Prime minister drops by airport ‘Fear’ a theme of Harper’s message to voters By Phil M elnyc h u k email@example.com
ear about the future under anything but a Conservative government dominated a surprise visit by Prime Minister Stephen Harper at Pitt Meadows Regional Airport on Tuesday. Harper stopped at Sky Helicopters for a party rally and championed his federal government’s financial record and the possible risk of any departure from it. Mike Murray, Conservative candidate for Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge, kicked off the event by warming up the crowd. See Election, 3

Prime Minister Stephen Harper speaks to Conservative supporters at Pitt Meadows Regional Airport on Tuesday.
Prison mother-baby unit unused Has not been occupied since reinstated last year By Neil Corbett firstname.lastname@example.org
Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton visited the wing after it reopened in June 2014.
The mother-baby unit at Alouette Correctional Centre for Women reopened last summer, as ordered by the courts, but has not been used since. The B.C. Supreme Court ruled, after a five-year legal battle, that closing the mother-baby program in 2008 violated the rights of the inmates and their babies. Complying with a court order, the program restarted in June 2014. In the 14 months since then, four babies have been born to inmates of ACCW, but none have been in the mother-baby unit. Two inmates who delivered ba-
bies while incarcerated at ACCW were given early release. This summer, two women who gave birth while serving time at the prison had their babies immediately taken into the foster care system. A group of professional women who fought in court to have the program reinstated helped draw up a process for creating a mother-baby program in any women’s prison. Members were stunned to learn that the ACCW inmates had their babies taken from them. “We were just aghast,” said Dr. Ruth Martin, who served as a doctor at ACCW. Members of the group assumed the program was reinstated, with the B.C. Supreme Court ruling that the women and their babies rights were violated when the parenting unit closed.
“You would want to welcome babies to be with their mothers,” she said. “We had all been waiting to see these babies in the unit.” Brenda Tole was the warden at ACCW from the time it opened in 2004 until her retirement in 2008. The new prison administration closed the mother-baby program after she left. It is an ongoing issue. ACCW has averaged about four babies born to inmates per year. In the six years the program was closed, 23 inmates who gave birth had their children placed in foster care, until the courts ruled the program must be reinstated. Tole was heavily involved in the trial, and saddened when the babies went to foster care. “I was just disheartened,” said Tole. “I know the government wasn’t happy about losing that court decision, but it was a court
decision …” Not only is taking a baby away from an incarcerated mother cruel and unusual punishment, Tole said the courts have ruled that it violates both of their charter rights. In her career in corrections, she never came across a more positive program. “It was a marvelous effort – good from a health perspective and good from a correctional perspective,” she said. She said the babies were not compromised in any way by starting their lives in a prison, and the women she observed were good moms. “They did a very, very good job of taking care of their kids,” she said. “And the babies thrived there. It wasn’t a harsh environment at all.” See Prison, 14

Keep our economy on track: Harper Election from front
“Today, we live in a dangerous world, an uncertain world, that threatens our economy, our prosperity and our jobs and everything that depends on those things, our families and those we love,” Murray said. Seconds later, Harper entered the helicopter hangar to the sounds of blaring rock music, and continued the theme. “This election is a call to action to protect our economy, to protect our country … to get through this time of increased global, economic insecurity. By joining us this afternoon, you have answered that call,” Harper said. “Nothing is more important than the security of our country and the security of our economy.” A balanced budget and prudent spending will ensure that government benefits continue and more jobs, Harper added. Harper said that global economic instability is a serious risk for Canada, for B.C. and for individuals. The wrong decision on taxes and on the deficit will increase those risks. After repeating that the “world is an unstable and dangerous place,” and that the global economy is in turmoil, Harper cited Europe’s high government spending has resulted in the loss of thousands of jobs. But the Conservatives’ long-term, low-tax plan “is the plan that Canada needs for the next four years.” Harper said Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and NDP leader Thomas Mulcair are outspending the

The City of Maple Ridge was not invited to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s visit at Pitt Meadows airport. Conservatives with their election promises. He said under previous Liberal governments, deficits went on for 30 years. It only ended with tax increases and cuts to health care and seniors. “They messed it up the first time. Let’s not give them another
chance,” he said. “And then there’s the NDP,” who he said have made promises of $35 billion a year, to be paid for by modest tax increases. “You have seen the NDP in action twice [in B.C.] in the last 40 years.” Each time was economic disaster he said.
In 1990, “B.C. became a have-not province in confederation,” Harper added. He also said both opposition parties intend on increasing taxes, particularly CPP contributions. That would cost an average worker another $1,000 a year. “In this time of global economic
instability, the NDP and the Liberals would take our economy off track. “For Canadian families … there’s a lot at risk, a lot to think about,” he said. “If we mismanage our economy, especially in face of all this instability in the economy around the world, then we can’t afford anything else.” On the other hand, the Conservatives have increased the child tax benefit, and contributions to tax free savings accounts. He said the government made contributions to local infrastructure, such as the Evergreen Line and the $500,000 contribution to the Albion sports complex in Maple Ridge, without raising taxes. “We will make sure keep our borders and country,” continuing to be part of the fight against ISIS, he added. The largest cheer and standing ovation came when Harper announced that Canada would continue to support Israel’s right to exist. Liberal MLAs Doug Bing and Marc Dalton were at the gathering along with Pitt Meadows Mayor John Becker. However, Maple Ridge Mayor Nicole Read was left off the guest list. “I think our council, regardless of political affiliation, should have been extended the invitation to be there,” Read said. “I really don’t know why that invitation wasn’t extended.” The City of Maple Ridge is hosting a debate that will involve the federal candidates.
Candidates cautious about making promises Election is going to be won on the ground: NDP By Phil M elnyc h u k email@example.com
So far, only one federal candidate in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge has taken the daring plunge. Green candidate Peter Tam has gone out on a limb and said that he supports improving city roads and sewers, and that he is in favour of affordable housing, policing and the environment. Tam did so by supporting the Federation of Canadian Municipalities as part of its Hometown Proud Campaign that is trying to raise the profile of local issues with federal politicians. “Sometimes, you can’t separate the different levels of government,” said Tam. “At the end of
the day, we’re supposed to be there to represent the community.” Cities are the engines for local jobs, growth and sustainable environments, says the federation. It wants to keep that in candidates’ minds by having them support the FCM’s commitment and promise to support cities. In order to make such promises even more palatable for politicians, the federation adds a disclaimer in fine print, telling the politicians that don’t worry, “in compliance with Section 550 of the Canada Elections Act, your … commitment to these election issues ends on polling day and places no obligation on you to follow a particular course of action either now or in the future.” But so far, no other candidates have made such bold promises. “I don’t think they have to worry about being
too partisan or that,” Tam added. Liberals, NDP and Conservatives all say they won’t make promises or sign pledges guaranteeing or supporting any particular cause when or if they’re elected. Liberal Dan Ruimy said he’s received about 20 requests to sign his support for various causes. “Since I joined this race, we’ve received numerous e-mails from so many organizations.” He said he’ll listen to groups and wants to understand their issues and requests, but he won’t sign pledges or make promises. “I will take the time to sit down and talk to people. I’m not going to run away.” But, “I can’t make a promise that I don’t know I can keep.” Conservative candidate Mike Murray said the same thing, by e-mail. “I don’t sign pledges but you can be assured that if elected, I will dedicate myself to work
with all levels of government for the best interest of our two great communities.” Bob D’Eith, with the NDP, said the same as his Liberal competitor: there are just too many requests seeking a candidate’s support. “I’m not signing pledges. That’s not to say I’m not supportive of what they’re doing.” Both Liberals and NDP candidates said the campaign was going well. “Our numbers are growing everyday,” said D’Eith. “We’ve been knocking on doors all summer. The election is going to be won on the ground … ” The NDP opened their campaign office Monday night. Ruimy said his campaign signs arrive this week. “We’re getting lots of support, lots of traction,” adding that he’ll win the riding.

PUBLIC NOTICE Notice of Intention to Further Amend Council Procedures Bylaw
NDP: Harper brought out to shore up softening support
In accordance with Section 124(3) of the Community Charter, the Council of the City of Maple Ridge gives notice of its intention to further amend the Maple Ridge Council Procedures Bylaw 6472-2007. Maple Ridge Council Procedure Amending Bylaw No. 7174-2015 proposes updates to Part 9 â€“ Designation of Member to Act in Place of Mayor and Part 20 â€“ Committee of the Whole, Standing & Select Committees.
Candidate accuses prime minister of running fear campaign
The proposed changes enable the Mayor to designate a Councillor to serve as the Acting Mayor to act in place of the Mayor when the Mayor is absent, unable to act or when the office of the Mayor is vacant. The Acting Mayor shall be referred to as the Deputy Mayor. The Mayor may rescind a memberâ€™s designation as Acting Mayor at any time and appoint another Council member to serve as Acting Mayor. The Mayor will designate Councillors to serve on a rotating basis as the member responsible for acting as the presiding member at the Committee of the Whole meetings.
When the NDP heard that Prime Minister Stephen Harper was coming to town, it wasnâ€™t all doom and gloom with the local candidate and campaign team having to take on the Conservative leader and prime minister. â€œWe were happy with that. We take that as a positive sign,â€? because it means the NDP are gaining in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge and the Conservatives â€“ represented by Mike Murray â€“ needed some help, says Dâ€™Eith. Dâ€™Eith challenged several points Harper made Tuesday at Pitt Meadows airport, saying NDP provincial governments have a better record of balanced budgets than Conservative governments. Canada is the only G-8 country thatâ€™s in recession and has relied too much on ener-

gy to fuel the economy, he pointed out. Under NDP premier Tommy Douglas, Saskatchewan had 18 balanced budgets, while under Harper, Canada has lost 450,000 manufacturing jobs, Dâ€™Eith added. And 80 per cent of jobs are created by small business, which is why the NDP wants to reduce the tax to nine per cent at a faster rate than the Conservatives. â€œHe really has to get his facts straight.â€? Dâ€™Eith also challenged Harperâ€™s foreign policy, saying as a Canadian, he was embarrassed by the government. The NDP opposes Canadaâ€™s participation in the air war against Islamic State, while the Conservatives continue to champion it. â€œI donâ€™t think the solution is to drop more bombs. A lot of the problems that are being created â€Ś you create people that oppose
you and you create people like ISIS.â€? Dâ€™Eith said the Conservatives are emphasizing fear. â€œThe Harper government is about fear, period. They are selling fear. They are creating a sense of fear in Canadians. The NDP is not running on fear.â€? Green party candidate Peter Tam didnâ€™t want to challenge particular points about the Conservative campaign. â€œEvery party has things they want to say,â€? he said. â€œWe need to govern as a science and factbased society.â€? His party opposes federal scientists being unable to speak to the public and wants to see a return to the longform census so the government has accurate numbers on which to base policy. And heâ€™s still upset that Green party leader Elizabeth May was shut out of Thursdayâ€™s debate and said the other leaders may not have wanted her because she would have challenged them on
any statements that were not factual. â€œWeâ€™re seeing fundamental flaws in our democracy. Thatâ€™s our biggest concern at the moment.â€? Independent candidate Steve Ranta said much of Canadaâ€™s deficit results from a shift away in the 1970s to using the Bank of Canada to fund infrastructure projects at zero per cent. He cited the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform, which wants to return to that.
â€œI donâ€™t think the solution is to drop more bombs.â€? Bob Dâ€™Eith, NDP candidate
â€œCanada is rapidly becoming a have-not country under the Conservatives.â€? In the last election in 2011, Conservatives easily won the riding, earning 10,000 more votes than the NDP.

35th TF Run this Sunday New route starts in Pitt Meadows By Phi l M elnyc h u k firstname.lastname@example.org
f it rains this Sunday, don’t complain, just get out there and keep in mind that a mild damper on the B.C. coast in September is nothing compared an April to Newfoundland, where Terry Fox began his Marathon of Hope in 1980. For this, the 35th anniversary of the Terry Fox Run, organizer Ali Wakeling is hoping for a good turnout. “We anticipate it to be rainy, but we don’t want that to stop anybody because certainly the weather never stopped Terry. “We expect a minimum of 250 people. It’s really dependent on the weather,” Wakeling added. Last year, the run drew 427 participants raising $16,497 for the foundation. To go along with a major milestone of the event, the Terry Fox Run in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows has a new route, starting from Spirit Square park on Harris Road near the Pitt Meadows family recreation centre. Runners will pro-
ceed down Harris Road to Hammond Road and continue to Maple Ridge to ensure both communities are included. Registration, which begins at 8:30 a.m., can now be done indoors and there will be machines available to accept credit card donations. To fire up the crowd for the 10 a.m. start, Terry’s niece, Kirsten Fox will be speaking. She’s the daughter of Terry’s brother Fred, who lives in Maple Ridge. “It’s going to be a really great day. How can it not be? It’s for Terry Fox,” added Donna White, from the Terry Fox Foundation headquarters. White is a breast cancer survivor and grew up in Surrey and remembers when Terry set out from his Port Coquitlam home to run across the country. Her dad was on a road crew at the time and saw Terry when he was training. She’s now been with the foundation for 10 years and never tires talking about Terry. “I go to work for my hero every day,” she added. While many involved in the run now weren’t even alive when Terry began his run, the message is being carried
through the generations, White said. “You can walk through elementary schools and see kids excited.” Kids are learning from Terry’s example of perseverance and determination and the selflessness of what he set out to do. “You can do anything you set your mind to. He did his very best.” The goal this year is to raise $35 million nationwide, which works out to a dollar from every Canadian, the same goal Terry had when he began

New style The new school year is officially underway. Even if you don’t have kids in the education system, there is still this sense that summer fun is behind us and now we must get down to business. Roads are busier and so are everyone’s lives. Parents begin their everyday scramble of getting kids to and from school safely. For some young ones, this week marks their entry into the school system. For older ones, they are entering into middle or high school. Classrooms are clean and bright, with teachers and administrators rolling out the welcome mat. While education is always evolving – big changes are coming as to how teachers teach. The stereotypical model of educators standing in front of the classroom lecturing while students follow along from textbooks is transforming. Instead, classrooms will be interactive with teachers discovering individual student’s passions. Teachers will direct and fuel those interests on a new learning path. It’s welcome change for students who don’t thrive in the traditional classroom setting. If teachers can tap into what individual students get excited about, the potential to unlock their brains from boredom and turn that into drive and passion is exciting news. The school district is already preparing for the changes and teachers are adapting their teaching style to this new way of reaching students. There are no two students alike. Some children thrive on tests and report deadlines – others crash and burn. Change is hard for all, but this is a directive coming from the government that parents and students should support. Individual learning has the potential to unlock bright minds which can make for a bright future. Our future leaders and innovators are in our schools. – Black Press

oon, Monday. Still no power. On Sunday, Hydro promised electricity by 11:30 p.m. I followed a flashlight to Along the Fraser the bedroom and went Jack Emberly to sleep. For me, the blackout was an inconvenience. For others, it was scary, and costly. Saturday morning, Aug. 29. Left the farmer’s market before the 89 km/h winds struck. By noon, the fire department would receive 100 calls about the unnerving sound of moaning trees, 12 that fell on houses and buildings, damaged power lines and closed roads. Eileen Dwillies, the market manager, was forewarned. “Maple Ridge emergency program coordinator Patrick Cullen gave us a 20-minute warning, she told me. “Our regular vendors had weighted down their tents, but new people weren’t ready. Canopies went flying, glass vases broke. One vendor threw out food because leaves and stuff got into it.” I live by a greenbelt. A neighbor paced in the street, eyes fixed on a row of hemlocks that swayed in all directions. A few years ago,
uestion of the week:
one fell through the roof of the house next to hers. Its only occupant was shaken up, but unhurt. There are two big cedars near my house. They’ve withstood the high winds of November and February. Will a drought and Godzilla storms this winter be too much for them? Saturday afternoon. The hemlocks are corkscrewing. Suddenly, there’s a sickening crack. One implodes at the base and falls on a townhouse. My neighbor races to help. “No one was injured,” she reports, “but lots of damage.” Saturday night. Residents and businesses west of 207th Street are dark. A few were prepared. Many weren’t. Marcelle, at Bodhi, a new natural foods market on 207th, said the lost was $100,000; food safety regulations meant perishables couldn’t be donated because Bodhi had to wait for the insurance company to document the product loss. Even then, only 50 per cent was covered by insurance, Marcelle added. Hydro has apologized for its communication. When its website crashed, many got news from Twitter. Businesses – thinking their financial loss might expedite communication – were frustrated. “It made no difference if you were calling from a business, or a home,” one supermarket manager told me. “I punched in my address, and waited.” Homeowners like Pat in Whonnock won-

dered why her neighbor’s house had power, and hers didn’t. “Then, they called and asked me if my lights were on. Didn’t they know?” There must be ways to avoid wasting food during power outages. Food banks threw out stock they’ll struggle to replace. Seniors and families rely on it. Many schools could use some for kids on school breakfast and lunch programs. It could go to church supper programs. Hopefully, Hydro will think about this when it discusses its new plan of communication, a process that should involve municipalities, key service agencies, and organizations like GETI . Twelve roads were closed in Maple Ridge on Aug. 29. Next time, it could be the major arteries. Food and supplies might have to be barged up the Fraser and Pitt rivers or brought in by rail. Are plans in place? Last Monday, strong winds grounded sailboats at Locarno Beach. Another El Nino is warming the Pacific Ocean, a fact that guarantees strong winds this winter. Will Hydro and our cities be prepared? Sunday. Still no power. Charged my phone in the car and computer in a Chinese restaurant. Monday afternoon. The power went on. Cut up the huge cedar branch in the back yard, swept the roof of branches, cleaned out gutters. – Jack Emberly is a retired teacher, local author and environmentalist.

How was surplus a surprise?
Editor, The News: Prime Minister Stephen Harper has announced a â€˜surpriseâ€™ budget surplus of $1.9 billion in the previous fiscal 2014. Wow, and just before an election. Whoâ€™d have thought? Ironically enough, this figure is close to the sum he cut from veteranâ€™s affairs in 2014. That same year, almost 14 per cent of the money allocated to foreign affairs was returned unused. Overall in 2014, $7.2 billion was returned unspent to the

Problems with our health care system
Rollinâ€™ Claus Andrup Âˇ Re: Residents want say on new shelter. The news of the Sleep Shop facility has spread far and wide. New faces appeared from nowhere last week.

NEW IN TOWN?
EXPECTING OR A NEW BABY?
Editor, The News: There is something not right about our health care system. It seems the family doctor and the emergency doctor are starting to live in separate areas. The family doctor had both his office patients, as well as admitted hospital patients to
government. Â It also withheld $1 billion from the military, resulting in degradation of training and vehicle maintenance or replacement. Border service was also cut. All this money returned to the government went to the assets account and counted as income. Prior to this, the federal government held on to more than $10 billion it was expected to spend in 2012-13 â€“ and still posted a deficit. In fact, this year, $350 million has been returned un-

When you go to the emergency room, you are registered for a particular reason per what you think is wrong. We have to go through sometimes many tests to get to the real problem. This can take hours for you and the patient doesnâ€™t always understand the test results.
Maple Ridge FUNERAL CHAPEL & CREMATORIUM
The Parliamentary Budget Office and Bank of Canada, whose results he cannot fudge, disagree. But my main question remains. Mr. Harper has a degree in economics and claims to be fiscally responsible (even though heâ€™s added 24 per cent of all national debt since 1867). So, how is it, conveniently right before an election, you suddenly â€˜discoverâ€™ an almost $2 billion â€˜surplusâ€™ from the previous year? F. Braun McAsh Maple Ridge
It is this confusion that we think we should go to our family doctor. But then that could take weeks. Some days you may have to wait a long time at the emergency and perhaps you could have gone to a walk-in clinic. Ron Tucker Maple Ridge

But to be reasonable, something must make up the revenue lost by his $90 billion tax break to profitable corporations. And, of course, the current â€˜surplusâ€™ is based on the PMO examining only two months of economic figures.

‘Don’t flush wipes’ pilot project planned in Pitt Doing so costs Metro $200,000 a year to unclog By Neil Corbett email@example.com
itt Meadows residents are getting toilet trained. Larina Lopez of Metro Vancouver explained to council Tuesday how the city, over the coming weeks, will be used for a public education pilot project, to see if the bureaucrats can convince people to stop flushing wet wipes down their toilets. Lopez explained that even baby wipes that say “flushable” on the package clog sewer lines, system pumps, even residential pipes. “They’re becoming a real problem in our sewer system,” she said. “Many wipes are labelled flushable, but in actual practice do not break down in the waste water system.” They’re a drain on resources. Already this year Metro has spent approximately $100,000 dealing with sewer clogging caused by wipes. They have to turn off the sewer pumps, and in many cases unclog drains by hand. Some years, the cost in Metro has been $200,000 for unclogging sewers, and Canadawide, wipes cost municipalities an estimated $250 million per year. In getting out its new no-wipes message, Metro is taking on a formidable challenge. Baby wipes aren’t the only offenders. The same type of wet wipes are used for household cleaning, makeup removal and personal hygiene. Women are the main users. It’s a global $13.2 billion market that is growing by approximately seven per cent annually. The pilot project is about changing behaviour, said Lopez. The Baynes Road Sewage Pump Station has a defined catchment, where staff can measure the number of wipes in the system before and after the project. Pitt Meadows Mayor John Becker, vice-chair
Pitt Meadows Mayor John Becker promotes the “adult toilet training” campaign, which includes a pink Porta Potty. of Metro’s utilities committee, volunteered the city for the pilot. The plan is to use humor in an “adult toilet training” campaign, that will be carried on posters and decals in public women’s washrooms around Pitt Meadows, at places including restaurants, pubs, fitness centres and golf clubs. There will also be online ads, and a social
media campaign centred around the www. neverflushwipes.ca web page. There will be ads in local papers and other media, and a roving pink Porta Potty with decals and messaging that will be placed at events and locations where the public can use it around town. “We have to bring the bathroom to them,” said
Lopez, and it was parked outside Pitt Meadows City Hall on Tuesday night. Metro will measure the number of wipes before during and after the eight-week project, to evaluate success. Information gathered in the Pitt Meadows pilot program will be used to inform plans for a region-wide campaign in early 2016.

“If we can plant 10, we can scale that up and plant 100 or 1,000, depending the size of the vehicle.” And that “proof of concept” is what makes their project exciting. They will be back at UBC’s Malcolm Knapp Research Forest this spring doing more work to further develop the Tree Rover. Both of the young men are avid outdoorsmen. Neither one has ever been a tree planter, but understand it to be demanding physical labour. And Birch said they are both idealistic about their future careers. “We both have a shared interest in environmental technologies.” Whatever ultimately happens with their tree planting robot, the young men will be better for the experience, said Aron. They will have learned about engineering, marketing and problem solving. “For those two students, it’s the journey that matters. It’s the learning that happens during the process that matters most.” He said the research forest is the perfect place for their work. “It’s what we’re all about.”
The new robot can’t work on a cutblock in its present configuration, but the concept is promising. “It definitely has potential,” Aron said. Birch acknowledged that the entrepreneurial co-op project “is going to require a fair bit more development.” The students put the Tree Rover together with out-of-pocket funds, so it doesn’t have their conceptual sci-fi mechanical spider legs that would enable it scramble around a cut block. Even tracks would do. But it has small wheels. They have started a funding project online, and have come up with $3,500 so far, with a goal for $5,000 to invest in their robot. Already they can load 10 trees into the mechanism, and it will plant them on any terrain it can navigate. “It can plant multiple trees, in a row, in ideal conditions,” said Birch.

Maple Ridge renters paying half their income Council OK’s housing framework B y Phil Mel nyc hu k firstname.lastname@example.org
You’re paying a pretty price for the privilege of renting in Maple Ridge. And when you add up the costs of rent and transportation, it’s a pricier than even in Vancouver. According to a Metro Vancouver report, which combines housing and transportation costs when weighing affordability, renters pay 54 per cent of their income in Maple Ridge. In Vancouver, where transportation costs are lower, renters pay only 45 per cent of their income for housing and transportation. The two details are from a staff report packed with information that will be used as background for Maple Ridge’s housing plan. In Pitt Meadows, renters pay 48 per cent of their income for housing and transportation, while those who own their own homes pay only 40 per cent. Coun. Kiersten Duncan
can personally vouch for the details in the report. “As someone who’s rented recently, it’s difficult to find good, affordable units that are clean, well maintained, in safer areas, near transit, that are not horribly expensive. “So I would agree with the data in the report as someone who’s rented recently in Maple Ridge.” The report points out that renters pay proportionately more for housing and transportation than those who have mortgages, largely because the latter earn more. And it says that the vacancy rate in Maple Ridge in the last two years has dropped from more than four per cent to 2.6 per cent. However, monthly rental rates for a twobedroom apartment have dropped by $31, although one-bedroom rental rates haven’t changed. In Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, people pay an average of $708 to rent a one-bedroom suite in an

older apartment block that was purpose built as an apartment building. But if you’re renting a one bedroom investorowned condo, you’re paying $1,200 a month. Council OK’d what it called a housing framework Monday, part of the housing action plan, which lists several ways of adding to the housing supply. One tactic could be to make zoning changes to allow tri-plex or fourplex complexes in parts of Maple Ridge. Another goal to be tried in the short term is working with Fraser Health or B.C. Housing to increase the supply of seniors or supportive housing, such as at Alouette Heights. Also up for consideration this fall is using density bonusing – allowing builders to put in more units than zoning allows – in return for also building rental units or seniors housing. Another new approach would be to create an incentive plan, through tax exemptions or parking relaxation, to encourage actual construction of rental, apartment blocks.

Coun. Gordy Robson pointed out council hasn’t approved any one measure and will look at each one individually. Robson also said his priority is more supportive housing, with 24hour supervision, to help people who are trying to recover from addiction or mental illness. But he wants to use the market to create affordable housing by providing rental supplements to low-income people, “rather than trying to build a ghetto.” However, one stumbling block against building rental units is lack of rapid transit in Maple Ridge to allow people renting here to get to work farther west. Maple Ridge needs a rapid bus connection to Coquitlam, as was included in the plan recently defeated in the transit referendum. “Until that happens, our downtown is never going to get the strength it really needs.” Robson also doesn’t favour allowing tri-plexes or four-plex buildings that are not owner occupied. “But we’ll see.” Maple Ridge has been working forever on its housing action plan, he added. He also challenged the figure that says rentals are higher for investorowned condos. The report says that while investor-owned condos have higher rents, one-bedroom suites in single family homes are closer to rents charged for purpose-built apartment blocks. Duncan said staff have done a thorough job putting together the information and it passed on to council before Monday’s meeting so council could digest the data. • When it comes to emergency shelter space in Maple Ridge, there are only 25 beds for men and women while there are 12 safe house beds for women. There are only four emergency beds for children after the closure of the Iron Horse Youth Safe House. • There are also only 88 transitional or supportive housing beds for homeless people and 79 beds for special needs people.

She said becoming a new mother is the ultimate incentive for an inmate to rehabilitate herself. She called the mother-baby program the most successful program ACCW ever offered. â€œThey want to learn to be the best mothers possible.â€? Although corrections says the babies born this summer were placed in foster care for their own best interests, Tole, Martin and the other women observing the situation do not believe there was reason to take the babies. Mo Korchinski, a former ACCW inmate who is now project coordinator of a UBC peer mentoring program, said one of the women has returned to her home in Terrace, and has full-time work. The other has returned home to the Okanagan. Both of their babies remain with foster families in Maple Ridge. Korchinski also believes both women and their babies would have benefited from being together in the prison program. Tole said even in the inmate population at ACCW, there are not a lot of violent women. Typically, a women incarcerated for a violent offence was a coaccused in a violent offence that included a man who instigated the attack, she said, or was violent against a partner who had been abusive. â€œFor most women,
when it comes to violence, itâ€™s not random violence,â€? said Tole. A statement from Anton says the program has been re-established. â€œThe mother-child program at Alouette Correctional Centre for Women has been open with dedicated space available since June 2014. The program offers mothers who are in custody a safe, stimulating environment for their babies,â€? she said. â€œThe mother-child program was informed by a B.C. Supreme Court decision, extensive stakeholder consultations, research into similar programs elsewhere and policy work. In keeping with the spirit of the courtâ€™s decision, B.C. Corrections developed the programâ€™s comprehensive policies and guidelines to ensure a safe, secure, healthy environment.â€? Martin is confident the program will once again benefit mothers at ACCW. â€œIâ€™m sure there are people in the ministry who know this is in the best interests of the child.â€? But she said it may take political action to ensure corrections officials comply. Tole agrees. â€œThe minister and the premier have to tell the administration at the institution to sit down with the other ministries, and set up partnerships. â€œWeâ€™re hoping that at some point this will get back on track.â€?

A roaring real estate market is expected to generate $200 million more than the province expected in property transfer tax this year, further pushing up housing costs in urban areas that are already beyond the reach of many people. Finance Minister Mike de Jong says he is working on new ways to reduce the burden of a tax that hits properties every time they are sold. That could include a higher rate for high-priced properties, as suggested by Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. He suggested it as a way of discourage

has charged one per cent on the first $200,000 of the home purchase price and two per cent on the rest, taking about $10,000 on the sale of a $600,000 home. De Jong said this week he is considering adding a third step for high-end properties, with revenues used to reduce the burden on middle-priced homes. Another option considered for next February’s budget is to raise the exemption for first-time buyers, currently spared the tax up to $475,000. “How many first-time buyers are purchasing homes in excess of that is a question that deserves to be asked before we tout a further reduction of that threshold,” de Jong said. Statistics Canada reports that Vancouver’s housing price index was up 1.6 per cent in July, compared to the same month last year. Victoria’s index fell by 1.5 per cent. Premier Christy Clark said in February she wants to eliminate the property transfer tax in the long term, once the province’s debt is reduced. De Jong’s financial update this week showed the province paying down operating debt accumulated since the recession of 2008-09. NDP finance critic Carole James said the province is expecting a $277 million surplus this year, most of it accounted for by the windfall from property transfer tax. “For an economy to rely on a hot housing market in the Lower Mainland and [Vancouver] Island is a problem,” James said. “We need a diverse economy.”

B.C. on track to be in black By Tom Fletcher Black Press
VICTORIA – The B.C. government is on track for a surplus of $277 million for the fiscal year ending next spring, despite a costly forest fire season and a continued decline in revenues from natural gas and other resource revenues. Finance Minister Mike de Jong released results from the first quarter of the year Tuesday, showing the surplus down $7 million from the budget forecasts made in February. It showed revenues higher than expected from income taxes and property transfer tax, as well as continued rapid growth in retail sales and sales tax revenues. Government spending is now forecast to be $381 million more than the budget, with costs of this year’s forest fire season above $300 million. That’s more than last year, but still below the total for 2009 and B.C.’s worst fire year, 2003. With similar surpluses expected for the next

Finance Minister Mike de Jong shows how income and property transfer taxes (at left) were higher than expected in the first part of the year. two years, de Jong said the government has room for some “modest” spending increases on programs. But the main emphasis remains paying down operating debt left from the deficit years that followed the financial crisis of 2008. De Jong said the current trend would see operating debt paid off by 2019-20, for the first time since the 1970s. Capital debt for major construction continues to grow, but not as quickly as the size of the economy.
The B.C. economy continues to add employment, but less than one half of one per cent per year. NDP finance critic Carole James said manufacturing and forestry are struggling while the B.C. Liberal government maintains its focus on natural gas exports. “We’re almost at the four-year mark for the premier’s jobs plan, and here we are, continuing to see less than half of the number they predicted in terms of job growth,”
James said. The opposition has focused on the government’s reduced spending on post-secondary education, and charging adults $550 per credit for high school courses they take after graduation, in order to qualify for further studies. “Now’s the time that we should be providing support for people who want to retrain, who want to go back to school, who want to look for those job opportunities,” James said.

Tories rally business ART OF MUSIC allies against NDP win CENTRE Moore, Day stoke memories of B.C. in ’90s By Jef f Nage l Black Press
A leaked Conservative letter to B.C. business leaders is urging them to pull out the stops to fight a potential NDP federal election victory that it warns would devastate the province’s economy. “This election will be decided in B.C.,” said the letter from Industry Minister James Moore and former Conservative cabinet minister Stockwell Day. “We could end up with an NDP national government,” they said, predicting the result will be “higher taxes and a broken economy.” Although neither is a candidate in this election, the two Tories said they will take their message on the road and urged business leaders to work with them to convince voters to re-elect the Harper government and reject the “dangerous policies” of the NDP. The letter also takes aim at Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s plan to cancel LNG tax incentives. But it mainly targets the provincial NDP’s record governing in the 1990s, saying it directly led to B.C. becoming a “have-not” province with 50,000 residents forced to leave to find work elsewhere. “Now is not the time for risky experiments.” It echoes the B.C. Liberals’ economyfirst attacks against “risky” Adrian Dix that helped persuade voters to reject the NDP in the 2013 provincial election, despite an early polling lead for the New Democrats. Philip Hochstein, president of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C., said he hopes the message
resonates with voters. “I think the federal Conservatives are right to remind British Columbians about the lost decade of an NDP government,” he said, adding business leaders could be influential. “We have a history under the NDP, we know what it was like,” Hochstein said. “There was, in essence, a strike on capital – people stopped investing in British Columbia.” He said the latest polls showing the Conservatives are running third place in a tight three-way race do not concern him. “The election will
be won or lost on the economy and people will make the right decision.” SFU political science instructor Cara Camcastle said the tactic of dredging up the NDP’s record in Victoria may prove less effective this time because federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair has promised balanced budgets and, unlike Dix, has carefully avoided taking a premature stand against proposed pipelines. “The Conservatives are trying to put fear into those who are considering change,” she said. “But after 10

years in power, there will be some Conservative supporters who feel they’ve had their chance.” Canadian Taxpayers Federation spokesman Jordan Bateman said he’s not surprised by the letter. “In politics, you always go back to what’s worked,” Bateman said, but added the strategy is getting long in the tooth. “The NDP did some outrageous things in the ’90s. But I’m not sure how that’s a complete predictor of future behaviour. It’s almost 20 years ago now.”

Inspect, repair gutters, downpipes By Kevin Gillies
atten down the hatches. The green leaves are turning red, and dropping, and the autumn weather is coming ashore. We are at the September Equinox and we’ve already experienced some fall weather here in the north Fraser region this year, and more is on its way as sure as daylight is diminishing daily. And with this autumn weather comes the Lower Mainland’s annual deluge of rain and a home’s worst enemy – water. So before the worst of the downpours begin, it would be wise to inspect your gutter and downpipe system, and repair any damage that has occurred in the past year. This can be one of the most important jobs you do around your home all year, as gutters and downpipes direct water away from the house to protect your siding, foundation, and landscaping. Without them, siding can rot, basements flood, and flowerbeds erode. Clogged or leaking gutters can lead to rotting fascia boards, peeling paint, or something worse, like interior leaks. And don’t think that having gutter shields means you’re okay to skip inspecting your gutters this fall. Pine straw and leaves can lodge in gutter guards, and smaller debris can filter through to cause problems. Plus shielding gutters doesn’t prevent leaks or keep hangers from working loose. To clean out clogged gutters, you’ll need a ladder, a garden trowel or homemade scoop (made from an antifreeze container), a bucket lined with a trash bag, a hose, and a rag. After removing any gutter guards, use your trowel to scoop leaves and other debris from the gutter. Dump it into your bucket. The collected material can be added to your compost pile if you have one, or it can be dispose with other compostable lawn debris. Once your gutters have been cleared of debris, check downspouts aren’t clogged by inserting your garden hose, with a rag wrapped around its end, so water is directed through the downpipe. Turn your hose’s water pressure up as full as
Clogged or leaking gutters can lead to rotting fascia boards, peeling paint, or something worse, like interior leaks.
possible to ensure the water is flowing freely through your downspout. If your downpipe has a clog that can’t be cleared with full water pressure, you’ll likely have to use a plumber’s snake to break through the plug. Once that’s done, use your garden hose to flush out any remaining debris. If the plumber’s snake cannot break through the plug, you’ll have to disassemble the downpipe and remove the plug. Once water runs freely through the downpipe, rinse the entire gutter thoroughly with the hose. After gutters and downpipes have been cleaned out, inspect and repair gutters and
downpipes as needed. Make sure the gutter hangers are securely fastened, and use a carpenter’s level to ensure the gutters are sloped properly and not holding water. They should slant down toward the downpipes approximately a quarter inch for every 10 feet of gutter. If a section of gutter is sagging, snap a chalk line on the fascia board, and remove the hangers in the area. Measure from the chalk line, lift the gutter up and reposition their hangers to hold the gutter properly in place. Because water is heavy, gutters should have a hanger every two feet, plus one foot from any seams.

Once your gutters are securely in place, with the correct slope, you should check for leaks by running water through the gutters with your garden hose. Mark visible leaks and allow your gutters to dry thoroughly before patching the leaks with gutter sealant. You can also use caulking or roofing cement or specially formulated self-sticking patches to cover damaged gutter areas. Then you can feel confident that your home will be safer from water damage once the Lower Mainland’s fall and winter deluge begins.

After opening with win, give up 15 goals in two losses B y T i m Fi t z g e r a l d email@example.com
The Ridge Meadows Flames are going to have to improve their defence if they have any hope of making the playoffs. The Flames find themselves 1-2 early in the Jr. B season and in a familiar position that hampered their chances of making the playoffs last year. The Flames gave up 174 goals against while only scoring 130 last season. Their minus-44 goal differential was the second worst in the Pacific Junior Hockey League. The Flames may be only three games into the season, but their team defence will have to pick up their play if they hope to improve on their 16-win season last year. The Flames have given up 19 goals in their first three games and are allowing an average of just more than 41 shots per contest. They lost 5-2 Wednesday night in Aldergrove against the undefeated Kodiaks and will look to get back in the win column Friday, when they host the Richmond Sockeyes at Planet Ice, 7:30 p.m. Flames coach Jamie Fiset said the combination of having rookie defenceman means there will be a learning curve for his team. He also said the team’s record and stats don’t fall squarely on the back end. He called out his forwards to do more. “There’s going to be some bumps and bruises early on. We know we have to be patient with our younger players,” said Fiset. “But that’s also the forwards not blocking very many shots. It’s something we have to work on and get better at.” The Flames opened the season with a thrilling 5-4 overtime win over the Delta Ice

The host Marauders, who play in the AA division, only had 17 players dressed for the game against the AAA Seahawks from North Delta and lost 45-14. The Marauders struggled to
stop the run initially before putting up some offence in the second half. Head coach Matt Todd said he told his team to wipe the first half from their memories and get back to basics. “I like what I saw. They played much better in the second half.

He said the combination of having to dress four rookie defenceman after Cam Alder was suspended for checking from behind in Saturday’s opener and fatigue lead to his team running out of gas in the second period. “I’ve been in games were you see something like three quick goals, but never five. I guess there’s a first for everything,” said Fiset. The Flames finally got on the scored board in the third after falling behind 9-0 when Jake Holland scored his first goal of the year. Tamelin gave up seven goals on 37 shots while backup James Peakman gave up three goals in just 1:18 seconds of relief work. The Flames gave up 45 shots in the tilt.

Maple Ridge’s Connor O’Dell is looking to lead the U. of Fraser Valley Cascades to their fourth straight PawWest title.
Mary Robson, Executive Director, Friends in Need Food Bank
O’Dell excited to lead Cascades Get involved. email@example.com
Connor O’Dell of Maple Ridge was the top finisher for the the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades men’s golf squad, helping lead the team to third place overall in the first of four PacWest tournaments at Kelowna’s Okanagan Golf Club last weekend. O’Dell carded rounds of 74 and 72 to finish in seventh place at 146. Teammate Connor McLellan was tied for 11th, firing a two-day 150, while Cody Stewart was 12th with a 151, Zach Olson was tied for 13th with a 152 and Kaleb Fisher tied for 19th with a 154 to round out the tournament. The Cascades men’s golf squad, PacWest champions each of the past three years, heads to Surrey’s Northview Golf and Country Club Saturday, Oct. 19 and again on Sunday for the second PacWest conference tourney, hosted by the Kwantlen Eagles. “It was a bit of a slow start for our team – not exactly what we wanted, but we didn’t shoot ourselves out of it,” said O’Dell. “We still have three tournaments to go, and we’re in the mix in third place.” Cascades head coach Chris Bertram said there were definitely some positives and some things to build on. “We’ve got a bit of ground to make up, and there’s a lot of golf left to play,” said Bertram. “I know we have the talent
to make it up – it’s just a matter of executing.” O’Dell was all-Canadian in 2014 and is No. 1 on the team’s depth chart. O’Dell and his Cascades’ teammates will host the final PacWest tourney on Oct. 3 and 4 as well as the Ping CCAA Golf National
Championships on Oct. 13 to 16. Both events will be held at Chilliwack Golf Club. O’Dell said he’s excited for the chance to be the leader of the team, the player the rest of the team looks to when the pressure is on. “Expectations are pretty high. We have
a younger team than we’ve had in the past, with some new faces, but I think we’re just as strong as we’ve ever been. “With the advantage of hosting the last PacWest event and nationals, I’d say expectations are as high as they’ve ever been.”

Amanda “Gypsy” Rink 1975 - 2015 It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved friend Amanda “Gypsy” Rink who passed suddenly on Friday, September 04, 2015. Amanda leaves behind her precious daughter Tarlyn Nevada Toews; Nevada was truly her pride and joy. She is also survived by her loving boyfriend Shawn as well as Nevada’s dad Richard and step-mom Ashley. Amanda is also remembered by her very close friends and many, many other friends including her Stave family. Amanda was a social chameleon. She could approach anyone and start a simple conversation that would result in a cherished friendship. We, Amanda’s friends, were all brought together by her. She inspired extroversion in the introverted and introspection in the extroverted. People from very different circles now call each other family because of Amanda. Her lack of judgment towards others and her way of highlighting the best in each of us will always be remembered. Thanks Gypsy! Amanda was an avid “wheeler” and loved her truck “Bocephus”. Her best days were spent in the mud, under the sun and her best nights were spent by the campfire with her friends and family. She had an artistic flair that is evident in her many poems; recently she was expressing herself through painting as well. Time spent horseback riding with Nevada was something Amanda spoke of often and fondly. A strong love of animals was also shared between them. Gypsy was a proud participant in the yearly Lower Mainland 4x4Toy Run; Bocephus will still be attending in her honour. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, October 3rd, 2015. Specific time and venue will be announced on Amanda’s Memorial page on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ groups/1697534907142463/ Donations in Amanda’s name can be made to: S.A.I.N.T.S. Rescue: http://www.saintsrescue.ca/ There is also a trust fund for Nevada: Van City branch 29 Nevada Toews - 200857
