Grant’s killer returns to jail

D

arnell Pratt, who dragged 24year-old Grant De Patie for seven kilometres under a stolen car in an attempted gas-and-dash, is back in jail after not returning to the halfway house he was required to live at as part of his statutory release. Police issued a Canada-wide warrant for Pratt after he failed to show up at his Kamloops halfway house Friday. He was arrested Saturday evening. Jean-Paul Lorieau, acting regional manager of community relations and training for the National Parole Board, told The TIMES in a previous interview that the board imposed “the most restrictive set of conditions” it could possibly impose on Pratt for his statutory release. He was required to stay at a halfway house and wasn’t eligible for any leave privileges such as weekend passes. Pratt was also required to receive psychological counselling from a psychologist or elder to “address unresolved emotional issues,” to participate in community based substance counselling and programming to address mental health, substance abuse and violence, abstain from alcohol and drugs and not associate with anyone involved in criminal activity or substance abuse. He also was not allowed to have direct or indirect contact with De Patie’s family. Alain Charette, spokesperson for the Correctional Service of Canada, said Pratt is back in jail and a parole officer will now have 30 days to decide what will happen. Pratt could be returned to the community under the original conditions imposed by the board or, if the parole officer decides he should remain in jail, the matter would have to go back to the board

for a decision. “We will look at the facts and make a well-thought decision on this situation with the new facts we have and based on that the future course of action will be determined,” said Charette. Doug De Patie, Grant De Patie’s father, told Canwest News Pratt going on the lam was “a letdown.” “I’m disappointed in him right now, but I really do want him to do the best — because it cost Grant his life to try and stop Darnell.” He added that he was “disappointed” with the parole officer and the Correctional Service of Canada. “How c o r re c t e d i s h e ? He couldn’t even last two days. He’s got two years left in his sentence, so if he can’t meet the conditions, he should be back in jail serving those two years. That’s justice.” Pratt, who was 16 at the time of the crime, received a nine-year sentence for killing De Patie. However, in April 2007 the B.C. Court of Appeal reduced his manslaughter sentence to seven years, factoring in credit for time served prior to sentencing. According to the National Parole Board, his full sentence was six years and two months and De Patie’s statutory release period would end on July 10, 2012. During his sentencing the court heard that Pratt, an aboriginal, was raised by a single mother addicted to meth and he had been in and out of government care since he was 12. He had a Grade 8 education and admitted to being drunk daily after he turned 16. The B.C. Court of Appeal found that his youth and aboriginal background should have been given more consideration in the original sentence and the court emphasized Pratt’s rehabilitation as a factor in sentencing.

At the celebration on Saturday, which will take place in conjunction with the Haney Farmers Market, there will be official welcoming speeches from Katzie and Kwantlen First Nations, a Metis broom dance, and performances by the Fraser Valley Youth Jiggers, the Blackfish Drum Group and other traditional groups. The National Aboriginal Day celebration, which is presented by Community Services and was previously held at their facility, will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Farmers Market event runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and has many vendors on site selling fresh seasonal items to the public.

Wanted: 10 people willing to take back control of their lives and beat the fear and anxiety that runs them. Alouette Addictions Services will be running this 10-week group every Monday from 1-2:30 p.m. starting June 28th. Call Karen at 467-5179 to sign up for this popular group.

Retrofits leave cops without any jail cells AMY STEELE asteele@mrtimes.com

R

idge Meadows RCMP will have to get by for three to six months without any police cells at the local detachment due to retrofits required under federal legislation to ensure prisoner and staff safety. “It’s going to be a bit of a logistics challenge for us,” said Superintendent Dave Walsh. Walsh said the detachment is still consulting with

the contractor about how long it will take but the retrofit requires removing load bearing walls and essentially gutting the cells. He said Ridge Meadows RCMP will have to take prisoners to Coquitlam during the renovation period, which he said “makes sense” because that’s where the courthouse is that the prisoners would have to be escorted to anyway. Wa l s h e s t i m a t e s t h e detachment deals with between four and five pris-

oners a day and he estimates officers would have to escort prisoners to Coquitlam two or three times in a 12-hour period. Police officers would also have to collect fingerprints and photographs taken at Coquitlam RCMP cells of the prisoners and would have to be there during hearings with a justice of the peace done over the telephone to determine whether the prisoner stays in custody or not. “We’re hopeful (the renovations will be done) in a

shorter timeframe because the longer we go the more money it will be and the more time for our officers,” said Walsh. The retrofits are required to upgrade safety standards for staff and prisoners, he said. The standards have been put in place to protect suicidal or mentally ill prisoners but also cell guards, he said. Wa l s h s a i d t h e R i d g e Meadows cells still have bars on them, which prisoners could use to try and

hang themselves. As well, prisoners can reach through the bars and grab guards or spit or throw bodily fluids at guards. Walsh said if there ever was a situation where there wasn’t enough room in Coquitlam RCMP cells local jails have offered to help Ridge Meadows RCMP out. Walsh updated Maple Ridge council on the cell situation and other issues at Monday’s workshop. See COPS, Page 7

Plan samples project funding MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A financial and implementation plan is needed for the final 10-year master plan for parks, recreation and culture so the communities can start planning when new facilities can be built. The final Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan will be discussed at today’s Pitt Meadows’ council in committee meeting and includes a section on implementation and funding and gives a sample implementation schedule. The various projects were classified according to their priority, with a seniors centre in Pitt Meadows, a new aquatic and fitness centres, converting Pitt Meadows

Heritage Hall into a performing arts venue, and hiring a Pitt Meadows area manager and a youth and children’s program manager as high priorities. Other high priorities were trails, the Hammond spray park and better communication. The priority ranking was based on public consultation, ranking by staff and the parks and leisure commission and both the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows councils. The Parks and Recreation Commission recommended that both councils adopt the master plan, but the funding models need to come from the two councils. Staff have also stated in the report that it’s “critical” the two councils develop a

funding model for the master plan this fall for the next 10 years. Ad o p t i o n o f t h e p l a n doesn’t mean the implementation schedule will be adhered to; rather Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows councils will establish “funding envelopes” during this fall’s business planning cycle. The example implementation plan suggests a one per cent increase in taxes in Pitt Meadows in order to build reserves with a 1.5 per cent increase in 2017, at which time an indoor pool next to the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre could be completed. In Maple Ridge, the example plan suggests a tax increase in 2013 of .5 per cent and of one per

cent in subsequent years. This would allow for capital and operating funds for a 300-person banquet hall in Maple Ridge, upgrades to the Albion Fairgrounds, and a community centre in east Maple Ridge.

sion about it “given that there’s a lot of concern about salaries and the widening gap between the rich and the poor and all kinds of other issues.” She said council owes it to citizens to address the article “and what has caused us to have a big percentage jump in the number of people who make over 100,000 a year in a relatively small municipality with modest means.” The discussion will be scheduled at an upcoming council workshop.

Meeting to clarify school budget issues T h e Ma p l e R i d g e - P i t t Meadows board of education will seek clarity in a finance meeting about concerns brought up by Trustee Kathie Ward that the board isn’t meeting its bylaws in approving the budget presented to them. Ward abstained from voting on the first reading of the budget at the June 9 board meeting, saying she wanted clarification on whether the draft budget met the board’s bylaws. The board was presented with a sixpage budget that meets the requirements of the Ministry of Education. Ward asked to have a

meeting with the secretarytreasurer Wayne Jefferson to get clarification to make sure the board’s bylaws were being followed and this was rescheduled to the finance committee meeting. “I felt like the issue was important enough that all trustees should be there and be part of the discussion,” said board chair Ken Clarkson on why the issue was being dealt with at Wednesday’s finance meeting. Ward said the board’s own bylaws require a more detailed budget. Tr u s t e e D a v e Re m p e l also abstained from voting for the first reading of

the bylaw on June 9. “I want more information about are we or are we not adhering to bylaws,” Rempel said, adding that abstention from the first reading will cause “no harm” as it needs final approval on June 30. Clarkson said he thinks the budget in the format it is in now is more understandable. “I’m hoping she’ll recognize we’ve worked on a budget that’s open and transparent,” Clarkson said.

Seniors dealing with fee hikes MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

C

are home residents in Ma p l e R i d g e’s t h re e facilities will be collectively paying about $440,000 more in fees annually after a change in the fee structure at the beginning of this year. Starting Jan. 1, all residents are charged 80 per cent of their after-tax income to a maximum of $2,932 per month and between 74 and 84 per cent of local care home residents saw an increase with the changes. The provincial government had predicted about 75 per cent of residents in care homes would see an increase in their fees and about 25 per cent would have their fees reduced. With the new fee structure, 270 care home residents are paying more in fees while 74 are paying less at the three seniors homes in Maple Ridge. At Maple Ridge Seniors Village, 84 per cent of residents had their fees increased and 12 per cent saw a reduction in fees. At Baillie House, 72 per cent of residents had an increase in their fees while 24 per cent of residents had a reduction. At Holyrood Manor, 72 per cent of residents saw an

The minimum rate comes to $894.40 per month, which is old age security and guaranteed income supplement of $1,169.47 minus $275. The new fee structure guarantees each senior is left with at least $275 per month and the maximum amount a senior can pay is $2,932 per month. Residential fees cover 24hour care with registered nurses, practical nurses and other support personnel, meals, basic linen and

laundry and recreation and activities on site. The fees don’t cover wheelchairs and walkers, optical services and dental care. They also don’t cover personal television, cable, personal hygiene and grooming and medications not covered by the Medical Services Plan. Rachel Tuttle, co-chair of the B.C. Health Coalition, an organization that lobbies for public health care, said her organization is getting negative feedback about the new fees, especially from seniors on fixed incomes. “We’re definitely hearing an outcry and concern about these fees,” Tuttle said.

tion is worried that with less disposable income, seniors will not be as active and will end up needing more acute care. “We feel that these types of changes will end up costing more,” Tuttle said. “Having a social life and socializing with peers really helps people’s health.” The new fee structure is expected to increase revenue by $12 million in the Fraser Health Authority, which the authority has stated will all be targeted toward residential care.

The Struthers House on Harris Road is undergoing repairs after being damaged by arson.

Tenant sought for Pitt house

Arson-ravaged heritage home owned by city gets rebuilt. MARIA RANTANEN mrantanen@mrtimes.com

T

he Struthers House on Harris Road in Pitt Meadows, which partially burned in March, is expected to be rebuilt by mid August. The city-owned building was being rented by the Katzie First Nation when it was targetted by an arsonist and partially burned. Assistant fire chief Brad

Perrie said the fire was deliberately set, but there have been no witnesses and no one has come forward with any leads. The fire started in an unsecured storage area under the ramp leading up to the building, where cardboard and other combustible material was being stored. The city had put aside money in its capital budget this year to do some

upgrades to the building, for example, replace the roof and doing electrical and plumbing work. These repairs are being done at the same time as the other repairs. A sprinkler system will also be installed in the house. “Because it is one of the heritage buildings in the community, it’s important that (it’s) maintained,” said Dean Rear, Pitt Meadows director of finance.

Pot dispensary on ‘radar screen’ COPS, From Page 3

S

uperintendent Dave Walsh said The Always G r ow i n g G re e n So c i e t y (TAGGS) medicinal marijuana dispensary that opened up in May as well as issues with legal marijuana growops are still on the police’s “radar screen.” “We’re continuing to work with the department of Justice, Health Canada, our RCMP legal services. It is an issue not just in Maple Ridge but across the Lower Mainland...and Canada,” said Walsh. Councillor Craig Speirs said the federal government “has got to examine this in a positive manner as a health issue to get it away from the criminal element as much as possible given the present climate.” Me d i c i n a l m a r i j u a n a dispensaries aren’t legally allowed to distribute marijuana under Health Canada medicinal marijuana access regulations. However, the dispensaries have opened up across the country and medicinal marijuana users say there’s a need for them to exist because not everyone is capable of growing their own marijuana and some users are unhappy with the quality of marijuana that can be bought through Health Canada. Walsh said Ridge Meadows

RCMP is trying to get bar owners to voluntarily participate in a type of Bar Watch program. Walsh said it’s not moving forward as fast as police would like but discussions are underway. Inspec-

Supt. Dave Walsh tor Derren Lench said there have been three meetings so far and employees from Haney Hotel and Roosters have signed up as co-chairs. He said they would be working on creating a voluntary code of conduct for bars. Speirs wanted to know if council could require bars to participate in the program as a condition of their licence. “I’d like to make it mandatory. I think it’s part of being a responsible merchant in a community,” he said. Brock McDonald, director of business licencing, permits and bylaws, said he would have to consult

the district’s lawyer on what could be required. Coun. Cheryl Ashlie, who has been pressing for reestablishment of a Bar Watch program, said she doesn’t want to see youth “caught in the crossfire,” beat up in the parking lot or over-served. Du r i n g a n u p d a t e o n negotiations around a new RCMP contract (the current one ends in 2012) Coun. Al Hogarth said he’d like to see improvements in the criminal justice system because he said municipalities can throw “gobs of money” at policing and have the best trained and equipped police force in the world but without reform to the criminal justice system “we’re just wasting our money.” “I think it’s imperative we have to start making a movement towards getting the system fixed because I basically think it’s broken,” said Hogarth. “I think we’ve become a bunch of namby pambies in this world honestly. We give too much to the poor criminal and forget about the people that have been perpetrated on. We have to give more back to the people who are hurt by these criminals and let them know that the system can be fixed and their pain and their suffering whatever it may be may not be healed but certainly will go a long way to being repaired,”

Banning hijab won’t help

A

qsa Parvez lived in Canada for five years. In 2002, at the age of 11, she arrived from Pakistan with her family. Five years later at the age of 16, she was dead, strangled, at the hands of her father and older brother, the very people who should have loved and protected her. There evidently wasn’t much love in the Parvez household in Mississauga. According to Aqsa’s friends she was very afraid of her father. She reported that more than once he threatened to kill her. Muhammed Parvez did just that on Dec. 10, 2007 when he ordered his son Waqas, 26, to strangle Aqsa. Waqas obeyed. Then the elder Parvez calmly called 911 and announced he’d killed his daughter. The two were arrested. What possible excuse could a father use for killing his own daughter? Muhammad was outraged he could no longer control his daughter. He ordered her to obey a 5 p.m. curfew, never talk to boys or go to the mall. He forbade her to listen to the rap and hip hop she loved. He told her not to dance. He knew she rebelled and did not always listen to him. He could not always make her wear the hijab which she put on in the morning, took off at school and then put back on before returning home. After the murder, when his wife asked him why he killed their

LYN COCKBURN

Straight Talk daughter, Muhammad said: “My community will say you have not been able to control your daughter. This is my insult. She is making me naked.” No wonder then that Aqsa had told friends her father hit her. She certainly tried to get away, sometimes living in a shelter, sometimes with friends. Sadly, on that fatal morning, her brother convinced her to go home. And there, at home, she died. Last week, in a Brampton court, a judge sentenced Aqsa’s father and brother to life imprisonment. Unfortunately, they will be eligible for parole in 18 years. And so, has this terrible tragedy reignited the controversy over the hijab? If we could just get rid of this inconvenient “symbol of the oppression of women” surely everything would be cool. Not a chance. The hijab is indeed a symbol, but that’s all it is. It is a little like the black eye worn by some women who are victims of spousal abuse. Take away the hijab, put makeup over the black eye and nothing has changed. The symbol is gone, but the violence remains.

The attitudes that allow some men in all cultures to believe it is their right to hit women in order to control them will still be there. The belief in some cultures that a woman with a will of her own brings dishonour upon the family will not disappear with the hijab. And lest we get a trifle too indignant over the horror of honour killings, we’d do well to note that according to Statistics Canada, violence against women in the home has steadily risen in the past few years. We as Canadians have little to be smug about. In fact, we are wasting time in Canada when we engage in petty arguments about the hijab. If we make Muslim women take off the headscarf, all we accomplish is placing the onus for good behaviour on the women, not on the patriarchal men where it belongs. Moreover those misogynist fathers and husbands are the very men who may not permit their wives and daughters to leave the house without the hijab. The irony is that on one side, there’s a group of men insisting Muslim women wear the hijab and on the other there’s a group of people insisting they take it off. Aqsa Parvez was a high school student at Applewood Heights Secondary School, but it was her father and brother who needed educating. Aqsa Parvez is buried in an unmarked grave at the Meadowvale Cemetery in Brampton.

“It’s really all about Darnell now.” Those were the words spoken by Doug De Patie, the father of Grant De Patie, a Maple Ridge gas station employee who was killed in a brutal gas-and-dash incident in 2005. Doug was giving his thoughts on the release from jail of Darnell Pratt, just five years after this gruesome crime. This is the sad state of the criminal justice system, in which somebody can commit a heinous act and still be out around the time of their 21st birthday. It was maddening that Pratt, 16 at the time, received a paltry nineyear sentence for dragging De Patie for seven kilometres under a stolen car. It was even worse when, in April 2007, the B.C. Court of Appeal reduced his manslaughter sentence to seven years. All because the sentencing judge didn’t give more attention to the fact that Pratt was Aboriginal, was raised by a single mother addicted to meth and had been in and out of government care since he was 12. Boo hoo. Now we’re even angrier because Pratt only lasted one day out of jail before violating the conditions of his release. This punk couldn’t even manage to show up at his halfway house. Police found him wandering the streets of Kamloops. Now he’s back in jail, and we say the National Parole Board should make him serve out the rest of his sentence. If he can’t even abide by basic release conditions after one day, then send him back to jail. We were prepared to give Pratt more of a chance. This after hearing the words of Doug. When contacted by The TIMES last week, Doug did not have words of rage for his son’s killer. Instead, he spoke of forgiveness and hope. “My hopes are that (Darnell Pratt) will be successful,” said Doug. “Grant gave his life preventing Darnell from committing that crime...In light of that I hope the best for him. I hope he does well for himself and becomes a member of our community. I don’t want a failure for him.” Yes, it’s really all up to Pratt to turn his life around. Doug hopes he gets some counselling and treatment for his addictions. We hope so too, for him, for De Patie’s family and for the rest of our society. But now that Pratt has already screwed up, can our society feel safe if he’s given a third chance?

System has ‘twisted priorities’ Cheap thrills

Editor:

Re: Grant De Patie’s killer released, TIMES, June 18 That this boy has been released is very telling about the twisted priorities of our justice system. Here we have someone who robbed a gas station and dragged a person to his death — I can’t think of a more violent, horrible and senseless crime committed for a few dollars of gas. Never mind that Pratt was 16 at the time. I knew not to kill people when I was that age — I was old enough to know right from wrong. I knew it then, I know it now. If Pratt didn’t know it then, he doesn’t know it now, and most likely never will. To rely on post-release drug and alcohol rehab is a big, big crap shoot. For instance, the statistics on recovery from alcoholism are as follows: 10 per cent will find their way into a program, and in turn 10 per cent of those people will actually recover successfully and stay in the program. Folks, that’s a slim one-percent probability of success. Another case in point is the release of the Halu Sushi killer. It is my opinion that the courts couldn’t admit to having made a mistake with him the first time, so now they’re going to make a mistake with him again. It’s only a matter of time (by dint of the statistics I described above) that he will hurt take out his uncontrollable resentment and anger on other innocent citizens. Gosh, I pray I’m wrong. Our safety and wellbeing in this country is constantly placed second in importance to this notion our judges have that they must uphold the merits of socalled rehabilitation. Patricia Russell Maple Ridge

the board, local politicians and citizens that prevented it from happening. Fraser Health is testing the waters and unless the people and their elected officials respond, the decision will be made and then it is too late. Now is the time to contact Fraser Health and our MLAs to let them know we are opposed to reducing services at RMH. Thank you to Councillor Craig Speirs, who spoke immediately and with passion in opposition to this proposed action, and to MLA Michael Sather, who is helping people find a way to express their opposition. If pediatrics and obstetrics go, other services will follow. With the growing number of young families in our community it is not the time to move these vital services out of Maple Ridge.

Billboard bad Editor:

Re: Taxpayers federation calls MP Randy Kamp a “pension hog,” TIMES, June 18 I was on the verge of tears on the weekend as I read about how hard MP Randy Kamp works for his constit-

uents. M r. K a m p m a k e s a n annual salary of $157,738. In addition, he is a parliamentary secretary, a position that comes with an allowance of $15,834. He also has a number of other perks that most Canadians would love to have and somehow we are supposed to be impressed that Mr. Kamp works hard. On the very day that MPs agreed to let the Auditor General look into Parliament’s spending and do a spot check on MPs’ expense claims, I received yet another of Randy’s flyers. Now I’m sure that Mr. Kamp is a very intelligent fellow so I must conclude that he either doesn’t care how much of our money he spends promoting himself or he likes to poke a stick in the eyes of the electorate. Seriously, how vain must a man be to have a billboard promoting himself on the Lougheed Highway when there is no election in sight? Would you not think he would be embarrassed to spend our money on a billboard when our national debt is out of control? Please, Mr. Kamp, do the right thing, take the billboard down and stop the flyers. Bill Elder Maple Ridge

JESSICA KERR editorial@mrtimes.com

I

t was nearing the end of 2008 when Bobbie McCabe decided she needed to make a change. The Lower Mainland resident needed to lose some weight. She’d done it in the past but always gained it back. “I can lose weight, but keeping it off is another thing,” she says. She set a start date of Jan. 1, 2009. It was right before Christmas and the mother and grandmother decided she wanted to have fun over the holidays “and pay for it afterwards,” she says with a smile. “Probably a few months before that I knew it was time to get back on the wagon.” Looking for a way to break the cycle of losing and gaining weight, McCabe turned to the local TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly) chapter. TOPS is an international, non-profit and non-commercial network of weightloss support groups. Its mission is simple - to support members as they take off and keep off pounds sensibly. TOPS was founded in 1948 by Esther Manz, a Milwaukee homemaker, to assist overweight and obese people lose weight by setting up a support system. Since then, the organization has spread across North America and internationally. In 2008, TOPS members lost a combined 431 tons. The organization now boasts about 170,000 members in nearly 10,000 chapters in the United States, Canada and throughout the world. Through weekly TOPS meetings for more than a year, McCabe has not only lost weight but has also kept it off. New members are required to set a weight loss goal with their doctor. The goal is kept in mind at the weekly private weigh-ins, which precede the meetings.

Health for the Whole Family

Upcoming events at Westgate Wellness Centre At the meetings, members have the chance to vent about their weekly struggles with weight loss and share their successes as well as nutrition and exercise tips. The meetings highlight the need to eat sensibly and incorporate exercise to aid in weight loss. “It’s a really good support for people who have problems with food,” says member Michelle Rice. Rice is in her second tour of duty with TOPS. She first joined when her children were young. She lost the weight but quit going to

meetings and gained it all back. “I quit and that was the worst thing I’ve ever done,” she says. The group is open to people of all ages looking to lose weight. Membership costs $30 annually, which is paid to the TOPS head office, plus an additional $5-per month charge, which goes to the local chapter. T h o s e i n t e re s t e d c a n attend an initial meeting to check things out. ◗ For more information about TOPS, or to find a local chapter, visit www.tops.org.

Our very successful and effective formula is based on ionic and homeopathic sciences and as such does not fit the traditional paradigm of larger RDA elemental values. Products with larger elemental values do no typically translate to larger absorption rates. Cellular up-take is what really counts. With nano-particle ionic calcium and magnesium the problems of too much, unused, unabsorbed and wasted calcim and magnesium are eliminated. Just because we ingest a large quantity of minerals into our bodies does not mean it gets absorbed or utilized. It should be remembered that for any minerals to be absorbed into the cell, they must be small enough and in an ionic form to be transported through ion channels located in the cell membrane. Also, and importantly, small electrically charged mineral ions are absorbed through the sublingual and mucous membranes of the mouth, thus bypassing the digestive system.

What are the Roles of Calcium

• provides material for our bones and teeth. • serves in nerve transmission, muscular contraction and relaxation, blood clotting, buffering blood ph and more.

Revolutionary Probiotic Gum Makes your Mouth a Healthier Place Promises Renowned Microbiologist We have all heard that the eyes are the windows of the soul. Now a probiotic research scientist from New Zealand is telling us that our mouths are the front door to a lifetime of good health.

BLIS, which stands for Bacteriocin-Like-InhibitorySubstanceis an advanced oral probiotic. BLIS K12 is a naturally occurring component of the S. salivarius probiotic strain.

“Probiotics are friendly, health-promoting bacteria,” says Professor John Tagg, a worldrenowned microbiologist at the University of Otago in New Zealand. “Everyone knows about the importance of probiotics for the digestive tract. But for good oral health and overall immunity, we also need oral probiotics that are specific to our mouths.

“My published research studies show that BLIS K12 controlsthe undesirable and diseasecausing bacteria that cause bad breath, strep throat, thrush, and ear and upper respiratory infections” explains Professor Tagg.

”He should know! When Professor Tagg was aboy of 12, he suffered from a strep throat infection that led to an attack of rheumatic fever,a serious condition that can cause permanent heart damage. Consequently, he was on antibiotic drugs for 10 long years. This personal experience inspired him to devote his life to finding friendly probiotic bacteria that prevent strep throat and other infections that enter through the mouth. After many, many years of dedicated research, he discovered BLIS!

“BLIS K12 probiotic bacteria also promote general oral health and help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.” Professor Tagg’s BLIS K12 probiotic is now available in Canada as CulturedCare Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12. It is made in Canada by Prairie Naturals, an established, family-owned nutritional supplement company in BC. “Gum is an ideal way to `seed` BLIS K12 probiotic throughout the mouth and throat where it will begin to colonize and grow. Chewing just one piece of Cultured Care Probiotic Gum daily provides protection for teeth,

gums, throat and ears,” says Professor Tagg. Made with proprietary cold-pressed technology, Cultured Care Probiotic Gum with BLIS K12contains the therapeutic dosage determined by Professor Tagg`s research. Its potency and purity are confirmed through independent testing in government licensed laboratories in Canada,New Zealand and the US. “May the BLIS be with you!” This has become the mantra of the professor who discovered the powerful effects of BLIS K12 - a revolutionary probiotic.

Safe trucker earns honour

Re-newed. Re-built. Re-designed. Re-designed. Re-newed. Re-launched.

M

aple Ridge trucker John Beeler, a veteran driver of 29 accident-free years with Canadian Freightways, has received the 2010 Driver of the Year award at the B.C. Trucking Association annual Management Conference in Victoria. Beeler won the honour for his “outstanding safety record as a commercial truck driver,” said a news release. “During his long career, Beeler pestered numberless mechanics about every aspect of his vehicles, so that he could identify problems himself and have them put to rights,” the release said. “His attention to detail has contributed to over 3.75 million kilometres on the road without a preventable accident or injury.” The Driver of the Year award is sponsored annually by BCTA and Volvo Trucks Canada to recognize and promote safe driving among professional drivers. In addition to excellent driving records, award winners have often distinguished themselves through service to their communities and acts of bravery. According to Paul Landry, BCTA president and CEO, “John Beeler represents the best of the best on the road today, and we’re very proud of his accomplishment. Like many of his colleagues, he quietly and tirelessly, day in and day out, helps to transport consumer goods and other necessary freight safely and efficiently throughout the province.” Darshan Kailly, president and CEO of Canadian Freightways, commends Beeler for providing leadership outside his regular driving duties. “John Beeler’s positive attitude, patience, courtesy and thoroughness are well known. He is a leader in maintaining the high standards that Canadian Freightways has set for its fleets. While training new drivers or assessing equipment, John provides insights that help us to make continuous improvements. We’re delighted that he won this prestigious award - he deserves it.”

Whonnock welcomes triathletes

Mitch Thompson/TIMES

(Above) Athletes rush to take off their wetsuits as they run for their bikes, the second leg of the race, during the Iron Mountain Triathlon at Whonnock Lake on Sunday. The race consisted of a 1.5-kilometre swim, a 40-kilometre bike ride and a 10-kilometre run. Mitch Thompson/TIMES

(Right) Clement Lim, a 30-year-old from Coquitlam, is the first out of the water in Sunday’s Iron Mountain Triathlon sprint at Whonnock Lake. The sprint features the same three segments as the full, Olympic-length triathlon (swimming, biking, running) however the distances for each are shorter.

Lowell Rockliffe raises his hand in celebration as he crosses the finish line first in Sunday’s Iron Mountain Triathlon at Whonnock Lake. Rockliffe, a 21-year-old from Victoria, finished the race with a time of two hours and 20 minutes. (Below) Many triathletes jockey and jostle for position during the start of the swimming leg of the Iron Mountain Sprint Triathlon. Despite a shorter distance, competition is still fierce. Olympic-length triathlon winner Lowell Rockliffe said the swim portion can be tough with that many feet and elbows moving rapidly in close proximity.

Mitch Thompson/TIMES

Carlos Lesser, a 20-year-old from Cancun, is the first to finish the swimming leg of the Iron Mountain Triathlon. Lesser swam the 1.5-kilometre distance with a time of approximately 24:50.

MINOR LACROSSE ASSOCATION

2010/2011

FIELD LACROSSE REGISTRATION

Campbell’s got the right attitude

The Indiana Hoosiers Department of Athletics announced its year-end awards on June 17 and water polo player and Maple Ridge native Kelsey Campbell has been awarded the 2010 Aline Robinson Mental Attitude Award winner which honours a female student-athlete for athletics and leadership skills and mental attitude. Campbell, a junior, started all 32 games for IU water polo during the 2010 season, recording 30 goals, 21 assists and 34 steals to help lead the Hoosiers to a 21-11 overall record. The team earned a No. 12 ranking in the final CWPA Varsity Top 20 Poll after a runner-up finish at the CWPA Eastern Championship. Campbell finished the season with seven multi-goal performances, including six markers during a three game stretch at the

Fluid Five. She collected the April 26 Western Division Defensive Player of the Week award after grabbing a career-high eight steals in an 11-1 win over Mercyhurst at the CWPA Western Championship. For her career, she has totals of 99 goals, 77 assists and 94 steals. She was also selected to the ESPN The Magazine Academic AllDistrict 5 First Team, as well as the Spring Academic All-Big Ten Team. Campbell is a Hutton Honour College member and student in the Kelley School of Business, who maintains a 3.89 GPA. Campbell was also chosen for the Academic All-Big Ten selection, which means she was a letterwinner and had a career grade-point average of 3.9 or better. In all there were 14 CWPA student-athletes who received the honour.

Burrards succumb to Coquitlam Adanacs The Maple Ridge Burrards lost to the Coquitlam Adanacs 13-9 at the home game on Sunday night at Planet Ice despite taking a 3-0 lead within the first few minutes. That was the only lead the Burrards would hold and by

the end of the first period they were down 5-4. The second period ended with Coquitlam leading 9-6 with Maple Ridge only scoring twice. Coquitlam continued to dominate in the third period and Maple Ridge had

to concede the victory. Joel Dalgarno and Peter Tellis both scored three goals for the Burrards, and Curtis Dickson registered two. The Burrards play their last league game on Friday night in Burnaby.
