A long-serving member of the Aldergrove Legion and community passed away Friday.
Bob Brady passed away in a cabin while on a hunting trip with his family members near Princeton. Paramedics and police responded but were unable to revive him.

Police intelligence on heightened alert as recent high profile murders are apparently causing paranoia and chaos in ... - Voiceonline.comWednesday, November 30, 2016
IHIT announced that Jason Francis Wallace, 27, had been charged with second-degree murder in Green’s death. Police sources confirmed that Wallace was a member of the 856 gang that originated in Aldergrove. What is baffling is that the 856 group and the Hells Angels were cooperating with one another. In fact, according to one media report, Leonard Pelletier, who had been charged with drug trafficking along with Wallace in 2015, is Green’s cousin.
* Mohammad Rafiq, 44, associated to the Hells Angels’ White Rock Chapter, was shot shortly after 1 a.m. in the 6000-block of Broadway in Burnaby. He was located in a vehicle partially lodged inside a residence at the intersection of Broadway and Fell Avenue. He survived. CTV showed a high-powered rifle that was found at the scene.
* Shortly after 7 a.m., dismembered parts of a body that had been scattered in the 24300-block of Robertson Crescent were found. On October 28, police announced he was 27-year-old Shaun Alan Clary and was believed to have gang associations.

THE investigations are still ongoing into the high profile murders and at least one attempted murder that have rocked the Lower Mainland in the past month and a half as police try to figure out any connections between them. At this stage, there is nothing that can be publicly disclosed, police say.
However, there is one thing that they are sure of, and that is, as gang expert Staff-Sgt. Lindsey Houghton of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. put ...

Hells Angel Robert (Bob) Keith Green, 56, of Burnaby. Police sources confirmed that Wallace was a member of the 856 gang that originated in Aldergrove.Green was murdered in Langley on October 16. Langley RCMP received a report of suspicious circumstances in the area of 23700 72nd Avenue and found Green suffering from injuries consistent with foul play and IHIT was called in.What is baffling is that the 856 group and the Hells Angels were cooperating with one another.In fact, according to one media report, Leonard Pelletier, who had been charged with drug trafficking along with Wallace in 2015, is Green’s cousin.The VOICE reported last week: “Police sources emphasize that it is too early to speculate, but there could be any number of reasons. In fact, it might not even be gang-related; after all, fights have taken place in the past over a female.“It could be internal fighting among 856 gang members, or it could have been a fight between Green and the 856 group.”Police sources told The VOICE this week that just because all these incidents have taken place recently that does not mean that they are connected. That is because these gang members live a lifestyle of “unbelievably high risk” and so at any time they can become victims.
ON Wednesday (October 26), police received multiple calls of shots fired in the 6000-block of Broadway in Burnaby and located a vehicle partially lodged inside a residence at the intersection of Broadway and Fell Avenue. The lone occupant of the vehicle was transported to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.Occupants of the home were not injured as a result of this incident, but were severely shaken.“We are satisfied with the progress we are making on this investigation thus far,” said Sgt. Annie Linteau, Media Relations Officer, Lower Mainland District. “A number of police resources will continue to look at a possible motive for this incident and look at who could potentially be involved.”CTV showed a high-powered rifle that was found at the scene.Burnaby RCMP are asking anyone who may have any information about this incident to contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.

A reflective Father Bob Haggarty looks back on his time in Lillooet - Bridge River Lillooet NewsThursday, April 12, 2018
Originally from Alberta, Father Bob was ordained in 1971 as a priest in the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI). The Order was founded in 1816 and has had a presence in British Columbia since 1858. The apostolic Oblates focused on outreach to remote and/or wilderness areas, which B.C. was at the time of the Gold Rush. “The Oblates were there, right at the beginning of the colonization of B.C.,” adds Father Bob, who says those early priests were so young that they were described as altar boys. He can quote the early history of the Oblates in B.C. chapter and verse, but is also fascinated by Canadian military history. He says that’s related to one of his mother’s brothers, who went overseas with the RCAF during the Second World War and was killed in action. “My mother had all these letters and pictures but had no time to organize them. But I thought, ‘If we don’t value his contributions, who’s going to?’ He sacrificed his life for this country, so I felt I owed him that and so I took every photo and every scrap of paper and put them in order.” After he began living here, Father Bob became intrigued by the history of local veterans, particularly the “Boys of Lillooet” whose names are inscribed on the cenotaph on the lawn outside the District Office. “I said to myself, ‘Who are you? Who are you?’” He then spent years researching their lives and eventually produced two volumes (World War One and World War Two) of priceless biographical material - old black and white and sepia photos, precious personal letters written from the front lines, military records and his own conversations with their siblings and other family members - that preserves the memory of the “Boys of Lillooet” for posterity. “Those fellows grew up here, lived within a five or 10-mile radius of downtown Lillooet and they never came back,” he says softly. “I thought they should be remembered and we should be proud of them.” Father Bob believes “history is made up of local people. It’s more than what Prince Charles has done. It’s people who are walking down the street. There’s history there, too.” He continues, “And it’s a good story if you go back and find out what happened. I remember hearing an interview with Mark Forsythe on the CBC and he was coming to Lytton for a public forum on the Gold Rush. It was also about the opening up of the Lillooet area and it was an eye-opener, too. I believe in history and I like to know history. I think the history of Lillooet makes you appreciate the place where you live. And for visitors, so much of B.C.’s history took place within a half mile of here.” He says, “Sometimes I’ll go down to Seton Lake and just sit there and I’ll ask people who are visiting for the day if they know where they are and what happened here. It makes it more interesting for them if they know some of the local history.” Father Bob acknowledges he’s “dealing with the reality of being a senior” and some health challenges involving his eyesight, but hopes to continue living here. “Why would I want to leave Lillooet?” he asks. “The environment here...

Community mourns doctor who put focus on health care in the north - CBC.caThursday, April 12, 2018
A doctor who spent decades working to improve health care in northern British Columbia is being mourned after he died Tuesday night.Dr. Bert Kelly was a "tireless champion for health care" said Prince George city councillor Susan Scott, who announced his passing via Facebook.Kelly was a key architect of the Northern Medical Program, in which students in UBC's medical program are trained in northern B.C. in an effort to help recruit and retain future medical professionals in a region that historically has been underserved.Faced with chronic doctor shortages in Prince George and the surrounding area, Kelly helped lead a local group of physicians and specialists in what was effectively a strike in 2000, withdrawing non-essential services until the province agreed to commit more funding and efforts to recruitment and retention of doctors in the north. By 2004 the Northern Medical Program was opened, with Kelly serving the role of Executive Director of the Northern Medical Society.Truly sad this morning at the loss of Dr. Bert Kelly! He wa...
