The base salaries for Maple
Ridge’s municipal council will be
going up after November’s civic
election and continue to rise until
2013.
Mayor Ernie Daykin, Couns.
Judy Dueck, Al Hogarth, Craig
Speirs and Linda King supported
the increase Tuesday, which will
see base wages rise by nine per
cent for the mayor and 13 per cent
for councillors over three years.
Members also decided that the
next council will review the dis-
trict’s indemnity policy in 2012,
with a committee of citizens.
“I think the present format
works pretty well, but I’m on the
inside, so it’s hard to tell,” said
Speirs.
“I think we
need the ex-
a mi n a t i o n
from a citi-
zens’ commit-
tee. Just to
make sure we
are doing the
right thing. It
is tough hav-
ing to vote
on your own
pay raise. No-
body wants to
abuse the taxpayer, but we really
need to attract quality candidates
who can take time out of their
work to do this.”
A staff report found Maple Ridge
is lagging behind its defined mar-
ket of 10 other municipalities
when it came to base salary (a
sum that doesn’t include other
cash payments, such as car allow-
ance or acting mayor’s pay).
The mayor’s current base sala-
ry, $92,300, is nine per cent behind
the market.
Councillors, who pull in
$37,300 a year, were making 13
per cent less.
Coun. Mike Morden voted against the pay increase, used

Move to
exclude
First Nations
from vote
Municipal councils in Metro Vancou-
ver are being asked to mull whether
people who live on First Nation re-
serves should be excluded from civic
elections.
A paper being circulated by the Low-
er Mainland Treaty Advisory Commit-
tee, which represents 26 jurisdictions,
wants the issue discussed as more
First Nations explore market housing,
which could lead to large increases in
populations on reserves.
The paper recommends the province
amend municipal and regional district
boundaries to leave out native reserve
land.
“It’s fundamental democratic com-
mon sense,” said committee chair
Ralph Drew.

F
or days in
November,
Daughty Preena
woke up with sweaty
palms and stomach
aches. She worried
excessively.
“Is it true? Is it true?” she asked
herself repeatedly.
Preena had made the decision
to close her daycare, which oper-
ated in Pitt Meadows for the past
three decades. With her husband
retiring, she says it’s time for the
couple to spend more time togeth-
er and travel.
“It’s going to hit me next week,”
Preena said, “when I don’t hear
their voices.”
Preena’s Wildwood Park Group
Daycare closes its doors for good
today. To commemorate its years
of operation, Preena is hosting an
open house at the daycare Satur-
day afternoon.
“It’s sad to see it end,” said Mary
Morallato, whose two sons were
the first to enter Preena’s day-
care. “It doesn’t really affect me
personally anymore, but she was
definitely an institution in Pitt
Meadows.”
The evenly spaced, unassuming
Wildwood Crescent houses con-
vey little about that.
But the basement of Preena’s
home Wednesday morning is bus-
tling, as it has for 30 years.
The daycare is divided into two
rooms, one for toys, one for books.
Along one side of the reading room
is a bookcase with picture books
and pop-up books for new readers.
A small table with equally small
chairs sit in the centre of the room
and a couple of larger, grown-up
chairs flank the corners.
Not toddlers, but a few teenag-
ers fill the reading room – daycare
goers of a previous time who drop
by from time to time during their
summer vacation. Their legs now
jut out far passed the ends of the
chairs they used to comfortably sit
on. Parents also stop in for a coffee
as they drop off their kids.
Around the corner, five kids pat-
ter around the playroom, building
puzzles and stacking blocks, excit-
edly plotting elaborate games.
“We’re building a tower to the
sky,” said one toddler.
Preena sits on the floor beside
her helping with the ambitious
project. With her short black hair
away from her face and in beige
capris, comfort is key for anyone
devoted to playing with energetic
toddlers.
Shelves of toys outline the perim-
eter with two tables and surround-
ing chairs in the centre. A vibrant
garden mural stretches across the
four walls against a bright purple
background.
“My goal was to create a safe,
small group-home setting,” said
Preena, who in the past three
decades would only accept eight
kids at a time.
“Parents liked the small ratio. I
could give the kids more attention,
take them for walks, prepare them
for kindergarten.”
As a high school student in Sri
Lanka, Preena dreamed of work-
ing with children. Once she ar-
rived in B.C. with her husband
and 14-month-old daughter, the
thought of owning a daycare be-
gan to percolate.
“I love working with children,”
said Preena. “You get to guide
them through their mistakes and
challenges. These things they car-
ry on as adults.”
Preena began work at Queens-
borough Daycare in the mid-1970s.
During these days, she struggled
to find quality care for her daugh-
ter, who was too young to accom-
pany her to Queensborough. Frus-
trated by the lack of resources and
quality facilities in the area, the
first seeds of Preena’s Wildwood
vision took root.
In 1980, with another baby on
the way, Preena set to work to
get her daycare license. Her first
four kids came through the doors
of Wildwood in 1981, shortly after
the birth of her son.
“Those early days were a bit dif-
ficult,” said Preena. “I would have
the daycare open long hours, from
about 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.”
Always working with one staff
member, Preena would have brief
periods to nip off and prepare din-
ner for her own kids. Her husband
Nissar would then serve and bath
the kids, and help clean the day-
care in the evenings.
“I really enjoyed having all the
children around,” he said. “I real-
ized that for some of them, they
needed a father figure in their
lives.”
He remembers taking one day-
care graduate – now married and
living in Victoria – to his first day
at kindergarten.
“His parents were recently sep-
arated,” said Nissar. “His mom
worked early and his father didn’t
show up. When the teacher asked,
‘Where’s your dad?’ He pointed to
me.” Nissar laughs.
Daughty Preena accommodated
her schedule to the needs of the
parents. Early morning breakfast
was served if the kids needed to be
dropped off earlier, late-night care
was provided in the case of emer-
gencies. Summers passed with
little vacation time for her.
“I remember those early morn-
ings,” said Preena’s daughter, Di-
lani Andrews. “I’d wake up to kids
eating breakfast in our kitchen.
There were always kids around,
so it was nice as a kid. I’d come
back from school and have a place
to play.”
Word spread about Wildwood
and soon Preena had to turn peo-
ple down if she already had eight
kids. The daycare became a cen-
tral feature in a tight-knit neigh-
bourhood.
“You knew that when you sent
your kids there, they were taken
care of,” said Morallato.

4 -- Friday, July 29, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
Staff proposed the dis-
trict catch up to the mar-
ket over three years, by
incrementally increas-
ing the base salary for
the mayor by two per-
cent this year, another
2.65 per cent in 2012 and
four per cent in 2013.
Councillors will get a
three per cent increase
this year, another four
per cent in 2012 and a six
per cent raise in 2013.
Last year, the consum-
er price index increased
by 1.8 per cent.
If the CPI stays steady
for the next three years,
the mayor will collect a
base salary of $106,000
by 2013, while council-
lors’ wages will would
go up to $45,000.
A review in 2008 re-
sulted in a raise of 53
percent for councillors,
while the mayor’s salary
jumped 28 per cent.
Council then decided
to peg salaries at the 65
percentile range – mean-
ing Maple Ridge would
remain below 65 per
cent of the other coun-
cils’ salaries, but above
35 per cent.
Coun. Michael Morden
voted against the rec-
ommended the new in-
crease after using his
Facebook page to poll
how the public felt.
Of the more than 30
comments elicited, a ma-
jority felt Maple Ridge
councillors were mak-
ing enough money.
“Cost of living index
increases are okay, but
that’s just me,” said
Morden, who’d like to
see the way the dis-
trict currently reviews
council salaries looked
at again as the cur-
rent method has Maple
Ridge continually trying
to keep pace with other
municipalities.
“There has to be rea-
sonable caps set in place
all around, so this snow-
ball-type effect doesn’t
happen.”
Cheryl Ashlie was the
other councillor who vot-
ed against the pay raise
because she also feels
fairly compensated.
“It was so suited to
what we wanted at the
time. She had an under-
standing for children and
those initial beginnings
are so important. She
taught them about hav-
ing mutual respect.”
Preena devoted herself
to learning about the care
of children and their edu-
cation. She knew how to
care for kids with special
needs, and how to pre-
pare the older kids for
school the following year.
“She would liaison with
the schools when the kids
were ready to go,” said
Morallato. “She’d talk to
the families and prepare
them for the next year.”
Morallato says that
she nominated Preena
for Pitt Meadows Citizen
of the Year, not only for
the daycare but because
of Preena’s many other
community initiatives.
In 2004, she began Vil-
lage Assist after the tsu-
nami left Sri Lanka in
distress. Parents in the
neighbourhood immedi-
ately called Preena when
they heard about the di-
saster, asking what they
could do to help. With
their support, Preena
launched the charity and
began fundraising.
The charity gave money
to a village, in particular-
ly bad shape, to build five
houses and buy 20 bikes,
sewing machines, and
fishing boats. The $7,000
left over – not enough for
another house – was giv-
en to Asante Centre for
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
this March.
“I really believe chil-
dren are the future of
the community,” said
Preena. “I want to donate
to children’s causes as
much as possible.”
At the daycare, Preena
would also schedule the
day for the kids to have
a routine to follow. It be-
gan with two and a half
hours of preschool, then
free play. After snack
time, they would go out-
side to play on the back-
yard jungle gym or go for
group walks.
“As a kid, I loved it. But
as a teenager, I began
to avoid it at all costs,”
said Andrews, laughing.
“I vowed never to have
kids, they were always
around.”
Andrews has since put
her two sons through her
mother’s daycare and re-
turned to help as a staff
member.
“It’s been an interest-
ing experience learn-
ing about the children’s
unique experiences and
needs,” said Preena.
“They’ve taught me a lot.
You need to have great
patience with them.”
She pauses. A dispute
has broken out between
two boys over building
blocks. One five-year-old
insists the four-year-old
won’t share. In an even
tone, Preena reasons
with the boys, paying
them mutual respect and
hearing them out. Crisis
averted.
“Yeah, I had to sit on
the thinking chair a lot,”
Hishaam Wewala said
with a smile revealing
braces. The now quiet
17-year-old spent the
first four years of his life
at Preena’s daycare. “I’d
be bossy and didn’t like
to share. It didn’t fly with
Auntie Daughty.”
Wewala met two of his
good friends during the
early days at Wildwood.
The three boys went
through elementary and
high school together.
“My mom worked at
6 a.m. so I’d have to get
up early,” said Wewala.
“But I never complained
about it. I looked forward
to coming here. She was
a motherly figure.”
As most of the kids
still keep in touch with
each other, they almost
all keep in touch with
Preena.
Hanging on one day-
care wall are more than
30 pictures of Preena with
her daycare children. Ev-
ery year she would take
a classroom-like picture
of the kids from that
year. Little four-year-
olds smile back in frames
marked 1982, then their
kids smile back in frames
marked 2005.
Preena takes a jumbo
pencil to the wall, point-
ing out which ones are
married, which ones are
at university, which ones
became doctors.
“I feel old looking at
these,” said Preena, but
she corrects herself with
a laugh and a pointed
index finger. “No, I’m
young at heart. The kids
keep me young.”
Many of them, past and
present, will be at the
open house on Saturday,
noon to 4 p.m. One of
Preena’s nieces brought
over her two daughters
from London, England so
that they could see their
great aunt’s daycare
before it closes. Preena
will provide drinks and
refreshments, and enter-
tainment for the kids.
“Of course I’ll be there,”
said Morallato. “My one
son is going, but the
other is upset that he
can’t make it. They love
her dearly and visit her
whenever they come
back. She’s always been
Auntie Daughty next
door.”
Preena says it’s going
to take a while adjusting
to the change.
“I’ve loved the chal-
lenges and fun I’ve had
with them,” she said.
“Kids are just so honest,
they’ll tell you anything.
I’m really going to miss
that, and just hearing
their laughter out in the
backyard.”

AUTO AIR
CONDITIONING
With the recent spate of hot weather,
the phone calls regarding the topic of air
conditioning have skyrocketed once again. This
happens every year, so we are prepared and
raring to go. In fact we do A/C repairs all year
round. It seems every phone call we receive
involves us repeating the same speech over
and over and over again. Therefore it became
obvious to me what I would be writing about
this week.
The majority of A/C system failures are due
to leaks. The ‘refrigerant’ leaks from wherever
it can whenever it can, due to any number of
reasons. No human being on the face of this
planet can tell you what it’s going to cost to
repair your A/C system without first doing
an A/C performance test. And what is an A/C
performance test you ask? It’s a thorough
examination of the mechanical components
that make up the plumbing of the system
which contains the ‘refrigerant’. It also involves
inspecting the heating and ventilation system
found under the dash as well as the mechanical
and computer controlled electronics of the
system. This is the only way to assess the
necessary repairs required to facilitate a
successful result, ie: making it work again!
A proper performance test can take anywhere
up to 1.5 hours and no one does this for free,
so be prepared to pay for this service. In fact
it’s the most important money you’re going to
spend toward this type of repair as it gives you
an option. You're not authorizing any more
than the basic charges and if the quote is too
high then you can thank us very much and
continue on your way. Air-conditioning (A/C )
repairs can be costly so you may need time to
budget or line up some credit to complete the
job. Having a professional quote documenting
all the items required to repair your vehicle’s
A/C system lets you plan out your maintenance
budget to accommodate this repair.
Some of you are aware of the necessity of
upgrading (retrofitting) pre-1994 vehicles to a
new type of ‘refrigerant’ while some of you are
not. Do not get bogged down or confused over
this issue as it’s not the least bit complicated. If
your ‘refrigerant’ has leaked out causing your
1993 or older A/C systems to fail, the repairs
required to fix your vehicle are identical to
those of a post 1994 vehicle with the new A/C
systems, if it has the same problem and most
do. The only difference is the replacement of
a few fittings and minor items at a minimal
cost. It’s the parts and labour required to fix
the A/C system that cost the most. If you’re
informed by someone that you have to change
a lot of components to retro-fit or upgrade
your pre-1994 vehicle A/C system, they may be
misinforming you.
In closing I would like to bring your attention to
the word ‘Refrigerant’ which I have highlighted
throughout this article. It’s not called Freon or
gas it’s called ‘Refrigerant’. Class dismissed!

The owner of Nor-
thumberland Court has
30 days to demolish the
townhouse complex.
Council moved Tues-
day to take action
against the dilapidated
Fraser Street prop-
erty Tuesday following
an inspection on July
12, when district staff
found the buildings had
been broken into and
wiring was tampered
with.
The buildings have
been found “insecure”
eight times since Janu-
ary and the inspec-
tion found they are
an extreme hazard to
firefighters, should a
fire break out in any of
them.
Since January 2004,
the fire department has
responded to at least 72
calls from Northumber-
land Court, 11 of them
fire-related.
Vancouver developer
Ghalib Rawji, who now
owns the property, has
said he will demolish
them within weeks.
Rawji bought the
complex last year, af-
ter years of municipal
and police frustration
at controlling the drug
haven.
He later bought the
lot immediately to
the west, with access
to 224th Street, so he
could build more apart-
ments, as well as office
space.
Rawji intends to sub-
mit final drawings to
the district for 29 town-
houses and a 24-unit
apartment building by
the end of August.
BIA gets support
Only one business in
downtown Maple Ridge
opposed the creation
of bylaw to keep the
business improvement
association around for
another five years.
The single opposing
voice wasn’t enough to
stop the district from
giving the bylaw sec-
ond and third reading
on Tuesday.
It creates the frame-
work for a higher levy,
raising the total take
next year from its
1,000 or so members to
$193,500 from $163,500.
By the time the bylaw
expires in 2016, the dis-
trict will be collecting
$213,600.
227th safer
Pedestrians and cy-
clists will be safer when
they travel along 227th
Street.
The District of Maple
Ridge has awarded a
$212,449 contract to Im-
perial Paving Ltd. to be-
gin construction of traf-
fic calming measures
along the stretch.
Traffic circles and
curb bulge-outs will be
built at the intersec-
tions of 116th Avenue
and Holyrood Avenue,
while 227th St. will be
narrowed by approxi-
mately 1.5 metres south
of Holyrood Ave. to ac-
commodate a multi-use
path on the east side.
There will also be a
designated bike lane on
the west side of 227th
St. between the Haney
Bypass and Holyrood
Ave.

T
he dikes in Pitt
Meadows and
Maple Ridge are
pretty awesome, build
by the Dutch after the
Second World War.
I think they are one
of the best things
that ever happened to
our area north of the
Fraser River.
Apart from the valu-
able farmland that
was created, many
people now use the
dikes that protect
the farmland from flooding for leisurely
strolls, bike rides or horseback riding.
It was a smart move by the City of Pitt
Meadows and the District of Maple Ridge
to build trails on the dikes.
The Dutch have more clever ideas and
skills than just building dikes, though.
They also design and build great cycling
infrastructure.
Many cities in Holland are old, and
built right from the start for active trans-
portation: walking and biking, with nar-
row streets, and schools, neighbourhood
shops and other amenities at walking or
biking distance from where people lived.
But there are also newer cities and
newer neighbourhoods that are just as
wonderful for cycling. Where the car
speeds and volumes make cycling on
the road uncomfortable, separated bike
paths are provided, so that young and
old feel safe getting around. And just
like there are extensive cycling net-
works within cities, there is an extensive
cycling network throughout the whole
country.
After the Second World War, govern-
ments at all levels in Holland started
building more roads for cars, just like
everywhere else, and cycling didn’t get
a lot of attention anymore. That lasted
until the early 1970s, about 25 years. The
oil crisis shook the decision makers back
to their senses. They also realized they
couldn’t go on building ever more roads,
with the limited space available, espe-
cially in the densely populated western
part of the country.
The expanding roads didn’t seem to
solve the congestion problems anyway. It
was decided to focus on improving both
transit and cycling infrastructure as
alternative transportation options, and
they’ve never looked back.
Now, after some 40 years of consistent
investments in cycling infrastructure
and lots of trial and error, resulting in an
amazingly efficient and well-functioning
cycling network, the Dutch are reap-
ing the many benefits. Their cities are
much more livable, they have much less
air and noise pollution, produce much
less greenhouse gasses per capita, need
much less space for parking and roads
than would have been the case if many
of the trips presently made by bicycle
or transit were made by car, and they’re
less fat.
Some statistics: of all trips made in the
Netherlands, 26 per cent are by bike; of
trips shorter than five km, 36 per cent
are made by bicycle.
A stat that I think is quite interest-
ing for folks in Maple Ridge and Pitt
Meadows, both served by the West Coast
Express: of all trips to train and bus sta-
tions in Holland, 39 per cent are made by
bike. You should see all the bikes parked
at train stations, sometimes numbering
into the thousands.
And, the percentage of trips by bike in
Holland by those 65 and older: 25.
In other European countries, the
awareness that cycling offers huge bene-
fits, not only to cyclists, but to everyone,
is growing rapidly, and amazing things
are happening.
Until recently, Seville, Spain, a city
of 700,000, had no cycling culture. Five
years ago, only about 0.2 per cent of
all utilitarian trips there were made
by bicycle – fewer than the number of
trips made by bike in Maple Ridge or
Pitt Meadows (one to two per cent). But
now seven per cent of trips in Seville are
made by bike. You can now see many
children, women and elderly people
pedaling around the city.
The Sevillanos looked north to the
Netherlands for inspiration, and their
goal was to create a complete bicycle
network, so that cyclists were not left
dangling on a thread, hanging on for
dear life, when a bike lane suddenly
ends.
The design target for the Seville
cycling plan was a 65-year-old woman
carrying groceries on her bike. In other
words, if it’s safe for her, it’s safe for
anyone.

Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows?
@ Online poll: cast your vote at www.mapleridgenews.com, or e-mail your vote and comments to editor@mapleridgenews.com
Neighbours along the North Alouette River are
upset at a farmer for allowing trucks to dump fill
from construction sites on agricultural land.
The Agricultural Land Commission says Hang
Cho, who owns the two fill properties at the north
end of 224th Street, is doing nothing wrong.
The District of Maple Ridge also says he is doing
nothing wrong, although it is monitoring the prop-
erties as Mr. Cho was previously told he would need
a permit and pay a fee to work within the district’s
30-metre stream setback requirement.
The fill is now getting close to that range, although
the neighbours claim it has already compromised
that. They also worry damage is being done to the
river and habitat. They also maintain that building
roads and berms does not improve the farmland,
but undermines its use for growing food.
Mr. Cho, by the way, has listed the properties for
sale online for $1.2 million – 10.45 acres with “poten-
tial for a development in a prime location.”
Of more concern to the neighbours, however, is
the Alouette valley’s history of flooding. They fear
that by allowing Mr. Cho to raise the level of his low-
lying properties, water will be diverted and flood
their properties during extreme rainy periods.
A hydrology study of the Alouette rivers that took
three years to complete and was recently presented
to council recognizes that “raising or infilling of
land” displaces water and relocates the flooding
problem to other properties.
The study recommended the district consider a
flood management strategy to ensure new or up-
graded flood protection structures do no adversely
affect the overall flood hazard.
What will happen to water now when it runs off
Mr. Cho’s properties?
A district report from 2009 raised the same flood-
ing concerns the neighbours are expressing now
and said qualified professionals would have to
review any plans to ensure any regrading doesn’t
affect safety or other neighbours. It also said the dis-
trict would have to ensure any soil deposits don’t in-
crease flooding danger to neighbouring properties.
This should have been determined before all the
fill was allowed to be dumped there, especially giv-
en the area’s history.
Mr. Cho may be playing by the rules, but the dis-
trict’s lack of concern and leniency here, especially
given what its own hydrology study suggests, is
puzzling, to say the least.
Someone has some explaining to do.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: No crossing light is Re-
dunkulis (Along the Fraser,
July 22).
Jack Emberly’s article
brings to the fore, again, the
issue of a pedestrian cross-
ing light on 224th Street
north of Brown Avenue.
Following Phil Melny-
chuk’s article on July 7, I
contacted both your report-
er and Michael Eng, and
found, that although some
information in the column
was a bit misleading, Mr.
Eng continues to downgrade
the importance of a light.
As chairperson of the
Maple Ridge Seniors Safety
Control Committee, I re-
searched information re-
garding 224th Street.
More than 600 seniors live
in those blocks, 2,340 mem-
bers of Royal Canadian Le-
gion Branch 88 access its
lounge and office there, and
the Ridge Members Seniors
Society has 1,200-plus mem-
bers using the activity cen-
tre there.
Is this not enough vehicu-
lar (forgetting the pedestri-
an) traffic to warrant a light
to protect the pedestrians?
We circulated a petition
and garnered more than 300
signatures of support.
Does the opinion of your
employers not count, Mr.
Eng?
When our committee made
a presentation to a meeting
of Maple Ridge council, we
were given a document stat-
ing: “Workplan Highlights –
12011 – Improvements – Se-
niors Area on 224th Street,
Design a Pedestrian Acti-
vated Signal (Budget 2013)”.
We were disappointed by
the timeline, but accepted
the proposal.
Now, Mr. Eng, are you re-
neging on this promise?
Yes, Mr. Emberly, this is
“redunkulis’.
If Mr. Eng’s statements
prove to be correct, our com-
mittee will be reactivated
as we are adamant that pe-
destrians, especially senior
pedestrians, be protected.
Do we want to see further
injuries and perhaps death
to other pedestrians?
No.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
The negative response by
Fraser Valley Regional Dis-
trict officials to the condi-
tional provincial approval
for the GVRD to construct
a solid waste incinerator
is unreasonable and ill in-
formed.
GVRD municipalities cur-
rently generate in excess of
one million tonnes of gar-
bage per year.
Of that amount, a portion
is placed in landfills such as
Burns Bog and some of it is
processed at the Burnaby
incinerator.
For too many years the
remaining several hundred
tonnes has been trucked via
transfer stations to the huge
Ashcroft landfill.
The enormous environ-
mental cost of trucking gar-
bage several hundred miles
to the interior is becom-
ing unacceptable and must
eventually be eliminated.
The waste stream in every
jurisdiction is constantly be-
ing reduced to meet emerg-
ing modern standards, but
there is an ongoing need to
find an acceptable method
of disposing of the remain-
ing garbage we all generate.
Modern methods of incin-
eration provide an accept-
able alternative to landfills,
but it is waste reduction, not
waste elimination. We must
all continue to strive to re-
duce the amount of garbage
we produce.
Having said that, the
Burnaby incinerator is con-
stantly monitored to ensure
adherence to strict emission
guidelines and the power
generated is sold to nearby
industries.
The plant has been in op-
eration for more than 20
years and has yet to cause
any issues in regards to air
quality standards.
Incineration is not cheap
and that is why the best
location for an incinerator
would be where there is ad-
jacent industries which can
use the power generated
and not in some remote area
where no cost recovery can
be achieved.
As well, the ash from in-
cineration can be contained
with little or no threat to the
environment.
It is time for FVRD officials
to take a more reasoned and
informed approach to this
matter.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Bending is not breaking
rules. (Letters, July 20)..
Coun. Al Hogarth should
be applauded for his long-
standing commitment and
service to our community.
While serving multiple
terms on council, he has
provided a level of expertise
and knowledge that the Dis-
trict of Maple Ridge could
not begin to hire for the
salary a council member is
paid.
L.A. Graves stated that
“realtors should not be al-
lowed to act as politicians in
their local community.”
Mr. Hogarth was a realtor
long before he was elected
to council and in all likeli-
hood his political life costs
him far more monetarily
than it will ever earn him.
Did it occur to anyone that
perhaps Mr. Hogarth was
hired to market the Urban
Green project because the
developer felt his expertise
and experience as a realtor
would provide the project
its best opportunity of suc-
cess?
I am at a loss as to how Mr.
Hogarth’s support of this
project, through the munici-
pal approval process, can be
construed as a conflict of
interest. The council deci-
sion to approve this project
was made long before his
involvement and obviously
he was not the only member
of council to vote their sup-
port. After all, it does take a
majority vote to gain coun-
cil approval.
Mr. Hogarth’s chosen pro-
fession is real estate. How
can we, as a community, ask
him not to perform the very
function that provides a liv-
ing for him and his family?
Operating a successful
real estate business is time
consuming enough, add the
time commitment that ac-
companies his role as coun-
cillor and it is far beyond
what most of us are capable
of.

Re: 10% HST cheaper than PST, study finds (mapleridgenews.com, July 28).
Not one person I have talked to has said that they are paying less in tax now
with the HST. Even with a two per cent reduction in tax, we will still be paying
more because there are no more exemptions like we had with the PST and all
services now have PST added that was not before. It will matter little that the
rate of these new taxes is reduced by two per cent. As for businesses passing
along “savings”to consumers, I’ll believe that when I see it. The increases in
fuel costs and taxes have eaten up anything business may have saved due to
the input tax credits, so what’s left for them to pass along to the con-
sumer? Even so, I have to admit that I was leaning towards voting no in the
referendum, that was until our own premier would not defend nor allow her
ministers to defend the HST in public debate. Pretty sad when you consider it
is her own party trying to ram the tax down our throats.

Re: Farmland being dumped on (The News, July 22).
This is sickening. It really is. With so many people fighting to protect agricultural
land, it seems incredible that this should be allowed. I’m glad that the paper has
picked up on this story and I hope that the publicity will force politicians to get to
work solving this problem.
The dikes are fantastic assets for Pitt Meadows and
Maple Ridge, great for doing a weekend ride. But how can
we get more people on their bikes for transportation, so
that we can experience the same joys and benefits that
cycling offers as the Dutch do?
Should we follow Seville’s example: learn from the Dutch,
and start building the kind of cycling infrastructure that
would entice granny to bike to the store, and even more
importantly, the kind that would allow our kids to safely
bike to school?

SPOTLIGHT ON: Road Construction Projects
ENGAGED: Hot Summer Nights
River Road & Shady Lane
projects get underway
after the long weekend
People joke about there being two seasons on the
prairies, winter and road construction season, but here
in Maple Ridge we’ve got a couple of major projects that
will be going into the ground starting on August 2.
The first is the final completion of the River Road storm
water project. The storm water system is now completely
finished and the cross connections have been made to
all of the residences along the section from Carshill to
Darby Street. The only thing left is to do the final repair
and paving of the road to eliminate the bumps that area
residents have endured for a number of months. Over
the month of August the work will require restricting
traffic to single lane alternating, and temporary road
closure may be required. Local traffic, emergency
vehicles and buses will only be permitted. Regular hours
of work are from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday to Friday
for a total duration of approximately four weeks. Every
effort will be made to minimize inconvenience to the
public, but traffic delays are expected. Please obey
construction signs and flag persons at the work zone.
The second project involves the installation of a storm
water system and a new multi-use sidewalk on 124
Avenue between Laity and 216 Streets. This road has
some magnificent heritage trees, and the design of the
project was done in consultation with the District Arborist
to ensure that trees and root systems were protected as
part of the construction planning. Only one tree, near the
intersection of 124 Avenue and Laity Street will be removed.
As the construction starts, the road will only be open to
construction vehicles, local residents and emergency
vehicles. There will be on-site traffic management
throughout the construction phase. Area residents who
use this popular east-west road are asked to look at
alternative routes until the expected completion date at
the end of September. The District and the contractor
doing the work will work closely with the neigbourhood to
minimize any inconvenience to the public. Information on
both projects can be accessed at mapleridge.ca through
a link on the What’s New section on the Home page.

Pitt Meadows resi-
dents concerned
about noise and drain-
age issues associated
with the Golden Ears
Bridge will have to
take on TransLink by
themselves after the
City of Pitt Meadows
opted not to form its
own committee to ad-
dress residents’ con-
cerns.
Pitt Meadows coun-
cil instructed staff
last month to look into
holding a stakehold-
ers meeting as an ave-
nue to bring residents’
ongoing concerns to
TransLink.
However, Pitt Mead-
ows Mayor Don Ma-
cLean said it’s not the
City of Pitt Meadows’
responsibility to make
such a move.
“The bridge is owned
by TransLink, and it
is located in Maple
Ridge,” MacLean said
at last Tuesday’s Pitt
Meadows council
in committee meet-
ing. “Our staff are
stretched a mile wide
and an inch deep as it
is.”
MacLean instead
encouraged residents
to take part in Trans-
Link’s newly formed
community action
group.
In an email sent to
area residents, Trans-
Link states the group
will “give the com-
munity a chance to
work with TransLink
and City of Pitt Mead-
ows staff over the
upcoming months to
continue addressing
concerns relating to
noise generated by us-
ers of the Golden Ears
Bridge.”
Mike Stark is one of
dozens of residents
on Wildwood Crescent
who have been fight-
ing with TransLink
since the bridge was
first proposed. He said
without the formal
representation of the
city, the concerns of
residents are likely to
be ignored by Trans-
Link.
“We have tried to get
the City of Pitt Mead-
ows to step up and
take responsibility
... and they are duck-
ing it,” Stark said.
“It should not be up
to citizens to take on
TransLink, TransLink
is a behemoth.”
Stark is concerned
the city will ultimately
sign off on the bridge
construction work
without the noise and
drainage issues being
addressed.
“The work is sup-
posed to be done to
Pitt Meadows’ satisfac-
tion,” Stark. “So clear-
ly they have an obliga-
tion to make sure this
work is done.”
Stark said he hopes
to see Pitt Meadows
councillors in atten-
dance at the com-
munity action group
meetings, in an offi-
cial capacity.
“We hoped [Pitt
Meadows] council
would chair the com-
mittee,” said Stark.
“They have an obliga-
tion to the citizens.”
Chief among resi-
dents’ concerns is the
noise wall which sepa-
rates traffic on the
bridge approach from
the residential com-
munity.
The noise wall isn’t
long enough or high
enough, Stark con-
tends.
“It’s only 10 feet high
here, and they say it
can’t go any higher,”
he said. “But the one
on Lougheed Highway
is 12 feet high.”
TransLink recently
installed cloth-like
inserts to reduce
noise caused by ve-
hicles driving over the
bridge’s expansion
joints.
Work on the remain-
ing joints will be com-
plete by early August.
However, TransLink
said last month it
won’t be pursuing any
upgrades to the exist-
ing noise walls.
One family on the
street recently had to
pay $12,000 for triple-
glazed windows as a
result of the noise,
Stark said.
“There’s been a lot
of for-sale signs up,
all up and down the
street,” he said. “Peo-
ple are tired of it.”
City won’t form bridge noise committee
Residents fear
ongoing concerns
will be ignored

In B.C., residents of
reserves can vote in
municipal elections
and referendums
when the land is lo-
cated within munici-
pal boundaries even
though their areas fall
outside the regulation
and taxation authority
of local government.
“What’s happened
in recent years is the
federal government
has brought forward
new legislation to fos-
ter economic develop-
ment on reserves,”
explained Drew, who
is the mayor of Bel-
carra.
“We support that
legislation, but what
it did, it shone a big
light on what the im-
plications for local
governments are.”
He points to the
Squamish Nation’s
2004 Capilano Plan,
which features varia-
tions of high-density
residential develop-
ment on reserve land
between Park Royal
South and Ambleside
Park in West Vancou-
ver.
In the next 25 to 35
years, the Squamish
Nation plans to build
about 12,000 condo-
miniums, townhouses
and commercial units
on it.
The development
could add 25,000 peo-
ple the reserve in
West Vancouver.
“To put that in per-
spective, that’s the
size of the City of Port
Moody,” said Drew.
The proportion of
residents living on-
reserve and eligible
to vote in District of
West Vancouver could
increase up to 30 per
cent within 25 years.
“They would be de-
termining budgets
and service levels and
everything else for
which they don’t pay
for,” Drew added.
Pitt Meadows Coun.
Doug Bing, who rep-
resents the city on
the treaty committee,
also believes the in-
crease in on-reserve
populations is a grow-
ing trend that could
cause possible future
problems for munici-
palities.
Katzie First Nation
Reserve 1, located
within Pitt Meadows,
had a population of
246 in the last census,
conducted in 2006.
The city is currently
negotiating an agree-
ment with the band to
supply water, sewer
disposal and fire pro-
tection services to it.
“It’s silly to wait un-
til the problem hap-
pens and then try to
fix it,” said Bing.
“If we know this is a
trend and a problem
that could happen, it
makes sense to have
this discussion now
and see if we can work
out some solution that
will avoid confronta-
tion down the road.”
In Maple Ridge, the
Kwantlen First Na-
tion revealed plans
last year for its land
along Lougheed
Highway, including
a 290,000-square-foot
mall and housing de-
velopment.
Coun. Craig Speirs,
the district’s repre-
sentative on the trea-
ty committee, doesn’t
have a problem with
people on reserves
voting in civic elec-
tions, but would like
to see non-Aboriginals
who live on First Na-
tions land be granted
rights to vote for band
councils.
“It will even the
playing field,” Speirs
said.
“I don’t think mu-
nicipalities have any-
thing to worry about.
It is also an excellent
demonstration of in-
clusion and, to me,
that’s more important
than anything else.”
The Katzie and
Kwantlen First Na-
tions did not return
calls for comment.

It’s just a few simple
pieces of concrete, but
for Maple Ridge father
Al Robbie and the other
residents of Hill Avenue,
the temporary traffic
barrier helps keep their
kids safe and brings life
to their quiet subdivi-
sion.
The District of Maple
Ridge wants the jersey
barriers gone, though,
and that means what was
one a dead-end street
will become a thorough-
fare for rat-running com-
muters.
When Robbie and the
other residents of Hill
Avenue moved into the
Creeks Crossing subdivi-
sion seven years ago, the
road was a dead end.
However, the road
now continues through
the neighbourhood, con-
necting Hill Avenue to
the Mainstone Creek
subdivision and 102nd
Avenue.
The barrier has been
in place for the past two
years while the adjacent
subdivision was being
constructed. Now that
those homes are nearly
completed, the district
plans to remove the
barrier and repave the
stretch of road, some-
thing many residents in
area don’t want to see.
“It’s like a cul-de-sac,”
says Robbie. “The kids
play hockey here, and
you don’t have to worry
about the traffic.”
More than 150 people
came out to a block par-
ty Robbie organized last
weekend in support of
keeping the barrier.
“We wouldn’t be able
to this with the barrier
gone,” he said.
The problem is impa-
tient drivers who cut
through the residential
neighbourhood to 102nd
Avenue in order to avoid
traffic on 240th Street.
Robbie said he once wit-
nessed a jeep drive up
onto the sidewalk, cut-
ting through an adjacent
vacant lot, to get around
the barrier.
Residents in the area
begun circulating a peti-
tion asking Maple Ridge
to consider keeping the
barriers in place, and
have also requested
speed bumps be installed
in the area to slow traf-
fic.
However, Michael Eng,
the District of Maple
Ridge’s traffic technolo-
gist, says the jersey bar-
riers have to go to allow
traffic to flow through
the neighbourhood.
“We have to offer resi-
dents options to get in an
out of their neighbour-
hood,” he said.
Speed bumps could
cause more harm than
good, he notes.
“What we’ve heard
from our emergency
services is that they ad-
versely affect response
times,” Eng said. “More
so with ambulance ser-
vice.”
In order to slow traf-
fic through the area,
Eng said the district has
narrowed Hill Avenue.
“Making roads narrow-
er changes driver be-
haviour, and they slow
down,” he said.
However, the speed lim-
it will remain at 50 km/h,
and Robbie is concerned
the narrow streets will
actually make it more
dangerous, as cars will
have less space to ma-
neuver.
Eng said the district
plans to meet with resi-
dents to address their
concerns, but no date for
such a meeting has yet
been set. “We’d like to
discuss options and ex-
change ideas,” he said.

A Maple Ridge fam-
ily is reeling emotion-
ally and financially after
their dog was viciously
attacked by another dog
at Cliff Park Monday
evening.
Teresa Murrell lives
on 251st Street next to
the park. Her 14 year-old
daughter and 12-year-
old son were walking the
dog Monday night when
the attack happened.
According to Murrell,
the kids had just taken
Buddy, a black Bichon
Frise-Havanese cross
weighing of 15 pounds,
off his leash to play ball
next to the baseball
fields when a young
couple walking a Labra-
dor-cross and a German
shepherd-cross, both
off-leash, came out of the
Cliff Park hiking trail at
the opposite end of the
field.
The light-coloured Lab-
rador-cross tore across
the field towards Buddy,
grabbing the small dog
by the neck and shaking
it violently, before toss-
ing it in the air like a toy.
After repeatedly bit-
ing Buddy, the other
dog loosened its grip
on Buddy’s neck for an
instant, allowing him to
break free and run home
as the children chased
after him.
Murrell was standing
in her driveway when
Buddy came racing
home, covered in blood,
shaking with fear.
“Buddy was a mess,”
said Murrell. “I was sick
to my stomach, and the
kids are just trauma-
tized. They came home
in tears after witnessing
that.”
Murrell’s husband ran
back to the park to catch
up with the other dogs’
owners, but they were
already gone.
Murrell says her moth-
er, who owns the dog,
was heartbroken to see
the state Buddy was in.
“She’s battling cancer
right now, and Buddy
is like her best friend,”
Murrell said. “She was
bawling her eyes out
when she saw him.”
Buddy spent three
nights at the vet before
returning home to fam-
ily Thursday morning.
So far, the family has
$1,300 on vet bills, and
that total continues to
climb.
“He’s not out of the
woods yet,” Murrell said.
Buddy is still at risk from
infection from the many
puncture wounds on his
neck and back.
Murrell has put up
posters around the park
asking for information
about the owners of the
dog, and hopes they will
come forward and do the
right thing.
“I would like them to
pay for the vet bills and
muzzle that dog,” said
Murrell. “It should prob-
ably be put down if its
that violent.”
Murrell said the young
couple who owned the
Labrador-cross were a
tall, thin blonde woman,
and a fit man with short
brown hair. The dog
that attacked Buddy an-
swered to the name of
Angel.
Although the park is
not an off-leash area,
Murrell said it wouldn’t
have made a difference
if Buddy was on his
leash.
“The kids said the
other dog came straight
for him,” she said. “He
didn’t stand a chance.”
After being nearly
torn to shreds, Murrell’s
afraid Buddy won’t be
his usual, friendly self.
“He’s been so timid
since the attack,” she
said. “I just hope it
doesn’t change him.”
Murrell says she plans
to file a report with the
police about the inci-
dent.
“These people need to
take responsibility for
their dog,” she said.
Anyone who may have
any information about
the attack can reach
Murrell at 604-831-4683.

Betting men and women can
try their odds at winning a 2011
Jeep at the Meadow Ridge Rota-
ry Club’s first annual duck race
this Sunday.
Local businesses donated more
than $35,000 in prizes for the
first nine rubber ducks to cross
the finish line.
The jeep, donated by Maple
Ridge Chrysler, goes to the win-
ner.
“We’ve had a great response
from the community,” said
Mary Robson, who sits on the
organization committee. “It’s
a fun campaign to be involved
with. Everybody loves a rubber
duck.”
The money raised from the
duck race helps fund the Maple
Ridge-Pitt Meadows chapter of
Kidsport, a charitable organi-
zation that helps offset sports
registration costs for children of
families with financial barriers.
At 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon,
a sea of bobbing yellow rub-
ber ducks will encroach on a
300-metre stretch of the Alou-
ette River, propelled forward by
the current. A member from the
RCMP dive team will be on site
to rescue ducks that get stuck en
route.
“So there won’t be any ducks
stranded in the river,” said Rob-
son. “We’re very excited for it.”
The day begins at 10 a.m. with
a Kiwanis Club pancake break-
fast. Besides the main event, fun-
for-the-family entertainment
such as clowns, face-painting, a
live duck display, and a bouncy
castle will fill the Maple Ridge
Park.
People looking to race a duck
can “adopt” one for $10. They’ll
receive a numbered ticket that
corresponds to the numbered
ducks. The ducks will be avail-
able for purchase until race
time.
Holland America Line donated
a one week luxury cruise for two
as second prize.

Proceeds
from the
sale of
each rub-
ber duck,
$10 each,
go to the

Meadows
chapter of

N
ot long after I arrived to
help my parents, I sat
with my dad in a hospital
waiting room, awaiting some
results from blood work.
He expressed some exas-
peration at the fact that the
doctors couldn’t just “fix the
problem” he has without
having to go through so much
testing.
Clearly, he was tired of being
a pin-cushion for the vari-
ous needles necessary to get
blood for testing every time he
turned around. Both his arms,
from his elbows to his wrists
were black and blue from the
bruising of blood tests.
Because he does not under-
stand much medical terminol-
ogy, nor for that matter do I,
I tried to explain his situation
to him using a metaphor he
could more easily grasp. I told
him that he was like an older
car. One part might be going,
but there is rust all over the
place and there are a lot of
things that are contributing
to the fact that the car isn’t
running as well as it did when
it was new, or at least on war-
ranty.
That metaphor, he under-
stood completely. After all, he
had an old truck in the drive-
way that he hadn’t been able
to drive for several months.
Part of it was that he
couldn’t drive it anymore,
safely, so it had been sitting
around for some time and
parts have
seized up.
And part
of it was
that it was
an old truck
and every
time he took
it in, the
mechanic
looked
underneath
it, shook
his head,
and my fad
knew there
was a big bill coming for nu-
merous parts that were neces-
sary to get it going again.
The warranty on human
health is never a sure thing,
although statistically, young
people are a lot healthier than
the elderly.
But when young people get
sick, it’s generally one issue
that needs to be dealt with
and, once diagnosed, can usu-
ally be treated easily.
For the elderly, a doctor
must deal with a jigsaw puzzle
of conditions and possible
medications to attempt to get
just the right combination to
make the quality of life the
best it can be.
Rarely is it easy or quick to
do so.
While we all recognize that
sickness is an inevitable part
of living, our expectation is
that it is a temporary thing. If
we just hunker down and take
care of ourselves for awhile,
things will get better.
For many elderly, that’s
just not the case, and at
some point, they come to the
realization that it might be as
good today as it’s ever going
to get.
The optimist lives each day
with gratitude for the health
he or she has and the pessi-
mist lives in fear of the future.
When we got home from
the hospital that day, my dad
looked at the old truck and
asked me if I thought I could
fix it. Auto mechanics isn’t
exactly my specialty, but I
recognized, in a moment, that
he was taking the metaphor
to the next level of his own
psychological well-being.
To make a long story short, I
can now replace an alternator,
belt tensioner and serpentine
belt in a 12-year-old Ford 150
and get it to run.
Ever since I drove the truck
out of the driveway, my dad
has been feeling a bit better.
Now he wants me to get his
boat, the one that’s been sit-
ting idle for two years, in the
water and running.
I need to think my meta-
phors through a bit more care-
fully before I shoot my mouth
off in the future.

S
ome things just
belong together
– pancakes and
bacon, little kids and
puddles, old movies
and popcorn – to name
just a few.
By the same token,
certain things should
never be combined.
Just as there are
people who like peanut
butter and honey,
people devoid of taste
buds, there are also
those who think that
purple and red are great colour compan-
ions.
Of course, most of us know better, or at
least we have learned from our mistakes.
But for the benefit of those still strug-
gling with colour and form in your
gardens, I thought I would touch base on
using foliage and flowers to bring contrast
and breathe a little life into your other-
wise ‘peanut butter and honey’ landscape,
and while there are no hard and fast rules,
general guidelines are always helpful.
Black-leaved plants such as Colocasia
‘Black Magic’ and Ophiopogon ‘Nigre-
scens’ (black mondo grass) require the
high contrast of gold flowers or foliage
in order to silhouette their dark form,
otherwise they tend to just fade into a
background of dark topsoil.
Burgundy has a similar effect of enhanc-
ing surrounding flowers or foliar colours,
or in the case of a monochrome green
garden, it serves to add visual interest. It
is particularly effective when repeated in
groups of three to five (shrubs, perennials
or small trees of the same colour), helping
to draw attention from one part of the
garden to another.
If you are a little unsure about your
choice of colours, there are a few safe bets
as far as hues are concerned – white, pale
yellow and soft blues usually fit into most
colour schemes without offending the eye.
As far as specific plants are concerned,
here are eight flowering or foliar shrubs
and perennials that you can use to add a
little zing to your garden.
• Coreopsis verticillata (Zone 4):
threadleaf coreopsis is an indispensable
blending perennial for two reasons – its
fine-textured foliage doesn’t overwhelm
adjacent plants and it is a reliable, long-
lived plant. The abundant pale yellow
daisy blooms of ‘Moonbeam’ make it a
universal companion perennial, while the
deep yellow flowers of ‘Zagreb’ work well
with brighter colour tones.
• Physocarpus opulifolius (Zone 4):
ninebark gets it common name from its
shredded or exfoliating bark, but it’s the
foliar colours that really make it stand
out. This deciduous shrub comes in many
worthy cultivars – including ‘Diabolo’
(deep chocolate-purple), ‘Dart’s Gold’
(chartreuse with orange autumn tones),
‘Summer Wine’ (wine red) and ‘Center
Glow’ (gold centers on new growth,
maturing to deep burgundy) – all of which
can be pruned to size.
• Leucanthemum ‘Broadway Lights’
(Zone 4): most people avoid Shasta daisies
because they require staking and only
provide a standard white daisy bloom.
Enter ‘Broadway Lights’, a newer cultivar
with flowers that start out lemon yellow,
shift to cream, then fade to a pure white,
often showing all three tones simultane-
ously. Final height is 60 centimetres, with
rigid stems, so you also don’t have to
worry about staking.
• Fragaria vesca ‘Golden Alexandria’
(Zone 5): this golden-leaved alpine straw-
berry is the perfect edging plant because
it grows to a uniform 30 cm-wide mound
with no messy runners. The fruit is
smaller-sized but packed with a delicious
strawberry/bubblegum flavour that the
kids will love, and it is also everbearing.
• Abies balsamea ‘Nana’ (Zone 3): sure,
green goes with everything, but what
makes this soft-needled dwarf conifer so
special is that you’ll probably never have
to prune it. The spring flush is a bright
lime green and it matures at 60 cm tall
and 90cm wide over many years.
• Heuchera ‘Blackcurrant’ (Zone 4): this
deep burgundy heuchera is a true bullet-
proof model – as it is reliably evergreen,
sun tolerant, has good vigour and is not
prone to fungal rust. The ruffled foliage
is accented with pewter on top with a
purple reverse, and it is ideal in planters
(pairs well with Sedum ‘Angelina’) or as a
foreground border accent.
• Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina’ (Zone 3):
a tough matt-forming evergreen sedum
with bright yellow needle-like foliage that
picks up orange highlights in winter. It is
drought tolerant, good in containers and
low-growing (to 15 cm) – so it practically
fits anywhere in the sun and makes a
great contrast to black and burgundy.
• Berberis thunbergii (Zone 4): the
Japanese barberries are a versatile group
of deciduous shrubs whose thorns put
them on that ever-important deer-proof
list. Dwarf cultivars (‘Crimson Pygmy’,
‘Royal Burgundy’) are available, although
standard varieties such as ‘Rose Glow’
(burgundy with pink veins), ‘Sunsation’
(lime green to gold) and ‘Cherry Bomb’
(deep crimson) look best with some prun-
ing. For an impressive but low mainte-
nance display, try just inter-planting the
gold and burgundy cultivars.

COMMERCIAL HERITAGE BUILDING
24 -- Friday, July 29, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
by Kerry Vital
You won’t fnd a much more
exclusive community than ParkLane’s
Te Views at Heritage Woods. With
just fve townhomes available, Te
Views is a true example of great value
for a lower price point.
“Te Views ofers the very rare
opportunity to own a brand-new home
in an already established community,”
says ParkLane General Manager of
Sales and Marketing Yosh Kasahara.
Te development is set in the heart of
ParkLane’s master-planned community
of Heritage Woods on Heritage
Mountain in Port Moody. With over 15
other single-family and multi-family
projects at the development, Te Views
is right at home with previous projects
like Echo Ridge and Creekside, among
others. ParkLane has won several
awards for Heritage Woods, including
more than 30 Georgie Awards given
out by the Canadian Home Builders’
Association of British Columbia.
Te homes come standard as a
two-bedroom and lof, but Kasahara
says they can be converted to a three-
bedroom for no extra charge.
Every home features a great room-
style layout with a nine-foot ceiling,
adding to the sense of spaciousness
that comes standard at Te Views. In
the kitchen, owners will no doubt be
quickly taking advantage of the large
workspaces, islands and pantries that
are so perfectly situated it’s as if the
builders read your mind. Maple shaker-
style cabinets complement the stone-
slab counters, and a high-end stainless-
steel appliance package will have you
cooking up a delicious meal in minutes.
At the end of the day, everyone wants
to kick of their shoes and relax. Te
master bedrooms at Te Views have
been built for this, with lush carpeting,
private balconies, huge walk-in closets
and an ensuite featuring his-and-hers
sinks and a separate soaker tub.
Te bottom foor features a fully
fnished recreation room, perfect for
turning into a media room or home
theatre, and double garage.
One of the biggest selling points at
Te Views is, obviously, the stunning
views. “You can see everything from
Mount Baker to the Gulf Islands from
this community,” Kasahara says.
Buyers who are planning to work
from home will fnd it easy at Te
Views, as the townhomes are zoned
for a live/work space, according to
Kasahara.
All fve homes are completed and
ready to move in to, Kasahara says. “We
have been overwhelmed with phone
calls and visits to our open houses by
people who are interested in purchasing
here ... people don’t want to miss out.”
Te townhomes at Te Views at
Heritage Woods are 1,793 or 1,798
square feet, and start at $569,900. To
make an appointment to see the homes,
visit theviews.parklane.com or call
604-961-3559.

Central RE/MAX realtor Jenny Wun enjoys the living room at ParkLane’s The Views at Heritage Woods. Every detail has been thought out at the
development, including lush carpeting in the master bedroom (left top), natural landscaping (left) and generous workspaces in the kitchen (top.)
Heritage Woods
welcomes The Views
‘We have been overwhelmed with phone calls and visits to our open houses’
Smooth buying experience the norm in Lower Mainland
Home-buying doesn’t need to be stressful
Everyone has heard horror stories about
buying a new home. Homes not being fnished
on time. Salespeople looking down their nose
at you when you don’t decide to install those
hardwood foors. And of course, the worry
that it won’t live up to your expectations.
Tose nightmares are rarely a reality in the
Lower Mainland, with its range of wonderful
builders, all of whom are committed to
providing a smooth, seamless buying
experience for every single customer.
“Tere were no problems with the buying
process,” says Kseniya Stepanova. “It was
quick and smooth.” Stepanova and partner
Arseniy Tkachuk purchased a home in
Vancouver’s Maynards Block, a project built
by Aquilini Development and Construction.
Teir home is still being built, but Stepanova
was impressed by the fexibility. “We have
actually changed our mind in the process and
moved up two foors, so we had to come back
a second time – all was good.”
South of the Fraser River, Corina Accili
had a fantastic experience with Benchmark
Homes, the builders of the Yorkson South
development. “Benchmark was wonderful to
work with,” she says. “Everything has been
painless.”
She was particularly impressed by the staf
at Benchmark, saying that everyone from the
sales staf to the project manager have been
great.
Buying a home can be stressful (even when
it’s good stress), but perhaps the experiences
of Accili, Stepanova and Tkachuk will turn
those nightmares to dust.


The Views
offers a
very rare
opportunity to own a brand-
new home in an already
established community,” says
General Manager of Sales and
Marketing Yosh Kasahara.

A
s our Aug.
1 public
holiday ap-
proaches, most of
us will be thinking
more of how to en-
joy it rather than
why we have it.
But I found it
interesting to learn
why we do have a
day off in August
and not in Febru-
ary, March or June
– the other months
with no holidays
(unless Easter is in March, not April).
Weather could be one reason, though
this year, who knows?
But that’s not the only reason.
In 1974, a Member of Parliament said:
“We feel that B.C., like every other
provinces, could benefit, and should
have a holiday around August 1st,” and
in 1996, the British Columbia Day Act
finally was officially enacted.
Coincidentally, the United Kingdom
Act of Parliament that created the colo-
ny and government of British Columbia
was passed Aug. 2nd, 1858, so the date
of our celebration is an apt one.
The name was chosen by Queen
Victoria, who gave her own name later
to the capital. For the colony itself , she
used the existing ‘Columbia District,’
the name the British had for the upper
regions of the territory drained by the
Columbia River.
The ‘British’ part of the name
distinguished us from the ‘American
Columbia’, or ‘Oregon Territory,’ as
that later became.
Between the founding of British
Columbia and the eventual adoption of
the first Monday in August as a public
holiday, a great deal of pioneering
took place, and that is exactly what the
legislature wanted to celebrate – not to
mention the millennia of First Nations’
habitation that preceded the arrival of
first the Europeans, and later immi-
grants from all over the world.
In those early days, half the aborigi-
nal peoples of present day Canada lived
in the Pacific Northwest, on the coast
and inland.
We all recognize the well-known
names that followed: Captain James
Cook, whose voyages along this coast
established British jurisdiction here; Sir
Alexander Mackenzie, whose first (Eu-
ropean) journey across North America
finished in Bella Coola; Simon Fraser,
who gave his name to our mighty river;
David Thompson, and many others.
But had the Spanish and Russian
explorers and would-be colonists who
also plied these coasts (see all their
names on maps) taken over, we would
never have been British Columbia, and
maybe not had this holiday.
And who knows how we would have
developed without the early arrival and
activities of the Hudson Bay Company,
the originator of the fur trade and
subsequent exploration?
In 1878, B.C. became the sixth prov-
ince to join Confederation and was
promised that the Canadian Pacific
Railway would push through the Rock-
ies to the coast. That happened in 1885,
at which point British Columbians
became truly part of Canada.

Maple Ridge Historical Society.
Why do we have a B.C. Day?

A
s the baby brother in a blended
family of eight kids, I was either
picked on or ignored growing
up. My siblings, to this day, think that I
was the spoiled one, but that’s not how I
remembered it.
The novelty of parenting had worn off
long before I came along, so the only
time I spent with my parents was help-
ing them with work around the house.
The same was true in hanging out
with my brothers and sisters, and they
were only too happy to pawn off their
chores on little brother. There was little
effort put into building my self-esteem,
but I did develop a great work ethic.
I actually grew up in a healthy, happy
home and my self-esteem is fine. Oth-
ers are not so fortunate. That sense of
security and identity is just not there in
the many dysfunctional families we see
today.
The Bible says that real love “is not
jealous or boastful or proud or rude” (1
Cor. 13:4,5). Notice the contrast. A lov-
ing, well-rounded person is not jealous
or boastful, neither insecure nor arro-
gant. In an effort to make children feel
better about themselves, parents today
tend to praise them about everything
and seldom bring correction – they just
don’t want to crush them.
Even our public schools are dis-
mantling competition so children can
progress at their own pace and not feel
inferior to their classmates. As a college
instructor, I see the impediment caused
by this over-protective and over-indul-
gent approach – my students wilt and
often drop out when they receive any
negative feedback. They just don’t seem
prepared for the harsh realities of life.
The Bible says: “Do nothing out of
selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in
humility consider [esteem] others bet-
ter than yourselves. Each of you should
look not only to your own interests, but
also to the interests of others” (Phil.
2:3,4).
Parents can help their children de-
velop a healthy self image by teaching
them that every person is designed by
God, and unique, special, and gifted in
some way. Balance can be achieved by
combining praise for good character,
with loving correction, especially in the
way we respect other people.
Healthy self-esteem comes from an
emphasis on loving our neighbor as
much as we tend to love ourselves (Mat.
22:39).
Rob Buzza is lead pastor at
NorthRidge Church.
Healthy self-esteem comes from loving our neighbours

James Reimer of the Toronto Maple Leafs has called Maple Ridge home for the past three off-seasons.
Reimer spends the training at the Fitlife Centre for Health and Performance with fellow NHLers Andrew
Ladd and Brandon Yip
Non-contact hockey coming to Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey
Reimer uses faith to stay grounded
I
t’s a long way from Morweena, Mani-
toba, to the bright lights of Toronto,
but for Maple Leafs goaltender
James Reimer staying grounded amidst
the intense pressure of the NHL is a
matter of faith.
“To me, my faith is everything,” says
Reimer, who was brought up in the Men-
nonite religion on a tiny prairie farm
town tucked in between Lake Winnipeg
and Lake Manitoba.
“They love their Leafs in Toronto, but
you have to stay focussed,” he says.
For that he relies on his faith to keep
him humble and give him strength.
“He helps me through the times when
I feel I may not be strong enough,” Re-
imer says. Whenever he
finds himself in a tough
situation, Reimer draws
on that higher power to
see him through.
Reimer says it’s impor-
tant to do everything he
can with the ability god
has given him.
“It’s a gift,” he says. “And
he can take it away from
me any second.”
To that end, Reimer has
spent the last three off-sea-
sons training at the Fitlife
Centre for Health and Performance in
Maple Ridge with trainer Adam Fran-
cilia and fellow NHLers Andrew Ladd
and Brandon Yip, after marrying Maple
Ridge’s April Dalman.
“I like it here,” Reimer says. “It’s laid
back compared to Toronto.”
Reimer comes by his appreciation for
a slower pace of life honestly. His home-
town of Morweena has a population of
just 150 people.
“But the main reason I keep coming
back to Maple Ridge is Fitlife,” he says.
“The work you do in the off season is
huge, it helps you perform at a high lev-
el for longer.”
Not surprisingly, since Reimer stepped
up his off-season training regimen, his
star has risen, and his play has improved
dramatically.
Training partner Victor Bartley, who
recently inked an NHL deal with the
Nashville Predators, says Reimer is one
of the fittest goalies he’s ever seen.
Reimer posted a modest record of 41-
46-14 after three seasons with the Red
Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey
League. Reimer was drafter in the fourth
round by the Maple Leafs in 2006, and in
2008 was shipped to the Reading Royals
of the East Coast Hockey League after a
promising NHL prospects camp.
“I thought I was good enough to play
in the AHL, so it was hard to have to go
down to the ECHL,” he says.
Again, he says his faith helped him
keep focussed
“Sometimes you’re so close, but you
feel so far away,” he says. “But I knew He
had plan, I just needed to be patient.”
It turned out the stint in the ECHL
was the right move for him, he admits
now. Instead seeing limited icetime as
a back-up in the AHL, Reimer was able
to further develop as a starter, posting a
16-7-3 record.
Next training camp, he stuck with the
Toronto Marlies, the Maple Leaf’s Amer-
ican Hockey League affiliate.
In parts of three seasons with the
Marlies, Reimer posted a 24-15-3 re-
cord, and in January of this year his big
break came when Maple
Leaf coach Ron Wilson
opted to start Reimer in
net over Jonas Gustavs-
son against the Ottawa
Senators.
“That was the most ner-
vous I’ve ever been,” he
says. “Before the game, all
I could think was, what if
things go bad, and it’s not
your fault.”
But the second the puck
dropped, any mental dis-
tractions he may have had
evaporated.
Reimer credits his conditioning with
enabling him to take advantage of the
opportunity.
“You might only get those opportuni-
ties once in a lifetime, so you have to be
ready,” he says. “If your body is broken
down by January, you’re going to miss
out.
Reimer got the win in convincing fash-
ion, as the Leafs won 5-1.
“We were in Ottawa, so it was prac-
tically a home game,” he says. “It was
pretty amazing.”
Reimer managed a 20-10-5 record with
the Leafs over the remainder of the
season, providing one of the few bright
spots for Maple Leafs fans as the team
failed to make the playoffs for the sixth
consecutive season.
This season, Reimer is determined to
take the team to the postseason.
“My goal is to have a good camp and
get the starting position,” he says. “I
want to do the most I can with the gift
He has given me.”

As concern grows in the NHL over the
prevalence of head injuries and serious
concussions, the Ridge Meadows Minor
Hockey Association is looking at offering
non-contact teams for the upcoming sea-
son.
RMMHA president Glen Mund said the
new league would offer parents more
hockey options for their children.
RMMHA recently survey parents about
interest in non-contact teams and heard
back about 100 of them. Only 50 said they
were.
That would be enough for three or four
teams, although the concept of regional
teams has also been discussed.
The Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey As-
sociation, to which RMMHA belongs, al-
ready has non-contact leagues, but until
now has offered none in the Fraser Val-
ley.
Ontario has recently made all C Leagues
non-contact, while Quebec has offered
non-contact hockey for years.
“Hockey Canada recently conducted
studies which inidicate that the level of
injury in contact leagues is three-fold
that of non-contact leagues at the bantam
level,” said Mund. “They have also de-
termined that there is little difference in
injury levels at bantam when comparing
players coming from non-contact or con-
tact leagues in previous seasons.”
Hockey Canada high-performance
coaches have also indicated that playing
contact or non-contact at the younger age
groups has little impact on how a player
plays later in his hockey career, Mund
added.
“I think more and more players and par-
ents are more educated about the risks
and benefits of non contact and contact
hockey and want to at least have choices
available for their children,” he said.

we share. Memories do not fade
they just grow deeper and deeper
bringing many a silent tear every-
day.

Loved, remember and longed for
always. We hope friends are
enjoying the benches at the

One dream that could come true

Always willing to help others
We miss you Dad,

You were one of a kind.

7 OBITUARIES
KONESKY,
(formally Morsund)
Margaret Isabell
As was her way, she departed
her earthly home with grace,
to be received into the loving
arms of Jesus on July 22,
2011. She joins her first love
Knute, whom together they
shared many joys until his un-
timely death in April 1980.
Cherishing her memory are
son Alan and wife Leslee,
daughter and best friend
Diane and husband Mark
Humphries. She was a special
grandma to Carlee, Chris &
Jordan (Alicia). Although very
present in her life, her illness
prevented her to truly know
her great-granddaughter Madi-
son Humphries. She would
have been so proud. Margaret
will also be greeted in Heaven
by her second husband Gust.
His family she always consid-
ered an extension of her own.
She leaves dear cousins and
friends in Nova Scotia, Onta-
rio, Saskatchewan, B.C and
California. We know when
Jesus carried her through
Heaven’s gates, God reached
out his hand and said, ‘well
done, good and faithful daugh-
ter.’ It was always evident that
she lived her life in joyful ser-
vice to her Lord, her family
and her friends, and her sunny
disposition amidst a debilitat-
ing disease did not falter. In
fact, she continually showed
her true Christian self and
many were drawn to her
because of it. Her last earthly
home was Haney Lane, at
Baillie House, Maple Ridge.
We thank those special care-
givers and medical staff who
took the time to treat her in the
way every elderly person
should be, with patience and
kindness and most of all
dignity. Never complaining and
always content, she was true
to her sweet and loving nature
until the end.
A service to honor her life will
be held on Saturday, July 30,
3:00 PM at Grace Community
Church, 12220 Harris Road
Pitt Meadows.
Memorial gifts are gratefully
accepted to Katie’s Place ( a
non-profit society that rescues,
alters, adopts out homeless
cats) c/o 20803 Camwood
Avenue, Maple Ridge, B.C.
