Berry farmers hoping for some summer sun June’s chilly weather has affected the strawberry and blueberry seasons locally. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

The south coast’s June gloom has delayed the strawberry season at Formosa Nursery in Pitt Meadows, but it hasn’t taken a bite out of the popular seasonal berries. “Junuary” has put a chill on the month that transitions from spring to summer. Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones confirms it’s been an abnormally cold and wet June in the Fraser Valley, noting that the mean temperature – an average of the coldest and warmest temperatures each day – recorded at the Abbotsford weather station for the first 25 days of June was 13.7ºC. That’s well below the month’s normal of 15.1ºC. A total of 117 millimetres of rain has fallen on the region up to Monday. That’s well above the Troy Landreville/TIMES average amount. The totals have been inflated by Formosa Nursery manager Ting Wu held a handful of strawberries that he recently plucked from the organic farm bordering Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. large downpours on June 7 (20 Blueberries ripen in July and August. said, adding that rain and colder temperOther effects, he said – more so from mm), June 22 (16 mm) and June 23 The high bush, northern varieties grown atures will reduce the farm’s late season the rain and the rising river – are that the (23 mm). at Formosa get “stressed out” by cool fruit. fields are saturated with water, preventThe June chill has delayed the strawtemperatures and rainfall, Wu said.

Pennies for Fox run The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 88 is collecting pennies for the Terry Fox Run. Legionnaires are encouraging people to bring their pennies to the lounge as the Canadian government looks to phase out the one-cent coin. The pennies will be collected at the legion, and then on Aug. 26, volunteers will count and wrap them. The federal government announced this spring that the penny will be phased out of usage. According to the Canadian mint, each penny costs 1.6 cents to manufacture. The last penny was struck on May 4, and they will no longer be circulated as of this fall. • More at www.mrtimes.com

Film has faded into memory at the Hollywood 3 Cinema in Pitt Meadows. The digital age officially began at 5 p.m. Thursday, June 21 with the showing of The Pirates! Band of Misfits at the Hollywood 3, which seats 400 patrons. The animated flick is the first digital movie shown at one of the few remaining independent theatres in the Lower Mainland. Rahim Manji, owner of the Pitt Meadows Hollywood 3 as well as the Hollywood 3 in Surrey and the Dolphin Cinema II in Burnaby, knew the switch from film to digital was inevitable. The 37-year-old Manji, who has been in the theatre business for the past decade, greets the change with mixed emotions. Ultimately, it’s a paradigm shift in the way movies are being shown at the Pitt Meadows theatre, which has operated for 35 years but was closed for six years before being reopened in April 2011. On June 21, technologists from Cinematronix and Hank Rensmaag, an electrician from Mott Electric, dismantled and removed the 1970s era, 35-mm projectors, making way for the up-to-date computerized system. “We didn’t really have a choice,” Manji said, when asked about the change. “The way of the land is, that [the distributors] are moving it all to digital. They’re not doing film anymore.” Movies on film are getting increasingly difficult to acquire. “Over the past six months, it was getting longer and longer for us to get movies,” Manji said. “Our whole idea with this theatre was getting movies as quickly as we could. Two or three weeks after it came out, it was going in our theatre.” With what appears to be the inevitable demise of film, Manji couldn’t meet this objective. “And it’s going to get worse,” Manji predicted. There are plenty of advantages with going digital, Manji said: “The picture quality is amazing, we have exactly the same projectors as Cineplex does, we have Dolby digital sound, there’s not going to be any scratches

Council defers development decision

Local lawyer remembered

A bioswale proposed on the Jackson Farm concerns folks who want the property to remain unchanged.

Thom Sprague worked for 30 years in the Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam area.

Edward (Eddy) Pope discovered a ladybug at the historic Jackson Farm last weekend as his father helped clear blackberry brambles from the site.

by Maria Rantanen

Thomas Sprague, a local lawyer, passed away last week at Ridge Meadows Hospital, surrounded by his family. Sprague was a lawyer in the Pitt Meadows and Port Coquitlam areas for more than 30 years. Sprague was born in Windsor, Ont. on Oct. 23, 1947 where he grew up and attended the University of Windsor. He left behind his wife Dwaina, three children, Tyla, Bianca, Elliott, and Molly, and two grandchildren, Benjamin and Graydon. Sprague was well known as a motorcycle enthusiast, for his love of tinkering away on his property, taking lots of photos of family and friends, and running. Memorial services were held on Tuesday for family and close friends at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel, and on Wednesday at the SFU Diamond Alumni Centre. A Facebook page has been set up: www.facebook.com/RememberingThomasSprague. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. The hospital foundation can be reached at 604-4631822.

A champion of Jackson Farm is disappointed council is still considering development next to the historic farm in Albion. At Tuesday’s council meeting, Maple Ridge council asked District staff to go back to the proponent of a development proposed next to Lower Jackson Farm to change the number of homes proposed for the lot. Council was set to make a decision on the lot at 244th Street and 102nd Avenue at the meeting, but decided to defer it until the next council meeting. The Friends of Jackson Farm, who fought to preserve the farm and who say there are no drainage problems on the property, are opposed to a bioswale being proposed that would provide a buffer between the development and the farm. Stuart Pledge, who lives in Thornhill and passes the Jackson Farm every day, said he was “disappointed” that council’s concern was the density of the proposed development and not the bioswale that

TIMES files

is being proposed for the lower part of the farm. “I see it as pretty insignificant the changes they’re proposing,” Pledge said, adding that he considered it just a “token gesture.” The proposed bioswale would alter one and a half acres of the Lower Jackson Farm, Pledge pointed out, adding that “why not just leave the park alone?” He is worried the bioswale will “diminish” the property. “My focus is to preserve this site because it’s something real-

ly special,” Pledge said. He added that the farm in its current state doesn’t cost the District of Maple Ridge anything. But Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said the “lower bowl” of the farm has swampy wetlands and that needs to be dealt with. There’s no intention on council’s part to “nibble” away at the farm and develop it, Daykin said. And, he added, the Lower Jackson Farm is designated as a

park in the land title office, and it’s very difficult to change that. An agreement was made allowing the upper part of historic farm to be developed for homes while the lower part would be preserved as a park and turned over to the District of Maple Ridge. Council is planning to consider what it will be done to the Lower Jackson Farm in the near future. The decision on the proposed development has been deferred to the July 10 council meeting.

The City of Pitt Meadows has lifted its evacuation alert on eight properties, but Wharf Street homes in Maple Ridge continued to be on alert as of The TIMES presstime on Wednesday. More information is expected today (Thursday) and Friday on possible flood threats as the Fraser River is expected to get another pulse of water. However, previously forecast levels have been brought down and it is estimated that the water will rise to about 6.3 or 6.4 metres. In the meantime, the B.C. Environment Ministry has declared a cluster of derelict ferries and steamers tied up at Mission to be an environmental emergency.

The former Queen of Sidney and six other vessels are a risk to public safety and infrastructure downstream, the government announced late Tuesday afternoon. The ministry has issued an emergency declaration and will be securing the boats as soon as possible. The government described them as “improperly secured.” If the boats break loose, they could head downstream towards Abbotsford, Maple Ridge, or Langley, and crash into other river traffic, bridges, and houseboats. The risk of secondary oil or fuel spills if one of the boats hit another vessel was also a consideration, according to the ministry. Updates will be posted on the Maple Ridge website at www.mapleridge.ca and the Pitt Meadows website at www.pittmeadows.bc.ca.

Our View

The once and future Canada This weekend we will celebrate Canada Day, marking 145 years of this country’s existence as an independent nation. It’s a good time to put your feet up, sip something cool, enjoy some sunshine (we hope) and relax for a bit, basking in the lives we can lead in one of the richest and most peaceful nations in the world. It’s also a good time to remember that Canada is a moving target. We’re not the same nation at 145 that we were at 144, or in the centennial year of 1967, or during the wars or in the throes of the Great Depression. This country is an ongoing experiment in politics, sociology, and economics. If Canadians have any advantages as we look into the future, it’s that we can’t help but be aware of the fact that we are an artificial creation. We’re not some monolithic ethnic group or insular clan. We are the result of countless decisions and compromises made by explorers and First Nations people, map makers and war makers, francophones and anglophones and allophones. They carved a nation out between early colonialism, staved off the Manifest Destiny of our friends to the south, and then pried themselves loose from the somewhat stifling embrace of Great Britain. Since then, Canadians have proved adept at making war and keeping peace, at science and business, at both taming a vast landscape and appreciating its undisturbed grandeur. We know that there is no perfect, finished Canada. The experiment will never be over. We have screwed up more than a few times over the past 144 years. We’re making mistakes now that our grandchildren will have to correct, and they’ll make mistakes of their own. If they’re lucky, they’ll be able to have a day to appreciate the good choices we made. – M.C.

Dear Editor,

Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Korean War veteran Wayne Zinger penned a poem praising Canada.

National birthday

Canada: A poet’s patriotic tribute This great expanse of ice and snow Where half the year the cold winds blow, Bated beneath the aurora’s glow, By God, I love this land!

Peopled from places far and wide Joined together in national pride Building a nation side by side Willing to lend a hand. Loaded with comics and actors galore, Musicians who open every door. High on the charts our bands do soar We are a happy band. We live in a very peaceful place The safest of all the human race, Although a few still fall from grace. But they are quickly canned. Oil and minerals, water and wood Prairie grain gives the world its food Our overall economy is very good You’d think that this was planned. Our universities are second to none Check the world prizes that we’ve won. The new generation says we’re not done Life can be so grand! Peacekeepers for decades past Ready to roll at the very first blast We may be small, but far from last Our soldiers make a stand. Our accomplishments are not forlorn, Many inventions have been born. We just don’t bother to blow our horn We’ve filled many a demand. So in this great land of ice and snow It’s necessity that makes us grow Lights our minds with the aurora’s glow We truly love this land!

Wayne Zinger, Maple Ridge

CITY

Randy Kamp must start saving fish What will be left of Canada’s fisheries after MP Randy Kamp is through? He voted to pass the Conservative government’s reckless changes to the Fisheries Act, which remove provisions that protect fish habitat from destruction. Habitat destruction is the most common reason for decline of a species. Without habitat, we can’t have healthy fish stocks. These changes undo the cornerstone of environmental law in Canada and have attracted widespread opposition – even from Conservatives. Former Conservative fisheries ministers Tom Siddon and John Fraser have publicly opposed the changes. So have more than 625 scientists and former Liberal fisheries ministers Herb Dhaliwal and David Anderson. Existing laws can be improved, but these changes are being passed without the proper scrutiny they need to get the balance right. The Conservatives are ramming them through in their 400-page omnibus budget bill, leaving no time for proper study. They claim these changes are so essential that they have to be passed right away, yet they didn’t even merit a single mention in the Conservatives’ recent election platform. The changes are part of a widespread, willing neglect for our fish by the Conservatives. While they have grown public spending by leaps and bounds over their six years in power, they have cut the Department of Fisheries and Oceans by more than 25 per cent. Poor enforcement has greatly reduced the number of pollution and habitat violations that are pursued by DFO; indeed, convictions for violations are now almost non-existent. More than 75,000 Canadians are directly or indirectly employed through our fisheries, and many more fish for fun, with one in every seven adult Canadians applying for licences every year. Mr. Kamp needs to shake off the iron-grip of the prime minister’s office, start thinking for himself, and protect our fish.

Orchestra backs musical Four groups have worked together to bring a production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe to The ACT. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The upcoming production of Iolanthe at The ACT is a “unique” collaboration in Maple Ridge, according to its director. The production is a collaboration between the Bergthorson Academy of Musical Arts, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Arts Council, the newly formed Ridge Meadows Orchestra, and Odeum Theatre, a non-profit theatre group run by Rayne Beveridge. The Ridge Meadows Orchestra was formed less than a year ago, and Beveridge, who is conducting it, is hoping it will eventually turn into a full symphony. “It’s exciting for a community to have an orchestra – it’s like a benchmark,” Beveridge said. Having the orchestra provide the music instead of a backing track will make a huge difference to the production of Iolanthe, Beveridge said. Iolanthe is a Gilbert and Sullivan musical that is a parody of British politics of

the late 19th century. The arts council has supported the production of the musical as part of its arts programming. This is the first year such a collaboration has happened and Karen Pighin, communications manager for the arts council, said she hopes it continues next year. “I’m grateful they’re willing to support us... to develop arts in the community,” Beveridge said. The 19 actors involved have been working on Iolanthe since September. The production has benefited from inkind donations as well, Beveridge said, for example, they were lent a grand piano for several days including the moving costs. This helps tremendously, Beveridge pointed out, as the production is being run on a “shoestring budget.” The grand piano is an important piece, Beveridge added, because of the calibre of their pianist, Sergei Saratovsky. The Ridge Meadows Orchestra is accepting new registrations. Auditions will be held on July 3 at Westacres, 23575 124th Ave. at 7:30 p.m. Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe will be presented at The ACT this Saturday, June 30. Showtimes are at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the ACT: four for $40, $12 in advance, and $15 at the door.

Musical tribute

Elvis singer glad to be back home in Canada Former Maple Ridge resident Darren Lee will be back in town Friday to sing at The ACT. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@mrtimes.com

Darren Lee called Maple Ridge home before he took off to Vegas for an unprecedented 11-year-stint impersonating Elvis along the Sin City strip. Now, Lee is not only excited to be living back in Canada with his wife Allison and their one-year-old twin daughters Sienna and Shayla, but psyched about returning to his old stomping grounds for a concert next week at The ACT. A dozen years ago now, before The ACT was even opened in Maple Ridge, Lee was accepted into the American Superstars Show. Admittedly, it’s a job he didn’t really enjoy much. But he’s still grateful for the opportunities and experience it gave him. “If I had had my way, I would have left after the first two years,” Lee said, acknowledging that he wishes he’d never even left Canada. The show in Vegas was an ensemble, with Lee joining a team of others impersonating the likes of Michael Jackson and Madonna, performing two shows a night, six nights a week, with only two vacations in his 11 years there. “I opened the show for the entire run, and I performed for about 13 minutes a show – not very rewarding,” he shared with The TIMES. When his contract came up for renewal last year, Lee bowed out. He and his

expectant wife, anxious to raise their girls in Canada, opted instead to return home. “I feel like I’ve been paroled,” he said. “I got to be a better singer and a more professional act by spending my time in Vegas, but you will never know how happy I am to be back home, and have the time to watch my girls grow up.” Lee’s been performing as Darren Lee & The Memphis Flash around the Lower Mainland since his return, and will be bringing that show to Maple Ridge next Friday. “I tell everyone I am a full-time dad, part-time Elvis,” Lee said, noting that the career switch has been a little harder than he expected. “It is tough. I get about three hours sleep a night. I can’t get the late hours of Vegas out of my system,” he said, anxiously embracing the new fatherhood gig. So how did Darren Lee go from being a Grade 5 student in a Catholic-run school to being one of the world’s top Elvis impersonators? In part, he blames it on a smoking, drinking, jean-wearing nun who started a school choir and enlisted him. “We wouldn’t be talking if it weren’t for Sister Claire Ashe,” he said. “My mom had a guitar, so she taught me to play so I could help accompany the group. I used the chords she taught me to learn Elvis songs.” Fast forward to 1988, when he met a guy at an Elvis contest in Edmonton that shared Lee’s name with a promoter of the Elvis, Elvis, Elvis show. The rest, he said was history, as he focused his efforts on mastering the distinct Elvis moves. The voice, he said, came later. “After years of performing, you either

Crowning glory

Queen Joan reminisces 65 years later

In 1947 Canada Day was called Dominion Day and a Haney teenager was crowned the queen.

crowning of the queen was a fundraiser for the Lions Club. Tickets would be sold with each princess earning 50 points per ticket. The money raised went back into the community via the Lions. It was a tight race in 1947 with Roberts getting 894 votes, winning by only 162 votes to runner up May Maki, who received 732 votes. In total the five princesses received 2,515 votes. “May [Maki] was so beautiful and talented, she could sing and dance,” Roberts recalled.

Queen Joan Crowned Before Throngs On Aggie Grounds, The Gazette, July 4, 1947: Tuesday, July First, Dominion Day, was a record setting day in the district. The weather, the setting, the program, the crowds – unestimated – joined forces to make the third annual Lions Club Carnival outstanding in community events. Queen Joan received her crown and robe, signia of carnival office, from retiring queen Marion Peacock, in a simple but fitting ceremony, before a large audience. The ceremony was held on an attractive stage, decorated for the carnival program. Sixty-five years later and Queen Joan Graham – now Joan Roberts – remembers the day well. She pointed to where that decorated stage was set up – right in front of where The ACT sits now, in the same community she calls home. “It was a beautiful day, it was

the three other contestants. “It was wonderful, it was so exciting,” Roberts said. “We were so self-involved we didn’t know what else was happening around us,” said Lien, who was in Grade 10 at that time. The five Dominion Day princesses represented various areas throughout the district.

Every year the show gets bigger at the Caribbean Festival, and this year is no exception with world renown Leroy Sibbles of the Heptones headlining the event. Organizer Deddy Geese said entertainers, vendors, and sponsors are in place, but the festival could still use some help from a few extra volunteers on Saturday. The last-minute details are being worked out for the 12th annual Caribbean Festival, set for July 14 and 15 this year. Every year except the first – when the festival started as a stage at McIntosh Avenue and 224th Street with a couple bands – the weather has held out for the family-friendly event. “Weather plays a big, big part and is at the back of any organizer’s mind,” Geese said. Last year, the Caribbean Festival debuted a Beach Boys tribute band, which attracted a “totally different festival going crowd,” Geese said, drawing about 2,500 people to the concert. This year Mike Amaral’s California Beach Boys will be back on the Saturday night. After a couple-year hiatus, King Fish will be back with a limbo performance

Hamburgers – Part 3

Making perfect burgers at home

W

hen building a burger from scratch, many people tend to be scant with the toppings, to minimize the amount of preparation – but they’re missing the best opportunity to complement the patty that they have proudly created. Going without complementary toppings is like having mashed potatoes without gravy, or apple pie without ice cream. Mayonnaise, mustard, relish, and ketchup are obvious additions. A classic, but essential way to top any burger is with the traditional lettuce, tomato, and cheese. But there are many others to consider: bacon, onion (fresh or sauteed), pickles, etc. The main thing to remember when adding vegetables (such as lettuce and tomato) is to make sure you season them with salt and pepper – that one step will dramatically enhance the flavour of your finished burger. The toppings don’t have to stop there. There are countless others that could crown your masterpiece. They could be hot sauces, ethnic sauces, different types of mustards, salad dressings, dips, spreads, olives, sundried tomatoes, and an assortment of cheeses, for example. The type of bread or bun you choose could be based on a number of factors. Maybe you are creating a burger of a certain

ethnic cuisine, such as an Italian burger; then I would use a type of Italian bread, like a ciabatta bun, for example. Or perhaps your burgers are quite messy, dripping with toppings; then I suggest a denser bread or bun, to keep it more firm for eating the burger. Try to stay away from the plain, generic, small white burger buns, as they are just so ordinary and boring. Also, toasting the bread and buns on the grill always adds more texture and flavour to your finished burger – brush lightly with oil and put directly on the grates of your barbecue until lightly charred and toasted. One last note: always melt the cheese onto the burger patty during the last part of the cooking time, if using a meltable cheese. Melted gooey cheese is more appealing not only in taste, but presentation, as well. This is the final entry of a three-part series on perfecting homemade burgers. If you missed either of the other two parts, one on meat selection and the other on ingredients to add to the burger mix, email Chef Dez at dez@chefdez.com and he will be more than happy to send them to you.

One of the community’s hidden gems, Alouette Lake is located within Golden Ears Provincial Park. Access is paved and well marked.

There is a large public day area at the south end of the lake. A large public beach, picnic site, and campground are part of the provincial park. For more information visit www.env.gov. bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/ golden_ears.

Unusual tailed frogs and the dipper bird will be found along the creek. Fish are fed two to four times per day with a special dry fish food. Feeding time is always a hit with kids. The hatchery offers free tours on weekends between 1 to 3 p.m. For more information email admin@keeps.org.

Apples describes her life as a whirlwind of possibilities that eventually led her to Miss BC. “The idea to influence people in a positive way and to help people who may not be able to help themselves is an absolute remarkable experience that I am glad to be a part of,” said Apples, who grew up in the small northern B.C. town of Fort St. John where opportunities like Miss BC weren’t available. Following a few days of workshops and training, the actual competition starts with public introductions and a talent show on Sunday and culminates with the Miss BC pageant on Monday, July 2 at the Chief Sepass Theatre in Fort Langley. Voting and ticket information is available online at www.missbc.ca.

Limited-time offer

First-time buyers of new homes could save thousands John Becker has run his own law firm in Pitt Meadows for more than 30 years, focusing his practice on corporate commercial real estate and business succession planning. Send questions to: info@beckerlawyers.ca

Legal Briefs

by John Becker

e’re seeing some beautiful new real estate developments in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows area, and many are at a variety of prices to suit a wide range of purchasers. Whatever you choose, purchasing a home is expensive so it’s nice to save on government-offered programs whenever you can.

Some buyers will qualify for the firsttime home buyers’ exemption from property transfer tax, but now there is another way to save. The BC First-Time, New Home Buyers’ Bonus is a new time-limited program that could save you thousands of dollars. Purchases of new homes made between Feb. 21, 2012 and March 31, 2013 by firsttime buyers in B.C. can receive a one-time bonus payment worth up to $10,000. The bonus is equal to five per cent of the purchase price (not including HST) up to a maximum of $10,000. The bonus is scaled back for higherincome earners, but it’s still worthwhile investigating. The savings could help you hire movers, decorate your new home, take care of some mortgage payments, or be used in other useful ways. You can apply directly to the BC Ministry of Finance for the bonus any time

after you have taken ownership or possession of your home, provided you meet all the eligibility criteria.

How to qualify for the bonus:

The criteria for eligibility centres largely on two main factors: you are a new B.C.resident homeowner and that the home is newly constructed or substantially (90 per cent) renovated. More specifically, you will qualify if: • You purchase or build an eligible new home located in B.C. • You intend to live in the house as a primary residence. • You, or for couples, you and your spouse or common-law partner, have never previously owned a primary residence anywhere in the world. • In the case of multiple buyers of a home, each buyer must be a first-time home buyer having never owned a pri-

mary residence anywhere in the world. • You file a B.C. resident personal income tax return, or if you move to B.C. after Dec. 31, 2011, you file a 2012 B.C. resident personal income tax return. Individuals or families who move to B.C. after Dec. 31, 2012 will not be eligible. • You must be eligible for the B.C. HST New Housing Rebate. • No one else has claimed the bonus in respect of the home. Remember, new and old homes still require conveyancing services to ensure your real estate sale or purchase is legally complete. Contact your lawyer for details. For more information on this program, visit http://www.sbr.gov.bc.ca/individuals/Income_Taxes/Personal_Income_ Tax/tax_credits/fthb_bonus.htm or search the ministry website for “first-time buyers” and choose the first result among the search results. Enjoy your new home.

Shin, who just completed his junior year at New Mexico State University, rallied from three shots down late in the final round and beat American Jordan Russell in a three-hole aggregate playoff. Shin fired the day’s best final round, a four-under-65 at Wannamoisset Country Club in Rumford, R.I., and finished the 72-hole event at

CN Miracle Match Champion Child

In conjunction with the CN Canadian Women’s Open and the CN Miracle Match, each year a child Champion is selected as an ambassador for the event. This year CN and BC Children’s Hospital are pleased to have Natasha Feuchuk as the CN Miracle Match Champion Child.

Natasha Feuchuk is a bright, vibrant 15 year old young girl who likes swimming, hip hop, skating and has a flair for the dramatic arts. But being a vivacious young girl wasn’t always the case for Natasha. At 6 days old Natasha was diagnosed with truncus arteriosus type II, a rare complex birth defect of the heart. At

Raising much needed funds

The 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open will help to raise money for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, the official charitable beneficiary of the CN Miracle Match campaign in 2012. CN announced the official launch of the 2012 CN Miracle Match fundraising campaign. Individuals and corporations looking to support the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation can visit www.canadianwomensopen. com to make their donation. Claude Mongeau, President and Chief Executive Officer of CN, said: “At CN, we are committed to being involved in the communities we serve and making a difference. One of our major priorities is the well-being of our

10 weeks old Natasha had her first heart surgery, and this successful repair lasted for nine years.

Natasha was in grade three when she started getting tired easily, and had chest pains. Although she was healthy, this tiredness and pain were signs that she had outgrown her heart repair, and needed surgery to put in a larger conduit and valve. As expected, Natasha was concerned, so she had a talk with her clinical nurse, Mandy at Children’s hospital. After Mandy explained what would happen during surgery, she gave Natasha a “Heart and

Soul” binder which explained all about the procedure and what to expect. This gave her confidence and reassured her. Natasha and her family were able to tour the intensive care unit (ICU) and cardiac ward ahead of time allowing her to be more comfortable about being in the hospital.

Today Natasha is a healthy happy 15 year old thanks to the wonderful care of the staff at BC Children’s Hospital and the strong support of her friends and particularly her family who have been with her every step of the way. Natasha will need another surgery in several years (likely in her mid to late 20’s). In the meantime she is enjoying all the things teenagers enjoy.

On July 4, 2006 a very nervous Natasha was scheduled for the second open heart surgery of her young life. The surgery took over seven hours and was a success. Natasha spent two days in the ICU unit of Children’s Hospital and after four more days in the Cardiac Ward was allowed to go home. Natasha had to follow a difficult rehab process which she did and through the help of the talented physiotherapists at BC Children’s Hospital who tried to make the exercises fun; her rehabilitation process went smoothly.

Natasha is delighted to be the CN Miracle Match Champion Child and participate in this program, which will raise much needed funds for all the children of British Columbia. !

youth, and we are extremely proud of the support that has been provided to children’s hospitals across Canada since 2006 through to the CN Miracle Match campaign. This year, we are pleased to help the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation to continue dispensing essential pediatric care to children throughout British Columbia.” CN Miracle Match is a national charitable initiative designed to rally communities across Canada behind a very worthy cause, supporting children’s hospitals. Each year since 2006, CN and Golf Canada have raised funds to support children’s hospitals in the CN Canadian Women’s Open host cities by matching funds raised through various initiatives that are connected with the championship. In the past six years, the CN Miracle Match program has raised nearly $6.5 million for children’s hospitals. !

Throughout the entire process Natasha was supported by her loving family including her parents Danny and Tessa Feuchuk and her two older brothers Erik and Errol.

CN and Golf Canada are pleased to announce that five pastchampionshaveconfirmed their intention to challenge for the US$2.0 million purse at the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open being held August 20-26 at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam, BC.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The main accent lies on home, children, security, nutrition, garden and retirement. You might receive a “love call” – perhaps from someone who lives at a distance. Get out your charm and woo someone, or let it go until October brings new prospects. Sunday/Monday are mellow, wise, loving – though Monday afternoon could bring a bit of temper or a work-related difficulty: go slow. Tuesday/Wednesday ask: are you ambitious enough? Answer no Tuesday, yes Wednesday. This night, and Thursday/Friday, bring success, friends and wish fulfillment. Retreat, rest Saturday: don’t push anyone. Taurus April 20-May 20: The focus is on communications, travel, siblings and casual friends, details, errands and paperwork. In practical areas this is not an important time, but it holds some moral and human themes, as your ideas, life philosophy and relationships can be affected by what you say and write. (You don’t have to worry immediately about the practical, as earnings and possessions face growing luck here to mid-2013.) Changes – and perhaps sorrow or anger about a recent change – arrive Sunday/Monday. Monday eve brings a mellow, loving mood, to Wednesday. This night to Friday rewards ambition. Gemini May 21-June 20: You face increasing personal luck over the next year. Since much of this luck depends on opportunities, go forth – explore a different nation, advertise, seek agreement, try to get others to join your project, meet new people, etc. Your cheerfulness is growing, and so is your appeal to others. Sunday/Monday bring exciting meetings, but also contain the seeds of friction. That “friction planet,” Mars, ends an 8-month pillaging of your home (and realty) scene Tuesday – from this day to late August, it heats up your romantic side. True love – or blowing hot and cold about it – looms.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy, charisma and clout are at a yearly high, Cancer. Start important projects, ask favours, see and be seen – your skills will impress others. (You’d be wise to wait until September onward to start any administrative, policy, management or government-related project, or anything touching on therapy or a “retreat.”) Tackle chores Sunday/Monday (even bbq’ing is a chore). Relationships, opportunities and exciting meetings arise midweek. Grab ‘em Tuesday before noon, or wisely let them go. Sex, finances, health and lifestyle are splendidly lucky Wednesday night onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, retreat, contemplate and plan (for late July onward). Romantic, creative and gambling notions arise Sunday/Monday, but you’d be smart to save your energy. Monday night to Wednesday eve bring chores and health concerns (light ones) – it would be a great interval for success at work and in practical matters, but those who commit big, lose. Stick to routine chores – get them cleaned up, it will be easy. Wednesday night to Friday eve brings exciting meetings, and good people – don’t fight them! Argument closes doors; diplomacy opens them. Saturday’s mysterious. Protect funds. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Wishes come true, Virgo. Maybe not big ones – that waits until mid-2013 to mid-2014. (But you’re closer every week.) Popularity, social delights, flirtations, fun and entertainment come. Monday eve to Wednesday, you might have to choose between a bevy of friends and one special love. If you can’t choose Monday eve before 8:45 p.m., don’t choose, leave it awhile. These days bring a surprise, but also beauty and deep “soul pleasure.” (Earlier, Sunday to Monday eve, be restful, attend to garden, kids.) Chores confront you Wednesday night to Friday: you’ll succeed: do big things.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Ambition is the order of the day, Libra – meet VIPs, parents and bosses. Show them what you can do, be eager for more responsibility. This decade, if you give superhuman effort to your ambitions, you will likely gain super rewards. But if you just chug along as usual, you can confront many career disruptions. This isn’t necessarily bad, as those “disruptions” could be love, children, a new home. Still, you have to make a choice. Sunday/Monday are friendly. Sink into home, kids, nature and rest Tuesday/Wednesday. Romance, winning luck, beauty Thursday/Friday. Chores, Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A sweet, mellow mood fills this week. Your investment and sexual luck keeps rising – still, remain cautious before September. This Sunday/Monday features income, money and spending. Be conservative, avoid work-related, machinery and similar purchases. Monday eve to Wednesday suppertime, communications, short trips, paperwork, details, coworker relations, casual acquaintances, all flow well. Head for home or hotel Wednesday eve, and stick with property, security, kids, gardening this eve through Friday – luck rides with you, despite a lack of results. Romance is palpable Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: For eight lovely weeks ahead, you will grow hopeful about romance, relationships, creative projects and children, Sage.You are being released from a recent mood or thread of negativity. A sort of quiet bad luck detaches and floats downstream, leaving a future filled with possibilities, especially in relationships, relocation, fame and business/life opportunities. That said, July nudges you to dive into the depths of life, finances, intimacy and your psyche. Inheritance, strong investments, debt reduction are possible. You shine Sunday. Midweek’s lucky. Home, Saturday.

July 1 - 7, 2012

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You might learn a secret this week that will, by mid-month, cause you to delay a project or plan, to not start again until earlymid-August. Or you might just experience delays or indecision mid-July to early August, and wonder why. Either way, delays arrive soon, so use this week and next to complete rather than begin. Bosses and authorities will display impatience for the next seven weeks: be diplomatic. You might end one career/job role, begin another. Though your work load expands hugely now to mid-2013, now this expansion’s “bad side” ebbs by half. Soon, money/work luck! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Work, all week. You’re wishful, optimistic Sunday/Monday. But retreat Monday eve to Wednesday – meditate, plan. Don’t push government agencies or head office: bide your time.Eight months of heightened sexual urges end now – on the good side, this makes you more receptive to real love – which is on its way, if you’re single, during the months ahead. The seven weeks ahead feature travel, learning, and possibly ethical or legal conflicts. (Avoid these conflicts; they contain possible loss, no reward.) Your energy, charm – and luck! – return midlate week. Money caution Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A romantic, creative, lucky, speculative trend continues. You see and feel beauty. You could fall in love (though prospects are better a year from now). For 8 months, relationships have flamed with intensity, good or bad; a monetary or sexual union might have developed, but (if so) it’s been a fiery one. Now this intensity shifts to your deeper, more private side for seven weeks. During this time, investments, funding, and the actual “production” of a partnership occurs. (Sexual production = pregnancy.) Take care that secret relationships don’t violate ethics. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
