Pipe band plays with McCartney BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

The Delta Police Pipe Band shared the stage with a music legend over the weekend when it joined Sir Paul McCartney during his concert in Vancouver. The band was brought on stage to provide bagpipes and percussion for Mull of Kintyre, a song from his Wings days, which the 70-year-old rock legend performed as part of a second encore Sunday night in front on 40,000 fans at B.C. Place. “It was spectacular,” said pipe major John Ralston. “It was the quickest five minutes of my life.” Ralston said the band had been in contact with Live Nation, the company that organized Sunday’s show, a couple months ago after the concert was announced. Three weeks ago, Ralston said, he got another call saying the pipe band’s appearance was going ahead. The band rehearsed with McCartney’s band on Saturday and then again with McCartney himself on Sunday afternoon. “He was great,” Ralston said of meeting and performing with him. “He was really down to earth and really nice to work with.”

Five charged after dial-a-dope operation busted BY

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

Several local men are facing drug charges after police broke up a dial-a-dope operation. After a six-month investigation, Delta police, with assistance from the Richmond RCMP drug section, executed a search warrant in Richmond earlier this month. Evidence seized led investigators to arrest and charge four Ladner residents as well as a Richmond

man. Arrested were: Richard Joly, 21, Michael Galley, 37, Richard Jenkins, 27, and Nickolas Drew, 19, all of Ladner, as well as Christian (Chris) Cameron, 37, of Richmond. All are facing charges of trafficking in a controlled substance and Cameron is facing an additional charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Four have been released on bail with numerous court-ordered

conditions, while the fifth remains in custody pending his next court appearance. “This is a good day for Delta,” said Delta police Insp. Lorne Pike. “This investigation resulted in the suppression of a significant drug operation in the South Delta area that had a direct impact in the community. “Delta police drug members removed a significant amount of drugs from being distributed on our streets and have brought

those supplying and trafficking in controlled substances in this case before the courts.” • In an unrelated bust, a Canadian man is facing drug charges after border guards found 33 kilograms of marijuana in his truck at the Point Roberts crossing over the weekend. Canadian Border Services officers stopped the 54-year-old B.C. resident after he was seen driving erratically in the lanes leading up to the inspection booths and

attempting to turn around. The officers came across the marijuana stuffed into 11 garbage bags. Delta police were called in to assist at around 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, said department spokesperson Const. Ciaran Feenan. Officers arrested the man and later released him on a promise to appear in court. He is scheduled to appear in federal court in Surrey in February.

Senior given civic facilities ban

Ladner’s Tom Griffing banished for life after incident at Ladner Leisure Centre sets off chain of events BY

JESSICA KERR

jkerr@delta-optimist.com

A Ladner senior has been battling the Corporation of Delta for more than two years after being banned from the municipality’s recreation facilities for life. “This whole thing is just so unbelievable,” said Tom Griffing, who feels he has been treated unfairly. Griffing’s story began in the fall of 2010 when he was swimming lengths in the pool at the Ladner Leisure Centre, something he had done thousands of times before. He was part of the group that campaigned to have the pool built and as soon as it opened, he purchased an annual pass. Griffing, now in his 70s, has a variety of health problems so swimming is the only way he can exercise. He swims six to seven times a week and was a regular at the leisure centre. One evening he was swimming lengths when a lifeguard approached him. Griffing is also hard of hearing and since he cannot swim with his hearing aids in, he could not initially understand the lifeguard. Another man came over to assist and told Griffing the lifeguard was telling him he had to leave because someone told staff he was drunk. Griffing denies being intoxicated and said he wasn’t given a breath test. He told the lifeguard he was not drunk and continued swimming. A pool supervisor was called in and Griffing was told to leave. “He basically ushered me out and I went,” he said, adding he was told he had to see the pool manager the

Tom Griffing feels he has been treated unfairly by the Corporation of Delta, which has banned him from all civic recreation facilities. next day. At that meeting he was told he was creating a safety hazard for staff and himself by swimming under the influence and was banned from all Delta recreation facilities, except for McKee Seniors’ Recreation Centre where he sits on the board of directors, for three months. After serving his ban he had to meet with the pool manager again. Finding a mutually agreeable time for the meeting proved difficult but one was scheduled for a couple of months in the future, Griffing said. Believing he had served his time, and anxious to start swimming again, Griffing purchased a onemonth pass and resumed his

regular visits. Three weeks later Griffing said staff told him the pass had been cancelled and he needed to meet with the pool manager. Griffing argued he had served his banishment and had been swimming for three weeks with no problems. “I need the exercise and I reached over the counter to take a wristband,” he said. Staff called police and five officers arrived to escort Griffing out of the pool, he said. He was told he was trespassing and the officers escorted him to the changing room and then out of the building. Again, Griffing said, he was accused of being impaired. However, he passed a breath

test administered by one of the officers. The next morning, he was given a one-year banishment from all Delta facilities. Griffing said he tried to appeal the ban and wrote to council asking for a review of the policy, to no avail. “I went home and I served the rest of the year,” he said. The banishment forced him to drive to other communities daily to swim and also prevented Griffing from being able to watch his grandson’s hockey games. Nearing the end of his second banishment, Griffing set up a meeting to discuss his return and was told he would have to sign

a last-chance agreement in order to be allowed to use the recreation facilities again. Griffing said he arrived at municipal hall earlier this year with a witness. At the meeting, he said, he was asked to review and initial Delta’s code of conduct. He initialed the document and was then shown the last-chance agreement, which outlined Griffing’s previous banishments and states that if he does not abide by the code of conduct, or is disrespectful to staff, “he will be issued a permanent and irrevocable banishment from municipal recreation facilities.” Griffing said he was told that if he did not sign the agreement he would be

banned for life. He said he had some issues with it, but signed the document with a notation that he was doing so under duress. Griffing said the meeting was quickly terminated and he was told, essentially, he had not signed the agreement and was banned for life. He said he went to the offices of the mayor and CAO but was told they would not discuss the matter because he had not “signed” the agreement. Griffing wrote a letter to mayor and council, and investigated other avenues of appeal, but hasn’t met with any success. “Under normal circumstances I would not fight city hall but I’ve had enough,” he said, adding he feels he has been bullied by Delta. CAO George Harvie said Delta acted on a direct complaint from staff about Griffing’s behaviour at the pool. He said it was perceived as a threat to staff safety. Harvie said the municipality does not take banning patrons lightly. “We make sure it’s done for the right reasons,” he said, adding it’s done for the safety of employees. “We will not tolerate inappropriate behaviour,” he said, adding Delta’s code of conduct is prominently displayed at the entrance of all recreation facilities. Delta maintains anyone banished can appeal the decision, but Griffing said he tried to appeal with no success. He said he is dubious of the process because another municipal employee carries out the appeal instead of a third party.

TFN Judicial Council hears election notices incorrect BY

SANDOR GYARMATI

sgyarmati@delta-optimist.com

The Tsawwassen First Nation’s Judicial Council heard arguments on the weekend why September’s election result should be tossed. Open only for TFN members to watch, Saturday’s proceeding was to hear appeals launched by two individuals that claimed there was a voting irregularity in the Sept. 5 election. “The Judicial Council will now study the evidence and information provided at the hearing, and is slated to render a decision within the

next weeks. It will make its decision known to the parties to the appeal, the TFN Executive Council and the TFN members and then to the public,” stated a TFN news release. Bryce Williams, a 23year-old carver, defeated longtime incumbent Kim Baird to become the TFN’s new chief. The vote was 78 to 69 in favour of Williams, who was first elected to the TFN’s government in 2009. Baird, who was acclaimed in the previous election, had been chief since 1999. Her defeat was seen as a surprise to many.

Only 140 of the 260 eligible voters (57 per cent) cast ballots in the election. Baird didn’t personally launch an appeal but her brother, Mike Baird, was one of the two appellants. The other was Christina Shellar. According to a press release, they filed appeals in regard to the timing of election notices. “There was a wrong day on one of the election notices and we felt that this impacted the outcome of the election which compelled us to appeal the results to the Tsawwassen First Nation Judicial

Council,” said Mike Baird. “Every Tsawwassen member is entitled to a clear and fair voting process, and this mistake did not allow for every member to vote — including myself,” said Shellar. Both appellants participated in the hearing, but the press release noted they wouldn’t comment further until a decision is handed down. The press release was issued by Alex Rose, a friend of Kim Baird and a former public relations advisor for the TFN, who’s also author of a book on aboriginal business lead-

is not to be disqualified by reason of mistake or noncompliance if, in the opinion of Judicial Council, the non-compliance or mistake did not reasonably affect the final result of the election.

Starting this weekend, Operation Red Nose will be available to take holiday party goers and their vehicles home from a night out. “Our team of volunteer drivers and dispatchers is ready to do their part in keeping our roads safe this holiday season,” said Operation Red Nose DeltaRichmond chair Carlene Lewall. “The first night is always the most exciting as we eagerly await the first calls to come, and then it all kicks into high gear.” Last year thanks to the help of 360 volunteers, Operation Red Nose DeltaRichmond gave close to 650 rides to about 2,000 individuals in the course of

nine nights. “One statistic that is not included is the number of lives that were probably saved by keeping our roads safe during those busy nights,” added Lewall. Since 2002, Delta Gymnastics Society has been the local host of the award-winning national program that strives to provide road safety while at the same time supports amateur youth sport in the community. The difference between this service and a regular taxi service is that both the driver and their vehicle are taken to their homes. “Many of our Delta Gymnastics coaches, staff, parents and athletes get

directly involved in the campaign,” said Lewall. “The funds raised through sponsorship, donations and tips are all directed to the improvement of our facility and equipment to benefit all of our participants.” Volunteers are still needed, especially on New Year’s Eve. “That night all our calls start after midnight so our volunteers still have an opportunity to enjoy a great dinner hosted at our facility and ring in the New Year. Shortly after the real fun begins,” said Lewall. Anyone over the age of 19 can volunteer. There are many positions that need to be filled, including dispatch

office, greeters, drivers and navigators. All volunteers are required to complete a criminal record check prior to participating in the program at no cost to the volunteer. This year Operation Red Nose, in partnership with ICBC, Richmond RCMP, Delta police and many local sponsors, will service the communities of Delta and Richmond on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 31 between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. To get involved call 604943-0460 or email orn@ operationrednosedelta.com.

Snow geese could become problem: Steves Richmond councillor, who has suggested a cull, says Delta parks and school grounds could soon be overrun SANDOR GYARMATI

Further development at Roberts Bank will likely result in Delta’s parks and school grounds being overrun with snow geese, according to a Richmond councillor witnessing the problem in his city. Longtime council member and farmer Harold Steves recently made news by suggesting a mass cull might be necessary to eliminate a snow goose problem in Richmond, a situation he predicted would materialize long ago when feeding grounds were lost and hunting was restricted. He subsequently told the Optimist a cull should be considered, but as a last resort. Noting about 6,000 snow geese have descended on Richmond this year, Steves said Delta could be in the same predicament if Port Metro Vancouver builds another container terminal as well as warehouses on farmland. “They know the best places to go are in parks because they prefer nicely clipped grasses. They don’t eat the grasses, they eat the roots. All winter long they can destroy Delta parks and leave so much goose dung around the schools.” Between October and April, snow geese can be seen in the tens of thousands on the Fraser River delta and the Skagit River delta in Washington state. Funding is provided to one farm in Richmond to plant winter cover crops in an attempt to lure the birds away, while some funding is also provided to the Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust for the winter cover crop program in Delta. “The problem is the birds like our parks so much, we can’t even get them going as south as Steveston Highway,” Steves noted. In the last couple of years, the city hired people with dogs in a program aimed at scaring the birds away, but Steves said the birds simply flew in circles before landing at another park. A new volunteer program has been launched using dogs trained for such a purpose. “If they’re successful, then you’ll have another 6,000 birds in Delta and that could be a problem for Delta, especially if you lose all that farmland,” Steves said. Noting snow geese are protected under the federal

Migratory Bird Act, Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust biologist David Bradbeer said it’s doubtful the federal government would authorize a mass kill.

“If there would ever be a decision to cull birds, it would have to happen in Russia on their breeding grounds, when they molt their flight feathers, but the

of the DFWT, the City of Richmond, Canadian Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited and others, has a draft management plan that calls for a population

Russians would never go for it because it’s their last population of snow geese,” Bradbeer said. A snow goose habitat working group, comprised

of no higher than 50,000 to 70,000 birds. That number can be achieved through hunting, Bradbeer explained, which is allowed in Delta.

The group also wants to bring a little fun to a woman who is going through a rough time. “As moms, we’d like to give the gift of pampering,” said organizer Pindi Mann, adding the group is also looking for donations of items like nail polish, make up, perfume and pyjamas — anything new and unopened that will give the gift of pampering to women who might not be able to afford it. “Anything that will give a lady a boost.” After contributing to Christmas baskets for women living in

Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside for several years, Mann decided to bring the cause a little closer to home a couple years ago. The small group of dedicated volunteers uses donations to put together gift bags distributed at shelters, transition homes and recovery centres in the region. “It was nice to give back to a place closer to home,” said Patrice Dagenais.

Last year, Dagenais and a couple other women delivered some of the bags to one of the shelters. “It was very humbling,” said Janet Boates.

November 21, 2012 The Delta Optimist A7

Officer wants to make difference in the community he calls home

Const. Ciaran Feenan is best known these days as being the face of the Delta Police Department. It was 16 years ago this week that a young Feenan started his policing career with the Vancouver Police Department. Over his 14-year career with VPD, Feenan spent five years in general patrol in the southeast district of the city before moving onto youth services, which saw him working to help youth at risk, drug addicted and “street entrenched” youths. He also worked with the youth gang crime unit and was a part of the violence suppression team that was working to curb gang violence in the city’s downName: Ciaran Feenan town core. Before making the move to Delta police Employer: Delta Police in 2010, Feenan spent four Position: Constable/media years as one of Vancouver’s relations officer school liaison officers. Q: What drew you to a career in policing? I think what really drew me to the career was the fact that I’ve played team sports my whole life. This is a very team-oriented job. There’s a reliance on everyone to get the job done. Not one person is bigger than the whole and that really attracted me. I think it was the ability to give back to the community... just to know you could make a difference in the community, you could make people feel safe in places where they lived, and help people. Q: Is there one moment, case or call from your career that really stands out? It was very early on in my career... It wasn’t an overly busy night and we were just doing our general patrol duties and I remember I had my windows down and I could smell smoke, and it just seemed odd. My partner and I kind of followed the smell eventually to a point where we turned

the corner and there was a full structure fire in a house. We immediately got out of our car and we ran into the house... There were people in the bottom suite that we were able to get out. We went upstairs and we kicked doors... to make sure everyone was out of the house but we couldn’t get into the upper level. It was totally engulfed. So we cleared the house and got downstairs and got out the door and as we got out the door I just remember turning around and looking, and as I turned back to look the roof started to fall in. Q: You’ve spent time in many different areas of policing. What’s next? I’m a part-time guest instructor at the Justice Institute teaching recruit training. At some point I’d like to go to the Justice Institute full time as an instructor. Q: If you weren’t a police officer, what would you be doing right now? I would be a teacher. When I left UBC, I was very, very fortunate that I became a VPD officer within a few short months so I really didn’t have to plan post, post-secondary, so to speak... It’s probably why I have this inkling to go to the JI, it’s because I’ve always wanted to teach. So, if I weren’t doing this there is little to no doubt that I would be a teacher. Q: What drew you to the Delta Police Department? I live in the community. My wife and I moved out to Delta about seven years ago... I just absolutely love the community, I’ve coached in the community, I volunteered as the vice-president for North Delta football... And what I thought was, I want to make a difference in my community. I want to take ownership. I live here, I’m a police officer, I want to make the community safe.

TED MURPHY

MURPHY’S LAW The experts have long been predicting a correction is coming for Greater Vancouver’s real estate market, but this is ridiculous. The recent decision by the provincial Property Assessment Appeal Board to drop the value of the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal in West Vancouver to just 20 bucks is absolutely mind-boggling. It’s also worrisome given the same thinking could be used early next year should B.C. Ferries appeal the assessment of the Tsawwassen ferry terminal. And you better believe the ferry corporation is going to launch an appeal, given it could wipe out a tax bill of almost $700,000 if it’s successful. I can accept the notion that it’s difficult to establish a value for some properties and structures because they’re unique, one-off types of operations. There aren’t a lot of comparables, so it’s hard to say whether a ferry terminal is worth $20 million or $50 million or even $100 million. What I do know is that it’s worth a heck of a lot more than $20. It’s also readily apparent that a ferry terminal puts far more strain on civic services than a $20 piece of property, should you be able to find such a thing. The bizarre ruling is based on the grounds that the property has no market value because it has no purpose other than as a ferry terminal and there is no potential for profit. Say what? Since when did the ferry corporation’s bottom line factor into what it should pay for municipal services like police and fire protection? And regardless of any lease restrictions, you can’t get past the fact it’s still one prime piece of waterfront real estate, a property that would hit the open market with a lot more than just one zero in the asking price. Surely the courts aren’t going to let this ruling stand and allow B.C. Ferries to freeload off taxpayers in all communities that house terminals. It’s one thing to put up with ferry traffic but it’s quite another for all other property owners to dig into their own pockets to pay for the privilege. The $20 valuation for the Horseshoe Bay terminal seems so absurd it’s hard to believe it will withstand any kind of reasonable review. That’s certainly the hope of the District of West Vancouver, which is challenging the ruling because it stands to lose $250,000 annually if the decision stands. Delta has got even more at stake, so one can only hope the next entity to adjudicate this curious situation adopts a more, shall we say, realistic point of view.

Metro could extract Delta from no-win Southlands situation BRAD SHERWIN

COMMUNITY COMMENT Watching the back and forth debate on the Southlands issue has been interesting. On one side, we have a number of people who don’t want to see development on the property. On the other side is a developer who has held this agricultural property for decades in the hopes of one day planting houses. And in the middle are a mayor and council on the hot seat — any decision they deliver will be seen as a victory for one side, and a huge defeat for the other. First of all, developers will be watching this carefully, wondering if they should invest in Delta. A favourable decision in their eyes will set a new standard for working with the municipality on largescale projects. On the other side is a number of people, how large is debateable. By last count, a good guess would be

about two-thirds of the Tsawwassen population, based on the two public surveys previously conducted. Oh, yes, while I did say people, I should have written voters. So how can council win? No matter which way it ends up on this decision, one group will be choked. Upset the developers, and they will take their money somewhere else. Upset the populous and re-election becomes more difficult. It seems council members are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Or are they? According to Delta’s process chart for the application, the next stage is seeking direction of council to draft a bylaw to alter the Official Community Plan. If council approves this on Dec. 17, it will consider the bylaw in January. Should it pass first and second readings then, the issue is referred to Metro Vancouver for review. If it passes Metro Vancouver’s review, it’s back on Delta’s plate for a couple more rounds and a final decision. If I were a betting man (and I am — I have the recycled 6/49 tickets to prove it!) here’s what I think will happen that might just save face for council with both groups:

The Optimist encourages readers to write letters to the editor. Letters are accepted on any topic, although preference is given to those on local matters. The Optimist reserves the right to edit letters and the decision to publish is at the discretion of the editor or publisher. All letters must be signed, dated and include the writer’s phone number

1. On Dec. 17, council will approve the drafting of a bylaw. Who’s going to be watching? It’s eight days before Christmas, so no one will spend much time arguing about it. So it will be largely forgotten until a couple of weeks into the new year. 2. In January, it will pass first and second readings. A little heat from the masses, but, hey, once it’s done council isn’t in control any more! 3. The issue is referred to Metro Vancouver, out of Delta’s hands. If I were council, I’d have my fingers crossed it doesn’t get past this point. If it gets stopped at Metro Vancouver, council can say it supported the developer, but since the application doesn’t proceed, the public will be appeased as well. This is a win-win situation for council. But if Metro allows the OCP change, all bets are off. The pressure will really be on council then. If this timing was planned all along, I have to tip my hat to whoever put this schedule together. But if it wasn’t planned that way, are civic politicians sure are lucky. I wonder if they can help me pick my numbers.

November 21, 2012 The Delta Optimist A9 Letters to the Editor

Everyone’s opinion counts regardless of your friends

Editor: Re: New citizen has ties to Southlands opposition group, letter to the editor, Nov. 21 I am stunned by the recent letter by Douglas Bolen that suggests I have no entitlement to my own opinion given that my spouse is a leader of the Southlands the Facts. Bolen, whom I do not know a lot about as I do not have the time nor interest to search letter writers’ personal profiles online, accuses me of bias and attempts to disregard what he calls my “opinion.”

Have not friends of Century Group president Sean Hodgins written letters to the editor to express their “opinion?” Who are you friends with, Bolen? Again, I wouldn’t know because I don’t troll the Internet. I’m a busy person. Who you are friends with does not discount one’s opinion. I was not aware that my letter was perceived as some kind of legal testimony. For the record, Bolen is also incorrect about the use of my name. My name is indeed Ellexis Boyle and I

no longer go by the additional last name Maslovat given the recent and painful death of a member of my family. I changed my name back to my original name in homage to them. Not that this is anyone’s business but the fact is, Bolen’s response to my earlier letter is egregious, ignorant and creepy. I am further stunned the Optimist would publish it. However, on the bright side, it must show my letter was a good one. Why else would someone feel the need to behave so? Ellexis Boyle

Finding it difficult to get with paperless program BARBARA GUNN

LIVING MATTERS Call me old school. I still have a thing about paper. The rest of the world, it seems to me, long ago abandoned it. Even my husband — who is the same age as I, but firmly positioned in new school — has completely embraced these paperless times. When he wants to note an appointment in his calendar, he does not do what I do, which is to pull out a pen and start scribbling on the 12-page thing that’s hanging in my kitchen. Oh, no. He opens up his BlackBerry and makes the notation there. Same with his address book. The husband’s does not look like mine. Mine is a lined, coil-bound item that lives in my purse. It’s full of — you got it — paper. The husband’s address book lives inside his iPad, which also happens to house his photo albums, his

calculator, his newspapers recharged, powered up and and his street maps. logged on to. Then there is my grocery But as I say, I’m old list. My grocery list, like school.

Ladner’s Debbie Cheong received Osteoporosis Canada’s Community Partner Award earlier this month. “It was a big surprise,” said Cheong, the provincial co-ordinator for the Osteofit program at B.C. Women’s Hospital and Health Centre. It was gratifying to have her work acknowledged, she added. Cheong received the award from Osteoporosis Canada president and CEO Dr. Famida Jiwa at a public education forum in Victoria. Cheong, who has been involved with Osteofit since 2000, trains instructors provincially and works on development of the program. She also teaches Osteofit in Delta at the Ladner Leisure Centre and South Delta Recreation Centre as well as a Get Up and Go class at the McKee Seniors’ Recreation Centre. Gerry Copeland, who has been taking Cheong’s classes for three years, said she has more energy, more flexibility and is more aware now of the importance of bending, lifting and turning properly. “She knows her craft so well. She’s very enthusias-

It’s exciting to see that it’s expanded to the reach that it has. The program is quite diversified from what it started out as. That’s really exciting because it shows the adaptability of it.” Osteofit is an exercise, education and falls prevention program for people with osteoporosis, low bone density or who are at risk

of fractures and falls, the B.C. Women’s Hospital and Health Centre website explains. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that leads to increased bone fragility. Cheong said her goal is to help keep seniors independent and be able to remain in their own homes. “We can give them a lot of tools to do that.” For more about the program visit www.osteofit. org.

Volunteers light up streets for holidays

The streets of Tsawwassen are alight with holiday cheer thanks to a group of volunteers that spent several weekends festooning trees with Christmas lights. Continuing in the annual tradition of lighting up the streets with thousands of twinkling Christmas lights, several local business owners, with the help of the

Need Ornaments?

Boundary Bay Bluebacks swim club and other volunteers, worked to ensure the holiday feel was alive and well in Tsawwassen. Randy Scott from Randy’s Tirecraft spent four days hanging lights and also made a $300 donation to the Bluebacks. In addition, local business owners Roland Smith from Illuminate

Restorante, David Anderson from Budget Blinds and Elisabeth Wagner from Wagner’s European Fabricare all contributed their time to place the festive lights throughout Tsawwassen. The annual tradition of lighting up the commercial core is sponsored by the Business Improvement Association of Tsawwassen.

Joey Kerr Eva N Fashions

I asked Eva if she could make me a slipcover for my sofa. Although she had never made one she willingly agreed. She came to my house and measured twice. She did an amazing job and it looks great! She was very helpful throughout the process. When she underestimated the project, she even took money off the total as she felt so bad. I would highly recommend her service, excellent! Thank you, Eva.

Peter A Jensen Delta Hospice Charity Shoppe

Thrift stores are in! And aren’t we the lucky ones to have the Rolls Royce of thrift stores right here in Tsawwassen, the Delta Hospice Charity Shoppe? People come from all over to browse through it. What makes it special? Starting off, it has been in Tsawwassen forever, slowly growing to now occupying a building that was formerly a financial institution. It’s bright and airy and it is run by a large group of hard working, friendly volunteers. What did I buy here last? Fashionable Italian dress shoes and a smart white shirt — my nephew was getting married.

Tracey Innes The Wild Bird Center

The Wild Bird Center in Tsawwassen has the best service ever! A beautiful birdbath caught my eye. I was concerned that my husband wouldn’t like it and I would have issues returning it. I was told I could make the return anytime for a full refund! What great service! My concern when buying at specialty shops is if I decide my purchase is not suitable, I won’t be able to return it. No concern at the Wild Bird Center!

Aurela Edgson Figaro Hair Design

I want to let you know how much I appreciate the incredible service my family receives at Figaro Hair Design. My husband was the first one to go and see Vick and Adriano and now my three sons go as well. Even if we are in the mall and not needing a haircut for anybody, Vick still greets us with a warm smile as we walk by and a cheery “Hey, how are you?” We love the fact that even if both chairs are full and there are many people waiting, Vick will let you know how long the wait is and just to come back then. My boys love the way Vick and Adriano chat to them about school and sports while cutting their hair exactly how each one wants it.

Lori Argent The Source

I want to rave about a relatively new business in Tsawwassen, The Source. Recently, I was in the market for a new PC. I shopped around a lot and did my homework. In the end, I decided to make my purchase at The Source, not only because of their competitive pricing, but because of the personalized service they offer. For a small fee, Robin transferred all my data over to the new computer (apparently, right before it crashed!) and Kashif came to our home with our new purchase, installed the software and got us all set up and running! A service I really appreciated, since I am no techy! They are both very friendly and knowledgeable and certainly go above and beyond! Thanks guys!

Volunteers from the Canadian Cancer Society will be wrapping gifts at the Town Centre Mall daily in the week leading up to Christmas. The annual program is sponsored by the Business Improvement Association of Tsawwassen.

Gift-wrapping service returns to say thanks to local shoppers

Canadian Cancer Society volunteers will once again be making sure that Christmas gifts bought in Tsawwassen will be beautifully wrapped. The annual gift-wrapping program was introduced to Tsawwassen shoppers by the Business Improvement Association a number of years ago and for the second straight year, the Canadian Cancer Society has taken the reins. Its volunteers will be wrapping gifts by donation for the shoppers of Tsawwassen in the week leading up to Christmas. The program will run Dec. 19 to the 24 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, except on Dec. 24 when it will be offered from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The jolly wrappers will be found at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall, wrapping presents from their holiday themed storefront. All presents purchased from any Tsawwassen merchant are welcome to be beautifully wrapped, by donation, which goes directly to the Canadian Cancer Society. Any item, purchased from any store in Tsawwassen, can be brought to the Town Centre Mall where it will be transformed into a beautifully wrapped present, bedecked with ribbons and bows. This program is sponsored by the Tsawwassen Business Improvement Association to continue to thank people for shopping locally.

Christmas Pyjama Drive is aiming for 500 pairs BY

In the Community

A group of local youngsters is collecting donations to help bring some snuggly Christmas cheer to kids in need this year. Molly Millward, 9, saw what her cousin started in Surrey two years ago with the Christmas Pyjama Drive and decided she wanted to use the same idea to help kids in Delta. Millward started the PJ Crew at Port Guichon Elementary, where she’s in Grade 4. The group is aiming to collect 500 pairs of new children’s pyjamas to donate to Deltassist for its Christmas hamper program. Mom Lesley Millward said her daughter recognized that many local kids aren’t as lucky as some and wanted to help. She said her daughter said she wanted to collect the pyjamas “because children in our community are in need of pyjamas. And in our house it is a tradition that we always get pyjamas

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Students at Port Guichon Elemetary have already collected 112 pairs of pyjamas for the Christmas Pyjama Drive. Donations can be dropped off at the school or at other locations around the community until Dec. 8. Back row: Addyson, Spencer, Kaida and Garett Front row: Madison, Molly and Tiah. on Christmas Eve, even when my mom was a kid she got PJs on Christmas Eve. I would be sad if we weren’t able to do this, so I want to do it for other kids.” Donations are being accepted until Dec. 8. New children’s pyjamas can be dropped off at Port Guichon Elementary, Urban Rack, Buggy Babies Fitness, Buttercups

Children’s Boutique in Ladner and Brown’s Socialhouse in Tsawwassen. Brown’s is also holding a special promotion. Anyone who brings a donation to the restaurant on Dec. 9 will receive 50 per cent off their food bill. For more information, visit the www.facebook. com/thechristmaspyjamadrive.

DSS Interact Club is keeping busy Delta Secondary’s new Interact Club is beginning to make its mark. Late last month, approximately 40 students, five teachers and three parents assisted with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup at the Tsawwassen ferry causeway. Braving the pouring rain, club members picked up approximately 15 bags of garbage totalling 20 kilograms. Interact is a service club for youth in grades 8 to 12 at Delta Secondary in Ladner. It welcomes new members and meets the first and third Monday of each month in the Collaboration Room at DSS at lunchtime.

The

Interact Club members are currently selling Nokero Solar Lights — at $20 each — as a fundraiser to buy Shelter Boxes for communities struck by a natural disaster. The club is close to raising its first $1,000 to provide emergency equipment and shelter for those in need. Upcoming initiatives include the Rotary Auction, gift wrapping at the Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall, a book drive for northern communities and a daffodil drive in April. Interested students and parents can contact Ms. Colls (counsellor) at Delta Secondary at 604-946-4194 local 265.

Local indie group is set to rock it in main event of Band Fight BY

DAVE WILLIS

dwillis@delta-optimist.com

Virginia Leaves will be up against three other hopefuls in the final round of AMP Records’ Band Fight competition tonight in Vancouver. “I think we’re all feeling pretty good about it. We’re just focusing on ourselves and our songs and trying to get the songs tight,” said Tsawwassen’s Mike West, one of the members of Virginia Leaves, in an interview last week. The winning band gets a professionally recorded song and full radio promotion campaign with AMP Records, guaranteed radio play on 99.3 The Fox and a feature article in the Georgia Straight. West said the prize would be a big help to his group and that hearing one of his band’s songs on the radio would be surreal. “We all do this mostly because we absolutely love music, love writing and playing music; but to know

that other people are enjoying it as well I think is a big part of it.” The indie rock band is comprised of West, Glenn Kelly, Mike “Strides” Brown and Brian Michals. The group doesn’t mind changing things up on stage during shows. “Glen will go over and start playing bass and

Strides will start playing guitar. I’ll sing a song. Glen will sing a song. I think that’s part of the dynamic of the band that really works in a live performance.” Virginia Leaves, which released a five-song EP a couple years ago, has spent the last 18 months focusing on new songs for an album. West said the band

Happy Holidays.

attack in check for much of the game. The only time the Sun Devils looked vulnerable was on a surprise Barsby pass play that set up the game’s opening touchdown in the second quarter. The Bulldogs took advantage of some special team breakdowns to get their other major on a blocked punt. However, they failed to capitalize on a third quarter fumble that gave them the ball on South Delta’s 22-yard-line with the game’s outcome very much in doubt as Matt Wollin came up with a huge tackle on a fourth and two gamble. The defensive unit completed their splendid performance by forcing a turnover in the dying seconds when the Bulldogs

blocked another Sun Devils punt inside the 10-yard-line. “You have to play with a great deal of discipline against this team and we did that today,” said Sun Devils head coach Ray Moon, who received a terrific effort from Grade 11 inside linebacker Austin Pearson. “They will look for the edge and, if you take that away, then they are looking for the cutback lane. We did a good job of taking both away. “I think our kids were a little too excited. We told them to relax at halftime and remember how they were doing everything in the summer. We had some major problems on special teams today

but the thing was it hurt us but didn’t kill us.” It was one play after Wollin’s fourth down stop when the Sun Devils swung the momentum for good on an electrifying 87-yard touchdown run by Shane Dagg. Mann’s interception return ignited the South Delta post-game celebration even before the final whistle made it official. “David can make those plays,” added Moon. “He is a great athlete and a great guy. “We can only do so much as coaches. What it always comes down to is how much heart you play with and the kids played with plenty of it today.”

With the seconds ticking down and his team in need of some kind of momentum, David Mann took destiny into his hands. The senior slotback hauled in a routine 10-yard pass from quarterback Kyle Menzies and turned into the South Delta Sun Devils most spectacular and important play of the season. Mann broke three tackles and 76-yards later was in the end zone with just 35 seconds left in the opening half. What looked like a comfortable lead going into the locker room for the John Barsby Bulldogs was suddenly down to a single point. The Sun Devils took that momentum into the second half and built on it to pull away for a 27-12 victory and earn their fourth trip to the provincial “AA” championship game in school history. Mann capped his memorable afternoon at UBC”s Thunderbird Stadium with a 65-yard interception for a major with 3:42 remaining in the game. He nearly had another on a third quarter punt return. “I got the ball and saw that open space. I knew I needed to make a play for my team to give us a spark or something,” said the 6-foot-4, 200-pound senior who has CIS schools lining up for him. “We played with so much heart today and I’m so proud of everyone.”

Sun Devils coach sees more scoring in provincial final

For perhaps the first time this season, the South Delta Sun Devils secondary will need to be on high alert come Saturday afternoon at B.C. Place Stadium. After facing a pair of run-oriented teams in playoff wins over Rick Hansen and John Barsby Bulldogs, the defending provincial “AA” champion Mission Roadrunners will provide a much different challenge. The Sun Devils will have to respect the running ability of second-year starting quarterback Kevin Weins who rushed for three touchdowns, including a 34-yard scamper, in a 28-27 semi-final win over the Ballenas Whalers. Weins can also throw the ball, evident by the nearly 500 yards of passing and six majors he put up in conference play. “We are similar teams in a lot of ways,” said Sun Devils head coach Ray Moon. “He is a good athletic quarterback, they have a couple of receivers that can hurt you and a good running back as well. “I think you are going to see more of a wide open affair compared to the last couple of weeks. We feel we are pretty decent in the secondary and with our linebacking core too. It’s going to be a good challenge.” Kickoff is slated for 3 p.m.

South Delta Sun Devils Sheima Rezai and Nicole McNamara begin play at the provincial AAAA senior girls volleyball championships on Thursday in Port Coquitlam.

Top ranked Sun Devils seek first B.C. crown

It has the potential of being the biggest night of athletic achievements in the history of South Delta secondary school. While the Sun Devils will be attempting to capture the provincial football championship at B.C. Place Stadium Saturday afternoon, the senior girls volleyball team will be in Port Coquitlam trying to win the school’s first-ever provincial senior volleyball championship. South Delta heads into the 16 team “AAAA” event on a tremendous roll, having won three tournaments in the past five weeks, including its first-ever Fraser Valley title with a four set win over No. 3 ranked Heritage Woods in the championship match. The Sun Devils took over the number one ranking earlier in the month with a first place finish at the Red Surge Classic at Riverside secondary, the same school hosting the provincials. Round-robin play gets underway Thursday morning with the Devils in a group that includes GP Vanier (Courtenay), Terry Fox and North Peace (Fort St. John). The championship round starts Friday and the gold medal match is slated for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. At the net... The Sun Devils finished 23rd as one of the host teams of last weekend’s provincial junior girls championships. Surrey’s Pacific Academy took top honours.

Obituaries

James Wong

December 4, 1931 - November 25, 2012 It is with profound sadness that we share the sudden passing of James. He is survived by Marge, his beloved wife of 55 years, his seven devoted children and their respective spouses, his 13 loving grandchildren, and many extended family members. He was much loved, and will be dearly missed. A memorial service for James will be held on Sunday, December 9, 2012, at 2:30pm, at Ladner Gospel Assembly, 4979 44A Avenue, Delta, B.C. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Delta Hospital Foundation in Ladner.

Victor Barber will be remembered as a caring and intelligent gentleman with a wry sense of humour. Born February 3rd, 1926 in Hannington, England, and died November 23rd, 2012 in Ladner, BC as a result of a stroke. From the age of 8 to 15 he grew up in Barnardo’s School for Boys where he apprenticed as a Printer at the age of 15. He then went on to spend three years in the British Army where he met and married Jocelyn in 1948. Immediately after the wedding they ventured to Canada to make a new life, first in Ontario then North Vancouver where their three children were born. In 1963 they moved to a Hobby Farm in Maple Ridge and then on to Ladner for the last 24 years. Family was of the upmost significance to Victor. Predeceased by Jocelyn and oldest son David, his remaining family includes children Allison and Gordon (Margo); grandchildren Graham, Paul, Meghan (Devon), Erica, Sean, Ben, Evan and Andrea; and greatgrandchildren Jordan and Kaci, as well as his extended family around the world. He spent much of his lengthy newspaper career at the Vancouver Sun and Province where he progressed from the position of linotype operator to the senior role of Production Manager. In this role his skills of negotiation, diplomacy and innovation were highly valued. Victor loved to travel and experience other cultures, but most of all he loved sharing this with his wife Jocelyn. He was a lifetime gardener spending many happy hours in his greenhouse, vegetable patch, and chrysanthemum bed. For many years he was a member and then President of the Evergreen Garden Club, where he shared his knack for propagating challenging seeds and cuttings. His other interests included sports, history, wine making, and the occasional glass of scotch. Friends, neighbours, and community were important to Victor. In his last few years he enjoyed being an active member of McKee House, often as the oldest and as the only male in the exercise classes. He also cherished his time sharing wisdom, experience and values with his grandchildren. His influence will continue to be felt for the rest of their lives. There will be a gathering Sunday, December 2nd from 2-4pm at 4486 Dawn Dr., Ladner. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to a charity of your choice.

HELLEVANG - Ruth Elinor Jan. 10, 1928 - Nov. 20, 2012 With sadness we announce the passing of Ruth Elinor Hellevang. She was a daughter to Ruby and George Campbell of Ladner, BC and she lived there for twenty-five years before moving to Pemberton in 1953 with her husband, Elmer Hellevang and their seven month old son, Chris. Two more children, Dave and Connie were born as Ruth and Elmer cleared the farm and became potato farmers.

Ruth will be remembered lovingly by her many friends and by her family. She is predeceased by her parents and sisters, Margaret and Jean and by her brother Robert. Many thanks to the caring staff at Inglewood Care Center in West Vancouver, where Ruth spent the last two years of her life.
