Renos spark unity

A green business will give a presentation on retrofitting homes on Tuesday. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

It started with a squishy toilet – but now a Hammond couple is planning to lift their home, dig out the basement, and retrofit their home to make it as energy efficient as possible. James Rowley and Leanne Koehn live in a house built by her grandfather in the 1920s, and the repairs they are planning will make it more structurally and environmentally sound. It could be costly, but Rowley and Koehn feel it’s the right thing to do. To make it happen, they are hoping to get a large number of like-minded homeowners and stakeholders together. They’re holding a meeting Tuesday to hear a presentation about collaboratively retrofitting multiple homes to save money. “We can’t wait for government to give the right incentive to do the right thing,” Rowley said. With a heritage revitalization agreement for their home in the works with the District of Maple Ridge, the Rowley-Koehn family will have five years – if it is approved by Maple Ridge council – to complete the renovations. continued on page A14...

Hammond Cedar manager Scott Bax led the TIMES on a tour through the mill that has been a fixture in Maple Ridge for more than a century.

Industry

Mill woven into fabric of community

Hammond Cedar has employed generations of workers. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

It’s a clear, crisp morning in mid-January, and the mill that has served as an economic driver in Maple Ridge for more than a century stirred awake with the rising sun. The machinery, the heart of the operation, seemed to speak: groaning, creaking, whirring, thudding, and slapping. As darkness lifted, painting the sky and world under it pale blue, a layer of fog clung to the Fraser River that works as the feeder system for Interfor Hammond Mill. High above the water, perched on a catwalk, mill manager Scott Bax peered down at the boom, surveying huge logs as they ascended into the mill, to be stripped and cut

into building material. Yes, it’s a typical day at the mill commonly known as Hammond Cedar, but it’s a vital day for the community’s economy. That’s because each day Hammond Cedar operates, it provides employment for 165 workers. “We have lots of employees who are second generation, and we have third-generation employees, where it’s been in their family for years,” Bax said. “They work here because their parents or their grandparents worked here, and they love forestry… this is where they wanted to go.” The mill has been an integral part of the life of Hammond since 1910. First called the Bailey Lumber Company, by 1912 it was the Port Hammond Lumber

Company, by 1916 its name changed to the Hammond Cedar Mill, and in 1946 was taken over by B.C. Forest Products, according to the District of Maple Ridge’s The Heritage Resources of Maple Ridge. Today, Hammond Cedar is the world’s largest western red cedar mill by capacity. The mill accounts for 15 per cent of the production of cedar on the planet and 80 per cent of the sales are generated in North America, with 20 per cent of output exported around the world. Hammond Cedar has an annual payroll of more than $12 million and between 55 and 60 per cent of its employees live in either Maple Ridge or Pitt Meadows.

Teresa MacLeod is the new library manager for the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows libraries.

St. Patrick’s School Librarian welcomes all Open House Maria Rantanen/TIMES

Library

A public amenity promotes literacy and information in many forms. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Serving everyone in the community, open access to information, and intellectual freedom – these are some of the things the new Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows library manager values in the public library system. Teresa MacLeod, who took over as manager of both libraries on Jan. 2, has been getting familiar with the “busy” libraries and their programs. “I think there’s social value in public libraries,” MacLeod said. “We serve the community – we serve everyone in the community.” Moving from Mission to Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, MacLeod is doing the “same job in a very different location,” she said. But the end goal is the same – to provide library services to all community residents, MacLeod said, from babies to seniors. In 2013, this includes a lot of technology, which gives access to information for library users.

While for some younger people, electronic gadgets are intuitive, there are still many people who don’t use computers or other modern technology, and there isn’t many places where one can go to learn. The library provides workshops on how to use technology from introductory computer classes to social media lessons. “It’s comfortable to come to the library and have a little class,” MacLeod said. Talking with people in the community, it is often a surprise to the public that there is such a wide offering of material at the library. “We still have a lot of work to do to get our message out,” MacLeod said. Books these days come in many formats: audio books on CD, mp3 discs, and playaways. There are also large-print books, eBooks, electronic audio books – as well as traditional paper books. And while there has been a 37-per-cent increase in demand for e-Books, traditional books are still the biggest item in demand at the library. Because she worked as a children’s librarian for years, MacLeod said her bias tends to be toward a focus on children’s programming. “I always think if you can entice children early on, you have them for life,” MacLeod said.

A time-honoured skill will be introduced in a sold-out class at the museum in Pitt Meadows on Saturday. Jeff Chenatte, an arts and heritage educator for the Langley Centennial Museum, is holding an interpretive blacksmith training workshop at the Pitt Meadows Museum & Archives. The Maple Ridge resident, who has 20 years experience as a blacksmith and who opened Forged Art Works in 1996, said that any time he teaches this class “people end up walking away astounded with what they’ve made.” The workshop is intended for people interested in learning how to smith in a museum or in an artistic setting. People who attend are expected to give back in volunteer hours at the Hoffmann site at the museum. “Basically, it’s an introduction to blacksmithing. It is always fun,” Chenatte said, adding that he will introduce a number of techniques and his students will make hooks, and maybe even a fireplace poker, time permitting. People who try blacksmithing usually have a passion for it, explained Chenatte. “It was very odd the first time I tried, it felt as though I had done it before, and instantly I was hooked. From the start I had an appreciable aptitude for this ancient craft. I was enthralled with the almost mystic process of shaping metal

Firefighter makes cut

A man from Maple Ridge is one of the top 15 contenders for Canada’s Handyman Challenge. Maple Ridge firefighter Rhys Carmichael was selected out of hundreds who tried out for the HGTV television show. In the show’s second season the stakes are higher and the competition fierce. This time out, the winner takes home a $25,000 prize. In the tryouts, Carmichael and his fellow contenders were given a single piece of plywood to fashion into something unique. He said he was hopeful, in spite of some tough questioning from the judges about the built-in ironing board he crafted. The top five contestants from auditions in Halifax, Vancouver, and Toronto move on to the finals in Toronto, where they face intense challenges, demanding expectations, and tough critiques by judges. From building freestanding patio swings in under two hours, re-upholstering a chair in just 30 minutes, and facing the judges for one-on-one trivia, the challenges this season will test speed, expertise, and precision to determine which contestant will walk away $25,000 richer. “The calibre of contestants this season is just amazing,” said HGTV celebrity judge Bryan Baeumler (Leave It To Bryan).

Our View

Keep warm, and carry on It’s just like your mom always said when you were a kid: put on a sweater. FortisBC is teaming up with local business groups, including right here in Maple Ridge, to promote energy conservation and helping the less fortunate. This Feb. 2 to 9 is Turn Down the Heat Week in a number of B.C. communities, in which homeowners and business proprietors are being urged to set the thermostat just a little bit lower. Simultaneously, local Business Improvement Associations (BIAs) and member merchants are taking in donations of sweaters for those in need. It’s easy to push the thermostat up and bask as warm air comes out of the vents. But that air is warmed by the combustion of non-renewable natural gas, or in some rare cases, by electricity created by damming mighty B.C. rivers. Saving energy is a good philosophy, and one that shouldn’t be practised just one week of the year. We have four to six damp and cool months every year in B.C., sometimes including June. A sweater, a pair of warm socks, and blanket while settled in for a night of TV are easier on both environment and bank balance than cranking up the furnace. The simple lesson from our mothers’ call to put on a sweater can be expanded out from there. Which is cheaper, putting more insulation in a house, or putting in a bigger furnace? In the long run, it’s no contest, even if high-grade insulation is a bigger up-front cost. In the summer, the same thing applies to air conditioning. The way we build our homes and offices, from double-glazed windows to the colour of paint to the use of shade trees, can make a big difference and cut down on the energy we expend. Here in B.C., we’re not known for dealing well with the cold, compared to the rest of Canada. We should acknowledge that making a home a couple of degrees cooler is still better than moving to Winnipeg. – M.C.

Waste management

OPEN HOUSE

Time for garbage discussion

Dear Editor, I totally agree with Todd Oliver [Citizen survey promoted, Jan. 24, TIMES]. I was very disappointed that council dismissed the municipal garbage debate so quickly. One of the questions I asked all the candidates running for council last election was their stand on municipal garbage pickup. I fear Maple Ridge is growing more and more behind by not providing municipal pickup. We need green and garbage pickup like most municipalities in the Greater Vancouver area. I work in Port Coquitlam and am very impressed with their city’s commitment to the environment and their services. The Maple Ridge recycling society does a wonderful job, however our city should be managing all garbage and recycling pickup.

It would reduce the trucks on the road, and the traffic, and allow for a comprehensive garbage/recycling program. On my street, three different trucks travel to pick up garbage on three different days, plus the recycling trucks on Thursdays. We would reduce the litter, increase education among citizens regarding household garbage and recycling, and become aligned with every other major town/city in North America. The cost would be minimal, compared to the impact on the District, and the rewards would be great. When I moved here 15 years ago, I was surprised there was no waste management program in the District of Maple Ridge. The time has come. Please open up. Let’s debate, discuss, and move forward.

Anti-union rant unfair to nurses

Dear Editor, Contrary to Gordy Robson’s uninformed anti-union rant [Florence lost her way, Jan. 29 Just Saying, TIMES], nurses are always concerned about the health and well-being of our patients. We work to ensure patients receive the best quality of care with the resources that are available. His mother’s former union continually pushes to improve those resources, such as increasing staffing for safe patient care, which we achieved in the nurses’ latest collective agreement. Nurses consistently push

for the highest standards of cleanliness in health-care facilities, and advocate a comprehensive approach to infection control. Unfortunately, all the tools required to combat threats, such as the norovirus that has plagued hospitals and long-term care facilities this year, aren’t always available, like rigorous housekeeping and handwashing stations for visitors as well as staff. We’ve also worked hard to convince health authorities to reduce overcrowding and stop the practice of treating patients in

Casino

Bully minister inappropriate

Dear Editor, It is more than a little ironic, and unfortunately, not surprising, that Premier Christy Clark has not spoken up to condemn Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman’s bullying behaviour around the Surrey casino project. Days before the controversial casino vote, Coleman, the Minister responsible for gambling, called some Surrey city councillors with a warning: if they voted no to the proposal, they could forget about a new casino anywhere in Surrey. Completely inappropriate! Ms. Clark has expressed consistent opposition to bullying since her days of a radio announcer at CKNW. Apparently that does not extend to her own minister. By not speaking up, she exposes her hypocrisy and appears to condone the behaviour. Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

hallways, which increases the challenges of infection control. The flu shot is just one part of the toolbox for preventing the spread of illness. Robson should look at the facts before he attempts to malign nurses about it. While our union has always encouraged nurses to get the flu shot, the scientific evidence does not support health authorities in their attempt to use punitive measures to coerce healthcare workers into taking it. Robson should also check the internationally-recognized Cochrane Collaboration before he spews his anti-union rhetoric at nurses. Last fall the Centre for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota wrote that policies aimed at expanding vaccination rates by mandating it for health-care workers are being made on the basis of expert opinion, but without scientifically sound research.

Trans-Pacific Partnership

Deal good for all but Canadians

Dear Editor, The Harper government is poised to ram through without public input yet another piece of legislation demonstrably not in the national interest. It is, however, very much in the corporate interest – a venue for which Harper has increasingly demonstrated his predilection. The Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership is a multilateral free-trade agreement that aims to further liberalize the economies of the Asia-Pacific region. Currently, 13 countries are party to the negotiations, including Canada, the United States, Mexico, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. Under the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, corporations would gain an array of privileges: • Rights to acquire land, natural resour-

ces, factories without government review; • Elimination of risks and costs of offshoring to low-wage countries; • Compensation for loss of “expected future profits” from environmental laws; and • Right to move capital without limits. The TPP will impose a set of extreme foreign investor privileges and rights and their private enforcement through the notorious “investor-state” system. Under this regime, foreign investors can skirt domestic courts and laws, and sue governments directly before tribunals of three private-sector lawyers operating under World Bank and UN rules to demand taxpayer compensation for any domestic law that investors believe will diminish their “expected future profits.” I would strongly suggest that this might be worth a call to your local MP.

Each month in the Times, you can now look for a full page about upcoming events, Council initiatives, and opportunities to engage with the City. We’ve also included sections on some of Council’s strategic focus areas: Community Building & Engagement, Economic Development & Land Use, Transportation, Public Works & Safety,

to let you know that we are working toward our goals to create a better Pitt Meadows. We want your input too! Do you have a non-profit community event, or want to see something featured in City Talks? Let us know by emailing news@ pittmeadows.bc.ca and we’ll do our best to include it.

Citizens are invited to attend Council meetings and Council in Committee meetings each Tuesday of the month. This month’s Council meetings will be held Feb 5 and 19 at 7pm, and Council in Committee meetings on Feb 12 at 6pm and Feb 26 at 3pm. You can also watch online at our website at pittmeadows. bc.ca by clicking on the “Council Meeting Video” link under “Quick Links.”

The City has joined an Intermunicipal Business Licencing Program with nine other Fraser Valley municipalities to allow mobile businesses to operate in more than one municipality by purchasing an add-on to the required base business licence, rather than by obtaining nonresident licences in each municipality in which they operate.

After months of public input and collaboration with Urban Systems Ltd.,the City has released the final report on the Pedestrian and Cycling Master Plan, which will guide the City’s investments into programs and infrastructure that will encourage people to walk and cycle more for work, school, leisure, and dayto-day business.The report is available on the City’s website at pittmeadows.bc.ca.

Council recently voted to expand the Pitt Meadows Community Policing Office. This will allow local officers to start and end shifts in Pitt Meadows rather than travelling to Maple Ridge, and will allow greater RCMP presence and service to the community. For more about these issues, visit our website at pittmeadows.bc.ca.

run a little warm on the best of days, so I won’t mind if the newsroom turns down the heat during this upcoming challenge by Fortis and the Downtown Maple Ridge BIA. And besides, the challenge encourages energy conservation and donations of warm sweaters for charity. Fortis and the BIA are teaming up for the first time for “Turn Down The Heat Week” which will run Feb. 2 to 9. Participating businesses will turn down the heat at work and at home and wear sweaters to help promote energy conservation. Ineke Beokhorst, executive director for Downtown Maple Ridge, said that many businesses already have boxes in their shops to collect warm donations. “It doesn’t have to be a sweater. It could be a toque, gloves, socks, scarves, or even hot chocolate. Anything that keeps people warm,” Beokhorst explained. The BIA will also collect donations. Each business will be taking a slightly different approach to the challenge. For example, T’s on 224th Street will reduce the cost of hot chocolate. And Monkey Business will have a sale on winter clothes. You might be asking yourself, how can my business get involved? Contact the BIA and they will provide promotional materials such as a poster for your window, bag stuffers to hand out leading up to and during the event, a donation box label, and downloadable poster to use on Facebook. During the week of the event, turn down the heat and wear a sweater to show support! Visit www.downtownmapleridge.ca to see a list of the businesses that are already involved.

Couple hopes for ‘economies of scale’ ...continued from page A1

They are hoping to bring together a group of people interested in retrofitting their homes and through economies of scale, bring down the costs significantly. They are organizing a workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 5 with a green company, Now House, at Maple Ridge council chambers. Rowley and Koehn have already added insulation to their home, and this brought down their heating bill considerably. But the next step would be to insulate their basement, thereby making it lose less energy. “I really want to do what’s right but I don’t feel we can do it on our own,” Rowley said. Rowley and Koehn would like to see how uniting could work in Maple Ridge, and especially in their neighbourhood of Hammond. While a focus of zeroenergy technology has been on new homes, Now House has focused on retrofitting older homes, explained Lorraine Gauthier, team leader and project manager with Now House. In Ontario, Now House was able to retrofit a group of 95 houses at a substan-

Leanne Koehn and James Rowley are trying to get a heritage revitalization agreement onto their home and are interested in joining forces with other homeowners to reduce costs in retrofitting their home. tially reduced cost. When Now House did the home retrofits in Windsor, the first house cost $80,000 to fix. Next, they did five houses, and each one cost $45,000 to complete. When they then embarked on a project to retrofit 95 homes – albeit all similar post-SecondWorld-War homes – it cost $15,000 each to renovate. “Based on the work in Windsor there are some basic guidelines that would assist a community contemplating a multi-residential retrofit community

project,” Gauthier said. “A project would require multiple homes in order for suppliers and installers to provide discounts.” But, she added, the homes need to be similar in size and layout, and the project needs the cooperation of local government, utilities, suppliers, builders, trades, and financial institutions. Gauthier suggested the local meeting might be helpful for homeowners, but also for municipal government, utilities, and builders and contractors. While homeowners will

benefit from lower heating bills, government and utilities can achieve conservation, emissions reduction, and job creation goals, Gauthier added. In addition, “suppliers, builders, financial institutions will acquire new knowledge and will gain experience in green building retrofits, which will help them grow their businesses.” The Now House presentation will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Maple Ridge council chambers, 11995 Haney Pl.

When we choose to spend our hard-earned money outside of the community, or online, the positive impact of our personal spending power is lost in one transaction. The greatest benefits of shopping locally come from the effect your dollars have within the community. When you shop with a local small business, you are providing a livelihood to a business owner, who can in turn provide local jobs. When people work and spend within the community, the money circulates, benefiting multiple businesses and contributing to our town’s local tax base which provides services and infrastructure within Maple Ridge. Downtown Maple Ridge business owners are great supporters of local events, charities, teams and causes that keep our community strong and vibrant, but can only do so if their businesses are, in turn, being supported by you! You save on gas – good for the environment AND the pocketbook – and travel time running errands and doing your shopping . A healthy business community, in turn, attracts new businesses, increasing the variety of choices for local consumers – a win-win situation!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity rides a sweet wave; social delights, entertainment, flirtation and light romance fill your days – especially Friday/ Saturday. This is a great time to join a group. Still, your personal clout is beginning to wane slightly, so avoid being forceful, especially in practical or ‘dominance’ contests. Sunday’s for secrets, intimacy, financial ponderings. Someone’s attracted to you Monday/ Tuesday; far travel, school, law and cultfure go well also – after Monday morn. Be ambitious Wednesday: you’ll succeed if you down-tone rebelliousness, opt for communication, affection. Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious, Taurus, especially Friday/Saturday. (This can affect any area – for instance, if you’re buying a condo, buy ‘up.’) Community status, career, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs, are part of the picture. Higher-ups favour you all February – propose plans, projects. Someone wants to be ‘friends,’ but he/she could lead you to compromising situations – he/she’s nervous, assertive. Be diplomatic Sunday. Large finances, sexual intimacy lure you, and succeed Monday noon (not earlier) into Tuesday. Gentle love, learning, law or travel arise Wednesday/Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A gentle, understanding mood continues. Seize this time, this atmosphere: seek love, attend cultural venues, travel afar, attend/apply to a school, seek publishing/media opportunities – especially Friday/Saturday. Tackle routine or non-challenging chores Sunday. Relationships fill Monday/Tuesday – after Monday morning, these links hold opportunities and success. Tell your mate, ‘I want to do this, because it will benefit you.’ Midweek brings sexual urges, financial astuteness, and revealing detective work. Friendships challenge, but wisdom and love bring you luck – and travel?

HOME SERVICES

A29

Cancer June 21-July 22: Secrets and ‘levers of power rise quietly around you, like hillocks on a prairie. This week and next, push steadily forward toward an investment, financial, lifestyle, health or intimacy goal – especially Friday/Saturday, when a new link or opportunity could occur. (But reject any idea or opening that occurs between 10 p.m. PST Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.) Sunday’s for romance, pleasure – but stick with the known. Tackle chores Monday/ Tuesday. Relationships, negotiations, a meeting with someone who makes something deep stir within you, new horizons arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships come front and center over the next two weeks, Leo – especially this Friday/Saturday. ‘Relationships’ includes emotional and practical or business links, new opportunities, fresh horizons (and possible relocation) – co-operation and opposition. Be diplomatic, but eager to join. Approach others, praise others, seek common ground. Sunday’s for domestic rest – nap, love family, turn on that old music. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – singles could meet a future mate prospect. Couples find pleasure. To work, and guard health, midweek. Smile at the world Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Only two weeks left of work and health concerns, Virgo. Might as well plunge into those chores, especially Friday/ Saturday, when a rather significant new task, even new employment, could begin. (Forget resumes: be direct.) Sunday’s restless, not much use. Home chores run into confusion Monday morning (spouse has doubts?) but this p.m. to midday Tuesday offers big steps forward on the home front if you make the effort. Repair, decorate, landscape, prepare kids’ future(s). Romantic and creative urges fill midweek – an incident or alluring person offers a new view of mating.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Games, sports, pleasure, romance, beauty, creativity and self-expression call you – answering will bring luck, especially this Friday/ Saturday. This month could start or further one of the most significant romances of your life. (If you’re married, joy comes from spouse, kids, and adventures – take a family trip.) There is serious love and easy love. Your best ‘mate prospect’ has a load of work lowered onto his/her shoulders: be understanding. Unattached Librans might fall for a co-worker. Spend frugally Sunday. Friends, calls, trips Monday/Tuesday. Home, family Wednesday/Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The main accent this week and next lies on homes, family, security, property, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. (Funny how these last two are linked in many religions and mantic arts.) Friday/Saturday might start a new project or trend in these zones. Get plenty of rest (power naps) and show your family your loving heart. (Unlike January, February spreads a balm of affection through your domicile.) Your energy’s high Sunday: tackle minor problems. Chase money, buy/sell, Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings errands, friends, paperwork, a nd a potentially great investment (a home?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The two weeks ahead are not important, but they sure are active. You’ll call, write, answer, visit, perform errands, paperwork, and perhaps travel. A new venture could start in any of these Friday/Saturday. Earlier, Sunday’s for rest, quiet activities. Your energy and pizzazz soar Monday/Tuesday – start projects, relationships after Monday morning (a confusing time). Make money or shop Wednesday. This day might end one link, begin another; or, after disagreement, bring a stronger love. A new person might develop into loving friendship ‘with benefits’ – even into marriage.

February 3 - 9, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money for the next two weeks, Cap, especially this Friday/Saturday, when a new money-making project could start. (DON’T start it between 10 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday – PST.) Your income luck remains good all month; you’ll have enough to purchase a luxury item. You grow more assertive in communications – that’s good, but don’t overdo it. Sunday’s hopeful, friendly. Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday – approach government or other agencies.Your energy and charm return, buoyantly, Wednesday/Thursday – home frustrates, but work/money please! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, charm and effectiveness reach a yearly high this week and next, Aquarius, especially this Friday/Saturday. If you haven’t yet begun a significant project, do so now. Sunday’s for career and prestige, but nothing’s solid here. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/ Tuesday – a wish could come true. Get out, plan entertainment, join a group – they’ll ‘love’ you. Retreat to catch a second breath Wednesday/Thursday: rest, contemplate and plan. (The best plans might be based on what occurred earlier this week.) Friday/Saturday, chase what/who you want: desire’s lucky. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Continue to lie low, rest, recuperate, contemplate and plan. Your clout in the world is at a low ebb for the two weeks ahead; but your skill and effect in ‘background’ areas is admirable. Background = spirit, charity, government, warehousing, administration, institutions, meditation, yoga, etc. Jump into these, especially Friday/Saturday, when a ‘new note’ (though a slender one) might fill this arena. Sunday’s idealistic, intellectual, mellow. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday. Happiness, hopes for the future, perhaps a light romantic notion, arise Wednesday (watch money) and Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
