RCMP deal a new era for cities Contract promises better cost control, accountability by Je f f Nage l Black Press
Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
Trashed Empty beer cans and trash litter the skate park at Thomas Haney secondary on Thursday, while bicycle tire tubes and shoes hang from tree branches. Spring break ends this weekend as students return to school Monday.
Federal and provincial ministers signed a new 20-year RCMP contract Wednesday, ushering in what B.C. cities hope will be a new relationship with Mounties and better control over spiraling police costs. City councils, which got their ﬁrst look at the full text last week, have until the end of April to ratify the agreement. Any city that doesn’t like it can terminate its RCMP service and form a municipal police force or partner with an existing one. Cities will also get a two-year, optout option going forward and a review of the contract is promised every ﬁve years. “We are creating far more transparency and accountability in policing,” B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said Wednesday at a signing ceremony. See RCMP, p3
Teachers to vote on provincial ban Class in session as normal come Monday, but spring sports, grad ceremonies likely affected by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter B.C. teachers are considering a ban on all extracurricular volunteering, the provincial teachers’ union announced Wednesday, and that could mean an end to spring sports and grad ceremonies. While Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows
public school teachers voted to voluntarily withdraw extracurricular activities at a special general meeting two weeks ago, the provincial ban would be mandatory for union members. “Our options really became limited once we became legislated [back-to-work],” said Maple Ridge Teachers’ Association president George Serra. “No wants to do this, but we have to think long term, and Bill 22 will hurt kids way more than three months without extracurricular activities will.” Bill 22 is the Liberal government’s backto-work legislation, passed last week. While the bill provides for mediation, which teachers have been asking for, issues
like class size, composition, and the government’s net-zero mandate of freezing public sector wages can’t be negotiated according to the bill. B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert said the mediation process amounts to the government ask- Serra ing teachers to play a game of hockey without sticks. “Government can rethink this legislation,
it can take the higher road,” she said. The BCTF will be launching a legal challenge of Bill 22, which it contends violates the human rights of teachers by denying them freedom of assembly and freedom of speech. In the meantime, classes will resume as normal on Monday in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows after the two-week spring break, and teachers will be preparing year-end report cards, Serra stressed. But beyond that, parents shouldn’t expect teachers to volunteer their time while the government is forcing them back to work and attempting to strip their contract. See Teachers, p5

Municipalities pleased with ‘accountability’
Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
Sgt. Dale Somerville, with the Ridge Meadows RCMP traffic section, and Tracy Crawford, with MADD Canada, show a visor police will be handing out to drivers at drinking and driving checks in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows for the call 911 campaign.
‘Call 911 if you spot drunk driver’ MADD brings campaign to Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter
campaign that urges people to pick up the phone and call 911 when they see a drunk driver is coming to Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. “Report Impaired Drivers” billboards, funded by Mother Against Drunk Driving, will soon dot both communities, helping police catch impaired drivers before they crash. People don’t realize it’s a tool they have at their ﬁngertips, said Tracy Crawford, manager of MADD’s B.C.-Yukon chapter. “It’s proactive way rather than waiting for the next tragedy to happen,” added Crawford, who pitched the public education campaign to councillors in Pitt Meadows on Tuesday. Research from the 74 Canadian communities with the program shows that, on average,
calls to 911 to report suspected impaired drivers doubled in the ﬁrst year of it. Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, the ﬁrst city in B.C. to pilot MADD’s campaign, saw a 30 per cent increase in impaired driving charges after billboards and bus shelter signs went up in 2009. “We are getting results,” said Crawford. “And now we are hoping to expand the program.” In B.C., impaired driving kills an average of two people and injures 60 every week. Nationally, drunk drivers kill an average of four people and injure 207 every day. Ridge Meadows RCMP are eager to get the signs up in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, where road side memorials for people killed in drunk driving crashes are common. In 2011, six constables from Ridge Meadows trafﬁc section nabbed and charged 79 impaired drivers from Pitt Meadows alone. Last year, there were 93 calls to dispatch reporting suspected impaired drivers, of those 26 drivers were stopped. “I don’t see any negatives to this,” said Sgt. Dale Somer-
ville, who heads Ridge Meadows trafﬁc section. “It helps police do their job. A third of all trafﬁc fatalities in the Lower Mainland are alcohol-related and this could actually reduce that number.” As part of the campaign, police will track the number of calls made to 911, the number of vehicles intercepted and charges laid. The campaign will also educate drivers on how to spot a drunk driver, but will also mean a change in the way reports about drunk drivers are handled by 911 dispatchers, who will now make those calls a priority.
“So many people think a drunk driver is not an emergency, but that’s a crash waiting to happen, a fatality waiting to happen,” said Somerville. Pitt Meadows will be the ﬁrst city in Metro Vancouver to launch the campaign and the second in B.C. “Being a long-time resident and coach, there have been two or three kids who I’ve personally known who have died tragically,” Coun. Dave Murray said before council unanimously supported a decision to support MADD’s campaign. “I think even one loss is too much.”
Signs of impaired driving: • driving unreasonably fast, slow or at an inconsistent speed; • drifting in and out of lanes; • tailgating and changing lanes frequently; • making exceptionally wide turns; • changing lanes or passing without sufficient clearance; • overshooting or stopping well before stop signs or stop lights; • disregarding signals and lights; • approaching signals or leaving intersections too quickly or slowly; • driving without headlights, failing to lower high beams or leaving turn signals on; • driving with windows open in cold or inclement weather. – MADD Canada
RCMP from front “For the ﬁrst time we will have the ability to question costs, to look at breakdowns of costs, to say do we really need to have those kinds of things take place in British Columbia.” Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows will work out detailed costs in the next few weeks. The net impact will be under one per cent, said Paul Gill, general manager of corporate and ﬁnancial services for the District of Maple Ridge. Gill, who previously sat as a civic observer in the RCMP contract talks, believes the agreement is the best B.C. could get, given the economic times. “You know the federal government is cutting back in a number of areas. For us to have retained their ﬁnancial contribution in these times, from my perspective, is a signiﬁcant achievement.” At the heart of the deal is a new B.C. local government contract management committee with 10 reps from cities which are promised much more hands-on control of spending changes, instead of just an advisory role. It’s still unclear, however, whether cities can ultimately refuse to pay costs they object to. But Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, the current civic observer, said the hope is RCMP decisions will be shaped by civic input well before that point. Municipalities will also be privy to the RCMP’s ﬁve-year ﬁnancial plans so they can better prepare for cost changes. Previously, cities had no say on national programs, and were given only a one-year planning horizon on costs, and had no ability to review programs, detachment administration levels or challenge service delivery methods. Improvements in the deal include an agreement that Ottawa will cover 30 per cent of the costs of integrated policing teams such as the gang task force and IHIT, up from 10 per cent now. No change was made in the overall costsharing formula, which makes cities with populations more than 15,000 pay 90 per cent of costs, while smaller cities shoulder 70 per cent. Police services will cost Pitt Meadows around $4.3 million in 2012, while Maple Ridge will fork out about $16 million. Both municipalities are pleased that the contract stresses accountability. “Just to be able to have a say in what goes on in our municipality with the RCMP is huge,” said Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters. “Having said that, we have a good rapport with the RCMP in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge and a lot of other municipalities don’t have that. We are fortunate to have that.” Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said the contract was a long-time coming. B.C. last fall threatened to withdraw from the RCMP and start its own provincial force after the federal government issued an ultimatum to sign the contract or lose the Mounties in 2014. “I think we are going to look back in a few years and say this is all right,” said Daykin. – with ﬁles from Monisha Martins

Car Care Deadly pet virus making the rounds in Ridge with Cyril Barry
CARS & WIVES TALES... As the owner of an independent automotive repair shop I’ve seen a lot of changes to the automobile and the misconceptions of the people that own them. Most people drive some kind of vehicle, so sooner or later the conversation turns to cars and it amazes me what some people think. So I decided to set the record straight on some of the most common wives tales when it comes to most vehicles. • Fuel and octane rating: Octane rating in all fuels is not how well the fuel explodes, in fact it’s the rating given to resistance to explode or burn. The higher the octane rating the harder the engine has to work to ﬁre or explode the fuel in an average engine. • New cars require less maintenance: New cars are built more compact and efﬁciently, this is true. However this is only a beneﬁt for the manufacturer, as a car owner you will go to the repair shop just as often, if not more. New vehicles are very complicated and expensive to purchase and repair. But they sure are fun to drive and own... • AirCare is a money grab: AirCare forces people to tune the engine and emissions systems of their vehicle once a year. This in turn keeps your vehicle running properly, burns less fuel which saves you money, and helps keep BC green. Well maintained vehicles do not fail AirCare, so get off your band wagon you whiners, AirCare saves you money! • Auto repair shops charge too much, I’ll get the guy in the backyard to ﬁx my car: Today’s vehicles are far too complicated to entrust to someone who is not thoroughly trained and experienced in modern repair techniques. The equipment and tools required to correctly diagnose and repair vehicles these days are expensive and constantly changing. Every day in our shop we experience repair situations which require the use of a computer system that is directly connected to the manufacturer’s via the internet. These include repair procedures pertaining to average cars with seemingly average problems. Without this information on hand we cannot offer the level of service and expertise required to repair today’s modern cars on a regular basis. Does the average back yard mechanic have this information? The answer to that question is that most, if not all of them don’t even know that it exists, not to mention countless other important details. • I’ll just go online & ﬁgure out what’s wrong with my vehicle: I hear this almost daily now and it’s a problem all professional trades people have to put up with. Remember this, there is a ton of information on the web with a forum on just about anything. But it’s not all good information, in fact a lot of it is incorrect, and it takes a professional to know the difference. The internet is a great place for information, especially when you know very little about a subject, like your vehicle. But it can lead you down the wrong path real quick.
Four dogs killed after contracting parvovirus by P hil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter The spread of the canine parvovirus recently has killed four dogs in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows while another four have survived the disease. “Parvovirus is a killer, especially with puppies,” Maple Ridge branch manager Mark Vosper said Thursday. The virus is highly contagious and one of the deadliest diseases for dogs, the SPCA said in a release. However, dog owners can reduce the chances of that by ensuring their pets get their annual vaccines, which include prevention for parvovirus. People not picking up after their dogs is one of the main causes of the diseases because

Lorea McCready walks her four-year-old golden retriever Sammie along a dike at the north end of 216th Street Thursday. pets that follow can ingest the dog feces by either walking in it or getting some on their nose or fur. The virus isn’t considered harmful to people. If the feces isn’t picked up, it can live for months outside, while indoors, the parvovirus can live on carpets, rugs, furniture and even food containers. Washing with bleach helps, says the SPCA.
The virus attacks the digestive system causing strongsmelling diarrhea with traces of blood and mucous. Vomiting can also be a symptom while both can lead to heart failure or dehydration. Dogs can also lose their appetites and be listless. Two of the four dogs died directly from the disease, while the other two were euthanized because of the severity of the
symptoms. Vosper pointed out that picking up waste from your pet dog is a bylaw requirement. “The main source of the virus is from feces of infected dogs, so we cannot stress enough how important it is for pet guardians to pick up after their dogs,” he said in a release. Many of the riverfront and dike trails in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows used to be littered with dog waste from people who didn’t pick up after their pets. But people now seem to be picking up after their dogs in those areas, said Kelly Swift, parks and recreation services general manager. The district also provides doggie bags on the dike trails. “I think the culture has changed. I wouldn’t say that it’s perfect,” Swift said. The district is getting lots of positive feedback from the offleash areas, she added.

Teachers would have to comply with ban Teachers from front “What we’re telling teachers is not start anything new. If they are in the middle of a season or a production, that’s ﬁne,” Serra said. “Sports and grad ceremonies will likely be affected, and it will be up to parents and administrators to keep them going.” However, should the provincial extracurricular ban be adopted by a vote in mid-April, local teachers would have to comply with the ban. “It would be no different that crossing the picket line,” said Serra. “They would be subject to sanction and there could be suspensions. “But that’s in the extreme. We generally don’t do that.” Teachers across the province will vote April 17 and 18 to adopt the BCTF’s “action plan,” which also leaves open the possibility of an illegal strike. However, that would require a second vote by B.C. teachers. Serra said there was some support at the BCTF’s annual general meeting last weekend for an immediate illegal walkout, but the majority opted to move to ban extracurricular volunteering ﬁrst, then escalate their protest of Bill 22. “The contract stripping hasn’t happened yet, and that will be the trigger point,” Serra said. An illegal walkout would mean stiff penalties for teachers. Bill 22 includes ﬁnes of $475 per day for individual teachers, $2,500 per day for union ofﬁcers, and a mini-

Should teachers eventually vote to walk off the job in an illegal strike this time around, he said it will be up to each individual teacher to decide whether or not to support an illegal action, regardless of the union vote. “That’s a decision I made personally, and that’s a decision every teacher has to make.”

Fish have value
The alarm has been raised that the federal government is about to turn the clock back on ﬁsheries protection by about 35 years. According to documents released by retired ﬁsheries biologist Otto Langer and introduced in the House of Commons by New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly last week, the government plans to strip habitat protection for ﬁsh in Section 35 of the Fisheries Act, effectively making creek and stream protection a thing of the past. Documents produced by Langer indicate the government plans to remove a ban against activity that results in the “harmful alteration, disruption or disruption or destruction of ﬁsh habitat” and replacing it with a ban on activity that has an “adverse effect on a ﬁsh of economic, cultural or ecological value.” While on the surface, it looks like the changes would protect ﬁsh, it’s not clear how when ﬁsh rely on a healthy environment, ecosystem or habitat to thrive. If it can’t be proven that a species of ﬁsh has special value, then can the habitat – creek, river or stream – be legally destroyed? No ofﬁcial word has come that the Stephen Harper government might back down from these changes. On the contrary, Fisheries Minister Keith Ashﬁeld has criticized the current act, saying it inhibits the normal activities of Canadian property owners. Indeed, many have heard stories of property owners who were prevented from subdividing because there’s a ditch in the way that sometimes has ﬁsh in it. And there are times when it’s hard to understand the “economic” or “environmental” value of a creek or stream but lack of knowledge or understanding about how our watersheds work is the reason most of them were paved over, culverted or diverted in the 1960s and 1970s, leaving us low ﬁsh returns today. Ignoring for a moment the secretive way the government appears to be moving on this matter, the idea that ﬁsh, and the rest of the planet, can be altered unless an economic argument can be made to save it, is short-sighted at best. At worst, it ignores the web of life that even the youngest pre-schooler understands when they marvel at the abundant life in the tiny creek ﬂowing in their neighbourhood. – Black Press

B.C. is open for work around streams L
egislation to protect ﬁsh was headed for death by a thousand cuts, but the Harper government couldn’t wait. It delivered the coup de grace last week with its secret plan to erase habitat protection from the Fisheries Act. The scheme, conAlong the Fraser tained in a governJack Emberly ment memo, was leaked to retired ﬁsheries biologist Otta Langar, who issued a press release. Prosecution of offenders under Section 35 of the Fisheries Act will soon be history. Here’s the wording as it stands today: “No person shall carry on any work or undertaking that results in harmful alteration, disruption, or destruction of ﬁsh habitat.” Strong talk, ﬁnes to $1 million, law with teeth. Key words in amended Section 35 (1) will make enforcement irrelevant, and let industry know B.C. is open for unimpeded work around streams. It will read: “No person shall carry on work, undertaking, or activity, other than ﬁshing that results in adverse effect on a ﬁsh of economic, cultural or ecological value.” Economic, the ﬁrst value, will now decide the fate of ﬁsh and habitat. We shouldn’t be surprised. A few years ago, the DFO had these words inserted
uestion of the week:
into the Species at Risk Act to escape a costly habitat remediation program for declining Cultus Lake sockeye. In DFO opinion, the endangered species no longer had economic value. In June 2010, Canadian National Geographic noted “an obscure clause” (economic value again) in the Fisheries Act that let mining companies transform “schedule 2” lakes (new words and category) into tailing ponds. But, when it came to Fish Lake, near Williams Lake, the Dene, with values other than economic, shouted, ‘no way.’ Protecting habitat is an aversion for a government that plans to slash the DFO budget by 33 per cent before 2013. Fisheries ofﬁcers at the Cohen Inquiry (June 2011) said “catastrophic” cuts will make it impossible for DFO to fulﬁll its protection mandate. Is that the plan? “To date,” says Langan, “the Harper government has shown little regard for the protection of the environment, and over the past few years has supervised the almost total elimination of enforcement of the habitat protection and the pollution provisions of the Canada Fisheries Act. In 2008, there were only two convictions ... in all of Canada. They [ﬁsheries ofﬁcers] were told not to enforce the act. That came out in Cohen Inquiry.” Ring a bell? In Maple Ridge, we waited a year for DFO to investigate 2009 complaints about thousands of dead fry in the North Alouette, and machinery digging in the river. I struggled with DFO reluctance to
Should all Metro Vancouver bridges be tolled? Yes: 34% – No: 66% (62 votes)
interview witnesses, collect ﬁsh for testing, or accept the ones I’d frozen for them. When ofﬁcers ﬁnally showed up on site, one insisted she was not “investigating,” but only “inspecting.” Words erased, others added to DFO dictionaries. Now, even the word ﬁsh is redeﬁned to suit the government’s purpose. When the Fisheries Act was born in 1868, a ﬁsh was any cold-blooded, aquatic vertebrate with a caudal ﬁn (Darwin). No means test. But, the new Section 35 says ﬁsh are the small, elite group with “economic” value. Pink, chum, trout, and the humble, but colorful sculpin have little worth. We have a carefully named commission to focus investigation into the disappearance of sockeye, and nothing else, caudal ﬁn or not. Economic value frees the Harper team from any expectation to protect streams in B.C. that don’t have sockeye – there’s lots of them. Enbridge pipes would cross some. As Geoff Clayton of ARMS suggests, the new industry-freeing Section 35 of the act is a green light for the Gateway pipeline. Indeed, the minister now has power in the amended Section 35 (2) to ensure the light remains green for all developers who lobbied for one. Original wording declared no one – even the minister – can allow a harmful alteration, disruption or destruction for any reasons. But, the adjusted law permits adverse effects if authorized by the minister after economic considerations. Developers, municipalities bent on growth, agriculture, will be overjoyed. See Emberly, p7

THE NEWS/letters Teachers, give up wage demands EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Teachers claim that their job action is â€˜all about the kids.â€™ In one way they are correct as kids are the ones suffering the most as a result. If it is truly about the kids, then give up your wage and beneďŹ t demands and concentrate on classroom improvements. After all, your last contract gave you 16 per cent and thatâ€™s in addition to regular incremental raises for seniority. Now the nurses, hospital employees and BCGEU are climbing aboard the bandwagon and their contracts havenâ€™t even expired yet. All feel they deserve a raise. Who doesnâ€™t? What part of â€˜there is no moneyâ€™ do you not understand? ANNE ROSTVIG MAPLE RIDGE
Say no way to Section 35 change Emberly from p6 Conservative MP Randy Kamp indicates thatâ€™s been the governmentâ€™s aim for a long time, saying changes needed to be made in Section 35 because municipalities canâ€™t clean out their ditches, and farmers canâ€™t either, if ďŹ sh have been found in them, and theyâ€™re considered habitat. Our ditches were streams before we turned them into toilets. Many can be restored with efforts like the ARMS adopt-a-creek program. â€œUltimately,â€? says Mr. Kamp, â€œwere committed to protecting ďŹ sh and ďŹ sh habitat in an efďŹ cient way.â€? DFOâ€™s plan to privatize enforcement has also been exposed at the inquiry. OfďŹ cials told Cohen letting industry police itself was a more efďŹ cient way than having DFO do it. Without funding, thatâ€™s a certainty. Kamp tells â€œriver groupsâ€? concerned about changes to Section 35 to patient. â€œThey need to see what actually comes ... discussions will follow.â€? But, the Harper team will do what it wants and explain later, if necessary. Discussions over the Enbridge pipeline followed the deal to send oil to China. The decision to promote ďŹ sh farms occurred without talking to us, as did the new, exclusive deďŹ nition of ďŹ sh in law, and the dismemberment of DFO enforcement. Our government doesnâ€™t listen, or value the environment. We should follow the Dene and say no way to changes in Section 35 of the Fisheries Act. Jack Emberly is a retired teacher, local author and environmentalist.
Walkers, motorists, wake up EDITOR, THE NEWS:
We are all aware of the number of accidents in Maple Ridge which have been claiming the lives of our young people. My topic today are accidents that involve pedestrians in crosswalks. Drivers need to be aware, but so do pedestrians. Time and again I have observed pedestrians who do not stop at crosswalks to view the oncoming trafďŹ c and boldly make a quick 90-degree turn on to the roadway. Drivers need time to process that you (the pedestrian) are no longer proceeding straight down the street but are now crossing the road right in front of their moving vehicle. Your quick step on to the
Motorists and pedestrians both need to think. road may be in front of a driver who is, not looking ahead but checking his rear-view or side mirror, as he is required to do every ďŹ ve to eight seconds. Pedestrians need to ensure vehicles in all lanes have seen
them and not assume that because the vehicle in the ďŹ rst or even the second lane has stopped that the ones in the next two lanes have also seen them. Night-time pedestrians need to wear reďŹ‚ective cloth-
ing and take extra caution that the driver is aware of their presence. Although you may say â€œitâ€™s not cool to wear reďŹ‚ectors,â€? itâ€™s way less cool to be left injured for life or not to have a life to enjoy. Drivers also need to be aware of the dangers of pedestrians. Time and again on Dewdney Trunk Road I have observed drivers stopped too close to the crosswalk or in the crosswalk. I have observed drivers who continue on without even a slight reduction in speed when vehicles travelling the opposite direction are stopped at crosswalks. Are these drivers just assuming the stopped vehicle is making a right-hand turn? M. ISSEL MAPLE RIDGE
Why do we have to buy tax-prep software? EDITOR, THE NEWS:
It is interesting to note that our governments provide for free a form for reporting income but no tax preparation software. The cost of
the software availability on line at the CRA site would be offset by the savings realized when taxpayers ďŹ le electronically. Forcing taxpayers to pay
private software companies is akin to an extra tax. It would be interesting to ďŹ nd out how much these software providers contribute to political parties. Maybe
everyone should ďŹ le on a written form one year â€Ś and convince the government to do the logical thing. GILLES PARIZEAU MAPLE RIDGE
Thanks trustees for anti-homophobia policy EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Itâ€™s exciting to hear that the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows school district voted unanimously to bring in policies aimed at preventing homophobic bullying.
Both myself and my colleague, local MLA Michael Sather, would like to commend students, staff and school trustees for taking steps to make your district a safer and more welcoming
place for lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgendered youth. Iâ€™d also like to echo teacher Erin Talbotâ€™s call for provincewide policies to prevent homophobic and transphobic discrimination
and violence in our schools. Students across the province have joined with New Democrats in calling on the premier to take real action. SPENCER CHANDRA-HERBERT MLA VAN. â€“ WEST END

Pitt Meadows will push on drainage
BACK & NECK PAIN? We now offer:
Wants solution to problems near Golden Ears Bridge
SPINAL DECOMPRESSION and LASER
by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter
Do you suffer from:
The City of Pitt Meadows has committed to lobbying TransLink for a solution to drainage and noise problems plaguing a neighbourhood near the Golden Ears Bridge. Council decided Tuesday to send a letter to the transportation authority in support of a request from the Southern Pitt Meadows Residents’ Association to extend the sound wall north to Hammond Road and south of Airport Way, as well as to plant trees at Hammond Road, on both sides of 113b Avenue to mitigate the visual impacts such as vehicle headlights, and to expedite the repair of the Katzie Slough culverts at Airport Way. The letter is the latest attempt by residents to get TransLink to address their concerns. It comes after a community action group, which has been meeting

Residents say roads leading to bridge has changed drainage. with TransLink to address noise and drainage issues, was dissolved in February. “It is evident that Translink is not prepared to discuss or resolve these outstanding issues with the affected residents or the members of council,” wrote Mike Stark, president of the residents’ association. To address complaints about noise, TransLink will increase the height of a sound barrier to 4.6 metres to dampen the sound of trafﬁc along Golden Ears Way and Airport Way. TransLink is also working with the city to ﬁx the culvert under
Airport Way. “I think what the residents are asking from us is to be their advocates to Translink and that’s fair,” said Mayor Deb Walters.
Angry e-mails Local mayors are ﬁelding criticism from people across Metro Vancouver miffed by proposals to raise more money for TransLink by charging an annual vehicle fee or a new carbon tax. Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters is letting the angry residents vent and says she can empathize with them. “The frustrating thing
is it’s the board that makes the decision on capital funding and the mayors have to come up with a way to fund it,” said Walters, who once again voiced her support for a forensic audit of TransLink. “It is really hard to go out to citizens and say we need money if we don’t know where all the money is going.” Metro Vancouver mayors want the province to enable the new funding sources to raise an extra $30 million – committed last year to ensure the Evergreen Line proceeds – that will otherwise be added to property taxes starting in 2013.

Development moving ahead on district-owned downtown land To start accepting expressions of interest by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter The District of Maple Ridge is set to begin fielding expressions of interest from developers for a piece of prime real estate it owns in the downtown core. The three-acre lot between Haney Place and Valley Fair malls was purchased by the district last year for $3.7 million to try and jumpstart downtown development. Bordered by Selkirk Avenue, 227th Street and 119th Avenue,
the district envisions a mixed use commercial-residential development on the site – one that is environmentally sustainable or LEED certified and has amenities such as park space, public art as well as a percentage of units designated for affordable housing or rental stock. In its first year, Maple Ridge’s town centre investment program, which offers cash rebates for development fees, reductions in building-permit fees and property tax exemptions as a
way to entice downtown development, has already spurred more than $100 million in construction projects. More than a dozen developers, who are eager to avail themselves of the cost-saving incentives have contacted the district to enquire about the three-acre property. “I see tremendous potential in this and, of course, I’m hoping at the end of the day there is a profit,” said Coun. Al Hogarth, who was credited at council Monday for bringing the Smart Growth concept, which is followed in the down-
comprehensive care • trusted • proven reputation ~ 20 years experience ~
town, to Maple Ridge in 2002. “Coun. Hogarth has been instrumental in this. It’s not by accident these things happen, it’s by time commitment,” said Coun. Judy Dueck. Coun. Corisa Bell was excited by how quickly the process had moved forward. “I really like the concept of having a small percentage set aside for affordable housing,” she said. Once expression of interests are received, staff will prepare another report for council which will help them shortlist developers.
Provincial grant for six new trail bridges 20% increase in trail use in past 10 years by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter Thanks to $160,000 in Community Recreation Grants, Maple Ridge will get six new or rebuilt trail bridges to take them across local creeks and streams in the forests in and around the district. Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton made the announce-
ment in a Thursday news release. Two trails in the Silver Valley area, Mill Creek Trail and Maggie and Jiggs Trail, will get new bridges. As well, the Rainbow Ridge trail at 272nd Street near 108th Avenue in east Maple Ridge will also get a new bridge. The bridge on the Paulene Clark Trail near 256th Street and

102nd Avenue will be rebuilt. Also scheduled for rebuilding is the bridge on North Martyn Trail, at 124th Avenue and 264th Street, and the Wellman Bridge, also on the Rainbow Ridge trail. “Some of the bridges I think were so mossy, you almost didn’t realize you were on a bridge,” said Kelly Swift, parks and recre-
ation services general manager. Swift said use of trails is growing as people seek out nature. In the last decade, Maple Ridge has seen a 20-per-cent increase in trail use. Eighty per cent of the population now say they use the trails. “We just have a wonderful asset that many people don’t have with that trail network.”

Conservatives to hold first meeting
the wait is over.
Starting a political group from scratch is no piece of cake, but the B.C. Conservatives in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge are underway and hope to have a candidate to run as a spoiler between the NDP and Liberals in next year’s election. “We’re starting from the beginning and it’s not been an easy task,” said organizer Wendy Cook, who has campaigned federally for Conservative MP Randy Kamp. “It’s the grass roots starting out.” A few spots on the executive have been ﬁlled, but the goal of the ﬁrst annual general meeting on March 31 in South Bonson Community Centre (10:30 a.m. to noon) is to choose a board of directors and plan campaign strategy. So far, about 30 members have signed up. Cook said she’d like
to see a high-proﬁle B.C. Conservative candidate run in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows in next spring’s election. A Conservative candidate could siphon away votes from the Liberals and make it easier for the NDP to hold on to the riding after MLA Michael Sather steps down. Each of those parties has at least one candidate seeking the nomination. Terry Becker wants to run for the Liberals, while Elizabeth Rosenau and Korleen Carreras will face off later for the right to represent the NDP. Nomination meetings haven’t been set yet. Cook said the B.C. Conservatives, led by John Cummins, hope to have candidates in all 85 B.C. ridings next election and wants to get more people on board. “It’s a lot of work so we need all the help we can get.” There is no Conservative association in the Maple Ridge-Mission riding.

How to help those who lack it Hookey from p17 The real question for relatives and caregivers is whether steps can be taken to improve vitality in those who lack it. While the simple answer is yes, the effort necessary to do so is a bit more complex, as a challenge to the caregiver. It takes a great deal of energy and enthusiasm on the part of a caregiver to generate vitality in an elderly person who is not generating it for him- or herself. As well, it may take a long time to see progress or the progress might be in very small increments, regardless of the volume of energy put into the process by others. Vitality is driven, for the most part, by having a purpose. The person who gets up each day with a goal tends to muster the energy necessary to achieve it and tends to enjoy the emotional reward of a completed job at some point. This is the strategy that caregivers must apply, helping in the process of establishing small tasks that can be accomplished and celebrated. Even the tiniest tasks, posed as a challenge and celebrated when complete provide encouragement and satisfaction that might ensure continued goal-setting, perhaps on an even grander scale.
Vitality has both a physical and mental side, but I believe the mental side is the greatest. Once the mind is engaged in a sense of purpose, the body tends to follow and do what is necessary. It’s not enough to simply care for the physical health of an aging person. We need to engage them, regularly, in determining a purpose or task for the day and then join with them in the celebration of completing that task.
“It’s better to remind them what they can do and encourage them to get on with it.”
Often the elderly lament about what they can’t do and their vitality wanes. It’s better to remind them what they can do and encourage them to get on with it. That’s what brings life to every day. Graham Hookey writes about education, parenting and eldercare (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Good gardeners plant peas early W
e take many things for granted today, often not fully appreciating the amount of research, hard work or even the fascinating history behind some of our garden food plants. Take the garden pea for example. Our parents and grandparents planted them, Gardening but their Brian Minter history dates back a bit farther – pea seeds were found in an Egyptian tomb at Thebes. Garden peas, or Pisum sativum, are thought to have originated in the area around Pisa, Italy, where they grew wild. The Greeks and Romans served boiled peas as a light refreshment during intermissions at their theatre presentations. Peas were a favourite early vegetable among Europeans, and various cultures adapted legends about peas. In Britain, a pod containing nine peas was considered lucky. Peas were also used as one of the many cures for warts. Each wart was supposed to be touched with a pea, that was then wrapped in paper and buried. As the pea decayed in the ground, the wart was supposed to disappear. In the language of ﬂowers, the pea is a symbol of respect, and it’s the birthday ﬂower of Feb. 17. The garden pea we all know and enjoy today was developed in England and was one of the ﬁrst crops planted in the New World. Garden peas are one of the most widely grown and most healthy of all garden vegetables. They are rich in nutrients, containing phosphorus, potassium and vitamins A, B and C. Peas are high in carbohydrates, but fortunately, low in calories. One cup of peas has only 45 calories. They also

inches apart. For maximum space usage, plant in wide, three-foot rows, keeping each row about 18 inches apart. Raised beds are beneﬁcial to many garden vegetables, and peas are no exception. Soil levels, raised six to eight inches above ground level, will raise the temperature of the soil from eight to 13 degrees F. There are a number of good pea varieties, and it can take you several years to try them all. I’ve seen many old-timers grow beautiful crops of telephone peas on poles, which makes a ﬁne garden feature, but most of us simply don’t have enough room in a small garden. ‘Little Marvel’ is an old dwarf pea that requires very little staking. I think, however, that the best dwarf peas are the ‘Sugar Snap’ varieties. ‘Sugar Ann’, ‘Honey Pod Dwarf’ and ‘Sweet Snap’ are three award winning varieties, and their ﬂavour is superb.
Garden peas are one of the most widely grown and most healthy of all garden vegetables.
In Britain, a pod containing nine peas was considered lucky. contain nutritious amounts of ﬁber, folic acid, amino acids and protein. Peas are a cool crop vegetable, and as soon as all danger of heavy frost has passed, they can be planted. In Scotland, peas were never sown until the ﬁrst swallow appeared, while in England, an old ditty advises to “Sow beans and peas on David and Chad (March
1-2), be the weather good or bad”. Although many good gardeners plant peas early, you can space the plantings out to enjoy peas right through the summer. Peas prefer a well drained, shallow, sandy soil that both dries out and warms up quickly. They also like a new location in the garden each year, if possible. Peas do not thrive in acid soil, and an application of Dolomite lime is essential
for both peas and beans. Also, avoid using compost. Many seed companies are promoting the use of nitrogen inoculants with pea crops. These are simply granules of live nitrogenﬁxing bacteria. In general, they improve the growth of peas and are supposed to increase crop yields. Peas should be planted about two inches deep and about two

For patio pots, the new award winner ‘Patio Wonder’ is amazing. Grown well, it will produce for most of the summer. The great feature of these peas is the fact that you eat the pod and all, and they never get bitter or old tasting! Peas are an early cool crop, and they can be planted now. They will grow quickly to provide you with their uniquely delicious ﬂavour. Brian Minter owns and operates Minter Gardens just outside of Chilliwack.

Portrait Homes named top builder in Canada
Local builder wins AVID Award Portrait Homes has long had a reputation for building amazing homes and delivering great value. They were recently the recipients of multiple Georgie Awards from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of British Columbia, including two Customer Choice awards. Now they are being honoured again with the Avid Diamond Award for the Best Customer Experience in Canada. “This is truly an outstanding achievement and honour for Portrait Homes to be given this award,” says Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Troy Steine. “It’s been made possible by the unwavering dedication and
commitment from each and every one of the Portrait Homes team.” The annual Avid Awards honour the best builders across Canada for providing great customer service, and base their awards on feedback from homeowners. This year, over 97 per cent of Portrait home buyers said they would recommend the company. Steine is extremely proud of this statistic. “Providing an outstanding customer experience is the strength that allows Portrait Homes to flourish in a competitive market and positions us as the builder of choice in today’s real estate market,” he says.
The bathrooms are luxurious, with thick granite countertops, polished chrome or satin nickel bath fixtures and hardware and mosaic ceramic tile surounds on the bath and shower. The high-quality laminate flooring featured throughout the main floor is durable and ready to take the pounding of any number of feet, while the thick carpeting on the upper floor is a cozy detail that you’ll love to sink your feet into in the morning. Another
thoughtful detail is the built-in wire closet shelving, so you’ll easily be able to unpack as soon as you get your keys. A wide range of demographics have been interested in South Arm Gardens, Lawson says. Buyers will be able to take possession of their new homes in late April or early May. Homes at South Arm Gardens start at $499,000. For more information check out www.southarmgardens.com or call 604-998-4526.
‘A location that can’t be beat’
Richmond welcoming South Arm Gardens by Kerry Vital
The South Arm neighbourhood of Richmond is full of parks, shops and recreation, so it should be no surprise that the area is proud to welcome its newest development, South Arm Gardens. Built by the Kraftsmen Group of Companies and with 15 townhomes in the development, South Arm Gardens has the feel of an exclusive little community. “These are wonderful homes at a terrific value and in a location that can’t be beat,” says Sean Lawson, president of Steveston Real Estate. “South Arm Gardens offers an affordable way to get into the market in one of Richmond’s most sought-after neighbourhoods.” Seven different floorplans and three different designer-selected colour schemes give you plenty of options for finding the home that fits you best, and with the private fenced yards that are included with every home and beautiful landscaping, your outdoor space will make an amazing first impression. Inside, the nine-foot ceilings on the main level and oversized windows contribute to the overriding sense of space, no matter what room you’re in. Those oversized windows allow plenty of natural light to shine in, so your home will never feel dark even in the worst weather. Many of the homes are built with an open-plan layout that is perfect for entertaining, and the convenient kitchen islands in most
plans provide extra storage and counter space. Crown moulding throughout is one of the little details that make these homes so amazing, along with large 5 1/4-inch baseboards on the main floor and 4 1/4-inch baseboards on the upper floors. The kitchens showcase chefinspired touches, such as stainlesssteel appliances and custom-crafted cabinets complemented by natural granite countertops. Adjustable overhead halogen track lighting and ceiling pot lights ensure you have the perfect amount of light while prepping and cooking, and a hand-set ceramic tile backsplash lends a touch of sophisticated elegance to the room.
These are wonderful homes at a terriﬁc value,” says Sean Lawson, president of Steveston Real Estate.
South Arm Gardens features chef-inspired kitchens, above, including a stylish ceramic-tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances. Laminate ﬂooring is featured throughout the living areas, top, while the spacious master bedrooms, left, feature luxurious carpeting.

ost of us at times become overwhelmed with rules: governments make rules; employers make rules; unions make rules; schools make rules; parents make rules. It seems that we have so many rules that most of us are inundated with rules. Rules, however, play an important part in life and are intended to create more positives than negatives. I have been watching the NHL with interest. The league have rules. The purpose of those rules is to protect the players and create as much freedom as possible. For instance, high sticking, spearing, ﬁghting and holding are prohibited and penalized. They detract from the game. By adding these rules, the league produces more freedoms than
restrictions and, thus, enhance the game. Rules make the game run more smoothly and fairly. They are not meant to take away the fun of the game, they are there to make the game a lot more fun. The positive (liberation) outweighs the negative (restrictions). We often think that the commandments in the Bible are designed to take the fun out of life. But that is wrong. The opposite is true. They are really intended to protect us from injuring each other, and they make life a lot more pleasant. For instance, the command “You shall not murder” is designed to protect a person’s life. Because there is murder, many of us at times consciously or unconsciously fear for our lives. If people obeyed this command, we would not have the tragic stories of murderer Col. Russell

Your Kids & Drugs A PARENTS ONLY FORUM
This information forum gives parents a teen’s perspective on drug and alcohol use. Parents will learn to identify drug use, the latest drug trends, and what drugs look like. The forum will conclude with a Q&A with teens. Where: Pitt Meadows Secondary School 19438-116B Avenue, Pitt Meadows When: Wednesday, April 4, 2012 6:30–9:00 pm RVSP: Call 604-467-5179 by March 30, 2012 Presented by Alouette Addictions Services, Ridge Meadows RCMP, School District 42, and local teens.
God never puts restrictions on a person’s behaviour for the sake of a power trip or just to make him suffer. The kind of God scripture reveals is one who is compassionate and full of mercy. Yes, God is holy, righteous and just, and he demands accountability. But he is also kind and caring. He wants the very best for us. The Psalmist understood this. He wrote, “No good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless” (Ps. 84:11). He also encouraged us to “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Ps. 34:8). It is true that when we put ourselves within the limitations God has set, we discover freedom. The Ten Commandments initially appear to inhibit, but they produce the opposite effect in our lives - liberation. Harry Loewen is Pastor of East Ridge Community Fellowship.

Elderly drivers offered road test option For those who fail computerized test by Tom Fletcher Black Press Drivers more than 80 years old who fail a computerized test of their mental ability will now be offered a road test before they have to surrender their licences. Attorney General Shirley Bond announced the road test option Monday after complaints from people who lost their driving privileges based on a computer test called DriveABLE.
Some elderly people with little computer experience found the touch-screen tests of cognitive ability to be unfamiliar and unfair way to test them. Some elderly people with little computer experience found the touch-screen tests of cognitive ability to be unfamiliar and unfair
way to test them. The DriveABLE test has is administered on referral from doctors who detect cognitive impairment in patients that may affect their driving. Bond said those who failed the on-screen test in the past six months will be offered a free road test, using a test car with dual brakes. Those who failed more than six months ago have to see their doctor before being reassessed. NDP public safety critic Kathy Corrigan was surprised to hear that the DriveABLE program is now being “peer reviewed,” a step that she said the government should have taken before the service was contracted for B.C. Corrigan said the road test option is a step in the right direction, but details of that haven’t been made public yet. Bond also announced that a new DriveABLE assessment centre will be opened in Cranbrook, making 18 locations in B.C. A new mobile service is also in the works, so people in rural areas don’t have to travel as

LeBlanc set to make history with 100th cap Maple Ridge soccer player to be first Canadian goalkeeper to join Century Club by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter
t’s a milestone few soccer players can ever hope to reach, and for Maple Ridge’s Karina LeBlanc, her 100th cap will be nothing short of historic. This Saturday, LeBlanc will become the first Canadian goalkeeper, male or female, to compete in 100 international matches, should she suit up for Team Canada in a friendly match against Brazil.
“We started from scratch. My parents sacrificed so much.” Karina LeBlanc, Team Canada goalkeeper
Leblanc becomes just the eighth Canadian women’s team member to have ever reached the Century Club, where she joins current teammates Christine Sinclair (177), Rhian Wilkinson (112), and Brittany Timko (103). “Every time you put on the Team Canada jersey it’s special, but if someone told me years ago I’d still be playing and I’d have a 100 caps, I’d be like, that’s great,
but I don’t think I’d really appreciate what that means,” says LeBlanc, who turns 32 on March 30. Now in her second decade of international play, LeBlanc says her 100-game milestone is a monument to the sacrifices made by her parents. The Leblanc family lived on the Caribbean island nation of Dominica until she was eight years old. Her father, Vans, was a bank manager, and her mother was a professor. Despite her family’s relatively prosperous position in Dominica, the Leblancs came to Canada for a better life. “We started from scratch,” says Leblanc. “My parents sacrificed so much for us.” LeBlanc started out playing for the Golden Ears Royals before playing for the B.C. and Canadian junior development teams. That helped land her a scholarship at the University of Nebraska, and after graduating in 2000, she turned pro. However, LeBlanc’s soccer career hasn’t been all smiles and cheers, she says. Injuries in 2004 and 2007 had her questioning wether her soccer career was over. “I had doctors telling me I’d never be the player I was,” she said. “But I surrounded myself with positive people, and I refused to give up, I refused to be a victim.” Sure enough, she was able to recover from a serious knee and shoulder injuries and play for Team Canada at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. “I’ve only ever seen my father
Maple Ridge’s Karina LeBlanc to be first Canadian goalkeeper to join the Century Club with 100 international matches. cry twice,” says Leblanc. “The first was when we left Dominica.
The second was when I saw him in the stands at the Olympics in
2008.” The match against Brazil is set for Gillette Stadium, just south of Boston, where LeBlanc spent three years playing professional soccer with the Boston Breakers of the now defunct Women’s United Soccer Association. LeBlanc’s mother, longtime local teacher Winsome LeBlanc, is traveling to Boston to witness the historic occasion. “It’s a soccer mom’s dream come true,” says Winsome. Despite now living in LA, and spending most of her time on the road, Leblanc says she still considers Maple Ridge her home. “That’s were I first kicked a soccer ball,” she says. “That’s where my oldest friends and family are.” Her strong local roots were evident earlier this year when she and Team Canada beat Mexico at B.C. Place in Vancouver to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. “There were old coaches there, friends from high school, people I hadn’t seen in 10, 12 years,” she says. And of course, her parents, cheering her on as always. “Every day they tell me they’re proud of me,” she says. As historic as her milestone is, however, LeBlanc says she has loftier goals. With the 2012 Summer Olympics looming, Team Canada is hoping to do something no other Canadian soccer team ever done before. “This year, we want to medal in London,” says LeBlanc. “Right now, that’s the only thing I’m focussed on.” email@example.com
Ramblers’ Neumann signs with UFV Cascades staff reporter Maple Ridge Rambler guard Max Neumann will be continuing his basketball career at the University of the Fraser Valley, after the signing with the Cascades this week. Neumann averaged 21 points per game in his his senior year of AAA high school basketball with the Ramblers, while pulling down an average of seven rebounds and adding four assists. UFV Cascades head coach Barnaby Craddock said the six-foot-three guard will have an opportunity to get significant minutes with the graduation of fourth-year guard
Sheldon Bjorgaard. “Max excelled this year at the Center of Performance program against the best guards in B.C, and with one of the best work ethics we have seen in a while we have high hopes for him at the university level,” said Craddock. “Max has had a fantastic Grade 12 season at Maple Ridge under the outstanding coaching of Ken Dockendorf. It’s a privilege to have such a talented and high quality young man chose to join our UFV Men’s basketball program.” Neumann said he was excited to be playing close to home, and hopes to help the Cascades improve on their Canada West silver medal finish this season. The UFV
Cascades were ranked fourth in the final Canadian Interuniversity Sport top ten poll. The Cascades participated in the CIS Final 8 national championship tournament in Halifax earlier this year, finishing fourth in Canada. “I’m very excited to be playing for UFV in the coming years, and I think UFV is the perfect place to help me achieve my full potential,” said Neumann. “It’s great to stay home in the Fraser Valley and I hope to help UFV compete for a championship.” Neumann will add to the local flavour of the Cascades, playing along side former Pitt Meadows secondary guard Spencer Evans.

New route for Barryâ€™s Roubaix cycling race in Pitt Meadows staff reporter The third annual Barryâ€™s Roubaix road cycling race returns to the dikes of Pitt Meadows on Sunday, April 8, and this year features a new route with more off-road sections. The race is the provinceâ€™s ďŹ rst big competitive cycling event of the season and promises to be even more exciting this year as race organizer and Local Ride Bike Shop owner Barry Lyster has turned the old course on its ear and started from scratch to offer riders a brand new route. â€œThe change came late in the organizing process and made things a little more stressful,â€? said Lyster. â€œAn unexpected high permit cost left us to either cancel the event or try to get another route ready in time for
Roubaix Sunday.â€? The new course has more gravel than the original one, which should make things even more interesting for spectators and extra challenging for the riders. Lyster added. About half of the courseâ€™s 10km length is on the scenic Pitt Meadows dike system next to the Fraser River. The courseâ€™s other half features some of the areaâ€™s the beautiful rural roads. The new loop will start and ďŹ nish on Kennedy Road near the Pitt Meadows BMX track. Barryâ€™s Roubaix pays homage to the famous spring classic road cycling race, Paris-Roubaix, which will feature its 109th edition on April 8. The race, which takes riders through northern France, is known for
its grueling conditions, such as rough cobblestone roads and gusting winds. Staying true to its namesake, last yearâ€™s Barryâ€™s Roubaix proved to be a wet and wild race with cold, driving rain. â€œLast yearâ€™s Barryâ€™s Roubaix was an epic day that made April Showers look like a drop in the bucket,â€? said Lyster. â€œWeâ€™re hoping for something in between this year. We want it to be tough for the racers, but we donâ€™t want our faithful volunteers to freeze out there on the course.â€? Registration is still open for the event, and available online at www.karelo.com until 4:00pm on Saturday, April 7. â€˘For more information about the race, visit www.localride.ca

In Loving Memory of
Shauna Tomsic & Jay Blake of Maple Ridge would like to introduce their daughter, Aria Brynn Blake, born March 20, 2012 at 2:17am, weighing 7 lbs 9 oz. Aria is welcomed by her excited older brother, Cole Blake-Boyne, and proud grandparents Brenda Blake, Tom & Terry Blake, and Frimen & Heather Tomsic.
From humble beginnings being orphaned at a young age, he was temporarily separated from his siblings when he left Swan River, Manitoba and went to New Westminster where he was raised by loving foster parents. He worked in a cannery and honey farm before obtaining employment with Scott Paper at the tender age of 17. He worked there until he retired. He enjoyed raising his family immensely, and created many fond memories. In his retirement years he spent several winters enjoying the good life in Arizona. Also among his favourite times were family reunions in Edmonton, Perth Ont., and Kelowna. He was a kind and gentle man who loved horses. His interests also included hockey, curling, golf, fishing, bridge, chess and cribbage. He also had a keen interest in all things natural and scientific, on earth and throughout the universe. In the last of many charitable gestures, he donated his body to the betterment of science at the University of British Columbia. At his request there will not be a public memorial service. He will be sorrowfully missed and his memory will live on in the hearts and minds of the many that he touched so deeply. The family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks for all of the many well wishes from extended family members and friends, and to his caregivers in hospital and hospice.
