MP rejects more scrutiny of expenses MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

M

embers of Parliament rejected Auditor-General Sheila Fraser’s request to look at their books, and local MP Randy Kamp agreed that there is already enough scrutiny of federal politicians’ books. MPs’ accounts are “looked at very carefully” by House of Commons staff, Kamp said, and he agreed with the Board of Internal Economy, which includes MPs from all political parties, that there wasn’t any need for further scrutiny by the auditor-general. “There is a fair bit of scrutiny

already,” said Kamp, who is the Member of Parliament for Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission. “(MPs are) very careful about staying within the guidelines.” Fraser has argued the current auditing system isn’t good enough. She said her team of auditors would go deeper to ensure taxpayers are getting good value for the more than $500 million in public money spent annually on MPs’ expenditures. The Commons Board of Internal Economy stated they don’t want to open up their books to the auditorgeneral. “Following careful consideration, the auditor-general will not be

invited to conduct a performance audit of the House of Commons,” said a board statement released last week. Kamp’s total expenses for the last fiscal year was $493,178 which included travel, maintaining offices in Maple Ridge and Ottawa, telephone, printing and advertising. (See below for details.) Every year a certain number of MPs are randomly chosen to have their books looked at even more carefully than the standard. Kamp said he’s had his books looked at a few times and “they haven’t found anything of any significance.” With files from Canwest News Service

It’s Not a Toy play takes responsibility for the environment TROY LANDREVILLE editorial@mrtimes.com It’s Not a Toy will send a message of eco-awareness to Maple Ridge theatregoers on Thursday, May 27. Presented by the Grade 8 Interdisciplinary Arts Academy at Garibaldi Secondary, the series of vignettes focuses on hot environmental topics. “We start off with schools and how kids don’t take a lot of the responsibility, even for their school building,” explained Cyndy Lacroix, drama teacher at Garibaldi Secondary. “From there we have some First Nations issues; some poetry that the kids chose to put in it; use of vehicles and how we travel around the Lower Mainland and what we do about carpooling and lack thereof; and how you can change things, even around your house.” The goal is to educate people of all ages about environmental issues, and, Lacroix noted, “what really small differences they can change in their lives, in order to make a difference for their future.” The play, involving two boys and 24 girls, runs at 7 p.m. in the school theatre. Admission is $5 at the door. “This is about current global issues that are going on in our world,” Lacroix said. “The eradication of animals and the health of the planet, the weather changes, global warming, oil spills, and pollution.” Grade 8 actors at Garibaldi Secondary struck a pose to promote their production of It’s Not A Toy, which runs May 27 at the school.

Urban beekeeping put on hold AMY STEELE asteele@mrtimes.com

T

he buzzing of bees from urban beekeeper hives won’t be heard in Maple Ridge, at least for a while. Maple Ridge council received a letter from a citizen asking for changes in zoning restrictions that would allow people in urban Maple Ridge to keep bees. Council asked the agricultural advisory committee to study the issue and the committee recommended that council direct staff to prepare bylaw amendments and guidelines to allow beekeeping in urban areas. However, the majority of council wasn’t comfortable going that far and instead directed staff to further explore the issue. Councillor Mike Morden said he’s in support of beekeeping in general but not in urban areas. “There’s a place for it and I would suggest that it would be within the outer urban limits where you’d have lot sizes that are sufficient to have this happen safely. There’s liability to getting stung by bees if they’re in close proximity to urban areas. I’m not really comfortable with that,” said Morden. Councillor Al Hogarth questioned whether it’s necessary for council to approve beekeeping in urban areas because he pointed out that there are plenty of rural and agricultural properties interspersed in the urban area of Maple Ridge. “ We’re ver y unique in terms of most other communities because if you take a look at how the rural and agricultural land reserve winds its way through the municipality I don’t know if we actually have a need for urban beekeeping when you consider that aspect of it,” said Hogarth. Hogarth added he has a friend who is “severely allergic” to bees and that’s a big concern for him. “I’d hate to see us grant somebody permission to put in a beehive next to

LIn, aka Dr. Bee, is based out of Honeyland Canada in Pitt Meadows. somebody that has one of these severe allergies. If you want to talk a disaster waiting to happen and a liability I think that’s personally it,” said Hogarth. Hogarth said doesn’t mind looking at a beekeeping bylaw that would allow bees on rural or suburban oneacre lots but he’s not sure about more urban areas. Councillor Cheryl Ashlie said she wants more background information before she can support it but said “this is in the context of the agricultural plan and promoting agriculture viability and economy.” “It’s an option that people

can (take) in the urban setting that maybe don’t want to get into digging in the ground and can enhance the agricultural viability in the community,” said Ashlie. Ashlie noted urban beekeeping has been allowed in other municipalities, including Burnaby and Vancouver and has been successful. “If anybody can pull it off I think it’s Maple Ridge,” she said. Councillors Linda King and Craig Speirs both wanted urban beekeeping to be allowed in the short term. “It’s so advantageous not only to the agricultural community but also really to

need and if you don’t have pollination you’re not going

to have fruit, you’re not going to have flowers and you’re not going to have prod u c e,” s a i d K i n g . “ We know from continuing reports every single year for probably the last seven or eight years that bee populations are severely threatened in North America and to be responsible stewards of the environment we ought to be encouraging

anything that encourages bees to survive and we have lots of areas of the municipality in which people have lots of sufficiently large size that one or two hives would be suitable.” King said she doesn’t think “masses of people” are going to “rush off ” and become urban beekeepers and she added it would only be appropriate to allow bees in certain urban areas. “We’re not talking about our 6,000 square foot lots or townhouses or people with apartment balconies. That’s not what we’re talking about but we have a lot of lots that would be suitable for this type of activity and even if a few more people like 10 more people took it up the benefit would be so enormous,” she said. Councillor Craig Speirs said he’s “quite concerned” this year at the small number of bees around his blueberry bushes. “Usually they’re just buzzing with honey bees and there was like two and I’m quite concerned that I’m not getting the correct pollination to have a bumper crop like I had last year,” he said. Sp e i r s s a i d h e’s b e e n approached by “quite a few” people who are keeping bees in urban areas “ad hoc and they really want to be brought into the fold because they are responsible, they aren’t dangerous.” Mayor Ernie Daykin said staff could learn from the experience of other municipalities and bring back the issue in “short order.” “That would give us all a level of comfort and we could support the bylaw and... move it forward,” he said. A staff report prepared for council noted that been colonies “impart significant environmental benefits,” especially in urban areas. “It is also noted that urban environments, with their diverse plant species are particularly well suited to sustaining bee populations, which are becoming threatened globally,” said the report.

Densifying Hammond spurs council debate Application for apartment building rejected by staff, but supported by some on council.

An application to build a 36-unit low-rise apartment building in Hammond generated debate about what level of density is appropriate in the historic neighb o u r h o o d a t Mo n d a y ’s committee of the whole meeting. The application is for property at 20615, 20623 and 11312 206 Street. Maple Ridge staff has recommended that the application be rejected because it’s inconsistent with the Official Community Plan (OCP). A staff report noted that the properties are designated urban residential and categorized as neighbour-

hood residential in the OCP. Neighbourhood residential allows for limited infill through single detached, duplex or triplex townhouses. An apartment building doesn’t align with that policy, which aims to ensure development fits with the character of the neighbourhood. Jane Pickering, director of planning with the District of Maple Ridge, said staff believes an area plan is needed for Hammond and before that happens there’s a concern about setting a development pattern that wouldn’t meet future objectives. Councillor Cheryl Ashlie wanted to know how soon an area plan could be devel-

oped for Hammond because she said she believes the application is “exactly what

Councill o r A l Ho g arth said there are several reasons increased d e n s i t y makes sense on the site and added he thinks Hammond has “a b s o l u t e l y phenomenal potential to be an iconic neighbourhood.” “I think this is the type of thing we need to see happen,” he said.

Pitt mayor wants halt on trucking MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Pitt Meadows council has referred an application to extend trucking in fill to the Golden Ears Business Park project back to city staff to discuss the plan with the developer. The developer Onni asked for an extension of a previous permit to complete filling in the site to get it to flood construction levels, which is now about onethird is complete. “I have been promising the residents of this community that trucking will stop any day now,” said Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean at Tuesday’s council meeting. It’s estimated that about 466,000 cubic metres of fill is needed for the 14-hect-

However, Hogarth said council needs to hear from the neighbourhood about it.

He said row houses might be more appropriate on the properties than an apartment building. Councillor Mike Morden said he’s in favour of the

Swift reaction to Pitt ‘Oops’ stickers TRACY SHERLOCK CanWest News Service

M

etro Vancouver’s surcharges on landfillbound loads containing banned materials have Pitt Meadows looking at fines as a way of keeping recyclable materials out of garbage bins. And judging from the first warnings sent out by garbage collectors, Pitt residents are none too happy. Collectors have been pasting “Oops” stickers on bags or cans that don’t meet city requirements. Paul Brinton wrote the TIMES saying he was told his garbage can was too big. “These garbage cans have been in use by our household for over six years,” Brinton wrote. “Wouldn’t it have made more sense to have notified all residents that you have now decided to enforce the can size rather than relying on the independent garbage collecting company to do your ‘dirty work’ for you.” (Read the rest of this letter and others on Page 11.) Throwing a glass jar or a plastic bottle into the garbage might soon cost people $100. Pitt Meadows is considering fines of $100 for its residents who put recyclables,

including grass or yard trimmings, into their garbage bins. T h e m ov e i s a b i d t o recoup a 50-per-cent surcharge Metro Vancouver places on garbage loads found to contain any recyclable materials. “We’re not going to be going through people’s garbage. We’re not ripping bags open. This is just another tool to use if we’ve already left your garbage at the curb,” said Pitt Meadows’ director of operations and development services Kim Grout. Under today’s rules, if Pitt Meadows garbage collectors determine that a garbage can contains recyclables, or is oversized, they will leave an “oops” sticker and refuse to pick up the trash. Surcharges of 50 per cent of the tipping fee apply to loads containing more than five-percent banned recyclable materials, which include: Corrugated cardboard, recyclable paper, green waste, containers made of glass, metal or banned recyclable plastic numbers one, two, four and five, and all beverage containers except milk cartons, said Metro Vancouver spokesman Bill Morrell. There is also an extensive list of hazardous materials

Metro Vancouver’s surcharges on landfill-bound loads containing banned materials have Pitt Meadows looking at fines as a way of keeping recyclable materials out of garbage bins. that are prohibited; if those items are found in garbage Metro charges $50 per load plus the cost to clean up the load, Morrell said.

A Pitt Meadows staff report proposes fines of $100 for putting banned or prohibited material in the garbage, $50 for using oversized con-

tainers, $25 for using a single extra bag tag more than once and $50 for failing to clean up a garbage spill. “The hardest one to deal with is people who don’t clean up if their garbage gets strewn by the crows,” Grout said. “We have residents all the time who bring their neighbours’ garbage here to city hall, because they say no one is cleaning it up.” Metro increased the tipping fee at the region’s transfer stations to $82 per tonne from $71 per tonne in January. An average load is about four tonnes; tipping fees for this load would be $328 with the surcharge for banned materials $162, Morrell said. Metro Vancouver has a goal of a 70-per-cent garbage diversion rate by 2015; the region now diverts about 55 per cent of its waste to recycling. Across Canada the average diversion rate is only 24 per cent. “[Seventy per cent is] a waste diversion rate that only the country of Austria has achieved and a few other nations in Europe are approaching, so we’ve set an ambitious target,” said Lois Jackson, the chair of Metro Vancouver’s board of directors. Metro began surcharging for loads containing banned materials in 1997 and added

more items to the banned list in 2008. The additions include lawn and garden trimmings, blue box recyclables and beverage containers. Grout said the list will continue to grow as the region proceeds with its solid waste management plan, and that a ban on food waste in garbage is being contemplated. About 40 per cent of the average home’s garbage is food scraps, which comprise 13 per cent of the 3.6 million tonnes of waste generated in Metro Vancouver each year. Cities offering food scrap collection at curbside are Vancouver, Richmond, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. Pitt Meadows does not offer curbside pickup of green waste, but they are considering it. “We think we would see some of our violations go down if we offered an alternative for people,” Grout said. New rules and facilities to get food, paper and wood out of garbage cans are a significant part of Metro Vancouver’s draft solid waste management plan, which is out for public consultation until June 11 at www.metrovancouver.org. ◗ Pitt Meadows city council is expected to vote on the new fines June 15.

Animals slow down rescue as people flee fire AMY STEELE asteele@mrtimes.com

L

ouise Kirk woke up Tuesday morning to the sound of the Maple Ridge fire department banging on her door yelling at people to get out of the building. Kirk, who uses a wheelchair to get around after suffering from polio, had to rush out in her bathrobe. Two neighbours then raced into her unit to rescue her rabbit named Baby and her cat named Scooter. Meanwhile, Sue Siteman was asleep in her townhouse unit with her two-year-old grandson Tristan when she heard people “screaming and yelling for us to get out of the house.” “I had my grandson with me.... I just grabbed him and I ran,” said Siteman. She then screamed for her neighbour above to get out of her unit. “It was bad. There was f l a m e s e v e r y w h e re a n d smoke,” said Siteman. Siteman had praise for the firefighters on the scene. “They’re so good the fire department. They’re awesome,” she said. Denise Pilote, who lives above Siteman, also awoke to people yelling for her to get out of her unit. She ran out in her nightgown but then she and two

neighbours ran back in to rescue her two cats. Siteman and Pilote don’t have fire insurance and are hoping the smoke damage isn’t too bad in their units. The fire, which broke out just before 8 a.m. destroyed one unit and caused smoke damage in the other seven units in the 8-plex townhouse. Firefighters also had to cut off power to the building. No one was injured in the fire. Maple Ridge Fire Department Chief Peter Grootendorst said the cause of the fire hasn’t been determined but appears to have been accidental. Grootendorst said the age of the building caused some challenges because there weren’t any sprinklers and the building construction also didn’t have some of the fire prevention provisions required in the current building code. He added that firefighters had a tough time evacuating one woman because she was worried about her cats. He said it’s important for citizens to know that the best thing they can do is evacuate immediately and the firefighters will go in and save their pets. “You really shouldn’t be risking your life for your pets,” he said, adding he knows how attached people are to their pets.

Leave independent schools alone

A

re British Columbia public schools underfunded? It is a difficult question to answer definitively because no one in the public has access to all the infor mation required to form an independent opinion. There is a river of rhetoric from school boards, the opposition in Victoria and public education employees insisting districts must cut existing services and programs every year simply because funding does not keep up with rising and added costs. Among these groups, there is no ownership of the funding problem and therefore little discussion of changing how education is structured or delivered. A defensive provincial government points to an annually increasing flow of taxpayer dollars to public schools since before this year’s grads first enrolled in kindergarten. The Ministry of Education website boasts about providing $4.55 billion in operating funds this year. A news release informs the public that school districts have 53,000 fewer students to educate since 2001 and $1.3 billion in additional funding. Citing mounting costs, school districts claim they are “at the wall.” Perhaps the question should be, “Is funding the real issue?” More funding may even be counter-productive and further mask the inefficiencies of a monolithic public institution. But, our elected representatives at both the provincial and community level seem unwilling to

even acknowledge the possibility. The minister of education and school trustees need a reminder their actions serve as role models for students. Ever yone will be better School served if they conWatch centrate on behavKATHERINE ing in a respectful WAGNER manner. To g e t h e r t h e y must consider reforms to bring our school system into the 21st century and in the process address funding pressures — the possibilities include greater school autonomy, rationalized districts and reduced bureaucracy. Instead, school trustees appear to be choosing the status quo and a “me-first” attitude. Their latest ill-considered move is to demand government cut funding to independent schools and pass on the “savings” in school districts. By taking this short-sighted position, the trustees we elected to represent our communities are instead dividing parents and students within our communities. Trustees claim they have been forced to this position by “underfunding” and this is just a question of redirecting $250 million to public schools. However, an examination of the issue calls into question their motivation. According to March 2009, Ministry of Education statistics, 69,281 full-time equivalent students were enrolled in independent schools that “employ B.C.-certified teachers, have educational programs consistent with ministerial orders, provide a program that meets the learning outcomes of the British Columbia curriculum, meet various administrative requirements,

maintain adequate educational facilities, and comply with municipal and regional district codes.” Only one category of independent schools is not required to hire certified teachers or offer an education program consistent with ministerial orders. This group accounts for only 623 students and they are not eligible for any government funding. At a time when public school enrolment has dropped drastically, independent schools have enjoyed an annual growth of about two per cent a year for the last five years. These students now account for approximately 12 per cent of B.C.’s K-12-aged population. Independently schooled students cost 50 per cent or less of the per-pupil funding spent on public school students and there are no capital costs. It is a bargain for B.C. taxpayers but it threatens the public school monopoly. If even half of the students currently attending independent schools were forced into public schools because of the proposed funding cut, districts would barely gain enough additional funding to cover the costs. There would also be the intangible cost to families. Independent schools are a valuable aspect of a spectrum of school choice. Public schools and independent schools can both gain through sharing and collaboration. However, this latest move by school trustees does little to foster mutually beneficial neighbourly relations. Divisive politics may play well in a headline or on the opposition bench but it does not serve the larger school community.

TransLink has an uneven way of looking at things. When it comes to its overall future, it cries that the sky is falling and the public needs to fork over hundreds of millions of dollars in a variety of taxes, levies and user fees in order for it to survive. But when it comes to the Golden Ears Bridge, all is rosy and glowing and according to plan. Even if it isn’t. It was revealed recently that the new toll bridge has cost TransLink nearly $5 million more to operate in its first year than was projected. According to a story by Canwest News, use of the bridge has been lower than expected, meaning less toll revenue to cover its costs. “TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said ridership estimates going back to 2004 projected daily use of the bridge would be 29,400 vehicles in its first year. But the actual daily average from July 16, 2009, through to March 2010 was only 20,600.” That’s about 9,000 fewer vehicles per day. That’s a lot. It’s also not surprising considering that the bridge usually looks like a ghost town no matter what time of day. But TransLink isn’t worried. Of course it isn’t. All is well, nothing to see here. “What we see, though, is a trend that’s improving,” said Hardie optimistically. In March, for instance, the peak volume hit an average of 26,200. Whether that number stays solid and continues to grow is anybody’s guess. We hope so because under the bridge contract TransLink (meaning us) has to pay the builder no matter what. This isn’t to say we don’t like the bridge. On the contrary, it’s made life wonderful for a lot of people by saving a lot of time and gas to get across the river. Because of that, we’re frankly surprised that the bridge isn’t more popular. Now if we could only sell the the two Albion ferries that were replaced by the bridge...

Do the math on council Editor:

Re: No labour leaders allowed, TIMES Mailbag, May 14 Jim Bulpit needs to do his math. How can Craig Speirs and Linda King be responsible for the sprawl that Maple Ridge has become? There are six councillors plus a mayor who cast a vote. How can two votes control the outcome? These two councillors are helping to keep us aware of the dangerous precedents being made by the rest of council, who allow developers to influence their votes. Florence Nicholson Maple Ridge

Pitt garbage rules unfair How fun to live in Pitt Meadows. One never knows what the day brings in terms of useless decisions and time wasters. This morning I confronted the union crew that is Waste Management, which drives around our neighbourhood and plays godfather, deciding who gets their refuse collected or not. For six years I have had a 145-litre garbage can emptied without any problems. Then this morning the WM “engineer” who was supposed to collect my garbage applied a green sticker that said “Oops” on it, advising me that I am only entitled to 121 litres of garbage or 40 pounds. So I have several questions to council: Can you please take me off your list of people who gets their garbage collected? I will then deduct the amount I pay for the (non) service before I pay my property taxes. If I were to stay with the Air Canada-like system that you seem to have implemented, where do I pick up my new 121-litre can? And do I get to weigh it and measure it before it is accepted? What do I do with the green warning sticker? It is non-recyclable as it has adhesive on the back. If I put it in the regular garbage I might be at 121.001 litres, which is against the “law.” Why would you not notify the citizens that you were changing the rules and try to explain why you decided to do this. Other cities seem to be able to cope, but then again might have been busy writing bylaws you are not able to enforce. Claus Christensen Pitt Meadows

they like to intimidate their residents. First you ban open fires even though most backyard fires were of no problem to anyone. Secondly you all waste time having lengthy discussions about parks for offleash dogs when you can’t even police the current situation. This business about garbage has gone too far. This morning my garbage can and many of my neighbours were tagged that they were oversized. These garbage cans have been in use by our household for over six years. Wouldn’t it have made more sense to have notified all residents that you have now decided to enforce the can size rather than relying on the independent garbage collecting company to do your “dirty work” for you. When can we pick up our new garbage cans from city hall? I can only presume that you are providing new cans free of charge or can I deduct the cost of the can from my property taxes? If I were to leave my garbage in a plastic bag, how are you going to calculate the size? I suppose you are going to provide every household with a set of scales and a metal frame similar to what airlines use to check the size of carry-on baggage. If you are going to fine me you will have to prove that I have overweight and/or oversized garbage containers, or maybe “innocent until proven guilty” does not apply in Pitt Meadows.

Next time, before you pass bylaws, just think about them for a while to see if there is any lack of logic in your actions. Paul Brinton Pitt Meadows

If HST is so great, hold a referendum Editor:

One thing I would agree with Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Mark Dalton about is that we definitely have a pampered business class, with apparently the lowest business taxes in the world and just about to become even much less with the HST. Mr. Dalton talks about making B.C. stronger, but the HST will only make business more profitable unless they manage to break the back of the whole B.C. economy with this huge tax shift. There will not be less tax collected; it is to be shifted from businesses onto the people of this province. We are not talking about an insignificant tax increase here, but a (significant) tax increase on hundreds of the very items you spend most of your money on, such as dying, health treatments, weddings, pretty well everything it takes to run a home, recreation, children and adult sports and activities, cable, phone, medications, school supplies, newspapers, magazines, literally hundreds of necessities you have to buy and do every

single day. Let’s see how has this lowest business taxess in the world worked for B.C. so far. We have the lowest minimum wage by far in Canada, the highest child poverty rate in Canada, and I suppose that would mean the highest adult poverty rate also, the highest unemployment rate in western Canada, and after selling off most of B.C.’s assets and giving away our rivers for exploitation, giving away all our raw logs, and polluting our oceans with their fish farms, cutting many social programs, and bringing our health care system to its knees, not to mention all the other various corruptions we read about every day. Where did all the money go? Within months of a financial crisis, it seems the people of B.C. have gotten nothing out of this exploitation of our resources because we have literally no business taxes, so here we are in B.C. somehow already broke and desperately trying to squeeze even more money out of the citizens of B.C. If Mr. Dalton really believes that the HST was not contemplated during the election, I have a bridge I will sell him real cheap. Rafe Mair has said anything this complex would have involved major discussions with a select few MLAs and business leaders in some dark room somewhere, far from prying ears for at least three months before the election. If Mr. Dalton had any ethics he would run, not walk, away from this lying, deceitful crowd and not be out there spouting Campbell’s pathetic talking points. If this is so good for the people of B.C., have the courage of your convictions, do he right thing and have a referendum, and make an honest case to the people of B.C. for the HST, not act like a thief in the night.

Gifting seminar urges people to plan legacy JENNIFER MARKHAM editorial@mrtimes.com

N

o one wants to think about passing on, but it’s one that that is inevitable for all of us and it has been estimated that only 30 per cent of Canadians have a registered will. If one passes without a valid or updated will then there are legislations in place on how their wealth is distributed. “Ensuring that you have a will and that your affairs are in order, may make a difficult time a little less stressful for your loved ones,” says Maple Ridge lawyer Rhonda Quinton. “Estate planning is not a widely understood field” Quinton says, “and QUOTE: the value “Ensuring... o f t h e estate has that your affairs are in no correlation with order, may how commake a difplex it will ficult time be from a legal stand a little less point.” stressful.” May is Rhonda Leave a Quinton Legacy month. According to the website, Leave a Legacy is a donor-oriented education campaign to raise awareness of the importance of including a charitable gift in the estate planning process. On May 27, there will be an information seminar on estate planning with three experts to inform the public. Haydn Colley is a chartered accountant, Katherine Alexander a financial planner, and Quinton will give the perspective in the frame of the law. Several local organizations are in dire need of volunteers.

◗ Katie’s Place animal shelter needs volunteers. However, Katie’s Place can accommodate any schedule. Call 463-7917 or e-mail volunteeratkatiesplace@shaw. ca for more information. ◗ Ridge Meadows Hospice Thrift Store requires volunteers to sort, price and stock shelves. For more information, call 463-7711. ◗ Red Cross Health Equipment Loan Program - Short Term Loans in Maple Ridge has had to reduce their hours of operation due to a volunteer shortage. Effective immediately, the depot will be open Monday/Wednesday and Friday from 12:30 - 4 p.m. This program provides the loan of basic types of medical equipment such as wheelchairs, crutches and bathroom aids, on a donation basis, for up to three months. A medical referral is required for equipment loan. The Maple Ridge office is located at #5 - 11435 201A Street; phone 465-5050.

Sandra Rankin from the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation says “the event is significant because we will share information about estate planning and leaving a legacy.” Often people procrastinate about making or updating their will, eventually forget about it. There are two types of wills: formal and holographic. A formal will is typed and signed with two witnesses present, and usually prepared by a lawyer or notary. A holographic will is handwritten and signed with no

witnesses present, but this kind of will is not recognized in some provinces. According to the B.C. government website, for a will to be valid it can be handwritten, but it needs the signatures of two witnesses. Some of the key issues in making a will that should be considered are asset distribution, executor, guardian, legacies, trusts, power clause and life interest. One of the most important decisions to be made is the executor who takes control of the assets. It must be someone who is

trusted, and aware that settling an estate can be an enormous amount of work. Another important tip about making a will, is discussing it with your family, and others involved so that everyone understands and then there are no surprises. The asset distribution section is important because an item thought to be insignificant could be considered important to someone, or the opposite. Never forget that sentimental value can rank higher then monetary value in many instances.

Stories exist about disputes, hard feelings and disappointments because the right steps in estate planning were not taken. The reality is that the passing of a family member is already a highly emotional time without the added stress. With a valid will, “you get to decide to whom and in what manner your estate is distributed” according to Quinton. One of the key issues in making a will is a legacy: that is when you want to leave something for a specific person or organization as

Instead of running for a good cause, you can ride your motorcycle with The Ubique Unit (Chilliwack) of the 3rd Canadian Army Veteran (CAV) Motorcycle Units on a Memorial Ride for the Fallen in Afghanistan on June 12th. The CAV is made up of veterans and veterans’ supporters who support our veterans and our communities. This ride is to support Silver Cross Families; families who have lost sons and daughters killed during action in Afghanistan and all the proceeds are going to

the Wounded Warriors nonprofit organization, specifically to support B.C. The aim is to raise awareness about Silver Cross Families and remind them of support and appreciation. The ride starts in Vanc o u v e r a t Tr e v D e e l e y Motorcycles, and ends in Chilliwack at the Sappers Cenotaph where they will hold a memorial service. The Ubique Unit is reaching out to everyone in surrounding communities to join. They already have special military guests from Edmonton, motorcyclists, car clubs and people to line the overpasses including firemen and high school

students. The ride is open to everyone with transportation; bikes in the lead and cars to follow. The ride will follow Highway 1 through to Hope. This is the first time an event of this size will be held in the Lower Mainland. Shawn Evans, a member of the 3rd CAV Ubique Unit and a Maple Ridge resident says, “grab the minivan and bring your family out, we want everyone included.” This is a chance for the Lower Mainland to show their support for the troops and pay their respect to the soldiers lost. After the memorial service everyone is invited to the

Canadian Military Education Centre (CMEC) for food and beverages prepared by the Seaforth Army Cadets. All proceeds from the sale of food will go to the Wounded Warriors Foundation.

School district sends home letter about budget woes try of Education.” The increases include fullday kindergarten - which will be available to 50 per cent of kindergarten students this year and to all next year salary increases, increases in employee benefit costs, and an increase in the teachers’ pension plan contribution as well as inflation. The school board is in the middle of budget deliberations and the draft budget will be presented in mid June. The letter also states that

it’s “critical” for provincial leaders to understand the “difficult decisions we face due to deficiencies in the provincial funding formula.” The advocacy committee consists of three trustees and representatives of partner groups. Trustee Stepan Vdovine said the letters were approved unanimously by the advocacy committee. At Wednesday’s meeting, the board unanimously approved sending the letters to parents and staff. Board chair Ken Clark-

son said the school district won’t be in bad shape this year because of the closure of Mount Crescent and Riverside elementary schools, which he estimated will save the district about $1 million. The cuts that need to be made this year will come in various areas.

Pitt ‘ambassador’ citizen of the year MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

nyone carefully following Pitt Meadows council meetings on Shaw TV will notice that Laurie Darcus, who is always seated next to the mayor, gets radical haircuts twice a year. This is not because she can’t decide whether to have long hair or short hair but because twice a year she donates 10 inches of hair to Wigs for Kids. Not only does she give her hair away twice a year, Darcus gives a lot of her time to activities in and around her community and has been recognized for her dedication as this year’s Pitt Meadows’ Citizen of the Year. Michael Hayes, president of the Pitt Meadows Community Foundation, said Darcus was chosen because of what she gives back to the community and because she is a “passionate ambassador” for Pitt Meadows. “The amount of volunteer hours that she actually gives to the community is just overwhelming,” Hayes said. Darcus said she was “shocked” when she heard she was chosen as citizen of the year by the Pitt Meadows Community Foundation. “I guess I don’t see what

The camp is for children who have cancer – some are in treatment, others in remission. After her first year volunteering as a camp skip, she had to keep going back each year. “I just got hooked – I can’t imagine not going,” Darcus said. “I look forward to it every year.” Some children have told Darcus that Camp Goodtimes is “even better than Disneyland.” It was at Camp Goodtimes that she noticed how important the wigs were for children with cancer and that’s when she decided to start donating her hair twice a year. “This is such a small sacrifice,” she said.

Laurie Darcus volunteers her tiime wherever she can and, for her efforts, has been recognized as Pitt Meadows’ Citizen of the Year. 1979 – at that time, she was Laurie Dixon. Darcus is also doing an

“I love learning and can learn for the rest of my life,” she said.

I do as anything outstanding,” she said. “I didn’t know anyone noticed.” While Darcus’ day job keeps her busy at Pitt Meadows City Hall as its director of corporate services, she volunteers for a number of organizations and activities taking place in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge in her offhours, and she is known as a champion of sustainability. “I’m passionate about making change in our world and especially in Pitt Meadows – it’s the natural place,” Darcus said referring to the city’s motto. “I really appreciate Pitt Meadows ... I’m passionate about the community.” Darcus has volunteered with the Great Canadian Shoreline initiative, the Spirit of B.C. committee, Canada Day festivities in Pitt Meadows and the Jazz and Blues Festival. “I tend to volunteer whenever people need someone,” Darcus said. “I get as much out of it as people get out of me.” Darcus said she hopes being chosen as citizen of the year will encourage other people in Pitt Meadows – especially young people – to get involved and volunteer their time.

But previously Carpenter homemade a motor-powered trike out of wood and bicycle parts that he drove around Maple Ridge. He was determined. Carpenter describes meeting that teacher again as being “usual for a teacher to hear from a student after 33 years, but even more unusual for that student to still be driving the car from their shop project” His teacher felt bad for having tried to

A show of vintage cars is coming to the neighbourh o o d f o r t h e Ma y l o n g weekend. The Golden Ears Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada is taking its turn to host the Car Tour. The last time the tour came to the area was more than 10 years ago. This is the club’s 52nd annual tour, bringing some 350 members and approximately 150 of their heritage vehicles. “The idea is for people to stand on their front doorstep and see the cars drive by,” said Barry Whymark (pictured), who is a member of the Golden Ears Chapter and the owner of two mint-condition 1958 Chevy Impalas. Although the tour starts at the Winter Club, and anyone is welcome to come see the cars there, it is anticipated to be quite congested so people are encouraged to stake out a spot along the route to watch the vehicles go by. The club has been split into two groups of about 7580 cars each. Both groups will be making the tour

Thirty-five years ago as a MRSS shop class student, Carpenter dragged his grandmother’s old car to school intending to rebuild the motor and make numerous other repairs so it could

1970s. It also lacks a clock of any kind, although an analog clock bolted to the dash was an optional accessory at the time. Carpenter used to buy parts for it from Maple Ridge Chrysler. He has rebuilt the body twice over the years, and now keeps up on regular maintenance. The car has also been featured in a few T.V. shows over the years. The car continues to be a part of his family history. He adds that his “sons were both brought home from Royal Columbian in that car. I could fill a whole paper with stories about this car,” says Carpenter. He tells about a trip to Alaska he made in the car with his dad who “back when he had it, didn’t trust it to the next town.” Carpenter also describes the strange conversations the car starts during his daily activities. People approach him talking about their parents or grandparents who owned a similar car. He is also a volunteer driver for the local seniors centre, taking them to appointments and other errands. The car brings back memories for them, and it’s fulfilling for Carpenter to listen. It is also easy for the seniors to get in and out of because it is higher off the ground. The experience also brings back memories for Carpenter from his Community Recreation 12 class when he used to deliver meals from the Hospital to the local elderly in the same car. “My passion in keeping this car going has made me an expert in finding new parts for old cars, and that’s my business now.” Collector’s Auto Supply is based in Peachland and ships new car parts around the world.

During their reunion, Carpenter’s shop teacher signed his 1975 MRSS yearbook that is still kept under the front seat of the car. Carpenter took the car to his 10-year high school reunion, where they gave him a Fuzzy Dice award for still having it. He also brought the car to his 25year reunion. When asked if he is as determined in other areas of his life, Carpenter admits he is. “I have another

On Deck Paddling to the nationals

Brian Malfesi of Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club has been named to Canoe Kayak Canada’s 2010 junior national kayak team. Malfesi qualified at time trials in Montreal last weekend and is the only British Columbia paddler to qualify for this year’s seven-member men’s junior team. The 16-year-old Garibaldi Secondary student will compete against paddlers from across Canada and the United States at the 2010 Lake Placid International Regatta at Lake Placid from July 2 to 4. Malfesi began his training five years ago at Whonnock Lake, and under coach Krzysztof Lepianka and RCKC head coach Peter Majewski, Malfesi’s achievements to date include being named Team B.C.’s peewee male athlete of the year (2005), bantam male athlete of the year (2007) and midget male athlete of the year (2008). Malfesi won a bronze medal last year in the men’s K2 2,000metre event at the 2009 Canada Summer Games in Charlottetown, P.E.I. along with Ken Muir of RCKC. He also won three bronze medals a year earlier (midget men K1 6,000-metre, midget men K4 1,000-metre, juvenile men K2 500-metre) at the 2008 Canadian National Championships. “We’re proud of Brian and our coaching staff here at RCKC, which is quickly becoming a major force in the canoe and kayak field in Canada,” said Michael van Meel, commodore of Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club. “RCKC sent 14 of B.C.’s 24 paddlers to the Canada Summer Games last year and helped Team B.C. win a total of 14 medals. RCKC has grown to the point where it is now the largest canoe and kayak club in B.C. We’re lucky to have such a first rate team at Whonnock Lake, and Brian’s achievements are an inspiration to all of our members. We hope to see even more RCKC paddlers advance to national level competition in the future.” For more information go to www.rckc.ca.

F

or the greater good, Maple Ridge teen Mitchell McDole decided to mend a mangled fence recently. McDole and his Ridge Meadows Burrards teammate Andrew Gresham made the B.C. provincial bantam lacrosse team, as did a rival from Vancouver. There was no love lost between McDole and his Vancouver adversary, after the two boys were involved in a dust-up during a league game last year. For the sake of team unity, McDole buried the hatchet – and not between the eyes of the player he’ll be calling a teammate when Team B.C. competes at the Canadian national championships in Whitby, Ont. Aug. 1-7. “I went right up to him and said, ‘You know what? We’ll put everything aside and have fun,” McDole related. “He said, ‘Sure, no problem.’” The 1996-born players from B.C. will have to be on the same page if they hope to contend with such

lacrosse powerhouses as Ontario, Alberta, and Iroquois Six Nations. Gresham and McDole are the two local reps on the B.C. squad, after emerging from a pair of tryouts. The first step on the road to Team B.C. was earning spots on the Fraser Valley squad, which they did following a tryout April 25 at Port Coquitlam Recreation Complext. The Fraser Valley team went on to compete at a provincial camp in Campbell River May 7 to 9. Teams representing the Fraser Valley, Vancouver, the Interior, and Vancouver Island gathered, and the top players from each were chosen to represent B.C. in early August. The four regional squads, each comprising of 15 runners and two goalies, played a series of games against each other and took part in individual skill sessions, all under the watchful eyes of evaluators. The field was then narrowed down to 30 players, who were mixed into two teams for a game to decide the final 18 runners and two goaltenders. McDole and Gresham were among

the final chosen few. While wanting to stand out in Campbell River, selfishness wasn’t in the vocabulary of those aiming to make the B.C. squad, Gresham explained: “You have to be a team player out there. If you are being selfish with the ball and you are not doing what you can to make your team better, not just yourself, then you aren’t going to be recognized by the coaches. If you are making other players look good as well as yourself, then that’s... the ultimate player.” Making Team B.C. ser ved as redemption for McDole and Gresham, both of whom auditioned for the provincial peewee squad two years ago but didn’t quite make the cut. “I was really disappointed about that,” Gresham said, looking back. “I really dedicated myself to making it this year. I was really ecstatic to make the team. I was really excited, and I am really hopeful to win a gold in Ontario.” Gresham wants to be a leader for Team B.C.; McDole is looking to be a team player while shoring up some

admitted defensive deficiencies. McDole said it won’t take long for the team to mesh together. “We play against these guys all the time, we know each other,” he said. “We’ll see captains and assistants from other teams that we know.” Ontario, which has three times as many players signed up in lacrosse as B.C. does, will likely provide the toughest challenge. “Two years ago, the B.C. team won, which is a great accomplishment,” Gresham said. “Ontario has really dominated this tournament a long time, so I think they will be our biggest rivalry.” Gresham says he plays “all around but mostly shooter,” while McDole describes himself as “more of an offensive guy.” While slightly built, McDole relishes the physical part of the game. “That part I actually like,” McDole said. “I find it very fun. Getting hit is just the same as giving it [out]. If a guy hits me, I’m going to run right past him and put [the ball] into the net.”

! TAYLOR, ANITA “LOUISE” (nee Barrie)

September 1, 1937 – May 12, 2010

Louise parted peacefully on May 12th to join her husband Fred on her next journey. Lovingly remembered by her children; daughter Dawn James and granddaughter Lyndsay; son Brett (Jill) Taylor, grandsons Trevor, Cory (Cara) and great- grandchildren Sean, Hailee, Alyssa and Riley, granddaughter Jennifer; daughter Darcelle (Vince) McGee, grandsons Brandon and Jerrod; son Blake (Nancy) Taylor and granddaughter Maria; sisters Terri (Ed) White and Gloria Sheets. Mom’s very special dog Daisy will miss her companionship, love and warm cuddly lap. Family and friends will miss Mom’s sense of humour and her strong commitment to family. Her gatherings and dinners were filled with great feasts (lots of gravy), much laughter, love and the best gingersnaps! Mom was strong, independent and a brave soul. She understood her time was now and set to join Dad in hockey heaven, and after the playoffs they’ll be off golfing or walking. A celebration of life will be held at a later date for family and friends. This day is remembered and quietly kept No words are needed We shall never forget For those we love don’t go away They walk beside us every day Unseen and unheard, but always near So loved, so missed, and so very dear.

! May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of despair

Never ending love.

LOBSINGER Eleanor Passed away in Maple Ridge on Thursday, May 13, 2010 at the age of 90. She was born in Vancouver on August 30, 1919, the second youngest of 6 children. In school 'sparkie' loved basketball and baseball. Soon after the war Eleanor took her young family to Alert Bay where she got started in the restaurant business. She cooked in a small logging camp, co-owned a restaurantbakery in Sointula, and for many years, owned the Cottage Coffee Shop near First and Commercial in Vancouver. She concluded her working career in the spinal care injury unit at Shawnessy Hospital. Eleanor and Lorne retired to the then new Fraserview Village in Maple Ridge where they enjoyed an active retirement. Eleanor loved Maple Ridge and greatly enjoyed her friends and neighbours at Fraserview, the Senior Centre, and at St John’s Church. Eleanor left four children, five grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and three great, great grandchildren. We will miss her greatly. The wonderful care and attention given to Eleanor by her friends, Fraser Health home care staff, McKenney Creek Hospice staff, and by Dr. DeKlerk is greatly appreciated. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, May 25, 2010 at 11:00am in St. John’s Anglican Church at Laity and River Road. Those wishing to make a memorial contribution may donate to Canadian Cancer Society, McKenney Creek Hospice, or another charity of their choosing.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Aries March 21 - April 19: A busy, detail-filled month lies ahead. Your luck has been low, but it soon will climb or reach equilibrium (early June through early September). Sunday/Monday feature relationships and opportunities. These are a tough slog Sunday – you might reach a final separation point or showdown over a domestic, career or similar situation. Don’t expect fireworks, just deep, thoughtful commitment to a path. Monday’s the opposite – everything works when you admit your own fears, failings! Secrets, inheritances, investments, other people’s money fascinate you midweek: but a major problem lurks.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The few weeks ahead bring reduced energy levels, quietude and sweet solitude, spiritual nudges and administrative or governmental contacts. It’s a good time to contemplate and plan your future. When doing that planning, realize that June through August will favour your ambitions, and contacts with bosses and VIPs. Worldwide, this will also be a turbulent time – and in crisis there are opportunities. Your relationship, ambition and security/ domestic zones all face change (or at least, adventure!). Sunday holds either deep affection or deep rejection. Your romantic, creative urges rise midweek.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Expect four weeks of internationalism, higher learning, far travel, publishing and legal, cultural events – and love! But an April/May trend of intimacy, financial commitment or research with someone representing one of these zones, will continue. E.g., if you became intimate with someone in April or May, you might now see love dawning, or travel to see them. Or, if you researched, you might now publish, or take it to a court of law. Or an investment/ business partnership you explored might become a signed contract. Your charisma, energy soar Sunday/ Monday. Careful Sunday in career/home.

Taurus April 20-May 20: Tackle chores Sunday/ Monday – that’s better than getting into trouble by siding with one person or the other when they argue (Sunday). Relationships bless you Tuesday, but anger is close to the surface Wednesday. Life’s mysteries, depths and deep nurturing rise to consciousness Thursday/Friday. Your financial and sensual instincts surge – but something you start now might meet a longterm (romantic and financial) barrier. Saturday brings initial stress (around noon) then wisdom and mellow thoughts. The weeks ahead emphasize earnings, purchases, possessions, memory and sensual joys.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead bring wish fulfillment, popularity, flirtations, entertainment, optimism and joyful plans! You could start a love affair; it could lead to marriage, or bring travel to a foreign country. Expect success in legal, educational, cultural, love, publishing, far travel and similar zones. But this might be just a taste of success, Leo – don’t force matters, be willing to wait until 2011 if success doesn’t fully gel. Much talk Sunday (watch underground resentments or sneaky people) and Monday (trust someone!) Rest, midweek. Romance, creativity and a winning streak, Thursday/Friday!

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You face a month of depths, intimacy, sexual urges, secrets and research, commitment and consequence, and crucial health and lifestyle choices. You should meet success! Someone you’ve dealt with since early to mid-April could play a prominent role. You might find your work duties expanding June through August. Retreat, take a deep rest Sunday/Monday. (Sunday might subtly pull a “mellow relationship” apart.) Your energy and charisma surge Tuesday/Wednesday – ask a favour or start a new project! (Best Tuesday morn.) You can march straight toward more earnings Thursday/Friday – do so!

Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma, effectiveness and decisiveness return, big time! Over the weeks ahead, start significant new projects, see and be seen, make an impression on important people! Early June to early September might bring a wish true, especially in areas of marriage, relocation, business partnerships and social acceptance. Even if they don’t, your popularity, optimism and “future sight” will rise – get ready to enjoy life! There will be no more need for caution in relationships. But that’s early June. Meanwhile, Sunday (uncooperatively) and Monday (magically) promote romance, creativity.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A month of ambition, success, prestige relationships and community recognition has just started. But a study, travel, love, cultural or similar theme, evident since early April, continues to June 9. It might involve communications from another country. You’ll be half ambitious, half thoughtful. You’ve met lucky opportunity in 2010 – for business, marriage, relocation, perhaps litigation. June-July-August will move these opportunities to deeper waters (commitment, intimacy, funding, etc.) If you “miss,” opportunity will return, September-December, and commitment will return, early 2011.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your hopes rise Sunday (though money is a disappointing topic) and Monday. Optimism, popularity, flirtation and fun visit you! Or perhaps you’d better go out and find them, since you’ve entered a month in which others hold the aces of charisma, energy and clout. Still, fresh horizons, opportunities and exciting relationships are imminent! The more you approach, the more you’ll gain. An AprilMay task lingers into late June, so tackle it. (You might also be romancing a workmate during this time.) Lie low midweek. Emerge Thursday/Friday to greet the world! Romance – soon.

May 23 - 29 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The month ahead accents work and health, machinery and service personnel, the heavy side of kids (e.g., dirty diapers rather than the joy of her first soccer goal). Look upward Sunday/Monday – to ambition, prestige. An attractive, affectionate person stands across from you Sunday – but are you too secretive, defensive? If so, rethink. You’ve been intrigued by a romantic or creative possibility April and May – this continues through June. Don’t abandon it.Your hopes rise nicely mid-week, but retreat for some solitude Thursday/ Friday. Real estate luck hovers on the near horizon. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature pleasure, beauty, romance, joy with children, creative surges, and a winning streak in speculation. A Gemini or Virgo could be involved – perhaps a person you might have tried to end it with in April/May. Love, understanding, your life philosophy, far travel, legal or educational matters are the theme Sunday/Monday. Sunday might bring a “silent disagreement” over duties. Be ambitious Tuesday/Wednesday, but avoid friction with a competitor. Your hopes rise Thursday/ Friday, as popularity, light romance and entertainment arrive. Retreat Saturday, seek quiet rest. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The weeks ahead accent your domestic scene, security, real estate, Mother Nature, gardening, nutrition. It’s a time to digest what you’ve done, where you’ve travelled over the past year (and years) and where you’re going. This might lead you to abandon certain bonds and projects, and to embrace new ones. That’s good, natural. Sunday presents you with a subtle, perhaps hardly conscious dilemma, a choice between different friends or viewpoints. Secrets, deep power, intimacy might be involved. Midweek’s mellow, brings understanding. Be ambitious Thursday/ Friday: success awaits! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
