Green space on fast track

,
done by November
by Phil Melnychuk
staff reporter
The green space next to Memori-
al Peace Park will remain that way
for a few years yet, and it will look
better – soon.
Monday, Maple Ridge council
OK’d a plan that calls for better
landscaping and new sidewalks
traversing the vacant lot just north
of the Zellers’ parking lot on 224th
Street.
An unloading area for trucks
during festival events will be pre-
served and enhanced, drainage will
be improved, trees will be planted
along new walkways and there be
a display area marked by paving
stones in the northeast corner.
Better lighting, power outlets and
even water connections will make
the space more usable for festival
events.
The federal and provincial gov-
ernments will pay for most of it,
about $390,000, which represents
what’s left over from infrastructure
grants for the Downtown Enhance-
ment Project dollars.
“We need to do this now,” Coun.
Michael Morden said at council’s
workshop.

Teen apologizes
for role in riot
A Maple Ridge teenager caught
on camera holding a flame to a
shirt stuffed in the gas tank of a po-
lice car has apologized for his role
in last week’s Stanley Cup riot.
One of hundreds of rioters who
rampaged through downtown Van-
couver on Wednesday after the Ca-
nucks lost the Stanley Cup to the
Boston Bruins, Nathan Kotylak, 17,
was first outed online through Fa-
cebook by people who recognized
him.
He chose to waive the protection
afforded to him as a juvenile.
“I wanted to own up to what I did
and encourage other young people
to do the same,” said Kotylak in a
statement released Saturday.
“What I did was dumb. I have
let my family and friends down,
and I will face the consequences
and take responsibility for my ac-
tions.”
A Grade 12 student who just
graduated from Meadowridge
School, Kotylak is a star athlete
who plays on Canada’s junior na-
tional polo team.
He had received a partial schol-
arship to attend the University of
Calgary to study kinesiology and
has hopes of
competing in
the Olympics.
On Friday,
Water Polo Can-
ada announced
it issued a pro-
visional sus-
pension against
an unnamed
member of its
junior men’s
national team
who is facing
allegations of vandalism stemming
from the riot.
Kotylak said he was watching the
Stanley Cup final downtown when
he got swept up in the mayhem
that followed the Canucks 4-0 loss
to the Bruins.

M
aple Ridge and Pitt Mead-
ows residents don’t get as
much exercise compared
to the rest of B.C.
But they eat a bit better, smoke
a bit less and are just a bit trim-
mer than the average person in the
province.
The data comes from a health
practices report from Fraser
Health from 2007-08, one of the
pieces of information that will be
used to motivate those involved in
a Healthier Community plan about
to get underway.
Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows and
Katzie First Nation have been invit-
ed to join with the provincial agen-
cy and make a strategy to get every
body living cleaner – and move the
focus from treating sickness to pre-
venting it in the first place.
“The District of Maple Ridge has
been doing an amazing amount
of work there,” said Jami Brown,
leader for Healthier Communities
with Fraser Health.
In particular, Maple Ridge has
worked on improving food security
and encouraging active living, she
said Wednesday.
Healthier Communities is a part-
nership between the local govern-
ments and the health authority.
Through coordination and commu-
nication about each other’s efforts,
and creating a plan with measur-
able results, it’s hoped to maximize
or improve local living habits.
Fraser Health’s Dr. Larry
Gustafson and executive director
Val Spurrell made a pitch on the
topic to Maple Ridge council Mon-
day.
The program already is under-
way in Surrey and both Langley
city and township.
Brown said trying to encourage
healthy living through policies and
rules isn’t new to Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows.
“What’s new about this is we’re
saying we want to work alongside
you.”
Coordination between local and
provincial agencies could produce
better results.
“For us, it’s about creating really
strong relationships.”
Finding a community-based ap-
proach is the only way to deal with
chronic diseases, she added.
To kick off the project, which
will see the writing of a commu-
nity action plan, council looked at
a snapshot of the local health area,
comprised of Maple Ridge, Pitt
Meadows and Katzie First Nation.
It found that of a total popula-
tion of 95,000, the area had higher
rates of diabetes, asthma, breath-
ing problems, heart disease and
hypertension, compared to the B.C.
average.
Cancer and heart disease cause
more than half (53 per cent) of the
deaths in the area.
Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows’s pop-
ulation also has a smoking rate 18
per cent, while provincewide it’s
only 17 per cent.
But only 53 per cent of residents
are physically active, compared to
58 per cent provincewide.
The percentage of overweight
people in both areas is about the
same, 44 per cent.
Forty-five per cent of people in the
local area say they eat five or more
servings of fruits and veggies while
it’s 43.4 per cent provincewide.
Cities can improve those stats
by passing anti-smoking bylaws,
encouraging walkable communi-
ties as well as ensuring they have
healthy policies for their workers.
A later part of the process in-
volves a scorecard in which Maple
Ridge and Pitt Meadows can be
given percentage marks based on
policies that encourage healthy
food policies, bylaws that restrict
fast food restaurants from open-
ing near schools, and encouraging
people to keep active.
Some of those steps could include
bylaws that keep fast food places or
convenience stores from opening
within 600 metres of a secondary
or middle school.
“We’re just saying there’s an
amazing opportunity to kind of put
some pieces together.”
She agreed that kids today, stuck
indoors on video and TV screens,
may not live as long as their par-
ents because of the unhealthy liv-
ing habits.
“A lot of people have been scream-
ing for years, healthy communities
come through design,” said Coun.
Craig Speirs.
He said it’s known that heavily
urbanized communities produce
kids who are less obese than their
suburban counterparts.
Ways to live healthier and cleaner
Open main street to people, close it to cars, and
get people walking more.
It works elsewhere so why not in Maple Ridge?
asked Coun. Linda King at Monday’s meeting.
“It will take a lot of courage to do that but …
our ultimate goal should be to convert the
street to a pedestrian-oriented community.
“Everywhere it’s been done in the world, it’s
been very successful and I don’t see why we
can’t do that in Maple Ridge.
“We’ve done a lot of good work here but the
car still rules here. Most of our children are still
driven to school.”
But whether we like it or not, we still have an
auto-oriented community, said Coun. Judy
Dueck. People still need their cars to get to
work, mostly outside of Maple Ridge, she
added.
“It’s fun to walk but it’s not fun to walk with 12
bags of groceries,”added Coun. Cheryl Ashlie,
saying people have to be realistic.
King said later that research has shown that
making some streets pedestrian only boosts
sales in stores along that street.
The idea may be too much too soon for
businesses along 224th Street, said Ineke
Boekhorst, executive-director with the Down-
town Maple Ridge Business Improvement
Association.
“I think it would be fantastic for the future.
At this time, there would be quite a bit of
opposition.
“We are just not there yet.”
It’s even dif cult for festival organizers to close
224th Street briefy between Lougheed High-
way and Dewdney Trunk Road for their events.
“Our society is just too much chained to the car
still. It’s just too hard to close down the core to
traf c.”She would support a survey on the idea
though, if council wanted to pursue it.
King said more specifc ideas may come from
the social planning advisory committee or the
parks and rec commission which will comment
on the healthier community plan.

Improvements to downtown Maple Ridge had active living in mind. Closing 224th Street to cars could further that.

Park from front
“This is amazing, speedy
work,” added Coun. Linda
King.
Following a May 16 open
house, during which 80
per cent of those attending
wanted the land kept as park
and family space, council
told staff to come up with a
design to improve it for park
use.
With that in place, council
approved issuing tenders for
the project so work can start
in August, after the summer
festivals, and be done by Oct.
31, the completion deadline
for qualifying for senior gov-
ernment money.
Coun. Cheryl Ashlie want-
ed to know if the plans would
interfere with any future
uses for the property.
What’s being proposed is a
stand-alone design, said chief
administrator Jim Rule.
Staff later can later develop
other ideas for the spot.
“From our perspective,
there’s lots of flexibility
down the road,” Rule added.
Ashlie suggested a water
fountain be included to en-
courage people to drink tap
water rather than bottled
water.
With the senior govern-
ments paying most of the tab
for infrastructure replace-
ment, the district only will
have to pay $70,000 to pay
for drainage, irrigation and
seeding of the area.
The lot is what remains of
the district’s ill-fated town
core development program
in the 1990s, and where a ho-
tel was supposed to be built.
King was leery of a pro-
posed location for a giant
Christmas tree, in the north
corner next to 224th Street.
She suggested waiting a year
before locating that.
Coun. Craig Speirs liked
the idea of a kids’ spray park
near the leisure centre and
didn’t want to see any other
use of the site other than for
park.
Coun. Al Hogarth said
eventually the park could
still see other community
uses, such as a possible site
for a new Maple Ridge Mu-
seum, as proposed by the
Maple Ridge Historical So-
ciety.
“I think this gives us time
to see this unfold in a ratio-
nale way.”

Pitt Meadows bylaws was at it
again last week, removing a more
“Vote Yes: Extinguish the HST
signs” – this time from what people
thought was their own property.
But according to bylaws officer
Lesley Elchuk, the four or five
signs she took down were actually
on the city’s boulevard, the strip
of land between the roadside curb
and the front property line, which
includes land on both sides of a
sidewalk.
That distance varies but often
can extend 4.8 metres from road-
side to property line. So if someone
put a sign on the edge of what they
thought was their lawn, it could be
on municipal property.
Pitt Meadows’ sign bylaw bans
political or election signs from
roadsides, medians, parks and
bridges, though they’re OK on
some municipal properties and
private lots.
Elchuk said she was directed to
remove the signs by senior staff
following council’s discussion of
the bylaw last Tuesday.
“That came from council the
night before.
“My direction was, if there are
signs [on roadsides or city prop-
erty], they should be picked up
in order to be consistent with the
week prior.
“We didn’t remove any from pri-
vate property,” she said.
City crews previously took down
38 Vote Yes: Extinguish the HST
signs that FightHST volunteer
Corisa Bell put up along roadsides,
after receiving one complaint.
Because bylaws require a com-
plaint in order to be enforced, the
city only acted after the complaint
was filed.
FightHST organizers had to go
door to door to ask residents if
they’d like to have a sign outside
their property.
Bell says the city could have
asked homeowners to move the
signs instead of just taking them.
She said she’d continue to knock
on doors to ask residents to allow
Vote HST signs to be put up.
“I’ll even bring a measuring tape
and take a picture,” to show the
sign is within a private lot, she
added.
From now though, Elchuk said
she’ll contact homeowners and
ask them to move signs on to their
property, if she sees any that are
on city boulevards.
B.C. is in the middle of a mail-in
vote on the Harmonized Sales Tax
and people have until July 22 to
mail in their ballot.
Pitt Meadows city last week re-
fused to let Bell speak to council.
Mayor Don MacLean said council
didn’t want to hear from either
side on the issue.
Election, political or HST signs
are exempt under Maple Ridge’s
sign bylaw.
City still scooping up anti-HST signs
THE NEWS/files
Pitt Meadows bans political or elec-
tion signs from municipal property.
A city staffer is taking the blame
for failing to inform Pitt Meadows’
mayor he had to publicly reveal
that his business had won a con-
tract to insure the city’s vehicle
fleet.
Director of corporate services
Laurie Darcus said she was un-
aware of the section in the B.C.
Community Charter that requires
council members to disclose any
contracts they enter into with the
city “as soon as reasonably practi-
cable at a council meeting that is
open to the public.”
Section 168 also requires any
contracts with council members to
be listed in a report, that includes
a general description of their na-
ture, at least once a year.
“In this particular case, it was
my error,” said Darcus.
“It is completely my fault. I
should have reported that and un-
fortunately I didn’t.”
Mayor Don MacLean’s business
– Sharpe’s Agency Ltd. – won the
latest contract to insure 32 mu-
nicipal vehicles, including pickup
trucks, backhoes, bobcats and fire
engines, in 2009. Since the contract
totalled more than $25,000, this
year is the first time the mayor’s
business had to be identified in a
city financial statement – to the
surprise of several councillors,
who claim they were unaware of
the agreement.
The current contract with
Sharpe’s Insurance, for $26,730,
expires in 2012.
In 2009, the city decided to for-
malize the way it obtains insur-
ance by inviting proposals, instead
of sticking by a previous agree-
ment, which alternated between
Sharpe’s and Johnston Meier In-
surance.
Three agencies responded to
the request for proposals, includ-
ing Sharpe’s, Johnston Meier and
Meier & Company Insurance.
A staff committee picked the
best bidder according to set crite-
ria that included experience, the
availability of on-site service, a
willingness to provide short-term
credit and a familiarity with the
city’s vehicle fleet.
Darcus said the city will be tak-
ing no further action at present
since the contract was discussed
at a public committee meeting last
week.
MacLean, too, was unaware of
the charter disclosure rule, but be-
lieves he did not violate it.
“Corporate services would have
advised me of it, if that had been
the case,” he said.
“I understand the issue of trans-
parency, but I would suspect all of
council knows I [insure] the fleet. I
talk about it at council during bud-
get time. I know I have mentioned
it. I have no problem with it being
disclosed. This is not a big issue.”
A person who contravenes the
charter is disqualified from hold-
ing an office until the next civic
election, unless the contraven-
tion was done inadvertently or
because of an error in judgement
made in good faith.
MacLean, who has been mayor
for the past 12 years, will not be
seeking re-election in November.
He was elected to council in
1990.

The springtime of
discontent over rec-
reational vehicles and
where people can and
cannot park them can
be traced to a single
complainant.
Actually, more than
100 of them, in the last
few months, according
to public works gen-
eral manager Frank
Quinn.
“There was one in
particular that did a
significant amount
of complaints,” more
than 100, he said last
week.
“The majority of
how this got to where
it is was a significant
amount of complaints
from one guy or girl.”
That in turn sparked
more complaints from
neighbours unhappy
with a visit from the
bylaws officer, who in
turn made their own
complaints against
others. Maple Ridge’s
bylaw administration
is based on complaints.
Other than downtown,
the district doesn’t
proactively enforce its
bylaws.
The controversy is
the reason why Ma-
ple Ridge told staff
to look at the entire
topic with staff return-
ing with proposals to
streamline the bylaw
complaint process by
limiting the complaint
radius to 100 metres
and allowing no more
than three complaints
per person per year.
“When you have
no policy on it, your
domino effect can take
place,” Quinn said.
“So that’s exactly
what took place. There
was no proactive en-
forcement on RVs, it
was all generated on a
complaint basis.”
One of the goals ex-
pressed at council is to
make any new bylaw
as clear and unam-
biguous as possible in
order to remove the
discretion and deci-
sion making from by-
law officers and make
their jobs easier.
That’s welcomed by
staff, Quinn said.
“We feel there needs
to be less ambiguity
and more transparen-
cy out there to make
this work.”
The resulting visits
by bylaw officers to
homes about RVs that
had been parked in one
spot for years sparked
discontent, letters to
the editor and the cre-
ation of a Facebook
group as neighbours
pushed back and told
the district to back off.
In preparing the
report, bylaws staff
looked at eight neigh-
bouring cities. But
Quinn noted that some
people have called the
district asking them to
keep the bylaw in place
exactly the way it is,
limiting the length of
RVs stored in the sub-
urbs to 7.5 metres.
Staff point out that
no residents have been
ticketed for improp-
erly storing an RV or
for keeping one larger
than 7.5 metres.
Council ordered
suspension of any re-
moval orders for RVs
until a new bylaw is in
place.

THE NEWS/opinion
VICTORIA – Let’s
assume that when ev-
eryone in B.C. gets to
be finance minister
for a day, a major-
ity choose to throw
a $3-billion chair
through the office
window to show how
mad they are about
the harmonized sales
tax.
The cleanup will
take two years, but
first there will be a
provincial election
to decide who holds the broom and
dustpan. And the choices are becoming
clear.
You have a new B.C. Liberal leader,
who has tacked to the centre on the
minimum wage and business taxes in an
effort to seek forgiveness for the high-
handed administration that lost the
public’s trust.
And you have two opposition parties
that are entirely reactionary in their ap-
proach to today’s fast-changing world.
There isn’t much to say at this point
about the B.C. Conservatives under
John Cummins. They are against
modern treaty settlements, the carbon
tax and (I think) the HST. They stand
for lower taxes, but so far that doesn’t
include a reduced sales tax rate.
The rest of their platform is platitudes,
with enough of a whiff of protest to pave
a path for an NDP government.
And the NDP manages to make the
B.C. Conservatives look modern.
In January, I described how the B.C.
NDP constitution still formally endorses
the government taking over major
industries, and explicitly rejects all for-
profit activity. I won’t re-quote the con-
voluted Marxist language, which boils
down to ‘state good, competition bad.’
A reader provides a real-time example
of how this principle would apply to
a problem confronting the B.C. gov-
ernment. To prevent another riot in
Vancouver, the government should
supervise an orderly redistribution of
Stanley Cups.
This core principle of socialism, an
80-year-old relic, was debated at the na-
tional party’s convention in Vancouver
on the weekend. Socialist dead-enders
rallied to keep it alive, rejecting vague
new wording that favours “social demo-
cratic principles” to ensure “economic
and social equality.”
This isn’t just an academic discussion
for party conventions. One of the last
acts of the NDP opposition in the B.C.
legislature this spring was to propose a
legislated end to poverty.
According to their bill, B.C. should
create a Ministry of Poverty Reduction
with annual goals for imposing the
redistribution of wealth.
The “Poverty Reduction Act” contains
a weasel-worded definition of poverty:
insufficient money to “acquire and
maintain economic self-reliance” and
“facilitate integration into and partici-
pation in society.”
Does this mean a guaranteed annual
income? Can people achieve “economic
self-reliance” by collecting welfare?
Does anyone actually believe this stuff?
If you believe unionized state monopo-
lies are the best business model, I guess
so.
I won’t elaborate on the fringe parties
such as Chris Delaney’s B.C. First, a
splinter from the B.C. Conservative
stump.
The Green Party is the only one
other than the B.C. Liberals that looks
to the future. Perhaps too far in the
future. The Greens want a dramatically
increased carbon tax and a transition to
a “steady state” economy that doesn’t
try to produce and consume more. Try
eliminating poverty with that program.
I frequently get letters from people
who accuse me of parroting the govern-
ment’s line on issues such as the HST
and poverty. If there are political alter-
natives out there that make actual sense
in today’s world, I’d love to hear about
them. Until then, these are the choices.
Any day now, NDP leader Adrian Dix
might start to unveil the positive alterna-
tive he has promised for an election that
may come this fall. That will be some-
thing to examine closely.
Right now, he’s urging you to throw
that chair.

This week’s question: Is Pitt Meadows being heavy handed by taking down HST signs?
B.C. Views
Tom Fletcher
Nathan Kotylak was caught on camera holding a
flame to a shirt stuffed in the gas tank of a Vancou-
ver police car.
Another online image shows him crouched with
an open, extended hand next to a fire in a plastic
garbage can.
On Friday, he turned himself into police and
made a public apology for his actions during the
Stanley Cup riot last week.
He is 17 years old, but waived the protection af-
forded to him under the Canadian Youth Criminal
Justice Act.
He’s also a member of the Canadian water polo
junior development program, a Meadowridge
School graduate who received a partial scholar-
ship to the University of Calgary, and the son of a
Maple Ridge surgeon and nurse.
All of the above made him the target of those
seeking retribution, mostly through social me-
dia groups and blogs; he has been relentlessly
ridiculed; some posted his cell phone number and
home address online. The Kotylak family, fearing
their safety, has fled the home, for now.
For some, that is justice. Others, like those on Fa-
cebook who want him banned from ever compet-
ing in the Olympics, want more – like jail time.
We’ve gone from mob violence to mob justice,
egged on by the VPD, Premier Christy Clark and
media to assist in identifying those who took part.
Identifying someone to police is one thing, mak-
ing threats is another, as is publishing comments
on a public forum about the alleged guilt of a mi-
nor, of anyone.
Innocent or not, laws exist in this country to pro-
tect those who may not be mature enough to know
better, and to ensure a fair trial for all.
That seems forgotten in the case of Nathan Koty-
lak, in the age of the internet.
It is for a judge or jury to decide his fate, not just
anyone staring at a picture or watching a video
clip, or reporting on such an incident.
Kotylak has already been suspended from the
junior national water polo team, and missed his
graduation ceremony. The infamous pictures of
him will forever be attached to the riot.
No doubt those who took part in the violence
and mayhem should be held accountable.
But virtual vigilantism only perpetuates the
ugliness that fueled the riot.

EDITOR, THE NEWS:
Re: Outraged fans aim to
ID Stanley Cup rioters (The
News, June 17)
Although I was horrified
by the events that followed
the final Stanley Cup hock-
ey game in Vancouver,
I wasn’t as surprised as
some people were by the
mindless destruction and
violence.
Like most others, I am
hoping the perpetrators
are caught and appropriate
consequences are applied.
But I also ask myself if
we can avoid similar situa-
tions from occurring in the
future.
Most young people do not
have the hope for a bright
future that my classmates
and I had when we gradu-
ated in 1975. Today’s youth
are faced with a number of
seemingly intractable is-
sues such as government
debt, environmental deg-
radation, unemployment
and climate change.
In 1975, taking any of the
plentiful full-time, mini-
mum wage jobs available
allowed you to move out
of your parents’ home and
borrow money for a car.
These days, minimum
wage jobs are a guarantee
of poverty.
Some kids adapt by shar-
ing apartments, others live
with their parents for years
and years and still others
work two or three jobs, at
the same time hoping to
save up for something im-
portant to them.
Today, the giant steel
mills in my home town of
Hamilton run with a frac-
tion of the previous work
force, when they run at
all. The latest in a series
of foreign owners of Stelco
is trying to roll back my
father’s pension entitle-
ments – just like all the
others did. Hard to imagine
they will be generous with
new employees, who would
probably be lucky to get
any sort of pension at all.
A common thread be-
tween the three service sec-
tor strikes we are watching
right now – Extra Foods,
Canada Post and Air Can-
ada – is that the employer
wants to lower the starting
wage and change the con-
tract for recent hires. Job
security, defined pensions
and decent benefits will
only exist for older work-
ers if the employers get
their way.
Whereas good citizen-
ship (ie. caring for others)
was inculcated in many of
my generation, individual-
ism, with its dog-eat-dog
mentality, seems to reign
supreme at the moment.
When my daughter was
at the G20 Summit protest-
ing for causes she believed
in, she was shot down, im-
prisoned and handed a bo-
gus criminal charge.
Many people applauded
the police for their work.
Those trying to express
their views are seen as
troublemakers, not en-
gaged citizens attempting
to participate in this so-
called democracy.
As if this weren’t bad
enough, all three levels
of government involved
in this fiasco have looked
the other way rather than
launch a proper inquiry.
How sad is that?
If I were graduating to-
day, there’s a good chance
that I would be living with
frustration and anger rath-
er than hope.
Would I participate in
overturning a Hummer to
blow off some steam if the
opportunity presented it-
self?
Although I would hope
not, I can’t completely rule
it out.
Older people would do
well to put themselves in
the shoes of these young
people and look at the
world through their eyes.
Once we’ve done that, we
need to get to work solving
some of the problems so
that we can give hope back
to our youth.

Re: Maple Ridge teen
apologizes for role in Stan-
ley Cup riot (mapleridge-
news.com).
I would like to speak out
about all the negative at-
tention the Kotylaks are
experiencing since their
son turned himself in to
police for his part in the ri-
oting in Vancouver.
They’ve now taken the
extreme steps of moving
out of their home tempo-
rarily.
I know this family, not
very well, but we’ve crossed
paths over the years in this
community. Their kids
have played in sports along
with my kids.
The Kotylaks are an all-
round stellar family, the
kind you’d love to have
for neighbours. Educated
and involved in their com-
munity, I’m happy to have
had them cross my path,
and I’m sure their son (and
his siblings) will go on to
lead productive lives that
will continue to benefit the
community as a whole.
Their son admitted to
engaging in some bad be-
haviour, he owned up, he
apologized, he’s feeling the
shame, I’m sure. But let’s
not destroy this youth for
one bad act. This one eve-
ning does not demonstrate
what he’s all about. I, for
one, am more than ready
to believe that he’s sorry,
that he knows he’s done a
wrong thing and that he’ll
surely never do anything
so stupid again.
I wish the Kotylaks well,
and I want the family to
know that I will stand with
them shoulder to shoulder,
as they move past this one
event.
Maple Ridge is a good
family community, and the
Kotylaks are a good family.
I’m happy to have them as
part of my neighbourhood.
I know that at 17, I made
some poor choices. Closed
circuit TV and cell phones
were not around then to
capture every waking mo-
ment.
So, Nathan, move on kid,
you’re still the good kid
you were before this one
event.

Re: Pitt Meadows takes down anti-HST signs (The News,
June 15).
I am a Pitt Meadows resident and I’m wondering what
the reason was for the removal of the anti-HST signs in
Pitt Meadows.
During elections there are lots of political signs erected
along boulevards, medians, roadsides; how is the anti-
HST signage different?
When the signs were removed did the city tell Corisa
Bell where she could place them; a simple courtesy. Sure-
ly there must be an approved location?
Kindly consider this my complaint against the person
who complained that the signs should come down.
I’d like to see the city extend a courtesy to Ms. Bell and
advise her where she can place the signs and I’d like to
see them back up so that my right to be informed and
make a choice is represented along with those taking the
opposing view.

Re: Bear killed in Maple Ridge Park (The News, June 15).
I was quite outraged about the young bear killed by con-
servation officers in Maple Ridge Park.
The officers made it very clear that the open garbage
cans in Maple Ridge Park attracted the injured bear.
This seems crazy and antiquated to me that a park in
Maple Ridge, near wildlife areas, is not equipped with bear-
proof garbage cans.
This is 2011, and surely everyone, especially those mu-
nicipal officials whose job it is to know these things, is
aware that bears are attracted to garbage, and a ‘fed bear
is a dead bear.’
Provincial parks and Metro Vancouver parks have bear-
proof garbage cans. Surely a tiny portion of the hefty taxes
I and many others pay as a Maple Ridge homeowner could
go to installing a few of these bear-proof cans in Maple
Ridge Park. I mean, isn’t that why we pay taxes, for the pro-
vision of services and improvement of our area?
And, while these municipal officials are at it, whey don’t
they pass a Bear Aware bylaw in Maple Ridge, for good-
ness’ sake? They don’t even have to reinvent the wheel –
they just need to copy it from all the other more progres-
sive municipalities around B.C. that already have such a
bylaw.

A six-storey building is
about to fill in a lot that’s
been empty for most of the
life of downtown and it’s ex-
pected to be key to the ap-
pearance of Maple Ridge’s
centre.
After just putting up a
new building on Lougheed
Highway to the east, Wayne
Bissky Architecture and
Urban Designs are now pro-
posing a six-storey build-
ing for the lot next door, at
223rd Street and Lougheed
Highway.
“This is going to be a sig-
nificant development in our
downtown,” environmental
services manager Chuck
Goddard told council’s com-
mittee meeting Monday.
Bissky wants to build
five storeys of wood atop a
base floor of concrete with
commercial and residential
space.
Council only has to agree
to changing the setbacks
required in the area so the
building can be located next
to the sidewalk, as are other
buildings along Lougheed.
The location is considered
an entry way to the down-
town area, which the Dis-
trict of Maple Ridge is try-
ing to develop and densify
in an eco-friendly way.
“I think our downtown
plan, we’re starting to see
it come to fruition,” pub-
lic works general manager
Frank Quinn said Friday.
“We look at that lot as a
prime entrance to down-
town.”
The application comple-
ments plans to renovate
the south exterior of
Haney Place Mall and all of
Zeller’s, as Target, of Min-
neapolis, Minn., takes over
the Canadian retailer.
Thrifty Foods in the
meantime is about to start
refitting the old Safeway in
the east end of the mall, re-
cently home to Haney Mar-
ketplace and Antique Mall.
The mall’s redevelopment
also revived construction
plans for two new residen-
tial buildings across the
road, with a total of 96-con-
dos.
As well, the owner of lots
at McIntosh Avenue on the
east side of 224th Street has
also revised previous plans
for a new building there.
Work also starts this sum-
mer on extending 227th
Street south from Lougheed
Highway to connect with
Haney Bypass.
That project is part of the
construction of a new com-
munity gaming centre in
that location by 2013.

A six-storey building, with ground floor commercial, is being proposed.

staff reporter
Work has been un-
derway for a few
months already, but
Friday the VIPs gave
their official blessing
to the 45-unit Alou-
ette Heights building
on Brown Avenue and
222nd Street.
The green building
will provide homes
for people recovering
from mental illness or
drug or booze addic-
tion and will be staffed
all day, all week.
B.C. Housing kicked
in $8 million for the
project and will pay
$335,000 yearly to keep
it operating.
“Safe, supportive
housing for the home-
less will be a vital
addition to Maple
Ridge,” Liberal MLA
Marc Dalton said at
the opening.
“These apartments
will offer safe, afford-
able housing where
people are accepted,
understood and con-
nected to the supports
they need to regain
their independence
and overcome their
personal challenges.”
The building, which
opens a year from now,
will use geothermal
energy to preheat the
domestic water supply
and prevent having to
use natural gas.
Shades will keep
the summer sun from
hitting the energy-
efficient windows –
further keeping the
building cool in the
summer.
Combined with walls
insulated to a value of
R-23, the new building
won’t need air condi-
tioning.
In Maple Ridge, the
government will spend
more than $5 million
this year to provide
subsidized housing
and rent supplements
for more than
1,050 low-income in-
dividuals, seniors and
families.

Locked-out postal workers, up-
set with the Conservative govern-
ment’s plan to send them back to
work, occupied MP Randy Kamp’s
Maple Ridge office Tuesday, re-
fusing to leave until he vows to
vote against the proposed legisla-
tion.
Kamp was not at the office, how-
ever, but rather in Ottawa. Still,
the protestors hope their message
reaches him: Let us bargain with
Canada Post.
“We have no say,” said Cindy
McDonnell, president of the Ca-
nadian Union of Postal Workers
Local 704. “This is draconian leg-
islation ... and it undermines the
entire bargaining process.”
More than two dozen postal
workers gathered in front of
Kamp’s offices Tuesday morn-
ing. At around noon, three union
members entered Kamp’s office
and refused to leave.
Postal workers in North Van-
couver, Edmonton and Winnipeg
occupied the offices of Conserva-
tive MPs on Monday.
“I imagine they will be here un-
til the police come and take them
away,” said Ed Nicholles, CUPW’s
Pacific Region representative, of
the three postal workers occupy-
ing Kamp’s office.
Kamp, reached on the phone
from Ottawa, said they had no
plans to call the police, yet.
“They are being respectful of
the work that needs to be done in
the office and aren’t being disrup-
tive from what I understand,” he
said.
Kamp said he is holding out
hope that a settlement can be
reached before the back-to-work
bill is voted on. Last week, striking
workers at Air Canada reached
an agreement with the airline af-
ter the Conservatives proposed
back-to-work legislation.
Kamp said if the two sides have
not come to an agreement by
Thursday, he will vote with his
fellow Conservative MPs in favour
of the bill.
“For us, this about the economy,”
he said. “We received a strong
mandate from Canadians to im-
prove the economy, and a work
stoppage could be damaging.”
The proposed legislation, which
was tabled by Conservative labour
minister Lisa Raitt in the House of
Commons on Monday, could see
the postal workers forced back
to work as early as Thursday. It
would also force the union into
binding arbitration with Canada
Post. However, CUPW will have
no say on who the government
will appoint as arbitrator.
“We never got a chance in this
round of bargaining,” said CUPW
national president Denis Lemelin.
“The Harper government is going
to rescue [Canada Post] from any
responsibility to negotiate realis-
tically with the workers.”
Canada Post Chief Executive
Officer Deepak Chopra met with
Lemelin last week, but the meet-
ing failed to bring the two sides
any closer. Canada Post contends
the union has too many demands
that would drive up costs and
restrict Canada Post’s ability to
address problems like declining
mail volumes, and a $3.2-billion
deficit in the pension plan.
The 48,000 members of the Ca-
nadian Union of Postal Workers,
which include local letter carriers
and retail employees, have been
without a contract since May 30,
after the union rejected Canada
Post’s contract offer. That offer
would have seen the creation of
a two-tier wage scale, reducing
starting wages to $18 from close to
$23 an hour. The Crown corpora-
tion locked out workers last week
in an effort to force the union to
accept the contract offer.

“At that moment, I made some
very bad decisions, ones that I
now have to live up to,” he add-
ed.
Kotylak decided he would not
attend his high school convoca-
tion on Thursday because he
did not want his notoriety to
overshadow the ceremony.
“I’m not looking for any sym-
pathy, I just want to make sure
that people know that there
have already been serious con-
sequences, and I anticipate
there will be more,” said Koty-
lak, who has yet to be formally
charged.
“What happened on Wednes-
day night took the spotlight
away from the Canucks and the
Boston Bruins. They are cham-
pions and worked very hard
to get to that moment. I am so
sorry that I was part of ruining
that night.”
Like other rioters identified
online, Kotylak was viciously at-
tacked and threatened online in
a now-defunct Facebook group
called “Nathan Kotylak go to
Jail, Do not Pass Go” and on the
blog publicshamingeternus.
His cell phone number and
home address were posted on
the websites.
Kotylak’s lawyer, Bart Find-
lay, said the threats have forced
the family to leave their Maple
Ridge home. Kotylak’s father
Greg, a surgeon at Ridge Mead-
ows Hospital, had to close his
office as well.
“The mod mentality that per-
vaded the riots is happening
through social media,” said
Findlay.
“It’s crazy.”
Len Peters, an administrator
for the Facebook group, said he
started the page about Kotylak
because the boy needed a “good
public shaming.”
He added the Facebook group
collected other photographs
of Kotylak that have been for-
warded to Vancouver police.
To date, 12 people have turned
themselves in to Vancouver Po-
lice and three others to police in
outside jurisdictions.
A total of 117 people were ar-
rested for a variety of offences
following the riot, including
breach of the peace, public in-
toxication, breach of probation,
assault, mischief, theft, posses-
sion of stolen property and ob-
structing a peace officer.
Many charges are pending,
however, formal charges have
been recommended against
eight people including Kotylak.
Another 20-year-old man from
Maple Ridge with no previous
criminal convictions is facing
charges of mischief and partici-
pating in a riot after allegedly
breaking a window of the Bank
of Montreal located at Homer
and West Georgia.
‘Not looking for sympathy’
Facebook
Nathan Kotylak turned himself in after this image surfaced of him holding
a flame to a shirt stuffed in the gas tank of a Vancouver police car.

The federal govern-
ment is looking to
tighten rules on medi-
cal marijuana so only
licensed, private op-
erators are allowed to
grow it.
The proposed chang-
es would create a new
network of commer-
cial-scale growers and
phase out home-based
grow operations.
“Our government is
very concerned that
the current Marijuana
Medical Access Pro-
gram is open to abuse
and exploitation by
criminal elements,”
said Minister of Health
Leona Aglukkaq on
Friday.
“That is why we are
proposing improve-
ments to the program
that will reduce the
risk of abuse and keep
our children and com-
munities safe, while
significantly improv-
ing the way program
participants access
marihuana for medical
purposes.”
Health Canada has
already begun public
consultations about
the proposed changes
that would streamline
the application pro-
cess for access to med-
ical marijuana and see
commercial produc-
ers licensed by Health
Canada to grow and
distribute dried mari-
juana.
Individuals would
purchase their supply
of dried marihuana
from one of the li-
censed commercial
producers.
The changes to phase
out home-based op-
erations couldn’t come
quicker for the City of
Pitt Meadows.
A lone medical mari-
juana growop located
in a quiet residential
neighbourhood contin-
ues to frustrate city of-
ficials who have been
unable to get the grow-
er to relocate because
of crop’s legal status.
One of several coun-
cillors who’ve been
fielding complaints
about the property,
Gwen O’Connell has
been telling neigh-
bours the city is doing
all it can.
“Our hands are tied,”
said O’Connell.
“The federal govern-
ment completely takes
it out of your hands.
I feel so bad for that
neighbourhood.”
Pitt Meadows has
a bylaw that prohib-
its growing medical
marijuana for others,
but has been unable to
outlaw growing it for
personal use.
But the city has been
keeping a close eye on
the lone legal growop
and often requests to
inspect the property to
make sure the grower
is complying with his
Health Canada license
for 46 plants.
Bylaws officer Leslie
Elchuk said it’s the
only legal grow op she
knows about in a resi-
dential neighbourhood
in Pitt Meadows.
“As long as every-
thing is inspected and
it’s safe, there is noth-
ing we can do.”
Comments about
proposed changes to
the medical marijuana
program can be sub-
mitted to Health Cana-
da online until July 31.

B.C. Hydro will meet
with the public Mon-
day night to discuss its
proposed $800-million
restoration of the ag-
ing Ruskin Dam, and
potential impacts to the
environment and to the
communities of Ruskin
and Silverdale the six-
year construction proj-
ect may pose.
Jane Newlands, B.C.
Hydro’s community re-
lations manager for the
project, said she hopes
to answer any ques-
tions the public might
have about the project.
It is currently under
review by the B.C. Utili-
ties Commission, which
is expected to make its
ruling by the end of the
year.
Should the project
be approved, New-
lands said construction
would likely begin in
early 2012 and continue
until 2018.
Traffic in the area will
be affected as Hayward
Street, which runs over
top of the dam, will be
closed for the duration
of the project.
Wilson Street will
also be reduced to
single-lane alternating
traffic.
There will also be a
number disruptions to
the recreational area
south of the dam.
The Ruskin Recre-
ation Site south of the
dam will be closed dur-
ing construction, as
will the parking lot off
Wilson Street.
No swimming or boat-
ing will be permitted on
Hayward Lake during
the summer months of
2012 and 2013 due to a
scheduled drop in the
water level to allow for
construction.
Portions of the Reser-
voir Trail will also be
closed.
Work on the dam
will take place in four
stages. The first stage
will see the western
bank of the dam rein-
forced and fitted with a
waterproof membrane.
The second stage will
see the dam’s spillway
gates replaced and the
one-way road that runs
over top of the dam
widen to accommodate
two vehicle lanes and a
pedestrian lane.
The third stage of the
project will focus on the
powerhouse, which un-
dergo seismic upgrades
and a full restoration,
and will have its three
generators replaced.
The fourth and final
stage will see the elec-
trical substation cur-
rently located on the
roof of the powerhouse
relocated to an area
near the eastern bank
of the dam.

If approved, project

Police are recommend-
ing a charge of assault
with a weapon against
a Maple Ridge man who
meted out vigilante jus-
tice to a trio of teenag-
ers on Saturday.
Ridge Meadows
RCMP said the 36-year-
old suspected the boys
of damaging his vehicle
around 10 p.m. on Mc-
Clure Drive in Maple
Ridge. He decided to
chased the youths while
brandishing a baseball
bat.
Cpl. Alanna Dunlop
said one of the teens fell
while trying to run away
and the suspect grabbed
and threatened him.
The teen was checked
by members of the B.C.
Ambulance Service.
The man was arrested,
but later released from
police custody on condi-
tion he has no contact
with the teens.
Pot bust
More than 1,000
marijuana plants were

tions.
Police executed a war-
rant at the property on
224th Street around 8
a.m.
Officers found 1,251
marijuana plants

when RCMP served the
warrant.

Silverdale Community Centre
8760 McLean Street, Mission
Since the 1930s, the Ruskin Dam and Generating Station has provided a clean and reliable supply
of electricity to homes and businesses in BC. After more than 80 years of service, the facility is
in need of an upgrade. BC Hydro is planning a major investment to the Ruskin facility to improve
seismic performance and replace the original powerhouse equipment which is in poor condition
and becoming increasingly unreliable.
Project construction is expected to take approximately six years and run from 2012 to 2018.
BC Hydro is preparing Environmental and Construction Management Plans for the project and
would like your input. Please join us for the community information session on June 27th from
7 p.m. to 9 p.m. or contact us at LMSC.communityrelations@bchydro.com or call 1 800 663 1377
to arrange a presentation for your group. Additional information sessions will be held in the fall to
finalize the plans.
More information on the project and a copy of the draft Environmental Management Plan is
available on line at bchydro.com/ruskin.
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.

S
oon, if the power
goes out, volun-
teers at the Alou-
ette River Management
Society won’t have to
worry so much.
Thanks to a grant from
the Pacific Salmon Foun-
dation, the Allco Fish
Hatchery will have a
new generator installed,
with the help of inmates
from Fraser Regional
Correctional Centre.
The inmates will help
rebuild a room for the
donated generator.
That will ensure the
pumps keep running and
the water keeps flow-
ing and the fish they’re
rearing stay alive until
they’re released into the
Alouette River.
The hatchery is staffed
daily by 12 prisoners
from the nearby jail on
256th Street. Over the
past quarter century,
the hatchery has raised
33 million fish for re-
lease into the Alouette
and other streams.
“A new generator will
be much more reliable,”
said Amanda Crowston,
executive-director with
ARMS.
The Pacific Salmon
Foundation also provid-
ed funding, for a total
of $27,023, for a portable
set that’s used to dem-
onstrate how pollution
and water move across
a landscape.
Volunteers are the un-
sung heroes of Pacific
salmon sustainability,”
Pacific Salmon Foun-
dation president Brian
Riddell said in a news
release.
“Their impact on the
environment can be
seen throughout the
province, from salmon
hatcheries and steward-
ship centers to strategi-
cally placed rocks, trees
and vegetation that
protect salmon-bearing
streams. These are all
the result of dedicated
volunteers working
thousands of hours to
ensure a strong future
for Pacific salmon.”
The grants are made
possible in part as a
result of money raised
at the annual Pacific
Salmon Foundation
Vancouver gala dinner
and auction.
The river society is
also being helped by a
$5,000-grant from Royal
Bank of Canada’s Blue
Water Project so it can
offer its watershed edu-
cation tours in Maple
Ridge and Pitt Meadows
schools.
That’s a new, class-
room version of an all-
day field trip to Rivers
Heritage Centre, a tour
of the Allco Fish Hatch-
ery nearby, a forest na-
ture walk, watershed
and pollution demon-
stration and studying
water insects.
ARMS said that with
increased budget cut-
backs to schools, there
are fewer opportunities
for field trips to encour-
age and inspire students
in the natural environ-
ment.
“Watershed Educa-
tion School Tours will
allow students to expe-
rience nature in their
own backyards and
open their eyes to the
importance of conser-
vation and preservation
of streams, rivers, and
forests.”
The society is also ap-
plying in August for core
funding of about $40,000
from the B.C. Gaming
Policy and Enforcement
Branch.
Allco hatchery gets grant for new generator

Students from Highland Park elementary, at the Allco Fish Hatchery on Monday, place
possible sources of pollution on a demonstration table that shows how the pollutants
move downhill into rivers and streams when it rains.

O
ccasionally cats
end up at a shelter
because a woman has
learned she’s expecting and
she’s heard that cats carry a
disease that could harm her
baby.
There are so many things
to worry about when you’re
expecting.
Luckily, giving up your
cat doesn’t have to be one
of them. Proper precautions
are all that’s needed.
Toxoplasmosis is an
infection that can (‘can,’ not
‘will’) be transmitted from
cats to humans via the litter
pan. It’s caused by a para-
site and it commonly causes
very mild, flu-like symptoms
that last only a few days.
If an expectant mom gets
toxoplasmosis, it can cause
a miscarriage or birth
defects in her baby. But
congenital toxoplasmosis is
rare.
Cats get the parasite if
they eat contaminated raw
meat, birds or mice. Indoor
cats who eat only prepack-
aged food will not get it.
While cats are the only
species that shed the infec-
tious stage of toxoplasmosis
in their feces, other animals
can spread the disease if
their infected meat is eaten
without proper cooking.
Eating undercooked meat
is the most common cause
of toxoplasmosis, not the
family cat.
Actually, the odds of catch-
ing it from your cat are low.
When a cat is exposed for
the first time, he will excrete
the oocysts, which cause the
infection, and he will do so
for only two weeks.
Once a cat has had toxo-
plasmosis, he acquires im-
munity and can only rarely
be reinfected.
An outdoor hunting cat
is often exposed as a kitten
and is less likely to transmit
the infection as he ages.
Furthermore, the oocysts
must incubate for one to five
days to become infective,
so if a cat’s litter is changed
daily, exposure to infective
oocysts is unlikely.
The incubation only starts
when the oocysts leave the
cat’s body and have access
to oxygen.
Lastly, stroking your cat
will not expose you to infec-
tion.
So, considering the pos-
sible routes of infection
– raw or undercooked meat,
contaminated soil, and cats
– the following steps should
keep you and your baby safe
during your pregnancy:
• cook meat well (to at
least 70 degrees C) and
avoid raw cured meat such
as Parma ham;
• wash your hands, uten-
sils and work surfaces after
handling raw meat;
• avoid unpasteurized
milk/milk products;
• wash raw produce;
• wear gloves when
gardening and wash your
hands after;
• cover kids’ sand boxes so
cats aren’t tempted;
• have someone else clean
the litter tray while you’re
pregnant.
If there is nobody else to
clean the litter tray, you can
still do it safely.
Use disposable gloves, and
use a mask just to make
sure you don’t ingest any
litter dust stirred up by
scooping.
Empty the litter tray daily
and soak the tray for five
minutes with boiling water
(don’t rely on chemical
disinfection).
If you empty the tray
daily, then even if a cat is
excreting oocysts, they will
not have sporulated and will
not be infectious yet.
Lastly, wash your hands
after removing the gloves.
If you follow these precau-
tions, you and your baby can
both enjoy your pet while
your little one grows up.

THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
Funding for a Healthy Heart
The Knights of Columbus (Thomas Haney Council
5566) of Maple Ridge were quick to respond to the
need for a new Exercise Tolerance Test (ETT) with
treadmill at Ridge Meadows Hospital by contributing
$5,000 towards its purchase.
The ETT records a heart’s response to the stress of
exercise. It measures the heart’s electric activity, blood
pressure and heart rate while the patient exercises by
walking on a treadmill.
At Ridge Meadows Hospital, up to 45 patients a
week can be tested on the ETT. For these 45 patients,
it can mean pinpointing the cause of unexplained
chest pain. If a patient has had a heart attack or
heart surgery, it can help determine how much
work or exercise can be done safely. It may also be
recommended if a patient is experiencing irregular
heartbeats, dizziness, or excessive fatigue.
“The equipment that this year’s fundraising will
help to purchase is crucial in saving lives in our
communities. This donation, and the purchase of an
ETT with treadmill, will immediately impact patient
care,” said Dr. Winston Tsui, Cardiologist at RMH.
H & I ROOFING
A Gift of Celebration
When Mr. Harjit Singh Rai and Mrs. Inderjit Rai,
owners of H & I Roofing, planned the wedding
celebrations for their nephew, Jaspal Singh Mann,
they decided to celebrate more than just wedding
vows. They chose to also celebrate their health, and
the health care providers in Maple Ridge and Pitt
Meadows, by making a $10,000 donation to Ridge
Meadows Hospital Foundation.
“When my family and friends need medical
attention we go to Ridge Meadows Hospital. They are
always very good to us. We love living in Maple Ridge
and are grateful to have such excellent medical care
for our loved ones, our neighbours, and customers.
We all benefit from having a community hospital
and we believe it is our responsibility as residents of
Maple Ridge to help,” said Mr. Rai.
The Rai family has been very generous to the
RMHF in the past as well, making annual gifts to
help purchase life saving equipment. It is through
generous donations like this that our hospital has
state-of-the-art equipment and funding for education
and new programs.
HEALTH INVESTMENT GRANT
Cancer Survivors: Stride to Thrive
From a health and wellness perspective, walking as
a form of regular exercise has been shown to have
many benefits, not the least of which is to mitigate
the effects of chronic health conditions like cancer.
Through the Foundation’s new Health Investment
Grant, we were pleased to partner with MRPM Parks
& Leisure Services and Becker & Company to provide
the funds needed to launch a pilot walking program
“Stride To Thrive” for women dealing with cancer.
This program provided the opportunity for breast
cancer survivors to get active in order to improve their
physical and mental health and to have fun with like-
minded friends at the same time. Walking together
increases the fitness and social aspects of the group,
encouraging everyone to get outside, share their
stories, and support each other.
It is truly inspirational to see how quickly the
participant’s levels of fitness improved and how much
they enjoy coming to the sessions. As one participant
was heard to say, “It’s time to live!”
We are pleased to report that despite a challenging
economic climate post Olympic Games that Ridge
Meadows Hospital Foundation (RMHF) was able to
achieve our annual goals for 2010–2011. Over the
last year, RMHF gave grants totalling $443,856
to Ridge Meadows Hospital (RMH), Fraser Health
Authority (Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows) and other
health care partners in our communities.
We extend our sincere thanks to our extraordinary
donors—you are our true friends. I am grateful and
humbled by the generosity of our two communities
and how they respond when needs arise. And as
our needs expand, our Foundation Board members,
staff and volunteers remain committed to ensuring
you and your families, and all the residents of our
communities, have access to high quality health care
services, close to home.
A thriving Foundation must establish a clear
direction to navigate through times of change. So
in 2009 the RMHF Board of Directors developed and
approved a three year strategic plan incorporating
the mission “Investing in better health through
community partnerships” with four core goals:
1. To focus on investing wisely in better health for
the citizens of our two communities;
2. To investigate partnership opportunities
with community organizations and other
Foundations to increase revenue, minimize costs,
eliminate duplication, and maximize effect on
the health of the community;
3. To attract new donors; and,
4. To develop a new marketing strategy for the
RMHF.
In response to our first goal, in 2010–2011, RMHF
granted funding for equipment, research, and
education programs at Ridge Meadows Hospital
and Fraser Health departments in Maple Ridge and
Pitt Meadows, but also agreed to grants outside
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
“We extend our sincere thanks
to our extraordinary donors.”
Tank you for your generosity. We couldn’t have done it without you.
of the walls of Ridge Meadows Hospital. Grants
were approved for innovative programming which
contributes to good health such as the “It’s A Girl’s
World” program in cooperation with MR/PM Parks
and Recreation. This offered the opportunity for
young girls to learn about nutrition and physical
activity through positive mentorship. The “Stride
to Thrive” walking and support group was also
established for breast cancer survivors with great
success. These programs, and others we funded,
represent new partnerships for the Foundation and
have helped us to begin addressing our second goal.
Partnering with many local service clubs, businesses
and not-for-profit organizations in a wide variety
of fundraising initiatives has further enhanced our
vision of working more closely with others toward
our common goals.
Beyond these new programs, virtually every
department at RMH was touched by your support.
In response to goals three and four we continued
to share with you our message of need—much of
the clinical equipment necessary for effective health
care would not be available but for your donations.
We can only put vital equipment in the hands of
our caregivers with your help. By communicating
our need more effectively, we will engage our loyal
donors and spread our message to other residents.
SHOPPERS DRUG MART
Growing a Healthy Community
For the third year in a row, the Shoppers Drug Mart
‘Tree of Life’ campaign has had a direct impact on the
health of women in our community.
Annette Tsang, owner of Pitt Meadows Shoppers
Drug Mart is proud of her staff and her customers
and said “It’s wonderful to be part of a community
that values their hospital and health care so
generously year after year. We are pleased to be part
of such a generous community and take pride in
partnering with Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation
to ensure our hospital has the equipment to look
after us all.”
The Tree of Life campaign at Pitt Meadows
Shoppers Drug Mart was pleased to raise over $2,200
for women’s health care at Ridge Meadows Hospital.
It’s heartfelt campaigns like ‘The Tree of Life’ that
brings communities together and we thank Shoppers
Drug Mart, their employees, and their customers, for
helping us make a difference in Pitt Meadows and
Maple Ridge.

22 -- Wednesday, June 22, 2011 -- THE NEWS - www.mapleridgenews.com
A friend of mine, Mary, told me that she had recently been asked to
be the executor of an estate by a woman with whom she curled, Sue.
Although she did not know Sue that well, Mary was touched, flattered,
and honoured that Sue would ask her and so agreed.
As Mary told me a little more about Sue’s background, I knew that Mary
would have more work on her hands than she bargained for. Sue had recently
left a marriage of more than 40 years and had divorced. As a result of the
marital breakup, her two grown sons were estranged from her. Soon after,
she began a live-in relationship with another man. Because of the divorce and
the estrangement, Sue had a Will drawn up and excluded her two sons as
beneficiaries.
As an executor, Mary would be responsible to carry out the terms of Sue’s
Will. The estate would consist of the assets Sue had at her death. The Will gave
her instructions.
Under normal circumstances settling an estate can be a very complicated
and time consuming process taking an average of 18 months but Sue’s estate
would take longer. Sue had an up to date Will but it was not something she
had discussed with her family due to the estrangement. By not providing for
her sons in the Will, she had invited potential legal action.
What Mary didn’t know, that by her agreement to act as executor, she
had placed herself right in the middle of difficult family dynamics. Sue likely
didn’t know that what she saw as quite a simple matter could potentially
lead to significant financial and emotional problems for her family and for her
executor, Mary.
Choosing an executor, deciding on who or what charity should be
beneficiaries, recognizing the tax implications of settling your estate are just
some of the considerations in developing an Estate Plan.
In the whole Will and estate planning process, we advise you seek
professional advice. After all, no two estates are the same. What works for
your friend, may not work for you. It is best to enlist the help of your lawyer,
accountant, and financial advisor to help investigate the
best possible financial structure for you.

New art show at New Creations
There’s an exhibition on at New
Creations Gallery this month by
mother and daughter artists Eliza-
beth Boulton and Emily Boulton.
The Boultons will share the gal-
lery space with Rae Mond.
Liz Boulton was born in Hamilton,
Ont. and moved, at 19, to British
Columbia, where the natural beau-
ty inspired her to create wildlife
portraits in watercolor, pencil and
acrylics.
She is mainly a self-taught artist
who has volunteered her talent as
an art teacher in schools and has
taught workshops to teachers and
students alike.
Currently local scenes of Pitt
Meadows and Maple Ridge rep-
resented in a loose watercolor or
acrylic technique style inspires her.
Emily Boulton is a young emerg-
ing artist from Pitt Meadows.
She has appreciation for a pletho-
ra of different styles and techniques
and does not like to limit herself to
one approach.
At a young age, Emily began draw-
ing realistic portraits and aban-
doned realism for surrealism as a
teenager. Her two years in the Stu-
dio Arts program at Capilano Uni-
versity indoctrinated an abstract
style to her work.
Presently, she enjoys painting im-
ages that border on Impressionism
and Abstraction.
She is has also been a keen sup-
porter of the local music scene and
has been contracted to do album
artwork for several bands.
Singing to change the world
“I’d like to teach the world to sing,
in perfect harmony.
A song of peace that echoes on,
and never goes away.”
F
or 15-year-old Michaela Du-
rovic, the words of that fa-
mous Coke jingle hold true.
Song has the ability to transform,
to bringing people together, to
change moods.
The Maple Ridge secondary stu-
dent, who sings with the Coastal
Sound Youth Choir, has seen it first
hand at competitions that draw
participants from all corners of the
big, wide world.
Everybody can relate to each oth-
er, explains Durovic, even people
who don’t really speak English.
“We can come together and make
friends just because we can all
sing,” says Durovic, who will be
taking part in the Coastal Sound
International Choral Festival next
month.
The festival evolved from a gath-
ering of children at the World Cho-
ral Symposium 2001, held in Van-
couver.
Coast Sound artistic director
Donna Otto decided to host a simi-
lar event in Vancouver every two
years.
This year, the festival with a
theme “Songs of the World” will
take place at Simon Fraser Univer-
sity in Burnaby and feature eight
choirs with approximately 350
singers.
“We believe that when songs are
sung from the heart, transforma-
tion, and in some situations, even
transfiguration, can occur in many
ways,” says Coast Sound secre-
tary David Spence, explaining that
change could mean peace between
nations, economic vitality and eco-
logical sustainability.
“The world can be changed one
song at a time; and when the festi-
val choristers sing together, many
new ways for life can be achieved.”
Two world renowned choral in-
structors – Rollo Dilworth and
Henry Leck – will lead rehearsals,
workshops, and performances dur-
ing the six day event, while 12 oth-
er music educators and ethnomusi-
cologists will deliver daily clinics
and seminars to the singers.
Each of the eight choirs – six from
the U.S. and two from Canada – has
an opportunity to sing their own
national and cultural choral reper-
toire in daily concerts.
All eight choirs will perform 14
songs en mass during the closing
gala.
Carrie Tennant, who directs
Coast Sounds Youth Choir, has cho-
sen some of the ensembles favou-
rite pieces to perform at their solo
concert including Canadian folk
music, a German piece from the
Romantic era, an arrangement of a
song written by Swedish jazz pia-
nist Lars Jansson and even a Dolly
Parton song.
The choir features 65 chorists, 30
from Maple Ridge.
Contributed
A painting by Emily Boulton and a landscape painting by her mother Elizabeth.

and Pitt Meadows gear up for

Longer days and warmer days signal the start of
the outdoor concert season.
This year, you’ll be treated to performances in
Maple Ridge at Memorial Peace and the wharf, as
well as Pitt Meadows.
The Maple Ridge Concert Band kicked off the sea-
sonal serenade with a year-end concert yesterday,
but will be back in July with Twilight Tuesdays,
free weekly performances that take place on the
bandstand in Memorial Peace Park until July 19.
The concert band consists of 40 or so members of
all ages and musical abilities.
Currently directed by Ed Dumas, the band has
been around for more than 60 years.
They plays a variety of music, from symphonic
works for wind ensembles to big band swing, tra-
ditional hymns, Dixieland, Sousa and Broadway
musicals.
The Bruce James Orchestra performs on Wednes-
day throughout summer in Pitt Meadows Spirit
Square.
Catch the Maple Ridge-based swing band and oth-
er performers as they liven up the city’s civic centre
off Harris Road.
Music on the Wharf begins July 11.
The bi-weekly concerts take place on the Port
Haney Wharf. Marty Bernard and the Bloo Zebras
open the popular outdoor concert series.
Bernard is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and
songwriter who lives in Maple Ridge. His latest al-
bum, Tuesdays with Crunchy, featuring the Bloo
Zebras, was released last year.
Described as a psychedelic blend of cosmic blues,
roots and rock, the Bloo Zebras are known for the
electric live shows. The band features Willie Mac-
Calder, Gary Koliger, Michael Chase, Jackie Tree-
horn and Dave Webb.

day concerts at the bandstand throughout summer.
Photographer wins award
Maple Ridge photographer Karen Learmonth has won the craftsman of
photographic arts award handed out annual by the Association of Profes-
sional Photographers of Canada.
The latest honour came after Learmonth had three prints accepted for
the competition, including an architectural print that won “merit” status
in both B.C. and Canada, a second that won best in class in figure study
and a third that will be hung in the National Salon.
Learmonth’s photographic art is a fusion of photography, painting and
illustration, and has been published nationally and internationally.
She owns Amber Light Photography and Design and will receive the
award at the association’s upcoming banquet.

“We also have a special surprise planned for
the audience that includes some music from
Sesame Street, some vampire capes and the Ma-
carena,” says Tennant, careful not to reveal ex-
act details of their July 8 performance.
The Coast Sound Youth Choir and children
choir begin the festival on a high note. Both
won their classes at the Performing Arts B.C.
Festival this month and now advanced to the na-
tional festival.
The youth choir was also awarded the Phyllis
Schuldt Award for the most outstanding perfor-
mance in the choral classes at the provincial
festival for Jozef Rheinberger’s Abendlied. It
has also been selected as a finalist for the 2011
National Competition for Canadian Amateur
Choirs.
Tennant said the youth singers in this choir
are like a family and that could be why they’ve
been sweeping competitions.
“They really care about each other, and they
are truly passionate about the music they are
making,” she added.
“I think that this sort of vulnerability and
openness is rare in our day and age, and that’s
why the Coastal Sound performances touch peo-
ple so deeply.”
Coastal Sounds Women’s Choir also won their
category at the provincials.

business PROFILE
ADVERTORIAL
Watch for Upcoming Workshops
Many successful businesses have thrived or
survived off building a retail outlet into a wider
community, expanding their market in the
process. At Maple Ridge’s Richila Fabrics, partners
Hilary Talbot and Richard Tuffin are planning to
do that this fall by offering instructional classes,
teaching interested participants new ways to use
their wide selection of fabrics and products. “The
retail fabric business is traditionally slower in the
summer months but this year we have noted an
increasing number of customers are buying fabric
on line or going to the United States to buy their
fabric. Since the collapse of the American dollar
many Canadians are finding bargains in the USA.
That’s the benefit of a free market economy but
small retailers like us have to find ways to deal
with it or we won’t be here to offer customers the
convenience of a local store.” Richard said.
“We will be offering sewing classes in
September,” Hilary said. “We’ll be offering
beginner and advanced sewing classes which
will have plenty of variety, with participants able
to pick their own projects and work through
them with help from instructors, starting with
something simple and progressing to quite
complicated sewing projects. We also hope to
offer beginner and advanced quilting classes,
which is a very popular hobby”. The classes may
not open until September, but Richila Fabrics
has plenty to offer in the meantime with diverse
line up of products for the summer, including an
expanded selection of light fabrics like cotton
sateens in a wide array of colours and prints. “We
try to bring in more lightweights for the summer
fashions,” Hilary said “and we also carry quite a
good selection of bridal materials in all kinds of
colours for bridesmaids’ dresses and wedding
décor.”
“It’s not just about clothing, either” Hilary said.
“Some of our most popular summer items are
blackout drapery material, an important element
for parents whose kids are waking up at five in
the morning with the early dawn, and vinyl that
can be used for a wide variety of upholstery
from boat seats to patio furniture and camper
cushions.” Richila Fabrics also carries everything
for quilts; hundreds of designs of 100% cotton
material and the batting that goes inside, making
it a convenient one-stop shop for quilting needs.
“Pure cotton is the preferred fabric for quilting
and cotton batting is the standard for many fancy
quilts, though we also offer batting in cotton/
polyester mixes and polyester.”
Richard said “The next step for the business is
working to develop the new classes, which are
expected to be extremely popular if the number
of enquiries is anything to judge by. We’re
very excited about this and are hoping it will
encourage lots of people to learn to make their
own unique clothing and crafts. We can provide
all the necessary fabric, notions and patterns as
well as expert tuition. Registrations are being
taken now for the limited spaces available.”
Richila Fabrics is presently located at No. 180,
22255 Dewdney Trunk Road (Haney Plaza), Maple
Ridge, V2X 3J1 and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
during the summer.

www.mapleridgenews.com - THE NEWS -- Wednesday, June 22, 2011 -- 31
Every day throughout British Columbia,
thousands of heroes risk their lives to
help others.
Fire fighter Terry Hughes is one of those
heroes – whose job it is to keep others
safe, even if it means risking his own
safety.
He is also a Regional Director of the
B.C. Professional Fire
Fighters' Burn Fund, where he
often meets heroes of another
kind – burn survivors.
With the loyal support of more
than 3,800 fire fighters across
the province who volunteer their
time – not to mention generous
members of the public who
donate – the Burn Fund offers a
variety of programs to support
survivors of all ages.
"With our annual summer Burn
Camp for kids, we give children
survivors a chance to be among
their peers and really just enjoy
the experience of camp," Hughes
said, noting the Burn Fund's
reach extends throughout B.C. and the
Yukon. "Through the various programs
run by the Burn Fund,
we give burn survivors the ability to
gain confidence and move forward
through life."
As one of the largest fundraisers for the
Burn Fund (www.burnfund.org), Hughes
said the money raised by the Hometown
Heroes Lottery provides a large and
important boost to the fund's programs.
"We depend very much upon the
Hometown Heroes Lottery," he said. "The
funds help us to continue the good work
that the Burn Fund does throughout the
year, and we couldn't continue without
the generous support of the public."
By purchasing a ticket for the Hometown
Heroes Lottery, you have a chance to be
a hero, too.
Each ticket purchased supports the
Burn Fund, as well as the highly
trained trauma teams and medical
specialists at VGH, UBC Hospital and
the GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre.
With more than 3,000 prizes available
to win– including four remarkable Grand
Prize Options, this Heroes Lottery is not
to be missed.
There are also seven great Early Bird
prizes, including a Porsche Boxster
Spyder convertible, a Mini Cooper S
convertible or one of five trips for two
to fabulous Las Vegas as well as cash
options (deadline midnight June 24).
With tickets at only two for $50, six
for $100 and 16 for $250, You have a
chance to win some fantastic Early
Bird prizes, and also support our
local heroes.
While the Early Bird option offers some
great prizes, the real highlight of this
year's Heroes Lottery are the four Grand
Prize options. The life of luxury is offered
with the prize home at Elgin Park
Estates in South Surrey – a six bedroom
family home with more than 6,000
square feet, complete with furnishings,
hot tub and gym.
If you prefer Urban Living, a charming,
fully furnished
Kitsilano character home near
the beach could be just the
prize for you.
For the ultimate peaceful getaway
winners can choose the Cultus
Lake cottage option. In addition to
the prize homes, winners can
choose a whopping $1.6 million
tax free cash option.

Maple Ridge’s Kolbie Orum
came home from Mexico with a
bronze medal around her neck
after she and the rest of Cana-
dian cadette women’s national
basketball team finished third
at the 2011 FIBA Americas U-16
Championship last weekend.
Canada beat Puerto Rico 53-36
on Saturday to secure their place
on the podium and to qualify for
the 2012 FIBA U-17 World Cham-
pionship in the Netherlands.
For Orum, a Grade 10 student at
Maple Ridge Secondary School,
her first international experience
is one she won’t soon forget.
“It made me so proud to repre-
sent my country,” she said. “This
is something I’ve been working to-
wards, so I was speechless when I
found out I made the team.”
Orum was a member of the Ma-
ple Ridge Ramblers senior girls’
basketball team this season, and
averaged more than 30 points per
game at provincials, earning her
an all-star nod. Orum has also
been a member of provincial de-
velopment teams, and despite be-
ing 15 years old, qualified for the
Team B.C. U-17 squad.
Still, playing in Mexico with
Team Canada was unlike any-
thing she had ever experienced.
For one thing, there was no air
conditioning, which meant tem-
peratures on the hardwood were
in the high 30s.
“She was just pouring sweat
out there, everyone was,” said
Orum’s mother Rene Croft, who
played NCAA Division I basket-
ball with the University of Ne-
vada Las Vegas Runnin’ Rebels.
The gyms were built with open
walls to help keep them cool, but
that invited in some unwelcome
visitors.
“At points there were birds fly-
ing around in the gym while we
were playing,” said Orum. “It
was a totally different experience
playing down there.”
Although she still has two years
left of high school, Orum already
has her sights set on playing
NCAA basketball south of the
border, following in the footsteps
of not only her mother, but of for-
mer team mate Mae Woods, now
with the Univsersity of Houston
Cougars.
“We only played together for
one year, but she was a great
player,” said Orum. “I’d like to
get an NCAA scholarship, but I’m
still looking at colleges, so I don’t
really know where I’ll go.”
One place she would like to go,
however, is the Olympics as a
member of the Canadian national
team someday.
“I want to be on the senior na-
tional team, and hopefully make
the Olympic team,” she said.
She will likely face many future
Olympians at the 2012 FIBA U-17
World Championships next after
winning bronze in Mexico.
Despite playing centre for the
Ramblers, Orum played the en-
tire tournament on the wing. At
six-foot-three, she wasn’t the tall-
est player on the team, a new ex-
perience for her.
“It was a bit weird, but it let me
see things differently, I feel like
I have better all-round knowl-
edge of how the offence works,”
Orum said. “In college I probably
wouldn’t play post, so it was good
experience.”
Team Canada played Guata-
mala, Puerto Rico and Mexico
in their first three games of the
tournament, beating them hand-
ily. That set up a semi-final game
with Brazil, which was the team’s
only loss of the tournament.
Facing Puerto Rico for the sec-
ond time in the tournament, Can-
ada maintained a comfortable
lead in the first half, but only held
a 22-19 edge at halftime. Early in
the third quarter, Puerto Rico
came within two points, but a 10-0
run, thanks to shot-making by
Orum and teammates Cheyanne
Roger, Audrey-Ann Caron-Gou-
dreau and Anmol Mattu stretched
the lead to double-digits and the
Cadettes never looked back.
This is the first time Canada has
won bronze at the FIBA Americas
U-16 Women’s Championship and
the second time in a row that the
cadette women have medaled and
qualified for the FIBA U-17 World
Championship.
The Maple Ridge Burrards
fell to 3-5 this season and
slipped to sixth place in the
Western Lacrosse Association
standings after a pair of losses
last weekend to the Langley
Thunder and the Victoria
Shamrocks.
The Burrards travelled to
Langley on Saturday for the
first time this season to take
on the Thunder, falling 11-6.
Langley got on the board
first, scoring four minutes into
the first period, and took a 2-1
lead on the Burrards into the
dressing room for the first in-
termission.
Langley stretched their lead
to 5-1 midway through the sec-
ond frame before Maple Ridge
mounted their comeback. The
Burrards scored four unan-
swered goals, thanks in part
to a hat trick by Derek Lowe,
and managed to even up the
game for two minutes before
Langley pulled ahead once
more with a minute left to play
in the period.
Though down by just goal
going into the third, the Bur-
rards struggled in the final
frame, getting out-scored 5-1.
Lowe led Burradrs scorers
with four points. Riley Loewen
and Aaron Pascas each had
a goal and two assists, while
Joel Dalgarno had three as-
sists and Curtis Dickson had
Maple Ridge’s lone goal in the
third period.
Burrards backup Drew
Dickie made 32 saves, while
Joe Bell turned aside 44 for the
Thunder.
The Burrards faced the 4-2-
1 Victoria Shamrocks Sun-
day night at home in a game
marked rough and tumble
play and lots of scoring.
There wasn’t much defence
during the first period as both
teams scored a combined 13
goals, with Victoria hanging
on to a slim 7-6 lead going into
the second.
Victoria added to their lead
in the second, out-scoring
Maple Ridge 4-2 to pull ahead
11-8. The Burrards mounted a
comeback in the third with a
pair of late power play goals,
but it was not enough to catch
the Shamrocks, who won 14-
12.
Curtis Dickson led Maple
Ridge scorers with three goals
and three assists. Derek Lowe
and Joel Dalgarno each had
five-point nights, while Ran-
dy Daly, Peter Tellis, Aaron
Pascas, and Creighton Reid
each had a single goal to their
credit. Riley Loewen also had
a pair of goals.
• The Burrards next home
game is this Sunday at 6:45 p.m.
against the Coquitlam Adanacs

The 2000 Junior Flames defeated
the 99 Fuel 5-1 Sunday to win the
Langley spring hockey league pee-
wee 2 playoff title.
Jakob McQuillin, from Dallas Te-
ichrob and Jaden Rudland, gave the
Flames 1-0 lead in the first period.
They took a 3-0 lead in the second
on goals by Matteo Gagno and Rud-
land, with assists to Sean McClo-
sky, Cam Gjaltema, Teichrob and
McQuillin.
The Fuel scored first in the third,
but the Flames got insurance mark-
ers from Gavin Bruce and Taylor
Lewis in the last minute to clinch
the championship.
Colby Larson, Justin Cloete and
Gjaltema earned assists on the last
two goals.
Jeffrey Sunshine made more than
20 saves for the win.
Josh Walls, Zack Wismer, Nik
Pederson, Nick Thompson and Evan
Allen also played key roles for the
Flames during their playoff run,
during which they went undefeated
and outscored opponents 16-3.
The Flames defeated Jr. Chiefs 4-0
in the semi-finals and opened the
playoffs with a 7-0 win over the AA
Young Guns.
The Flames went 6-2 in the regu-
lar spring season, finishing second
behind the Fuel.
“For the last month, the team has
really come together. The players
bought in the mantra of believing
in themselves, their teammates and
coaches, the system. Do that, and
you win hockey games,” said Jr.
Flames head coach Mike Walls.
“Every single one of those kids has
improved like you wouldn’t believe.
And they deserved to win. Through-
out the playoffs, they outworked ev-
ery team they played. Even if they
were down, they never gave up.”
Walls said they kept their focus
simple – one shift at a time.
“It was a real group effort.”
• Another key member of the
team, Kyle Jansson was injured at
the end of the season and did not
play in playoffs.

ONE LANE ROAD CLOSURE—DEWDNEY TRUNK ROAD
June 13–July 22, 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-June, 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 AND
HAYWARD STREET ROAD CLOSURE
Reservoir Drawdown: May 24–June 24
Road Closure: May 30–June 24
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. Hayward Street over
Ruskin Dam will also be closed Monday to Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. from May 30 to June 24.
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 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.

AVERILL, Arthur John
Francis (“John”)
Born May 24, 1922 in Duncan,
BC passed away after a long
and courageous battle with
multiple health issues on
June 14, 2011 in Maple
Ridge, BC. John will be
greatly missed by his
devoted and much loved
wife, Muriel-Anne, his
daughters Sue (Tom) and
Vicki (Terry), grandchildren
James and Michael, great
grandson Seth, John’s feline
companions Snoopy the Black and
Clio and his grand dogs Hunter and
Koora. Although born in Canada, John was educated in England
and later completed his undergraduate degree at McGill
University. He served in the Canadian military during the latter
stages of World War II, during which time he met and married
Babs, his partner and mother of his children until her death
in 1977. After the war, John returned to civilian life to begin
a teaching career at St George’s School in Vancouver, followed
by a decade long role as a professional driver with Argus
Carriers Limited. John returned to teaching in 1959 at Gladstone
Secondary School in East Vancouver, where, until his retirement
23 years later, he ensured that generations of kids came to know
and love the English language and appreciate its proper usage.
A lover of theatre and the performing arts, John spent much
of his retirement actively supporting the Greater Vancouver
Operatic Society as stage and lighting manager. John also
enjoyed travelling, history, and political debates with anyone
who would participate, as well as his daily crossword puzzle
which he always completed in pen, not pencil. The family would
like to acknowledge the exceptional care provided to John by Dr.
Michelle Little and some very special nurses in the ER, and on
2West and Alouette Rehabilitation at Ridge Meadows Hospital.
Your skill, compassion and concern for our special husband and
dear father gave us the strength to support him in his battle to
its final conclusion. At last, John is at peace. A celebration of life
will be held on Saturday, June 25 at 11:00 a.m., in First Memorial
Burkeview Chapel, 1340 Dominion Ave, Port Coquitlam, BC . In
lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Foundation would
be greatly appreciated.
