Maple Ridge man guilty of sex crimes Offences date back to 1980s by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

A Maple Ridge sex offender has been found guilty of three crimes against two brothers, dating back to the 1980s. Richard Elbertson Richardson, 62, was found guilty of two counts of sexual assault and one of gross indecency in New Westminster Supreme Court on Tuesday. He was found not guilty of two other charges, buggery and indecent assault on a male person, which related to the same circumstances. The crimes occurred between 1981 and 1983. The court found Richardson drank vodka at his home in Maple Ridge with a 15-year-old boy before sexually assaulting him. He assaulted the boy on five different occasions. He also assaulted a 10-year-old brother of the victim twice. The older victim, who still lives in the area, said just getting Richardson off the streets is important, which is why he came forward. “When I found out he was in custody, that was a relief to me,” he said.

Court Housing Co-op, who live in two-bedroom apartments, rent will jump by $166 by next April 1, off their pension or disability income. Either the pensioners pay or they move to one-bedroom apartments, if they can find any. “I think they’re trying to make us all street people,” said Emily Little, who lives in a two-bedroom suite that she shared with her husband until he passed away. Little is in one of the subsidized suites in the co-op and scrapes by on a small company pension, as well as CPP and Old Age Security. And when next April rolls around

and the rent increases, she’ll figure out a way to pay for it. “We can pay the $166, but is that going to last for any length of time?” When will be the next increase, she asked. “Then I’ll do without a supper a week – or something like that.” According to B.C. Housing, the rents have to go up so money can be available for other subsidized housing. Residents will still get a subsidy, but only that for a onebedroom apartment, requiring residents to pay the difference. Signy Eggertson, on disability income of $905 a month, is in the same predicament after her

roommate moved out. Only five of the 47 apartments in the building are one-bedroom. “There’s nowhere to go out there. This is absolutely ridiculous. What are people supposed to do?” Louise Parson’s 87-year-old mom Rita will also pay the extra $166 so she can stay in her twobedroom apartment, where she’s lived for almost 20 years and for which she pays $453 a month. Her husband, a war vet, died in 2001, leaving Rita the sole occupant. “I’m staying here. Nobody else wants me,” she said Wednesday.

www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Friday, May 16, 2014 -- 3

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

Two homes along Lougheed Highway near at the entrance to downtown Maple Ridge were destroyed by fire a year ago.

Downtown monuments to fire T

S tor y by Phil Melnychuk

he fire struck in April 2013, at the entrance to downtown Maple Ridge, gutting two old homes on Lougheed Highway and 222nd Street, leaving them a charred mess on the main road. Weeds grew and the roofs sagged as the months rolled by, and a year passed.

It took until a demolition order on Feb. 17 of this year for the wheels of municipal bureaucracy to lurch into motion. Now, after council gave the property owner a month’s notice, the homes can be torn down, once hazardous materials have been removed. In a few weeks, bulldozers are to move in and clear the debris, removing an eyesore at the entrance of downtown. “We were under the impression that they were going to do certain things and that didn’t happen,” said Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin of why it took so long. Building inspections done April 26 and June 6 last year declared the buildings unsafe. Staff say the conditions inside were so bad, firefighters couldn’t enter the building if it caught fire, even if someone was inside. One of the houses, at 22043 Lougheed Hwy., contained a marijuana grow-operation, while the other, at 22033 Lougheed Hwy., was vacant. Disputes between creditors, strata ownership and insurance companies can delay decisions about buildings. “Maybe we need to evaluate what our current processes are,” Daykin said. “I don’t have any difficulty with taking a look at

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

An apartment building at 22355 McIntosh Ave. in the downtown core was ravaged by fire in December 2012. Plans for it remain uncertain. how we do things and if we can tighten it up somehow.” But there probably isn’t just one way to remove a run-down building. “It’s not like we’re not paying attention or we don’t want it to happen quicker.” Yet, a larger eyesore has dominated McIntosh Avenue in the downtown since a Dec. 12, 2012 fire. It looms over the downtown streetscape with empty, smashed windows looking over the streets, resembling the vacant eyes of a 222nd Street crack-cocaine addict. Daykin said the building owners are still negotiating with insurance companies to allow possible repair of the structure. The mayor wants to inquire with the in-

surance industry to see what the normal processing times are for claims. “I’m going to try to find out a little bit more on that. If you have a major fire, what is the expectation for that to get turned around.” Daykin noted that the building is secure and people aren’t sneaking into it or squatting there. He wonders where the renters went who were living there? “The human toll. Maybe they found other places to live.” But the building isn’t a write off. The fire started in the top floor of the building Dec. 12, 2012, leaving about 30 people homeless. A large clone lab with 1,200 small marijuana plants was found on

the third floor, but it wasn’t the cause of the fire. Maple Ridge Coun. Cheryl Ashlie has raised the topic of old buildings previously, asking why it took so long to demolish the old gym on 224th Street. She hasn’t had an answer. Compared to other cities, she said, it seems to take longer to get a building torn down in Maple Ridge. In Pitt Meadows, a building tear down takes place within six months of a blaze or the time it’s declared a wreck. In Maple Ridge, it takes twice as long. “I just kind of keep making a nuisance of myself,” said Pitt Meadows bylaw enforcement officer Lesley Elchuk. “When I get delays, I just keep bothering them. You just have to keep on them all the time.” With bylaws enforcement triggered by complaints, Elchuk can make a case to council, seeking that the building be either fixed up or torn down. Once council votes to do that, the property owner has a month to comply before the municipality hires a contractor, tears down the house and bills the services on next year’s taxes. But if a building isn’t drawing complaints, the process drags on, such as for two burntout homes on Lougheed Highway in Pitt Meadows. The houses are still standing, a year and a half after the fire. No one has complained. Elchuk, whose bylaw staff consist of 1.5 employees, said she contacts the owners of nuisance buildings and explains the process and gives them options. But many times they delay or can’t decide what to do. Meanwhile, buildings deteriorate, so Elchuk has to ensure they stay boarded up. She’ll only accept stalling for a while. If nothing happens, a report is sent to council within five months, followed another month’s notice to the owner before demolition occurs. In Maple Ridge, it takes a little longer.

Come to our District can’t buy Albion ferry site Seniors Resou rce Fair Closed after bridge opened in 2009 by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter

Maple Ridge will have to let the old Albion ferry terminal lot slip through its hands and allow TransLink to sell it off. Council decided May 5 at a closed meeting that it couldn’t afford to buy the property in order to hold it for a future public use, ensuring public access to the Fraser River. “I find it really disappointing,” said Coun.

TransLink has had the property, which used to be the parking lot for the Albion ferry, on the market for $1.9 million after it no longer needed the property following the opening of Golden Ears Bridge in 2009. The Albion ferry ceased operation when the bridge opened. One possible use for the lot was as part of the Experience the Fraser project, goal of which is to build a recreational trail on both sides of the Fraser River, from Vancouver to Hope.

parks doesn’t like the site. The Fraser River flows too fast at that point for easy access to the water, it says. It’s also too far from Kanaka Creek Regional Park and too small to serve as a boat launch facility. Ashlie led the effort to try to secure the area for the public. She maintains that the Fraser River will increasingly be used for transportation in the

Lower Mainland, so waterfront access has to be secured. “I do think it’s short sighted for them to liquidate it.” However, the price TransLink wanted was high, without even dealing with possible soil decontamination issues from its previous industrial uses. “There were just too many unknowns,” Ashlie said. “We just can’t put ourselves and public money at risk on that.” Ashlie said the next step could be Maple Ridge just asking TransLink to take the lot off the market indefinitely.

Pitt Meadows MLA Bing adds his voice to provincial apology ‘Never wrong time to do right thing’ by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

People may debate about present governments apologizing for historical wrongs, but there was no doubt in Doug Bing’s mind about what to do. It’s never the wrong time to do the right thing, the Maple RidgePitt Meadows MLA said in the legislature Thursday. He was commenting on Premier Christy Clark’s presentation of a formal apology for the B.C. government’s historic anti-Chinese policies. “Today, we express our sorrow and regret for historical provincial government practices

that were once considered appropriate,” Clark said. “We believe this formal apology is required to ensure that closure can be reached on this dark period in our province’s history. “The entire legislative assembly acknowledges the perseverance of Chinese Canadians that was demonstrated with grace and dignity throughout our history while being oppressed by unfair and discriminatory historical laws.” After the premier spoke, other MLAs lined up. Discussion went on all afternoon in the House, Bing said. “I’m quite happy. It’s been an emotional day for everybody … just the unanimity from everyone in the house. It’s nice to see the House as one.” Part of the apology

included $1 million for legacy and education projects about Chinese history in B.C. Apologies have been made to the Japanese community for the evacuations during the Second World War and for the Komagata Maru incident 100 years ago, he pointed out. “This is something that’s long overdue.” In his speech, Bing said the apology is a chance to recognize the achievements of Chinese-Canadians and said it has deep personal meaning. His grandfathers and father arrived in Canada in the early 1900s, paid the head tax and became permanent residents. “Their lives were not easy. They experienced first-hand the effects of racism, prejudice and discrimination from the

over 138 laws and policies passed by this legislature.” Research has identified more than 100 B.C. laws and policies that explicitly discriminated against Chinese people in the early years of B.C. They restricted employment, banned voting and property ownership and imposed provincial taxes and fees based on Chinese origin. (Research is compiled at www.EmbraceBC.ca) The federal government apologized in 2006 and offered compensation of $20,000 to survivors or spouses of those who paid the federal “head tax” that was in place from 1885 to 1923. After raising the tax to $500, Ottawa blocked most Chinese immigrants from entering Canada from 1923 to 1947.

‘I like it here. I don’t want to move’ Housing from front

“I like it here. I’ve been here since 1996, so I don’t want to move.” Next year, when the rent increase takes effect, she’ll have to pay it herself from her pension income without assistance from her two daughters. If her kids pitch in, that’s counted as income, which will reduce the rental subsidy. “I think we’re going to just leave her where she is because she’s too old to move,” said Louise. “I’m sure there are others in worse situations than her and don’t know where they’re going to go.” But co-op finance manager Marian Rice says many may be forced to leave once they realize they can’t come up with the extra money. Those in the subsidized units get

only minimum pensions, that’s why they’re in the units in the first place. Until now, B.C. Housing has encouraged those who are overhoused to relocate, but hasn’t really enforced it. “It’s difficult, especially for the seniors because they’ve been part of this community for more than 20 years,” Rice said. “Now, they’re being told, ‘Sorry, you’ve got to go.’ It’s very hard.” Relocating takes them away from their support groups and could affect their health. “They’re comfortable there,” Rice added. “They’re thriving there. It takes them outside of their support group.” For the most part, the seniors are long-term members of the community, who’ve raised their families and lost

their husbands here. One resident told Rice she’d just have to eat less. “It wouldn’t be such a big deal, but there’s no place to go.” Many people are already on long waiting lists for subsidized one-bedroom apartments, she said. The April 7 letter from B.C. Housing says the benefit to the community of subsidized housing “is being negatively affected by “overhousing,” because the maximum number of people aren’t benefiting from the subsidy. It’s a situation “that will only increase in severity over time if not addressed now.” Fiona Jackson, with the Co‐operative Housing Federation of B.C., said the new approach by B.C. Housing only affects rent supplement agreements under the

index-linked mortgage program. A rough estimate is that 850 units are affected in 59 housing co-ops throughout B.C. Jackson said of more concern is the end to long-term subsidies to co-op housing as federal housing agreements expire. In the next three years, a quarter of housing coops in B.C., or about 1,500 households, will lose those subsidies for low-income families. If the members have to give up their subsidized units, they’ll be facing an expensive rental market. A meeting takes place on the topic Monday, May 26, at the Ford Road Housing Co-op in Pitt Meadows. According to B.C. Housing, the province spends $5.5 million yearly on subsidies to housing co-ops.

Clark said consultations with B.C.’s Chinese community led by International Trade Minister Teresa Wat confirmed the desire for a formal apology, but not individual compensation.  The government is allocating $1 million for legacy initiatives from the existing multiculturalism budget. Monuments or plaques commemorating the contribution of Chinese Canadians to B.C. are being considered for locations that may include Greater Vancouver, Barkerville, Nanaimo and Kamloops. The government had planned to present the apology before the May 2013 provincial election, but that was derailed when a leaked document revealed it was

being planned to maximize political benefit for the B.C. Liberals. A staff member resigned and the apology was postponed. Clark said the govern-

ment has worked with the NDP and independent MLAs to make sure the apology is sincere and non-partisan. – with Black Press

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Spot the twits One only has to stand at a street corner for several minutes, or look over at the driver beside you at a traffic light to see the ineffectiveness of the B.C. ban on using hand-held electronic devices while driving. Some drivers try to disguise their behaviour, using speaker phone and holding their cells below the steering wheel while talking, or wrapping their phones up in a scarf and holding it just below their chins. Those drivers with their eyes down are not likely just looking at their shoes. This despite the fact the ban has been in force since 2010, and carries a fine of $167 and three penalty points. Some may argue that talking on a cell phone while driving is no more dangerous than eating a sandwich while doing the same, or drinking coffee, changing the radio station or singing out loud, for that matter. But fact is, distracted driving-related crashes kill, on average, more than 90 British Columbians a year. ICBC has a campaign, “Drop it and drive,” to eradicate such behaviour. Hand-free devices, while maybe not as reliable, are available for those who can’t resist. Still, some drivers see no shame in texting or talking on their hand-held phones while on the road. Taking a quick glance down at your phone to read a text, or taking an incoming call might not seem as dangerous as drinking and driving or speeding, but it’s pretty close. Distracted driving ranks right behind the latter two when it comes to causing deadly collisions. A new campaign, Twit Spotting, aims to stop people from texting while driving by posting pictures online of people doing so. We shouldn’t have to embarrass folks into changing their behaviour, but maybe that’s what it will take. Statistics and awareness programs, such as Drop it and Drive, while well-meaning, haven’t worked, yet. Then again, people didn’t just start wearing seat belts overnight. It may take more time for people to understand and recognize the safety issue here, for them to stop acting so indignant in this regard. Enforcement can only do so much. Statistics and education can help. Maybe shaming will work. Ultimately, though, it’s up to the drivers themselves, to put their phones down while driving. It’s not that difficult to do. But maybe some people prefer to learn the hard way. – The News

Time to get budget priorities straight F

ollowing up on the milliondollar bike path to nowhere on Lougheed Highway from last year’s list of silly expenditures, Maple Ridge may have spent close to $200,000 replacing the traffic roundabout on Kanaka Way. Sidewinder It seems the old Sandy Macdougall roundabout just wasn’t doing its job as many drivers, at times when there was very little traffic, simply ignored it and drove straight over the painted lines on the road. While the $200,000 estimate is a best guess amount, with municipal crews, outside contractors and equipment tying up traffic on Kanaka Way for a month or so, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to surmise it could have cost more than the suggested $100,000 figure set out in the capital budget. The final costs of the Kanaka project won’t be known until all the bills are paid and, even then, those figures might not include the internal management and design costs, which add to the overall bill. Traffic roundabouts are the municipality’s way of trying to increase the safety and efficiency of traffic flows, but the success or public acceptance of these initiatives seems to be lacking. To many motorists, traffic calming is just another way of saying traffic impairment.

Q

uestion of the week:

The tight radius of some of the roundabouts makes it difficult to successfully maneuver larger vehicles, such as motor homes or light trucks with attached trailers, through the twisted course of the traffic circles without running over the curbs. These small radius roundabouts have popped up in other locations, such as 122nd Avenue between 222nd and 216th streets, and there will likely be many more of them until someone calls a halt to such questionable use of public funds. It is doubtful that the district is serving much purpose other than to distract and annoy drivers and roundabouts are very expensive, especially if they are ripped up and replaced without much justification, such as the Kanaka Way example. And just so we won’t soon forget the Lougheed Highway bike path to nowhere, this year’s capital budget also includes $900,000 to construct Phase 3 of a similar multi-use path on Abernethy Way. The previously completed section of this pathway includes that silly little fence constructed of ugly little pieces of fence posts, which are already showing signs of collapse. These inadequate posts might have served a more noble purpose as logs for a campfire. In contrast to the Cadillac-design pathways on the Lougheed Highway and Abernethy Way and other similar projects, the downtown commercial district has poorly designed or totally absent provision for pedestrians in many areas. The best example of this is the dangerous pedestrian route between Valley Fair

Should politicians’ social media postings be open to public scrutiny? Yes: 91% – No: 9%

Mall and Haney Place Mall. The north side of Selkirk Avenue from 226th Street to a point opposite Thrifty Foods has no sidewalk, at all, or any other form of designated pedestrian path. This stretch of the street is dangerous to pedestrians, wheelchair and scooter users and motorists alike.

“You just have to wonder who sets the budgetary priorities for these things.” And further east on Selkirk, there is absolutely no provision for pedestrians along the entire frontage of the municipally-owned property all the way to 227th Street. You just have to wonder who sets the budgetary priorities for these things. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are available for projects for which there seems to have been little demand other than from a few hundred cyclists, while thousands of downtown pedestrians are left to their own devices about how to maneuver through our pedestrian-oriented core. In 2014, Maple Ridge plans to spend $18.203 million on capital projects, not one nickle of which will be spent on the needlessly dangerous stretches of Selkirk Street. Sandy Macdougall is a retired journalist and former district councillor.

This week’s question: Do you think traffic circles are a good use of taxpayers’ money?

Education to ‘hell’ Diluted bitumen dangerous at sea Editor, The News: Re: Rally for education funding (The News, May 14). As parent to a 10-year-old daughter, who is the centre of my life, I attended the May 9 parent-led rally at MLA Marc Dalton’s office to advocate for increased funding for public education in B.C. I was pleasantly surprised when Mr. Dalton actually showed up to speak. As soon as he opened his mouth, however, my pleasant feelings evaporated faster than water in hell. Despite saying that he cares about public education in B.C., Mr. Dalton had absolutely no intention of actually hearing what we had to say. He was not listening to understand, but simply listening to respond. And respond he did, spewing rhetoric and defending the deplorable actions of his government, placing the need for financial restraint over the future of our province: our children. When asked about government funding for private schools, his response was that those students deserve a decent education, too. Yes, they do, and that is why their parents pay thousands of dollars each year for it. He even had that gall to say every child in B.C. has the choice to go to private school, if they wish. Even those who must buy their clothes at Value Village and collect their weekly groceries at the food bank? Oh, yes, I forgot that Mr. Dalton doesn’t choose to believe that poverty exists in Maple Ridge. I left the rally frustrated and defeated. This man has no interest in the future of public education in B.C. In fact, when I learned that Mr. Dalton is still employed with School District No. 42, on a leave of absence, it was crystal clear to me that the only future he is concerned with his own. Knowing his limitations, I ask Mr. Dalton only one thing: resign your position as a teacher in Maple Ridge. Frankly, it is disdainful to think that you could return to educating our children.

Do you fit into one of these categories?

Editor, The News: Re: Transport system can handle bitumen (Letters, May 9). In a letter to this paper, Greg Stringham, on behalf  of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, makes  assertions about the  behavior of diluted bitumen (dilbit) in salt water that are, at best, half-truths. He states that dilbit floats on salt water and that it is no more dangerous at sea than other types of oil.  That is wrong.  It is more dangerous at sea, and infinitely more so than refined fuels, such as diesel and gasoline. What Mr. Stringham doesn’t mention is that the same report, from Environment  Canada, that he quotes from, goes  on to say that dilbit sinks in seawater when there is sediment present.  Another  study, by a top U.S.  environmental chemist, Jeff Short, says the same thing. It was filed by the Gitxaala Nation to the National Energy Board in March 2013.

So Mr. Stringham is well aware of it.  That  study says animal and plant matter like  plankton, as well as sediment, cause dilbit to sink. Our entire coast has sediment and plankton in abundance. All our rivers are glacial and full of silt. Plankton is omnipresent, which is why  the whales are here, and shallow seas like Hecate Strait throw up huge amounts of sediment from the bottom in storms. Dilbit will sink in our waters if there is a spill and it will harden up  like caulking material Black on beaches and the intertidal zone. The intertidal zone includes large mud flats in the midcoast because the tidal range is more than 20 feet there. How would we ever get them clean again? Mr. Stringham also says our Canadian oil industry is interested in the Kitimat refinery idea. That is news to me. I have talked to all  the companies and there is no interest whatsoever.  That is why

Can reserve up to 40 per cent of sites by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

Many tents have already been pitched in Golden Ears Provincial Park as campers staked out their little piece of paradise in advance of the park’s first busy long weekend. The ticket booth at the park opened on Wednesday, and it has been busy as people take advantage of the Victoria Day long weekend to fire up their Coleman stoves and make s’mores. “This is our first big weekend,” said Liz Hall, with park operator SSG Holdings. In the past, campers would set up early at the first-come-first served sites on Thursdays, even Wednesdays, willing to pay the extra $30 per night to ensure they get a spot. Hall expects Golden Ears will be even busier this year. The other wilderness playground in the Metro VancouverFraser Valley region is Cultus Lake, and this year it will be allowing 100 per cent of its campsites to be reserved. In Golden Ears, 40 per cent of the sites can be reserved up to three months in advance. The other 60 per cent are

Switching to cleaner, cheaper LED street lights still isn’t worth the cost, but the District of Maple Ridge wants to be ready if or when the price does come down. It plans on doing that by fitting a new Silver Valley suburb, Nelson Peaks, with 23 new decorative poles that will use Philips LED lights. At $1,000 each, the cost to the district could have been $23,000, but a $11,000 contribution from Portrait Homes and $12,000 from the carbon tax rebate funds will ensure the project doesn’t affect the district’s budget. “At the present time, it’s pretty hard to make a case for it [switching to LED],” said Laura Benson, sustainability

manager with the district. But LED technology is constantly dropping in price and at some point it will be worth junking the old high-pressure sodium lights and replacing them with LEDs, which produce the same light with only 10 per cent of the power. According to projections, it will take the district 14 years to save in power what it spent on the new lights in Nelson Peaks. The lights last about 15 years, making it a break-even case, said Benson. The lights will be installed on decorative poles beginning this June in the suburb near 136th Avenue. “We’ll look for citizen feedback,” Benson said. “It should be cheaper to maintain them. It’s way more light for the en-

ergy it draws.” She added the LEDs don’t have ballasts in them, so those don’t have to be replaced, but the glass has to be cleaned. Maple Ridge experimented with LED street lights at Abernethy Way and 224th Street a few years ago, when it installed 24 “cobra” lights that curve over the road, at a discounted cost of $200 per pole. Over the 20 year life of the lights, the district expects to save $16,000 in power. However, the district is also eyeing a larger project that could save more money and see more brighter LEDs on district streets. B.C. Hydro has said it’s interested in partnering with the district in switching over the old high-pressure sodium lights on its poles. Con-

verting to cheaper LEDs would save the district money because it pays BC Hydro for the power used for the lights. Of the 5,000 street lights throughout the district, B.C. Hydro owns about 1,650. “They’re trying to curb demand for energy,” Benson pointed out. “It would make sense for them to start dealing with their own poles.” However, the district also has to pay B.C. Hydro five times the usual electricity rates because maintenance costs are added in. As a result, Maple Ridge wants B.C. Hydro to divest itself of those poles so it can run its own. “There is a potential for savings with LED for both, and we’re hoping to partner with B.C. Hydro to convert some of their poles to LED.”

256th Street and Dewdney Trunk Road is also considered a commercial node, it won’t be affected. “The historical centre of 256th Street will still remain. It has limited potential because it’s not in Metro Vancouver’s Fraser sewer area.” That means businesses outside the area can’t connect to Metro Vancouver’s sewage system. However, the corner at 248th St. is within the sewer area. The corner was also recently added to its commercial industrial strategy which lists areas the district wants to develop. Coun. Al Hogarth, a realtor, asked if the commercial complex should have a residential component, such as rental units to increase security in the area. Planning director Christine Carter, though, replied that while the district doesn’t oppose residential, it doesn’t want to include it automatically in the new zoning category. That way, developers have to request a residential component, giving the district leverage in the type of project proposed. Council will look at the rezoning proposal at a future meeting.

Seeks input to replace long-form census data by Neil Corbet t staff reporter

The Fraser Health Authority is collecting data that could be used to address health and wellness issues in a precise way, but time is running out to get enough responses. The My Health My Community survey is intended to generate health statistics, and the authority would like a healthy response. The online survey closes June 30, 2014, and aims to collect information from between two to four per cent of the population who are aged 18 and up. “It would provide us with community level – and possibly neighbourhood level – information on a whole host of variables that we have not accessed in the past,” said Dr. Lisa Mu, a med-

ical health officer with Fraser Health. She said the information will replace data that used to be collected in the long-form national census “to some degree.” The survey required 43,000 people, and opened in June of 2013. So far it is at only 48 per cent of that goal in Fraser Health, compared with 81 per cent in Coastal Vancouver. Maple Ridge is lagging farther behind. Fraser Health would like 1,458 surveys completed in Maple Ridge, and is at 40 per cent of that goal, with 587. The minimum to have reliable data is 871 surveys. Pitt Meadows is slightly ahead of Maple Ridge at 43 per cent, but has only 199 of 275 surveys completed. The survey addresses health status, risk factors and overall lifestyle questions. How long people commute to and from work, diet, smoking and alcohol consumption are some of the questions.

When it comes to planning a community’s health and social services, a ‘one size fits all’ approach does not always work. Within cities, neighbourhoods are unique, varying by factors like commuting options, opportunities for physical activity, ease of accessing grocery stores, and the residents sense of belonging, just to name a few. Fraser Health needs more people to complete the My Health My Community survey in order to understand these neighbourhood differences and work with local governments and organizations to respond accordingly. “This will give Maple Ridge specific data that the city will not get through any other means,” said Mu. “I’m really, really encouraging Maple Ridge to take advantage of this opportunity.” Even people’s feelings belonging to their community are some of the detailed information that can be gathered

through such a survey. “We know that a sense of social connectedness is an indicator for health and well being,” Mu said. Fraser health will also target demographic groups who are less likely to be able to answer an online survey, and will solicit their written responses. Survey teams will be out in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, and other Valley communities. The information collected through the survey can be used to shape future community programs and services. Information about things such as busy roads, neighbourhood safety or nearby green spaces can help planners plot traffic patterns, parks or community facilities, and data on smoking and obesity patterns can aid health authorities in targeting disease prevention programs. • The survey can be completed at www. myhealthmycommunity.org in English or Chinese.

‘Good’ Guilty from front

The victim went once to court, but after having to be searched for weapons, and being uncomfortable in the presence of Richardson and his family members, he did not back. “Good,” was his reac-

tion to the verdict. The older victim expressed reservations about Richardson’s mental state, saying he has received disturbing letters from his assailant. The tone of the letters was not apologetic, but rather included a poem “like love birds would send in high school.”

Richardson has a history of legal problems that include offences and breaching court orders, and has been accused of a sex assault against a middle-aged man as recently as 2012. Richardson was accused of sexually assaulting a roommate, another middle-aged man, in

2009. In 2010, RCMP issued a public warning to transit users, noting that the sex offender was handing out business cards to young male bus riders. Police said he targeted young men with mental health issues. A date for sentencing will be set on May 29.

Says Hyundai: “Performance of the vehicle’s all-new platform was validated in some of the world’s most demanding driving environments, including Germany’s famed Nürburgring Nordschleife and Korea’s Yeongam Formula 1 racing circuit.” The large variety of proving grounds offered by the northern Okanagan was much more appealing to me.

Chev Impala is a handsome beast By Zack Spencer

buyers prefer them for long distance cruising and the road-hugging stance that a sedan provides. There are some very good choices out there and the latest is the all-new Chevrolet Impala. The previous Impala was a favourite for company sales fleets and rental car companies, with a minority of buyers choosing them for personal transportation.

C

anadians love smaller vehicles: the best selling passenger vehicles are compact cars and compact SUVs. But as much as we like to keep things sensible, there is always a place for larger vehicles. Full-size sedans are not big sellers, but some

Consumer Reports recently rated the Chevrolet Impala as one of the best cars it has ever tested.

• Looks: This is a very handsome car. I can clearly remember seeing for the first time over a year ago at the New York Auto Show and it was the standout of that event. This new design is striking on several levels. The front design has the signature Chevrolet split grille that was so warmly received on this car that they borrowed it and graphed it into the smaller Malibu. The side has sweeping front windshield and rear window with a high rear deck that provides a sleek silhouette. Prices start at just over $28,000 and the 2LT is fitted with the V6 engine and starts at almost $33,000. • Inside: It looks and works well, showcasing what GM is doing right. The mixture of materials shapes and colours really makes this cabin pop. The seats can be covered in cloth on the base car, faux suede seats or leather on the top models. The dash is covered in soft touch materials; I especially like the textured aluminum look around the window buttons and cup holders. The MyLink infotainment system is easy to use and the graphics look good and the screen pops up for access to the hidden storage area with a USB jack. Standard features include tilt and telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, USB, eight-way power driver’s seat and more. The back seat might be the best part of this car. The legroom has limo like dimensions and the space side-to-side and headroom

is ample. The trunk is also huge with a fold down rear seat, providing more space than many small SUVs. Drive The Impala is now offered with a four-cylinder or V6. The base engine is a 2.5L with direct injection unit and 195hp. My test Impala didn’t have this engine but I have used this new engine in the Malibu and I was very impressed with it then, one of the best new engines I have used. The V6 engine is a 3.6L direct injection unit with a potent 305hp. Both are matched to a six-speed automatic that can be shifted manually but the shifter is on top of the knob, not the best place. The big car platform and independent suspension makes for a sure-footed ride with almost luxury car feel. The road feel is there, but never intrusive. This big sedan can actually handle rather well. Not the choice for a backcountry road excursions but stable and secure feeling. • Verdict: Consumer Reports recently rated this one of the best cars it has ever tested, right behind the Tesla Model S and BMW 135i. This new Impala does everything a big car buyer is looking for: it cruises with ease, has more than enough room for five full size adults and the interior is quiet and refined. Once main criticism of this new car is the lack of an all wheel drive system, but hopefully it will not be relegated to fleet sales and rental lots. • Sticker price: $28,445$39,645.

driveway Carrier of the Week It’s big, heavy and light on fuel either. And behind the third row of seats, there’s a cargo capacity of 385L. It’s an accommodating vehicle. So when I knew that I’d be logging more than 1,000 kilometres in a week, perhaps you���d think I’m a little crazy to want to take this (relatively) heavy and large SUV along for the ride. Normally, I would. But there’s a word in its name that made me want to take this beauty of a beast for the long haul: hybrid. As I entered the Flaxen-adorned cabin, I

reached for the “Eco Mode” button underneath the redesigned centre stack. I gave that a push. The Eco mode is a feature that lessens the throttle response in an effort to help save fuel. You can still do all your normal daily driving duties, it just helps you keep money where it should be: in your wallet. And keeps the fuel where it should be: in the tank. Granted, in Eco Mode, it doesn’t give you the peppy acceleration you might like. Then again, if prompt acceleration is what you’re after, skip the Eco Mode Follow us at:

The “Eco Mode” feature lessens the throttle response in an effort to help save fuel. and that’s exactly what you’ll get. Whether I was driving in the city or on the highway, the Highlander has a smoothness to it that makes me love being behind the wheel. It cruises effortlessly atop the pavement and makes the driver and passengers feel at ease, especially when you know you’re going the distance. I even had one passenger say to me, “If we were in here any longer, I could’ve fallen asleep. It’s that comfortable. The suspension is composed of front Macpherson struts and a rear double wishbone type, trailing arms set up. Toyota gets an A-plus for ride comfort. And it’s arguably one of the best in its class. Aiding in establishing a serene setting is a host of creature comforts like heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, second row captain’s chairs, easy access to the third row, keyless entry, navigation, an eight-inch touchscreen and much more. We’ve already established its size, and while it fits up to seven, it doesn’t feel that big to drive. Sure, you need to make sure you watch its width, but maneuvering it around in parking lots isn’t a chore at all. Thanks to its rack and pinion-type, electric power steering, you can move around graciously. Though this is not my first hybrid SUV that I’ve tested, I am always excited to see how well these machines perform in regards to fuel economy. After all, there’s a 3.5L,

V6 engine under the hood, which is then matched with an electric motor, a Sealed Nickel-Metal Hydride battery and an Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT). The result is a net 280 horsepower. There’s also a 1,587 kg (3,500 lbs.) towing capacity. Looking at the estimated fuel results, it’s rated at 6.8L/100km in the city and 7.2L/100km on the highway. Keep in mind the aforementioned stats about its size and weight and those numbers are really impressive. My real world numbers? A combined average of 8.9L/100km. Not bad. Not bad at all. Most of my driving was done on the highway, so the hybrid system doesn’t have a chance to run off electricity alone at those speeds. Oh, and it’s all-wheel drive. Sun or snow, this SUV is ready for it all. With fuel prices hovering around the $1.50/litre mark, the more kilometres I can get out of a tank, the better. And the Highlander Hybrid made me a very happy gal. The conclusion: The 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited AWD is competent, potent and a fabulous sport utility vehicle even in Eco Mode, where the fun is a little bit restricted. The MSRP for the 2014 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited AWD is $52,695. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

A charming country lifestyle at Village Green By Kerry Vital

Relaxation and a neighbourly feel are the words of the day at Village Green, a quiet enclave in Maple Ridge that’s been appealing to buyers of all demographics. “It’s like a little English village,” says sales manager Jeanie Fox. “It’s a really nice community.” The two-level townhomes are built in a West Coast Architecture style, and are surrounded by plenty of green

space. Each home has a fenced yard, making them perfect for families and those looking to have a bit of green space of their own. “It’s a beautiful setting,” says Fox. “You can cook dinner in your kitchen while watching your kids play in the yard right outside.” Inside, the spacious three-bedroom floorplans, ranging from 1,246 to 1,382 square feet, include laminate hardwood flooring, nine-foot ceilings on the main floor and quartz countertops

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT

and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen. The master ensuite bathroom is spa-inspired, with a full frameless glass shower and oversized shower head. “These are very good finishings,” Fox says. “You also get a great value for your money. It’s just incredible.” Phase one is currently selling, and the second phase will be released soon. When complete, the nine-acre site will hold 105 townhomes. Homeowners have already started moving in, with more to come in the fall. “We wanted to offer homes that felt like a single-family residence, at townhome affordability, and in fact the majority of our buyers have claimed this as one of their top reasons for purchasing there,” says Fox. Homes at Village Green start at $302,900. For more information, visit www.villagegreenlife.ca, call 604-476-2292 or visit the presentation centre at 12161 237th Street, Maple Ridge, open 12 to 5 p.m. every day except Fridays.

Camden at The Falls, the first release of single-family homes built around The Falls golf course in Chilliwack, will have beautiful views from every home, including the rolling greens of the golf course, right, and over the surrounding area, below.

Dream homes at Camden at The Falls By Kerry Vital

Aquilini Development is bringing their master-planned community building expertise to Chilliwack with The Falls, an envisioned community of over 500 homes, set to be built around The Falls Golf Club. Camden, their first release of just 47 singlefamily homes, offers a little piece of paradise for as low as $389,900. “You walk out your door and you’re on the golf course, with rolling greens and panoramic views,” says Macartney Greenfield, project manager for Rennie Marketing Systems. “There aren’t a lot of projects that

can offer that resort-style living.” The response has been overwhelming, Greenfield says. Floorplans range from 1,336 to 3,176 square feet, and each comes with a large double-car garage with tons of room for storage. The master-on-main floorplans have been particularly popular, Greenfield says. There is also a rancher floorplan available. Buyers will have a vast array of choices when it comes to customizing their new home, including six different home types and elevation styles, eight exterior colour schemes and two interior colour schemes. There are also several interior and exterior upgrade options available. The location is one of the biggest draws for Camden at The Falls. “People are amazed by how beautiful it is here,” Greenfield says. “It’s nestled into the side of the mountain with breathtaking views in every direction.” To take advantage of the views, the homes have spacious covered decks and oversized

windows. Nine-foot ceilings in the main living areas add to the airy feeling. Laminate wood flooring is included throughout the main living areas, with porcelain tile in the bathrooms and low-pile carpeting in the bedrooms. A gas fireplace in the living room is perfect for cozying up to in the colder weather, and a rough-in for a wet bar is included in some homes, making entertaining easy. The kitchen is gourmet and refined, with stainless-steel appliances, shaker-style wood stained or flat-panel cabinetry and laminate countertops. A convenient kitchen island creates extra space, with pendant lighting above illuminating your tasks. A full-height walk-in pantry with built-in shelving is another convenient feature that demonstrates Aquilini’s commitment to their homeowners. The master ensuite features a tempered glass shower enclosure and separate tub, with double sinks for plenty of his-and-hers space. Every home comes with a two-year

membership to The Falls Golf Club, with additional discounts for the pro shop, restaurant and ongoing green fees. It truly is a golfer’s dream come true! The Aquilini name has held a lot of weight for buyers at Camden at The Falls. “Aquilini has strong local roots and is very committed to this community,” says Greenfield. “You have the confidence factor of buying from a builder known for large developments and master-planned communities.” Homeowners won’t have to venture very far from their home to find anything they need. “This is a very central community,” says Greenfield. “There’s a great school at the bottom of the hill, and you’re less than 10 minutes from Chilliwack.” Trails, lakes and other outdoor recreation opportunities are also plentiful here. For more information, visit www. livethefalls.com, call 604-794-5722 or stop by the presentation centre at 8361 Nixon Road, Chilliwack, open 12 to 5 p.m. daily except Tuesdays, or by appointment.

End frustrations by organizing garage

I

By Robert Prince

s your home’s garage a place for your car or a place for your stuff?

If you’re like most of the clients garage guru Camilla Brown deals with, chances are your stuff has long since pushed the car out the door – or is very close to it – and you’re not happy about it. Brown is owner of West Coast Dream Garage, a company that specializes in helping people re-claim their garage by making it functional and aesthetically pleasing. She’s helped countless homeowners overcome the challenge of having a garage that is just a disorganized storage facility. “The biggest problem for so many people is they can’t find things they know they have,” says Brown. Eventually, she says, most people get tired of the frustration, and that’s when she gets called. “The calls I get are typically from women who can’t stand looking at the mess anymore,” says Brown. “The men are usually on board [with the project], but they don’t want to deal with it themselves or they don’t have the time.” Brown says there are plenty of things people can do on their own to get the same results, if they’re on a budget.

“The calls I get are typically from women who can’t stand looking at the mess anymore.” Camilla Brown, West Coast Dream Garage Brown says any good garage makeover starts from the floor up, because filling cracks, cleaning the floor, painting, and sealing it with a reflective, anti-stain protective coating always does wonders for brightening up a garage, and for making it look bigger. Once the floor is done, tackle the walls. She recommends investing in a slat wall system that gets stuff up off the floors and off deep shelves so it can be seen and easily identified. There

Camilla Brown, designer with West Coast Dream Garage, has installed HandiWALL, a cellular PVC slat wall that makes it easy to hang everything from power tools, rakes, bicycles and cabinets, in her garage.

are various systems that can be found for about $500. The goal is to get rid of the boxes that tend to hide stuff, so it can’t be found again. You won’t be able to do away completely with cupboards and boxes, says Brown, but she notes that, as a general rule of thumb, it’s safe to say that anything that can be seen gets used, and anything that can’t, isn’t. If you determine you do need cupboards, and you want to save money, Brown recommends getting them second-hand from a garage sale or the Internet. Once you have your wall system, benches and cupboards in place, start organizing. Like items should be grouped together – tools in one place, toys in another, bicycles hung, unused tires wall mounted. If you do need a box, says Brown, make it

single purpose – balls, for instance, or sports equipment. Do try to avoid them, however, because they tend to become excuses to hide stuff that you don’t really need in the long run. They also make it difficult to find things later – and half the reason you’re doing this in the first place is because you can’t find your stuff now. When you start arranging your belongings, make sure they’re accessible to everyone who needs them. Kids stuff should be easy to reach so they can get it, and put it away, quickly. Same for adults. A good tip, says the garage guru, is to plan the space before you start putting things away. You’ll save a lot of time, and everything will feel that much better in the end. Another trick is to get rid of stuff you really don’t need.

“If you buy a new drill, get rid of the old one,” Brown advises. “Don’t put it in a drawer because you ‘might need it for parts’ one day. Chances are your neighbour is keeping one for parts anyway, so let him store it, and get the parts from him when you need them.” If you’re doing the job yourself, you’ll have to spend some time on it – 10 to 12 hours, Brown figures – but you’ll definitely save money. You’ll also be very happy you did the deed, because an organized garage is definitely a thing of beauty. And, if you’re selling your home, a garage that is bright (because you added new lights), has a new floor, and is organized could well make the difference for a potential buyer trying to decide between two homes that are otherwise equal. Brown says getting your garage organized and looking good also pays dividends in saving time relieving stress.

(*) For homes selling over $600,000, our commission structure is 1% of the sale price + $950 (+ GST).

sports@mapleridgenews.com

by Nei l Corbe tt Black Press

T

he newlook Maple Ridge Burrards get back on the floor on Sunday. “We’ve got a new look as far as new uniforms go, and new faces, and a new head coach,” noted general manager Daren Fridge. The biggest change will be Frankie Scigliano. It’s “big” any time you make a change at the one position that is on the floor the entire game. And big, too, because Scigliano is a mountain of a goaltender. At six-foot-four and 290 pounds, he makes Milan Lucic look like a wimp. Scigliano is the rare goaltender who was drafted in the first round of the WLA entry draft. “He’s someone we’re looking to count on, to make a difference,” said Fridge. Last year the Burrards ranked last in the league in save percentage, and second last in goals against average, and have said farewell to veteran Chris Levis. He is a veteran with 11 seasons in the National Lacrosse League, but is now 38 years old. Scigliano may not make opening night, because he is playing pro lacrosse with the NLL’s Calgary Roughnecks, in his second season as a backup. The team’s leading scorer, league MVP Curtis Dickson, is also with the Roughnecks, and may not be around for the opener, depending on how their playoffs progress.

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

The Maple Ridge Burrards open their new WLA campaign against the Nanaimo Timbermen on Sunday, at 6:45 p.m. at Planet Ice. Dickson will be challenged to lead the league in scoring again this year – because he will only play eight to 10 games. He has been chosen to play for the national field lacrosse team at the world championships in Denver, Col. It’s a huge honour, and to get ready, Dickson will play some outdoor games with the Denver Outlaws. He will be around for the WLA playoffs.

Reegan Comeault of Pitt Meadows, who plays for Ohio State, wants to play box lacrosse this summer, and the Burrards were able to trade for his rights from the Nanaimo Timbermen for two non-roster players. Fridge said Comeault is stocky with quick feet. “He can create his own chances, and he has a cannon of an outside shot.” Scigliano wasn’t the only

upgrade that the Burrards made in their own end of the rink. During the offseason, the they swung a deal with the Coquitlam Adanacs, sending them forward Jaeden Gastaldo, Ridge’s secondround pick in the 2013 draft, for Travis Irving – a six-footfour, 220-pound defender, with 25 WLA games under his belt. Daniel McDermott out

of Delta Junior Am was the team’s second-round pick in the entry draft. He plays for the New York Institute of Technology, and was the defensive player of the year in the conference. He plays transition. Former team captain Tyler Codron took a year off from the WLA to begin his career as a Burnaby firefighter. He’s back, and coach Chris Gill calls him “a huge presence.”

“Hard-nosed, smart and keeps it calm and cool down there.” Last year the team got off to a fast 5-2 start, and were the talk of the league, but then plunged into a deep funk that saw the team finish 8-10 and miss the playoffs. Everyone’s confident this year will be different, and a new head coach is a big part of that. “The new voice make a big difference,” said Fridge. “He [Gill] has grown up around the game, and has seen a lot of scenarios.” With more size on defence, Gill plans to use it. “We’re hoping to be a tough team to play against.” The new coach has put in a new offensive system. He’s not tipping his hand about what it’ll look like, but says fans will see the Burrards maintaining possession of the ball. “Too many teams give the ball away too much,” maintains Gill. The defensive system has been revamped, with a new emphasis on teamwork. “The guys are loving it,” said Gill of early season. “They’re jacked up and excited, and working hard.” Gill hopes to make a good first impression against Nanaimo. “You want to put a good show on in Game One.” The first game of the season will be Sunday at 6:45 p.m. at Planet Ice. It will open with minor lacrosse appreciation, with a barbecue at 4 p.m., and activities including a hardest shot contest and dunk tank.

Youth soccer denies new Albion FC club New association appeals to BC soccer by Neil Corbet t staff reporter

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

Heads-up hockey Ryan Tougas of the Giants passes the ball before Hannah Stark can catch him on the backcheck during a recent peewee ball hockey game.

The proposed new soccer association Albion FC has been denied its application for membership in the Alouette District Youth Soccer Association. Mike Smith, one of the founders of the new association, said an appeal has already been launched with B.C. Soccer, based on conflict of interest. The ADYSA maintains that the decision was made by an independent committee that has no affiliation with the West Coast Auto Group FC, Mission Soccer Club or Albion FC. In its decision, the committee noted “Albion FC willfully chose not to participate in this process.” The committee said Albion FC did not offer a business plan, has no

elected board members, and did not have verified rosters of at least four teams. The committee said a new club would threaten the viability of the Mission Soccer Club, and could poach players from “the existing club” (WCAGFC). Answering some of the criticism, Smith said Albion FC has a list of elected members, and has more than enough players to meet the team requirements. He said the minimum roster requirements seem to be at odds with poaching fears. Smith agreed he was loath to submit marketing plans to the committee. “Would you give your business plan to your competitor?” He said Albion FC will not harm any other club. “We would like to see this go, because there is a real community outcry for this,” said Smith. “If the kids are having fun and staying fit, that’s the end game.”

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS

JAMES BRENDEN PICUL July 9, 1986 - May 19, 2013 James was taken from us all much too early in his young life, leaving broken hearts in so many friends and family. James loved to ride his bikes, go four-wheeling and raise hell everywhere he could, as long as it meant having fun, and no set of tires were safe. We think of you every moment of every day James. We dream of you, we talk and laugh as we tell your stories. We love you so much James and we will miss you until the day we see you again. With all our love son. Fallen but not Forgotten Love Mom, Dad and Zeus

It’s true what they say, when a child is born, a parent’s heart is no longer their own, It runs and skips and giggles and grins, And crawls in their lap, for a kiss on the chin, But where goes their heart, when that child is gone, Is it true what they say, that life goes on. The years have come and gone & the clock still ticks on, Does the passage of time mean it should make sense, Can loss be measured in time increments. As we yearn for the day when we could see our son, Is it true what they say, that life goes on. We still breathe in and out and arise every day, And work, and struggle, and yes, even play, Things will get better, I’ve been told many times, But “different” is the status for those left behind, Time can’t heal all wounds nor break all bonds, Can it be true what they say, that life goes on. In the air and wind, we feel your strong embrace, And your kisses from butterflies that land on our face, We see your smile in the beams of the sun, The twinkle of your eyes now shines in Eden, And we hear your laugh in the lyrics of song, Thoughts of all our yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, Are all remembered and the fun we had. Is it true what they say, that life goes on. Not a day do we forget you And our faces are not always sad, There is never a night or morning That we don’t think of the son we had. In our hearts you are always here, For we loved you and miss you As it ends the nineteenth year. Is it possibly true, that life goes on. We miss and love you STEVEN our son Yes - it’s true what they say, that life does go on. Love, Mom, Dad, Shannon and Granny
