City staffer risking return to education Laurie Darcus will start a two-year master’s of archeology program this fall at SFU.

by Maria Rantanen

This September, thousands of kids and young adults will be hitting the books again as schools, colleges, and universities re-open for the fall session. But one 51-year-old will join those ranks as a full-time student after a long career in municipal affairs. Laurie Darcus, currently director of corporate services with the City of Pitt Meadows, will start on her master’s degree in archeology at SFU this fall, a two-year effort. After completing her BA with a double major in archeology and anthropology a few years ago, Darcus thought she was done studying. The decision to go back to school full-time came to Darcus when she was in Ethiopia from April 26 to June 13 doing research on grinding stones. “I think I had to be While it’s a huge risk for at a point in my life Darcus quitting a stable job, she said there’s a where I could take point in one’s life when risks.” one has to accept signs, Laurie Darcus follow a passion, and “make life worthwhile.” “It’s a risk, a big risk, a huge risk,” Darcus said, “but here I go.” While she started university after high school, with plans for a career in journalism, Darcus said she doesn’t regret not finishing then – financial circumstances didn’t allow her to continue. Now, though, at 51, with her mortgage paid off, she’s ready to take the plunge. “I think I had to be at a point in my life where I could take risks,” Darcus said. Darcus’s great-grandmothers on both sides were First Nations, which initially sparked her interest in archeology and anthropology: “I was interested in finding out about the world views of my ancestors,” she said. But when she started doing field work in Africa three years ago, she really found her passion. In 2009, she went as a student to do field work in Benin in western Africa. In 2010, she returned as a volunteer and supervisor, this time helping the Beninese learn how to do archeological work. Because a lot of the history of the Beninese is written by the colonial powers, they are often portrayed as “savages,” whereas current archeological work shows the society was highly developed, with hierarchies and trade systems.

Pitt Meadows has become a regular on the bluegrass circuit with a regular biweekly bluegrass circle. Now its champions want to take it a step farther and are organizing a mini-bluegrass festival in mid September. The Bergthorson Academy of Musical Arts and the BAMA Bluegrass Circle are piloting the one-day festival in the hopes it grows in the coming years. The event will be emceed by bluegrass musician and music teacher Denis Leclerc. The festival, which takes place on Saturday, Sept. 15 at the Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall, is being dubbed a birthday party for Bill Monroe – the man who coined the term bluegrass and was a pioneer in the musical genre. Monroe would have been 101 years old this September. Bluegrass is experiencing a “big resurgence” all over North America, said Bob Hornsey with Bergthorson Academy of Musical Arts. Maria Rantanen/TIMES It’s partly due to the 2000 Rob Hornsey and Denis Leclerc are organizing a bluegrass festival in Pitt movie O Brother Where Art Meadows on Sept. 15.

Workshops start at 4:30 p.m. and the main doors open at 7 p.m. There will be a workshop with John Reischman on mastering the mandolin from 4:30 to 6 p.m. There will also be two other bluegrass master classes: a guitar workshop with Lee Watson and a banjo with Nick Hornebuckle. The headliner on the main stage will be John Reischman and the Jaybirds. Just before the main stage event and in between sets, there will be a “jam scramble,” whereby musicians put their name in a hat and they are drawn – one name from the guitar hat, one from the bass hat, and so forth. The musicians chosen then form a group and have 20 minutes to come up with a song, rehearse it, and then they have to perform it.

No human error in mill fire Recent fires in Maple Ridge levelled two homes and a mill’s workshop. by Sylver McLaren

Human error is not to blame for a fire that burned part of a mill in Ruskin. The Aug. 26 fire destroyed the production shop of the Waldun Forest Products shake and shingle mill, putting 60 people temporarily out of work. A main electrical box, which was not due for inspection until October, has been deemed the cause of the fire, according to the mill’s vice-president Kirk Nagy. “This piece of electrical equipment gets X-rayed annually, and wasn’t due again until October. Everyone tries to do everything right, so it was a relief to hear that it wasn’t human error,” he said. Some of the displaced employees will return to work at a nearby mill that the company has leased. “The plan is to lease a small mill and hopefully that will start up in the second or third week of September,” Nagy said. Cleanup will begin next week and the company is currently pursuing cleanup and rebuilding quotes. In the second incident, which happened Aug. 23, two homes at the corner of 113th Avenue and 223rd Street were levelled and left seven people homeless. An investigation into the cause of that fire was concluded by the fire department, however the cause is still under investigation by police. “Part of the investigation has been turned over to the RCMP. But just because the RCMP are involved doesn’t necessarily mean there was any criminal activity – it

A number of pets were lost in the house fires, and some cats have not yet been located, explained Exner. “Word on the street is that we recovered animals, but we did not.” “Ridge Meadows RCMP continue to work closely with the Maple Ridge fire department to determine the origin of the fire that destroyed the two homes, and if this was a criminal act or not,” said Ridge Meadows RCMP Supt. Dave Walsh. “If it is found to be a deliberately set fire, police will continue to seek out the person, or persons responsible,” he added. Exner requested anyone with footage of the fire from prior to the fire department’s arrival, forward it to the department at

Country girl at heart plays music by ear

A teen from Maple Ridge became a YouTube sensation by posting covers of her favourite songs. by Sylver McLaren

It all started about 14 months ago when Rachel Gibson posted a cover of Nicki Minaj’s Super Bass on YouTube. The Maple Ridge singer, songwriter, and musician played the guitar while singing her unique rendition of Minaj’s hit song. Ever since then she has become somewhat of a YouTube sensation. Rachel, who is also known as Ray, has since posted 36 covers and six original songs. She taught herself how to play the piano and guitar. Ray’s mom, Maureen Chapman said she can play any instrument by ear. “She has a strong creative intelligence. It’s a special gift she’s got,” said Chapman. “Rachel has also been taking voice lessons for the last four months with Spencer Welch Vocals,” Chapman added. Most of her cover songs on YouTube are by country music idols like Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and Carrie Underwood, but there are a few others in the mix of musicians like Adele, Fun, and Katy Perry. “I would post them on YouTube and people started showing them to their friends, and then they would request songs, and that is how it all started,” Ray explained. In February Brett Stair of Stairway Entertainment spotted her on the Internet. “When I found Ray on YouTube I was so impressed with her natural ability as a singer and a musician. She is fantastic on the piano and guitar and plays both by ear,” he said. “Her tone of voice is so amazing and one that I couldn’t stop listening to,” admitted Stair. She is a hard worker and driven to succeed as an artist, Stair said. Ray has travelled to Los Angeles twice to write songs and meet with her management team. While there, she co-wrote and recorded 13 original songs.

YouTube sensation Ray Gibson is an up-and-coming country singer and songwriter from Maple Ridge. While in L.A., and on Ray’s 18th birthday a few months ago, Underwood, a former American Idol winner, posted Ray’s cover of Underwood’s song Good Girl. “That was the best birthday present I ever got,” she said. Although Ray was already growing a large YouTube following, Underwood’s acknowledgement of the cover gave Ray a huge boost in views. In fact, the view count for Good Girl is

Hold My Beer. “After the first verse and chorus, there was an instrumental break and [Aaron] began talking about the local talent that we have, then asked if he could bring out a friend – and then I walked up the stairs and onto the stage,” Ray explained. “It’s a song that you just have fun with. So I was goofing around having a blast on stage with him,” she said about singing one of Pritchett’s most popular songs. Ray said she was nervous because it was her first time on stage, “but I was also really excited. Once I started singing, all the nerves were gone and I just had the time of my life,” she recalled. “The crowd was very loud and they were singing along and they made me feel really comfortable. It was definitely the best night of my life!” “From the very first moment I heard Ray sing, I knew that she was going to be a big star,” said Prichett. Ray covered one of his songs – Coming Clean – on YouTube and then sent the link to his Twitter account. “When I clicked on the link I was in amazement with her incredible voice,” Prichett said, who added that they have become “good friends in music.” “Ray is not only going to be a big star because she can sing unbelievably, writes amazing tunes, has a great team working along side of her, but because she has a stage presence that I haven’t seen in many people. It’s called charisma and she is loaded with it,” Prichett said. Her manager also thinks she has a bright future in music. “It takes a lot of talent and hard work to make it in this business. Ray has both the natural talent and the work ethic to take her to the top. I have never been around someone that loves music quite as much as Ray,” Stair said. And if the music industry doesn’t work out for Ray, she can always fall back on her original plan. “I wanted to be a cop. My dad works for Vancouver Police Department. Since I was little I wanted to be a police officer, so if this doesn’t work out, I’m going to go do that,” she said. Follow Ray on Facebook and Twitter: @ raygibsonmusic.

Fair fares fair for all For most of its clientele, TransLink has some good news today… for others, not so good. Starting today, TransLink is cracking down on fare evaders – trying to get a free ride on the transit system will be tougher. The law has been changed, with new penalties for people caught in a farepaid zone without a valid proof of payment. The South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority Act now includes a fare collection bylaw that replaces the current provincial statute, allowing TransLink to take over responsibility for issuing fare infraction tickets, collecting fines, and implementing dispute and appeal processes. The legislation also enables Transit Security, along with Transit Police, to issue TransLink fare infraction tickets. “Fare evasion is theft and it impacts everyone,” said TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis. We agree. Jarvis added, “The provincial government has given us an important new tool to safeguard a significant source of revenue.” And we hope we’ll be able to agree with him on that, too, after we’ve seen how well TransLink uses its “important new tool.” Most transit travellers pay their fares, and may not ever be aware that there has been a change – except if Transit Security and the Transit Police do their jobs as intended, they may notice a few fellow travellers being accosted and ticketed for their transgressions. The new bylaw penalties include a $173 fine for not having a valid proof of payment in a fare paid zone. An unpaid fine escalates to $213 after 180 days and $273 after one year. Outstanding fines may be referred to a collection agency. It’s not penalty money that we hope will improve TransLink’s bottom line, but a fair increase in fare revenues. – B.G.

Information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act is disturbing. Canadian Press has reported that the Canadian government has instructed that, “Under exceptional circumstances the RCMP or border agency may need to share the most complete information in its possession, including information foreign agencies likely obtained through torture.” It means that the Canadian government will accept as evidence information gained through torture. This is in contravention of the Charter of Human Rights, and the Convention

on Torture. Article 6 of the Convention on Torture declares: “Torture cannot be justified as a means to protect public safety or prevent emergencies.” The Convention further states, “Parties must also ban the use of evidence produced by torture in their courts (Article 15), and are barred from deporting, extraditing, or refouling people where there are substantial grounds for believing they will be tortured (Article 3).” In 1945 the Canadian government, through Lester B.

Suit against ICBC, not executives I am writing this morning regarding your article, [Suit filed against ICBC executives, Aug. 30, TIMES]. Firstly, it contains a major inaccuracy. There is not one single ICBC executive named in this customer’s suit. Your use of this in the headline and references to “ICBC’s top brass” and “ICBC’s management team” are, therefore, wholly incorrect. Going further, not even one single ICBC employee is being sued. If you had done us the courtesy of contacting us regarding this story, perhaps glaring errors such as this would not have been made. In addition, your story may have contained some balanced reporting. We have a consent form customers can sign that allows us to comment directly on their claim with the media. If this had happened, we could have told you and your readers why we determined this customer 100 per cent at-fault for this crash. As you alluded to, the customer did take his claim through our Claims Assessment Review (CAR) process. This process is overseen by an external and independent decision-maker – not

employed by ICBC – who provides an objective decision about fault. The arbiter is typically an independent adjuster, retired judge, or insurance mediator with knowledge of Motor Vehicle Act liability. The independent arbiter reviews the customer’s written submission, along with the ICBC file material. This independent decision is binding on ICBC. In this customer’s case, the arbiter also ruled this customer to be 100 per cent responsible for the accident.

Adam Grossman, ICBC Media Relations

[Editor’s note: In fact, nine individuals are named in Vladimir Kolosov’s “Notice of Civil Claim,” claiming that “each of them with different level of responsibility breached their duties…” However, Mr. Grossman is correct in noting that those individuals are not “being sued,” as the claim is filed specifically against “I.C.B.C., 151 West Esplanade, North Vancouver, BC, V7M 3H9.” We thank Mr. Grossman for the opportunity to set the record straight.] For more letters to the editor visit...

Those at the bottom of the totem pole have to pay to see the Olympics. That is just one more sleazy way for us peasants to pay ever more taxes. Of course this rubbish does have to be paid for, while the elite get a free ride. This is is not new, it has been going on for years. The upper crust (speak “freeloader” here) get in for free. It can well be assumed that they will usually tend to have larger incomes, often much larger incomes than the peasants. If it isn’t enough that they get in for free, then the scandalous story broke of their not even picking up their tickets – that is really offensive. Rubbing salt in the wound, as it were. Everyone should pay whatever the price. Everyone, period. The same cost for all. Regardless of who they are, there should absolutely be no exceptions. In a democracy, everyone is supposedly equal. However, that is just a silly and a mindless myth. Anyone believing this nonsense will tend to believe just about anything. Offensive and sickening, eh?

Humphrey was the principal author of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. On Aug. 23, 1985, Canada signed the ban on torture! To accept evidence given under torture is supposedly for “our safety.” Evidence given under torture is not reliable, in any case. One probably would say anything, or give any name or accusation if it helped to escape the pain. It would give a false sense of security to rely on evidence from torture! How safe do you feel in a country where any suspect can accuse you under torture of anything to stop the barbaric treatment? Isn’t this what only happens in suppressive dictatorships? The Canadian government, with allowing evidence given under torture, is conveying the message that torture is acceptable and justifiable, and this will encourage further torture. It is barbaric, medieval, against the law, against our commitment to the UN resolutions which any decent and humane country upholds. It is wrong! Bad things do not only happen because of bad people, but also because of good people standing by to let it happen. Please do no let our country go down the slippery slope of condoning torture in whatever form or shape.

Masse believes social problems on rise Walkers support Councillor doesn’t want services that enable people to stay in a Parkinson patients cycle of poverty and crime. by Maria Rantanen

Maple Ridge Councillor Bob Masse thinks that crime and social problems are increasing in downtown Maple Ridge. At Monday’s council workshop, Masse initiated a discussion about the issue, as he believes there’s been an increase in visible crime, drug dealing, and prostitution, and he wants services that help lift people out of the cycle of poverty, addiction, and mental illness. The social problems are “more concentrated” in the downtown area, and they have an impact on

Passionate student admits nerves, excitement …continued from page A1

The archeological work was important for the Beninese, because it gave them pride in their past, not having to rely on colonial interpretations of their history. Darcus’s interest has moved from western Africa to the eastern side of the continent, and her work will focus on stones used to grind flour in Ethiopia. The grinding stones were used for millennia to prepare the Ethiopians’ staple food. In the past few years, they have been replaced by electric mills. On the one hand, the switch has freed up about six hours a day for women who can now do chores that children did before. And the children can go to school.

On the other hand, it has changed life for Ethiopians, introducing a cash economy, with changed relationships among cooperative communities. “I’m getting all passionate and excited,” Darcus said, interrupting her own narrative about the Ethiopian grinding stones. Her research will fall under the category of ethnoarcheology: she’ll be interviewing people now to find commonalities in the past. Darcus said she is both nervous and excited about the path she’s taking, but she wants to do what she is truly passionate about. Noting that her father passed away at age 67, Darcus said, “If my life is going to be short, it better be good and rewarding.”



Two support groups meet regularly in Maple Ridge to give information about a debilitating illness.

by Maria Rantanen

This Saturday, the community will host a Parkinson SuperWalk – the second time it is being held locally. Last year’s walk raised $3,000 but this year, online donations are already ahead of that, said Edith Elliott, facilitator of Parkinson’s support groups. Walks take place across Canada in September. The Pitt Meadows walk will be on Sept. 8, on SuperWalk weekend. Money from the SuperWalk goes to research, education, and programs organized by the Parkinson society. The Parkinson Society of B.C. facilitates support groups in Maple Ridge. There are two groups, one for people who have Parkinson’s disease and their families, and the other for caregivers. The groups are small but strong, Elliott said, and provide peer counselling, discussions about symptoms, medication, and treatments, and lots of information from the Parkinson Society. The meetings are “absolutely confidential,” Elliott said. “What happens at Parkinson meetings stays at Parkinson meetings.” The meetings attract people who are at varying stages of their “journey” with Parkinson’s, Elliott said, from the newly diagnosed to people who have had the disease for decades. The walk takes place in Pitt Meadows Spirit Square (behind City hall on Harris Road) and starts at 11 a.m. Registration opens at 10:30 a.m. More than 11,000 people in B.C. are affected by Parkinson’s disease – this number is 100,000 in Canada.

It’s time to strap a leash on the dog and walk in support of all animals, big and small. It’s a chance to make a life-saving difference for all two- and four-legged friends. The 2012 BC SPCA Paws for a Cause takes place at the Albion Fairgrounds on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 11 a.m. (registration at 10 a.m.) “We are going to have live music, doggy games, 50/50 draw and raffle. It’ll be lots of fun,” said Mark Vosper, manager of the Maple Ridge SPCA shelter. “It is difficult to predict how many people will show up. If the weather is good we hope to see 80 to 100,” he added. “We need to make it a success so we can help more animals in our community,” Vosper explained. Online pre-registration closes at the end of day on Sept. 6. Onsite registration will be available the day of the event but only preregistered participants will be able to collect online donations before, during, and after the walk. This year the BC SPCA hopes to raise $1 million for animals in need. “The Scotiabank and BC SPCA

Nearly 100 dogs and their owners participated in the annual BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk at the Albion Fairgrounds in Maple Ridge last year. Paws for a Cause walk is a fun way to get involved and make a huge impact in the lives of animals in need,” said Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events at the BC SPCA. “Our walks include food, fabulous prizes and lots of fun activities for our two and four-legged participants. The best part is that the funds raised help save the lives of thousands of abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals in

B.C.,” continued Rooney. BC SPCA is a non-for-profit organization that relies on community support to carry out cruelty investigations, sheltering, and a wide range of services for more than 32,000 animals each year. Those interested in getting involved in the Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause can join as an individual, as a group, or as a corporate team. The BC SPCA has set up a website at, with sponsorship opportunities, fundraising ideas, pledge kits, posters, merchandise, and ways to volunteer.

Questions and answers

Go crazy on cherry stumps to be rid of them for good Dear Anne,

How can I tame my boulevard? This has five wild cherry stumps that are still budding, and are homes for ants and their friends. They are surrounded by thick ivy and blackberry plants. Do you have any suggestions how I can eradicate all this?


Dear Carlyne,

Gardening by Anne Marrison

Carlyne Clark, Vancouver

Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via

lackberry plants and ivy are both resistant to herbicides. That’s why your first move should be cutting back your blackberries and ivy with a lopper. This clears the way for stump removal. After that, you need to decide whether you can cut the stumps down to ground level yourself. If you can’t you should go to a machine rental place and rent a stump grinder. This isn’t cheap, and stump grinding is very hard work and is best done by an experienced operator. After that, string trimming and regular mowing should keep everything under control.

Hydrangea advice needed

Dear Anne,

I have two large hydrangea bushes that look healthy. But in the last two years they have become spindly looking. The blossoms still look great but I feel I’m not pruning them correctly. I’d like them to stay about the same size and look lush. Also I’ve been told I can affect the colour of the blooms by adding something to the soil. Is it fertilizer, or bone meal, or something else?

Dear Christina,


’m assuming your hydrangeas are the mophead type with big, dome flowers. It’s best to leave as many dead flower-heads as possible on the plant over the winter. These will help protect the buds below from frost. Spring is the time to prune hydrangeas. Every year it’s best to cut the most spindly shoots down to the ground and also one or two of the oldest, scraggliest

stems. This will encourage vigorous new stems to shoot. The remaining branches that flowered last year can be cut back to fat buds. These will produce flower heads in late summer. If you ever have to deal with a really ugly, lanky hydrangea you can always cut the whole lot down to ground level. Provided it’s not diseased, it will re-shoot. Hydrangeas are very strong shrubs.

It’s acidity that supports the blue in hydrangea flowers and alkalinity that supports pink ones. Because our soils in B.C. are quite acidic, hydrangeas that are blue when you buy them tend to stay blue as long as you don’t fertilize them with something alkaline, like lime, bone-meal, or mushroom manure. If you do, then pink tones will creep into your blue-flowers which morph into a muddy mauve. If you buy a pink-flowered hydrangea and want to turn it blue, you’ll need to add something acidic like aluminum sulphate. To get hydrangea colour to persist in earth that’s naturally more acidic or more alkaline than the soil it originally grew in, I’m sure you’d need to administer the acidic or alkaline substance several times a year. Otherwise our heavy rains would tend to leach it through the soil.

Hand-hooked rugs hung at art gallery A fibre artist will have her nature-inspired work on display at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery. by Ronda Payne and Troy Landreville

The early years of handhooked rugs were for practicality. They were affordable ways to keep the floor and the body warm. Vancouver-based artist Michelle Sirois-Silver thinks those pioneers of the craft would laugh to know that their early work may be considered art. Certainly Sirois-Silver’s rugs are. Her latest body of work will be on display at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery starting when the gallery’s doors re-open on Saturday, Sept. 8. The exhibition is of handhooked rugs and examples of surface design by Sirois-Silver, a hand-hooking rug artist who brings together themes of her coastal roots and the constant passage of time, entitled Love, Decay, Repair. Specifically, she drew on inspiration from the botanical world and the hosta plant in its various stages of decomposition. Unlike the plant, however, these works on fibre hold possibilities of repair through layering, stitching, and other methods of reinforcement. “The resulting works express the vulnerability of nature, the complexity of its systems of selfrepair, and the beauty to behold

Curator Barbara Duncan (above) recently arranged new lattice work pottery from Maria Polatas. Michelle SiroisSilver’s Imagined Dialogue (right) is one rug that will be on display at the art gallery starting Sept. 8. in every stage of its life cycle,” said gallery curator Barbara Duncan. Sirois-Silver said Love, Decay, Repair reflects her philosophy about art and craft and the seamless integration of traditional and contemporary design, techniques, practice and attitudes. “Applying and integrating unexpected materials and tech-

niques into hand-hooked work has always intrigued me,” SiroisSilver said. In the “decay” pieces the surface of the leaf begins to disintegrate, taking on a vulnerable quality, the artist explained. The colours are dull and muted. Tears and cracks begin to appear on the surface and new materials and layered techniques

such as hand stitching, needle felt and machine stitching are used to depict aspects of decay and repair. Defined as a fibre artist, SiroisSilver uses a range of materials: hand-dyed wool fabric, metal and silk ribbon, linen backing, and more. She incorporates layering, stitching, dyeing, and resist tech-

niques with the hand-hooking process to create rugs for the floor or for hanging on walls. Although she uses what is known as the “traditional” rug-hooking technique, SiroisSilver’s work frequently acknowledges her fascination with the natural world of the Pacific Northwest. Sirois-Silver teaches workshops, writes, and exhibits her work internationally, and the fact that she’s exhibited her work internationally makes the gallery personnel pleased to welcome her for an exhibition and various other events. Love, Decay, Repair opens Saturday, Sept. 8, with a free public reception from 2 to 4 p.m. A free demonstration and talk by SiroisSilver on the rug-hooking technique used for her work in the exhibition will be on Sept. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. Another free presentation is planned for Sept. 29 from 2 to 3 p.m. when the artist will show slides and discuss the creative process behind her latest body of work. Regular gallery hours to see the botanically inspired rugs are Tuesdays through Saturdays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sirois-Silver’s exhibit runs until Oct. 13.

Minor hockey

Barracudas’ brass hope to grow girls game Locally, organizers are introducing the game to prospective players. by Troy Landreville

The Meadow Ridge Barracudas don’t want to be the small fry on the local minor hockey scene. This is why the Meadow Ridge Female Minor Hockey Association is actively recruiting new players in its effort to grow the girls game. Association vice-president and registrar Laurie Suchodolski has a 10-yearold daughter, Carmen, who has played ice hockey since she was seven years old. Carmen is among the approximately 100 players ranging in age from five to 17 registered with the MRFMHA, which formed in 1997. Compare that to the more than 1,000 players registered with the Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association, which includes both boys and girls, and the local club is looking for more Barracudas to join its fold. “We need, especially, the younger ones, to build our numbers from the bottom up,” Laurie said. “In female [minor hockey], that’s the way to go.” MRFMHA is accepting registration for the tyke (ages 5-6) novice (7-8), atom (9-10), peewee (1112), bantam (13-14) and midget (15-17) divisions. The association’s tyke team currently has seven players. This is the MRFMHA’s

The playing season starts in September and ends in early to mid-March, with the local teams competing against other female associations throughout the Lower Mainland. Some divisions offer both recreational and rep levels of play. Laurie is actively involved with the association, after being introduced to it by another mom whose daughter played female hockey. “I didn’t know a female association existed,” she recalled. Her daughter joined the sport after being persuaded by her uncle Clayton. “Her uncle, my brother, has been playing hockey

“We have girls that bring My Little Ponies into the dressing room,” she said, “and we have girls who are tomboys like my daughter. Just personality-wise, we have everybody. But what it comes down to is, everybody becomes friends and they stay.” The focus is on friendships and building a love for the game, Laurie said. Female minor hockey is governed by the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association, BC Hockey, and ultimately, Hockey Canada. “Female hockey is legitimately hockey, just as the integrated side is,” Laurie said. “We have Olympic teams, we have university scholarships, we have ‘AAA’ midget – all female. It’s all there.” Male hockey heroes such as Henrik Sedin, Sidney Crosby, and Tyler Seguin have counterparts on the female side. For example, Carmen has been lucky enough to meet three-time Olympic gold medalist Hayley Wickenheiser, a member of several world championship teams representing Canada. For parents who run into financial roadblocks, KidSport has a local branch that helps to relieve some of the costs for eligible families, and the MRFMHA is offering a used equipment program to lighten the impact of purchasing hockey gear.
