The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows
School District received wel-
come news from the provincial
government Wednesday morn-
ing, as the Ministry of Education
announced it would be releasing
an additional $15 per student in
school funding for the 2010/11
school year.
The province is distributing
more than $8 million to districts
across B.C., with School District
No. 42 set to receive $210,218.
Secretary treasurer Wayne
Jefferson said the announce-
ment was positive for the district
at a time when staff and trustees
are scrambling to find savings
in order to balance next year’s
budget.
“This takes some of the pres-
sure off,” said Jefferson.
The additional funding is in-
tended, in part, to help school
districts offset the increased cost
of insuring school facilities.
Schools across the province
are self-insured by the Ministry
of Education through a provin-
cial school protection plan. Tra-
ditionally the premiums have
been paid for by the province.
However, earlier this month,
the Ministry of Education in-
formed school districts they
would be on the hook for $3 mil-
lion in property loss charges.
School District No. 42’s share was
to be $63,900, but Wednesday’s
announcement means that cost
will be covered by the province,
and will leave the district with
an extra $146,000 in funding.
“There was a lot of opposition
[to the property loss charges],”
said Jefferson. “But this was a
quick response by the Ministry.”
The extra funds mean the dis-
trict will likely finish the 2010/11
school year with a larger than
expected surplus, said Jefferson.
The district is currently grap-
pling with a $2.2 million short-
fall for the 2011/12 school year,
though.
$15 per student more
could lessen budget cuts

B.C. Hydro is proceeding with its
$800 million refit of the Ruskin Dam
in the Fraser Valley, and beginning
formal environmental review of a
new design for the Site C dam in B.C.’s
northeast.
The estimated price tag for Site C
has jumped from $6.6 billion to $7.9
billion, for the third dam on the Peace
River and likely the last big hydro dam
to be built in the province. B.C. Hydro
updated a 30-year-old design for Site
C to increase its output by 20 per cent
to supply 450,000 homes a year.
The 80-year-old Ruskin Dam is slat-

S
tudents stop and stare as
Mini Man walks through
the corridors of Thomas
Haney secondary. A
white stripe runs the
length of his face down to his pink
nose, brown fur coating the rest of
his body with the exception of a
touch of white by each hoof. Mini
Man looks straight ahead, attempt-
ing to ignore the crowds gathered
around him, the hands that reach
out to touch him as he makes his
way through the school.
Before class, he is asked to visit
the office for a meet-and-greet along
with photos that acknowledge the
celebrity status that precedes him.
Then it is off to work.
Mini Man is led to the rotunda on
the ground floor, where 21 students
have gathered for a hands-on clinic
with the Thomas Haney Equestrian
Academy.
From a long line of breeding and at
a standard 35 inches high, Mini Man,
a 14-year-old miniature horse, will
help his owner, Kay Veinotte dem-
onstrate how to drive a horse from
a buggy.
Mini Man needs information all
the time about where he is going,
Veinotte explains to the class.
“We use a lot of voice commands,
probably more than riding,” says
Veinotte, a Level 1 Equine Canada
driving coach.
“Because you can’t just pet your
horse like when you are sitting on
them. They have to learn to listen.”
To start, she gets one student to
hold a bridle over their head and a
second student to take the reins at
the back to demonstrate.
“Hold on to the reins with one or
two pounds of pressure so that the
animal feels like your are holding on
to them,” explains Veinotte. “If you
let go of the reins, they think they
are free.”
It is not about pulling the reins in
the direction you want to go, rather,
giving one or the other a half an inch
of slack. To go to the left, give a little
with the right hand and to go to the
right, the opposite.
“If they are trained well enough,
you shouldn’t have to pull on the
reins,” she says.
A whip is also used for direction,
but not by striking the horse.
“There is a lot of history with driv-
ing and the proper way of doing
things,” explains Veinotte.
For example, a whip must always
be held in the right hand – this rule
comes from England – so that pas-
sengers can get on and off on the left
side of the carriage.
The whip is laid gently on the side
of the horse’s leg to tell it to go left
or right.
After 15 minutes of practicing on
one another, the students are ready
to practice on Mini Man. One at a
time they take the reins and walk
the horse around the rotunda. At
first, the students walk the horse in
a circle. While trying to get the pres-
sure correct on the reins, they also
learn to be vocal. Words like “back,”
“whoa,” “walk” and “trot” are used
to give instructions to Mini Man.
Small cones are set on the ground in
a line for the students to zigzag him
around.
Finally, after two hours, the cart is
hooked up to Mini Man and the driv-
ing demonstration wraps up.
Veinotte is one of many guest
teachers at the academy since its
inception in 2008. Students have also
learned about equine law from David
Thompson, a lawyer with the Valley
Law Group, and about riding from
Chelan Kozak, a Canadian Eventing
Team Olympian. Gerard Laverty, a
master journeyman farrier, talked
to them about equine hoof care.
Academy director Shelley Evans,
a Level 1 Equine Canada coach with
a masters degree in education and
25 years secondary school teaching
experience, smiles as she watches
the girls gather around Mini Man for
their lesson.
“I don’t know why they are all
girls,” says Evans. “We are definitely
not a girls-only program. They just
happen to be [girls] this year. They
are just more involved in grass roots
programs.”
The academy was founded by Ev-
ans and can be completed on cam-
pus or online, no horse required.
“We did not want this to be an
elitist program for only those with
horses,” says Evans. “They just need
a passion for horses.”
She has online students from as
far away as Prince George, Vernon,
Surrey and Chilliwack. The campus
class is made up mostly of students
from the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows
school district.
“It’s nice that they get together
with friends from other schools as
part of their academic program,”
adds Evans.
The students enter the three-year
program in Grade 10 and, if success-
fully completed, will earn 16 gradua-
tion credits.
Students learn everything they
need to know about horse owner-
ship and equine studies, including,
buying a horse, parasite control, nu-
trition, tack and attire, vaccinations,
stable management, how to haul a
horse, feet and shoeing, grooming,
dentistry, bandaging and breed ge-
netics, to name a few of the topics
covered in the three-year program.
Amanda Ellis, a Westview second-
ary Grade 12 student, is finishing
up her final year. She says learning
about the physiology of horses and
how to treat different diseases and
illnesses was one of the highlights
of the program because of the prac-
ticality of the lessons. She is able to
apply what she knows now to Leo,
the 11-year-old dark brown thor-
oughbred and former racehorse,
that she rides. The classes dealing
with stable management and the dif-
ferent ways to run a barn were also
useful, she said.
Ellis eventually wants to run her
own stables.
Emma Cook-Doyle, a Grade 11 stu-
dent from St. Thomas More second-
ary in Burnaby, says that horses are
a big part of her life and loves that
she can get school credit for some-
thing she enjoys.
“It is every person’s dream.”
Doyle jumps a 13-year-old chestnut
coloured Dutch Warm Blood named
Howie. Even so, she primarily enjoys
the discipline Hunters – judged on
the horses movement and manners
– because she feels it is more natural
and likes the fact that it is judged on
style over speed.
Recently, Doyle found a practi-
cal application for lessons learned
at school. “I liked the presentation
on poultice, when you have to pack
the horses foot up so that it doesn’t
get infected. My horse stepped on a
nail two weeks ago and it came in
handy.”
Grade 10 Thomas Haney second-
ary student Sydney Hallmark, a
first-year student to the course, rides
two horses, a thoroughbred named
Striker and a paint horse named
Lacey. So far this year she has en-
joyed learning about the inside parts
of a horse, about the tendons and
ligaments.
“It helps to identify unsoundness.
To see if the horses are hurt and
where it is coming from,” she says.
At the end of the day, Mini Man
is unhitched from the cart and
marched through the school again,
back to Veinotte’s trailer. But before
walking back, Veinotte allows the
students one last pet goodbye. As
Evans watches the barrage of arms
reaching to stroke Mini Man, she
stresses the importance of the day’s
lesson. The driving clinic introduces
students to one of the oldest eques-
trian disciplines, says Evans.
“It wasn’t that long ago that in-
stead of getting a learner’s licence
for a car, they had to learn how to
ride a horse.”

Residents of Maple Ridge
need to be bear aware as the
bruins leave their dens in
search of food.
Two traps, to catch hungry
bears that started snacking
on garbage, were set in Maple
Ridge this past week, Bears
have also been spotted in
downtown Maple Ridge and
in neighbourhoods further
east.
Conservation officer Paul
McFadden said he’s been re-
ceiving several calls a week
about bears since the weath-
er warmed.
Two bears in Coquitlam and
one from Mission have al-
ready been killed this year.
“We do have numerous calls
and numerous sightings at
this point,” said McFadden.
“We only attend calls that
require action. If a bear is
aggressive or breaking some-
one’s property, then we’ll go
out.”
The Ministry of Environ-
ment’s Conservation Officer
Service received 23,240 re-
ports of bear sightings be-
tween April
1, 2010 and March 31, 2011.
During that time, conserva-
tion officers attended 2,827 in-
cidents in which bears were
acting aggressively or public
safety was an issue. As a re-
sult, 120 bears were relocat-
ed, while 675 bears had to be
destroyed.
The most effective and nat-
ural way to prevent conflicts
with bears in urban areas is
to put away attractants, such
as garbage, bird seed, com-
post and fruit.
In communities that have
bylaws in place to prevent hu-
man and wildlife encounters,
there has been a decline in
related bear-human conflict
and the number of bears that
have to be destroyed.
The nearby municipalities
of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam
and Port Moody only allow
garbage to be put at the curb
between 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. on
collection days.
Port Coquitlam and Coquit-
lam also require residents
to have “wildlife-resistant”Ð
containers or lock garbage up
in a garage or secure shed.
In Port Moody, residents
can be fined $100 if an animal
gets into their garbage, while
Coquitlam’s penalties are as
high as $500.
McFadden said Maple Ridge
should consider a similar by-
law.
The district contemplated
a bylaw three years ago, but
never got around to putting
one in place.
• To report an aggressive
bear (bluff charging, damag-
ing property), call the Minis-
try of Environment Conserva-
tion Officer at 1-877-952-7277.
Residents beware, the bears are back in town
Contributed
Residents in Albion have reported a bear, or bears, in their back lanes and eating garbage.
Bear aware:
• secure all garbage cans or carts
and keep them indoors if possible or
get a bear-resistant bin;
• don’t put garbage out to the curb
until the morning of pickup day;
• collect ripe fruit immediately from
trees and the ground;
• don’t leave pet food outside and
remove bird feeders;
• never approach, interact or feed
bears;
• sprinkle lime inside back yard
composters to deter bears.

ing bear attractants, visit www.

AUTO AIR CONDITIONING
Brrrrrrrrrr... That is the feeling you want
when you turn on your Air Conditioning
(A/C) full blast on a hot day. Are you
confused about A/C repairs? If so, you are
not alone, so sit back and I will try to explain
it to you.
Auto A/C in its simplest form is a closed, high
pressure system that contains a refrigerant
that cycles through a group of many parts
found under the hood and inside the
passenger compartment. A/C does not cool
the air. Rather, it extracts heat from the air
inside the vehicle into the refrigerant, which
is then pumped to a large radiator-looking
component (A/C condenser) located in front
of the coolant radiator. The A/C system moves
the heat from inside the car, outside to the
condenser where the air blowing through
the condenser removes the heat from the
refrigerant. From here the refrigerant is then
pumped by the A/C compressor into the car
to remove more heat. The engine coolant
system is designed to remove heat from the
radiator in exactly the same way as the A/C
system does through the condenser. Both
systems depend on each other. Therefore, if
your coolant system is not working at peak
efficiency, your A/C system can not perform
at its best either.
Most A/C system failures are due to a
refrigerant leak somewhere in the system.
This results in a low charge (amount of
refrigerant under pressure), and you lose
the amount of cold air coming out of the
vent. Auto A/C is a high pressure, closed
system. A perfect example of this type of
system is a tire. When a tire loses air (its
charge), do you keep adding air or do you
fix the leak and then add air? The A/C is
the same. To fix the system you do not top
it up, as some would have you believe, as it
will leak out and you end up with the same
problem. A proper repair procedure involves
finding and repairing the leak(s) before
recharging the system with refrigerant
(R134a). This procedure is referred to as an
A/C Performance Test.
The majority of cost involved in an
A/C repair is in repairing the leaks or a
compressor failure. So the most important
part of the job is the System Performance
Test which determines what the problem is
first, before you proceed with the repairs.
A/C repairs can be expensive if the system
is not maintained properly. Yes you need
your A/C system to be serviced at the start
of every third season (hot weather). This
ensures you won’t have huge repair bills.
Warning: there are many do-it-yourself A/C
repair kits on the market. Do not use these
kits. They’re a waste of time and money.
Most of these kits have sealer’s in them that
can cause thousands of dollars of damage to
your A/C system. The companies selling these
kits should be ashamed of themselves in my
opinion, based on 35 years of experience!

Despite earning even
fewer votes in the May
2 vote than the 2008
election, local Liberals
say they’re reloading
and will be stronger
next time.
The federal riding as-
sociation has already
started rebuilding, after
earning only five per
cent of the vote in Pitt
Meadows-Maple Ridge-
Mission. People are
mad after taking such a
drubbing, winning only
34 seats in the House of
Commons, and riding
president Brian Rice
wants to take advan-
tage of that.
“It’s a huge change.
The number of people
coming out of the wood-
work and expressing
frustration and anger
not only with the na-
tional results, but with
the local results, has
been overwhelming.”
Conservative Randy
Kamp won a fourth
election, increasing
the number of votes he
earned, while the NDP
also made gains, over
the 2008 results.
In 2008, the Liber-
als had sunk to fourth
place, behind even the
Green party, earning
only 3,394 votes.
In the May 2, 2011 elec-
tion results were even
worse, with the Liberal
party earning only 2,739
votes.
But in the election
aftermath, the associa-
tion now has about 60
members, more than it
did before the election.
It also now has a full
executive and directors
in place,16 people in all.
Nationally, the party
raised more money this
election than the past
three campaigns com-
bined, while locally, the
campaign spent about
$11,000, Rice said.
What hurt, though,
was the lack of boots on
the ground in the local
campaign.
“We only had two
groups of two people
door-knocking. We had
one person making
phone calls.”
Along with Rice,
another full-time vol-
unteer and candidate
Mandeep Bhuller, that
meant only eight peo-
ple.
“I’m proud of the cam-
paign we ran, the people
we had and the money
we had,” Rice said.
Signs were out, they
had an office, brochures
and used robo calls to
get to voters.
“I think, partly, we got
caught up in the Orange
Crush [of the NDP] as a
result.”
The riding was also
targeted by Catch 22,
which urged voters to
support NDP candidate
Craig Speirs, so as not
to split the vote.
H o we v e r ,
the riding is
strongly Con-
servative and
Rice doubts
whether bet-
ter campaign-
ing would have
made a differ-
ence.
“ P e o p l e
wanted to re-
elect Randy.
This is a Con-
servative rid-
ing right now.”
But the Liberals could
have had more vol-
unteers and money if
Bhuller was named ear-
lier, Rice admitted.
Nevertheless, the
party should have a
presence and make the
Conservative candidate
work hard to get elect-
ed.
“That doesn’t mean
we stop fighting. That
means we fight harder
and do our best.”
Latest trends in media
are also affecting voter
behaviour, Rice said.
“Fewer people are read-
ing the paper. I think
it’s information without
education.”
He also said public
opinion polls are start-
ing to influence voting
behaviour.
He’s trying to use the
anger and shame and
losing so badly to ex-
pand the party.
Rice said Kamp, now
starting his fourth term
as MP, hasn’t done
“spectacularly much for
this riding.”
“I don’t have
any expecta-
tions of Randy
Kamp, to be
honest. He’s a
backbencher
in a govern-
ment that’s
not ori ousl y
not concerned
with what
backbenchers
think.
“I think par-
liamentary secretary is
about the best we can
hope for and Stephen
Harper has an awful lot
to choose from in those
roles.”
The most recent Lib-
eral meeting was held
Thursday in the Maple
Ridge library, with the
public invited to partic-
ipate in fundraising and
membership drives.
The Pitt Meadows-
Maple Ridge-Mission
Liberal riding associa-
tion has more than 50
members and wants to
increase that to 100.
Co mmuni c at i o ns
chair Kathleen Rake
said she didn’t want to
wait for a new leader
for the party, follow-
ing the post-election
resignation of leader
Michael Ignatieff.
“I want to work with
these new people and
fresh ideas to bring
new life to our local
party.”

Trustees are consider-
ing a wide array of cuts
to balance next year’s
budget, which they will
vote on at the end of
June.
Jefferson said the extra
funding could help lessen
the extent of those cuts.
“But we won’t know
until the end of the year,”
he said.
School board trustees
were presented with a
list of cuts recommended
by staff to help eliminate
the $2.2 million deficit
last week.
Along with the elimina-
tion of the elementary
school band teacher po-
sition, which parents and
students rallied to save,
staff suggested increas-
ing class sizes at the sec-
ondary and intermediate
levels, cuts to special
education and crossing
guards, a two per cent
reduction in services and

clerical hours, and can-
celing the district’s IT

In all, staff presented
more than 40 cost-saving
measures to help balance
the budget
The district is expect-
ing a $750,000 drop in
revenue next year due
largely to a reduction in
provincial funding, as
well as an $1.5 million in-
crease in costs from pen-
sions, MSP premiums,
and holiday pay.

THE NEWS/opinion
I
t is 10 o’clock in
the evening, as I
write this and the
sun is still lighting up
the room.
I am once again
in Nunavut and in
another month the
sun will not set at
all in this part of our
country, but just
circle around the sky,
rising towards noon
and falling towards
midnight, but never
disappearing behind
the horizon.
Until then, the days are getting longer
and longer, and consequently, the nights
very short.
Despite the glorious sunny weather, it
is still a winter landscape, with the tem-
perature hovering around the freezing
point. The locals consider this to be quite
balmy and inviting to go ice fishing on
the Hudson Bay or the numerous lakes or
hunting on the snow covered tundra. If
one does not wear good quality dark sun-
glasses, one gets a serious case of snow
blindness in short order. That is quite
painful and takes some time to recover;
very similar to welding flash burns.
After a few days out in the open, most
of the Inuit get quite a deep tan, with
the exception of the area where the
sunglasses protect the skin, creating an
unusual appearance when they take of
their glasses and the white skin around
the eyes offers a sharp contrast with the
brown facial appearance.
The next day I have off and it promises
to be very sunny. I have been invited to
go out with some friends on the sea ice
with snowmobiles and I will be outside
all day. At the end of the day, I will prob-
ably look like a reverse of a raccoon as
well.
It is rare to have a day off when work-
ing in the north as a physician, since
the demand for health care is high and
generally there are too few physicians to
meet that demand. This time, however,
there are five of us in Rankin Inlet. That
is a first for me in the eight years that I
have been going to Nunavut, off and on.
We are three fully licensed MDs and two
recent graduates who still need to com-
plete their training under supervision.
The health care centre is only open for
emergencies on the weekend and that
requires the presence of only two doctors
to deal with the usual work load. That
allows three of us to have a day off; one
day only, because we split the weekend
duties equally.
The workload during the weekdays
is very demanding, and at the end of
the day, all of us are quite tired if not
exhausted. Then we also have to take
our turn taking night calls a few times
a week. That can be exhausting too, but
so far I have been lucky that way. Good
thing, too, since yesterday I was on call
for the Kivalliq region, an area about four
times as large as Vancouver Island with
eight communities.
In addition to taking calls from the
nurses in the various settlements with-
out a physician, I also had to deal with
any emergencies locally. The workload is
not much different from a busy emer-
gency room in the Lower Mainland.
Only the kind of emergencies are often
different. Heart attacks are rare, injuries
from accidents with snow mobiles and all
terrain vehicles common. The results of
alcohol abuse and concomitant violence
are a sad outcome of the introduction of
western civilization.
Contagious diseases are rampant
because of overcrowding on account of
the housing shortage. The Inuit rightfully
have opted to live in houses instead of ig-
loos. As an emergency shelter, igloos are
great, but otherwise not comparable to
the comforts of a modern house. Unfortu-
nately, the government is building far too
few to house the exploding population.
Our health care system is partly to
blame for the rapidly increasing number
of people. The skill and quality of the
nurses and doctors working in the north
have drastically reduced the maternal
and infant mortality, and culturally birth
control is not a high priority, since not
too many years ago the Inuit had a rather
gruesome equilibrium of just maintain-
ing their numbers, because of the high
death rate in this very hostile and harsh
environment.
Western civilization has brought many
blessings, but also lots of new problems
to the Arctic. I will write more about this
next.

physician who lives in Maple Ridge.

A
boriginal fisheries on the lower Fraser
River are out of control, according to
evidence submitted by the Department
of Fisheries and Oceans to the Cohen Commis-
sion regarding the decline of Fraser sockeye.
DFO investigators estimate 97 per cent of
lower Fraser sockeye harvested under aborigi-
nal food fisheries are sold, which is not its in-
tent.
Much is going into cold storage, for later sale,
it is suspected.
This comes as no surprise, as commercial
fishermen have been complaining about, and
protesting, widespread native poaching and il-
legal sale of salmon for years, when commer-
cial fisheries and others were shut down.
Anyone wanting to buy fresh, poached salm-
on seems to be able to buy it, and no one just
looking for dinner much minds.
But commercial fishermen care.
The federal Cohen Commission cares.
While sockeye returned in near record num-
bers last summer, a similar run is not expected
this year.
Other reasons have been provided to explain
the sockeye decline, as well, like sharks, and
habitat destruction, climate change. Many
people fish illegally, not just First Nations.
But DFO investigators are right – the First
Nations fishery on the Lower Fraser River is
largely out of control – it is part of the prob-
lem, and should be considered and controlled
like a commercial fishery. If aboriginals can’t
respect their own fishery, why should they
profit over other fishermen?
A DFO assessment called for more effort to
identify and charge retail buyers in the Lower
Mainland, and more resources are needed to
step up enforcement.
However, further budget cuts are expected.
And poachers aren’t paying their fines: more
than $1 million in fines for illegal fishing in the
Pacific region are outstanding.
Profit, even cost savings, should not come at
the expense of the existence of sockeye in the
Fraser.
Someone needs to protect it.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Frogs settle down
when darkness falls (Along
the Fraser, May 13).
The article by Jack Em-
berly should be considered
a must-read by all.
According to Mike Stark
of Pitt Meadows, a true fol-
lower of the Lakota beliefs,
we appear to be entering a
time of great destruction.
Stark beautifully describes
the Katzie Slough wetlands
behind his home years ago
and the disturbing stark
contrast of the present.
He goes on to explain the
Lakota belief of the “Great
Mysterious” – “There’s a
spirit that moves through
everything.”
Our Lakota ancestors
must be crying when they
see what is happening here
today.
The Lakota believe that
mother Earth is like the hu-
man body, with a brain, ner-
vous system and organs that
filter out impurities. Blood
runs through everything.
If there are disruptions,
Earth will become sick and
eventually die.
Is there a possible disas-
ter coming sooner than we
think?
On the front page of the
previous Wednesday’s
News, under the picture
of the two young girls pet-
ting a young gosling (how
ironic), is a small in com-
parison article about Maple
Ridge Coun. Al Hogarth is
worries about Abbotsford’s
plans to tap into Stave Lake
for its drinking water. This
undertaking could require
the cordoning off of both the
Alouette and Stave Lake.
Is this something our La-
kota ancestors would ap-
prove of?
I and a group of other
concerned Maple Ridge
residents happened to be in
attendance at this meeting,
related to another matter. I
came away from the meet-
ing quite rattled.
This matter should be con-
sidered of grave importance
to all of us.
Please review these two
articles, and I would like to
thank Coun. Hogarth for his
research into and persis-
tence on the matter.

Re: MLA wants stronger rules for medical marijuana
(The News, May 18).
I don’t know why everyone has their bum in a knot over
the medical marijuana rules.
This program will be shut down by the end of the sum-
mer, and so will every compassion club in the nation.
The government will ignore court rulings, over-ride
the Charter, and shut the doors over at Health Canada’s
medical marijuana offices.
Then the RCMP – who already have all of our addresses
and plant and storage data on file – will start rounding up
former license holders.
Since, by that time, there will be new mandatory jail
sentences in place for growing more than even one plant,
all of the former license holders will have to cope with
their MS and cancer and epilepsy and AIDS in one of the
12 fancy new jails that Stephen Harper is building for us.
So all the pot-haters can now rejoice: Mr. Harper has
won, the medical pot program is officially dead, and all of
us dangerous gardeners can be caged easily so that the
gangsters can reap even bigger profits.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: MLA wants stronger rules for medical marijuana
(The News, May 18).
Marc Dalton, you fail to mention that the very reason
we have these types of violent crimes being committed
against permit holders is because we already have an
over-regulated system, and it’s called prohibition.
If we were to implement a legalized and regulated
system for cannabis similar to alcohol, we could let
an open and competitive market bring down the over-
inflated prices we now have with cannabis on the
streets.
By devaluing the current prices through a consistent
and safe reliable source of cannabis, you will see these
types of crimes disappear overnight. Just like when al-
cohol prohibition was repealed, the street gangs lost
a huge portion of their cash profits and their power
quickly began to fade away.
The only solution to the violent and dangerous crimes
being caused by the prohibition of cannabis is to repeal
the prohibition of cannabis now. More regulations will
only bring more dangers into our communities. Let’s
face it, this herb isn’t ever going away and the people’s
love for it is only going to grow.
By the way. Mr. Dalton, accusations are easy to throw
around, but until you have proof to back them up, I
suggest you stop the fear-mongering lies and begin to
listen to people like Michael Joinson, who are directly
involved with the medical marijuana program.

Re: B.C. government
launches HST ad campaign
(mapleridgenews.com)
I am sorry Christy Clark,
but cutting one or two per
cent off the HST will do noth-
ing to address the real flaws
and injustices in the HST.
It would not address the
fact that because labour
used to be tax exempt un-
der the PST and used to be
five percent, seniors and
other individuals that can
no longer do those house-
hold jobs themselves now
pay a whopping 12 per cent,
even 10 per cent is still a
100 per cent increase.
It will do absolutely noth-
ing to solve the medical
anomaly of paying 10 or 12
per cent on a health ther-
apy, registered massage
therapy – which I use to
control my fibromyalgia.
It would hardly make
a dent in the more than
$1,700 dollars this tax
gouge has cost me in less
than a year.
The consequence of the
HST is I live on very rap-
idly diminishing fixed pen-
sion.
Am I to believe that my
experience with the HST is
just another anomaly?
Stop with the throwing
good money after bad al-
ready.
WAYNE CLARK

Lakota ancestors must be crying about today
Homophobia should be discussed
T
he vitriolic
negative re-
action to the
Burnaby board of
education’s draft
anti-homophobia
policy is proving
why one is needed.
Many have
pointed out the
school district al-
ready has an anti-
bullying policy, as
well as others that
protect against
discrimination and
prejudice.
To have a specific one about LGBTQ
— the acronym that keeps on giving
— is redundant.
The protection is already there.
Those objections are the sane ones.
Others are not.
One clause has caused the most con-
sternation particularly, it would seem,
amongst fundamentalist Christians
and traditional conservatives.
It says, “Teachers shall be encour-
aged to embed and integrate LGBTQ
issues into existing curriculum in
age-appropriate ways to help students
acquire the skills and knowledge to
understand the impacts of homopho-
bia and transphobia upon society.”
The words “embed” and “integrate”
have been translated by the fear-
mongers to mean teachers are to
brainwash and convert all the little
Johnnys and Jills into demonic sexual
monsters.
While deciphering bureaucratic
writing can turn brains to mush, there
is at least one other interpretation.
What the policy is doing is suggest-
ing, at the right age level, it would be
a good idea to incorporate discussion
about issues surrounding LGBTQ.
For instance, social studies classes,
that’s if they still call it social studies,
talk about all sorts of issues of the
day, like racism, war, religion and,
horrors, political ideology.
Homophobia and all of its offshoots
are topics that should be discussed,
especially at the high school level.
This should be about broadening
student awareness on a wide variety
of topics.
The social ills that come with ho-
mophobia and discrimination against
sexual orientation are topics students
should be aware of. It’s about opening
their eyes and ears to what’s happen-
ing around them. Not brainwashing
them into ‘going down the wrong
path’ of sexual orientation.
Being heterosexual is not about be-
ing superior to other orientations or a
choice. It is simply what the majority
of human beings are.
There are several other orienta-
tions, as the ever-expanding acronym
would suggest, that make up the
minority. They all deserve the same
respect as the majority.
It is personal character that makes
someone a good person, not his or her
sexual orientation.
The policy also talks about how
there’s a need to model acceptance of
diversity. That not only applies to the
zillions of cultures Burnaby is blessed
with, but also to LGBTQ and hetero-
sexuals, artists and athletes, white
collar and blue collar, old and young,
rich and poor.
The board of education is not
exempt from any wrongdoing in this
matter. Trustees should be taken to
task for not being more open about
the process as it went along. Maybe
they thought since policies had been
developed by more than a dozen other
districts in the province with nary a
peep from the community that this
was just a mom-and-apple-pie issue
everyone would support.
The furor just may be an example of
why having an entire slate get elected
to the board isn’t such a hot idea for
democracy.
Not much opposition to what the
BCA does gets voiced. That may be
mainly because the city and district
are run so efficiently, but occasion-
ally it is because trustees can decide
everything behind closed doors.
Board chair Larry Hayes isn’t op-
posed to doing some fine tuning and
tweaking to the policy. It would be
a good idea to clarify some of the
bureaucratic wording.
The board is holding steadfast in its
intention to pass a policy because it is
the right thing to do, and so it should.
To abandon it would be bowing to
bigotry.
It may cost the BCA a bit at the bal-
lot box in November, though. Nor-
mally that might be a good thing, but
it would be for the wrong reasons.

Keep park green
From: left lougheed, posted on www.mapleridgenews.com.
Re: - Park perfect the way it is (Letters, May 18).
As our community grows, this empty spot will be more and more useful
as part of the Memorial Peace Park. Every time I am downtown, I am thank-
ful a hotel never got built there. It is definitely worth keeping green, as is.
It is personal character that
makes someone a good
person, not his or her sexual

8 -- Friday, May 20, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
The May long-weekend
is here and campers
from across the Lower
Mainland have already
started their annual pil-
grimage to Golden Ears
Provincial Park.
Park manager Stu
Burgess said he expects
more than 5,000 visitors
per day at the park over
the long weekend, with
1,500 to 2,000 visitors in
the campground area,
with an additional 3,000
to 4,000 visitors in the
day-use area.
Park staff have been
working around the
clock to prepare the park
for the first big camping
weekend of the summer.
“We are extremely
busy, cutting grass,
pressure-washing picnic
tables and cleaning up
all the debris that col-
lects during the winter,”
said Burgess.
The park’s 409 camp-
sites are expected to fill
up early today, accord-
ing to Burgess.
“Right now there’s a lot
of empty spots, but they
are filling up fast,” he
said. “But how busy we
will be, will ultimately
depend on the weather.”
The local weather fore-
cast calls for a mix of sun
and cloud for most of the
weekend, with a 30 per
cent chance of showers
Saturday and Sunday,
according to Environ-
ment Canada.
Campfires will be al-
lowed, provided they are
contained within the fire
rings and don’t exceed
half a metre in height.
As always, campfires
are banned in the park’s
backcountry, and any-
one caught breaking a
fire ban can be fined up
to $345 or, if convicted,
fined up to $100,000 and
sentenced to a year in
jail.
Nearly half of all wild-
fires at this time of year
result from human ac-
tivity. Since April 1, fire
crews have responded to
93 fires across the prov-
ince, of which 91 were
caused by humans, ac-
cording to the Ministry
of Forests, Lands and
Natural Resource Opera-
tions.
Ridge Meadows RCMP
will be maintaining a
presence in Golden Ears
park over the weekend.
While excessive alcohol
consumption is always
a concern, Burgess said
the problem has been a
minor one in years past.
“It’s the first weekend
of the year people have
to get out and enjoy
the outdoors,” he said.
“Some people do go over-
board, but generally they
only problems we have
are with noise. After a
few drinks, some people
don’t realize how loud
they are.”
Parking in Golden Ears
Provincial Park, and all
B.C. Parks, is now free.

No-trace camping tips:
• pack-in, pack-out - what
you bring in to a site should
be taken
home afterwards;
• stay on authorized roads,
trails, and designated
motorized
vehicle areas;
• limit your stay to no more
than 14 consecutive days;
• respect the peace and
quiet of others. Designated
quiet times
are 11 p.m. - 7 a.m.;
• keep campfres within
the fre rings provided.
Extinguish
campfres thoroughly
before you leave.

ONE LANE ROAD CLOSURE – DEWDNEY TRUNK ROAD
May 23 – July 15, 2011
Monday – Friday, 24 hours
Stave Falls Spillway Gates Reliability Project
and Completion of Gantry Crane Installation
The Stave Falls Spillway Gates Reliability Project has
begun. The project involves the replacement of the
four existing radial spillway gates and the existing
radial gate hoists. To operate the gates, BC Hydro
installed a new crane in 2010. This crane is required
to lift and lower the gates and is moved into position
on a rail that is embedded in the roadway. BC Hydro
will be replacing these rails starting mid-May, 2011.
A one lane closure of Dewdney Trunk Road for six
to eight weeks is required to complete this work.
Priority access will be given to emergency vehicles
and the school bus.
Periodic road closures of Dewdney Trunk Road will continue to be required over the next two years
to facilitate the replacement of the spillway gates. In general, these will be short-term (10-15
minutes) or single lane closures. To install the new gates, a full road closure of approximately
three days will be required four times during the two-year project.
Loop Trail will be closed over Blind Slough Dam during construction. BC Hydro will re-open road
and pedestrian access over the dam when construction schedules allow (e.g. primarily evenings
and weekends).
Hayward Lake Reservoir Lower Water Levels
Starting May 24, 2011 the Hayward Lake reservoir water level will be lowered to accommodate
annual maintenance on the Ruskin Dam spillway gates. Lowering of the reservoir will begin on
Tuesday, May 24 to reach the elevation of approximately 34.5 metres in four days.
Lower than average water levels will expose steep shorelines and slippery slopes along Hayward
Beach and the entire reservoir shore. The beach can be used with caution, but the water will not
be accessible. The Hayward boat launch and dog beach will be closed. The picnic grounds will
remain open and available for public use.
Trails will remain open; however hikers will be unable to complete the Railway / Reservoir Trail
loop due to the closure of both Ruskin Dam and the Floating Bridge at Hairsine Creek
An environmental management plan has been developed to protect fish and wildlife during the
lower water levels.
The water will begin rising again on Friday, June 24, 2011. Normal operating levels will return well
before Canada Day, July 1.
For more information on these projects, visit www.bchydro.com or email
LMSCommunityrelations@bchydro.com.
For 50 years, BC Hydro has been providing clean, reliable electricity to our customers. Today
we are planning for the next 50 years by investing in new projects, upgrading existing facilities
and working with our customers to conserve energy through Power Smart.

There’s a noise on the
street, the Vancouver
Canucks playoff tickets
are the hottest in town
and the team is making
the places that offer a
piece of playoff excite-
ment rock.
Every time the Ca-
nucks win a playoff
game or advance to the
next round, the band-
wagon of supporters
hungry for a piece of the
fun gets bigger, which
means bigger sales for
those in the business.
“It’s huge for us, better
than Christmas,” said
Cheryl Sahota, at Blue
Line Sports in Haney
Place Mall.
Sahota said sales of
Canucks sweaters, hats,
trinkets and T-shirts,
usually builds with each
playoff round the Ca-
nucks manage to win.
“This year it’s gone
the other way,” said Sa-
hota.
The first playoff
round, in which the
team tangled with their
nemesis, the Chicago
Black Hawks, saw brisk
sales. “Everybody was
just on the bandwagon.
I think people had a lot
of faith in this team, this
time around.” But after
that, sales tailed off, she
noted.
Canucks memorabilia
accounts for about 70
per cent of the store’s
sales most of the year,
except during the sum-
mer slowdown, when
B.C. Lions and Vancou-
ver Whitecaps para-
phernalia pick up.
Canucks jerseys, the
ones with orca whale
on the front, are still the
most popular, and those
with Burrows and Kes-
ler on the back are the
favourites.
When Henrik and
Daniel Sedin stumbled
in the first and second
round of the playoffs,
sales of those sweaters
slowed, but now that
the twins have picked
up their games and got
a few goals against the
San Jose Sharks, jer-
seys with their names
are becoming more
popular.
The Johnny Canuck
logo, which features
the lumberjack wield-
ing a hockey stick, was
popular two years ago,
then faded, but seem to
be coming back when
it comes to T-shirt de-
signs, Sahota notes.
Game nights are bet-
ter than ever at the
Jolly Coachman Pub in
Pitt Meadows, with the
Canucks still in the hunt
for the cup.
The place is usually
busy, but when a Ca-
nucks game is on every
second night, “we’re full
to the rafters.
“It’s been great for us.
It seems the farther they
go, the more people get
into it. We hope they go
all the way,” said man-
ager Bruce McGregor.
On game nights, cus-
tomers also get a chance
to win something they
can take home – a jer-
sey bearing the name
and number of one of
the team. One is given
away every game night,
McGregor said.
The playoff enthusi-
asm also helps counter-
act the business down-
turn from last July’s
introduction of the HST
and the tougher drink-
ing and driving rules
now in place in B.C.
However, the pub of-
fers the A Safe Ride ser-
vice, in which patrons
can get a ride home and
have someone drive
home their car as well,
McGregor says.
“They’re being smart-
er. They’re getting rides,
they’re getting cabs.”
At Canadian Tire,
owner Bryan Hutton
reports healthy sales of
Canuck-ware, though
no particular item is fly-
ing off the shelves.
All happy when ‘Nucks on playof run

The familiar blue, green
and white of the Vancouver
Canucks are becoming an
increasingly common sight
as the NHL hockey team ven-
tures further into the 2011
Stanley Cup Playoffs. How-
ever, many local fans are not
content with merely flying
their team’s colours, and are
using the Canucks’ popular-
ity to help raise money for a
worthy cause.
At Albion elementary in
east Maple Ridge, students
will be paying 25 cents each
for the privilege of wearing
their Canucks gear to class
today.
The money raised will ben-
efit the Canuck Place Chil-
dren’s Hospice, a pediatric
palliative care centre in Van-
couver that provides comfort
and care to children living
with progressive, life-threat-
ening illnesses.
Albion principal Ron Lan-
zarotta said the school held
a Canucks Day last week
and was surprised by how
many students showed up in
their Canucks jerseys and T-
shirts
“We had such a good turn
out last week, we thought we
would try and encourage do-
nations and do some good,”
he said.
The challenge has gone
out to all the schools in the
district, as well as to the dis-
trict’s administrative staff.
Meanwhile, local bartender
Cale Reining is also raising
money for Canuck Place, by
growing out a greasy hockey
mullet not unlike that of his
favourite Canuck, Tanner
Glass.
“It’s the 21st Century, so
you can’t really rock a mul-
let, unless it means some-
thing,” explains Reining.
He calls his fundraiser Mul-
lets With Meaning, and has
already collected more than
$800 towards his goal of rais-
ing $1,000 for Canuck Place.
“As long as people keep do-
nating, I’ll keep growing it,”
said Reining. “Luckily my
manager is cool with it.”
Canucks fans support the team, and the kids

“It’s sort of so-so. The
car flags are a passe
item, maybe.”
Compared with previ-
ous years, “there’s defi-
nitely not the numbers
of vehicles with flags on
them now.”
But Canuck clothes are
selling well and the orca
logo is the most popular
when it comes to jersey
designs, though for car
flags, “it’s all over the
map.”
Hutton said each time
the team has moved to
the next round, he antici-
pated a big jump in sales,
but it hasn’t happened
yet. If the team manages
to get into the final, “at
this point, we’re not sure
if we’ll get the big rush.”
But suppliers have
their presses and de-
signs ready to pump out
championship T-shirts
and jerseys at a mo-
ment’s notice if the team
wins the sacred prize,
the Stanley Cup.

Polarized sunglasses have been
popular for years with people who
enjoy water and snow sports.
Combating glare in these situations
is very important for visual quality. At
these times, polarized sunglasses
will effectively reduce glare by
blocking the horizontal reflection of
light from above and below. Adding
an anti-glare coating to the back
of the lens is also very beneficial,
resulting in a crisper, clearer vision
with enhanced natural colours.

Maple Ridge
12 -- Friday, May 20, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
If you don’t want the
city to borrow millions
of dollars to complete
upgrades to the hockey
arena, you’ll have until
July to voice your disap-
proval.
The city is looking to
borrow up to $4.5 million
for the project, which ran
over budget after crews
discovered piles under
the arena needed to be
reinforced.
The total cost of the
project is now $6.8 mil-
lion up from a previous
$5.3 million.
Council approved an
alternative approval
process Tuesday, a step
required before it can
borrow the cash.
If at least 10 per cent or
1,152 of the 11, 517 eligible
votes in Pitt Meadows
oppose the borrowing
bylaw, it must be taken
to a formal referendum
vote.
The proposed deadline
for electors to sign an
elector response form is
July 5.
Ditch for Wildwood
The City of Pitt Mead-
ows will spend over
$14,000 to dig a ditch be-
hind home plagued by
poor drainage.
Council approved the
expense at a meeting
Tuesday and hopes the
trench will divert sur-
face water into nearby
culverts or drains.
The ditch will be dug
behind Wildwood Cres-
cent, near a paved trail,
which residents believe
is trapping water behind
their homes.
An engineering study
conducted by the City
of Pitt Meadows found
the recreation trail con-
structed as part of the
Golden Ears Bridge proj-
ect is not affecting sub-
surface drainage.
The flooding, it sug-
gested, was most likely
being caused by “natural
ponding”.
A long-time Pitt Mead-
ows resident will be vy-
ing for a seat on city
council this November.
Dave Murray an-
nounced his intentions
Tuesday, after a council
meeting and the launch
of pittmeadowstodayon-
line.blogspot.com, a blog
focused on the city.
“I am big fan of Pitt
Meadows. I think it’s the
best city in all of British
Columbia,” said Mur-
ray, who ran as a NDP
candidate in Abbotsford
during the recent fed-
eral election and earned
20 per cent (10,089) of
total votes.
The federal contest
whetted Murray’s inter-
est for politics.
“It was a humbling
experience going up
against a Conservative
juggernaut, but we were
able to do what no other
riding in Western Cana-
da could do for the NDP
– double our amount of
votes,” he added.
Murray is a former
small business owner
who operated Tiger
Sports Collectibles in
Port Coquitlam and Ma-
ple Ridge.
He currently works
for the parks and rec-
reations department for
the City of Port Coquit-
lam, maintaining sports
fields, trails and build-
ings.
He is also the secre-
tary treasurer for the
Fraser Valley Labour
Council, based in Ab-
botsford, as well as for
CUPE B.C. Fraser Val-
ley district.
Pitt Meadows’
contract with
CUPE goes to
2012.
Murray has
lived in Pitt
Meadows since
1989 and moved
to Port Coquit-
lam for a year,
only to head
back.
“It’s got the
least crime, it’s
the cleanest, got great
facilities. It’s got a great
basketball team that
wins every year,” said
Murray, who is a good
friend of Pitt secondary
basketball coach Rich
Goulet.
Murray also coached
basketball and baseball
locally and at Capilano
College and Terry Fox
secondary.
C u r r e n t
Pitt Meadows
mayor Don
MacLean will
not be seek-
ing re-elec-
tion this year,
a position he
has held for
12 years.
Councillors
Doug Bing
and Deb Wal-
ters will be
vying for his seat, leav-
ing two spots open on
council.
The other four cur-
rent members of coun-
cil – John Becker, Gwen
O’Connell, Bruce Bell
and Tracy Miyashita –
will also seek re-elec-
tion this fall.

Ridge Meadows RCMP
believe alcohol was a
contributing factor in
a crash on the Golden
Ears Bridge Wednesday
night.
A 35-year-old man
from Langley drove his
Ford Focus into a guard
rail while heading south
on the span around 11
p.m.
Insp. Derren Lench
said police arrived
shortly after the crash
and noticed the man ap-
peared to be drunk.
A sample of his breath
produced a ‘fail’ reading
on a roadside screening
device.
As a result, the man
received an immediate
roadside prohibition,
which means his driver’s
license was suspended
for 90 days and his car is
impounded for 30 days.
Medical grow rip
Five men barged into a
Maple Ridge home early
Wednesday in an at-
tempt to steal a medical
marijuana crop.
A man and woman in-
side called police around
5:45 a.m. and were un-
harmed in the home in-
vasion on 228th Street.
Insp. Derren Lench
said the men forced
open the front door to
the residence.
Police believe some of
the men had weapons,
but all left without tak-
ing anything once they
realized Mounties were
on the way.
A police dog was un-
able to locate the sus-
pects.
“This appears to be
a targeted attack on a
medicinal marijuana
growing operation,” said
Lench.
“We have seen an in-
crease in this type of
criminal activity in the
Lower Mainland lately.”
Dangerous driving
Police are recommend-
ing dangerous driving
charges against a Pitt
Meadows man following
a crash early Monday.
The crash happened
around 7:30 a.m. on
Lougheed Highway,
near Allen Way.
The man was travelling
west when a 47-year-old
woman in another car
infuriated him by mak-
ing a crude gesture in
his direction.
Police allege the man
then drove his car in
front of the woman’s
SUV, causing a collision.
The woman was taken
to hospital with non-life
threatening injuries.
Break-in
A television, televi-
sion monitor, sound
system, lap top com-
puter, cash and a cel-
lular phone were stolen
Monday morning dur-
ing a break-in in Maple
Ridge.
Thieves entered a
house on River Road
between 11 a.m. and
12:30 p.m. by climbing
up to a second floor bal-
cony and prying open a
sliding glass door.
Woman burned in Maple Ridge fire
A woman was tak-
en to hospital early
Wednesday following a
small fire at a house in
Maple Ridge.
The fire near 210th
Street and Dewd-
ney Trunk Road was
caused by an electric
space heater placed
too close to a bed.
Fire chief Peter Groo-
tensdorst said the
heater ignited sheets
while the woman was
asleep around 4 a.m.
A smoke alarm woke
up two other residents
of the house, as well as
a child, who rushed in
to rescue the sleeping
woman.
A neighbour dragged
the burning mattress
into the backyard and
put the flames out with
water.
“By the time crews
got there, the fire was
out,” said Grooten-
dorst.
The 26-year-old wom-
an is still being treated
for severe burns.
Damage from the fire
was confined to the
bed and some parts of
the floor.
Grootendorst re-
minds resident to be
careful when using
space heaters and
added this fire demon-
strates the importance
of having a working
smoke alarm.
“The smoke alarm
alerted them to the fire
and allowed them to
get out,” he said.
Smoke alarm saves
another life
The Maple Ridge Fire
Department credits a
smoke alarm for sav-
ing the life of a woman
who fell asleep while
cooking Wednesday
evening in Maple
Ridge.
The fire started
around 5:30 p.m.
at a house in the
20400-block of 122nd
Avenue after oil placed
on a stove ignited and
flared up to engulf
kitchen cabinets.
Fire chief Peter
Grootendorst said a
smoke alarm woke up
the woman, who used
a fire extinguisher to
put out the flames.

Coleman sent B.C.
Hydro “back to the
drawing board” on
Ruskin, seeking ways to
ease steep rate increas-
es coming to B.C. power
customers to pay for its
province-wide surge of
upgrades and new con-
struction.
Coleman said Wednes-
day that he isn’t quite
finished his review,
and plans to tour the
Ruskin site, but it has
become clear to him
that work should pro-
ceed at Ruskin, as well
as the John Hart dam at
Campbell River.
“The challenge with
both the Ruskin and
John Hart dams is that
they have significant
downstream environ-
mental impacts if they’re
not there now, because
the salmon spawning
area is actually below
the height of the dams,”
Coleman said.
“Plus, [at Ruskin]
there are industrial us-
ers down below, a cou-
ple of shake mills and
also some residential
stuff, so you have to look
at the whole thing.”
It is technically pos-
sible to lower Hayward
Lake near Mission over
time and decommis-
sion the Ruskin dam,
but Coleman said after
studying the business
case, he agrees with B.C.
Hydro that it should be
kept as a steady source
of power in the densely
populated Lower Main-
land.
NDP energy critic
John Horgan predicted
that the $8 billion esti-
mate for Site C will rise
again before the pro-
jected completion date
of 2020.
Because the B.C. Lib-
eral government ex-
empted Site C and other
big projects from inde-
pendent review, it’s not
clear if B.C. really needs
the power to meet do-
mestic supply, he said.
“I think we’ve got a
couple of billion dollars
more to go before we’re
done, and that’s why we
need to have, not politi-
cians making these deci-
sions, not self-appointed
bureaucrats, but the in-
dependent B.C. Utilities
Commission,” Horgan
said.
Coleman said he’s sat-
isfied that the Ruskin
project can pay for it-
self in 12 years, and the
John Hart upgrade will
recover its costs in 10
years. Those estimates
include rate hikes that
could total 50 per cent
in the next five years.
Coleman said Site C
will help power a wave
of industrial growth
in northern B.C., from
the 100-year supply of
natural gas in the Horn
River and Montney
shales to at least four
and as many as six
new mines supplied by
a new power line into
northwest B.C.
Black Press
ICBC has withdrawn
its plan to make drivers
with speeding tickets
or other recent traffic
violations pay more in
order to give those with
a clean record deeper
discounts.
Public Safety Minister
Shirley Bond said she
ordered the public auto
insurer to “go back to
the drawing board and
rethink the options” for
major reforms to the
rate structure.
Bond said any hike in
premiums from a single
speeding ticket – which
ICBC originally intend-
ed – is “not reasonable”,
but left the door open for
changes based on driv-
ing records, rather than
just at-fault claims.
ICBC president and
CEO Jon Schubert said
the corporation didn’t
adequately communicate
the planned changes.
“We apologize for the
concern this caused,”
Schubert said. “We’re
going to take a step back
and rethink the options
for a reasonable way to
share risk, and we’ll do a
much better job of gath-
ering public input.”
Province-wide consul-
tations are promised on
a range of options.

The Haney Farmers’
Market kicked off its
seventh season at Maple
Ridge’s Memorial Peace
Park this month, with
more vendors, and more
opportunities for local
residents to buy food
grown close to home.
Market manager Ei-
leen Dwillies said there
are more than 200 ven-
dors taking part in this
year’s markets, the ma-
jority of whom specialize
in fresh, local produce.
“Grocery stores use
weeks-old produce, they
keep it refrigerated or
on ice so it doesn’t spoil,”
she said. “Everything
at the market has been
picked that morning or
the day before.”
You can also talk di-
rectly to the farmer who
grows the vegetables,
she said.
“Some people say it
costs a little bit more,
but if you care about
what you are putting
into your mouth, it’s
more than worth it,”
said Dwillies.
Anywhere from 40 to 60
vendors take part in the
market every weekend.
Of those vendors, 80 per

“All of our vendors are
from B.C., the majority
from the Lower Main-
land,” she said. “I think
if you hadn’t been to the
market in a few years,
you’d be quite surprised
if you came back.”
The Haney Farmers’
Market runs every Sat-
urday from 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. until the end of Oc-
tober.
The Pitt Meadows
Farmers’ Market moves
from Osprey Village to
the Pitt Meadows Spirit
Square on Harris Road
this year.
“We had a wonderful
response from the peo-
ple at Osprey Village,
but the problem was
that the site wasn’t big
enough,” said Dwillies.
“The Spirit Square is go-
ing to be quite the busy
spot this summer.”
The new site features
more space for vendors,
and more free parking.
The Pitt Meadows
Farmers Market runs
Sundays from 10 a.m. to
2 p.m. from June 19 to
September 11.
A draw of a $100 Mar-
ket Shopping Spree is
being offered to people
who purchase new $10
Friend of the Market
memberships until July
9. The membership sup-
ports the work of the
Haney Farmers Market
Society and provides an
email newsletter, early
information on special
events and occasional
specials at the Sizzlin’
Smokey Dog stand,
which is a fundraiser of
the society. The draw
will take place in front
of The ACT at noon on
July 9.

VICTORIA DAY
64 Avenue & 202 Street, Langley
Store hours: Monday - Sunday 7:00 am - 11:00 pm
18 -- Friday, May 20, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
VICTORIA – The B.C.
government has an-
nounced a new civilian
office that will inves-
tigate serious miscon-
duct claims against
RCMP officers in the
province.
The new office follows
the recommendations
of the inquiry into the
death of Polish immi-
grant Robert Dziekan-
ski at Vancouver Inter-
national Airport in 2007.
A special prosecutor
announced last week
that the four RCMP of-
ficers involved in the
arrest and Tasering of
Dziekanski have been
charged with perjury
in relation to their tes-
timony at the inquiry.
The new police over-
sight office will work
alongside the existing
B.C. Police Complaint
Commissioner, who in-
vestigates complaints
about conduct of mu-
nicipal police officers.
The new independent
office was one of the
recommendations of
retired judge Thomas
Braidwood, who led
a public inquiry into
the Dziekanski case in
light of a video of the
airport incident taken
by a traveler.
Braidwood said the
B.C. government has
carried through on his
main recommendation
to move away from po-
lice investigating their
own conduct, in the
Dziekanski case and
that of Frank Paul, a
homeless alcoholic
who died after being
dragged from police
cells and left in a Van-
couver alley in 1998.
NDP public safety
critic Kathy Corrigan
said the new office is a
long overdue step, de-
layed by a “revolving
door” of public safety
ministers in the B.C.
Liberal government in
recent years.
Premier Christy Clark
said she spoke to Dzie-
kanski’s mother Tues-
day, and also to Linda
Bush, whose son Ian
was shot and killed at
the RCMP detachment
in Houston B.C. in 2005.
Both were pleased that
their loss at least led to
change, Clark said.
The biggest obstacle
to creating the new of-
fice was negotiating
to allow the investiga-
tions, since the RCMP
reports only to the fed-
eral government.
Public Safety Minis-
ter Shirley Bond said
the goal is to staff the
new office completely
with investigators who
have never worked for
a police force. But ini-
tially the independent
investigation office will
use retired police inves-
tigators who have been
outside B.C. for at least
five years, she said.

I
was afraid it would
happen again. Last
week I had a call
from a parent asking
my advice on a matter
which I find extremely
difficult to offer advice
for; after all, the stakes
are very high.
This is not the first
time I’ve been asked. In
fact, it happens a lot
more often than I would
like and while I would
like to maintain a calm
and rational approach
to responding, I must
confess sometimes to
feeling angry at being
put on the spot.
The request was for
me to “approve” a grad
party where students
would go to the home
of a family, give up the
keys to their vehicles
and have to stay all
night, then have a party
under the supervision
of the parents that
included alcohol.
I told the father that
serving alcohol to
minors was illegal and
that there was no way
I could condone or
support the party as it
could put me, and the
school, in a compromis-
ing legal tangle should
any problems arise.
(To cover my butt, I
made sure to write him
a formal letter on school
letterhead expressing
that sentiment. I have
had the experience of
students and parents
intimating they had my
support when others
have questioned such
parties.)
Naturally, I then had
to listen to the argu-
ment I’ve heard many
times before, that teens
are going to drink
anyway and thus it’s
better that they do so in
a supervised and con-
trolled setting. I am not
going to deny that for
some students that is
a legitimate argument
and I am sympathetic
to the well-intentioned
parent who feels this is
the best alternative to
ensure safety.
But there is a funda-
mental principle that
makes it impossible
to show any support;
it is illegal to serve, or
knowingly allow minors
to drink alcohol in your
home.
We all know that
many young people
see the graduation or
prom event as a rite of
passage which includes
embellished stories
around binge drink-
ing. The entire purpose
of including alcohol is
to encourage getting
drunk.
For many parents, it is
an experience they have
had themselves or it’s
one of those experienc-
es they see as inevitable
and for which
they have
little power
or leverage to
influence. For
them, manag-
ing this rite of
passage, de-
spite the legal
risk entailed,
is better than
sticking their
head in the
sand and hop-
ing their child
comes home
from some unknown
location safely.
As an educational ad-
ministrator and health
teacher, I have never
accepted the inevitabil-
ity of binge drinking as
a rite of passage. It’s
a choice that students
make, and sometimes a
dangerous choice when
driving is involved,
drugs are mixed in, or
there is no one to bring
some common sense
to the evolution of ac-
tivities that often occur
once the party begins.
No student ever plans
to have a disaster oc-
cur, but some-
times that’s
exactly what
happens, and
when it does,
there will be a
lot of regrets,
pointing fin-
gers and legal
actions.
My goal
is always to
educate, both
students and
parents, in
an attempt to
reduce the perceived
necessity of involving
excessive alcohol in any
celebrations. Ideally,
I’d love to see the rites
of passage change.
Let me start with a
simple principle. Not
every student needs
to or wants to binge
drink. In fact, my
experience is that most
do not.
However, caught in
a social situation that
reinforces such behav-
iour, many will follow,
reluctantly, naively, but
still they will follow.

Award for youth centre
The District of Maple Ridge has wona provincial
facility excellence award from the B.C. Recreation
and Parks Association for the Greg Moore Youth
RecreationCentre.
The youth centre supports a wide range of ac-
tivities and events for the community and fosters
an environment in which community organiza-
tions work as a teamto provide services that meet
the needs of its youth. It features a large, open ac-
tive area with a rock climbing wall, multi-purpose
room, teaching kitchen/concession area, commu-
nity meetingspace, computer lab, andmore.
The facility’s “Community Team Approach” of
bringingtogether youthgroups andorganizations,
community service providers working in the area
of prevention and district staf, has strengthened
the recreation programthrough both the ability of
workers to refer youth to services and for partners
torefer themtorecreationopportunities.
“It is a testament to the forethought that went
into the Greg Moore Youth Recreation Centre that
it has withstood the test of time and is still consid-
ered state of the art after 10 years of operation,”
said Suzanne Allard Strutt, BCRPA chief executive
of cer.
“The centre serves as anexample of howexten-
siveyouthengagement andcommunity input cre-
ated an optimal design addressing as many needs
as possibleall inonefacility.”
The Facility Excellence Award recognizes excel-
lence in facility concept, design development,
maintenance and operation. Award winners dem-
onstrate outstanding innovation which has made,
or could make, signifcant impact in the parks and
recreationfeld.
The BCRPA award conference brings together
members of the parks, recreation, physical activ-
ity and culture sector fromaround B.C., including
elected of cials, volunteers, members of the busi-
ness community andothers.
Their inexperience often puts
them the most at risk and leaves
them vulnerable to excessive
encouragement from others
that can create a whole host of
potential problems, from sexual
abuse to alcohol poisoning.
The first part of deciding how
to handle this impending chal-
lenge as a parent is to have a
very frank discussion with your
child about your concerns, fears
and expectations. If your child
has similar concerns about po-
tential problems, then it is easy
to strategize about alternative
plans that can take away the
social stigma of compulsory
attendance or participation at
illegal activities. Personally, I
never had any difficulty being
the ‘bad guy’ that my kids could
use as an excuse to avoid peer
pressure – never.
I also never had any fear of
hosting parties where it was
clear from the beginning that
no alcohol, no drugs and plenty
of adult supervision would take
place. Many kids preferred
that kind of party because it
was safe and controlled. There
wasn’t a drop of alcohol in
my house at those times and
I never went to bed until the
last student was home safely or
tucked in if they were staying
the night.
Every parent must under-
stand that if your child is a mi-
nor, and his or her friends are
minors, the responsibility for
anything that happens either
to them, or as a result of their
actions, falls on your shoulders
if any substances that affect
their ability to make reasonable
decisions are offered or even
snuck in to a poorly supervised
gathering.
I could go on, quite a bit, but
for now, I’ll simply suggest that
next week I will address the
issues of education needed for
students who might find them-
selves in, or choose to be in, a
situation where binge drinking
is the order of the day.

T
he discovery of Rita
Chretien alive and well
in the Nevada wilder-
ness is an amazing story. She
survived for seven weeks,
stranded in her van as her
husband had gone to look for
help. As of this writing, he is
still missing.
Apparently, Rita Chretien is
a woman of faith in God and
her faith played a significant
role in her survival. She
survived on water, snow and
a small rationing of trail mix
over that long period of time.
She read her Bible, prayed,
wrote in a journal, and the
few books that she brought,
she read several times.
The Nevadan hunters who
rescued her made a wrong
turn as they headed toward
a canyon, but felt a compul-
sion to keep on going. Chad
Herman said, “We feel it was
meant to be and I think it was
the heavenly Father leading
us in the right direction.”
The family’s faith in God is
clearly evident as in every
interview with their son he
has purposely and repeatedly
attributed praise to God and
Jesus Christ.
With God, all things are
possible. And he is a God
who takes pleasure in rescue
missions. Jesus said, “I have
come to seek and to save
those who are lost.”
The word lost that Jesus is
referring to has to do with
man’s ability to somehow
locate God and
establish a relation-
ship with him. The
majority of people
alive today are lost
in this regard. They
don’t know how to
find God.
A supervisor and
personal friend of
mine had been to
our church out in the
country two or three
times previously.
On his last intended
visit he was bringing
our scheduled guest, but as
he came across the bridge, he
decided to punch in our ad-
dress in his new GPS. It took
him way out Dewdney Trunk
east past Stave Lake and we
got a sheepish call
of apology later that
afternoon.
Sometimes we
get led astray; we
get lost – despite
the best technology
available.
It’s one thing to get
lost geographically,
but it’s another thing
completely to get
lost eternally.
God doesn’t want
that to happen to
you.
He sent his son.
Find him.
Les Warriner is pastor
of Living Way Foursquare
Church in Maple Ridge.

T
he simple act of planting a tomato is
something that many of us take for
granted.
We just assume that if we are
willing to put it in the ground, that it
somehow owes us a bountiful crop.
Sadly enough, there are a lot of
disappointed people out there, and
if you have ever used those pasty,
bland, juice-abandoned tomatoes
that the supermarkets are so fond of
selling, you know exactly what I’m
talking about.
So I’d like to introduce you to
someone who takes his tomato
growing seriously, to the tune of
about 200 pounds a year – all of
which is either dried, made into
sauce or eaten fresh by Erwin
Gygli and his family, who live in Pitt
Meadows.
Erwin is a grower by profession and his
business, Heimat Farm, specializes in herbs,
edible crops and exotic plants sold to garden
centres and direct to public at the Trout Lake
Farmer’s Market in Vancouver.
His appreciation of gardening and of
edibles, in particular, comes in part from his
love of cooking, because sooner or later you
realize that it’s the fresh ingredients that
make the meal.
As a result, he and his wife Sharon have
an extensive kitchen garden, chock full of
seasonal produce, and Erwin has graciously
agreed to share a few of his tomato-growing
secrets with us.
• Soil preparation: Erwin believes that
if you want good tasting tomatoes, you are
going to have to take some time preparing
the soil. Tomatoes are heavy feeders and
they need good drainage, so he recommends
raised planters and adding liberal amounts
of compost (he prefers leaf mould), as well as
dolomite lime, bone and blood meal (follow
the label rate) to the soil. The dolomite lime
raises the pH and provides calcium, prevent-
ing blossom end rot (a common deficiency
problem).
• Types of tomatoes: tomatoes come in
two basic growth forms: determinate and in-
determinate – or to put it in layman’s terms,
bush and vining. Erwin keeps vining types to
a single stem, which he stakes high, as these
plants continue producing right up until the
frosts – the suckers should also be removed.
For determinate types he prefers young
plants with two strong branches diverging
from a single stem. He plants these to just
below the fork. You can use a tomato cage to
support bush types, and Erwin only allows
about seven fruit trusses to develop, pinching
out the rest. This increases the size and qual-
ity of the tomatoes.
• Planting tomatoes: tomatoes
are heat-loving plants and most
people plant them outdoors too
early – so Erwin recommends the
Victoria Day May long-weekend
as a good rule of thumb. Because
tomatoes are capable of developing
roots anywhere along the stem,
they should be planted deeply,
at least up to the first set of true
leaves.
For really leggy plants, Erwin
simply strips off the lower leaves
(he uses these as a mulch to repel
carrot rust fly) and plants it side-
ways in a trench, carefully staking
the crown upright. The resulting roots draw
more nutrients and make the plant less sus-
ceptible to drought.
•Watering: Erwin uses slightly warm water
when the plants are first transplanted, as
this encourages root growth. He makes sure
never to water the plants in the evening and
keeps the foliage dry.
His tomatoes are grown in a south-facing
lean-to to repel rain so that when late blight
(an airborne fungal disease that germinates
on wet foliage) arrives in late summer, he
doesn’t have to worry about it – so he recom-
mends some sort of cover by August.
•Personal favourites: for slicing and
salads, Erwin prefers the rich flavour of
‘Black Krim’ and ‘Brandywine’ (both red and
yellow varieties). He rates ‘Sungold’ as the
best fresh-eating cherry tomato, while the
firmer ‘Tomaccio’ is great for barbequing on
skewers or pan-roasting and adding to fresh
pasta. For all-around use and convenience he
also recommends ‘Patio’, which works well in
containers.
• Erwin’s basic soup and sauce recipe
(this basic recipe can be modified with any
number of herbs or fresh vegetables):
Dry roast half a Spanish onion with three
garlic cloves and then chop fine, add these to
three pounds of blanched/peeled tomatoes
(try ‘Roma’, ‘Striped Roman’ or ‘Brandywine’)
and bake uncovered for 1.5 hours at 375 F.
Once cooled, the sauce can be ladled into
Ziplock bags and laid on a cookie sheet to be
frozen, after which they stack like bricks.

Aboriginal fisheries
on the lower Fraser
River are “out of con-
trol” and vast amounts
of salmon supposed
to go strictly for food,
social and ceremonial
purposes are instead
sold on the black mar-
ket.
That’s the assessment
of Department of Fish-
eries and Oceans (DFO)
staff tabled in evidence
this week at the Cohen
Commission into the
decline of Fraser sock-
eye.
DFO investigators es-
timated 97 per cent of
lower Fraser sockeye
harvested under ab-
original food fisheries
are sold, according to
one document summa-
rizing internal depart-
ment concerns after an
April 2010 meeting.
Scott Coultish, who
heads DFO’s Intelli-
gence and Investiga-
tion Services branch,
defended the figure
before the commission
Tuesday, saying it re-
flects staff estimates.
That and other evi-
dence filed at the in-
quiry gave fresh weight
to long-running claims
of widespread native
poaching and illegal
sale of salmon.
“The root cause of il-
legal harvest is the sale
of that product,” said
the 2010 document.
A 2006 operational in-
telligence assessment
by DFO’s Special Inves-
tigations Unit warned
illegal sales of First
Nations-caught fish is
widespread across B.C.
via back door dealing
to restaurants and fish
shops as well as door-
to-door sales.
“The FSC (food, social
and ceremonial) First
Nations fishery on the
Lower Fraser River is
largely out of control
and should be consid-
ered in all contexts, a
commercial fishery,”
the assessment said,
warning DFO is “un-
able to effectively con-
trol the illegal sales.”
Various methods and
levels of sophistication
allow First Nations-
caught salmon to be
laundered into regular
commercial markets, it
added.
The assessment
called for more effort to
identify and charge re-
tail buyers in the Lower
Mainland and said more
resources are needed to
step up enforcement.
The findings were
in response to a 2005
probe by fishery of-
ficers who suspected
large amounts of First
Nations-caught sockeye
was going into cold stor-
age at outlets across
the Lower Mainland for
later illegal sale.
Project Ice Storm was
an audit of 110 Lower
Mainland fish plants
that found 345,000 sock-
eye in storage as of Sep-
tember 2005.
That was the end of a
season where low sock-
eye returns meant no
commercial fishery was
allowed, nor was any
aboriginal economic
opportunity fishing (a
limited for-profit com-
mercial fishery for First
Nations.)
All the fish in the
plants was therefore
FSC fish and much of
it seemed packaged for
sale.
But the investigation
ran out of funding, DFO
officers never got proof
any of the frozen salm-
on were sold and no
prosecutions resulted,
the inquiry was told.
Randy Nelson, DFO’s
director of conserva-
tion and protection in
the Pacific region, said
further budget cuts
expected will likely
continue to limit the
department’s ability to
target illegal sales and
poaching.
Although it’s impos-
sible to say how much
illegal fishing happens,
Nelson told the inquiry
he believes it may ac-
count for hundreds of
thousands of sockeye
vanishing each year,
but not millions.
Many people fish ille-
gally, he said, not just
First Nations.
Even when poachers
are caught many never
pay their fines.
There’s more than $1
million in outstanding
fines for illegal fishing
in the Pacific region,
according to an update
tabled at the inquiry.
Sto:lo fisher advisor
Ernie Crey, speaking
outside the hearings,
dismissed the allega-
tion large amounts of
sockeye are illegally
sold by First Nations.
He said aboriginal
people don’t use tra-
ditional preservation
methods as much and
have increasingly
turned to industrial
freezers.
“It’s not prohibited,”
Crey said. “We can do
that if we choose, along
with all other Canadi-
ans.”
He said DFO wrongly
assumed the fish in
2005 was destined for
the black market.
“They don’t have any
direct evidence that’s
the case,” he said.
B.C. Conservative
party leader John Cum-
mins said he feels vin-
dicated by the evidence
presented this week.
The longtime com-
mercial fishermen was
fined $200 in Surrey
court Monday for his
role in a 2002 protest
fishery that tried to
shame DFO into crack-
ing down on aboriginal
food fish sales.
“It just underscores
what we have been pro-
testing and saying all
these years,” Cummins
said.
He said he doesn’t
blame First Nations for
the entire downturn of
Fraser sockeye, but he
said they are part of the
problem.
“It makes the man-
agement of the fishery
so much more difficult
for the department
when they don’t know
how many are going
upstream,” Cummins
said.
“The resource is at
risk. If we don’t do the
right thing, we’re going
to lose it.”
Cummins has not yet
paid the latest $200 fine
nor another one for
$300 handed down last
December for another
fishing protest in 2001.
He said he hasn’t yet
decided whether he will
pay.

B.C. cities are fighting
back against years of
repeated attacks from
business lobby groups
over municipal spending
and taxation policies.
They’ve released their
own analysis that con-
cludes small business
demands for lower tax
rates would shift more
of the tax burden to
residential payers, re-
sulting in a 14.5 per cent
property tax hike for the
average B.C. home, or an
extra $230 per year.
The report by the
Union of B.C. Municipali-
ties (UBCM) counters a
series of papers by the
Canadian Federation of
Independent Business
(CFIB), rejecting claims
of out-of-control civic
spending.
“Municipalities are
investing more in the
areas that matter most
to our communities,”
said UBCM president
Barbara Steele, a Surrey
councillor. “Our opera-
tions are becoming more
efficient.”
Spending is up primar-
ily because of escalating
police and firefighting
costs and growing de-
mand for recreational
services, the report says,
not from general govern-
ment overhead.
It also notes federal
and provincial govern-
ments are imposing
higher costs on local
taxpayers – through
more onerous require-
ments to cut greenhouse
gases, improve drinking
water quality and clean
up sewage discharges
– often without enough
accompanying financial
aid.
Port Coquitlam Mayor
Greg Moore, vice-presi-
dent of the UBCM, said
general government
costs have on average
declined over 20 years.
He rejected claims
businesses don’t have
enough say, noting three-
quarters of mayors come
from the private sector.
“There is excellent rep-
resentation from local
business,” he said.
The CFIB argued civic
spending has grown
twice as fast as the popu-
lation and inflation com-
bined.
It wants the province
to force cities to cap busi-
ness tax rates at no more
than twice the rate resi-
dents pay, amounting to
a significant cut in most
cities.
Capping business rates
at that ratio “would lead
to revenue shortfalls in
almost every city, town
and village,” the UBCM
report warns.
CFIB vice-president
Laura Jones said her or-
ganization has never ar-
gued for making up the
difference by raising res-
idential tax rates, adding
cities should instead cut
spending.
“They’re being a little
bit intellectually dishon-
est in the way they’re
positioning the study,”
she said. “I think it’s a
strategy to deflect at-
tention away from the
overspending that’s go-
ing on.”
Jones did not name
specific civic services to
cut.
“I would look at wages
and benefits of staff,”
she said.
Total municipal com-
pensation is 30 per cent
above comparable pay
levels in the private sec-
tor, Jones said, adding
civic wages and benefits
should be frozen until
they get within five per
cent of the private sec-
tor.
The UBCM study warns
councils not to take such
advice seriously, noting
contracts are negotiated
and can’t be arbitrarily
imposed.
It also cautions that
some critics who seek
to cut non-core services
define them as anything
that can be delivered by
private firms.
The report said that
could apply to parts or
all of recreation, transit,
economic development,
arts and culture, hous-
ing, or garbage collec-
tion.

Burrards face Thunder in home opener
The Maple Ridge Bur-
rards are back in action
this Sunday as they kick off
their 2011 Western La-
crosse Associa-
tion season
against the
L a n g l e y
Thunder at
Planet Ice
in Maple
Ridge.
Coach Daren Fridge says
he hopes his team can build
on the strides they took last
season, as the team made
their first postseason ap-
pearance since 2005.
“We have a talented bunch
of young offensive players,
so there’s an opportunity
for us to improve,” he said.
With Curtis Dickson, Joel
Dalgarno, Jarrett Davis,
and Aaron Pascas compli-
menting Burrards veterans
like Pete Tellis, Randy Daly
and Derek Lowe, Fridge
sees much reason to be op-
timistic.
“Four years ago we had
to hope for the planets to
align to beat some of the
bigger teams,” said Fridge.
“Not anymore. We have a
c h a n c e
to win
e v e r y
night.”
T h e
Burrards
e xo r c i s e d
a number of demons
last season. The team man-
aged to beat every one of
its WLA rivals at least once
in the regular season, be-
fore advancing to the play-
offs for the first time since
2005, where they handed
the New Westminster Sal-
monbellies their only WLA
playoff loss.
While Fridge said he
wants to give the home
town fans a win Sunday,
he added that he is putting
less emphasis on a strong
start to this season.
“Having a positive start
to the season is great, but
we are trying to break it
down period by period,”
he said. “We want to make
sure we playing the way
we need to play.”
After a rocky start to the
season last year, the Bur-
rards found themselves
at 6-9 with three games to
play. The team then went
on to beat New Westmin-
ster, Victoria, and Langley
to sneak into the playoffs
with a 9-9 record.
“When our backs were
to the wall, we were able
to get the job done,” said
Fridge.
The goal this year will be
finding success in the play-
offs.
Many on the Burrards
roster have just finished
playing in the National
Lacrosse League. On one
hand that means Fridge
is getting back a handful
of players in game-ready
shape.
On the other hand, many
are still getting recovering
from the bumps and bruis-
es that come with playing
professional lacrosse.
“I don’t want them to
get burned out,” he said.
“They have been playing in
big arenas for thousands of
people all winter, so it can
be an adjustment.
“Sometimes there can be
a bit of a lull,” Fridge con-
tinued. “But knowing the
guys, I know they want to
build on what we did last
season as much as I do.”
With 10 players seeing
time with NLL teams this
year, it’s problem Fridge
hasn’t faced before.
“It’s a great problem to
have,” said Fridge. “I think
it’s a testament to the
amount of skill we have on
this team.”
After a season with
the Colorado Mammoth,
Joel Dalgarno has re-
turned with much more
confidence, said Fridge.
Dickson, meanwhile was
named the NLL’s rookie of
the year.
The pair will make up
the left and right ride of
the Burrards attack, re-
spectively. Backing them
up will be veteran snipers
Daly, Tellis, and Lowe
On the back end, Sam
Cook and Creighton Reid
will be joined by draft pick
Garrett McIntosh, who
will undoubtedly provide
a physical presence to the
Burrards defence.
“He hits fricken hard,”
said Fridge. “He’s a good
shut-down defender, we
think he will fit well.”
Meanwhile Tyler Codron
has fully recovered from
the ACL injury that nagged
him last season.
“He defends really well,
and now that he’s pain
free, we’re hoping he’ll be
with us for many years,
and become one of our fu-
ture leaders,” said Fridge.
In goal, Fridge said 2010
WLA top goaltender Ron
Schibild will return as
starter despite the acquisi-
tion of goalie Chris Seidel
in this year’s draft. Howev-
er, Sunday’s starter will be
a game-time decision.
• The Maple Ridge Bur-
rards face the Langley
Thunder at 6:45 p.m. this
Sunday at Planet Ice in

admission for lax players
Ridge Meadows Minor Lacrosse
Association are hosting a barbecue
Sunday from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the
Albion Fairgrounds ahead of the
senior Burrards homeopener.
The event features a fastest shot
competition, a lacrosse obstacle
course, a dunk-your-coach tank,
and live music.
The senior Burrards will be on
hand to sign autographs, and there
will be free hot dogs, chips and
drinks for all minor lacrosse play-
ers and their families.
The annual event is held in con-
junction the senior Burrards home
opener to celebrate all levels of
lacrosse in Maple Ridge and Pitt
Meadows, said spokesperson Mi-
chelle Bailuk.
After the barbecue, all minor la-
crosse players and coaches get in to
the Burrards game free of charge,
while minor lacrosse parents and
siblings get in by donation to Ridge
Meadows Minor Lacrosse.
“Four years ago we had to hope for the planets
to align to beat some of the bigger teams. Not
anymore. We have a chance to win every night.”

Daren Fridge,
Head coach, Maple Ridge Burrards

TUPPER,
Kenneth
Lester (Ken)
Nov 20, 1922–
May 11, 2011
It is with profound sadness
that we announce the
passing of Ken Tupper,
much loved husband,
father, grandfather and
great-grandfather. Dad
passed away at Ridge
Meadows Hospital with his
family by his side.
Ken is survived by his loving wife Joyce, his six children
Marilyn ( Jim), Susan (Keith), Maureen (Greg), Mark (Heidi),
Scott (Kathy), Brent ( Joanne) and his sister Mabel. He also
leaves to mourn his grandchildren Fiona (Kenny), Erin
(David), Kerri, Adam (Maria), Ashley ( Justin), Miranda,
Stephanie, Christopher (Ashley), Taylor, Cameron, Lindsay,
Sarah and Hayden and his great-grandchildren Charlie,
Talia and Joshua. Dad was pre-deceased by his daughter-in-
law Patti and two grandchildren, Shawn and Danielle.
Ken was born in Star City, Saskatchewan joining the
RCAF in 1941. During the war he was a Æight engineer re-
sponsible for providing escort to the merchant supply ships
departing Canada’s east coast for ports in England.
While still in the service and living in Cold Lake Alberta
with his wife Joyce and six kids, Dad worked part-time doing
vehicle maintenance and repairs. Somehow he found the
time to volunteer more than 1,000 hours at the local theatre
to gain the minimum on the job experience required to earn
his projectionist license, eventually becoming the theatre
manager.
The Tupper’s were the Årst family in Cold Lake to receive
a TV signal. After moving north Dad wasn’t about to miss
“Hockey Night in Canada” so after stacking one antenna
on top of another he was able to pick up a faint signal but
enough to warrant bringing a TV to the remote region.
Dad retired from the Air Force in 1966 with the rank of
Sergeant, heading a crew providing maintenance to military
aircraft. In the fall of 1966 the Tupper’s moved to Maple
Ridge where Ken had the dual responsibility of managing
both Pitt Meadows Golf Club as well as the Maple Ridge
club. It was during these years that he could be seen at the
local arena coaching minor hockey.
Later Dad worked in the penal system at Alouette River
Unit, retiring at the age of 60. He spent the next 5 years
helping two of his son’s, Mark and Brent establish their
Maple Ridge based business, T&T Auto Parts.
Since retiring at the age of 65, Dad could regularly be seen
on one of his many walks around town or at the dikes. He
frequented as many of his grandchildren’s events as was pos-
sible, including birthdays, dance recitals, graduation, foot-
ball and baseball. Dad would often be heard to say; “hit
it just over second”, words of encouragement to one of his
grandchildren or their team mates as they were up to bat.
It was at one of his grandson’s games earlier this year when
Dad had a fall and we discovered his heart was not well.
Those who were lucky enough to know Ken will themselves
know the pride and love Dad had for all his family and their
extended families. For Dad a good day was one that he spent
with his family and friends.
We are all going to miss him!
All who knew Ken are welcome to attend a celebration of
Dad’s life, to be held at Mark and Heidi Tupper’s home on
Monday - May 23, 2011 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
In lieu of Æowers, donations can be made to the Heart and
Stroke Foundation, The Canadian Cancer Society
or BC Children’s Hospital.

who passed away May 21, 2010
Our life goes on without you
But nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartaches
When someone speaks your name
Sad are the tears that love you
Silent are the tears that fall
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all.
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you
The special years will not return
When we were all together
But with love inside our hearts
You will walk with us forever
Loved and sadly missed
