Mother and two cubs causing most of the problems by Nei l Corbe tt staff reporter

Albion residents are upset that bear traps have been set up in their neighbourhood, and that a mother and her cubs will likely be killed. Jack Mosterd said the bears have been routinely visible for about three years. While some residents take necessary steps to ensure the bears don’t find a ready food source – he knows one neighbour who even freezes her garbage to suppress bear-enticing odours – others still carry on, business as usual. The main problem, he said, is those who put their garbage out the night before pickup. He believes there are about five bruins who frequent the area where the traps have been set, including a sow black bear, and her two juvenile offspring, who have been taught by their mother to find easy meals in the subdivision.

Pitt couple evicted from housing co-op Appealed decision under compassionate grounds by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter

Colleen Flanagan/The newS

Joan and Jim Fast are being evicted from Meadowlands Housing Co-op for housing their ill son for longer than allowed.

With a half-packed box at her feet, Joan Fast stops to rest on a couch with a cup of tea. For the past few weeks, she’s been slowly chipping away at packing all her possessions. “I pack a little every day,” says a defeated Fast, who is being evicted from Meadowlands Co-

op in Pitt Meadows, a home she’s shared with her husband Jim for 11 years. The Fasts admit they breached the cooperative’s rules, which don’t allow guests to stay beyond a period of 60 days. But when their son David, who suffers from a debilitating skin condition, was unable to work, they took him in. He’s been living with them at the Advent Road complex since February. “I can’t throw him out on the street. I’m not that kind of a parent,” says Jim Fast. The couple claims they told the

cooperative that their son was going to be living with them temporarily until he healed and got back on his feet. They hoped the cooperative would accommodate them on compassionate grounds. Joan Fast had a pacemaker put in about a month ago. She’s also recovering from a stroke. But after the Fasts failed to comply with a warning, the cooperative issued an eviction notice. The Fasts appealed and lost. Their only recourse now is fighting the eviction in B.C. Supreme Court.

“We were open about David being here,” said Jim Fast, noting the eviction notice arrived a week before the co-op’s annual general meeting, where he was planning to run for president. With a June 30 eviction date looming, the Fasts have nowhere to go. They are seniors on a fixed income and have been paying $550 monthly for a two-bedroom home. Their options are limited. “I’m 80 years old and I have to find a place to live,” said Fast. “It’s pretty hard. No matter what happens, we are going to move.” See Co-op, p10

Taxes trimmed down to 3.9 per cent

Gaming centre hours changed

Maple Ridge council tells staff to continue restraint for next four years by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

After paring down the total property tax increase for this year to an average 3.9 per cent, Maple Ridge council is continuing its restraint into the future and is telling staff to do the same for the next four years. Guidelines issued to staff last week call for total tax increases of 3.6 per cent in 2014, 3.8 per cent for the two years after that and 3.98 per cent for 2017 and 2018, giving taxpayers a break from previous years, when they faced hikes of five and six per cent. “We’re trying our best,” Mayor Ernie Daykin said last week. The lower numbers came after council, at its May 13 meeting, told staff to cut more from the annual increases of about 4.5 per cent, sketched out in the financial plan last December. Reining in tax increases means deciding which projects go ahead and which don’t. Daykin said the district hasn’t launched any new programs in the past couple years and still hasn’t allotted any money for its recently adopted new parks master plan, which should save half a per cent. “We’re all out there. We’ve heard the same message from different people,” Daykin said earlier. “What’s happening is, we’re not doing things.” Neither has the district hired two people for trail maintenance after the Haney Horsemen Association backed away from its volunteer chores a few years ago. “We’re trying to trend it downwards and, of course, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business has a different view. “They think we should be going backwards.” This year, however, Maple Ridge is spending about a million dollars on repaving roads. “We could not spend that and save 1.1 or 1.2 per cent on our tax bill. But it’s going to be done at some point and that’s just putting off the problem for someone else. “We could not do a whole bunch of things and let a council in five or 10 years worry about it. “I don’t think that’s responsible.” But Daykin pointed out over the course of seven years, Maple Ridge’s general municipal taxes have gone from four-per-cent yearly increases to 2.25 per cent. The guideline for next year is a 2.25-per-cent increase, only for general municipal purposes. “We want you to hit 2.5 per cent. If you can do less, great.” On the other hand, the district has to pay, through its sewage charges, for its share of Metro Vancouver projects, such as improving the Lions Gate sewage treatment plant on the North Shore, at a cost of $450 million, or $800 million for the Iona Island sewage

Maple Ridge is spending about a million dollars on repaving roads this year. treatment plant. Coun. Corisa Bell wants a review of municipal finances to see what would be necessary to achieve a zero-per-cent tax increase. She also wants to start financial planning on a five-year basis rather than going year by year on a rolling five-year plan. This year’s budget, for which tax notices are now in the mail, includes a half-a-per cent increase that goes into a special fund for fixing roads, as well as jumps in water and sewer rates of 5.5 and 4.5 per cent, respectively. Council also has some plans to funnel more money into the fund for roads and sidewalks and sewers. The increase in gaming revenue of $550,000 will go into the fund, while any money from the growth in the downtown will be funneled there, as well. To help the Hammond Interfor Forest Products mill remain viable, there also will be a $70,000 tax reduction for each year starting 2014 and continuing to 2018. Maple Ridge resident Jim Eaton is not a happy taxpayer. He says his overall property tax bill has gone up 10 per cent. He’s now paying $4,200 in municipal taxes compared to $3,800 last year. He has no street lights or sidewalks in front of his house. “That’s too high from what I’ve got here.” “There is no extra services in my area. Actually, services where I live have gone down. It’s obvious to me that our mayor and council are not getting the message. There is no way property taxes should go up every year.” Eaton disagrees with a few expenditures by the dis-

trict – the stained-glass public art fixture on Lougheed Highway and 224th Street, and the multi-use bike path running east of 224th Street on Abernethy Way, which could be paved over when the road is widened. “I just think they keep wasting money.”

‘Cities on decade-long spending spree’ According to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, Canada’s big cities are on the road to ruin. Spending is outpacing population growth by three times, in the last 12 years, the federation said last week. The rest of the country’s cities aren’t doing any better because in the last decade, inflation-adjusted spending grew by 55 per cent, while populations only grew by 12 per cent. “From 2000 to 2011, city staff in all Canadian municipalities increased by 25 per cent, more than double population growth,” says Mike Klassen, CFIB B.C. director of provincial affairs. “Combine that with wages and benefit packages that are more than one-third higher than comparable occupations in the private sector, and you can begin to understand the causes of overspending by our cities. It adds up to a cost of over $10,000 per Canadian family of four during the same period.” Maple Ridge’s own numbers though, in its 2012 Citizen’s Report, shows only a $10 increase in debt per capita in the last five years, to $539 for a population of 78,124. And total expenses have only increased about $6 million from 2008 to 2012 to $138 million.

They’ll be rolling up the streets an hour earlier in Maple Ridge’s community gaming centre, to keep the old folks down the hill happy. After receiving a petition with 22 names, council approved a resolution changing the hours – from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week, to midnight closings from Sunday to Thursday and 1 a.m. closings on Friday and Saturday nights. The resolution will be sent to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch as part of the liquor application process. One resident said there were enough liquor premises in the area that another liquor establishment isn’t needed. Residents of Rosewood Court on 227th Street wanted the midnight closing time because of the noise and air pollution and speeding traffic on 227th Street. Midnight closings also have worked well in Fraserview Village Hall for the last decade, they point out. Out of 1,762 letters sent to nearby owners, only two residents responded individually, along with the petition. Residents in the nearby Marks Places condominium complex wanted an acoustical fence built to separate the gaming centre parking lot from the homes, as well as subdued parking lot lighting. Total capacity for the liquor licence is 667 people, with 192 seats in the bingo parlour and 150 seats at the slot machines and 82 seats in the bar.

Caring voice leaving Maple Ridge municipal reception desk Diana Dalton retiring after 20 years with district by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Ever complained about your taxes, or your neighbour’s messy lot, unresponsive politicians or confusing bylaws? Chances are, Diana Dalton heard

your complaint and your concerns and probably let you vent a bit so you didn’t feel so bad, then relayed your issue to the proper person in the District of Maple Ridge. But as of Friday, that’s no more because Dalton has worked her last day after 20 years in the frontline position. “I’d say it’s bittersweet, leaving the people behind,” Dalton said hours before she was to step down from the command centre for good. “Moving on to retirement is always

exciting.” Although she’s been in the same job since 1993, she said the tasks haven’t changed that much, figuring out who to connect to who and keeping people happy while she does so. Maple Ridge is one of the few municipalities that still has a person manning the phone. What has changed though is the volume of calls that come into district hall daily. As the municipality grows, more people call. She estimates she

takes about 100 calls daily now, over five days a week, 48 weeks a year . . . Mayor Ernie Daykin said Dalton has been recognized two times before and said she was “much more” than a receptionist. “She’s an ambassador. “She’s going to be missed.” Dalton said she was able to keep smiling and joking because of the way other people treated her. “Because of all the smiles I got everyday. It was sort of like paying it forward.”

New suburb is suburban sprawl: Bell Only one councillor opposes proposal by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

One Maple Ridge councillor voted against a new suburb last week, calling the proposal sprawl. Council gave third reading to the development of 91 acreage homes on 269th Street in east Maple Ridge. The proposal is simply urban sprawl, Coun. Corisa Bell said Wednesday. “I just think it’s absolutely incredible that we’re approving this development.” The 162 acres are one of the last major pieces of property vacant for such development and will go next to existing neighbourhoods of the same type. Creus Engineering, on behalf of a numbered company (640724 B.C. Inc.), wants to rezone the site to allow the new acreages, which will have septic fields for sewage treatment. Metro Vancouver municipal water is available nearby,

preventing any requirement for drawing from the groundwater supply for domestic water. The proposal has been revised and downsized since it was first before council last year. Now, 61 acres of land will be allotted to streamside protection, including the main stems of Cooper and McFadden creeks, both of which contain fish. Five other tributaries to McFadden Creek are also on the property. Three new wetlands areas will be created during construction that will trap rain runoff and biofiltrate it before it’s discharged into nearby streams. Mayor Ernie Daykin said acreage lots are consistent with the type of development that’s taken place in eastern Maple Ridge for years. “If it was urban development outside the urban boundary (approximately 248th Street) – big problem. “This is rural development, to rural standards.” With Metro Vancouver water nearby, and use of septic systems, infrastructure costs to the municipality will be minimized.

A study on measures that will be taken to trap stormwater runoff from roofs and driveways will be verified by a third party to ensure it’s accurate, he added. Coun. Bob Masse said he weighed the pros and cons and supported the new suburb, although he Bell wants a pedestrian path built on 269th Street to help people cope with the increased traffic the development will bring, and says the developer should pay for improved street lighting. He agreed that infrastructure costs would be minimized and said there’s already a fire hall on 272nd Street and that local schools have capacity. But, “I think, by definition, that is urban sprawl and I wouldn’t argue with the negative connotation.” However, the expensive homes will attract higher income residents to Maple Ridge, he added. “That brings something to the economy of the community too.”

But Bell says that suburb will be built in dense (second-growth) forest with abundant wildlife. “The rest of the community will now be subsidizing this development because these milliondollar homes are not going to pay for (services) themselves by their taxes. So the taxpayers of the community are going to subsidize this development.” The development will be located next to existing acreages and will be accessed by extending 269th and 271st streets northward. The staff report also says that the type of housing proposed fits with the designation on the area that’s in the official community plan. Bell pointed out existing residents nearby can’t even get a sidewalk to protect them from growing traffic and says the district should review its OCP as well as its development policies.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Education issues Education was hardly a burning issue in the provincial election, leaving many educators, trustees and administrators – not to mention parents – scratching their heads. Cash-strapped school districts were expecting to hear something specific about a long-term vision for funding a 21st century education system. But whatever was in the political kit bags of the two party front-runners was lost in debates over who would better handle the economy. Meanwhile, districts across the province are slashing budgets to keep spending in line with funding, holding the line while expectations for smaller classes, support for special needs and help for children with learning disabilities, technology and other demands increase. So where was the talk about building a sustainable funding system for schools? Where was the leadership given last year’s labour unrest that resulted in many clubs and sporting events being cancelled? It was drowned out by political recriminations on both sides. Now, though, Premier Christy Clark is re-floating an earlier trial balloon to seek a 10-year labour agreement with teachers. While it’s true that labour peace would surely benefit the education system, it’s hard to see how making the BCTF eat crow so soon after the election (many teachers thought they’d be dealing with a friendly NDP government) is going to bring this about. And because the issue hardly came up, it’s hard to argue the 10-year deal is part of her mandate. For many people, what’s needed first is a new, more equitable funding formula that doesn’t pit urban school districts against rural districts for scarce cash. Once a long-term vision for funding is revealed, then Ms. Clark might be in a better position to work with teachers on the vaunted 10-year labour deal. But until then, all she’ll accomplish with re-writing the teachers’ labour contract is more instability in schools. – Black Press

Enbridge pipeline isn’t dead yet VICTORIA – One of Premier Christy Clark’s first tasks of the new term will be to resume trade talks with Alberta and Saskatchewan. Several daunting tasks await. Clark must repair relations with Alberta Premier Alison Redford after B.C. Views B.C.’s theatrics over Tom Fletcher oil pipelines before the election, and prepare for the results of a federal environmental review of the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal in the fall. Some people were surprised on Friday when the B.C. government released its final written submission to the federal environmental review panel on Northern Gateway. It was widely interpreted as B.C.’s outright rejection of the project, but it’s not as simple as that. Clark and B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake signalled several times before the election that they were not getting the answers they wanted from Enbridge. But they stuck to the principle that the hearings must be completed. The NDP repeated for months that the B.C. Liberal government had forfeited its own review and handed jurisdiction over the environmental assessment to Ottawa. In fact, a pipeline that runs across two provinces is by definition a matter of federal jurisdiction. B.C. could have held its own parallel set of hearings, which was the NDP’s stated preference, but in no circumstance does

the province have a veto. And both the B.C. Liberal government and Enbridge were careful to leave the door open for further talks. A closer reading of their comments shows that the key difference at this stage is one of timing. “The panel must determine if it is appropriate to grant a certificate for the project as currently proposed on the basis of a promise to do more study and planning after the certificate is granted,” Lake said. “Our government does not believe that a certificate should be granted before these important questions are answered.” According to Enbridge executive Janet Holder, those important questions can’t all be answered until the hearings are over. The company maintains that every river crossing and spill response plan can’t be done in detail during the twoyear hearings. B.C.’s final submission runs to nearly 100 pages. It goes into detail on the inconsistencies and unanswered questions on such vital topics as whether diluted bitumen can sink in water. In short, the province argues that it can sink if the oil is in fresh water, or if it is exposed to weathering so lighter fractions evaporate, or if it is mixed with sediments that increase its density. These are pertinent conditions if heavy oil were to leak into a river in springtime, when water runs fast and cold and brown with sediment. Then there are the obstacles presented by responding to a spill in remote wilderness and heavy snow. Given both provincial and aboriginal opposition in B.C., the Enbridge

pipeline is unlikely to be imposed, and last week Conservative cabinet minister James Moore clearly ruled that out. The B.C. government has consistently maintained that the current project does not meet Clark’s often-repeated five conditions, including the vaguely defined “fair share” of revenues, and Moore said the federal government agrees with those conditions.

“If heavy oil pipelines are such a risk, how does B.C. manage the one that has stretched across remote and populated areas for 60 years?” The B.C. government has to face some other uncomfortable realities as well. If heavy oil pipelines are such a risk, how does B.C. manage the one that has stretched across remote and populated areas for 60 years? Does the government take a stand against new pipelines, and then watch as rail cars full of heavy oil cross those same rivers? No permit is required for that, and in fact there are more hazardous materials than oil moving by rail and road across the province today.

The News/letters No excuse for insane property tax increases Editor, The News: I just received my property taxes from Maple Ridge and my taxes have gone up 10 percent, which is simply insane. There are no extra services in my area. Actually, services where I live have gone down. It’s obvious to me that our mayor and council are not getting the message. There is no way property taxes should go up every year. I would think that a 3.9 percent increase is on the minority side and still no excuse to increase property taxes every year. It seems to me that Maple Ridge loves to waste money that they don’t have and the property owners are paying for it with tax increases.

We were very impressed and no doubt this year was the best ever. Kudos and hats off to the organizers, many volunteers, and all the participants. We are proud to be members of this fine community. Don Chelada and Barbara Brown Pitt Meadows

online comments Make the effort • Tony Allen: Re: Good reasons not to use garburator (mapleridgenews.com) I recycle and compost, and have next to no food waste. I have made the effort that many people in Maple Ridge have done, but there seems to be a bunch of people who want those of us who have made this effort to pay for their choice of not doing so. If you have food waste, then maybe look at what you are doing wrong, cook what you need and eat what you cook. City garbage collection, if you need your garbage picked up, use one of the garbage companies that serve others in Maple Ridge.

Full service • Cheryl Zandbergen · University of Calgary: Re: Good reasons not to use garburator (mapleridgenews.com) Thank for your response, Tony. I totally agree that the best solution would be for everyone to do their own composting, although that is not a reality for many in our city as they live in high-density housing or simply do not want to be inconvenienced by taking it on themselves. My family does compost and recycles regularly, and we have much less than one garbage can per week. However, that could be improved upon if food scraps that are not suitable for backyard composting were properly composted by the city (i.e. animal scraps). Also, we do pay for one of the main disposal companies to pick up our garbage, but I find it disappointing that we can’t just all use one company to reduce the air emissions from all of the unnecessary trucks in the streets. Better yet, have recycling, garbage and organic waste picked up at the same time. There are at least two major garbage disposal companies driving up and down each street in addition to the recycling trucks. That could be reduced by three times if we had full city services like many of our neighbouring municipalities.

Vasts amounts of the Pitt Polder have been stripped of all vegetation.

Destruction of Pitt Polder Editor, The News: Having extensively toured the southern U.S. in the past couple of years, one can only marvel at how well they preserve and protect the wetlands.   Through the tireless efforts of Ducks Unlimited and other conservation organizations, vast areas have been preserved in perpetuity.

Even those areas in close proximity to major population centres remain relatively unspoiled by human encroachment.   Then there is the Pitt Polder. Formerly one of the wonders of the Lower Mainland for its diversity of wildlife and pristine wilderness, the area is now almost unrecognizable. Vast areas of the Polder

have been virtually stripped of all vegetation by greedy, uncaring developers.   Drainage sloughs have been filled in, while at the same time vast amounts of water has been diverted from local rivers to irrigate the cranberry fields that now cover the majority of the Polder.   All that is left is the Pitt Marsh, where a demarcation

line has been drawn to preserve the remaining wetlands in the vicinity of Pitt Lake.   The destruction of the Polder is a classic example of what happens when money-hungry municipalities give free rein to developers, without thought as to the consequences of their shortsighted decisions.   George Clarke Maple Ridge

Mr. Fletcher, unfortunately, misguided again Editor, The News: Re: BCTF digs in for endless war (B.C. Views, May 29). Once again Tom ‘Old Man’ Fletcher goes hard on the rhetoric and soft on the facts.   First, the BCTF never called for an NDP government. The teachers called for change – change that would result in improvements for students and for a halt to the relentless attacks by the Liberal government on the profession.   Second, the term “classroom-warfare radicals” used to describe classroom teachers is far off the mark. The suggestion is that if you stand up for what you believe in and stand up for

What is Maple Ridge becoming?

children, then you must be condemned as a radical.   How misguided and unfortunate.   I would guess then that Mr. Fletcher wouldn’t mind being called the same for his constant attempts to protect his friends in the right-wing Liberal party.   Third, “self-absorbed teachers” is not how I would describe a group of 40,000 adults who take care of this province’s children, with deteriorating classroom conditions, fewer resources, demoralizing comments from government, a push for private intervention, and a technology driven agenda.   Fourth, to suggest that the

teachers’ wage proposal “was outrageously out of touch with reality” makes no sense when the dollar number came from an average of Canadian provinces.  

“The actual outrageous proposal is that the Liberals and Mr. Fletcher think that B.C. teachers should sacrifice more than the rest of the country.” The actual outrageous proposal is that the Liberals and Mr. Fletcher think that B.C.

teachers should sacrifice more than the rest of the country.   Fifth, in order to answer the question, “What is this ghastly ‘status quo’ that must be challenged by ‘direct action,’ we need look no further than the right-wing agenda to demolish the social contract through privateering, corporatization, greed, and corruption.   That will take direct action and all are invited to join in that fight. It amuses me how the right-wing is always ready to demonstrate how frightened they are of a bunch of teachers. Todd Patrick Maple Ridge

The Fund Run was an instant hit when it began 10 years ago as a hospital fundraiser, and that first run garnered approximately $4,000. The 10th annual Fund Run was held on Sunday at Fairview elementary with 336 runners taking part, and it raised more than $33,000. “It was awesome. We had a record number of runners, we did over $33,000, and we really had a party,” said Laura Butler, the development officer for the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. There were 101 runners in the 10-km event. First place in the men’s competition was won by Patrick Jones, while the fastest woman was Saraiya Abdulla. Another 235 ran the 5-km, and in first place was Ron Antalek, the chairman of the hospital foundation, while the fastest female was Deborah States. The Van Pelt family, which has four generations of Fund Run participants, took home two picnic baskets loaded with fresh pasta and sauces for raising more than $5,000 in pledges. There were more than 20 teams from the hospital and the community, and 30 hospital departments were represented as either participants or volunteers. The kids run saw about 35 participants under the age of 10 scoot a loop around Fairview elementary and cross the finish line to great cheering and applause.  They each received a participant ribbon, goodie bags, and coloured and decorated their running bibs. Over its 10 years, the Fund Run has raised more than $225,000 for equipment for the hospital. With music, a sunny day, and food and music donated by local businesses, it was a festive atmosphere for the anniversary celebration. “It was really great to acknowledge everyone who has done such a good job supporting the hospital foundation for 10 years,” said Butler. This year the foundation has committed to fund more than $550,000 to purchase essential equipment for Ridge Meadows Hospital, to fund programs in the community that encourage healthy living, and provide research and education opportunities for medical staff.  • See complete results at www.sportstats.ca.

‘Not afraid’ There is also a boar who has “not been causing trouble,” and at least one other bear. “They’re not afraid of people, because they’ve been here so long,” said Mosterd. One trap has been set in the area of 243 Street

and 102 B Avenue. It is essentially a steel barrel with bait, designed to catch the bears alive. However, residents have learned from conversation officers that the bears may have to be put down. “I love animals,” said Mosterd. “When an animal has to be killed, it just bothers me.” “I told them, ‘You guys

are taking the easy way out – it’s easier to trap them and kill them.’” Conservation officer Denny Chretien said killing the bears is a last resort, but there have been repeated issues of bears getting into garbage in the Albion area over the past three years. “They are gaining in age, and they are gaining in their habituation, and

Under B.C.’s Cooperative Association Act and Cooperative Association Regulations, a member can be evicted for three reasons: non-payment of housing fees; a breach of the occupancy agreement; or conduct detrimental to the housing cooperative. The act, though, sees eviction as a remedy of last resort. “A cooperative is people banding together to help one and another achieve a better way of life,”

“Compassion for a difficult family situation should be the first order of business. When people of this age bracket can be thrown out into the street, something is surely wrong with the operation of this cooperative.” Meadowlands is a housing coop for seniors over 60 years of age. It was not set up as a family residence when it was incorporated in 1979. Meadowslands’ board of directors stresses it has given the Fasts several chances to comply. “We have a member who has been breaking the co-op rules,” said manager Glenda Pohl. “We

Fast said. “This coop is run like a concentration camp. You can’t do this and you can’t do that.” For Lou Rene Legge, who is Jim’s bridge partner and friend, the Fasts’ plight epitomizes unfairness. “Although this co-op is a government-funded cooperative through Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and B.C. Housing, there appears to be no mechanism available to protect the rights of cooperative members from an overzealous board,” says Legge, who has appealed to MLAs Marc Dalton and Doug Bing to help the Fasts.

are following the procedures and the advice from our lawyer.” The Fasts’ appeal was voted on via a special resolution that required 66 per cent of membership votes to pass. The co-op has 84 members. According to board president Shirley Quinn, it’s the second time the Fasts have allowed their son to live with them. “The first time was on and off between 2010 and 2011,” said Quinn. “This time, it’s been since February. We’ve been as compassionate as we can be. The rules are the rules.”

they are definitely food conditioned to nonnatural food sources,” he said. Now the bears are going onto decks and porches, and even in the back of pickups. “And they don’t shoo away at all when they encounter people,” Chretien said, noting they will move away, but not far, and they soon return. “You have food-conditioned bears living amongst humans, with no fear of them,” said the conservation officer, adding these are cues that a bear may become dangerous. “That threshold of human safety is really close,” said Chretien. While black bears are generally shy of humans, every year in B.C. there are cases of people being attacked. Last year, a Whistler man was sitting in his hot tub when a bear approached him from behind, and swatted his head. Just as getting between a mother bear and her cubs can be dangerous, Chretien said a close second is getting between a juvenile bear and a food source. He added there is a

playground in the area. “We can’t have it [an attack on a child] happen.” The pre-adult bears and their mother are causing a lot of the problems and concern. Chretien said he has been watching them over a period of three years, and has determined some may indeed have to be killed. “It’s sad, and that’s not what we want to do.” He said a bruin was trapped there last year, but it was not the problem bears he was looking for, and it was relocated. Chretien said, to date, he has only warned people about putting out their garbage the night before pickup, but he noted it is a ticket-able offence, and he could write offenders a $230 fine. Bird feeders are also a problem, as bears will climb trees and get the seed, and barbecues with food scraps on them are another common attractant. There are other areas of Maple Ridge that have similar levels of human-bear conflict, but Chretien noted they are generally in less densely populated areas.

Pitt to celebrate 100th anniversary Stor y and photos by Colleen Flanagan The annual Pitt Meadows Day Parade included 76 floats and 1,300 participants Saturday. Even bigger things are expected next year, though, as the City of Pitt Meadows will celebrate its 100th anniversary. “We’ll probably have a parade that’s themed on heritage, so we’ll be encouraging people to pick a decade or pick an activity and give it a heritage twist,” said Rick Higgs, president of the Pitt Meadows Day Society. He is also hoping to have pre-fireworks entertainment at Pitt Meadows Athletic Park. “Hopefully we can have somewhere between two to four acres that would be available in the field adjacent to the double ball diamonds where the fireworks go off so that people can come, toss out a blanket and enjoy some music before the fireworks show.” Higgs encourages anyone interested to volunteering to email him at f.g.higgs@gmail.com. • For this year’s parade winners, visit mapleridgenews.com.

leadersoftomorrow Sydney Pain

Introducing our Leaders of Tomorrow

Albion elementary

Sydney Pain, a Grade 4 student at Albion elementary, is passionate about life and is a talented athlete.

The Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows News is pleased to offer the first edition of ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’ in which we celebrate local students who have excelled in academics, athletics, the arts and community involvement.

She currently plays soccer in the community on a U11 select team – a division above her own age. During the soccer off-season, she plays lacrosse for the Ridge Meadows Burrards.

Special thanks to Irena Pochop, Manager of Communications at School District #42 for her help in coordinating this project and to all the principals of S.D. #42 for committing their time and expertise to select students worthy of recognition.

Sydney enjoys playing team sports, as she likes working with others towards a common goal. In physical education classes, Sydney is always positive and encouraging towards her peers. She will help others out with skill development and celebrate in their accomplishments, too.

Keep in mind that this was not a competition, and there are many hard working, talented and deserving young people who could have been selected, but our principals went above and beyond to provide us with a sample of youth who exemplify the qualities of excellence, maturity and leadership.

When asked about helping others, she says: “Seeing other people smile makes me feel really good.” Academically, Sydney is a solid student. Her favourite subjects, aside from PE, are science and social studies. She really enjoyed doing an animal research project in science last term. She is an active participant in the school community, joining both Bookfest and the Reading Link Challenge. Sydney also has a passion for animals, especially dogs. She says animals are helpless and need our assistance. A few summers ago, Sydney organized a lemonade stand in her neighbourhood, with proceeds going to the local SPCA.

So, please enjoy ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’ and be comfortable in the knowledge that our future is in good hands.

In high school, Sydney would love to learn about mythology, a topic she finds fascinating. Her academic goal is to achieve straight As on a report card sometime.

Jim Coulter Publisher Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows News

Her ultimate goal, however, is to continue to play soccer, one day professionally.

Tiahna Cole Albion elementary

Tiahna Cole decided at a young age that she would be an athlete. She has played a variety of sports over the past number of years, including soccer, baseball, gymnastics, swimming, and lacrosse. At times she has had to choose one sport over another due to time constraints, even though she enjoys participating in all of them.

In school, Tiahna takes her academics seriously. Her favourite subject is math, especially multiplication. Intuitively, she knows she will enjoy learning division, once her class gets to that point. Tiahna enjoys helping others; it makes her feel good. This year, she and some friends are organizing the “Pawsitive Walk” in the community, to raise money for the local SPCA and Katie’s Place animal shelter. When the school organizes an event to raise money for a charity, she gets behind it 100 per cent, and tries her best to raise money for the charity.

For her, it’s not about the incentive prizes that you receive for raising money. It’s about the good feeling she gets knowing that she is helping others. In the future, Tiahna wants to be either a lawyer, veterinarian, or marine biologist. She knows that all of these professions require a lot of education, but says the time and effort will be worth it. She is not sure exactly which one she will choose, but as she sees it, in each of these professions, she will be able to help others.

leadersoftomorrow Alicia Hiebert

Jia Kim

Alexander Robinson elementary

Blue Mountain elementary

Alicia Hiebert is an all-round amazing kid. Not only does she do well in school, she is kind and helpful to everyone. She is always willing to help out around the classroom and school.

Jia Kim is a Grade 6 student at Blue Mountain elementary. She regularly exhibits the characteristics that we value in a leader.

Her compassion pours into everything that she does and she goes out of her way to include everyone, including the special needs children she works with at the school. She always has a ‘hello,’ a hug and kind words and compliments for students with special needs.

She makes a difference in our classroom and school, without the need to be in the spotlight. 

She is calm, always good-natured, and ready to assist anyone who needs it.

Besides helping her fellow students in class, and being first to volunteer for any and all extra work and projects, Jia often spends her recess helping out with the Kindergarten class.

Alicia challenges herself do her best at her schoolwork. She has a passion for Me to We, which is an initiative of Free the Children, helping raise money and awareness for clean water projects in Kenya. She is also involved in many extra-curricular activities in and outside of school, such as DSAC, softball, soccer, babysitting, bottle drives, volleyball, dances, leading assemblies, announcing, singing, and swimming.

“Alicia believes we all need to become involved in changes.” Alicia’s most memorable school moment was when she and four friends worked hard for a month on an anti- bullying day hip-hop dance. They had matching outfits and their moves were in perfect sync. On the day of the presentation, with the whole school watching, the music was not working. It was embarrassing and some others were crying. But Alicia’s positive leadership shone through as she kept telling them, “It is not how we did, what counts, it’s that we did something, and we did great.” In future, Alicia plans to become a special education assistant. She loves working with children, especially children with special needs. That is a passion for her. Alicia believes we all need to become involved in changes. She is committed to continuing with Me to We. Free the Children is saving lives, supporting Third World countries, and changing the world. “Love like there’s no tomorrow, she says, “care like it is tomorrow, and lead because we are tomorrow.”

Jia manages to also excel academically, producing work of above average quality.

“Jia believes that bullying is wrong and will step in to say something if she sees it happening.”

Finally, Jia is a gifted artist. Her drawings and artwork are exceptional. Jia is an active member of the Whonnock Lake Canoe and Kayak Club and races every summer with her team.   Jia is a unique, compassionate and talented individual who truly leads by example. She is really proud that she recently took part in the Pink Day assembly at Blue Mountain, and wore a pink shirt to show that she supports people everywhere who may be getting bullied. Jia believes that bullying is wrong and will step in to say something if she sees it happening. She is an advocate for herself and for her peers. Jia would like to be a primary school teacher when she grows up. She likes helping young children and wants to help them grow up to be great readers and writers.

leadersoftomorrow Haley Murgatroyd Eric Langton elementary

Haley Murgatroyd, in Grade 7 at Eric Langton elementary, is a proactive person who understands that she can make a positive difference in the world. 

Celebrating our Community’s Young Leaders. past, present and future!

Following a field trip to a small park on the border of our school property, and discovering that it was littered with garbage, Haley decided to write a letter to our local paper, complaining about the risks for the community children.  Due to her letter, the city decided to clean up the park and make it safer for the locals to use.  

“Due to her letter, the city decided to clean up the park and make it safer for the locals to use.”

At her school, Haley has been participating in the District Student Advisory Council since 2011 and has been a student leader. In November, following a DSAC meeting, Haley became passionate about the “Pennies for Water” initiative through the Free the Children charity. This will provide water for life for someone in a third world country for just $25 in pennies. She has volunteered to produce and manage the fundraising efforts. In the future, she wants to be a teacher. “I love school and enjoy helping people.”

Emma Walsh

Hailey McIntosh

Samantha Grimason, in Grade 7, is easily one of the most mature and responsible students in her class. She has not only helped with numerous classroom duties, but demonstrated care for her fellow classmates and regularly offers to help students who need assistance.

Glenwood elementary Emma Walsh, a Grade 3 student at Glenwood elementary, has shown great concern for the environment. For example, she recently came forward to say that she noticed there was a lot of garbage on the way to school. She asked her mom if she could help clean up the trash, and together they picked it up. Emma is also an active member of the Maple Ridge Recycling Society, and a positive and contributing member of the Glenwood community. She enjoys singing with her mom while collecting donations for the Salvation Army Christmas Kettles.  She recently participated in the Sound of Music in her theatre class.

Glenwood elementary

Hailey McIntosh, a Grade 6 student at Glenwood elementary, is an active member of the District Student Advisory Council, and has helped with food drives in the school. 

Samantha has shown a variety of leadership skills in and out of school this year by helping in the school office, organizing classroom activities and fundraising through her extra-curricular activities.

She regularly monitors younger peers at lunch time and is called upon by teachers to help others.

Through hard work and constant determination, Samantha has achieved The Principal’s List, and always puts forth outstanding effort in all her academic courses. She is a well-liked individual in the school and her cheerful disposition contributes to a positive classroom community.

In the community, she volunteers at the SPCA. She is an excellent speaker, shown by her speech last year for the school’s Glenwood’s 50th anniversary celebration. In addition, when her mom was ill last year, she helped look after her four-year-old sister.

A memorable moment for her was receiving the best score on her math test in January. “This is exciting for me because in the past, math has been a struggle.”

Hailey has shown courage, advocating positively for peers who may not be able to do so for themselves. She is a model citizen and future leader.

In the future, she wants to be a hair stylist or a chef or a musician. “I play the flute, sing and dance.”

Emma has all the makings of a future leader.

Samantha is undoubtedly a leader of tomorrow.

Congratulations To All 2013 Outstanding Students

Sierrah Burrows & Danielle Lindenbach Fairview elementary

Sierrah Burrows and Danielle Lindenbach are two Fairview elementary students who stand out not only for their great academics, but also for their positive attitudes and awesome leadership. As members of the same local soccer team, they participate in food drives for their community food bank. Both girls are on the Fairview Leadership Team and have been active in bringing an antibullying message to younger students in the classrooms.

Brandon Zimmerman, co-owner of Haney Automotive, changes the brakes on a truck.

Danielle and Sierrah were leaders on Pink Shirt Day, when the students all made hearts to commit to creating a bully-free world.

HANEY AUTOMOTIVE

Both girls also are boosters of the school’s recycling program, and have taken on responsibilities above and beyond to make the program run smoothly. They also work with younger children to help them become better students.

Recognized by residents as the shop to go to. Known for Honest, Friendly, Quality workmanship. Owned and operated by brothers Brandon and Brad Zimmerman, Haney Auto was nominated for the 2012 “Business Excellence Award” by the Chamber of Commerce and is rated the #1 shop by readers of both local newspapers, 2011 and 2012. Considering there are 30 shops to choose from, “Team Haney is elated with these results.

Both girls are active in school sports, with Danielle playing on the volleyball and basketball teams, and Sierrah playing on the volleyball team and being a lead athlete in track. These girls are wonderful citizens who have contributed positively to the school and their community. We look forward to seeing great things from them in the future.

Shaylen Hardy

Everyone sees her as a trustworthy individual who tries her best and works well with everyone.  

CALL FOR DETAILS.

Shaylen is also a passionate athlete and volunteer. Her sensitivity makes her a true humanitarian, one who cares deeply about the well-being of those around her.

TESTIMONIAL “I was recommended Haney Automotive by a friend a while back and decided to try them out when the water pump blew on my car. They were professional, affordable, and fixed my car in no time. Above all, it was nice to see an independent family run business with a friendly atmosphere in this day and age of chain stores. A+ all around and I don’t think I’ll ever take a car anywhere else!!” Chris Patch 18/07/2012

Madison Andrews Kanaka Creek elementary

Madison Andrews is in Grade 6 at Kanaka Creek elementary and was nominated because she is an example to everyone. She is kind, personable and level-headed in all situations.  She has made many contributions to the school and the community: taking part in activities with the Me to We leadership group, personally raising money for cancer awareness, and every few years cutting her hair at the Relay For Life event. Her most memorable school moment was when she was the lead in the school play last year, and being asked for her autograph.

Jeffrey Sunshine, a Grade 7 student at Laity View elementary, is a kind and giving student who helps out whenever he can. Jeffrey is a leader on the school’s sound crew committee and plays for the Laity View basketball team. As a leader of our sound crew committee, he runs assemblies, dances and any other school presentations. Jeffrey also wrote and directed a song for his class to perform at the Christmas concert.

Jeffrey is an excellent student and a high-level hockey goaltender.

Her future plan is to become an author. “I am good at writing and hope to sell my adventurous books everywhere.” “I also hope that one day I could travel to Africa and teach there. I could raise money to help build more schools and create recreational activities there.”

His hard work and dedication to all he does will allow him to achieve whatever he sets his mind to. We are extremely proud that Jeffrey is a member of the Laity View community.

leadersoftomorrow Claire Bruce

Kanaka Creek elementary Claire Bruce, in Grade 6 at Kanaka Creek elementary, is a leader of tomorrow. “I think I was nominated because I’m in Me to We, and I try to show leadership in the school. Whenever there is a chance to make a difference I jump at it, because making the world a better place is what I live for,” she said.

The Future Starts in Your Own Backyard

Her most memorable school moment was when she organized a bake sale to help kids with cancer. “It took a lot of work, but it was worth it because I ended up raising around $575, and knowing that I helped a child in need, that feeling is priceless.”

“I hope to go to university to be a teacher, so I can be a mentor for kids”

Her future plans are to volunteer at the SPCA and join as many clubs in high school that benefit others or are trying to make the world a better place. “I hope to go to university to be a teacher, so I can be a mentor for kids and help them see that they can make the world a better place by doing just the simplest things,” she said. “You could drop off a can of soup at the food bank or you can donate your old clothes to Big Brothers. But the simplest thing you could do is give someone a smile. It can even be a stranger, but when you smile at someone, you’re making your day that much brighter.”

Magdalena Richardson Maple Ridge secondary

C.J. Schuetz

Within the hallways of Maple Ridge secondary, the name Magdalena Richardson echoes with respect as she strives for personal excellence with a kindness, integrity and modesty that changes the people around her.

C.J. Schuetz is a polite, cooperative student who goes out of her way to provide leadership to both the school and her community.  

Her passion is science. Having a conversation with her about the world of physics is comparable to observing how the little particles of our world might just be buzzing with life themselves.

Whonnock elementary

Her fascination with “bizarre little particles which don’t follow any rules” is so inspirational, it drives those around her to want to know more about the Superstring Theory (which is simply just called “The Theory of Everything”).

C.J. has been involved in every athletic team this year, as well as being part of school-based and district leadership teams.   She is also in a number of community based teams and clubs.   Even though she is involved in all of this, C.J. still maintains a straight-A average. Her teachers describe her as a hard working, caring individual who goes out of her way to help others.   C.J. has even sold her own art in order to give money to build a house for someone in the Dominican Republic. Her future plans include a mission trip with her youth group and sees herself in a profession someday where she is helping others

Magdalena’s position on getting acquainted with “everything” is simply that when she is finally able to do this, she will have helped unite the world that we know with all its four known forces. Magdalena’s charismatic energy drives her peers and others around her to want to focus on dark matter, “the four per cent of the universe we know about,” and other incredible discussions about astrophysics and quantum computing. Magdalena’s passion is compelling. She excels in academics (GPA 4.0) and presents her viewpoints with conviction (a top speaker at VMUN Convention), and is open to new ideas. Her connection to inspire others is as genuine as it is genius. As she compels those who, one minute before, simply did not care, she becomes visibly excited.

Andrew Wang

She has been a top debate competitor and coach of the MRSS debate club for two years. She developed a culture for a small group, which grew substantially with her at the helm, that led to positive transformations and a sense of belonging.

Andrew Wang, in Grade 10 at Thomas Haney Secondary School, is a leader in particular in the area of environmental awareness.

The beauty of her successes lies in the fact that even as Magdalena proves herself a brain to be reckoned with, she is appreciative of everyone who has been a step in her learning. She wrote a letter recently, a letter of thanks, that stated: “To have been able to keep up such an important part of the life at MRSS has been an honour and a privilege,” after she personally developed all the strategies for success herself.

Thomas Haney secondary

A member of the school’s eco-action group for several years, he recently applied for and received a grant from “learning for a sustainable future.”   Andrew has launched a school-wide composting program, installed a solar cone at the school, and oversees the school’s worm bins. His work is having an impact on waste reduction.

Magdalena is a brilliant young lady who has already asked, “What limits do people have?” The beauty in the way Magdalena approaches this is that she honestly projects her answer: We only have the limits we impose upon ourselves. She is a youth who truly is “out of this world.” Perhaps this inherent truth compelled her decision to be an astronaut. She will be living out her need to discover “quantum weirdness” in order to make the world a better place.

Rachael Thomas, 17, has an impressive record of leadership activities and volunteering both inside and outside of SRT.

Rachael is an active participant and leader in her school’s Link Crew program, in which she provides mentoring and leadership to younger students.

Lily’s most memorable school moment was when she received the Rick Hansen Award. This award made her feel special and excited, because earning it was her secret goal.

Additionally, Rachael volunteered part of her summer vacation to assisting staff and students at Thomas Haney secondary with its summer learning program.

“It felt great to achieve a secret goal, one that nobody but me knew about.” Lily would like to be a physiotherapist when she grows up. As a sports enthusiast, she would like to be able to assist athletes in keeping their bodies in the best condition possible, promoting a healthy lifestyle. Lily is also very aware of the environment. She is an active member of the recycling, composting and clean grounds team. Each day, Lily participates in keeping the school a clean, eco-friendly place.

Megna Srinivas Davie Jones elementary

Jazmin Amriks

Alexander Robinson elementary Jazmin takes the initiative to get involved in school affairs, including making announcements on the PA system and leading school assemblies. Joining Me to We, a Free the Children initiative, has improved her social skills, collaboration skills, and she’s now confident in sharing her thoughts and ideas. It’s made her more aware of what is happening to kids her age throughout the world.

Isaac Wray

Maple Ridge Christian High School We could all use the courage and resilience of Isaac Wray, graduating this year from MRCS. Isaac is a pioneer, making his own trails, never pressured to conform.

“I’m glad to know that I can make a difference and help these children and adults around the world.”

An avid and talented photographer, Isaac took a business management class outside of school this year to guide him in the development of his business, Golden Ears Photography. Besides working hard to achieve his professional and artistic goals, Isaac serves his community as well, having volunteered his time to countless events throughout his school career. Isaac is known for his dependability, energy, and leadership and he is making waves.

“Isaac is known for his dependability, energy, and leadership and he is making waves.”

Jazmin was inspired by the speakers when she attended We Day for the first time.

“Taking the time to get to know people instead of judging them firsthand, would make our world a more comfortable and accepting place to live in!”

Jazmin is mature and wise beyond her years and expects when she goes to SRT in the fall, she’ll be a leader in that school community too. She is positive and optimistic and presents her viewpoints in a mature manner. Jazmin says her most memorable school moment was the time when she, along with her friends, organized a penny drive in support of a clean water initiative in Kenya. A part of the responsibility was to go to all the other classrooms daily and collect their penny bags. “It was also rewarding to have that extra time to be with my friends. The bond between the four of us is now stronger than ever!” Jazmin believes “discrimination of other cultures or religions is one of the most ignored reasons of why our society is so troubled today. Taking the time to get to know people instead of judging them firsthand, would make our world a more comfortable and accepting place to live in!” “My experience being an Indo Canadian and being proud of my culture, traditional dress and religion has made me who I am today. I am very proud of my culture. I have even convinced my friends to do a dance to a Hindi song.”

Ridge piper on French battlefields Kevin McLean to play on D-Day

S

imon Fraser University piper Kevin McLean will play his bagpipes on stages of a different kind next week – the former battlefields of France.   The Maple Ridge piper has been invited to play during a week-long tour dubbed Vimy: Leadership Under Fire, and will perform on several First and Second World War battlefields, culminating with the famed Juno Beach McLean on D-Day (June 6), marking the battle’s 69th anniversary. McLean is the sole piper on the trip (with the exception of one other piper at Juno) and was introduced to organizers by a French piper with the SFU band, Xavier Bouderiou. After interviews and submitting recordings he was offered the role.  Retired military leaders, including Canada’s former chief of defense staff, General Rick Hillier, and historians will lead the third annual trek, aimed at introducing interested travelers, and Canadians in particular, to the historic sites.   In addition to beaches at Vimy and Dieppe the tour will visit the grave

of James Cleland Richardson, a piper with the Seaforth Highlanders who was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. His pipes were lost but eventually found and repatriated and are on display at the B.C. legislature in Victoria. He’ll play The Maple Leaf Forever, Canada’s unofficial national anthem of the time, among other tunes at the site. They’ll also stop at the grave of McLean’s great uncle – William McLean, who died during the 100-Day Offensive in 1918 and fought alongside his great grandfathers in the same battalion. It will be a memorable moment, says the younger McLean, who’ll play the traditional piobaireachd (classic music of the highland pipes) of the McLean Clan called The Fingerlock. McLean, a communication student at SFU, is also spearheading the band’s first fundraising campaign to raise funds for the group’s annual trip to Glasgow, Scotland to compete at the World Championships. • The band is vying for its seventh world title in August. To help and learn more, visit at.sfu.ca/ uFjqXm.

Set to be released June 10, the book delves into the questions of life that all teens face. What is the spiritual self? How must I journey to find my destiny and my true self? And what will I live for and die for? Snowflake Princess is a tale about a young girl named Ivory, and her mother Ebony, the naturalist’s world as a photographer, her journey around the lake, her detainment in a hospital, and her death. Controversial in its essence, it tells a story which is based on Isaacson’s own life, her stay in a psychiatric ward back in 2006 and the impact it had on her. Isaacson suffered from anorexia as a teenager, and eventually became a patient of Montreux, the world-famous eating disorder program based in Victoria, B.C. After her own recovery from being a 75-pound teenager, she went on to work at the centre, helping other patients and eventually became a nutritionist.

At 25, Isaacson was diagnosed with osteoporosis – an illness that resulted in depression that led to her life-changing stay in a psychiatric ward.

“When we witness... the suffering of others, do we turn away?” Emily Issacson, poet

files

Part proceeds from the book Snowflake Princess will go to the Amanda Todd Legacy Fund. Isaacson, who has written poetry since age 10, went on to write and publish more than 1,200 poems. This is her ninth book. Creating myth while dispelling others, Snowflake Princess is a work of fictional prosepoetry that tells the story of the naturalist, the philosopher and their young daughter, Snowflake Princess. The fantastical adventures that ensue are only part of this delightful and thought-provoking book about overcoming

life’s obstacles. It mirrors the struggle of Amanda Todd, a teenager who took her own life last year, after a struggle with depression and bullying. Isaacson borrows the title for her book from a nickname Carol Todd gave her daughter Amanda. “Amanda was my Princess Snowflake – every snowflake being unique and individual,” said Carol Todd.

Issacson says the story in Snowflake Princes is a testament to survival and the redemptive power of suffering. “It shows us that the way to death and the way to life exist on the same road,” she adds. “It portrays the members of family in a healing relationship and believes in the existence of support and community. When we see our frailty, our humanness in our world today, and witness the suffering of others, do we turn away, or come alongside the person so they can recover and heal? Do we want to become better people for what we have gone through? We must choose how we will respond.” The book details the death of a young woman and how it in turn affect her family and those around her. The Todd family has created a memorial fund to raise awareness about bullying and mental illness. Ten per cent of the book’s proceeds will be donated to the fund.

Book Launch Emily Isaacson hosts a book launch for Snowflake Princess at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 10 at Clearbrook Library in Abbotsford.

Rock on with School of Rock Summer’s almost here and Samuel Robertson Technical is set to showcase the talented musicians from its School of Rock. “There’s a real sense of community this year,” says music teacher Wes Reamsbottom. “They are so supportive of each other and I think it’s making them better. It’s not competitive, but more like a family. They’ve been a joy to teach.” Reamsbottom started the “school of rock” nine years ago as a club. It’s since grown into a regular high school course that’s set to be taught over seven blocks next year. Almost Famous, which features

Reamsbottom and another SRT teacher Steve Halfnights, will open Friday’s year-end concert. The concert will also showcase four student bands: Prairie Fire Gospel Choir, a roots-indie-rock band; Check 43, a high energy rock band with two female lead vocalists; MakeShift Chemistry, which also features a female vocalist and Francis and The Cool Cats, led by Francis Belanger, a multi-instrumentalist. • The School of Rock concert takes place Friday, June 7 at the ACT in Maple Ridge. Tickets (Adults $16; Students $9.50) are available at the door. The show starts at 7 p.m.

Campbell, Burton & McMullan LLP welcomes associate lawyer

Maple Ridge singer Ria Diy, 15, performs at the Cloverdale Rodeo in May.

Teen scores own T.V. show Ria Diy hosts eveRIAthing on the Reyfort network

R

ia Diy (aka Ria Jade) now has a platform to showcase other talented teens. The Grade 10 student from Thomas Haney secondary has landed her very own local TV show, titled eveRIAthing. The show, which airs on ReyFort Network TV (Channel 701), features teens and young adults who are talented, have a stack of achievements and those who have overcome struggles in their life. For Diy, the TV show brings her a step closer to her dream of being “the next star” and allows her to share her passion for performing. The show’s first episode featured singer Jerrica Santos, who is this year’s Grand Champion for Variety’s Got Talent.

Her show is also in the works of being continuously aired on SHAW’s Multicultural Channel 116. The 15-year-old is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter who just performed at the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair to rave reviews. “If I can inspire every person out there to be healthy and happy through my music and example, then I shall have fulfilled one of my greatest dreams,” says Diy, who is also the reigning youth champion for Ridge Meadows Got Talent. She was also featured on the band One Direction’s website for her sining a cover of their song Moments. Last year, she made it to the wild card auditions for the YTV show The Next Star. Ria Diy is always looking for guests with a unique story to feature on her show. • To learn more, visit everiathing.com.

With two more weekend wins, the Maple Ridge Burrards are on top of the Western Lacrosse Association. The Burrards torched the Burnaby Lakers 12-8 on Friday at Bill Copeland Arena, in a game that saw Brandon Bertoia score four goals. Goaltender Chris Levis made 44 saves in the win. The hapless Lakers have yet to win a game this season. Then on Sunday night at Planet Ice, the Burrards sullied the record of the previously undefeated Victoria Shamrocks by a 13-10 score. That gave them a share of the league lead, as both Maple Ridge and Victoria have gone 4-1 to start the season. GM/head coach Daren Fridge, who has gone from a Mazda to a Maseroti, areed he is delighted with the this overhauled version of the Burrards. “The whole organization is.

Back-to-back with Salmonbellies out to defender Mike Krgovich, who came via an offseason trade with the Shamrocks that also brought goaltender Levis, and to stalwart Creighton Reid. Now with 38 points in five games, Curtis Dickson leads the WLA in scoring, with a 13-point lead on second-place Shamrock Curtis Conway. The end of the Burnaby game saw both benches cleared and lots of push and shoving, but what could have been a out-and-out brawl slowly diffused. “We were on our half of the floor,” noted Fridge. “It was just a whole bunch of jersey punches

At the same time, the Burrards shut down Shamrock Scott Ranger, who has been the WLA scoring leader each of the past two seasons, limiting him to a single assist.
