Olson on death bed For father of victim, it’s the end of a harrowing ordeal by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter Corrections Canada has confirmed that serial child killer Clifford Robert Olson is dying from cancer. Known as the Beast of B.C., the 71-year-old Olson was transferred from a Quebec prison to a hospital in Laval earlier this week and may have just days to live. For Ray King, whose son Ray King Jr. was murdered by Olson, hearing of Olson’s pending demise was welcome. “He is going to die and it will be over. I will try and put him out of my mind, but I can’t put my son out of my mind,” said the Maple Ridge resident, who would prefer little attention be paid to Olson’s impending death from cancer. Over several months from 1980-81, Olson abducted, raped and murdered eight girls and three boys aged between nine and 18. See Olson, p14

Liberal regional director Marion Keys heaps praise on the current city councillor for recently winning the May Brown Award, which recognizes a member of the B.C. Liberal Party “who has performed tirelessly as a community and civic leader.” “We need more politicians in this world like this,” said Keys. “John doesn’t bend with the wind; he has a strong moral compass. He would be a great mayor for Pitt Meadows.” Showing off one’s political leanings is unusual for Pitt Meadows

strengths. It doesn’t hurt to have friendships with B.C. Liberal bigwigs, including Premier Christy Clark, he noted. “It gives you an ear,” said Becker, who door-knocked for Clark during her campaign to become MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey. “She knows who I am. I’ve built some credibility and it’s not just politically, it’s because I work hard. Therefore, when I say that Pitt Meadows needs something, these people know that I am serious about it.” See Becker, p15

Gerry Willms, who graduated from Pitt secondary in 1969 and now teachers there, sits in front of a display case honouring the occasion.

Pitt secondary celebrates 50 years S tor y by Rober t Mangelsdor f

erri Willms brims with pride as she walks the halls of her former and now current high school.

Back when she was known as Gerri Laseur, Willms was a student at Pitt Meadows Secondary School. “Class of 1969,” she says. Today, 50 years after the school first opened, she is a teacher at the school that so many Pitt Meadows residents have come to know so well. Next Friday, Sept. 30, the school will celebrates its 50th birthday. For long-time Pitt Meadows residents like Willms, the school has been a centre-piece for their community. “It’s really so much more than just a building,” she says. “We’re celebrating the whole community. They are one and the same.” It is the city’s only high school, and one with a proud tradition. Willms is helping organize the day-long festivities next Friday.

The school has been dolled up for the occasion. Display cases are packed with school memorabilia, yellowed textbooks and artifacts from years past. When the school opened in 1961, it was home to just 300 students in Grades 7 to 10. In 1964, the first class of graduates received their Dogwoods, and today the school is home to 1,062 students. The school has undergone numerous renovations in the past 50 years, adding a science wing, a new gym, a second floor, as well as the school’s new all-weather artificial turf field, which opened last year. The school has also been the incubator for a host of students who have gone on to fame and fortune, including race car driver Greg Moore, NHLers Brendan Morrison and Brandon Yip, and actress Molly Parker. Principal Dennis Dickson says the anniversary is a great opportunity to honour the many teachers who have spent decades at the school, teaching a generation of Pitt Meadows’ best and brightest. “We have a number of teachers who have been here for 20, 30 years,” he says. “I think

it says a lot about a school that many of them have been here as long as they have.” French teacher and decorated basketball coach Rich Goulet first came to the school in 1979, when it was less than half the size it is now. His first impressions of the school were not positive. “It seemed like the students seemed to be running things,” he says. “For the first two years I really questioned why I came here.” However, that quickly changed, he says, and thanks to support from the school’s administration and teachers, the school transformed itself into a well-respected academic and athletics school. As for the school’s sporting reputation, much of that can be credited to Goulet’s tireless work as a coach and athletic director. “When I was hired, the principal asked me to win him a provincial basketball championship in five years,” Goulet recalls. Goulet and his Marauders did it in four, winning the B.C. AA championship in 1983. In addition to the many teachers that have helped formed the fabric of the school, also critical have been the large number of com-

Car Care Conservative gov’t introduces big crime bill with Cyril Barry

REPAIR OR REPLACE Recently we have run into a number of vehicles no more than ten years old that have been neglected for so long that the cost to repair them and play catch up on maintenance exceeds the market value of the vehicle. These are 2000 and 2001 vehicles that require major engine repairs due to a lack of maintenance, combined with further repairs that can double the invoice cost. I find it totally amazing that a person would dispose of a vehicle so new and walk down to the nearest dealership of their choice and buy another new vehicle. I know there are a number of people who think they’re saving money by not spending a dime on the maintenance of their vehicle. But they don’t read this article, so I will concentrate on those of you that do believe in maintenance and plan on retaining some equity on your ten year old vehicle. Regular maintenance provides protection on a number of fronts: reduced daily operating expense, considerably smaller repair bills, little to no down time and a better resale value. Of course there are other things that factor in as well which do not have anything to do with the cost of operating your vehicle. How about those embarrassing leaks that drip from the bottom of your vehicle? Do you find yourself parking on the street when you go to visit someone rather than parking in their driveway for fear of leaving a puddle of black, red or green stuff behind. Or perhaps you have a vehicle which is hard to start or noisy which doesn’t bode well when you're trying to start it early every morning before you leave for work. The worst or most annoying thing is the vehicle that makes that horrendous brake noise, like a grinding noise just when you're slowing down to stop. A good rule of thumb is the new noise theory: if you hear a strange noise that’s consistent and seems to be getting worse, it’s probably a good idea to get it checked out. If in doubt, or you're too busy to have it checked out, pick up the phone and give us a call. We can help, it is our job and it is only a phone call, we are there to assist you. I think the strongest argument in favor of repairing or maintaining your vehicle is the piece of mind that you get when you know that you can rely on your vehicle to get you from A to B. It can take you away on a short or long trip and not leave you on the side of the road broken down, a long way from help or home. Drive smart, maintain your ride, have pride in knowing that you’re going to get where you need to go, and back without problems. That’s what regular maintenance of your vehicle is all about, piece of mind!

Mood in House quieter, but that may change: MP by P hil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter The waves of goodwill and partisan antagonism sweep back and forth across the House of Commons in Ottawa. While the mood in the House on the hill Wednesday was warm and fuzzy, commemorating the late NDP leader Jack Layton, Pitt Meadows-Maple RidgeMission MP Randy Kamp says that could change. With the first majority Conservative government (166 seats vs. the NDP’s 103) in Ottawa since the days of Brian Mulroney in the 1980s, Kamp says for now, the atmosphere is quieter. “I’m not sure if it feels any different. It’s certainly not as raucous.”

sures that we’re putting in place creates criminals, but it does keep them in jail longer. “Most Canadians agree with that approach, that people in jail should be in jail.” The legislation is called the Safe Streets and Communities Act and will also target terrorism. Key parts: • increased jail terms for offences against children, as well as the introduction of two new offences; • tougher terms for possessing drugs for the purpose of trafficking, including mandatory jail of six months for those growing six or more marijuana plants for the purpose of trafficking; • eliminating house arrest, or conditional sentencing, for serious or violent crimes; • allowing victims to participate in parole hearings; • allowing the court to look at a youth’s

Kamp added he’s not sure if that’s because there’s a majority government, “or we all decided to be nicer to each other.” Wednesday also saw the introduction of the Conservatives’ big crime bill, lumping some of the party’s earlier law and order issues into a single, major piece of legislation. The bills were all previously introduced and are now back to fulfill a campaign promise that the Conservatives would pass them within the first 100 days in office. “So none of these are new. We’re just keeping that promise,” Kamp said. While critics say the legislation is moving Canada towards an American style-system of jailing more people, Kamp disagrees. “I think our policy is quite different than the Americans. “None of these mea-

apply for pardons of criminal records; • allowing victims to sue those who committed terrorist acts, as well as certain countries. Local NDPer Elizabeth R o s e n a u thinks the bill is a gradual move towards the U.S. system, which she says puts more people in jail than the rest of the world. “This is an incremental change that’s going in the direction of the American system.” She wants a more flexible approach that identifies and treats those who are mentally ill or those with low-IQ or with addictions.

‘Target therapies for inmates’ Crime from p4 “When there’s really not a good social network for people … then what happens is once they’re in the criminal justice system, they’re stamped criminal. Mental health is not a consideration. “Addiction is no longer a consideration. It’s black-and-white thinking and puts everybody in the system and puts a stamp on them called criminal … and is very likely to lead them to a life of crime.” Rosenau is a Special Olympics swimming coach and pointed out that recent intervention helped save a developmentally disabled man from getting involved in a life of crime – costing the state millions in prison costs. Neither is there any structure in place at the school level to identify

those at risk. “But that’s not happening at the school level and my question is, why not?” A more efficient means of targeting therapies for inmates, she said, would be identifying each inmate’s ailment and treat for those conditions rather than waste money on pointless therapies. She says the reason the public supports gettough on crime laws is because the media sensationalizes coverage of crime and exaggerates its role. “That’s because there’s a great deal of sensational coverage of crime that makes it seem like it’s a larger problem.” But if more time was spent showing the other side, people would change their minds on the issue.

A plainclothes policing team gained grounds to search a room at a hotel in the 2160- block of the Lougheed Highway on Tuesday, executing the warrant at approximately 3:30 p.m. Officers seized a significant amount of crack cocaine, heroin, and crystal methamphetamine from both the suspect and the hotel unit, along with a large amount of cash they feel is proceeds from the sale and distribution of illegal drugs.

Talking to John Pitt Meadows Coun. John Becker, in his bid to become mayor, has started a private phone line, called the “Talk to John Line,” to hear the “interests, concerns and questions” of residents. In his recorded message for the Talk to John Line, he also mentions his law firm, and the phone number for it – if you need to talk one of his lawyers, he says. For what? Is Becker soliciting votes or clients? We thought he started the line for residents of the city. It’s on his campaign webpage. To “effectively serve as mayor,” you’d think Becker would want to come across neutral, selfless, to be able to separate business and politics. But his arrogance in this instance, that he doesn’t think voters can see through the thinly veiled advertisement for his business, is astounding, if not patronizing. Just as is the overly congratulatory sentiments from fellow Liberals in a press release this week announcing the mayoral candidate as recipient of an award from the party for being, basically, a good Liberal. If Becker really cares about the concerns of Pitt Meadows residents, then he shouldn’t be promoting his law firm under the guise of civic duty. Did he learn nothing from Don MacLean, who forgot to disclose that his insurance agency was awarded the contract for all municipal vehicles? Becker needs to understand that voters don’t care about his law firm. They care about their city, what he can do to help make it better, not whether or not he can help them with their wills and mortgages. If he doesn’t get that, then he should step aside and let someone else who does be mayor. If callers are confused, couldn’t they just say so and he’d call them back later, as promised? – The News

More need help than we imagine T

here’s good news and bad news in our town along the Fraser. The good news is there’s lots of people here looking after each other. The bad news is there’s more folks to look after in Maple Ridge than we imagine. Let’s begin with a big Along the Fraser Jack Emberly plus. It’s the community dinner that takes place in the CEED Centre building on 223rd Street on Saturday evenings. It’s the street ministry work of volunteers, mostly from St. George’s Anglican Church. They make soups, casseroles, and caldrons of hot coffee for anyone in the Ghetto who’s hungry. Bill Pearson, a principal in this effort, tells me the huge stack of sandwiches was made by an 83-year-old woman whose helper is 89. Robert Mitchell, a one-time church deacon who lived and worked here, started all this some time ago. Before he died of brain cancer in 2010, Mitchell walked the streets, handing out sandwiches he made while dreaming of doing more. You can’t find anybody here who doesn’t miss him. “His goal was to find a place where people could sit around a table and feel like our friends,” says Teri, Mitchell’s wife and a dinner coordinator. “Since we moved here, it’s been unbelievable. Robert would have been happy if that’s as far as the

Q

uestion of the week:

program went.” That’s good news. It helps to be inside a cozy building as the weather worsens, eating food prepared by people who could be watching Wheel of Fortune on TV, but are here instead. Rick Smith and Sue Elliot fill plates with spaghetti and baked beans someone delivered in crock pots. Tonight, they’ll run out before everyone in the line is served. I ask Rick and Sue what brings them here. “The dinner is the highlight of my week,” Smith says. “I can’t wait ’til Saturday night. I walk away feeling a better person.” Elliot finds comfort in the feedback she hears from the people who come through the door. “One of them,” she recalls, “told me this was the only place where she really feels respected. That’s a big reward for me.” I heard the same thing from Cindy, another regular volunteer who asked me to man the coffee urn so she could talk to guests and get to know them better. Later, I spoke to Natasha as she sat with a plate on her lap. “I’m low-income,” she explains. “This program has helped me out, and the chilli [baked beans] is really sweet.” Natasha asked Bill if she could help out in any way. Someone else mows the lawn here now. Giving back builds a community. The bad news? “We’ve gone from 30 when we started this in July to 100 now,” Teri says. “It’s heartbreaking to see so many struggling.” Many wear the signs of substance abuse. Others don’t fit any stereotype. “The clientele has changed,” says Teri. “These people are all on limited incomes.

Do you support continuation of the sheltered work program at the recycling depot? Yes: 93% – No: 7% (62 votes)

Less than a handful have steady jobs, and not good paying ones. There are people here who live in trucks, and cars, or sleep on couches. There are others who live in camps; there’s quite a few camps out there.” Melody is another regular volunteer who believes everyone deserves a helping hand. “We’re all precious,” she told me when I asked what brings here to the Dinner Program. And, “Robert asked me to get involved,” she adds. Robert Mitchell, a recovered alcoholic, inspired a lot of people here. There’s a story Teri tells about him that helps explain this. “Robert understood what it was like to be destitute; when nobody wants anything to do with you. He’d take $40 from our bank account every day to buy someone a meal, get the tools a man needed if that got him a job, provide bus fair for someone who had to get to a clinic.” “One night,” continues Teri, “we got a phone call one from a neighbour who said there was a young woman needing help curled up against the wall of our shop [motor repairs].

THE NEWS/letters The quality of mercy Along from p6 “It was her. She said, ‘You helped me. I wanted to tell you I’m clean now. I’m working, and I’ve reconnected with my family. I just wanted to ask if there’s anything I can do for you now.’” There was. “Robert told her there was a car wash the next day to raise money for his street ministry. She showed up at 9 a.m. and stayed until one with a sign in her hand, directing people in.” Two motorists had a special reason to get a car wash – the woman’s father and brother. “Each handed Robert a hundred dollar bill. They said, ‘Thank you for bringing our family together again.’” Lines from Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice: “The quality of mercy is not strain’d ... It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes.” • The St. George Community Dinner at the CEED Centre needs food and volunteers. If you can help, contact Bill at bill050351@gmail.com.

Heartbreak From: Christina Hofmarks, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: A struggle for health care (The News, Sept. 16). I’ll be honest, I was pretty ignorant about everything a family has to go through day to day when dealing with a disabled person, but I was absolutely distraught after reading this article, realizing the heartbreaking struggles the Nagy family has had to go through just to keep their family together and, first and foremost, Brianne in a stable, loving environment. Bill and Kelly are amazing, selfless people and all they are asking for is what is best for their daughter. She has been at Fletcher House for 14 years, this is a second home to her, where she feels comfortable and has others around her that personally know ‘Breezy’and how to care for her.

Osoyoos, the town that time forgot O

ne of the nice things about getting out of town is seeing other cities from an outsider’s eyes, unencumbered by details, facts and boring considerations such as history and reality – as was the case with a recent Commentary Phil Melnychuk trip to Osoyoos. Winding down into the heat bowl on the Crowsnest Highway, you’re struck by one thing – the sun shines here. Most of the time. It’s warm. It’s dry. Orchards produce fruit and wine, with only a fraction of the natural potential tapped, and generate mountains of cash, augmented by constant ringing of cash registers for the tourist trade. It’s one of the few deserts in Canada, and after spending a few hours there, you really wonder how we actually survive in the West Coast rainforest, mired in dark gloom and rain and fog 11 months of the year. It’s rarely gloomy here. Paxil profits must plunge. How can you get down when the sun soaks the earth yearround? Can’t we just move Metro Vancouver into the Okanagan Valley?

As an outsider, though, you’re also struck by what you don’t see. Given the place is a blast furnace of solar energy, you’d think photo-voltaic panels and solar-thermal panels boasting the latest in Chinese technology would carpet the landscape. In this desert town, if there are any, I couldn’t see them. Actually the only thing I could see was 1960s style hotels and motels filled with yahoo Albertans, revelling in some kind of a time warp. I half expected Elvis to zoom by in a 1957 Chevy convertible. And I did see lots of green grass next to Osoyoos Lake and wondered about the fertilizer flow and if the community knows about droughtresistant landscaping. It almost seems like the town time forgot. It could capitalize even more on what it has that the rest of the country doesn’t. Warmth. Sun. For most of the year. It could start with the highway from Osoyoos to Penticton. Put some solar-powered street lights, call it the solar highway. Come to think of it, the whole province should do likewise. I think there are some dusty villages in Africa who use more solar power than we do. It also makes you wonder about the natural wealth of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows and the assets we don’t know about that are evident to the

outsider. A recent trip to Whistler showed how we should do things. On the twisty Sea to Sky Highway, there are now bike lanes on both sides, allowing cyclists to ride the most beautiful highway in the world. Within two years, that Olympic highway project spawned the Gran Fondo bike race, a bonanza for any tourism business along the Vancouver-toWhistler route. From Maple Ridge’s western border (Pitt Meadows and Abbotsford already have done this), the Lougheed Highway is a no-brainer for a multiuse bike lane on both sides to prepare for the increasing numbers of electric bikes, scooters, motorized wheelchairs, skateboards, bicycles and motorized bicycles that will be on our streets. The shoulder’s already there. It just needs widening (to make it easier for me to pedal) and signs in a few places and a bit of money and you have 50 kilometres of bike lanes. It could serve as the backbone for the Experience the Fraser Project that calls for recreational trails from Hope to Vancouver. It’s just waiting for an outsider to tell us how to do it.

Hounds called in to look for missing cats by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter

E

ven in pelting rain that marks the onset of fall, Jed, the blood hound, is single-minded. He wants to work – sniff, sniff, sniff and track. Jed has been back to this Pitt Meadows neighbourhood at least six times since he was first called in to look for Sookie, a missing Bengal house cat. Jed’s owner, Al Maclellan of Pet Searchers Canada, is in the business of finding lost dogs and cats. The pair tracked Sookie’s scent to a culde-sac on 191B Avenue, off McMyn Road. Jed could smell her on the grass just outside a block of apartment, but then the scent disappears. “Either someone or something picked her up,” says Langelybased Maclellan, who was paid for an initial search by Sookie’s owner, but has been returning to the neighbourhood on his own dime because he’s sure the cat’s nearby. “There are no signs of predator attack. If any cat’s going to get away from a coyote, it’s a Bengal. They are very agile and have a wild instinct in them.” Maclellan grew up on a game farm in Ontario, where he learned to hunt and track with his father. It wasn’t until he lost his own dog that he realize he could perhaps use dogs to find lost pets. The recent finds listed on his website

Pet tracker Al Maclellan and his bloodhound Jed. include Jody, a Chihuahua, who escaped from a backyard in Cloverdale but was sniffed out by Jed in 20 minutes; Boo, a Persian cat missing for four days who was found in two hours; and Buck, a LabradorGerman Shepherd cross who was lost in Maple Ridge for two days but found by Jed in two hours. The finds listed don’t include the pets Maclellan has located, but who’ve met their demise in the jaws of a coyote, cougar or bob cat. Just recently, RCMP warned the public about cats being mutilated in Maple Ridge. “A lot of pet owners just want that closure,” says Maclellan, who also uses trail cameras, puts up weather-proof posters, scours free online listings and will even set up a trap to capture an

elusive pet. To most people, pets are family and Maclellan doesn’t mind getting dragged by his bloodhounds through

thick bush, muck, snow, up mountains and into marshes to find them. Sookie, who liked to stroll near her owners’ townhouse complex during the day, most likely scaled a fence and wandered on the side walk along McMyn Ave. before strolling into the cul-de-sac where her scent disappears. Maclellan was called

in five days after she went missing, on Aug. 27, and used Sookie’s bed to find her distinct scent. Tori Mansfield, who got Sookie as a gift for her birthday last year, isn’t ready to give up on her Bengal with piercing green eyes. She’s positive Sookie, who is quite the looker, has been stolen. “Life without Sookie has been tragic. Not knowing where she is or if she’s being treated OK breaks my heart,” says Mansfield. “We will never get another animal, nothing could replace her. I can’t even look at pictures of her I get too upset. I am hoping for a miracle that someone will be kind enough to bring her back to us.” • Contact Tori at 604-790-8939 or Petsearchers Canada at petseachers.webs.com if you find Sookie.

Smart meters ‘undemocratic, unwanted’ by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter Val MacDonald says B.C. Hydro’s plans to install Smart Meters are a dumb idea and wants Maple Ridge to join other B.C. municipalities in calling for a moratorium on the devices. Calling the devices a “threat our security and privacy, health and safety and our pocketbook,” MacDonald wants people to be able to choose what kind of meter will be installed in their home – wired or wireless. “Right now, there are alternatives available in the way of wired devices.

“At the very least, we’d like to have a wired meter be made available to people who choose to have a wireless model.” She points out that while there are many arguments showing the safety of smart meters, there are just as many that raise questions about their safety. While MacDonald herself uses a cellphone for business, she doesn’t have a microwave oven or WiFi in her house. “I have a business so I have to have a cellphone.” In her presentation to council last week, MacDonald says wireless information is insecure and can be hacked, while

she says in Ontario the meters have increased energy use. “This radiation is unwanted and these meters are non-consensual. It’s undemocratic.” She wanted council to write to B.C. Health Minister Mike de Jong, requesting the moratorium. Individual homeowners who don’t want their meters replaced can call B.C. Hydro and ask to be placed on the delay-install list. B.C. Hydro has already started the conversion process and plans on completing it by December 2012. The conversion program will cost $930 million, but is expected to save $70 million, mainly

through reduced energy theft, over three years. B.C. Hydro says the meters are active for about a total of a minute per day and says the exposure to a smart meter over its 20-year lifespan is equivalent to a 30-minute cellphone call. Data encryption will be used to ensure security. MacDonald says Victoria, Langley and Nanaimo, as well as smaller municipalities around B.C., have already asked for the moratorium, however, Maple Ridge will wait until more information is available following the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention this weekend.

Council refuses fill request again Family wants to improve drainage, build house by Phil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter All Holly Long and her family want is to follow the recommendations of a hydrologist and spread gravel on their east Maple Ridge property, build a new house and barn so stormwater runs back into a ditch and soaks back into the aquifer. But Maple Ridge council disagrees and recently nixed sending an application to the Agricultural Land Commission to haul 47,305 cubic metres of structural fill on to Long’s fourhectare lot at 28487 – 108th Ave. And what bothers Long just as much is that council made its decision without seeing the hydrologist’s report. The family wants to build a new home, garage and farmhand residence and a barn on the property. They’re selling their property in Mission where they also raise a few cattle and want to continue the operation at their new residence. To improve drainage and allow construction of a home with a basement and a smaller footprint and make it easier to install geothermal heating, they want to raise the elevation on which the buildings will sit as well as a portion of the land

around the buildings. However, the District of Maple Ridge only wants to allow the elevation raised under the immediate footprint of the new buildings. According to a district staff report, despite a reduction in the proposed amount of fill to be hauled, the application still should be denied, and says that the reduced amount of 34,983 cubic metres across a quarter of the site is still more than needed for construction of the buildings. Long says she hasn’t received any stop-work orders from the district but doesn’t know what to do now and has been told by the Agricultural Land Commission to get an agrologist’s report. “It’s taking us months and a lot of money to work between the agencies.” An earlier district report said stop-work orders were placed on the property, but that has since been corrected and verbal notification only was given, with the work being stopped as a result. In their own report to council, the family points out traffic already uses the road, both industrial and residential. She also points out that as owners of AT&H Industries, they have the expertise for hauling the gravel and bringing it on to the site safely. While a district staff report

also says residents are worried about the effects on their water wells, a hydrology report commissioned by the owners says the sediment control plan is adequate and adds that there will be enough groundwater to supply a deep well on site, although the report doesn’t specifically address effects on the aquifer. District staff also note that the report doesn’t address soil compaction and how that might affect the underground water supply and suggests that a properly designed stormwater management system would achieve the same effect without hauling large volumes of gravel.

“It’s taking us months and a lot of money to work between the agencies.” Holly Long

Long pointed out that initially, the family proposed just bringing in fill for beneath the footprint of the buildings but were told by the district to get a report, which led to the expanded footprint. The ALC also says that fill hauled in for buildings shouldn’t exceed .2 ha while the area that will be raised by the filling is 1.36 ha.

New B.C. Hydro building being built on 256th St. B.C. Hydro crews will be able to respond to emergencies more quickly and store their material and equipment more easily when a 25,000-sq.-foot building at the north end of

256th Street in Maple Ridge’s industrial area is complete. Once finished in early 2013, the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building will give Hydro

crews a more permanent, spacious building to serve as a base for crews in the area. Currently, B.C. Hydro uses a temporary building located at its substation on 216th Street and

Dewdney Trunk Road. But space there is limited and the new building will allow more manpower and material, easier access and better response during power emergen-

cies. A few years after the building opens, about 15 to 17 people should be based at the 256th Street location, said regional manager for substations Wayne Martell.

“We need to have this new facility there.” Some of the green features of the building: • using rainwater from the roof to use for toilet and urinal flushing; • solar collectors capture heat from the sun to be used for the radiant heating and domes-

tic hot water; • green roof, with vegetation to mitigate building heat loss and gain as well as to improve the longevity of the roofing membrane; • building will last 50-plus years and remain functional following a seismic or other natural disaster event.

Focus on victims, justice system Olson from front Olson preyed on victims across the Lower Mainland and dumped bodies in remote areas from Chilliwack to Whistler. The first victim, 12-year-old Christine Weller, was abducted near her Surrey home while riding her bike in November of 1980. Her body was found on Christmas Day, strangled and stabbed. Three others were also picked up in Surrey – 13-year-old Colleen Daignault, 16-year-old Sandra Lynn Wolfsteiner and nine-year-old Simon Partington. Daryn Johnsrude, 16, Judy Kozma, 14, and Raymond King Jr., 15, all vanished from New Westminster. Ada Anita Court, 13, and Sigrun Arnd, 18, were picked up in Coquitlam. Louise Chartand, 17, was picked up walking in Maple Ridge and Terry Lyn Carson, 15, was found strangled in Chilliwack. The 1982 deal securing Olson’s guilty plea – and sparing families of his victims the pain of a long trial – included a controversial $100,000 trust fund payment to his wife and infant son. Olson led police to the undiscovered bodies of his victims. Outraged families felt Olson profited from his crimes. Despite being incarcerated, Olson didn’t disappear from the spotlight. He repeatedly applied for parole and was denied each of the three times - the last denial in 2010. King blames the media for giving Olson a platform and turning him into a “folk hero.” “I would hope people make an effort to remember all 11 of those kids who died,” King said. “I don’t understand why such a big hoopla is being made of the fact that he’s got cancer. This is a man who is not worth the time it takes to say his name. The focus should be on the failure of the justice system.” – with files from Jeff Nagel

Coun. Walters also wins award Becker from front Despite his political leanings, Becker stresses he can work with the NDP, should that party form government, but reckons the B.C. Liberals will be in power at least until the spring of 2013 – or a good majority of the next three-year municipal term. “If Adrian Dix wants to come golf in beautiful Pitt Meadows, I’d be happy to sling him a beer and feed him a hot dog or two,” Becker said. The press release also noted that Becker has recently limited his “other civic interests” to actively pursue the mayor’s position. He resigned as president of the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows B.C. Liberal riding association last week and also stepped down as chair of the Meadowridge School board or directors. He’s also launched a campaign website that displays catchy slogans, such as “Becker Is Better,” and endorsements, including one from Conservative MP Mark Strahl. Furthermore, Becker

alone,” said Becker. “That’s what it’s for, so I can listen to people.” The premier and other politicians won’t be joining Becker on the campaign trail. “That would be over top,” he said. Coun. Deb Walters, who is also seeking

the mayor’s seat, isn’t “panicked” by Becker’s endorsements and political connections. City council was informed this past week that Walters will be presented with a Local Government Leadership Academy certificate at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities conference next week. “The writ doesn’t get dropped till Oct. 4,” Walters said, indicating that she too will be launching a website soon that will include endorsements from “upstanding citizens from Pitt Meadows, not outside.” “The people of Pitt Meadows like to be spoken to and they like to know that they’ve been heard and I think that’s something that I do. I am pleased with the support” Gary Paller, a Pitt Meadows resident who has co-ordinated special effects in the film and television industry since the early 1980s, is the third declared candidate for the mayor’s position. Nominations close on Oct. 14 at 4 p.m. The election will be held on Nov. 19.

ability to communicate with other people or to have normal social interaction. According to the Autism Canada Foundation, people with autism have impaired social skills and relationships, deďŹ cits in communication and language, a dependence on routine. They can also have a narrow range of interests and

behavior issues. However, 26-year-old Jacynthe has got the better of her disability and will be receiving a Community Achievement award at the second annual International Naturally Autistic People Awards and Convention this weekend in North Vancouver. This award is one of 11 being given out to

autistic individuals and organizations nominated from eight countries around the world. Jacynthe is among nominees from Canada, the U.S., India, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Scotland and Germany. She is one of two Canadians to receive an award. “She’s come so far and she’s out there in our

geographical community, visible and helping�, said her mother, Laurie Geschke. “She is very active in the autistic community. She helps there by mentoring and modeling� Jacynthe works for ANCA Consulting, a company that educates autistic people, their families and the community about the disorder

Sister city

Property rezoned

The City of Pitt Meadows now has a sibling in Korea. Council directed the mayor to sign a certificate Tuesday, officially recognizing Gapyeunggun as a sister city. Located in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, Gapyeong was the scene of the Battle of Kapyong, a major clash during the Korean War. The Korea Veterans Association pitched the idea to council in November to recognize the contribution of Canadian Armed Forces during the Korean war. Gapyeong already has two sister cities – Gangnam-gu, South Korea and Cedar City, Utah. It will be the first time Pitt Meadows has twinned with another city. Eight municipalities in Metro Vancouver do not have a sister or twinning relationship with another city. The others include Delta, North Vancouver, Anmore, Bowen Island, Langley City, Lions Bay, Port Coquitlam, and West Vancouver. New Westminster and Vancouver have the most sister cities, at five each.

A rezoning application that will see another mixed-use development go up along Harris Road in Pitt Meadows got third reading at city council on Tuesday. The property at 12409 Harris Road will be rezoned to CD-30 to permit the construction of a four-storey apartment building with 42 residential units, and approximately 2,000 square feet of ground level commercial space. The city initially received a rezoning application for the property in February 2009 after the original Chives Restaurant property was merged with an unused portion of Telus property. Since that time, city staff has been working with the applicant to come up with an attractive building design that would provide residential density, commercial space and sufficient parking – all on a relatively narrow lot.

Piano & Theory Lessons

Pitt Meadows taxpayers are willing to shell out a little extra money for more recreation facilities in the city, including an indoor pool. Although the appetite for additional facilities and programs has decreased since 2008, a parks and recreation survey conducted in May found that 24 per cent of people polled still want more services. A quarter of them want a new indoor swimming pool, and 70 per cent would pay additional taxes for it. Another 27 per cent are willing to pay up to $20 or more than $40 a year, while a larger portion – 37 per cent – would between $20 and $40 per year. Usage of parks, recreation facilities or recreation programs has remained steady or slightly increased since the last survey. Households using recreation facilities have increased to 88 per cent from 85 per cent in 2008. Residents are also satisfied with the quality and range of parks and recreation facilities, with 83 per cent of those surveyed rating the services as “very good.”

Finding a place with same rhythm T

his is a tale of two aunts and their recent experiences as they have found themselves with no options but to go into a fullcare home. It’s an interesting story because it contains many of the complicated issues that are part of a family’s decision-making process when change is inevitable. The first aunt was 102 years old when her foot got tangled up in her sheet as she got out of bed and she took a big tumble, shattering her hip so badly that she would be forever confined to a wheelchair, unable to get herself in or out of her chair for any reason. Prior to the accident, she had been widowed for about six years and lived in her own home, by choice, for eight months of the year, spending the four harshest winter months in her son’s home. She liked her independence and was quite capable of looking after herself. Her days were spent keeping the fire in her wood stove going and talking to others on the phone. She was very social, although she didn’t get out much unless someone else took her.

she takes it all in stride and is as happy if not happier, as she was in her own home. The second aunt, 86 years old, recently had a knee operation, which resulted in some complications that made it impossible to return to the two-storey house of her daughter, where she had been living for the last couple of years. She has been widowed for almost 40 years and has lived a very independent lifestyle up to about two years ago, when her mobility made it easier for the family to take her in than constantly be going between residences. The difficulty for her is that the care facility runs on a very different schedule than she does. For much of her life she has preferred to stay up very late at night and sleep much of the day, but that is

City safer because of fire technicians Unionized positions are being credited for a drop in calls by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

Fire safety technician Mike Larsson practises with the jaws of life on a donated car in the parking lot of the Pitt Meadows fire department.

The Pitt Meadows Fire Department credits the hiring of two unionized firefighters for making the city safer, citing their addition for a drop in calls involving burn-

ing complaints and false alarms. Responsible for fire prevention, education and maintaining equipment, the fire safety technicians have taken those tasks away from the department’s paid on-call volunteers. “The volunteers can

now focus the time they spend away from their families on calls and training,” said fire chief Don Jolley. The first fire safety tech was hired in the summer of 2009 and the second in fall 2010. Both work during business hours Monday to Friday. “They add to our contingent of firefighters during the weekdays when we typically have the lowest number of volunteers available because most of them are at work,” said Jolley. The technicians have helped educate farmers about burning and residents about the risk of grass fires, leading to a significant drop in those calls. Jolley projects the city should log 25 burning complaints this year, compared to 60 in 2010. The department has also seen a 30 per cent increase in applications for burning permits, which shows that people are ready to comply with the rules, despite the associated costs. The technicians have also freed up assistant chief Brad Perrie, who used to handle education, but now has more

time to conducted inspections. “What we are finding is [Perrie] has been able to deal with a lot of issues that were compounding. Now our false alarms are down and fires are down in buildings. The public is acting safer,” Jolley said. “The community is safer and that’s always a positive thing.” In a recent report to city council, Jolley noted the department’s transition from a volunteer model to a paid oncall model in January has been seamless. Previously, an annual grant of $210,000 was paid by the city to volunteer firefighters, who divided it up themselves, according to hours worked. The paid on-call model eliminated the grant and firefighters who attend a call or training are now paid a wage hourly. It meant a $50,000 increase to the department’s million-dollar budget. “There have been next to no differences internally and outwardly,” Jolley said. “To the public, there has been absolutely no difference.”

Earthquake drill in U.S., New Zealand, B.C. The force of nature keeps making itself apparent. A jolt here. A tremor there. A 6.4 magnitude earthquake off Vancouver Island Sept. 9, an apocalyptic earthquake in Japan six months ago. With shaking going on all over, more people will pay attention to the B.C. Shakeout drill this Oct. 20 at exactly 10:20 a.m. This time, they’ll join millions of others on the U.S. West Coast and New Zealand, all part of the Ring of Fire, and take part in the Drop, Cover and Hold-On drill that will increase chances of surviving the big one. The drill takes only a minute and offers residents, businesses and agencies the opportunity to practise the recommended safety technique of dropping down beneath a table or chair and holding on to that while the shaking is going on. Running outside or standing beneath a doorway aren’t recommended. While it takes only minutes, people are encouraged to register for the drill by visiting www. shakeoutbc.ca or e-mailing info@shakeoutbc.ca. According to the Shakeout B.C. organizing committee, B.C. has one of the most active seismic faults in the world and has about 1,200 quakes a year. People also are encouraged to review their emergency plans and supplies should a quake hit. With possible disruption of modern conveniences, people should have water and food and supplies on hand to last a few days following the quake. A Shake Out drill already took place in January, but the date now has been changed to October so it coincides with drills in other countries. District of Maple Ridge staff will be participating in the Shake Out drill and encourage the public to do the same. The City of Pitt Meadows is not joining in the Shakeout drill because it had one in January. However, it will resume the drill next October 2012.

THE NEWS/home&gardening Combinations to conceal bulb leaves E

ach spring, a great many gardeners are upset with withering daffodil and tulip leaves that looked unsightly for such a long period of time. What really worries me, however, are the numerous comments folks have made about not Gardening planting bulbs because Brian Minter of their sloppy foliage that can spoil the appearance of an otherwise neat and tidy garden. It would be a shame for any garden to lose these vibrant spring colours, simply because of a few leaves, when there are many ways to overcome the problem. The most obvious solution is to group bulb plantings in pockets where they can make their wonderful display and then die back without disrupting the entire garden. If you can camouflage them among other plants, so much the better. Secondly, by adding copious amounts of sand when you plant the bulbs, they will not only naturalize more easily, but will also die back more quickly. The most creative and effective way to enhance a display of spring bulbs is to plant them in combination with shrubs. With a little imagination, you can come up with great combinations that give your garden a new look, conceal dying foliage and make certain locations work overtime to keep that colour coming. Flowering shrubs are a natural for companion planting with bulbs. I’ve often mentioned the combination of miniature blue Iris reticulata with the ‘Buttercup’ winter hazel (Corylopsis pauciflora), but also try fragrant Daphne mezereum with the crocus ‘Remembrance’. The lavender tones work magic together. Winter heather is a natural for bulb combinations because it flowers from November until late April, and then it flushes out with lots of new growth to screen bulb foliage. Try combining it with some miniature narcissus, like ‘Minnow’, ‘Hawera’ and ‘Jack Snipe’. Early blooming ‘Star Magnolias’ (Magnolia stellata) could be greatly enhanced with an underplanting of white narcissus like ‘Ice Follies’. When the leaves flush out on the magnolia, they would nicely conceal the narcissus leaves.

White spiraeas offer all sorts of opportunities with red tulips. Larger magnolias should not be left out, either. ‘Saucer Magnolias’ (M. soulangiana), that often lose their big blossoms prematurely due to heavy spring winds or rains, would be greatly enhanced by an underplanting of beautiful salmon ‘Angelique’ tulips. Flowering quince looks spectacular in any spring garden, but a surrounding planting of early double tulips would be a real classy touch. Try ‘Peach Blossom’ around the whites and pinks and the yellow ‘Monte Carlo’ around the orange and scarlet varieties. White spiraeas offer all sorts of opportunities with red tulips. Spiraea thunbergii would be a knockout with the early tulip, ‘Red Emperor’. The mid-season ‘Snow Mound’ (S. nipponica tosaensis) would look great with red ‘Darwin’ tulips, and the late-flowering ‘Bridal Wreath’ spirea (S. arquta) would

be nice combined with a red lily-flowering tulip. Spiraeas are great for covering up tulip foliage. Don’t forget about broad-leafed plants, either. One of the most overlooked sun- or shade-loving plants is the ‘Oregon Grape’ (Mahonia aquifolium). Its yellow flowers and green holly-like foliage would combine beautifully with the soft yellow narcissus ‘Carlton’. Euonymus ‘Emerald n’ Gold’ and white/ green ‘Gaiety’ provide a wonderful opportunity for tulip planting. Bright coloured early single or trumpet tulips could be underplanted for a delightful effect each spring. If the new growth was left untrimmed, it would cover dying tulip foliage, and then both could be pruned at once to save time. Long-blooming, low-growing shrubs like potentillas and dwarf spiraeas offer tremendous potential for daffodil and tulip

plantings. The red, white, orange and pink blossoms that begin in late April can provide a neat contrast for late flowering varieties of bulbs, or the green foliage can offer a backdrop, then cover for the flowers and leaves. Hostas and ferns also provide good foliage cover for daffodil and tulip leaves in areas with morning or dappled sunshine. Frankly, the potential for fabulous combinations is unlimited. This fall, take a new look at the opportunities for using your tulip and narcissus bulbs to enhance your existing trees and shrubs. In doing so, you not only create a new dimension in colour schemes, you can also conceal the foliage that too often can spoil the fresh look of your spring gardens.

Before that happens, it would be very wise for everyone to get their act in order. The sobering state of the economy calls for a refocus of priorities and values. Jesus spoke of this in the gospel of Matthew: “Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or – worse! – stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars. It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being ...

proach the Rivers Day celebration at the Allco fish hatchery on Sept. 25, it seems a good time to remember our history with Looking Back this glorious Val Patenaude community asset. The human relationship with the Alouette River began with Katzie First Nation. As European settlers began to arrive, and then people of other nations, they soon found the Alouette an important resource for three areas of life – food, work and play. Fish were the food provided by the Alouette. According to Katzie history, there were several varieties of salmon, trout and steelhead that could be netted or speared. As a dietary supplement or staple, the Alouette was a reliable source of fish until it was compromised by the construction of the dam in 1926. Claude Holt, who lived along the river and fished every day, recorded his dismay in his diary as the muddiness of the water increased and his success at fishing fell away. Through the efforts of the Alouette River Management Society and the hatchery run by B.C. Corrections, some of the deleterious effects of the dam were reversed in the mid-1990s, and today some of the salmon runs have been re-established. For the logging industry, the Alouette provided a means to get forest products down to the Fraser River, where they could be distributed to sawmills and shingle mills. Shingle bolts and full logs would be rolled into

Maple Ridge Museum

Swimmers on the rocks at Davidson’s Pool in the 1940s. In the background is the Cross house. the river in the hope that they would eventually float down to the lower reaches, where they could be boomed for transport to the mills. The river – even undammed – usually didn’t have enough water in it to move the larger logs, so the loggers waited for river-filling rainstorms to move their product. The side effect was that large logs combined with rampaging water served to remove one or more of the small community’s bridges with every storm. Council notes from the 1890s are full of complaints from residents demanding that the loggers pay for bridge replacement rather than the poor taxpayer. Last, but not least, the Alouette has been a magnet for fair weather recreation since settlement began. The best swimming in the district was to be found at Davidson’s Pool. The pool and the large rock on the south side of it have an important place in Katzie history, too. When the geographic features of what we call Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows were being

set in place, a powerful being named Khaals turned a onelegged fisherman into that very rock so that he could guard the stream and ensure that Katzie people treated the fish and the river with respect. The pool has had more than one name, usually taken from the nearest landowner. First it was Smedley’s pool, then Davidson’s Pool. It was considered so important as the best swimming hole in the district that in 1934 in the middle of the Depression, municipal council set aside funds to provide a road access to the pool. The adjacent ‘Hot Rocks’ were equally popular and could be gotten to via the Cross property where the family had built numerous small cabins to attract summer tourists from the big city. So join us at Rivers Day, when the museum will have more displays on the history of the Alouette, and remember to always treat the river with respect – that rock is watching. Val Patenaude is director of the Maple Ridge Museum.

DiNicolo named player of the week staff reporter Maple Ridge’s Anthony DiNicolo was named Great Northwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week thanks to his strong defensive play last week for the Simon Fraser University Clan against Grand Canyon. DiNicolo, a senior engineering student at SFU, helped the Clan to a pair shut-outs last week as they defeated the GCU Antelopes on Sept. 11, before beating the Trinity Lutheran ColDiNicolo lege Eagles 6-0. “Anthony was fantastic for us at the back this past week,” said head coach Alan Koch. “He helped settle our back four in the final thirty minutes against Grand Canyon and helped preserve a big victory. He has grown into a silent leader and has started off his senior year full of confidence.” DiNicolo is coming off a stellar junior campaign that saw him named an Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), in addition to being named to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Academic Team thanks to his 3.49 GPA. DiNicolo was a critical member of last season’s 19-2-0 Clan team, and has started all five SFU games this season, helping the team to a 5-0 record, with only one goal against.

Mike Lewandowski (left) and Malcolm Williams (right) are both playing for the UBC Thunderbirds this year along with fellow Pitt product Doug Plumb.

Pitt trio leads UBC Thunderbirds by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter University of B.C. Thunderbirds men’s basketball team might think about changing its name to the Marauders given how many former Pitt Meadows secondary students are playing for the team. This season there are three Pitt products playing for the T-Birds, with fifthyear player Dog Plumb and sophomore Mike Lewandowski joined by freshman Malcolm Williams. Pitt Meadows basketball coach Rich Goulet said the trio rank among some of the best to have played at the high school, and handling the transition to university basketball quite nicely. “Mike is just so big, and Malcolm looked very good for a freshman,” said Goulet, who has travelled out to UBC to see his ex-players play twice so far this year. “I expect all three could have very good seasons this year.” Doug Plumb was a student at Pitt Meadows Grade 8 and 9 before moving to Minnesota. After a stint

with the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades, Plumb joined the Thunderbirds last season. At six-foot-four, Plumb will be one of the Thunderbirds starting guards this season. “He’s a very good athlete, a very accomplished player,” says Goulet. Lewandowski helped lead the Marauders to a fourth-place finish at provincials in his senior season two years ago. There he played along side Williams, both of whom will no doubt play big roles in the future of the Thunderbirds. While the six-foot-seven Lewandowski has struggled with knee injuries over the past few years, Goulet says he looks be playing in good health, and it shows. “He’s learning to be a lot more aggressive, and that’s good,” he said. Williams, meanwhile, is showing steady improvement, “He was our king last year,” said Goulet of Williams. “If there was a way to multiply him or get him even more minutes, we would have done it.” The trio of Marauders played a big role in the Thunderbirds recent

preseason series with the Santa Clara Broncos of the NCAA’s first division, Steve Nash’s alma mater. On Sept. 8, the Thunderbirds beat the Broncos 98-85 in overtime, with Plumb picking up 16 points. The T-Birds didn’t fare as well in the rematch on Sept. 11, however. UBC opened the game on a 15-0 run, powered by Plumb, who finished the first quarter with nine points. “We were being really aggressive and we really dictating the tempo of the Plumb game on offence and defence,” said Plumb. “I felt we were the ones making scrappy plays and hustling after the loose balls, but as the game progressed, it kind of switched, where they were outworking us.” Santa Clara slowly fought their way back, narrowing the gap to just 21-14. The Broncos continued their good play into the second and closed to within one just before halftime. Plumb responded with a coast-to-coast layup to end the half

at 35-32 in favour of UBC. The two teams kept the game close in the third. The score was tied on five occasions and the lead changed hands three times. But in the fourth quarter, UBC couldn’t muster a consistent offensive threat and despite keeping Santa Clara within striking distance, UBC never saw the lead in the final period. “I thought it was a very, very educational game for us,” said UBC head coach Kevin Hanson. “Now they see what they really have to work on, getting a shot off a little bit quicker to defending a little bit more aggressively.” Hanson said that’s especially true with his young recruits, like Lewandowski and Williams. “The minutes they played against the NCAA Division 1 will help them this year, but it will really help them in years three, four and five, so that bodes well for the future,” he said.

If your chair has no low back support, then either ďŹ nd one that does, or use something to substitute, such as a pillow or towel placed in the small of the back while you sit.

Many of these solutions are simple and practical and can make a big difference over the course of a day.

TransLink eyes big fare hikes in 2013 We’d like to know you better.

Details of increase to be determined: officials

At the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows News we always put our readers first. That way we keep you informed and connected with your community. We’d like you to assist our efforts by answering 12 simple questions about what’s important to you.

by J eff Nage l Black Press Regular transit riders better brace for a big jump in fares in the spring of 2013. TransLink intends to seek approval next year for an average fare increase of 12.5 per cent. TransLink’s Moving Forward financial plan shows base fares are to remain frozen while monthly pass prices would jump 24 per cent in 2013. But TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the exact increases in each category are yet to be determined. Cash fares may go up that year, he said, and numbers in the plan showing a three-zone pass, for example, rising from $151 to $187.20 may end up less than shown. “It won’t likely all go on the passholders,” he said. “How that fare revenue is actually going to be generated will be the subject of consultations next year.” He said the numbers were included for accounting purposes only to demonstrate the revenue TransLink needs to raise in future years. Another big factor in the future of transit fares is that TransLink’s Compass smart cards arrive in 2013. “We’re going through a fare review right now to see how the fare structure will eventually roll out,” Hardie said.

TransLink intends to seek approval next year for an average fare increase of 12.5 per cent. curately by distance or time travelled. TransLink Commissioner Martin Crilly, whose office vets fare increases, said it’s too early to say whether he will approve a major fare hike for 2013. “It’s a substantial increase,” he told Metro Vancouver mayors last week, noting 12.5 per cent is far above inflation. “We will want to satisfy ourselves the increase is justified and can’t be deferred and not reduced in amount.” More modest fare increases for inflation are also scheduled for 2016 and 2019.

Some mayors questioned whether the 2013 hike is too much given the region has high fares already relative to some other transit systems. TransLink estimates the 12 per cent fare hike in 2013 will only result in a loss of two per cent of revenue from riders refusing to pay that much more, leaving a net fare revenue gain of at least 10 per cent. TransLink projections show its fare revenue would climb from $421 million now to $517 million in 2013, in part through further gains in ridership. Crilly was giving the

region’s Mayors Council on Transportation his analysis of TransLink’s proposed plans to raise revenue for future expansion. One big cost driver Crilly flagged was TransLink’s plan to replace buses with more expensive diesel-electric hybrid models. But he found overall the plans are “not unreasonable” and would leave TransLink financially sustainable. He noted the transportation authority has a history of failing to actually spend all the capital money it promises to after new revenue increases are granted.

The Compass card will initially be designed to mirror the existing fare structure – including the current three zones – to ensure all systems are working correctly. Later, Hardie said, TransLink will redesign its fares “in a way that distributes the costs differently than they are right now.” Potential options include the elimination of fare zones in favour of charging more ac-

Push to add recycling deposits to milk heavy a burden on lowincome families. But advocates say there’s no reason milk shouldn’t be included along with deposit fees charged on most other

PUBLIC AUCTION

ready-to-drink beverage bottles and cans. Metro’s waste committee has previously supported the idea, but decided Sept. 14 to mount a more public campaign for milk deposits. “Somebody’s got to stand up to the lobbyists of the industry,” Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said, adding past claims that deposits hurt families “don’t hold water” or recognize environmental damage from unrecycled containers. “We know what it’s costing us to dispose of these goods in the garbage.” A voluntary milk container recycling program by Encorp has return rates of less than 10 per cent with no depositrefund system. In contrast, the recov-

ery rate is 80 per cent for all other containers where deposits are charged and refunded. B.C. Bottle Depot Association executive director Corinne Atwood pointed to Alberta,

which in 2009 introduced deposits of 10 or 25 cents on milk containers, depending on size. Milk carton recycling rates there have since climbed from 22.5 to 61 per cent, she said, and 71

per cent of plastic milk jugs are now returned, up from 61 per cent. The dairy industry reported no drop in sales, while Alberta cities saw curbside pickup and waste-handling costs drop. Atwood argues the issue is about more than milk containers. The provincial government has ordered industry-led recycling programs to expand to cover all packaging by 2014. That likely means milk containers will be collected through whatever overhauled blue box system emerges. Atwood thinks big beverage companies – represented by Encorp – will try to eliminate all existing refundable deposits on various bottles and containers and have them also directed through the expanded packaging pickup system. Container recycling fees – a few extra cents already charged in addition to deposits on most bottles – would likely go up if deposits are eliminated, she said. And she expects the same non-refundable recycling fees will be added to milk to help pay for pickup. Atwood argued it would be better to add a deposit to milk that consumers get back if they recycle than to end up with industry imposing its own added fee that isn’t refunded and may not even be transparently shown on the bill of sale. Encorp spokesman Malcolm Harvie denied the organization wants to dismantle the existing deposit system or that it has taken any position on how milk containers should be handled. He said many milk cartons and jugs are recycled through other methods – not just through depots – and the overall recovery rate may be more than 70 per cent.
