Don’t move oil by rail, APE says

Advocacy group wants Delta officials to impress upon port that expansion is not welcome at Roberts Bank BY

“As for the actual terminal, the issue is the same as for a second container terminal — adding a man-made island almost half the size of Stanley Park and expanding the port causeway will cause irreparable damage to the Roberts Bank ecosystem. Roberts Bank, as is well documented, is unique on the West Coast in terms of

its environmental values. Further development — be it a container terminal or an oil terminal — has the possibility to destroy critical feeding grounds for migratory birds, break the chain of the Pacific Flyway, as well as further damage critical feeding areas for migratory salmon,” Emsley said. Both CN and CP are planning to vastly increase

delivery of oil by rail. Meantime, Port Metro Vancouver is planning to establish a “Centre of Excellence for Marine Transportation of Oil and LNG Commodities in British Columbia.” The port says early engagement indicates the energy industry, federal government and Alberta will be funding partners.

However, a Port Metro Vancouver official recently told the Optimist that a crude oil or liquefied natural gas offloading facility at Roberts Bank is currently not on the port’s radar. A recent report to Delta council notes that in 2011, 6.7 million tonnes of petroleum products passed through Port Metro Vancouver, and crude

production in Canada is expected to nearly double by 2025, resulting in export levels three or more times greater than current volumes. It’s expected that, by 2025, there could be 17 million tonnes of petroleum products passing through Port Metro Vancouver, necessitating significant increases in handling capacity. Emsley, who recently asked port officials tough questions about the Fraser Surrey Docks coal handling proposal, said what he finds most troubling is the arrogance of the port authority when it comes to its plans. “I attended their AGM last week. It was all puff and PR. The more they talk about sustainability, the less they actually practice it,” he said. Noting his questions on issues and problems with port truck traffic went unanswered, Emsley added, “We are at the tipping point and I can assure you that environmental groups — ours included — are ready to do battle.” The last time there was talk of a petroleum facility coming to South Delta was 1974 when the B.C. Research Council carried out studies for the B.C. Petroleum Corporation.

nity to hear first-hand what Port Metro Vancouver may be planning, particularly with respect to any plans which may involve the movement of crude oil by rail or pipeline through the Delta community.” The report also notes there is major concern regarding recent

reports that the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act does not apply to the exportation of petroleum products from the Alberta tar sands by rail. An initiative is underway by Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway to eventually deliver huge amounts of crude, dubbed the “pipeline on rails” plan. Roberts Bank has direct rail con-

nections to Alberta and the B.C. Interior. However, Wilson noted when the coal terminal was built at Roberts Bank in the late 1960s, a stipulation at that time was that no liquid bulk be handled there. “In order for us to even contemplate even looking at it, that is something that would have to be revisited.”. “So, it’s not something that’s in the near term. In

the long term, I suppose there is a possibility that could be considered, but we have no plans at the present time to do that.” The delegation’s trip to Norway will take place June 18 to 21. The total cost for Jackson and Harvie to attend will be $16,000. “With the increasing demand to ship oil and LNG through B.C.’s ports, and the controversy

surrounding tanker traffic along the B.C. coast, the Norway delegation is timely and will allow the participants to develop a better understanding of best practices in liquid bulk handling, including spill response and prevention, training and equipment standards, community engagement, enforcement and funding,” the report to council states.

Delta should send a clear message that enough is enough when it comes to port expansion at Roberts Bank, says Against Port Expansion’s Roger Emsley. Asked for his take on Mayor Lois Jackson and CAO George Harvie being part of a fact-finding delegation this month to Norway to learn about the liquid bulk shipping industry, as well as find out the potential implications for future petroleum export activities in Delta, Emsley is pleased to see them take part. He said he hopes the Delta duo uses the opportunity to send Port Metro Vancouver the message that Delta isn’t going to accept any further industrial development in the sensitive and important ecosystem. “The rumours that have been circulating for a while that Roberts Bank could become an oil export terminal are a real concern to many people that I speak to. Setting aside the limitations of current rail infrastructure serving Deltaport — a single track — moving oil by rail is even more risky than a pipeline. Both CN and CP have experienced accidents and spills,” he said.

Port Metro Vancouver says it has no plans to make Roberts Bank a major hub for oil and liquefied natural gas exports.

Metro board to hear plans to ship U.S. coal

June 14, 2013 The Delta Optimist A5

Century Cuts for Cancer raises $6,500

Delta has concerns over dust BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

A big crowd is expected to attend Metro Vancouver’s board of directors meeting today to voice their opinions on a controversial proposal by Fraser Surrey Docks to handle millions of tonnes of American thermal coal. It will be the closest thing to a public hearing on the proposal, although the regional district doesn’t have the power to halt Port Metro Vancouver from approving the application. Fraser Surrey Docks has submitted an application to the port authority to handle coal for export to Asia. The port wants to develop part of its 63-hectare site on the south side of the Fraser River to transfer coal brought in by rail from Wyoming. It would be loaded directly onto barges and towed by tug to Texada Island, where it would be transferred into storage to wait for ocean-going freighters. Fraser Surrey Docks is also looking at a potential long-term doubling of that coal capacity. Delta’s only current coal facility is Westshore Terminals at Roberts Bank, which transfers over 20 million tonnes a year. The

coal there is stockpiled, while the proposed Fraser Surrey Docks facility would transfer coal directly onto barges. The proposal has met fierce resistance from environmental groups and concerned citizens. Metro Vancouver’s environment and parks committee voted to oppose the plan. A report to Delta council this week notes Port Metro Vancouver’s response to the comments submitted by Delta regarding the coal proposal does not directly address monitoring of dust along the rail corridor through North Delta. Air quality monitoring is proposed at the terminal and on the coal barges, but not along the rail line. Delta wants dust monitoring along the rail corridor with a provision to implement further dust control measures. Delta listed other concerns as well, but hasn’t gone so far as to oppose the project. Port Metro Vancouver says it applies its Air Action Program for all projects within its jurisdiction. Applicants are directed to identify strategies to “keep clean areas clean” and incorporate continuous improvement into their proposed projects.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW It’s hard to argue with a move that will save the municipality a couple hundred grand, so Delta council’s decision to grant Scott Hamilton a leave rather than hold a by-election makes a lot of fiscal sense. On Monday, Hamilton’s civic colleagues granted his request for a leave of absence until early in 2014, at which time the newly-elected Liberal MLA for Delta North will officially resign his council seat. By then, it will be close enough to the date of the next municipal election that a by-election won’t be necessary. This nifty piece of regulatory stickhandling means Delta taxpayers won’t be on the hook financially because of a civic politician’s pursuit of greener pastures, although municipal hall will be forced to operate with one less council member for the next 18 months. Instead of a mayor and six councillors, there will be just five, which doesn’t sound like a big deal to you and me, but certainly becomes an issue every time said politicians decide to grant themselves a bump in pay. When Delta council members voted themselves raises of six per cent (mayor) and eight per cent (councillors) last May, it brought their salary increases to about 40 per cent over a five-year period. One of the justifications for the overly generous series of pay hikes, beyond the comparables with other jurisdictions, was the fact Delta has fewer elected representatives than other areas, thus there’s a greater workload on politicians here. “It is normal practice for municipalities with a population of over 50,000 to employ eight councillors,” stated a civic staff report at the time. “Employing the lesser number of council members in Delta translates into additional workload per individual as work items such as council committees need to be distributed amongst fewer members.” The report also noted that at a population of roughly 100,000, Delta is the largest municipality in the province that continues to employ a mayor and only six councillors. Perhaps I got the wrong impression, but I took all that to mean that Delta should probably have eight councillors and that the six we do have are being stretched to the limit, so should be compensated accordingly. If that’s the case, then how will they make do with just five for the next year-and-a-half? I guess they’ll figure out a way, given it was council members that were the ones to approve Hamilton’s leave, but didn’t they just hinder their own bargaining position in the process?

Chung Chuck was a colourful character in area’s early days DOUG HUSBAND

COMMUNITY COMMENT Chinese pioneers arrived in Delta in the 1880s after working in the gold fields, railway construction and road building. They were attracted to the Ladner area as work was readily available on farms, with salmon fishing and its canneries lining the banks of the Fraser River. Much of Delta’s early road building was accomplished with Chinese labour. Over time, some 400 Asian men settled in the area of West River Road and 47A Avenue in Ladner. They built their housing adjacent to and on the river as well as stores and restaurants to meet their needs. Many of the early structures in their community were seriously damaged in an extensive fire in 1929. In 1909, Chung Mor Ping, 11 at the time, and his father came to Canada from Canton, China and soon arrived in Ladner. The young Chinese lad became known as Chung Chuck and a lifetime resi-

dent of Ladner. He attended public schools in Ladner and New Westminster as well as a private school. Chung Chuck became the highest profile member of Delta’s Chinese community and well known throughout B.C. for his legal exploits. Citizens in Mainland China had survived centuries of hard times by outsmarting their overlords. It seems Chung Chuck brought this tenacity and character with him, much to the chagrin of those in authority locally. Immigration laws in those earlier times only permitted Chinese males to enter Canada and they were subject to the controversial head tax. Chung’s advice from his father was: “Work hard, get a good education, save your money, buy land and be a good Canadian citizen.” In 1929, Chung Chuck, already in the farm business and growing potatoes, built his first home/storage shed and emblazoned it with a large painted logo: “Chung Chuck Potato Grower.” Chung was driven to succeed in this strange new land and in his own independent way. In the 1930s, Lower Mainland crop farmers were facing a price war with U.S. border states shipping produce into B.C. The B.C. government was persuaded to set up a marketing board, thus regu-

lating the business and pricing of product. This set the stage for unrelenting conflict between Chinese farmers led by Chung Chuck and the “boards” that attempted to control and regulate the price and flow of product to the consumer. The “board” was successful in 1936 in shutting down Chung’s sale of potatoes from his home. Unrepentant, Chung was not willing to pay the marketing board for washing, grading, storing and shipping his potatoes. He reasoned, correctly as it turned out, he could do it cheaper with direct sales to his customers. Legislation was enacted making “bootlegging potatoes” illegal. Chung Chuck was jailed and released and continued with his direct sales, expanding into Cloverdale, Langley and Hammond, sometimes camouflaging his product. During this turbulent time with authorities, Chung married Mary Lee in 1940 and they raised five children, Vickie, Joyce, Frances, Winch and Napoleon. Ever the contrarian, Chung Chuck was resistant of all authority to control his business and his personal liberty. The legal battles were just beginning. To be continued. And a good night to you, Janet.

June 14, 2013 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

The Tsawwassen Medical Clinic is pleased to announce

Even greater savings to be realized if more councillors granted leave

Editor: Re: By-election averted as councillor gets leave, June 12 I read this article in utter amazement. The councillor is going to take a “leave” so Delta council won’t have to have a costly by-election. Then in the next paragraph, he plans on taking part in as many council

meetings as he can, especially to ensure council has a quorum. The question becomes: Just how do politicians define leave? The article goes on to further state that when his “leave” is up on Jan. 7, 2014, it is close enough to the November 2014 civic election that a by-election won’t be required. If council can function

with a councillor on leave until January, and then for nearly a year without a councillor, why not give a leave to another one, two or three of them and reap more savings?

Editor: Re: Another cause for Huntington to champion, letter to the editor, June 5 I have been managing my auto-immune disease for almost 13 years. The hospital treatment I received was not working (i.e. remission lasted a few weeks). My specialist was able to have me treated with a much more effective treatment. This new treatment also cured a chronic and

very painful arthritis subcondition (saving even more money). The less effective treatment cost the B.C. health care system approximately $180,000 to 200,000 (June 2010 to September 2011) as opposed to approximately $20,000 for the more effective treatment for the same period of time. Since October 2011, I have been corresponding with the minister of health,

the premier’s office and other politicians without success of even a direct response, except for an email from Pharmaceutical Services describing policy. There must be many more patients out of the approximate 50 autoimmune diseases in Canada that are costing our health system big dollars because of policies regarding more effective treatments. Bill Jones

Dr. Adrian Wladichuk is joining our practice. He welcomes new patients to his Family Medicine practice.

Delta council should hold the required by-election. Delta politicians continually rationalize situations to suit their needs, with the usual result that we, the voters, are poorly served. This is just another example of why I, and a large number of the population, hold all politicians in such low esteem. Robert W. Craig

CAPTIN Toyota continued its support of local communities with a $10,000 donation last month to Reach Child and Youth Development Foundation to help build a centre in Ladner for children and youth with special needs. “We are grateful for this donation,” said Barbara Wallick, chair of Reach Child and Youth Development Foundation, “It will go a long way towards our Building for Children Together project goal of building a new 20,000-square-foot facility in the heart of Ladner that will fill the need for a more accessible, community-based centre for children and youth with autism, Down syndrome, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. The new centre will also provide an inclusive preschool with an accessible community playground and a large meeting room for community use.” CAPTIN president Ray Tanguay said the donation

reinforce our values. Reach represents the values in our Toyota Cares program and the role we play in community.” Canadian Autoparts Toyota, Inc. (CAPTIN) was incorporated in 1983 by Toyota Motor Corporation and is responsible for die design, development and manufacturing of aluminum wheels for Toyota.

In addition to this donation, CAPTIN was a presenting sponsor at the Reach for the Stars: An Evening of Inspiration event in February that brought in close to $50,000 for Reach’s building campaign and donated two sets of custom rims to the event’s silent auction. This fall, CAPTIN will once again be supporting Reach’s annual general meeting by sponsoring children’s activities and volunteering employees for the day. The Building for Children Together campaign is a partnership between Reach, the Corporation of Delta and the Ladner Tsawwassen Kinsmen Club. Delta has provided the land at Memorial Park, while Reach and the Kinsmen are raising the $4 million to build the centre. Reach welcomes donations from community and service groups, corporations, businesses and individuals. Call 604-946-6622 or visit www.reachdevelopment.org.

Twenty enthusiastic volunteers from Telus spent one morning last month working with Earthwise staff on the farm providing much-needed assistance in the fields. The volunteers transplanted lettuce and squash, planted beets, corn and Swiss chard, prepared garden beds, seeded trays of

cauliflower and red cabbage, and moved a lot of compost. The efforts of the Telus volunteers will be realized as the growing season progresses and the Earthwise Harvest Box program begins this month. With the help of eager volunteers, Earthwise is able to maintain crop

preparation and planting. Corporate teams and groups are invited to volunteer on the farm and in the garden year round. This year Telus celebrated its eighth annual Telus Day of Giving, where more than 13,000 team members, retirees, friends and family members volunteered their time with local organiza-

Are you looking for the ultimate "Lap Cat"? Look NO further! This is the girl for you!! Poppy was surrendered due to her owners no longer being able to handle their allergies (no fault of her own) They described Poppy as the most friendly, gentle and easy-going cat they have ever met. Poppy is great around ALL children and very gentle and tolerant of them. She enjoys going outside on nice summer days and lounging with her family on the patio. She was living with another cat, though she did not enjoy his company, she was tolerant of his presence. A home all to her own is what Poppy would love! OH, with lots of people to love or lots of love to give one person, either works for her!.

Happy Father’s Day This Sunday, Father’s Day, is an important day in the lives of many. Everyone, like it or not, has a father. Some may have fond memories of their fathers, some may not. Some memories are distant and some are of step, foster or even grandfatherfather figures. My biological father was killed in a motorcycle accident when I was a year old. My mother later married my stepfather and he has always been known as Dad. Now I would love to say my stepdad was the perfect dad. I would like to say that, but like all fathers, he made mistakes. Despite his mistakes, there was never a doubt of how much he cared for my older brother and me, and

TEED GUARAUNLTS! RES

when my two younger siblings came along, never once did he treat us as second-class children. Perfect or not, my dad showed me I was his son. As a pastor and believer in Jesus Christ, I am reminded of God the Father’s love as well. The difference is God’s love is perfect. He took a horrible and wretched sinner like myself and adopted me into His family. He washed my filthy sin in baptism, He clothed me in His righteousness and He forgives me when I, like a teenager, yell, back talk and defy Him. At times, He scolds me like a parent, but He continues to show me that I am His Son. Happy Father’s Day, Dad.

Delta Hearts running for hospital The Delta Hearts will be raising money for the Delta Hospital Foundation in this month’s Scotiabank Half-Marathon & 5K Run Charity Challenge. The team, which consists of 12 community members, including two fundraisers from the hospital foundation, plans on raising $5,000 for Delta Hospital as well as test their endurance in the half-marathon, set for Sunday, June 23 in Vancouver. The group has already reached 75 per cent of its fundraising goal. “Being active is such an

important part of a healthy life,” said Delta Hearts member Ingrid Barnes,. “I couldn’t be happier to be a part this amazing group of runners working towards two major goals — completing the half-marathon and supporting our hospital that serves the community so well.” This will be the second half-marathon for foundation executive director Veronica Carroll and annual giving manager Lisa Hoglund. “When we were chosen as one of the charities to participate this year, I was

thrilled,” said Hoglund. “Not only could I put my professional fundraising skills to task, but I could also invite others to participate, many of whom know firsthand the incredible impact that Delta Hospital has on our community.” With the foundation embarking on the largest fundraising campaign in its 25-year history, it’s working on creative ways to engage the community to assist in raising $7.5 million. To support the Delta Hearts or one of the individual runners, visit www. tinyurl.com/deltahearts.

New offering from local author Matt McCoy draws on his own experiences for The Kid Who Missed the Bus BY

DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

Tsawwassen author Matt McCoy will be signing copies of his new novel tomorrow at Albany Books. The Kid Who Missed the Bus follows main character Danny Boy Doyle, who’s described on the book’s website as a pro hockey player who’s an “amateur Casanova” and graduate from the “School of Hard Knocks.” “He’s just a guy that does things he wants to do. He goes by his own set of rules and that’s kind of how he’s been his whole life,” says McCoy. McCoy also played hockey professionally and notes while the book is fiction, he drew on some of his own experiences to write it. “It’s about sports and having that drive and that passion to succeed in life.” Originally from Prince Rupert, he played junior hockey in B.C. and Saskatchewan before packing it in and going to school for a degree in marketing. He picked up his hockey career again after getting a chance to play professionally in Europe. “I took it and made the most of it,” he says. McCoy played in Denmark, England and Germany for three years before coming back to North America with a Texas team in the Western Professional League. “I came back to a real job after I blew my knee out,” says McCoy, who’s been a medical representative for over a decade. He published his book, his first, with Central Avenue Publishing, an independent press based in Delta that features writers of original fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction across several genres.

McCoy will be at Albany Books, 1240-56th St., Tsawwassen, tomorrow at 11 a.m. For more on McCoy’s book visit www.thekidwhomissedthebus.com.

Runners ready for annual Jog for a Jug BY

DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

The 32nd annual Jog for a Jug takes place tomorrow south of the border in Point Roberts. The 11.2-kilometre course around Point Bob is a “good, challenging run,” notes Kevin Ridley from the RunInn in Tsawwassen, one of the event’s sponsors. It’s also got some uniqueness in that run-

ners are rewarded with a jug of beer at the end. He described Jog for a Jug as an oldschool fun run. “It’s a really fun day. I think a lot of people like it because it’s more relaxing, not as intense as your typical 10-km race.” The day also includes a kids’ race called Jog for a Mug. Kids get a goodie bag, medal, and a mug of root beer after the one-kilometre run.

Once the runs are wrapped up a barbecue will be held in the parking lot at the Reef Tavern. Both races benefit the Hannah’s Heroes Foundation, which was established in 2007 to raise awareness and funds for pediatric brain cancer research. It was founded in memory of Hannah Hatlen, a little girl from Tsawwassen who was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor and died a year later at five.

Jog for a Jug is scheduled for an 11 a.m. start from the Reef Tavern in Point Roberts. Participants should be mindful to leave enough time to cross the border. Runners can still register the morning of the event. It costs $40 or $50 depending on whether runners get a T-shirt. There’s a suggested donation of $10 for the kids’ run. More information is available at www. runinn.com.

Adjustments help body heal naturally Well on Your Way Alternative medicine is on the rise. According to the Mayo Clinic, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is now used by nearly 40 per cent of adults. While this report was American-based, it would probably be safe to say Canadians use alternative medicine at approximately the same rate. CAM is any medicine or treatment outside the doctor’s office. Ancient healing systems (like Chinese medicine), homeopathy or naturopathy medicine, massage, meditation and even yoga are just some of the alternative approaches to help heal the body. One common CAM therapy that a lot of us have experienced — myself included — is chiropractic care. I stared using chiropractic care years ago to heal a pain in my foot that traditional medicine could not remedy. Ever since then I have been a fan. In simplistic terms, chiropractic care is the movement or manipulation of a specific part of your body. These movements are called adjustments, and the most

common adjustments are made to the spine. Once “adjusted,” the theory is the body is back into proper alignment, allowing it to heal naturally. While most people seek a chiropractor because of low back pain, it can also be used to relieve pain and discomfort in a number of other areas in the body as well, as I saw firsthand with my foot pain. Just recently, I had the displeasure of a pain in the neck (and no it wasn’t from my loving husband this time) and my shoulder, which led me to the doors of Fiskco Health + Performance in Ladner. Dr. Shawna Fiske opened her chiropractic clinic last September. Fiskco Health + Performance is a full-service CAM clinic featuring two chiropractic doctors, a registered massage therapist (RMT) and an acupuncturist (traditional Chinese medicine practitioner). In addition to the clinic itself, the Fiskco team also sets itself apart with the depth of your health history it gathers on your first visit. I was asked about everything ranging from my current sleep patterns, to my exercise levels, my activity levels on my job, my current stress levels and my diet. When I questioned Dr.

Fiske about the thoroughness of the exam, she explained these all aid in the body’s ability to keep every cell healthy and acting to its best potential. Lifestyle and nutrition are the key factors and the foundation to good health; adjustments are secondary. Once she was ready to treat me, she started with muscle release therapy (MRT). This is a form of deep trigger point therapy in which she applies pressure to a muscle that is tight, tender or in a sustained contraction. By applying MRT before an adjustment, Dr. Fiske is able to actively “release” the tissue, making the affected muscle relax, allowing you to receive a better adjustment. Let me warn you, though, it is a tad uncomfortable to have her small but extremely powerful hands jabbing into your tight and shortened muscles. I felt beat up afterwards, but a good kind of beat up. It was a beating I knew would heal me, and heal me it did. To learn more about Fisko Health + Performance, or to book an appointment, visit www. fiskcohealth.com or call 604-946-3713. P.J. Wren is a local personal trainer and writer who can be reached at www.gofitgals.com.

MEMBERSHIP AT BEACH GROVE GOLF CLUB

Great for golf, socializing & networking Beach Grove Golf Club recently welcomed Heather White to the membership. We asked Heather to tell us a bit about herself and to share her thoughts on choosing Beach Grove Golf Club as her new home for golf and social networking. Why Beach Grove? 12 years ago I met my now Rancé who was a member at Beach Grove. After getting to know the course and the then F&B Manager Kevin I ended up getting a job working in the Mixed Grill. Since that day I have dreamt about becoming a member. Over the years I've had the opportunity to play as a guest and each time, whether in the winter or summer, I've been blown away at the conditions of the course. With the gorgeous weather in Tsawwassen and the state of the course, there is nowhere else I'd rather play. Why Golf? My Dad, a former professional hockey player, introduced me to the game of golf after he retired from hockey and took up golf seriously. He was a member at the Glendale in Edmonton and I grew up hanging out at the golf course all summer. Golf is an incredibly challenging sport and a wonderful metaphor for life: anything can happen out there and it's how you respond that makes all the difference. Golf is one of my greatest teachers. It teaches me patience and humility and allows me the opportunity to relish in the beauty of nature. How will you use the club? Of course, the golf course is the highlight of being a member at the club, but I plan to use the amenities as well. As a Business Development Coach, Consultant and Sales Trainer, the club is a perfect spot to host a training seminar or consult with a prospective client. The Mixed Grill offers a casual place to meet up with friends for a drink, and who can forget the epic patio with the best view in Tsawwassen for a summer evening family dinner. Why Now? Since starting my business in 2007, I have been designing it in order to give me the Qexibility and time to pursue my other passions. We just recently moved back to Tsawwassen after living in the city for the past 7 years. So, as they say, the stars have aligned. I now have the time, the means and the locale to make golRng at Beach Grove a top priority.

Mazda gives the CX-5 more power An extra 30 horsepower for the 2014 model results in a peppy family vehicle BY

BRENDAN MCALEER Optimist contributor

Two litres and 155hp is enough for most vehicles. Compact car? Fine. Early Miata with a feathery 1,000 kg curb weight? Stupendous. However, bolt that kind of power to a modern crossover and you’ll have a hard time finding the fun. When Mazda launched its first generation CX-5 last year, it claimed punchy power from its small-bore four-cylinder — but there was something lacking. Sure, spec the car in basic front-wheel-drive with a manual-transmission and you have the spiritual descendant of the old Protege5: plenty of hauling capacity, a willing chassis, and an engine that makes up for a lack of grunt with a willingness to rev.

DL #11029

However, start checking the boxes on everything most people actually want on a family car (automatic transmission, all-wheeldrive, tech goodies) and suddenly — Skyactiv weight-savings or no — the little-crossover-that-could starts feeling a bit over burdened. The steering remains sharp, but load up the kids and show it a hill and it’s more snooze-snooze than zoom-zoom. Turns out the hot-rodders were right, there’s no replacement for displacement. For the 2014 model year, Mazda has outfitted the mid- and top-level trims of their CX-5 crossover with a 2.5L engine. That’s only a pint’s-worth more shove, so does it make a difference? Design First off, a quick overview of everything to like

The CX-5, Mazda’s entry in the crowded crossover market, has clean lines and the power it deserves in the 2014 model. about the old car: Mazda’s clean-sheet design elbows its way solidly into the crowded crossover market with a return to appealing style. In many ways, Mazda

isn’t a direct competitor to mainstream brands like Honda, Toyota and Nissan. It could be argued the stylized M-badge denotes the Japanese equivalent of Volkswagen — not neces-

sarily a luxury brand, but perhaps a premium one nonetheless. Sitting as it does on 19inch alloy wheels, my GTlevel tester certainly looks like it costs more than your

604-278-3185 www.signaturemazda.com

average CR-V or RAV-4 people-hauler. Mazda’s new design-language is called Kodo: Soul of Motion, or something silly like that. Never mind the PR department’s relentless need to label everything with froofy names, this is a handsome little trucklet and should age well in the manner of the 2004-2008 Mazda3. For those of you who immediately thought, “19inch alloy wheels, how much is a set of snow tires that big gonna cost?”, good point. However, while replacing the factory allseason rubber isn’t going to be inexpensive, smaller alloys or steel rims will clear the brakes if you want to run a second winter set, and the mid-line GS comes with the more-sensible 17inch wheels. See MAZDA page 33

2 STORES - Online and in the Richmond Auto Mall


MAZDA from page 32 Environment Business-like or gloomy: pick your adjective. In black, the interior of the CX-5 is very typically Mazda in terms of its nononsense layout and conservative use of colours. Again, think VW-competitor, Spartan, with just a modicum of piano-black trim. There’s plenty of space and the greenhouse provides decent visibility, perhaps better than average for a crossover. However, Mazda primarily builds cars for drivers, so much like the Mazda6, this is a cockpit-like feel, rather than a cruiser’s cabin. Rear seat passengers will have solid leg and headroom. Like most small crossovers, two child or booster seats will pretty much eliminate the possibility of a middle-seat passenger, but three adults could squeeze in for a quick cross-town trip. Mazda has gone with a 40/20/40 split on the rear seat, which allows for a considerable amount of flexibility in cargo hauling. The hatchback has only a moderate slope to it, so overall behind-seat capacity is already good, and the option of folding down the centre section to hold skis

and the like is pretty handy. Performance Now with 184hp from the upgraded 2.5L engine, the CX-5 finally has the power it deserves. Of course, on paper that’s only about the same as a Honda CRV. The two vehicles could not be more different. The Honda is all about laid-back motoring with a view to keeping a careful eye on the fuel-gauge. The Mazda, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to actually know it’s supposed to be a boring family-wagon. When cold, the highcompression Skyactiv engine is a bit clattery. The ride with the 19-inch alloys can be a trifle rough. There’s slightly more windnoise than some competitors. I am running out of nits to pick. The fact is, the CX-5 had one Achilles’ heel and adding an extra 30 horsepower has pretty much fixed it. Anyone who is interested in driving will find the Mazda to be surprisingly good, finally “right-powered” and with a Goldilocks charm. No, it’s not as straightline fast as the old turbocharged CX-7 was, but it’s much more fuel efficient. No, it’s not quite as fuel-

DriveTıme sipping as either the 2.0L or the upcoming diesel will be, but it’s quicker than the former and less expensive than the latter. It’s just right. Features The base ($22,995) GX model still comes with the 2.0L four-cylinder, and comes decently equipped with automatic headlights, USB connectivity and a sixway manual driver’s seat.

Award season begins for Gallagher

Montreal Canadiens standout rookie named Delta’s top pro athlete, Calder Trophy maybe next The award season officially kicked off in his hometown for Brendan Gallagher. The South Delta Minor Hockey graduate was honoured last weekend as pro athlete of year as part of the Delta Sports Hall of Fame champions awards, recognizing athletic excellence in the past 12 months. A bigger honour potentially awaits Gallagher on Saturday night when the Montreal Canadiens forward will find out if he has won the Calder Trophy as the top rookie in the NHL. The 21-year-old former Vancouver Giants star is up against Brandon Saad of the Chicago Blackhawks and Florida’s Jonathan Huberdeau after compiling 28 points, including 15 goals, in 44 regular season games. Four others were also recognized for their achievements: Female Athlete of the Year Paige Collings (softball) This South Delta secondary graduate capped a decorated career at Drexel University in style. The starting catcher was named the Philadelphia school’s female athlete of the year after being named to the ACC Conference First Team for the fourth consecutive time. The Delta Heat

product set several school records in the process including most home runs and led the team in many offensive categories. Youth Athletes of the Year Nicole and Megan McNamara (volleyball) These Grade 10 twins did it all on the volleyball court in the past year. Outdoors, the McNamaras established themselves as two of the best up-and-coming beach players in the country, winning the U18 national title at the age of 15. This summer, they are headed to Puerto Rico to represent Canada at the Youth Olympic Games Qualification Tournament. Indoors, they had major roles in the South Delta Sun Devils’ best season ever that was capped by the Tsawwassen school winning its first-ever provincial “AAAA” championship in December. Both girls were named first team all-stars. They also made a huge impact in club play, helping the Coquitlam Ducks win the U16 national title. Nicole was named provincial MVP while Megan earned the same award at nationals. Now they are looking to help the Ducks repeat at the U17 level. Coach of the Year Bill Olexa (softball) This North Delta resident

Delta’s chief administrative officer George Harvie presents Brendan Gallagher the athlete of the year award at last Saturday’s Delta Sports Hall of Fame banquet of champions. is behind a juggernaut ’96 Delta Heat team that has dominated girls rep softball. In his fourth year at the helm, 2012 was the Heat’s best season yet, culminating with a gold medal finish at the Canadian Bantam “A” Championships. The B.C. champions outscored their opponents 86-10 en route to the title. Despite his team’s tremendous success, Olexa believes it’s important to go to the park and have fun and is well-known for his practical jokes. He also encouraged his players to volunteer

with Delta Special Olympics and the team wore pink uniforms for one tournament for breast cancer awareness. Team of the year Team Daniels (curling) The dedication and hard work of Sarah Daniels, Megan Daniels, Megan Bourassa and Heather Sinclair paid off in a big way. The girls were a major force in high-profile bonspiel events — capturing the B.C. High School championship, the B.C. Juvenile women’s title and the Optimist International Junior

Curling Championship. The last accomplishment was done in dramatic fashion as the Thistle Curling Club foursome edged Alberta in the final. The girls are coached by Ernie Daniels. Volunteer of the Year Cliff Lane (softball) For over three decades, this North Delta resident has devoted countless hours to girls softball. He spent an extended time on the North Delta Softball Association executive and even longer as a coach in the organization.

Islanders control own destiny for at least 2nd place finish Take care of business this weekend and the Delta Islanders will be in excellent position to take a serious run at a top two finish in the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League. The Islanders (9-5) travel to Port Coquitlam (6-7) tonight then return home Saturday to host the last place (1-12) Burnaby Lakers at 7:30 p.m. in Ladner. A pair of victories would set the locals up for their biggest week of the season with just five

Local Tides

games remaining. Delta visits the New Westminster Salmonbellies (8-4) on Tuesday night, then take on the Victoria Shamrocks (8-4) next Saturday in Ladner. Those games will go a long way towards breaking up their current logjam in the league standings behind the defending champion Coquitlam Adanacs (9-3). The Langley Thunder (7-4) are also very much in the mix — a team Delta

will play again on the road July 4. The Islanders helped their cause in a big way last week with a pair of impressive wins. They came through with their biggest road win of the season in Langley (8-6), then returned home to topple the Shamrocks (14-8). Intermediate call-up goalie Ryland Hood was terrific against the Thunder, turning aside 43 shots. The tight affair saw Delta finally

take control on third period goals by Cody Nass and Tyler Nett just 26 seconds apart with less than five minutes to play. Eli McLaughlin led the winners with four points, including a pair of goals. Jon Phillips added a goal and three helpers. Delta jumped the Shamrocks for six goals in the opening period and never looked back in the convincing win.

Yardley rallies late to win B.C. Mid-Amateur crown

Kris Yardley closed a three-shot gap on Andrew Robb to storm back and capture the 2013 Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Abbotsford’s Ledgeview Golf Club. The South Delta secondary graduate and one-time Beach Grove junior standout started his final round not the way he had wanted to, carding two consecutive bogeys. However, his resiliency on the par 70, 6,131 yard layout proved to be the deciding factor as he was able to get his final round back to even-par 70 and post a 212 total (69-73-70), one clear of the field. Andrew Robb started the day three strokes ahead of Yardley, only to give all of them back after a double bogey seven on the difficult par-5 476 yard 5th hole. Yardley was able to birdie the hole, making it an even race from that point on. “I just wanted to come out and have fun. Bogeys and birdies, it really doesn’t matter what we are shooting. We are out here for

a good time,” stated Yardley. “I was able to capitalize on a few good shots after a poor start. Until I got to number 12, and made a bogey. I hit a couple bad shots back-to-back and ended up making a double bogey on 13. I ended up going from having a lead to having to come from behind.” And come from behind he did. Yardley would par holes 14 through 16 and after a bogey by Robb on 16, he would make birdie on the par-3 17th hole, giving himself a one-shot cushion in what he described as “pretty much the difference coming in.” After witnessing a Robb birdie attempt slide wide of the cup, Yardley would twoputt from eight feet and tap in for the win with a big smile on his face. He will be representing B.C. at the Canadian Mid-Amateur, slated for Sept. 3-6 at the Blackhawk Golf Club in Spruce Grove, AB.

Taylor leads Pioneers comeback win

Ladner Pioneers overcame a first period scare to remain perfect in the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association. The Pioneers roared back from a 5-2 first period deficit to edge the Royal City Capitals 14-13 last Thursday. Ladner took control with a pair of goals from Cam Taylor and another from Quinn Waddington to start the second period. Taylor finished the night with five goals and two assists. Waddington added a

hat trick, with singles to Chris Fox, Baun Adlington, Corey Williamson, Scott Boyle and Travis St. Germain. Fox added six assists. Rob Cook got the win in net, stopping 17 shots. The Pioneers (6-0) return to action tonight in Abbotsford against the Valley Rebels. Their next home game is June 27 against the North Shore Indians.

Community effort makes SDSS triathlon a success

South Delta secondary school’s Senior PE and PE Superfit classes took to the water and the streets last month for the 17th annual SDSS Triathlon. The event is comprised of a 200 metre swim, 11 km bike and a 3.5 km run. The swimming leg takes place the at Winskill Aquatic Centre and is a staggered start format, beginning at noon, with 15 people swimming in five lanes. Every 5 minutes a new heat of 15 participants enters the water. The bike route starts at Winskill and heads down to Boundary Bay beach and ends back at the track in front of the school. The run takes students through the community, completing the short Bayview run as designated by the SDSS PE department. Matt Wollin was the top male finisher with a time of 35:23. He was followed by Mackenzie Connors (36:12) and Callum Ayres (37:21). Laura Paterson was the overall girls winner with a clocking of 42:48. Also reaching the podium were Libby Pritchard (42:58) and Emma Starko (43:06). The event would not be possible without terrific support from the community of Tsawwassen — from the staff at the
