›INBRIEF Open booze on ferry causeway results in arrest for man Allegedly consuming alcohol in public got a man more than he likely bargained for last Friday (Dec. 16). Delta Police responded to a call on the BC Ferries causeway in Tsawwassen where a group of males had been observed in possession of open alcohol. During the investigation police discovered one of the males had court ordered conditions not to consume alcohol, and was subsequently arrested and escorted back to Delta Police headquarters where he was held for court. —Staff writer

41B St. overpass complete First of nine projects in Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program open to traffic CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER

C

rossing Deltaport Way at 41B Street just got a little bit easier thanks to the completion of a new overpass. Politicians and dignitaries gathered at the Tsawwassen First Nation Recreation Centre Tuesday (Dec. 20) to celebrate the now-finished, $24-million overpass project, jointly funded by the provincial and federal governments, BC Railway Company and Port Metro Vancouver. The 41B Street overpass is the first of nine projects completed in the $307 million Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Program, which aims to better connect Deltaport and Westshore coal terminal with the North American rail network. “It’s yet another step forward as we continue to improve infrastructure, boost our economy and create jobs right here at home while making Canada even more competitive on the world stage,” said Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway. Fast noted that 60 per cent of Canada’s GDP is related to trade, and one in five jobs is generated by international trade. He said completion of the entire rail project will position the West Coast as a “corridor of choice” between Canada and the “highgrowth” Asian markets. And South Delta drivers will also reap benefits.

“At the local level there are over 1,000 people who use this stretch of road on a daily basis—drivers who must wait at traffic lights as trains pass,” Fast said. “While it’s vital that the trains do get through— in fact it’s critical they get through—it’s equally important that people in the local communities are not disadvantaged,” he added. “It’s safer, it reduces congestion and motor vehicle emissions, and this kind of project keeps local business and trade flowing.” Fast added that the 41B Street overpass will allow expansion of the Delta rail yard, and will provide improved vehicle access to TFN lands. “The project, as part of the Gateway improvements, is a critical link in expediting traffic from our centre,” said TFN Chief Kim Baird. “Its construction meshes very well with our development plans.” Mayor Lois Jackson noted the overpass is one of two Roberts Bank Rail Corridor projects located in Delta, the second being the 80th Street overpass in East Ladner, which is scheduled for completion in June, 2012. “With trains increasing in length of over two miles, the traffic delays from the existing at-grade road crossings would become significant,” she said. President of the Delta Farmers’ Institute John Savage spoke on behalf of the local farming community. “We’re pleased that this overpass is

open,” he said. “Agriculture is a key industry in anyone’s life and a lot of people tend to take it for granted.” “We’re thankful for the Gateway program that’s supplying us with a much upgraded irrigation system—we would just like to see it extended to Westham Island,” he added. Savage noted that some Delta farmland has been lost to port development. “But I must say, farmers are very rigorous in their opportunities and we’ll move forward in a positive fashion.” Not all farmers were pleased with the celebration marking the new overpass opening. Ladner farmer and Delta councillor Ian Paton and Ken Bates of Tecarte Farms both declined to attend Tuesday’s event. “I will not be attending the opening ceremony. I regard it as an insult to the farming community,” Bates wrote in an email. “For the last 35 years we’ve been asking for and needing an overpass to safely and efficiently reach our rental lands south of the railroad.” Bates said the overpass has been built not for the good of the farming community, but for access to TFN industrial land. “It is too bad our agricultural minister has been invited to participate in this farce,” he said. “I will not be supporting any function that celebrates the loss of farmland.” reporter@southdeltaleader.com

Several members of the visiting Richmond Sockeyes ice hockey team had items stolen from their lockerroom between periods of Tuesday night's (Dec. 20) game against the Delta Icehawks at the Ladner Leisure Centre. According to a report from Delta Police, an unknown suspect entered the locker-room and stole various items—wallets and cell phones—from inside, and then left the scene. Police members canvassed the area for witnesses with negative results. Icehawks' director of hockey operations, Peter Zerbinos, told the Leader teams are responsible for securing their locker rooms during games, and that this was the first incident of this type he can remember during his time with the club. —Staff writer

DSS teacher back in court in the new year A Ladner high school teacher charged with sexual assault is scheduled to next appear in Surrey Provincial Court Jan. 9, 2012 so his defence can receive particulars of the case from the prosecutor. Robin Wait, 43, is charged with two counts of sexual interference of a person under 16, and two counts of sexual assault stemming from a pair of alleged incidents on Nov. 4 and May 2011. On Nov. 4 Delta Police responded to Delta Secondary School in relation to a report of an alleged sexual assault. Upon arrival, a young girl who was at the school told investigators she had been sexually assaulted by an unknown adult near the school gym. Wait was released on a Bail Recognizance. Under the conditions of his release, he may not contact the victims or witnesses directly or indirectly, and may not seek, obtain or continue any employment or volunteer work that involves being in a position of trust or authority toward persons under the age of 16. Wait has been suspended from his job with pay. —Staff writer

Deltassist hamper program helps feed lowincome families during the holidays CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER

Dozens of elf-like volunteers were busy making lists and checking them twice Tuesday (Dec. 20) in East Delta. Five apples, 10 pounds potatoes, two loaves bread, 10 packs dry noodles, one carton candy canes—the list of edible items went on. Over the course of the day, close to 100 people took shifts at a farm warehouse on 104th Street to help assemble Chr istmas hampers for Deltassist Family & Community Services.

The hampers will be delivered to low-income families and seniors on Christmas Eve. Overseeing the operation was Ladner’s George Koka, chair of the Christmas Hamper Fund, who has been involved with the organization for more than three decades. “It’s a good program, it helps all the Delta people,” he says. Koka surveys the row upon row of packed cardboard boxes, each brimming with dry goods, fresh fruits and vegetables, and canned items.

“You name it, we have about every can you can think of in there,” he says. Before delivery, all hampers will receive the crowning item—a five-to-seven kilogram turkey. Food and monetary donations were provided by individuals, elementary and high schools, local farms, businesses and service clubs. B y Tu e s d a y m i d morning the group of bustling volunteers had already packed up more than 500 hampers. Koka expects to distribute 560 hampers this year, up

Help for women

GBR Service & Gas Ltd

Ladner moms donate care baskets to nearby shelters Ladner resident Pindi Mann used to help make care baskets for women living on the Downtown Eastside, but last year she decided to help out women closer to home. She called on some other Ladner moms and together the group collected enough health and beauty products— like lotion, bodywash, candles, makeup, shampoo and deodorant—to donate 52 care baskets to two residential recovery homes in Surrey. This year the Ladner women outdid themselves, assembling 228 baskets and 45 gift packs to help out seven shelters in Surrey, Whiterock and Vancouver, three residential recovery homes, and the Surrey Women’s Resource Center. "As moms, as women, we always put ourselves last as we are so busy taking care of everyone else. We really wanted to help these moms/ women feel special and pampered during the holidays so that they get a bit of a boost to help them get through this rough patch in their lives," Mann said. She said the response from the South Delta community was overwhelming. After sending one email and one Facebook post, she was quickly flooded with donations. "My guest bedroom was filled top to bottom, front to back and

we could not open the door because of all the donations," Mann said. She and her friends delivered the baskets last Friday (Dec. 16). —Staff writer

hen Tsawwassen’s Benno Bucher gazes out his front living room window at the garden during the Christmas holidays, he can’t help but take a trip back in time. The sight of young children and their families taking in his light display and model Philip train set makRaphael ing the rounds of his home at 5 8 7 5 Va r d o n Place transports Bucher, 59, back to when he was a young boy growing up in Switzerland. “It sort of reminds me of the Christmas store displays we used to have when I was a kid,” he says. “The toy stores and department stores would have them and it was a wonderful thing to go and see.” Among the delights were train sets. “Of course the stores were advertising whatever they were trying to sell, but there was always a train set in the displays,” he says. And since Bucher had his own train set at home, the link with scale model railroading was forged at an early age. Today, his display has about 120feet of G-scale (Garden) train track and three distinct areas featuring

miniature towns. “One features my European background—the Swiss mountains and scenery with a cable car. And then I have more of a regular (North American) kind of community. And then there’s the Wild West. Sort of like a mining village.” Some of the buildings are bird houses given to him by friends. “I also have porcelain houses that are not really meant to be outside, but I do and try to group all of them together to tell a story,” he says. This year, the display is being used as a fundraiser for the Food on the Corner Society, which since 1982 has fed the homeless on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Last year, Bucher, who is a Rotarian, used the display to raise $800 to help support building the Rotary Waterworks water park in Tsawwassen’s Diefenbaker Park. The train display’s lights usually get turned on around 4:30 p.m., and remain twinkling until about 9 p.m. The set will be run and open for public viewing until Dec. 26. “It’s great. I see kids running around in the yard. But you know what, the moms and dads are just as excited about it as the kids,” Bucher says. “I also hear all the time from them, ‘One more time. Can we see the train one more time?’ It makes me feel young again, and brings back a lot of childhood memories. “This is magical, for everybody really.”

Ladner bird count set for Dec. 27

The Leader’s Datebook has you covered.

Area rated tops in Canada for spotting greatest number of wintering species Birders and nature enthusiasts in Delta and South Richmond will join others across the western hemisphere to participate in Audubon’s longest-running wintertime tradition—the annual Christmas Bird Count on Dec. 27. This year, more than 2,000 individual counts are scheduled to take place throughout the Americas and beyond from Dec. 14, 2011 to Jan. 5, 2012. The Ladner Christmas Bird Count is open to birders of all skill levels and each area team needs people who will be drivers, recorders, or spotters. Each of the 12 area teams are led by experienced birders who will work with

the team in identifying all birds seen. The Ladner Christmas Bird Count was started in the mid 1950s and has always been one of the top three counts for bird species seen on count day in Canada. In 2010 the Ladner count was the number one count in British Columbia and tops in Canada with 144 species seen on count day. Generally mild winters and availability of food make Boundary Bay and the Fraser River estuary a major wintering area for many species that spend their summers in Siberia, Alaska and Northern Canada. Count organizers says that for many

birds this is south with the area tallying the highest number of wintering species in Canada for raptors (hawks, eagles, owls, and falcons), shorebirds and waterfowl. Following the day’s count the teams will gather at the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary on Westham Island for a hot supper, to share details of rare or unusual birds seen, and to participate in the daily tally of species. Those interested in participating in the Ladner Christmas Bird Count can contact the count coordinator Jude Grass at 604-538-8774, 604-219-2043 or by email at judegrass@shaw.ca. —Staff writer

All female Delta Rotary Club presidents praise Operation Red Nose They call themselves the "L-Divas" and they are a "can-do" trio in Delta. The "L" refers to the fact Leslie Abramson, Linda Ottho and Lornell Ridley all have first names that start with the same letter. Another aspect that links them is the fact they are each president of local Rotary Clubs—Ottho in Ladner, Abramson in Tsawwassen, and Ridley in North Delta. And with that shared sense and commitment to service comes the support for one of the community's most embraced charitable programs— Operation Red Nose. The volunteer service provides a safe ride home for drivers, passengers and their vehicle during the holiday season. "Operation Red Nose has been doing this wonderful service for 10 years in Delta," says Abramson. "Since the beginning Rotary has been involved, putting up signs, sharing their auction signs, and being a financial sponsor." All three Rotary Clubs believe if you are going to drink be responsible, she adds. "So they (Operation Red Nose) spend many many hours volunteer-

ing as drivers to make sure that Delta citizens get home safe and sound." Throughout the month of December the Leader has focused its Local Flavour feature on ORN and its supporters who have shared a recipe for a non-alcoholic beverage. In this edition, the "L-Divas" suggest a baby Bellini. To arrange a ride with Operation Red Nose, call 604-943-0460. The service is available between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. on New Year’s Eve. Clients must have a vehicle to use ORN. Donations are greatly appreciated, but not required. And all proceeds will help to buy equipment for the Delta Sport Development Centre.

mouth of the Fraser River, it sinks beneath the overriding fresh water from the Fraser, the Nicolmekl, and the Serpentine Rivers. A wedge of saline water can be found in the sandy subsoil deep beneath the fertile fields of the lower delta, but fresh water rides on top of it and forms the upper water table that nourishes the agricultural lands. In the summer Delta allows river water to enter through flap gates in the dikes for farmers to use for irrigation purposes. This water

can be brackish, since a salt water wedge does move upstream during low river flows. This can be an issue for farmland irrigation, but Delta is now taking steps to improve pumping and fresh water supply to counter the problem. Certainly the false assertion of “brackish land” is not an excuse for Port Metro Vancouver, the TFN, or anyone else, to despoil some of the best agricultural land in Canada.

taxpayers' expense. While the Municipality of Delta might claim there is nothing they can do, I disagree. They should continue to voice their opposition to these meters on our behalf, just like numerous other municipalities have done and continue to do. In mid-November, Richmond City Council voted unanimously to support the moratorium and opted out on Smart Meters. I am tired of this (Delta) mayor and council saying there is nothing they can do for us. They can and they should continue to work for us and when taxpayers ask them to work on their behalf. I expect the mayor and council to follow up on these requests. Thousands of people across B.C. have written the Liberal gover nment opposing this program and as usual this current

EDITORIAL

Turf tussle Despite Delta’s recently stated preference for Ladner’s Dugald Morrison Park as the site for South Delta’s third synthetic turf field, hopefully the plea by Delta Secondary School’s parent advisory council to consider their location will still be heard. That’s because DSS is a good place to lay down a plastic pitch—for a number of reasons. First of all a revamped facility at DSS is conveniently located near Ladner Village and surrounding neighbourhoods that would provide a host of users—from teenaged athletes to seniors. It’s close to public transit. And if enough additional money can be found, a revitalized running track circling a new sports field could re-invigorate the community’s interest in getting active—an ideal most progressive societies are chasing these days amidst dire warnings concerning obesity in adolescents, and a health care system braving itself for a wave of baby boomers in need of care. While there are unresolved issues over how use of a new turf field at DSS could be fairly divided between the community and school district, those details would surely not be insurmountable. What that potential tussle for turf time would show is the high demand such a school location would create—a situation which should be a big plus for the community. It would mean the facility would be serving a steady flow of users, from daily school use to evening and weekend activities by community-based groups. Talk about getting bang for your local taxpayer’s buck. Think about that the next time you pass the often vacant artificial turf fields at Winskill Park and Holly Park during the daytime. And think of the potential economic spinoffs for the local economy. Build it and they will come with their kids, buy a coffee, eat lunch in a local restaurant and perhaps come back and shop at another date.” If there is not enough money to build fields at both Dugald Morrison Park and DSS, so be it. But the opportunity cost not to do so could be significant—not only in what might be lost in terms of straight economic gain to the community, but in how this could lead to other projects that could benefit from the combined heft of both school district and municipality to get things done. Hopefully the current reluctance to view the DSS site as plausible is not simply a bureaucratic turf war. It’s time to play nice and give the idea another look.

A 'paws' for Christmas Delta Community Animal Shelter staff and volunteers ake time out to spread cheer of the season take PHILIP RAPHAEL EDITOR

T

he old saying goes that every dog has its day. In Delta, the same can also be said for the cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and any other critters who find themselves at the Delta Community Animal Shelter (DCAS). And the special day in question is Dec. 25. That's when staff working Christmas Day, and a host of volunteers, make the biggest holiday of the year as special as possible with treats, decorations and plenty of hugs and kind words for those who lack a proper, full-time home. "We try everyday to make it like Christmas here," says DCAS shelter manager Sarah Lowe. "We try and spoil the animals all the time. But at Christmas it's really nice because we are closed to the public. And we have volunteers who come in and try and make the day that much more special." Preparations for the day are often made early in the month thanks to shelter supporters and animal lovers dropping off items—usually anonymously. Special donations "We had a donation of a whole bunch of turkey-flavoured cat food. So, we were able to give the cats turkey dinner last Christmas, which was probably the coolest thing ever," says Melanie Belanger, an animal care attendant at the shelter who has worked the past three Christmas days, and who will be on duty again this year. "Our front gates were closed, but they left the bags with a little, unsigned note that said, 'No cat should be without turkey at Christmas time.'" "The generosity of the public is truly incredible," adds Lowe. "It's nice to know that even though they (shelter animals) may not be wanted in somebody's home, they're not forgotten." While the doors to the shelter in the Tilbury area may be officially closed, the place is awash with activity each Dec. 25 with dog-walking, cat grooming, and distribution of gifted foods. "We get lots of people (volunteers) who come routinely every single year. We have a gentleman who drops off m a r row b o n e s, c o o k e d bones from the butcher. We have another woman who

donates canned cat food," says Lowe. One of the volunteers looking forward to her first Christmas Day at the shelter is Ladner's Danika Midtdal. Midtdal, 37, who in January marks her first anniversary as a shelter volunteer, is planing to spend a couple of full days at the facility between Christmas and New Year's doing whatever needs to be done on site. "During the holidays when

‘It's nice to know that even though they (shelter animals) may not be wanted in somebody's home, they're not forgotten.’ — Sarah Lowe

the shelter is closed (to the public) there's a chance to get done the extra stuff—the cleaning, paperwork and other stuff. And I do that quite often, if I have an extra day, I'll come in and help out." Midtdal says her motivation comes from not being able to keep a cat in her small home. She also uses the time at the shelter as a way of relaxing. "I love coming here," she says. "It's pretty amazing for me, because no matter how bad my day has been I come here and I say to myself, 'It's all good now.' I kind of decompress, and it's all good." She also is buoyed by the fact the DCAS has a no-kill policy. "I love how kind they are here," Midtdal says. "I don't think everyone necessarily knows that they are so kind to the animals, and so concerned with their welfare. I always say that this is my happy place. Even if I'm cleaning up poop, washing dishes, or doing whatever, I feel like I'm contributing. That's why I volunteer. I just want to do something to help these animals because in a lot of cases they are not in their 'forever' home yet." A giving time Christmas is generally a

time of giving, and for animal lovers that sense of generosity is certainly extended to the DCAS. "Everyone wants to give at this time of year, right," says Belanger. "Everyone is trying to find a reason, or a way to give back to the community. And homeless animals are probably one of the best ones because they have nothing other than the four walls around them, and whatever we can give them." To help make the stay at the shelter more pleasant the extra attention from staff and volunteers goes a long way. So does the donation of much-needed items. Lowe says there are some local organizations that make a point of donating large quantities of food and toys prior to the big day. Others simply give money out of the kindness of theirn hearts. "We had a woman come in a few days ago who can't have a cat where she lives, but she's always wanted one," Belanger says. "So, every year she comes down and donates $300 to the (shelter) cats and says the money can be used for anything we need. She just really wants the cats to have a bit of special care." "That's great," Lowe says, "because donations from Christmas time help stock us for the rest of the year. Christmas is a huge help for us." While the shelter's wish list can be long, one of the most needed items is kitten food. "And the dogs always need chews because they can get bored, even though they get out lots for walks," Lowe says. "Our shelter is good for that because we have so many volunteers." She adds that in the past year at the shelter the 150 or so listed volunteers provided in excess of 3,500 hours of their time. 'Magical' day And while just a handful make their way on Dec. 25 to the shelter—which has a new site nearby where ground is expected to be broken sometime in 2012—the day is made "magical" for the animals and their human friends. "Everyone is a little more jolly, for lack of a better word, on Christmas Day," Belanger says. "And I find that goes to the animals as well." Aside from the opportunity to go for a walk the shelter staff try and have the

dogs spend some play time together. "We're a little more relaxed during the Christmas season. Everyone is a little more 'lovey' and the dogs even seem to be a little calmer," Belanger says. "A lot of cats can also become anxious. Some will get a little depressed. So, we'll jot their names down and tell the volunteers to spend some extra time—take along a brush and some extra treats and sit with them," Lowe says.

atching the best young players on the planet battle it out on TV at the World Junior Ice Hockey Championships each holiday season was a tradition in Brendan Gallagher's household. Now, the 19-year-old Tsawwassen hockey sensation will be living that experience on the ice after being named to Team Canada's roster last week. In an interview from Banff, Alberta following a Team Canada practice, Gallagher told the South Delta Leader he was thrilled with the opportunity to lace up his skates for his country and do his best to bring home the gold medal from the 10-team tournament which starts Dec. 26 in Edmonton and Calgary. "It's one of the most exciting things to happen to me in my hockey career so far. And a lot of people have put a lot of work into me," he said. "Coaches, parents, teachers—a lot of people have helped me along the way. And I'm very thankful to all of them." Gallagher added that when he was named to the 22-player roster he couldn't help but think of those who have contributed to his success so far in the game. "You try to share it with them as much as you can. But you kinda get over it pretty quickly because you have to get back to work since this is a short tournament."

Gallagher said he feels his versatility is one reason he made the Team Canada lineup which is overseen by his WHL Vancouver Giants head coach, Don Hay. "I can play in just about any situation and I'm obviously very willing to do it," he said. "There's no bad role on Team Canada and everyone needs to contribute to win and whatever they need me to do, I'll do it." Gallagher, who this fall signed an entry level contract with the Montreal Canadiens after being selected by them in the fifth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, said he knew he had a shot at making the Team Canada lineup. "You've got to be confident coming into camp. I felt that if I did everything I knew I could do I would be on the team. But that said, there's a lot

of good players here so you're never too sure," Gallagher said. "It took a lot of hard work. And once you're on the team the only focus is to win the gold medal." Asked how the World Juniors experience may help his game—currently he's the Giants leading scorer with 22 goals and 24 assists in 28 games— Gallagher said the level of competition from opposing teams and the intense atmosphere should pay dividends. "You're playing against the world and there's great competition and any time you match yourself up against the best players your age it can be pretty exciting," he said. "And that's only going to help my game." He got that off to a good start Monday night (Dec. 19) when he scored a goal late in the third period to ice Canada's

3-1 exhibition game win over Finland in Calgary. Gallagher added that he's long dreamed of pulling on the Canadian jersey at the tournament. "It's a huge tradition for this country and to be able to represent Canada is a really big step. As players we're really well aware of it and looking forward to it." Canada's first game in the tournament is against Finland Dec. 26 at Rexall Place in Edmonton. Game two goes Dec. 28 against the Czech Republic. Then it's on to face Denmark on Dec. 29 and a final game in the opening round against the USA on Dec. 31. The gold medal game is scheduled for Jan. 5 at the Saddledome in Calgary. editor@southdeltaleader. com

It is a pleasure to showcase the work of all those who contributed their hard work to this great display of creativity and seasonal sentiment which helps complement the Christmas messages from local business. A very Merry Christmas to all from the staff at the South Delta Leader.

Freddie Matthews of Barriere was admitted to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops on November 12, 2011, suffering from esophagial hemorrhaging precipitated by liver failure. He passed away on December 7, 2011. Freddie was born in Vancouver, B.C., on July 24, 1952. He attended school in Ladner through grade 12, then UBC where he majored in business administration; he was a good athlete playing football, baseball, and hockey to Junior A level, while living on the family farm in Delta. Freddie and his younger brothers Marty, Carey, and little sister Lori had registered Welsh Ponies, showing them at the PNE, and also ran chariots and chuckwagons at Pony Association events throughout B.C. and Washington State. In his travels Freddie enjoyed Alaska, Africa, the United States and Mexico.

His favourite song was ‘Mothers Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys’, and favourite hymn ‘Amazing Grace’. Through the years that followed Freddie drove the stage coach at Barkerville, was a big game guide in Northern B.C. and the Yukon, was an instructor at a camp in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta training British Army soldiers to ride horses, plus packing and gun use while finding their way around in the wilderness. Freddie owned and operated a Kenworth highway truck coast to coast hauling general cargo for a few

years, and operated a grain farm in Neville, Saskatchewan, from 1993 to 1997 for a family friend who was disabled by a heart attack. Then he bought a ranch in the Peace Country at Sunset House, Alberta, where he had a bison herd of up to 400 head in partnership with his father. The ranch was sold for health reasons in 2005 and Freddie returned to Barriere. Freddie is survived by Aunt Margaret Gidinski of Kamloops, brothers Martin (Robin) and nieces Jaclyn, Krista, Melanie, of Surrey, B.C., Carey (Kathy) and Jesse (son of Lorie, predeceased) of Edmonton, Alberta, step-sister Arlene Ladd (Stephen) and step-brother Richard Woods (Heather) of Chilliwack, B.C. “God Speed and all our Love Cowboy,” The Matthews Family. There will be no service.
