Residents got a chance this week to have their say on the much talked about rezoning proposal for the final phase of Marina Garden Estates. An overflow crowd of supporters and opponents packed a public hearing Tuesday at municipal hall to offer their views on the Ladner housing project. Most of those early on the speakers list, including many younger people in their 20s and 30s, spoke in favour of the application, but by the end of the evening Delta council also heard from several opponents. The list of speakers was only halfway completed by the end of the evening, prompting the hearing to go into a second night Wednesday. By the end of that second session, it was clear the application remains a divisive one for the community. The majority of speakers on Tuesday spoke in favour, but that was clearly the opposite the following night. Captain’s Cove Marina and Polygon Homes want to construct 674 housing units on the remaining undeveloped parcel, a proposal that calls for townhouses as well as a 94-unit, four-storey condo building. The originally approved zoning allows for stacked townhomes as well as waterlot homes and a hotel. Speaking in favour at Tuesday’s

hearing, Shirley Jaye accused the Marina Gardens homeowners association of resorting to fear mongering, making those living in the subdivision who support the project too intimated to speak. It was an accusation echoed by ML Burke, a resident of the South Point neighbourhood of Marina Gardens, who called the opponents relentless. Burke noted there are many positives the project would bring to Ladner. “The good news is our lives will be changing, I believe for the better, and it will benefit the community overall. Townhomes and condos will help young families starting out and seniors wanting to right-size, which is the new term for downsize,” she said.

Farms to sprout at local schools

District partners with innovative urban farmer to launch first-of-its-kind program in Delta this September BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

The Delta school district is partnering with an innovative urban farming business to launch a first-of-itskind agricultural program in B.C. Beginning this September, the district will begin farming some of its underutilized properties to grow an array of artisan quality fruit and vegetables, using some of the products in school cafeterias, while donating others to the food bank. Students will be directly involved, having a hands-on role in the urban farming program. The district consulted with Kwantlen Polytechnic University to help shape the classroom component, but when it comes to the growing, the district has teamed up with SOLEFood Street Farms, co-founded by farmer, author and advocate Michael Ableman. “Delta is already doing great work and if we can add to that, enhance it, and maybe even have a SOLEFood component as part of it, it would be incredibly powerful as an

educational tool to have something on a farm production scale for students,” said Ableman. “Not that we’re trying to turn students into farmers necessarily, but more because we believe everyone at some point in their lives should be exposed to how food comes to them,

GARDEN from page 1 “South Delta needs higher density housing, which can also translate to more affordable housing,” Burke added. Kay Dennison, who along with Burke is a member of the Delta Seniors Community Planning Team, agreed, noting the need for housing to accommodate seniors is increasing. “Choices are needed for seniors when it comes to housing, and their needs are as varied as the rest of the community,” Dennison said. Several speakers also said Delta needs an injection of younger families and that the proposal offers that demographic a chance to stay in Delta. They also noted Polygon has made significant changes to alleviate concerns. Those who came to speak in opposition were entirely

from Marina Gardens, citing density, traffic and other concerns. Several said they were not opposed to development but didn’t like the higher density being pitched, while some noted they preferred duplexes and single-family houses to townhouses. Peter Mould reiterated concerns he recently conveyed in an interview with the Optimist that the developers are now asking for a huge change in order to create a windfall at the community’s expense. Calling the consultation process brutal, one resident noted a traffic study submitted to the municipality last year was conducted by an engineering consultant obtained by Polygon. He said Delta should obtain an independent analysis at Polygon’s expense.

how student appreciation of farming, as well as healthy eating, could be expanded, Schneider was intrigued with the urban farms run by SOLEFood, including one behind the Astoria Hotel in the Downtown Eastside and one in a large vacant lot beside B.C. Place. So Schneider, Turner and school board chair Laura Dixon visited Ableman’s farm this year to talk about a partnership opportunity, utilizing Ableman’s expertise and wealth of experience when it comes to forward-thinking farming. Established over a year ago, the SOLEFood farm by the stadium is an attentiongrabbing site with more than 3,000 planter boxes. The farm, which employs residents of the Downtown Eastside and sells to local restaurants, is an example that good food can be grown anywhere, including dense urban settings. Turner said at least 10 per cent of the district’s 350-plus acres aren’t being utilized, so there’s lots of potential opportunities for farming. The district is also exploring other partnership opportunities with the Corporation of Delta.

learn how it’s grown and distributed,” he told the Optimist at his unique urban farm next to B.C. Place Stadium. The idea had its origins last year when longtime Delta resident Mike Schneider, who is planning to set up a website promoting back yard gardening co-

ops, approached superintendent Dianne Turner about having a greater sustainable agriculture component in the Delta curriculum. From there came a garden project that saw students growing vegetables on 55 raised garden beds at 15 school mini-farms. The district notes that

soon 700 pickling cucumbers will be planted and will be cared for over the summer by senior secondary and Kwantlen students. The cucumbers will be harvested in mid-summer and stored for pickling in September as a part of Project Pickle. Saying he wanted to see

Bill Wheeler, a Woodward Landing resident, didn’t mince words on what he thought of Polygon, calling the company’s development changes and tactics unscrupulous. Also critical of the process, Malcolm Ashford said meaningful discussion and input are needed, but instead the planning department is pushing the application through without due diligence. Most of the same arguments for and against the development were conveyed at Wednesday’s session. “The prospective developer of the area has met with you at least five times and each time has chipped a little bit more bark off the tree. But has he done enough? As far as we’re concerned, definitely no. We need far more consultation with this organization... what you’re proposing here right now, if passed, would

have a devastating affect not only on Marina Gardens, but all of Ladner,” said Stan Lawson. Only a few who spoke in favour are homeowners at Marina Gardens, Lawson noted. Mayor Lois Jackson took exception Wednesday to a statement by one speaker who suggested council was simply following the planning department and that its mind had been made up. Located off Ferry Road, the first phases of Marina Gardens were completed over two decades ago. Over the years several residential phases and a golf course were added. The 87-hectare (217acre) site had originally been approved for 1,426 homes as well as a golf course, a 220-room hotel, a marina, a neighbourhood pub and limited commercial uses. To date, 619 housing units have been constructed.

Last week’s three-day commercial vehicle inspection blitz saw more than 40 per cent of those trucks inspected given an out of service rating. The Delta Police Department’s traffic section was joined by several other agencies June 18 to 20 for the seventh annual blitz. Teams were placed at several locations throughout the community, with thousands of trucks passing through the inspection points. At each site trucks were put through a preliminary visual inspection and any that looked like they could have problems were put through a second, more thorough inspection.

“The inspectors use their expertise to focus on vehicles that were not likely to pass an inspection,” said department spokesperson Sgt. Ciaran Feenan. The inspectors look at the truck’s mechanical components, including brakes, tires and load security. This year, 429 trucks received a secondary inspection. Of those, 184 (43 per cent) were given an out of service rating, 208 had some kind of violation and 37 passed. Inspectors also issued 374 tickets for various violations, impounded three vehicles, issued one indefinite licence suspension and found one prohibited driver. The out of service rate is up slightly over last year’s 39 per cent.

the corner of 47A Avenue and Delta Street, which also recently underwent a facelift, for the next several months. Ladner United Rev. Jim Short said he expects construction to take seven or eight months. The church office will relocate to a small house behind the current building. Ladner United Church has served the community for 120 years. It opened in 1893 as St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and served that congregation until 1925 when it merged with the Ladner Methodist Church and became Ladner United. The building has undergone some changes over the years. It was raised in the 1930s to allow for the construction of a basement. A hall was added to the south of the original building in 1938 and in the 1970s, a large, single-storey addition was constructed on the west side of the church. Despite the changes, the church has maintained its original character throughout the years, however, time and weather have taken

their toll. Some exterior work to repair the roof has already been completed and with the final approvals granted last Tuesday, construction on the rest of the building started last week. Work includes restoration and changes to the sanctuary, a community kitchen, new offices, refurbished meeting spaces and a designated space for the extreme weather shelter, which will include its own washroom and shower facilities. Short said the restoration of the 48th Avenue building has been in the works for several years. “People have worked very hard,” he said, adding that a core group of more than 20 people have been working on the project over the last 14 months. Short said the last service at Ladner United as it stands today begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday and will include a few special elements. Following Sunday’s service a procession will take some important items over to the church’s temporary home.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW When it comes to ports and the commodities they handle, it’s wise to never say never. We’re told Port Metro Vancouver doesn’t have any plans at the moment to ship Canadian crude oil or liquefied natural gas through the superport at Roberts Bank, and I see no reason not to take port officials at their word, but that doesn’t mean the situation couldn’t change at a moment’s notice. Ports are businesses — big businesses, in fact — that are influenced by an everchanging global economic situation, so adapting to what the world throws at them is absolutely imperative in order to survive. When the superport was under construction here back in the 1960s, various commodity scenarios were entertained and much land was expropriated to potentially support them. However, for the first quarter-century of the port’s existence on our shores, the only product it handled was coal. There was a feasibility study in the 1970s for a petroleum facility, which would have introduced liquid bulk at that time, but nothing ever came of it, leaving coal as the lone commodity. That all changed in the 1990s when the Deltaport container terminal opened, and it wasn’t long before container volumes ate up both remaining pods and necessitated construction of a third berth. There are now plans for Terminal 2, which would see a second three-berth container terminal built at Roberts Bank. From none to possibly six container berths in the second quarter-century for the Roberts Bank superport shows how commodity volumes are subject to change. You see it at the Fraser Surrey Docks too, where there’s currently a proposal to expand the product inventory in order to ship U.S. coal to the Far East. So does that mean oil and LNG are the next commodities to be handled at Roberts Bank? Not necessarily, but it does get you thinking when you add the port authority’s excursion to Norway last week with the Liberal government’s plan to hook the fortunes of this province to liquefied natural gas. We’re told when the superport was built, a stipulation at that time was that liquid bulk not be handled there, so the port would have to overcome that hurdle should it want to go down that road. Oil and LNG aren’t in what the port is calling the “near term,” but should the stars decide to align on that front, it’s not a stretch to think the restriction from more than 40 years ago will be lifted. We’ll be told, like so much happening in Delta, that it’s for the greater good.

Classes are done, but gardens continue to grow at schools MIKE SCHNEIDER

COMMUNITY COMMENT Well, it’s a wrap! If you have young children, summer holidays are upon us and whether you like them or not, there are 60-plus days for you to be in touch with your inner event planner. There is a lot to accomplish to ensure fond summer vacation memories. Although Delta schools are closed, it does not mean they will be quiet. The Delta school district has been busy building and planting in school neighbourhood farms on 15 district-owned properties. The past couple of weeks alone have seen 1,500 learners planting pickling cucumbers and other vegetables for the district’s “Project Pickle” initiative. High school students and a couple of university kids will be tending crops in 55 raised beds throughout Delta over the summer break. Some of these beds are producing inside courtyards but the majority are growing next to playgrounds and fields, using underutilized district-owned lands.

Some first crops of veggies have been harvested and each school has different plantings on the go. The one common veggie is the pickling cucumber, which has been planted at every school. The pickle, which will undoubtedly grace thousands of burgers and dogs this summer, is a complicated outcome. Planting, tending, harvesting, pickling, marketing, distributing, retailing and ultimately eating is a long journey that touches many aspects of the greater food economy. The school district’s motto of “Inspired Learning” resonates within Project Pickle and its “Hort in the Hood” unit based curriculum programs that teach our kids about the broad context of food. Watching and participating in their gardens in the morning, at recess, lunch, after school and in school time projects will frame agriculture as a critical component of the K-12 experience in Delta. A couple of weeks ago the Fraser Institute released its ranking of high schools in B.C. Delta had a couple of schools tied for 98th. The ranking system has always been in question and in a recent article in this paper, both superintendent Dianne Turner and school board chair Laura Dixon pointed out there are other aspects within daily school operations that are not taken in to account in the ranking

methodology. “In the Delta school district our vision is to be a leading district for innovative teaching and learner success,” noted Turner. Another fine example of this innovation would be the academy programs that are offered in the district. Delta is clearly a provincial leader when it comes to affording specialized learning environments. The Fraser Institute has not factored in programs like Project Pickle and the specialized learning academies in Delta. A few years ago the district hired a facilitator to work with staff and educators to develop a “Bold Vision.” In short, the district is framing itself as “a leading district for innovative teaching and learner success.” Sub themes of the Bold Vision are: Students are engaged through stimulating, relevant and inspiring educational experiences that ignite a lifelong passion for learning, innovative practices and individualized learning, and multiple pathways to learner success. I attended my daughter’s valedictory ceremony last Thursday and from my perspective there are certainly dozens of bright young men and women that are moving into society at large after being nurtured within the creative learning environment that is the Delta school district.

June 28, 2013 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

C ONSUMERS N UTRITION CENTER

Those outside of Tsawwassen can hold Southlands opinion Editor: Re: Concern yourself with Ladner issues, letter to the editor, June 26, 2013 Peter White, who apparently lives in what he seems to consider a gated community by the name of Tsawwassen, would be well advised to look around himself when he criticizes a letter writer who lives in Ladner for expressing her support for the proposed Century Group Southlands development. The last time I checked (and checking is necessary

from time to time), Ladner was part of Delta. So is, I am told, Tsawwassen, although there is reportedly a separatist faction resident in the sunny south that harbours different ideas — on a lot of fronts. If White really did understand wherefore he comments in his critique of Joyce Schmidt’s wellfounded expression of support for the Century Group’s remarkable initiative, he would be aware that the world extends beyond the end of your nose. He

needs to travel outside his imaginary gates. Thank you, Schmidt, for publicly expressing your support for a project that the community (Delta, actually; not Tsawwassen) would have to be on the verge of losing all of its marbles to refuse. Piffle to you, White, for your remarkably uninformed words. I live in North Delta, by the way. Turn right at 56th Street and Highway 17 and just keep goin’... Firth Bateman

Dance students kept limber A local kinesiology company is donating its time twice a week to help students at Deas Island Dance. Body Engineered: Functional Movement Training works with dancers at the Delta studio on an individual basis, providing assessments and working on specific concerns they have. “We’re trying to promote long-term health for the dancers,” said Robin Turner, who runs Body Engineered along with Michaela Colluney.

The married couple, which has two kids that go to Deas Island Dance, started helping dancers there last September. Dance student Julia Lowndes said working with Body Engineered has helped her a lot with a cut on her foot as well as becoming more flexible throughout her hips and hamstrings. “As with any athlete, flexibility is key for dancers to perform at their best and to keep injury free,”

said Deas Island Dance owner and director Lesley Benham, adding she’s pleased Body Engineered is helping dancers at the studio. “Our ballet intensive students receive seminars on injury prevention, Pilates and nutrition and now we can add fascial stretch therapy to that list.” Body Engineered has locations in Tsawwassen and Vancouver.

On call to lend hand “Are you the pastor that we asked the nurse to call to come and visit?” This often happens as the pastors of South Delta visit care homes, the hospital and the hospice. Many times we have been called to visit another, but whenever possible, we meet with whomever asks, whether Sikh, Hindu, Muslim, Jew or Christian. We are here to serve and to “draw near” to those in need. At times we can refer the person or family to other caregivers and spiritual leaders who will continue the caring, and many times we maintain the contact. It has no bearing whatsoever whether the person is a member of our church. We are simply available to respond to need, with the resources made available to us in Jesus Christ, The Good Shepherd.

Jesus “makes his rounds” and we are simply in attendance, listening, making contact, praying, anointing, sharing bread and wine, baptizing, blessing, reconciling. It is an amazing part of our ministry and a great privilege — that people open the doors of their lives and of their families, and invite us in. This happens with lay people all the time too and others who are “on call,” volunteering their professional services to the hospital, but sometimes we are a little more obvious, especially those who wear clerical collars. We are thankful for the communities of faith who support us so we can be a resource to the wider community and to fill “gaps” in caring for the whole person.

We Welcome You to Join Us!

Most men have relief in 3-5 days from dribbling, burning and rushing to the toilet. Must help or money refunded! Works in virtually every case. If you are #4a - NPN License considering surgery, try this tea first. Hundreds of delighted men testifying on our web site: !Had to get up every hour at night. Now I get up once a night.

IQ for students and older folks

! Imagine how frustrating it is for someone with a Ph.D. who has difficulties to concentrate and remembering something that happened yesterday. Now that I use your Super IQ Brain Function #36 I seem to be back to normal. I recommend it to anyone experiencing memory loss of any kind. Glenn A. Guidry Ph.D., 55, Nashville, TN ! Student was surprised with final exams results of 95%! I started taking Bell IQ Function #36 half a year ago when I had trouble remembering things in a course. Things changed drastically when I started to take these capsules. I could concentrate and excel better than ever before. Exams results were 95% correct! Theresa Williamson, 31, Toronto, ON ! 96 year old lady has some of #36 her mental life back! I bought the Bell Super IQ Brain Function #36 for my grandma who has dementia . Her thought s would wander in and out. Since she is taking the #36 we are delighted that she sings again and knows all the words. She acknowledges us again when we meet her. It is so nice to see her have some of her life back. I can’t thank you enough. Instead of sleeping pills she is taking the Bell Sleep & Relax Tea #21a and is not groggy anymore in the morning. Wendy Simpson, 52, Calgary, AB

SNORING?

SLEEP APNEA?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D.

Loose muscles

in the throat cause snoring, also interrupted breathing and gasping for air (sleep apnea), which brings on being tired all day, need for napping, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, irregular heart beat. Read below how Bell helps thousands, usually first night, inexpensively, with no side effects. Greatly improves quality of life and saves marriages. Survey says 48% snore and 75% are suffering if you include the silent suffering partners. To my surprise, after taking BellSound Sleep #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel #23 rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

Irving wins Reynolds scholarship The Delta Hospital Foundation announced that Kevin Irving, a Grade 12 student at South Delta Secondary, is the 2013 Robert T. Reynolds Memorial Scholarship recipient. Irving was awarded the annual scholarship during a ceremony at the foundation office earlier this month that was attended by Georgina Reynolds, wife of the late Robert T. Reynolds. One of Delta Hospital Centennial Society’s first chairman and a member of a Delta pioneer family,

Robert T. Reynolds made outstanding contributions to the community and dedicated much of his time and energy towards obtaining a hospital for Delta. His “call to arms” in 1976 for the residents of Delta to join the society along with his dedication and perseverance in the face of many obstacles were major factors in Delta Hospital becoming a reality. Irving’s dedication to his community exemplifies Reynolds’ perseverance for Delta. His commitment to local and provincial organi-

Soccer players Angela Tramontin, Andrea Fonseca and Nyssa Lessingham display the giant cheque for Right to Play.

Women’s teams unite to host party to benefit Right to Play

The Ladner United and Wildebeests women’s soccer teams co-hosted Party for Play, a fundraiser at Sharkey’s Seafood Bar and Grille in Ladner last month. The event raised $2,523.50 for the international charity Right to Play. Right to Play uses the power of sport to educate

and empower children and youth to overcome poverty, conflict and disease in disadvantaged communities as well as promoting learning, health and relationships. Money was raised by ticket sales and silent auction. The two teams would like to thank Sharkey’s and staff, Hotwax Entertainment

and DJ Larry, as well as all the local businesses and individuals that supported the event. The teams look forward to hosting Party for Play 2 next year. Anyone still interested in donating can do so at righttoplay.com or by contacting Nick or Elsie at 604-946-8898.

TWC CELEBRATES OUR MEN WHO LOVE PILATES

The TWC has been celebrating men’s health month and as this month winds down, I’d like to acknowledge our men who love Pilates.

Spa Time

July Specials

Renewal Hydro Facial 60min

Pilates, designed by a man for men, was developed by German born, Joseph Pilates.He developed his system for personal fitness, but later travelled to England in 1912 and worked with athletes. When the first world war broke out, he was interned in a prisoner of war camp where he taught his system to other men in the POW camp. When the war was over, the English were so impressed at how healthy all these POWs who practiced Joe’s system were that he was asked to work with injured soldiers in some of the English hospitals. It was at this time, he created the use of bed springs and leather straps to create exercises to rehabilitate the soldiers. He later moved back to Germany where the German army hired him to train their soldiers. In 1925, when he was requested to train SS troops, Joe decided to emigrate to the USA to patent the reformer machine. In 1926 he opened a studio in New York and the rest is American history.

Thank You! June 25th, 2013 Dear Residents and Business Owners of Ladner: Murphy Productions Inc. would like to take this opportunity to “Thank You” for your overwhelming support and patience especially during the filming of multiple locations and accommodating parking for the purpose of our filming last week in the community of Ladner.

Amanda and Patrick Tremblay try out the Community Chess Board in Rotary Square at Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall.

Community Chess Board returns to Rotary Square

The Community Chess Board has returned, the Business Improvement Association of Tsawwassen announced last week. The game board, which doubles as a checkers board, is back just outside Blenz Coffee at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall’s Rotary Square. It is available to

use daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather permitting. The project, supported by a $2,500 donation from the TOOBs, was introduced last summer. Students from South Delta Secondary’s Applied Skills program made the pieces under the direction of their teachers, Mr. Kroeker and Mr.

Kirkwood. The game will be put away at the end of September and will come out again in June 2014. “We believe this project has contributed to creating a social and entertaining space for our community,” said BIA events and communications assistant Matthew Norris.

We have all heard the saying location, location, location. That statement could not be any truer than how we see Ladner. The ability to showcase a variety of unique looks within your community is a very valuable asset for our local film industry. We are excited with the way Ladner comes across on film. Your beautiful town will help “Jinxed” become a success. We are truly grateful that we have had the opportunity to film in and show off your amazing community and look forward to coming back with another project in the future. So once again on behalf of all the cast and crew, Murphy Productions Inc. offers a very heartfelt thank you for your enormous help in the making of our TV Movie. Warm Regards,

Locations Department “Jinxed” Murphy Productions inc.

You helped raise over $177,000 for our Hospital’s Greatest Needs!

This week I answer questions from readers: Q: When my tulip leaves have turned yellow in June, can I take them up and keep them in the house. Could I put them in sand or sawdust and then replant them in the fall and add some sand under the bulb? A: Yes, tulips can be taken up when the leaves have died back and stored inside absolutely dry. I’d choose sand for storage, because it would repel moisture better than sawdust. Inside storage is the method old-time gardeners always used for tulips. Some sand under the bulb should help drainage in normal soil. But this may not succeed if you have

heavy clay because the holes can fill up with water in long, days of hard rain. Q: We have several blueberry bushes — all doing well except one. The white flowers look fine early on. Then half turn red and never develop. Some berries do develop. A: From your photo, it looks as if berries started to form but didn’t fill out properly. At least one looks as if it has turned black. I believe your blueberry may have mummy-berry. This is a very common fungal disease in B.C. due to our rainy weather. Mummyberry spores are spread by wind and rain. Have you noticed the centre of the flowers produces a little hard lump that falls off? These may be grey or black. The best way to deal with this is to gather up all these tiny “berries” from under the bush after you harvest your good berries. Garbage

these mummy-berries. Then mulch around this blueberry bush with about an inch and a half (4 cm) of composted bark mulch. This should seal in any spores that are dormant in the top layer of soil. These could be released next spring during windy, wet weather to infest your bush again. Q: The leaves on our tomato plant are dark green and curling up. What is our problem? A: Curling leaves on tomatoes are a sign of irregular watering. It’s not a dire problem, but could affect the size and quantity of your tomato harvest. Sometimes the curling leaf problem happens at the same time as split fruit. The dark green colour may show you’ve been using high-nitrogen fertilizer.

Listen closely for Westwood1s roar Now covered by houses, Coquitlam site was Canada8s first dedicated road course BY

BRENDAN MCALEER Optimist contributor

It’s a housing development now, a knot of quiet residential streets with names like Mulberry, Maplewood and Chickadee. Large, detached single-family homes sit cheek-by-jowl, their driveways cluttered with compact sedans and crossovers. Once though, this was a battlefield. Maybe you can hear the imaginary echoes as you putter down Paddock Drive, keeping an eye out for kids on bikes. Maybe your eyes are sharp enough to see the faded scar of Turn 3 through the tree line. All plowed up and bulldozed over, the maw of B.C.’s housing boom is unstoppably rapacious in its appetite for land. The devel-

opment marches right up the side of Eagle Ridge in Coquitlam, right up to the edge of the forest. The only racing now is done on bicycles, or in these suburban basements on gaming consoles or Hot Wheels tracks. But once upon a time, this was Canada’s racetrack: Westwood. Built in 1959, the Westwood circuit was carved into the mountain’s ridge beside the Coquitlam River by the Sports Car Club of B.C. Tired of shredding tires on the rough and rutted asphalt of local airfields, club members wanted a dedicated facility at which to indulge their need for speed. Circling the hat, they collectively raised enough funds to lease a parcel of land from the Crown and built a swooping, curving,

1.8-mile course amid the pines. From the air, it looked like a Valentine’s Day card drawn by a not-especiallytalented four-year-old. The twin humps of the steeplybanked carousel and valley corner curve formed the top of the skinny “heart” and then there were the twin straights, elongating out to a tight turn: Marshall’s Hairpin. Looking at a track-map, you’d think the wriggling S-curves of the road that ran past pit lane would be the more challenging of the two straights. You’d be wrong (though they were no picnic), the arrow-linear Mountain Straight had a considerable hummock right in the middle. Dubbed “Deer’s Leap,” this bump would occasionally fling unwary drivers off into

the weeds at high speed. This is what people did for fun in the days before Facebook. When it officially opened in July 1959, Westwood could lay claim to being the first dedicated road course in Canada. Over the next three decades it would host Formula Atlantic racing, Trans-Am and even NASCAR. Gilles Villeneuve would race here, as would Michael Andretti and Keke Rosenburg. Indy champions like Bobby Rahal and Danny Sullivan would also flog their machines around Many greats of the sport raced at Westwood, the course in anger, which opened in 1959.

much to the delight of spectators. In 1976, the Vintage Racing Car Club of B.C. joined the scene, showcasing historic racers on the Canadian tarmac. While you might characterize club members as curators, historians and caretakers, don’t think they took the racing lightly. While there are no official prizes or trophies, a racecar cannot be pussyfooted around a racecourse meekly. It champs at the bit. It squirms under the bridle and dances sideways impatiently. It gets under your skin.

All of the clubs are free to join and participants can win fantastic prizes. Preschoolers to adults are invited to prepare for takeoff with this year’s summer reading theme “Up, Up and Away.” Kids and preschoolers can take to the skies, voyage through space and follow authors to other worlds when they join the Kids Summer Reading Club or the Read-to-Me Reading Club. Participants will get a reading record, bookmark and weekly mix-and-match stickers. Children who complete their reading record will be eligible to receive a medal for their efforts. Teens in grades 7 to 12 can read their way to new heights when they join the Teen Summer Reading

Great Smartini at all three libraries

The Great Smartini will help launch the Fraser Valley Regional Library’s Summer Reading Club with a trio of performances next Wednesday, July 3. The award-winning magician and educator will make reading magical when he visits all three Delta library branches. The 45-minute show begins at 10:30 a.m. at the George Mackie Library, at 1 p.m. at the Tsawwassen Library and at 3:30 p.m. at the Ladner Pioneer Library. All ages are welcome. It will be the first of the five Summer Reading Club performers appearing at Delta libraries during July and August.

Club. For every seven days a teen reads, they become eligible to win one of several prizes, including Samsung Galaxy tablets and $100 Chapters gift cards. This year, adults are encouraged to do some uplifting reading. They will receive a reading record to track their reading and, best of all, the chance to win prizes. FVRL will be hosting fun free programs and contests all summer long. For more Summer Reading Club information, visit www.fvrl.ca or your closest library branch.

Mrs. Gillis’ Grade 6/7 class at Cliff Drive Elementary in Tsawwassen has been collecting pennies all year in support of children with life-threatening illnesses at Canuck Place. In addition, the class baked cookies and held a bake sale, raising a total of $507. 88. Students proudly presented their cheque to the children of Canuck Place at an assembly last week. The students would also like to thank Ms. Ayres, their Junior Achievement mentor, for helping them with their campaign to give back to their community.

The Ladner Pioneers annual alumni game last Saturday featured some outstanding past talent that has made the club a powerhouse in the Western Senior Lacrosse Association for nearly three decades. Among the players to suit up was Tim Winter (far right) who wrapped his long and successful career last season.

National team comes with a cost for Kanerva Tsawwassen field hockey player launches fundraising campaign to help Canada get to Junior World Cup BY

MARK BOOTH

mbooth@delta-optimist.com

Being recognized as one of Canada’s top up-and-coming field hockey players requires more than just slick stick skills these days. South Delta secondary graduate Andrew Kanerva is training six times a week as a member of both the junior and senior national teams. He does this while living on his own in Tsawwassen and holding down a summer job with a catering company. He returns to university in September at UBC’s School of Kinesiology. That is an immense load and responsibility for any 18-year-old but the aftermath of funding cuts to Field Hockey Canada’s national team men’s programs means Kanerva has to do even more. The athlete levy has been set at $1,500 per player to help cover program costs including Canada participating at the World Junior Cup in December in New Dehli. The shortage of funds has already

resulted in the juniors taking a different approach to their preparations with no traveling for international friendlies or tournaments leading up to the trip to India. “Apparently about $900,000 was cut in funding,” explained Kanerva who is one of Canada’s youngest players in the senior national training pool and made his debut with

the junior team three years ago. “We will be playing local teams and in club tournaments to try and stay sharp.” Like his teammates, Kanerva has launched his own fundraising campaign to reach the goal. He has done this through the Chimp Canadian charity website and now has his own personal page up and

running https://chimp.net/groups/ andrew-kanerva-s-junior-nationalsupport. Donations come with an instant tax recipient. “The senior squad has been doing fundraising for quite some time now and they are currently using the same online site,” added Kanerva. “We have only just started to fundraise and we are just coming up with event ideas now.” Short corners... Kanerva isn’t the only player from Tsawwassen headed to the Junior World Cup. Sara McManus has been named to the women’s team which will be competing in Monchengladbach, Germany from July 27 to Aug. 4. The team contains no fewer then 12 players that have already gained senior caps of which 10 are currently touring with the Canadian senior team in Ireland, including McManus. She scored off a penalty corner in Canada’s 3-2 win to open the series last Saturday. Ireland took game two and the teams played to a 4-4 draw on Wednesday.

Your Voice of Business for Delta

The world is knocking on the doors of Delta businesses. The opportunities that lie before us are significant. As we heard throughout the recent provincial election campaign, a strong economy helps to promote and pay for healthy social programs and thereby builds community. Successful businesses are the backbone of a strong economy and Delta Chamber of Commerce is committed to supporting and promoting sound business practices to achieve positive economic results. We need to speak up about high or outdated taxes and regulations which put such a burden on small and medium sized businesses. We also need to support those businesses by calling for more opportunities to help them thrive. Deltaport is one significant economic driver for Delta businesses. It is a huge opportunity. South Fraser Perimeter Road is another. The relationships of arts and Federal funds for interns B.C. businesses looking to hire post-secondary graduate interns may qualify for federal subsidies up to 50% of wages over 6½ months. The federal government’s High Demand Youth Internship Program supports employers while assisting new grads in obtaining transferable skills. Check the Delta Chamber website for more at: http://www.deltachamber. ca/2013/05/09/federal-funds-for-interns Transit Access to Industrial Parks Access of workers to industrial parks by transit is a significant concern of both employees and employers at businesses in the Tilbury and Annacis Island industrial parks of Delta. For some workers a one way trip, even within Delta as well as from communities to the east, can take one to two hours. Not only is that a major burden on workers, companies in those areas suffer the ongoing challenge of hiring and retaining workers. Delta Chamber and Richmond Chamber are working towards a business case for a private sector

not-for-profits and business are important and need to be cultivated. The development of Tsawwassen First Nation will have a positive impact on all of us. From the very roots of the Delta Chamber, agriculture needs our support because it is a vital industry surrounded and squeezed by ongoing development.

The Chamber Movement in a broader context is about promoting successful ‘trade’ and ‘commerce’. As your local Chamber of Commerce we have adopted a vision of ‘strengthening commerce and industry’ in our community because it matters to the economic and social well being of Delta. Recently we adopted a new vision for the Delta Chamber: “Strengthening commerce and industry because Delta matters.” Orville A. Nickel Chair Delta Chamber of Commerce solution to complement the existing public transit services. Crime & Safety in Industrial Parks Businesses in the Tilbury and Annacis Island industrial parks have been working with the Delta Chamber of Commerce and Delta Police to collborate on ways to reduce theft and other crime, and the safe operation of commercial vehicles. Theft of metal, commercial trailers, fuel, contents of shipping containers are among the crimes which add up to a major cost of doing business for some. Based on general meetings with industrial park businesses, a steering committee of business representatives has completed research and is now working towards a system to recommend to the business community in those centres. Proposed literacy strategy could offset labour shortages Job skills issue are the number one issue facing businesses in BC and Canada. That’s why the BC

WEBB, Jack Philip Norman

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jack Philip Norman Webb, 85, on Tuesday, June 18th, after a short battle with cancer. Jack was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1928. He joined the navy at the young age of 19 and was stationed on Canada’s east coast where he met his wife and began his family. Leaving the navy after 25 years, he went back to school for computer programming and begun his civilian duties for Health and Welfare Canada in Ottawa until his retirement in 1989. Jack moved out west in 2005 and was a very social and active man who right up to the end enjoyed curling, lawn bowling, swimming, hanging out at the Legion and walking his favorite grand-doggie Maggie. Jack could always be heard saying “Keep Smiling” … Jack is survived by his children Jack Webb Jr., Janice Humenny, Patricia Curle, and; his grandchildren Adam Robertson, Ryan Robertson, and Kailyn Humenny; and predeceased by his daughter Kathie Robertson. He will also be missed by Katherine Webb, Ross Lodge and the O’Reilly family in Ottawa. To the entire staff at the Irene Thomas Hospice in Ladner, we thank you for filling his last days with great care and compassion. You were all amazing, and he was grateful for your kindness. The Celebration of Jacks life will be held on: Saturday, August 10th at 2:00 pm at the Ladner Legion (upstairs) 4896 Delta Street, Delta, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Irene Thomas Hospice in Ladner would be greatly appreciated.
