A dog killer is teaching children in New Westminster and surrounding municipalities/cities as recently as this month. Parents should be aware of who is teaching their children or coming in contact with their children. Few if any publicly funded art groups, art councils, festival organizations or civic groups take the time to vet those hired or volunteering to come in contact with children or the public.
While arts councils and the general public may not think there is anything wrong hiring a dog killer to teach children it is up to each parent to decide who teaches their children.
It only takes a few seconds to check the Internet for information on someone coming into contact with your child or children.

According to the Vancouver Sun, B.C. Corrections has issued a public notification after a pet-killer, described by a judge as a “psychopathic and narcissistic … sexual sadist,” was released from jail with plans to live in Vancouver.
Kayla Bourque, 23, has “offended violently against both people and animals and is considered high risk to re-offend,” according to the notification by the Ministry of Justice, but Kayla isn’t the only dog killer roaming the streets of the lower mainland.
There is another dog killer, and she could be teaching your children at any of the local art councils events, library events, festivals, art camps, or schools in Burnaby, Coquitlam, Vancouver, Maple Ridge, Port Moody, Surrey, Langley, North or West Vancouver, or perhaps Whistler.
Did you enroll, or are thinking of enrolling, your child in a puppet making or puppetry class, papier mache, lantern making, or other arts related event at Place des Arts in Coquitlam, Surrey, Burnaby, New Westminster, or other lower mainland locale?
How do you do if your child is being taught by a dog killer or other person whose values you may question? Some municipal districts or art-related public institutions hide who is instructing your child; they don’t list who the instructor is, or, as Place des Arts in Coquitlam does, lists an instructor as TBA or TBD.
Parents should make every effort to protect their children from coming into contact with questionable instructors by finding out who is teaching their children before enrolling their child.
Phone the people hosting the event and ask the name of the instructor, and then check that name on the Internet.
The B.C. Ministry of Justice issued a warning about Kayla Bourque, and now I’m warning you about another dog killer.
This other killer of an innocent animal simply lied to a veterinarian during a time the courts were hounding her to disclose what she had done with a very large sum of money she had taken from the joint bank account prior to filing for divorce.
This other dog killer simply told the vet the post office ordered her to put the dog down because it had bit a mailman. This was the lie. No one at the post office ordered the dog put down, and the veterinarian clinic, The South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital, never asked for any written confirmation of order. They simply accepted the lie without question.
The name of the other dog killer teaching children in the lower mainland of BC is Liz Summerfield, who may use her maiden name Liz Gray as lawyers’ letter to BCSPCA indicates, and I urge parents to confirm who is teaching their child or children whenever the instructor is listed as TBA or TBD or not listed at all.
