Guide dogs move into new home ❙ Robert Mangelsdorf editor email@example.com
The province’s only guide dog organization moved into it’s new headquarters in Ladner last month, and staff hope the new facility will allow them to expand their operations. B.C. and Alberta Guide Dog Services has called South Delta home since 1996, and its new home on a one-acre lot on Ladner Trunk Road will allow the non-profit to service more blind and autistic Canadians, says CEO William Thornton. “This is a huge upgrade for us,” he said. “Right now we have a very long waiting list, and we would like to see that come down.” The new facility features 20 per cent more square-footage, and includes an onsite training facility, vet clinic, delivery rooms, and the organization’s administration office. Breeding mothers spend five to six weeks at the facility under the care of staff and volunteers, while the puppies remain there until they are seven weeks old before being handed over to volunteer host families who help train the dogs.
“We made the decision not to raise them in kennels and that will continue,” said Thornton. At any given time, B.C. and Alberta Guide Dog Services has close to 30 dogs being trained, and there is currently a two- to four-year wait to receive one. While the organization provides guide dogs and autism support dogs free of charge, the process to train them generally lasts two years, and costs more than $35,000. However, B.C. and Alberta Guide Dog Services operates solely on grants and donations, and receives no ongoing funding from the provincial government. The new facility was made possible thanks to a long-time donor who made a substantial gift towards its purchase. With the sale of the old facility, Thornton says the organization will be mortgage free. “We’re very happy to stay here in South Delta,” he said. “The community has always been very supportive of what we do.” Thornton was originally a police dog handler in his native

But if the organization wants to keep up with demand, they need to at least double the amount of dogs being trained. B.C. and Alberta Guide Dog
Services’ previous headquarters at the end of 60B Street in Ladner was in a house on a standard lot in a residential neighbourhood and was barely suitable for its current needs. Thornton hopes to expand the new facility with the construction of a 10,000 squarefoot breeding, training, and education centre. The building would include a Currently, B.C. and Alberta Guide Dog Services breeds close to 40 puppies annually, with only 60 per cent going on to become service dogs. Thornton would like to see that increase to 100 puppies bred annually. The new breeding centre is still in its conceptual phase, but will likely require millions in fundraising and grants to become a reality. B.C. and Alberta Guide Dog Services is holding its annual golf tournament fundraiser at Beach Grove Golf Club, hosted by Four-time Stanley Cup winner and Hockey Hall of Fame broadcaster Howie Meeker.

Public hearing called into DPD misconduct claims ❙ Robert Mangelsdorf editor firstname.lastname@example.org
The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner announced Wednesday it will be holding a public hearing into allegations of police misconduct by two members of the Delta Police Department. Const. Aaron Hill and Const. Aaron McRae of the Delta Police Department are alleged to have used unnecessary force against Edward Pecaskie during an incident that took place on Sept. 17, 2011. Pecaskie filed a complaint with the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner, the civilian oversight body for municipal police in B.C., claiming
Hill tackled him off of his bike and repeatedly smashed his face into the ground, while McRae kicked Pecaskie in the ribs. Pecaskie also alleges his iPod and bicycle were damaged in the incident. Pecaskie’s complaint was investigated by the Professional Standards Section of the Delta Police Department for investigation. Insp. Ian MacWilliams found Pecaskie’s allegations of abuse of authority, damage to property, and deceit to be without merit, while the allegation of neglect of duty appeared to be substantiated by the evidence. However, in December of last year, the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner
tasked retired provincial court judge Jakob S. De Villiers with reviewing the matter after determining there was a reasonable basis to believe the DPD’s decision was incorrect. In June, De Villiers released his findings, agreeing with the DPD’s assessment that Pecaskie’s allegations of abuse of authority, damage to property, and deceit had not been proven. However, in his decision to call a public hearing, B.C. Police Complaint Commissioner Stan T. Lowe stated, there is a reasonable basis to believe De Villiers’ findings are incorrect. Specifically, Lowe states that De Villiers erred in his findings by not cross examining the officers involved, and the fact
Pecaskie and potential witnesses didn’t participate in the proceeding, because there was no request for their attendance by the officers. “In my respectful view, [De Villiers] was procedurally mistaken in his view that he could not question the members in his role as Discipline Authority,” Lowe stated. “[T]he accountability of the proceedings has been significantly diminished, and the search for truth substantially compromised.” Given the seriousness of the allegations, Lowe stated a public hearing “is required to preserve or restore public confidence in the investigation of misconduct and the administration of police discipline.”
Delta Police spokesperson Ciaran Feenan said the officers are still on active duty as patrol members, and any disciplinary action taken against them will depend on the outcome of the public hearing. “The Police Act defines how these proceedings are investigated and both members have participated in the investigation from the onset, and have done so freely,” said Feenan. “The Delta Police Department is very supportive of civilian oversight. We’re held to a higher standard of accountability, not only through the Police Act, but with our own professional standards and core values, our civilian police board, and ultimately the public.”

MK Delta Lands head back to drawing board ❙ Adrian MacNair reporter email@example.com
The developers behind a proposed residential and commercial development at the corner of Highway 91 and 72nd Avenue will change their application and seek more public input prior to coming back with a new proposal. Joanne Barnett, president of MK Delta Lands Group, said she’s satisfied the application is moving forward following a Metro Vancouver board meeting two weeks ago that indicated a public hearing will need to be held in Delta first. However, Barnett said Delta did the right thing by approaching the regional government first. “My understanding is that the process which Delta followed and requested is the actual process, but I guess the board in its wisdom is seeing some issues with that,” she said, adding it was inappropriate for the Metro board to chastise Delta for following the advice of its own staff. But Eliza Olson, president of the non-profit Burns Bog Conservation Society, disagrees and said Delta was trying to sidestep the proper process by going to Metro Vancouver first. “I can understand why the mayor would want to do that but it’s not telling Metro Vancouver what the will of the community is,” she said, adding if the zoning change was approved it would send a message to Delta that the development is a “done deal.” Olson has collected a 5,000-name petition against any development on the land, which she considers sensitive peatland that could be considered the “lagg” of the nearby 3,000 hectare Burns Bog Ecological Conservancy. ❙ Continued on P.4

Outlet mall turfed in new MK Delta Lands plan rezoning the land under the Regional Growth Strategy to “general urban” from “conservation and recreation.” Barnett said the company refine its plan based on public feedback, particularly with respect to the outlet mall, which has been scuttled. She said after meeting with members of the Sunshine Hills community she was convinced the mall wasn’t what people wanted. “So, we’re going to go back and reduce the scale of the commercial and make it the neighbourhood that was originally requested by the community,” she said. The new development application–expected to include over 900 units of housing and 14,000-square-meters of retail space–will involve many more months of public consultation. Olson said the public meetings aren’t meant to seek feedback but simply to “wear down the people” before the public hearing. But Barnett said she welcomes any and all input. “The environmental interests are what they are,” she said. “They have a role to play and we continue to be open to dialogue with them and hopefully at the end of the day they’ll be happy with the outcome.”

The land in question is currently zoned Industrial-3 Extraction which allows uses such as peat extraction, asphalt and concrete mixing. Although a legal opinion provided to the municipality in May indicated these uses are permissible today, MK Delta Lands has stated it does not have plans to pursue the permitted uses regardless of the status of the application. But Olson said the municipality has the ability to change the zoning now to prevent the company from ever changing its mind. “They can change the requirements within the zoning itself,” she said. “In fact, the Corporation of Delta amended that bylaw in 2007, which was three years after the conservation covenant.” Delta’s chief administrative officer George Harvie said the municipality attempted to buy the land from MK Delta Lands in 2004 while signing a conservation agreement over 2,000 hectares of Burns Bog but couldn’t come up with the money. MK Delta Lands will now seek municipal rezoning to mixed use residential which would also require approval from Metro Vancouver in

‘Affordable’ housing development in Ladner a step closer to reality ❙ Adrian MacNair firstname.lastname@example.org
A proposal to build a 30unit apartment building in Ladner that is being billed as “affordable housing” moved a step closer to adoption last week. Delta Council voted to waive the usual five per cent park land dedication fee so that the units can be sold at a lower cost. As well, the deferment of engineering and landscaping fees was approved under a restrictive covenant on title, which will be a no-build clause. Although an appraisal has not been submitted on the building, based on the 2013 assessed value of the land the waived fees amount to approximately $65,650. The applicant, non-profit housing developer Options for Homes of Greater Vancouver, had argued that by waiving these fees they could provide the lowest possible price on the market. “They’ll still be market units, they’ll be market-
ed to a different demographic, one that typically would not be able to afford a home but still be in the home market if they could get there a little bit cheaper,” said Coun. Robert Campbell, who voted in favour of fee deferment. Campbell said there’s no way to guess how affordable the units might actually be, but was satisfied they will provide an alternative in the market for buyers in Ladner. But not everybody on council was in agreement. “I guess having been in real estate many moons ago you will see that these homes will be purchased at whatever the market will bear and I don’t really see that there’s going to be any real substantial difference,” said Mayor Lois Jackson in opposition. Jackson said there isn’t any such thing as affordable housing in B.C., particularly the Lower Mainland, and expressed skepticism that it could happen in Ladner. “Maybe this apartment building will look better
than it is on paper but I had difficulty with the change in the design,” she said. “It doesn’t look like the village of Ladner at all.” Council gave third reading to the four-storey, 30unit apartment building at 5571 Ladner Trunk Road on June 11, 2012, but the owner requested a third reading extension in April to allow the new buyers–Options for Homes–additional time to determine the feasibility of the project. “This groundbreaking victory is the first of its kind in B.C., and the Corporation of Delta is leading the way,” said Omar Lalani of Options for Homes for Greater Vancouver, the local chapter of a Toronto-based affordable housing non-profit corporation that started in 1993. Options operates like any market-driven housing developer without subsidies or donation, and simply builds housing that is geared towards those looking for an af-
fordable home ownership option. The main difference between Options and a profit-driven developer is that the non-profit company provides down payment assistance for its home owners through a shared-appreciation mortgage. The Vancouver chapter for Options was opened in 2010 by Lalani and Philip Chou. “Ladner has a base of young professionals who are leaving town to relocate where housing is more affordable, and seniors in town are looking for ways to downsize, but cannot afford the high cost of housing in Ladner,” said Lalani.

Westshore spends $8.5 million to fight coal dust Coal port installs spray towers, sprinklers, and 30 km of underground piping to help reduce black dust ❙ Adrian MacNair reporter email@example.com
Delta’s coal port operators have spent $8.5 million on a new coal dust mitigation system that they hope will curtail complaints about the black powder spilling off trains and coal piles at the facility. David Crook, manager of engineering and environmental services for Westshore Terminals, spoke to Delta council on Monday, July 29, about the efforts the company has made in the past several months. Those efforts include two mobile air monitoring units which are able to read particulate matter in the wind and can be moved around on trailers. “Anecdotally, we hear a lot of complaints about the fact that there is dust in the community that is coal,” he said, adding that in the 17 investigations Westshore has conducted over the last 10 years, 13 resulted in finding no coal dust. Crook said a third party does the laboratory analysis for independent confirmation. The black material that collects on objects are often found to be other airborne particulate matter, such as diesel, soil, or fungus. “We don’t like being blamed for the stuff that is not ours,” he said. “We’ll take responsibility with the stuff that is.” The company has also installed 30 kilometres of underground piping for a new water spray system that feeds 94 low level sprays that can be used in normal wind conditions. For higher winds there are 12 new 40-metre water towers that keep the coal piles wet.
Although Westshore uses water from a Metro Vancouver supply, up to $5.5 million has been spent on a water recycling system to reuse the water after the coal has been removed. Rain water that falls during winter is also collected and reused. The company also responded to concerns about coal trains spilling dust on the journey to the terminal. A video posted to YouTube in May shows coal dust spewing from a Canadian Pacific train travelling through Delta. Crook said a new web cam installed at the 80th Street overpass allows the company to monitor whether trains are properly spraying the coal well enough to keep it from dusting off. “The vast majority of the trains have been well-behaved and have not been dusting, although we have seen a couple of dusting trains which we have referred back to the [coal] mines and the railways for further action,” he said. Denis Horgan, vice president of Westshore, said there was a train a few months ago that was dusting and they radioed to have it stopped in Kamloops and would not accept it until the coal had been properly sprayed. “It turned out their spraying system wasn’t working properly at the mine site, so they fixed that,” he said. Delta’s chief administrative officer George Harvie said that staff conducted dust monitoring at five separate sites in Delta over a 30-day period. The analysis will now be done by a certified laboratory and the results brought back to council in September. For those who have more questions about coal dust suppression, Westshore Terminals is providing public tours during the summer. Air quality in Tsawwassen is monitored by Metro Vancouver at Pebble Hill Park and the results are posted live at www.airmap.ca.

Family emergency keeps Bishop away from council Delta Coun. Sylvia Bishop has made public that the reason for her absences from some committee and council meetings recently is due to a family health emergency. “My husband has melanoma (skin cancer) which has advanced to a stage where he is now in care
at the Irene Thomas Hospice in Ladner,” she said in a statement. “He was admitted approximately [ five] weeks ago. “We are fortunate to have a hospice facility where patients receive end-of-life care and are kept comfortable with grace and dignity.
“I would like to thank members of Council, staff and the community for their continued support and understanding at this most difficult time for my family.“ Bishop is not asking for a leaveof-absence from her council duties at this time.

rofessional photographer and web designer Karla Wakefield has always been an animal lover, so when she decided to help give back to the community, the Delta Community Animal Shelter was a natural fit for her. Wakefield is the shelter’s volunteer photographer, and once a week she spends the afternoon immortalizing the shelter’s pets in the hopes of improving their chances of finding a home. “I’m an animal lover and I wanted to give back,” she says. “I read that shelters who use good photography of their animals can increase their adoption rate, so I thought it would be a good idea.” Like many professional photographers, Wakefield started out snapping pics as a

No attempt was made to enter the vehicle. A vehicle on the 4700-block Wesley Drive was also vandalized in a similar fashion the same night.

After studying at Focal Point Visual Arts Learning Centre and Langara College in Vancouver, she started her own business, Karla Wakefield Photography. On her website at karlawakefield.com, she profiles some of the shelter’s interesting characters. Like Nova the three-legged puppy. Nova’s leg was badly broken and wasn’t treated by her previous owners, so it had to be amputated as a result. Thankfully Nova, like so many of the pets Wakefield photographs, has since found a loving home. “It helps to tell their story through photos,” she says. “If you can help make a connection between people and the pets, it helps their chances of finding a home.” When photographing her subjects, Wakefield says she likes to observe the animals first to find out what makes them tick.
No suspects have been identified and no witnesses have reported seeing the crimes occur.

“Every animal has its own unique quirks and personality,” she says. “They could be playful, inquisitive, energetic, or mellow. I try to capture that uniqueness in the photo to help people make that connection.” Being upfront about an animals personality is important, she says, other wise the new home might not be the right fit, and the animal could end up back at the shelter. “There’s always ups and downs with pet guardianship,” says Wakefield. “But the staff here are very straight-up about the pets and their characteristics.” Wakefield has two rescue cats of her own, Ruby and Chelsea, and says she can’t imagine life without “her girls.” “I wouldn’t ever want to be without them,” she says. • To learn more about pet adoption, visit the Delta Community Animal Shelter’s website at www.deltacommunityanimalshelter.ca

Time to break from TransLink
nce again, south-of-theFraser transit users are being shafted by TransLink. The transportation agency, not well-loved in Surrey or Delta, announced Tuesday that it is scrapping a number of pass and discount programs, claiming this makes the system “more equitable.” Among the programs cut are FareSaver tickets, the books of 10 tickets which have been well-utilized by many transit users from this area. TransLink says the discount programs will be replaced by discounts that will be available with the new Compass Card system, to be introduced later this year. The current discount programs end on Jan. 1, 2014. FareSaver ticket users have been getting a 21-per-cent discount in the past year, as the cost of fares rose while the FareSaver prices stayed the same. That discount will drop to 14 per cent with Compass Cards. It sounds fair on the surface. But it doesn’t add up when the impact of the three-zone fare system is added to the mix. Transit riders who get on the system in Surrey, Delta or Langley must pay for three-zone travel to get to Vancouver. This applies even if they get on SkyTrain at Scott Road Station, just across the Fraser from New Westminster. The only other area of the region where three-zone fares apply is in the Tri-City and Maple Ridge/ Pitt Meadows areas. It is not coincidental that all areas subject to three-zone fares have the worst transit service. TransLink collects an inordinate amount of fare money per passenger in Surrey, Delta and other three-zone communities. Yet at the same time, it provides a level of service that is far below what is offered in Vancouver, New Westminster, Burnaby or Richmond. The difference between a onezone and three-zone fare is substantial. To ride the bus or SkyTrain within Vancouver, where
service is most frequent, it costs a transit rider (without any discounts for student, senior or child) $2.75. The same rider in Delta, travelling to the edge of Vancouver at Joyce or Renfrew stations on SkyTrain, pays $5.50. Despite steady growth and a higher density in urban areas than Burnaby’s, transit service in Surrey is not being expanded. There is still no express bus service for Surrey riders across the Port Mann Bridge, as promised as a condition of the Port Mann Bridge becoming a toll bridge. TransLink launched the 555 Express Bus that runs between the Carvolth Transit Exchange on 202nd Street in Langley and Braid SkyTrain Station in New Westminster. However, the bus does not stop in Surrey, despite an expensive 156 Street exit built to accommodate it, and therefore provides no express service to riders in Surrey. And many bus users in Surrey frequently get passed by when waiting for a bus, and often wait up to half an hour to get on a bus at all. This level of service and blatant discrimination against Surrey and Delta residents is completely unacceptable. People in this area are already contributing disproportionately to TransLink, through the higher fares, and being forced to buy more gas (and thus pay more gas tax). TransLink property taxes in this area are not discounted in any way, despite a lower level of service. While a referendum on new sources of funding for TransLink is scheduled for some time early in 2014, Surrey, Delta and White Rock residents need to ask themselves if they want to continue paying disproportionately. While few politicians even want to talk about it, we likely would be better off with our own regional transit system south of the Fraser, as long as it retains good links with the rest of the system.

❙ Uncommon Sense
Just 29 more years until retirement
t is my one-year anniversary with the South Delta Leader and the time has, as the expression goes, just flown by. Since I arrived I saw the Harris Barn built, the Delta Police Pipe Band kilt, the Boundary Bay Air Show, and Arctic owls escaping the snow. I saw the old totem pole come down, a film crew make Ladner into an American town, an eagle released back into the wild, and a brand new heart for a 6-year-old child. Met firefighters give their best, a Movember mustache worn with zest, Cops for Cancer ride their bikes, and a donated kidney get 678 Facebook “likes.” Had a chance to meet a 100-year-old man, and Howie Meeker (I shook his hand), had coffee with Jackson of Beachcombers fame, and then this other guy (I forget his name). Visited the good ol’ Westham Island Herb Farm, went and checked out Earthwise Garden’s barn, wore rubber boots in Burns Bog, and photographed a heron on a great big log.
Wrote a story about a stolen plane, and a trip down George Massey memory lane, a hospital visitor named Mr. G, and a Chinatown that used to be. Wrote about politics spoken in the council hall, about bylaws and buildings big and small, some that got people all worked up, and some that passed with an indifferent, “yup.” For birthdays, I got out to quite a few, the police and fire and the ALR, too, while Ladner Elementary celebrated 75, it was 100 candles for DSS off Arthur Drive. Met an old farmer who’s worked his land, since this was all buckbrush and marsh and sand, who remembers before the tunnel was built, and when Ladner Harbour wasn’t filled with silt. But the best part of all just one year in, was moving with the family to Tsawwassen, and I know that last word doesn’t rhyme, but I’m sure I’ll think of something better at a later time. One year in and I’m already looking forward to many more in South Delta. Thanks for making my job interesting every day.
Letters to the editor Dispelling the myth of a ‘McJob’ After reading your July 26 article, (“Offering students a career instead of a McJob”) I felt it necessary to provide my personal experience as a McDonald’s Owner/Operator in Delta, Ladner and Richmond and address the implied misconceptions around working for McDonald’s. Like the over 50 per cent of McDonald’s Canada’s franchisees, as well as the past three presidents of McDonald’s Canada, I began my career behind the counter at the age of 15. I applied at McDonald’s as I knew it was a place where I could get solid job experience. I never left, and have been with the company for 43 years, working as a restaurant manager and then within the corporate offices in operations – and have been a local franchisee for the past 12 years. I’m proud to be a part of an organization that is one of Canada’s largest employers of youth, and take great pride in the fact that we set young people up on the path to success whether they stay with us for a year or a career. Working for McDonald’s
opens doors to endless opportunities and career possibilities, and we provide world-class training, time management and invaluable people skills. We also offer competitive wages and comprehensive benefits packages, including flexible schedules and the potential to grow, for all of our employees. We’ve been consistently ranked among Canada’s 50 Best Employers, because we’ve created a culture that is recognized as positive, fun and also one in which our employees feel engaged. We opened our doors in South Delta in 1984, and I’ve been proud to operate in the community for over a decade. We support many activities in the community, including sponsoring Delta Gymnastics, SDSS Football and Theatre, Tsawwassen Movie Nights and Cops for Cancer to name a few. In addition, we support the education of our employees – whether through company scholarships or my own personal program for my restaurant’s employees. I hope those who read this understand the important role we play, as a locally owned and operated business, and that our employees become
future leaders within the community and abroad. I’m proud to be a local businessperson, and I’m proud of each and every one of my employees. Stephen Krawchuk McDonald’s Owner/Operator
Homeowners noisy too That Deltans are objecting to cannons being blasted to scare birds from crops begs a question or two: How many of those bothered by cannons shots don’t give a fig about disturbing their neighbors within a two- or three-block radius with their noisy - read cheap - leaf blowers, hedge shredders, power washers et cetera? If householders replaced their noisy gardening tools with quiet versions, farmers could be convinced to install zip lines along which they could dispatch silent scare crows. And, instead of tolerating their shrieking chippers in our neighborhoods, why don’t we insist that fallers haul trees and limbs away to be chipped at an industrial site? And when are designers going to realize that noise is wasted energy? Greg J. Edwards Delta

❙ By the bay
A walk in the woods at Watershed Park
hot summer’s day is the perfect time to spend in a coastal rainforest, yet there are few such parks south of the Fraser. One choice would be Watershed Park, a densely timbered part of the North Delta escarpment, noted for its artesian freshwater springs and mountain biking trails. Here you can stroll on winding footpaths through the towering western hemlocks, red cedars and Douglas fir. Like all such stands in the lower mainland, they are second-growth trees, the original forest having been felled in the late 1800s. A few massive stumps remain and notches on their trunks, a metre or so above the ground, mark the position of the fellers’ spring boards. The stumps serve as nurse logs for red huckleberry and ferns, and after the autumn rains, many-coloured fungi cluster around their roots. The forest is a protective layer for underlying sedimentary deposits, rocks that were laid down during the Quaternary geological period. These rocks are like an underground sponge, with pure fresh water squeezed into tiny cracks, often less than a millimeter wide. The water-bearing layer is confined under pressure between two impervious rock layers, and water flows to the surface through artesian wells or springs. Prior to the early 1900s, people in Delta relied on sloughs and rainwater for drinking and washing.
Then a large reservoir was built near 59 Avenue and water was piped throughout the delta, spurring the growth of the local dairy industry and a rush of new houses. The reservoir is long gone, but an old pump house and the seeping water of the springs can be seen from the Artesian Trail in the southern part of Watershed Park. This is a cool, green trail to walk in the early morning, listening to the fluting sound of Swainson’s thrushes, and the loud trills of spotted towhees hidden in the salmonberry bushes. For a taste of Delta’s fresh artesian water, walk uphill to the tap near the Scout Camp. Previous access points have been closed because of adjacent road hazards. Groundwater is a very valuable, yet hidden resource. There are over two hundred aquifers under the Fraser lowlands, including Abbotsford, Hopington and Brookswood. These unconfined aquifers have the water table as their upper surface and are easily contaminated by pollutants, such as cattle manure and pesticides. Anne Murray is a local naturalist, blogger and author of two books on nature and local history; see www.natureguidesbc.wordpress.com and www.natureguidesbc.com. The Delta History Hunters, an activity group with the Delta Museum and Archives Society, are touring Watershed Park on Thursday, Aug. 22. See www.deltamuseum.ca for details.
ITY MU N M O C FACT
The latest Southlands proposal presented by Century Group at the council meeting July 29 was impressive. Who wouldn’t want to live in such a beautifully planned community catering, as was claimed, to every aesthetic and environmental ideal while giving over tracts of farmland to the municipality to maintain and presumably farm? Are we all mad? Who, with an eye to the future cannot calculate the effects of the steady encroachment onto arable lands by mega malls, Tsawwassen Springs, the horror that is the South Fraser Perimeter Road, the ever hun-
gry Westshore Terminals and of course, the new bridge that will up the pressure on what is now “safe” farmland to be forfeited for the new housing developments to come. We witness almost daily the alarming effects of climate change, and yet we ignore those warnings and allow the promise of a bespoke community to wipe out reason. We need farmland. We need to make sure we still have control of our food production. Not to do so is madness. There has been comment that population growth is inevitable. I agree and the community should plan accordingly, not with more
sprawl - and yes, Southlands is expensive sprawl - but with increased density in the town core and along those corridors close to transit. Townhouse complexes, condominiums with adequate public spaces, hopefully designed by someone who has an eye for form as well as function. If we in the community are truly concerned about accommodating an increase in population and affordability for seniors and young families alike, we must take a leap out of the 1950’s and look the future square in the eye.

❙ Local Flavour
❙ Riverhouse restaurant executive chef Jamie Smail serves up his delish miso sablefish dish. Adrian MacNair photo
miso on musician’s menu Executive chef Jamie Smail shares a recipe for miso sablefish
amie Smail has worked on and off for the Riverhouse Restaurant in Ladner for the past five years, but he’s looking to stay this time around. The executive chef has a kitchen staff of 18 people working under him and he’s only 25 years old. “Yes, it’s kind of scary,” he says, laughing. Smail has worked on and off for Riverhouse since 2007, leaving once to go backpacking through Europe, and then a second time to open a Keg restaurant in Vancouver. But being offered the position of executive chef lured him back home. “I grew up in Ladner and I was always close by so it’s always an easy place to come back to,” he says. Smail has been working in the restaurant
and food service industry for 10 years, starting as a dishwasher. Now he’s responsible for creating the menu for the restaurant. “This industry is so fast paced and every day is an adventure,” he says. Living life in the fast lane is Smail’s style, who plays in the Indie rock band Tough Lovers. The band participated in a benefit concert for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) last October, raising more than $5,000. So, what does cooking and music have in common? “There’s a lot of competition, that’s always an issue,” he says after reflecting on the question. “But it’s also not your regular nine to five job.” Things are always changing, whether it’s on the menu or in a new song. Creating a new dish for the public is similar to putting
together an album. “I guess it’s a little piece of you,” he says. This week’s Local Flavour recipe is one of Smail’s creative inspirations, a miso sablefish lightly seared and served over garlic sautéed spinach. Smail likes to bake the fish in the oven for easier deboning. He then finishes with a miso mustard sauce for a little spice. Miso, which is a fermented soy bean, has been popular in culinary circles of late, and Smail also likes to makes a miso honey sable fish for a little change of the sweet. “We’ve been fine-tuning it and this one just sells and people love it,” he says.

A new life, a world away Refugee finds hope and friendship in Tsawwassen Adrian MacNair
t was while Pingala Dhital was lying on the dirty floor of a makeshift tent, using little more than bamboo poles to brace herself in the effort of bringing another child into the world, that she realized she would never go home again. The woman had spent nearly a decade in refugee camps scattered in Nepal after fleeing her homeland of Bhutan in 1990 with 100,000 other Nepali speakers. “The country hasn’t admitted there was a civil war,” says Dhital, now 40. “They don’t want to tell anyone.” Nepalis had been immigrating to Bhutan since as early as 1620, settling mostly on the uninhabited southern border with India. But by the 1980s, Bhutan’s government decided
not only to put a stop to the largely illegal immigration of the past three centuries, but also to expel existing Nepali-speaking people. The Bhutanese Citizenship Act of 1985 was created to preserve the cultural majority of the north with a “One Nation One People” policy requiring all people to wear the national dress, follow an etiquette code, and speak the national language of Dzongkha. Ethnic Nepalis were soon forced to leave the country or face severe persecution, although Dhital says the government won’t admit it. “They say they were illegal immigrants and they left,” she says, adding most were actually forced to sign a “voluntary migration forms” stating they had left willingly.
At first, people like her father protested peacefully. But when neighbours began getting arrested they knew it was time to flee. “I started hearing that soldiers were taking the girls out into the jungle and raping them,” says Dhital, who lived in a village of 600 people. She escaped across the border into India with her parents and four brothers by pretending they were herding cows. In August of 1991, the Indian government decided to relocate refugees to Nepal. Her family was rounded up with other Nepalis and taken in a bus to a desolate and windswept camp just across the border. “I still remember the plastic flapping in the roofs of the huts,” she recalls. Dhital began crying

Adrian MacNair photo so loudly that her father’s friend came and hugged her and said he would take her to stay in a house nearby. The 18-year-old didn’t know how to react. Beyond feeling emotions of either happiness or sadness, she could barely bring herself to eat. She was reunited with her family a week later. “The five days was like five years for me,”
says Dhital. The sickness and famine in the refugee camp took its toll over the next several months as thousands poured over the border. By the time the United Nations arrived in early 1992 there were 80,000 people and Dhital recalls a funeral being held for 34 people on just one day. At first the people were
happy to eat provisions brought by the U.N. but many died suddenly and unexpectedly. Dhital said when people starve for a long time and then eat quickly the shock to the system can be fatal. At the peak of the crisis there were 107,000 refugees split among seven refugee camps. During that time she married and had two children in the camps, which made
her realize she had to find a new life for her family. By 2005, after having been displaced for her entire life, Dhital began meeting with Nepali leaders in Kathmandu, backed by the support of Ganga Baral, another woman fighting for a resettlement program. “On the first day I couldn’t say anything. I just cried,” recalls Dhital.

Come celebrate at BC’s legendary Fair at the PNE!
In 2006, Tsawwassen resident Barb Westlake was reading about the Bhutanese situation online. Having trekked through Asia in 1989-90 she had always harboured a fascination with the Buddhist country. Feeling like she had to do something to help, Westlake sent an email that somehow found its way to Dhital. After learning more she began a letter writing campaign to the Canadian government to become part of the resettlement program. In 2007 Canada agreed to resettle 5,000 people over five years, and in March agreed to welcome 1,000 more. “I don’t know if it helped or not but the girls told me it gave them strength,” says Westlake, as Dhital nods next to her. “We were in a hopeless situation, and
here is this lady in a corner of the world in Tsawwassen who is helping us,” says Dhital. “That connected us and gave us hope and courage.” After meeting with U.N. agencies Dhital began making progress and in 2007 the U.S. government agreed to resettle 60,000 Bhutanese refugees. When Nepali-Bhutanese rebels began making threats on her life, she knew it was time to leave. Dhital came to the U.S. in February 2008 as the first Bhutanese family under the multinational resettlement program. She landed in Spokane, Washington State, but was confused because for the first three days she thought she was in the nation’s capitol. “I asked where is the White House? And then they brought me a big map and
showed me the White House is in this Washington and we were in another one.” But her family has thrived in the U.S. since, and on May 4, Dhital and her family became official citizens. Westlake got to see Dhital in Tsawwassen for the first time in an emotional meeting last year, and the two met again recently. “I don’t know if we ever thought it would happen,” recalls Westlake, laughing. “And then when we met we were friends immediately,” If Bhutan ever welcomes the Nepalis back to the country, Westlake says she would like to visit with her friend. “She made a big difference on our life,” said Dhital. “You don’t know how much it means to us.” F

Simple and healthy ways to boost your energy levels As a day wears on, many men and women find their energy levels steadily decreasing. Some resort to a cup of coffee, while others prefer a sugary snack to get more pep. Such solutions are not always healthy and rarely provide more than a temporary jolt of energy. So what are men and women to do when the inevitable post-lunch doldrums rear their ugly heads? Oftentimes the best way to remedy a dip in energy levels is to prevent it in the first place. There are several simple and healthy ways to boost your energy levels so you don’t find yourself falling flat in the afternoon.
> Don’t skip meals. Skipping meals is robbing your body of the fuel it needs to get through the day. Skipping breakfast is especially harmful, as you will be starting the day off essentially on a fast and your energy levels will suffer as a result. A healthy breakfast that includes whole grain cereals or breads as well as some fruit and lean protein is a great way to start the day off energized. And no matter how busy you are during the day, be sure to eat a healthy lunch, ideally one that includes some protein. Protein is important because it takes the body longer to break down protein than it does carbohydrates, giving you an energy source that lasts longer than a lunch without any protein. > Exercise. Fatigue can be a byproduct of a body that’s overworked but also a side effect of a body that isn’t being worked enough. Daily exercise will increase your energy levels, even if the exercise is minimal. Research conducted at The California State University found that even a brisk 10-minute

> Drink water throughout the day. Water is a versatile beverage that serves many purposes, not the least of which is its ability to make a positive impact on your energy levels. When the body does not get enough water, it can send a variety of signals that are easily misread. The symptoms of thirst or dehydration can easily be confused for hunger, which may cause you to eat more during the day, and that food can make you feel sluggish as the day progresses. Even slight dehydration can make you feel fatigued. If drinking water isn’t a part of your daily routine and you find yourself feeling fatigued on a regular basis,
start drinking water and your energy levels will likely increase. Water is an especially good way to boost your energy levels thanks to its availability and affordability.
walk increased energy levels for as much as two hours. If your energy levels tend to start waning in the afternoon, consider a short, mid-afternoon jaunt. The dividends such a walk pays regarding your energy levels may just last until it’s time to call it a day. > Don’t cut too many calories. Men and women fighting fatigue may feel as though their weight is the main culprit behind that lethargy. Though being overweight or obese can have a negative impact on energy levels, it’s important men and women don’t cut too many calories from their diets when attempting to lose weight. Doing so may slow your metabolism, which can cause feelings of fatigue. If you are overweight or obese, you may very well need to cut calories, but don’t do so at the expense of your energy levels.

Many men and women find themselves battling fatigue come the midto late-afternoon. Though it’s easy to pour yourself another cup of coffee or lean on an energy drink once the post-lunch listlessness rears its ugly head, there are several alternatives to such remedies that can be more effective at boosting your energy levels over the long haul.

Safety Tips for Outdoor Enthusiasts
View Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Though it’s easy to get excited about a sunny day, it’s important for outdoor enthusiasts to take safety seriously. No matter your activity, always bring adequate sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun, and remember to bring enough water to stay hydrated throughout the day.
Cycling Cyclists must always be on alert for those with whom they are sharing the road. While many motorists respect cyclists, there are some who see cyclists as a nuisance, and such motorists may drive recklessly around cyclists in an attempt to scare them off the road. Cyclists are oftentimes at the mercy of motorists, so it pays to stay as attentive as possible. Never listen to an MP3 player or another music player while riding a bike. Such a distraction could prove deadly if it takes your attention away from the road.
Water sports Water attracts the sun, so it’s imperative that anyone planning to spend ample time on or around the water take steps to protect their skin. Wear appropriate clothing and apply sunscreen with a minimum sun protection factor of 15. Never take to the water after you have consumed alcohol. Alcohol can dull your senses, making you less likely to recognize a dangerous situation should one present itself. If you plan on entering the water, always enter feet first and do your best to avoid swimming alone. When you employ the buddy system while swimming, you are ensuring there is someone there to help you should you begin to struggle or to alert lifeguards or other safety personnel should something go awry. If you to plan to boat, let your loved ones staying behind on land know where you plan to go so they can share this information with authorities if your boat has problems or you don’t return on time. While on the boat, always wear a flotation device and make sure the boat is not running as you board and dismount. By taking the time to reduce necessary steps to reduce their risk of injury.

Pioneers keep postseason streak alive ❙ Staff writer firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ladner Pioneers are one step closer to a Senior B West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association title after tak-
ing Game 1 last Thursday in convincing fashion. The Pioneers took the first game of their best-of-five league final playoff series by a score of 10-4 over the visiting Tri-City Bandits.
Believe it at fortisbc.com/calculator.
The Pioneers are undefeated this postseason with a 6-0 record after going 11-3 in the regular season. Ladner won both regular season meetings with the Bandits this year.
*These are approximate savings based on the difference between annual natural gas and electricity costs for space and water heating of a 2,300 square-foot house with average insulation and four occupants in the FortisBC Lower Mainland service area. Calculation compared standard-efficiency natural gas furnace and large storage tank water heater with electric furnace and equivalent water heater and is based on FortisBC natural gas rates as of May 2013 ($9.35/GJ) and electricity rates in the service area identified (Tier 1 and 2: $0.071 and $0.109 per kWh).
