Medical pot growing rules changing

Producing medical marijuana in homes will be phased out, according to proposed new regulations announced Sunday in Maple Ridge. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@mrtimes.com

www.mrtimes.com

A Sunday afternoon press conference in the training room of Maple Ridge’s main fire hall saw changes announced that could put the kibosh on people growing medical marijuana at home by spring 2014. Under the guise of being legal, there are many pot growing homes around Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows – and likewise across the country – that must be banned, Minister of Health Leona Aglukkaq told a room of media, local politicians, as well as police officers and fire officials. The number of Health Canada approved growers has skyrocketed from 500 a decade ago to 26,000 today, and with no Roxanne Hooper/TIMES substantive rules in place to govern the Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq, local MP Randy Kamp, and RCMP Supt. Dave Walsh fielded questions during a operations, the rapid increase has created medical marijuana press conference in Maple Ridge on Sunday.

Fire displaces sisters for second time

A two-alarm fire left a Maple Ridge building with wide-spread damage. by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Several Maple Ridge families may be homeless this Christmas, after a two-alarm fire Thursday night forced the evacuation of an apartment building on McIntosh Avenue. Sisters Eva and Janice Lindgren are now looking for a place to live, again. The house they lived in burned down a

year and a half ago. This time they don’t have insurance. “I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. I’m very confused,” Eva told The TIMES. “I spoke with BC Housing and the lady there said I’d be at the top of the list. And, the Red Cross came today and asked for our info.” “We both need glasses,” she said about herself and her sister, who has epilepsy. The fire appears to have started in a bedroom on the third floor of the four-storey building and triggered about 30 evacuations. Two seniors had to be rescued from a bal-

cony and one person was taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation. The flames broke out in the building in the 22300-block before midnight. More than 50 firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze. Fire crews remained on scene until Friday morning, putting out hot spots and persistent flare-ups. Damage to the building was widespread — mostly from water — and residents are being put up in nearby hotels in the interim. The cause of the fire is still undetermined and the investigation continues.

Minister advocates keeping elderly at home The provincial government has appointed a senior to look after seniors’ needs. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Affordable housing, elder abuse, and dementia are hot topics for seniors, according to the provincial minister dedicated to the needs of the elderly. Local seniors were able to chat on Thursday with the Minister of State for Seniors, Ralph Sultan, when he came to the Ridge Meadows Seniors Activity Centre on Thursday meeting to lead a discussion on seniors’ issues. Sultan said he advocates three strategies to help seniors: keep them in their own homes as long as possible, let seniors help other seniors, and plan with seniors, not for them. Sultan said he’s a typical senior, in his 80s, and living by himself in a big house full of stuff he accumulated during his 43 years of marriage before the passing of his wife. With about 92 per cent of seniors still living in their own homes, Sultan said government should ensure they are able to stay there as long as possible. But affordable housing, like for other segments of the population, is a concern for seniors as well, Sultan said.

Making the problem worse, however, is that many communities don’t want low-income housing, he added. “If you can provide good housing – affordable, safe, age-friendly – you’ve gone a long way to solving problems for seniors,” Sultan said. While many seniors are still living in their own homes, they need to be supported more so they can continue to live there. “We should try to do everything as a government… to keep them at home,” Sultan said. The government has given $15 million to the United Way to explore what kind of home care seniors need to help them stay living in their own homes, for example, help with things like sweeping and cleaning leaves from gutters. Sultan said he heard that three local seniors have ended up in Ridge Meadows Hospital this holiday season because they hurt themselves putting up Christmas lights. Peer support from seniors is another area the government would like to focus on, Sultan said, but, in his discussions with seniors, “I find most seniors saying ‘we’re already doing that’ and they enjoy doing it.” There are 30,000 governmentsubsidized care home spots, but, Sultan said, that will have to double over the next 15 years. “We have to learn how to

do this efficiently [but] with humanity,” he said. He pointed to the incident last week whereby a senior was not checked on for three days in Summerland and ended up dying. “Maybe we need new regulations… these things should never, never happen,” he said. Elder abuse is another topic that concerns the minister of

state for seniors, and he said there are disturbing stories of children stealing from their elderly parents. The provincial government has published a guide to planning advance care entitled My Voice: Expressing My Wishes for Future Health Care Treatment. It includes topics like developing an advance care plan with a focus on life support and

life-prolonging medical interventions; advance care planning options, for example, temporary substitute decision maker and power of attorney; and changing or cancelling an advance care plan. The advance care guide is available at www.gov.bc.ca – click on “Seniors” and look for Advance Care Planning to download the guide.

The family of Del Parent (left to right) brother Andre, son Kyle, stepdaughter Kayla, and ex-wife Christina, asked the public in 2010 for information regarding an attack that has left Del permanently brain damaged.

Family claims Ridge man ‘lost justice’ …continued from page A3

Calla returned to the bar, but was called outside a few minutes later. Hecker was kicking and fighting with Delane, and Calla said in statements that he intervened to stop the fight. He brought Delane to the ground, straddled him and slapped him in the face to get his attention. Delane’s friend called the police and an ambulance during the fracas, but after they arrived Delane declined treatment. He and his friend took separate cabs home. Delane did not show up for work on Monday and after receiving a call from Delane’s co-workers, Andre went to check on him on the Tuesday afternoon. He found Delane semi-conscious in his living room. Andre called an ambulance and Delane was rushed to hospital. It was discovered that Delane had suffered a dissection of his carotid artery, which caused a stroke. Delane underwent surgery and a dif-

ficult recovery that included seizures and chronic infection. He still suffers from aphasia — a disorder that impairs his ability to process language — and is unable to use his right hand. Delane can walk, but he uses a cane. Andre disputed some of the evidence from the trial, particularly the allegation by Hecker, who did not testify, that Delane had prompted the second interaction with the bouncers by punching another patron. He said his brother has never been in a fight before and pointed out that the men who dealt with Delane were trained mixed martial-arts fighters. “There was no evidence by witnesses or by fact that my brother assaulted anyone or fought back in any way,” Andre said. Andre said the judge’s decision doesn’t change anything for him or Delane, who lives in a care facility. “He lost his house, his wife. He lost everything and now he’s lost justice.”

Our View

Eager to fight grow ops now There will be a lot of smiling and nodding and happy faces at the news that federal health minister Leona Aglukkaq is taking aim at marijuana growers who are hiding behind current laws to operate illegal drug businesses. Nobody wants illegal grow ops in their neighbourhoods or in their communities. We all pay for the electricity they steal. We all pay for the service costs they dodge by not paying taxes on their enterprising activities. Nobody wants the dangers associated with living next door to such operations. There is always the very real risk that their colleagues in crime will bring violence to their “place of business” – which can easily spill onto the streets as they “protect their interests” or into nearby homes through “mistaken identity” or even into local shopping malls as they engage in open battle with one another. Police officers risk their lives trying to protect innocent bystanders and bring the perpetrators to justice. Firefighters face grave risks when they all too often have to deal with grow op fires – or fires in legitimate homes that they might have reason to fear could be grow ops? How many times have they felt they had reason to hesitate, when perhaps it hadn’t been necessary? And how do you measure the cost of that? We all pay the social costs. And we all are eager to shed those costs – or at least make those who force that burden on us pay. But one thing about Aglukkaq’s proposal bothers us. How will we know that her solution is the best possible? She insists there will be a period of open consultation… and also insists her proposals will be implemented in 2014. Why bother with the consultation, if she’s so sure her solution is right? Either honestly listen for the best answers, or do it right now. – B.G.

Foreign investment

PM selling country to China

Dear Editor, We are in real trouble, Canada! On Friday afternoon, Dec. 7, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that he will allow CNOOC, the China’s state-owned oil company, to take over Canadian fossil fuel giant Nexen. This deal gives CNOOC control of three- to six-billion barrels of Canadian tarsands oil, and is a major step in the wrong direction for the global climate if the CNOOC exploits these oil reserves to their fullest extent. The next step for Harper is to backdoor us again by passing the secretive and extreme FIPA (the Canadian-China Foreign Investment Protection Act, a major new trade deal that would grant unprecedented powers to Chinese corporations that own Canadian natural resources). There has been considerable concern and backlash over this potentially disastrous deal for Canada, and Harper is attempting to remove it from the spotlight so that he can have it passed quietly when our attention is diverted elsewhere. If FIPA passes, CNOOC will be able to sue Canadian governments in secret tribunals if our governments do anything to counter its

growing interests – including common sense environmental protections and job-creation efforts. FIPA would be like NAFTA, but more dangerous. Canada has already spent millions on lawsuit penalties launched under the North American Free Trade Agreement, and is currently being sued by a U.S. corporation because Quebec placed a temporary moratorium on fracking to study its controversial health and safety impacts. If FIPA passes, the door will be opened for CNOOC and Chinese corporations to do even worse. We are in real trouble, Canada, and we better come together quickly to protect Canadian democracy and our natural resources from corporate greed. Now that Harper has allowed this damaging Nexen takeover, we must stop him from passing the secretive and extreme FIPA. Please speak out – loud and clear. Write your papers, call your MPs, rein in Harper’s race to sell out Canada as we know it. In his words: “You won’t recognize Canada when I am done with it.” And, sadly, he wasn’t kidding. Dana Lacroix, Maple Ridge

Taxes come more often than death Maple Ridge and the resulting uninterrupted upward march of taxes and fees. Segregating taxes into taxes, fees, levies, etc. is an old game that most of the residents and taxpayers see through. They are all money the District takes from our pockets. This time last year, I implored the District to adopt zero-based budgeting – starting with a clean sheet every year: no program or expenditure is sacrosanct; every program has to be evaluated to determine whether it is still required and adding value. The followup is to determine if the expenditures are being done

Pitt Meadows

Meetings block participation

Dear Editor, Our mayor in Pitt Meadows is showing that she has picked up how to play the game of politics. At a previous budget meeting, there was an overflow crowd of concerned citizens who were unhappy about our property tax increases. So when does the mayor and her crew on council schedule the next meeting? Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 5 p.m. No surprise that only a handful of residents attended the budget open house, seeing as anyone who works would be stuck in rush-hour traffic. I guess that, based on the turnout, the mayor and council will assume that the residents of Pitt Meadows have lost interest in the budget. They are wrong, but we’ll have to wait and see what the next political roadblock will be. Maybe they could have the next meeting at 2 a.m. That way we could attend the meeting before going to work? Archie Blankers, Pitt Meadows

responsibly, efficiently, and effectively. It is how successful businesses continue to be successful. I am not suggesting a municipal government is run the same as a business, but it should have the same discipline about spending money as a successful business does. In fact, the discipline and respect should be higher, because you are spending someone else’s money. Tax revenue is not council’s money; it is money that we, the taxpayer, entrust to council to use judiciously and responsibly. Unfortunately, this fact has been lost on too many elected and staff members. People can become attached to or even dependent upon “their” programs or projects. But it leads them and often their managers to stop looking at the program or project objectively. Rather they focus on finding ways to justify and maintain “their” program. But it is council’s responsibility to require that each and every program and project is required every year. The annual budget process is like Christmas for the District. But the taxpayer won’t even be able to afford a lump of coal. John Kelly, Maple Ridge [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www. mrtimes.com.]

Provincial taxation

Unlegislated tax rate sets bar low

Dear Editor, Wow! Tax increases by stealth. Lowest personal income taxes in the country? NOT! This government really is number one in setting the bar as low as it can go. A senior federal revenue official says, “British Columbia has traditionally utilized the indexing method for the basic personal amount. Effective Jan. 1, 2013, however,

the amounts have been legislated without indexing. The amounts as stated in the T4127 have been confirmed as correct by the government of British Columbia.” Just wondering how this government was able to legislate anything, as Premier Christy Clark has not seen fit to call a fall session in the legislature.

Dear Editor, It is that time of year again – no, not Christmas, but Municipal Tax Increase Time. That means another annual tax increase. Unlike municipal tax increases, death only occurs once in a lifetime. Our mayor has his throwaway lines to justify the annual tax increases: roads, services, infrastructure to be built or repaired; we must spend now or the cost will be much higher in the future. They are simply to divert the taxpayers and residents from focusing on the dysfunctional budgeting process used by the District of

TransLink

Time for a B-Line bus to Maple Ridge

I

Looking for a cure Mike Sands’ (in the wheelchair) family has rallied around him as he battles ALS. They took part in the recent Walk for ALS 2012 as Team I like Mike. In the meantime, a group of fitness enthusiasts attending classes at the seniors centre showed their support for Sands and ALS. Their T-shirts are a symbol of the love and support Sands and his wife Nadine and their family have received. The local couple are grateful for the support and encouragement of the community. “God has truly blessed us all,” said Sands’ mother-in-law Sheila Klassen. For more about his journey with ALS, check out their blog at alswithcourage.blogspot.com.

Just Saying by Gordy Robson

f you have the opportunity to go to Hannover, Germany, you will notice something distinctive about the city. Of all the places in the world that profess to have efficient transit systems, when you ask for directions in Hannover, the answer is always a transit route. Everything is within a couple of blocks’ walk of a transit line. One-third of the city is forest, and the transit system moves everyone. I, like a number of others, marvelled at what they had been able to do. When I searched out the economic development officer and asked how they were able to create such an incredible plan, he made me very aware that I was one of hundreds who have asked him the same stupid question, and in his terms, we were idiots. He then showed me a picture on the wall which was Hannover at the end of the war. There was one building standing. He then told me: “We got to start over and we were able to design our city around transit lines.” What he did not understand is

why other cities couldn’t learn from their experience and have a plan from the start, rather than having to start over. Taking that philosophy of having a plan: “Maple Ridge to TransLink… We have a problem.” TransLink, despite its best efforts, has unleashed warlocks against warlocks for TransLink dollars. Burnaby, through politics and, some would say, good management, has accumulated hundreds of millions of dollars of property as an added benefit from SkyTrain. While Burnaby competes with Vancouver and Surrey for the next billion-dollar expenditures, somebody should say, “Just a minute.” Rather than requiring the riders to pay more or increasing property taxes, there is a very simple solution called the Area Benefitting Tax. It is especially applicable to UBC’s claim that they are the next to get TransLink dollars. UBC has sold hundreds of millions of dollars of market-value housing, and now wants transit, expecting TransLink to pay the bill. Forcefully, Mayor Diane Watts of Surrey is now starting to compete for the billions of dollars of future expenditures of TransLink. The outward regions of TransLink have never been serviced well, but somehow during all of the discussion, Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender has been able to arrange a direct B-Line bus to his neighbourhood. It is more surprising that Mayor Watts did

not seem to know anything about the direct route – which bypassed Surrey. So, back to the plan and do we have one? If Maple Ridge had a B-Line to transit that would become an LRT line when usage demanded it, that would be a plan which we could use to develop our community. Apparently, we are not allowed to do that without a scenic tour of the City of Pitt Meadows. Maple Ridge collects more than $5 million per year through property taxes for TransLink, and it is easy to claim that there is no option. I think that is what got King John in trouble. Our community should come together and demand TransLink to provide a plan for the future, one which we can plan our community around, one which doesn’t require us to start over. An Area Benefitting Tax, which is a small tax imposed on an area surrounding transit stations, would solve the funding problem. Good luck getting that passed, because the cities that already have the stations would never support it. Now, we are back to the warlocks. An obvious question to my friend Mayor Daykin is: If Mayor Fassbender can get a direct bus past Surrey, why can’t you get a bus past Pitt Meadows? – Gordy Robson is a former Maple Ridge mayor and a local businessman who was raised in this community.

West Coast Express’ Santa Train rolled out of the Port Haney, Maple Meadows, and Pitt Meadows stations Saturday and Sunday morning full of folks who traded toys for tickets to ride. During the past two weekends, 742 toys and $261.70 were collected for the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society on the Santa Train. Tanya McEwan and her kids Chase and Mackenzie, Bill Sawchuk, Sydney Hammer, Savannah Wise, Katie Pesut, and Devin Powley volunteered their time collecting the toys and cash. “The closer you get to Christmas, the more generous people are,” said Lorraine Bates, co-chair of the hamper society. “Fewer people have registered for the hamper this year and to me that is success. That makes me feel good.”

Literacy

Shelves groaning with great recipes

Creating meaningful Christmas traditions During the past two years, the Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows TIMES has begun establishing a Christmas tradition of inviting members of the community and our staff and contributors to share their recipes and special family stories or traditions. Early childhood education columnist Kathy Booth and reporter Troy Landreville along with his two-year-old son Cole (far right) are among those who have shared their recipes and stories. There is a growing compilation of these recipes and, in many cases, accompanying tales easily available on our website for people to view. Click on www.mrtimes.com and search “recipes shared “ for access to all the recipes and stories in PDF format. To submit one for future inclusion, please email: editorial@mrtimes.com, and put “holiday recipes” in the subject line. High resolution pictures are also welcome.

Charity spirit

Company’s act of kindness wows Garibaldi Dec. 13 turned out to be a great day for Garibaldi Secondary. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Boisterous cheers filled Garibaldi Secondary’s gymnasium Thursday afternoon (Dec. 13). Students, staff, and PAC members whooped it up as the school received $22,600 in donations from three groups, and eager volunteers covered a trio of School District 42 trustees with Christmas wrapping paper. The assembly kicked off with cheque presentations of $1,000 from Douglas College and $1,600 from the Kiwanis Club of Golden Ears. Both donations are earmarked for spin bikes for Garibaldi students. The loudest cheer, and a standing ovation, went to TLane Transportation, Logistics & Cranes, a Mission company that presented $20,000 to the school. The donation will help fund Garibaldi’s in-school hampers as well as its in-school food bank and meal program for students with financial challenges. Garibaldi principal Grant Frend then doled out kudos to students who were seen doing good deeds around the school. After that school trustees Susan Carr, Ken Clarkson, and Mike Murray stood stoically, side-by-side, as students frantically smothered them with Christmas wrapping over a three-minute span. The group that put together the most creative trustee “present” – judged by the level of applause – earned the winning students free lunch for the next week. Staff will also meet to explore other ways to use the money to

Mike Murray, School District 42 trustee, was a good sport as Garibaldi Secondary students covered him with wrapping paper Thursday afternoon. In the meantime, School District 42 trustee Susan Carr (inset) struck a pose while the students who wrapped her in Christmas paper urged their peers to cheer for them.

T-Lane Transportation & Logistics made a cheque presentation in the amount of $20,000 to Garibaldi Secondary on Thursday. Troy Landreville/TIMES

help students. “Twenty-thousand dollars!” Frend said during the assembly. “Awesome. Holy cow. You guys don’t know how many meals,

how many people that money’s going to help.” Knowing about the school’s hamper efforts, T-Lane, led by its general manager Tim Germain,

approached Garibaldi recently looking for ways to contribute. Teacher Harjit Bahia received a call from the school office saying a man wanted to meet and discuss the school’s hamper drive. “We met and he simply asked, regarding the hamper, ‘What do you need?’” Bahia related. “I thought he was going to donate maybe $100 or so but then he said, ‘How about 10 or 15?’” Bahia said his “jaw dropped.” He was speechless. “Before I could say anything he said, ‘10 or 15 thousand? You know what, let make it an even 20.’ I was stunned and asked if he was sure about this. He said they had a good year and that he and his family were glad they could help.” During the presentation Frend

said, “T-Lane Transport and Logistics, thank you so much; that is so incredibly generous. This is going to help us not just now but for a long time. It’s going to help a lot of needy students and their families.” The principal joked as he addressed the school community: “If you need any transportation or logistics… or if you need to rent a crane, these are your people.” Presenting the ceremonial giant cheque to the school were T-Lane president Lauralee Germain, office manager Rhonda Knowles, and Jelaina Germain. T-Lane is putting out a challenge to all Garibaldi staff and students to do 20 acts of kindness between now and the end of the year.

Train rolls in today

It’s not unusual to see trains chugging through this community carrying freight and passengers to and fro. But to see a train, decked out in thousands of Christmas lights and hauling a car or two full of entertainers and celebrity well-wishers (including ol’ St. Nick) is still a little shocking. Tonight (Tuesday), the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will roll into the Port Haney station – across from the Billy Miner Pub – at 7:45 p.m. People are once again invited down to see the spectacle, to be entertained by carollers from the Port Haney Neighbourhood Change Initiative, and to listen to country performers Doc Walker and Miss Emily sing on the boxcar stage.

The holiday train has been raising food, money, and awareness for food banks in communities across Canada and the U.S. since 1999. Almost from the beginning, Maple Ridge has been one of the stops along that route, with all food and funds raised during the local visit staying in the community to help the Friends In Need Food Bank. Last year alone, the local food bank received more than $20,000. Spectators are asked to dress warm and bring a cash donation or non-perishable food items such as infant formula, canned meats, peanut butter, or canned vegetables and fruit to help those in need. Since the holiday train’s inception, it has helped raise $5.6 million and 2.45 million pounds of food.

Art gallery

Calendar inspired by nature Ensemble, showing local artwork, runs until Thursday at the Maple Ridge gallery. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

For nearly a month, the work of one of this community’s most artistic couples has sat among an exhibit at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery. Rik Watson and his partner Claire Louise Stephen – well known for their Art in the Swamp outdoor exhibit held annually each September at their home in Webster’s Corners – are two of the artists showing their work at the Ensemble 2012 show at the gallery. The exhibition opened with a reception on Nov. 24 and runs until this Thursday, Dec. 20. In the lead-up to the opening, artists were asked to submit work that suggests an ensemble. “This could be a shared theme, medium, or any series of works that suggests unity in its display,” explained curator Barbara Duncan. “The fact that the show includes all mediums tends to encourage a lot of variety and some unexpected and unusual items.” Duncan said the display format works well in the gallery inside The ACT. There are times at the gallery, she noted, where “small-

Rik Wilson’s silkscreen prints, Birds and Disasters: the 2012 Calendar. er works can be… overwhelmed by the large volume of space.” Visitors to the display have a limited time to check out Watson’s Birds and Disasters: the 2012 Calendar. The silkscreened prints, made with the assistance of Stephen, were hand painted, numbered, and signed by Watson. Watson said they are inspired by his love for birds, his fascination with the natural world, and the famous 19th-century print by Hokusai, “Great wave off the Coast of Kanagawa.” “I’ve always loved birds, ever since I was a young child,” Watson said. “I’ve always drawn or painted birds and I was always intrigued by geography and earth sciences.” He also draws inspiration

from, he said, “the forces of nature.” His prints pair 12 varieties of birds enveloped by weather events such as tsunamis and hailstorms. Stephen’s work in a corner of the gallery is a tribute to celebrated French actor and mime Marcel Marceau (1923-2007). “Every piece of art is subject to interpretation,” she said. “It’s all a game of charades and magic.” Stephen said her mother was “big into theatre” and that Marceau was a big influence on her life. “I like the way he was able to express, without even saying a word,” she said. “I find it intriguing and fascinating, and it’s happy. It’s nice to find a happy artist.” She and Watson have been contributors to the ensemble for a few years. “It’s a great little show,” Stephen said. “We’re always producing anyway.” “We always try to be part of the community,” Watson added. “We’ve got our yearly Art in The Swamp but this is another outlet.” The gallery, at The ACT, 11944 Haney Pl., is open Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and selected evenings. Many of these artworks offers visitors an affordable entry point to buying original work, Duncan said.

Humanitarian work

National accolades befall a Pitt Meadows pharmacist

Carol Hansen’s volunteer efforts overseas netted her an industry award.

Carol Hansen’s humanitarian work in developing countries was recognized when she received a charitable work award at the Commitment to Care & Service Awards Gala in Toronto recently. Hansen is a pharmacist at the Shoppers Drug Mart in Pitt Meadows. “The picture where I am jumping with the kids is one of my favourite pics,” she said of a recent trip to Kenya. “It reminds me how joyful these kids can be in spite of their circumstance.”

by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

C

arol Hansen has a different perspective whenever she’s back on home soil after helping impoverished people in developing countries. A pharmacist at the Shoppers Drug Mart in Pitt Meadows, Hansen understands that in some cases Canadians don’t realize that they live in a relatively luxurious world. For example: during her first week back to work in Canada from a humanitarian trip to Kenya, she listened to a customer grouse about the fact that the children’s antibiotic syrup didn’t come in any other flavour but strawberry. “You have to check yourself and remember, ‘you’re in Canada, now’,” Hansen said. “You’ve just been at a country where you’re shoving tablets down three-yearolds’ throats, so you have to kind

of have to think, ‘okay, you’re not in Africa anymore’.” Hansen said she goes to developing countries to help people in their circumstance, just as she helps customers at the local Shoppers Drug Mart with their situations. “Each experience is different, but each is meaningful and valuable,” she said. “I just have to remember not to have the same expectations in each culture.” If you ask Hansen what drives her to volunteer in Kenya, Haiti, Thailand, the Dominican Republic, and Guatemala, her answer is heartbreakingly simple: “People are poor. Children may die. I want to help.” And help she does.

In fact, Hansen’s humanitarian efforts earned her a charitable work award from the Pharmacy Practice and Drugstore Canada. A pharmacist for the past 32 years, Hansen has embarked on seven global humanitarian missions since 2003, providing pharmacy services to people whose lives are devastated by poverty, disease, and natural disasters. “It’s unbelievable,” she said. “When you go there, it’s reward

itself. When you’re sitting in a mud hut, eating food that somebody’s prepared for you over a fire in the ground you think, ‘Who gets to do this?’” Hansen has worked as a pharmacist in Kenya and Haiti, but in Guatemala and the Dominican Republic she was there as a chaperone, assisting in the work there but also keeping her team members healthy. In Thailand she worked to

improve the living situations for women who have been removed from their homes or shunned by their communities because they are HIV positive. Hansen said her strong faith compels her to do humanitarian work. “I’m a member of a church in Coquitlam, the Hillside Community Church, and that’s what we do,” she said. continued on page A27…

Pitt forward tries on a Spartans jersey Matt Ius returns to the Fraser Valley to join BCIHL’s Trinity Western University team.

Coach Rich Goulet received a Prime Minister’s Volunteer Award.

Goulet given volunteer award For more than 30 years Rich Goulet has served as head coach of the Pitt Meadows Marauders senior boys basketball team. On Friday, he was awarded one of 17 of the Prime Minister’s Volunteer Award. These accolades recognize exceptional contributions of volunteers, local businesses, and innovative not-for-profit organizations in improving the well-being of families and their communities. In the reasons cited for the Goulet receiving the award, he is called a “hands-on director with a titanic work ethic.” The press release also said that Goulet is famed locally for repainting the lines on the basketball court after each cleaning, and that he teaches by example that there is no task too small to do well – whether collecting garbage after a tournament or writing receipts. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

A forward from Pitt Meadows with a nose for the net will soon be playing on familiar ice. On Thursday, the Trinity Western University men’s hockey team added a major piece to its offensive puzzle with the signing of the former Langley Chiefs forward Matt Ius, who celebrates his 23rd birthday on Jan. 2. Along with his B.C. Hockey League experiences, Ius also played 129 games at the Western Hockey League level over five seasons. He joins the Spartans after spending the 2012 fall semester with Mount Royal in Calgary. Due to an injury, Ius played in just four games with the Cougars, registering three assists. “Matt definitely has a nose for the net, but he’s also an allaround player,” Spartans’ coach Dwayne Lowdermilk said. “To have a player like Matt coming to our team is a great boon for us for this season and the future.” Prior to his one semester stint with Mount Royal, the physical forward took a several-stop journey through the junior ranks from 2005 to 2011, playing out his career with seven different franchises, including the WHL’s Everett Silvertips, Swift Current

Hockey League playoff action in February 2011 at the Langley Events Centre. Broncos, Chilliwack Bruins, and Portland Winterhawks, and the BCHL’s Burnaby Express, Nanaimo Clippers, and Langley Chiefs. In his final year of junior hockey, 2010-11, Ius racked up 28 goals and 39 assists in 46 regular games with the Chiefs. He followed that up with six goals and 14 assists in 10 playoff games. After Langley was eliminated from the BCHL playoffs, Ius was

picked up by Portland and saw action in three regular season contests and 14 playoff games in the Winterhawks’ run to the WHL final. In his 129 regular season WHL appearances, Ius had eight goals, 14 assists and 49 penalty minutes. He added one goal and nine penalty minutes in 19 playoff games. In 84 games at the BCHL level, Ius combined for 40 goals, 56

assists and 89 penalty minutes. His 20-point effort in the 2011 playoffs was his lone post-season appearance in the BCHL. “The people who I talked to about Trinity Western had nothing but good things to say about it,” Ius said. “I’ve spent enough time away from my family so it was time to make a decision to come home. I saw an opportunity here to build a winner. I’m ready to be here for the next four years, get a degree, and win a couple of championships.” Ius is a player who will inject both energy and an offensive punch into a Spartans’ lineup that has scored a BCIHL league-low 29 goals in 11 games this year. “I’ll bring hard work and physical play, and hopefully, with that work, goals will come,” Ius said. With the Spartans, Ius will once again call the Langley Events Centre home, having played the 2010-11 season there with the Langley Chiefs. Ius will join former Chiefs teammate Tyler Miller, who is in his first year with the Spartans. With a 1-9-0-1 record, the Spartans sit in last place in the sixteam B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League. TWU resumes play Jan. 5 when the Spartans visit the Ian Stewart Complex to play the University of Victoria. The Spartans’ next home game is Friday, Jan. 11 against Thompson Rivers University WolfPack. Game time is 7 p.m.
