Schools cope with influx of students Albion elementary still had to turn some away by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter

Teachers, principals, and administrators have had their hands full as thousands of students made their way back to school this week. Superintendent Jan Unwin said schools this year have seen relatively few issues as most parents have been able to enroll their children in the elementary school of their choice. “I don’t want to jinx myself, but everything’s been really good, going really smoothly so far,” Unwin said Thursday. At Albion elementary, parents were lined up outside prior to school opening on Tuesday in the hopes of registering their children in kindergarten at the school. “We have a good reputation, so a lot of parents want to send their children here,” said Albion principal Ron Lanzarotta.

Getting vandalism message Incident reports down in local school district by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter The first week back at school has traditionally meant an onslaught of vandalism and graffiti for many local schools. However, this year, students appear to be bucking the trend. “It’s still early to tell, but the preliminary numbers seem to indicate

the trend hasn’t repeated itself,” said Wayne Jefferson, the district’s secretary-treasurer. “This is very positive.” Jefferson said he believes the social responsibility lesson schools teach their students are starting to have an effect. “I think maybe we’re seeing that take root,” he said. “It’s a different generation, and kids seem to respect the schools more these days.” Only 720 incidents of school vandalism occurred in the district in 2010/11, the lowest level since the

district started recording incidents in 2003. Vandalism peaked in 2007/08, when 1,248 incidents were reported. Jefferson recalled the mid-1990s, when graffiti and vandalism was rampant. “Students have a newfound respect,” he said. While graffiti and vandalism still exist, incidents are becoming less frequent, and more minor in nature. In the past two weeks, among the more extreme cases occurred at Blue Mountain elementary, which

had its roof vents and gutters vandalized, while Laity View elementary had a pair of windows broken. Jefferson noted that the majority of students have always refrained from such behaviour. “It’s the outliers who are responsible, it’s always that minority,” he said. Previous estimates put the cost of school vandalism in the district at more than $500,000 annually. “We can only hope, as taxpayers and citizens, that this continues,” he said. See Vandalism, p15

Deanna Sauve is collecting good memories of her late friend, Helen Clare, to give to her family. Colleen Flanagan/ THE NEWS

Not just the girl who died in a motel Friends of Helen Clare held a walk in her memory, one year after she passed away by M o n i s h a M a r t i n s staff reporter

ressed in Lululemon yoga pants, Helen Clare is a picture of health in a photograph taken a few months before she died. She’s got a shimmer of sweat on her forehead and is ready to sip out of a large plastic water bottle. You can tell the photographer captured a moment, the 27-year-old looks a little surprised as the camera clicked. “This is how she was. She loved to work out,” says Deanna Sauve, her friend, pointing at the photograph. “She lived in her Lululemons.” Most people in Maple Ridge might never have crossed paths with Clare. If there’s

anything they remember about her, it’s a headline: “Suspicious death at Maple Ridge motel.” Others may recall driving past the Centennial Motel and Trailer Court, on Lougheed Highway near 216th Street, last September and seeing yellow police tape around its faded green buildings and crime scene investigators in white protective bunny suits. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team still won’t say how the young woman died or reveal the results of a toxicology report, but continue to investigate her death. To Clare’s friends and family, she was not a “nobody” or just a down-and-out stranger who passed away alone in a motel, another accident or tragedy. “She was a person, she was loved and still is and we want her to be remembered,” says Sauve, who met Clare in 2009 at a recovery house in Maple Ridge, where she was trying to kick an addiction to alcohol and drugs. Born in Richmond, Clare moved with her family to South Africa when she was three and returned to Canada when she was six. The family has lived in Surrey since. Clare graduated from Tamanawis secondary and would have been 28 years old this past

Friends retraced the walk Clare used to take while in a recovery house. June. She had an eating disorder, Sauve said, that she had to conceal to get into the drug treatment centre, a condition that saw her relapse after she completed the 60-day program. A talented hairstylist and make-up artist, Clare was the life of the recovery house. She got the women exercising, did their hair and little things like buy one woman a bag of flour so she could bake. “She would give you the shirt off her back in a second if she thought you needed it

and had a very special talent of cheering people up,” said Sauve. Clare’s friends have started a walk in her memory and plan to remember her every year on the day she died. The first walk took place Monday and followed the route Clare walked when she lived at the recovery house. Sauve is now collecting all the memories – the good ones – that people have of Clare to put in a book that she will present to Clare’s family, who have struggled with her death and years of substance abuse. “We want to gather the precious things and leave the sad behind,” Sauve says. She wishes the treatment centre dealt with Clare’s eating disorder instead of forcing her to hide it. “If we never fully deal with every single issue, there will always be a pain to numb,” she says. “Life as you know it can and will slip away before you have the chance to finally get it and the people who know and love you are only left with memories, memorials and pain in their heart.” Sauve hopes Clare’s story will help others who are struggling with addictions and eating disorders. “If it helps even one person, then our purpose has been served.”

LONG HOT SUMMER As we wind down from another long hot summer, there are a few things to prepare your vehicle for the upcoming weather change that must be considered. One inexpensive item that often gets ignored is your windshield wiper blades. While you haven’t used them much lately, that’s going to change very soon. So have your shop install a new set the next time you’re in for a service. If your wipers or washer’s don’t work properly or are experiencing some type of difficulty, you need to get them looked at soon. Why take chances with your ability to see the road, especially at night? During the heat we don’t use our heaterdefrost system very much so that needs to be inspected and serviced before the temperature starts dropping. As this system relies completely on your coolant system, it too needs to be tested, inspected for leaks and have the anti-freeze checked for freeze point protection. Vehicles today have one or more source functions located in the coolant system monitored or controlled by the onboard computer. To service this system properly requires the expertise of a full service auto repair facility! The days of coolant flushes being considered for the coolant systems only need for servicing, are long over. There’s much more to service nowadays. Most vehicles are factory filled with long life coolant, so the coolant (anti-freeze) is not the priority, rather the thermostat and computer coolant sensors are! The next things on the list of items to check are your tires, shocks and alignment, and in that order! Most folks take a long trip or two during the summer months loading the family vehicle to the gunnels and driving great distances in hot weather. These types of conditions are very hard on your tires, shocks and brakes, sometimes causing major wear patterns. Once the wet, cold weather rolls in, what you didn’t notice in the warm weather will rear its ugly head and bite you at the most inopportune time. So have your shop check these items when you’re in for you next oil change. It’s standard procedure at our shop. If you did take a long drive in your vehicle this summer and noticed something that you didn’t think was right, or gave you a bit of concern, don’t put it off just because you don’t feel or hear it now. Your vehicle was telling you something when it was being pushed hard and whatever was wrong then hasn’t gone away, it’s just lurking! Remember the longer you wait to take care of a vehicle’s problem(s) the better chance of those small things turning into big things that require big dollars to repair. Finally, if you know you have a few things to get repaired, but have been ignoring them during the hot weather, better get it done soon. The upcoming rainy season makes for a miserable walk! Hope you all had a great summer enjoying this beautiful part of the world we live in.

NDPer would donate pay raise next three years to community by P hil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter A municipal election looms and speculation begins about who wants a seat at the Maple Ridge council table. All but one of the seven incumbents are running again and three more challengers – Carly O’Rourke, Craig Ruthven and Grover Telford – are nipping at their heals, with the first proposing a headlinecatching idea. If elected, instead of pocketing the 13-per-cent wage increase council approved this year, O’Rourke says she will donate that amount. Over three years, she says that will add up to about $5,000, which she’d like to donate to a yet-to-be-created community matching fund. “I feel it’s part of an unnecessary pay raise,” she said. O’Rourke wants to make the community matching fund a part of her campaign platform and will work to create that if she’s elected. If that doesn’t happen, she’ll give her pay raise to charity. The fund would be a pot of money the District of Maple Ridge could create and make available to neighbourhoods on a matching basis. The money could be used for local projects if half the money was raised by the neighbourhood. She’d also like to promote equestrian tourism, agrees with the creation of a part-time equestrian coordinator as called for by the Haney Horsemen Association, and said horse rentals allowing people to ride to Golden Ears Provincial Park would be unique. But she wants to keep Albion flats untouched by development and to stay within the Ag-

ricultural Land Reserve. O’Rourke is currently constituency assistant for NDP MLA Michael Sather (Maple RidgePitt Meadows) and says her political views will naturally come across at council, though she says she’ll be independent. If she’s elected, she’ll cut hours in the MLA’s office back to parttime so she can focus on council. It’s her second time running for council. In 2008, she narrowly missed election, placing seventh. “I think there’s a huge system in place to promote growth. It’s run by realtors and developers and we need to have citizens on council with the best interests of the public in mind.” She supports development, but not at the expense of agriculture or nature or Maple Ridge’s rural character. She’d also like to see councillors’ expense statements itemized, so taxpayers know exactly what they’re paying for, a part of creating greater transparency. Craig Ruthven, a part-time high-school teacher in Burnaby, is also running for council. He got involved with the Albion flats planning process in the fall of 2010 as a member of Residents for Smart Shopping, the Smart Centres-supported group that called for shopping in Albion flats. He says in a news release he couldn’t make sense “of the very obvious gap between the demand/support (for a shopping mall in Albion flats) that I was seeing in the community and the staggering lack of support in those early planning sessions in what were supposed to be “ ‘open-ended’ explorations of uses.” He said it was the public demand for more shopping in Maple Ridge that led council to submit a plan to the Agricultural Land Commission for extensive development of Albion flats. The ALC is still deliberating.

Ruthven also raised questions about creating local jobs and asked how can Maple Ridge expands its tax base while still retaining its rural character? And how should transportation be improved? He pointed out development seems O’Rourke to be focused along Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road and that there should be attempts to build off those routes. Alternatives to the auto should be considered and he wants more hours for the West Coast Express. On the other hand, it’s difficult to predict the Ruthven future of the auto or the how roads will be used. “It’s going to take a community to solve all of our issues and a council that’s skilled at listening.” He said later he wants to move beyond polarizing politics and find middle ground so Maple Ridge can keep Telford progressing. “I think we need leaders who are strong. They’re able to look at the complexities of the issues and find common ground.” He supports the downtown plan and the extensive efforts made in that area. But he wants the same “kind of care and attention to detail” applied to the suburbs, to prevent a “sprawling nightmare.” But he wondered about council even considering paying $4 million up front (with later cost recovery) to install roads and sewers in north Albion, an expense usually borne upfront by developers. Grover Telford, owner of Able Home Services, a home repair and cleaning service, also con-

firmed last week that he is running for a second time. He sits on the Ridge Meadows Seniors Society board, on the district’s social planning advisory committee, and is a minor soccer coach. Telford said he wants council to be more united and wants to improve communication between district staff and council. Sometimes, he added, it seems staff is setting the agenda rather than council. Developers are upset because their applications take too long to get approval. He criticizes the current council for unnecessarily delaying the decision process on Albion flats and says it should have sent in a plan that addresses the Agricultural Land Commission concerns instead of one that calls for development of most of the flats. “There’s no point putting a proposal together that’s bound to be turned down.” Telford says his approach is middle of the road and considers both business and community interests. “There’s a lot of points of view that have to be dealt with. “I put a lot of effort into the community and I don’t have all the answers. I listen to people, what their concerns are. That’s how I form my ideas.” His volunteer work leads naturally to serving on council, and after 32 years running his business, it’s time for a change, he adds. He wants a balanced approach to growth and more business taxation to ease the tax load for homeowners. See Candidates, p5

9-11 ceremony for MRFD staff reporter

“While 343 firefighters died in New York on that particular day, across the United States and Canada everyday firefighters willingly put themselves in a position where they may not go home at the end of the day. It gives us a day to reflect on people who have passed away - both locally, provincially and nationally.” Eight firefighters from Pitt Meadows will head to the Sumas border crossing in Abbotsford for another ceremony to remember the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

Firefighters in Maple Ridge will be hold a ceremony on Sunday to remember those who lost their lives a decade ago in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Flags will be lowered at 9:59 a.m., the minute when the first tower of the World Trade Centre in New York began to collapse. Sunday is also a day to remember Canadian firefighters who died on the job. “It’s reminded us of what we do,” said Maple Ridge assistant fire chief Howard Exner.

ers, as well as police officers, paramedics and other law enforcement personnel will march across the border to join the Americans for the event. “Sept. 11 changed the way we, as citizens, enjoy life,” said Pitt Meadows assistant fire chief Rob Chatton, who will attend the Sumas ceremony. “We need to honour the individuals who lost their lives that day.” • The ceremony in Maple Ridge will take place at Fire Hall 1 on Brown Avenue at Dewdney Trunk Road. It begins at 9:59 a.m. on Sunday.

‘There needs to be belt tightening’ Candidates from p4 If elected, he wouldn’t vote for a municipal budget unless there was a decrease. “I think there needs to be some belt tightening.” Telford ran in the 2008 election and was pleased with the number of votes that he drew, attributing that to the reputation earned by his business. He got an early start

for the March 2011 campaign, adding that signs and a website are all ready. “I’ve been planning and working on this for the last two years.” Long-time council commentator and public relations consultant Claus Andrup also announced his candidacy after initially saying he was going to run in January.

Out of order An online petition is growing to stop Gordon Campbell from accepting the Order of B.C. The petition, started by a Maple Ridge woman, claims the former premier is ineligible for the award because he was still in office when nominated – a criteria violation. Nominations for the award closed March 10, when Campbell was still a MLA. He resigned March 14. Why even the rush? Could Campbell not have been nominated next year? Other former premiers have yet to be nominated, including Bill Vander Zalm and Glen Clark. They too had their scandals. Campbell was arrested for drunk driving in Maui. The B.C. Rail deal? Then finally the messy introduction of the HST, which ultimately forced his resignation and subsequent referendum. His legacy now is not the Olympics, but the millions of dollars wasted on the whole process, all because he couldn’t be up front with voters. And for such outstanding achievements he should be bestowed the highest honour in B.C.? Barbara Steele, a Surrey councillor and Union of B.C. Municipalities president who sat on the nomination committee, defended Campbell’s selection. She also ran for the Liberals in 2005. Chief Justice Lance Finch was also part of the committee and claims Campbell’s nomination and selection were above board. Close to 200 nominations were received. The committee couldn’t fine one less controversial, or a little more deserving? In all, 14 were picked, including: Ken Dobell, former Vancouver City manager and deputy to Campbell; David Emerson, a former senior B.C. bureaucrat who served in two federal Liberal cabinets; and Luigi Aquilini, developer, berry farmer and owner of the Vancouver Canucks who is also a Liberal donor. Political cronyism? Some suspect so, which only taints the award. The timing and optics are of Campbell’s selection are poor. It should be rescinded or he should decline the honour. More than 5,000 people on Facebook agree. Clearly, the selection process is out of order. – The News Tell us what you think @ www.mapleridgenews.com

These are decisions that affect us all F

ormer assistant deputy minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada John Davis was well into his expert testimony to the Cohen Inquiry in May when he touched on the crucial problem with the DFO’s wild salmon policy: we need a lot more talk about who Along the Fraser makes decisions that Jack Emberly we all have to live with. Sounds like the HST story over again, doesn’t it? “For your discussions of wild salmon policy, Mr. Commissioner,” suggested Davis, who retired in 2008, but remained a key policy advisor into 2010, “this is a very important point because basically here you’re dealing with decisions about weak stock management, how you weigh these sorts of things, and how we make societal decisions with respect to the tradeoffs and the impacts of such things, and I would very much like to talk more about this type of thing as we proceed.” Weigh things, societal decisions, tradeoffs? We’re talking about measuring the value of biodiversity in salmon sub-groups against the economic costs associated with preserving them; about the cultural importance of salmon to First Nations People, and you and I. So, why did it take so long for someone in the DFO to say the people most

Q

uestion of the week:

affected by their decisions should have a say in them? Decisions like these: DFO, mandated to protect wild salmon, takes on a second role – support the fish farm industry. The “only source of fresh salmon all year round” has a proven history of disease anywhere it’s been introduced. Ours farms are sited in the path of migrating Fraser sockeye. Norwegian scientists told Cohen that’s a bad idea. They don’t allow their farms near sensitive salmon runs. There’s more. DFO decided, without asking you and me, not to test Atlantic farm fish for disease, and advised the industry not to volunteer testing because it wouldn’t be in its best interest. With the arrival of our fish farms, wild sockeye carrying a pre-mortality genetic signature associated with weakened immune systems (scientist, Dr. Kristi Miller) began to die in huge numbers before reaching spawning grounds, (90 per cent in 2009). The DFO has failed to assure funding for Dr. Miller’s ground-breaking research. You’d think they’d be jumping up and down with excitement. Furthermore, DFO decided Dr. Miller won’t talk to the also “muzzled” press, who have all but given up trying to reach a live DFO spokesman on the phone. The DFO decided what we hear must come from “strategic media representatives” in their “media lines” department. But, finally, one senior DFO advisor suggests we talk about how we make decisions. Like the DFO decision, perhaps, not to list Cultus Lake sockeye under the Spe-

cies at Risk Act. Stock status report 2003/2004 (Fisheries and Oceans) pertains to this unique subset of sockeye harvested by the Soowahlie First Nations, “for thousands of years.” Spawning populations averaged 20,000 adults between 1920 and 1960. Then began a steady decline – habitat destruction, over-fishing, climate change, and the “pre-spawning mortality,” associated with the virus Dr. Miller identified, but can’t talk about. In the year, 2000, the number of Cultus spawners plummeted 93 per cent to a record low 515 fish. The Soowhalie urged DFO to act, fearing the fish faced extinction. Finally, DFO considered the obvious question: should this irreplaceable sockeye, found in Cultus Lake, but no where else in the world, be listed on the Species at Risk Act? The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada was subsequently charged with investigating. It conducted a “scientific assessment in mid 2003,” said Davis, then suggested listing Cultus sockeye under SARA. If listed, Dr. Davis explained, the minister would have been compelled to begin a restoration program. Dr. Davis told Cohen, “you cannot kill, harass, destroy the habitat of, possess a listed species …” But, listing didn’t happen because DFO decided to advise Environment Canada, the ministry responsible for SARA (and its recently slashed funding) not to list them. EC, complied. Cultus Lake sockeye are not endangered. DFO decided that. See Along the Fraser, p7

THE NEWS/letters Not surprising in Liberal la-la land EDITOR, THE NEWS:

Re: Protest growing against Campbell (The News, Sept. 7). Isn’t this an interesting and not surprising turn of events in B.C. Liberal la-la land? For more than 30 years people have been nominating other people for the Order of B.C. based on a wellpublicized set of nomination criteria. Turns out this week (luckily for Gordon Campbell) that the commonly known criteria, in fact, isn’t the criteria; rather, it’s something else entirely. How fortuitous. It would be extremely interesting to know who nominated Mr. Campbell for this award, and how they knew he did, in fact, qualify, when anyone else would have read on the Order of B.C. website that he was ineligible. You might also wonder why the Order of B.C. people would go out of their way to say that nominees must not be currently elected people when that is apparently not true. According to today’s spin, nominees are allowed to be currently elected people at the close of nomination; just as long as they are not elected when the award is actually given to them. Who knew? Freedom of Information request, anyone? CHERYL BARON MAPLE RIDGE

Tribulations of telecommunications M

y teen daughter has marked a key milestone in her young life. Among “coming of age” moments, it’s right up there with sweet 16, learning to drive, and being able to vote. Commentary She got a cellAndrew Holota phone. Big whup, you say? When you’re almost 14, and going into ‘real’ high school, having a phone is huge. That’s not why I agreed to it, though. There had to be more justification for a personal phone than just the Grade 9 coolness factor. I agonized over it. The advantages were clear. We could get hold of our daughter whenever necessary, without having to chase around for friends’ numbers. If she needed a ride, or a pickup time had changed, she could let us know. And, if she was in a situation in which parental aid and extraction were required, she could call without having to ask someone for a phone. And then there were the downsides ... Cost, of course, but that’s pretty mini-

mal if the plan is limited. The bigger objection was the danger of turning my kid into a version of the teen texting zombies – the kids who hang around, constantly looking at their phones, thumbing away obsessively. I think if they were forcibly separated from their phones, they might go into spasms, or enter a catatonic state. It’s frightening. And then there’s the extension of the whole social networking thing. We struggled mightily against Facebook. At one point, I would rather have had a nuclear radiation leak in my house than Facebook. But the concept eventually became part of my work life, and I succumbed to the great brain drain. So, anyway, I initially thought a standard phone would suffice. After all, I just wanted to be able to call her, and vice versa. Just a simple flip-phone would be fine. Teen response: Blank look through half-lowered eyelids. She was envisioning a BlastedBerry. OK, maybe I’d consider that. But no data plan. Frantic wail: “But what’s the point of having a Blightberry if you don’t have Internet?” Precisely. The phone salesman was helpful. He could supply a free BonkBerry, and an

inexpensive plan that just provided talking, and texting. How about a plan with no texting? “Daaaad!” Limited texting, then. The salesman pointed out that kids will text her, regardless of the limit, and then we’d have to remortgage the house. OK. This would have to be solved via my finely honed parenting skills, and carefully chosen diplomatic language that has brought us this far through early teenhood with great success. “Abuse this phone, and it is gone. Exceed your phone minutes, or start incessant texting, and you will get a little plastic walkie-talkie.” She understands that sometimes, victories are measured in degrees. So, after some further subtle negotiation, we exited with a DingleBerry, a limited phone plan, and an appreciative, pleased teen who, I noticed the other day as we were walking together through the mall, was holding her precious phone in her hand. I broke into a cold sweat. Mind you, yesterday at the office, I got a text. “Hey dad, when r u gonna B home?” It had a nice ring to it, so to speak.

Tainted award From: JLS, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Protest growing against Campbell (The News, Sept. 7). The award is now so tainted they should shut it down and get rid of it. Every semblance of respect it once had is now so obviously tainted it begs the question of if the award is nothing more than one group of people who scratch each other’s backs. The Liberals don’t even have the guts to call an election, even after Christy Clark had said that she really had no mandate to be in office so she needed the early election to get that credibility. Gordon Campbell will forever be known as the leader who had to step down in shame over the HST lies and deceit, then Christy was elected not to replace Gordon, but to save Gordon’s HST. And it is due to that blunder, she now is keeping both herself, the Liberals, and the HST in place for as long as they can. If that does not stink bad enough, having these folks honor themselves with the order of British Columbia makes me hope none of our children are reading or watching the news, lest they learn that corruption is honorable, literally. From: karenco, posted on mapleridgenews.com. Re: Protest growing against Campbell (The News, Sept. 7). What did the Aquilini family pay for the two properties in the first place? Did they not pass the environmental reviews to develop the land or discover the property was not viable for development due to the water table? It looks to me like the Aquilini group was just unloading a couple of white elephants and getting all kinds of kudos for turning them into acts of generosity – a win, win situation. Aquilini is not the first person to donate to much-needed children’s issues. He just gets more recognition because he can afford to do it in a big way. All the good those contributions did were reduced in ethical value when his family supported the B.C. Liberals to the tune of over a half million dollars, while this political party’s policies and cuts have kept record numbers of children at the poverty level. Aquilini may or may not be sincere, but given his actions on many other social and environmental issues in the past, one must consider that not all acts of generosity and kindness are altruistic.

Where’s scientific data backing pesticide ban? EDITOR, THE NEWS:

Re: Maple Ridge backs B.C. pesticide ban (The News, Sept. 2). I read that Maple Ridge is lending its support to the Canadian Cancer Society’s pesticide ban campaign. Is that support alongside of the support to ban cigarettes, a known carcinogen? I might be ecstatic about this support if I knew on which basis the support was being lent. Is it the science showing this to be true? Is it the drastic reduction of cancer cases in hospitals in locales where the pesticide ban has been in existence for enough years to document this as truth? What powerful evidence swayed the good council? Was it ‘Dr.’ Gideon Foreman, head of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, an organization of doctors (with many

who are not doctors), led by someone who gives himself a title that is not real and has not been earned.? Maple Ridge passed its own bylaw, which, if you pay $60, you can be exempt from. Looks less like the district is concerned about a constituent’s welfare than its own receivables. The ministry had a 60-day consultation period in which it received 8,000 replies, most favouring a ban. Might that be because most are OK with the status quo? Look at the HST referendum. It wasn’t too difficult to have it reversed. Many people appeared to prefer the status quo of two taxes. I also wonder how many citizens were aware of this consultation. I also wonder how many replies were from outside of B.C., or in some way attributed to B.C. citizens.

The word most is accurate perhaps, but was it 4,001 vs. 3,999? It’s easy to play with numbers and words. CCS, politicians, snake-oil salesmen, and myself (so I’m told) do it frequently. I would love to see some scientific data backing any claim that is being made. After all, some cities have banned pesticides for in excess of 20 years. Surely there must be some evidence of a link of some sort in the reduction in cancer rates? Problematic might be which pesticides, of course, or which health initiative, but 20 years should be giving some numbers for someone to play with. Is that screaming, I hear: ‘If it saves even one life, then it’s justified.’ Where’s the proof of what has caused the reduction,

maybe it was the effort to ban cigarettes? There is a regulatory body in place that approves and disapproves the use of pesticides (and medications and radioactive dosages). It works diligently on your behalf to ensure that your health is being safeguarded. The science says the materials being used in an appropriate fashion are safe. Somehow I prefer to defer to the knowledge of a moderately paid scientist who has nothing to gain (of course, there’s a conspiracy theory), as opposed to a handsomely (correct me if I’m wrong) remunerated group of nonscientists who garner their information from sources unwilling to reveal themselves or their data, it seems (of course, I could be wrong, again).

Time won for consideration of economic factors Along the Fraser from p6 Dr. Davis told Cohen we need time to assess “socioeconomic” factors like the overall impact on the economy of closing a fishery. By the way, the B.C. Government favored not listing, for “economic” concerns, and were relieved when it didn’t happen. We learned this during the testimony of Dr. Davis. Time won for consideration of economic factors may prove to be more than

Cultus Lake sockeye have on this planet. SARA, charged with listing species at risk on the basis of biodiversity, cultural, and aesthetic values alone could have assured wild salmon would be with us forever. Perhaps the latest victim of muzzling, it must now consider the economic implications of listing a species, weigh the overall costs and benefits. Questions like, what’s the value of 515 sock-

eye compared to the millions produced by an industry that provides 73 per cent of salmon in supermarkets? “When is the likely economic impact of listing too high so that the listing should not be recommended?” asked Dr. Davis. Some us of might say, never. At any rate, the DFO should not make another societal decision without public approval. Any “smoking

gun” we uncover will have its fingerprints on it. Like the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, DFO experimented arrogantly in private, and created chaos it would never have foreseen without open discussion with its masters. That approach toppled the HST, and it will change DFO’s wild salmon policy. Jack Emberly is a retired teacher, local author and environmentalist.

The blue construction fence set up recently around the parking lot may be a sign, the long-awaited facelift of Haney Place Mall is about to begin. While he hasn’t spoken directly to the mall owner recently, Mayor Ernie Daykin says staff have told him that Narland Properties has applied for a building permit for the renovation of the south facade of the mall and parking lot. Council previously approved a development permit for the

renovations in spring. The work will also prepare the way for Thrifty Foods to start its own modifications so it can move into the space formerly occupied by the Haney Marketplace and Antique Mall by early 2012. Daykin said he’d be worried if no building permit application had been filed, but is confident the work is going ahead. Narland earlier bought the two lots on 226th Street and Lougheed Highway for about $1.5 million, which will give the mall access to Lougheed. Renovations for the Zellers at the west end

A four-story building is proposed for the corner of 224th Street by Memorial Peace Park. of the mall remain to be determined. Target Corp. of Minneapolis, Minn., bought the Zellers chain earlier this year and said it will renovate several stores in Canada before opening them as Target stores in 2013. Daykin said the Maple Ridge store is at the top of the Target list for its stores in B.C. The streetscape could also change on 224th Street in the downtown if properties change hands. Retail units are for sale at 11979 – 224th St. “Recently opened Golden Ears Bridge and high-traffic area make this location and building a truly desirable investment,” says the posting on a CLSlink.ca website.

That’s listed for $1.6 million. Near the corner of Dewdney Trunk Road at 11994 – 224th St., the property, including two retail units and an apartment above, is going for $799,000. Another lot at 11965 – 224th St., is listed at $775,000. “Ideal investment located on the main street for all city events,” says the listing. The corner of McIntosh Avenue and 224th Street could see a completely new appearance in a few years. Dave Prakash, of D.B. Prakash Properties, three years ago wanted to build a four-storey condo commercial complex on the corner, the current location of

Jim’s Pizza. But he couldn’t get an agreement to allow underpinning of the new building beneath the adjacent lot. Prakash, however, eventually bought that next lot for about a million dollars and still plans on putting up the new building in a few years as he arranges financing. “It will be done, but it will take some time.” He foresees a fourstorey building with about 30 condominiums with retail on the ground floor. “I like this location. We’ll try to make the most of it.” Daykin hadn’t heard of any update on plans for a $23-million, twobuilding condominium complex on 119th Avenue and 226th Street, across from Haney Place Mall. Start time was supposed to be August or September. The application was approved in 2008 with a two-year building stage, followed by another year’s extension. The building is proposed to have four storeys with shops on the ground floor. It is to be built in two phases and have a total of 96 units.

Five-year-old girl sells blueberries for charity by Colleen Flanagan staff reporter Riyah Biln, 5, raised $500 in five days for World Vision to help the people of Somalia. Biln wanted to raise the money after seeing the African children in an ad for World Vision. “They were like lying down and they couldn’t get the flies off their face because they didn’t have energy to move their arms,” Biln said. So, for five days in August, under the supervision of her mother, Aman, the five-year-old sold blueberries for two to three hours each day outside their convenience store at the Petro-Canada station on 232nd Street. The blueberries were donated from her parent’s blueberry farm, Silver Valley Farms. Her donation prompted Liz Wiebe, regional representative for World Vision, to deliver a thank-you card praising Biln for her hard work. “You are making a difference (in Somalia) and you are inspiring people here,” writes Wiebe in the card. Biln is going to make this an annual event and hopes to raise even more money next year.

Make Pitt Meadows a better place staff reporter If you would like to start festival, think you aren’t being heard by city hall or need feedback on a much-mulled over idea to improve your neighbourhood, there’s a place for you to go to. The Pitt Meadows Community Association, which opened its office in Osprey Village two weeks ago, sees itself as a facilitator, a place where business, residents and elected officials come together for a common goal. “We’re bringing people together for a better Pitt Meadows,” said association president Hanna Vorlicek, who started the popular “Hockey Day” in Osprey Village three years. Vorlicek decided to start the association after hearing from residents who had plenty of ideas and visions for the city, but failed to get them off the ground. “I saw all these fabulous resources we have in Pitt Meadows and nothing was being done with them. I thought we really need to harness all of

The membership-based association has already taken part in the Osprey neighbourhood barbecue, the Kali Yoga “yogathon” and the 7th Athletesin-Kind head shave, for which Vorlicek and another board member, Hody Lye, shed their locks. The association plans to hold an all-candidates meeting before the November civic elec-

tion and a movie night is also in the works. “We are a small community and people want that small community feeling,” said Vorlicek. “Once we get our membership built up, we’ll understand what people want. The Pitt Meadows Community Association will hold its first annual general meeting on September 20 at 7 p.m. at 202-10958 Barnston View Road. Annual family memberships are $20 and business members are $40. Vorlicek will also be at the Osprey Village farmers’ market on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. • To learn more about the Pitt Meadows Community Association, call 604-465-5500 or email info@pmcaonline.com.

Pitt field change rooms put on hold The artificial turf field at Pitt Meadows secondary won’t be getting change rooms anytime soon. The parks and leisure service spent $250,000 constructing

washrooms at the sports field, which left a balance of $150,000 – which is not enough to add change rooms. The money will now be held for a maximum of two years to allow the Pitt Meadows soccer association and city to investigate grants to fund the construction of change rooms.

‘Majority still have excess space’ Enrollment from front “And everyday there’s more families moving to this area.” Currently, Albion elementary has 555 students enrolled at the school, despite being built for around 425. The school has had to install five portable classrooms to accommodate the overflow. Initially, the district had planned for there to be three kindergarten classes at the school, however, that was expanded to four. Despite adding an extra class, some parents

were still turned away. Schools offering French immersion programs also experienced line-ups, Unwin said. “At the end of the day, we had the number of kids we thought would show up, they just didn’t show up in the exact places we thought they would,” she said. The majority of schools across the district still have excess student space, Unwin noted. The district will be operating a school bus service for students in east Maple Ridge to

make it easier to attend nearby schools with extra space, such as Blue Mountain, Webster’s Corners, and Harry Hooge elementary schools. The student population in the local school district is expected to fall by about 200 to 300 kids this year, a smaller decline than the district has seen in the past. “Our projections are almost bang-on so far,” Unwin said. “But there’s usually a lot of shuffling around for a week or two.” While Unwin is thank-

ful the ongoing decline in student enrollment is starting to bottom out, she added that it will be a long time before the district reaches maximum enrollment levels. “It should start creeping up soon, maybe starting in 2013, 2014, or 2015, but there’s no sign of it being what it was anytime soon,” she said. As a result, Unwin says the district has no plans to consider closing more schools. “Certainly not anytime in the near future,” she said.

Vandalism from front The district has installed metal rolling shutters to protect windows on many schools to help combat vandalism in recent years. Schools have also employed video surveillance, motion detectors, automated sprinkler systems, and

the Mosquito teen deterrent – a device that emits an obnoxious highpitched noise audible only to young people. The district also operates a 24-hour vandalism hotline (604-466-4357) and forwards reports of to the district’s security firm or the RCMP.

Smoking ban looms for Metro regional parks Puffing would be permitted in specific zones only by J e ff Nagel Black Press A ban on smoking in regional parks except in designated areas will go to the Metro Vancouver board for a ďŹ nal vote later this month. The region’s parks committee voted 5-4 Wednesday to proceed with the tougher restrictions on smokers who

Welcome Announcement for Karolyn and Mark

Maple Ridge Baptist Church is pleased to welcome Mark Burch to its pulpit to ďŹ ll the role of Senior Pastor. Mark and his wife, Karolyn, have served extensively in various pastoral and ministry roles around BC, including that of Senior Pastor of Willow Park Church in Kelowna. Mark arrives at MRBC from his most recent position as the Associate Director of Church Planting BC, a ministry of the BC Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.

use Metro-run parks, trails and beaches. Committee chair Gayle Martin, a Langley City councillor, said the plan would leave it to Metro staff to deďŹ ne permitted smoking zones near where people spend long periods of time – beaches, shelters, reservable buildings and campsites. “There would be no smoking anywhere in Metro Vancouver parks except for those designated smoking areas,â€? she said. “If you’re taking a walk on a trail, you will not be able to smoke.â€? Martin, a smoker herself, was one of the four directors who opposed the new policy. She argued a better approach would have been to deďŹ ne speciďŹ c nosmoking zones to protect people in high-use areas, but let smokers puff away everywhere else in Metro parks. “I’ve never had one complaint about people smoking in regional parks,â€? Martin said. Posting signs and other printed information on the policy would cost the region up to $23,000, if the recommendation is adopted by the board Sept. 24. A Metro staff report

ilton and Langley Township Coun. Mel Kositsky. The debate came after a presentation from the Canadian Cancer Society, which urged Metro to proceed with a ban. “A comprehensive ban on tobacco use within regional parks would eliminate exposure of park users to secondhand smoke, protect the park environment from tobacco litter and reduce ďŹ re risk as a result of tobacco products,â€? society campaigner Brittney Parks said in a presentation. The Wreck Beach Preservation Society opposed the smoking ban

estimated only 10 to 15 per cent of park-goers smoke and that most would likely voluntarily comply with the new restrictions without any extra spending on enforcement. Smoking zones would only be designated where there is little risk of second-hand smoke exposure to others, smoking litter is contained and there is no risk of ďŹ re starts. Committee members in favour of the partial ban were Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean, Vancouver Coun. Tim Stevenson, Abbotsford Mayor George Peary, Delta Coun. Scott Ham-

and a volunteer coordinator at PaciďŹ c Spirit Regional Park urged Metro to put the money to better uses. The planned policy would also affect other regional parks like Tynehead, Campbell Valley, Lynn Headwaters and Belcarra regional parks, as well as some beaches, such as Centennial Beach at Boundary Bay and Sasamat Lake. The committee had voted in June to advance the policy to Metro’s July board meeting, but Martin pulled the item from that agenda and sent it back to staff to gather more details on the costs and logistics.

had been teaching for about 10 years before I had my own children, yet my training for true child care was woefully inadequate when my wife and I brought our ďŹ rst child home from the hospital. While my wife felt much the same for the ďŹ rst few weeks, her on-the-job-training quickly gave her a set of skills that clearly beneďŹ ted our second and third born children. She had a support network of our parents, other relatives, friends and an inďŹ nite supply of books and magazine articles to offer her suggestions and tips, some welcomed, others, not so much. Me? I simply followed her lead at the times that full-time childcare was my responsibility, times I might add that were few and far between due to my work schedule and her understanding of the gap between my intentions and my competence. Much like child care, the most common level of elder care is untrained and unprepared for the task. In most cases, the initial provider of elder care is a spouse. A spouse whose health or mental condition is deteriorating is where the rubber meets the road in the marriage vow of “for better or for worse.â€? While the necessity of care can be initiated by a catastrophic event – a heart attack, stroke or debilitating disease – more commonly it is a progression

of time and a gradual decline of independence. Again, like that early experience in childcare, there is plenty of time for on-thejob-training Parenting in situations where Graham Hookey changes are gradual. To some extent, the heart of the elder care system is dependent upon the majority of seniors supporting themselves for as long as possible, and to that end, there are many community services provided to assist in this matter. The adult children of seniors must recognize that while caring for each other will be viewed as a natural progression for their parents, it is not easy, either emotionally or physically to do so. Helping them understand and develop a support network of family, friends and community resources is an important part of providing them with the options from which they can choose those that best meet their needs for independence, but also for competent care. It is important to remember that there are very different levels of care needed at times and, thus, different levels of exper-

tise necessary for the caregiver. An aging spouse can easily become overwhelmed with the requirements of 24/7 care, again, both emotionally and physically, though few will admit to it or act on it. The result is that the health of both can be put at risk or compromised. The ďŹ rst line of support in the health care business is the family doctor. My advice to adult children whose parents may be starting down the road of dependence is to attend doctor’s appointments with parents and ask what resources are available and how they can be accessed if necessary. The current generation of seniors does not necessarily advocate for themselves and the greatest support we can offer them is a list of services for whom their requests for help are not an imposition, but the purpose of their work. Understanding all of the public and private services available is essential to building the kind of network to support a parent who suddenly ďŹ nds herself or himself as the primary caregiver to a spouse. This is the ďŹ rst, but certainly not the last level of support that children can offer their aging parents. Graham Hookey is an education and parenting writer (ghookey@yahoo.com).

The smaller cousins of spring colour T

he garden giants of spring colour are giving way to their smaller cousins that actually repeat their performance year after year and leave a very soft footprint of dying and unsightly foliage. Yes, the big tulips, narcissus and hyaGardening cinths provide a great splash of colour and are Brian Minter important in the right locations, but minor bulbs offer us a subtle accompaniment to so many other spring plants and can make our gardens truly spectacular. Snowdrops and crocuses are growing in popularity because they are old fashioned favourites and easy to plant. They perennialize readily almost anywhere in the garden to create an ever expanding display each year. The tiny yellow buttercup-like winter aconite (Eranthis cilicica) is one bulb that sneaks ahead to bloom even before snowdrops. Its touch of yellow is a true spring inspiration during the cold grey months of January and February. It multiplies nicely among ground covers, but looks particularly charming with dark ajugas, like ‘Black Scallop’, dark foliaged thymes and compact, almost black heucheras, like H. ‘Obsidian’. In recent years, more varieties of grape hyacinths (muscari) have been introduced into the marketplace than perhaps any other bulb. Blue is a refreshing contrast colour for so many other plants and bulbs, especially those with golden or red foliage. There are some recent innovations that I think are truly spectacular. Muscari ‘Mt. Hood’ has clear blue flowers with snowcapped white tops. In clusters they look sensational as do the similar M. neglectum with their dark blue flowers rimmed in white. If you love a little perfume, the first yellow variety, M. ‘Golden Fragrance’, is quite an attention getter. These are all long blooming, mid-season varieties. There are a couple of quite pleasing later varieties. Muscari ‘Plumosum’ is a large, blue-flowered variety that is unique, and M. comosum is a lavender-coloured, wispy variety that is so late it blooms with the alliums.

Muscari ‘Valerie Finnis’ is a unique soft blue that lifts any combination. All muscari need to be planted in groupings for the best effect, and they look great underplanted around dwarf forsythia and corylopsis (the variety well known as Buttercup Winter Hazel). We love scillas in our own gardens simply because they bloom in May, when most other bulbs are finished, providing a refreshing lift. The blues are nice, but I must admit that the white and pink Scilla campanulatas are fabulous. The pink, in particular, adds a new and important colour to our gardens. They multiply well too and yes, they even have a perfume. So many folks who ask for old fashioned English bluebells are not quite sure what to request in terms of getting the right bulb. Well, Scilla nutans is the true English bluebell that thrives best in light shade and blooms over a long period of time. One personal favourite is the little bulb puschkinia. These tiny, pure-white bulbs with pin-striped blue flowers are incredibly bright and cheery in March landscapes. They look great with miniature yellow daffodils or dwarf red tulips, and they bloom a long while. From a distance, they look like soft blue clumps that spice up any border or rockery. Alliums are such a treat in June and July gardens, adding another fresh look as summer annuals get settled in. There are so many varieties, but the yellow Allium moly luteum, the bell-like pink and fragrant A. bulgarium and A. ‘Drumstick’ (A. sphaerocephalum) are my favourite tiny flowered varieties. No garden should be without A. schubertii and A. christophii for sheer wonderment of their intricately woven flower heads that last for weeks. It’s okay to show off a little and no June garden should be without a few of the big guys like A. giganteum and the even larger A. ‘Globemaster’. They look magnificent blooming among variegated grasses like Miscanthus ‘Variegatus’ and Phalaris ‘Fersey’s Form’. They will also draw the most admiring comments about your garden. These are just a few of the magical colours that could appear in your garden next spring and for many springs to come if you take a little time and effort to plant them this month. Contributed

Snowdrops and crocuses are growing in popularity because they are old fashioned favourites and easy to plant.

couples can receive the encouragement and resources they need to get married and to stay together. Marriage is a good gift from God that forms the most profound union of all creation and brings blessing to those around us. It’s a lifelong covenant between a man and a woman and forms the foundation of families. Canadian author William Gairdner writes: “The primal and inescapable natural familytriangle – mother, father and children – is the most basic universal fact of our existence.” He also quotes another author: “The ancient trinity of father, mother, and child has survived more vicissitudes than any other human relationship. It is the bedrock underlying all other social structures.” The purpose of the family is to provide physical, emotional and spiritual care for

hirty-five years ago this month, my fiancé, her little brother and I entered the Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove to view the wild animals. Just a few metres inside the gate was the lion cage. A couple of lions were laying down, but there was a male lion who was pacing back and forth near the front of the cage. He seemed a little agitated as a number onlookers had paused to watch. For some reason my fiancé was left standing alone several metres from cage while her brother and I were watching with the crowd. The lion continued pacing along the front of the cage, then suddenly turned the corner, lifted his tail and urinated with the force of a fire hose into the surprised and gaping mouth of my fiancé. We laughed so hard and so long it took ages to convince her to come out of the bathroom at her parent’s place. Thankfully, she recovered and the wedding went ahead as planned the next month. And we’ll be celebrating our 35th anniversary in October. We had rough spots during the engagement, as well as in the years since. But it has been well worth the commitment and faithfulness to each other. We couldn’t have done it on our own, though. We needed and received the empowerment of the Holy Spirit of God. He makes all things beautiful. Our country is at a cross-roads with respect to marriage. Couples are separating and divorcing at a high rate or choosing instead to live common-law. Our society increasingly bears the scars of broken relationships and marriages eroding like sandcastles. And the situation in our churches doesn’t seem much better. A 2001 Barna Poll found that evangelical Christians are just as likely to get divorced as nonevangelical adults. The Bible says: “Marriage should be honoured by all, and the marriage bed kept pure” [Heb. 13:4]. The good thing is that our actions as churches and as a society to support marriage can make a difference. When we support traditional biblical marriage, by our affirmative talk, supportive actions and biblical teaching, then

Cities ‘not afraid’ to drop RCMP Feds show little flexibility on policing contract by J eff Nage l Black Press B.C. cities are again threatening to abandon the RCMP if Ottawa won’t bend in negotiations underway to renew the force’s contract. That’s remains a real possibility, said Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, after Alberta and Saskatchewan “broke ranks” and signed a new 20-year RCMP contract that delivers none of the cost-control measures B.C. municipalities have been demanding. “We – and the other provinces and territories – are not afraid to look at the alternative, which would be forming our own provincial forces,” he said.

The Prairie provinces agreed to keep the existing cost-sharing formula, which makes cities with more than 15,000 population pay 90 per cent of municipal RCMP costs and requires smaller cities to pay 70 per cent, while Ottawa covers the rest. “That deal is not a deal that we’re prepared to sign,” said Fassbender, who is the Union of B.C. Municipalities’ observer in the talks and co-chairs a committee of mayors of RCMPserved cities in the Lower Mainland. B.C. and its cities had been pressing the federal government to shoulder a bigger share of the costs. So far, Fassbender said, Ottawa has suggested it could increase its subsidy from 10 to 30 per cent for officers who serve on integrated regional policing teams, but not for the bulk of detachments where the 90-10 split would still ap-

Lack of regional policing: review A regional police force would have better handled the Stanley Cup riot, according to the Vancouver Police Department’s review of the incident. The VPD review largely echoes a provincial report in concluding the Vancouver force had no advance warning a riot was imminent and that no plausible number of deployed officers could have prevented it. But it also calls the playoffs a regional event that would have benefited from a regional police force in charge of all 3,800 police officers. “A regional policing service model would have provided a more efficient and effective delivery of policing services,” the report says. “If all Metro Vancouver police agencies were under the direction of a regional police service, consistency across training as well as equipment deployment would have been improved.” The VPD said ending the current patchwork quilt of municipal and RCMP forces would improve communication, standardize policy and practices, improve resource use, boost investigative and patrol capacities, reduce service duplication and end competition between forces for recruits and other skilled personnel. At a minimum, the report said, a regional operational plan should have been drawn up to appropriately allocate officers from Metro Vancouver forces for the playoffs. The VPD suggested such a plan at a June 2 group of regional chiefs, but says it was not implemented. “While there was excellent cooperation from police leaders in the region, they understandably were focused on their own municipalities,” the report said. “There was no one leader/agency that could make decisions for the region.” It says the lack of common standards and procedures across forces are a deficiency, not just in riot control but in responding to anything from natural disasters to terrorist attacks. There was no specific recommendation on police regionalization in the report. Municipal forces police Vancouver, West Vancouver, Port Moody, New Westminster, Delta and Abbotsford, while all other municipalities in the region are served by RCMP detachments. The report shows a total of 928 officers from various forces around the Lower Mainland responded to the June 15 riot, including 606 VPD officers. In contrast, the provincial review co-chaired by former Olympic boss John Furlong rejected calls for a regional police force. “We think a regional force would have done just about the same thing as was done collaboratively,” the provincial report said. “A single regional police service may be the ultimate answer to many problems,” it said, but warned a contentious debate over that idea could derail other needed reforms, notably better collaboration and joint training between police and the development of a regional event public safety plan.

ply in larger cities. Nor, he said, is there any sign of progress on other major cost drivers of the RCMP, including the medical plan and pension benefits that are “one of the richest in the public sector.” B.C. cities, some of which spend a quarter of their budgets on policing, complain climbing pay, benefits and

equipment costs are making the Mounties unaffordable. Fassbender noted Saskatchewan and Alberta both got a me-too clause that guarantees they get the benefit of any improved deal the federal government might sign with B.C. B.C.’s current RCMP contract expires in March, but can be ex-

tended if a new agreement isn’t reached in time. Any new deal will also include the same exit clause that’s in the current contract. Fassbender said it lets any city or province terminate the RCMP with two years’ notice. There have been repeated calls over the years for Metro Vancouver to adopt a regional police force. Advocates say it would be better equipped to bust gangs and other

criminals who don’t care about civic borders. But Fassbender said he would still prefer to keep the RCMP, which he said provide a high quality of policing. “Nobody has convinced me that making a change will be in the best interest of our taxpayers and crime on our streets,” he said. The Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver is not a good reason to pursue a regional force, Fassbender added. Several cities would

have serious concerns about the potential costs and reduced local service levels if their local police were replaced by a regional force, he said. There are 11 RCMP detachments in the Lower Mainland, including Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Burnaby, Richmond, North Vancouver and Surrey – where the RCMP’s new E Division headquarters is under construction. Seven cities are policed by municipal forces.

Police test drone for helicopter work by Jeff Nage l Black Press RCMP are testing an aerial drone that can hover over crash sites and crime scenes to take photos or beam video back to officers on the ground. The remote-controlled, unmanned aerial vehicle should help crash analysts get better, faster images to reconstruct what happened. RCMP Insp. Norm Gaumont, head of traffic services in the Lower Mainland, said it will allow police to reopen roads to traffic faster after crashes than when a helicopter has to be called in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes we absolutely need an aerial shot of the scene and

A Draganflyer-X6 can carry digital cameras. we keep the road shut down longer than we need to,â&#x20AC;? Gaumont said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This fits in a suitcase and we can have it flying in minutes.â&#x20AC;? The Draganflyer X6 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; built by a Saskatoon firm â&#x20AC;&#x201C; costs $30,000, weighs just one kilogram and can carry either a digital still camera or a high-definition video camera. Officers are permitted to fly it at altitudes of up to 175 feet and at

speeds of up to 30 kilometres per hour. The lower altitude means it can also get much more detailed images than helicopters. An officer on the ground can wear video goggles and see what the drone sees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of potential uses for this technology, but it will not be used for any type of surveillance,â&#x20AC;? Gaumont said. Similar drones are

already used by police in Saskatchewan and Ontario. Gaumont said the RCMP here will test the unit for one year before deciding whether to buy one. Some defence industry analysts have predicted the era of manned combat jets is ending â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the U.S. F-35 fighter now in development will likely be the last new design before military drones take over entirely. But Gaumont said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t foresee that happening anytime soon with police drones shouldering aside helicopters such as Air 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These things are very light and there are a lot of limitations,â&#x20AC;? he said of the Draganflyer. The testing will determine how accurate it is and how the craft performs at night or bad weather, he added.

NE Chiefs move to Coquitlam

WHL comes to Planet Ice Vancouver Giants, Victoria Royals set to face off Saturday by R o b e r t M a n g e l s d o r f staff reporter Junior hockey heavyweights the Vancouver Giants are set to face the Western Hockey League’s newest team, the Victoria Royals, in exhibition action this Saturday at Cam Neely Arena at Planet Ice in Maple Ridge. RG properties, the owners of the Planet Ice hockey arenas in Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, and Delta, bought and moved the Chilliwack Bruins WHL franchise to Victoria earlier this year. The Royals opened their 2011 preseason on Friday with a 4-2 loss to the Kamloops Blazers on the road. The Vancouver Giants, meanwhile, are 1-1 in preseason play after a 4-3 overtime loss to Kelowna on Friday and a 6-3 win over Kamloops on Saturday. Maple Ridge native Connor Redmond will be suiting up for the Vancouver Giants. After injuries limited him to just 15

games last season, the 19-year-old left-winger is hoping to bounce back this season with the G-Men. Proceeds from tickets sold online are being donated to local hockey groups. So far, more than $3,500 has been raised for the Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association and the Meadow Ridge Female Minor Hockey Association, said Marian Gardner, the assistant general manager at Planet Ice. To purchase tickets online, go to http:// selectyourtickets. com/promo and enter the promotional code “Rustlers” or “Barracudas.” The promotional code will determine where the sale came from and forward the funds to the appropriate association. Gardner said there are still plenty of tickets available, with tickets available on game day at the door. Tickets for general admission are $10 each, plus service charges. The exhibition game takes place Saturday, Sept. 10 at 3 p.m., and is expected to sell out. Doors will open at 2 p.m. on the day of the event.

The Vancouver North East Chiefs are moving to Coquitlam this season. The B.C. Major Midget League team has called Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows home since the inception of the highperformance league in 2004, but this year will be playing their home games at Planet Ice in Coquitlam. Coach Doneau Menard said the move made sense given the team already practices in Coquitlam and the majority of the team’s players hail from the Tri-Cities. “As a coach, it’s easier to play in the same rink where we practice,” Menard said. The move is also convenient for the majority of players on the team. “For whatever reason, we’re not getting many kids from Maple Ridge,” he said. “We’ll see how it works, but I think this will work out better for our team.” Last season, the Maple Ridge-based team had only three players from Maple Ridge on its 20-player roster.

part in a preventative fitness program. People involved in physical work can prevent or minimize low back strains or disc injuries. Even those people who have sedentary desk jobs are prone to neck and shoulder pain and dysfunction and can benefit from preventative measures. In many of these situations, just a few well chosen exercises can be the difference between performing your job well and being off-work. And just because you have a physical job doesn’t mean that you are fit and well-balanced, and therefore less prone to injury. Too often repetitive movements and the daily fatigue and stresses of work cause tightness of muscle groups, imbalances of strength, and loss of coordination or muscle stabilization. These imbalances can occur naturally with activity and are reinforced with each workday especially if the movements and postures are repetitive and unbalanced. If you choose not to perform some kind of modest preventative exercise program, you are allowing these imbalances to accumulate and sooner or later an injury will develop, whether you are an athlete or not. Unfortunately, it often takes an injury to occur before an athlete or worker to decide to initiate a prevention program. • This information is not a substitute for specific medical opinion – please check with your doctor or therapist before starting any exercise program.

IN MEMORIAM GIFTS

Norm Daykin, born Norman William Daykin, surrounded by family went to be with his Lord early September 05, 2011. Norm was born November 02, 1927 with his twin sister Gladys in the family farm house on Dewdney Trunk. He grew up, went to school, worked the farm with his Dad, married and raised his family in Maple Ridge. In fact Norm lived 81 of his almost 84 years on the property his grandfather purchased in 1915. Norm is survived by his loving wife of 61 years June and daughter Helen (Steve) sons, Ernie (Judy), Roy, Gord (Diane) and Ken (Sherry) His grandchildren Nicole, Richard (Amanda) Christine (Ryan), Michael (Dana), Halley, Pamela (Brent) Jennifer (Troy) Ashley and Nathan. As well as great grandchildren Joshua, Caleb, Tasia, Lucas, and Katie. Norm is also survived by his elder brother Lawrence. Norm often spoke about his growing early years in Haney, working on the farm, adventures that he had with his brother. He was a great source of historical tidbits of the early years of Maple Ridge. Norm was known for his ready smile and infectious laugh…well like more a giggle. People always felt a wee bit happier with the day after Norm went his way. In 1949 a young lady from Edmonton stole Norm’s heart when she arrived at Burnett Fellowship Baptist to help in Sunday School. On August 16, 1950 wedding bells rang in Edmonton for Norm and June as they became husband and wife. Norm was a true BC boy and he brought his bride back to Maple Ridge to live in on the farm. He worked the farm with his Dad, raising chickens and milking cows until 1956. That is when he went to work as a milk tester for the Department of Agriculture and the Dairy Herd Improvement Association. After 2 years in the Chilliwack /Agassiz area it was back to Haney and Pitt Meadows to do the milk testing for the many dairy herds in the area. Once his field testing days were over he worked in the lab in Burnaby and finally the last three years commuting weekly to Victoria. After 31 enjoyable years Norm retired and enjoyed many years of gardening and woodworking…whether at his place or one of the kids. He was always ready to lend a hand or share in the bountiful harvest of his garden. What that greenhouse and garden could produce whether it was flowers or veggies was a true testament to Norm’s “Green Thumb” Burnett Fellowship Baptist was a large part of Norm’s life as well…from 1937 right to recent months. He served on the Board of Deacons as well as following his dad as the treasurer…he served in one or both or those roles for close to 40 years. He also served as an usher, a greeter, gardener and often the general handyman. He loved his church family and gave generously of his time and talents to support on whatever way he could. Norm was proud of his family as well…he took great pleasure in sitting in his recliner watching fi rst the grandkids and then the great grand kids play and laugh. He was also proud of his deep family roots in Maple Ridge…his grandpa Hampton arriving in 1879 and then grandpa Daykin in 1915. He was not afraid to share his thoughts on how he felt things were going in town and how the elected folks could get it a bit better. Dad was a great role model as a husband, dad and grandpa…We will miss dearly his sense of humor and ready smile, his sage advice, his quiet calm presence that was such a sense of security and well being. Celebration of Norm’s Life: the family invites you to a service to be held at 2 pm on Friday September 9,2011 at Burnett Fellowship Baptist 20939 123 Ave. In lieu of flowers a donation to Burnett Fellowship in Norm’s name would be appreciated. A BIG Heart Felt Thank you to the doctors and nursing staff at Ridge Meadows Hospital, Emergency and 2 West wards. Your professional and caring attention for Dad’s care in his final days was outstanding, To the BC Ambulance and Maple Ridge Fire Service the family’s appreciation as well for your assistance in Dad’s time of need. You looked after Dad with care and dignity…We cannot thank you enough! Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.gardenhill.ca
