Visitors turned away from Golden Ears park on Saturday as parking lot full by Ne i l Cor be tt staff reporter

It was the hottest Canada Day on record in Pitt Meadows, capping a long weekend that saw scorched Lower Mainland residents swarming to Alouette Lake and other beaches. However, many latecomers to Golden Ears Provincial Park were turned back at the gate, as the parking lot hit capacity. On Monday, Pitt Meadows set a daily record for July 1, as the temperature hit 31.4 C. That was down from Sunday, when the mercury soared to a withering 33.3 at the Pitt Meadows Regional Airport. That was not quite a daily record, though, as June 30, 1995 registered 33.9 C. Saturday was 27.6 C, making for three hot summer days in a row. Liz Hall, speaking for SSG Holdings Ltd., which operates Golden Ears park, said it is rare but not unusual for the popular park to fill up on a hot weekend. It has 409 camp sites, about 60 per cent of which are rented on a first-comefirst-served basis. See Heat, p11

Libel over comments on video ‘unlikely’ Municipalities are also heavily insured: lawyer by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Maple Ridge can post, or not, a video of its meetings on the municipal website. But to use the possibility a defamation lawsuit as the reason for doing that is “nonsense,” says libel lawyer David F. Sutherland. “There’s a very wide protection for a fair and accurate report,

which a videotape would be, of a council meeting,” under Sec. 4 of the Libel and Slander Act. Sutherland was responding to the District of Maple Ridge’s removing the video of the June 17 committee of the whole meeting from its website after Coun. Corisa Bell questioned the budget. Bell said her comments were general and not directed any one in particular, and if anyone would be offended, it would be council. She’s been told she’ll have to file a Freedom of Information request in an attempt to get her own copy, although she can watch the video at

municipal hall. Mayor Ernie Daykin decided to remove the video from the website after getting legal advice. “During the discussions around the annual financial Bell report and statement of financial information, comments were made that, upon review, may be defamatory,” he said in a state-

ment Tuesday. After getting legal advice, the video was “removed from the district website.” Sutherland, though, said recordings of meetings have “qualified privDaykin ilege,” meaning they’re largely protected from legal action from what was said at the meetings. Sutherland said if publishing

what happens at a council meeting has an ulterior motive, there is a limit to the privilege, but it’s not exceeded by a councillor’s questioning of budgets at a council meeting. “That is really highly unlikely,” he said. “There are so many other checks and balances.” Councillors are in the business of public service, he added. “The idea that somebody’s private reputation should interfere in the dissemination of information about what goes on in the public sphere is really troublesome to me.” See Video, p11

Photographer to keep on shooting K S tor y by Phil Melnychuk

nock on the door, then walk into Len McGregor’s 1960s-style photography studio on 224th Street, and you jump over the years and land somewhere in the 1970s.

Dark-wood panelling lines the walls and lime-green shag carpet softens steps. Even the counter where photos are ordered, decades ago by poring over film negatives, today by scanning the screen on a digital camera, features the shag treatment up the front of the counter, to blend in with the carpet. Old photos that capture family memories and marriages and photography awards, such as “Best Commercial Colour Print, 1971” are posted everywhere. And Len McGregor is still at work. Now 82, having lost his wife and business partner Norma more than a year ago, McGregor still takes portraits and teaches photography, though not at the same pace he’s done for more than the last half a century. “I almost stopped,” he said during a recent visit by a MeTV KVOS documentary crew. The TV crew had stopped into his studio a few weeks ago to interview him for a feature they were doing on the station’s 60th anniversary. McGregor used to do cartoon animation photography of a Beatles cartoons series at the station. But McGregor is carrying on, celebrating his own 65 years in photography. “But I’ve been operating my business since October 1948. I still have the original invoice I sent out. “I started the business just after Bruce’s Country Market opened.” He’s taken lots of photos, starting with industrial and commercial work. His first work photo assignments was when he was working at what was then called B.C. Forest Products Hammond cedar mill. He did portraits and weddings and has no idea how many people he’s captured on film and camera card over the years. “Absolutely none,” he affirms. “My files cover a very large area.” It’s been a fun ride, judging by his comments on the subjects he’s photographed. McGregor regales the KVOS crew with tales of Raymond Burr,

Len McGregor, with portraits he’s taken at his home studio on 224th Street, has been in business for six decades.

George Burns and boxer Rocky Marciano and says their public personas usually matched their private. “Those people were absolutely wonderful people to work with and they were coming in on a day-by-day basis.” Most people usually cooperate with the photographer. “Be friendly. Be truthful. Ask them to do what you want them

to do, and most people will respond. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” He’s also photographed politicians, the most notable being 1960s Conservative prime minister John Diefenbaker, also “a nice guy, wonderful guy.” While he’s comfortable in the world of non-film photography, many photographers forget or don’t know, it’s what’s in the

mind’s eye that’s most important. “Photography still requires a filter, the grey filter, as in the matter between your ears,” he said. “Without that, it’s only a camera taking something in front of it.” In pre-digital world of photography, when it was expensive to buy and shoot and soup film and make the prints, photographers thought carefully before pressing the shutter button. McGregor comes from a time, only a couple decades ago, when you took one correct photo. “You see it happening and you know what’s happening next, so you take the picture.” Many images taken now, by both great and not-so-great photographers, never see the light of day, remaining locked on a card, hidden from all but a three-inch square viewfinder. While his studio is old, McGregor has kept up with the times, using special computer programs for retouching and restoring old photos. In his latter years, he focuses mainly portrait photography, restoration and teaching. He wants to pass on his expertise to up-

and-coming photographers, so they don’t have to struggle like he did. He plans to return to the board of the Professional Photographers of Canada.

“Photography still requires a filter, the grey filter, as in the matter between your ears.” Len McGregor, photographer

Last March, he received the Bar to Service to Photographic Arts award, the first given in Canada, by the Professional Photographers of Canada for his service to the industry. This month, he judged photojournalism at the Skills Canada competition at B.C. Place. “I’m not going to stop,” he says. “God willing, he will stop me.”

Cycling club has prescription for out of shape, sick Maple Ridge residents Best way is to build exercise into their lives by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

Maple Ridge residents are fatter and sicker than the rest of Fraser Health region, with higher than average rates of cancer, heart disease and obesity-related illness. That can all change, if Maple Ridge makes it easy to get around on two-wheeled pedal power, says Jackie Chow, with the group HUB: Your Cycling Connection. “The very best way to get people to exercise is to build exercise into their daily lives – so they don’t even think of it as exercise,” Chow told Maple Ridge council last week. She wants more cycling infrastructure added to Maple Ridge’s transportation, which is currently being rewritten. One suggestion is to pass a complete streets bylaw that would require sidewalks and separated bike paths built into any new arterial road. That would give protection and allow efficient cycling, preventing the discouraging and time-consuming detours on to

side streets. Chow also wants a 30-kilometre-per hour speed limit in the downtown, to encourage cyclists to shop and support local businesses and says cycling shouldn’t be allowed on sidewalks. Maple Ridge is one of the few municipalities in Metro Vancouver that does that, as a means of providing safe travel on busy roads where there is Chow no room for bike lanes. “If you tell them to cycle on sidewalks with pedestrians, so they have to keep slowing down, they won’t even bother, and they’ll continue to drive,” Chow said. “Cycling on sidewalks is generally a symptom of a poorly planned transportation system.” Maple Ridge, though, has a way to go. It’s currently ranked second to last in “bikeability” in Metro Vancouver. The district allots $100,000 yearly in its budget to cycling. She said building bike lanes doesn’t mean pouring money into projects for the small number of people currently on two wheels, but investing to en-

courage others who are thinking of cycling and may be too scared to do so. After Portland, Ore., built bike lanes, six per cent of commuters now cycle to work in that city. “If you see more women cycling, then you know you’re doing something right.” According to numbers from Statistics Canada’s 2011 census, Maple Ridge motorists have the longest commuting times in Metro Vancouver at an average 35 minutes each way. North Vancouver city residents had the shortest commute at 24 minutes according to the National Household Survey. But in most of Metro Vancouver, cyclists made up less than one per cent of commuters, compared to four per cent in Vancouver. TransLink wants to get half of all commuters either walking, cycling or taking the bus or train instead of driving to work. Council recently approved a new separated bike and pedestrian path on the north side of Lougheed Highway between Laity and 216th Street, about a million-dollar project.

Albion sports fields will become more fun under the sun now that Maple Ridge council has OK’d construction of the Albion Sports Complex Water Play Park. The approval came last week after council approved a contract for $300,470 awarded to TGK

Irrigation. Construction will start soon with completion date targeted for September. Parks manager Bruce McLeod said the park will have an artificial stream, water cannons and jets, and a bioswale for treatment of water before it goes into the storm sewer system. Part of the park will be concrete and part will be sand.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views

Not buying it The Canadian Federation of Independent Business notes that municipal spending has grown by 55 per cent in the last decade, even as the population has grown by 12 per cent. Just to clarify, the pace of municipal spending growth is more than three times the growth in population and inflation. Municipalities have increased per-person spending by over 30 per cent, according to the CFIB, which asks: “Do you feel like you are getting 30 per cent more services from your municipal government?” Municipalities claim they are falling behind on one of their core responsibilities – infrastructure – or that they need more revenue to deal with problems not addressed adequately by other levels of government. Meanwhile, transfers from senior levels of government to B.C. municipalities increased by 273 per cent between 2001 and 2010. So where, CFIB wonders, is all this new municipal revenue going? It says municipal employment increased by double the rate of population growth over the past 12 years. Municipal employees make 36 per cent more in wages and benefits than equivalent jobs in the private sector, according to CFIB. Some good points. Municipal wages are considerably higher than those for similar workers in the private sector. Tough bargaining is needed to help rectify the imbalance. A close look at all benefits that go to municipal employees is also needed. Municipal governments need to start exercising some restraint. While taxpayers are paying for it, they’re not buying it. – Black Press

Clark resumes Campbell arrogance VICTORIA – Call it the Beach Blanket Budget. Despite having to campaign once again to win a seat in a byelection, Premier Christy Clark has ordered the legislature to sit without her through most of July to pass the budget that was tabled before B.C. Views Tom Fletcher the election. This rare summer session ensures a couple of things. First, there will be less time for real financial results to contradict the rosy predictions made by Finance Minister Mike de Jong in February. Second, it ensures that there will be minimum public attention paid to the deliberations, as people focus on their summer vacations and put the business of running the province aside again. B.C. Liberal house leader Mike de Jong insists there has been no decision made on whether the legislature will sit again in the fall. The standard schedule, put in place under former premier Gordon Campbell, calls for MLAs to assemble in October and November, to consider legislation, after a spring devoted to the budget and ministry spending. This was a serious reform that went along with four-year scheduled elections. But Campbell soon abandoned this noble approach, with fall sessions dwindling to a few days to deal with

urgent issues or disappearing altogether. I expected Clark to reverse that after she led the party to victory in May and consigned the Campbell era to the history books. Open, accountable government and all that. So why the summer session? I’m inclined to agree with NDP house leader John Horgan, who meets privately with de Jong in his role of government house leader to thrash out schedules. Here’s Horgan’s message to Clark and her government as he emerged from the latest meeting: “You ran on a platform that you claimed you were ready to implement. And what we’re getting instead is, ‘let’s jam ’em in here while the media’s on holidays, while people are at the beach thinking about other things. We’ll pass our bogus budget and then we’ll see you in February’.” Is the budget accurate, or “bogus,” or somewhere in between? They’re always projections, so that can’t be determined until next year. But the proposal to keep the increase in overall spending to less than two per cent, with nearly all the increase going to health and education, is difficult to accept. During his time, Campbell topped the Fraser Institute’s ranking of most fiscally responsible premiers, limiting spending growth to 4.4 per cent. During those same years, average provincial economic growth was only 4.1 per cent, meaning that under the supposedly tight-fisted, tax-cutting Campbell, government continued to grow to more than 20 per cent of gross domestic product. Clark has indicated several times

since her surprise election win that she intends to make government smaller. That’s the difference between her “core review” of government programs and the one conducted by Campbell in the painful first years of his mandate. This is why I mentioned last week that one of the more significant instructions given to Clark’s cabinet ministers was to examine turning the Liquor Distribution Branch into a separate corporation with its own board of directors.

“Clark has indicated several times since her surprise election win that she intends to make government smaller.” That in itself may slightly increase the size of government. But it could be a preliminary step to selling the whole thing off and reducing the government’s role to taxing and regulating booze sales. You can imagine how that would go over with the NDP, with former liquor store union boss George Heyman among the loudest opposition MLAs. This is the kind of change that should be debated in public, not by press release.

The News/letters Expect horses on our roads Editor, The News: Re: Municipal business quite lucrative (Sidewinder, June 28). So True, Sandy. Unfortunately, the clowns who run this  dog and pony show town don’t care   because only 30 per cent of the people vote and they are their friends. The history of this town and the pioneers who created it is why we are in the situation today. Expect horses on our roads. Will Waterbeek Maple Ridge

online comments Find the sore spot • Nicole Read: Re: District MR won’t let go of video (The News, June 28). I think the crux of this issue is that there is something on the video that we’re not supposed to see. The population of Maple Ridge is capable of receiving and assessing information. I think we need to spend some energy focusing on finding the sore spot and figuring out why it’s sore. The suggestion of “defamatory” comments, whether leading to legal action or not, is still a serious allegation and the public deserves access to information. Transparency is the only way to build trust and I’m very uncomfortable when I am denied access to information that shows if/how decisions about my tax dollars are made.

Rotten in Denmark • Claus Andrup: Re: District MR won’t let go of video (The News, June 28). Something is rotten in the State of Denmark. Someone said so. Denmark is displeased. I am not sure why Corisa [Bell] has to meet with Ernie [Daykin]. I thought – innocently perhaps – that they saw one another almost daily. No one is suing anyone, believe me. It is just off to the principal’s office for a dressing down.

Doesn’t actually say • Ian McLeod: Re: Municipal business quite lucrative (Sidewinder, June 28). Maple Ridge has one of the highest average family incomes in B.C., partly (surprise) because we have a large number of households with two well-paid adults working in the public sector. One problem: we’re short of commercial and industrial taxpayers, so residential taxpayers are carrying most of the load. In other words, we need more of those bad, bad corporations to locate in Maple Ridge. Even so, property taxes are roughly in line with those in the rest of the region, and we do have the ability to pay, on average. Do we need to slash salaries for District of Maple Ridge managers? Sandy Macdougall’s post might suggest that we are paying more for staff and getting less in services than other municipalities; but he doesn’t actually say it, does he?

A politician worth voting for Editor, The News: Re: District MR won’t let go of video (The News, June 28). Finally, I feel like my vote was not wasted, an elected politician who asks questions, does not accept the status quo and does what they were elected to do. That is to stand up for what they think is in the best interest of the electorate. It seems that if you don’t join the old boys club and go along with them you will be an outcast. You go girl. John O’Laughlin Maple Ridge

Who’s running show? Editor, The News: Re: District MR won’t let go of video (The News, June 28). I’d like to express my appreciation to Coun. Corisa Bell for her attempts to represent me at Maple Ridge municipal hall.  It’s become clear that the current funding formula for our hospital, whether it involves significant revenue from overpriced parking, wheelchair fees from patients in long-term care, or per diem charges from people admitted to hospice, has become problematic.  We know it takes real leadership for someone to question the received wisdom that these things are as they should be.  I applaud Coun. Bell for her courage to break ranks with her fellow councilors and ask the questions that many citizens in this district would like to see answered. Far too often politicians go from being community activists who are tuned in to the wants and needs of voters to apologists for the impotence of their particular level of government to bring needed change. Thankfully, Coun. Bell is not giving her power away to bureaucrats or other members of council because she is really trying to understand how these things work.  We know that hospital parking fees are banned in other municipalities, so there are clearly precedents which might show the way for our municipality to take a more aggressive stance. 

Councilors who shut down discussion not only dishonour Coun. Bell’s attempt to get answers for herself, they also stop her from representing her constituents by getting answers for them. While some municipalities are exploring democratic initiatives such as participatory budgeting, it worries me that Maple Ridge is doing more and more of its municipal business out of sight and out of mind of the people who live here.   This was made evident to me last year when our municipality decided to charge a significant pool user fee for our Special Olympics aquatics team for the first time ever. When I phoned the mayor’s office to try to understand why things had changed so suddenly and drastically, I was immediately transferred to a high level bureaucrat.  This made me wonder who’s really running the show at our municipal hall.  It also demonstrates why the municipality might not be in a good position to question the parking fees being charged by Fraser Health. I expect that Coun. Bell is setting herself up for some serious push back from the powers that be. I would like her to know that I respect her decision to ask pertinent questions on behalf of the citizens of this community, despite the fact that she faces the possibility of being marginalized and ostracized by her fellow councilors.  A politician who works to increase the transparency and accountability of our government institutions can count on my vote going forward. Elizabeth Rosenau Maple Ridge

Personal toll Editor, The News: Re: District MR won’t let go of video (The News, June 28). During the last municipal election campaign, a newcomer to the always lengthy list of Maple Ridge candidates for council caught the interest of voters. Corisa Bell didn’t have the advantage of incumbency, years on the school board, or membership in a political party or a large-ballot-box-supportive organization like a local church, nor did her last name

place her in the preferential top or bottom position on the ballot. What Coun. Bell did have was a track record of fighting for accountability and fair process around the HST, and a wellarticulated vision of the role of a municipal councillor. Her large purple campaign signs along Abernethy Way didn’t just work for name recognition, she tapped into the core of voter apathy and scorn for politicians: “Tired of politicians who say one thing and do another?”; “Want to know how much our city actually spends on things? Vote for me and find out.” Corisa Bell outlined exactly how she’d behave if elected. She set a high bar and against the odds – there were 27 other names on the ballot – voters rewarded her with a seat and three years to prove herself. Once elected, Coun. Bell could easily have followed the well-worn path of least resistance, and gone along to get along, formed strategic alliances, and played backroom politics. The establishment may argue this is how things get done. Maybe, but that muted background roar is a public fed-up with traditional politicking and unsure how to affect change. Demands for new voting systems and other reforms are, at their heart, a cry for a more issue-focused (rather than person and personality focused), transparent, fair and equitable vision from our elected representatives. Coun. Bell asks questions as they come up, including the difficult ones. She raises constituent issues, including the uncomfortable ones. She acts on behalf of the public in public, and this transparency sets her apart. It has also isolated her at the council table. While many of us dream of quantum leap improvements to the political systems representing us, we realize that small, individual efforts to modernize our democracy add up. There is also a personal toll on politicians who challenge the status quo, and it appears that toll is being exacted on Coun. Bell. Citizens have a duty to support the kind of representation they want, and not just at the ballot box. Katherine Wagner Maple Ridge

Ridge, with the latter tuning up one of its bylaws to allow it to be tackled head on. Council gave third reading last week to changing the Untidy and Unsightly Premises Bylaw so that Japanese knotweed is added to the list of weeds that can be ordered removed from properties. If an order is given, homeowners will either have to remove the plant themselves or the district will it do for them and charge the bill on to their property taxes. Removal though requires professional contractors. The bamboo-like plant is strong enough to bore through concrete and so virulent, it can regrow from as little as 0.2 grams of root remains. “It’s impossible to dig them up,” Jennifer Grenz of the Invasive Species Council of Met-

Japanese knotweed is being added to the list of weeds that can be ordered removed from properties. ro Vancouver said last year. “Their roots can reach [five metres] deep and 20 metres across.” Knotweed has arrived in Maple Ridge and crews last year and this year have been trying to remove it along Lougheed Highway. Coun. Al Hogarth though said blackberry bushes were just as bad and was concerned about pollution from the herbicide used to kill the knotweed. Last year, an infestation of Japanese knot-

weed was discovered splitting concrete in the footings of the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge and infesting a section of the Highway 1 expansion project in Burnaby. Since 2007, the U.K. government spent the equivalent of $110 million to eradicate four hectares of Japanese knotweed from the Olympic Park in London, prior to the construction of Olympic venues, according to the Royal Horticultural Society.

For the record A story in the June 28 issue of The News incorrectly said that the new parks and recreation master plan has been implemented. The new parks and recreation master plan identifies the Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall on Harris Road as a location for the Emerald Pig Theatrical Society, but that is only a long-term goal.

Maple Ridge needs 200 acres for jobs Most available land at end of 256th St. by Phil M elnyc h u k staff reporter

River, on both the east and west sides of the Kwantlen First Nations reserve at 250th Street. Former district councillor Craig Speirs likes the idea. “The last thing we need is more residential. I support council on this one,” he said at Thursday’s open house. Providing residents and council approved, “You could really make something that was attractive and employ people and fit the neighourhood.” Raulot-Lapointe said the hope was that there would be greater demand for the Kanaka Business Park on 256th Street. But the market hasn’t adjusted to the new bridges – the Golden Ears, Pitt River and Port Mann – improving access. Developer Phil Cooper still says north 256th Street has a future. Cooper has a business park at the far end of 256th Street and recently bought five acres in Kanaka Business Park, where he plans to develop 70,000 sq. feet. “I’m going to build an artisan village,” where people can live/work in their businesses. The land is not in the flood plain, he added. By 2041, Maple Ridge must have room for 42,500 jobs, an increase from its current total of 26,330. That will translate into a demand for about another 200 acres, says the strategy. Identification of those areas has to start soon. Currently, only 43 acres are available. For Kathy Klassen more certainty about a current industrial area, Albion Industrial Park, would help. “We want to know what the plan is for down there. Everybody has a sense … that this is more about real estate and development,” she said at an open house.

Klassen runs Pacific Coast Cedar Products on River Road and wants to know if the district will maintain it as an industrial area or if there are other plans. “The problem with Albion and other areas is access.” She said business owners in the area were invited to only one meeting in June as “stakeholders,” to give their views on the strategy.

Industrial Park, the river-front area on the south side of Lougheed Highway, west of 240th Street. Dikes have to be improved, there should be incentives for development, sites have to be decontaminated and road access has to improve. Nothing is expected to happen there within a decade. The strategy also says that a business park should be a major part of developing the east side of 105th Avenue in the Albion flats. Maple Ridge has been encouraged by the Agricultural Land Commission to make an exclusion application. It’s currently negotiating with Smart Centres mall development company on a possible land swap in Albion flats. Taking land out of the Agricultural Land Reserve for industrial use or converting residential land for industrial use, should both be last resorts, says Rollo. The consultants also say that industrial land shouldn’t be converted for use by big-box stores. The report also says that Maple Ridge has enough commercial land and that the downtown should be the priority, even for developing big box stores.

Summer Solstice Pub Night Summer Solstice Pu Summer Solstice Pub Maple Ridge isn’t doing badly in providing jobs close to where people live. According to the Maple Ridge Commercial and Industrial Strategy, 2012 to 2042, 35 per cent of people who live in Maple Ridge also work here, based on 2006 Statistics Canada figures. “Maple Ridge is doing quite well for providing employment for local residents,” said JeanPierre Raulot-Lapointe, with G. P. Rollo and Associates. Only Surrey, with 38 per cent, has a higher ratio of people working in the city in which they live. Pitt Meadows at 17 per cent, had half Maple Ridge’s rate of local employment. While on paper, Maple Ridge has enough land to meet industrial growth, most of that lies at the north end of 256th Street and tenants or businesses are in no rush to locate there. So the district will have to scrape together other areas to meet the demand for another 200 acres, where businesses will find it more attractive to set up. The strategy suggests that a “general employment zone” where light industry that fits well with surrounding suburbs be created. Areas proposed for such zones: 60 acres in the Yennadon area at 232nd Street and 128th Avenue; the former Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure land (38 acres) near the intersection of the east end of the Haney Bypass and Lougheed Highway; two chunks of land along the Fraser

#ShouldaUsedVancouver

by T im Fit z geral d contributor

With an increased awareness on where our food is coming from and families seeking more local options, this year’s 112th edition of Country Fest is serving a healthy dose of education. Country Fest runs July 27 and 28 at the Albion Fairgrounds, located on 23448 – 105th Ave. in Maple Ridge, and this year’s event will highlight a number of “how to” events, including backyard gardening. “People are becoming more conscience of not only what they are eating, but where it comes from,” said Lorraine Bates, general manager for County Fest. “There’s no better way to connect with the region’s agricultural heritage than with a trip to the this year’s event.” Unbelievably Fun is the theme for this year’s event, and Bates said part of that attraction comes from the growth of the festival. Thanks in large part to a federal grant from the Canadian Heritage department and a host of local sponsors, Bates said their is no admission fee for the event. She said this is the sixth year Country Fest has gone without collecting gate revenue and the concept has paid off. She said groups that usually charge a fee of up to $500 to come and give their demonstrations are now lining up to get on board.

Country Fest in Maple Ridge will again feature 4-H competitions. Besides the backyard gardening demonstrations, Bates said their will be both a mobile dairy and poultry exhibits on tap. A strong 4-H presence will also get a boost as Country Fest will play host to a provincial competition over the weekend. Bates estimates more than 14,000 people take in the weekend event. The event is also a major draw for local musicians and dancers. The event will see groups like ’70s Vancouver band Stonebolt, as well as March Hare, a CCR and Bob Seger tribute band also take the stage. As well, West Coast Amuse-

Mayor offers third-party mediation Video from front

It’s not the first time cars have been turned away at Golden Ears park.

“Anybody who knows anything about the field … will know there’s no viable prospect of liability, none, absent there being some vicious, ulterior purpose.” In addition, municipalities are heavily insured. But the district doesn’t have to post the video, Sutherland said. It could just not post it in order to protect staff from comments that may be made during a meeting, but which could hurt morale, or undermine the credibility of staff, or hurt the municipality.

THE NEWS/files

‘Back to more pleasant climate’ “We have to turn people away from the campsite – if they don’t get up there a day or two early, they’re not going to get in,” she said. There are two big parking lots for the Alouette day-use area. They can accommodate 900 cars, but once they are full, as they were on Saturday, people are turned away. Hall said two similarly busy weekends at the park will be the B.C. Day long weekend on Aug. 2-4 and the Labour Day end-ofsummer long weekend on Aug. 31 to Sept. 2.

“The key point is, it’s not the district against Coun. Bell.”

Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones explained desert air from the southwestern U.S. settled over B.C., bringing with it desert temperatures. “This week we’re back to our more pleasant climate – thankfully,” said Jones. The summertime weather is staying, but the forecast is for mid-20s temperatures through the week, which is the norm for this time of year. It will warm up as the weekend approaches, but not to the extremes seen on the long weekend. The high for Saturday is forecast to be 26 C.

Heat from front

Mayor Ernie Daykin “There’s a far better reason and I bet it’s the real reason,” Sutherland added. “To say it’s because it’s libelous is not the appropriate excuse because

there is such a wide and wonderful protection.” Daykin said Tuesday, “It’s unequivocally not about Coun. Bell or the staff person. It’s about the District of Maple Ridge and of having that posted to the website that puts the District of Maple Ridge in the potential of liability. “The key point is, it’s not the district against Coun. Bell.” He didn’t want to say that a lawsuit could come from a staff member, but said “you could assume that.” But he didn’t know if that would happen or not. “We’re trying to be responsible.” Bell has been at odds with council after questioning the budget process, the decision to extend borrowing authority for $6 million for a new Fire Hall No. 4, a project that’s long been planned, as well as development decisions and pay parking at Ridge

Meadows Hospital. Meanwhile, Daykin won’t be suspending chief administrative officer Jim Rule pending an investigation of a complaint filed by Bell following a June 10 workshop meeting. Bell had asked that Rule be suspended while the complaint was being resolved. Daykin said after reviewing the details, “there are no grounds for a suspension. “Mr. Rule is the consummate professional whose 30 years of experience are a valuable asset for our community

and our council,” Daykin added. Rule has said he had private conversations about district matters with councillors, but doesn’t want to discuss those conversations. “The mayor is aware of the issue and I have every confidence he will deal it appropriately,” Rule said previously. Daykin said Bell isn’t considered an employee of the district. He offered to begin a third-party mediation process and is awaiting her response and wants the issue resolved as soon as possible.

Measles cases show up in Metro Are immunizations up to date? by J eff Nagel Black Press

Three Metro Vancouver residents have contracted measles and health officials are urging the public to ensure their immunizations are up to date to help prevent further spread of the virus. The three cases to date are all on the North Shore or Bowen Island, but one of those patients went cross-border shopping in Bellingham last Saturday, potentially exposing people there to infection. Vancouver Coastal Health officials are also tracing the three patients’ contacts on this side of the border to alert others who are at risk, but haven’t identified specific places in the Lower Mainland where the public was exposed. “We’re not worried yet about a general community-level transmission,” said medical health officer Dr. Réka Gustasfon. She called the cases

unusual in that they’re the first locally acquired measles cases here since a 2010 outbreak. Advice and vaccinations are being offered to anyone who may have been in contact with those infected, but Gustafson said anyone who is unsure about their measles immunization can get the vaccine for free from doctors and clinics. Whatcom County’s Health Department issued its own alert Thursday, warning that someone ill with measles could have transmitted the virus to other shoppers on June 22 at the Bellingham Costco between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and also at Bellis Fair Mall between noon and 4 p.m. Gustafson confirmed that exposure came from one of the Metro patients who visited Bellingham. “We informed individuals rather than the general public,” she said of exposures in B.C. “We feel we’ve been able to identify the highest risk contacts.” Metro Vancouver rarely sees more than a single case of measles at

a time, Gustafson said, because of the relatively high population immunity here. But she noted there are neighbourhoods across the region where vaccination levels are lower and there’s a much higher risk of broader transmission within those pockets. Measles are highly contagious starting one to two days before symptoms show up and continuing until four days after the classic measles rash begins. The droplets from coughs and sneezes can remain airborne in a room for one to two hours after the infectious person has left, according to Whatcom officials. It can take seven to 21 days for someone to come down with measles after they’ve been exposed. “This means that patrons of Costco or Bellis Fair Mall could start to have symptoms between June 29 and July 13,” said the Whatcom alert. There haven’t been any confirmed cases in Washington State, but an outbreak is ongoing in New York State.

Two doses of vaccine are required for lifelong measles immunity, and Gustafson said many people, particularly those 43 or younger, have had only one dose. The disease is most serious for infants, who die at a rate of one for every 3,000 infections in developed countries. It’s much worse in the third world, which accounts for most of the 150,000 annual measles deaths worldwide. The risk of fatalities as well as significant complications like pneumonia and brain inflammation is why health leaders encourage vaccination. “If you have large outbreaks – thousands and thousands of cases – there will be deaths from measles,” Gustafson said. Anyone who develops measles symptoms –  starting with a fever, runny nose, cough and red, watery eyes –  is urged to stay home and not expose others. The rash develops after several days, first on the face and then spreading down to most of the body. It can last a week or more.

My dad started learning about herbs at 6 years old from his grandmother in Austria, who had the knowledge passed on to her. I started learning about herbs when I was 15, 34 years ago. I was greatly encouraged as I started seeing letters from people who were being helped by our formulas. They would say they are like new again!! This made all the hard work worthwhile and has contributed to me loving what I do. One of the highlights lately is that all of our products have received government approval with NPN’s (Natural Product Numbers) which guarantees the customer a safe, efficient and quality product.

Years of service

I have worked for Strauss 6 years and have seen the difference we have made in people’s lives. I talk with our customers everyday and read the letters we receive telling us thank you for saving our lives and how much better their quality of life has become from using the Strauss products. The Strauss Herb Company has 17 products that have NPN numbers ( natural health product numbers ) that are approved by Health Canada that we use to treat various problems like heart disease. The Strauss family is proud to be a good corporate citizen of Kamloops and thank you to all of our loyal customers.

My name is Brad Janishewski and I am a professional ofessional race car driver. ailure and had In December of 2010 I had a major heart failure only 14% of my heart capacity and was given ven a short time to live. I was introduced to Strauss heart art drops and now I’m back to a normal heart. Thanks to Strauss I’m back to doing what I love to do.

See you at the races.

Years of service

My name is Troy Lindaas and I have been working for Strauss for 12 years. For the past 11 years I have enjoyed my time as the shipper. It is a good feeling to work at a company with natural products that has helped so many people. Strauss has provided us a great lunch program and is a family friendly company that gives us flexibility and paid days off throughout the year to be able to spend more time with our families.

Our Fair Lady takes centre stage as Theatre in the Country delivers a home-cooked dinner and a play by T i m Fitzg e r ald contributor

I

t took Theatre in the Country two years to build its space inside the old school gym at Whonnock elementary. But it only takes patrons a few seconds to fall in love with the atmosphere. Reg Park, artistic director for Theatre in the Country, says it’s current production of Our Fair Lady is proof the hard work getting the theatre company up and running was worth the effort. Because of the size of the stage, the theatre seats an intimite 65 for its unique sit-down dinner and production of one of Broadway’s most popular musicals. With a cast of 18, Parks uses every inch of the theatre to his advantage, bringing the play from the stage to the audience. “It makes it more interesting and inclusive for the crowd,” said Parks, who is also directing the play. “It’s such a great musical and we’ve had a fantastic response from the audiences.” He sys Theatre in the Country is the only production he knows of in B.C, that combines live theatre with a full sit-down homecooked meal. As good as the food is, he’s even more impressed with his cast. More than half are local, and playing the lead of Eliza Doolittle is Jessica Tabak, one of his former students at Maple Ridge Christian School. “We had 22 people try out for the lead role, and I told Jessica the competition was going to be stiff, and that I didn’t want to break her heart,” reflects Park. “So I auditioned with a team, because I didn’t want any biases to come into this. And when it was over, Jessica was the unanimous choice.I’m pretty proud of her and she’s doing quite fabulously at it.” Parks is also integrating the latest technology to help the production. Much of the backdrops in the play rely on digital projections. It’s a trend being utilized by more and more theatre companies, explains Park.

Maple Ridge’s Jessica Tabal of Theatre in Country portrays Eliza Doolittle in the classic My Fair Lady running until July 20. Tabak beat out 22 other actors to land the coveted role. He said his background in video production has helped make the transition smoother and he believes the melding of the two mediums will be more common in the future. “What it can do is speed up the transitions between scenes, where set changes can sometimes slow things down. It can also add a more cinematic feel.” Park’s original production for Theatre in the Country was Charley’s Aunt, which also

proved wildly successful. Once completed, they took their production to the Greater Vancouver Regional Theatre Festival, where it won a number of awards. Park says an improve and summer BBQ is planned for Aug. 9-10, then the group will start rehearsing for its next production, Slueth, which opens Oct. 31. My Fair Lady runs until July 20. Shows are every Friday and Saturday evening, with

doors opening at 6:30 p.m., dinner served at 7 p.m. and show starting at 8 p.m. There is also a Saturday matinee, with doors opening a 12:30 p.m., lunch at 1 p.m. and the show starting at 2 p.m. Sunday features a theatre-only production, with doors opening at 3:30 p.m. and the show starting at 4 p.m. • For more information and tickets, go online to theatreinthecountry.com.

Hovey looks to make transition to life on the stage in Toronto Former Westview secondary student appears in Theatre Under the Stars by T im Fitzg e r ald contributor

F

or Dustin Hovey, the transition from a budding young adult to full-time working actor has arrived. For the former Westview secondary student, it’s not a moment too soon. As the 22-year-old actor takes a break from rehearsing from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, he admits a life on the stage is something he’s

always wanted since he entered high school. “I’m starting out my life, becoming a grown-up,” he laughs, as he explains his decision to head to Toronto in the fall to continue working on his career. But until then, he’ll be on stage as part of the male ensemble cast of the Theatre Under The Star’s production of the Tony-award winning musical first produced by Frank Loesser. The play opens July 9 at the Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park and runs through until the end of August. In July, the show plays on odd days. In August, the schedule flips to even days. The story centres around

young, ambitious J. Pierrepont Finch, who leans on the book How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, to climb from window washer to chairman of the board of the World Wide Wicket Company. Hovey said performing at the historic theatre in Vancouver only adds to his enjoyment of performing in front of a live audience. “It’s an adrenaline rush for sure, it really keeps you going. It can be stressful, but that’s part of live performances. It goes hand-inhand with the excitement,” said Hovey, whose in his second season with Theatre Under the Stars. “You can really feed off the

Dustin Hovey energy from the crowd.” While the young actor confesses he always comes down with a case of the butterflies before the start

of a performance, they are quickly swept away once the curtain goes up. “After a good performance, I don’t even realize I was on stage until I come off. You get so focused and in the moment, it’s just like, wow, it’s over.” Hovey’s past credits include Rent, Just So and The Boy Friend. He’s hoping his venture to Toronto will only lead to bigger and better things. But he realizes that while excited, it’s also daunting. He said he realizes a career on the stage or on the screen is not easily accomplished. There are thousands of aspiring actors just waiting for their break. He

said thankfully, he’s had, and continues to receive, nothing but support from his family. “My parents supported me no matter what I was involved with, whether it was sports, art, or theatre. They’ve been one hundred per cent behind me. It makes a world of difference.” Hovey also looks back at his time in high school and the encouragement and direction he received from his theatre arts teach, Rhondalee Brema, who he said was able to foster his love of the stage. “She really inspired me to be better and to continue to peruse a career in theatre.”

Second novel for Maple Ridge author hit stores on Canada Day contributor

Former Maple Ridge resident Dani Collins knows a little bit about perseverance. The author wrote and submitted for 25 years before selling to her dream publisher last year. Collins finds herself know writing for Harlequin, founded in 1949 in Winnipeg, and known for love stories, ranging from sweet to passionate, homespun to glitzy. “Why Harlequin? Let’s start with the fact they’re still alive in today’s postapocalyptic publishing

landscape. Plus, their books are as fun to write as they are to read,” says Collins, who now lives in Christina Lake. The classic beach read is much like the beach: an escape from our day to day lives. Collins writes for one of Harlequin’s most escapist lines, Presents, known for its tycoon heroes, exotic settings, and drama-fraught journeys to happily ever after. “My first book with them actually released in January, but only in the U.K. and Australia,” Collins explains. “I have an indie title and a digital title with Champagne Books, but neither of those books came out in stores. This is my print debut in my own country. I was so excit-

actors need to know going into the business: it’ll be next to impossible to succeed without their parents’ support, especially when it comes to legal contracts and getting to auditions, said Tarlington. “They need a parent who’ll drive them everywhere.”

oys wearing Canadian flags for capes played street hockey near the finish line; a little girl watched them, sporting a pair of Maple Leafs worn like Mickey Mouse ears; a local band on stage filled the air with folksy fiddle music; and friends and family members waited with camera phones ready for hundreds of runners doing the annual Canada Day Athletes in Kind 8K race. The first runner across the finish line was Austin Rebalkin, of Maple Ridge, in a time of 31:07. The 16-year-old, who attends Samuel Robertson Technical, had taken second at the BMO Okanagan Marathon last October for those 19 and under, but the AIK 8K was his first victory. “This is the first time I’ve ever won a race – it feels incredible,” he said. Right behind him was Scott Shupe, also a local runner, who found Monday morning’s extreme heat bogged down the runners. It wasn’t 31.4 C yet, as it would be later in the day, but the sun was already beating down Monday at 9 a.m. “It was brutal,” he said. Over the first half of the race the runners were in shade and there was a breeze. But the only reprieve in the final sweat-soaked kilometers was a spray hose set up by Pitt Meadows firefighters. Shupe, a veteran marathoner, was

He finished respectably in the middle of the pack in the men’s 40-49 class. the fastest in his 40-49 class at 31:14. He started in the middle of the pack, and as the race went on he regularly “picked off ” those ahead of him, until he was running with the lead. He was leading the entire pack at about the seven klick mark.

“I gotta hold on here, man,” he told himself, but soon he could hear Rebalkin’s breathing. They had a battle, that the teen won in the final leg. Shupe’s son Marshall, who is in Grade 6 at Albion Elementary, won

the morning’s 2k run for kids. The fastest woman was Soraiya Abdulla, who ran in the female 20-29 class, in a time of 32:54. Also noteworthy was Bruce Johnson being the fastest of the five entrants in the men 70-plus class, in a time of 47:39, and Lenore Montgomery won the women’s 70-plus class, over two other entrants, in a time of 50:19. Reigning champion Nathan Wadhwani, who finished the 8k in a time of 27:58 last year, has an upcoming competition with the national track and field team, and didn’t want to risk injury in a run this week. He will travel to Donetsk, Ukraine to run the 3,000m race in the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) World Youth Championships July 10-14. He was at the race, to hand over the mantle. The annual AIK 8K race combined with a ball hockey tournament to give a sporty feel to the Canada Day Celebrations, which were held at the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre on Sunday. About 300 people took part in the run, and organizer Lorie Muller set a goal of $8,500 for the charity run. The money will be used for practical support for the parents of children undergoing cancer treatment at Children’s Hospital. Mullet explained that the funds are overseen by the B.C. Childhood Cancer Parents Association, made up of parents who have all had a child who needed cancer treatment.

Cassy Isagawa will be bringing the Flumerfelt Cup accolades across the border as the B.C. 2013 Women’s Amateur champion.

Isagawa, originally from Hawaii but now a resident of Eugene while attending the University of Oregon, matched her third-round course record six-under-par 68 in her final round to post a miraculous 16-under-par 280 total (70-74-68-68).

Boys in the Dominican Republic hone their hitting skills with stickball, youngsters in the U.K. play soccer in the streets, and kids in Canada will play hockey on everything from a frozen pond, to a tennis court to a cul de sac. So a ball hockey tournament was considered a great fit for the Canada Day celebrations in Pitt Meadows. “This is great, I just wish there were more teams,” said Chase Pedersen. “They’ve got to get the word out.” His team, the Puck Buddies, were the only one in their Major age class, so they were bumped up to the older Open class. They suffered an 8-7 loss in their first game. Goaltender Curtis Rodgerson was sweating like Roberto Luongo after overtime. He of course wanted full protection from that little orange ball. It closely replicates a puck for both ease of stickhandling and pain inflicted on shot blockers. So, Pedersen busted out full hockey gear, despite the temperatures which were nudging up into the 30 C range even in the morning.

On the little playing surface a shooter could score from his own end of the “rink,” so he had a lot of shots to take his focus off the sweltering heat. Thomas Hong was undaunted by the prospect of playing three half-hour games on one of the hottest days of the year. “It’s a fun thing, so you don’t have to go that hard.” Their team were the default winners of the Major Division, and as such will have their names engraved on a trophy that will be on display at event sponsor Bill’s Skate Shop. There will also be cups for the other divisional champions: Fourth Line Grinders (Open), Pickles (Minor) and Jets (Pee Wee). Hanna Vorlicek organized the event, which drew 12 teams in its first year being held on Canada Day. It was also the first year that it was set up as a three-on-three event. She said it was a great compliment for the Athletes in Kind run, and the other Canada Day entertainment and ceremonies in Pitt Meadows, and the hockey players all agreed it is a great idea. “Everybody was happy, and everyone was totally into coming back next year.”

Quarter century on Whonnock Lake Looki ng Bac k by Fred Braches

O

n July 16, 1988, Olive Leaf cut a red ribbon to officially open Whonnock Lake Centre in the presence of politicians and supporters and a crowd of cheering Whonnockians who had given their time, skills, and money to reach this goal. It all began in 1980 with an issue about water. A test well drilled at 272nd Avenue had produced 100 gallons of water a minute, and the residents wanted the municipality to make that resource accessible for the community. A ratepayers meeting was called, and those present formed the Whonnock Society, with the purpose “to deal expressly with the needs and wishes of concerned individuals.” Its first president was the late Allan Springman. Whonnock did get its communal well, much needed road repairs, and, most important, gained the ear of mayor and council and co-operation. Community life flourished. The active arms of the Whonnock Society were a number of volunteer committees. The social committee arranged community events such

as the Easter Egg Hunt, Whonnock Days, and Christmas-tree burning, under the watchful eyes of the firemen of Fire Hall No. 2. All these events took place in Whonnock Lake Park, but many felt that a community centre would enable an even wider variety of activities. A hall committee quietly pursued that dream. Incorporation was an essential step, and with it, because the registrar of companies rejected the name Whonnock Society, came the name change to Whonnock Community Association.  At a meeting in January 1983, council assigned a site at Whonnock Lake Park for the hall building and came to an agreement with the Whonnock Community Association that after the completion of the building ownership would be transferred to the municipality and leased back to the association for the nominal fee of one dollar per year. It was now up to the Whonnock Community Association to produce the money to build the hall. Phil Johnson started fundraising by organizing a raffle of a Thunderbird. The car was hauled to several shopping malls

Thank You Maple Ridge for Riding Big! Together, we raised $21,359!

for display and small number of dedicated volunteers sold tickets. The net profit for the hall was $11,000. Other local fundraisers followed. The results were impressive, but not enough to even think of starting the project. Four years did pass until the groundbreaking ceremony.  The first major contribution came in 1986 from the provincial government through Austin Pelton, minister of the environment in Victoria. It was also Whonnock’s good fortune that Gerry St. Germain, MP for

Mission-Port Moody and Minister of Transport, believed in the need of a community hall for Whonnock. The federal government grant he arranged was for labour. Mostly inexperienced and unemployed men worked under the skillful direction of Bud Popadiuk, building superintendent, to complete the building. And so it came to be that on that sunny day in July 1988, Phil Johnson, then president of the Whonnock Community Association, could welcome a couple of hundred people to the official

opening of Whonnock Lake Centre. Last week, Johnson ended his 25 years of continuous service on the operations committee of the centre.

On July 1, the Whonnock Community Association ended its lease and turned over the management of Whonnock Lake Centre to the District of Maple Ridge

This was a hard decision to make. But the handful of volunteers, including Johnson, who for so many years have carried the responsibility for running what is in fact a commercial operation, are tired. Instead, the Whonnock Community Association wants to concentrate more on the community and on the fun events that have been the trademark of Whonnock. Fortunately, the new agreement with the district allows the association continuing use of the centre for its meetings and special events. Fred Braches is a local historian who lives in Whonnock.
