Pool rent too high for Neptunes

Teddy talks

Summer swim club questions rate increases

Malcolm Coulter, 6, and his mother, Tammy Jones, with his new talking bear, given to him by the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Branch 263. Malcolm was diagnosed with a brain tumor on April 26. His teddy bear plays tapes that discuss relaxation and breathing techniques that will help him through his chemotherapy sessions.

The cost of renting pool time in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge is on the rise, and the Haney Neptunes Aquatic Club is asking Maple Ridge council why. Antony Cowie, president of the summer swim club, said staff justify increases by using comparisons with the rental rates of pools in neighbouring municipalities. He questioned whether staff is “comparing apples to apples.” He said the Neptunes are the fourth largest summer swim club in B.C., but its facilities aren’t accommodating the team. “We were not able to host the regional championships in our home pool last year,” said Cowie, noting the event had to be taken to Abbotsford’s outdoor Centennial Pool.

Pitt dike trail gone to the dogs Off-leash dog attacks, injures three lambs by Ne i l Co r b e t t staff reporter

Colleen Flanagan/the NeWS

Angel Appleton wants the parks department to reconsider making a portion of the dikes off-leash areas to dogs after three of her lambs were attacked.

A woman whose three lambs were attacked and injured by a dog says Pitt Meadows council should reconsider making the Alouette and Pitt river dikes an off-leash area. Angel Appleton has first-hand

experience with an irresponsible dog owner, and said at least one neighbour has had similar problems, Appleton lives on the Alouette River/Pitt River Dike, and it borders her property on two sides. “I watch the dogs come down the dike, swim across the ravine and into my yard, with the owners just continuing to walk and not care, or frantically yell at their dogs and have no control to get them back.” Her property is fenced and gated, and it keeps in her great Dane, but

a dog crawled under the gate and attacked her livestock. The dog owner said she lost track of her pet for about 10 minutes, and when she found it, it was laying next to an injured lamb. The lamb was unable to get up, or bear any weight on its leg. In total, three young sheep were bitten. “My other lamb had a bite on his face and puncture wound on his front leg, and the other lamb a puncture wound on her leg and is unable to walk,” said Appleton.

“This woman did not apologize, almost made it seem like it was no fault of hers, and that my gate should be lower so dogs can’t get under.” Appleton said it must be the responsibility of dog owners to ensure their animals are not going onto private property and being a nuisance, or a menace to other animals. Not only has she been upset by the injuring of her animals, Appleton is also financially out of pocket. See Off-leash, p5

Business

Car a tough sell in Great White North S tor y by Phil Melnychuk

G

eorge Parker has come to understand something about Canada. We’re not car people. Hockey, maybe. Curling, no doubt. Cars – beautiful, exotic high-performance models that stretch the bounds of technology – not so much.

Even if it’s an exotic, hybrid model that sips only .85 litres of gasoline for every 100 kilometres it rolls down the highway, and does zero to 100 kilometres an hour in five seconds, a model that almost won the Automotive X Prize competition for fuel efficiency and was developed by a bunch of Maple Ridge guys. Future Vehicle Technologies has been in newspapers, in car shows, the subject of a Discovery channel documentary – and even got on the front page of Popular Mechanics. But in the seven years since the eVaro moved from Parker’s childhood dream to a physical entity, no one has stepped up with a bag of money, about $10 million or so, to move it from prototype to production. “Canada doesn’t have that many people who care to invest in cars,” Parker explains. “If we were in the United States, we’d be well into production right now. “Here, people have different thought processes. What I’ve noticed is that investors in Canada are more interested in how much and how long,” to wait for a return on investment. So Parker and his crew have moved on. Actually, they have moved underground. It’s now designing and building electric drive systems for mining vehicles. The three eVaros are still in the shop but are now covered by with shop materials and tools and are now used as test vehicles for new technologies that FVT and its university partners develop. “The car is kind of a learning tool,” said Brad Zimmerman, one of the technical team members who’s turning the research into reality. “It’s what gave us the education and allows us to do what we’re doing now. We couldn’t have done it without the car.” FVT is now fulfilling a major contract with a mining equipment company that has a deadline of the middle of next month. It’s a big contract, one that has that company supplying electric drive components to underground crew carriers and equipment vehicles that yields far more profit margin than the unforgiving automotive world. “They haven’t been able to buy an electric vehicle that works underground yet,” says Parker. “They just haven’t been able to deliver the battery packs for them, they even try using long extension cords to power vehicles but that doesn’t work,” Zimmerman said. FVT is only one of a few companies in-depth knowledge of all the components needed to electrify vehicles. “All they want to do is go to a company, and say ‘here’s our vehicle, make it electric, and take it back,’” said Zimmerman.

George Parker and his group are now designing and building electric drive systems for mining vehicles. With changes in mine standards, FVT may have all the work it can handle. The World Health Organization recently categorized diesel emissions equivalent to asbestos as a cancer threat, Zimmerman said. As a result, companies worldwide are trying to replace at least the smaller diesel vehicles with electrically powered ones. “So there’s kind of a big push. Flat out.

“Right now, it’s like treading water with a brick in your hand.” George Parker, founder FVT

“Were solving a huge problem for these guys.” That doesn’t mean the crew of nine are planning their retirement homes on the French Riviera. But as of last June, the company started turning a profit. It’s not easy still. “Right now, it’s like treading water with a brick in your hand,” adds Parker. “Are we printing money? No,” said Zimmerman. “But we are surviving.” That survival (the company recently relocated from Maple Meadows Business Park to two

R TARY IS

anonymous hangars in Pitt Meadows Regional Airport) hasn’t all been by wits and determination alone, although that figures large in FVT DNA. Thanks to grants and incentives from the federal government’s National Research Council, FVT leveraged investment money and kept its doors open for seven years before money started rolling in. Partnerships with UFV, SFU, UBC and UVic provide the research talent which FVT then develops in its shop. Some of the company’s labour force comes from the grad students working on new technologies. “It’s a brilliant program,” Zimmerman said. “Government will give a lot of money to university, they won’t give it to us.” Even when the company is in the position to ramp up its production and hire people, the government will help out by subsidizing wages for a period, all with the goal of creating jobs. In the time it’s taken to grow to profitability, many other U.S. companies faltered. “We couldn’t have done this in any other country. “It’s the only reason we survived,” says a grateful Zimmerman. Ian Hand, director of SFU’s Innovation Office, which tries to grow young companies, said Future Vehicles did the right thing by abandoning its automotive dream and seizing an opportunity elsewhere.

THE NEWS/files

That’s called a pivot, he said. “It’s an emerging success story,” said Hand. The company is extending its financing by leveraging private investment with government support. Hand said the Canadian government offers good federal support in the form of tax incentives for startup companies, that are needed in this country because there isn’t the amount of risk capital, compared to the U.S. Canadian companies also have to focus on international markets because of the small size of the domestic market. “The good news is that Canadians are quite good at this.” “It’s a good thing. It’s strategic policy in action.” “It’s an excellent example of determination and pivoting.” Meanwhile the cars sit, hidden in the sheds, covered and surrounded by a bunch of testing equipment, consigned to serve as lab rats for the latest ideas by the mad scientists forever tinkering with electric power. And Parker, the founder of the company, finds himself increasingly watching from the sidelines, yet still with dreams for his eVaro that he designed on a napkin 30 years ago. “In Italy and places like that, our car would be a top seller. They’re car people, in England and Europe.” “The car will sell, I don’t need anybody to convince me.” “The more time goes by, the more I realize we’re so far ahead of everybody.”

Car Care with Cyril Barry

THE ANATOMY OF A GOOD REPAIR SHOP

You’re new in town and you would like to find a place that you can trust and take your vehicles there for service. What criteria do you use? How do you know if you’ve made the right choice? Whom do you ask for advice in choosing a good shop? I will attempt to answer all these questions for you in the next few paragraphs. Criteria: If your shopping by price you need to stop that! Accept that good vehicle service is expensive just like everything else related to driving your wheels. You want to find a Full Service Certified Repair Facility that can maintain, diagnose and repair all your automotive needs, all under one roof. This saves you time and money, as the shop gets to know your vehicle(s) and driving habits. This translates to the ultimate in personal service tailored to your needs, budget, timetable and requested level of service. The most Bang for your Buck! Right Choice: A good repair shop will live up to your expectations and more. By more I mean they will raise your level of awareness with regards to your vehicle’s needs based upon your requirements. They will encourage your questions, give you plain, easy to understand answers so you can digest and understand what is going on with your vehicle. A good shop will inform you how much you need to spend before they start and make you sign a work order so that you both have a commitment of understanding(contract). You will know what your spending and what your getting. This eliminates any misunderstandings, especially useful if you drop off the vehicle and your spouse picks it up, or the vehicle is at the shop for a few days and the shop contact person has changed due to scheduling of staff. A good shop will not spend any more of your money without first contacting you for authorization to do so. This eliminates any angry or embarrassing moments when your picking up your vehicle. Good shops will inform you of future maintenance or repairs and give you a timetable and quote so that you can budget for it, they will send you a service reminder if you desire. Whom do you ask? First and foremost you ask the people you encounter in your daily routines. Word of mouth is the best form of recommendation. Ask someone you know in a related business, but do it off the job. In other words don’t phone the towing company and ask them who the best shop is. They deal with all of them so they can’t really answer that question. But if you happen to run into someone who works on the parts counter of auto parts store, they’re a good source of reference. Good luck and by all means if you have any questions, just give us all call. We’re one of the good ones.

Paramedics hanging around hospital ER longer 149 per cent increase in March by P hil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter

Ambulance crews are hanging around the emergency department longer this year than last, waiting for beds at Ridge Meadows Hospital so their patients can be admitted. According to the B.C. Ambulance Service,

in March of this year, crews spent a total of 24 hours waiting with patients before they could be admitted. That’s a 149-per-cent increase above the 9.8 hours spent waiting in March 2012. Superintendent Lisa Crowder shared the details during an update at Maple Ridge council’s Monday committee meeting, while director of operations Tim Philley said B.C. Ambulance meets

regularly with Fraser Health about the issue. Mayor Ernie Daykin wanted to know why wait times have increased and said later it could be a matter of creeping up to previous wait times, following reductions made after the opening of the new emergency department. Crowder said the length of delays are determined by the number of beds available. And while wait times

have climbed in Maple Ridge, they’ve dropped throughout the Fraser Health region as whole. Ambulance crews spent a total of 431 hours waiting to offload patients last March, down from 598 hours in March 2012 – a 28-per-cent drop. B.C. Ambulance figures show that, in 2011-12, ambulance crews responded to an average of 16 calls (911) a day in Maple Ridge, a jump of six per cent from the year before. In the same time period, Maple Ridge had 3,600 urgent Code 3 calls, while Pitt Meadows had 700. Two ambulances are based in Maple Ridge 24 hours a day, as well as one public response unit. Average response time for an ambulance is about 11 minutes. When statistics for all of B.C. are considered, the number of calls has stabilized. About 30 per cent of all calls for ambulances are for emergencies, while the rest are for medical transfers. A dispatch system allows for creating waiting lists for less-urgent calls in order to give priority to emergencies, thus minimizing the number of ambulances responding to critical incidents with lights and sirens. The longer ambulance drop-off times in March, though, could be a statistical blip. Tasleem Juma, with Fraser Health, said emergency room visits can spike during March. “We’ve seen, anecdot-

ally, any time there’s spring break … we usually see an increase in emergency department visits.” That’s because many family doctors are out of town, forcing people to go to the hospital to treat their ailments. When the long-term average wait times are considered, Ridge Meadows Hospital has reduced its wait times for ambulance dropoffs thanks to its new Rapid Assessment Zone – which speeds emergency treatment for minor ailments without having to admit patients. “That certainly has speeded up the process of patients through the emergency department,” Juma said. Apart from March – which saw more than a doubling of the average “off-load delay” time from 18 to 48 minutes compared to March 2012 – January, February and April all showed drops in the average ambulance wait times when compared with the same month in 2012. In February this year, the average wait time for dropping off a patient and allowing ambulance crews to get back on the road was cut in half, from 48 to 24 minutes, and in April, from one hour to 36 minutes. And for the Fraser Health region overall, off-load delays have decreased by 28 per cent since March 2012. “I was really pleased when I looked at the longer term data that showed a decrease,” Juma said.

No near-term metering for water in Maple Ridge by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Metering residential water use cuts consumption by up to 30 per cent across Canada. On the rainy West Coast, though, it’s not as certain that the money spent installing water meters will be paid back in the value of water saved. A Maple Ridge report Monday said that four cities in the Vancouver area with metered residential water showed no reduction in water consumption. “Despite all the in-

creases in metering, the people who did install the meters are doing about the same,” utility engineering manager Joe Dingwall told council. Water use can be affected by local climate and socio-economic conditions. Maple Ridge currently meters water use by commercial users and multi-unit residential buildings, but not individual homes. However, all new homes for several years have been built with meter boxes. Despite the lack of metering single family homes, water use has

been decreasing. Lowflow toilets, lawn sprinkling regulations and efficient appliances have reduced consumption, to the point that overall water use in 2011 is similar to the volume used in 2001, despite a 20-percent population growth. Dingwall crunched the numbers and said Maple Ridge would have to acheive a 30-per-cent reduction in water use

in order to pay for the $22-million cost of installation of meters in the remaining 14,000 single family homes. The 30-per-cent reduction factors in a 10-percent decrease in water use as a result of waterefficient appliances. Dingwall also pointed out a perplexing situation in which decreasing water use in Metro Vancouver could lead

to higher water rates to make up revenue shortfalls. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities says that universal water metering can reduce water use by between 15 and 30 per cent. Maple Ridge’s 70,000 residents get their water from Metro Vancouver’s Coquitlam Lake Reservoir. According to the 2011

Environment Canada Municipal Water Use Report, Maple Ridge has the third highest per capita water use in Metro Vancouver, at about 330 litres per capita per day. Only West Vancouver, at about 440 litres per capita per day, and Delta, at about 360 litres per capita per day, use more water than Maple Ridge residents. Coun. Mike Morden suggested that Maple Ridge consider installing water meters in homes where people repeatedly

violate sprinkler regulations. Dingwall said West Vancouver recently metered most of its homes, resulting in a 25-per-cent reduction in water use. The City of North Vancouver and Coquitlam have the lowest water use, with the latter using just more than 200 litres per capita per day. The Coity of North Vancouver used kust under 200 litres per capita per day. The average consumption in Metro Vancouver is 365 litres.

Swimmers leave to train Rent from front

He said Paralympic silver medallist Nathan Stein is from Maple Ridge, but the national media reported him as being from Surrey, because that is where he is forced to train. Neptunes water polo players cross the Golden Ears Bridge four times per week to train in Langley and Surrey pools. The club will host a Canada Day water polo tournament next month, but Cowie told council “half of our water polo players won’t participate because we cannot have under-16 competition in the shallow pool.” The new hourly rental fee for Hammond Pool and Harris Pool, beginning Jan. 1, 2014, will be $26.75 for youth/senior non-profit, $40.13 for adult non-profit, $66.88 for private and $70.54 for commercial. Over two years, there has been a considerable increase. The youth non-profit rate was $19.16 in 2012, and the private rate was $55.47. The fee for the indoor competition/teaching/leisure pools in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows is billed per lane, and is $9.88 for youth/senior non-profit, $14.82 for adult non-profit, $24.70 for private and $31.38 for commercial. The rate was $5.31 per lane for youth/senior nonprofit through 2012. What neighbouring facilities were surveyed, and what are their rates, Cowie asked council. He was told that Kelly Swift, general manager of community development, parks and recreation services, would answer his questions. Since then, the club has been in discussions with the district, and had no further comment on the issue. With the proposed increases in facility rental rates for 2014, the district expects to generate an additional $17,000 in admission revenue and $20,000 in rental income.

‘Dikes not controlled enough’ Off-leash from front

The dog owner left her name and number, but so far it has been no use in recovering Appleton’s veterinary bills. She called an on-call emergency vet to check on her injured animals, and incurred a $241 cost. She feels it is the responsibility of the owner of the loose dog. The dog owner has not answered her phone, or returned the call. “This woman was a very irresponsible owner who took no accountability for her dog’s actions.” Another neighbour has had her dogs attacked by aggressive dogs running loose. Appleton has two young boys, and questions whether their safety is at risk in their own yard. Earlier this month, council approved a 5.8-km section of trails stretching from the Pitt River Bridge to the north end of Harris Road as an off-leash area. One of the reasons for designated off-leash areas is to keep dogs out of children’s playgrounds and parks. Council also asked staff to educate dog owners, and add more garbage cans and signs to the area. Appleton said a more enclosed area is needed. “To avoid situations like what happened to my lambs last night, dikes are not a controlled enough environment for off-leash areas,” said Appleton. “That’s why we have dog parks in closed, gated parks.”

Kids are where? Back in the olden days, as is said, a voice would take control of television sets at precisely 10 p.m. and ask viewers: “Do you know where your children are?” That question is more relevant than ever following allegations of a disturbing crime at a weekend bush party in Kamloops. According to RCMP, more than 1,000 youths converged at a popular party spot in Barnhartvale, where a 17-year-old girl was sexually assaulted. Investigators believe someone may have witnessed what occurred and taken photos or video of it. If so, police are hoping such images are turned in to them to assist the investigation, rather than shared online or by test messaging. The crime itself is horrific and the person who committed it should face the harshest sentence available in our justice system. The fact a teenager’s life has been irrevocably altered should serve as a reminder to all – parents in particular – that predators know where and when to act. A bush party in the middle of nowhere, featuring a thousand kids and booze and drugs? We cannot think of a more dangerous place for young people to be. Last year, a similar massive outdoor party in the Barnhartvale area resulted in a vehicle hitting a girl, sending her to hospital with a broken pelvis. Another girl had a liquor bottle smashed over her head. And, believe it or not, parents were actually driving their kids to these parties. Nothing good can come of a thousand kids in the woods with booze and drugs. Nothing. This tragic crime on the weekend, and others like it, should be more than enough to have every parent tighten that leash on their teens, regardless of whether ‘everybody else is doing it.’ – Black Press

At www.foodsafety.com the answer is, no. “Salmonella grows in the intestinal tracts of animals and birds,” it says. “Humans can become infected with pathogens after eating foods that come in direct or indirect contact with animal feces.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture lists 10 “diseases and parasites transmittable to humans” from improperly treated chicken manure, including listeriosis, which killed 23 people who ate Maple Leaf meats in 2008. And, “cryptosporidium parvum can be fatal for people with weakened immune problems, the elderly, and small children.” Were any of them at the Abbotsford dump site? Did anyone check? Before fleeing the smell of feces and ammonia, some campers complained of feeling sick. Is it safe for the environment? Here’s the USDA: “Antibiotics, pesticides, and hormones ... used in animal feeding operations, may pose risks ... These compounds reach surface waters via runoff from land-application sites.” Ray Nickel of the B.C. Poultry Association called me “an alarmist” for suggesting chicken manure – which contains arsenic – could contaminate ground water, and release pathogens that make folks sick. Nickel says most diseases are made inert by composting, a process growers employ in an emergency biosecurity plan initiated after the 2004 bird flu epidemic that forced the culling of 17 million chickens.

Is 12 years old too young to have a cell phone ? Yes: 73% – No: 27% (143 votes)

What I’ve found most “alarming” is unanswered questions. Who ordered the dumping? Who supplied the manure? Was it composted? What risk of disease remained? What danger to environment, animals, water? And, do all Canadians have a right to respect and protection? I tried repeatedly to ask Mr. Murray this. No luck. When a reporter asked him for an interview, a spokesman replied: “I don’t have anyone available for comment today.” Is chicken manure safe? The Canadian Food Inspection Agency had to know. In B.C., its dispatcher, Brad, passed me to George, “in fruits and vegetables.” George’s voice mail redirected me to Alvin. Another voice mail. I asked for a call and waited for days. Frustrated, I tried MP Randy Kamp’s office. CFIA inspectors had failed to detect E.Coli at XL Foods in Alberta in 2012. The result was the worst beef recall in our history. A report recommended CFIA train inspectors better, and “ensure a technical expert is available to deal with media and stakeholders.” Stephen Harper said he’d do this, but he hasn’t yet. Kamp’s secretary, Mike Murray, said I’d get a call. I did, from Lisa Murphy, in media relations. She didn’t know about chicken manure, but she’d locate someone. I waited, then called CFIA in Victoria. They gave me a CFIA veterinarian in Abbotsford.

This week’s question: Is municipal spending out of control?

Wasting money on advertising an idea Editor, The News: Been watching the hockey playoffs? Have you seen the ads from the Conservative government about the Canada Job Grant? Have you seen the small writing on the screen that says “subject to parliamentary approval?” The Canada Job Grant is a program that doesn’t exist, and isn’t likely to exist. It is supposed to be a $15,000 skills training grant that will train upwards of 130,000 Canadians a year, of which $5,000 will come from the feds, $5,000 from the province or territory, and $5,000 from the individual business. Only problem is, the federal portion is to come from cuts to already existing programs. B.C. has already said it will be cutting programs to balance the budget; not adding. And the only businesses likely to participate are ones who are already training workers. So Canada has now reached the point where the federal government spends hundreds of thousands of dollars advertising something that is essentially nothing more than an idea. There is no pilot program, no study, no allies and no documentation to support this idea. Yet voters are so oblivious to what’s going on that many will likely vote to re-elect these people and cite programs like the above as the reason for their support. Cheryl Baron Maple Ridge

You’re asking about what? Emberly from p6

“You’re asking about chicken manure,” asked Dr. Avtar Singh. “Is it true, composting chicken manure doesn’t render all pathogens inert,” I asked. “Yes,” he said. “Do you know anything about the manure dump in Abbotsford?” “No.” Dr. Singh added he’d no prior knowledge of the dumping. Someone should have checked with him. After 2004’s flu outbreak, the CFIA and chicken growers developed a biosecurity plan to ensure the virus isn’t passed between mega barns. It’s needed to protect a lucrative industry. Is the public also safe? Is there a plan for us, and the environment, as well for the safe handling of chicken manure? Composting doesn’t kill botulism. Are there other resistant diseases to think about? Conservation officers quickly concluded their investigation, and the ministry of environment was satisfied as soon as the manure was removed. MOE must think it’s safe. But, when it’s harder than pulling teeth to get answers from protection agencies, city staff, and elected officials, the silence – more chilling than Szell’s drill – declares, emphatically, that it’s not safe for any of us. Jack Emberly is a retired teacher, local author and environmentalist.

online comments Bulk buying • Enzo Testa · Sutherland Secondary School: Re: Sobeys buying up Safeway stores. Many companies and consumers do realize that there is only one threat, and that is Walmart. It’s been a few years now that Walmart has introduced more and more groceries in its stores, with prices so low it is very hard for other retailers to compete against. The main reason for Walmart’s prices being low is due to bulk buying power, which makes products cheaper. Walmart is known to pay low wages with high turnover with employees. Safeway pays a decent wage and many raised families and had careers for 40 years. ... Maybe or rather hopefully it was a good thing that Sobeys bought Canada Safeway. Now Sobeys can become even stronger, with massive buying power to compete against Loblaws ...

Co-op miscarriage of justice Editor, The News: Re: Pitt couple evicted from housing co-op (The News, June 5). I hope that the B.C. Supreme Court overturns this ruling made by the Meadowland Co-op and B.C. Co-operative Association. Residing at a co-op in Maple Ridge for seniors, I am painfully familiar with too many rules – often outdated and dictatorial rules. It is appalling to have fewer rights in our golden years. Joan and Jim Fast deserve to be

treated with consideration, respect and compassion for doing all they can for their ailing adult son, in their home. Rules can be changed, exceptions can be made, given the circumstances of individual cases. The actions of the Meadowland board of directors, their lawyers and the B.C. co-op branch, and the 66 per cent of the members who voted to evict this couple, reeks of unfairness. Disregarding common sense, quality of life, moral and ethical values, is

an abomination for which the co-op should be punished. Joan and Jim Fast should not. I trust and expect this miscarriage of justice to be rectified by the Supreme Court. Having an advocate at seniors’ coops will go a long way to ease the pressure and abuse of power exercised by closed minds that enforce rules and ignore all other factors – such as human rights and family values.

How flexible is education system, really? Editor, The News: Re: School board raises rent for facilities (The News, June 14). In this article, Superintendant Jan Unwin uses the word flexible as it pertains to class sizes and case loads of teachers.   Now flexible on its own is normally seen as a good word – one that seems to fit with collaboration and team work.   It’s a word we like to think of when we think of get-

ting along and compromising.   In this case, however, flexible is that buzz word from the ministry of education that really means ‘teachers need to be flexible and compensate for the underfunding of the system.’ When students sign up for courses, they pick alternatives in case classes are full.   They understand the system and they understand that when 32 students request a course in any given year that

two of them will have to move on to their alternative choice.   There is always next year. In terms of the idea of teacher load, or case load per teacher, as an alternative to class size limits, there are inherent pitfalls.   With tightening budgets and decreasing enrolment, scheduling of courses becomes more difficult at the secondary level. It would be very easy to place 37 students in one block

and 23 in another to achieve case load, but that does nothing to produce the best learning conditions and working conditions in that classroom of 37.   The flexibility then lies with the teacher and the students to find workarounds rather than the system being flexible to the conditions needed for best educational practice.   How flexible is that? Todd Patrick Maple Ridge

Values from bygone era are still held by many Editor, The News: Re: What ails the New Democrats? Plenty (B.C. Views, June 19). Thank you to Tom Fletcher for another provocative column concerning what ails the New Democratic Party. This seems to be one of his favorite subjects. I only wish the editor would give him more column inches so he could have included

such things as believing that the resources of B.C. should benefit all the citizens rather than merely a few wealthy corporate friends; that hard working folks should be paid enough to live on; that holding the record for kids in poverty is not something we should value; that investing in education pays great dividends for all of us; that planning to reduce poverty actu-

ally saves the government money; that ‘green’ jobs are the future; that supporting young families with good quality daycare would actually boost our provincial GDP; that people taking loved ones to the hospital don’t need the added stress of pay parking; that corporations should pay their fair share of the taxes to support services; that people with disabilities deserve de-

cent levels of support. I know many of these are values of a bygone era (Mr. Fletcher’s words), so 20th Century – but they are still held by many Canadians. Bob Goos Maple Ridge Editor’s note: Bob Goos is president of the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows NDP riding association.

Maple Ridge wage bill rises $1 million Council pay, though, holds by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

While the public cries about higher taxes, Maple Ridge politicians are still in the deep freeze with regard to their publicly paid salaries, with their pay still at 2011 levels.

Top earners The top 10 District of Maple Ridge staff earners for 2012: • Jim Rule, CAO, $246,561; • Frank Quinn, general manager public works, $204,131; • Paul Gill, general manager, corporate and financial services, $193,108; • Kelly Swift, general manager, community development, parks and recreation, $170,446; • Dane Spence, fire chief, $152,232; • Peter Grootendorst, fire chief, $151,717; • Liz Holitzki, bylaws director, $150,278; • Russ Carmichael, director engineering operations, $142,742; • David Boag, director of parks and facilities, $138,637; • John Bastaja, director of corporate support, $137,282.

Each of Maple Ridge’s councillors are making just under $43,000, says the 2012 statement of financial information. As for the leader of the group, Mayor Ernie Daykin’s salary actually dropped by $180 last year compared to 2011. Daykin’s Maple Ridge salary rings in at $99,435, less than the $99,615 he made the previous year. The information is in the annual Statement of Financial Information presented at the June 17 committee of the whole meeting and shows councillor’s expenses for 2012 ranging from a low of $1,019 for Coun. Judy Dueck to a high of $6,838 for Mayor Ernie Daykin. The numbers show that the total amount in wages for Maple Ridge senior staff earning more than $75,000 climbed by 6.4 per cent, to a total of $12,939,886. Combined with the salaries of employees making less than $75,000 a year, the district’s total

wage tab came to $31.4 million, about $1.4 million more than the year before. That works out to a 4.7-per-cent increase, which is a drop from last year’s hike of about 5.5 per cent. Salaries can vary yearly according to the number of pay periods, where an employee is on the pay grid and if staff are paid out for unused vacation. The district’s wage bill has also increased in recent years as it moves from a paid-volunteer force to a hybrid of fulltime firefighters and part-timers. Firefighters are making between $78,103 up to $95,948. Coun. Cheryl Ashlie said politicians are hearing from the people that they can’t afford constantly rising taxes. “We have to have a definite shift in how we operate.” She’s looking forward to the recommendations from the new municipal

auditor general, who’s first looking at how cities issue contracts, as well as their human resources practices. “From the municipal level, there is that will to get better.” The district also compared its taxes with others in the Lower Mainland, noting it has the fourth lowest when average single family homes are compared. In Maple Ridge, municipal taxes payable on that house are $1,966. Langley township has the lowest municipal taxes for 2013 at $1,682. Surrey is next cheapest at $1,719, with Pitt Meadows charging $1,760 and Mission, $1,839. Residents in Port Coquitlam, North Van, Delta, Vancouver and New Westminster all pay more taxes for the same house. With recycling, water and sewer charges included, Maple Ridge residents paid about another 4.3 per cent in taxes for 2013, or another $116.

Cycle path up for council vote soon A major piece of the cycling path puzzle will be laid into place this summer, if council approves a contract for $877,693 to Mission Contractors. The money will be for a new, separated pathway for use by cyclists and pedestrians on the north side of Lougheed Highway between 216th and Laity streets. Once consultants fees, landscaping and improvements to the corner of Laity Street are added, the 635-metre project comes to $1.1 million. However, grants of $758,831 are reducing the cost to the district. The project includes building a retaining wall, sidewalks, street lights, curbs and gutters and will provide an important link for cyclists trying to connect with cycle paths in the downtown area and farther west.

Ridge fire department, Hydro work out a plan The fire chiefs and B.C. Hydro have figured out a way to minimize the risk of wild fires on the new powerline right of way, slicing through northern Maple Ridge. Fire chief Peter Grootendorst said Hydro and its contractor FlatironGraham met with the fire department, the Wildfire Management Branch and UBC’s Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, located at the north end of 232nd Street, to work on a “prefire plan” to prevent a forest fire during mid summer. Research forest manager Paul Lawson is worried that piles of slash left over from the clearing could fuel a major fire during mid summer. If fire spread to the nearby research forest, treegrowing experiments spanning decades could be wiped out. Grootendorst said Hydro will start grinding and chipping the timber piles next week, then hauling the chips off site. The research forest and fire department pointed out the high hazard areas that will be the priorities for removing the debris. Grootendorst expects the chipping to be underway within two weeks, in time to get debris chewed through before hot weather makes the forest too risky to work in. B.C. Hydro has said work crews are all trained in firefighting and equipment is on standby as well as helicopters. A mock firefighting exercise will also be part of the preparations.

aple Ridge has lost one of the community’s great leaders with the passing of Sherman Olson. He was a graduate of UBC, then the Northern Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago in 1951. Olson worked for almost 20 years in a Vancouver practice at Granville and Georgia, then in 1971 come to Maple Ridge to raise his family. He and his wife Josephine had daughters Julie and Nancy. Julie was born with cerebral palsy, and Olson served as president of the Vancouver Cerebral Palsy Association, and was the founding chairman of the B.C. Neurological Society. Olson also served as president of the B.C. Association of Optometrists and numerous other professional groups. He was back and forth to Victoria, shepherding legislation that allowed optometrists to enter the Medical Services Plan, so their services would be covered. He was also a great builder in the equestrian sports, and worked for horse trails. In the book The Horsemen, co-author Jan White writes: “As a founder of Horse Council B.C., his vision of building a strong, provincial equine body, his commitment to this cause and his dedication and direction as the president for the first 10 years resulted in the strongest and largest of all provincial horse councils in Canada.” He and partners purchased the Maple Ridge Riding Centre, and operated it as a community resource from 1974 to 1984.

“There was nothing on his bucket list, he told me.” Nancy Olson-Beaulieu Among his many accomplishments was a national riders relay called the Ride for Canada in 1992, which took four months to cross the country from the Yukon, through B.C. and east to Ottawa, bearing

Sherman Olson moved to Maple Ridge in 1971 and opened an optometry clinic. the theme Expression of Unity, Pride and Love for our Country. He concluded the ride on Parliament Hill, in the presence of the Queen, and later received a Governor General’s Award. He was also the founding president of Trail B.C., which he started to help recreational riders build, map and maintain trails in the province. His home community was the main beneficiary of Olson’s leadership skills. He served on the hospital board and the hospital foundation, the chamber of commerce, arts council, Ma-

ple Ridge community foundation and the economic advisory council. In 2001, he organized the first Thomas Haney Days festival. “He touched so many lives, and made a difference,” said his daughter Nancy Olson-Beaulieu. “He had a full life and no regrets. There was nothing on his bucket list, he told me.” Among his many honours, Olson was Maple Ridge’s Business Person of the Year, Horse Person of the year, and received the hospital foundation’s president’s award, as well as the

highest honour from the B.C. Association of Optometrists. His colleagues in the latter association referred to him as “The Father of Optometry.” Each year, Olson would give a speech to welcome new optometrists to B.C., and that was what he was about to do in his last days. Olson was at the annual general meeting for the college of optometry, and was to speak the next day. Staying at the Metropolitan Hotel in Vancouver on June 9, he passed away in his sleep. He was 85.

T

wo months ago, Malcolm Coulter was a heathy sixyear-old. He was attending school at Hammond elementary, where his mother, Tammy Jones, had just started teaching, and his two older sisters, Dara, 8, and Macy, 11, also attend. Although he had the flu a couple of times last winter and was dragging a bit, he was still acting like a normal boy, one who enjoyed playing Skylanders, Pokemon, Wii and building Lego. He also enjoyed kicking the soccer ball around, playing ball hockey with his eldest sister and dancing with both of them, especially in competition with the Wii game Just Dance. Malcolm had been having occasional headaches and vomiting episodes, but it wasn’t until midApril when he went to the ACT with his family to watch Dara perform in the Showstoppers Academy production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Junior that he turned to his mom and told her he was seeing double in his right eye. This was the second time he’d had double vision in days, so he visited an optometrist in Maple Ridge. “He had nothing really alarming,” said Malcolm’s mother. Just the headaches and vomiting. “The doctors even said normally they wouldn’t be worried about that either. We thought it might have been the stomach flu since it had been going around in January. But it was the double vision that sent us to the doctor,” Jones said. The optometrist told them that the optic nerves in both eyes were swollen and referred Malcolm to

Three days later, the ophthalmologist told them to go straight to the Emergency Department at Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. After a CT scan, doctors discovered that Malcolm had a golf-ball-sized brain tumor at the back of his head, sitting on his brain stem. He was diagnosed on April 26 with malignant madulloblastoma. Neurosurgeons performed emergency brain surgery the next day to remove the tumor. They were able to get the bulk of it out but, not wanting to touch the brain stem, were only able to shave the rest of the tumor down. Now Malcolm is facing more than a year of radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Every Monday to Friday, for 15 to 20 minutes each morning, Malcolm receives radiation therapy at the B.C. Cancer Agency in Vancouver. For the first three weeks he received radiation for both his spine and brain.

But now just for his brain. “He has been tolerating it with an anesthetic,” said Malcolm’s grandmother, Darlene Holmes. In total, Malcolm will have six weeks of radiation therapy. He has already finished three. He’s also started chemotherapy, every Monday. “The combination of the one chemotherapy drug with the radiation seems to get good results with his cancer,” said Jones. Once his radiation therapy has ended, Malcolm will have a four week recovery period before starting nine sixweek cycles of intensive chemotherapy. His chemotherapy treatments will require him to spend three days in hospital. It will take him five and a half weeks to recover, building up blood counts before doing the process all over again. He will be receiving chemo until September 2014. In the meantime, his mother has since left her teaching job to stay at

home with him. On Thursday, friends of Holmes and members of the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Branch 263 out of Coquitlam, gave Malcolm a special Teddy bear to raise his spirits and help him through his therapy. Legion president Fran McDiarmid and pastpresident Isabelle Nisbet met Malcolm at his home in Maple Ridge to give him the bear. It has a cassette deck in its leg and came with seven tapes. Each one discusses a different topic, including relaxation and deep breathing techniques, set to peaceful music, to help him cope with his therapy. It is one of the last bears distributed by the ladies auxiliary, as the program has been discontinued. Still, McDiarmid says the bears are meant to boost the esteem of sick children. “We are hoping that this is going to make life a little easier for him,” Nisbet added. “It is so sad to be so young and have to carry so much pain.” One of the things Malcolm wants to do when he gets better is to try hip hop dancing. There is an 80 per cent cure rate for the cancer treatment program Malcolm is on. “So we’ve got our fingers crossed that things will turn out well,” said Jones.

To donate to donate or send well wishes to Malcolm go to http://www.rallyformalcolm.com. All donations in support of Malcolm will go directly to his care. Any surplus funds will be donated to B.C. Children’s hospital.

A staff report says there has been a “serious rise in the presence of Japanese knotweed.” The species is invasive and must be controlled. It is now found all along Lougheed Highway. Adding Japanese knotweed to the list will allow the district to order that it be removed from a property. Council will consider the changes at a future meeting after reading a report at its committee meeting Monday. Last year, eradication crews from the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver worked to contain the spread of Japanese knotweed along Lougheed Highway in Pitt Meadows,

Amnesty aims to reduce firearms CONGRATULATIONS Eight guns, 500 rounds turned in to local RCMP

Draw Dad

by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

So far, eight firearms and about 500 rounds of ammunition have been turned into the Ridge Meadows RCMP during this June’s gun amnesty. The local detachment is joining all police departments across B.C. in declaring a province-wide firearms amnesty this month. The goal is to provide citizens the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted firearms that may be in their possession, generally with a “no questions asked” approach by law enforcement. “A gun amnesty provides an opportunity to reduce the number of firearms in our communities, which enhances public and police officer safety,” said Sgt. Dale Somerville in a press release. “Unwanted, or improperly secured, weapons can be potential hazards which can result in devastating consequences, such as a young child playing with them. There is also a chance that a common thief can steal a firearm in

can call police at 604-463-6251 and an officer will come to their home at an agreed-upon time to pick up the firearm, weapon, or ammunition for destruction. As long as the gun or weapon has no links to a serious crime, then no questions will be asked. The last gun amnesty was in 2006, and police recovered more than 3,200 guns, over 96,000 rounds of ammunition, and 725 other unwanted weapons across the province.

A Knights Tale is all about Sir Spamalot who is the Kings most trusted in his Court. Our story unfolds with Sir Spamalot realizing that the King, who has been out of the country for many a year, is due to return and everything must be in tip top shape. But in looking things over, the kingdom is in a shambles and not at all where it ought to be when the King returns. He calls a meeting of the Knights of the Triangle Table to discuss the problem at hand and come up with the question…what must be done to prepare for the king? Through the antics of the Court and the mishaps that usually take place in our SKC dramas, we are left with lots of laughs and lessons to learn. In keeping with the theme, we have lots of fun for everyone each and every day. From the Daily Jousting Matches and Quests, to the Jester’s Riddle of the day and Camelot’s Court, there is sure to be something for everyone, boys and girls, young and old. Don’t miss out on this exciting program. This program is open to those going INTO Kindergarten to Grade 7 in September 2013. The dates to mark on your calendar are July 15-19, 2013 from 4:00-7:30pm each day. The cost this year will remain the same as the past few years at $30 each with a family max of $100. This covers the entire program which includes all dinners, snacks and program! Registrations will be accepted anytime from now until Friday, July 5th at 4pm. You can come in to the church and register or you can register and even pay online. If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the church office at 604-465-4418.

B.C. drunk driving rules get results

An independent study credits B.C.’s controversial drinking and driving laws for a 40 per cent drop in fatal crashes related to alcohol. Since September of 2010, police have handed out temporary driving bans and fines to many drivers caught with blood-alcohol levels over .05, including many who blow over the criminal threshold of .08 who would previously have been prosecuted for impaired driving. The Centre for Addictions Research at the University of Victoria and UBC researchers studied crash statistics before and after the Immediate Roadside Prohibition program took effect and concluded there has also been a 23 per cent drop in injuries and 19.5 per cent less property damage stemming from alcohol-related crashes. “The goals of improved road safety by the provincial government were achieved,” the report said, despite the “partial decriminalization” of impaired driving in B.C. that accompanied the change. According to the study, 2,890 drivers were charged with impaired driving after the policy change, compared to 9,070 in the year prior to implementation –  a 68 per cent drop. It notes roadside pen-

alties are enforced immediately and seen as more severe – particularly at the lower alcohol levels –  while it’s a long, difficult and uncertain process to convicted drunk drivers in court. Researchers said they can’t tell for certain if the new penalties themselves or the publicity about them are most responsible for the change in behaviour. Criminal charges are still more likely with repeat offenders, according to the study. It notes police can’t issue roadside penalties for crashes they didn’t witness, so criminal charges are the only option in those cases. Provincial politicians have promoted the change as a life-saver, but they also acknowledge it has helped relieve some pressure on the congested justice system. Officials at the Centre for Addictions Research said the findings suggest other provinces should follow B.C.’s lead. B.C. Civil Liberties Association executive director Josh Patterson said the new approach runs counter to the presumption of innocence in our society. “We don’t think that police should be in the position of giving out punishment,” he said. “We think that is the job of the courts.” B.C.’s program was revised to require the right to two breath tests, with the lowest reading being used, and an appeal procedure is now in place. Legal challenges that aim to overturn the system are still before the courts.

Marijuana reform campaign refused billboards by Pattison company Sensible B.C. gearing up for petition sign-up blitz this fall by J eff Nagel Black Press

Marijuana reform campaigners say they’ve been denied billboard advertising space with B.C.’s biggest outdoor ad firm in the key months leading up to their signature drive to force a provincial referendum.

No explanation for the refusal has been given, even though the organization offered to change the proposed wording or remove the marijuana leaf image.

second wave of an automated phone dialing campaign to reach out to every B.C. household in search of volunteers. More than 2,000 new volunteers signed up in the first round. They, in turn, are working phone banks and hitting up summer festivals, farmers’ markets and other outdoor events to find more recruits. “It’s by no means guaranteed,” Larsen said, noting only the Fight HST initiative ever reached the referendum stage. “It’s a very, very challenging campaign.” Larsen said one obstacle is the stigma of pot reform, despite a high-profile group of supporters that include public health officers and former attorneysgeneral. “People are afraid of being judged for supporting our issue,” he said. “People say ‘I really want to support you but I can’t put up a marijuana poster in my workplace’ or ‘I can’t support you in my storefront window.’” But the campaign that got started on Larsen’s credit cards has also hit lucky breaks. The biggest was last year’s $25-million lottery win for Terrace pot activist Bob Erb, who has pledged several hundred thousand dollars to match Sensible B.C. campaign donations.

ridings, so we’re going to need a lot of signatures there,” Larsen said. “We were looking at a provincial campaign in a lot of different areas.” The initiative petition campaign is expected to start in mid-September, giving volunteers 90 days to sign up 10 per cent of voters in each riding. If they clear that hurdle, a province-wide referendum would be held in 2014 to decriminalize marijuana possession and implement the Sensible Policing Act blocking police enforcement. No explanation for the refusal has been given, Larsen said, adding he offered to change the proposed wording or remove the marijuana leaf image. Sensible B.C. has one electronic billboard with that design up in West Vancouver with a competing firm. A representative at Pattison Outdoors could not be reached for comment. Larsen said Pattison is the largest signage provider in many communities and virtually the only option in some areas. He said they’ll look to other providers and methods of reaching people. “This isn’t a make-orbreak problem for us,” Larsen said. “It’s a small setback.” Sensible B.C. is in the

able extras are coordinated province-wide.” The rationale for the charge is that residential care is a person’s home, Jabs said, and while the public health system covers the cost of medical and health care needs, care home residents should pay for personal equipment and supplies as they would if they lived in the community. Fraser Health’s notification letter indicates new residents arriving at its facilities after Sept. 1 “will be required to purchase or rent equipment from an external supplier.”

A wheelchair rental fee being imposed by Lower Mainland health authorities in residential care homes has no precedent in B.C. after all, nor any clear reason for its timing. Health ministry officials have backtracked on their initial claim the planned $25-a-month fee for seniors in publicly run residential care homes is already in place in some areas outside the Lower Mainland. In fact, the Northern, Interior and Vancouver Island health authorities have been considering a similar fee, but have yet to impose one, nor have they gone as far as issuing notifications to residents, as Fraser Health has done. The fee is to recoup the cost of maintaining wheelchairs that, until now, have been provided for free at publicly operated care homes to residents who don’t have their own. Many privately oper-

ful and laughable” for Fraser Health to treat wheelchair access as a feefor-service item like cable TV in a seniors’ home. Ministry spokesman Ryan Jabs maintained the 2011 and 2012 revisions clarified the manual and made it clear no one will be denied a wheelchair if they can’t afford to pay the fee. Asked again if health authorities or the province are imposing the fee, Jabs said the decision to charge is up to the health authorities, but they are all working with the ministry “to ensure that charges for allow-

ated care homes have had such fees for years. And it remains unclear what has triggered the move now. Ministry officials previously pointed to an Oct. 2012 update of a policy manual outlining allowable fees for residents in care, saying the health authorities are now coming into line with that change. Except that there was no change. The provision for fees on “chargeable items” such as wheelchairs and canes already existed with identical wording in earlier April 2011 and January 2010 versions of the Home and Community Care policy manual. “The 2010 and 2011 policies contain the same sections, using the same language, delivering the same meaning on what the health authorities could charge for a wheelchair,” B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix said. “What we’re seeing is Fraser Health responding to the government’s unbalanced budget –  after the election, of course, which presumably was part of the instructions – and imposing these charges now.” Dix said it’s “disrespect-

“There is no outbreak and I want to reassure residents of the Lower Mainland that there is no risk to the public or to residents in our facilities.” Paul Van Buynder, Fraser Health Three more possible case were investigated by Fraser over the past year but are considered unlikely to be CJD. CJD victims die about a year after symptoms appear. They first show psychiatric problems like anxiety or depression, followed by persistent pain or odd sensations, unsteady or jerky walking, progressive dementia and eventual inability to move or speak.

B.C.’s #1-SELLING ^ CROSSOVER

Three suspected Lower Mainland cases of a degenerative brain-wasting disease have nothing to do with mad cow disease or the consumption of beef, say public health officials. One resident in the Fraser Health region is dead of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and two others who are ill are believed to have it. “I want to be clear there is absolutely no evidence that these three confirmed or probable cases are linked to food consumption,” said Paul Van Buynder, Fraser Health’s chief medical health officer. He said these are cases of “classical” CJD that appear every year, albeit rarely, at a rate of one or two per million. Tests have ruled out the variant form of CJD linked to consumption of beef from cattle infected with mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy). “There has never been a home-grown case of variant CJD in Canada so this is not surprising,” Van Buynder said. He said some media and social media reports wrongly referred to the local cases as “human mad cow disease.” About 30 Canadians a year contract the standard form of CJD.

Van Buynder said the three cases in Fraser are one or two more than might normally be expected here in a year, but still within what’s statistically likely. “There is no outbreak and I want to reassure residents of the Lower Mainland that there is no risk to the public or to residents in our facilities.” The patients are from different Fraser region cities and settings, he said, and a review so far has not found any links to suggest a common source of the neurological disorder.

Premier cancels political staff raises I want to go to by To m Fletch e r Black Press

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark has rolled back salary increases for political staff, after getting an earful from voters. Clark told reporters Wednesday that salary increases for her chief of staff and new positions with the same title in ministers’ offices will not go ahead. “I have heard a lot from British Columbians in the last week about this issue of changing the pay scales and pay levels for political staff, so today I am rescinding those changes, because leadership means listening to people,” Clark said. “Although the original change would have meant we were underspending the budget by $100,000, I’ve heard loud and clear that people didn’t like it.” The lone exception is Clark’s new deputy chief of staff, Michele Cadario, hired for the premier’s office after serving as deputy campaign manager for the B.C. Liberal election campaign. Cadario will receive a salary of $195,148 to do the operations and policy roles formerly done by two people. Dan Doyle, Clark’s chief

Clark still has to win a byelection in Kelowna for a seat in Victoria. of staff, remains at the same salary as Cadario. A government spokesman said Doyle never accepted any raise, but recommended the maximum for his position be increased to $230,000 to attract the best candidate for his successor. The top rate for ministry chiefs of staff, formerly ministerial assistants, will remain at $94,500 a year. The top rate for them was first increased to $105,000, then rolled back to $102,000 before being cancelled. Five of the people appointed to those jobs have had raises cancelled. NDP leader Adrian Dix, contacted in Kelowna, where he is campaigning in a byelection where Clark

hopes to win a seat, said the raises show the government is “tone deaf ” to the concerns of ordinary people. Dix said the decision to scrap the raises is “the first victory for Carole Gordon,” the NDP candidate in the Westside-Kelowna byelection. Gordon is running in the byelection called for July 10, after Clark was defeated by NDP candidate David Eby in a bid to retain her Vancouver-Point Grey seat. In the May 14 general election, Gordon lost by nearly a two-to-one margin to B.C. Liberal incumbent Ben Stewart, who resigned last week to allow Clark to run.

or blanket for later on when a cool breeze rises from the river. This year the Mr. Cool Ice Cream Cart will be providing refreshments. For the last few years we have re-arranged the set-up, with the musicians facing away from the river, giving the audience the pleasure of watching the ever varied flow of the Fraser River, tug boats with log booms or gravel loads, and small pleasure craft. On a good night you may see the sunset, the sky streaked with coloured clouds, the moon rise and birds flying overhead along with airplanes. As Bernice Gehring, the original founder of the concerts always says, it is magic.

Because showing off your car in the garage isn’t as much fun!

Metro short lists waste-to-energy bidders by Jef f Nage l Black Press

The company that operates Metro Vancouver’s existing garbage incinerator is one of several bidders now short-listed by the regional district to build a new waste-to-energy plant. Covanta Energy has hedged its bets with two proposals that were short-listed by Metro –  one for a mass-burn incinerator and the other to build a gasification plant. A total of 10 proposals out of the 22 received have been short-listed based on proponents’ proven track record converting garbage into energy and the expertise of their teams. Metro intends to add 370,000 tonnes per year of new waste-to-energy capacity, but the project is controversial and under steady attack from Fraser Valley critics over air quality concerns as well as others who see incineration as a threat to increased recycling. Seven of the 10 proposals are for massburn incinerators. Besides Covanta, they include engineering giant Aecom, Plenary Group Canada, Energy Answers International, Termomeccanica Ecologia, Wheelabrator Technologies and Aquilini Renewable Energy. Aquilini has been in talks with the Tsawwasen First Nation to potentially base an incinerator on treaty lands there. Another short-listed proponent –  Lehigh Cement –  proposes to pre-process garbage as refuse-derived fuel and

then burn it at its Delta cement plant on River Road at Tilbury Island, offsetting its use of either coal or natural gas. Energy Answers’ incinerator proposal would also pre-process waste as refuse-derived fuel (RDF). RDF systems typically dry garbage, remove inert materials and otherwise process the waste so it burns better and hotter. The only other shortlisted proponent, Mustang JFE, proposes to combine an RDF approach with anerobic digestion of organics along with gasification. According to a Metro report, gasification systems typically convert waste to a gas stream that is directly combusted or can be converted into a syngas, which can be converted into a fuel or other product. Proponents that didn’t make Metro’s short list include Chilliwack Bioenergy Group, as well as several other firms, some of which proposed lesser known technologies. Some Metro directors had previously voiced concern the process would ultimately result in a mass-burn incinerator, rather than the use of emerging alternative waste-to-energy technologies. The Metro staff report on the short list notes Metro hired a thirdparty expert panel and a fairness advisor to ensure the procurement process is not biased in favour of any particular technology. The fairness advisor and thirdparty expert panel both endorsed the process to rate proponents and the outcome so far.

TransLink is doubling down on the concept of road pricing, arguing it should apply not just to cars to control congestion at the busiest times, but also to transit riders to make more efficient use of buses and SkyTrain as well. A revision of TransLink’s longrange regional transportation strategy is going to public consultation over the next two months and it reinforces the idea of using time-ofuse pricing tools to make the most of investments. The Transportation 2045 plan will argue the number of vehicle trips travelled in the region must climb no higher if Metro Vancouver is to remain a livable region and not end up mired in gridlock. Capping car travel will be hard. The overall number of trips taken is projected to climb 50 per cent over the next three decades as a million more Metro Vancouverites arrive, all criss-crossing the region to get to 500,000 more jobs. So planners say the proportion of trips by transit, cycling and walking must rise at a much faster rate from 27 per cent now to 50 per cent, while the share of trips by car falls. Building more rapid transit lines is part of the strategy – TransLink estimates up to $23 billion is needed to expand the system over 30 years. The first $5 billion would merely maintain what already exists. But another plank in the document says TransLink should “price roads

and transit for fairness, efficiency and revenue.” TransLink strategic planning vicepresident Bob Paddon said road pricing has been in long-range plans for 20 years, but it’s now becoming critical to implement. Area mayors also want to explore road pricing, where drivers might pay more to drive on major routes depending on the time of day or severity of congestion. TransLink’s draft document says pricing can cut congestion at peak times while offering users a choice. “Those who choose to forego a trip, bundle some trips together, travel at a less busy time, use a less busy route or travel by another mode will be rewarded with savings in time and money,” it says. Paddon said TransLink’s new Compass card system could make it possible to emulate Washington D.C., where subway riders pay based on both the distance travelled and by the time of day. “The farther you go, the more you pay,” Paddon said. “And if you want to go at the peak of rush hour you pay more.” He said airlines also make passengers pay more for the last seats as a plane fills up, while offering discounts to sell seats on underused routes or at less popular times. Drivers will respond to price signals, he suggests, pointing to the success of the #555 bus over the new Port Mann Bridge. Its initial ridership has doubled – it now averages 73 per cent full – as 1,600 passengers a day ride over the bridge without paying the new toll.

Act on arthritis sooner, not later F

or many years, my mother knit socks, scarves, hats, sweaters and a few other items that she either sent to relatives or donated to the various church sales that went on throughout the year.  When she wasn’t reading, she was knitting.  I guess that explains why we never had a cat. I moved from home before I was out of my teens, so I have no idea when that changed, but at some point I remember noticing that she wasn’t knitting anymore.  When I asked her, she simply said she couldn’t  because her fingers were too stiff. When she held her hand up, I could see some deformity in her fingers.  She explained that she had some rheumatoid arthritis and it made the knitting difficult and painful. Like most who don’t understand the condition, I figured that overuse of her joints for years had caused the arthritis.  In fact, arthritis is a bit of an umbrella term that covers somewhere in the neighbourhood of 100 different diseases.  The common denominator is that they all tend to cause inflammation in the joints and pain is the common symptom. While osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and tends to be related to age, even teenagers can develop

A jump in natural gas rates in the Lower Mainland means most households using gas will pay about $61 more each year. The B.C.

Appia Developments to release second phase at SOLO District

Living among the clouds at Altus Appia Developments’ SOLO District will add another gem to the neighbourhood when it launches sales of its newest phase on June 22. Altus will be the tallest building in Burnaby at 550 feet, with office space on the first 14 floors and residential from 200 feet up. “The views start from the bottom (residential) floor,” says Appia Sales and Marketing Manager Lisa Murrell. SOLO District (which stands for South Of Lougheed) welcomed Altus with a preview event on June 15 that had many potential buyers visit the SOLO District Presentation Centre to see what Altus has to offer. With condominium homes ranging from

approximately 516 to about 1,700 square feet in a variety of floorplans, it won’t be hard to find your perfect home. Something that sets Altus apart are the choices it offers for threebedroom units, which is something buyers have been asking for and Appia is happy to be able to provide in this new phase of SOLO District. In the homes themselves, you’ll find imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry and polished quartz countertops in the kitchens and bathrooms, along with laminate flooring in the living areas, nine-foot

living or play space. The master ensuite features a huge stand-alone claw-foot tub made for relaxing after a day on the slopes, along with a gorgeous walk-in shower with rain shower head. The kids and even adult guests will enjoy the bunk room that holds four bunk beds and plenty of space to play. A pool table is part of the prize package, furnished by Coast Spas Lifestyles. The furniture and accessories are also part of the home, from Lane Home Furnishings. The winner will also receive appliances from Coast Wholesale Appliances, luxurious outdoor furnishings from American Home & Patio, a $2,500 grocery package from IGA and one year of house cleaning from Mini Maid. One of the most impressive parts of the home is the contemporary glass walk-in wine cellar in the foyer. A glass

of wine from your own private cellar will be the perfect way to end your day on the hill. Faliszewski also notes that there is an indoor-outdoor fireplace in the greatroom that you’ll want to curl up in front of at the end of the day. “The deck (on the lower floor) wraps all the way around the outside of the house,” he says. “You can walk through the main rooms and then into your bedroom.” Tickets for the home can be purchased online, via phone at 604252-3688 or toll-free at 1-877-946-4663 or at the Fair at the PNE itself between Aug. 17 and Sept. 2. The winner will be drawn on Sept. 5. You can preview the home between July 12 and 14, July 21, July 28, and Aug. 4. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.pne.ca/ pneprizehome.

‘Perfect for entertaining’

PNE Prize Home an iconic B.C. tradition By Kerry Vital

The PNE Prize Home has been around since 1934 and is an integral part of the annual summer event. Now, the 2013 home is showcasing exactly why everyone loves this lottery. “We’re really excited about this year’s home,” says PNE spokesperson Laura Ballance. “This is the most affordable home lottery in British Columbia and there’s a lot of anticipation around it.” For the second year in a row, the home is being decorated by interior designer Jillian Harris. She has starred on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, hosted Canada’s Handyman Challenge and is currently co-hosting Love It or List It Vancouver. “Jillian did a fantastic job last year,” Ballance says. “It’s (wonderful) to have her back.” This year’s home is over 3,000 square feet, designed and built by Britco. After someone wins it, it will be relocated to Sun Peaks Resort. “It’s a fun project for us,” says Tom Faliszewski, manager of special projects for Britco. “The Fair at the PNE is an iconic event in Vancouver, and the Prize Home is a historic tradtion synonymous with The Fair.”

The home is built in an open-plan style, with a large greatroom and French doors to the exterior decks. “It’s perfect for entertaining,” Faliszewski says. “It has a very spacious feel to it and feels much larger than it is.” He’s not exaggerating. With its 10-foot ceilings on the main floor and nine-foot ceilings on the upper floor, the home feels incredibly open and airy. Once relocated, the home will be right next door to last year’s PNE Prize Home, also built by Britco. The location is truly one of the best parts of the home, since it will feature stunning views over the ski and snowboard trails, surrounding mountains and valley. “We try to do something different every year,” Faliszewski says. This year, Britco decided to put the master bedroom on the main floor, and include a huge upper deck on the second floor with a hot tub and a covered area that Faliszewski says is almost like a completely separate

We’re really excited about this year’s home,” says PNE spokesperson Laura Ballance.

The home was designed by interior designer Jillian Harris again this year, and is spectacular as always. Among the features are a contemporary glass wine cellar, top, an indoor-outdoor fireplace, above with Harris, and a luxurious claw-foot tub in the master bathroom, left.

SOLO District to change the landscape of Burnaby SOLO District is perfectly situated for transit, shopping, education and leisure activities. The Brentwood Skytrain station is just steps away, along with Brentwood Town Centre. “There are so many things around here,” Murrell says. “It’s just perfect.” The proximity to downtown Vancouver is also one of the highlights of SOLO District, especially for those looking to commute or if you’re just in the mood to sample the nightlife. Homes at Altus start at $293,900. For more information about Altus and SOLO District, visit www.solodistrict.com or call 604-298-8800.

ceilings and a full-size stacking washer/dryer. The bathrooms also have luxurious soaker tubs (with an enclosed glass shower in some ensuites) and large porcelain floor tiles and wall tile tub surround. All of the homes at SOLO will be heated and cooled via geothermal heat exchange, which uses stored energy from the earth and is incredibly efficient. FortisBC notes that buyers will see great cost savings compared to conventional buildings, and less maintenance will be required, which will lend homeowners greater peace of mind. Part of the appeal is the huge amenity space that Appia is calling Club 55 with a barbecue area, full kitchen, media area and billiards and ping-pong tables and generous outdoor deck space all for residents of Altus, to be located on the top floor

SOLO District itself is one of the most exciting properties in the Lower Mainland real estate market. It will eventually be comprised of four stunning residential towers and over 1,400 homes. Construction is currently ongoing at the first phase, Stratus, with future phases Cirrus and Aerius to come. The community will also include Burnaby’s first Whole Foods, commercial opportunities, office space and tons of green space. “There are several other exciting anchor tenants to be announced,” says Murrell. “This is a very, very cool community.” Walkability was one of the more important aspects, Murrell says. “There’s everything you could possibly need here,” she notes. “It’s been really well-received by the community.”

Please don’t hack the hydrangeas F

ew plants endure such masochistic pruning as the common Mophead Hydrangea, or H. macrophylla. The reason being is that we purchase these cute, one-gallon plants of standard varieties such as ‘Nikko Blue’, ‘Kluis Superba’ and Gardening ‘Teller Red’ – fully expecting that they will Mike Lascelle remain a mere two feet tall and wide for the rest of their lives. Several years and three to four feet later, these same spectacular shrubs that we’ve nurtured and enjoyed each summer suddenly get a starring role in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, leaving little behind in the way of flowering wood. What more gardeners should be aware of are the many compact cultivars of Hydrangea macrophylla: ‘Pia’ (pink, matures at two feet high and wide); ‘Adria’ (blue, matures at three feet high and wide); or the CityLine series (available in a wide range of colours), which grows to a mere three feet high and three to four feet wide – so you don’t actually have to hack them into submission. Your other option is to choose reblooming or remontant types that, despite a heavy spring pruning, will still flower on new wood later in the season. This way you can control the size without losing all the blooms that you would on Hydrangeas that only flower on last year’s wood. The original repeat-bloomer Endless Summer (three to five feet high), is still one of

in gardens prone to hackers. These bear cone-shaped flowers on new wood (from midsummer) and have excellent cold hardiness to Zone 3. It is these last two attributes that makes them such good candidates for growing in large containers, as well as being much more sun tolerant than standard Mophead hydrangeas. Your compact choices here include ‘Bombshell’ (abundant smaller white blooms, 3’ high), Little Lime (lime green flowers, three to four feet high with pruning) and BOBO (white fading to pink, three feet high). The midsummer to autumn blooming Oakleaf hydrangea (H. quercifolia, Zone 5) further extends the flowering season and adds textural interest with its oak-shaped leaves and fall foliar colours. ‘Little Honey’ (three to four feet high) is a golden-leaved form that is best grown in just morning sun (or it may scorch), featuring white cone-shaped flowers and reddishorange autumn tones. ‘PeeWee’ (three to four feet high) bears white cone-shaped blossoms that fade to pink, and more intense autumn colours of burgundy-bronze to a rich maroon-purple. So now that I’ve given you 10 good reasons (or dwarf cultivar selections) not to hack your hydrangeas, I expect to hear far fewer chainsaws come pruning time. (Clockwise from top left) Endless Summer, Double Delights, Bombshell and Little Lime. the best, with huge, long-lasting true blue rounded blossoms, when grown in acidic soils. New on the local market this year is the Double Delights ‘Star Gazer’ (three to four

feet high), with delicate ringed lacecap blooms of pink florets edged in white, which flower from summer through to fall. Hydrangea paniculata, or PeeGee-type hydrangeas, are another useful species to grow

Pitt player lands a Plumb job

Rich Lam, UBC Thunderbirds

UBC Thunderbirds all-star guard Doug Plumb will be graduating to the professional ranks of Europe, having caught on with one of the top Hangarian teams.

Doug Plumb’s outstanding CIS career has won him a spot on a European pro team After a stellar university basketball career, UBC Thunderbird Doug Plumb has signed a contract to play professionally in Europe. Plumb, who is from Pitt Meadows and still has family here, will join Zalakerámia ZTE KK of the Nemzeti Bajnokság I/A, the top league in Hungary. Basketball has been such a huge part of Plumb’s life, and he didn’t want it to be over. “I had more sleepless nights this year, not knowing what I was going to do,” he admitted. To be paid to play basketball is a dream for any college player, but most leagues limit the number of import players allowed, and those spots generally go to American players coming out of NCAA programs. “For a little, skinny white kid from Pitt Meadows to get this experience is pretty rare. I’m excited.” His new club has won four national titles, with

the most recent coming in 2010. It is located in Zalaegerszeg, a city of about 62,000 people. “I’m very excited to be continuing my career with ZTE KK,” said Plumb. “The organization has a rich history of success and I am looking forward to helping them compete and contend for the Hungarian league title.” Plumb scored 1326 points in 97 non-conference, regular season and playoff appearances with UBC for an average of 13.7 points a game. He also grabbed 457 rebounds (4.7 per game) over his time with the T-Birds. This past season, the 6’4” guard was a first team Canada West all-star and a second team CIS AllCanadian, after leading his squad to a conference championship and a berth to the CIS Final Eight in Ottawa. He averaged 14.9 points and 5.2 rebounds a game in his last season. The 25-year-old has studied psychology. He is hoping to one day join the coaching ranks, and said having professional experience can only help his resume.

Plumb also played college ball with Fraser Valley (CIS) and Minnesota State (NCAA) before becoming a Thunderbird. “We are thrilled for Doug that he will continue his basketball career as a professional athlete,” said UBC head coach Kevin Hanson. “He has landed on a top team in a great league. He has worked exceptionally hard to get to this stage of his career and we are all very excited for him. We wish him the best as he enters this next stage of his life.” Plumb joins several other UBC graduates already in the professional ranks. Nathan Yu (Hong Kong), Alex Murphy (Denmark), Matt Rachar (Austria), Kamar Burke and Josh Whyte (both NBL-Canada) are all representing UBC and the CIS in basketball leagues around the world. “I would like to ride this out as long as I can – keep playing ball, and see the world,” said Plumb. “It doesn’t get any better than that for me.”

Teen cyclist continues to improve, and on a winning streak Maggie Coles-Lyster, 14, of Maple Ridge, has been racing to success across B.C. and the Pacific Northwest this season. She has competed well above her Under-15 age class, against Senior women over 19, with her most recent victories earned May 31 through June 2 in Victoria at the Robert Cameron Law Cycling Series. She won all three competitions in the stage race.   Coles-Lyster’s significant improvements this season are due to physical and mental factors, like being another year older, fitter, and more experi-

enced. But the young speedster credits her invigorated drive to her late coach, Jeremy Storie, who tragically passed away in February. In fact, she dedicated this past weekend’s success in Victoria to Storie, who always encouraged his athletes to make the competitions more exciting for racers and spectators alike by animating the races with attacks and gutsy tactics. Coles-Lyster took her coach and mentor’s words to heart and puts them into practice in every race she enters. “If she’s in the race, everyone knows

Maggie’s going to attack,” said ColesLyster’s father, Barry Lyster, who owns Maple Ridge’s Local Ride Bike Shop. And attack she did, relentlessly, during both Saturday’s Westhills Cycling Classic road race and Sunday’s Bastion Square Grand Prix. Her efforts in each race succeeded in splintering the field and putting the odds in her favour at the finish. In the 40km road race, Coles-Lyster reached the line first with only one other rider in contact, whom she craftily outsprinted. In Sunday’s Bastion Square Grand

Prix, her hard pace and aggressive attacks pared the group down to four riders and she won the final sprint after 15 laps of the challenging circuit.   In Friday evening’s 5km Rumble individual time trial, the only possible tactic was all-out pedaling as she raced against the clock and powered out a personal best time and the win. Coles-Lyster continued to train hard and earned another impressive result at the Mutual of Enumclaw Stage Race, May 18-19, in Enumclaw, WA. She competed in a strong field of Cat 4 women to finish third overall.

Atoms silver in final tourney The 2002 Ridge Meadows Roughnecks hockey team completed their spring schedule for the 2013 spring season by winning a silver medal at the Valley Cup in north Surrey. The Atom Roughnecks played tough teams from Semiahmoo, Burnaby, Vancouver and Langley, losing two of the four opening round-robin games and finishing third in their division. In the semi-final game against the EHS Knights from Semiahmoo. After going down by a goal, they scored five unanswered, securing their spot in the gold medal game. Their opponents in the gold medal game was the Valley Chiefs, a strong, Langley-based team that went undefeated in the tournament, and had earlier beaten Roughnecks by a wide margin. Having no expectations of winning, the Roughnecks played their hearts out, making this their game of the season. They held their opponents at bay with great bravery in blocking shots and with some amazing reaction saves by goalie Justin Falconer. Mid-way through the second period, the Roughnecks gave up a power play goal. A second goal late in the third period sealed matters, and Roughnecks had to be content with silver. This result adds to the team’s silver medal at the Canlan Spring Showdown and gold at the Steveston Meltdown. Goalie Justin Falconer made 38 saves in the gold medal game alone and was ably supported by Evan Jonsen in a number of other games. Through six games the Roughnecks found the net 26 times. Winger Vincent Timperio contributed the most points with four goals and five assists, each of Alex Trosthiem, Dawson Ignatieff and Kyle Sackmann contributed five goals, while Caleb Douglas helped create seven goals.

Pushing stroller an under-appreciated calorie burner

T

he likelihood for women to get the minimum exercise required to stay healthy after delivering a baby is less than similar women without kids. A study in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport cites this tendency and highlights the importance of losing postpartum weight to avoid long-term problems like obesity, cardiovascular risk factors and diabetes. Unfortunately there may be unrealistic expectations from the media as celebrities seem to get back to pre-pregnancy weight in very short order and societal pressures of a mother to be able to ‘have it all’ don’t help. But getting exercise and staying as fit as possible is healthy for the mother, gives her more energy and is ultimately healthy for the baby. A study done by researchers at the University of Wisconsin investigated the effect of walking while pushing

a baby stroller in order pushing a stroller comto determine how much pared to walking alone, it might contribute to but the effect was more the health and dramatic than fitness of the expected. mother. The study This might found that exbe an underercise intensity appreciated and calorie activity that burn were apseems munproximately 18 dane and if percent higher some mothers when walking are unable to at 3 MPH and do much of 20 per cent their stanhigher when Kinected dard exercise Kerry Senchyna walking with a routines at the stroller at 3.5 gym, it could mph. be a valuable tool to use Keep in mind that for to get back on track. many people 3.5 MPH The study tested might be considered a a number of young moderate to brisk walk. women by performParticipants burned ing a maximal exercise 6.2 calories per minute test on a treadmill while pushing a stroller monitoring heart rate, at 3 mph, and then 7.4 oxygen consumption calories per minute and perceived exertion while pushing a stroller (how hard they ‘felt’ at 3.5 mph.

Walking burned ing a stroller increased more calories when the subject’s heart rates

by about six percent with every 2.5 percent increase in uphill grade. The researchers tested uphill grades of 2.5, 5 and 7.5 percent grades. The values obtained in the study were almost twice as high as previous values published in the standardized guides and tables. They had published walking with a stroller as 2.5 METS when in fact it is between 4 and 5 METS. Fitness guidelines recommend that people exercise between 55 and 60 per cent of their maximum heart rate in order to improve cardiovascular fitness and will also contribute weight loss as well. Pushing a stroller with a baby on flat ground at 3.5 MPH meets those criteria, and walking on a hill or running would increase the exercise benefits even more. As far as losing weight is concerned, there are other things you can do to help. An exclusively breastfed baby needs around 500 to 800 calories a

day for healthy growth and development. Sustaining a baby on breast milk means you are putting out your own calories just by feeding your child, and the baby is obtaining vital nutrients and getting important physical contact. Adjusting your dietary intake can help a great deal as well. When you were

pregnant, you might have adjusted your eating habits to support your baby’s growth and development. After pregnancy, proper nutrition is still important – especially if you’re breast-feeding. Getting outdoors and walking (or running) with your baby in a stroller can deliver much-needed exercise as well as provide the

baby and you with an outing. As always, stay in touch with your family doctor for direction and guidance on all health matters. Kerry Senchyna holds a bachelor of science degree in kinesiology and is owner of West Coast Kinesiology in Maple Ridge (westcoastkinesiology.com).
