Ridge woman injured in Kelowna shooting Was in car with slain gangster Jonathan Bacon by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter

Marjorie Lovatt is now living in a trailer after losing her life savings in scam that cost her $250,000. She can’t afford an apartment.

Life savings lost Maple Ridge man facing 13 fraud charges, suspected of bilking more than a million by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter

O

n a porch, outside her trailer, Marjorie Lovatt has stacked boxes head-high. As debts mount and collection agencies circle, the 89-year-old has been slowly peddling everything she owns at the Abbotsford flea market. “I’ve had to borrow to keep myself from going hungry,” said Lovatt, who sold Aunt Margie’s Fudge at the PNE for 55 years. The Maple Ridge senior is one of more than 40 people who say they

were scammed by Douglas Archie Clark, who police say posed as a retired member of the Canadian Navy to borrow more than a million dollars to pay for cancer treatment. Over two years, Lovatt claims she lent Clark $250,000, wiping out her life savings and eventually dipping into her pension. Clark now faces 13 counts of fraud, although Lovatt’s allegations are not part of the current charges. Lovatt said Clark, who she has known for 30 years, told her he needed the cash to pay for experimental treatments in the U.S. to fight cancer. Each treatment cost $3,000, he told her. He always promised he’d return the money, but had a tale of hard luck when it came time to pay back the cash, said Lovatt. See Senior, p5

Chuck Gale’s successful lawsuit led to a major police investigation.

A Maple Ridge woman wounded in a brazen weekend shooting in Kelowna has been left a quadriplegic. Friends of Leah Hadden-Watt confirmed the 21-year-old was injured by a bullet when a masked gunman fired at five people in a Porsche SUV in the parking lot of the Delta Grand Hotel on Sunday. The bullet shattered a vertebra and has left her paralysed. Red Scorpion kingpin Jonathan Bacon was Hadden-Watt killed in the shooting while Hells Angel Larry Amero, Independent Soldier James Riach and another woman in the SUV were injured. Riach fled the scene while the others remain in hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made but police are asking the public for information about a newer silvergreen Ford Explorer that matches the description of the getaway vehicle. On Twitter, a day after the shooting Kelsey Olson wrote: “leah’s a quadriplegic … I am so heartbroken. I don’t know what to do with myself.” On Tuesday, she tweeted “Stay strong, you’ll get through this.” Hadden-Watt is the niece of Mike “Spike” Hadden, who runs Haney Hawgs, a motorcycle shop in Hammond.

Locals growing some good eating Now you have to know how to produce a profit, as well as a crop, if you want to survive by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter

t’s 9 a.m. and the Davison family has been hard at work for hours. There are still boxes to unpack, display stands to set up, kitchen appliances to install, and furniture to arrange before the Golden Ears Cheeseworks officially opens on Tuesday. And, of course, there’s still the cheese to make. “I’ve had about two hours sleep,” says Emma Davison as she and her mother Lynn pull together the finishing touches on the Maple Ridge boutique cheese shop. With dwindling profit margins becoming the norm for smaller farms across the country, the Davisons are among many local farmers who have had to get creative to diversify their operations and stay profitable. The shop sits on the family’s 12acre farm on 128th Avenue, which has been in the family since 1902. Lynn and her husband Kerry still farm the land, growing cedar hedges, as well as silage feed for Kerry’s brother’s dairy farm next door. Four years ago the Davison’s came up with the idea to expand their farm operations to include cheesemaking, and open a retail store as a way to keep their farm profitable and include their daughters Emma and Jenna in the family business. “We were worried the hedging cedars would be too much work for the girls,” says Lynn. “It’s not something the girls seemed too interested in.” The family makes nine varieties of cheese, as well as fresh butter,

The cheddar will be aged from three months to six years. with the milk from the Davison dairy farm next door. By branching out to create artisanal value-added products, Emma hopes the farm will remain a going concern for years to come. “Farmers aren’t business people or marketers, but they have to be nowadays,” she says. Carving out a niche is made all the more important when one considers who small local farmers are competing against for consumer dollars. Much of the food that is produced for Canadian consumers comes from industrial mega-farms, owned by large corporations, notes Emma. According to Statistics Canada’s 2009 Farm Financial Survey, farms

in B.C. that collected less than $150,000 in revenue annually saw their average annual farm sales decrease from $58,413 in 2005 to $54,802 in 2009. Meanwhile, larger farming operations saw revenues increase over the same span. “They use the cheapest labour and the cheapest ingredients to make the cheapest product,” Emma says. “As a smaller farm we can’t really compete with their prices.” The Davison’s solution? Offer a high quality, one-of-a-kind product in a unique setting. The Golden Ears Cheeseworks is just as much about selling the rural lifestyle as it is about selling homemade cheeses, with it’s warm colours, folk art, and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the cheeses made on site, the shop will also feature local produce, and host cooking demonstrations. “We need to give people a reason to come down here,” Emma says. “We are offering an experience and we want people to come in here and feel like they are family.” Pitt Meadows blueberry farmer Sheila Martins is also hoping to market the rural lifestyle to city dwellers throughout the Lower Mainland. In total, Martin operates 12 hectares of farmland, four hectares of which is used to grow blueberries, with the remainder used to grow more than 500 different species of nursery plants. In addition to her farming operations, Martin has profited from the movie industry. Since 2003, eight movie productions have used her farm as a film-

ing location. Martin has also opened the doors of her farm to the public with her website www.farmhouselifestyle.com in an attempt to take advantage of the growing agri-tourism market. “We are living in a metropolitan area with millions of people who don’t have access to farms,” she says. “For many people, visiting a farm is a very enjoyable experience.” The public is invited to pick their own blueberries on the farm and picnic around a landscaped pond. Martin even brings in guest chefs for cooking demonstrations in the farm’s rustic farmhouse. See Farms, p 12

Slot machines at the Haney Bingo Plex are raking in money for its parent company. Great Canadian Gaming Corporation credits the installation of the 100 machines for boosting its quarterly revenue in B.C. by $1.1 million. For the second quarter of 2011, the company recorded revenues of $99.5 million, a $2.5-million increase from the second quarter of 2010. Great Canadian Gaming expanded the Haney Bingo Plex last year at a cost of about a million dollars, to make room for the slots. “Great Canadian’s community gaming centres have proven themselves as a source of growth in this otherwise consistent environment,” Ross J. McLeod, Great Canadian’s chairman and chief executive officer. “While our success at Maple Ridge is partly driven by Boulevard gaming patrons displaced by the construction adjacent to that property, our temporary gaming offerings in Maple Ridge have been well received and that market continues to develop.” The District of Maple Ridge gets 10 per cent of revenues from the slot machines and is expecting to earn at least $300,000 annually. The success of the Maple Ridge facility has prompted the company to purchase a bingo hall and land in Chilliwack, where it plans to spend $15 million on a new community gaming centre. Great Canadian Gaming also has plans for a new gaming centre in Maple Ridge, on Lougheed Highway at 227th Street. The site is currently being pre-loaded with soil to prepare it for construction. Construction is expected to take place over two years.

Car Care Families just had to do something to help with Cyril Barry

THE HOLIDAY TRIP It’s that time of year where your daily driver will become your transportation for the big “summer holidayâ€?. If ever there was an opportunity to prepare by planning ahead, this would be the time. There are many things to keep in mind when planning for an extended trip in your vehicle, the ďŹ rst of which is to get the vehicle thoroughly inspected by a certiďŹ ed auto technician. I am not referring to a tire shop, front end shop, brake shop or lube and oil shop. What you need to do is visit a full service auto repair shop and have an auto technician, one that knows the whole vehicle including all its subsystems and how they inter-act with each other, to check your vehicle. If you are worried it will cost more, remember the old saying, ‘you get what you pay for’. The reality is a good full service shop will cost you less in the long run, not to mention the convenience of one-stop shopping. There are other considerations when trip planning that is equally as important, but easy to forget at the last minute. Always take a ďŹ rst aid kit, a few basic tools, some ares and a ashlight with extra batteries. If you are leaving the province or country remember to prepare for different rules, regulations and local customs when it comes to driving in a different part of the world. Plan your trip so you arrive at your intended destination during normal business hours, this will make everybody’s life a lot easier, especially yours. Even though it’s the hot time of year you have to factor in the conditions of your drive. If you prepare yourself for a roadside breakdown on a mountain road, then you’re covered. Try to pack an extra heavy coat, gloves & boots, per occupant. If you ďŹ nd yourself on the side of that mountain road, late at night, and your car heater doesn’t work or you’re out of fuel, these items will take a bad situation and make it much better. If you are not familiar with your destination, get a map; there is all kinds of information on the internet if you take time to check it out. Not to mention the GPS on your Smart Cell Phone. If travelling south of the border, stick to name brand gas stations. Do your “rideâ€? a favour and buy medium grade US gasoline or better. The quality of gas in the States is not the same nor as consistent as Canadian gas. This is very important information if you are towing or driving a larger vehicle. Remember that you are on holidays – you are not driving to work. So slow down, get in the far right lane, relax and smell the roses. Do not impede big trucks: they rule the roadways worldwide. And remember that in the Excited States people carry guns, so it is not a good idea to make anyone angry while driving there.

Massive garage sale will help Feed the Children by A s hl ey B han contributor Eight Maple Ridge families are coming together to help raise money for the East African Drought Relief Fund to help African families desperate for food and water.

Senior from Front “He’d say, ‘Don’t worry about it, I’ll have it back on the weekend.’ Now it’s been two years.” Lovatt, whose husband died three years ago, now lives in a trailer on the property where they built their home. She can barely afford groceries and will have to declare bankruptcy. Declaring bankruptcy would mean losing her only asset – her cosy trailer. She used her last two pension cheques to repay the money she’d borrowed from friends. Last Christmas, outreach workers brought her food. “I can’t believe I was so stupid,” said Lovatt, scolding herself for believing Clark’s statements that included having to pay for his wife’s and colleague’s funerals, although Lovatt’s now found out they are both alive. “He really had me fooled. The soft spot in my heart got too soft, I suppose.” Lovatt then heard police issue a warning about Clark in June, alleging he was suspected of duping dozens for money. Ridge Meadows Mounties began investigating the 64-year-old three years ago after an old friend of his launched a complaint. Chuck Gale met Clark in the late 1970s and eventually went into business with him, running Bond Street Stationary in Maple Ridge, an office supply store. The pair drifted apart and Gale resumed his career as an engineer. In 2006 however, Clark showed up at Gale’s front door to tell him he was dying of cancer. “He needed these treatments,” Gale explained. “I had no reason to question it, so sure, I loaned him some bucks.” In eight separate loans, Gale says he lent Clark $23,000. But a year later, when the dates for repayment passed, Gale grew suspicious. His suspicions were confirmed when he ran into Clark’s wife, and asked her how Clark was doing. He then learned Clark did not suffer from cancer, had

Gale then started sniffing around and compiled a list of 40 people in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. When Gale took his complaint to police, he was initially told there wasn’t enough evidence for a criminal charge but was advised to pursue Clark in civil court. Gale filed a claim in Port Coquitlam Pro-

vincial Court and won a judgement in April 2010 for the amount that he lent Clark. That’s when police began taking his allegations seriously. “I’m one of the lucky ones because I got him to sign some promissory notes,” said Gale. “I had a paper trail which ultimately allowed me to go through the court system.” The investigation is now one of the largest fraud cases Ridge Meadows Mounties

have dealt with. Clark was charged in June with 13 counts of fraud, with more charges possible. He was arrested again in July after he failed to show up for a court appearance and remains in custody awaiting a bail hearing. “I’m just glad I stuck with it,” said Gale. • A trust fund has been set up for Marjorie Lovatt at TD Canada Trust .

Sometimes royal works, sometimes . .

T

he recent announcement of the change back to calling the navy, a navy and the air force an air force no doubt is welcomed by the veterans who served under the two branches, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force. It’s a symbolic gesture to honour the past and tradition as well as those serving now. But will those names serve into the future? Does Canada, increasingly multicultural, want to hang on to that particular title and tradition as it moves forward into the 21st Century? Do those titles, with the ties to the past, hold us back or strengthen us? A good comparison is the Royal Australian Navy or Royal Australian Air Force. When the outsider hears those names, what does he or she think? Wouldn’t just the Canadian Air Force. The Canadian Navy sound better? Perhaps this is one the royal label that might be better left off. The initiative also means the Canadian Army will be known simply as that, which for an historical reason is prevented from using the label. Which is just fine. That seems to fit better. Both services served admirably over the last century, from the First World War to the Battle of the Atlantic and the Battle of Britain, in the Second World War. As for the Canadian Army, it’s among the best in the world. Served in First and Second World Wars, kept the Chinese from invading Korea one night, and did yeoman’s duty in Afghanistan. That name just seems to sound better. The Canadian Army. It’s ours. – The News Tell us what you think @ www.mapleridgenews.com

Darwin’s law applies to bacteria Most of us have heard of the theory of “survival of the fittest” as the underpinning of the evolution. I am aware that many still reject that explanation for the stunning variety in nature, although most educated people accept Charles Darwin’s theory as a Health Care plausible hypothesis. Marco Terwiel Shortly after I had graduated from medical school and was still in training before the authorities had granted me a full license to practice, I got a real life lesson in the validity of Darwin’s premise; a lesson I will never forget. It was my turn to evaluate every arrival at the emergency department of the hospital where I trained. That meant interviewing and examining patients, ordering tests, arriving at a working diagnosis, and then calling my supervisor, who would confirm or modify the diagnosis. Subsequently, the attending physician would ask me to propose an appropriate treatment or solution of the presenting problem and I could not proceed without his approval. It was late in the afternoon when a 19-year-old student by the name of Steve was brought in by a friend. The friend told the admissions clerk he was concerned about Steve’s condition, that he had trouble breathing and could

Q

uestion of the week:

only take a few steps at a time. He was normally quite an athlete and had been well until that morning. In the course of the day he started to cough more and became increasingly short of breath. The clerk took one look at Steve and saw the young man was in deep trouble. She alerted both the nurse and me and while the friend looked after the paperwork, Steve was put on a stretcher and given oxygen. Until then, he had so much trouble breathing that he could not speak, but the oxygen helped quite a bit and Steve could answer some questions. The evening before he had gone out for a run and was sweating when he got back home. Just before he wanted to go in, two friends stopped by and they chatted for a while outside. There was a bit of a cold breeze and he felt chilly before he went in. He had slept well but when he woke up he had a bit of cough and thought he had caught a cold. As the day progressed he got worse. Even though the oxygen helped, he looked quite ill, had a high fever and coughed incessantly, but was unable to cough up any phlegm. When I put my stethoscope to his chest to listen to his lungs, there wasn’t a spot where his lungs sounded normal. Within minutes we had arranged for an X-ray of his chest which revealed an ominous picture. Both lungs looked as if they had been filled with snowballs. That could only mean one thing – and that was staphylococcus pneumonia.

For a number of years we had used penicillin as the cure-all for most infections, including pneumonias. We classify bacteria in gram-positive and gramnegative organisms and until the mid-50s we could kill virtually all gram-positive bacteria with penicillin. We knew there were many kinds of bacteria, but we did not know that not all staphylococcus bacteria were the same. Some were stronger than others and the strongest ones survived when exposed to penicillin. Once all the other bacteria had been knocked off by the penicillin, these strong ones could multiply with impunity. And multiply they did – and became a real menace for people who became infected with this particular strain of bacteria. It took a few years to develop a new antibiotic that could deal with this resistant staphylococcus, but until then, many people succumbed. Unfortunately, those new antibiotics were not available when Steve developed the resistant staphylococcus pneumonia and by midnight, he died in spite of our best efforts. I will never be able to erase the image of this promising young man struggling for breath and slipping away, while we could do nothing to prevent it. It was then I realized that Darwin’s theory applies to bacteria just as much as it did to the flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands.

How could mayor, council disagree? From: cb, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Time to review politicians’ pay (The News, Aug. 17). Very well written George. I don’t see how anyone including the mayor and councillors could disagree with your reasoning.

Back yard chickens will bring pests

HST is the best for public good EDITOR, THE NEWS:

My vote has been cast and now I await to see if the voters of B.C. cut off their noses to spite their faces. The reasons I have heard to get rid of the HST are emotional or political – not what is best. People are us-

As a teacher, I’m obviously not a fan of Gordon Campbell or Christy Clark or any government that shows disrespect to education or health issues. However, what is best for the province? So yes people, if the HST is

gone, your coffee and eating out will be cheaper, but your children will pay for it with an already inadequately funded education system, having even less. This will also be true for health care. NINA FOWELL MAPLE RIDGE

Tax breaks to super rich in U.S. don’t work EDITOR, THE NEWS:

From: cb, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Back yard chicken coops pitched for Maple Ridge (The News, Aug. 17). In a perfect world it sounds like a good idea. The farms that produce freerange eggs have strict health guidelines and still disease breaks out here and there. Stores that sell free-range eggs have health inspectors to make sure everyone obeys health rules. It’s very strict commercially. They will attract all sorts of animals and vermin, not to mention the noise and smell.

ing it as a political bandwagon to get new voters, to show Gordon Campbell we don’t like him or as a temper tantrum because the government didn’t show the citizens respect in the manner in which they brought it in.

According to U.S. billionaire Warren Buffet during the 1980s and 1990s, the rich paid far higher taxes in the U.S. than they do today. Yet 40 million jobs were added

during that same period. Since then, lower tax rates have created less employment by the same economic group. Does this not debunk the theory that the rich should

pay less because they create employment? Should not the argument be made that they should be made to pay much more? This would then provide the incentive they need to

create jobs in order to regain lost income as they are required to pay their fair shares of taxes here and around the world. BARRY BENTLEY MAPLE RIDGE

Re: Time to review politicians’ pay, (The News, Aug. 17). Well George, I couldn’t agree more with you. If truckers can keep a detailed log-book of their every move, on-duty, off-duty,

and locations for each, I see no reason why council and mayor should not do the same. With the salaries, they have voted for themselves, that’s not asking for too much. Let the public be the watchdog.

I think this would be an excellent start, after they graciously accepted a 53-per -cent pay raise, and just voted themselves a 13-per-cent raise over two years. Exactly what are the qualifications for council and

mayor positions, with our mayor now pulling in more than $100,000 a year, plus perks? Yes, a detailed logbook for him and his council, immediately. RICH SHUPAC MAPLE RIDGE

In total, a distance of 2,235 km of shorelines was cleaned up and more than 98,071 kg in waste was removed. The top five litter items found included 227,830 cigarette butts, 83,660 food wrappers, 55,880 plastic bags, 55,443 bottle caps and lids and 28,755 disposable cutlery and dishes.

Kanaka Creek Regional Park in Maple Ridge, considered a gem by locals, is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. A week’s worth of data collected during The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup last year revealed roughly 3,200 kg of waste was removed from the shorelines of the creek, putting the park in second place on the Shoreline Cleanup’s list of Canada’s dirtiest shorelines. “That’s shocking. I find that really hard to swallow,” Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said. “I’m just shocked at the number, particularly over such a short period of time. “People need to respect this gift that’s been given to us. We live in a great little corner of the world and it’s disturbing that people think so little of our environment that they’ll dump everything into the water. It’s disrespectful because Kanaka Creek is a jewel and we need to look after it,” Daykin added. Coun. Linda King agrees, “I think it’s heartbreaking. The park is such a precious watershed area and I find it very discouraging that our residents and other visitors wouldn’t be more respectful of that local environment.” The cleanup, taking place every September, is the largest direct action conservation program in the country and aims to promote a better understanding of shoreline litter issues by getting Canadians to rehabilitate shoreline areas. Daykin has participated in the past and hopes more people will volunteer to keep their local shorelines clean. “The last one I did was along Alouette River down in Maple Ridge Park and I was embarrassed and disgusted at what people turf along the riverbank,” Daykin said. “There were clothes, seat cushions, and the most disturbing thing was the amount of plastic bags filled with dog waste. “Within a half an hour we had three dozen

Shooting from Front Hadden could not be reached for comment as he is out of town on vacation. Meanwhile, Ridge Meadows Mounties and police departments across the province have been asked to be “on alert.” “There is a heightened awareness of gangsters and the danger associated with them,” said Ridge Meadows Insp. Dave Fleugel. “We work in concert with the Provincial Intelligence Centre and the gang task force, who share information on gangsters that may travel into our area. “Our officers have been made aware that the potential for retaliation is high.” For close to a year, the Lower Mainland gang task force keeping tabs on tension and “volatility” within criminal organizations that fuel the drug trade in B.C. “That heightened alert has just been brought to the forefront because of what happened in Kelowna,” said Sgt. Shinder Kirk, whose team is providing resources to investigators in Kelowna but not directly involved in investigating. In 2008, the gang task force publicly warned acquaintances or associates of gang members that they could be targets. “The broader tragedy is individuals, male or female, that are associates, have been caught up in the violence,” said Kirk. “If you look back there was an unwritten rule that girlfriends and wives were offlimits. “Now there’s been a shift in the paradigm and they are just as much targets as men are.” – With files from Black Press

Farms from p3 Martin believes that if farms are going to continue to be profitable, farmers need to get creative. “Farming has to encompass more than just the planting and harvesting,” she says. “It has to be sustainable, not just environmentally, but economically as well.” With profit margins slim, a bad season can wipe out farmers without different revenue streams. “It’s tough for farmers to make ends meet,” says Martin. Martin says she also plans to add value-added products, such as organic fruit wines and frozen berries, in an effort to create a year-round revenue stream. Having a diverse revenue stream can help limit financial exposure to poor weather or disease. “This year has been terrible with the weather,” says Martin. “It rained for eight months, so crops are late, and there’s the risk of fungal infections.” Coupled with overproduction in the US, 2011 has hit many farmers in the pocket book.

Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS

Brad Hopcott stands in the corn at Meadows Maze on Wednesday. However, having a number of different revenue streams has helped Martin somewhat mitigate the economic damage. Martin hopes to see more of an effort at the municipal level to support local agri-tourism. “Agri-tourism is not well represented in Pitt Meadows compared to other areas of the Fraser Valley,” she says. “It is a viable stream of farming and well-represented everywhere else.” Like many farms, Mar-

tin’s is a family run business. Her two daughters, both university graduates, work on the farm. If farming is going to remain economically viable, Martin says, there needs to be more done to reach the next generation of farmers. According to Agriculture Canada, the average age of those working in the farming nationally is 51 years old, and fewer than 23,000 people under the age of 35 are employed in farming. “I think education is

large part of that,” Martin says. However, few will pursue farming as a career if there is no money in it. “Farmers have to diversify their revenue options if they want to survive,” Martin says. Brad Hopcott is 25 years-old and sees a bright future for smaller independent farms. His family have been farming in Pitt Meadows since 1932, when the family bought a dairy farm along Old Dewdney Trunk Road. See Farms, p13


www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Friday, August 19, 2011 -- 13

All about quality she says. “Everything at the market has been picked that morning or the day before.” You can also talk directly to the farmer who grows the vegetables. Anywhere from 40 to 60 vendors take part in the market every weekend. Of those vendors, 80 per cent sell locallygrown produce and meat. If people in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge want to continue living amongst the pastoral farms that surround the community, they need to start supporting those local farms, says Emma Davison However, more could be done by various levels of government to help support smaller farms remain profitable, she contends. Although numerous provincial and federal programs exist to assist farmers through training or subsidies, navigating the system can be onerous. “The bureaucracy of the government is difficult to deal with,” says Lynn Davison. “It’s a huge process trying to find what’s out there. It’s like trying to navigate a spider’s web.” Emma says she would like to see a resource guide or a person farmers can contact to help them find out just what they are eligible for. “Farmers need to spending their time out in the field, not at a computer,” she says.

Farms from p12 Hopcott himself started working on the family farm full time once he graduated high school, and believes the next generation of farmers will have to be creative to remain profitable, but opportunities abound. Today, the family raises beef cattle, cranberries, corn, and number of other crops, and sells them through their butcher shop and grocery store. The family also operates Meadows Maze, a corn field maze tourist attraction, complete with petting zoo, hay rides, and kid’s play park. “It’s hard to compete with larger farms on the basis of price,” says Hopcott. “So we compete on the basis of quality.” The beef the Hopcotts raise is hormone-free, anti-biotic-free and grain-fed. Like many local farmers, the Hopcotts are hitching their wagon to the growing local food movement, which has helped awaken an interest in many urban and suburbanites about where they get their food from. The growing market for locally-produced goods has been a boon for many farms in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows as consumers in Vancouver seek out food grown close to home. A growing venue for so-called “locavores” are farmers’ markets, which have been growing in popularity across the Lower Mainland. Last year, the weekly Haney Farmers’ Market expanded to add a second weekly market in Pitt Meadows. Market manager Eileen Dwillies said consumers are drawn to the market because they can get fresh, local produce at reasonable prices. “Grocery stores use weeks-old produce, they keep it refrigerated or on ice so it doesn’t spoil,”

We hear pencil cases are all the rage these days.

Greater Van. could face water shortage

([SR

Growing population requires action Water from p14 Not all Metro cities back the idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply a scam to make the consumer pay more money,â&#x20AC;? says Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan. He said the provincial government has repeatedly pressed Metro cities to adopt water metering so private ďŹ rms can â&#x20AC;&#x153;satisfy a phoney needâ&#x20AC;? and proďŹ t from the policy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work,â&#x20AC;? Corrigan said, adding thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no solid evidence that water savings justify the steep costs of metering. He puts water meters to reduce waste in the same category as smart meters to block power theft by grow-ops and TransLinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s installation of turnstiles to block fare cheaters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It preys on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fear of being ripped off,â&#x20AC;? Corrigan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you think someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ripping you off, no cost is too much to stop that.â&#x20AC;? Most cities, such as Maple Ridge, require water meters for multifamily and commercial buildings. But several are moving to require meters in new single detached houses or that they be added when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a major renovation. Some charge high ďŹ&#x201A;at rate fees that create an incentive for households to voluntarily go metered and cut consumption. Langley City and West Vancouver meter all homes while Surrey and Richmond now have most of their detached houses on water meters. Metering does deter waste, according to Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew, who sits on Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People conserve more,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When municipalities switch to metering, consumption is reduced by about 20 per cent or more.â&#x20AC;? Area residents might think water is abundant in Metro Vancouver, particularly during the rains of winter. But with the population growing by 35,000 a year, the region is steadily closing in on the limits of what it can deliver at peak demand periods in the summer. The plan warns climate change may bring longer, drier summers and smaller mountain snowpacks, increasing stress on the water system.

3LWW0HDGRZV)DPLO\5HFUHDWLRQ&HQWUH Contributed

Reservoirs may have to be expanded to meet demand. Metro has already banned evening lawn sprinkling in favour of early mornings only, when demand is lower. The region also charges member cities a higher wholesale water rate of 64 cents per cubic metre in the summer than the off-peak rate of 56 cents the rest of the year. (Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to each city how those costs are passed on to residents.) Other conservation steps â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from low-flow appliances to the use of rain barrels for garden water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are also

advocated. But a day of reckoning is coming when more water will be needed than Metro can now supply. The Coquitlam Lake reservoir would be the easiest way to open the regional tap wider. Right now, Metro gets 10 per cent of the lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discharge, while the rest is reserved for B.C. Hydro to generate power at Buntzen Lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very large reservoir with a very deep catchment area and could easily extend service for Metro Vancou-

ver for many decades to come, just by increasing the share that goes to Metro from 10 to 20 per cent,â&#x20AC;? Drew said. But that would require Hydroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consent and Metro would presumably have to pay to compensate the utility for the energy it could no longer produce. Depending on the price tag, it might be cheaper to pursue alternatives, such as building small new dams to increase storage in small alpine lakes high in the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watersheds.

Open House JACKSON ROAD BULK WATER FILL STATION You are invited to attend an Open House to view and discuss information associated with the new Bulk Water Fill Station on Jackson Road at 106th Avenue. The new ďŹ ll station is intended to replace the existing stand pipe on 102nd Avenue near 244th Street.

Hit the road packing protection. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soaking up the last days of summer on a road trip, or a quick jaunt across the border for groceries or gas, make sure your car insurance is ready for the trip too. Here are a couple of things you can do to be sure: Understand your coverage limits and deductibles. Know what coverages and deductibles you carry for your vehicle. Refer to your insurance documents and ensure you have the following coverages:

purchase a minimum of $3,000,000. You may wish to increase this before you leave. Proof of Insurance - Keeping your documents with you. Having adequate car insurance canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help unless you keep your documents with you. When crossing the border, you may be asked to produce your car registration to show proof of ownership. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also helpful to have on hand, your documents and a 24-hour e m e r g e n c y claim telephone number from your insurance company should you be involved in an accident.

Lastly, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to pack your travel insurance, even for a quick trip across the border, to avoid financial devastation if you fall sick or have an accident while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re away.

Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to parent the parents Elderly often the victims of many scams The young and the elderly share a common characteristic; they are the most vulnerable segments of our population. In parenting, we are always vigilant of the activities of our children and since they have limited access to things like financial instruments, our greatest concern is generally their personal safety. I referred in the past to the risks posed to young people through abusive and predatory practices on social media and, quite simply, their inability to consistently make good decisions. The elderly, on the other hand, are vulnerable to both physical harm and financial fraud. Look at the majority of victims in just about any white-collar crime, phone scam and now computer scam and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find retirees in large numbers. Naturally, many elderly are subject to physical and emotional abuse at the hands of their family, unscrupulous caregivers and petty criminals who perceive them as unable to defend themselves â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thus easy targets.

More than 47,000 mattresses or box springs have been recycled this year since January, when Metro Vancouver banned them from being dumped in the garbage. That’s equivalent to a stack taller than Mount Everest – or a pile that could fill B.C. Place – that might otherwise end up in the landfill. Residents now pay a $20 recycling fee if they bring a mattress or box spring to a Metro waste transfer station, although they usually pay less by going directly to a mattress recycler or by having an old mattress recycled when they buy a new one from a local retailer. Three mattress recycling companies now employ more than 45 people, tearing old beds apart to recover metal, wood, cotton and foam to be processed and reused. A Metro spokesman said it’s not yet clear whether the new fee to get rid of mattresses has led more people to dump them illegally. Surrey did initially experience significantly more illegal dumping of mattresses after the change, according to Gerry McKinnon, the city’s manager of operations. The city responded with an advertising drive to ensure residents know they can arrange free mattress pickup through the Surrey’s large item pickup program. The city sends the mattresses collected to

May I introduce you to Jesus? For many, faith is just not part of their lives Our Canadian culture may have known something of the Bible, God and Jesus Christ in years past. But things have changed. My parent’s generation had many who did not believe in Jesus, but their parents had them go to church so they made their children go, even though their belief was dead. That next generation (my generation) saw the hypocrisy of going, or in many cases just being sent, so they have not had their children go to church, read a Bible, pray or really do anything about Jesus or God. They aren’t mad at God or Jesus, faith is just not part of their life. What they now speak of is just their own made up ideas about God, nothing of what God has said about Himself in the Bible. Our schools have children tour buildings of various faith beliefs

THE NEWS/home&gardening Gloriosa daisies rescue dismal summer The begonias have bombed, the zinnias are zapped, the lobelia lopsided, the alyssum annihilated, the geraniums garburated [sic], the nicotiana nullified … or to phrase this phenomena in the everyday vernacular … it’s been a really bad year for our summer flowers. First they drowned in Gardening Mike Lascelle the seemingly endless rains and then when it finally did get sunny, the hot weather toasted their powderymildewed leaves to a crisp - leaving us with gaping black holes in our gardens that scream failure every time we walk by and envision what should have been. In desperation, we go from garden centre to garden centre, trying to pick through the meagre remains of the season’s last annuals, in hopes of finding something to fill the empty space in both our hearts and landscape. Then we see them, hundreds of beautiful yellow, orange, gold and bronze daisies – all in full glorious bloom. Then we ask that one question that turns most of us away from these late summer beauties: are they perennial? The honest answer is no. Rudbeckia hirta or Gloriosa daisies are at best biennial or short-lived perennials that tend to rot out in our wet winters. If you have really good drainage and full sun in your garden, they may thrive for a few years but they will also usually self-seed themselves, so that you can enjoy the July to October blooms from year to year. The trick is to deadhead the spent blossoms (to prolong the flowering season) while also leaving a few seedheads to mature. These drought-tolerant plants thrive in the late summer heat and there’s a variety to fill just about any hole in your garden – from the containers on the patio, to the tired perennial border, and even the failed summer flower bed by the front window. Gloriosa daisies have been with us for so many years now, that some of the older favourites such as Becky, Rustic Dwarfs and Goldilocks can be a little hard to find. That being said, there is a whole new generation of Rudbeckia hirta just wait-

At only 50 cm tall, it works well as a solitary container specimen. • Prairie Sun – Large single blooms of gold with lemon yellow tips and a green cone make this Gloriosa daisy stand out from the crowd. It is a tall form (80 cm), so it’s probably best used in the border. • Cherokee Sunset – A mixed strain with large double flowers ranging from yellow, gold, orange and brown, with some bicolours. At 70 cm tall, it’s a great replacement for those failed dahlias.

• Toto Gold – Floriferous, compact plants with small single blooms of pure gold, surrounding a brown cone – all of the Toto series (including Rustic and Lemon) are your best choices to stuff into those late summer voids in our container gardens. • Autumn Colors – The bicolour petals of this unusual variety come in a full range of autumn tones – including orange, bronzered, gold and yellow. This mid-height (60 cm) cultivar is best used to flesh-out flagging perennial beds due to the diverse flower colours. • Indian Summer – An award-winning strain with huge golden daisies, contrasting a dark brown cone - it is taller than most Gloriosa daisies (90cm) but that makes it a great cut flower or filler between medium-sized shrubs. • Marmalade – Abundant golden-yellow single flowers that really stand out against the near-black cone – its modest height (60cm) and large blooms make it ideal for mass planting. I’ve added two new stories – A Bear on the Roof, and Something Worse on the Ground and Fear of Flying – to my garden blog at soulofagardener.wordpress.com.

Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Parks & Leisure Services in cooperation with the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Sport & Outdoor Recreation Council are hosting this one-of-a-kind event. Booths in the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre will showcase the multitude of sport, recreation and sport funding organizations in our communities.

On June 26 the Maple Ridge Garden Club hosted “A Country Garden Tour” of seven private gardens, raising over $9000 in support of The Sunshine Foundation “Dreams for Kids.” This event would not have been possible without the help from corporate and private citizens in our community.

Admission is free so come on out and find out what sport or recreational organization you could be part of ! For more information contact Joanne Georgelin at jgeorgelin@mapleridge.ca 604-467-7321 or contact Perry Bateson at familyfun@yuens.ca.

Every year Yuen’s Family Martial Arts host a day filled with fun, excitement and some good old fashion common sense seminars. This year we will start with a sharing and caring seminar for the awesome little 4 year olds. Set in a game and play format we will show these little folks how to share, take turns, be polite and focus on the tasks at hand. Moms and Dads bring those cameras, the pictures are priceless. For the new schoolers 5 – 6 year olds we have a fun basic safety seminar focused on making the right choices around strangers. For our 7 – 12 year olds we will focus on appropriate handling of tough situations on the playground. There are some great strategies for children to learn to make the school year fun and less stressful. The fourth high energy seminar will be in a Mixed Martial Arts setting for our teens and young adults, providing self defense skills in the unlikely situation of a fight or attack. Come on down and join us. To register for one or more of these seminars go online at yuens.ca/openhouse or for more information give us a call at (604) 460 – 0046.

THE NEWS/business Rotary open to youth Service club expanding its ways to give back to community by A s hley Bh a n contributor The Haney Rotary Club has announced a new division to their list of club services. New Generations, which was created specifically for youth development, will aid young people looking to become future rotarian members. The rotary now offers programs to the community under five categories including: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service and New Generations. The new division was created to acknowledge the positive changes implemented by youth and young adults who’re involved in leadership development ac-

tivities, community and international services and exchange programs that encourage cultural understanding and world peace. “We know the importance of youth and that category needs focus,” Keesha Rosario, rotary member and chair of New Generations, said. “Youth have so much more to give. They have great ideas, they’re involving and they’re leading edge when it comes to what’s going on socially.” “It’s incredible to bring them together in the fold so that we’re actually working with them and mentoring them,” she added. “What this service does is keep participants on track to become rotarians.” According to Rosario, the rotary club is undergoing a transformation to appeal to a younger demographic. In the past, the rotary was filled with older male mem-

“What this service does is keep participants on track to become rotarians.” Keesha Rosario New Generations bers but now more younger men and women are hopping on board and Rosario credits new rotary president Scott Charlton for that. “He’s been doing fantastic. Our club has diversified from a very senior demographic to recruiting members who are in many different age brackets,” she said. “I think Scott is a real breath of fresh air when it comes to linking the older generation and the younger generation.” “He’s bringing it all together to be more innovative. In the last

month, he’s been trying to pull different things together and trying to bring us more in line to make us more innovative than in the past.” Although the two year rotary member, credits Charlton with diversifying the club she hasn’t forgotten about past president Brenda Exner’s efforts to attract younger rotarians. “She was fantastic. With her leadership, we actually had quite a few new rotarians, so we actually diversified a lot during Brenda’s reign too,” she said. For Rosario, the club has become a tight knit family of mentors, even though there are roughly 50 members. The club offers children and adults from all walks of life the chance to pull together for the greater good of the community it serves.

Realtor earns top Vancouver award Maple Ridge realtor Harvey Exner has received a nod of recognition from his peers, receiving the Professional Excellence Award earlier this year from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. Exner, who manages Macdonal Realty in Maple Ridge and Coquit-

lam, was chosen from eight candidates. He started in the business in 1979 and served on the board’s task force in 1992 that developed a system that represented buyers’ rights – still in use today. He was manager of member services at the board between

1996 and 2005, where he wrote about professional ethics in a series called the eXner Files. He also helped develop the current system that provides realtor access to the MLS and served on the B.C. Real Estate Association’s standard forms committee.

He’s also been in an instructor for realtor education programs. “Harvey has dedicated himself to promoting the highest level of professionalism amongst his peers and within the real estate profession,” said Rosario Setticasi, real estate board president.

That’s a paddlin’ Del Muench, of the Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club, drives for the finish line in the juvenile men’s K1 500m race at the B.C. canoe and kayak championships at Burnaby Lake on Saturday.

Pitt golfer toughs out back injury to win title by L arr y Pru n e r staff reporter Most 32-year-olds with a back injury would have simply stopped playing. Gudmund Lindbjerg is no 32-year-old. And he’s no quitter. Lindbjerg, 62, battled through a strained back he suffered after swinging into a rock buried in a sand trap on the second hole at Squamish Valley Golf Club and a first-round 81 last Tuesday to rally from from four strokes back going into Thursday’s final 18 holes and win an amazing fourth straight B.C. Senior Men’s Championship for players aged 55 to 64 by a single shot.

Lindbjerg hit the ball out of bounds, took a triple bogey, strained his already bad back and considered packing it in for the tourney. Instead, he kept playing – and brilliantly. “I ate a few Advils and played through it,” said Lindbjerg, who fielded interviews from his native Denmark where his feat piqued the interest of his countrymen. A Pitt Meadows Golf Club member, Lindbjerg recovered enough last Wednesday to fire a 71, then finished up the next day with a sizzling 69 for a five-over-par 221 total to edge Nanaimo’s Tony Hatchwell at 222 for the title. Surrey’s Earl MacPherson and 67-year-old Ron Petersen of Coquitlam –– another Pitt Meadows

club member –– tied for third, both at nine-over 229. Petersen, 67, also won the Super Senior Divison. Lindbjerg said the victory was doubly rewarding given he heard whispers from some fellow-shooters after his shaky first round that he was using his back injury as an excuse to fold. “I’m not the type of person who wants to back down,” said Lindbjerg, who is set to compete in the Canadian senior men’s championships next Monday through Friday (Aug. 22-26) in Twin Rivers, Nfld. “I didn’t shoot an 81 because I wanted to.” A big fan of PGA Tom Watson who, like Lindbjerg, is 62, the latter attributes his remarkable

success four years running at the provincials to experience and hard work. The virtual scratch golfer plays pretty much daily, adding: “My wife’s thinks something’s wrong when I don’t play.” “When you’ve been there before, you know how to win,” he continued. “You just have to keep focused on each hole and keep within yourself. You can’t lose it. I do a lot of prep work around the greens … chipping and putting. Especially in Squamish, you have to have a short game to manage that course.” A golfer has won the B.C. senior men’s crown three times before, but not in a row and never four. Until now, courtesy of Gudmund Lindbjerg.

Bantam A Royals use a little voodoo to claim provincial championship S taff Repor ter sports@mapleridgenews.com The Ridge Meadows Royals baseball team borrowed a trick from Team Canada’s gold medalwinning 2002 Olympic hockey team as they went undefeated as hosts of the B.C. Minor Bantam A Baseball Championships earlier this month.

After being plagued by losses all season at the Pitt Meadows Athletics Park No. 1 diamond, manager Les Giles said the team decided to employ some voodoo to help dispel the curse. Inspired by the Golden Loonie that was placed at centre ice in Salt Lake City, Giles had the entire team sign a baseball and bury it at second base. The Royals went on to play three unde-

feated games at the diamond en route to their provincial title. “The ball has been retrieved and sits on my desk at home,” said Giles. The Royals opened the tournament with a 9-2 win over Vernon. Derrick Adams was named the game’s MVP after pitching five innings while allowing just two runs. In their second game of the weekend, the Royals came from

behind in the top of the seventh inning to score two runs to beat the Cloverdale Spurs 2–1. Game MVP Chris Bailey pitched five innings to shut down the Spurs offence. Next up for the Royals was Tsawwassen, with Devon Draper earning MVP honors with a grand slam to tie the game at 9-9 and force an extra inning. Clayton Skipper scored Austin

Demeule from third base on a squeeze bunt to win the game. Justice Eely pitched five innings to stymie the Chilliwack Cougars while Draper added a solo home run to give the Royals the 8–2 victory and first place in their round robin pool. On Aug. 7, the Royals faced Vancouver in the tournament semifinal. See Royals, p40

Sports expo one-stop shop for parents by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter If you’ve ever wondered what sports are available for your kids in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, the first-ever Sports and Recreation Expo is the perfect place to find out. There will be 26 local sports organizations taking part in the expo, which takes place at the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

on Sunday, Aug. 28. Booths will be set-up to showcase the multitude of sport, recreation and sport funding organizations in our communities. There will also be interactive demonstrations, activities, prize draws, and an opportunity to register for youth sports programs. The event is being organised by Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Parks and Leisure Services in cooperation with the Maple Ridge

experience

life in their shoes Call Jane to schedule your personal visit 604.764.8877 Maple Ridge Seniors Village offers a complete “Campus of Care”, enabling our residents to “Age in Place” Ask about our Trial Stay

The Hero In You® education program offers a series of FREE curriculum-linked lesson plans (grades 4-7) aimed to motivate children to find the champion within themselves. In addition, teachers can request a FREE classroom presentation delivered in-person by a Hall of Fame athlete!

Attention Teachers:

If you are a principal, teacher or parent and would like to book a presentation for your classroom, call Michael Markowsky (604) 647-7449 or visit www.heroinyou.ca to download lesson plans.

and Pitt Meadows Sport and Outdoor Recreation Council. “We found that many community members don’t know what recreation opportunities exist locally other than baseball, soccer, and hockey,” said organizer Joanne Georgelin, with parks and leisure services. “So we wanted to open the event to all the different groups and organizations here. “We’re hoping this event grows exponentially in the years to come.” Getting kids involved in sports at an early age has positive health benefits for them when they become adults, Georgelin. “We know that if we can get kids involved with youth sports, they

are more likely to stay active for life,” she said. The event is also great place to discover what resources exist for lowincome families. “Maybe you can afford the registration costs, but can’t afford the gear,” said Georgelin. “There’s organizations that can help with that.” The event is free for the public to attend. • For more information contact Joanne Georgelin at jgeorgelin@mapleridge.ca 604467-7321.

Sports Expo • Sunday, Aug, 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre.

Royals beat Spurs in final Royals from p39 Vancouver jumped out to a 4-2 lead in the fifth inning, but the Royals answered with three runs in the bottom of the seventh with Alejandro Torres, Tristan Reed and Draper all hitting singles, while Demeule hit a double to score the winning run and garner MVP honors. The championship final saw a rematch against Cloverdale and Clayton Skipper drew the MVP award when he combined with the pitching efforts of Draper and Bailey to beat the Spurs 7–3. Also playing for the Royals were Trevor Reed, Joe Soderholm, Joe Sheridan and Jared Clark.

There are things we don’t want to happen, but have to accept. Things we don’t want to know, but have to learn.

And people we can’t live without, but have to let go. We long for how life used to be and weep for the life you were supposed to embrace. You are our inspiration, Col. We love you forever and miss you always. Love Mom (Rita), Dad (Michael), & brothers Matt & Chris.

BIRTHS

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS

Passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 6th, 2011 in her 99th year. Loving mother of John, mother-in-law of Susan, grandmother of Sarah, Christopher, David and Katherine and great grandmother of Hunter William David. Predeceased by her loving husband Frederick deCourcey Evans of Maple Ridge and her parents William Williams and Vivian Williams (nee Moore). Fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews, family and friends. Eileen graduated from Duke of Connaught High School in New Westminster prior to entering Nursing School at VGH where she graduated in 1932. The following year, Eileen enrolled at UBC where she completed a Degree in Applied Science (Nursing) graduating from the ‘new’ UBC Point Grey campus. Eileen worked as a Public Health nurse in Richmond prior to enrolling in the Cdn. Army in 1942. Following her joining the services, she worked at the Military Hospital in Victoria. Eileen sailed overseas in January, 1944 and was stationed in Basingstoke, UK where she nursed burn victims of WW2 being returned from the ‘front’. Eileen married another Canadian, her loving husband Fred in 1945 in Basingstoke. In 1945, Eileen returned to Canada with Fred returning in 1946. Eileen and Fred’s only son John deCourcey was born in July, 1949. Eileen supported her husband’s career with the Imperial Bank of Canada where they spent years in each of Calgary, Lethbridge, Edmonton, Fort William (now the Lakehead) and ultimately in Toronto. In 1965, following Fred’s early retirement from the bank, the family relocated to Haney, B.C., where they acquired and operated Haney Tire. Following their retirement, Fred and Eileen enjoyed their years in Haney Pioneer Village always looking forward to their winters in Mexico. Eileen was a joyful person who enjoyed meeting people wherever life took her. She always enjoyed her church service no matter the city in which she lived. She especially enjoyed the Christmas Bazaar and creating her many handicrafts. Having lived only months shy of a century, Eileen greeted each day with a smile and the determination to accomplish yet another task in her day. Eileen’s family would like to thank both Dr. Chapman, who always ‘looked in’ on Eileen and the many ‘angels’ at Bailey House in Maple Ridge who took such great care of her in her last remaining years. Funeral Services for Eileen were held on Tuesday, August 9th at St. John the Divine Anglican Church with cremation to follow. Garden Hill Funeral Homes took care of all arrangements. Donations to St. John the Divine Anglican Church in Maple Ridge would be appreciated by the family.

Thea Scott r0s With family at her side, Thea Scott - a truly gracious lady - went to be with her Lord on Saturday, August 13, 2011. Thea was born in Kowloon Hong Kong and was quite the world traveler in her young life. She was in the Philippines during WW 2 and it was there that she met Dave Scott. They were married in 1945 and their three oldest children were born in the Philippines. After coming to Canada, Thea became a much-loved addition to the Scott family. Dave and Thea had two more children and settled down to a Canadian life. Raising five children required a fi rm hand but also a sense of humour and Thea often surprised those around her with her dry wit and incredible insight. Thea was a caring member of the Baptist church – a Sunday School teacher, she also served on many of the church committees. For many years she owned a Christian book store in Maple Ridge. Thea remained an avid traveler throughout her life and visited countries all over the world - England, Israel and China just to name a few. Later on, she became an active resident at Fraserview. In the last few years, Thea lived at Royal Crescent Garden - made some wonderful friends and always spoke very highly of the staff. Her time there was greatly enhanced by the loving care of her family, in particular the dedication of her daughter Catherine. Thea leaves an incredible legacy and will be much missed by a large family including: Her five children Catherine, David (Ruth), Susan, Mary (Jerry) and Ed (Debbi); Grandchildren: Ian, David and Karen, Victor, Casey and Reba, Laura, Leilani and Shawn, Renee and Jennifer, Amanda, Hilary and Keelie; Great Grandchildren: Kiriva, Shauna and Ryan, Chelsea, Joey and Kiera, Jasper, Ian and Charlotte, Isabelle and Chloe; Great great grandchildren: Ben and Alyssa; ...and many many nieces and nephews! She wrote this message for family and friends: “I shall be waiting for you” and added “As for me it is good to be near God” from Psalm 73. Thea joins all those who have gone before her and we hope they are celebrating a wonderful reunion. Thanks for everything Mother – go with our love - you will be missed. Celebration of Life Service: 1pm Friday August 19, 2011 at the Baptist Church 22155 Lougheed Highway Maple Ridge. In lieu of flowers, donations to McKenney Creek Hospice would be appreciated. Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.gardenhill.ca
