Teaching excellence recognized

Sacred Heart Elementary’s Wanda Graham earns award from prime minister for her innovative methods BY


A Ladner private school teacher has been recognized for her innovative methods with a 2012 Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence. Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the recipients of the annual award last week, a list that included Wanda Graham, a Grade 6 teacher at Sacred Heart Elementary. The Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence honour outstanding elementary and secondary school teachers who, through the innovative use of information and communications technologies in the classroom, help students develop the knowledge and skills to succeed in the digital economy. Graham was recognized in particular for successfully incorporating technology into every day learning in the classroom. “They have to be entertained, so we have to go with the flow and we have to move forward. It doesn’t matter whether I’m an older lady or not, an older teacher, I need to move ahead with technology, whatever works to keep their attention,” she told the Optimist. The future of education is very much present in her classroom at Sacred Heart today, with such devices as iPads and interactive boards.

Sacred Heart Grade 6 teacher Wanda Graham was honoured for incorporating technology into the classroom. Principal Wendell MacCormack is jubilant about the award, saying it’s all the more impressive considering Graham was considering retirement at age 60 four years ago, due in part to uncertainty about new technology.

“She was going to retire because for her it was, ‘I can’t even turn a computer on.’ Now the Prime Minister’s Award is in the area of technology because she’s a true leader in technology,” he said. MacCormack said teachers

from schools around the Lower Mainland are paying Sacred Heart a visit to see how the school successfully integrates the latest technologies into the classroom. Graham said even her young students are extraordinarily tech



savvy. “I think it’s the children that have helped me move ahead,” she said. This year, awards were given to 94 teachers/educators from across Canada.

Burns Bog Society appealing ruling on new highway BY


The Burns Bog Conservation Society is appealing a recent court decision dismissing the society’s

lawsuit against the federal government. The society initiated legal action last year in a case involving the South Fraser Perimeter Road. It took Ottawa to Federal Court in

Vancouver, claiming the government breached an environmental covenant to protect the bog when the highway was allowed to be built in proximity to the wetland. 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 of mitigation measures. The society also contends the

highway’s proximity contravenes the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and the federal Species at Risk Act.

Collaboration is name of game

Collaborate Delta, which officially launches next week, formed to encourage communication among local groups BY


A society has been formed aimed at fostering communication, sharing knowledge and encouraging collaboration among the many organizations in Delta. Several residents got together to form Collaborate Delta in the hopes it would become a valuable resource that can be utilized in North Delta, Tsawassen and Ladner. “Some of the groups like us or Deltasssist work across Delta, but it’s not always easy to reach everyone. We figure that if we’re in that situation, then there’s probably a lot of other organizations in Delta that are in that situation,” explained Mark Sakai, executive director of the Delta Museum and Archives and one of the first members of Collaborate Delta. “Our goals as a museum are very similar to the goals of this organization: looking for opportunities to collaborate and ways to share knowledge and even do things as simple as, let’s say, if you’re doing a major fundraiser, two organizations are not doing their fundraisers on the same night, or plan their AGMs on the same afternoon,” Sakai said. Deltassist executive


Delta Museum and Archives executive director Mark Sakai says much can be gained if knowledge is shared among organizations. director Doug Sabourin as well as John Thornburn and former municipal councillor Anne Peterson helped form the group, which is having an official launch on Monday, Oct. 15. Sakai said they saw a gap when it came to community non-profit organizations networking to share resources, knowledge or collaborating, and possibly even forming partnerships. “Delta, as everyone

knows, is a diverse community both demographically and geographically, so a lot of times it’s difficult for community not-forprofits to get together to try to develop a synergy that helps everybody out... Over the past eight months to a year, we’ve been working at this idea, getting the society set up and doing the mission, vision and goals work you need to do,” Sakai said. He noted it’s still early

days for the organization and members will have to wait for the response from community groups, but it’s hoped the concept will be embraced. “Most of the people we’ve been talking to, so far, think it’s a great idea. We’re hoping on the (Oct.) 15th we’ll have a good turnout and people will be excited. We’ll have speakers talk about some of the non-traditional partnerships

they’ve been involved with and say how these kinds of relationships can work and can be beneficial for everyone,” Sakai added. Peterson said Collaborate Delta would provide an opportunity for people to engage and find out what’s going on in the three communities. “What we will be doing is providing opportunities for people to get together, network, share informa-

tion, share resources, do all those kinds of things that can stretch that grant dollar even further, or coordinate activities so a bunch of charity events don’t happen on the same day. “One of the things we’ve discovered in this processes of developing the society is how many organizations exist in Delta. My list has about 350 organizations and counting, and this does not include all the school PACs and all the different sports organizations. That’s an amazing group of organizations and people doing everything from arts right down to a zoology club in a school,” Peterson said. She said groups can assist each other in many ways, including sharing knowledge and experiences when it comes to making grant applications, for example, or accessing the results of studies conducted by local service groups. The website at will be up and running at the official launch, as well as the group’s Facebook page. The official launch on Oct. 15 will take place at Envision Financial’s Sunshine Hills branch, 6481 Scott Rd., North Delta, starting at 5:30 p.m. For more information, e-mail or call 604-317-0934.

Fire rating raised to extreme as dry weather persists BY


Delta’s fire danger rating is back up to extreme due to the unseasonably warm dry weather. Rainfall in the region was so low last month that the Lower Mainland recorded its driest September in more than 100 years

Last Thursday, the fire danger rating was raised from moderate to extreme. Delta fire Chief Dan Copeland said the move is totally out of the ordinary for this time of year. The prohibition of open air burning and smoking in parks has also been extended. On June 1, the fire

APPEAL from page 1 Using a grant from West Coast Environmental Law, the society alleged the federal government is an equal, and therefore responsible, partner. However, a Federal Court judge last month ruled

against the society, prompting the group to file an appeal last week. Society president Eliza Olson maintains the SFPR is an infringement of the government’s obligations under a conservation cov-

chief cancelled all burning permits and prohibited all types of outdoor fire until further notice. The ban includes all areas of the municipality as well as campfires and open cooking (briquette and propane barbecues) in all Delta parks, with the exception of Metro Vancouver-controlled fire pits in Deas Island and

Boundary Bay regional parks. Copeland said the fire danger rating would be reassessed this week, adding a significant amount of rain — at least 20 to 40 millimetres — is needed to extinguish the fire threat. “We need significant penetration on the forested area floor to get us out of

the threat for some type of fire,” Copeland said. 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 to 911 and any unauthorized activity that poses a risk of fire to the police’s non-emergency line at 604-946-4411.

enant. “The society doesn’t want to stop the road. We want it moved. Every time you scoop a bucket of peat out of the bog, you are putting 10 times more carbon into the atmosphere, than if you were scooping a bucket of sand off the beach,” she said.

The society says it believes the construction of the SFPR threatens the bog’s survival. The Corporation of Delta wasn’t named in the lawsuit. A recent engineering department report to Delta council notes that a Burns Bog Mitigation Monitoring

Program report indicates the mitigation measures are working well. The new highway is anticipated to be substantially completed by December 2013. Burns Bog was recently granted a Ramsar status, an international recognition of the importance of

the wetlands. Delta made the Ramsar application two years ago in conjunction with Metro Vancouver and senior governments. In 2004, four partners — federal, provincial, regional and municipal governments — jointly purchased 2,042 hectares (5,045 acres) of Burns Bog.

Man pleaded guilty last week following close of preliminary hearing BY


It will be several more months before the man who admitted to the 2010 murder of 15-year-old Laura Szendrei will learn his fate. The 20-year-old, who cannot be named because he was 17 at the time of the crime, last Thursday entered a guilty plea to seconddegree murder in the case at the close of the preliminary hearing in Surrey Provincial Court.

Open house planned to discuss proposal adjacent to bog BY


The company behind a plan to redesignate a property adjacent to Burns Bog is holding another public open house next week to present information on the Official Community Plan amendment application and receive input. MK Delta Lands Inc. this year submitted an the application to change a 36-hecatre (89-acre) parcel from “resource study area” to “comprehensive mixed use.” The site is a rectangular piece located along the east side of Highway 91 immediately south of 72nd Avenue. It’s located next to the bog’s ecological conversancy area, but outside the protected zone. The application doesn’t specify what kind of uses would be built on the parcel, as “the exact type and mix of land uses would be determined following consultation with the community.” According to the company, it’s exploring a range of high-order mixed uses that are currently not provided in the community. The application also requires an amendment to Metro Vancouver’s

Regional Growth Strategy. In 2004, four levels of government — federal, provincial, regional and municipal — purchased about 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres) of the bog for $73 million. Five times the size of Stanley Park, it was designated as the Burns Bog Ecological Reserve, a protected area. However, 200 hectares (500 acres) owned by MK Delta Lands Group were not included in the purchase. The site was also not part of the recent international Ramsar designation granted to Burns Bog and surrounding areas. The Burns Bog Conservation Society has been lobbying against the rezoning proposal, saying the company wants to destroy part of the bog. In a letter distributed to area residents, society president Eliza Olson, who has been gathering a petition, also pointed to noise and traffic concerns. The MK Delta Lands open house will be held Thursday, Oct. 18 at North Delta Secondary, 1144782nd Ave., from 6 to 9 p.m. For more information, check the company’s website at mkdeltalandsgroup. com.

TFN chief backs plan to replace Massey Tunnel BY


The Tsawwassen First Nation wholeheartedly supports Premier Christy Clark’s recent announcement that a new crossing is needed to replace the aging George Massey Tunnel. “We look forward to seeing how the province’s plans develop for the Massey Tunnel replacement,” said recently-elected Chief Bryce Williams. “We understand that Mayor (Lois) Jackson and the Corporation of Delta has indicated their strong support for improvements to the regional traffic network. “We look forward to working with B.C., Delta and other partners to ensure the transportation needs of the South Fraser region are met,” Williams said. At the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention Clark announced she

plans to work with Delta and Richmond mayors on a tunnel replacement, which could be either another tunnel or a bridge. A replacement, though, is likely at least a decade away. The TFN will be the site of major commercial, residential and industrial development in the coming years, all expected to generate much more traffic at the current crossing. Using figures from a TFN-commissioned consultant, a Delta engineering department report earlier this year noted that by a full TFN build-out in 2031, it’s expected the total extra traffic generated will be 3,600 vehicles in the morning peak hour, 7,100 vehicles during the afternoon peak and 9,000 during the Saturday peak. Despite a series of proposed road upgrades to accommodate the extra traffic, the report notes there’s

Former gallery owner returns to read from book on West Coast

Sabaka’s Sandy Martin is now a full-time writer on Galiano Island DAVE WILLIS

Three contributors to Living Artfully: Reflections from the Far West Coast will be reading from the new book in Tsawwassen on Saturday. Former Tsawwassen resident and local business owner Sandy Martin will be one of them. Martin is now a full-time writer living on Galiano Island. Her submission to the book, which features over 40 contributors, is a piece about what it’s like to be a writer outside all the amenities of an urban mainstream.

“I loved Tsawwassen and I also love Galiano,” she said. She owned Sabaka, an artisan gallery at the Town Centre Mall, from the early 1980s to 2005. She retired to write full-time. Martin, who writes prose (mainly creative non-fiction) as well as poetry, has had a number of pieces published in recent years. “It was a very hard decision to close my business. I loved my work and I loved my clientele in Tsawwassen,” she said.

“I’m really looking forward to hopefully seeing some people from my Sabaka career. Because I’d been there for 24 years, you really got to know a lot of people and a lot of families. They were the core of my business. I’m really excited about maybe seeing some of their faces.” Other contributors reading at the event will be

dancer and educator Celeste Snowber and Tsawwassen’s Kit Grauer, an art educator with 27 years of teaching experience at UBC. According to the book’s synopsis, it “offers unique perspectives and insights to the interrelationship of creativity and geography through intimate portrayals about the lives of artists.” Grauer said her submission is about retreating to Galiano Island. “It’s a real collection of people’s responses to living on the West Coast,” she said. The book reading is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Albany Books.

Every action has a reaction, particularly when it comes to traffic. I certainly don’t envy the task facing engineers these days when they’re continually asked to devise ways to keep more and more vehicles flowing along roadways that can only accommodate so much traffic. Last month, in an effort to help Crescent Island farmers get in and out of their fields in a timely manner during harvest season, Delta implemented a series of traffic measures to keep Tilbury area commuters out of the farm zone. It’s hard to argue with initiatives that are implemented to ensure farmers’ livelihoods are sustained, but the moves meant long lines along River Road and 62B Street during the afternoon rush became even longer. The understandable frustration voiced by those inching along in that congestion on a daily basis resulted in a change to the signal lights at the approach to the George Massey Tunnel. That lowtech action, which keeps the light green longer for 62B Street drivers and has improved their plight to some degree, has created, you guessed it, a reaction with others that also use that interchange. Now drivers heading north on Highway 99 that take the Highway 17 exit to get to Ladner, Tsawwassen and the ferry terminal must wait longer to make their left turn. This, in turn, backs up traffic down the off-ramp and onto the highway, a procession so lengthy and so slow moving that it can make your wife a half-hour late for a bank appointment on a Friday afternoon. Even the Highway 10 exit from northbound Highway 99 can now back up as drivers look to circumvent the inhospitable situation that awaits a few kilometres away. Pushing traffic congestion from one spot to the next is obviously not the answer, so hopefully the opening of the South Fraser Perimeter Road late next year can provide some relief. Tilbury traffic will be able to access the new highway from its back door, providing many with an easier exit. Drivers headed to Tsawwassen and the port should be able to bypass the tunnel congestion completely, while those bound for Ladner should find far less traffic to battle. Those needing to go northbound through the tunnel, well, you’ll have easier access to Highway 99, but with one lane through the tube, I don’t see that commute getting any better. It’s by no means perfect, but at least the SFPR offers engineers some additional asphalt in their ongoing struggle to keep vehicles moving around this region.

Back to the future as some issues just won’t go away TOM SIBA PUBLISHER’S PERSPECTIVE After an 11-year absence, it is nice to be back at the Delta Optimist. Since I left at the end of August 2001, I spent nine years with the Business in Vancouver Media Group and almost two years pleasantly retired. When I left, the Optimist and its fellow newspapers in Lower Mainland Publishing were owned by CanWest Global, which unfortunately imploded under a mountain of debt. Late last year, the Optimist, among others, was purchased by Vancouver-based Glacier Media, the company I worked for prior to retiring. In a rash act, they asked me to come out of retirement and put in some time back at the Optimist. So a day after my 64th birthday, I was back at work. I thought I was a bit long in the tooth to be going back

to work, but I recalled that back in 1989, I convinced Edgar Dunning to restart writing his column when he was 79 — and he kept doing it for over another 20 years! Although much has changed since I left, much is familiar. Back in 1989 when I started the South Delta Today in competition to the Optimist, I hurried the start date because I wanted to have the newspaper up and running during the original Southlands hearings, which I thought would last a couple of weeks and be good for readership. I needn’t have hurried. The hearings went on for months and set some kind of record for the longest public hearings in Canadian history — if not the Western world. Now, 23 years later, we’re still discussing the future of the old Spetifore property now owned by Century Group. One of the main complaints against the development proposal then was the increase in traffic it would bring. Those who commuted from South Delta to north of the Fraser River were stuck with using the George Massey Tunnel, which was typically clogged during rush hours and was destined to get

worse. Last Friday, the Page 3 story in the Optimist was the ongoing congestion for vehicles trying to exit the Tilbury industrial area either to head south to South Delta or head north through the tunnel. Supposedly some tinkering with the traffic signals has helped mitigate the problem. However, in the same issue of the Optimist were stories on the Roberts Bank port expansion and the densification of the Marina Garden Estates. These plus other proposed developments will no doubt tax the tunnel further — although the South Fraser Perimeter Road should get much of the truck traffic off Highway 17 when it is complete. Our premier has said they will begin discussions on the tunnel in the next 10 years. Perhaps in 20 years we will have increased crossing capacity, but don’t hold your breath. I think they should reopen my old favourite, the 72nd Street cow tunnel under Highway 99 so at least cars could avoid the mess at highways 17 and 99. It’s a lot cheaper — and could be done in my lifetime.

Forget tube, extend Canada Line Editor: Before our government spends billions of dollars replacing the George Massey Tunnel, perhaps it should consider extending the Canada Line across the Fraser River into Delta and out to the ferry terminal. Give the average commuter a “real” alternative. Look at any major city in the world and you’ll find people will always travel the fastest way possible. If there were a park and ride for the Canada Line south of the Fraser River, people would use it because you’d be able to get into downtown Vancouver in 45 min-

utes or less — without the headache of fighting traffic. If you also connect this to the ferry terminal, all of a sudden you reduce a portion of traffic volume through the tunnel. Before you know it, the TFN will have one of the biggest shopping destinations in the province. A Canada Line expansion would also give shoppers another way to get to this destination. My proposal would mean spending less of the taxpayers’ money, easing vehicle traffic through the tunnel and creating a greener environment. E. Graham

Personal experience motivates advocate

Krista Frazee offers support with Alzheimer journey Like many residents of South Delta, Krista Frazee’s world has been touched by Alzheimer’s disease. Her exposure to the impact of dementia began in her late teens and early 20s when both of her grandparents were living with vascular dementia. It was an experience that shaped Frazee’s career, and also her life. “I had a very close relationship with my grandmother, who, throughout her journey with dementia, inspired me to learn more about the disease and how to help caregivers like myself,” she says. That inspiration led Frazee to pursue her passion full-time. She enrolled in university, volunteered for the non-profit Alzheimer Society, first in Nova Scotia and then in B.C., and worked in the field of seniors support services. It also led her to where she is today: the newly-

appointed support and education co-ordinator for Richmond-South Delta for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “My passion for learning and supporting people with dementia and caregivers is still as strong as it was back in my early years,” says Frazee. She now provides a variety of dementia education workshops to caregivers, health care providers and the public; coordinates and facilitates support groups for caregivers and persons in early stages of dementia or memory loss; and raises awareness about the society, its programs and services. And, coming full circle, she also finds herself coordinating and mentoring volunteers — the people filling the same vital roles she once did. “I thrive on being able to make a positive difference in people’s lives. “I look forward to continuing to support

Krista Frazee caregivers and persons with dementia along their journey, emphasizing personhood, the importance of self-care and trying to embrace the positive aspects of the journey.” Frazee holds a master’s degree in gerontology from Simon Fraser University. Richmond-South Delta families can contact Frazee at the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s Richmond Resource Centre, 305-6411 Buswell St., by calling 604-2387390 or e-mailing kfrazee@

If you assemble three Delta residents in a room, chances are good one of them knows someone with Alzheimer’s disease. That’s how prevalent the disease has become, according to the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. The statistics are more than just numbers for Krista Frazee, the society’s support and education co-ordinator for Richmond and Delta. She works with local families every day who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias

— just like 36 per cent of Canadians who know someone living with the disease. To help local families, the society will run a free introductory workshop, Getting to Know Dementia, from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 20. Participants will receive basic information about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, and the challenges of receiving a diagnosis. Participants will learn about the different types of support available throughout the dementia

journey, and how to begin planning for the future. People with a diagnosis of dementia, care partners and family members are all invited to attend. Pre-registration is required for the workshop, which takes place at Delta Hospice’s Harold & Veronica Savage Centre for Supportive Care, 4631 Clarence Taylor Cres. Contact Frazee at 604-2387393 or e-mail Donations would be gratefully accepted.

Ladner woman to receive Life After Stroke Award Rosemarie Hurst to be recognized in arts category BY


Ladner’s Rosemarie Hurst found out last week she’s the winner of a 2012 Phyllis Delaney Life After Stroke Award in the arts category. Hurst, a singer/songwriter and nature photographer, said hearing the news was really exciting and a real surprise as it was a province-wide award. She had a “double whammy” in 2009 with a stroke in June of that year followed by a ruptured brain aneurysm that November. She said it’s been a slow recovery as she gets extremely fatigued and has short-term memory loss. Things like lights, noise and crowds can be really

confusing, making a trip downtown on transit, for example, overwhelming. “All that being said, I am extremely happy to be alive and kicking in spite of the many challenges that these events have put me through. It has turned my life upside down a bit, but I am here and every day I wake up feeling very grateful to still be here in this beautiful world,” she said in an email to the Optimist. “And, most importantly I take one day at a time and focus on what I can do rather than on what I can’t.” Hurst released her second CD, Faithfully Yours — Ballads of E. Pauline Johnson, last year and held an exhibit of her nature photography work in April. Hurst is working on putting

together a book of poetry enhanced with her own photographs, which she hopes to publish next summer. She is a member of the South Delta Stroke Recovery Group, puts together the group’s newsletter and mentors in the computer room at McKee Seniors’ Recreation Centre. Life After Stroke Awards are given out by the Stroke Recovery Association of British Columbia to “recognize individuals who have overcome adversity following a stroke, and caregivers who have provided support to those affected by stroke.” There are four categories. Hurst will pick up her award at an Oct. 27 Stroke Recovery Association of British Columbia event.

Rosemarie Hurst, who suffered a stroke in 2009, continues with her artistic undertakings, including releasing a CD last year and holding a photography exhibit this spring. She’s currently working on a book of poetry that’s enhanced with her own photos.

Optometrist giving gift of vision

Dr. Joan Hansen donating eye exam fees to World Sight Day Challenge to help less fortunate

Dr. Joan Hansen of the Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic is joining the World Sight Day Challenge to help give the gift of vision to people in developing countries and underserved communities. For World Sight Day on Oct. 12, Hansen will donate her eye exam fees to help the more than 600 million people in the world who are blind or vision impaired simply because they do not have access to an eye exam or glasses. “I have supported Optometry Giving Sight for seven years and am proud to donate to such a worthwhile cause,” said Hansen. “The World Sight Day Challenge is a great way to help support the millions of people who don’t have access to the basic eye care that we can take for granted.” Hansen was inspired by stories like that of Loid Semente, who is one of the students training to become an optometrist with the Mozambique Eyecare



Dr. Joan Hansen of the Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic will be supporting the World Sight Day Challenge for a seventh year by donating eye exam fees collected this Friday to the cause. Project, supported by Optometry Giving Sight. Semente will be one of the first optometrists in her

country. She is passionate about optometry because of the significant impact it can have for the people

of Mozambique. “Sight is empowering. For some, access to eye care is the first step towards getting an

education, or providing for your family,” she said. Children are especially vulnerable. Providing vision correction to a school-age child can literally transform their entire life. Just $5 can provide an eye examination and a pair of glasses for someone in a developing country. Hansen is also inviting her patients to make a donation at her practice throughout October. Optometry Giving Sight guarantees that 85 per cent of all funds raised by optometrists and their patients go directly to supporting programs that give sight to those most in need. Funds raised from World Sight Day Challenge will be directed to 35 projects across 23 countries around the world. Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic is at 214-1077 56th St. For more information about Optometry Giving Sight and the World Sight Day Challenge, visit www.

I have bought books online. I have bought Tshirts online. And I have bought gift cards online. But that’s about it. I have never bought a car online, like a friend of mine once did. But then, I suppose I am something of a rarity when it comes to online shopping. Why, I have pals who do 100 per cent of their Christmas shopping while hunkered over a computer screen. And this is not because they live nowhere near a store. They swear, oh, by the convenience. They don’t have to battle for a parking spot. They don’t have to stand in a line-up. They don’t have to wait half an hour for a sales clerk, only to find out that the dress in the window isn’t available

in petites. Besides, one told me not long ago, you can do all your shopping at two in the morning. Now I don’t know about you, but I have better things to do at two in the morning, most of which involve a pillow and a queen-sized bed. If I was up at two, it would be because the bathroom called, not the website for Eddie Bauer. “And what happens,” I asked, “if that coat you ordered is a little too tight? Or isn’t the colour you thought it would be?” “You send it back!” the friend said. “It’s as easy as pie!” “I’ve never understood that expression,” I said. “What’s easy about pie?” But pie is another story. Back to online shopping. Granted, I’ll agree there might be something somewhat convenient about ordering, oh, a blanket or tablecloth. But when I want to purchase, say, a skirt, I like to do the old-fashioned thing:

touch the goods, try on the goods, and verify the goods haven’t been purchased by someone else and then returned with a tiny toothpaste stain. I honestly do not mind driving to a store and hunting for a parking spot, if only because it’s a given that I’ll end up finding something else that wasn’t on my shopping list. Why, the last time I went to a mall to buy a pair of runners, I came out with the runners, plus two pairs of jeans, a set of drinking glasses, a slow cooker and a bottle of $60 perfume that the saleswoman said made me smell divine. Talk about a good shopping day. “You see?” asked my online shopping buddy. “Another good thing about shopping on the web: no pushy salespeople.” Not exactly true, I said, and then tried to state my case. You can do a million things online. But you cannot sample perfume.

October 10, 2012 The Delta Optimist A15 Car Care

Winter is a beautiful time to experience Canada. Unfortunately, it can also be a dangerous time, particularly when you are driving. Icy roads can be treacherous, and a dead battery can leave you stranded. Car Care Canada’s website shares these winter maintenance tips: • Check the battery. If it is four years old or older, have it checked at a service station to make sure it will start in bitter temperatures. • Check the fluids. Top up power steering, brake and transmission fluid; oil; and antifreeze/coolant. (Antifreeze/coolant should be flushed and refilled every two years or 50,000 kilometres.) Replace your windshield fluid with one specially formulated to cut through ice and snow. • Consider winter weight oil. Consult your owner’s manual to see if a winter weight oil is recommended for cold months, and remember to change your oil every 5,000 kilometres.

• Check the function of your heater, defroster, lights and windshield wipers. Replace your wiper blades every six months, and consider the added power of winter blades. • Change to snow tires. Traction is essential when you are driving on snow and ice. Winter tires offer traction, peace of mind and, often, a discount on your car insurance premium. • Repair cracks or dings in your windshield. Freezing temperatures can turn small nicks into gaping cracks that destroy your windshield. Have them repaired before it’s too late. • Keep your gas tank at least half full. A fuller tank resists moisture/ice formation inside your gas line. • Be well equipped. Keep these items in your vehicle in case of emergency: snow brush/ice scraper, booster cables, flashlight, first-aid kit, blanket, extra clothes, bottled water, snacks and necessary medications.



Four-wheel drive not a substitute for winter tires

For owners of light trucks and SUVs, snowy roads and winter driving conditions can seem less perilous than they would to a small-car driver. With features such as four-wheel drive, larger tires and a heavier build, drivers of these vehicles often feel they have the tools needed to conquer Canada’s winter roads. However, relying on these features alone can give drivers a false sense of security during these tough travel months. The truth is, without quality winter tires,

However, the moment even one tire hits a snowy or icy surface, the reduced traction combined with the still-even torque-load distribution can cause tires to spin. Winter tires, designed to grip these surfaces, will help prevent this from occurring. More information is available online at www.

Oil changes are probably the most common of automotive services — performed so frequently that consumers may often pass up the opportunity to get more for their service dollar. With automakers trying to gain increased efficiency, the “ordinary” oil change is becoming more comprehensive. Not only are companies recommending synthetic motor oil, but many automakers are developing their own oil specifications. “The best way for consumers to ensure that they’re getting optimal protection and using a product that meets factory specs is to ask a few questions to their service provider,” says Jay Buckley, an ASE-certified master mechanic and technical training manager at Fram Group. Doing your homework by reading the owner’s manual is always a plus, he notes, but simply knowing what to ask will go a long way. Here are Buckley’s recom-

mendations: • Ask what’s included in the service. Many dealers and service stations bundle several different inspections in with the oil change. It’s a great time for a mechanic to inspect brakes, hoses and undercar components to help stop a small problem from becoming a big and expensive one. In most cases, these additional inspections are a bargain. • Ask if the right specification of motor oil is being used. Oil-change facilities like to use “bulk oil,” which as the name implies, is a single viscosity grade and specification of oil bought in bulk from a supplier. It will often suffice for many motor vehicles, but certainly not all. If your car or SUV requires a specialized formula of motor oil, such as high-efficiency 0W-20 synthetic, or a manufacturer’s specification, such as GM dexos, this “standard” oil

may cause problems and potentially invalidate the new-car warranty. • Ask if a premium oil filter will be installed. Often overlooked during an oil change is the quality of the oil filter. A premium filter, such as Fram Ultra, can trap more damaging dirt from circulating through your engine. In standardized tests, this filter had double the dirt-holding capacity of the leading economy filter brands’ average. The ability to trap and hold harmful particles for as much as 24,000 kilometres becomes much more important as automakers extend service intervals, often to just once a year. How your mechanic handles these questions can help you determine if you trust his or her work. Not only that, but you’ll become an informed consumer, more knowledgeable about protecting your automotive investment.

Ensure headrest in right spot

Turbocharger improves fuel efficiency As more stringent greenhouse gas emission standards for light duty vehicles are announced in Canada, vehicle manufacturers are improving engine efficiency using innovative technologies such as turbochargers. The idea behind the technology is this: engines can achieve more power if more air and fuel can be forced into the cylinders for each combustion cycle. Turbochargers do this deliberately. How? By forcing air into the engine. There are two benefits to this — first, there is more air and fuel providing more power

and second, less work is required from the piston to pull the air/fuel mixture into the combustion chamber. Basically, turbochargers use the otherwise wasted pressure and energy from the exhaust to drive a turbine, which is attached to a compressor. As a result, turbochargers allow a smaller capacity engine to achieve the same performance as a larger displacement, naturally-aspirated engine, thereby reducing fuel consumption by reducing weight. The use of a downsized turbocharged engine can reduce fuel consumption

Dan Batista

by up to seven per cent for equal vehicle performance. Over 10 years, this reduction could result in fuel savings of about $1,700 and carbon dioxide (CO2) reductions of about 3,200 kg. Over 10 years, this would be the same as removing about one in 15 cars from Canadian roads. Turbochargers and engine downsizing are one of many fuel-efficient technologies available nowadays. There are many others that can be found on the Natural Resources Canada website at www.

While buckling seatbelts is second nature when getting into a car, how many of us think to adjust the headrest? Reports show that headrests are one of the most overlooked safety features in motor vehicles today and many don’t realize the important role they play in preventing neck, brain and spinal cord injuries. “Headrests are designed to work alongside the seatbelt so that when an accident occurs, it prevents the head from twisting backwards, which subsequently results in whiplash,” explains Mauro Convertini, an insurance and claims

• Clean, flush and put new antifreeze in the cooling system. As a general rule of thumb, this should be done every two years.

• Make sure heaters, defrosters and wipers work properly. Consider winter wiper blades and use cold weather washer fluid. As a general rule, wiper blades should be replaced every 12 months. • Have the battery and charging system checked for optimum performance. Cold weather is hard on batteries. • Check the tire tread depth and tire pressure. If snow and ice are a problem in your area, consider special tires designed to grip slick roads. During winter, tire pressure should be checked weekly. • Be diligent about changing the oil and filter every 5,000 kms. Dirty oil can spell trouble in winter. Consider changing to a “winter weight”: oil if you live in a cold climate. Have your technician check the fuel, air and transmission filters at the same time.

• If you’re due for a tune-up, have it done before winter sets in. Winter magnifies existing problems such as pings, hard starts, sluggish performance or rough riding. • Have the brakes checked. This braking system is the vehicles most important safety item.

Canadian drivers follow three simple steps in order to prevent injuries associated with improper headrest position: • The top of the headrest should be in a straight line with the top of your head. • Position the centre of your headrest so that it is slightly above the top of the ear. • Ensure the distance between the headrest and the back of the head is between five and 10 centimetres. • Families with multiple drivers must remember to adjust the headrest for each person.

expert at Aviva Canada. “Drivers can sustain an injury from an incorrectly adjusted headrest even at speeds as low as 15 kilometres per hour, the same speed as the average bicycle.” According to an Insurance Bureau of Canada study, only 14 per cent of drivers on the road have their headrest in the proper position. And whiplash being the most common soft tissue injury incurred during auto collisions underlines the importance for all passengers to ensure their headrest is adjusted properly.

B.C. Conservative Leader John Cummins told the Optimist last month But he did say the party’s decision could change if there’s enough his party is not planning on running a candidate in Delta South in next pressure from local Conservatives to run a candidate in the riding. The Optimist asked: spring’s provincial election out of respect for MLA Vicki Huntington.

Should the Conservatives run a candidate?

Richard Turner No. I’m happy with the candidate we have.

Joan Rogers I’m very glad they’re not.

You can have your say on this issue by taking part in our web poll at www.


Go to

Gerry Grexton Sure. I think the Conservatives should run a candidate just to make it an even playing field. Just to give people a choice. If there’s no Conservative running, then people don’t have a choice.

Maaret Brandon I’d say yes. I feel quite strongly they should be running a candidate.

Josefita Eliot I think they should. Why not?

South Delta Baby Fair set for Saturday in Ladner

The free event will run from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Ladner Community Centre. The fair is a great

In one place, parents will get information on safety and first aid, ages and stages of child development, parent/ tot programs, introducing literacy and much more.

Cubs clean shoreline

Breastfeeding and baby changing areas will also be available. The Delta Early Childhood Development Committee and the Delta Community Literacy Committee are co-sponsoring this event to raise awareness about the importance of early childhood development and how parents can foster fun, play, learning and literacy as they raise their children. For more information, visit

St. Andrews members pursuing life fully alive St. Andrew’s Church hopes members of the community saw its float during the Tsawwassen Sun Festival parade this summer and received an invitation to join the new church. St. Andrew’s is a young work of God, having existed for just a few years. A few men and women felt they were called by God to plant a new church, which became a reality in a unique setting — an art

gallery. In good time the Lord sent a priest, Rev. Dr. Michael Dobson, who was formerly a professor, but who has also been called by God to the work of planting. St. Andrew’s Church is rapidly developing into a special group that: loves to worship the Almighty Trinitarian God; loves to learn together; loves to serve and loves to grow in

Christ. It believes the love of these things results in a life “fully alive.” The church also offers friendly home groups; ladies and men’s Bible study groups; a prayer and healing ministry; and an active missions and outreach group. Visit for more information or contact Rev. Dobson at mike.w.dobson@gmail. com.

Registration is ongoing Contact us at

Hockey bloodlines run deep for Musil

With plenty of family role models 15-year-old Red Deer Rebels top prospect has bright future ahead of him BY


Adam Musil is following a family tradition except not the same route most would expect. His father is Frank Musil who enjoyed a 14-year career as an NHL defenceman. His older brother — David Musil — currently plays on the blueline for the Western Hockey League’s Vancouver Giants and was selected 31st overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers. Yet it’s another family member Adam sees as his role model. “I try to be like my grandpa,” smiled Musil — a first-year player with the Major Midget Greater Vancouver Canadians. “He was a real good forward and has given me lots of good advice.” Musil’s grandfather is former high-scoring Czech national team hockey star Jaroslav Holik who won a bronze medal at the 1972 Winter Olympics and would later coach the Czech Republic junior national team. He is the father of former NHLer Bobby Holik. So far, Jaroslav must be proud of what his grandson has accomplished. After piling up points in his minor hockey career, including a championship season with the powerhouse Burnaby Winter Club Bantam A1 program, Musil was selected sixth overall in last spring’s WHL Bantam Draft by the Red Deer Rebels. At 6-foot-1 and 184-pounds, the 15-yearold looks physically ready to step into a major junior line-up. He attended Red Deer’s training camp and will spend a year of seasoning with the Major Midget Canadians where he has been given a significant role, centering one of the team’s top two lines. He is off to an impressive start with five points in four games. “It is faster with better players,” said Musil of his brief time in Major Midget. “We should have a pretty good team this year and it will be a lot of fun. “Going to Red Deer (training camp) was a really good experience. Just being on the ice

with guys like (2012 seventh overall NHL draft pick) Mathew Dumba and other great players. I learned a lot from it and have to bring it to this level now.” Musil played the bulk of his minor hockey with South Delta before shifting to Burnaby Winter Club for his final year of Bantam where flourished under coach John Batchelor, producing 98 points in 60 games last season, including 58 goals. BWC’s season concluded by winning the Western Canadian championship. “John was a really good coach who helped me a lot,” continued Musil, who is enrolled the South Delta secondary hockey academy. “When I didn’t play well he let me know and challenged me to be better.” If hockey wasn’t Musil’s sport, he could have turned to tennis. His mom Andrea was a world ranked player and won the Wimbledon junior title in 1986. “I played a few junior events when I was younger but always got too angry with myself,” laughed Musil. “I think hockey is a better fit for me.” His family bloodlines suggests he’s right. Icing.... Otis Goldman’s goal with 7:11 remaining broke a 3-3 deadlock to give the Canadians a 5-3 win over Fraser Valley on Sunday at the Richmond Olympic Oval to sweep the two game series. Greater Vancouver won 4-1 on Saturday, after dropping a pair to the defending champion Vancouver Northwest Giants to open league play. “This was a good confidence booster for us and it showed we can really play,” said Canadians coach Leland Mack. “We got through some (penalties) in the third and the nice part was it wasn’t anyone from our top two lines who scored our last two goals. “That’s how we built this team. With guys who can play, not just grinders (on our third and fourth lines).” Mitch Walter and Austin Adamson also scored Sunday. Shaun Dosanjh, Alex Whitman, Matt Wolthers and Adamson were among the scorers on Saturday.




At 6-foot-1 and 184-pounds, big things are expected this season from Greater Vancouver Canadians forward Adam Musil. He was selected sixth overall in last spring’s WHL Bantam Draft.

Menzies tosses 4 more TDs as Sun Devils roll past Seaquam MARK BOOTH

South Delta Sun Devils head into their bye week on a roll and with a passing game that opponents so far have no answer for. The province’s No. 3 “AA” high school football team made it five straight wins and 3-0 in conference play with a 40-22 victory

over the Seaquam Seahawks on Saturday. Quarterback Kyle Menzies had another big afternoon, throwing for 281 yards and four touchdowns. Hauling in majors were John Longuay (50 yards), Shane Dagg (10 yards), David Mann (26 yards) and Jeremy Carmichael (25 yards). It led to the Devils building up a commanding 34-0 third quarter lead. Menzies

now has 20 touchdowns on the season. To put his pace into better perspective, Ballenas quarterback Liam OBrien led the entire province a year ago with 28 in 11 games, including playoffs. Mann also scored on a 78-yard touchdown run as the Sun Devils rushed for an additional 280 yards. The team is taking four days off before

Tsawwassen Soccer launches popular Grassroots Program

Sun Devils edge Pacers

For the fifth consecutive year, the Tsawwassen Soccer Club kicked off its season with two fun-filled weekends of jamborees to launch its Grassroots Program. The jamborees welcomed the club’s youngest players and allowed them to knock off the rust after a summer away from the game. The Grassroots Program is an initiative put in place by former club president Jim Mackie and is run by TSC’s Micro Head Coach Jon Rogers. It is an opportunity to get the kids together in their age groups a number of times throughout the year to learn new skills, and more importantly, to have fun. “We have found this program to be the most successful of all the programming we run. The kids love being out together and it allows us to run sessions comparable to our Academy while helping volunteer parents get comfortable in their role as new coaches,” explained Rogers. The program is also used to ensure a competitive balance for all teams from U6 to U10. TSC has also gone through some off-season restructuring on the technical side of the club.



TSC Head Coach Mark Rogers has moved into the Technical Director role and has appointed three further full-time head coaches to oversee on-field sessions, program implementation and ongoing assessment of players. “The restructure was necessary in order to continue to provide what I feel is a top-rate training environment,” said Mark Rogers, who also is head coach of the UBC women’s soccer team. “With demands from parents and players increasing, I want to make sure we continue the successes of the past few years in moving players from our club into B.C. Premier and Metro Soccer League environments, as well as help those who continue to play for TSC at the rep or house level. “To do this we have added three full-time head coach positions to oversee the continual evaluation and assessment of players throughout the year.” The three positions will see Jon Rogers as the Grassroots Head Coach, to oversee the U6-10 age groups; Jason Levitt as Boys Head Coach from U11-14 and Kelly Cooke as Girls Head Coach from U11-14. Levitt and Cooke will also oversee all select and house teams in their age groups.


South Delta Sun Devils James Millar attempts to fend off Delta Pacers Michael Warn during last week’s senior boys “AAA” soccer game at Holly Park. Millar scored twice including the game winner as the Devils rallied from a second half deficit to edge their cross-town rival 3-2.

Tsawwassen Soccer Club hosted a pair of fun-filled jamborees to launch its Grassroots Program.
