The water will be turned back on and the summer fun will continue with the re-opening of a renovated Splashdown waterpark at the Tsawwassen First Nation. Executive Hotels & Resorts announced Wednesday its plans for the re-named Big Splash water slide park, which is set to open this summer. A 200-room boutique-style hotel is to be built adjacent to the park by 2019. “We are pleased to have

dential development plan, which includes a complete refurbishment of the waterpark, which is already underway, plus a new Executive Hotel. We will be open for business this summer and look forward to welcoming back all of the waterpark’s loyal guests, as well as thousands of new guests to experience the rejuvenated Big Splash waterpark experience.” Last September, the water was turned off and the park was locked up, bringing an end to 33 years of summer fun.

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that the George Massey Tunnel is one of the country’s worst traffic bottlenecks. A new report commissioned by the Canadian Automobile Association identified Canada’s 20 worst bottlenecks, four of which are in Greater Vancouver. The tunnel is at the bottom of the dubious list at No. 20, although drivers trying to make their way through Geoff Freer it during rush hour probably feel like it should be ranked higher. Three stretches of road in Vancouver also made the list. The good news for commuters when it comes to the tunnel is the province plans to replace the aging tube with a 10-lane bridge, a $3.5-billion project that involves a series of road improvements on both sides of the Fraser River. Construction is expected to start this year. Delta is wholeheartedly supporting the project, although the regional district and other Lower Mainland cities, including Richmond, are opposed. Project director Geoff Freer provided Delta council with an update this week, reiterating many of the selling points for replacing the bridge, including relieving the bottleneck.

HOW COULD YOU? – By Jim Willis

When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me your child, and despite a number of chewed shoes and a couple of murdered throw pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I was “bad,” you’d shake your finger at me and ask “How could you?” -- but then you’d relent and roll me over for a belly rub.

You gave me a good-bye pat on the head, avoided my eyes, and politely refused to take my collar and leash with you. You had a deadline to meet and now I have one, too. After you left, the two nice ladies said you probably knew about your upcoming move months ago and made no attempt to find me another good home. They shook their heads and asked “How could you?”

My housebreaking took a little longer than expected, because you were terribly busy, but we worked on that together. I remember those nights of nuzzling you in bed and listening to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that life could not be any more perfect. We went for long walks and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only got the cone because “ice cream is bad for dogs” you said), and I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.

They are as attentive to us here in the shelter as their busy schedules allow. They feed us, of course, but I lost my appetite days ago. At first, whenever anyone passed my pen, I rushed to the front, hoping it was you that you had changed your mind -- that this was all a bad dream... or I hoped it would at least be someone who cared, anyone who might save me.

Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on your career, and more time searching for a human mate. I waited for you patiently, comforted you through heartbreaks and disappointments, never chided you about bad decisions, and romped with glee at your homecomings, and when you fell in love. She, now your wife, is not a “dog person” -- still I welcomed her into our home, tried to show her affection, and obeyed her. I was happy because you were happy. Then the human babies came along and I shared your excitement. I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they smelled, and I wanted to mother them, too. Only she and you worried that I might hurt them, and I spent most of my time banished to another room, or to a dog crate. Oh, how I wanted to love them, but I became a “prisoner of love.” As they began to grow, I became their friend. They clung to my fur and pulled themselves up on wobbly legs, poked fingers in my eyes, investigated my ears, and gave me kisses on my nose. I loved everything about them and their touch -- because your touch was now so infrequent -- and I would’ve defended them with my life if need be. I would sneak into their beds and listen to their worries and secret dreams, and together we waited for the sound of your car in the driveway. There had been a time, when others asked you if you had a dog, that you produced a photo of me from your wallet and told them stories about me. These past few years, you just answered “yes” and changed the subject. I had gone from being “your dog” to “just a dog ,” and you resented every expenditure on my behalf. Now, you have a new career opportunity in another city, and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does not allow pets. You’ve made the right decision for your “family,” but there was a time when I was your only family I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness. You filled out the paperwork and said “I know you will find a good home for her.” They shrugged and gave you a pained look. They understand the realities facing a middle-aged dog, even one with “papers.” You had to pry your son’s fingers loose from my collar as he screamed “No, Daddy! Please don’t let them take my dog!” And I worried for him, and what lessons you had just taught him about friendship and loyalty, about love and responsibility, and about respect for all life.

When I realized I could not compete with the frolicking for attention of happy puppies, oblivious to their own fate, I retreated to a far corner and waited. I heard her footsteps as she came for me at the end of the day, and I padded along the aisle after her to a separate room. A blissfully quiet room. She placed me on the table and rubbed my ears, and told me not to worry. My heart pounded in anticipation of what was to come, but there was also a sense of relief. The prisoner of love had run out of days. As is my nature, I was more concerned about her. The burden which she bears weighs heavily on her, and I know that, the same way I knew your every mood. She gently placed a tourniquet around my foreleg as a tear ran down her cheek. I licked her hand in the same way I used to comfort you so many years ago. She expertly slid the hypodermic needle into my vein. As I felt the sting and the cool liquid coursing through my body, I lay down sleepily, looked into her kind eyes and murmured “How could you?” Perhaps because she understood my dog speak, she said “I’m so sorry.” She hugged me, and hurriedly explained it was her job to make sure I went to a better place, where I wouldn’t be ignored or abused or abandoned, or have to fend for myself -- a place of love and light so very different from this earthly place. And with my last bit of energy, I tried to convey to her with a thump of my tail that my “How could you?” was not directed at her . It was directed at you, My Beloved Master, I was thinking of you. I will think of you and wait for you forever. May everyone in your life continue to show you so much loyalty. A Note from the Author: If “How Could You?” brought tears to your eyes as you read it, as it did to mine as I wrote it, it is because it is the composite story of the millions of formerly “owned” pets who die each year in American & Canadian animal shelters. Please use this to help educate, on your websites, in newsletters, on animal shelter and vet office bulletin boards. Tell the public that the decision to add a pet to the family is an important one for life, that animals deserve our love and sensible care, that finding another appropriate home for your animal is your responsibility and any local humane society or animal welfare league can offer you good advice, and that all life is precious. Please do your part to stop the killing, and encourage all spay & neuter campaigns in order to prevent unwanted animals. Please pass this on to everyone, not to hurt them or make them sad, but so that it could save maybe, even one, unwanted pet. Remember...They love UNCONDITIONALLY.

On behalf of the people of South Delta, Michelle LeMoignan of Pets-N-Us presents a cheque to Kelly Austin of PB & Chi Dog Rescue for nearly $3800.00. PB & Chi Dog Rescue has saved hundreds of dogs from high kill shelters in the U.S. The amount was raised thru our annual pictures with Santa, and we thank all who attended and donated. Can we help save them all? Obviously not, but through our numerous functions during the year, we will continue to find forever homes for many. Saving one dog won’t save the world, but will change the world for that one dog. We are certainly blessed to live in a community that year after year support “those who really can’t help themselves”. Please consider adoption before buying.

Gucci

American Pit-bull Terrier, Grey Brindle, Soon to be a spayed female Adult, (Approximately 3 years old) Gucci was surrendered to us after giving birth to 15 puppies! When she came to us we noticed she had quite a sever rash on her skin and this was fixed by changing her to a hypo diet which she will have to continue for her entire life. She will be available for adoption as soon as she spayed. She is looking for a supportive owner who will help build her confidence. Gucci is very excitable around other dogs and proper introductions are a must to continue working on her dog-todog manners. She will have to be retested with dogs once she is spayed to determine her true compatibility with other dogs. Due to Gucci’s high prey drive, she is looking for a home without small animals or cats

Riding landscape shifting

MLA’s announcement leaves Liberal Ian Paton as lone candidate in Delta South SANDOR GYARMATI

s g y a r m a t i @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .c o m

MLA Vicki Huntington’s surprise announcement this week could shift the landscape back to something more familiar in Delta South. The two-term independent announced she wouldn’t be running in May’s provincial election, citing health issues. It’s a decision that could very well result in the Liberals regaining the traditionally right-of-centre riding, particularly given the fact that Liberal Ian Paton is the only declared candidate at this point. Prior to Huntington’s 2009 win, the Liberals had held the riding for 18 years.

Huntington said there’s no doubt Liberal chances just improved greatly, however, she said Delta South has shown it’s prepared to take a gamble voting for an independent. “I don’t think people will vote for one just because they’re an independent… Let’s be honest, the reason I was first elected is because people were angry and I was well known and trusted. I was a protest vote initially but I don’t think in the second election I was one. I think people enjoyed the level of honesty I can bring to the issues as an independent. We also worked really, really hard to prove we are capable of doing the job and doing it well.” She said Delta South,

with its myriad of issues, has shown it wants someone to speak freely. “When you look at the history of this riding, it’s said over and Ian Paton over again we support the person who stands up for us, who tells it like it is. That was (former MP) John Cummins and that was (former MP) Stan Wilbee and you can say that was also (former Liberal MLA) Fred Gingell. It is a riding that supports the truth and will support a maverick if they’re working on behalf of the riding. That’s what they want to see, true representation. They want their voice to be heard.”

It’s unknown at this point whether another independent will come forward, but that individual would likely need a profile in the community and also the same appeal as Huntington to both rightleaning and left-leaning voters. Commending Huntington for her dedication and passion for Delta South, Paton, whose supporters were already enthusiastic about his chances even before Huntington’s announcement, said he’s not taking anything for granted. Saying he’s going to continue door knocking and campaigning hard,

he noted he’s passionate about the same issues as Huntington and is ready to speak out. “I want to be able to come as an MLA and stand up in the house, or stand up in caucus, and speak on issues that are very dear to me, and Vicki Huntington as well, and want the party to listen,” Paton said. With less than four months to go, the NDP has yet to announce a candidate for the May 9 election. Meanwhile, the Greens didn’t field a candidate out of respect for Huntington but with news she’s out of the race, the party has already confirmed it will now have someone running in Delta South.

Splashdown’s closing created outcry across region

CONTINUED from Page 1 General manager Harold Frederiks, who was with Splashdown for more than 16 years, said that sad feeling when the park closed has been replaced with joy and excitement. “We were planning to shut this down and move on, but there was such an outcry of sadness

across social media and people all over the Lower Mainland were very sad that Splashdown would be no more. Executive stepped up, heard the outcry and started negotiations,” Frederiks said. He said Executive approached him in October about returning as the park’s general man-

ager. “With my experience they decided to bring me on as GM, which is pretty exciting,” Frederiks said. “We are the only outdoor waterpark in the Lower Mainland, so to have this waterpark get a major makeover and become a top attraction in the Lower Mainland is pretty exciting

stuff.” Renovations underway at Big Splash include work on the pools and slides as well as a clubhouse beer and wine sports bar, a Vegas-style cabana rental program, a VIP private viewing deck with DJ stand, a new café, an espresso and gelato bar, an enhanced sound system,

an enhanced sun bathing and picnic area, and a new park mascot called Beavy the Beaver. “We are full-steam ahead to be open this summer with all the new attractions,” Frederiks added. “The new slides are on track for 2018 because it takes time to get the slides fabricated.”

Just where one-armed bandits will end up in Delta is anyone’s guess. The B.C. Lottery Corporation announced a couple of months ago

the last meeting civic officials had with BCLC was in December when the lottery corporation “expressed concerns” about Delta’s preferred site, the Delta Town & Country Inn. They’ve had no discussions since on

potential alternative locations. Harvie said the hotel property at the junction of highways 17A and 99 was the only site Delta council felt was appropriate for a casino. “It’s in an entertain-

ment zone, it’s isolated and has good connections with the new bridge and it needs updating anyway because it’s an old location now,” he said. “We have not looked at any other location since making that decision.” Asked for an update, BCLC reiterated that it has concerns with the Delta Town & Country Inn site, although it didn’t indicate an outright rejection. “BCLC is committed to sharing information on our proposed plans and hearing about what’s important to communities and there will be a number of opportunities for the public to provide feedback,” BCLC stated. “Under the Gaming Control Act, the host local government must also seek and consider input from the community before making a final decision. Ultimately, the host community has the final say as to whether it will accept the casino proposal.” Last summer, the lottery corporation asked three

local governments south of the Fraser River — Delta, Tsawwassen First Nation and Surrey — if they were interested in hosting a new gaming facility. Surrey declined but both the Corporation of Delta and the TFN submitted expressions of interest. Delta ended up being chosen even though the municipality’s preferred location was not favoured by the lottery corporation. BCLC stated the site “is not a suitable location due to its distance from the identified market opportunity and its proximity to the River Rock Casino Resort.” The potential gambling facility, which would still have to go through municipal approvals, would be a relocation of Surrey’s Newton Community Gaming Centre. Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Ltd., the private-sector service provider in Newton, would own or lease the facility in Delta on BCLC’s behalf, and operate it on a day-today basis.

Province increases grant threshold to $1.6 million SANDOR GYARMATI

s g y a r m a t i @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .c o m

Delta homeowners who saw their assessments shoot over the threshold for the provincial homeowner grant got some good news this week. The province announced it’s increasing the threshold from $1.2 million to $1.6 million. That means most Delta homeowners who saw dramatic increases in assessed values won’t be missing out on the $570 grant. The grant for a primary residence was being phased out for properties worth more than $1.2 million and eliminated entirely when the property value reached just beyond $1.3 million. The red hot real estate market last year had pushed many homes above that threshold, which meant they would lose the grant unless the province increased the limit. Metro Vancouver, Delta Mayor Lois Jackson and Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington all called on Victoria to take action. Huntington told the Optimist this week she expected the province to

increase that threshold, especially with this being an election year. “People, especially seniors, are caught in their homes and through no fault of their own their assessments climbed rapidly like that. It should help a lot of them,” she said. In 2016, following another dramatic rise in assessments, the government increased the threshold from $1.1 million to $1.2 million. At the time, around 91 per cent of homeowners in the province qualified for the grant. The Ministry of Finance notes that low-income homeowners can apply for a low-income supplement, which replaces any reduction in the grant caused by having a property valued over the threshold. The low-income supplement is available to seniors, certain veterans or their surviving spouse and persons with disabilities. The province also notes the property tax deferment program provides lowinterest loans that allow qualifying homeowners to defer property taxes until they sell or transfer ownership of their home, or it becomes part of an estate.

Desire to shop local remains strong

Ladner and Tsawwassen businesses feel support from customers over holiday season IAN JACQUES

C o n t r i b u t i n g Wr i t e r

The first Christmas shopping season with the new mall in the mix is now in the books in South Delta, with several business owners reporting a solid bottom line. Despite the changing retail climate with the October opening of Tsawwassen Mills, businesses in Ladner and Tsawwassen contacted by the Optimist said they were encouraged with the holiday season. Marleen Flumerfelt, who owns both Toys & Tech and Unforgettable Gifts in Tsawwassen, said the toy store did a brisk business, while she was still looking at the books for the gift shop. “Customers commented that they enjoyed our space, the knowledge that we have and the desire to shop local,” she said. “You would be silly to not believe that the mall impacted local shopping. They have sheltered space, so the weather certainly played a factor in some

people choosing to shop at the new mall versus shopping here in Tsawwassen. A lot of the folks did make the conscious decision, however, to stay and shop in the local community.” Ruth Scowcroft of Albany Books said customer loyalty played a big factor in a very busy shopping season. “I feel like our loyal customers really supported us,” Scowcroft said. “I think customers come to us because of our customer service. I make sure we have lots of staff at Christmas. People like to have a personal shopper. They come in with a list and want to have someone to hand sell them everything.” And she also benefited from the mall with some spin-off business. “I know I personally served someone who was coming out to shop at the mall, but because the mall doesn’t have a bookstore, found us on the web and came and shopped here before going to the mall, so I feel like the mall brought in a little bit of

going outside of the community to shop because the weather is not very good.” He said there’s no question the retail climate is changing now the mall is open, but there are ways local businesses can remain viable. “As long as we are doing our job from the business side of it and we are not upsetting the customers by doing things they are not happy with, they will be here because they want to be here,” Matheson said. “Our customers are loyal

and they tell us all the time they want to shop local to support local.” In Ladner Village, South Delta Heels owner Carol Miles said weather did play a factor in their sales, but so did the previous eight months of construction throughout the village. “You have to look at the whole picture for the whole year and not just the Christmas season,” said Miles. “The retailers in Ladner Village have had a tough year with the road construction. I had heavy duty equipment literally on my doorstep for a good chunk of the year, so it was a miracle that anyone would go through that construction to shop at my store, but they did and I managed to survive.” She said overall the mall had minimal effect on business. “The Christmas season was good, but it can always be better,” she said. “My customers come to my business because I’m offering something that is not available at the mall. As retailers, we all have

to provide something unique. We have to provide quality products, and excellent customer service. The Corporation of Delta has spent a lot of money in this area, so now it’s up to the community to realize what a gem they have and come down here.” Urban Rack owner Kristine Irving said while other businesses might fear the mall, she’s not one of them. “The Christmas season was good. I think we had a bit of a less volume, but those that were shopping were motivated to shop local and buy local,” Irving said. “Shoppers told us that they checked out the mall, but came back in December because they wanted service, the time and care that we put in with our customers, the free gift-wrapping and the special touches. “What we noticed in December is that shoppers said we want you here and they continued to support, so I don’t have fears moving forward. We are here to stay — we are not going anywhere.”

Murphy’s Law

T

TED MURPHY

he phenomenon that is Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington was initially looked upon as a protest vote fueled by constituents upset over hospital cutbacks, high voltage power lines and other provincial government decisions. Somewhere along the line, however, it has become much more than that. Huntington, the first independent to be elected to the B.C. legislature in 60 years and the first ever to be re-elected, announced this week she won’t be seeking a third term in Victoria in May’s provincial election. What started from dissent has morphed into an independent style of representation that Delta South voters have embraced. Huntington’s two terms in office have provided a glimpse into what government would be like — should be like — if there were no party whips and politicians were able to speak their minds. In a polarized, two-party legislature (sorry Greens), Huntington has been a breath of fresh air, free to vote with her conscience and with her constituents’ interests in mind, not restricted by ideology or party discipline. She can support the government if she feels it’s appropriate or can take it to task should that be required. You might not always agree with her, but you could never question her sincerity or integrity. Her ability to connect with people from all stops on the political spectrum is unique and while most candidates get a significant percentage of their votes because of party affiliation, Huntington earned every one on her own. That’s an impressive feat considering she got almost as many as the Liberals and New Democrats combined in 2013. Her announcement this week has left many of her supporters feeling lost, wondering where they’ll find a political home now after having been converted to independence. Huntington has demonstrated to them there’s a different way for politicians to operate and a different way to represent constituents. First and foremost, however, she has to look after her own health and I know everyone out there joins me in wishing her all the best on that front. Huntington has looked out for Delta residents for almost a quarter-century, but it’s time she does so for herself.

Due process missing as gov’t forges ahead with its bridge

I

love this community. That statement sums up my political leaning and agenda in the most concise manner I can offer. That is enough about me. The focus of my first column is a mega project that can arguably be considered the most detrimental waste of public funds since the BC NDP decided we need to reach Vancouver Island faster. People have said the $3.5-billion George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project is already decided and I am wasting my time; they might be right. However, what I ask is nothing more than the consideration, due process and reasonable expectations that anyone should ask of any government acting on their behalf. If that is too much to ask, we have all lost. Since the project first appeared (fully formed, it seemed) on the landscape, the government has not wavered in its plan to begin construction in 2017. That date was chosen without public consultation, without environmental review, without a costed business case and without any justification. In fact, we are still missing a lot of the information required to make an informed decision. To say the provincial government jumped the gun is an insult to understatements.

Community Comment NICHOLAS WONG

If a 10-lane, tolled bridge is such a good idea, why has the provincial government worked so hard to avoid public oversight? If a bridge were a good idea, why does Delta have the only mayor in the province who supports a bridge while the honest questions of community leaders like Ian Robertson, Vicki Huntington, Doug Massey, Harold Steves, Stephen Rees and Jim Wright go unanswered? I cannot square that circle and the entire project is rife with similar incongruities. The shroud surrounding the bridge points to a clear lack of accountability and $3.5 billion being spent on another unnecessary super project. Does traffic at the George Massey Tunnel require a solution? Absolutely. But the B.C. Liberals and the Gateway Council

had a solution in 2006 that would cost less than $800 million: another submerged tunnel. That makes a bridge more than four times more expensive. I love this community, but I fear the isolation that will come with a tolled bridge. It will eliminate South Delta’s traditional north-south travel corridor and cost families thousands of dollars per year. There are dozens of similarly disturbing concerns looming in the background of the slogan, “Canada Starts Here.” Dear Ministry of Transportation: “Here” is my home. If you want to spend more than $3.5 billion to dredge the river deeper so the port can get larger vessels up the Fraser, I want a clear statement of intent and I want to know why it is worth sacrificing the best place on Earth. The research has been done by dedicated members of our community. It is time for the provincial government and Delta Municipal Hall to listen to truth and reason. My sincerest thanks to you, Ted Murphy, Ian Robertson and everyone who helped make this possible. Born and raised in the greatest place on Earth, Nicholas Wong is a 26-year-old political junkie who often wonders what’s “Wong” in Delta.

Letters

Time to get rid of BC Assessment

Editor: Re: House values up significantly, Jan. 6 BC Assessment deputy assessor Brian Smith comments, “You can make the logical argument, ‘If I’m selling my property in Vancouver for $5 million, I could buy something in Surrey, or Richmond or whatever, for $2 million and I banked a lot of money. The money just

moves out.” How does this benefit those who don’t live in Vancouver and have no desire to move? It’s more like an illogical argument, to the point of being obtuse. If this is the mindset of those at the BC Assessment, then they obviously have little acquaintance with reality and Smith’s subsequent feeble analogy under-

scores this. Taxes might not increase but for those now “enjoying” an alleged increased value, the potential loss of the homeowner grant due to this increase will be felt, and for some it will be severe. Perhaps it is time to rid ourselves of this institution whose purpose appears to be inflating the value of homes at the expense of

those living in the homes with no discernible benefit accruing from this most recent assessment debacle other than to realtors via increased commissions and the government via increased taxes. That and the people selling their “$5 million dollar homes in Vancouver and buying a house in... whatever,” of course. Brian McKenna

Really hit distracted drivers

Editor: We should hit distracted drivers where it would really hurt. Instead of higher fines, which do not seem to be effective, why not confiscate their phones right there on the spot? The first time they are caught, they lose the phone for 48 hours, sec-

ond offence they lose it for a week and third time it gets destroyed right in front of them. These idiots are not learning anything by being given a ticket so why not try this and see what happens. If it saves just one life it would be worth it. Judy McDonald

$18 million truck facility waiting on ALC approval SANDOR GYARMATI

s g y a r m a t i @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .c o m

Construction could finally commence this year on a major project aimed at alleviating truck congestion as well as queuing and parking along Deltaport Way and the causeway. A joint initiative funded by Transport Canada, the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, a truck staging area is to be built on provincially-owned land near the intersec-

tion of Highway 17A and Deltaport Way. First announced a couple of years ago, the $18 million facility would be leased to the port. It would accommodate up to 140 trucks on the east side of Highway 17A and, to the west, a parking area for 40 early arrival trucks, a restroom and an inspection area for B.C. Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement. Only port-authorized trucks would be allowed to access the facility, which would have surveillance cameras monitored by port security.

of any agricultural land. “The other impact that bothers me a great deal, although the horse is already out of the pen, is that this will be a visual impact on our rural agricultural land where suddenly you’re driving along Highway 17 and looking at farmland to the left, and farmland to the right, and suddenly we’re going to be looking at an asphalt parking area with 140 possible container trucks parked in a rural area,” said Coun. Ian Paton. Paton said he doesn’t understand why a couple hundred acres of farmland within the Tsawwassen First Nation that’s now covered with sand, and no longer farmed, can’t be used for such projects.

Public is urged to be tested after raid of North Delta cosmetic surgery business IAN JACQUES

C o n t r i b u t i n g Wr i t e r

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. is urging the public to get tested for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV following a raid of an alleged illegal cosmetic surgery practice in a North Delta home. On Dec. 20, the college was granted an order by the B.C. Supreme Court to enter and search a home at 10519 Modesto Place. According to the college, it had reason to believe Zhuo (Sabrina) Li was operating a business

under the name of Sabrina Permanent Make-up Studio Inc., and providing cosmetic medical services, which she is not qualified or authorized to perform. The order further allowed the college to seize all items believed to be used by Li in the unlicensed practice of medicine, which included boxes and vials of injectable medication and receipts for financial transactions ranging from $300 to $5,000. “Based on the findings, the college believes it is highly probable that Ms. Li was performing cosmetic

surgery such as facial injections, eyelid lifts and facial implants, which are restricted activities that only qualified medical professionals are authorized to perform,” said Dr. Heidi Oetter, registrar and CEO of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. Fraser Health also conducted a public health risk assessment and based on its review, recommended to the college that a warning be issued to all individuals who received surgical services from Li at Sabrina Permanent Makeup Studio Inc.

A report by Delta staff notes several concerns, including traffic enforcement and policing for Delta as well as pressure on the province to use the facility as a regional overnight parking facility. Other concerns include the facility being designed to be “scalable” to accommodate port growth if Terminal 2 is approved, which means “significant implications” for adjacent agricultural lands.

Come worship with us Pastor: Mike Koot Epiphany The Lamb of God

There are three words from the Christmas narrative in scripture that I am contemplating into this New Year that we have entered. They are words that I believe are challenging to our instant gratification, instant response society. They may even be seen as counter-cultural as is the core of the Christian message. The words are: ponder, treasure and consider. “…Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2: 19) and “But after he (Joseph) had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him…” (Matthew 1: 20). These may seem like innocuous words that we can easily read over and

processes to ponder. Pondering means holding onto and systematically thinking through present circumstances while at the same time linking these events to past learning, knowledge and experience in order to set the conviction of her decisions on solid footings. Not only did she do this but she also treasured these things in her heart. She held them in the core of her being. Joseph had considered his situation and made up his mind, then an extraordinary event happened that transformed the events of his life as he was able to see them. How will we ponder, treasure and consider the events and decisions of our life this year?

Continuing with its community service commitments, for the fourth consecutive year the Tsawwassen Men’s Golf Club donated food and clothing hampers to six needy families in Ladner and Tsawwassen last month. Club president Bruce MacLean and executive members Tom Bearss, Ken Hart and Andrew Connaris delivered two boxes each to three elementary schools: Port Guichon

The principals at each school were delighted to receive the hampers and expressed their sincere thanks to the golf club, noting the families would be very appreciative of the gifts, especially at Christmas. MacLean replied that it is an honour and a privilege to be a small part in making these deserving families’ Christmas a little bit brighter.

homegrown film will premiere next weekend. Last Night in Suburbia was shot almost entirely in Ladner and Tsawwassen and the independent comedy uses South Delta as its setting. Written and directed by Ladner’s Richard Cox, filming began back in 2014. “It’s been a labour of love, for sure,” Cox says. The film follows a group of recent grads looking to have one last night of fun together before heading off on their separate ways. The hope is to land a distribution deal for the movie. “We want people to see it,” says Cox, giving kudos to the cast. “We want to make sure that people get a chance to see what these kids did in these starring roles. They really carried this movie and made it very funny, very heartfelt.” Producer and executive producer Sam Vincent notes they wanted to give

it’s a comedy. It wants to be a comedy. It’s never pretended to be anything else. You want to laugh.” Cox describes the film’s soundtrack as “phenom-

Tsawwassen’s Syrah Khan is one of the B.C. youth to be cast for the West Coast premiere of Concord Floral. The play, which is inspired by 14th century author Boccaccio’s The Decameron, will take place at three locations in the Lower Mainland with the first dates set for next week. It is set in a massive abandoned greenhouse where 10 teens must find refuge from a plague they’ve brought upon themselves and is cast exclusively with youth from B.C. “It’s really neat because it’s an ensemble piece so everyone is very close, and because of that it feels like I can get into the character without having to worry about much,” Khan says.

PHOTO BY ERIN BRUBACHER

SDSS student Syrah Khan is part of the West Coast premiere of Concord Floral, an award-winning drama that was first presented in Toronto in 2014. The Grade 11 student at South Delta Secondary says her role is very different from what she’s done in the past and that she’s

mostly been involved in musicals. She plays Forever Irene, a younger sister to one of the other characters.

Director Erin Brubacher says Khan is a team player who’s very dedicated to making the product and process good for the whole

group. Brubacher adds Khan’s role is a demanding one and requires a level of vulnerability, which is something that takes maturity. Concord Floral is written by Jordan Tannahill, directed by Brubacher and Cara Spooner while Erum Khan is the assistant director. The play will be staged Jan. 19 to 21 at 8 p.m. at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby, from Jan. 25 to 28 at 7 p.m. and Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. at the PuSh Festival at Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre in Vancouver and on Feb. 3 and 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Studio Theatre at the Surrey Arts Centre.

Easy weight loss tip helps combat December sins Adding more protein to your diet can work

Well on Your Way P.J. WREN

It’s that time of year again. That time when we have to repent for our dietary sins of December. I know. I’m with ya too. Even us trainers love cookies, Baileys and chocolate (and in that order too).

What counts as a high-protein food? Your best bets are chicken breast, turkey, seafood, dairy and eggs, pork tenderloin, bison and low fat beef. If weight loss is in your future, may I suggest one easy tip to help you out — protein. Or, more specifically, add more protein to your diet. Why? Research has found that a diet higher in protein helps fill us up faster, and for longer. This is good news when you want to lose weight. Nothing is more of a buzz kill for weight loss than a rumbling stomach. High-protein foods also boost our metabolism. You see, the moment

protein leaves your fork it starts working on burning the fat. High-protein foods take more work to digest, metabolize and use. This means you are burning more calories to process them. In addition, a diet higher in protein can reduce obsessive thoughts about food by 60 per cent. No more daydreaming of chips and dip. How much protein provides all these miracles? Experts recommend 20 to 30 grams with your main meals, and 10 to 15 grams with your snacks. What counts as a highprotein food? Your best bets are chicken breast, turkey, seafood, dairy and eggs, pork tenderloin, bison and low fat beef. For you vegetarians and vegans, you need to combine your plant-based protein in order to give you the nine amino acids found in the proteins listed above. Combine any of these four non-meat proteins for a complete protein: nuts and seeds, legumes (beans), grains and vegetables. Some examples are: almond butter and whole grain bread, tofu and any veggie, beans and rice, bean soup and rice crackers. Another easy way for carnivores and vegans alike to get their protein fix in is with protein powder. To help me out I recruited Tammy MacDonald, owner and operator of our very own Reflex Supplement store in Tsawwassen. Tammy and her husband Nick opened their

store last month. (Check out their Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/ ReflexTsawwassen, and join them for their open house on Jan 28.) Tammy, too, believes in protein for weight loss for her customers and she sent me this awesome high-protein banana bread recipe. High–Protein Banana Bread 1-1/4 cups of oats turned into oat flour (blend oats until you have a flour-like consistency) 3 tsp ground cinnamon ¾ cup protein powder (preferably plain, vanilla or banana) 1-3 packs of stevia (optional - adjust depending on your sweet tooth) ¼ c chopped walnuts (optional) 1-1/2 tsp baking soda 3 tsp vanilla extract 2 egg whites (vegan alternative: flax egg) ½ c unsweetened apple sauce 3 ripe medium bananas, mashed ¼ c unsweetened almond milk (or milk substitute) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients and pour into a loaf pan that’s been sprayed. Bake for 35- to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Or, pour into 12 sprayed muffin tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. TIP: use your coffee grinder to grind the oats. PJ Wren is a local personal trainer and writer who also owns and operates Delta’s newest fitness class destination, The Studio. Come say hi tomorrow between 1 and 4 p.m. during the open house.

Tsawwassen actor stars in The Fighting Season DAVE WILLIS

d w i l l i s @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .c o m

Tsawwassen actor Tom Pickett is reprising his role as a doctor in The Fighting Season, a “heavy” play that runs through next week in Vancouver. It looks at Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan through the eyes of three Canadian medical personnel. “These three experience this traumatic event together and it’s about how they deal with it after the fact, coming back home and adjusting to the new normal,” says Pickett. Other personnel include a field medic, played by Kyle Jespersen, and a nurse played by Siona Gareau-Brennan. The play really challenges how we look at war and makes you look at how veterans are regarded and what kind of support they get, he says. The production was

Delta Pacers’ Hanna Hansen goes up for two points in her junior girls basketball team’s win over Burnsview on Monday. The Pacers will take a 13-0 overall recond into a tournament in Langley this weekend.

A talented group of athletes has the Delta Pacers junior girls basketball team enjoying its best season in years. The Pacers will take a perfect 13-0 record into this weekend’s DW Poppy Tournament in Langley. That includes an impressive run in Delta League play and a victory at the Semiahmoo Tournament a week earlier. The road to the title featured victories against Elgin Park and Fleetwood Park, before knocking off Pitt Meadows in the championship game. Head coach Kerrie Trotman knows all too well the recent history of girls basketball at DSS. The teacher and dedicated volunteer also guided the last successful group to come through the Ladner school that included her daughter Megan. Those girls finished second at the 2010 Fraser Valley Junior Championships, qualified for three consecutive provincial tournaments and went on to play in the top tier of the Fraser Valley League at the senior level. It’s been a tough go since, especially trying to get traction in what is widely considered as the deepest zone in the province. “I don’t think we have seen some of those real top teams yet, like Brookswood and Riverside, but I’m hopeful of where we are going and super excited to be where we are halfway through the season,” said Trotman. “This is a good group of athletes with a very good work ethic too.

“I can’t say I have one best player because we have a solid starting five. I also can look down my bench and know I can give them a rest too.” The Pacers will attempt to win their first Delta League championship since 2010. Seaquam and Burnsview are considered their biggest threats come next month’s playoffs. The team’s tournament schedule also includes a trip to Kelowna for one of the several junior provincial qualifiers. This year’s B.C. showcase tourney has been expanded from 16 to 24 schools, yet Trotman still wants to see her team tested further against quality opponents to get a better idea where exactly it stacks up. The wins over three Valley schools at Semiahmoo were encouraging. “I feel very confident we can at least win a couple of the regional games at the Fraser Valleys,” she added. “We will see where this goes from here.” Trotman has been coaching most of this group since Grade 8 but she has been impressed with first-year players Hanna Hansen and Reiko Bohmert. Hansen and talented point guard Olivia Malesku are also standout fastpitch players with the 2001 Delta Heat. Juliann Jones is another key ingredient in the Pacers starting five. The team also features Nava Hothi, Abbey Wigglesworth, Marissa Neufeld, Jeenat Sidhu, Ceci Yang, Amrita Bains and Claire Bidulka. Kayla Hamalainen rounds out the team’s coaching staff. The managers are Kate Sinclair and Katie Carleton.

Storm captain joins Major Midget Canadians

Michael Tersigni has turned a productive week at the Richmond International Bantam Midget Hockey Tournament into a full-time opportunity with the Greater Vancouver Canadians. The B.C. Major Midget Hockey League club announced last week the South Delta Midget A1 Storm captain has been signed for the balance of the season. The 16-year-old centre was tied for the tournament lead in scoring with 11 points in six games as the Storm captured

the tier one title for the first time in the event’s 36-year-old history. Tersigni, who had already scored twice in a pair of games as call-up player earlier this season, helped the Canadians sweep a weekend series against the Kootenay Ice in Grand Forks. Greater Vancouver rolled to a 9-3 win in the series opener, led by a monster game from captain Scott Atkinson. The Edmonton Oil Kings prospect scored six times, including the final four goals of the game. His last three

came in just a 23-second span. Linemate Daniel Pearson added a goal and four helpers, while 15-year-old standout Sasha Mutala had a goal and three assists. Chris Douglas and Noah Kelly also scored. The rematch 24 hours later was a much closer affair thanks mainly to Kootenay goalie Jake Kemp. He made 57 saves but it still wasn’t enough as the Canadians prevailed 3-2 in overtime on a goal by Moose Jaw prospect Henry Rybinski.

REMEMBRANCES

EMPLOYMENT

OBITUARIES

GENERAL EMPLOYMENT

SIMPSON, Robert Edward & SIMPSON, Lena Ann On November 17, 2016, Lena Ann Simpson (nee Styba) passed away, closely followed into the night on December 4, 2016 by Robert Edward Simpson. “Bob” and “Lee” both lived a well-loved, honourable 98 years, and were married 64 years. They were fixtures in the small community of Boundary Bay, South Delta where they retired after many summers of Lee’s open kitchen for all the local beach kids, and Bob swimming with his children and grandchildren. Lee was a prairie girl, born in Griffin, Saskatchewan into a close railway family of four girls and one brother, all now deceased. After a childhood skating on the ponds and playing in the wheat fields, Lee trained as a nurse in Toronto and became a head surgical nurse during WWII, which affected her deeply. Moving to Lulu Island (Richmond) with her family and working at Shaughnessy hospital brought her within the welcoming eyesight of Dr. Bob. After a courtship involving chicken-scaring motorcycle visits at her mother’s home, and indulging her love of fishing by renting a boat at Sewells to chase salmon, they were married in 1952, and brought Marilee, Robert, and Paul into the world. Lee was an optimistic and pragmatic, fun-loving woman who loved cooking, canning, and chatting with her sisters; curling at the Arbutus club; or teaching her beloved grandson Robbie how to bake her famous apple pies. In midlife, having raised her kids with love and attention, her entrepreneurial spirit drove her to marshal the family’s help in opening “a little teahouse”, which turned into the Hawthornes Restaurant in Point Roberts. Perhaps Mom’s happiest place was holding her fishing rod at the front of a boat. The last to reel in her line as darkness fell - ever the undying optimist. Robert “Bob” Simpson was born in Vancouver in 1918 at Robson and Bute Street, and lived in the West End, swimming in English Bay and skating on Lost Lagoon. He was a successful and highly competitive student all his life, obtaining his BSc and MSc at UBC, then following in his father’s steps, his MD at Queens University. He was a Captain in the Army, serving at the very end of the war by escorting wounded soldiers and war brides home from England. Returning to Vancouver, he worked first at VGH and then spent the rest of his career at Shaughnessy Veterans Hospital where he became head of the Anesthesia Department. He was a ground-breaking educator on CPR, once demonstrating the new technique on daughter Marilee to a large QE theatre crowd. Bob spent his boyhood summers in Point Roberts and was a wonderful swimmer through 90 years of dips in Boundary Bay and multi hour snorkels in Maui. In his late fifties, he became a certified scuba diver. Retiring to their former beach house brought Bob and Lee close to the warm home of daughter Marilee, son-in-law Dirk, and grandkids Nicole and Robbie. Engaging with his beloved grandchildren Nicole, Robbie, Jack, and Lachlan brought new meaning to Bob’s life, and he delighted in spending time with them, swimming with Lachlan, driving Robbie and Nicole around to their events, and taking great pride in Nicole’s choice to follow him into healthcare. Bob’s last great quest was to reach 100, but being with Lee was more important in the end. A memorial for Bob and Lee will be held Sunday January 22, 2017 from 1 to 4 pm at the Beach Grove Golf Club, 5946 12th Ave in Tsawwassen.
