Dam the money flow
The aging Ruskin Dam on the north side of the
Fraser River could be on the last chapter of its
considerable history, if Rich Coleman has his
way.
Last week, the province’s energy minister an-
nounced that he is exploring options to throttle
back B.C. Hydro’s rate increases, in part by look-
ing at decommissioning two old dams that need
major upgrades.
The 80-year-old Ruskin Dam is slated for an al-
most complete reconstruction to make it earth-
quake safe.
B.C. Hydro estimates the project would take six
years and cost as much as $850 million, to pre-
serve a dam and upgrade a powerhouse to sup-
ply about 33,000 homes.
In fact, it could cost a great deal more than
that, since mega-projects of this type often see
estimated dollar figures soar skyward.
Coleman said he has sent B.C. Hydro “back
to the drawing board” on Ruskin, after receiv-
ing assurances that it is technically possible to
lower the level of Hayward Lake over time and
decommission the dam.
Citizens who see all things political in a more
cynical fashion may suggest this is merely an
early election ploy.
Saving nearly a billion dollars on rebuilding an
antique dam that may not be needed at all is a
catchy campaign feature, to be sure.
Politically motivated or not, this kind of fiscal
responsibility has major appeal to heavily bur-
dened taxpayers.
This type of critical thinking is exactly what
most constituents want from Victoria.
Don’t spend money needlessly, especially on
major projects that can be postponed, restruc-
tured or shelved altogether.

by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s
staff reporter

The City of Pitt Mead-


ows wants to review its
election sign bylaw this
year to figure out a way
to prevent the placards
from popping up all
over public property.
The bylaw, though,
won’t be looked at until
after November’s civic
election.
“It’s a thing of pol-
lution for me,” Mayor
Don MacLean said at a
committee meeting last
week.
“I think we’d have a
better turnout [for elec-
tions] if people were
forced to go door to door
and sell themselves.”
Election signs are
a pet peeve for the
mayor, who won’t be
seeking re-election this
year. Now in his fourth
term in office, MacLean
posts few signs during
civic campaigns and
restricts them to pri-
vate property. He has
reused his mayor signs
for the past decade.
Coun. Gwen O’Connell
seconded MacLean mo-
tion’s that directed staff
to review the bylaw,
while councillors Bruce
Bell, Tracy Miyashita
and Deb Walters voted
against it.
O’Connell said in the
2008 election, John
Clancy, a Pitt Meadows
resident who vied for a
seat on council, earned
more than a 1,000 votes
without posting an elec-
tion sign.
Walters, who will be
seeking the mayor’s
chair in November, be-
lieves a “good old-fash-
ioned handshake and

time” works better
than a sign, but did not

statutory holidays). For even more savings, register today at quickpasstolling.ca. Bing, who will also
be seeking the mayor’s
chair, shared MacLean’s
concerns about visual
pollution, but thought it
was self-serving for the
city’s current council to
call for a review.
Committee’s rec-

voted on by council on

Remove any caps and bring them too, because they get recycled separately. There’s no refund on milk

Crossbow started during the 3-Day Novel
challenge

A
ward-winning Canadian author and humour-
ist Gordon Kirkland has taken his innate
sense of humour and combined it with a love
for a good mystery in his new book.
Crossbow, his seventh tome, is best described as a
marriage between Fargo and the darker passages of

which ran in Canada and U.S. from 1994 to 2007.

“Gomorrah on the high


prairie.”
Gordon Kirland,
writer

Set in a small Kansas town, Crossbow begins with


a series of deaths. Although the victims appear to
have been randomly chosen, the killer has, in fact,
decided that they must die for biblical transgressions
he believes they have committed. Among the first to
be slain is the county sheriff, leaving two deputies to
try to solve the case before the killer can achieve his
ultimate goal of wiping what he sees as “Gomorrah
on the high prairie” off the map, once and for all.
The deputies are far from seasoned police profes-
sionals. Dave Simmons, the senior of the two, is do-

niques. He’d like to bring geographic profiling to the
