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.
BCSPCA letter and other information on dog killer Liz Summerfield here, here, here, and here.
Pet killer Kayla Bourque, who a judge has described as “psychopathic” and a “sexual sadist,” was arrested Thursday for allegedly breaching conditions of her release from jail.
In 2013, B.C. Corrections issued a rare public notification to alert the public that Bourque had been released from jail with plans to live in Vancouver.
Bourque has offended violently against both people and animals and is considered high risk to re-offend, according to the Ministry of Justice.
She was arrested in March 2012 after she boasted of disemboweling and dismembering her cat and told a friend she fantasized about shooting a homeless person or killing someone in residence at Simon Fraser University.
Reading this story about Bourque reminds me of two other dog killers, Brian Whitlock and Liz Summerfield.
Brian Whitlock was sent to jail for beating his dog and leaving him for dead in a dumpster in 2012. A couple of years later Whitlock was charged with murder of woman at her Dunbar home
The other dog killer, Liz Summerfield, escaped charges. She simply lied to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital when she told them the dog with her had been ordered by the Post Office to be put down because the dog had bitten a postal worker. The Post Office never ordered the dog put down.
Liz Summerfield had the family dog put to death during a series of court orders demanding she turn over to the divorce court bank records as to what she had done with the very large amount of money she’d removed from their joint accounts just prior to her filing for divorce. She refused to comply with any of the multiple court orders.
Liz had removed the dog from the family home prior to her husband being served divorce papers. She refused to allow him to see his dog or any of the other two dogs she removed. The dog she killed was a Rottweiler/German Shepard cross her husband had rescued from the New Westminster Animal Shelter.
Liz instructs children throughout the lower mainland of British Columbia including Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Maple Ridge, Port Moody, Whistler, Vancouver, in a variety of different art like puppetry, papier mache, heritage hat making, or other art forms. She may also be offering public speaking courses throughout the lower mainland.

Brian Whitlock, who was sent to jail for beating his dog and leaving him for dead in a dumpster in 2012, has been charged with the second-degree murder of his mother in the Dunbar area of Vancouver, BC, according to this CBC news report.
Whitlock beat his two-year-old German Shepard, Captain, and left him for dead in a Kitsilano dumpster. Whitlock, then 26, got a 60-day jail sentence and a lifetime ban on owning animals after pleading guilty to animal cruelty in the high-profile case.
Whitlock’s mental health was cited as a factor in the animal cruelty case. Medical records indicated he had been diagnosed with, and was being treated for, psychosis and schizophrenia during the year leading up to his sentencing.
During Sunday morning Brian Whitlock was being taken into custody and charged later in the day with second degree murder.
Elizabeth (Liz) Summerfield, who had her husband’s dog killed during divorce proceedings, simply lied to everyone and got away with murder.
During the divorce she took her husband’s dog, whom she had stolen from the matrimonial home, and went to the South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital where she told the vets the Post Office had ordered the dog be put down for biting a postman.
That was a lie, which the Post Office confirmed in conversation with the husband and the husband’s lawyer. The veterinary clinic never asked for any proof of such an order from the post office and never contacted the Post Office to confirm the order. They simply took the money and killed the dog. Killed an innocent animal. Here is link to letter for BSPCA written by husband’s lawyer.
Why would a wife murder an innocent animal during a divorce she initiated? Money.
Liz had removed a vast amount of money from their joint account prior to filing for divorce. Her financial records were sought by the judge to determine where that money had gone.
Instead of obeying any of the many court orders demanding she turn over her financial transactions Liz simply lied to the veterinary hospital and had her husbands dog killed. Perhaps she killed her husband’s dog, Punzhu, in order to force her husband to agree to her divorce demands? Perhaps she felt murdering his dog would end the divorce court judge’s demands for her bank statements? Whatever her reason for killing Punzhu her husband quickly agreed to her divorce demands, fearing what Liz might do to his son.
Liz teaches children in the lower mainland of BC including Coquitlam, Port Moody, Vancouver, Whistler, Burnaby, Port Coquitlam, Richmond, Delta and Surrey, and at various art festivals and holidays during the year held in various cities and municipalities, art and art related classes including puppetry (she removed all the family puppetry related property worth tens of thousands of dollars prior to filing for divorce, not including an almost brand new top of the line Chevrolet Suburban she also removed prior to filing for divorce), heritage hat making, and other arts and crafts instruction and/or sale of arts and crafts.
Parents should confirm who is teaching their children at any open function, like a festival or art class or other venue where their children are placed in a situation of trust, just as a matter of precaution. Liz may be a good instructor, but shouldn’t a parent want to know about someone teaching their children?
The City of Vancouver hired a Hells Angel without too much – if any – background check. Would you want your child taught by someone without a background check of any kind?
Here are two things you can do to begin protecting your son or daughter when he/she/they are away from you and in the care of another:
Is the name of the instructor provided in any printed or online material? No? Why not? Who is going to be the instructor? Never leave your children in the care of someone you know nothing about.
Have you personally checked the Internet for any mention of the name? The Internet is a quick and simple way to check for information about someone who may come into contact with your 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.
Several weeks ago local police contacted me regarding the articles I had written on my blog about my ex-wife who had my dog killed during the time the courts were hounding her for financial records concerning the large amount of money she removed from our joint account just prior to our divorce.
The police contacted me by email containing one sentence; “Could you please contact me, I need to speak with you regarding the postings that you have made that are directed towards Elizabeth SUMMERFIELD.”
I replied immediately asking what I could do for them. But after I sent the reply I thought, “This is likely a legal matter so the police should contact my lawyer.” (It never dawned on me right away that the police contacting me might be of some legal matter, so how bright am I?)
I then sent a second email stating, “Upon further consideration of your email please direct all further communication through my lawyer XXXXX regarding any legal matter and he will advise me.”
The police sent me a couple of more emails during the following days containing the exact same sentence as the first email.
I sent the officer an email stating, “On XXX, 2012, I replied to your email and requested you direct your communication on this matter to my lawyer, XXXXX.
On that same date I contacted XXXX regarding your email and its contents. Please direct your communications on this matter to XXXX.”
That stopped the emails from the police.
But what I find disconcerting for bloggers, particularly bloggers living in Canada, is that the police wasted time contacting someone who had broken no law, for the police would have surely done more than just want to talk to me if I had broken a law.
The articles I wrote were honest, truthful, and were done with the public’s interest at heart, for I strongly believe that parents should know who is teaching their children at art classes or at a workshop or a festival event.
Liz teaches children classes or workshops about papier mache, lantern making, puppetry, puppet making, and various arts and crafts related instructions in Port Moody, Coquitlam, Vancouver, Surrey, Whistler, New Westminster, and many other areas in the lower mainland of BC.
Some art groups, like Place des Arts in Coquitlam which is holding “Light up the Square: A Lantern Affair” this Christmas season, don’t always list who is instructing children, and so it is up to parents to verify who is teaching their child.
Particularly if the person teaching their child or children had deliberately lied to a vet in order to have an innocent animal killed during a period in the divorce proceedings in which that person had repeatedly refused to comply with multiple court requests to provide financial information on what she had done with all the money she removed from a joint account, just prior to her husband receiving the divorce papers.
Here is a link to the letter my divorce lawyer wrote to the BCSPCA after verifying the facts of the death of my dog.
For several years and numerous events for children The Port Moody Station Museum has hired a dog killer to teach children; a women who openly lied to a vet in order to have her husbands’ dog killed during her divorce and who repeatedly refused to obey court orders to explain what she had done with all the money she had removed from a joint bank account before she filed for divorce.
This past Easter The Port Moody Station Museum again hired this dog killer to teach children and parents how to build Easter hats.
In the coming months the Port Moody Museum or other organization in BC may well hire Liz Summerfield to teach children. Liz may be welcomed by various community centers, festivals and art camps to teach children, and parents may well want her to teach their children, moreover, even readers of this post may see nothing wrong with a woman who lies and kills an innocent animal teaching their children. I just feel that, as a public service to parents, they have the right to know something about the people who are teaching their children and I suggest parents Google the names of those teaching or instructing their children as a precaution.
