CLOSER THAN YOU THINK SALE !

Hill House has reluctant sellers TROY LANDREVILLE editorial@mrtimes.com

If and when Mike and Carolyn Holt sell “Hill House,” it will be like losing a member of their family. The Maple Ridge couple is putting the heritage home on the selling block. For Mike and Carolyn, it’s a tough decision, but a necessary one. “I cried when we bought the house...and I cried when we were signing the papers to sell it,” Carolyn said, of the home located on 240th Street, just a step or two north of Lougheed Highway. “I really don’t want to, but we need to slow down, because both of our bodies are dead now. We can’t do the upkeep anymore.” When the house eventually changes owners, the Holts will continue to hold a vested interest in it, and the property it sits on. “We spent a lot of energy and a lot of time making sure it was put back to as close to the original as we could,” Mike said. “I’m afraid of someone painting the woodwork,” Carolyn said. “I wish one of our children was in a position to take it over.” The Holts are just the fourth family to ever live in “Hill House” in its colourful 98-year history, and stepping through the home’s front doors is like going back a century in time.

Antique furniture can be found in almost every room. “We like old furniture,” Mike said. “We’ve always had antiques in our lives.” The four-storey Edwardian-style house was built in 1912 for Hendrick Hill with money he had earned dur-

ing the Klondike Gold Rush. Hill was Finnish and he turned to a fellow Finn, Victor Rossi, a builder from Webster’s Corners, to construct the house. The 4,000-square foot house has maintained many of its original design features such as hardwood floors and paneling, bay windows, stained glass, and built-in glass fronted cabinets. Members of the Hill family inhabited the building until 1972. In its original location, the home was part

of a working farm which included a dairy herd, chickens, and pigs. From 1952 to 1956, a portion of the home was converted into a restaurant. It was the first restaurant with a liquor license on the north side of the Fraser River. Later, the Hill family sold the home to Dr. Arthur Jones, whose family lived in it for 23 years. In the mid-1990s, the “Hill House” property was sold to developers and the home stood vacant for a number of years. In 1999, the house was moved from its original location to a site on 240th Street, on the southwest corner of the original property. “We’d been watching [the home] for 20 years,” Mike recalled. “We always wanted to pick it up. One day we came by and it was boarded up, sitting up on the hill. So we went through the process of getting hold of the developer... and chased him down for a couple of years.” The Holts were on a list of 12 potential buyers, and when the couple took a tour inside the boarded up house, they did so in the dark, with flashlights.

Upfront IN BRIEF Suspect leaves ID at the scene of break-&-enter

Two 19-year-old Burnaby men were arrested Wednesday night in connection with a break-and-enter in Maple Ridge. Just after 12:40 p.m. on Wednesday, Ridge Meadows RCMP responded to a call about three suspicious males at a home in the 21100 block of 123rd Avenue in Maple Ridge. According to RCMP Insp. Derren Lench, a neighbour saw the three men near the home, and then, a short time later, he saw them inside the residence. The three had apparently gained entry in the home by breaking a rear patio door window. After the police were called, a police service dog helped the Ridge Meadows RCMP locate and arrest two of the three suspects in the basement of the home. A 19-year-old Burnaby man and an 18- year-old Port Moody man were taken from the scene while the third suspect fled. Unfortunately, that suspect left his identification behind and at 9 p.m., the Burnaby RCMP knocked on his door and arrested the second 19-year-old Burnaby man. “The successful arrests on this file would not have been as likely, or this early, if our citizen didn’t call us,” said Lench said in a prepared release. “When it comes to combating crime, the police need the help, and cooperation of our citizens.” The police are recommending break-and-enter charges against the trio, with their first appearance in Port Coquitlam provincial court Thursday.

Pelton plan forwarded to ALC AMY STEELE asteele@mrtimes.com

I

t will now be up to the agricultural land commission to decide whether 60 hectares of farmland should be paved over to make way for a light industrial park. Maple Ridge council has voted to forward a controversial application by the Pelton family. Councillors Cheryl Ashlie, Judy Dueck, Al Hogarth, Mike Morden and Mayor Ernie Daykin voted in favour and Councillors Linda King and Craig Speirs voted against forwarding it to the ALC. The five council members who voted to forward the plan also rejected a resolution by Speirs to hold a public information meeting on the plan before making a decision about whether or not to send it to the ALC. Councillor Cheryl Ashlie asked if council could request that the ALC hold a public information meeting because she said “it just might appear cleaner” and Dueck agreed with the suggestion, adding the ALC is a “neutral venue.” However, Councillor Linda King disagreed. “I think it’s our work. I think it’s our land, our citizens,” she said. The land the Pelton family wants to develop is bounded by 203 Street and 132 Avenue. The Pelton family is proposing 52.2 hectares of land would go towards an industrial park, 5.5 hectares would go towards roads, 0.8 hectare would be for a stormwater pond and open space and one hectares for agricultural specialty sales. The family is also proposing 20 hectares would remain in the ALR but would be nonfarm use, including 3.3 hectares for a community park, 2.6 hectares for experimental or incubator farms, two hectares for community gardens, 1.2 hectares for an agri-product terminal and 0.4 hectares for horse trailer parking. A former Port Coquitlam council member appeared as

a delegation before council prior to the vote and asked Daykin to abstain from voting on the issue, citing his “50year-old friendship” with the Pelton family and the fact that Norm Pelton donated $3,500 to his election campaign, which was the largest donation he received. Councillors Dueck, Hogarth and Morden also received campaign contributions from the Pelton family. Dueck and Hogarth received $250 and Morden received $400. Daykin said after he voted that he makes his decisions “based on what is best for Maple Ridge.” “You know one of the problems I have at times is the fact that I’ve lived here for 58 years. I look around this room and I have done business and have a relationship at some level with virtually everybody in this room and you know what? That’s a good thing because I value the community and what you folks offer this community,” he said. Daykin said even with council choosing to forward the application “it’s a huge assumption the ALC will remove this.” “I think that this is the first ALC exclusion application that’s come before council in my three terms where the folks have actually gone out and done some work, invested some money and not just come before council and said we want this land excluded and we have no idea what it will be,” he said. Daykin said he’s always been on the record that he doesn’t support excluding ALR land for residential but that he might agree if it was for commercial or industrial purposes. Councillor Mike Morden said the property hasn’t been farmed for 40 years. “The argument that we need this for our food sustainability or we need the farming for our particular community is outweighed by the other benefits that our community needs,”

he said. Morden pointed out that under Metro Vancouver’s draft plan Maple Ridge is expected to double local employment by 2041. He said the property is close to the Golden Ears Bridge and the east west transportation corridor. He said the industrial park would help create jobs to prevent 65 per

the money back,” he said. Speirs said he found it “embarrassing” council was forwarding the application to the ALC. “The only question of this council is this farmland viable and is this property farmland and the answer is obviously yes,” he said. “To me we’d just be throwing away something

Speirs said he’s also upset the family has been paying farm taxes for decades and it could be converted to industrial. “They’ve been paying farm tax for almost 40 years and if it’s just a holding property then that’s money taken under false pretenses. I want

that will prove to be incredibly valuable in the future.” Councillor Linda King read a written statement. “The removal of any of these lands from the agricultural land reserve would be precedent and a huge loss for agriculture in Maple Ridge. Their retention would signal a commitment to agriculture and respect for our Official Community Plan and our urban boundary. There is every evidence that these lands can be productive,” she said. “The goal of the agricultural land reserve to preserve farmable food producing lands for the future is more and more in need of our support.” King said with productive soil disappear ing or being threatened around the world due to desertification, drought, dams being built, road building, housing construction and commercial and industrial development protection of farmland is increas-

ingly important. “There’s no guarantee that any of what is proposed would occur,” she said of the Pelton proposal. Councillor Judy Dueck said the application isn’t about the Pelton family against the community or business against food. “Why don’t we try and find some out of the box way of coming to some great solutions for everything that we need in our community? I think it can be achieved,” she said. “I see some really positive things here for the community as a whole...Let’s look at the viability of the land. Let’s look at the alternatives out there.” She said there is a need for more employment so people don’t have to commute and she said there’s not enough industrial land for a truly sustainable community in the future. Ashlie wanted to know what assurance council could have that if the exclusion application was approved there would have to be some positive benefit to agriculture in Maple Ridge as part of the approval. “I don’t know that I have the expertise or the right to say to a working farmer who is as dedicated to this community as the Pelton family is that no I won’t allow this to go forward for a conversation with the professionals that should know,” said Ashlie. Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows NDP MLA Michael Sather described council’s decision as “shameful.” “There’s no reason at all it should be forwarded to the ALC. It’s pure urban sprawl, anti-agriculture, anti-environment proposal. It’s just unfortunate to say the least that they’re forwarding it,” he said. “Clearly those who forwarded it are in favour of seeing it come out of the ALR and they’re trying to say this is just an innocent thing we’re doing passing it on to the ALC. That’s not the case. They’re foursquare behind it.”

Inquest called into death of man passed out in jail

An inquest will be held into a man who died after being in Ridge Meadows RCMP custody in October 2008. Fifty-four-year-old Ian Alexander Young was found unresponsive while in a Maple Ridge jail cell early in the morning on October 18. He died after undergoing surgery

at Royal Columbian Hospital. The man was taken into custody on October 17 after BC Ambulance Service received a call around 10 p.m. about a man found lying on the side of the road in an intoxicated state. The RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team’s (IHIT ) spokesperson Cpl.

Dale Carr said BC Ambulance employees did an assessment and determined he didn’t need to be taken to the hospital. Carr said the man was “intoxicated to the point where he couldn’t care for himself” so he was arrested and taken into RCMP cells. Several hours later, at 6:30 a.m. he was

found to be unresponsive but still breathing. BC Ambulance Service was called and took him to Ridge Meadows Hospital. From there he was transported to Royal Columbian Hospital. Carr said the surgery was for a pre-existing injury that occurred prior to being arrested by police.

Young’s inquest is scheduled for August 10 to 13 in Burnaby. A jury will hear evidence from subpoenaed witnesses in order to determine the facts surrounding his death. The jury can make recommendations on how to prevent similar deaths in the future but can’t assign blame.

Murder victim’s estate earns victory in court KEITH FRASER CanWest News Service

T

he estate of a Maple Ridge woman whose estranged husband killed her and then burned down her home has been awarded $160,000 in damages due to an insurance broker’s negligence. In November 2007 while Karen Beck, 52, (pictured) was at the home cleaning it in preparation for sale, her husband, Richard Beck, 54, strangled her, set the house on fire and hanged himself. At t h e t i m e Be c k w a s attempting to extricate herself from an abusive relationship with her husband. The home was insured with both wife and husband named as insureds but the insurance policy excluded coverage for intentional acts by an insured and the estate of Karen Beck was initially denied insurance coverage for the arson attack on the home. A claim to the insurer, Canadian Northern Shield, was eventually settled for about 50 per cent of the value of the home — about $185,000. The estate sued the broker in a bid to recover the remaining $160,000 value of

the home, claiming the broker was negligent in advice given to the murder victim, who had moved out of the home prior to the homicide. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Susan Griffin found that the

broker’s advice resulted in Beck retaining a policy that caused her to have a gap in her coverage, resulting in the uninsured loss. She found the broker was negligent and awarded the estate the $160,000. “Had the defendant fulfilled its duty of care, Mrs. Beck would likely have replaced her homeowner’s policy with a rental dwelling policy that did not exclude coverage for intentional acts

of tenants,” the judge concluded. “The defendant’s breach of its duty of care caused Mrs. Beck’s estate to suffer an uninsured loss as a result of the intentional act exclusion

on her homeowner’s policy.” A release signed by the plaintiff to Northern Shield did not provide a defence to the insurance broker, added the judge. In addition to the award, the judge said the estate was also entitled to pre-judgment interest and “would also normally” be entitled to legal costs but if the two sides could not reach an agreement, another hearing could be scheduled.

Pitt village is still looking for pub, chapel operators MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

T

he developer of Osprey Village in Pitt Meadows is not in the business of running chapels — but they really want to build one on a site in Pitt Meadows put aside for that purpose. Chris Barbati, operating partner with Mosaic Homes was at Pitt Meadows’ council in committee meeting on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the next phase of Osprey Village of 12 commercial units and 24 residential units with revised amenity contributions — $20,000 for the project’s public art budget, the transfer of 15 parking stalls to the City of Pitt Meadows and a two-year artist-in-residence and co-op gallery in one of the proposed commercial units — as well as an extension of the chapel completion date. “We can’t commit to building the chapel if we don’t know there’s an operator,” Barbati said. “We will not proceed with this development if we have to build the chapel.” Council in committee voted to forward the proposal to regular council and then

for a public hearing, including an estimate that design and approval of the chapel would happen in December, 2011. Barbati said the company will not build a chapel and then have it sit empty. The chapel has to be “commercially viable” before Mosaic will look at building it — they are currently looking for someone who would like to run it. Councillor Tracy Miyashita questioned why a chapel should be built and suggested some other structure might also suit the site, for example, a gazebo. “We would like to (build a chapel) for fun because it would be an interesting architectural (project),” Barbati said. But, he added, if Mosaic Homes can’t find an operator for the chapel, they’re stuck with the land. Mosaic is currently paying municipal property taxes on the property as if there were a building on it. A public hearing was held on the entire project and based on comments made by the public, it was sent back to city staff who worked with the developer to come up with new conditions.

The proposed development will have 12 commercial units with 24 units of residential above it along Barnston View Road. Council had given direction to reduce the impact of the proposed development on neighbouring properties. A pub and/or restaurant are also planned for Osprey Village. Barbati said the company still has not found anyone to open a restaurant on the site and Barbati said he hopes when the village becomes more successful, it will attract the right restaurant operator. “Let’s show some success and then look for a restaurant operator,” Barbati said. “Failure breeds failure, success breeds success.” Mosaic has a few choices when it comes to the restaurant being planned for Osprey Village, Barbati said, including having a longterm land lease, building a restaurant for the operator providing they have good coverage or selling the land to the operator. ◗ Pitt Meadows council will hold a second hearing on the project on June 15 during its regular council meeting.

TRAFFIC LOOKING FOR TROUBLE

Jennifer Markham/TIMES

Thursday, ICBC and police collaborated in a province-wide intersection safety awareness and enforcement campaign. Spotters (like the one pictured above) were placed at the intersection of 203rd Street and Lougheed Highway to report infractions to waiting police. Eight police members stationed a coordinated campaign around the intersection to focus on driver behaviours that contribute to intersection crashes. The 203rd intersection was focused on because of its high rate of crashes. Forty per cent of police-attended crashes occur at intersections throughout B.C. Between 2005 and 2009, on average, 250 reported accidents occurred at intersections in B.C. every day. Later in the day they were also stationed around Harris Road and Lougheed Highway.

Day set for hunger awareness

Friends in Need Food Bank trying to raise community profile. JENNIFER MARKHAM editorial@mrtimes.com

C

lose to 800,000 individuals per month turn to a food bank in need of assistance in Canada. Tuesday is Hunger Awareness Day, which is meant to raise awareness of food banks and the work they do. Also, to remind Canadians that hunger is a problem in this country. The aim is to inspire Canadians to take action and assist those in need. Food Bank Canada’s mission is “to meet the short term need for food and find long-term solutions to reduce hunger.” The Friends in Need Food Bank is the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows division of the Food Banks British Columbia and started by two local women who recognized the need for one in 1989. Joanne Olson is the executive director of Friends in Need, and she says June 1 is significant because it “brings awareness during our hardest time of the year being opposite to Christmas, and schools who do food drives are finished making our major donors not around in the summer.” Olson said, “Now is when we’re really starting to need

City forced into ‘lead’ with hazardous spills After a hazardous spill last fall on Baynes Road, the City of Pitt Meadows was informed its responsibility for cleanup had been expanded without their knowledge. The provincial government informed the city their resources were being stretched and that municipalities are the “lead” in environmental spill response after any public health threat is taken care of. But the Pitt Meadows fire chief said they don’t have the training and resources to carry out hazardous material cleanups. Chief Don Jolley told council in committee on Tuesday that if the carrier that spilled hazardous material is identified, they are responsible for the cleanup, but the problem arises when the carrier can’t be identified. “It’s a significant problem that’s only going to get worse,” Jolley said. After a farm tractor spilled fungicide on Baynes Road in October, 2009, Pitt Meadows fire department contacted the Ministry of Environment to do the cleanup. After the initial three-day cleanup by a hazmat cleanup company and an environmental consultant brought in by the province, the city was informed they were respon-

sible for the rest of the cleanup — there was concern about contaminants in the ditch and drainage system which goes in the Fraser River. The city informed the ministry that they didn’t have the resources or expertise to do the cleanup as no one was trained in spill response. It turned out there wasn’t any need for further action. In January, the Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge fire department staff met with staff from the Ministry of Environment to clarify what their roles and responsibilities were. Environment ministry staff explained that their hazmat response team is operating on half the money they had a decade ago and therefore they have fewer resources to help municipalities, according to a Pitt Meadows staff report. At Tuesday’s meeting, Councillor John Becker questioned how many communities are under the false impression they’ll get help from the province in similar situations. “Apparent failure of the provincial government to adequately communicate this matter is leaving our residents at risk at the side of the road,” Becker said.

Modular classrooms needed for all-day K

‘Exploratory’ talks also in the works for a new school in south Albion area.

h e Ma p l e R i d g e - P i t t Meadows school board passed a bylaw in three

readings on Wednesday to allow site preparation for nine modulars in the school district, allowing them to apply for a $191,000 capital grant from the Ministry of Education. Si t e p re p a r a t i o n w i l l be done for a modular at Albion, Alexander Robinson, Edith McDermott, Pitt Meadows and Whonnock elementary schools and for two at Webster’s Corners and two at Kanaka Creek.

After some public questions both at a board of education and in a letter to the editor on why board meetings were so short, Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows board chair Ken Clarkson responded at Wednesday’s meeting by saying the board has improved its operations and is focused on business related to the district’s students. Recent board meetings have been under an hour in length — this week the meeting ran for an hour and 40 minutes. Public questions have been asked whether the board is doing all its work behind closed doors, thereby making the public meetings much shorter. Board chair Ken Clarkson told The TIMES that nothing has been moved to closed meetings. “One of the challenges is bringing as much as possible into open (meetings),” Clarkson said. By law, some things can’t be brought into open meetings, Clarkson said, but in their closed meetings, trustees challenge each other on why certain items aren’t being dealt with in open meetings. He added he thinks discussions around issues are

long and the board “definitely” queries the staff. “I do think we’ve increased the efficiency of the meetings through agenda (preparation),” Clarkson said. In a statement at Wednesday’s meeting, Clarkson said that “while three-hour meetings may be entertaining for a few they often do not serve our goal of doing the best for the students in our district.” He continued by saying the board is conscious of their obligation to make sure as many decisions are made in public as possible. Clarkson’s statement also reads that “we believe the shortened public meetings reflect an increased respect and cohesiveness amongst trustees which leads to efficiency for the benefit of the community we serve.” The board of education lists in its bylaws issues that are to be dealt with in closed meetings, including salaries, accident claims, legal opinions, conduct and discipline of employees, personnel changes and the lease or sale or purchase of property. However, there’s also a clause that allows matters “of a confidential nature where the Board decides the public interest so requires.”

Foreign debt all Greek to me

S

o Greece is broke. As are Portugal, Spain, Ireland, maybe Italy, maybe Great Britain, and pretty much everybody except Germany. And don’t let’s look too closely at the state of the American government’s finances. They won’t bear it, especially not once they finish vacuuming all the oil up out of the Gulf of Mexico. Also, a lot of individuals are in debt up to their eyeballs. Canadian household debt swelled to $1.3 trillion last year, and the upward curve of debt resembles the front of a toboggan. It looks like by 2020 it will have curled back over on itself. So Greece, at the apex of this mountain of debt, was on the brink of default. So its friends (well, Germany didn’t seem really friendly about it) pulled together to bail it out. How did they do this? By borrowing money, of course. Between existing government debt, debt to bail out countries who are too indebted, credit card debt, mortgage debt, car loans, lines of credit, student loans, home improvement loans, and so on, it seems to me that there might be a little bit more debt in the world than there is ever likely to be money to pay it all off. Of course, the only way to pay down debt is to spend less and save more. For countries like Greece, that

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Painful Truth

means harsh austerity measures. It means slashing pay for government workers. It means laying people off. It means cutting programs, putting off purchases of equipment. So of course, Greece and its citizens will have less money to spend. Which means they will purchase less from their neighbours, from North America, from China, and India. Which will put a small but measurable drag on the economy of the entire world. Economies will grow more slowly. There will be fewer jobs created. People will spend less, and if they are cautious, they might save more for a rainy day. That slowing economy in turn throws into doubt all the estimates for how much money will be here tomorrow to pay off today’s debt. Add to that the drag that the world will feel when the same cycle of debt/panic/bailout/austerity hits Portugal. And Spain. And Ireland. And Great Britain. And the United States. That last one might have more

than a passing impact on us. A typical would-be debtor goes to a bank, and they look at how much he or she makes, and calculate how much debt is affordable. Unfortunately, world governments skip the step of calculating how much they can afford, as do many credit card holders. And banks spent the last decade forgetting that housing prices do not go up and up and up forever. Sometimes, like faulty rockets, they crash. Major world religions once used to think that lending money for interest was usury, and it was considered inherently evil. Socialist revolutionaries railed against bankers and landlords. Tennessee Ernie Ford sang about getting “another day older and deeper in debt.” I worry now not about my personal debts, or about our national debt. I worry about everyone else’s debt. I worry that I’ll pay for it, one way or another. Unemployment, higher taxes, crummy roads, health care waits: take your pick. So I’d like to thank everyone who’s been running up this debt over the past few decades. I didn’t ask you to do it, but you did it anyway. You revved up the engine of the economy, pouring jet fuel into an economy car. Now the engine is about to burn out. Guess we’ll need a loan for a new ride.

Next spring. That’s when the province now says it will begin construction on the long-awaited Evergreen Line, which would bring SkyTrain that much closer for local commuters. The old construction date was this year, but now Transportation Minister Shirley Bond says shovels will hit the ground in spring 2011. “I can understand how people have been waiting for a very long time — in fact, decades - for this project,” Bond told Canwest News. “We have made a commitment that they’re not going to have to wait any longer. We are going to go to construction next spring.” There’s only one problem: that pesky $573-million funding shortfall. Of that amount, TransLink is on the hook for $400 million, while a proposed P3 that has yet to materialize is supposed to make up the remaining $173 million. Bond’s plan? QUOTE: Hi t u p t h e m a yo r s’ council, which consists “The mayors o f Me t r o Va n c o u v e r are in an politicians tasked with impossible approving the plans a position, with now-appointed Transonly two Link board of directors choices in comes up with. The mayors are in an front of them impossible position, with — neither only two choices in front very appetizof them — neither very ing.” appetizing. The first is to agree to a potential board plan to raise all sorts of fees to fund the Evergreen Line, a move sure to make each mayor the target of taxpayer anger. The second is to refuse to agree to such a plan, which would also make mayors the target of public anger, this time for failing to adequately fund the regional transportation system If there were a new source of money, either federal, provincial or in the form of a P3, we likely would have heard about it by now. But the feds and the province have already kicked in a combined $827 million, and it’s unlikely they plan to give more, especially as senior governments around the world contemplate raising taxes on all sorts of goods and services to make up for the borrowing done to stimulate the economy. Where does that leave the Evergreen Line? As nothing more than a plan.

MP scrutiny Editor:

Re: MP rejects more scrutiny of expenses, TIMES, May 21 M P Ra n d y Ka m p j u s t doesn’t get it. Because he says it’s so, does not make it so. This from an MP who thought Tory signatures and logos could go on PR cheques for Government of Canada projects. F. Higgs Pitt Meadows

MP responds Editor:

I must take issue with your headline above your story concerning MP expenses (MP rejects more scrutiny of expenses, May 21). In fact, that is the exact opposite of my position on this issue. What I did say is that there is already a high level of scrutiny on any and all expenses that MPs submit to the House of Commons. For instance, if my office places a newspaper advertisement in the TIMES, and the ad does not bear my name and contact information, it would be rejected as an invalid expense by Financial Services in Ottawa and I would have to pay for the ad out of my own pocket. This is just one example of the many rules that govern what is and what is not acceptable in terms of an MP office expense. The horror stories of British MPs building moats and even some provincial MLAs in Nova Scotia abusing tax-

payer funds for their own personal benefit is simply not possible under the system in place in Ottawa. It should be noted that some provincial legislatures are moving to adopt the system that we use in Ottawa because of the accountability measures that are built into it. MP expenses are already posted online and are subject to independent audits from KPMG, but if the House of Commons chose to instead have that audit function provided by the Auditor General, I do not have a problem with that. Contrary to your headline, I am in favour of more scrutiny of expenses of MP office budgets, provided that the same rules apply to every MP in every party. That is why I am glad to see that the Board of Internal Economy (comprised of MPs from all parties) has indicated their desire to work with the Auditor General to come up with a workable solution to this matter. I look forward to their report and will certainly abide by any decision that they make on this important matter. Randy Kamp, MP Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission Editor’s note: The Board of Internal Economy has rejected Auditor General Sheila Fraser’s request to audit the expense accounts of Canada’s MPs. When The TIMES interviewed Mr. Kamp for this story, he said he agreed with the stance taken by the Board of Internal Economy on this issue.

Separation anxiety

cling, but the ease to recycle in Pitt Meadows is not easy in any way. Here in Pitt Meadows, you need to separate each item and place it in the appropriate box. Glass/tin, plastics, newspapers, glossy and home office papers, cardboard — all in separate bins. If you happen to place something in the wrong bin, you get an “oops sticker” and the recycling crews decline to take any of the recycling that week. We have no green waste collection. Pitt Meadows council should look at the cause of the infractions and work on a solution fines are not going to change the problem. P i t t Me a d ow s s h o u l d changing their recycling to the way other communities have it. For example, Port Coquitlam has big bins, one for recyclables, one for green wastes. No sorting, just place the recyclables in a large bin, no sorting, no fuss, no muss. Really, the solution to getting more on the recycling wagon is to make it easy, not fine residents.

Ruskin Dam Crossing Closed June 7-25 Starting June 4, 2010, the water level in the Hayward Lake reservoir will be lowered to accommodate maintenance work on the Ruskin Dam spillway gates. Lowering of the reservoir will begin on Friday, June 4 to reach the elevation of 34.5 metres in four days. Lower than average water levels will expose steep shorelines and slippery slopes along Hayward Beach and the entire reservoir shore. The beach can be used with caution but the water will not be accessible. The Hayward Lake boat launch will be closed. The picnic grounds will remain open and available for public use. Trails will remain open; however hikers will be unable to complete the Railway/ Reservoir Trail loop due to the closure of both the Ruskin Dam and the Floating Bridge at Hairsine Creek. An environmental management plan has been developed to protect fish and wildlife during the lower water levels. The water will begin rising again on Friday, June 25. Normal operating levels will return well before Canada Day, July 1. Hayward Street across Ruskin Dam will be closed to all pedestrian and vehicle traffic

Re: Dad who molested daughter spared jail, allowed near kids, TIMES, May 25 I am livid. Crown prosecutors and Judge St. Pierre, w h e re a re y o u r h e a d s ? Assessing a 15-month conditional sentence on the perpetrator of these sexual assaults on that poor little girl is a travesty of justice. To say that “the most serious punitive sanction that could be imposed...is the dissolution of his family” is ridiculous. Did not the rest of the family also suffer the same fate from his actions and they did nothing wrong. What did he expect? To get off scotfree? He almost has. They didn’t put him on the national sex offender registry because he has an “exceedingly low risk” of re-offending. How do they know this for sure? So often we see those who have been set free after a sexual assault victimizing others again. Are we sure he is no different? “He spent 12 hours in jail.” Big deal. “Curfew between 8:30 a.m. and 6 a.m., banned from contact with his children unless in the presence of their mother, attend counselling, not be allowed to be alone with any children under 16, no pornography, 75 hours of community work service.” Is this enough for traumatizing a little girl by destroying her sense of trust and damaging her self-worth for the rest of her life? Is this enough for laying a sense of guilt on the mother that will never go away? Is that enough for the damage to the other children and extended family who are all suffering shame and distrust? I don’t think so. And what about the rest of the community around them? Little girls are saying, “If this could happen to her, maybe it could happen to me.” Has the sentence restored their confidence? Not likely. This sentence shows that the justice system has a total ignorance of the destructive effects of incest and hints of male chauvinism. In this day and age when so much more is known about the life-long effects of incest and its impact on the family and community it seems we still have a long way to go. What does this say to the community? That it’s OK to sexually abuse your child, as you will only get a slap on

Hill House open to the public for two days in June HILL, From Page 1

After putting forth their best offer, the Holts successfully secured what they would call “home” for almost a decade. “My husband told me he would one day buy this house for me. I didn’t know I was sentencing him to 10 years hard labour but he did make my dream come true,” Carolyn said. “It must be love.” The Holt family has spent just under a decade renovating and preserving the house’s best features. Previously, the last major renovation to the

house had been done in the 1960s. Refinished hardwood floors, new leaded glass, and a renovated kitchen and bathrooms replaced shag carpeting, psychedelic wallpaper, and linoleum tile. Asked how much she and Mike had to restore the home from its previous state, Carolyn answered, “100 per cent: every inch.” When the Holts took possession of the home, it had no plumbing, no electricity, no fixtures, and the floors and roof had to be refinished and redone. Thieves had poached

the radiator and light fixtures, toilets and sinks. “Over nine years, most of our spare time has been doing this [renovations],” Mike said. “We thought it would take us two years,” Carolyn added. For their efforts, the Holts received the Maple Ridge Heritage Award for Heritage Building, awarded to them by

the Maple Ridge Community Heritage Commission. Spare time was a luxury through the years, the couple held full time jobs while raising their four children and renovating the house. The Holts are opening the home up for public viewing on June 5-6 from noon to 5 p.m. both days.

Week will promote cycling to work land. Currently, only about one per cent of commuters cycle in the outlying areas of the Lower Mainland, Halas pointed out. Halas commutes to work from Silver Valley to Port Coquitlam once a week in the winter and about twice a week when the weather is better. His commute is 18 kilometres one way — about 50 minutes. Every year, Halas does the Galloping Goose trail from Swartz Bay to Victoria with his family and envisions a similar destination cycling route for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. ◗ Bike to Work Week runs from May 31 to June 5 for

hy drive under five? This is the challenge that Rick Halas and other members of the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition are presenting to residents of the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows during their fourth annual Bike to Work Week next week. This year, the focus of Bike to Work Week is on local cycling traffic. While last year stations were set up for those “sporty, hardy” cyclists who have a certain level of expertise along their work commutes, this year the focus is to “encourage people who stay within that two to five kilometre range,” Halas said. “We want to appeal to the people who stay in town,” Halas said. None of the members of the cycling coalition are purists, the Maple Ridge resident added, and they want to encourage people to cycle whenever possible to reduce car traffic, especially shorter distances under five kilometres. The local VACC chapter has challenged council and city staff from Pitt Meadows to beat their counterparts in Maple Ridge clocking cycling kilometres next week. The pr ize will be The Fork, a sculpture made by Port Moody sculptor Ian Freemantle. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said he will be cycling to work next week on the days he can. For him, there’s no question that Maple Ridge will win the trophy and they’re already clearing a space in the trophy cabinet at the municipal hall. “We’re going to wear our pride on our sleeves,” Daykin said. “We’re going to peddle

Rotary Wine Festival grants available The Meadow Ridge Rotary held its 15th annual Wine Festival on April 10. Laura Cherrille has volunteered with the festival for two years, and describes it as “a wonderful event that is very rewarding to give back to the local community.” The proceeds from this charity event are now available to

Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows non-profit organizations in the arts, culture and environmental sectors. In the past they have supported events such as local theatre groups, heritage society, and arts clubs including Gerabaldi and many festivals. Cherrille said “school music programs in

need of music equipment” could also apply. If groups are looking for funding for projects or programs that will benefit the community they can find guidelines and applications online at http:// meadowridgerotary.ca/projects/winefest. The annual deadline for receiving grant applications is June 9.

Latency returns for home shows JENNIFER MARKHAM editorial@mrtimes.com

M

aple Ridge’s very own pop rock band, The Latency will be returning home for two shows on June 4th and 6th at the Voodoo Lounge. The band is finishing a tour, including a big show in Calgary. The lead singer, Brandon Lehti said the tour has been “amazing, it’s been really cool for us.” He also said that they haven’t played a show back in Maple Ridge for at least two years and it’s going to be “awesome, we’re all stoked.” When asked how they came up with the band name, Lehti said they picked from a list of 20 words they found on encyclopedia.com and latency meant “potential energy.” Since then they’ve heard about 30 to 40 other meanings for the word, but Lehti said it was one of those “random cool things that just worked.” The Latency is currently writing a new record with 11 songs to be released at the end of this year. For now they’re mostly taking the summer off, save for a few festivals. Their website describes “the goal of the band is to make music that inspires and connects with their audience in the same way that music has inspired and connected with them.”

Addiction has me doing another line

T

here is a Chinese saying that if you don’t read for three days your conversation becomes dull. If I don’t read every day, I become dull. I fill the kettle and while it is boiling I read a poem. Sometimes one isn’t enough and I find myself chain-reading one poem after another. There is no Poems Anonymous where I can publicly admit my addiction — so I’m doing it now, to you, owning up, admitting an insatiable need for words flowing across and down a white page, my eyes unable to stop, my mind locked in to the search for another fix, for the thrill that comes with the jolt and shock of words, the sudden realizations, the soft letting go as symbols become meaning, slip through the membranes of memory and connect. I’m hooked. A word junkie. My habit fed with an unending supply boldly distributed through a network of outlets right in the centre of town: the pusher poets and book store word-lords brazenly offering their stock. I go again and again. I bring home packages secreted in plastic supermarket bags, a disguise favoured by the small side street outlets. There is never enough. When I have exhausted the usual suppliers I search in yard sales, charity shops,

ALAN WOODLAND

Here & There library book sales... I can’t remember when I became addicted. I don’t think there was one moment when I read a few lines and knew I was hooked. It happened slowly. A pinch of this, a sniff of that, my mother’s voice bringing music to nursery rhymes, my father challenging, daring with translations from Latin and Greek, with galloping horses, damsels in danger and brave men fallen from the air or lost at sea. Later, some Alice in Wonderland, a little Shakespeare, W.B.Yeats, John Masefield, Dylan Thomas, one or two verses from the Lady of Shalott; a slowly growing delight in the bubble and laughter of words, a gradual widening of the roads and rivers of words — until a day when they leapt from the page, solid and separate, each with a flavour of its own that I could taste. Lawn uncut, dishes in the sink — turn one more page, read one more line — the clock striking an unacceptable hour — another line, then another and another

as the light begins to go and night comes with the words mainlining in the mind. I’m sorry. I got carried away there. Great expression that, isn’t it — carried away. Says it all. Picked up by words and removed from wherever you were. Wherever you are. Transported to somewhere else. Somewhere new and rich and never before visited, perhaps never before imagined. Carried away — by words. Really, I just wanted to tell you that I read a poem or two every day. That’s all. I was going to suggest you might try it too. You know, the way friends like to tell each other stuff and compare interesting experiences. Sharing the buzz. But, as I said, I got carried away. I don’t really think of reading as an addiction. You can always put the book down: decide that one poem a day is enough, like a multivitamin. Tr y it. If you have no poems close by go to the library. Borrow some. Go to Black Bond, The Bookcase Co., Call in on Carolyn, see Nicole at Tomes and Tales. Buy a book. Open it. Riffle through the pages. Stop at random. Read a few lines. It won’t harm you. Won’t destroy your well-ordered life and your relationships with others. You might find you like it. It might even become a habit.

Utility player off to B.I.G. league

Royals beat TriCity after loss in A 20-year-old Maple Ridge resident’s Wash. tourney

The Ridge Meadows Royals Midget AAA team were on the road in Washington for the Puyallap Memorial Day Day Classic, which they lost in the semifinals. They started the tournament by beating their league rivals Richmond Chuckers 4-1 on Saturday. Then they faced Reality Sports and beat them 9-1 in their first game but fell to them 8-3 in their second. The Royals were back home on Tuesday and managed to beat the Tri-City Indians 10-0 in six innings. Brandon Sound was pitching for the Royals and recorded his first shutout of the season. The Royals host the MidIsland Mustangs this Sunday at the Albion Sports Complex with a double-header. The first game starts at 11 a.m.

raxton Lawrence’s parents are his biggest fans. Lawrence can thank dad Tony and mom Wendy for helping him sharpen his baseball skills, to a point where he will be among 90 players aged 20 and older taking part in a two-month league which will give them a blueprint on how to become a professional. The 20-year-old Maple Ridge resident flies to Tucson, Ariz. Monday to take part in the 2010 Baseball International Group (B.I.G.) Pro Scout Summer League. In preparation for his American excursion, Lawrence and his dad made almost daily trips to the Albion Sports Complex’s baseball diamond. There, Tony pitched roughly 200 balls to Braxton, who used different types of training bats to knock them out to the field. Tony also hit fly balls and grounders for his son to field before they headed home for more hitting practice and conditioning. “I have to give huge credit to my mom and dad,” said Lawrence, a baseball chameleon who received the utility player of the year award at the end of the 2008 season while with the Coquitlam Reds of the B.C. Premier Baseball League (BCPBL). He was also selected as a BCPBL first team all-star that season. Starting this week, Lawrence will be away from home, being fed a daily

diet of baseball while living among other B.I.G. participants in an apartment complex in Tucson. Of the 90 players, 26 allstars will be selected to represent B.I.G. to play in the NBC World Series in Wichita, Kansas. The double elimination competition will involve 36 of the best college teams in the United States. Lawrence said he was sure he would be involved in that tournament. Leading up to the World Series which starts July 30, the B.I.G. players will play a series of games from Monday to Saturday each week at the Kino Sports Complex and Tucson Electric Park. “There’s going to be people coming from all over,” Lawrence explained. “We’re going to be playing in a major league spring training field. It’s going to be fun. It’s going to be really good.” Lawrence cut his baseball teeth playing in Maple Ridge, from mosquito-age to the bantam ‘AAA’ level. A former member of the Kwantlen Eagles, his ultimate goal is to be drafted by a Major League Baseball (MLB) team. A step towards Lawrence’s MLB dream was playing for a prospect team in Lodi, Calif. last season, after being noticed at a MLB open tryout in Sacramento. He was the lone Canadian and one of the youngest players on the squad. L e o n L e e, L a w re n c e’s coach in Lodi, is running the

raised each year, Lawrence’s focus on baseball intensifies. “It’s definitely more serious, as opposed to when I was little,” he said. “I have a passion about it. It’s some-

Don’t be afraid to hold your water H CHEF DEZ

On Cooking the liquid be? Maybe just replacing a portion of the water would be the solution or leaving the recipe in its original state is just fine. Make notes in your cookbooks for future reference. Rice cooked in chicken stock, for example, has more flavour than if it was cooked in only water. I know that may seem quite obvious, so let me give you some ideas with the following liquids: Red Wine or Dark Beer are great additions to red meat and tomato dishes, such as pasta sauce, gravies, chili, stir-fry’s, soups, stews, etc. A general ‘rule of thumb’ is the stronger the flavours in a certain dish, then the more robust wine/beer it can handle as an ingredient. White Wine is better suited to cream sauces, poultry gravies, lighter soups, and seafood. Broth, Stock, or Vegetable Juices can be paired up with certain dishes, based on the flavours you want to impart, albeit chicken, beef or vegetable. Broth/stock is an option for almost any savoury dish.

Fruit juices can also be used in savour y dishes (savoury is the opposite of sweet). A delicious example would be an orange ginger stir-fry made from orange juice. These are only suggestions as there are countless options and combinations to try. Keep tasting and taking notes. Your cookbooks may turn out looking like high-school textbooks, but for the sake of better eating — it is worth it. Dear Chef Dez:

If I don’t have white wine and a recipe calls for it as an ingredient? Tim M. Nanaimo Dear Tim:

If you want to keep the recipe tasting as close to the way it was written then I would suggest white grape juice or apple juice, as long as the quantity is minimal. The main consideration with fruit juices is their higher sugar content could drastically affect the outcome of the recipe. Therefore it is better to use them in smaller quantities, unless your goal is a sweet finish. Darker berry and grape juices can also be used in small amounts in place of red wine.

ow many recipes have you seen that list water as an ingredient? A pasta sauce recipe, for example, may say to add a cup of water. How much flavour does water have? None. I am always preaching to be innovative while cooking and add ingredients other than water such as wine, broth, beer, juice, etc because they have more flavour. Although most can, some recipes cannot adapt to this type of modification. It will usually depend on the amount of seasonings/flavour already in the dish. The first thing to examine is the amount of water the recipe suggests. If the amount is of minuscule proportion, then typically replacing the water shouldn’t be a concern. The choice of distinctive liquid would accent the flavours without overpowering the dish. If the recipe states a large quantity of water, then one must examine what the other ingredients are and how much flavour they will impart on their own. This is not as complicated as it may sound. The most effective way to determine if a recipe can accept any variation is to make it the way it is written first and then listen to your taste buds. Could it use more flavour? If so, what would complement it and how pungent/mellow can

May 30 - June 5

Aries March 21 - April 19: Be on your toes Sunday/Monday, respond to higher-ups, be ambitious. Fun, light romance, optimism, fresh horizons buoy your heart Tuesday/Wednesday! All this hopefulness still brings you to a choice between two people, prospects, actions, just as it has since last October. But this choice is about to be eradicated (by next week). Something major is about to end. Be gracious about it. You might be anxious about it this Thursday to Saturday, as your energy, charm and self-confidence fall briefly. (Rest, don’t act.) You’re about to be free, cheerful, hopeful, next week into September!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Lie low, rest, contemplate, seek spiritual awareness, be charitable, deal with government, large corporations and institutions. Fulfil obligations, but don’t volunteer for more. Your solitude will be lightened two ways: 1) it’s sweet; and 2) talkative friends seek you out. Use this quiet period to plan, because next week into September will offer luck in career, business and prestige arenas. Approach others, co-operate Sunday/Monday: that person could bring you significant benefits, wisdom. Secrets, sex, big finances fill mid-week. You reach mellow understanding Thursday to Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead feature love, wisdom, logic, higher education, far travel, legal and cultural events. June to September boosts your luck in relationships, opportunities, litigation, contracts, public interfacing and relocation. (These might arise through a conversation, or “casual” friend.) To increase this luck, seek partnership, go outward, further the desires of others. It’s a mere foretaste of 2011’s luck, unless you were born around Sept. 2326 (in which case it could be major now). You might fear “partnering” or an Aries all June/July – trust your instincts. Love, midweek.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You face several weeks of chores. A Gemini would make a great helper, if you can enlist him/her. Your energy and effectiveness are tops Sunday/Monday, so start projects, tackle “feared” chores. (But sign nothing, nor woo anyone, Sunday.) Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday – Tuesday better. Travel, details, reports, communications draw your focus Thursday-Saturday, not importantly. This week is the last of 30 that brought a powerful financial, life-change, research, intimate, mysterious trend. Now doubts arise about what you did, committed to: be calm, good luck will “rescue” you!

Taurus April 20-May 20: Chase money, buy, sell, ask for a pay raise, cultivate new clients, etc. A long, friction-prone period in your domestic, realty and family arenas will turn to harmony by next week onward. Communications, travel and relations with siblings are sweet, affectionate all week, but don’t let affection nudge you into making a promise or a new relationship (or embarking on a trip) Sunday – there’s a hidden trap here. Sunday/Monday are mellow, wise. Be ambitious Tuesday (especially) and Wednesday. Popularity, happiness, flirtation, entertainment and bright horizons come Thursday-Saturday!

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your hopes rise on a breeze of popularity, wishful thinking, light romantic feelings and just an all-round joy in life! Since last October, you’ve been scowling (and red-faced, physically) more than usual, but next week dissolves this influence, and new friends will flow in! (They flow your way this week, too, especially Tuesday/Wednesday – but “friend” isn’t the word: enemy or intense attraction are more accurate terms.) Tackle chores Sunday/ Monday. Exciting meetings, opportunities mid-week. Mysteries, intimacy, significant choices/commitments arise Thursday onward: go slow, reject fantasy.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead accent romance, creativity, charming kids, speculation, sports, pleasure and beauty – you’re on a winning streak! But retreat Sunday/Monday: rest, contemplate, tidy up neglected places and friendships. Your energy and charisma surge upward Tuesday/Wednesday – chase any goal you want, including romance! For seven months you’ve faced impatient opposition from others (or heightened but fractious attraction). This “angry” trend dissolves next week. In June/July, you’ll be exploring or talking about secrets, intimacies, large sums of money. Co-workers remain affectionate.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma, effectiveness and clout hit a high note! Charge forth, accomplish, start significant new projects, demand action, ask favours, see and be seen. You’ll impress others! Your money picture looks good, but don’t make decisions/plans nor take action here Sunday, as a subtle trap lurks. You’re still restless, travelprone, but this will ebb next week onward, as will your tendency to be a little forceful in speech and writing. June/July might bring an end to dealings with an Aries. Finances, sex, research Sunday/ Monday. Mellow love mid-week. Be ambitious Thursday onward.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Ambition, prestige, community status, career, dealings with authorities and higher-ups, parents, judges, bosses – these fill the weeks ahead. Sunday/Monday are romantic, creative, kids charm you – but commit to nothing Sunday (a subtle trap lurks). Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday. You’ll meet both opportunities and opposition Thursday to Saturday – be diplomatic. For seven months sex, intimacy, large finances, investments and lifestyle choices have irked, restricted, frightened you. In June/July you’ll seize these matters with a successful brew of courage and (sexual) magnetism! Big changes!

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The weeks ahead hold mysteries and demand research. Use your interior radar; look for skeletons, solutions and treasures. Commitment, consequence, intimacy, large finances, lifestyle changes, deep health and depth psychology, occultism, hidden meanings and “eureka” moments will occur. Your logic and intuition will operate smoothly and well, but careful Sunday, when these represent a possible trap. Write reports, notes (or travel) Sunday/ Monday. Take a deep rest Tuesday/Wednesday. Your romantic, creative, risky, winning side emerges Thursday to Saturday. Angry or impatient bosses withdraw soon. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Make no money agreements/commitments Sunday, but do chase the stuff (or buy things) Monday. The weeks ahead hold excitingmeetings,opportunities,relocation,negotiations, dealings with the public – and opposition, perhaps enmity. Marriage and divorce. So much depends on your life thus far, and your nature. Investments, intimacy, lifestyle changes hold a sweet trap Sunday, sweet success Monday. Talk, travel mid-week. Retreat to reorganize home, business foundations, to recuperate Thursday onward. A legal fight might end soon. Be cautious with bosses, judges June/July.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Minor wishes come true Sunday/Monday.June accents your domestic scene,real estate, security, food, diet, mother nature, gardening, nurturing, infants and toddlers. You’ve experienced a streak of freedom or of expanded, hopeful vision this year – now, in June, you need to decide who and what to stick with, and who/what is stale, restricting you. Two things happen in the coming weekend (June 5/6): three months of good money and sensual luck begin; and two months of heightened relationship intensity commence. Money and love could mingle. You will be very attracted, or angry. Friday gives clues. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
