Hiker dies in Squamish 

A Squamish man is dead after falling during a hike in the Stawamus Chief Provincial Park. A 24-year-old, Benjamin Eric Demenech, was pronounced dead on the scene after falling in the area known as Sheriff’s Badge on June 3.

Search and Rescue Teams from Squamish and Coquitlam — who were training in the area when the call went out — faced rugged terrain to get to the area about 1 km off Highway 99.

Police are still investigating, but suspect no foul play.
