Teachers to take strike vote Union unhappy with pace of negotiations Katie Bartel The Progress If B.C. teachers vote in favour of going on strike, students will not be immediately affected, said the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president. “What we want out of the strike vote obviously is what every union wants: to increase pressure,” said CTA president Katharin Midzain. The B.C. Teachers Federation (BCTF) announced earlier this week that if no progress is made in collective bargaining in the next two weeks, the union will hold a strike vote between June 24 and June 28. If passed, job action could begin on September 6, the first day of school. The first phase of the strike would include a reduction in administrative and ministry mandated services, such as supervision at recess and before and after school supervision. Teachers would also not attend any administrative meetings, and if job action continued into November, report cards would not be distributed. In-classroom and extracurricular activities, however, will not be affected, said Midzain. “We will still be teaching and teachers will still meet with parents when they feel they need to. The communication with parents will be ongoing according to what the teacher feels is needed, but it won’t be ministry mandated and it won’t be administration mandated.” Collective bargaining between the BCTF, provincial government and local school boards began in March.

entering any of the three homes at risk. She said the city has been told by flood specialists that armoring a river bank against the force of a direct river current is an “exercise in futility,” and cited the example of the Island 22 campsite that was lost to erosion when the river changed direction. The mayor couldn’t say why the change in direction occurred at Ballam Road, but residents there speculated that gravel removed from the river last year near Jesperson Road was to blame. But Chilliwack MLA John Les, an advocate of gravel removal for flood protection, said a hydrologist studies each removal site before it is approved.

“I really don’t think that (gravel removal) altered the course of the river, or would have,” he said, in a telephone interview Wednesday. Les, the former mayor of Chilliwack, said residents living outside the dike are in a “nebulous” area where government jurisdiction is not “well-defined,” so it’s not clear who is responsible for maintaining river banks. However, he said when he was mayor in the late ‘90s “I recognized the danger of just allowing this (bank erosion at Ballam Road) to proceed unchecked, so I spent some city money, a bit of an investment to help preclude more serious erosion.” Continued: FLOOD/ p13

Trustees urged to leave hiring decisions to staff Katie Bartel The Progress A University of the Fraser Valley professor is cautioning Chilliwack school trustees not to micromanage district staff. Sheryl McMath, professor with the teacher education program at UFV, who teaches a class on governance and social reform, said a recent proposal to give trustees more authority to hire administrative staff could be viewed as micromanaging. Policy 300 currently states that the board is in charge of hiring the superintendent. The hiring of assistant superintendents, secretary treasurers, directors, principals and vice-principals is also made by the board on the recommendation

of the superintendent. All other district-level supervisors and managers are selected solely by the superintendent. Trustee Heather Maahs, who has expressed concern with the amount of senior staff who have left the district in the last two and half years, wants that changed. She wants the board to be in charge of hiring all administrative staff. “When we have that many people changing all at once, it is a bit alarming,” she said. Two assistant superintendents have retired, a secretary treasurer, who lived in Mission, took a position in Abbotsford last August, the director of finance, who’s been with the district for more than 10 years, resigned as a result of the district’s recent restructuring in operational

leadership, and most recently the superintendent announced her retirement for November. “When we have had so many people leaving, you have to ask what’s going on, what are the problems, what can we do to fix them?” said Maahs. She believes putting more hiring control into the hands of trustees is the first step. She also believes the board should hold off on hiring a new superintendent and “let trustees hold down the fort.” But according to the school act legislated by the B.C. Ministry of Education that is not the role of the board. The School Act states that trustees are responsible for setting and maintaining the district’s budget, and for hiring the superintendent.

The superintendent, who has expertise in education, is responsible for advising trustees on decisions needing to be made within the district and for implementing what trustees want in the district. “The school act is really clear that the superintendent is the one implementing the will of the board so the board can be focused on making the best decisions for their community and listening to the members of their community – that’s the focus of the school board,” said McMath. “Trustees don’t necessarily have the expertise for hiring a whole variety of administrative staff… you need someone with a background in education to be hiring those kinds of people.” As well, putting more hiring

responsibilities on trustees could slow down school district operations. “The thing that has to be kept in mind is that the board of trustees only meet a certain number of times throughout the year,” said McMath. “Unless they’re planning to add on three or four meetings per month, I just don’t think they have the time to be doing the work of the superintendent. There are too many decisions to be made in short periods of time. Trustees are the ones who make the decisions, not the ones who implement the decisions. If they try to take on both roles, somewhere one of them is going to suffer.”

Swearing-in a ‘whirlwind experience’ for new MP Robert Freeman The Progress Getting elected to federal office is one thing, but the whole process afterwards of being sworn-in, of finding a place to live in Ottawa and of learning the rules of Parliament is a whole different matter. “It’s been a whirlwind experience already,” Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl said in a telephone interview last Wednesday, just after his swearing-in ceremony in Ottawa. “It was pretty emotional,” he agreed. During the campaign, Strahl often spoke about his feeling that serving his country was “something I felt called to do, compelled to do,” he said. “But to be there, swearing allegiance to the Queen… it’s a pretty powerful thing to join the ranks of those who have served in that capacity before.” Strahl’s father, Chuck, served as the MP for Chilliwack for 17 years, and no doubt some of the political savvy he learned during that time was passed on to his son. Some of which came in handy as newly elected MPs went through an “orientation” session last week to get them up to speed for the next sitting of Parliament on June 2. “I think I had a leg up on most of my new colleagues,” Strahl agreed, about the orientation sessions, but he added that he still must prepare himself by studying a “thousandpage book” on House of Commons procedures.

The fundraiser was initiated by the Yarrow Volunteer Society as a community sponsorship program with the City of Chilliwack to cover the costs of a six figure shortfall intended for the renovation of the downtown park. For keener celebrators, the day starts off with the Yarrow Fitness Fun Run at 7:30 a.m. in front of Yarrow Station. It’s $5 per person to participate with proceeds going towards Teen Challenge. After the Saturday morning parade, there will be a soapbox derby starting at the Canadian Reformed Church parking lot. All afternoon there will be a variety of performances on a main stage set up in Yarrow Park. Performances from Chilliwack secondary students

will include R&B, steel drums and a dixieland band. Other day-long festivities will include artisan tables displaying homemade items like pottery, jewelry and soaps. There will also be crafts and kids activities Saturday evening there will be a barbecue pig roast and dance at the community centre at 7 p.m. featuring music from Trevor McDonald. The dance is for people 19 years and older and tickets can be purchased for $20 at the Yarrow Deli. Events will wind down Sunday with a Church in the Park service at 10 a.m. All are welcome and in the event of rain, service will be held at the Yarrow Mennonite Brethren Church (41995 Yarrow Central Rd.).

Three businesses located in a strip mall near the intersection of Vedder Road and Knight Road in Sardis were hit by thieves early Saturday morning, police say. The Chicken Time Restaurant, First Choice Haircutters and a “relatively vacant” office owned by the Langbroek, Louwerse & Thiessen accounting firm were found with windows broken or locks pried when police arrived just after 1 a.m. But only the restaurant reported anything missing, a cash box with an undisclosed amount of money. RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth asked the public to keep their eyes open at night when businesses are closed, and report any suspicious activity to police. “The theft and the damage caused from break-and-enters not only cost money for business owners, it also causes them grief,” she said. Anyone with information about the breakins is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.

Local Liberal election team seen as a model for party’s re-building Robert Freeman The Progress The Liberal Party of Canada is starting to rebuild after the drubbing it took in the last federal election – and apparently using its ChilliwackFraser Canyon riding association as a model. Top party brass will meet with 36 B.C. riding presidents, candidates, campaign managers and official agents during a three-day meeting of the BC Federal Liberal Council

at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort starting Friday. “During a difficult election, the team in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon put together a cohesive, well-run campaign,” Craig Munroe, president of the party’s B.C. branch, said in a news release announcing the council meeting. “Their website, fundraising, social media, teleforum, voter ID and advertising performances caught the attention of several in the party at the national and provincial offices,”

he said. Diane Janzen, the Liberal candidate in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon, was one of only 22 across the nation who gained votes over the party’s performance in the 2008 election, he said. While Liberals lost an average of 7.3 per cent in riding voting results compared to 2008, Munroe said the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon Liberals “bucked the trend by gaining 2.3 per cent.” “In fact, (Janzen’s) campaign was

the ninth most-improved out of 308 ridings,” he said. Jeremy Sibley, president of the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon association, could not be reached for comment Wednesday, but in the release said that he was “proud of the work” done by Janzen and the local campaign team. “The riding was successful in swimming upstream,” he said. “While we would have liked to have seen a different outcome, we are happy to have more support today than in

HIRING from p3 Last year micromanagement was cited as a fault by the Ministry of Education in its 97-page audit report on the failings of the Vancouver school board. In that report, it was recommended trustees limit consultation with teachers, parents and students, and focus more on increasing school district revenue. “The recommendations that came out of that report was scary stuff,” said McMath. “I would be hesitant of any board of trustees to be setting themselves up to possibly being attacked like that. “The best situation for the board of trustees is to have confidence in their superintendent and their administrative staff to be able to make those daily decisions,” said McMath. Policy 300 is currently sitting with the district’s policy planning committee for review.

the past.” Janzen said in the release that she believes the council meeting here is “an encouraging sign” the party is recognizing the importance of “rural/suburban ridings like Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon as a vital building-block of its future in Western Canada.” The president of the federal Liberal Party, Alfred Apps, is scheduled to attend the meeting in Harrison Hot Springs.

Critical of the BC Public School Employers Association (BCPSEA) for “stalling” the BCTF is seeking improvements to wages, benefits and working conditions, including class size and composition, a reduction in case loads, more class preparation time and improved learning specialist ratios. With the pressure of a strike vote, “we’re really just looking at making the public and negotiating teams understand that we do have serious issues and we need to be listened to,” said Midzain. “We’re standing up for teachers because when we do, we’re also standing up for students.” However, BCPSEA disagrees that job action is necessary to spur talks as 15 bargaining meetings have been scheduled. “It’s disappointing to have talk of a strike and job action when bargaining, per se, hasn’t really taken hold, and you have to question is this more of a positioning exercise and political exercise than a bargaining one,” said Hugh Finlayson, CEO of the employers’ association. Finlayson said it’s possible a contract resolution could be reached by the end of June but only if both sides “put their attention to bargaining.” The current contract, which was negotiated in 2006, expires on June 30. ~with files from Diane Strandberg kbartel@theprogress.com

Two rings snatched as store clerk looked away A man who snatched two rings from a jewelry store in the Cottonwood Mall is being sought by the Chilliwack RCMP. The man had been looking at rings in the Michael Hill Jewelers store, and when the clerk bent down to put one tray of rings away, grabbed two rings from the counter and fled the store on foot. The suspect is described as a white man, about 25-30 years old, about 5’11” tall with a small build. He was wearing dark blue jeans, a shiny, black, zip-up coat with cloth sleeves. One of the rings, a diamond ring, is valued at $3,800. A description of the second ring was not available.

Catching Canuck fever It’s been more than a week since the Vancouver Canucks last played a hockey game. It’s been 17 years since they last played in the Stanley Cup final. In their 40-year history, they’ve never won hockey’s biggest prize. Now, the wait is over. The Canucks have opened their best-of-seven championship series against the Boston Bruins, and they’re the favourites. That’s the mantle that was bestowed upon them by many hockey insiders before the season began. That’s the promise they carried with them while compiling the best record through the NHL’s regular season. That’s the momentum that propelled them to a quick three-game advantage over the despised Chicago Black Hawks in the opening round of the playoffs. Then the cracks started fracturing the Canucks’ supposed cloak of superiority. Roberto Luongo stumbled. The Sedins seemed to lose their scoring touch. The bounces started to go against them. Memories of past disappointments began to haunt even the most faithful fans. But the boys in blue and green were steadfast in their belief in themselves. They prevailed in heart-stopping fashion over Chicago. They persevered over the feisty, hard-working upstarts from Nashville. They dispatched San Jose with aplomb and a little help from a very fortuitous bounce. With each win and every goal, the Canucks’ confidence has grown, their resolve has hardened. The celebratory din from Rogers Arena, the cheers from crowds gathered on Granville Street, the whoops of joy from open windows have muffled the doubters, silenced the cynics. The Canucks are in the Stanley Cup final and it’s hard not to smile about that. Everyone seems to have an extra spring in their step. Not even the interminable greyness of this non-springlike weather is bringing people down. After all, who wants to be outside when there’s some beautiful hockey being played indoors. ~ Black Press

Selling the new HST to the ‘me’ generation VICTORIA – Even if all you care about is your own wallet, the harmonized sales tax just became an offer you shouldn’t refuse. Premier Christy Clark promised a “bold” fix for the HST, and she delivered. For months I have been arguing that the only way to overcome the wave of rejection caused by the panicked introduction of the HST is to offer a rate cut. I expected one per cent. Now if you vote to keep it, a second one-per-cent reduction will be largely financed by reversing some of the B.C. Liberals’ business tax cuts of recent years. It not only sweetens the deal for consumers, it’s great politics. First, let’s look at it from a selfish, short-term perspective, the way some readers loudly remind me they view the world.

If you only care about yourself, you won’t care Tom about the loss of FLETCHER HST credits to the poorest people in B.C. You won’t care about the province repaying Ottawa’s transition fund, or rebuilding a B.C. sales tax department to force business to convert their billing systems again. You won’t care about the competitive advantage given to Ontario, unless it costs you your job. When the B.C. government of

the day has to cut services to pay for this disastrous reversal, you’ll denounce them for doing what you told them to do. You will get the government you deserve, which may include a PST extended to restaurant meals or haircuts, because the money has to come from somewhere. When Clark’s HST “fix” was unveiled, it was the NDP’s turn to panic. They have painted themselves into a corner, and now face the prospect of arguing for a return to an archaic sales tax with a higher rate. And once again, Bill Vander Zalm and Chris Delaney tour B.C. in their Fight HST conspiracy clown car, refueled by $250,000 of public funds to campaign in the referendum. Their campaign of fear and ignorance is encountering heavy resistance at university and col-

lege campuses, however, as tax experts fact-check their claims on the spot. (They’ve added “rallies” in an effort to keep fear alive.) Delaney still raves about Europe being the cause of all this alleged human misery with their insidious Value Added Tax. Vander Zalm continues to mutter about a plot to establish world government through carbon taxes and the HST. It would be nice if the NDPFight HST crowd were concerned about the wave of retiring baby boomers that is starting to wash across the country. But they’re not. There are changes happening now in the B.C. economy that 1960s socialism and 1980s populism are not equipped to handle. The living standard of our children is going to be determined

Fourteen months ago I wrote that more U.S. states are joining Washington, Hawaii and others with sales taxes on services as well as goods. Robert Kleine, treasurer for Michigan, explained it this way: “The basic thing is that we need to update our tax structure.

Students demonstrate courage Re: Eyes on the Prize, four-part series in the Chilliwack Progress I have to tell you that I have been so moved by this series. We so seldom hear of such courage and determination as that which you have shared in these stories. The life of Sebastian White parallels many youngsters but his determination to not give up and settle for what could have been so disastrous to his future touched my heart. It made me want to do

something! Something to let him know how proud I am of him. I don’t know this young man but I congratulate him. And I congratulate you on being able to introduce him to us with your very potent article. You have shown a depth of feeling for all these young people that you have brought to the attention of your readers and I am looking forward to reading about the fourth one (published

May 31) and sorry that it will be the last one. To all those youngsters who struggle with life to such a degree and yet have that sense of hope and the guts to follow their dream, we should be thankful. I hope too, and I pray that their hopes and dreams will be fulfilled as they journey on through their lives. Thank you for this series and the way you handled it.

paigns can hire professional people, the NDP generally must make due with volunteers and many small donations. A case in point is this recent campaign in Chilliwack/Fraser canyon. While Gwen had spent a year knocking on over 11,000 doors, her successful Conservative candidate undoubtedly did none of that. While Gwen was the only candidate to attend all nine public events and candidate meetings, her Conservative opponent skipped out on six. It seems that his last name recognition meant more to many people than his lack of experience, his unwillingness to attend all-candidate meetings or his almost complete lack of door-knocking to prove his worth. His disregard for that honoured “demo-

Voters get what they deserve After over a year of concerted work and commitment to this recent federal campaign, I am personally very glad that it is over. I can finally get back to some sense of normalcy in my life. The same could probably be said for Gwen O’Mahony; as she has worked long and hard for over a year in running as your candidate. This has meant much sacrifice for her, in her regular job, in her personal finances and on her two girls who have rarely seen her for the past six weeks. Most people have no concept at all of the sacrifices that many NDP candidates make to be your candidate. While most Conservative and Liberal candidates are supported by wealthy individuals who make sure that their cam-

graphic tradition” of responding directing to the constituents meant little in the long run as he more than doubled Gwen’s support. It is traditional for political pundits to say that “the electorate is always right”. Well, I don’t agree with that statement at all. Even though I am not speaking for either Gwen or for the NDP, but only as an individual, I firmly believe that the electorate this time has made a huge mistake. I understand that, nationally, many people have bought into the Conser vative propaganda of “it’s the economy” and “beware of the NDP bogeyman”; the simple facts remain that in B.C. at least, many people have failed to make a detailed analysis of party policies and

have failed miserably to make Harper accountable for all of the unethical things that he has done over the past five years. We are now faced with a majority government that can bring forth radical policies that will hurt most Canadians in the long run. I rarely make predictions; but, I will predict that, within three years, many people who voted Conservative will be crying in their beer (or wine) and wondering how they got into such a mess. Well, “the people get the government that they deserve” and you have no one to blame but yourself. Mark my words.

Minister should say no to WTE I understand that the B.C. Minister of Environment, Terry Lake, will soon announce his decision on whether or not to allow a Waste To Energy (WTE) plant to be built either here in the Lower Mainland, or at a Gold River or a Campbell River location. No matter where such a plant might be located, people and animals somewhere will have to

inhale the minute but extremely toxic and uncapturable airborne particulates. Not only that, but these WTE facilities essentially burn or gasify recyclable materials and turn them into solid toxic and hazardous wastes, namely fly ash and bottom ash. It has been scientifically proven that these ashes cannot be made into or used for anything else, so no matter how

any ‘spin doctor’ might try to convince us otherwise, these ashes are what they are — forever. Let us hope, no, let us pray that our new environment minister makes the wise choice and says no to WTE, otherwise who knows how many deaths and/or permanent disabilities may eventually be on his hands?

Changes to the Harmonized Sales Tax will mean a total $470 in savings for the average B.C. family, says Chilliwack MLA John Les. “Every family in B.C. will be a net beneficiary of the HST,” he said - if British Columbians vote to retain the new tax in the June 24 referendum. The B.C. government is proposed to cut the provincial portion of the HST by one per cent on July, 1, 2012 and by another one per cent in 2014. To make up the lost revenue, the government proposes to increase the general corporate tax rate to 12 per cent from 10 per cent on Jan. 1, 2012 and postpone a planned 2.5 per cent cut in small business tax that was scheduled for April 1,2012. “It’s a balancing act,” Les

tax under the new system. “This latest gimmick is just more of the same,” he said in a news release. “The BC Liberals are also trying to tell you that the average family only pays $350 more per year under the HST, but they don’t tell you that they count one person as a family, artificially deflating the true numbers,” he said. “The truth is a two-incomeearning family with both members making $50,000 each – the average B.C. salary – will pay over $1,000 more per year under the HST,” he said. BC Conservative leader John Cummins also slammed the proposal, saying in a news release that the onetime rebate to families “does not immediately solve the problem of the tax not being revenue neutral for the next three years.” rfreeman@theprogress.com

agreed, but he said the business world is accepting the proposal as a “very acceptable compromise” to having no HST at all. “Even though we’ve increased the corporate tax somewhat and delayed the small business cut, we still have some of the lowest business taxes in the country,” he said. Les rejected the charge by New Democrats that the BC Liberals are trying to buy votes to ensure the HST passes the referendum. “What we’re putting forward is more tax relief,” he said. “What I don’t understand is why the NDP would be opposed to tax relief for seniors, families and children.” “I think this (proposal) puts the NDP in a very difficult position,” he said. New Democratic finance critic Bruce Ralston said no matter what the HST rate, British Columbians will still pay more

VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberal government has rejected an NDP request to extend the spring legislative session past this week, and pushed through its plan to offer a reduced rate for the harmonized sales tax. B.C. Liberal house leader Rich Coleman said the provincial budget and remaining legislation will be completed and passed by Thursday afternoon. That includes endorsement of the Yale

First Nation treaty, limits to ferry fare increases, creation of a new police investigation unit and dozens of minor amendments to legislation. Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson said Tuesday he plans to vote against the Yale treaty, partly because the government is pushing the disputed settlement of Fraser Canyon fishing territory through with only a few hours of debate. And the NDP says the B.C. Liberal government is using its majority to

ram through the HST changes with inadequate debate. NDP leader Adrian Dix said the government closed off debate on the HST plan in less than a day, and switched debate on Premier Christy Clark’s office budget to coincide with game one of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday, to distract the public from criticism. Coleman continued the hockey theme, accusing the NDP of “ragging the puck” after agreeing to debate all current leg-

islative measures by the scheduled adjournment on Thursday. NDP house leader John Horgan said the government’s reduction of legislature time is an affront to the citizens who elected MLAs to represent them. “We sat for four days the previous 10 months,” Horgan said. “We have a four-week session to deal with a $40 billion budget and a handful of bills at the start that turned into 15 bills, one of which is a treaty.”

Penner talks crime and punishment with Chamber Robert Freeman The Progress Twenty-three people are alive today because of

gate allegations of serious wrong-doing by the RCMP, a move he had suggested to local RCMP back in the late 1990s following controversy over police handling of an in-custody death in Chilliwack. Penner told the chamber members it has actually been illegal to drink and drive over .05 for 30 years, but drinking drivers didn’t lose their licence until they hit the .08 mark. Until that point, all they suffered was a 24-hour roadside suspension. “People were getting pretty casual about that,” he said. But now that licences are being lost at .05, the number of highway deaths attributed

to drinking drivers has decreased. “It looks like there are 23 people alive today in B.C. that would have been killed were it not for the new 0.5 penalty,” Penner said. There has also been a “dramatic drop” in the number of impaired cases going to provincial courts, he added. Impaired cases were taking up half the court’s time in Chilliwack, he said, and an average 33 per cent in other courts around the province. The proposed I n d e p e n d e n t Investigations Office was a recommendation from the inquiry into the tasering death of Polish immigrant Rober t Dziekanski by RCMP

of the mentally ill. Police investigators found no action while in custody that would have led to Ferguson’s death. But family and friends of Ferguson were not so sure. “People were wondering how thorough the (RCMP) investigation was,” Penner recalled. “There will always be some people who will be suspicious of that.” “I’m not saying anything untoward happened necessarily, but there was some perception amongst the public that they may not get an accurate account of what took place, if the police were left to investigate themselves,” he said.

The civilian-led IIO will be the “most independent model” in Canada, Penner said, and is supported by senior RCMP officials. Penner said he made a similar recommendation to Chilliwack RCMP officials in the late ‘90s after the local controversy over police handling of the in-custody death of 45-year-old Phil Ferguson.

Civilian oversight into police Murdered man a First Nations artist CIVILIAN from p10 But his suggestion at the time that an outside agency review the RCMP investigation was “not deemed necessary or acceptable,” Penner said. The new panel will also have civilian investigators. “The challenge, of course, is that some of these investigations can be quite complicated,” Penner said, and civilians might not have the expertise needed. Until civilian investigators can be

trained, former police officers will do “the ground-level investigations,” he said. “Over time, we hope to train up civilian investigators with the necessary expertise,” he said, to obtain the kind of evidence that will stand up in a court prosecution. The new legislation is expected to be passed by the legislature before the end of the summer, and the IIO in operation by the end of the year. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Kevin Mills Black Press A 43-year-old Hope man is in custody in connection with a weekend beating death. The victim, 67-year-old Kenneth Ronald Paquette, a local First Nations artist, was often seen selling his works in town, usually in front of the Hope Hotel.

Paquette was found on Friday afternoon by Hope RCMP when they were called to an assault at the Thunderbird Motel, on Flood Hope Road. He was rushed to hospital but succumbed to his injuries early Saturday morning. The RCMP located a suspect in the assault on Friday night. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was brought in Saturday morning to process

the crime scene. Investigators gathered evidence from the motel suite and presented their findings to Crown Counsel.

FLOOD from Front That investment apparently held until Sunday night when the bank finally collapsed. Resident Larr y Wigham suggested the city could have prevented the flood by acting sooner to shore up the bank when alerted by area residents. He suggested that residents living outside the dikes are getting short shrift from the city, unlike the days before amalgamation when the Township of Chilliwack delivered services. “If there was a little problem, they fixed it before it became a big problem,” he said, looking at the river now flowing over his land. “But after amalgamation, nothing gets done.” “All they want to do is keep building the dike higher and higher, and protecting all those guys over there,” he said. Les said residents living behind Chilliwack’s dikes should have no fear of flooding this year, but those living outside them may indeed be

in trouble if mountain snowpacks that feed the river melt too quickly in a sudden hot spell. He said the gap created by the collapsed bank at Ballam Road might be controlled using a “weir” system, but even that method may not be possible at this stage of the spring freshet. The Fraser River at full freshet is “an awesome force to behold,” he said, and can “scour holes as deep as 100 feet.”

Gaetz agreed that Chilliwack residents living behind the dikes should have no fear of a flood, but should always keep an eye on the river. Provincial officials estimate the Fraser will rise to six metres this year, but Chilliwack dikes are designed to hold back eight metres. The City starts a program of regular dike inspections when the river level hits 5.5 metres, which ramps up to daily inspections if

the level hits 6 metres. In 2007, the city spent $1.4 million to raise a wing dike from Young Road to the Island 22 boat launch, and used $3.7 million provided by the B.C. government to shore up sections of the east dike, the city’s main flood protection. Ballam Road residents may be eligible for funding from the Provincial Emergency Program, but officials were not available for comment by deadline Wednesday.

Marg Schulz: Passion for horses In the mid-sixties, a huge earthquake rocked Alaska. This sent a series of seismic waves along the West Coast of Vancouver Island, hitting Port Alberni late in the night. Fortunately, many citizens were alerted and evacuated, preventing any great casualties. Marg Schulz was just a little girl back then but she still recalls bits and pieces of that destructive tsunami. Marg was born to Dutch immigrants who had arrived in Canada in the 1950s, making their way to Port Alberni. Her father, along with four of his brothers, owned a successful cement plant in that community. The family worked hard and enjoyed the fruits of their labour. The family eventually left the Vancouver Island community and moved to Aldergrove then to Langley. Although her father had been a successful businessman, he had a Grade 6 education and given that he’d resolved to become a teacher, he headed back to college. During this time, Marg and her mother cleaned the Langley Advance and the Aldergrove post office to support the family. While living in Port Alberni, Marg took a shining to horses. Although she desperately wanted a horse of her own, she learned to ride on her cousin’s horses. “I wanted my own horse but my parents knew nothing about horses and weren’t prepared to let me buy one,” she said. When the family moved to the mainland, she saw an ad in the paper listing a pony for sale. “I saved my berry picking money

to pay for this pony and then cleaned dog kennels to pay for its boarding. Once I had all of that lined up, I cleaned the car and served my parents breakfast in bed – with the ad in hand, of course,” she smiled. Her parents relented and Marg bought her pony. “We stuffed the pony Ana and a bunch MACEDO of Dutch kids into our van and went home,” she laughed heartily. At the age of 14, Marg landed her first job. “I started working and Zellers and I just loved it. I could have stayed there until I died,” she laughed. “I loved making the announcements and being a cashier. They were going to put me through their management training program but I had to wait until I was 17 and when you’re a kid the wait seems like a lifetime.” Marg eventually left what she had thought would be a lifetime career and instead, got a job at the Old Dutch Bakery in downtown Chilliwack. “The Bank of Montreal was across the street from the bakery and after a while I decided that I’d like to be a banker. It looked like a glamorous job to me, after all, you got to dress up,” she chuckled. Marg dropped off her resume and every Friday she’d stop by to check in. “I did end up getting a job there. They were probably sick of seeing me every Friday and decided to give me the job,” she

laughed. Marg went on to work for the Bank of Montreal for the next five years. “After I had my son, I didn’t want to work full time but that’s all that they had available.” So, she left BMO and went to work for the Bank of BC where she remained, on and off, for the next 20 years. The one aspect of her job that she enjoyed the most was that of a mortgage broker and she eventually left the bank to pursue exactly that, something that she continues to do today. Although Marg is passionate about her career, she is equally consumed by her hobby. One of the first things that she did, along with husband Ron, was buy a farm and a horse. Then, the couple got into chuckwagaon and chariot racing; Marg would handle the chariots while Ron was into the chuckwagons. “There always seemed to be barrel racing at the events we were at and I thought that it’d be fun,” she said. One day, Ron lovingly brought home a ‘champion horse’ to surprise her. “He paid $800 for this ‘champion horse’,” she chuckled. He was a good horse, nonetheless and Marg has never looked back. She has not only been competing but managing the races as well. “I’ve been doing this now for 25 years. Time sure goes by quickly. I handle the barrel racing events but before that I was doing it for the

chariot and chuckwagon events. We also put on ‘grandstand events’ at the old fairgrounds which included barrels, chucks and chariots, roping, cattle penning, gymkhanas and that sort of thing. I suppose that what I love about doing this is the speed and the adrenalin. I also enjoy the friendships and camaraderie. These people become your family,” she explained. Her daughter Diana has always shared her parents’ love of horses and has been involved in the sport for as long as anyone can remember. Son Stephen, although a natural with horses, didn’t want to have anything to do with the family passion. Instead, he

Marg Schulz bought her first pony when she was a young girl. JENNA HAUCK/PROGRESS

decided to play hockey. “He even played rep hockey and we travelled everywhere. Between the horses and the hockey it’s a miracle that we were able to do what we did. We travelled

everywhere,” she said. Oddly enough, today, Stephen trains horses for chuckwagon racing. Marg is a real go getter and continues to demonstrate a certain intensity and commit-

ment to both her work and play. One day, though, she hopes to retire down in Arizona. Although riding into the sunset isn’t exactly her style, she may slow down just a little.

Home&Garden

Vertical gardens for tight spaces Smaller spaces, both for living and gardening, are today’s reality. Unfortunately many folks simply give up gardening and resign themselves to a small bit of grass or ground cover and the odd tree or shrub as their green space. I see this every day, and it is such a shame. Small spaces outdoors should be considered no differently than small spaces indoors. Today, in America more remodeling dollars are being spent on the ‘outdoor room’ than any other room in the home! The nesting trend has moved outside, and it now includes family and friends. It is the place folks want to be. Many design elements can be used to create magical outdoor spaces. From water and screen plants to architectural statues and vines, there are so many opportunities to create quite remarkable outdoor living areas. One element, however, that is too often overlooked is the vertical effect. If we can’t go out, we can most certainly go up! When I think of vertical plants, I think of the southern Italian countryside with its tall, narrow Italian cypress - they create magic by themselves! A vertical element, used appropriately in small areas, creates a unique dynamic. It provides a visual lift – optically, it expands a smaller area in a new direction. The more narrow the feature, the greater the effect. Tall, thin trees provide privacy, and they transfer eye focus in a very discreet way. There are some amazing plants that pull off this vertical effect very nicely and are not used nearly enough in our small or even larg-

er landscapes. One of my favourites is the tall, narrow Japanese Brian flowerMINTER ing cherry, Prunus serrulata ‘Amanogawa’ (zone 5). It has soft pink, semi-double, slightly perfumed flowers and grows from five to seven meters tall and only one to two meters

wide. I love the way it flowers from bottom to top for the most delightful effect. It’s quite a clean tree, free of most pests, and has beautiful fall colours. It also looks magnificent in winter with great erect vertical branches. There is now a more compact form on dwarf Giesela rootstock, making it even suitable for containers. Another favourite is the narrow form of the quaking aspen, Populus tremuloides ‘Erecta’ (zone 1). Its

tiny round leaves with slender compressed petioles cause the leaves to tremble with even the slightest air movement. The look and sound of this tree makes it invaluable. Its fall colour is brilliant yellow. In winter it provides attractive long grey catkins, and its grey-white bark looks great. This narrow Swedish aspen grows seven to ten meters tall and two meters wide and performs best in very well drained soil. Continued: MINTER/ p18

The decision to join Sure Slim changed my way of life for the better! I still walk slow because of my balance disorder hoewever with the increased energy I have I am walking further.

The soloist is flautist Sarah Dyck, who will be performing the Concerto for Flute in D Major by W.A. Mozart. She will be recognized by local audiences for her exceptional flute playing as she has been Principal Flute in a number of local orchestras and been with the CMO since it started in August 2008. The Chilliwack Metropolitan Youth Orchestra is also performing a matinĂŠe on the same day, at 2 p.m., also at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. This is a milestone for the youth orchestra and

c conductors David Voth and Trischa Buhler, and the matinee concert is in direct response to requests by local seniors for an earlier event. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a packed afternoon program with two soloists, Teigan Cosgrove, who will be performing the second movement from the Haydn Oboe Concerto, and Allan Meldrum, who will be soloing the first movement from the Haydn Piano Concerto in D Major. The orchestra will be performing excerpts from Beethovenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fifth, Brahmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hungarian

Dances, Mozar t Symphony No. 25 and the complete work by Jean Sibelius Finlandia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is another huge accomplishment for such a new orchestra and both the volunteer conductors and young musicians have been very dedicated to get to this level.â&#x20AC;? The CMO will be finishing the program with the Mozart Symphony No. 40. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The orchestra has developed to the level now that the finer nuances of playing Mozart are being conveyed to us by Maestro Louwersheimer and we are very fortunate to have a conductor who is has the ability, experience and education to help us do this.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ The CMO Principal Soloist Series, June 4, Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 7:30 p.m. $25.

the importance of how making healthy living habits a part of everyday life can make a positive impact on their overall health. This national event is free and runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the 45844 Hocking Ave. location. There will be a 9 a.m. pre-event Zumba party for those who are keen on getting active early on in the day, and a free veggie chili will be provided for lunch. Children aged five to 17 years should be getting at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity daily. Moderate activity is any kind of activity that will get the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart rate up and breathing rate increased, but not necessarily sweating. An example of this kind of exercise is bike riding or playing on a playground. Vigorous activity is an activity that gets the heart rate up with heavier breathing and sweat. Exercise that falls into this category would be running or swimming. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important

that children be participating in activities that help strengthen bones and muscles at last three times a week. This may sound like a lot, but these requirements can be easy to reach just by having children walk or bike to and from school, or by playing tag in the backyard. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the YMCA has set out to bring awareness and encourage families and show them fun unique ways of including regular physical activity into their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal this year is to broaden all participantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; awareness of the variety of aspects of health,â&#x20AC;? says Andrea Gieselman, manager of the YMCA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way that the event is set up this year is to focus on all aspects of health, because physical activity and proper nutrition are one aspect of health but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not exclusive to being healthy,â&#x20AC;? she says. Families need to be aware that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social, emotional, and environmental health to consider as well. Continued: ACTIVE/ p26

Karate for Canada as four head to Taiwan Four members from Chilliwack’s Valley Shidokan Karate have been selected to a Japanese Karate Association team that will represent Canada at the JKA’s world championships in Thailand this August. Team members include Valley Shidokan Sensei Don Sharp, joined by students Amanda Keriliuk (15), Zachary Charlton (13) and Jacob Maud (13). “The team members have worked hard in both competition and training to get to his level,” Sharp said. “It will be a long summer of rigorous preparation, but I know they will represent Canada well.” Sensei Sharp, fifth Dan, qualified to represent Canada in both kata (forms) and kumite (sparring). He is the only adult in B.C. who made the grade. In 1996, he joined Team Canada at this competition and brought home the gold medal in men’s kumite, the first non-Japanese champion in the history of

the tournament. Other Valley Shidokan students from the past have also brought home medals at the world competition level. As part of preparations for this event, Hirayama Sensei teamed up with Sensei Sharp to conduct a seminar for all JKA members last weekend. Hirayama Sensei is a sixth Dan female instructor from JKA Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. “I was excited, especially for the ladies of our dojo, to have such a qualified female instructor visit us,” explained Sharp. “Hirayama Sensei even did a special ‘ladies only’ class.” Team members are actively fundraising to help cover the over $8000 of expenses they anticipate the trip will cost. They are holding a pub night fundraiser June 17 (6 to 10 p.m.) at the Jolly Miller Pub. Dinner is $10 and they are looking for donations of items or services for a silent auction. They are also hoping to find

corporate sponsors, donors, and other opportunities to raise funds. The team is leaving Aug. 13, arriving in Taiwan a week before the tournament. Meanwhile, on Saturday, Valley Shidokan is hosting a traditional karate tournament at Vedder middle school. Participants from JKA dojos across the province are participating in this event. The format and grading criteria will be different from the sport karate tournaments. This traditional style will be a meaningful break from the competitions familiar to Valley Shidokan members. Participants, ages five and up, will compete in individual kata, team kata, and kumite. Members of the public are encouraged to drop by and watch. It will start at 9 a.m. and run throughout the day. For more information, check online at www.valleyshidokan. com.

Twelve-year-old Andrew Kirk continues to rack up gold medals on the track. The Chilliwack native earned four first place finishes at the B.C. elementary school track and field championships, held May 27-29 in Richmond. Kirk dominated the dashes. He finished first in the 100 metre with a blazing time of 13.22 seconds, first in the 200m with a time of 27.12s and first in the 300m with a time of 43.77s. Kirk added the capper in the long jump, soaring 4.78m for another gold medal. Thirteen-year-old Afton Servatius earned

another gold for the Chilliwack Track and Field Club, as she fired through the 100m dash in 13.86s. Tanner Geary (13-year-old boys) narrowly missed the podium in the high jump, finishing fourth with a leap of 1.35m. Michaela Read (12-year-old girls) finished fifth in the 800m run, clocking a time of 2:49.5. Taylor Read (11-year-old girls) placed 11th in the 600m run with a time of 2:23.4, adding a 10th place showing in the discus with a toss of 7.91m. See www.chilliwacktrackandfield.teampages. com

Craddock coaching Canada at Universiade games University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball coach Barnaby Craddock is lending his talents to Team Canada’s coaching staff for International University Spor ts Federation (FISU) Games this August, 2011. Craddock joins Kevin

Hanson (University of British Columbia) and John Campbell (Dalhousie) at the 26th Summer Universiade, taking place Aug. 12-23 in Shenzhen, China. This is Craddock’s first Universiade appointment. Last year, UFV’s bench boss led the

Cascades to a sixth place finish (10-14) and a position in the Canada West playoffs. They went the distance against the rival Trinity Western University Spartans, losing the best-of-three series in the final game. Craddock coached the U-17 B.C. provin-

cial basketball team to a bronze medal at last summer’s 2010 Canada Basketball National Championships. Craddock will be entering his fifth year at the helm of the Cascades in September. Previously he led the Brandon Bobcats to the 2006 CIS national cham-

Slamming start The locals were able to keep the Farm scoreless through six innings with great pitching from Clayton Beck. In the top of the seventh, Kevin MacEachern gave Chilliwack breathing room with a two-run home run. But some unfortunate luck and errors saw Abbotsford score five times in the bottom of the inning to claim the victory. Slammers third baseman Steve Claxton was two for three with a double in the loss. Chilliwack’s next game is Friday at Townsend Park (7 p.m.) against last year’s champions, the Yard Dogs.

Chilliwack’s Valley Sportszone Slammers are 3-3 to start the 2011 Fraser Valley Men’s Fast-Pitch season. The Slammers started the year with backto-back wins over the Agassiz Merchants and Abbotsford Blazers, followed by losses to Abbotsford Farm and the Abbotsford Yard Dogs. Another win over Agassiz put the Slammers back above the .500 mark and it looked as though they would improve on that against the Farm last Tuesday. Chilliwack entered the bottom of the seventh inning leading 4-0.

Michaela Read and Taylor Bessett helped Langley qualify for the gold medal game where they upended the Vancouver Island Junior Canucks. The girls had to keep their composure as the Canucks came unglued in the waning moments of the title game. With a minute and a half left in the match the Vancouver Island players took several unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, resulting in several ejections.

Their coach was tossed as well. Next up for the Eagles is the Subway North American Cup, taking place in Winnipeg June 9-12. The team is in the Super Elite AAA division and will be playing teams from throughout North America, with the first game against a team from the Sask-Can AAA program. The competition will be tough and will be a good experience for the girls.

Born in Manville, Alberta on July 8, 1919, our mother lived the majority of her childhood and teen years in Bowmanville, Ontario with her mother, stepfather and seven siblings. She travelled to B.C. with a girl friend to ďŹ nd work and adventure. She succeeded in this goal by working on the steamship lines that travelled between Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle where she met her husband and the love of her life, Allan Maclean. After a long courtship they married and had two daughters. Our mother loved life, had a generous nature and was a consummate shopper, having an eye for quality and a good bargain. After retirement, Mom (and Dad) moved to Vernon to enjoy the weather and lifestyle. She enjoyed many afternoons sitting on her patio on the shores of Lake Okanagan. Our mother enjoyed cooking, photography, shopping, reading, tai chi and the company of friends and family. She is predeceased by her parents, two brothers and her husband. She is greatly missed by her daughters, Denise (Rheal) and Crystal, granddaughters Abbey and Ashley, grandsons Brig (Trina), Kyle (Melissa) and great-grandsons Morgan and Myer.

REIMER Gerhard â&#x20AC;&#x153;Georgeâ&#x20AC;? Wilfred

March 26, 1914 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May 27, 2011 George was born on March 26, 1914, the seventh child of Abram J. and Maria (Froese) Reimer in the REIMER Mennonite village of Wiesenfeld which was founded in 1880 by his greatgrandfather Jacob D. Reimer in what is now the Ukraine. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forebears willed him a rich spiritual, intellectual and material history. The mayhem of the 1917 Russian Revolution engulfed idyllic Wiesenfeld only three years after Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth. In 1919, at age 5, George witnessed the murder by terrorists of his grandfather Froese and Uncle Franz. Everyone ďŹ&#x201A;ed Wiesenfeld. The A. J. Reimer family sojourned in the village of Gnadenfeld in the Molotschna, where they survived the Great Famine. In 1924 the family emigrated to Canada â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by train across Europe to Latvia. At Riga they embarked for England. From there they sailed across the Atlantic to Quebec City, then by train to Saskatchewan. Southeast of Humboldt they joined six other families in homesteading some rocky Saskatchewan ďŹ elds during the Great Depression. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schooling ended after six years. Hard physical work dominated his life. George began a relationship with the Savior in his teens, was baptized and remained a devout and faithful follower of Jesus throughout his long life. He modeled and lived his faith more than he spoke of it. George began courting Anne in Saskatchewan. After both families moved to BC the

Got a complaint?

two lovers were married in the Greendale MB Church on July 31, 1938. They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in the same church in July 2008. George and Anne lived and raised their children Reg, Jerry, and Joan in Greendale. They were active members of Greendale MB Church from 1943 to 2005 when they moved to Menno Terrace in Abbotsford. George Reimer was an exemplary husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and in-law, as well as a ďŹ ne craftsman and farmer and a huge contributor to church and community. Honesty, generosity and faithfulness characterized George. He blessed us by staying with us a long time. In his waning days on earth he often asked his children â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is there for me to do?â&#x20AC;? His Lord will have a much better answer than we could muster! On May 16 George suffered an incident in Menno Pavilion which led to pneumonia. He was admitted to the Abbotsford hospital where, after 10 difďŹ cult days, he died peacefully on May 27. George was predeceased by his wife Anne on December 30, 2008. He is survived by three children. Reg (LaDonna). Jerry (Annelisa), and Joan (Clarence) Neufeld, ďŹ ve grandchildren, seven greatgrandchildren and two step great-grandchildren. A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 11:00 am from Greendale Mennonite Church, 6550 Sumas Prairie Rd., Chilliwack.
