Maple Ridge’s mayor likes the
idea of tacking another two cents
a litre on to the gasoline tax to
get the $1.4-billion Coquitlam Ev-
ergreen line underway, but also
says a final financial fix has to be
found.
“We need to work on longer-
term options,” Ernie Daykin said
Wednesday after TransLink’s
Mayors’ Council agreed on the
extra two cents, which would be
effective next April, as well as
other initiatives.
The tax increase will generate
about $40 million more in rev-
enue, which should cover most
of the annual borrowing cost of
TransLink’s $400-million share
for the project.
If the province agrees, Trans-
Link fundraising could include
longer term measures, such as a
vehicle levy or road and bridge
tolls.
“I think we
need to be
open enough
to consider a
range of op-
tions.”
Like his
c o l l e a g u e s
in Trans-
Link, Daykin
doesn’t like
raising prop-
erty taxes to
pay for transportation.
“If we can find long-term fund-
ing sources, then additional prop-
erty taxes won’t be necessary.”
But he would only support a
vehicle levy that would be gradu-
ated – with motorists in areas
such as Maple Ridge and Langley
with less transit, paying reduced
rates, while those with better
transit, pay a higher levy. The
levy should also be geared to the
fuel efficiency of a vehicle.
“A flat fee – no, forget it.”
Daykin says even residents
outside Metro Vancouver should
contribute.
Levy, more tolls could be
added, as well

Coun. Becker
running for
Pitt mayor
A third city councillor will be com-
peting for the mayor’s seat in Pitt
Meadows come November, a spot
that’s been held by Don MacLean
for the past 12 years.
John Becker, a three-term coun-
cillor, made the announcement
Thursday after “mulling” over the
decision since April, when MacLean
revealed he will not be seeking re-
election.
The owner of Becker & Company,
one of the region’s oldest and larg-
est law firms, he’s figured out how
he can cut back on work and dedi-
cate more time to city hall.
“It’s been 10 years I’ve been doing
this,” said Becker, who began his
civic service in 2001, when he was
selected to sit on the city’s agricul-
ture advisory committee – a posi-
tion he still holds.

I
t was two years after Jane
Muema and her husband
Chris came to Canada from
their native Kenya when their
daughter said the words that
made Jane’s heart sink.
“I think we don’t belong here,” Pendo
said, then four years old. “It’s time to go
home.”
The first two years in Canada had been
a difficult transition. They had no fam-
ily or friends here when they arrived in
2001. And Canadian culture was proving
difficult to adjust to.
Jane and Chris had both attended Seat-
tle Pacific University, where they earned
MBAs on scholarships. After returning
to Kenya, the young family decided to im-
migrate to Canada, based on the strong
public education system and the lack of
crime and corruption here.
Kenya is a scary place to raise a fam-
ily, Jane admits. Security was an ever-
present concern, with kidnappings and
robberies common in Nairobi.
“We had a very positive experience
in Seattle, and we knew Vancouver was
very similar,” Jane says.
The family eventually settled in Maple
Ridge and bought a home here. However,
the transition to life in Canada was more
difficult than they expected.
“When we moved to Maple Ridge, we
found ourselves feeling very isolated,”
Jane says. “Canadian culture is very dif-
ferent ... it was not as welcoming as Afri-
can culture.”
The problem wasn’t that Canadians
were necessarily unfriendly, she says, it
was just that everyone seemed to keep to
themselves.
“The Maple Ridge community is very
established,” she says.
Being one of the few black families in
town, the family felt racially isolated, as
well.
Pendo says she still feels like an out-
sider sometimes.
“I still feel like people stop and stare,”
she says. “It’s annoying because it hap-
pens so often.”
When Jane reached out to other fami-
lies of African descent in the area and
found they were experiencing a similar
culture shock, she decided she needed to
do something to help local children ad-
just to life in Canada.
With the financial support of the Bru-
nette Fellowship Church, Jane founded
the Hadiya Girls’ Group.
The group provides an opportunity for
girls of African descent to connect with
each other, and share the challenges of
adjusting to life in Canada.
“This is a place where the kids of Afri-
can descent could belong,” Jane says.
The group features about a dozen girls
from Rwanda, Uganda, Zimba-
bwe, Burundi, Liberia, Kenya, as
well as Haiti and Columbia.
In addition to learning about
Canadian culture, they group
also aims to educate non-Afri-
cans in the wider community
about African culture. The girls
are invited to bring a friend from
school to the meetings, so they
can learn about African culture,
too.
The group celebrated it’s one-
year anniversary last month,
and Jane says she hopes to expand the
program into Surrey and other areas.
“There is a growing need in the com-
munity,” she says. “The first four or five
years here, you’re really figuring out if
you are coming or going.”
Jane’s son initially had difficulties in
school because his teacher thought he
wasn’t participating in class discussions.
“He would just keep quiet, and the
teacher interpreted it as disinterest, but
he scored very well in tests,” she says.
In African schools, however, students
aren’t encouraged to speak up – they
must sit still and only speak when spo-
ken to.
“Many teachers don’t realize how much
change a child is going through,” says
Jane. “
This day, the group has assembled
at Jane’s home to make Father’s Day
cards out of construction paper
and pipe cleaners. Many of the
group’s activities are centered
on important events in Canadian
culture.
For last month’s Royal Wed-
ding, the girls dressed in tiaras
and pink and yellow gowns and
celebrated with a high tea. In
addition to learning about the
monarchy, Jane used the oppor-
tunity teach the girls about man-
ners and etiquette.
It’s been 10 years since Jane
and her family moved to Canada, and
Pendo says she’s happy to be living in
Canada now.
“It’s a joy,” she says. “I still miss Africa,
but not as much.”
As for Jane, she says she’s stopped
thinking like a Kenyan, and started think-
ing like a Canadian.
“What I really appreciate about [Cana-
da], is that it you can make a difference
here if you chose to identify something
you are passionate about,” she says.

The worries about
the Conservatives’ get-
tough-on-crime policies
is reaching to the pro-
vincial system, where
numbers are expected to
climb as result of more
people being thrown
into jail.
The effects of the re-
moval of the two-for-
one time-served credit
for inmates awaiting
trial is just starting to be
felt, Peter Coulson, pro-
vincial director of B.C.
Corrections told Maple
Ridge council Monday.
But that’s reducing the
numbers in remand.
Exactly how other
parts of the get-tough-on
crime laws that are ex-
pected from the majority
government will impact
the provincial system re-
mains to be seen.
“We really are at the
mercy of the feds on
this,” Coulson said.
“I know that for my
counterparts across the
country, it’s front and
centre in their minds,
because we know we’ll
feel an impact. We know
that. We know there will
be an impact, we just
don’t know how much.”
However, one part of
the expected get-tough-
on-crime bill, could be
elimination of condition-
al sentencing (house ar-
rest) for violent crimes,
which could add another
271 inmates to the pro-
vincial system.
It is already stretched.
“We are continuing to
face capacity issues in
the province,” Coulson
said.
The nine prisons in the
B.C. system, including
two in Maple Ridge, are
at 160 per cent capacity,
he added.
“We know we will be
experiencing pressure –
probably until 2020.”
The federal govern-
ment announced its in-
tent of getting tougher
on crime in its June 3
Throne Speech after
winning a majority in
the May election.
Coulson, along with
Fraser Regional Cor-
rectional Centre warden
Steve DiCastri and Alou-
ette Correctional Centre
for Women warden Lisa
Anderson touched on
several topics in their
report to council.
DiCastri will meet with
the Webster’s Corners
Neighbourhood Associa-
tion, which wants to re-
vive the telephone noti-
fication system any time
an inmate goes missing.
Currently, the insti-
tution doesn’t do that,
leaving police to decide
how to deal with any
walkaways.
That could involve
door-to-door notifica-
tion of a missing inmate
if there are concerns the
inmate is violent.
But that’s not the
case if a prisoner on a
work crew in the com-
munity decides to skip
out early.
“The vast majority of
them make arrange-
ments for them to pick
them up, so they get in
the car and they’re gone.
The last place they want
to be is in this area.”
So far, there have been
five walkaways from
open custody this year.
When inmates finish
their terms, they’re ei-
ther given a ride and bus
fare to the Haney bus
exchange or Greyhound
station, so they have a
way of getting home.
The new $42.7-million
secure wing that opens
at ACCW next year will
allow the transfer of fe-
male inmates from the
Surrey Pre Trial Cen-
tre, freeing up about 90
beds.
The design allows
more efficient move-
ment and better super-
vision of inmates and
is attracting attention
from across the country.
Representatives from
every provincial and ter-
ritorial prison system
have visited the build-
ing, Coulson said.
“It’s really state-of-
the-art correctional ar-
chitecture that all the
provinces are coming to
see.”

TENSION
How do I begin, where do I start? It’s all
about the silent killer, or at least that’s the
way it begins, slowly with subtlety, always
lurking in the shadows. Then one day you hear
something, could it be a sign of something to
come? All seems well, so why worry? Right?
Then again, something happens on the way
to work. But once again you ignore it, as it will
go away. But this time it lingers and now you’re
aware, not yet convinced that something is
going on that may require attention, but it’s
not your imagination.
So for the next few days you drive your car
‘lighter’, maybe even baby it a little and then
it happens. You step on the gas pedal to pass
someone, you start it up after it’s been parked
over night, or you turn on the A/C while driving
down the road and all Hell breaks loose. The
first thing you notice is the ear piercing squeal
which seems to get worse the faster you drive,
and then, somehow, mysteriously goes away.
It is very likely that YOU just lost the tension
in your serpentine belt tensioner and/or the
bearing in the idler pulley is ready to give
up the ghost. Either way you had better
get it in for a check-up to determine what’s
wrong and what it’s going to take to repair.
Procrastinating further at this juncture will just
multiply the problem and the amount of the
repair bill.
Most cars have a single serpentine belt (4-6
ribs) that runs everything. One belt does all of
it, so it’s not good to ignore its maintenance.
To accomplish this, one belt driving all under
hood pulleys, vehicle engineers’ added a
spring loaded-self adjusting serpentine drive
belt tensioner.
It is for the most part a very simple device.
However, where it is bolted to the front of
your engine, can be very labour intensive to
remove and replace.
If ignored and allowed to fail, this tensioner
can reek no end of havoc under your vehicle’s
hood. When you lose tension on this belt it no
longer does its job. You’ll start to notice that
your electrical system seems weak, especially
at night or during a rainstorm. Reason being
is you're running directly off your battery as
the alternator, the device that recharges your
battery, is no longer being driven by the belt.
This same belt operates your water pump,
power steering and air conditioning on most
vehicles. The loss of steering assistance or your
engine overheating and doing costly engine
damage is a very real possibility.
Belt tensioner failure is a very common
problem we see almost daily at our shop, to the
point that we are recommending serpentine
tensioner replacement as a maintenance item.
The idea being, to change it before it fails, so
you don’t encounter the loss of your vehicle
and the expense of a tow and subsequent
repairs. If you’re not sure, give us a call!

For instance, Abbots-
ford residents drive on
Metro Vancouver roads
and make up 40 per cent
of the riders boarding
the West Coast Express
in Mission, while the City
Abbotsford pays nothing
for the service. Maybe
a penny a litre could be
added to gasoline in that
city.
“I think we need to be
open enough to consider
a range of options.”
Transportation Minis-
ter Blair Lekstrom has
said he’ll introduce the
legislation in the fall to
add the extra two cents
on to the 15 cents a litre
of gasoline that Trans-
Link already charges,
while the other funding
sources will be discussed
over the next several
months.
If more sources of cash
are found, TransLink can
start on other items on its
to-do list, like RapidBus,
SeaBus, SkyTrain station
and road improvements.
But Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows are not on
that list.
However, Daykin point-
ed out that new funding
will allow the $900 mil-
lion earmarked for the
major road network to
remain, which will help
fund projects in Maple
Ridge.
Meanwhile, building
the Evergreen line, “gets
options to the car closer
to Maple Ridge.”
Pitt Meadows Mayor
Don MacLean thinks
the gas tax should just
be increased by 3.5 cents
a litre, bringing it 18.5
cents a litre.
That would solve all
of TranLink’s financial
problems, he said.
“I think the gasoline
tax is the closest to de-
mand management
that there is,” MacLean
added.
“If you don’t use your
vehicle much, you don’t
pay as much gas tax.
If you take transit or a
have a fuel-efficient car,
you reduce your gaso-
line tax.
“Either that, or start
messing with the vehicle
levy.”
But he pointed out that
the transportation min-
istry says increasing the
tax to that amount by
next spring would be too
much of an increase, too
soon.
MacLean said there’s a
mindset that transporta-
tion services ideally, just
have to break even.
“In the rest of the
world, nothing happens
unless you make a mod-
est profit.”
Increase gas tax by 3.5 cents: MacLean
The addition of the
secure wing means
health care at ACCW
will now be offered on
a 24-hour rather than
16-hour basis, council
heard.
DiCastri said there
are currently 500 in-
mates at Fraser Re-
gional. The prison has
304 cells, including
temporary structures
built next the main
building, and each cell
can accommodate two
inmates.
“Staff assaults are
minimal at Fraser. It
does happen in the
environment we’re in,
but all in all, things are
going quite well.”
The prison guard
union continues to
blame overcrowding
for contributing to
many of the problems
at FRCC, including a
steady availability of
illegal drugs, an in-
crease in assault on
corrections officers
and “walk-aways” from
work crews.
Only 10 of the Tamil
refugee claimants who
arrived by boat last
year remain at the jail.

THE NEWS/opinion
Not ignorance, but
ignorance of igno-
rance, is the death of
knowledge.
– Alfred North
Whitehead.

A
s this school
year wrapped
up, a teacher
I know set two tasks
on the top of her
do list: her Grade 2
classroom party, and
a strike vote.
Year-end farewells
are important. There are tearful partings,
as in, ‘Good-bye, Mr. Chips.’ But parties are
time bandits, with so many other things
to do – organize student files, attend next
term placement meetings.
This year, Mrs. X got a pleasant surprise
– a parent offered to look after this one.
Mom’s daughter had “bloomed” the year
before thanks to Mrs. X’s talent for zero-
ing in on her individual learning needs,
encouraging kids for every effort while
managing behavior and modeling fair play.
To do these things, Mrs. X had developed
her own instructional approach over the
years. She has “professional autonomy,”
a hard-fought right of teachers in B.C. to
choose what materials and strategies they
use to develop curriculum goals.
It’s smart for an employer to respect the
personal autonomy of professionals.
Studies show teachers with it will take
on accountability for learning; those de-
nied it will balk.
A fellow named George Washington
actually told the British this in 1775, at the
height of their colonial ignorance:
“The people must be led,” he told King
George. “They won’t be drove.”
But, autonomy alone will not close the
gap between kids who reach grade level
and the growing numbers who struggle
because books aren’t read at home, pov-
erty limits experiential opportunities, or
English isn’t the first language. We need
libraries, ESL classes.
The press will focus on the simple issue
of salaries in the current strike, but it’s
really about teacher support, the backbone
of our schools.
When Mrs. X started out, there were
learning assistance centers for kids who
just needed a little remediation in reading
or math. They didn’t need a designation to
qualify for that.
When their numbers grew, “moder-
ate learning disability” was invented to
reduce demand on service.
The learning disability group has grown
with our cultural mosaic, but it’s not
entitled to special help now.
Most of the learning assistance centres
are gone too, victims of school board and
ministry ignorance in the ’90s.
In 2005, parents of one boy who thrived
in his LA centre won a Human Rights
complaint against the North Vancouver
School District for dismantling it. The min-
istry, co-defendant in that case, appealed
the ruling (Moore v. B.C., and S.D. 44). So
much for government “for the people.”
Today, Mrs. X does what she can to help
her students. It frustrates her that the
government still doesn’t get it. It has an
agenda for standardized testing now – get
more students on winner’s side of a bell
curve; scapegoat teachers if it doesn’t
happen.
The plan would deaden the love of learn-
ing and teaching at the same time. If Mrs.
X cracked the standardized whip, she’d
be like Weena, one of the mind-controlled
Eloi in the H.G.Wells novel The Time
Machine.
Brainwashing is Step 1 in achieving a
fascist society. We’re constantly told the
ministry plan will improve education.
That’s bunk.
Step 2 is crushing dissent. The employer
wants to remove all evaluation, discipline,
and dismissal language for teachers,
eliminate seniority, (intimidate Mrs. X and
her ilk), fire teachers on a single evalua-
tion (teach to the test, or else), and remove
any limits on special needs students in a
classroom.
In 2002, the government, and then-minis-
ter Christy Clark, imposed bills 27 and 28,
which removed class size and composition
from the teacher’s contract.
The court returned these bargaining
rights on April 13, but in the 10 years
leading to this decision, librarians became
‘information’ media specialists, counsel-
ing and special education support shifted
from working with kids to administering
ministry mandated tests to determine
which ones “qualify” for assistance under
a restrictive designation process.
Services essential for blooming were
pruned to the stump.
It’s time to speak up for education

Q
uestion
of the
week:
Do you support keeping the HST?
Yes: 18% – No: 82% (90 votes)
This week’s question:
Is increasing the provincial gas tax by two cents a
litre the best way to fund transit expansion?
@ Online poll: cast your vote at www.mapleridgenews.com, or e-mail your vote and comments to editor@mapleridgenews.com
The carbon tax was the first tax increase.
Then the provincial government introduced the
HST.
And on Canada Day, the carbon tax marked its
first anniversary with a jump at the pump, another
1.11 cents a litre.
Now, Metro Vancouver mayors, with the provin-
cial government’s blessing, want to increase the
gas tax by two cents a litre.
As if motorists in the region don’t pay enough
for gas already – among the highest rates in North
American – the tax increase will only help pay for
a portion of the transit improvements sought, in-
cluding the long-awaited Evergreen SkyTrain line
to Coquitlam, an 11-kilometre route with a current
price tag of $ 1.4 billion.
The $400 transit plan also outlines upgrades to
buses and SeaBuses, roads and cycling lanes.
The extra two cents on gas will raise about $40
million a year, half the amount needed annually to
fund the plan.
So mayors also want to introduce a small vehi-
cle levy ($10 to $40 a year) and a property tax in-
crease.
When does the bleeding stop?
Road tolls may not be that far away.
No doubt Metro Vancouver needs to get with the
times, to expand transit and try to eliminate con-
gestion and reduce pollution.
The money has to come from somewhere, and the
shift, as we’ve seen with tolls on the Golden Ears
Bridge and the HST, is to tax consumption. The gas
tax does that.
But with salaries lagging behind inflation, and in-
flated housing prices that rival New York, London
and San Francisco, not to mention an average resi-
dential property tax hike here in Maple Ridge each
year of five per cent – people just don’t have that
much more to give.
One day, governments will have to figure out
a way to cut costs, spend less, or voters will tell
them.
For now, we need these transit improvements,
to get with the 21st Century, to stop just building
roads. So increasing taxes is a necessary evil.
But it must be done in an equitable way, like tolls
on all bridges, maybe even roads; all motorists must
pay, not just those who drive the most, because they
don’t yet have the benefit of taking SkyTrain.

EDITOR THE NEWS:
Re: Don’t be fooled by HST propagan-
da, rhetoric (Letters, July 1).
That the HST was badly implemented
has been discussed and agreed on left,
right and center.
However, that is now history, and if we
still let our anger over that influence our
decision making instead of researching
all the facts, we and our children will
live to regret it.
But don’t flatter yourself, Wayne Clark,
by thinking that you can read my mind.
I readily admit that it is, as you say,
“all in my head,” but that is because I
have a brain in there that understands
the advantage and long-term benefits of
the one-tax HST system as opposed to
the cumbersome and costly two-tax PST
and GST system we used to have.
Furthermore, you are totally wrong
in suggesting that I am being swayed by
the propaganda and rhetoric, as you call
it. I have been in favour of the HST from
the beginning. In fact, long before the
HST actually came into effect, I emailed
the provincial government, telling them
I agreed with it, but suggested making
the new tax an even 10 per cent across
the board with a minimum of excep-
tions.
Next comes your statement that you
will still be paying $1,000 HST on your
registered therapeutic massage, with
the inference that you did so this year,
as well.
Doing the math on that, it means that
you are spending a staggering $8333.33
per year on this therapy. That is just
too hard to believe. It gives the impres-
sion that you are fudging your figures,
or else your’s must be an extreme case
of fibromyalgia to warrant an average
of two treatments per week, 52 weeks of
the year.
Also, to suggest that “many people will
be put in the street as their ability to bor-
row money runs out,” is absurd. Why
borrow? Better to curtail our spending
and look after our needs instead of our
wants.
By the way, to suggest that I should of-
fer to help Corisa Bell is laughable. You
ought to know that my political outlook
is as diametrically opposed to hers as it
is to yours.

B.C. Liberals love Wall Street
EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Tax my car, not my income (B.C.
Views, June 15).
Tom Fletcher can nitpick all he wants
about the proper identification of the
government’s July 2010 tax increase on
private vehicle sales.
As an alternative, maybe his beloved
government should have considered
rescinding the dealer tax on used ve-
hicles.
Most people buy used cars and other
used products because they can’t afford
to buy new.
In reality, this is just another tax that
hits those who can least afford it.
After slogging through all the statis-
tics, graphs, and pie-charts concerning
the HST, one thing struck me: the prov-
ince raises 14 per cent of its money from
the HST, 14 per cent from personal in-
come taxes, and only four per cent from
corporate income taxes.
The province spends 42 per cent of its
revenues on health and 27 per cent on
education.
Corporations benefit greatly from an
educated and healthy workforce. It re-
duces their training costs, and unlike
companies in the U.S., they don’t have to
shell out huge amounts for heath insur-
ance. That in itself provides a big cost
advantage for B.C. companies.
So why aren’t these companies paying
their fair share?
Over the years, our government has
increasingly catered to the values of
Wall Street and Madison Avenue. You
know – those buzzing little stick people
on TV. Now, if only it could rediscover
Main Street.

Am I wrong
EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Do your homework on HST (The
News, June 14).
Am I wrong in assuming that voting
‘No’ on the HST and keeping it will give
Ottawa financial power to do as it wishes
in giving provinces whatever transfer
payments it pleases in the future?
No, I am not.
I think back, for example, on a part of
the Trudeau era, when not one Liberal
was elected from B.C., Alberta, or Sas-
katchewan and only two from Manitoba.
Given this scenario happening again
with a government that is not as reason-
able towards the west as the present one,
can we in B.C. really consider the HST as
being in our favor?
Would transfer payments be fair?
I think not.
BARRY BENTLEY
MAPLE RIDGE
EDITOR, THE NEWS:
I wanted to address an in-
cident on the dikes in Pitt
Meadows and Maple Ridge
that I experienced the other
night.
It was a beautiful evening
for a walk with my friend
and her eight-month-old
golden retriever and my six-
month-old golden retriever.
The rules of the dike are
now all dogs have to on
leash, except designated
areas, and bikers ride at a
speed that’s appropriate to
share the dike.
I make a decision to let
my puppy run up to my
friend and her dog while I
got organized and locked
up the vehicle. She was not
quite up on the dike, while
a biker rides by full speed
ahead. My puppy, in an in-
stant, gives chase.
The biker didn’t ac-
knowledge the situation
with a courtesy stop so we
could get the puppy back
on leash, but instead sped
up and took the puppy on
a chase for at least a half
mile, heading towards Har-
ris Road.
I am unable to run and my
friend attempted to run and
catch up, screaming the
puppy’s name and calling
to the biker to stop.
Luckily, the puppy
stopped when it came upon
another group of people
with dogs, so he was dis-
tracted and stopped chas-
ing the bike.
The point I want to make
is, there are situations
where all users on the dikes
fall short of the rules.
The argument the biker
would have, I’m sure, is
keep your dog on a leash.
But the cyclist was speed-
ing. And, seeing the puppy,
why not stop, for safety’s
sake?
How are we all going to
get along on this dike?
Frankly, the municipal at-
tempt to create these ridic-
ulous dog parks and leave
the dikes to the egomania-
cal bikers and joggers is
very unbalanced and I say
why not have two sides of
the dikes be utilized, so we
all can use it and have a
choice for the owners and
dogs and a sense of safety.
It is dumb the way it is
because, as you can see,
there are two sides to this
story.

Not happy on Thornhill
From: Darlene R Strain, posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Re: User fees for Thornhill water? (The News, July 6).
What a JOKE! We MUST haul water to drink, flush, wash etc. during
extreme conditions, but NEVER have we had to endure such nasty
brown water from our natural source or run out of water so early as
we have this year since the clearing on Thornhill. NOW you say we
have to be charged for our water that we must HAUL to our home on
our own due to our water source being contaminated and cut into by
construction? A pure and simple joke this must be! NOT happy on the
North Thornhill.
Fair question
From: AlbionSunDog, posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Re: User fees for Thornhill water? (The News, July 6).
This is an honest question: Do you pay the standard $413.65 with your
taxes for water? If you don’t, it would seem fair to be charged based on
usage. Conversely, if you do, then I totally agree.
Enforcement great, but more needed
From: John McKenzie, posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Re: Resident keeping eye on sex trade (The News, July 6).
With regards to the area of North [Avenue] and Fraser [Street], where
drug dealing/prostitution persists, more enforcement is needed! Sgt.
Daryl Creighton and his street enforcement team are doing a great job,
but need to focus more in this area.
Applause
From: Ravenhope, posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Re: Resident keeping eye on sex trade (The News, July 6).
Good for Mr. Dugger! I applaud him. We have to protect our children
from this sort of behavior. It promotes child sexual abuse.
The party in Mrs. X’s room? The mom showed the
kids how to make spaghetti and roll meatballs, wrap
cutlery in a paper napkin, set a table with flowers,
serve desert – ice-cream topped with chocolate wafers
in dishes shaped like fruit.
A lot of kids had never been to a nice restaurant.
They were thrilled.
Task two: Mrs. X voted to strike with 90 per cent of
her colleagues. I remember a similar vote in Mission,
another town along the Fraser, in the ’80s. The issues?
Class size, composition, autonomy, classroom support.
Shirley, a librarian begged her school board to “ad-
dress the problems of class size and mainstreaming,
and help our teachers do the task they are expected to
do – deliver quality education.”
That plea fell on deaf ears. School boards – with a few
exceptions like Vancouver, recently – don’t dare oppose
the ministry. They roll over.
Instead of getting rid of the school band here, the
Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows board should have been
pounding drums in the street.
It’s time for more of the general public to speak up
for the education system too, before we lose everything
it stands for – equal opportunity for all.
The growing number of us who are willingly duped
and harvested by right wing, elitist government – as
the Eloi were by the cannibalistic Morlocks – is evident
in HST polls where ‘yes’ to rescind should be 90 per-
cent.
Ignorance of ignorance is the death of knowledge.

Correct the issue, mayor
From: MsSparks, posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Re: ‘Pitt councillors were just grandstanding’(Letters, July 6).
People make mistakes, I get that. Though the comparison to the dentist is laughable
at best. They are not one and the same; not all councillors will be “covered”by only
that dentist. You can’t compare private and public.
I appreciate that the winning insurance company is from Pitt Meadows, and keeping
it local is obviously favorable. However we also have to remember that a call for bids is
to find the best coverage at the best price – saving you, the citizens of the city, money,
while providing optimum coverage.
I don’t know the budget and I don’t know the details of the bids, though we have
to remember that we are responsible for ensuring that our job descriptions are filled
appropriately.
In a position such as Mayor Don MacLean’s, that requires understanding and studying,
that’s why he gets the big bucks, paid for by you. Yes, I can accept that mistakes hap-
pen, but let’s also understand that we have to be responsible for our actions, even if
unintentional, accidental, or through lack of education. And when we make a mistake,
it would be in the best interest of those involved to try to correct the issue. Oddly
enough, this is what we do with our children – we try to teach them to take responsi-
bility for their actions by thinking things through, correcting errors. Seems to me that
this crucial step in upbringing should be taken into consideration here.

HST from the beginning.”

It’s not perfect, but Maple
Ridge staff keep trying to find
ways to improve 224th Street
north of Dewdney Trunk Road,
an area where many seniors
live.
But it’s going to be a while be-
fore a full pedestrian-controlled
signal is installed anywhere
on the stretch from Dewdney
Trunk Road to 124th Avenue.
There’s simply not the vol-
ume of vehicles or pedestrians
to warrant installing that, says
District of Maple Ridge traffic
technologist Michael Eng.
Every year, the district moni-
tors 30 locations to see if they
need such improvement, in-
cluding 224th Street, and this
year again they found it didn’t
meet the criteria.
The street was the site of
pedestrian-vehicle collision
in June, when the driver of a
pickup truck hit an 88-year-old
woman in a crosswalk.
Eng said district staff meet
residents from the seniors cen-
tre on an ongoing basis to re-
view possible improvements.
“We’ve had a lot of discussion
with the people in that area.
“I think we’ve listened. I think
we’ve accommodated some
these requests.”
Recently, the marked cross-
walk at 121st Avenue was
moved from the north to south
side to improve visibility. As
well, an overhead sign with
direct downward lighting was
installed. With similar inter-
sections at Brown Avenue and
122nd Avenue, there are now
three such crosswalks.
“Now, all three crosswalks in
the region have the same fea-
tures,” Eng said.
As well, there’s a speed read-
er board that lights up when
southbound motorists go to
fast. That was put on the road
to remind motorists exiting
Abernethy Way to slow down
as they approach downtown
Maple Ridge.
Eng pointed out the road was
reduced from four to two lanes
several years ago, as well bike
lanes were added.
“Regardless of what we do,
there’s some level of danger,”
Eng added.
One device that won’t be used
on the street is the pedestrian-
activated flashing amber cross-
ing signal. That’s too confusing
to motorists and pedestrians
alike who don’t know if they
should stay or go.
Eng said most drivers in Ma-
ple Ridge, “are pretty respect-
ful of cross walks.”
He said an ideal way to cross
a street is to be attentive, stick
out your hand to show you want
to cross and make eye contact
with the motorist to be sure he
or she is hitting the brake.
All intersections, whether
they have painted lines on them
or not, are crosswalks.
No crossing signal coming for 224th St.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Blaine Hallman, seeking ref-
uge from the sudden summer
heat, took his kids and his dog to
Davidson’s Pool on Wednesday
too cool off, as many have done
in Maple Ridge for close to a cen-
tury.
But rather than relax on the
sandy banks of South Alouette
River, he found himself wres-
tling with two pit bulls, trying to
save his dog’s life.
Bailey, a 20-month-old Chesa-
peake Bay Retriever cross, was
paddling out of the river when
two pit bulls pounced on her.
One dragged Bailey to the
shore by her neck, as Hallman
tried to pry the dog off. It sank
its teeth into the side of her
head, splitting her ear.
When Hallman got one dog off,
the second attacked. He punched
the second pit bull in the face,
then grabbed the first in a choke
hold. He was bitten on his hand
and face in the struggle.
Initially muzzled, the pit
bulls were quickly taken home
by their owners – a muscular
man with brown hair and a tall
blonde woman – after Hallman
rushed bleeding Bailey to a vet-
erinarian.
He’s now saddled with a bill for
$270.
The Maple Ridge SPCA is look-
ing for the owners of the pit bulls
and asks anyone who can iden-
tify the dogs to call 604-463-9511
or RCMP at 604-463-6251. The pit
bull that did the most damaged
to Bailey was black and called
Diesel. The second pit bull was
tan-coloured. The couple was
seen with another man, who had
a dog called Pepper.

Please return pups
An emaciated lab-cross and her litter
of pups were taken into the care of the
Maple Ridge SPCA on Saturday after
concerned campers at Lake Errock camp-
ground in Mission spotted the dog with a
heavy chain around its neck.
The frail female dog, named Ruby, was
also sufering from open sores and had
numerous parasites.
Campers notifed the SPCA after recover-
ing the wandering dog and removing a
13-pound chain from around her neck.
Upon further investigation, the dog was
tracked to a nearby residence, where it
was discovered that she had given birth
to a litter of seven puppies, six weeks old.
Some had been given away at the
campground.
Marcie Moriarty, B.C. SPCA, is urging
whoever has the puppies to bring them
to the Abbotsford shelter, where there
mother is now being cared for.

ave Rempel
thought it was a
goner, but much
to his chagrin, the cat
came back
Just like the epony-
mous star of the nursery
rhyme made famous by
Fred Penner, the wild
bobcat that had been ter-
rorizing Rempel’s east
Maple Ridge bird sanc-
tuary recently returned
after being relocated by
conservation officers in
late April.
Rempel raises ducks,
geese, pheasants, pea-
cocks, swans, emus, pi-
geons, and chickens on
his Maple Ridge hobby
farm. So far he estimates
the bobcat has killed
more than $3,000 worth
of birds, including some
Australian black swans.
“This has never hap-
pened in 25-plus years,”
he said. “Even the [con-
servation officer] said
he had only seen two
bobcats in his lifetime.”
Rempel, who is also
a trustee on the Maple
Ridge-Pitt Meadows
Board of Education,
trapped the bobcat back
in April after it began to
feast on his birds.
However, after a rash
of bird kills in the past
week, he’s concerned the
bobcat has made its way
back to the property.
“I think it may have
been released too close
by,” Rempel said.
He has put the trap out
again in three or four
different locations, but
the bobcat isn’t falling
for it.
“I wonder if it’s too
smart for traps now,” he
said.
Rempel’s property
contains 24 small ponds
with fencing around
them, housing more
than 150 migratory and
non-migratory birds.
He has had to move
many of his birds into
one of the five secure
aviaries for protection.
Rempel said he also
plans to electrify his ex-
terior fencing.
“It’s a lot of work to
fortify the property,”
Rempel said. “I have no
idea what else to do.”
Conservation officer
Cody Ambrose released
the bobcat in the Stave
Lake area, about 30
km from where it was
caught.
However, Ambrose
says it’s unlikely the
bobcat currently wreak-
ing havoc on Rempel’s
property is the same one
trapped in April.
“[The Stave Lake area]
has an adequate food
source of small mam-
mals and birds,” he said.
Bobcats live in warmer
regions with a range that
stretches over much of
the U.S., parts of Canada
and south into central
Mexico. Their diet in-
cludes mice, fish, snakes,
birds, carrion and small
ungulates such as deer.
Like its cousin, the lynx,
the bobcat is also a ma-
jor predator of rabbit
and hare.
“Bobcats aren’t a pub-
lic safety problem and
don’t pose a significant
danger to the public,”
said Ambrose. “But like
any wild animal, give
them space and leave
them be.”
If confronted by a bob-
cat, Ambrose said to
keep as much distance
between you and the
bobcat, back away slow-
ly and don’t run. When
safe to do so, make as
much noise as possible
to scare the it away.
People with livestock
can avoid problems by
properly installing elec-
tric fences and manag-
ing attractants.

People who use Handy-
DART in Maple Ridge
are hoping a petition
will resolve complaints
they’ve been voicing for
the past year.
Spearheaded by par-
ents with special needs
children who use the
door-to-door service al-
most daily, the petition
says HandyDART has
become an “appalling”
service in Maple Ridge.
Elizabeth Saparama-
du’s son Kithsen uses
HandyDART to get to his
job at Greenwood Cre-
ations, a wood workshop
operated by the Ridge
Meadows Association
for Community Living.
Work begins at 8:30
a.m., but Saparamadu
says Kit is often stuck
on the bus for an hour.
One Tuesday, an eight-
kilometre trip from his
house to his job on Maple
Crescent took an hour
and a half.
Kit’s condition affects
his circulation, causing
his legs to fall asleep,
so when the bus finally
reaches its destination
and Kit tries to get up, he
falls over.
Saparamadu said she
has called HandyDART’s
customer service line re-
peatedly, but little has
been done to change
things.
Others complain that
HandyDART has failed
to pick up their children
on several occasions,
has dropped them off
at destinations and left
them unattended despite
notes on file, inform-
ing drivers that the cli-
ent should never be left
alone. More claim rides
have been cancelled
without the clients being
informed.
Evelyn Wason’s son
David, who has Down’s
Syndrome and can’t
speak, has been left
unattended after being
dropped off by Handy-
DART.
She blames the deal
TransLink signed with
HandyDART in 2008
for causing much of the
problems.
The $113-million, three-
year deal with MVT Ca-
nadian Bus Inc. replaced
an old patchwork system
in which seven different
service providers oper-
ated in eight different
zones.
The new deal created
a three-zone system and
promised to be more
seamless, with fewer
transfers for clients.
Wason said it now
takes up to an hour to
get through to the cus-
tomer service line.
“When it was local, we
could get through and
find out where the bus
was,” she added.
Cathy Ballard, the cus-
tomer service manager
for HandyDART, en-
couraged riders to call
in their concerns.
From January to July
6, HandyDART provided
26,095 rides in Maple
Ridge and fielded 33
complaints.
“We provide the best
service that we can
possibly provide with
the limitations that we
have,” said Ballard.
She suggested clients
be more specific about
the changes they want
to see and where the
service is lagging.
“I’d like to find out
where and how I can
help them. Certainly,
that’s what we are here
for.”
Petition to improve HandyDART service
Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
(From left) David Moore, fKithsen Saparamadu and his
mother Elizabeth Saparamadu are upset with HandyDart.

To sign the petition, copies are available at the Ridge Meadows
Seniors’ Centre, 12150 – 224th Street and the Ridge Meadows

Six more buildings will
soon be going up in the
Golden Ears Business
Park in Pitt Meadows.
On Tuesday, city coun-
cil approved a develop-
ment permit for the
project, which will also
involve landscaping an
undeveloped portion of
the Harris Road site.
The buildings will
range from 26,693 square
feet to 124,273 square
feet and house 120 units,
which will vary from
1,750 square feet to 4,900
square feet.
Trees will be planted
to block the view of the
buildings from the dike.
Onni will also install
picnic tables and bench-
es at the south end of one
of the buildings.
In all, Onni owns 92
acres of land at the south
end of Harris Road, ca-
pable supporting more
than 1.5 million square
feet of light industrial
space, making it the sec-
ond largest development
of its kind in B.C.
Arena loan
The City of Pitt Mead-
ows has the green light
to borrow $4.3 million to
complete upgrades to its
hockey arena.
Only eight people ob-
jected to the loan during
an alternative approval
process.
Instead of a referen-
dum, the process re-
quires at least 10 per
cent of eligible voters
– 1,152 of 11,517 – in Pitt
Meadows to oppose the
borrowing bylaw for it to
be defeated.
The $4.3 million is in
addition to the $7.15 mil-
lion borrowed in 2010 by
the city to construct the
South Bonson Commu-
nity Centre and pay for
the first phase of arena
upgrades.
The arena upgrade will
be nearly complete by
the end of this year.
Panhandle back
A property twice re-
jected for subdivision
by Pitt Meadows council
will be going to another
public hearing before
a decision is made on
whether the lot should
be split.
The owners of 11631
Bonson Road have filed
an application to re-
zone the 1,703-square-
metre property from
suburban residential
to one-family dwelling,
splitting it in two via a
“panhandle.”
The application
passed two readings and
reached a public hear-
ing in June, when coun-
cil heard criticism from
neighbours, including
several who spoke out
when the same property
was pitched for rezon-
ing in 2005 and 2006.
A report by city
staff, however, found
the property met the
requirements of Pitt
Meadows “infill policy,”
which seeks to increase
density in urban areas.
Instead of moving the
application forward,
council asked city staff
to address neighbour-
hood concerns about
privacy.
Staff have now rec-
ommend a covenant be
place on the property
that restricts the kitch-
en and living area to
the first floor, regulates
where the new house is
built and requires land-
scaping to provide ad-
ditional screening and
privacy.
A public hearing will
be held July 19.

“Frankly, I think I’ve
squeezed as much juice
out of the orange in the
councillor’s position as I
can get. In politics, tim-
ing is everything and I
think now is the time.”
Couns. Doug Bing and
Deb Walters will also be
vying for the mayor’s
seat in November and
announced their inten-
tions a few days after
MacLean divulged he’d
be leaving civic politics
after 21 years.
Both two-term council-
lors, Bing drew the most
votes in the 2005 civic
election with 1,972, while
Walters was a close sec-
ond with 1,937. Becker
pulled in 1,693 votes.
Three councillors
fighting for the same
seat means there will be
space for two new faces
on city council.
The prospects of a pair
of green councillors, who
may have different views
from the current crop,
doesn’t bother Becker.
If elected, he intends to
dedicate the fifth Tues-
day of every month to
professional develop-
ment.
“I will be making sure
they understand the
need for the city to move
forward in a collegial
fashion. Not the huskies
all running in different
directions. If one of the
huskies wants to run off
sideways, it’s going to
drag down the others,”
he explained.
“We can disagree with
each other, which is a
good thing, but agree
that we have to take a
certain course of ac-
tion.”
Becker cites his 30
years of business expe-
rience and his ability to
bring council together as
skills that will make him
a good mayor.
Both Bing and Walters
welcomed Becker’s an-
nouncement and were
not surprised by it.
“It is going to leave a
huge hole on council,”
said Walters.
“I hope that John has
thought it through. He’s
had little time to invest
in council. So I hope he
re-evaluates and realizes
the commitment he’s go-
ing to have to make to be
mayor.”
“I welcome Coun. Beck-
er’s decision to throw
his hat into the ring as I
think he is an outstand-
ing individual,” said
Bing, a local dentist.
“Healthy competi-
tion is a good thing and
shows that democracy
is alive and well in Pitt
Meadows. The City of
Pitt Meadows will be
the ultimate winner in
November as the public
now has three excellent
candidates to choose
from.”
MacLean is not pre-
pared to endorse any
of the candidates, right
now.
But he knows what’s
he’s looking for in the
next mayor: somebody
who is going to be an av-
erage citizen in the com-
munity, someone who
has a long-term vision,
the ability to see the big
picture, leave the small
stuff to staff, and has
good sense of business.
“I think it’s great that
we have three experi-
enced members of coun-
cil willing to take over the
job,” MacLean added.
“As much as everybody
might think the outgo-
ing mayor’s endorse-
ment is worth millions,
I wouldn’t buy into that.
The public are going to
make the decision and
hopefully they will look
very closely at the can-
didates and make their
decision based on what’s
best for the community.”
Mayor from front
MacLean won’t endorse anyone, yet

The Harris Road out-
door pool has opened
its doors again for the
summer after repairs
were recently com-
pleted stop water from
leaking.
Thirty-five people
turned out on Canada
Day to mark the annual
opening of the 66-year-
old pool.
Repairs took place
over the winter and
were completed this
past April. Pool decks
were excavated, water
pipes were replaced
and concrete blocks
and the pool tank were
sealed.
Last year, the pool
was leaking 25,000
litres of water a day,
which made it difficult
to maintain a moderate
water temperature.
“We are quite pleased
with the fix,” said Kelly
Swift, general manager
or parks and recre-
ation.
“When you’re pull-
ing apart something
old, you might be in
for some surprises. But
they were minimal.”
Around 4,500 people
use the pool during a
typical season, depend-
ing on weather, Swift
added. “Hopefully,
we’re in for a lot of
sun.”
The Harris Road Pool
is open Monday to Sun-
day, 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., in-
cluding statutory holi-
days.
• Swimming lessons
began July 4 and will
continue until the end
of August. Spaces are
still available. For more
information or to regis-
ter, go to www.recreg4u.

Working together
makes it easier to get
through tough times,
and a Seattle author
will be in Maple Ridge
on Monday to explain
how to do that.
Jim Diers, author
Neighbor Power: Build-
ing Community the
Seattle Way, speaks in
Maple Ridge council
chambers from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m.
Diers was in town to
give a presentation to
Maple Ridge staff, but
the district also wanted
the general public to
hear what he had to
say, so the meeting is
open to everyone, indi-
viduals and community
groups.
According to Diers:
“Neighbors can gener-
ate tremendous power
when they come togeth-
er as a community.
They can influence
the actions of govern-
ment, developers, and
other external forces.
They can also mobilize
their own assets – their
passion, knowledge,
skills, and relation-
ships – in support of
caring communities,
revitalized neighbor-
hoods, and a better
world.”
His book recounts
how Seattle’s Depart-
ment of Neighborhoods
has involved thousands
of residents in commu-
nity plans and self-help
projects. It also gives
tips on how ordinary
people can make a dif-
ference.
Christine DiGiam-
berardine, recreation
coordinator of neigh-
bourhood development
in Maple Ridge, said
people enjoy being con-
nected to their neigh-
bours, which leads to
improving the commu-
nity.
“He’s going to share
lots of stories,” which
could give people ideas
for their own communi-
ties.
“I think people have
a desire to be con-
nected.”

Cash was stolen from
three stores in Maple
Ridge during three
separate robberies that
happened in a span of
two days this week.
The latest hold-up
took place on North Av-
enue at Fraser Street
just before 2 p.m.
Insp. Dave Fluegel
said a man entered
the North Street Food
Market, produced “an
edged-weapon” and
threatened the clerk on
duty.
The man left with lot-
tery tickets, including
scratch-and-win cards,
and a small amount of
cash.
Fluegel said officers
responded quickly and
detained a man who
matched the descrip-
tion of the thief.
Ten hours earlier,
around 2:30 a.m., a man
walked into a 7-Eleven
store on the Lougheed
Highway at Laity Street
and brandished a knife.
He managed to take
a small amount of cash
from the till and ran out
of the store. He was last
seen heading east along
the highway.
He is described as
a white man between
5-7 and 5-11 with a me-
dium build, dirty, dark,
unwashed hair to the
bottom of his ears and
scruffy facial hair. He
was wearing dirty blue
jeans and a black zip-
up hooded sweatshirt.
Six hours earlier, a
man managed to steal
money from a till at
Dollar Giant on 207th
Street around 8 p.m.
Wednesday, before rid-
ing away on a bicycle.
The suspect is de-
scribed as a white man
in his 20s, approximate-
ly 6-0. He was wearing
beige track pants and
a brown long-sleeve
track suit. He was last
seen heading south to-
wards the Lougheed
Highway.
• Anyone with in-
formation is asked to
call 604-463-5261 or
CrimeStoppers at 1-800-
222-8477.
Pepper sprayed
Police are looking
for a man who pepper
sprayed another man in
an apartment building
on Tuesday.
The assault took place
around 11:20 p.m. on
McIntosh Avenue in Ma-
ple Ridge.
The man had just en-
tered the building lobby
when someone deployed
pepper spray.
Police said the man who
was sprayed managed to
get to his apartment and
call 911. Police are ask-
ing for any witnesses to
call 604-463-6251.
Prolifc ofenders
Ridge Meadows RCMP
have charged two men
and two women, all
known to police for
property crimes, under
the Trespass Act after
they were found on First
Nations land without
permission.
A Mountie patrol-
ling Lougheed Highway
in east Maple Ridge
around 11 a.m. checked
the property and found
a rental van parked in
the driveway.
On further investiga-
tion, he found the quar-
tet who were trying
move a truck that was
stuck in some mud.
Cpl. Alanna Dunlop
said police do not know
why the truck was on
the property.
The four suspects
were allowed to leave,
after receiving violation
tickets. The rental van
and the truck were both
towed.

I
t must be the Irish
in me that makes
me think summer-
blooming heathers are
some of our most beau-
tiful summer garden
plants.
Their colours are so
rich and vibrant that,
massed together, they
are simply stunning.
Heathers are drought-
tolerant, and during hot,
stressful days, they add
fresh new life and colour
to any garden.
Over the years, I have found that the
odd winter is severe enough to be tough
on summer-blooming callunas. Part of the
winter loss problem is due to cold winds and
little snow protection.
This problem can be alleviated by planting
your heathers in a sheltered location or by
using insulating cloth (looks a lot like Re-
may) as a quick and easy protective covering.
But in fact, far more heathers are lost due
to improper planting and care than to frost.
If you’re like me and are determined to
grow and enjoy these beautiful plants, then
here’s the game plan.
Drainage is the key. Heathers do not like
wet feet, so they must be in a location that
has porous soil. A one third each mixture of
peat moss, bark mulch and sand seems to be
ideal.
Always make certain the plants are moist
before planting by giving them a 30-second
soaking in a pail of warm water.
Telltale bubbles will rise out of the rootball
if the plant was too dry.
Before planting, be sure you gently mas-
sage the rootball of each plant to loosen
all the root hairs, freeing them to pick up
moisture.
Keep summer heathers moist at all times,
especially during the warm days of summer.
Plant your summer heather in a sunny
area, well protected from any severe winter
winds. Banks with a southern exposure are
ideal, and raised beds are always preferable
because of their warmer soil temperatures
and better drainage.
It is also surprising how much shade
callunas will tolerate, although they tend
to become a little more leggy, which can be
handled by proper pruning.
A wide selection of summer-blooming
heathers that suit all kinds of landscape
situations are available today. Low, compact
varieties, such as the new double white ‘Kin-
lochcruel’, the double pink ‘County Wicklow’,
the crimson red ‘Darkness’ and ‘Velvet
Knight’, are gorgeous as ground covers.
Don’t forget, they also make terrific cut and
dried flowers for arrangements.
Nothing quite matches a bouquet of fresh
cut heather in a glass vase. The old variety,
‘H.E. Beale’, is still one of the most known
for cuts, but ‘Jana’ is a new double red that
is also ideal. Other varieties, like the silver
foliaged ‘Silver Knight’ and ‘Velvet Fascina-
tion’ are great too. Today, there is a wide
selection of summer flowering varieties that
blend beautifully with annuals, perennials
and ornamental grasses.
I like planting heathers in groupings of
three or five and combining them with win-
ter-flowering varieties for a green contrast
now and gorgeous colour all winter long. A
few well chosen dwarf conifers, especially
the blue and gold varieties, blend in nicely
too.
If you haven’t seen just how beautiful
summer-blooming heathers can be, visit
your favourite garden shop this week. The
colour range is superb. For a bit of contrast,
pay close attention to the orange and gold
foliage varieties. It’s time to plant them now
and with the proper planting care and a little
winter protection, they will add a wonderful
touch of colour to your summer garden for
years to come.

Gardens just outside of Chilliwack.

If you’re looking to get away while
still being in the middle of everything,
Townline’s Te Gardens in Richmond
will be just the place for you.
Te development’s frst residential
project, Magnolia, is only the beginning
of this amazing space.
“Te Gardens is unique in the sense
that you will be away from it all, but ...
everything you will need is at your door
step,” says Townline’s Vice-President of
Sales and Marketing Chris Colbeck.
Magnolia will be a four-storey
building with three levels of residential,
anchored by retail space on the bottom
foor. A total of 92 apartment homes
will be released, and sales will be
starting soon. Colbeck is expecting a
great turnout.
“Based on the the unique purchasing
opportunity that Te Gardens provides,
the interest from the public has been
phenomenal,” he says. “Te fact the
purchasers will essentially have a 12-
acre natural garden at their doorstep is
an amazing attraction that (they) will
not fnd elsewhere.”
Floorplans range from 485 to 919
square feet, and are available in a
variety of one-bedroom and two-
bedroom foorplans.
While each home has its own unique
charm, all of them have a plethora
of amazing features. Prospective
homeowners who have stopped into the
presentation centre have no shortage
of compliments. “(Tey) are loving the
suite layout and the stylish West Coast
homes and architecture,” Colbeck says.
Every kitchen will be built in
a modern U-shape, which gives
homeowners a large amount of counter
space so you’ll never need to worry
about where to put anything. Luxurious
quartzite slab countertops and matte
white backsplash tiles combine for
a sleek, contemporary look, as if a
splash of sauce will never mar the cool
perfection. A stainless-steel appliance
suite is ready for all your cooking
needs, and sof-close cabinets with
brushed nickel hardware and under-
cabinet puck lighting are seamlessly
integrated into the entire design.
Bathrooms at Magnolia are built to
be soothing and serene. Soaker tubs are
included, and faux marble ceramic tub
splash tiles are the perfect complement.
Polished-chrome faucets by Moen are
standard, in addition to the hardware
by Taymor and a ceramic drop-in white
sink that brings to mind a luxury hotel
bathroom.
Buyers at Te Gardens will have
access to Te Gardens Club, which will
hold a badminton court, ping pong,
basketball hoops, a meeting room and a
fully equipped gym.
Situated on the site of the former
Fantasy Gardens, only a castle is still
standing at Te Gardens. Te castle,
a replica of Coevorden Castle in the
Netherlands that was given to the
city for Expo 86, will be turned into a
daycare centre.
Te Gardens is impossibly close to
everything a homeowner will need,
from shopping to restaurants. Across
the street from the Ironwood and
Coppersmith shopping centres, Te
Gardens is also close to excellent public
and private schools, and is minutes
away from the Canada Line. Residents
looking for entertainment will fnd it
at Riverport, where they will discover
the SilverCity movie theatres, Te Zone
bowling alley and WaterMania pool,
just a few minutes away by car.
Homes at Magnolia start at
$218,800 for a one-bedroom. For more
information visit liveatthegardens.ca or
call 604-271-3331.

Homeowners at Townline’s Magnolia at The Gardens will always be surrounded by luxury, from the laminate flooring in the living and dining areas
to the soft elegance of the master bedrooms.
Magnolia is growing
in Richmond
‘The interest from the public has been phenomenal’
18th annual Parade of Renovated Homes a success
GVHBA puts home renos on display
Renovators and their clients from
throughout the Lower Mainland came out to
strut their stuf last month.
Te Greater Vancouver Home Builders’
Association (GVHBA) held its 18th annual
Parade of Renovated Homes on June 12,
which saw 12 homes with recently completed
projects opened to the public. GVHBA
President and CEO Peter Simpson describes
the event as a big success, with each home
averaging between 180 and 200 visits and
some receiving as many as 265.
Contractors were on hand to explain
the projects to prospective clients, while
homeowners got a chance to show of their
snazzy new digs.
“Tey enjoyed it as much as the folks who
were touring,” Simpson says. “Everybody
seemed to be quite happy, they got lots of
ideas.”
With Lower Mainland homeowners set to
spend $4.4 billion on renovations this year,
Simpson says the parade was a great way for
homeowners to fnd inspiration for their own
houses and also meet contractors.
“I view it as a great success as an awareness
event, where people can see how renovations
should be done,” he says.
Simpson says the visitors lef with lots of
ideas for renovations in their own homes.
“Tey could see that their dreams for their
homes are quite doable,” he says. “Tey lef
enthused to go home and start their process.”
Tose who missed the event can visit www.
gvhba.org for information on the projects and
tips on starting your own renovation.


Everything
you will need
is at your
doorstep,” says Townline’s
Vice-President of Sales and
Marketing Chris Colbeck.

www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Friday, July 8, 2011 -- 37
I
have been
following
the fallout
from the Van-
couver riot, not
so much for the
news of it, but
as a context for
my own under-
standing of the
role of social
media in young
people’s lives.
More than
the articles
themselves, I
have been reading the
comments posted below
them. It is quite an
insight into the profile
of those who make com-
ments and perhaps even
the future issues that
young people will have
to reconcile in the world
of social interactions.
Given my age, I am
naturally skeptical of
hearing youth proclaim
all the advantages of
whatever technology
is new and better than
ever.
I am not a Luddite; I
like technology and I’m
relatively well versed in
it. But at the same time,
I know how to live with-
out it and thus I see its
limitations or potential
risks.
To be more accurate, I
should probably accept
that I might
see only a
few of the
limitations
or potential
risks. There
is a lot still not
understood
about the long-
term effects of
new technolo-
gies, both in
terms of hu-
man physical
health and
psychological
health.
As I read the com-
ments under many
articles, I was struck
by the continuous flow
of anger. Some of that
anger was directed
towards those “outed”
by the social media sites
that posted names and
pictures, but much was
also directed towards
fellow writers of com-
ments. There were
often spiraling levels of
hysterical discourse and
they were extremely
personal, full of exple-
tives and insults. And it
was all in public.
I suppose this is
the part I don’t un-
derstand. I have
always appreciated my
privacy. I have spent
considerable time as
an educator arguing
with students who have
defended their right to
privacy – “My locker is
a private space”– and,
quite frankly, I’ve been
sympathetic to their
rights for such privacy,
except in cases where I
felt the safety of others
was involved.
It seems so incongru-
ous to me to have the
same young people post
photos of themselves for
the world to see, make
nasty comments for
the world to read and
generally put all of their
personal information
permanently out there
for any stranger with
some programming
experience to have ac-
cess to.
I believe they live un-
der the illusion of ano-
nymity. With everyone
putting phony names
as identifiers for com-
ments, they believe they
are hidden from the
world and, thus, entitled
to spew their venom
without consequences.
This is risky.
Social media, as
some have learned, is
a double-edged sword.
If you put yourself out
in public, then you are
discovered in real life,
the public may well turn
on you. There were, in
the comments, a mob
mentality worthy of the
French Revolution, with
real names and real
addresses published
to incite even greater
targeting.
As a parent, I am
having conversations
with my 20-something
sons about the risks of
social media. They are
a bit blasé about it all;
they tell me they are
too busy to spend much
time engaging in social
media. But even they
admit they have been
surprised by the way so-
cial media has become
a potentially dangerous
weapon in the hands of
a mob.
If they were 14 or 15,
we’d be spending some
of the summer getting
educated about the
proper use of social me-
dia before a single error
in judgment could have
calamitous results.

ou can’t afford
not to be on Fa-
cebook, Twitter
and LinkedIn.
Just don’t spend all
day on it; start slowly,
and if you don’t have
the time or expertise,
pay someone to do it
for you.
“Just keep it simple.
Don’t bite off more than
you can chew,” sug-
gests Brenda Garcia,
with Thrive Solutions
business consultants.
Garcia was one of the
presenters at Maple
Ridge and Pitt Meadows
Chamber of Commerce
social media summit
last week and said later
that social media allows
a business to develop
long-term relationships
with a potential base of
customers.
By showing your
personal side, putting
up good value articles
about whatever con-
cerns you, demonstrat-
ing that you’re inter-
ested and trustworthy
and limiting your sales
posts to about 15 per
cent of total, you can
nurture a network of
followers who may re-
member you when it’s
time to look for your
services.
“I really think every
company out there can
use social media to
their benefit in some
way,” said Garcia.
But it does take time
– like any other rela-
tionship.
“Basically,
social media
is just like any
real-life rela-
tionship. You
have to put
in the time
to maintain
those rela-
tionships.”
You also
should be
c o u r t e o u s ,
by replying if someone
Tweets about you or
maintaining contact
with Face-
book friends.
“It’s just
like real life,”
said Garcia.
Ch a mb e r
exe c ut i ve -
d i r e c t o r
Jesse Sidhu
o r g a n i z e d
the event as
the chamber
tries to move
its meetings
to an educational focus.
“Social media should
be part of your market-
ing strategy, not the
other way around,”
said Sidhu.
It should be used in
conjunction with other
efforts to build a busi-
ness’s profile, such as
marketing, print and
radio advertising.
It’s up to each busi-
ness to decide whether
to hire someone or try
it themselves. If it takes
too much time, it’s tak-
ing you away from sales
and your regular busi-
ness, he adds.
Garcia says business-
es should look at hir-
ing someone if they’re
struggling, just like
she brings her car for
a 10-minute oil change
rather than spending
a week trying to do it
herself.
Using HootSuite is a
timesaver for her. That
allows Garcia to make
one post simultaneous-
ly to the different social
media sites and to time
their release on any
schedule. That came in
handy when she went
on vacation for a week
and sent out her posts
in advance, allowing
her to respond to any
feedback by cell.
Garcia is organizing
a Tweetup so that all
the Twitter users can
step out of cyberspace
and see each other in
person.
That takes place Aug.
10 at 7:30 p.m. at Buf-
falo Club Bar and Grill.
NonTwitterers are also
welcome.
Illustration
Like it or not, social media is here so business owners should learn how to make it work for them.

Promote
Pitt Meadows
Are you one of those people
that can’t say enough good
things about Pitt Meadows?
The Pitt Meadows Economic
Development Corporation
has developed a program
that could ft.
Its Ambassador Program
brings together residents,
business people and key
leaders to help promote Pitt
Meadows as the commu-
nity to live, work, play and
invest.
Ambassadors are a team of
local volunteers who act as a
link to maximize the positive
synergies between residents
and businesses.
Ambassadors welcome new
businesses and assist with
business participation in
community events as well
as ground-breakings, grand
openings and business
anniversary celebrations.
They may also speak to asso-
ciations, trade and business
groups and generally help
raise positive awareness
of PMEDC’s development
initiatives.
Ambassadors will help tell
Pitt Meadows’ story and
raise the city’s profle,
which builds a stronger
community.
It’s also a good way to build
relationships with residents
and businesses in your
community.

EVENT

WHILE SUPPLIES LAST
www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Friday, July 8, 2011 -- 41
In the biggest game of the
season on Saturday, Maple
Ridge’s Daniel Molendijk
showed why he’ll be suit-
ing up for the University of
the Fraser Valley Cascades
men’s soccer team in Sep-
tember.
The 17-year-old recent
Thomas Haney secondary
grad potted a pair of goals
and added a pair of assists
as his Abbotsford Magnuson
Ford Mariners FC trounced
Shuswap FC 5-0 in the B.C.
U-18 provincial final. The
win means Molendijk and
the rest of the Mariners
will be off to Fredericton,
New Brunswick to compete
in the BMO U-18 National
Championships.
“He is a very good strik-
er and holds the ball very
well,” says Alan Errington,
head coach for the Mari-
ners. “He’s a hard worker
and he’s learned how to do
the simple things quickly,
and that’s the hardest thing
to teach them to do.”
If anyone can spot soccer
talent, it’s Errington, who
was an assistant coach for
Team Canada in the 1990s
under Bob Lenarduzzi.
Errington is also the head
coach for the University of
Fraser Valley Cascades,
and has recruited Molendi-
jk to play for the CIS team.
“The sad thing about soc-
cer in Canada is that with
only four or five profes-
sional teams, there isn’t
anywhere for them to go,”
Errington says. “But the
next best route is univer-
sity.”
Molendijk says he’s look-
ing forward to making the
jump to university soccer
with the Cascades.
“I love getting coached by
him,” says Molendijk, who
admits Errington’s intense
coaching style caught him
off guard at first. “He’ll tell
you exactly what you’re do-
ing wrong, but you can’t
take it personal. It’s con-
structive criticism, he’s
trying to help you be bet-
ter.”
Molendijk plans to study
kinesiology while at UFV,
and hopes to land a scholar-
ship, should he be eligible.
Molendijk started playing
soccer when he was just
four years old, playing with
the six-year-olds on his old-
er brother’s team. He con-
tinued to play up with older
players with the Golden
Ears United Soccer Club.
After a playing with a
competitive summer league
team in Abbotsford, Mo-
lendijk make the jump to
the neighbouring associa-
tion when he was 12 years
old.
Molendijk and his team-
mates will have a while to
wait before they can take a
run at a national title, how-
ever. While the Mariners’
season is now over, the
BMO National Champion-
ships don’t take place until
October.
“We are going to try to
train together until then,”
he said. Making things eas-
ier will be the fact that nine
members of the Mariners
will be playing with Cas-
cades next season.
Errington has twice
coached U-18 national
championship teams, in
2002 and 2003, and said the
Mariners have the skill to
win a third.
“I think we’re an even
stronger squad,” he said.

Maple Ridge’s Daniel Molendijk had two goals and two assists to lead his Abbotsford Magnuson Ford
Mariners to a U-18 provincial championship on Saturday.
Local striker
headed to
nationals
A pair of Ridge Meadows soft-
ball teams won regional softball
championships last weekend,
as the Ridge Meadows Sharpe’s
Blue Devils took the squirt title,
while the Ridge Meadows Kaos
took the bantam C title.
The Blue Devils won their re-
gional banner by knocking off
the Ridge Meadows Strikers 9-7
in the tournament final.
“The girls pulled it out in the
end,” said coach Sterling Perley.
“What a way to end a season.”
The Blue Devils went undefeat-
ed in the round robin, beating
Langley 11-3, Coquitlam 20-10,
Newton 18-3 and the Strikers by
a score of 14-10.
The Blue Devils faced White
Rock in the first round of the
playoffs, beating them 15-9, set-
ting up a semi final game with
the Ridge Meadows Strikers. Af-
ter two extra innings the Strikers
came out on top 11-10. However,
because of the double-knockout
tournament format, the Blue
Devils were still in the running.
Again they faced White Rock,
beating them 17-11 to advance to
the final.
For the third time in the tourna-
ment, the Blue Devils faced their
association rivals, the Strikers,
beating them 9-7 in a back and
forth battle.
“You could have charged ad-
mission and everyone would
have got their money’s worth,”
Perley said. “There was some re-
ally good ball on both sides.”
Perley said the team’s accom-
plishment was all the more sig-
nificant given that many of the
girls on the team hadn’t played
together before this season. The
team started the year going 1-4,
but as the girls bonded, the play
improved.
“We peaked at the right time,”
said Perley.
The Blue Devils are Erin Ben-
nett, Amanda Perley, Madison
Schmidt, Taylor Wynn, Hannah
Trampleasure, Amanda Meers,
Hanna Pahl, Allyson Stewart,
Michelle Regan, Thalia Latham,
Maddison Innes, Izabelle Schultz,
Sabrina Jay, Candice Tunison,
and Sarah Gasston.
The Ridge Meadows bantam C
Kaos team also won their region-
al championships last weekend.
The Kaos played 10 games at
the season-ending tournament,
including five games on Sunday,
before defeating Abbotsford 9-2
in the final.
Over the weekend, Michelle
McDonald pitched an amazing 58
innings, with 95 strikeouts, while
catcher Dawn Erickson battled
through the heat and dust. Lucy
Bonner contributed with three
double plays, while Kayla Reeves
went 4-4 at bat in the final game.
The entire team had a strong
tournament, with Sarah Davies,
Dominique Fromyhr, Keysha
Gould, Nikki Hansen, Carley
Partridge, Faith Shulman and
Carmen Watson all contributing.
The team is coached by Shelley
Olivier, Alex Hansen and Kim
Reeves.

The Ridge Meadows
Royals bantam AAA
baseball team eked
out a 2-1 victory over
the Tri-City Indians
on Tuesday under the
sunny skies of Pitt
Meadows Athletic
Park, improving to 19-
8-1 in B.C. bantam AAA
baseball league play,
good for third place.
The Royals batters
didn’t have their usual
offensive punch on
this day, while at least
two rallies were cut
short by unfavorable
calls on the bases and
one botched suicide
squeeze.
Brendan Halstrom
had an RBI with a laser
up the middle, while
Ben Stadnik hit a tri-
ple off the right field
fence.
Royals pitching was
stellar again with Gra-
ham Bailey picking up
his eighth victory of
the season. Kole Be-
nard came in and was
nothing short of spec-
tacular over his 2 in-

New tricks for the dog days of summer
Y
ou’ve probably experi-
enced the sensation of
running around for the
first time in the scorch-
ing summer weather.
The legs are fine for
awhile, but soon they
feel like they are slosh-
ing through thick, sticky
molasses.
And as the unrelent-
ing heat continues to
smother you, the sweat
seems to roll effort-
lessly off your skin, your
lungs are increasingly
impotent as they try and
absorb every molecule
of oxygen from the air
and your muscles get shaky and
loose coordination as your energy
supply starts to dwindle.
As we have emerged from our
cool cocoon of spring and very
suddenly launched headlong into
the full throes of summer, we
must be aware of the effect that
heat has on exercise and also
know what to expect as the body
acclimates to the heat. That way
we can stay safe and make the
most of our exercise and outdoor
play.
The gradual build up of heat in
the body is called heat stress and
is a great concern for exercis-
ers during play in the summer
months. By slowly allowing the
body to adapt to higher tem-
peratures, we can prevent heat
cramps, heat exhaustion, heat
stroke, and life threatening hyper-
thermia – this process is
called acclimatization.
The average person
has more than two mil-
lion sweat glands. Sweat
is made up of water and
electrolytes, such as
sodium, chloride, and
potassium. When the
core temperature of
the body increases, the
hypothalamus increases
blood flow to the skin,
which stimulates the
sweat glands. The result
is an increase in the rate
of water and heat loss through
sweating.
The reason why we feel tired
much sooner in the heat is that as
our bodies send more blood to the
skin for cooling, this draws much
needed blood away from work-
ing muscles and causes a lower
amount of blood available to the
heart leading to higher heart rates
at any given work load.
The loss of electrolytes and
fluid from sweating will lead to a
decreased blood volume and add
additional demand on the entire
circulatory system.
All these organs and systems
will change and adapt to heat
stress, given enough exposure.
Heat acclimation is the process
whereby an individual is able to
maintain a higher blood plasma
and volume level, increased sweat
rate, a reduction of salt in the
sweat, a reduction in the fatigue
rate of sweat glands, and quicker
response of sweating when heat
stress occurs.
Acclimation is produced from re-
peated exposure to heat sufficient
to raise body core temperature.
It will occur more quickly and
effectively by exercising instead of
sitting in a hot room or standing
in the sun for example.
Only a few sessions of one hour
of moderate exercise in the heat
will produce physical changes in
un-acclimated individuals in as
little as a few days to about one
week. However, the feeling of
normal exercise ability (perceived
exertion) in a hot environment
can take up to one month to occur.
The bottom line is, go out and
enjoy the sun, using proper sun-
screen and fluid replacement, but
be patient, and take it in smaller
doses initially, gradually increas-
ing your exposure time.
If you are an athlete in training,
be wary of the signs of heat stress
and adjust your training intensity
and duration accordingly.
