Autism review caught up in procedural wrangling Katie Bartel The Progress Emotions ran high at a Chilliwack school board meeting over a last-minute motion to engage in a review of special education services delivered in schools. School trustee Heather Maahs requested the motion be added to the agenda at the beginning of Tuesday’s meeting, but was denied when trustees Louise Piper, Barry Neufeld, Walt Krahn and Doug McKay voted against it. For more than a month parents of children with autism have publicly been expressing concerns over how their children are treated and educated in the school system. They’ve described a system that segregates autistic children, and has a rotating door of education assistants – with some lacking sufficient training. Maahs’ motion was the result of those claims. However, those who voted against the motion argued the move came too late to be added to the agenda Those late additions were the motive for another motion passed later in the evening that now requires trustees to submit motions in writing with rationale prior to the agenda being developed so that all trustees, staff and public have advance notice of what’s to be discussed before a meeting. Board chair Louise Piper said she’s been faced with repeated last-minute motions to be added to agendas late the night before the agenda is put together. “Time and time again, we are getting emails close to midnight the night before from trustees requesting motions be added to the agenda,” said Piper, who sought the advice of a registered parliamentarian before including the motion in the agenda.

Paramount meeting draws a crowd Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount are feeling decidedly optimistic. About 90 people showed up at the old arts centre Monday night to kick around ideas and offer input about saving the old Paramount Theatre building. Seniors, business owners, youth and other interested residents got an update on what the group has been up to since the demolition of the Paramount was delayed by three months with a vote by city council. “We are optimistic,” said one of

the organizers, Sam Waddington, after the meeting. “There’s been some great interest expressed from all sectors of the community, and we’re gaining momentum. “Many of the people who came out to the meeting asked us what they could do to help.” Offers have poured in to assess the building, donate electrical expertise, or create artistic renderings, among other services, since the group came together to stop demolition of the downtown landmark. “The Paramount tugs on a heartstring for many in Chilliwack,” he said. “With that

kind of community support behind us, we’re going to channel that into our vision and go forward with consolidated plans.” They have come to understand the effort to save it cannot be accomplished with raw emotion alone. They’ll need about $300,000 just to open the doors, not to mention ongoing operating funds for whatever entity is created. A structural engineer is being sought, along with efforts to get more information about the extent of underground contamination next door from the Ewert building. “We need to go through the

motions and come up with a workable business model,” he said. One of the main ideas is to establish some type of theatre facility, possibly to show art films. Ultimately it’s going to come down to financial partnerships, said Waddington. A steering group of five has been working on it. They’ll be actively seeking sponsorships, and advocates at different levels, and considering a not-for-profit model, possibly run by volunteers. “We don’t view this as a shortterm thing,” he said.

Conservatives eye changes to fish habitat protection But Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl says government ‘not abandoning’ habitat protection Robert Freeman The Progress A leaked document that alleges the Conservative government is looking at removing fish habitat protection from the Fisheries Act is raising the alarm among Fraser Valley fishermen. Frank Kwak, president of the Fraser Valley Salmon Society, although clearly concerned about the report, said he didn’t want to comment publicly on allegations made in a leaked document until it’s discussed by the society executive. But Fin Donnelly, the NDP’s fisheries critic in Ottawa, said the response of the fisheries minister during question period left him no

doubt the government is seriously considering stripping fish habitat from the wording of the act. “He didn’t say, ‘No, we’re not doing that,’” Donnelly said, in a telephone interview after Tuesday’s question period. “He just said, ‘No decision has been made.’” But Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon Mark Strahl made no bones about confirming the government is reviewing the fisheries act “which are outdated and unfocused in terms of balancing environmental and economic concerns.” “We’re certainly not abandoning environmental fisheries protection, but we also want to bring balance to the system,” he said. “Right now, the legislation doesn’t allow for that.”

Strahl agreed the proposed changes “do have repercussions, good and bad,” but he repeated the minister’s point in question period that no decisions have been made. Donnelly said the document leaked by a former DFO employee suggested that the Conservative government wants to remove all references to harming fish habitat, which is the “key mechanism” that triggers an environmental review before any kind of in-stream activity is approved. “You wouldn’t have to convince a judge (the project) is harmful to fish, which is already extremely difficult to do,” he said. If approved, Donnelly said the changes could ease such things as gravel removal operations, pipelines crossing waterways, logging and mining projects — and the clearing of ditches in farmers’

fields. The Enbridge pipeline twinning project, opposed by many B.C. First Nations, would cross some 1,000 streams and rivers in northern B.C. as it carries tar sands crude oil from Edmonton to Kitimat, B.C. for shipment to refineries around the world. Donnelly agreed such a fundamental change to the act would be a radical move by the government, but “not out of the line” with what he called The Conservatives’ antienvironmental agenda. The proposed Fisheries Act changes will be attached to an omnibus budget bill on March 29, so it can’t be killed without defeating the budget. Donnelly said it’s the same method the Conservatives used to change the Navigable Waters Protection Act in 2009 to deregu-

late protection requirements. Otto Lang, a retired DFO scientist to whom the document was leaked, said his reaction to the proposed changes is “disillusionment” with the agency that had come so far in protecting Canada’s fish habitat. He said fisheries officers once had a hard time getting a bulldozer out of a salmon-spawning stream. Now he fears the country is moving back to those times. “It’s as though I wasted most of my life,” he said. Langer said the document was leaked to him from “a very reliable person” in a “fairly high level” position in government. “I’d like to have released more, but somebody would lose their job in government quite quickly,” he said. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Oil pipeline ‘twinning’ project surfaces in Chilliwack Profusion of ‘academies’ draws fire Robert Freeman The Progress

Fraser Valley residents are raising the alarm about possible expansion of a pipeline carrying crude oil through the valley on its way to Vancouver and refineries around the world. Chilliwack resident Sheila Muxlow is one of the organizers of an “educational event” next Tuesday at the UFV’s Chilliwack campus starting at 6:30 p.m. in room A203. Most people — like Muxlow herself — are surprised to learn there is an oil pipeline running through the valley, some near residential areas of Chilliwack, and then on to a refinery in Burnaby and to ports in Vancouver. Now, Kinder Morgan, which owns the Trans Mountain pipeline, plans to twin the line to expand its export capacity. Company officials were not available Wednesday to discuss details of the proposal and to describe the pipeline’s exact route through Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley. But spokesperson Lexa Hobenshield said the twinning project is in its early design stages, and an announcement on its scope isn’t expected until later this spring. “The input from local interests will be critical to our planning,” she said, and the “18- to 24-month dialogue” with the public will be reviewed before the company files an application with the National Energy Board (NEB) for a regulatory review. That review is not expected until 2014. “More information about the proposed project will be available

in the coming months, and we look forward to the discussions that will ensue,” she said. Hobenshield did not respond to residents’ concerns as voiced by Muxlow about pipeline ruptures, the “toxicity” of tar sands or lack of consultation with municipal officials. Muxlow said the tar sands in the pipeline is more toxic than oil, and because it is also more dense, would sink into the underground water table if a rupture occurred, making it harder to clean up and “that much more of a disaster.”

The pipeline’s Sumas terminal ruptured on Jan. 24, and although company officials said the spill was completely contained, area residents still questioned the long-term health effects. An incident report by Kinder Morgan to the NEB is required. In 2007, more than 1,500 barrels spilled in Burnaby after a construction crew ruptured the pipeline. Hobenshield said pipelines “are proven to be the safest and most efficient means of transporting large volumes of crude oil and natural gas over land.”

“Our industrial safety record is first-class compared to any other way to move large quantities of energy ... this is absolutely by far the safest and most environmentally sound way to do that,” she said. Muxlow contends the pipeline also poses a risk in “the bigger picture” — delaying the development of renewable energy sources. “It’s holding us hostage to a fossil-fuel economy,” she said, “instead of developing more renewable, sustainable energy sources.”

Is the Chilliwack school district becoming over-saturated with academies? Katharin Midzain, president of the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association, thinks so. At Tuesday night’s school board meeting, two new academies were approved in principle by trustees: a golf academy at Sardis secondary and a hockey academy at Strathcona elementary. This comes one meeting after the board approved in principle an outdoor education academy at Vedder middle school – adding to the hockey and baseball academies at Sardis secondary, the hockey academy at Chilliwack middle, and the soccer academy at Mt. Slesse middle already in place. All of the academies are fee-based programs, costing anywhere from $800-$2,000. Midzain argued they were elitist. “I want trustees to really think about what bringing all these academies to a public education system that’s supposed to be free, accessible and equal for all students is really doing,” said Midzain. “When students are having to pay $800 to $2,000 to participate, that’s not free, accessible or equal.” While Midzain said the academies are creating a two-tiered system, dividing the haves and the have-nots, those within the academies disagree. They believe these academies are providing students with more Continued: ACADEMIES/ p5

Stewards concerned about Cultus Lake gathered at the Yakweakwioose longhouse Tuesday night to get a yearly update on the treasured local ecosystem. “Our people say the lake is one of our mothers,” said speaker Mark Point, a researcher at Sto:lo Tribal Council. He introduced the event’s delicate aim of sharing a traditional meal in the longhouse, as well as uniting diverse interests around caring for the lake. The night included a status update from the Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Strategy, facilitated by Marion Robinson of the Fraser Basin Council and Soowahlie First Nation. “Cultus Lake is suffering from something the scientists call eutrophication, which means it’s getting too much nutrient,” Robinson said. Some elders remember a time when the lake was clear all the way down to the bottom. But in recent years it’s become murkier in part due to the presence of about three million visitors annually to the Cultus Lake area. “The whole point of the evening was sharing information on caring for Cultus Lake,” she said. “We consciously invited the community because we are busy building community around these issues.” They expressed gratitude for the fourth year in a row that Grand Chief Frank Malloway allowed the “big house” to be opened in winter for the annu-

al update and traditional meal shared by reps from local First Nations, business, government, private sector and the community. Aboriginal speakers shared traditional stories about the lake and the supernatural creatures the dwell in it according to Sto:lo lore. An FVRD engineer touched on the status of sewage treatment in the area. Many were waiting to hear the report by Cultus Lake Salmon Lab researcher Annika Putt, an SFU student. She is conducting field work at the DFO lab and is measuring nutrients levels at various points around the lake for the two-year Estimating the Nutrient Mass Balance study. The study specifically looks at “eutrophication” or impacts of too many nutrients on the lake on water quality and fish habitat. Complicating this are the unique fish stocks, including

the critically endangered Cultus Lake sockeye, a genetically distinct salmon population, and the Cultus Pygmy Sculpin, a small fish found nowhere else in the world. “Core samples show the health of Cultus Lake is deteriorating,” Putt said. Like many hugely popular lakes, it has too much nutrient, but pinpointing the precise source of the nutrients is a big part of the study. Some of the usual suspects are sewage, bird droppings, seepage and more. But even if the flow of nutrients into the lake were stopped or slowed, it would still take a long time for the lake to rebound. “We hope to take the information eventually and say these are the areas to target, and work toward halting the current trend of decreasing health,” Putt said.

Academies called ‘elitist’ ACADEMIES from p3 choice, are in line with the government’s push away from the “outdated” bricks and mortar style of teaching, and are reaching students in a way that textbooks sometimes fail to. “This would bring learning outside of the classroom and into the real world,” Jason Shea, co-teacher of the outdoor education academy at VMS, said at the Feb. 28 board meeting. Bob Young, principal of Strathcona elementary, who helped develop Chilliwack’s first academy at CMS six

years ago, said the academies are far too valuable not to offer. They give students choice and opportunity for future success, he said. Diego Testa, principal at Sardis secondary, said students registered in these academies have a passion for these programs, and schools need to tap into those passions. Midzain, however, was not convinced. She said similar programs are offered in the community and they don’t belong in schools if there are fees attached.

Trustees Heather Maahs and Martha Wiens were opposed to the new way. “We cannot be in the business of excluding people,” said Maahs. However, trustee Barry Neufeld felt the opposition was a sign of “pandering to the media,” given there was no opposition prior to news reports that were published following the last meeting. “Are we on this board to satisfy voters or to do what’s best for the children?” Neufeld asked. “Always pandering to the media isn’t always what’s best for the children.”

Policing deal gives cities more say over RCMP costs Jeff Nagel Black Press A renewed 20-year RCMP contract for B.C. – expected to be signed by the end of the month – will freeze pay levels for 2012. That should limit this year’s increase in policing costs to no more than one per cent, according to Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender. But Fassbender, who was the observer for B.C. cities in the negotiations, cautioned future increases depend on a series of factors. One big one is whether or not a rollback of wages being challenged in court by Mounties leads to a big bill for retroactive pay, and if so, whether that must be borne by municipalities. “Most local governments have budgeted for that retroactive, so there are no surprises,� Fassbender said, but added cities still hope Ottawa will cover that cost if it happens.

He said the most critical arrangements of the new deal are ones that should give local cities much more influence in reining in RCMP spending, which eats up a large proportion of most cities’ budgets. “The day we sign the new contract is not the end of the process, but really the beginning,� he said. “In the past we’ve been provided bills without a lot of input.� The main mechanism will be a new contract management committee made up of 10 local government representatives, co-chaired by Fassbender and B.C.’s assistant deputy justice minister. That committee will oversee RCMP spending that is mandated by B.C. For example, the PRIME information management system – which exists only in B.C. and has been one source of spiraling police costs for cities – would fall under the committee’s mandate.

R AESIDE

Labour energized by dispute Will the teachers’ strike morph into a 2012 version of Operation Solidarity, the 1983 labour-led protest that brought B.C. to the brink of a general strike? While there are some similarities, it isn’t too likely. In 1983, the Social Credit government of Bill Bennett brought in a sweeping program of government economy, and took a few direct pokes at some bodies it did not like, such as the rent review office and the human rights commission, under the “restraint” theme. This occurred shortly after an election, and unlike the imposition of the HST under Gordon Campbell in 2009, the government was clear during the campaign that, if elected, there would be some attempt to curb spending and government programs. When the whole program was introduced in a sweeping series of bills, organized labour and many community organizations were appalled. They quickly put together an action plan that included a series of protests and strikes, with the final step before a planned general strike of all unionized employees being a week-long illegal walkout by teachers. The Bennett government clearly overreached, and Operation Solidarity did succeed in getting it to back down on a few fronts. However, it took late-night negotiations at the premier’s home with Jack Munro, head of the largest private sector union in the province, to make that breakthrough. The level of anger at the provincial government was far higher in 1983 than it is today. Operation Solidarity attracted 40,000 people to a rally at Empire Stadium and succeeded in getting 60,000 people to protest outside a Social Credit convention. It is highly unlikely that the teachers could attract that level of support. Most workers, including government workers, are not getting raises. The B.C. Teachers Federation call for 15 per cent pay increases and improved benefits doesn’t resonate. However, the BC Liberal government has clearly angered not just the BCTF, but much of organized labour. It has given the labour movement renewed energy and passion.

Cold climate that’s on Planet BCTF VICTORIA – The stories began tumbling out as soon as last week’s column on teacher union indoctrination of students was posted on our websites. Most parents, retired teachers and administrators requested anonymity, because their kids and grandkids still have to go to school, or they have relatives or fair-weather friends in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation who mustn’t be enraged by any contradiction of their dogma. There was the Grade 3 art class in Langley where students were assigned to create antiBill 22 protest signs. There was the Grade 6 teacher in Greater Victoria who started a one-hour drill on BCTF talking points by telling students not to believe anything they see in the media. There was the middle school in the Gulf Islands that dismissed students early to force them all

out in a show of solidarity against the latest of many legislated settlements. And there were the BCTFBCGEU pickets that blocked entrances to government offices here in Victoria, harassing, threatening and physically blocking office workers in an effort to force them to join the thousands bused in for the traditionTom al howling show of FLETCHER strength for Big State Labour bosses on the legislature lawn. In my 20 years of criticizing the policies and tactics of teacher union radicals, I have had my office windows smashed twice. I have seen a mob of self-absorbed strikers push a senior off the sidewalk into the snow. My daughter

has been subjected to hard-left environmental propaganda in elementary school. I’ve never seen anything quite like this. But hey, let’s be constructive here. First, I should emphasize I understand that these incidents do not represent the vast majority of dedicated teachers, who wouldn’t think of intentionally abusing their position for personal or political gain. I mean that sincerely. And thanks to all the teachers who sent me lecturing letters, particularly those who insist that they don’t really want another 16-per-cent raise, because their first priority is improving classroom resources. Volume doesn’t permit individual responses to ever yone. Authors who begin along the lines of “Sir, you are an idiot” receive lower priority. If I don’t get back to you, please convey

your willingness to accept a brief wage freeze to your union executive. They’ve scaled back some of their more egregious prep time and paid leave demands, but apparently your admirably altruistic message has not yet been absorbed. And yes, I’m aware that the Harvard study of class size and performance I mentioned last week examined charter schools in the United States. I understand that “charter school” is considered coarse language in B.C. As with health care, there must be no serious competitive dynamic or other dangerous experimentation permitted within the unionized state monopoly model. And thanks for suggesting I’m an agent of the B.C. Liberals, who invented poverty 11 years ago. East Van MLA Jenny Kwan touched on it in the debate on Bill 22. Children coming to inner

city schools hungry, inadequately clothed, with lice. Abused children. I can assure Kwan that these tragic realities are not confined to the hellish B.C. Liberal era of spending increases. Indeed, I witnessed all these things in my three-room school in Tomslake, B.C. in the 1960s. Social Credit was to blame then. I remember the school more for its great teachers than its undrinkable water or alcoholic principal. And to all those who provide spelling-challenged advice on journalistic objectivity, here’s the thing. The first rule of opinion writing is to have one.

A call for Cultus Lake democracy RE: “Senate election bill ‘political posturing,’ says NDP house leader” (Chilliwack Progress, March 8). A renewed call this week for elected senators by Chilliwack MLA John Les. In in his bill, called the Senate Nominee Election Act, he states “I think British Columbians will enjoy having access to a democratic process,” instead of the current appointment process that’s vulnerable to political manipulation. He is referring to the non-elected imbalance of the number of B.C. senators compared to other provinces with smaller populations. He goes on to say, if there is no

process in fixing the imbalance and if that imbalance is going to continue, then we do not want to continue dignifying it with the election of senators.” This sounds similar to the situation at Cultus Lake Park, where residents are asking for a democratic election process. We have an imbalance of the number of Park Board members; five elected by Chilliwack compared to two by the residents of Cultus Lake Park. If MLA John Les and his government are so concerned about the lack of a democratic process in the selection of the Senate, I would assume that they would be more

2013 F FR-S

than willing to bring a democratic process to Cultus Lake Park by amending the Cultus Lake Park Act which is with in their powers. I would like to know when he and his government are going to amend the Cultus Lake Act to bring about a democratic process to Cultus Lake Park Board so that those elected are accountable to whom they govern. If he feels so strongly about having a democratic process for an elected office, I ask him to sign my petition at www.ipetitions.com/petition/cultuslake

more. I personally do not consider any of these to be a real option. There is no such thing as something for nothing. Someone will have to pay and if it isn’t a government funded program it will have to be you and I. How is 16 per cent even reasonable? It is not and the teachers know it. They are using the tried and true tactic of asking high so we will settle at what they really wanted all along. So that when we end up giving them an eight per cent pay increase we all breathe a sigh of relief that it wasn’t 16 per cent. Who out there has seen that much of a pay increase in their job? When most full-time Canadian employees work 1,928 hours, teachers are only working

tion how they do things. One teacher blatantly used class room time to manipulate the thoughts of children to support their strike action (see Tom Fletcher’s article in the Chilliwack Progress last week). Besides, your volunteering would make the union upset because you would make teacher support jobs unnecessary. If the teachers get paid more elsewhere, I for one, won’t stop you from moving. But you won’t, because in reality you know how good you have it here. Besides, someone new would quickly jump up to take your job and do it with more heart and passion because it is what they want to do, teach!

1,265 hours. That is 663 fewer hours than most “full-time” employees. What it works out to if you take the average teachers pay and divide it by the hours worked is $56 dollars an hour. Go ahead look it up. Google what do teachers really make and see if I am lying. Check out http:// www.vancouversun.com/ business/public-sectorsalaries/basic.html to see what your child’s teacher makes. I can get behind smaller classes and more support for special needs but I also know there are a lot of parents who would volunteer but have been asked not to because teachers don’t want them in “their” classrooms watching them do their job. They want people who won’t ques-

‘No such thing as something for nothing’ I am opposed to teachers striking for more pay and “better work conditions.” In my opinion, there are few jobs in B.C. in which employees are paid as much to do as little. Yet they all feel entitled to more. I am not sure where exactly the money to pay them more to do less (therefore requiring more teachers to do the same amount of work) is expected to come from. Are they not aware who pays their paycheck? We do. The tax payers. The government is not a business enterprise. It is not a manufacturing company that can increase output or increase prices to pay higher wages. If it needs more money it has to cut programs and services, cause inflation by increasing the money supply or by taxing us

Parent calls for autism review AUTISM from Front “I don’t want to see sudden motions thrust at us at the last minute,” said Neufeld, who felt

such motions result in decisions being made under pressure. However, trustee Silvia Dyck called it a directive, and Maahs

called it a gag motion. “It seems to me the point of a draft [agenda] is to look and see if anything is missing and if we’d like to add

items, we let you know,” said Maahs. “[With this motion] it seems to me drafts are pointless. “Are we gagging ourselves here?” Maahs said she had tried to get her motion for a review on special education services included in the agenda prior to the meeting, but was “flatly” denied. She said it was well thought out with background and rationale provided. But Piper reiterated motions that come in late at night do not allow all trustees to do their own sufficient research into the topic at hand. “You may have had a month to research this, but when you provide a motion at 11 p.m. and we’re meeting at 7 a.m. the next morning, that time doesn’t allow any opportunity for the rest of us to do research,” said Piper. For parent Tonja Padgett, the display was disappointing. Padgett said a review of special education services is needed, and hopes this isn’t the last of the discussion. The parent of three says she doesn’t have to worry about her non-neurologically challenged children at school, but for her autistic son, “I have to fight every step of the way,” she said. “The bottom line is this: we want consistent, fair education for our children.”

Similarly, Fassbender said, if the province decides to embark on a major new initiative to fight gang crime, resulting in increased costs, the committee will have a say and be able to keep local cities informed. Asked whether the local government committee would have an actual veto over spending decisions or merely an advisory role, he said details are still being

worked out. “There definitely is the ability to say we’re not implementing that until there’s a review, a cost analysis or whatever,” Fassbender said. “The hope is there will be enough input earlier in the process that we won’t be in a Mexican standoff on any of this.” B.C. cities will also have representation on a separate contract management committee on federal RCMP spending issues that are common

to the other provinces and territories. The deal also includes a three-year freeze on the current $3,500 cost to cities of sending each new RCMP recruit through depot training in Regina. By 2015, a new and more accurate training cost is to be calculated, which cities believe should leave them paying less. It’s also expected local detachments will work even more closely with local cities, Fassbender added. “The world has changed and there is a clear recognition that we pay the majority of the costs and therefore we should have a significant opportunity to impact the future and the management of one of the most expensive parts of our municipal budgets.” The tentative deal extending the contract was reached in late November, after turbulent negotiations in which federal officials threatened to withdraw the force from B.C. in 2014 if the province didn’t sign. B.C., in turn, began what it called a preliminary exploration of how to launch a replacement provincial force. The new contract includes opt-out clauses under which any city can form its own municipal force or the province could end the RCMP contract and form a provincial force. Large cities continue to pay 90 per cent of local RCMP costs under the new deal, while smaller ones pay 70 per cent. Full details are expected to be made public later this month.

Police investigate after Promontory boys report ‘stranger’ incident The case of four young boys approached by a stranger in a red mini van is being investigated by the Chilliwack RCMP. “Any time children are approached and asked to go with a stranger it is an obvious concern to us,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “Although there was no attempt to grab any of the boys, we want to make everyone aware this incident happened, and ask parents to remind their kids about what to do when confronted with a situation like this,” Wolbeck said. The four boys, aged 8-10 years old were walking to Promontory school down Weeden Road at about 8 a.m. on Friday, March 2, when a bright red mini van pulled up behind

them. “The female passenger asked the boys if they wanted a ride,” Wolbeck said. “All of the boys replied that

they did not want a ride and the van drove away.” The boys told police the van might have had tinted windows,

and might have had a gold-coloured flower with no stem above the rear licence plate. The female passenger is described a

white woman between 40-50 years old, with short, curly brown or grey hair cut just below the ears. The male driver is

also white, and about the same age as the passenger, with short, grey-ish hair. He may have had a moustache. Anyone with infor-

mation about this incident is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.

Taste of the Okanagan

St. Patrick’s Day, we see a proliferation of shamrocks being sold as ‘the real thing’, but in fact there is some dispute as to which variety is the authentic shamrock. The most common plant being sold as a shamrock is Trifolium repens, a type of white clover. According to my research, using many different sources, this particular plant is most widely accepted as the ‘real’ shamrock. Many seed companies, in fact, sell the seed as the ‘true Irish shamrock’. They are usually sold in 2½ or 4 inch pots around St. Patrick’s Day, and they make a fine little plant for a sunny windowsill. They can also be planted outdoors almost anywhere, but the tiny yellow flowers

are, quite honestly, not of great ornamental value. But don’t forget that old legend of good luck! A strong case can also be made for wood sorrel being the plant St. Patrick used. Oxalis acetosella is native to the British Isles and during Elizabethan times, was a popular culinary herb. Back in the 1600’s, herbalist Nicholas Culpepper also recommended it as a medicinal herb. He suggested the plant would “quench thirst, strengthen weak stomachs and help repel any contagious sicknesses”. In actual fact, the leaves contain oxalic acid which, if taken internally in large amounts, may cause diarrhea, kidney failure or hemorrhaging. It does not sound very lucky

QUALITY ESCORTED TOURS SINCE 1984

Once in a while it is nice to pay tribute to a plant that really only gets recognition one day of the year - the shamrock. It was originally chosen as Eire’s national emblem because of the Brian legend that MINTER Saint Patrick used this plant to illustrate the Christian doctrine of the trinity. The shamrock has also been considered by the Irish as a symbol of good luck since earliest times - a superstition that has persisted and spread to people of many nationalities. Each year as we near

to me! On the other hand, this hardy perennial herb makes a novel ground cover with bright green tri-leaves and solitary white flowers that bloom from April through July. The most commonly sold oxalis for St. Patrick’s Day is the O. regnellii. It is a dandy houseplant with dozens of tiny white flowers that bloom persistently in spring and summer. Not really hardy outdoors, it makes a nice plant, however, for a sunny patio in summer. The secret to their care is to water them thoroughly, then let them dry out. The newest oxalis to appear in the marketplace is a very unique purple leafed variety called. O. triangularis ‘Heartbreaker’. It is an absolute beauty with its soft pink flowers contrasting nicely with its purple foliage. ‘Heartbreaker’ is not very Irish, but it certainly is attractive. One of the favourite shamrocks of most gardeners today is the ‘Iron Cross’ oxalis called O. deppi. This hardy little variety is a real beauty in light shade or sunny garden areas, and its rosy pink flowers make quite a showing. It may not be the real thing, but it is one of the best for our gardens.

With so many diverse factors to take into consideration when buying a new home, particularly in the Vancouver region, it is no surprise first-time home buyers need a little help demystifying the process. What home type is best matched to wants, needs and financial resources? What location is preferable? What are the mortgage options? How does the provincial property transfer tax exemption for first-time home buyers work? What are the rules associated with B.C.’s newly announced $10,000 first-time new home buyers bonus? How much can be withdrawn tax-free from RRSPs? How about legal considerations, closing costs and home warranties? What’s involved with condo pre-sales? Those and other key questions will be covered by a panel of experts at the 18th Annual Seminar for First-time Home Buyers, presented by the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) on Tuesday, April 3

Mel Nieva shares musical talents in master class Mel Nieva grew up honing her musical skills in Chilliwack. She studied voice at the Chilliwack Academy of Music before going on to do diploma work at Capilano University in

both classical and jazz fields. Now she’s back to offer coaching and master classes to young musicians. She ran a highly successful Glee-inspired summer camp at

the former Chilliwack Arts Centre and helped debut the Sto:lo Vocal Ensemble in December. This performance masterclass is aimed squarely at building young musicians’ confidence.

Nieva knows that nerves can make or break a performer. Her solution? “I teach everyone to own their own performance.” A master class on this very topic

will be at the Academy of Music on Saturday, March 17. “I was always a really self-conscious kid,” she says. Continued: MASTER/ p29

With Ravel’s iconic Bolero setting the tone from the outset, the dancers initially embody the fun and frivolity, which eventually gives way to a more sombre mood and transitions into a visual spiral into madness. Walking Mad is the latest work of acclaimed choreographer Johan Inger and audiences are in for a treat. “Walking Mad is a riotous hit, a clever, surreal romp set to Ravel’s Bolero,” said the Boston Globe critic. Walking Mad is accompanied by two new pieces of work, Between Disappearing and Becoming by Ballet BC’s artistic director Emily Molnar and Vitulare, the stunning new work from Canada’s rising star choreographer Aszure Barton.

Perspectives How is your child’s ‘Bounce back power’? This week ends our series on the findings from the McCreary Centre Society’s Adolescent Health Survey. We have explored exercise, body image, mental health, substance use, among other topics and will be wrapping up by examining the conclusions in the realm of protective factors. Protective factors are conditions within individuals, families, or communities that, when present, increase health and well-being. These attributes can serve as buffers against stress and adversity, allowing coping strategies,

resources, and supports to work effectively to build resiliency, or as we like to call it: bounceback power. The survey found that protective factors can help even the most vulnerable youth overcome risks, in that having protective factors can promote health and reduce the negative effect of some risk behaviours. Making healthier choices leads to more positive health outcomes now, and in the future. Overcoming negative experiences quicker and with more ease also leads to more positive health outcomes now, and in the future. Examples of protective factors that the survey found were: • School connectedness (students who like school and felt connected to it were much less likely to have tried

alcohol, have suicidal ideation, gotten into a fight, or tried smoking in the past year) • Family connectedness (youths’ feelings of closeness, caring, warmth, satisfacEryn tion, and WICKER understanding toward their parents and family) • Connection to a culture/ethnic group • Peers with pro-social attitudes (friends who would disapprove of getting pregnant, getting drunk, or beating someone up) Some other examples of protective factors are: • Mastery and competence (being good at something and feeling

good about it) • Optimism about the future • Good problem-solving skills • Self-regulation skills (ability to control one’s own emotions, attention, and behaviours) • Meaning involvement in pro-social activities • Healthy primary attachments • Parental resilience and support Additional protective factors may be things that we actually take for granted or don’t even consider, like having dinner together as a family on a regular basis or having members of the community know your name and take an interest in you (bus drivers, teachers that aren’t yours, etc.). For more information, the McCreary Centre Society website http://www.mcs.bc.ca/ contains the 2008 BC Adolescent Health Survey in its entirety. 2013 is the next year that information will be gathered by surveying students – hopefully Chilliwack will take part so we can tailor our programs and policies to reflect our community – because an important goal of prevention is to offset the balance between risk and protective factors so that protective factors will always outweigh the risk factors. Think of opportunities where you can help build, create, or foster protective factors in yourself, your children, and the children and teens in your community – you are only helping yourself when you are helping build a healthier community.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

Chiefs a massive underdog verus Vees BCHL PLAYOFF PREVIEW: ROUND ONE

PENTICTON VEES 60-54-4-0-2

There is no team in the BCHL going into the playoffs as a bigger underdog than the Chilliwack Chiefs. Harvey Smyl’s crew has the unenviable task of taking on a junior A juggernaut that has lost just one game since early November. The Penticton Vees finished the regular season with just six losses overall, dominating just about everyone they faced. They scored 334 goals, tops in the league by 89 over the next best team (Coquitlam Express at 245). The Vees allowed 133 goals, making them the league’s second stingiest team (Powell River gave up 127). Penticton landed nine players on the BCHL’s all-star teams (see right) and Vees players won four awards. If Penticton doesn’t beat Chilliwack, it will go down as perhaps the biggest upset in BCHL playoff history. If Penticton doesn’t beat Chilliwack quickly and decisively, eyebrows will be raised. Among Chilliwack’s many problems will be finding a way to put pucks behind Vees netminder Michael Garteig. The Prince George native won the BCHL’s goaltending award, given to the netminder who posts the lowest goals-against average (1.93) with a minimum of 1,000 minutes played. “He’s well positioned, very experienced, han-

dles the puck well and he’s very composed,” Smyl said. “He’s like any other goalie in that you try to get traffic and get those second and third opportunities.” Garteig is protected by a star-laden defence anchored by Columbus Blue Jackets draft pick Mike Reilly (fourth round, 2011). Reilly’s offensive numbers this season were off the chart for a D-man as he posted 24 goals and 83 points in 51 games. Reilly is aided by fellow all-star blueliner Troy Stecher, who had five goals and 42 points in 53 games. “Reilly is fast and skilled and a very important piece to their puzzle back there, as is Stecher,” Smyl said. “We’ve got to create some pressure, create some turnovers and then hopefully score when we get our opportunities.” Up front, the Vees ice seven 30 goal scorers. It would be eight, but Connor Reilly has been sidelined indefinitely by injury. “We certainly don’t want to take any bad penalties, I’ll tell you that,” Smyl said. “We have to play banging, grinding hockey and not give them odd-man rushes. We have to make them earn their chances.” Games one and two are Friday and Saturday in Penticton. Games three and four are Monday and Tuesday in Chilliwack.

Chilliwack defenceman Matthew Hutchinson (No. 8) hopes the physical play the team brought to a 5-2 win over Westside last weekend will serve them well in their first round playoff series against Penticton. A fan bus is leaving Chilliwack at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, going to Penticton for game two of the first round playoff series. Seats are $35 apiece (tax included), which includes a game ticket and snacks on the bus. Seats can be reserved by calling the Chiefs office at 604-392-4433 or emailing Andrea at andrea@chilliwackchiefs.net. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Goalie Gillam nets all-star selection The BCHL named its post-season all-star teams on Tuesday, with one Chilliwack Chief making the grade. The league announced first and second all-star teams for both conferences. The Interior conference first team was

littered with Penticton Vees, who took four of the six spots. Prince George forward Paul De Jersey and Vernon D-man Brett Corkey were the outsiders among Penticton forwards Wade Murphy and Joe Benik, defenceman Mike Reilly and goaltender Michael Garteig. The Interior conference second team had a distinct Penticton flavour as well, with four spots going to Vees.

For wards Mario Lucia, Travis St. Denis and Connor Reilly were named along with defenceman Troy Stecher. Merritt Centennials defenceman Reece Wilcox and Chiefs goaltender Mitch Gillam also got spots. Gillam was honoured a second time with inclusion on the BCHL all-rookie team. Other top freshmen were Mike Reilly (Penticton), Devon

Toews (Surrey Eagles), Kerfoot (Coquitlam), Lucia (Penticton) and Steven Fogarty (Penticton). The Coastal conference first team was heavy on Coquitlam Express players, with forwards Alex Petan and Alex Kerfoot and defenceman Clinton Atkinson getting the nod. The remaining spots went to Cowichan Valley Capitals forward Devin Gannon, Powell River Kings blueliner

Craig Dalrymple and Surrey Eagles netminder Andrew Hunt. The Coastal conference second team had three Powell River players; forward Cohen Adair, defenceman Jon Jutzi and goaltender Sean Maguire. The other three spots went to Matt Brown (forward, Cowichan Valley), Tyler Morley (forward, Surrey) and Graeme McCormack (defenceman, Nanaimo Clippers).

GW Graham football holds first fundraiser Former B.C. Lions Rick Klassen and Kelly Lochbaum will be the special guests at a Saturday evening G.W. Graham football fundraiser. A dinner and silent auction will be held at the Rendevous Restaurant in Chilliwack. Tickets are $20 each, with $10 going to help GWG pay for the sharp-look-

ing Nike uniforms they will wear when they hit the field this fall. Tickets are good for a souvlaki dinner with Greek salad. Klassen’s local football ties go four decades back to the 1970s, when he suited up for Sardis secondary school. Klassen went on to

Simon Fraser University and then a lengthy career with the Lions. He won a Grey Cup championship in 1985, with his Lions beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 37-24 at Olympic Stadium in Montreal. Lochbaum had a productive career as a linebacker with both the B.C. Lions

and Calgary Stampeders after graduating from the University of North Arizona Lumberjacks. A sixth round pick of the Lions in the 1997 CFL draft, Lochbaum’s first stint with BC lasted from 1997-2000. He spent one season with Calgary before coming back to the Lions from 2002-05.

He was considered a standout on special teams. Lochbaum was born in White Rock but played high school ball at W.J. Mouat in Abbotsford. Tickets for a chance to meet either of these guys are available by emailing Laurie Smith at laurie@grahamfootball.ca.

Learning experience for Graham girls G.W. Graham’s Grade 8 girls basketball team lost three of four at provincials last week, a learning experience for a group of girls expected to do big things in the years to come. The Grizzlies opened the tournament with a heart-breaking 42-41 loss to the Carson Graham Eagles. Down three with six seconds left, Katherine Holden drained an apparent three point shot to tie the game.

But the official ruled it a two. GWG fell 46-40 to the Dr. Knox Falcons (Kelowna), but bounced back to demolish Pitt Meadows 47-22. Heather Thomson led the offence with 22 points while Alex

Demille added 16. GWG’s final game was against Vernon. The Grizzlies had some open looks against the Vernon D, but struggled to knock down shots, losing 30-16. GWG finished 14th overall.

Sports As we’ve seen before, things don’t always go as they’re expected to, writes Jacob Bestebroer The Chilliwack Chiefs have now qualified for the playoffs in 16 of their 17 seasons, and are 21 of 22 when you include their five seasons in Langley. Over that time, we’ve learned that not everything goes as expected. In 1995-96 the Chiefs won 44 games and were picked by everyone to win the league title. Everything was going according to plan until top scorer Shawn Horcoff went down with a leg injury early in the second round versus the Langley Thunder. The Thunder won that series in seven games. The Chiefs were dominant in 2001-02, setting a team record that still stands with 46 wins and cruising through the first three rounds (winning 11 of 13 games). After surprisingly losing the first two games in the finals versus Vernon, Chilliwack won four straight to win the league title. They took the Doyle Cup in six games over Drayton Valley, advancing to the national championships in Halifax. In Halifax, the Chiefs were the best team but were upset in the one game semi-final by Manitoba’s OCN Blizzard. Had those teams played 20 times the Chiefs would have won 19 of them. Of course it hasn’t always gone against the Chiefs. In the second half of the 1994-95 season the Chiefs showed signs that they would be a tough team to beat in the playoffs, but their incredible run to this city’s first junior hockey championship was Cinderella like. Their epic second round victory versus the heavily favored Kelowna Spartans was as incredible as incredible gets. Down three games to two, the Chiefs won game six at home in triple overtime on a goal by Shawn York. Earlier in the game Mike Minard, the Chiefs number one goalie, was knocked out of the game with an injury. Backup Corey Deutsch came in and was great. He was equally as good when the Chiefs went into Kelowna and won game seven. The Chiefs went on to win the league title in five games over the Power River Paper Kings, who themselves had pulled off a huge upset in the semi-finals, beating the favoured Penticton Panthers. In 1999 the Chiefs were given little chance in the semi-finals versus the Surrey Eagles, who were in their third year of an incredible run. Two years earlier they dominated like few teams in this league ever have, only to be upset in the national final by Summerside. They made amends the next year by winning the national championship in Nanaimo. Their 1999 team was not quite as good but the Chiefs were given less than no chance of winning that series. Trailing three games to one the Chiefs won three straight elimination games to win the series, including game seven in Surrey on an overtime goal by Jeff Yopyk. This year, the Chiefs face the Penticton Vees in round one. The Vees rewrote the BCHL record book this season with 54 wins and are obvious favorites in this series. But as we’ve seen before, things don’t always go as they are expected to. Feedback can be sent to jb@chilliwackchiefs.net. Chilliwack’s Malcolm Gould was named the BCHL player of the week Monday, coming off nine points in three games and back-to-back hat-tricks against Coquitlam and Westside.

Sardis secondary starting golf academy SSS will partner with the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club and new head instructor Jennifer Greggain. “Part of my vision is to create one of the best, if not the best, junior programs in the Fraser Valley,” the former LPGA tour player said enthusiastically. “I want to get some good athletes coming out of Chilliwack, and there’s no reason we can’t with the resources that we have.”

Sardis secondar y school is adding a third academy program, with plans to launch a golf academy in the fall. The school made a presentation at the School District 33 meeting Tuesday night, and the proposal was approved in principal. That means SSS can move ahead with plans to start in December 2012. SSS already has a baseball and hockey academy.

CG&CC will provide the facility and necessary equipment, and Greggain will coordinate with SSS golf coach Tom MacIsaac. “The students will be at the course two or three times a week for golf-specific training, and back at the school at other times for fitness and other components,” Greggain elaborated. “We’ll be using the Titleist Performance Institute assessment to gauge their abilities, and

dents, working with players of all abilities from beginners to elite, and helping to mold them,” Greggain said. “There are lots of opportunities out there for students who are willing to put in the work.” The plan is to have the academy run throughout the entire school year.

NOTICE IS GIVEN, pursuant to section 6 of the First Nations Fiscal and Statistical Management Act (hereafter referred to as the “FSMA”), that the Aitchelitz First Nation proposes to enact the Aitchelitz First Nation Property Assessment Law, 2012 and the Aitchelitz First Nation Property Taxation Law, 2012 (hereafter referred to as the “Proposed Laws”). DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED LAWS: The Proposed Laws are a property taxation law and a property assessment law, both made under the authority of section 5(1)(a)(i) of the FSMA. The property assessment law provides for the assessment and valuation of interests in land on the Aitchelitz Reserve, including appointing assessors, inspecting property, preparing assessment rolls, and mailing assessment notices. The property assessment law provides a process for reconsideration of assessments and for a right of appeal to an assessment review board. The property taxation law establishes a taxation regime that taxes interests in land in the Reserve, and includes provisions for exemptions, grants, preparing tax rolls and tax notices, the levy of penalties and interest on unpaid taxes, and the collection and enforcement of unpaid taxes. A COPY OF THE PROPOSED LAWS may be obtained from: Willy Hall, Aitchelitz First Nation Tax Administrator 7654 Chilliwack River Road, Chilliwack, BC, V2R 4L9 Phone: (604) 792-9485 • Fax: (604) 792-9425 E-Mail: afc@shaw.ca COUNCIL OF THE AITCHELITZ FIRST NATION INVITES WRITTEN COMMENTS regarding the Proposed Laws. The comment period for written comments is only open for sixty (60) days from March 16, 2012. The Deadline for written comments is May 15, 2012. Persons wishing to provide written comments must deliver the comments to Willy Hall at the address or fax number listed below. Any written comments must be received at this location on or before 4:00 pm May 15, 2012 to be considered by Council. Before passing the Proposed Laws, Council will consider all written representations received in accordance with this Notice. CONTACT INFORMATION: For further information or questions regarding the Proposed Laws, this Notice or the making of written representations to Council, please contact: Willy Hall, Aitchelitz First Nation Tax Administrator 7654 Chilliwack River Road, Chilliwack, BC, V2R 4L9 Phone: (604) 792-9485 • Fax: (604) 792-9425 E-Mail: afc@shaw.ca Dated: March 16, 2011 AITCHELITZ FIRST NATION: Public Notice Re: Assessment & Taxation Laws (March, 2012)
