The latest census figures show Delta continues to grey faster than the rest of Canada. Stats Canada this week released population numbers broken down by age group and gender. While Delta’s senior contingent isn’t anywhere near as high as Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island, where a whopping 47.2 per cent of the population is 65 and over, it’s still above the national average, and getting older. According to Stats Canada, the percentage of Delta’s population 65 and over stood at 15.5 per cent in 2011, compared to the national average of 14.8 per cent. The 65 and over category in Delta increased by 21.9 per cent from the census five years earlier, well above the 14.1 per cent rise nationally. Meanwhile, the 0 to 14 age group in Delta saw a 5.9 per cent drop from the previous census, while the 15 to 64 group saw a modest increase of 2.3 per cent. Delta’s overall population stood at 99,865 in 2011, a 3,235 increase from 2006. The median age in Delta in 2011 was 42.8, almost two years older than the last census. In comparison, the median age in B.C. in 2011 was 41.9, while Canada was 40.6. Earlier this year Delta council approved the creation of a seniors advisory committee aimed at providing seniors with input into municipal services, to identify shortfalls and to respond to development applications that might have a benefit to an aging population. It’s chair is Mayor Lois Jackson, first elected to council in See GREYING page 3

The 65 and over age group in Delta increased to 15.5 per cent of the population. That age group will almost double in less than 20 years.

Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington voted against the implementation of a new statutory holiday in the province this week. On Tuesday, B.C. MLAs threw their support behind Family Day, which will fall on the second Monday of February starting next year. While the legislation passed by a large margin, Huntington and two other MLAs, fellow independents Bob Simpson and John van Dongen, voted against it. Huntington said while she found to difficult to vote against giving people a mid-winter statutory holiday, she feels it will put even more pressure on the province’s small and mediumsized businesses. “These holidays can also cause hardship, especially in our present economic climate,” she said, adding Family Day will cost the average small business more than $1,135 in wages alone. That extra cost, on top of three minimum wage increases in a year and the transition back to the GST/PST system, makes for a difficult situation for many small business owners, she said. “All of this is at a time when margins are already slim, if not downright thin,” she said in the legislature on Tuesday. Huntington said she would support establishing a new holiday in B.C. if the economy was stronger and more stable. “But this is not the case at this point in history,” she said. “Right now my support must necessarily lean to the small and medium-sized businesses of my community.”

age and processing in the Lower Mainland, according to the memo. “For Delta, in particular, the conservation of agricultural land is a primary concern and, in terms of industrial land, container storage does not always constitute the optimal use, economically or aesthetically.” On another front, the NDP’s provincial council recently endorsed a motion to oppose the establishment of a foreign trade zone in South Delta. The establishment of a special zone is likely to result in a further loss of Delta’s prime farmland and change the character of the community, said Nic Slater, the party’s candidate for Delta South.

Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington presented a 2,000-signature petition to the legislature Wednesday opposing industrial development plans for prime farmland near Deltaport. Huntington initiated the petition in South Delta soon after revealing that optionto-purchase agreements have been signed on 558 acres in the Agricultural Land Reserve adjacent to Tsawwassen First Nation lands that are also to be developed. The independent MLA said the land was optioned for nearly $100 million on behalf of a port industry consortium including CN Rail, CP Rail Western Stevedoring, along with Carrix, a Seattle-based terminal and railway operator. Speaking to the legislature before presenting her petition, Huntington called on her fellow politicians to listen to the public: “When those whom we represent say, ‘Stop, you have gone too far,’ our obligation is to listen.”

know the other mayors throughout the province are concerned about the continual downloading of responsibility without any additional money to carry out the services. We’re going to be looking closely at the needs and how that’s tracked and who will provide the services for seniors,” Jackson said. The lack of housing variety for seniors wanting to downsize or “age in place” has been much talked about in the past couple of years. During the Tsawwassen

backlash to a proposed growth plan. As far as health care, a Fraser Health report presented to Delta council last fall noted the number of seniors is expected to rise to about 28 per cent of the population by 2030. In contrast, the proportion of residents under the age of 19 is expected to drop significantly. The Delta Hospital Foundation says an aging population requires more specialized and extensive health care services. The

foundation says Delta already has higher rates for dementia among the elderly than any other area of Fraser Health. The foundation notes the hospital has begun to add services to meet the challenges of chronic diseases of the elderly, including starting a memory clinic. The hospital also has a pilot project, Palliative Dementia Education, to increase the skill of staff to meet the needs of people living and dying with dementia.

Delta council wants a proposal to build an inland container terminal at Ashcroft revived and receive serious consideration. Civic politicians this week unanimously endorsed a motion by Mayor Lois Jackson to once again voice support for the proposed inland container terminal near the interior community Jackson said the proposal was brought forward several years ago but received little in the way of meaningful consideration or consultation by government, even though it makes sense on many levels. “This really could help

us tremendously save our farmland, create jobs in the interior and it makes just abundant sense reducing the number of trucks on our roads,” said the five-term mayor. In 2008, council received a request from the mayor of the Village of Ashcroft to provide a letter of support for the establishment of an inland container port in that community. The proposed site is 450 acres of flat, industriallyzoned land 260 kilometres from Vancouver. It is serviced by both CN Rail and CP Rail main lines and is close to the TransCanada Highway. There is capacity to store over 140,000 containers. A memo to council by

She said questions need to be answered on how and who will assist the growing number of seniors struggling with health and financial issues, those with no family or those that can’t afford to stay in their homes. “What I want to pursue and try to establish is just what are the core services

of the provincial government and the federal government as it relates to seniors. What we so often at the local level do is see a need and if it’s not being filled we will try to help,” she said. “But if you look at the core services that we provide at local levels, we don’t have a component that is a core service that is for seniors and social services. So, it is a problem and I

Will & Power of Attorney Have you prepared your Will? The Society of Notaries Public of BC conducted a province-wide poll just over a year ago and found that, on average, only 51% of British Columbians aged 18+ have a current and legal Will. A properly executed Will can create certainty of our intentions for the distribution of assets and personal effects, the guardianship of minor children and pets, the responsibility for carrying out our wishes (an executor), and other vital details such as funeral arrangements. When someone dies without a Will, it can create additional grief for family and friends. Without a Will, any one of the heirs may apply to the court to administer the estate. If the other heirs do not agree with this appointment— or if no one steps up—by law the office of the BC Public Guardian and Trustee must manage the estate and charge a fee for the work. Some people face years of financial expense and time to unravel a loved one’s finances. To those left behind to handle the paperwork, a Will is priceless. In my experience, most people are relieved after they make a Will and are surprised at how easy the process is.Will-planning and the related discussions among loved ones can open important channels of communication, bring people closer, and create more certainty and peace of mind for all. If you would like to discuss preparing a Will or refer a family member or friend, please contact my office or myself directly.

The current Delta remuneration rate had fallen

New foundation ED has big shoes to fill

Successor found for Teresa Cooper, who is leaving Delta Hospital in July after a most productive seven years The Delta Hospital Foundation board of directors will be saying farewell to Teresa Cooper at the end of July. The board has completed the search for a replacement and has selected Veronica Carroll, previously chief executive officer of the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, as the organization’s new executive director. “I believe passionately about the mission of the foundation and the role of the hospital in the community,” said Cooper. “The impact of this community’s support of Delta Hospital is immense. I feel honoured to have been part of the wonderful improvements that have been made for health care here in our community.” Cooper’s legacy is impressive. Through extensive collaboration with the board and staff, she has been instrumental in: • Advocating and raising funds for a CT scanner; • Completion of the expanded emergency department;

Delta Hospital Foundation executive director Teresa Cooper is flanked by members of the Delta Agricultural Society at the 2010 Delta Health Golf Classic. • Expanding surgical daycare unit with third operating room; • Opening of the state-ofthe-art endoscopy suite; and • Delta Hospital’s return to acute care status. “Identifying with the cause is an essential criterion for an effective leader and Teresa embodies this,” said Lois Wilkinson, chair of the Delta Hospital Foundation board, on behalf of the foundation’s board and staff. Cooper arrived at a criti-

cal time of change for the foundation as it transitioned from saving the hospital to growing it. “Under her leadership the little hospital that could moved to where Delta Hospital is now, a preferred location for medical staff to practice,” said Wilkinson. “We, as a community, have been the beneficiaries of Teresa’s efforts over the past seven years that she has been the executive director of the foundation. “We have seen amazing

changes at our hospital. She has prepared us to move to the next level where we will see an even greater expansion of the facilities here

at Delta Hospital. She will be greatly missed but her legacy will never be forgotten.” Wilkinson said the board

has complete confidence that Carroll is the right person to be the next executive director. “Her 25 years working with non-profits have been marked by outstanding performance. She has demonstrated remarkable talent and sound judgment in her past roles and we a are thrilled to have her on board to lead Delta Hospital and the foundation in preparing for future needs of this community and our donors.” The foundation will be hosting an open house to provide an opportunity for the community to wish Cooper well and thank her. Information on this event will be posted closer to the date.

Metro Vancouver offering tips so water not wasted on lawns this summer Here are some tips from Metro Vancouver to minimize the quantity of water that’s wasted on lawns: • A healthy lawn only needs to be watered for one hour, once a week, or less if it rains. • Most lawns only need 2.5 cm or one inch of water each week. Put an empty tuna can out on the lawn when you sprinkle. Turn off the sprinkler when the tuna can is full of water. • Water your lawns and gardens early in the morning to reduce evaporation. • Leave grass clippings on your lawn. This reduces evaporation and the need to water your lawn. • Replace lawns with ornamental grasses and other drought-resistant plants that require little or no regular watering. • Some residents are choosing to let their lawn go dormant during the summer. When it rains again, a yellow lawn “greens up” after just a few days of cloudy, wet weather. More information is available on the regional district’s website, www.metrovancouver.org.

Lawn sprinkling restrictions go into effect today around region

Watering limited to three mornings a week until the end of September A region-wide ban on lawn sprinkling during summer evenings comes into effect today. Mornings-only lawn sprinkling regulations adopted by all municipalities in Metro Vancouver, including Delta, will help the regional district deliver enough water throughout the region during peak demand periods. The demand for water doubles during the hottest days of summer, to as much as two billion litres a day. “Our mountain-fresh water is precious,” said Metro board chair Greg

noted. “Please don’t waste water on lawns.” Darrell Mussatto, chair of Metro Vancouver’s utilities committee, said morning-only lawn sprinkling will help reduce the demand for water during evenings. Lawn sprinkling is no longer permitted during evenings, when the demand for water for dishwashers, clothes washing, showers and other domestic uses is at its daily peak. “Because air temperatures are lower, less water is lost to evaporation when sprinkling in the morning,” Mussatto said. “This will conserve our water and help flatten the spikes in water consumption during summer evenings. If businesses and residents continue to conserve water, Metro Vancouver can push back the date when we have to build higher dams, bigger pumping stations and bigger water mains. Morning-only lawn sprinkling will help minimize additional costs, for both taxpayers and the environment.”

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW Delta is putting our money where its mouth is when it comes to heritage preservation. There has been much hand wringing over the last couple of years as heritage buildings in these parts have either come down or been earmarked for demolition. Many people have lamented the loss of these structures, concerned that Delta is collectively sitting on its hands as links to our past are disappearing. Well, civic politicians are doing something about it now and we’re on the hook for the tab, which could run as high as $600,000 to relocate and eventually modify the century-old Harris Barn after it’s moved from a Ladner farm to the grounds of the Kirkland House on Arthur Drive. Whether you think it’s a tremendous idea or a colossal waste of money, what this project does is underscore the steep price attached to preserving these pioneer structures. It struck me as an awful lot of money to save an old barn, although I’ll readily admit I’m blissfully ignorant of the intricacies of such an undertaking. As parks, recreation and culture director Ken Kuntz alluded to, Delta has to pick its spots when it comes to heritage preservation. It goes without saying there are only so many $600,000 projects the municipality can afford, while at the same time there are a finite number of buildings, heritage or otherwise, that are needed to be turned into public venues. If you can get past the price tag, this one is not a bad spot to pick as the barn, once moved, will be a nice addition to the Kirkland House grounds. Having another structure on the property will allow for a greater variety of functions and will complement the Edwardian farm house, the restoration of which has been a labour of love for the good folks of the Kirkland House Foundation. It’s clear, however, that Delta’s not going to be able to find half a million bucks or more every time a century-old structure is in peril. And I suspect after this costly venture that civic officials might also have a greater appreciation when private property owners apply for demolition permits after pointing to the often-prohibitive costs of restoring their buildings. Heritage preservation is like a lot of issues — green space and improved transit immediately come to mind — that government wrestles with on a regular basis: We want it, but we’re not always prepared to pay for it. Delta is bucking up in a big way this time around, but I’m afraid it’s a shortterm answer to a long-term predicament.

Community plan is in jeopardy due to unsolved traffic issues DOUG HUSBAND

COMMUNITY COMMENT Our back yard borders the historic Burr farm, separated only by Crescent Slough. This land has been successfully farmed by one pioneering family for well in excess of 100 years. We enjoy the changing landscape of crop farming and the timeless view of the North Shore mountains. The only scar on the horizon is Highway 99 and endless vehicular traffic as it plunges into and exits the George Massey Tunnel. This crossing had its critics at the outset in the 1950s and remains a major focus today. Delta commuters remain largely vehicle dependant as public transit is directed to larger population centres. Destination times can vary greatly dependant on time, weather and driver error. There are numerous suggestions to improve visibility in the tunnel and Victoria has been approached

many times to white tile the grungy cement walls to no avail. Make no mistake, the greatest factor is human error. Besides evident congestion, there is a lack of courtesy and unsafe lane changes. Have we forgotten, or do we simply ignore, the single solid line in the tunnel that prohibits lane changes? It’s ironic that in the years following the opening of the tunnel, the RCMP had a major presence and detachment head office at the north end. There were regular radar checks to slow speeders and check for lane changes. It now seems the control of the tunnel is left to the “honour system” and drivers are to police themselves. We can agree there is the inevitability of congestion at both ends of the tunnel at peak times. The tunnel will soon be 53 years old and traffic planners could never have anticipated the explosive growth south and east of the Fraser River. With the exception of the South Fraser Perimeter Road, governments only respond to traffic when there is a crisis. There is no way to expand the existing tunnel. The Steveston Highway overpass can and should be redesigned and a second northbound exit lane to

Richmond would alleviate the backup into the tunnel. Digressing for a moment, you should note all crossings of the Fraser River were “tolled” when opened and remained in place until the “commuter” had paid the capital costs. This included the tunnel and Oak Street Bridge as well as the Pattullo and Lions Gate bridges. Any suggestion to “re-toll” the existing crossings should be strongly resisted. It is simply not acceptable to improve congestion at the tunnel without addressing the Oak Street Bridge and its backup. Traffic issues have always had a profile and have never been greater than now. Victoria has offloaded all trucking through Delta to Vancouver Island, compounded by exponential trucking growth to service Delta’s expanding port system. The impact of large development in Surrey will have a major affect on commute times for struggling Delta drivers. Somewhere out there is a liveable community plan that is in great jeopardy because of unsolved traffic issues. As outrageously expensive as it is, the SFPR is not a solution to the relentless traffic spurred by unchecked growth. And a good night to you, Phil.

June 1, 2012 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

Plenty of letters for council

Editor: Appended to this week’s (May 28) Delta council meeting agenda are 82 very thoughtful and articulate letters to mayor and council from a cross section of Delta residents expressing their views on the Southlands development application. Residents that don’t regularly follow council might not know that all letters addressed to mayor and council are appended to the council meeting agenda that is posted on Delta’s website on the Thursday before scheduled council meetings the following Monday. To navigate from

Delta’s home page, www. corp.delta.bc.ca , click on Current Council Agenda, scroll down to Correspondence for Information (External), and click on the highlighted item number. A summary of all correspondence will appear and a copy of each letter, along with the reply from Delta, can be seen by scrolling down the page. Most letters are dealt with by municipal staff but they are public information once they are posted on the website and, like letters to the editor, they provide a fascinating glimpse into community affairs and the issues that are currently in

the public mind. The May 28 council meeting letters concerning the Southlands are of particular interest since of the 82, only six are in favour of the development. By the time this is printed, the May 28 meeting may be a Previous Regular Council Meeting. To see the agenda and read the correspondence: from Delta’s home page click on Council Meetings and Workshops, Previous Regular Council Meeting Agendas, the year (2012), the month (May), and the day of the meeting (in this case, May 28), and proceed as above.

Driver thanks vandals for big repair bill

Editor: I’m a resident of 53A Street in Tsawwassen and was woken up by Delta police at about 4:15 a.m. on May 30 and told that my vehicle, which was parked on the road, was vandalized. I would hereby like to thank the kids that decided to smash my windshield and damage my driver side mirror. You did a really good job. Since I only carry basic

insurance on it and it wasn’t a hit and run, I have to cover the damage, which

TESSA

Sweet, silly Tessa was found in Ladner near a horse barn. She was wandering around and looked lost and hungry. After knocking on a few doors and not being able to find owners, she was brought in to the shelter. We were not able to find any identification on her and she did not appear to be spayed. We tried to see if anyone had called about her or posted her missing photo, but no luck. We have now sent Tessa in to be spayed and tattooed, she is up to date on all her vaccinations and anxiously awaiting her new forever home. We are still getting to know this petite, silly and intelligent kitty and believe that she would thrive in a primarily indoor home without any young children (as she gets very frisky when being petted).

Five students advance to provincial heritage fair

Club partners with Dueck GM for unique fundraiser The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen has once again partnered with Dueck GM for a unique fundraiser for the service club called Test Drive Tsawwassen. The Richmond dealership will be setting up shop for the day on Sunday, June 3 in Tsawwassen to help raise needed funds for the Rotary club and give local residents the opportunity to both see and drive a wide variety of 2012 cars and

trucks. The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the TD Canada Trust parking lot at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall. For every person that comes down to take a test drive around town in one of the new GM vehicles, Dueck will donate $25 to the club. In 2011, there were over 270 test drives taken, with over $6,200 donated by Dueck to the Rotary club.

There is no cost to take a spin, all you need is a valid driver’s licence. Dueck GM staff will be on hand to show the vehicles and answer any questions. This year, there will be a maximum of 300 test drives, so residents are urged to come early to get a spot. The club will receive a possible $7,500 donation and it hopes to reach this amount to help fund its philanthropic activities.

ness.” (Proverbs 16:31). Old people, who have “walked their talk” in following Jesus, are a wise and grace-filled resource. They are the green renewable resource to their families, their communities of faith and to the wider community. So how can we be responsible stewards of this resource of experience, expertise and wisdom, and provide regular opportunities for younger and older people to get to know each other? It’s called community, and I believe the church can serve the wider community by being places where generations continually interact; where elders declare the power of God to the next generation. Are we ready for this? Feel free to contact Paul at pastor@stdavidsdelta.com.

Canada is soon approaching the demographic reality when old people will outnumber young people. The economic implications are usually the focus of this trend, with the attendant ominous scenarios to which the phrase “tipping point” alludes. But please consider the following from the Bible: “Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.” (Psalm 71:18) The “old and gray” have an important calling, to be a voice of wisdom and hope to the next generation, speaking from their own real and personal relationship with God. “Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteous-

Getting ready for camp

Preparing For Camp Are you ready to have the child leave home?Does he/she want to go to camp? Is he/she prepared to leave home? What do both of you expect of camping? Are the expectations mutually understood and mutually agreeable? Before Camp Your Attitude Your attitude toward the camping experience is equally as important as what the experiences at the camp itself might be. Be sure that you are ready to have your child leave home, that you trust him/her to be on his/her own, that you are not fearful of the risks and possible mishaps connected with camping. Talk about camping as a happy adventure — be positive at all times. Do not discuss “homesickness,” and caution well meaning friends and relatives to avoid the subject. While homesickness can be a very real thing, you might actually be planting a thought that may never otherwise occur to the child. Let’s see that we, as adults, do not create this anxiety before the child ever gets to camp. If your child does get homesick at camp, do not aggravate the situation with apprehensive letters or phone calls, but let it be worked out with the cooperation of the leaders and the camp director. Camp directors and camp staff deal with homesickness every summer — they will have a variety of solutions to make your child’s stay enjoyable

Jump into the adventure and let friendship fill each day. Experience a world of discovery, all with an amazing staff.

WEST-COAST SUMMER! ENJOY THE BEST OF A CANADIAN

You can help prepare your kids for camp through friendly chats. — speak with them about this, they may well call you for advice as well if the child is not responding to these solutions. Health Knowledge Health knowledge is a very important factor in successful camping. Be sure that your child is well and attend to potential problems before sending your child to camp. Be honest in your comments about your child’s health. Remember that you and the camp directors are equally interested in your child’s welfare, and that both are working together to see that the summer is pleasant, enjoyable, and profitable. If your child has been exposed to any contagious diseases just prior to arrival, be sure to discuss this with the camp director before bringing the child to camp. It is unfair to expose all the other campers to a commu-

nicable disease. Perhaps your child may be a “picky” eater, have a “nervous” stomach, or be a “bed wetter”. Whatever it may be, make a note of it on the medical form. None of these things are problems, when the directors know about them. Friendly Chats You can do much to prepare your child for the new and uncertain, yet highly rewarding experiences that will be encountered at camp through friendly chats about things that might seem different. You will think of many things to talk about, but here are a few to start you off: Darkness: You might mention the difference between the bright lights in the city at night and the quiet beauty of star-studded evenings in the country, sit Continued on page 16

Continued from page 15 -ting around the camp fire at night will seem exciting and different to youngsters. Noises: Normal city noises of sirens, buses, horns and airplanes will be exchanged for the sounds of small animals, the chirping of crickets and owls hooting. Space: Undeveloped land is becoming a thing of the past. At camp, however, children have acres and acres for playing and hiking. It may be a child’s first encounter with space, and this new world may seem very large. We adults have a tendency to forget that things we long ago accepted will still be adjustments for children. Children: Mention that there are different kinds of children, and that it will require “give and take” to get along — to make friends and to get the most out of living at camp. Religion: People have different religious beliefs and customs, but each has a right to believe in his or her own way. Security: Security lies within a person, him or

herself, that camping is not a personality, athletic or endurance contest, but that it is a place which encourages self confidence in people for what they are, as individuals, and not by comparisons. Money Management Some camps offer opportunities to purchase items while at camp while others do not operate stores and discourage campers from bringing money with them. Check with the camp. At Camp Arrival Day Assuming that you are driving your child to camp, be sure to meet the director first and find out what is expected of you. Generally this will consist of meeting the leaders who will be directly in charge of your child, going on a tour of the camp with them, depositing your child’s belongings at the proper place, and leaving the camp without prolonged involvement or farewells. If other parents seem to be unpacking or making beds, ask your child’s counsellor if there is anything you can do. You do not

want to embarrass your new camper. With just a moment’s silent observation, you will be surprised how wellequipped your child is to take care of himself/herself right from the start. Much of this self-assurance on your part will stem directly from the fact that you will have agreed with your child that he or she will find the answers to any questions or problems merely by asking the leaders. Please be sure to let the camp decide where and with whom your child will be living. You know your child very well, but the director knows group living and camping and where your youngster will fit in best. Why? The director will have learned a great deal about your child and will have evaluated the information in order to make the best cabin or tent placement. Phone Calls Determine what the camp’s guidelines are regarding communication to and from home while camp is in session.

Camp selection isn’t easy

Selecting a Camp You will play a very important role in the success of your child’s camping experience from the moment you think about camp, to making the camp selection, preparing for camp, the experience itself, and the post-camp incorporation of the experience into your family’s home and social life. In selecting a camp there are four main factors to be considered. These are (1) knowledge of the camp selected, (2) the expectations you and your child have for camp, (3) the camper, and (4) an awareness that the people who direct the camp are far more important than the equipment, buildings, and facilities advertised. Camp Activities Most camps offer a combination of the following activities but not necessarily all of them. Consult the individual camp for specific program information. Archery, Arts & Crafts,

Last year’s Tsawwassen Shrine Club salmon barbecue, which saw the group dish out more than 1,800 servings of salmon, had great weather. This year’s barbecue goes from noon to 5:30 p.m. (or until the salmon runs out) on Sunday.

Annual salmon BBQ is back Local Shrine club will cook up over 2,000 pounds of fish

T

he Tsawwassen Shrine Club’s 43rd annual salmon barbecue takes place this Sunday at Ladner Harbour Park. It’s “one of the largest salmon barbecues in the Lower Mainland,” says Shrine club member Michael Cruise. The club brings in over 2,000 pounds of salmon for the annual fundraiser, which is the group’s main event of the year. Cruise notes last year’s barbecue was a good one with guests enjoying beautiful weather and the club dishing out over 1,800 salmon servings. While the cost of salmon goes up each year, Cruise explains, the club tries to keep its prices the same as a thank you to the community for supporting Tsawwassen Shrine Club charities. “We are offering the best value for the

price that customers pay,” he notes. Meals include a generous portion of salmon (around eight to 10 ounces), coleslaw, French fries, a bun with butter, coffee or juice. Refreshments like Coke or ginger ale are available for extra cost. Proceeds from the barbecue help support the Delta Hospital and the Shriner Care Cruiser program for children. The care cruiser program is the only one of its kind in North America. In B.C., the program provides coaches that travel throughout the province. Each coach is modified to comfortably transport physically challenged children and their parents to B.C. Children’s Hospital, Victoria General Hospital, Sunny Hill Hospital as well as the Shrine Hospital in Portland, Oregon.

The overall annual cost of the program is more than $1.5 million but there is no cost to the patient or government. In 2005, the organization pledged to donate $75,000 towards the construction of the pediatric care and observation room in the emergency department at Delta Hospital. Since its construction in 2006, the room has acted as a special place for kids. It displays unique artwork and colourful murals with the purpose of brightening the spirits and easing the stress of for child patients. In the past four decades the club has also contributed over $285,000 to local community projects. The North American Shriners also support and maintain 22 hospitals for the benefit of physically challenged children.

The hospitals provide orthopedic care and burn and spinal cord injury care at no charge. The nearest hospitals to the Lower Mainland are in Spokane and Portland. The Tsawwassen Shrine Club’s salmon barbecue runs from noon to 5:30 p.m. (or until the supply of salmon runs out) on Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets will be available at the entrance to Ladner Harbour Park on the day of the barbecue. To buy tickets in advance, call 604-943-3548. The barbecue takes place rain or shine. The club provides takeout if it’s raining. Access to Ladner Harbour Park is via the 5100-block of River Road. For more information on the Shriners, visit www.shriners.bc.ca.

Well on Your Way

For That Special Someone... Happy 40th Anniversary Mom and Dad

June 3, 1972

“I am not looking for abs of steel,” my loving husband told me recently. “Aluminum would be just fine for me.” Whether you seek a sixpack, or merely the ability to see your feet when you look down, you need to understand that great looking abs do not actually happen in the gym. One of my favourite say-

ings I got off of Twitter is, “Abs are made in the kitchen,” and it is very true. It’s what kind of food and how much food we put in our mouth that will actually dictate the size of the ol’ midsection. Exercise is simply the icing on the cake (oops, probably not the best metaphor), whereas clean eating is what will get you looking like a Greek God. One such belly-busting move I adhere to is eating lots of green veggies. They act as a natural diuretic and they fill me up without adding a lot of calories.

bilize our blood sugars (livestrong.com), which is crucial for anyone looking to lose weight. Some examples of lean protein are: Greek-style yogurt, protein powders, lean chicken and turkey, eggs, soy, cheese, nut butters, beans and seafood. Stay away from white bread, white rice and white pasta. Sorry, but if you want a six-pack, these are nonnegotiable (which is why my loving husband is OK with abs of aluminum; he still wants to have his cake and eat it too). And if you are really hard-core and are trying to get cut for an event, you need to eliminate those three completely from your diet — white, whole grain or otherwise. In addition to steering clear of sugar, which is not only great for your abs but also for the rest of you, you should avoid fake sugars. Our bodies were not designed to process these chemicals and as a result they take longer to process and break down, leading to bloating. A couple of other pieces of advice to avoid bloating and hindering those abs from peeking through are to not eat too fast and to avoid carbonated beverages. Both can cause gas to get trapped in your belly, making you look a little more rounded in the belly area. Finally, this is when you add exercise. Intense cardio and weight training will burn the calories and a good ab routine will tone the muscles. P.J. Wren is a local personal trainer and writer in the Delta area. She can be reached at www.fitnesswithpj.com. You can also work out with her three times a week on Delta TV.

I like to eat a decent size plate of food and not feel deprived, and adding green veggies helps. Whether it’s spinach, kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts or asparagus, I make a point of eating these foods — and programming them into my weight loss client’s diets — on a regular basis. If you want to see your abs, you also have to start reading your food labels. Stay away from products with ingredients that you can’t pronounce and steer clear of foods high in sugar and sodium. A great tip that I give my clients is to remember that every four grams of sugar they are ingesting is equal to one teaspoon of sugar. This helps them visualize how much sugar is in a serving. Thirty grams may not seem like much, but almost eight teaspoons does, and hopefully keeps them from buying that food. Since the kitchen is where great abs are made, then you need to spend some time in there. Prepare and make as many of your own foods as you can. I used to hate cooking, but in the last five years I have embraced it and I now prep all of my breakfasts and lunches every Sunday, and meal plan our dinners on the calendar. Several studies have also proven that drinking green tea can help with weight loss. Apparently the catechins in green tea help stimulate the body to burn calories (webmd.com). Great abs also love lean protein. Incorporate a lean source with every meal. Foods higher in protein take longer to move through the intestines and, as a result, make us feel fuller for longer. They also help sta-

John Diefenbaker (prime minister from 1957 to 1963) noted the “tremendous energy, enthusiasm and initiative” of young people concerned about pollution. Diefenbaker approached the House of Commons with the concept of setting one week a year aside to focus on environmental issues. Later that same year, Delta MP Tom Goode pursued Diefenbaker’s idea by introducing a bill to designate a Canadian National Pollution Awareness Week. The bill was passed based on considerable support from the public and all political parties. Royal assent was given in March 1971. To draw attention to all aspects of a healthy environment, the name Canadian National Environment Week was chosen for the initiative that continues today.

This special day was designated by the United Nations in 1972 to stimulate action on the environment and empower people from every corner of the globe to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development. Canadian Environment Week also includes several other significant dates: Clean Air Day (June 6) Clean Air Day raises awareness and encourages action on clean air and climate change issues. Canadians can show their commitment by participating in activities that contribute to cleaner air, healthier communities and a better quality of life for all. The transportation sector is a major contributor of air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions. For Clean Air Day, why not renew or begin a commitment to sustainable transportation?

bring dinnerware (utensils) or use a Frisbee as a plate. It’s good for the environment and good for your health (running after it) afterwards. 3. While it is tempting, try not to open the door of your oven when using it. It reduces the oven temperature, therefore wasting precious energy. 4. Instead of washing your car yourself, take it to a car wash. This saves more water than you think. 5. Turn your yard into a sanctuary for local wildlife by planting wild flowers, supplying water and setting up a bird feeder. 6. Use cedar chips instead of mothballs. Not only do they smell better, but they are better for the environment too. There are chemicals in mothballs that can harm animals, our environment and us if used incorrectly. 7. Turn your thermostat down by a couple of degrees. You may find that you do not even notice the difference. 8. Plant trees to shade your house. This will minimize your air conditioning costs in the summer. 9. Install compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) wherever possible, for maximum energy and money savings. 10. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. This will help save hundreds of litres of water annually. 11. Organize a clothing swap. Clear out unwanted clothing items from your closet and exchange them with friends and family in a special event or just for fun. This is a great way to renew your wardrobe, while at the same time saving money. Remember, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. 12. Wash your clothes using cold water. Many detergents clean just as well in cold water. At Work 1. Ask your employer if you can do flexible work hours or telecommute. The more cars we keep off the road, the better. 2. Instead of wrapping your lunch in aluminum foil or saran wrap, use reusable containers. 3. Instead of throwing out your old computers, TVs, VCRs, stereos and fax machines, reuse, refurbish or recycle them. Ask retailers if they have take-back programs for used electronics or contact your munici-

pality for drop-off locations. For cellular devices, please visit the www. recyclemycell.ca website to find out where you can drop them off. 4. Take public transit or carpool. Not only will you help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it will save you money on fuel. Join the Commuter Challenge. 5. Turn off your hard drive when you are not using your computer. This will double its life and save energy. 6. Reduce the amount of bottled water you drink. Bring your own mug for coffee or tea. Every time you use a reusable mug, you are saving one disposable cup. Anytime, Anywhere 1. Volunteer at a local charity that focuses on the environment. You can search for registered Canadian charities on the Canada Revenue Agency website: www.cra.gc.ca 2. Go for a picnic in a forest or natural reserve near you. This Canadian Environment Week, simply enjoy the many pleasures that Canada’s forests have to offer. 3. Participate in an activity to celebrate Canadian Environment Week. Check out Environment Canada’s Facebook page for an activity happening in your community. If there are no events happening in your community, why not organize your own? 4. To avoid pollution and harm to wildlife from plastic bag litter, always keep a reusable shopping bag handy. Bring eco-friendly reusable bags when you shop. These long-lasting bags are made from canvas, cotton, linen or hemp. Unlike their plastic cousins, they will not spend an eternity in landfills. 5. Consider alternatives such as baking soda, vinegar and water to traditional household cleaning products. This is not only cheaper, but can be better for your health. 6. Walk short distances to the mailbox, local video or grocery store, and school. Exercise, enjoy the outdoors, and save fuel and greenhouse gas emissions. 7. Did you know that open burning of garbage (i.e., in barrels, open pits, outdoor furnaces, woodstoves or fireplaces) releases a hazardous mixture of cancer-causing compounds and other toxic substances?

Nelson school lands Ice Hawk standouts

Cody Fidgett & John Proctor to continue their hockey careers at Selkirk College this fall A pair of graduating players from the Delta Ice Hawks, who had significant roles in the club’s run to the Pacific International Junior Hockey League championship this spring, will be continuing their careers in the Kootenays. Forwards Cody Fidgett and John Proctor are among the Selkirk College’s recruiting class for the 2012/2013 season. The Nelson campus plays in the B.C Intercollegiate Hockey League. “John and Cody both bring championship experience with a top-end junior organization in Delta,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “John is a big, strong player with a high skill level who always competes hard and Cody is a dynamic guy offensively who was probably the best skater in Junior ‘B’ hockey this past season. I’m very pleased that John and Cody have chosen to take the next step in their academic and hockey careers.” Proctor, a 6-foot-4 winger, scored 16 times and totalled 41 points in 36 regular season games this past season and tacked on another 14 points in 23 playoff contests. Over three-plus junior seasons split between the Ice Hawks and North Delta Devils,

the Port Moody native scored 43 goals and totalled 93 points in 116 games. He also saw 49 games of post-season action, including a trip to the PIJHL finals in 2010, picking up 18 points overall. “I’m very excited to attend Selkirk College this fall to further my education and continue to play the sport I love at a competitive and high level,” says Proctor, who lists his size, shot and playmaking ability amongst his strengths. “I’m a good teammate who always puts the team first. I also consider myself a disciplined agitator; I draw a lot of penalties but rarely take any myself.” “After winning the 2012 leaque championship with the Delta Ice Hawks, I’m hungry to win another at Selkirk. I am also looking forward to going back to school in a disciplined but positive and fun environment.” Fidgett, a 5-foot-11 winger, netted 16 goals and 28 points in 33 regular season games before leading the Ice Hawks with 24 points in 19 PIJHL postseason appearances and six points in four games at the Cyclone Taylor Cup. In 109 games with the Ice Hawks over three-plus seasons, Fidgett scored 55 goals and totalled 87 points in

towards a degree in business.” Proctor and Fidgett are the 12th and 13th players to commit to the Saints for the 2012/13 season. They join a group that includes Aldergrove’s Thomas Hardy who shared PIJHL scoring honours with the Ice Hawks Spencer Traher.

Delta rowers turn in strong performances at own regatta ing last September which makes her achievement even more impressive. Earlier, DDRC was at Lake Stevens in Washington State where the club came through with eight top three

performances, including four wins and a second place finish. The rowers then moved onto the highly competitive Brentwood Regatta which typically attracts top clubs

from throughout the Pacific Northwest. Despite Delta’s small numbers, the locals earned three top three results, including second place finishes in women’s dou-

DSS tennis team cracks top 10 at provincial “AAA” tournament The Delta Pacers tennis team wrapped up an outstanding season with a ninth place finish at last weekend’s Provincial “AAA” Championships. With the team featuring plenty of novice level players, the season far exceeded expectations. The Pacers were also the top finisher among competing Fraser Valley schools. “The success of this year’s team was spurred by some of our strongest players anchoring the team through consistent wins, complemented by our younger players who won some pivotal matches

where it most counted,” said Pacers coach Gordon Browne. “The team’s parent volunteers also played an important role in our path to the Provincials and the dedication of everyone involved was essential to our success this year.” The team includes captains Jennie Jackson and Kyle Browne; along with Alex Santos, Amir Athwal, Adrian Tanskanen, Matt Jackson, Chris Jackson, Jessica Steinwand, Christine Soares, Ashley Kusumoto, Wendel Vistan, Cyrus Kohlmetz, Bonnie Shao and Joslin O’Brian.

McKINNON - Harold George Dec. 26, 1927 - May 24, 2012 'When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground' - African proverb Beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother and Friend, Harold George McKinnon passed away at St Paul’s Hospital on May 24, 2012 after an unexpected illness. Missing him are his devoted and much loved wife of 57 years, Beverly; beloved children Sandra (Dr. Jim Christenson) and Scott (Dr. Cathy Chovaz); and adored grandchildren Carrie, Spencer, Emma and Aaron. Predeceased by infant son Douglas. Harold was the 2nd youngest of his family, and is survived by his sister Shirley, predeceased by his 6 elder brothers and sisters. A long time employee of the City of Calgary, he enjoyed retirement and many happy active years in Tsawwassen, BC. He was a lifelong learner, never one to shirk a new challenge. Dad was always the one to solve our unsolvable riddles, and provide answers to life’s questions, both mundane and complex. He was, and continues to be, deeply loved by us every day, and we will always carry in our hearts his deep love for us. While we are sad he is not with us, we take great comfort in the manner of his passing peaceful, painless, dignified, and surrounded by love. We want to thank the staff of St Paul’s ER, ICU and Healthy Heart program for all their efforts and the kindness shown to our family, and to Dr. Martin Ray and the staff of View Medical for many years of care. There will be no service at his request; a memorial will be planned at a future date. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the Delta Hospital Foundation or the St Paul’s Hospital Foundation.

Obituaries

POTRZEBOWSKI, Edmund June 16, 1926 - May 22, 2012 It is with great sadness that we bid our final farewell to beloved Edmund Potrzebowski of Tsawwassen, husband of Danuta, father to Jolanta and Margaret and grandfather to Matthew. Edmund was born in Chorzow, Poland. While pursuing his degrees in Economics and in Physical Education, he persevered in his passion for track and field. Edmund’s hard work, discipline and exceptional work ethics brought him well deserved recognition as an outstanding athlete. After Edmund stopped competing he worked as a coach in Cuba and Mexico. The whole family cherished the opportunity to travel to foreign countries, getting to know people, places and languages. Upon Edmund’s retirement from working in Mexico he and Danuta joined their daughters in Canada where he made his home for the last 19 years. Edmund’s life was marked by dedication to his professional career and loyalty and devotion to his family. He loved his quiet life. Reading, swimming, spending some family time, walking Mickey (the dog) and collecting stamps seemed to give Edmund contentment. Edmund was a principled man with unwavering personal integrity. In all of his life circumstances he remained true to himself, unassuming, humble, respectful and honourable. Edmund’s life came to an end as a result of complications from dementia. Edmund will be sorely missed. His legacy will go on. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Dr. Krawchuk for her involvement in Edmund’s care, and deep appreciation for the dedication of the staff at the Kin Village Care Home. The burial service will take place on Sunday, June 3rd at 2pm at the Boundary Bay Cemetery in Tsawwassen. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to Kin Village Care Home in Tsawwassen.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Continue to rest, retreat – be alone, to enjoy the peace, to think clearly, and to accomplish and make plans while others dance for the pied piper of others’ approval. Tackle chores and protect your health (eat, dress sensibly) Sunday/Monday. All’s well, but avoid unsafe use of machinery in/around home Monday. Relationships succeed in every way Tuesday/Wednesday, except one: marriage, partnership. Be diplomatic. Life’s mysteries rise to the surface Thursday (problems – careful driving, and with machinery) and Friday (success) – a powerful (but forbidden?) attraction might occur. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on friendships, groups, wish fulfillment, entertainment, and light romance (which might become deep). Sunday/Monday emphasize the intense side of these areas, and could cause a mild dilemma: do you opt for light or powerful romance? For independent creativity, or “creation by committee?” If things do intensify, let them. Only money, or emotional possessiveness, can ruin results (Monday and Thursday). Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday. (Be careful with electricity – and your back.) Love, exciting meetings, new vistas, great opportunities arrive, Thursday to Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The focus lies on your career, worldly standing, prestige relationships, and dealings with authorities. Be careful, prudent this week, for Sunday/Monday and Thursday could trigger hasty reactions on all sides. Otherwise, this is a productive, good week, especially Thursday (avoid temper, hasty investments) through Saturday, when your work efforts meet with splendid success, and could, by Saturday, introduce you to meaningful new relationships or opportunities. Earlier, Sunday and Monday are for home, family, security, nature. Your romantic, beauty-oriented side surfaces midweek.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

Aries March 21 - April 19: The emphasis remains on trips, visits, talks, emails, news media, casual friends and siblings, curiosity and information. Delays exist, but affection graces all (well, most) interactions. A wise, loving mood descends upon you Sunday and Monday – two lucky days, if you can leave work to one side. (Careful with machines and driving – Thursday too.) Your ambitions come into clear focus Tuesday/ Wednesday. The barrier you feel is a relationship barrier; as long as someone doesn’t accept you, a career advance might be hard to gain. Thursday on, popularity, optimism and joy visit you! Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent remains on money, buying/selling, earnings, clients, possessions – and sensual attractions. Sunday/ Monday, your finances lean toward long-term objectives: investments, debt reduction (or increase) money-sharing, etc. Be bold Sunday, mildly careful Monday. A wise, gentle, understanding mood drifts over you Tuesday/Wednesday. Don’t force home/ domestic matters either evening. Your ambitions awaken Thursday/Friday – avoid bending any legal/ ethical rules (and avoid those who do) – your efforts could strike gold, or earn a VIP’s praise! Joy, friends Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness ride the crest of a wave! Get out, start important projects, ask favours, express love if you feel it – in all, avoid selfish or ultraindependent actions/moods. (This advice applies until Aug. 30.) You’ll be reminded of others’ presence Sunday/Monday, when relationships occupy centre stage. Exciting meetings, challenges/opposition, opportunities, partnerships, even love are possible. But both days (and Thursday) hint that your home, or your hopes about home, property, can block a bonding. Love, joy, travel late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The things you love gently pull your sleeve this week: far travel, international ideas and communications, law and justice, learning, culture and compassionate love. Try a foreign film or a play. (DO NOT start a lawsuit before September.) Casual friends, siblings, short trips, paperwork and communications fill Sunday/Monday.These two days, and Thursday, point to a flaw in a new or burgeoning relationship: this person might have too much power over you, subtly restricts or burdens you, etc. Retreat to contemplate this, midweek. Thursday to Saturday: romance, creative urges, beauty! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mysteries, secrets, research, detective work – mighty changes which can turn the course of your life – powerful sexual urges, high intuition, financial courage – these fill this week and next. To succeed, keep honesty and moral goodness in your fist. (Without these, success occurs, but itself forms the first step toward traps and loss. Remember this advice through August.) This week, work demands or co-workers might interfere with your progress: act when free of these. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Trips, talk midweek. Thursday to Saturday brings a triumph on family, realty fronts. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, clout and pizzazz ride high Sunday/Monday – but it’s only so you can be more attractive when you propose joining up with others. Maintain a diplomatic, friendly approach, but do approach. Chase money – carefully – Tuesday/Wednesday. Thursday to Saturday bring travel, errands, casual friends, siblings, news and curiosity. You and another might start a friendly romance; someone might aid you in home or real estate. A Gemini now can change your life; an Aries might disrupt it. All week, protect your career position with a simple potion: gentleness, humour.

June 3 - 9, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Tackle chores. Sleep properly, and protect your health from seasonal complaints. Continue to avoid legal suits. Retreat, contemplate and plan Sunday/Monday. Some of your ideas could be brilliant, especially in areas of labour and career. Your energy and charisma return somewhat midweek – your home/family hold surprises (and you’re tense there) so train your efforts on career, prestige, document and educational fronts. Spend, chase money Thursday to Saturday – luck accompanies you! But buy no machinery, computer or auto. All week, diplomatically sidestep opinionated people. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A love affair might have begun recently, or could this week. It’s quite likely that your “amour” stumbles over speech, acts nervous, or has a temper (or a critical side). You need to decide whether to fuse together, or to wait until someone else wanders down the path. I have no advice: only that, if your motives are pure, this affair should be fine. It certainly has a sexy side. Your popularity and optimism soar Sunday/Monday. A wish might come true! Retreat, find rest and solitude Tuesday/ Wednesday. Your energy, charisma and clout surge Thursday to Saturday – start something! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent remains on home, property, family, nature, nutrition and soul. Be restful – this is a bit of a hibernation time. Your luck in real estate grows – to June 2013. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday, but deftly avoid money discussions (Thursday also) especially with a partner or prospective client. Your hopes rise – so does your popularity – Tuesday/Wednesday. But take care both evenings, as monetary or sensual disappointment can occur. Retreat Thursday to noon Saturday – lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Though you’re tired, your luck soars in home, realty, love and art. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
