Pink-clad students, 260 in all, take part in flash mob at Ladner’s Delta Secondary BY


Two hundred and sixty students took part in a flash mob at Delta Secondary Tuesday morning to take a stand against bullying. Organized by the Ladner high school’s dance academy, the students performed a three-minute choreographed number to the song Make the World Move in front of delighted fellow students in the cafeteria. Rebecca Salton, the academy’s teacher co-ordinator, said in addi-

tion to the dance students and those from the school’s leadership class, pupils from Holly, Hawthorne and South Park elementary schools took part in the dance. She noted that the students learned the moves over the course of six weeks. “What’s more complicated than the choreography and the steps was the actual spacing and the timing in the cafeteria, because we never actually had to rehearse with all of these students at one time in the cafeteria. Then, of

course, we had to make sure there was room for the audience,” Salton said. She laughed the hardest part of the event was keeping it a secret, since those taking part were excited. Salton said when it comes to bullying, communication is the most important thing. “I think that sometimes students might feel hesitant to speak to adults because of the social pressures of being a teenager. I think what needs to happen is we need to have a shift in our society,

that it’s OK, and that the person standing up to the bully isn’t a rat or a geek. “With social media and texting, bullying happens in different ways than when I went to school. It’s not just someone getting shoved into a locker anymore.” Some of the elementary school students from Tuesday also took part in a recent anti-bullying themed flash mob during a Vancouver Giants’ game at Pacific Coliseum, a dance that involved roughly 2,000 Lower Mainland students.

Delta students are taking a stand against the growing trend of cyber-bullying. High school students across the district had a special reminder for their peers on Pink Shirt Day Wednesday with the message that online and text bullying must stop. In addition to many wearing pink shirts and wrist bands, students encouraged others to download a screensaver to their cell phones to act as a reminder to take a proactive stand against bullying every time they use their phones. The initiative is called Wrap the Ribbon, highlighted by the screensaver image of a bright pink ribbon and a dove. Many students at Delta Secondary in Ladner participated, hoping to get the word out that cyber-bullying is on the rise and should not be tolerated. “We want them to know everyone is doing what they can to stop it and it’s something that shouldn’t be in our schools anyway,” said Grade 11 student Bianca Corea. A member of the school’s leadership committee, Corea said she and many of her friends know someone who has been bullied in some way, including online. Jill Colley of Delta Opposing Violence Everywhere and school board chairperson Laura Dixon were both on hand Wednesday. Colley said cyber-bullying is on the rise because more people than ever have quick access to social media. She also said online bullies also find it easier to attack with anonymity.

Colourful visitor spotted in tree OWL volunteer does a double-take after coming across a peacock perched along rural road in East Ladner BY


South Delta is recognized around the world as an important stopover for many species of birds — but this colourful character is certainly not one of them. Local resident Bruce Hutchison couldn’t believe his eyes last week when he saw a peacock in Ladner, perched majestically in a tree as if it owned the place. Hutchison is a volunteer with OWL and was on his way to the East Ladner bird

rehabilitation centre when he noticed the colourful bird sitting on a branch near 64th Street and 36th Avenue. He got out of his car to take some photos, wondering how the bird got there and where it came from. “At first I thought it was an eagle, but it looked odd. Then I looked up and I noticed it was a peacock. We don’t have any zoos around here, so maybe it came from some farm. Someone is missing a peacock,” he said.


This peacock was spotted near 64th Street and 36th Avenue last week.

The species is native to India, Pakistan, western China, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, but can be seen in these parts at zoos. Hutchison said he wonders if the bird could fly, saying it would have been difficult to get so high on a tree if its wings were clipped. He said at least two other people noticed the bird. Delta Community Animal Shelter manager Sarah Lowe said the shelter hadn’t received any reports of missing peacocks.

Businesses not ready for return of PST President of B.C. Chamber says ‘confusion will reign supreme’ BY

Glendinning sentencing postponed BY



“Confusion will reign supreme” as the province transitions away from the harmonized sales tax, says the president and CEO of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. John Winter, who was the guest speaker at a Delta Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Tuesday, said it’s been estimated by the Ministry of Finance that 100,000 businesses have yet to register to collect provincial sales tax on April 1. “It’s a concern. But I think the reality is come April 1 all hell is going to break loose no matter what happens because confusion will reign supreme,” Winter told the audience at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn. “If you think elimination of the penny was cause for some grief in some scenarios, you ain’t seen nothing yet, in my opinion.” The government promised to drop the controversial tax after a majority of voters in a 2011 referendum chose to return to the old PST/GST model. He noted businesses are responsibile to collect taxes for governments and have

The Greater Vancouver Zoo isn’t missing any peacocks, said general manager Jody Henderson, who noted a hobby farmer probably owns the bird in question. She said there are quite a few peacocks out there as pets. It’s still possible for them to end up in high places, even when their wings are clipped, she noted. Hutchison hasn’t seen the mystery bird since last Tuesday, but is sure it’s not joining others on the Pacific Flyway.



John Winter, president and CEO of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce, was the guest speaker at a Delta Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday in Tsawwassen. a legal obligation to do so. He said if they don’t do it properly, they’re breaking the law. Winter later added that because of the switch back to the provincial sales tax the business community of B.C. is facing the largest single tax increase that’s ever been imposed. He estimated the increase would

be $1.5 billion. Winter also discussed a joint initiative between the provincial chamber and the Business Council of B.C. called the B.C. Agenda for Shared Prosperity. “Unfortunately it appears that British Columbians are no longer making the link between provincial economic growth and personal

wellbeing. And in some cases, even if they do make the link, they’re not buying the argument.” Winter said the goal is to reconnect British Columbians and B.C. communities with the link that does exist between economic prosperity and personal family prosperity. An advisory coun-

cil, including former Tsawwassen First Nation chief Kim Baird, has been formed as part of the initiative. A summit, with a keynote address from former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd, is planned for April 5 in Vancouver. More information on the plan can be found at http://

Sentencing in the sexrelated charges against a former Tsawwassen resident has been delayed. Earlier this year, Jamieson Richard (Rick) Glendinning entered guilty pleas in Surrey Provincial Court on three counts of indecent assault — two against other males and one against a female. The alleged incidents took place in Delta and Surrey, and all date back to the 1970s. He also pleaded guilty to a charge of failing to appear in court. He was spotted in Australia last fall and returned to the Lower Mainland in October. Glendinning was first arrested by Delta police and charged in September 2010. He was arrested again in November of that year after more alleged victims contacted investigators. Glendinning, 63, had a decade-long affiliation with Tsawwassen Amateur Baseball Association between 1985 and 1995. Sentencing was originally set for March 8, however, due to medial issues, it has been adjourned to May 17.

abandoning marketplace idea

Meeting next week to discuss proposals to revitalize Ladner waterfront BY


Delta is hosting a public information meeting next Thursday on proposed bylaws aimed at revitalizing the Ladner waterfront. The information session at the Ladner Community Centre will give residents a chance to ask questions from civic staff about the proposed regulations, which include increasing the maximum allowable height for buildings on the north side of Chisholm Street from two storeys to twoand-a-half storeys and on the south side from two to four storeys. The guidelines, which include streetscape improvements, are to add pedestrian-oriented commercial, recreational and public uses, with office and residential uses above the first storey. The bylaws are to go to Delta council for preliminary approval this spring, followed by a public hearing. The municipality is moving forward with revitalization plans despite the glaring omission of key waterfront properties that were originally viewed as catalyst for change in the area. Last fall, Delta abandoned a proposal for a marketplace on the civic-owned

land occupied the Seven Seas building and adjacent Delta-owned site. After much discussion and analysis, including many meetings held by Delta’s downtown waterfront advisory committee, the municipality announced the selection of Quay Property Management to submit a detailed proposal for the redevelopment of the properties. At the time, Delta said the company’s submission was consistent with the vision for the waterfront identified by the committee. That vision included restaurants, shops, galleries and

other amenities. Quay Property Management is behind some well-known markets, including the Tsawwassen Quay at the ferry terminal and Lonsdale Quay in the North Shore. CAO George Harvie said the decision to not go ahead was made after staff toured the area with a top real estate developer in the country. Harvie said the developer’s recommendation, given the current economic climate, was for Delta to concentrate on making changes to the Official Community Plan to try and give potential devel-

opers an outline to follow. As well, Harvie said, the Quay Property Management proposal would require an additional $2 million from the municipality, which raised the risk for Delta. He said the advisory committee would continue its work. Civic staff is also looking into a number of issues, including whether Delta should lease or sell the land. The public information meeting will run from 5 to 8 p.m. For more information, or to provide feedback, call the community planning department at 604946-3395.

LBA hopeful harbour becomes drawing card SANDOR GYARMATI

Delta hopes that incentives, including raising building heights along Chisholm Street, will attract investment to the Ladner waterfront.

It’s disappointing the Delta-owned Seven Seas site on the Ladner waterfront won’t be redeveloped for now, but it’s important to move ahead with bylaws aimed at revitalizing the area. That’s what former Ladner Business Association president Brad Cooper had to say about a deal falling through between Delta and Quay Property Management for the Seven Seas and adjacent municipal properties, although Delta is moving forward with proposed bylaws to provide incentives for private landowners to redevelop their properties. Cooper, a member of the downtown waterfront revitalization committee and the LBA’s harbour development committee, said talk of changing the area

to attract visitors and new businesses has been going on for more than 30 years, so it’s time to finally move ahead. “Right now, you can put up a sign to say visit historic Ladnder, and you kind of go, ‘Visit what?’ If you live here, we all want to shop local and take advantage of the village, but if you’re going to get someone off that highway, there’s got to be something compelling to come off for,” said Cooper. Delta council had a workshop last month to discuss potential financial incentives for redevelopment, including a property tax freeze, the waiving of permit and application fees, as well a big reduction in development cost charges for new mixed-use or commercial development construction. Those incentives would be in addition to new design guidelines that have been put forward.

“I hope that a thoughtful process is going to take place that is going to make it that if there’s going to be some new businesses that will come in, they can be viable. I don’t like the idea of business coming in and it’s so hard because there’s no draw,” Cooper said. He noted the timing may not be right for the Seven Seas site, but he doesn’t see it sitting vacant for the long-term. “We were always hoping the harbour would become that anchor for drawing people into the village and supporting the local businesses. They’re the folks who are going to be the hardest hit with a lot of things going on — with the TFN development and, to some degree, the South Fraser Perimeter Road swinging around the village.” Saying the Seven Seas redevelopment is stalled

Brad Cooper Need reason to visit because the deal was getting too rich for Delta’s liking, as well as potentially harming the existing commercial activity, Coun. Robert Campbell said it’s important to take a step back. “It’s going to take some more work. I really don’t know what will happen. It really is a gem, but what to do with it, polish it and make it shine is really the problem at this point,” he said.

A local father fighting to reduce the instances of impaired driving in B.C. in memory of his little girl was recently honoured with a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. Michael Middelaer was one of 10 B.C. residents recently presented with the medal in recognition of their significant contributions and service to fellow citizens. “Today, we’re recognizing truly outstanding and inspiring British Columbians who’ve helped families and communities across our province,” said Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond. “Hard work, dedication and compassion for others are really what being a British Columbian is all about. We’re very lucky to be able to call these recipients our own in B.C. and it’s an absolute honour to meet them in person and share in this special recognition event.” Middelaer and his wife

MURPHY’S LAW It should hardly come as a surprise that the Delta Visitor Centre saw the number of warm bodies walking through the front door decrease for the third straight year in 2012. That’s not a knock on the centre and its staff, or a reflection on the attractions in these parts, but rather a simple recognition of the ever-evolving way in which tourists gather information about the places they visit. It wasn’t that many years ago that planning a trip to pretty much anywhere in North America necessitated, at least for me, a stop at the nearest BCAA office to pick up guidebooks and maps. These were integral tools in figuring out not only how to get there but what I’d find upon arrival. These guidebooks were a treasure trove of information, listing hotels, restaurants, attractions and more in one indispensable and, invariably, dogeared package. I enjoyed flipping through them for hours in anticipation of a holiday, although I must admit I can’t remember the last time I cracked one open. The Internet has, in many respects, made the guidebook obsolete, while GPS and smart phones have done the same to the printed map. As for the traditional visitor centre, there’s still value in hometown hospitality and insider knowledge, but there’s no denying it too has been impacted by the technological revolution. Just as customers are now more informed when they show up in stores thanks to the Internet, travellers are better versed in their destination before they ever leave home. It only stands to reason that fewer of them would then need assistance once they hit the ground. I suspect the Delta Visitor Centre, along with others throughout the province and beyond, will have to adapt to maintain their relevance. In Delta’s case, fewer people coming through the front door doesn’t necessarily equate to fewer visitors to the area or a reduced need to promote local attractions and businesses. In the 21st century visitors are accessing information in a different way, so that means the Delta Chamber of Commercerun centre must cater to that new reality. Its enhanced web presence is a good start and will likely be the building block of future initiatives. Up until now the effectiveness of a visitor centre has largely been measured by the number of people that walk through its doors, but I suspect page views and individual users will replace that kind of calculation. We still need to attract and cater to tourists, but technology dictates we do that in a different way.

Voting for an independent is vote for stronger democracy

Vaughan Lyon

GUEST EDITORIAL The warm-up to the May provincial election is underway. It is not too soon to consider how we will cast our ballots. We can do the same old thing, choosing one “promising” party or another, or signal our long-standing desire for constituency representation by voting for independent candidates, and an end to party rule, where we can. Our existing system is, for all the rhetoric claiming otherwise, fundamentally undemocratic. In it we are “forced” to delegate our political rights and responsibilities to one or other party engaged in continuous corrupting adversarial politics as they struggle for office. With government playing a large and, inevitably, an expanding role in our lives, it is essential we have more control of it. Each vote for an independent candidate will move us a step closer to a legislature dominated by “independent” MLAs who are responsible to their voters rather than to a party leader. A different system of representation that features independent-ofparty MLAs free to deliberate with

constituents would put the responsibility for public policy where it belongs — with us. Of course, for this system to function properly that deliberation would have to be properly organized. A start has already been made in transferring power from political elites to informed citizens. Three of our most thoughtful MLAs, people unwilling to play “follow the leader” (Vicki Huntington, Bob Simpson and John van Dongen) have already thrown off party shackles to better represent their constituents. Now they need reinforcements in the form of more independent MLAs and properly organized elected local assemblies to work with them. Many MLAs, party and nonparty, already meet regularly with interested citizens. But these meetings have no clout. People attending cannot claim to represent other citizens. Further, they have no time or special access to information that would enable them to deliberate in depth with their MLA on an equal footing. These problems can be overcome easily and the door opened to a significant democratization of the system of representation. In B.C., we have already experienced a form of deliberative democracy with the Citizens’

Assembly on Electoral Reform and, earlier, the short-lived Community Resource Boards. In addition, we have adopted recall and referenda legislation. These show the direction in which we want to move. Now is the time to do something more fundamental: i.e., to start replacing party conflict in the legislature with informed debate on public issues by “free” MLAs pursuing the public interest as defined by us, not by party. We will not be wasting our vote or letting the “wrong” party get into office if we vote for good independent candidates in the next provincial election. Rather, we will be doing something extremely meaningful with our vote. We will be “saying” that we want to rid B.C. of an exciting but dysfunctional political system, to bequeath to our children and future generations a system that reflects our democratic values and supports truly representative governments.

March 1, 2013 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

Students left out of the equation Editor: On Jan. 28, I attended a meeting with other parents, school trustees and school board personnel because of a recent announcement from the minister of education informing every school district in B.C. that their transportation funding will be significantly decreased. The minister has used a “one-size-fits-all” formula (disregarding a geography to population density ratio) in determining what each district is to receive to transport students to school. The result is Delta is one of the hardest hit, left to manage a 47 per cent decrease in its transportation budget. It is important to understand the intention of the meeting was to find ways the district could reduce transportation costs while

still providing our bussed students with safe transportation. I commend everyone at the meeting for coming up with innovative ideas and supporting every student that depends on this system to get to their respective schools. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the minister and his office. I can only imagine the hardships of the many families that this decision will impact but I am acutely aware about how this decision will affect my own daughter Rachel. Rachel has attended school in Ladner since kindergarten and currently receives exceptional care in Grade 11 at DSS. She has an uncommon genetic disorder that has left her globally developmen-

tally delayed and medically fragile. She has a seizure disorder, is non-verbal, cannot feed or toilet herself and has required multiple surgeries over her life, the most recent of which required a full body cast and months of therapy so she could learn to walk again. As may be expected, she requires constant vigilance to be kept safe. Rachel does not live with us any longer as she requires 24-hour care. Choosing to foster our child was the hardest decision we have ever made. Although she is well taken care of and has a wonderful home now, Ladner will always be her real home. If her bus route were cancelled, it would be extremely difficult to get

her to Ladner everyday. If she had to change schools, I truly believe her safety would be compromised and our community would lose a very important member. I ask you, as citizens of Delta as well as anyone who knows children in this community, to write to our minister of education. Please ask him to reconsider his formula and remind him the numbers he is putting in his formula are our children. Encourage him to look into this issue with all the facts for each community considered. Let him know that we are trying to find cost reducing solutions but compromising our children’s safety or ability to attend their school is not something we can entertain. Karan Schwartz

Coal project will bring fugitive dust to area Editor: Re: Surrey Fraser Docks seeking dust-free port, Feb. 20 First off, who’s who? Fraser Surrey Docks came to Delta council; they used to be Fraser River Port Authority. In 2008 they became part of Vancouver Fraser Port Authority now known as Port Metro Vancouver. And who is reviewing this coal project? Port Metro Vancouver. A dust-free coal port? Remember the Optimist photo of the dust storm last April and that was only a

45 km/hr wind gust. Studies show that 500 pounds to one ton of coal escapes as dust per rail car in transit depending on weather conditions. Coal trains from the U.S. are piled well above the top of each rail car maximizing the release of fugitive coal dust. It has been shown that a crust sprayed over the coal breaks up over long journeys (e.g. from coal mines in Wyoming). So it will be pretty ineffective by the time the train comes through Burns Bog let alone the White Rock and

Delta communities. Every time coal is handled, there is an escape of fugitive coal dust. Fraser Surrey Docks will give at least two doses: unloading the rail car into a pit, possible storage on site and then a conveyer belt to a barge. Unless each barge is covered, there will be fugitive dust all down the Fraser River, the greatest salmon river in the world, then all up the Georgia Strait to Texada Island. Coal dust has not only deadly inhalable fine particles that can stay airborne

for days, but also heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium. Add to this diesel emissions from the trains, port equipment and barges. These are some of the reasons coal export projects in the U.S. are held up in thorough environmental and health reviews. And what about global warming? Nobel laureate energy economist Mark Jaccard says this alone means there should be no more coal port expansion in Vancouver. Mary Taitt

Tougher sentence is required Enjoy the ambience of idling cars Editor: who voted affirmatively, to stop those bully parents Re: Tsawwassen Springs by hosting a “high-end”

Editor: Re: Sentence fit crime, court rules in DSS assault appeal, Feb. 27 I reside in Ladner and have come to realize that Ladner is becoming an unsafe community. This man should have been further disgraced and his name released. Everybody blames TV or violent video games for the increase in violence, but I say baloney. A child will do

ultimately what he sees and has seen his parents do. A violent parent breeds violent offspring. A violent, angry grown man showing his children how to deal with problems with weapons of batons and fists is completely over the top. I think he needs to have a much tougher sentence in order to set an example to all the bully parents out there. Patricia McKenna

Cyclist in suburbia finds alternative to status quo

Editor: Somehow I’ve become “that guy”... the one showing up at the office, supermarket or community meeting with sweat on the brow and a mud-spackled safety vest. I am the suburban cyclist — one of several who commute daily along Delta’s roads. I wasn’t always that guy. Like many, I began adulthood with a car — call it “Freedom 18” — quickly leveraging the road network to shuttle myself around. Back then I enjoyed the mobility of the modern chariot, freeing me from making difficult choices about how to live, work and play. It is no surprise the automobile template has reigned supreme. A poster-child for 20th century ideals, the car has become both a “convenience store” on wheels and a commuter’s best friend. Metro Vancouver’s most recent Journey to Work data affirms this, highlighting Deltans’ overwhelming preference for the automobile (78 per cent) over transit (nine per cent) and cycling (one per cent). Fast-forward 20 years, I find myself in the minority — car-less in Tsawwassen — a hinterland heretic, paddling against the current. When I relocated here two years ago, I treated it as a social experiment. “How long can I remain autoindependent?” I mused, with embedded skepticism. After two decades of carfree urban living — from Beantown to Buenos Aires — the formative training was there. So was the defiance. But the truth is, hav-



Patrick Thompson uses a second-hand bike as his mode of transportation. ing a car in those locations would have been more burden than bliss. The inconvenience factor alone played a big part in keeping my carbon footprint small. Living in South Delta would be a different beast. Or so I thought. From the get-go, the context instructed me to get hitched. The sprawling community was heavy on bedrooms; light on jobs, entertainment or industry. Transit supported a wide coverage area, but feebly. Point Roberts gas stations beckoned nearby. Reaching into my toolbox, I responded in the way I knew how. I situated myself close to my base necessities — the grocery store, the bank and the bus. I bought a bicycle at a garage sale and parked it in my vacant stall. I pedaled to work, and everywhere in between, swapping composure for a clumsier version of control.

South Delta

In other words, I figured it out. To be sure, this is not a pronouncement about what others ought to do. Different lifestyles, and life challenges, require different solutions. Rather, it is a testimonial about an alternative to the status quo — one of many that could be piloted by the curious or concerned. The presumption that every adult needs a car manifests itself into many suburban anxieties facing Delta — most acutely, traffic. When lamenting over tunnel congestion or development impacts, remember there’s a 78 per cent chance you are part of the problem. Of course it’s tempting to wish for others to take the initiative, or to raise the drawbridge altogether, but sometimes figuring things out requires individual change and responsibility.

Earthwise to host tea for volunteers

Vinegar volcano!



Grade 6 student Ethan Spencer informed and entertained with his Verocious Vinegar Volcano exhibit at Delta Christian School’s science fair last week. The event saw students from kindergarten to Grade 7 display their projects for family, friends and fellow students.

Little House offering another Heart of a Mother workshop

The Little House Society is once again hosting a workshop aimed at offering help to mothers who have a child struggling with substance abuse. The two-day Heart of a Mother workshop is open to mothers and grandmothers worried about a child’s substance abuse. It aims to answer a number of questions: What is abuse? What is addiction? Does my child

have an addiction disorder? Why is my child doing this? What should I do? What shouldn’t I do? The workshop is facilitated by Janine Nowacka, an addictions counsellor at the Cedars at Cobblehill Treatment Centre on Vancouver Island. She helps participants understand what addiction is, how it affects relationships and how women enable, as well

as some practical strategies for coping and healing. Heart of a Mother runs over two Saturdays, March 16 and 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Little House, 5061-12th Ave., Tsawwassen. The session costs $150, which includes lunch, snacks and materials. For more information, or to register, contact Nancy Lee at or 778-278-5755.

The Earthwise Society is hosting a volunteer tea on Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m. The event will recognize the many dedicated individuals who help make the Earthwise Garden and Farm an exceptional community destination. It will also give new volunteers a chance to meet each other, talk to staff and learn more about the many ways that Earthwise serves the community. At Earthwise Society, many volunteers work together to help things grow, from plants to community. Some people volunteer to share their talents, while for others getting outside and working is a labour of love. Janice Mather has been volunteering with Earthwise for about 18 months. She is a freelance writer who sometimes needs a break from the computer to play among the flowers. “I volunteer at Earthwise because the farm and gardens are irresistibly tranquil and beautiful,” said Mather. “I love being able to see organic growing in action. Last summer, I was able to see organic peaches ripen on the tree, taste gorgeous fresh plums and help connect people with vegetables within minutes of harvesting.” Earthwise welcomes community members that might be interested in volunteering to attend the tea, which will run from 7 to 8 p.m. at 6400-3rd Ave., Tsawwassen. RSVP at or call 604946-9828. For more information about Earthwise Society, visit www.earthwisesociety.

Notice of Surplus Land Following thorough research and review, with the educational needs of the community at the forefront, the Board of Education of School District No. 37 (Delta) has determined its property located at 11582 92 Avenue, Delta to be surplus and no longer required for future educational purposes. The area is currently being used to house a group of portables for the Delview Adult Learning Centre. Disposal of this land will enable creation of a brand new adult learning facility in North Delta. In accordance with Board Policy, upon the passing of a resolution and obtaining necessary approval of the Minister of Education, the Board intends to dispose of the land through a competitive bid process at a future date.

Names: Jon with Joey, Hunter, Trevor, Kari Ann. Ages: Various. Occupation: CEO Investor Relations. What is the activity? Football. Where does this take place? Wednesdays, 5-6pm in the South Delta Recreation Centre Gymnasium. How often do you participate? Every Wednesday. Why did you get involved with this activity? To keep our South Delta Rams Atom Football players active in the off-season. What do you like best about this activity? Family fun! How does it benefit your life? It keeps us active and allows us to have fun with family and friends. What other things do you do to keep active? Snowboarding, football, soccer, baseball and hockey. Did you know that, besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, kids who are physically fit sleep better and are better able to handle physical and emotional challenges – from running to catch a bus to studying for a test. When most adults think of exercise, they imagine working out in the gym – but for kids, exercise means playing and being physically active. In the newly renovated gymnasium at the South Delta Recreation Centre, Open Gym sessions are scheduled on a regular basis. Facility schedule information is available online at or available through any Delta Parks, Recreation & Culture recreation centre.

A day to pray Around the world today, the first of March, the church bells peel, calling people to respond. Together, we are called to still our hearts and pray. Today is known in many homes as the World Day of Prayer. Even without using “religious” or “spiritual” jargon, this is a concept that can change the world. The World Day of Prayer has its roots in a Christian tradition that supports the idea that prayer and action must be inseparable in our daily lives. But what, I wonder, would happen if all the people of the world could gather for a quiet moment together and commit their actions for the building up of the global community. Could we actually put aside our own agendas and pray for the well

being of our neighbours? Would we be able to listen for the cries of the hurting and imprisoned children of the world? This year, the program of prayer is written by a group of women from France. The theme is taken from a text found in Matthew’s Gospel, “I was a stranger and you welcomed me...” As in so many parts of the world, people are on the move and it is increasingly difficult to find safe haven for all. So we gather to pray for all who are seeking refuge for themselves and their families. Gathering to pray is a challenge to us all. Just imagine what we can do ... together.

Domestic Long Hair, White with Grey, Neutered Male Senior, (Approximately 10 years old) Kazoo (named by the shelter) was found as a stray on Annacis Island. He was in very rough shape and in need of some TLC! This lovely man is starting to look fantastic (his coat has no more mats, his eyes are clear and his nose is healing!) Kazoo seems somewhat tolerant of other cats but would most likely thrive in a home where he can be the centre of attention! This guy has been second fiddle for long enough, he deserves someone who will love him for him!

Cassidy Vandop, Sylvia Toekes and Rebecca Spencer take to the stage during rehearsals for Delta Secondary’s production of At the Far End of Town, an adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. The play runs March 5 to 8 at Genesis Theatre.

DSS takes on Dr. Seuss

Students delve into The Lorax with latest production BY



elta Secondary drama students delve into the magical world of Dr. Seuss with At the Far End of Town next week at Genesis

Theatre. The play is an adaptation of the famous author’s children’s book The Lorax. “It’s an environmentally themed play, but the really cool part about it is we started with a book and a cast of 32 and we now have a full-length play,” says teacher and director Rebecca Salton. Rhyming dialogue, songs, dances and rhythm sections have been created as part of the play-building project, she explains. “The idea is we have a book, we have a cast and we take the talents of the students here in the school in the theatre department

and create from there. It’s very unique.” As of last Wednesday work was still being done on the script, says Salton, who is a DSS alumni. “It’s definitely something that’s always changing and evolving.” The story, which sees a boy set out to discover what has happened to all the trees in his town, has an environmental theme to it. “I think it’s really pertinent and relevant to where we are today with global warming. I also think it’s connected to children and it also crosses all age boundaries.” Salton says rehearsals are going well and, like all plays, there are ups and downs. “We have a lot of fun but at the same time it’s definitely hard work.” Grade 11 student Hannah Wheatley plays the Lorax, a character who speaks for the trees in an effort to save them.

She says working on the play-building project has been “a really cool” experience. “We didn’t start off with a script. It was a lot of hard work from everyone but it ended up being really cool. I’m really proud of everybody.” Jessica Van Ryk, who plays a fish, echoed those comments. “It was actually really fun. I thought that everyone put in their ideas ... I think it’s going to turn out really well.” Connolly Twaites, who’s in Grade 12, plays the boy. The character, who is charismatic and cares a lot about helping the environment, is a lot of fun to play, says Twaites. He says the play is basically an expanded version of the original story. “We’ve made characters, we’ve made scenes out of stuff that just wasn’t there. We’ve done a fantastic job on it.” The upcoming play at DSS has a cast

of 32 as well as a crew of 20 to 25 led by technical director Kathleen Morrison. The Lorax, first published in 1971, has been turned into a TV special as well as an animated feature film. The movie was released last year with a cast that included Zac Efron, Danny DeVito and Ed Helms. Dr. Seuss (1904 - 1991) published over 40 children’s books during his career, including Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who! and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! At the Far End of Town runs from March 5 to 8 at 7 p.m. at Genesis Theatre, 500545th Ave., Ladner. Advance tickets cost $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets at the door cost $15 for adults and $13 for students and seniors. Contact the Genesis Theatre box office at 604-940-0069.

Live music in Ladner BY


A new live music night is starting up in Ladner. Organizers Steve Campbell and Don Goodman are behind the initiative, currently running every second Monday evening at the Captain’s Cove Marina and Pub. Campbell’s Delta Highway, which plays a mixed bag of roots, blues, folk and rock, is the host band while the idea is to

bring in guests who can try out material as well as jam. “We’re thinking this could grow,” says Campbell, adding, “if it gets successful, we’ll do it every week.” The organizers are also hoping, in the future, to have young musicians come out and take part in more of an “open mic” event as well as workshops and jams. “We have to get it off the ground first,” says Campbell, who is also the manager of Genesis Theatre

in Ladner. “There are lots of people right here in Ladner that are great musicians,” he adds. “Young people need to rub shoulders with experienced, professional musicians,” says Goodman, who is looking for a sponsor for the music night. The next one is Monday, March 4 from 7 to 11 p.m. at Captain’s Cove Marina and Pub. There is no cover. For more information contact scampbell604@

Tsaw. author to launch new book at Albany Tsawwassen author Matt McCoy will be at Albany Books next month for the official launch of his new novel: The Kid Who Missed The Bus. McCoy will be reading from and signing copies of his novel on Saturday, March 9 from 1 p.m. McCoy is a retired professional hockey player, having spent many years in junior and professional leagues in Europe and the U.S. His novel is a work of fiction but draws upon some of the experiences he had while playing the sport. “The book is receiving a

significant amount of press and endorsements from well-known sportscasters and players all over the continent,” says Michelle Halket, creative director for Central Avenue Publishing. “Matt has created a story that reflects the growth of a man, where one of the central themes in his life happens to be hockey. But it’s the humourous and touching aspects of the story that make it truly engaging to both hockey lovers and nonhockey people alike.” The Kid Who Missed the Bus has received glowing testimonials from Sportsnet

Matt McCoy

broadcaster Christine Simpson, ex-NHL player Corey Spring, and several other acclaimed sports broadcasters and professional hockey players across North America. It will be released on March 5.

Finding cycling nirvana at Le P’tit Train du Nord BY


Optimist contributor


he cycle trail, fringed with wildflowers, licked by lakes and crossed by languid rivers, dawdles in Quebec’s Laurentians under sun-speckled sylvan canopies and lakes. Although there’s one stretch that climbs 221 metres, we hardly notice. Once a humming railway line, the route, fondly named after its moniker, Le P’tit Train du Nord, is the longest linear park in Canada at just over 200 kilometres. Quebec did it right from the get-go. Once the train made its last journey in 1981, the rail bed was one of the first in Canada to be converted into a park. By 1996, the rails disappeared, the tracks became a trail and the route was immediately enjoyed by a new generation with re-designed vacation ideas. For us, “soft adventure” has just been re-designed too. Never has it been so plush. Over two-thirds paved, even the route’s rougher southern section is easily traversed by thin tires. The odyssey begins at bustling Saint-Jérôme, only a half-hour’s drive from Montreal’s Trudeau airport. There we join the battalion of bikers at the Comfort Inn, close to the southern terminus of what was once the Canadian Pacific Railway’s short but sweet northern line. The next morning the historic station hums with colour and energy as vivid lycra-enclosed cyclists of all ages begin their cycle north or wait along with us for the increasingly busy shuttle started by Aline and Maxime Raymond 16 years ago. Operating out of a railway icon, an old red caboose, they offer bike rentals, luggage transport, and a bike and passenger shuttle service to the northern terminus of MontLaurier with stops en route as requested. This morning 12 of us crowd into the bus, 10 going to Mont-Laurier and two hardy cousins exiting at Mont-Tremblant Tourist Village, for the 91kilometre return. Two hours later, our coterie is in Mont-Laurier, buy-

There are many ways to experience Le P’tit Train, and Jean-Claude Lancup from Voyageur B & B in Mont-Tremblant has come up with a great way to package them all. He organizes tours lasting from two to six days, booking small quality inns (auberges) along the route, arranging for dinners, and coordinating daily luggage pickup and delivery to each venue, so cyclists can concentrate solely on the trail and leave the pleasures at the end of each day to gently unfold. One such pleasure was the creation he served us for breakfast, a spicy pork pâté that’s one of Quebec’s gifts to the world. The most popular of the itineraries, the Classical, consists of three nights and four days, but le Baladeur, the one we chose, gives us two extra days of bliss: why be in a hurry to leave heaven? The word embraces the fine art of meandering, something we learned to do extremely well, whether it was cooling off in the region’s ubiquitous lakes and rivers, or picking wild raspberries, or feeding curious horses, or stopping at the many renovated old railway stations. At Kilometre 145, Nominingue Station offers a sliver of railway history

wedged between the visitor centre and the craft shop. At Kilometre 107, we scoop up strawberry shortcake on the deck at Labelle Station, watching children clambering up on the old red caboose. At others we picnic at shady tables, fill up with cold drinking water and chat with knowledgeable bilingual volunteers. Many towns along the way offer further pleasures, and never do we seem to be further than a bicycle pump’s toss away from lakeside seats, toilets, picnic shelters or drinking water. Like the railway stations, every auberge has its own flavour, from sylvan at La Croisee des Chemins, to historic at the 120-year-old Auberge de la Gare, where a dégustation (sampling) of delicious fruity Belgian beers on the deck is a perfect finish to a hot day. Chez Ignace, an extra bonus after an easy day’s cycle on Day 2, is another highlight. After swimming and canoeing in Nominingue Lake across from the inn, we return to a connoisseur’s cornucopia served up by Ignace, a chef and hotelier with a venerable Belgian pedigree in the hospitality industry. On Day 6, we roll back to Saint-Jérôme and its welcoming outdoor restaurants and within minutes we’re raising our glazed glasses to the trip that has re-defined soft adventure.

Mazda builds a better British roadster Modeled after Lotus Elan, Miata:s engineers equip it with modern-day character BY


If you want to know when the retro-revolution in new-car design began, look no further than the Mazda Miata, the little roadster

that turned an aging design into a modern art form. We’ve all seen Miatas. For years now those small, two-seat, cute-as-a-bugin-a-rug convertibles have been seen cruising busy freeways, bounding along

twitchy two-lane rural roads and darting in and out of traffic as if weaving some imaginary giant basket. Since 1989, the Miata has meant magic to drivers of relatively modest means. And it has done so with

a style all its own ... sort of. Since its inception, few automakers have dared market such a specialized transportation module at such an attractive price. More competitors came along, such as the Pontiac Solstice,

Originally, the Miata designers used the Lotus Elan as their inspiration. For the 2006 MX-5 redesign, they used a better car as their muse: the Miata.

DL #11029


2 STORES - Online and in the Richmond Auto Mall

but Mazda had a 15-year head start. Over the years, it’s easy to forget the frenzy caused by the Miata’s arrival in 1989. The car was actually visually modeled after a 1960s-vintage Lotus Elan, an admittedly cute looking but poorly constructed machine that was fragile in the extreme and lacked any semblance of interior space. The Elan seemed a lessthan-an-ideal example of a sports car to emulate. However, members of Mazda’s California design team wisely looked past the Lotus’s shortcomings. They correctly surmised that if the nostalgic look would evoke fond memories of the good old days (after all, how many people have actually driven a Lotus Elan), then the Miata’s modern-day character, backed by then state-of-theart mechanical components, high-quality fit and finish and affordable price, would certainly help clinch the deal. Mazda also possessed considerable sports-car production experience. The rotary-powered RX-7 had been a big hit since 1978, although it had shifted to the premium end of the price scale. This allowed the Miata to sell in a more popular price range and in a category all but abandoned by the world’s automakers. Those early MX-5 Miatas, the car’s full name, were immediately gobbled up by hungry customers who had fallen hard for the car’s retro looks and bargain-basement sticker. In fact, as demand far exceeded supply, price gouging and quick-flip resales added thousands to the prices paid by many buyers. The car delivered on all its promises and then some.

It was comfortable, the gauges were easy to read and the control-panel knobs and switches were straightforward and close at hand. The manual-folding soft top could be easily raised or lowered by one person who remained sitting inside. Most importantly, though, Miatas were a ball to drive. They could be tossed around corners with abandon and not lose composure and their surefooted disc brakes were there to bail out drivers who let their exuberance get the better of them. Mazda’s something-foreveryone approach with the Miata also extended to the options list that included air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, antilock brakes, alloy wheels and a lightweight removable hard top. First-year 1990 Miata sales topped the 40,000 plateau, an excellent achievement for such a limitedpurpose car. Complaints were few and far between with most centering on the car’s lack of power. For the truly committed, the automotive aftermarket rushed in to supply turbochargers and other power-enhancing accessories. Over the years, Mazda kept the Miata pot boiling by regularly increasing engine displacement and horsepower, in addition to adding an available sixspeed manual shifter. More than 750,000 Miatas were built before the Miata name was shed for production of the larger and more powerful MX-5 for the 2006 model year. Whether Mazda thought the Miata handle had run its course or that it was just too cute and ran counter to the direction of the new car is a matter of some speculation.

when Delta capitalized on numerous fast break opportunities and their bread and butter inside play, exploding for 21 points to lead 48-35 after three quarters. Seeded second in the 32-team championships, the Delta District champions opened play with decisive home court victories over AD Rundle from Chilliwack and Langley Christian to advance to the main draw. They were matched-up with seventh seed Lord Tweedsmuir in the quarter-finals and the Pacers stuck with their game plan from start to finish, frustrating their Cloverdale opponent with a zone defence. Delta jumped out to a 17point halftime lead and cruised to a 46-20 victory. On Saturday, the Pacers squared off with Surrey champions Tamanawis. Despite a close victory over the Wildcats in December, the Pacers knew that this would be a battle of contrasting styles of play. In the end, the perimeter play and lights out shooting of the Wildcats outdid the strong post play of the Pacers in a hard-fought 41-37 loss. The teams could very well meet at some point again during the provincials, which tip-off next Thursday. Delta and Tamanawis will be joined by three other Valley schools including champion MEI. Team members headed to the B.C. c championships include: Jack Kraemer, Keatan Mann, Carter Warn, Conor Edgson, Mitch Robinson, Jacob Cowley, Jared Ferreira, Tyler Jones, Parker Strukoff, Jas Singh, Cam Gray, Dylan Bubel, Brennan Matharu, Cam Ratzlaff and Duncan Ross. This marks the second time head coach Aaron Akune has guided a Pacer team to the tournament. Delta’s last appearance was in 2010 when the Ladner school placed eighth.

Pacers bid for B.C. AAA tourney berth ends with loss to Gleneagle MARK BOOTH

A treacherous path through the Fraser Valley to the B.C. “AAA” Boys Basketball Championships got the best of the Delta Pacers on Monday night. In search of just their second provincial berth in 20-years, the Pacers saw their season come to an end in a 76-63 loss to the Gleneagle Talons. Seeded 15th, Delta knew it would need a couple of mild upsets to earn one of the

eight B.C. berths that were up for grabs. A 64-53 opening round win over 18th seed North Surrey was followed by 72-45 loss to the number one ranked Walnut Grove Gators. The 10th seeded Talons would be the first of two potential hurdles in sudden death consolation play. Delta got off to a promising 9-4 start before the Coquitlam school’s perimeter game began to heat up. Gleneagle opened up a 22-point third quarter before a solid fourth quarter cut the margin to nine. The Pacers would get no

closer. “We didn’t close on them quick enough or get a hand in their face and they started making some shots,” said head coach Matt McKay. “They shot the ball well and we didn’t do a good enough job on the glass in the first half. That was the difference in the end.” With as many as 17 Valley teams capable of earning a B.C. berth, the Pacers needed to be firing on all cylinders. Guard MacKenzie Falk, the team’s top three-pointer shooter, was battling the flu Monday and

saw limited playing time. Meanwhile, 6foot-5 senior Will Schwan, a starter a year ago, missed the entire season with concussion symptoms. “Will is a strong and athletic kid who definitely would have helped us,” added McKay. The Pacers will be returning all but three players next season, including four starters, when they play in the newly created “AAAA” tier for large schools. The current enrollment levels at DSS will keep them there for the next two years.

Ice Hawks and Sockeyes renew rivalry Tuesday to open PIJHL conference final The Delta Ice Hawks and Richmond Sockeyes will meet for the fourth consecutive year in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League’s Tom Conference finals, starting Tuesday night in Ladner. There has been little to separate these two rivals over the years with each club managing a pair of PIJHL championships during their four-year dominance. The Hawks took out Richmond in six games a year ago en route to the title. The Sockeyes enjoy home ice advantage, having finished two points better than Delta

in the regular season standings. The headto-head league encounters saw each team win three games. They both also swept their opening round playoff opponents. The Ice Hawks eliminated the North Vancouver Wolf Pack, while Richmond defeated North Delta 4-3 Wednesday to close out its series. Game one gets underway at 7:30 p.m. at the Ladner Leisure Centre. The series then shifts to Minoru Arena next Thursday (7:30 p.m.) and Sunday, March 10 (5:45 p.m.).

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your intellectual side blossoms this month. Cultural venues, higher education, far travel, love and understanding flow over you. As with any March, November or January of any year now to 2024, you might fall in love. (If this week, Wednesday/Thursday. The person is stubborn, inscrutable and sexy.) However, you should not start any new venture nor relationship before March 17. If love comes before then, it is probably with an old flame or someone you already know. Similarly, in far travel, it’s best to aim for countries you’ve already visited, etc. Finances, intimacy Friday on. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before March 17. An alluring, sexy person or a financial situation (or both) might return from the past – either can be good news, or bad – you decide. Research goes well, but a health diagnosis lacks conviction – a hint it can be wrong. (You’re protected in health right now, though blood sugar could be wonky.) Rest early Sunday: the p.m., to Tuesday, features creative and romantic lures – be skeptical rather than disillusioned later. Tackle chores midweek – success is certain! (If an old employer phones, listen.) Relationships are mixed, Thursday eve onward. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The world is full of challenges and opportunities this week and next. Note that both tend to be “repeats” of past challenges and opportunities – if any are new, your best action is to turn away, for new starts undertaken before March 17 are likely to spin in circles until they fail. You might fall in love, in a “realistic” way. Conquer the opposition Sunday afternoon to Tuesday morning. Otherwise, use these few days to rest, nurture family. Romance, creative urges and a winning streak visit you Tuesday eve to Thursday noon. Tackle chores, health late week. (Patience, Friday.)

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Lie low, Aries. Don’t be the bump that gets flattened. Rest, nap, mull over your life. Ponder God, spirituality, charity, karma. Deal with government agencies and institutions. Handle administrative chores. But don’t start any new project nor seek new contacts. Ongoing ventures/people, and returnees from the past, are your only successful venues until March 17. Sunday-Tuesday brings sweet, mellow understanding – “stand down” in legal and far travel matters. Be ambitious midweek: show bosses what you can do (but nothing new!). Happiness, optimism bless you Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Hope and happiness flood in! You have a superb future – the two decades ahead will tend to bring your deepest wishes true. (If single, you might wed before September 2015.) Keep these thoughts as armour during all 2013, when self-pity might attack. This week, expect social delights, entertainment, friends and flirts. A former friend or lover returns. Don’t start any brand new relationships or projects before March 17. Mysteries, intimacy, sexual bonds, lifestyle changes, commitment and consequences rule Sunday-Tuesday. Love, understanding midweek. Be ambitious Thursday night. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing before March 17. Protect ongoing ventures and relationships, especially in career and ambition zones. You might be asked to assume a former role/duty, or a former boss returns, or you need to face an authority who isn’t finished with you. Realize that a huge new career prospect is spreading out before you, stretching to 2025. Present bumps or delays in your plans might be merely the big ship of fate turning into this new career sea. Links meet friction Sunday to Tuesday. Sexy urges and financial changes are lucky midweek. Understanding, love, culture, Friday/Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Tackle old, neglected tasks – drag them from the attic, barn or filing cabinet and clear them away. Your “post chore” life (March 20 onward) will be lighter, freer, more energetic and effective as a result. (Chores left hanging are a “psychic weight” that saps us of energy and drive.) But remember: don’t start big, brand new jobs. Travel, curiosity, restlessness wind through Sundayto-Tuesday. Double-check paperwork, facts. Your family, diet and retirement plans get a lucky boost midweek: job/income security is confirmed. Beauty, romantic notions Friday/Saturday: go slow. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Ah, sweet romance. An old flame might return, or nostalgia haunts your love dreams, or your present squeeze grows more alluring. The only thing to avoid is a brand new link, as relationships and projects started before March 17 are likely to spin in futile circles. Give honor where it’s due. Protect your money Sunday p.m. to Tuesday morning – a thorny, pothole-strewn path awaits. Buy NOTHING. Trips, errands, communications, light friends, paperwork – all succeed midweek, can spark romance, intimate talk. Thursday night to Saturday bring domestic concerns – act Friday morning. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent remains on domestic matters, kids, garden, nutrition, “hibernation,” naps, security, retirement planning, real estate. Start nothing new before March 17, especially in these domestic arenas. A home you once hankered after might become available early next week (the 10/11th). Rest Sunday morning. Your energy and magnetism increase Sunday p.m. to Tuesday – but you’ll spend more time quelling old fires/conflicts than in productive accomplishment – this can be a good thing, as it clears away old problems while new starts remain unproductive. Money’s lucky midweek!

Shedding light on community issues

March 3 - 9, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: It’s a busy but not important week, Cap. You’re hungry for movement, information and conversation. Don’t start brand new projects, and remain alert for mistakes, misunderstood directions, delays and equipment shortages. Sunday starts sociably, but by the p.m. (to Tuesday) retreat, rest and contemplation become a good idea. Be careful when dealing with institutions or government agencies. Your energy and charisma surge upward Tuesday eve to Thursday eve – DON’T start important projects, but do apply your increased moxie to solve ongoing situations. Late week, money’s mixed. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The main focus lies on money, possessions, memory, rote learning, and sensual contacts. It’s a lucky, confusing, and “swift spending” influence. Double check figures, transactions, know where your keys are, etc. Don’t start any new projects (especially in money) before March 17 –buy NOTHING major, as you’ll unfailing pick the lemons.You could have a hot but brief physical affair. Sunday gets interesting after supper, to Tuesday – friends, popularity, optimism, social joys and flirtations spark a happy mood. Retreat, rest midweek. Your energy, charm return Thursday night onward. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy and magnetism remain high – you’re attracting admiration from more than one source! An Aries, Taurus and Virgo seem to be focused on you. If one of these is an ex spouse, expect sparks. Despite this, avoid starting new projects and new relationships before March 17. Show your ambition, skills and “best smile” to bosses and VIPs Sunday eve to Tuesday. Frustrations and good luck mingle. Tuesday eve to Thursday suppertime bring happiness, optimism, popularity, flirtation, and entertainment. Someone could reveal their attraction: welcome it! Money’s mixed Friday/Saturday. • Reading: 604-886-4808
