    Mt. Seymour’s ‘Second Pump Peak’ is now officially named Tim Jones Peak: http://apps.gov.bc.ca/pub/bcgnws/names/69741.html

    “After Tim Jones (1956-2014), paramedic, team leader and spokesman of North Shore Rescue Team, widely regarded for making significant contributions to search and rescue efforts in B.C. He was a tireless advocate for the team, where he began volunteering in 1987, and ensuring search and rescue operations in B.C. had ongoing, stable funding. He was awarded the Order of British Columbia in 2011, Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and an honorary doctorate from Capilano University in 2012, in recognition of his volunteer work. Tim Jones devoted countless volunteer hours to saving and recovering lost visitors in Mount Seymour Park as well as other north shore parks and mountains. This peak had special meaning to Tim Jones and his family as one of his favourite places to hike with his dog Abby.”
