Pitt Meadows City Mayor Deb Walters is impressed with the number of youth who are taking part in Remembrance Day ceremonies, including Spark Talia Taylor, five, and her nine-week-old Australian puppy Kyber. Sherry Boudreau (above) was also among those from Pitt Meadows who attended the service, laying a poppy in honour of two special friends who were in the U.S. military.

Grandpa’s stories recounted Those who gathered in Memorial Peace Park Sunday came to celebrate veterans.


by Sylver McLaren

Eyes welled up as they laid a wreath for their dad and grandpa at the cenotaph in Memorial Peace Park on Remembrance Day. He was their hero. His name was L.W. (Bill) Soroke. “He’s was a veteran. We are all so very proud of him,” said daughter-in-law Darlene Soroke. “He was with the war on DDay, as a tank driver, and ended up being a prisoner of war after it all. He was with a tank of five. They were captured or taken down and Pop was the only one who made it,” she said. Bill Soroke, who was part of the 1st Hussars lived another 60 years, and passed away seven years ago. The 1st Hussars landed in Normandy on June 6, 1944, and fought in northwest Europe until the end of the war. “We miss him so much. We miss his stories,” Darlene said, dabbing the tears from her eyes. “He didn’t glorify it, but he shared a lot. We are just very proud of him. He did a lot for the cause,” she added. Grandson Joel Soroke said it’s a family tradition to come to the Remembrance Day ceremony. “We come to remember Grandpa,” Joel said. Cody Soroke, another grandson, said it means a lot to him to attend Remembrance Day ceremonies. “It means a lot for me to come here every year and support Grandpa, my hero,” said Cody, his voice cracking with emotion. “We always come as a family and then gather after and talk about Pop and remember Pop. His stories were just amazing. He was a survivor.” One story he recounted was about blowing up a group of Germans on D-Day who were stationed atop a wine cellar. “They emptied all their gas tanks and filled them all up with French wine. That was just one

of the many stories he told,” Darlene said. Jaromey Poole was wearing a sign on her back to recognize her grandfather, Robert William Poole, an officer of the Royal British Navy who served aboard the HMS Windsor in the Second World War. Her grandpa died about 20 years ago, but Poole is still moved to tears when talking about him. “I believe that he believed he was doing exactly what he needed to do to protect the people he loved,” said Poole. Also moved by the ceremony was Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin. “It was awesome. The number of people who attend keeps growing every year. I remember 25 or 30 years ago, we’d bring the kids up here and there would be a few hundred people here... there seems to be a heightened awareness... you gotta come early to get a good spot,” he said, estimating there was about 3,000 to 4,000 people in attendance. Margaret Kury, the emcee for the Remembrance Day ceremony in Maple Ridge kept every thing running smoothly, from start to finish. “I think it went very well. I think things went a lot more smoother, and I think the weather had a lot to do with it. It’s just marvellous to see so many people out, it’s heartwarming,” she said.

A wanted man was arrested by police on Thursday night.

Always the lowest prices in town!

by Sylver McLaren

Police arrested a 28-year-old man Thursday night, who they’d been hunting for a week. Clayton Quigley was wanted for assaulting an officer after he was found inside a business on River Road on the morning of Thursday, Nov. 1. Quigley managed to get away from police that morning, and evaded arrest until Thursday when he was caught by RCMP at a Supt. Dave Walsh Dewdney Trunk Ridge Meadows RCMP Road residence, just before 9 p.m. “After the events on Nov. 1, Mr. Quigley became a priority for our detachment,” said Ridge Meadows Supt. Dave Walsh. “His actions that day caused the lockdown of an elementary school, and concerned our entire community,” he said. “I would like to personally thank the diligence of all our citizens, and our RCMP members and civilian employees who worked together to get Mr. Quigley into custody and make our community safer,” Walsh added, noting Quigley was set to appear in court on Nov. 9.

Gaming centre a year off

A new gambling facility will include bingo and slot machines but will not have live tables. by Maria Rantanen

Construction forms are in the ground and aggregate covers the site of a new gaming centre set to open in Maple Ridge in about a year. On Friday afternoon, Great Canadian Gaming Corp.’s executives joined Maple Ridge dignitaries and others from the community to officially break ground for the Maple Ridge Community Gaming Centre. Maple Ridge’s economic develop-

ment officer Sandy Blue said the centre will be a “showpiece” in the District and, as a destination, will attract people to the community. The corporation is extending 227th Street so that it will connect Haney Bypass to Lougheed Highway. The 28,000-square-foot gaming centre will include slot machines and bingo seats, but no live tables. Howard Blank, vice-president of Great Canadian Gaming Corp., said the new centre will be “the rightsized product” for Maple Ridge, comparable to their Chilliwack facility. Blank said he’s been meeting with local community groups and hopes the gaming centre becomes “part of the fabric of the community.”

Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows Times The second Honouring Our Veterans poetry contest concluded with a reading in The ACT lobby on Sunday.

Joe Robinsmith didn’t envy the judges their job in selecting the best written tributes to veterans. It might have been the Maple Ridge writer’s brainchild to create an annual Remembrance Day poetry contest, then invite submissions from throughout the Lower Mainland. But he was grateful not to have to be a judge, critiquing the 80-plus poems that were submitted in the second annual Honouring Our Veterans poetry contest held in conjunction with The TIMES. “The judges had a very hard time in choosing the finalists this year,” Robinsmith said, prior to a special poetry reading held at The ACT on Remembrance Day afternoon. After the Remembrance ceremonies

in Maple Ridge’s Memorial Peace Park, about 50 patriots of various ages gathered in the lobby of The ACT to read and/or listen to some of the contestants’ entries, and to learn who won. “The calibre of poetry for the most part was outstanding,” Robinsmith said. The competition was divided into three age categories. First prize in the children (five to 12 years old) category came from Webster’s Corners Elementary student Emily Knudsen, who brought judges to tears with her prose . “The poem by Emily Knudsen… it made the point and made every person who read it cry. Emotion, not length is a much more powerful tool,” said Robinsmith. There was only one teen entry, earning Elizabeth Szalajko a first-place prize. And in the adult division (19 years and older) Susan McLeod of New Westminster took first. All the poems will be published on The TIMES website in the coming week, at

People pipe up Kinder Morgan’s pipeline was discussed at a local meeting. by Maria Rantanen

Fall Certificate Programs

The effects of a spill from the Kinder Morgan pipeline across the river from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows could affects large watersheds and the Fraser River. This was the message at the Maple Ridge Pipeline Town Hall Meeting last Wednesday evening at Golden Ears United Church where the expansion plans of the pipeline were discussed. The meeting was put on by the Wilderness Committee, TankerFreeBC, Fraser Valley Pipeline Watch, Katzie First Nation, and Golden Ears United Church with more than 100 people in attendance. “When something is affecting our land, I’m going to do something about it,” said Ruben George, the chief of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation who was part of the panel. George said that like the 1960s and 1970s movements, people have to stand up for what they believe. But now, instead of saving other people, humans are saving themselves. The Kinder Morgan pipeline, named the Trans Mountain Pipeline, currently moves 300,000 barrels of oil per day from Edmonton to Kamloops, Burnaby, and Washington State. The expanded pipeline would be able to move 750,000 barrels per day. The company’s goal is to apply to the National

The panel at a town hall meeting about a pipeline expansion included local activist Jack Emberly. Energy Board in late 2013, and if approved, start operations in 2017. Michael Hale, who lives in Yarrow, spoke on behalf of Pipe Up, said he was concerned about extraction of tarsands and the risk involved. But, he added, he’s also concerned about the economics of the environment, saying that the environment is the “container… where everything survives and fails.” Pitt Meadows Mayor Deb Walters said she was at the meeting on a personal fact-finding mission, saying she learned a lot about the project at the meeting. “What I enjoyed was getting the facts,” she said. “I wanted to learn more.” Pitt Meadows council hasn’t taken a stand on the issue, but they haven’t been approached on the issue either, Walters said. Walters sits on the Metro Vancouver parks and environment committee and there has been discussion about the pipeline there, but “nothing firm” has come of it.

Our View

Pay bills first, before a party Families are a good thing. No one will dispute that. And having a special day to celebrate the importance of families is a pretty good thing, too. And while many will agree that making that day a full-fledged day off work helps to emphasize the family’s importance in our way of life, lots of folks can offer some pretty effective rationale that making it a statutory holiday was unnecessary. Many a persuasive case has been made that B.C.’s new Family Day – which will make its inaugural appearance on the second Monday in February 2013 – has more political justification than societal. The suggestion is that Family Day is just one more straw being grasped by a fading BC Liberal government led by a fading Premier Christy Clark. Clark, of course, says she is proud to have added an extra day to the list of B.C. holidays. She has made it clear, time and again, that she stands solidly on a “families first” agenda, so the introduction of a Family Day holiday is really just an affirmation of the basic beliefs that helped place her behind the premier’s desk. Some, however, simply see it – along with her apparent pride – as proof that she’s politicizing families to try and rebuild some support for her party and for herself. Clark’s decision to throw a bucket of money at Family Day isn’t strengthening her case, either. She is in charge of a province that is seriously strapped for cash – the government’s civil servants and those who rely on the services they provide are constantly reminded of it. A million and a half bucks does seem a great deal to spend on a party when you’re constantly complaining that you don’t have enough money to pay your regular bills. – B.G.

Odd Thoughts


Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows Times

Animal welfare

Exotic animals not so funny

Dear Editor, I found Maria Rantanen’s column on bylaws entertaining and funny, but I got the sense that she thought it was funny that they would include a lot of the animals they did [Darn! Can’t buy me an otter!, Oct. 30 Haney Inkslinger, TIMES]. I don’t think she realizes just how many of those animals people will try to keep as pets. Most of the animals listed are already covered by the Controlled Alien Species legislation out of the B.C. Ministry of the Environment. Species native to B.C. (bears, otters, etc.) are covered by different legislation. Bylaws merely provide more teeth for local bylaws officers. Most of the people who have these kinds of animals take wonderful care of them. You will never know that your neighbour has several 15-foot snakes in his basement, because he takes great care of them. Others, however, get these animals for the wrong reasons. For instance, I have had a few clients in the past who have gotten caimans (a type of crocodile) solely to show how manly they are.

I have worked with 10-foot alligators and I collect Star Wars action figures; manliness has nothing to do with it. As a veterinarian who works on exotics, you never know what will come through the door. I have clients with giant pythons, others with pet skunks or raccoons. In general, I support the restrictions placed on owning these types of animals, though I prefer a licensing situation over allout bans. I also think the laws can be a little bit two broad, with some animals being banned that are frankly quite harmless. Dewdney Animal Hospital has one of the few rescue permits for controlled alien species, resulting in the ministry occasionally leaving a crocodile or snake on my doorstep. Sadly, many people get these animals without fully understanding what is involved, eventually giving them up or abandoning them. I know you find it funny that these animals might be banned (a beluga in a backyard pool), but you would be amazed at what is out there. Dr. Adrian Walton, Dewdney Animal Hospital

HURRY! OFFER ENDS Anti-bullying comment surprising DECEMBER 27th, 2012

Dear Editor, I read “Bullies murdering girl’s memories” [Nov. 1 Letters, TIMES] feeling the same sentiments as the writer, all the way to the end, and then couldn’t help

myself as I let out a cry of incredulous surprise to see who wrote these all-too-true sentiments. I guess that’s really why bullying will never end, because bullies don’t see


Calendar coverage distastful

Dear Editor, I opened up my newspaper and was disturbed by the pictures shown of the calender to raise money for prostate cancer [Fake ’stache raises coin for prostate cancer, Nov. 6, TIMES]. It is not appropriate to show these kinds of pictures in a family newspaper that is brought into our homes. I have three sons I am raising to not view women as objects of desire, but as ones to treasure and to treat in a honorable way. It was not necessary to show so many pictures of these women mostly undressed. One of the pictures might have been okay, but the majority were in poor taste. You may call it sassy, but it is still presented in a sexual manner that is distasteful to me as a woman. Please refrain from using this kind of promotion to help charities. Thankfully, I was able to tear the page out before the rest of my family was able to flip through the pages. Cynthia Davison, Maple Ridge

themselves as such. Imagine the lack of awareness of letter-writer Linda Meyer to have experienced years of reading letters from the citizens of Maple Ridge, expressing their dismay that she has asserted her will over that of the local population and taken away the rights of the multitude to experience the local leisure centre in a way that the majority would wish. She probably feels like a victim herself, but has forced herself and her “wants” on everyone else, and we can all just suck it up. If she really wants to make a statement against bullying, she might like to write a letter of apology to Maple Ridge residents, promise to change, and then follow through by keeping her nudity to a more private venue. Arlyene Moberg, Maple Ridge

Benefits can’t be had without cost

Dear Editor, I’m happy to see that a former school trustee is able to keep his name and now his photo in the paper, this time with a petition about a zero per cent property tax increase for 2013 [Petition targets City taxes, Oct. 23, TIMES].

Who couldn’t have gotten 1,300 signatures on a zero increase for property taxes? No one wants to pay more taxes, but services benefit all: a traffic light, a street light, road paved, ditches cleaned, Christmas lights, library, museum, Harris Road improvements…

Odd Thoughts

Sometimes hell is necessary

Dear Editor, Yes, war is hell, and yes, anyone with “half a brain” does not “glorify war” [Some things to think about, Nov. 6 Odd Thoughts, TIMES]. But Remembrance Day is to honour the men and women who served and died for our freedom. Diplomacy should be exhausted before any war is contemplated. Hitler saw diplomacy as weakness. He signed peace treaties and then broke them. He lied over and over again, all the while taking over countries. Through the blood, sweat, and tears of soldiers he was stopped, but not before murdering millions of innocent civilians. Yes, war is hell, but sometimes necessary. Cherryl Katnich, Maple Ridge

I remember asking for two proper pedestrian-controlled traffic lights at two crosswalks, one at Harris and the museum and at City Hall. I was told each light costs $60,000. Each. Ouch! When Mr. M. lobbied council through the newspapers about speeding cars, he was awarded “traffic calming” on his street. I wonder what that cost us taxpayers? Mr. M. knows full well controlling costs is not as easy as he makes out. I wonder what his next move will be to keep himself in the public eye?

A bilingual trio will bring their colourful suits and quirky, upbeat tunes to The ACT this week. The Lost Fingers, whose members perform in both French and English, are at The ACT on Thursday, Nov. 15, back for the second time. The trio, B.C.’s Byron Mikaloff on guitar, Christian Roberge also on guitar, and Alex Morissette, a jazz bassist, met at the Quebec Conservatory of Music. The band’s name is inspired by gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt who lost the use of two fingers following a fire and whose unique style of gypsy jazz influences the band. In terms of 2008 domestic sales by Canadian artists, their debut album, Lost in the 80s, was second only to Nickelback’s Dark Horse. Within 12 weeks of its release it earned platinum certification for more than 100,000 sales in Quebec alone. With two Juno Award nominations in 2009, soldout shows at the Cultural Oympiad and at The ACT in 2010, audiences can enjoy songs from their previous albums and their recently released fourth album La Marquise. Their accomplishments are plenty and have been achieved all within six short years of their meeting. The concert is presented by the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Arts Council, a not-for-profit society dedicated to building vibrant arts and culture in the region and providing excellence in artistic presentations, customer and member service. The Lost Fingers will be at The ACT on Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for students, and are on sale at The ACT ticket centre. They’re also available by phone at 604-476-2787 or online at The ACT is located at 11944 Haney Pl.

Miss World

Ridge contestant takes stand against bullying A 17-year-old Miss World Canada contestant hopes to bring her antibullying message to children across Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. by Troy Landreville

Nicole Johnston is using her entry into Miss World Canada this coming May as a platform to convey her anti-bullying message to kids in her community, and to help a children’s charity along the way. “I like to help people and I want to make a difference,” Johnston said. “I’d like to one day go into schools and talk about bullying. If we start at a younger age to talk to kids and teach them right from wrong we can show them that words really do hurt. As you get into high school the words get a lot worse.” The 17-year-old Pitt Meadows resident has quite a back story. She graduated a year early from Thomas Haney Secondary and is currently working full time and Troy Landreville/TIMES teaching dance part time. A dancer since she was three, Johnston Miss World Canada contestant Nicole Johnston wants to bring her anti-bullying message to local schoolchildren. practises three days a week at Langley’s West Coast Contortion and Maple Ridge’s Among the organizations she’s helped In her early years at school she was Peggy Peat School of through the years: BC bullied and the problem spilled into high Dance to hone her skills.

To succeed, Johnson said, you need confidence, something she admits she was lacking. Johnston says she found her voice through pageants. “In the summer I did a pageant for Miss BC,” Johnston related. “I didn’t place, but what I got out of the three days made me feel like I won. The confidence, the public speaking, the friends [I made], truly made me feel blessed.” She was contacted a few weeks later to enter the Miss Earth Canada contest in Montreal but declined because of the expense of the flight, fees, and hotel cost. “Then I got accepted to do Miss World Canada,” Johnston said. She filled out an online application to enter and a couple of weeks later, fielded a phone call. “They asked me a few questions, and they said if I get in, they’d send me an email,” Johnston said. About two weeks later, the email came, informing her that she was accepted. Johnston will be in Vancouver for nine days, joined by girls from all over Canada. She said the contestants will benefit from life-skills coaching and training. She will be performing contortion at the May 9 competition at the River Rock Casino Show Theatre. Johnston stresses that this upcoming pageant is not a beauty contest. “As a delegate we raise money for the charity of choice,” she said. “The charity is Variety, the Children’s Charity.” She added, “The pageants you see on TV, it’s not like that. All the girls are so down to earth and so caring, and they do a really good job of weeding out the true ones from the fake ones.” To raise funds for Variety, Johnston organized a dinner and dance that was held this past Saturday at the Kinsmen Centre in Port Coquitlam. Johnston is also selling poinsettias, with proceeds going to the cause.


Local shoeboxes brighten lives of underprivileged kids

Ridge Meadows Operation Christmas Child is collecting items to give to needy children living in Central and South America.

Ridge Meadows chapter of Operation Christmas Child local coordinator Barb Gustafson is helping OCC towards its goal of collecting and distributing its hundredmillionth shoebox globally, since the program began in 1993.

by Troy Landreville

A shoebox, specifically the items put inside of it, can do wonders in lifting the spirits of a child who has next to nothing. Volunteers in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows know all about shoeboxes. In 2011 they filled 3,075 of them with small toys, hygiene items, school supplies, hard candy, personal notes, and photos. The boxes ended up in the hands of needy children in developing countries. This year’s the Ridge Meadows chapter of Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoebox collection season is off to a flying start, thanks to the West Coast Auto Group Football Club. The local soccer club donated 16 cartons full of new soccer jerseys, that will be shipped from the Calgary processing centre

Shoeboxes can brighten up the day of a child living in a developing country, maybe even his or her entire year. to kids who wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to wear such apparel. “We were flabbergasted,” OCC Ridge Meadows local coordinator Barb Gustafson said. “Their generosity was overwhelming.” There is also a need for additional new soccer balls, which will be deflated and placed into the boxes, along with pumps, to accompany the jerseys. “Perfect gifts for boys 10 to 14 years old,” Gustafson added. The packing season started in October, involving thousands of individuals, families, churches, businesses, and community

groups filling shoeboxes. Each gift-filled shoebox collected in Canada will make a long journey to the outstretched hands of a needy child in Haiti, South or Central America, or West Africa. Last year, Canadians filled 672,274 boxes. OCC shoebox gifts are also collected in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Switzerland,

Finland, Spain, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the United States. Shoebox gifts are distributed in more than 100 countries, on six continents (all but Antarctica). This year, OCC is striving towards collecting and distributing its hundred-millionth shoebox globally since the program began in 1993.

To reach that goal people in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows – and coast-to-coast – are being asked to pack shoeboxes over the next few weeks to touch the hearts of underprivileged children and improve their lives. OCC shoeboxes are available at the Dollar Giant located inside Haney Place Mall. continued on page A13…

significant financial commitment of $35,000 a year for three years will cut down on the unwanted cat population in Maple Ridge. The District committed the most

dollars ever to the BC SPCA spay and neutering program for this community, said organizer Geoff Urton. And how that money can best help curtail the local cat population was the subject of a recent daylong workshop at the Hammond Community Centre, where at least 30 people, including representatives of the SPCA, Katie’s Place, and public, came together to address the issues and develop a plan. continued on page A17…

KATIE’S PLACE CARRERA is a beautiful, big girl who was very upset to have found herself homeless at this stage of her life. She has come a long way and is accepting love and attention from the volunteers. CARRERA would do better in a home with no kids or dogs. She is hesitant to seek out attention and is often overlooked. Come meet this sweet and fall in love.

BUBBLES is a strikingly beautiful cat with a luxuriant white coat. She is regal, calm and gracious. She is also a very affectionate cat who would love to curl up on your lap. She will need regular grooming and would prefer not to live with dogs. Though she has settled at the shelter she would love a forever home she can call her own.

BRAM came to Katie’s Place from another shelter where his time had run out. He is a calm and gentle guy who enjoys attention. He has settled in with the other cats in his pen so we assume he would fit into a home with other cats. BRAM is a diabetic and would definately be considered for a permanent foster situation. He is a wonderful boy.

Haney Animal Hospital


MERISE is a shy little girl who has been completely overwhelmed with the whole shelter experience. We have watched her struggle, get sick, stop eating and for a time we worried she may simply give up. But she hasn’t! She has come out of her shell and eagerly seeks out attention. She needs a wonderful home that will make her feel safe and loved.

Community dialogue sparks two-fold plan

…continued from page A16 Discussion flowed throughout the entire day and was “incredibly productive,” said local SPCA shelter manager Mark Vosper. Identifying the problems was key, he added, which was then broken into a twofold plan. Everyone recognized that there is a large contingent of feral or homeless cats in the community, Vosper said. But, it’s still unclear how extensive the problem is.

“We need to put a plan in place to trap, neuter, and release these,” he added. Likewise, attention needs to also be focused – through an advertising and education program – at cat owners who allow their unspayed or unneutered cats to roam. By creating a subsidy program for lowincome residents and people on welfare, he’s convinced the unwanted cat population will quickly stabilize. The next step is establishing criteria and application forms.

Pitt Meadows may be a smaller community, but it’s big when it comes to producing national-level golfers. Justin Shin and Kevin Kwon, both from Pitt Meadows, made their respective Canadian teams. Shin was among those named to represent Canada as part of the 2013 national amateur golf team. Shin joins the national team for the first time after a strong collegiate season at New Mexico State University. He recorded seven top-five finishes at New Mexico State last season as a junior and was selected to compete at the NCAA Division I west regional championship, where he finished tied for 27th. The 21-year-old finished tied for 14th at the 2012 Canadian men’s amateur championship and also captured medalist honours at the Northeast amateur championship. He advanced through to the Round of 32 at the 2012 U.S. men’s amateur championship and is currently the 114th-ranked amateur in the world. In all, 11 athletes comprise Team Canada’s national amateur squad, including six on the men’s side and five on the women’s squad. The team will feature six returning team members, one player making the jump from the 2012 development squad, and four newcomers. Shin is one of three newcomers to the men’s team, Chris Hemmerich of Kitchener, Ont. and Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ont. being the others. The team is led by Garrett Rank of Elmira, Ont., the 2012 Canadian University/College champion, as well as former Nova Scotia men’s amateur and Nova Scotia junior boys champion Eric Banks of Truro, N.S., all of whom return as

Whether competing internationally, nationally, provincially, or as members of their respective collegiate teams, each of these athletes has earned the right to represent Canada in 2013.” Golf Canada also named a 22and-under development squad which features six male and five female athletes. The development

squad is designed to help facilitate the continued development of Canada’s top young players.

Kwon captures spot

Kwon returns for his second year with the development team after a summer of solid performances. His season was highlighted by a runner-up finish at the 2012 Canadian junior boys championship after firing a final round sixunder-par 66. The 17-year-old also finished in a tie for 14th at the Canadian men’s amateur championship. Earlier this year, Kwon tied for third at both the B.C. amateur championship and the B.C. junior boys championship. He also finished tied for second at the CN Future Links Pacific championship.
