Smoking bylaw defeated One from 1997 back in place, but superceded by B.C. rules by Ph i l M e lnych uk staff reporter
Maple Ridge council has butted out a no-smoking bylaw that would have extended the no-smoking distances from doors and windows to 7.5 metres. “Personally, I would question us defeating a bylaw on one or two items that potentially have a common good,” Mayor Ernie Daykin said Tuesday. “I’m embarrassed to go back to Fraser Health,” Coun. Cheryl Ashlie added Thursday. “It is a big issue with Fraser Health and all the work that we’re trying to do. To now do an about-face on a progressive bylaw, just doesn’t add up.” Council has been discussing the smoking regulation bylaw since last year.

Schools writing off penmanship Modern communication bumping cursive writing by Ne i l Co r b e t t staff reporter
Technology has replaced cursive writing in many classrooms.
The writing is on the wall – longhand, or cursive writing, is increasingly considered a dying art, and may be dropped from the B.C. school curriculum. The Education Ministry is conducting a curriculum review, deciding what “core competencies”

students should be developing. Cursive writing, which is taught to students in Grade 3, has been taken out of the curriculum in draft documents. The value of cursive writing is being debated across North America. Many U.S. school districts are leaving it non-mandatory, but a teacher can still choose to keep it on classroom agendas. In Ontario, public schools are spending less time on cursive writing, but the Toronto Catholic School Board recently passed a motion to bring it back.

It is undoubtedly less often used and less relevant to today’s student, while keyboarding and electronic communication takes over. But should it be dropped? “From my perspective, I think cursive writing is a valuable thing,” said Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school board trustee Ken Clarkson. “But I have to put myself in the place of kids today – how often do they use it?” Clarkson learned to write with an inkwell and a dip pen, or quill, at a time when everyone was using ball point pens. Soon the inkwells
disappeared. He predicts the change will be most bothersome to the older generation. “The pushback will come from older people – grandparents,” he predicts. “People always react to change in a variety of ways, and there’s a sense of loss.” Clarkson recalls teaching writing to students as an elementary school teacher. Generally, students enjoy or at least don’t dislike learning formal writing, and it helps them learn some fine motor skills. See Cursive, p5

ENGAGED: Earth Hour March 29, 2014 at 8:30 pm What Will You Do To Make A Difference? Earth Hour is the largest climate change movement for the planet in human history, spanning 7,000 cities, 152 countries with a digital reach of 200 million. Earth Hour is much, much more than a symbolic action of switching off lights for an hour; it’s a continuous movement driving actions, big and small, that are changing the world we live in. As part of Maple Ridge’s commitment to reducing energy consumption and achieving carbon neutrality, we are participating in Earth Hour 2014 by turning off as many lights as possible in our corporate buildings. This year the Earth Hour message urges us to use our power to change a reality. This event demonstrates that we can make a difference by doing something as simple as turning the lights off. The 2013 Earth Hour results showed that Maple Ridge saw a drop of 2.5% in the community electricity load, a 39% improvement over the 2012 results.
Tuesday, April 8 6:00 pm, Public Hearing - Council Chambers We encourage all residents to join millions of Canadians and participate in this worldwide event. Turn off your lights for one hour, Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 8:30 pm and together let’s reduce energy consumption. There’s great information on the overall campaign at www.earthhour.org along with links to some very inspiring videos.
The Hammond Area Planning Process has launched and there’s a new landing page on the Maple Ridge website called #MyHammond. In addition, we’ve created a special email address email@example.com, which you can use if you have questions, comments and contributions to make to this exciting work.

ENGAGED: #MyHammond Photo Project Capture Hammond Neighbourhood in Words and Photos
The first phase of the project is called the Hammond Community Character Photo Project and seeks to connect citizens with the project and to complete important background work in exploring the history and character of the neighbourhood. To achieve this goal we are asking you to take photos that capture the character of the neighbourhood and then place these pictures on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #MyHammond, so that everyone will be able to search for them. In addition to the photos and hashtags, we are asking citizens to provide a brief one or two word description of what the photo symbolizes. Facebook photos are the easiest to search, but if you prefer Instagram, make sure that you follow the Maple Ridge Instagram page ‘yourmapleridge’ so we can see your masterpieces. You also have the option of emailing your photos and brief descriptions to the special project email.
In addition to Mark, we have Chris Zabek speaking about our agricultural land base. Chris will outline the results of an agricultural survey, which sent researchers out to record actual land uses throughout the community and across the region. We are also inviting community groups to display and share your local initiatives/projects related to Food Security and/or Sustainability with those in attendance. Please contact Dave Speers for further details via email email@example.com or by calling 604-467-7433 Ext #1.

INFORMED: Construction Season Begins Maple Ridge recently launched an update to our website and one of the great new tools for citizens is the ‘Notify Me’ feature. At this time of year the weather starts to improve and our Engineering and Operations crews begin their work on maintenance and new construction projects on our road, water, sewer and storm water systems. This means that there are delays and detours on our roads during the construction period. Some projects, like the upcoming installation of streetlights along 122 Avenue will not cause too great a traffic delay. But a project like the installation of the traffic circle at Kanaka Way, which commences in April while the local students are on their break, will have a greater impact. Click on the ‘Notify Me’ icon on the home page and provide either your email address or cell phone number and sign up for the Traffic Alerts so that you will know when our crews or our contractors are out there doing work. By planning an alternate route or scheduling your trips around the work schedule you will save time. Take a few moments to explore the Engineering department page and you will find a list of projects that are underway in the ‘Neighbourhood Improvements’ tab. There’s lots of ways to get the information you need to avoid any construction delays in 2014!

Parents want Montessori expanded even for a Grade 1, go into a classroom with the comparatively “big kids” in Grade 3. She soon found the older students are quite willing and able to show younger ones the ropes. “Watching them in the classroom, I was in awe. The older kids are so caring of these little kids who are in their class.” Now her daughter is in Grade 4, and is the “big buddy” to a “little buddy.” “She loves it. Her little buddy is her favourite little kid.” Brennan said parents would like to see the program expanded as soon as next year. “I can’t see a reason not to. The parents are so for it, and the teachers are for it.” School board chair Mike Murray said no decision has been made, but noted the board is once again facing a budget year that is expected to involve a shortfall in the millions, and can’t afford to take on additional costs.

arents of students learning in the Montessori method in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows School District want their children to have access to the specialized teaching beyond fifth grade.
The Montessori Method requires additional training by teachers, and the board is fortunate enough to have a surplus, as Montessoritrained educators will be ready to return from maternity leave next year. There is also an unused classroom available at Hammond elementary, which houses the district’s Montessori program. The timing is perfect, say parents who want approval from the school board. “It’s a great idea to extend it for as long as we possibly can,” said Jennine Brennan, chair of the Hammond Montessori Parent Advisory Council. The support from parents is virtually unanimous. The PAC conducted a survey that went home to 112 homes. Ninety surveys were returned, and of those 98 per cent want the program expanded. “It was an amazing response,” said Brennan. The only opposition comes from parents who want their kids back into the mainstream school system before they enter high school, she said. Patricia Patrick teaches Grades 1-3 at Hammond – Montessori classes are mixed. As she explains a bit about the program, she sits on the floor with a child who has a big checker board, placing beads inside the squares, learning about multiplication. Another boy is at a table, putting plastic animals of all species onto the appropriate continent on a map: lion on Africa, penguin on Antarctica, and so on. A pair of girls are reading from a page on an iPad, doing a research paper about cheetahs. They, not Patrick, chose to learn about cheetahs. “Because they’re really fast,” little Karley Carruthers explained simply. When they are done, she and Michela Chalmers will read what they have discovered to the class. “That’s what it’s all about – if they’re interested, they learn,” said Patrick. Talia Van De Kerkhof is fitting nobbed cylinders into holes that are the right size for them – an activity from the “sensorial area.” Other kids can do “practical life”
About Montessori Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
(Clockwise) Patricia Patrick, a Montessori teacher at Hammond elementary, helps Shane Mountain with the multiplication checkerboard; Talia Van De Kerkhof works with knobbed cylinders that prepare students’ fingers for better pencil grip and control; Lily Bourque learns about continents and animals. activities, which include dusting shelves and washing chairs. “Maria Montessori was based in real experiences,” explains Patrick. The Kindergarten Montessori teacher at Hammond, Jennifer Williams, is also a mother of two boys in the program. Her oldest, Kaden, is in Grade 3. “He’s thriving here. It’s amazing – he loves to learn,” she said. “He has a big interest in geography, and he’s able to just run with it. He knows almost all of the countries of the world. I tell him, ‘You’re officially smarter than mom.’” Patrick said people around the world pay thousands of dollars to have their child educated in the Montessori method, so having a public education program in Maple Ridge is “amazing.” She has been at the school 11 years, and there has always been talk of expanding the program beyond the fifth grade, as far as Grade 8. “Parents are so keen. They just see their children doing so well,” she said. “Parents have always mentioned it [expansion], but this year there’s a lot of momentum.” As she talks, Karley and Michela come over to ask whether the word “with” is spelled with one “h” or two. Patrick settles the discussion, and they’re back to their cheetahs.
Brennan said parent concerns about students transitioning to “regular” school are needless worries. “They have transitioned very easily in the past,” she said, adding that Montessori promotes time management skills, and makes students responsible for their own learning in a way that is a big benefit at the secondary level. “I really like the choices. If my daughter finds she has a hard time learning one way, she can choose another,” she said. “And, also, I like to have the older kids in the classroom to help.”
She said the mixed-class aspect of the Montessori method is one of her favourite parts. She remembers being a little nervous about having her daughter, Cealan, who was small
Maria Montessori was one of the first women to become a doctor in Italy in the late 1800s. She worked with mentally disabled children at asylums in Rome, developing methods and special materials, letters, beads and puzzles, to educate them. Soon theses children were able to read, write and pass public-school tests. In 1906, she was asked to oversee the education of children with working parents in a low-income district of Rome, and used the methods and materials she developed, combined with her study of psychology. In her first classroom, Montessori watched the children, noting their periods of deep concentration and attention, their repetition of activities, and their sensitivity to order in their environment. She observed that when the children could choose their activity, they showed more interest in practical activities and her teaching materials, rather than toys provided. Her central theory was that children working independently become self-motivated and reach new level of understanding. To her, independence must be the aim of education. The children in her classes gained literacy beyond expectations for their age, and showed self discipline. Because of the success of her students, by 1911 Montessori education had spread to public schools across Italy and Switzerland. The next year Montessori schools were opening around the world, as she toured and lectured. Montessori was three times nominated for a Nobel Prize, and her face is on the 1,000 Lire bill in Italy.

tre,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Supt. Dave Fleugel. While council supports the CSO program, which allows hiring of three peace officers at about 20 per cent less than the cost of regular RCMP officer, a national RCMP review of the community safety officer program will see some changes. “Obviously, we’d love to keep status quo, but that’s just not an option. We’re part of a national organization and I have to respect that.” The top cop in Maple Ridge, though, wants more information before making another pitch to council, although one option is called the community program officer. No decisions have been made by RCMP headquarters, he pointed out. “The CPO looks fairly attractive. It’s a further cost savings than we’re getting now.” While CPOs focus on crime prevention and community policing, without the enforcement option, in contrast to CSOs, who can arrest people because they’re actual peace officers. However, by taking on the job of regular police without being armed, CSOs can put themselves in danger. “There are some risks to our people. I don’t like having our people out
constables.” But arming CSO and giving them broader powers could take away their focus on community policing in the downtown. “Trying to get the best policing for the municipality, that’s the bottom line.” Fleugel said the CPOs used in eastern Canada didn’t wear uniforms. But no decisions have been made. For example, bylaws, Westridge Security and prison guards wear a type of uniform. “That’s something I would like to figure out before we make a decision on a chosen path.” CSOs make about $60,000 yearly, compared to starting rate for regular RCMP officers at $82,000. Fleugel said he’s told council about the changes and the three CSOs have also been told, “No one is losing their job.” The existing CSOs can retrain for whatever program is chosen. At the same time, he wants what’s best for the community. “There’s really a couple of options and it really comes down to what is the objective of what our city (district) wants.” The district like the “enhanced relationship” between businesses and the highlyvisible CSOs in the downtown and the fact that the officers stayed

‘Benefit of cursive writing is also learning to read it’
A word from a
inquiry model, where students focus on their own passion, rather than receiving a formulaic education that is prescribed by curriculum with little freedom to follow the interests of learners.”
Cursive from front
Some take more care than others, with girls generally doing a better job, and boys being told to slow down. “I think most kids kind of liked it.” In future, if a child gets a handwritten Christmas card from Grandma, will they be able to read it? “One of the benefits of learning cursive writing is that you also learn to read it,” said Clarkson. “I remember it being a big mystery to me.” Local District Parent Advisory Council chair Kellie Marquet said she has yet to hear a strong parent reaction to the potential loss of cursive writing instruction. Personally, she would like to see it stay in the school system. “I think kids should be writing,” she said, noting that it will help them with writing their signature – still a necessary skill. “You can’t sign an ‘X’ for your name.” Sarah Nelson, a parent and school board trustee, said she is more concerned with focussing education on the skills students need today. “It is so rare now that I pick up a pen myself, that focussing heavily on a skill they likely won’t use doesn’t seem the best pedagogical choice,” she said. “If the concern is about intelligence and creativity, there are many ways that we can develop these in our children. If I had to choose between a personalized learning opportunity, driven by the student, versus being taught cursive writing, I would opt for personalization every time.” She explained that is the way to spark a child’s natural curiosity, and create life-long learners. “While I see the value in a basic standard for all learners up to a point, I would rather see our teachers have the freedom to teach more from an
“… but I recognize that my children are not growing up in the same world with the same interests. I would rather we let them explore theirs.” Sarah Nelson, school trustee Nelson explained this opinion comes from someone with an interest in genealogy, who reads historical ancestral documents, and has a personal love of calligraphy. “… but I recognize that my children are not growing up in the same world with the same interests. I would rather we let them explore theirs.” The Education Ministry is using the 2013-2014 school year for review and feedback of its draft curriculum for k-9 students. All feedback is welcome.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views
Writing on wall Cursive handwriting could soon disappear from public schools. The provincial government is considering removing that skill from the mandatory teaching curriculum, as many have already done across the U.S. It is seen as unnecessary in today’s ever-more technological world, a roadblock in the course of a teacher’s packed day. More and more elementary students submit computer printouts of essays and assignments. Those just a few years older simply put them in online drop boxes that teachers can access. Those in high school and college take notes on laptops and tablets. Anyway, how many kids write letters to their grandparents anymore? They can communicate instantly on Facebook, or through Skype. Computer and typing skills have replaced penmanship. Cursive writing is becoming obsolete. Since 2010, 45 states have deemed teaching cursive no longer mandatory, and it is being taught less in Ontario. It’s up to teachers if they want to make the time to teach it. Some may argue that since many historical documents are written in cursive, and future students will need to know how to read them. Others will suggest neater hand-writing leads to better grades, in reading and math. And more will ask how, when kids grow up, will they sign cheques? Medical forms? Autographs? Schools still teach block print. Yes, cursive writing is disappearing from the communication landscape. Going forward, keyboard skills will be more important, and even those may one day prove dated. Still, we must fully consider what it is we will be losing when we stop teaching kids cursive writing. It looks nice, but so does calligraphy. Why teach two or three forms of writing when one will do? The writing for cursive is on the wall. – The News

The big picture around Clayton Creek “ ... B.C. Hydro and its contractors will take precautions necessary to avoid detrimental impacts on fish resources and habitat, and avoid or minimize impacts to vegetation and wildlife” – BCH’s environmental protection plan (section 1.6) for the ongoing Ruskin Dam and powerhouse upgrade project Along the Fraser Jack Emberly (2012-2018).
ohn Kelly wonders if B.C. Hydro’s EMP was abandoned on the new Interior-to-Lower Mainland clear cut where it crosses the N. Alouette River and Clayton Creek, a fish bearing tributary named after ARMS Past President, Geoff Clayton. When we visited the site (near Alouette dam) last week, Kelly, a retired BCH consultant, and ARMS executive director Greta Borick-Cunningham were shocked. “They’ve just gone in and wiped everything out,” said Kelly. “Why the hell cut the trees right down to the river. Trees on the first 30 meters from the stream could have been topped instead to protect the water line. They’ve increased the risk of erosion.” In a subsequent letter to BCH, Cunningham noted an impact on fish. “As the area seems to now have very little, if any, tree protection, erosion of fines into the South Alouette River would be very likely in any significant rain. The Allco Fish Hatchery downstream is reliant on fresh,
uestion of the week:
clean water for hatchery use. In the past, large deposits of sediment into the river through rain has plugged the river pumps that provide water to the hatchery.” There’s more problems. “The creek used to be in the forest,” says Kelly. “It might dry up and not run. Water temperature is getting too hot for salmon. It’s an impact that didn’t have to be caused.” I asked Kelly to grade BCH’s job here. “Clayton Creek had the crap kicked of it with the clearing above the road leading to increased water temperatures, the loss of insect productivity, and now with the removal of all vegetation on the floodplain below the road, I’d give BCH an ‘F’ for that area.” Other practices worry Kelly. “Marketable trees have been left lying across Clayton Creek. They’re not supposed to be falling trees across the creek. The impacts occur then, and later when you drag them out, the damage occurs all over again. It should all happen at one time.” Cunningham said trees near Clayton Creek were dropped a year ago, but still hadn’t been salvaged. “Why wouldn’t they clean it up? It’s all merchantable.” Kelly posed the same questions last December when we walked the clear cut in the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, and later on Burke Mountain, in Coquitlam. In both locations, Hydro failed to mitigate line construction that could result in greater erosion, and siltation of streams. Culverts were left plugged, and siltation screens to catch sediment before it entered waterways were missing. We found the same practices here. Strips

of black silt screens about a foot high had been placed along the edge of the road in two places to catch “fines.” But there were no screens on the bank side opposite them. “It represents half the job of reducing erosion and water damage,” said Kelly. As a result, fines had moved down into a ditch running along the roadside, and a culvert placed to lead water safely into Clayton Creek had plugged up. In addition, bales of straw placed within the ditch to act as filters were also plugged. “Clean water will move through the bales,” said Kelly, “but they have to be replaced regularly. They now operate like a dam, and the water moves in the wrong direction.” Potentially, flooding the road. In her letter to BCH, Cunningham says that Clayton, in February, and Ken Stewart (current ARMS president) recently observed “best practices for environmental management had changed,” and “were definitely different than ones used by the earlier parallel Hydro line, where the trees were all left along the river and into the hillside.” Hydro’s environmental manager will visit the site soon, and share his findings with ARMS. Kelly wonders if sound environmental practice is wanting all along the ILM line. “Few members of the public will ever see what’s happening in the back country,” he says. “There’s 250 km of line from Merritt to Coquitlam, and between Hope and Merritt nobody’s up there watching. What’s the big picture really look like?” Jack Emberly is a retired teacher, local author and environmentalist.

‘I have more money in my pocket and am healthier, too’
s I was parking my bike in front of municipal hall recently, an elderly lady was unlocking her bike. As I often do with fellow riders, we had Cycling a little bike talk. She told me she Jackie Chow could no longer drive her car because she didn’t pass her last driving test. So now she bikes to get around. “You wouldn’t believe how much money I get to keep in my pocket,” she said. “And I’m much healthier, too.” I love these types of conversations, which I’d never have if I solely depended on my car to get around. I was at municipal hall to take a look at the draft transportation plan. The district has been working on it for almost three years. A consultant recently did a presentation on it at a council workshop, during which the plan was discussed, as was whether a cycling and pedestrian advisory committee was a good idea to replace the former bicycle advisory committee.
Council generally felt it was better to have a transportation advisory committee than one that focuses on active transportation alone. This committee could deal with all aspects of transportation, including cars, transit, cycling, walking, and, last but most certainly not least, the difficulties that disabled people have when trying to get around. And probably horses, too. I can kind of understand the logic behind the wish of council members to broaden the scope. The problem is that there would be such a wide variety of issues to discuss, and so little time to do it, that a transportation committee could not possibly be effective. Also, when deciding on cycling issues, how much expertise would there be in the room? It was said that “there aren’t enough issues around cycling.” It’s beyond me how anybody on council can make such a statement when Maple Ridge rates as the second worst municipality for cycling in Metro Vancouver, according to a bikeability study done at UBC. As a reminder, I re-sent to council the hundreds of comments and concerns that HUB received from all sorts of cyclists over a period of about a year and a half, a few years ago. I stopped sending more
comments at some point because I thought that council should have gotten the message by now. It’s essential to get on the saddle yourself to understand the issues. It really changes anyone’s perspective. Only Coun. Bob Masse has so far accepted HUB’s invitation to council for a bike ride to experience the bikeability of our town first-hand. If there weren’t any issues around cycling, we’d see a lot more people out there on their bikes, and they wouldn’t be riding on the sidewalks. During the discussion about the advisory committee, some council members said they wanted to see the amounts proposed in the draft transportation plan for spending on cycling ($25 million over the next 20 years) and walking ($5 million) reversed. Just like that. No questions asked. The problem is that these council members seem to feel that cycling and walking are competing for the same dollars. It’s not that simple. Some councillors wish to review the bylaw that allows cycling on the sidewalk. Sure. Our goal should be to get cyclists off the sidewalk. But you can’t just throw us in front of the sharks. One of the numbers that caught my attention when I started reading through the draft transportation
plan was that more than 60 per cent of daily vehicle trips are within Maple Ridge. Usually politicians and planners tend to look at work trips. Actually 35 per cent, which is quite a respectable percentage, of Maple Ridge’s workforce is locally employed and does not need to travel outside the community. But why do trips to school, to shop or to the hairdresser not matter? Many trips presently made by car could potentially be made by bike or walking, which would help us achieve some of our goals, whether it’s reducing greenhouse gas emissions, air and noise pollution, improving people’s health, reducing congestion or improving livability. As long as cycling feels safe, and you have somewhere to park your bike securely. HUB has requested the district, several times, to review the cycling plan for the town core. The chosen routes sometimes do not make sense for cyclists, aren’t convenient and do not always lead to destinations. We see too many cyclists on the sidewalks, and we would like them to feel comfortable and safe on the road. The district is not interested. Especially now that the district is working on an affordable housing strategy, and there is talk about a post-secondary school in Maple
Ridge, we need to ensure that cyclists in our town core feel safe. All affordable housing will be planned in and around the town core. Those who are in need of affordable housing, as well as students who are on a tight budget, benefit hugely from not needing a car. A car on average eats up close to 20 per cent of a household budget. But for low-income households or students, this percentage would be much higher. Walking significantly limits how far you can go, and transit doesn’t always take you where you want to go. Cycling can offer that freedom, but only if it is made safe and convenient. Some numbers from the draft plan that should, in my opinion, motivate us to try much harder to wean ourselves off the car as much as we can. Traffic in west Maple Ridge is expected to increase by 100 per cent over the next 20 years, and by 50 per cent in east Maple Ridge. I hope that in 20 years time, we’ll hear many more people say: “You wouldn’t believe how much money I get to keep in my pocket.” And, I’m much healthier, too.” Jackie Chow is a member of the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows chapter of HUB.

Scammer still working A fraud artist with a good yarn is still scamming Maple Ridge residents. Ridge Meadows RCMP warned the public about the scam March 17, but continue to receive tips about the man. Police said the man has been knocking on front doors and conning them out of small money, usually between $20 and $40. “He claims to work for Coca-Cola, is short of money and requires a locksmith or tow truck as he has locked his keys inside the car,” said Const. Mike Moore. The man tells people he has recently moved to the area and promises to pay people back. Police believe they know who the suspect is, but need victims to come forward and identify themselves. If you have had any dealings with this person, call RCMP. “People may feel embarrassed about being scammed out of their money, however please don’t let that deter you from making a report,” Moore added. • Call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.
Drunk drivers nabbed Ridge Meadows RCMP took 14 drunk drivers off the road Saturday during an enforcement blitz to mark International Impaired Driving Enforcement Day. These checks resulted in five drivers having their driving privileges suspended for 90 days and their vehicles impounded for 30 days. Six other drivers had their licence suspended for three days with vehicles impounded for the same period. Three drivers received 24-hour suspensions due to drugs and alcohol. Ridge Meadows RCMP say officers will continue to conduct random road checks throughout the year to make the roads safer.

Don’t confuse a fraud for a friend Affinity fraud on the rise by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter
The pattern is usually the same. An affable man or woman endears themselves to a community, be it a church or temple and gains the trust of its members. In time, he convinces many to invest in a scheme, but eventually walks away with most of the money. “It’s the kind of fraud that happens to you when you least expect it,” says Brenda Lea, with the B.C. Securities Commission, an independent provincial agency responsible for regulating trading in securities. Called affinity fraud, it’s one of the fastestgrowing types of fraud in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. “It’s a kind of investment fraud in your own community. It happens with people you know and you
trust,” Lea explains. One of the biggest affinity cases in Canada involved the closelyknit Ismaili community, many of whom were duped by one of their own into investing $75 million in a scheme that involved a teeth whitening product. In 2012, former notary public Rashida Samji was accused of masterminding a Ponzi scheme that raised $83-million from 218 people who believed they were investing in a winery. Samji was a “prominent figure in the South Asian community in Vancouver and had attracted numerous investors,” RCMP said in a statement. She has since been charged with 28 counts of fraud and theft. In 2010, the British Columbia Securities Commission handed out its highest penalty ever to Sung Wan (Sean) Kim, an investment dealer who targeted members of a Korean religious community. Kim was ordered to

pay penalties totalling $47-million for stealing money from 36 investors. Lea says affinity fraud often happens in what might be called a “closed community” a small town, a church community, a temple, a mosque. “It can happen anywhere where people come together because they share the beliefs, the same language or culture,” she added. It could be a professional group or target the team mates on your hockey team. It can often take years to execute the scam. In the Samji case, police allege the scheme dated back to 2003. “A good fraudster can be quite patient,” said Lea. “He or she will take their time to build trust because the potential returns can be so great.” As part of Fraud Prevention Month, British Columbia Securities Commission advises people to cast a skeptical eye on all investment proposals and

Spot the scam Promises of high returns with little or no risk (there are no exceptions to the rule that higher returns mean higher risk). Someone (often someone new) in your group starts talking about how to build wealth through special investments only they know about. The person is ‘just like you’— whether through ethnicity, religion, occupation,interests, or other common bond—and uses that connection to foster your trust. Sometimes signs of conspicuous wealth can tip you off. And, any suggestion that you should keep the investment a secret is a sure give-away.

‘Since elected, I’ve not heard complaint’ Smoking from front
The new set of rules would have extended the distance smokers must be from outside doors and windows from three metres, as set out in the B.C. Tobacco Control Act, to 7.5 metres. Ashlie said people have complained that three metres isn’t enough to keep smoke outside of buildings. Fraser Health has also been pushing for a greater distance. Other parts of the new bylaw would have banned smoking from beaches, playgrounds, picnic areas, skateboard parks or sports fields. According to a district video of the meeting, Couns. Corisa Bell, Michael Morden and Al Hogarth voted against the bylaw, as well as a motion by Coun. Bob Masse to defer the issue. Bell said she supported the new distances, but didn’t want to pass a bylaw that district may not be able enforce. A staff report describes the bylaw as having mainly an educational function. Instead, the district should just have an educational campaign, Bell added. “Since being elected, I’ve not heard one complaint about smoking.” She sees many smokers near downtown buildings that don’t get tickets from bylaw officers. Hogarth, a smoker, said exceeding the provincial distance could put the onus of enforcement on to the district. “I’m going to start defending myself as a smoker.” He said motor vehicles put out more carcinogens than his cigarette. “I think I’ve been pushed far enough,” he said earlier. To improve air quality, focus on building and vehicle emissions, he said. “I’m opposed to the cost of getting into that enforcement game,” added Morden, who also noted that people with medicinal marijuana licences can light up anywhere and that the B.C. law was adequate. “I just see that we’re going into a position here that has no good end.” With three voting against and Ashlie, Masse and Daykin in favour, the vote was tied, leading to the bylaw being defeated. Coun. Judy Dueck was absent. With the bylaw’s defeat, Maple Ridge’s old smoking bylaw from 1997 remains in place. That still allows smoking rooms in restaurants, pubs and work places, and allots 30 per cent of casino space for non-smokers.
Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
A smoker outside the Maple Ridge Business Centre. However, the bylaw is superceded by the B.C. Tobacco Control Act, which in 2008, banned all smoking indoors in any public or work space. It also set out the minimum distance of three metres from doors and windows and bans tobacco from school grounds. Fraser Health still favours the 7.5 metre-distance. “We don’t think it’s [three metres] is adequate. That’s why we’re promoting the 7.5 metres,” said Ken Shaw, manager for environmental health. But he hoped Maple Ridge might again try to pass the bylaw. Doing so would make it consistent with the City of Pitt Meadows, which already has the 7.5-metre distance. Daykin said he doesn’t know what will happen next. As mayor, he could bring the issue back to council for another at-
tempt. “It will be interesting to see what the public feedback is on it.” Ashlie said council has discussed the issue previously. “I never thought in a million years, this would be an issue.” She said the district has already taken on the enforcement of smoking rules and that bylaws can
focus on problem areas and start enforcement if there’s a problem. “There’s no lack of ability to enforce.” Most of the population, about 83 per cent of whom don’t smoke, are becoming more protective about their air space, she added. Port Moody and Surrey have supported the 7.5-metre smoking distance, while Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Delta and New Westminster only require three metres. Richmond and Chilliwack don’t have a smoking bylaw, instead relying entirely on the B.C. law. Starting with Manitoba and New Brunswick in 2004, Canadian provinces eventually outlawed all smoking in bars and restaurants.

Turn out lights again for Earth Hour Earth Hour, the annual energy conservation event during which people turn out their lights for one hour, takes place this Saturday. B.C. Hydro is encouraging people to turn out lights between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. to support promote conservation and climate change. Last year, the District of Maple Ridge saw a drop of 2.5 per cent in the community electricity load, a 39 per cent improvement over the 2012 results. Pitt Meadows reduced consumption by 2.7 per cent, surpassing the provincial average of 1.96 per cent. Maple Ridge will again be turning off lights in the district’s corporate buildings as part of this year’s event. Hosted by the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour takes place in 7,000 cities across 152 countries around the world.

Farmland reserve gets split into two But local areas won’t be affected by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter
Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett stirred up a hornet’s nest last summer when he said that the Agricultural Land Reserve boundaries may change. But the announcement Tuesday on the core review of the land reserve didn’t hint at redrawing lines, apart from an ongoing review in the east Kootenays. “There are no wholesale changes coming,” said Maple Ridge-Pitt Mead-
ows MLA Doug Bing. The Agricultural Land Commission will remain independent and keep protecting farmland, he added. The results of the core review, though, do call for splitting the reserve into two areas: Zone 1 will include the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan; Zone 2 applies to ALR throughout the rest of the province. In the latter, there will be more flexibility for “non-agricultural, homebased businesses.” Non-farm uses will not be considered in the Island, South Coast and Okanagan regions, but “value added” activities
such as food processing on farmland are being considered across the province, Bennett said. As for Zone 1, which includes Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, farmland status will remain the same, with decisions still made under the original principle, to protect farmland, according to a release. Former NDP agricultural critic Michael Sather is still skeptical. “It’s hard to say, because there was lots of talk about changes in the northeast to assist energy companies. But, “It doesn’t sound as bad and maybe it isn’t.” Delta South independent MLA Vicki Hun-

Parks and Recreation Survey Maple Ridge - Pitt Meadows Parks & Leisure Services, in partnership with Sentis Research, is conducting a survey to measure usage and satisfaction with parks and recreation programs, services and facilities. Randomly selected households have been mailed a notification letter with a link and a unique, one-time-use pass code to enter the online survey; if your household was randomly selected to participate in the survey we hope you will take part.
tington called the Interior zone change “deceitful and a betrayal of the public trust,” and accused the government of removing its obligation to consult with the ALC chair on new panel appointments. Current NDP agriculture critic Nicolas Simons was forced by the speaker to withdraw the term “deceitful” from his remarks in the legislature, as he accused Bennett of keeping the changes secret until after last year’s election. “The fundamental principle is that the reserve was set up for the entire province, not for zones here and zones there,” Simons said. Bennett said the only change to the Interior zones is the addition of “social and economic” factors in considering permitted uses. He gave the example from his Kootenay constituency of a market garden operator who was refused permission to build a second home on an unproductive part of the property so the next generation could take over the business. However, SFU geography master’s graduate Kelly Baldwin said that allowing other uses on farmland can lead to its fragmentation and loss of use for farming. She added that allowing secondary uses on ALR land may make it easier to remove from the reserve later. “It is easier to push projects like Site C through, for instance, if you can argue in a political arena that the land within the ALR is not used for farming at the current time.” Rhonda Driediger, chair of the B.C. Agricultural Council and operator of Driediger Farms in Langley, said she is looking forward to the changes that will allow development of new revenue. “The ALC is old and it hasn’t been updated in a long time,” Driediger said. “On a day-to-day basis it makes it very difficult in farming, especially when you’re looking to be progressive.” Faye Street, general manager of Kootenay Livestock Association, congratulated the ministers “for having the three Bs in the male anatomy to get this done – starting at the brain, backbone and work your way down.” Street said young farmers are not entering the industry under the current conditions, and allowing them supplementary income will help maintain the farmers. – with Black Press files.

Driveway readers to spend billions to buy a new set of wheels Driveway readers are in the mood to splash out an astonishing $3.6 billion-plus of their hard-earned cash to buy new vehicles this year. This is not some by Keith Morgan wild, optimistic prediction but a solid forecast based on what our readers revealed in a comprehensive survey conducted on behalf of Black Press by Pulse Research, a company with 30 years of experience in asking the right questions of consumers. In a series of wide-ranging interviews, Black Press newspaper readers from all over the province gave Pulse a comprehensive account of their spending plans. Their intention to spend $53.1 million on fish and chips, $45.8 million on tooth whitening, $13.1 million on tattoos or piercing, $9.1 million on pet toys and $1.9 million on tuxedos, raised some smiles. But the auto spending intent grabbed our serious attention. A massive 123,275 households will take vehicles for a spin and sign on the dotted line. A massive 51,895 will park a new car on their driveway, 32,312 will house a sport ute in their garage, while another 28,395 will opt for a truck out front. Most people surveyed knew what kind of wheels they would be looking for and what they were prepared to pay.

Chrysler wheels out its sedan segment slugger driveway
took place in Louisville, KY, the home of the Louisville slugger. Nevertheless, here are the meat and potatoes for the all-new vehicle.
There are four trims of 200 available. First is the LX and that has a starting MSRP of $22,995. Then there’s the Limited, the S and the top-of-the-line C model. Regardless of trim, each comes with an industry first, also known as a nine-speed automatic transmission. My day started behind the wheel of the Limited trim with the 2.4L, four-cylinder MultiAir engine (MSRP $24,995). This powerplant produces 184 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque. The interior reflects that of thoughtful craftsmanship and design. Soft touch materials are used throughout and the layout is easy on the eyes, not to mention the abundance of cubbyholes in which to place personal items. On a side note, the interior colour combinations drew inspiration from various American cities. For example, the all black interior pays homage to New York City, the Linen and Black is California and the Blue and Black on the S model to Detroit. The centre stack can be adorned with either a fiveinch touch screen or the optional 8.4-inch. To me, the five-inch screen seemed a little small, so I’d invest in the larger version. That said, it was still highly functional and easy to use. On the road, the 2.4L Limited shines brightest when on the highway and on long stretches of pavement. It has ability in the twists and turns. But to really get a dynamic feel, you’d need to opt for the S or C trim to put it in the Sport mode. In that case, you get a different suspension setup and steering feel to really allow you to have more fun in the captain’s chair. Back to the 2.4L though. In the city, I felt I didn’t need much more power. Steering feel is light and allows to car the move with ease at slow speeds and gingerly into parking spots. Overall, a pleasant drive. The second half of my day was consumed with the V6. The award winning 3.6L, Pentastar V6 packs 295 horsepower underneath its sparkling new hood. For a driver’s car, this is the one I’d pick. What’s more, you can configure this engine on all trims except the base LX. Additionally, you can opt for an all-wheel drive setup too. However, the AWD system needs to be paired with the V6. See Straub, p19

It drivewaybc.ca looked like someone had
dropped a bowling ball into it from about a high ledge. I could smell antifreeze and noticed some oil leaks. I headed back to the dealership disappointed. The salesman was there to greet me. He asked if I had any concerns and I started to point out the obvious. He quickly dismissed them as cosmetic and said do you want to write a deal on it because he has people in the showroom wanting to buy it. I told him I was not interested. On the ride home, I thought how quickly I had to grow up and look at everything as if someone was going to take advantage of me, sad reality. The next day I picked up the latest copy of Truck Trader and spotted the exact make and model I was looking for. I bought the 1983 edition for $9,000 from a family that only used it once a week to drive to Abbotsford and back to Coquitlam for supplies. It was perfect. A week later I started to work on it. I acquired some used 33-inch tires and installed a lift kit. I drove that truck every night after work to show it off. I washed it so many times I
thought the paint was going to come off. A year had past and I purchased many more items for the truck. A major car show was coming up soon and I decided I would put it in the back of the shop and work on it so I could enter it into the show. Giving up my truck for a month was tough and I had to make a few sacrifices to get around. My first car show was a hit. I came in second place and I was determined the following year I would be back with something they have never seen before. I poured most of my paychecks into my truck and took it off the road for two months to prepare for its transformation. I called up the owner of Interco Tire and asked about some Supper Swamper tires. He said he had a set of 44x18.5x15 tires in his office that nobody had seen before. I told him to send them to me and I would figure out what I had to do to fit them under the truck. When they came in, they looked big – so big I was getting worried. The custom leaf springs came back from the shop and I knew my calculations were correct. With all the

multiple shocks in place, chassis freshly painted, motor work done, a lower gears installed, it was ready for the tires. I cleared away the debris pile that accumulated around my truck, placed the floor jack under the rear axle and started to jack it up. With the rear tires on and clearing the fenders, it was time to move to the front. When I started to lift the front, I noticed how high the hood was getting, at that point I knew I had built a monster. With all the tires in place, I slowly drove it out of the shop. The sun gleaming down on the freshly polished paint and the smell of paint burning off the exhaust system still sticks in my mind. Outside, it looked like a beast; people were slowing down to take a look. The show was a week later and I came home with first place. Mission accomplished. It was worth every penny of the $12,000 I put into it. Then I sold it for $15,500 in 1990, so that I could afford to get married. ian.harwood@ drivewaybc.ca

Homeless, asleep on a park bench Ac t s of Faith by Bradley Christianson-Barker
anadian artist Timothy Schmalz has become quite well know for a recent life-size sculpture of a person under a blanket sleeping on a park bench. It’s only when you get closer to the sculpture that you can see his nail-scarred feet, and you realize that you’re looking at a depiction of Jesus, homeless, asleep on a park bench. A picture is worth a 1,000 words. In one swift moment, we are confronted with our treatment for those who have been forgotten and pushed to the margins of our society. We are confronted with our Christianity, our religiosity that has often replaced God’s value for life and every individual. The image provokes more thought and compassion than entire books written on faith,
Investment in youth The Kiwanis Club of Golden Ears has donated $2,500 to Alouette Addiction Services to help youth drug and alcohol programs. “There are more than 7,200 high school students in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows,” said John Cowan, Kiwanis Club president.
Do you fit into one of these categories?
and it calls for more action than a pastor can inspire on any given Sunday. Last month, a replica was placed outside a church in a suburban North Carolina college town, and controversy quickly followed. Why? Because homeless don’t “belong” in our town, Jerry Dawson wrote to the local editor of davidsonnews.net: “My complaint is not about its art-worthiness ... It is about people driving into our beautiful, reasonably upscale neighborhood and seeing an ugly homeless person sleeping on a park bench.” Dawson is speaking about a statue, but I couldn’t help but hear the reverberations in Maple Ridge of people speaking about others in the same way. “Homeless Jesus” demands that we see the dignity and humanity in every individual, calling us to recognize the face of Jesus in everyone and that each are reflecting the image of God.
“Homeless Jesus” calls our attention to the role of the Church and individuals, to be a light in this world, to bring the Kingdom of God here, to be a reflection of God in our community. If we recognize the face of Jesus in every individual, even those who are homeless, criminals, addicts, then we begin to do just that, reflect God’s love in our world. That’s what following Christ is really about. When we value life as God does, it changes the way we think about and live our Christian faith. Jesus summarized our call, “Love God ... Love people.” In doing that, everything falls into place. All of the religiosity disappears. See the face of God in every individual, and the world changes. Faith changes. And people notice. Bradley Christianson-Barker is pastor at Open Door Church.
“The Kiwanis Club of Golden Ears is committed to the well being of everyone in our communities, but we do focus a lot of energy on our youth. We recognize that Alouette Addiction Services does a tremendous amount of outreach work, helping our youth, and we are proud to support them in their efforts.” Alouette Addiction Services is a non-profit agency in Maple
Ridge that provides free counselling to anyone affected, directly or indirectly, by drug or alcohol abuse and mental health issues. “With this funding, we can increase our programming for youth and parents and we are absolutely thrilled that the Kiwanis Club of Golden Ears chose to donate to us,” said Annika Polegato, executive director for Alouette Addiction Services.

Design and livability combine at Sixth + Willow By Kerry Vital
The ultimate modern lifestyle has arrived in Vancouver at Sixth + Willow, a townhouse community from Kenstone Properties that has people talking. The curving weathered steel screen on the exterior is something unique in the area and has inspired a lot of interest. “We were inspired by the location, and the busyness and traffic along 6th Avenue,” says Kenstone’s director Edwin Liang.
“It references the speed and movement of cars; it’s almost like an armour.” The weathered steel screen on the exterior of the development also filters out noise from the streets around it, and allows for residents to look out while hiding their home from view. It’s been garnering a lot of buzz. “People don’t really understand it,” says Liang. “While we were constructing it, people would stop to look at it, and
NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT
people in the neighbourhood ask about it. There have been a lot of questions. Sometimes people think we’re being funky for the sake of it, but that’s not the case here.” The screen has already been installed, and the weathering steel will continue to oxidize and attain a rusty patina, adding to the beauty of the architecture. “You’re witnessing a process,” says Liang. “The process isn’t as beautiful as the finished product. These homes were designed and developed to be experienced in person.” Liang notes that Kenstone’s end goal is to create enduring value for their homeowners, and this will continue at Sixth + Willow. “We concentrate on the livability of our projects,” he says. “We build something different.” Inside, the townhomes have been built to ensure tons of natural light and afford beautiful views. Homeowners are within walking distance of tons of amenities, including dining, shopping, leisure and recreation. For more information about Sixth + Willow, visit www. sixthandwillow.com.
Anthem Properties and Beedie Living are developing a master-planned community in Burnaby’s Metrotown area called Station Square that will eventually encompass five towers and plenty of retail and commercial space. The homes themselves are spacious and open, with breathtaking views of the surrounding neighbourhood.
Master-planned living at Burnaby’s Station Square By Kerry Vital
Anthem Properties and Beedie Living have teamed up to bring Station Square to Burnaby’s Metrotown neighbourhood. With a fantastic location, beautiful homes and plenty of amenities, it’s no surprise that people from all over the Lower Mainland are flocking to it. “Burnaby is a sought-after city to live in,” says Greg Zayadi, vice-president of sales and marketing for Anthem Properties. “This is an incredible little neighbourhood we’re creating.” The second tower at Station Square will open for sale in mid-May, and will be a 48-storey building encompassing 443 condominium homes. “The first tower has been a huge success,” says Zayadi. “There’s a huge amount of interest in the next tower.” Zayadi says that Anthem will offer the same beautiful features as in the first tower, but with a few changes, including slightly different floorplans.
Station Square will eventually include five towers and tons of retail and commercial space. Among the confirmed tenants are Rexall, Save On Foods, TD Canada Trust and Caffe Artigiano. There will also be direct access to SkyTrain and transit. If you choose to venture off your property, the Metrotown neighbourhood offers plenty of options for shopping, dining, leisure and recreation. The architecture at Station Square will be distinctive and modern, with bay windows and plenty of glass and concrete. “The tower has been inspired by New Yorkstyle art deco skyscrapers and is intended to stand proudly in its own right, appearing taller than it actually is by incorporating vertical elements such as the deco top, bay window and superframe elements,” according to architect Chris Dikeakos Architects Inc. Due to the height of the building, homeowners at Station Square’s second tower will have breathtaking views. Inside, modern gourmet kitchens feature stainless-steel appliances, contemporary flatpanel laminate cabinetry with under-cabinet recessed puck lighting and quartz countertops with marble accents. Wood laminate flooring throughout the living areas and bedrooms and ceilings up to nine feet in height continue the luxurious theme, while the bathrooms are spa-like and
relaxing, with quartz countertops, a soaker tub and a frameless glass shower surround in select bathrooms. Homeowners will have access to plenty of amenities, including nearly an acre of indoor and outdoor space, Zayadi says. The first and second tower will share some of their
amenities, including an infrared sauna, fitness facility, entertainment lounge with a gourmet kitchen, indoor/outdoor seating and outdoor dining areas and a reflecting pool. Homes start in the $250,000 range. For more information, visit www.stationsquare.ca or call 604-689-3040.

Roses for people who hate roses
By Mike Lascelle
f you were to ask people who purport to hate roses exactly what it is they dislike about these popular flowering shrubs and climbers, most of them would complain about the constant cultural problems.
They generally like the beautiful flowers, the scintillating fragrance and long blooming season, but hate the disease issues. And as most gardeners know in wet coastal British Columbia – fighting black spot, powdery mildew and rust can be a bit of an ongoing challenge, and many people just don’t want to have to constantly spray fungicides. There are a couple of reasons why this disease problem is so severe, one being our often challenging wet weather, the other that many of the new roses are being bred and tested in California, where they thrive on the heat and drier climate. When those same roses goes north, it is often a different story. However, there is some hope, and it comes from Pan American Nursery, which supplies local garden centres with a new line of disease-resistant roses called Clean ‘n Easy. These Kordes roses have been rigorously tested for their beautiful flower display, excellent vigour and, above all, disease resistance. There are seven cultivars in this collection, including three floribundas and four hybrid teas – ‘Archbishop Desmond Tutu’ (red); ‘Poseidon’ (lavender); ‘Brothers Grimm’ (pink/ orange blend); ‘Wedding Bells’ (pink);

‘Grande Amore’ (red); ‘Souvenir de Baden Baden’ (pink); and ‘Winter Sun’ (yellow). These come to us from W. Kordes Sohne (W. Kordes’ Sons), a family run German nursery with 125 years of experience breeding disease-resistant roses. This dynasty began in 1887 with Wilhelm Kordes, who started a rose breeding nursery in northern Germany. His goal was to create roses that thrive in the local climate (which is similar to our own) and he began by breeding with European natives such as Rosa canina, R. spinosissima and R. rubiginosa, and eventually expanded to hardy Asian species such as R. wichurana and Rosa rugosa.
His son, Wilhelm the Second, successfully crossed the latter two species to create a new class of hardy, glossy-leaved roses called Kordesii, which was later used extensively in the development of the Canadian Explorer Series. Wilhem Jr.’s son Reimer was responsible for breeding such rose standards as ‘Iceberg’ (white floribunda), ‘Antike 89’ (white/rose blend climber), ‘Golden Holstein’ (yellow floribunda) and ‘Alchymist’ (apricot climber or shrub). During the 1950s and ’60s, the third generation of Kordes, including Reimer, Hermann the Second and Werner, reached the peak of
production, growing upwards of four million roses a year. Today, W. Kordes Sohne is being run by the fourth generation, but they have kept to their core commitment of producing disease resistant varieties, as they have not sprayed their test garden roses at all for the past 20 years, just so they can see the true results of their breeding. The latter program includes crossing 50,000 new varieties each year. That will ultimately yield between four to six new cultivars for the market, and even these must go through a rigorous eight- to 10-year testing period. So, as you can see, it is no small

feat to produce a disease resistant rose and luck really has nothing to do with it when only a handful of successes arise out of thousands of deliberate crosses. That being said, Kordes has many other worthy roses to offer, including ‘Westerland’, ‘Leverkusen’, ‘Blue Girl’, ‘Aloha’, ‘Sunsprite’, ‘Peter Frankenfeld’, ‘Dortmund’, ‘Nicole’, ‘Loving Memory’ and ‘Samba’.

ONE PERCENT –REALTY–
JOHN CARLSON 604-612-0080
Q: How do your fees work? A: We charge a flat fee of $6950 + GST for anything that sells under $600,000, and a rate of 1% of the sale price + $950 + GST for anything that sells over $600,000. Q: How can you provide the same services but charge less? A: We work on volume. So many people want us to sell their homes that we can make a good living without charging a lot. It doesn’t take any more work to sell a $600,000 home than to sell a $300,000 home, so why should you pay so much more? Q: If I pay less, will I settle for less service and get less money? A: Definitely not. You’ll get the same level of services and the same results you’d expect to receive at other brokerages. Full MLS®, REALTOR.ca, professional photos, open houses, all documentation, negotiations, and an experienced agent. Q: Will other REALTORS® show my home if I list with One Percent Realty? A: Absolutely, yes. Statistically, One Percent Realty is similar to other brokerages -- Approximately 7080% ** of our listings annually are sold by agents from other brokerages (and we can prove it). Buyers don’t care who is listing your property; buyers only care if your property is right for them. So, our properties are shown or sold by other agents every day of the year. Give us a call to hear the straight facts!

Close to home – pitcher chooses Thunderbirds Softball player Emma Tuson was flattered when U.S. colleges came calling. She was on the verge of becoming a pitcher playing out a scholarship in the prestigious NCAA. Schools in Phoenix and Hawaii were interested. But unlike most of the elite scholar-athletes in the province, Tuson is putting education ahead of sports. She chose the UBC Thunderbirds. “I wanted to stay close to home, and I like Vancouver,” said Tuson. “My education is really important to me, to set me on a path to a good career.” She has a 3.8 GPA (about one B for every three As) at Thomas Haney secondary, and wants to get a business degree. Then it will be off to law school. The Sauder School of

women who were the cream of the crop among high schoolers, and some of them four years farther along in their development. “Coach Gord told me ‘You’re going to get hit next year.’” she said. “But I think I’ll do well. I’m confident in myself.” Her father Anthony is particularly stoked that his daughter will be playing close to home. “For sure I am – to be able to watch her pitch in university… I’m all over it.” There is a cloud hanging over the program at UBC. The university conducted a controversial review of its 29 varsity sports, and softball was one of five sports relegated to club status. The team will get one more year in the NAIA, and then be reviewed at the end of next season. Tuson is hoping for the best. “I’m really hoping they pass that review, and continue to play varsity.”
Erin Cebula, Spokesperson
Business at UBC is one of the topranked programs in the country, so that’s the main attraction. Tuson would probably earn similar letter grades as a pitcher. Her favourite pitch is her A-plus curveball, but she also has a moving fastball, complimented by a deceptive changeup that leaves hapless hitters reaching and flailing. Last year she started playing with the Burnaby Oakeys, and the pitching coaches taught her some new tricks – a rise ball, and a screwball. The latter is like a rise ball, but with some additional break. Playing in an elite program, against tough U.S. competition, she could see her game go to a new level. “It started to click.” In the Acers tournament in Seattle, she was thrown in against the tough Northwest Sidewinders team, tossing five innings without giving up a run.

TAX PLANNING CENTRE
Recovery a key part of performance I n sport, recovery is an essential component of successful, healthy play during both offseason and in-season periods. Training requires enduring physical and psychological stress and athletes must allow the proper amount and quality of recovery before initiating the next session of training. Otherwise, your body will not improve its ability to perform and may even begin to break down. But recovery is not a simple process; it’s a multidimensional concept that should be understood by athletes and coaches. Recovery involves dealing with a number of different types of fatigue: metabolic (muscles and energy systems), nervous system, psychological and emotional fatigue as well. The role of recovery should be to normalize physical structure and mental states but also to super-compensate (above normal levels) the energy systems and protein, collagen and other soft tissue and bone components. The proper nutrients, hydration, sleep, post-game or workout regimen, and mental recovery strategies need to be put in place for the whole competitive season. Post-game/workout nutrition should focus on a mixture of carbohydrates and protein if the training session was demanding enough on the tissues, or if the athlete has another event that day. Tournaments often require two or

HOWEY, Keith Richard 1963 - 2014 With sad hearts we announce Keith’s sudden passing at Maple Ridge Hospital on March 10, 2014. Keith was born in Saskatoon, Sask. but lived in Maple Ridge for many years. He leaves to miss him his daughters Chelsea and Emily who were the bright lights in his life. He loved them both so much and was very proud of the young women they had become. Their mother Cindy, aunt Natalie and grandmother Elizabeth, as well as his mother Flora (Dennis), his brother Bill (Carol), sisters Karen and Brenda (Silvano), nephews Kurtis, Brendan, Nico, Nigel, and Willy and niece Savannah. Gone before him, his Dad Bill and his loving Grandma Elsie and Grandpa Wilfred. There are as well Keith’s friends, who are too numerous to mention. He touched many lives through his work at Tree of Life, his landscaping business Howey Enterprises, his hockey and baseball teams, those from school, the One Way club and A.A. Keith was known as a man with a big heart, always willing to listen, lend a hand, and share a laugh. He was a good and loyal friend. There will be a Celebration of Life, to be held by his girls, at a later date, where those who were close to Keith can gather to say goodbye. He loved to be out on the water, enjoying nature and fishing. For those wishing, donations can be made in Keith’s name to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Condolences may be sent to: www.mapleridgefuneral.ca
His journey has just begun, don’t think of him as gone away his journey has just begun. Life holds so many facets - this earth is only one. Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears, in a place with warmth and comfort, where there are no days and years. Think how he must be wishing that we could know today, that nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched, For nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much. Rest in peace and beauty Keith, ﬁsh lots, and ﬂy down heaven’s ice to score.
Four months after being diagnosed with brain cancer, Anthony te Boekhorst passed away peacefully on the first day of spring at the Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack BC. Anthony was born in the Netherlands on February 24, 1933 and spent his early years in the Dutch East Indies. He returned to the Netherlands with his parents just in time to see the start of the Second World War. Nine years after the war Anthony graduated from Technical College and following a short stint in the army, he married his high school sweetheart. The couple soon emigrated to Vancouver where they had three sons. After working as an electrical engineer Anthony felt a change was needed, so a decision was made to attend UBC medical school. Once completing his internship at VGH, he and his family moved to Maple Ridge where he opened his general practice. Shortly thereafter he found a different approach to healing was in order, so Anthony’s practice turned to treating both the mind and body. The sea was a passion for Anthony and after retiring from his practice he enjoyed four years as a cruise ship Doctor. Anthony spent the last years of his life in Chilliwack with his wife, Johanna. As per Anthony’s wish his body has been donated to the UBC medical school. By his request there will not be a service. Anthony is survived by his wife Johanna, his brother Jan and family, his three sons Michael (Cheryl), David (Jody), Derrick (Teresa) and four grandchildren Megan, Jobyna, Derrick, and Hunter.
