Cedar mill fire sparks evacuations neighbours want hammond operation to deal with sawdust by Moni s ha M ar tin s staff reporter

Homes near a century-old Maple Ridge cedar mill were evacuated early Thursday after a fire sparked in sawdust. The Maple Ridge Fire Department rushed to Hammond Cedar around 5:30 a.m. after receiving a call about flames in the mill’s dust collection system. By the time crews arrived, the fire had spread into a silo. The fire department said the mill was concerned that the heat may cause the structure to explode. “My concern was I didn’t know how big the event would be,” added Maple Ridge deputy fire chief Howard Exner. “If they even blew a rivet off the side and it went through a window and hit somebody, that would be bad.” As a precaution, Ridge Meadows RCMP moved to evacuate homes adjacent to the Interfor-owned mill. see Mill, p11

Bert Pogany says sawdust from Hammond Cedar Mill coats his truck every morning.

A family of six escaped unscathed after a 70-year-old house at 223rd Street and 119th Avenue was set ablaze.

A family of six escaped unscathed after fire ravaged a 70-year-old house early Wednesday in downtown Maple Ridge. The Evanows have rented the home, at the corner of 223rd Street and 119th Avenue, for the past eight years. It was one of two original

farm homes in downtown Maple Ridge. Everyone was asleep when the fire started at 5:33 a.m. But one of the sons awoke to the sound of a smoke alarm and woke the rest of the family up. “Thank God,” said Christina Evanow, wrapped in a bed sheet outside her charred home. She lived in the house with her husband and four children, ages 14-20. She awoke to her son yelling, then heard crackling, “like a zipper.” She said the west side of the house, by the kitchen, was a wall of flames,

which were shooting through the roof. The family ran out of the east doorway, on to 223rd St., in their pyjamas and were unable to grab any other possessions. They aren’t sure what they will be able to salvage when they are allowed back inside. Neighbours gave them blankets and sheets. “I don’t know what we are going to do,” Evanow said. Her boys will need shoes. “Size 17.” A preliminary investigation by the

fire department found that the fire started on the outside and was lit under “suspicious” circumstances. It was one of three fires started in the span of an hour in the district’s downtown core. The other fires were set in a dumpster on 225th Street, near Lougheed Highway, and a second home, on Garden Street. “The back of the house was well involved when we arrived,” assistant fire chief Howard Exner said as crews continued to spray hot spots with a fire hose at the first house two hours later. see Fires, p5

Maple Ridge This Month MID MONTH UPDATE: NOVEMBER 2013

SPOTLIGHT ON: Tuesday, November 19 Public Hearing Regional Context Statement and Growing Medical Marihuana

INFORMED

On November 19, 2013 Council will hold a Public Hearing at 7:00 pm. The agenda for this meeting contains two property matters relating to a rezoning and Official Community Plan Amendment for a property located at 23920 - 112 Avenue. In addition, there are two items that may be of broader community interest that we want to highlight.

Monday, November 18 9:00 am, Workshop - Blaney Room 1:00 pm, Committee of the Whole - Council Chambers

The first item is the District’s Regional Context Statement that is part of the ongoing work on the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy. This item came before Council on October 7, 2013 at the Committee of the Whole meeting and then again on October 8, 2013 at the regular Council Meeting where it was moved to Public Hearing. The next item on the November 19, 2013 Public Hearing that may be of broad public interest is the Zoning Bylaw 7011-2013 to amend the Zoning Bylaw to establish zoning regulations for the commercial production of medical marihuana under the Canadian Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations. This item came before Council on July 22, 2013 at the Committee of the Whole meeting (Item 1106) and then again on July 23, 2013 at the regular Council meeting. Council gave second reading to the Bylaw and directed staff to send it to the

Tuesday, November 19 7:00 pm, Public Hearing - Council Chambers Tuesday, November 26 7:00 pm, Council Meeting - Council Chambers Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) for comments, and when those comments were received, to forward the Bylaw to Public Hearing. Those comments have been received and the item is now part of the November 19, 2013 Public Hearing Agenda. There are links to the Regional Growth Statement Bylaw and the Medical Marihuana Bylaw on the District website at mapleridge.ca.

INFORMED: New Target Canada Store is Just the Beginning. Next: Albion Shopping.

On Wednesday, Target Canada opened their new 110,000 square foot store in Maple Ridge. The line-up at 8:00 am is evidence of the strong demand for greater shopping alternatives in Maple Ridge. This demand has been the motivation for Council’s work to bring destination shopping development to the Albion Flats. Much of the land in the Albion Flats is part of the Agricultural Land Reserve. The use and development of this land is strictly controlled by the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC). In order to accelerate economic development in Albion, the District took advantage of an unprecedented opportunity for the ALC to provide broad comments on a comprehensive plan that was developed in 2011. In December 2011, the ALC provided its comments which indicated that it would entertain an exclusion application for the lands south of 105 Avenue subject to certain conditions, and that lands to the north should retain their agricultural designation.

November 2013 Council Meeting Schedule Mayor and Council encourage everyone to attend these important public meetings. It’s your chance to see how public policy is debated and enacted.

In the early part of 2012, Ridge Smart Centres, owners of a number of properties in the area, approached the District about a possible land exchange that would advance the development of destination shopping centre for the community. Smart Centres is a commercial property developer that has shopping centres throughout Canada. Council passed a resolution authorizing District staff to enter into discussions on a possible land exchange. In early 2013, two property owners north of 105 Avenue made exclusion applications to the ALC to remove their lands from the ALR. Recently, the ALC ruled on those applications and affirmed their 2011 position. With those decisions, the path to creating the destination shopping and economic lands in the Albion area has become clearer. In the coming weeks and months the details of the District’s exclusion application will be brought forward by Council and the public processes will begin. The ALC opinion was provided on the day that this Council was sworn in. Since that time we’ve been working towards making destination shopping a reality in Albion.

t didn’t take long for shoppingstarved Maple Ridge residents to find the new place in town. By noon Wednesday, the parking lot was full in Haney Place Mall and people were streaming into the new Target store. “I like it because I think it’s good for families,” Susan Bingham said after leaving the store. Target has better quality kids’ clothes and more variety, while the food section adds to shopping convenience. The store “doesn’t even compare,” to the old Zeller’s. “It kind of reminds me of the days of Woodward’s. They have people to help you find things.” Sharon Moody also liked what she saw. “It’s wonderful. Great store,” she said. “Things are easier to find. It’s well organized.” For Donna Zimmerman, the Maple Ridge location is better than the Coquitlam store, which

This certainly seems to be well stocked. “Without this here, we don’t have any shopping in Maple Ridge.” Janet Krvavac, though, wasn’t impressed with the quality of the clothes, saying they were tacky.

“Even in Bellis Fair [in Bellingham, Wash.] I looked and I was disappointed.” But she liked the food section and said the store was well designed. Still, more shopping options are needed, she said. “We’ve needed a shopping mall.

We need it here now, but we’ve got this council that doesn’t seem to want to do it. I think we need to get rid of these old fuddy-duddies that don’t have a vision for the future.” Krvavac was familiar with the issues of a shopping mall in the Albion flats, which could siphon off business from the downtown, but said there should be a larger shopping centre in the downtown. “It would create jobs. We’re getting sick of all these tolls.” A consultant’s report to council recently noted Maple Ridge has a shortage of electronics retailers, as well as men’s and women’s clothing stores. Inside the Target store, there’s no resemblance to the former Zellers – red walls and shiny floors, a new escalator and cashier stations, and modern displays, and in one corner, a Starbucks coffee shop. Target spent about $11 million on the expansion and renovation of the Zellers, bringing the building to a total of about 111,000 sq. feet. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin liked the renovation job that was done on the 35-year-old building that anchored the west end of Haney Place Mall.

With Thrifty Foods at the east end, “We have strong anchors at both ends of the mall now.” Daykin said he’s hoping Target will give all of the mall a lift. Part of that is already happening, with new floors and ceilings being installed throughout the mall. He sees the three-tower residential complex planned for Brown Avenue and Edge Street, that’s just been sent to public hearing, as the next step for the downtown. That project will be built in three phases over about seven or eight years. “That’s going to change the face of the community.” While Maple Ridge’s downtown incentive plan has sparked several new residential projects, the program expires this year. That will be replaced by a new incentive plan, using grants and tax exemptions and fast tracking, that is aimed at encouraging commercial and industrial growth. Daykin said that the new Chances Maple Ridge gaming centre on 227th Street is also bringing people into the downtown as the new road connects people in the suburbs below.

ing the new parks and recreation master plan. Finance general manager Paul Gill told council that, when preparing the budget, the focus was on major cost drivers that determine the municipality’s spending. One of those remains the money paid yearly to the RCMP. That’s climbing by almost a million dollars, a seven-per-cent increase. However, the 3.25-per-cent increase for municipal spending marks a downward trend in the rate of increases, Mayor Ernie Daykin said later. When sewer, water and recycling increases are added on, the final jump will be 3.75 per cent for the average home. “We’re managing to provide the services that people expect and want and we’re trying to do that without significant increases.” Reducing the cuts further would mean cuts in services. However, when council looks at the plan in December, one of the options will be trimming

by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter

Maple Ridge residents should be in for a lower, but steady stream of tax increases for the next five years. Tuesday, staff presented a projected property tax increase of 3.25 per cent each year, from now until 2018. Those increases will add up over the five-year-period, but are better than the 3.65 per cent target set by council this past spring. The projected increase, which still must be confirmed in budget discussions next month, is also a quarter of a per cent lower than last year’s hike. The 2014 increase includes a 2.2-per-cent hike for general purposes, a 0.5 per cent jump for roads and sewers, 0.3 per cent for drainage and a quarter of a percent increase for implement-

RCMP costs. “There are going to be some choices in the budget. It’s the level of service, or not.” Gill presented a chart that showed several years of higher tax increases in the past decade, when increases for general purposes and infrastructure were routinely four per cent. In 2007, residents were slapped with a total municipal tax hike of more than six per cent. Last year’s total municipal increase was 3.9 per cent, with water, sewer and recycling charges included, about another $100 for the average Maple Ridge home. That number should be similar to this year’s. Coun. Corisa Bell said one of the most common comments she hears from the public is about the salaries paid to municipal employees. It’s not that people think there are too many staff. Instead, there are, “comments like our CAO makes more than the prime minister of Canada, those types of comments. See Taxes, p5

“How can we explain this to the public?� she asked. “Because that’s a huge concern and I hear about that all the time and it would be nice to address it head on.� Gill told Bell that he couldn’t agree more. But he said there are limited numbers of senior staff and they have to be accessible all the time. “So I think that’s a conversation that council needs to have, but it has to be an in-camera session.� According to statements from last year, Maple Ridge spent $1.5 million more on salaries in 2011 compared to the year before, a 5.5-percent increase. Maple Ridge’s chief administrative officer Jim Rule, in 2011, earned $246,488. According to the Parliament of Canada website, Prime Minister Ste-

phen Harper will make $320,400 this year. Gill said when firefighter and police hires are subtracted, over the last four years, between 2009 and 2013, Maple Ridge hired only an additional 21 employees, working out to an increase of 1.25 per cent in staffing per year. Coun. Cheryl Ashlie though was looking for some benchmarks and standards of service to help guide the district in its financial plans. What levels of service can Maple Ridge meet with a general municipal increase of 3.25 per cent? “What does that really mean for our standards of service?� Can the district still deliver parks and recreation services as its population grows? “How do we make those decisions? “Can we sustain a whole social planning advisory section,� and meet a level of service?

The numbers presented were preliminary and will be presented in final form to council in early December. Gill said if council wants rein in spending, it has to look at the areas where the major increases are occurring, such as the RCMP, the fire department and infrastructure. Unlike some cities, such as Vancouver, Richmond,

The News/opinion News Views

ALC is not perfect A recent story in the Globe and Mail, based on leaked documents, caused quite a stir among those who consider preservation of farmland to be a top priority. The report suggested that in a “core review,” the B.C. government was looking at dismantling the Agricultural Land Commission, which oversees the Agricultural Land Reserve. Also apparently raised in the document was the concept of dividing the ALR into two zones – one for southwestern B.C., and the other for the Interior and north. The minister in charge of the government’s review was quick to deny any intention of dissembling the ALC, or to have it overruled by the Oil and Gas Commission. That scenario was raised by some in light of issues between the two land use agencies in regard to oil and gas exploration and extraction in the northern reaches of the province. Bennett maintained the Globe story is based on an old document, and that agricultural land commissioners will continue to decide on applications to amend the land reserve, established 40 years ago to protect farmland from development. We find it hard to believe this government – or any other for that matter – would be so foolhardy as to attempt to dramatically tamper with something so important to the public, and the province. To do so would be political suicide. Is the ALR perfect? No. Could some re-evaluation be made on some unfarmable lands in the Interior and north? Yes. In that context, we’ll be interested to learn what the core review finds and recommends. However, the government now is on the record that it stands firm behind the Agricultural Land Reserve and the commission that oversees it. That will not be forgotten. – Black Press Tell us what you think @ www.mapleridgenews.com

The loss of more than just innocence A

loss of innocence is the price we have paid for our growth into a sophisticated urban centre, but we still have lots of small town charm. You just have to look hard to find it. I can remember swimming at DaSidewinder vidson’s Pool in the Alouette River in the Sandy Macdougall 1950s and 1960s. We also used the rope swing located almost directly across the river from the concrete diving platform at Davidson’s Pool. The rope was attached to a branch of a large tree on the north bank of the river. The diving platform and rope swing are both long gone, but, in their place, we have a modern award-winning Leisure Centre downtown. It’s a great facility, but somehow lacks the adventurous nature and soul-building qualities of the outdoors. Sadly, liability issues and nature combined to remove the attractions that helped Davidson’s Pool remain a top outdoor draw in Maple Ridge for many years. I can also remember riding our local bus system, owned by the Trerise family. The Maple Ridge Bus Company fare during the 1950s and 1960s was 15 cents and there were sensible bus schedules to all the neighbourhoods in Maple Ridge, including Whonnock, Ruskin and Web-

ster’s Corners. Gerry Trerise, a former Maple Ridge mayor, sought a $25,000 annual subsidy to continue the valuable service, but that request was turned down by the municipal council of the day. Now we have an inefficient transit system operated by TransLink, which is hugely subsidized and has a confusing multi-zone fare system and offers almost no service to Whonnock, Webster’s Corners or Ruskin. I can also recall dipping oolichans from slippery perches on the log booms above the Hammond Cedar Mill on the Fraser River. The mill is still there but the oolichans, those small silvery fish, have all but disappeared . We are left with a struggling commercial fishery, which once thrived all along the Fraser. Most of the fish that are now caught are processed elsewhere and in other countries before returning to our local markets. In the past decade, we have witnessed the demolition of the Albion Hall and the loss of other community facilities, such as Sampo Hall. Those facilities provided a heart and soul for the communities they served. Those losses cannot be recaptured, but we do have emerging facilities, such as the new casino, which will provide a different type of ‘community heart.’ As part of the price tag accompanying rapid growth in most areas of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, we have attracted too many of the negative aspects

of urban living. We now bear tragic witness to frequent serious and violent crimes that were virtually unknown only a few decades ago. We also have thriving street level prostitution, illicit drug activities and dozens of homeless people that are spreading out from the downtown area to surrounding residential and apartment districts. Of course, we have a social planning function at municipal hall, but that has done little, if anything, to help solve any of the problems, which are a festering sore on our social fabric.

We still have areas that retain many of the small-town charms that once made Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows great places to live. As I stated at the outset, we still have areas that retain many of the small-town charms that once made Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows great places to live and great places to raise young families. The growing problem is that, nowadays, you just have to look real hard to find them. Sandy Macdougall is a retired journalist and former district councillor.

Had she been there, she would have heard all of us agreeing that we need to look at every department for cost-saving measures, including council. I totally agree that there are savings to be found and have shared that with council on many occasions, including the cancellation of some conferences. I don’t recall anyone discussing staff recognition. We talked about volunteer recognition, which is different. Our volunteers are a great resource ( volunteer firefighters, Citizens on Patrol, Community Police and everyone who does special events throughout the year); they provide endless opportunities and safety for our citizens. This council is committed to provide quality services for our citizens in the most cost-effective way possible. While I appreciate everyone’s individual views, I respectfully ask that your comments be based on facts and not hearsay. Respectfully, Deb Walters

Prohibition is the reason

Nes Poynton · Pitt Meadows: Re: Ridge councillor not pro pot (mapleridgenews.com). Wow, if I was Coun. Michael Morden, I would be embarrassed at the lack of knowledge he has on this topic. Neighbourhoods are unsafe because of prohibition. Regulation and control of all drugs will render our neighbourhoods safer. The legal drug alcohol causes way more problems than cannabis ever can ... • Michelle Roden: Re: Ridge councillor not pro pot (mapleridgenews.com). Coun. Morden, your message clearly shows your lack of current education or information on the subject. I have not seen any signs of this apparent harm to the community you are basing your reasoning on. But the basic message I do get from your comment is: ‘adults in my community are not capable of making their own decisions about what to put in their bodies and I do not support their right to make that decision. I believe the government must make that decision for them.’ While you are correct that alcohol legalization did not cure the resultant problems, I notice you didn’t even mention the fact that prohibition of alcohol caused far more harm and crime then legalization, which is why it was repealed. Alcohol and cigarettes cause a lot more harm to people than marijuana, but we have the right to make our own decisions about using these substances. We only want the same right in regards to marijuana. Since you cannot see this logic, you will never get my vote, nor those of any of my friends and family in this community.

Heritage to the curb Claus Andrup: Re: Maple Ridge council mum on derelict homes (mapleridgenews.com). In most communities, these homes would be considered part of the community heritage, and all efforts would be made to restore them as significant tributes to Haney’s past. That is not, however, the case in Maple Ridge, where the first reaction is always to neglect, allow fire to take over, then allow demolition, then put up a poorly designed and built condominium. It is, of course, too late now for comments such as this. The district’s course was set many years ago, and it sticks firmly to it. I’d prefer the owners speak up rather than have the manager do all the talking. Where these old homes go, so will others in the neighbourhood ... Coun. Hogarth has every reason and justification to continue with his plans, as resistance is so low and his role as a realtor-council has always been accepted as a way of life in Maple Ridge by voters and his fellow councillors and most mayors. In other words, ‘same old same’ old. Heritage is tossed to the curb yet again.

‘No intention to remove parking’ Editor, The News: Re: ‘Parking letter misses the point’ (The News, Nov. 6). Whoever wrote the letter to the health minister had no intention of being  successful as to remove the money source provided by pay parking at the hospital. If the writer had been listening to the public outcry, the letter would have simply requested that Fraser Health apply its fee policy equally within the region.  In an earlier report, your paper identified that the policy stated that the fee would be equal to the amount charged in surrounding parking lots. The only tolled parking lots in Maple Ridge are

the TransLink lot at Maple Meadows Way and at municipal hall. The latter has free parking for the first hour and a fee thereafter.  A fee similar to this would negate the fear of people using the hospital parking for a park and ride, something Maple Ridge is severely lacking, and satisfy the majority of concerns.  That request should be a no-brainer even for the bureaucrats  at Fraser Health, and one the minister should be able to support without changing the tolling policy everywhere in British Columbia.

Pay parking at the hospital should be equal to that charged in other pay lots in Maple Ridge.

Conservatives ‘do honour service of veterans’ Editor, The News: Re: Take care of all veterans (The News, Nov. 8). The federal government considers support for veterans a high priority. We are proud of the job they have done and we stand beside them every step of the way. In fact, the federal government has substantially increased benefits for veterans. In 2005, before the Conservatives formed government, the New Veterans Charter (NVC) was passed, with all-party support, and introduced a set of programs and services designed to help veterans transition into everyday life. The NVC includes rehabilitation services, health benefits, career transition services, financial benefits, including the monthly Earnings Loss Benefit and the Permanent Impairment Allowance, disability award, death and detention (prisoner of war) benefits, and support through case management and mental health services. After the implementation of the NVC, some veterans expressed concern that it was not meeting the needs of the individuals it serves.

The federal government responded by bringing forward Bill C-55, the Enhanced New Veterans Charter Act, which came into force in October 2011. The enhancements in the act include improving access to monthly benefits of up to $1,632 for approximately 3,500 seriously disabled veterans, providing an additional $1,000 per month to approximately 500 veterans who cannot be suitably or gainfully employed, offering flexible payment options for disability awards, and providing a minimum annual Kamp pre-tax income of $40,000 for CF veterans participating in VAC’s rehabilitation program. The NVC was implemented after considerable consultation with veterans’ groups, which favoured this approach rather than a pension system. In latter, veterans only receive a monthly cheque (at an average of $800/month) and some related health care. While the Conservative government has taken significant steps to provide for

our veterans, we realize that the NVC may still need further improvements, and we are committed to an immediate review to address the main issues facing veterans. On Nov. 7, the federal government announced new legislation intended to provide medically released veterans who were injured in service to Canada the top level of priority consideration for job openings in the public service. The changes are expected to come into force in spring 2014 and will apply to veterans who had a priority entitlement on or after April 1, 2012. Through initiatives such as Helmets to Hardhats and VAC’s Hire a Veteran program, the Conservative government continues to work with corporate Canada to help veterans find new opportunities to successfully make the transition from military to civilian life.

River Road no longer a place for a leisurely walk Editor, The News: I am writing with regards to my concerns for pedestrian foot traffic safety between Carshill and Darby streets on River Road. Before the up-grade to River Rd. a few years ago, a couple of people could walk side-by-side without fear of vehicle traffic or tripping over stones or blocks put on the boulevard by home owners. Is River Road for only autos now? Why

can’t the walkway be widened to allow more room, like the west side of Darby St.? River Road could be a great alternative to the very busy Lougheed Highway for leisurely walks. At present it is very restricted, which is too bad. My wife and I enjoy walks around our neighbourhood, but in this area of River Rd. we are forced to walk single file on the very narrow walkway, with vehicle traffic on one side

and dodging obstacles on the boulevard side. These obstacles, such as rocks, should be moved or removed completely. I would think that the district would love to have people leave their vehicles at home. I hope council will look into improving this situation some day soon, along with the planned traffic calming measures. Alan Meeks Maple Ridge

Chromium, as in flats, also essential micro nutrient Editor, The News: Re: ‘I wouldn’t eat food grown in Albion flats’ (Letters, Oct. 24). Chromium, as found in the Albion flats, while it can be toxic is also an essential micro nutrient. It is used by the body to manage sug-

ars and other nutrients. Some diabetics have been found to be deficient in chromium. Even in soils where chromium is present, it is slow to be picked up by plants.  Some forms or chromium, such as

that found in eggs, is very slow to be picked up and used by the body, as well. Other information about chromium can be found in books explaining vitamins and minerals required for health.  Romah Balabanov Maple Ridge

Hogarth wants helmet law enforced Councillor concerned about driver safety by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter

Maple Ridge council wants more information before it asks RCMP to clamp down on bicycle bandits who pedal their trade under the cover of darkness. A resolution Tuesday from Coun. Al Hogarth called on council to ask police to enforce the Motor Vehicle Act against bicyclists who zoom about in the dark without helmets or lights. “They’re prolific, no matter how much education you to do, some of these people will never learn. “Motorcyclists have to wear helmets, that is the law. Cyclists have to wear helmets, that is the law.” Hogarth said one reason he’s asking for a clampdown is to help motorists who could accidentally hit a cyclist dressed in black, at night. Hogarth said that’s almost happened several times to him.

Coun. Al Hogarth wants more cyclists to wear helmets, like Alex Pope. “To me, it’s about that innocent driver. I guess if there are some unintended consequences, so be it. “I see them late at night, wandering around with their cellphones. “I don’t know how they can afford a cellphone when they can’t afford a helmet or a light for their bike. Maybe they don’t want to be seen. That’s the whole reason, they wear the dark clothing and fleet away on bicycles because it’s a great escape.”

Asking RCMP to do such blanket enforcement could see families ticketed, said Coun. Cheryl Ashlie. And the RCMP are already enforcing the Motor Vehicle Act, said Coun. Judy Dueck. “We shouldn’t have to request that the RCMP enforce the MVA because that’s already their responsibility. “We shouldn’t be instructing them [RCMP] how to police. We have to entrust them to do their jobs.” Council, though, supported Coun. Corisa’s

THE NEWS/files

Bell idea of referring it to the social planning advisory committee, which includes RCMP representation. Police then would report back to council. Hogarth also wanted to tack on another motion, asking for a review of the bylaw that allows cyclists on Maple Ridge sidewalks. But that was voted down by council because it was not requested in advance. “We said this to the other councillor so we have to be consistent,” Dueck said.

Strip-a-thon takes stage for Christmas hamper 19th annual event is on Dec. 1 by Colleen Flan ag a n staff reporter

The Caddyshack is gearing up for the 19th annual Strip-a-thon to benefit the Maple RidgePitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society. The event is on Dec. 1, from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Caddyshack staff and performers will donate their time and tips, with all money going to the Christmas Hamper. And those who reserve seats and tables for the event will receive a free brunch – eggs, bacon, sausage and potatoes, from 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. “Everybody gets excited about this, because it’s the one day that we can focus on giving back to the community,” said Caddyshack Exotic Show Bar general manager Yvan Charette “It’s kind of a quirky tradition in Maple Ridge, but people come out in droves.

Entertainment will include 12 to 15 dancers. There will be a live auction and a silent auction with many prizes, including Canuck tickets, a Canucks patio chair, a NFL speaker tower worth $500, a cigar box, an inflatable kayak with beach chairs, beer fridges and mirror signs and more. Caddyshack servers will be auctioning off their bra’s again this year,

an annual tradition that brings in a lot of money for the fundraiser. Three years ago a bra was auctioned off for $5,000. One lucky patron along with a friend will win a waitress date – a complimentary lunch, including drinks, at the Haney Public House with all of the servers at the Caddyshack. The fundraiser supplies the Christmas Hamper Society, which will have 12 volunteers helping out during the event, with a third of its annual bud-

get. “It pays our food bill,” explained Lorraine Bates, co-chair of the Christmas Hamper Society, adding that last years food bill was $26,300. The hamper society helped 608 families in 2012, including 102 sponsored families. Meaning that food was provided by the Christmas Hamper Society for 506 families. “So those ladies are dancing to fill tummies,” said Bates. The society’s revenue

last year was $80,000, but it had to go over-budget by $8,000, using a slushfund. “Our slush-fund is there to allow us to know that it doesn’t matter how many people apply and qualify, that we’ll be able to look after them,” Bates said. The Christmas Hamper is a non-profit society and a member of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, providing toys, gifts and Christmas dinners to families who register and qualify for help. It is run entirely by volunteers. “I continue to be in awe of what the whole organization does, right from the manager. He just believes in it,” said Bates. “And when you have somebody in that capacity who believes in something, it always filters down into your staff. They all work so hard. Tickets for the Strip-athon are $10 per person. Seat reservations are $25 and table reservations go from $100 to $300. Tickets can be purchased at the Caddyshack. • For more information call 604-467-0662.

CHOOSING A CARPET CLEANING PROFESSIONAL Part 1: Insist on a Truck Mount In the coming articles we will guide you through the process of choosing a carpet cleaning professional. We’ll focus on the types of things you should look for in a carpet care company, and some of the questions you should ask of them. There are hundreds of carpet cleaning companies in our area, so it can be difficult to choose the one that will do the best possible job for you. We’ve learned by experience in over 30 years in the business that some methods, companies, and technicians are MUCH better than others. The first thing you need to find out is what method of cleaning a company utilizes. Are they using a truck-mounted system or a portable, or are they using an encapsulation method, a bonnet buff system, or another method? We can discuss each of these methods in subsequent articles as space permits, but the most important thing to know is that if a company is not using a high-pressure, high-heat, high-vacuum TRUCK MOUNT system, you will NOT be getting the most out of your carpet cleaning dollars. Sometimes a truck-mounted system isn’t practical (such as on the fifth floor or higher in apartment or office buildings), but if your carpets are accessible by a truck-mounted carpet cleaning unit, we recommend you INSIST on that method being used. There’s absolutely no other method that can compete with the cleaning, flushing, and vacuuming power of a truck mount. The high heat helps break down the soils and activates the cleaning agent, and the high pressure allows the flushing action to get right to the bottom of the carpet fibres. The high-suction vacuum is the only way to draw out deeply embedded soils. We started out with a bonnet-buff system almost 35 years ago and learned, unfortunately, that it simply is not a system meant for deep cleaning and extraction, but simply a “maintenance method” intended for use between cleanings by a truck-mounted system. It was an expensive lesson. Despite what you may be told by slick-talking sales people, systems other than truck-mounted cleaning units just don’t measure up and get the same results. Insist on a truck mount. You can find this, and other articles on our website: www.RidgeMeadowsCarpetCare.com

“We’ve got questions and concerns about everything,” Stott said. Questions still remain about companies’ ability to take water and sell it in the marketplace. Stott said there are some positives of the draft law, such as more equitable distribution of water rights, better management in times of scarcity, more resources for creeks and fish, and more resources for ground water management. The letter will be sent from Maple Ridge council, after input from the various task force members. “Because of the lack of detail and the lack of definitions and clarity, we just really feel strongly that another step be there before the legislation goes to the house,” Ashlie said. Without that, the proposed act could lose credibility. Ashlie said the group is asking the government to create a formal paper outlining its objectives. She said that the river groups need to see more detail before they can decide if they’d be affected. One of the provisions of the bill could be the requirement for water users to use real-time monitoring of consumption, so the public can track it. However, a task force

member pointed out that baseline information and more is needed to make such monitoring worthwhile. ARMS has been looking for that provision, she added. “I think they [water users] have to be kept honest, where the practices are actually benefiting everybody.” Ashlie said she’s been happy with the consultation process so far. “We’re going to be strong in our language that we’re concerned of this good body of work losing credibility, if you do not give people a chance to see it,” Ashlie said. “We’re going to say it in a nice way, but we want it said, this is something we feel strongly about. There needs to be another input session.” The environment ministry has been seeking input since 2009. The proposed legislation includes, for the first time in B.C.’s history, regulations for using ground water. B.C. currently is the only province that has no regulations for subsurface water. The proposal is to regulate in the same manner as surface water, requiring users to get a licence and pay annual fees. Most domestic water wells would be exempt.

‘Dust landing on everything’ Mill from front

Some residents were out of their houses for almost two hours. The fire was put out by a built-in suppression system inside the silo, but flared up again later in the day. “It became a nonevent,” said Exner. “The built-in systems were activated and any threat of a fire inside the dust collection silo was mitigated.” People who live near the cedar mill, however, remained concerned that the operation has been generating increasing amounts of saw dust lately, affecting air quality. “It’s landing on everything. It’s coating everything,” said Bert Pogany, whose home on Chigwell Street abuts the mill. “If you wash your car, four hours later, you can spell your name in the dust that’s on your vehicle.” Pogany alerted the District of Maple Ridge to the problem two months ago, but remains dissatisfied with the response he’s received from the bylaws department. He believes the district and fire department are

A Maple Ridge fire truck leaves the mill after a flare-up. downplaying the seriousness of the incident as broadcast media initially reported evacuations didn’t occur. A decade ago, Pogany, his family and neighbours were instrumental in getting the district, Metro Vancouver and Hammond Cedar to agree to an air action plan, which outlined what type of air quality testing is required and when it’s needed. That plan has been forgotten, says Pogany, who has lived in his home for more than 30 years, since before the mill expanded.

“Two months ago, I was told all issues have been dealt and I should have no concerns. Guess what – that wasn’t the case this morning.” Pogany, his wife and daughter, who lives next door, were rushed out of their homes by RCMP. They grabbed their most important possessions and made their way to an in-law’s house nearby. Pogany stresses he does not want the mill closed, he just wants it to abide by the plan. “They need to take us seriously without dismissing our concerns,” he added.

The Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy was adopted by the Metro Vancouver Regional Board on July 29, 2011. Each member municipality had until July 29, 2013 to submit their revised regional context statements for acceptance by the Metro Board. The Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy contains five (5) key goals that identify what the role of each member municipality has in helping to achieve the Regional goals. Policy 6.2.6 of the RGS identifies that each municipalities Regional Context Statement is expected to be generally consistent with the RGS goals, strategies and actions and the regional land use designations. The Maple Ridge Regional Context Statement was formally referred to the Board of the Metro Vancouver Regional District on July 25, 2013, following First Reading of Official Community Plan Amending Bylaw No. 7002-2013. On September 27, 2013, the Metro Vancouver Regional Board formally accepted the Regional Context Statement and Council subsequently gave Second Reading to the Bylaw on October 8, 2013 and forwarded the bylaw to the November 19 Public Hearing agenda. 3) 2013-074-RZ MAPLE RIDGE ZONE AMENDING BYLAW NO. 7011-2013 PURPOSE: To amend the Zoning Bylaw to establish zoning regulations for the commercial production of medical marihuana under the Canadian Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations.

Local families rally support for Typhoon Haiyan victims Fundraiser in Maple Ridge Dec. 7 by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter

F

ilipino-Canadians and their supporters in Metro Vancouver are rallying to raise money for victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated a large swat of the central Philippines last week. Typhoon Haiyan destroyed about 70 to 80 per cent of the area in its path as it tore through the city of Tacloban with wind gusts reaching 275 km/h. The resulting storm surge whipped up six metre high waves, which flooded low-lying areas

Fortunately, no one in her immediate family was affected by the typhoon. According to the United Nations, more than 900,000 people have been displaced by the storm, perhaps the most powerful ever to strike land, and nearly 12 million people have been affected in some way. As of Thursday, the official death toll stood at 4,460. Diy, her mother Jackie and sister Deanne are now planning a concert in Maple Ridge to raise more money for those affected by the storm. What I saw on YouTube was really sad, said Diy, who is a student at Thomas Haney secondary. “I hope things go back to normal really soon.” The destruction caused by the typhoon has allowed Diy to put her life into perspective. “It’s a reminder that we

should all be thankful because we’re so blessed to live in such a nice country that hardly has these things happen,” she says. “What’s really nice is that no matter what your race is, no matter who you are, everyone is united to help people across the globe.” The federal government has pledged $5 million in aid in the wake of the disaster and will also contribute matching amounts to its Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund for every dollar Canadians give to registered charities up to Dec. 9. Canada has also deployed members of its Disaster Assistance Response Team to the Philippines. Randy Kamp, the member of parliament for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows-Mission, and his wife extended his sincerest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones as a result of Typhoon Haiyan. “Having spent seven years living in the Philippines, Ruth and I have a very personal connection to the people there and our thoughts and prayers are with those

affected by this disaster,” said Kamp, who also has a condolence book at his office in Maple Ridge for people to sign. “I encourage all Canadians to offer their support during this tragic time.” To directly contribute to the Canadian Red Cross for Philippines relief, visit redcross.ca or call 1-800-418-111You can donate $5 to the Canadian Red Cross by texting REDCROSS or ROUGE to  shortcode 30333.

Maple Ridge powerlines going underground

Seniors, are you considering Your Next Move? Advice for Seniors thinking of selling and downsizing their home.

by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Maple Ridge can try to bury the remaining five per cent of the power lines in new areas, but it will cost a pretty penny to do so. Manager of infrastructure development Stephen Judd told council on Nov. 4 that 95 per cent of the new suburbs in Silver Valley, Cottonwood and Albion will have underground wiring. The exceptions are the major power networks that distribute the power and which follow roads such as 232nd Street or Fern Crescent. However, to bury even small sections of those lines, costs thousands of dollars. For example, to bury a 140-metre stretch of cable in Silver Valley would cost $560,000. A recent project in Fort Langley that required burying of half a kilometre of powerline cost $3 million. In Albion, there’s a 40-metre stretch of overhead wire that would cost $160,000. In the older areas of Maple Ridge, such as west of downtown,

THE NEWS/files

In Silver Valley, 95 per cent of the subdivisions have underground wiring. some areas have buried wires and some don’t. But new developments must have a buried connection to the main power line. That eliminates the power lines that connect homes and condos to overhead powerlines. In the downtown, back alleys provide most connections to powerlines, while there are no aerial connections to new properties. Coun. Michael Morden said B.C. Hydro gets the benefit of the developer burying the lines, through lower maintenance costs. The power company should help pay if the district buries more lines, he added. Coun. Al Hogarth,

though, wanted to know if there’s a way of expanding underground wiring in the downtown area, and to the west, as new projects get built, pointing out fire crews can’t fight a fire if power to nearby wires isn’t cut. Electrical shorts from overhead wiring can cause fires during an earthquake, he added. Coun. Cheryl Ashlie didn’t want to drive up costs and said she was OK with the current policy for underground wiring, which says new subdivisions have underground wiring, while infill developments in older areas must have underground connections to the overhead power lines.

Kathleen will present ideas on de-cluttering, staging, downsizing, as well as offering suggestions on decorating and updating.

and white. You’re not allowed. “The zoning bylaw prohibits them,” said bylaws director Liz Holitzki. “There is a bylaw.” The issue has confused a few residents who have them in the lots and use them for storage, such as Kathie Haidon. She and her husband Gord have had an old Seaspan container in her back yard for two years and fought a previous ticket to have the container removed. That ticket was cancelled because the bylaw officer left the employ of the District of Maple Ridge. In the meantime, the Haidons received another letter, this time telling them the container violates the building code and they have until Nov. 24 to remove it. “If we don’t remove it, they’re going to give us a $500 fine. We’ll wait for the fine and take it to court,” Kathie Haidon said. She added that her lawyer says the bylaw is unclear and doesn’t include containers. The Haidons live on 228th Street, just north of Dewdney Trunk Road, and needs the container for storage. If they get the approval to build a ‘granny’

Holitzki said the bylaws department tries to work with residents to find a way to help them comply with the bylaw. That includes issuing warning letters and giving people time to find alternatives, such as building a shed. But if they dig in their heels, they can also issue fines, one-time penalties or even daily fines of $300. Some construction and roofing contractors will consult with bylaws before bringing sheds on to properties for debris removal, Holitzki pointed out. That’s still illegal, however, even if

it’s just for a few days, she added. Long-time Maple Ridge resident Peter Lueks has had a container in his yard for 14 years, using it to store antique engines. He likes the old shipping containers because they’re secure and dry. “As long as you don’t open them up when it’s raining, the moisture stays out of it.” Many properties have them, he says. But Lueks also has to remove his container, once his work shed receives all the required permits. He also maintains that containers are not prohibited in the district’s bylaws. “Why do I see containers all over the place?”

The property is slated for redevelopment into an apartment building, along with the renovation and conversion of the historic house on the corner into a duplex. Ashlie wanted the other two homes to be torn down at the start of the development

process rather than the end, so the old buildings don’t attract crime. The third house, which is set for the heritage renovation, has been raided by police with people arrested and drugs seized. Ashlie said staff told council Tuesday that the landlord is seeking demolition on the middle lot. “They [the owners] heard our concerns and they responded. “I want that downtown cleaned up and I want people seeing all that stuff cleaned up.”

I could argue that with an aging population, we’re just getting grumpier, and to some extent, I’d be right.  With age comes the time to reflect and the wisdom of common sense that looks at the foolishness that sometimes goes on in the public sector and says, ‘That’s enough.’ We know that there is an important role for public service, but let’s face it, they have their hand in our pocket to pay for it and the harder we work, the more they squeeze out of us.  When we were young, busy and capable of adding more income with more work, we accepted some level of that and, frankly, didn’t have the time to go too deeply into it.  We accepted that there was likely some waste in the government and we wagged our fingers occasionally at politicians and civil servants, but then we went back to hustling off to work and raising our kids while trying to put away some money for our retirement.

Prayer not just time for sharing

I

f someone asked me what the most crucial part of my Christian life is, I would say prayer. It is through spending time with God that I am changed, strengthened, and guided each day. Acts of Faith During times Patricia Bryan in His presence, I am reminded of His unfailing goodness and love. I cannot help but be humbled by His holiness, cleansed by His forgiveness, and empowered by His Spirit. Prayer is not just a time of sharing our needs with God, although that is an important part. But it is also a time of thanking and praising Him for all He has and will do. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God., (Philippians 4, Verse 6 ). Prayer is for giving and receiving; a sacred time of communicating with God through praising, talking, and listening. We can learn more about prayer from God’s conversation with Jeremiah in Jeremiah 33, Verse 3, where he said: “Call to me and I will answer you

and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Here again the Lord is saying to call to Him. He wants to hear from us. In my last article, I ended with the verse, “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth,” Psalm 145, Verse 18. It is important and exciting to know that when we call to the Lord in prayer, He is indeed near to us. In fact, He wants us to come to Him with our requests: “You do not have, because you do not ask God,”(James 4, Verse 2). Next, He promises, “I will answer you.” It is true that God’s answer may not be the one we are wanting at the time, but He will respond with the answer that is best for us (Romans 8:28). Lastly, the Lord tells Jeremiah that He will tell him “great and unsearchable things you do not know.” This is when we begin to gain His wisdom and peace that surpasses understanding (Philippians 4, Verse 7) for whatever may come our way. Is there something in your life right now for which you have not gone to the Lord in prayer? Don’t go to the phone or friend first – go to God with your every need, large or small. You can trust His Word that He will hear and answer you. Patricia Bryan is the pastor of His Path Christian Centre and the Academy of Prayer.

Only cars are not allowed on new path along Lougheed I t continues to amaze me how some vocal bike lane opponents continue to be adamant that people on bikes do not deserve a safe place to ride.

The most common reason is that “they don’t pay for the roads.” Don’t they? Actually, most cycling is done on municipal roads, which are mostly paid for

through property taxes. Whether you bike or drive, you pay property taxes if you own a home, and if you rent, your share of the property taxes are included in

that. Recently there have been some articles and letters in our local papers about the “astronomical cost of the bike lanes” along Lougheed Highway between 216th and Laity streets. Our councillors, as well as district engineers often refer to the path as a bike lane or a cycle track (both for the exclusive use of cyclists), neither of which adequately describe the purpose of this path. The correct term would be “multi-use path”. Everyone is able to use it, not only people on bikes or trikes, but also pedestrians, with or without dogs, roller blades, non-motorized scooters and so on. Only cars are not allowed. Slowly but surely the connectivity of our cycling network improves, and this particular path provides an important connection in the second east-west route for people on bikes. We now no longer need to ride on the narrow River Road – angering some drivers and running the risk

of getting clipped – to get around the hospital. Future signage will help people find their way along this route. Something that many people don’t seem to understand is that the multi-use path is only one part of a much bigger project. The new storm sewer pipes along the length of the path, a culvert and a retaining wall, as well as improvements to the intersection at Laity St. are all considerable cost components. A number of big concrete driveways were added, as well, which can hardly be called “bike path.”

Sometimes cycling improvements piggyback onto other road construction. And sometimes it’s the other way round These are not merely meant to carry the weight of a bike and its rider, but they’re pretty heavy duty since they

The CTS model is a lighter car, made of high tensile steel. It is stiffer, safer, handles better, and above all, is more efficient.

ZACK SPENCER

Question

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

Being a better driver is worth it

By Alexandra Straub

B

.C. race car driver Cherie Storms told me she was taking an advanced driver training course to appease her father’s wishes. She’d been putting it off since teenagedom. That said, her father is an accomplished race car driver and a proficient motorist, so you could argue it was an inevitability. But she had to find the desire in herself first. What followed, even she didn’t think would happen. She recently took home the championship title for the B Spec series in her Mazda2 for the 2013 race season. She grew up in a motorsports household, but it wasn’t until she actually got behind the

wheel at the driving course that her mindset changed. “I was just overwhelmed with all of the technical aspects that it takes to be a good driver,” she stated. “It’s like what my Grade 12 math teacher always said, ‘Math is not a spectator sport.’” There was even a poster on the cubicle wall to remind us. The same thing goes for driving. We need to be an active participant, not a wallflower. Anyone who has taken advanced driving courses will know exactly what Cherie is talking about. It’s not just about knowing how to shift gears on a manual transmission without jerking the car, or parallel parking your sedan without curbing the rims. Driving is so much more. I understand that this mode of transportation is a necessity for many. And it’s something done out of convenience rather than love, kind of like laundry or grouting the bathroom floor tiles. Then again, for others, it’s a passion. Myself included.

Taking a specialized course, whether it’s a track day or a race school isn’t just for wannabe racers. It’s for everyone. And we can all learn if we have an open mind. We read to keep our mind sharp. We walk/run/work out to keep our bodies active. We sleep to keep our bodies functioning. Why should driving be any different? Why shouldn’t we actively engage in making ourselves better drivers? Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others. We might not think too much about it, but operating a vehicle is a huge responsibility. Poor driving habits, not shoulder checking, not using your signals, driving in the left lane when you’re not passing, are minor details in the grand scheme of things, but have a large impact. It’s never too late to refresh the basics, then pick up a few new good habits. For example, if you look at any of the top athletes in their sport, they’re training most of the

A driver training program is not only fun, but makes our roads safer. as an “off-season.” She says she trains all year long. In fact, she trains harder when she’s not always behind the wheel of a car to prepare for the upcoming races. If the pros do it, we should to. Some of the most fun I’ve had behind the wheel of a car has been at a driving school. Whether it was the three-day racing school at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the Skip Barber program, or a track day at the Mission Raceway with

time. They’re trying to perfect their craft, even when they’re at the top of it. I doubt Sebastian Vettel slums around in his down time, even after winning his fourth consecutive Formula1 world championship. Sure, he gets a break, but he’s constantly training to be faster and stronger. In another interview, I chatted with Izod Indy race car driver Simona de Silvestro. She tells me that there’s really no such thing

Morrisport Advanced Driving, or even a track program close to you, it’s a win-win. If we’re all safer drivers, then the chances of accidents are minimized and we can keep our vehicles dent-free longer, and avoid going through insurance claims. The few hundred dollars it takes to enroll is of infinite worth in the long run. Alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca Twitter.com/cargirlsgarage

A car to savour on a long road trip, this E-Class came with a new “Intelligent” body structure that’s 30 per cent more rigid than its predecessor, incredibly comfortable seating and a newly developed suspension with shock absorbers

that automatically adjust to a driving situation. An optional air suspension was also available with an electronic damping system. The E350 (coupe or sedan) is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 with 268-hp and 258-lb-ft of torque. The E550 (coupe or sedan) has a 5.5-litre V8 that can generate 382 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. The sedan also comes in a high-performance AMG 63 edition with a 6.2-litre V8 that makes 518 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. All three engines are mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission and drive goes to the rear wheels of the coupe and to all four wheels of the sedan. The rear-drive 3.5L V6 gets best fuel economy at 11.9 L/100/km in the city and 7.6 L/100/km on the highway. The 6.2L V8 is the gas guzzler, with a city/highway rating of 16.5/10.2 L/100/ km. All three engines also prefer premium fuel. A standard Dynamic Handling package also allows the driver choose a sporty-set-up at the touch of a button. This changes the continuously variable damping, the speed-sensitive power steering (with variable centering), ESP/ASR (traction control), accelerator response, and speed of automatic gear changes. New active safety innovations: Attention Assist, which is a driver drowsiness monitor;, Pre-Safe, which is preventative occupant protection system; Adaptive High Beam Assist, which automatically dims headlight high beams; and an automatic emergency braking system called Distronic Plus. Attention Assist is a warning system that can sense a drop in driver attention level. It continuously monitors more than 70 different driver performance parameters, such as erratic steering behaviour, and will signal when it’s time for the driver to take a break. Four new E-Class models were added for the 2011 model year: an E350 4MATIC station wagon, E350 BlueTEC diesel sedan, and two convertibles, the E350 cabriolet and E550 cabriolet. At highway cruising speeds you can barely hear the E350 BlueTEC diesel engine, throttle response is fast (for a diesel) and pulling power (398 lb ft of torque from 1600 to 2400 rpm) is phenomenal. Engine upgrades followed in 2012. The E350 4MATIC got a direct-injection 3.5-litre V6.

Truck tires: tread lightly in snow By Ian Harwood

T

he temperature is starting to drop, the leaves are clogging up the streets and snow is beginning to fall in parts in parts of B.C. Driving in the winter season brings challenges no matter which part of the province you call home. My remarks are aimed chiefly at truck owners, but the message is common for all: drivers and vehicles must be equally prepared. In winter, braking and stopping vehicles of all kinds is perhaps where most of us get into trouble. The tires play a critical role in stopping the vehicle, and so they need even more care and attention than in the other seasons. Most SUVs have a passenger car tire classification, with M+S stamped on the sidewall, for mud and snow, and are considered all-season tires. If it is not, your vehicle must be fitted with tires suitable for any type of climate, even the most severe ones. In winter, the pressure of the tire must also be controlled more frequently. This is because a reduction of the outside temperature causes a contraction of the air inside the tire, accelerating the normal and gradual pressure loss process by a value around 1-2 PSI for each 5 C decrease in temperature. Contrary to popular opinion, a lower inflation pressure than normal does not improve tire traction on snow. It makes them much more prone to damage. Always remember that in any season and with any temperature, insufficient pressure is always the main cause of tire damage. Use brakes carefully. Brake early. Brake correctly. It takes more time and distance to stop in

icy conditions. Watch for slippery bridge decks, even when the rest of the pavement is in good condition. Bridge decks will ice up sooner than the pavement. Do not use the cruise control in winter conditions. Even roads that appear clear can have sudden slippery spots and the short touch of your brakes to deactivate the cruise control feature can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

Remember that your fourwheel drive vehicle may help you get going quicker than other vehicles but it won’t help you stop any faster.

’’

– Ian Harwood

Don’t get overconfident in your 4x4 vehicle. Remember that your four-wheel drive vehicle may help you get going quicker than other vehicles, but it won’t help you stop any faster. Besides, many 4x4 vehicles are heavier than passenger vehicles and actually may take longer to stop. And don’t bank on your 4x4’s traction. Your 4x4 can lose traction as quickly as a twowheel drive vehicle. If your vehicle is equipped with anti-lock brakes, do not pump them in attempting to stop. The right way is to steer into the skid while applying the brake pedal evenly. Look farther ahead in traffic than you normally do. Actions by cars and trucks will alert you quicker to problems and give you a split second extra time to react safely. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

The E550 4MATIC got a 4.6-litre bi-turbo V8 and the E63 AMG got a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8. All models also receive a revised transmission, electric power steering and LED license plates. Even though owner costs tend to be higher than average, the E-Class made Consumer Reports’ ‘Recommended list of cars to buy and the E350 BlueTEC was singled out for special praise. If style, comfort and safety top your auto ‘wish list,’ and you’ve got the money, consider the remarkable Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drives-U-Crazy Solid line lunacy It seems to me that few people know when it is permissible to turn left across a solid centre line. If you can make the turn without hindering people behind you, that is fine. But if you can’t – drive on, because it’s the law. I live near a hospital and see people break this rule daily, allowing cars to stack up behind while they wait for a clearance in traffic to complete their turn.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

Three finalists chosen for RenoMe! With FortisBC contest By Kerry Vital

Three British Columbia residents are getting the chance to win $10,000 towards a room makeover with natural gas after being chosen as a finalist in the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. Over 150 entries were received from all over the province, but the final three were narrowed down to Gayle Curtis of Maple Ridge for her kitchen, Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo for her outdoor space and Wendy Frose of Chilliwack for her great room. Designer Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. (SGDI) has taken on the outdoor space project, while SGDI’s Stephanie Malhas will design the great room, and Susanne Doise of Sensitive Design will handle the kitchen. In the next phase of the contest, the three finalists will receive renderings of their space from their designer, and then readers will vote on which one deserves the makeover the most. The room with the most votes will win $10,000 towards their renovation, while the second and third-place finalists will receive $2,000 each. Doise has consulted with Curtis, and has provided a rendering of how she thinks the kitchen could look once it’s renovated. “The kitchen is in bad shape,” says Doise. “I want to give her a better flow between the work spaces and the rest of the room.” Curtis calls her kitchen disgusting, gross and old, and says she’s tired of burning everything she cooks due to a bad stove, so Doise will be incorporating natural gas in the kitchen with a Viking dual-fuel gas range. “It’s a very simple way to use natural gas,” she says. Gas cooktops have long been popular with professional

chefs for their even cooking, precise temperature control and instant heat. Homeowners have increasingly been choosing them for their new and renovated kitchens alike. One of the concerns with the room is the lack of space. In order to combat this, Doise has suggested a movable butcher block island that can be pushed into the pantry wall to open up the space. She notes that currently, you can’t even open the refrigerator without bumping into the existing counter, and opening the dishwasher blocks you from doing anything else in the kitchen. “I want to bring in more light as well,” she says. “It will look more friendly and inviting.” She also plans to incorporate an area for the homeowners to work and study. “I want to make it multifunctional,” she says. Doise has considered the owner’s tastes as well, and would incorporate her likes and dislikes into the final design. “I want to make her happy,” she says. Malhas is similarly excited about her great room project. “People live in their space for so long that they get used to it and have trouble visualizing changing it,” she says. “I don’t have that emotional connection to it so I can see the potential in the room and suggest ways to fix it.” The current room is the main living area for Frose’s family, and it’s in dire need of an update. “Any time I can get into wood panelling is good,” laughs Malhas. “It will definitely be gone.” One of the biggest issues with the room is the current wood-burning fireplace, which isn’t centred in the room and makes for awkward

more energy-efficient and more convenient for homeowners. You no longer have to worry about power outages, since the fireplace doesn’t run on electricity, and there is no more waiting for your fireplace to heat up, since natural gas is available at the push of a button. There

She also plans to give the The space is currently only usable in the warmer months, so she’s hoping to be able to use it yearround if she wins the contest. Among the ideas Gallop has for the yard is a hot tub with an arbor above it. “That will give them a little bit of coverage and privacy,” she says, adding that the hot tub will be heated by natural gas. Gallop also plans to include an outdoor kitchen with natural gas barbecue and a natural gas firepit. A natural gas hot tub is a great idea for homeowners, with its consistent, fast heat and automatic safety shut-off controls for added peace of mind. Swimming pools can also be heated by natural gas. FortisBC notes that a natural gas barbecue can be extremely convenient for homeowners looking for fuel on demand, Sarah Gallop rendering as you’ll never have to deal Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. has envisioned an outdoor space with a natural gas hot tub, natural gas barbecue and with running out of propane natural gas firepit for Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo. or charcoal.

Find it at www. fortisbc.com/energycalculator. FortisBC natural gas customers are also continuing to benefit from some of the lowest prices in a decade, at under $4 per gigajoule.

Gallop’s design features several levels to define the different spaces in the yard. “The space looked disconnected before,” she says. “This gives (Tolsma) different zones in the yard while still being connected.” It also makes the space transition a bit better between the casual entertaining area, the hot tub and the rest of the yard. “It’s a pretty straightforward renovation,” Gallop says. “The homeowner will be very happy with it.” To vote, visit your local Black Press paper’s website and click on the Contests link.

Ensuring quality flooring installation By Robert Prince

A

nything worth doing is worth doing well, goes the old chestnut, and when it comes to your biggest investment – your home – that saying definitely holds true. So if you decide to invest in new laminate flooring for your home – and if you’re planning to do the work yourself – it won’t hurt to have these handy tips from veteran flooring technician Steve Towers in your back pocket. Towers is the owner of Stellar Floor Installations, and has handled most of the laminate, hardwood and engineered flooring installations for Maple Ridge Carpet One for the past decade. “The minute I walk into a house, I can tell whether the laminate flooring was installed professionally or not,” says Towers. “It’s the details and the finishing mostly that give it away.” So what is the flooring professional looking for to make such a determination? The answer is in the transitions, baseboards and edges around doors. “Pretty much anyone can click the boards together,” says Towers, “but a good flooring job is one where every cut is covered so you don’t see them.” The process of starting a good laminate flooring installation begins with the choice of quality materials versus cheaper products. Buy the best you can afford because, like most things, quality makes a difference, says Towers. It’s especially important to get a topgrade underlay to make your home warmer, and quieter. A better underlay can even help alleviate slight imperfections in the installation, Tower adds. Once you have the right materials, the next step to achieving a quality installation is the right tools. You’ll need a hammer, naturally, and a tapping block designed specifically for laminate flooring is a good idea to help avoid breakage. Wall spacers are also a good idea. A good chop saw or table saw is important, and an undercut saw is crucial if you want the job to look professionally done. The undercut saw is used for creating clean cuts on door

jams, posts, or anything else that the flooring needs to get in underneath. Remember, a good job means you don’t see any cuts, so butting things up to door jams or posts is a no-no. Hence, the undercut saw. After you’ve assembled materials and tools, the next step is proper preparation. Towers says it’s simple enough, but not everyone puts in the time and effort, and the end result is a less than perfect floor. You don’t necessarily have to remove the old flooring, depending on what it is, but you do need a smooth, clean, level surface if you want to do things well. It’s critical that you take the time to level the floor before installing laminate, says Towers. If you don’t, the consequences will likely be cracking, squeaks, and possible buckling.

The actual installation should be done in small, manageable sections to ensure straight lines are maintained. A string line to keep things even is a good idea. “The first three rows in any installation are crucial,” says the veteran installer. “If you get those straight, the rest should be easy.” After those first three, Towers suggests installing three to five complete rows at a time, depending on the width of the boards. Anything more and you end up running into extra wastage. You also run a greater chance of going off kilter. A random stagger pattern is also important for the right aesthetic, as it looks more natural. “It’s supposed to look like hardwood, which is always random, so stagger the boards.”

A couple of things to remember. • You shouldn’t have anything screwed through the laminate into the sub-floor. Even sliding door tracks should only be screwed into the laminate itself to ensure that floating floor stays mobile. • A quarter inch gap around the perimeter is really all you need for proper spacing. • If you’ve been storing your laminate in a cold garage prior to installation, make sure you move it indoors to warm up for at least 48 hours prior to the install to ensure it has had time to expand a bit. This is especially important during a winter installation. Robert Prince is a freelance writer who lives in Maple Ridge.

A non-partisan government watchdog says B.C. Agriculture Minister Pat Pimm must resign from cabinet for directly lobbying the Agricultural Land Commission. IntegrityBC argues Pimm crossed a clear line requiring cabinet ministers not interfere with the independence of judges or quasi-judicial commissions like the ALC when he urged the commission over the spring and summer to reverse its decision against allowing a rodeo grounds and campground as a non-farm use on a parcel of Fort St. John farmland in the Agricultural Land Reserve. “When a minister crosses that line, the minister resigns,” IntegrityBC executive director Dermod Travis said. “He didn’t cross it just once. He crossed it a multitude of times. Pimm first wrote to the ALC on the issue May 17 as an MLA elect – two

days after the provincial election – to express “concern” with the initial decision. Pimm’s staffers contacted the ALC once more in June and twice on July 25, when his ministerial assistant said Pimm wanted to know the outcome of the ALC’s reconsideration. That led the ALC to issue a July 26 policy statement scolding Pimm’s representations as “not appropriate” lest it lead to an impression of the commission being politically influenced. The ALC also said in its final Aug. 19 decision rejecting the rodeo use that any MLA who thinks a decision before the ALC is too significant to leave as an independent decision can try to persuade cabinet to take that file out of the commission’s hands. It said the ALC exists as an independent entity to avoid basing farmland decisions on “the politically expedient, the crisis of the day or short-term profit that sacrifice agricultural land forever. “The commission exists precisely to prevent the British Columbia public waking up one day and asking ‘what happened to our agricultural land.’”

Pimm told CKNW Monday he has stopped making direct interventions in files with the ALC, but feels he did nothing wrong and was merely acting in his advocacy role as an MLA on an issue of local concern. Travis said he clearly continued to act on the file after becoming minister in June. Earlier this year, federal Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan resigned his post for inappropriately writing a letter in 2011 on behalf of a constituent regarding a case coming before the federal tax court. Travis said Duncan quit quickly and honourably and Premier Christy Clark must insist Pimm do the same. “If you have ministers running around thinking that it is okay to lobby judges, then we’re going to have a serious problem maintaining the separation of the two institutions.” Travis said Pimm’s interference with the ALC also taints the government’s leaked plans to consider major changes to the commission, including potentially bringing it under the direct control of the agriculture ministry.

Specific details about running for election can be found in the Candidates’ Package posted on our website, vancity.com. If you require a hard copy of this information, please contact the Governance Department at 604.877.7595.

Returning Officers We are seeking returning officers to assist with the election in selected branches between Friday, April 11 and Thursday, April 17, 2014. If you are a Vancity member and are interested in becoming a returning officer, please visit vancity.com for details on how to apply. All applications must be received by no later than Friday, January 17, 2014. Only successful applicants will be contacted by Friday January 31, 2014. Past experience as a returning officer will not guarantee re-employment.

‘Bad sign’ Metro Vancouver’s determination to protect scarce agricultural land is in for a test as two local cities push to reclassify farms for development and the provincial government eyes radical changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve. Richmond Coun. Harold Steves, who helped found the ALR 40 years ago, says the recent moves send an unfortunate signal that the firm line of the past may soon crumble, making trade in farmland very lucrative. “The speculators are out buying up land already,” said Steves. He pointed to a 130-hectare parcel of ALR farmland in south Richmond listed for sale this year at $55 million – at least double its agricultural value. The most prominent is Delta’s controversial Southlands development, which was approved by the local council last week and will go to an eventual vote of the Metro board. The 217-hectare parcel of Tsawwassen agricultural land is outside the regional growth plan’s urban containment boundary and redrawing the line to allow construction of 950 homes and change the land designation from agricultural to general urban will take a two-thirds weighted vote of Metro directors. On top of the internal tussling between local cities and the region over the growth strategy comes the province’s core review, which in part targets the Agricultural Land Commission. Cabinet documents leaked last week suggested the ALR could be split into two zones, with an “anything goes” mandate in Interior areas beyond the Okanagan. It also indicated the ALC could be modernized by moving it inside the agriculture ministry and that community growth applications could be decided by local governments. “That would effectively pit one community against the other in a rush for urban growth, expanding urban sprawl throughout the region,” Steves said. Bill Bennett, the minister heading the core review, has denied major changes to the ALR are in the offing.

Shannon Webster, a Grade 10 student at Garibaldi secondary, won best lifter in the junior girls’ class at a fall event.

The power not to just lift, but heal S

Powerlifting Association Fall Classic, with an impressive 231-pound deadlift, which is double her 114-pound weight. She also did a 165-pound squat and a 110-pound bench press. “I never, ever thought that I would be doing a competition when I started,” she said. Powerlifters compete in gender and weight classes, so the playing field is level. Kassidy is surprised more people don’t try it. “I think it’s awesome. It’s not popular, but if everyone tried it, and saw the improvements, they would like it.”

hannon Webster used to really worry about her daughter.

Her young and athletic girl was a pre-teen when she fell through a door, and plunged down to the ground where a deck should have been. Kassidy picked herself up, and brushed herself off, like the ball player that she was. She didn’t want to be hurt. But a searing pain shot up into her back, and then down to her leg. Something was really wrong. The next day – Halloween three years ago – she was in surgery at Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, having two pins the size of deck screws inserted into her broken hip. The doctors warned Shannon that Kassidy had a long rehabilitation ahead of her. She might always walk with a limp. One leg could end up shorter than the other. A sudden growth spurt in Kassidy could mean she would need a second surgical procedure. Kassidy could bear no weight on her legs, so for six months she was either in a wheelchair or on crutches. She missed most of Grade 7. As soon as she could, Shannon put her daughter into swimming courses, hoping to get her active, and fully rehabilitated. She couldn’t know how far the girl would go. Soon Kassidy completed all her swimming lessons. She still walked with a bit of a limp. During physiotherapy work, they got to know Adam Francilia, a lo-

Maple Ridge’s own Andrew Ladd, the captain of the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets, trains with him, and he has developed a unique workout for Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer, specifically adapted to a goaltender’s needs. Kassidy’s rehabilitation was in good hands. It took about a year of real anxiety over her daughter’s physical well being, but then Shannon started to see that Kassidy had turned a corner. She did three weekly workouts with Francilia. He explained that she has to keep the muscles around her injured hip strong, so exercise needs to be part of her routine. “As Kass and I worked together

throughout her rehabilitation process, I saw that she had certain unique qualities that I often see in successful athletes,” Francilia said. “She is incredibly positive and honest, mentally tough, very motivated and she trusts in the process. This is why we had such success with her rehab.” In July, he asked her what she wanted to do for a workout. “I want to power-lift, like Mira,” she answered. It is the rare teenage girl who wants to become a powerlifter, but perhaps not if they train in the same gym as Mira Slapinski. She is a 50-ish woman who is both a yoga instructor and an Ironman competitor. She is tiny, 103 pounds. She suffered a broken pelvis in a

bike accident. Slapinski challenged herself in her rehab, stepping out of her comfort zone, and took on power-lifting training. She became a Canadian champion. Kassidy, now a Grade 10 student at Garibaldi secondary, threw herself at the powerlifting workouts, the same way Slapinski did. “Kass was very intrigued as she watched Mira train for her powerlifting competitions,” Francilia said. “I could see a little spark in her eye and knew that she’d be up for the challenge.” Kassidy loves the sport, enjoys pushing herself to the limits, and seeing how quickly the gains come, week after week. Kassidy won best lifter in the junior girls’ class at the recent B.C.

“I could see a little spark in her eye and knew that she’d be up for the challenge.” Adam Francilia, trainer

If it works for Kassidy, it works for her mother. “Fitness has to be a way of life for her – that’s her lifestyle, and she absolutely loves it,” said Shannon. “We’re thrilled to see her get so strong again, and start succeeding again.” Each trophy an athlete get means something different to them. Kassidy’s powerlifting trophy symbolizes how an injury that could have changed her life is in the past. She worked her way past it. “It’s way behind me.”

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

They say that time heals everything, but I know this isn’t so. Because it hurts as much today, as it did nine years ago. My heart still aches with sadness, and silent tears still flow. For what it means to love you, no one will ever know. I miss those trips that we went on, and all those trips we would have gone. I miss our talks, and our evening walks. I miss our hiking, and our sea wall cycling. I miss our visiting on the Sunshine Coast, But Honey Bun I miss YOU most.

Always Remembered Never Forgotten Your Loving Husband Gary

Pallone – Maud Ruth (Nee Rogers) Our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and auntie passed away graciously at home on November 4. Predeceased by her husband Benedict in 1970, and son Ronald in 1998. She is survived by her children Thomas (Bev), Cynthia, Jonathon, Angela (Len), Pamela (Georges), Michele, Denise (David); daughter-in-law Sharon; 11 grandchildren; and 13 great grandchildren. Prayers were said on Wednesday, November 13 at 5:30PM at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church – 22561 121 Ave, Maple Ridge. Funeral Mass was held on Thursday, November 14 at 11:00AM at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. Reception to follow mass at the St. Joseph Center, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. Interment is to take place on Friday, November 15th at 11:00AM, Ocean View Burial Park – 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby. Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba mom married Ben and moved shortly after to Vancouver. Husband Ben, was a member of IBEW local 213 and worked on out-of-town construction projects throughout British Columbia. Mother kept the family united and socially united the parents of our block on 13th Avenue with her many teas and sympathy for struggling families and the aged. As a volunteer, she taught ‘Arts & Crafts’ for the Kivan Boys’ Club and helped to organize a Parent Involvement Group for which she received a citation of appreciation. She also canvassed actively for the Red Feather Campaign and later the Community Chest. When a doctor prescribed two aspirins for an earache and bed rest for a neighbour’s screaming infant the distraught mother came to mom. Meningitis was averted through mom’s quick action. At a moment’s notice she took on teaching a Drama Course at the Grandview Community Center. Drama was no stranger to mom. As a young girl she would often accompany her mother, Emma, in a horse drawn buggy, wrapped in a buffalo robe, along the shores of Lake Winnipeg in subzero weather, making house calls. Emma, a midwife, was the only medical help in those far reaching communities. In mom’s teenage years she was an avid swimmer often daring others to dive off the piers at Winnipeg beach and tackle the waves. She loved to relay the story of swimming to the veteran’s hospital to get a cigarette to burn the leeches from her and her cousins. After the passing of my father mom made sure she and the daughters still at home visited England and Italy. This was just the beginning of her desire to travel. Her many trips to Florida earned her the moniker of ‘Miami Maud’. Mom also loved her cruises to Alaska and Mexico. She never stopped making friends and new acquaintances wherever she visited. Loved by so many, too many to mention, she will be sadly missed. Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.gardenhill.ca
