t’s down to the final eight contestants on CTV’s So You Think You Can Dance Canada, with Surreyites Danielle Gardner, 21, and Nathalie Health, 23, hanging in there as two of the nation’s favourite hoofers. They’ll perform again on the hit show Wednesday (Oct. 13), with phone-in and judges’ votes tallied Thursday night. C’mon Surrey, our girls need your support! Both Health and Gardner are contemporary dancers; as a toddler, Gardner was inspired by her older sister to dance and has since been trained at six studios across B.C., while Health has worked on a number of high-profile projects that include dance double for Hilary Duff in The Lizzie McGuire Movie and lead dancer in Michael Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet” music video.

SURREY – It’s a grisly subject that’s been mulled over by UFO theorists and on-line commentators since the advent of the Internet: The mysterious case of the halfcats. Throughout North America, pet cats have been found sliced clean in half, and to date no one knows why. The latest cases, here in the Lower Mainland, are getting international attention. “I’ve been getting calls from all over Canada, international,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen, spokesman for the RCMP “E” division. Between June and September, as many as three cats in South Surrey and White Rock, five in Langley, and one in West Vancouver have been found cut in half. One woman found half of her pet on a neighbour’s lawn. This phenomenon has been blamed on anything from Aliens to coyotes. But an animal did not cause the latest Lower Mainland cases, Thiessen noted. “This is surgical, very clean cut.” Typically, only the front or back half is found, with very little blood at the scene. Thiessen said police had no suspects at press time. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

Navy gets rare city honour

Car thieves love the casino

Teachers burning out: Poll

NEW WESTMINSTER – HMCS Discovery recently became just the sixth recipient of the Freedom of the City in New Westminster. The City of New Westminster last presented the honour in 1963. “Excellent turnout from the Navy, cadets and veterans,” said Colin Stevens, the city’s manager of museum and archives. HMCS Discovery approached city hall about being granted Freedom of the City, in honour of the navy’s centennial anniversary. “It is a very big honour for any military naval unit,” Stevens said. “They were very pleased at the city’s positive attitude toward the military. The military is appreciated here.” Stevens suspects that may have something to do with the city’s close ties to the Royal Westminster Regiment. The regiment is the only other group to have been bestowed the Freedom of the City in New Westminster. – Royal City Record

LANGLEY – A rash of car thefts at Cascades Casino in Langley last month has police reminding drivers to be vigilant. The casino, located at 20393 Fraser Hwy., was the target of five auto thefts and four auto breakins in September. Police are at a loss to explain why. There were no cars stolen in the preceding three months, even though car thefts tend to spike in the summer. During the same period last year, there was only one theft during August. Cpl. Holly Marks of Langley RCMP said she was unaware of the thefts until The Province phoned, and that she would be flagging it so officers are aware. Marks added that auto theft does tend to “go in waves” and that Cascades Casino has not been known for a high level of criminal activity. “I review the watch commander’s report and I don’t see a lot of activity at Cascades Casino,” Marks said. – Langley Advance

RICHMOND – Richmond teachers and administrators appear to be coping, so far, with increased demands, like all-day kindergarten, and fewer resources. But Al Klassen, president of the Richmond Teachers’ Association, warns that teachers were reporting high levels of burnout and frustration even before the Richmond school board was forced to lay off hundreds of support staff in order to eliminate a $6 million funding shortfall for the 2010-2011 school year. He fears their frustration will become chronic. “One in five teachers are thinking about leaving the teaching profession,” he told school trustees Monday. “One in three would not recommend a career in teaching.” He was citing a poll conducted by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. Eighty per cent of the teachers interviewed said they believe the provincial government is headed in the wrong direction when it comes to public education. – Richmond News

Drug charges not linked to murder: police

❚TEEN’S MURDER IN DELTA

Lots of tips but no breaks

Tom ZYTARUK Staff Reporter

SURREY – Homicide investigators say they’ve found no evidence to link Thursday’s shooting murder of South Surrey resident Randall Davis to the fact he was slated to appear in Surrey provincial court on a drug charge later that day. “There’s nothing in evidence or facts to suggest that the two are linked – the fact that he was expected in court and the fact that he was murdered,” Cpl. Dale Carr, spokesman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said at press time. Randall William Davis, 51, was shot dead early Thursday morning in the driveway of the rural house he rented at 17692 24th Ave. Davis was to be tried on charges laid in 2007 concerning production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking. Meantime, IHIT is hoping to speak with anyone who saw a green four-door 1998 Acura Integra being driven erratically eastbound on 24th Avenue on Thursday morning. Police later found it abandoned at 266B and 29th Avenue in Aldergrove. Before police arrived at the murder scene Thursday, a neighbour of Davis’s was leaving his driveway when a man carjacked his Integra. “We need to speak to each and every neighbour in the area,” Carr said. “We will be looking to see if they have seen anything out of the ordinary over the last few days.” He added it’s too early to say if the murder was linked to drugs or gangs. Police ask anyone with information to call the IHIT tip line at 1877-551-IHIT or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. – with files from Vancouver Sun

Surrounded by media and with an emotional backdrop of a memorial to murdered teen Laura Szendrei, Delta police Sgt. Sharlene Brooks gives ❚PHOTO/Sharon Doucette an update on the investigation Friday.

DELTA – More than 55 Delta Tom ZYTARUK police officers are sifting through Staff Reporter some 350 tips received in connection with Laura Szendrei’s murder, but police have yet to reveal a significant break in the case. Delta police Sgt. Sharlene Brooks said investigators didn’t anticipate releasing any more information about the murder over the Thanksgiving weekend. Delta police held a press conference Friday near the murder site that was attended by about two dozen reporters and a handful of North Delta residents hoping for positive news. Szendrei, 15, died in hospital the day after she was viciously beaten in broad daylight on Sept. 25 in Mackie Park, in the 8200-block of 110th Street in North Delta. “We are continuing to explore and exhaust all leads and possibilities,” Brooks said. “We sense the urgency in the community.” A week before her murder, the teen and a couple of her friends were reportedly pepper-sprayed by other youths in Delsom Park. Brooks said investigators have concluded that incident “does not appear to be linked” to the killing. Police are also reviewing recent assault cases on women in North Delta and other communities in Metro Vancouver. Brooks said investigators hope Friday’s press conference will “hopefully jog someone’s memory” if they noticed anything unusual in Mackie Park leading up to the attack on Sept. 25. “We will follow up on every tip and every lead,” Brooks said. “Please come forward.” Brooks said other police departments are helping Delta police. She said the investigation “may run silent for a period of time,” but investigators are working hard behind the scene. “Investigations don’t unfold in tidy packages,” she noted. Meanwhile, police are still not able to say if the killing was random or targeted. Brooks said investigators “may have” identified a person of interest they were looking for, who was seen leaving Mackie Park wearing a backpack on the afternoon Szendrei was attacked, but she added that still needs to be confirmed. Two weeks have passed and the yellow police tape barricade still surrounds the crime scene. Brooks noted police have “only one chance” to search the area, because after the barricade is brought down, they’ve lost continuity. As for Szendrei’s family, Brooks said, “It’s nothing short of devastation.” “They are living a parent’s worst nightmare.” Police ask anyone with info to contact the Delta police at 604-946-4411. tzytaruk@thenownewspaper.com

DELTA – Intersections Sandor planned for the South Fraser GYARMATI Now Contributor Perimeter Road in Delta could be dangerous locations, say local officials. “Priority one should be safety. One of the highest crash incident intersections in the Lower Mainland is the (Highway) 91 and 72nd (Avenue) because it’s not really effective in the format it’s in right now,” said Coun. Anne Peterson. A four-way intersection is to be built at 80th Street, near the Delta Community Animal Shelter, while another is to be built near Nordel Way and River Road. A recent report to Delta council notes staff had not seen revised concept design drawings for the SFPR, but the government informed Delta the Sunbury and 80th Street locations will be intersections, whereas the Highway 17 and Highway 99 connections will remain as interchanges. At a recent Delta council meeting, Coun. Scott Hamilton said the municipality’s position has always been that those locations should be interchanges, because the intersections could be “a recipe for disaster.” CAO George Harvie said the safety concerns would be raised at an upcoming meeting with Gateway Program officials. The report to council notes the province acquired sufficient land to allow the Sunbury and 80th Street intersections to

be upgraded to interchanges “when traffic volumes warrant.” A spokesperson with Ministry of Transportation and Highways said traffic studies found those intersections could accommodate the anticipated opening day traffic volumes. The project has acquired and preloaded property for future interchange construction. Peterson, however, said it would make sense to construct the interchanges now rather than take on the additional expense in what could be the not too distant future. “It had always been intended to be interchanges. To turn it into intersections at this late date and say they’ll do something in 20 years when capacity calls for it isn’t good enough. If you’re going to build it, build it right the first time. “Back when they built the (Highway) 91 and the Alex Fraser (Bridge), they had all sorts of intersections coming on and off the bridge. Within six months they had to change that and make them interchanges and change the configuration to remove the lights, because it was creating such a havoc,” she added. The South Fraser Perimeter Road will be a four-lane, 40-kilometre highway extending northeast of the existing Highway 17/Deltaport Way intersection, through Delta and Surrey with connections to highways 1, 91 and 99 and the Golden Ears Bridge.

❚ NEWS ❚TRANSPORTATION

Funding TransLink with taxes wrong way to go, Watts says SURREY – Surrey’s mayor said TransLink is barking up the wrong tree by proposing raising property taxes to pay for the $1.4-billion Evergreen Line. The transit authority dropped the proposal on regional mayors during a meeting held Thursday. TransLink wants to take an extra $5.20 per $100,000 of assessed value to help cover its $412-million share of the Evergreen Line and the first phase of the South Fraser Perimeter Road. The levy would add $31 to the tax bill for an average Metro Vancouver home. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts missed the meeting because of illness, but when contacted by the Now Friday, she rejected the measure out of hand. “We need sustainable funding for transit and I think everybody’s been really clear that sustainable funding doesn’t equal property taxes. “You can’t fund something like TransLink with property taxes.” Watts said the provincial and

federal governments both have to step up with more money and a better funding model to support transit expansion in the region. All of the region’s mayors refused to endorse the property tax measure Thursday. NDP transportation critic Harry Bains agreed with Watts and her colleagues. He said the mayors and the province signed a memorandum of understanding not long ago in which both sides agreed to examine all options, including property taxes and carbon tax revenues, for funding the projects. “The ink isn’t even dry on that MOU. The mayors asked the province to put other options, like the carbon tax, in the mix and the mayors are told yesterday that the only option to be considered is property tax,” Bains said. “Basically, the government is saying the mayors have no say in this, but they have to bear the responsibility for funding. The provincial government is not acting in good faith.” The ministry did not respond to a request for comment. tcolley@thenownewspaper.com

Border guard sex assault trial hears closing arguments this week Tom ZYTARUK Staff Reporter

SURREY – Closing arguments in the trial of Surrey border guard Daniel Greenhalgh, who is accused of sexually assaulting three female travellers and illegally strip searching four at the Peace Arch border crossing in 2007, will get underway this coming week. The trial is being heard in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. The defence is expected to make its closing arguments on Wednesday, to be followed by the Crown. Justice Frits Verhoeven is tentatively expected to make his charge to the jury on the following Monday. Meanwhile, why did the border guard cross the road? Greenhalgh told the court even he doesn’t know. This question dominated the last days of testimony. The jury had heard testimony from alleged victims who claimed the border guard took them to either a public washroom or a dimly-lit fenced area, ostensibly to search them for drugs, and

then groped them after having them strip. Their names cannot be published, by court order. Earlier in the trial a young U.S. woman testified Greenhalgh instructed her to cross a road to a men’s washroom to be strip searched after she and her boyfriend arrived at the border, during a graveyard shift. The jury saw a border surveillance video showing the woman and Greenhalgh both crossing the road, but from different points. The guard testified that he’s never been in that washroom before and that he doesn’t remember much about the woman, or why he crossed the road, but said he was likely heading to his car to recharge his flashlight or to grab a pop. “I don’t recall crossing the road,” he testified. “I don’t recall crossing the street with an 18year-old female. I don’t recall it. “It was a non-resultant examination so there was nothing for me to commit to memory,” he said of him stopping the couple that night. Crown prosecutor Winston Sayson noted that not once in his

200-page statement to police did Greenhalgh tell them about his nightly strolls to his car to grab a cola and recharge his battery. Greenhalgh said he was trying to answer the police investigator’s questions in context of him supposedly trying to cross the road with the woman. He said he had offered the police some explanations why border guards might go to the park, but the list was “not exhaustive” and he couldn’t remember it now. “I don’t know why I crossed the road,” he said. When Sayson asked why he didn’t recharge his battery at one of the four recharging spots within the station itself, Greenhalgh replied they were for Stinger flashlights, “which I did not have.” The court also heard that there is a pop machine in the staff lunchroom that dispenses cola at $1.25 a can. Sayson called up a surveillance video of Greenhalgh walking through a lobby, carrying something in his hand. “That may be a pop can in my hand,” Greenhalgh said. “I can’t say with certainty.”

Surrey border guard Daniel Greenhalgh is on trial. Later in the morning, defence lawyer Joe McCarthy recalled the surveillance video and argued that the footage of Greenhalgh carrying what may have been a pop was taken after the guard had crossed the road. Greenhalgh told the court how his memory works: If a search turns up nothing, he explained, he doesn’t remember it. He recalled on a different date stopping three young Americans in a car – two women and a man. Earlier on, he testified that he’d sometimes take travellers to a spot where they could see the U.S. customs station and then he’d tell them, if he wanted them to reveal where they were hiding

drugs, that they’d be facing a felony charge in the U.S. but likely only a fine in Canada. Sayson asked Greenhalgh why he took both women there, but not the man. Greenhalgh replied that one of the women had drugs on her and that the other had something to lose, namely her car. “I found no drugs on his person, and second, he had nothing to lose,” Greenhalgh said of the male traveller. During the trial, the court heard that government policy requires that strip searches be conducted by two guards of the same gender as the person being stripped, and only with the approval of a superior officer, and that guards are not allowed to touch those being searched. Julie Kelly, Greenhalgh’s supervisor at the time, testified that Greenhalgh had not sought her approval to strip search the women that night. But Greenhalgh testified he did. He said he got along with his fellow border guards but had disputes with Kelly that were more than just workplace variety. “Philosophical,” Greenhalgh said.

Train derailed in Surrey after it hits truck

Jackson among voices calling for minimum wage hike

SURREY – A train smashed into a semi truck Friday afternoon in North Surrey, knocking the train off its tracks. The crash, near Timberland Road and Tannery Road, caused a significant traffic snarl. Police said the truck was crossing at an uncontrolled crossing shortly before 1 p.m. when it was hit. The impact caused significant damage to the truck and also derailed the train. The truck’s driver was taken to hospital to be treated for cracked ribs. Police are asking witnesses to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

Homelessness awareness march goes Friday SURREY – Homelessness is a hot topic in Surrey this week. An annual Homelessness Awareness March will be staged Friday morning on King George Boulevard by Newton Advocacy Group Society (NAGS), with donations of bus tickets, food, coats and gloves encouraged. The event starts at 11:45 a.m. near the group’s 88th Avenue office. Also planned is a homelessness and housing task force forum tonight (Tuesday) at SFU Surrey, with a showing of the documentary film Poor No More and guest speakers, and a Connect Day event (for the homeless and those living in poverty) Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Whalley Legion, 13525 106th Ave. Call 604-581-5172 or NAGS at 604-596-1880.

DELTA – It’s time Sandor for B.C. workers to GYARMATI Now Contributor catch up, says Mayor Lois Jackson, who joined other mayors recently calling for an increase in the minimum wage. Jackson and 20 other mayors joined with the B.C. Federation of Labour in calling on the provincial government to increase the minimum wage to $10 and eliminate the $6 training wage. B.C.’s $8 an hour minimum wage has not been increased since 2001. Every other province in the country has increased its minimum wage in the last year and B.C. now has the

lowest in Canada, says the federation. “B.C. has Canada’s highest rates of poverty, including child poverty,” said Jim Sinclair, president of the federation. “Other provinces have made the connection between raising the minimum wage and combating poverty. We need to make the same connection here in B.C. and raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour with future increases linked to increases in the cost of living.” Jackson, who signed the joint letter to the premier, said while a training wage was seen as a good way to hire students and train young people, people are entitled to a decent work-

ing wage. “We were convinced it should be reviewed and at least in concert with some of the other provinces,” she said. In B.C., the First Job/Entry Level minimum wage is $6 per hour. After employees have worked for a total of 500 hours with one or more employers, those employees are entitled to the regular minimum wage rate of $8. While B.C. remains at the lowest minimum wage level in Canada, earlier this year Ontario’s minimum wage increased by 75 cents, to $10.25, making it the first province to pass the $10 mark.

Barefoot steps down from Fraser Health SURREY – The chair of the Fraser Health Authority board has stepped down.

❚POLITICS

The lingering doubts about NDP leader Carole James’ leadership that exist within her own party exploded into Keith BALDREY public view last week, but we’re still a long, long way from any real revolt aimed at replacing her at the helm. James booted Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson from her caucus after more than a year’s worth of grumbling from the two-term politician. Simpson had clearly been unhappy for some time, and never seemed to get over being replaced as forestry critic after the last election. What had been primarily a case of private complaining kept within the NDP tent found its way onto the Internet in a weekly column that Simpson writes for a Williams Lake website. Simpson was mildly critical of James’ performance in her speech to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. (He wasn’t alone on that point; most observers, including this one, agreed with his assessment.) James asked him to apologize for his comments and when he refused, she expelled him from caucus. For James, it was simply the last straw in dealing with someone who was increasingly bold about his attacks on her leadership. I’m told she acted so firmly to head off what was expected to be a more open, public attack on her by Simpson down the road. As well, she’s sending a message to any would-be malcontents in her caucus: Don’t even think of challenging my leadership. She may have thought Simpson had left her no choice, but her aggressive action will inevitably

Attack the leader is typical NDP game

energize those in her party who have never been sold on her leadership. Oh, there are undoubtedly other NDP MLAs perhaps unhappy with James’ leadership or the direction the party is heading (Harry Lali, Michael Sather and Guy Gentner spring to mind). And the blogosphere is filled with rants about her, supposedly written by NDP supporters or B.C. Liberal bashers. A Facebook page called “Return Bob Simpson to the NDP caucus” has even been created. The far left-wingers think she’s too centrist, and decry her for wanting to reach out to the business community. There is a considerable dose of hypocrisy here. The same New Democrats who gleefully jump into bed with Bill Vander Zalm (whose track record on gay rights, reproductive rights and unions is so much more at odds with NDP values and policies than any tax break for business ever would be) think it’s abhorrent to even talk to the business community. But the party activists and the anonymous commentators on blogs have limited power on this issue, at least until the fall of 2011, when the party convention votes on a leadership review.

The only way James’ hold on the leadership would be sorely tested would be if one of the NDP’s “A-Team” MLAs openly challenged her. If someone like Mike Farnworth, Adrian Dix, John Horgan, Jenny Kwan, Katrine Conroy, Shane Simpson, Norm MacDonald, Bruce Ralston or Rob Fleming were to speak out, then James could find herself in a very precarious situation. But I don’t see that happening. The fact is that where it counts most – within the key players of her caucus – James finds the core of her strength. There are two more important factors at play here as well. First, there is no logical replacement waiting in the wings to take over should James be toppled, or if she quits on her own. There is no one – from within caucus, or from outside – who can make a credible argument that the party stands a better chance of winning in the 2013 election if they were leader. Second, James and her party are sailing along at the top of the polls right now, with a sizeable lead over the B.C. Liberals. The gap between the two parties will undoubtedly narrow as we approach the next election date – it always does – but it’s simply

nutty for the NDP to start talking about changing leaders any time soon. However, it’s typical of that party for its diehard adherents to attack their leader, no matter where they stand with the public. Bob Skelly, Mike Harcourt, Glen Clark and Ujjal Dosanjh all had significant wounds from all kinds of knives plunged into their political backs by their own people. Carole James is discovering her party has not changed. She’ll continued to be attacked by her own folks right up until the next election – and afterwards as well, even if she wins.

❚ VIEWPOINT

Civilization too tenuous for talk shows OddThoughts

Civilization rides like a thin, loose, sometimes slimy film on the skin of humanity. The thin film keeps rupturBob GROENEVELD ing, and animal deviance breaks through our tenuous hold on all that we deem civilized. No more demonstration of proof is needed than the Heather Thomas case… and horribly, so many others like it. Heather would have been 20 years old now, if that veneer of civilization hadn’t been torn from beneath her. She was a 10year-old girl when she left her Cloverdale home on Oct. 1, 2000, three weeks before her body was discovered, floating face down in Alouette Lake. The despicable creatures that

are capable of reaching through the film to tear away the lives of children like Heather are only one manifestation of the flimsiness of human civility. It happens all the time. It happened countless times before Heather, and hasn’t stopped – or even slowed down – over the past 10 years. From serial killing and chronic pedophilia to spousal abuse and road rage, civilization faces a constant barrage of ruptures. How the rest of us handle those rips, how we attempt to patch the tears defines the real strength of the fabric of humanity. Sometimes we don’t do a very good patch job. It’s very easy, sometimes, to get caught up in the evil that tears through civilization, right through humanity’s skin, and reaches into our very hearts. Almost invariably, it goes this

way: a young man, an old man, a woman… is in a jail cell, facing serious charges that he or she has torn a hole – the foulest kind of hole – in the fabric of civilization: a child is dead. Meanwhile, chanting protestors and frightened, outraged, selfdeclared protectors of civilization threaten to widen the breach. One of the basic tenets that holds together our civilization is the presumption that every one of us is innocent until proven guilty. That tenet demands that we all maintain a rational, civilized hold on our emotions – at least until guilt is reasonably, undeniably proven. To ignore that tenet is tantamount to grabbing hold of the film of civilization with both hands and tearing at it with all our might. Care must be taken, in case it becomes evident that an error has been made – in case the real

monster, the real destroyer, the real animal is still at large – and to ensure that yet another victim has been created in our zeal to ducttape the hole. Care must be taken to ensure that the film does not rupture further, with the chance that it slips from our grasp altogether. That, too, has happened before. And sometimes on tremendously large scales. These are things to think about as you latch on to the next talk show where one supposedly foul individual or another is eagerly vilified by a host desperate for ratings and panel of “expert” guests who dare not add any rational caution, or face the wrath of mock outrage that gets magnified exponentially before millions of viewers. An accusation has become all that is necessary to determine guilt and pronounce a sentence meted out by people whose only creden-

tials are their willingness to tear down another human being, on the pretext that the due process of the justice system isn’t harsh enough for them. Luckily, there remain those who will hang on tight to the edges of the gaping holes that sometimes threaten to shred civilization. Heather’s sad case provides an example for that, too. Hundreds of people – some of them friends, some of them neighbours, many of them people who had never met Heather or any of her family – turned out to take part in search parties throughout the three weeks that there was hope she could – would – be found alive. They and the police, fire, and other emergency personnel who took their paperwork to their vehicles, to sit outside Lower Mainland schools, to add a watchful eye, and help ensure that no other children followed Heather through the rip in in the fabric… They are the real protectors of civilization.

Victoria’s Magnolia hotel a starting point for adventures north in Cobble Hill As far as invites go, it was Beau SIMPSON a good one. Managing Editor “Not willing to let summer fade away?” the email read. “Are you a wine lover who likes adventure off the beaten track? Then this is your opportunity to create an unforgettable escape.” They had me at wine. And so, my lovely girlfriend Kari and I headed to the Island for a weekend of wines and dines. Eager for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Lower Mainland life, we embarked for what was being billed as the “Grape Escape.” And what an escape it was. Even the ferry ride seemed like an escape to us — still no orca sightings though (I swear, one day I’ll see them from a ferry.) Once in Victoria, we checked into the Magnolia Hotel & Spa, which hosted us for two nights and arranged a self-guided tour of some of the Island’s award-winning wineries and cider houses. It gets better; we just so happened to visit the Island during the weekend of the Cowichan Valley Wine Festival. Good timing on my part, if I must say. Magnolia is right downtown — just steps away from the inner harbour — and despite being only a decade old, the boutique hotel has a cool historic vibe to it. Bill Lewis and staff were very accommodating and made sure we knew which wineries to check out and exactly how to get there (despite frustrating hand-made signs along the highway that kept getting us lost). First stop: Merridale Ciderworks. We didn’t stay long but we arrived at this charming cidery just in time for a tasting. Kari loved the glasses but hated the cider. I liked it, though — it’s something different. You can have your standard red wine anytime. I like the idea of serving something unique for dinner. My favourite was what they call Scrumpy cider — not for the faint of heart though. Very earthy, Scotch-like. I liked the charm and uniqueness of Merridale but Kari was more in the mood for some good, bold reds — so off we went. Just down the road, we found a quaint little winery near Cowichan Lake called Silverside Farm. If you like berry wines, this is the place for you. My drink of choice was the Tayberry wine, an intense wine made from — you guessed it — the tayberry, which is basically a

Bête Noiré is made from a unique Hungarian varietal called Agria, a dark-skinned grape with robust flavours of black currants and cherries. Whatever it was made from, and however you pronounce it, one thing we knew for sure — this is what we came for. So, full of wine, paella and Island ciders, we headed back to the Magnolia eager to crack into the bottle of red from a winery we didn’t get to visit that was left for us in the room before hitting the town. Grape Escape, eh? Is that what they’re calling it? A pretty good name, if you ask me.

cross between a raspberry and a blackberry. Dessert wines aren’t my cup of tea but I gave them a shot and found that I actually enjoyed a few. But we had yet to find Kari’s precious fullbodied red. And we found it at Cherry Point Estates, just a few minutes northeast of us. Cherry Point was hopping — lots of cars, lots of music and lots of wines (they even served up a great paella, free of charge). We started with the whites but I knew Kari was getting impatient for that red because she kept eyeing the next bottle (they served the wine from lightest to boldest). Not surprisingly, the last bottle finally satisfied her need for a full-bodied wine.

❚ Magnolia Hotel & Spa, Victoria’s four-diamond, European-style luxury boutique hotel, is a great place to start your tour of the Island’s wineries. The Magnolia caters to business and vacation travellers, along with their pets. Don’t forget to check out Spa Magnolia, a full-service AVEDA spa that offers personalized treatments to rebalance, rejuvenate and refresh. I highly recommend the spa’s facial treatments. The Magnolia Hotel & Spa, 623 Courtney St., Victoria. Reservations: 1-877-MAGNOLIA (624-6654). ❚ Merridale Ciderworks is located on the southeast coast of Vancouver Island, about 40 minutes north of Victoria and 80 minutes south of Nanaimo. Try the Scrumpy Cider. You’ll love it, especially if you like Scotch. Merridale Ciderworks, 1230 Merridale Rd., Cobble Hill, 1-250-743-4293. ❚ Situated at the south end of the Cowichan Valley, Silverside Farm and Winery produces berry wines and fortified (port style) dessert wines. Silverside also offers jams, jellies and fruit vinegars made right there on the farm. Silverside Farm, 3810 Cobble Hill Rd., Cobble Hill, 1-877-743-9149. ❚ Great wines and a killer Spanish paella can be found at Cherry Point Estate Wines, 840 Cherry Point Rd., Cobble Hill. ❚ B.C.

Robert Munsch is Stephen HUNT back to focusing on what Postmedia News Service he does best, which is entertaining generations of young readers. Munsch, who’s in Western Canada for a round of storytelling performances, was suddenly transformed recently from one of the world’s bestselling children’s authors — beloved for stories that feature humour, action and irony — into one of those celebrities in need of rehab. During an interview with Global Television in May, he admitted to a history of alcohol and cocaine abuse he said he used to dull the impact of his bipolar disorder. “When I was drinking, I would sometimes drink too much and do stupid things,” he said to the show’s host. “One of the stupid things I did was use cocaine.” That created a frenzy around the author whose books, including The Paper Bag Princess, Angela’s Airplane, David’s Father and Love You Forever, have sold tens of millions of copies. But now, the 64-year-old Munsch, whose earliest fans have children of their own, is as busy as ever, and his travels include two dates at Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey on Thursday, Oct. 14. He’s still taking his inspiration from the best of all possible sources: kids themselves, who frequently possess exactly the unique take on life that makes for a perfect Munsch yarn. Recently, Munsch met a girl on a plane and she became the inspiration for his new book, Too Much Stuff. “I was on a flight to Calgary, where I met a girl with 10 dolls stuffed in her backpack,” he says. “I introduced myself to her and her mother, and made up a story about her backpack.… Then, I was talking to (publisher) Scholastic Books about it,” he adds. “It

Children’s author Robert Munsch is in Surrey for two shows Thursday, Oct. 14. was not long after one of those bombers got caught trying to blow up a plane somewhere. As a result, they banned carry-ons. The Scholastic people said, ‘You can’t do a story about carry-on luggage when carry-on luggage is banned!’ Luckily, though, the ban has since been reversed, and the book is scheduled for publication — yet one more you can add to Munsch’s bibliography. His impressive and enduring output is made even more impressive, when you take into account that he didn’t set out to be a legendary children’s storyteller. Born in Pittsburgh, he developed his knack for storytelling by working at day-care centres in Massachusetts and Ontario in the 1970s.

ROBERT MUNSCH: “There are no props (on stage). I tell the stories. It sounds boring, but when you have 1,000 kids sitting there listening, it becomes fun.”  continued from page 12 “For 10 years, I was just telling stories and inventing stories,” he says. “I worked at the University of Guelph. It was just fun, until a bunch of faculty members convinced me to publish the stories.” The first was Mud Puddle in 1979, which tells the story of school plagued by a heap of mud that hides in trees and drops on kids. It sold moderately, but successive titles did better and better, thanks to Munsch’s legendary readings at schools and libraries. Love You Forever, released in 1986, is reputed to have sold more than 15 million copies, and may be the top-selling Canadian book ever written. “I didn’t think it was going to be a job, and it grew,” Munsch says. “I was a bad speller. I still can’t spell.” But, he adds, “spelling has nothing to do with making up good stories!” And, over the years, Munsch hasn’t found himself having to change or adapt his style or his tales to keep in line with our speededup, tech-obsessed, over-scheduled age. “In my stories, I haven’t noticed any difference (over the years),” he says, before adding a caveat to that. “It isn’t regional (or generational),” he says. “It’s rural versus urban. Downtown Vancouver is a

lot more like downtown Toronto than it is like Nelson, or Hope (both in British Columbia).” He offers, as an illustration, a new story: “I have a new story, about a moose,” he says. “In it, the father asks his kid to go inside and get his gun. When my publisher in Toronto read that, he said, ‘You can’t have a gun in a kid’s story!’ But in North Bay, people go outside. People are familiar with guns. It means something different (from what a gun in Toronto means).” Regarding his shows, Munsch says don’t come expecting a Kiss concert for kids; there’s no fog, no lasers and no flames shooting out of the speakers. In fact, there are hardly any speakers. “In whatever place I’m at, I come out on stage,” he says. “There are no props. I tell the stories. It sounds boring, but when you have 1,000 kids sitting there listening, it becomes fun.” The pace of the show, he says, suits where he is these days. In 1990, Munsch was diagnosed as bipolar, and a few years ago, suffered a stroke, which he says he only recently recovered from. “It’s a yearand-a-half now, and I’m pretty much back,” he says. “Every once in a while, I have to ask the audience where I am. Every once in a while, I’ll draw a blank.” But, he says, current and future generations of kids need not worry; he has no plans to slow down. “I’m going to keep writing stories and keep telling them,” he says. “I can’t keep up with kids’ ideas.” ❚ Author Robert Munsch is live on stage during his “Love You Forever” tour at Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey on Thursday, Oct. 14, for a 10:30 a.m. show for school students only (sold out) and also for a public show at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for the public show are $20 plus service charges.

The other day, I found myself cleaning out my purse, which had become so overstocked, I could barely lift it. I was surprised at some of the things I discovered lying within. I found several different types of papers, including bills, receipts, old grocery lists and bank statements. The reason for keeping the outdated papers is to ensure that I can always go back if I ever need to return clothing or toys — or use as evidence to my husband, who forgot to pick up an item I wrote out explicitly on the grocery list. I discovered several different toys, including a skateboard from McDonald’s,

Mom’sLife

Purse reveals plenty about me

a Hello Kitty watch and a pack of crayons and child flash cards. This is to ensure that wherever I go, my children will always have some kind of entertainment — especially during those times Kelley SCARSBROOK when they are waiting for their sibling to finish their dance or soccer class. I never want to be ill-prepared when the inevitable words of “I’m bored” arise. Forty sheets of hand-wipes were stashed in one of the side compartments, along with Kleenex, Band-Aids, hand sanitizer and Tide pen. I’ve been that mom on the playground who was at a loss, when one child showed up with a bloodied knee, while the other one was holding a worm in their hands. You’ll never guess which one was my four-yearold daughter in that circumstance; but

suffice it to say, I want to be ready when situations like these arise. In my purse, I found three lip-glosses, four hair bands, six bracelets, watereddown perfume, sunglasses and three rings. All of these items belong to my daughter, who feels the need to change her look at a moment’s notice and has grown wise to slipping it in to my purse when I’m not looking. I can’t really justify all these items, but I gotta hand it to her — the kid’s good. Six granola bars were revealed on one side of my purse, along with three packs of half-used gum. I’m not sure why I have six unopened granola bars, but as any mom knows, sometimes when one kid at school is eating one, the rest want one, too. So if I’m ever faced with an army of hungry kids, I’m ready. The vast amount of gum is probably due to the fact that I never want to be the mom on the playground with bad coffee breath. And if any mom is ever

in need, they now know where to come. One side compartment was stuffed with two pairs of my son’s socks, one pair of my daughter’s socks and two hairbrushes. I am a firm believer that if I can change their socks and comb their hair, they can look somewhat presentable in a pinch. Finally at the very bottom of my purse, I unearthed my cellphone, Bluetooth and wallet. And yes, the irony is not lost on me. As I stared at all these items lying outside of my purse, I realized that I don’t want to really part with any of them (well, I think my daughter can let go of a few lip-glosses). But there is a reason I carry all this stuff. I’m a mom. And all these things that I carry in my purse reflect a life that isn’t all about me. It’s about them. So I’ve decided to keep the contents of my purse. On the outside, it may appear excessive and cluttered. But to me, it holds my world. www.thestayathomemother.com

Yearly food drive rolls out from Delta school this Thursday night

NOT

These Delview Secondary students are among the approximately 500 student, staff and parent volunteers hoping to fill boxes with food during the North Delta school’s 18th annual Thanks 4 Giving drive, which happens Thursday, Oct. 14. Volunteers will go door-to-door that evening for donations, which are later given to Deltassist and Surrey Food Bank for distribution to families in the area. Last year, more than 14,500 food items were collected, down slightly from the record 16,155 in 2008. If volunteers don’t come knocking on your door, call 604594-5491 or drop by the school (6111 116th St.) to donate to the cause. —Tom Zillich ❚PHOTO/Sharon Doucette

Our facials and body wraps are equally luxurious and in keeping with our natural surroundings we use only 100 percent organic Eminence skin care products. And what would the perfect get-away be without satisfying one’s palette? Chef Patrick Sinclair and his team fulfill this beautifully, serving up West Coast cuisine with a twist. You’ll find our ocean view restaurant offers the luxury of four-star dining in a casual setting, so no need to pack something elegant (unless you want to). In fact, should you call the front desk to inquire if there’s a dress code, you may hear: “yes, please come dressed!” Time and again our guests say that Rockwater is a place where they can truly let their hair down.

Ferry-tale trip planning: BC Ferries opens new centre. Waterborne vacation planning hub in Vancouver, BC is a one-stop shop for booking a ferry-based trip.

'(!77(72#(%%25 reef"o&nt.ottages(.om

by Margo Pfeiff 31 May 2010

British Columbia’s coastline is carved up into a mosaic of islands and fjords that make ferries a vital—and fun and scenic— way to travel. BC Ferries, one of the world’s biggest ferry transport systems, has been doing the job for half a century, sailing to 47 ports of call from Victoria to Prince Rupert. To help folks book an entire ferry-based vacation, BC Ferries opened a BC Ferries Vacations Centre on May 11. It’s on the main floor of the swanky new Fairmont Pacific Rim on the Vancouver, BC, waterfront. While you’re there, drop in at the gift shop to pick up local art, jewellery, crafts and books from around coastal British Columbia. First you tap on an 8.4-sq-m (90-sqft) high-definition touch-screen media wall to peruse info and photos of over 20 BC coastal vacation packages. Plan a circle route by ferry hopping between the mainland and coastal islands. Think of it as a road trip with a marine component. And, starting this spring on the mainland to Vancouver Island route with partnership from C Spa, an onboard spa will have you indulging in a manicure, pedicure or chair massage while afloat. You can hopscotch through the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island on a culinary tour to nibble local cheeses and wines, then drive through old-growth forests to surf the rollers of Long Beach in Tofino. Paddle a kayak up dramatic fjords along the Sunshine Coast, taking a break to peek in at galleries along the Purple Banner Route.

Or head north on the Northern Expedition ferry from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert. It’s an affordable way to cruise the Inside Passage and sets you up to ferry on the Northern Adventure ferry across to exotic, misty Haida Gwaii (formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands) for a fishing adventure or a west coast “wildlife safari” in Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. Once you’ve picked and planned your trip, one of the human planners will book every last detail down to the accommodation, rental car, canoe or bike rental and fishing gear you think you might need. Then all you have to do is walk or drive on board.

Are you up to the Zero Waste Challenge?

We’ve got a long way to go to get a grip on our garbage. Take a look at the garbage you and your family take to the curb each week. Now reduce that by 70 per cent. That’s what your garbageday reality could look like five years from now. Metro Vancouver has set a lofty goal of reducing the amount of garbage requiring disposal by 70 per cent by 2015. That target is part of the region’s Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan.

The plan is far from simple, and includes a contentious waste-to-energy proposal that has been opposed by residents worried that an incinerator will have a detrimental effect on air quality. Others say a properly designed and managed waste-to-energy facility makes the most sense for the long-term handling of our solid waste. A 5,000-page report is now in the hands of the Ministry of the Environment, and it will be some time before a decision is made on the fate of the overall plan.

In the meantime, Metro Vancouver is encouraging residents to start taking steps now to reduce the amount of solid waste they create. The Zero Waste Challenge includes a number of tips for individuals who want to be ahead of the waste-management curve. For instance, take a look at how much food you are tossing into the garbage bin. It’s probably more than you think. see page 20

Eco-friendly eating is easy Brendan Brazier is the antidote to the misguided idea that veganism drains a person of the energy to live an active life. The 35-year-old from North Vancouver is a former professional Ironman triathlete who still runs, bikes and swims almost every day. And he’s a vegan. You might think Brazier has drunk the vegan Kool-Aid. Actually, he invented his own, much healthier drinks, as part of his award-winning Vega line of vegan whole-food energy products. To spread the word on the benefits of plant-food nutrition, he has written two Canadian bestsellers: The Thrive Diet: The whole foods way to losing weight, reducing stress, and staying healthy for life (Penguin Canada, $24) and Thrive Fitness: Mental and Physical Strength for Life (Penguin Canada, $24). We challenged him to come up with five ways people can make their eating choices not just healthier, but more eco-friendly: CHOOSE WISELY A huge amount of land, water and fuel is used to produce food. But “across the board, plant foods are more efficient” to produce than meat, Brazier argues. You get 30 kilograms of meat per hectare per year where cattle is raised. Contrast that with 158 kilograms of hemp seed or 6,912 kilograms of kale produced on average per hectare per year. It takes a minimum of 9,475 litres of water to produce just 450 grams of beef. Compare this with 1,895 litres of water at a potato farm to produce the same amount of potatoes. And here’s a shocking statistic that supports eating plants over meat: 70 per cent of food grown in North America is grown for animal feed (mostly corn, wheat and soy). EAT LOCAL This one’s simple: The less transportation used to produce and deliver food, the fewer greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere. Transportation accounts for 11 per cent of greenhouse-gas (CO2-equivalent gases) emissions. So try to prioritize buying foods that travelled as few kilometres as possible to reach your table. EAT BY SEASON Make your diet reflect the foods that have recently been harvested. This will provide you with fresh food that is healthier. Stock up on these foods during the growing season and freeze and/or preserve your favourite foods so you can raid your freezer or pantry all year long. EAT NUTRIENT-DENSE FOOD This will reduce the amount of food you eat, because nutrient-dense foods curb your appetite sooner than non-nutritious foods. Refined, less nutrient-dense foods such as white bread, for example, require far more calories before your brain turns off the hunger signal. Leafy greens are particularly nutrient-rich, but any greens will do. Other nutrient stars are fruits, hemp seed and hempseed oil, flax, chlorella and spirulina. This will not only make you healthier, it will also reduce the amount of food farmers produce and transport for your consumption. GROW YOUR OWN FOOD You can grow hundreds of kilograms of healthy, tasty food in your own yard. The soil in your yard is often nutrientrich, because it hasn’t been depleted through decades of farming. Plus, Brazier reminds us: “It just seems so much more valuable when you grow it yourself.” — Trent Edwards, Postmedia News Service

Look at your food purchasing, preparing habits from page 19 (Metro Vancouver pegs the average at 40 per cent of total household waste.) You can tackle this from two angles. First, consider your food purchasing and preparing habits. Are you throwing out spoiled food every week? Maybe it’s time to cut back on how much you buy at one time. And if you are preparing more than you consume, make sure you plan ahead to use your leftovers rather than tossing them. Freeze portions for meals on another day, load up

your re-usable containers with a healthy home-cooked lunch, or get creative and turn your leftovers into nutritious soups or stews. Second, take a look at backyard composting. If you live in an apartment, or you want to introduce a composting program for your office, then consider getting a worm bin. Reducing the use of disposable products can have a big impact on how much garbage is produced at home, at work and throughout the community in general. Single-use items, such as disposable coffee cups and plastic water bottles, are everywhere. Plan ahead:

Purchase refillable containers and then don’t forget them as you are rushing out the door. Whether you want to sip a latte or quench your thirst with cool water, you can usually avoid using a disposable cup or bottle. Challenge your co-workers to do the same, and make it a priority to teach your children that throw-away containers are not the best option. Buy them reusable containers that they can decorate with stickers and other fun stuff to make them unique and identifiable — and something they will be proud to show off to their friends.

534/4,3 4('#)*% #03 '.10# 2(/$ Don’t forget to include any capless, cleaned and crushed milk containers on your trip to the Return-It Depot. There’s no deposit when you buy so there’s no refund when you Return-It. It’s the only way to keep them out of our landfills and recycle them into something new.

Recycling the smart way starts with a reorganized kitchen There’s nothing more annoying than running out of kitchen counter space because you’ve got a pile of empty tins, yogurt and juice containers waiting to be recycled. Is it time to clear off your counters and take stock of the amount of space under you sink? Is the space under your sink being taken over by special cleansers that are only used every few months like silver polish, floor wax and roasting pan scrubbers? Or maybe your cupboard hosts a bag of empty grocery bags? Why not prioritize the space for sorting out your garbage and recycling — activities

you do every single day? If you’re not using your cleansers at all, look up your closest Product Care site and get rid of them safely. Do not pour them down the drain, as the environment doesn’t want them either. This is not to suggest you stop cleaning your house, but like many people, you might want to switch to using fewer chemicals when cleaning your home. Check out metrovancouverrecycles.org for info that can help get rid of your old cleansers. If you are using chemical cleansers, decide where else they can go — maybe under the

bathroom sink? In the basement? Is there room to add a shelf high up in the pantry or shoe closet? If you have a large “bag of bags” where plastic bags are shoved into one another, forming a space-wasting, earth-sized ball of plastic, take them back to your grocery store for recycling. Then commit to switching to reusable bags so as not to build up a ball of bags ever again. If you need a few as kitchen catchers, store them up high on a hook in a cloth bag. How big is your garbage bin, and can something smaller do the trick? A smaller garbage

bin is good motivation to make sure you recycle everything you can. Once you have cleared out the space under your sink, give it a good wipe down with white vinegar to get rid of any odours. Vinegar is an amazing cleanser. Now think about the number of bins, cans or boxes you will need to make it easy to sort your recyclables. Make fun signs labelling the new sorting containers like “well-read newsprint,” “flattened cardboard,”“unavoidable plastic bottles,”“milk and juice containers for the depot.” — courtesy of Metro Vancouver

Recycle Your Old TV And Save On Your Energy Bills

Recycling is not just for paper and plastic anymore. Now you can also recycle your old TVs, computers, monitors, printers and fax machines – and save money at the same time. “Most people don’t know that the extra TV they’ve got sitting upstairs in the guest room where it gets used maybe once a year is actually costing them money every day,” says BC Hydro’s Kari Reid, Program Manager in Residential Marketing. “As long as that TV is plugged in – whether it’s turned on or not – it’s using energy. And it’s adding up on their electricity bills.” Virtually all electronic devices – TVs, computers, printers, modems, DVD players, cell phone chargers and anything else with a clock, timer, adapter, memory or remote control – continue to draw power even when they’re not in use. With the average Canadian home today boasting more than 25 electronic devices, you can bet that at least some of those devices remain plugged in, even when they’re old or broken. But just tossing your out-of-date electronics in the local landfill is not the answer. “TVs, like computers and other electronics, have components that should be recycled,” says Kari. “The best thing is to take your unused electronics to a Return-It™ Electronics recycling depot, where they will get broken down safely and properly.” The Return-It™ Electronics recycling program is managed by Encorp Pacific (Canada) on behalf of the Electronics Stewardship Association of British Columbia. The ESABC established the program in 2007 (in addition to its Return-It™ Beverage and Milk Container recycling programs) to respond to the fast-growing issue of e-waste. “New and better products keep coming on the market all the time,” says Kari, “and we’re snapping them up. Who

Milk cartons were invented circa 1915 as an improvement on glass containers. The inventor felt that glass was heavy and breakable, even though it had been working for years. Cardboard didn’t catch on right away. People were used to buying their milk in glass jars. It took until the 1930s for the cardboard containers to be accepted. The cardboard container really took off in the 1960s, when milk distributors realized they were cheaper and required no collection, cleaning or deposit programs to manage. It was easier to just throw them out. One factory alone could make up to 20 million cartons per day. Last year, residents across Metro Vancouver sent approximately 1,400 tonnes of cardboard milk cartons to the landfill. That’s about 42 million containers. This doesn’t include cartons used by schools, hospitals or other businesses and institutions — just houses. We also sent about 200 tonnes of plastic containers (3.5 million containers), and 60 tonnes of glass milk containers to the dump. Milk cartons are made of paper with a wa-

Advertorial

terproof coating. Chlorine is used to whiten the paper, and the containers are dyed into familiar colours. To recycle them, the cartons are shredded and then soaked in something like a massive washing machine, with an agitator in the centre, to remove the waterproof coating. Most of the paper part is reused, and some of the coating can be reused. As there isn’t a local recycling plant, there’s shipping and hauling involved, plus a lot of energy to do the recycling. You can reuse cartons. They are great for art, making bird feeders, starting new seedlings for the garden. But with the average household buying six litres per week, that’s a lot of seedlings — or some very fat birds! In B.C., we have a voluntary return program for cardboard milk cartons. That means that if you take them back to a depot, they will be recycled. They are not collected in municipal curbside programs, unless specifically indicated by your collection service. see page 23

doesn’t want a sleek new flat-screen TV? But some people are just throwing their outdated electronics in the trash, or simply putting them in a drawer or a closet because they don’t know what else to do with them. Some people, too, are just moving them to another room where they stay plugged in but unused – which is just wasting energy. We want to see unused electronics unplugged, then disposed of properly.” “Once you’ve done that,” says Kari, “there are a number of other things you can do to reduce your energy use.” For example: ! Plug all your related electronics, like your computer, modem, monitor and printer, into a single power bar, then switch them all off at once when you’re not using them. ! Switch to a laptop. A typical laptop computer uses approximately 55 kwh/year compared to a typical desktop and monitor that uses approximately 290 kwh/yr. ! Unplug your cell phone and other chargers as soon as the battery is topped up. ! If you’re in the market for a new TV, look for one with the ENERGY STAR® label – it will use as much as 50 per cent less energy than a less-efficient model. ! As a general rule, the larger the TV the more energy it uses. Make sure your TV is the right size for your room by dividing the distance between where you’ll be sitting and the front of the screen by 2.5. “It can take more electricity per year to keep your DVD player in standby mode than it actually uses playing DVDs,” says Kari. “Unplug it or turn it off at a power bar and you’ll save energy. And as I said before, get rid of your unused TV! If just one in 10 households in British Columbia recycled just one unused television, it would save enough energy to provide all of Squamish with electricity for more than a year.” To find out more about the Return-It electronics recycling program or to find a recycling depot near you, please visit return-it.ca/electronics.

Encorp’s School Recycling Program makes fundraising as easy as ABC

from page 22 If you put them in your blue bin and you don’t have a curbside program, some trucks will pick them up, but they will eventually be sorted for the garbage. About four per cent of milk cartons are recycled through depots, which means about 96 per cent go to the landfill. Where can you take them? Encorp Return-It Centres. Remember, because you pay no deposit for them, there is no fee paid upon return. If there were a mandatory recycling program, there would be a small deposit fee, but that would come with set recycling targets, an in-province recycling location, measures and

monitoring just like other mandatory recycling programs (for example, the system used for pop bottles). What are the alternatives? One dairy reports it can sterilize and refill its glass bottles 80 to 100 times each. Now that’s reusing. Local dairy producer Avalon has its glass milk bottles available in many grocery stores across the region. A deposit system ensures most of the bottles are returned and reused. Another option is the plastic jug. They are still a one-use product. However, unlike cartons, they are easily recycled. They are made of one type of plastic, making them a valuable commodity as a recycling material. Over 75 per cent of plastic milk containers are recycled, through both depots and curbside pick up. If you put them curbside, you have to rinse and crush them and remove the lids. Plastic jugs full of air take up a lot of space in a recycling truck, causing extra trips for the garbage collectors. Removing the lids allows the container to dry thoroughly and improves the industrial crushing process. By the way, the first widely available, refillable glass milk jar, invented in the 1800s by a Dr. Thatcher, was called Thatcher’s Common Sense Milk Jar. Maybe it’s time to revisit that name. For more info about recycling and more, go to www.metrovancouver.org. — courtesy Metro Vancouver

Since 2000, about 33 million containers have been recycled, and Encorp has refunded more than $2 million in deposit refunds to participating BC schools.

Education

Encorp’s BC School Recycling Program provides elementary and high schools with the tools and resources to make recycling easy, convenient and profitable. Schools keep 100% of the deposit for each container collected and the program costs them nothing. Elementary and high schools from all parts of British Columbia are encouraged to participate. The schools and the environment both benefit from this popular program. Schools find it’s an easy way to fundraise for special projects like field trips. Keeping beverage containers out of landfills saves precious resources within our environment. The containers are recycled and used as raw material. For example, drink boxes are mashed into paper pulp which is used to make cardboard boxes and toilet paper. Thousands of tonnes of paper pulp are recovered in this process. And for every RECYCLING AT SCHOOL REALLY PAYS OFF

George Pringle Elementary (Westbank) began the 2009/10 school year with a 5 day bottle drive. It was such a success that they decided to collect containers on a monthly basis. One day in every month, parents dropped off their bags and boxes of containers at the school. The grade 6 students and Vice-Principal volunteered to collect juice boxes and other containers from classrooms. This year, the Parent Advisory Committee and teachers decided that the funds from deposit refunds would go towards a year end field trip to Vancouver. They’ve found that recycling is a great way to save the environment while raising money for things that are important to everyone at their school.

RETURN-IT MAN SCHOOL TOUR

Return-It Man, along with his Super Sidekick, visits elementary schools across the province, educating students about recycling beverage containers and electronics. Their fun and entertaining presentation explains how containers are recycled and what they are recycled into. Kids get to actively participate in the presentation and even receive an activity book with a reuseable lunch bag to take home with them.

tonne of paper pulp recycled, approximately 17 trees are saved. Since the program’s inception in 2000, about 33 million containers have been recycled, and Encorp has refunded more than $2 million in deposit refunds to participating BC schools. In the 2009/2010 school year alone, 365 schools (153,334 students) who participated in Encorp’s School Recycling Program raised over $291,000 and they kept over 4.6 million beverage containers out of BC landfills. Encorp’s easy to use web application allows schools to keep a running total of their own returns and compare their totals to other schools. It also features a blogging page where they can share ideas about recycling at school. Throughout the year, registered schools are provided with newsletters to update them on the progress of the program. They’re also eligible to receive free recycling bins and bags to help them collect containers. Encorp has spiced things up by adding an extra incentive. Schools who collect the most containers per student are awarded bonus cash prizes. The contest is designed to allow similarly sized schools across the province to compete against each other in respective categories. Each year, a total of $13,500 is split between the top three schools in each of the nine categories. In addition to the collection contest each year, Encorp holds other draws and contests where students can get creative to win their schools even more cash prizes. What’s more, award certificates are given to individual students and groups to recognize exceptional dedication to helping our environment. Each year provides schools with a brand new opportunity to fundraise. Distributing flyers and collecting containers from surrounding areas is also a great way for schools to develop and foster relationships within their communities. School spirit really pays off thanks to Encorp’s BC School Recycling Program. So start fundraising the easy way! Register your school today at return-it.ca/youth.

Always on move in Surrey’s emergency room SURREY – His shift Amy REID began in the trauma Now Contributor room at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 22. A patient was brought in with a bad dog bite to the left leg that required stitches. Dr. Craig Murray, clinical director of the emergency room at Surrey Memorial Hospital, spent the better part of half an hour working on the wound in the trauma room. He has been the head of emergency for a few months and has worked in the emergency room (ER) for five years. After stitching up his first patient, Dr. Murray moved his attention to the super fast track area. This is an area in the ER where people come with straightforward, easy to fix problems – things like X-rays

and sore ears. As soon as he arrived, he saw two young patients in this area. Dr. Murray took the children and their parents to the X-ray screen, shown on a monitor. He explained what he saw on the monitor and gave instructions for recovery. Less than 10 minutes later, he headed to pediatrics. Several stretchers with patients on them lined the hallway between the super fast track area to the pediatrics room. As he entered pediatrics, he saw a girl who looked about two years old. She had a wound on the side of her head roughly an inch wide and an inch high, but it was hard to tell for sure due to the dried blood. Her mother told Dr. Murray that a glass

vase had fallen and hit her in the head. Dr. Murray told the mother that instead of stitches he would use a glue that will hold the wound together while it heals. In her grandmother’s arms, the once calm young girl shrieked, screamed and wriggled as he applied the glue to her large cut. In less than one minute, he was finished and she calmed down. Though it wasn’t hectic, from the beginning of his shift until 6 p.m., Dr. Murray didn’t have time to stop moving. “I wasn’t in the acute side so the severity of the cases were a lot lighter than usual,” he said at 6 p.m., “but this is sort of normal for working pediatrics and super fast track.” Acute care is for people who are

extremely sick, many of whom come by ambulance. Common problems here are chest pains, heart problems, trauma or respiratory problems. While Surrey Memorial Hospital’s ER is built to see 44,000 patients a year, it currently treats 87,000 annually – which is why stretchers can be seen in the hallway. “We often have 30 to 50 patients over capacity, [and in stretchers in hallways] which blocks the flow. “That’s the reality of it,” Murray said. A new Emergency Centre, slated to be completed in 2013, will provide relief for this problem. The independent building on the hospital grounds will be nearly five times the size of the current space. The new Emergency Centre will have wider corridors, larger treatment spaces, additional soundproofing for noise control and easy access to parking and public transit. “Flow in the emergency department is important,” said Dr. Murray. “To get patients in the door quickly, getting tests arranged, assessing what they have and treating them: The layout of your department can certainly have an affect. “The new department will have a better design in terms of being able to co-ordinate patient care and go for certain tests.” The Emergency Centre will contain a mental health and addictions crisis response unit, an acute patient treatment area that will be significantly larger than the existing space, a minor treatment unit and there will be an entirely separate children’s ER that will help reduce anxiety for children and their families. The cost of the new emergency room is being covered by a $15-million fundraising project by the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation. The new Emergency Centre will be included in the Critical Care Tower that will be constructed at the hospital beginning next year. The entire Critical Care Tower project – funded by the province – is estimated to cost between $500 million to $600 million.
