school rent hike burns Brownies higher fees discouraging group registration by Ne i l Cor be tt staff reporter
Colleen Flanagan/the news
Ella Darlington, 9, with riding instructor Kaitlyn Harbour, left, and Dianne Stoesz, president of the Haney Horsemen Association, are concerned about losing horse trails in Maple Ridge.
Girl Guides of Canada has traditionally been an affordable organization for parents to have their children involved with, but there was a big inflationary increase this year, due to the hiked cost of renting gymnasiums and other school facilities in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Brownies, Guides, Sparks and their parents and leaders filled the gallery Wednesday at the local school board meeting to protest the increased fees. Darlene Kent, area commissioner for the Guides from Mission to Coquitlam, noted that gymnasium rental has gone from $5 to $33.75 an hour, and a multipurpose room from $1 to $13.75 an hour. “This overwhelming increase is already having an impact on Guiding in these communities,” Kent told trustees. see Brownies, p13
Unhappy trails for Horsemen Group that built them fears loss to suburban expansion by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter
he trails were carved into Maple Ridge’s mountainsides and rainforests over decades, the result of hundreds of hours of labour, out of love, by the Haney Horsemen. Those quiet pathways now total more than 300 kilometres, wind-
ing throughout the hills and suburbs, blending an ancient world with the new and differentiating Maple Ridge from the rest of hectic Metro Vancouver. Dianne Stoesz wants it to stay that way, but she’s worried. Steady suburban expansion and a procession of newcomers to Maple Ridge is threatening its equine heritage. “We want the community to know, like the new people – that this is a horse community,” she said Wednesday. “It just seems that the new people in the community don’t realize
that these new trails, these lovely new trails that they have in their back yard, are because of the last 25 years of the Haney Horsemen.” Stoesz said some people don’t want horses in their area, and don’t like dealing with the droppings, and don’t know how to get around a horse to avoid spooking it. And previously, if a horse trail had to be removed to allow for housing or roads, developers would have to put up a deposit that only would be refunded by the District of Maple Ridge if an alternate trail was built.
“Well, that’s not happening so much anymore.” Stoez said trails, or portions thereof that have been lost recently, include Larch Trail, near 136th Avenue, Maple Ridge Trail, Abernethy Trail, Shull, Toilet Trail, Neilson, Molly Buckerfields, the sidepass from Ravine Trail to Kanaka Creek Regional Park, Wildlife Trail, “and all of Blue Mountain-McNutt [Avenue] area.” A recent parks and recreation trail guide of Maple Ridge also riled the riders. see Trails, p4

Minister cites better roads, safer cars Black Press
Most motorists agree that the majority of drivers travel along the highway between Maple Ridge and Mission at a rate higher than the posted limit. Colleen Flanagan/ THE NEWS
‘Increase speed limit on Lougheed’ Provincial government conducting review of speed limits on highways by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter
hese drivers don’t want to be lawbreakers – they think it’s criminal that the speed limit is 80 km/h on the Lougheed Highway between Maple Ridge and Mission. Commuters who use that stretch would like to see it considered in Victoria’s review of speed limits. For the first time in 10 years, the provincial government is embarking on an audit of the speed limits on highways between communities. Government is inviting public input and will be holding public forums in cities such as Kamloops – the Coquihalla Highway is most often mentioned as a route with the potential to have higher limits. There is no forum planned for Maple Ridge, but if there was, it is likely government would hear a lobby to speed up the Lougheed. Ridge Meadows RCMP noted earlier this year that the route from 240th Street to 287th (Mission border) is their primary area of enforcement. Since it has been made a fourlane highway in some areas, traffic is speeding up. However, the posted limits are still 80 km/h across the entire route.
A straw poll found most drivers would like to see the limit increased. And, those who think 80 km/h is a safe limit acknowledge that most traffic is exceeding it. Doug Harding said he is on Lower Mainland highways regularly, driving from arena to arena for a hockey instruction service. He believes the Lougheed between Maple Ridge and Mission is safe and well engineered, and the public is already doing 90 km/h across most of the route. “I wouldn’t raise it by more than about 10 km/h – and that’s what people are used to,” he said. Mark Ulmer would go further. “It wouldn’t hurt to go up to 100 km/h, everyone does that – at least,” he said. “I think it’s adequate,” said John Randel of Abbotsford, but added most people want to go faster. “I put it on cruise control at 80, and everyone in passing me.” Trevor Turncliff said he would keep the limit at 80 km/h. “I don’t think it matters what they do. People are going to speed if they want to speed.” But it matters to Ian Tootil, the former photo radar fighter who is now championing the cause of higher speed limits with the group Sense B.C. Its video “Speed Kills Your Pocketbook” has received almost 1.2 million views on YouTube in a month. Because police in B.C. now have the authority to have vehicles impounded for excessive speeding, and new fines for excessive speeding can range from
$368 to $483, it is important that speed limits be set at the uppermost limit that is safe, says Tootil. “We want to legitimize the speeds that are already being done on our roadways,” he said. He notes that since the U.S. federal government raised its maximum limit of 55 m/ph in 1996 – 37 of the 50 states have increased limits, and more are coming. The fastest route in the U.S. is a Texas highway, with a speed limit of 138 km/h. This is an acknowledgement that vehicles handle better, with improvements such as traction stability and anti-lock brakes, have improved safety features, and roads are engineered to a higher standard. He said that engineering is “wasted” if speed limits are artificially low. In addition, police resources are “misappropriated,” and some $60 million per year is spent on fines and points in B.C. “This is money that’s coming out of the economy,” argues Tootil. A common argument against raising speed limits is that: If people are doing 90 or 100 km/h when the limit is posted at 80 km/h, then they will push a little harder and do 100 or 110 km/h if the maximum speed is increased to 90 km/h. Tootil said the experience of other countries shows that is not the case. The majority of drivers proceed at a speed that is safe based on road conditions, sightlines, their vehicle’s performance and a variety of other factors. The top speed, he says, should be
perceived by most drivers as a fast speed – uncomfortably to maintain for a long trip. “It should be a limit. It should be the upper end of what people would normally travel,” he maintains, “instead of a baseline, where everyone knows there is no relationship between a posted sign and the speed people are actually driving.” The province is in the process of a technical review of B.C. highways including the crash history, traffic volume and other features. It is also looking at research from around the world.
“We want to legitimize the speeds that are already being done on our roadways.” Ian Tootil, Sense B.C. The public input portion of the review will take place in November. Ridge Meadows RCMP declined to comment. “It would be inappropriate for the RCMP to provide any comment or opinion during the ‘public input’ stage of this process. As noted in the Ministry of Transportation announcement, we will be engaged during the stakeholder process, and asked to provide input at that time,” said Sgt. Dale Somerville.
Transportation Minister Todd Stone wants B.C. residents to weigh in on a potential increase in highway speed limits now under consideration. The Coquihalla Highway already has a speed limit of 110 kilometres per hour, but traffic there does an average speed of 118, while drivers routinely exceed the posted limit of 90 or 100 on many other provincial highways. “There’s no question the Coquihalla is a prime candidate for an adjustment in the speed limit,” Stone said,. It’s been a decade since B.C. last reviewed speed limits. Stone said any increases would involve mainly rural provincial highways between communities, not highways in urban areas of the Lower Mainland. He said a higher speed limit in some stretches of highway has been made possible by billions of dollars in major road upgrades since the last review in 2003, including 180 additional kilometres of four- or six-lane highway. He also said vehicles are “much safer today than 10 years ago” as a result of traction stability control, anti-lock brakes and other improvements. Stone cited a 28 per cent drop in injury-causing collisions since 2003. And he said research increasingly suggests the greatest danger isn’t necessarily speeding itself, but driving at a much different speed than most other drivers. A minority of 15 per cent of drivers who don’t keep up with the flow or who speed excessively are at greater risk of a crash than the other 85 per cent of drivers who may be going somewhat over the posted speed limit, he said. Stone stressed decreases in the speed limit are also possible. “This review is not about increasing speed limits, it’s about making sure we have the right speed limits.” And he said there will be “no Autobahn” in B.C. where speed limits are lifted altogether. “I am not interested in making any changes that are going to compromise the safety of motorists.” He said one option could be variable speed limits that are higher in the day and lower at night. The review will pull in fresh research from around the world, and closely consider factors unique to B.C., like its geography and high mountain passes. The speed limit review aims to generate recommendations by next spring, when the Legislature reconvenes. Public forums start in November.

‘Trails a huge asset’ Trails from front
On that, only a few trails are labelled “horses allowed,” leaving the impression that horses aren’t allowed on the other trails. “We’re wondering if the community has lost sight that we’re a horse community and we’re wondering if parks and recreation still wants to support us as a horse community,” said Stoesz. Since the end of the fee-for-service arrangement – in which the club maintained trails for a fee – with the district in 2011 (because of insurance concerns), the club’s influence also seems to have waned, she added. But the club’s concerns are new to Maple Ridge’s parks and facilities director, Dave Boag. He said it’s always been past practice to ensure that if a trail is moved to make room for roads or houses, that an alternate would be provided. “I would have thought that would be unusual for a trail just to be taken out. The trail connection is important to the district. I’m just not sure where this is coming from.” Boag said the Haney Horsemen have been working with the district in creating trails over many years. He said the trail guide was the third such one issued by the district and was intended to combine bicycle, hiking and equestrian routes to show the public the range of trails available. Mayor Ernie Daykin also said it’s the first he’s heard of such concerns. “That’s a huge asset to the community.” Most, but not all trails allow horses, and there is a range of multi-use trails, Daykin added. The Horsemen fear they’ll lose their trails to other user groups, such as mountain bikers.
Boag wasn’t sure if Maple Ridge’s official community plan specified that a trail had to be replaced if it was removed to allow development. Stoesz said the club wants to work with the district and revamp the equestrian trail committee and highlighted in a letter to council the economic benefit of the horse community. That results from residents and boarders who own their own horses and spend locally on horserelated activities and goods. “Take care of horse owners and they will drop most of their disposable income locally to support their hobby and lifestyle.”
“Take care of horse owners and they will drop most of their disposable income locally to support their hobby and lifestyle.” Maple Ridge EquiSport Centre has developed an excellent reputation and recently opened a tack shop that’s also providing jobs, she added. Events such as the Back Country Horsemen’s Rendez Vous will bring in more than 200 riders to the area, while horse riders now regularly use the Golden Ears Bridge to trailer their horses to Maple Ridge’s trails. “Haney Horsemen have long been very proud that we are one of the few remaining communities where you can still ride from the barn to the trails and to destinations as wonderful as Golden Ears Provincial Park.”

Beloved Maple Ridge doctor passes away Dr. Clarence Fernandes, a â€˜doctorâ€™s doctorâ€™ who still did home visits by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter
larence Fernandes, a beloved Maple Ridge doctor who still did home visits, died suddenly on Monday, after calling in sick to work. â€œHeâ€™s a doctorâ€™s doctor, Clarence,â€? said his colleague, Dr. Godwin Obioha, a local gynecologist who worked closely with Fernandes, a family doctor who focussed on maternity and fertility. Obioha said Fernandes had a thorough understanding of both the science and art of medicine. â€œHe still does home visits,â€? Obioha. â€œHe talks to each patient like theyâ€™re the most special person in the world.â€? He spoke about his friend in the present tense, and said the shocking loss does not yet seem real. Suzie Franklin worked as a medical office assistant with Dr. Fernandes for 37 years â€“ from the time he started in Maple Ridge. She said he covered an on-call shift at the hospital over the weekend, but then phoned in sick on Monday â€“ which was unusual for him, but not unheard of. By the afternoon, she learned via social media that the 64-year-old had passed away due to heart failure. Since then, she has been dealing with a steady stream of tearful patients. â€œHe was totally dedicated to his patients â€“ they were his world,â€?
she said. â€œAnd he loved delivering babies.â€? Franklin said there are some families with four generations of patients at the practice, and Fernandes delivered two of them. She added that Fernandes and his wife Vienna, a nurse, would often still be at the clinic on 227th Street at 8 p.m. in the evening. â€œFor 12 or even 16 hours a day he was involved with his patients or his practice. He was here for everyone.â€? And he took on teaching resident physicians and nurse practitioners at a rate that saw him recognized for his work by UBC. â€œItâ€™s a very big loss to the community,â€? said Franklin. As a boss, he was thoughtful and caring. â€œIn 37 years, I have never seen him angry,â€? she said. Jennifer Jones was his patient for the past seven years, and said Fernandes diagnosed her with a life-threatening condition that other physicians had missed. â€œHe was an amazing doctor. He saved my life,â€? she said. â€œAnd my kids loved him. He was friendly with them, and took the time to listen to them, and explain why he was doing things.â€? She said the loss hit her family hard. â€œI was devastated,â€? said Jones. â€œThereâ€™s going to be a lot of people devastated â€“ he was so trustworthy, and such a good doctor.â€? Fernandes leaves behind three adult sons. â€œHe was full of life,

Yes, thankful While we have many things to be thankful for year-round, now is, of course, the best time to express our thanks. We would like to start with the weather, as we are still basking in double-digit delight. We realize that sooner rather than later our weather will take a more decidedly liquid form, but at least we don’t have to shovel it. Next would be our quality of life. While this is difficult to quantify, we know we’ve got it good in B.C.. Around the Metro region we can bike to work, run through forested trails on the weekends, enjoy parks with up-todate equipment and buy farm-fresh fruit and veggies almost any time of year. We can kayak in November, golf in December, ski in April, and those of us with leathery hides can swim in the ocean just about any darn day we please. As far as transportation goes, we’re pretty happy with our choices. Transit keeps us cruising around town on schedule for the most part. We can’t fail to mention our local restaurants. Food: Whether it’s burgers, sushi, Thai, Indian, Korean, pizza, homemade doughnuts or ice cream you crave, you can find pretty much anything you want, and it’s delicious. And what would a Thanksgiving editorial be without thanking our municipal politicians? Really, these guys and gals aren’t in it for the money or fame. They work hard on our behalf far beyond one council meeting a week, with very little financial remuneration. They listen to residents’ complaints, take phone calls at home and respond to problems, both big and small, at the drop of a hat. And while our mayors may be low key and perhaps, at least they’re not Rob Ford. For this we are truly grateful. – Black Press Tell us what you think @ www.mapleridgenews.com

October: a month for scary stories E
very October I told Grade 6 students stories. They wanted them to be scary. Here’s one. A little boy found a nut with a hole in it. Just then he fell under the shadow of a dark figure. An alarm sounded in the boy’s Along the Fraser head, one planted Jack Emberly by parents who told stories. This was the Devil. Stories are meant to entertain. But, in some, life-saving truths are embedded. The little boy knew he had to think quickly to save his soul. “I’ve heard,” he said, “you can make yourself as big as a mountain or as small as an ant. But, I don’t believe it.” The Devil was annoyed. “You’re a rude boy who needs a lesson!” he hissed. Folktales like he Boy and the Devil warn about those who prey on others. Not all trolls hide under bridges waiting to clutch the legs of billy goats. Some are pleasant-looking, smooth-talkers who seniors might not see as scammers.

Tales of meeting the Devil peaked in the 16th Century with the German legend of Faust, a man who sold his soul for “magic power.” Faust abandoned all moral integrity, and thusly relinquished his bond with society. In forsaking love of his fellows, he became the original zombie, the walking dead, a Frankenstein monster. When he realized his sins could never be forgiven, Faust willingly accompanied the Devil to Hell. It’s the theme of Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick (1851). Captain Ahab, consumed by hatred of the whale that took a leg, abandons responsibility for crew and employer to satisfy his revenge. Ahab tempts the crew of the Pequod with money to hunt the whale. They enlist in his willful insanity. When Moby Dick destroys the ship, every wayward man drowns except Ishmael. He alone retained some integrity, and thereby survived “to tell the tale.” Breaking Bad, the widely acclaimed TV series, recently concluded similarly.

The News/letters online comments Change parking fees Jackie Chow · Maple Ridge, British Columbia: Re: Reduction in pay parking at RMH sought. “... paid parking is not simply a revenue source, it also ensures a rotation of vehicles so that people aren’t using the parking lot when not attending Fraser Health facilities ... ” I think rotation at the hospital parking lot would not be a big problem in a community like Maple Ridge. I don’t think people have much reason to leave their cars parked at the hospital parking lot once they’re done their hospital visit. Rotation would certainly improve if the waiting times were reduced. There aren’t too many other reasons other than a hospital visit why someone would park their car there, since there’s not much else in the area other than residential homes. The argument certainly applies in the town core, where most parking is free (and abundant anyway, which means valuable real estate is being wasted, in my humble opinion). One important thing, even if the parking fees are going to be lowered, is that the way fees are being charged should be changed. It’s ludicrous that people have to worry about their parking time running out when often they may not be able to go put some money in. If they’re going to be charged, they should be paying for the actual time they’re parking there, and neither the parking management company nor the hospital should be profiting from the overpayments that are quite common now because people are worried that they may have to wait a long time. • Thelma Ge: Fraser Health authorities do not live in the real world and with their wages (that we pay), they can afford the parking. Real people, for the most part, cannot.
We pay more here Dan Olson: Re: Just phone PoCo about garbage. I have talked to PoCo and the cost on the tax bill for each household is less than $180/year – it works out to $14.69 per month total. Some people in Maple Ridge pay $14/month for private garbage pickup plus about $3/ month on their tax bill for recycling. So, in fact, in the majority of cases in Maple Ridge, we pay more than PoCo for a much inferior and antiquated system. There is a lot of fear-mongering and red herrings being tossed around on this issue. We should get all the objective information that we can in order to make the best informed ... decision that we are able to, There are many good options, but nothing can happen until we educate ourselves on the issue. Why do people fear facts? • Terry Hystad Becker: Dan - I’m in Pitt Meadows and am amazed at the garbage conversation going on. Seriously? We get garbage, recycle and green bins. What are you all waiting for? • Joanne Olson · Maple Ridge, British Columbia: Its unbelievable, Terry - I’ve lived in four provinces and many more cities and I’ve never seen anything as ill advised as a municipality that does not take responsibility for its own waste.
Times change Adrian Schuurmans: Re: Service to others, fading away. How have service clubs been marketing themselves? I see kiosks for donations (win a car ... ) and always buy tickets. However, I have no idea who they really are or what they do. Time for some marketing and recruiting, perhaps. Many years ago, Charlie Perry asked me to help drive some seniors using the Lions’ van, as he was unable to meet his commitment. I did (was a cab driver back then). Never heard from anyone again – a perfect recruitment opportunity missed. Times change. Do the clubs need to change? Active recruiting, one meeting a month instead of two, appreciation day, recognition. Just some ideas/questions. – comment @ mapleridgenews.com

East, west, north and south Editor, The News: Re: Ideas for a vibrant downtown (The News, Oct. 9). Maple Ridge council’s continuing obsessive compulsive disorder with 224th Street and vicinity is ridiculous. Council is always looking for ways to spend taxpayers’ money on one area of a large municipality. Note to council: there is east, west, north and south Maple Ridge. Most of us pay substantial property taxes, which go up every year, partially due to lack of business revenue. Businesses would like some of council’s attention. Putting an off-leash dog park downtown is a ludicrous idea. Taking parking spots away from businesses is a death knell to them. They already suffered through months of street beautification. Also, why, in an old shopping area, is there a need to paint vacant businesses so they present a better appear-
Council needs to focus on areas other than just downtown. ance? Ask why there are vacant businesses? It seems there is a small segment of citizenry who are trying to keep Maple Ridge like their own Little House on the Prairie at the expense of other taxpayers. Anyone running for office in the future should take note. Cherryl Katnich Maple Ridge
Survey says Editor, The News: Re: Ideas for a vibrant
downtown (The News, Oct. 9). Having read the article by Phil Melnychuk, I have a few comments to make. The report, by Shawn Matthewson, is well done and points out some things that could brighten up our downtown core, which will require some cash from municipal hall. And, yes, your taxes are going up again next year. It briefly mentions the crime problem, which I feel is the most important part of cleaning up the downtown core and revitalizing it for
the better. I’ve been dealing with this issue for a decade. She did a walkabout months back with a group of people for a couple of hours. She also consulted with a small and limited group of individuals in the community, businesses and residents. Okay, but too limited in scope. To truly have a broad perspective on the downtown core, municipal hall should survey its population, by a mailout survey, like it does for whether citizens want a new liquor store or not. This is not too expensive and you’d get a wide range of comments back from downtown residents. In summary: things have improved somewhat, but the criminal elements continue to make the downtown core an unpleasant experience for many. Enforcement is the key to improving this problem. Good report. Hope it doesn’t just gather dust. John E. McKenzie Maple Ridge
Time for sensible marijuana laws in B.C. Editor, The News: Re: Marijuana referendum misguided (B.C. Views, Oct. 9). Tom Fletcher’s recent column misrepresented the Sensible B.C. campaign, and could lead to confusion about our efforts for a marijuana referendum. The ultimate aim of Sensible B.C. is to have B.C.’s marijuana industry regulated in a similar manner to wine. Our proposed legislation, the Sensible Policing Act, is designed to bring us closer to that goal. The Sensible Policing Act has four components, all carefully designed to be with-
backlog in our courts. Secondly, our legislation treats a minor in possession of marijuana exactly the same as if it were alcohol. Our proposal would allow police to deal with a teenager smoking pot, but without the lifetime criminal record that can restrict travel and employment. Thirdly, the Sensible Policing Act calls upon the federal government to repeal marijuana prohibition, so that B.C. can regulate and tax it in a manner similar to wine and beer. This would send a powerful message of change to Ottawa, and give our prime minister
the mandate to legalize. Finally, our legislation creates a B.C. commission to figure out the rules needed to implement it. Like alcohol and tobacco, most of the regulation for legal marijuana would be determined at the provincial level. British Columbia cannot fully legalize marijuana without a change to federal law, but we can take some sensible steps in the right direction. We’re now about a month into our three-month timelimit for gathering signatures. Dana Larsen Sensible B.C.

in provincial jurisdiction. The first aspect is to redirect police resources away from being wasted on simple possession of marijuana. Last year, B.C. police made more than 16,500 arrests for marijuana possession, draining $10.5 million in police and court time away from investigation of more serious criminal offences. If Sensible B.C. is successful, then tens of thousands of hours of police and court time would immediately be freed up to pursue real criminals. This means safer communities for everyone, and less

In The Boy and the Devil, the worst of all villains made himself as small as an ant, and climbed inside the nut. Immediately, the boy plugged the hole with a twig. “Let me out!” screamed the Devil. Instead, the boy did what stories told him to. He took the nut to a blacksmith and

The smithy tapped it with a small hammer. When the nut refused to break, he used a bigger one, hitting it harder. Frustrated still, he used a sledge hammer. This time the nut exploded with a boom that knocked the blacksmith off his feet. “The bloomin’ Devil must

Campaigns starting for 2014 election? Council watchers drawing attention by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter
As soon as the results were in from the November 2011 municipal election, the campaigning for the next one in 2014 began, says a Maple Ridge councillor. “Absolutely, slate politics are being organized right now,” said Coun. Cheryl Ashlie. She was told at the first Lower Mainland Local Government Association meeting after the 2011 election that a group was being formed and that a shadow council was being created. Most recently, some members of Maple Ridge Council Watch, a Facebook group, have attended two council meetings and Tweeted the proceedings using the hashtag #mrpoli. Ashlie has no problem with people disagreeing with elected officials. “But if you’re a politician in waiting, be
honest about it – because you’re trying to unseat people. You have a different agenda if you’re trying to get a seat away from people.” But it’s hard to follow the proceedings of a meeting and send out accurate Tweets, she pointed out. A slate can involve a cross section of political parties from the provincial and federal level, she added. “Just because you’re Conservative, you’re NDP, you’re Liberal, doesn’t mean you don’t collectively come together as a partisan group for a municipal slate.” Former Maple Ridge school trustee Katherine Wagner said she formed Council Watch to serve as a way of allowing council watchers to meet in one place and to discuss local political issues. She doesn’t consider it a slate, but an open group composed of a range of political views. “I think people who are interested in politics, naturally talk to each other.” It also would be “fabulous” if more people
paid attention to local politics, she added. “I think the beauty of it is there is a wide range of opinions.” But there are people in the group with set opinions who she’d expect to run in the next election. Instead of trying to defeat councillors, people in Maple Ridge Council Watch could just be seeking a change in how council operates, rather than take their jobs. “If people are trying to hold you to account, it’s very easy to deflect that,” by saying they’re after your job. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin wasn’t worried about slates or Council Watch and welcomed the attention to municipal politics. “I’ve heard rumours, anecdotal stories that people are doing that,” creating a slate. He said the Council Watch groups “create some interest” and wasn’t bothered by the commentary. “If people read these things and they e-mail or call … I think that can be constructive and positive.”

Letter won’t get on the record staff reporter
Dan Olson just wanted his letter to get on the municipal record, so councillors at least can say they were informed. But a June meeting decided it’s a personnel issue and it’s not a council matter. Olson had e-mailed a letter to Maple Ridge council and the premier’s office about Coun. Cheryl Ashlie becoming constituency assistant for Liberal Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Doug Bing. Olson said for Ashlie to sit as a municipal councillor and as a constituency assistant for an MLA could create a conflict of interest when it came to voting on local issues and wanted his letter to be put on council’s agenda so it could become part of the official record. “At the least, it should have shown under correspondence at the workshop, at the minimum.” But Mayor Ernie Daykin has decided it’s a personnel issue and shouldn’t go before council. Daykin said in an Oct. 2 letter to Olson that council discussed the issue in June and considered to be concluded then. But Daykin noted that Olson also sent the letter to Premier Christy Clark and said Ashlie would address the issue if the premier indicates there may be a conflict. Other municipal councillors in other ridings also serve as constituency assistants. Ashlie said there’s no obligation to put every letter to the municipality on council’s agenda. “That’s often the case. Not every single letter ends up on the agenda.” The mayor decides which correspondence he receives goes to staff or council. Ashlie said there’s no conflict in her role as a parttime municipal councillor and part time constituency assistant for Bing, a Pitt Meadows councillor. Her job is to help individual constituents access services and sort out problems while Bing’s staff in Victoria deal with government issues. She said she doesn’t deal with grant applications to the provincial government. “I do not deal with grants. I have nothing to do with it.”

Marketing will be downtown priority staff reporter
The efforts to keep sprucing up Maple Ridge’s downtown and making it shine will continue, using the leverage of the facade improvement program. Since the program was launched in 2009, using grants to kickstart facelifts of downtown businesses, about $6 million in improvements have taken place. This year, eight downtown businesses have lined up another $50,000 in grants. The details came in
an annual update of the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association to Maple Ridge council Tuesday. Continued marketing and promotion of the downtown will be the BIA’s priority over the next few years. Marketing the downtown was also a focus this year, with 17 bus benches featuring the “I Get It Downtown Maple Ridge” slogan. A consumer survey was also conducted, an Easter egg hunt took place, along with a seniors bazaar and fashion show.
The courtesy umbrella program, where shoppers were provided free umbrellas, also made it easier to shop in the core area. A Downtown Art and Heritage Walk brochure was created, as well. The BIA also recognized the District of Maple Ridge’s contribution to improving downtown. In the past four years, the district has spent $60 million on infrastructure improvements, such as roads and sidewalks. The downtown, though, could face some competition if and when
a shopping mall is built in Albion flats, at 105th Avenue and Lougheed Highway. Maple Ridge district will file an application this year to remove land from the Agricultural Land Reserve east of 105th Avenue. That’s expected to be approved. If SmartCentres developers can work out a land swap with the district, a mall could be built in Albion flats. BIA president Phillip Hartwick, however, said he wasn’t “overly concerned” about that development and how it might affect the downtown.

ideation in vulnerable students, said SD42 spokesperson Irena Pochop. “So shifting the focus of the conversation to mental health was seen as a safer, healthier and more constructive approach. Carol Todd herself has become a great mental health advocate, so this is the focus for her today as well,” she added. A few people chose to wear purple on Thursday, including Anelma Brown, vice-principal of Garibaldi secondary in Maple Ridge. Since Todd’s death, there has been a greater awareness of bullying and harassment, and schools in particular have worked hard to develop strategies to educate students about social media. For Brown, addressing bullying means building a school where everyone feels accepted. “We try our best to eradicate it, but it’s high school,” said Brown,

support of World Mental Health Day. “This is something we need to do to support one another and raise awareness about mental health issues,” Todd said. Through social media, Todd got cities in Australia, the U.K. and U.S. to pledge their support. Niagara Falls was set to light up purple on Thursday as was a bridge in Boston, the Los Angeles Airport, Mac the Moose in Moose Jaw, as well as Science World, B.C. Place and the Langevin Bridge in Calgary Alberta. In Maple Ridge, the school district decided to focus on Mental Health Day instead of focusing on Todd’s legacy, although she attended school in the local school district for a period. The concern – shared by other school districts – is that media coverage can contribute to already existing suicidal

noting that social media is a game changer for many students and staff. A few months before her death, Amanda made a video that described how she had been stalked and bullied online after “flashing” someone online. The video went viral after she died. “It’s easy to hide behind the anonymity of a screen and Tweet out. Unfortunately, it still hurts,” said Brown. “We’ve really gone out of our way to create a culture of care and a culture of acceptance at Garibaldi. I make a point of making letting students know that this is a place where everybody is welcome, that everybody is here to learn.”
Song for Amanda The story of Amanda Todd’s struggles with cyberbullying and depression after her online activities has been recreated in a tribute video. Released on the eve of the one-year anniversary of her death, the video recounts Todd’s story along with a song called Believe, by Maple Ridge singer Beatrice Sallis. Brent Hampton, a Port Coquitlam dad studying and working in the recording arts industry, was a consultant on the project and is helping to publicize the video. He said the images may be difficult to watch, but ultimately the message is positive because it encourages people to believe in themselves. “The whole purpose of the video, and I think the purpose in the end, is to show people that they don’t have to succumb to people’s suggestions of what they think of you.” – with files from the Tri-City News. • For video link for the song @ mapleridgenews.com.

Hazmat accident rates are down 91 percent since 1980
LIFE To Your Years
Canadian Pacific Railway assured the City of Pitt Meadows on Tuesday that there were ample emergency measures in place to prevent a deadly disaster, such as the one in Lac Megantic, Que. Detailing the company’s plans and frequency of inspections, Rick Poznikoff, CP’s senior manager of community relations, stressed safety was a top priority for the company. He told council that tracks leading into and out of Pitt Meadows are visually checked weekly and every six weeks with an ultrasonic device. Locomotives and train cars are inspected frequently and the transport of dangerous goods is highly controlled. “We are the safest railway in North America,” said Poznikoff, as he outlined the steps the

Other statistics show accidents have dropped 38 percent since 2000. “But like any mode of transportation, things do happen,” said Poznikoff.
“Planes do fall out of the sky and trains do derail. That’s why we have an emergency plan.” The call to meet with CP officials comes three months after a runaway train carrying crude oil destroyed much of the Quebec town of Lac Megantic. Pitt Meadows requested to meet with the company after hearing from concerned residents.

“The disaster in Megantic was a tragic event and it did emphasize the need to make this meeting happen as soon as possible,” said Mayor Deb Walters “I am sure that most communities across Canada that have intermodal yards in their towns felt the same urgency.” CPR’s 22,500-kilometre (14,000-mile) network extends from the Port of Vancouver in Canada’s west to The Port of Montreal in Canada’s east, and to the U.S. industrial centres of Chicago, Newark, Philadelphia, Washington, New York City and Buffalo. In Pitt Meadows, the company owns 83 hectares of land, 20 of which is an intermodal yard with the rest slated for possible expansion. CP told council it worked closely with both city staff and the fire department on a variety of concerns from working together on emergency planning to addressing trespassers and repairing holes in fences. Walters said CP’s presentation reassured council that the company has an extensive safety program in place that addresses tracks, cars and engines. She added the city will continue to meet with the railway quarterly to address rail-related issues, such as the speed of trains, train lengths and faulty crossings. A query about a separated crossing over the train tracks at Harris Road elicited a disappointing response from CP. The crossing remains a bottle neck and point of frustration for commuters. Walters said CP doesn’t plan to partner anytime soon for a crossing at Harris Rd.

Girl Guide registration fee doubled Brownies from front
She challenged the board’s assertion that the new rental rates are set on a cost-recovery basis. “If a gymnasium is open anyway, the custodian is on the job, the heat is on and the lights are on, how is this cost recovery?” She noted that fees for some groups have risen dramatically. The First Laity Girl Guides now charge $235 a year for Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers groups, which is an increase of $90. She has personally heard from two parents who have said they will not be able to afford the fees, and believes there are more who have not spoken up, but will look for more affordable activities for their children. Kent also reminded the board that schools have traditionally been made available to the
community, because they are public facilities. “Our parents are taxpayers. We all pay taxes. We all pay school taxes. We are, in effect, the owners of these schools.” And, she said, having community groups using schools in the evening reduces vandalism to the buildings – such as the recent theft of copper water pipes from underneath Webster’s Corners elementary. “These are community resources. However, your rental fees will cause them to sit empty for much of the year,” Kent told the board. Some guiding groups have already secured more affordable rental rates at churches and community centres. School board chair Mike Murray responded that trustees are “in the unenviable posi-
tion of having to look in every nook and cranny for savings,” due to a tight budget situation. Kent acknowledged that, and said she is sending letters to both MLAs for the community. Murray said the board will review the request. “We very much value the work of the Girl
million budget for the 2013-2014 school year, which resulted in the loss of 35 positions, as well as other cuts. He noted that the board has been subsidizing facility rentals with artificially low rates for a long time. “Our No. 1 priority is the classroom. We would far rather be able to open our facilities to all groups at no
“We very much value the work of the Girl Guides and other non-profit groups who provide children with opportunities.” Mike Murray, school board chair Guides and other nonprofit groups who provide children with opportunities,” he said after the meeting. “But we’re in a very challenging place in terms of our budgets.” This year, the board had to find savings of $5.7 million in its $130
cost, but we can’t.” There are four Girl Guide groups in the community: Alouette has 284 girls; Pitt Meadows, 130; Laity, 96; and Port Hammond, 75. There are also about 141 adults members involved with the four groups.

Tenants call for Maple Ridge to add bed bugs to maintenance bylaw by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter
Tenants of an apartment complex plagued by bed bugs want the District of Maple Ridge
to eradicate the infestation once and for all. The Sunrise Apartments on 122nd Avenue has been repeatedly sprayed for the pest, but people who live in the building claim bed bugs
continue to persist. Cassandra Korchinski says bylaw officers visited her suite on Friday, but she remains annoyed by the district’s response. The district has asked her and other tenants
A word from a
to list their concerns in individual letters, but have indicated they can’t do much about the bed bugs, mice or fleas at present. “It’s really frustrating,” said Korchinski,
n Ken Gibso
who wants the district to amend its standards of maintenance bylaw to include pest control. “We’ve been writing letters for eight months to the building managers and nothing’s been done.” Korchinski has since moved out of the building because her daughters were being bitten by fleas and developed respiratory problems. Bylaws director Liz Holitzki assures tenants that the district is still looking into the file. The inspections done last week were cursory, she explained. “It’s not just the Sunrise Apartments. Bed bugs are an issue in other apartments in Maple Ridge,” said Holitzki. Holitzki wants to make sure that the district will have the authority to enforce a pest control amendment, should one go forward. “There’s no point in amending something if it can’t be enforced,” she added. The district intends to consult the City of New Westminster which has a clause about pest control in its bylaws. Laura Ceklanovic meanwhile has spent the week throwing everything she owns into a dumpster. She fled the Sunrise last week after learning her suite was infested with bed bugs.
A Care Pest Control van parked outside the Sunrise Apartments in Maple Ridge. She spent the first night in a homeless shelter in White Rock but has now found a new place to live. “I can only take stuff that I can freeze or wash,” said Ceklanovic who claims she found a live bed bug even after her suite was sprayed. “The spraying isn’t killing the bugs. It’s just going to move them from apartment to apartment.” The bed bug infestation has left Ceklanovic, a single mom, with little to no possessions. She doesn’t have money to do laundry but the
most painful experience was throwing out all her son’s toys and books. “I’m exhausted,” she says. “There is nothing out there to help people in a situation like mine.”
Donate Laura Ceklanovic needs help with her laundry, but is also looking for a pair of winter boots for her three-year-old son, as well as a few books and toys. If you can help, email her at lauraceklanovic3673@ gmail.com.

Two fugitives found hiding in Maple Ridge were among 51 people this year shipped from B.C. across the country to face charges. Derek Jason Silva was arrested in April by Ridge Meadows RCMP on outstanding charges in Ontario, including sexual assault, uttering threats, assault and invitation to sexual touching. Silva, whose extensive criminal record dates back to 1996, was seen a good candidate for B.C.’s Fugitive Return Program, which marks its second anniversary this year. Since September 2011, 51 fugitives, often wanted for violent offences, were sent back to face charges in other provinces. David MacGillivray was arrested by Ridge Meadows RCMP in March and flown back to Red Deer, Alta., where he was wanted on charges of uttering death threats, possession of a firearm and mischief. “The Fugitive Return Program sends a clear message to those wanted on arrest warrants that they cannot simply skip town to avoid being arrested,” said Insp. Mike Cumberworth, in charge of the Vancouver Police general investigation section. For a person to qualify for the fugitive return program, there needs to be an outstanding warrant for their arrest. Managed by the RCMP and Vancouver Police Department, the B.C. Fugitive Return Program is funded by the Civil Forfeiture Office. Local police departments from across the province are able to recommend wanted fugitives for removal from the province. The program coordinators then work with the police force and province that issued the warrant to arrange their return. The ongoing financial support from the province contributed to a 60 per cent increase in the number of fugitives returned in 2012. The program anticipates a further 20 per cent rise this year. “Fugitive returns are one of the key ways we support crime prevention with civil forfeiture proceeds,” said B.C.’s attorney general, Suzanne Anton. “The vast majority of civil forfeiture actions stem from a criminal investigation, so it’s fitting that we have used recovered funds to send 51 prolific and violent offenders back to the jurisdictions where they have outstanding warrants. All of this work helps keep our communities safe.”

Grateful for those who help our elders
always find the time around Thanksgiving a good opportunity to be reflective, with the intent of finding things for which to be grateful. Since I have changed from writing about child care to elder care, I have found the weekly selection of topics to be more challenging. It’s not that parenting isn’t challenging; we all know that’s a certainty. But parenting is about helping your children speed to independence. Elder care is about trying to slow down the speed of a downhill train. I must confess that I am often left with a sincere sense of gratitude when I do research on the topics of elder care. Reading the stories of others provides perspective against which one’s own difficulties can seem more an annoyance than a true obstacle. Learning to focus our attention away from ourselves, sometimes by noticing the misfortune of others, has a way of making us recognize just how fortunate we are. In the past year, have friends or family members passed away? Let’s start at the beginning of gratitude. Life is short. As each of us looks back on our life, we may all get a common feeling that it seems to be flying by. The older we get, the faster time seems to go. Thus, ev-

Appreciative Christina Roth reads to son Ciarran, 4, who’s eating a cake while three-month-old sibling Christian sleeps, during Customer Appreciation Day at the Maple Ridge Public Library on Tuesday. The event also featured a spinning wheel for prizes and prize bags of books, as well as information about downloading free books onto tablets and e-readers.
Vaccination information for students Parents can ensure their children are protected from harmful diseases by taking advantage of regular school-based immunization clinics getting underway this fall. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control and Immunize B.C. are urging parents to review their children’s immunization records and keep vaccination schedules up to date. Many students are now receiving vaccination information and school-based schedules from their school’s public health nurses. Recent reports in British Columbia of measles and pertussis (whooping cough) outbreaks point to the need to focus attention on the importance of vaccinations for all age groups. Most kids in kindergarten or those starting high school need a booster shot for illnesses such as tetanus, chicken pox and meningitis group C. The current B.C. immunization schedule is comprised of vaccines that protect against 13 infectious diseases, including diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, Haemophilus influenzae b, hepatitis B, meningococcal group C disease, measles, mumps, rubella, and chickenpox.

Cruise Q&A Night
Don’t we live in a crazy world? I
previously wrote about a motion by the City of Victoria at last month’s conference for the Union of B.C. Municipalities, for a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h on all residential streets. Unfortunately, it got shot down. I’m sure that, in their hearts, decision makers know it’s the right thing to do. But they’re afraid of the ire of drivers, and their revenge come the next election. Talking about speeding, remember the verdict that got so many headlines recently, about the nurse who had had a rough day at work? She burst into tears when she noticed some vomit on her clothes, and through her tears couldn’t see on her speedometer that she was going way over the speed limit and that she was going through a red light? She ended up killing two young people. Madam Justice Miriam Gropper felt that ‘oh, well, everybody speeds.’ And running a red light? ‘It happens.’ The judge consequently acquitted the young woman of dangerous driving causing death. Message to drivers: ‘Go ahead, keep disobeying the law. It’s OK, because everybody does it.’ Don’t we live in a crazy world? Often cyclists are being singled out by noncyclists for their scofflaw behavior. Some of the most cited behaviours that seem to irritate some people to no end: • cycling on the sidewalk (which is actually legal in Maple Ridge, and which in other places usually happens because people are aware of their vulnerability, having to share the road with two-ton vehicles, the drivers of
which are not always considerate when a cyclist dares to block their path); • riding without a helmet (which sometimes provokes angry comments, such as ‘we should confiscate people’s bikes if they don’t wear a helmet,’ but which in fact has never harmed anyone but potentially the person without a helmet); • not stopping for stop signs. I certainly don’t encourage people on bikes to disobey the law, but I do understand why some of these things happen. Following the rules of the road, which were made for cars, sometimes doesn’t make much sense for people on bikes. The important thing to remember here is that only in rare cases might any of these types of offenses result in death or severe injury of anyone other than the cyclist. When it comes to speeding, though, drivers are generally confident they won’t cause an accident. But according to ICBC traffic collision statistics, of the Top 5 contributing factors in 2007 fatal collisions, speed was first, at 41.4 per cent. Some more figures obtained from ICBC: 8,200 speed-related collisions injured 5,500 people and resulted in 161 fatalities (annual averages over 2003-2007). A disproportionate number of vulnerable road users – pedestrians and cyclists – end up being victims of car collisions, including those where speed is a contributing factor. To illustrate the dramatic effect that reduced speeds have in case of a crash, consider: • a pedestrian hit at 50 km/h has an 80 per cent chance of being killed; • a pedestrian hit at 30 km/h has a 10 per cent chance of being killed.

Contentious new rules need provincial approval by J eff Nagel Black Press
It may soon fall to the province to decide whether Metro Vancouver can ban the export of garbage beyond its boundaries, putting what some say is an unfair limit on business. A proposed waste flow bylaw that’s been fought by garbage haulers was swiftly approved by Metro’s zero waste committee Oct. 3 and is expected to get support from the full board, sending it to the provincial environment ministry for approval. The committee vote was 6-2 in favour. The bylaw would ban shipments to unapproved out-of-region destinations, such as an Abbotsford transfer station that is capturing a growing share of the waste business. Some haulers pay an estimated $70 per tonne to dump there, rather than $107 per tonne charged by Metro Vancouver at in-region transfer stations, and they don’t face Metro-imposed bans on dumping various recyclables. Their ability to undercut other haulers that pay full Metro tipping fees and abide by the bans are resulting in a growing flow of garbage east that Metro directors say must be stopped so the regional district isn’t bled of critical revenue.

“Waste is leaving the system and that means we’re not achieving our environmental goals, our diversion goals and we’re losing revenue to support Metro Vancouver programs,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who chairs the waste committee. Some business groups have denounced the bylaw as one that will force customers to pay more than necessary. Their objections have been amplified by paid lobbyists – including former B.C. Liberal MLA John Les (Chilliwack), who represents the Cache Creek landfill operators – as well as some Metro directors. “I don’t think Metro Vancouver should be creating a monopoly on something like garbage,” Smith, arguing the region shouldn’t frustrate free enterprise or business creativity in finding new waste solutions.
“Metro Vancouver continues on a crash course to raise costs for residents and businesses alike,” Grant Hankins, district manager for hauling firm BFI Canada, told the committee. “You’re picking winners and losers.” An earlier version of the bylaw was defeated in September, but it was quickly retooled and revived. One change would allow cities to exempt specific apartment buildings from the requirement coming in 2015 to separate all organic food waste. Garbage from those buildings would have to go to an approved material recovery facility, where organics and other recyclables would be extracted from waste. The bylaw creates some room for mixed-waste recovery facilities, which proponents say could pull out much more recyclable material that’s now dumped or incinerated, helping lift the poor 15 per cent recycling rate in multifamily buildings. Exempting select older apartment buildings from the organics ban
will also solve a major problem for cities, which weren’t sure how it could be implemented in some cases. Metro has been accused of trying to pen up garbage in the region to feed a future new garbage incinerator. But the bylaw is also backed by recycling businesses that say they have flourished under Metro’s source separation policies, which would be undermined without the imposition of flow control rules. “If all this material was being exported or if all this material was being owned by haulers who have transfer stations we would never have access to this material,” said Nicole Stefenelli of the Recycle First Coalition. The Cache Creek landfill would continue to be an approved regional facility under the new rules, at least until Metro opens a new waste-toenergy plant and stops using the Interior dump. Some incineration opponents hope that plan fails and Metro is forced i ofld fkdsgl to keep trucking waste jhy hjhto fh assd vvj ;gkfd;lsgk ds;jaf;s sl jf dk as k fd fs Cache ldsk Creek.ofldsjgkld ldajgfklja fds;’n gli

TransLink sets aside $300m to fix Pattullo Bridge TransLink is earmarking nearly $300 million to rehabilitate the aging Pattullo Bridge over the next three years even though the structure could be torn down soon after the work is done. But officials at the regional transportation authority insist they will try not to spend the money unnecessarily and are hopeful the bulk of the outlay can be averted if a decision on replacing the Pattullo with a new bridge can be made soon enough. The projected amount to be spent repairing the bridge has doubled from a previous estimate of $150 million to $299 million after work on the span this summer gave TransLink a better idea of what is needed. Executive vice-president of policy and strategic planning Bob Paddon said the rehab work could begin as soon as 2015 and he hopes a decision on the Pattullo’s re-
placement will be made in 2014. But even a quick decision on replacement won’t avert the need to expend a significant amount fixing the old bridge, Paddon said, because those repairs will be necessary before a new bridge opens. “We will need to spend some money though because even if we have a decision we’re still going to have to figure out how to fund it and then you have to build it,” he said at a recent meeting of Metro Vancouver mayors. Much of the required work is on the bridge deck itself, in addition to seismic upgrades. CEO Ian Jarvis said TransLink is required to plan for the rehabilitation scenario in its new base plan, because it has no revenue secured yet to replace the bridge. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said it would be much better to divert Pattullo upgrade spending to increased bus and SkyTrain service, if possible.

“We want to put as much into [transit] service as we possibly can,” Jarvis responded. Public consultation found most respondents back a new six-lane Pattullo, but the idea was opposed by most New Westminster residents, who would rather trucks and other traffic from Surrey somehow bypass their city. TransLink has winnowed 25 bridge replacement configurations down to six. It aims to short-list two or three preferred options this winter ahead of a final choice – if the cities of Surrey and New Westminster can unite behind one. It’s assumed the new $1-billion-plus crossing would be paid for through tolls but no decision has been made on financing. The Pattullo could be knocked out of service by a moderate earthquake or a ship collision, and is at risk of being undermined by river scour, according to TransLink reports.

Metro planners question new bridge Effect of tolls on traffic one of many gaps, report says by J eff Nagel Black Press
Metro Vancouver staff are warning the province’s plan to replace the Massey Tunnel with a large new bridge could run counter to regional land-use goals. A report coming to Metro’s transportation committee from senior regional planner Ray Kan cautions that a big new bridge may “unleash pent-up demand” and spur more people to drive on the Highway 99 corridor, or prompt transit riders and car pool users to instead drive alone. “Unfettered access could easily result in a congested facility,” his report said. “Further, an expanded facility may simply move the ‘bottleneck’ further downstream or upstream.” The report says more
information is needed and much of the potential impact on regional growth may depend on whether the new bridge is tolled or not. Provincial officials have so far avoided talk of tolls on the promised bridge, and have said they don’t expect to estimate the effect of tolls on projected traffic flows until next spring. There is no detailed business case yet out for the project and the number of bridge lanes isn’t finalized. The head of the province’s Gateway program last month said traffic patterns have changed since Victoria last considered and rejected a replacement of the tunnel. The Metro report says the premier’s Sept. 20 announcement of a new bridge was “unexpected” due to the absence of more technical analysis and since “only limited information” has been provided by the province on the proposal. “It is unclear what basic demographic as-
sumptions the ministry has been using to justify the proposed capacity on the bridge,” Kan’s report said, adding it’s also unclear what assumptions are built in on the potential expansion of port terminals at Roberts Bank and Fraser Surrey Docks. The bridge announcement throws a wrench into a number of planning initiatives. Metro’s regional growth strategy didn’t anticipate a possible shift in growth pressure that might come from replacing the tunnel with a much larger bridge, he said. Kan also said the uncertainty around the new bridge casts doubt on the validity of technical work being carried out by TransLink for its new regional transportation strategy, a regional goods movement strategy that has been in the works for several months, as well as the ongoing Pattullo Bridge replacement review. A new bridge would meet modern seismic
and lane width standards and provide direct access for cyclists and pedestrians, the report said, as well as bettter lane allocations for trucks and high-occupancy vehicles. But care would have to be taken to ensure it doesn’t undermine regional goals to contain growth, control air pollution and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Buses make up just one per cent of vehicles going through the tunnel, but carry 26 per cent of the people, thanks to dedicated lanes and queuejumper ramps that speed buses past traffic jams on Highway 99. Several Metro Vancouver mayors have already been critical of the bridge plan, voicing concerns that the cost of up to $3 billion could push back their top priority – transit improvements. Some suggest the bridge also be subjected to a referendum, if the province insists on one to approve funding sources for transit expansion. rmhfoundation

B.C. Hydro has formally applied to the B.C. Utilities Commission for approval of extra fees for people who refuse to use the utility’s wireless electricity meters. B.C. Hydro’s application details costs expected for staff, vehicles and equipment for manual collection of meter readings, and adjusting the smart grid software and hardware to compensate for nontransmitting meters. It also estimates the cost of extra checks for electricity theft in areas where mechanical meters remain. Portable “check meters” are to be deployed to find unexplained power losses in those sections of the grid. “These check meters are $2,000 per unit, and it is anticipated that an additional 200 to 500
units will be required,” the application states. The 130-page application seeks BCUC approval to impose fees announced by B.C. Hydro in September. It confirms that people who keep their old mechanical meter are to be charged $35 a month, while those who choose a wireless meter with the radio transmitter disabled will be charged a $100 setup fee an $20 a month for manual collection of readings, starting April 1. The BCUC could reduce the fees if it finds them to be excessive, or increase them if that is justified. The $35 per month fee will be charged to customers with mechanical meters starting Dec. 1, and will be adjusted later if the BCUC changes the fee. A cabinet order issued by Energy Minister Bill Bennett in September instructs the BCUC to

approve fees that cover the actual cost to B.C. Hydro of accommodating people who refuse to take part in the wireless monitoring system for the province-wide electricity grid. The cabinet order also demands customers be charged for “failed installations,” if technicians are turned away or access to the B.C. Hydro-owned meter is blocked. B.C.

Forget smart meters, check your smoke detector, says Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis. Nearly 80 per cent of people who die in fires don’t have a working smoke alarm. The total number of smart meter-related fires in B.C. remains at zero.
28 -- Friday, October 11, 2013 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
Fewer electrical fires in B.C.: commissioner the Fraser Valley. After successfully pushing for a 2006 law allowing fire departments to find indoor marijuana grow operations by their electrical usage,
Garis has continued to assess the effects of B.C. Hydro’s smart grid program on preventing fires. Adding another year of fire statistics, from June 2012 to June 2013, shows a continued decline in electrical fires, including those related to illegal electrical bypasses and hot grow lamps found to be connected with illegal marijuana growing. Garis noted that the data show electrical fires of all sorts account for only a small part of all structure fires in B.C. Out of 1,801 total residential fires in the latest year available, 150 were found to be caused by electrical discharge. That’s a 12.3 per cent decline since 2011, when the smart meter program began. The reports show that over three years, only one fire originated on an exterior wall, ignited by an electrical panel board. That was in 2011, before smart meter installation began. There have been no fires attributed to the meter program, with 1.8 million wireless meters installed. Fires caused by illegal meter bypasses dropped from eight in 2011 to six in 2012 to only three in 2013. B.C. Hydro has reported that installers located and removed illegal bypasses around the province as part of the smart meter program, and also replaced 1,200 meter bases found to be faulty. Garis said the results clearly show that people should not worry about their electrical meters, and pay attention to by far the largest sources of house fires: cooking and smoking. The statistics show that cooking-related fires are on the increase, even as total residential fires have declined in B.C. Of 1,998 total fires reported in 2011, 575 were ignited by cooking equipment. In 2013, total fires declined to 1,801 but the number of cooking fires rose to 621. Fires caused by smoking declined by 11 per cent for 2013, but there were still 302 fires ignited by smoking materials. Garis said the statistic of most concern is that 79 per cent of people who died in fires, whatever the source, were in a home without a working smoke detector.

SOLO District’s second phase, Altus, will feature Club 55 on its top floor, with a barbecue area, full kitchen, media area, and billiards, poker and ping-pong tables, as well as outdoor deck space. SOLO District is rapidly becoming an iconic part of the Burnaby skyline, and will eventually include four residential towers.
Redefining North Burnaby at Appia’s SOLO District By Kerry Vital
Appia Development has deep roots in North Burnaby, and this continues with SOLO District, which will soon become an iconic part of the skyline. SOLO District, which stands for South Of Lougheed, continues to draw potential buyers into the presentation centre every day to check out the condominium homes, amazing amenities and

community feel. “People are embracing the community concept,” says Lisa Murrell, sales and marketing manager for Appia. “Everything about SOLO District is about quality, from the retailers to the suites themselves.” The latest phase at SOLO District is Altus, which will become the tallest building in Burnaby at the equivalent of 55 storeys, with office space on the first 14 floors and homes from 200 feet up so every homeowner can enjoy amazing views. The homes range from approximately 534 to 1,709 square feet in a variety of one-, twoand three-bedroom floorplans. The threebedroom homes are a new plan that Appia is proud to be able to offer buyers at Altus. Inside, you’ll find luxurious finishes such as nine-foot ceilings, laminate wood flooring in
the living areas and the choice of two designer colour schemes, Grigio and Noce. The kitchens feature imported Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry, polished quartz countertops and a quartz slab backsplash, complemented by stainless-steel appliances and under-cabinet task lighting. The relaxing bathrooms hold their own Italian Armony Cucine cabinetry and quartz countertops, as well as a luxurious soaker tub and large porcelain floor tiles and wall tile for the tub surround and shower wall. Select ensuites feature an enclosed glass shower. One of the most exciting parts of Altus is Club 55 on its top floor, with a barbecue area, full kitchen, media area and billiards, poker and ping-pong tables and a large outdoor deck space. The office tower will hold a fully equipped gym, and a multi-sport court on the
third floor, while the 15th floor will include a roof terrace with outdoor seating, a barbecue area and a wet bar. SOLO District itself is one of the most exciting properties in the Lower Mainland real estate market. It will eventually be comprised of four residential towers and over 1,400 homes. Construction is currently ongoing for the first and second phases, Stratus and Altus, with future phases Cirrus and Aerius to follow. The community will also include Burnaby’s first Whole Foods, commercial opportunities, office space and tons of green space. 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. Golf courses, parks and fitness facilities are also nearby. “People will be hard-pressed to find a more complete community of this calibre,” says Murrell. SOLO District and Appia is currently offering a fantastic promotion they are calling The Perfect Home Ownership Plan. The next 75 qualified buyers will get savings of up to 60 per cent on mortgage payments for a limited time, discounts on transit passes for those who commute farther than three kilometres on a regular basis and no payments for up to 180 days after the purchase of one of the select homes at SOLO District. This promotion is being offered to buyers who are Burnaby residents, plan to live or have a family member live at SOLO District or will be attending a post-secondary institution in Burnaby such as Simon Fraser University or the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Homes at SOLO District start at $293,900. For more information, visit www. solodistrict.com, call 604-298-8800 or visit the presentation centre at 2131 Willingdon Avenue, open daily except Friday between noon and 5 p.m.

Six Reasons to Hellebore-Up By Mike Lascelle
here are certain time-honoured traditions that we have all come to expect of autumn – the long-awaited start of the hockey season, turkey and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, and the much anticipated article about my favourite perennial, Helleborus. This is the time of the year when these often slow-growing beauties are finally ready for sale and we get to see which new introductions are available locally. For collector’s, there is that same urgency that I often see at women’s shoe sales, except that gardeners display a much more restrained frenzy when drooling over the many possibilities. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, consider the following as nothing more than mere propaganda, or perhaps a few good reasons to find out what all this praise is about. 1. Six months of flowering – starting with the early blooming Christmas Rose, or Helleborus niger cultivars (‘Jacob’, ‘Josef Lemper’, ‘Jonas’), which open their pure white blooms from mid to late November, carrying through with many of the newer evergreen hybrids (Helleborus x nigercors and ballardiae) and ending with the February to early May multicolour blooms of Lenten Rose (Helleborus x hybridus), with a little planning, you can have a solid six months of winter flowers. 2. Every colour of the rainbow – whether you’re an Alba garden snob (I mean this in the nicest way possible) or looking for some near black flowered plants for a Gothic look, there’s a Hellebore for you somewhere. We have apple green (H. corsicus and foetidus), dark burgundy, yellow (‘Golden Lotus’), red, slate blue (‘Metallic Blue Lady’), pink, amber and pure unadulterated white. These blooms are often accented with spotting, picotees and darker veining, and the flower form itself ranges from singles, doubles, semi-doubles and anemone. 3. Sun, part sun or shade – while many gardeners consider Hellebores as strictly
(Clockwise from left) Helleborus ‘Mardi Gras Double Mix’; Helleborus ‘Anna’s Red’; and Helleborus ‘Black Jubilee’.
shade plants, here in coastal B.C. we have many more options. Some of them are quite sun tolerant including Helleborus x sternii and corsicus, all of the Lenten Roses (Helleborus x hybridus) perform best with morning or late afternoon sun, and Helleborus niger will tolerate deep shade, although it’s best located under a deciduous tree, so that a little winter sun can peek through. 4. The deer don’t eat them – as we keep pushing our homes further and further away from the city core, removing the forests as we go – the remaining deer are left with little choice but to eat the food we have left them, which happens to be our
gardens. Since Hellebores are highly toxic plants (when ingested) and were once used to poison the water supply during the Greek siege of Kirrha in 585BC, the deer have the common sense to leave them alone. 5. They grow in containers – even if you have limited space you can still grow Hellebores in containers, and many of the early blooming Christmas Roses in the HGC Collection can even be brought indoors like a houseplant (when in flower) for short periods of time (7-10 days). 6. Many are beautiful foliage plants – Most of the newer Helleborus x nigercors, x ballardiae or ‘Rodney Davey Marbled Group’ are reliably evergreen and a choice

few have foliage that rivals the flowers – ‘Anna’s Red’, ‘Penny’s Pink’ and ‘Moonlit Marble’ come to mind here. A hint of silver can be found on Helleborus x sternii ‘Silver Dollar’ and the black-flowered Lenten Roses are also worth considering, as the new growth often emerges a deep purple.

Ramblers runners winning This year is shaping up to be one of the best for the Maple Ridge secondary cross-country running team. This week the team competed against many Fraser Valley schools at the Triple C Invitational meet at Mundy Park. Emily Morley won the Grade 8 division by over one minute, while Ryan Ibbitt ran away from the rest of the field in the Grade 10 division. In fact, Ridge athletes did well in all races, with second and third place finishes by Monique Lisek and Nicholas Cowley and many other top 10 finishes by other Ridge athletes.

James Eccles, the first full-time director of hockey development for the Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association, said players need work on their puckhandling skills.
Focused on development Banners are not the goal in first year says, James eccles by Neil Corbe tt staff reporter
eams from the Western Hockey League are going to want to draft bantams from Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey, and the midgets will be sought-after prospects for the major midget league. That’s the goal of the association’s new director of hockey development James Eccles. “My goals for this year ... it’s not banners,” he said. “That’s not what we’re here for.” Approaching the game with a “win now” attitude can actually hinder development, he asserts. Rigid systems play is the enemy. Eccles doesn’t want to see Maple Ridge produce checking drones, who are most adept at the dumpand-chase game, or clearing pucks off the glass. “The trap has slowed our game down, and decreased the skills in our players,” said Eccles. Hockey Canada has researched the issue, and acknowledged that Canadian prospects who are coached to win games, rather than develop skills, become “too robotic” in their play. Rather, his focus is on developing skilled players.
The RMMHA kids who are just starting hockey for the first time this season, what does he want them to look like, when they hit bantam hockey some eight seasons from now? “You’re going to see a fast, creative breed of hockey player.” Eccles has done a lot of analysis of what has been happening in minor hockey here, and doesn’t see a need to reinvent the wheel. “The children have great development occurring, but there’s room for more success,” he said. Stick skills will be an area of focus. The association has many good coaches, and has put a lot of emphasis on skating. Now, more incorporation of skating with pucks will produce more skillful players. Eccles is taking a page out of the European playbook, and has obtained two buckets of steel pucks. They are more than twice as heavy as vulcanized rubber pucks, but once the players get the traditional biscuit back on their sticks after using steel, they have a better feel for the puck. Stick battling is another skill he would like to see emphasized, and this is especially important given that bodychecking is no longer allowed in hockey until the bantam age group. He wants kids to fall in love with hockey the way he did, and their coaches did. “They’ve got to come out, and then want more.” Gone are the days when 14 kids
stand in a lineup while one skates through cones. Today’s coaches keep the entire group busy at once, and Eccles takes it to the extremes. “Kids need to move. Kids need to be energetic, and they need to be having fun.” To that end, he promotes smallarea games. He is running three skill development sessions, free for players, each Saturday and Sunda, beginning at 6:45 a.m. Players can sign up on the RMMHA website. Each session has a maximum of 30 players, “or it’s a fish farm.”
“You’re going to see a fast, creative breed of hockey player.” James eccles Director of hockey development “We work on fundamental skills that coaches don’t have time for, and we work on small-area games,” he said. He said players who are in hockey for the first time and other late starters are some of the biggest beneficiaries. Kids who started the year at a place where they can just stand up on their skates are already skating and pushing the puck ahead of themselves. “You get a lot of pride out of that,” he said.
The association has other opportunities for more ice time, and has goaltender development every Tuesday night. About every three weeks, he will also be doing coaching development sessions. Each will have a theme for the skate, such as creating offence or developing defencemen. Part of his job is evaluating coaches, and so far he has been impressed with their dedication. “I’m the first one to defend those guys,” he said. “I’m criticized and critiqued too – that’s what happens when you become a coach.” Eccles played minor hockey in Abbotsford, and donned the Ridge Meadows Flames jersey in 1996. After junior hockey, he played four seasons at Kent State University, then coached for three seasons in the NCAA at State University in New York. His other coaching experience includes assistant with the BCHL Westside Warriors, major midget, and instructor for Hockey Canada Skills Academy for the Kelowna School District. Asked whether his focus is on rep teams, Eccles said the goal is to improve everyone. By heightening the overall skill level of the youngest players coming into the association, the most outstanding players will rise. “And the good outcomes will come – the Ws.” He’s loving the job. “I wake up in the morning, and I get to go play hockey with kids.”
Knights win four of five
The Meadow Ridge Knights went four forfive last weekend, with a strong showing at the atom level. The Atom Gold Knights knocked off the Bears in Langley, 2422, and the Atom Blue Knights earned a win in Mission 32-25 over the Niners. The PeeWee Gold Knights travelled to Langley for a 12-0 win over the Bears. Linebackers, James Ross, Tyson Phare and Kurtis Brown kept the Bears penned in, allowing only three first downs all game. QB Riley Celino, found the endzone, as did running back Eric Clark. The PeeWee Blue Knights lost 46-0 to the undefeated Mission Niner’s The Junior Bantam Knights snapped a four- game losing streak against the Niners with a 19-0 win in Mission. Some old school defence, led by Riley Durante and Cole Leon, negated the Niner ground game. Liam Cummurasamy and Adam Brass smothered Mission’s receivers and took away the air. Anthony Cameron and Tim Janke found the end-zone, and Brandon Hunt returned a punt for a touchdown to cap off victory.

Varying intensity works for women M
ost of the older studies done regarding improvements in strength and power have been done on male athletes. But some studies over the last decade have begun to look at the benefit of changing the weekly structure (called periodization) of weight training for women on strength development over long periods (up to 24 weeks). The results of the studies show that a type of weekly plan called undulating periodization is more beneficial than a regular circuit style of program and that the increases in strength can be even more dramatic in women than men. Undulating programs involve varying the intensity of your three weekly strength sessions so that one day is very hard, one is moderate intensity and the other is between these two in intensity level. Since women are seeing the benefit of improving their muscle strength on bone health, and reducing risk factors such as diabetes, obesity, arthritis it is even more important to know the best ways to improve strength. Periodization exercise programs really began about sixty years ago where European coaches, especially eastern-block coaches, were developing some of the world class athletes of that period. The athletes found that once they reached a plateau in fitness, they just couldn’t appreciably improve by simply training harder and harder. So the trainers and coaches experimented with altering their athletes’ training schedules. They methodically had the athlete complete resistance training phases that included high-volume, low-intensity resistance workouts, and then alternated these cycles with low-volume, high-intensity training phases. The positive results in performance that was created turned out to have radical implications on the future of athletic training.
In one of the recent studies done on a group of active young women (average age of 24) the periodized group had a much greater increase for all categories that were tested. Bench press and leg press increased approximately 40% compared to 12% with the circuit group. The periodized group also exhibited higher percent increases for sit-ups performed in one-minute, sprinting peak power, vertical jump power, and time improvement in the 40-yard dash, all improved more than the circuit group. The differences in improvement were up to 42% on the periodized plan vs as low as 4% on the standard program.
