School lures devoted families Only 88 spots in a local outdoor school prompted some to camp out in Albion this weekend, to ensure their spot for sign up. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Families were camping in January all in an effort to get their children into a local environmental school. Parents who want their kids to attend the school district’s relatively new environmental school were camped out at Albion Fairgrounds this weekend to ensure they were at the front of the line when registration opened at 8:30 a.m. on Monday. One family had pitched a tent on Tuesday, and by Friday afternoon, they had been joined by four other families, ready to spend a cold and rainy weekend at the fairgrounds by Planet Ice. The Godfrey family was second in line, and they are hoping to get their son, Brady, into the program, and then hopefully their two younger sons would get priority to get in. “I feel this is the right choice for Brady,” said the boy’s mother Eira Godfrey, adding that he is a child who

Rebecca Kozol, Li Fryling, Jennifer Fitzpatrick, and Stacy Mulcahy, whose children and grandchildren attend the school, signed up families Monday. likes to be outdoors and is “very interested” in the environment. Because the Godfrey family is an “outdoorsy” family, having the father David Godfrey camping out all weekend isn’t a big hardship. But it’s “frustrating” that the program isn’t available to everyone who wants it, Eira said. “The outdoor environment... has a lot to teach us that you can’t learn in a conventional classroom,” David said. The environmental school, which is part of the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district is in its second year, and there are spaces for 88 students from kindergarten to Grade 8. Learning takes place in various

environments, much of it outdoors and there is no set classroom, something that appealed to Sarah-Jane Pepper who wants her daughter to attend the environmental school. “I think there’s so much more to learn in nature than from a textbook,” she said on Friday afternoon from her place in line. Clayton Maitland, who heads up the environmental school, said the new school concept is “exciting” but it has been challenging as well. The next step will be to see if the environmental school can be done at the high school level, and whether pieces of it can be integrated into more conventional schools. “It’s not for everyone – some families want a conventional system, some want Montessori, and others want [the environmental school],” Maitland said. Parents who already have kids in the environmental school came out over the weekend to bring food and refreshments to those waiting in the line. “It’s stressful – we’ve all been there,” said Stacy Mulcahy whose two sons attend the program. They wanted to encourage those in line, answer questions they might have about the school and offer some support.

Friends and family of a Grade 12 Westview Secondary student are holding a get-together early next month aimed at showing the teen there are decent people in this community, and saying thanks to some who came to her aid during her recent kidnapping and beating. “What a brave little girl,” said Jennifer Strain, a family friend of the 17-year-old girl who was abducted outside Fox’s Reach Pub on Jan. 19. She was approached by a man carrying jumper cables, who – she was led to believe – needed help getting his car started. Instead, she found herself staring down the end of a gun barrel being forced to drive her own car to a secluded area of town, where she was physically assaulted and beaten. She eventually managed to escape her abductor and run David Fleugel to a nearby home where a RCMP inspector couple let her in and called police. “We are so grateful to the couple who opened the door. The family wants to thank them,” Strain said, noting presentations of gratitude will be made at the upcoming “celebration of sorts.” In addition to the semi-private event being held Feb. 10, Strain said other friends and family are in the process of organizing a fundraiser in this girl’s honour. The money is expected to go towards a new car, since her vehicle was ruined during the abduction. “We want her to focus on graduating and knowing that there are good people in the world,” Strain said. In the meantime, a 25-year-old Surrey man was charged last week with seven criminal counts, including kidnapping and assault, in connection with the violent attack. Ian James William Campbell has been remanded in custody until he appears in Port Coquitlam court Thursday.

Labour negotiations

Teachers ready to talk

Educators will be negotiating a new contract this spring. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The president of the local teachers’ union was surprised by a provincial government plan aimed at keeping labour peace for 10 years just as the parties had come to an understanding on the terms of negotiations. George Serra, president of the Maple Ridge Teachers’ Association, was worried last week when the provincial government came out with a plan on Thursday, called Working Together for Students, designed to bring labour peace for 10 years. The plan is designed to bring “longterm stability for students and families” and improve interaction between the government and the teachers’ union. The plan came as a surprise for the teachers’ union as they had been working for several months on a bargaining framework with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA).

“That is why we’re extremely puzzled by Christy Clark’s announcement today,” Serra said on Thursday, “because it seems a bit at odds with what BCPSEA and BCTF have been working on.” Serra was worried on Thursday that the BCPSEA might not ratify the framework because of this new document. The teachers’ last contract ended in June 2011 and throughout the 2011/2012 school year there was job action ranging from teachers not meeting with administration to strike days. A last-minute negotiated contract was agreed to in June 2012, but it ends this June. “I think everyone hopes that this round of bargaining will be different only because I don’t think anyone was happy with a year of job action, a threat of legislation, and then some movement at the end when a mediator was involved,” Serra said. Both BCPSEA and BCTF ratified the framework this weekend. The framework agreement puts into place common data to be used in negotiations and a mediator from the beginning of the process.

Golden Ears park

Public asked to comment

An open house this Thursday lets the public comment on a draft park plan. A group of horseback riders took to the trails on Sunday ahead of an open house being held this week on the future of the Golden Ears Provincial Park. This Thursday evening, there will be an open house on a draft management plan for the provincial park in northeast Maple Ridge. “The main reason this ride was put together was to publicize the fact that equestrian riders do in fact make use of the trail system in Golden Ears park,”

said Barb Jones of the Haney Horsemen. They were joined by members of the Mission Horse Club who also use the trails. The draft plan gives a vision for the park, identifies the features of the park, and talks about management issues. The original plan was developed in 1963 and updated in 1976. More information about the draft plan can be found at www.env. gov.bc.ca/ bcparks/planning. The open house runs on Thursday, Jan. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m.in the Fraser Room of the Maple Ridge Library, #130-22470 Dewdney Trunk Rd.

Grants

Kiwanis supports youth, seniors Several thousand dollars in funding was given out to local nonprofit organizations.

TOWN HALL MEETING

Thursday Feb 7th, 7pm - 9pm Golden Ears Curling Club

An open forum discussion on the current state & future direction of our association. We would like to hear your thoughts, ideas & concerns

by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Several community groups were the recipients of grants last week thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Golden Ears. This included local high schools, which each received $500 toward their dry grad celebrations. The Kiwanis club focuses a lot of its energy on youth, said the local president Andre Lafleur, and the dry grad money is meant to “keep kids from killing themselves” as they finish high school. The Kiwanis Club of Golden Ears can be seen at many events throughout the community, raising money by selling hotdogs and refreshments, and they especially like to go to school events. “We basically will support any school and do what we can,” Lafleur said. In addition to supporting students and youth, for example, for dry grad celebrations, the club also reaches out to seniors and nonprofit organizations. At last week’s event, the Kiwanis club also gave $6,422 to the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation for a piece of respiratory equipment. The Meals on Wheels program run by

DPAC chair Kellie Marquet was at a Kiwanis meeting last week to pick up cheques for dry grad celebrations from Kiwanis president Andre Lafleur. Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Community Services received a grant of $1,500 as did the Friends In Need Food Bank. The North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association receivef $1,500 to buy a shed and a panic button. In addition, the non-profit WomenCare Pregnancy Centre received $500 for its infant and mother program.

The funds given out last Tuesday evening were from a gaming grant. The Kiwanis also raise money by selling hanging baskets at the Ridge Meadows Home Show – last year they raised $11,000. The club brings their trailer to a variety of community events, for example, Pitt Meadows Day, Canada Day celebrations, and Country Fest. The club is looking for new members. For information, contact Andre Lafleur at 778-344-5289.

Bylaws

Tree bylaw to be revisited

An environmental review is expected to come to council in February. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

Upgrades are needed for Maple Ridge’s tree bylaw to improve standards on how trees are removed and to consider if some trees need to be preserved. Review of the Maple Ridge bylaw will be part of a larger environmental review, expected to come to council in February. But Maple Ridge council heard a report from District staff last week about the

current bylaw that’s in place, which first came into being in 1989 and was applied along the Fraser River escarpment. In 1993, the bylaw was updated to protect trees within nine metres of watercourses and to protect Shady Lane. In 2000, the bylaw was expanded to regulate tree cutting within 15 metres of a watercourse, slopes steeper than 30 per cent, and in urban and rural developments. In his presentation, district environmental planner Rod Stott noted that there is a lack of preservation for older or “unique” trees in heritage areas, trees in vulnerable aquifers, and along property lines that are forested.

Federal politics

Electoral boundary changes drop Mission from riding

Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge will constitute one riding, representing about 100,000 people. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The federal riding of Pitt MeadowsMaple Ridge-Mission will be reduced by one community, if changes to election boundaries go through, becoming the riding of Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge. Tweaks to an original plan put out last

summer keeps Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge intact as one riding, dropping Mission, which will be included in a new riding called Mission-Matsqui. The federal government proposed changes to electoral boundaries last summer that would have included a portion of Port Coquitlam – Citadel Heights – and would have cut the riding at 240th Street, splitting Maple Ridge residents into two ridings. The eastern portion of Maple Ridge would have been in the Mission-Matsqui riding. The new proposal, announced on

Monday, divides the riding at 287th Street instead of at 240th Street. “We’re pleased it’s Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows intact,” said Mike Murray, constituency assistant for Randy Kamp, the MP who represents Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, and Mission. The goal is to have the proposed changes go through by the summer before Parliament breaks for summer, Murray said. The electoral boundary changes added six ridings to British Columbia. The changes were made to keep ridings at about 100,000 residents in each. Kamp resides in Maple Ridge.

Mike Murray is the constituency assistant for Randy Kamp.

Our View

Mirroring one girl’s kindness

There’s scum of the earth, and in complete juxtaposition there’s the general populace of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows – who continue to impress. Amid the horror, shock, and fear that surrounded the random abduction and brutal assault of a Maple Ridge teen on Jan. 19 – and all that has since come to light about the suspected assailant and his life of crime – it’s exciting to trumpet some good news. In fact, it’s incredibly uplifting to hear that this community – once again – has chosen to step up and help. Determined to make something good come out of something so evil, her family, friends, and even complete strangers are uniting for the sake of a 17-year-old Westview student. First, the public overwhelmed police with calls when asked for tips about the kidnapping and beating. Now, some folks are organizing a special tribute event for her at Fox’s Reach – likely this weekend – while other friends and family are in the thick of organizing a fundraiser – date to be announced. Money collected will help this young lady replace her car, which was used and then ruined during the abduction and assault. All these people care and want to help the young woman overcome this trauma. While she’ll probably never eradicate all the memories of this heinous attack – and there’s probably not much any of us can do to help heal the emotional scares – it has to help her knowing so many people want to help. Of course, such an outpouring of support should come as no surprise. When someone is in need, this community invariable rallies to their aid. In this case, the community is following this girl’s lead. In the true spirit of kindness that she demonstrated prior to her attack – by offering to help an alleged distressed man get his car going – those wanting to be Good Samaritan are finding some creative ways to offer aid. Kudos. – R.H.

Justice

Witnesses deserve portection

Dear Editor, CrimeStoppers runs a commercial with a punch line saying: “You stay anonymous, criminals don’t.” So why cannot witnesses stay anonymous in court? The nonsense that the accused has the right to face their accuser was all right 50plus years ago, but now this gives them the “right” to harass or worse, with near total immunity. Our criminal ‘justice’ system screams out for some serious revision. Sixty-seven years ago, Igor Gouzenko worked as a code clerk at the Russian embassy in Ottawa, he defected and gave the western world a huge amount of valuable information. He testified behind a screen or wore a hood. It was of critical importance that his identity remain unknown, for it was believed the KGB would assassinate him. No doubt. Why is it that a witness does not have

the same rights and protection Igor had? Perhaps it is that we just don’t count. It is a mortal cinch that many will not go into court to testify against some of the vicious, not-so-poor white trash who will maybe take them out. And even if that does not happen, harassment can and likely will occur, and physical abuse is certainly not unknown. People are not too eager to put themselves or the well being of their families on the line in order to testify against some rotter. Our courts are woefully ineffectual for real punishment for serious crimes. Punishment all too often does not happen in any meaningful way. Many of us have little trust or respect for our so-called justice system. Giving a witness a new identity may sound like a good idea, but the fact is, it is not. One will not be able to have any contact with family and friends if relocated. Where’s the justice in this for the witness? Robert W. Stirling, Maple Ridge

Smart Meters

Installers considered trespassers

Dear Editor, Following is an open letter to Gary Murphy, chief project officer, Smart Metering Program: Dear sir, We are in receipt of your letter, dated Jan. 4, telling us that you will be coming soon to install a Smart Meter on our house. Please do not bother. We have signs posted and photos taken advising that anyone in our yard and touching our meter will be considered trespassing. We will not permit the installer entrance.

If BC Hydro truly believes that Smart Meters are the best way to deliver “safe, cost-effective” electricity, they would not have requested the government remove oversight of this program from the BCUC, and they would have presented documented, independent information to taxpayers, proving the meters are safe for use, instead of using intimidation tactics to require people to allow them. Our position is maintained on the basis of our concern

Pitt Meadows

Critical letters objectionable

Dear Editor, Why you print Archie Blankers’s letters is beyond me. While his opinions merit discussion, I find his comments pertaining to Mayor Deb Walters to be disrespectful and unnecessary. The Mayor is a community leader, and only a part of the team that manages Pitt Meadows for the benefit of all citizens. She casts the deciding vote in the event of a tie on council business, based on information provided by staff and the public. She is far from being the “Queen” dictator that Mr. Blankers would have you believe. She is a former “super volunteer” and Citizen of the Year. She is a role model who is approachable and giving of her time. Mr. Blankers’s attempts to portray her as a villain are despicable. Ken Ogden, Maple Ridge

that the installation of a wireless Smart Meter and consequential emission of microwave radiofrequency emissions at or about our home will cause harm to ourselves and our family. On May 31, 2011, the World Health Organization recognized that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are a Class 2B possible human cancer risk. Wireless Smart Meter emissions fall under this classification of emissions and risk. After much research, we have decided that we are not comfortable with 24/7 exposure to EMFs in every aspect of our lives. Some places we can’t avoid it, but we certainly can in our own home. In our opinion, it was BC Hydro’s responsibility to discuss every aspect of this program before forcing it down our throats. After the Liberals are gone and the NDP become government in May, we are positive they will introduce an opt-out option for people who have concerns like we do. Because of that, we will not permit you to enter our yard at this time to change the meter. Lorne and Cheryl Baron, Maple Ridge

Environment

Metro needs help to stop smoke

Dear Editor, It is the bleakest truth that wood smoke is harmful to human health [Smoke filling neighbourhood, Jan. 10 Letters, TIMES], especially the wood smoke emissions in neighbourhoods, as they can penetrate dwellings, even with windows closed, and place every occupant at risk. There is no way to escape wood smoke in a neighbourhood where wood-burning takes place; people have no choice but to breathe this poison. Many respiratory diseases are linked to wood smoke exposure. To participate in speeding up the elimination of harmful wood smoke emissions in your neighbourhood, call Metro Vancouver and voice your support. Metro’s

Environment & Parks Committee, as well as Fraser Health and Coastal Health need to be addressed. Metro has been for quite some time intending to rid neighbourhoods of wood smoke, but needs the support of the general public. Elimination of wood smoke emissions in neighbourhoods needs to also include fire pits and the use of wood chips and other wood derivatives, as used on/in barbecues and food smokers, as all of those burning devices produce toxic fumes that can be harmful to people’s health.

Flu shots

Florence lost her way

F

lorence Nightingale may be plotting to kill us… There was a time when people like Nightingale were a model of our public servants and a matter of pride. But in our culture, sometime during the 1970s, public service began to become a matter of entitlement. When I was young, my mother, who was a registered nurse, became a member of the opening crew for the new Maple Ridge Hospital. She was truly a Nightingale of the maternity ward until the early ’70s. I remember the night she came home from her shift and realized that, because of the union agreements which had just been signed with the new Dave Barrett NDP government, two practical nurses on her shift were making more money than she was. And more importantly, she was personally legally responsible for their actions. Bernice Gehring and other union organizers changed my mother from Florence Nightingale to Che Guevara. The industrialized union leaders, losing their clientele, switched to the public service. So, instead of the

concept of serving the public, they moved to an entitled group with incredible benefits which are not sustainable. What amazes me the most is that the nurses’ union my mother helped form has degenerated to a level where nurses are allowed to potentially kill. According to Dr. Bonny Henri of the BC Immunization Program, inoculating health-care workers, especially those who have contact with immune-deficient patients, is a no-brainer. So the health districts asked everyone who was dealing with high-risk patients to get a flu shot or wear a mask, and the CEOs of the health districts attempted to make it a condition of employment for all health-care workers. BC Nurses’ spokesperson Debra McPherson objected. The Minister of Health capitulated. During the past 20 years we have averaged between 5,000 and 49,000 deaths, North America-wide, from the flu. This year, the estimate is 50,000-plus people. Our health districts pleaded and eventually threatened the health-care workers to get a flu shot or wear a mask. McPherson said, “But it has to be a

matter of choice.” Are you kidding? I’ve heard some nurses say that the flu is a way of culling the weakest among us and saving taxpayers money on health care. Dr. Henri said that is sick, because the worst way you want to die is with the flu: “It is not a pleasant way to pass.” While most health-care providers recognize this reality, and compliance has jumped from 30 to 70 per cent, my question to the other 30 per cent is: “Are you nuts?” My mother would never understand why these people would not want to protect their patients. Apparently union members are allowed to recklessly bring viruses in to workplace without recourse. At what point does it become manslaughter or negligent homicide?

Ridge Meadows Hospice Society has a new executive director, Mark Vosper. Vosper is the former branch manager of the Maple Ridge BC SPCA. “It’s a similar job. I’m still helping a very worthy cause in the community, one which unfortunately everyone will need to use sooner or later.” Vosper called his new position “a mixed blessing” because he loved working at the SPCA and said he will continue to support it. He left the SPCA on good terms with a nice parting gift, he said, and no, it was not a puppy or kitten. Vosper’s new colleagues at the hospice society are Dawn Burnett (left), Kristina Murray, and Lindsey Willis. Sylver McLaren/TIMES

Flames ride rollercoaster of fortunes Ridge Meadows beat Abbotsford, lost in overtime to Delta, then fell to Grandview.

by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Looking at their most recent stretch of action as a whole, there were a lot of positives for the Ridge Meadows Flames. The Flames upset one Pacific Junior Hockey League powerhouse last Wednesday, then took another to overtime on Friday to earn a single point. Ridge Meadows’ weekend ended on a down note with a 6-2 loss Sunday to the Grandview Steelers at Burnaby Winter Club.

In the loss to Grandview, the Steelers outscored the Flames 3-1 during the second period to take a 5-2 lead into the final stanza. Grandview then added a third-period goal. Delta Ice Hawks 5, Flames 4 (OT) The Flames had some momentum going into their game versus Grandview, having come off a hard-fought overtime loss to the Delta Ice Hawks at Planet Ice. Delta’s Michael Olson-Eyre scored the OT winner 2:53 into the extra session. Ridge Meadows’ Travis Oddy and Ryan Lisowsky staked the home team to a 2-0 lead after the first period. The Ice Hawks owned a second period in which they outshot the Flames 14-6 and scored four unanswered goals.

But the Flames rallied in the third period with goals from Connor Redmond and Christopher Nakamura to tie the game at 4-4 and sent it into overtime. Flames 7, Abbotsford Pilots 3 Down 3-2 after the first period, the Flames took over. Ridge Meadows scored three unanswered goals in the middle frame, then tacked on two more tallies in the third period to run away with the game. Bissett, Michael Nolan, and Adam Bartsch all had two-goal games for the home team. Redmond added a single for the Flames. The Flames are back in action Thursday when they visit the Mission City Outlaws.

Gruelling Pitt Meadows race to hit roads A local cycling tradition will continue on April 7. The 2013 edition of Barry’s Roubaix, a road cycling race modelled after the legendary European Spring Classics, is set to descend upon the roads and dikes of Pitt Meadows on Sunday, April 7 – the same day as the Paris-Roubaix race in France. “Paris-Roubaix is famous for its long and arduous sections of cobblestones, which

we try to mimic by running our course along the rough dike. Pitt Meadows is also often battered by winds, which will challenge the racers, just like in the real ParisRoubaix,” said race organizer Barry Lyster. Lyster makes the Pitt Meadows version of the event more accessible to a wider range of riders than the French version, however. “Our novice category riders will only have to complete about 40 kilometres and not the 250 kilometres the ProTour guys are

doing in France,” he said. The elite men will contest a 120-kilometre race. The Pitt Meadows race is held on a 10-kilometre loop featuring roughly five kilometres of the Pitt Meadows dike system along with rural farm roads. The course contains no significant elevation gain, but the substantial gravel sector takes its toll over multiple laps. Plus, the area can be subject to game-changing winds. This race favours strong riders, but the smaller wily competitors should

MAPLE RIDGE

not be discounted. Barry’s Roubaix is also offering a U17 youth category, giving young riders an opportunity to get a taste of what has become a spring tradition of its own in Pitt Meadows. Early bird registration is now open online at www.karelo.com for a discounted rate of $40 until Jan. 31. For more information visit: www.localride.ca/ wp/2013/01/22/barrys-roubaix2013-info/.
