see the big picture. Keep blaming all us morally wrong people for wanting a vibrant city to live in. Diana Nelson Maple Ridge

‘Pipelines key to our economy’ Editor, The News: Re: ‘Stop Kinder pipeline project’ (The News, Nov. 9). We would like the opportunity to respond to reporter Phil Melnychuk’s article based on the facts. The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association represents Canada’s transmission pipeline companies who operate approximately 110,000 kilometres of pipeline in Canada. In 2011, these energy highways moved approximately 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas each year. Our members transport 97 per cent of Canada’s daily natural gas and onshore crude oil from producing regions to markets throughout North America. In Mr. Melnychuk’s article, he quotes a Maple Ridge lawyer, who is seeking the NDP nomination for Maple RidgeMission, as saying any economic benefit is “vastly outweighed by the potentially disastrous environmental damage that may be caused by the pipelines.” Considering the large volume of product that is being transported every day by pipeline, the industry’s record is extremely good. Our member companies deliver 99.9985 per cent of its volume safely every day. However, any incident that occurs is not acceptable, and our member companies are working hard to improve their safety records. Emergency response plans, that are tailored to the unique characteristics of the product being transported, are available and ready to be activated as soon as the pipeline operator is aware of the incident.

Secondly, Mr. Melynychuk’s article states, “If we stop these pipelines, we will be sending a clear message to the world that it is time to move towards clean, renewable energy sources.” Despite the fact that Canadians could probably do more to become less dependent on fossil fuels, the reality is that will not happen overnight.

“Despite the fact that Canadians could probably do more to become less dependent on fossil fuels, the reality is that will not happen overnight. In the meantime, Canada needs pipelines in order to meet growing economic demand. The pipeline industry is a significant contributor to the Canadian economy which helps benefit all Canadians. The current lack of pipeline market access costs the Canadian economy approximately $40 million a day. This equates to a loss of export revenues totaling approximately $14 billion annually in trade. This revenue could be used to fund a variety of government programs that support Canadian families and businesses. Thirdly, Mr. Melnychuk also quoted Sven Biggs from Tanker Free B.C., who said that diluted bitumen “causes more pipeline breaks than conventional oil.” This is also not true.

A recent study by Alberta Innovates Technology Future (AITF) disputed these claims. In fact, the study found that diluted bitumen has properties very similar to those of conventional crude oil. Furthermore, the AITF study concluded that there is no more risk of corrosion in pipelines carrying diluted bitumen than that found in pipelines transporting conventional crude oil. And lastly, transporting diluted bitumen is not a new phenomenon. Our member companies that transport diluted bitumen do so on a daily basis and have been transporting the product for more than 30 years. The pipeline operators would never jeopardize their safety record and reputation, if they didn’t think that transporting diluted bitumen was safe. Philippe Reicher vice-president, external relations Canadian Energy Pipeline Association

We need pipeline Editor, The News: Re: ‘Stop Kinder pipeline project’ (The News, Nov. 9). When push comes to shove, Prime Minister Stephen Harper will remind us that he has a majority and he was elected on the economy. Selling gas is good for the economy. We need a pipeline to sell the gas. So there. Period. That’s it. Besides, he’d have to return the pandas if he didn’t get the gas to China. Michel Gendron Maple Ridge

Pitt garbage rate drops by 25 per cent Residents embrace curbside pickup by Monisha M ar t ins staff reporter

Pitt Meadows is heeding the city’s call to reduce, reuse, recycle with new figures showing a 25 per cent decrease in garbage following the start of a curbside green waste program. Between January and May, the amount of garbage generated by the city had a monthly average of 165 tonnes, then dropped to an average of 128.7 tonnes a month since the start of the curb side program in June. It’s exactly what the city wanted to happen. Still, staff did not expect to see such a drop in stuff headed for the landfill. The volume of green waste collected at the curb so far is approximately 5.5 times more than the volume of garbage diverted.

“We didn’t think it would be five-and-a-half times the garbage volume,” said the city’s director of operations Kim Grout. “It’s a bit more than we anticipated.” With 40 per cent or more of the waste stream consisting of organics, less trash will be dumped into landfills and the region’s incinerator as more people embrace the program. Right now, the city believes 70 per cent of single-family homes are participating. The city would like to achieve a 30 per cent diversion rate, at the very least. The city aims to bring composting to multifamily homes, as well, and must have that program in place by 2015. That’s the same year Metro committed to reach its ambitious target of recycling or composting 70 per cent of the waste stream from all sectors, including businesses, to rein in how much garbage is landfilled or burned. Grout said her staff is preparing a report for council to review during budget discussion that will see the program roll-

out for townhouses next year. In order to help offset the cost of collecting organics at the curb, staff will also be recommending the city consider no longer subsidizing the drop-off of yard waste at Meadows Landscape and apply the $63,600 savings to the curbside collection program.

Business Watch Businesses in Pitt Meadows can now play a part in keeping criminals at bay and streets safe. This fall, Consts. Krista Doncaster and Mathew Condon will be visiting stores and officers to introduce and encourage businesses to register for the Business Watch program. Once a business completes a registration form, it will get a decal that should be displayed on the business’ front door. The Business Watch program addresses the needs of the business community by providing a direct opportunity for the RCMP and local businesses to work together to reduce crime and increase safety through prevention,

sharing information and education. “We all want Pitt Meadows to remain a safe community. The Business Watch program is a step in the right direction,” said Mayor Deb Walters. Some of the benefits of the Business Watch program include the distribution of crime prevention material and tools, individual business problem solving, an electronic newsletter for the business community detailing recent crime and issues affecting business. Free training available to owners and employees on safety, security, and business-related crime and a free security assessment is also available on request. The RCMP will soon have the ability to distribute crime alerts to businesses registered with the program. RCMP are encouraging all business to take an active part in the program by watching for and reporting crime or suspicious behaviour. “We cannot keep the community safe on our own. Community safety is a shared responsibility,” said RCMP Supt. Dave Walsh.

Volunteer Opportunity PITT MEADOWS CITIZEN AT LARGE The Commission has the responsibility for the direct delivery of parks and leisure services to residents and, for entering into agreements and contractual obligations within approved budgets to deliver services through various groups, agencies and businesses. The list of services offered by the Commission includes everything from the planning, maintenance and scheduling of Parks and Public Recreation, Cultural and Heritage Facilities to offering programs and drop in activities in numerous locations to all age groups. Providing support to the many community organizations who deliver recreation services to area residents is another critical aspect of the Commission’s work. The Commission is made up of nine elected officials and six Citizen-at-Large. The Commission requires one resident (Citizen at Large) from Pitt Meadows to work with the committee for a term to run from January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2015.

ALL PERSONS who deem themselves affected by any of these bylaws shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard at the Public Hearing before Council on the matters contained in the bylaws or by making a written submission to the attention of the Manager of Legislative Services or by sending an e-mail to the Clerk’s Department at clerks@mapleridge.ca, by 4:00 p.m., November 20, 2012. All written submissions and e-mails will become part of the public record.

Liliya Galitskaya sketched 22 illustration for her book Destinies in Motion. The book is on sale at Meadows Cleaners in Valley Fair Mall in Maple Ridge.

If another big one hits, people on risky shorelines should learn sooner if a tsunami is on the way, Emergency Management B.C. said Monday. Now, upon hearing of a possible tsunami from the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Centre, EMBC immediately will fire off e-mails to all local authorities, fire, police, ambulance and the media. And just for good measure, if that’s not enough, EMBC then will Tweet the warning and add to its @EmergencyInfoBC. The government made the changes after the Oct. 27 quake in Haida Gwaii in which some parts of the shoreline learned of tsunami danger an hour after the earthquake. The change in procedure though won’t affect Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows much. The risk for a tidal wave in Maple Ridge is low, said emergency program manager Ceri Marlo. And in any event, cities and towns around B.C. are always first to respond to natural disasters. “We’re ready to locally respond as soon as it’s required,” Marlo said. “They’re [provincial government] there to support us, rather than the

other way around.” If a flood, or forest fire or quake hit Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows either or both municipalities would set up an emergency operations centre, from which a response would be coordinated. Provincial resources then would be allocated only if needed. Another reason for the change in procedure is because the U.S. National Weather Service will no longer issue e-mail tsunami notifications to the public.

Letters of interest should be submitted by November 16 and include an indication of why the candidate wishes to serve along with their professional and community involvement background. Additional background information in the form of a volunteer job description and an on-line application form is also available on the web at: http://www.mapleridge.ca/EN/main/municipal/728/parks. html.

A side view of the new museum and archives planned in 2005. records, the handwritten documents, the photographs and other unique documents would be a catastrophe for researchers, local historians, family historians, and the entire community. Aside from being objects of historical value, the records are unique and irreplaceable and a gold mine where researchers find treasures: pieces for that still unfinished puzzle that is historic Maple Ridge and the residents of yesterday. These are the records where the many family historians among us find traces of their ancestry. This is where the museum staff searches for answers to enquiries from the public at large, newspapers, and the

District of Maple Ridge. It is a major way in which the museum clearly provides an essential service and matches a community need. Is the 2005 dream still relevant? Yes, because we still want a better display of the museum collection. The 2005 plan is, however, not feasible at this time, or in the foreseeable future, because of the cost involved in the project. Rather than a $6 million, 12,000 sq. ft. facility, the historical society may want to aim for a 5,000 sq. ft. building to accommodate the community archives, management office space and enough room for staff to do research.

In addition to the community archive records, the building would also house all non-archival documents, newspapers, cutting files. That would make for an efficient information centre for the community and it would free up some small extra space for displays in the present building. This reduced expansion for which an estimate has still to be made, but for which the cost would be a fraction of the original plan, has as least a chance, with or without a champion, to find community support, and to see a new building constructed within a few years. Fred Braches is a local historian who lives in Whonnock.

n Sept. 25, members and friends of the Maple Ridge Historical Society gathered to revisit and revive the 2005 dreams of a new museum building, a dream that died in 2006. They were guided in their quest by two wise men with some combined 90 years of experience in building and renovating museums. To get our new museum building, the wise men said the historical society would have to find a champion, someone young and energetic and capable of kicking up a storm of enthusiasm and vast financial contributions for the new museum among the now indifferent residents of Maple Ridge – both individual and corporate. “If the museum/ archives were to disappear, who would care?” was one of the questions asked in this context. Most of our fellow citizens would say like the Scots: “damned few, and they’re all dead.” As most museums of its kind, our community museum has collections of strange, wonderful, and interesting objects from the past, as well as archives of printed materials and unique unpublished papers and photographs. Today’s museum space does not allow physical differentiation between museum collections from the archives. The 2005 building plan allotted separate spaces for the two groups with an emphasis on display for the museum collections and long-term preservation for the archival material. Due to lack of space, only a small portion of the museum’s collection can be displayed at any time. Many objects are stored elsewhere in makeshift facilities. The objects shown in the museum may not be unique, but, with only a few exceptions, the origins and the stories of every piece are known. For visitors, these objects bring the past to life in many ways different from the written word or just a picture. The objects are also a source of wonder for younger people, who can hardly imagine a world without electronics. For the many friends of the museum, the loss of the museum collections would be unimaginable. The loss of archival

Prevent falls this winter

Aging Gracefully Speaker Series

You and Your Aging Parents Memory Loss and Dementia Alzheimer’s disease is the second most-feared disease among Canadian baby boomers. This session will discuss the relationship between dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, some possible early signs of dementia and what to do if you are concerned about memory loss. In addition, researchers have identified some possible lifestyle changes that can improve overall aging and may reduce the risk for dementia. Participants will be encouraged to actively engage in protecting and maintaining their brain and will come away with some strategies and goals for improving the health of their mind, body and spirit. Thursday, November 15, 6:30-8:30 pm Maple Ridge Public Library, member of Fraser Valley Regional Library 130–22470 Dewdney Trunk Road Free event. Refreshments provided. Please register at 604–786–7404 or e-mail: htreleaven@shaw.ca Lori Kelly is a Support and Education Coordinator at the Alzheimer Society’s North Fraser (Burnaby) Resource Centre. She has over twenty years experience in the non-profit health sector, including over nine years with the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Lori is passionately committed to supporting people on the Alzheimer’s journey. Presented by:

Falls are the most common cause of injury for B.C. seniors, despite evidence that shows most are preventable. One in three British Columbians over the age of 65 will experience at least one fall every year. Injury from a fall often results in chronic pain, disability, reduced quality of life and is the main reason why older adults lose their independence. Nearly 40 per cent of all fall-related hospitalizations involve a hip fracture – which greatly impacts the health and well-being of seniors, as well as the B.C. health care system. The government of B.C. is working to help educate British Columbians on fall prevention in order to keep seniors safe, active and independent. There are many resources available to help older adults stay fall and injury free, including videos, brochures, booklets and guides. The new edition of the B.C. Seniors’ Guide also provides tips on healthy aging and fall

Tips to avoid falls • Do exercises to increase muscle strength and improve balance. • Reduce medications known to increase fall risk. • Correct vision problems. • Ensure adequate levels of vitamin D and calcium through healthy diets and supplements. • Consider home and outdoor modifications to reduce tripping and slipping. prevention. “Although the risk factors increase with age, falls are not an inevitable part of aging,” according to Ralph Sultan, minister of state for seniors. “Knowing how to prevent falls will help keep seniors active, healthy and happy in their homes and communities.” Seniors with fall-related injuries tend to stay in hospital twice as long as seniors hospitalized for all other reasons. Injuries from falls cost the B.C. government more than

$195 million annually in direct health costs. In addition to providing resources, the B.C. government supports the prevention of falls by working with health authorities, health care professionals, injury prevention experts and the public in developing fall-prevention projects and programs. The Strategies and Actions for Independent Living Falls Prevention Project is a training program for communityhealth workers and homehealth professionals that addresses falls and related risk factors among clients of publicly funded home support services. Health authorities are currently implementing SAIL and are expanding its scope across their regions. The Framework and Toolkit for Fall Related Injury Prevention in Residential Care provides resources for healthcare professionals to support planning, implementation, distribution and evaluation of fall-prevention programs in residential care.

B.C. communities to be recognized for being ‘age-friendly’ Local governments can now apply to have their efforts in creating supportive environments for their community’s seniors recognized. The Age-Friendly British Columbia community recognition program is offered in partnership with B.C. Healthy Communities and rewards a commitment to local initiatives, which allow seniors to enjoy good health and active participation in their community. To be eligible, communities must complete four steps. First, they must establish an age-friendly advisory or steering committee, which includes the active participation of older adults. Secondly, they must pass a local council or district board resolution to actively support, promote and work toward becoming an age-friendly community. They must also conduct an age-friendly assessment in consultation with older adults, and develop and publish an action plan. Successful communities will receive a poster celebrating their efforts and $1,000 to help provide an age-friendly legacy project or celebration. Communities will also be required to implement an age-friendly action plan and monitor age-friendly progress by measuring and reviewing activities, and reporting publicly on action

plan outcomes. “This important program recognizes the efforts that communities right across this province that are making life easier for older residents,” said Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan. “As a senior, I am well aware of the difference age-friendly initiatives can make. Simple things like barrier-free buildings and mobility-friendly streets and sidewalks, improved access to local business, parks and parking can make communities more accessible for seniors and their families.” Nine communities were presented with agefriendly recognition awards in September, including Duncan, Esquimalt, Metchosin, Revelstoke, Saanich, Sechelt, Surrey, West Vancouver, and White Rock. More than 100 B.C. communities have been supported in their efforts to create age-friendly initiatives to date, ranging from setting public policy to making physical improvements to address the needs of older residents. Applications for age-friendly recognition will be accepted through Jan. 4. Successful applicants will be notified in the spring of 2013. • For more information on how your community can apply for age-friendly recognition, visit www.gov.bc.ca/agefriendly

A: When a parent ends up in hospital, the most important thing you can do is be an advocate for them. Ask questions and monitor your mom’s progress. When discharged, get clear instructions from the hospital for any prescriptions or aftercare needed, and find out when she should visit her family doctor for a follow up. Make sure that visit happens! Once she’s home, check on her early and often. For people with Congestive Heart Failure, a controlled clinical study showed that a single, home-based visit from a Registered Nurse and Pharmacist one week after discharge from a hospital stay, significantly reduced unplanned hospital readmissions, length of hospital stays, and even deaths. This is because these professionals checked for the following 1 week after the person came home: • Any worsening or new symptoms, and any adverse medication effects • The person’s knowledge about their medicines (and if they were taking them properly!) • Whether a medication reminder or blister packed medicine was needed • Whether increased monitoring by family or a hired caregiver was recommended Early intervention made all the difference, and we find this is true in many cases. We have many clients who have recovered faster after a hospital stay, because our caregivers and nurses monitor closely and catch issues early–before they can become more serious.

Volunteer Opportunity PITT MEADOWS CITIZEN AT LARGE The Commission has the responsibility for the direct delivery of parks and leisure services to residents and, for entering into agreements and contractual obligations within approved budgets to deliver services through various groups, agencies and businesses. The list of services offered by the Commission includes everything from the planning, maintenance and scheduling of Parks and Public Recreation, Cultural and Heritage Facilities to offering programs and drop in activities in numerous locations to all age groups. Providing support to the many community organizations who deliver recreation services to area residents is another critical aspect of the Commission’s work. The Commission is made up of nine elected officials and six Citizen-at-Large. The Commission requires one resident (Citizen at Large) from Pitt Meadows to work with the committee for a term to run from January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2015.

ALL PERSONS who deem themselves affected by any of these bylaws shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard at the Public Hearing before Council on the matters contained in the bylaws or by making a written submission to the attention of the Manager of Legislative Services or by sending an e-mail to the Clerk’s Department at clerks@mapleridge.ca, by 4:00 p.m., November 20, 2012. All written submissions and e-mails will become part of the public record.

If another big one hits, people on risky shorelines should learn sooner if a tsunami is on the way, Emergency Management B.C. said Monday. Now, upon hearing of a possible tsunami from the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Centre, EMBC immediately will fire off e-mails to all local authorities, fire, police, ambulance and the media. And just for good measure, if that’s not enough, EMBC then will Tweet the warning and add to its @EmergencyInfoBC. The government made the changes after the Oct. 27 quake in Haida Gwaii in which some parts of the shoreline learned of tsunami danger an hour after the earthquake. The change in procedure though won’t affect Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows much. The risk for a tidal wave in Maple Ridge is low, said emergency program manager Ceri Marlo. And in any event, cities and towns around B.C. are always first to respond to natural disasters. “We’re ready to locally respond as soon as it’s required,” Marlo said. “They’re [provincial government] there to support us, rather than the

other way around.” If a flood, or forest fire or quake hit Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows either or both municipalities would set up an emergency operations centre, from which a response would be coordinated. Provincial resources then would be allocated only if needed. Another reason for the change in procedure is because the U.S. National Weather Service will no longer issue e-mail tsunami notifications to the public.

Letters of interest should be submitted by November 16 and include an indication of why the candidate wishes to serve along with their professional and community involvement background.

Marauders battle back to advance by T i m Fitzg e r ald contributor

The Pitt Meadows Marauders made it four straight wins as their Cinderella season continues after a 28-21 come-from-behind win over Salmon Arm’s Valleyview in B.C. High School Football Association playoff action Friday at B.C. Place. The Marauders, who had to win their three final regular season games just to qualify for the postseason, bounced back against Okanagan runner-up Valleyview, who opened a 14-0 lead just five minutes into the game. Valleyview’s Lliam Wishart took and wide pitch and scored on a two-yard run on their first drive, then hauled in a 15-yard pass from quarterback Kaden Degen to build a two-touchdown league. Marauders coach Matt Todd said his team remained poised despite dropping behind early. “I just told the team to keep their heads up don’t get down,” said Todd. “This kind of thing happened to us earlier and the year and we were able to bounce back. We know what it takes to get back into games.” Anthony Gagnon hauled in a 21-yard touchdown pass from Marauders quarterback Joe Schuster to cut the deficit to 14-7 heading into half time. Todd said the team car out and played a great second half to pull out the win. “A lot of our team’s success is coming from our strong defensive play. We causing a lot of turnovers and that certainly changes the momentum of play,” said Todd. The Marauders evened the game 14-14 early in the third quarter when running back Kyle Heiling scampered 76 yards for the score. The Marauders kept the momentum going with Gagnon’s second TD of the game, hauling in a 40yard pass-and-catch play from Schuster. After a Valleyview TD tied the game, the Marauders defence used another turnover to put them in position to score. After recovering a fumble inside their own 30-yard line, the Marauders marched down the field and capped of the scoring with Heiling’s second TD of the game, a four-yard plunge to play-dirt. The win sets up a quarter final playoff date with the number-one ranked John Barsby Bulldogs of Naniamo , who trounced Holy Cross 57-14. Coach Todd said his team will spend the week studying film of the Bulldogs and will not be intimidated by the their opponent’s ranking. “The Bulldogs love to run the ball a lot so we will look to cause some turnovers and help out our offense,” said Todd. • Game time for the quarterfinals goes Saturday, Nov. 17 at 3 p.m. at UBC Thunderbird Stadium.

Flames look to improve offensive consistency by T i m Fit z geral d contributor

The Ridge Meadows Flames may have grabbed three out of a possible four points over the weekend, but head coach and general manager Jamie Fiset put his team on notice that it needs to start playing more consistent hockey if it hopes to have any kind of success this season. The Flames doubled up the Port Moody Panthers Friday night with a 6-3 win after dropping a 5-4 double overtime decision to the Mission

City Outlaws the night before. “We certainly weren’t happy with the overtime loss to Mission,” said Fiset, who let his players know with a closed-door meeting after Thursday’s loss. “We communicated to them exactly what is expected of them as far as consistency is concerned, ad they responded Friday night.” The junior B hoceky coach said the team used a balanced attack from all four lines Friday against the Panthers as 13 different Flames registered a point on the score sheet. Fiset said he has been

especially pleased with forward’s Chris Nakamura and Mitchell Plevy’s performance over the past few games. “Both of them have played some real solid hockey for us lately and it’s starting to show up n the scoresheet,” he said. However, the coach wasn’t as impressed with his team’s play the night before. While the Flames showed resiliency bouncing back from a pair of two-goal deficits in the game, the coach said it has been an all too familiar story line. “You could tell from the drop of the puck that

we weren’t firing on all cylinders. You would think that after battling back from a pair of two-goal deficits that we would have the momentum going into the overtime, but it wasn’t there,” said Fiset. Fiset said he’s hoping for more scoring from his second line on down and addressed the issue by picking up a couple of players on the weekend. The Flames have added forwards Vitalik Morozov of Port Moody and Kurt Thrussell of the North Delta Devils. He said he’s hoping their acquisition can create a more balanced offensive

attack. Through the first 16 games of the season, the Flames have scored 49 goals, while giving up 63. Fiset will also be looking to fill an opening on the back end after learning defenceman Brad Wardner will be sidelined for the remainder of the season because of concussion problems. Fiset said more roster moves are on the way. • The Flames travel to Richmond to take on the Sockeyes Thursday night before returning home Friday for a rematch with the Mission City Outlaws. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Planet Ice.

Rest in Peace Son.

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Evelyn Bertha (Yousie) Trembath. Evelyn was born at the home farm in Zelma, Saskatchewan February 20,1926, one of the 7 children of Amos & Evelina Yousie. Evelyn is predeceased by all her siblings, Merle (Roy) Isherwood, Lawrence (Ruth), Clayton (Bemie), Howard (Kay), Wes (Emma), Floyd (Lillian) & her husband Robert Trembath. Evelyn left the home farm at the age of 16 to live in Saskatoon and was employed at Golfs Chocolate Shop on 2nd Avenue, where she met Robert and they were later married, November 10, 1945. They soon relocated to Victoria where two daughters, Evelyn (Denise) and Robyn were born. They moved on to Dawson Creek and eventually to Whitehorse where two sons, Trace & Scott were born. Edmonton soon became home and then an eventual return to Vancouver. Evelyn loved gardening. Flower and vegetable gardens flourished under her care. She loved to bake and she made the best butter tarts, pastries and pies. She was a fantastic seamstress and a keen knitter and passed her skills on to her daughters & granddaughters. Evelyn is survived by two sisters-in-law, Bernie (Clayton) of Saskatoon and Emma (Wes) from Colonsay Saskatchewan. Also, many nieces and nephews to numerous to list. She will be remembered with much love by her four children, her four grandchildren, and two great-grandsons. Expressions of sympathy may be made in memory of Evelyn by way of a donation to a charity of choice, Project Limelight or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
