Mountie to stand trial Benjamin 'Monty' Robinson to face obstruction of justice charge CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER


he RCMP officer involved in a fatal Tsawwassen crash in October 2008 is scheduled to stand trial next week. Cpl. Benjamin "Monty" Robinson is charged with obstructing justice in relation to a collision that killed 21-year-old Orion Hutchinson. The trial is expected to begin Monday (Feb. 13) in New Westminster Supreme Court. Robinson was off duty when his Jeep collided with Hutchinson's motorcycle at Gilchrist Dr. and 6 Ave. Robinson allegedly left the scene of the incident and walked to

his home nearby, where he claimed to have consumed two shots of vodka to calm his nerves before returning to the crash site. According to Delta Police, Robinson's breath samples gave readings of .12 and .10 mgs of alcohol. Delta Police recommended charges of impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death. A coroner's toxicological analysis also reported alcohol in Hutchinson's blood. The Criminal Justice Branch of the Ministry of the Attorney General did not lay any driving-related charges against Robinson. Senior prosecutors with the branch concluded the available evidence did not establish proof beyond a reasonable doubt that

DPD officer frees driver

Delta Police are reminding drivers to be careful on possibly slick roads, especially during the early morning and late evening hours following a pair of crashes. On Feb. 5 the driver of a Kia sedan was rescued from her vehicle by an off duty member of the DPD who saw the car submerged in a water-filled ditch along the 8000 block of Ladner Trunk Rd. The driver did not sustain any injuries, but was suspected of being impaired. Following medical clearance by BC Ambulance personnel, the driver was transported to DPD Headquarters to provide a breath sample and was issued a driving suspension and 90-day driving prohibition. In the second incident on Feb. 4, the driver of a Toyota Corolla was seen by a witness lose control of their vehicle in the 4800 block of Arthur Dr. at around 8:13 a.m., hit a telephone pole and end up in a ditch. The driver, who was extricated from the car by Delta Fire and Rescue members, sustained numerous injuries.

Robinson had a blood alcohol level over the legal limit at the time of the collision, or that his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by alcohol, or that he was operating his vehicle in a dangerous manner. The charge of attempting to obstruct justice is based on alleged actions of Robinson after the collision. One Facebook group dedicated to denouncing Robinson is asking its members to show up at the court house next week wearing motorcycle jackets. Robinson was also among the RCMP members involved in the taserng death of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in 2007.

Mayor sets sights on the tunnel

Delta's mayor wants improvements to the George Massey Tunnel soon, before several aggravating factors make tube travel nearly impassable. With tolls being implemented on Fraser River crossings, a new South Fraser Perimeter Road, and additional berths being constructed at Deltaport, Mayor Lois Jackson is concerned the George Massey Tunnel is going to become an even bigger traffic nightmare in years to come. Last month, Jackson asked engineering staff to prepare a report on possible impacts to traffic in the coming years. She anticipates dramatic increases in volume. Staff will perform a cursory study and draw up some terms of reference for a private consultant to explore all anticipated problems and potential solutions. Jackson anticipates the consultants study will cost about $60,000. Then Delta can take that document to senior levels of government and make the argument for capital improvements to the tunnel.

Paterson Park land for sale


Honey Maple Solidwood Kitchen Cabinets

No demand for campus in South Delta, Kwantlen says CHRISTINE LYON REPORTER

The Corporation of Delta isn’t jumping at the chance to purchase the other half of Paterson Park in Ladner. “It would love to be able to say ‘Yes, it would be nice to have the whole parcel.’ But we have so many needs at the moment and I don’t think there’s an appetite to increase the tax roll to purchase the land,” said Mayor Lois Jackson. “It would be lovely to have it as municipally-owned land, but I think we have to be very careful about our tax bill.” Kwantlen Polytechnic University has owned part of the land at Highway 17 and Ladner Trunk Road since 1993 when it purchased it from the Delta Agricultural Society, but the school has now decided to give up its share. “The (Kwantlen) board of governors has authorized the university to sell its Paterson Park property so that it can be put to use by the new owner for the benefit of South Delta,” said Kwantlen spokesperson

Joanne Saunders. Kwantlen owns just under half of the site—a little less than 10 acres. The Corporation of Delta owns the rest. Saunders said the university’s original intention was to build a campus in Delta but, since purchasing the land, the number of students graduating from high schools in South Delta has declined. “In the view of the university’s board of governors and its administration, there isn’t sufficient demand to justify the development of a fifth campus,” Saunders said. “The university will do everything it can to ensure that the historical importance of the site is respected and preserved for South Delta residents in general and members of the Delta Agricultural Society in particular,” she added. Saunders said the eventual purchaser of Kwantlen’s land will have to apply to the Corporation of Delta for a change in zoning and for a development application. The future use of the land will be determined by the owner and the Corporation of Delta after public consultation.

Independent schools top list Fraser Institute rankings do not provide overall picture of public education in Delta, says school board chair PHILIP RAPHAEL EDITOR

South Delta's independent schools led the way in the recent edition of the Fraser Institute's annual ranking of B.C.'s elementary schools. Released this week, the list has three in the top 100 of the 860 schools on the list. Tied for first with a number of schools was Tsawwassen's Southpointe Academy. The next to appear was Ladner's Sacred

Heart School which slipped nine spots from last year to a ranking of 54th. And in 90th spot was Delta Christian School. The highest ranked Delta public school was Cliff Drive Elementary which came in 203rd spot. The rankings are based on Foundation Skills Assessment tests written annually by students in Grades 4 and 7. Dale Saip, Chair of Delta's Board of Education said the rankings are not reflective of the

overall education picture in Delta schools. "We have really good schools," Saip said. "And I think if you talk to the ministry (B.C.'s Ministry of Education) and look at our results as far as our graduation rates, our Aboriginal graduation rates, our consistent teaching practices, our leading edge in technology, we have very good schools and are committed to making sure all of our kids do what they're supposed to do and learn what they're supposed to learn."

BC JoBs Plan: Technology Technology is a fast-growing sector of the B.C. economy. The industry is a magnet for highly educated professionals attracted to world-class high-tech clusters including the life-sciences, digital media and wireless, information and communications technology, ocean sciences and motion picture production. The average wage of $63,440 is more than 52% above the average for all jobs in British Columbia, which makes this sector even more attractive to job seekers. In 2009, the high-tech industry provided 84,000 jobs with a total salary bill that added up to $5.3 billion, up from $4 billion in 2007. The job growth will continue, with a projected 57,000 technology jobs opening by 2019, and an annual growth rate of 2.2%. British Columbia attracts global technology leaders, including Pixar, Disney, Boeing, MDA, Microsoft, Sierra Wireless, SAP, Dolby Canada, and Intel. These major technology companies look for a stable economy with a supply of experienced employees and a supportive government. British Columbia has both. It helps that the University of British Columbia is rated No. 1 in terms of technology licensing, an indicator of a high level of success and a culture that nurtures innovation. Who was it that said ‘necessity is the mother of invention’? The answer could be Alexander Fernandes, previously of Qimage. After his Burnaby plant was broken into, Fernandes invested in what was presented as the top of the line video surveillance equipment – which in reality didn’t produce enough clarity to identify the intruders the next time it happened. At that point, Fernandes realized he knew all about imaging and knew he could do much better. Fernandes sold his company, Qimage, for a very healthy $20 million and started a new company called Avigilon with just two employees. The objective of this new venture was to up the caliber of surveillance systems to the highest possible standard. Now seven years later Avigilon is considered an industry leader. This Metro Vancouver company has created the highest-resolution cameras in the industry, backed up by cutting-edge software, using the provincial government’s small business venture capital programs to raise nearly $7 million to help fund research and development. To say this company is a huge success is putting it mildly. Avigilon has more than 10,000 systems installed in over 80 countries around the world, including schools, sporting venues, car dealerships, malls, trains and airports. A direct benefit is the 150 jobs created, with 75 of those located here in the Lower Mainland, plus a sales force scattered around the world selling Avigilon systems as fast as the Richmond plant can produce them. And they are not finished yet. The company is expanding fast, hiring an average of three or four people a month and attending university career fairs to attract top talent. The future is very bright for this company whose principal turned a problem into an idea and then into a very successful company. A healthy high-tech sector also attracts investors who are impressed by the industry’s performance. Revenues have more than tripled in the decade leading up to 2007, and were up another 4.4% by 2009, to $18.9 billion. Currently, investors receive a 30% refundable tax credit,

supporting up to $100 million in investment every year. The provincial government, seeing the role they can play in this fast growing sector, will increase the value of this program by $3 million, allowing more individuals known as ‘angel investors’ to put their own capital directly into eligible small business, and to offer strategic expertise. B.C. firms attracted more than 19% of Canada’s venture capital investments in 2010, with B.C. the top province in life sciences venture capital investments. High technology wears many hats. The BC Cancer Agency is a world leader in cancer research, and B.C. is North America’s third-largest centre for film and TV production, averaging $1.2 billion in spending per year, 80% of which is foreign money. The global entertainment and media industry is expected to grow by five per cent a year to 2014, when it will hit $1.7 trillion. B.C. is well positioned to take advantage of this growth. The high-technology industry is not an island. This sector supports B.C.’s entire economy by helping other industries become more innovative, productive and globally competitive. Digital media and interactive gaming technologies are being used in education, agriculture, mining and health care. Other impacts are more global. With an estimated 5.3 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide – India and China added 300 million subscribers in 2010 alone – the demand for digital, wireless and screen-based entertainment is immense. These two countries, India and China, are undergoing mass movements to urbanization, which also gives B.C. opportunities to offer them clean, efficient energy, waste reduction and health-care solutions. B.C. is perfectly aligned to supply a healthy portion of this demand in the coming years. Airplane sales around the world are expected to reach $US3.6 trillion over the next 20 years to replace aging planes and expand fleets, providing opportunities for our advanced manufacturing sector. Plus, as a climate change leader, we are at the forefront of renewable energy technology development. Finding new markets for our solar, wind, biomass and other technologies can help turn B.C. into a cleantech powerhouse. As Canada’s Pacific Gateway, B.C. is strategically located to reach growing global markets. In addition, B.C. is close to technology and entertainment hubs in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and Seattle. Under the BC Jobs Plan, the provincial government will work with the federal government to meet our workforce needs and expedite the immigration process for researchers and scientists in other parts of the world who want to bring their expertise to British Columbia. B.C.’s fast-tracked immigration process through the Provincial Nominee Program encourages firms to locate in B.C. so they can hire experienced business immigrants. The B.C. government’s focus on this sector, identified as one of the eight key sectors with the greatest opportunity to bring new dollars into our economy from our most important trading partners, helps nurture an industry that has immense potential to accelerate growth throughout the province.

New Thrifty Foods manager Grace MacInnes focuses on customer and community service


hen she was attending Brookswood Secondary School in Langley, Grace MacInnes had mapped out a future in teaching. Today, the newly appointed manager of the Tsawwassen Thrifty Foods store says that goal still lives on more than 20 years later—except that instead of imparting knowledge amid desks and chalk boards she has aisles of products, a staff of around 170, and a loyal customer base who see the store as more than just a place to get their groceries. MacInnes got into the grocery business while still in high school and originally viewed it as a way to fund her university aspirations. "But the (grocery business) money back then was better than what the teachers were making, to be honest, so I just kept going and moved into management and never really looked back," MacInnes says as she tours one of her favourite places in her store— the produce section, for its variety of interesting products. MacInnes adds she enjoys her role today which allows her to "teach" in a different way. "That part of it, I still feel I have found a way to be able to share knowledge, which is neat." An employee with Thrifty Foods for

the past six years, MacInnes says she likes the unique nature of the Tsawwassen store, which has the distinction of having the highest sales volume of the four based in the Lower Mainland. "What's kind of unique about Thrifty Foods is that we do really give a lot to the community," she says, adding the difference at her location is that decisions are made at the store level which allows closer interaction with the community. That, in hand with a strong focus on customer service, means the store plays a broader role than just being a place to shop. "I really enjoy people and conversing. There's a lot of seniors who come in here and get their coffee every day. And this is like a social setting for them," she says. "Just getting to meet the people who come in every day is neat. It's what helps build a community." MacInnes has committed herself to undertake a high profile in the community, following in the footsteps of previous store manager Andy Carter who, she estimated, spent about half of his work time connected to various local groups and causes. "Andy did a very good job of that. And I need to make sure I carry that on." —Philip Raphael ®

Adding to certainty Annuities can be part of retirement planning


here’s been a lot of government talk and flying of trial balloons recently concerning the future of your OAS pension. As it is 2012 ushered in changes to CPP. The leading edge of the baby boomer cohort has entered their midsixties. The possibility of reduced government pension income or a longer waiting period coupled with financial market gyrations are adding to retirement planning anxiety. Even though interest rates are at

generational lows, providing certainty to your retirement income stream means you should be taking a closer look at annuities. Buying an annuity for your retirement requires careful thought and consideration, but for some people it is the right choice. An annuity is an investment made forever and that becomes its chief appeal for some investors and its major drawback for many others. Annuities are insurance contracts

or policies where the buyer pays a single lump-sum premium up front in return for a guaranteed income payment, usually for the life of the buyer, or for a term certain number of years. There are single life policies and for couples, joint and last survivor annuities that continue until the survivor dies. Special conditions or “riders” attached to the annuity can give the buyer inflation protection. It is also possible to have a guaranteed payout period, say 20 years, so if the buyer dies within that period, payments will continue to be made to a named beneficiary. The prevailing interest rates at the time of purchase will determine the

payout calculation as will the age and sex of the buyer. For most annuity buyers the sizable premium needed to generate income that matches their retirement needs is substantial. For that reason most investors will look at annuities as a part of their personal retirement strategy. Depending on age, sex and policy conditions, a $100,000 single life annuity might generate an income ranging from around $500 to over $750 a month. An annuity can add a solid foundation of income certainty. When combined with CPP and OAS most or all of a household’s fixed expenses could be covered. Retirees can then rely on

other income sources for their variable expenses, using their RRSP, RRIF or TFSA for additional income. We are living longer, government pension changes loom for the boomers and worries about savings and investments are all causing concern for those approaching retirement. For all of these reasons an annuity might fit into your overall retirement planning strategy.

Marking time

Delta's museum building celebrates a century What a difference a century makes? Back in 1912, Delta’s municipal hall was the dominant building located at a busy crossroads in the heart of Ladner Village in what now houses the Delta Museum. Today, it still proudly stands in the centre of town, but the rest of the village and surrounding areas have grown up and filled in. According to Mark Sakai, executive director of the Delta Museum and Archives, the building was quite a landmark for its time and a big step up from the previous site where Delta Council met. In April 1912 Delta Council approved

the $15,000 project and it was finished and put into use for a council meeting on Nov. 29, 1912. To help mark the building’s centenary, the museum currently has a display called Prolific Delta which highlights the events of 1912. For an insight to what eating and cooking habits were like a century ago, staff at the museum found a recipe clipping from the era that shows times have certainly changed in terms of healthy cuisine. According to the Delta Times newspaper from June 1, 1912, fried spring chicken was a favourite treat.

Fried chicken INGREDIENTS 1 small chicken Salt Pepper Flour DIRECTIONS To fry the chicken, cut small chicken in four or six pieces, dip each piece hastily in cold water, then sprinkle with salt and pepper and roll the pieces in plenty of flour. Have some sweet lard heated very hot in a frying pan and fry the chicken until each piece is of a rich brown hue on both sides. Take up, drain well and arrange the pieces on a warm platter, setting the dish in a hot place to keep the meat from cooling while the gravy is being made.

Sweet lard (unsalted lard) Milk Butter Parsley (chopped) Pour out of the pan one cupful of the fat and stir into the pan one cupful of milk. When the liquid is hot and well stirred, thicken to a rich cream with one tablespoonful of flour rubbed in smooth and one tablespoon of butter. Boil two or three minutes, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper. A little chopped parsley is often added to the gravy. Butter if here used in place of lard is difficult to manage, as it burns so easily.

Heart health awareness low for women Heart disease and stroke will take one in three Canadians before their time, and is the leading cause of death for women—more than all cancers combined. The Heart and Stroke Foundation is under taking even greater action this February—Heart Month—to raise awareness and catalyze Canadians to take action and take charge of their health, both nationally and in our local communities. It is my privilege to be the inaugural holder of the UBC Heart and Stroke Foundation P r o f e s s o r s h i p i n Wo m e n’s Cardiovascular Health. I would like to thank the Foundation for their vision in funding

a sunny day with snow on the mountains was surpassed by the fantastic service, gourmet meals and exceptionally friendly greetings given to us by the crew. The Via transcontinental is a jewel few people realize what we have and are in danger of losing. Happy hour in the Park Car at the rear of the train consisted of a free glass of champagne and live entertainment by a young singer playing her guitar that Via hired to add a little dressing to an already rewarding experience. In the evening she played in the forward dome car for the coach passengers. Later, she

encouraged other musicians to jam. There were movies ever y night, as well. I talked to a young fellow who frequently travels from Ontario to Alberta and had never taken the train before. He said he would never travel any other way from now on. Most Canadians don't seem to know what a jewel we have and therefore don't care whether we lose it or not. I d o, a n d I t h i n k m o r e Canadians should give it a try the next time they want a real good time crossing.

this unique professorship for women’s heart health. My current work is focused on young women; those 55 years of age and younger. I believe this is an important demographic to study. While the proportion of young adults having a heart attack remains constant, the proportion of women has increased over the past few years. And the likelihood that they will experience another heart attack, or suffer significant functional deficits or die remains significantly higher than their young male counterparts. We also know that they have a poorer health status at the time of their cardiac event and their recovery does not appear to be as quick or as complete as that of younger men. Indeed, the outcomes of these

young women are now more like those of older adults. With the funding for this professorship, we will expand on this work with a view to not only understanding the reasons for this difference, but also to affect system changes to improve outcomes. This February you have 29 days to help make death wait.

A gateway opportunity With the "for sale" sign about to be put up on Kwantlen Polytechnic University's portion of Paterson Park, now is the time for Delta to step up and seize this gateway for the community. The land at the busy intersection of Highway 17 and Ladner Trunk Rd. would serve as a fabulous focal point and impressive showcase for all things South Delta. Once the home of a horse racing track, having it entirely under the control of the municipality could allow a variety of heritage and recreational opportunities that define the area. Coupled with the revitalization plans for Ladner Harbour, it has the potential to form a potent one-two that could attract visitors and business investment to the area. Simply letting it go to a developer for residential or commercial uses would be a shame of great proportions. While some developers will likely talk a good game of how they'd incorporate some valued historical and public amenities to their project at Paterson Park, such promises all too often don't seem to pan out in the way their artist's conceptual plans depict. The scale of the project is often misleading, and the amenities can all of a sudden become too rich to be incorporated. In the hands of Delta, the goal of keeping it in the best interest of the public has more assurance of remaining at the forefront of whatever is considered for the property. After the Leader broke the story online last week that Kwantlen's land was up for sale, the social media lines were buzzing with ideas ranging from bringing back horse racing to dedicating a portion of the site to create a heritage park similar to the one in Burnaby. Those are the type of inspired discussions Deltans need to have and then tell their elected representatives. But whatever happens there, it will require a financial commitment—one that may be tough to come up with in tough economic times. An asking price is yet to be placed on Kwantlen's share of the land. But whatever it is—and hopefully it's reasonable—Delta has to be in there with a winning bid. The alternative of allowing it to slip through our fingers would be a very costly tragedy.

CURBING CRIME Education, community policing and changing age profile all contributing to safer streets in Delta REPORTER


anada's national crime rate has been falling steadily for the past 20 years and the municipality of Delta is no exception to this long-term, downward trend. According to a crime trends report released late last year by the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General, Delta's crime rate was 59.5 in 2010, down from 65.8 in 2009 and 73.8 back in 2001. The number is a measure of criminal code offenses—excluding drugs and traffic—reported for every 1,000 people. Delta's rate falls below the 2010 B.C. average (84), and is lower than neighbouring municipalities Surrey (92.2) and Richmond (62.2). In Delta, nearly all types of criminal offenses have dropped over the last decade, including violent crime, assaults, robbery, property offenses, theft, break and enters, and motor vehicle thefts. Among the few offenses that have increased since 2001 are drug offenses and disturbing the peace. Nationally, the declining crime rate has been attributed to legislation changes, shifts in police enforcement, changes in the willingness of victims to report crime, and an aging population. So, what's the story in Delta? Changing demographics One reason for Delta's drop in crime is related to the municipality's aging population, said Delta Police spokesperson Const. Ciaran Feenan.

"Age-related theories say that the crime rate should decline as a crime-prone age group of young people mature," he said. Because of this, he expects crime rates will continue their downward trend. Increased crime awareness at the elementary and high school level, as well as residents

"We rely on the community to inform us when crime is occurring and where it's occurring," Feenan said. Feenan could not compare the crime rates in North and South Delta, but said that because North Delta borders Surrey along 120th Street and is connected to Richmond and New Westminster via the Alex Fraser Bridge, it has the potential to pull in crime from other areas. It takes a community Mayor Lois Jackson, who chairs the Delta Police Board, said it's easy to get distracted when drug and gang-related crime stories are publicized by the media, so it's important to look at the overall picture—which is that crime

attaining higher levels of post-secondary education are also contributing factors. "The education we're doing in our schools with young people to make them aware of their choices, we think, is certainly something that is helping drop the rates," Feenan said. Delta Police have instituted a communitybased policing model based on the theory of Sir Robert Peel who famously stated: "The police are the public and the public are the police."

is dropping in Delta. Jackson said the community has worked hard on crime prevention, creating school programs that encourage kids to adopt good values and stay on "the straight and narrow." "We divert, we prevent. Those take a lot of time, trouble, effort and analysis," she said. As a community, Jackson said citizens are taking more responsibility for their streets, reporting incidents that seem suspicious.

"It takes a whole community to want to be safe and not to allow bad things to happen," Jackson said. Jackson also lauded the benefits of having an independent municipal police department. "The training that's provided for our municipal forces comes through the Justice Institute (of British Columbia), and it is second to none," she said. "We try to grow our own police force from Delta because people that live in the community know the community best," she added. There are well-known geographic "pockets" that police keep a close eye on. Commercial strips, for example, are more prone to crime, Jackson said. "They are easier targets because there's not a lot of eyes on the commercial areas, particularly at night. Also, industrial areas over on River Road." With a grain of salt It's important to use caution when reading crime statistics, said Delta-Richmond East MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay, who noted that statistics are compiled from reported incidents. "You often have crime, particularly property crime, that simply isn't reported," Findlay said. "Sometimes crime isn't reported because a victim or a witness is afraid. They're afraid that they will be called to testify, or maybe they even know the perpetrator." Findlay and the federal Conservatives are promoting their omnibus crime bill which, among other things, would increase mandatory minimum sentencing for crimes involving cases related to drugs, sex and violence. "The overall crime rate has continued to show a modest decline, which is good news. However, I would say that crime is still a serious concern for Canadians," Findlay said. Findlay said Delta does not have the same pressures of the big city, but crime still exists. "I would say we are relatively safe, but that doesn't mean we're immune."

When Time Counts & Quality Matters!

Tried and tested Ladner Auto Body opts for Toyota reliability for customer replacement cars When it comes to automobiles there's plenty of options and opinions out there. They range from focusing on value and reliability, to comfort and luxury. So, the Leader is asking a number of local professionals in the auto industry what they like to see in a vehicle. Here, in the first in a series is Ladner Auto Body's Rick Richardson and his take on the tried and tested Toyota Corolla—the choice for his fleet of customer replacement cars. When it came to deciding on what type and brand of car would fit the requirements of Ladner Auto Body's customer use vehicles best, Richardson didn't hesitate. It was Toyota's workhouse sub compact sedan, the Corolla. Richardson, who has been in the auto body repair business since 1977 said he's had Corollas in his eight-car fleet for the past nine years and they have proven to be reliable, and cost effective. "Other than the regular maintenance—oil changes, brakes and belts—they don't cost me a lot to run," he says. "And when it comes time to selling them, I've literally got a lineup out the door of people wanting them." Despite the rising number of new, highly fuel efficient vehicles using hybrid engines, Richardson said he was more comfortable going with tried and true, fossil fuel-burning technology for his customers. The potentially expensive repair and servicing costs of hybrid technology kept the Corolla firmly in the lead, so much so that when it comes time to retire the current fleet, new Corollas are going to be the likely choice, Richardson said. The Corolla was introduced in 1966 and became the top-selling car in the industry in 1997. As of 2007, 40 million had been sold, a figure that eclipses the venerable Volkswagen Beetle.

dle hurt and I felt terrified with the numerous jabs. Finally, another nurse was recruited to attempt my IV incision. By this time, I was ready to call my recruits (perhaps Superman was home!). I was crying but my nurse calmed me down. He explained to me how I needed help to get me through. He told me he had dealt with a lot of cases like this and was really good at finding veins. It took a lot of will power for me because I was so scared; I was trying to convince myself I could survive without an IV. As my nurse found the vein and I was slowly infused with helpful medicines, I began to feel better. I will not forget how my nurse stood at the edge of my bed, telling me I was going to be all right; that I was going to get over this unfortunate medical experience of mine. Most of all, I remember one word in par-

ticular. “Courage bud, you’ll get over this it just takes courage.” I smiled at him and promised him I’d try and do my best. From that moment on I trusted every doctor and nurse trying to help me, poking me with needles and sticking highly adhesive wiring to my chest. I will never forget that day: all the people involved, and how kind the hospital staff was to me. Words can’t describe how appreciative I am for the one nurse in particular though who took time out of his day to reassure and encourage me. He made me feel safe and strong. To this day he still gives me hope that every human has the potential to overcome anything they believe with a word I will never forget In fact, I had it printed in a tattoo last week as a reminder.

As an adolescent I’ve had a few encounters with the Delta Hospital. I’ve been caught with a few injuries over the past 18 years. However, never have I ever been as frightened as I was this past September when I was sent to the hospital with a low heart rate. Being cold, and feeling quite fatigued I began to worry in my hospital bed. I wasn’t quite sure what was going to happen because I’ve never been in a situation like this: all of my previous visits to the local hospital had involved external injuries like getting run over by horses or sports battle wounds. This was different because it was my heart: an internal organ that I can’t live without. I remember the doctor telling me I may need a pace maker which gave me the reason to get into my imaginary Batmobile and drive away as fast as possible (Luckily Batman needed it that day!). First I had to be hooked up to an IV which my nurse had a great struggle with; my veins were very small and hard to find. Every nee-

TERESA COOPER: DELTA HOSPITAL FOUNDATION EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Ask anyone that is associated with Delta Hospital about why this hospital is so special and they will say "community." It’s the wonderful community that supports and stands by its hospital but it’s also the sense of community within its walls. Take Donna and Heather for instance—both women have been working at the hospital for over 25 years, live in Delta and are passionate about patient care. Then there’s Marjorie and Georgina—two of our amazing auxiliary volunteers that played a key role in bringing a hospital to Delta and still give their time so generously to make Delta Hospital the best that it can be. And the doctor—from our hospitalists to the surgeons to the ER physicians who are committed to outstanding health care and constantly looking for new ways to enhance their work. Visit the hospital for an endoscopy and you’re likely to bump into Melanie or Cheryl—both of these nurses always have a warm smile and a kind word. Taking care of the 92 residents of Mountain View Manor is a labour of love for the residential care team and no one is better at it or brings a warmer welcome to visitors than Nora. Hospital visits occasionally require a bit of waiting. Roberta and Patricia help pass the time by serving a hot cup of coffee along with a big helping of reassuring kindness. Keeping patients moving efficiently through the ER is vital to patient care. Jane has been with Delta Hospital since it opened and her enthusiasm for the hospital shines through in everything that she does. Not many people can leave Delta Hospital without stopping by the Gift Store. Margot and her team of volunteers provide incredible items with a dedication to cheerful, helpful customer service. Most of these people live right here in Delta, you probably stand beside them in the line-up of the grocery store or on the sidelines of a kids' soccer game. They are your neighbours and your friends and they make Delta Hospital the wonderful community hospital that is the envy of everyone in the Lower Mainland. That is why I Heart Delta Hospital.


The following is a letter from a Delta Hospital patient. Between now and Feb. 29 the Delta Hospital Foundation will collect stories about why people from the community love their hospital. And MK Delta Lands Group will donate $100 for each one received. If you don't have time to write a story, visit Delta Hospital Foundation on Facebook or Twitter and follow them, leave a comment, "like" someone else's, or tweet, and MK Delta Lands Group will donate $5.
