A 125-room hotel along the Haney

Bypass could open up new tourism
opportunities for Maple Ridge and
become a catalyst for development
in the Port Haney area.
The proposed hotel cleared its
first hurdle Tuesday night as Maple
Ridge council voted unanimously to
approve the first reading of its re-
zoning application.
The site for the hotel is currently
a collection of eight residential prop-
erties, sitting largely derelict at the
intersection of Callaghan Avenue
and the foot of 224th Street. In it’s
place, local developer Multi-Well
Development plans to build 30,000
square feet of commercial space, an
upscale Asian restaurant, with 125
hotel rooms on top.

on Watson and his wife
have lived on the corner
of Selkirk and 227th for
close to 20 years, and have seen
the neighbourhood deteriorate
around them.
He’s had his workshop broken
into more times than he cares
to remember. He doesn’t even
bother phoning the police any-
more. He just cleans up the mess
and makes sure not to leave any-
thing valuable in there.
“It used to be all right down
here,” Watson says. “My daugh-
ter used to live on this street,
my son, too.”
But that was years go. They
left before the addicts and
criminals moved in and took the
area over, a steady decline that
worsened over the past 10 years,
he says.
Most of the aging war homes
on the block now sport a tou-
pee of moss upon their sagging
roofs. The picket fences have
been kicked over, the lawns
are largely overgrown, garbage
bags are used as window hang-
ings, and what little paint is left
is faded and peeling.
Ridge Meadows RCMP arrest-
ed 12 people and seized a cache
of crack cocaine, crystal meth-
amphetamine and other illegal
drugs from one of the houses on
Selkirk Avenue just two months
ago.
Soon that house, and every
other house on that block, will
all be gone.
Tuesday night, Maple Ridge
Mayor Ernie Daykin formally
announced that the District of
Maple Ridge has purchased 14
properties between Haney Place
and Valley Fair malls – includ-
ing the one Watson rents – for
$3.7 million, with the hopes the
area will be developed into a
high-density, modern residen-
tial and commercial district.
But first the district has to clear,
then sell the three-acre property.
Problem area has a
lot of potential: Gill

hivia’s mother-in-
law was killed while
steeping a cup of tea.
She had climbed out of their
underground bunker when the
sky was quiet, sneaking into
the kitchen above to make a
strong Sri Lankan brew.
There wasn’t much the family below could
do when they heard planes rumbling above.
The bomb crashed through the roof. Thivia
found her mother-in-law lying in blood, not
yet dead, a hole in her side.
Stoic, unflinching, the young mother
shrugs.
Her mother-in-law was buried near the
paddy fields they farmed under the coconut
trees that shaded her home and village in the
Vanni. There was no time to cremate her ac-
cording to Hindu traditions.
During the last five months of their 30-year
civil war, Sri Lankan government and securi-
ty forces encouraged hundreds of thousands
of civilians to move into ever smaller govern-
ment-declared No Fire Zones in the country’s
north, then subjected them to repeated and
increasingly intense artillery, mortar bar-
rages and other fire.
And it isn’t just the government who is ac-
cused of violating international humanitarian
law, says the International Crisis Group.
The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam,
fighting to create an independent state in the
north of the island country, were responsible
for killing, wounding or endangering civil-
ians, by shooting them and preventing them
from leaving the conflict zone even when in-
jured and dying.
The International Crisis Group believes
that tens of thousands of non-combatant
Tamil men, women, children and the elderly
were killed in the final five months of the war
– from January to May 2009.
The United Nations is more conservative
with their estimates and figures the conflict
had killed between 80,000-100,000 people since
it erupted into a full-scale civil war in 1983
– including unofficial and unverified tallies
showing 7,000 civilian deaths since January
2009.
Thivia’s husband Kapilan buried his friend,
split in three by a bomb, on a sandy beach. He
watched the friend’s young son cover his fa-
ther with palm fronds to shield the body from
the sun.
It was then he made the decision to leave,
flee far from all that was familiar, find peace.
The bombing may have ended, but sur-
rounded by the army, Kapilan says, his fam-
ily did not feel safe. As a Tamil, he admits, he
was protected when the Tigers ran Vanni.
Before the family left, they dug a hole be-
hind their home where they hid their photo-
graphs.
Thivia and their two children arrived in
Bangkok in October 2009 carrying all the gold
jewelry she owned - her wedding ring, fam-
ily heirlooms, keepsakes from childhood. She
never told her mother she was leaving.
Kapilan joined her a 18 days later, after brib-
ing officials at the airport in Columbo who
pulled him aside before he could board the
plane with his family.
In Thailand, where they spent six months
on a tourist visa, the family sold their gold
for passage on MV Sun Sea – four places for
$15,000, a sum collected thanks to the high
price of gold.
“I wanted to be safe,” he says, through a
translator.
“I wanted freedom.”
•••••
The rusty 59-metre 767 ton cargo ship took
three months to reach Victoria.
The Sun Sea was well-stocked, captained
by a man the passengers had nominated to
guide the ship. The man had worked as a sec-
ond-mate on an Eritrean cargo ship, he could
read navigation charts and assured them - he
would get them safely to Canada.
Kapilan calls him “a hero.”
Their daily ration on the ship included a
litre of drinking water, dried fish and rice for
lunch and porridge for dinner.
When the sea was calm, Thivia and the chil-
dren would stroll the decks. Everyone would
move below deck when the skies turned grey
and waves whipped around them. Passengers
were often sea-sick.
Below deck, Thivia kept track of the days.
She figured the ship must be close to Canada
when rations began to run low.
On Aug. 12, the MV Sun Sea was intercepted
by the Canadian Navy.
Thivia says everyone ran to the deck and
cheered when they saw the Maple Leaf.
The ship was escorted into CFB Esquimalt
the next morning, a total of 492 people on
board.
All have claimed refugee status.
To date, 307 of the MV Sun Sea passengers
have been released, including Thivia and
Kapilan, who each spent time in provincial
prisons while the Canadian Border Services
Agency tried to determine their identities
and whether they were human smugglers or
former Tamil Tiger rebels.
Of 136 who remain detained, 124 are men
who are housed in Fraser Regional Correc-
tional Centre and 12 are women who are being
held inside the Alouette Correctional Centre
for Women, two prisons in Maple Ridge.
“The CBSA continues to exercise due dili-
gence in the screening of all irregular mi-
grants for both security and criminal threats,”
said spokesperson Shakila Manzoor.
“The CBSA is committed to working with
its partners to maintain the integrity of Can-
ada’s immigration system and will exercise
due diligence in processing these individuals
according to Canadian law. The safety and
security of Canadians remains the CBSA’s
priority.”
Thus far, 15 of the men have been referred
to the Immigration and Refugee Board for ad-
missibility hearings
Melissa Anderson, a spokesperson for the
refugee board, said 14 of the 15 men are ac-
cused of being a member of a terrorist orga-
nization.
The border agency also alleges two of the 14
took part in human smuggling, while another
is being accused of war crimes.
•••••
The arrival of the MV Sun Sea and an ear-
lier ship in 2009 that also carried Tamils trig-
gered a sharp response from the federal gov-
ernment, which promised to crack down on
human smuggling and illegal migration.
As a result, last fall the Conservative gov-
ernment introduced Bill C-49 to toughen
rules. Those include mandatory jail terms for
those involved in human smuggling, deten-
tion for up to year while their status is being
determined and making those who arrive by
a smuggling operation wait five years before
they can apply for permanent residency in
Canada.

Rick Dykstra, who
spoke in Maple Ridge
earlier this month, the
government has sev-
eral reasons for the bill:
to provide fairness to
people waiting in camps
around the world who’ve
already been declared
refugees; and to prevent
more boats from arriv-
ing in Canada.
“We felt it was chal-
lenging the integrity of
our immigration pro-
cess, so we had to re-
spond to that,” added
Dykstra, parliamentary
secretary to Citizenship
Minister Jason Kenney.
“We need to take a
look at the whole immi-
gration system and per-
haps put a moratorium
on some of the groups
that are using the sys-
tem.”
The Conservatives
need 143 votes to pass
the bill, which has only
had first reading.
Opposition parties are
not eager to give it sup-
port.
The Liberals maintain
that the mandatory de-
tention provisions vio-
late Sections 9 and 10 of
the Charter of Rights
and Freedoms and Arti-
cle 31 of the Convention
Relating to the Status of
Refugees. They also say
a five-year refugee pro-
bationary period, denial
of family reunification
and of travel documents
also likely violate both
the Geneva Convention
and the International
Covenant on Civil and
Political Rights.
The LTTE, which re-
sorted to suicide bomb-
ers and child soldiers,
is listed as a foreign ter-
rorist organization in
Canada.
•••••
The Sri Lankan gov-
ernment says peace now
prevails across the coun-
try and cites the return
of refugees from India to
Sri Lanka, as well as the
return of many who were
housed in displacement
camps as evidence of a
war that has ended.
As of July, the United
Nations High Commis-
sioner for Refugees no
longer considers Tamils
as “presumptively eli-
gible” for refugee protec-
tion.
“We do not accept that
there is validity in their
claims,” says Chitran-
ganee Wagiswara, the
Ottawa-based high com-
missioner for Sri Lanka.
“The Tamil Tigers
were defeated in May
2009. Since then, there is
total peace in the coun-
try. There hasn’t been a
single bomb going off or
shooting.”
While there may be no
bombs dropping or ar-
tillery barrages, Tamils
claim that systematic dis-
crimination, intimidation
and disappearances are
still a reality in the north.
The Sri Lankan govern-
ment, dominated by the
country’s Sinhalese ma-
jority, has dismissed such
claims and points to the
creation of a “Commis-
sion on Lessons Learned
and Reconciliation” as a
tool that’s sparking heal-
ing.
Wagiswara stresses
that “systematic disap-
pearances” don’t happen
in Sri Lanka.
“Some of these facts are
exaggerated,” she says.
Last year, the United
Nations appointed a pan-
el to investigate abuses
on both sides of the con-
flict in Sri Lanka, but it
has been prevented from
entering the country.
Wagiswara explains
the panel is free to make
presentations to the gov-
ernment-appointed com-
mission, but it will not
be allowed to interview
civilians, combatants or
investigate allegations of
war crimes.
“We do not want them
to visit Sri Lanka because
we thinks it’s unneces-
sary,” says Wagiswara.
“It has been hearing
witnesses for near a year
now. It’s a domestic issue.
We would consider [a
United Nations investiga-
tion] as interference in a
sovereign country.”
The Sri Lankan gov-
ernment points out an
increase in tourists from
the south visiting the
north as a sign that ethic
tensions are mending.
“The government is
helping them,” Wag-
iswara added. “It’s start-
ing with people to people
contact.”
For Sam Nelliah, who
left his home more than
30 years ago and has
never returned, the gov-
ernment’s efforts ring
shallow.
Although he left to
study in England and
Canada well before the
civil war started, his work
with the Canadian Tamil
Congress has brought
him in contact with wom-
en with tales of rapes and
men scarred by torture.
“Nothing will change
until the government re-
alizes we are all equal,”
Nelliah says.
“Winning a war and
enslaving a race is easy,
but winning the trust and
hearts of enslaved will be
challenging. I hope the
current president of Sri
Lanka will build a genu-
ine bridge with Tamils
and restore a lasting
peace and tranquility to
the war-torn country.”

Conservation officers
are still on the hunt for
a cougar that has killed
seven farm animals in
east Maple Ridge since
the beginning of the
month.
Six soft leg-hold traps,
set Sunday after a min-
iature horse was eaten,
have failed to catch the
cat.
A goat, two other min-
iature horses, a donkey
and two sheep on the
same property in the
25700-block of 128th Av-
enue were slain in pre-
vious attacks.
“We are basically
waiting for another
call,” said Murray
Smith, with the B.C.
Conservation Service.
“There is not much
you can do until you get
a fresh sighting again.”
The cougar was last
spotted Wednesday
night by a woman who
lives on 121st Avenue
near 264th Street.
Smith said conserva-
tion officers will contin-
ue to inspect the traps
daily and will bring in
a houndsman who lives
in Maple Ridge to sniff
the cougar out, if it kills
again.
But Steve Austin, a
Maple Ridge bow hunt-
er, who snagged a cou-
gar in Bella Coolla over
the weekend, believes
leg-hold traps won’t
snare the cat.
“This is a very smart
animal,” said Austin,
who adds people should
be more cautious now
that the cougar has
honed in on easy prey.
“When the cat comes
out into public like this,
it is not afraid.”
Austin recommends
conservation officers
bring in a houndsman
whose dogs are accus-
tomed to a cougar’s
scent.
When you see a cat
closing in like this, it’s
only a matter of time
before something bad
happens, he said.
The conservation ser-
vice uses leg-hold traps
throughout B.C. and
reports they have suc-
cessfully caught many
cougars.
Cougar populations
are on the rise across
B.C., with 1,500 sight-
ings reported in the
past year across the
province.
Smith said leg-hold
traps work 24 hours
a day, while hounds
can only be used when
there’s a fresh kill.
“You want to drop the
dogs in when you know
the cougar is around.”
Hounds were not
used after Sunday’s kill
because an assessment
by the houndsman and
conservation officer
found hazards like met-
al scattered around the
property, which would
have injured the ani-
mals.
The hounds were
used two weeks prior
to Sunday.
“The houndsman is
on alert,” said Smith.
“We have these dogs
available to go out
quickly at a sighting.”

THE NEWS/opinion
S
ometimes igno-
rance is bliss.
For instance, if
you have never seen
HD television, then
the old-fashioned
color TV is just fine.
Other times, how-
ever, ignorance can be
dangerous, harmful
or even a curse. With
the H3N2 flu epidemic
raging in central, east-
ern and now northern
Canada, attacking
the young and old,
with a sizable number of fatalities, I am
still surprised with the number of people
who flatly refuse to avail themselves of a
simple, virtually harmless vaccination and
avoid being quite sick or die prematurely.
Many people are still influenced by
the fraudulent scare perpetrated by a
physician with a criminal mind who was
able to pull the wool over the eyes of the
editors of the Lancet, the medical journal
that enjoys a great reputation for being
accurate and informative for the medical
profession.
The Lancet has since retracted the ar-
ticle and the doctor has been charged.
The article claimed that childhood vac-
cinations were causing autism in some
children.
Even though the vaccines have been
exonerated, we still do not know why we
are seeing increased numbers of autistic
children. There are lots of hypotheses, but
none have been proven.
Let me briefly digress. I was born well
before the time that most of the vaccines
existed. The only vaccination we received
as infants was against smallpox, a dread-
ful disease that thankfully now has been
eradicated from the planet because of a
worldwide, well coordinated vaccination
program.
As youngsters, we lost family members,
classmates and friends to the deadly
effects of diphtheria, whooping cough,
tetanus, measles, meningitis, poliomyeli-
tis, hepatitis.
Nowadays, young doctors have never
even seen most of these diseases either
during their training or as practicing
physicians.
The absence of these diseases and their
nasty consequences has created a ho-hum
attitude among an increasing number of
individuals in the general population and
is spurred on by all kinds of myths that
they should not have their children vac-
cinated. Even though they think that they
are saving their children the discomfort
and the possible minor side effects of the
injections, they are putting their children
at risk to contract these diseases later on
in life, with sometimes dire consequences.
How did the vaccination programs
come about? In the past, when strong
and healthy individuals contracted any of
these diseases and survived, they became
immune for life even if they were ex-
posed time and again. That phenomenon
was the trigger for a number of clever
scientists to develop vaccines that would
trick the immune system of the body to
manufacture protection against the real
thing.
With the exception of the oral polio vac-
cine, all other vaccines are killed viruses
or bacteria. That includes the flu vaccine.
Therefore, it is impossible to get the dis-
ease from the vaccination, and once your
immune system has completed making
antibodies against the real disease, you
are fully protected.
The only exception is the oral polio
vaccine, which consists of a live virus that
has been modified and made harmless
and yet will trigger a immune response
to polio.
The World Health Organization, UNICEF
and the U.S. Center for Disease Control
and Prevention, with the help of more than
a million Rotarians, are waging a world-
wide campaign to rid our planet of this
dreadful disease that used to paralyze or
kill 1,000 people a day, mostly children.
The world’s greatest crippler has now
been reduced to less than 1,000 deaths per
year and it looks like it will be gone in the
near future.
Vaccines have literally saved millions of
lives and prevented even more illnesses.
In the meantime, Alberta and British
Columbia are now bracing themselves for
a wave of a miserable flu, affecting many
of those who did not get their flu shot.
There is still time to get one before the
peak of our flu season, saving you the
week or longer of wishing that you had
been sensible and made the trip to the
doctor’s office.

When Marshall McLuhan first identified in the
1960s the possibility of a post-literate society in
which a visual, individualistic print culture would
be usurped by the aural and oral culture of elec-
tronic media, the Internet, high definition televi-
sion and XBox weren’t even a gleam in futurists’
eyes.
Now, some observers say that possibility is a re-
ality. Kids spend countless hours honing their re-
flexes on video games. Watching HDTV is almost
as good as being there. And we all spend way too
much time surfing the web.
Meantime, newspapers and magazines are strug-
gling for readers. Books gather dust on shelves.
But even this so-called post-literate society re-
quires a great deal of literacy. There are labels,
instructions and guides to be read. And all those
little symbols on your computer screen? They’re
called words. Not to mention email and text mes-
sages.
That’s why Family Literacy Day – which was
Thursday – is so important.
If anything, our wired-up, plugged-in multimedia
post-literate world has made literacy essential.
Yet according to Statistics Canada, approximate-
ly nine million Canadian adults struggle with poor
literacy skills.
Imagine not understanding what’s printed on a
cereal box, bottle of medicine, DVD case, shop sign
or restaurant menu.
In fact, we do so much reading in our daily lives,
it’s easy to take literacy for granted. But none of
us were born literate. We had to work at it. Ideally,
we started that work early, when it seemed more
like play, or sharing quality time with parents or
siblings as they read stories to us, and taught us
some of the words so we could read along.
Literacy is a gift that needs to be shared. Be sure
to pass it on.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: District buys downtown lots (The
News, Jan. 26).
Something must be said about the mis-
guided plan for the core.
It is difficult to argue that the revital-
ization of the downtown area is a bad
thing, but how about this all-eggs-in-
one-basket-approach local government
is taking?
Elected officials have decided they are
going to make it happen, single-handed-
ly, purchasing the land themselves.
If the core becomes a bustling suc-
cess, we will be faced with the sort of
traffic nightmare 200th Street and Wil-
lowbrook Road saw prior to the upgrad-
ing of the freeway overpass and main
thoroughfare. People will be sitting in
their vehicles, trapped behind an end-
less, poorly coordinated train of vehi-
cles.
What is worse, there is little to no
room for such road expansion in Haney,
particularly when considering its aim-
less layout, resembling a giant strip
mall, with many shops a mere couple of
meters away from the streets.
We may be getting ahead of ourselves,
but shouldn’t a plan have a desirable
end goal, even if it is decades off and
may need a little jump starting?
The shopping district of downtown
Haney, dare we be so bold to call it,
is straddled by two critical arteries:
Lougheed Highway, including its brief
bypass twin, and Dewdney Trunk Road.
I have abandoned the bypass for Dew-
dney Trunk when commuting westward
to work. Dewdney, while littered with
lights, allows for steady, rewarding prog-
ress. Maybe I shouldn’t be letting the se-
cret out, but who doesn’t already know
that the Lougheed’s bypass affords only
fleeting relief? Then there’s the crawl all
the way to the Pitt River Bridge. Perhaps
that’s where thoughts like these were
initially conceived, in the fiery bowels of
discontent.
Hypothetically, should we force the
bulk of development downtown – and
further shopping nodes, as they are
proposed along Dewdney – our seeming
great success will be even a greater fail-
ure. We will, in effect, have destroyed no
less than one out of two viable commut-
ing routes for residents traveling west
from Albion and east Maple Ridge.
Concentrated shopping activity actu-
ally harms the other artery nearly as
much.
Think about it: downtown is bustling
with shopping. That means hordes of
people, parking and driving. Additional
people going to and from shops.
Doesn’t any one plan these things
out? Has anyone taken a measuring tape
out? How wide do the roads need to be?
We don’t all ride bikes around town like
Coun. Craig Speirs.
If the district were to announce an
alternative route, or bypass, north of
downtown as part of broader scheme,
I wouldn’t have the sense of dread that
I have today. I know, this idea is com-
pletely untenable, anyhow.
I dread what it will cost once we real-
ize what we have done and now we have
to fix it. Likely, the existing roads will
eventually have to be improved at enor-
mous costs, compensating stakeholders
closest to the road, for one. The effects
will be limited, and once again, hom-
eowners will carry the tax burden in a
town stunted by tunnel vision and nan-
nyhood methods.
Why would we deliberately overtax
these roads?
Placing significant shopping, else-
where, like in Albion, would balance
the strain of traffic, and it could help
further shape and define the emerging
identity in the east that would allow us
to share multiple identities in Maple
Ridge. That’s right, identities. Doesn’t
anyone else think it a little arbitrary to
hammer us all into the same mould?
We’re farmers, or quaint towns folks –
through osmosis – who like to spend our
time where we ought to, downtown.
The great irony is that I am begin-
ning to warm up to the welcoming light
posts lining our main street and the
interesting patterns, though jarring at
first, stamped into the fresh pavement.
More and more, I can see myself down
there, but there simply isn’t room for
all of us, much less the shopping dollars
that we hope to attract from outside our
community, especially if we don’t create
other centres or hubs.
How about a balanced approach, and
some diversified tax dollars to help pow-
er the, perhaps ingenious, self-contra-
dictory expression of urban chic, small
town quaintness we are striving for in
a remade Haney? Sort of a hicksville
Newport Village.
Oddly enough, I am starting to
grasp the idea.
Even still, just as we are asking our-
selves, how much, in Albion. Should
we not be asking the same about down-
town? The problems with planning
began long ago. When are we going to
start addressing them?

Re: Is Haney Place Mall on
Target list? (The News, Jan.
14).
The letter from the per-
son who feels that the an-
nouncement that Target
might be coming to Maple
Ridge will diffuse the Albi-
on debate just goes to show
that some people just don’t
get it. There are a couple of
things wrong with his com-
ments, in my opinion. Not
everyone wants to shop at
Target, it is not the answer
to my shopping prayers,
and replacing Zellers with
a Target sign in downtown
Maple Ridge still does not
address the need for shops
and services in Albion.
Shoppers in Maple Ridge
need some good shops and
services. Somewhere to buy
a decent pair of good leather
shoes would be nice. Aside
from the little shoe repair
place across from London
Drugs, you cannot find a
good pair of leather shoes
in this town, and their selec-
tion is limited due to the size
of the premises. We need
choice in this community
and that is something we
do not have at this time, not
even in the downtown area.
Until we get some choice
shoppers will continue to
take their spending dollars
out of this community and
into other areas in the Low-
er Mainland.

Re: Hydro smart meters coming this year (www.ma-
pleridgenews.com, Jan. 18).
I can’t wait. Being in a new house in Kelowna I already
have a smart meter installed and I’d really like to take
advantage of time-of-use pricing now.
I’ve recently moved from Ontario, where I was already
paying for electricity at time-of-use rates. Now I have
electric heat and feel I could even better manage my con-
sumption to avoid peak load times and save myself some
direct costs.
I do hope, however, that time-of-use rates are set in such
a way as to truly offset peak load costs and help make the
whole system more efficient, thus keeping overall rates
lower in the long term. There has to be a clear advantage
to using off-peak power.
Bending to the demands of large consumers who tra-
ditionally do make use of a lot of peak-load power, as
Ontario seems to have done, so far, won’t have the right
effect, either long-term for everyone, or for smart con-
sumers (big and small) who hope to immediately take full
advantage of the potential savings.
The potential savings in Ontario, so far, have been rela-
tively small and don’t seem to have convinced as many
users to shift away from peak load times.

Cougar too close
From: moytau12345, posted on www.mapleridgenews.com.
Re: Maple Ridge police on hunt for killer cougar ( www.mapleridge-
news.com, Jan. 24)
This cougar killed more animals in December. It has been spotted by
Webster’s Corners elementary. It killed a goat right beside the school.
It killed a family’s pony in mid-December, one and a half weeks after
the family reported spotting it in their field. The conservation officer
said it could not be tracked until there was a fresh kill. The family was
asked to leave the remains in the field to bait the cougar. A conserva-
tion officer was going to watch through the night with a rifle. No
officer showed up. There have been more than 10 kills now. This cougar
has been too close to our children. It’s time to get this aggressive killer.
Why not set out a bait animal? Or lure it away from this area? Yes,
these families chose to live in a country setting with large acreages,
but they also pay high taxes on their land. Time for some protection
from the conservation officers.
Animal encounters

Re: Maple Ridge police on hunt for killer cougar ( www.mapleridgenews.
com, Jan. 24)
I feel for the people who are having their livestock attacked, but I also feel
for the cougar, as well as the bears and other animals that get too close to
humans every year. It’s sad that this animal will more than likely be shot. If
we can spend the money to have someone come out and shoot it, why can’t
we spent the money to relocate it somewhere up north? We’ll always have
animal encounters, but they can easily be reduced.
Spruce it up
From: Errol Lovering, posted on www.mapleridgenews.com.
Re: District buys downtown lots (The News, Jan. 26).
Boy, that area could use some sprucing up, it’s pretty much falling apart.
It would be a wonderful area to do pedestrian shopping, adding lots more
greenery, tiled walkways, at least a few places that have an open market in
conjunction with the building itself. Let’s hope it keeps the momentum up.

Target recently purchased all the Zellers stores in Canada, but

More needs to be done
to combat scrap metal
thefts, which cost util-
ity companies millions
and cut off 911 service to
unsuspecting residents,
says a Maple Ridge scrap
dealer.
Mike Salo is the owner
of Fraser Valley Metal
Exchange, on Fisherman
Road in Maple Ridge,
and he wants police to
crack down on shady
scrap dealers buying
stolen metal.
“There’s honest scrap
yards, and there’s dis-
honest scrap yards, and
those guys should have
their business licenses
pulled,” Salo said.
Last month, 911 emer-
gency service was cut
off to more than 500
residents in east Maple
Ridge after thieves stole
copper telephone lines
along 272nd Street.
In October, three com-
memorative bronze
plaques on the Pitt River
Bridge were stolen, and
later turned up at a scrap
metal dealer cut into
more than 30 pieces. The
plaques, which had been
secured by titanium
rods, weighed more than
600 pounds combined. In
September, more than
$13,000 of copper wir-
ing was stripped from a
closed down sawmill on
River Road.
Salo said he would like
to see a system devel-
oped where scrap metal
dealers are informed of
any metal thefts so they
can be on the look-out
for the stolen merchan-
dise.
“Even an email from
the police would work,”
he said.
Telus spokesperson
Shawn Hall said the
typical copper telephone
line theft costs the com-
pany an average of
$50,000 per incident, and
nets thieves just a couple
hundred dollars.
With roughly 200 in-
cidents in the Lower
Mainland annually,
scrap metal theft costs
Telus in the range of $10
million every year.
More significantly,
however, is that copper
wire thefts often cut
911 service, which can
endanger lives should
they encounter an emer-
gency.
“These are not victim-
less crimes,” said Hall.
“They are putting our
customers’ lives at risk.”
Telus is spending more
than $650 million over
the next year to replace
much of their copper ca-
ble with high-speed fibre
optics, which are worth-
less to thieves.
Telus has also been
actively lobbying pro-
vincial and municipal
governments to enact
legislation that would
make it more difficult
for thieves to sell stolen
scrap metal, and make it
easier for police to pros-
ecute them.
“We’d like to see things
like closed-circuit TV,
so police can identify
thieves” said Hall. “Most
of the [scrap metal deal-
ers] already do that stuff,
but there are bad apples
out there, and we want
police to be able to pull
their business licenses.”
Richmond and Van-
couver have already
adopted tougher laws,
which Hall said has re-
duced thefts there.
“But what we really
need is a blanket of good
bylaws in the Lower
Mainland that are simi-
lar and enforceable,” he
said.
Maple Ridge Mayor
Ernie Daykin says he
would support such lo-
cal bylaws, but believes
it would do little to solve
the problem unless they
were part of a coordi-
nated effort with other
municipalities.
“There needs to be a
regionally coordinated
take on it,” he said. “If
we [pass a bylaw] and
Chilliwack doesn’t, then
they’ll just go there.”
Daykin said he would
like to see legislation
that requires scrap
metal dealers to require
identification and ad-
dresses from the people
they buy from, as well as
require information on
where the metal came
from.
“They should also hold
on to the material for
a certain time frame,”
Daykin said, so if the
metal is stolen, there’s
a chance of recovering it
before it gets recycled.
Coun. Craig Spiers,
discussing the issue at
Maple Ridge council’s
workshop meeting Mon-
day, said the provincial
government needs to
take the lead on this is-
sue.
“They could knee-cap
this whole industry if
they wanted,” he said.
“Why the provincial gov-
ernment hasn’t reacted,
I don’t understand.
“[It] has to take re-
sponsibility.”
However, Salo doesn’t
believe more regula-
tions, which could prove
to be costly to imple-
ment, are necessar-
ily the answer. His scrap
yard already requires
government approved
picture identification for
every customer, and that
should be enough.
“We already give our
customers the third de-
gree, and if we think it’s
stolen, we refuse them,”
he said.
“But they just go to
someone else down the
road.
“The police know who
the bad guys are, they
just need to do some-
thing.”

For the record
Results from the past three federal elections,
published in the Jan. 21 edition of The News,
featured only candidates from the Conserva-
tive, New Democrat and Liberal parties..
Green Party candidate Mike Gildersleeve
was omitted, although he received 3,833 votes
in the 2008 federal election, finishing third
overall, ahead of Liberal candidate Dan Olson,
who had 3,394 votes.
Peter Tam had been selected to represent
the Green Party in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-
Mission in the next federal election.

If the project receives
final approval from
council, the hotel would
effectively double the
number of rooms avail-
able in Maple Ridge.
Councillors lauded
the development, and
the positive affect they
hope it will have on the
neighbourhood.
“It will be quite won-
derful for a building to
occupy one of the many
vacant lots in that part
of town,” said Coun.
Linda King, who lives in
the neighbourhood.
The facility could help
boost tourism, she not-
ed, as many people who
attend events in Maple
Ridge must stay out of
town due to the lack of
hotel rooms locally.
“Hopefully this invest-
ment spurs on others,”
she said.
Seiko Huang, Multi-
Well Development’s
president, said he chose
the area because of the
views it offers over the
Fraser River, and the
central location. Huang,
originally from Taiwan,
has lived in Maple Ridge
for 20 years, and resides
a few hundred metres
away from the develop-
ment on River Road.
“There’s a lot of op-
portunity here,” he
said. “[City staff] said
they wanted a hotel
downtown, but I think
this site is better.”
Huang said he has
been in talks with Best
Western and Holiday
Inn to operate the ho-
tel as a franchise.
“We want four-star
quality,” he said, add-
ing that he hopes the
hotel will help revi-
talize the Port Haney
area, and become a
landmark for years to
come.
“It isn’t just about
making money,”
Huang said. “In Chi-
nese culture, we want
to leave something for
our children.”
Local resident John
McKenzie, who plans
on running for Maple
Ridge council later this
year, said the hotel is
another sign the neigh-
bourhood is turning
around.
“I think this is going
to be a real catalyst for
the area, and provide
some much-needed
jobs,” he said.
McKenzie feels safer
in the area since the
notorious Northum-
berland Court closed
and the nearby devel-
opment of Ridge Mead-
ows Association for
Community Living’s
Callaghan Plaza assist-
ed living apartments
were built in 2009.
“Three years ago it
was a hell hole.”
The proposed hotel is
still likely years from
completion and will
need to pass two more
readings of its rezon-
ing application, and go
to a public hearing.
“There is still some
work to do, but they
are committed,” said
Coun. Judy Dueck.
Coun. Craig Spiers
said he would like to
see traffic lights in-
stalled at the intersec-
tion of Callaghan and
the bypass, where the
hotel would be located.
“Pedestrians and
traffic do not mix,” he
commented.
Coun. Mike Morden
abstained from the
vote, citing a conflict of
interest.
“I have property
next door to this piece,
which I’m happy will
be approved,” he said
as he excused himself.
Hotel isn’t about ‘just making money’
Contributed
The hotel would have 125 rooms and, it is hoped, a four-star rating.

A two per cent hotel
room tax could gener-
ate more than $70,000
per year to help adver-
tise local tourism, the
operator of the Maple
Ridge-Pitt Meadows
visitor centre told Ma-
ple Ridge Council on
Monday.
Kristina Gervais is
the executive direc-
tor for Duckworth
Management Group,
which operates Tour-
ism Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows. Cur-
rently, the local tour-
ism board operates
on a budget of $95,000
a year, of which only
$5,000 is for market-
ing.
Signing on to the
province’s Additional
Hotel Room Tax would
help local hotels and
tourism-based busi-
nesses market them-
selves, she told coun-
cil.
“The hotel tax has
been kicked around in
the past, but I think it
needs to be revisited,”
said Coun. Craig Spi-
ers. “The bridges have
made it so much easier
to get to Maple Ridge
... I think the hoteliers
are starting to get it.
“They’ll benefit
hugely from this mar-
keting.”
In order for the tax
to be passed, hotel
owners representing
more than half the
hotel rooms in Maple
Ridge and Pitt Mead-
ows would have to ap-
prove the measure.
Maple Ridge, Pitt
Meadows and New
Westminster are the
only municipalities in
Metro Vancouver that
haven’t signed on to
the tax, which is avail-
able under provincial
legislation.
Seiko Huang, whose
company Multi-Well
Development is plan-
ning a 125-room hotel
on the Haney By-pass,
feels conflicted about
the tax.
“It’s difficult to an-
swer. Usually, as a
businessman, you try
to keep taxes low,” he
said.
While he admitted
tourism marketing
would benefit ho-
tel owners, he didn’t
think the amount of
money generated by
the tax would be suffi-
cient to properly mar-
ket the local area.
“The government
should have enough
money [to fund tour-
ism marketing],”
he said. “They take
enough tax.”
Even with his hotel
development, which
stands to double the
number of rooms avail-
able locally, Huang
said he believes there
will still be unmet de-
mand for hotels.
“We need more
rooms to support
tourists,” he said. “If
you don’t have good
hotels, you will never
grow.”

New look for tourism centre
• The Pitt Meadows visitor centre is currently undergoing a
“refresh and relaunch,”with a new look, more signage, and a
Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows shop, showcasing local products.
The visitor centre should be ready by April, said Kristina Gervais
of Tourism Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
• From February to December 2010, the centre had 3,870
visitors, the majority of which were local residents. The Tour-
ism Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows website (www.mapleridge-
pittmeadows.com) received close to 13,000 unique visitors
from May to December.

Adopt an instrument
Members of the group The Latency, former Garibaldi Secondary students, Brandon Lehti (right) and Ryan Stead
performed for students of Whonnock Elementary on Wednesday during an assembly for the donation of musical
instruments through Music B.C.’s Shore 104.3 FM Adopt An Instrument Program. The school received 30 acoustic
Epiphone guitars, a drum kit and a keyboard for its music program. Music teacher Geoff Westby applied for the
grant in October 2010 and got approval in December. He is hoping to reinvigorate the music program at the school.

The District of Maple
Ridge is cracking down
on the temporary
tents many residents
use to store vehicles
and boats through the
winter.
Robin Morgan lives
on 207th Street, and
recently received a let-
ter from the district
informing him the
200-square-foot white
canvas tent he uses to
house his 18-foot plea-
sure boat for the win-
ter had to go.
“I don’t see what the
problem is,” he said.
The tent is anchored
to the concrete so it
won’t blow away, and
he even asked his
neighbours if they had
an issue with it.
“They don’t have a
problem,” he said. “I
don’t see the harm.”
The letter Morgan
received from the dis-
trict, and was received
by several of his
neighbours with simi-
lar structures, quoted
a zoning bylaw which
prohibits the use of
any tent or trailer.
“According to the by-
law, I can’t even put up
a tent in the backyard
for my grandkids to
play in,” he said.
Technically, that’s
true, says Liz Holitzki,
the District of Maple
Ridge’s director of li-
censing, permits, and
bylaws.
The issue isn’t that
tents are an eyesore,
she said, it’s safety.
“There’s no stan-
dards for these struc-
tures,” Holitzki said.
Tents aren’t made to
handle snow loads, and
could easily blow away
in high winds, causing
damage to neighbour-
ing properties. Should
the car or boat housed
in the tent get dam-
aged by snow or wind,
the insurance claim
could be nullified.
“The first thing
we’re asked by insur-
ance companies is if
these structures are
legal,” she said. “If
they aren’t, that’s it,
no claim.”
Form-fitting boat
covers are allowed
under the bylaw, as is
polyethylene plastic
marine shrink wrap.
Tarps, however, are
not.
“If there is any sort
of air space between
the cover and the car
or boat, then it is not
allowed,” said Holitz-
ki.
If the tents don’t go,
a fine could be levied
between $100 and $300,
per day.
The tents are a com-
mon sight in many
neighbourhoods, but
Holitzki said bylaw of-
ficers aren’t driving up
and down the streets
looking for these sorts
of infractions.
“If you get a letter,
then someone has filed
a complaint,” she said.
Tents must come down, says district
Even pup tents
violate bylaw
Robin Morgan
holds a notice he
received from the
District of Maple
Ridge that says
his outdoor stor-
age tent for his
boat, on the left,
is in violation of
zoning bylaw. He
has until Feb. 8 to
remove it.

10. They are inaccurate.
Students know that the scores do not “count” for the report card,
so some do not do their best work.
9. They are impractical.
Reading and Math in real life are not a series of multiple choice
questions!
8. The marks are invalid.
Ministry of Education markers are given 10 minutes to mark each
FSA booklet. They may not even have time to read the
students’ completed work!
7. The costs are downloaded.
The Ministry of Education only funds part of the FSA costs. Our
School Board is forced to make up the shortfall out of children’s
programs.
6. They are unhelpful.
Student answer sheets do not reveal areas that need more teaching.
5. They reduce learning and instruction time.
Practicing for and writing the FSA steals valuable learning
time from students and instruction time from teachers.
4. They are incomplete.
FSA results are based on raw scores on just one test of reading,
writing, and numeracy. The results are not reliable, valid or fair.
3. They are unnecessary.
Report cards are a more reliable measure of a student’s overall
progress with evidence from diverse assessments over the term.
2. They are unsupported by any funding.
Test results bring no additional funding or support to
students or schools, even if needs are identified.
1. They invite misuse.
Test results are often misused by third parties to create
unauthorized school “rankings.” This is like comparing all
NHL teams based on one game in February!

EAR INFECTIONS
AN UNCOMMON SOLUTION
TO A COMMON PROBLEM
16 -- Friday, January 28, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
The Maple Ridge-Pitt
Meadows Board of Edu-
cation is making its an-
nual let’s-be-friends plea
on Foundation Skills As-
sessment testing.
This time, however,
trustees are hoping the
administrators jumping
into the fray will help get
both sides talking.
On Wednesday, the
board approved a letter
be sent to the province
and the B.C. Teachers
Federation, calling for
the two sides to discuss
ways to come to a con-
sensus on the controver-
sial FSA.
Trustee Susan Carr
said, in light of the head
of the B.C. Principals’
and Vice-Principal’s As-
sociation, Jameel Aziz,
calling for a different
method of testing, it was
still worthwhile making
the request.
“Everybody does a let-
ter every year, but with
a partner group stepping
up to make a change, it
could make it something
useful so we don’t have
to go through this politi-
cal football every year,
so that we don’t have to
put kids and parents in
the middle,” said Carr.
Although the province
has made annual FSA
testing mandatory for
Grade 4 and 7 students,
the BCTF has encour-
aged parents to with-
hold their children from
taking them because
too much valuable class
time is taken up prepar-
ing for them. The BCTF
is also opposed to the
right-wing Fraser Insti-
tute using the results to
rank schools.
Board chair Ken Clark-
son said, just like with
telling kids what to do,
there’s a need to keep
repeating the message
to get the warring sides’
attention.
“It’s exasperating,”
said Clarkson. “There
has been not one single
discussion between the
provincial government
and the BCTF on his is-
sue and that’s sad.”
Kwantlen credit
Kwantlen Polytech-
nic University has ap-
proached the Maple
Ridge-Pitt Meadows
school district to es-
tablish a university
academy program that
would allow students to
take university courses
while in high school.
While supportive
of the concept, board
trustees have directed
Stewart Sonne, the
district’s director of
secondary education,
to explore the proposal
further with Kwantlen.
Sonne said there are
many issues that need
to be clarified, such
as what courses will
be offered, the cost,
the transferability of
credits to other area
post-secondary institu-
tions, and whether the
courses will be taught
by district or university
staff.
“There’s a bunch of
questions still here,”
Sonne told the board.
“I wouldn’t bring this
forward unless I was
pleased, but I still have
questions.”
Survey planned
Although there
are no plans on the
books to shut down
any more schools,
the Maple Ridge-Pitt
Meadows board of
education is going to
survey the parents
of children forced to
change schools fol-
lowing the closures of
Mount Crescent and
Riverside elementa-
ry schools about the
transition.
When they were
closed last June,
about 275 students
were attending the
two schools that had
a combined capacity
of 871.
The moves saved the
school district $900,000
annually.
At Wednesday’s
board meeting, super-
intendent Jan Unwin
presented a survey to
be sent out to parents,
asking their opinion
on what the district
did well in handling
the closure process,
what it could improve
on if there are any fu-
ture closures or “dif-
ficult situations,” and
any other advice or
feedback.
Trustees, however,
directed district staff
to also ask parents
how their children
are coping with the
transition to their new
schools, and to solicit
feedback from affect-
ed school staff as well.
Trustees want FSA tests discussed

Women Helping Women and Girls
Soroptimist International of the Americas is an international women’s volunteer
organization helping women and girls around the world in the areas of domestic
violence, economic stability and gender equality. In January 2009, “Soroptimist
International Ridge Meadows” was chartered to improve the lives of women and
girls in the communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
By holding fundraisers and donating educational monetary awards, Soroptimist
International Ridge Meadows is able to assist women and girls locally and glob-
ally find their way out of poverty and abuse by bringing awareness to those who
are more fortunate.
Since chartering, we have held three very successful fundraisers in our community.
The first benefitted our local Cythera Transition House for abused women, the
second benefitted the women and children who survived the genocide in a village
in Rwanda, and our third benefitted the Friends in Need Food Bank in purchasing
personal hygiene items for women and children. Our events benefit various pro-
grams throughout the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows communities that support
and enhance the lives of women and children.
We appreciate that most families and businesses limit their spending in these
tough economic times, but we ask for your support so we may continue to bring
essential items and services to the women of our community.
You may support our club in several ways:
• If you are a woman, consider becoming a member of this wonderfully
diverse club, make friends, network, and have fun while helping those less
fortunate.
• Donate an item(s) for our silent auctions or door prizes
• Monetary donations
• Purchase tickets to attend our events • Offer women-oriented services
• Donate products to subsidize expenses of our events (food, beverage & supplies)
Sponsorship benefits such as these are a way to build visibility for your company
and to connect with your local community for the greater good.
On behalf of Soroptimist International Ridge Meadows, we humbly solicit your
support of our club and the volunteer mission on which we have embarked, in
helping women and girls in Ridge Meadows.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or a member of our club, and want to
join us on this incredible journey to make our world a better place, please contact
Eileen English, President, at siridgemeadows@soroptimist.net For more informa-
tion about Soroptimist International of the Americas or Soroptimist International
Western Canada, please refer to the following websites: www.soroptimist.org and

MEDICINAL CANNABIS
www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Friday, January 28, 2011 -- 17
I
was teaching a Grade 9 com-
puter class this past semester.
We did the typical things you
should in such a class. We looked
at the components of hardware
that were part of a computer. We
looked at the physical structure
of a network and the physical
structure and lack of regulatory
opportunity of the internet.
We then went to the utilization
of software for word processing,
databases, spreadsheets, desktop
publishing, audio and video edit-
ing and graphic design.
We also talked about a host of
legal issues related to copyright
matters, intellectual property
theft, personal privacy and cen-
sorship.
And as a final project, I asked
students to design the perfect
school that would utilize technol-
ogy and motivate the majority of
students to succeed.
I must confess that it took a bit
of prodding to get students to
think creatively. Learning comes
from experience, and while these
students have been in school for
almost 10 years, they’ve attended
a structure well established and
understood by them and their
parents. They’ve never really
thought about what goes on be-
hind the scenes to create a school
or education system.
When I opened the project
instructions with the line, “I
think the current school system
is irrelevant,” I got their attention
pretty quickly.
I asked them to consider the
fact that a
good educa-
tion is very
important,
not just to the
individual,
but to the en-
tire society.
We spoke
about the fact
that everyone
learns dif-
ferently and
how the cur-
rent school
system was
often viewed by many students as
a place that holds them back from
doing what they want to do rather
than motivating them to try new
things. I asked how many of them,
given the choice, would not want
to come to school on a daily basis
if there was an option.
Aside from a hit to my ego, since
I was teaching this group two of
its four courses this semester, I
was not particularly surprised to
find that the majority of students
would not attend. I asked them
what they would do, instead,
knowing that they needed a
decent education. Their response
was not as easily determined as
was the vote of whether to attend,
but was insightful to me and a
good stimulant to thought for the
beginning of the project.
The majority of the students
said that they would spend their
time on-line, learning what they
wanted to learn. A few said they
would focus on their skateboard-
ing or snowboarding or some
other physical endeavour and a
few said they would spend more
time painting or playing a musical
instrument. In other words, there
was virtually no student who said
he or she would lie around and do
nothing all day, although there
were a few glassy-eyed gazes
from those who I suspect might.
As I invited them to open a
blank page on the delivery of
education to students and rede-
sign it from the ground up, I was
pleasantly surprised with their
commitment to the task and they
were unpleasantly surprised with
the complexity of coming up with
something that they felt would
work.
Although I insisted that there be
no judgement of ideas until time
had been spent really analyzing
them, there was much heated dis-
cussion about the practicality of
many. Once again, to my surprise,
I often found their views even
more conservative than mine,
and that’s saying something. It
turns out, there’s a big difference
between complaining about the
current system and coming up
with something better.
Over the next couple of weeks, I
am going to offer up some of their
best ideas, and maybe a few crazy
ones, to add a little insight to the
thinking of adolescents when it
comes to schooling.

18 -- Friday, January 28, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
The district began serving evic-
tion notices to the residents on the
remaining 10 occupied properties
earlier this month. Paul Gill, the dis-
trict’s general manager of corporate
and financial services, said everyone
living there should be out within
three months.
He added that the district is trying
to help residents find new accommo-
dations, and put them in touch with
various social agencies if they can’t
find a place to live.
“We’re the lucky ones, we got some-
where to go,” says Watson.
He and his wife have bought a home
on 128th Avenue, and have already
started moving.
“Most of the people around here,
they don’t have any money, so I don’t
know where they’ll find a place,” he
says. “This area will be a lot nicer,
but those people are just going some-
where else.”
Once all the residents have moved,
Gill says the entire block, from Sel-
kirk Avenue to 119th Street, will be
bulldozed and flattened to make way
for future development.
“This is a problem area,” he says.
“But there’s a lot of potential there.”
For years, Gill says people have
been asking the District to do some-
thing with the land between the two
malls. With its purchase, the District
now controls its fate.
“I think this is going to prove to be
a great acquisition,” he says.
Lisa Blaine, who manages the
Warm Hearth Heating Centre at the
corner of 226th Street and Selkirk
Avenue, won’t miss that motley col-
lection of rotting houses one bit.
“The police are always down there.
There’s just constant drama,” she
says. “It’s going to be a lot nicer
knowing those places won’t be there
anymore.”
Even a vacant lot is preferable to
what is now there, she said.
“I’m excited. I think its going to be a
really good thing for the downtown.”

20 -- Friday, January 28, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
A man was kicked and
punched by two strang-
ers while walking in
downtown Maple Ridge
Wednesday night.
The man was on 122nd
Avenue, near 222nd
Street, when he was ap-
proached by a pair of
men around 10:30 p.m.
Ridge Meadows RCMP
Insp. Derren Lench said
one of the men, without
provocation, punched
the victim, causing him
to lose his balance and
fall to the ground.
A second man then
kicked him before both
suspects fled towards
Dewdney Trunk Road
on 222nd St.
Police patrolled the
area, but were unable to
locate the men.
The men were dressed
in black clothing, with
the first wearing a black
skeleton mask.
• Anyone with any in-
formation is asked to call
RCMP at 604-463-6251.
To remain anonymous
call CrimeStoppers at
1-800-222-8477 or leave
a tip online at www.
bccrimestoppers.com.
CrimeStoppers will pay
a reward of up to $2,000
for information leading
to an arrest and convic-
tion.
Alarmed
Ridge Meadows RCMP
are crediting a security
alarm for scaring off
thieves who tried to
break into a house on
Wednesday.
The alarm was trig-
gered around noon at a
house on Silver Valley
Road after a window
was forced open.
Senior home safe
Ridge Meadows RCMP
helped an 83-year-old
woman get home safely
on Wednesday.
Police received a call
about the disoriented
senior around 10:45
a.m. after she told a
passer-by she did not
know where she was.
Police were able to
glean enough informa-
tion from the woman to
locate her home, which
was not far away from
where she was found on
Dewdney Trunk Road.
Break-in
Cash was stolen from a
register during a break-
in early Wednesday at a
business in Maple Ridge.
Police were called
about the theft at
Lougheed Nails just be-
fore 2:30 a.m.
Thieves entered the
business by tampering
with the front door lock.
Punch drunk
A 40-year-old man
was arrested by police
early Wednesday after
he punched a Mountie
while drunk.
Ridge Meadows RCMP
were called to a house on
224th Street just after 1
a.m. by the home owner,
who requested officers
remove the man from
the home.
Insp. Derren Lench
said the man was intoxi-
cated.
“As police were try-
ing to wake the man up,
he punched one of the
officers in the face,” he
added.
The man was forcibly
taken into custody.
He was held until he
sobered up and released
with a court date set for
February.
Violation
A 28-year-old man was
arrested by police Tues-
day after he was found
violating a probation
order.
Police were called
about the man around
11:30 p.m. after he was
seen prowling in the
24900-block of Dewdney
Trunk Road.
When officers found
the man, he was intoxi-
cated, said Insp. Derren
Lench.
A check of police re-
cords showed the man
had a probation order
that prohibits him from
drinking alcohol.
The man was arrested
and held for a court ap-
pearance on Wednes-
day.
Pedestrian dies
A Maple Ridge senior
died Tuesday from in-
juries he received after
being struck by a car in
December.
The 73-year-old was hit
by a car just after 7 a.m.
on Dec. 20 while trying
to cross Dewdney Trunk
Road, near 256th Street.
He was rushed to hospi-
tal, but passed away Jan.
25 from complications
related to the crash.
Insp. Derren Lench
said investigators are
now looking for more
witnesses to come for-
ward.
The driver involved
remained on scene fol-
lowing the accident and
has been interviewed by
police.
“This is a very tragic
event, and I pass on
our condolences to the
victim’s family,” Lench
added.
“Our traffic services
are investigating the
matter in the hopes these
type of incidents do not
repeat themselves or are
reduced.”
Investigators believe
“pedestrian-error” may
be responsible for the ac-
cident.
The name of the victim
is being withheld at this
time.
• Anyone who wit-
nessed this accident
is asked to call Ridge
Meadows RCMP at 604-
463-6251.
TV thief
A man who stole a
television from a Pitt
Meadows mall on Mon-
day was arrested by
police.
Ridge Meadows RCMP
allege the 39-year-old
Maple Ridge resident
took the TV from Super-
store in Meadowtown
centre around 5:30 p.m.
He was seen getting into
a pickup truck, which
left the parking lot.
The truck managed
to elude a witness who
was following it, but a
police officer spotted
the truck a short while
later in the 12100-block
of Edge Street in Maple
Ridge.
The truck was stopped
and the man was ar-
rested. He was released
from custody but will be
back in court in April.

W
hen tragedy
hits, it’s often
natural for us
to ask, why?
The book of Job is
filled with moments
when Job asks the ques-
tion, why?
It’s OK to ask God,
why, as long as we don’t
get the idea that He
somehow owes us an
answer.
God does not owe you
or me an explanation.
Yet we may still won-
der, why?
If the Lord did tell you
why things happen the
way they do, would that
ease your pain or heal
your broken heart?
It would raise even
more questions.
God says, “My ways
are above your ways,
and my thoughts above
yours.”
We live on promises,
not explanations, so
we shouldn’t spend too
much time asking God
why.
When my youngest
sister battled and later
died of cancer, I really
struggled and asked,
why?
I don’t know.
That is my answer.
Chuck Smith once said
that we should never
trade what you don’t
know for what you do
know.
I know God
loves me. I
know God
loves our fam-
ily. I also know
God can make
good things
come of bad.
So I will
stand on what
I know, instead
of what I don’t
know.
In his com-
mentary on
the book of Job, Chuck
Swindoll wrote: God
never promised He
would inform us all
about His plan ahead of
time; He’s just promised
He has one. Ultimately,
it’s for our good and His
glory. That’s why we
shrug and admit, ‘I don’t
know.’ “
The Bible says, The
secret things belong to
the Lord our God – Deu-
teronomy 29:29.
We need an eternal
perspective. In John 11,
after the unexpected
death of her brother,
Martha spoke to Jesus
and said, “Lord,” Martha
said to Jesus, “if you had
been here, my brother
would not have died –
John 11:21.
Martha
was saying to
Jesus, “This is
unfair. It’s not
right!” But she
still cried out
to Jesus.
That is what
we must do
as well. Go
to Jesus with
your frustra-
tions, anguish,
and questions.
Call out to
Him. Just make sure you
listen to His response.
Jesus did not correct
Martha for making this
statement. Rather, He
sought to get Martha
back to an eternal per-
spective here.
Jesus said to her, Je-
sus said to her, “I am the
resurrection and the life.
The one who believes in
me will live, even though
they die; 26 and whoever
lives by believing in me
will never die. Do you
believe this?” – John
11:25-26.
Death is not the end.
Jesus has overcome it.

I
t’s high time to be
out there with prun-
ing shears in hand,
cleaning up our trees
and shrubs. But we also
must be a little cautious
with some of our plants
to make sure we don’t
prune off this year’s
flowers and fruits.
We all have flower-
ing shrubs that have
simply grown too large
too quickly and need
to be pruned back to
maintain their appear-
ance and the integrity of our landscapes.
If we prune some plants too vigour-
ously now, we risk losing all the beautiful
colour that we’ve been waiting to enjoy.
As a rule of thumb, I like to prune out
the dead and diseased wood that is so
easy to spot at this time of year, as well
as those long, leggy branches that have
simply stretched too far.
The main flowering branches I always
leave until the flowers have finished
blooming, then I prune the entire plant
back to a nicely formed, attractive plant.
Some of the flowering shrubs in this
category: flowering quince (chaenom-
eles), Cornelian cherry (Cornus mas),
forsythia, corylopsis, Kerria japonica,
daphne, Beauty Bush (kolkwitzia), enki-
anthus, flowering currant (ribes), fother-
gilla, early-blooming spiraeas, lilacs and
deciduous viburnums.
The flowering shrubs that bloom on new
wood can be pruned back at this time of
year and still provide a good display of
colour. When you prune these plants,
however, try to prune back a lot of the old
hard wood, leaving the supple new growth
that will branch easily when pruned and
will provide not only a more attractive
plant, but also good foliage from top to
bottom.
Some of these flowering plants that can
be pruned now and still give you a nice
showing this year: buddleias, potentil-
las, shrub dogwoods, hardy rugosa roses,
hardy fuchsias, late blooming spiraeas,
tamarix, weigelas and the late summer
blooming P.G. hydrangeas.
Mophead and Lace Cap hydrangeas need
special attention because their buds are
already formed for next season. Some
of these buds are on the tips of young
branches, others are on the sides of older
branches and many are down low near the
base of the stems. With a little care, you
can prune above the buds on the stems to
even out the plant while still preserving
the buds for a good showing this year.
Both Japanese and deciduous azaleas
have all their buds formed and are ready
to bloom, so leave any pruning until after
all the flowers have finished, at which time
they can both be pruned fairly hard to
maintain a compact and attractive plant.
A few flowering shrubs bloom best on
last year’s growth, so it’s important to
keep enough old wood to make a great
display. The beautiful Chinese witch ha-
zels (hamamelis), which are making such
a splendid display right now, are a good
example of this type of plant.
One of my favourite winter bloomers,
Viburnum ‘Pink Dawn’ , is another good
example of plants that bloom best on old
wood.
Once you have done a little pruning and
have come to know your flowering shrubs,
it’s fun to both improve their shape and
increase their flowering effect in your
landscape. Most of these shrubs can also
be sprayed now with lime sulphur and
dormant oil to clean them up.
Closer to the growing season, a good ap-
plication of 10-14-21 fertilizer, or a similar
formulation, will make a huge difference
in their bud and flower quality.

Gardens just outside of Chilliwack.

off the kitchen. There is ample parking available whether it is on your
driveway or in your covered carport; that could easily be converted into
a garage. This spectacular home is close to playgrounds which is ideal
for children or pets. And the lack of stairs makes it ideal for retirees or

Advocates of a modern
light rail line connect-
ing the Fraser Valley
from Surrey to Chilli-
wack say the province’s
new study recommend-
ing expanded bus ser-
vice never gave trains
an honest chance.
Rail For The Valley
founder Jon Buker ac-
cuses the transporta-
tion ministry-led study
of “extreme bias” by
using “grossly inflated”
cost estimates to under-
mine the case for a light
rail service running on
the old Interurban cor-
ridor.
He said the study is
what he expected – one
“designed simply to
discredit light rail and
push Victoria’s agenda
for rapid bus implemen-
tation for the Fraser
Valley.”
The Strategic Review
of Transit in the Fraser
Valley estimated it
would cost $112 mil-
lion a year to launch a
98-kilometre heavy rail
commuter line – akin to
the West Coast Express
– from Surrey to Chilli-
wack or $176 million
annually for a light rail
line that could serve
more passengers.
It said the region in-
stead needs a $90-mil-
lion-a-year investment
in local and regional
buses that would prom-
ise frequent service ev-
ery 15 minutes or less
over a wide area and
include express buses
to haul people longer
distances.
That would be a big
jump from the $11 mil-
lion a year currently
spent on transit service
in the Fraser Valley Re-
gional District.
Buker said a key flaw
in the study is it based
all its rail costs on a
West Coast Express-
type heavy rail service,
which requires signifi-
cant double-tracking
and other rail infra-
structure upgrades,
particularly in Surrey.
Consultants extrapo-
lated the higher costs
in that area through-
out the route, he said,
and then also used
them in preparing the
estimates for light rail,
which wouldn’t require
nearly as much upgrad-
ing.
The review found
track upgrading costs
would add up to $18.6
million per kilometre.
A study commis-
sioned last year by Rail
For The Valley and an
earlier consultant’s re-
port for the City of Sur-
rey had both found a
light rail service could
be launched for much
less – $5 to $6 million
per kilometre – on the
existing tracks that
once carried Interurban
trams until the 1950s.
“A far more afford-
able system achieving
the same basic level of
service can be built,”
he said.
Buker also contends
the provincial study
low-balled the num-
ber of passengers who
would take trains and
predicted three times
as many people would
use the proposed en-
hanced bus transit sys-
tem.
“If the Fraser Valley
can support hourly bus
service, or even half-
hourly bus service, it
can also support light
rail, whose operating
costs over the lifetime
of the vehicles tend to
actually be lower, when
all costs are taken into
account,” he said.
Better bus service
is a good idea, Buker
said, but he noted just
one per cent of val-
ley residents now take
buses and improving
ridership will require
a “light rail backbone”
across the region.
Critics of heavier West
Coast Express-type
trains say they tend to
mainly serve commut-
ers going to downtown
Vancouver and fail to
provide all-day regular
service connecting lo-
cal centres.
That’s an important
distinction because
80 per cent of all alley
trips are by residents
travelling in their own
community, not making
long commutes across
the Lower Mainland.
Any improved transit
study would need to
be funded, possibly by
a local gas tax in the
Fraser Valley Regional
District.
‘Study stacked against valley trains’
Cost, passenger
estimates in
review hit for ‘bias’

heavy rail service like the West Coast Express, rather than accurately costing out a
modern light rail option.

How to Meet Life’s Challenges
& Still Maintain a Positive Attitude
Do you find it hard to keep going when
life’s problems seem to be confronting you
wherever you turn? Do you get the feeling that
you are being kicked when you are down? Do
you find yourself losing productivity while you
are worrying about the problems facing you?
These are some of the questions that Zosia
Ettenberg will address in her topic, “How to
Meet Life’s Challenges & Still Maintain a Positive Attitude.” Zosia has
faced many challenges throughout her life particularly in the past 10
years. Starting with the loss of mobility (due to complications following
surgery), the loss of her career, the loss of her husband, the financial
devastation following that loss and just when she was finally getting
things together to carve out a new life for herself, she was diagnosed
with Breast Cancer. Through all the ensuing surgery and treatment
she managed to start a new career, write a book, and start her own
business after she was fired from her position due to restructuring.
In 1999 she won the Women of Excellence Woman of the Year Award.
In 2007 she again was honored with the Women of Excellence
Humanitarian Award for Community Service. In 2008 she won the
Courage to Come Back Award.
Zosia now forges ahead with the help of her assistance dog, Rumor.
She started a nonprofit society called Langley Pos-Abilities Society to
help people in her community, who need assistive devices, obtain them
and improve their quality of life. Zosia will share her ideas on how to
keep going and her philosophy “you can’t control what life gives you
but you can control how you respond to it!”

FARMED SALMON
ARE AU NATUREL
Just like you, salmon farmers want their food
natural, nutritious, and free of contaminants.
That’s why there are no growth hormones
added to BC farmed salmon. Nor are there
any dyes—both farmed and wild salmon get
their colour from the pigments they ingest as
part of their diet. Antibiotics and medical
treatments are used rarely and only on the
advice of a veterinarian. And just for the
record, there are no genetically engineered or
modified fish in BC farms. At the end of the
day the only real difference between farmed
and wild salmon is that the farmed ones
know where their next meal is coming from.
WE ALL WANT
HEALTHY FISH
For a modern salmon farmer their salmon’s
health is one of their biggest priorities. Over
the past decade innovations in techniques
have changed how salmon farmers keep
their fish healthy. Today, farmed salmon fry
are vaccinated against diseases they may
pick up from wild salmon or other fish.
Divers keep a lookout for signs of illness or
disease and report any concerns to
veterinarians. Preventative dosages of
antibiotics are strictly forbidden; only sick
fish may be treated. These steps help
salmon farmers ensure their investment
grows up healthy and strong. And delicious.
THERE ARE 2 THINGS
EVERYONE KNOWS
ABOUT SALMON
They make a great brunch food and they are
an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids,
which can help prevent heart disease,
reduce cancer risk, and lower cholesterol.
What everyone doesn’t know is that farmed
salmon isn’t just a great source of healthy
Omega-3s (specifically DHAs), it’s recognized
as one of the best sources in the world. Great
for you and great on a bagel; that’s win win.
HEALTH BENEFITS
OF SALMON DON’T
END WITH OMEGA-3s
High in protein, low in saturated fat, salmon
is loaded with vitamin D and E. It also
contains large amounts of vitamins B6 and
B12, along with niacin, selenium, and
magnesium too. Little wonder why Health
Canada and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture confirm both farmed and wild
salmon as a healthy food choice.
SALMON FARMERS WOULD NEVER
ADD CHEMICALS TO THEIR SALMON.
WAIT, IS DILL A CHEMICAL?

Sharpshooter for Pitt Meadows hoops squad to take his talents to T-Birds after tutelage under veteran senior boys coach Rich Goulet
A
s a kid, Malcolm Williams, his brother
Christiaan and sister Haeley would
play hoops in the family driveway. The
competitive juices flowed freely and he loved
it, except for one thing. Since Christiaan was
seven years older he was always winning.
“I didn’t like that one bit,” says the
17-year-old Pitt Meadows secondary basket-
ball guard. “Playing against my brother he
roughed me up and beat me up. It definitely
made me tougher. I definitely didn’t like
getting beaten up.”
It was definitely good for his game, though.
Good enough that Pitt Meadows senior boys
coach Rich Goulet says when Williams ar-
rived at the school in Grade 9 he could have
played for the Marauders senior team. Now
he’s good enough that the University of B.C.
Thunderbirds have recruited the 6-foot-2,
190-pound shooting guard to join their men’s
hoop team next season. He chose UBC partial-
ly because it was close to home. He could still
get to eat his mom’s cooking. “She makes a
great mac and cheese dish. I just love it.” And
his family could come to watch his games.
One family member, however, who won’t
be in the stands is his older brother. Williams
says three years ago, Christiaan was going
down the wrong path and ended up taking
his own life. Williams admits his Christiaan’s
death affected him “big time.”
“My brother was someone I looked up to. It
was definitely a tough loss. It was almost like
motivation to take sports as far as I can, to do
it in my brother’s name,” says Williams.
Goulet says because of Christiaan’s death
it seems like Williams tries to balance his life
and doesn’t get depressed when things aren’t
going well. The veteran coach has seen the
family out playing basketball on the anniver-
sary of Christiaan’s death.
“Malcolm honours his brother,” says Gou-
let, who also had a brother that committed
suicide. “That kind of tragedy you deal with
those things. Sometime it’s harder than other
situations.”
Williams’ development has benefited in a
big way from the tutelage of Goulet, who has
been coaching elite level basketball in this
province for more than a quarter of a centu-
ry. Williams has played in Goulet’s off-season
Centre for Performance and on provincial
teams in the summer.
“Malcolm is the king, or the prince. I call
him both,” says Goulet with a hearty laugh.
“He’s the guy everybody respects and every-
body wants to play with. He’s the guy.”
At last year’s AAA provincial champion-
ships, Williams was the only Grade 11 starter
on a Marauder squad that finished fourth.
Goulet says Williams had some ankle and
foot problems that affected his play in the
grueling tourney. In recent games this sea-
son, he’s been pumping in at least 20 points
per game which is quite an accomplishment
with Goulet’s team-first style of play.
“The guy can do a lot of different stuff and at
the same time gives you the appearance that
he’s floating and there’s a lot more there. And
you know what, there is,” says Goulet. “He
can score, he can downright score.”
Against Walnut Grove in Langley on Tues-
day night, Pitt Meadows trailing 61-56 five
minutes into the fourth quarter. Williams
ended up scoring 30 points, in addition to five
assists and five rebounds, as the Marauders
defeated the Gators 74-63.
“When we needed to get back in the game
we gave him the ball and said go,” says Gou-
let. “Malcolm is tough to match up against
because he’s fast and athletic. People have a
hard time handling him.”
Williams is a big reason why the Maraud-
ers are ranked sixth in the province. But
he’s not the only reason. Three seniors who
didn’t play last year – Trevor Severinski,
Matt Blackaby and 5-foot-5 guard Mitsu
Iwai – have made a large contribution es-
pecially recently as the rust gets knocked
off their games. Another Grade 12, Luke
Gillespie, has also gone from the bench to
prominence scoring 17 points and grabbing
seven rebounds against Walnut Grove.
“Nobody expected us to be as good as we
are. I knew we had it in us all along,” says
Williams. “It’s not done yet. We’ve still got
a long way to go.
“I feel like any of the top teams has a legiti-
mate chance to win the championship this
year.”
After that it’s off to Point Grey to, at first,
learn from three guards – Doug Plumb, Na-
than Yu and Melvyn Mayott – who will be in
their final year of eligibility next season
“I get a year to learn behind them and then
after that hopefully it will be my turn to step
up and be a starter,” says Williams. “They’ve
got an outstanding basketball program and
they’ve got a winning tradition and I definite-
ly wanted to be part of that.”
Goulet says with Williams being on pro-
vincial teams, UBC has been keeping an eye
on him as an ideal candidate to thrive in the
T-Birds guard-oriented system.
“He can score inside and out and comes
from a winning program,” said head coach
Kevin Hanson in a UBC press release. “He’ll
get the chance to get a year under his belt
but then we are expecting him to step up
and be an impact player for our program.
Williams has also talked to UBC football
coach Shawn Olson about possibly playing
the sport that is his first love. He’s played pig-
skin since he was seven. This past season he
was a wide receiver, safety and kick returner
for the Marauders football squad. But Wil-
liams admits it would be difficult trying to
juggle both sports along with his studies (he
plans to major in human kinetics).
If he pulled it off, though, it would be an-
other way to honour the brother, who made
him work so hard to earn every little point he
could get, whether it be on the court, the field
or the driveway.

Dave Funk of the Maple Ridge Box-

at the Diamond Belt Amateur Box-
ing Championships held at the Rich-
mond Sports Club on the weekend.
In his first match, Funk, 32, was
trailing his opponent, Abdul Hamid
of the Queensborough Boxing Club,
but then Hamid was disqualified
with about 10 seconds left in the
third and final round.
Hamid was committing fouls
throughout the bout before he re-
ceived the DQ, said Funk’s man-
ager, Alex Nelson.
Funk then went on to defeat Chris-
topher Cordova of the Morningstar
Boxing Club, 8-6 in the final.
“He was down by two points, but
in the last round he pulled it out,”
said Nelson. “We believe it’s the
first time Dave has won back-to-
back bouts since he started box-
ing.”
Cordova had advanced to the final
by taking out Maple Ridge’s Dylan
Bishop 11-7 Friday. Nelson said Bish-

been sick prior to the tournament.

Sports
I
t is my favorite week of our
West Coast winter: halfway
to summer.
While I do greatly enjoy our
fall salmon fishery, summer is
my favorite season. Long days,
warm, stable weather patterns,
and abundant evening insect
hatches, it makes my heart
sing. It is time to block out
time on the big 12-month wall
calendar and plan.
In most people’s busy world,
planning one,s fishing activates
is a must, if you don’t want to
run into conflict between what
you want to and what you need to do. If you are
a tournament angler, there are registrations and
accommodations that need to be taken care of well
ahead of time. If you are an instructor, venues and
advertising need to be negotiated with enough
lead time to fill your classes. If you are a writer,
leg work, or should we say water work, needs to be
done to have transcripts ready before deadlines. If
you are hoping for a fishing vacation at a popular
resort, a date and reservations need to be con-
firmed, before all the good spots are gone.
Then there is the preparation and maintenance
of vehicles, trailers, boats, motors, and other as-
sorted equipment before high season begins. All
this while the non-fishing public thinks you just
grab your rod with some lures and take off fishing.
It’s enough to make you want to take a holiday.
Well, as Red Green would say, “We are all in this
together. I’m pulling for ya.”
• There is a ladies only fishing club starting up
in Maple Ridge as of February, call 604-467-7118 for
details.
