"Well then," Stark called back, "I guess I'll make the six o'clock news.
He stood behind a truck, refusing to move despite warnings from a flag girl that the driver couldn't see him.

"It opened its mouth and stepped towards what it figured was its real dinner. The hen flew into a tree. The rooster joined it. You should have seen that coyote's face," recalls Stark. "It had to be thinking what an idiot I am. It was like one of Aesop's fables."
"We were disappointed to see so much broken asphalt and concrete. We only found out it was there in 2010 a year after the initial path was completed when trucks came back. One day, I found two and a half feet of road bed behind my fence. They were putting the crush on the path to pave it. It would have been two feet higher than it is today.
TransLink built it for the city during the Golden Ears Bridge project. Bark mulch would have been more permeable, says Stark, but an ecological assessment that might have suggested that, wasn't done.
The subject of frogs comes up again. Before the bike path, Stark recalls, "the croaking was so loud people closed their windows at night."
"What's happened here is an environmental disaster, a travesty," Stark says.
"They [the city] said the path was an add on to the bridge project, and didn't need a study.

Stark's not sure anyone's listening, but hopes the city will create Silver Nike Air Presto a ditching system to drain the hillside and connect it to holes punched through to the slough. Water trickles through some existing pipes; others, above the water level, are dry.
Drainage problems for Wildwood residents remained. Stark says the compacted path acts like a dam preventing water from running off to the slough.
Pheasants sound like spikes pried from planks with a crowbar. Mike Stark of Pitt Meadows remembers the calls in the Katzie Slough wetland behind his house on Wildwood Crescent.
