Police sued over officer misconduct

Riding with remote in hand!

Constable has already been dismissed after lengthy Police Act investigation BY


A former North Delta resident launched a lawsuit this week against the Delta Police Department, a former officer, the police chief and the Corporation of Delta alleging sexual misconduct by the officer after a domestic dispute call. In court documents, Tori Jones says she called 911 on July 26, 2010 after having marital problems and arguments with her common-law husband, Josh Van Polanen Petel. Former constable Robert Wesley Johnston was one of three officers to respond to the call. While the investigation into the domestic dispute did not lead to

an arrest or any charges, at the time officers removed Petel from the residence and told him to stay away for the night. Jones alleges Johnston gave her his name, personal cell phone number and Delta police email address. She says he told her that if she had any more problems with Petel she should call him and he would personally deal with him. The lawsuit alleges that after Johnston left Jones’ residence he used the computer in his police cruiser to access records on the couple. The next day, at Johnston’s urging, Jones went to Surrey provincial court to secure interim custody of her and Petel’s son and to See LAWSUIT page 3

Barn raising set for Kirkland More than 100 volunteers needed next Sunday to help erect restored century-old barn on Arthur Drive site BY


Delta is getting set for a good old-fashioned barn raising. On Sunday, Aug. 19, the Harris Barn will be reassembled at its new home at Hawthorne Grove Park, also known as the Kirkland House site, on Ladner’s Arthur Drive. Earlier this year, civic politicians voted to enter into an agreement with the property owner to acquire and relocate the Harris Barn, which was formerly located in the 5500-block of 64th Street. The barn is being refurbished and will be used as a community gathering space and stand as a tribute to the area’s agricultural heritage. Once complete, the main floor will have washrooms, a kitchen, handicapped lift and a stairwell leading to the U-shaped mezzanine level. The main floor will be able to accommodate up to 275 people while the second floor will have space for another 200. In all, the barn will have about 8,000-square-feet of useable space. Originally 5,000 square feet, the barn, constructed in 1900 and relocated in 1940, is recognized as one of Delta’s historical agricultural assets. The owner applied to tear it down in order to construct a new home on the site. Fujiko Kinjo then agreed to sell the barn, in exchange for 80 sheets of plywood, water service to her property and the building permit

The restored Harris Barn will offer about 8,000-square-feet of public space on two floors once it’s been relocated to the Kirkland House grounds. fees for her new home waived, which added up to less than $8,500. The municipality commissioned Macdonald & Lawrence Timber Framing Ltd. to relocate and refurbish the barn at a cost of $362,200. The Vancouver Island company has extensive experience with restoring heritage structures. Company principals Gordon Macdonald and Steve Lawrence both worked for Carpenter Oak & Woodland Co. Ltd. in the UK for more than 10 years where they led many projects and helped conserve some of Britain’s architec-

LAWSUIT from page 1 get a temporary 10-day restraining order against Petel, which barred him from seeing Jones and their son during that time. Two days later, Jones and Johnston began communicating by phone and text. According to court documents, Jones wanted to thank the officer for his assistance and advice but at Johnston’s behest the communications became sexual in nature. On July 31, while Johnston was on-duty and in uniform, he met Jones in the underground parking lot at the Superstore on Scott Road at 82nd Avenue. “Johnston committed a sexual assault and battery on Tori, the particulars of

which will be provided upon request,” the suit states. “Tori then left for work. About one hour later, Johnston again searched Tori’s name on the [police] databases on his Delta police cruiser.” The lawsuit outlines several other alleged instances of Johnston committing sexual assault and battery on Jones, including one on Aug. 1, 2010 at the Delta Police K9 office on Annacis Island where he arranged to have another officer stand guard across the street to alert him if anyone approached the office. The lawsuit alleges the officer let Jones read confidential files and “played a game in which he asked

tural treasures, including Windsor Castle. The company has been working to re-establish the framework to ensure it meets current standards. The re-assembly process will begin Aug. 19 with the barn raising. The barn raising gives the community a chance to get directly involved with the process. About 100 to 150 volunteers will be needed to help raise the two end frames of the barn into place. The process requires three teams of people: The lifting team, which will consist of 70 people, will

be responsible for the initial deadlift of the side of the barn. Once that is complete, the pike pole team, which will be made up of 40 individuals, will take over and continue pushing up the side of the barn. Lastly, two groups of 20 will make up the rope tackle teams. Those groups will take over the full lifting of the side. People wishing to take part in the lifting and poke pole teams should be in good physical condition and be able to lift 50 pounds. The rope tackle team is open to all ages, however children must be accompanied by an adult.

For many, taking part in the barn raising will be a once in a lifetime event. The practice was commonly used in the 18th and 19th centuries when a community would come together to help assemble a neighbour’s barn. The event will also include a number of other

events, including entertainment, children’s activities, a chicken barbecue, a live and silent auction, and a dedication ceremony once the frame is erected. Registration to volunteer for one of the barn raising teams runs from 1 to 2 p.m. and the festivities will continue until 6 p.m.

According to the notice of civil claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court this week, Johnston went on vacation late that summer. While he was away, Jones texted him to say she did not want to see him anymore; he did not respond and she never heard from him again. Once Petel returned to the couple’s home, Jones told him what happened. A complaint against Johnston was filed on Oct. 13, 2010. Five days later he was suspended with pay while

Rotarians continue efforts to rid shoreline of invasive weed that’s choking eco-system JESSICA KERR

Volunteers with the Ladner Rotary Club are out again this summer continuing the war against an invasive noxious weed. Don Burkett and several other service club members have been out in Boundary Bay armed with shovels in an attempt to eradicate spartina anglica from the area. The weed, a species of cordgrass, was introduced in the British Isles as a means of erosion control. It’s considered noxious because it is so pervasive and as it spreads it has the ability to take over native plants and smother natural eco-systems, such as the inter-tidal area in Boundary Bay. The plant’s dense root system binds the soil and the tall grass increases silt deposits, making it effective in erosion control, however, as the weed takes over an area it prevents birds and other natural species from feeding. Essentially it has the


Work parties from the Ladner Rotary Club continue to remove spartina anglica from the Boundary Bay foreshore. There could be as many as 15,000 plants in the area. potential to convert a wetland into a dry land and make the area inhospitable to salmon and other invertebrate. The noxious weed is monitored by Delta staff and the B.C. Spartina

Working Group, a consortium of conservation organizations and government agencies that now includes the Ladner Rotary Club. Spartina plants are identified, flagged and then removed by volunteers or

staff. Despite efforts to remove as many plants as possible, the weed is spreading, said Burkett. Last year, around 2,00 plants were identified and removed. This year, 9,600

plants have been flagged. Burkett said the total number of spartina plants in the area is probably closer to 15,000 as more are discovered during the removal process. The dramatic increase in plants is most likely due to a large number of seeds getting blown across the shoreline. “I look at this as a bit of a battleground,” Burkett said. Burkett and his team of 15 or so volunteers are out two to four times a week digging up spartina; he is always looking for more willing volunteers. So far this season, the team has cleared the shore area between 104th and 72nd streets and plans to move toward 64th Street next. Residents that spot what they suspect is spartina, or those that want to volunteer to help with removal efforts, are encouraged to contact Delta’s office of climate action and environment at 604-946-3253 or via e-mail at cae@corp.

Delta sexual assault suspect pleads guilty BY




Tuesday night’s thunder and lightning storm provided a great light show. A reader captured this photo near the intersection of 53rd Street and Ladner Trunk Road.

Woman facing assault charges from Tsaw. incident A woman is facing assault charges after an early morning incident Tuesday. At about 3:45 a.m. Tuesday, Delta police responded to a report of an assault in the 1600-block of

Tsawwassen Drive North. The victim advised officers she had been punched in the face and that she knew the suspect. Officers located the suspect and took her into custody without incident. She

was transported to police headquarters where she was held for a court appearance. The victim sustained an injury to her eye. Police are recommending charges of assault causing bodily harm.

The Vancouver man facing charges in a string of sexual assaults, including against two Delta teens, has pleaded guilty. Ibata Hexamer, 44, pleaded guilty to six of the 23 charges he was facing in three sexual assault cases that spanned 15 years. In the summer of 2009, Delta police issued a call for help in solving a twoyear-old cold case. Almost five years ago,

on Aug. 30, 2007 at 4:30 p.m., Delta police officers responded to a report of a sexual assault involving two 14-year-old girls. The attack occurred in the 11200-block of 84th Avenue in North Delta. The two girls were approached by a man in the area behind what used to be Marlborough College and subsequently assaulted. A few weeks after the department made the appeal to the public, the same suspect struck again — this time in Surrey where a six-

year-old girl was attacked. Both cases were linked, through DNA evidence, to a 1995 sexual assault in Vancouver. Hexamer, described by police as a “serial child sex predator,” was arrested in Vancouver in December 2010. The investigation that led to the arrest and charges, which was dubbed Project Scourge, took place over more than 18 months and involved countless officers. Hexamer is scheduled to be sentenced in October.

Pioneering Guichons to be honoured at museum’s Delta Heritage Golf Classic played an essential part in Delta’s history. This year, recognition goes to the Guichon family pioneers, who in the early 1890s became the first hoteliers in Delta, operating along the Fraser River at what quickly became

The Guichon family is slated to be honoured at today’s Delta Heritage Golf Classic. In keeping with previous tournaments, this year’s event acknowledges and recognizes a family that has deep roots in Delta and has

known as Port Guichon. The Delta Museum and Archives Society’s 12th annual golf tourney is being held at Beach Grove Golf Club. Proceeds support the society’s efforts to increase public awareness of Delta’s

uniqueness and to develop educational programs to preserve its history. Last year, all funds raised from the tournament went towards the museum’s outreach exhibits to help increase community engagement.

Upcoming workshop aims to get seniors more active

Free session set for next week at KinVillage in Tsaw. There is a lot of discussion and concern expressed about the growing seniors population and what that is going to mean for the future of an already overstressed health care system. When most seniors and those nearing retirement talk about their future, they are focused on maintaining good health and independence. They do not want to be a burden to their family. But saying that and achieving it can be two different things. Seniors who are physically active will have lower rates of falls and fractures. They will have a better quality of life with less chance of developing chronic health conditions. Walking is an easy way to add physical activity to daily routine, especially if you are able to walk while

doing errands. The Delta Seniors Planning Team is hosting a workshop about reducing health risks and maintaining good health through physical activity. Sepia Sharma, Delta community health specialist with Fraser Health, will talk about the many health benefits of walking, how to prevent falls and information on accessing walk pathways. The workshop will be held Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 1:30 p.m. at the KinVillage Community Centre, 543010th Ave., Tsawwassen. Following the workshop presentation, there will be a discussion of the “walkability” — where is it easy to walk and where are there barriers — of the Tsawwassen area. The information collected will be used by the Delta

Seniors Planning Team to conduct a report on the walkability and “rollability” of Tsawwassen. A team of seniors with varying degrees of mobility, from walking with a mobility aid to using a wheelchair or scooter, will assess the areas identified in the workshop. The information collected in this study will be published for seniors and the community to raise awareness of the importance of a community that has good walking space for its residents. There are plans to do a similar workshop and report in Ladner on Saturday, Sept. 15. The workshop is free and open to anyone interested in this topic. For more information call 604-946-9526 or email lynw@deltassist. com.

MURPHY’S LAW The Olympics are all about bringing the countries of the world together to square off in athletic competition at the highest level and with the utmost degree of sportsmanship. They’re also a great time to talk a little smack with friends from around the globe. Coming from a country that’s doing reasonably well in London, but is still lagging behind some of the world’s sporting powers, I’ve had to pick my spots when sending greetings to those residing in other parts of the world. Eight years ago, at the same time Athens hosted the Summer Olympics, we opened our home to an exchange student from South Korea. There were several evenings where Jae-Yong would join our family to watch the Games, and as much as I tried to convince that polite, Englishchallenged 16-year-old he’d be wise to hitch his wagon to Canada’s sporting fortunes, he knew enough to point, with a smile plastered all over his face, to his homeland’s place in the medal standings. Touché indeed. Given South Korea is once again ahead of us in the medal table, I knew I had to find the right time to give him a good-natured poke. That opportunity presented itself in badminton, so I shot him a note that said something to the effect that even though we might not be faring too well, at least we don’t cheat. How much sarcasm the polite, slightly less English-challenged 24-year-old read into the Facebook post is unclear, but I had to laugh when I got a very sincere apology for what he called his country’s most unsportsmanlike behaviour. I then turned my attention to Australia where Scott, our former Tour de Delta billet, calls home. When our women’s track cycling pursuit team knocked off the Aussies in a head-to-head race for bronze, I knew I had my chance to be a bit of a knocker by congratulating him on his country’s fourth place finish. I might have also mentioned something about how dreadful it must be that the Aussies had only one gold medal through the first week of the Olympics, conveniently leaving out the part that Canada was also stuck on a single trampolining gold. He got the joke, but instead of derision back, I got his pity about how Canada always fares better in the Winter Olympics. Did he not read the part about our Canadian girls administering a beat down on his Aussie gals, and in cycling no less? Perhaps they’re taking that whole Olympic oath thing too much to heart because I thought Canadians were supposed to be the polite ones.

Time to speak up as pressure mounting on Delta farmland IAN ROBERTSON

COMMUNITY COMMENT Summer is when we take time out. As I was recently driving home from the B.C. interior along Highway 1 just east of Kamloops, I couldn’t help but see many loaded trains — coal and containers — making their way along the railway track. In fact we observed five trains in the space of an hour, all of which brings me to wonder about our beloved little piece of paradise we call South Delta. We are under unprecedented pressure to develop. The pressure is to industrialize, to convert some of the best agricultural land in Canada into to an international transportation mecca. If not that, then build houses and shopping centres and consider garbage incineration. All of which is to say that agriculture and bird flyways will disappear.

The economics are clear: farmland is valued at say $40,000 to $80,000 an acre and land for houses is worth over $1 million an acre. The recent action where 558 acres were optioned for railways and industrial uses was done at $185,000 an acre. This newspaper carried a story a week ago and followed with an editorial on Wednesday reporting on the looming shortage of industrial land in Delta. According to the report, available industrial land in Delta will all be taken within 10 years. The report also stated the provincial government forecasts the South Fraser Perimeter Road will create 7,000 long-term jobs in and around Delta, all part of the government’s job creation plan. The plan seeks in part to “increase road and rail capacity, and bulk and container capacity at B.C. ports.” Some say don’t worry; we have lots of agricultural land. A closer look puts a lie to this. In the past nine years, the land in the Agricultural Land Reserve has decreased in six of those years. The additions have almost all been up north — Fort St. James, Prince George, Burns Lake, etc., where

this former forested land has been wiped clear by beetle kill. This land is not comparable to the Fraser Valley and to Delta where over 12,000 acres of prime farmland has been removed. The simple fact is that land comparable to Delta land is not found up north. So the pressures to double Deltaport, to create a major railway yard, to build more roads, and make way for industrial parks, incinerators and shopping centres, are all upon us. A fundamental challenge is that many of these decisions to take the land for these purposes are being made in Victoria and Ottawa by expropriation legislation. The decisions are being made despite what we who live here might want. They are decisions that senior levels of government can make “in the national interest” without even consulting us. What will we do when we run out of land? How do we get to sustainable living? How does expropriating land — to expand railways — to ship containers of consumer goods from China to Chicago address the national interest? It’s time to speak up — to say if this is the change you want!

August 10, 2012 The Delta Optimist A13 Letters to the Editor

Editor: Re: Spetifores found support for initial development plans, Community Comment, Aug. 3 It is frustrating to read Doug Husband’s column in which he claims the vast majority of soils on Southlands are classified as 4 and 5 (being very poor) when the ALC website and other studies confirm there is a variety of soils from Class 1 to Class 4 and that poorer lands can, in most cases, be improved by better irrigation and drainage. One has only to look to Earthwise Farm’s success with organic gardening, and the recent potato planting and harvesting at 56th

Street and 6th Avenue, to see what happens when soil is properly nurtured. I do not see any evidence of smells and vandalism and theft and traffic, which Husband seems to feel must occur with farming. Our local traffic problems arise from having one main road in and out of the community — a road that includes too many traffic lights that impede smooth traffic flow — as well as large numbers of people who flock to Point Roberts for cheap gas. Readers need a reminder that it was a 1989 citizenled plebiscite (following the longest public hearing in history, which was cut off by Mayor Doug Husband

and council of the day) that put the issue of the proposed TDL development on Southlands to rest. Husband concludes his article with a comment that the exclusion of Southlands from ALR in 1979 was needed “to meet a very strong demand for residential and other urban uses” as there was less than two years’ supply of developable land at that time. It makes one question what kind of dealings transpired in order to have the lands removed from the ALR. Hopefully this saga will be continued and we will all receive further enlightenment. Jean Wightman

Ban use of those annoying propane cannons

Editor: I have lived in Ladner for 20 years and I am accustomed to the noises and odours typically associated with farming activity. However, the nature of farming has changed over the last two summers with an increasing number of propane cannons being used to protect crops. It is difficult to enjoy living here since the cannons

have started up again. It is aggravating to be woken up at 6:30 every morning feeling like I’m in the middle of an artillery range. We have bylaws intended to protect our right to peace and quiet, but there is a double standard with regard to the operation of propane cannons. If I ran my electric saw or my air compressor at 6:30 on a Saturday morning you can bet I would hear

about it. Why are the blueberry farmers allowed to be irresponsible neighbours? I urge everyone who is affected by this type of noise pollution to write to the minister of agriculture, the Farm Industry Review Board and our mayor and council requesting they support legislation that would ban the use of propane cannons in British Columbia. George Bartz

Truck numbers are on the rise at Deltaport

Editor: There is an increasing odour of mendacity coming from Deltaport. In 2005, the public was informed by Port Metro Vancouver the third berth at the Deltaport container terminal would increase truck traffic from 1,800 truck trips per day to 2,400 truck trips per day. Fast forward to the new road and rail upgrades underway and the port

is now saying there were 3,000 truck trips per day in 2010 and that will increase to 4,500 truck trips per day once the third berth reaches capacity. So instead of an increase of 600 truck trips per day, the third berth will generate 2,700 more truck trips per day. To my mind, we were told a whopper. Add to that another 3,000 trips per day for employee and service vehicles.

And let’s not forget Port Metro Vancouver is moving forward with plans for Terminal 2 with an additional three berths that would double the current size. This is despite statistics that show we already have plenty of container capacity. This is all about empire building with smoke and mirrors. It is not good economics. Susan Jones

Highs and lows of a hectic Sun Festival Antique Fair Editor: On behalf of the Sun Festival Antique Fair, I would like to thank everyone that attended the 34th annual show. I would like to congratulate Mr. Morison of Tsawwassen, winner of a Royal Doulton figurine

door prize. A special thanks also is extended to Jack, Chad and Jeff at the South Delta Recreation Centre, who always go the extra distance to make a hectic three days go all the more smoothly. On a more somber note, myself and the antique

fair family of dealers wish to extend our heartfelt best wishes to Marilyn Maclennan, whose partner, Al Sweeney, was gravely injured in a single-car accident in Richmond on his way home after he had set up their booth at the show. D. Malcolm Johnston

Penny and master lose special spot

Editor: A number of readers have sent you letters about the closing of Harris Nursery and I wanted to add mine as well. For the past five years, during our daily walks, my mini dachshund, Penny, and I have stopped by Harris Nursery, where we were always greeted with smiles and pats by the wonderful staff. We bought flowers to give to friends, put on my son’s grave or just to cheer up the house. When we heard they were closing, I felt like I had lost something very special. Now I don’t take Penny for her walk anywhere near that empty site; she wouldn’t understand where they all went. I hope the staff members read this and know how much they meant to Penny and to me.

Perfect place “What would the world be like without Captain Hook?” This quote from the 1991 movie Hook has always fascinated me. I have always wondered what the world would be like without sin and the bad things in life. What would it be like without sickness, death, lying, cheating, the guy cutting me off in traffic and whatever else we can think of? Sounds pretty good, does it not? I can do without any of those things and more! I think all of us would like to live in a place like this. We are all affected by sin; none of us can escape it. Many of us rationalize it by saying that it is the bad things in life that make the good so much sweeter, and although the

bad can remind of us better things, I would be more apt to say the good things in life sweeten themselves. After all, when I am with friends or my family I do not need some bad thing to remind me how great it is, rather I am simply enjoying what is going on and wishing that it would not end. The Bible often reminds us that a perfect place does exist, Heaven, a place without tears, death, mourning or suffering, a place where we can enjoy being happy forever. Although I cannot always imagine it, I do look forward to that eternal happiness.

DriveTıme CX-5 leading Mazda into future

First vehicle in automaker8s lineup that includes full range of SkyActiv technologies DAVID CHAO & BOB MCHUGH


Mazda is making a sweeping change in its product lineup, starting with the new CX-5.

It’s the first Mazda to feature the full range of the new SkyActiv technologies that are redefining this automaker. The CX-5 is also the first Mazda with Kodo (“Soul of Motion”), a

new design theme that will be adopted by the entire product line. While appealing to a broad range of buyers, the CX-5 is seen as a natural progression vehicle for

current Mazda3 owners. It’s a step up to a roomier vehicle with all the connective features a young family is looking for these days. The CX-5 also offers sporty driving dynamics and great

The CX-5 features a lightweight body that provides better fuel economy.

fuel economy for a start price of just $22,995. SkyActiv is a complete re-evaluation of every part of the automobile with an overriding goal of better fuel efficiency. It pushes current technology to a new level without the added cost of electrification, which can always be added at a later date, and it starts with the new lightweight body structure of the CX-5. The high percentage of high-tensile steel used in the structure allows CX-5 to weigh only 1488 kg (3280 lbs.) with an automatic transmission. It’s lighter than the Honda CR-V (a benchmark competitor) even though it’s a little larger in overall length and width and has a longer wheelbase. At the core of SkyActiv is a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. It features friction-reducing measures, a unique long-runner exhaust manifold design and a very high compression ratio (13:1), yet it still runs on regular fuel. The highway fuel economy rating is a class leading 5.7 L/100 km (or 50 mpg). A six-speed manual transmission comes standard in the base GX trim version, while a six-speed automatic is an option on that trim and is standard with GS and GT trim levels. All-wheel-drive is standard with GT trim and an option with GS and GX, which gives buyers a good range of drivetrain/trim choices. The Looks The so-called “happy face” front end is gone and a new Kodo design theme is taking over at Mazda. It gives the CX-5 a more prominent and bolder face with a five-point grille and a large Mazda emblem. Kodo is an interesting

mix of smooth flowing sheet metal and sharpangled design elements that supposedly emulate the power and grace of a big cat, such as a cheetah. It certainly is an attractive take on the two-box utility vehicle and you might even see the inner-cat’s presence in places like headlights, tail lights and those ear-like side mirrors. In addition to a sleek styling exercise, the CX-5 is an aerodynamic design with a drag coefficient of just 0.33. The aero payoff is better fuel efficiency, especially at highway speeds, and quieter operation with less wind noise. The Inside The CX-5 comes with standard push-button ignition. A chunky steering wheel and bucket-style front seats, which offer more lateral support than most in this class, add to the sporty appeal. The steering wheel also tilts and telescopes and allowed a nice driver instruments/controls alignment setup that had me purring. Big doors make getting in and out easy and the CX-5 has plenty of room for five people. A three-way split flatfolding (40/20/40) rear seat comes in the GS and GT trim levels, which is different. So, too, are the remote release handles to fold down the rear seatbacks, which are located in the back cargo area and accessible from outside the vehicle. Unfortunately, the rear seatbacks don’t have a recline feature, as do some competitors. A large touch-screen display dominates the centre dash area and can be linked See CX-5 page 17

CX-5 from page 16 to an optional low-cost TomTom navigation system. The connectivity menu has just about everything and includes Bluetooth, iPod, USB and AUX hookups in the centre console storage bin. A nine-speaker Bose audio system is also available. Safety The airbag protection package comes with rollover sensors and doubleacting auto power door locks are standard. The GS and GT trim levels come with both a rear-view parking camera and a blind-spot detection system. The Drive While briskly travelling along a winding country road, we had to check over my shoulder occasionally to remind myself us that we were piloting a utility vehicle and not a sporty car. The light, agile handling and solid chassis fun-todrive qualities of the driverfriendly CX-5 come to the fore when the road gets twisty. While acceleration is certainly not a head-snapping experience, it does have enough grunt to get past something in a hurry when needed. Our test CX-5 came with the new SkyActiv six-speed automatic, which is smaller and lighter but functions like a conventional automatic, and is slicker than most. There’s a manual mode feature on the shifter gate, but unfortunately there’s no auto “sport” mode. A MacPherson strut type suspension is up front and the CX-5 uses a multi-link arrangement in the rear, which leaves room for the all-wheel drive components. The all-wheel drive system sends all power to the front wheels during normal driving conditions. This provides best fuel economy and as much as 50 per cent can quickly be redirected to the rear when needed. On an initial cold startup the SkyActiv engine is noisy, but the din disappears fairly quickly as the engine warms up. On the highway the overall cabin noise level is actually quite low and the engine is barely audible at cruising speeds. The Score The all-new Mazda CX-5 is a game-changer in the compact utility market. It offers fantastic fuel economy and exceptional road manners in a practical package. The Specs Trim levels: GX, GS and

Delta Community Animal Shelter manager Sarah Lowe and Suzie Q get ready for the annual Delta Community Animal Expo, which is set for Memorial Park in Ladner this Sunday.

Animal Expo returns BY



amilies and their furry friends will have a chance to get together for some fun at the Delta Community Animal Expo on Sunday in Ladner. The fourth edition of the event, put on by the Delta Community Animal Shelter, takes place at Memorial Park. The expo will be bigger than last year’s version, notes shelter manager Sarah Lowe. “There’s so much happening,” she says. In addition to almost double the number of exhibitors (from 30 to around 55), the shelter is also introducing the Tollie Fund Activity Arena. Pet owners are welcome to enter their dogs in activities for a small fee. Entry fees go to the shelter’s Tollie Fund, money “used to aid in improving the lives of the animals (to reduce stress) while they are living in the shelter and to provide medical care so an animal that requires a little more help can have a chance at adoption,” the shelter’s website states. The fund, originally set up in 2008 to help raise money for Tollie, then a puppy that needed expensive knee surgery, has helped numerous animals over the years. Last year the fund helped 18 animals with veterinary bills totaling over $10,000. Arena events include dog yoga, musical mats,

a relay race and more. The arena is sponsored by Bosley’s so every dog that takes part gets a prize of some sort, Lowe notes. Demonstrations run throughout the day at the expo’s show stage. Among them will be a pet first aid class, dog bite prevention for kids and adults, and a free dog training class from Amber Cottle. One highlight will be the conclusion of a pet looka-like contest. Entries were submitted to the shelter’s Facebook page and the top three (determined by most likes on Facebook) will be judged on the show stage at 3:30 p.m. There will be plenty of food at the event, Lowe adds. Options include hotdogs from a stand hosted by Pets-N-Us, Bombay Joe’s fare, cupcakes (along with decorating for the children or kid at heart) by FrostBite Cupcakes and Candy Company, and ice cream. Delta Community Animal Shelter’s Delta Community Animal Expo takes place Sunday, Aug. 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Memorial Park, 501047th Ave. Admission is free. The expo is on the same day as the Ladner Village Market. “If you’re coming out to that, just walk a couple more blocks and come by,” says Lowe. For more information visit

Recipes to beat that Frappuccino p.j. wren

Well on Your Way


am sure Frappuccinos are good. I mean they sell a kazillion of them a year globally (, so they’ve got to be pretty tasty. What stops me from ordering one is the knowledge that one Grande (16 ounces) will set me back 110 calories and push my recommended daily sugar intake through the roof — almost six teaspoons — and that’s the “light” version I’m talking about. Order a full fat Grande, and you’re looking at 240 calories and almost 12 teaspoons of sugar. Yikes, no thanks. I would much rather give my body some nutrition while providing it with a tasty cold drink to cool off with during these hot days. So, what do I suggest? A protein smoothie is fast and easy to make. It’s also tasty and full of nutrients the body can both metabolize and put to good use. If you are new to protein powder, I suggest you start with a protein isolate blend, unsweetened, or if you are like me and have a sweet tooth, sweetened with Stevia. These can be purchased at any higher-end grocery store as well as any health food store.

I also suggest you purchase the smallest containers you can of both the vanilla and chocolate flavours, so you can ensure you like the taste (believe me, some powders are way better tasting than others!), and so you can cycle through all of the recipes. Happy blending and let me know your favourites. Chunky Monkey 1 scoop chocolate protein powder 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1/2 frozen banana (see tip below) 1 tbsp. all-natural smooth peanut butter 1/4 cup 0% Greek yogurt 2-3 ice cubes Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Piña Colada 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 frozen banana (see tip below) 1/2 cup pineapple (fresh or canned, drained) 1/4 cup 0% Greek yogurt 2-3 ice cubes Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Chocolate Mint 1 1/2 scoops chocolate protein powder 1 cup unsweetened almond milk Peppermint extract, to taste (start with less than 1/8 tsp, adding more as desired) 5 ice cubes 2 large handfuls fresh spinach

(you can’t taste this at all!) Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 1/3 cup canned pumpkin 1 frozen banana (see tip below) 5 ice cubes 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk 1-1/2 tsp. pumpkin spice Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Almond Joy Smoothie 1 scoop chocolate protein powder 1 cup coconut water 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 2 tbsp. flaked coconut 3-4 ice cubes 1/2 tsp. coconut extract Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Tip: Peel your bananas, cut them in half and place them in a zip-locked baggie before freezing them. This way they are easy to pull from the freezer to add to your blender. They’re also portioned perfectly, whether you need a half banana or a whole one. P.J. Wren is a local personal trainer and fitness writer who can be found around town sipping any of these tasty and healthy shakes. Follow her at www. and catch her weekly fitness show on Delta TV.

Golfing for B.C. Guide Dogs

Four-time Stanley Cup champ Howie Meeker will tee it up later this month in aid of Ladner-based B.C. Guide Dog Services. “We can’t give someone back their sight,” says Meeker, “but you give them a guide dog and they go to school with the dog, they work, they play sports. (They can do) everything you and I can do.” Meeker and his wife Leah started the golf tournament 15 years ago and have raised approximately $400,000 in total. B.C. Guide Dog Services relies on donations to cover the $37,500 cost of raising a guide dog so that visually-impaired people can access the canines for free. In 2007, the charity named

one of its puppies after Meeker. Howie the guide dog now lives in Port Moody with his blind partner Lynn. Last year Meeker was awarded the Order of Canada, the nation’s highest civilian honour, in recognition of his contributions to Canadian hockey and to charities like B.C. Guide Dog Services. Registration is still open for the Howie Meeker Golf for Guide Dogs charity tournament on Friday, Aug. 24 at 1:30 p.m. at Beach Grove Golf Club in Tsawwassen. Cost is $175 per player, which includes lunch and dinner. More information is available at 604-940-4504 or

Values collide on Delta’s farmland

Development pressures, particularly from the port, have turned agricultural land into a battleground

By Sandor Gyarmati Delta is becoming a battleground over values. Two opposing viewpoints, which couldn’t be any more different, appear to be on a collision course over the future of Delta’s farmland, considered to be some of the best in the country. On one side, there’s resistance to any development or change, with many citing concerns over environmental impacts and the need for food security. On the other, there’s the possibility many hectares will be converted into container storage yards, trucking depots and warehouses, due to a shortage of industrial land in proximity to the port at Roberts Bank.That land is reportedly needed to service the Asia Pacific Gateway initiative to facilitate growth of the economy both regionally and nationally. That second scenario is what groups like the Council of Canadians and Against Port Expansion (APE) say could happen, so they’re campaigning against the industrialization of the Fraser River delta. Others, like the Fraser Institute, describe the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) as a failed social experiment that hasn’t halted the decline of family farm operations. The ALR in Delta comprises about 9,400 hectares, of which around 6,700 hectares (71 per cent) is both “actively” and “inactively” farmed. The problem is that while Delta might be still considered a farming community, as well as a critically important part of the Pacific Flyway for migratory birds, it’s surrounded by a huge and growing Lower Mainland urban population that brings its own pressures. It also happens to be home to the busiest container port in Canada, one that has plans to grow. Warning the farming community could become an industrial wasteland, Delta South independent MLA Vicki Huntington this year revealed plans to industrialize some prime ALR land with warehouse logistics to support the Deltaport container terminal. Huntington found that a warehouse developer signed $98 million in options to buy 11 farm parcels near Deltaport Way. She said she’s concerned that if the

consortium partnered with Port Metro Vancouver, there may be no need to go through the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) to exclude the acreage because the port falls within federal jurisdiction. “I do know the province is very aware of this and quite supportive of it... I can see them justifying it because of Gateway (program).These are seen as strategic port-related lands.” Noting even more plans may be on the horizon, the group Stopthepave. org said it’s “just what we know about for sure.” Delta North New Democrat MLA Guy Gentner, who also wondered why so much Delta farmland has been purchased for B.C. Rail, noted Delta has already suffered from a wave of exclusions from the ALR that have undermined the ability of the community to retain its agricultural character and support farmers. In response, Agriculture Minister Don McRae said anyone seeking to have land removed from the reserve needs to go through a proper process with the local community and the commission. The controversy is the latest when it comes to Delta’s farmland, multiplying the uncertainty regarding Port Metro Vancouver’s Container Capacity Improvement Program. A major element of that program is an entirely new three-berth terminal at Roberts Bank, known as Terminal 2 (T2), which would double container capacity. This year also happens to mark the 40th anniversary of the effort by the province to freeze B.C.’s agricultural land from development, an unprecedented move in Canada that hasn’t been duplicated. It was late in 1972 when the New Democratic government announced it would be passing laws prevent-

ing farms from being rezoned for urban use.Then agriculture minister Dave Stupich said he would not advise anyone to invest in farmland with any intention to develop it for residential or industrial purposes. He said that if the trends in real estate at that time continued, there would be no agricultural land left in the Okanagan or Fraser valleys. In response, then Delta mayor Dugald Morrison said the provincial government was “the worst offender” in taking away good farmland in Delta. He pointed to the government just a few years prior to that expropriating thousands of acres for future industrial development to support the Roberts Bank superport. Those expropriated lands, known as the Roberts Bank back-up lands, were leased back to farmers and never developed. It would be decades later before much of the land was sold back to the farmers, but not before some of it was set aside for the Tsawwassen First Nation treaty. The TFN, which is being eyed as a possible location for an expansive foreign (free) trade zone, is currently working with Port Metro Vancouver on developing industrial land. As far as the B.C. farmland freeze, the controversy over the move by government was just starting to heat up in 1972 when an article from the monthly newsletter of the B.C. Institute of Agrologists noted the paving over of the Fraser Valley could not be allowed to happen. “It would be foolish indeed to become dependant on another province or country for our food. Problems and political decisions

Protesters have been vocal over plans to industrialize Delta’s farmland.

beyond our control could very well affect the cost and availability of our food,” the article noted. Commenting on the current optioning controversy, the Wilderness Committee’s Joe Foy on his group’s website echoed concerns conveyed by many today when it comes to food security. He said the region “cannot afford to lose one square inch more of farmland to shortsighted developments,” including port-related expansion. The highly controversial Agricultural Land Reserve was introduced as law in 1973, drawing an immediate negative reaction from local farmers, developers and property owners. The person receiving the biggest brunt of the storm at that time locally was Carl Liden, the NDP MLA for Delta. He got an earful at a heated public meeting that year, where more than 1,000 people showed up to voice their anger. At that gathering, local farmers and landowners were critical of the New Democrats, saying the government was seizing control of land while not doing enough to help farmers. Liden got jeers as he tried to explain that large tracts of Delta land were owned by real estate firms. “I don’t think their intention is to farm the land,” he said. Today, some Delta farmers continue to oppose the reserve.They also openly question the viability of farming in the Lower Mainland. In a 2007

interview on the subject, John Savage, who’s the current president of the Delta Farmers’ Institute, recalled that most in Delta were upset about the land freeze, but it’s clear most of Delta’s prime farmland would have otherwise been paved long ago. He recently told the Optimist he’s opposed to the optioning deals, noting too much valuable farmland is being lost.

container port to the Trans-Canada Highway. More is expected to be lost through a multitude of road and rail projects underway or in the future to accommodate a planned increase in the movement of goods. Meantime, the province this year recently unveiled the Pacific Gateway Transportation Strategy 2012 - 2020, a series of measures to improve the supply chain on the West Coast.

Terminal 2 is also prominent in strategy. According to Port Metro Vancouver, “One in every 12 working people in the Lower Mainland earns a living because of a port-related business and many more work in businesses that depend on shipping goods through the port.

how can we more effectively plan use of land in the Lower Mainland in the future, we face some severe consequences which can be very detrimental to the economy.” A recent Metro Vancouver report noted the new Regional Growth Strategy reaffirms the long-standing regional value of protecting agricultural land from conversion to nonagricultural uses. The report, though, also echoes Silvester’s concern, stating,“The region lacks a functional forum to, at a minimum, coordinate and share information about land use, transportation and economic development between senior governments, industry and local government authorities.” Decisions that could dramatically alter Delta’s landscape, however, shouldn’t be done piecemeal, behind the scenes or in isolation, said Dr. Gordon Price, program director of the City Program at Simon Fraser University. Saying potential trade-offs should be discussed with as many stakeholders as possible, Price noted the decisionmaking process must be a transparent one. He’s concerned the character of Delta, as well as its values, will be transformed without any real input from citizens. “You know the discussions are occurring behind closed doors.The port is not being upfront about it either.The (ALC) board really has to take a position, in my opinion, on whether they are going to sacrifice agricultural land on this scale,” he said. “The Agricultural Land Reserve is the most important land use decision made in this province - period. It’s certainly as far as the Lower Mainland is concerned and it’s constraint is one factor that has led to the quality of life of the region, the values that we believe, the significance of the Pacific Flyway, food security, which is a current issue but one that will only be more important, and one gets the sense that these things aren’t being discussed or even put on the table.” Delta council asked Clark, as well as the federal government, to ensure Ottawa doesn’t use its power to remove port-related land from the ALR without the ALC’s consent.

Established 1898



Students are having tasty lessons these days with help from local greenhouses, including Delta’s Windset Farms. Director of sales Jeff Madu has been supplying local produce to classrooms since 2006. It’s all happening as part of the B.C. School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program. The idea is to teach kids the benefits of eating healthy food. “We grow small-sized varieties like baby bell peppers, grape tomatoes and mini-cucumbers,” says Madu, “and they’re perfect for the classroom. It’s just a case of wash and serve.” Only one in five children eats the recommended minimum of five fruits and veggies per day. That’s why the program tries to increase awareness about the delicious variety of fresh local produce. Kids learn fun facts while they’re snacking on baby bell peppers, such as peppers are a fruit, not a veggie, and you can get a dose of vitamins just by eating them. The problem sometimes is just getting kids to try

new foods. Can watching classmates eating produce tempt kids to try some themselves? “Yes,” Madu enthuses, “I’ve received letters from parents saying my kids never wanted to eat tomatoes, but they tried them in the classroom and now they like them.” “Eating habits developed in childhood influence our health later in life,” says Lindsay Babineau. As executive director of Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation, she is part of the team that developed and runs the program. “That’s why we want to get kids eating fruits and veggies as early as possible.” There’s often a learning curve when offering something new. She tells how the first tray of fruits and vegetables offered to students at one school stayed untouched all day. Happily, the kids are fast learners. Now the produce is gobbled down as soon as it’s put out. The program covers schools throughout the province, including inner-

city, First Nations and schools in remote northern communities. “We use produce from farms across B.C., but sometimes it has to travel by truck and ferry to get to those remote schools,” says Babineau, “and it’s wonderful to think some of these kids are being exposed to new produce. Some of them have never seen a mini-cuke before, and they just love them.” The program also teaches important lessons about food safety. Students must wash their hands before they pick a pepper or crunch on a cuke. And though the produce comes already washed, students are taught to wash their hands as well as the produce they eat outside the classroom. Throughout the province, 6.3 million servings of produce were used during this past school year, including over three millions servings of greenhouse tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. Twenty-four Delta schools now participate in the program, including classes from kindergarden through Grade 12.

Day at the Farm provides up close look for public

Delta Farmland & Wildlife Trust and Westham Island Herb Farm are presenting the seventh annual Day at the Farm community event next month. The event, which includes many new features this year, takes place at Westham Island Herb Farm (4690 Kirkland Rd.) on Saturday, Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. This is an opportunity to visit a working farm and meet local farmers to hear first-hand about the challenges of growing food and how our farmers combine ingenuity and hard work to be successful. Meeting farmers in this setting is an excellent way for the public to become more educated, fostering trust and confidence in those who grow our food. In addition to local famers, there will be interactive displays and presentations as well as the ever-popular hay-wagon farm tours. Witness the age-old skill of draughthorse ploughing, while the Mobile Dairy Classroom will give live milking demonstrations, showing how dairy farmers

Farmers receiving help to deal with climate change also a concern, given possible shifts in their range, distribution and survival rates. Perhaps the biggest obstacle to overcome, however, is raising awareness of these risks. “It’s a common misconception that climate change just means warmer and more favourable conditions for food production in B.C.,” says Allen James, chair of the council’s Climate Action Initiative, “but the projected changes would create a more complex and challenging environment for B.C.’s agricultural producers.” So will B.C. be prepared for these challenges? “We’re on the right path,” according to Emily MacNair, co-ordinator

of the Climate Action Initiative. “Managing climate change impacts to B.C.’s food system will involve decisions, infrastructure and resources that go well beyond the farm gate. “Adapting to climate change is a collective challenge,” MacNair observes. “Planning and collaboration are needed in our communities and the province as a whole.” Despite their awareness of the potential risks facing agricultural producers, both MacNair and James remain confident about the sector’s ability to adapt and thrive. “The assessment has provided a critical foundation to help enhance B.C. agriculture in a changing climate,” James emphasizes.

When it comes to adapting to one’s environment, you can’t beat a farmer. Climate change, however, and its potential impact on food production, presents an unprecedented assortment of challenges. This is why the Investment Agriculture Foundation felt it was imperative to support the B.C. Agriculture Council in assessing the risks and opportunities that climate change could pose for B.C.’s agricultural sector. Thanks to the input provided by producers across the province, a series of reports are now available which highlight potential climate change impacts for B.C. agriculture at a regional and commodity specific level, as well as possible approaches to support adaptation efforts. Among other challenges, producers could contend with an increase of extreme precipitation events in spring and fall, more extended dry periods in the summer, and associated shifts in stream flow and water supply. Difficulty managing pest, disease and invasive plant outbreaks is

rial is prohibited. Delta also recently agreed to a land exchange with the school district that places the former Tsawwassen School Reserve, comprising 20 acres of good farmland, under municipal ownership and secures that land for long-term soil-based farming. Delta is also participating in a nine-month pilot project to examine the impacts of climate change on agriculture. This project will bring farmers, government and industry partners together to develop adaptation strategies that can be integrated into agricultural planning. The support of key agricultural organizations is critical to the success

of the Agricultural Plan. Organizations including the Delta Farmers’ Institute, Delta Agricultural Society and Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust collaborate and partner with Delta on many important agricultural issues. For example, the crop identification signs visible from many of Delta’s roads and highways are the result of a partnership between Delta and the Delta Agricultural Society to raise awareness of the diversity of produce grown in the community. Delta also provides funding to support other agriculture-related programs such as the effort to enhance wildlife habitat on farmland by Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust.

“Delta is a place where the business of farming can prosper while contributing vitally to the community’s ecological attributes and social, cultural, and economic well-being.” Delta’s Agricultural Plan, approved in 2011, includes this vision and provides a basis for initiatives that honour the history and support the future of the community’s agricultural industry for the next 20 years. The Agricultural Plan identifies key goals to protect and enhance agriculture in Delta and work is already underway to reach those goals. For example, Delta recently adopted a bylaw to regulate soil deposit and removal on farmland, which ensures good soil is retained and poor fill mate-

Local greenhouses are using numerous strategies to fight organisms harmful to their crops. At Delta View Farms, this battle is being led by head grower Gordon Yakel. Yakel, a graduate of SFU’s biology program, uses Integrated Pest and Disease Management to stay one step ahead of his adversaries. IPM and IDM use the principles of tolerant plant varieties, cleanliness, monitoring and treatment to deal with pests and diseases. The first challenge is to match the right rootstock to a particular tomato variety while maintaining tolerance to the main plant diseases and still producing a tasty, high quality fruit. “I do at least two years of greenhouse trials before choosing only the best performers to grow,” states Yakel. Starting clean is another important strategy. In December workers remove last year’s crop, grow bags and the plastic ground cover used to stop weed growth. This is followed by a general wash down of

When the young crop reaches a height of about 1.2 metres, the bottom-most leaves are removed weekly from the plant. To stop the spread of disease, the knives used for leaf pruning are regularly dipped into a disinfectant. The disinfectant also acts as a desiccant, helping the wounds to dry

quickly. Catching problems early is also important. Plants from one row in each greenhouse bay or section are looked at once a week, so after five weeks every plant in the greenhouse has been inspected. Monitoring includes checking top and undersides of leaves for pests and diseases. This is done in the top, middle and bottom of the crop canopy. Monitoring is also done with yellow sticky cards, which attract and trap flying insect pests.

in Adanacs take control of junior “A” finals Juniors action at Delta Islanders fall into 3-1 series hold despite being highly competitive with defending champions BY


This is indeed a different era with different expectations for the Delta Junior “A” Islanders lacrosse club. Making their first-ever appearance in the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League finals, the Islanders are holding their own against the heavily favoured Coquitlam Adanacs. They were dominated in all three regular season meetings by the defending champions but this best-of-seven affair has been a much different. After a 12-7 opening game loss, Delta has matched blow-for-blow with Coquitlam in the past three games and even have a 10-8 game two victory to show for it. The locals hung tough in an 8-7 road loss on Monday and overcame a three goal first period deficit Wednesday to take a third period lead, only to lose 7-6. However, don’t try convincing Shawn Springett he should be pleased with his team’s performance thus far. He delivered a paint-peeling post-game rant to his players following Wednesday’s loss, challenging them to be better heading into last night’s game five do-or-die scenario in Coquitlam. The bar was raised three years ago by then GM/head coach Greg Rennie and Springett and his staff are pushing it even higher. Morale victories are no longer acceptable for a franchise that had been nothing more than an also-ran for much of its history. “If we get beat because a better team beats us then I am alright with it. But I’m not putting them in the ‘they are better than us’ category,” said Springett who was still trying to get his heart rate down after watching his squad squander a golden opportunity to even the series. “We can play with them, if not beat them and we’re still not out of this.”

Delta Islanders Mike Mallory gets the ball knocked loose by Coquitlam’s Hugh Weir during game four action of the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League championship series on Wednesday at Sungod Arena. “They are a very good team and I’m not trying to take anything away from them. I’m just disappointed in some of our veterans when the core of this team played their hearts out.” What had Springett steaming was his team overcoming a 3-0 first period deficit to twice take the lead in the final 20 minutes on a pair of goals by rookie Eli McLaughlin. His second

of the night came midway through the third and Delta seemed poised for victory behind the stellar goaltending of Peter Dubenski. However, a poor pass in the offensive zone and an ensuing penalty on the Adanacs’ transition resulted in them pulling even on the power play. The winner came 65 seconds later from Wesley Berg.

tennis club

Tsawwassen Tennis Club will be hosting the seventh annual Bob Putnam Junior Challenger Tournament this weekend. The Tennis B.C. sanctioned event annually attracts about 70 youth, competing in the U12, U14, U16 and U18 age categories. “We’re proud to have a Tennis B.C. tournament right here in Tsawwassen,” says tournament director Paul Marsden. “It is a showcase of up-and-coming junior talent plus it’s great tennis to watch.” Since the tournament is officially sanctioned by Tennis B.C., the results are counted toward each player’s ranking. “We hear from parents and kids every year that this is their favourite summer tournament,” continued Marsden. “An army of club member volunteers help to ensure that both parents and participants enjoy the tournament.” The public is welcome to watch the juniors compete. Matches occur at the Tsawwassen Tennis Club (286 English Bluff Road) and at Brandrith Park on Saturday and Sunday.

Kanerva named to national team for Junior Pan Am tourney behind Argentina, Chile and the USA. However, in the past year this squad has proven their ability to defeat formidable Pan Am opponents. At the recent 3 Nations Tournament in Vancouver, Canada was victorious over Team Chile and Team USA. They were undefeated against Chile, conceding only one match to the Americans and winAndrew Kanerva ning the other two. “We have had a competitive build up to Guadalajara, and

Tides at Tsawwassen Pacific Standard Time. Height in feet

we are focused on winning each match. We will do our best to qualify for the Junior World Cup,” says head coach Mathias Ahrens. “As we prepare, every player in the program has made significant steps forward in the performance. They have given their all, and selecting the final roster for the Junior Pan Ams was a very difficult task. The 18-player roster features 16 from B.C. “We are now entering the final phase in our preparation, and we are focused on stabilizing some critical aspects of our game,” Ahrens added. “We are focused and ready to win our matches against the tough opposition at the Junior Pan American

Championships.” Short corners... Tsawwassen’s Emma Mackie, Sam McComb and Krista Jensen helped Team B.C. Blue capture gold at the recent U18 National Championships in Calgary. B.C. capped an impressive run with a 4-1 victory over Ontatio in the final. McComb scored two of the goals, including the game winner. B.C.’s overall depth was reflected in the three participating teams. Other local players to represent the province included Cassidy Bremner (Team B.C. White), Elizabeth Pritchard (Team B.C. Yellow) and Cailean Meredith (Team B.C. Yellow).

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your romantic, pleasure-oriented, risk-taking mood continues. Children please. You’ll see beauty, nature’s poetic magic. Sunday’s for short trips, siblings, news, errands – a friendly, good day. (Write a work-related memo, or appeal to a loved one for understanding.) Home’s a tough go for you, 2010 to now (ultimately, to Oct. 5) – then improvement comes. So tough it out Monday to Wednesday morn, seek the “why” – could be your secrecy, or financial faults. Change demanded. Wednesday p.m. is romantic but erratic: Thursday/Friday bring a stable attraction. To work, Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent continues on home, property, parent/kid relations, security, foundations and retirement. Mother Nature plays a role: gardening brings joy. Rest, nap, indulge a sluggish feeling. Pursue money opportunities, balance the books, or purchase long-lasting items Sunday (before 2:49 p.m. PDT, 5:49 EDT, etc.). Machines/ tools bought this day (especially in the a.m.) will “last forever.” Casual friends, siblings, and your ability to communicate – these have been under pressure or “gummed up” since 2010 – and are again, Monday to early Wednesday. October will bring a solution. Gemini May 21-June 20: Errands, communications, paperwork, short trips, siblings and casual friends – these fill your days, especially Wednesday to Friday. Be curious, explore, ask questions. You’re the star Sunday: romance is stable yet warm; or flirty yet ungraspable. Money has been a problem since 2010, perhaps even since 2008; you might have less now. (Sex, or the desire for change, is at the bottom of this.) The main problem will begin to dissolve by October, but caution is needed until then – e.g., Monday to Wednesday noon, when you might be torn between small fast money and big/distant.

August 10, 2012 The Delta Optimist

Cancer June 21-July 22: Lie low, rest Sunday – a great day for contemplating career situations, and for mending or renovating your home and/or your marriage. Be charitable, spiritual. Your energy roars back Monday to Wednesday – though you’ll need it to overcome the various glitches: technological or electrical Monday, career or home Tuesday. These days also bring a relationship trend to a minor peak: realize charm and affection are one of the best ways to deal with a stubborn person/situation. Be cautious with money Wednesday, chase it Thursday/Friday. Friends and travel Saturday. You’re attractive! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness run high! Get out, start important projects, make contact, ask favours. Your optimism, popularity and joy reach skyward Sunday (though little of import occurs). Be cautious and diplomatic Monday to Wednesday noon – your energy ebbs, and links with government, head office and health institutions are under stress, have been for several years. Much of this will lighten by October, some solutions will appear. The “deeper problem” involves health, laziness vs. work. You’re the star Wednesday noon to Friday: someone’s attracted! Money luck Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Be restful, eat and dress sensibly. Protect your health. Avoid the bustling crowds, competitive situations. Your ambitions succeed Sunday. Your social life has been subject to baffling glitches and “empty periods” since 2010. This pall will lift in October, and by next summer your popularity will be re-established in big, joyous ways. The underlying problem? Volatility in financial and sexual zones has left you uncertain about who/what to “attach to.” This led to tension – the enemy of popularity. Contemplate this Monday-Wednesday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The accent remains on optimism, popularity, social delights, entertainment, flirtation and wish fulfillment – enjoy, especially Wednesday noon to Friday. Sunday’s mellow, wise, offers relationship harmony. For the past few years, your career has struggled and presented you with inexplicable glitches, just as it does this Monday to Wednesday. The root “cause” has been a shifting home or lack of a solid foundation (family support?) coupled with relationship volatility. The career problem will largely end by Oct. 5 onward (though the volatility and “shifting home” won’t). Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: March forth on ambitious fronts, especially Wednesday afternoon to Friday. Lifestyle and health changes go well Sunday, as do intimacy and finances. You can find a workable plan. Good day to invest in large machinery. Monday to Wednesday highlights your major problem this decade: glitches and barriers in educational, ethical, publishing, legal, cultural or international (far travel) zones. Root cause: changeable work conditions and/or stress. The good news is, these problems will shrink by half from October onward. (There isn’t any bad news.) Saturday brings hope, joy! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is a lovely, smooth and enlightening week, except for the Monday to Wednesday period, when problems (re)erupt in sexual, financial, research, diagnostic, health and/or lifestyle areas. These problems are likely not new – some have been around since 2008, some since 2010. The difficulties will be reduced by half from Oct. 5 onward – the same date marks a “new future” for you, in the sense that a wet blanket lifts off your social, romantic situations, and you will grow much more optimistic. Decide now, between quick or delayed money, casual or committed intimacy.

August 12 - 18, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The mystery continues, so be a detective. You have 10 days to find all the clues or “evidence.” The accent lies on depths, sexual urges, financial manoeuvres, lifestyle changes, commitments and consequences. Wednesday noon to Friday highlight these concerns, then Saturday brings understanding – you see all these (sex, finances, et al) in a bigger picture. Tackle chores Sunday – you’ll succeed easily. This week’s only challenges arise in relationships Monday to Wednesday: be diplomatic, realize others hold the “temporary aces.” Root of the problem: your security is erratic. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A great week! Sunday’s romantic, Wednesday to Saturday bring exciting meetings, perhaps new love. But Monday to Wednesday brings a flare-up of employment and health problems that have irritated you for a few years. Avoid wonky wiring, dangerous machinery. Seek a diagnosis. A government agency will either help or obstruct you. Nervous stress (probably associated with travel, friends, or a legal or cultural matter) is at the root of those work or health problems. Stress strips us of emotional feeling and sensation, two necessities. By October, the problems will ebb to half. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The main accent lies on work, health, machinery and dependents. You can take good steps forward in these zones Wednesday noon to Friday morning. (Aug. 12, too, if a dependent is involved.) For a few years, romance, creativity and risky ventures have run into brick walls. Some of these walls will crumble by October. Meanwhile, you can get yourself ready for future love, pleasure, creativity, etc., by seeing what is throwing up these walls: desire for money is the main “brick-builder.” (By summer 2013 onward, lucky love, creativity, will re-enter.) A friend, a prospect, Saturday! • Reading: 604-560-1269
