Lab a ‘reality check’ for Ridge

The neighbourhood is improving despite small setback, according to Maple Ridge mayor. by Maria Rantanen

After police and fire crews cleared out of a meth lab on 224th Street Sunday afternoon, a private cleanup company went to work, emptying the house of all evidence.

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

This weekend’s synthetic drug lab explosion in Haney is a “reality check” for Maple Ridge, according to Mayor Ernie Daykin. There is more work to be done to fix the neighbourhood. Firefighters, police, and hazardous materials professionals were on 224th Street, south of Lougheed Highway, most of Sunday cleaning up after the explosion. “It’s a reminder there are still things we need to address,” Daykin said about the drug lab. “The sad reality is there’s a market for this poison,” he added. But the mayor described the neighbourhood of Haney as having taken several steps forward, and now this is one step back. Daykin was “disappointed” that the lab blew up in the neighbourhood that the District of Maple Ridge has been working to clean up, but he would have been equally disappointed if it had happened in his neighbourhood. The property owner will be billed for police, fire, and cleanup costs, which Daykin said can be several thousand dollars. In addition, if the building Ernie Daykin inspectors find the electrical system has been tampered with, Maple Ridge mayor there will be a “do not habitate” sign on the door. But Daykin is encouraged by the improvements to Haney, including the fact Northumberland Court – a crime-ridden townhouse complex on Fraser Street – was closed down two years ago, and an old gym on 224th Street was demolished. Currently, a high-end hotel is being planned at the bottom of 224th Avenue, across from where a condominium building is under construction. “I’m not going to let [the drug lab] dampen my optimism for that neck of the wood,” Daykin said. Michael Joinson, president of The Always Growing Green Society, a marijuana dispensary on 224th Street (next door to the lab), said the neighbourhood atmosphere in Haney has improved even from when he set up more than a year ago. “I really think there’s more of a community feel now,” Joinson said. “People are more apt to say hello.” While there is still some bad people in the mix, he said there are a lot of good people living there, as well.

Meth lab goes up in smoke Port Haney residents were rocked by the discovery of a synthetic drug operation in their neighbourhood this weekend. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@mrtimes.com

It took a hazmat team, Mounties, firefighters, and members of an integrated clandestine police squad almost a full day to clean up after a meth lab exploded in downtown Maple Ridge Saturday night. It started at about 10:30 p.m. The emergency call came in as a possible structure fire in the 11600 block of 224th Street, but it turned out to be something much more dangerous. When firefighters arrived, smoke was seen billowing out of the house. The tenant was found outside and overheard by neighbours telling fire officials his hot water tank blew. RCMP Staff Sgt. Hector Lee confirmed that the occupant tried to “shoo away” fire crews. “There was a male apparently at the house and he took off pretty quickly after he found out the fire department was going to go in the house,” Lee told The TIMES.

Coke, heroin seized Ridge Meadows RCMP are recommending charges of possession of controlled substances for the purpose of trafficking against a 20-year-old Maple Ridge man. Mounties pulled him over on Thorne Avenue in Maple Ridge just after 2 p.m. Saturday and seized about 29 grams of cocaine, crack cocaine, and heroin, as well as other items that are consistent with dealing drugs. The suspect will have to appear in court in November 2011. • More police news at www.mrtimes.com, click on “News”

Hundreds of people converged on the Alouette Lake day-use area in Golden Ears Provincial Park to celebrate B.C. Parks 100th anniversary on Saturday. The party was called Artists in the Park, and Lindy Sisson was happy with the celebration. “To me this is the perfect blend, there’s music wafting over to the art booths, children creating hats, and the smell of campfires,” said Sisson, executive director of Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Art Council and the ACT. “It’s a combination of arts and nature and people enjoying both.”

Gabriel Shepherd, five, was donning his paper hat that he made at B.C. Parks 100th anniversary celebration in Golden Ears Provincial Park on Sunday. See related story on page A19 and more photos online.

Maple Ridge politics

Council attracts young candidate With municipal elections three months away, council hopefuls are coming out of the woodwork. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

A passionate environmentalist like her boss MLA Michael Sather, Carly O’Rourke wants to protect farmland as a Maple Ridge councillor. The 25-year-old constituency assistant for the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows MLA is the latest to declare her intention to run in the November municipal election for one of six councillor seats. O’Rourke was seventh in the race for Maple Ridge council in 2008, and, thus, she just missed being elected. While O’Rourke understands citizens in east Maple Ridge need shopping, she doesn’t advocate developing the Albion Flats west of 105th Avenue. “That’s ALR, that’s farmland,” she said. “I believe we need to protect it.” In 50 to 100 years, Maple Ridge will need to have the capacity to grow food here, therefore, farmers need to be supported. O’Rourke said this could be done by giving more tax incen-

tives to farmers who are struggling or are close to packing it in. She’d like to see a campaign to encourage residents to buy from their local producers. “We have to support [farmers] as much as possible,” she said. She said she has a vision for Maple Ridge as a long-term sustainable city with the capacity of get through a possible future food crisis. O’Rourke grew up in Maple Ridge and graduated from Westview in 2003. After completing an honours communications degree at SFU, she went to work as Sather’s constituency assistant, travelled abroad and then went back to Sather’s office. *** In response to a TIMES’ request, three current Maple Ridge councillors said they intend to run again in the November election. Cheryl Ashlie, Michael Morden, and Judy Dueck all want another term. Ashlie said she’s always had a “keen interest” in politics. She’d like to continue working on the Albion Flats and town centre plans, economic development, and ensure Maple Ridge’s growth reflects the Official Community Plan. She’d also like to continue working with federal and provincial governments to “ensure public policy is reflective

of our community’s needs,” and advocate for “our share of services” from those levels. Dueck said she is running again as she believes she represents a “large portion of the citizens” of Maple Ridge. She’d like to see the implementation of the Albion plan, support for the economic strategy, and the revision of the regional context statement of the OCP so it’s in alignment with the newly adopted Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy. “The biggest issue facing Maple Ridge Council in 2011-2014 is achieving the vision of council

to grow and diversify the economy,” she said. Morden said the single biggest issue facing Maple Ridge is population growth with a lack of infrastructure, jobs, and commerce. He’d like to see initiatives to create more local jobs, curb unnecessary expense, and increase commercial and industrial business. He added he’d “continue to apply basic common sense to cut through to the real issues and push for sensible solutions.”

DIX drops by Bocking barbecue

Elizabeth Rosenau wants to be MLA, while Korleen Carreras is running for Pitt Meadows council.

Mike Bocking (left), Adrian Dix, and Bob D’Eith attended a BC NDP barbecue at Bocking’s house on Saturday.

by Sylver McLaren The head of the British Columbia New Democrats and official opposition leader was on-hand to offer his support to two local NDPers on Saturday. Adrian Dix was among a couple dozen people at a barbecue in Mission at Mike and Kelly Bocking’s house. Bocking and Bob D’Eith have each voiced their desire to be chosen as the NDP candidate for the MLA Maple Ridge–Mission riding in the next election, a seat currently held by BC Liberal Marc Dalton. D’Eith, a lawyer and executive director of Music B.C., said he is dismayed over the cuts to arts. “All these cuts to arts and culture have gotten to the point that someone has to step up,” said D’Eith. “Something like 300 nonprofits are on the brink of collapse because of the

cuts,” added D’Eith, who lives in Maple Ridge with his wife Kelly and their five children. “These are community non-profits, not just in music, but in all areas too. For example, my brother is mentally ill, and I have seen it first-hand,” said D’Eith. “I don’t think the Liberals are sympathetic to that.” D’Eith said he and Bocking are working towards similar goals. “We are on the same team. It doesn’t matter who wins, what matters is that we get the seat,” said D’Eith. Bocking was excited to

entertain Dix at the party in his backyard. The BC NDP elected MLA Adrian Dix in April to replace former leader Carole James. “We are happy to have Adrian here. It’s really an opportunity to come together in a relaxed way and be able to chat informally one-on-one,” said Bocking. “A lot of talk is the upcoming provincial election and we think it’s quite likely to happen,” he said. “We think the Liberals have betrayed the people of Maple Ridge and Mission, most of whom are middle-class and can’t afford any more of the tax burden,” said Bocking.

“There’s a sense that these guys are really out of touch with regular folk like us,” he explained. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Rosenau declared her intention for the seat Michael Sather currently holds – MLA of Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge. Korleen Carreras, cochair of COPE 378, also announced she will run for City council in Pitt Meadows on Nov. 12. Carreras has lived in Pitt Meadows for three and a half years.

Kevin McLean played the pipes as he prepared for the World Bagpipe Championships in Glasgow, Scotland Aug. 13. accepted into medical, dental, and law schools. In what pipe sergeant Jack Lee calls a “major signing” for the band, Robert Mathieson, formerly pipe major with Scottish rivals The House of Edgar Shotts & Dykehead Pipe Band, is coming out of retirement to wear the SFU kilt and compete with the band. Mathieson arrived in town last week and was started practising with the band on Thursday. Also new to the band are former Toronto police lead drummer Doug Stronach, and drummers Owen Russell, formerly with the 78th Fraser Highlanders, from Minnesota, and Nicola Purvis, of the Auckland & District Pipe Band of New Zealand, where Lee and lead drummer Reid Maxwell teach a summer program (in January). “The fact that we’ve consistently

stayed at the top of our game means we’re doing something right,” said Lee. “And yet we can’t take that fact for granted either,” he added. “Our strength continues to be our dedication, commitment, and hard practice.” The SFU band began competing at the worlds in 1983 and has claimed six championships in 1995, 1996, 1999, 2001, 2008, and 2009. Formed in 1966, it was originally made up of pipers and drummers from the neighbouring City of Port Moody Pipe Band, and formally became the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band in 1981. More than 8,000 pipers and a crowd of 40,000 are expected at the Aug. 13 event. The coverage can be accessed at bbc.co.uk/worlds.

Kevin McLean loved the bagpipes as a kid. Now the 20-year-old man from Maple Ridge will be competing in the land of the pipers at the world bagpipe championships as a member of one of the top international bands. The Simon Fraser University Pipe Band will be vying for its seventh world bagpipe championship when members compete in Glasgow, Scotland on Aug. 13. McLean worked his way up to the Grade 1 band after first learning to play the pipes at an SFU summer camp. “I really liked listening to bagpipe music when I was little,” McLean said. “When I saw it [bagpipe playing] in the SFU summer camp schedule, I kind of jumped all over it,” he recalled of first taking up the instrument in 2003. “There’s such a strong community of pipers around here,” McLean added. “When you get into it, you kind of join the piping family. You can’t really leave it.” The 46-member band, which has placed in the top three at the worlds for the past 12 years, is wrapped up a busy summer performance schedule and completed its final practice sessions on Burnaby Mountain and in Surrey before heading to Scotland. The band is an eclectic mix of ages and personalities and can lay claim to being “professional” in more ways than one – several musicians either work or have been recently

Our View

Stock market deja vu time Hey, remember three years ago, when the stock market was in freefall, Europe’s finances were looking shaky, and any government help was uncertain at best? Welcome to 2008, part two. On Thursday last week, stocks did a double flip off the high board and headed for the bottom of the deep end. A one-day blip would have been bad news on its own, but it was the capper to two weeks of gradually crumbling stock prices, which were fuelled by a couple of months of shaky economic forecasts, mostly bad news on job creation in the U.S., and a European debt crisis that’s spreading like chicken pox in a classroom of unvaccinated kids. Canada had a tough recession, but generally fared better, and has bounced back a little stronger, than our neighbour to the south. Our housing market did not implode. (But it might this time – nothing like a financial panic to pop the housing bubble.) If there was a consensus about what caused the last recession, it was that letting financial wizards do whatever they want is not a good idea. That selling homes to anyone with a pulse is not good business sense. And that there was too much debt, both private and public, sloshing around. In three years, the sub-prime mortgage part of that trifecta has pretty much taken care of itself in the U.S. The other two parts? Not so much. The response of governments, at home and abroad, was to prop up and restart the same system that got us into this mess. A few new rules were passed here, a few regulations there, but we upgraded from an Edsel to a Pinto, at best. We need to look at the way our economy works, and consider if it really does. Work, that is. Is it doing what we want it to do, and can it be changed for the better? The old saying here is apt. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

Painful Truth


Mailbag

Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows Times

Downtown Maple Ridge

Drug house indicative of a bigger Port Haney problem I don’t want to rain on the Port Haney Initiative efforts to improve the neighbourhood, but the fact is this is still a major drug area.

The prostitutes who operate here, do so because their drug dealers are down the street at the “Pine.” As soon as they do their tricks they run to get their fixes.

HST

Votes ill-motivated Dear Editor,

Well, my vote is cast and now I await to see if the province cuts off its nose to spite its face. The reasons I have heard as argument to get rid of the HST are emotional or political, not what is best. People are either using it as a political bandwagon to get new voters: to show Gordon Campbell how much we don’t like him or as a temper tantrum because the government didn’t show the citizens of this province respect in how they brought it in. I am a teacher and a small business owner. As a teacher, I am obviously not a fan of Gordon Campbell, Christy Clark, or any government that shows disrespect to education and health issues. However what is best for the province? Being part of the union, I believe in proper process; not making important decisions without input from those most affected. However, what is best for the province? I, like many of my colleagues, need two jobs to support our families. I am 61, have a degree, two diplomas and a masters and my salary and health benefits are inadequate to support my family. As a small business owner, the HST has helped big time. Many of my customers are surprised that we charge the lowest price given on our books and they are still only paying five per cent tax just like before the HST. If we lose the HST, my business will be hit and I will have to raise my prices. How is this good for the province? So, yes people, if the HST is out, 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 your medical care. If we have to bring back the PST it will cost us billions. We need to reinstitute all the bureaucracy to process it, pay the federal government back… Where do people think that money is going to come from? It will create higher taxes, as well as even less money for education or health. So, did you vote because you were mad or because you did what was best, in the big picture, for you and the province?

Electioneering

Pushing for development Dear Editor,

I do admire Maple Ridge’s majestic beauty; its lovely parks, tranquil streams and waterways, its wildlife, trails etc. But my rapture is soon checked when I realize that we are basically a bedroom community; a great place to live but not to work, not to do business, and not to spend our hard-earned dollars in. Developers are made to “squeeze through the eye of a needle” slowing down their project until it isn’t economically feasible. One developer basically said to me “hey I can’t do business here expeditiously, where as Coquitlam welcomes us with open arms. Sixty-six per cent of our population work outside of Maple Ridge and most of their shopping dollars are correspondingly spent outside Maple Ridge. Yet, we have a golden opportunity on the Albion Flats on both sides of the Lougheed Highway, yet again we drag our heels as Mission and Coquitlam develop more business parks and Wal-Marts, etc.

Grover E. Telford, Maple Ridge [Editor’s note: Grover Telford previously declared he is seeking a seat on Maple Ridge council this fall.]

The meth lab [See story page A1] is just one more example of how the area is used for the production and sale of drugs. I walk by that house every morning on the way to work, and I’m happy that it didn’t blow up when I was walking by. I believe it is the responsibility of the owners who rent to these people to avoid these operations. And, I hope that the owner is billed for the expense of cleaning it up. I’m not too sure how the Port Haney initiative is affecting change in the area. I’m not trying to blame them, but I think enforcement is the only way. John McKenzie , Maple Ridge

[Editor’s note: John McKenzie previously declared he’s seeking a seat on Maple Ridge council this fall.]

Reaction

Personal attacks uncalled for, ever Dear Editor,

When I saw Mr. Tucker’s letter [Campbell’s appointment outrageous, July 14, TIMES], I thought it abusive and attempted to reply denouncing such attitude, pointing out that, I, too have criticized politicians publicly, but never with careless use of innuendos. That method of reply is what people with a personal vengeance use, neglecting literary decency, or any thought that politicians have families who can read. However, with the editor’s bracketed comment [Politicians critical targets, Aug. 2, TIMES] that I am performing “weak libel chill,” support I assume of such behaviour, I feel much better about my decision to reprimand Mr. Tucker. His statement suggesting that Mr. Campbell belongs on a list of “political thieves, robbers, and liars” is a far cry from people referring to current tax levels as “political thievery and deceit.” Lorne Riding Maple Ridge

Education

School delivers cultural insight Registration is now open for September classes with a group honouring to preserve the differences of Japan.

by Ronda Payne

editorial@mrtimes.com

About 28 years ago, a group of Japanese-speaking moms was discussing the need to ensure their children learned about their culture. From this desire, the Maple Ridge Japanese Language Association was born. This non-profit, independent association runs classes on Saturdays from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., September to June. While the origins of the groups were to pass the culture on to second- and third-generation Japanese children, the school is open to children age six to 18 of all ethnicities who share an interest in the culture. “It is not solely Japanese children anymore,” said association treasurer Susan Paquette. “We have a number of Korean and Caucasian children as well.” Sensei Emiko Hiruta

BACK TO SCHOOL SAVINGS

The Cherry Blossom Festival was held in April at the Maple Ridge Library when Jessica Kwok showed a participant how to do origami. came on board as the principal, and now, after 28 years she is stepping back to allow another teacher to serve at the helm. Hiruta will continue teaching with the association. “They [the Japanese moms who started the group] decided to hire a teacher to teach language, origami and culture,” Paquette noted. Classes are split into different age groups and experience levels and there is also help available for those who are taking the Grade 11 provincial Japanese exam. Class sizes are small, with about five or six students per class, and

the focus is on interactive learning whether it is reading, writing, and speaking or origami, games, and food. “It is fun, the kids enjoy it, they love it,” Paquette commented. Costs are quite reasonable Paquette noted, at $55 a month with a $45 initial membership. Discounts apply for multiple children from the same family. Registration is now open for September classes, which will be held at the Maple Ridge Library. To enrol children or find out more information, contact Susan Paquette at 604-465-2894 or email bodenquette@telus.net.

Walker still leads Among Canadians who played in Major League Baseball, only Larry Walker of Maple Ridge hit more home runs than Matt Stairs. Walker hit 383 home runs in 17 seasons, while Stairs hit 265 in 19 seasons. Stairs, who played for a record 13 teams during his 19-year major-league career, is hanging up his spikes. On Wednesday, two days after he was released by the Washington Nationals, the Saint John, N.B., native said he is stepping away from the game. • More online: www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

Senior A lacrosse

Gritty Burrards bounce back Maple Ridge has a chance to even its WLA playoff series with New Westminster Salmonbellies tonight at Planet Ice.

Chuck Russell photo/Golf Canada

Maple Ridge Burrards’ Riley Loewen tracked down a loose ball while being pressured by a pair of New Westminster Salmonbellies Friday at Planet Ice Maple Ridge. The Salmonbellies won 13-6 to take a 2-0 lead in the bestof-seven, Western Lacrosse Association playoff series.

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@mrtimes.com

Maple Ridge Burrards showed on Sunday that they still have lots of fight left in them. A 9-8 win over the New Westminster Salmonbelllies at New West’s Queen’s Park Arena gave the Burrards some life, in the best-ofseven, Western Lacrosse Association playoff semifinal. Had they lost, the Burrards would have found themselves down threegames-to-none and teetering on the precipice of elimination heading into game four tonight (Tuesday) at Planet Ice. Now, they have a chance to even the series at two games apiece. “It’s typical behaviour of our team when we have our backs against the wall,” Burrards’ coach Daren Fridge said, noting that Maple Ridge won three of its final four regular season games, a big reason why the team qualified for the playoffs. Sunday’s victory served as a much-needed defibrillator for a Maple Ridge squad that appeared to be flat-lining after dropping the first two games of the series. “You go down 3-0 [in games] and in some respects, you’re desperate,” Fridge said. “With us bringing it back to 2-1, we can be more creative with what we’re trying to do.” Maple Ridge’s push-back game was the result of a combination of things, Fridge said: “We’ve been beat up and pushed around and we sent a message that we will battle through the BS and focus on what we’re trying to do – and that’s score more goals than the other team.” Fridge didn’t deny that the

Burrards aren’t fond of the favoured ’Bellies. “ I think it’s about respect,” he said. “Do we have the firepower to match their firepower? Right now we’re getting there.” Tonight’s game has a 7:45 start time. Burrards 9, Salmonbellies 8 On Sunday, the visiting Burrards led 7-2 at one point of the second period and 9-4 on Aaron Pascas’s goal 5:56 into the final frame, and then held on tight after the ’Bellies scored the final four goals of the night. Randy Daly with two goals and two assists, along with Pascas, Curtis Dickson and Riley Loewen with a pair each led the Burrards’ offence. Derek Lowe scored a single marker for the visitors. New West’s leading scorer during the regular season, Ilija Gajic, was missing from the ’Bellies’ lineup for the second straight game. Salmonbellies 13, Burrards 6 In game two Friday at Planet Ice, the ’Bellies led 9-5 in the third period before notching four unanswered goals to move ahead 13-5. New West scored the first four goals of the game and led 6-2 heading into the first intermission. The second period was much

closer, with New West holding a 3-2 edge in goals. Jordan McBride, Kevin Crowley, Cliff Smith, and Sean Robinson all had two-goal games for New Westminster. Peter Tellis, Daly, Joel Dalgarno, Pascas, Dickson, and Creighton Reid scored for the Burrards. Salmonbellies 11, Burrards 8 The ’Bellies beat the Burrards by three goals in the opener Wednesday at Queen’s Park Arena. The Burrards came within a goal, at 9-8, after Pascas scored on a powerplay at the five-minute mark of the third period. The hosts responded with goals from Curtis Manning at 12 minutes and Smith at the 17:59 mark to get a little more breathing room. The score was tied at 3-3 after the first period. New West out-scored Maple Ridge 6-4 in the middle frame. It was a chippy affair with 90 minutes in penalties between the two teams and included fisticuffs involving six players with 55 seconds to go in the game. Smith scored a hat trick to lead the ’Bellies’ offence. Dalgarno scored three times for the Burrards while Reid tallied twice in a losing effort.

Kevin Kwon from Pitt Meadows watched the ball soar after his tee shot at Morgan Creek Golf Course in South Surrey.

Golf

Kwon best in Canada

Kevin Kwon carded a final round three-underpar 69 to capture both the Junior and Juvenile Division titles at the 2011 Canadian Junior Boys Championship at Morgan Creek Golf Course in South Surrey. In total, the Pitt Meadows product ended up with a four-day tally of 16-under par 272, Kwon, who posted a personal-best score of seven-under par 65 on Wednesday, earned an 11stroke victory in the Junior Division over defending 2010 champion Richard Jung of Toronto. Kwon’s margin of victory in the Junior Division matched the all-time mark of 11 strokes set by Brent Franklin in 1984 and equaled by Nick Taylor in ’06, while the 16-year-old’s cumulative score of 272 matched James Lepp’s performance at the ’02 event for the second-lowest overall Junior division score over 72 holes of play. “This is the highlight of my career so far,” Kwon said. • More online at www.mrtimes.com, click on “Sports”

Baseball

Tourney win turns Royals into B.C. bantam A kings The host Royals were perfect in winning the BC Minor Bantam A Baseball Championships. A total of 10 teams qualified for the tournament, that ran from Thursday until Sunday at Pitt Meadows Athletic Park. The Royals, managed by Les Giles, started off the tournament by defeating Vernon, the top seed in the B pool, by a 9-2 score. Derrick Adams was selected MVP of the game after pitching five innings and allowing just two runs. In the second game, the Royals came from behind in the top of the seventh inning to score two

runs during a 2-1 win over the Cloverdale Spurs. Game MVP Chris Bailey pitched five innings to stop the Spurs. Against Tsawwassen, Devon Draper drew MVP honou rs with a four-run grand slam to tie the score at nine runs apiece and force the game into extra innings. Then, Clayton Skipper scored Austin Demeule from third on a squeeze bunt for the winning run. The wins kept coming, with Justice Eely pitching five innings to stymie the Chilliwack Cougars. Draper added a solo home run to give the Royals an 8-2 victory and

first place in Pool B. Sunday’s semifinal saw Vancouver jump out to a 4-2 lead in the fifth inning, before the Royals answered with three runs in the bottom of the last inning after Alejandro Torres, Tristan Reed, and Draper all singled and Demeule hit a double to score the winning run and garner MVP honours. The Royals rematched with Cloverdale in the championship game. Clayton Skipper earned the MVP award when he combined with the pitching efforts of Draper and

Bailey to beat the Spurs 7-3. The rest of the Royals are Trevor Reed, Joe Soderholm, Joe Sheridan, and Jared Clark. ••• The Royals had a problem winning at one of the two diamonds at Pitt Meadows Athletic Park, so Giles decided to get the team to sign a baseball and bury it at second base to remove the stigma of losing. The Royals went on to play three more games at Diamond 1 and went undefeated. The ball has been retrieved and sits on Giles’ desk at his home.

For one week in October small is beautiful.

Celtic and Metis dance entwine The history of Metis jigging was explained during a culturally rich performance at Golden Ears park. by Sylver McLaren

smclaren@mrtimes.com

One is in a kilt and the other in an aboriginal dress – together they are Bannock and Oatmeal. Lisa Shepherd, a Metis artisan, and Jillian Knuttila, a dancer and teacher at Stave Falls Scottish Dancers, teamed up to perform the theatrical monologue at the B.C. Parks 100th anniversary celebration at Golden Ears Provincial Park on Saturday. The script was written by Shepherd during her search for her Metis history. When the Maple Ridge mother was pregnant with her now five-year-old son Gabriel she began to explore her link with Metis culture and history. “Metis is a culture that was created here in Canada. Some people have a hard time wrapping their head around who the Metis are as their own race, we are not defined as half aboriginal and half white,” Shepherd explained. “A lot of people don’t understand that Metis originates from a blending of Aboriginal and usually European, but not necessarily European,” she said. During part of Bannock and Oatmeal, Shepherd and Knuttila demonstrate how the Metis belt dance and the Scottish sword dance are blended. Shepherd does her

Parks Sunday. fancy footwork on top of crossed leather belts and Knuttila does her Celtic dance over crossed swords. “It is the history of the Metis dance developing in a kitchen party from Irish and Scottish Celtic dance. If you take Irish high stepping and Scottish Highland dance and let them grow up in a Canadian kitchen party, then you have Metis jigging,” explained Shepherd. “It is great learning about the rich Metis culture and performing alongside such great artists,” said Knuttila. “I’m glad that we can show how cultures influence each other.” The ladies dance to the sounds of

aboriginal fiddler Ron Gerard and Scottish bagpiper Carl Hansen. Gerard is an aboriginal and Metis musician and joined this creative group because “it is right on the button” for him, he said. “I want to play and market the Metis fiddle,” said Gerard. Gerard knows his Metis history, according to Shepherd. “Ron is the real thing; he brings his knowledge to us. We’ve learned a lot through some of his music. He knows the songs because they were passed down first-hand from previous generations,” said Shepherd. “I was breastfed the music,” added Gerard. Shepherd wrote Bannock and Oatmeal while she was trying to differentiate herself as a Metis person, she said. “But now I want to show that it doesn’t matter, that we all come from the same place. When you embrace the culture you realize we’re all the same. I’ve come full circle.” She also created Bannock and Oatmeal as a tribute to her greatgreat-great-grandfather Cuthbert Grant Jr., an original Metis with a Cree mother and a Scottish father. She has performed the monologue from the West Coast all the way to Manitoba. Next summer the chief of the Grant clan of Scotland is visiting Manitoba and Shepherd wants to raise money to travel to Manitoba and perform Bannock and Oatmeal on her great-great-great-grandfather’s land, which used to be called Grant’s Town, but is now known as St. Francois Xavier.
