Apartment fire claims life

Early morning blaze in Tsawwassen last Friday damages 13 suites in 16th Ave. building BY


The cause of last Friday’s fatal apartment fire in Tsawwassen is still under investigation. Delta police spokesperson Sgt. Cal Traversy said Tuesday the investigation into the cause of the blaze continues as some of the affected residents are being allowed to return home. Delta fire crews were called to the Tsawwassen Terrace apartment building in the 5500-block of 16th Avenue just before 2 a.m. last Friday. A fire was in progress in the upper level of the two-storey

building. Deputy chief Ken Sim said when fire crews arrived one unit was fully involved. There were explosions on either side of that unit, he said, but crews managed to contain the fire to just three suites. One person was found dead in one of the apartments. In all, 13 suites were damaged by either the fire or smoke and water. About 60 residents of the 39unit building were evacuated. Some residents have been allowed to return home, Traversy said, as the building was deemed to not have suffered any significant structural damage.

The Mountie convicted of obstruction of justice in the 2008 crash that killed a South Delta man is scheduled for sentencing this week. Cpl. Benjamin “Monty” Robinson was found guilty of obstruction of justice earlier this year for his actions following a fatal collision with a motorcyclist in Tsawwassen. He is scheduled for sentencing in New Westminster Supreme Court Monty on Friday. Robinson Robinson was charged following the Oct. 25, 2008 crash that killed Orion Hutchinson. The 21-year-old died after a collision between his motorcycle and Robinson’s Jeep at about 10:15 p.m. at the corner of 6th Avenue and Gilchrist Drive. Following the crash, Robinson left the scene with his children and walked to his home a couple of blocks away. He drank two shots of vodka before returning to the scene. During the trial, Robinson told the court he drank the vodka without thinking because it gave him comfort. An addictions specialist testified during trial that in 2008 Robinson was an alcoholic and his actions were consistent with someone suffering from alcohol dependence. In March, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Janice Dillon found Robinson’s actions deliberate to avoid an impaired charge and convicted him.

Bumpy opening for beach facility

Septic pump failure closes washrooms and café encounters troubles, but hurdles now mostly cleared BY


The new concession building at Centennial Beach is still ironing out a few wrinkles, but it has been enormously popular. The building houses washrooms and change rooms as well an eatery called Centennial Beach Café. The café has indoor seating for 16 and outdoor seating for 40. Costing over $2 million, the long awaited Metro Vancouver facility had a “soft” opening on Father’s Day and a full opening July 4. “Business has been great and for the most part the public has been awesome. They understand that we opened at a super busy time and it’s a new building and we went through our bumps and bruises,” said Paul Roberts, a Tsawwassen resident who operates the café. Those bumps and bruises included computer issues, the refrigeration system shutting down, having to train an entirely new staff during the busiest time of year and running out of product. One thing Roberts wasn’t counting on was having to close for a couple of



Beach goers are now enjoying the café, part of a new $2 million building constructed by Metro Vancouver at Cenetennial Beach. days after a septic pump failed in the building last Wednesday, resulting in backed up toilets. “We had some issues and there’s continuing issues that you have to sort out with a new building, but we’re getting there,” Roberts said. Saying he would have liked to open sooner and

had everything ironed out by Canada Day, Roberts, whose previous experience includes owning a pub and nightclub, noted things are on track after those first few bumpy days. Saying business has been overwhelming, he plans to also open a full espresso bar and have breakfast items. He said his staff is

getting up to speed and he’s lucky to have an amazingly hard working group. Metro Vancouver area parks manager Mitch Sokalski said both the primary and secondary pump system failed last week, but the problem was fixed in time for the building to reopen for the weekend. He said the building is

well utilized and business at the café has been steady, strong and well received. “We’ve had several very positive comments about the facility and the food and the operator. We received some comments from people upset we were not open on Canada Day for full servicing,” he said. “Overall, it’s thumbs up

and people are positive and fairly understanding that you have teething pains at the beginning of opening a new facility.” The new facility paved the way for the regional district to finally shut down the old and dilapidated concession/washroom building at the beach. Fortunately, the old building hasn’t been torn down yet as the washrooms there had to re-open when the toilets in the new building backed up. The old building will be demolished within the next couple weeks, said Sokalski A regional district news release last week noted the building is a showcase of sustainable technology, including a green roof and solar hot water. The café’s food containers and cutlery are made of biodegradable materials, while food waste will be composted and cooking oil will be recycled. Centennial Beach is municipally-owned land that is leased to Metro Vancouver to manage as part of Boundary Bay Regional Park. The new concession building is part of a series of improvements in a site master plan approved by Delta.

Court rejects Delta’s effort to dismiss Middelaer suit

A judge this week rejected a bid by the Corporation of Delta to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of Alexa Middelaer, the fouryear-old Ladner girl killed by an impaired driver more than four years ago. The family alleges that Delta, one of a number of defendants in the civil suit, was negligent by failing to do enough to reduce the speed of vehicles on 64th Street, where the crash took place.

The lawsuit alleges speed bumps on the road were placed too close to one another and were a contributing or causal factor to the crash. A lawyer for Delta told B.C. Supreme Court Justice Peter Leask there is no evidence of a link between the speed bumps and the fatal crash. Lanny Robinson, arguing the matter was suitable for a summary trial, where no witnesses are called, noted

there had been only one crash in four years along the road — the one that claimed Alexa’s life — and that 500,000 vehicles travel along the route every year. “This is a one-in-twomillion event,” he told the judge. However, without hearing from a lawyer representing the family, the judge said the only course of action to resolve the matter was through a full trial. “The only way this court

can reach a just result in the case is through a proper, full trial,” he said. There are a number of related lawsuits pending and the trial is not expected to start for another 18 months. On May 17, 2008, Alexa Middelaer and her aunt Daphne Johanson were feeding a horse by the side of the road while the little girl’s grandparents waited in a nearby car. A car, driven by Carol Berner, traveling

northbound on 64th Street struck the parked vehicle and veered into the field. Alexa suffered fatal injuries and died later in hospital. Johanson was seriously injured. Berner was convicted of impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm. She was sentenced to 30 months in jail but is currently out

on bail pending the appeal of her conviction. The family has also named Berner in the civil suit, along with the provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, and Johanson, who is also a plaintiff in the case. A lawyer for the aunt is also expected to seek to have the claims against her dismissed. With files from the Province

Judgment reserved on bog society’s lawsuit Ottawa sued over South Fraser Perimeter Rd. impact BY


A Federal Court justice in Vancouver last week reserved judgment in a lawsuit filed by the Burns Bog Conservation society regarding the South Fraser Perimeter Road. The society was in court claiming Ottawa breached an environmental covenant to protect the bog when the highway was allowed to be built adjacent to the sensitive wetlands. The group and others opposed to the alignment of the SFPR contend the new highway will have a significant impact, despite the Gateway Program’s assurances that mitigation measures will address concerns. Society president Eliza Olson contends the highway will disrupt the natural hydrology and hydrochemistry, and destroy and fragment wildlife and their habitat. The society also contends the highway’s proximity contravenes the Canadian

Environmental Assessment Act and the federal Species at Risk Act. Using a grant from West Coast Environmental Law to go to court, the group notes the federal government is an equal, and therefore responsible, partner. The government is part of the conservation covenant management team and scientific advisory panel, says the society. Federal lawyers are arguing the society has no legal standing and therefore can’t sue the government. Olson said a decision wouldn’t come until September. “Some of the things working in our favour are our constitution, our longevity — 24 years this fall — our education programs and the professional way we have conducted ourselves over the years,” Olson said on Friday. “A special thanks to (lawyer) Jay Straith for taking our case and to Andrew Gage and West Coast Environmental Law for

Eliza Olson supporting us. Regardless of what happens, we will make history. Let’s hope that whatever happens, it’s a win for the bog and Mother Earth. As Jay says, ‘What happens to Burns Bog will have an impact on future generations.’” In 2004, four partners — federal, provincial, regional and municipal governments — jointly purchased 2,042 hectares (5,045 acres) of Burns Bog to be protected as an ecological conservancy area. A legally binding conservation covenant placed on the property is to ensure the land is protected.

Municipality raises fire danger rating to moderate

Summer has finally arrived in the Lower Mainland and after the recent stretch of warm, dry weather, Delta raised its fire danger rating last week. On Wednesday, the rating was raised to moderate. An outdoor burning ban has been in place since last month. On June 1, the fire chief cancelled all burning permits and prohibited all types of outdoor fires until further notice. The

Rodents not a problem despite warning BY


Rodents haven’t been a problem for the municipality’s new food waste and yard trimmings collection program. The Green Can program, which began in April, is a weekly collection of combined food waste and yard trimmings from single-family homes. The program allows residents to place all cooked and uncooked food waste, along with foodsoiled paper and yard trimmings, in one can for curbside collection. The Green Can replaced Delta’s former bi-weekly yard trimmings program. As expected, the wellbuilt containers haven’t been a new food source for rodents, said Mike Brotherston, manager of climate action and environment. “It’s been very popular and working quite well and we haven’t had those problems,” he said. A recent notification to several Ladner homes of a potential rodent problem is not connected to the Green Can program, Botherston said, adding there also isn’t a Delta-wide outbreak of the pests. Notifications are sent to a select number of homes in a neighbourhood following a complaint or complaints, he explained. “Generally, it’s quite a localized issue and the idea is to make people aware of some of the things they may be doing are attracting rodents, such as open compost piles and feeding animals outside, storage of dog food outside, those types of things,” he said. The notification was to make people aware that rodents will eat virtually any type food.

ban includes all areas of the municipality and campfires and open cooking (briquette and propane barbecues) in all Delta parks, with the exception of Metro Vancouver controlled fire pits in Deas Island Park and Boundary Bay regional

parks. As well, smoking is prohibited in all Delta parks. The public is urged to exercise caution and remain on designated park trails to reduce the risk of accidental fires. Residents are asked to report any fires directly to

911 and any unauthorized activity that poses a risk of fire to the Delta Police Department’s non-emergency line at 604-946-4411. Here are a few tips to enjoy the hot weather and help prevent fires: • Dispose of smoking

materials properly, making sure they are completely extinguished. • Don’t leave barbecues unattended and ensure they are turned off properly after you have finished using them. • Explain the dangers of

playing with fire and lighting fires to children. • Properly dispose of bottles and broken glass you find outdoors to avoid them magnifying the sun’s rays and starting a fire. For more information visit

Harris Nursery closing its doors Sunday Tsawwassen location shutting down after 50 yerars, but Ladner operation will continue to serve South Delta

Commercial core suffers another loss with closure of Jack’s TV & Stereo

The community recently lost another long-standing local business. Jack’s TV & Stereo in Tsawwassen closed earlier this month after almost a half century in business. Owner Bill Learmont said a variety of factors contributed to the closure. “Our store was based on customer service,” he said, adding Jack’s TV & Stereo always offered free delivery and set up. However, with prices dropping it became too difficult to continue to offer that same level of service. “It just became too hard to compete with the big guys,” he said, adding that online shopping trends also played a part in the store’s demise. “We were there for a long time and were profitable for a long time,” he said. “Times change.” Jack’s TV & Stereo was started by Learmont’s father, Jack, 47 years ago. Learmont took over in the early 1970s. “I just want to thank my customers,” he said. “I just want to thank them for all they’ve done.” Learmont said he will maintain the Jack’s TV & Stereo website,, and continue to answer any customer queries through the site.

Tsawwassen is losing a long-standing business. After 50 years, Harris Nursery in Tsawwassen will close its doors for the final time on Sunday. Ladner’s Harris Nurseryland, however, is still going strong and will continue to serve South Delta’s plant and gardening needs. The original Tsawwassen location came from humble beginnings. Avid gardener Gerry Harris built a greenhouse on his property. After cultivating a good number of plants, he decided to see if any nurseries in the area wanted to sell them. Finding little success, Gerry and wife Vernette decided to sell the plants themselves. The couple remembers setting up wooden planks on sawhorses and selling the plants in front of their house. The rest, as they say, is history. Boutique Blanche Intimates

Locals bought the plants that first time, continued to come back and a business was born. Gerry continued to work for B.C. Hydro while Vernette took care of the day-to-day operation of the nursery. Business was booming and it soon became too much for one person. In 1972, Gerry quit the power company and started working full-time at the nursery. In the early 1980s, the family moved the business to its current location on 12th Avenue. The move also brought a few changes — it started selling giftware, gardening tools and added

a florist. And in 1986, the Ladner location, which is now owned by son Scott Harris, opened. Harris Nursery has always been a true family affair. Scott started working at the family business fulltime after completing high school in 1978 and his wife Michele now works at the Ladner location. Daughter Shelley, who is a teacher at Pebble Hill Elementary, still does deliveries and her husband Cory also works at the Ladner nursery. Vernette and Gerry say they have come to the end of their working years and decided to close the


Tsawwassen location and hand the reins over to Scott. They are thankful to the community for all the support over the years. “We just appreciate all the business they’ve given us and support over the years,” Gerry said. “It’s just unreal.” The Tsawwassen location has been running a different sale every week leading up to the closure. This week, everything is 70 per cent off until the doors close for the final time on Sunday. Harris Nursery is located at 5456-12th Ave. The site is likely to be redeveloped into multi-family housing.

District looks at covered sports fields Partners are being sought for lighted artifical turf facilities that would be constructed at Delta schools BY


The Delta school district is pitching the idea of building covered sports facilities. Still in its early stages of discussion, the concept was recently posted on the district’s website for feedback and ideas. “We’re very excited about it. I think it would be a great facility for our communities, for both the North and South Delta,” said deputy superintendent Garnet Ayres The facilities would have lighted artificial turf surfaces, covered with a stainless steel roof and frame. The structures wouldn’t be completely closed but the sides would be fenced. On the inside, dasher boards would surround the fields, which could be used for a variety of sports About 30,000-square-feet in size, early estimates have each facility costing over $1 million. The idea is based on a similar covered field in Penticton, owned by a local soccer association,

explained Ayres, noting there’s nothing like it in the Lower Mainland. Ayres noted unlike the Penticton facility, the proposed covered fields in Delta wouldn’t be heated and would have exposure to the outside from the sides. “They’ll be covered, so you stay dry. In Delta, our weather and climate is such that there would be very few days you wouldn’t want to use it,” Ayres said. Entry to the secured facilities would be gained by swipe cards. The idea is to build one or more covered sport field facilities at school grounds throughout Delta. The project has already garnered significant community support, according the district, which is interested in partnerships with organizations, businesses and individuals. “We wanted to see if this idea has any legs and shared it with some of our community groups that currently are renting our gym space. We’re getting really good support for the concept, but it’s just a concept right now,” Ayres said.


“We’ve been talking to lacrosse, we’ve been talking to soccer, we’ve been talking to baseball. It’s pretty exciting to hear people thinking this could actually happen in our communities. It would be pretty neat for our children to have that experience of working and practicing in these facilities.”

well as sponsors. “No education dollars would be used whatsoever. It would have to stand alone. It would also still need (school) board approval,” Ayres said. Delta council last December endorsed the Ladner Sport Field Enhancement Plan, containing a series of improvements to sports fields. At that time, there was no discussion of potential covered fields. The biggest item in the enhancement plan, costing $3.8 million, is a lighted turf field at Dugald Morrison Park. The project is to be financed primarily by Delta, but user groups are also asked to contribute. The parent advisory council at Delta Secondary came forward with its own proposal to have an artificial turf field built at the Ladner high school, but that proposal was rejected.

MURPHY’S LAW There will undoubtedly be resistance, but history suggests in time we’ll come around. That has typically been the case with roundabouts, one of which is being considered for the intersection of Ladner Trunk Road and Arthur Drive. The idea of replacing signal lights at a major corner with a roundabout seems like a radical move, particularly in these parts, but it would follow a growing trend throughout this country and most places around the globe. There are many valid reasons why roundabouts are gaining popularity and one slightly less scientific one that prevents even greater use of these low-tech traffic mechanisms. Perhaps the biggest selling point is the fact drivers have to slow down, but not come to a complete stop, when they get to them. Given the delays routinely encountered at the intersection in question, thanks in part to a pair of advance left turn signals, the idea of rolling through in far less time is appealing. Not having to idle while waiting for the light also means a reduction in noise, air pollution and fuel consumption, making roundabouts a greener choice. Another benefit is because vehicles are moving at a slower rate of speed, and all in the same direction as they make their way around the circle, the most dangerous kinds of accidents, the head-ons and T-bones that result in the greatest carnage, simply disappear. With everything they’ve got going for them, you’d think politicians and traffic engineers would be falling over themselves to convert signalized intersections into roundabouts, yet, for the most part, that hasn’t been the case. We’re seeing more and more of them to be sure, but they’re still foreign enough to cause drivers to be a little anxious and make navigating them in the proper fashion a challenge. And therein lies the problem: They might well be a faster, safer and more environmentally friendly way of moving traffic, but if drivers are apprehensive, then so too are political leaders. Whether a roundabout ever materializes at the intersection of Trunk Road and Arthur Drive remains to be seen, but Delta council and civic staff deserve marks for their willingness to even consider the possibility. They likely face an uphill battle as studies have found the motoring public is not receptive initially, but after one is installed and drivers have become accustomed to it, the approval rating increases substantially. Like anything, however, you can’t get used to it until you try it.

Case for George Massey Tunnel replacement not easy to justify ED RIES

COMMUNITY COMMENT So ... will a new bridge replace the George Massey Tunnel? Our mayor says without it commuter traffic will be “devastating.” Wonder if anybody listens? Those who decide these things likely consider the region’s needs, not just ours. Should costly new bridge construction serve a small community voicing an urgent need ... or benefit the largest possible regional population? And don’t forget; someone must pay for it. I Googled 10 major crossings: Lions Gate, Iron Workers, Laing, Oak, Knight, Massey, Alex Fraser, Pattullo, Port Mann and Golden Ears. Their year of completion varies from 1936 (Pattullo) to 2009 (Golden Ears). They range from three lanes (Lions Gate) to four, five (Mann) and six (Fraser, Iron Workers and Golden Ears). There is a 10-lane replacement for the Port Mann under construction and it seems likely the Pattullo

may also be replaced. It’s the oldest, has dangerously narrow lanes and has had many accidents. In 2006, the Ministry of Transportation recorded four-lane crossing weekday traffic volumes averaging from 74,600 vehicles (Pattullo) to 99,677 (Knight). The tunnel’s average was 88,673, but five years later in 2011 its average had decreased to 87,239. Would 1,700 additional Deltaport truck trips be significant? Morning and evening weekday peak hour averages (4,939 and 4,850) were higher but of noticeably shorter duration than those of the four-lane bridges. Massey’s counterflow operation, spreading the peaks over three lanes rather than two, renders them similar to those of the bridges. Golden Ears is the first modern Lower Mainland test of tolls, and early results are worrisome. Tolls, initially of $2.95 (cars) and $10.05 (trucks), are expected to repay construction costs of $808 million plus interest. Usage is disappointing; 29,500 vehicles per day compared with the other two six-lane bridges, both toll-free, recording 117,000 and 127,000. Will drivers shun toll bridges? The Port Mann replacement will also charge tolls to repay construc-

tion costs of perhaps $2 billion. As would a Pattullo replacement costing $800 million. If users don’t pay, guess who gets stuck with the bill ... and with “devastating” traffic at any free crossings. So how does a tunnel replacement project stack up in the competition for funding? It’s at least behind Pattullo and, if user tolls prove unworkable, completely out of luck until some other funding source is agreed. If there were money, would a tunnel replacement be the place to invest? South Delta has less than two per cent of the region’s population. One wonders: Would politicians squander a huge capital project on only two per cent of their electorate? Pending South Fraser Perimeter Road completion, South Delta lacks convenient access to alternative river crossings, but South Surrey and White Rock commuters have a choice. They can either use Highway 99 through the tunnel or Highway 91 over the six-lane Alex Fraser. Does their decision to join the lineup through the tunnel suggest the tunnel isn’t so bad? I know this won’t lessen frustration with tunnel traffic. It might, however, invite useful discussion about why tunnel replacement could be neither soon, nor likely.

July 18, 2012 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

Recent tax bills far beyond rate of inflation Editor: I am very concerned regarding the rise of taxes and utility charges in Delta. Much of the political rhetoric of late has been espousing fiscal control and what a good job our purse holders have been doing. Well, I have studied in some detail our recent tax and flat rate utility bills and wish to confuse some of the bull droppings and folklore with some facts. The Corporation of Delta’s stated increases in gross taxes have been 3.98 per cent in 2010, 2.98 per cent in 2011 and 2.9 per cent in 2012. Having reconciled my tax bill for variations in assessed value

changes over these three years, I find this to be true; taxes have indeed risen 10.2 per cent over these three years. At the same time, the flat rate utility bills have risen 24.5 per cent. In my case, the combined increase for flat rate utilities and gross taxes has been 12.6 per cent over three years. Depending on your assessment, this increase is more or less true for most of us. The corporation is quick to point out there are special, abnormal increments for things like added capital projects (one per cent in 2010), added police (0.5 per cent in 2011) and road improvements (two per cent

Another unwelcome cat

Editor: Re: Cat is an unwelcome visitor, letter to the editor, July 11 I sympathize with Kirsti Mattson as I too suffer the messy results from a cat in our neighbourhood (9A Avenue at 53rd Street) that follows mine through its access point to my home and terrorizes it. Recently I came in and it looks like they had an excrement fight in the bathroom and there is fur all over the place (my cat’s, not the bigger, aggressive beast that attacks my smaller cat constantly). Previously, I asked around the neighbours to see if anyone knew who it belongs to and since I learned nothing from them, I called the animal rescue service that picked up the cat, took it away,

discovered it had a tattoo in its ear and returned it to the owners the same day. The cat returned to our patio door that evening. The staff at the animal rescue place would not give me the phone number of the owners and I asked them to get the owners to call me, which they did not do, so the saga continues. Mattson might like to invest in an accessory that allows her cats in and out but not any other animal not wearing the collar with the signalling device on it. I am going to investigate this item myself as I just learned of it a few days ago. Otherwise, I think I’ll need to give my cat to someone outside of my neighbourhood so she isn’t traumatized any further. Karel Ley

Friends pose danger too Editor: I am a grandmother and I would like to share a situation that occurred on the last day of elementary school. I was waiting for the bell to ring for the children to go to their classrooms, when a child approached my grandson with some food shaped into a cupcake. I asked the boy about the food and where he got it. He pointed over to the park that was next to the school. In the park there was a party being had for dogs. I said to the boy that it didn’t look like a human cupcake but an animal one. He didn’t agree with me, so I asked him to talk to his mom. He told me he had

come on the school bus and his mom wasn’t there. So I asked him if an adult had given it to him. He said no, that it was on a tray, and he pointed to other boys that were eating it. He ended up throwing it away. My concern is this: We tell our children not to follow strangers or to take food from them. Yet do we take the time to reason with our children about situations that may occur with their friends? Do we help our children to understand why saying no to their friend can be the safe thing for them to do? Summer is here so let us do all we can to keep our children safe. A. Knox

in 2012). I have come to expect policing and road improvements to be a core responsibility of a municipality, along with fire protection, water and sewer, garbage collection and improvements to infrastructure through capital projects. None of these so-called special increments should be considered as anything outside the normal responsibilities of the corporation. The corporation is also quick to point out it is forced to pass on and collect charges by others (school, Metro Vancouver, B.C. Assessment, regional water and sewer, TransLink and the Finance Authority).

The corporation has no control over these charges. So what about the charges passed through by other jurisdictions? The combined cost of B.C. Assessment, Metro Vancouver, TransLink and the Finance Authority has actually decreased 1.9 per cent over three years. Thank heavens Delta has no control over these. The school gross taxation has increased 8.2 per cent over three years. The corporation is also quick to point out that portions of the flat rate utility bill increases are also passed through by the regional district. Of the $180 increase (24.5 per

cent) over three years, $124 is from the regional district and $56 is from Delta. Within the make-up of the flat rate utility bill, water costs have gone up 29.5 per cent, sewer is up 14.6 per cent, garbage is up a whopping 42.9 per cent and recycling is up 4.2 per cent. So what’s the bottom line in these numbers? Charges controlled by Delta have gone up 11.6 per cent over three years. School taxes have gone up 8.2 per cent. Regional water and sewer cost have gone up $124. Costs passed on by other jurisdictions have gone down 1.9 per cent. Homeowner’s net taxes

have risen 14.5 to 15.6 per cent. The Consumer Price Index is up 5.1 per cent in B.C. and 5.4 per cent in Vancouver over the same time. Our net taxes have risen beyond the general increase in goods and services by 10 per cent over the last three years. Delta and the school levy own virtually all of it. I disagree that our purse holders have been doing a good job. Perhaps they could focus on efficient delivery of the basic responsibilities of a municipality. All the special interests and pet projects will continue to have their hand out. Just say no. G.B. (Barry) Brett

Delta has supported tourism: mayor Editor: Tourism in need of champion, July 13 Unhappily one councillor has made statements in the Optimist that are not factual nor historically accurate. These are the facts: In January 2006, I set up the Mayors Standing Committee on Tourism and Economic Development. Members of the business community were appointed and a consultant was engaged to bring recommendations to the committee and hence the council, in order to identify many issues surrounding tourism in Delta. Much work was done during this time identifying the best method of implementing the recommendations, including the Delta “Blue Logo.” The committee remained in operation until the end of 2009. The findings are on record. As a result of the committee’s work, on Jan. 16, 2012, council approved

an amount of $47,500 for the Delta Chamber of Commerce to operate the Visitor Information Centre and provide tourism services through 2012 broken down as follows: • $16,000 direct costs for tourism services; • $18,000 salaries; • $13,500 overhead expenses (25 per cent of Delta chamber’s applicable operation expenses). This is the same amount Delta approved in 2011. The chamber has been operating the Tourism B.C.accredited Visitor Centre on behalf of Delta since 2001 and is part of a network of more than 100 similar centres throughout B.C. In its 2011 annual report, the centre experienced another decline in visitors (12 per cent over 2010) despite maintaining its level of operating hours (2,000 hours throughout the year). Approximately 72 per cent of users are local residents from Delta and the

surrounding area, followed by visitors from Europe, U.S., other parts of B.C. and Canada. Despite the downward trend in 2011, the centre provided direct services to more than 1,600 tourism parties and 2,200 individuals who visited the centre and 2,400 telephone enquiries, plus their tourism website, which is an increasingly popular source of information. The council decision was made to continue using the Delta Chamber of Commerce as the primary tourist promotional vehicle and in fact continue to contribute municipal tax dollars to the chamber for its efforts toward that promotion. We have continued to funnel $47,500 to the chamber for tourism and in the opinion of the council, the funding was given in order that members of the chamber could use their vast knowledge, expertise, desire

Mayor Lois Jackson and drive to fully advance the tourism promotion in Delta. I am sure the Tsawwassen Business Improvement Association and the Ladner Business Association also became and continue to be involved through the chamber’s efforts as promotional vehicles for tourism in both communities. I share this information with the Optimist as I am disappointed the story was not more fully researched. Lois E. Jackson Mayor

Overpasses being built in all the wrong places

Editor: Re: New overpass to provide direct access to airport, July 4 I am amazed at the number of overpasses all over Delta lately and also in the past 15 to 20 years. What concerns me is they’re putting them up in all the wrong places. What happened to the need for overpasses at 52nd Street and Highway 17, 56th Street and Highway 17, and Ladner Trunk Road and Highway 17, which has needed some kind of overpass there for the past

20 years? A good engineer could figure out something there. Also, 52nd Street and Highway 17 will need an overpass soon because of the two Tsawwassen First Nation shopping malls proposed near that intersection. And 56th Street and Highway 17 has always needed one for traffic volume from Tsawwassen, the ferries and, soon, the shopping malls. Speaking of traffic volume, Highway 99 should have been four lanes each way 20 years ago. Then it

could have connected to 80th Street, which is only one city block away. The three levels of government should have got together and insisted that Port Metro Vancouver could not build any more overpasses in Delta until these three overpasses were done. Then what was said about international trade, while reducing traffic congestion, improving air quality and building a stronger economy, would have been fulfilled. I appreciate all the new enhancements of railroad

projects and trade competitiveness, and the airport needs this 80th Street overpass, but I think the long-term vision of the municipality and Port Metro Vancouver has missed some important overpasses we have needed locally for years now. As we are known for the most greenhouses in the Lower Mainland, we could also be known for the most overpasses in the Lower Mainland. Or at least the most this side of Richmond. Gordon Sever

Use land at airport, not in ALR, to support port

Editor: Re: Odd place to locate industry, Murphy’s Law, July 13 I read your editorial with interest and amusement. The lands known as Boundary Bay Airport have a variety of uses in addition to being one of Canada’s busiest and best small airports. There is a wildlife management area on airport land on the south and west side, there is other land on the east and west that is in the ALR and is leased for agriculture, and there is land to the north that is the site of the old wireless

station. These lands total more than 150 hectares of airport land not in airport use. The remaining land at Boundary Bay Airport is leased to Alpha Aviation for the operation of the airport. The land that is subject to the lease with Alpha was defined by Transport Canada in an earlier lease with then-operator Raf Zur and signed in 1983. This lease permitted the airport operator to develop the airport land and the I8 Zone was created to define and limit development to airport related business. This was the case for 20

years and during that time no significant development or airport improvements occurred. After Alpha took over the lease in 2004 things began to happen, new hangars were built, a new terminal building was constructed and many other improvements were accomplished. Alpha entered into an agreement with Heli-One to build a helicopter maintenance facility employing 400. In 2008, the uses in the I8 Zone were amended to include warehousing and distribution along with a short list of other uses on lands not deemed necessary

to airside operations. The land Dayhu (doing business as Ten By Ten, in this case) is building on is not essential to airport operations, has never been in the ALR, is zoned I8 since 1983 and has formed part of the Boundary Bay Airport lands since 1940. The intention with this development is to build nearly one million square feet of distribution space for port related usage. This use of land that is appropriately zoned and is readily accessible for this use demonstrates there is no real need to use land in the ALR for port related

distribution needs. It makes sense to use the existing inventory of properly zoned land for port needs. When I drive over the 80th Street overpass and look out over the landscape I see an airport that was carved out of the land in 1940 and languished in poverty from 1983 to 2004, that now provides over 500 jobs for our community (with 1,000 more coming) and is a significant taxpayer and contributor to our economic and social fabric in Delta. I also see the landscape around the airport is still dominated by agriculture,

What’s the need for shop to go upscale? Professional show staged at arts centre Editor: prices like $75 for a ring a charity that raises money

Editor: Last Friday my wife, daughter and I had the rare privilege of seeing Tony Barton, a first class performance by an extremely talented professional performer, at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre. My 30 years in the motion picture exhibition business tells me I was

experiencing professionalism at its very best. It was a taping and the camera people added to the performance with their unobtrusive presence on and around the stage. As a senior in his 80s, classic rock is not the music I grew up with but he made it work for me. He not only had his audience

eating out of his hands, he had them screaming and dancing and having a very joyous time. The only thing that bothered me was that I couldn’t jump up and join them. Lots of luck, Tony, I hope this tape opens lots of doors for you. You certainly have the talent. Ken Atkey

Re: New name, new look for hospice store, July 6 I’m puzzled at Nancy Macey’s comment as to a cultural change and the whole connotation of getting away from the thrift store. Most people I have talked to all say the same thing that the thrift store is

for the Delta Hospice Care Centre in Ladner. The items that are donated from merchants and people from our community are of a high quality. The volunteers sort all merchandise and anything that is not saleable is recycled for good money and junk goes in the bin. So I have to ask: Why the change to a boutique with

and $250 for a purse? Is it because of egotism or possibly Macey, as executive director, and her select few that are paid require a raise? The hospice thrift store should be run like the Delta Hospital Auxiliary’s Ladner thrift shop where no one gets paid. William Savage

July 18, 2012 The Delta Optimist A11 Letters to the Editor

Living in Tsawwassen shouldn’t be on a first come, first served basis

Editor: The controversy surrounding the proposed development of Southlands is fascinating but I sometimes wonder if it is more a case of NIMBYitis Syndrome as in “not in my backyard” than genuine concern for our farmlands. Some proponents, I’m sure, are genuinely concerned for the existing agricultural lands. Others I wonder about. Personally, I think it would be a mistake to see the Century Group have its way but not because I want to see agricultural land preserved. Our current highway system simply cannot handle a greater population. One only needs to witness the masses of commuter vehicles, transport vehicles and ferry traffic plying Highway 17 each day as they all converge on the George Massey Tunnel. Let’s not forget northbound traffic along Highway 99.

I’m not suggesting that if the highways system were upgraded that I would be in favour of further development. Like many others, I too enjoy the relative peace and slower pace that presently exists. However, the fact is that change and growth are inevitable. The other day I visited my old neighbourhood in Vancouver. I was lucky to find an original house still standing on the block I grew up on. The neighbourhood and adjacent high school were predominantly Caucasian when I was a child. There has been a dramatic shift in the landscape and demographics during the past few decades, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Growth can be a good thing or perhaps not such a good thing. It all depends on one’s perspective. For some, increasing development will mean less privacy, more traffic con-

gestion, possibly a higher crime rate, compromised views and less green space. Many residents want the tunnel upgraded or even replaced, but at the same time they do not want the influx of new residents this will generate, which would be a natural consequence of any future upgrades. I did not realize that living out in Tsawwassen was based on a first come, first served criterion. Many complain about the proposed mall developments on Tsawwassen First Nation land adjacent to Highway 17 because they are fearful this will change Tsawwassen forever. It will, of course, but rest assured these same individuals against such development will be shopping in those very malls because it will be far better than going to Vancouver or Richmond. Regardless, Tsawwassen will change whether people like it not. Many will be

attracted to Tsawwassen because housing affordability is simply out of reach in other parts of the Lower Mainland. Others will move away from Tsawwassen because it is losing its laid back, slower paced appeal. Those who can adapt to change will. Those who cannot will have to redefine their priorities. This has always been the case since the first appearance of villages, towns and cities. I will not be surprised if in the next 25 years [or sooner] we see the majority of Southlands developed, a second crossing adjacent to the George Massey Tunnel constructed, a casino or two popping up on First Nations land and Tsawwassen’s population increasing significantly. Demographics are changing. Lifestyles are changing. Land use is changing. Sometimes we too have to change and adapt. David F. Horvath

Roberts Bank is a critical link in Pacific Flyway

Editor: I was biking along the dike north of Beach Grove on July 6 when I came across two consultants that had been conducting biological surveys of Boundary Bay for Port Metro Vancouver. They were returning to their car parked on the dike and when I asked, they indicated they were doing studies connected with the port’s Terminal 2 expansion at Roberts Bank. So, why out in Boundary Bay? They said they were obtaining baseline data for birds in the area, including Western sandpipers. This seemed strange. Asking around I have

uncovered a much more sinister explanation. What the port’s survey work on Boundary Bay may by trying to “prove” is the feeding area and biofilm on Roberts Bank that is so important to the survival of millions of birds, especially Western sandpipers, is not unique and exists elsewhere in the area. Thus, the port could argue the destruction of shorebird habitat by port expansion on Roberts Bank will not impact the birds because they will have other areas to feed. This argument, if it were to be made, is self-serving and scientifically spurious. We know that today Roberts

Bank is a critical link on the Pacific Flyway and used by millions of shorebirds during their migration to Arctic breeding grounds every year. Previous studies have shown that if a Western sandpiper stopover site is compromised, which could well be the case if Terminal 2 were to go ahead, then the entire species would suffer a population-level decline. Birds that could no longer use the site for fueling their long-distance migration would either not make it to the breeding grounds or would not be in good enough condition to breed once they got there. We need to “listen” to what the

birds themselves are telling us. Almost every Western sandpiper in the world uses Roberts Bank because it offers a uniquely rich habitat and far fewer are found in either Boundary Bay or Sturgeon Bank. This species has already suffered declines and we host one of a very few stopover and feeding sites in its migration chain. Were our “link” to be compromised, the entire species would be put in jeopardy. It is a risk not worth taking. Port Metro Vancouver must be stopped from any further expansion at Roberts Bank.

No need to plead with sons to finish plate BARBARA GUNN

LIVING MATTERS When my sons were little, they had issues with tomatoes. And beans. And cottage cheese. If there was any hope that they’d eat a glob of mashed potatoes, I had to turn it into a clown’s face. I cajoled. I pleaded. I

told them spinach would build their muscles and that carrots would make them see in the dark. It was a struggle. Given a choice, they would have lived on peanut butter and hot dogs and Kool-Aid. Acorn squash? Not a chance. This, a friend and I agree, is a curious thing, given how their appetites have, well, developed over the years. The friend and I have two

things in common. We both have two grown sons. We also have refrigerators that tend to be frequently bare. “It’s bizarre,” said the friend over lunch. “I’ll go to Costco, buy $200 worth of groceries, and by the next day, the fridge will be empty.” I get the picture. That’s because I also happen to live it. “I know,” I say, “I’ll cook a roast beef on Sunday, thinking it will last for another two meals. Not a

chance. They’ll inhale it on the Sunday — and this, after they’ve just had a bowl of pasta as an appetizer.” It’s interesting, given the way their appetites used to work. A bowl of pasta? Oh, they might have picked at it for 20 minutes, but it would never have disappeared. Not so today. “You know those packaged lasagnes?” the friend inquires. “The ones that say they’ll serve a family of six?

Whose family is that, I want to know? Each of my boys could eat the entire thing at one sitting.” “I hear you, sister,” I say. “I think that family of six consists of four children under the age of five. All female, and none fond of pasta.” It’s exasperating at times, I must admit. On the other hand, it’s also good to see they now eat tomatoes, beans, cottage cheese and acorn squash — and that’s 30 minutes after they’ve

finished the roast beef. It’s good to be past the days of cajoling, and beyond the clown-faced potatoes. There will, of course, eventually come a day when their appetites become more “normalized” and when $200 worth of groceries from Costco will last a day and a half, and maybe even two. I know exactly when that day will come. It will be when they are buying their own food.

Workshop in Ladner on issues with dementia

One in 11 Canadians over the age of 65 — approximately 500,000 people — lives with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. With age being the greatest risk factor for dementia, that number is expected to grow as Canada’s population ages. The latest census data shows 15.5 per cent of the Delta population is 65 or older, which is why the Alzheimer Society of B.C. will be offering its free workshop, Getting to Know Dementia, for area residents. The introductory workshop will run on Wednesday, July 25 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Harold & Veronica Savage Centre for Supportive Care, 4631 Clarence Taylor Cres. “Participants will receive basic information on dementia and the impact it has on the individual, their care partners and their support network,” explains Laura Feldman, the society’s First Link co-ordinator for South Delta and Richmond. The workshop provides an opportunity to learn about the diagnosis, different programs and services available in the community, the importance of planning for the future and strategies for living well. People with a diagnosis of dementia, care partners and family members are all invited to attend. Pre-registration is required, by contacting Feldman at 604-238-7393 or e-mailing lfeldman@ Donations would be gratefully accepted. For more information on the disease and other dementias, visit the Alzheimer Society of B.C. website at

Entries sought for writing contest

For the fifth consecutive year, Ladner writer and storyteller Laura Thomas is running a province-wide summer writing contest for aspiring young authors. The contest is free to enter and open to any B.C. resident between the ages of 10 and 17. There is also a special incentive category for children six to nine years old. Last summer, a record 80 stories were submitted from 16 municipalities across the province. “We did well in 2011, but I’m hoping that this summer we will attract even more of those young storytellers out there who have been inspired by TV, movies, games and websites to get creative and show their stuff,” says Thomas. As in previous years, Thomas is sticking to her rule of keeping the subject matter of the stories open and letting contestants decide what they want to write about. “It’s always best to write about those things in life that make you feel something,” says Thomas. “It makes the hard work of crafting a well-told story easier when you love your characters and story problem.” Thomas knows firsthand the hard work that comes with creating well-told tales. She is a busy writer with commitments that include a stint as the 2012 storyteller in residence at Science World in Vancouver, managing the writing department of an online game company for children and working on her novel, The Naked Storyteller, which is loosely based on her storytelling career. When asked why she is continuing to support young writers, Thomas says, “Honesty, I had to think long and hard about whether or not I had time this year to run the contest. What made me decide was the memory of what it was like growing up wanting to write, but not having a clue where to start. The world of books and publishing seemed very scary to me.” With the help of sponsors such as her mother — Ricki Willing of Sutton Seafair Realty who has donated the top prizes since the contest’s inception — Thomas is able to keep the contest free to enter. By keeping it free, and by being available to answer questions, Thomas hopes to encourage young writers around the province to par-

ticipate. The contest is open now and closes Aug. 31. Entries can be mailed to JA Short Story Contest c/o South Delta Recreation Centre, 1720-56 St., Delta, B.C., V4L 2B1. Winners will be announced late-September. Complete details, contest rules and past winning stories are online at www.

Sungod looks to make an Impact Delta physiotherapy clinics make computer-based neuro-cognitive exam available as part of concussion care BY


Sungod Sports + Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Clinics have another tool to use in their approach to comprehensive concussion care. The clinics are now using an Impact test, a computerbased neuro-cognitive exam previously available only to high level athletes. Clinical director Travis Wolsey says it’s an added resource for doctors and local athletes. “People want access to this kind of testing so it’s being made available,” he says. While physiotherapy works on the rehab of muscles and joints, along with sense and balance, the Impact test shows how the brain is functioning, he explains. “When you put those together then we have a better idea of how this person’s healing and where it is appropriate to return back to sport,” says Wolsey. “But ultimately it’s the doctor’s say. But here in physio we give the doctors that information so they can make a really good choice.” Physiotherapist Jen Jones describes the Impact exam as a 20-minute test that measures symptoms, verbal

and visual memory, processing speed and reaction time. Awareness surrounding concussions, which are complex injuries that require a comprehensive and individualized approach, is rising, she notes. Sungod takes a “multimodal” rehab approach. A physical exam looks at the neck and shoulder areas while a vestibular assessment could be conducted to look at inner-ear issues. “If someone has neck issues or vestibular issues on top of a concussion — that’s what makes things last for so long,” says Wolsey. “Most concussions resolve within seven to 10 days. But if you have these confounding instances they can last a lot longer.” He notes that, ideally, athletes would obtain a baseline test (to measure brain function) before suffering an injury. “The data can then be compared to the pre-injury baseline as well as age norms.” Concussions are an unfortunate part of sport, he adds. “But in becoming more effective in their management through proper identification, multimodal

Tsawwassen Dodgers capture South Fraser Spring Interlock League For the first time in over 15 years, a Midget AA baseball club from Tsawwassen has captured the South Fraser Spring Interlock League. The Tsawwassen Dodgers compiled a 14-1-1 record while competing in the strongest baseball interlock in the Lower Mainland. The South Fraser league involves teams from South Delta, North Delta, Surrey, White Rock, Cloverdale, Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast.

The Dodgers started the season strong by winning their first seven games as well as a 7-7 tie with Cloverdale, before experiencing their first loss to their cross-town rivals from Ladner. After the loss, Tsawwassen would go undefeated the rest of the regular season to capture the coveted league pennant. The clinching victories came on the last weekend of the regular season by sweeping Surrey in a doubleheader, 14-0 in the first

Goalie & forward get regional camp invites Goaltender Nathan Alalouf and forward Mitch Walter are among 68 players from B.C. and Alberta that have been invited to the U17 Pacific Regional Summer Camp later this month in Kamloops. B.C. Hockey and Hockey Alberta each identified 34 U17 male athletes (four goaltenders, 12 defencemen, 18 forwards) from their respective provincial evaluation camps to participate in the joint regional

camp. From the regional camp, players will be scouted with their club teams until November when the Team Pacific Management Committee announces the 22-player roster that will represent Team Pacific at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. That event is slated to start in late December in Victoriaville/ Drummondville, Quebec. Alalouf and Walter are

both South Delta Minor Hockey graduates who played this past season in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League with the Greater Vancouver Canadians. The 2013 World Under17 Hockey Challenge will bring together the top players in the world born in 1996 or later. The tournament is made up of 10 teams: five from Canada and five international.

Rower Morgan Stade took home a silver medal from the recent B.C. Championships.


Tsaw. rower wins silver at B.C. Championships Morgan Stade was racing in only his third regatta

Tsawwassen’s Morgan Stade raced to a silver medal finish with the Burnaby Lake Rowing Club junior boys straight quad at the recent B.C. Championships and Challenge West Rowing Regatta at Elk Lake in Victoria. Stade has been competitively swimming for the Boundary Bay Bluebacks since the age of six, but says he has always wanted to be a rower. Local resident Katherine Dawe and the incredible Burnaby Lake Rowing Club introduced him to the sport. He started training at Burnaby last September and has only been row-

ing competitively for three months, with the B.C. Championships being his third regatta. “I was excited that I had the opportunity to compete at B.C. Champs and I know I would not have been able to get there without the amazing coaching and training by Cinda Ewton and Laris Grikis at BLRC,” said Stade. Three of the four boys in his boat were “Junior B” and rowed up for the “Junior A” category. Rowing in the second seat for his crew, Stade and Burnaby teammates Duncan McAlister, Sawyer Brown and Jake Elword placed silver.

“I was nervous, not just because I am a fairly new rower, but because we were the youngest quad versing five other top Jr. A boats. Our start was very tight, but we managed to pull out just past the halfway mark, and we battled for second place,” said the 15-year-old. This year, more than 600 athletes from Canada and the U.S. competed in 75 different rowing events at the regatta. Stade hopes to one day see a thriving high school rowing program in Delta that offers the same opportunities to teens as those he has been given through membership in the Burnaby Lake Rowing Club.

The Pee Wee A Red Sox celebrate after clinching their division championship in Cloverdale.

Red Sox capture division The Ladner Pee Wee A Red Sox baseball team recently capped off the spring season by clinching the tier two division championship in Cloverdale. During the “rainy” season, the team experienced many ups and downs, including a second place finish at the Kathy Thomas Tournament over the Victoria Day weekend in Surrey. As the playoffs started, the Red Sox were grouped with North Delta, Newton,

White Rock and Cloverdale. The locals rolled to three straight victories to advance to the semi-finals. With home field advantage, they prevailed once more to face their longtime rival — Cloverdale Cubs — in the championship game. Ladner took control in the third inning and never looked back in a 12-4win. The coaches were impressed by the hard work and commitment put forward by a team that had struggled so much at the
