Expropriation

Road project driving through bunny barn by Amy Steele asteele@mrtimes.com

J

im Bentley, 73, has been raising rabbits on his property on 127 Avenue in Maple Ridge for 31 years and he currently has 125 New Zealand whites and satin rabbits in a barn on his farm. On a recent summer day Bentley took The TIMES on a tour of the barn, which is full of white and black rabbits of all sizes. Bentley points out some tiny pink babies that were born that day. It’s evident that Bentley adores his rabbits. However, he is wondering what will happen to them because part of his property is being expropriated by the District of Maple Ridge to make way for the realignment of the Abernethy Connector. “I have the best in the west,” said Bentley of his rabbits. “I got hooked on this. It’s something I like and I enjoy. It’s just like how some people like dogs, horses, cats. I like rabbits.”

Bentley is unimpressed by his dealings with the district. “It’s how they’ve gone about it. It’s how they’ve treated me,” said Bentley. “I don’t know what’s going to happen here. It’s my livelihood.” Bentley shows rabbits and sells them for breeding and pet stock. He has shipped rabbits all the way up to Alaska. “I never expected I would have to go through something like this at my age.... I’ve gone through hell and high water,” he said of the expropriation process. Bentley is also upset that his pony Sally and horse TJ will lose part of their pasture in the expropriation. “They are not going to have as much pasture as they do now because the roadway is going to take quite a bit of my pasture,” he said, adding he wants compensation for the loss of some of his pasture and the rabbit barn on top of what he will be paid for the expropriated land.

Police trying to ID body in shallow grave by Amy Steele asteele@mrtimes.com

P

o l i c e exe c u t i n g a search warrant on a suspected grow-op at a home in Whonnock Thursday made a gruesome discovery — a shallow grave with a human body part sticking out of it. The shallow grave was found at a property in the 28000 block of 112 Avenue. Police also found 1,000 marijuana plants inside the residence. Ridge Meadows RCMP Superintendent Dave Walsh said a 55-year-old man, who was inside the home at the time of the grow-op bust, has been arrested and will face production of a controlled substance charges. “At this point in time he is being held in relation to the location of the body on the property as well,” said Walsh. Walsh said a police dog located the shallow grave. “At that point the search was ceased and the scene was treated as a potential homicide scene so at this point in time we have our Integrated Forensic Identification Section on scene

Supt. Dave Walsh in front of crime scene on Friday. Glenn Baglo/Canwest News processing the site. We are uncertain at this time whether the person in the grave is male or female. We have yet to begin unearth(ing) the grave at this point in time,” said Walsh. “We found a part of a human body sticking out of the ground and we believe the rest of the body to still

be present there but we have yet to proceed further. We’re going to have a very thorough and methodical search done by our forensic identification section. They’ll bring in some people with some expertise in unearthing bodies.” Walsh said the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team

is involved in the investigation along with the Ridge Meadows RCMP Major Crime Section. Walsh said police believe the 55-year-old man they arrested was the only person who lived in the house. Walsh said he’ll make his first court appearance on Monday

on the drug charge. Walsh couldn’t comment on how long the body may have been in the shallow grave. Walsh said police have dealt with 18 incidents in the last 8 to 9 months “involving marijuana grow operations where there’s some degree of violence involved.”

A drunken man fell off a boat at the Pitt Meadows Marina into the water and was injured by a spinning propeller over the weekend. The incident occurred at 9:15 p.m. at the marina located at 14100 Reichenbach Road. The man suffered a laceration to his leg and had to be taken to Ridge Meadows Hospital. When police arrived they noticed the man appeared to be impaired and asked him for a breath sample but he refused. Police are recommending he be charged with impaired operation of a motor vessel and failing to provide a breath sample. “With the summer boating season just starting up, Ridge Meadows RCMP want to remind all boat operators that they are under the same rules that apply to all vehicle drivers. Do not drink and then operate a boat, the same way you would not consume alcohol, and then drive your car. Let’s enjoy the water in a safe manner,” said Superintendent Dave Walsh.

Upgraded firehall finished T

he Maple Ridge fire department unveiled its new firehall No. 1 on Friday with a ceremonial fire hose uncoupling by those involved in the project. Firefighters also pushed a bright red, heritage fire truck inside the new building “to recognize the old into the new,” said Fire Chief Peter Grootendorst. The project included renovations to the old building and an addition. The firehall is expected to achieve at least a silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standard with the Canada Green Building Council. “This is an exciting day,” said Mayor Ernie Daykin. “I think it’s incumbent upon the district of Maple Ridge to lead by example and we’ve done that and we’ve built a building that I think we can all be very proud of.” Chief administrative officer Jim Rule described the building as “a beautiful facility, state of the art.” At the ceremony, 74-year-old Don Harris, a former volunteer firefighter, recalled how his father was one of the citizens who started the volunteer fire department in 1946. “There was a disaster of two babies (dying) in a fire,” said Harris. “That’s what started the fire department.” Harris recalled the first call he ever went on in relation to a fire - a barn fire at the Laity farm that took 27 hours to tackle. The new firehall No. 1 was designed to post-disaster standards after an earthquake and would be used as a post-disaster emergency operations centre. Environmental features in

“You know what I ask in life? People treat me fair but I feel they’re not. That’s what upsets me,” he said. “I just wish they would go away and leave me alone.” Ron Riach, property and risk manager for the District of Maple Ridge, said Bentley’s rabbit barn sits on the part of Bentley’s property the district has expropriated and the other barn for his horses is partially on the property the district has expropriated. Therefore, both will have to be moved or demolished. Riach said the district has expropriated about half an acre of Bentley’s land in order to straighten out the Abernethy Connector. He said the district hired an appraiser to come up with a price for the expropriated land, which would have included compensation for the barns. “In the expropriation process the property owner has a year after he’s received his compensation payment to apply to the courts if he thinks he should be paid more so he has that option available to him,” said Riach. Riach said the district studied other alternatives to expropriating Bentley’s land but nothing else was feasible to allow an effective realignment of the road.

“Expropriation is not an easy process and it’s not something we go into lightly. It has to be a pretty important issue for us to take these steps and council felt this was important,” said Riach. “There were lots of attempts to work something out without going to expropriation but unfortunately it didn’t work out.” Bentley’s lawyer Bruce Melville said Bentley may choose to go to court over the issue. “I’m certainly confident in saying Jim believes he’s entitled to a lot more compensation than he’s been paid. I think what he’s been paid overlooks

a considerable number of items of potential compensation, specifically relating to the cost to reconfigure his property,” said Melville. Melville pointed out the expropriated land that the road will be built on will cut his property into two sections. “There’s no building area left for agricultural buildings,” said Melville. “Within the setbacks that are prescribed by the zoning bylaw there’s no space left to put up agricultural buildings.” Melville said even if Bentley got a variance to allow him to build new barns “there may be practical difficulties in trying to

etation that requires less water consumption. Greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced by 67 per cent in the new building next year compared to 2007. In 2007 the building emitted 49 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent but is expected to emit 16 tonnes in 2011.

shoehorn a building into the space that remains.” Bentley’s entire property was about two acres prior to the expropriation. “There’s no issue here with Maple Ridge having the legal power to take (the land). They have the right to use the expropriation legislation and Jim is entitled to compensation for whatever he’s lost. Unfortunately there’s a lot of emotion caught up with one’s personal property. This is Jim’s residence and his whole life. He’s retired and his farm is his whole life and it’s very upsetting to somebody in that situation,” said Melville.

Parent challenges waiver

Parents can’t sign away right to sue. by Maria Rantanen mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A 2009 B.C. Supreme Court decision states that waivers signed by parents are “useless” and that parents can’t sign away the right of their children to sue. Terri Cohen, a lawyer with Harris & Company, wrote in the B.C. School Trustees’ Association publication Education Leader about a case where a boy broke his arm at a martial arts school. His mother had signed a waiver when the boy was 12, but she told the court she had not read it carefully and did not intend to waive her son’s right to sue the martial arts centre. The judge ruled that the son, now an adult, has a right to commence legal proceedings. But a waiver is the only instrument the school district has to indicate to parents

there’s a potential risk in the activity a students is taking part in, said SD42 secretarytreasurer Wayne Jefferson. “Parents have some knowledge the student is going on a field trip and there’s a danger,” Jefferson said about the necessity of a waiver. Parents have to make the decision based on information given in the waiver whether or not they want their child to participate in an activity. That’s why the school district has safety rules, for example, how many chaperones have to be on a school trip. Signing a waiver for a school field trip, however, doesn’t mean that parents can’t sue if they think the school district was negligent, and, if a parent sues, the courts will ultimately decide the issue, Jefferson added. Cohen suggests in the article it would be “prudent” for school officials to check district policies before requiring parents to sign waivers on behalf of their children. With files from Canwest News

SD42 keeps eyes on kids There are more than 100 video surveillance cameras in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows schools. by Janet Steffenhagen editorial@mrtimes.com

Hundreds of surveillance cameras monitor students at at least 50 Metro Vancouver schools, with some sprawling buildings in New Westminster, Coquitlam and Maple Ridge having as many as two dozen each. Although B.C.’s privacy czar insists video cameras should only be used in schools as a last resort, their installation has not been particularly contentious and hasn’t generated the polarized debate that was triggered when cameras were set up in downtown Vancouver for Winter Olympics security. “We appreciate that there are problems around vandalism and other issues that cameras can sometimes address,” said Jim Burrows, investigations manager for the B.C. Privacy Commissioner’s Office. “[But] we would prefer they’re only used in extreme circumstances.” Nevertheless, only three Metro school districts – Vancouver, Richmond and North Vancouver – are completely free of surveillance cameras (apart from those that are installed temporarily as part of a police investigation). But Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, New Westminster, Surrey and West Vancouver have surveillance cameras in many of their high schools and some have them in certain elementary schools as well. The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district has 81 interior cameras and 20 exterior cameras at its high schools and eight at elementary schools. Surrey, the province’s largest school district,

has a total of 172 inside cameras and 108 outside cameras – at 11 of 100 elementary schools and 16 of 19 secondary schools. SD42 trustee Kathie Ward, who is chair of the school district’s anti-vandalism committee, said outside cameras aren’t always helpful in catching vandals, because many obscure their faces. But they are useful in identifying problem areas so that staff can figure out ways of discouraging them from trespassing on school property after hours. “We believe we have a right to protect our building,” Ward said. “Is it infringing on human rights? I don’t know. I guess it’s a fine line.” The appearance of cameras in schools had gone relatively unnoticed until last month, when Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid amended a law to require boards of education to seek approval in future from school planning councils before installing cameras. She said she was responding to requests from parents who wanted to be consulted about such decisions, but it was not clear where those requests originated. “This amendment gives parents and the entire school community a voice on school safety issues,” she said in a statement response to Vancouver Sun questions, noting that almost half of B.C.’s 60 school districts use surveillance cameras. “There is an overwhelmingly positive response from those districts regarding the value of video surveillance in deterring damage and vandalism and improving decorum in public areas,” she added. The B.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils said it does not have a policy on video surveillance. One affiliated parent organization protested the changes, saying the new law provides “tacit approval and encouragement” from government to install more video cameras in schools.

up being out in the field all the time. You give up being that close to the action. There is nothing quite like being at a contentious public hearing or sitting close to an accused as a verdict is read out in a courtroom. I still get out to cover some events to stay sharp, but it’s never enough. Going through all those old newspapers and photographs, I came up with a list things I’ve learned on this job. ◗ Sometimes the smallest stories are the most satisfying. I wrote a story once after a woman called about the theft of an urn containing a family member’s ashes. She just wanted the ashes back, no questions asked. The day after the story was printed, the urn containing the ashes appeared at the end of the family’s driveway. I couldn’t stop smiling the rest of the day. ◗ Pe o p l e i n t h i s community may live i n “ M a p l e R i d g e, ” but for some, it’s the neighbourhood that comes first. Whether it’s Ruskin, Hammond or Webster’s Corners, some readers are dedicated to the areas they live in. ◗ It’s the most innocuous stories that make people the angriest. It never fails. We ran a photo of a dog drinking from a public fountain on a hot summer day and the letters back and forth between proand anti-dog people lasted for months. And don’t get me started on sports parents wanting to know who submitted the game report and how that person has it in for little Jimmy. ◗ Some people are full of themselves. OK, you could say the same thing about newspaper editors, but I’ve seen some pretty pompous behaviour. I remember one mayor from years ago who announced he was no longer speaking to the media. He didn’t specify why, just that we shouldn’t bother calling him. After a few months, when he real-

ized that we actually preferred not talking to him, he deigned to allow us to speak to him. There was also the case of the RCMP inspector who was going to shut us out because of our use of the word “cop.” He didn’t like it, but as I told him, if the term was good enough for the Cops for Cancer campaign, it was good enough for the newspaper. ◗ No matter how sad the story, you can always help people. The odd person calls the media scum for calling up family of people who have died. They can’t imagine how we can intrude on people after a loved one has been killed in a car crash or murdered. I can assure you it’s not a decision we take lightly. Nobody wants to do it, but you’d be surprised how grateful some people are that they are offered a chance to let the public know more about their loved one. Or they at least appreciate the chance to thank people who have supported them in their time of grief. ◗ That you meet a lot of fascinating people in this business. (And not just the great reporters.) There’s a lot of people in this town doing some amazing things. Kathryn Baird and James Thorhaug one day decided this town needed its own free jazz and blues festival. So they put one on. Lorraine Bates and Tom Cameron were fed up with the sad state of the Christmas Hamper campaign. So they transformed it into the success it is today. ◗ And finally, the last thing I’ve realized about this job is that as much joy as it has given me, it can also break my heart. Jessica Russell. Jim Burton. Colleen Findlay. Angela Steer. Karen Beck. Grant De Patie. These people were all murdered in our community. Some of them left children behind; others never had a chance to have their own kids. None of them I will ever forget.

Editor: Re: Hands off our hospital, says crowd, TIMES, June 25 It was very heartening to see so many citizen’s turn out to this important forum on our heath care services in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. That’s exactly the point I have been stressing over the past months about democracy, i.e. people power. You can make the difference. But, unless we the citizens stand up for our services, they will be diminished and taken away from our communities. Look what’s happening to our schools and education system. And for those absentee politicians who did not show up at this critical health care forum, shame on you. You profess to care about our community, yet you don’t attend this? Well, I guess they weren’t any developer types in attendance to perk your interests. You know who I’m talking about; the ones who fund your election campaigns. Citizens of Maple Ridge who attended this meeting, I’m immensely proud of you for standing up and having your voices heard. Yes to people power, and shame on the local politicians who did not attend.

Don’t fear change with hospital Editor Re: Hands off our hospital, TIMES, June 25 A lot of the protests against changes in the hospital seem to focus on one thing — do not change. Changes are always necessary to make improvements. Health care has changed dramatically in recent years. It used to be your family doctor would get “a feel” for what ails a person and prescribe something. Things are no longer that simple, thank goodness. Research has come up with a lot of very technical ways to better determine illness. The specialized equipment requires specialized personal. Many people (including myself) would not be alive today without the great advancements that are almost daily being discovered. If my child is sick, I would much rather go to Burnaby or even the other side of the country, if there was a better and more specialized cure available. While it is nice to have everything here in a local hospital, I would rather have the best care and be inconvenienced by having to

go a few miles further. I would only assume those protestors do not have the same values. They do not mind travelling to a local protest, but would not want to be forced to take their children to a different city for better care. Dan Banov Maple Ridge

School driver mad

Editor: First of all, as a Maple Ridge parent who has had to drop/pick up my child for the past five years at my school on Kanaka Way, I understand the frustration that you all feel, as the three local schools in my area have made it very difficult for parents to find parking, to pick up and drop off based upon making it safer for our kids. As one of the responsible parents, I purposely arrive at my child’s school early enough when there is still plenty of parking, which enables me to park safely and be in an ideal location to pick up my son. I understand that a lot of parents do not have the same time frame I do and often arrive late. Parents, could you not park farther away and walk to pick up your children? If

they are older children, could you not arrive a little later and have them wait in a safe spot where there are lots of other parents? If they are very young, could you not have them wait with a mom or dad you know or even in the office? I have witnessed parents drop their children off in the middle of Kanaka Way and have the children walk to the school. I have witnessed children walking in between cars that are backing up just as the parents have dropped them off in the middle of the street. I was parked on the north side of Kanaka Way to pick up my son...when I witnessed a mom going east on Kanaka Way make a complete illegal U-turn just past the cross walk, then pull in front of me and park illegally. There were other parents that witnessed this and just shook their heads in amazement. I did approach the driver to question her on the legalities of what she did had just done and I was greeted with hostility and anger even though I was trying in vain to remind her to keep our children safe. I did write down the license number and report it to the school and well as the RCMP.

Westview Secondary School

Parents, enough is enough. Is it really worth breaking the law so that you can get an ideal spot to pick up your child and, in turn, endanger other drivers and frustrate the parents that do take the time to park and drive in a safe manner? Please parents, give your heads a shake and realize the example you are setting to school staff

and to your children. If our children acted like this they would get reprimanded and most likely would involve a consequence. Where are the consequences for parents that openly break the law and endanger our children in school zones and endanger other drivers? Barbara Telford Maple Ridge

B.C. team calls

The profile of girls lacrosse has risen thanks to the proliferation of teams and national level tournaments. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Two Seahorse swimmers named to B.C. team

Seahorse swimmers Kaelen Osmond and Jordan Morford, both 14, have been selected to represent the Fraser Valley in the B.C. Summer Games to be held in Langley from July 22 to 25. They are two of only 21 swimmers selected for the Fraser Valley Zone. Osmond and Morford were selected based on swimming performance this past year. Morford’s specialty is backstroke, while Osmond’s specialty is freestyle. Firstyear head coach Jonathan Gilman was thrilled with the selection. “The two boys will have a great time at one of the most exciting sporting events in the province for developing champions of tomorrow,” he said.

Goaltender Regan Eaton has stamped her ticket to the Canadian female lacrosse championships in Whitby, Ont. Her Ridge Meadows Burrards teammate and captain, Ellen Harrison, is on standby. Eaton made Team B.C.’s female bantam lacrosse team roster from a tryout held June 11-13 in Port Moody. Of the more than 50 players who travelled from as far away as Kamloops and Vancouver Island to audition for the provincial team, Eaton was among 20 players – 18 runners and two goaltenders – who made the cut. This year marks her second trip to the national tournament. She played for Team B.C.’s bantams last year in Whitby, where they placed second. “I’m excited,” she said, “because you get to meet different teams from different areas, and see how they play.” B.C. will compete against host Ontario, Alberta, Iroquois, and New Brunswick at the Canadian championships. Harrison is on the outside looking in – for now. She is the team’s lone first alternate, meaning that if a player can’t make the trip due to any one of a variety of reasons, she’ll slide into the lineup. “I’ll only be going if someone can’t afford it or if someone gets hurt,” Harrison said. “I don’t really want to see anyone get hurt...” The pair of 14-year-olds

Goaltender Regan Eaton (foreground) made the Team B.C. female bantam lacrosse team while runner Ellen Harrison is the provincial squad’s lone first alternate. Both girls play for the Ridge Meadows Burrards. joined their Ridge Meadows teammates Autumn Meredith and Sierra LaForge in Port Moody, where the 50-plus players were divided into three teams, who played against each other with evaluators looking on. During the tryouts, Harrison was mixed in with teammates she didn’t know. “It was different,” Harrison said. “When you are playing on your normal team, you know where everyone is running and you know how they play. On these teams, all these players are good, and they all know what they are doing, so you were able to trust them enough to play with them.” Trying to catch the attention of B.C.’s brass didn’t lend to any individual play in Harrison’s case. “Just play your game, and hope to get noticed,” she said, speaking about her playing philosophy during the tryout. “I didn’t do anything specific.”

Eaton may have felt extra pressure, vying for one of only two goaltender spots available on the team. She had support from her dad Wes, who will serve as an assistant coach with Team B.C. in Whitby. The elder Eaton, who also coaches his daughter’s and Harrison’s club team from Ridge Meadows, said girls lacrosse continues to evolve, thanks to its growing stable of multi-talented athletes. “We get a cross-section of girls from different sports,” he said. “We have lots of hockey players and soccer players.” The key to the sport’s growth is self promotion, Wes Eaton added. “One of the reasons we try to get ourselves in the paper once in the while is to promote [girls lacrosse],” he said. “We’ve been quite successful. We had a large [provincial bantam] team this year – 20 players – and next year we hope to have two teams for sure, in midget.”

Girls’ lacrosse is also growing in popularity thanks to the proliferation of tournaments and the tantalizing prospect of playing for your province at a national level, something that has only been available to female players for the past two years. “That’s another good promotion,” Wes Eaton said. “Just like the boys, they get to go back east to play in the nationals.” Wes Eaton hopes to see the game grow to a point where each division will include tiers, much like boys lacrosse. “If we have, like, tier one and tier 2, the game will expand where you’ll even have better lacrosse and even more to play for,” he said. “Hopefully we can double our numbers.” Female box lacrosse is full contact, which doesn’t bother Harrison one iota. “I love it,” Harrison said, alluding to lacrosse’s physicality. “I think my older

brother played lacrosse, so I guess I kind of did what he did.” Regan Eaton, who moved into the goal-crease after starting out as a runner, said the teams dictate just how rough the games get. “Some games will get really physical, and other games are really ‘chilaxed’,” she said. In a game that was anything but “chilaxed” Eaton, Harrison and the Burrards downed New Westminster 1 on Monday, in an intense opening game of their bestof-three playoff series. The teams met again on Thursday and the Ridge Meadows bantam girls won their second playoff game against New West 1 with a come from behind 4-1 win ensuring that they advance to the provincial championships in Port Moody in July. Goals were scored by LaForge with two, Meredith and Megan Michaud with one goal apiece.
