although the service was maintained for special needs students. A further $200,000 cut this year won’t eliminate service for those students but it will mean fewer buses and longer rides to school. The district is also looking for increased revenue from its International Student Program to help balance the books.

The Delta school district is facing another round of cuts despite a projected increase in enrollment. The district was scheduled to publicly release today the proposed 2014/15 operating budget, which projects a $3.28 million shortfall.

Metro Vancouver has set a date for a public hearing on the Southlands development proposal. The hearing will be held on Thursday, May 1 at the regional district’s offices in Burnaby at 11 a.m. If the hearing needs to reconvene, it will do so on Friday, May 2 at 1 p.m. Delta is applying to amend the Regional Growth Strategy to allow Century Group’s proposed housing development on the

214-hectare (537-acre) Tsawwassen site. The Metro board recently gave preliminary approval to the application with only director Harold Steves opposed. Metro must decide whether to alter the regional urban containment boundary, and any change in designation would require a two-thirds weighted vote by the board. Century Group is proposing to build 950 housing units on 20 per cent of the Southlands. The remaining 80 per cent would be given to Delta, much of it for

farming. The proposal, which went through a five-day municipal public hearing last fall before getting conditional approval from Delta council, will likely draw a large crowd at the regional hearing. “While I’m disappointed at the decision to proceed to a public hearing, it is clear from the Metro staff report that this application does not conform to the recently created Regional Growth Strategy planning principles,” said Dana Maslovat, one of the organizers of

Southlands the Facts. “If these principles are used to judge the merit of the application, Metro will have no choice but to reject the development proposal.” The proposal is expected to draw many supporters as well. “It was ultimately this grander vision of a neighbourhood that included a community farm that captured the imagination of those who took the time to participate and shape the Southlands plan,” stated Century Group president Sean Hodgins.

According to Century Group, some of the land will likely be farmed by existing Delta farmers. The fact that 172 hectares (430 acres) are contiguous allows for maximum future flexibility in apportioning lands for various farm sizes, the company notes, adding the agricultural activity that takes place on the land could also be communitybased farming. Opponents say there should be no trade-offs to allow housing on farmland. Metro Vancouver’s offices are at 4330 Kingsway.

Shelter once again inundated with kittens SANDOR GYARMATI

They may be really cute but there’s way too many of them. Kitten season has started and the Delta Community Animal Shelter is being inundated with little felines as it is every spring. Noting 15 kittens have already been brought to the shelter, manager Sarah Jones said “intact cats” breed in spring and summer, so one female cat could reproduce both seasons, adding to the overpopulation problem. That’s why it’s important, she said, to spay or neuter your pet, even if it’s supposedly only a house cat that’s not normally allowed to roam outdoors. “Most people don’t intend to breed their cats, but they don’t have their cats spayed or neutered. Because cats can be so persistent when they’re in heat,

we want people to realize if your animal is over six months of age and not spayed or neutered, they’re reproducing,” she said. Jones said a story often heard is that a cat had escaped only one time, but that’s all it takes. “We want to remind people to please spay and neuter because if they do not, they do require a breeding permit, that’s according to the bylaw,” she said. Jones said spaying and neutering also reduces the risk of fights and disease. She said the shelter would like residents to call if they see feral cats in their neighbourhood. The shelter’s Trap, Sterilize and Release program will humanely trap the cats, spay or neuter, tag, vaccinate and then make them available for adoption. Adult cats that are not tame are released back into the area they were living or placed in barns as mousers

New municipal website called a virtual facility BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Delta launched its new website this week. “We are excited to offer not just a new website, but a new online facility that complements Delta’s existing facilities, programs and services, and will continue to serve as a vital resource and communication tool,” said Mayor Lois Jackson. Touted as a virtual facility that emphasizes Delta’s brand, focuses on the user

experience and includes enhanced search functions, the new site cost the municipality $161,474, coming in $48,000 under budget. According to the municipality, it makes it one of the lowest cost projects for a municipal website in the Lower Mainland. The new site features an intuitive design and practical search tools. It has also been designed with mobile users in mind. Key search tools include: • Activity search: mak-

ing it simpler and easier to find parks, recreation and culture programs and dropin activities, and register online through DeltaReg. • Parks and amenity search: provides a tool to locate parks and amenities according to your needs. • Recycling directory: takes the guesswork out of the garbage and recycling routine by allowing users to search where a specific item should be placed. The site can be found at www.delta.ca.

Stabbing suspect ordered to stand trial BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

The teen charged in last year’s fatal Tsawwassen First Nation stabbing has been ordered to stand trial. The boy, who was 17 at the time and cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, stands charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder after an alleged attack

that left one teen dead and another injured. He was in court last week for a preliminary hearing, which concluded on Monday with the judge ordering that he stand trial in B.C. Supreme Court. The teen will appear in New Westminster Supreme Court next month to set a date for trial. Police were called to a property on Tsawwassen

Drive at around 10 p.m. on Feb. 15, 2013. Upon arrival, officers discovered two teenage girls lying on the ground suffering from stab wounds. The 16-year-old victim succumbed to her injuries. The suspect was taken into custody the next morning. The accused and the victims were known to each other.

Lighting system latest in improvements at airport BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

A new advanced lighting system has been installed on one of the runways at Boundary Bay Airport, the latest in an ongoing series of improvement projects. Alpha Aviation, the operator of the municipallyowned airport, unveiled the $300,000 Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) system on Runway 07 Tuesday, a project that includes electrical upgrades and a new airfield lighting control system for the control tower, all completed on time and under budget. The PAPI system uses a series of red and white lights to guide a pilot while on approach to the runway and indicates whether he or she is high or low on the glide path. PAPI systems are common at most high traffic airports. “I am pleased to see ongoing investment in Boundary Bay Airport, which has transformed into a world class airport over the last several years as a result of our partnership with Alpha Aviation and their dedication to investment in new infrastructure,” said Mayor Lois Jackson.

“These upgrades reinforce Boundary Bay Airport as a vital transportation hub for air traffic in the Greater Vancouver region.” Also on hand for the unveiling were Fred Kaiser, chairman and CEO of the Alpha Group, and Coun. Robert Campbell, chair of Delta’s Boundary Bay Airport Advisory Committee. According to Delta, the PAPI investment continues the vision to create a firstclass airport with surrounding industrial development. In 2003, the assessed value of all properties at the airport totaled $5.4 million, generating $143,000 in taxes. The 2014 assessment is over $84 million, generating in excess of $1.5 million in taxes annually. According to Alpha Aviation, with recent capital investments and expansion, Boundary Bay Airport is now focusing on growth in corporate aircraft, smaller regional carriers and developing as a major aviation industrial centre. Last month, Island Express Air became the first passenger air service at the airport, offering flights twice daily to Victoria. Charter service will also be

provided. Alpha is also looking at other upgrades to infrastructure. In a recent presentation to the airport advisory committee, new airport manager Tim Bain outlined a few projects, including a major repair and surfacing of the aprons. Delta and Alpha are hosting an open house on Tuesday, April 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the terminal building, 7800 Alpha Way.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW They took a leap of faith at Ladner United Church and it’s paid off in a big way. Such leaps aren’t necessarily out of the ordinary for houses of worship, but the relationship between the church and a local developer on a major renovation project is as heartwarming as it is unique. With a grand opening set for later this month, I took a tour of the renovated church earlier this week courtesy of Rev. Jim Short and project manager Steve Knoblauch, president of Ram Construction. What Knoblauch and the entire team have done to transform an 1893 building, one that had been added to multiple times over the years, is truly impressive. They have preserved and enhanced the heritage characteristics while at the same time merging them with new millennium needs and technology. It’s most definitely a facility for the entire community, complete with a hall and three multi-purpose rooms available to a variety of groups. But there’s more to this story than just the finished product. The congregation’s desire to renovate the building, which originally opened as St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church before becoming Ladner United in 1925, dates back a decade or so, but it wasn’t until Knoblauch entered the picture more recently it all began to come together. With property behind, the church had an asset to leverage in terms of its renovation goals, but discussions with several developers didn’t go anywhere because they tended to be more interested in the land than the future of the building. Knoblauch was different, so much so that Short calls him “our biggest benefactor.” Not only did he put the well being of the historic building first, preserving and enhancing portions of it that might well have been torn down, but he entered into a rather unusual agreement. He will eventually construct 15 townhouses on the land out back, but unlike other developers that wanted to build first, Knoblauch hasn’t seen a nickel in return yet. Mind you, he’s the same guy who bought the property at the corner of 47A Avenue and Delta Street, the site of the old Ladner Baptist Church building, a couple of years ago. Without any heritage protection, he could have knocked it down and put up nine townhouses, but took the less profitable route by preserving the historic structure and will build just three row houses. That same community-first approach has been taken at Ladner United and it’s paying off handsomely for everyone concerned.

Strike shines unflattering light on way in which port operates IAN ROBERTSON

COMMUNITY COMMENT The strike at Deltaport is over and the trucks and trains are rolling again. Imports are arriving and exports are leaving. I have two questions: 1. Why was there a strike? 2. Who were the legitimate parties to resolve it? My understanding of “why” is because of economics and the facts as set out by the truckers that rates were too low, some had fallen, and that combined with excessively long wait times, it was making it impossible to earn a living after paying for expenses. We are talking about an average take home of less than $30,000 per independent trucker. Who were the parties, or who should have been the parties, is more complex. Truckers are a mix of a union and independent operators, so there are two quite different classes of

“employees.” Who is the employer? Is it TSI, which holds the lease to move the containers? Is it Port Metro Vancouver, a federally regulated entity? If so, Canada and the federal minister of labour get to “blow the whistle” on disputes. If it’s not regulated, then over to B.C. minister of labour. Since B.C. was passing back-to-work legislation, it seems it’s provincial. However, the port is a federal undertaking, and while Port Metro Vancouver claims to be simply the landlord, the federal government seems to have the final say on what happens. Nonetheless, the federal minister of labour was absent. Instead we had a statement by Lisa Raitt, the minister of transport, to whom the port reports. In the middle of the dispute, she said the “truckers should go back to work.” That’s hardly neutral. This is same minister, when replying to our mayor, who said she did not interfere with the operations of the port. Add to this, the president of the port threatened to cancel truckers’ licences in the midst of the strike. No, don’t negotiate, just threaten! (That’s straight from Putin School of Governance, Crimea campus.)

The Optimist reserves the right to edit letters and the decision to publish is at the discretion of the editor or publisher. All letters must be signed, dated and include the writer’s phone number

So what is happening, who’s really in charge? If this is an essential service, then back-to-work legislation followed by an arbitrated settlement is the norm. Otherwise the parties are free to strike and lock out. This got complicated. We had labour ministers from Canada and B.C., the provincial legislature, Port Metro Vancouver, TSI, union and the truckers’ association all trying to negotiate with one another. Behind this lies a deal struck in 2005 that had been broken by the port. In the end, the settlement contained increased “wages,” fuel reimbursement and compensation for waiting time. Just around the corner is Vince Ready, veteran labour troubleshooter, with a report for May 30. Will that bring peace? I sure hope so. This strike didn’t need to happen. The autocratic attitude and arrogance of the port management was the cause, along with welching on the earlier 2005 deal, and it needs to be “taken out back.” The head of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce even weighed in, saying: “The model of how the port operates... needs to be re-examined.”

April 11, 2014 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

Existing radio towers are far removed from homes

Editor: Re: MP taking action on radio towers file, letter to the editor, April 4 Firstly, I was happy to hear the efforts MP KerryLynne Findlay is currently putting forth bringing this serious issue to the attention of her colleagues in the Conservative government. I trust her efforts will not stop with just “informing” her colleagues but continuing to engage on behalf of her constituents, not stopping until this tower proposal has been halted permanently. Regardless of jurisdiction or whose department this falls under, the Point Roberts location right on the border is the wrong

place for these towers. That is obvious. Do not stop until this wrong is righted. Secondly, I was very disappointed Findlay’s letter contained reference to 12 tower locations in Delta/ Richmond/Washington with the comment that her office has never received complaints about electronic interference. Last December I wrote to Findlay and included the call signs of the radio stations plus a map of the rough locations of these towers. I stated, “You will see that all of these radio stations are currently located in rural areas NOT immediately adjacent to highly built-up residential areas

such as the suburb of Tsawwassen. Even AM 690 is located further away in the tidal flats.” I also stated, “Your radio station reference therefore supports the position that radio towers are meant for rural installations and NOT suburban installations.” Unless I stand corrected, for Findlay to continue to imply these locations are similar to the proposal in Point Roberts and the proximity to the highly built-up suburb of Tsawwassen, and to promote that they are not causing any ill effects, appears to be misleading and is quite troubling. This inaccuracy needs to be corrected immediately. David Bowyer

Upgrade of Highway 10 through East Ladner is still not finished almost 10 months later

Editor: I am stunned beyond all belief. Last July my nine-yearold son and I left for a three-week driving tour of the United States. It took us from here to Montana, from there to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, and then on to Springfield, Missouri. Thereafter, we drove what is left of Route 66 back to Los Angeles. After a visit in Hollywood

and Disneyland where my daughter joined, we ventured north along the California and Oregon coasts until we returned to the wonders of South Delta. After nearly 8,500 kilometres, I was very impressed with American interstates and how they manage the summer construction season. Of course, we returned to Ladner to encounter the refurbishment of Highway 10 through East

Ladner. No problem, right? I was glad to see it being upgraded. But, really, why are we still dealing with it almost 10 months later? This is a total joke! I am tired of rattling across this stretch and will need new shocks soon. What the heck is going on? When is it going to be a real road? Totally unacceptable! Luke Fredeman

Owners urged to keep dogs off farmer’s field Editor: Re: Keep dogs on leash near newly seeded field, letter to the editor, March 21 A smart reader wrote regarding the concern of dog owners running their pets on the farmer’s field north of 17A Avenue in

Beach grove Road. On Monday, the farmer turned over the field in preparation for planting. I plead with dog owners, and all concerned witnesses, to ensure the farmer’s livelihood is respected and we all ensure that his crop of

organic produce is safe from pollution from animal feces. If you witness abuse of this private property by dogs and their handlers, please voice to them the error of their actions. G. Clenahan

Significant drop in vehicle crimes over last decade Delta has seen a 67 per cent decrease in vehicle thefts as well as a 66 per cent decline in vehicle break-ins BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

April is Auto Crime Enforcement Month in B.C. and ICBC announced last week that Delta has seen a significant drop in vehiclerelated crimes in the last decade. When the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) started chasing car thieves in 2003, 70 people a day reported a stolen vehicle to ICBC. In 2013, after a decade of IMPACT, only 17 people reported a stolen

vehicle on an average day in B.C. In Delta, there has been a 67 per cent decrease in vehicle thefts and a 66 per cent decline in vehicle break-ins during that time. “Over the past decade, IMPACT has become a model of how you deter and reduce thefts of and from vehicles — by being focused, strategic, adaptable and consistently driving home the message that if you steal any type of bait vehicle, you’re going to jail,” Attorney General Suzanne Anton said. “The

benefits of IMPACT to both road safety and people’s pocketbooks are clear and continue to grow.” The team is best known for introducing the Bait Car program in 2004, which has expanded in recent years in to target trailers and property. “Though we may be best known for our Bait Car program, it’s our enforcement team in the background who are the unsung heroes, ensuring our fleet can be quickly and easily deployed to address hot spots as they occur throughout B.C.,”

said Insp. Peter Jadis, head of IMPACT. “We typically see notable drops when we target specific areas.” Since the introduction of the property program last year, ICBC has reported a nine per cent decrease in vehicle thefts and a 17 per cent decline in break and enters. “ICBC invests in auto crime prevention, including the Bait Car program and IMPACT, because less crime benefits everyone and helps control claims costs and keep rates as low as possible,” said John

Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety. “Even though overall auto crime is decreasing across B.C., you still need to be vigilant and make sure your vehicle isn’t a target for thieves. Remove valuables and use an antitheft device if your vehicle doesn’t have an immobilizer.” This year, IMPACT is devoting more resources to targeted enforcement, including larger scale auto thefts, such as those running chop shops or doing vehicle cloning, with some

thieves stealing cars simply for the value in the metal. “A car can be reduced to $200 to $300 worth of recycled metal, and that’s something fairly new that we’re seeing,” Jadis said. “Ten years ago, it may have been more joy riding, or break and enters with stolen vehicles. The policing environment is always changing.”

Only one Delta public school cracked the top 100 in the Fraser Institute’s latest ranking of high schools. Released this week, the right wing think tank’s Report Card graded 293 secondary schools in B.C. Southpointe Academy, a Tsawwassen private school, was the highest school in Delta in 24th spot. Burnsview Secondary in North Delta was the highest ranked public school at 87th overall. Both South Delta public high schools, Delta Secondary in Ladner and South Delta Secondary in Tsawwassen, tied in 114th place. Delta schools didn’t fare well once again in the rankings despite continuing to exceed provincial averages in many categories, includ-

ing graduation rates. Only one Delta public school managed to crack the top 200 in the Fraser Institute’s recent Report Card ranking elementary schools. Southpointe Academy was again the top Delta school in that ranking, finishing 69th out of 982 schools. The top public elementary school was Tsawwassen’s Cliff Drive, which placed 199th. B.C. teachers have long dismissed the rankings as both flawed and misleading. As far as the Delta school district, it doesn’t consider the Fraser Institute rankings a true reflection of the system, school district spokesperson Deneka said following the release of the elementary school rankings. “In Delta, we have a strong commitment to ensuring students reach their full potential and this

Panda A little bit about Panda: Miss Panda was originally adopted from the Shelter by a sweet elderly woman. Sadly a few years later, her owner passed away and none of the woman’s family could keep Panda so she was surrendered back to the shelter. Panda is a beautiful, confident girl who appreciates the “less is more” type of attention from people, though she is happy to rub against your leg and hop onto your lap for some pets when the mood suits her. She prefers affection on her own terms, so would not do well living in a home with children. Panda must not go to a home with dogs, as she gets very upset and defensive around them. She would thrive in a quiet, indoor only, adult only home, where she can snooze by a sunny window during the day and then curl up on the sofa next to her people at night, to watch “Dancing with the Stars”.

The final of three public forums on the future of Paterson Park takes place tomorrow afternoon at the Kinsmen House.

V ”T 1 5

Forum to discuss Paterson’s future

The final Paterson Park public forum is set for Saturday. The Delta Seniors Planning Team launched a series of three meetings late last month aimed at exploring possible future uses for the former harness racetrack at the entrance to Ladner. There have been concerns around a shortage of both affordable rental and market properties available for young families and downsizing seniors in Delta, so the planning team has put together a vision for the future of the site. It envisions an inclusive community that includes many facets: a mix of owned and rental units, seniors housing, assisted

living and full residential care, adult and child day care, as well as co-housing units and a designated residential dementia care centre. The sessions, which are taking place at Kinsmen House (adjacent to the Ladner Pioneer Library), have already covered how to better determine education, socialization and recreation opportunities for all ages, as well as how both market and subsidized rental units or buildings can co-exist on the property. Saturday’s session will discuss how to develop housing for mixed incomes and ages if it were on leased land. The forum runs from 1 to 3 p.m.

‘Full of happiness’

Lara West’s whimsical artwork is showcased at moving sale BY

DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

S

outh Delta artist Lara West has a moving sale coming up next week with part proceeds going to the Union Gospel Mission. She is moving from Beach Grove to Ladner. “I’m going to have an actual studio instead of my kitchen,” West says with a laugh. She expects to have about 25 original paintings at the sale. Her work is colourful, whimsical and acrylic. “I call them whimsical. They’re abstracts but full of happiness, I like to think,” she says. West says 15 per cent of the proceeds from the sale will go to Union Gospel Mission, an urban relief organization based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. She says it seems like a group that is offering something very basic, food, in a caring way. West, who went through a bit of a tough time financially during the recent recession, but has turned things around now, says she thought it would be a good organization to support. The group’s website notes it offers services

including meals, outreach, emergency shelter, alcohol and drug recovery, employment and education, affordable housing, children and

family programs, and more. West has been painting for four years. “I love it. It’s a lot of fun. It’s always surprising, but a

nice surprise, when somebody wants to buy one.” The art sale is set for Saturday, April 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at West’s

home studio at 1437 Duncan Dr. in Beach Grove. The sale takes place rain or shine. Visit her website (heart-

art.ca) or Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Lara. Heart.Art) to have a look at a collection of West’s paintings.

This spring, the proud tradition continues as CFUW South Delta eagerly anticipates its major community outreach and bursary fundraising event of the year. On Thursday, April 24 at 7:30 p.m. at South Delta Secondary, the club presents for the first time in Delta the acclaimed

Pandora’s Vox women’s vocal ensemble. The West Vancouver group is directed by Gillian Hunt. Appearing with Pandora’s Vox will be 100 members of the award-winning South Delta Secondary choir, directed by Danielle Hamilton. The SDSS choir enjoyed a large medal haul at a competition in New York City last year. As a result of its strong performance, it was invited to perform at the WorldStrides Heritage Music Festival in Hollywood this month.

SDSS was the only Canadian school slated to attend the festival. The choir will also perform in Disneyland during its visit. The choir’s upcoming concert with Pandora’s Vox will culminate with the two massed choirs (120 singers) performing together. All proceeds from the concert will fund bursaries for young female students from South Delta Secondary and Delta Secondary, as well as for mature local women who are returning to post-secondary education.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for youth/children. Tickets are available at Black Bond Books in Ladner, Centre Stage Accessories in Tsawwassen’s Town Centre Mall or at the door. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Living Colour at Gallery 1710

Guild show includes copy of Vermeer’s Girl With A Pearl Earring BY

NOREEN M. FAIRWEATHER Optimist contributor

Here in the Lower Mainland spring arrives earlier than in the rest of Canada, and we are blessed with a wonderful multitude of colours as the season unfolds. Our trees and plants provide incredible shades of green, the sky colours from sunset red to greys and intense blue, and the waters of our lakes, rivers and the sea reflect all. This astonishing variety is vital to our lives, and yet its origin is equally amazing. Every colour we know is derived from red, blue and yellow, named the primary colours. Mixing these produces the secondary colours of green, orange and purple. Add black and white and the colours of the world are at your fingertips if you learn how to mix them. This is the challenge that has faced artists, entrepreneurs,

explorers, nations and humanity for millennia. Exaggeration? Not really. Thanks to our ever-increasing technical skills, we are able to delve further and further into the origins of man, and arguably some of the most amazing discoveries are cave paintings found in 1994 in southern France. These Paleolithic paintings were done more than 30,000 years ago and “signed” by the artists’ handprints. About 8,000 years ago still-active mines in northern Afghanistan were producing an extraordinarily beautiful semi-precious intense blue stone we know as lapis lazuli. This can be carved and polished as sculpture, or ground and mixed as paint, as happened when the rock reached Europe in the Middle Ages. The gorgeous, rare and very costly intense ultramarine blue produced was much in demand by Renaissance

artists, who mostly reserved its use for religious paintings. However, one of the

best-known paintings displaying exceptional use of ultramarine is Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With A Pearl

Earring, completed in 1665. The painting is usually in the Royal Picture Gallery, where South Delta Artists

Guild artist Coral Gurney studied it during her threeyear attendance at the American Academy of Art in Holland. Gurney’s near same-size copy of this painting is currently on display (not for sale) in the South Delta Artists Guild’s Living Colour show and sale running through April 27 at Gallery 1710. The show features original oils, watercolours, mixed media and collage on the walls as well as a new selection of work in the Shrink Wrap Bin, which contains matted and shrink wrapped prints ready to frame. Gallery 1710, which is adjacent to the South Delta Recreation Centre at 171056th St., is open to the public Thursday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about the show visit the guild’s website at www.southdeltaartistsguild.com.

laughter & yoga

Event slated for next week in Tsaw. An event is slated for next week in Tsawwassen aimed at raising funds while giving participants a good laugh. Susan Vanderwerff has teamed up with daughter Janelle Vanderwerff to present a laughter yoga class on Tuesday, April 15 at 7 p.m. in the gym at South Park Elementary. The long-time Tsawwassen family is putting on the event as a fundraiser for younger daughter Chelsea Vanderwerff, 23, a third-year nursing student. Chelsea is raising money to go to Namibia to complete her nursing practicum. While there she will volunteer in the pediatric ward of a hospital, helping children affected by HIV and AIDS. She leaves for Africa April 24. Chelsea has held other

fundraisers for her trip, but Susan and Janelle, who are both certified laughter yoga leaders, decided they wanted to help out with their own event.

“We’re excited to see a lot of familiar faces.”

Susan Vanderwerff

Laughter yoga is described as a series of movement and breathing exercises designed to stimulate laughter and cultivate an inner spirit of joy. It is a technique that invites laughter without using jokes or humour, and combines a blend of yoga-based deep breathing, gentle stretching, simulated laughter exercises, and playful games and activi-

ties. The Vanderwerff family is well known in the community, having been involved in many activities, including soccer, squash, music and volleyball. “Our experience in this community has been a lot of fun and we enjoy living in this community that we have found very compassionate and generous,” Susan said. “We’re excited to see a lot of familiar faces.” Admission to the laughter yoga session costs $20 for adults and $10 for students. Anyone interested in participating can register via email at jvanderwerff@ my.adler.ed. Chelsea Vanderwerff has also set up a fundraising page at www.gofundme. com/7bp62o.

Launched by Fraser Health, Vancouver Coastal Health and the UBC eHealth Strategy Office, the My Health My Community survey (https://www.myhealthmycommunity. org/) aims to understand how lifestyle, local environment, neighbourhood and daily interactions affect health over time. The information gathered through the survey can then be used by local governments and community agencies to shape future community programs and services. For example, information on busy roads, neighbourhood safety or nearby green spaces can help planners plot traffic patterns, parks or community facilities, and data on smoking and obesity patterns can aid health authorities in targeting disease prevention programs. Until Sunday, April 20, Fraser Health will be promoting a region-wide My Health My Community contest with prizes available to be won. When respondents enter promo code “MY HEALTH,” they will be entered to win prizes, including iPads, iPad Minis and gift certificates from Best Buy and London Drugs, valued up to $250. “To create the best picture of current community health and well-being across the Fraser Health region, we need about 25,000 residents to participate in the My Health My Community Survey,” said Dr. Victoria Lee, executive medical director, population and public health, for the Fraser Health Authority. “So far, 7,300 people have taken the survey. We hope this contest will get people excited about participating and providing their input for a healthier community.”

Tea has many benefits Hot tea may taste good and be soothing on a cool day, but there are also many medical benefits to this drink. Tea is an ancient beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries thanks to its healing benefits. Here are just some of the many ways sipping hot tea can be beneficial to you. • Decreased risk of heart disease: A study published in the journal Circulation indicated that drinking more than two cups of tea a day decreased the risk of death from a heart attack by 44 percent. Even if you aren’t having several cups a day, tea can provide marked improvement in cardiovascular health and reduction of fatal heart attacks. • Reduction in blood pressure: Drinking merely a half-cup of green or oolong tea may reduce blood pressure by up to 50 percent, say researchers. Because high blood pressure could contribute to stroke, one can surmise that drinking tea may have benefits in stroke reduction as well. • Antiseptic properties: People who rinse their mouth with tea or drink it frequently may benefit from a reduction in cavities or periodontal diseases. The bioflavonoids in tea have antiseptic and astringent properties. A tea gargle can help prevent bad breath and kill germs in the mouth that contribute to poor oral health, according to the Hibiki-an brand of green tea. Because many viruses, such as the flu and cold, are

airborne, drinking or gargling with tea may also help fight cold and flu. • Lowers cancer risk: The polyphenols in tea may be responsible for inhibiting factors that promote cancer growth in the body, according to some studies. In addition, the antioxidants in tea can help improve overall health. In one study, green tea was shown to inhibit bladder cancer cell growth in the laboratory. Some doctors surmise that drinking tea can fend off certain gastrointestinal cancers. • Neurological benefits: Some research suggests that tea is valuable in the fight against neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Many of the benefits of tea are produced through flavonoids — a natural class of antioxidants that are found in many natural plant-derived foods. According to medical experts, antioxidants remove free radicals from the body — molecules that form as side products of damage done to the body by pollution and the natural aging process. The instability of free radicals causes them to react negatively with cells in the body and DNA. This may result in malfunctions and mutations on a cellular level. These malfunctions or mutations can increase risk of heart disease and cancer.

How are you?” It seems like a very common and cordial exchange and is so easily offered without much thought. It occurs to me every once in a while, when I catch myself doing this, that by responding in such a way we may actually be quite dismissive of both the other person and of ourselves. When I travelled for four-anda-half years with a Christian theatre company called the Covenant Players, the founder and director, Charles M. Tanner, was fond of reminding us that whenever we add

the “but” in the middle of our sentence, we are actually eliminating anything we have said prior to that word. Therefore, “I’m well, but...” really means I’m not necessarily well. This is just a convenient method of not going into something deeper that we don’t have time for in the moment. The real question it raises in a full and busy life is: Has our busyness taken priority over our relationships and, if so, is this by choice or by lack of thoughtfulness? Just a few thoughts for us to mull over and hopefully make for healthy and wise interactions. Remember: “In everything, treat others as you would want them to treat you, for this fulfills the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:12

Council of Canadians activist to discuss northern B.C. pipelines

Frequent BATHROOM TRIPS?

The Delta/Richmond chapter of the Council of Canadians is holding a special Mother Earth Day Event on Indigenous Resistance next week. It’s set for the Ladner Pioneer Library on Wednesday, April 16 at 7 p.m. Chapter activist Bob Ages journeyed to northern B.C. in February to the Unist’ot’en Resistance Camp, which is located on the route of pipelines. He describes his time there as how he “connected the dots between climate change, fossil fuel pipe

dreams and First Nations sovereignty on unceded territories.” There will be a slide show presentation showing the camp and what is being protected and defended. Joining Ages in a discussion will be Bertha Williams from the Tsawwassen First Nation and Rhiannon Bennett from the Musqueam First Nation. All are welcome to hear the first hand account of Ages’ visit to this critical chokepoint in the planned “carbon corridor” to the coast and the plan to stop it.

A NEW YOU

HEALTH, COSMETICS AND IMPROVING YOUR WELL-BEING In Canada heart disease will claim an estimated 600,000 lives this year, making it the number one killer. But did you know that heart disease and oral health are linked? Studies have shown that people with moderate or advanced gum disease are more likely to have heart disease than those with healthy gums. Because the mouth is a pathway to the body, people who have chronic gum disease– called gingivitis in its early stages and periodontal disease in the late stages–are at a higher risk for heart attack. Both are caused by plaque buildup. Some researchers suggest bacteria from infected gums can dislodge, enter the bloodstream, attach to blood vessels and increase clot formation. Clots decrease blood flow to the heart, thereby causing an elevation in blood pressure and increasing the risk of a heart attack. More than 90 percent of all systemic diseases—including heart disease—have oral symptoms. Dentists can help patients with a history of heart disease by examining them for any signs of oral pain, infection or inflammation. Proper diagnosis and treatment of tooth and gum infections in some of these patients have led to a decrease in blood pressure medications and improved overall health. Although research has not definitively proven that treatment for one of these diseases will help control the other, we do know that regular dental checkups, professional cleanings and good oral hygiene practices can improve oral health and that good oral health contributes to good overall health. While regular dental exams and cleanings are necessary to remove bacteria, plaque and tartar and detect early signs of gum disease, you can play a major role in preventing gum disease by practicing the following:

Family and Cosmetic Dentistry Orthodontic and Invisalign Treatment TMJ Therapy and Sedation Dentistry Botox Cosmetic™

• brush for two to three minutes, twice a day, with fluoride toothpaste. • floss daily • use a mouth rinse to reduce plaque • eat a healthy diet and avoid smoking For more information, visit www.myfantasticsmile.com Dr. Jonathan Brown, DMD and Dr. W. Earle Nind DDS

Four teams remain in cup hunt

Two-time defending champion U17 Ladner Vipers a win away from returning to Coastal final BY

Four local teams still remain in the hunt as B.C. Soccer’s Coastal “B” Cup playdowns reach the semi-final stage this weekend. In the girls’ competition, the U17 Ladner Vipers find themselves in familiar territory. The two-time defending champions came through with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Central City Breakers Elite on Sunday night at Holly Park. The Vipers now travel east to face the Aldergrove Ambush on Sunday afternoon. A win would guarantee a Provincial “B” Cup berth where Ladner was edged in last year’s championship game. The Vipers have already captured the B.C. Coastal Girls Soccer League regular season and group one cup titles this campaign. The U16 Tsawwassen Blues are also continuing their traditional strong post-season play. The girls rolled to a 3-0 home field win over Maple Ridge’s West Coast Auto Group FC Outlaws, just 24 hours after blanking North Coquitlam 2-0. The victories set-up a showdown with archrival Chilliwack Attack this weekend in the Fraser Valley. The teams met last month in the league cup final with Attack coming through with a 2-1 win. The Blues have bowed out in the semi-finals the past two seasons but have won play-in games to advance to the provincial championships in July. Last year, they earned bronze. On the boys side, the U18 Tsawwassen Blues and U16 Ladner Celtic have continued their impressive seasons to reach the Coastal Cup final four. Both teams finished in first place in regular season play and captured the top group in District 5 League Cup play, while also prevailing in Delta District playdowns. The Blues have enjoyed home field advantage through Coastal Cup play and came through with a 2-0 win over North Coquitlam Santos last Saturday. They now will look to advance to the final against the Guildford Force this weekend. The Celtic are logging plenty of kilometres in their cup run. After opening with a 6-1 vic-

Ladner Vipers Claire Eccles makes a move on a CCB Elite opponent during Sunday’s Coastal “B” Cup quarterfinal game at Holly Park. The Vipers came through with a 1-0 win. tory at Chilliwack, the boys returned home to defeat PoCo City last weekend. They now travel to Duncan on Saturday to face Vancouver Island champions Cowichan Valley Spartans. The finals take place April 26-27 in Richmond.

Two other girls teams saw their fine seasons end with quarter-final losses. The U15 Tsawwassen Blues were trimmed 2-1 by the Vancouver Wolfpack, while the U14 Tsawwassen Blues fell 2-0 at Winskill Park to the Vancouver Thunder.

South Delta Sun Devils football standouts Aaron Parker (62) and Curtis Garlough (50) wrapped up their high school careers with impressive showings at the recent 2014 Senior Bowl. The week long camp featured many of the top Grade 12 players in the province and concluded with the Senior Bowl game which saw Parker and Garlough help Team Friesen top Team Kelly 24-6. Parker served as captain of the offensive line and this week the 6-foot-2, 270-pounder was named part of the Simon Fraser University Clan’s 2014 recruiting class. Garlough was selected as the most improved linebacker at the Senior Bowl. Both players helped the Sun Devils win the provincial 2A championship in 2012.

Jones selected for East West Bowl For the second straight year, a South Delta Sun Devil football alumni will be playing in the East West Bowl. UBC Thunderbirds linebacker Riley Jones has been selected to play in the 12th annual tilt, slated for May 10 at TD Stadium in Waterloo, ON. Last year, University of Western defensive lineman Dylan Ainsworth helped the West defeat the East by recording a pair of sacks and two more tackles. He is expected to be among the top picks in the upcoming CFL Draft. In just his second year at UBC, Jones recorded 18 tackles and assisted on 15 others in nine games. He will be joined at the

Senior Bowl by a pair of UBC teammates — running back Brandon Deschamps and defensive lineman Steve Mawa. In addition to the game itself, the weeklong event includes daily practices, the Under Armour Combine, a coaches clinic featuring presentations by CFL coaches and CIS mentors and the inaugural CIS 7-on-7 Passing Tournament. Two familiar faces — Laval’s Glen Constantin (East) and Calgary’s Blake Nill (West) — will serve as head coaches for the spring classic. The old foes, whose teams faced off in the Vanier Cup final last fall, rank 1-2 in East West Bowl appearances.
