Sather supportive of new opposition leader Adrian Dix won on the third ballot against other frontrunner Mike Farnworth at Sunday’s NDP leadership convention. Teija Beck

The B.C. New Democratic Party elected Adrian Dix as their new leader this Sunday, and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA Michael Sather is “excited” by

the result. “I think he’s going to bring a lot of new energy, specific ideas, and we’re all feeling really energized,” Sather said. While Sather declined to publicly endorse a particular candidate leading up to the leadership vote, he predicted that the decision would be a close one. Dix won in the third round of polling with 52 per cent of the vote, edging out other frontrunner Mike Farnworth by only 677 votes to become the new opposition leader. Despite the split vote, Sather

said the whole party will be supportive of Dix. “When you’re backing a different candidate, there’s always some disappointment with that, but the whole campaign was really positive,” Sather said. Looking forward to an election that many expect will take place later this year, Sather said the NDP are talking about the different issues that affect British Columbians, such as jobs and the economy. “[Dix] is talking about rolling back the corporate tax cuts by two per cent to where it was in

2008,” Sather said, adding that he supported the move which would “put some money in the coffers” to use elsewhere while still being a competitive rate. Liberal Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton said he feels there’s some angst surrounding some of the policies Dix supports. “He is pretty clear that he does want to take the party more away from the centre,” Dalton said. “It’s moving it more in an ideological direction, so I think there are some real concerns out there if he was to become pre-

mier.” While Dalton wouldn’t speculate as to the timing of an upcoming election, he did say it would be an interesting race, and that the economy would be a key issue. “We all know the importance of the economy,” Dalton said. “We need a good relationship with the business community... There’s a difference between the [Liberal and NDP] parties, and I think that’s very clear with Adrian Dix.”

Bullying targeted

Fifty convictions A 30-year-old man, who has the “distinction” of reaching 50 criminal convictions, has received two years for his latest robbery. Chad Allen Stewart robbed the Subway restaurant in the 22800 block of Lougheed Highway in Maple Ridge on Jan. 31, 2009. He wore a mask and brandished a large knife. Stewart fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, in a stolen car. He was caught and arrested nearby a short time later and has remained in custody ever since. • More online:, click on “News”

Horses provide therapy for riders

Volunteering at the North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association is fulfilling, says its program coordinator. by Troy Landreville

Like tiny pebbles, driving rain pelted the metal roof of North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association’s indoor arena on a bitingly cold recent Tuesday afternoon. With each breath, puffs of air blew out of the nostrils of the Norwegian Fjord “Rupert” as he carried Liam, a new rider taking part in his first lesson at the NFTRA’s centre in rural Maple Ridge. The cold didn’t seem to affect Liam as he and Rupert ambled around the arena. Guiding horse and rider were volunteers Tania Teixeira, Lynne Bradley, Anne Jonatschick, and Maureen Newton, whose roles with the NFTRA are crucial. And more like them are needed. With the NFTRA’s spring horseback riding program starting, the association is seeking volunteers to help groom and tack its seven horses, and to lead or side walk with the riders during their lessons. “We can’t be a successful program without them,” said Jonatschick, president of

Petition to save Albion Hall

Albion Hall has been slated for demolition.

However, Cook has a better idea – she would like to buy it herself, and turn it into a guild hall. “A personal, private individual can do what they want,” she said, “because it’s a heritage building,” meaning she would not have to bring it up to municipal standards. “It’s a real piece of our heritage,” he added. “I’ve saved buildings worse than that in Vancouver and all over.” Cook would like to see the building used as an Elizabethan-style guild hall, where artists can use it for a low cost. “I was going to do it personally to

show people that something can be done,” she said. The building was assessed at $315,500, and council had decided this amount, less the cost of demolition and legal bills, will be set aside for a “future community gathering place” that will be accessible to the Albion neighbourhood. Cook has no problem bidding for the property and is prepared to pay what the District paid for the transfer. Cook said the petition will be available for people to sign starting April 20 at The ACT, during the run of Anne.

Federal election

Many ways to vote this May

Advanced polling and mail-in ballots give voters more options. by Maria Rantanen

Voter information cards should have arrived in mailboxes last week. If not, Elections Canada encourages residents to register as soon as possible to make election day on May 2 as smooth as possible. Voter information cards include information about where and when to vote. However, voters should look at the information carefully, said Susan Friend, spokesperson for Elections Canada, to see that their personal information is correct. The local Elections Canada office is at #51022470 Dewdney Trunk Rd. Advance polling will take place on Friday, April 22, Saturday, April 23, and Monday, April 25 from noon to 8 p.m. The location of the advance poll is on each voter’s information card. Local residents who haven’t received a voter information card should call Elections Canada office at 1-800-463-6868 to register. Advance registration should be done by April 26. Voters, however, are able to register and vote on election day, but it will be smoother if registration is done in advance,

according to Friend. A brochure is being sent to every household in Canada, which Elections Canada is calling “reminder cards.” They include the type of identification that can be used to register for voting. Voting by special ballot is another option to make one’s voice heard. It is an option for all voters, but it is especially useful for emergency workers who might be called away on election day, or for voters

who will be travelling on election day. To vote by special ballot, one must be registered by April 26. A special ballot can be downloaded from the Elections Canada website or picked up from the local office. Voters can vote at the office when they pick up the package or mail it in. However, the special ballot has to be in by the time

polls close at 7 p.m. on May 2. “The onus is on the voter to get that vote in,” Friend said. During the last election, 30,000 people in B.C. voted by special ballot. However, if a voter picks up a special ballot, they are marked on the voters’ list as having received the ballot and cannot vote either in the advance poll or on election day.

One hundred seventy-six signatures on a petition to save Albion Hall is just the beginning, according to president of the Peace Twig Fundraising Association, Wendy Cook. She dropped off the list at the Maple Ridge council chambers on Monday morning and hopes it will persuade the councillors and Mayor Ernie Daykin to bring the matter back before council. “The council hadn’t really known how much of the community used it,” said Cook. The hall was transferred to the District of Maple Ridge’s ownership at the end of March, and it will be torn down as bringing it up to municipal standards would be too costly, according to Kelly Swift, general manager of community development and parks and recreation.

Lawren Mallory said he followed his instincts when it came to a Postmedia customer.

Good deeds

Carrier saves woman A Maple Ridge resident noticed an elderly woman had not picked up any newspapers for a few days last week. by Amy Judd

Lawren Mallory is out and about delivering newspapers for Postmedia before most of us are even awake. But even at 3:30 a.m., his instinct was sharp enough to know that something was wrong at a customer’s home. “It was Tuesday that I noticed the lady had not been picking up her papers,” said Mallory, who delivers the Sun, Province, and National Post, sister papers of the TIMES. “I’ve had the route a little over a year now and she’s never gone away on holiday or stopped her paper.” Papers had been piling up outside her

Maple Ridge home since Saturday, so Mallory phoned his distribution manager Jeremy Taylor. “He called me,” said Taylor, “and I called the RCMP non-emergency line.” Police were able to find a neighbour with a key, and when they entered the home they found the elderly resident had fallen the previous Saturday and had been laying there ever since. Taylor said the homeowner is “doing ok” and is still in the hospital. Mallory is happy the woman is getting care, and that he was able to do his part. “I go by at 3:30 in the morning,” he said. “The only reason I knew she was an elderly lady, and she lived by herself, is that at Christmas time she asked me to ring her doorbell because she wanted to give me a card and a tip.” “If that hadn’t happened, I probably wouldn’t have thought twice about it,” he added.

BIA seeks new mandate The five-year mandate for the association representing downtown businesses ends on Dec. 31. by Teija Beck

Maple Ridge council will put forward a recommendation to renew the mandate of the Maple Ridge BIA after a presentation in council workshop Monday morning. The Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association currently operates under a five-year mandate that expires Dec. 31, 2011. “I would say [council] were very positive about the presentation,” said BIA executive director Ineke Boekhorst after the meeting. “I think there’s a lot of things we can do in partnership with the District of

Maple Ridge and many other organizations.” Boekhorst said the presentation was part of the association’s annual review. Part of the discussion centered around renewing the mandate, and the staff recommendation to renew it would be “fabulous for the BIA,” she said. Among members of the association, support for the continued existance of the BIA is strong, according to Boekhorst. “We have done a survey to our members that was 100 per cent in favour of renewal, so from our perspective we have been very successful in the past five years,” Boekhorst said. The BIA is a non-profit organization funded through tax contributions of participating businesses. Its purpose is to encourage business in the downtown core and act on behalf of area businesses including promotion, security, cleanliness and parking.





Police blotter

Three arrested in home invasion Baseball bat allegedly used in attack. Police were able to arrest all three suspects in what they are calling a “home invasion style break-andenter” that occurred Friday April 15, just before 1:30 p.m. Two women and one 26year-old man armed with

a baseball bat forced their way into an apartment in the 22200 block of 122 Avenue. The man allegedly hit one of the people inside the suite. The two women involved, ages 24 and 47, were later released from police custody with court appearance dates in May. The man was held in

custody for a first appearance on Monday. Police are recommending charges of possession of a dangerous weapon, breaking and entering a residential dwelling, and mischief to property, which covers the damage incurred to the apartment suite.

Our View

Real world winning is everything The connection between the blood sport of politics as it’s played on the ground and the lofty ideals of democracy is debatable at best. Never is that more apparent than at election time. Take the current election. Indeed, many potential voters would dearly appreciate anyone taking this election… and don’t bother bringing it back! Many Canadian citizens are rational people who understand that they live in a democracy, with accordant privileges and responsibilities. And yet they resent the fact they’re heading to the polls in a couple of weeks, and would just as soon see the election go away. You might think that would be bad news for politicians. But that’s not necessarily true. Turning off voters can be an advantage in a campaign, something not lost on the authors of various attack ads that started during the unofficial election, before the real election was even called. While most people are prepared to get on their high horse about the unpleasantness of “negative” advertising, parties keep at it because it works. Primarily, it works by making people so disgusted they don’t bother to vote. When average folk stay away, it leaves the votes of the ideologically motivated and party faithful -- who always vote -to carry the day. In an ideal world, of course, parties would try to encourage intelligent policy debate and to get as many people out to the polls as possible on May 2. But that’s not how realpolitik functions. Political strategy tends to be more complicated and sneaky than that. Decisions are made by those who show up. Especially to the ballot box. That’s worth a thought before the nastier, eye-glazing parts of the campaign cause a large chunk of the electorate to tune out, turn off or drop out.

Federal election

Environment needs attention Dear Editor,

Where is the environment in this election? After a five-year track record of failing to meaningfully tackle greenhouse gas pollution, Canada is now falling further behind in being a competitive player in the rapidly growing clean-energy market. There is nothing in the Conservative platform that would reverse this trend. The government has announced it would introduce regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the production of electricity, but so far there are no such regulations in place. The government also has not implemented the key climate policies needed to meet emission targets for 2020. Environment Canada projects that emissions will actually be higher in 2020 than they are today. Canada would miss the Copenhagen target by nearly 30 per cent. There is nothing in the Conservative platform to reverse this trend. The worst culprit of the fast-growing greenhouse gas pollution, the tar sands, are not even mentioned in their platform. Actually our government officials actively lobby in the U.S. and the E.U. against any restrictions of dirty oil. They now claim the tar sands oil is “ethical” oil, because it is not coming from a country like Libya. There is no commitment to phase out fossil fuel subsidies to companies that treat Canada as a corporate colony and reap billions of dollars in profits from raping and pillaging our environment. As far as sustainable transportation is concerned, there is no new funding for transit, high speed rail, or other clean transportation, something which would

truly benefit our quality of life and the air we breathe. All the other parties have made much stronger commitments to reduce greenhouse gases. The environmental platform of the Conservative government, if you can even call it that, would definitely deserve a failing grade. And we will have to dearly pay for that in the future.

Maria Raynolds, Maple Ridge

Column cruel Dear Editor,

Re: [Politicians singing wrong tune, April 15, TIMES] it is Tim Tyler whose tune has a discordant note. His statement that Randy Kamp would push a disabled child’s walker out of the way for a photo op was “mean and downright cruel.” Writers lose credibility when they use such low-blows to further their own political views. Tim should have added a few stanzas to his song regarding the other political candidates non-abilities, as it was a little heavy on the drums. By the way, I usually enjoy Tim’s columns and sense of humour, but I don’t care for criticizing people’s motives regarding the disabled. I’m sure everyone wants the best care and concern for them.

Pitt Meadows

CP not being good neighbours Dear Editor,

It appears that the people who operate the intermodal terminal on Kennedy Road do not care about the businesses or residents of Pitt Meadows. I have lived on Kennedy Road for 14 years. Recently, I have noticed an increase


Say ‘no’ to malls Dear Editor,

Shopping malls are usually accessed by cars, thus generating dense traffic. Not only does traffic increase, but cars are usually driven slowly, when most of the toxic exhaust is generated. It has been shown that air quality in the mall and its vicinity is affected. Malls are big energy consumers, and thus generate greenhouse gases, adding to global warming and pollution. In the past, big box stores have violated numerous water-quality standards. They did not use proper methods for clearing the site for construction. When heavy rains began (and keep in mind we are living on the “Wet Coast”), the water carried tons of silt to nearby rivers and streams. I could go on about plastic shopping bags. And there is also the possibility that local retailers would be gobbled up within in a short time. What is the minimum wage in B.C.? I believe it’s the lowest in Canada. So I’ll leave it at that for the readers to ponder. Sharon Russell, Maple Ridge

in the amount of time trains spend blocking the Kennedy Road grade crossing. During rush hours, the crossing is now blocked more often. Sometimes the crossing is blocked anywhere from five to 30 minutes – whatever it might take. The trains pull through the yard and out to block Kennedy Road. They stop to unload containers at various locations from the trains, and maybe load some containers on for elsewhere. CP has claimed that they were here first. But the intermodal terminal was built in 1997-98, so this is not the case. When the intermodal terminal was being built, representatives from CP Rail management were involved in some really positive meetings at the Pitt Meadows community hall. They said they would try to keep Kennedy and Harris Road crossings as clear as possible. There was supposed to be liaison between CP Rail and the City of Pitt Meadows. Sadly, it seems that this is no longer the case. For local residents and businesses, CP Rail’s attitude comes across as “if you don’t like it you can lump it.” There is a sign near the Kennedy Road grade crossing that has a 1-800 number in case of long delays. The phone seems to be answered from some distant place, like Calgary – or Mars. Calling it never results in any satisfaction. Recently a CP Rail representative said they were going to start running 9,000foot-long trains. What are they now, 19,000 feet long? What can be done to address this problem?

Bryant Kamlade is offering small, affordable music classes for anyone who wants to learn how to play the guitar starting May 4.

Music within reach for all

A musician is making sure any child who wants to learn how to play guitar can do so without breaking the bank. by Amy Judd

A love and desire to play music and teach others seems to course through Bryant Kamlade’s veins. The 23-year-old Maple Ridge resident, and soon-to-be Simon Fraser University student, decided he wanted to give all children the chance to play and learn guitar at a low cost to their parents. “I think everyone should be able to have that opportunity,” he said. “The focus is on guitar, but there will be a drumming and songwriting tutorial. That’s my passion.” Kamlade has been playing guitar for about 12 years, and as part of the the band Last Day Lost, he has shared the stage with acts such as Theory of a Deadman, Hedley and Faber Drive. He has also been a semifinalist

for songwriting in the International Songwriting Competition, and the Billboard World Song Contest. After finishing a degree at Douglas College and teaching guitar out of his home, Kamlade now wants to spread his love of music through affordable, small classes. The program is eight weeks, with class sizes between three and six students. Instruments will be provided for those who don’t own one. A beginner adult class, along with intermediate youth classes are also offered. “I really feel it’s important for the kids to have fun,” said Kamlade. “I really love teaching, and I think the kids have to be in a fun, relaxed setting.” The program begins May 4 and runs until June 29 at the Burnett Fellowship Church in Maple Ridge. Prices are $50 for classes once a week, and $80 for classes twice a week. “If people have trouble raising the funds, they can contact us and we’ll work with them,” said Kamlade.

Pitt Meadows resident takes on beauty pageant Angie Medina is competing in her first Miss World Canada pageant this year. by Teija Beck

Pitt Meadows resident Angie Medina is more than just a pretty face. While she is undoubtedly beautiful, this aspiring pageant competitor is passionate about fundraising for local charities and promoting positive body image among young girls. The 19-year-old Simon Fraser University student will be competing in this year’s Miss World Canada pageant at the River

Rock Casino on May 16 to 19, her first pageant. “This is all new for me, so I’m just trying to take this one step at a time,” Medina said. From shopping for evening gowns to organizing fundraisers for Variety — The Children’s Charity, Medina is channelling her energy into the pageant and enjoying every minute of it. At SFU, Medina is an executive for SFU UNICEF and a member of Club for the Cure, an organization that raises money for cancer research at BC Children’s Hospital. On top of those responsibilities, why get involved in a beauty pageant? “I like being involved, and once I found out that [Miss

Angie Medina is competing in Miss World Canada for the first time this year. World] works with Variety, I figured since I already like to help out with charities, why not?” Medina said.

“I also want to empower young girls that beauty is more than skin deep ... You can have beauty, brains and a heart.” As part of her participation in the pageant, Medina is holding a fundraiser at Roosters Country Cabaret on May 5, with all proceeds going to Variety. “I’ve had lots of support from the community,” Medina said. “The tickets are coming in later this week, so I’m just planning on having my friends sell as many as we can. I’m hoping at least 100 people [come out].” Each year, the Miss World Canada pageant helps raise about $100,000 for Variety, according to Carla Jones, Variety’s director of marketing. If Medina wins the Miss World

Canada competition in May, she will represent Canada in the international pageant in Brazil. While her main goals are to raise funds for Variety and enjoy the experience, Medina said she hopes to make it to the semifinals or beyond in the pageant. Born in Lima, Peru, Medina moved to Canada at the age of four, settling first in Calgary and moving to Pitt Meadows eight years ago. She is studying communications at SFU, and aspires to be a lawyer specializing in international law. For more information on Medina’s fundraiser, visit her Facebook event page: Angie presents Variety — The Children’s Charity at Roosters.

Track and field season in full swing Students across the district, from high school to elementary, took part in some track and field events these past few weeks. by Amy Judd

The sun was bright, the ground was dry (ish), and the energy was high for the Nick Wilkes Invitational held at Maple Ridge Secondary School on April 7. About 400 high school students from School District 42, as well as most of the Coquitlam schools, and Walnut Grove, descended on the track at MRSS to compete in the first track and field meet of the season. “The whole idea is to encourage participation,” said MRSS English teacher and organizer Ken Elphick. This event is held every year and honours Nick Wilkes, a former MRSS student who died in 2002. “On our track team he still holds the provincial record for the decathlon,” said Elphick. “We named the meet after him. It’s all about fun and participation, and he was someone who was passionate about track and field,” he added. The races were for both boys and girls at the meet,

with some co-ed races thrown in. A highlight of the event was the steeplechase, where participants had to jump over obstacles and land in water. The bigger the splash the bigger the cheer. “It’s a lot of work,” said Elphick, “but it is such a reward to see so many kids out there.” He also stressed that he couldn’t organize it by himself, and had many volunteers from the high schools running all the events. The MRSS track team now competes in numerous events and competitions, and Elphick is hoping to take a solid team to the provincial championships this year. Hopefully the weather will be just as good as the first day event. “This is about the first year in 10 we’ve had good weather,” Elphick laughed. Unfortunately the same could not be said for School District 42’s primary cross-country races held last week. The rain poured down on the heads of the children, parents, and volunteers at Albion sports fields last Wednesday. However, that did not stop the children from having fun. Cheers for each school could be heard coming from various tents, and despite wet hair hanging in their eyes and their clothes sticking to their skin, most children were

Maple Ridge could be the best place to fish in the entire country, if voters deem it to be so through an online competition.

happy just to get a chance to run. Wednesday, April 13, was grades one to three from half the district, and that still totalled about 500 kids. “It’s all about participation, and encouraging kids to get out and get active,” said Lisa Jakeway, the elementary facilitator. “I give ribbons to the first 25 participants in each age category, and everyone gets a participants’ ribbon,” she added. This primary meet has been running for a long

cheering and running around.” “It’s a great community event and it brings people together,” she added.
