Upfront IN BRIEF Boy falls from home’s window

A six-year-old Maple Ridge boy was airlifted to B.C. Children’s Hospital with serious head injuries after he fell out of a second-storey window Thursday. RCMP say the incident happened around 4 p.m. in the 23800-block 117B Avenue in east Maple Ridge. Three off-duty members of the Maple Ridge Fire Department and a retired member of the RCMP, who all live nearby, rushed to the boy’s aid, police say. The boy was taken to a nearby school field, where he was picked up by air ambulance.

Conditions to be perfect for West Nile Virus Environment Canada predicts a summer of sunny, warm temperatures with a bit of rainfall, creating perfect weather for most Canadians. But the pleasant forecast is also the perfect climate for a season plagued by virus-carrying mosquitoes -especially in B.C. Specialists are warning regions across Canada -- including Quebec and Saskatchewan, which have been abandoning their mosquito-control programs -- that the anticipated summer heat could be accompanied by an outbreak of West Nile virus. Environment Canada predicts above-normal temperatures, exceeding 20 C for most of the country -excluding Vancouver, which should sound warning bells for a potential outbreak. — Canwest News

Array of cuts proposed in SD42 prelim budget Areas such as work experience, Odyssey program and Reading Racers would see reductions if budget approved Wednesday. MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

T

h e Ma p l e R i d g e - P i t t Meadows board of education will vote on Wednesd a y o n i t s p re l i m i n a r y 2010/11 budget with a net reduction of $878,101. The budget cuts will affect non-classroom teachers, administrators and support staff as well as busing services and learning support and supplies totaling approximately $1.093 million of which at least $253,000 resulted from the closure of two schools. However, about $215,000 was reallocated to different areas, for example, the Reading Racers program and student safety and antivandalism initiatives. Teacher salaries will be reduced by $267,006.

This includes cuts to work experience and collegial support teaching staff, who will have their time reduced and reallocated to classrooms. The Odyssey program which supports home schoolers will be reduced by .8 full-time equivalent person. There will be one fewer administrator in the school district with the budget cuts. Since Mount Crescent and Riverside elementary schools are being closed, those administrator positions won’t be needed, but because of an increase of students at Maple Ridge Elementary, that school will receive a new vice-principal. The board is also looking at small cuts to custodial, clerical and library resource staff in the school district to

save $177,047. While money is being put aside for the Reading Racers program for the upcoming year, last year there were seven sections of the program, whereas this year there will only be three. St u d e n t e n r o l m e n t i s expected to drop by about 250 students this fall, which reduces the overall revenue. In addition, increases in teacher pensions of $760,000, a $65,000 increase for Medical Services Plan, $530,000 in inflation and $125,000 of Ministry of Education cash flow changes were additional cost pressures trying to balance the budget. The board of education will vote on the budget in three parts in order to avoid any conflicts of interest for the trustees.

Trial witness disappears AMY STEELE asteele@mrtimes.com

The trial for Parker Scott Meadows, who is accused of attempting to kill 35-yearold Kenneth Heathorn last year, was adjourned Monday after a witness didn’t appear to testify. The witness had shown up when the trial first started but was asked to leave while the Crown and defence gave their opening statements. When he was called back into the courtroom to testify he was nowhere to be found. New Westminster Supreme Court Justice Peter Leask issued a material witness warrant for him to appear. “Well that’s a jolly good beginning,” said Leask, after hearing he wasn’t around to testify. Meadows is accused of shooting Heathorn in the 11700 block of Darby Street on June 11, 2009. Heathorn was in hospital for three weeks after the shooting but recovered. Crown Prosecutor Peter Benning said Heathorn was shot the same day he was

released from jail and he suffered a “sucking chest wound.” Heathorn was acquitted in June of various charges related to a beating and shooting of a 20-year-old man at a house party on Nov. 8, 2008 in Maple Ridge. He had been charged with discharging a firearm with intent to wound, aggravated assault, use of a firearm in commission of an offence, break and enter and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose. However, Crown prosecutor Janet Dickie said in an interview with The TIMES the charges were stayed midway through his trial because there was no longer a strong likelihood of conviction. Benning said after Heathorn was shot he was driven to Ridge Meadows Hospital by two women. He said one made a statement to police but the other declined to do so. The one who made a statement identified Meadows as the shooter. The other woman only made a statement recently and said she didn’t know

Groups urge pesticide ban TAMARA BALUJA CanWest News Service

Several B.C. health organizations are pushing the Liberals to stop talking about a “cosmetic” pesticides ban, and get on with passing one. Pesticides used to get rid of weeds in lawns and gardens are purely cosmetic, but they pose a significant health risk, says Barbara Kaminsky, CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society for B.C. and Yukon. “It is time that the government did the right thing and protected its residents from an unnecessary cancer risk,” Kaminsky said, noting the Liberal government has been deliberating on the issue for over two years. The Canadian Cancer Society and seven other groups,

Meadows and wouldn’t be able to identify him in a photo lineup. Benning told Leask that he anticipated the first witness, who the warrant went out for, would say he remembered nothing about the events in question. Benning said he wanted to make an application under section 9 (2) of the criminal code, which if successful would allow him to crossexamine his own witness for testimony that was inconsistent with a prior statement. Meadows’ defence lawyer said the one witness who said Meadows was the shooter never saw a gun in his hand. She said police never found a weapon and don’t have any forensic evidence linking Meadows to the shooting. Meadows was charged with attempted murder, using a restricted or prohibited firearm, aggravated assault and unauthorized possession of a firearm. The trial was expected to resume this afternoon after the TIMES’ press deadline.

including the Public Health Association of B.C., say that B.C. should follow the lead of Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia in enacting provincial legislation. More than 25 municipalities in B.C., including Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond and Maple Ridge, already have bylaws to restrict the use of lawn and garden pesticides. Dr. Bruce Lanphear of the University of B.C.’s department of pediatrics says repeated exposure to pesticides can cause behavioural problems in children, such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and several studies have linked them to non-Hodgkin lymphoma, childhood leukemia and cancers of brain, lung and prostate.

◗ Opinion

Unhappy with right and wrong

L

ike gambling, alcohol, crack a n d , a c c o rd i n g t o Ti g e r, sex, the need to be right often becomes an addiction. It is a tyrannical master that once established, allows no questioning of its authority. Nowhere is the power of “I’d rather be right than happy” more evident than in the Middle East. There, the Israeli government excuses questionable actions on the grounds that it is right and the Palestinians are wrong. At the same time, Hamas the duly elected government in Gaza continues to espouse the insane view that Israel ought to be wiped out. Between these two rights there is little room if any to maneuver. The most popular game in the area is not soccer; it is intransigency and it has been going on for so long it will soon be confused with cricket. On one side is Israel, concerned for its security and outraged that Hamas indiscriminately lobs rockets into Israel. According to the hardliners, that gives Israel the right to not only blockade Gaza but also to board any aid ships bound for Gaza. On the other side, we have the Palestinians contained in two areas, the West Bank and Gaza. Their politics are as divided as their living space. In the West Bank, Fatah is the ruling party while in Gaza, it is Hamas, a group that openly states its hatred of all things Israeli while refusing to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist.

LYN COCKBURN

Straight Talk This unreasonable need to be right leads to all sorts of nonsense. For example, on the weekend we were treated to the spectacle of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisting that all nine of the activists killed when Israeli commandos stormed the aid ships were “thugs looking for a fight.” And a spokesman for the Israeli government insisted that if Israel lets in one aid ship the next one is sure to be full of armaments. At the same time, there’s the distasteful sight of Hamas members fairly jumping up and down in glee as they hurl yet more violent invective at their Israeli neighbours. Some of my Jewish friends point out that much of the criticism of Israel is based on antiSemitism. And often, that is indeed true. However, no amount of undeserved criticism excuses Israel when it takes disproportionately violent action. Ditto Muslims. No amount of insensitive invective directed at Muslims excuses extremists from terrorist activity. Nobody gets a bye here. Do all Israelis play the ‘I’m always right game’? Of course not. On my last visit to Israel, I argued

with Jews who believe it is their right to take over every bit of land mentioned in the Bible and I talked with Jews who openly criticize the actions of their government. Currently, the most striking example involves a group of top Israeli Navy reserve officers who on the weekend publicly called for an external probe into the commando raid. In a letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu, the officers denounced the raid, saying it “ended in tragedy both at the military and diplomatic levels.” Netanyahu responded by reiterating his intention of holding an internal probe. And do all Palestinians support the extremism of Hamas? Of course not. The majority of Palestinians simply want a better life for their children. Between the hard-line Israeli government ‘s insistence that it is always right and the equally obdurate Hamas view, is there any room for reasonable discussion? It is a question to which nobody has the answer. What is obvious is that this intransigence has not and is not working - for anybody, Israeli or Palestinian. Perhaps when the Israelis and the Palestinians are ready to consider that they are both right some of the time and wrong some of the time, peace may become possible. In other words, it may be that each side has to accept that the other side is right. And wrong.

Imagine that a group of homeless people had shoes thrown at them, along with nasty names and spit. Would you privately cheer because you are sick of homeless people in Maple Ridge? Now imagine that those homeless people were actually local Grade 6 and 7 school children. Still privately cheering? That’s what happened when a leadership class at Alouette Elementary held an amazing event last Thursday (See Page 12). The class was given the task of living a little like a homeless person for the school day. They had to build their own shelter using tarps. They were encouraged to refrain from using the indoor bathroom. They ate very little, doling out meagre rations of crackers. Then, after a while of living in the shelter, they were forced to leave with little notice. When a TIMES reporter spoke with the students earlier in the day, they were starting to get an idea of what it’s like to be homeless. It made them think, but they were still pretty cheery about the whole exercise. In the afternoon, it was a different story. After the school day ended, students poured out to go home and some came by the “homeless” students. What happened next was not set up as part of the whole exercise. A few students apparently thought it would be funny to hurl insults at the “homeless” as well objects such as shoes. Some of these “funny” students even spit at the “homeless” kids. When The TIMES interviewed the class late in the day, many of them were devastated. They felt that their exercise had failed. We don’t agree. While we’re concerned that some students could be so ignorant, it’s not surprising considering how many adults act towards local homeless people. We think the incidents will spur more discussion at the school and will, in the end, result in more compassion towards the homeless. We can all learn something from this exercise. Homeless people are often mentally ill or facing staggering addictions brought on by childhood abuse. They deserve our support and compassion not our vitriol. Sometimes you just have to walk a mile in their shoes.

Re: Mixed reaction to election task force, TIMES, June 4, 2010 As usual, councillors (in Maple Ridge) find things to debate rather than the real matters. We have had all kinds of people run for mayor and council; those with money, and those without so much and, apart from the leftleaning candidates, many changes in personnel have occurred over the years. Still, very little gets done. The downtown core is finally getting some facelifts, but that appears to be it. Everything else is stagnant, and bickering over land use and great offers such as Jackson Farm and Pelton, give people chances to vent their own private issues and bring children out with signs. As this council and many before have lost the shopping centre race, and we have it now conveniently next door and across the river, they should be concentrating on a business base for taxes, which means industrial land, and buildings for them to operate from. Do they work on those thoughts? No, they dispute who can donate, and who can’t, who can accept, and who can’t, all things the voters aren’t concerned with,

Wheels in motion Sunday JENNIFER MARKHAM editorial@mrtimes.com

T

eam members can expect to race in a wheelchair with a bowl full of water sitting in their lap this Sunday at the Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion Event. So far there are 11 teams of five people, including fire department teams and a paddle club team. Teams have been working to fundraise before the event, and some have already reached their goals. The community leader for the event, Randall Didiuk, said: “Come down,

check it out, buy a hamburger and cheer them on.” At 11 a.m., teams will timed as they race in wheel chairs and overcome challenges. The event has grown since last year, when only six teams competed. Last year was also the first year politicians took part. This year Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows both have teams. At 2:30 p.m. both mayors will compete in a tournament show down. Last year Ernie Daykin took the win. Of the money raised from the event, half goes towards local community causes such as adaptive

leisure equiptment, elevators and adaptive kayaks to name some examples from last year. The other half goes towards research in spinal cord injuries such as nerve tissue regeneration. Didiuk encourages families to bring a picnic lunch, and enjoy the festivities for a few hours. He also said, “if someone is wishing to put together a team, and raise some money, please give me a call.” Contact Randall Didiuk at 377-7765. The festivities take place at the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre.

the past to raise awareness, including a 24-hour vow of silence to support people in the community that have no voice. The $570 they raised for that event was given to Free the Children Foundation. The students commented that at lunch hour their fellow classmates were curious and somewhat willing to listen, but after school that mood changed. As part of creating an authentic experience, the students were asked to move from their shelter they built in the morning on the playground, to the front of the school. The parents who approached the children were curious, and told them it was a good cause. The reactions from fellow

classmates brought about feelings of hurt, and empathy for the homeless. When the leadership students tried to hand out information slips about what they were doing, some were crumpled and thrown back. One student in the leadership class commented that the whole thing might have been a failure, but it was suggested that instead of raising awareness in their community, they rose awareness in themselves of how important and needed the work they’re doing really is. When asked if the students thought their experience was representative of what homeless people experience, they agreed it must be worse for the homeless. Hearn said, “Nothing they believed before is the same.”

Brayden Grozdanich, three, smiled while aboard his adapted tricycle, while representatives from McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Ltd. presented a $15,000 grant to the Ridge Meadows Child Development Centre.

Big wheels keep on turning thanks to program TROY LANDREVILLE editorial@mrtimes.com Brayden Grozdanich has his own shiny set of wheels to ride on, thanks to an innovative program offered by the Ridge Meadows Child Development Centre (RMCDC). Brayden, 3, has a blast buzzing around on a modified tricycle loaned to him by the

centre as part of its Adapted Bicycle Program. When Brayden outgrows the bike, it will be handed down to another child of his current size. “He loves to ride his bike,” Brayden’s mom Toni said. “All he wants to do is ride his bike and blast through puddles.” Brayden is a beneficiary of the program, which received a financial shot in the arm Tues-

day morning from McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Ltd. McDonald’s representatives Angena Kumar, Robbin McManne, and Darren Harper presented a cheque for $15,000 to the RMCDC. The grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities will support the centre’s adapted bikes and toys program, as well as child literacy.

The Chief Scout’s Award is the highest award which can be achieved at the Scout level. This year’s local recipients are Andrew Pengelly, Brandon Champagne, Clayton Jensen, Derrick Tam, Jaime Whitford, Leonie Uriel, Liam Kent, and Matthew Piton. Peter Tam, the retired Area Commissioner, said, “what is exceptional about these kids is that they put a lot of time in community services.” They have volunteered with many local organizations, including Alouette River Management Society and the recycling society. Tam said, “these are the kids that have done more than their share.”

s the BC Lions get set to tackle another season at this year’s training camp in Kamloops, many players have wrapped up another round of community and school appearances. These off-season endeavours are a big part of the Lions’ community relations program, and players and staff log hundreds of hours each year speaking to students, making special appearances and spreading positive messages to young people. Lions centre and Lower Mainland native Dean Valli says participating in these programs can be as fulfilling as putting points on the board at a game. “I’ve been involved with several of the club’s community programs for a few years now and it’s a great feeling to know you’re setting a positive example for kids while having fun at the same time!” Some of the Lions programs include:

Lions in the House The Lions in the House program is designed specifically for students in grades 8 to 12 and emphasizes the importance of positive life skills development for students and their schools. This year, Lions defensive assistant Barron Miles and centre Angus Reid traveled to secondary schools and engaged students in an interactive assembly with physical activity and motivational speeches on fitness and nutrition, bullying, continuing education, and maintaining a positive attitude. In all, Lions visited 30 schools across the Lower Mainland, speaking to more than 3,000 students as part of the program. Lions Pride This new addition to the BC Lions school program was launched this year. In partnership with the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General, the BC Lions are inspiring youth to be active, make positive choices and excel. Lions Pride is designed for youth in grades 8 to 12 and combines school visits with the creation of a flag football program. BC Lions Terasen Gas Energy Champions This program is designed specifically for children in

kindergarten through Grade 7, emphasizing the importance of environmental responsibility and being an “Energy Champion.” In 2010, the BC Lions Terasen Gas Energy Champions program has visited 75 elementary schools throughout the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Interior and northern B.C.

Read, Write & Roar The 2010 season marks the ninth year of this BC Lions’ literacy program in partnership with Literacy BC, the Vancouver Public Library, the Vancouver School Board and participating elementary schools. The program reached 15 school districts and more than 25,000 elementary school students, stressing the importance of literacy through a fun and captivating journal. Courage for Kids In 2009, the BC Lions continued their par tnership with United Way of the Lower Mainland in support of this program. More than 6,000 children were given the opportunity to attend a BC Lions home game during the season thanks to the generosity of Courage For Kids sponsors and the United Way of the Lower Mainland. Every Yard Counts In 2010, the BC Lions will continue to partner with BC Children’s Hospital for the Every Yard Counts program. This initiative provides an opportunity for children to attend a BC Lions home game, allowing them to get away from their treatment schedules and the everyday battles they fight. While the children get an opportunity to experience the excitement and emotion of a CFL game, they also have a chance to meet some of the BC Lions players. The interactions have far-reaching effects by creating feelings of hope and happiness, making it an enjoyable and rewarding program for everyone involved. Contacts For more information on any of these BC Lions programs, please contact the Lions’ director of community relations, Jamie Taras, at jtaras@bclions.com.

1105 OLING Robert George December 23, 1931 - May 30, 2010. It is with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to George today. The courage and dignity that George showed in the almost four years he battled with cancer, only served to make us more proud of the amazing person he was throughout his entire life. Dad’s greatest joy was his family and he treasured the moments spent with them. He will be dearly missed by his wife of 54 years Audrey Oling, daughter Darlene (Mike) Gamache, son Garry (Loralee) Oling, loving sister Margaret (Dale) Storer, sister-in-law Edna (Pat) Hayward, sister-inlaw Pat (Ed) James, and brother-in-law Jack (Linda) MacIsaac. He shared many special moments with his four grandson’s Clint (Laura) Gamache, Derreck (Christine) Gamache, Jordan Oling and Dallas Oling; also missing him very much are his most treasured and loved great granddaughers’ Brooke, Peyton, Jaylyn and soon to be fourth great grandchild in July. A celebration of George’s life will be held on Friday, June 11th at 11:00am at the Eagles Boy Scout Hall, 23461 Fern Crescent, Maple Ridge. Dad loved all animals very much and it showed by the many strays he brought home and nursed back to health donations to the BC Cancer society or BC SPCA or charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
