Maple Ridge sues ex-mayor Golf course not allowed under current zoning by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter

The District of Maple Ridge is suing a former mayor for operating a golf course on property in violation of current zoning. The civil suit, filed Monday, al-

leges Gordon and Mary Robson are in contravention of a district bylaw and must permanently cease operating of the Heather Hills Golf Course. It seeks the removal of all golfcourse related infrastructure including the club house, tents, golf carts as well as food and beverage services. “We think the golf course is out of step with the zoning and we will bring compliance to it one way or the other,” said Reece Harding, the

district’s solicitor, with the law firm Young Anderson. “It’s a non-permitted use, from the district’s perspective. Golf courses are not allowed in this zone.” Located in Webster’s Corner, on 117th Avenue, the property lies within the provincially protected Agricultural Land Reserve and is currently zoned one family residential under the district’s bylaw. Anderson said the district tried to get the Robsons to stop operating

the golf course voluntarily by sending them a letter in February. The legal action is being pursued because the Robsons’ did not comply. “It’s gone unresolved,” he added. “But we are always open to talking.” The golf course is operated seasonally, from spring through the end of summer, as part of the nonprofit Heather Hills Farm Society. see Robson, p5

arald Mischke admits forestry is a complicated business and that he doesn’t have all the answers, but some are just common sense. Mischke owns Cedarland Forest Products, at the north end of 256th Street in Maple Ridge. With just a few companies now harvesting, he has to rely on one to supply the huge western red cedar slabs that the mill turns into high-end decking, siding and panelling, which it sells around the world. It’s a precarious existence. If his supplier decides to no longer sell him the raw cedar, he’s out of business. “This is the line we are facing and will continue to face unless some changes are made.” Mischke made the comments Wednesday to visiting NDP candidates Mike Bocking and Elizabeth Rosenau. “Break down the monopoly of timber ownership on the coast. There is too much timber power in too few hands,” he told them.

Riding in focus: Maple Ridge-Mission by Monisha M ar t ins staff reporter

B

.C. Liberal Marc Dalton is vying for a second term in Victoria and facing a familiar foe. In 2009, Dalton defeated New Democrat Mike Bocking by 68 votes. Before that, the riding was held by Liberal Randy Hawes, who went on to represent neighbouring AbbotsfordMission. Dalton and Bocking are facing off again this election, which is Tuesday. A public school teacher, Dalton is Métis and previously ran as a federal Conservative candidate. As MLA for Maple Ridge-Mission, he was targeted for recall in 2011 as part of the anti-Harmonized Sales Tax campaign, but survived after organizers failed to collect enough signatures to trigger a by-election. Dalton says there are numerous projects he is proud of, but he has also come to realize, many of them don’t happen over night. There are still many more improvements he would like to make for the riding and the Elections B.C.

Maple Ridge-Mission has more home owners (82 per cent of residents) than most other electoral districts.

Questions were sent to all candidates in the Maple Ridge-Mission riding. Liberal Marc Dalton, B.C. New Democrat Mike Bocking and Green Party candidate Alex Pope responded by the submission deadline.

Dalton

1. Name, occupation, residence: Marc Dalton; School District 42 teacher prior to being elected in 2009; Albion area of Maple Ridge. 2. Education: Bachelor of Arts in History and French (SFU), Masters Degree in Educa-

tional Leadership (SFU). 3. What have you personally achieved, or what initiative have you personally led in recent years that qualifies you to be elected or reelected as a MLA? It’s been a privilege representing Maple Ridge and Mission as MLA. Some of the projects I’ve worked on: • economic development, such as Maple Ridge downtown improvements, road work to the proposed Tim Horton Children’s Foundation camp and regional recreational area on the Maple Ridge-Mission border, a new educational observatory and the expansion of the Mission Memorial Hospital; • advocated for numerous non-profits, resulting in positive outcomes including North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association, Community Living program at Ridge Meadows Recycling, the Caring Place and youth diversion; • Parliamentary secretary for independent schools, member of the finance committee, having province-wide consultations in communities in order to make budget recommendations; • helped implement Experience The Fraser, a significant trails, tourism and environmental project; • tax credit for children’s sports and arts was implemented as a result of my proposal, my constituency office provided non-partisan support for hundreds of residents.

province, and that’s why he wants another term in office. A former Vancouver Sun reporter and current president of the Media Union of B.C., Local 2000, Bocking is a veteran campaigner. He ran federally against Conservative MP Randy Kamp in 2004, 2006 and 2008, losing each time. Alex Pope, chair of the bicycle advisory committee in Maple Ridge, will run for the Greens. A computer programmer who’s worked for the federal Liberals, Pope tried for a seat on Maple Ridge council in the 2011 election. Chad Thompson, an entrepreneur and small business owner with an automotive background, is running for the B.C. Conservatives. He has a show dog named Marshall. Maple Ridge-Mission is an electoral district with a small percentage of visible minorities, who only comprise 12 per cent of the total population. Seniors account for 11 per cent of the population. The riding also has more home owners than most other districts, with 82 per cent of residents owning their own houses, according to statistics from 2006. The top three industries in Maple Ridge-Mission are retail trade, manufacturing and health care.

1. Name, occupation, residence: Mike Bocking; journalist; Silverdale, Mission. 2.  Education: studied political science and economics at the University of B.C. for several years, left when offered a job at Vancouver Sun. 3. What have you personally achieved, or what initiative have you personally led in recent years that qualifies you to be elected or re-elected as a MLA? I have been active in my community of Mission ever since we moved here in 1998. I have served on the board of diBocking rectors of Mission Community Services Society, which oversees numerous non-profit, charitable initiatives in the Mission area. I have been a member of CAUSS, an environmental group that promotes environmental awareness and sustainability issues in Mission. Most recently, in 2009, I was part of a group that successfully opposed the closure of the emergency ward of Mission Memorial Hospital. 4&5. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them; What are the most significant issues facing B.C. and how would you do address them? I’ve answered questions Nos. 4 and 5 together, as I believe the priorities for Maple Ridge and Mission are also the main priorities for the province. • Education: The NDP would provide students with the classroom support they need, hiring new teachers, education assistants, librarians and counsellors. Recognizing that most of the jobs of the future will require more than a high school education, we will significantly increase spaces for trades’ training, technical school, colleges and universities, as well as establishing a $100 million needs-based nonrepayable student grant program. • Health: A top priority would be to expand home support and community care for seniors, people with disabilities and people with chronic conditions, as well as improving service levels in B.C.’s residential care facilities, which will free up acute care beds in hospitals and reduce waiting lists.

What have you personally achieved, or what initiative have you personally led in recent years that qualifies you to be elected as a MLA? I have been locally active in promoting the improvement of conditions for safer cycling through the Bicycle Advisory Committee and HUB Cycling Committee.  I have also Pope served on a variety of boards/committees over the past 15 years and learned how to work effectively in groups to solve problems and obtain consensus.  4. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them? Both Maple Ridge and Mission, like many B.C. communities, are starting to make some small improvements for pedestrians and cyclists, despite very limited funding. Unfortunately the same can’t be said about transit. In the past few months, our citizens in Maple Ridge had to step up and speak out so that TransLink wouldn’t reduce what little bus service we have. We need to reallocate funding to prioritize sustainable transportation and provide convenient, accessible, and affordable alternatives to driving a single-occupant automobile. In the Albion area, we are several years overdue in having a new school built. As more young families move to the area, the need for a solution is becoming more critical. Meanwhile, our school board is struggling to find ways to trim their budget yet again without significantly impacting the quality of our children’s education. The criteria we use for determining whether to build a new school needs to be changed to take into account situations where an increase in population density in one area of a school district creates a need for a new school and we need to provide adequate funding for our education system because our long-term economic health depends on having a well-educated population.

Car Care with Cyril Barry

AUTO AIR CONDITIONING Brrrrrrrrrr. . . . That’s the feeling you want when you turn on your Air Conditioning (A/C) full blast on a hot day. Are you confused by the new BC regulations concerning A/C repairs or retro-fits, as they are now called? If so you are not alone, so sit back and I will try to explain it to you. Auto A/C in its simplest form is a closed, high pressure system that contains a refrigerant that cycles through a group of many parts, found under the hood as well as inside the passenger compartment. It does not cool the air, but rather it extracts heat from the air inside the vehicle into the refrigerant, which is then pumped to a large radiator looking component (A/C condenser) located in front of the coolant radiator. The A/C system moves the heat from inside the car to the condenser, where the air blowing through it removes the heat from the refrigerant. From here it is then pumped by the A/C compressor into the car to remove more heat. The engine coolant system is designed to remove heat from the radiator in exactly the same way as the A/C system does through the condenser. Both systems depend on each other. Therefore if your coolant system is not working at peak efficiency, your A/C system will not perform at its best either. Most A/C system failures are due to a refrigerant leak somewhere in the system. This results in a low charge (amount of refrigerant under pressure), and you lose the amount of cold air coming out of the vent. The auto A/C is a high pressure, closed system, a perfect example of this type of system is a tire. When a tire loses air (its charge), do you keep adding air or do you fix the leak and then add air? The A/C is the same, to fix the system you don’t top it up, as some would have you believe, as it will leak out and you end up with the same problem. A proper repair procedure involves finding and repairing the leak(s) before recharging the system with refrigerant (R134a). This procedure is also mandated by provincial law. In BC all vehicles currently using the old ozone depleting R12 refrigerant must be converted/retro-fitted to R134a refrigerant when being repaired, without exceptions. . . The majority of cost involved in an A/C repair is in repairing the leaks or a compressor failure. So the most important part of the job is the System Performance Test which determines what the problem is first, before you proceed with the repairs. So do not be led astray by unscrupulous repair shops, but be prepared, as some A/C repairs are quite costly.

Dalton from p3

4. What are the most significant issues facing your riding and what would you do about them? Economic development is of prime importance for Maple Ridge and Mission. It is essential for job opportunities, revenues and the environment by reducing commuting. I will continue to work collaboratively with both communities to assist. There are many small businesses in the region. I support the B.C. Liberals plan to lower the small business tax rate. Over the next five years, we plan to maintain the current low personal income tax rate. Since we have been in government, income taxes have been reduced by one third for most people. Transportation and highway improvements are also an important issue for me: on-going four-laning of Highway 7, improved West Coast Express service and transit between Maple Ridge and Mission. It is my goal to see a new elementary school built that services the Albion area. 5. What are the most significant issues facing B.C. and how would you do address them? I support a strong economy. It ensures that there are jobs and provides funding for programs and services that we value, such as health care, education and transportation. Under the B.C. Liberals, British Columbia has maintained a strong economy despite a world-wide recession. This is evidenced by a low unemployment rate, a Triple-A credit rating and significant transportation and infrastructure improvements everywhere. A B.C. Liberal government is committed to living within our means, paying down debt, and not increasing income taxes or the Carbon Tax for five years. We support the sustainable development of our natural gas and mining sectors, as well as all sectors of our economy. These strategies will create tens of thousands of good-paying jobs and provide more opportunities for everyone.

Bocking from p3

Pope from p3

The NDP would strengthen primary and community health services to relieve pressure on acute care, by improving access to multi-disciplinary health clinics, including nurse practitioners and other health professionals. The NDP would also increase access to mental health and addiction services. • Public transit: Getting around the Lower Mainland has become more difficult and costly in the past 10 years with toll bridges and inadequate public transit. The NDP would use carbon tax revenue to expand public transit, including the West Coast Express. We would also work for a bus route linking the Mission with Maple Ridge bus systems.

5. What are the most significant issues facing B.C. and how would you address them? For our long-term economic health, we need to adapt to a changing world. By investing in new infrastructure, green technology, retrofits of houses and buildings, and advanced education designed to educate young people and retrain skilled workers for the new economy, we can transform the B.C. economy. A switch to clean industries and technologies; a re-investment in traditional industries like forestry, fisheries, and agriculture using sustainable practices; a return to local provision of social and health services; and support for arts and culture will create thousands of new jobs. All of these jobs mean money flowing through the economy and retaining that money in the local region. Greens plan to reduce taxes on businesses that are responsible and sustainable. We will work with business and industry to create lasting, skilled, and meaningful jobs. At the same time, we will reduce the emissions that are changing our climate.

‘This is better than fallow farmland’ Robson from front

The Robson family invested in the property in the mid-1970s and planted several acres of Scottish Heather, that is still grown on the property. Over the years, neighbouring properties were purchased and a large hazelnut grove was added. Poor soil conditions, pest and disease eventually wiped out much of the orchard. After the loss, the Robson wanted to maintain the “uniqueness of the property” so decided to turn a portion of it into a golf course to “sustain” their non-profit society. Construction of the golf course began in 2005. It currently has about 30 members. “This is better than all the fallow farmland you see around,” said Robson. Today, the Robsons raise 27 sheep on the property and are testing a genetically modified species of blight-resistant hazelnuts they hope to eventually plant around the property. The wool from the sheep goes to local weavers and they are eventually sold for meat. Charities and church groups often use the golf

Gordy and Mary Robson have sheep and lamas on their Heather Hills property. course for fundraisers, with Robson estimating they’ve raised more than $100,000 since Heather Hills opened. They also use the land to promote farming, while using revenue generated from the golf course to support the non-profit society’s work with youth advocacy, sports and community groups. The “club house” the district wants him to remove is a removable tent structure, while the “food and beverage service” consists of a small bar fridge with pop and water and an assortment

of packaged nuts. Robson was surprised by the law suit. The property is classified as “farm class” by B.C.’s property assessment authority, which permits agri-tourism. He has a business license from the district for agri-tourism and got a legal opinion in 2011 to make sure that a golf course met the requirements of the Agricultural Land Commission Act. The land commission considers the golf course a nonfarm use. “I don’t know why they are coming after me,” said Robson. “It might

be political.” Robson has yet to file a statement of defence, but has hired municipal litigator and civic law expert Johnathan Baker as his lawyer. Robson was the mayor of Maple Ridge for one term, but was defeated in 2008 by the district’s current mayor, Ernie Daykin. It’s not the first time he’s tussled with the district in court. Robson sued the district over a P-3 downtown redevelopment project that eventually led to the project being declared illegal.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Really, there is no excuse not to vote If the last time B.C. voters went to the polls is any indication, you’re just as likely not to cast a ballot in Tuesday’s provincial election as you are to mark your X. In 2009, just 50 per cent of eligible voters turned out at the polls to make their voice heard. In fact, voter turnout has been declining steadily since 1983, when 70 per cent of eligible voters exercised their franchise. It’s not like voting is hard work. Short of knocking on your front door and sticking a ballot under your nose, Elections B.C. has made it increasingly easier and more convenient to vote. Advance polls opened Wednesday, and they’ll remain open through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters could also cast their ballot at their nearest electoral office from the call of the election right up until election day. There’s an electoral office in every riding and they’re open until 4 p.m. It’s even possible to vote by mail. Residents who won’t be in their electoral district on voting day can vote in any other riding in the province. In Comox, voters can stay in their cars, as a drive-thru polling station will be set up at a former car dealership. And while Elections B.C. has studied the viability of online voting, there’s no guarantee that would increase voter participation. In Markham, Ont., where residents have been allowed to vote online in the past three municipal elections, participation didn’t increase, but it also didn’t decline. So, really, there’s no excuses not to vote. Not even the distraction of a Vancouver Canucks’ playoff run. – Black Press

The public didn’t bring up education This girl is want; this boy is ignorance. Beware them both, but mostly beware this boy – A Christmas Carol

T

he NDP promise $265 million to improve learning conditions in B.C. schools over three years – new Along the Fraser teachers, librarians, Jack Emberly counsellors – to reduce the want and ignorance of children in a deteriorating public education system. “It would take $3.3 billion to bring conditions in schools back to where we were in 2001,” says BCTF outgoing president Susan Lambert. The dollar figure “was reported by the provincial organization representing the province’s secretary treasurers,” she says. “We’ve lost 1,500 learning assistants, special education and ESL teachers. I’ve heard of many classes with 12 and even more students with special education designations ... the system is unable to meet the needs of these students.” An apathetic public has watched this decline with disinterest since 2001, a fact that explains why educational support was rarely mentioned after the NDP’s announcement, April 18th. None of the leaders broached it during the televised debate. Last Friday, on CBC radio, Education Minister Don McRae offered an explanation.

Q

uestion of the week:

“The public didn’t bring it up,” he said. It’s teachers who do that. You can’t be apathetic when you struggle to help kids with learning difficulties keep up in your classroom. Reasonable class size and composition, fully supported, are essential. The Liberals have dismissed that argument. In 2002, they stripped learning conditions from collective bargaining. “With the contractual agreement gone,” says Lambert, “government has been able to cut education budgets by $275 every year since.” For that, they get an F on my report. What about the NDP? At the moment, an ‘I’ for incomplete. The promise of on-going funding is encouraging, but the NDP’s commitment historically makes it suspect. In 1994, under the NDP’s watch, North Vancouver School District closed its learning centre, blaming lack of ministry funding. It was the only place with specially trained staff and programs that could help Jeffery Moore, a Grade 3 student with a learning disability. North Van and the government both acted incorrectly, said the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in 2005. It upheld Jeffery’s right – under the School Act – to learn to his own potential. Furthermore, said Tribunal chair Heather McNaughton, the problem was systemic – occurring in all districts. A stitch in time saves nine. The province could have funded equal educational opportunity from then on. Instead, it appealed to a higher court to evade its responsibility. That forced school districts to cut programs that would help public school kids enjoy the learning opportuni-

ties offered those at private schools. Since 1994, school boards throughout B.C. have dutifully balanced budgets at the expense of support staff, music, counseling. In Maple Ridge this year, cuts affected support services, helping teachers, and librarians. The latter delight kids in story circles, and inspire them to read good literature. This should infuriate parents of school-age kids, but most chairs set out for the public at the board’s budget meeting were empty. Apathy grows when the news worsens. Protesters who attended budget cuts in 2011 left frustrated. The board had axed a popular band program. Secretary Treasurer, Wayne Jefferson said: “We have to get the education plan to fit the financial envelope.” (The News, May, 2011). It’s the line all school boards have used since 1994. Children deserve more. Lambert thinks the government wants public education to be unattractive. “In our view,” says Lambert, “the trends we see in education policy are designed to undermine the public system in favor of encouraging private alternatives.” Where would that leave kids who can’t afford them? In 2010, youth rioted in England because they’d lost hope that a weak public system could provide skills and knowledge needed to get a job. After the fires died down, it was discovered two-thirds of the rioters had learning difficulties. Charles Dickens was right. A society that lets kids grow up wanting and ignorant will face their fury.

Invest in human infrastructure

Editor, The News: I’d like to thank School District No. 42 for releasing its preliminary operating budget. It calls for a reduction of 11.7 elementary school teachers and 9.2 secondary school teachers. What a thankless job. When the province fails to fund education, teachers get laid off. It’s the least senior teachers who get axed, and that means the newer programs. My daughter loves the Montessori program at Hammond elementary, with its integrated grade levels and specially trained teachers. It is a carefully planned program, supported by decades of research and it is blazing a trail for the mainstream program to follow. All of the Montessori teachers have received lay-off notices. Some may be hired back, but some may be replaced by teachers who have more seniority but no Montessori training. This program has a three-year cycle and kids need stability. What’s the point of working tirelessly to improve our schools if it’s going to be slashed a few years later? I’ve just read that Christy Clark says Marc Dalton believes in choices for families. But here we see what happens when you put dollars ahead of families.

“It’s better – and cheaper – to build children than mend adults.” Do they think voters will vote for whatever party has a zero at the bottom of the balance sheet, whatever the consequences? Clark said the Liberals have committed to spending $10 billion on capital infrastructure. What? How about paying people to educate our kids so that we have a strong human infrastructure? We have schools, let’s invest in good people to work in them. It’s better – and cheaper – to build children than mend adults. James Rowley Maple Ridge

Effective community engagement Emberly from p6

Monday, local candidates at Thomas Haney secondary shared plans for public education. Some think the system isn’t really “deteriorating.” Greens and Conservatives said it needs help, though. There was talk of subsidized daycare, tax relief, or RESPS. Liberal Doug Bing said the system is the best in the world and criticism is “unwarranted.” NDP candidates noted the disappointing turn out – 70 people, a lot of school trustees, PAC members, teachers. That’s more than attended the school board’s budget meeting. Following the vote, the board set off for the B.C. School Trustee Association’s annual general meeting at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna, for a workshop was called “What does it take to organize and facilitate effective community engagement?” That’s simple. It takes schools that support the learning needs of all students, and enrich their lives with programs for drama, music, and athletics. That would put an end to public apathy. Don’t forget to vote. Jack Emberly is a retired teacher, local author and environmentalist.

Margo Elliott and area residents want a marked crosswalk on 225th Street at 116th Avenue, by Brickwood Park, where they say speeding drivers make it difficult for seniors who live on the east side to get to the park on the west. THE NEWS/files

‘I do slow down off bypass’ Editor, The News: Regarding Margo Elliott and her fellow seniors, I strongly object to her saying “everybody’s speeding up and nobody stops for pedestrians.” I do slow down coming off the Haney Bypass and at every intersection if there is a turn being made, and if there are pedestrians, I do stop. I also object to many of the things

Maple Ridge has done to cause slowing down in places where there are already speed limits in place and corners, such as 227th Street and 122nd Avenue, in front of Maple Ridge secondary. I believe these may have caused another set of difficulties. for delivery trucks, RVs and emergency vehicles trying to use the roads. I believe that pedestrians need to

become more accountable for their actions. How many cross away from corners or just cross without stopping, looking and listening, scaring drivers and causing them to panic? It would be interesting to know how many jaywalking tickets have been given out in our community. Alice Sanderson Maple Ridge

Growth can be good if focused on humans Editor, The News: What does it mean when our political leaders constantly talk about ‘growing the economy?’ Usually a growing economy is measured by the Gross Domestic Product. If it goes up, we seem to be doing well. However, the GDP is a very poor measurement of people’s well being. It only measures the level of economic activity, never the efficiency of the economy or the well-being of the people or the well-being of the environment. It measures the good and the bad: if an oil spill occurs or a hurricane demolishes many homes, economic ac-

tivity occurs, our economy grows. An alternative measure of well being would be for example the Index of sustainable Economic Welfare, or Genuine Progress Indicator. It measures whether people are really better off. We also hear about ‘jobs, jobs, jobs.’ Many jobs now are being ‘grown’ oversees, in outsourcing to Bangladesh or Africa or China, in factories with substandard social and health standards at less than subsistence wages. How can we compete in an ever-downspiralling trend for cheaper goods? What jobs do we want to

grow? I would think long-lasting, safe and well-paid jobs with benefits and retirement packages, not part-time, short contract jobs that do not feed a family or protect for the future. Over decades, unions have safeguarded minimum wages and good working conditions, which raises the standard for all. Does growing the economy mean more consumption? Buying more? Getting deeper into debt? Continuing progress should not lead to ever-escalating levels of consumption, but to a society where improving productivity and

technology would provide higher quality goods, better health and more leisure. Growth has become a mantra that wants us to believe that everything is fine if we just get those GDP numbers up. It has no relationship to well being and genuine progress. Growth can be good if it is focused on human beings and includes the preservation of the natural habitat that sustains us. So far, however, we have mostly grown debt. Instead of growing the economy, we should grow the well-being of our people. Maria Raynolds Maple Ridge

Obfuscation for the purpose of bewildering Editor, The News: Acts of Faith writer Brad Warner and his ilk, ironically, attempt   to convince believers and everyone else, that his ‘wisdom,’ or lack of it, are proof of his version of a god? I guess that’s the point of these ceaseless feeble  parables that these self-appointed preachers inflict on

those of us who like to read printed pulp. For instance, this recent attempt to lasso the hockey fan. In this case,  he targets those that have decided that the Canucks are the chosen idols. Mr. Warner questions out loud for us, because we obviously can’t think for ourselves, “when does

something move from being a gift in a person’s life to being a ‘god’ in that persons life,” then he goes on with a lot of this and that, of inconclusive and noncommitted drivel about vague mysterious and partial, non-answers to a question that he himself has just posed. Now if that’s not some

sort of obfuscation for the purpose of bewildering, and then leading the bewildered, I don’t know what is. This is the typical tactic of ‘preachers’ I’ve witnessed so far. It’s obviously not moral and surely its not legal. Is it? If not, how can I get in on this racket? Grant Baker Maple Ridge

Changes at Ridge Meadows Hospital have streamlined treatment for patients visiting emergency, and for children who need to access the pediatrics ward. Dr. Don Kim, who heads the emergency department, said there used to be unacceptably long waits in the emergency ward. The most critical patients – those suffering from heart attacks, strokes and other life-threatening health problems – would be at the front of the line. That used to mean people with breaks, sprains, cuts requiring stitches or pain relief would be forced to wait at the end of the line, often for hours. Some would eventually leave untreated, said Kim. “Once we opened RAZ, the impact was quite tremendous,” he said Wednesday at an event to show the changed facility to members of the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation, key donors and guests. Physically, the new Rapid Assessment Zone (RAZ) is an area with reclining chairs in which patients can be treated expediently, without having to be admitted. In the past, they would be “competing” for acute care beds with sicker patients, explained Kim. Now, patients with less critical injuries can be treated in the RAZ without having to be admitted. There is an extra physician available for the RAZ unit, when necessary. Kim has worked at the hospital for 17 years and said the RAZ is the most significant development in emergency care there since the ward first opened, because waiting times dropped immediately. Other hospitals in Fraser Health have RAZ units, but not all.

Dr. John Archer watches Tristan Lahti play on a Wii video game console in the new paediatric observation unit at Ridge Meadows Hospital. There is also a new pediatric observation unit at Ridge Meadows Hospitals, which has been operational for 15 weeks. It allows streamlined care for children coming to hospital. Tristan Lahti, 11, talked about how the new unit has changed his hospital visits. He has a hereditary blood disorder, and he’s had his spleen removed. He now has a compromised immune system that can’t fight off bacterial infections, so he is a regular hospital patient. “When I get sick, I’m scared to tell my mom, because I know I’ll have to get an IV,” he explained. His mother Laurie explained how streamlined their hospital visits have become – now that he is able to go straight to the new pediatric observation unit, where he can play on the Wii console game, and wait for a blood test and an IV. “I really like the new way better – we went straight upstairs and the nurses had a room ready,” said

Tristan. “The nurses are nice too, and they know how to take care of kids.” He thanked the Starlight foundation for the Wii and other toys. Laurie said there was even a new cot in Tristan’s room for her to stay on, “Which made a huge difference to me. Having a good night’s sleep is the best thing.” Dr. John Archer, head of pediatrics, said the new process is innovative, and unique in the province, if not the country. It gets kids out of the emergency ward, and also avoids having them transferred to other hospitals. “Treat them timely, and get them home,” is the new mantra. In 15 weeks, 603 patients have benefitted from the rejuvenated pediatric service. “I see us as having a mini Children’s Hospital,” said Ron Antalek, chairman of the hospital foundation. “All these stories inspire us to want to have a better hospital.”

Changing the way we govern The Liberal government has wasted millions of taxpayer’s dollars on misleading advertising. They have attacked the Office of the Auditor General and eroded freedom of information protection. The NDP will ban partisan government advertising, prohibit political donations by unions and corporations, and strengthen freedom of information protection. If elected I will work conscientiously with Members from all parties to bring transparency and accountability to government.

‘B.C. needs to go back to old rules’ Forestry from front

B.C. also needs to go back to the old rules, of forest companies only being able to harvest in areas where they have sawmills, ensuring local jobs. That system, known as appurtenance, was removed by the Liberal government in 2003, allowing companies to close mills and encouraging export of logs. “No mills … no quota,” he said. “The status quo is not the way to go,” he told the guests, which included AbbotsfordMission candidate Preet Rai and former NDP forests minister Dennis Streifel. “We seem to be missing the boat for some reason.” Neither does it make sense for B.C. to allow exports of large cedar slabs to China, where they’re turned into the same products Cedarland makes. Those products are then sold abroad, competing in the same markets as Cedarland, using B.C.’s wood processed with cheaper Chinese labour. “Even our customers

Premier Clark arrives in Maple Ridge to boost Liberal campaigns third visit since March by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter

With less than a week to election day and polls tightening, Premier

Christy Clark made a pit stop in Maple Ridge Wednesday to boost the B.C. Liberal campaign. A throng of supporters welcomed the premier to Marc Dalton’s campaign office, where she delivered a rousing speech as a screen broadcasting the “NDP Spend-O-Me-

tre” rolled dollars signs out of control. “Do we grow our economy? Do we keep it strong or do we take another path and put it all at risk?” shouted Clark to applause and loud cheers. “That’s the question we have in front of us on

I live the good life to be the

best teammate, friend and mother I can be.

May 14. Do we say yes to growing our economy? Do we say yes to government spending?” A new poll commissioned by the Times Colonist newspaper released Thursday indicates the New Democratic Party’s lead has narrowed to just four percentage points. According to Oracle Research Ltd., if an election were held today, 41 per cent of those polled would back the B.C. NDP while 37 per cent would vote to re-elect the B.C. Liberals. Wednesday’s trip to Maple Ridge was the third time Clark has visited the area since the end of March. Two weeks ago, she attended a similar campaign rally for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows

No advance polls in Pitt Voters in Pitt Meadows are voicing their frustration to elections B.C. because no advance voting locations are available in the city this year. “I fail to understand why the residents of Pitt Meadows are treated in this inequitable fashion” said Bill Gordon, who has lived in the city since 1993. “As far as we can recall, we have been able to exercise our right to vote, be it in provincial or federal elections

candidate Doug Bing. Clark dismissed suggestions that Dalton and Bing needed her help to raise their profile locally. Bing is a first time provincial candidate, while Dalton won a slim victory in Maple Ridge -Mission during the last election, with a 68-vote margin.

“I’ve been to lots of riding since mid-March because I’m working as hard as I absolutely can to support our candidates across the province,” said Clark. “I think Marc Dalton has done an absolutely sterling job of representing this community and I want to support him.

Doug has been a great member of this community for a long time so I wanted to be here to support both of them in their race to become MLAs. I need them in Victoria if we are going to grow the economy and keep government spending under control.” For Linda Cucek, a Mission resident and volunteer on Dalton’s campaign, Clark’s visit was a shot in the arm as election day draws near. She gave the premier a hand-made turquoise necklace and a photograph she took two weeks ago at the rally in Pitt Meadows. “It was for luck,” said Cucek, explaining she chose turquoise to match Clark’s blue eyes. “I think she is the best premier.”

right here in our beloved city.” this year however, both advance poll locations are in Maple Ridge. elections B.C. understands the locations are a bit of trek for Pitt Meadows residents but had no alternative. Polling stations must be wheel-chair accessible and close to transit. “I really did my homework,” Lucille Gibeault, the district electoral officer for Maple Ridge - Pitt Meadows. Pitt Meadows’ family recreation centre is under renovation, as is the Ramada Inn on Lougheed highway.

she couldn’t find space at other community halls and the south Bonson Community Centre is not on a bus route. she tried to book city hall’s boardroom but was unable to since city hall would have to remain open on a saturday when it’s usually closed. there was no space at the library either and the hockey arena was not suitable. the closest place Gibeault found was the Maple Ridge Alliance Church at the corner of 203rd and Dewdney trunk Road. “It’s just inside the boundary,” she said.

“It’s not like I didn’t try.” But Pitt Meadows mayor Deb walters suggested elections B.C. should have contacted her or the city’s chief administrative officer. “we would have found a space for them,” said walters. “this is a frustrating situation for our citizens. If the idea is, as suggested by elections B.C. to encourage residents to get out and vote, we need to provide voting options that are easy and accessible … making them go out of their way to another municipality is not only discouraging, It is unacceptable.”

Layoff notices to 177 SD 42 teachers

Great Savings. Great Prices. Look for your Safeway flyer starting in next Wednesday’s edition of the Maple Ridge News!

by J eff Nagel Black Press

The lack of funding in public education was underlined by layoff notices given to 177 teachers in the Ridge Meadows School District, says the teacher’s union. George Serra, president of the Maple Ridge Teachers’ Association, concedes that most of the teachers will be hired back. A number with lower seniority are served layoff notices near the end of every school year, in case the

district does not have a position for them in September. However, Serra points out that last year there were 106 teachers given layoff notices, so the number is up about 67 per cent. He said the number is linked to the school district’s $5.6 million budget shortfall. Last year, teachers with 4.1 years of seniority or less received layoff notices. This year, the number has moved upward of six years – people who thought they had finally earned a degree of job security and reached the point

where they could invest in a home or make other long-term plans. “They thought they had weathered the storm,” Serra said. According to the district’s 2013-2014 school year budget, there will be a reduction of 34 full-time equivalent (FTE) positions. The board also responded that of the 106 teachers who were given layoff notices last year, the vast majority were recalled to continuing or temporary positions by Sept. 1, 2012, and by the end of October all remain-

ing teachers had been recalled to temporary positions. The board expects that all teachers who are not part of the budgeted 34 FTE reduction will be able to return again next year, if not in September, then as positions open. Serra said the uncertainty caused by layoff notices will see some young teachers looking for a secure position elsewhere. “The biggest reason this is happening is underfunding,” said Serra. “Next week is an election, and we have a bit of an opportunity.” In a press release issued earlier this week, Serra said the Liberal government keeps “parroting” that education funding is higher than ever, but it has not funded the district at a level that accounts for inflation, rising MSP premiums and other budget pressures. While enrollment has declined, with boards funded on a per-pupil basis, the union calculates that the result should be a decline of just seven teaching positions in the district.

B.C. Chamber condemns changes to foreign worker program by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Jay Sekhon, who operates the Subway on 224th Street in Maple Ridge, hasn’t yet had to hire any temporary foreign workers. So far, he has only one foreign student working an allowable number of hours, while the rest of the seven or eight on staff are Canadian. “My first priority is local people first,” he says. While several long-time staff work at his shop, there could come a time when he would need temporary foreign workers. “Sometimes we don’t have skilled workers here.” The federal government’s temporary foreign worker program has been under scrutiny for the past year, after it was revealed Chinese miners were being hired for a coal mine in northern B.C. Following an increase in the number of temporary foreign workers, the federal government said this week it would now require companies to pay the workers the same wages as Canadians, require them to have plans in place to hire Canadians, introduce processing fees and ensure French or English are the only languages that can be used as job requirements. Previously, employers could pay up to 15-percent less than prevailing wages for an occupation if they were using foreign workers. The B.C. Chamber of Commerce strongly opposes those changes. “These changes will hit

many B.C. businesses hard – especially small businesses,” said John Winter, the B.C. Chamber president. Businesses, including highly skilled workers in construction to digital industries to tourism and hospitality industries, rely heavily on the temporary foreign worker program to hire skillsets that aren’t available locally, he said. He added that the B.C. Chamber supports efforts to help Canadians fill Canadian jobs and that there are concerns with a few unscrupulous employers. However, the proposed

changes to the program will have serious fallout. “Many of the small B.C. businesses that rely on this program don’t have the deep pockets to weather new costs and can’t afford to have empty positions with no workers available to fill them,” he said. The B.C. Chamber previously told the government to fix the program by enforcing their own regulations and dealing with a small minority of problem employers, rather than changing the program. It also added that businesses are forced to

hire foreign workers because of a lack of labour. The B.C. Chamber didn’t know how many temporary foreign workers were in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, nor did the local chamber. Krista Pitcher, with Global Coffee Inc. in Maple Meadows Business Park, said her business hasn’t considered hiring foreign workers because it wants employees to stay with the company. It recently participated in the Get Youth Working Program offered by Bowman Employment Services out of WorkBC

employment centre and hired a 22-year-old who’s now their customer service rep. The program provides businesses wage subsidies for a few months to help

with the costs of training new employees. “We’d be a part of that program again in a heart beat,” she said. “It gives business like ours an incentive to hire youth who

may not be that skilled.” Pitcher said the business gets enough applicants when it posts a job opening. “It’s a lack of qualified responses … is what we struggle with sometimes.”

The recent back-ups at recycling processors in Metro Vancouver due to tougher standards required by Chinese processors are proving that the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society system has the cleaner, greener way. “We’ve been saying that for a while,” said Kim Day, executive-director at the recycling depot.

recyclables are sorted at the source, at the curbside by homeowners who dutifully put cardboard, papers, cans and plastic into five bags and one blue box. The recyclables are then dumped into separate bins in the recycling trucks so that when those trucks arrive at the depot, there’s far less work to do than a single stream system – in which recyclables are tossed into a single blue bag, then sorted at the recycling centre. The former system produces a cleaner waste stream that’s

uncontaminated and more marketable, allowing shipping to local markets and creating better returns. “We’ve been saying that for a while,” Day said. “We’ve felt that single stream was bad.” Day said the society understands the pros and cons of both systems. Under a single recycling stream, it’s easier for people to collect all their recyclables and toss them into one bag. “You absolutely get more participation – but you get more contamination.” That also means more work in order to clean items at the depot. Making the change over, though, to a separated stream would be pricey for cities. The recycling collection trucks would have to be redesigned to collect the different products, while reconfiguration also would be required at the processing plants. Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, along with the rest of the province are preparing for change that will see virtually all packaging products recycled when Multi-Material B.C. starts recycling packaging and printed paper in May 2014. Maple Ridge has also figured out how to get

people in condos and apartment buildings to recycle, Daykin said. Council heard Monday from Paul Henderson, with Metro Vancouver’s solid waste services, who gave an update about how some haulers are now taking garbage to a transfer stations in Abbotsford instead of facilities in Metro Vancouver. From the transfer stations in Abbotsford, the garbage is likely shipped to the U.S., although Metro Vancouver doesn’t know the precise location. That can cut into tipping fee revenue that Metro Vancouver charges for dumping garbage. Metro Vancouver, as a result, is considering a bylaw that would require all garbage be processed in the region, although approval for that is necessary from the provincial government. Metro Vancouver wants to be diverting or recycling 70 per cent of the garbage it produces by 2015. Henderson said Metro Vancouver’s garbage incinerator in Burnaby generates enough electricity to power 20,000 homes but produces only 0.9 per cent of the region’s nitrogen oxides. “It has no significant contribution to air quality.”

he intent was to get kids to do what they do best, go online to get what they need. But the Hire a Student website operated by Service Canada offers little help, so students may have to do what their parents did, visit a job centre to find a way to earn some scratch for the summer months. With youth employment centres no longer existing, students now will have to visit the WorkBC Employment Services Centre, in the municipal building in downtown Maple Ridge, and compete with adults for jobs. “Anybody over 15 years old should come down and see us. This is going to be your best [chance],” said Karoline deVries, who manages the centre in Maple Ridge. The WorkBC centre last week offered a youth employment workshop and may do so again if there’s demand. While students may find it hard to find a job, they may also find it hard to find the job centre. Many still don’t know who WorkBC is. “They don’t know us. They don’t know who we are.” The new umbrella agency gets both provincial and federal money and offers all employment programs in the province at its WorkBC Employment Services Centres. As word spreads, though, more kids should make their way in. “Some of them are still in school yet.” DeVries said it’s always difficult for students to find work, no matter what the economic conditions. Last year, about 300 kids visited the centre, with July and August being the busiest months. “The numbers of youth coming in the door will definitely increase. Some of them are still in school yet.” The top three occupations for students are

MODERN DAY VETERANS

Be part of 8th military service book NEED YOUR HELP! Stories of our wartime heroes may be at risk of fading away, but there is an ongoing effort by the Royal Canadian Legion to preserve them.  The B.C. Yukon Command of the Legion has now published seven books chronicling the stories those who have

served. The Military Service Recognition Book lists short profiles of members, both late and living, along with their photographs. It also highlights Victoria Cross recipients and includes information on how to support or join the Legion. 

But it can’t exist without public input. The committee responsible for publishing the book annually is currently finishing off the eighth edition, and is seeking more profiles and photographs.  Once published, the book is available for free

at all Legion branches. The best way to be included in the next edition of the of the book is by contacting the coordinator, Gary Peters, online.  • Visit www.legionbcyukon.ca to fill out a form, and then email garypeters@shaw.ca.

FOR A DIGNIFIED FUNERAL AND BURIAL

For over 100 years, the Last Post Fund, a non-profit organization, has ensured that no eligible veteran is denied a dignified funeral and burial, as well as a military gravestone, due to insufficient funds at time of death.

Shoppers and other B.C. visitors driving south to Washington State may be dinged with a border-crossing fee that U.S. officials are eyeing as a potential option to raise money. There’s no indication yet how much it might be, but Canadians who go to the U.S. by air or sea already pay a $5.50 customs fee, which is often built into airline ticket prices. The Department of Homeland Security is to study the idea and report back on its feasibility within nine months. The directive to investigate indicates it would apply to all passenger vehicles and pedestrians crossing the border. It doesn’t specify whether all occupants of a car would be charged, but that appears likely as it does indicate bus and train operators would be expected to charge their passengers. Nor is it clear whether it would be levied both entering and leaving the U.S., or just in one direction.

Bellingham Chamber of Commerce president Ken Oplinger said he assumes the fee would apply on all motorists crossing the border –  Nexus pass holders would not be exempt. The potential toll on border crossers would generate new revenue for the department, which has been forced by arbitrary U.S. budget cuts to reduce customs staffing levels. “We’re opposed to it,” Oplinger said, warning it could do serious damage to the Whatcom County economy. He said the fee would annoy Canadians and deter some of them from coming south to shop, particularly south of Fraser residents heading across for gas and groceries. But he said he’s most concerned the process of collecting the fee may add to the time needed to cross and dramatically lengthen border waits. “If everyone has to stop now to dig around for change in order to cross the border, that’s going to increase the time,” Oplinger said. “That’s certainly going to make for longer lines.”

‘Living wage’ rises to $19.62 Bare-bones family budget covers basic needs only

NaTiOnAl

N a V a R a C D n A r G nT

by J eff Nagel Black Press

SaLeS EvE

An annual recalculation of the so-called “living wage” for Metro Vancouver concludes two working parents must each now earn $19.62 an hour to adequately support a family of four. The calculation, published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, estimates the wage including benefits required for a family of two full-time earners and two young children to meet basic expenses, including rent, child care, food and transportation, once government taxes, credits, deductions and subsidies are taken into account. “The living wage lifts families out of poverty, but it’s based on a bare-

bones budget without the extras many of us take for granted,” said report co-author Iglika Ivanova. Not covered are student loan or credit card debt repayments or any savings for retirement or children’s education. The living wage this year is up 48 cents from $19.14 an hour in 2012 – a jump of 2.5 per cent or nearly double the rate of inflation. That increase is attributed in part to a $28 per month jump in a family’s transportation costs, due to rising costs to own and operate a car and a 13 per cent jump this year in TransLink fares. Rising child care costs, food prices and a four per cent jump in Medical Services Plan premiums were also to blame. Metro’s living wage has climbed from $16.74 in 2008, when the calculation was first made. The CCPA and other advocacy groups are part of a Metro Vancouver

Living Wage for Families campaign that urges employers to pay wages that reflect the real cost of living in their communities. A similar calculation in the Fraser Valley pegged the living wage there at $16.37.

Getting by Monthly living wage budget for Metro Vancouver family of four – $19.62 per hour living wage works out to $35,708 for each parent working full-time. Their monthly spending: • shelter, $1,440; • child care, $1,193; • food, $775; • transportation, $495; • contingency, $229; • clothing and footwear, $192; • MSP premiums, $133; • Non-MSP health care, $133; • parents education, $92; • other household expenses, $729.

Prince Rupert LNG applies for permits Black Press

As the debate over natural gas development dominates the B.C. election campaign, British Gas Group has filed a project description for its proposed liquefied natural gas plant on Ridley Island at the Port of Prince Rupert. One of the largest of five export proposals in the works for B.C.’s North Coast, Prince Rupert LNG proposes to build three production trains with a total capacity of 21 million tonnes per year, to be shipped in specialized tankers to buyers on the Pacific Rim. BG Group has a development agreement with Spectra Energy for a pipeline to bring gas from northeastern B.C. to the coast. Spectra’s Fort Nelson gas processing plant and the Prince Rupert and Kitimat areas were campaign stops for Premier Christy Clark this week, as she continues to promote LNG development as the key to prosperity for the province. The NDP again stressed its support for LNG development, rejecting B.C. Liberal suggestions that its scientific review of shale gas drilling would disrupt industry expansion plans. The proposal calls for natural gas-fired electricity generation to supply the plant, with gas-powered mechanical drives to run the liquefaction refrigeration compressors. Powering LNG development has been controversial, with aboriginal groups in the region opposed to projects that pollute the air and leave obsolete infrastructure after gas production ends. The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency must decide if a federal assessment of the project is needed, or if a

B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark speaks in Kitimat during a campaign swing Tuesday, emphasizing plans to develop liquefied natural gas exports from the North Coast. provincial permit is sufficient. Prince Rupert LNG’s project description calls for a two-phase development, with the first of two LNG trains that would fill three to four ships per week. A third train would be added later, bringing output up to five to six LNG tankers per week.

Vote on electoral reform Voters have a chance to test drive different voting systems to see

how they might change the outcome of Tuesday’s provincial election. A UBC research project at votesbc.org will let voters anonymously cast ballots online using three different systems – the current firstpast-the-post system, proportional representation and the single transferable vote. “Our goal is to get as many B.C. voters to cast their vote in the way many others already do around the world,” said UBC researcher Allan Craigie.

The site’s test results won’t affect the real election outcome, but the project team thinks it could revive debate on options for electoral change in B.C. The last time reform was considered was in a failed 2009 referendum on switching B.C. provincial elections to the single transferable vote. “We never actually got the chance to try it out,” Craigie said. “So wouldn’t it be interesting to see what effect it would have in 2013, even if there are no electoral consequences? It will give voters an understanding of how all these systems would work.” Those who register at the votesbc.org site between now and May 14 can “vote” there using the three systems as if it were the real election, using the same list of local candidates now on the ballot. Organizers will tabulate results and post them online – right down to the riding level – a few days after the May 14 election.

End of June target for ruling after May public meetings by J eff Nagel Black Press

Stung by public opposition to coal exports, Port Metro Vancouver officials are pledging more consultation and open houses next month over a contentious plan to build a new coal terminal at Fraser Surrey Docks. But a decision could then be made swiftly, according to Duncan Wilson, the port’s vice-president of corporate social responsibility. “If things go relatively well and we’re confident issues within our purview are adequately ad-

dressed, then I think we could probably see a decision before the end of June,” he said. The two open houses on May 23 and 25 will respond to public concerns raised to date, present measures to address impacts and gather more feedback. “There is a lot of coal that is already handled in this port and it’s handled in an environmentally sustainable way,” port planning director Jim Crandles said. “There is no doubt that you can do it.” Councils in Vancouver and New Westminster have opposed the new coal terminal, while Delta, Surrey and White Rock councils have expressed concerns and sought more information.

Metro Vancouver directors have also registered concerns about air quality impacts. Port staff are working to answer all the questions. Wilson hopes proponent Fraser Surrey Docks will be able to show acceptable ways to address issues like coal dust escape, more trains, increased noise and diesel particulate. Coal now moves mainly via the BNSF railway to Westshore Terminal at Deltaport. Nearly 33 million tonnes of coal moved in the region last year, most of it B.C.-mined steelmaking coal, and the port’s coal-handling capacity is 51.5 million tonnes. So Wilson said he was surprised Fraser Surrey Docks’ proposal for a ter-

minal handling just four million tonnes – bringing one more coal train each day –  got so much attention. It’s become a huge cause for climate change activists, who say most fossil fuels must be kept in the ground to avoid runaway global warming. But local concerns are the only possible grounds to reject such a project, Wilson said, not the carbon emissions that will result when the U.S.mined thermal coal is burned in Asia. “We cannot turn down a project on that basis,” he said. “The market decides what is going to be traded.” Although the Fraser Surrey Docks terminal would be expandable to eight million tonnes, Wilson stressed that would require a separate application. Critics assume it will be a mere formality. Wilson rejects suggestions the port acts as a rubberstamp for its terminal partners, contending it is a fair and rigorous regulator running exemplary public consultations. Opponents, however, see a biased agency overseeing an opaque process that they do not trust. “Maybe they’ve never been challenged before and never had to justify what they do,” said anticoal activist Kevin Washbrook. He wants public hearings into the new coal terminal, with expert witnesses on health and climate change, not open houses that he said are designed to neutralize dissent. “The only people in favour of this are the port authority, Fraser Surrey Docks and the coal industry,” Washbrook said. The port is also in talks with the region’s health authorities, but port officials say that’s mainly around a longer-term approach to project reviews that could affect human health. Fraser and Vancouver Coastal medical health officers aren’t expected to give input on the merits of the Surrey coal terminal. Billions of infrastructure dollars have been spent on projects like the Roberts Bank rail overpasses and South Fraser Perimeter Road to help speed cargo through the region. Wilson said the hostility to the coal terminal expansions – one handling steel-making coal in North Vancouver is already approved – may signal awakening public unrest over port expansion in general.

Vote for More Buses Now

in the May 14 provincial election!

don’t miss your bus this election! Vote for better public transit. Or feeling more like a sardine than a bus rider?

So we have 50% more residents per bus than we used to. No wonder you can’t get on.

Or unable to even find adequate bus service in your community or at night?

Metro Vancouver’s Livable Region Strategic Plan called for 1900 buses in service by 2006.

There’s a clear answer – in the May 14 provincial election, vote for better public transit by voting for More Buses Now!

The problem is that we are at least 500 buses short.

Tired of missing your bus, again and again?

Metro Vancouver bus drivers, mechanics, SeaBus, maintenance and other staff share your frustration with lack of adequate public transit service provided by TransLink and the Coast Mountain Bus Company. That means pass-ups, overcrowding, infrequent service and a lack of buses and SkyTrain hours late at night. That answer could be found on May 14 because the provincial government is responsible for TransLink and public transit! What’s wrong with our bus system? We have only 1400 buses operating in Metro Vancouver – just one bus for every 1800 residents. But 20 years ago we had one bus for every 1200 residents, like Toronto and Montreal have today.

VancouVer is running behind Only 26% of our bus routes have 10 minute service or better.

VANCOUVER

The BC Liberals recognized the problem in 2008 and pledged to double the number of buses by 2020. But those promises have been broken so far and no significant improvements in service have been made in Metro Vancouver. In fact, because the province refuses to provide ways for sustainable funding to meet public transit demand, bus and SkyTrain service is actually worse than four years ago. Right now TransLink is cutting bus service and routes because it lacks enough funding – that’s bad for riders, bad for the environment and means more traffic congestion for drivers. The BC New Democrats say they will re-direct millions in carbon tax revenue to increase funding for public transit and improve service as a practical response to climate change. The choice is yours – but the results for public transit over the last 12 years under the BC Liberals is clear – there are no more buses. Ask your candidates what their position is – and tell them you are voting for More Buses Now! And you can send all BC political parties a clear message by email and find more information at:

Toronto and Montreal are way ahead of us.

THE NEWS


www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Friday, May 10, 2013 -- 31

We are not richer than we think I n 2008, an Ipsos Reid poll showed that 51 per cent of all Canadians expected to be fully retired by the age of 66.  In 2011, the same poll showed the number had dropped to 27 per cent.  That’s a big shift in a short time and is the result, I believe, of several factors. First, the financial crisis of 2008 hit people hard, both financially and in terms of confidence in the future. As interest rates dropped to next to nothing, and stock markets became depressed, then volatile, many people came to the realization that if they had done any financial planning based on an average return of five to eight per cent a year, those plans were out the window. Suddenly, the money they had saved that would generate enough income to supplement the Canada Pension Plan, or a private pension plan, just didn’t seem to be enough. Second, the financial crisis awakened a lot of people who had never really spent any time thinking about finances at all. Many looked in their bank accounts and realized that they had not saved much. In fact, according to an HSBC survey, 47 per cent of Canadians between the ages of 55-64 have not saved anything for retirement. Almost a quarter of that population is currently carrying debt, usually for a home mortgage, but not always. Third, as we’ve watched citizens march in the streets of Greece, Spain, Cypress, Italy and Portugal,

we have also been put on notice that what a government says and what a government can do might be two different things.  It’s one thing to promise As we age retirement benefits and Graham Hookey another to deliver when an economy falls flat or the number of recipients of such benefits is greater than those able to pay into the plan to support it. Past governments have laid a huge liability on the shoulders of the younger generation by making promises they must keep to the older generation. Suddenly, they are not sure those promises are viable. Finally, as more Canadians have gotten close to the retirement age, they have decided they don’t want to retire, even if they might have some savings. Half of those with savings do not believe their money will last more than 10 years, and in their early 60s, they feel good and understand that their retirement years might last well into their 80s and 90s. What’s the rush to retire and run out of cash at a time when it’s impossible to create new income? To shuffle problems further down the line, mandatory retirement ages are pretty much extinct

and the age of full pension benefits is becoming a moving target as it slides higher. Meanwhile, there is a generation of student-debt-ridden young people filling part-time jobs with no benefits, waiting for any openings in the real job market. Many of them are well educated and tech savvy and might well be more productive than their parents and grandparents who are still at the workplace, but unless they strike out on their own, carrying even more debt to start their own businesses, opportunities are limited. There are two main thrusts needed to reduce the challenges First, we have to expect less from others and expect more from ourselves.  In the 1980s, we saved, on average, almost 20 per cent a year.  Now we spend, on average, more than we make, individually and as a country.  That’s a recipe for personal and national chaos. The second is we need to invest in young people. Whether the older generation semi-retires to make more openings, or financial institutions create cheaper venturecapital options or relieve student debt, we have to get young people into the productive workforce and generating an economy that can support the elderly when they can no longer support themselves. We are not richer than we think.   Graham Hookey writes on education, parenting and eldercare (ghookey@yahoo.com).

RUN The value of a mother Ac t s of Fait h by Brad Warner

I was reading a few blogs and articles about Mother’s Day recently. One interesting question: “How much is your mom worth?” Apparently, according to Insure. com, the take-home pay an average mother could earn for doing all the work she does around the home is about $60,000 a year. This incredible sum is what the average that mom would earn if she was paid an hourly wage for doing everything that she does – from driving, to laundry, to cleaning, to cooking, and so on. This total doesn’t include any wages that mom might earn for any and all paid work she does outside the home. That’s amazing, isn’t it? How much is your mom worth?

In our culture, Mother’s Day typically includes some kind of small family celebration with gifts for mom, or your wife, or perhaps for grandmother. We express our gratitude towards our moms and mother figures on Mother’s Day. And that’s a good thing in our culture. When you ride in an airplane, the flight attendant will inevitably say, “In the case of a sudden change in cabin pressure, the oxygen masks will drop. To start the flow of oxygen, pull the mask towards you. Please make sure to put your mask on first. Then you can help your children or any other passengers.” I asked a flight attendant why they said that. She explained that a mother’s first instinct is to sacrifice herself and protect her children first. That’s what mothers do. I know the boys and I are plan-

To help minimise impacts, the project has been divided into two phases: Phase 1: 272nd Street to Stave Falls Dam •

May 21, 2013 to October 31, 2013

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Phase 2: 232nd Street to 272nd Street •

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. while crews work from 240th Street to 272nd Street

Multiple crews will work concurrently in multiple locations along Dewdney Trunk Road as they replace several utility poles and upgrade electrical equipment. This work will require flaggers to direct vehicles around the bucket trucks, which may cause temporary traffic delays. BC Hydro recognizes the inconvenience this work may cause and we will strive to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible. If you have any questions or would like more information about this project, please contact BC Hydro at 1 866 647 3334. 3869

VISTAS

ning on doing something for mom (my wife). I hope that she will appreciate it. And I always try to honour my mom in a special way at this time as well. Honouring mothers is something that we should encourage both in our culture and in our families. In the Bible, the fifth of the 10 Commandments is Exodus 20:12. It says this quite simply: “Honour ... your mother.” There are many ways we can honour our moms. I encourage you to find out what your mom or wife or grandmother (or other mother figure) appreciates and then intentionally express your appreciation in a way that she loves. And just don’t do it once a year. Make it a habit. Build some family traditions. Tradition can be a very powerful force for good and for evil. Build some healthy traditions that honour your mom.

Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo to take place on May 16

GVHBA to hold renovation seminar The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association will hold its popular Ask a Pro Renovation Seminar + Expo on May 16 at the Croatian Cultural Centre in Vancouver. “Home renovation continues to be popular and there is no shortage of fly-by-night operators taking advantage of trusting homeowners,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Dealing in the cash-only underground economy to avoid tax, rather than working with a professional renovator, exposes homeowners to liability issues and close scrutiny from municipal bylaw officials, provincial safety authorities and others.” Participants will learn about the

stages of the renovation process, including finding a renovator, permits and design. Presenters include renovators, a lawyer, a finance expert and a municipal building official. The exhibition area will be open between 5:30 and 7:30 to allow homeowners to speak with the more than 30 experts in attendance beforehand, and then the seminar will follow from 7:30 to 9. Admission is free, but homeowners are asked to pre-register and bring a food item for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. To register, visit www.gvhba.org, email signmeup@ gvhba.org or call 778-565-4288.

Chilliwack retirement living

Retire in style at Englewood Courtyard By Kerry Vital

Resort-style retirement living has come to Chilliwack at Englewood Courtyard. With amenities right on-site and elegant homes that are perfect for downsizers, it’s not hard to see why the project is already so popular. “We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen. “This is the place you’re looking for if you want a sense of community. You don’t always see that anymore.” Englewood Courtyard is part of a master-planned community just for adults over the age of 45 called Englewood Village. Residents will find leisure activities, shopping, entertainment and restaurants close by; outdoor activities are particularly easy to find at Englewood Courtyard, with its close proximity to Cultus Lake and Chilliwack Lake. Among the amenities on-site is a parking lot for RVs and Club Englewood, a 2,500 square-foot clubhouse with an exercise area, social lounge, kitchen, reflecting pond and a spa. You can also enjoy a patio barbecue area, bocce courts, community garden and a dog park, Virtanen says.

We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen.

Chilliwack has long been a popular place for Lower Mainland retirees due to its lower real estate prices, beautiful scenery and relaxing atmosphere, so it comes as no surprise that buyers have been very interested in purchasing at Englewood Courtyard. Virtanen notes that she often hears buyers saying the good value, size of the homes and great design are the reasons they are interested in the project, along with the simply amazing views of the local mountains and rural surroundings. The first phase is currently on sale, with 40 one- and two-bedroom condominium residences ranging from 879 to 1,400 square feet in a variety of floorplans. This phase of Englewood Courtyard will be the first five-storey wood frame building in Chilliwack, and will be followed by two four-storey

buildings in the later phases. Those concerned about sound travelling between the condos will find peace of mind in knowing that there will be plenty of sound reduction between each home. The residences themselves are spacious and open, and are built with West Coast-style architecture that includes glass railings and plenty of windows to let the light pour in. Each home features nine to 12-foot vaulted ceilings, laminate flooring, maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite countertops and a gas fireplace, among other beautiful features. Airconditioning for those hot summer months is also included, along with underground parking for your convenience. The condos will be built using SAFERhome standards that allow you to age-in-place, so you won’t have to worry about moving again in your golden years. If you’re in the mood for a little bit of the outdoors, you can relax on your own covered balcony or private terrace. Homes at Englewood Courtyard start at $184,900. For more information, visit www.englewoodcourtyard.ca, call 604-824-8232, or visit the presentation centre at 45750 Keith Wilson Road, Chilliwack. The presentation centre is open between 12 and 4 every day.

Submitted photos

The homes at Englewood Courtyard feature beautiful views over Chilliwack, along with gourmet kitchens, covered balconies or patios, spacious floorplans and plenty of natural light.

MAPLE RIDGE • PITT MEADOWS

Growing your own perfect pot of tea P

ersonally, I am more of a coffee guy, and when I want a perfect cup of ‘Joe,’ it’s usually as simple as freshly ground quality beans, a French Press and some boiling water. Tea, on the other hand, can be such a crap shoot, as you never know if those blends of dried Gardening Camellia sinensis leaves or herbs in the paper sac Mike Lascelle are ever going to amount to much on the palate. And when you consider how long those tea bags have been sitting in your cupboard, or on the grocery store shelf, at the wholesale supplier’s warehouse or the grower’s storage facility – it’s not difficult to surmise that your tea herbs are probably months old and have lost much of their true flavor. So why not grow your own? You will definitely reap a fresher cup of tea and most of the herbs, like mint and lemon balm, are incredibly easy to cultivate. Beyond that, the real benefits are that you control such unwanteds as pesticide residues, heavy metals (from contaminated soils) and food coloring. So without further ado, here are your most common herbal tea options: • Chamomile – there are essentially two species of chamomile, the perennial Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile or Anthemis nobilis) and the annual German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla). Teas made from fresh or dried flowerheads will aid insomnia and even help with arthritis

than table sugar, and without all the calories. It can be used dried or fresh to sweeten teas and is a good choice for diabetics. Plant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. • Mint – there has been an explosion of mint cultivars in recent years, although the two most common are Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) and Spearmint (Mentha spicata). All are perennial in nature and are quite invasive, so be sure to give them their own space. Mike Lascelle is a local nursery manager and gardening author (hebe_acer@hotmail.com).

Other cultivars

A truly fresh pot of sweet lemon mint tea. symptoms. • Lemon balm – the lemony-scented foliage of Melissa officinalis works well in both hot and cold teas, with the added benefits of calming upset stomachs and asthma. Like mint (which is related), lemon balm is quite invasive and should be grown in its own pot or garden section. Variegated and gold-leaved forms are also available. • Beebalm – the leaves of Oswego tea, or Monarda didyma, have long been used as a pioneer beverage and it can be substituted for Bergamot orange (Citrus bergamia) as an Earl

grey tea flavouring. This perennial is a common ornamental and often features bright red flowers that attract hummingbirds. • Lemon verbena – the dried or fresh leaves of Aloysia triphylla make a tasty lemon tea that is popular in Spain and Portugal. Some people combine it with mint to make a hot tea that is sweetened with honey. Aids in weight loss, sleep disorders and digestive problems. Frost-tender. • Sugar plant - Stevia rebaudiana is a frost-tender native of Paraguay whose leaves produce a sweetener 200-300 times sweeter

• Ginger – A gold variegated mint with overtones of ginger flavor. • Mojito – A strong mint hybrid from Cuba and a mojito essential. • Swiss – A peppermint with a lighter, refreshing flavour. • Orange – Makes a tasty cold beverage with orange juice and tea. • Kentucky colonel – A cross of apple and spearmint, a key ingredient of the mint julep. • Sweet lemon – A fruity mint for tea, bred from apple and lime mint. • Chocolate – A true chocolate scent, like a Peppermint Patty. • Apple – A tall growing mint with green applescented foliage. • Candy – A peppermint with mouth-watering candy-flavored leaves. • Moroccan – Used with green tea and sugar to create Moroccan tea.

Preventing soccer injuries S

occer is the most popular game in the world, and the fastest growing team sport in North America, with more than 40 million participants. But with high rates of participation comes increased numbers of injuries. When players are injured, it’s frustrating for the athlete, and the team loses the player for practice and games. The player may also be more prone to a future injury at the same site. If coaches, players and parents better understand some of the root causes, influences and mechanisms for injury, and may be able to put in place better strategies and injury prevention programs to combat the occurrence of disabling injuries. A recent analysis of the scientific literature published in an NSCA journal looked at all the pertinent studies regarding soccer injuries for players six to 16 years old and found some interesting trends, some of which may seem quite surprising. They looked at many variables, from gender, age, physical maturation, skill level, player position, injury site and severity. As one may expect, soccer injuries occur more frequently in games as opposed to practices since the speed of play is quicker and players may tend to try to over-ride their fatigue during games, making them vulnerable to injury. The severity of injury is also greater in game situations. However, a surprising fact is that when lowerlevel (non-elite) players are compared to higher skilled (elite) players, the non-elite players had not only a higher rate of injury, but greater severity of injuries. This may seem surprising since we assume that elite play involves greater speeds, forces and more opportunity for body contact. The authors theorize, however, that elite, experienced players could recognize and avoid injury-causing situations and it also may be that they also are better prepared to brace for contact or have a greater ability to fall or roll or slide from contact. Another reason that elite players suffered fewer injuries is because they generally have a longer pre-season and greater number of practice and train-

ing sessions in order to increase strength, endurance and coordination. Having sufficient warm-up and stretching periods correlates with lower incidence of injury, and non-elite players may not take the time or effort to fully complete warm-ups and stretching periods. Interestingly, defenders and mid-fielders are injured more often than strikers and goalkeepers. Girls have a higher incidence of injury than boys. Strains (muscle tears) accounted for 24 per cent of all injuries, while sprains (ligament injury) accounts for 31 per cent, and contusions at 20 per cent. The lower limbs were the cause of 70 per cent of all soccer injuries, and the majority of injuries (60 per cent) occur from contact situations, which emphasizes the importance of the player learning the proper
