Five-year anniversary

Family keeps sister’s memory alive Karen Beck’s siblings continue to raise awareness about domestic violence and resources available. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The day after Karen Beck was murdered in Maple Ridge by her husband, her family committed to never give up the fight against domestic violence. Five years later, they continue through an organization called Never Give Up to raise money, collect resources, and reach out to people who they think might be in trouble. And they continue to give their support to Cythera Transition House Society, where Karen Beck fled to.

“Karen is in our thoughts all the time,” said her brother Adam Frisch, who came with his sister Darlene Dorchak to Maple Ridge on Friday to talk about their sister and how they are trying to honour her memory. Over the past five years, the brother and sister have told their sister’s story wherever possible, and their mandate has evolved into “never miss an opportunity” – which might mean handing a card to strangers in Starbucks who sound like they’re having relationship problems. “When you see an opportunity, you have to step up,” Dorchak said. Karen made a commitment when she got married, a commitment to her marriage and to God, Dorchak said, and when she eventually left her husband, it was “traumatic” for her. “That equated to failure on her part,”

Frisch said. Karen’s husband was the “love of her life,” Dorchak said, and she was very strong to turn against that. That feeling of failure is a really common for women leaving marriages, said Cythera program director Heather Halliday, because when they marry it is a life-long commitment, often solidified by faith, belief, and culture. But that feeling of failure is also tied in with emotional abuse that they have suffered. “Really, it’s not their failure,” she said. Today (Nov. 15) marks five years since Karen was murdered by her husband who then committed suicide. “It’s unfortunate there are so many people who can say they’ve walked in those shoes,” Dorchak said.

Animosity between the CEED Centre in Haney and its immediate neighbours spilled into council chambers on Ernie Daykin Tuesday. Maple Ridge Mayor Tyler Ducharme, who lives next door to the CEED Centre, raised 19 questions about the non-profit at the council meeting, promising to email them to council before leaving the meeting. He asked about the District’s policy on squatting on District property, and housing people with communicable disease such as staph. He also wanted a definition of a drop-in centre, and wondered if someone is always at the CEED Centre during posted hours. Ducharme also asked about supervision of people staying on CEED Centre property, about uninsured vehicles, and whether it’s the centre’s responsibility to make sure people aren’t staying on the property. “The issue is clear, [it’s] the safety of my family,” he told The TIMES. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said he hasn’t had any complaints “in general” about the CEED Centre, and that any organization that engages volunteers and gets people involved in the community is a positive thing. But he said Ducharme seemed to have a “level of frustration.” “I guess he’s trying to prove a point,” Daykin said. Staff will endeavour to answer Ducharme’s questions, Daykin said. The CEED Centre’s executive director Christian Cowley said tents that have been set up have been off the CEED Centre property, and the centre has given the RCMP permission to remove anyone trespassing on the property.

Recovering hit and run A 51-year-old male cyclist was rushed to hospital after a hit-and-run in the 24100 block of Dewdney Trunk Road early Wednesday morning. Police are hunting for the driver who struck him from behind, then fled the scene at about 5:30 a.m. Nov. 14. The cyclist, who was wearing reflective clothing, a bike helmet, and a light, was travelling west at the time. He was knocked off his bike, and found on the ground on the roadside by a passerby. He suffered facial injuries, but they were not believed to be life threatening. In the meantime, Mounties are asking for witnesses to call 604-463-6251. • More at www.mrtimes.com

Diesel spilled in crash A section of Lougheed Highway in east Maple Ridge was shut down early Wednesday morning, following a crash involving a dump truck and car. Police reports indicate the crash occurred at about 6:30 a.m. in the 28700 block of Lougheed, with the car hitting the truck. No serious injuries were reported, but fire crews were on-hand for almost four hours, while diesel was offloaded from the truck. About 100 litres from a full 400-litre tank reportedly spilled in the crash.

Girl takes stand against ‘r’ word

A 14-year-old is trying to put an end to a word she feels is hurtful, especially to people with special needs. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Not all offensive words are packaged in four letters. There’s a six-letter term, the “r” word, too often used in reference to people with a developmental disability, that offends 14-year-old Summer Brack and her family. “There’s lots of words that are hurtful to people, but this is one of them that is to us,” Summer’s dad Kelly said. For her 15-year-old brother Colton, who has Down syndrome, Summer posted a video on YouTube, the popular video sharing website. Using written messages on pieces of paper, Summer created the 3:38 long video “Spread the word to end the word. Summer.” “I started it Saturday morning, I started writing the papers, but I didn’t do any rough drafts, I just kind of did it,” Summer recalled. “It took maybe two hours to do all of it.” As of Wednesday morning, the video had close to 750 views. Summer took this bold step because she’s passionate about eradicating the “r” word from the vocabulary. “This past year of school has been really bad for the ‘r’ word,” said Summer, a Grade 9 student at Garibaldi Secondary. “Every day it’s like constantly, and it seems to be getting worse.” The “r” word also impacts Garibaldi principal Grant Frend whose son Brady, a kindergartner at Alexander Robinson Elementary, has cerebral palsy and intellectual and physical challenges. “So this is a matter near and dear to my heart, as well,” Frend said. Frend saw Summer’s video on Saturday and communicated with her via Twitter. Frend was to meet with Summer to discuss plans for a Spread the Word Day at Garibaldi. TIMES columnist Tim Tyler, whose son has Down syndrome, said the “r” word has gone out of use since the 1950s and 60s.

Mom Liz says the “r” word remains ubiquitous, especially in the realm of pop culture. “It’s still used in media quite a bit and in comedies, and people use it as a slang term,” she said. “There are lots of words in history that are obviously inappropriate and over time they were taken out of the language once people spoke up and said, ‘You shouldn’t use that word.’” Liz says it’s not easy to stand up and say that the “r” word is inappropriate. “So I’m really proud of Summer being that 14 is a tough age, already, but to speak up and to say something,” Liz said. Colton is going through his Grade 10 year at Garibaldi and loves horseback riding, but isn’t much into sports. He’s a movie buff who loves spending time with his dad.

Cat owners balk at bylaw READERS’ CHOICE Council dealt with its

animal control bylaw at Tuesday’s meeting. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge council is looking at tweaking its animal control bylaw, which would allow for Savannah cats, but not undomesticated serval cats to be kept as pets. Serval cats are not listed as in the International Cat Association, but Savannah cats are, therefore the latter are allowed as part of the “domestic cat” category. Several people came to Maple Ridge’s Tuesday evening council meeting to speak about allowing Savannah and serval cats, and they were allowed to ask questions during ques-

Kelly Allen brought her serval cat Duma to the Maple Ridge council meeting on Tuesday. tion period. Kelly Allen brought her serval cat Duma to the meeting as well. Servals are allowed if owners can prove they are domesticated.

“[I’m] not sure what the test of that is,” said Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin. The animal control bylaw will come back for final reading at a future council meeting. Coun. Cheryl Ashlie said she wanted the bylaw to go through at this point, but questioned why dogs weren’t allowed in certain areas, for example, on playgrounds, pointing out that it’s a common sight to see a mother pushing a stroller and walking the family dog. Often the family dog is a part of the family. “I’m wondering if this is going too far,” she said, adding it might be “stomping on” something families are doing with their dog. Ashlie suggested that the bylaw be reviewed after a year to see if the dog restrictions are working.

MAXIMUM MONEY for “PAIN AND SUFFERING” from ACCIDENT

She was hit in three separate accidents. And – in probably the largest similar court award ever made in Canada – a Vancouver jury initially gave her over $12 million. Part of that was $6.5 million for “non-pecuniary compensation” (legal short-hand for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life). Too much money? You’re right if you agree. In the attention-grabbing case, the BC Court of Appeal revisited when the maximum judgment can be awarded for pain and suffering. The plaintiff (let’s call her “Joan”) was hurt in three different accidents over a 15-month period, where she was not at fault. She suffered soft tissue injuries to her neck and, after the accidents, experienced continual upper body pain and depression and was unable to function effectively in the business she and her husband owned. Before the car accidents, Joan had been injured in an accident at the PNE, which caused a mild concussion, and she later had surgery after a disc herniation was found. This raised the question of how much of her situation was due to the car accidents rather than her pre-existing condition. But she testified that she felt her condition was improving before the car accidents (and compensation can still be given if a subsequent accident aggravates a pre-existing condition). At trial, the judge told the Vancouver jury that Canada has an upper limit or cap on the compensation that can be given for pain and suffering. Asked by the judge if they meant to award that top amount, the jury said yes and cut this part of its award to the maximum allowed. The trial judge determined this figure to be roughly $327,000. Adjusted for inflation, this is the equivalent of the $100,000 maximum amount for pain and suffering fixed by the Supreme Court of Canada in

1978. The defendants appealed what they viewed as a still-excessive court award totalling over $6 million, and asked for a new trial. The BC Court of Appeal agreed there should be a new trial for several reasons. One reason related to the amount for pain and suffering. The appeal court pointed out that the maximum award of some $327,000 is only for cases of “truly catastrophic injury,” which the plaintiff Joan admittedly hadn’t endured. When the Supreme Court of Canada fixed this cap in 1978, it dealt with three very serious injury cases – a 17-year old with a neck injury resulting in loss of use of all limbs, a 21-year old quadriplegic and a four-year old with serious brain damage and debilitating physical injuries. The court there, noting that no money can provide true compensation, explained that the pain and suffering award is meant to help make the victim’s life more endurable (rather than express sympathy). Also, a cap would help prevent runaway insurance premiums in Canada. If awards were too high, reasoned the court, no one but the very rich could own a car and pay the huge premiums that insurance companies would have to charge to pay out on claims. Of course, an innocent victim hurt in a car accident may be entitled to other types of compensation too, e.g., for medical expenses, income loss, future care and lost earning capacity. If you have the misfortune of being injured, consult a lawyer who can help you with recovering the fair compensation that may be your due.

It’s been shown that communities are stronger and healthier and better in crisis situations when people reach out to help, they can volunteers, when children and youth have caring adults in their lives, and people have caring relationships, and when there is a sense of trust in the neighbourhood, Kipps said.

Stories of struggle and personal challenge, but also of joy were shared on Tuesday evening at a story-sharing contest recognition evening. Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Community Services put on the contest, sponsored by The TIMES, to let people tell them about their personal experiences, either good or bad. After the recognition event at municipal hall, the five people whose stories were chosen were recognized by Maple Ridge council during their regular meeting. The stories were of “courage, generosity, inspiration, and reflection... that show us how positive, strong, and resilient our community is,” said community services executive director Vicki Kipps When people ask what community services does, Kipps says “We help people.” That’s the “core purpose” of the organization that offers services to 7,000 people, including children, youth, families, and seniors, in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, she told Maple Ridge council. Community services is funded with both provincial and federal money, but they also get gaming money, and money from the United Way, service clubs, and community foundations, as well as through private donations and fundraising. The organization is dedicated to helping people because “it all come down to positive relationships, healthy people, interacting and helping each other, ultimately building stronger communities,” Kipps told council in her presentation.

One book for all Whonnockians For the second year, east Maple Ridge residents are invited to read the same novel.

Cathy Ace’s (left) novel has been chosen for the One Book Whonnock project this year. Jean Davidson is coordinating the project.

by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The second book chosen for One Book Whonnock features a Whonnockian author – Cathy Ace’s mystery novel The Corpse with the Silver Tongue is the book that those living in east Maple Ridge will be reading and discussing into the spring. Last year, Joy Kogawa’s novel Obasan was chosen as the first One Book Whonnock selection, said the project’s coordinator Jean Davidson. Davidson said the books chosen should have a connection with Whonnock, and last year’s selection reflected the history of Whonnock, which had many Japanese people living in it before Second World War. The One Book Whonnock event is scheduled for Feb. 28 when those who are participating can meet to discuss the book. It will also feature a combination of Welsh and Nicois treats – the book’s protagonist is WelshCanadian and the book is set in Nice, on the French Riviera. Davidson said she hopes in the middle of what is usually dreary February weather, people can “immerse themselves in the sunny Riviera.” One Book Whonnock is partly about community building in east Maple Ridge, Davidson said, and people who live, work, go to school, or worship in Thornhill, Whonnock, and Ruskin are all invited to join. Davidson is hoping the project will inspire those who live in the area to gather with their neighbours or talk over their fences about the book. “It’s difficult to develop community in a place where everyone lives

W behind fences and gates,” Davidson said about the rural area of east Maple Ridge. Books chosen for the project have to have a connection to the area, must be well written, with accessible language, and appropriate for the community, Davidson said. Having her book chosen for One Book Whonnock is “a real honour,” Ace said, “I’m beside myself with glee.” She likes the fact the community is coming together for a positive reason, not a partisan reason, Ace said. “So often people come together because they’re annoyed about something,” she said. Ace said her novel’s characters are “sufficiently universal” and the story isn’t heavy. Many people enjoy a mystery novel, having grown up with the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, and other mysteries, she said. The Corpse with the Silver Tongue

is available at the Haney Place Mall location of Black Bond Books, at the Maple Ridge Library, and online where e-books are sold. Black Bond Books is offering a 10-per-cent discount for people who are taking part in One Book Whonnock. Ace will be making a presention at the Golden Ears Writers Club on Mystery Writing: From plotting to publishing. This takes place on Tuesday, Nov. 20 in the lobby of The ACT from 7 to 9 p.m. She will also have a book signing at Black Bond Books on Nov. 29 from 4 to 8 p.m. Ace has written the second book in her series, The Corpse with the Golden Nose, and it will be published on March 9.

Participating in the challenge is Ralph DeAdder, an advertising consultant for the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Times newspaper and very busy father of two who even with a very limited schedule, has decided to take his health into his own hands.

added some cardio based supersets to once again increase his heart rate and caloric expenditure. We were very pleased to see that though Ralph found the exercises more difficult, he was not only able to do them all, but his rate of recovery had improved. Even though the work week was a short one demanding quicker deadlines and more pressure and stress at work, Ralph was pleased that he was able to keep his routine at the gym because of his appointments to see his personal trainer. He was also happy with the fact that having a trainer with him througheachsessionpushed him to not only get through each exercise completing all sets and repetitions, but also to ensure that the rests between were the correct length of time, all resulting in him leaving the gym and the workout feeling successful.

Though the week started off with Thanksgiving holiday, Ralph would not be deterred from his progress and started off the week with a training session: a great way to start off the day. Being two weeks in to the program, this was Ralph’s first weigh in and measurements since our initial one.

Our View

Help needed! Cancer is everywhere, but many Canadians still don’t know a lot about the day-to-day challenges faced by people diagnosed with the disease. We might fundraise and read about cancer research, but if we try to imagine what it would actually be like to be diagnosed, fear stops us in our tracks. “You have cancer.” How terrible it would be to hear you have a disease that is expected to kill 75,700 Canadians in 2012, according to the Canadian Cancer Society. Just the thought is enough to make us want to curl up into ball on the floor and never get up. But people who hear those words for real don’t have that luxury. For them, the fear is just the beginning. From that moment on, and with little time to reflect, they’re expected to work through an avalanche of new information, make life-and-death decisions and find some way to make the rest of their lives – work, parenting, school – stop long enough for them to get better. But life doesn’t stop – especially for those who don’t have a lot of money. Too sick to work? The bills keep coming. Government programs we’ve paid into all our lives aren’t always enough to cover them, according to a Canadian Cancer Action Network report this month. So some drag themselves to work before they’re ready and others become dependent on welfare for the rest of their lives, because they’ve had to spend all their savings and sell their homes before qualifying for social assistance. The CCAN report calls on federal and provincial governments to improve supports for these people – if not for the humanity, then for the longterm bottom line. All that money we’ve raised for cancer research hasn’t been in vain; more people with cancer are living longer all the time. Letting them fall through our social safety net to save money in the short term is shortsighted and inhuman. It’s time for our local politicians to step up and work to extend government supports, so people with cancer don’t have to worry about being financially gutted once their treatment is done.

TransLink

Technology fails fare policy

Dear Editor, I recently used B.C. transit while my family was visiting, to go to the BC Lions game. We travelled from Maple Ridge to BC Place stadium. I have heard that you need exact change, so we figured out what the cost would be. It was $20 even, so off we went. To our surprise, the driver could not take bills, so we rode for free. That actually makes me sick, as one week prior, my son and his friend were denied access to the bus because they didn’t have exact change. Twelve years old, they were stuck in Port Coquitlam, and live in Maple Ridge. I had to go and pick them up. I was not impressed. I’m shocked. All we ever hear is how hard-done-by TransLink is, and how it isn’t making enough money, blah blah blah!

They need the technology to accept money, if they expect to make money. I live in an area where there is no access to transit, so I have never been a fan of it, as it is not accessible to all citizens, particularly those who really need it. If you live near town, you don’t need transit as much as those who do not live near town, yet we only cover those who live close to town. Now I hear that the park-and-ride lots will be charged for parking. Talk about deterring everyone from taking transit or carpooling. If you want to make transit work efficiently, start with accepting money from people who actually want to pay. And if you can’t deny access to people without exact change, don’t pick and choose who you will let on and who you will leave crying on the sidewalk. Carly Marchand-Jones, Maple Ridge

Foreign investment

FIPA gives businesses confidence

Dear Editor, Our Conservative government is committed to creating the right conditions for Canadian businesses to compete globally. Canada’s Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) with China, the world’s second largest economy, will provide stronger protection for Canadians investing in China and create jobs and economic growth at home. It establishes a clear set of rules for investments, and to resolve disputes. Canadian businesses looking to set up in China can’t be treated less favourably than any other foreign company, under the agreement. Once an investment is made, a Canadian business cannot be treated less favourably than any other business, including Chinese. The agreement protects investors against government expropriation, except under strict conditions,

and then only with fair compensation. The FIPA also ensures all investment disputes are resolved under international arbitration, ensuring that adjudications are independent and fair. Canadian investors in China will no longer have to rely on the Chinese legal system to resolve disputes. Ours is the first bilateral investment agreement that China has signed which expressly includes language on transparency of dispute settlement proceedings. It is Canada’s long-standing policy that all dispute resolution should be open to the public and that the submissions by the parties be made available to the public. Any decision emanating from dispute resolution would be made public. The agreement does not restrict Canada’s ability to regulate and legislate in areas such as the environment, culture, safety, health, and conservation.

Here and There

Political jabs off message

Dear Editor, Alan Woodland’s column [One person can bring an end to ‘them and us’, Nov. 8 Here and There, TIMES] had a lovely start explaining the word for Cantonese corn is umi, which sounds like youme. He goes on to say, “I know that the world would be a kinder, gentler world if we emphasized words that connected rather than divided.” So true. Then, paradoxically, he describes half the electorate of the United States with phrases like “the bellicose strutting of the Republicans,” “the might of the right wished his (Obama’s) destruction,” and their “raucous posturing.” Yes, one person can bring an end to them and us. He should keep to writing his lovely, descriptive stories, and omit the politicizing that creates an atmosphere of them and us. Cherryl Katnich, Maple Ridge

Bullying

Uninvited mother cuts votes

Dear Editor, Unbelievable! Amanda Todd’s mother Carol was not permitted to attend the anti-bullying summit because she wasn’t “invited.” Yet Premier Christy Clark felt compelled to mention her daughter by name. Here’s what I think: I think Carol wasn’t invited to participate because she would upstage our un-elected premier, and when you’re trolling for votes, you can’t have that. Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

Restrictions will preserve Canada’s current ability to review foreign investments under the Investment Canada Act and that our national security is not compromised. Under this treaty, Chinese investors in Canada must obey all of the laws and regulations of Canada, just as any Canadian must. In short, the CanadaChina FIPA is similar to the 24 other investment treaties Canada has signed with key trade and investment partners. We join countries such as New Zealand, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Japan, who have all signed similar or less favourable investment treaties with China. Our government has brought greater transparency to the treaty review process. Under the previous Liberal government, there was no formal treaty-tabling policy. Our government in 2008 introduced a formal policy that requires international treaties, before they are ratified, to be tabled in the House for 21 sitting days, during which MPs and the public have an opportunity to review the treaty. The Canada-China FIPA was tabled on Sept. 26, prior to its formal ratification. Since then, opposition parties have been given four “opposition days” to debate issues of their own choosing. Curiously, the NDP and Liberal Party have chosen not to do so. We’ve been clear with the Chinese government that Canada wants to continue to expand its commercial relationship with China, but only in a way that produces clear benefits for both sides. By establishing clear rules with greater protection against discriminatory and arbitrary practices, this FIPA will allow Canadians to invest in China with greater confidence.

Remembrance Day

Whonnockians remember those who served An “informal and respectful” gathering took place in east Maple Ridge. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The Remembrance Day gathering in Whonnock increased at least four-fold this year over last. With two cairns located in front of the centre, the Whonnock Community Association always lays two wreaths on Remembrance Day. Last year, there were three people remembering the fallen. This year there were about a dozen including a family with their children. Stan Lovatt laid a wreath to remember those who fought in the First World War. Jan DeZeeuw laid one to remember those who fought in the Second World War and the Korean

War. After the laying of the wreaths, someone requested that In Flanders Fields be recited, which the group did. And after the poem, those who had gathered to remember sang O Canada! Jean Davidson, who lives in the area, took part in the Whonnock Remembrance Day ceremony, and said coming together with people who live near you helps forge community identity. “That can be meaningful,” she said. Last year, she wasn’t aware that wreaths were being laid, she said. She described this year’s gathering as “informal and respectful.” The gathering also sparked a conversation that Davidson felt was important to have on Remembrance Day, a conversation that might not have happened with a lar-

Crime prevention

Program protects Pitt shops

Businesses are urged to join a program to fight crime in Pitt Meadows.

If you plan on doing any criminal activities in Pitt Meadows, know this: they’ll be watching you. Constables from the Pitt Meadows community police office are visiting Pitt Meadows businesses to introduce and encourage owners to register for the new Business Watch program. Once the Pitt Meadows community police office receives the completed Business Watch registration form from the business, merchants will be provided with a Business Watch decal. The decal should be displayed on each business’ front door to indicate that it is located within a Business Watch area. The Business Watch program provides a direct opportunity for the RCMP and Pitt Meadows businesses to work together to reduce crime and increase safety through prevention, sharing of information, and education. Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters applauded the initiative.

Meet Gail.

Gail loves hot showers. And a great cup of coffee. She enjoys keeping her family safe and warm while using energy wisely.

We help Gail, and 1.1 million other customers, do these things and more. From natural gas and electricity, to district energy and geoexchange, we deliver the energy services you need every day.

Meet Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters, Tourism executive director Kristina Gervais, Pitt Meadows economic development administrative assistance Janay Legge, and RCMP constables Krista Doncaster and Matt Condon are promoting the Business Watch program. “We all want Pitt Meadows to remain a safe community,” Walters said. “The Business Watch program is a step in the right direction.” Some of the benefits include the distribution of crime prevention material and tools, individual business problem solving, and an electronic newsletter for the business community detailing recent crime and issues affecting business. Available upon request are free training to owners and employees on safety, security, and businessrelated crime, and a free security assessment for Pitt Meadows businesses.

In the near future, the RCMP will have the ability to distribute crime alerts to businesses registered in the program. Ridge Meadows RCMP are encouraging all businesses in Pitt Meadows to take an active part in the new Business Watch program. “We cannot keep the community safe on our own,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Sput. Dave Walsh. “Community safety is a shared responsibility,” To learn more about the program, contact the Pitt Meadows community police office at 604-4652402.

Christmas giving

Angelic program underway

‘Adopting’ a little angel from a tree at the local Envision branch will go a long way in brightening someone’s Christmas season.

pittmeadows

Little paper angels hanging off trees at Envision Financial branches across the Lower Mainland – including the Ridge Meadows locaion, at 20133 Lougheed Hwy. – represent a person who could use some Christmas cheer this holiday season. Envision Financial, in partnership with the TIMES sister paper, the Langley Advance, is launching the Angel Tree program for a third consecutive year. All Envision Financial locations will display a decorated Christmas tree with angel ornaments, each representing a child, youth, or senior in the local community. People are encouraged to take an angel from a tree and return it with a new and unwrapped gift to any participating location by Dec. 8. All gifts and/or cash donations collected will be delivered to a local non-profit agency or Christmas bureau. While the Ridge Meadows Envision

location’s tree isn’t up yet, visitors are encouraged to visit the branch and take an angel. The local branch’s hours are Monday to Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call Ridge Meadows Envision at 604-539-5925. In addition to selecting an angel off each tree, starting this year, people also have the option of selecting a tin can ornament off the tree, and returning it with a non-perishable food item or cash donation. “The statistics really speak to the need for this program,” Envision Financial manager of corporate citizenship Susan Byrom said. “One in five children in B.C. live under the poverty line and this year alone, B.C. food banks served over 28,000 kids. That’s why we are so proud of our Angel Tree Program.” This year, Envision has created a video to share the message of the Angel Tree program which can be viewed at www. youtube.com/envisionfinancial. For every view, Envision will donate $1 to the Angel Tree program (up to $10,000) which will then be distributed to the program’s community partners.

T

he news today moves fast. When a major news event happens, social media is usually one of the first places where people learn about it. People at the scene tweet or post photos of events that are then shared and re-tweeted. Commentary ensues, and anyone can join in the conversation. Big TV events such as elections, the Superbowl, Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement, and similar popular events tend to spur a spike in social media, particularly on Twitter. The record for the most tweets per second, (or TPS) was during Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement at the MTV VMAs, at 8,860 TPS. Other big news events that saw a lot of Twitter traffic included Steve Jobs’ death at 6,049 TPS, Bin Laden’s death at 5,106 TPS, the day of the Japanese earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011 at 5,530 TPS, and the Royal Wedding in England in April 2011 at 3,966 TPS. Last week, when Obama won the U.S. presidential election, the event spurred 327,000 TPS at its peak. If you are a business using social media, how do you keep up? The important thing is to not be too focused on capitalizing on major events in order to get online exposure. In fact, that can often result in a major public relations misstep. Last year, during the unrest in Egypt, the clothing brand Kenneth Cole tweeted, “Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online.” Ouch. When marketers try to capitalize on hot news topics, called “newsjacking,” it can go awry. Build a loyal community of followers and they will promote you. You won’t have to worry about trying to get in on the hot topics to get noticed. Social media is all about trust, and if your business is coming across as disingenuous, it reflects badly on your brand. Share what’s going on in your business, in real time. Snap a photo of a special visitor, an event, or a new product and share it with your followers. People like to feel they are part of the latest news, so let them. If something is a hot topic and it’s related to your business or industry, share it, tweet about it, and comment on it. There’s nothing wrong with being relevant, just don’t use the opportunity as a marketing ploy. Remember to share the love! Sharing and re-tweet-

Business happenings

Five bucks goes a long way

One in four of us is reported to have diabetes or prediabetes, and it is estimated that will escalate to one in three by 2020. Might be worth a visit.

Chamber hosts summit

Sylver Scoop

D

by Sylver McLaren

eals and more deals are available at the third annual A Night of Festive Shopping to Support Local Kids, which is set to take place tonight (Nov. 15) from 5 to 9 p.m. For $5 you’ll get access to festive deals at businesses all over Downtown Maple Ridge, plus you can enter to win shopping sprees, gift baskets, and gift certificates. To see what five bucks will get you, look at the two-page BIA spread in The TIMES on Nov. 13, or visit http://downtownmapleridge.ca. Proceeds from ticket sales go to local non-profits that benefit kids and youth in this community. Call 604-467-2420 for ticket locations.

Stores spotlight diabetes

N

ovember is Diabetes Awareness Month and at least two local grocery stores are taking part – Pitt Meadows’ Real Canadian Superstore in Meadowtown Centre and the Extra Foods at 224th Street in Maple Ridge. Following on the heels of some diabetesfriendly cooking classes held at Superstore yesterday (Nov. 14), both that store and its Loblaw affiliate Extra Foods, are offering diabetes-risk assessments and giving out information on the topic of blood-glucose monitoring throughout November.

R

idge Meadows Chamber of Commerce is hosting a business summit and trade show at Meadow Garden Golf Club on Nov. 22 from 3 to 9 p.m. The event cost is $10, which allows guests to visit the booths as well as hear experts speak on topics such as succession planning, HST to PST transitions, franchising, social media, and financing. To find out more about booth space or speaking opportunities contact Jesse at 604-463-3366 or email jesse@ridgemeadowschamber.com.

Mobile licences get moving

D

istrict of Maple Ridge and City of Pitt Meadows are two of nine communities that have joined the mobile licence program. Each community has agreed to implement a one-year, inter-municipal, business-licence pilot – which will make it easier for businesses to operate in those communities. The other communities involved are Surrey, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, Hope, and both Langley Township and Langley City. The Mobile Business Licence (MBL), also referred to as an inter-municipal business licence, reduces red tape as it allows mobile businesses to operate in more than one municipality by purchasing one licence, rather than by obtaining nonresident permits in each municipality in which they operate. Info: www.resourcecentre.gov.bc.ca/mobile.html.

Composting

Wild Birds Unlimited

Plants feed plants

A

bout now, compost collections are growing faster than anything else in the garden. All those spent annuals, fallen leaves, and vegetable and fruit scraps are ready to be recycled into rich plant food. How you choose to compost them can involve a rich assortment of choices. City gardens need critterproof compost bins. Rats and skunks see fresh compost as a warm condo plus free lunch. Plastic bins in which you add compostible stuff at the top and later remove finished compost from a door at the base are about as critter-proof as compost bins can be. They usually have a perforated floor set on earth, so worms and other soil dwellers can help the composting process. The wooden box bin, often home-made, can have a lid and be lined with wire mesh to stop small animals. Any vegetable garden can have a temporary chicken-wire

surround for fallen leaves to decompose over the winter. Kitchen scraps can be dug into the vegetable garden. One of the best methods is dumping one compost bucket at a time in one small part of a trench and covering that bit with soil immediately. Other composting methods include: rotating bins, tumbling bins, spreading vegetable and weeds on paths within a vegetable patch, and the “heap” method (best for rural dwellers, it is simply layering compostibles in a heap in a secluded corner). Composting rules can be tweaked, depending on garden

needs and conditions, but the basic method is always the same: alternating layers of green waste with brown. Green waste includes veggie and fruit scraps, non-seeded weeds, coffee grounds/tea bags, and grass clippings. Brown waste includes leaves, dried stems (including pea and bean vines), and straw. Try to get straw that has few or no seeds. Eggshells can go in the compost if they’ve been dried and crushed. Things that get you into trouble include: pet poop, cooked food, meat, bones, badly diseased leaves, roots of invasive plants, and anything that’s been subjected to herbicide. Some things, like corn cobs, break down reluctantly, but chopping them up can hasten the process.

Onions

No need for tears

I

am often asked how I prevent crying when cutting onions? No one enjoys the eyeburning sensation followed by what seems to be an emotional breakdown. Watery eyes are caused by a gas released from the onion. It reacts with tears and turns into a mild form of sulfuric acid, making our eyes water more to flush away the irritant. I’ve heard ways to prevent the reaction, some more effective than others. I’ve heard that burning a candle near the cutting board will burn off the gases – but I find the tender glow from the candle just makes you look more romantic while crying. I also heard that holding a spoon between your teeth, or a slice of bread hanging out of your mouth will eliminate tears. The theory was that the metal spoon reacts chemically with the gas to disperse it, while the bread simply soaks up the gases. We brought up those theories during a cooking class one evening, and a man claiming to be a

Hard to smile?

scientist explained that it isn’t what you are holding between your teeth that matters: just the fact that you are biting onto something alters your breathing pattern, and you tend to inhale/exhale through your mouth more, helping keep the gases from your eyes. I tried it many times, with a variety of objects hanging out of my mouth (yes, my wife still thinks I’m handsome), and it does work… but not 100 per cent. There is a rumour among chefs that cutting onions in a certain way limits the fumes released. However, I have yet to discern the technique, and I highly doubt this theory anyway. A best bet is refrigerating your onion an hour or two before cutting it. Warm gas rises, cold gas doesn’t. The fumes stay nearer the cutting surface, and further from your eyes. Cutting onions near the overhead fan of your stovetop is also an option, as long as it is powerful enough to suck the fumes in away from your eyes. Using a summer fan on a

stand, positioned to blow in the opposite direction of where you are standing at the cutting board is also ideal. Even better is a mini-sized fan that sits on the counter for these tearful chopping moments. Finally, I want to tell you about the method that I use more often than the others: onion goggles specifically made to keep the harmful vapours away from your eyes. They can be purchased from any specialty food or kitchenware stores or online. They have a foam backing on them and they sit on your face like glasses, better than swimming goggles or ski masks. I have cut many an onion with this invention, and since they come in an array of colours, too, not only will your eyes and cheeks stay dry, but you will also look stylish.

Literacy

Taste of Indian culture offered with Diwali celebrations On The Page

W

by Minakshi Sidhu

hile preparing for the upcoming Diwali celebrations in the library these past weeks, I have been thinking about all the great Indian movies we have in our collection. Indian movies always have a special flavour all their own, but even outsiders to India’s intriguing culture can relate to

their storylines and themes. Here are a few of my favourites, all of which are subtitled in English: Based on the novel Five Point Someone: What not to do at IIT, the 2009 comedy drama 3 Idiots is the highest grossing Bollywood film to date. It is the story of three engineering students, one of them an uncontrollable free thinker who touches and changes the lives of those around him. The story focuses on his non-traditional learning methods and his clashes with his domineering mentor. This is an entertaining tale about friendship and following your dreams. Aastha: In the Prison of Spring has attracted attention since its release in 1997 for explicit love scenes and adult themes. One day, while shopping for shoes for her daughter, Mansi realizes that she doesn’t have the money to pay her bill.

She reluctantly accepts another customer’s offer to pay, not realizing that the customer has a secret agenda that will change Mani’s life forever. The 1995 Mani Ratnam film, Bombay – which won many international awards and also critical attention – tells the story of Shekhar, a journalist and the son of a traditional Hindu father, and Shaila, a Muslim girl from the village. Shekhar and Shaila marry and raise their children in both religions, but while their families learn to accept their union and to love their children, their lives play out against a backdrop of Hindu/Muslim riots that devastate Bombay. As part of our ongoing World Films series, the library is showing the Oscarnominated 2001 film Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India over two Tuesdays in November. If you missed the first part of Lagaan last Tuesday night, a quick recap

will bring you up to date for the second half on Tuesday, Nov, 20, at 6 p.m. And don’t forget to visit to the library on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 1 p.m. for Diwali – the Festival of Light, one of the most poignant and colourful celebrations. The library is collaborating with Ridge Meadows South Asian Cultural Society and the Family Education and Support Centre. And, as is customary for Diwali, there will be entertainment, food, and lots of fun. Later in the month, the library’s lineup of Christmas programming for all ages will begin on Nov. 28, at 3:30 p.m., with the family Christmas movie Elf. The fun will continue with Night Time Tales: Christmas Countdown on Dec. 4, Adult Evening Christmas on Dec. 11 and Posada on Dec. 13.

Maggie Coles-Lyster led the charge at the Burnaby Velodrome’s Superior Glass Track Classic.

Cyclist shines Maple Ridge cycling star Maggie Coles-Lyster, of the Maple Ridge-based Local Ride/Dr. Vie Superfoods+ team, racked up even more race wins last weekend at the Superior Glass Track Classic held at the Burnaby Velodrome. “I had so much fun,” said the 13-year-old rider, who contested 10 individual track cycling races in a three-day span. Of the 10 races, Coles-Lyster won four and snagged two second-place and two third-place placings, to boot. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

Times do change It has occurred to me after reading a recent article on rodmaking legend Glen Brackett; that the skill of rod home making and repair is becoming a lost art. When I was taught how to repair rods as a kid back in the mid 1960s, it was more of a necessity than an option.

Junior B hockey

Flames look to add heat to attack The local junior B squad will look to climb past .500 when it plays back-to-back games tonight and Friday. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

The good news is the Ridge Meadows Flames are more than halfway towards their win total from last season. The bad news: the junior B Flames finished with an 1132-0-1 mark at the end of the 2011/12 campaign. This year, the team is hovering just below the .500 mark, at 6-7-1-2, and sits third behind Aldergrove (9-9-0-1) and first-place Abbotsford (115-0-2) in the Pacific Junior Hockey League Harold Brittain Conference standings. The Flames have been doing a decent job of keeping the puck out of their own net, with the fourth-best goals against total in the 10-team PJHL. The Flames have allowed 63 goals in 16 games, averaging a shade under four goals per contest. But they also have the second-worst offence in the league, with 49 goals scored. “It’s a concern but it’s not a major concern,” Flames’ head Doug Abbott/PIJHL photographer coach and general manager Jamie Fiset said. “We have the Ridge Meadows Flames’ goaltender RJ Bruni stopped 27 of 30 shots to earn the victory over the goals in our game; we know Port Moody Panthers Friday at Planet Ice. Christopher Nakamura (inset right) scored his fifth of we have guys who can put the season against Port Moody. the puck in the net. We know they’ll come.

when you have the opportunity to improve, you have to take it.” Moving forward, the Flames are coming off a solid 6-3 win on home ice over the Port Moody Panthers. Friday’s game saw the visitors jump out to a 1-0 lead on a goal from Bryden Luscombe. The Flames answered with goals from Alexander Smith and defenceman Reece Rivard’s first of the season on a Ridge Meadows powerplay, to move ahead 2-1 with under four minutes to play in the opening frame. The lead didn’t last long – Port Moody’s Liam Pearce tied the game at the 17:29 mark of the first period. Ridge Meadows moved ahead for good in the second frame on goals from Paul Piluso and Christopher Nakamura. Then, 5:42 into the third stanza, Bissett scored from Pesut and Clayton Lake to make it 5-2 Flames. Pearce’s second of the game, on a Panthers’ powerplay, narrowed the visitors’ margin to two goals with 12:55 to go in regulation.

Clan, Rowley off to Phoenix for date with Antelopes

Maple Ridge’s Alex Rowley is a freshman with the Simon Fraser University men’s soccer team.

The Simon Fraser University men’s soccer team – including freshman Alex Rowley from Maple Ridge – will need to continue to be road warriors, starting today (Thursday). The Clan have received word that the Sweet 16 of the National Collegiate Athletics Association National Tournament will take place in Phoenix, Ariz. SFU travelled to Phoenix Tuesday to prepare for today’s match against the third-ranked Grand Canyon Antelopes. SFU was expecting to host the third and fourth rounds in Hayward, Calif. at Pioneer Stadium,

the home of Cal State University East Bay, but word came down Monday morning that the round of 16 would be hosted by Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, despite the Clan being ranked first in the region. The Clan had to host the first and second round in Hayward, after the NCAA notified SFU that the bracket could not be played in Canada, citing concerns about the ability of student-athletes to cross the border. The third round of the NCAA national tournament will now be held at the GCU soccer field. If the Clan advance,

the fourth round will be played Saturday against the winner of the South Central Region at Antelope

Stadium in Phoenix. A graduate of Samuel Robertson Technical, Rowley was part of the

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: You change focus midweek, from curiosity to understanding, from secrets and research to “knowing.” Your philosophical, compassionate, “we are one” side lifts you to new heights of understanding, new gentle regions of insight. A love affair might lie on the near-term horizon. Travel, education, law or media are strongly favoured late week into late December – these pursuits might lead you to a new affair. Sunday/Monday are hopeful, friendly – you’re happy. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday eve onward. Start NOTHING new this week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Midweek’s the pivot: on Wednesday you slowly turn from surface relationships to deep, committed ones, or to a split. It’s an all-ornothing time. Luck occurs if you view “secondary results,” follow clues, and patch together events/ options. This applies especially in areas of intimacy, sexual desire, finances and partnership money, health diagnoses, research and lifestyle change. E.g., an investment might not be obvious, but if you look at what you already possess, or the industry that signs your paycheque, you find a good investment. Wishes come true midweek. Start NOTHING new. Gemini May 21-June 20: One last week of delay, potential mistakes and wrong directions or false starts. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. The focus of your days changes midweek, from a past month of work, boredom, and health concerns, to the weeks ahead, which hold new horizons, opportunities, exciting meetings and new faces, relocation potentials, negotiations, contracts, dealings with the public, and “fame.” Sunday/Monday are wise, loving, intellectual. Be ambitious, dutiful Tuesday/Wednesday – you are starting to sense your “new career.” Wish fulfillment, popularity, flirtations late week.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of pleasure, beauty, charming children and romance comes to an end midweek (Tuesday to Thursday) – a gentle end, filled with understanding – and a deeper or higher love. Wednesday begins a month of work, duties, dependents’ care, health and nutrition factors. But DO NOT start any new projects/tasks, relationships or ventures before Nov. 26. Mysteries, clues, research – and financial or sexual consequences – arise Sunday/Monday. Be wary of making a commitment. Thursday night to Saturday piques your ambition and brings situations of status, prestige. Careful Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start no new projects nor relationships before Nov. 26. A month of domestic, realty,security,retirement,foundational and nutritional concerns yields, Wednesday, to a month of romance, pleasure, beauty, expansion, self-expression, speculation and venturesome risk. Take those risks – you’ll be on a four-week winning streak. (But read the first sentence again.) Sunday/Monday brings relationships, co-operation or challenge (luckiest Sunday eve/night). Midweek cracks open the door to mystery – and golden answers. Wisdom, gentle love, far travel and education arrive late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A busy month ends Wednesday, and a slow, restorative, relaxing, domestic month begins. However, start nothing new before Nov. 26. This week might disrupt your investments or bank account (Thursday/Friday) – there is both an opportunity (before 7:30 p.m. Thursday) and a danger here (7:30 p.m. to Friday morning). Tackle chores Sunday/Monday – success and frustrations mingle. Relationships face you Tuesday to Thursday – this interval is almost wholly good, even magical, but deception or miscalculation is possible where home, family or residence enters. Finances, sex late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of money matters and sensual attractions ends Wednesday. The new month will feature paperwork, reports, errands, media and mail projects, travel, casual friends and siblings. There are no huge stakes – so be busy but relaxed. An opportunity can arise to travel afar, be published, teach or attend higher learning, win a lawsuit, or fall in love, even wed. But listen. Libra: start NOTHING before Nov. 26. Until then, till the field of the past. Sunday/Monday are romantic, accent pleasure. Midweek brings chores. Relationships, new horizons intrigue late week – be careful. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy remains high, but the accent shifts now from your personal concerns to your money and possessions. In the weeks ahead, chase new clients, seek a pay raise, buy/sell, and pursue, if you dare, a sensual person. (Daring will be the least requirement early: this is a friendly, polite, easy link. The daring part is being sure enough about your future and your desires to commit to this easy, but perhaps mild, bond.) DON’T start anything new before Nov. 26. Early week is for home. Tuesday-Thursday is romantic, creative. Work, health late week – caution Friday morn. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Wednesday ends a month of weariness, health concerns, weighty chores and low charisma. The weeks ahead feature high energy, clout, magnetism and effectiveness. Call in markers, seek favours, start significant projects (NOT before the 26th). Launch yourself toward a person, partnership, faraway place, fame, public dealings, negotiations, contracts and agreements. Your luck and progress will come through another (others generally) so be charming, eager and opportunistic. If someone gives you an opening, seize it. Love, beauty Friday.

Nov. 18 - 24, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A celebratory air fades midweek, as a month of duty, management demands, health concerns and weariness, begins. In the weeks ahead, be charitable, seek a broader spirituality, and co-operate with government, institutions and large corporations. However, don’t start anything, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Details, paperwork, errands, trips, communications and casual meetings fill midweek. Spiritual, governmental matters worry, but social/love urges inspire you. Domestic concerns need caution Thursday late night, confidence Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Pressures ease. A month of ambition and tests yields to a month (starting Wednesday) of friends, popularity, light romance (which can turn deeper) entertainment and optimism. Don’t start anything new (including relationships) before Nov. 26.Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (better after 2 p.m. Sunday) – get things done. Chase money, protect possessions midweek. You might be confused about a money matter: success lies in rethinking it from a career perspective (or a boss’s, parent’s). Talk, travel, driving fill Thursday eve to Saturday: take care Friday morning. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A thoughtful month passes Wednesday, and a new one, of pressure and deadlines, ambition and career, reputation and authority, will begin. You’ll be tested, and your reactions noted. This week, hold to the status quo – start nothing before Nov. 26. (Your thinking’s too fuzzy – though loving – until then.) Rest, lie low and contemplate Sunday/ Monday. Your energy and charisma soar TuesdayThursday. Chase money Thursday eve and Friday after mid-morn – be careful in-between. From midweek into mid-December, travel, law, higher education and cultural venues favour you, bring joy. timstephens@shaw.ca
