Disney dreams realized

TIMES reporter Maria Rantanen joined four local children on a dreamlift to Disneyland. by Maria Rantanen

Seventy-seven children, including several from Maple Ridge, were given the gift of a summer’s day on Tuesday as they took part in a one-day DreamLift trip to Disneyland courtesy of the Sunshine Foundation. From the 4:30 a.m. start to being welcomed back by parents at midnight, the day was filled with adventure for the children, who all have serious medical issues. Among the group were Maple Ridge kids Colin Huppee, 12, Cameron Campbell, 13, Matthew Norris, 12, and Casey Wright, 12.

Shark maiming reduces councillor to tears Six members from an animal defence group attended a Pitt Meadows council meeting. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Anthony Marr Vancouver Animal Defense League

A Pitt Meadows councillor was moved to tears over the plight of sharks during Tuesday night’s council-in-committee meeting. Councillor Janis Elkerton broke down in sobs after the Vancouver Animal Defense League made an appeal to the City of Pitt Meadows

to ban shark fins and used recently released data to prove his point. “I see shark finning tantamount to trophy hunting. It is incredible the way the fish suffer when they are dropped back in [the water], the emotional councillor said. “I understand Coun. Elkerton’s passion and I, too, have seen the horrific videos,” said Mayor Deb Walters. “I’m very much in support of the motion being put forward... We stand behind you and your research,” she elaborated, just before a unanimous council declared their intent to ban shark

fins in Pitt Meadows. Anthony Marr, spokesperson for the league, told council how his group randomly purchased shark fin samples from Vancouver and Richmond, and submitted them to the University of Guelph. The results from DNA analysis showed that, of 59 viable samples tested, 86 per cent were from endangered and threatened species of shark, including the critically endangered great hammerhead. “This is in direct violation of the Canadian law which specifically forbids any endangered species trade within the country,” Marr said.

“So far, each and every one of the municipalities to which we have made presentations since June have given the green light, except the main prize Richmond,” he explained. Richmond is “hemming and hawing” because of restaurant owners and politicians who benefit, Marr claimed. “I’m a Chinese person myself, so I have no problem saying that,” he added. “Some Chinese people are claiming to protect the Chinese culture. Their actions are shameful,” the environmental activist said.

One of the family highlights of the Christmas season, the CP Rail Holiday train is on track for another year of entertaining and fundraising. The train makes a three-week journey from Quebec to Port Moody, with plenty of stops. The most important stop to those around these parts, of course, is when the train makes it to Port Haney station in Maple Ridge, across the street from the Billy Miner Pub. Mark the calendar for Tuesday, Dec. 18 and be dressed warmly for the 7:45 p.m. event. Entertainers on the Maple Ridge train will include country band Doc Walker and Miss Emily. The Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative will be caroling at the event to add to the festive holiday atmosphere. The train program began in 1999 and has raised more than $6.4 millon and has brought in more than 2.6 million pounds of food in the American and Canadian trips.

Story and photos by Maria Rantanen

Doug Penner from Langley (right) decided to buy a Mickey Mouse hat when he visited Disneyland on Tuesday. The Orange County sheriff’s office came to greet the Lower Mainland kids at the John Wayne Airport and many volunteered to spend the day with them.

Sheriffs spread Sunshine to Ridge children ...continued from page A1

The children were all accompanied by volunteers from the Lower Mainland, many of whom were health-care professionals from BC Children’s Hospital. For example, Colin Huppee was matched with Patricia Lim, a doctor who is training to be a rehab physician at the children’s hospital. On arrival at the John Wayne Airport in Los Angeles, another contingent of volunteers greeted the children with cheers, ready to spend the day with the kids. They were all from the Orange County sheriffs’ office, which partners with the Sunshine Foundation to make the day special for the children. “The least we can do is to spend one day to make a child happy,” said Winston MacLean with the community services division of the sheriff’s office. MacLean spent the day with two nine year olds, one from North Vancouver and one from Richmond. But the volunteers were just part of the day – emergency personnel of all stripes helped the day run smoothly. Sending them off at the south terminal of the airport in Richmond in the early hours were several police officers – retired and active – including Maple Ridge’s Daryl Stone, president of the Lower Mainland chapter of the Sunshine Foundation, as well as Staff Sgt. Marc Alexander,

founding organizer of the Sunshine Dream for Kids golf tournament – the fundraiser that paid for this trip. Richmond firefighters were there to help escort the children and volunteers to the plane, sometimes just holding an umbrella to keep the rain at bay across the tarmac, other times, carrying the children onto the Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 – they also created a water cannon arch as the plane taxied onto the runway. Even the Canadian Border Services agents were smiling and greeting the children and volunteers, all the time checking bags and passports carefully before the trip. Matthew Norris, also from Maple Ridge, had slept five hours the night before DreamLift, but he was still looking forward to the best thing at Disneyland: “The rides!” he said, adding though that he’d also check out the gift shops. Cameron Campbell, a Grade 8 student at Samuel Robertson Technical,

was able to get some Jedi training at Disneyland, eventually fighting Darth Maul himself with his newfound skills in wielding a light saber. Marilyn MacDougall with the Orange County Sheriffs’ Office is one of the big organizers at L.A. end of DreamLift. MacDougall was also in charge of matching children with sheriffs’ office staff – many of whom were sheriffs and deputy sheriffs. “My goal is to make sure the kids have a fabulous day,” MacDougall said. “It’s all about the kids.” That could have been the tagline for the day as many of the volunteers expressed their caring and best wishes for the children as they explored Disneyland. Donna Muleady with the sheriffs’ office has been coming to DreamLift events for 14 years, and she still stays in contact with her first DreamLift child, and sometimes visits with her in Kelowna.

Operation Grinch

Safety message deters theft

A business association and the RCMP joined forces to help reduce crime. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

Nothing to steal but the sign. Please don’t steal the sign. That is the message a driver can send to thieves who are thinking about breaking into their car. Lynne Bradley, with the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association, teamed up with RCMP volunteer Joan Streifel to bring awareness to vehicle break-ins, especially during the Christmas shopping season. This integrated safety blitz is called Operation Grinch. “Everybody has to take steps to protect their vehicles and we are providing an extra tool,” said Bradley while handing out brochures at the entrance of Valley Fair Mall on Tuesday.

“On top of educating people, we are also providing a brochure or sign which shows thieves that they have taken steps to prevent being a victim of a break-in,” she explained. The sign reads: “Nothing to steal but the sign. Please don’t steal the sign.” Alyssa Martin and Brad Kersbergen were stopped by Bradley and Streifel as they exited Valley Fair. “We are going Christmas shopping today so this is good,” said Martin, who is from Mission. “We are pretty theft proof, but I’ve heard lots of stories of break-ins. During this time of year, and with our new baby, extra precautions never hurt,” Martin added. Bradley is the patrol person for the BIA. “It is amazing the amount of people who are still leaving items exposed. I see it all day during my patrols,” she said. Operation Grinch will happen again next Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Haney Place and Valley Fair malls.

Our View

Sharks need to be protected Pitt Meadows council presented a united front this week to protect sharks and asked City staff to prepare a report about how they could ban shark fins. While sharks haven’t been seen plying the water of the Alouette, Pitt, or Fraser rivers recently – if ever – council decided to take a stand on protecting the species. The Vancouver Animal Defense League made a presentation to Pitt Meadows council at Tuesday’s committee meeting. They explained that shark fins that were tested at the University of Guelph showed some were taken from endangered and threatened species, including the “critically endangered” great hammerhead shark. The issue brought out emotions and passion in the councillors and all agreed this was something that needed to be addressed. As we gain more information through science about animals, their habitats, and how they are threatened by certain human activities, we need to think in ethical terms about how we treat the environment they live in and how we procure the food we need for our nourishment. While many humans agree that it’s okay to kill animals to eat, almost everyone agrees that this should be done in an ethical way, and not in a way that hurts animals or threatens certain species. Pitt Meadows has decided not to turn a blind eye to the shark fin issue when they know that many sharks are endangered – even though it is probably a minor issue within the City’s parameters. But, as one city among a larger group, taking a stand against shark fins sends out the right message. Maple Ridge council has already banned shark fins, and we hope Pitt Meadows follows through to help protect the threatened species. -M.R.

Education

Dear Editor,

Thank you to the first parent, Natasha Etherington, who has the backbone to speak out for all the dyslexic children in B.C. I am a 12-year-old dyslexic boy who has been through two school districts and four different schools. I wasn’t even tested for anything until my parents pulled me out of Maple RidgePitt Meadows School District. Only then was I tested. I was 10 years old, but my parents knew when I was in Grade 1. I would come home after school with headaches, being tired, and stressed out. My parents had to give me days off from school to mentally catch up. I recall one time when I had to run a lap of the school and my teacher refused to let me get a drink because I didn’t have enough work done on paper.

I hated school and still do: not being understood and having teachers think “you’re just lazy.” It was extremely hard, because people assumed that “you are stupid” and not trying hard enough. After I found out that I was dyslexic, it was easier to explain to others that I am not an idiot. I think in ways in which other people most likely don’t. Over the years I have learned that I don’t care what others think of me. I know who I am. I know how I learn best. My parents showed me how to stand up for myself, because nobody else did. Yes, I certainly agree that the B.C. children are being failed in the schools. To everyone who is dyslexic: do not be ashamed of it; be proud that you are different.

Pitt Meadows airport

Tax increase blows writer’s mind Dear Editor,

I would agree that a 2,500 per cent tax increase is much more than mindblowing. I would think it borders on criminal. This is all about the Pitt Meadows Airport Authority attempting to extend the runway to accommodate jets, and as such, is a major concern for the people

of Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, and any other municipality that will be affected by this major change, unlike the Vancouver runway extension which went over water, and even so received major opposition for noise, environmental, and many other related consequences. This expansion will

Pitt Meadows

Property tax concern ignored Dear Editor,

Queen Walters of Pitt Meadows has had a busy year. She has taken residents’ input concerning property taxes and put us all on “ignore.” There was not even an attempt to cut anywhere, just an announcement that taxes will rise the next few years. Of course, this won’t stop City hall from giving themselves a nice raise in the new year, just like this year. What is it about a budget that City hall doesn’t understand? You can’t continue to spend freely and raise taxes every year to cover the shortage. Instead of the City cutting costs, they haven’t even tried, saying they want to maintain service levels. Meanwhile, the residents of Pitt Meadows are expected to pay, pay, and pay some more. Then there’s the land north of Lougheed Highway. Walters cast the deciding vote for the application to remove the land from the ALR. In the new year it looks like more of the same: higher taxes and more announcements from the throne. Queen Walters has said previously that she is listening to our concerns. The problem is that there is a big difference between listening to us and actually hearing us.

be going over expensive homes that have been there forever, and maybe have not been affected by the smaller, quieter propeller aeroplanes. We are talking about two acres of grass that will still be grass, even if the runway is extended. I would imagine there will be a lot of opposition to this particular runway expansion, so with that in mind, before you destroy a thriving business that will undoubtedly put a hole in Pitt Meadows’s commercial tax base, I would think Pitt Meadows council, which is already under pressure about tax increases, would make sure this expansion is even feasible before allowing an outrageous tax increase which appears to be a blatant attempt to evict Pacific Skydiving for no good cause. Many other businesses that supply and depend on Pacific Skydiving will be put in jeopardy as well. I have to even wonder if a tax increase this obscene is even legal. It occurs to me that the Pitt Meadows Airport Authority has possibly exceeded its mandate.

HST

Tricky authorities win tax windfall Dear Editor,

While reading the news release from the Canada Revenue Agency regarding the termination of the HST and the return to the PST/GST system, including the roll-back of personal tax exemptions to 2010 levels, I noticed they said the government of B.C. had legislated it. The Premier cancelled the fall session of the Legislature, so I wrote a letter to her and Mike De Jong, Minister of Finance, wondering how they had done this. Here is their response: “As part of HST implementation, the basic personal amount tax credit was increased from $9,373 to $11,000 in 2010.

As a result of the HST referendum, the government will reverse this enhancement with the re-implementation of the PST on April 1, 2013. The revised credit amount will be set at $9,373, plus any inflation indexing that has occurred since 2009.” So they are decreasing our exemptions by $1,700, and not returning the HST they have been collecting from each and every one of us for the past three years. All without going to work in Victoria. Boy! These guys are tricky. That sure sounds like a tax windfall for them, doesn’t it?

Activists ask for ban on fins After the presentation, several activists from the Vancouver Animal Defense League Sea Shepherd gathered in an adjoining room. “Sharks are being slaughtered at an alarming rate on a global scale, and they are running out of time,” said Surrey’s Darren Sacher. “The sharks don’t have the time to wait for our federal government to stand up for what is right, and I’m proud of our municipalities for stepping up and doing what they can while we fight for a federal ban,” he added. “I’m worried that by the time it is decided that something needs to be done it will be too late,” said Richmond’s Stephanie Chevrier, also a member of VADL. “Ever since I was a little girl I have loved the ocean, and once I learned about shark finning I knew I had to get involved,” Chevrier explained. “I love this earth that gave us life and all the creatures we share it with. We are all apart of this delicate ecosystem and we owe it our respect,” she added. “We have been working extremely hard to get shark fin out of restaurants and banned in Canada,” said Delta’s Jen Baotic. “We’ve been working on this campaign for months. We’ve been doing weekly protests at Fortune Garden restaurant in Vancouver – specifically them because not only do they serve shark fin soup, but they

serve tiger shark, which is a critically endangered species,” added Baotic. For a full list of the shark

Three more communities are joining the District of Maple Ridge and the City of Pitt Meadows in the mobile business licencing program. Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, and Port Moody agreed to implement a one-year intermunicipal business licence pilot. In November, nine communities including Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows joined the pilot project. The premise is that a multi-municipality licence will make it easier for businesses to operate in those communities. The MBL reduces red tape by allowing mobile businesses to operate in more than one municipality by purchasing one licence, rather than obtaining non-resident permits in each municipality in which they operate.

Past Christmases

Scrapping for fresh memories Here and There by Alan Woodland

C

hristmas is coming. He sits at his computer staring at the screen. His deadline is three days away and he has to write 600 words on the most written about event of the year. He’s been writing a column for the paper for some time and he knows that most of his Christmas stories have already been told. He thinks about Christmases with his family when he was a child, when they all gathered in their small house and filled the rooms with food and talk and laughter. He begins to write, smiling at the memory of one Christmas morning when he was seven or eight. Instead of waking to find the large grey sock filled with the usual Christmas things, he found a readymade stocking with a stiff red back and a black net front through which he could see the shapes and colours of the items packed inside it.

He didn’t know the word cornucopia then, but he thinks about it now, the toys overflowing as he tore open the tab at the stocking’s top. The eyes of his memory widen at the thought of it. He tries to visualize the individual items that spilled out onto the bed, toys and trinkets that he knew he had played with all through the holidays, but he can’t. He has a sense of bright colours and flat metal. He can see himself arranging the items in order, trying unsuccessfully to put them back into the torn stocking. He rubs his eyes and looks hard at the screen. He knows this isn’t his only memory of childhood Christmases? He knows there were other mornings when he had woken early, whispering with his brothers and sister so as not to waken their parents, searching in the sock for the chocolate and the orange he knew would be there; the oncea-year treat that would be unwrapped and peeled and eaten quickly, one bite of orange and then one of chocolate, alternately, until they were gone. As he pictures the traditional sock with its home-

made contents, he realizes that the manufactured one, which had seemed so flashily exciting at the time, was probably filled with cheap tin junk. No chocolate, no orange, no knitted gloves or socks; nothing of wood, paper, or leather. He wonders about his parents’ decision to break an age-old family custom, and then it comes to him that this was the year they were really poor. It was deep into the ’30s and his father was not always at work and there would have been little money for chocolate and oranges, or for the wool to knit the traditional gloves and socks. His mother had not been well that year and must have struggled to provide the good things needed to bake a cake and have a few wrapped presents to pass around. As the time ticks away and the deadline grows closer, he remembers other Christmases when large cardboard boxes had arrived in the post from his grandparents and aunts and uncles to be ceremoniously opened to reveal gaily wrapped packages that would be added to those already under the

tree. He considers the colour and flavour of Christmas, the red and green and gold, the fruit cake and mince pies and how thrilled and happy he had always been and then he realizes that, even in the worst years, he had not known how poor his family was. He looks once more at the screen, touches the keys that will tell him how many words he has written and reads – 597. Christmas had come.

Youth

Kids count coins for kids

by Ronda Payne editorial@mrtimes.com

There’s a force at work in the community that is far stronger than one might guess. It’s kids. Kids who care about making a difference in the lives of others. They come together under the name of DSAC – District Student Advisory Council – and they take on all sorts of activities. Their most recent venture has been to raise money in the Coins for Kids fundraiser, which sees all of the cash raised donated to the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society. “Coins for Kids has been done for years,” 12thgrader Lauren Zink of Samuel Robertson Technical Secondary said at the coin counting event Tuesday. Zink was surrounded by youth of varying ages, a few adults, and a lot of coins. The group was set up with tables and coin wrappers at the Albion fairgrounds (home to the hamper society) to have a coin-wrapping party – of sorts. There were two to five kids from every school in the district, except one. Obviously it was noisy. Each elementary and secondary school has its own small group of DSAC representatives. According to

Nine-year-old Maple Ridge resident Sasha Pogrebinsky donated one of 102 toys collected by Katie Pesut (black toque), Tanya McEwan, Chase McEwan, and Devin Powley, for the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper at the West Coast Express Port Haney Station on Saturday morning.

David Wang and a fellow student from Eric Langton Elementary took their time to count coins before rolling them. Garibaldi Grade 11 student Gabrielle Lalande, teachers and faculty recommend which students can participate. Together, all the DSAC representatives come together to talk about their activities for the year, including things like Coins for Kids. The objective is to raise funds in the form of coins and each school participates in a way that makes sense for its students and staff. The Christmas hamper society provides a large jar to each school in which to deposit

their hard earned money. Glenwood Elementary sold CandioGrams. “They have sold 120 so far and are selling them for 50 cents each,” said DSAC co-chair Jenna Crews. “They have also made bookmarks they are selling at their Christmas concert.” Edith McDermott Elementary held a Winter Woolly pajama day on Monday where participants donated a quarter. The school will also be selling hot beverages to raise funds. Last year the DSAC group raised $4,000. “We hope to raise that much if not more this year,” said Crews.

Sixteen years and counting. Tanya McEwan – along with seven other volunteers – collected 102 unwrapped toys at the West Coast Express Port Haney Station on Saturday morning. For McEwan, this is the 16th time that she has gone to the train platform to trade train tickets for toys, for the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society. They also collected food and money. “We’ve been doing this since it started,” she said. “It is an important journey for me, and my kids – to teach them what Christmas is all about.” McEwan and her kids Chase and Mackenzie were also joined

last weekend by volunteers Bill Sawchuk, Sydney Hammer, Savannah Wise, Katie Pesut, and Devin Powley. “We had 102 toys, plus food and cash, which is a nice surprise given today’s economy. It’s great the way this community pulls together,” McEwan said. Mike Bergman agrees. Bergman has been a station attendant for West Coast Express for 17 years. “Santa Train is my favourite special train we do. The Christmas spirit is extremely high here,” he explained. “I’ve always been impressed and overwhelmed with the generosity of the people in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows,” said Bergman. “One lady brought four presents for one ticket. That’s an example of generosity,” he said. Saturday, Dec. 15, the group will be back to trade return tickets for unwrapped toys at Port Haney Station at 10:19 a.m. and Maple Meadows Station at 10:25 a.m.

Christmas bird count

Naturalists counting more than just crows by Ronda Payne

editorial@mrtimes.com

Ronda Payne/TIMES

Alouette Field Naturalists intend to take on their annual bird count between Christmas and New Year’s.

Counting birds sounds like somewhat of a futile task, but according to Duanne Vandenberg of the Alouette Field Naturalists, it’s quite rewarding. “We were little old ladies in running shoes,” said Vandenberg of how birders were perceived in the 70s. “But recently pictures of snowy owls made the news.” She and a group of 25 or 30 cover a vast area to count birds

as part of the annual Audubon Christmas bird count. While most residents of the Lower Mainland will be snug in their houses, enjoying leftover turkey, these dedicated counters choose one day between Christmas and New Year’s to count birds, then results are collated and sent to bird observatory in Ontario. Local bird counters aren’t alone. The Audubon count takes place from Alaska down to South America. And for those wondering how all

the birds get counted, Vandenberg answers simply, “you don’t. You do what you can. You count every bird you can see.” Counters are given an official counting sheet to do their tallies. That being said, her past experience has taught her where to find the birds. “You get to know what the hot spots are. It’s cold. Where are the bushes?” After a full day of counting, the group gets together with a potluck to share their findings. This also sheds light on conservation efforts.

“You can tell when the numbers are dropping and where they’re dropping,” she noted. Vandenberg also noted bird counting leads to witnessing signs of global warming. “There was a tropical kingbird in Boundary Bay. What’s it doing here?” She asked. “It should be in Mexico.” On birding as a whole, she said, “It enriches your life, you notice more, it gets you out, gets you walking and wherever you go, you’ve got an interest.”

The Keg is open early at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday – Sunday until December 23rd. Another reason to love this time of year. Maple Ridge (604) 457.8911

Fewer photos taken at annual Help Portrait About 150 people attended an event on Saturday where photographers, hairstylists, and make-up artists helped people look their best. Story and photos by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

A family portrait with four generations. Not much beats that in the portrait-taking department, according to Andrea Walker, a Help Portrait organizer, who pointed out the family in the waiting area of the Saturday’s event. Jaime Wagner, 24, was there with her son Daxtyn, mom Jesse Fast, and nana Celia Fast. “It’s pretty cool. We haven’t had one with all of us together,” Wagner explained, adding that the last family portrait they had done was five years ago, before three-year-old Daxtyn came along. “It’s really exciting for us, especially around Christmas time, to come together, put it on the wall for people to see, and be proud of it,” she said about the portraits they would be taking home from the event. Help Portrait is a worldwide event where photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists, and graphic artists volunteer to do free photo shoots for financially strapped people. In Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Help Portrait was held in the hall at the Golden Ears United Church this past weekend. Maple Ridge photographer and returning volunteer Stephanie Mitchell said she loves the event.

Serena Hart, 28, (left) posed for Stephanie Mitchell at the Help Portrait event on Saturday, while Gail Springer watched Andrea Walker (top) edit the photos that Jody Taylor took. And four generations (above) posed for a family portrait.

“I’ve always loved photography, but I was never able to make a career of it. [Help Portrait] gives me the chance to get out there and do it, while giving back to the community,” Mitchell said. “I absolutely have fun with all my models,” she added. Help Portrait was such a success last

year that organizers Walker, Brenda Garcia, and Rev. Richard Bott were expecting even more people this year. But that is not what happened, according to Walker. “There were more people last year. We really wanted to increase our numbers this year,” she explained, adding 150 attended.

“We may need to go out to the people. We’ve talked about sending a team out to the Caring Place and other locations, and working on some kind of transportation to get people here,” Walker added. “But, it was really great. We saw lots of people from last year and we saw a lot of new faces as well.”

elcome again to week #7 of In The Zone Fitness’ 10 week fitness challenge. My name is Ania Glowacka and I am a BCRPA certified Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist at In The Zone Fitness in the heart of Pitt Meadows. 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.

est muscle group and therefore burn the most calories. Though Ralph felt completely fatigued by the end of each session, he was able to confidently increase the weight used, the number of reps done and the total number of exercises performed.

With only three weeks left in the ten week fitness challenge, it was definitely time to amp up Ralph’s intensity to maximize all progress. Though he no longer felt under the weather, work and his schedule had been extremely busy and stressful leaving him to feel fatigued. Despite this and due to his new level of conditioning from the past weeks, Ralph pushed through an extra interval on his cardio feeling strong. He also noticed that his legs did not feel as strained after the elliptical as they once had.

Ralph continued to maintain that had he not had a trainer, he would not have pushed himself as hard as he had been. He stated that he realized that it was this extra push that got him down 11lbs thus far, only 4lbs away from his initial goal and with only half of the challenge completed. Because of the success so early on, we discussed Ralph re-visiting his initial goal of a 15lbs weight loss. Having had the weekend to think of a new goal, he decided to switch the focus from pounds lost to inches around his waist lost, as he was not certain what number would read on the scale if he no longer carried extra fat around his mid-section. I agreed that this was the better focus as the scale alone can be a deceiving tool at times, especially when increasing muscle mass (muscled weighs more than fat).

This week, our focus was increasing the intensity on his leg workouts as they are the larg-

YOU SURVIVED THE FALL The taxi of mom & dad

Maple Ridge’s Ken Willis, and his daughter Gina, of Vancouver, spent a month exploring South Asia, including a trek through the Himalayas in Bhutan, and the sacred Shwedagon Paya (inset) in Burma, where they had their pictures taken holding a copy of The TIMES. In the meantime, the Christensen family (left) of Maple Ridge, 10-year-old Brianna, 12-year-old Rebecca, six-year-old Brendan, and Dad and Mom (Jason and Tracy), travelled to Cancun, Mexico recently, where they too had a picture taken holding a copy of their hometown newspaper, The TIMES.

ne lucky senior is going home for the holidays thanks to a Christmas contest being hosted by the local Nurse Next Door. For most people, Christmas is a busy and sociable time filled with joy and time spent with loved ones. To help bring some Christmas spirit to those often forgotten, they’re holding a contest aimed at bringing a senior home for the holiday. “For seniors living in medical facilities, often the reason they cannot make it home for the holidays is because they require the assistance of trained caregivers

or medical staff,” said Carol Lange, owner of Nurse Next Door Maple Ridge. “If the elderly patients’ family members are unable to help with their daily living activities and care needs, the senior may not be discharged.” The winner will be provided with two days of complimentary home-care services based on their individual needs, including a delicious meal preparation, transportation and errand running, and 24/7 care from a registered nurse. The deadline for a 300-word submissions is Dec. 19. Send it in to www.nursenextdoor.com.

You & The Law

HURT IN A CAR CRASH WHILE WORKING? WCB OR ICBC? Say you, a delivery truck driver, were injured in a rear-end accident while working. You’re covered by WorkSafeBC, and the driver at fault in the accident has ICBC liability insurance. Should you look to WorkSafeBC for recovery, or are you better off seeking compensation from ICBC? That depends. But first, be aware that you may not have a choice. If the driver at fault was also working at the time and is covered by WorkSafeBC, you can only get workers compensation. That’s because section 10 of the Workers Compensation Act prohibits suing in court for damages (compensation) – sometimes called the “worker-on-worker” bar. But if the other driver wasn’t working, you have a choice. You can collect WorkSafeBC benefits, or you can take legal action against the at-fault driver (who will be defended by ICBC). It makes a difference how you choose. For example, with WorkSafeBC, you get nothing for “pain and suffering.” Compensation for lost future earnings is also much more limited. If you were seriously hurt, these dollar amounts can be substantial. ICBC knows this, so they may try to steer you to seek compensation from WorkSafeBC rather than you suing the at-fault driver (and ICBC). But if you claim through WorkSafeBC, you may lose your ability to sue the atfault driver and ICBC, potentially giving up a significant amount of compensation only available through ICBC. You also have to choose quickly, because the time period for claiming WorkSafeBC benefits is short. And there are many questions you’ll need answers to first. For example, what if the at-fault driver who hit you was on their way to work at the time of the accident? Does it matter if they were driving a company vehicle, or got mileage reimbursement at the time? Does this mean they were “working”? If so, you are caught by the “worker-on-worker” bar and can’t sue in court for

damages. The Workers Compensation Appeal Tribunal has the authority to decide who are “workers” for this purpose, and its rulings generally stand. If this is an issue and you try to sue the at-fault driver, ICBC will likely defend claiming that your lawsuit is barred by the workers compensation law. If the Workers Compensation Appeal Tribunal later concludes that the at-fault driver was indeed a “worker” and the ICBC defence succeeds, you’ll be stuck paying not only your own lawsuit costs but probably also a portion of the defendant’s legal costs. So you need clarity on your position up front. And there are other things that play into what option to pursue. If you collect WCB benefits, WCB may, in your place, pursue ICBC. WCB is entitled to stand in your shoes and recover any benefits it pays you, plus a significant percentage for administration fees. But do you want the WCB lawyers to sue on your behalf against the ICBC-defended, at-fault driver? Or do you want your own lawyer to do it? Given that the WCB lawyers work for WCB, and their focus is on WCB’s cost recovery, how hard will they fight to get you any compensation you may be entitled to over and above that? If they want to accept an ICBC-offered settlement, you’ll be stuck with that settlement even if you think it’s too low. There are many wrinkles to any particular situation involving workers injured in a vehicle accident, making each one unique. Talk promptly with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can guide you and help preserve both your WorkSafeBC and ICBC claims. This column has been written with the assistance of DANIEL C. RICHARDSON. It provides information only and must not be relied on for legal advice. Please contact DANIEL C. RICHARDSON of BTM Lawyers LLP for legal advice concerning your particular case.

Christmas cheer

Mounties bring seasonal joy to seniors A choir of Ridge Meadows RCMP members, and others, are blanketing the area with song. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

A group of singing Mounties are spreading some holiday cheer as Christmas approaches. The choir – made up of Ridge Meadows RCMP members, retired RCMP members, municipal employees, and some friends – are touring seniors’ homes, singing some holiday classics to the residents. Supt. Dave Walsh, who is the top cop with Ridge Meadows RCMP, started this choir approximately 15 years ago.

As Walsh says before every performance, “You can have good, or you can have entertaining, but unfortunately you can’t have both.” “That sort of sums up the talent portion,” Herbranson noted.

No doubt, the women’s soccer team inspired a new generation with their bronze medal run in London this past summer. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

By joining a dragon boat crew consisting of fellow breast cancer survivors, a local mom of two has forged lasting friendships while discovering a fun new way to exercise.

Ouimet concurs: “It’s great exercise. I think women start to trust their bodies again because you’re pretty shaken up, dealing with breast cancer. The process gives you confidence and helps you trust yourself again.” Wife to John and mom to 12year-old Aslan and three-year-old Eva, Ouimet was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2011.

Anne Gordon was positively leaping for joy due to the enthusiasm participants showed at her Zumbathon Saturday.

Donation

Zumba aids sick kids A TIMES sales representative used her zumba skills to collect toys for BC Children’s Hospital. by Ronda Payne editorial@mrtimes.com

Combining two things she cares about, Haney’s Anne Gordon collected seven boxes of toys for kids at BC Children’s Hospital. The seed for the toy fundraiser was planted when Gordon’s daughter wanted to know if Santa Claus visited children in the hospital at Christmas. Gordon, a TIMES sales representative and zumba instructor, thought about her four years teaching zumba and knew she could use those skills to make Christmas brighter for kids who can’t be at home. On Saturday she led a Zumbathon in Langley. Anyone could come out to enjoy the Latin-inspired dance-style exercise – they just needed to bring an unwrapped toy. “There were a lot of my regulars, a few new people, and one gal even came up from the U.S.,” Gordon said. More than 25 zumba-enthusiasts came to the event and filled seven large boxes with unwrapped toys for infants to teens.

Gift cards for iTunes and cash were also part of the mix. Gordon made her special donation drop at BC Children’s Hospital on Monday. “I’ll definitely do it again,” she said of the event. “Probably for every Christmas.” In her zumba “Knowing that classes, men I can contribute and women of all ages, shapes, and make a kid’s and fitness levChristmas a little els come out to brighter, and for what she calls “exercise in disthe parents too, guise,” describit’s rewarding.” ing it as “a Latin-inspired, Anne Gordon calorie-burning dance fitnessparty.” Participants in the Zumbathon ranged in age from 18 and up and were all body shapes and sizes, according to Gordon. Of her first Zumbathon and donating to the hospital, Gordon said, “Knowing that I can contribute and make a kid’s Christmas a little brighter, and for the parents too, it’s rewarding.” People can still donate gifts for kids at BC Children’s Hospital. Visit the hospital’s website at www.bcchildrens.ca, click on “contact us”, then scroll down to “making a difference.” Information about this year’s wishlists is available by clicking on “patient entertainment and nonmonetary gifts”.

A group of more than 25 came together to collect toys for kids at BC Children’s Hospital while getting into zumba.

Aries March 21 - April 19: This week starts with hope – perhaps too much hope, as your logic weakens in the face of fond feelings or fond fantasies. Still, enjoy the friendship, popularity and happiness Sunday/ Monday. By Monday eve, retreat to plan, contemplate and rest. You might experience a philosophical difference with someone, or a snag in dealing with government or institutions Tuesday, but Wednesday holds a sparkling love attraction, or a smooth breakthrough in legal, educational or travel zones. Your energy and charisma come roaring back Thursday into Saturday morning – start something ambitious. Taurus April 20-May 20: Focus on career, business, your ambitions and prestige relationships Sunday/Monday. Though this is a quiet, deep month, involving big decisions in lifestyle, finances and intimacy, lighter notes come midweek, as entertainment, popularity, friends and optimism buoy your spirits. Thursday through Saturday morning, though, seek solitude and quiet; rest, contemplate and plan. This interval might bring a new, lucky idea involving your career, government or head office (or some authority) and the fruits of research, detective work. An investment or financial manoeuvre might be involved. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of exciting meetings, new opportunities and new horizons (perhaps relocation). Take advantage – make contacts, travel, call, make your bid. You feel wise and loving Sunday/ Monday – but don’t blend a love relationship (even worse, a secret or collusive link) with your ambitions/career. By Monday night through Wednesday your actions and reputation will be scrutinized by higher-ups: if you pass, success follows. Be cautious to Tuesday noon, then pursue your goals. You could meet a new love Wednesday. Thursday/Friday bring light romance, social joy and new hopes.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Cancer June 21-July 22: This is your last week of drudgery. Tackle all chores, get them out of the way, because several new opportunities and friendship prospects will arise Friday into late January. You’ll want your energy and time to be free for these. Sunday/Monday feature investments, debt, large finances, sexual urges, subconscious desires, health diagnosis and lifestyle decisions. Midweek emphasizes far travel, wisdom, learning, gentle love. It also brings splendid career/work luck and inspiration (Wednesday). More emphasis on your career, community status, Thursday/Friday. Saturday, happiness! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: This is your last week of “heavy romance” or deep creativity, so don’t waste it. (By “heavy,” I mean deep or significant.) Sunday/Monday bring partnership prospects, exciting meetings, new horizons, opportunities – and potential opposition, even enmity. You might be deceiving yourself about the chances of sex with someone very attractive. Be aware, astute. Midweek emphasizes sex, intimacy, large finances, changes and commitment. True love’s possible – you might even agree to wed. Wisdom, a mellow mood, culture, rituals, far travel, learning – and love – flow Thursday/Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s the last week of emphasis on your home, on security, real estate, kids/parents, retirement, etc. Though this zone begins to fade now in terms of big projects, demands and burdens, it now begins to bless you with sweet results and affection, especially Wednesday. However, don’t try to force “home delights” on a partner or prospective mate Sunday. (This day and Monday are for chores: eat and dress sensibly.) Midweek brings exciting meetings, new opportunities. Thursday to Saturday feature sexual urges, financial luck. Friday begins a month of romance, risk and pleasure.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The fast pace of paperwork, travel, errands and calls continues – until Friday, when a month of deeper, domestic concerns will begin. Sunday/Monday are romantic – take a risk, collect your reward. Applies in love, and money too. But beware misunderstanding the import of a remark or message about work or health-related drugs. DON’T buy machinery. Midweek brings many chores (tackle them) – and a possible heart-thumping development in love. You might meet a new mate, or “rediscover” one. Thursday/Friday emphasize co-operation, opportunities, barriers and enmity – pick the positive. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money or collect possessions. Friday begins a month that won’t contain the same solidity of reward – so go all out before that day. Sunday/ Monday feature home, security, foundations. Don’t let a love of money (or possessiveness) interfere with a slowly blossoming romance or creative project. Midweek emphasizes romance, adventure, risk, self-expression, love, teaching, beauty, pleasure and creativity – but it also offers “sweet luck” (Wednesday) in work/money. (In some cases, sudden love.) Tackle chores Thursday/Friday. Saturday brings money opportunity. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Remain focused on big, important projects, people, relationships. Let the small, the details, paperwork, etc., wait until February – but tackle the most pressing of these Sunday/Monday. In past weeks you’ve attracted attention (don’t blame me if you’ve hidden from it). Now to Jan. 7 you radiate a subtle charm that can turn friends into lovers, competitors into friends. Remember, until June/12 you have to be the chaser in love and money (if you want luck). Home, midweek. Romance, creativity Thursday/Friday – risk it!

Dec. 16 - 22, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Stay quiet, restful, contemplative until Friday – then one of the best months of your year begins. Until then, plan near-future actions/projects. Chase money Sunday/Monday. A sensual attraction might lure you, but deception or illusion can make you uncertain of your footing, or bring an element of gossip or “sneaking around.” Midweek brings errands, casual friends, paperwork (and newspapers) – drive carefully, as you’re a bit weary. Head home Thursday/ Friday – Thursday for rest, Friday for getting ready to launch. Saturday your energy rises: chase romance or grab an opportunity. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Enjoy your social life while you can – Friday brings a month of quietude, rest and recuperation, thinking and planning. But until then, the social delights continue! Your energy and charisma draw others Sunday/Monday: start things. But shop only carefully: (mild) deception invades money matters. Midweek, chase money, pursue new clients, etc. Buy electrical, auto or computer items afternoon Tuesday to 2 p.m. (PST) Wednesday. Siblings, casual friends, trips, calls, visits, news, errands and paperwork fill Thursday/Friday. Friendship might turn to romance. Home, rest, Saturday. Pisces Feb.19-March 20: Remain ambitious. Put your best self forward for bosses, parents, other VIPs – they will favour you now to early January. Be restful, quiet, contemplate and plan, Sunday/Monday. A parent or child might do you a favour – or argue. Your energy and magnetism rise nicely midweek – be bold, see and be seen, ask favours, start projects and relationships (before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday). Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Avoid engine/electronic/computer purchases Thursday afternoon. Friday begins a month of social delights, flirtations, wish fulfillment and optimism! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808

Todd.....I am writing to express our sincere appreciation for your effort in resolving a problem with our engineered hardwood floor. Recently we moved to Vancouver Island and with your company’s reputation we decided to go with Diverse Flooring to supply and install engineered hardwood flooring in our new home. Unfortunately, a situation arose which was not anticipated by you or us which required the entire floor to be replaced.As difficult as this was, I would commend you for stepping up and having the necessary work done at no cost to us.The end result is that we have a beautiful, professionally installed hardwood floor which we all can be proud of. Thank you again....we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Diverse Flooring as a preferred supplier.
