Albion

Ridge council awaits ALC comments on farmland Land commission meets the week of Oct. 24 to deal with Albion Flats. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

There is a good probability the Albion Flats issue will be left for the next council to deal with as the

agricultural land commission has yet to meet to discuss the burning local matter. Maple Ridge council met with the commission a few months ago and were expecting ALC’s comments about the Albion Flats before they decided whether to submit an exclusion application and, if so, what that application

would look like. The ALC meets the week of Oct. 24 and that’s when they plan to deal with the Albion Flats issue. Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin said he hoped comments come “sooner rather than later.” “I want to see us get to a conclusion, whatever that conclusion is,” Daykin said. “Then we can move

on to the next challenge.” The October ALC meeting is, however, about three weeks before the municipal election and that could leave a decision on whether to apply to have the land excluded from the land reserve on to the next council’s plate – hence making it an election issue. Daykin pointed out the

commission doesn’t have adequate funding to meet more often, causing the delay in the local issue. Council has a meeting with the Minister of Agriculture Don McRae at this week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, and they plan to bring up the problem of inadequate funding for the ALC. Daykin said the ALC is a

“critical piece” of government work, and “it needs to be funded adequately.” While Councillor Cheryl Ashlie said she welcomes the prospect of having a “public conversation” about the Albion Flats during the election, she think the public’s patience will be pushed to “the limit” if left to the next council.

Literacy

Volunteers help raise good readers Local volunteers will be at West Coast Express stations on Wednesday morning raising money for literacy. by Maria Rantanen

mrantanen@mrtimes.com

The head of the school district believes that reading is the most important first skill for success – that’s why she’ll be out at a West Coast Station hawking papers and collecting donations for Raise-a-Reader early Wednesday morning. “If you can’t read, it debilitates all aspects of your life and really has an impact on esteem and success,” said Jan Unwin, superintendent of schools in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. There will be school district staff and trustees along with other community volunteers at the three local West Coast Express Stations starting with the first train of the morning. They will be there when the first train arrives till the last one leaves. They will be selling newspapers and the cost – which isn’t limited to the actual cost of a newspaper – will go toward literacy initiatives. Raise-a-Reader is a Postmedia Inc. initiative – The TIMES is part of Postmedia. Other volunteers from the community will also be at West

Hundreds of people showed up to celebrate Alouette River in Maple Ridge today. by Sylver McLaren

Metro Vancouver has purchased almost seven hectares of Fraser River foreshore for a larger regional park on Barnston Island , which is directly across from Pitt Meadows. The new parkland is at Mann Point, the east point of the island. Most of Mann Point is now secured as park land. “Almost half a kilometre of riverfront in the geographic heart of this urban region is now protected parkland. Metro Vancouver now has parkland at both the east and west points of Barnston Island,” said Gayle Martin, chair of Metro Vancouver’s parks committee. • More online at www.mrtimes.com

The fish were biting at the fishing pond at Allco Park Sunday. Kids were reeling in rainbow trout after rainbow trout at the Rivers Day celebration at the Alouette River Management Society (ARMS) facility and hatchery in north Maple Ridge. Rivers Day has been celebrated in B.C. since 1980, and worldwide since 2005. Maple Ridge began celebrating Alouette River in 1994 in Allco Park. “We’ve got lots going on here,” said Amanda Crowston, executive director of ARMS. B.C. Federation of Drift Fishers (BCFDF) was running the children’s fishing pond. “[BCFDF] have been volunteering their time, their equipment, and their expertise, and the kids get to catch a trout, and if they want, they can have it cleaned and take it home,” said Crowston.

Sylver McLaren/TIMES

Rivers Day was celebrated with live music, fishing, barbecue, exhibitions, birds, bouncy castles, and a fishing simulator. “The hatchery is run by Fraser Regional Correctional Centre and has been run by B.C. Corrections since its inception in 1979,” explained Crowston, a Maple Ridge Secondary graduated who has worked at ARMS for five years. “It’s great here because it’s so close to town, but you still get a sense of connecting with nature,” she said. Since the hatchery opened, they’ve reared and released 35,000,000 salmon. After the BC

Hydro dam was built, there no longer was pink and chinook salmon in the Alouette River. Both have been restored. Chinook salmon eggs are brought in from the Chilliwack River and are raised into fry at the hatchery. The restoration of chum salmon has been so successful that they are no longer raised at the hatchery. Pink salmon is stable and is also continuing on its own without help from the hatchery. The coho salmon population is still in trouble, Crowston said, but ARMS is still trying to boost its population.

Corrections

Women’s prison expands by Sylver McLaren smclaren@mrtimes.com

As a new crime bill moves toward law, prisons across Canada undergo their largest expansion since the 1930s. The federal government is adding 2,700 beds, and the provinces and territories have added or are adding a further 7,000, at an estimated cost of $4 billion. BC Corrections’ current capital expansion is the largest expansion of correctional capacity in the province’s history. This $185-million investment will add 340 cells across the province, including 104 cells at Alouette Correctional Centre for Women (ACCW), to be ready in early 2012. ACCW is the largest female custody facility in the province. The centre houses women offenders of mediumand open-security levels from all areas of the province. Remanded women who are similarly classified are also housed at the centre. ACCW has 89 cells and its average daily count in 2009/10 was 103. The addition of 104 cells could provide 208 additional inmates, said Dean Purdy, chairman of the Corrections and Sheriff’s Services Unit of the B.C. Government Employees Union, depending on if the prison decides to “double-bunk” the cells.

Prison expansions:

Kent Institution: Agassiz, 96 new beds; Mission Institution: 96 new beds; Ferndale Institution: Mission, 50 new beds; Matsqui Institution: Abbotsford, 96 new beds; Pacific Institution/ Regional Treatment Centre: Abbotsford, 96 new beds; Fraser Valley Institution: Abbotsford, 24 new beds; William Head Institution: Victoria, 40 new beds; ACCW: Maple Ridge, 104 new cells; Surrey Pretrial Services Centre: Surrey, 216 new cells. – with files from Postmedia Network Inc.

Our View

Wrong laws need righting A person is only worth as much as the money he or she earns. At least that’s the law in British Columbia as it pertains to civil actions based on wrongful death suits. Children, the elderly, the disabled, the unemployable… all are worthless when it comes to families’ attempts to seek compensation – or understanding – for the loss of a loved one through accident, a doctor’s or care professional’s errors in judgment, or negligence. You have the right to sue for malpractice, but unless the victim put food on your table, the law in B.C. prevents any awards for damages. In fact, under the laws of B.C. – which are based on archaic United Kingdom jurisprudence that dates back to 1846, and lag far behind most other jurisdictions in Canada – it is often more convenient, for instance, for a doctor to accidentally kill than to injure a patient. The Family Compensation Act considers only a deceased individual’s earnings or earning potential. It doesn’t account for emotional losses – or even the physical, financial consequences of losing a dear family member, other than specific outlays of money. You’re depressed over the loss of a loved one, and you’re missing work… or lost your job… or are unable to continue in your career? Too bad. None of that counts. A number of groups have been lobbying for a change to the law. The living victims say they aren’t doing it for the money, but to force greater accountability in cases of wrongful death. It’s their hope that allowing more rational consideration of all the costs in a wrongful death will result in less wrongful deaths from occurring. And the provincial government has indicated – for years – that it is willing to shift to more progressive legislation. Everyone is eagerly waiting. – B.G.

Beast of B.C.

Bloy should be No compassion for Clifford Olson apologizing Dear Editor,

I am pleased that the provincial government has extended the Community Living B.C. programs at Ridge Meadows Recycling and Maple Ridge–Pitt Meadows Community Services. It is unfortunate, however, that the government has specified these programs will be extended for one year. This leaves the clients of these programs, their families, caregivers, and support staff not knowing what will happen next fall. The government is clearly leaving its options open. Given the quality, proven efficacy, and community support for the supported employment program at Ridge Meadows recycling and the supported volunteer program at community services, this is disturbing. There is little doubt the provincial government is trying to cut costs on the backs of individuals with special needs and their support network. This is unforgiveable. [Now former] Social Development Minister Harry Bloy is calling on CLBC to apologize for this fiasco. The minister is responsible for his ministry, which includes CLBC. He should have been aware of plans for such significant program cuts. If he wasn’t aware of the planned cuts it calls into question his ability to manage his ministry. Either way it’s Minister Bloy who should apologize. Disturbing allegations about the supported employment program at Ridge Meadows recycling remain. CLBC maintained that the society was “not in compliance with employment standards.” CLBC even claimed that the society had been informed as long as 15 years ago that they were out of compliance. CLBC’s rationale was that, since some caregivers drop the person they are responsible for off at the recycling depot in the morning and pick them up at the end of the day at 4 p.m., the society should be paying them for a full day. Not that CLBC would fund them for a full day in any case. The reality is that this is a modified work program to serve the particular needs of these workers and they are paid for every hour they work. This employment standards allegation is a red herring. When CLBC informed the recycling society that they were terminating the program, no mention was made of non-compliance with employment standards. I believe these planned cuts were part of the Clark government’s ham-fisted attempt to pay for the disastrous and expensive HST campaign that they waged on British Columbians. It’s clear that the Liberal government in Victoria has little respect for the supported employment and volunteer programs in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. I believe they’d prefer our recycling centre run by a private company. As one CLBC official said to me “most of these programs [non-profit recycling] were gotten rid of years ago.” I believe Christy Clark is putting the interests of private business above those of people with special needs, despite the fact that our communities strongly support these programs. I guess her vision of “families first” doesn’t include these folks. That’s sad. Michael Sather, MLA Maple Ridge–Pitt Meadows

Dear Editor,

Let Canadians rejoice in the suffering last days of Clifford Olson, who is reported to be dying of terminal cancer. This demonic low-life should have been executed long ago if we did not have a society plagued with bleeding hearts. He has cost taxpayers millions of dollars in the past 30 years and made a mockery of the inept RCMP and our courts. Let the victims’ families finally get closure and hope for the same fate of other costly monsters in jail like Paul Bernardo and Russell Williams, who will suck [money from] us long after Olson’s overdue demise. We need to adopt “death penalty” with DNA accuracy to expunge the scum of society like Olson. May he rot in hell for his sick crimes. Where is my compassion? Sorry, it goes to deserving others, including victims and their families. Kerwin Maude, Pitt Meadows

Dear Editor,

Bringing in even more international students is not the right way to create more jobs in B.C. I’m a B.C. native and a student at the University of B.C. and I have many friends who are international students. It’s hard enough getting into a post-secondary school with the competition from your own province and country, let alone trying to compete with international students, too! I don’t see how taking away spots from Canadian students and giving them away to international students is going to help the B.C. economy.

Municipal politics

Fresh blood needed Dear Editor,

This letter is in response to Grover Telford’s [Exodus like Ten Commandments, Sept. 22 Letters, TIMES]. I have been scratching my head for over a decade wondering how teams of mayor and council over the years can be so inept that they can’t pave the road for some decent shopping and tax base creation in our community. At this point it’s beyond ridiculous and I don’t want to hear any more excuses as to why they haven’t chosen and started to build up a location to support local new shopping. What I would like to hear is a public apology from our current mayor and council, and admission that they are not and have not done nearly enough to make this a reality. It is absolutely infuriating to see year after year pass by with no solid plans in place, while our community grows and grows without the infrastructure it needs and deserves. Here’s hoping for a fresh flush of capable political representatives who can actually plan and get something done.

Volunteerism

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup was a great Canadian success in Pitt Meadows yesterday. Items were collected along the shore at the south end of Harris Road by 17 volunteers, five more than last year. A total of 138 kilograms (304 pounds) was collected. Of that,more than half was recycable (79 kilograms) and there was eight kilograms of returnable cans and bottles. “This is a new spot for us,” said Laurie Darcus, City of Pitt Meadows director of corporate services, who left her business attire at home and was sporting rubber gloves. “Because we can get right down to the water, we are able to bring up a lot of marine garbage thats been stuck in the mud,” she said. Councillor Deb Walters was out there getting dirty, too. “I’m pleased that we didn’t find as much garbage as the year before,” she said. “So, that means the education is working,” Walters added. Darcus explained that most of the stuff they collected will be recycled, some will go to the garbage, and some will be donated to a non-profit or charity. As co-chair for the city’s green team, Darcus is site coordinator for the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a conservation initiative of the Vancouver Aquarium

For last year’s cleanup along the Alouette River, Darcus organized a local paddling club to come with their canoes, enabling her team to clean previously inaccessible areas along the river. “Site coordinators are critical to the success of the cleanup,” said Jill Dwyer, program manager for the GCSC. “These outstanding volunteers show us just how much clean, healthy shorelines and communities mean to them.”

Mallory scooped in third round

A successful field lacrosse player from Pitt Meadows was drafted to the National Lacrosse League by a team in Washington State. Peewee Knight Tato Ferreyro-Araya carried a pigskin for the blue

Knights battle on The peewee gold team beat the peewee blue team 6-0, in a tight defensive battle. The gold team was led by Eric Tweten, Jaydeep Sachar and Jackson Smith. In four games, the defence allowed an average of less than 10 points per game and this will be a key to their success in the playoffs. On offence, Cody Stewart and Brock Pelwecki provided great blocking for the running attack. Chase Wise, Anthony Cameron, Liam Cumarasamy, and Adam Brass made key tackles for the blue on the defensive side. • More online at www.mrtimes.com

Former Pitt Meadows Secondary student Mike Mallory was the number 21 pick in the 2011 National Lacrosse League (NLL) entry draft held Sept. 21 in Toronto, Ont. Mallory was selected in the third round by the NLL’s Washington Stealth. Mallory currently plays junior A box lacrosse for the Delta Islanders where he has been selected as a First Team All-Star in both 2010 and 2011, in addition to being named the 2010 BCJALL Rookie of the Year and 3 Star Award winner. In 43 regular season games, Mallory has tallied 78 goals and 100 assists for 178 points. He has also registered 19 goals and 19 assists for 38 points in 11 play-off games with the Islanders. The 6’2”, 190-pound Pitt

Meadows native played two seasons with Burnaby Mountain from 2006-2008, helping lead the Selects to successful tournaments in California, Florida, Maryland, and Seattle, including a first place finish at the 2006 Seattle Space Needle Shootout. A member of the inaugural Burnaby Mountain Selects U18 Elite team, Mallory becomes the first Selects player to be drafted professionally since the inception of the program in 2006. NLL is North America’s professional indoor lacrosse league, featuring the best lacrosse players in the world. Founded in 1987, the league recently completed its 2011 season, the league’s 25th anniversary season. Average game attendance is close to 10,000 fans per game, with several games played in front of crowds in excess of 16,000 fans. The NLL has nine teams playing in major markets of the United States and Canada: Buffalo Bandits, Calgary Roughnecks, Colorado Mammoth, Edmonton Rush, Minnesota Swarm, Philadelphia Wings, Rochester Knighthawks, Toronto Rock and Washington Stealth.
