Maternity services at Ridge Meadows
Hospital aren’t going anywhere, says
Fraser Health.
In fact, the regional heath authority is
hoping to encourage more local parents
to give birth close to home.
The future of maternity services at the
hospital in Maple Ridge was cast in doubt
earlier this year after a pair of reports
commissioned by Fraser Health recom-
mended closing the ward as part of a bid
to reconfigure obstetric services across
the region, consolidating existing mater-
nity services at eight hospitals to as few
as five. The report noted the ideal num-
ber of births for a maternity ward for “op-
timum efficiency and safe patient care” is
roughly 1,500 per year.
In 2008/09, Ridge Meadows Hospital per-
formed only 859 births.
The report provided five scenarios to re-
configure obstetric services in the Fraser
Health region, four of which would see
those services moved out of Ridge Mead-
ows Hospital to other facilities such as
Surrey Memorial and Royal Columbian.
However, after studying the different
options, Fraser Health has decided not to
remove those services from Ridge Mead-
ows Hospital, or any other hospital, said
Rowena Rizzotti, Fraser Health’s execu-
tive-director for women’s health.
“Our strategy does not include the re-
duction of any obstetric units.”
Instead, as part of its plan to improve ma-
ternity and obstetric services across the
region over the next three years, Fraser
Health is hoping to encourage expectant
mothers to give birth closer to home.

Dalton
won’t run
for premier
The rookie MLA
for Maple Ridge-
Mission won’t
be in the race to
become the next
Liberal leader and
premier of B.C.
“I’m not go-
ing to go for it,”
Marc Dalton said
Wednesday.
“I just feel, in
the time frame
in the leadership,
I couldn’t mount the campaign that I
would want,” he added. “It’s not been
an easy decision, to be truthful.”
Dalton said last week that he was
considering entering the leadership
contest and was fully aware of his
weaknesses as candidate, one of them
being his short time in office, only
elected in spring 2009.

M
ounties are target-
ing the homes, cars
and businesses of
criminals in Maple Ridge
and Pitt Meadows in an at-
tempt to curb crime and
deter others from trying to
set up shop in the munici-
palities.
This year, two houses in
Maple Ridge that were used
to grow marijuana have
been restrained or frozen
under criminal proceeds
legislation, while three oth-
ers – including a business –
are awaiting decisions from
Crown.
A house that held a mari-
juana grow operation and a
“crack shack” are also be-
ing pursued under the Civil
Forfeiture Act.
Ridge Meadows RCMP
seized a total of 8,650 plants
from the six properties
– a crop that would have
earned between $1,557,000
to $2,595,000 in sales.
The forfeitures are one
way of hitting criminals
where it hurts.
Police have dismantled a
number of grow operations
and forwarded criminal
charges, only to see the sus-
pect back in business a few
months later – in the same
house.
Sgt. Daryl Creighton, who
heads the detachment’s
Street Enforcement Unit,
said police also believe that
the proceeds of marijuana
sales have gone into pur-
chasing local businesses.
“While our efforts are not
solely directed toward curb-
ing organized crime, we cer-
tainly don’t shy away when
the opportunity presents
itself,” he added. “Ultimate-
ly, the profits of drug deal-
ing go into the pockets of
those involved in organized
crime.”
The federal Controlled
Drugs and Substances Act
has provisions in the Crimi-
nal Code for property for-
feiture. But under that act,
a criminal conviction is re-
quired before the forfeiture
can take place.
With civil forfeiture,
courts can go after property
or proceeds of crime, where
no charges are laid or per-
son convicted.
While the process to pur-
sue properties in civil court
is easier, it’s an avenue
Ridge Meadows RCMP won’t
be pursuing aggressively.
“Our primary goal is to
charge those responsible
for their crimes and we
won’t seek civil forfeitures
in lieu of criminal charges
or criminal forfeitures,”
said Creighton.
“Each investigation will be
evaluated individually and a
decision will be made based
on the evidence before us.
The criminal court process
will remain our priority.”
Civil forfeitures
The important difference
between a criminal prose-
cution and a civil lawsuit is
the suit filed by the provin-
cial civil forfeiture office is
against the property, not
the owner.
“We just have to be able
to prove that the property
in question is either pro-
ceeds from unlawful activi-
ty or if it was an instrument
used to commit the offense,
like a house being used to
grow marijuana,” said Rob
Kroeker, executive director
of B.C. Civil Forfeiture Of-
fice.
As of November, there
have been 174 success-
ful civil forfeitures in B.C.
More than 90 per cent of
them were connected to
unlawful activity related
to illegal drugs and money
laundering.
So far, only one forfeiture
involving three properties
in Burnaby has been chal-
lenged in court.
Since the office opened in
2006, cash and assets val-
ued at more than $14 mil-
lion have been forfeited to
the province, including $4.4
million since April.
The seized money helps
fund the operation of the
forfeiture office and is used
to pay victims of crime.
The remainder of the cash
is kept in an account and
directed towards crime pre-
vention programs and com-
munity organizations.
Kroeker believes civil for-
feitures do have an impact
on criminal activity and are
a deterrent for crime.
“It’s $14 million that other-
wise would have gone back
into the criminal economy,”
he said.
Forfeitures hitting criminals where it hurts
Maple Ridge is in the top 10 in the “fis-
cal sustainability gap” list of municipalities,
spending twice as much as it can afford, says
the latest version of B.C. Municipal Spending
Watch.
The district is eighth on the list that says
its operational spending increased 2.38 times
more than its overall population and inflation
growth.
That’s even higher than last year’s figure,
when the district’s operational spending in-
creased 2.15 times more than its population
and inflation growth.
The numbers come from this year’s edi-
tion of Municipal Spending Watch, published
by the Canadian Federation of Independent
Business.
At the top of the list, Prince George’s spend-
ing increase was 3.87 times its inflation and
population growth, while New Westminster
was the thriftiest with a rate of 1.15, which
means its increase in spending almost
matched its growth. Pitt Meadows spending
was 2.80 times its inflation and population
growth.
Maple Ridge financial general manager Paul
Gill said most of the increases in the district’s
financial plan, which calls for a 5.6-per-cent
increase in municipal taxes, are not related to
normal operations.
It was a deliberate decision to increase
spending in order to change the Maple Ridge
Fire Department from an all-volunteer force
to one with a balance between volunteers and
career firefighters, he pointed out.
The tax increase that goes into a special ac-
count for infrastructure, so there will be mon-
ey in the future for road and sewer repairs,
works out to only 0.6 per cent of the increase
in taxes that homeowners will pay next July.
The same goes for water and sewer – 1.5-
and 0.6-per-cent increases, respectively.
“We don’t have to. Let’s let our water system
go,” Gill said.
Council made a decision that those spend-
ing increases are worthwhile for the district’s
future, Gill said. He pointed to California,
with crumbling infrastructure and where tax
increases are subject to referendum, as an
example of what happens if the money isn’t
spent.
Mayor Ernie Daykin pointed out the 2011
financial plan now underway has only one ad-
ditional spending item compared to last year.
And that calls for $125,000 for the second stage
of the Albion flats planning process.
“In some ways, it’s frustrating and I think
there’s the assumption that we’re not doing
the rigourous budget planning that we do.
The easy thing to do politically would be to
cut the one per cent of the tax increase allot-
ted to the infrastructure fund, Daykin said.
But a few years later, somebody would have
to pay for those repairs.
Compared to other monthly costs, taxpay-
ers are still getting a good deal, Gill said.
“Most people pay more in one month for
electricity than water and sewer for a whole
year.
“I would suggest that the CFIB tell me which
piece we should not do,” he said.
The Municipal Spending Watch also lists
what it calls “excess spending” – the money
spent over and above what’s needed to keep
pace with growth and inflation.

A Pitt Meadows man
caught with child por-
nography on his com-
puter will spend a year
in prison.
Giles Julian Ching
was handed the sen-
tence last month fol-
lowing a trial earlier
this year when he was
found guilty of possess-
ing child pornography.
The court heard that
police found 3,855 child
pornography images
on Ching’s computer
in April 2007, while he
was on probation for a
similar offence.
Ching has just moved
to Pitt Meadows from
Coquitlam.
He was sentenced
to an additional three
months for breaching
the probation order.
Once released from
prison, Ching will be
bound by a three-year
probation order and
is prohibited from be-
ing where children are
present for five years.
Pitt Meadows man
had more than
3,000 such images

Maple Ridge’s ex-
cess spending in 2008
rings in at $18.7 million
compared to Prince
George’s $27 million.
Municipal Spending
Watch also figures how
much each household
would save if the excess
spending was elimi-
nated. In Maple Ridge,
that would work out to
$1,011.
According to a re-
lease from CFIB, from
2000 and 2008, munici-
pal operating spending
in B.C. grew by 58 per
cent, while population
and inflation grew by
only 29 per cent, which
means that municipal
spending exceeded pop-
ulation and inflation
growth by 2.01 times, or
201 per cent.
“Many municipal poli-
ticians perpetuate the
myth that they are hard
done by when it comes
to revenues; the real-
ity is that they are ad-
dicted to overspending.
“It’s grossly unfair to
taxpayers, who suffer
tax and fee increases
that outstrip their pay
increases,” said Laura
Jones, CFIB’s vice-
president for Western
Canada.
The report includes
recommendations such
as creating a municipal
auditor general.
“This is a disgraceful
state of affairs. With
municipal elections
coming up next year, it’s
time voters put this is-
sue on the radar screen
or we’ll get more of the
same,” Jones said.

As the owner of an auto repair shop I deal
with vehicle owners from all walks of life and
professional pursuits. Not a day goes by that
I don’t learn something new about people.
The common denominator that brings these
customers to our shop is that they are looking
for quality, not quantity.
Quite a few well-meaning souls shop around
for auto repairs just like they would for a new
dishwasher or TV: looking for the best price
first and then considering the type of shop
second. My question to those of you that fall
into this trap is a simple one. Do you buy four
or more dishwashers per year? Probably not,
because a dishwasher is a consumer product;
whereas auto repair is an ongoing consumer
service, one that most people cannot go
without.
The effort a smart consumer puts forth to
find the best buy on a consumer product,
based on price, warranty and availability
cannot be carried over and applied to finding
a good service provider. You must compare
apples to apples, not apples to oranges;
buying a product and buying a service are two
different beasts of burden. Would you go to
four different dentists in the same year?
When choosing an auto repair service facility
the first thing that you need to check are its
trade qualifications and affiliations. If the
shop personnel are not government trained
and certified in your desired field of repair,
then you are responsible for the repairs that
you payed them to perform, not them. You
have little to no recourse against a non-
certified auto repair facility if they make a
mistake, as they do not have to meet industry
standards, so you are left holding the bag,
so to speak. By all means make sure you are
dealing with a qualified repair facility, do not
hesitate to ask the guy at the counter.
The next item on your list of criteria for
an automotive repair facility should be your
ability to communicate with them. This
requires a great deal of effort by both parties
but more so for you the consumer. It is your
money paying for the necessary repairs, you
need to pay attention to every detail and do
not hesitate to ask questions. Ensure that the
repair shop will not spend your money until
they talk to you first. Nobody likes surprises.
In finding any good service provider you need
to prioritize: qualifications, communication,
satisfaction and then price; just the opposite
of purchasing a commodity. If you are happy
with your auto repair shop, stick with them
and tell all your friends, pass the word. If you
are still looking for a good shop you can trust
with your vehicle, your money, and your piece
of mind, give us a call.
If your only criteria is price, then be prepared
to bounce around from shop to shop because
if all you are looking for is cheap, then you
are on a never-ending treadmill. Good luck
with that.

“I clearly … under-
stood it was going to be
a long shot.”
But just by entering
the contest, he hoped
to influence debate and
possibly the selection
of the winner. So far,
George Abbott, Kevin
Falcon, Moira Stillwell
and Mike de Jong have
announced they want to
be leader.
The contest is being
held by preferential
ballot, so if he had been
able to raise some sup-
port, that could have
been directed to his
choice during the later
rounds of voting.
He also wanted to be
a voice at the table to
influence the debate
and said he considered
entering out of a sense
of duty to bring forward
different issues.
The fact that he’s
sixth on the Fight HST’s
list of MLAs for recall
because of the Liberals’
passage of the HST also
played a roll.
If the campaign next
spring is successful,
Dalton said he may
have only another six
months in office – so he
wanted to raise issues
while he could.
For him, one of those
is the violence and dan-
ger posed by organized
crime’s marijuana grow
operations. He pointed
out that he brought in
the director of civil for-
feiture to Maple Ridge
last summer so police
were aware of the pow-
ers under the act.
Since then, there have
been two local success-
ful forfeitures of prop-
erty related to the pro-
ceeds of crime.
People are scared
about the drug trade
and having to live next
to growops, he added.
“I am very concerned
about the level of gang
violence and its impact
on public safety.
“One of my platforms,
if I ran, was to make
every effort to cut the
number of growops in
three years.”
Just as auto theft has
been cut by targeted
efforts, so too can grow
operations.
“I believe we can do
this with growops and
we can make our prov-
ince a safer place.”
The civil approach
to dealing with crime
is gaining greater ac-
ceptance, he said. “It’s
happening. It’s starting
to be used and I’d like
to see that … starting to
roll.”
Dalton said the more
people contesting for
the leadership, the more
voices there are in the
campaign and the more
people are involved, all
of which is good for de-
mocracy.
“It really is not about
me,” he said.
“What is the best thing
I can do for my party,
for the province.”
Local MLA Michael
Sather is among a group
of NDP dissidents turn-
ing up the heat to get rid
of their party boss, Car-
ole James.
It’s a question of look-
ing at the obvious – that
many people aren’t hap-
py with her as leader,
Sather said Wednesday.
“And, of course, on the
street and at the door
step, I hear that lot.
“As leader … the re-
sponsibility rests on
your shoulders to be
able to connect with the
public in a way that they
want to follow you.”
His comments came
hours after Vancouver
MLA Jenny Kwan issued
a blistering news release
calling for James to step
aside.
“There has been a
steady erosion of our
democratic principles.
Debate has been stifled,
decision-making cen-
tralized, and MLAs mar-
ginalized,” Kwan said.
“Many are shocked at
how some critical deci-
sions are made or how
caucus decisions have
been later altered.”
The leader also has to
react quickly to unfold-
ing events, said Sather,
citing the NDP’s delayed
response to the introduc-
tion of the Harmonized
Sales Tax introduction
last spring.
“There is a timeliness
that is required in poli-
tics. You’ve got to some-
times act more quickly.”
Kwan and Sather were
part of a group of 13
MLAs who didn’t sup-
port her at a recent par-
ty meeting.
He said previously
that his position against
James has nothing to do
with him getting kicked
out of the party tempo-
rarily in 2007 because
of his opposition to the
withdrawal of land from
the Agricultural Land
Reserve as part of the
Tsawwassen First Na-
tions treaty. His party
supported that treaty,
but after Sather spoke
against it in the legisla-
ture, he was booted from
NDP caucus for a few
months.
“That isn’t a big deal
with me.”
In her release, Kwan
calls for an immediate
leadership convention
based on a full one-
member, one-
vote system,
instead of the
leadership re-
view that takes
place next No-
vember under
a delegate pro-
cess.
“It is unten-
able that 40 per
cent of caucus
members can-
not publicly say
they support the leader.
Carole James is dividing
the party by staying on
as leader,” Kwan said.
Sather said it’s possible
the Liberals could call an
election next year.
The public’s opinion
about James “tends to
revolve around them
not feeling enthralled or
happy with what they’re
hearing. It comes down
to that all the time,”
Sather said.
In her release, Kwan
also blames James for
“lack of genuine consul-
tation within our cau-
cus” and said there’s “a
clear lack of direction
under the leadership of
Carole James. Whenev-
er a challenging policy
decision arises, often
the default position is to
avoid taking a stand.”
For Sather, if a party’s
in Opposition, “there’s
often a tenden-
cy to lie low,
especially if a
government is
not doing very
well and take
advantage of
that.
But, “If you
don’t put out
enough of your
position on
things, then
people start to
wonder … then what is
the NDP offering?
“Sometimes the cau-

Kwan said there’s now
a political vacuum in
B.C. with New Demo-
crats getting fewer votes
in 2009 than in the 2005
election.
Kwan also took issue
with the decision to have
unions pay Moe Sihota a
salary as president of
the party, without MLAs
knowing.
“Back room deals
should have no place in
today’s politics. Yet Car-

ment until recently.”

Request for Qualifications
Project: RFQ-EN10-191 - 232 Street Bridge over
North Alouette River Design and Engineering Services
The District of Maple is soliciting qualifications from interested engineering
firms to provide functional and detailed design services for replacement of the
232 Street Bridge, just north of the roundabout at 132 Avenue. The District
has prepared a conceptual design showing the new bridge with clear span of
36 m and a cross section width adequate for a total of 2 travel lanes, 1 bike
lane, and 2 sidewalks. The existing aerial watermain crossing will also be
replaced with a new watermain secured to the new bridge. There will be some
roadworks required since the approaches to the new bridge may be at a higher
elevation than the existing road.
The purpose of this Request for Qualification (RFQ) is to solicit responses
from qualified consultants so that the District is able to develop a short-list
of engineering firms. The short-listed respondents will be invited to submit
proposals in response to a Request for Proposal (RFP) to be issued by the
District for this project.
Firms interested in this opportunity are invited to obtain a pre-qualification
information package containing the pre-qualification requirements and
complete instructions for submission of a response. Information packages
may be obtained from the District website: www.mapleridge.ca.

The District of Maple Ridge Operations Department will be
commencing the annual flushing/cleaning program starting at the
west boundary working east to 216th Street between Wharf Street
and 132nd Avenue, for approximately twenty (20) weeks beginning
October 1, 2010.
This maintenance work will improve the water quality; however,
during this cleaning process some residents could experience water
pressure drops and milky or dirty water.
You may take the following steps to correct the problem:
1. MILKY WATER: Open tap slightly to bleed air from the
water lines.
2. DIRTY WATER: Turn an outside tap on until the water
becomes clear.
This temporary interruption in service will be as brief as possible.
Your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.

THE NEWS/opinion
M
aple Ridge,
like its cousins
in British Co-
lumbia, operates under
the Local Government
Act. The last update to
the act was November
3, 2010.
The purpose of the
act is clearly stated:
(a) to provide a legal
framework and founda-
tion for the establish-
ment and continuation
of local governments to
represent the interests
and respond to the needs of their communi-
ties;
(b) to provide local governments with the
powers, duties and functions necessary for
fulfilling their purposes;
(c) to provide local governments with the
flexibility to respond to the different needs
and changing circumstances of their com-
munities.
It was ‘c’ that caught my eye, though.
We have here at our disposal a legal tool
enabling Maple Ridge to respond to the dif-
ferent needs and changing circumstances
of the community. Really?
Who, I wondered, determines what those
changing needs and circumstances are?
Mayor and council, staff? The community,
per chance? Per chance not.
What if the needs and circumstances
remained unchanged? Could it be that
in the absence of changing needs and
circumstances, the District of Maple Ridge
could somehow absolve itself of the need to
respond?
When our micro family first moved here
in 1994, the population was a miserly 55,000.
It seems closer to 80,000 today. In my opin-
ion, the need for response is now upgraded
to ‘emergency response.’
I’m told the population here grows largely
on the notion that housing here costs less
than in most other towns in the valley. I was
told in 1994 that this was a dormitory com-
munity, where people raised their families,
but most of the population went to work
outside Maple Ridge. As a consequence,
the large bulk of the district’s revenue
came from the homeowners and property
owners.
It seems then that Maple Ridge has taken
advantage of two things: a growing popula-
tion based on an influx of new families,
and the fact that it remains comfortable in
the knowledge that its role as a dormitory
community has remained unchanged for
many years.
We sleep here, we go to school here, and
we enjoy watching our kids at soccer and
ice hockey every weekend. That’s Maple
Ridge. On Mondays, we head off for work in
another municipality. Not a bad life. Really?
I am not convinced.
Surely there is more to Maple Ridge than
what we see today.
Ask any member of staff at any level of
the district who they think controls the
affairs of this municipality and the answer
will be ‘ the mayor and council.’ Really?
True, mayor and council have the power
to give any motion before them a thumbs-
up or thumbs down. They do so having
received staff recommendations, and one
likes to think that the decisions taken are to
some degree influenced by what the com-
munity has to say on any particular subject.
There is hardly a subject that passes
without debate by members of the public
these days.
Ask any mayor or council member who
they think controls the affairs of this munic-
ipality and your question will be met with a
wry, knowing look. As if to say, ‘it ain’t me
buddy.’ Finally, ask any of the above who
really controls the destiny of Maple Ridge
and the answer is unanimous: the property
owners.
The odd thing about that is that the land-
owners are the ones who bemoan loudest
– with their developers and realtors in the
choir – that the ineptitude of the district is
what is holding us back, and that the mayor
and council are no more than a sideshow.
Just last week its was pointed out to me
by a councillor that we should not be criti-
cal of staff as it does not have the means to
respond. I don’t see that anywhere in the
Local Government Act.
For their part, the mayor and council
respond daily. It is hard to tell whether
council and staff work with one another
or against one another. I imagine it’s a
little of both. I also imagine that council
can be quite disruptive in the hall, adding
little personal tasks to a work force that is
clearly under severe strain when it comes
to grinding through the civic agenda.
The bureaucrats and the politicians enjoy
promoting the notion that the community
somehow holds the destiny of Maple Ridge
in its grasp. Really? Explain that to me
again.
Cooperation between all is what is need-
ed. That would be a nice Christmas present.

And B.C.’s next premier will be ... not up to you.
Average registered voters will have no say in se-
lecting Premier Gordon Campbell’s successor un-
less, of course, they are card-carrying members of
the BC Liberal party in time for its upcoming con-
vention in February.
Thanks to our version of democracy, this prov-
ince’s most powerful political position will be won
by a candidate who convinces the largest number
of BC Liberal party members, based on a weighted
system mandated by party insiders.
Thanks to our brand of democracy, the general
populace will have no vote in who will lead us – or
how we are led – leading up to the next general elec-
tion, to be held May 14, 2013.
Will we get an autocrat or pushover, a hard-liner
or reformist, a big ‘C’ Conservative or a little ‘c’ con-
servative?
Conceding that the BC Liberals won the major-
ity share in the last provincial election, it could be
argued that the average non-partisan voter should
be willing to accept a replacement not too unlike
Campbell. But this would neglect to note that over
the year and a half since Campbell was elected to
his third consecutive term, his popularity has plum-
meted, thanks in no small share to the botched im-
plementation of the HST.
Even such a strong former Campbell supporter
as Kevin Falcon, erstwhile health minister and now
frontrunner in the leadership stakes, is careful to
distance himself from the most unpopular percep-
tions of the premier. While Falcon looks to the fu-
ture – calling for, and touting himself as, “a new
generation of leadership” at his campaign launch
Tuesday – it’s the past he points to, including his
own record and decisions in the health and trans-
portation portfolios and hewing to the Liberals’ cost
and deficit-cutting, as the best evidence he deserves
the job.
It appears the criteria for leadership of the party
– and the premiership – is to effect a balancing act,
convincing enough people that you are ‘old’ and
‘new,’ at the same time, or perhaps ‘the same, only
different.’
Not, mind you, that we – the electorate – are the
ones who should be convinced.
Instead, it’s party members who have to be sold on
the candidate they think is the most acceptable – or
least unacceptable – to the voters come 2013.
They – and we, it seems – have been wrong be-
fore.

The following is a story by
Mary Lee Toews, a resident
of Baillie House at Ridge
Meadows Hospital.

I
had been begging my
mother to let me get the
tree this year.
It was not very cold out,
but out about there was
about four feet of snow.
I received the standard
answer from her: “Your
have to ask your daddy.”
My father was a gruff soul
and I didn’t want to ask
him, but I really wanted to
get the tree, so I did.
Wonder of wonders, he
said: “yes, as long as you
don’t go too far and get
your-self lost.”
He even said I could take
my girlfriend along, and
said which tools we could
take.
Arrow Park is a beautiful
valley in the west Koote-
nays with majestic saddle
mountains to the north,
Mount Scalping Knife to
the east, Mount Ingersal to
west and the Valhallas to
the south.
Pines, spruces, cedars
and firs were the trees I
loved.
This was my home town.
It was small, maybe 200
people. They were friend-
ly souls for the most part,
and every one of us knew
entirely too much about ev-
eryone else.
But that’s how small
towns are.
I also know that if we got
stranded and had to leave
the tree and tools. They
would still be there when
we got back.
But no need for adults.
My friend and I (10 years
old at the time) waded hip-
deep, straight to the perfect
tree. Very easy; I’d had it
picked out since July.
Then began the hard
part.
“You hold the branches
aside and Ill chop,” said my
friend.
That lasted about three
minutes, where upon we
traded places. Then she,
then me. Finally, I decided
the saw might work better.
It did.
A beautiful forest green,
six-foot spruce, with per-
fect, evenly spaced branch-
es.
I still think of it an its
heavenly aroma, as Christ-
mas rolls round once more.
But this year?
I’m so thankful to head
for the closet and get my
artificial fir, and stay our of
four-foot snow banks.
Merry Christmas, every-
one with many fond memo-
ries.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Shedding clothes for a
cause (The News, Dec. 1).
Shame on you for putting
a half-page, free advertise-
ment for a strip joint on the
front page of your newspa-
per and calling it a news
article.
When was the last time
you put half-front page
advertisement about the
work of the volunteers
at the Caring Place, who
put on Sunday dinners ev-
ery week for the poor and
homeless?
When did you put on a
half-page for fund-raisers
for the Lions or Rotary
clubs or any of the church-
es in our communities?
I am also deeply offend-
ed by the title, “Shedding
clothes for a cause.”
As a youth and childcare
worker, I have met too
many throw-away children,
too many hurting teens
and too many abused wom-
en who look to escape their
situations often by enter-
ing into sexual exploitative
trades – and stripping is
one of those.
Too now give stripping a
warm fuzzy headline and
making the article sound
like a fun-family affair
for a Sunday afternoon,
speaks of depravity of the
worst kind – depravity that
doesn’t even recognize it-
self.
Too many adults have al-
ready bought into the myth
that taking off your clothes
is the best way to raise
money.
Please don’t continue to
teach that myth to our chil-
dren by putting it on the
front page of the newspa-
per.
Don’t get me wrong, I be-
lieve the food bank should
be supported.
I also thank everyone
who, in whatever way, sup-
ports the many causes that
bring joy to the homeless
and the poor at Christmas.
But don’t raise strip acts
to one of heroism.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Marc who? (News
Views, Nov. 26).
I found the editorial about
MLA Marc Dalton an ap-
palling display of editorial-
journalism.
What happen to being un-
biased, fair and impartial?
Is your newspaper serving
the entire Maple Ridge com-
munity or are you becom-
ing more like the American
news media, which chooses
a political party, then be-
comes a one-sided mouth-
piece for that political par-
ty?
What differentiates us
from most communities in
the world is our respect and
our genuine civility towards
each other without regards
to political affiliation.
As a Canadian, I found the
disrespectful sarcastic edi-
torial about Mr. Dalton dis-
turbing. Not only is the edi-
torial insulting to him, but
it insults every voter who
voted for him, in addition to
every teacher in our com-
munity by insinuating that
someone who is a teacher
could not possibly have the
ability to be a leader of our
province.
I believe that the newspa-
per and the editor owe Mr.
Dalton an apology. Mocking
someone because he was a
teacher is not the Canadian
way.
Whether you voted for Mr.
Dalton or not, he deserves
our respect and at least a
semblance of civility.
I hope that your next is-
sue will have an apology to
Mr. Dalton, the residents of
Maple Ridge who voted for
him and all teachers.
Insulting, mocking, and
editorially demagoguing
members of our community
has no place in our political
discourse.

More shopping, employment
From: Mica2, posted on www.mapleridgenews.com.
Re: District taxes up five more per cent (The News, Dec. 1).
Another year of tax increases. And here we have district staff and their
consultant for the Albion flats concept plan recommending that the lands
be set aside for more recreational space. How does district staff and their
consultant suggest the community pay for more recreation space and parks
in Albion? That’s right, even higher taxes. How realistic is this plan?
We have an opportunity to lesson the tax burden in this community by
choosing to use the lands in the flats for employment and commercial
uses. Businesses provide significantly more to the tax base to relieve the
burden on residential taxes. Not only that, but perhaps they contribute
more taxes so that eventually we can read that the rates are going down.
Everyone wants more park and recreation space, but how are we going
to pay for it if we do not encourage industrial and commercial develop-
ment? We need to come up with a plan that utilizes all of the land in
Albion, one that includes more shopping and employment.
More than revenue
From: cb, posted on www.mapleridgenews.com.
Re: District taxes up five more per cent (The News, Dec. 1).
Right on, Mica2. When will council see some light. At the current rate,
Maple Ridge will have the highest taxes in Canada, never mind B.C. We
have to have a balance. People want all the services, but an increasing
population needs more revenue and not just property taxes.
EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: District taxes up five more per cent (The News, Dec. 1).
I read with dismay about yet another increase in our
taxes, that has come in at almost three times the rate of
inflation.
My taxes have already increased more than 16 per cent
in the past two years. How much more this year?
The fact that council has approved a base rate increase
of at least four per cent in the five-year financial plan be-
fore inflation, unexpected cost increases from Metro Van-
couver and TransLink are factored in, makes it clear that
this council is totally out of touch with the electorate.
Council can sit back and boast about statistics that sug-
gest Maple Ridge has one of the “lowest tax bills,” but that
statement hides the fact that we have one of the highest
mill rates of any municipality in the Lower Mainland.
The statement they so proudly exclaim has nothing to
do with its abilities in managing the finances of Maple
Ridge and everything to do with our lower average real
estate values.
How does council expect to attract commercial invest-
ment when we charge one of the highest mill rates? The
thinking is faulty.
The reason many people come here to live is because
they can afford the cost of housing. But council’s out-of-
control spending practices are making Maple Ridge un-
livable.
People are hurting – unemployment, underemploy-
ment, transportation costs, higher costs for everything.
Yet council sees it appropriate to gouge us even more.
Council has obviously ignored the report that came out
last year from the Canadian Federation of Independent
Business that showed Maple Ridge as the 11th worse
spenders of B.C.’s largest municipalities.
There seems to be a serious disregard for the inability
of taxpayers to continually pay more for the little that we
get. I only hope people remember next November. We
need councilors who are willing to tackle the out-of-con-
trol spending at municipal hall.

District spending
is out of control

Pitt Meadows council
isn’t ready to give up on
the Harris Road Park
outdoor pool.
Although the aging
swimming pool leaks
more than 25,000 litres
a day, when full, council
decided at a committee
meeting last week to
try and keep the pool
open, directing staff to
find out exactly what’s
wrong with the 65-year-
old structure.
Cost to repair the pool
in its current condition
could range anywhere
from $79,000 to $300,000,
depending on unfore-
seen problems.
“We are trying very
hard not to [close the
pool],” said Mayor Don
MacLean. “There are a
lot of sentimental rea-
sons to keep it open.”
Council is not direct-
ing the parks commis-
sion to spend $300,000
on repairs, but wants to
determine whether it’s
leaky pipes or the pool
tank itself that’s caus-
ing the problems.
“Surely we can find
out what shape the
pipes are in before
spending $79,000,” Ma-
cLean added.
The pool has been
leaking heated chlori-
nated water into the
ground for years, but
the leak has grown
from 8,300 litres per in
2008 to more than 25,000
litres now – and amount
roughly equal to 1.5
million litres over the
course of the outdoor
pool’s two-month sea-
son.
The pool normally
costs $22,000 to oper-
ate for its two-month
season, independent of
labour costs. But those
costs will continue to
creep higher because
of the leak. Operating
costs last year were
around $35,000.
The parks and leisure
services department
proposed an indoor
aquatic centre replace
the aging outdoor pool
in its draft master plan,
which was presented to
both municipalities ear-
lier in summer.
The preferred option
would include a shal-
low leisure pool with an
eight- to 10-lane, 25-me-
tre competition pool.
The plan suggests split-
ting the municipal por-
tion of the cost for the
$15-18 million project
between the City of Pitt
Meadows and the Dis-
trict of Maple Ridge.
Council will vote on
committee’s recommen-
dation at a meeting on
Tuesday.

The idea is to get small-
er facilities like Ridge
Meadows Hospital closer
to 1,500 births.
Many local parents are
opting to have their chil-
dren at Royal Colombian
Hospital in New West-
minster, 30 km away.
Rizzotti said there is no
need to travel so far to
give birth, unless there
are serious complica-
tions.
In order to encourage
moms to give birth local-
ly, Fraser Health is im-
plementing a program at
Ridge Meadows Hospital
aimed at improving ser-
vices by better manage-
ment of obstetric emer-
gencies.
“We want local ex-
pectant moms to deliver
close to home,” said Riz-
zotti. “That’s why we are
building high quality
standards of care ... so
they can feel safe giving
birth.”
Called MoreOB, the
program will provide
comprehensive training
for all obstetric care pro-
viders.
The program has al-
ready been implemented
at Surrey Memorial and
Abbotsford Regional
hospitals with positive
results, says Rizzotti.
“The feedback has
been very positive,” she
said.
Fraser Health is also
considering building a
pediatric observation
room at Ridge Meadows
Hospital for short-stays
of 24-hours or less.
However, Rizzotti not-
ed it is still in the concep-
tual phase.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle…REJOICE!
The holiday season is upon us and brings with it a significant
environmental impact. Metro Vancouver communities typically
experience a surge of garbage in January, attributed to holiday
decorating, meals and gifting. This year try to create memories, not
garbage. Give gifts that last or share an experience.
The Ridge Meadows Recycling Society has a number of suggestions
for everything from earth friendly gift ideas to how to recycle
toy packaging and old electronics. Visit
www.mapleridge.ca under Sustainability –
Nurture, for a comprehensive list of ways to
reduce holiday garbage heading to the landfill.

and getting around in the
snow can be quite difficult for
the elderly or those who have
mobility and other health
issues. This winter season,
become a Snow Angel and

Project Highlight - Maple Ridge Animal Shelter
Watch for the opening of the new Maple Ridge Animal Shelter this
December with an official community opening celebration to be held
in the new-year when the old facility is removed. The new Animal
Shelter, a joint project between the BC SPCA and the District of Maple
Ridge, is more than double the size of the current animal shelter
and will be BC’s first LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design) accredited animal shelter.
The state-of-the-art building embraces green design features including
high performance glazing, extensive use of windows to increase
natural lighting, and water use reduction techniques. Over 75% of
the construction waste was diverted from the landfill, more than 22%
of construction materials came from recycled materials, and 20% of
total materials were sourced regionally.

Wanted: Nine people
to sit on the agricultural
advisory committee; ex-
perience in farming pre-
ferred for five of those
spots, but not manda-
tory for four of them.
That’s what Maple
Ridge’s agricultural
advisory committee
needs as it heads into
its fourth year of exis-
tence.
Outgoing commit-
tee member Christian
Cowley said with the
committee now estab-
lished and the agricul-
tural plan approved, the
group’s next task will
be to implement the ag-
ricultural plan.
A total of 11 commit-
tee members have vot-
ing privileges. Those
include two farmers
in the food sector, two
from the non-food sec-
tor, one each from
Haney Farmer’s Market
and the Maple Ridge-
Pitt Meadows Agri-
cultural Association,
three members at-large
and someone from the
equestrian community,
although the latter spot
is now vacant.
A member of Maple
Ridge’s economic advi-
sory commission is also
a voting member.
The group has a wide
range of interests and
interesting discussion,
said Matthew Laity,
who’s back for a second
term.
Cowley pointed out
there are only a hand-
ful of major producers
in Maple Ridge and said
the future of farming is
in small-lot operations
which proliferate in the
district.
“We have to make
those viable because
they will be increasing-
ly important for us.”
Any change of sta-
tus in farmland should
come to the agricultural
committee for review,
Cowley said.
However, Maple Ridge
council didn’t consult
the agricultural com-
mittee on this year’s ap-
plication by the Pelton
family to remove 153
acres at Golden Ears
Way and 203rd Street
from Agricultural Land
Reserve.
Instead, council sent
the application directly
to the Agricultural Land
Commission.
That was disappoint-
ing, said Cowley.
“There people that sat
around there for four
years didn’t sit around
there to spin their
thumbs.”
The ALC, however, re-
jected the application.
Had that property
been allowed to be re-
moved from the farm
reserve and a business
park built, it would
have made the handful
of remaining farms in
the area “non-viable,”
Cowley said.
The committee should
be the first entity where
any major farm issues
should come, he said,
adding there are two
streams of thought on
the committee.
“Some people have a
particular interest and
some people have the
community interest in
mind.”
Non-voting members
include someone from
the Ministry of Agricul-
ture, Food and Fisher-
ies, the Greater Vancou-
ver Regional District ag
advisory committee,
and the Agricultural
Land Commission.

or every item they
strike off their
list, they help a
stranger achieve one
of his or her dreams
and encourage oth-
ers to conquer lists of
their own.
It’s why Norgaard is
aiming high. He wants
to be invited on the
show by Ellen, rather
than buy a ticket, sit
in the audience and
surreptitiously bust a
move when Ellen takes
the stage. He wants to
follow her through the
crowd when she does
a corny jig that opens
each episode.
“I like her because
she’s down to earth,”
says Norgaard, a true
fan who slipped in ref-
erences to Ellen in his
ode only other Ellen en-
thusiasts will clue into.
“She’s got a way of
recognizing everyday
people and that’s what
drew me to her.”
Norgaard, who just
graduated with a de-
gree in criminology
from Simon Fraser Uni-
versity, isn’t a ballet
dancer or a maestro at
the waltz. In fact, learn-
ing to dance is item No.
4 on his list of thing to
do. Getting into a fight
is No. 63.
“I’ve got some pretty
embarrassing dance
moves,” admits Nor-
gaard.
“I’ve got five left
feet.”
So far, the folks in
L.A. have yet to call.

Norgaard says he’ll keep waiting,
while striking off the easier tasks
on his bucket list such as skydiv-
ing, shooting a gun, becoming a
licensed minister (for fun), catch-
ing a fish with his bare hands and
sleeping in a haunted house.
It could be years before the pro-
ducers at The Ellen Show deem
him a worthy guest, decades be-
fore he becomes a YouTube sensa-
tion.

Police are looking for
the owner of a pit bull
who bit a grandmother
in downtown Maple
Ridge on Friday.
Alice Doucette, 71, of
Pitt Meadows was left
bleeding on the sidewalk
after being attacked and
knocked to the ground
by a leashed pit bull out-
side the Haney Bingo
Plex shortly after 6 p.m.
Her son Wayne said
the dog’s owner strug-
gled to bring the ani-
mal under control, then
quickly fled on foot de-
spite attempts by the
gaming facility’s securi-
ty personnel to stop her.
Doucette was treat-
ed for a bite to her
left thigh at Ridge Mead-
ows Hospital and later
released.
She suffered a large
puncture wound that re-
quired four sutures.
“She is afraid of dogs,
but now she is complete-
ly traumatized,” said
her son.
Police have reviewed
security footage from
the Bingoplex and are
currently reviewing
dog license details to
identify a possible own-
er.
The woman walk-
ing the full-size, tan-
coloured pit bull is
described as a white, be-
tween 25 to 30 years old
with shoulder-length
blonde hair.
• Anyone with infor-
mation is asked to con-
tact the Ridge Meadows
RCMP at 604-463-6251.

H
ow often do you see
a technical wonder
created in a garage
in your own backyard?
When you do, you have to
tell the story and share the
excitement with the rest of
the world – as Dreamfilm did
with the eVaro.
The Maple Ridge-born-
and-bred electric car went
on a wild ride this summer
and got to the second-last
round of the worldwide X
Prize competition for the
most fuel-efficient vehicle.
Dreamfilm Productions of
North Vancouver was there
every step of the way.
The documentary film
company accompanied the
eVaro team, most of whom
have their own jobs, for each
of three visits to Michigan
International Speedway,
near Detroit, where compe-
titions determined the most
road-worthy, fuel-efficient
vehicle in three categories.
“We think they made ter-
rific characters for a story,”
Dreamfilm’s Sue Ridout said
last week.
The storyline is perfect for
Discovery Canada, which
will air the two-hour feature
on Jan. 6, once at 5 p.m. then
again at 9 p.m. That channel
loves stories where ordinary
people overcome technical
challenges.
“What makes the story
team so compelling is that
we can all relate,” says di-
rector Kelly McClughan in
release from Dreamfilm.
“How many of us think, ‘I
have a great idea’ or, ‘I know
what would make this even
better.
“George is the guy who
picks up a welding torch
and starts doing it. He’s not
afraid to try because he’s not
afraid to fail.”
Ridout said that was a con-
stant theme with the eVaro,
which unlike many entrants,
created its vehicle from
scratch.
“They all have quite differ-
ent backgrounds.
“I think one thing that’s
so interesting about this
story is that (FVT president)
George Parker sketched this
on a napkin in 1985.”
Despite obstacles and set-
backs, the team kept trying
to solve problems on a shoe-
string budget. From that,
comes technological innova-
tion.
“They just never stop,”
Ridout said.
“FVT made a huge amount
of that car from scratch.”
The first half of the show
takes place mostly in Future
Vehicle Technologies shop in
Maple Ridge Business Park,
with the second half on the
track in Michigan.

tional Speedway for competitions to determine the most fuel-
efficient vehicle.

First contract with U.S. manufacturer
It’s unusual for a documentary to run that
long, Ridout notes.
The fact that the team didn’t make it to
the final round, didn’t detract from the sto-
ry line either because it would have made a
good story no matter how it finished, said
Ridout.
The eVaro was knocked out because its
onboard gasoline-powered generator mal-
functioned, even though the car didn’t even
need the generator for that part of the test.
The winner in the tandem category was
the E-Tracer 7009 from Switzerland which
used a motorcycle design.
Ridout said it was sad that happened but
it doesn’t change the story about the people
and Future Vehicle Technologies.
“It’s really pretty amazing. I think there
were 120 teams registered, going to that
event.”
Those early struggles and countless
hours starting from scratch rather than
modifying existing vehicles, are now pay-
ing off.
With the contest behind them, the FVT
is now starting to market its technology
and has one deal signed and others in the
works.
Its first contract is with a U.S. electric ve-
hicle manufacturer for which FVT will be
making components. The company’s name
is confidential because it, like other compa-
nies, doesn’t want the public to know that it
farms out some of its manufacturing.
“It’s certainly encouraging because we’ve
only been looking for customers for three
months,” said CEO Todd Pratt.
“It was a real good day when the contract
got signed.” He calls his company’s tech-
nology “game changing.”
A few other contracts are also in the
works but nothing’s definite. The plan is to
use the revenue from manufacturing and
design to fund FVT’s development of a real
car. The eVaro is currently in trike mode,
which means cheaper licencing and safety
costs.
FVT also will supply UBC and McGill
University with its batteries and battery-
management systems while in conjunction
with UVic, it’s developed a way of making
its own batteries to augment the power of
the lithium cells that it gets from Korea.
Although the company is now starting to
generating revenue rather than research,
the three full-time staff is enough for their
current workload.
Some of the members of the eVaro team
include: founder George Parker, a mill-
wright; Pratt is a former industrial arts
teacher who owns the Frogstone Grill;
Brad Zimmerman is an automotive techni-
cian; Tom Tourand owns Primetime Digital
computer store; Bart Boelryk used to be an
automotive engineer with Magna Interna-
tional, an auto parts maker and Rockwell
Automation; while Frank Cloutier was for-
mer CEO of Hewlett Packard.
Future Vehicle Technologies will set a
date for a pre-screening party in Vancou-
ver. A time and place has yet to be set.

A Pitt Meadows man
spotted firing a gun
in a park Saturday
faces several weapons
charges.
Darren Drein, 42,
was taken into cus-
tody after witnesses
called police to report
a man firing a gun in
Hoffman Park around
11 p.m.
Police allege Drein
was seen with a gun as
he walked along Ford
Road.
“From my under-
standing, there was no
one in the immediate
area where the shots
were discharged,” said
Insp. Derren Lench.
“However, anytime
someone discharges a
firearm, public safety
is at risk. We’re happy
that we could identify
this person, and ob-
tain enough evidence
to lay charges.”
Following the ar-
rest, police executed
two search warrants
where seven firearms
were seized.
Drein appeared in
Port Coquitlam Provin-
cial Court on Wednes-
day on several charg-
es, including carrying
a concealed weapon,
and dangerous use of
a firearm.
He has been released
on bail.
Armed robbery
Cigarettes, money,
lottery tickets and bus
passes were stolen
Wednesday during an
armed robbery at a
Maple Ridge gas sta-
tion.
The lone suspect en-
tered a Petro Canada
on Dewdney Trunk
Road at 240th Street
just after midnight and
threatened staff with a
hammer.
He was wearing a dis-
guise as well as a puffy
black jacket.
A police dog was un-
able to pick up a track.
ATM stolen
A bank machine was
stolen early Tuesday in
a brazen break-in at a
Maple Ridge mall.
Ridge Meadows RCMP
said thieves broken into
Haney Place Mall be-
tween 4 a.m. and 7 a.m.
by removing a glass en-
trance door on the north
side.
The thieves managed
to remove the machine
before escaping unde-
tected by mall security
or police.
Police suspect a ve-
hicle was involved in the
break-in because of the
ATM’s weight.
Teen injured
A 14-year-old girl from
Pitt Meadows girl was
badly injured Monday
when she was struck by
a car while she was try-
ing to cross a busy road.
The incident happened
just after 9 p.m. in the
20700-block of Dewdney
Trunk Road in Maple
Ridge.
Police said officers
were told that the young
pedestrian ran out in
front of an eastbound
car, which was unable to
stop before hitting her.
The girl was taken to
Royal Columbian Hospi-
tal, where she was stabi-
lized.
Car ditched
Police arrested a man
from Vancouver early
Thursday in connection
with a car theft in Maple
Ridge.
The 25-year-old was
taken into custody
around 3:30 a.m. after a
Mountie on patrol found
a car in a ditch in the
19400-block of Dewdney
Trunk Road.
Evidence at the scene
indicated the car had
not been there long, so
a police dog and handler
from the RCMP Lower
Mainland District were
called in.
The dog sniffed out the
man who was hiding in a
wooded area nearby.
Officers learned that
the 2004 Hyundai Accent
had been stolen some-
time between 5:30 and
7:40 p.m. Wednesday.
The man was set to
appear in Port Coquit-
lam Provincial Court on
Thursday on charges of
possessing stolen prop-
erty.
Pot seized
More than 600 mari-
juana plants were seized
Monday after police
executed a search war-
rant at property in east
Maple Ridge.
Ridge Meadows RC-
MP’s Street Enforce-
ment Unit entered the
house in the 12200-block
of 272 Street around 8
a.m.
The policing unit ob-
tained the warrant on
an allegation that the
occupants of the home
were stealing power.
The home was empty at
the time of the search.

VICTORIA – The first
three B.C. Liberal lead-
ership contenders are
all sticking to their sup-
port of the harmonized
sales tax, but looking
for ways to ease the
public’s anger over it.
Announcing his lead-
ership bid Tuesday,
Surrey-Cloverdale MLA
Kevin Falcon proposed
cutting the HST rate to
11 per cent initially, and
then to 10 per cent as
soon as provincial rev-
enues are sufficient to
do it.
B.C.’s HST contract
with Ottawa requires
the province to keep the
rate at 12 per cent until
July 1, 2012, after which
time the seven per cent
provincial share can be
changed.
Falcon endorsed Shus-
wap MLA George Ab-
bott’s call to move up a
province-wide vote on
repealing the HST to
June rather than wait
until next September.
Vancouver-Langara
MLA Moira Stilwell has
also called for an earlier
vote.
Falcon called on all
leadership contenders
to sign a letter he is
sending to Premier Gor-
don Campbell, asking
the cabinet to request
an earlier vote from
Elections B.C. All of
the first three contend-
ers have resigned their
cabinet seats to run for
the top job.
Falcon said a June 24
vote would still give B.C.
voters time to consider
modifying the tax. Elec-
tions B.C. officials have
indicated it will take
several months to set
up the polling stations,
staff and procedures for
the province’s first-ever
initiative vote.
Speaking in Victoria
Tuesday, Abbott said it’s
too soon to discuss cut-
ting the HST rate, rath-
er than using the money
to reduce the budget
deficit or increasing
program spending.
“It’s premature to
start speculating about
that,” Abbott said.
“Everyone loves the
idea of tax reductions,
but it has to be done in
the context first of the
referendum, and subse-
quently by what we can
afford.”
Falcon suggested a
full public debate about
the options available be-
fore the public votes on
the HST. Those would
include reducing the
HST rate or proceeding
with the 15 per cent in-
come tax proposed by
Campbell before he an-
nounced he is stepping
down.
De Jong joins race
Public Safety Minister
Rich Coleman’s cam-
paign plane was ready
to go, but he’s staying
on the ground.
Heading into a cabi-
net meeting Wednes-
day morning, Coleman
confirmed what he
told his supporters on
Tuesday – after putting
together a team and
raising money, he has
decided to sit out the
B.C. Liberal leadership
contest.
Coleman bowed
out at the same time
as Abbotsford West
MLA Mike de Jong an-
nounced he was resign-
ing as B.C.’s attorney
general to join the lead-
ership contest. De Jong
joins Surrey-Clover-
dale MLA Kevin Falcon,
Shuswap MLA George
Abbott and Vancouver-
Langara MLA Moira
Stilwell in the contest
to replace Premier
Gordon Campbell, with
B.C. Liberal members
choosing their next
leader Feb. 26.
Coleman said he
had plenty of support
among MLAs, enough
money pledged to run
a leadership campaign
and an airplane donat-
ed for his use.
“I just gotta go with
my own heart, and I
just thought it wasn’t
right,” Coleman said,
citing his family.
Coleman said he isn’t
going to indicate sup-
port for any leadership
candidate at this point.
One of his main policy
planks was to look for
ways to give the food
and beverage indus-
try some “flexibility”
under the harmonized
sales tax, he said.

18 – Friday, December 3, 2010 - THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
I
spoke, last week,
about the concept
of teaching young
people to manage
their anger before
they get to a point
where they have
learned a certain
pattern of behaviour
that is unacceptable
and puts them at risk
of endangering their
relationships with all
kinds of people.
In education, I have
certainly experienced
adults who have not
learned to manage
their anger either and
heard enough stories
from colleagues to
know that it’s not just
me who draws fire
from parents.
I often try to explain
to people outside the
world of education,
the difference be-
tween going to work
with people’s kids and
going to work with
their cars or bank
accounts or goods
they wish to purchase.
The level of emotion
that wells up when
children are involved
is extraordinary,
and you never ‘walk
the trail between a
mother bear and her
cub.’ I’ve got a few
scars to prove that.
But I do believe that
authority figures, in
general, and teachers
are no exception, are
being exposed to an
excessive level of dis-
respectful behaviour
from many adults.
While we expect it,
to some extent, from
young people, whose
growth and develop-
ment often entails
pushing the boundar-
ies, we do not expect
it from their parents.
I have been sworn
at, spit at, tackled for
taking the car keys
from a parent who
was too drunk to drive
her kids home safely,
threatened with
lawsuits more times
than I can remember
and even had a father
show me the
gun he car-
ried under
his coat with
some veiled
reference to
“taking care
of business.”
I’ve had
to break up
verbally abu-
sive parent-
teacher
conferences,
get restrain-
ing orders is-
sued to keep
divorcing parents
from conducting their
wars in the hallways
or in my office, and
read over venomous
e-mails sent at two or
three in the morning
because I wouldn’t
answer my home
phone, which I keep
as an unlisted num-
ber but seems to get
found more often than
it should.
I am told every now
and then that a parent
is afraid to complain
about a teacher
because they fear a
backlash for their
child. Although I can’t
deny the sensitivity of
some teachers to criti-
cism, such a backlash
is extremely rare,
except when a child is
consciously lying to
a parent to inflame a
situation.
Teachers deal with
raw emotion regu-
larly and most of us
have learned long ago
not to personalize
comments made by
people under stress or
to hold on to grudges
from the actions of
students or their
parents.
If we did, we’d all
have heart attacks by
the end of 10 years of
teaching.
Still, it is my sense
that many teachers
are feeling attacked in
general.
The lack
of support
they get
from parents
when hold-
ing students
accountable
is often pal-
pable.
I know that
many teach-
ers have
simply pulled
back from
any form of
confrontation
for fear of their own
safety and from ha-
rassment by parents.
That places a great-
er burden on those
who wish to maintain
order and heightens
the stakes when the
teachers are seen as
inconsistent.
‘No one else has a
problem with my kid,’
may be more a func-
tion of many teachers
backing off than of
any personal vendetta
a firm teacher may
have.
I know I sound over
the hill when I say
this, but seriously,
there needs to be a lot
more civility and re-
spect in relationships
between parents and
teachers.
Our goals are all the
same; we’re all trying
to help each child do
the best of which they
are capable and we
are all sharing the
pressure to do that.
Ramping up the
emotions between us
will have little impact
on improving any situ-
ation.

Dissolve is a one-woman play written and performed by Meghan Gardiner. It is a play about drugs (like
Rohypnol and GHB) and rape. It is a story of victimization and about the countless bystanders who do
nothing to stop it. And, in the talkback following the play, we learn that it is the story of Meghan herself.

A
s we ap-
proach
another
Christmas, there
comes blazing
across the centu-
ries and ringing
in the hearts of
Christians a mes-
sage for all the
world to hear.
When Jesus was
born in Bethle-
hem, an angel
with a multitude
of the heavenly
host declared: ‘peace on earth, good
will to men.”
And, yet, the world as such has never
known true peace.
It it even possible?
On Dec. 7, 1941, Capt. Mitsuo
Fuchida, piloting a Mitsubishi Zero led
a squadron of 360 planes to bomb Pearl
Harbour. Fuchida was first over the
target and last to leave after personally
sinking the U.S. battleship Maryland.
A few days later, he stood proudly
before Emperor Hirohito in the Impe-
rial Palace to give a first-hand account.
He hated the enemy and war was the
order of the day to expand the terri-
tory of the Land of the Rising Sun.
On the U.S. mainland, St. Sgt. Jacob
De Shazer was enraged when he heard
the news report of the Japanese attack.
He said: “The Japanese will pay.”
St. Sgt. De Shazer was a bombardier
on one of the 16 planes that flew off the
aircraft carrier under the command of
General James Doolittle and bombed
Japan. Lack of fuel dictated that the
planes head for China rather than
return to the carrier.
Out of fuel, the crew bailed out over
Japanese-occupied China.
St. Sgt. De Shazer landed in a cem-
etery, was injured and captured the
next day.
Imprisoned in both China and Japan
for the rest of the war, he endured
torture and untold harsh treatment.
He confessed his hatred for the Japa-
nese and, to his own peril, defied his
captors.
Near the end of the war, the prison-
ers began to receive Red Cross parcels.
In one of them, St. Sgt. De Shazer re-
ceived a bible, and while reading it he
gave his heart and life to Jesus Christ.
His attitude changed and the hatred
and bitterness were replaced by a deep
compassion.
Following his return to the states, he
graduated from Seattle Pacific College
and went back to Japan to serve as a
Christian missionary for 30 years.
Captain Fuchida narrowly escaped
death a number of times and after the
war returned to his farm, concluding
that his nation should follow after
peace, not war. But how could they
experience peace?
At Tokyo Shibuya station, he
received a tract titled “I was a war
prisoner in Japan,” written by St. Sgt.
De Shazer.
Moved by it, Fuchida bought a bible.
After reading 30 pages, he opened my
heart and received Jesus Christ as his
personal saviour.
He had found the peace that his na-
tion needed.
The two men met and travelled the
world preaching peace by Jesus Christ.

Transportation Min-
ister Shirley Bond has
relented and agreed to
wait a few months to
find new ways to fund
TransLink and ensure
the Evergreen Line
gets built.
The move means
TransLink’s propos-
al to raise property
taxes at least $36 per
average household to
fund the $1.4-billion
SkyTrain Line to Co-
quitlam won’t be put
to a scheduled Dec. 9
vote of Metro Vancou-
ver mayors, who ap-
peared almost certain
to defeat the plan.
Local cities had been
told they had to ap-
prove some method
by the end of this year
to deliver their $400
million share of the
Evergreen Line costs
before the provincial
government puts the
project out to bids.
But Bond – who pre-
viously hinted Vic-
toria would force a
solution if the mayors
voted down the fund-
ing – will now wait
and consider other op-
tions.
“We will work along-
side the mayors’ coun-
cil to try to find a way
to a potential solution
that is not confronta-
tional,” she said.
It gives both sides
more time to consider
everything from road
pricing to a vehicle
levy or other mecha-
nisms not currently
available to TransLink
ahead of a possible
new vote, perhaps in
early spring.
Bond cautioned she’s
not certain sufficient
work can be done by
then on some options,
such as a vehicle levy,
but said she and her
staff will try.
“I’m not sure any-
body understands the
impacts of a vehicle
levy and the costs it
would bring to fami-
lies in Metro Vancou-
ver,” she added.
Nor would she spec-
ulate what new sourc-
es could be before the
mayors next year.
But Bond repeated
assurances the Ever-
green Line will pro-
ceed.
Regional mayors’
council chair and Lan-
gley City Mayor Pe-
ter Fassbender said
Bond’s move averts
an unnecessary show-
down in December
with area mayors.
“This is a major
step on the minister’s
part,” said Fassbend-
er, who requested the
delay. “She has been
very receptive. She
understands the dy-
namics and tensions.”
Fassbender said de-
laying the vote on a
new financial supple-
ment to spring will
allow a more clear-
headed decision with
new information on
possible revenue
streams and more po-
litical stability, after
the swearing in of a
new premier and cabi-
net.
“Now that we don’t
have the pressure of a
year-end deadline for
the Evergreen Line
we can all take a deep
breath,” he said.
A senior staff report
has recommended
mayors reject the tax-
hike plan.
Most mayors have
already staked out a
firm stance against
increasing proper-
ty taxes further for
TransLink expansion,
although Fassbender
and Bond both said
that will still be an op-
tion under consider-
ation in the new year.
Coquitlam Mayor
Richard Stewart
hopes TransLink gets
access to half a dozen
or more new revenue
sources.
His favourite is a
site-specific develop-
ment cost charge that
would put a good por-
tion of the cost of new
rapid transit lines
onto property owners
who stand to profit in
defined benefitting ar-
eas.
TransLink had con-
templated a vehicle
levy instead this fall,
which would have
charged every regis-
tered vehicle $15 to $55
a year, depending on
the carbon footprint,
but concluded there
wasn’t enough time to
property consider and
implement the idea.
Surrey Mayor Di-
anne Watts has said
“fair tolling” – where
bridges are tolled
equally rather than
just in one part of the
region – must also be
on the table.
TransLink had said
it needed to raise
annual revenues by
$39 million a year to
generate a $465-mil-
lion contribution to
the Evergreen Line
and phase one of the
North Fraser Perim-
eter Road.
But the TransLink
board urged mayors
to approve an even
bigger $800-million
package of upgrades
that also included ex-
panded bus service
and SkyTrain station
upgrades, requiring
annual revenues rise
$68 million a year.
That would have
meant committing to
a bigger tax hike of
$61 a year for a typi-
cal home ($8.91 per
$100,000 of assessed
value.)
Mayors had been
told the property tax
hike would act as a
backup and only kick
in if other alternate
sources could be found
next year.
But many mayors
weren’t willing to
trust that the province
would deliver new
sources after they
sign off on a tax hike.
More time to raise TransLink cash
Mayors won’t vote
after all Dec. 9 on
tax hike options

It pays to be a group-
ie.
Tapping into the
power of group buy-
ing has become a pop-
ular online practice,
with local consumers
emerging as the win-
ners with all the mon-
ey they save.
That’s why Black
Press Digital (a divi-
sion of Black Press
Ltd.) launched BC-
DailyDeals.com in
October. The new
website uses the pow-
er of group purchas-
ing, or team buying,
to provide a place for
consumers and their
friends, families and
colleagues to find fan-
tastic deals on local
food, entertainment,
travel, beauty and
more.
By offering Metro
Vancouver advertis-
ers unmatched lo-
cal media exposure,
BCDailyDeals is able
to secure exclusive,
discounted deals for
its customers. The
advertiser is guaran-
teed a certain num-
ber of customers for
their investment, as
consumers only get
the deal if a specified
number of people buy
within the available
time period.
“We are a local busi-
ness helping other
local businesses find
their own voice in
the community,” says
Black Press Digi-
tal president Gary
Green.
“For the consum-
ers, we want them to
enjoy and explore the
communities in which
they live, work and
play.”
B C D a i l y D e a l s .
com will feature one
advertiser for a lim-
ited time period, of-
fering a product or
service that is deeply
discounted by 50-90
per cent.
A minimum number
of people must buy
to activate the offer
for all buyers; thus,
consumers are en-
couraged to share the
excitement with their
friends, family and
social network, via
Twitter, Facebook or
email links.
Consumers can sub-
scribe to email alerts
to be notified about
exclusive discounts
throughout Metro
Vancouver, and even-
tually, BCDailyDeals
plans to expand to
Vancouver Island and
the B.C. Interior.
“We create a win-
win situation that our
advertisers and our
consumers can both
benefit from – they
key to our success,”
Green says.
Black Press New
Media project direc-
tor Jason Naidu notes
BCDailyDeals repre-
sent the colourful and
diverse cultures that
make British Colum-
bia the beautiful prov-
ince it is.
“If you live in Van-
couver and the Lower
Mainland, and would
like to take advantage
of and experience
everything our local
communities have to
offer, BCDailyDeals.
com will alert you to
the best offers at a
price that’s hard to
turn down,” Naidu
says.
With many consum-
ers now aiming to
reduce their carbon
footprint in order to
be more environmen-
tally friendly, shop-
ping locally can only
help their efforts, he
adds.

It’s a whole new kind of mortgage that lets you call the shots. You can put extra money in, take it out anytime and
even skip a payment once a year, no questions asked. You’re also in charge of your rate. Choose between a fixed,
a variable, and our Half & Half

Rate–which gives you the advantages of both. Who’s the boss? You are. With the
You’re the Boss

Mortgage.

a Mobile Mortgage Specialist can come to you. Simply go to our website or give us a call to arrange a visit.
Just don't let it go to your head.
Interest rate and approval based on risk profile. High ratio mortgages, non-residential mortgages and non-owner occupied properties are not eligible. Prepayment,
reborrow and skip a payment rights are each subject to specific limitations, restrictions and conditions including minimum and maximum dollar amounts. The Half

prime rate. Visit your local branch for complete details.

www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS - Friday, December 3, 2010 – 25
F
inding the
perfect
Christmas
gift is a lot like
walking through
a horse pasture
at night, no
matter how
carefully you
tread, sooner or
later you end up stepping in it.
Which makes those countless hours
spent at crowded malls all the more
frustrating, because you realize that the
whole exercise is actually just one big
crap shoot.
And if you think giving the wrong gift
can be a bit awkward, receiving one can
be even worse.
Let me take you back to Christmas Eve
1973, when a younger Mike with a bad
Beatles haircut (the mop-top with bangs)
is hoping beyond hope for a blue Adidas
tracksuit (with three yellow stripes) and
a Deep Purple Machine Head LP.
Things were looking pretty good from
the outside, but I learned the hard way
that you can’t judge a gift by the wrap-
ping.
The grim reality of Christmas morn-
ing was a K-Tel Fantastic album (with
no Deep Purple), a fibre optic lamp and a
fake red Adidas tracksuit with two white
stripes.
Growing up with a Beatles haircut is
bad enough, but when you add a fake
Adidas tracksuit to the mix, junior high
school can get pretty hellish.
At the other end of the spectrum are
those gifts that we give only to satisfy
a personal desire. Mine was a collective
present to my daughters which just hap-
pened to resemble the rocket kit I always
wanted as a kid, the same one my mom
nixed because she thought I’d burn the
house down (she was probably right).
The girls were a little perplexed when
they first opened it, but once I told them
how high it could fly, we were off to the
local park to make history.
It was a picture perfect launch – that
little orange rocket just kept going and
going until it finally disappeared from
sight.
Ten minutes later, I realized that I had
just sent my daughters’ Christmas gift
into the stratosphere and to this day, they
still remind me that I owe them a rocket.
So now that I’ve shown you all the
pitfalls of gift giving, perhaps I can point
you in the right direction, at least as far as
gardening is concerned.
In my estimation, there are only three
types of garden gift recipients: the ‘al-
ready got it all’ crowd; the ‘naturalist’; and
the ‘gimmick addict’ – and I have chosen
one ideal gift for each of these.
• The ‘Already Got It’ gift: Don’t bother
looking for that rare plant for the ‘got it
all’ gardener, because even if you end up
finding it, that only proves that it wasn’t
rare enough to begin with.
I say go with the ephemeral and noth-
ing is more seasonal than the handmade
Christmas wreaths at Timberosa Tree
Farm in Pitt Meadows. These are the ul-
timate in zero-mile decorations – as each
berry, branch and bough comes from Tim
and Cathie’s five acres.
From the black-stemmed pussy wil-
low and winterberry (Ilex verticillata)
wreaths, to their small line of homespun
wool Santa ornaments (brought in from
Mission), every piece is a one of a kind
work of art.
• The ‘Naturalist’ gift: It can be difficult
at the best of times to find a ‘store-bought’
gift for the true naturalist – as they tend
to prefer bird watching or a brisk walk on
the dyke over a box of chocolates.
A Mason bee nest box is a great way to
intrigue naturalists, young or old, while at
the same time providing habitat for native
pollinators.
Mason bees (Osmia lignaria) much
resemble flies, do not sting and are 120
times more efficient than honeybees at
pollinating fruit trees.
The nest shown features eco-friendly,
corn-based (75 per cent) plastic nesting
trays that can be opened for cleaning and
accommodate up to 430 eggs.
Essentially you get a home-based hive
for pollination without the hassles of
honey production or protective gear.
• The ‘Gimmick Addict’ gift:– Cheap
garden gadgets are a dime a dozen, but
well-built ones that actually work are rare
finds.
The place to look for the latter is Lee
Valley Tools, which is where a friend of
mine bought the above grafting tool – you
just cut the end of the scion wood and the
branch you want to graft to, and it creates
a perfect interlocking joint every time.
Unfortunately, I was unable to find this
particular model on its website, but a
quick perusal of the 2010 Christmas cata-
logue did bring the ‘Hori Hori Knife’ (for
dividing perennials), the ‘Hanging Basket
Pulley’ and ‘Badger Balm’ hand cream to
light – all of which fill a practical need for
gardeners.

ABBOTSFORD – The
province is contribut-
ing $1.5 million to help
build a new Canuck
Place Children’s Hos-
pice in Abbotsford.
It will provide com-
passionate palliative
care to children and
their families, closer to
home, announced new
Health Services Minis-
ter Colin Hansen.
“With almost half of
the children living in
the Fraser Health re-
gion, a new stand-alone,
10-bed children’s hos-
pice in Abbotsford will
best support the expan-
sion of Canuck Place
hospice,” said Hansen,
who helped launch the
holiday season at the
Lighting of the Hospice
at Canuck Place.
“The expansion sup-
ports the specialized
care for more than 400
children and teens a
year with life-threaten-
ing illnesses, as well as
their families, through-
out B.C.”
Canuck Place has
been providing high-
quality, specialized pe-
diatric palliative care
to children for 15 years,
and this expansion will
allow it to more than
double its capacity,
while offering the pro-
gram closer to home for
many families.
The support and care
provided at Canuck
Place helps to lessen
the burden on families
during what is a diffi-
cult time.
“Helping build a new
Canuck Place in Ab-
botsford will bring pal-
liative care closer to the
families and children
that need it here in the
Fraser Valley, as well as
for families driving to
the Lower Mainland,”
said Abbotsford South
MLA John van Dongen.
“Partnering with Ca-
nuck Place and private
donors to expand the
renowned services will
ensure quality care
is available for these
families,” said Abbots-
ford West MLA Mike de
Jong.
“Demand for the ser-
vices provided by Ca-
nuck Place Hospice is
increasing, and I am
pleased we are doing
the right thing by pro-
viding support,” said
Abbotsford- Mi ssi on
MLA Randy Hawes.
“Hopefully, this will
make a difference.”
The Canuck Place
expansion will help
meet the growing need
for pediatric palliative
services in the Fraser
Valley. Almost half of
the families currently
served by Canuck Place
reside in the Fraser
Health region.
The new hospice
will include a 10-bed,
2, 800- square- met re
(30,000-square-foot) fa-
cility, with suites for
five families.
The existing Vancou-
ver hospice includes
nine beds and four
family suites, so this
expansion will more
than double its physical
capacity.
“We are very grateful
to the province for their
continuing support of
Canuck Place,” said
Filomena Nalewajek,
chief executive officer
of Canuck Place.
“This will help us to
provide care to more
British Columbian chil-
dren and families.”
The province is con-
tributing $1.5 million to
the project through the
Provincial Health Ser-
vices Authority.
Additional funds will
be raised through fund-
raising efforts by Ca-
nuck Place and private
donors.
The campaign goal is
to raise $9.75 million, to
go toward construction
of the facility and oper-
ating costs.
Construction will get
underway immediately,
and the expected com-
pletion date is February
2012.
The City of Abbots-
ford has contributed
land for the project,
which will be shared
with two other organi-
zations in a campus of
care model.

The City signed a
99-year lease with the
group for $10.
Operations at the new
Canuck Place hospice
will be phased in over
a three-to-five-year pe-
riod, beginning with a
consultation team. An
outpatient clinic and
support groups will be
followed by four to five
beds open 24-hours a
day, working up to a
fully operational 10-bed
children’s hospice.
By locating the hos-
pice in Abbotsford, the
program will be avail-
able closer to home for
many families in the
Fraser Valley and the
Interior of B.C., less-
ening their need for
travel.
“Canuck Place has
helped our family
through what was the
most difficult time
we have ever faced,”
said Janet Homeniuk,
bereaved mother of
Andrew and chair of
the Family Advisory
Council. “I am so glad
that they are expand-
ing their services, so
that they can help more
families like us get the
support and services
that made a huge dif-
ference to us.”
Established in No-
vember 1995, Canuck
Place was the first free-
standing children’s hos-
pice in North America,
and just the sixth in the
world. It offers a com-
prehensive continuum
of care to over 400 chil-
dren and teens through-
out British Columbia.
Services include 24/7
physician and nursing
support and consulta-
tive services, end-of-life
care, pain and symptom
management, respite
care, school, music and
play therapy, recre-
ation opportunities and
counselling.

S
o maybe you’ve plastic-
purchased one too many
mass- manuf act ured
foreign-made gifts in
aisle 133 of your fa-
vourite big-box store and you’re
wondering, what happened to
the Christmases of old.
It still exists, at the north end
of 224th Street, at North Pole
B.C. – if you believe.
Believing in the real Christmas
spirit is the ongoing theme of
the old style yuletide that’s been
created in the cabins of Timber-
line Ranch.
Martin Miller has rented
out the place for a month and
turned it into a yuletide feast for
the imagination, young and old
alike.
But he doesn’t like to use the
word rent.
“This is the North Pole. I’d pre-
fer to say transformed. It kind of
keeps the magic there.”
In one of the rustic summer
cabins, there’s Mrs. Claus’s
kitchen, in another, a post office
where kids mail their letters to
Santa, and in another, an elf’s
workshop where kids can train
to become an elf, before they get
to see the big fat guy himself in
is own home, complete with huge
armchair and an old typewriter
for answering those letters.
“This is actually Santa Claus’s
North Pole,” Miller explains.
“It was a dream from about
two years ago. It’s an awful, aw-
ful lot of work, but it’s starting
to become successful now.
“I’ve been working on this all
year, literally full time.
“It’s not high tech. It’s not a
mall. It’s traditional Christmas,
really,” he added.
Miller is only in his 40s, but he’s
trying to capture some of the
spirit of Christmas past from his
own childhood, which even then
didn’t have the high-octane, bot-
tom-line driven commercialism
of contemporary Christmases.
While it’s only the second year,
the numbers of bookings to tour
North Pole B.C. are already fill-
ing the schedule.

All visits have to be
booked through the
website with maxi-
mums of 30 set for pub-
lic tours and 60 for pri-
vate groups. Each tour
takes about two and a
half hours with tick-
ets starting at $20 and
most of the morning
slots for school classes
already sold out. A Fa-
cebook fan page has
spurred sales.
Because all visits
have to be pre-booked,
there are no lineups.
“What we’re offering
is totally different to
what you get in a shop-
ping mall.”
This past Saturday
was opening day, with
Christmas Eve the last
day to allow Santa to
get on to his real job of
delivering toys to kids
around the world.
“We’ve got people
coming from all over
the place,” Miller said,
although the core
area is Maple Ridge,
with its abundance of
young families, Coquit-
lam and, thanks to the
Golden Ears Bridge,
Surrey and Langley.
While Miller dreamed
up the idea, and held its
first version last year
in Belcarra, set de-
signer Victoria Hardy
joined Miller for this
year’s version.
The pair has been
working full-time
on the project since
March, scouring sec-
ond-hand stores and
garage sales for old-
fashioned items that
will create the right
atmosphere.
Wooden toy soldiers,
rolling pins, old stock-
ings and tube skates,
even Mrs. Claus’s
laundry on a clothes-
line help many people
believe. Even today’s
kids, wired on Face-
book and iPods, know
the stuff in the stores
isn’t really Christmas,
says Hardy.
“The magic of the tra-
ditional Christmas …
that’s the whole thing,”
Hardy said.
“This place is just
magic.”
Even adults, after
taking the tour, say
they believe again, said
Hardy.
“We feel this is really
good for Maple Ridge.
We’re expecting a lot
of people.”

Oil tanker shipments
are much safer than
opponents have led the
public to believe, port
and industry officials
told Metro Vancouver
directors last week.
The Port Metro Van-
couver-led delegation
was dispatched to try
to bust myths and quell
public fear about tanker
safety after the recent
tripling of crude oil ex-
ports through Burrard
Inlet and the possibility
Kinder Morgan may try
to more than double the
current capacity of its
pipeline that brings oil
from northern Alberta
to its terminal in Burn-
aby.
“We practice things
like complete shut-
downs of tankers and
other vessels in narrow
passages such as Sec-
ond Narrows, loss of
engines, loss of steering
– those kinds of things,”
Port Metro Vancouver
chief operating officer
Chris Badger told Met-
ro’s port cities commit-
tee Nov. 24.
Panelists said there’s
great misunderstanding
about the “underkeel”
requirement that a ship
clear the seabed by at
least 10 per cent of its
draft.
For tankers that typi-
cally sit 13 metres deep
in the water, that in
theory means as little as
1.3 metres of clearance
– a number opponents
have seized on as far too
risky.
But that minimum
requirement applies
across the full 120-me-
tre width of the channel
tankers are permitted to
use, according to Kevin
Obermeyer, president
and CEO of the Pacific
Pilotage Authority, the
federal agency that
oversees the pilots who
guide and dock heavy
ships coming to B.C.
Only if a tanker
strayed to the shallow
edge of the channel
would it have less than
two metres of water be-
neath its bottom as it
passes the Second Nar-
rows, he said.
While centred in the
deeper water at mid-
channel – where it’s sup-
posed to be and where
it’s kept harnessed on
track by tugs – an oil
tanker would have 12
metres or more clear-
ance, he said.
Each tanker moves
through Burrard Inlet
with three tugs guiding
it and exercises have
shown they can control
the ship even if there’s
a major mechanical fail-
ure like a stuck rudder,
Obermeyer said.
Tankers move slowly
and only at slack tide
when there’s no current
and all must be double-
hulled.
If a rock pierced a
tanker’s first skin, Bad-
ger said the chances the
second would also be
breached is low.
If that did happen,
mayors demanded, how
can cleanup agency Bur-
rard Clean’s capacity to
handle a 10,000-tonne oil
spill be sufficient when
most tankers are laden
with 110,000 tonnes?
Ships are compart-
mentalized, Badger said,
so the response should
be sufficient to recover
all the oil draining from
either one main tank or
else two ruptured side
tanks.
A bigger spill than
10,000 tonnes could
draw a Coast Guard
response plus trigger
mutual aid agreements
with cleanup agencies
in Washington State.
“The movement of oil
is a risky business,” he
conceded, but said the
aim is to make it as safe
as possible.
Kinder Morgan offi-
cials say they’re far from
deciding whether to in-
crease the Trans Moun-
tain pipeline’s capacity
from 300,000 barrels a
day now to 700,000.
About 70 tankers a
year now come to Port
Metro Vancouver.
Richmond Mayor Mal-
colm Brodie said his
council wants to keep
tanker traffic off the
Fraser River – a pro-
posal would see avia-
tion fuel shipped to a
terminal in southeast
Richmond to supply the
airport.
Oil tanker fears overblown, Metro told
Mayors still concerned despite assurances

AirCare shouldn’t be
tossed on the scrap heap,
according to Metro Van-
couver’s board.
Directors voted unani-
mously last week to
extend the Lower Main-
land vehicle emission
testing program until at
least 2020.
The endorsement mir-
rors the recommenda-
tion of a multi-agency
review that found the air
quality benefits justify
continuing the tests.
AirCare has had less
impact as new cars get
steadily cleaner.
But the review’s report
found air pollution and
the resulting health im-
pacts could worsen sig-
nificantly if the program
is dismantled.
It also determined
newer vehicles do be-
come worse polluters as
they age – more so than
had been projected.
“An end to AirCare
would result in more
local air pollutants and
greenhouse gases in the
airshed, which in turn
would degrade air qual-
ity and worsen health
impacts,” said Surrey
Coun. Linda Hepner,
vice-chair of Metro’s en-
vironment and energy
committee.
Metro also wants the
AirCare program to be
overhauled to also tar-
get emissions from big
trucks that can belch out
large amounts of diesel
particulate.
There’s already a pro-
vincial government-run
AirCare on Road pro-
gram for heavy-duty
vehicles, but officials at
the regional district say
it could either be tough-
ened or rolled into the
passenger vehicle test-
ing program.
“We want to see more
done,” said Roger Quan,
Metro’s air quality plan-
ning division manager.
“Heavy-duty vehicles
are becoming more of
an issue because of the
health impacts of diesel
particulate matter.”
The $45-million annual
cost of running AirCare
testing centres is entire-
ly borne by motorists
through fees, so killing
the program would not
save TransLink or the
government any money.
Nearly half the ve-
hicles in the region are
exempt from testing be-
cause they’re less than
eight years old.
Most of the cars that
are tested are charged
$45 every two years and
pass with flying colours.
But 115,000 – 13 per
cent of those tested
– failed in 2007.
Metro votes to keep AirCare
Decision now turns

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
Garibaldi secondary’s Victoria Smith is headed to San José State University on a water polo scholarship next year after captaining the
Canadian junior women’s team to a silver medal win at the Olympic Hopes 2010 tournament in Hungary this past summer.
Maple Ridge’s Matt
Bisset scored a hat
trick Sunday as the
Vancouver North East
Chiefs topped the Cari-
boo Cougars 9-7 in a
dramatic come-from-
behind win that saw all
but two Chiefs’ skaters
make it onto the score
sheet.
The Chiefs didn’t re-
turn from Prince George
empty handed thanks
to the win, as they split
their two-game series
with the Cougars and
remain in the running
for a B.C. Major Midget
Hockey League play-off
berth.
Bissett scored the
first of his three goals
midway through the
first period to give the
Chiefs a 1-0 lead. The
Cougars pounced in
the late stages of the
period opening up a 3-1
lead. A goal early in the
second period put the
Chiefs behind by three
goals, a deficit which
was promptly erased
as they exploded for
five goals in less than
10 minutes to take a 6-4
lead.
The Cougars were able
to catch their breath
and cut the Chiefs lead
to one before the end
of the period, and the
teams headed to the
dressing room with a
6-5 score. The teams
traded goals in the final
frame, with Chiefs pot-
ting an empty-netter
with 30 seconds remain-
ing to seal the win.
Bisset registered a
five point-night, as did
Joey Santucci, who
scored a goal and four
assists. Corey Dubbel-
dam of Maple Ridge
had two goals and an
assist, while Daniel Del
Bianco, Truman Gonza-
les, Nick Hermany also
scored for the Chiefs.
The Ridge Meadows
Flames clawed their way
back into play-off conten-
tion in style Wednesday
night, obliterating the
defending Pacific Inter-
national Junior Hockey
League champion Alder-
grove Kodiaks 9-0 in their
own rink.
“We won’t start the
parade route yet,” said
Flames head coach Tavis
Eaton. “As much as we had
a good night, Aldergrove
did not play very well.”
The Flames have now
scored 15 goals in their
past two games, both
against the Kodiaks.
The difference between
Wednesday’s 9-0 win and
last Friday’s 7-6 loss, how-
ever, was the team’s de-
fensive play.
“When we play good
team defence, we win
games,” said Eaton. “You
can’t hang your goalie out
to dry, it’s not fair to them,
and we didn’t do that
[Wednesday night].”
The Flames didn’t waste
any time getting to work
on the Kodiaks, as Mat-
thew Hargreaves and
Ryan Stewart both scored
to give the Flames a 2-0
lead little more than two
minutes into the game.
The Flames kept coming,
as Dean Gilmore potted a
shorthanded goal midway
through the period to take
a 3-0 lead.
Shane Harle and Sean
Kavanagh added to the
Flames’ lead early in the
second period, prompt-
ing the Kodiaks to pull
netminder Ross Baadsik.
However, Mark Menicucci
didn’t fare much better
between the pipes as Ka-
vanagh, Hargreaves, and
team captain CJ Legassic
all scored in the second
period.
Garibaldi Grade 12 student
Victoria Smith took home
three gold medals from the
B.C. Provincial High School
Swimming Championships in
Nanaimo last month, a feat
made all the more impressive
by the fact swimming is not
even her sport of choice.
“You’re just chasing walls,”
she says. “It’s not as fun as
water polo.”
Smith has been a member of
the Canadian junior women’s
water polo team since she
was 14 years old, and recently
signed a letter of intent with
San José State University in
California. There she will play
for the Spartans’ water polo
squad, while attending school
free-of-charge, on scholar-
ship.
Her goal, she says, is the
2016 Summer Olympic Games
in Rio de Janeiro.
Smith’s Olympic dreams
were fostered at the Fraser
Valley Water Polo club, where
she trains under Olympian
Kevin Mitchell.
“He’s an amazing coach,”
she says. “I love listening to
his stories.”
The Olympics are an entire-
ly realistic goal for Smith, says
Garibaldi secondary swim
team coach, Spencer Steele.
“If she keeps with it, she
definitely has the potential to
make the Olympic team,” he
says.
If she continued competi-
tive swimming, he believes
she could even be a two-sport
Olympian.
“She’s that good.”
Steele was a member of the
Garibaldi swim team three
years ago when Smith was in
Grade 9.
“Doing my best, I couldn’t
keep up with her,” he says.
“She was already annihilating
everybody.”
Despite her obvious skill
as a competitive swimmer,
Smith is committed fully to
water polo.
“It’s a very mental game,”
she says. “You have to use ev-
ery muscle in your body, and
at the same time, you have to
think three steps ahead.”
As captain of the Canadian
junior women’s team, Smith
brought home a silver medal
from the Olympic Hopes 2010
tournament in Hungary in
July, losing to the host Hun-
garians in the final.
Upon her return from Eu-
rope, Smith impressed uni-
versity scouts at a water polo
camp last summer at the Uni-
versity of British Colombia,
securing her scholarship with
SJSU.
“It went really well for me,”
she says. “I was really in
shape at the time and at the
top of my game.”
Smith says she wants to get
the best training in the world
to improve her chances of
making the Canadian Olym-
pic team, and the NCAA is the
best place to do that.
Maple Ridge sisters Al-
lison and Kelsey Campbell
have helped pave the way
for Smith, both of whom are
playing NCAA Division 1 wa-
ter polo on full scholarships.

Jamie Waddington
had two assists, as did
Conor McCoach, while
Michael Scobie, Tyler
Martin, Jacob Wensley,
Dominic Centis, Adam
Rockwood, and Gon-
zales picked up single
helpers.
The two points puts
the Chiefs three points
ahead of the Okanagan
Rockets in the for the
sixth and final BCMML
play-off berth.
The Chiefs opened
their two-game series in
Prince George the night
before with a 3-1 loss to
the Cougars Saturday
afternoon. Unlike the
high-scoring affair on
Sunday, the Cougars
didn’t get on the board
until late in the second
period, stretching their
lead to 2-0 early in the
third.
Santucci scored to put
the Chiefs within one,
however, the Cougars
sealed their fate with
an insurance goal with
four minutes remaining
in the final frame. Bis-
sett and Martin earned
assists.
Thanks to his six-point
weekend, Bissett has
vaulted up the BCMML
scoring leader board,
and with 29 points in
just 18 games is now
fourth in the league for
scoring, and tied for sec-
ond in goals scored.
The Chiefs are on the
road again this week-
end as they travel to
Victoria to take on the
South Island Thunder-
birds. The Chiefs don’t
return home to Planet
Ice in Maple Ridge until
Saturday, Dec. 18, when
they host the Vancou-
ver North West Giants
in the first of their two-
game series.
Dustin Cervo scored
late in the third, ham-
mering the final nail
in the coffin as the
Flames finished the
night 9-0.
Mackenzie Skapski
was perfect in net for
the Flames, turning
aside all 39 shots fired
his way, earning him-
self the game’s second
star honours.
The Flames also
managed to kill all six
of the Kodiaks’ power
play opportunities.
“He was in a real
zone,” said Eaton. “He
was making saves he
had no business mak-
ing, and he was having
fun.”
Stewart grabbed
the game’s first-star
honours for his four-
point performance,
while Hargreaves was
named the game’s
third star after re-
cording two goals and
an assist.
Kavanagh also had
a three-point night,
while Gilmore, Legas-
sic, and Harle each
had two points,
Danny Brandys
picked up a pair of as-
sists, as did Matthew
Keller. Paul Piluso
picked up an assist as
well.
The win puts the
Flames back in the
play-off picture as
they hurdled past the
Mission Icebreakers
up the Harold Brittain
Conference standings
into the fourth and fi-
nal play-off berth with
18 points in 25 games.
Skapski will get
the start in net for
the Flames tonight
[Friday] on the road
against the Abbots-
ford Pilots. With the
Flames clinging on to
the last play-off spot in
the conference, it will
be a critical two points
up for grabs.
“We need those two
points,” said Eaton.
“We can be a bit Jekyll
and Hyde sometimes,
but we’ve got a great
hockey team, and the
talent is there. They
just have to believe
it.”
• The Flames next
home game is Friday,
Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
against the Richmond
Sockeyes at Planet Ice
in Maple Ridge.

Last night while in his sleep at
Maple Ridge Hospital Fran’s
Dad, Emil Kopeck rose out of
his body and winged his way
to heaven. We believe he is
now in heaven and is remem-
bering who he really is. Every-
one goes there, the good, and
by our standards the bad.
God doesn’t judge because
God is perfect and therefore
we are also. Perfection cannot
create imperfection. Be happy
for him. Pity those of us who
are still here.

harmonica playing”.
