Heated debate over hospital parking Letter from district lawyer suggests there are no easy answers by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

A letter from a lawyer for the District of Maple Ridge says it can’t do anything about pay parking at Ridge Meadows Hospital, but council isn’t done with the issue yet. After heated debate Monday, Coun. Cheryl Ashlie is going to raise the topic the next time mayors and councillors meet with Fraser Health.

But council rejected a move by Coun. Corisa Bell to have all of council meet with Fraser Health, the Minister of Health Terry Lake, local MLAs Doug Bing and Marc Dalton, along with MP Randy Kamp and continue to investigate whether Maple Ridge can ban pay parking at Bell the hospital. “We asked for a legal opinion and we got it. Now we’re trying to figure it out whether we’re quasi lawyers,” said Coun. Al

They were ticketed despite having parking passes issued by the Fraser Health facility. A five-page letter from the district’s lawyer concludes, the only way the district can regulate parking fees at the hospital is if a public health bylaw is adopted under the Community Charter, with the OK of the Ministry of Health. But lawyer Gregg Cockrill doubts the minister would approve that. see Parking, p4

Nurse part of mission of Mercy S tor y by Neil Corbett

A

teenager had been married at the age of 13. She was with child that same year. She had a fourday labour, with nobody to help deliver. The baby was stillborn, and she was left disabled, childless and incontinent. Her husband abandoned her. A Guinean man had been captured by an armed rebel group. They put a lock into his face – going up his nose, through the roof of his mouth, and out his mouth. He got free of his captors, but was left maimed and unable to breath. A little girl had fallen in a cooking fire when she was an infant. Her mother couldn’t afford a hospital stay, so her burned back had to heal at home. Mom knew the infant had to move her arm so it would heal properly, but making her move it caused too much agony in the little girl, and there was no pain medication. The burns healed, but left a web of scar tissue that fused her upper arm to her back, leaving her unable to raise the arm. Those are just three of the people who were helped by the world’s largest charity hospital ship, Africa Mercy, and by a nurse who grew up in Maple Ridge. Nicole Moen is a 2006 graduate of Maple Ridge secondary, got her nursing degree at Douglas College, and has been a registered nurse for two years. From Jan. 27 to May 15, she worked on a Mercy ship in Conakry, Guinea. She said the burn victim was Jaka, “one of my favourite little girls.” Jaka was just three when she was burned on the back and arm by the open fire, and she healed on the floor of the hut, her mother fanning her injury to try and keep it cool. Jaka arrived on the ship at the age of seven. The arm became greatly immobilized. Over surgery and two months of treatment on the ship, skin from her thigh was grafted onto her armpit, giving her use of the arm. “She was a shy little girl, but she totally opened up, and taught me her little songs. There was lots of laughing and hugs,” remembers Moen. “The last time I saw her she was leaving he ship, carrying all her belongings balanced on her head.” The man who was captured by rebels was Morla, a businessman, had his nose “crushed away” by the lock in his face. While he was afflicted with a life-changing injury, she said he was still a grateful man, and the Mercy ship at least ensured it would not be life-threatening.

Since 2003, Mercy Ships surgeons have performed more than 2,880 procedures to correct obstetric fistula and related issues on 2,490 patients on board hospital ships in Africa. “Nicole look, I can actually breath through my nose,” she remembers him saying. Such plastic surgeries were the focus of the last two months of the ship’s fourmonth stay in Africa. The first two months were spent treating

Usually the result of obstructed labor coupled with a lack of skilled medical care, obstetric fistula most often leads to permanent incontinence. More than 90 per cent of African women affected by obstetric fistula are rejected from their husbands and society due to their childlessness. They become social outcasts, isolated from family, friends, village and religious life. They work alone, eat alone, and are not allowed to cook for anyone else. They sleep in separate huts and often end up on the streets, begging for their survival. Fistula repair and healing can restore women to their families and societies. Since 2003, Mercy Ships surgeons have performed more than 2,880 procedures to correct obstetric fistula and related issues on 2,490 patients on board hospital ships in Africa. Moen worked with many of these women who were restored to health. “They have a possibility of a life and to be respected in their culture,” she said. Cataract surgeries are common – procedures deemed routine in the developed world to restore people’s vision. Moen saw

skinny babies come on board the ship to have cleft palates repaired, and leave chubby and healthy. There is also a dental surgery associated with Africa Mercy, and staff go on land to see patients. Working on the ship is giving people in need their ultimate gift. She said “love the world” is the simple operational model that the organization pursues – give people what they need. They will dock in a country for six to 10 months at a time, with a ship that has all the resources necessary, from a CT scanner to surgeries. The Africa Mercy is operated by a nonprofit organization and staffed by volunteers from around the world. Canadians are the third most common volunteers on the ship, behind Americans and Dutch, but Koreans, Australians and people from around the world volunteer. “It’s addictive,” said Moen. “You want to quit your job and go.” That is impossible, because even though they are working volunteers, the Mercy Ship staff have to pay their own expenses – it cost Moen $700 per month to be involved.

Morla, a Guinean man, underwent successful surgery after an armed rebel group captured him and put a lock into his face.

She said there opportunities for many trades and professions, as electricians, plumbers and dietitians are all needed on board. Of the 450 people who live on the hospital ship, roughly half are medical personnel. Moen has been given a one-year leave of absence from working at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, so she will return to work there, but the Mercy Ship will be in her thoughts. “When I can organize it, I’m going to go back.” The Africa Mercy is scheduled to dock in Point Noise, in the Republic of Congo, for 10 months beginning in August.

Car Care with Cyril Barry

GASOLINE OR DIESEL

Way back in 1992 I noticed a trend with the domestic vehicle manufacturers towards the marketing of diesel as an alternative engine in some of their pickup and work van models. As a repair shop owner you have to keep up or you fall behind, so we educated our technicians and equipped ourselves for servicing these new diesel powered vehicles. If you’re buying a new or used truck or van for work or pleasure, you now have a choice between the two major fuels for powering your next set of wheels. There are some distinct advantages and disadvantages to both fuels, dependent upon vehicle usage. The advantages of a diesel powered vehicle that most people are aware of, is power for pulling or carrying heavy loads along with extended fuel mileage. Another added benefit is that diesel vehicles are heavier so they have to be built stronger which means that your drive-line is capable of hauling heavier loads longer distances. Diesel engines are designed for torque and not for speed, the place you will notice this most is on a long hill while pulling or hauling a load. With a gas powered truck you will loose power and have to shift down a gear or two to maintain the torque required to climb to the top of the long hill. With the diesel powered truck you will not notice that much loss of torque while climbing and will probably make it up to the top of the hill without missing a beat. The advantage to the gasoline powered truck will be most evident when travelling on flat ground and increasing speed or passing. A gas engine has a much wider rev band and will increase speed quicker at midrange to top end and maintain a much higher overall speed. The twin truck with a diesel power plant is slower to accelerate and is limited in top speed by the narrow rev band of a diesel engine. From a maintenance point of view the diesel engine will run much longer and in most cases require less fuel. In no way, shape or form is a diesel powered truck less expensive to maintain than its gasoline cousin. While you may go longer between repairs, they are usually much more expensive to repair when it comes to parts costs. What most rookie diesel owners are unaware of is the rest of the vehicle is built heavier, which in turn costs more to fix. Items like radiators, water pumps, exhaust system and brake and front end parts are all much more expensive. If your going to work your vehicle hard all day everyday and most weekends, then by all means buy a diesel. If you’re going to haul a camper or trailer once a year, my advice to you is buy a gas powered truck, you’ll be happier in the long run. Remember to clean off your head lights whenever you buy gas or diesel, you’ll see much better at night.

Notice of Public Hearing TAKE NOTICE THAT a Public Hearing will be held in the Council Chamber of the Municipal Hall, 11995 Haney Place, Maple Ridge, North-East corner entrance, at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 18, 2013 to consider the following bylaw: 2012-077-RZ MAPLE RIDGE ZONE AMENDING BYLAW NO. 6941-2012 LEGAL: Lot B, District Lot 278, Group 1, New Westminster District, Plan 76445 LOCATION: 11935 - 207 Street FROM: CD-3-87 (Service Commercial, Bank or Credit Union) and CS-1 (Service Commercial) TO: C-2 (Community Commercial) PURPOSE: To accommodate a new Langley Farm Market.

‘Can we move on?’ Parking from front

The letter also says the district could amend its zoning bylaw, making the hospital zone conditional upon it providing free parking. But that could be challenged in court and Fraser Health could simply allow pay parking. Mayor Ernie Daykin pointed out that the second line of the letter says it’s doubtful anything can be done. “But did you read the whole report?” asked Bell. “No, I didn’t,” Daykin said sarcastically, adding later he had read the report. Daykin said if pay parking is removed, it could lead to a congested parking lot and for Fraser Health to ask Maple Ridge to make up the difference in lost revenue. Bell, though, wanted a report from the bylaws department on the history of parking enforcement in the hospital area and how Fraser Health complies with Maple Ridge’s off-street parking policy. There’s more discussion to be had, she added, and if council doesn’t, “we’ll have done a real good job of avoiding the conversation altogether.” Ashlie raised a “point of order,” saying Bell wasn’t staying on topic to receive the report and was criticizing councillors for their response. “I do not want to spend more staff time on an issue that does not fall under our jurisdiction,” added Coun. Judy Dueck, who moved the report be received as information. Bell supported that, but still wanted a meeting involving both MLAs, Kamp, Fraser Health and the ministry, with all of council involved. Ashlie, though, raised another point of order, asking the mayor to in-

tervene, claiming Bell implied that she wouldn’t be able to represent council’s wishes to Fraser Health. It’s clear that pay parking lies within Fraser Health jurisdiction, so council is spending time on the wrong issue, Ashlie added later. “If we want to have a relationship with Fraser Health, we need to utilize that table and give them the courtesy of that discussion at that before we jump to the Ministry of Health.” Daykin said Fraser Health knows about the issue and that Ashlie will report back to council, which could lead to another decision. Bell still wanted to know why council didn’t ask for that before. It has been raised previously, though, but Ashlie said council wanted a legal opinion. “So can we call the question and move on?” Under Sec. 906 of the Local Government Act, the district could also argue that Fraser Health is not providing free parking in its parking lot, as an alternative to on-street parking. Cockerill notes in one case, under B.C.’s Local Government Act and the Ontario Planning Act, there could be a “strong argument” to restrict pay parking in lots that are required for condos or hospitals. Then he argues most of the parking stalls in the lot were probably created before Maple Ridge’s bylaw came into effect. Bell said if the hospital is considered a non-profit entity, it should be possible to regulate parking and wanted to find out more, and if free parking isn’t the answer, “what else can we collectively do to make the overall situation better?”

‘We don’t need 4th fire hall’ Council borrowing $6 million for project in Albion by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Maple Ridge council has OK’d a bylaw that will allow it to start work on Fire Hall No. 4 by borrowing $6 million. The Tuesday decision came despite the objections of Coun. Corisa Bell, who says the project and the money should be reviewed, after initially being approved in 2008. “Just because something was approved five years ago, or 10 years ago, does not mean today that we should go ahead with it. Just because it’s something we’ve been waiting for, doesn’t mean it’s something we need to have right now,” Bell said Wednesday. Maple Ridge just approved about two new fire trucks, she pointed out. And even though the new fire hall, on 112th Avenue in Albion, is part of the financial plan and fire master plan, its capital and operating costs will still affect municipal finances during tough times. Bell said residents are telling her, what does it matter if there’s a new fire hall, if they can’t afford a house. Mayor Ernie Daykin said the fire hall has been planned for the past decade and the bylaw only secures the funding. The building project itself still needs council approval. The public approved the borrowing in 2008, and if a specific borrowing bylaw isn’t OK’d this year, a new referendum would be required. “It’s been in the works for over 10 years.” Maple Ridge will borrow the $6 million from the Municipal Finance Authority, while the payments would come out of the fire department capital acquisition reserve. “It’s like a pre-approved mortgage,” Daykin said, and won’t affect property tax rates. “It boils down to response time.” Without a fire hall in the area, it could take longer for fire trucks to reach emergencies. More staff could be required for Fire Hall No. 1 to achieve desired response times. The fire department presented an update to council earlier this year. Daykin recently ex-

plained to a resident that property taxes pay for emergency services, which consume the largest part of the district’s budget. Those taxes are “paying for services that I hope you’ll never need. “I hope you never have a fire and the fire department has to respond, or you get broken into … and you need our police department. I hope you never need those. But the reality is they’re a big part of the budget. “I would far rather explain we’re investing these resources … to be ready because if we’re not ready and disaster hits, you’re sure going to be choked, because we hadn’t planned for it.” Maple Ridge spent $30 million on fire and police in 2012, the largest expense item. Fire Chief Peter Grootendorst told council in December that when six new firefighters are hired in the next two years, the department will have reached its master plan goal of 54 full-timers, bolstered by about 60 to 65 part-time, paid-oncall firefighters. Grootendorst said that response times have now reached 80 per cent, meaning firefighters get to a call within seven minutes of the alarm, 80 per cent of the time. In 2003, prior to moving to full-time/parttime force, when the department relied mainly on paid on-call firefighters, the ratio was only 30 per cent. Fire department figures show that Maple

Ridge is third lowest in the region in terms of cost per capita, ringing in at $128 versus $61 for Pitt Meadows, which has only a paid-on-call staff. Bell acknowledges fire safety is always a worry and people’s lives are at stake. “How many fires have we had in the Cottonwood area in the last year or two years?” Is the new sprinkler bylaw, requiring them for all new houses, improving safety, she asked. She wanted updated information from the fire department and wanted to know what is the risk of not building an Albion fire hall? “Where is the data showing that this amount of money being spent at this point time is the best decision? “None of that came with the report. We had a conversation on it on Monday and then the next night, we’re deciding on it. “We’re just going to rubber stamp another thing and send it through.” Bell said the fire department gives council updates, but all the information should be in a staff report. “We didn’t even get the history of this,” she said. “If this is so important and valuable to the district … we should inform our councillors as to what’s going on and why the decision is being made and not just give us a piece of paper that approves borrowing on behalf of taxpayers,

Responding Will more people die in diastrous fires if Fire Hall No. 4 is not built? Fire chief Peter Grootendorst doesn’t want to get into that exercise. You can’t quantify what happens if you don’t put in the fire hall, he said. There’s no way to make those calculations. Grootendorst says the hall is in the fire master plan, and the arguements made when that was written in 2004 are still valid. The overall goal for the Maple Ridge Fire Department is to respond to a fire within seven minutes of callout, 90 per cent of the time. “If we don’t build that hall, we’ll likely never be able to achieve that standard. What will likely happen is the standard we currently have will diminish.” Currently, firefighters get to 80 per cent of the calls within seven minutes. Grootendorst said the hall isn’t just to serve the Albion area. “As traffic patterns get busier and busier … and we start to get more calls out in the area that 80 per cent we have now, could get lower and lower. “It gives more response capability for the entire district, not just that one little area. “Things haven’t changed from when the plan was originally put together in my mind.”

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Crossing the line The Quebec Soccer Federation is refusing to lift its ban on Sikh religious headwear – patkas, keskis and turbans. Because of that, the Canadian Soccer Association suspended the provincial body from the national organization, until the ban is overturned. If the suspension lasts long enough, Quebec teams could be blocked from participating in national championships. Astonishingly, Quebec Premier Pauline Marois supports the turban ban, suggesting the provincial soccer federation has the right to make up its own rules. That’s fine, then go play in your “own backyards.” That is what the Quebec federation is saying to players affected by the ban, ostracizing them for what amounts to racial discrimination. We cannot think of one distinct advantage wearing a turban – or patkas or keskis – would give a player on the soccer pitch, nor any safety concern. Please clarify any. Turbans are soft. If anything, they would deaden a header. Sikh children around the world play soccer. Their headwear has never been a safety concern. It’s not like riding a motorcycle, for which, an Ontario court ruled in 2008, Sikhs must wear a helmet. But in B.C., they don’t have to. In 1990, the federal government removed a ban preventing Sikhs in the RCMP from wearing turbans. Because, why wouldn’t they be allowed to? So why now, 33 years later, is this an issue again? And how is it possible the leader of a province that has fought since confederation to preserve its cultural identity would support such an attack on that of another? It’s the height of hypocrisy. As premier, surely Ms. Marois must understand that while provinces are responsible for services such as policing, the federal government makes the laws. Quebec is no more autonomous than the Canadian Soccer Federation is to FIFA, which has no specific rules regarding such headgear. It is OK to make up rules of play. But when one crosses the line, such as the ban on religious headwear, someone must intervene. That is why governing bodies exist, to ensure the integrity of the game and protect the players, in this case, from such prejudice. – The News

In business of representing Ridge A

ccording to Jim Rule, chief administrative officer for Maple Ridge, the problem of hospital parking is not a municipal issue because, “We are not in the hospital business.” This might possibly be the most insulting and biggest nonsense Sidewinder Sandy Macdougall ever uttered by a municipal official in the history of Maple Ridge. Of course the municipality is not in the hospital business. But it should be in the business of properly representing the interests of Maple Ridge residents before regional boards and other jurisdictions, something that has been woefully inadequate for several years. Hospital parking is just the most current example of poor representation on regional issues. People being paid more than $250,000 yearly out of the public purse probably have a difficult time identifying with others who are struggling to make ends meet. And when it comes to pay parking at the hospital, they don’t recognize the impact on pensioners and others on low incomes of having to cope with the illness of loved ones and the unjustifiably high parking rates. The municipality’s own structured underground parking facility apparently

uestion of the week:

produces a profit or breaks even with free parking for the first hour and 75 cents for the second hour. And it is obvious that the structured parking facility is more costly to construct and maintain, but can and does operate with such low rates. If the mayor and council members don’t represent the interests of local residents, who does? Coun. Judy Dueck was recently upset because Coun. Corisa Bell raised the issue of hospital parking without advance notice, even though the topic has been high profile for weeks, or months. It almost seems that Ms. Dueck and others can’t discuss anything at public council meetings without staff reports and investigations, which in turn provide sufficient time to deny whatever request is before council. Although Ridge Meadows Hospital is located in Maple Ridge and purports to serve the medical needs of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows residents, in reality, the ridiculously high parking rates serve only the needs of the contracted parking patrol company. It would seem that Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows have no direct input into the policies of the Fraser Regional Health Authority, the decision making board which sets the parking rates. While Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows councils can’t change the parking rates, collectively, council and senior staff members have a moral obligation to represent the best interests of all local residents, and that should include con-

sideration for affordable parking rates for hospital volunteers and visitors, many of whom are already enduring heartache and agony over illness and injuries of their loved ones and family members. It’s high time that someone stood up and let their voice be heard in opposition to the tyranny of uncaring, unfeeling bureaucracies whose only apparent interest is their own sphere of activity.

“It’s high time that someone stood up and let their voice be heard in opposition to the tyranny of uncaring, unfeeling bureaucracies whose only apparent interest is their own sphere of activity.” Ms. Bell is leading the way on Maple Ridge council in opposing the high parking fees at Ridge Meadows Hospital. And, if quoted accurately, Coun. Al Hogarth is the only other council member willing to step forward. Other council members and senior staff are showing shameful neglect of their moral obligations to local residents. Sandy Macdougall is a retired journalist and former district councillor.

The News/letters Mandate is to keep the economy vibrant Editor, The News:  Finance Minister Mike de Jong states, “We are sharpening our pencils.” Yes, for everyone else but themselves, it seems. The top aids in the newly elected government have their salary caps increased by 18 to 60 per cent, with salaries up to $230,000. Meanwhile, the elderly and infirm in residential care, who worked and paid taxes all their lives, are now required to pay $25 a month to rent a wheelchair. Really? Mr. de Jong also states, “ I think people understand a new government with a new mandate ... may make changes of these sorts.” Mr. de Jong, the mandate was given to keep the economy vibrant, not give yourselves raises. Yes, ‘the people’ want changes to benefit the ‘people,’ not the Grand Poobahs. Cherryl Katnich Maple Ridge

online comments No business on the street • Hugh Peden · Maple Ridge: Re: No longboard ban for Maple Ridge. Good grief. The neighborhood wants traffic calming? That’s the solution to this? ... The activity is inherently dangerous and they are turning a blind eye to their kids careening down these hills (head first, it seems), and now somehow rationalizing that it’s OK, that our road network is somehow a giant skateboard park. No one has reported it, but how do you think the driver of the car feels? The driver did nothing wrong (no charges from police) and has to deal with seeing a 12 year old nearly killed, laying on the ground while waiting for an ambulance to attend ... Put yourself in that person’s shoes for just a moment. Let’s get serious here: this activity is dangerous –there are no ways to brake in an emergency, there is no lighting, no signals, and the rider is difficult to see, especially if laying down only inches off the ground. This activity has no business on the streets and I’m astounded council and the mayor wouldn’t come out forthwith and say so. Wake up parents. Wake up council.

More than one victim in crash Editor, The News: Re: Boy injured in longboard collision (The News, June 12). With all hope for the young lad who was grievously injured while longboarding down the residential street, I feel compelled to underscore the obvious: the roadway is for vehicles, not for people playing on skate boards, roller blades, or for other games. Those are meant to be deployed in parks or other such pedestrian-type protected areas. It is ironic and so wrong when we encourage young people to play on the roadway that is the main stay of vehicular traffic, not children at play. For parents to post signs warning that ‘children are at play’ on the road is paramount to stating that they are allowing their children to partake in activity that knowingly is inherently dangerous, and that it is the motorists responsibility to provide care for their child. Our local government, and taxes, pay good money to provide children with recreational outlets. Roads are for vehicles. Parents should take children to a local park, skate park, or other such recreational protected area. Don’t put up signs on the roadway, announcing that your children are put in harm’s way and we, as motorists, are responsible for their care. As the parent of two, now fully grown children, we never considered allowing our children to play on the street. We were well aware of the danger of putting our kids lives in the hands of motorists. My heart goes out to the young child that was injured in the long boarding incident, and his parents, too. However, the driver of the vehicle struck by that youth is a also victim. Reg Dunlop Maple Ridge

THE NEWS/files

Some neighbours where the collision occurred are asking for traffic improvements.

Roundabout best Editor, The News: Re: Boy injured in longboard collision (The News, June 12). I live at the corner of McClure and Kimola drives and have thought that this intersection was a waiting accident. Most sunny days when school is out, I see kids skateboarding, longboarding, bike riding and rollerblading, shooting through the two-way stop without slowing. There’s nobody looking out for traffic at the intersection, nothing but blind chance.

Kimola winds around on a steep incline, continuing on through the intersection for a long run down. Our thoughts are with the 12 year old boy who was badly hurt, his family and the woman who he hit. Traumatic. My heart goes out to the boy’s friends who witnessed this. I could see how shaken they were. I believe that regardless of extra patrols, stop signs or driver awareness, that the best solution would be a roundabout, one with soft bumper pads. Wanda LaFlamme Maple Ridge

Unrelenting burden of increasing taxes must stop Editor, The News: As I read the various newspapers of this community, I am struck at the numerous letters in which local taxpayers have expressed serious concern for the ever increasing property tax burden being forced on home owners. It is as though municipal hall is either ignorant of these concerns or it is so arrogant that the message simply doesn’t settle its brain for processing. Let’s be clear: I am referring to district administration, not the everyday workers who ensure we have all of the necessary services of a vibrant, modern community. They, like so many of us, are simply trying to earn a decent income, maybe raise a family or take care of others in the family who find themselves in difficult times. I am talking about the administration, the people who drive our taxes though the roof for no other reason than

poor management. Whenever I express my dissatisfaction with the performance of this organization I am told, ‘If we want the best, then we need to pay top money.’ What is the best? What, exactly, is the job of municipal administrators? I would suggest priority No. 1 must be keeping property taxes under control. Maybe they could consider ability to pay when putting together the annual budget. There are so many ways to get taxes under control, but this seems to not be a consideration at budget time. Rather, it appears the theme is, ‘How much can we tax before there is a revolution,’ or, ‘How far can we push the lowly taxpayer before one or two crack?’ Well, here is a suggestion for Maple Ridge mayor and council: when the redevelopment of the downtown core took place and, being the

mega fiasco that it turned out to be, the citizens ended up purchasing the entire over-priced, project. Unless I am mistaken, that project was financed over 15 years. Therefore, it should nearly be paid for by now, if not, very soon. If the administration has not being fooling around with the agreed over-all plan for that project, the taxpayer should be seeing the benefits very soon. At that time, it was agreed that, at the end of the mortgage on the project, the district would either sell the project and use the funds to directly reduce the taxes; or divert all rental revenue from the various projects to reduce taxes. Any other use of those funds is contrary to the overall theme of the long-term agreement made with the taxpayers, in good faith, and the district, in order that the people accept the purchase

at that time. No money from this project is to be used to dream up yet another department, hire more staff to fill space which would otherwise not be required. It is to benefit, directly, home owners, who have been forced to carry this outlandish costs of the downtown project. By the way, this unrelenting burden of ever increasing property taxes must stop. Find another source to tax, like the railway. Also, tax goods shipped through Maple Ridge. Pitt Meadows must be raking in a killing from the CP Rail container facilities. Why not Maple Ridge? Lastly, enact a study of the amount of carbon emissions spewing from the train engines passing through Maple Ridge, then charge them a local carbon tax. Mike Boileau Maple Ridge

the Downtown Enhancement Project in order to take advantage of the work underway in front of the new Chances Community Gaming Centre at 227th Street. That project requires construction of a new intersection at that street, connecting the downtown with the houses below. “The gateway effect is important on the west side,” said Darrell Denton, with Maple Ridge’s economic development. “What we’re trying to achieve is when you come into town from the west side, it’s different. You get a sense you’re in a different place when you’re in the downtown, when

you hit 222nd Street. “Same thing when you’re coming up from Telosky Stadium. It becomes a natural progression into the downtown. “It builds on council’s goals for the downtown of pedestrian walkability, driving incremental customers and visits and enhancing the street experience.” Another goal Downtown Enhancement Project is to increase the liveability of the town centre, supporting business growth and encouraging investment. Once the project is completed sometime this fall, much quicker than the previous downtown projects, only the gap on

Lougheed Highway between 224th and 226th streets will need renovation. The sidewalk in front of the Valley Fair Mall is fairly new, so it won’t have to be replaced. The project includes improving underground sewer and water lines at the same time, so the road won’t have to be dug up later. The resulting street scape will have the same look as now exists between 222nd and 224th Streets. “It’s pretty cool,” Mayor Ernie Daykin said. The new road, though, won’t have any bike lanes because of space limits, he added, and that the district wants to get cyclists off Lougheed.

‘I can’t say anything until I talk to mayor’ It is legal for Bing to retain his council seat as well as serve as a member of the B.C. Liberal caucus. Under the Community Charter, which sets out rules for civic government, an elected councillor can be removed from office if he is absent from council for 60 consecutive days or four consecutive regularly scheduled council meetings. The city’s deputy chief administrative officer, Kim Grout, clarified that Bing would only have to return to the city for council duties every 59 days to retain his place as a councillor. Bing will resign, but doesn’t know when. “The plan was always for me to step down. It’s just a question of timing, I think,” he said Thursday, the morning after he returned from Victoria. “I can’t say anything until I talk to the mayor and we sort out what she thinks is best for the community. We will make a decision soon, I would think though.” Bing is no longer drawing a salary from the city, resulting in savings of $14,800. As MLA, Bing will make

a base salary of $101,859. If he resigns before January, it will automatically trigger a by-election, which city staff estimate will cost around $15,000. If he remains on council until January, the city can skip a by-election since civic elections are already schedule for November 2014. Bing ended the New Democratic Party’s eightyear hold on the riding May 14 by defeating Elizabeth Rosenau by 620 votes. At a committee meeting Tuesday, several council colleagues suggested Bing should resign. “I think if we get the opportunity, we should fill the seat,” said Coun. Bruce Bell. “I hope that he is able to resign and move on and do his MLA duties and then we can get on debating and deciding whether council wants to fill that position.” Coun. Janis Elkerton worried about a conflict of interest, although the city’s lawyer has confirmed Bing can serve as both councillor and MLA. “I think if we spent the money on a legal opinion, it should be made public and provided to council,”

said Elkerton, noting a recent court ruling which found it illegal for two elected officials on Salt Spring Island to cast votes to provide money to nonprofit organizations, for which they sat as directors. “How is it that a provincial MLA on council can sit on a table and not have the same problems?” Bing isn’t the only MLA faced with the prospect of juggling two jobs. A total of four sitting mayors and eight municipal councillors were elected to the Liberal government, an outcome that could trigger by-elections

from Dawson Creek to Surrey. Coun. David Murray believes it would be difficult for Bing to do both jobs. “I can’t see how it can be done. I am friends with so many provincial MLAs and they’ve told me that they just couldn’t do it,” Murray added. Couns. Gwen O’Connell and Tracy Miyashita also voted against the motion, as did Mayor Deb Walters. Council will formally vote on Bing’s request for a leave of absence at its regular meeting on Tuesday.

2012 ANNUAL REPORT Notice is given in accordance with section 94 of the Community Charter that the 2012 Annual Report of the District of Maple Ridge will be received by Council in a public meeting to be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2013.

The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school board has passed a 2013-2014 budget that made up for a $5.6 million shortfall in funding from the province, and already faces challenges living within it. Wednesday night the board’s trustees reviewed increases that will be faced by groups renting gyms and other school, district facilities, as well as increased class sizes for the coming year. Secretar y-treasurer Flavia Coughlan reported rental rates had been unchanged since 2009, but it was an area identified as a potential revenue source in the

Fax: 604-463:6889

budget process She said the new rates reflect a philosophy that will see classrooms, libraries, gymnasiums, kitchens and multipurposes rooms rented for fees, charging “at a minimum, full cost recovery.” However, she said non-profit groups serving children and licensed child care organizations would continue to be billed on a break-even basis for the district. “From commercial groups, we would actually like to make some money,” said Coughlan. “If someone is going to use public facilities to make money, the public deserves to make some money, too,” echoed board chair Mike Murray. Non-profit children’s groups could rent classrooms and libraries for $1 hourly in the past, and secondary gymnasiums for $5. Last year, the district

made $320,000 from rentals and leases. The new schedule of fees is based on billing per square metre, and is in line with rates charged by Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Parks and Leisure Services, as set out last month. With the new rates, at the high-end of facilities cost, a youth non-profit group would pay $67.50 for a large gym, an adult non-profit $81, a private user $123, and a commercial user $154. For other facilities, such as multipurpose rooms and libraries, the cost will range from about $15 per hour for non-profit youth groups to approximately $50 for commercial users. The new rates will come into effect on Jan. 1. 2014. Trustee Ken Clarkson asked that staff “keep and eye on participation,” and conduct a full review of facility use next year.

Trustee Susan Carr echoed that sentiment: “We don’t want to create any hardships for groups. It’s the times we’re in.” Clarkson also asked about class sizes next year, and whether they will be limited to 30 students. Superintendent Jan Unwin noted that secondary times tables are just being built, and final class sizes will not be known until September. However, she said the system should be flexible to benefit students. “When you get 32 kids signed up for a course, do you turn two away?” she asked. “The numbers are never exactly right – can you run two classes of 16?” Unwin said the district would be better served by putting less emphasis on a 30-student classsize limit, and taking a more wholesome look at “teacher load.” See Rent, p11

Cycling groups splitting up Cyclists in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge are going their separate ways, pedalling down different paths. Maple Ridge council heard Tuesday that the bicycle advisory committee, which has representatives from both municipalities, will split up over the summer. A new group will form in Pitt Meadows in the fall, and be called the active transportation committee. It will focus on all human-powered transportation and is one of the recommendations of the bicycle and pedestrian master plan. Having an active transportation committee will

allow coordinated planning of all non-motorized transportation in the area. “It makes a lot of sense to me. Cyclists and pedestrians have the same needs,” said bike committee chairman Alex Pope. Maple Ridge will decide whether to have a similar group or keep its bicycle advisory committee, once its transportation plan is finalized. “Pitt Meadows is quite a bit further ahead [than Maple Ridge], Pope said. “They have quite a bit more separated pathways.” Pope presented council a list of cycling path projects that are in the works, the first of which will be construction this summer – a multi-use pathway on the north side

She also suggested there made need to be innovation-driven changes. Where a high school classroom could be split between students taking different courses, such as biology 12 and chemistry 12 “similar to the Thomas Haney model.” The Haney system has students doing much more independent learning than the traditional school system. Deputy superintendent Laurie Meston clarified that younger students will not be in overcrowded classrooms. “I can confidently tell you that, at the elementary level, there will be no classes over 30.” Murray has already sent

a letter to new Education Minister Peter Fassbender to convey concerns about additional costs that have not been funded by the province. It’s a problem that has been exacerbated by declining enrollment, and the resulting reduction in perpupil funding. He asked the minister to cover increased costs anticipated as a result of current, ongoing negotiations. “The cost cutting measures implemented to date by School Districts are substantial. Adding further unfunded costs is not possible without significant negative consequences to the education we provide to our students,” said the letter.

of Lougheed Highway between Laity and 216th streets. Pope said bikes paths in Maple Ridge will have to be open to other users, such as pedestrians, because there isn’t the population density to have paths exclusively for cyclists. “Right now, we’re not seeing the volumes. “The focus on the future is to be on separate [from the roadway], multi-use pathways. Because that’s what’s going to get people off their bikes.” •Visit mapleridgenews. com for a list of other cycling projects.

Maple Ridge This Month JUNE 2013: MID-MONTH UPDATE

SPOTLIGHT ON: What Do You Think? Commercial Industrial Strategy and the Environmental Management Strategy Open Houses We would like to extend an invitation to two very important Open House events coming up in the next two weeks. On Thursday, June 20, 2013 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm the Planning Department is hosting a “drop in” Open House to get public input on the Environmental Management Strategy. The meeting will be held at Thomas Haney Secondary School (23000 116 Avenue) in the rotunda.

A major objective of the Commercial & Industrial Strategy is to improve the ratio of jobs to housing. In addition to retaining and supporting existing businesses, the key to meeting this objective is to attract new businesses to locate in the District.

Monday, June 17 9:00 am, Workshop - Blaney Room 1:00 pm, Committee of the Whole - Council Chambers Tuesday, June 18 7:00 pm, Public Hearing – Council Chambers Tuesday, June 25 7:00 pm, Council Meeting - Council Chambers

There will be display boards, presentations and staff will be available to allow you to familiarize yourself with the issue, ask questions and provide your comments and suggestions. The input for this meeting will be incorporated into a draft report that will go back to Council in the upcoming weeks. If you would like further information on this meeting please contact District Environmental Planner Rod Stott by email at rstott@mapleridge.ca. The second Open House will be held on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 and will run from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. This meeting is to provide information and answer questions relating to the development of the District’s Commercial & Industrial Strategy. This “drop in” style Open House will feature display boards and information on the draft strategy document that has been presented to Council. This is your opportunity to ask questions and provide your comments on suggestions as Maple Ridge completes this important piece of work.

It is a showcase event, meaning people get a chance to play, and there will be 18 different sports represented, including archery, frisbee golf, gymnastics, ringette, tennis and lacrosse. “We try to get as many sports organizations as we can coming out,” said Bateson.

Boy, 12, is now breathing on his own; friends offer prayers on Facebook page by Monisha M ar t ins staff reporter

A boy who crashed into a car while riding a longboard in Maple Ridge on the weekend remains in hospital with serious head injuries. The 12-year-old is being assessed daily by doctors, according to police. “He is in stable condition,

breathing on his own,” said Sgt. Dale Somerville. The boy and his friends were boarding in the 24700 block of McClure Drive around 2:15 p.m. Saturday, when he crashed. According to police, the boy was lying on the board on his stomach and failed to spot a car. He colliding head-first into it, just past Kimola Drive. The driver of the car remained at the scene following the crash

while the boy was rushed to hospital by helicopter. The driver was not charged under the motor vehicle act. Police believe the longboarder was at fault. His friends, meanwhile, are sending their prayers and messages to him via Facebook. His mom wrote Monday that doctors were trying to wake him up, but as of Thursday had yet to provide another update.

In search of higher learning options

Task force to explore post secondary potential

staff reporter

The district wants to know if any institutes of higher learning would find the forests and mountains of Maple Ridge a nice place to conduct classes. Council OK’d Tuesday the creation of an education task force, an idea that came out of the economic advisory commission. Staff will report back to council on how the task force will be structured. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said later that the task force would hold meetings with post-secondary institutes such as UBC, SFU or Kwantlen. He foresees the task force as a short-term project that will clarify the exact potential of post secondary in the district. “Get the post secondary folks around the table and tell us what they want from us and we can share what we’re willing to do. “Just get the facts out there and get some realities.” Attracting educational institutes is one of the goals outlined by Invest North Fraser, composed of Maple Ridge, Mission as well as Pitt Meadows, when it participated in the B.C. Jobs Plan. Daykin said councillors keep hearing that SFU or BCIT is interested in locating in Maple Ridge. The BCIT Forest Society already operates a woodlot in Maple Ridge for research and training while UBC runs the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest at the north of 232nd Street.

The key word for cycling is separation

B

oth Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are working on transportation plans. The City of Pitt Meadows is conducting an on-line survey to get input on its plan, which builds on the pedestrian and cycling master plan that was completed last year. Meanwhile, Maple Ridge held an open house on May 22 to get input on an update of its transportation plan, which dates back to 2003. The old bikeways plan from 1994 is now scrapped, and there’s no plan for a new one. But there will be a section in the new transportation plan on cycling. What we got to see at the open house were maps of the planned infrastructure improvements, one each for the different modes. No specifics are given as to priorities or desired time lines. The display boards dealing with cycling show some vague promises: photos of bike lanes and shoulders, green paint on the asphalt, bike racks, signage, and cyclist on the sidewalk? More about that later. It’s great to see that separated infrastructure is planned for Lougheed Highway, from 222nd Street to Maple Meadows Way. Also, well before the Lougheed pathway will be complete, we’ll have a separated path along 128th Avenue between 210th and 224th streets, connecting with the existing section along Abernethy Way up to 232nd Street. Other than these improvements, there will be several more bike lanes here and there, and shoulders along arterials in east Maple Ridge. What really matters most when it comes to our transportation plan for the future is not just some lines on a map, it’s the commitment of our mayor and council, as well as municipal staff and residents to true Smart Growth – which means a lot more than just densification in the town core. Without applying Smart Growth principles in our growth areas of east Maple Ridge and Silver Valley – mixed zoning and densification along arterials, neighbourhood commercial hubs and other local amenities – the expanse of mostly single-family homes there will remain soul-less and people will continue to rely on their cars for pretty much everything.

Much has changed in our town over the past 10 years, so an update was definitely needed. Four years after the opening of the Golden Ears Bridge, municipal engineers now have a better idea of its impact on local traffic patterns. What has also changed, dramatically, is the understanding and knowledge that has been gained over the past 10 years about what is needed to get more people on their bikes. The big word these days is “separation,” because we know now that that’s what convinces less confident people to venture out more on their bikes. That is actually a complete turn-around from what was the basis of our 1994 bikeways plan, and also the 2003 draft transportation plan. At the time it was still thought that it was better for cyclists to bike on the road, with cars. We now also know that the biggest gains to be made are in shorter trips in town. Not everybody can or wants to zip down the highway on a road bike at a speed of 40 km/h all the way to Vancouver. Here’s what I think should be emphasized in the cycling section of the new plan. • Safe cycling to school for kids, separated from car traffic on arterials or busy, higher speed roads in general, and separated from pedestrians in school zones. If we don’t get our kids to establish active transportation habits now, we’ll have lost a generation, and it’s going to be so much harder to get their kids to bike. Safer infrastructure

and education go handin-hand. • We need a complete streets by-law. This will ensure that when new roads are built or existing roads are upgraded within the urban boundary, the needs of all users will be considered, including Cycling cyclists. Jackie Chow • A proper cycling plan for the town core. If cycling is ever to become mainstream, it needs to be taken seriously. Relegating cyclists to streets with few destinations and stop signs at every single intersection, just to get them out of the way of drivers, is going to make even the most law-abiding cyclist behave like any old bike bandit. • A 30 km/h speed limit throughout the town core. I think it’s perfectly fine for everyone who drives a car into downtown Maple Ridge to show some respect for those who live, work or shop there. The town core needs to be a place where people feel welcome, not just cars. Shops will benefit when lower speed and noise levels encourage more pedestrian traffic on the sidewalks, and drivers are more likely to notice their signs or window displays. • A transportation plan can’t be seen in isolation from a parking plan. Providing ample free parking for cars has a huge impact on people’s transportation choices, and also, unfortunately, on the livability and

vibrancy of our town. • Fewer younger people now want to drive a car to get around. Young, well-educated professionals increasingly want to live in places that offer transit, as well as possibilities for a more active lifestyle, which includes cycling for transportation and recreation. Companies are looking to relocate to cities that offer that kind of lifestyle. Maple Ridge already offers much more affordable housing than most other parts of Metro Vancouver, and has the potential to deliver on the active transportation part as well. • Sooner or later Vancouver will have a bike share system set up. That will open up more possibilities for Maple Ridge residents to combine transit with cycling (at both ends). Now let’s get back to the sidewalk cycling. Allowing little kids to bike on the sidewalk makes sense. For the rest of us, it should only be considered a temporary measure, until changes are made that will make the roads safe for cycling. None of the successful bike-friendly cities around the world allow cycling on the sidewalk. So please, let’s not make cycling on the sidewalk part of the plan. Jackie Chow is a member of the Maple RidgePitt Meadows chapter of HUB.

Anita Dame is doing what big sisters do – taking charge. “Someone’s got to help,” she says, stoic and strong beside her paralyzed brother. Cordell Dame continues to push ahead with his recovery and can now walk a few steps with the help of a cane. He and his family are slowly accepting the January court verdict that found the man who suckerpunched him during a drunken argument two years ago not guilty of aggravated assault. “We need to move on from that,” says Anita Dame.

He sustained injuries to his face and brain that left him in a coma for more than a month. He still remains partially paralyzed, unable to move his left arm. Cordell owned and ran his own business, Clean-Pro Janitorial, before the fight left him with life-altering injuries. His wife Tina has struggled to keep the business afloat for the past two years. Anita Dame and her siblings are now organizing a fundraiser for Cordell and his family to keep them from sinking deeper into debt. “We are in financial distress. If we don’t get things figured out, they are going to go bankrupt,” she says. Dame is looking for donations for a silent auction that will be held as part of a fundraiser July 6 at Witch of Endor Pub. The fundraiser starts at 6 p.m.

Sexual disease making comeback, mainly in gay men by J eff Nagel Black Press

Syphilis rates in the Lower Mainland have spiked in the past year to the highest levels seen in decades. The highly contagious sexually transmitted disease, once thought nearly wiped out in B.C., is mainly being seen in men who have sexual contact with other men. Both the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health regions report their syphilis case numbers more than doubled from 2011 to 2012. Vancouver Coastal saw nearly 300 cases last year or 80 per cent of the B.C. total. Fraser reported 67 in 2012, up from 27 in both 2010 and 2011. “We’re concerned about the increasing numbers in Fraser even though it’s not as bad as in Vancouver Coastal,” said Dr. Paul Van Buynder, chief medical health officer for the Fraser Health Authority.

Contributed

An early illustration of patients being treated for syphilis. Some researchers have pointed to the advent of mobile phone apps for easily organizing anonymous gay sex hookups. Van Buynder said he’s not convinced that’s the cause of the increase, noting gay or bisexual men seeking casual encounters have always been adept in finding each other. He is concerned that some men involved shifted to oral rather than anal sex out of a belief it

would reduce their risk of HIV infection. “There was some reduction in the HIV transmission, but it actually does nothing to decrease your syphilis risk,” Van Buynder said. He said the disease is one of the “great mimickers” because its symptoms can often be mistaken for bug bites or rashes, leading those infected to ignore it and spread the bacteria to others.

“I’m concerned that our physicians may not have seen this for a period of time,” he said. About 80 per cent of new cases are among men who have sex with men – a category that includes both gay and bisexual men, as well as other men who don’t identify themselves as such. Public health officials are urging men in the LBGT community to get tested for syphilis every three to six months and to practice safer sex. Other symptoms of syphilis include fever, swollen lymph glands and weight loss. Catching the disease early and treating it with antibiotics is far easier than suffering the untreated consequences –  permanent blindness, hearing loss, deep bone pain, neurological problems and even death.

Testing available Testing is available at youth clinics, doctor’s offices and other clinics. To find a testing clinic, see www.smartsexresource.com or fraserhealth.ca.

New wheelchair fees for care homes slammed Summer Solstice Summer Solstice Pub Night by Jef f Nage l Black Press

B.C.’s lone independent MLA says it’s “absolutely outrageous” that Fraser Health will charge seniors in residential care homes a $25 monthly fee for the use of wheelchairs that until now have been provided for free. Vicki Huntington blew the whistle on the new charge last week shortly after one of her Delta South constituents came into her office brandishing a notification letter from the health authority. “It’s just beyond the pale,” Huntington said, demanding health officials scrap the plan to begin charging the wheelchair rental fee Sept. 1 in publicly funded care homes. “To make you pay for what is an essential component of your

health care in your latter years is absolutely outrageous,” she said. “It’s like saying you have to rent your prosthetic leg from us on a monthly basis. It’s something that has to be reconsidered and reconsidered immediately.” Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma called it a “nominal fee” for specialized custom wheelchairs that typically cost $1,000 to $3,500 and rent privately for $75 to $100. The fee will go to maintain the cushions, wheels and ensure the wheelchairs remain in good working order. Private care homes charge “much higher” amounts or require residents to purchase their own wheelchairs, Juma added. She said lower-income care home residents who are exempted from MSP premiums or are on disability benefits are automatically exempt from the

wheelchair fee and it can be waived in other cases where hardship is demonstrated. Similar fees are already charged at other B.C. health authorities and Vancouver Coastal confirmed a $25 fee will be charged at care homes in that health region as well. Fraser Health estimates 60 per cent of residential care home residents use wheelchairs provided by the facility. “The objective here is obviously not to cause residents any hardship, anxiety or stress,” Juma said. “It’s to bring Fraser Health into line with provincial policy.” The province’s Home and Community Care Policy Manual was updated last October and indicates residents “may” be charged for wheelchairs and various other personal use items. Health ministry spokesman Ryan Jabs confirmed the fees are

O’Neill deal worth reported $650,000 Tyler O’Neill’s has signed a deal with the Seattle Mariners, and will play for their Arizona Rookie League team starting this summer. O’Neill was picked in the third round, and 85th overall, in the Major League Baseball draft last Friday morning. Later that day he graduated from Garibaldi secondary. Baseball America, one of the foremost publications following hardball prospects, has reported that O’Neill received a signing bonus of $650,000. The young slugger declined to confirm that. O’Neill plays for the Langley Blaze of the Premier Baseball League, and this year is hitting .576 with six home runs and 47 RBI in just 59 at bats.

Meghan Dunn of the Haney Neptunes competes in heat three of six in the girls division 4, 100m freestyle finals during the Haney Neptune’s 55th Annual Enerex Invitational Swim Meet on Sunday afternoon at the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre.

Neptunes host 55th annual swim meet

There were more than 400 swimmers and their families in Maple Ridge over the weekend, as the Haney Neptunes hosted their 55th annual swim meet. Swimmers of all ages, from six to adult, and of all levels of ability, from beginner to elite, took part in the event. Athletes with the Neptunes are training for up to eight hours per week, and they attend competitions across the Fraser Valley through the summer, to get ready for the provincials. The summer meets lead up to the BCSSA Provincial Swimming Championships taking place in Coquitlam in mid-August this year. The next competition for the Neptunes will be in Langley on June 29-30.

Above, Neptune Brandon Smith competes in the boys division 5 100m breaststroke, below teammate Andrew Cowie in the boys division 3 100m freestyle.

Burrards minor lacrosse has put the most girls ever onto Team B.C. squads, which will compete at the nationals later this summer. Tryouts were held in Port Moody over three days recently. This year there are three teams being sent to the nationals, which are being held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from July 23-28. Bantam, midget and junior girl teams will be representing the province. Ridge Meadow players had  outstanding tryouts, with the result being the most girls ever being selected from the association to play on their respective teams. On the bantam team, Ashley Kingsbury, Paige Bell, Candace McDole, Sarah Ickert, Megan Stewart, and Nicole Pahnke were selected. The head coach of the bantam Team BC girls is Jason McDole who is also from Ridge Meadows Minor Lacrosse. On the midget team, Ciara Curran, Daniela Carey and Megan Kinna were selected. On the junior team, Ashley Bull made the final cut. The bantam and midget teams will be striving to repeat as gold medal winners, while this will be the first year of nationals at the junior level.

wrestler wins Games berth Wrestler Cody Osborn, a Grade 11 student at Westview secondary school, made Team BC at the Canada Games Team trials earlier this month. He was dominant in the 63 kg class, defeating last years’ national champion. In the final a best-of-three format was used to determine the BC Team representative, and Osborn defeated the reigning provincial high school champion in two straight matches. He did not lose a single round throughout the tournament. He will now represent his province at the Canada Summer Games later this summer.

Sandra Walter, wearing the Canada Cup leader’s jersey, flies off a drop on her way to victory in Baie-St-Paul, Que.

Walter wins first two events Longtime local bike shop staff member and Local Ride Racing road cycling team member Sandra Walter of Coquitlam is well on her way to defending her elite women’s overall Canada Cup cross-country mountain biking series title. She charged to victory at the Canada Cup opener in Mt-Tremblant, QC, on May 18 and again on May 25 at the second round in Baie-St-Paul, QC. “Winning at Tremblant was a great way to start the Canada Cup season. Winning in Baie-St-Paul was just that much sweeter,” said Walter. She also finished first in the Mont-Tremblant and Baie-St-Paul events in 2012. “The courses were both awesome. I was really proud to win while flying my new Liv/giant colours.”

The veteran elite mountain bike racer and Canadian Team member is new to the Liv/giant family for 2013, representing the women’s cycling brand on the dirt at local, provincial, national, and international crosscountry mountain bike and cyclo-cross races this season. Walter completed the four-lap, 27.5-km race at Mont-Tremblant in 1:38, finishing nearly four minutes ahead of second place, Andréanne Pichette (Opus-OGC) of Québec City. Pichette suffered a flat tire near the end of the first lap and was left to chase Walter after receiving a new rear wheel in the tech zone. “Racing through the Tremblant ski village was really neat. Lots of people were out spectating and cheering. It was the perfect day for a bike race – sunny and warm,” said Walter.

In Baie-St-Paul on May 25, in single-digit temperatures and under a threatening sky, Walter navigated the five-lap race in one hour, 33 minutes, and three seconds to finish almost two minutes ahead of Pichette, who took her second consecutive silver medal. Walter suffered a rear flat tire on the second lap, but was able to ride it out to the tech zone, where she took a spare wheel. “While I was changing my wheel, Andréanne [Pichette] blew by me. My change didn’t take long and I was able to regain contact and make a clean pass before the end of the lap,” said Walter. “After that, I just focused on riding smoothly and cleanly, which was tough, because the course is very rooty and the conditions were slick after a lot of rain during the week.” Sudbury, Ont., hosts

Burrards face tough weekend There’s a big weekend ahead for the Joel Delgarno (10) and the Maple Ridge Burrards. When it is done, they will have played half of their 18 games in the Western Lacrosse Association regular season. Tonight they are in Victoria to take on the Shamrocks in a battle for first. Sunday at 6:45 p.m. at Planet Ice, they host the Burnaby Lakers. Burnaby has gone a middling 3-3 on the season, and the Burrards beat defeated them 12-8 on May 31. But the Lakers have won three straight, including victories over the tough Shamrocks and Langley Thunder. The Burrards are ranked No. 2 in the Lacrosse Talk National Rankings, behind only the Brooklin Redmen of Ontario’s Major Series Lacrosse.

Walkable living in Langley

Willoughby Town Centre welcomes Kensington By Kerry Vital

Willoughby Town Centre is rapidly becoming a vibrant gathering place as Langley’s first truly walkable neighbourhood. Now it’s adding its first residential component with Kensington, a 65-unit apartment building. The community, developed by Qualico in partnership with Chow & Li, will provide shopping, dining and high-quality living, all in one spot. “We tried to make sure that there’s a floorplan for everyone,” says Diane Zarola, Sales and Marketing Manager for Qualico. Willoughby Town Centre will soon be an integral part of Langley. Thus far, confirmed tenants include Shoppers Drug Mart, Sassy Nail Salon, RBC, G&F Financial, Noma Sushi Restaurant, Rendevous Liquor Store and Loblaw’s: Your Independent Grocer, the first in the neighbourhood. There will also be an entire building devoted mainly to medical and dental offices. “We are so thrilled to have all these services,” Zarola says. “It’s going to be a very socially active community.” Qualico asked Facebook users what they’d like to see at Willoughby Town Centre. Suggestions included a yoga studio, coffee shops, a pub, and small clothing boutiques. Kensington itself will include ground-level commercial space, three stories of condominium homes, ranging from 660 to 1,360 square feet and 18 different one- and two-bedroom floorplans. “People are absolutely in love with our finishings,” says Zarola. “These are very well-thought-out plans.” Among the amazing finishes at Kensington are kitchens filled with maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite or quartz countertops complemented by a ceramic tile backsplash and marble mosaic accent tile, and stainless-steel appliances. Zarola also notes that Qualico has included convenient fullwall pantries in some homes. “Wherever we could fit them, they’re there!” she says. The bathrooms are equally elegant, most with a spacious five-foot shower with rain shower head, rectangular undermount sink and floating vanity in the ensuite. The main bathrooms feature their own undermount sink, quartz countertops and deep soaker tub with textured ceramic tile. The nine-foot ceilings in your new

We are so thrilled to have all these services,” says Diane Zarola, Sales and Marketing Manager for Qualico. “It’s going to be a very socially active community.” home lend an incredible sense of space and airiness, while the generous patios (truly huge on the second floor) are made for entertaining. Chic laminate flooring blends seamlessly into the plush carpeting in the bedrooms. You’ll also appreciate the contemporary pot lighting throughout your home, which perfectly illuminates your tasks and gives a cleaner look to the ceiling. Every home also includes a den or tech nook perfect for a home office or as extra space for all of your gadgets. “People just adore this space,” Zarola says. “It’s ... very workable.” You’ll also find a front-load washer and dryer included as well. The community is by far the biggest draw for buyers.

MAPLE RIDGE • PITT MEADOWS

All agree, curbside appeal is key Hom es by Robert Prince

L

est there be any misapprehensions when it comes to selling your home, a good first impression is critical. That’s the word from three local realtors, who all agree curbside appeal is hugely important when it comes to wooing buyers. In fact, when asked to provide their top five tips for preparing a home for the market, curb appeal was the only response all three agreed upon. “The old adage, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, is extremely true when it comes to selling a home,” says Dianne Enns, an agent with Royal LePage-Brookside Realty. It’s a sentiment shared by Mike Huber of Macdonald Realty, who says, “First impressions are very important, so yes, curb appeal is a must. Wash windows, in and out, pressure wash, cut lawns and clean up garden beds. “A fresh coat of paint and a little work can go along way to help sell your home, and usually quicker and for a large dollar amount.  Think of yourself as a buyer. What would your first impressions be?” “Drive around your neighbourhood and pretend that you are a buyer,” says Willard Dunn, from Re/Max Lifestyles Realty.  “What do you see that you like? And what not? Now

Colleen Flanagan/the news

RE/MAX associate brokers Willard and Penny Dunn say fixing up the front garden is one of many things you can do to make your house sellable. drive home and look at your house with the same thoughts.  If your home is not as nice as all the other ones you’ve seen, make a list of the things you can do – and can afford to do – then make those changes to yours.” Naturally, that’s just the start for anyone who is serious about selling, and who wants to improve the chances of selling fast and for a better price.

Garnering two nods apiece, and next on the list of priorities are the following: new paint, tidying and decluttering, and creating space. The more spacious and bigger you can make your home feel, the more buyers will like it,” says Dunn. “Open the drapes and turn on the lights [to eliminate shadows].” Put away shoes and clothes, clear counters, pick up anything from the floor that doesn’t belong there, and

pack up the knickknacks. It’s also a good idea to put into storage those items from your closets that you aren’t using to create a more spacious look. Prospective buyers will look in your closets, so don’t just jam everything in there to get it off the floor. “If you have not used it in years, you probably do not need it.  Think of this process as getting a head start on your packing,” says Huber. Some new paint inside and out is a

great way to freshen things up, says Enns. It’s relatively cheap, and it makes the home look new again. It can also brighten the house up and make it seem more spacious if you choose the right colours. To sell, go with neutral colours and let the new owners deal with re-decorating. Unless your home is particularly run down, you probably don’t need to spend a lot of money to get it ready for sale. Only spend money on repairs that make the home look well kept. Replace burned out light bulbs, grease door hinges so they don’t squeak, patch holes, clean the furnace, test your alarms, fix leaks. Check to see that the doors are level. Clean the carpets.   A small investment in time and money will make your home look well cared for, and therefore easier to sell. Another key tip, says Huber, is to find the right real estate agent for you. Do your homework and interview several realtors to find the one who seems most compatible. “We are not all created equal, nor should we be,” he adds. “Real estate is not a ‘one fit’ solution ... Sellers and their agent are a team, and must be able to work together.” Also remember, says Dunn, that these are just tips on improving your chances. At the end of the day, there’s only one thing that will definitely sell your home, he added, and that’s the right price. “And only the buyer and the seller know what that is.” Robert Prince is a local freelance writer.
