Traffic impacts to be ‘insane’

Civic politicians concerned by congestion that will be created by Tsawwassen First Nation developments BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

It’s insanity. That was the most often used description Monday by several members of Delta council while discussing how residents can expect much greater congestion and longer travel times once major developments at the Tsawwassen First Nation are built. “This is insanity. It’s insanity of the federal government and the provincial government to allow this mega-shopping mall development in this southwest corner of the Lower Mainland. They’re basing this mall development on CrossIron Mills, but that mall is way up north of Calgary, out in the middle of nowhere with no traffic impacts,” said Coun. Ian Paton, “I don’t think anyone has any answers for all these cars.” Saying he was horrified, Coun. Bruce McDonald was clearly not impressed about what’s coming in a little over three years, or that the provincial government seems to be doing little to address the situation. “Somebody has to come up with a better plan... somebody is building a huge mall here through our community and they have to have a solution that will work,” he said. Mayor Lois Jackson agreed, saying she’s concerned many will wind their way through Ladner looking for an alternate route to the malls. Delta’s engineering department, using figures gathered from the TFN’s own consultant, took a close look at what locals can expect in the next few years. A staff report examined the likely traffic impacts with the addition of two big shopping centres, thousands of new homes and industrial development.

Tsawwassen Mills, based on the CrossIron Mills shopping centre north of Calgary (top) and a similar mega mall in Ontario, will feature 1.2 million square feet of space and 6,200 parking stalls. The traffic impacts from it and other developments by the Tsawwassen First Nation are expected to be substantial. The First Nation hired a consultant to undertake a traffic impact assessment. TFN representatives provided a brief overview to Delta council a couple of months ago, but council asked staff to report back on the traffic assessment

findings. The report from engineering director Steven Lan noted that while extensive upgrades are proposed to Highway 17 and local roads, all under various levels of jurisdiction, it will not alleviate

the full impacts. During peak periods “it is anticipated that more through traffic will likely occur along certain Ladner roads such as Arthur Drive, as motorists seek out other routes during peak travel times.”

Lan’s report also noted, “The adjoining farming community will also be impacted. It is anticipated that some of the proposed intersection and highway improveSee TRAFFIC page 3

Family adjusting to its new life

Sponsored by Ladner Christian Reformed Church, the Nigenas finally leave Kenyan refugee camp behind BY

MARION VAN DRIEL Optimist contributor

On the evening of Nov. 3, 2011, the Nigena family — Alphonse, Denyse and their three children, ages 8, 6 and 2 — arrived exhausted, but smiling, at Vancouver International Airport after leaving Nairobi 24 hours earlier. They were met by a small group, including Gerry Bouman, co-ordinator for the sponsoring Ladner Christian Reformed Church. The Nigenas experienced a number of delays that kept them confined to a hotel room in Nairobi for three weeks before catching their flight to Canada. Originally from Rwanda, both Alphonse and Denyse fled to a Kenyan refugee camp to escape ongoing violence and danger. The camp had been their home for over a decade. Alphonse operated his own business fixing small appliances, but sold his business to cover health care costs for his family. Ladner Christian Reformed Church began sponsoring the Nigenas while they were still in Kenya, in order they would

The wait took more than a year, but prayers were answered and they arrived to a warm welcome. As sponsors, members of the church were reminded of how much we have to share when they were told

TRAFFIC from page 1 ments will require land from the Agricultural Land Reserve. Farmers may also need to utilize new travel routes to avoid increased traffic congestion along previously utilized corridors such as Arthur Drive and 53rd Street.” Lan told council the benefits of increased road capacity with the new South Fraser Perimeter Road “will be diminished as highway capacity is used by the Tsawwassen First Nation development.” It’s anticipated the Tsawwassen Mills and Tsawwassen Commons shopping centres, which are to have a ground breaking this summer, will generate an additional 1,000 vehicles per hour in the a.m. peak period, with 3,800 vehicles during the p.m. peak

hour. Meanwhile, 6,500 vehicles will come during the Saturday peak period around noon. By full TFN build-out in 2031, it’s expected the total TFN traffic generated will be 3,600 vehicles in the a.m. peak hour, 7,100 vehicles during the p.m. peak, and 9,000 during the Saturday peak. The report notes that by 2015, the Saturday peak hour traffic will double and even triple at many of the intersections, compared to what’s there to now, undoubtedly increasing the congestion on the roads leading to Tsawwassen and the TFN. Lan also noted much greater queuing will be found at many key intersections, resulting in longer wait times.

the two-bedroom apartment they had furnished for this family of five would house about 40 people in the refugee camp. It took the Nigenas some time to acclimatize, being accustomed to constant sunshine with temperatures of Some of the recommended road network upgrades include widening 52nd Street from Highway 17 to 28th Avenue to provide two lanes both northbound and southbound, and widening Highway 17 to provide three lanes in both directions through the 52nd Street and 56th Street intersections. Despite those and other upgrades, Lan said there are going to be “significant increases” to the George Massey Tunnel traffic, although the TFN consultant indicated the impacts are generally anticipated to be offset by the opening of the South Fraser Perimeter Road. “If the reduction in tunnel traffic is not realized with the opening of the SFPR, the increased TFN traffic will further exacerbate the existing congestion at the tunnel,” Lan said.

Special thanks to Dr. David Kason for his care of and concern for the family, devoting extra time and flexibility to help ensure their well being. The Nigena family is required to pay for its travel expenses to Canada and the three-week stay in Nairobi preceding the trip, a significant debt that could take a number of years to clear. Their trip here necessitated the attendance of a physician on the flight to Vancouver, increasing the bill.

Council calling on senior gov’t not to remove land Mayor stresses farmland shouldn’t be lost to port BY

Delta council is making its position clear regarding plans to industrialize hundreds of acres of prime agricultural land. Mayor Lois Jackson recently sent letters to the premier and various provincial and federal ministers to convey Delta’s concern about a pending application to exclude properties from the Agricultural Land Reserve to support port expansion at Roberts Bank. Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington recently made public that an industrial consortium is behind the optioning of 558 acres

(226 hectares) of farmland in South Delta. She said documents show option-topurchase agreements have been signed on 11 productive farm parcels for $98 million. Huntington said she was told government ministers were aware of the project and supportive of the proposal to turn South Delta farmland into an intermodal yard and logistics park. Several on Delta council recently dismissed the possibility the feds would go so far as to remove land from the Agricultural Land Reserve, however, they agreed to send letters. Jackson asked the premier to work with the federal government to ensure it does not exercise its authority to remove land from the ALR without the Agricultural Land Commission’s consent. “If an application is submitted, we urge the province to allow the ALC to uphold its mandate to protect farmland in British Columbia. This means protecting the

optioned parcels in Delta from future port-related development,” the mayor wrote. Jackson told the premier Delta has already seen a significant loss of agricultural land to the Tsawwassen First Nation treaty. In her letter to the federal ministers, the mayor acknowledged Ottawa has the power to remove the agricultural designation, but asked for a formal commitment to ensure the parcels stay in the ALR. She also stated that while Delta acknowledges the overall economic impact the port has on the rest of Canada, she doesn’t believe that benefit should come at the expense of Delta’s fertile farmland. According to Delta’s new agricultural plan, approved by council last fall, public infrastructure projects and other competitors for the land base are taking farmland, disrupting agricultural operations and exacerbating other issues in the area.

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

Ladner’s Emily Peters plans to cut off her hair this weekend to help raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. The Grade 12 student at Delta Secondary said she wanted to give something back and notes heart attacks and strokes have had an impact on her family.

“One of my grandfathers has had two heart attacks,” she said. “He was actually dead for five minutes once. The nurses brought him back to life.” Peters is calling the fundraiser Hairless for Hope. Her goal is to raise $1,000 and so far she’s raised over $700. Once her hair is cut off she plans to donate it to Little Princess Trust, a group in the UK that pro-

vides real hair wigs to children suffering hair loss due to cancer treatment. Peters found the group by searching online for a charity that accepted dyed hair. Peters has a couple friends and her mom lined up to help her cut her hair. She said she’s a bit nervous “but to be honest, I almost did it last year.” To donate visit Peters’ fundraising page online at http://bit.ly/ISP1Dx.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW I’m not saying they’re completely pointless, but ... The public consultation process for Tsawwassen’s longest-running soap opera, otherwise known as the Southlands, is poised to get underway this weekend. The Century Group has a pair of public information meetings planned (this Saturday and next Tuesday, both at the South Delta Recreation Centre) before Delta hosts a gathering of its own, likely sometime next month. In theory, these meetings are to educate the masses on what’s undeniably a complex proposal for Delta’s most controversial piece of real estate. And they should be a real eye opener for all those folks who’ve been living under a rock for the past half-dozen years or so. For the rest of the community, however, they’re merely a prelude to the official public hearings, assuming Delta council allows the project to get that far. Ideally, these information sessions would attract Joe and Jane Average, typical Tsawwassenites that want to learn a little more about that intriguing development application for the Southlands before deciding which side of the fence they’re most comfortable residing on. Unfortunately, the Averages don’t attend these types of forums, nor do they show up at public hearings or, for that matter, vote in municipal elections. They let others take care of those civic duty kinds of things. Those who frequent public information meetings tend to be the ones who are interested enough to have already done their homework and, in many cases, have already formed an opinion. That’s not to say there aren’t particulars of Century’s revised proposal they wouldn’t learn, but let’s just say they’re not arriving at the recreation centre, or any other venue, as a blank canvas. Most of those in attendance will be using information gleaned from the upcoming meetings to reaffirm their position or perhaps convince others to see the proposal in the same light. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it does bring the necessity of these sessions into question. Yes, there’s a mountain of information on a project of this magnitude so it’s important it gets out there for all to see, but for the vast majority of those in attendance this will simply act as a warm up. The real action doesn’t begin until the proposal reaches the public hearing stage and members of the community get an opportunity to state their case in an attempt to influence decision makers. Until that time, we’ll continue to go through the motions.

OMG! You don’t know what social media is all about? CORRY ANDERSONFENNELL

COMMUNITY COMMENT I have a love-hate relationship with social media. On the one hand, I love how easy it is to use apps like Twitter and Facebook. With my cellphone, I can take a photo of my dog doing something cute — does she ever do anything else? — send it out to my paltry amount of followers on Twitter (@CattleDogLady in case you were interested) and see it mirrored for my friends on Facebook, thanks to an app that lets me post tweets to my wall. But on the other hand, I can’t stand when the husband ignores my very important in-person comments about how awesome Rainn Wilson (@RainnWilson) is because he’s busy tweeting, texting, Facebooking or on BlackBerry Messenger. If you’re not already on social media, your population is in decline. Consider this: More than

465 million people use Twitter, including seven million Canadians. An estimated one million accounts are added to Twitter every day. Facebook has 845 million active users, including 18 million in Canada, of which more than two million are in B.C. Canadians have an average of 190 Facebook “friends” each, and spend 20 minutes a day sharing data with them. Isn’t that the amount of time Health Canada recommends exercising to keep us fit and healthy? I don’t think finger calisthenics count. The fact is, except for maybe Google Plus, social media will continue to grow. Not even television can claim the type of revolution social media has experienced; it took 13 years for the worldwide television audience to reach 50 million people, but Facebook had 200 million users in less than a year. Despite my love-hate relationship with social media, the fact is, I’m on it and I see value, if not necessity, in being there. And I shake my head a little when I’m in the company of people who proudly boast about their lack of any kind of social media presence. You know the type - that salt-of-theearth individual who 15 years ago vowed never to buy a cellphone

and now reluctantly owns a clunky flip device with a pay-as-you-go card. Last week, I attended a couple of education seminars on social media and communication, and was stricken by the stark contrast in the instructors’ messages. One suggested that our inclination to so willingly and without limits connect with complete strangers interferes with the real bonds and relationships we could have with those who are actually close to us. The second promoted the benefits of social media personally, professionally and socially. Both instructors had legitimate arguments and both were right. Like anything, social media is a tool that needs to be used appropriately. Any tool can cause harm in the wrong hands or when used for the wrong reasons; I wouldn’t want to be around Jason Voorhees when he’s wielding a chainsaw, but it’s sure nice that my neighbour has one to help free the deadheads that get stuck under our float home. The bottom line is that social media is here to stay and if you’re not on it, at least learn what it is and respect what it does. You don’t have to tweet, but you should know what it means.

Follow Europe’s lead on rabbits

Editor: Re: Without ban problem to multiply, Murphy’s Law, May 4 The editorial highlighted the problem of uncontrolled rabbit populations. Wherever rabbits have been allowed to proliferate, they have caused problems, exacerbated by our removal of their natural predators. British colonists unwisely introduced rabbits into Australia more than 100 years ago, and they (the rabbits, that is) have since grown into a major pest to farmers there. In addition, they have forced many

indigenous small mammals to near extinction. Farmers responded by adding poisonous chemicals into their burrows, but that did not work. So scientists introduced the rabbit myxoma virus in the 1950s, which initially resulted in millions of rabbit deaths from myxomatosis. However, after some years surviving rabbits became resistant to the virus, while the virus itself mutated to a less virulent form. Consequently the rabbit population skyrocketed again, and remains a pest. Apart from sterilizing

the local bunnies, there is another solution: trap them and eat them. In Northern England in the 1920-1930s, my grandfather, like many of his friends, was on the dole, but he decided to raise rabbits for food, which turned out to be a profitable and tasty exercise. In many European countries rabbits form part of the national cuisine, so why not adopt the habit here? I’m sure somebody local could find a way to regularly trap these animals and sell them to enterprising butchers and restaurants. James Hudson

The Community Comment of April 25 stated that a 1980 report on the irrigation needs of 199 acres of the Southlands farm required a 38-acre, 15-foot deep reservoir to store surface water runoff when in fact a more accurate estimate would be 23 acres and 10 feet deep.

Editor: If you have ever thought you had struck a reasonable deal with a tradesperson or contractor, who has confidently assured you of their accounting for all requirements of your project, only to find the costs kept getting higher and higher, you know what it feels like to have been lowballed. For several years now, as more and more information regarding the true nature and scope of our local superport’s needs has become available to us, it has become clearer and clearer that our entire com-

munity has been lowballed by experts pitching South Delta as an enviable gateway to the world of international trade. With the latest revelations provided us through the research of MLA Vicki Huntington and associates, it is now apparent that South Delta and its citizens have been duped into becoming not active, informed and equally valued participants in a welcoming of the world to our country, through our community, but a doormat upon which a small group of individuals and corporate entities have tread with determined, quiet, and it would be fair to say stealthy, steps. It is in no way reassuring to learn that members of Delta council have been aware of these initiatives for several years and said nothing to their constituents about it. It might have been old news at municipal hall and to a few select par-

ticipants in the plans, but a complete surprise to most others in our community. The plan to remove a further 500-plus acres of some of the best farmland in Canada from the Agricultural Land Reserve is an outrageous affront to any reasonable person living in South Delta, British Columbia and Canada. Apparently, all of these issues are of little consequence when compared to the benefits that come with maximizing the efficiency of port operations. We have not reached a point of no return in this project. The continued decimation of farmland in our community should not be considered an inevitability. Time must be made for taking stock and acting on any reasonable alternatives. We cannot continue to accept the patronizing, arrogant actions of planners and decision-makers as being irreversible.

Earthwise hosting market & bee friendly plant sale

Earthwise Society is kicking off Earthwise Market Days with a Bee Friendly Plant Sale and Farm Market this Saturday. Come to the Earthwise Farm and Garden from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the society’s biggest plant sale yet. The unique community event is bringing attention to our vanishing bees. Find out how they help people and how people can help them. With flowers coming into bloom throughout B.C., it is time to remember our little pollinating friends. Without bees and their amazing pol-

FACT: ALTHOUGH THE MAJORITY OF CANADIANS BELIEVE THAT HAVING AN EMERGENCY PLAN AND EMERGENCY KIT ARE IMPORTANT, ONLY A SMALL MINORITY HAVE ACTUALLY CREATED THEM.

linating abilities, we would lose most of our fruit, let alone honey. Through pollination, Earthwise says bees contribute an annual $45 billion per year to the North American economy. It is concerning that many bee species are under threat from the widespread use of pesticides and loss of suitable habitat. A world without bees would be a hard hit to both to our food systems and the economy. People can help by planting bee friendly plants, which in turn create and extend bee habitats. Saturday’s plant sale will feature a wide selection of attractive, low maintenance, “bee friendly” perennials. Most of the offerings have been grown pesticide free in the Earthwise Garden. This year’s plant sale will also include a variety of organically grown vegetable seedlings. The Earthwise Organic

Master Gardener team will be on hand to answer gardening questions and help visitors select the right plant. To learn more about bees, join a live Honeybee Hive Tour at 11 a.m. or participate in a Bee Safari with provincial apiculturalist Paul van Westendorp at 1 p.m. The Earthwise Market is a great place to find local products, services, freshly harvested organic vegetables and last minute Mother’s Day gifts. Music will be provided by Delta’s favourite Celtic band, Doghouse, (performances at noon and 2 p.m.) and by children’s entertainer Max Tell (1 p.m.). The Earthwise Farm and Garden are at 6400-3rd Ave. in Boundary Bay. For more information on this event and about Feed the Bees, visit www.earthwisesociety.bc.ca or www. feedthebees.org.

Certain items can’t help but end up in the cart BARBARA GUNN

LIVING MATTERS I am a sucker for tea lights. And pretty flowered napkins. And vases the colour of sherbet. Seldom do I embark on a shopping expedition intending to buy these items. But when I see them, I can’t resist. Take the other day. The husband and I headed into Richmond. I was raring to go; the husband, not so much. The husband, in fact, accompanied me solely because I assured him the shopping business would be a matter of a “quick in and out” and that afterward, we would visit the golf store of his choice and some quaint little pub to have a pint or two. (I will not name the store, given that it’s probably not editorially acceptable to be seen to promote one store over another. I will only say that it’s a

Swedish store and that its colours are blue and yellow and that it sells bags of yummy meatballs and products with funny names like Evalill and Solvinden. Could be The Bay, right?) But I digress. In we went. I grabbed a cart. And that’s when it began. “Why do we need a cart?” asked the husband. He looked at his watch. “I thought this was going to be a quick in and out.” “It will be,” I said. “But we’re going to buy a few things, for crying out loud.” I found my tea lights. And a spring-like tablecloth. And the sweetest little tray. I found half a dozen little bowls and some juice glasses in a pack of eight. “We already have juice glasses,” said the husband. “And don’t we have bowls?” “But these are adorable,” I pointed out. “Besides, look at the price! It would be criminal not to get them.” I made my way through the unnamed store like a woman possessed, tossing pillows and tea towels and

place mats into my cart. I paused, glancing at the sweetest little toddler chair I had ever seen. “Our kids are in their 20s,” the husband said. “Let’s move on. I’m thirsty.” “OK,” I said. “Point taken.” We did, however, need plants. And pots to put the plants in. We did need a new pitcher and some new mixing bowls and some new magazine files and some new wastepaper baskets and a new bath mat. “We don’t need mixing bowls,” said the husband. “How do you know?” I said. “It’s not like you make the muffins or the Yorkshire pudding.” I restrained myself, the husband was glad to see, when it came to the sofas and the side tables and the kitchen cabinets. “I’m thirsty,” the husband said again. “OK,” I said. “Let’s go.” There’d be no beds, not on this day, at least. We didn’t exactly need them. And besides, there was simply no room in the car.

Local Student Labour has returned to provide home and garden services to the community./

Entrepreneurial students at it again this summer A group of local students is once again offering its services around town this spring and summer. Last year, South Delta Secondary grads Mitch Lepore and Brennan Phillips started their own business — Local Student Labour — after deciding they didn’t want to spend their last summer before university flipping burgers or waiting tables. The pair teamed up with a group of friends and local contractors, spending the summer doing everything

from house painting and staining to yard work and power washing. Phillips and Lepore recently returned to South Delta after completing their first year at the University of Calgary, where both are studying business, with the aim of resurrecting Local Student Labour. “It was really good last summer,” Phillips said, adding the business was well received in the community. Both Lepore and Phillips said the success of Local Student Labour last summer

enabled them to save up enough money so they did not have to work throughout the school year and were able to fully concentrate on their studies. Lepore said they are trying to be more independent this summer and rely less on established contractors to get jobs. He added they plan to focus more on house painting but will take on any job.

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.

Yes the club entered the 2012 season with high expectations, led by thirdyear standouts Mike Mallory and Logan Schuss. For now, the Islanders are leaning on some promising rookies to carry much of the load. Schuss, is winding down his junior season playing field lacrosse at Ohio State University and won’t be back in town until early next month. Mallory was considered a strong candidate to win the league scoring title but had been bothered by a sore foot through training camp. What was believed to be a turf toe proved to be much more when x-rays revealed a broken bone in his foot. The best case scenario is he will be back in action in a couple of weeks. Adding to the woes was a 1-2 start to the season and the struggle to generate offence. It prompted Shaun Springett to call a team meeting on the eve’s of Saturday’s home opener against the Langley Thunder. The rookie head coach challenged some of his key firstyear players to step up their game and get the team back

on track. The end result was the Islanders coming through with a 11-9 victory, led by a trio who were among the top snipers in the B.C. Intermediate “A” Lacrosse League last season. Eli McLaughlin enjoyed a six point night, including four goals, while Mike Henry added a goal and four assists. Tyler Nett was prominent in a playmaking role with five assists. “Eli had one goal in three games for us after scoring (65) last season,” said Springett. “We challenged him and he showed tonight what level he is capable of playing. I think a lot of our young guys were trying to do too much themselves. They took a bunch of penalties which allowed our offence to find their sticks.” The Islanders raced out to an 8-3 second period lead and looked to be well on their way to a comfortable victory, only to allow the Thunder to battle their way back. Leading the rally for the visitors was former Islander and Ladner native Matt Messenger who finished the night with a four goals and one assist. He pulled Langley within a goal with over 12 minutes remaining when Issey Lamb’s second of the night gave Delta some much needed breathing room. The hosts then relied on

Henry had a goal and four assists as the Islanders won 11-9 to even their record at 2-2. some solid defending and the play of rookie goaltender Will Schwan the rest of the way for the win. “Our offence was going well tonight but, for the first time this season, our defence struggled a bit,” continued

Springett. “It’s just a matter of us putting it all together and it’s only May. We have some stuff to be fixed but we knew coming in there would be a learning curve. “The thing I like the most is the things that we are

doing wrong can be taught. It’s not like we are lacking talent or ability.” Veteran Sean O’Neil, a key two way standout, made his presence felt in his first game of the season with a pair of goals. Intermediate

call-up Cody Nass added a goal and three assists, while Jamie Malanfant also scored. The Islanders next home game will be at Sungod Arena on Saturday against Nanaimo at 8 p.m.

WHITEHEAD, Herb Jan 12, 1959 - Apr 11, 2012

Herb was born in Burnaby, raised in Boundary Bay and lived his adult life in North Delta. He lived and died courageously. Herb graduated from South Delta Secondary in 1976 where he demonstrated his gift and passion for sport. He swam competitively and played soccer, rugby and lacrosse at an elite level. Herb loved the outdoors and was well suited to his work as deckhand and cook on the tugs. He worked for the Washington Marine Group on ocean tugs which took him to the Gulf of Alaska and places on the BC Coast that few have seen. Life on the tugs afforded Herb much time off which he used to his benefit; taking up whitewater kayaking, telemark skiing and wood working. Herb, with his distinctive red beard, could be seen paddling Hell’s Gate, Capilano Canyon and Class IV rapids in Chile and Costa Rica. During the winter season he could be found carving turns on mountains all over BC and camping in his VW Van at the base of the hills. He took pleasure in his carving and wood turning which he generously shared with friends and family. Herb was predeceased by his mother Joyce in 2007 and father Bert in 2011. He is survived by his siblings; Sam (Sue), Jake (Lee), Cathy, Janet, and nieces and nephews; Sally, Eric (Michelle), Caia (Trevor), Kyle, Shane and Ciara (Matt) and grandnieces Milla and Paige. Herb’s family would like to thank his friends, team mates, neighbours and Health Care professionals for the companionship, support and understanding they gave our brother over the years. Please join us to celebrate his life on Friday, August 10 at 1:30pm at the Celebration Hall in Mountainview Cemetery, 5455 Fraser Street.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
