Garbage incinerator

MR council sets fire to to region’s proposal

MUSIC ❚ Caribbean Colours

by Amy Steele asteele@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge council is taking a stand against any “mass burn” incinerators being built to deal with Metro Vancouver’s burgeoning garbage problem. Metro Vancouver is seeking feedback on its draft solid waste management plan, which includes a target of 70 per cent waste diversion by 2015. Part of the plan includes waste-to-energy facilities, which could also include anaerobic digestion and gasification technologies as well as incinerators, to deal with 500,000 tonnes of garbage per year. “There’s no magic to it. They do pollute. They pollute a lot,” said Councillor Craig Speirs. “If we did one in this region it would be the largest single point source of pollution in the region.” Speirs said Europe, which relies heavily on incinerators, has higher cancer rates and more pollution. “We don’t have to go down that road, we really don’t. We have options that aren’t available to Europe,” he said. Speirs said the landfill in Cache Creek is a “very effective way of encapsulating garbage which can be dealt with later if we find a way of doing that or just to keep a lot of those very toxic chemicals that results from burning out of the air.” Speirs expressed concern that building incinerators would lead to burning material that could be diverting from the waste stream. “It doesn’t matter if it’s private or a government-produced facility. You have to feed the beast. That’s just the way it works,” he said. Speirs said he’d like to see more of a focus on reducing garbage generation and he said he’d like to see a more ambitious target of 80 per cent diversion by 2015. Coun. Linda King said she wants to see more of a focus on reduction. “I think the main task that’s in front of all of us as individuals and a community is to become less wasteful,” she said.

Courts

Man guilty of shooting at cops Shawn Gillam tried to claim that sound and flash were due to the getaway van, but the judge wasn’t buying it.

S

hawn Gillam, 28, has been found guilty of shooting at a police car during a police chase on June 30, 2008. Court heard that Gillam was in a white van driven by Kenneth Lavallee when a police officer put on his lights and a chase ensued. A police officer testified he saw what he believed to be a muzzle flash from the passenger side window, heard a loud bang and could smell sulfur within seconds. Police put down a spike belt, which stopped the van and both occupants ran. Lavallee got away but Gillam was caught. The police officer noticed Gillam had thrown away a bag. It was later found and had a magazine clip for a nine-millimetre handgun in it. Gillam’s hands were found to have gunshot residue on them. Police also found stolen watches. Lavallee testified that he’d been given the magazine in exchange for drugs and he told Gillam to put it in the bag.

Lavallee testified that the van they were driving was in poor condition and backfired regularly and he said it backfired after the police officer gave chase. An automotive mechanic testified that a backfiring vehicle can produce a flash accompanied by a loud bang and there can be a sulfurous smell. However, Port Coquitlam Provincial Court Judge Anthony Spence found that the flash, which the police officer testified he saw coming from the passenger side window, wouldn’t be consistent with a backfiring vehicle due the location it was seen. Spence found Gillam guilty of six different criminal offences on Friday, including discharging a firearm with the intent of preventing an arrest, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, knowingly possessing a firearm without a licence, possession of a firearm while prohibited from doing so, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and break and enter with intent to commit an offence. Gillam hasn’t been sentenced yet on the offences.

Federal Laws

‘Spinning wheels’ on grow ops MP says medicinal marijuana program being reviewed, but councillor wanted to talk about decriminalizing the drug.

If you’ve ever wondered just how the government spends your money, visit the Odd(itie)s and Ends blog at www.mrtimes.com for a look at a recent “statement” sent out by the mysterious Public Affairs Bureau, the high-priced PR arm of the provincial government. The PAB sent an e-mail detailing Premier Gordon Campbell’s thoughts on the World Cup final. It’s riveting stuff.

Crime Teeth knocked out

A 36-year-old Maple Ridge man was struck in the face with a fire extinguisher at the Caring Place on Friday night. The force of the assault knocked the victim unconscious, broke his jaw, and knocked several teeth out. A 21-year-old Ontario man was arrested. The incident occurred at about 10:30 p.m. at the Caring Place in the 22100 block of Lougheed Highway. The two men got into a dispute, which ended when the younger man hit the other man with the fire extinguisher. The assailant was arrested a short distance away and was held in police custody for a court appearance on Monday. The victim was taken to Ridge Meadows Hospital by members of the B.C. Ambulance Service. ❚ Ridge Meadows RCMP are seeking charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, and production of a controlled substance against a 27-year-old man and his 25-year-old wife. Just after 5 p.m. on Saturday, police had to attend a report of a domestic disturbance at a home in the 11700 block of 208 Street in Maple Ridge. While ensuring the safety of all occupants, police observed packages of marijuana in plain view, along with what appears to be a recently harvested marijuana growing operation. Police have seized the marijuana.

M

aple Ridge Councillor Linda King grilled MP Randy Kamp on why the federal government doesn’t decriminalize marijuana Monday. Kamp was at a council workshop to give an update on various topics, including how the federal government is planning to deal with medicinal marijuana dispensaries popping up all over the country. The Always Growing Green Society opened up its doors in Maple Ridge in May, causing council concern about how to deal with it. King said marijuana is so highly used it’s hard to regulate. “In the whole time I’ve been elected (the RCMP’s) record of taking down grow ops has been stellar but it’s never reduced the number of grow ops. It’s the same number so to me what we’re doing with our policies at every level of government is spinning our wheels,” said King. King said the amount of money being spent on criminalization of marijuana is “huge.” “I think that what we’re doing is not successful,” she said. “It doesn’t make any sense to me.” King said she doesn’t condone any drug in particular but pointed out some drugs such as alcohol and nicotine are legal. She said Portugal and other European countries have had success after changing their drug laws. “We really have to ask ourselves what are we doing here,” she said.

Kamp said marijuana is “largely decriminalized now in practice for small amounts.” “I think it’s safe to say our government doesn’t have any interest in legalization and little interest in decriminalization,” he said. “We don’t have an interest in the wide opening up of access to marijuana.” Kamp told council that Health Canada is reviewing the medicinal marijuana program and is consulting with municipalities where medicinal marijuana dispensaries have opened up as well as law enforcement agencies. “The question remains whether the program is working as it should,” he said. Kamp said the program isn’t one that the federal government “came up with on its own.” “A court ruling almost a decade ago basically said that the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act was too restrictive for people who could benefit from marijuana as a medicinal substance so the program was kind of in response to that court ruling,” he said. Kamp said there are no clinical studies proving the effectiveness of medicinal marijuana, which is why it can’t be sold in a drug store. He pointed out people can buy dried marijuana from Health Canada, grow it themselves if they have permission from Health Canada or designate someone to grow it for them. Councillor Craig Speirs asked why the federal government hasn’t conducted clinical studies on marijuana, adding there’s been a lot of

“private” research. He said the way the current medicinal marijuana program works there’s no “efficiency of scale” for manufacturers. “I know it’s an effective medicine for a lot of folks but it’s got to be accessible,” he said. “What’s produced by the federal government isn’t appropriate for everybody, in fact very few.” He later added that the

“We don’t have an interest in the wide opening up of access to marijuana.” MP Randy Kamp

marijuana the government grows is “lousy.” Speirs said he’d like to see a “rational approach to production.” “I think at some point we have to bring in some of the people some of the folks behind setting up the dispensaries and get their input and allow them to get away from the shadow of organized crime. They don’t want to be associated or be in the same category as organized crime so how can Health Canada and the federal government allow these people who call

themselves compassionate, and they are, to step beyond the shadow and into the light,” he said. Speirs said if the federal government put the program in place respecting a court decision it should work for people and if it doesn’t it should be changed. “Give people what they need not what people think they need,” he said. Councillor Mike Morden wanted to know when council could expect some answers. “From a policing standpoint from a federal perspective do we have any kind of a timeline and are there going to be any solutions offered to us on how to deal with this on a local basis because basically there’s a hole in the (medicinal marijuana act),” he said. Kamp said from Health Canada’s perspective compassion clubs or medicinal marijuana dispensaries are “outside the law.” “The questions then is how do we respond to them,” he said, adding there has been enforcement by police in some jurisdictions. “I think law enforcement agencies are a little unsure how to respond,” he said, adding police have questions about whether they could secure a conviction and whether busts would be in the “public good.” “It is a challenge I know... as these compassion clubs and so on are multiplying and coming into suburban venues,” said Kamp. Councillor Cheryl Ashlie said there are legal ways for people to access medicinal marijuana and that’s why she “struggles” with

medicinal marijuana or compassion clubs opening up. Ashlie said she’s heard of the organizations counselling people on how to “present with symptoms” so they can get marijuana. “There’s always loopholes that people will try to abuse,” she said, adding she doesn’t want to see people going through the “right channels” for medicinal marijuana negatively impacted by those abusing the system. Mayor Ernie Daykin said he’s received phone calls recently complaining about legal grow ops in residential neighbourhoods. He said the challenge for municipalities is they’ve become the “de factor regulator.” Councillor Al Hogarth was unimpressed with the federal government’s lack of action. “My question is what the heck are they doing? They should be stepping in and taking some action not just reviewing the situation,” he said. He said Health Canada should be telling municipalities this is what you should do and we will “back you up.” “Someone is the test case and it becomes very costly to be the test case,” said Hogarth. Hogarth said Health Canada should also be able to tell police where the legal grow ops are but Kamp said there are privacy rights that preclude that from happening. Kamp admitted there are no compliance or enforcement mechanisms that were built into the medicinal marijuana regulations.

Music academy to lease Pitt Meadows heritage house The City of Pitt Meadows has reached an agreement with a music academy to lease the Struthers House on Harris Road. The house — pictured on the right — will be rented by Bergthorson Academy of Musical Arts, currently located in Maple Ridge. The Struthers House was hit by an arsonist in March and is undergoing extensive renovations which are

It

supposed to be completed in August. In addition to repairing damage caused by the fire, the city had planned other renovations for the house and those are being done at the same time. The house will be rented to the music academy for $1,469 per month and will be adjusted annually by three per cent. The city-owned house used to be the location of the Ridge Meadows Women’s Centre and then was used

by the Katzie First Nation to store archeological artifacts until the fire. The house, located at 1229 Harris Rd., was built in 1931 by William Struthers Jr. who lived there until his death in 1970. The City of Pitt Meadows bought the house in 1994. It is a protected property on the Pitt Meadows Heritage Registry and is listed on the Canadian Register of Historic Places.

Burying waste poor option, says Morden INCINERATOR, From Page 1 Coun. Mike Morden said he understands the public is opposed to incinerators but he’s not sure what the best solution is. “It’s clear from all the public that I’ve talked to is they don’t want this to happen in Metro or pretty much anywhere. I’m not sold, the jury is not really out on the results as to what’s going to happen if they were going to put a facility out in the region. What would it actually be putting out in the atmosphere? There’s all kinds of studies both ways,” he said. However, he said he is concerned about air quality and public safety. “The folks down in Chilliwack and going down through the valley there, they have poor enough air quality situation on the go. Why would you take the risk of adding something to that?” he said. Morden said he is not in favour of continuing to rely on landfills in order to avoid waste-to-energy. “I’m personally not in favour of burying any waste at all. I just find that that doesn’t make sense. We’re just simply putting a band-aid on a problem that needs to be dealt with in our future our children and our grandchildren’s future. I don’t agree also with trucking it for miles.... We’re

burning all kinds of fuel running it up to Cache Creek. I think we need to find better solutions to deal with that,” he said. Morden said if a wasteto-energy facility is built it should be operated by the public sector. “It shouldn’t be done by private operators because private operators are strictly in the business of making money in this process,” he said. “I think they would not have the right interests and motivations at heart in doing this.” Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore, who is the chair of the solid waste management committee, said public consultation on the solid waste management

plan would end July 14. The solid waste management committee will then discuss the plan on July 21 and Metro Vancouver’s board will vote on July 30. Moore said if the waste-toenergy option is approved Metro Vancouver would send out a request for proposals to build a facility or facilities. Moore stressed that waste-to-energy is just one component of the proposed plan. “Goal number one is to reduce the amount of garbage each individual produces as well as business and goal number two is diverting as much garbage before we have to deal with the actual residuals. By far that’s the most important

Curious minds learning centre r e l o c at i n g t o g l e n w o o d e l e m e n ta r y

part of the plan,” he said. He said the goal of wasteto-energy would be to get as much energy recovery as possible from the garbage. Moore said there’s “no denying incineration does cause some pollutants” but he said incinerators offset pollutants created elsewhere, like in landfills. He said modelling conducted for Metro Vancouver showed waste-to-energy would “contribute less than one per cent to the overall air quality.”

Thief takes perfume out of window Ridge Meadows RCMP are looking for a thief who broke a window at a Shoppers Drug Mart and stole a quantity of perfume. The break-in occurred just after 5 a.m. on Friday at the Shoppers store located in the 22400 block of Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge. One of the store’s front doors was smashed out, and the thief did some damage to the cosmetic counter in order to get to the perfume. ❚ A 35-year-old Maple Ridge woman will have to attend court in October 2010 to answer to fraud charges after she tried to cash an altered cheque at a bank in the Meadowtown Mall.

Safety boat stolen A

fter a Zodiac safety boat was stolen last week from the Pitt Meadows Paddling Club, the club was hit with more bad luck: a marathon racing canoe was swept away with the rising tide on Friday afternoon and hasn’t been seen since. The Zodiac was stolen on the night between June 30 and July 1 after someone cut the cable holding it in place. The club has a temporary safety boat to use during its paddling programs but they are hoping to get the club’s boat back. Commodore Rick Hammer had just done multiple repairs on the safety boat. The boat has 13 patches — a couple were white and the newly placed ones were black. The boat has a newly fabricated aluminum extrusion and one original plastic one. Hammer has posted a notice about the theft on www.stolenboats.ca and has filed a police report. The marathon canoe, which measures 18 feet, six inches in length and is 33 inches at its widest part, is a limited edition racing canoe and doesn’t handle like a normal canoe as it is quite “tippy,” Hammer said.

Green machine on the loose

A

green 2004 Kawasaki 85 cc motorcycle was stolen from a storage locker on a residential property in the 20300 block of Hammond Road in Maple Ridge. The theft occurred between Sunday July 4 and Thursday July 8. The thieves cut a padlock off the storage container and stole the trail motorcycle, an air compressor and assorted air tools, and a black Cannondale mountain bike. ❚ Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating a break-in at a home in the 12300 block of 224 Street in Maple Ridge. The break-in occurred during the night of Wednesday, July 7 or in the early morning hours of Thursday, July 8 while the homeowner was away on holidays. The thieves got in by opening a front living room window. The house sitter does not know what is missing. Ridge Meadows RCMP want to remind citizens to let reliable neighbours know they’re going to be away, when they leave their homes to go on a vacation. You should

also inform the neighbours of who is going to look after the home. If you see anyone who does not appear to belong on a property, please call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 463-6251. ❚ Charges of impaired driving and refusing to supply suitable samples of her breath are being recommended against a 41year-old Pitt Meadows woman. At about 1 p.m. last Thursday, two off-duty RCMP members, who belong to the RCMP Lower Mainland District’s Emergency Response Team observed the woman driving erratically on Dewdney Trunk Road. They got the woman to stop in the 21400 block and called in a member of the Ridge Meadows RCMP Traffic Services unit to complete the investigation. The woman exhibited several indications of having consumed alcohol, so a demand under the authority of the Criminal Code of Canada was made, and the woman was brought back to the police detachment. The woman then refused to provide suitable samples of her breath, which

is also against the law. She will have to attend court in August in regards to the charges. ❚ Ridge Meadows RCMP are on the lookout for a man who stole an air conditioner from Rona. Just before 5 p.m. on Thursday the thief walked into the store at Lougheed Highway and 212 Street in Maple Ridge. The man picked up a portable air conditioner and walked out of the store without paying for it. He got onto a red bicycle and started to ride off. A loss prevention officer intercepted him but the suspect produced a machete, so he was able to ride away. Police are looking for a Hispanic male, approximately 5’10” tall, weighing 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes and dark skin. He was wearing a black hat, a black hooded sweatshirt with white writing on it, a plastic vest (the kind worn by BMX stunt riders), a white sleeveless t-shirt, black shorts and white shoes. He was last seen riding his bike west along the Lougheed Highway towards 210 Street.

❚ Our View

Lessons on B.C.’s deficit

The fact our province’s deficit came in almost a billion dollars lower than expected is good news, but it should do little to soothe the ire of British Columbian voters. In September, the Liberal government announced the 2009 budget would run $2.8 billion into the red. This week, it said it would be closer to $1.8 billion. That’s an improvement, to be sure, but it’s still almost four times the amount of red ink they fessed up to during last year’s election. As late as April 2009, the Campbell government was sticking doggedly to the line that it could keep the deficit to a maximum of $495 million. Once danger at the ballot box had passed, they were ostensibly gobsmacked to discover the figure would be more than five times that. The slumping economy had taken them completely unawares, they insisted, and they were as shocked as anyone. From a government, such nonsense is outlandishly irresponsible. By April last year, the financial crisis and wider economic collapse had been underway for months. To suggest at that point that revenues would remain close to 2008’s was at best naive and at worst dishonest. Democracy is built on the notion that taxpayers can judge whether their dollars are being spent in the way they want. Without accurate and realistic information, they can’t do that. To fail in that regard is bad governance, pure and simple. The fact the Liberals found an extra billion dollars is praiseworthy; the fact they misled us is unforgivable.

Safety first this summer

Years ago, the Red Cross ran an advertisement aimed at boating safety. As a little boat loaded to the gunwales with people moved away from the shore, an ominous sounding voice-over came on. “Every year the same thing happens; too many people, not enough life-jackets.” It is now some years since that TV advertisement ran, but safety messages remain as vital as ever. Here in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, July brings an increase in the number of people taking to the water to either boat or swim in Alouette Lake, Whonnock Lake, Pitt Lake and others. While Transport Canada has tightened up rules around boating, requiring operator permits for any motorized vessel of any size, the best approach to safety remains common sense. The same goes for swimming and diving. There is no lack of people who would do anything to take back that moment when they did not take the time to do the necessary checks first. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. There are any number of reasons that safety is compromised, from alcohol to overconfidence. But there really is no such thing as an accident. The old saying is that accident don’t just happen, they are caused. Take some time to think about your own and the safety of others. Summer will be a lot more fun if you do. ■ Your View Last week’s question Will the new, higher Golden Ears Bridge tolls deter you from using it as often? YES NO

❚ Mailbag Protect Pelton Editor:

I wish to express my outrage over the proposal to exclude the Pelton property from the ALR. It is incomprehensible to me that this is even being considered. Not only should this property be protected for its historical significance, but this sizable property of 152 acres has some of the richest and most fertile growing soil left in the entire Lower Mainland. It is needed to sustain not only for the present, but more importantly, the everincreasing future generations. The environmental destruction alone would be devastating to the large number of wildlife in the area. The owner of this property

plans to sell almost all of it to developers for the creation of industrial parks. Having grown up in Richmond, I have seen first-hand the loss of the richest farmland in the world to industrial development, most of which remain empty, and are still up for lease, I might add. I am not only saddened, but in total disbelief that this type of irresponsible ignorance still exists in 2010. Furthermore, it is not lost on me that there is a very large financial gain to be made if this goes through. The mayor and council have gone to great lengths to get this approved.

Lower bridge toll Editor:

Why not lower the toll on the Golden Ears Bridge and remove the HST on it so more people will use it? That is the way it works in retail. Bernice Dafoe Maple Ridge

Opinion

Signage weak for Golden Ears Bridge Canwest News

I

’ve often wondered why so few friends come to visit me in my Deep Cove lair. Is it my big dog’s bad breath or my own pit bull-like personality? The other day, I finally figured it out: Deep Cove is hard to find for many wouldbe visitors. If you’re trying to drive to it over the Second Narrows Bridge, there’s no sign telling you where the turnoff is. There are signs to Dollarton or the Mt. Seymour Parkway that may be helpful to locals. But they’re of little use to others. Road signage to many Lower Mainland communities is terrible, offering little advance warning of key entry and exit points. Regular commuters along Highway 1 obviously know where they’re going. But other drivers need large, clear signs to reassure them they’re headed the right way to, say Surrey, Langley or Abbotsford. And for long stretches they don’t see any. Ever wonder why traffic over the new Golden Ears Bridge to Maple Ridge is so underwhelming? Well, the signs to the bridge, clearly added as an afterthought, are so lame you’re half way to Hope before you realize you’ve

inaccurate. Much-travelled Bob Orrick of Delta told me he has written to Transportation Minister Shirley Bond to complain both about the “deplorable” lighting in the George Massey Tunnel and poor signage in his area. Orrick, a former chief petty officer, said Bond replied that Victoria was considering having signs with larger lettering. Which would be a good first step. However, he stressed that far more needs to be done, at least if B.C. wants to catch up with other jurisdictions. “Even Jordan, for heaven’s sakes, has got better road signs than they have here,” he said. Orrick noted poor signs cause driver confusion and indecision. More than one level of government, of course, is responsible for the signage on B.C. roads. Which is clearly part of the problem.

missed the turnoff. I’m not alone in my frustration about all this. Eileen Robinson of Pitt Meadows, a retired customer service rep who still drives all over our region, says the chronic lack of proper signage drives her mad, especially in dark, rainy weather. “The signs are too late and they’re not big enough, they’re not marked clearly,” Robinson told me, adding she finds the road signs in and around the Alex Fraser Bridge and en route to the Tsawwassen ferry terminal particularly unhelpful. “I just keep wondering who is in charge of this,” she said. “Does nobody take responsibility for this?” Certainly, Global Positioning System devices and Internet maps help make road navigation far easier. But as Robinson points out, not everyone has them, and they’re sometimes

Fundraiser

Dance party going retro

S T AR T O F

Event set for this Sunday at Eagles Hall.

fter seeing her father and a friend’s mother die of cancer, Cassandra Tracy has been inspired to try to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. On Sunday night, Miss Congeniality B.C. and 2009 Miss Teen Maple Ridge and local scout commissioner Peter Tam will put on a Retro Dance Party featuring classic rock from the 1950s to the 1970s. In addition to live entertainment and a dj, there will be food, a cash bar, vintage cars and a swing dance lesson, where participants can learn simple swing steps in a circle format. “It’s a lot of great people coming together to do a fun but charity event,” Tracy said. Tracy is an active member of Scouts and has been involved in Girl Guides, Scouts, Rangers — “every kind of scouting” — and is currently a youth representative. Volunteering is a big part of scouting, Tracy said, and that’s why she wants to do her part by organizing this fundraiser. She also hopes the event will help bring the Maple Ridge community together. The Thomas Haney Secondary grad was recently chosen as Miss Congeniality B.C. at the Miss B.C. competition in Fort Langley. ❚ Retro Dance Party will take place on Sunday, July 18, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Eagles Hall at 23461 Fern Cres. in Maple Ridge. Tickets are $10 at the door. All proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Burrards face Bellies twice

The Maple Ridge Burrards met up twice with the New Westminster Salmon Bellies in the past week and both games ended with a score of 9-7 – first for the Salmon Bellies and then for the Burrards. On Thursday night, the Burrards faced New Westminster and at first looked like they would dominate the game with Derek Lowe and Joel Dalgarno scoring the only two goals of the first period. But in the second period, New Westminster hit back with four goals. After the Burrards’ Sam Cook scored, the period ended 4-3 for the Salmon Bellies. Andrew Murphy and Dalgarno scored early in the third to take back the lead over New Westminster and the Burrards looked like they could take back the game after Curtis Dickson got a goal and Dalgarno scored his third goal of the game. But New West put four more past the Burrards’ goaltender before the end of the game. The Burrards played their regular home game on Sunday night. The rematch between the two teams was a back-andforth game. The Burrards, though, ended each period in the lead – they had a 2-1 lead at the end of the first period, a 6-4 lead at the end of the second and the game ended 9-7 for the Burrards. The Burrards play against the second-place Victoria Shamrocks on Sunday night at Planet Ice at 6:45 p.m.

Passed away peacefully on Wednesday July 7, 2010 after a lengthy illness, Eila was born in Toronto, Ontario on November 7, 1932. The only daughter of Ada and Walter Rauma, Eila settled with her parents in the Finnish community of Websters Corners in 1936. Eila is survived by her loving family: husband, Derek, daughters Victoria (Brian), Lori (Bryan), Andrea (Bernie), and grandchildren Jason, Michael and Jasmine, and many relatives in Finland. During her life, Eila donated to various worthy causes related to the arts, health, education, peace, poverty and justice. She volunteered on numerous committees and organizations. Throughout her adult life, Eila was a rich resource for local writers and academics interested in the Canadian/ Finnish culture. In 2008, her vast historical knowledge was recognized when she was invited by academics at UBC to provide a speech on Finnish settlement in Canada and British Columbia. Eila enjoyed all kinds of music. She loved to dance, travel, read and spend time with family and friends. For her, family was ‘number one’. She was loving, kind, compassionate, and in times of adversity continued to display an engaging sense of humour. Her quest for knowledge never ceased. She is, and will be, deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. A celebration of Eila’s life will take place on Sunday, July 25, 2010 at 1:00 pm at Meadow Gardens, 19675 Meadow Gardens Way, Pitt Meadows. In lieu of flowers, donations in Eila’s name to McKenney Creek Hospice in Maple Ridge will be greatly appreciated. Condolences can be sent to www.gardenhill.ca. May the winds of love blow gently, and whisper so you can hear, that we will always love and miss you, and wish that you were here. Nakemiin (Goodbye)
