Ridge, Pitt didn’t give to carbon trust District invested in its own assets by Phil M e lnych uk staff reporter
Colleen Flanagan/the news
Exposure Ron Comeau photographs cherry blossoms along Dewdney Trunk Road at 203rd Street on a sunny Sunday.
While B.C.’s auditor general has rapped the provincial government for pouring money into Pacific Carbon Trust, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows taxpayers have only put nominal amounts into the trust. In 2011, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school board paid $102,850 into the trust, according to the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. A West Kootenay forest reserve called Darkwoods and a flaring elimination project by EnCana Corp., at its Fort Nelson natural gas operations accounted for most of the carbon credits paid by the government’s agency, the Pacific Carbon Trust. In a report last week, Auditor General John Doyle said both projects would have happened anyways. The Pacific Carbon Trust was set up as a vehicle to ensure government operations were carbon neutral. In other words, they didn’t produce a net gain of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases. Provincial and local governments, health authorities and school districts were required to buy carbon offset credits equal to the green-
house gas emissions from their buildings and vehicles, with the money invested in carbon-reducing projects. According to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school board spent $102,850 in 2011, while the Fraser Health Authority, of which Maple Ridge is a part, paid about a million in the same time period. The school district was later reimbursed. According to the school district’s report, the school district produced 3,834 tonnes of greenhouse gases in 2011. But in the same year, the school district applied to have 4,114 tonnes offset, meaning the school district was carbon neutral in that year. However, school board officials weren’t available to confirm if the Canadian Taxpayers Federation number was accurate or to provide current figures. Neither Pitt Meadows nor Maple Ridge have been required to pay into the trust. Laura Benson, manager of sustainability and corporate planning with the District of Maple Ridge, said that carbon offsets are intended to be used by people who want to cancel their own greenhouse gas emissions by paying for some other action that will reduce greenhouse gases. By doing so, they become carbon neutral. see Carbon, p9

man who was killed said he was an avid outdoorsman. Police are not releasing his name publicly. Mechanical failure of the brakes also appeared to be a contributing factor in the fatal collision, according to Ridge Meadows Sgt. Dale Somerville. see Go-karts, p8

Alexandra Tudose recharges her electric car in Memorial Peace Park, where one of the new stations is located. Colleen Flanagan/ THE NEWS
Charging up, laughing past pumps A S tor y by Phil Melnychuk
lexandra Tudose is proud to say, she’s overcome her anxiety over range.
It only took her about four days of driving her new Nissan Leaf and figuring out that it’s possible to drive an e-vehicle, follow her normal schedule and fit it all in between charging stops. “I don’t even look at gas prices anymore,” she said. “I just laugh as I drive by.” Tudose, a research technician in energy management and corporate planning for the District of Maple Ridge, wants to do as much as she can to live and work sustainably. She started looking at her daily commuting and transportation patterns to see if an electric car with limited range would serve her needs. The fact that she lives and works in town and would have limited daily needs for a car meant an electric vehicle would fit the bill. After overnight charging of her
Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
It takes 20 hours to fully charge the electric car battery. vehicle at home, using a conventional wall plug, the vehicle’s batteries will be topped up to about 100 per cent. A wall plug is considered a Level 1 charging station and takes about 20 hours to fully charge a battery from zero to 100 per cent. And she doesn’t have to open her car door to figure that out. An app on her cellphone tells her exactly the state of the batteries.
Tudose adds that it’s not good practice to drain the battery completely, so topping up the battery along the way is a good strategy. That’s now easier with 10 new charging stations that have been installed in Maple Ridge. One station is located in the public works yard, two are on Dewdney Trunk Road in front of municipal hall, three are in the underground parking lot beneath the municipal
buildings and two are in Memorial Peace Park. Money from Ministry of Environment’s $2.7-million Community Charging Infrastructure Fund paid for the stations with the result that more than 400 charging stations will be built across B.C. One each is at the SPCA Community Animal Shelter and another at Fire Hall No. 1. Two more are at Ridge Meadows Hospital. Each station costs between $5,000 and $10,000 to build. Those additions make electric driving easier for Tudose, who now has several stations near municipal hall, where she can recharge her batteries. A key card gives her access to the power, which will cost about a $1 to fully charge. “It takes about a dollar a charge, versus about $1 a litre,” of gasoline, she adds, smiling. Normal range of the batteries is 160 kilometres, but that varies on driving conditions. All told, she figures her monthly electrical bill will be about $10, although that could climb to $30 to $40 for people with longer commutes.
And while the Nissan Leaf is not yet suitable for long hauls on the highway, that day isn’t far off, as charging stations start popping up. She’s planning a trip to Comox on Vancouver Island and knows there’s a charging station in Qualicum Beach, where she can top along the way. Still, you have to be aware of your limitations, she says. For longer trips, she’ll use a Toyota Prius, a hybrid which runs on both gas and electricity. Tudose wants to contribute to sustainability and do the right thing and save money, but she’s also enjoying her new purchase and the attention it brings. What’s nice is when older people see the car. “I can’t believe I’m seeing this in my lifetime,” she recalls one man saying. She’s also savouring the other benefits, such as no maintenance. The only chores to worry about are tire rotation and filling the windshield washer reservoir. You don’t realize the vicious cycle you’re in having to buy gas regularly with a gas station on every corner. Why hasn’t it happened before? she asks. “I think you know the answer.”

Golden Ears Provincial Park is going ape this month, as in the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Part of the latest version of the movie series that spans decades is being shot at North Beach campground and will require blocking off some camp sites for the movie crews and sets. But that shouldn’t inconvenience the public because those camp sites normally don’t open until June, says Tom Blackbird, area supervisor with B.C. Parks. Movie crews are usually welcoming to campers and hikers in the area, he added. “Most of the time, they’re pretty good for allowing public access to the site, as well.” The only time the public is kept away is when shooting is actually underway or if there’s a safety issue. Don’t expect to see anyone running
Nemo Productions Canada is filming Nautilus and already set up a disaster scene on North Beach. around in monkey suits, either. Instead, actors will be in green suits with sensors so that computer-generated images can be added later. TCF Vancouver Productions is making the movie. Blackbird said Dawn of the Planet of the Apes should be in the park for most of April, while Nemo Productions Canada is filming Nautilus, which has already set up a disaster scene on North Beach. According to B.C. Parks, some filming for Nautilus will require the use of a low-flying helicopter, although flying times will be limited to between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the helicopter
will avoid flying over or near Gold Creek campground as much as possible. Blackbird said everything is done to preserve, if not enhance the park. The producers brought in clean sand on to the rocky beach to aid in shooting. When the crews leave the sand will remain, making it easier walking for park visitors. As well, all the equipment and sets have to be cleaned and inspected before they’re allowed in the park. Meanwhile, filming is underway in Bordertown, the western movie set north of Maple Ridge for an ABC Disney pilot series. Filming took place there on
Tuesday, then resumed Friday and Saturday for Big Thunder, a series based on Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad amusement park ride. The three movie shoots follow protests by Save B.C. Film in Maple Ridge in February over concerns about tax incentives in other provinces and countries killing the film industry here. A town hall meeting took place in Maple Ridge Feb. 27 at the Arts Centre Theatre and Save B.C. Film says unemployment in the provincial film industry has hit 90 per cent. Maple Ridge district film production liaison Marg Johnson, though, says she still hasn’t noticed any slowdown in the number of film permits issued this year compared to previous years. “March was an extremely busy month, easily as busy as last year.” However, she admitted this is the season when pilot shows or series are shot. Those are experimental productions, which may not last.

Pitt Meadows video game store robbed Staff tied up, machete used Police are searching for suspects in a pair of violent robberies at two video game stores Sunday in Pitt Meadows and Surrey. Ridge Meadows RCMP were called to EB Games in Meadowtown Centre around 4 p.m. after two masked men
burst into the store. Brandishing a machete, the men threatened staff and led them to back room, where they were pepper sprayed and tied up. The men grabbed items off shelves, making off with an undisclosed amount of merchandise. Two hours later, police believe the same thieves hit a second EB Games
location in Surrey using the same tactics. No one was injured in either robbery. “Police are very concerned whenever there is a robbery of this type in our community, as this does not occur often in either Pitt Meadows or Maple Ridge,” said Sgt. Dale Somerville. Somerville added because staff were tied up, there was a time delay
between the incident occurring and police being notified. “With the suspects wearing disguises, the description of the pair is vague,” he said. One man had dark, skin while the other is believed to be white. Police have canvassed other stores in the mall for any surveillance video footage, but are also seeking witnesses
to the crime. • Anyone with any information regarding this crime is asked to call Constable Brad Gibson at 604-467-7645. To remain anonymous call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip online at solvecrime. ca. CrimeStoppers will pay a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views
Return of a tax It was perhaps fitting that B.C. returned to the Provincial Sales Tax on April Fool’s Day. The rollout of the Harmonized Sales Tax by then-Premier Gordon Campbell was a colossal bungle during his time in office. The HST was praised by economists as sensible tax policy, and approved by many in the business community as easier to administer. But too many people felt betrayed by the way the tax was introduced, particularly due to the fact it came on the heels of an election where no mention of the HST was made. And after the damage had been done, and after people learned that, in general, most folks would pay more under the new regime, no attempts at explanation could turn the tide of opposition. In the summer of 2011, residents had their say in a province-wide referendum, rejecting the HST in favour of a return to the PST. So here we are, again. Back in a world with two taxes, the GST with a few exemptions, and the PST with quite a few. There’s a great explainer on the provinces website to untangle it all. Suffice to say, for many things the average British Columbian will save money with the return to the PST. On things like home repairs and renovations, child safety equipment, smoke detectors, bikes, movie tickets, golf memberships, haircuts, basic cable, gym memberships and buying a new house, the return of the PST is good news and will mean significant savings. The unfortunate impact, however, is the loss of the provincial rebate of up to $230 a year for low-income individuals, which now drops to $75. As usual, the most vulnerable feel the shift most keenly. Meantime, the rest of us will adjust, as we always do. – Black Press

Greenhouse gas leaks from trust VICTORIA – The Pacific Carbon Trust orchestrated a months-long campaign of calls and letters to discredit a report from B.C.’s Auditor General on its first two big carbon offset projects, before it could be released. B.C. Views Just as the audit Tom Fletcher report was about to be made public, the trust, a Crown corporation created at taxpayer expense, participated in the leaking of selected critical letters to media outlets. Then the Speaker of the B.C. legislature, Bill Barisoff, made a final, clumsy effort to delay the release of the report. As soon as it was out, Environment Minister Terry Lake tried to discredit it, by blustering about all the highly paid experts who swore up and down that a forest reserve near Kootenay Lake, and a gas flaring reduction project near Fort Nelson, were bona fide carbon offsets worth $6 million of taxpayers’ money. The audit states in plain language, with charts and timelines, that the $6 million was basically given away for nothing. I look forward to further audits on this carbon offset scheme, assuming it survives after the May election, because these two projects aren’t the only boondoggles. The Pacific Carbon Trust was set up in 2008 as part of former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate change program. To make the B.C. government’s operations
“carbon neutral,” the government and all of its agencies were required to pay the trust $25 per tonne for their carbon dioxide emissions from fuel use. In 2011 alone, B.C. universities paid $4.46 million to the trust. B.C.’s 60 school districts paid a total of $5.36 million the same year, and the province’s six health authorities paid $5.79 million. The money is supposed to go to projects that capture carbon, thus “offsetting” the heating of schools, the fuel burned by ambulances and so forth. The 55,000-hectare forest reserve is known as Darkwoods. The audit shows that the Nature Conservancy of Canada decided in 2006 to buy it, using $25 million of federal taxpayers’ money. The deal closed in 2008, the same year the Pacific Carbon Trust was formed. From 2008 to 2010, the trust bought 450,000 tonnes of carbon offset, based on independent evaluations that all rested on the assumption that Darkwoods would be clear-cut logged. Since the forest was already owned by Canada’s leading conservancy, this assumption makes no sense. Was the conservancy going to log it, or flip it to someone who would, after accepting $25 million in tax money to acquire it? Legally, it could not. (I would add that the assumption that logging releases all of the carbon in a forest is also false. Lumber actually sequesters carbon for longer than trees, which eventually die and rot.) The audit found a similar case against EnCana’s flare reduction program, which the company used on many wells before the trust started offering money. EnCana was saving money as well as
reducing emissions without collecting offsets. Therefore, the audit concluded, neither of these projects was a credible offset because the emissions savings would have occurred anyway. Here’s the next Pacific Carbon Trust project that should be audited. In a complicated transaction, the trust bought offsets from something called the Great Bear Carbon Credit Limited Partnership.
“Since the forest was already owned by Canada’s leading conservancy, this assumption makes no sense.”
Yes, this is the world-famous forest on B.C.’s North Coast that was subject to a preservation deal hammered out between the Coastal First Nations, the B.C. government and three U.S.-backed environmental groups. That was in 2006. The offset purchases were in 2009 and 2010, years after detailed preservation areas were mapped and codified in law. Again, the trust paid for forest that was already preserved.

Kitimat refinery project would be good for B.C. I
first heard of the Kitimat refinery concept from David Black a number of years ago. At the time I was skeptical of its chances. My initially negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Commentary Imperial Oil. Jim Shepard Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries throughout North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve four years at Canfor, which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets. My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China’s economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept. It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying on the North America market, but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite of China for petroleum products.
The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that Mr. Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all of Asia will continue to grow, and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interested in securing sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers, such as surprises with taxes, regulations or tariffs. Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. Mr. Black, with his years of diligence, deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and courage to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative. The positive merits of the Kitimat refinery are so profound that this project is really beyond any political persuasion. Any and all supporters of NDP, Liberal, Conservative or even Green should see the tremendous benefits that would come to B.C. with this project.
This initiative will involve the investment of many billions of dollars. When it comes to the benefits of a petroleum cycle, from well exploration to the gas station, the jurisdiction that hosts the refining process enjoys a huge portion of the value addition to the raw material. For the Kitimat project, that would mean several thousand, mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction
“For the Kitimat project, that would mean several thousand, mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction phase.” phase. It would also mean the creation of more than 3,000 permanent jobs for the operation and supply support of the refinery when running. This refinery would be processing 175 million barrels per year. The tax revenue that could go toward health care, education, vital services for the disabled and elderly would be immense. But job creation and tax revenue is not the only desirable feature of the Kitimat concept. It also would provide much lower risk
to the marine environment. The shipments out of the refinery would be finished product like aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel. These products, if ever spilt, would have much less of an impact on the marine environment. They would also be transported in smaller ships. I know there are those on both sides of the political aisle that address this as a political issue. And I would disagree with both. This is a project that can be attractive to all political stripes. Trade unions would see a significant increase in jobs and memberships. Hospitals and schools across the province would see an improvement in government funding. It would be positive for business activity, especially in the challenged northwest B.C. And those with a concern for the threat of marine spills would see a significantly reduced exposure for the environment. Based on the huge positive impact this initiative could have on B.C., I think the question should not be if we want it, but rather how can we help make sure that the petroleum world sees this as an attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital.

Fire department puts out grass fires by Monisha M ar t ins staff reporter
After three grass fires in a week, the Maple Ridge fire department is warning residents that a burning ban remains in effect until mid-April. There were two fires over the Easter long weekend, while a third ignited in a field off 224th Street earlier in the week. Fire chief Peter Grootendorst said a homeown-
er on Dewdney Trunk Road at 284th Street was burning branches and green waste on the weekend when the wind picked up, causing the fire to spread. “They scrambled to put it out. Luckily, they got it under control before we got there,” he added. The second fire, on 256th Street, was sparked by a man who was trying to burn grass in his field. Grootendorst said people think brush fires won’t
ignite because we’ve had months of rain, but blackberry bushes and grass remains tinder dry despite the soggy winter. “Even though we’ve only had a few days of sunshine, it’s enough to make lighting a fire dangerous. You need to use caution,” he added. All three residents caught burning in their backyards last week were fined. The urban areas of Maple Ridge and Pitt Mead-
ows are completely closed to any type of burning. The rural areas of Maple Ridge may burn dry garden refuse from April 15 to May 15 with a permit. In Pitt Meadows, burning is only allowed on agriculturally zoned properties Oct. 1 to Nov. 30 and March 1 to April 30. An authorized burn permit is required. • For links to an interactive burn area map, visit mapleridgenews. com.
‘Designed for recreational use, controlled environment’ Go-kart from front
Friday’s crash happened on Glenhurst Street at 118th Avenue around 5 p.m. The go-kart crashed into the side of a car, losing a wheel. The impact also caused a fuel spill, which was mopped up by the fire department. The go-kart driver was treated at the scene for a cut on his shin. He was ticketed by Ridge Meadows RCMP. Somerville reminded residents that go-karts have no place on public roads. “They are designed for recreational use in a controlled environment,” he said, adding that because go-karts are so low to the grounds, they put drivers in a dangerous position where they can’t be seen by other vehicles.
“Go-karts on any public roadway will not be tolerated by police,” said Somerville. Go-karts will be towed if found on a public road and the driver will be ticketed under the Motor Vehicle Act.
Purse theft arrest A woman has been charged in connection with a brazen purse snatching that targeted an elderly woman in downtown Maple Ridge. Caroline Ruth Swetz was taken into custody on Thursday and is now facing one count of theft under $5,000. The charges stem from what police call a “disturbing theft” of a senior’s purse on Sunday March 24 on 224th Street.
Police allege Swetz, 50, stole the senior’s purse after the woman bought her a sandwich. “It was a crime that outraged all of our officers and our community,” said Insp. David Fleugel. “We spent a considerable amount of time seeking CCTV footage from area businesses to assist. This avenue of investigation is paying incredible dividends and is an expanding opportunity for investigators.” Swetz has since been released on bail with conditions that forbid her from having any contact with the victim. She is also not permitted to be in the Maple Ridge downtown core, bordered by 227th Street and 222nd Street, along with the Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road.

‘we are saving tax dollars into the future’ Carbon from front
“We haven’t paid into the Pacific Carbon Trust. Our approach has been to put money toward our own assets, like the Leisure Centre, district vehicles, the fire halls, to make them more energy efficient,” she said. “That not only reduces greenhouse gases right here in Maple Ridge, it also reduces our energy bills, saving tax dollars into the future.”
Maple Ridge did partner with a company, Community Ecosystem Restoration Initiative, in 2005 to reduce greenhouse gases. That involved planting thousands of indigenous trees on district land in areas where invasive species were taking over, at no cost to the district. According to the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation, B.C. universities paid $4.46 million into the Pacific Carbon Trust in

Through his involvement in the Festival of Light poetry contest, Robinsmith saw a large number of young poets writing locally, and wants an event to encourage them. “It is the perfect event to create a poetic story around,” he says. “Mother Nature is there for all of us as poets to write a story on the beauty of nature, and we as a society are at a powerful crossroads concerning our ability to save or destroy our own living environment.” The theme of the poetry contest is covered by the main pillars of Celebrate Earth Day in Maple Ridge: Nature and the Outdoors, Family and Community, and Green Innovation and Technology.

New lights, roads and turning lanes Municipalities get ICBC grants
while vehicles turning left on 280th also got their own signal thanks to a $5,900 contribution. Pedestrians also got some help. ICBC contributed $10,000 for a pedestrian-crossing light that the District of Maple Ridge installed on 224th Street and 121st Avenue. Pitt Meadows received $10,000 to help build curb extensions at Davison Road at 192 A Street and at Park Road and Somerset Drive. “Public safety is our top priority,” Mary Polak, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, said in a release. “ICBC’s safer roads program works in partnership with our ministry and with communities to ensure safety is a

The two municipalities and ICBC have teamed up to make roads safer in 2012 by helping with nine roadimprovement projects, to make life easier for motorists, even pedestrians. Last year, Abernethy Way at 227th, 228th and 230th streets had traffic lights and leftturning lanes installed, with a contribution of $98,000 from the public insurance corporation.

priority in transportation infrastructure in communities across the province. This valuable program demonstrates our continued commitment to help keep everyone safe on our roads.” All told, ICBC spent $201,000 on the latest round of road improvement projects in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge last year. According to ICBC, the safer roads program was launched in 1989, and since then, has spent more than $110 million in road improvement proj-
ects and safety studies across B.C. In 2012, it spent about $4 million in the Lower Mainland and $8 million across the province. The most recent evaluation of the program concluded that overall, for every dollar invested, ICBC and its customers see a return of five times. The evaluation found that two years following a project’s implementation, there is on average, a 20-per-cent reduction in severe crashes and a 12-per-cent reduction in property damage crashes.

Swimming in the Alouette River at Maple Ridge Park in the 1950s.
he snow is melting from the mountain tops, and if the end of March was any indication how our weather will be, we’re definitely in for a sun-soaked spring. This means taking in all of the natural beauty this area has to offer, and there is certainly no shortage. Maple Ridge is home to close to 100 parks “… encompassing a total of 25,700 hectares of land and water, making it the fourth largest municipality in the Metro Vancouver Region. Maple Ridge is recognized as a leader in the areas of recycling and waste reduction, watercourse and riparian setback mapping and municipal energy conservation” (Maple Ridge Outdoor Recreation, Trails and Event Guide). Sometimes these outdoor spaces are taken for granted, because we see them all the time. We tend not to think of how
certain parks or trails became such. It all has to do with community support – everyday citizens coming forward, and making their voices heard, and keeping our spaces green, making us aware of what we can all do to share cooperatively and maintain our ecosystem for future generations to enjoy. One of the best ways to get involved is to attend Earth Day festivities in Memorial Peace Park on Saturday, April 20 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. From an environmental poetry contest, a recycled fashion show, to creating an interactive public art project; there is no shortage of activities to take in. Be sure to check out rmrecycling.org for full details. Speaking of recycled art, over the past in year the Maple Ridge Museum has received a few recycled objects, which made us take a look inward at our collection, uncovering a few everyday objects that have been made from recycled materials. This summer the museum received two toy chairs that were
made out of aluminum cans, collected my Maple Ridge resident Sonja Barrow. The scroll detailing is impressive, and they make an excellent addition to our toy display. Perhaps the most notable is a handmade rake made by attaching nails to a piece of wood and affixing it to an old broom handle. The handle was braced with heavy wire so the head of the rake would stay in place. The rake was used by Nathaniel Craig and son-in-law P.J. Burch from 1912 to 1940 on Buena Vista Ranch, at 232nd Street, between 134th Avenue and Silver Valley Road. Both the toy chairs and the rake are currently on display at the museum, along with a few handmade household objects from the early 1900s. During May, Haney House will be also be exhibiting handmade quilts as part of our spring/summer tour. Visit mapleridgemuseum.org for details on open hours.

Unforgettable Elvis Artist hosts workshop Pete Paquette brings Elvis – The Moments to the ACT in Maple Ridge next week
Pete Paquette brings Elvis Presley to life in his show Elvis - The Moments.
et ready to Shake, Rattle and Roll, and take out your Blue Suede Shoes for an evening with the King of Rock n’ Roll in Maple Ridge next week. Elvis - The Moments, featuring Pete Paquette, will take you through the musical career of one of the world’s most celebrated entertainers. This authentic and energetic show will showcase some of the most memorable moments of Elvis Presley’s live performances, from his early years of rock’n roll in the 1950s to his explosive return to the stage in Las Vegas during the 1970s. Paquette is highly regarded as being one of the top 50 professional Elvis impersonators in North America. Adding to his credit, he was twice crowned Canadian grand champion at the Collingwood festival, one of the largest Elvis gatherings in the world – a title never earned twice by any Elvis tribute artist before. It was in the summer of 2003 that Paquette entered his first contest at the Collingwood Elvis Festival. It was there that he left his first impressions on those who would later become his biggest fans. Since then, he has participated and won close to 20 major Elvis contests around North America, skyrocketing him to great success and recognition in the business. A teacher in real life, Paquette’s musical knowledge and talent for stage performance owes a great deal to the fact that he holds a bachelor’s degree in music. Paquette’s show is filled with energy, charisma, and passion. His raw talent and years of experience as an Elvis entertainer makes his performance very professional and authentic on stage. His energy, whether it is coming from his swivelling hips or from his vocals, never fails to shake up the crowd and leaving them wanting more. • Elvis – The Moments plays the ACT Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call 604-476-2787 or visit actmapleridge.org.
Celebrated artist Keith Rice-Jones hosts a special hands-on clay workshop at the Maple Ridge art galley on Sunday exploring the possibilities of three-dimensional space. The workshop is part of A Life in The Day – a new installation of work featuring sculpture and ceramics by Keith Rice-Jones and his wife Celia. Originally from the U.K., where both developed a shared affinity for eastern and modernist aesthetics, the couple’s work has continued to evolve in captivating ways through their shared home practice at Wildrice Studio in Burnaby. Despite sharing the same clay, kiln and aesthetic sensibilities, their respective creative output is widely divergent in both scale and style. Celia Rice-Jones has gained acclaim in the ceramics community for her largely functional vessels, pots and plates that speak to the many years she has spent refining form, balance and surface treatments. While Keith Rice-Jones’ work is equally in tune with
Ceramics from the exhibit A Life in The Day. this environment, his recent large-scale figurative and abstract pieces look more at home at any time of year in an outdoor setting such as the couple’s beautiful garden. While some are more humanoid in appearance and others more purely abstract, they clearly speak to Keith’s varied influences.
Workshop Keith Rice-Jones hosts Zen and the Art of Space Sunday April 7. The workshop costs $56. Register at the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre by calling 604-467-7322 or recreg4u.ca. Keith Rice-Jones will also offer a talk on the exhibition, A Life In The Day on Saturday, April 13 at 11 a.m.

Defender to play for Team Canada Kelly Cook wraps up decorated university career with a chance to play for Canada
The Maple Ridge Lawn Bowling Club will be holding its opening day on Sunday, April 7 at noon. Mayor Ernie Daykin will be on hand to deliver the first bowl of the new season.
by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter
n what has to be the perfect cap to a university soccer career, Maple Ridge’s Kelly Cook has been selected to play for Canada at the World University Games in Russia this summer. The first round of tryouts were held in November, and Cook was invited to main camp, which took place over the weekend. Her soccer pedigree is impressive. Cook was the leader of an unbeatable UBC Thunderbirds defence. In the nine regular season games she played, the team gave up only five goals. Great at playing balls in the air, she moves in front of the opposing net for corners and set pieces, and scored two game-winning goals. She was named an All-Canadian twice – on the second team this season, and first team last year. However, she tried out for the World University Games team two years ago, and didn’t make the final cut. “It was tough [to take], but I didn’t really prepare for it,” she said. “There’s a lot more than just soccer skill that they’re looking for.” She knew it might take a special effort to make the team. In January, she started working hard on her fitness, aiming to increase her quickness and mobility on pitch. She picked local trainer Adam Francilia He says she has great potential as a soccer prospect, with strength and mental toughness, and making strides in her foot speed and agility. Turning 23 in August, he said: “She’s hitting her stride as an athlete now.” There were six centre defenders invited to camp and three would make the team. Cook was one of the first calls from coach Liz Jepsen, who is also the full-time coach with the University of Alberta. She crushed the fitness testing, and the Canadian team coaching staff also like the character she brings. “I was super excited,” she said. “She just said they were impressed with

UBC centre defender Kelly Cook heads the ball away from attackers during a game against the University of Regina Cougars. Her reliable defence and leadership qualities have the Maple Ridge woman chosen to play for the Canadian team going to the summer universiade in Russia. my skills, and that I bring a lot more than just that.” Leadership has been one of her great contributions to UBC in recent seasons. Gary Moody, UBC assistant coach, notes Cook has been Mrs. Everything as the team captain for two years. She solidifies the defence by being good aerially, having great anticipation, and being strong on the tackle. “She wears her heart on her sleeve. She’s the outgoing captain, and she’ll
be sorely missed,” he said. “I wish her everything she deserves.” She has played out a five-year scholarship at UBC, and now has a semester to go before she graduates with a degree in sociology. University soccer is done for her. She was on the Vancouver Whitecaps reserve team, but the women’s program has unfortunately folded, leaving Cook’s competitive soccer career suddenly very uncertain.
Except for this summer’s competition. The World University Games, July 6 to 17, will be held in Kazan, which is a centre of learning in Russia. In a city of 1.2 million people, some 200,000 are students. It is also steeped in history, as the Tatarstan city is 1,000 years old. It promises to be a great experience. “If I have to go out, this would be a great note to go out on.”
Sockeyes win Jr. B final With a straight sweep of the best-of-seven final series, the Richmond Sockeyes won the Pacific International Junior Hockey League Championship. They deposed the Aldergrove Kodiaks in four straight to win the title. It was Aldergrove who had eliminated the Ridge Meadows Flames.

Daly skates into Frozen Four by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter
Maple Ridge’s Tim Daly is part of a St. Cloud Huskies team that will be playing in the Frozen Four. The NCAA championship will be played in Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Centre, a sheet of ice normally patrolled by Sidney Crosby and Evgeny Malkin of the Penguins, on April 11. It is the first time that St. Cloud has ever placed in the Frozen Four. “The atmosphere here is pretty cool,” he said in a phone interview. “Fans were waiting for us at the airport when we got back. “It’s a pretty special time for our program” Sunday they beat Miami (Ohio) 4-1 in the regional tournament championship to advance to the Frozen Four. Along the way, the fourth-seeded Huskies also beat the top-seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Daly played for the Junior B Ridge Meadows Flames, then went on to two seasons with the Junior A Langley Rivermen, before accepting a scholarship to play at St. Cloud. In junior he added a

With the Huskies the sophomore gets a regular shift, plays on the second pairing in a shutdown role, and is a penalty killer. In two seasons, he has two goals and five points in 70 games played. He finished this year a plus five. “My job is to prevent
goals,” he said. “We’ve just got so many offensive guys up front, and
on our top defensive pair.” They favour a fun style of hockey to watch and to play – high tempo, emphasizing speed and creating offence. “We knew we had a special group going into the start of the season.” The Huskies will meet the Quinnipiac Bobcats in a semi-final game, and if they win, will advance to the final against the winner of a game between Yale and Massachusetts-Lowell on April 13. The SRT graduate played his minor hockey for the Burnaby Winter Club, and while there won a provincial championship at the pee wee level, and as a bantam won the provincial and Western Canadian championships. “In my hockey career, this is the highlight,” he said. “It’s just a huge experience.”

On January 28th 2011, Tristan had an unfortunate accident which left him with minimal use of his legs. Before his accident Tristan was an active long boarder. During his recovery and rehabilitation at GF Strong Rehabilitation Center, Tristan took up wheelchair racing. Here we are now, 2013; Tristan is training and working hard towards his racing goals. Last year Tristan was officially classified as a T54 athlete by the ISF (International Sport Federation), which is the classification for wheelchair racers with the most physical ability, full arm and partial to full trunk (back and abdominal) function, as well as arguably the most competitive class. Currently Tristan ranks 86th in the Men’s T54 100m; 57th in the Men’s 200m; 77th in the Men’s 400m; 35th in the Men’s 800m; and 70th in the Men’s 1500m internationally. We would like to invite you all out to join us in raising some money to help Tristan with his racing goals. Money raised will go towards equipment and travel expenses needed to help in Tristan’s wheelchair racing and training. Part of the proceeds will also be going to the BC Wheelchair Sports Association.
