Green Party gets lost
in the static. p6
NDP MLA Michael Sather will
be retiring from politics.
Sather, who has held the
seat for the Maple Ridge-Pitt
Meadows riding since 2005, an-
nounced Friday that he will not
run again, but will remain as
MLA until the next election.
I love the job, actually, and it
was a very, very difficult deci-
sion, he said.
I sweated about it a lot.
A passionate environmental-
ist, Sather is known in provin-
cial politics for standing by his
beliefs, even getting expelled
from the party caucus in 2007
for voting against the Tsawwas-
sen First Nation treaty because
it removed protection for more
than 200 hectares of farmland.
Sather was also among a group
of dissidents who opposed Car-
ole James leadership of the B.C.
NDP last fall.
He is im-
pressed with
the partys
new leader,
Adrian Dix,
praising his
ability to
build bridges.
He is a
bit of a risk
taker. I kind
of like that,
Sather said
of Dix.
If you are going to make a
mark in this world, youve got
to take a few risks. If you are
not willing to take risks, its
very difficult, in my mind, to be
creative and to adapt to current
realities. You have to have those
nimble skills, especially in poli-
tics.
Sather, who vied for position
as mayor of Maple Ridge in 2008,
has no plans to enter civic poli-
tics, either.
He intends to take six months
off after the next election and
reassess his life.
Will remain as MLA until
next provincial election

River runs yellow
A volunteer from the First Laity View Scout Group dumps rubber ducks into a corral at the start of the first Rotary Duck Race on the South Alouette River by
Maple Ridge Park on Sunday, when 7,000 ducks were sent down the river. Each one was sold to a sponsor, from which proceeds benefit local charities for youth.

Man stabbed,
woman
arrested
staff reporter
A woman was been arrested after
a man was stabbed at an intersec-
tion in downtown Maple Ridge ear-
ly Sunday.
Ridge Meadows RCMP were called
toabout a disturbance at Dewdney
Trunk Road and 222nd Street at
around 5:30 a.m., said Insp. David
Wendell.
They found a man suffering from
knife wounds. He was taken to
hospital, where he remains with
extremely serious but non-life-
threatening injuries, Wendell
said.
Police arrested a woman at the
scene. She could be charged with
assault with a weapon, at least,
Wendell added.
He said the man and woman were
well known to each other.
The intersection where the in-
cident occurred remained closed
Sunday morning while police in-
vestigated. Blood was evident on
the pavement and on plastic sheets
police were using.
RCMP ask anyone with informa-
tion about the knife incident to call
604-463-6251.

Its going to be easier to get through Pitt
Meadows and across the Pitt River Bridge now
that theres an extra lane to move you west.
The opening of the $20-million westbound
high occupancy lane will cut down trafc jams
and get motorists on to the Pitt River Bridge.
Bus riders heading to Coquitlam will get
even more of a break with the addition of bus
queue-jump lanes in both directions at the
Kennedy Road intersection at the east end of
the Pitt River Bridge.
Those lanes allow buses to skip ahead of
regular trafc thanks to the operation of traf-
c signals.
These improvements on the Lougheed
Highway will make travel through this busy
area more convenient and safer for motorists
and buses, Transportation Minister Blair
Lekstrom said. This project will make a real
difference to people living in these busy com-
munities as it provides better and faster travel
options.
The HOV lane that begins west of Harris
Road is now extended east for about two kilo-
metres so it begins at Dewdney Trunk Road.
A new metre-high centre median barrier on
Lougheed Highway also improves safety for
buses and other vehicles.
The project advances the objectives of the
Provincial Transit Plan by making transit
more attractive.
In 2008, the government launched the plan
to double transit ridership and reduce green-
house gases by 4.7 million tonnes cumulative-
ly by 2020.
Meanwhile, Maple Ridge is getting on with a
few of its road x-up projects.
Starting this week, repair and resurfacing
begins of River Road between Carshill and
Darby streets, following the installation of the
storm sewer upgrade. Most of the work will
take place in August.
Another storm sewer project along Shady
Lane (124th Avenue, between 216th and Laity
streets) will see a new multi-use path go atop
the utility line, making it easier for pedestri-
ans and cyclists, while preserving the heritage
trees that give the road its name. Only one tree
was chopped down because of that project.
The district also recently resurfaced a
short stretch of Lougheed Highway, just
east of 228th Street, and applied lane mark-
ings.
In Pitt Meadows, repaving is going on
Neaves Road between the south and north
Alouette rivers, as well as on Ladner Road,
east of Rennie Road.
Old Dewdney Trunk Road will also be
repaved -- supposedly from McKechnie to
Sharp road

A publicly-traded company
focused on consolidating Can-
adas fragmented childcare
industry has acquired at least
two daycares in Maple Ridge
as it rapidly expands across
the country.
Edleun Group Inc. complet-
ed it purchase of the Maple
Ridge businesses earlier this
month and has agreements
for two other redevelopment
properties, as well an addi-
tional centres in B.C.
Closing of these acquisi-
tions cements our initial move
into the British Columbia
marketplace, which broad-
ens national awareness of
the Edleun brand and cre-
ates new childcare spaces in
under-served communities,
said Leslie Wulf, chief ex-
ecutive ofcer of Edleun in a
press release.
Located in Maple Ridge, Co-
quitlam, Port Moody and Kel-
owna, the ve childcare cen-
tres with 422 licensed spaces
were purchased for price of
$4.1 million.
Maple Ridge Learning Cen-
tre, 21593 Dewdney Trunk
Road, and Maple Ridge West
Learning Centre, 12209
206th Street are listed on the
companys website.
Edleun did not return calls
for comment on the take-over
and calls to the Maple Ridge
daycares were directed to the
companys Calgary head of-
ce.
A press release issued by
Edleun, however, stressed
the value of its recent acquisi-
tions.
We are extremely pleased
with the closing of these
transactions, said Wulf.
These acquisitions are
quite material, both strategi-
cally in terms of entrenching
our expansion into British Co-
lumbia and nancially due to
their contribution to our bot-
tom line protability and cash
ow.
Edleun estimates there are
8,800 childcare centres across
Canada and aims to become a
larger player through acquisi-
tions of new and existing op-
erations, with plans to control
10 per cent of the Canadian
market.
A 23,550-square-foot early
learning and care facility
is targeted to open in early
2012 in south Calgary. which
will create 247 new licensed
child care spaces and provide
employment to 33 early child-
hood educators.
All Edleun-owned centres
are standardized and offer
a set curriculum, as well as
menus, planned by a regis-
tered dietician.
The companys aggressive
expansion plans, however,
worry childcare advocates
who characterized Edleun
approach as big box child
care.
They are not really in the
business of childcare, they
are in the business of making
money for their investors,
said Michael Lanier, chairper-
son for CUPE B.C.s childcare
working group.
Edleun Group Inc., which
began trading on the TSX
in 2010, reported unaudited
consolidated earnings of
$3,501,973 for the rst quarter
of 2011.
Lanier points to Australias
ABC Learning Centres as an
example of a large-scale cor-
porate childcare operations
gone awry. At its height, ABC
Learning Centres owned 25
per cent of the daycare spac-
es in Australia more than
1,000 centres but folded in
2008 with $1.6 billion of debt.
Wulf, Edleuns CEO, was
linked to ABC Learning Cen-
tres Canadian arm, 123 Busy
Beavers.
The Edleun Group is real-
ly involved in the real estate
market, said Lanier.
They drive the competi-
tion out of the area. They
buy buildings, set it all up
and then theyve got them-
selves a real estate invest-
ment. They are not really in
this because they believe in
child care.
As Edleun expanded across
Canada, the company active-
ly sought out private daycare
operators, including many in
Maple Ridge, asking if they
wanted to sell.
Sanya Boatter, who owns
Start Smart, a for-prot day-
care with 170 spaces and a
staff of 28, conrmed the
company was snifng around
the Maple Ridge childcare
market.
She, too, worries about a
large corporation, focused
on racking in prots for in-
vestors, caring for kids.
Ive heard a lot a talk
about big box daycares, said
Boatter.
Its just so large you lose
those inter-personal connec-
tions.

S
even thousand rubber ducks raced
down the Alouette River on Sun-
day, raising $70,000 for the first
annual Rotary Duck Race.
Organizers were initially hoping to
raise $100,000, with 10,000 ducks racing
at $10 a duck for childrens charities.
Nevertheless, Mary Robson, a mem-
ber of the organizing committee, was
thrilled with the amount raised in
what she hopes will become an annual
event.
It was a high bar to reach. Initially,
organizers were aiming for $60,000, but
after received much positive feedback,
set the bar a bit higher.
Robson hopes that momentum from
the first event will help the duck race
raise $100,000 next year.
The only problem this year, she said,
was parking.
We has such a great turnout that
parking was an issue.
About 1,500 people turned up at Maple
Ridge Park to watch the race on the
North Alouette River, said Ineke Boek-
horst, chair of the Rotary Duck Race.
Festivities ran from 10 a.m. until 3
p.m. with live music, childrens bouncy
castles, arts and crafts and face paint-
ing. Dilly the Clown and Mrs. Click en-
tertained children with balloons and
puppets. Dr. David Rempel had birds
on display and Wildplay provided fun
activities for all ages. Food and bev-
erages were provided by the Kiwanis
Club of Golden Ears.
Boekhorst was amazed by the com-
munity support for the event.
This is the most we have ever raised
for one single event, she said. And, it
is all for the kids.
The first $25,000 will be going to the
Maple Ridge chapter of KidSport, which
assists with registration costs for chil-
dren who would not otherwise be able
to play.
The remaining amount will go to youth
sports and other Rotary youth projects
in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.
The grand prize of this years event,
a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4x4 valued
at $24,692, provided by Maple Ridge
Chrysler, was won by Jeff Walker.
Second prize, a one-week luxury
cruise for two on Holland America
Lines, valued at $3,200, was won by Me-
lissa Smith.
Third prize, a $2,500 gift certificate
for Marks Work Warehouse, was won
by Velma Koob.

THE NEWS/opinion
VICTORIA The
election of Elizabeth
May as Canadas
rst-ever Green Par-
ty MP was supposed
to be a breakthrough
for environmental
issues.
Finally embraced
by voters in the or-
ganic farming region
of Saanich-Gulf Is-
lands, May was given
a mandate to change
the political conver-
sation about sustain-
able development, climate change and
pollution. The breakthrough might
even translate to the provincial level,
where Jane Sterk is the latest of a line
of B.C. Green leaders to toil in obscu-
rity.
Its too bad they both threw away
their scientic credibility last week,
by chiming in with the tiny tinfoil-hat
movement and its trumped-up opposi-
tion to B.C. Hydros transition to wire-
less meters.
May got the tinfoil ball rolling by
decrying the use of wireless internet. It
might be contributing to bee colony col-
lapse, she mused on Twitter, to much
ridicule. Apparently, she believes that
using a computer connected by a wire
keeps her free from the radio waves
that surround us all. They are gener-
ated not only by computers, cell phones
and smart meters but all sources of
light, including the infrared light that
accompanies body heat.
May then cited the much-hyped rev-
elation that the World Health Organiza-
tion has listed radio-frequency waves
as a possible carcinogen. Radio waves
such as those generated by cell phones
and wireless routers were moved to
a classication called 2B, which also
includes such volatile substances as
pickled vegetables.
What this actually means is that
health effects cant be ruled out. Its
impossible to prove that somethings
impossible. But after many years of
study, the evidence that cell phones
and such devices cause illness remains
at precisely zero.
With May alongside, Sterk called a
news conference last week to demand
a halt to B.C. Hydros smart meter
program. The rst question from a
reporter was, why are you reversing
the B.C. Greens 2009 election platform,
which called for installation of smart
meters by 2012, followed by imposition
of time-of-use electricity pricing to
reduce consumption?
Sterk expressed surprise, apparently
having forgotten her own position from
only two years ago. Political credibility
takes years to build but, only seconds
to destroy.
I attended the B.C. Green Partys 2007
leadership convention, at which Sterk
was elected. It came after a long and di-
visive debate over whether cell phones
could be used at the meeting. They
were nally allowed, but this issue
apparently took up more time than any
policy discussion.
Why is B.C. Hydro putting in smart
meters? First, mechanical meters are
obsolete and soon wont be available.
Second, B.C. is about twice as big as
Germany. Finding, let alone xing dam-
aged power lines is a monumental task.
A smart grid (much more than just digi-
tal meters) is not only self-assessing,
it can be made self-healing, rerout-
ing power to blacked-out areas when
weather, transformer failure or vehicle
accidents cut power.
Do smart meters continuously com-
municate with a mother ship, as some
claim? Do they record when you get up
at night to pee? No and no. These are
the kinds of nonsense claims that sur-
round the smart meter issue.
B.C. Hydro says four to six transmis-
sions from a smart meter to a local hub
each day amount to about a minute in
total. Radio wave exposure is equiva-
lent to a half-hour cell phone call every
20 years.
The British National Cancer Insti-
tute just published an extensive study
of children with brain tumours and
exposure to cell phones. Like previous
studies, it found no correlation.
Somebody should send a postcard to
the Green Party and tell them about it.

With the deadline Friday for HST referendum
ballots to be received by Elections B.C., anticipa-
tion is building for the result.
Its almost like betting on a horse, then waiting
for the race to be run. Except that there will be no
big winners and few big losers after the votes are
tallied.
To the governments credit, it has done a good
job spelling out two scenarios for taxpayers, both
of keeping the HST and alternately, going back to
the PST-GST.
The Fight HST camp, on the other hand, has
done virtually nothing to acknowledge any posi-
tive aspects of the now year-old sales tax system.
That one-sided vision has done the public a dis-
service and has only contributed to the confusion
over the real differences between the two taxing
strategies.
Where the Liberals have been attempting to sim-
plify the debate, Bill Vander Zalm and company
have been doing their best to muddy the facts and
appeal more to peoples hearts than their heads.
Where that leaves voters who havent yet mailed
or dropped off their HST referendum ballot is,
largely, in the dark and, in many cases, likely to
avoid voting altogether. And that is unfortunate
given that this vote will directly impact every res-
ident in the province daily.
Unlike elections, in which most voters support a
candidate or party on their merits, a referendum
is simple nothing else need be considered be-
fore casting ones ballot.
Which way will the referendum go? It seems
those convinced the HST is a bad idea are sure it
will be defeated. HST supporters tend to be a lot
more uncertain of the result, yet hopeful.
Regardless, no one need fear backing the wrong
horse. The sun will still rise, government will
continue to operate and those prone to doing so
will eventually nd something else to complain
about.

Re: Fraser Health Author-
ity aims to divert elderly
care from hospitals (The
News, July 20).
The Fraser Health Author-
itys aim of improving home
care is laudable.
The goal of keeping se-
niors in their homes safely
for as long as possible has
been talked about endlessly
in health care circles.
We need to ask ourselves
how the stated goals of
Fraser Health relate to the
care that is actually being
delivered.
My sense is that the sys-
tem is far from perfect.
The Canada Health Act
of 1984 resulted in money
for doctors and the hospi-
tal system, but home care
was never covered in this
act. Federal transfer pay-
ments for health care were
slashed 40 per cent by Paul
Martin in 1995, and weve
seen massive changes in
hospital care ever since.
Bed shortages and early
discharges are the new
standard.
Meanwhile, the long-term
care and home care sectors
of our health care system
have become favoured tar-
gets of private health care
companies.
Brian Mulroneys Canada-
U.S. free trade agreement
opened our border up to
large U.S. corporations with
years of experience in private
health care and their pres-
ence is now felt pretty much
everywhere in Canada.
It must be remembered
that without a strong public
system in place, the cher-
ished goal of universality
goes out of the window.
In other words, the qual-
ity of life being experienced
by our seniors will be more
and more determined by
their ability to pay.
As a pharmacist, I have
seen the affects health care
policy has on the lives of
patients. I have dispensed
pain-killers to a tiny,
83-year-old woman who
strained her back trying to
turn her much larger hus-
band in bed after a major
stroke robbed him of most
of his mobility.
Ive seen a Second War
Two veteran readmitted
to hospital ve hours after
being discharged. Inciden-
tally, he died less than 24
hours after his second ad-
mission.
It is my sincere hope that
home care initiatives are
given the resources they
require so that the citizens
of our province can live out
their golden years in dig-
nity.
I also hope that hospital
beds continue to be there
for people in need of them.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Ridge council votes for raise (The News, July 29).
I must commend Couns. Mike Morden and Cheryl Ash-
lie for standing against the tide of greed when it comes
to nding an excuse to accept unjustied raises for our
mayor and council.
If anybody deserved a raise it is these two councillors,
for understanding the mood of the people in these times
of austerity.
Why does this mayor and council, Morden and Ashlie
excepted, not listen to the very people who have elected
them?
It appears some think more money is needed to attract
quality candidates. I hear that stuff constantly. Obvious-
ly, we have not been able to attract quality candidates to
this point, except for Morden and Ashlie.
Council has failed to reduce our residential tax burden,
as it has constantly been increased.
Only quality people can realize that taxpayers are
stretched to the brink and they would know it is not a
time for tax increases to pay for these salaries.
Members of council do not deserve a pay increase until
taxes are reduced.
They should be paid based on performance.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Why do we have a B.C.
Day (Looking Back, July 29).
As a new resident of Pitt
Meadows, I was interested
in reading article by Carla
Reed article.
However, as a native of
Saskatchewan, and former
resident of both Manitoba
and Alberta, I was stunned
to read the rst line of her
last paragraph: In 1878, B.C.
became the sixth province to
join Confederation ...
With my Canadian history
classes from about 40 years
ago, I knew immediately that
1878 was not the year that
B.C. joined Confederation.
Being a member of the
Maple Ridge Historical Soci-
ety, and with a picture that
looks like she would have
been around in 1971 to cel-
ebrate and remember B.C.s
Centennial, if she lived here
40 years ago, Im surprised
that Ms. Reed didnt do her
homework and come up with
the correct year B.C. joined
Confederation 1871.
Please let her know that
zero provinces joined Con-
federation in 1878, but please
thank her for an otherwise
helpful article for us new-
comers to the province.

Home health care system far from perfect
A
s a boy, I
never ate
the last
third of a banana.
Those little
black dots you
see down there at
the bottom?
Tarantula eggs.
Consumed, theyll
hatch in your
stomach and lead
to a whole bunch
of fun.
My sister told
me this.
Because she was older, her word,
of course, was gospel.
It was only much later that I
learned the truth, that those black
spots are actually microvitamins
designed by NASA engineers to
give you superpowers.
But its surprising how durable
urban legends, old wives tales, and
even big sisters headgames can be,
in the face of pretty strong evidence
to the contrary.
Sure, we grownups no longer fear
stepping on a crack in the sidewalk
for fear of putting our dear mothers
in traction.
Yet many of us still feel a pang
of hesitation about opening an
umbrella inside, or walking beneath
a ladder.
And when a black cat crosses our
path, many of us are prone to say to
ourselves, oh boy, bad day ahead.
Broke a mirror? Were talking
seven years, pal.
But seriously. When I was a kid,
the real plague was chewing gum.
At the age of 10, I often stuffed
massive wads of Big League Chew
(designed to resemble chewing ta-
backy, but bright pink) in my mouth
and, when it lost its sweetness,
swallowed the whole gob of it.
For some reason, I didnt worry
about the fact it would take seven
years to digest.
At any given time, I must have had
10 to 15 pounds of the stuff working
its way through my innards.
Its no wonder my non-existent
jump shot prevented me from
getting on the basketball team in
Grade 8.
Its lucky, though, that I never ate
a whole bag of pop rocks followed
by a can of Coke. As we all know,
thats how little Mikey (He likes it)
of the Life cereal commercials died.
OK, maybe thats not true, but
General Foods apparently distrib-
uted thousands of flyers, and wrote
letters to school principals in a
futile attempt to dispel the myth.
Mikey was a cute kid. Today, hes
apparently an ad exec in New York.
Im not so cute. If you ever meet
me in person, dont be shocked by
my appearance.
See, when I was eight, I made a re-
ally silly face. And yep, you guessed
it it stayed that way.
Watched too much TV a couple
years later and I went cross-eyed.
What a mess.
So maybe, some of these urban
legends and the like are true. There
are several others, though, that
many folks still believe and that Ive
recently learned are patently false.
For one, men do not think about
sex every seven seconds. Its actu-
ally nine.
Searing meat does not lock
in the juices. But it does make a
yummy crust on your steak.
And earwigs, thankfully, will not
crawl inside your ear while youre
sleeping and eat your brain.
But do be careful if you have a
dog.
A friend of mine said that if you
pat your dogs head in a certain
place, it will cause brain damage
and ultimately, death.
Thats why I always scratch my
Lab retriever under the neck. Just
to be safe.
Bananas, thankfully, are OK to
eat. Peel and all.
Apples arent. Unless you like
razor blades.

Re: Maple Ridge council votes for raise (The News, July 29).
We can only hope the apathetic will be motivated to get off the couch
and vote to end the log jam that has been the Maple Ridge council for
too long before its too late. Also that the myopic, tunnel-vision group
will get in the 21st Century. Of course we dont want a paved over city,
but lets move forward with some balance. With the increasing popula-
tion moving out here, its inevitable. It cant stay Little House on the
Prairie forever.

Salaries should be based on: ability, responsibility, liability and perfor-
mance.
From: aschuurm, posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Lets have the taxpayers vote as to whether or not they would like to pay
taxes a very similar logic, dont you think?
From: Annette Code, posted on mapleridgenews.com.
Raises should be part of policy, at the cost of living maximum of two
per cent a year. Stop using these companies who are in the business to
be hired to raise salaries based on the PAC, or the market, whether its
council or school board. The only good thing is, its the outgoing council
voting rather than pushing it on to a new council, regardless if the same
people are returned.
And earwigs, thankfully,
will not crawl inside your
ear while youre sleeping
and eat your brain.

A Tamil asylum seeker who
arrived in Canada aboard the
MV Sun Sea last year has
been ordered deported on al-
legations he committed a war
crime in Sri Lanka.
The man, who is being
housed in a Maple Ridge
mens prison, admitted he
was a member of the Libera-
tion Tigers of Tamil Eelam, a
banned terrorist organization
in Canada.
Obliterated in 2009, the Ti-
gers fought a 30-year-long civil
war to create an independent
state in northern Sri Lanka.
In a heavily edited decision
released by the Immigration
and Refugee Protection Board
Tuesday, the man was accused
of counselling other Tamil Ti-
gers to commit a war crime.
Adjudicator Geoff Rempel
found that rather than par-
ticipate himself, the man
deliberately urged or incited
others to commit the crime.
His statements, viewed ob-
jectively in context, actively
prompted, advocated or en-
couraged the commission of
the offence, wrote Rempel.
The man was one of 492
people who travelled to Can-
ada aboard the MV Sun Sea,
a rusty 59-metre-long cargo
ship, which took three months
to sail from Thailand to Victo-
ria.
The government has re-
quested admissibility hear-
ings for 50 migrants because
of alleged links to the Tamil
Tigers.
So far, a total of six of the
Sun Sea passengers have been
deported.
The rest are pursuing refu-
gee claims. Eight men remain
in custody.

Sather from front
He will continue to
keep an eye on land use
and environmental is-
sues, in particular Maple
Ridges Albion area plan
and Pitt Meadows vision
for the North Lougheed
commercial corridor.
The B.C. NDP caucus
wished Sather the best
for the future.
From his beginnings
on a family farm in Al-
berta to his experience
as a teacher, biologist,
wilderness tourism
guide, small business
owner and mental health
therapist, Michael has
demonstrated an abid-
ing passion for the envi-
ronment and for those
who are most vulnerable
in our communities, Dix
said in a statement on
the caucus website. His
contribution to our cau-
cus and to his commu-
nity has been signicant
and will be missed.
The local NDP riding
association has not yet
picked a date for a candi-
date selection meeting.
The annual general
meeting for the B.C.
Liberals in Maple Ridge-

You may not have enjoyed the
rst part of this summer, but
just wait for whats coming: fat
and juicy blueberries, just wait-
ing to be plucked.
This year promises to be a
good harvest for blueberries.
This year, the weather has
been cooler and therefore the
quality should be better, said
Gary Purewal, with Purewal
Blueberry Farms on Hale Road
in Pitt Meadows.
Crews are about a quarter way
into the harvesting of 400 hect-
ares of blueberries, which theyll
process into fresh and frozen
packages in their Pitt Meadows
plant and ship to the U.S., Aus-
tralia and Japan.
The cooler, wetter weather in
early summer has meant the
crop has been spared the wither-
ing heat, which can shrink ber-
ries, although a virus is causing
some crop losses.
Instead, the blueberries have
grown juicier and now await -
nal ripening as the sun shines.
Prices have also bounced back
from last year.
Prices look good. Prices have
been signicantly on the rise
compared to last year, Prewal
said.
Its shaping up to be a pretty
good year for growers, packers
and retailers.
The cool weather also delayed
harvest by a few weeks, which
means there is fresh B.C. prod-
uct at a time when the U.S. crop
has nished.
During the summer, Purewal
Blueberry Farms employs about
500 workers, 100 of them foreign
workers from Mexico. The cooler
weather also helps those work-
ing on the harvest, he added.
Purewal said improvement
in growing techniques, such as
pruning and watering, have also
helped improve berry quality.
Off-season farm practices
have never been better by grow-
ers.
According to the B.C. Blueber-
ry Council, the wet spring led to
a slow growing season with the
benet of a longer harvest sea-
son.
The council represents 700
growers who produce 40 million
kilograms of blueberries annu-
ally. Canada is the third-largest
producer of highbush blueber-
ries in the world, while B.C. pro-
duces virtually all of the fresh
berry product.
Sales are expected to top $100
million this year in an industry
that employs 10,000 people.
Since 2003, the total area in
B.C. planted in blueberries has
more than doubled to 8,100 hect-
ares.

VICTORIA Trying to
maintain market share
in rapidly evolving
gambling business, B.C.
Lottery Corporation is
looking at expanding
its online games and
tickets to mobile phones
and tablets.
BCLC launched its
gambling website
PlayNow.com a year
ago, as unregulated in-
ternet poker websites
started cutting into the
provinces lucrative
casino and lottery busi-
ness. B.C. was the rst
government in North
America to jump into
online gambling, and
PlayNow.com now bills
itself as B.C.s only le-
gal gambling website.
At the July 2010
launch, cabinet minister
Rich Coleman estimated
that B.C. residents were
spending $100 million
a year on online gam-
bling, and made no apol-
ogies for encouraging
BCLC to go online and
raise its betting limit to
$9,999.
Now some of those un-
regulated sites are mov-
ing to smart phone and
tablet applications, and
BCLC is preparing to do
the same. A survey asks
PlayNow.com custom-
ers if they would use
their mobile devices to
play lotteries, poker, ca-
sino games and sports
betting.
A BCLC spokesperson
said no decision has
been made yet to pro-
ceed with mobile gam-
bling.
PlayNow.com now
has 170,000 registered
players, and is running
ahead of expectations,
despite an initial soft-
ware glitch that mixed
up player bank accounts
and forced a month-long
shutdown.
Online gambling still
represents only one
per cent of the corpo-
rations revenues, but
thats expected to grow
to four per cent by 2014.
The bulk of BCLCs
more than $1 billion an-
nual prot comes from
conventional lotteries
and casinos, as slot ma-
chines have displaced
bingo games in recent
years.
After returning some
of the gambling-funded
community grants that
were cut in 2009, Premier
Christy Clark appointed
former Kwantlen Uni-
versity president Skip
Triplett to review eli-
gibility for the grants
and stabilize funding for
non-prot groups.
Tripletts community
forums begin Aug. 11 on
Vancouver Island, mov-
ing to the B.C. Interior
and nishing in Metro
Vancouver in Septem-
ber.
Better B.C. site
Government commu-
nications have tradition-
ally been built around a
stream of propaganda,
with the emphasis on pic-
tures and text arranged
to show the ruling politi-
cians of the day in a at-
tering light.
Mundane public servic-
es like permit application
forms have been more
difcult to nd, requiring
citizens to know which
ministry is responsible
for which service. And
less attering informa-
tion has often been avail-
able only to those who
demand it under free-
dom of information leg-
islation.
Some of that changed
for the B.C. government
Tuesday, as it unveiled
a reorganized set of of-
cial websites that choos-
es information priorities
based on what citizens
are most likely to be
looking for.
The home page of the
B.C. government website
at www.gov.bc.ca still fea-
tures the smiling portrait
of Premier Christy Clark.
But its now as easy to
nd a cabinet ministers
travel expenses as it is
to nd a picture of his or
her latest ribbon-cutting.
Services and appli-
cation forms are now
prominent on the main
government website,
based on the number of
public requests for them
and surveys conducted
in recent months. Fea-
tures such as DriveBC
and emergency ood
updates are included in a
carousel of most popu-
lar sites at the centre of
the home page.
B.C. Information and
Privacy Commissioner
Elizabeth Denham is-
sued a report last year
that called on the provin-
cial government to begin
routine disclosure of in-
formation.

www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Wednesday, August 3, 2011 -- 17
A few years ago, Jeff
Malmgren was doing
some consulting work on
the River District area of
Vancouver, just west of
Boundary Road, where
its expected about 15,000
people will eventually
live.
He began to wonder,
How are these people
going to get around?
He also noticed while
doing some work for the
City of New Westminster
on the civic centre in the
midst of a burgeoning
Downtown how people
were beginning to recon-
nect with the river.
So why not, he thought,
go back in time and use
the river to get around?
The result is the Fraser
RiverBus Society, and
he recently presented
his concept to the Metro
Vancouver regional plan-
ning committee.
Theres no good rea-
son why it shouldnt
work from a transporta-
tion and social point of
view, said Malmgren.
Its only been the last
80 to 90 years that weve
turned our backs on the
river and made it a back
alley.
In Australia, Asia and
Europe its always been
in place and its growing.
In North America, its
underutilized ... Its not
only a good idea, but its
a good idea now.
Malmgren is proposing
four vessels with a pro-
jected capacity of 10,000
to 15,000 passengers per
day could run up and
down the river between
Langley and Richmond,
providing an efcient
transit alternative for
commuters.
All the best transit
links are for getting to
downtown Vancouver,
but there is a great deal
of crosstown commuting
that isnt being served,
he said.
There are more peo-
ple in Richmond who go
to work in Burnaby or
New Westminster than
to downtown Vancouver,
signicantly more, and
thats not an anomaly.
Malmgren estimates
there are 55,000 who com-
mute between the river-
front communities.
It takes a long trip on
transit to get there and it
goes through downtown
which puts unnecessary
pressure on the transit
that is going downtown,
said Malmgren.
Since cross-town com-
muting by transit is
neither convenient nor
comfortable its likely
commuters will continue
to use their own vehicles
unless something like a
RiverBus is implement-
ed, he added.
People like the speed
and privacy of the car, so
the RiverBus would have
to offer comforts such as
wireless internet, good
seating, bike storage and
hop on/hop off service,
along with a pleasant
ride on the water.
Malmgren said the ves-
sel that seems most ap-
propriate for a RiverBus
is a hydrofoil catamaran
such as those used in
New York on the East
River as well as Chicago
and Washington, D.C.
His group estimates
capital costs, including
vessels, land infrastruc-
ture and start up, would
be between $15.65 mil-
lion and $20.4 million, far
less than the West Coast
Express initial capital
costs, which it says were
$118 million. The operat-
ing cost is estimated at
$1,000 an hour per vessel
compared to the SeaBus,
which is $675 an hour.
The New Westmin-
ster Quay and the pier
at the foot of Kerr Street
in Vancouver would be
suitable for docking, said
Malmgren.
Other landings could
be in Maple Ridge, Port
Coquitlam and the River
Rock Casino and Canada
Line in Richmond.
The Metro Vancouver
regional planning com-
mittee asked the regional
districts staff to investi-
gate the proposal.
I thought there was
some merit in it, said
New Westminster Mayor
Wayne Wright, a com-
mittee member.
It makes some sense
for New Westminster
and Richmond, he added,
because of the proximity
of SkyTrain stations.
Wright said the pro-
posal is a bit too much
and suggested Malmgren
work on a scaled back op-
tion. The societys num-
bers need to be vetted
and some research done
to see just what might be
viable.
You have to have the
amounts of people, oth-
erwise you dont make
money because theres
just not enough usage
yet, said Wright.
When he visits Sydney,
Australia, Wright takes
water buses all the time.
But the population base
around the water there is
much higher than on the
Fraser River, he said.
RiverBus would run from Langley to Richmond
Contributed
Maple Ridge was suggested as one of the RiverBus landings.

Canadas lowest income seniors will soon
benet from the most signicant increase
to the Guaranteed Income Supplement
(GIS) in a quarter century.
Canadas seniors have worked hard to
build a better country for future genera-
tions and the Government of Canada has
taken important action to improve their
quality of life, said Pitt Meadows-Maple
Ridge-Mission MP Randy Kamp.
As of July of this year, seniors with little
or no income other than the old age secu-
rity benet and the GIS now receive addi-
tional benets up to $600 per year for single
seniors and up to $840 per year for couples.
The increase to the GIS represents a $300
million investment per year and is the third
GIS increase in the last ve years. Old age
security benets, including the GIS, help
seniors meet their immediate, basic needs
and maintain a minimum standard of living
in retirement.
The federal governments 2011 budget
is also providing an additional $10 million
over two years for the New Horizons for
Seniors Program, which helps seniors use
their leadership, energy and skills to ben-
efit communities across Canada.
More money for low-income seniors

Making Lives Better One Visit at a Time

Q: Im getting a little overwhelmed taking care of my elderly


mom, as well as my own family. What kinds of services do home
healthcare providers offer?
A: If you are caring for an elderly spouse or parent, you are not alone.
There are affordable in-home solutions that can give you a break. You can
order home healthcare services to suit your needs for a one-time event,
for a short period of time, or you can set up regularly scheduled visits that
are ongoing the choice is up to you. Here are a few ideas to consider:
s Respite Care this can give you a needed break for a day or just a
couple of hours. You need to be strong, healthy and rested yourself to be
there for your loved one its ok to take a break!
sPersonal Care - get help with dressing, grooming or more delicate tasks,
such as bathing or toileting.
sHousekeeping & Fresh Meals laundry, vacuuming, dusting - is it time
to get some help with these? A caregiver can whip up a fresh, home-
cooked meal, or do some grocery shopping.
s Companionship a caregiver can visit to make sure everything is ok,
make a cup of tea, go for a walk, or re-engage your loved one in a
favourite hobby.
sNursing Visits/Post-Surgical Care a nurse can perform a dressing
change, or a check-up. A caregiver can take care of a loved one and
their home, while they get back on their feet.
sTransportation a caregiver can transport your relative to appointments
or errands, accompany them inside, and wait to take them home.
sLive-in Care overnight or 24/7 live-in care is an option, if a loved one
needs constant care, or someone to be there just in case.

The provincial govern-
ment has unveiled a suite
of multimedia training re-
sources to help physicians
and other health profes-
sionals educate seniors in
ways to prevent falls and
stay healthy.
Falls result in serious con-
sequences to older people
and cost the B.C. health
care system approximately
$155 million annually. In
2010, more than 12,000 se-
niors were hospitalized for
a fall-related injury in B.C.
and there were 940 deaths
due to falls in 2009.
One out of three seniors
aged 65 and over typically
fall once or more each year.
Those who fall are two to
three times more likely to
fall again. And 95 per cent
of all hip fractures among
seniors are due to a fall,
while seniors with fall-re-
lated injuries tend to stay
in hospital twice as long as
seniors hospitalized for all
other reasons.
A history of prior falls,
decreased muscle strength
and poor balance are most
strongly associated with
an increased risk of falling
among seniors.
Evidence shows that many
of these falls and injuries
can be predicted and pre-
vented.
As a doctor, I see rst-
hand the damaging and
sometimes fatal effects that
falls can have on seniors,
said Margaret MacDiarmid,
the provinces parliamenta-
ry secretary for seniors.
This fall prevention cam-
paign will provide impor-
tant information on how to
prevent a fall and let seniors
remain independent.
The fall prevention mul-
timedia package includes a
video as well as written re-
sources aimed at engaging
both seniors and doctors.
The video highlights some
of the ways to reduce fall
risks, common health con-
ditions related to falls and
practical assessment tools.
The resources offer safe
and easy-to-follow exer-
cises, recommendations for
good sleep habits and ways
to make a seniors home
safer to reduce falls.
The home activity hand-
out includes seven seated
and standing exercises se-
niors can do to help stay
healthy and prevent a fall.
When done routinely
and progressively, these
simple exercises are effec-
tive to increase strength
and improve balance.
New resources aim to help
seniors prevent falls
As a doctor, I see first-
hand the damaging
and sometimes fatal
effects that falls can
have on seniors.

A
lanna Babic-Day is a girl who hates
getting her feet dirty. Shes the kind
of kid who makes sure every grain of
sand gets dusted off her toes after she steps
out of the sand pit.
Shes a really girlie girl, says her mom,
Ashley.
With curly brown hair and piercing blue
eyes, Alanna likes dressing up, putting on a
show and doesnt shy away from the spotlight.
Shes an attention seeker, Ashley says
with a laugh. Perhaps thats why Alanna, who
is two and a half, wasnt even slightly fazed by
the hot lights and big cameras when she made
her acting debut earlier this year in the made-
for-TV movie Magic Beyond Words.
In fact, says Ashley, Alanna was thrilled that
everyone wanted to play with her.
Based on a true story, the Magic Beyond
Words follows world famous author J.K. Rowl-
ing on her inspirational journey to creating
and writing Harry Potter.
Growing up in working class England, Rowl-
ing struggled between dreams of wanting to
be an author and the harsh reality of nding a
career that would keep her out of poverty.
Despite constant obstacles, including her
mothers early death and a destructive mar-
riage, Rowling never gave up hope of achiev-
ing her dream. Instead, she uses her past ex-
periences good and bad, as the inspiration
that leads her to dream up the magical story
of a young orphan on his way to wizard school
a story that would change the face of litera-
ture.
Alanna plays Rowlings daughter, Jessica,
aged 14 to 20 months. She spent ve days
shooting the biopic in Vancouver and Victoria,
sometimes clocking eight hours on set.
Luckily the young starlet had her own trailer
and formed an instant bond with Poppy Mont-
gomery (Without A Trace), the actress who
played Rowling.
Ashley was on set each day, lurking behind
curtails off camera, just in case Alanna cried
for mommy.
Ashley who also acted as a child, decided to
sign Alanna with Reel Kids Talent Agency,
because acting helped her break out of her
shell.
They watched Magic Beyond Words togeth-
er when it premiered July 18.
Alanna recognized her co-stars, but was a
little frightened by a scene which featured a
goblin.
I think it will be so fun for her to grow up
and see herself on TV or look back at the mov-
ie, her mom said.

Maple Ridge resident and Pitt Mead-
ows bookstore owner Nicole Skutelnik
illustrated the Burns Bog Conservation
Societys latest publication.
Karla Olson wrote For Peats Sake:
A Complete Classroom Study on Burns
Bog and other Peatlands for teachers
as an educational series about climate
change.
It uses Burns Bog as an example to
explore the science of Canadas ecosys-
tems.
It was a good experience working
with Karla, said Skutelnik. Its al-
ways nice to do things like this for a
nonprot. Ill always continue working
with them.
Skutelnik co-wrote and illustrated
two childrens storybooks, Boglin Gets
Lost and Boglin and the Birthday Par-
ty, with Pamela Finding while complet-
ing a practicum for the society in 2007.
The books were edited by Olson.
Olson remembered Skutelniks en-
thusiasm for childrens literature and
her engaging illustrations when look-
ing for someone to illustrate For Peats
Sake.
Nicoles passion for childrens books
really motivated me, said Olson. So
when I began this book, I wanted to
make this science-based information
interesting and enjoyable for all stu-
dents to help them love learning.
The publication - divided into two
books - follows the B.C. Ministrys les-
son guidelines to give educators photo-
copiable reading materials and cross-
curriculum activities.
Skutelnik opened Tomes and Tales
as part of her lifetime devotion and
love for books at the age of 21 last year.
The Douglas College graduate writes
childrens books and articles for a chil-
drens website during the quiet hours
at the bookstore. She is also working
on a young adult novel.
I fell in love with childrens litera-
ture ever since reading the rst Harry
Potter when I was 11, said Skutelnik.
I guess I never really grew out of it. It
affected many of my future decisions
from the book reviews I write to the
practicum I did.
The book launched as part of the
International Bog Day activities on
July 24 at Planet Ice in Delta. The day
included a Jog for the Bog, live perfor-
mances, childrens activities and tours
through Burns Bog.

Youll be able to catch movies
under the stars in Pitt Meadows
and Maple Ridge this week.
Vancity brings the animated
movie Rio to Harris Road Park in
celebration of the credit unions
65th anniversary.
The lm tells the story of Blu,
a male blue macaw who is taken
to Rio de Janeiro to mate with
a female. He eventually falls in
love with Jewel, a free-spirited
macaw, and together they have
to escape from being smuggled
by Nigel, a cockatoo.
In addition to the large screen
feature movie, there will be a
host of activities to entertain,
including the game Plinko, and
a chance to win some great
prizes.
Popcorn stands will be open
during the screening, with all
proceeds going to local charities
in the community.
Not-for-prot organiza-
tions and other social enterpris-
es will have tents set up in the
park with information about the
work they do in the community
and how you can support them.
In Maple Ridge, you can
catch another animated flick,
Megamind.
Voiced by comedian Will Far-
rell, Megamind is the most bril-
liant super-villain the world has
ever known and the least suc-
cessful.
Over the years, he has tried
to conquer Metro City in every
imaginable way. Each attempt
is a colossal failure thanks to
the caped superhero known as
Metro Man, until the day Me-
gamind actually defeats him in
the throes of one of his botched
evil plans.
Suddenly, the fate of Metro
City is threatened when a new
villain arrives and chaos runs
rampant, leaving everyone to
wonder: Can the worlds biggest
mind actually be the one to
save the day?

Calling all backyard
photographers its
time to show the world
your talent.
The annual B.C. SPCA
Wildlife-In-Focus pho-
tography contest is now
open and photos submit-
ted by Aug. 15 will be con-
sidered for an upcoming
book by Vancouver au-
thor Nicholas Read.
City Critters: Liv-
ing Wild in the Urban
Jungle, from Orca Book
Publishers, will be a full-
colour childrens book
about the urban wildlife
who call North America
home.
All other photos for the
contest can be submitted
until Sept. 30.
Last years Wildlife-In-
Focus contest entries are
also being considered
for publication in City
Critters. Prizes will be
awarded for the top three
photos in each of two cat-
egories: Wild Settings
and Backyard Habitats.
The contest is open to
all adult (age 14 years
and up) backyard and
amateur photographers
residing in B.C.
We were thrilled to
have the publisher re-
view our contest photos
last year, but to have an-
other opportunity to in-
clude even more pictures
from B.C.s backyard and
amateur photographers,
is exciting, says Sara
Dubois, manager of wild-
life services for the B.C.
SPCA.
Read co-authored The
Salmon Bears: Giants of
the Great Bear Rainfor-
est and The Sea Wolves:
Living Wild in the Great
Bear Rainforest with Ian
McAllister, both from
Orca Book Publishers.
Were very happy that
Nicholas has asked to
review this years early
photo contest entries
again, says Dubois.
Its a testament to the
calibre of photos that are
entered.
The 2011 Wildlife-In-Fo-
cus photography contest
is a fundraiser for Wild
ARC, the BC SPCAs
wildlife rehabilitation
facility on Vancouver Is-
land.
The annual Wildlife-
In-Focus contest en-
courages participants
to explore green spaces,
roadsides, beaches and
even backyards to nd
striking images that rep-
resent the resiliency of
local wildlife living at the
interface with humans.
Wildlife includes free-
living birds, mammals,
amphibians, reptiles,
sh and insects, but not
exotic, feral or domestic
animals, or wildlife in
zoos or rehabilitation fa-
cilities.
As the only wildlife
rehabilitation center
on southern Vancouver
Island, the B.C. SPCA
Wild Animal Reha-
bilitation Centre (Wild
ARC) treats more than
1,800 wild animals each
year. Your gift can help
give an orphaned or in-
jured animal a second
chance.

competition for
B.C.s nature lovers

business PROFILE
ADVERTORIAL
Terry Brandow has been running Tumblestone
Emporium since 2003, but decided to make
some radical changes this year.
One of the most important was bringing
in Rhonda Russell as a partner. Brandow said
Russells business experience, combined with
her knowledge of stones will take the emporium
to a new level.
Shes very experienced in retail, very
experienced in business, Brandow said. Were
working together to make it even better than
it was before.
Brandow said their primary focus is to offer all
sorts of resources and
services, from a huge
selection of tumbled
stones to jewelry
design, fabrication
and repair to books
on stones and healing
modalities.
We try to hit all
levels, Brandow
said. It really is an
emporium of stone.
The jewelry, in
particular, has been a
hit, and Brandow said
its successful because
of the calibre of the
product.
Its designer-level,
she said. Weve had some very interesting
pieces come through.
Brandow said producing custom jewelry is a
rewarding experience.
We will create for people,she said.Theres a
variety of designs.
Another key focus for the business is its
namesake: tumbled stones. Brandow said a
tumbled stone is a fascinating product, as
it reects both raw stone and the polishing
process, and there are plenty of unique ones.
Its a raw stone, the size between a quarter
and a dollar, she said. Its pushed through
tumblers and polished. We have 70 to 100
different types of tumbled stone from all over
the world.
They also have plenty of mixed stones.
We have a treasure chest lled with stone
from all over the world, Brandow said.
Looking at some of those stones is an exciting
experience for many kids, and Brandows
happy to see many of them come in with their
parents.
We have some great up-and-coming
geologists, she said.Theyre a great part of our
clientele.
Brandow and Russell just ofcially opened
their new location in Maple Ridges ValleyFair
Mall (located at 22709 Lougheed Hwy) on Aug.
1.
Brandow said the new location has allowed
them to make both aesthetic and functional
improvements.
We have
recreated the
Tumbl estone
Emporium with
a new look and
new products,
she said. Were
stepping up the
look a bit, and
were adding
new lines,
new books on
stones.
Russell said
her business
e x p e r i e n c e
convinced her
that getting
involved with
Tumblestone Emporium was a good plan, and
her friendship with Brandow made it even more
attractive.
Weve developed a very good friendship;
thats very hard to nd, Russell said. We work
very well together. I have 16 years of retail
experience, Ive managed merchandise stores,
and Rhonda knows all about stones. Between
us, weve got tons of experience.
Russell said their strengths feed off each other,
which has made the partnership an enjoyable
experience.
Working together, we just found it made
things even better, she said.
Brandow said Russells business experience
has proved vital thus far, and working with her
gives them plenty of exciting options for the
future.
Rhonda gives me that support and backing,
she said.Were looking at continuing to expand.
We can take it to levels I couldnt.
New era for
Tumblestone Emporium

Ben Davies of the Maple Ridge Burrards reaches for the ball during a Western Lacrosse Association game against the New Westminster
Salmonbellies at Planet Ice Sunday evening. The Burrards won the game 12-7, advancing to the WLA playoffs for the second year in a row.
For the second year in a row, the Maple
Ridge Burrards have qualied for the
Western Lacrosse Association playoffs
with a win in their nal game of the sea-
son.
And also for the second year in a row,
the Burrards will face the rst-place New
Westminster Salmonbellies in their rst-
round, best-of-seven playoff series.
The Burrards punched their ticket to
the playoffs at home Sunday night as
they beat the Salmonbellies 12-7 in the
last game of the regular season.
With the win, the Burrards nish the
season with an 8-10 record and 16 points.
Despite being in a three-way tie for fourth
place, and the nal playoff berth, with
Nanaimo (7-9-2) and Burnaby (7-9-2), the
Burrards advanced with more wins.
After losing 12-11 to Burnaby on the
road Friday night, the Burrards were in a
must-win situation Sunday night at home
against the Salmonbellies, the top team
in the WLA
Maple Ridge opened up a 5-0 lead before
the Salmonbellies got on the board near
the midway mark of the second period.
Drew Dickie was perfect in net in the
rst period for the Burrards, shutting out
New West shooters on 19 shots.
New West managed ve goals in the
second period, and with the Burrards
season on the line, Maple Ridge went into
the third period with a 7-5 lead.
With a playoff berth within grasp, the
Burrards scored ve unanswered goals
to start the nal frame, snufng any
chance of a New West comeback.
The Burrards offence was buoyed last
weekend thanks to the return of Joel Dal-
garno, who nished with 12 points in two
games.
Dalgarno had seven points Sunday
night against the Salmonbellies, includ-
ing four goals, and was named the games
rst star.
Riley Loewen had three goals and two
assists for the Burrards, while Derek
Lowe had three goals. Curtis Dickson
and Aaron Davis were the other Maple
Ridge goal scorers.
The Burrards will now face New West-
minster tonight (Wednesday) at Queens
Park Arena in the rst game of their best-
of-seven playoff series.
The Burrards have two wins over New
West in their three-game season series.
However, the Salmonbellies, who won the
WLA title last season, handed the Bur-
rards their worst defeat of the season, a
14-4 drubbing at Queens Park Arena in
June.
The Salmobellies eventually lost to the
Peterborough Lakers in the Mann Cup
nal.
The Burrards have never won the Mann
Cup since moving to Maple Ridge in 1996.
The last Burrards team to hoist Canadian
senior A lacrosses biggest prize was the
Vancouver Burrards, who won the Mann
Cup in 1977.
The Burrards return home for Game 2
this Friday at Planet Ice at 7:45 p.m. Game
4 and Game 6 (if necessary) will also take
place at Planet Ice, Tuesday, Aug. 9 and
Friday, Aug. 12, respectively.

The Pitt Meadows Rockets
are hoping for some com-
munity support as they try
to become BMOs 2011 Team
of the Week champion.
The U-10 girls soccer team
was selected as one of the
15 BMO teams of the week
in June, which puts them
in the running to towards
a $125,000 eld refurbish-
ment/upgrade along with a
$5,000 cheque to the charity
of their choice and a trip to
see a Toronto FC or Vancou-
ver Whitecaps game.
They will need help from
the community to achieve
their goal, however, as the
winner will be determined
by an online vote.
Voting started Aug. 1 and
continues to Aug. 15.
Coach Jamie Schwingen-
schloegl said the team is
dedicated to the sport of soc-
cer, and to the community.
This year the team orga-
nized its own community
food bank drive, which re-
sulted in more than 700 items
being collected, enough to
feed every hungry child in
Pitt Meadows for a month.
They are all exemplary
students and great com-
munity role models, said
Schwingenschloegl.
