Left at the Valley

On Sunday July 10, 2016, I was a guest on another Radio program, but this time with a bit of a difference.  This show was not a program devoted to the Sasquatch question, nor cryptozoology in general.  It was a program for skeptics.  Most often they go after religious subjects but this time the host is a man who thinks it is possible he encountered a Sasquatch himself back in November 2008.   I know him Steenburg BC file #10167?   I think I was able to surprise them.  Enjoy…

John Green

It is with great sadness I announce the passing of my long time friend and mentor, John Willison Green. John passed approximately 2am Saturday , May 28, 2016.  At the request of his family, we delayed announcing anything until after his obituary was seen in the Vancouver press;  as seen below.

 

GREEN, John Willison
Journalist, researcher, and community leader, John Willison Green passed away May 28, 2016 in Chilliwack, at age 89. Predeceased by his beloved wife June, brother Lewis, and one grandson, he is survived by children Marian (John), Margaret (Ken), Jim, Kathryn (Ray), and Raymond (Louise), thirteen grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. Raised in Vancouver, John loved building and racing sailboats. A graduate of UBC, he received his M.A. in Journalism from Columbia University in New York at age 20. He met June while in the Navy, and they married in 1948, living in Toronto, Vancouver, and Victoria, before moving to the Agassiz-Harrison area, where they raised their children and published the local newspaper for many years. His editorial writing was recognized with national awards. John volunteered for many community activities, including the Chamber of Commerce, Senior Citizens Housing, Harrison Hot Springs Fire Department, Boy Scouts, Search and Rescue, the Lions Club and the Historical Society. He served several years on the Harrison municipal council, including two as mayor. He was responsible for the construction of the Harrison lakefront beach, where he spearheaded the World Championship Sand Sculpture Competition for many years. He was also active in politics at the provincial level. His lobbying efforts preserved the Kilby General Store at Harrison Mills as a dedicated heritage site. John was well known as a serious investigator and best selling author on the topic of the Sasquatch. In 2000, John was recognized as B.C. Senior of the Year, and more recently he was honoured at several public gatherings for his community service, research work and writing. A private family celebration of his life will be held.

Educating The Public

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Twice this past September, I was asked to speak to the Public about my life of researching this on going mystery.  I often get such requests from schools, Libraries, and outdoor adventure groups.  I always try to accommodate such requests as I feel, especially today, that there is so much bad information in a field of study which for the most part more resembles an asylum being run by the inmates than a serious study of whether or not our forests are home to a ongoing species of large primates. The first was held at the Chilliwack Public Library on September 26, 2015 at 1 pm.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThere was a lack of  advertising for this event, and I also failed to mention anything about it  on this blog site, which some of my friends pointed out to me,  but about 25 people did attend.   A few days later, I gave a similar presentation at a church for the ladies of the ‘Women’s Probus Club of White Rock & South Surrey’.   About 100 ladies attended this event, many of which afterward wanted to talk about Sasquatch incidents they were aware of from friends and family members in their past.   A little rushed for time but I think they all found it interesting.

Really had to watch my language, though.

Are Stick Structures Evidence of Sasquatch?

This video was was made during the Easter long weekend of 2015.  It has already drawn angry responses on youtube, by self-deluded individuals who prefer to attack myself personally, rather than offer any counter-argument.

Just for the record, I am not stating that all such evidence is nonsense.  I am just saying that, in 37 years of investigation, so far I have not found any evidence of Sasquatch being involved in any stick structure that I have seen.  Nor do I see evidence in the vast number of other investigations done by researchers who assume a Sasquatch is responsible.

You need evidence to make such a statement, and so far all I see is personal opinions, and wishful thinking.

REMEMBERING RENE DAHINDEN

Rene was Rene. That really, in a nutshell, was the only way to describe the man.  We were good friends – I loved the guy.  So, when I was asked about him during a recent outing, the memory came back of two trips with Rene, in the same general area that we were now standing.  I was much younger then and at times my inexperience would show.  Something Rene would never, and I mean NEVER, fail to point out!

Rest in peace, my friend – I miss you.
