Council ponders police finances by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Police in Maple Ridge, and elsewhere in the Lower Mainland, are turning into first responders for treating the mentally ill, according to numbers given recently by the top officer at the local RCMP detachment. In the past five years, the number of mental health files that police have dealt with has jumped 37-per-cent, while the number of mental health apprehensions – where police take people to hospital for other care – climbed by 50 per cent. Fuel and equipment costs are also rising, show figures given to council Monday, and there are more computerbased crimes, and investigations are more complicated. Because of tougher standards in court, investigating a domestic assault case now takes 10 times longer than it did 30 years ago. See RCMP, p4

Bad year for bears in Ridge 12 were killed, mostly for eating garbage left, put out by Moni s ha M ar tin s staff reporter

A dozen bears were killed this year in Maple Ridge as repeated calls for residents to keep their garbage secure continue to fall on deaf ears. B.C.’s Conservation Officer Service reports the municipality, along with the Tri-Cities, leads the

province in nuisance calls, despite a Bear Aware program that’s been in operation since 2012. There were almost 100 more calls from Maple Ridge to the conservation service this year over last (683 from 588). The number of bears euthanized this year is four times the number killed in 2012 and slightly lower than 2011, when 15 bears were put down. It’s a simple equation. More people are moving into areas frequented by bears, which use wildlife corridors next to develop-

ments to get around in search of food. And “as we develop on those hillsides, absolutely we’re going to see an increase in conflict,” said Sgt. Steve Jacobi of the B.C. Conservation Officer Service. It means the COS’s Maple Ridgebased officers are stretched to the limit. The District of Maple Ridge has a Bear Aware program that targets neighbourhoods which generate the most conflict calls, to educate residents. It’s been a year since a bylaw was put in place restricting when

garbage can be put out, but the district hasn’t handed out a single fine. Bylaws director Liz Holitzki said her department issued 74 warning notices to people who put their trash out before the morning of pickup, but no tickets were necessary as there were no second offences at the same properties. Bear Aware will continue its education campaign through the winter because not all bears hibernate. Male bears will stick around if there’s enough food. See Bears, p8

Medical pot grow readying to go Agrima awaiting Health Canada approval S tor y by Phil Melnychuk

I

t’s difficult to spot Agrima Botanicals’ new medical marijuana operation in old, rural Maple Ridge. From the road, the old buildings and fences remain unchanged and fit in with the rustic nature of the area.

It’s only when you drive past the two sets of gates, an old stable and into the parking lot that you see new construction. Work is underway to extend a building that is two years old, and which itself is decorated in muted colours and trim so it looks like another old Maple Ridge barn. But inside is where the work is going on. In a large room bathed in green light, 1,000-watt metal-halide lights hang down from the ceiling, creating a scene that like a hatching area for alien invaders. It’s actually called the vegetative-growth room, where dozens of medical marijuana plants are sprouted and nurtured under 18-hour lighting sessions that mimic the long days of spring and early summer. After six or seven weeks, the plants are moved to the flowering room, where the buds grow, the source of the marijuana. After another two months, the buds are harvested and tests done to determine THC levels and impurities. Because the pot is being used for medicinal purposes, the product can have no contaminants or bacteria in order to protect those with weakened immune systems. “We’re pretty confident in what we’re doing and we’re pretty proud of what we’ve done,” chief operations officer James Poelzer, who studied business at Simon Fraser University, says during a recent tour. What Agrima has done is start an operation that it hopes meets Health Canada standards for security, product purity, odour and environmental control. With the building and technology in place, and the District of Maple Ridge passing a bylaw that puts pot production into the Agricultural Land Reserve, the company is just awaiting a Health Canada licence that would allow it to grow

Thousand-watt metal-halide lights boost plant growth. medical pot under the new commercial regulations that kick in April 1. “As long as we adhere to all the rules and regulations that they set out, I don’t see why we wouldn’t be able to get licenced.” Part of the transition to a new system is removing the stigma that’s been connected to previous pot productions resulting from ramshackle basement operations, grow rips, fires and organized crime. Now, research, lab coats and business plans will be part of any medical marijuana operation. For instance, Agrima has recently

Contributed

hired a SFU masters graduate in biology to maintain quality assurance, another Health Canada requirement. It will also work with SFU to find ways to reduce mold and bacteria growth. Health Canada regulations require that no pesticides or fungicides be used in the pot production, unlike those for food crops. While there may be other companies just as far as advanced in the business, they’re mostly keeping a low profile. For the past year and a half, Agrima has been producing medical pot under the current system,

where patients can either grow their own or buy products from small, licensed medical growers. With that changing, production will ramp up to a commercial scale. Exports could drive further growth as more countries legalize the product. As for the neighbours who may not like a pot operation in their back yard, Health Canada standards address the concerns about health, safety or noise. Before air is vented out, it’s first treated with ultraviolet light, then charcoal filtered, then passed through a hepa filter. Negative air pressure helps to keep the air inside. Following a tour of the operation in the summer, Mayor Ernie Daykin said he couldn’t detect any marijuana odour after standing outside the building. The set-up uses Metro Vancouver water, but much of it is recycled, and distributed so that healthy mature plants absorb most of the nutrients during the high growth cycle. When it’s discharged to the septic system, the water from Agrima has only concentrations of one part per million of nutrients. To keep the building safe, the operation has to meet the same standards as a bank or pharmacy, where opiates and possibly lethal

drugs are stored. A concrete safe will provide a secure area for the product while two fences guard the perimeter. Infra-red monitoring of the outside grounds will alert Sonitrol security about any intruders. Poelzer said Maple Ridge’s pot bylaw, which forces all medical grows on to Agricultural Land Reserve, is a good one. “It makes sense,” he said. He points out that the statement by the Agricultural Land Commission that marijuana operations are legitimate uses of farmland will make it impossible to prohibit them in other cities. Poelzer says the company has tried to inform people about what’s it doing, though it doesn’t want its location known or photos taken inside until it’s been granted its licence. The company held an open house with its neighbours in the summer and has attended council meetings, and hosted politicians during a tour this spring. The company has also hosted tours for staff from Delta, Richmond, North Vancouver. “We’ve been open throughout the whole process, to give them an idea of what we’re doing,” Poelzer said. “We’ve really worked on building a solid relationship with our

just before council begins its budget discussions next week. With the numbers just out, council will weigh what can, or should be cut from next year. “Because there may be some decisions there,” said Mayor Ernie Daykin. Assuming Maple Ridge hires an extra officer to keep up with population growth, overall policing costs could rise by seven per cent. But council could just as easily cut the $20-million police budget, the largest piece of the municipal pie. According to the presentation, wage costs will climb by just under two per cent next financial year, from April 2014 to March 2015. Total regular pay will go from $7.8 million this year to $7.9 million next year. Overtime costs are capped at $630,000 for both years, with two per-centincreases in the three years following. When all the costs are added in, Maple Ridge’s policing bill will jump to $16.9 million. Another $3.5 million will be spent on police support and housing. With Maple Ridge using the calendar year, policing costs are set to rise by about seven per cent. Fluegel said later that Maple Ridge is among many municipalities dealing with an increas-

ing number of cases involving the mentally ill. “We have such a volume of files,” the detachment dedicated one officer full-time to handling such cases. That’s resulted in a reduction by more than an hour of wait time that police have to spend in the Ridge Meadows Hospital waiting room, he pointed out. The Salvation Army’s Caring Place says the same thing. “We see more mentally ill people all the time,” said Caring Place director Darrell Pilgram. At the daily meal program, 38 per cent of the people self-identify as mentally ill, he added. “That’s a huge number.” Other costs are pushing up police costs. “Policing has changed a lot in the last 10 years and technology is a major driver of it,” Fleugel said. “Threats from Facebook didn’t happen five years ago.” Fleugel said most crimes now require police to find and seize any video recordings of the incident. That video has to be processed, stored and presented to Crown in the proper format. A decade ago, police didn’t have to contend with as much Internet crime or try to find a stolen cellphone that’s been located in another city. He also told council that Maple Ridge

is growing faster than other municipalities. As a result, the police force has to match that growth or fall behind in the stats that measure police performance. Since 2003, the number of RCMP officers working in Maple Ridge has risen from 68 to 93 – an increase of 27 per cent. That’s due to increase next year by another officer. As Maple Ridge’s population increases, its police force must also increase to maintain the police ratio per population, which is already one of the lowest. In Maple Ridge in 2011, that sat at one cop for every 874 people. New Westminster had a lower ratio, at 629 people per officer. Coquitlam was at 841, while Pitt Meadows was 834. When it comes to caseload per officer, Maple Ridge Mounties are in the middle of the pack. Each officer is handling 66 Criminal Code cases, while Chilliwack RCMP officers deal with 76 each. Abbotsford police have it the easiest, with only 38 cases per officer. As for the total number of Criminal Code offences, Maple Ridge is also in the middle of the pack, with 5,844 offences, while Kamloops (with a larger population) has 9,202. In Pitt Meadows, 1,126 offences were recorded.

District following B.C. smoking law by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Maple Ridge’s old smoking bylaw is going up in smoke and being replaced by a new one that will exceed the B.C. minimum of three metres that smokers must be from doorways and windows. Council told staff to draft a bylaw and to ensure the distances exceeded the provincial standard, although the exact distances remain to be decided. At its Monday workshop meeting, staff presented two options for upgrading the bylaw: ei-

ther follow the provincial standards and require smokers to stay three metres from doors and windows; or, double that distance to six metres. Setting tougher standards, though, means the district would have to do its own enforcement because Fraser Health only enforces provincial standards. It also would have to produce its own signs showing the specific distances it has set. However, the drawback of adopting only the provincial standards means there’s inadequate distance from playing fields and parks. Under the old bylaw,

written in 1997, there were no minimum smoking distances for outdoor smokers. Instead, the law still allowed indoor smoking rooms in restaurants and bars. As well, smoking was still allowed in gaming centres and casinos, with only 30 per cent of the seating area allotted to non smokers. Starting with Manitoba and New Brunswick in 2004, Canadian provinces eventually outlawed all smoking in bars and restaurants. As well, employees were still allowed to smoke in the work place, as long as they

were in their own smoking room, sealed off and separately cooled and heated. According to a staff report, about half the cities in Metro Vancouver, have greater distances, 7.5 metres for Port Moody and Surrey and seven metres for Abbotsford. Mission, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Langley city, Delta and New Westminster only require three-metre distances. Pitt Meadows, Richmond and Chilliwack don’t have any antismoking bylaw, allowing Fraser Health to enforce the provincial standards.

Remains found those of woman reported missing vassed by officers and Ridge Meadows traffic services set up a road block mid-October to hand out pamphlets to commuters. “Police were very concerned of her mental well-being, and this never changed throughout the search for her,” said Sgt. Dale Somerville. Young was found by a man on a rural property in east Maple Ridge. Police are now working with

Santa Train Pulls for Local Food Banks FOOD DRIVE

WCE will accept food donations at all stations from Dec. 7th - Dec. 14th *Not valid for Santa Train tickets.

by John Scott

Choosing A Carpet Cleaning Professional Part 3: Pre-Spray When choosing a carpet cleaning professional, you will come across all kinds of technicians and all kinds of methods for carpet cleaning. The inexpensive companies tend to run the cleaning solution through the cleaning wand directly into the carpet, even though the industry standard method is to pre-spray the carpet, then run a rinse through the wand. There are definite advantages to the pre-spray method. First of all is something called “dwell time”. That’s the amount of time that the solution is actually on the carpet. With the pre-spray method, the cleaning solution has time to soak into the carpet and travel down the fibre. This dwell time gives the cleaning solution longer to work on breaking down the dirt and other nasties in your carpet, prior to extraction. Then the rinse is needed to remove the cleaning solution from the carpet. For those companies that choose not to pre-spray, and instead run the cleaning solution through the wand, there is only a fraction of a second for the solution to react with the soils before the vacuum sucks up what it can. Worst of all, this method leaves the wet cleaning solution behind without rinsing it. The solution will become sticky as it dries, and will attract dirt much more quickly than if the carpet hadn’t been cleaned at all! Think about it… When you shower, you don’t just squeeze the shampoo out of your hair, do you? Of course not. You rinse it out so your hair won’t be sticky. The same principle applies to the cleaning of your carpets; you need to flush out all the soils AND the cleaning solutions.

From December 7th to the 14th, canned and non-perishable food can be dropped off at all West Coast Express stations during the morning commute, AND at our Santa Train donation station partners (Black Press and Country FM offices). To find your closest donation point, visit translink.ca/santatrain. While food donations are appreciated, please note complimentary WCE return tickets for the Santa Train will only be issued in exchange for new, unwrapped toys. West Coast Express would like to acknowledge and thank the following Santa Train sponsors:

Running a rinse through the wand also allows for the opportunity to use rinse agents and additional deodourizers, and sanitizers, as well. Rinse agents not only assist in breaking down the cleaning solutions, but brighteners can also be added to assist in making your carpet look like new again! For best results, make sure your carpet care professional is offering a pre-treatment method and is NOT running the cleaning solution through the wand.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Goodwill mission Is it too soon to urge a little peace and good will this Christmas? We’ve all seen the alternative, and it isn’t pretty. Some of us, it seems, are so busy pursuing the material side of the holidays that we’ve lost sight of the spirit. Stressed-out shoppers grimly hunting bargains in the aisles, screaming kids with surly parents and couples who look like they’re going to a funeral instead of experiencing the joy of the season. In short, people who bring their bad mood into a retail outlet to share with the staff and other consumers. Examples of bad behavior abound. While this can be a tough time of year if your finances are tight, it doesn’t have to be a fiscal or emotional crisis. After all, the most expensive item in the store is no gift at all if the giver is grinding their teeth about the cost and the resulting damage to their credit rating. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong about giving big gifts, but not at the cost of civility and peace of mind. There are any number of inexpensive ways of celebrating the holiday season that don’t require busting your bank balance or losing your mind. Try asking the people in the stores, nicely, and you might discover some clever alternatives. So this Christmas, a suggestion: if you feel yourself starting to get anxious or angry, pause and take a deep breath and try to keep things in their proper perspective. Try smiling. Do something nice, like holding a door open or letting a driver merge in front. It doesn’t cost a thing. – Black Press Tell us what you think @ www.mapleridgenews.com

Plan hatched to restore Katzie Slough F

orty years ago, Katzie Slough was a sanctuary for Scott Magri, a bullied nine-year-old from Pitt Meadows. With a fishing rod in hand, he’d escape the pain of his daily life for a few hours. Magri’s favorite spot was a quiet, shaded Along the Fraser pool at the foot of Jack Emberly Hammond Road, where cutthroat trout lurked. They’re mostly gone now, along with the clean flowing water and natural plants that supported coho. Today, what you notice is an irrigation ditch with pockets of garbage. Magri, now 45, wants the natural beauty of the waterway restored, along with the fish. He has a plan and the will power to make this happen. “The first step is to get water flowing the way it used to, from the Fraser River at Wharf Street in Hammond to the Pitt River at Kennedy Pump Station,” he says. Recently, biologist John Kelly of ARMS told Magri that tidal influences could make his idea work. ARMS manager Greta Borick-Cunningham, who explored the Slough with Magri, says she’ll pull out trash and help replace invasive plants with native ones fish need. Magri and I then met Ross Davies, of KEEPS, at Spencer Creek, a tributary of Kanaka Creek. It winds through Albion Flats from the Lougheed Hwy. and Tama-

Q

uestion of the week:

rack Lane. Davies pointed to a coho spawner that slipped into Spencer through a fish-friendly flood control gate made possible by a $310,000 grant from the Pacific Salmon Foundation in 2010. Magri wants one like it at the Kennedy pump, an ancient facility that requires expensive maintenance. It’s overdue for replacement. “The old Spencer pump,” explained Davies, “used to be known as a fish grinder. Adults didn’t make it through. These ones aren’t from around here, probably looking for new channels, and found this one.” Davies says the new pump surprised everybody by making Spencer Creek fish habitat again. This year he observed “good sized smolts ready to head out to sea. “I don’t see why the Slough couldn’t be productive again, too.” That would be great for the recreational fishery. “There’s federal money for that.” Official studies of the slough, including a 2013 Fish and Habitat Inventory commissioned by the City of Pitt Meadows, confirmed the potential. The inventory shows salmonids always inhabited the slough. A 1978 survey found “a healthy population of cutthroat and good habitat,” and one in 1999 that showed, “catches of cutthroat, coho and chinook salmon.” The slough provides water for agriculture in summer. At other times, it’s controlled with pumps to avoid flooding. City management practices, suggests the report, should boost fish habitat at the same time. Modest fish habitat improvements,

Should the District of Maple Ridge and City of Pitt Meadows amalgamate? Yes: 51% – No: 49%

removing sediment and replacing problem vegetation with native plants, have the potential to improve conditions for salmonids, while allowing the city to improve infrastructures, states the report. Over time, a cleaner stream, the report says, means less maintenance cost for taxpayers. The slough has other problems, of course. Denuded stream banks promote erosion, and agricultural pesticides and fertilizers would threaten fish that returned after ecological improvements. But Magri grew up with local berry farmers who’ve been life-long friends. “They’ve told me they’d cooperate with restoration efforts because clean water is better than dirty water for their crops.” Indeed, the various stakeholders of the slough seem ready and willing to roll up their sleeves to restore Katzie Slough for people and salmonids. A city worker born in Pitt told me recently she used to canoe on it. Many people did. On Dec. 10th, Magri may mention this as he outlines his plan to city councilors at a regular meeting (6 p.m.). What he says should interest fishermen, nature lovers, taxpayers, and homeowners in the Wildwood area, plagued by drainage problems. Those began with a bike path that backed up water like a dam. Culverts near Airport Road intended to move it through Bains Pump Station failed. They were seated above the water flow. “If we finally work with nature,” says Magri, “we can bring back fish and get rid of water problems for good. Katzie Slough could be safe place for all of us again.”

THE NEWS/commentary We want to keep Pitt Meadows unique Editor, The News: Re: A tale of one city, a rural district and rising taxes (The News, Nov. 29). Amalgamation is touchy and emotional subject, especially for those of us who live in Pitt Meadows. The city is unique and we want to keep it that way. There are ways of saving money without giving away our autonomy. Pitt Meadows would be in a losing position if it amalgamated with Maple Ridge because Pitt Meadows councillors could easily be outvoted on any issue because of the majority of Maple Ridge council members. Annette Code Pitt Meadows

‘Hospital staff so helpful’ Editor, The News: I fainted in Baillie House in October while volunteering with the bingo game. Everyone was so helpful. The nurses, doctors, recreation workers and the ambulance drivers were so special. They helped me get the care I needed. A big thank you goes out to them from me. They were all so patient. Linda Argue Maple Ridge

online comments Cost if independence Lorne Riding · Maple Ridge, British Columbia: Re: A tale of one city, a rural district and rising taxes. The cost of independence is getting to be far too costly for us taxpayers. I believe the egos have to rest and the talks should go on.

Social media has a place Robin Barker · Nizwá, Al Bāţinah, Oman: Re: ‘Don’t tweet while meeting.’ My students are not allowed to use Facebook/Twitter in class, nor would I be allowed to pull out my cell and start plugging away on Facebook/Twitter in a staff meeting. While I agree social media is in the ‘now’, there are still appropriate places to utilize this tool. I’m not paying taxes for the elected to play Farmville or text to the selected few.

Uninformed reasons Dan Banov · University of British Columbia: Re: Oil pipelines put money in our pockets. Protesters may have a feeling they are doing the right thing, but if they are ignorant of the truth or real facts, then they are simply there. But what is the truth is sometimes simply a viewpoint, as you expressed a general view that money usually corrupts. People stand out to protest for a lot of uninformed reasons, like the fear GMO foods or that resources are being used up. We have 50 per cent of the U.S. population that fears gun controls will make the country unsafe, or current fears that legalizing marijuana will create increase in drug use. Both examples have protesters who have no basis in reality ... As for money put in the community, it does not get to community – it goes to increase the wealth of those in the entire province in many ways.

Keep on rockin’ Glenn Allen · Maple Ridge, British Columbia: Re: Getting older really isn’t that bad. If you’re too old to row the boat, there’s still fun to be had rockin’ it.

‘Refugees people like you and me’ I

f a country’s citizens are its lifeblood, Syria has been literally and figuratively bleeding people for more than two years, creating one of the worst humanitarian crises since the Second World War. Commentary The brutal civil war in Syria is ut- Andrew Holota terly Byzantine in its cast of combatants and political complexity. It has its infancy in the Arab Spring, but with historic sectarianism deep in its genes, and modern Islamic fundamentalism twisting the DNA. There’s a story in Jordan that the war started as a child’s game, when a youngster scrawled an anti-government slogan on a wall. If so, that act launched civil unrest, which opened multiple thick scripts of political and religious agendas – each seeking a slippery stranglehold in a country now awash in violence and misery. Key combatants include Syria president Bashar Assad’s military, backed in areas by Lebanon’s Hezbollah, and opposed by a bewildering host of forces, including the Syrian Free Army (FSA), the al Nusra Front, and the Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS). There is a growing presence of al Qaeda-linked militias involving thousands of foreign jihadist fighters, which are opposed by the Westernbacked FSA. In the mix are umbrella groups,

splinter factions and shifting alliances. Hardliners are pitted against moderates. Meanwhile, on the sidelines are numerous nations providing financial backing for various factions. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iran and Russia are all said to be providing money to wage war, jockeying for power and position when, and if Syria is finally torn asunder. There is no international military solution. Bringing down Assad opens the door for al Qaeda. Eliminating al Qaeda would require an invasion of Syria, igniting a fire storm involving the entire Middle East. Power politics may bring an end to this, but at present, making peace is like grasping a wisp of smoke. It’s all very distant and obscure for Canadians, although our nation is among the leaders in providing humanitarian support. For most people, though, it’s an internal war in a region known for conflict. However, aside from the appalling refugee situation – now near three million outside of the country, and millions more internally displaced – the international stakes of this war are chilling. Prof. Rupen Das, director of community development for the Lebanese Society of Education and Development, who taught at Humber College in Ontario, provides this insight from his office in Beirut: “This is just not another battle out there that doesn’t concern you … as horrific as the Congo was, this is not the Congo. Refugees are flooding Europe.

“Afghanistan was far away, and al Qaeda was contained there, other than occasional stuff. Al Qaeda is real in Syria, and it’s more radicalized than it ever was in Afghanistan. It’s a bigger operation ... it is on the borders of sensitive countries like Israel and Iraq, Turkey and Lebanon. It will destabilize the region like Afghanistan never did. “And if Canada doesn’t care, they’re living in a fool’s paradise – that it really doesn’t concern them.” If many Canadians can’t grasp the international security consequences of continued war in Syria, then perhaps they can focus on the humanitarian crisis. Asked why Canadians should care, Anita Delhaas-van Dijk, national director for World Vision in Beirut, offers this observation: “These refugees are not necessarily poor people. These refugees are people like you and me. “It can be your case one day, God forbid. Or it can me, who is in their shoes. “They didn’t have necessarily a poor life in Syria. They had lives like you and me. They had their jobs, their dreams, their future in front of them. “One refugee is already a lot, and this refugee can be you.” If we can’t understand this, then we aren’t seeing a child’s writing on the wall. Andrew Holota is editor of the Abbotsford News, a Black Press affiliate. He was in Jordan and Lebanon last week, travelling at the invitation of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, a key Canadian NGO providing humanitarian aid to refugees in the region.

Philanthropy is changing, and why it matters By Kevin McCort

I

n the aftermath of the devastating Philippines typhoon, many Canadians may question whether they can really make a difference in the world by supporting a charity. Paradoxically, we are fast approaching the traditional time of year when people focus on charitable giving – a time when charities across the country try to attract donors to support their cause. This is a good time to reflect, to consider why philanthropy matters in today’s society. We know that people feel good when they help other people. A lot of people may be feeling good these days. Canadians give $10 billion to charities every year. This amount is growing, albeit slowly, at about one per cent annually. What is growing is the number of charities. It’s estimated there are 86,500 charities across Canada, and 3,500 new ones are created every year. This increase is a clear indication of need in the community. For example, food bank

usage is at near record levels. More than 833,000 people used a food bank in Canada last March. Even more disturbing is that one in eight of those food bank clients was employed at the time. The ranks of the working poor – those who have a hard time making ends meet despite having a job – are swelling. This puts increasing strain on the resources of charities to meet the growing need. At the same time, more and more charities are going after a pool of donations that is not growing as fast as demand, nor is it outpacing growth in fundraising expenses. There is considerable debate as to the cause, but the result is clear, it is costing Canadian charities more than ever to raise money. Twenty years ago, it cost 18 cents to raise $1. Now it costs Canadian charities 35 cents or more to raise that same dollar. Competing for program money is one of the greatest challenges facing the nonprofit sector. This competitive environment has prompted organizations to pursue riskier fundraising strategies, like using celebrity spokespeople,

or retaining expensive fundraising consultants. If these fail to produce cost-effective results, the charity risks alienating long-term donors and eroding its most valuable asset – public trust. Charities also face pressure from another quarter − their donors. Much of modern philanthropy today is very public. Donors want to give for good reasons, but also want public recognition of their giving. Modern donors often want to play a meaningful role in the distribution of their gifts. No longer content to wait for the benefits to appear, they want to see the results of their generosity. They want metrics, and they want it now. Dedicating hospital wings, theatres, study halls or stadiums is part of this trend, and another way for charities to acknowledge high profile giving. It’s a reality that will continue, though it’s a doubleedged sword. Increasing publicity around large donations can alienate smaller donors and dilute the pride they feel. The new generation of young donors is far more op-

timistic about the future than their “baby boom” counterparts. They are also more generous with their time and money, and more likely to sit on boards and committees than previous generations. They trust charities more than anyone, with 83 per cent of those under 25 expressing “a lot, or some” trust, compared to 76 per cent of those over 65. Numerous examples exist of collaborative fundraising ventures, where charities combine resources to raise money efficiently, align program work to find efficiencies, and reduce duplication. These collaborative efforts need to be highlighted and supported throughout the charitable sector. As the holiday season approaches, it’s important for Canadians to recognize that philanthropy does matter; that there are many ways to give back, whether it’s a gift of time, money or expertise; and, most importantly, all donations, large and small, matter.

Bears from front

“Twelve bears destroyed is an obscene number,” said Dan Mikolay, Maple Ridge’s Bear Aware coordinator. Some of them were euthanized because of an injury, but most were killed after becoming hooked on garbage and other attractants. Garbage is still the No. 1 reason bears are wandering into residential neighbourhoods. The second is bird feeders. “This year we have focused on high-incident areas, trying to educate residents on the need to properly store their garbage, not putting bird feeders out, and recycling their BBQ grease at the recycling depot,” said Mikolay.

Despite the number of bears killed, he believes progress is slowly being made. “I am seeing more bear-resistant garbage cans out on the curb when I go out to check on early set-outs. It is a small investment, but it dramatically reduces wildlife conflict,” he added. Ross Davies, with the Kanaka Education and Environmental Partnership Society, has also noticed more bears around this year. His latest encounter with a bruin was two weeks ago. For a community to be completely “Bear Smart,” every single home would need to be bear-proof. “It’s like a chain, one missing link and you have a problem,” he added.

Jewellers AND FURTHER TAKE NOTICE that a copy of the aforesaid bylaws and copies of staff reports and other information considered by Council relevant to the matters contained in the bylaws will also be available for public inspection at the Municipal Hall, Planning Department counter, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. from November 29, 2013 to December 10, 2013, Saturdays, Sundays and Statutory Holidays excepted.

Davies recommends making a bear’s visit to your property as unpleasant as possible. Toot your car horn, yell and drive the bear away. “If he’s in the back 40, then that’s no problem. But if he’s out on your porch, he’s got to be told it’s your den, you are the bigger bear,” said Davies, who lives along Fern Crescent, a neighbourhood often frequented by garbageaddicted bears.

“We’ve never had to fink on a black bear the whole time we’ve lived here.” Ross Davies, KEEPS

“We’ve never had to fink on a black bear the whole time we’ve lived here. But if a bear doesn’t leave your property within a minute, then he needs to be reported.” Meanwhile, province-wide, 325 black bears were killed last year, compared to 460 in 2012. Calls for black bear and grizzly sightings were also down, to 13,023 from 14,549 the year previous. – with files from The Tri-City News

Roosters to pay for bouncer’s assault Judge awards Jacob Reimer $20,000 in punitive damages

the parking lot,” Justice Jenkins said in a ruling Tuesday. “It is also particularly objectionable that the beating was carried out in front of several of the patrons of Rooster’s who …were exposed to incredible brutality.” The incident took place on Sept. 13, 2009, when an intoxicated Reimer tried to enter the country bar with three friends and a can of beer in his cargo shorts. After staff refused to let Reimer into the bar, he became aggressive and was “physically removed” by two bouncers. Reimer and his friend, Ryan Murchie, walked to the parking lot to wait for their friends to leave Roosters. Moments later, however, he was attacked by a bouncer Sam Turnau

by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter

A man badly beaten by bouncers for trying to sneak a beer into a Pitt Meadows bar has been awarded more than $20,000 by a court. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Jenkins found Rooster’s Country Cabaret “vicariously liable for the negligence of their staff ” who assaulted Jacob Aidan Reimer four years ago. “The assault in the parking lot was unprovoked and the entire episode should have ended with Mr. Reimer … walking out through

as other staff stood by and watched. The beating left Reimer with head injuries including a concussion, a cut to his right eyebrow, a swollen right eye, swelling and contusions on his right temple and bruises on his neck and ear. He also lost a tooth. Justice Jenkins characterized the beating as a “slugfest”. The judge said it was unnecessary, totally unacceptable “high-handed, malicious, arbitrary and reprehensible.” Turnau was much larger than Reimer and described at the trial as “huge.” The judge noted it took Reimer at least four weeks before he could play rugby again, adding that the defendants in the case are most fortunate that

Reimer did not suffer more serious injuries considering the extent of the assault. “I find that Mr. Turnau and others among the Rooster’s security personnel on the night in question used force far in excess of what would have been required or reasonable to subdue Mr. Reimer and they deliberately set out to inflict serious harm on Mr. Reimer,” the judge said. Turnau was charged with assault causing bodily harm, but acquitted at trial. Reimer then sued Rooster’s and its staff in civil court. Justice Jenkins awarded Reimer $3,000 in aggravated damages and $20,000 in punitive damages. • Read the full ruling online at mapleridgenews.com.

T

he job of attracting international students to the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district is getting tougher as North American school boards compete for this lucrative funding source. The potential is immense. International students brought more than $7.7 billion to Canada in 2010, according to a study by the Canadian Bureau for International Education. This includes students’ tuition, accommodation and discretionary spending. That value is greater than the country’s coniferous lumber exports, or its revenue from coals. It generated more than $445 million in government revenue, and it created 81,000 jobs. The global demand for international education in Canada is growing, and it is the seventh most popular host country in the world. The nations

that send the most students abroad for education are China, India, Korea, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. More than half of Canada’s international students come from these countries. The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district works hard to be one of those places which these students consider. When the board’s international education manager, Michael Polan, took his position some 20 years ago, there were only five school districts in the province actively promoting themselves as destinations for students studying abroad. “Now every single school board is doing this,” he said. When he started, there were 71 international students in the district, and the best year was 650. American schools are working harder to attract international students. During the George W. Bush presidency, with a high premium placed on homeland security, foreign students found it difficult to get into the U.S. But that has changed. There are now 780,000

foreign students attending in the U.S., including 250,000 from China. By comparison, Canada has about 265,000 international students – more than half of them are studying at the post secondary level. The U.S. enjoys better “brand recognition” than Canada when it comes to attracting these customers. Asian students can name about 10 U.S. cities, whereas they can only recall about two from Canada. “And, unfortunately, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are not one of them,” said Polan. What’s more, the Canadian government has recently adopted more stringent requirements for foreign students, putting more red tape before a home stay here. For example, Polan is no longer allowed to assist foreign students with their Visa applications. “Now I’m a criminal if I help them out.” Still, he said, the local district, with 564 international students this year, compares favourably to others in B.C. Polan’s department es-

timates that international students and their visiting families contributed approximately $13.3 million to the local economy last year. That includes $6 million in student fees, $4 million in home stay fees ($800 per month), $900,000 for parent visits, $800,000 in spending money, $300,000 for field trip activities and almost $400,000 for medical costs. “The report does not rely on a multiplier effect, but on the approximate amount of money that foreign students collectively bring into Canada to pay for their education and support themselves while they study here for one academic year,” noted the report’s summary. Polan said the strong points of the local experience are the teachers, and the positive environment in the home stays. “And those are the most important factors for students staying here,” he said. If they enjoy their stays in Canada, so too do host families like having them, as attested to by the tearful partings of students and their host families,

noted Polan. Foreign students have little solid data on which to base their decision where to attend school abroad. He said overseas families will use the much-maligned Fraser Institute ranking of schools to decide where to attend. Polan’s team helps to give them a preview of the community through summer programs. Each year between 1,200 and 1,500 students are taken canoeing on Alouette Lake, zip-lining at Wildplay, given English programs, and soon about 30 per cent of them are signing up for a stay in the district. The academies and programs offered here attract students, such as the International Baccalaureate program at Garibaldi secondary, self-directed learning model at Thomas Haney secondary, hockey academy at Pitt Meadows secondary. “Please know, you enrich our school system by being here,” school board chairman Mike Murray told the students.

Mountie wins appeal for his job Court orders RCMP brass to reinstate Const. MacLeod by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter

A Maple Ridge Mountie accused of sexual misconduct will be returning to work following an five-year battle with RCMP. Const. James Douglas MacLeod, who worked in the Lower Mainland with a RCMP federal unit, was suspended with pay in December

2005, when the allegations first surfaced. A woman alleged she was drugged and sexually assaulted by MacLeod and a local realtor at a Super Bowl party. MacLeod and the realtor were eventually charged with sexual assault, but those charges were stayed in 2007 due to a lack of evidence. In 2008, a RCMP adjudication board determined MacLeod’s conduct was disgraceful and ordered him to resign or be dismissed within 14 days. He appealed to the RCMP’s external review

committee, an independent civilian body, and the board’s findings were overturned. The committee advised RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson to overturn the adjudication board’s finding and reinstate the Mountie. Paulson refused and upheld the original ruling for MacLeod to resign or be fired. MacLeod complied by resigning, but appealed to the Federal Court for a judicial review.

She found the commissioner failed to consider the evidence suggesting that the complainant also exhibited consent to the sexual activity through her conduct. “The complainant’s behaviour in this regard seems to support the applicant’s position that he had an honest, but mistaken belief in consent,” Tremblay-Lamer wrote in the decision.

The Chamber of Commerce is reminding the City of Pitt Meadows to hold the line on business taxes as staff begin crafting a budget for 2014. Chamber president Terry Becker delivered the message at a committee meeting Tuesday as a reminder to council on the heels of a petition from city residents calling for no tax increase in 2014. Many businesses are just coming out of the 2008, 2009, 2010 recession, said Becker. “We are not looking to be getting an increase either.” Pitt Meadows is set to present two tax scenarios for 2014 – one with no increases to property taxes and a second which estimates the city will need to raise its municipal tax rate by 3.3 per cent just to maintain services next year. A one-per-cent tax increase in 2014 would generate $156,000 in revenue for the city. The proposed preliminary tax increase of 3.3 per cent would mean an additional $56 to the average homeowner in Pitt Meadows, with a property valued at $369,046. The proposed 2014 budget in-

By 2027, commercial taxes should account for 53 per cent of the city’s tax windfall. “That’s our goal as long as we stay on course,” Walters said.

cludes $445,000 in reductions. Businesses in Pitt Meadows, however, pay almost three and a half times more in taxes than homeowners. “I will say it’s not unique to Pitt Meadows,” said Becker. “Out of a 120 municipalities in B.C., it can be as high as 6:1 to as low as 1:1.” Using her husband’s law firm as an example, Becker noted they’ve seen taxes increase by $2,000 per month from 2012 to 2013. “Each tenant saw an increase depending on their square footage,” she added. Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters reassured businesses that there are no plans to hike their taxes as a way to take pressure off homeowners. “Our goal is not to increase business taxes or the ratio at this point in time,” said Walters. “We certainly don’t want to discourage business, If anything, we want to attract more business to our community to help balance our taxes.” Pitt Meadows is focused on attracting more business by developing more commercial and industrial land. A study done for the city by G.P. Rollo and Associates earlier the year estimated mixed employment and commercial tax revenue will surpass residential revenues by 2022 if the South Harris Cardiff Farm and North Lougheed properties are developed.

Yennadon helping feed Hungry Spirits by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

Handing out lunches on the Downtown East-

side made an impression on a Maple Ridge sixth grader. Chantal Bronswyk admits she had some trepidation at first when her

family got involved with the charity Feeding Hungry Spirits last December. It took the volunteers to an area stricken by poverty, drug use, the

sex trade and desperate people. “They were kind of scary. I didn’t quite feel safe at first, but eventually I got used to it,” she

said. And the reaction from the people on the streets made her job easier. She would hand them a paper lunch bag, decorated with Christmas themes by students. Inside was a sandwich, a bag of chips and some fruit or vegetables. A family friend had knitted a lot of toques and mittens, so she had them to hand out, as well. “Their faces lit up – they were happy and smiling,” said Chantal. “It made me feel warm inside.” It was a day that made her more aware of the plight of people, many drug addicted and mentally ill, who are forced to live on the streets. “I just think they really need help. You never know what’s going to happen to them.” Her mother, Amanda, got involved in the charity, which was started by longtime friend Lisa Gregory. The Surrey mom was packing a school lunch into her son’s backpack, when a foul pong made her inspect the pack further. Inside she found four old and rotting lunches inside. Like most mom’s, she lectured the boy. Un-

Feeding Hungry Spirits inspires families to get involved – like the Bronswyks. Last year, the fourth for the event, there were 1,800 lunches made, and they were handed out along with dry socks, toques, mittens and other items. “But we ran out of time to decorate the lunch bags,” said Amanda. “And that’s the personal touch.” Chantal told her teacher at Yennadon elementary, Shawna Loutet, about the experience. Her class, and every one in the school, has this December helped decorate some 560 bags that

will be used for the charity. Loutet said the students’ contribution ties in well with the school’s ethos: “Think globally, act locally.” “It’s a really great opportunity for the kids to give back to their community,” said the teacher. Other people are baking, knitting or arranging donations. “We’re not all millionaires. Some people can’t afford to give money, but they can give their time,” said Amanda. “It’s a wonderful experience, and it’s important to teach our kids to give. To see that it doesn’t take a lot to help someone, and that they’re so happy and thankful.” The campaign has grown to some 400 volunteers this year. “Every year, we do more than we thought we would.”

Overall, only 16 percent of British Columbians believe that the province’s roads are “not too safe” or “not safe at all” for motorists, while four-in-five (82 percent) consider them “very safe” or “moderately safe.” This is the first of four surveys Insights West will conduct during the next year in partnership with Black Press.

Mercedes CLA 250 stylish price buster By Zack Spencer

T

he Mercedes CLA 250 is here and it is a cause for celebration. This stylish compact car is powerful, filled with all kinds of features and starts at $33,900. What this means for the entire car market is a trend towards more car for less money. If Mercedes Benz can sell such a competent car for so little, the pressure will be on non-premium brands to sharpen their pencil, add more features, and revise their prices lower. Mercedes already has an affordable hatchback with the B250, which arrived about a year ago and is the basis for this CLA. Both of these cars open Mercedes Benz to a new market of buyers who might have been thinking about buying a non-premium brand, but now realize a CLA is within reach. This, along with Mercedes strong resale value, will help to keep lease rates low, amplifying the value this car offers. Looks Mercedes helped create the coupe four-door sedan several years ago with the CLS, which is based on the E-Class. By dropping the roof, raking the front and rear windows and adding a more aggressive front end, Mercedes produced an eye-catching sedan that looks classy and aggressive at the same time. Mercedes has taken this formula and applied it to the B-Class platform to produce this coupe-like sedan. The base model comes with 17-inch wheels, but the sport package is great value at $1,600, which adds 18-inch AMG wheels and extra AMG exterior trim pieces. The AMG look is more aggressive, providing a bigger front air intake and chin spoiler to complete the look. The side windows are slim as is the back window for limited outward visibility, not so much for the driver, but the rear seat passengers, especially kids.

Inside One trend I’m not sure I like is placing a screen in the centre of the dash, like putting an iPad Mini permanently in the middle of the dash. It doesn’t look particularly polished, almost like an afterthought. Audi’s new A3 sedan, arriving in March, has the ability to lower the screen, which I think is a better approach. The dash has rotary air vents that look similar to the high-end Mercedes SLS supercar. The front of the dash, in my test unit, was covered in an aluminum panel and surrounded by soft touch materials. The radio and heat controls are similar to other Mercedes products, so even though this CLA isn’t uber-expensive, it looks like a proper Mercedes Benz. The premium package is a must because it includes a huge panoramic sunroof, backup camera, automatic climate control and heated front seats – all of this for $2,800. This is a small car. The roof feels very low and back seat passenger’s needs to be children or shorter adults. Rear seat outward visibility is limited and legroom is also at a premium. The better bet for families is the less expensive B-Class ($30,500) because it offers a bigger back seat and hatchback storage. Drive The launch event for this new CLA was held in the Washington, D.C. area, leaving historic Georgetown and heading towards Maryland’s ports and navel academy. This provided some excellent stop-and-go traffic opportunities in Washington’s morning rush hour, then getting to stretch the new CLA’s legs on fabulous Interstate highways. The power plant is a direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a healthy 208hp. The power goes through a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission to the front wheels. The more expensive and powerful 355hp CLA 45 AMG has an all-wheel drive system as standard equipment, but the base CLA 250 will get this important option

ICBC Safety tip During the months of November and December there is an 86 per cent increase in crashes where a pedestrian is injured compared to July and August. Always be on the lookout for pedestrians – especially in dark, wet weather when visibility is limited, at intersections and near transit stops.

sometime in 2014. Power is fantastic, especially if the transmission is placed in the sportier mode. This car cruises effortlessly at highway speeds and passes with ease. Even though it uses the same engine as the B-Class, this car felt more planted and sophisticated, maybe due to the lower centre of gravity and a trunk, which will muffle road noise compared to the hatchback. All CLA models come with a Collision Prevention Assist feature that alerts the

driver to the possibility of an impending collision. Verdict We are heading into a wonderful period of lower priced cars, or vehicle fitted with more standard features. This new CLA 250 is a perfect example of this. Other new entries include the latest A3 that arrives in March and starts at $31,100, then the new BMW 1 Series will arrive in about a year. For the price of a wellequipped non-premium

brand Canadians can now get a premium German sedan for about the same price. If I were to get this CLA 250, I would include the premium package to get the sunroof, backup camera and heated seats. The Sport package is also tempting for the bigger wheels. This would bring the price up to $38,300. Not cheap, but you do a get a lot of car and features for this price.

The new CLA 250 is a stylish, powerful compact car filled with all kinds of features.

Dodge RAM revamped wheelbases, plus a huge selection of stand-alone options. Another important 2010

change was the re-introduction of the renowned Cummings Diesel engine option. The addition of particulate scrubbing emission equipment had made the big in-line turbo diesel legal once again in both the U.S. and Canada. This engine offers phenomenal pulling power in addition to fuel-economy and a longer driving range benefits. The 2010 RAM HD also joined GM and Ford in offering an integrated trailer hitch and a trailer brake controller. A nice added feature is that the brake action appears on the instrument panel as a bar graph. This makes it easier for a driver to monitor and adjust controller settings. The 2010’s towing and hauling capability numbers are also up and rated to pull up to 7,983 kg (17,600 lb) and carry 2,336 kg (5,150 lb) of payload, depending on how it’s equipped. The front axle load carrying ability of 4WD models had also been increased to 2,495 kg (5,500 lb), which meant you could attach an even bigger snowplow. The standard engine is a 5.7-litre Hemi V8 that can supply 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The optional 6.7-litre Cummins inline six-cylinder turbo diesel can supply 350 horsepower and a whopping 650 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated with either a six-speed manual (with an ultra-low first gear) or six-speed automatic, with a feature that allows the driver to manually limit its highest gear and a tow/haul mode. Other new features available on RAM HD include an electric shift-on-the-fly 4×4 transfer case, a back-up camera that makes trailer hook-ups easier and a monitor that provides a variety of vehicle information. The cab rides on a new C-pillar positioned hydraulic body mounts and there were suspension upgrades plus larger front axle U-joints. Changes for 2011 were minimal, but did include a tire pressure monitoring system and the LaRAMie trim got standard trailer brake control. In 2012, the HD got a sixspeed automatic transmission and a RAMBox storage system was expanded to the 6-foot-4 bed. The base engine’s towing capability was also increased by 2,000 lbs, thanks to a new 4.10 ratio rear end. Big, brash and brawny, the revamped heavy-duty (Dodge) RAM 2500/3500 was reunited with a cleaner, yet more powerful, Cummings Diesel – a match made in truck heaven.

Alexandra car shops for herself for once By Alexandra Straub

T

he following three questions are probably what I’m asked most often when someone finds out about my line of work. • What is my favourite car? • What car would I buy if I had an unlimited amount of money? • Do you watch Top Gear? I can’t really say what my favourite car is because there are many I love. Whether it’s a subcompact (Fiat 500 Turbo) to a supercar (Bentley Continental GT Speed Coupe), there are just so many good ones to choose from. Let’s skip to the third question. Yes, I watch Top Gear and am thoroughly entertained by it. Any car lover would be. And who wouldn’t fall in love with the British accent? Addressing the second question: What car would I buy if I had an unlimited budget? At this point in my life, that’s

nice to drive. The Ford Explorer Sport was not diesel, but also a strong contender, although the fuel economy wasn’t as stellar as we had hoped. We had spent the better part of a road trip in an Acura MDX in 2013, but wanted to wait until 2014 for the all-new version to come out. After taking that for a spin, that was Top 3 on the list. We also fancied the Volvo XC90 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel. With all these great options, it was hard to narrow it down. But there was one that we had still not looked at. That was the 2014 VW Touareg TDI. It wasn’t hard to fall in love with it. As a VW owner, it’s something I should have thought about right away. Regardless, testing it out fit everything we were looking for. The Touareg was within our price range, it had a generous cargo capacity, all-wheel drive (for our various trips up the mountain), and best of all, a diesel engine. I’m a huge supporter of alternatives to gas-powered vehicles, whether that’s diesel, electric or hybrids. It only

not the case. I have yet to win the lottery. But I can refine the question to, if I had to buy a vehicle for my family, what would it be? Currently, we’re the owners of a 2001 VW Cabrio. We imported it from Southern California and have put quite a few kilometres on it. But, we needed something that was bigger, had

the Mercedes-Benz dealership. The ML350 Bluetec was in a new generation and something we were interested in. However, with the options we wanted and a three-month wait time, the price was out of our range and the wait was too long. Then we looked into the Mazda CX-9. Granted, it’s not a diesel, but a classy car and one that’s

more trunk space, was preferably a diesel and could make it through the snow. So, the hunt began, in December of 2012. The better half and I went looking for an SUV. It didn’t matter if it had five or seven seats. We preferred a diesel, but were not excluding gasoline options. The first place we went to was

seemed fitting to welcome this type of beautiful machine into our home. Upon recommendation from a colleague, we went to Gold Key VW in Langley, where our sales rep, John Nielsen, was fabulous. Upon entry into the dealership, we knew exactly what we wanted. He joked with us that we were making his job too easy. We said we can make it difficult if he wanted. We didn’t. The whole process was anything but painful. In fact, it was pleasant. It seemed as though the other clients of the dealership were also experiencing the same thing. And from what I’ve heard from readers who have emailed me about the car-buying process, it is becoming more enjoyable for many people. I’m happy to hear that. With our new addition to the family and smiles on everyone’s faces, we couldn’t be happier. We’ve also driven almost 2,000 kilometres in the first two weeks of having the Touareg TDI at home and have only filled the tank twice. Even better. alexandra.straub@driveway.bc.ca

Getting into the holiday spirit at Portrait’s Silver Ridge By Kerry Vital

On Monday Dec. 16, the homeowners at Portrait Homes’ Silver Ridge community will demonstrate their Christmas spirit with a decorating contest. “This is our fourth annual display contest,” says Robert Grimm, principal at Portrait Homes. “We started the event to

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

encourage homeowners to get into the Christmas spirit.” Silver Ridge is located in Maple Ridge, and among the judges will be Mayor Ernie Daykin. He will be joined by members of the Portrait Homes management team, and prizes from local merchants, including Chameleon Cafe, Golden Ears Cheeseworks and the Maple Ridge Art Gallery, will be handed out to the first, second and third prize winners. “What triggered us to start this event was the effort some of our homeowners went through in decorating their homes and we thought, wouldn’t it be great to get more people into the

Christmas spirit?” asks Grimm. Homeowners are encouraged to use lights and other decor items to make a festive display. Decorating has already started, and anticipation is building as the 16th nears. Silver Ridge is a 105-acre master-planned community. The latest phase is Hampstead, a collection of four- and fivebedroom single-family homes. Portrait Homes has been the recipient of many awards for Silver Ridge, including 27 Gold Georgies. Among the awards is Best Residential Development in B.C. and Best Residential Community in Canada. Portrait itself has been the winner of the Customer Choice Awards for 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011, and Best Single Family Home Builder in British Columbia for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011. For more information about Hampstead at Silver Ridge, visit www.portraithomes.ca/communities/hampstead or call 604466-9278.

Among the gorgeous features you’ll find at G3 are stainless-steel appliances, laminate hardwood flooring and quartz countertops. The eating bar, above, is convenient for entertaining or a quick bite to eat, while the living areas, above right, and bedrooms, below right, are spacious and inviting.

Everything is in the details in homes at G3 in Surrey By Kerry Vital

Three is a lucky number at G3, an exciting condominium development in Surrey’s Guildford neighbourhood that features three buildings with a huge variety of floorplans that will definitely suit the needs of all discerning buyers. “The quality here is excellent,” says sales manager Margaret Bird. “It’s been especially appealing to first-time buyers.”

Announcing the RENO ME!

G3 offers studio to two-bedroom homes, with several floorplans available. One of the most impressive things about the development is the beautiful views from some of the homes. “From the north-facing homes you can see the (North Shore) mountains,” says Bird. “From the east-facing homes, you can see Mount Baker and that area. It’s gorgeous.” Some of the other beautiful features of the homes at G3 include stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops and an eating bar; a convenient touch for those on-thego or who enjoy entertaining. Soft-closing cabinetry with brushed nickel hardware is perfectly lit by the ceiling mounted track lighting and pendant lights. Laminate hardwood flooring is featured throughout the living areas, with lush carpeting in the bedrooms and imported

porcelain tile in the kitchen, entry and bathrooms. The bathrooms are elegant and luxurious, with a deep soaker tub, semi-frameless glass shower and chic wall-mounted vanity light. Homeowners can still choose between two designer colour schemes, Sterling and Onyx, and will enjoy the nine-foot ceilings (higher on the top floor) and convenient frontloading washer and dryers that come with every home. Oversized storage and parking is also included. “It’s a beautiful package,” Bird says. Residents will also have access to the G3 residents lounge, which will include a gym, fireside lounge and a guest suite, among other things. G3’s location is one of the top draws for buyers. “You can walk to everything,” says Bird.

CONGRATULATIONS! Congratulations Cong gra to Grand win w Prize winner, Melissa Tolsma!

“There’s easy access” to the rest of the Lower Mainland via the Port Mann Bridge, along with the convenience of living near Guildford Town Centre and the Guildford Recreation Centre and Library. You’re also within walking distance of parks, schools, shopping and restaurants. “Location is key,” says Bird. “These are the only new condos in the Guildford area. We’ve seen a huge draw from Fraser Heights with parents wanting their kids to live nearby. You’re within walking distance to so much.” Available homes at G3 start at $149,900 for a studio, $169,900 for a one-bedroom and $219,900 for a two-bedroom.

The most common bulbs of Yule

S

By Mike Lascelle

ome of us are under the impression that once all the tulips and daffodils are tucked away in the garden that bulb season has come to an end.

Truth be told, there probably isn’t a time of the year when bulbs of one sort or another aren’t available for planting, and Christmas is no exception. While there are probably a few forced bulbs (crocus, grape hyacinths) still available, the three most common choices for December tend to be prepared hyacinths, paperwhites and the always impressive amaryllis. Prepared hyacinths are those given a 10-12 week cold period (mimicking winter dormancy) so that you can basically plant them indoors and watch them grow. You don’t necessarily need to use soil as the highly attractive purple-skinned bulbs (except for whites) will gladly root into trays of glass beads or ornamental rocks. Clear or tinted hyacinth glasses are also available – these are essentially a mini-vase made to hold a solitary bulb just above the water you pour into the reservoir below. The trick is to start these in a dark cool room and keep the water level just at the root zone (don’t immerse the bulbs). Once you get several inches of green growth, they are ready to move out for display. You should handle the bulbs with gloves (many people are allergic to them) and never plant more than three together as they are potently fragrant, particularly indoors. Paperwhites are a tender (Zone 8 hardy) member of the daffodil family (narcissus papyraceus) native to the Mediterranean and listed as Div. 8 or tazetta daffodils. These do not require a cold period and will generally bloom four to six weeks after planting, depending on room temperature. Some gardeners plant them in the bottom of tall floral buckets, the reason being that paperwhites are often floppy and this configuration holds the stems together for a

nice bouquet display. Your only other option is to use a hidden stake and tie the flowers stems together with a little raffia. They have a wonderful fragrance and make nice Christmas gifts that you can grow yourself for friends and family. Despite the common name, paperwhites come in both white and yellow – with the most commonly available cultivars being ‘ziva’ (1618” high, pure white with a musky fragrance) and ‘grand soleil d’or’ (12-14” high, yellow petals with an orange cup, sweet fragrance). Amaryllis is the largest Christmas bulb with most of the hybrids derived from South American species of hippeastrum. These plants

have huge blooms with little or no fragrance (except for ‘sweet Lillian’ and ‘jewel’), which is important for families dealing with allergies. They also have an impressive colour range from white, salmon, deep red, peach, pink, yellow, orange and green, with many bicolor blooms. There are also a few different forms including the elegant butterfly amaryllis (hippeastrum papilio) and the thin-petaled cybister types (hippeastrum cybister). Some people start the planting process by soaking the dried roots before potting in lightly moistened indoor soil. Your container should be about seven inches deep and an inch wider than the bulb on each side, with unglazed clay

or terra cotta being ideal for their breathing qualities and counterweight. Make sure the top one third of the bulb protrudes after planting and water sparingly until it enacts growth. At this point you can liquid fertilize every 10 days, with the blooms showing up about 6-8 weeks after planting. Mike Lascelle is a local nursery manager and gardening author (hebe_acer@hotmail.com).

Hunger Games a boost to archery by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

T

he Hunger Games movies are turning young people on to a new, old sport.

Archery is enjoying an upswing across North America, and the Maple Ridge club has seen a surge in numbers. In the gym at the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre on archery night, one whole side of the gym is lined with people drawing bows, the other with targets. Some arrows go straight to the heart of the bullseyes, and some hit the Kevlar curtain behind the targets. The club now has 77 members, which is about double the total in recent years, and there’s a waiting list for more to join. The club recently offered an introduction to archery shooting. That made accommodation for 20 people, but 47 signed up. “We had mostly adults. Now we have about half adults and

half kids,” said coach Laura Curwen. “The Hunger Games and Brave – those movies have really increased our numbers. Catching Fire, the second movie in the Hunger Games trilogy, opened in Canadian theatres on Friday. “It renews the interest, and it’s a great family sport,” Curwen added. Junior archers start indoors in October, and by the time the outdoor season begins in the fall, they are ready for the challenges of longer distances, wind and rain. Nine years old is the youngest they will take an archer. There is some club equipment for people to try the sport, but eventually club members get their own bow, arrows and accessories. It can range from $400 to $1,000, but Curwen notes that a lot of the gear will last a lifetime. There are many types from simple longbows to recurves and compound bows that have pulleys top and bottom, and long rods out the front as stabilizers. Some members are hunters, some are recreational shooters, and others are competitors. From the latter group, Mariessa Pinto is hop-

ing to qualify for the 2015 Canada Winter Games. She’s 15, and a year ago got serious about competitive archery. Pinto enjoys the intense focus of the sport – those Zen moments where she will put everything out of her mind except for the shot. And what has her hooked is those perfect shots – like when a baseball player smacks

a ball on the sweet spot of the bat, or a golfer drives a shot that jumps off the club and soars. “For me, my good shot is motivation, and you feel it as soon as you let it go,” she said. “I want every shot to be like that. And the more I feel it, I feel like I’m getting somewhere. “It’s nice seeing your arrows in the gold all the time, too.” She shoots two or three nights a week, and

does a 10-week conditioning program to get in shape for archery. “It gets hard. A lot of people give up,” she said. Pinto likes that her sport is suddenly ‘cool.’ When she enters an event, there is always lots of competition. “The movies have had a huge impact,” she said. And she gets it: “I’ve been a Hunger Games fan since the first book came out.” The Maple Ridge

Club has a history dating back to 1955, and a member, the late Marge Saunders, helped to develop the Junior Olympian Program that is used today. With it, archers aim to reach rising scoring goals, and advance to the next level. They get a score for each ring they hit on a target, and the perfect score is 300 – which is 30 arrows into a small ring, just slightly larger than a loonie.

Murray Peacock is one of the club’s best shooters. Inspired by a brother who would make his own bows for hunting, he joined the club in 1981. His best result was a second-place finish at the Championship of the Americas in 2008, where he competed against world record holders. “You have to work at it – there’s no such thing as a natural,” he said.

rink defeated the Dutchie Kleisterlee rink to clinch first place in the final game of the Fall curling session. In a closely fought battle for first place with two other teams, the victory allowed Ferguson to edge out Peter Koehler and Angelo Masaro. Koehler’s rink of Roger Fast, Bob Asher and Tom Manin made a run for top spot, but fell short of Ferguson by a single point. Meanwhile Masaro’s team, a leader for much of the season, faltered down the stretch to finish in third spot. Haney Master’s now takes a Christmas break.

“There’s no instant gratification like with a video game. Striving for perfection – that’s what it is.” He said a good archer is calm, focussed and dedicated. Strength is also necessary. Shooting 60 arrows in practice is a good arm workout. Archery clubs from Toronto to Calgary are also reporting big jumps in membership. “We have seen an increase in memberships country-wide,” said Scott Ogilvie, the executive director of Archery Canada, but added the exact impact is not yet known. His is a comparatively small sports organization, with approximately 7,500 members, and he said clubs struggle to get everyone who wants to shoot in front of a target. “It’s challenging to keep up with the demand in archery,” he said. “It’s a good thing for archery in Canada, and down the road it bodes well for national championships, and how Canada performs at the international level.” In the U.S., archery’s membership has doubled in two years. Denis Parker, the CEO of USA Archery, and a three-time Olympian, sees it as a positive. “But what is so amazing with Hunger Games is that you have this character, Katniss, who is confident and beautiful, and the way she uses the bow is an extension of that. That is what really resonates and makes people want to try this,” she said in an interview earlier this year. It’s not the first time movie fans have been inspired to take up a sport. The Harry Potter books and movies resulted in the formation of the International Quidditch Association. Lacking flying brooms, however, maybe some of the players around the world are taking up the bow.

f you are considering buying a fitness or health gift this holiday season for a loved one, there are a number of issues to be aware of. First, giving an unsolicited fitness or weight loss gift might make the receiver feel bad. Make sure they have a product like this on their list, otherwise it could make for an unpleasant holiday. Second, whatever the gift, it would be great if the health product actually worked and does what it claims to do. And finally, even if the product is effective, the loved one has to use it to get a benefit. Let’s start with a list of potential gift ideas and find out which ones are effective and

which are not. I won’t list brand names, but instead discuss categories of device. There are many products being sold that are fantastic for getting in shape. Some are expensive (treadmills, stairclimbers) and other are less so (dumbells, sandbells, tubing), but the receiver of the gift has to be motivated to use it and has to stick with it for a long time. If you are wondering if, for example, a rowing machine is better than a treadmill, these machines all can give a great workout, if used properly, and any difference in health benefits between them is negligible. There are also a number of products being sold which have no beneficial effect at all. Magnets are usually sold as wrist-bands, blankets, mattresses and creams that claim to improve blood flow, increase energy level and any number of other things (including deplorably, curing cancer).

Credible studies in the past have shown no benefit or changes to the body by using magnets. The magnetic field of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machines are many, many times stronger than the small magnets in these products, but do not have any of these purported benefits on the body. If they did dramatically affect the body, MRIs would not be used as a diagnostic tool. The same goes for other similar products like volcanic rock worn as a pendant or bracelet – no demonstrated effect at all. The test that midway salesmen use to supposedly ‘prove’ that these objects improve your balance is a simple, well-known parlour trick that anyone can learn to dupe an unsuspecting person into believing it works. Devices for producing ‘ionized’ water are supposed to improve a whole variety of health
