A 33-year-old Vancouver man appeared in Clark County Superior Court Monday on charges of attempting to lure a minor into his home.

Judge Emily Sheldrick set Christopher Ryan Housen’s bail at $ 15,000. He is to be arrested on October 1.

According to a pre-booking sheet in prison, Housen has already been diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies responded at around 10:55 a.m. on September 14 after an 11-year-old girl reported a man yelled at her as she walked to school to come home at home so he could show her something, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The girl ran to school with a male student. She reported that she was walking in the 3300 block of 94th Way when the man, later identified by MPs as Housen, called her from her home. She said she thought she was going to be kidnapped, the affidavit states.

MPs compared the description of the man’s young daughter with previously booked photos of Housen, according to court records.

Then, at 5:24 p.m., MPs responded to a report of sexual assault. A woman said a man stopped and groped her around 1:30 p.m. near Northeast 32nd Avenue and 96th Street, according to the affidavit.

His description of the man and what he was wearing matched the description of the 11-year-old, according to the affidavit. The woman said she was afraid of reprisals and asked the police not to investigate or arrest anyone, according to court records.

MPs also found a report from around 7.20am from a man matching Housen’s description who allegedly tried to kiss a passerby. The incident occurred within walking distance of the other two calls, according to the affidavit.

Neighbors confirmed that the man described was Housen and that he lived in the area, the affidavit states.

As the first holiday of National Truth and Reconciliation Day approaches later this month, the UBC Museum of Anthropology is planning an event that blends children’s stories, art and education.

On Saturday September 25, the museum will host “Honor with Orange”, an event for families with children aged 6 to 12 with the aim of educating about the impact of schools and honoring survivors.

The museum’s curator of Indigenous programming, Damara Jacobs-Petersen, will first read children’s stories by Indigenous Canadian authors, exploring issues related to residential schools. This will give attendees the opportunity to explore the legacy of residential schools ahead of National Truth and Reconciliation Day on September 30.

After the stories, a more practical activity is planned.

“After the storytelling, you will have the opportunity to create your own commemorative orange lantern and button while learning more about the meaning of Orange Jersey Day,” the event’s webpage reads.

Things will start at 10:30 a.m., with stories until 11 a.m. The more artisanal parts will take place from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The event is first come, first served. The cost of the event is included in the admission to the museum.

VANCOUVER – Early turnover and a penalty resulted in two tries for Great Britain in a 31-5 victory over Canada in Sunday’s men’s quarterfinal at the World Rugby Sevens Series.

VANCOUVER – Early turnover and a penalty resulted in two tries for Great Britain in a 31-5 victory over Canada in Sunday’s men’s quarterfinal at the World Rugby Sevens Series.

Canada had the ball early in the game but failed to break through a solid British defense.

A Canadian turnover led to Britain’s first try.

Canadian captain Phil Berna was penalized for intentionally reversing a pass later in the half. Playing a short man, the Canadians gave up another try to lead 14-5 at halftime.

The British dominated the second half by scoring you more. Victoria’s Jack Carson scored Canada’s only try of the game.

“We were strong from the start, but we couldn’t stay the course for the whole half,” said Carson. “They’re probably the most elite team we’ve played so far, and that gives us a few things to look at before our next game.”

The best the host men can finish in Vancouver is fifth.

Canada beat Germany 24-5 and Chile 19-14 before losing 29-17 to the United States on Saturday.

Competing in the “Fast Four” tournament in Vancouver, the Canadians lost 22-12 to the United States and 19-5 to Great Britain before defeating Mexico 39-0 on Saturday.

Canada (1-2) was scheduled to face the United States (2-1) in a semi-final on Sunday, while Great Britain (3-0) faced Mexico (0-3) in the other. The winners play for the gold medal and the losers meet for the bronze.

The Canadian men fielded a young team with nine players making their series debuts.

Several veterans, including Nate Hirayama, Connor Braid, Justin Douglas and Conor Trainor, all retired after the Summer Olympics in Tokyo where Canada finished eighth.

The Vancouver tournament is the first HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series event since the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the circuit in March 2020.

The pandemic involves attendance at BC Place Stadium limited to around 13,500 in the lower bowl, but fans in the stands are still dressed for the occasion.

A group of nuns were seated near several monks. There were plenty of superheroes, furry creatures, and fluffy wigs. The Mandolin was watching the matches with Baby Yoda on her lap.

A large white unicorn displayed surprisingly good dance moves. The pirates munched on popcorn while several pink pigs sipped beer.

The Vancouver tournament only has a dozen men’s teams instead of the usual 16. Rugby powers in New Zealand, Fiji, Australia and Samoa did not participate in the event.

World Rugby has said there will be no relegation from the 2021 series and the results will not count towards the seeds for future events.

The Canadian teams will travel to Edmonton for the series stage next week.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published on September 19, 2021.

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Watch out for frogs on roads and driveways after heavy rains, says a UBC professor who specializes in amphibians.

John Richardson of the Department of Forestry and Conservation Sciences says frogs, toads, salamanders and many more venture out of their hiding places under logs and rocks to soak up the wet weather.

“It’s fun to imagine frogs going out and doing happy dances in the rain, but the reality is that amphibians are quite sensitive to dryness. [conditions], and we’ve had pretty dry weather for the last six months, ”he says.

The wetlands are also drier than usual after a hot summer which saw a vicious forest fire season. This is a problem for amphibians, which breathe through the skin.

“They really like wet, cool conditions, so you don’t really see frogs sitting in the open when it’s dry and hot,” he says. “That’s why people might start to see them more often. “

There are only about 20 species of amphibians in the entire province of British Columbia, most commonly the western tree frog, red-legged frog and Oregon spotted frog. The latter is very threatened in the Lower Mainland.

Bullfrogs are an invasive species, which Trovato calls “a problem” for the movement of native species. Major amphibian species in British Columbia also include green frogs and four types of salamanders.

The most problematic time of year for frogs and toads is spring, when adults return to ponds, he says. They leave later in the summer, when many are killed by motorists.

To ensure their safety, there are places near Chilliwack where they close the roads every year to allow millions of toads to cross the roads on their migratory routes. Some people have even built amphibian tunnels to help them on their way.

“After a rain like this, it is possible that there are more amphibians on the roads,” says Trovato.

It’s illegal to touch and move wild animals like frogs in Canada, so if you see them, it’s best to leave them alone.

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Baseball is returning to Nat Bailey Stadium in Vancouver this month… sort of. Fans who missed hearing the crackle of the bat and the roar of the crowd will be able to see three films next week while supporting a good cause.

The Vancouver Canadians have not played in the city since 2019 due to COVID-19. When they return in 2022, it will be 965 days since they touched their land.

The club is partnering with Fresh Air Cinema and Fortis BC to present three films over three days.

General manager Allan Bailey said they jumped at the chance to present a how to sports fans.

“Just being able to do something for the community and bring people back to the stadium is sort of the main reason we’re looking to show these movies,” he says.

The series kicks off A league apart September 23, followed by Field of dreams September 24, and The recruit September 25. Bailey says he hopes the events give people who missed out on a beloved summer tradition a chance to experience some of what they missed.

“It was hard for some. It’s that second family for some people, especially season ticket holders, ”he says.

“They haven’t been able to see these people for two years now. The stories I keep hearing, they kind of tried to keep in touch with these people, but it’s just not the same as seeing them at the ballpark.

Suggested registration donation is $ 10, with money raised going to the Vancouver Canadians Foundation.

“It’s basically about supporting baseball in Vancouver and British Columbia and helping young people overcome a series of challenges they face,” he explains, adding that one of the initiatives he is most proud is a partnership with the Boys and Girls Club which brings around 350 children to the stadium to learn the game.

“It’s really fun having all these kids playing on the field, learning baseball skills and being fed a hot meal. The foundation provides all of these kids with a helmet, glove, bag carrying gear, transportation, and it really gives them the chance to play a game that they might not otherwise be able to play.

Since the park closed, the concession stands have neither been supplied nor staffed. But Bailey says people are allowed to bring their own popcorn or snacks.

Bailey hopes the screenings will remind people how much they appreciate the venue and boost sales for the 2022 season.

Whoever sits on the left side of the Canucks’ third duo will end up in training camp.

The Vancouver Canucks have experienced significant roster turnover over the past year. Of the 23 players in their opening lineup last season, nine of them are no longer with the squad.

That means the 2021-22 Canucks will be very different from last year’s squad, but the final roster is far from clear. As the team heads to training camp next week, fans should keep an eye out for a few key battles for the roster spots.

There will be a battle for a place in the Canucks’ top six and a battle to play on the fourth line alongside Brandon Sutter and Tyler Motte, but the most controversial battle will likely be on the left side of the defense.

There, the Canucks have two young defensemen vying for a place in the starting lineup: Olli Juolevi and Jack Rathbone. If this battle wasn’t going to be fierce enough, there’s another defender who could turn this duel into real life: veteran Brad Hunt.

Let’s take a look at the players and complications that make this the most compelling battle of Canucks training camp.

Olli Juolevi: the top ten under siege

Juolevi was with the Canucks the longest in the line-up, drafted fifth overall in 2016. A lot has gone wrong in his development since then. Initially screened as a potential first-team defender, significant injuries and limited mobility drastically lowered expectations.

Still, 23-year-old Juolevi has many of the qualities needed to play in the NHL. He’s a smart defenseman, moves the puck efficiently, and has the size and strength to fight his opponents. He proved last season that he can play at the NHL level, albeit in a heavily protected role.

Although he had some issues getting beaten to the sidelines in the race and faced weaker competition than the rest of the Canucks defense, Juolevi still had strong defensive results. . He was on the ice for the third lowest high danger chance rate among the Canucks behind a duo of Alex Edler and Nate Schmidt and the second lowest against goal rate behind Travis Hamonic.

This shows up in his isolated impact heat map from HockeyViz. His offensive contributions may have been limited – he only managed 3 points in 23 games – he was relatively effective in protecting the net.

There are still concerns about his mobility – he has a bad tendency to burn himself in the race – but there are also reasons for optimism. The hope is that Juolevi can take a step forward after playing 23 games next season.

While Juolevi was able to fit his role in a limited role, Jack Rathbone might be able to make a bigger impact.

Jack Rathbone: the high-flying hot shot

Rathbone represents the thrill of the possible. The 22-year-old may only be a year younger than Juolevi, but he’s far less professionally tested. The little professional hockey he has seen has been extremely encouraging.

At the AHL level, Rathbone dominated, racking up 9 points in just 8 games. An injury brought him to Vancouver for treatment and he never left, appearing in 8 NHL games with the Canucks. He scored 3 points in those 8 games, including his first career goal, and showed exciting potential.

Rathbone’s scans in his small sample of just 8 games are sheer chaos and should likely be defenestrated, especially since they were all played out in the Canucks’ difficult post-COVID epidemic schedule.

Let’s take a look at its isolated impact heat map, though.

rathbone hockeyviz heat map

That’s a lot of offense created by Rathbone, who is primarily known as an offensive defender. In addition to his 9 AHL points last season, Rathbone had 31 points in 28 games for Harvard University the previous year, good for third in the country in points per game among NCAA defensemen.

This came with lousy looking defensive numbers for Rathbone but, again, it’s in a small sample size at a difficult time in the calendar. What’s exciting about Rathbone beyond his offensive potential is his ability to use his defensive skating. His mobility is the opposite of Juolevi’s specter.

This play in the AHL, courtesy of Cody Severtson at AHL Nucks Harvest, shows that skating wonderfully.

Rathbone generates more speed from a stop when skating backwards than some defenders can generate when skating forward. He combines that with aggressive play in the neutral zone that disrupts the run, then covers his front teammate when beaten to the side.

Juolevi vs. Rathbone would be convincing enough on his own, but Brad Hunt complicates matters.

Brad Hunt: the reliable veteran

It’s easy to imagine that veteran Hunt, who was born and raised in Maple Ridge, was signed primarily as an AHL depth. But Hunt hasn’t played in the AHL since the 2016-17 season, when he racked up 29 points in 23 games, which led the entire league in scoring when he was called up.

Hunt has since played for four different NHL teams, including the Minnesota Wild, where he played the past two and a half seasons. Hunt was a reliable defenseman for the Wild when he was in the lineup.

heat map of brad hunting hockeyviz

It’s easy to draw a parallel with another undersized veteran defenseman in recent Canucks history – Alex Biega. Now signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Biega was a valuable defenseman for the Canucks as he sat in the press box without a complaint, then could be connected to the roster and play a reliable, hard-working game.

In fact, Hunt seems ideally placed to be a seventh or eighth defenseman, while the Canucks might not want to use a young defenseman like Juolevi or Rathbone in such a role.

This means that even if Hunt doesn’t beat Juolevi or Rathbone to be in the starting lineup, he could still be part of the opening night roster, while one of Juolevi or Rathbone is sent to the AHL. to play big minutes for the Abbotsford Canucks. .

There are other factors that will play a role in the Canucks’ decision beyond how the three defensemen play in camp: their hits, eligibility for the waiver and the complications of the salary cap situation. Canucks.

Cap hits, waivers and LTIR: it’s complicated

Let’s start with their respective successes. Juolevi is the cheapest of the three at $ 750,000 with a one-year contract. It gives Juolevi an advantage if the Canucks need to nip some pennies to put Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes under the cap.

However, the other two are not much more expensive. Hunt signed a one-year contract worth $ 800,000, which is $ 50,000 more than Juolevi. The two are on one-way deals meaning they will receive the same amount in the AHL, so there is no financial benefit to sending either.

Rathbone is the most expensive, but only hit a cap of $ 925,000 in the final year of its entry-level contract. Would $ 175,000 really make a big difference if Rathbone outperformed Juolevi in ​​training camp? Maybe not, but what if they play a draw in the camp, with no clear winner?

Rathbone is also the only one of the three to be waived, meaning he can be sent into the AHL without having to clear the waivers first. Both Juolevi and Hunt are expected to be given a waiver before being sent to the AHL and there is a possibility that they will be claimed. Juolevi still has his pedigree as the 6th overall pick, while Hunt has already been claimed on waivers.

This is where things get tricky. If Rathbone is sent to the AHL, he’ll have a higher hat trick if the Canucks want to call him mid-season. Instead of a cap of $ 925,000, it would have a cap of $ 1.49 million

It might sound strange, but there is an explanation and it has to do with the Canucks using the LTIR for Micheal Ferland.

Here’s the problem: When a team uses the LTIR to call up players and exceed the salary cap, they must have enough relief to cover not only a called-up player’s salary, but also achievable performance bonuses.

Rathbone has a cap of $ 925,000 due to his base salary and signing bonuses, but he also has $ 850,000 in potential performance bonuses in his contract. This is not unusual for an entry-level contract.

While Rathbone may not earn any of his performance bonuses next season, if he is sent to the AHL and then recalled, the Canucks will need to have enough space to cover the full average annual value of his contract, including including his performance bonuses. This comes down to $ 1,491,667 according to CapFriendly.

It’s simply because the Canucks are using the LTIR. If the Canucks were under the salary cap without an LTIR, they wouldn’t have to worry about performance bonuses when calling a player.

If Rathbone starts the season with the Canucks, however, they don’t need to worry about his performance bonuses at all – this rule only applies to players called up after an injured player goes to LTIR.

Even if Rathbone gets his performance bonuses, which would push the Canucks above the salary cap, they could push those bonuses back into the next season, as they did for Pettersson and Hughes.

Clear as mud? Don’t worry too much: just know that it’s a good reason to keep Rathbone in the NHL to start the season.

The Joker: Quinn Hughes

There’s another wildcard possibility: What if all three Juolevi, Rathbone and Hunt were part of the Canucks’ opening night roster?

There are several ways that could happen. One relates to injuries, whether to defenders on the left side or the right side – Hunt has played on the right side before. While the Canucks sustain a few injuries on defense, none of those three defensemen need to be sent to the AHL immediately.

The other possibility, God forbid, is that Quinn Hughes has yet to sign at the start of the season.

Keep in mind that holding on is pretty much the only lever Hughes has. He is not allowed to sign an offer sheet and he has not been able to file a request for salary arbitration. If he’s not happy with the contract offers he’s getting from Caanucks, his only option is not to sign them and not play.

That would mean Oliver Ekman-Larsson climbs into the first pair on the left side and two from Rathbone, Juolevi and Hunt on the second and third pair, with the last player in the press box.

Is this likely to happen? Probably not, but there could be some nervous nights if the Canucks enter training camp without Hughes and Pettersson signing.

New lease renews hopes for Nanaimo-Vancouver fast ferry

Port of Nanaimo and Snuneymuxw Announce Agreement with Financial Partner

A new lease was announced today for a high-speed pedestrian-only ferry service from Nanaimo to downtown Vancouver.

A joint Nanaimo Port Authority and Snuneymuxw First Nation press release on Thursday, September 16, announced the agreement with Conqora Capital Partners for a long-term lease providing access to the Nanaimo Assembly Wharf for ferry stations, terminal and parking.

The press release did not announce a timeline and said more details would be provided “in the near future.”

Conqora CEO Rupesh Amin said his company was excited about the potential of its partnership with the Port Authority and the First Nation and said high-speed ferry service between Nanaimo and Vancouver would be significant “for the future of the province ”.

Port President Donna Hais said in the statement that a foot ferry is a “vital service” and said the lease announcement is made with “great pleasure … after many years of talking about fast passenger service to Nanaimo “.

Snuneymuxw Chief Mike Wyse said the First Nation’s working relationship with Conqora and the Port of Nanaimo is based on respect and recognition for the common good. He said a fast ferry is a “much anticipated” service in the region.

“We look forward to building on this momentum, building a stronger economy and a stronger foundation of respect and cooperation,” said Wyse.

Island Ferry Services has already signed rental contracts with the port authority in an attempt to launch foot ferry operations.

VANCOUVER –

A little over a week after the revelation of a “darling deal” in a major social housing project in Vancouver, the province promises to act with a deal to speed up construction.

According to the BC Ministry of the Attorney General, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been signed regarding the development of Little Mountain.

This memorandum of understanding was signed by the province, the City of Vancouver and Holborn Properties Ltd., the company that purchased prime land near Queen Elizabeth Park in 2008.

The province says the memorandum of understanding “aims to speed up construction” on the site, a 15-acre parcel of land purchased for $ 344 million.

At the time of its purchase, hundreds of low-income families were evicted and their homes destroyed. Holborn has promised to build more social housing on the land, but so far only a few dozen units have been built.

The contract, obtained by CTV News through the Freedom of Information process, shows the developer received a loan from the province of $ 211 million, interest-free until Dec.31, 2026.

The contract did not appear to have a clear deadline as to when the units were to be ready.

It was a contract described by David Chudnovsky, a former NDP MP for the region, as a “deal of hearts” and a “colossal failure”.

The deal was negotiated by the BC Liberals, who were in charge of the province at the time.

Attorney General and Housing Minister David Eby was quick to point out that the deal did not involve the NDP government in its MOU announcement on Friday.

“Enough is enough with the Little Mountain tragedy orchestrated by the previous government that resulted in the bulldozing of a low-income community, an interest-free loan of hundreds of millions of dollars and a huge wasteland growing weeds in the middle of a dwelling. crisis, ”he said.

He stopped criticizing Holborn, saying “we wouldn’t be here today” if the company hadn’t agreed to drop its lawsuit and make the contract public.

Eby called it a “good faith gesture”, which enabled a new deal, this time including a timeline. Holborn has until December 31, 2024 to prepare non-market housing.

When the contract was first secured, CTV News contacted Holborn Properties but received no response.

In a statement from the province on Friday, Holborn manager Joo Kim Tiah called the memorandum of understanding a commitment by all parties to “move quickly” to four non-commercial developments at the site.

When completed, the Little Mountain project will include 282 new social housing units, 10 of which will be for members of the Musquem Nation.

A rental project of 53 housing units for the elderly and people with disabilities opened six years ago, and a project of 62 housing units for families and older people is expected to be completed in winter 2022.

The site will also include a day care center, a neighborhood center and a public park. BC Housing will own 234 of the units, and the remaining 48 will be owned by the City of Vancouver.
