A toxic substance can be fatal, even if just smelled, depending on what it’s made up of. I really implore the public to get involved and be vigilant in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

Coroner to examine death of toddler A Maple Ridge toddler succumbed to his injuries after falling out a window. By Gordon McIntyre

Special to The TIMES

The BC Coroners Service will look into the death of a toddler who fell from a secondstorey window at a Maple Ridge home on

Friday. The child, reported to be two years old, fell around 4:30 p.m. on Friday and a helicopter was called to Westview Secondary to airlift the victim to B.C. Children’s Hospital. The child died over the weekend.

From there, there’s a steep, shingled decline of about two metres, then a one-storey drop to a concrete driveway. “The investigation is still in a very preliminary stage,” coroner Barb McLintock said on Tuesday, “but there will be a full investigation.”

Five decades and counting… Pitt Meadows Regional Airport is celebrating its 50th birthday this weekend, with a focus on careers in aviation. On any regular day, people can’t get onto the airport grounds, but on Airport Day, this Sunday, the public is being given a chance to get much closer to the action, said YPK manager Glenn Ralph. This Sunday July 21, the airport will host its annual free event, Airport Day, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For the first time at Airport Day, they are looking for a theme for the event. This time it will be schools and careers in aviation. “We made a decision that because we are a school and have a unique configuration of runways – we have parallel runways, nobody else has that, a water runway, northsouth runway – that gives us capacity to do a whole bunch of training... pretty much anything you can do you can learn to do it here,” Ralph explained. There will be a dozen displays set up in the hangars around the airport on Sunday that promote many different types of occupations in aviation, said the new office service coordinator Amanda Zannet. “Hopefully, tons of families will come down. In the previous years, we have had not so great of weather. We’ve pushed it back a month this year for the first time. It’s going to be hopping,” Zannet said.

By changing the date by one month – from mid-June to mid-July – Pitt Meadows Regional Airport’s Amanda Zannet hopes things will be better than ever at the annual Pitt Meaodws Airport Day on Sunday. Returning favourites to this year’s festivities will include the children’s ride-on airplane train and static aircraft exhibition. There will also be displays from popular aircraft manufacturers and introductory flights. There will be free flights for children and discounted adult flights. Even NEXUS customs officers will be on location to explain a quicker way to cross the border. “We do Airport Day every year. The object-

ive is to allow the public to get close to the airport and see it operating as it does everyday. So our schools will operate as they do every day. We encourage pilots on the property to fly,” said Ralph. There will also be a plaque dedicated to the mayors of Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge by “queen-for-the-day” Nellie Kuiper, who has lived on the north edge of the airport property for at least 50 years.

Hazards

Fire danger still great, despite some rain by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

Despite a little bit of rain, everything is still volatile, according to an assistant fire chief in Pitt Meadows. “Discarded cigarettes can smolder for hours. When the right humidity and heat conditions present themselves, which has happened in the past few days, combustibles become easily ignited,” Brad Perrie said of the ongoing risk of fires in the region. They had several small fires during the past few days that could have been avoided. “We had one in the planter at the Chevron right down the

quicker than plain water, he added. “Bark mulch fires are a lot of work for firefighters because some soils can burn a foot or more deep,” Perrie added. In neighbouring Maple Ridge,

a westbound train sparked a few fires along the Canadian Pacific tracks at 270th and 263rd streets on Monday, said fire chief Dane Spence. “We had a couple of brush fires along the tracks that were hard to access,” said Spence. “At one point we had embers showering over Lougheed Highway.” Witnesses said they saw a large amount of sparks coming from the exhaust of the locomotive, Spence explained. There was no immediate water available so the fire department was forced to ferry in water by a “tanker shuttle.” Crews from all three firehalls fought the fires for four hours.

Thespian Pigs ranked best in the province

Maple Ridge’s community theatre group garnered a series of awards, including best production, at an awards competition in Kamloops Saturday. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge thespians are rejoicing after winning a fistful of awards at the provincial theatre competition this weekend. At Theatre BC’s Mainstage gala awards night in Kamloops Saturday, the Emerald Pig Theatrical Society’s production of Trying, by Joanna McCelland Glass, was honoured as the best production. According to adjudicator Dean Paul Gibson, Trying was the most outstanding production in every way – and he reiterated “in every way.” John Stuart and Emily Doreen Wilson were the king and queen of the ball, garnering best actor and best actress accolades. Wilson, a Port Coquitlam resident and Vancouver college student, celebrated her 22nd birthday at Mainstage. “I was really quite surprised by the best actress win,” Wilson said, noting she earned best supporting actress accolades at the regionals earlier this year for the same role and was shocked to then get a best actress honours. “I was really nervous, as there were a lot of women on stage this year, women with much more experience under their belts, doing risque, dark material. But when Dean Paul Gibson announced my name as a contender for best actress, I thought I was going to faint,” she told The TIMES. “And then when he called my name, I had no idea how to respond. I gave Simon and John a hug, and ran to the stage, where I was presented by the award, and had a starstruck moment when Dean Paul kissed me on the cheek. It was pretty surreal. I’ve never had that level of recognition, or that kind of wonderful response to my work before, and it was incredible to know that you’ve touched people with your art. This is why the arts are so important. I love my job,” said the young woman who is now stepping into the position of a microphone technician for John Stuart played Judge the Emerald Pig’s upcoming Biddle in Trying, which production of Macbeth – A garnered a number of awards Midsummer’s Nightmare. at Mainstage Saturday. Wilson’s leading man, Stuart, received a standing ovation as he made his way to the podium to accept his award, his first thespian award in his acting career. The 61-year-old co-founder of Emerald Pig said he was appreciative of the award. “This is probably the most challenging role I have ever done, and I am very happy to be rewarded for it, especially from an adjudicator as knowledgeable and respected as Dean Paul Gibson,” said Stuart, currently a White Rock resident looking to sell his home and return to the Maple Ridge area soon. “Our best production award was truly the result of a group effort. Emily and I are the ones seen on stage, but everyone from designers to set builders gave it their all for this show,” Stuart added. Director Simon Challenger, a 55-year-old Maple Ridge resident, was also honoured for the best technical – sound production, and given an award of merit for outstanding direction by a first-time director, an award that adjudicator Gibson had himself received on his first time out. “I’m absolutely amazed by the way that everything came together in this show,” Challenger said. “This production succeeded because of the hard work and talent of a number of individuals who I cannot begin to properly thank for their efforts and contributions. On a personal note, I am humbled by the recognition given to me by the adjudicator, Dean Paul Gibson, and also by the acknowledgement of other people in the theatre community,” he said. Honourable mentions also given to the Trying crew for set design, lighting, and costumes, and makeup rounded out the applause. “A hearty congratulations to everyone involved in the production and to the whole Emerald Pig family,” said group founder and president Sharon Malone. “We would have all liked to have been there tonight

to share the excitement, but there are only five days until Bard on the Bandstand 2013 takes Spirit Square in Pitt Meadows by storm with Macbeth – A Midsummer’s Nightmare,” she explained. In fact, Malone noted, the whole Trying gang had very little chance to celebrate their victories, as they rushed back to Maple Ridge Sunday, and made it in time for a morning dress and tech rehearsal. “Sunday morning at 6 o’clock, Heather and I raced back from Kamloops so that I could get to rehearsal in Pitt Meadows for 10 o’clock that morning,“ said Challenger. Emerald Pig is in its 11th year, and last year was the first time the group won regionals and qualified to compete at Mainstage. Its dramatic production of A Particular Class Of Woman in 2012 earned the Pigs best costumes and best ensemble awards.

A Pitt Meadows man has been sentenced to one year in jail for getting behind the wheel of a car drunk and killing his girlfriend. Trevor Livingston was handed the sentence in front of a packed B.C. Supreme courtroom in New Westminster on Monday. He also received a threeyear driving ban. Livingston was behind the wheel of girlfriend Amanda Woodthorpe’s car after midnight on March 8, 2010, after a night of drinking at Rooster’s Country Cabaret in Pitt Meadows. Also in the car were Woodthorpe, 19, and two other friends. Livingston, then 20, lost control of the vehicle on Lougheed Highway and crashed into a utility pole. Woodthorpe died at the scene. Livingston suffered multiple injuries, including a broken hip and a smashed hand. His right leg had to be amputated. The two other passengers had minor injuries. He pleaded guilty in February to one count of impaired driving causing death. During a sentencing hearing last month, the court heard how Livingston had violated the rules of his learner’s licence. He had too many passengers

Teens ‘lucky’ after crashing into Albion ravine

Two young men were involved in a single car accident in Albion Monday evening. by Ronda Payne editorial@mrtimes.com

Two teenagers were considered “lucky to be alive,” according to those on site at an early evening car crash in Albion Monday. Ridge Meadows RCMP were called to the scene of the accident in the 24300 block of 112th Avenue just before 6 p.m. An SUV had gone off the road into a wooded ravine along the north side of the street. The vehicle was westbound on 112th Avenue and may have lost control on some loose gravel from nearby road work, said RCMP Cpl. Alanna Dunlop. The driver’s father and passenger’s mother both showed up on scene prior

to the arrival of paramedics. Injuries were not believed to be life threatening. Both young men were considered to be “shaken up” and were taken to the hospital for assessment, Dunlop said. Onlookers who gathered around the crash site expressed surprise that the teens weren’t seriously hurt given the SUV’s position in the treed area and the deployment of airbags. Police re-opened the street to regular traffic flow shortly after 7:30 p.m. when the tow truck had pulled the vehicle from the ravine. At present, the driver has not been charged. Dunlop said the case is still under investigation. Any witnesses or anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the RCMP at 604-463-6251, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800222-8477.

Buddying entrepreneurs

Ten-year-old Kailyn Stratton of Coquitlam travelled out to Maple Ridge with her family Saturday, to participate in her grandmother’s garage sale on Morse Crescent – off 224th Street. The young entrepreneur, who also sells no-bake macadamia nut cookies in her neighbourhood, found the design for a lemonade stand on Pinterest, and with help from her mother Lynn Stratton was able to construct the stand and transport it to Maple Ridge for its inaugural run last weekend. She was joined by four-year-old Addison Briggs, and Addison’s older sister – also named Kailyn, eight – in selling treats to those who attended the multi-house sale. The young Stratton, who recently visited municipal hall to see if she required a business licence for her refreshment stand, is saving up to purchase an iPod. Last weekend’s venture earned $10 towards her goal.

Our View

Little faith in Carbon Trust Carbon is the stuff diamonds are made of, so you’d expect it to be expensive. But you may not be aware of just how much it has cost B.C. taxpayers. For instance, it has cost school districts across B.C. more than five and a half million dollars – that’s how much local-level education has pumped into the B.C. government’s Pacific Carbon Trust. And that’s just the beginning. The province’s universities have tossed another $4.5 million into the carbon kitty, and health authorScan this ities have boosted the page with carbon tax surplus by another $6 million. Yup. We said “surplus.” The Pacific Carbon Trust is sitting with a $30-million surplus, while school districts like ours in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows have been tasked with cutting services – to our children – by about one-sixth of that amount, just a little less than school districts across the province paid towards a questionable effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, university students’ fees go up, and hospital visitors dip into their pockets for parking fees (while the hospitals post cheery signs pointing out the importance of loved-ones’ visits to patients’ health outcomes). We’re not opposed to efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. We recognize that climate change is real – and dangerous. But this is not the way. Money collected from tax-funded government services – like health and education – goes to corporations that, in many cases, get paid to do what they were planning (or not planning) to do anyway. Or in the case of that surplus, the money just sits there. Meanwhile, government services are cut while their costs to taxpayers rise, and government funds go into a government fund to pay the corporations that caused the need for the fund. We find it all pretty confusing. – B.G.

Traffic calming

Bump-outs expensive, ineffective

Dear Editor, I notice the City is planning to install yet another traffic bump-out on the curve of Park Road opposite the West Coast Express and some recently constructed housing. Considering this year’s release of information on the City finances and the upcoming resurrection of the zero per cent tax increase petition, I can’t help but wonder why the City is still chasing traffic calming by way of expensive bump-outs. This method is not 100 per cent effective 100 per cent of the time, and is much more costly (in construction and upkeep, if planted) than the use of traffic tables (also known as

traffic bumps), which are one of the means used successfully throughout the Lower Mainland to calm traffic in residential areas. This is certainly not to say that I am against traffic calming – much to the contrary. I am for effective, cost-efficient traffic calming, but the City’s current, singular method is simply not logical.

But not nearly as fun as last year. The kids zone sucked this year. Way better with the bouncy castle and swing rides. And half the park was still empty.” – Katie Clunn “I agree! The kid zone was very disappointing.” – Selby Tifenbach “Saturday is always the quiet day. It seems like the time to have a comfortable look around. Sunday will have a much more pulled-together, party atmosphere. I think the kids zone needs to be seriously updated or dropped altogether.” – Conni Christensen “I agree, not as fun. Something is lacking this year… the acoustics for the band are great, but can barely hear the MC… I don’t get that… the kids zone was a bore… Because of the lack of energy, I don’t even wanna go tomorrow.” – Kassandra Antone “How could these comments possibly fit the picture[s]?

Taz makes everyone who watches his antics laugh and feel good, but for some unfathomable reason someone wants to hurt and kill these wonderful animals, truly man’s best friend. You might hate a particular dog if it bit you, for instance, but I can not imagine why anyone could indiscriminately hate all dogs enough to do this kind of thing. If anyone has any information in regards to this depraved coward, please contact RCMP at 604-4636251. The person we are looking for must have access to tempered window glass, or have dog food but no dog, or go on rants about dogs or other animals, or possibly live close to Volker Park.

Paying respect to the pipes A Maple Ridge man will soon take his fifth trip to perform in Glasgow, this time with a new perspective. by Ronda Payne editorial@mrtimes.com

Like most children, Kevin McLean starting playing musical instruments in elementary school. What was different about McLean, however, is that he went on to play the bagpipes at age 13. Now 22 years old, the lifelong Maple

Ridge native is bringing a new perspective to his nearly decade-long love of the ancient instrument known for its role on the battlefield. Part of the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band, McLean has lots of experience. And it was those skills that landed this young piper a gig playing in the unusual setting of the former battlefields of France for a week in early June. “Well, it definitely made me have a whole new respect for the instrument,” McLean said of the experience. “It pretty much changed my perspective of the instrument.”

Funds raised from the June, 2013 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the fight against prostate cancer.

Where you may have been spending an hour contributing to your online community, you may now find that you have an extra hour to laze in your hammock. Think again.

Bela Piocza, 14, struck a pose while helping himself to a free Slurpee last Thursday, July 11, at the 7-Eleven location at 23180 Lougheed Highway.

Business

Free drinks help beat heat Patrons of 7-Eleven stores in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows slurped back complimentary Slurpees.

It’s not often people get anything for free nowadays. But for one day only, 7-Eleven’s from B.C. to Ontario – including those in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows – made an exception. During the franchise’s largest ever giveaway, 7-Eleven gave away Slurpee drinks last Thursday, July 11 (or 7/11).

The giveaway helped celebrate 7Eleven’s 44th birthday in Canada, and a total of 485 stores across Canada served up 1,500 of the 12 oz Slurpee drinks. “We’re always looking at ways in which we can do more to give back to our loyal customers,” said Tim Donegan, vice president for 7-Eleven Canada. “We’ve been listening to what they’ve been saying and the main thing is that they want more Slurpee,” he said. “This birthday, for the first time, we’re giving away larger Slurpee cups (12 oz as opposed to the usual 7.11oz) and more of them.”

Country Fest

Last call put out for talent

Country Fest talent show organizers are looking for a wide variety of acts to fill out the main stage this year. by Ronda Payne editorial@mrtimes.com

It’s time to polish up the hula hoops, tune the trombone, and get the roller skates out of the closet. The annual local talent show – Ridge Meadows Got Talent – is getting ready to screen videos and choose who will grace the mainstage at Country Fest later this month. “It’s part of Country Fest,” said organizer Peggy Stoltz of Northridge Church in Maple Ridge. “So, it’s part of their lineup on the main stage.” This year’s contest features two age categories, the youth program for ages 18 and under, and the adult program for ages 19, “up to whatever – 99 plus,” joked Stoltz. With the deadline for submission on Saturday, there’s no time to waste. Video yourself performing your talent in three minutes or less, upload it to YouTube, then email a 200 word bio with the link to the YouTube page of the video to rmgottalent@gmail.com. “We’re looking for a lot of variety,” Stoltz said. “We tend to get a lot of musical and dancing and would like to see some variety out there.” Organizers are hoping for a full slate of contestants at Country Fest. Those who make the cut could be part of the maximum 10 youth and 10 adult participants. “I’d like to see 10 in each category if we can,” Stoltz said. “Each person will be notified if they make it to the final round

early in the week of the 22nd.” This year’s event will open with last year’s winners, 16-year-old Ria Diy and Darren Exley, and will run from 3:45 p.m. into the evening (depending upon the final number of contestants) on July 28. Stoltz noted comedy routines, bike balancing, juggling, and more are all good alternatives to singing and dancing and would be welcomed to the competition. “This is a family event,” she stressed. “Nothing raunchy or explicit lyrics, nothing censorship worthy, so good clean fun.”

Hart is not only an artist and entrepreneur, he is also the patriarch of a family of renowned logger sports athletes. He got involved in 1973 and passed his love for logger sports along to his son Greg, and grandson Stirling. Hart started at 36, Greg at 12, and Stirling at the tender age of four. In 2010, Stirling was recognized as Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Home Town Hero for his pole climbing (a discipline of logger sports), following in the footsteps of Greg, who become a Home Town Hero in 2002 also for pole climbing. In 2010, Stirling also set a world record for scaling and descending a 100-foot pole (23.3 seconds) and 80-foot pole (17.81 seconds). Stirling is a professional sport logger who spends half the year in Australia and the other half at home in B.C., doing exhibition logging shows, Hart said. “It’s physical,” the eldest Hart said, describing logger sports. “It’s not hockey or football but it’s physical. It’s climbing and sawing and chopping.” Hart’s last event was five years ago at Squamish Logger Days’ 50th anniversary and brought together three generations of sport loggers – Gord, Greg, and Stirling. • More online at www.mrtimes.com

Endurance event

Death Race daunting for athlete

A Maple Ridge resident put his physical and mental endurance to the test during a gruelling weekend in Vermont. by Troy Landreville

Maple Ridge’s Rob Farrer listened to instructions during the Peak Death Race, held last month near Pittsfield, Vermont.

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Rob Farrer couldn’t go any further. The Maple Ridge resident and owner of Sheepdog Crossfit, a gym in Port Coquitlam, reached his physical and mental limit at the Peak Death Race, held last month in the woods of Pittsfield, Vermont. Farrer owns the gym with his partner Sebastien Lavoie. Part of why he chose to do the race last month was to see what he could do if really tested. Another reason, he said, “was to show people that you can do any“All I know is I had to carry my thing if you put in hard work and backpack of about 50 pounds on get your mind in the right place, my back as well as a rock of about which is what we profess at our 50 pounds, which I had to carry in gym.” front of me for the entire hike and Near Pittsfield, Farrer made it to it took till just before 4 a.m. when I roughly the 60-hour mark. reached the reservoir.” The 35-year-old had company.

Come Lawn Bowling Maple Ridge Lawn Bowling Club

Tournament grows in support

The fourth annual Wes Durksen golf tournament continues to honour its namesake and his love of sports. by Ronda Payne

editorial@mrtimes.com

The fourth may have been the key to make it to the next step. Organizers and sponsors for the Wes Durksen fourth annual memorial charity golf tournament were pleased to see the attendance and funds raised were the highest ever. “To round it to the nearest thousand, it was more than $7,000 raised,” said tournament organizer Kyle Robertson. The event, held on July 8 at Pitt Meadows Golf Course, included a golf tournament, silent auction, and dinner. “It was good,” said Gunnar Miller with

A27

the presenting sponsor, Eastgate Autobody Shop. “It was well attended.” Robertson echoed Miller’s feedback. “We had 64 golfers and a total of 96 people at the dinner and silent auction,” Robertson added. “It’s the most golfers and most at the dinner than at any previous year.” Funds raised will go to KidSport, an organization that aims to remove the financial barriers from kids who want to play in organized sports. “He was a very good friend,” Miller said of Durksen who passed away from cancer in 2008. “He was a good golfer and he was a really good friend. And he wanted to be involved with KidSport. That’s why we give it [the funds raised] to them.” When Durksen was ill, Robertson approached the family about the idea of a memorial golf tournament. They agreed it was a good match.
