Initiative aims to reduce crosswalk injuries and fatalities CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER
elta Police officers and volunteers braved the elements this week to educate the public about pedestrian safety and driver awareness. On a rainy Tuesday (Jan. 31), Ladner Community Police Station volunteers clad in bright yellow waterproof jackets were on hand at the four corners at the intersection of Arthur Dr. and Ladner Trunk Rd. As pedestrians approached the crosswalk—many of them Delta Secondary School students on lunch break—volunteers offered safe crossing tips and handed out reflective wristbands and zipper tags. The pedestrian safety program,
a partnership between Delta Police and ICBC, was scheduled to take place Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 during peak hours at three different intersections: Ladner Trunk Rd. and Arthur Dr., 56th Street and 12th Ave. in Tsawwassen, and 72nd Ave. and 120th St. in North Delta. "Those are big intersections in the Delta community," said Delta Police spokesman Const. Ciaran Feenan, who attended the lunchtime session in Ladner on Tuesday. Feenan said an average of 33 pedestrians are injured and two are killed each year in Delta. Meanwhile, an average 15 cyclists are injured, and none are killed. "Obviously there is some concern for us, and we believe this initiative is going to help us drive down the safest roads in B.C.," he said.
The most recent pedestrian fatality in South Delta occurred in September 2011. A 43-year-old female was struck and killed at Elliott Street and 48th Ave. in Ladner. The intersection of Arthur Drive and Ladner Trunk Road is scheduled to undergo a $4 million makeover this year which is hoped to ease traffic congestion. The project, which will see the demolition of the vacant Kentucky Fried Chicken, includes the addition of several dedicated turn lanes. Ladner Community Police Station Const. John Smith, who was also on hand Tuesday, said he expects the changes to increase driver and pedestrian visibility at the busy thoroughfare.

Delta commits $2M to dredge Ladner Harbour
Man goes missing on Tsawwassen-bound ferry
The Corporation of Delta has agreed to pitch in $2 million towards dredging Ladner Harbour in hopes senior levels of government will also put money on the table. Delta council authorized the contribution on Monday (Jan. 30). The money, available in Delta’s accumulated reserves account, will only be used if the federal and provincial governments agree to additional funding. Local channels around Ladner have been accumulating sediment for more than 20 years. In 1990, Transport Canada stopped its dredging operations and Port Metro Vancouver assumed responsibility for dredging the main navigation channels, but not the secondary channels, of the Fraser River. The estimated cost of the dredging project is $8 million and Port Metro has already committed $2 million.
Delta Police have taken over the search for a man reported missing from a B.C. ferry Sunday afternoon (Jan. 29) that was bound from Swartz Bay to the Tsawwassen Terminal. According to Delta Police, the 51-year-old man was onboard the Coastal Celebration's 11 a.m. sailing with family members, but when the vessel arrived at the Tsawwassen Terminal he could not be located. A search was conducted in the area where the man was believed to have last been seen. Further investigation revealed that a male was observed on surveillance cameras going overboard, prompting a search between Active Pass and the Tsawwassen Terminal for five hours before its was called off at 6 p.m. While the investigation continues, there are no plans to continue searching the waters for the man.

Dental hygienist to the canine community, Tsawwassen's Roz Rickards, with her dog Bianca, says her calm gentle approach to treatments eliminates the need for anesthetics which can be harmful to pets. Philip Raphael photo

Tsawwassen's Roz Rickards delivers a gentle, drug-free brand of pet health
hhhhh. There, there. You're okay. Just relax. Shhhh, shhhhh. good girl." Tsawwassen's Roz Rickards gently brushes back the tight curls of taupecoloured fur on her dog Bianca's head. The one-year-old Lagotto Romagnolo—a truffle hunting breed from Northern Italy—is still a wee bit jittery. It's her first time on Rickard's lap for a teeth cleaning. But she quickly settles in with a few more reassuring strokes, kind words and direct eye contact from Rickards. The words delivered softly—not quite whispered—have the desired effect of those often labeled with the ability to develop a deep and trusting connection between human and animal. Is Rickards a true dog whisperer? She doesn't jump at the opportunity to adopt the moniker, but her business (Sparkle Bark) as a canine dental hygienist who has abandoned the use of anesthetic in favour of a gentle approach seems to work for most of her clients. "Perhaps I am (a dog whisperer). I don't know. I try really hard," she says. "There's something I convey to dogs. They are very sensitive and can pick up on feelings and moods. The trick for me is stay very calm. And I talk them through it. I can feel them melt away and relax." Growing up in New Zealand Rickards says she was always surrounded by ani-
mals. "My dad was also potty about them. We had hens when I was young and I became their friend," she says laughing. Originally trained as an oral surgeon's assistant—for humans—Rickards entered the field for animals five years ago. When she started out it took some convincing to get veterinarians to see the value in such specialized treatment. But when Rickards, using her background in oral health care, was able to also call attention to other oral health conditions her service caught on. Currently, she takes her service to vets across the Lower Mainland, and has clients visit her small Beach Grove surgery. "It's a good working relationship I've developed with a lot of vets, because the whole bottom line is what's best for the dog," she says. Part of that is not relying on drugs to sedate Rickards' patients when a teeth cleaning is needed. "There's no groggy doggies. They walk out of here bright-eyed and bushytailed," she says. "A lot of them actually like having their teeth cleaned." And when the treatment is completed the chance to keep the dog's mouth clean and healthy is improved, which Rickards claims can help extend the lifespan by two to four years. —Philip Raphael

And if getting rid of unneeded items can help provide a keener focus on improving those more meaningful issues it can indirectly increase a person's happiness, Samra adds. But when we are constantly bombarded by the latest "must haves" in our lives, how do we stay the course and live a life to the minimum? "You need to stop and actually write it down—the needs and w a n t s i n y o u r l i f e, given the values you have and the long and short-term dreams you want to achieve," Samra says. "When those are not clear in your head, it's easy to use money for the unnecessar y needs." While a Spartan existence is being sought,

Ladner's Diane Pearson vows to live life to the minimum for the next 12 months PHILIP RAPHAEL EDITOR
he recent Boxing Day sales were a big test for Ladner's Diane Pearson. Could the 41-year-old single mom resist the urge to capitalize on that sure-fire, hot deal being offered in just about every store she saw in the mall? For someone who has pledged to live the next 12 months without buying any unnecessary items—while also ridding her life and home of extraneous goods— the lure of the consumer bargain-fest was a good measure of her resolve. She lasted the "shopping" trip without buying a single thing. And when the calendar rolled over to the new year, her "Stripper Project" was in full gear. "The biggest thing for me is probably to simplify everything in my world," Pearson says. "You get to a spot where there's a lot of stress and chaos in your life and we all do better when that's not around us." While she thought the concept may sound corny to some, she's convinced that having less will simplify and reduce the stress in her life. "There's so much excess. There's so much stuff," she says. "I think that's one of the biggest downfalls in our society. I see people in that mindset of accumulate, accumulate. Spend your money. "We've lost the concept of what enough is." To regain that sense of balance in her life, Pearson asked herself some simple questions as she looked around
her home. "Do I need five whisks and 12 pots and pans for three of us? No, we don't. And there's plenty of other people who could use them. So, to the thrift store they went." Also on the "good riddance" list were many items in the floor-toceiling packed front hall closet which was emptied of shoes her boys had long ago outgrown. Unneeded clothes from her closet were next. The long-term goal? "In nine years when I turn 50, I want to travel. My kids will be 23 and 24. I want to be able to essentially walk away and not be tied down by things," Pearson says. "I want to be able to go for a year and see the world. And this is a step in the process of getting there." Looking back and examining what played a role in prompting the move was the passing of her mother about a year ago. Pearson was tasked with clearing out her home. "My mom, she wasn't a hoarder, but she was on the extreme end of someone who keeps a lot of things." It took months to go through the four bedroom house. "I don't want to leave that for my kids," Pearson says. "I don't want them to grow up thinking that's where their value lies." But in a society conditioned to think having more is better, are we surrendering a form of happiness if we live a minimal life? It doesn't have to be that way, says SFU psychologist Dr. Joti Samra, co-host of OWN's
(Oprah Winfrey Network Canada) reality TV series Million Dollar Neighbourhood. "There are certain things we all need. And people can tend to confound our needs
t h e re w i l l b e b a s i c things Pearson will need to acquire. But she vows to go about it differently by first sourcing secondhand goods rather than making for the closest mall for some recre-
chill," she says. "And that means being able to identify things that mean something to you, rather than just having a quantity of stuff." firstname.lastname@example.org

IlluminatÉ Restorante McKee Cafe manager Velma MacAllister says the recipe for tuna melts is an old one that is popular with the seniors coming in for the regular Thursday lunch service at the McKee Recreation Centre. Quick and easy to prepare, it's packed with protein and great also for young families on the go.
McKee Cafe serve up quick, healthy meals How popular is a good, old fashioned hot lunch sandwich during the chilly winter months? Check out how busy the tables are at the McKee Cafe inside the McKee Recreation Centre in Ladner when on a recent Thursday the rotating menu featured tuna melts.
The cafe can serve up to 150 meals during the 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. rush for those over 50. And those tucking into them appreciate not only their “down home” goodness, but the fact the meal provides a good source of protein, said cafe manager Velma MacAllister.
INGREDIENTS 2 cans of tuna 1 tbsp. mayonnaise 1 bunch of green onions
4 Ciabatta buns Medium cheddar cheese 200g Kraft Tex Mex shredded cheese
DIRECTIONS Drain tuna from both cans and put into a mixing bowl. Add thinly chopped green onions and mayonnaise. Mix. Top ciabatta buns with tuna and place in the
oven—350 degrees F and bake for 10 minutes. Make sure the cheese is melted all the way through. Serve with a salad, soup or French fries. Serves four.

Cleaning up our energy How much longer is B.C. going to rely on imported coal energy from Alberta and Washington to top-up our provincial energy supply? I’m really starting to wonder.

smaller run-of-river projects. Relying on imported coal energy not only places B.C. at the mercy of future energy cost fluctuations, it also gives us the false impression that our provincial energy supply is cleaner than it really is. Just because the pollution and carbon emissions from imported coal energy are generated beyond our provincial borders doesn’t mean we are off the hook for the environmental impacts of burning coal.
Importing dirty coal energy defeats important environmental objectives we have as a society and it goes against the clean hydroelectric tradition of our province. To my mind, if we want our conscience to be clean on the environment, then we should make every effort to ensure that our energy supply is clean too.

Harper may raise the OAS eligibility age from 65 to 67 and make it self-financing. There are a number of problems with this proposal. What is the solution? • Invest in our future by paying families a significant bonus for having babies. • Make adopting children from abroad a lot easier.
• Increase investor, economic and labour immigration. • Give Canadians the option of returning their pension cheques if they don’t need them every month. • Give wealthy Canadians the option of making tax deductible donations to wipe out the debt and deficit. • And make billionaires and the rich pay the same percentage of their income in taxes as someone making $100,000 per year. It's about time for tax fairness.

Time to settle teacher dispute Five months into their job action against the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, teachers seem to be turning the screws tighter in their effort to negotiate a new contract. After essentially working to rule through the first half of the school year, not writing report cards, not attending staff meetings nor performing other administrative duties, teachers are now making more visible displays of their frustration. Burnaby teachers recently held their second “mark-in,” taking tests and papers with them to a mall food court after school was done for the day to show the public how much of their work is done beyond regular school hours. Recently, teachers across the province were urged to wear black, as their way of illustrating a “dark day in education.” The teachers’ choice of date was not insignificant; Jan. 27 was the 10th anniversary of the Liberal government’s enactment of Bills 27 and 28, which stripped their contract of provisions for class sizes and composition. Both sides in the long-running dispute are still at the bargaining table, but there’s little sign of progress. Meanwhile, parents and students are caught in the middle. Without the feedback from proper report cards, parents can’t get a true reading on where their children stand, how they’re progressing, what areas might need remedial help. Students may also be suffering. While it’s hard to dispute the dedication and hard work of the teachers, even in the face of this contract squabble, as the impasse drags on it will be more and more difficult for them to shield their frustration from their classrooms. Both sides say they’re looking out for the future. The teachers say they are fighting for the future of education. The government says it is fighting for the province’s financial future. The time to settle their differences is now. —Burnaby NewsLeader

Watching with care
Bill Vander Zalm to defend autobiography in court
Tips on how to enjoy the abundant wildlife around Boundary Bay
By the Bay
housands of people have been enjoying the snowy owls on Boundary Bay this winter. The number of owls is unusually high, 20 to 30 on the bay and up to nine at Brunswick Point, and the crowds of spectators enjoying them have surpassed all previous records. New to the scene are dozens of photographers sportAnne i n g l o n g - l e n s Murray digital cameras, no longer just the tool of professionals, and the obliging owls have allowed the creation of some magnificent images. Living most of their lives in the Arctic tundra, the owls are unaccustomed to crowds of people. Some are first year birds with perhaps the naïve curiosity of the young. Consequently, a number of owls regularly sit quietly on logs beside the dike, giving everyone wonderful, close-up views. It is wildlife viewing at its easiest. As well as the snowies, there are northern harriers, peregrine falcons, great blue herons, bald eagles and even a short-eared owl to spot from the
same stretch of dike. Hopefully, the snowy owls will have confirmed many people’s interest in watching other local wildlife, for which Boundary Bay is renowned at every season. Several techniques can help reward the patient watcher with memorable moments, and perhaps the photographs to go with them. Here are a few recommendations from experienced naturalists for general wildlife viewing: • Be prepared to quietly wait, as often a bird or animal will approach from curiosity • Conversely, avoid directly moving towards wildlife, which only herds them away • Know where to look; every animal (and plant) has a specific habitat where it thrives best • Visit the right habitat at the right time of year; this is especially important around Boundary Bay which has many seasonal species, migrating through on amazingly punctual schedules • Consult tide tables before a trip to the dike; incoming high tides are often best for birds • Take proper equipment (binoculars, telescope, long lens, field guides) • Never harass wildlife by going too close for a better view or photograph,
and restrain your dog (or leave it at home); dogs are viewed as predators, even if your dog never chases birds • Join a naturalists’ group for a field trip to meet other enthusiasts and have fun! Anne Murray is a local naturalist and author of A Nature Guide to Boundary Bay and Tracing Our Past – A Heritage Guide to Boundary Bay, available at bookstores: see www.natureguidesbc. com.
Former B.C. Premier and longtime Ladner resident Bill Vander Zalm is expected to take the stand in B.C. Supreme Court during a defamation suit based on portions of his autobiography. Released in 2008, the self-published work titled Bill Vander Zalm For the People has drawn the ire of former judge Ted Hughes, who alleges Vander Zalm made libellous statements about him in the book. Hughes was B.C.'s conflict-of-interest commissioner in 1991 and was tasked with examining allegations Vander Zalm used his political influence to help sell his Fantasy Gardens property in Richmond. Hughes ultimately ruled Vander Zalm had breached the government's conflict of interest guidelines which prompted him to resign. At issue is Vander Zalm's suggestion in the book that Hughes based his decision in part to be in line with the opposition NDP. —Staff writer

The month of February is set to be a love-in for supporters of Delta Hospital. And MK Delta Lands Group is helping add some financial incentive to tell the story about your special attachment to the "little hospital that can." During the I Heart Delta Hospital campaign (Feb. 1-29) MK Delta Lands will donate $100 to the Delta Hospital Foundation for every story it receives. Funds will be directed specifically to the foundation's Cardiac Care Fund. It's a fitting tribute to the facility said Joanne Barnett, president of MK Delta Lands who has her own story of how Delta Hospital meets the needs of those passing through its doors. During a past Tour de Delta event Barnett said a visitor of hers was taking in one of the races and became ill. "She went to the hospital and couldn't have gotten better care. She couldn't stop talking about how they treated her, how efficient the staff was," Barnett said. "That's the closest I've had to a personal story, but I've heard plenty of others about the wonderful care the doctors and nurses provide." And over the next three weeks some of the stories received about a facility Barnett sees as the heart and soul of the community will be published in the South Delta Leader. "It's a real testament to Delta's commitment to community to provide the kinds of things that make a community vibrant, livable and sustainable," Barnett said. "That's why we've continued to support the hospital, and will continue to do so." Barnett added she feels Delta is a unique place where the people are not only caring but giving, as well. "They have a community spirit and are invested in where they live, not only from the point of view of giving but in doing," she said. "They turn up

for things, are creative. And it's not just one or two people. It's a community who shows up." Displaying that community pride about its hospital is easy. You can write a story, narrative or poem (500 words maximum) and send it via email to email@example.com. Be sure to use “I Heart Delta Hospital” in the subject line. You can also mail it to 5800 Mountain View Boulevard, Delta BC, V4K 3V6. You can even submit a video—just email a video link to YouTube.com or the file as an attachment. But remember, tell us who and where you are from, and include your full name, mailing address and phone number or email address. Don't have time to write a story? Visit the Delta Hospital Foundation on Facebook or Twitter, become a follower and leave a comment, "like" someone else's, or tweet, and MK Delta Lands Group will donate $5. Full details of the I Heart Delta Hospital campaign, including emailing formats and file sizes, are available at deltahospital.com.
