Tenants mad about mold Residents at Ladner Willows are concerned over inaction by BC Housing GRAEME WOOD
Families living in a social housing complex in Ladner say they’ve been left in the dark over dangerous and ongoing mold problems within their units. “Nobody’s come in to fix anything in my house. I haven’t been contacted. Nothing. No phone calls. No notices. But mine is one of the worst,” said Tania Tisdale, who claims her six-year-old daughter has developed asthma and respiratory problems from having lived in a moldplagued unit for five years. “About six months after we moved in I noticed a pattern in her cough; that it was lasting two to three weeks. But it would come back. It took three and a half years of non-stop walk-in clinics. They (clinic doctors) just kept telling me it was a cold,” said Tisdale, whose daughter was finally diagnosed and put on inhalers. Two units over from Tisdale is neighbour Alex, whose wife gave birth to their newborn daughter in late September. Alex, who didn’t want to be fully identified, said his wife underwent stress due to their precarious housing situation and then went into labour weeks ahead of term. Reports of mold have plagued Ladner Willows, a 30-year-old, 40-unit complex at Ladner Trunk Road and 55B Street, for years, according to residents. The mold problem appeared

Tania Tisdale says her six-year-old daughter developed asthma and respiratory problems from living in a mold-plagued unit for five years. to reach another tipping point this summer when a City of Delta inspection report noted landlord Red Door Housing Society had been violating the Residential Tenancy Act for “deficiencies” that do not comply with health, safety and housing standards. But instead of fixing the units, Red Door Housing, a registered charity and non-profit housing provider, has chosen to empty the units in order to redevelop the site, citing inability to pay for expensive building envelope repairs as the main reason. With 16 units now
empty, BC Housing said it conducted remediation reports in late August on the inhabited 24. According to a spokesperson, six units require repairs while Alex’s unit was deemed uninhabitable. Alex, who emigrated from Russia, was moved with his now five children into a nearby hotel. The stay lasted 24 days, he said, until they were finally moved into an empty unit. To date, their old unit, which Alex says they’d prefer to live in once repaired, has not been cleaned and fixed. Meanwhile, Tisdale
has not heard from BC Housing or Red Door Housing since her unit was inspected over two months ago. “Basically everything’s been at a standstill ever since. I don’t think one person has been in there working,” said Tisdale, referring to Alex’s old unit. BC Housing and Red Door Housing did not respond to requests made last week for updates to the mold remediation work. Delta South MLA Ian Paton said he has repeatedly contacted the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing over
the matter, although Minister Selina Robinson said last week she was unaware of any specifics. “Red Door Housing doesn’t seem to take any responsibility for the state of the place. I’m thinking, are you kidding?” asked Paton. BC Housing said on Oct. 12 it is waiting for a contractor to assess the needed repairs in the seven units. “We expect that remediation repairs will enable all tenants to move back into those seven units in the coming months,” said spokesperson Laura Matthews.

A bridge to replace the aging George Massey Tunnel, enhanced transit service, keeping Delta safe, improving affordable housing options and enhancing recreation are all top of mind for new Mayor George Harvie. Harvie and the rest of the new Delta council were sworn in Monday night at city hall in Ladner in front of more than 200 invited guests, family members and friends. Harvie was the first to recite the oath of office and oath of allegiance as Justice Barbara Norell administered the proceedings. He was then officially introduced as Delta’s mayor and presented with the chain of office. Councillors Dan Copeland, Alicia Guichon, Lois Jackson, Jeannie Kanakos, Dylan Kruger and Bruce McDonald were then administered the oath of office and oath of allegiance. Harvie said it was a “privilege and an honour” to stand before the community as Delta’s new mayor. “It has taken a tremendous amount of work and team effort to arrive at the council table tonight and I am grateful for the trust this community has placed in me,” he said. “I would like to congratulate the members of council — those who are returning and those who are joining us for the first time. You are taking on one of the most important jobs public life has to offer and I’m looking forward to working with you.” Harvie paid special mention to Jackson. “Under Mayor Jackson’s leadership we have seen Delta grow and prosper into the incredible city we know today. Our task as a new council, and my personal commitment to

George Harvie speaks to the crowd gathered at city hall Monday evening for the inaugural meeting of the new Delta council. you, is to preserve and build upon this outstanding legacy,” he said. “I am very excited for the next four years, working with council to make positive changes planned for our community.” Harvie then highlighted his priorities: keeping taxes low and Delta debtfree, working to keep young families and seniors in Delta, investing in new sports fields, tracks, and recreation facilities, keeping Delta safe, holding every other council meeting in North Delta, and achieving a replacement for the tunnel. He said the first task as council will be to set a 2019 budget at a workshop in early January. “This will set the groundwork for the next four years and will take Delta to a new level of excellence. I am commit-
ted to keeping taxes low, keeping Delta debt-free and putting the needs of Delta’s residents first,” Harvie said. Harvie will seek to establish a public safety and community issues committee to work closely with the police and fire departments. To keep young families and seniors in Delta, Harvie said the city will take immediate steps to streamline municipal processes to reduce project timelines. In terms of enhanced recreation services, Harvie said council will structure a four-year financial plan that will invest more in Delta’s sports and recreation facilities, including turf fields, running tracks and other outdoor activities that encourage fitness and social health. In what he called a
“refreshed” parks, recreation and culture commission, Harvie wants to see expanded and enhanced pickle ball facilities to provide 28 dedicated courts at 11 parks in the next four years, establishing a Delta families first policy to give Delta residents better access to facilities and programs, and establishing off-leash dog parks that are fenced and lighted in both North Delta and South Delta. Harvie also pledged to work in better cooperation with school trustees to see school district-owned tracks and sports fields brought under the city’s responsibilities. “Tonight, I have presented my priorities as mayor and working with council I look forward to achieving these results for Delta. Now it is time for me to get to work,” he said.
Chapo is an adorable and sweet ten month old male shepherd mix who weighs around 70 lbs. He came to us as an owner surrender when a good Samaritan was visiting Guatemala and found this pup on the street. He brought him back to BC hoping he could keep him, but his work schedule doesn’t fit Chapo’s needs and he has asked us to find him the best home! Chapo is a bit shy and nervous at first with people, especially men, but once he warms up with some treats, he is ALL LOVE. Kids on the street in Guatemala were not nice to him, and it will take some time and patience for him to learn to trust them again. Because of this we will not be considering homes for him with children under 16 years of age. He is AMAZING with all dogs, big and small. He LOVES to play and is very submissive. Ideally his furever family would have another high energy dog to help keep him mentally and physically stimulated. A second confident dog will help his insecurity with new people and situations. His current foster says he seems totally fine with cats too! This guy would be a great hiking, biking, and camping adventure companion! If you are active and outdoorsey and looking for a partner, here he is! Chapo is crate trained, house broken, and has no separation anxiety. He is currently mastering leash manners. Chapo is up to date on all shots and vaccines and is microchipped. If you think you are a good match for Chapo and he for you, please email us email@example.com

A complaint about how the City of Delta has handled the Enviro-Smart file does not warrant an investigation. That’s the findings of a Delta police review that concluded last week. Late last month the Optimist received a tip that Delta police were looking into a matter at city hall, including interviewing
officer reviewed materials that were submitted to police. She said she could not disclose the nature of the materials. “Based on the information Delta police has gathered to date, there is not enough to warrant an investigation into the matter,” she said. “The complaint was not made against an individual. The complaint was regarding the Enviro-Smart issue, and the process.”

Metro Vancouver issued the company an air quality permit in August that stipulates the composting operation must be fully enclosed by March 1, 2020. Ahluwalia said she has already spoken with Delta, Metro and some residents on effective communication plans. “Hopefully everyone comes prepared with some good ideas,” she said.

Not who they say they are
Delta police have issued a warning after two recent instances where individuals tried to gain access to homes while claiming to be a government or Crown corporation employee. The first instance occurred between 2 and 4 p.m. on Oct. 30 when a woman claimed to be from the City of Delta, and requested to do an inspection of a home in the Sunshine Hills area of North Delta. The woman did not provide any identification and was not driving a City of Delta vehicle. She walked through the backyard and interior of the home. Nothing was reported stolen. In the second instance, around 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 2, a man went to a home in the Nordel area of North Delta and claimed to be from BC Hydro. “No government or Crown corporation employee should come to your door and ask for entry without an appointment being made in advance,” said DPD public affairs coordinator Cris Leykauf.

he signals look to be getting progressively worse when it comes to a bridge being built to replace the George Massey Tunnel. Last fall when the NDP suspended the $3.5-billion project and appointed Stan Cowdell to lead an independent technical review, it wasn’t a good sign, but at the same time it made sense that the new government would want to do its due diligence before writing that kind of cheque. It has been harder to put a positive spin on the fact the government has had Cowdell’s report for months now but has refused to release it. Transportation Minister Claire Trevena originally said she would need the summer to review it, but given we’re now into November, it’s hard to believe an honest-to-goodness review of Cowdell’s findings is what’s holding things up. But perhaps the most damning signal, and what could ultimately be the death knell of the former Liberal government mega project, is that the province wants to first discuss the report’s findings with Lower Mainland mayors. The Mayors’ Council is set to meet next week, and despite many new faces around that table following last month’s elections, I can’t imagine the group suddenly embracing a new crossing of the Fraser River. With weighted votes and quid pro quo deal making, the Mayors’ Council is not about what’s best for the region, but what’s most beneficial to certain interests. There’s only so much money to go around when it comes to major infrastructure upgrades, cash other mayors would rather see expended on projects in their cities like a subway out to UBC or a SkyTrain extension through Surrey. If the NDP defers to the region’s mayors and kills the plan for an improved crossing (bridge or tunnel) along the Highway 99 corridor, it’s not about giving local politicians a voice, it’s simply abdicating the responsibility of dealing with what’s routinely characterized as the biggest bottleneck in B.C. Metro mayors might not give a second thought to the growing congestion at the tunnel, but that doesn’t mean Trevena and Premier John Horgan should ignore it too. Perhaps I’m reading too much into the signals, but something tells me that weeds will continue to grow in the fill piled alongside the highway.
Don’t abdicate responsibility as voting matters more than ever Voting, does it really matter in the end? Whether you are jaded by politics in general or just don’t care enough, I’m here to tell you your vote matters, and it matters now more than ever before because so much is at stake. For starters, this planet where you live. Forty-three per cent of Delta’s citizens voted for our city government which is better than the provincial average of only 36 per cent. I don’t understand why city elections draw fewer voters than provincial elections considering local elections affect us more directly than the actions of our senior governments. For those who stepped up to run in Delta’s race, I applaud everyone who tried and congratulate all who were successful, including our new mayor, George Harvie. It’s no secret my vote went to Jim Cessford, but I’m not bitter. Harvie won and Cessford gave him a good race. I look forward to engaging Harvie and our new council on a few matters. Here’s my list so far: to have an open mind about the bridge/ tunnel issue after the report is released, to seriously address river dredging and raising of the dikes, and to lobby for the return of the 601 bus for seniors and commuters. As for my favourite issue — Paterson Park and affordable housing — I’d like to see visioning

workshops where the community can have real input into this unique parcel of available cityowned land. I also believe charging “outsiders” more for using our recreation facilities is confrontational and unnecessary because we all cross municipal boundaries to access services and events not available here. It’s time to be open and friendly so other cities will want to work with us. Moving right along to our next test in saving democracy, proportional representation doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue whereas first-past-the-post is plain English, plus it’s a system we already know. If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it. Sorry folks, but it is broken and we have a small window of opportunity to fix it. The “No” side is ramping up the fear-mongering, saying it will allow extremists to take over,
when the opposite is true. Two examples: Doug Ford in Ontario and Donald Trump in the U.S. Over 90 countries use a proportional voting system, including over 80 per cent of developed countries such as Germany, New Zealand, Sweden and Denmark. Oddly, Canada, the U.S. and parts of the UK are the main outliers still using first-past-the-post. A PR system enables better decision making. Rather than each government reversing the policies of the previous government, there is more collaboration and continuity, resulting in more progress on long-term issues. Research also shows that countries with PR are more innovative. I hope you will give PR a chance. If you don’t like it after two election cycles, you’ll be able to vote on it again. As FDR said, the main thing is to do some homework. If you don’t know enough to answer the second question on the ballot, just answer the first. You can learn more at the Fair Vote Canada/BC website or on tonight’s televised debate between NDP Premier John Horgan and Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson.

It’s time for younger veterans to step up on Remembrance Day Editor: As you are well aware, Remembrance Day is fast approaching and as you have all probably noticed, our veterans group is getting smaller by the year. As a veteran myself, it is an honour for me to lead our veterans during the Remembrance Day parade. I am saddened that our group is getting smaller by the year as a lot of our older veterans have either passed away or are physically unable to attend the parade anymore. So this is a call to our young veterans of Delta and surrounding areas: It’s time to step up. A lot of our younger veterans feel they don’t belong in the Remembrance Day parade
because it was thought to be for the ladies and gentlemen who served in the Great War and the Second World War, and I know that because I was guilty of feeling the same way for years. Wrong! It is time for us to stand up and carry on this duty and great tradition because if we don’t, Remembrance Day will be no more. It is our duty to our community and country to make sure this never happens. Many of our younger veterans have served in Afghanistan, Iraq and many other places on peace keeping missions. Some have never served but have held the fort back home, but let’s remember one thing: you are all veterans. Be proud of that.
Support the Legion and the community for the great work that they do, not just for Remembrance Day but for the support and welfare that they give to our veterans on a daily basis. I honestly hope to see as many of you as possible join us on Remembrance Day morning and stay with us throughout the day, not just to honour the people who have come before us or to honour the people we served with, but to let your community honour you. Believe me, they really do. All details regarding Remembrance Day can be found at the Ladner Legion. Tony Richards On behalf of the Ladner Legion
Having your head in the sand is not a good place to be when waters rising Editor: It was shocking and disappointing to read that our new mayor — with MLA Ian Paton chiming in — is continuing our city council’s short-sighted lobbying on behalf of global shipping magnates and the BC Road Builders & Heavy Construction Association. Rather, they should be focusing on the long-term interests of the people of Delta. It is long past time for them to accept that their massive bridge boondoggle is dead and real solutions to transportation challenges south of the Fraser are needed. The most recent — and seriously alarming —
report of the International Governmental Panel on Climate Change informs us the world has just 12 years to make drastic cuts in carbon emissions. If we fail, the planet will blow through the precautionary threshold of an average rise in global temperatures of 1.5 degrees with lifethreatening repercussions for the entire biosphere. In South Delta, whose elevation above sea level is negligible, the impact will be two-fold: taxpayers will be forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to constantly keep raising the dikes surrounding our region in response to rising ocean levels; or, in the alternative, the dikes will
be breached with resulting destruction of homes, businesses and infrastructure with costs running into the billions of dollars. Ironically, the massive bridge and concurrent highway expansions they are proposing will inevitably facilitate increased single occupant vehicle use and truck traffic, the very things that are among the largest contributors to total global CO2 emissions. Unfortunately, it seems our representatives seem to be stuck with their heads in the sand, not a good position to be in when the waters rise above your ankles. Bob Ages

Small parties are nothing new and shouldn’t be feared Editor: Re: Adopting PR could open the door to a nasty underbelly, Community Comment, Nov. 1 The argument is heard that PR gives rise to smaller splinter parties and that may be true — it depends on the preferences of vot-
ers. Of course, that is just what a true democracy is supposed to reflect. Still, it might be of interest to learn that, since 2005, Elections BC says that some 40 different parties have contended for seats in our legislature, so small parties are nothing new, nor are they anything
to be afraid of, especially given a hefty five per cent vote threshold for proportional seats. So please stop the fearmongering about Nazis. Chicken Little has been put to shame by such exaggeration and innuendo. Nick Heath
Where have all those little ghosts Act of kindness Editor: & goblins gone in Tsawwassen? Editor: If you are wondering about the changing demographics of Tsawwassen, just count the trick-or-treaters.

Girls find insipration at symposium from women who break barriers
Police join with partners to present first annual Girls Who Lead
CHIEF NEIL DUBORD
The Delta Police Department is always looking for ways to connect with, and support, our youth. We recognize this is a critical element of our Community Safety Plan. In October, with the support of the Delta Police Foundation and the Delta School District, we hosted the first annual Girls Who Lead symposium. The morning started with a series of incredible women who presented to over 100 girls on their career and life paths. The lineup of speakers included a doctor, airline pilot, cancer researcher, pedorthist, firefighter, police officer and the second vice president of Toastmasters International. Each woman had individual messages for the girls about success and failure, different life paths, perseverance and hard work, but together they were impactful beyond our expectations. The afternoon was full of hands-on activities, including impaired driving education, use-of-force demonstrations, and a
Last month’s Girls Who Lead symposium organized by the Delta Police Department included a variety of hands-on activities. tour of an ambulance, fire truck and emergency response team vehicles. But by far the most popular of it all was a visit from a six-month-old K9 puppyin-training. The Girls Who Lead conference was developed by our very own women in the DPD who wanted to give girls an opportunity to hear from women who have broken down barriers, and who work in traditionally male-dominated sectors like policing, firefighting and the airlines. Interest in the event was immediate by both students in Delta as well as the speakers. By the end of the first full day of registration, the conference was fully booked. In talking to

the speakers, they enjoyed presenting as much as the girls enjoyed being there. The Delta police plan to host this event on an annual basis to give young women an opportunity to spend a day with role models, and learn the importance of education, persistence and determination. A special thank you to the Delta School District for supplying the venue and to the Delta Police Foundation for sponsoring the lunch and refreshments. The Delta Police Foundation has been generous in its support of a number of youth events, including the Youth Soccer Academy, the Student Police Academy and the

three-on-three basketball tournament. The Girls Who Lead symposium is now firmly planted in that list of events. How do we know if the day was a success? At the end of the event, there was a young woman waiting outside to be picked up. One of our symposium planners asked if the day had inspired her future plans. She replied that she wanted to be a police officer but her father was not supportive, so instead she was thinking about forensic psychology. She went on to say, “But after today, I think I am going to be a police officer.” Who knows, maybe she’ll be a future chief.

God says is true about you, because if you don’t you will create a false reality.” Our challenge is this. We need to find out what God thinks about us. What was His plan when he made us? How does He see us? The bible says, “He loves us while we were still sinners.” “Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.” (Galatians 4:7 NLT) A lot of people are simply unaware of the fact that God loves and accepts them. But I truly believe that it’s only when we discover His purpose for our lives that we will be able to walk in our true identity — children of God.

Acting becomes family affair Jude Wilson following in father’s footsteps after landing role on Disney series IAN JACQUES
i j a c q u e s @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .co m
South Delta actor Garfield Wilson continues to be busy with film and TV roles and now his son Jude is following in his footsteps. Wilson has had a busy year with a role in Benchwarmers 2, a guest spot on the TV series Loudermilk, a role in Hallmark’s Chronicle Mysteries 2, a lead role in a made for TV movie called Blue Esme and a recurring role in the series Man in the High Castle that will see him on set until February. He has also just landed a guest starring role in the ABC hit The Good Doctor. Wilson has also had roles in The Outer Limits, Dark Angel, Arrow and
Once Upon a Time, to name just a few. Between his acting roles and continuing to build his personal training business — Forward Fitness Inc., which he opened in 2005 — you would think there’s little time for much else, but he’s now mentoring 13-year-old Jude on the acting business. Jude was first approached by a casting agent after a dance competition in Burnaby three years ago. “The agent liked what she saw in Jude. We talked about it and he said he wanted to pursue this, so I talked with my agent and we went from there,” said Wilson. “I was clear when I spoke with my agent that I didn’t want to upset any schooling and that we
would bring him along slowly. This business can tend to be cruel, especially to young actors who can get a bit jaded after rejection.” Wilson had good conversations with Jude about the industry and started coaching him on acting roles and commercial auditions. “We said no to a few auditions because it conflicted with school, but he has always had this knack for being in front of the camera,” Wilson said. “He started going for some pretty great parts. He was this close for a major role of a street kid, but he didn’t get the part because the casting director thought he had too much of a leading man look, which is kind of funny.” Recently Jude landed a
role on the new Disney TV series Gabby Duran & The Unsittables, wrapping up his work on set two weeks ago. “It went really well. I had a lot of fun,” said Jude. “I was nervous at first, but I got to talk with the cast and the director. It was a real cool experience to see how things go down.” Wilson said casting directors love Jude’s
authenticity in front of the camera. “This was a good start and a good introduction,” he said. Jude added the acting bug hit him after seeing his dad in roles in Almost Human and Arrow. “I love the whole process,” he said. “It’s been really cool to experience this with my dad and learn about the business.”
Trio brings Grizzly Bear Town to Genesis Theatre IAN JACQUES
i j a c q u e s @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .co m
A unique evening celebrating Canadian West Coast music and culture is coming to Ladner’s Genesis Theatre next week. Terri-Lynn WilliamsDavidson, Bill Henderson and Claire Lawrence will perform music from their acclaimed album Grizzly Bear Town in a 7:30 p.m. concert on Friday, Nov. 16. Williams-Davidson is a Haida musician, artist and lawyer who has dedicated herself to the continuation of Haida culture. Henderson and Lawrence are prominent musicians, best known for their work in Chilliwack, among other projects. The trio performs music about place, spirit, culture and laws, enwrapped in guitar, sax and flute, expressed in the ancient Haida language. They will be joined by Jodi Proznick on bass, and Saffron Henderson and Camille Henderson on background vocals. “We like to help bridge cultures to help connect people of different backgrounds in the spirit of true reconciliation, and to have some fun on the way,” said WilliamsDavidson. Henderson and
Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson (centre) will be joined by on the Genesis Theatre stage by Chilliwack bandmates Bill Henderson (right) and Claire Lawrence. Williams-Davidson first collaborated on a project in 2008 recording traditional Haida songs by contemporary artists. “It was part of a larger project in which I collected together every single archival Haida song out there and produced it for the Haida Gwaii Seniors’ Society,” Williams-Davidson told the Optimist. “We wanted to create a box set of songs for
young people to learn the songs. A few years ago Bill was being honoured at a BC Music event to raise money for music in Haida Gwaii. Bill was the only musician there willing to try and figure out how he could play guitar to a traditional Haida song. So we got together along with Claire and created two songs for the concert and really liked what we created, so we said we should get together and record.”
A few years ago they came together sharing music, lyrics and recordings and released Grizzly Bear Town last year. “It’s a very different album in that most people are used to seeing Indigenous music with a lot of drums,” she said. “This is different because the music on the West Coast does not have a big drum feel. I hope people find it fresh and a new take on music.”
She said she has never performed in Ladner, and is looking forward to meeting a new audience. “I have friends who have performed there who have said it is a wonderful theatre,” she said. “I like the idea that it is part of a school and we might reach that younger audience as well.” Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at: http:// connect37.deltasd.bc.ca or by calling 604-940-5550.

Louise Cadrin Following the Amazon launch, Cadrin plans to launch in book stores and have readings and signings. You can also see more about the book on Facebook as well as email: author@mlouisecadrin. com to be put onto an email distribution list for future updates on the book. Cadrin’s decision to write a book began some years ago after traveling to Europe to celebrate her 50th birthday. “The entire trip was a period of deep introspection and reflection, with the last seven days spent in rural Tuscany, Italy,” she
recalled. “Every evening as darkness fell, I would walk down to the river and be filled with wonder as the woods came alive with masses of fireflies, their lights reflecting on the water. Coupled with this magical view were the sounds of nature, including the deep rhythmic songs of the bullfrogs. That trip, and in particular the mystical experience in Tuscany, was a turning point in my life. “Upon returning home, I felt a pressing need to write. Two weeks later the prologue of the book was birthed. As the book progressed, the characters and their storylines continued to be revealed to me during my many walks in nature.” She said the book was written in a few years, but after going to a writers’ retreat this spring in Mexico where she met her publisher, it has been full steam ahead ever since. “I’m very excited to see the reactions from the reading public,” she said.

Dear Community of Delta, The Delta Hospice Society Board of Directors has completed its engagement with the citizens of Delta, hospice staff, volunteers and its membership to gain an understanding of their perspectives related to the provision of Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) services at the Irene Thomas Hospice. The plans to conduct this review were outlined to the community in March of this year and resulted in several months of very active feedback and discussion, including a hundred pieces of correspondence from all across Delta. We also conducted a professional telephone survey across the community. Thank you for assisting us in this challenging undertaking. We found that opinions on MAiD varied widely across the spectrum of all groups engaged. This was also reflected in the discussion at the hospice boardroom table, and no clear consensus was reached. The Board of Directors has decided not to recommend changing the Society's Bylaws or Constitution in a way that would cause staff to change current procedures at the Irene Thomas Hospice. We will continue to provide compassionate and skilled transfers from Irene Thomas Hospice for patients requiring any medical procedure, including MAiD, to hospital, home, residential care or other place of a person’s choice. We will continue to monitor the views, regulations and practice of MAiD throughout our community. Delta Hospice Society Board of Directors October 11, 2018

Delta Gymnastics wants to bring back the magic of Christmas for children with no lineups involved. On Sunday, Nov. 25, it is offering a unique visit with Santa that goes beyond what is typically available. “Our concept is to offer the children the opportunity to spend some quality, one-on-one time with Santa Claus in a relaxed and cozy winter wonderland,” says Sharon Gillespie, Delta Gymnastics’ business manager and organizer of the special event. “We create a Christmas storybook setting, exquisitely decorated and perfect for a child’s and their family’s exclusive time with the man in red.” Bookings are done in 15-minute increments, so it gives families time to enjoy their child’s interaction with Santa. Parents are asked several questions in advance of the event to make sure that Santa knows something about each child in order to make their visit as spe-

Remembering Ladner’s fallen heroes Historian tells story of five young men who died in the final two months of the First World War PETER BROZNITSKY
Ladner was full of a mixture of emotions in the fall of 1918 as the leaves blazed in their new colours and the temperatures dropped. Hope and anticipation mixed with sadness and resignation. Hope because the Great War in Europe, the war that should have ended at Christmas 1914, was winding down, the German foe suffering defeat after defeat in the field. Sadness because five Ladner boys fell in September and October, their names to be engraved on the cenotaph in Memorial Park three years later in the spring of 1921. John Falk was the son of Gus and Ellen Falk of Westham Island. Soon after the 1896 birth of twin boys John and George in Gothenburg, Sweden, the Falks immigrated to Canada and found Delta.
The Swedish family fit in easily in the close-knit community of Westham Island, and John and George are pictured with the Junior Maple Leaf lacrosse team in 1912. In May 1915 John joined the 121st Western Irish in New Westminster and after a year of training in the Royal City and in Vernon, sailed to England with his lacrosse chum Stan Smith. The boys landed in France in December 1916 to become part of the 102nd Northern British Columbians. John was in hospital with a serious bout of rheumatic fever in April 1917. He missed the epic battle at Vimy, and learned in England of Stan’s death on the ridge. John fought with the 102nd at the Battle of Hill 70, Passchendaele, and through 1918 up to the One Hundred Days, the last major offensive by the Allied forces. Twenty-two-year-old Lance Corporal John Falk
passed through his head. He lies buried in Dury Mill Cemetery in the Pas-deCalais. Ladner-born Guy Taylor was the oldest son of Frederick and Lottie Taylor. Born in 1894, he stayed out of the war until early 1918, possibly due to his occupation of locomotive fireman. Taylor was conscripted under the MSA Act of 1917 and began training at Willows Park in Victoria in January 1918. SUBMITTED IMAGE He landed in John Falk was killed in September England in April and was sent to of 1918 at the age of 22. France on Aug. fell on Sept. 2 near the 23. He was distown of Arras, instantly patched to the 7th British killed by a piece of shrapColumbia Battalion. nel from an enemy highOnly a month later, on explosive shell, which Sept. 27, 1918, 24-year-old
Taylor was killed in action during a massed attack by the Canadians against the Germans on the other side of the Canal du Nord. Taylor lies buried at the cemetery outside Cambrai. Taylor would have met up with Lester Handford in the 7th Battalion. Son of Richard and Gertrude Handford, Manitoba-born Lester enlisted in 1915 into the 62nd Battalion in Vancouver before finding a home along with many other Ladner pals in the 131st Westminster Battalion in January 1916. Sailing in November 1916, Handford was transferred to the 4th Battalion Canadian Railway Troops in February 1917. The men of the CRT built hundreds of miles of new light railway lines and maintained the heavy railway lines of the French. In August 1918 Handford transferred to the 7th, a unit that had been in the thick of it since 1915.
On the same day as Taylor, 22-year-old Corporal Lester Handford died in action, killed instantly by an enemy shell exploding near him on Sept. 27 during the attack on the Canal du Nord. He lies very near to Guy Taylor, only a few rows apart, in the cemetery at Cambrai. Only a year later, Fred Whitworth became one of the few sailors in the infant Canadian Navy to perish on active service. Ladner-born Whitworth was the son of Isaac and Christie. Seafarers, not farmers, the Whitworth family ran the ferry than putted back and forth between Ladner and Woodward’s Landing in Richmond. His sister Leonie had enlisted as a nurse in the Canadian Army in 1915 and older brother William had for some reason travelled to England in 1917 to enlist in the British Royal Engineers.

Sailors died while in Canada
CONTINUED from Page 19 In October 1917, Whitworth enlisted and began his training in Esquimalt in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve. He must have been sharp, as he quickly rose from ordinary seaman to the rank of leading stoker, aboard the HMCS Galiano. The Galiano was a former Canadian government fisheries patrol vessel. On Oct. 30, 1918, the Galiano was attempting to get from Cape Scott at the northern tip of Vancouver Island to what is now known as Haida Gwai. In heavy seas, one distress signal was received before the ship vanished, going down with all hands. Twenty-one-year-old Whitworth was presumed drowned, along with 35 other Canadian sailors. For the next several years, his parents battled with the Canadian government and his insurance company to receive his final pay and other monies owing. His friend Malcolm Leonard is another name on the Ladner Cenotaph. From Evie on the Orkney Islands of
Malcolm Leonard died of influenza on Oct. 31, 1918. Scotland, Leonard had settled with his older brother James in Ladner. James built many of Ladnerâ€™s fine homes before the war, including the Handford residence in 1912. Malcolm worked with Fred on the small provincial government ferry to Richmond and also rose to the rank of leading stoker in the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve. It is unlikely that Leonard ever learned of his friendâ€™s death off the coast of B.C. Twenty-nine-year-old
Leonard died of influenza at Esquimalt on Oct. 31, 1918, posted to the depot ship HMCS Rainbow. His sickness was part of the first wave of the Spanish Flu that killed thousands in Victoria and Vancouver and millions around the world in 1918/19. It was only a few days later that the Armistice was declared in Europe. The Great War had ended. On Nov. 11 each year we now honour the sacrifice of these five men, and 22 others, who died in the War to End All Wars.

Cenotaph is a place of solace and peace Association was formed at end of First World War to create a symbolic place of internment REV. JIM SHORT
Nov. 11 means different things to people. It’s a long weekend and a day off. It’s a parade and we love the pipes and drums and to see the legions of young people from various organizations. Coordinating the logistics of speakers, wreaths, sounds, songs, poems, the flyover and getting everyone gathered around Memorial Park is a challenge. It’s a time we want to see our leaders and so woe betide the politician who is not present. Nov. 11 is a significant source of revenue for the Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Fund which supports many good causes. Nov. 11 is not without its controversies — those who wear red poppies for remembrance decry those who choose to wear white poppies for peace. When we create conflict around an individual’s right to express what they believe in, I am afraid we
are forgetting the fear of dictatorship and fascism which took Canada to war in 1939. Some will say Nov. 11 steers too closely towards celebrating war, nationalism, Canada’s martial spirit and its military victories. It is not accurate, though, to refer to what is rightly called a “cenotaph” as a war memorial. To focus us on what Nov. 11 is about we need to go back to its origins. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the violence and death of the “war to end all wars” technically ended. In the initial celebrations of victory and the relief of peace, the families and friends of the 60,000 Canadian military killed or missing in action were left with their grief and loss. Since human remains were not returned to Canadian families and many had simply been pulverized into nothing in the first industrial-scale war, there were no graves in Canada for those who
Rev. Jm Short says it’s not accurate to refer to the cenotaph in Ladner’s Memorial Park as a war memorial. loved the war dead to visit. Across Canada there was a movement to create places for those grieving families to gather for the funeral service they never had. Hence in Memorial Park our marker is properly called a “cenotaph” — an empty tomb — a symbolic place of internment. The Delta Memorial
LEST WE FORGET
Message from the Mayor and Delta Council
Park Association was formed to raise funds. Four acres appropriately named Memorial Park were purchased from the estate of William Ladner. The cenotaph was unveiled in 1921 by H. N. Rich whose son Sidney (dead in the Ypres Salient) was one of the 27 young men from Delta who did
not come home from war. We can only imagine in those early years on Nov. 11 the broken-hearted who found solace and peace in such a beautiful and solemn place. I know some of that feeling as a Canadian Forces veteran having been both to war and in combat. For me, Remembrance
Day narrows down to the last post, the silence, the piper’s lament, the rouse where each year my heart again is broken as I remember those I knew who died or were injured in mind and body over my 26 years of military service. Whether a veteran of the Second World War or the recent conflicts in the former Yugoslavia or Afghanistan, we who have seen war will never forget those who bled and died alongside us. I share this with all of you so that when Nov. 11 comes and wherever you pause or gather at 11 a.m. that you might remember what the real purpose of this day is. In the words of the poet Laurence Binyon: “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.” Rev. Jim Short is the minister at Ladner United Church.

Bells will ring at sunset as part of national initiative
The Ladner Legion and Ladner United Church are both holding special events in recognition of Bells of Peace this Remembrance Day. An initiative of the Royal Canadian Legion, Bells of Peace pays tribute to all Canadians who served in the First World War. Religious communities across Canada are invited to join in the ringing of 100 bells as close to dusk as is possible to echo Laurence Binyon’s poetic words, “At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.” The Ladner Legion will ring bells at approximately 4:36 p.m. on Sunday. In a separate event in the evening, the community is invited to Ladner United Church. At 6 p.m., Countdown to Sanctuary Wood, a documentary produced by local filmmaker Cliff Caprani about a young Ladner soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice in what was to be the war that ended all wars, will

Sidney Rich died in the Second Battle of Ypres on June 3, 1916. As his remains were never recovered, he is memorialized on the Menin Gate (Ypres). Caprini had access to local and family accounts for his moving documentary. At 7 p.m., there will be a presentation by Peter
Broznitsky whose passion for history has led to his researching the names on the cenotaph in Ladner’s Memorial Park. Rev. Jim Short said the service will be interactive — historical items will be passed around, participants can choose to read a name from the cenotaph and to also participate in the bell ringing.

Jackson receives first poppy
The Ladner Legion used the launch of its annual Poppy Campaign last month to pay recognition to long-time Delta Mayor Lois Jackson during a presentation at city hall. Jackson was presented with a poppy to initiate the campaign from chair Gerry Bramhill, along with branch manager Jacky Hillairet, secretary Olwen Demidoff, treasurer Tom Easton and executive atlarge Frank Taylor. Also in attendance were
Delta police Chief Neil Dubord and fire Chief Paul Scholfield. Every year, the Royal Canadian Legion conducts the Poppy Campaign, along with thousands of its members, to raise funds from donations made from the distribution of poppies by volunteers. All donations go directly towards supporting veterans and their families. “It’s an honour to receive the first poppy for the Ladner Legion’s annu-
al campaign,” said Jackson. “Supporting our veterans and fostering the tradition of remembrance is vital in reminding us of the past sacrifices and the courage of those who served and are still serving.” The Legion also presented Jackson with a certificate of appreciation in recognition of the City of Delta’s long-time support of the Legion through grants, assistance with permits and the annual Poppy Campaign.

Bay quilting guild presents Quilt of Valour to veteran
Long-time resident and veteran Lloyd Jones was recently presented with a special gift. In a short ceremony at the Tsawwassen Legion late last month, the 95-year-old was presented with a Quilt of Valour, which was given to him on behalf of Quilts of Valour Canada by members of the Boundary Bay Quilters Guild, including Debbie Gomersall, Carol Haldane and Sandy Holland. The quilt was pieced by Haldane and quilted by Jean vanderwel. During the Second World War, Jones served with the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders as a rifleman, Bren gunner and despatch rider. “Our guild members support the community by providing charity quilts for many causes, such as baby quilts for struggling new mothers, comfort quilts for cancer patients and Quilts of Valour,” said Gomersall while making the presentation. “These three types of

Every year, since 2009, our guild has given approximately 20 quilts to Quilts of Valour Canada, which supports our injured Canadian Armed Forces’ members, past and present, with quilts of comfort. “The label on each quilt reads: handmade with
love, respect and gratitude for your sacrifice to Canada. May the hugs stitched into this quilt give you comfort, strength and love. This presentation is special to our guild because we usually don’t know who receives these quilts, but today we do.” Also present at the ceremony were Neil Jones and Peggy Cagna, son and daughter of Jones.

Remembrance Day poppy has gone digital
The Royal Canadian Legion’s Remembrance Day poppy has become digital for an online fundraising campaign that is the first of its kind in the world. To complement the traditional lapel poppy, a new “digital poppy” will be available at www. myPoppy.ca until Nov. 11. Canadians will be able to personalize it, dedicate it and share it online — and add their own family stories and images — as their pledge to never forget those who served and sacrificed for our freedom. The digital poppy is being supported by a number of leading Canadian personalities,
athletes and organizations, including recording artist Justin Bieber, artistic luminaries Margaret Atwood, Sandra Oh and former Mrs. Universe Ashley Callingbull, and Hockey Night in Canada’s Don Cherry and Ron MacLean. “For every Canadian, the bright red poppy stands for our country’s greatest values, and the debt we owe to the brave souls who put everything on the line to fight for us,” said Cherry. “I’m dedicating my digital poppy to my great uncle, Sgt. Thomas William MacKenzie, who died in battle four days before Armistice Day in 1918.” The 2018 poppy cam-
paign was officially today with Royal Canadian Legion president Tom Irvine presenting the symbolic first poppy and introducing the first “digital poppy” (a two-sided digital representation of the flower) to Governor General Julie Payette. “Canadians have enthusiastically supported the Legion’s lapel poppy campaign for many years and the traditional ‘on-street’ donations will continue across the country. But in an increasingly cashless society, we wanted to give people another way to support their veterans,” said Danny Martin, deputy director of the Royal Canadian Legion. “The
Legion’s new digital poppy campaign will allow people to donate online and share their remembrance in a meaningful, personalized manner.” Once downloaded, the digital poppy can be posted on the donor’s social media feeds of their choosing, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. Digital poppy owners will also have the option to use their digital poppy as their profile images as well as adding personal stories and significant photos to

postings. Digital poppy ambassadors are telling their own stories as they commit to sharing their digital poppy this year. “I’m dedicating my digital poppy to Brig-Gen. T.G. Gibson, my spouse Graeme’s father,” said Canadian literary icon Atwood. “He fought in World War Two in Italy and then through Holland and into Germany. The main street of Deventer in Holland is named after him, as he and his troops were able to liberate it without destroying it, thanks to information smuggled to him by the Resistance. There are many Canadian soldiers buried there, and the schoolchildren place white roses on their graves every Easter.” International model, actor and activist, Callingbull tells a particularly poignant story: “I’m working with ancestry. ca to re-connect with my great grandfather, Maxime Papin, who along with many Indigenous
Canadians served with distinction in the Canadian military. My digital poppy is dedicated to him and I’m asking my social media followers to do the same in support of our veterans.” All funds raised from both the traditional lapel and the new digital poppy are directed to the Legion’s Poppy Fund. This is the first time that Canadians will be able to donate in such a manner online. The Poppy Fund is a significant fundraising initiative for the Legion and supports essential programs and services for all of Canada’s veterans, including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families. “Donations made via www.mypoppy.ca will be distributed to a Legion branch that is nearest the donor’s address,” said Martin. “In this way, funds support local, communitybased initiatives for veterans.” The introduction of the digital poppy, and the opportunity for online donations, represents a fresh approach to the Legion’s annual national poppy campaign as it presents a new, modernized source of funding for the Legion’s Poppy Fund. It is designed to reach younger audiences of potential donors who recognize and embrace the impact and power of social media-based initiatives like the digital poppy.

Partnership proves delicious for Southpointe Academy students IAN JACQUES
i j a c q u e s @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .co m
Grade 7 and 8 students at Tsawwassen’s Southpointe Academy recently celebrated the fruits of their labour. Students brought in the new school year with a Harvest Celebration thanks to a community partnership with the Earthwise Society. For more than a year, Southpointe has linked up with Earthwise in a garden located behind the school. Earthwise provides the instructors and the students work in the garden once a week for almost two hours, getting handson experience in food production and sustainability. “It’s a great partnership and opportunity for the students,” said Southpointe vice-principal Cori Kusel. “While the students are out there they learn about the importance of sustainability, the history of farming, the science of farming and they can take that knowledge back into the classroom for their other studies. One of our goals is to really work with our community, so this has been a nice partnership working with
Students at Southpointe Academy in Tsawwassen are learning about food production and sustainability through a partnership program with Earthwise Society and Bria Communities. Earthwise.” Likewise, Earthwise has seen the merits of the partnership. “With having our farm site so close to the school we thought it was an easy partnership and the school has embraced it,” said Earthwise executive director Patricia Fleming. “One of the things people look forward to when they are growing food is eating and sharing it with others, so we wanted to wrap-up the year with a Harvest Festival, but with the school year finishing in June and the height of
the harvest is in the fall, last year we worked with the students to have a harvest celebration as a welcome event for the new Grade 7 students where the last year, now Grade 8 students, would hand over the program, share their knowledge and also share their harvest.” The partnership extends further into the community. Earthwise teamed up with Bria Communities on a farm-to-table initiative and Chef Rodrigo Prado and his team have created dishes for the senior resi-

dents at The Waterford in Tsawwassen. Prado has also shared his experiences with the students and worked with them in his kitchen to create dishes and pass on his love for food. “We love the opportunity to be partners in the community and to collaborate with Earthwise and Southpointe is just awesome for us,” said Bria Communities marketing partner Janice Miller. Fleming said the partnership is a fine example of what can be accomplished with cooperation.
Snow Angels needed
i j a c q u e s @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .co m
The City of Delta is looking for a few angels to show some neighbourly love and help shovel snow this winter. The Snow Angels program matches volunteers with Delta residents who are unable to shovel snow from their sidewalks and footpaths. During periods of heavy snowfall (5 cm or more), Snow Angels are automatically dispatched throughout the community to residents who request assistance to clear these areas. The Snow Angels pro-
gram has quickly become a mainstay initiative during Delta’s unpredictable winters. To become a Snow Angel, volunteers must be at least 13 years old and own a snow shovel. Community groups are encouraged to register together. Delta has information sessions planned to give residents more information about the program. In South Delta, sessions will be held on Thursdays, Nov. 15 and 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Ladner Leisure Centre. Call 604-946-1411 to sign up in South Delta.
Deltassist is relying on public to donate toys, food at Christmas
Deltassist’s Christmas programs are gearing up, which means the social services agency will be gratefully accepting donations of toys and food. Deltassist continues to rely on the support of the community to meet the increasing need of lowincome families, seniors and individuals in Delta. This year’s Toy Depot will be held Dec. 11 to 13. Toys are needed for children from birth to 16 years of age. As always, the need is greatest for infants and
teens. Christmas food hampers are being delivered by local service clubs on Dec. 22. Items most needed include breakfast cereals, canned ham and chicken, canned hearty meals (stew), peanut butter, rice, pasta and sauce, hot chocolate and cookies. New, unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items can be dropped off at Deltassist’s Ladner office, 202–5000 Bridge St., from 9:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. weekdays.

FIRE & ICE
Delta was Ablaze under the Moonlight!
20th Annual Gala Raises over $739,000 for Delta Hospital On Saturday, November 3rd the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation hosted the 20th Annual Moonlight Gala at Tsawwassen Springs, and raised over $739,000 (NET) for Delta Hospital. The Foundation was pleased to announce $629,000 at the end of the evening but were surprised with an additional $10k, and then, thanks to an anonymous donor who generously gave $100k, the new grand total was brought to $739,000. It was a record-breaking evening thanks to the support of our sponsors and 360 enthusiastic and generous guests in attendance. Proceeds from this year’s Gala will go towards the purchase of a new CT Scanner for Delta Hospital. Through all the support received, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation is now much closer to the $1.7 million committed for this vital piece of medical equipment for Delta Hospital’s busy Medical Imaging department. The current CT scanner at Delta Hospital is nearing the end of its lifespan. This hardworking machine is running at full capacity, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. “The Gala was an overwhelming success,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. “We thank our attendees, sponsors, auction and prize donors, event volunteers, and the Gala committee organizing members. We could not have done it without their amazing support.” As part of the evening’s festivities, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation was thrilled to recognize the Toigo family as this year’s Tribute Honouree for their significant contributions to Delta Hospital and to the community. After a heartwarming video, made possible by Tribute Sponsor Port of Vancouver, Elizabeth Toigo and 2 of her sons, Peter and Ron accepted the tribute plaque on behalf of the Toigo family. This year’s theme of Fire & Ice set imaginations ablaze and delighted all who were in attendance. The evening included spectacular décor, amazing entertainment and a scrumptious 3-course dinner. Once again, sports radio personality and Tsawwassen resident James Cybulski led the way as Emcee for the night of fun and fundraising. After dinner, the entertainment and fundraising continued with a fast paced live auction led by auctioneer and South Delta MLA, Ian Paton. An overwhelming display of generosity followed during the Fund a Need call out for a new CT scanner for Delta Hospital. The evening ended in the Crystal Lounge with music by DJ Pri of GirlOn Wax, accompanied by Sax Player Karla Sax and Percussionist Pher.

It may be that we have cut the grass for the last time before the rain falls in earnest, but when we’re back at it regularly, one thing may change: the lines on the lawn. We have always been east-to-west kind of people. Sometimes north to south, but not so much. It’s usually east to west.
We run the lawn mower parallel to the fence in the rear and the house in the front. One way down. One way back. Where grass cutting is concerned, we’re pretty boring people. We may just change that up. It may be too expensive to overhaul the landscaping or redo the driveway, but heck, the lawn cutting’s easy. “So,” I said to the husband recently. We had exhausted our discussion of football and the weather, so I decided the time was right for a topic we seldom land on. The grass. “What do you think of diagonal?” I asked. “Diagonal?” he said. “Diagonal what?” “Diagonal lines on the

lawn, of course,” I said. “I mean, I know it’s still November, but before you know it, we’ll be cutting the grass again. Never too early to think of the lines.” The husband stroked his chin and looked at me as though I’d lost it. “I like diagonal,” he said after a minute. “Me too,” I said. “But it’s challenging. I mean, given the tree in the middle of the front yard.” We considered the other possibilities. We could do the lattice cut, I suggested, a look that resembles the crust on apple pie. It’s the double cut: east to west, then north to south. “The double cut is double the work,” pointed out the husband. “I like it better with apple pie.” What about the Zamboni cut, I wondered? “The Zamboni cut?” asked the husband “Come on!” I said. “You’ve seen more than your share of hockey
games! You start on the outside and go around and around and around in circles and finish in the middle.” The husband and I were both trying to picture a back yard version of the ice rink. “Not a good look,” said the husband. “Agreed,” I said. ‘Forget the Zamboni cut.” That left the hither and yon approach. Or hither and thither. Whatever. In essence, I told the husband, the style is kind of like abstract art. You let the mower take the lead, and whatever happens happens. The husband tried to imagine the outcome. “Mmm,” he said. “Not sure of that one.” I wasn’t either. So come lawn-cutting season, we’ll probably stick with the status quo. East to west it will no doubt be. On occasion, we’ll go north to south.

Hospice helps those grieving cope with holidays

A special gathering will be held at the Centre for Supportive Care on Wednesday, Nov. 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. to reach out to

those who are bereaved and apprehensive about the upcoming holiday season and other special occasions. Even though holidays and special days are joyous celebrations filled, for many, with rituals, traditions and love, they can be painful for those who have been touched by death. Instead of lifting heads and hearts with pleasant memories, they can act as sad reminders.
The free presentation will be offered by Centre for Supportive Care counsellor Debra Wolinsky and music therapist Kristen Morrow. There will an opportunity to light a memorial candle in honour of the person who has died. Pre-registration is appreciated, but not necessary.

UBC women’s softball coach Gord Collings has welcomed three South Delta girls to his program for the 2019-20 season (from left) Hanna Hansen, Olivia Malesku and Megan Hendrickson. All three are members of the powerhouse 2001 Delta Heat.

m b o o t h @ d e l t a - o p t i m i s t .c o m
For Tsawwassen resident and UBC women’s softball coach Gord Collings it just might be his most convenient recruiting class ever. When it came time to fill five future roster spots with 2019 high school graduates, Collings looked no further than one of the most accomplished teams ever to come out of the Delta Fastpitch rep program. The 2001 Delta Heat won the U16 Canadian championship in 2017 and earned bronze this past summer in its first of three attempts at the U19 level. Now four players have officially committed to continuing their careers with the Thunderbirds — Megan Hendrickson, Hanna Hansen, Olivia Malesku and Emily Horne. “They are very special. Probably one of the top three teams ever,” said Collings who enjoyed plenty of success with the Heat organi-
zation himself before taking his coaching career to the university level. “They have a skill set that fits perfectly for us. They are also character athletes and those are the kind of athletes we want at UBC. The big plus is the academics and they are very good academic students as well. They have the complete package.” Malesku, Hansen and Hendrickson have been teammates in South Delta since their Super Mite days back at the U10 level. UBC has been the desired destination of Hansen and Malesku for some time. “For me, I always wanted to stay in Canada,” said Hansen, who plays mostly center field for the Heat. “It was about staying close to home, getting a really good education and playing the sport I love.” “It was mainly because of the academics,” added Malesku, the team’s starting catcher. “That’s what really interested me and I
really like Gord too. He is a great coach and I wanted to try and help my own local university out.” UBC is a change in paths for Hendrickson. Her father Scott took his football career to the University of Minnesota before playing in the CFL. Hendrickson was heading south too before de-committing to Central Washington last summer. “As I kid I always wanted to be like him and play in the States,” said Hendrickson who was the winning pitcher in the 2017 nationals’ gold medal game. “But it’s definitely the right choice to go to UBC. They really focus on education and softball which is the perfect equal for me.” Making the girls’ decision easier too is the Thunderbirds get a steady diet of U.S. opponents playing at the NAIA level. So it’s a taste of U.S. college sports while attending one of the top academic schools in the country. “We have been building the
program and it’s a case of having them seeing it is a credible option playing NAIA,” continued Collings. “They had the opportunity to come watch us play and they see it is very competitive. It’s not just a matter of continuing their careers but also doing it in a competitive setting.” The local trio also happen to be multi-sport athletes. Hendrickson is a key member of the South Delta Sun Devils volleyball team that is trying to lock down another provincial berth. Malesku and Hansen have significant roles with the Delta Pacers basketball team that has enjoyed a very competitive run since Grade 8. Hansen also plays volleyball. “I find the players that are most successful are the ones that are multi-dimensional,” added Collings. “They have had the opportunity to participate in different sports and get a different perspective too. It allows them to get a better feel for team sports.” We will

Ladner’s Aaron Lattimer showcased his rowing talents indoors last week setting a new world record in a 6000 meter ergometer test (19-29, lightweight category) with a time of 19:16.0. Concept 2 will soon confirm his record time eclipses the previous of 19:21.80 set by Lucas Schäfer of Germany in 2017. The 22-year-old pulled off the record breaking time during the Rowing Canada Aviron ergometer test at the dome at Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence in Victoria. “Aaron is training in a competitive environment that is producing improvement in everyone,” said Canadian head coach, Dick Tonks. “He is improving physically and the evidence is shown in his erg records from last season, and in this week’s session but also in his oarsmanship shown at the 2018 World Championships.” Lattimer placed fourth at the Worlds in Bulgaria back in September – a noteworthy performance leap from his 14th
place position at the 2017 World Championships in Florida. He also finished fourth at the 2017 Under 23 World Championships and 11that the 2017 World Cup III in Lucerne. “The world record is always on your mind,” explained Lattimer. “I woke up that morning in good shape despite an already tough start to the week. There is good motivation within the group so after the first 1000m I felt good and said I’m going to go for it! With about 2km left, I knew I had it – it was just a matter of how low (in time) I could possibly go.” Lattimer will return to the water for next week’s National Rowing Championships and Canada Cup in Burnaby, starting on Thursday. His older brother Maxwell is also a member of the national rowing team and competed for Canada at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. The siblings came through the Vancouver College rowing program before taking their promising careers to UBC.

Golden run for Bonikowsky at cross-country provincials MARK BOOTH

South Delta Sun Devils closed out the cross-country season in style with more exceptional performances at the B.C. Secondary School Championships in Nanaimo on Saturday. Junior girls standout Madelyn Bonikowsky completed a wonderful three-week stretch by capturing gold by 18 seconds over her nearest rival — Comox’s Iris Tinmouth from Mark R. Isfeld — in a winning time of 15:30 on the 4.2 km course. The race featured 238 entires. A week earlier, Bonikowsky won the B.C. Athletics Championships Midget Girls title over 3 km and started the winning streak by taking first place in the Fraser Valley Championships in Aldergrove. It was also a hat trick of podium finishes for Jonathan Hofer. He captured silver in Nanaimo after falling just short in a dramatic photo finish to Matti

men’s youth race and gold at the Valleys. Nearly joining Hofer on the junior boys’ podium in Nanaimo was Jacob Bonikowsky. Madelyn’s twin brother was
fourth among 277 competitors, just two seconds behind bronze medalist Gage Zanette of John Barsby with a time of 14:09. The future looks bright for the SDSS program. Madeyln was joined in the junior girls’ race by Grade 8 runners Gemma Dumas, Leilani Jones and Laura Lamyin. Dumas finished 69th in a time of 18:14. The junior boys’ race also featured a pair of SDSS Grade 8 runners — Oliver Buchanan and Aidan Turner. Grade 10 Alex Lamyin was 120th with a time of 16:28. Meanwhile, Ladner’s Josh Woolgar captured the senior boys race — pulling away from Mt. Doug’s Liam Dwyer in the homestretch for a five-second victory among the whopping 262 participants. The Richmond Christian Grade 12 student covered the 6.2 km course in 20:32. Woolgar becomes the first Richmond student to win at the cross-country provincials in 18 years.

Goals galore in Devils run to Valley title
The South Delta Sun Devils are Fraser Valley senior girls field hockey champions for the 18th time in 23 years. However, it’s how they took care of business that was even more impressive. The Sun Devils rolled to three convincing victories, capped by a 4-0 win over Port Moody’s Heritage Woods last Wednesday’s championship game. That came on the heels of dominating performances over Charles Best and Gleneagle, giving SDSS momentum heading into the provincial “AAA” championships in a couple of weeks. “We are riding a bit of a wave. The girls are playing very well together and they are very exciting to watch,” said longtime head coach Neil McLennan. “We seem to have struck a good balance at the moment as we are attacking well but have not lost our defensive structure either.” It was a huge Valley tournament for Amy Williams who finished with seven goals over the three

The Sun Devils defeated Heritage Park 4-0 in the final. games. “That’s something new for SDSS,” continued McLennan who has watched his team struggle to score in most years. “Some of her scores were of high quality. She had a remarkable couple of days.”
The Sun Devils’ sudden goal scoring prowess was evident in the opening win over Gleneagle as they were constantly rewarded for excellent ball movement and teamwork. The impressive play continued in the semi-
finals against Charles Best, resulting in a 3-0 win. McLennan thought Heritage Woods might provide an interesting test in the championship game but instead watched his team roll again. Setting the stage for the

a tough round-robin pool that featured 1-0 losses to perennial powerhouses Handsworth and Oak Bay. Goalkeeper Nele Vogler was a standout against Handsworth. A win over St. Thomas Aquinas sent South Delta into placement games against Charles Best and Heritage Woods which resulted in 2-0 wins. The girls then moved onto the Golden Pumpkin Tournament in Surrey. Solid tests against Windsor and JL Crowe produced 2-0 triumphs. A tough 1-0 defeat to Kelowna followed despite produce a number of quality scoring chances. The Devils then battled Argyle to a scoreless tie, an excellent result against opponent and a sign of things to come at the Valley playoffs. “Hopefully we can keep this momentum going,” added McLennan. “We know the competition there will be much tougher always.” The 16-team provincial tourney takes place Nov. 14-16 in Surrey.

TODD, Wendy Ruth September 28, 1942 - October 28, 2018 With great sadness we announce the passing of our dear friend Wendy Ruth Todd.
In November 1963 Wendy met Norman Todd and they were married one year later. Eventually they had 2 children. Norm predeceased his wife April 2001. Wendy was vibrant and very active and had a passion for life. She was known for her exquisite crochet designs and always being ready with a helping hand. She thrived, though, in her own way always keeping busy, never feeling sorry for herself, and always excited to see her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Wendy would drive to Prince George to see her family. She loved the wide open road and loved to get away especially to Maui. Throughout her battles with her cancer, Wendy never gave up her sense of humour. She was well loved and will be missed by her many friends.

In lieu of flowers, if so desired, a donation to the Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Society or the S.P.C.A would be very much appreciated.
Share the love.
