Bridge traffic approaching forecast numbers Golden Ears crossings

January-September 2011 Daily average crossings January: 22,400 (19,600) February: 24,100 (20,500) March: 25,500 (22,300) April: 26,200 (22,900) May: 26,700 (23,600) June: 28,600 (25,200) July: 28,000 (25,700) August: 29,500 (26,200) September: 29,200 (25,800) Note: 2010 number in brackets

Maple Ridge mayor might support tolling all bridges in the region. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Crossings on the Golden Ears Bridge climbed steadily throughout 2011. With an increase of 13.4 per cent in the first nine months, it’s getting close to the number forecast when the bridge was initially planned. The total number of trips from January to September 2011 was about 7.3 million – 630,000 lower than budgeted for the year. Daily averages went up about 3,500 compared to the first nine months of 2010, for example, in September 2010, the daily average was 25,800 whereas in September

2011, this figure was 29,500. Traffic volume is approaching the “low end” of what was projected in 2004 when the bridge was being planned, according to TransLink spokesperson Ken Hardie. Currently the Golden Ears Bridge is the only tolled bridge in the Lower Mainland, but soon tolls will be in place on the rebuilt Port Mann Bridge. Adding tolls to all bridges in the region might be one way of funding transit, said Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin. Daykin said he’d be willing to look at a toll on every bridge across the Lower Mainland to pay for transit, pointing out that tolls are not a new concept and many regions around North America and Europe have tolls on roads and bridges. “Maybe that’s one option... something worth considering,” he said.

Finding different ways to pay for transit is something Daykin would like to see happen during the next six to 12 months at TransLink’s mayors’ council. A vehicle levy would be another option that Daykin would ponder, but he said areas that have higher density and more transit should have higher levies. For many people living in the Fraser Valley, where there is less transit service, one or two cars is usually a necessity. TransLink has “really limited options” when it comes to funding transportation, Daykin said, and he’d like to see legislative changes to give the transit authority the ability to raise more funds. But, he added, the average bus rider doesn’t care how transit is funded, “they just want a bus,” Daykin said.

Roelof Rietel and Brent Mehl, owners of a Pitt Meadows property along the South Alouette River where a contentious boat shed was built, were served legal papers from the City of Pitt Meadows. The City ordered them to remove the boat shed by Dec. 15 or face further legal action. Rietel is prepared for his day in court, claiming the City has no authority in this case.

Pitt man ordered to demo new boat shed Roelof Rietel is refusing to tear down his building, saying the City has no jurisdiction over the waterway shelter. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

A man, who made waves in the past with a barge on South Alouette River, has been served with legal papers to tear down a new river-side structure built without a permit. The irony is, he now would have to get a demolition permit in order to comply. At next Tuesday’s meeting, Pitt Meadows council intends to approve legal action against two men for constructing a boat shed along the river’s edge. Roelof Rietel erected the structure on the river adjacent to a property, which he owns with Brent Mehl. “Do they just want me to roll over and play dead,” said Rietel, who is disputing claims he’s violated any municipal bylaws. “In one way, I would like to see them bring it to court because I just don’t think they have the jurisdiction over the water,” he said. “As far as a boat house is concerned, that is entirely federal, and is overseen by provincial authority,” Rietel explained. He has a “water lease” agreement with the province, which he said he’s “willing to jump through hoops” to keep in place.

Rietel has faced other challenges since buying his property in 2002, including a couple of years of fighting the City about his project to build a home on a barge moored at the same location. The current dispute started when City staff received information on Oct. 31 that Rietel was building a shed. The City advised him that he’s not permitted to build on the river. Rietel took the position that municipal bylaws cannot regulate activities on navigable waters. “Somebody has a vendetta against me,” Rietel speculated. On Nov. 2, a stop-work order was posted on the property. It stated: “Shelter in riverway is unauthorized, not permitted, and must be removed immediately.” On Nov. 7, City staff noted the order had been taken down and construction continued. One week later, on Nov. 14 construction had not stopped. City staff called Rietel and advised him again that he was not permitted to build on the water. At that time the first of two $100 fines were sent. (The second was sent out Nov. 21), bylaw enforcement officer Lesley Elchuk said in a report to council Tuesday.

A lawyer for the City gave legal notice to Rietel and Mehl to remove the structure on or before Dec. 15, and that failure to do so may lead to further action. Rietel attended the council-in-committee meeting at City hall Tuesday night to defend his position. Up until then, he had not contacted the City to pay or dispute the fines. Rietel feels like City staff is “harassing” him and said that he didn’t know about the municipal bylaws that made his actions unlawful. He also asked about other boat sheds on the waterway, and was told that existing structures were “grandfathered” – no new structures or replacement structures are permitted. Councillor Bruce Bell asked Rietel twice if he planned to cease and desist, but a clear answer was not given in return. If Rietel and Mehl do not remove the structure the City will petition the Supreme Court of B.C. for a mandatory order requiring the men to pay for the removal and the City’s legal cost, which may exceed $5,000, Elchuk said. “I’m not going to tear it down, it’s the last thing I have of value, my boat will disintegrate. It’s a wooden boat, it needs a boat house,” Rietel said Wednesday.

International murder case

Extradition possible for duo A mother and uncle appear in court for conspiring to kill over forbidden love.

Crown counsel Deborah Strachan speaks Monday outside B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver, where Malkit Kaur Sidhu and Surjit Singh Badesha face an extradition hearing over the murder of Sidhu’s daughter.

Badesha, who also wore a black turban, stared straight ahead for much of the hearing. At one point, Malkit smiled softly at a young infant being held by a woman in the gallery. Malkit tried to kiss the baby before leaving the court, but was restrained and led away by a sheriff. “You can’t do that,” he said, quietly. Crown counsel Deborah Strachan said the pair are charged with conspiracy to commit murder in India. She said the government will seek detainment at their bail hearing. The

date for that hearing was expected to be set on Wednesday afternoon. However that has now been delayed until at least Jan. 18. Malkit and Badesha remain in custody at the North Fraser Pretrial Centre.

Arson, attacks linked Fire bug targets house again.

An attempted arson at a Surrey home on the weekend has been linked to an ongoing Justice Institute/ ICBC investigation in which people affiliated with the school are being targeted in arsons and drive-by shootings. Sgt. Peter Thiessen, spokesman for the Lower Mainland District RCMP, said police were called to the home, in the 8300-block of 151st Street, just after 2:30 a.m. Saturday after a suspicious package left on the front door exploded, starting a small fire. Residents extinguished the blaze and no one was injured. This is the third time the house has been targeted, Thiessen noted. It was hit by an arson attack in April last year and was the site of an incident in May. A resident of the home is believed to be loosely connected with the Justice Institute of B.C., a post-secondary institution based in New Westminster, which has a campus in Maple Ridge.

Police reel in Ridge man on North Shore

Boaters are being encouraged to check on their fishing gear after police caught a Maple Ridge man allegedly stealing equipment from a boat moored at the Mosquito Creek marina. Mounties found the 43-year-old man carrying an assortment of high-end fishing reels and rods. A search of his vehicle produced more electronics, downriggers and other boating equipment.

Charity

Community takes care of its hungry, needy Christmas donations to the Friends In Need Food Bank were more than $100,000. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The community gave generously this Christmas and that means 2,500 needy people in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows will regularly receive food. Christmastime is when donations are the highest to most charities, and that includes the Friends In Need Food Bank, therefore, that’s when the big push is on to get as many donations as possible. The goal for the 2011 Christmas season was to raise $100,000 and Joanne Olson, food bank executive director, said they met that target. Olson was worried because several big fundraisers, the Santa Claus Parade and firefighters boot collection were down, but in the end they met their goal and well exceeded the fundraising efforts of Christmas 2010, which were about $88,000. Olson credited all the small donations coming in from individual donors that put them over their fundraising target as well as an improving economy. “People are doing a little better themselves so they’re thinking of us,” Olson said. The total budget for the food

bank is about $300,000, which ensures between 700 and 750 hampers are given out every month, feeding altogether about 2,500 people. These are seniors, young families, and singles, many of them the working poor who can’t make ends meet after all the bills are paid. “[Minimum wage] jobs don’t pay enough for people to survive,” Olson said. “Rents are very high, especially in the Lower Mainland.” The money raised this winter pays for food until June, Olson said. Olson pointed out that while other agencies have had funding cut, Friends In Need has continued to receive the same provincial grant, about $67,000 per year. The number of people accessing the food bank is going up slowly every year, Olson said. Clients receive monthly hampers, but in addition they can now come in once a week for fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as the usual bread and buns. There are about 50 regular volunteers at the food bank helping to sort donations and distribute food hampers and other food and household items – and some extras – to clients from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Altogether they contribute about 10,000 hours to help run the food bank, coordinated by

costs, for example, the rent on their building that’s $4,000 per month – and canned tomatoes. “You can make so much with [tomatoes],” Olson said. The Friends In Need Food Bank is ubiquitous in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Organizers of events around the two communities, sports events, community events, parties, meetings, regularly ask participants to bring a donation to the food bank.

After almost three years at the helm of the Friends In Need Food Bank, Olson said she wishes governments would look at the bigger picture around hunger and poverty to find solutions. Welfare clients are often “lumped” into one group, Olson said, and aren’t looked at as individuals. The dismantling of the mental health system has had a huge impact, she said, for example, when Riverview Hospital was closed. However, she blames both the left and right political wings for the problems, the right trying to save money and the left trying to get people out of institutions. While some institutions weren’t that good, she said, at least people had a roof over their heads. The Friends In Need Food Bank is gearing up for its next big fundraiser, celebrating the beginning of the Chinese Year of the Dragon on Jan. 28. The event will be held at the Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall, 12460 Harris Rd. Doors open at 6 p.m. with a Chinese buffet dinner served at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person and include dinner and an evening filled with live entertainment, live and silent auction, and more. It’s possible to buy a table for 16 for $350. For tickets call Ineke Boekhorst at 604-467-2420 or Joanne Olson at 604-4663663.

Kids’ classroom moves outdoors Participants of an environmental school are thinking outside the box – literally.

Students Travis Cooper, Grayson Sheaves, Liam Bates, and Jonathan Maiseyeu worked together on an activity Jan. 5.

by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

For a group of 60 local elementary students and their teachers, the outside world is their classroom. On any typical January day, the last place you’d figure most people would want to be is outdoors.

As for the often inclement “Wet” Coast weather, Maitland said the students have adapted well. “When you’re outside, and you’ve adapted and acclimatized to the conditions in which we live, then you look inside and wonder why people aren’t out,” Maitland said. Participants have spent a total of 10 days indoors since school started in September. Students said that they have enjoyed their outdoor learning experience, so far. “It’s hands-on learning, and instead of talking about it in a book and you don’t understand what the object looks like that you’re working with, you get to use it and see it,” Faith Fitzpatrick said. “And you get to experience it and see it happen,” Randi Williams added. Stacy Mulcahy’s two children Gavin (Grade 4) and Quinn (kindergrarten) are involved in the program. Mulcahy said choosing outdoor education is no different than putting her children into any other alternative program, such as French Immersion. She likes the fact the school is inclusive as opposed to exclusive. “They are allowed to use different ways to tell a story,” said Mulcahy. “It could be a verbal story, if it is a student who has good language skills and has trouble articulating language onto paper.” Mulcahy said her two sons are “outdoor kids” and enjoy being out in the elements. “I’m not concerned about it [outdoor learning],” she said. “So long as the students have the right tools to stay warm and dry, it isn’t an issue.” Since it’s a public school, all children are welcome, including those with special needs such as aut-

ism and health problems. The only ones who will be refused are those with what is called oppositional defiant disorder because they could pose a safety risk, Maitland said.

You & The Law CAR CRASH CONCUSSION AND ITS CONSEQUENCES

Sport-induced injuries get the most press. But car accidents are by far the most common source of concussions, which in some cases, have life-long effects. A 2010 decision of the Supreme Court of BC dealt with such a case. “Helen” (not her real name), 17, was a passenger in a truck that drove off the road and hit a tree. Although she was wearing her seatbelt, her forehead struck the windshield so hard that it starred the windshield. She suffered a mild concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) – terms the court said were interchangeable. She also suffered neck and back injuries and soft tissue injuries. The case was prudently brought to trial only some 7 years after the accident, at which time Helen was still suffering from after-effects. This allowed the court to evaluate the longer term consequences that can follow from such brain injuries. Before the mishap, Helen was a delight to her family and friends. She had a fun-loving, outgoing personality, did reasonably well in school and put most of her energy into her first love, sports. The supervisor at her first part-time job (when she was 15) described her as “fun loving, chatty, crazy, a joy to have around.” Her plan was to become a police officer, and she likely would have been able to achieve that career goal or succeed at an alternative career. After the accident, and well after the immediate effects of the impact had passed, a different picture emerged. While she worked hard to regain her former self, Helen was no longer organized, punctual or reliable. On college and university team projects, she was disorganized and perennially late, and her written communications were poor. Unlike before, she needed study aids like cue cards as well as frequent note reviews. She could only handle a reduced course load and took longer to earn her college diploma and university degree. She lost her first job after university because of performance difficulties.

Her emotional and social profile changed as well. She suffered from serious depression for months after the accident. Long term, her personality became volatile. Her temperament could change quickly and she could become mean. She would sometimes say hurtful things, without realizing the effects of her words. She became moody and a sometimes difficult person to be around. Helen’s career prospects, as well as her ability to enjoy life and carry out ordinary tasks without assistance, were much reduced. In short, her life changed permanently for the worse. The court in this case pointed out that “mild” concussion or MTBI refers to the physical damage to the brain not the potential consequences, which in exceptional cases can be long-lasting and severe. There is no single objective test to establish MTBI, which may exist even if, as here, it wasn’t detected by an MRI scan. The court assessed Helen’s lost career opportunities and diminished earning capacity at $1 million. It also awarded her damages for the costs of future care and other losses. This case shows how important it can be to have a thoroughly prepared and well-presented case in order to bring out the sometimes subtle consequences of a concussion – before-and-after differences in cognitive abilities plus changes in social skills, behaviour, mood and personality, all brought about by a “mild” concussion.

Our View

Madness in the method Chilliwack mayor and council got raises this year – based on the salaries paid to mayors and councillors in other municipalities such as Maple Ridge. The TIMES reported last summer that Maple Ridge’s mayor and council voted for a raise for the incoming council. Maple Ridge’s salaries were based on salaries paid to mayors and councillors in Abbotsford, Coquitlam, Langley Township, North Vancouver, Port Coquitlam, Burnaby, Delta, New Westminster, District of North Vancouver, and Richmond. One of the reasons why this policy, which figures out salaries, was put in place in 2005 was to make sure compensation was “competitive” with the “comparison market.” Competitive is one way of putting it. Incestuous is another word that comes to mind. In July, Councillors Cheryl Ashlie and Michael Morden both voted against the Maple Ridge raises saying they didn’t agree with the method. Morden called it a “chicken and egg” situation. And after an election with much rhetoric around wasting taxpayer money, Maple Ridge’s new council decided in December to hold off on the raises, saving taxpayers about $12,000 this year. Mayor and councillors should be compensated for their increasingly complex jobs, but they have to figure out a new way to calculate these salaries. Ashlie suggested that the new municipal auditor could address the problem around council salaries, which would give an external review to the matter. Whatever the solution, it has to be better than how local municipalities compare themselves to other municipalities that are in turn being compared to each other. M.R.

Federal politics

Kindness killing Canada Dear Editor,

Where is the visibly absent morality and loyalty to needy Canadians by both federal and provincial government authorities? Canada insanely spends billions on sickening costly war efforts (Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Eqypt) or adopted pet projects like Haiti, Peru, Africa, Pakistan, etc. and yet turns a blind eye to our domestic crises and these overpaid clowns in government call themselves, “representatives of the people?” Which people: foreign crooked government or whining others looking for freebie handouts in never repaying their loans? Whether it is a political stunt or moral convictions, we should applaud people like Jagrup Brar, MLA for Surrey Fleetwood, who followed in the footsteps of late MLA and BC Lions player Emery Barnes by going on welfare to raise awareness of poverty in B.C. Brar is living on $610 for the month of January in an effort to gain a “first-hand experience” of how an estimated 180,000 Britsh Columbians live. How many people live on unacceptable low-income salaries or joblessness in a developed nation like Canada or U.S.A.? Unacceptably, far too many including

poor First Nations communities. The arrogant Conservative government gives $20 million to Africa for condoms – what for, party balloons? How about the $400-million forgiven loan to Pakistan (very crooked nation), government spending insane money on the G8 Summit or Olympic nonsense, throwing cash at the military for insanely costly fighter jets, babysitting every whimpering nation with a “cut pinkie” while betraying our people at home. How many politicians have ever lined up at food banks to dine with the poor, slept on the street of crime-infested areas, walked dangerous crime drug streets at night at 2 a.m. without police protection, stayed with an impoverished First Nations family feeling the bitter cold, or used a bucket for a toilet. No wonder people despise politics and voter turnout is diminishing at all levels. We cannot wet-nurse everyone or be a donor to every dishonest land. Our people deserve help more than others abroad. We are our own worst enemies and bleeding hearts will erode this landscape.

Kerwin Maude, Pitt Meadows

Clean energy Overcharging needed to power growth Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

Something that really needs to be addressed this year is B.C.’s dwindling supply of domestically generated electricity [More power options needed, Jan. 10 Letters, TIMES]. Over the past decade, B.C. has become a chronic net importer of electricity due to increasing population and increasing electricity demand without any significant increase in generating capacity. The people of B.C. need to know that it takes at least a decade to get energy projects off the ground, taking them from the concept stage to the operational stage. Along the way there are numerous reviews and permitting processes, not to mention expensive studies that need to be conducted, completed, and submitted. And even when an electricity purchase agreement with BC Hydro is negotiated, half of all approved projects never get built for a variety of reasons. The risk involved is very high even with the security of a solid customer for the energy product being produced. Ramping up job creation and economic development in B.C. is an excellent objective and it’s vitally important to communities provincewide. But we also need to do something to ramp up the development of our clean energy resources so we can power this growth. Without reliable, cost-effective sources of clean, renewable energy, the province’s job creation and economic development goals will only take us half the way there. Fred Reemeyer, Coquitlam

I was going to purchase a couple game cards for the Internet – which work like gift cards – at Shoppers Drug Mart, and had another stop to make so decided to wait and purchase them at 7-Eleven. I got there and grabbed what I wanted and got to the till to discover they are charging HST on all gift and phone cards, game cards, etc. I informed the manager that they were not supposed to be charging HST on these items, and she told me “yes they were allowed to be doing so.” I then went back to Shoppers Drug Mart and purchased the same cards, with no HST. I spoke to the clerk there, and was told that no – in fact – there is not supposed to be any HST charged for such an item and that 7-Eleven was ripping people off if they were doing that. I went back to 7-Eleven and showed the manager the receipt, and she asked to photocopy it. Once home, I had my wife do some phoning around and after several different calls, she was connected with the “informant leads” for HST/GST. The agent took the info and confirmed that in fact 7-Eleven was wrong to be charging for this item and they would look into the matter. I would like to know how many people have purchased and paid for this, either not knowing they don’t have to, or simply not noticing they have paid HST. Where is all that money and how do they get it back? The 7-Eleven is a big enough franchise/business that they should have people in place who know what they can and cannot charge for. It is bad enough that we are paying through the roof for everything these days, but when stores do stuff like this, it is infuriating. I think they should be held accountable.

Look at language

Bliss not found in stores next to iPhones “They flash upon the inward eye which is the bliss of solitude.”

T

his quote from William Wordsworth’s Daffodils, one of the best known poems in the English language, tells us not just what the author experienced and valued but what might be available to all of us. Wordsworth is saying that if we really look at something, as he looked at daffodils beside a lake, we own it, it becomes part of us to be retrieved and enjoyed again, inwardly, whenever we wish. Wordsworth died in 1850, so he lived through a quieter period of history – before the automobile, the airplane, and all the modern electronic equipment we have today. He didn’t drive to the lake and park and make sure he had his Blackberry with him before he walked among the daffodils. He didn’t text or tweet or take photos of what he remembered later as a stretch of waving golden heads beneath the trees. He gazed and gazed. It’s a good old word, gaze. It means to look intently, long and steadily with interest, wonder or delight. It is different from a casual glance or a quick look in passing while busy at doing or thinking about something else; different from noticing something and taking a quick

Here and There by Alan Woodland

picture of it that might or might not be briefly looked at some other time. By gazing intently at the “golden daffodils,” the writer has imprinted them on his inward eye. How’s your inward eye these days? When did you last see with it to bring you the bliss of solitude? While you are thinking about that, let’s look at those two words, bliss and solitude. We don’t hear a lot about bliss in these busy days. Like gazing, bliss needs a little time. It means great happiness, perfect joy. Its synonyms are ecstasy and rapture. We aren’t likely to meet bliss while racing from one task to another. We won’t find it on the shelves in Wal-Mart. And as for solitude, how often do we have the chance to be really by ourselves for long enough to experience bliss without any electronic equipment to connect or distract us. The lovely word, solitude, can

mean both, voluntarily, joyfully, and gratefully being by yourself, away from the company of others; or being unhappily alone without companions. Its meaning has shifted slightly since Wordworth used it. He wants the reader to know about the desirable state of being by yourself so that you can be in touch with those inner delights, to see with your inner eye and listen with your inner ear, to invite your memory to take you back to a place of enchantment. He’s not writing about loneliness. Sadly, poetry itself may be losing its power to do what Wordsworth’s Daffodils has done – to whisk you away to another world of contemplation and happiness, while, at the same time, keeping you connected to the central core of the individual human being you are. Last year, I read several articles about the use (and overuse) of iPhones and iPods, and the concern that we may be losing something precious, that we may be closing the doors to our inner selves as we spend so much time talking and texting and tweeting. Well, maybe, just the opposite will occur and the ability to communicate so readily and so easily will open those doors, not close them. Whatever happens, it is my wish in this new year, that you enjoy your share of bliss and that you find a little solace in your solitude.

Rookie with plenty of potential Freshman Malcolm Williams is off to an impressive start with the UBC T-Birds. by Howard Tsumura The Province

On the night that the current Canada West season opened back in mid-November at UBC’s War Memorial Gym, the hard court mojo was so thick in the air that it almost seemed like the gods of Thunderbirds men’s basketball had a special plan for a rookie shooting guard from Pitt Meadows named Malcolm Williams. Pressed into starting action in his first-ever conference game due to an injury to veteran Maple Ridge alumni Doug Plumb, Williams donned his No. 11 jersey and took to the floor surrounded by two of the program’s best scoring guards. On the bench, Casey Archibald, UBC’s second all-time leading scorer, whose old number was also 11, was in suit and tie, offering last-second encouragement to the rookie as Archibald prepared for his first-ever game as the Birds’ new lead assistant coach following a four-year pro career overseas. And on the floor, fifth-year senior Nathan Yu, perhaps the purest shooting threat in the country, was set to join him in the backcourt to begin what was symbolically, a season-long passing of the torch between veteran and rookie. Oh, did we forget to mention that this all took place on the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011? It was all so perfectly scripted that Williams, the highly decorated former prep star from Pitt Meadows with a reputation for playing big in big games, couldn’t possibly disappoint. And he didn’t. All he did that night was lead the team in scoring with 19 points in a 91-55 demolition of Brandon. In his 11 previous seasons as UBC coach, Thunderbirds’ bench boss Kevin Hanson had never had a pure freshman starter playing his

Malcolm Williams is proving himself a worthy addition to the UBC men’s basketball team. first conference game lead his team in scoring. Yet while the numerals converged perfectly that night, Williams hasn’t needed any kind of gimmicky formulas to find success in the days and weeks since his debut. “Statistically you can look at guys like Casey Archibald and Nathan Yu, and neither of them were putting up the kinds of stats that Malcolm is right now when

they were rookies,” said Hanson, who has watched Williams average 13.8 points per game while shooting 55 per cent from the field and 42 per cent from beyond the arc, largely coming off the bench. “His defence has been solid, and I actually think he’s one of our best defensive players, if not our best. So if he continues to improve and he maintains his work ethic, he can rank right up there with the best at UBC,” he added.

The learning environment has done nothing but help. Williams is one of six first-or second-year players within a UBC program which largely starts five fifth-year seniors. It’s a mix that has surrounded him with veterans, but one which next season will ask him to assume a huge mantle of responsibility as just a second-year man. “I have been a little bit surprised,” Williams said of his early success. “But when it comes right down to it, it’s just playing basketball. There’s not as much pressure on you as a rookie, so you can just go in there and work hard.” Playing against Plumb and Yu each day in practice can be a humbling experience, but it is one Williams has embraced. And he’s learned that the harder he works on the floor in games, the more often those two will find him for uncontested looks from three-point range. Still, the rate at which Williams matures in the Canada West will be telling for UBC’s fortunes as it attempts to get back to the national tournament during a season in which three of its conference mates (Victoria, Saskatchewan, Alberta) are ranked above them in the national poll, and another (Fraser Valley) is nipping at their heels. Hit totals have thus far been impressive, but when placed against Archibald’s career accomplishments (two-time first team All-Canadian, two-time Canada West MVP), it is a journey just beginning. Archibald averaged just 7.8 points per game as a rookie in 2003-04, but over the next four seasons went to 16.9, 20.4, 18.3 and 21.0 over a conference career that saw him start 79 of a possible 82 games, the three he didn’t being missed due to injury. Yu, who began his career at UBC upon Archibald’s departure in 2007, averaged just 2.4 points as a rookie, but currently leads the team at 21.3 points.

LOEWEN, Norma Elaine

Elaine died peacefully January 9, 2012 at Maple Ridge. Born August 7, 1925 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She is predeceased by her mother Mabel Haines. Norma is survived by her children, Dale (Janice), Darlene (Jim), Lorne, 8 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. As a young woman she worked in a munitions factory during WWII then came to Vancouver after the war. She was always full of life and worked hard as a single mom taking care of and raising her children with strong values. Norma was ahead of her time in teaching her children equality – that we are to love and respect all people no matter race, creed, colour or status in society. Norma was a champion of the underdog and would give the shirt off her back to help you. Norma had a love for the outdoors and the Peace Country of northern Alberta. She enjoyed fishing with her mother and children in tow, spending as much time as possible in her VW Van on the rivers and lakes of BC, always searching for the elusive great fish that always got away. Norma worked many jobs but found her niche in housekeeping. She worked her way through the ranks starting as a cleaner in the BC hospitals system, eventually becoming the Executive Housekeeper at the Maple Ridge Hospital until she retired. Norma worked hard in her community as a volunteer and was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion #88 Woman’s Auxiliary and the Army, Navy and Air Force service club. On her passing a small but bright spot in the universe has dimmed and died. Donations in her memory can be made to the local Food Bank in order to help those in need. No service will be held by request - Cremation. Online condolences to the family may be made to www.wiebeandjeskefh.com. Wiebe & Jeske Funeral Services - 604.859.5885

Just wanted to thank Team Diverse, and the outstanding installers working with Diverse Flooring. Right from start to finish we were impressed with the professional, courteous manner of everyone on your team. We were called each day to confirm the time the installers would arrive and were continually called to make sure we were happy and if there was anything you could do for us. The end results are fantastic; we love all our new flooring and would highly recommend Diverse Flooring!
