Teachers to vote next month on further job action Katie Bartel The Progress Students were given a reprieve on extra-curricular activities run by teachers Wednesday, but the programs are still in jeopardy. Following the BC Teachers’ Federation annual general meeting, which had a showing of nearly 700 members, president Susan Lambert presented an action plan that could see extra-curricular activities scrapped by mid April. “Bill 22 was intended to rob us of our voice,” said Lambert. With this action plan, “we are putting the government on notice. We are looking at the government to

rethink its position.” A province-wide vote of the union’s membership will be held on April 17 and 18, where teachers will vote on whether to begin a withdrawal of all voluntary extracurricular activities. Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president Katharin Midzain said a work-to-rule mandate is a very real possibility. It’s one of the only bargaining chips teachers have, she said. “Other public sectors can refuse overtime as part of job action, but our overtime is our volunteer work,” said Midzain. “It’s the only thing we have in our arsenal.” And while Midzain is sympa-

thetic to the upset it could cause students, she said the long-term impact of Bill 22 has to be considered. “Will one elementary basketball season ruin a child’s life? No,” she said. “But will having 30 kids in a class, plus as many unlimited students with diverse needs and no support affect their lives? Absolutely. And it will affect them every day and every year they’re in school.” Still, Gord Byers, president of Chilliwack District Parents’ Advisory Council is concerned the most marginalized students in the district will suffer without extracurricular activities.

“This is stuff that keeps some kids involved and in school and doing good in school,” he said. “If teachers work to rule, are students who need help at lunch or after school going to get the help they need, or are they going to be left hanging?” Some teacher associations in other school districts have already withdrawn from extra-curricular activities, and the union has advised teachers not to start any new activities. The union will also be voting on a full withdrawal of services, despite the threat of heavy fines. “Teachers are angry and have a strong sense we need to be demon-

strative about our anger and frustration with a government that chooses a path this government has taken,” said Midzain. “We have an action plan and we are going to fight [Bill 22], but I don’t know what that’s going to look like. That depends on the membership.” If the union does engage in an illegal walkout, it will be subjected to a minimum fine of $1.3 million dollars a day; local unions will be subjected to a minimum of $2,500 a day; and individual teachers will face fines up to $475 a day. If they do not pay the first day, they will be held in civil contempt, Continued: TEACHERS/ p9

‘Homeless’ man catches drivers using cellphones Robert Freeman The Progress A Chilliwack RCMP officer seen holding a sign warning drivers using a cellphone they were about to get a ticket was part of a “distracted driver” enforcement blitz. A picture of Chilliwack RCMP Const. Bryan Martell, dressed as a homeless person and holding a sign at the corner of Vedder Road and Promontory Road Sunday, went viral on the Internet but how many distracted drivers were ticketed in the five-hour enforcement blitz hasn’t yet been released. Like booze and drugs, using a cellphone while driving a vehicle is illegal, but drivers in the Lower Mainland don’t seem to be getting the message. Last month, during a similar blitz by the Lower Mainland RCMP, 4,449 tickets were issued for the use of electronic devices while driving, nearly double from the same time period in 2011 when 2,300 tickets were issued. RCMP Supt. Norm Gaumont was “extremely disappointed” by those results. “They are putting the lives of others and their own at risk by not paying attention to the road,” he said in a news release. “Traffic patterns change very quickly, especially in an urban centre, as there is no time to put down your phone and react to the change,” he said. In 2011, distracted driving was a contributing factor in 45 per cent of all collisions reported in the Lower Mainland. The fine for using an electronic device without a handsfree unit while driving is $167.

Chilliwack Chief fans cheer their team during Tuesday night’s 3-1 win over the powerful Penticton Vees. The win evened the first-round play off series at two games apiece and guarantees at least one more home game. See story, page 34. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Collapsed berm ‘a top priority,’ says councillor Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Risk of spring flooding in Chilliwack is adding pressure to get a berm rebuilt quickly at Carey Point to keep the Fraser River at bay. It looks like the tide might be turning. Provincial reps this week pledged $25,000 to the repair effort with funding from Emergency Management B.C. “I did my best to find some money for this situation,” Chilliwack MLA John Les told the Progress. “It is unusual for

us to be funding this kind of thing. “We just wanted to signal that the provincial government is prepared to be part of the solution — even if it is in a small way.” Council voted Tuesday to have staff come up with an action plan to repair the berm, said Coun. Chuck Stam. “This is a top priority item for us and we consider it urgent,” he said. “They’ll spend the next week studying it and seeing if they can get matched funds.” There have already been reports of high snow pack levels in Fraser watersheds.

“So it’s very likely it will flood if we don’t do anything,” said Stam. Council members thanked the provincial government for the $25,000 funding gesture in chambers Tuesday, and took it further by committing up to $125,000 under the proposed action plan. The money would come from city reserves, he said. The hope is that EMBC will come forward once again with a green light to cover the other $125,000 to complete the repair work on an emergency basis.

water. A working group of affected property owners, city and government reps have been meeting since 2011 on the issue, but the city has always maintained that owners would have to cover the costs themselves. But something has changed. Les said there are always “good, better and best” solutions to these kinds of problems, likening it to choosing between “Chevy or Cadillac” engineering options. “We need to focus on a very basic solution here to an immediate problem,” he said. Farmer John van den Brink said he and other members of the working group were happy to see so support from city councillors and the province finally. “Ever yone is in agreement we need to do something,” he said. But the various levels of government have been going back and forth over the issue since last summer with no resolution in sight even up until last week. “They did nothing about this for eight months, and now they’re worried that they’ve run out of time?” he said. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

Federal and provincial ministers signed a new 20-year RCMP contract today, ushering in what B.C. cities hope will be a new relationship with the Mounties and much better control over spiraling police costs. City councils, which got their first look at the full text last week, have until the end of April to ratify the agreement themselves. Any city that doesn’t like it can terminate their RCMP service and form a municipal police force or partner with an existing one. Cities will also get a two-year opt out option going forward and a review of the contract is promised every five years, allowing it to be re-opened. “We are creating far more transparency and accountability in policing,” B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said at a signing ceremony with federal Public Safety Minister Vic Toews at the Surrey detachment, the country’s largest. “For the first time we will have the ability to question costs, to look at breakdowns of costs, to say do we really need to have those kinds of things take place in British Columbia.” Toews said it’s also in Ottawa’s interest to rein in costs. Officials say the deal finally puts cities in better position to control costs and plan for them, rather than simply paying whatever bills are sent to them. “This is a major shift from what we had before,” said Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, the civic observer in the talks. Many cities have seen their RCMP costs – usually the biggest item in a municipal budget – climb six to seven per cent each year. That’s not as severe as some unionized municipal forces, where costs have climbed by up to 14 per cent a year in some cases. But municipalities have a wary eye on whether Mounties form a union, a scenario that would sharply drive up costs. At the heart of the deal is a new B.C. local government contract management committee with 10 reps from cities who are promised much more hands-on control of spending changes, instead of just an advisory role. It’s still unclear, however, whether cities can ultimately refuse to pay costs they object to – Fassbender said the hope is RCMP decisions will be shaped by civic input well before that point. They’ll also be privy to the RCMP’s five-year financial plans so cities can better prepare for cost changes. Previously, cities had no say on national programs, they were given only a one-year planning horizon on costs, and had no ability to review programs, detachment administration levels or challenge service delivery methods.

Funding not tied to byelection: Les Robert Freeman The Progress The quality of the projects, not a looming byelection, is the reason behind a flurry of recent government funding announcements, says Chilliwack MLA John Les. Five projects, from Chilliwack to Boston Bar, were approved for funding totalling $1.8 million, with Les attending three of those announcements on Monday. But the much-anticipated byelection in Chilliwack-Hope had nothing to do with the funding, Les said. “What this has to do with is the premier’s announcement of $30 million for recreation programs at the UBCM last September,” he said. Premier Christy Clark announced the fund to provide B.C. families with more access to recreation facilities to promote healthy lifestyles. “Just because there’s a byelection on the horizon doesn’t mean that (communities in the riding) are cut off from funding,” Les said. And the announcements were being made “all over the province” last weekend, he added, not just in

the Chilliwack-Hope riding. Applications by communities for the funding started in November, and Les said he suspected the program was “significantly oversubscribed.” “I was pretty happy some worthwhile projects around the region got funded,” he said. Those projects included $250,000 for Townsend Park in Chilliwack, $400,000 towards a new indoor recreation facility in Harrison Hot Springs, $750,000 towards expansion of a gymnasium and multi-purpose rooms

Charges recommended against Chilliwack RCMP member Charges are being recommended for the Chilliwack RCMP member who was involved in a fatal crash in Agassiz last July. The incident was being investigated by the Abbotsford Police Department, who released a statement on Wednesday with their conclusion. “After a thorough examination of the evidence by Major Crime Unit detectives and Collision Reconstructionists, the Abbotsford Police Department has forwarded a report to Crown

Counsel recommending a Motor Vehicle Act charge of Driving without Due Care and Attention,” it reads. Crown Counsel will now decide how to proceed. The fatal collision took place the evening of July 12, on the Lougheed Highway near Bodnar Road in Agassiz. An RCMP patrol vehicle was being driven by an officer responding to a dispatched call. The emergency equipment — lights and sirens — was not running prior to the impact. The RCMP

vehicle crossed entirely into the oncoming lane and struck a Ford Mustang that had two occupants, Steven Genberg and Jonathan Dauphney. Genberg, 20 year old man from Mission, died a few days later in hospital. The police vehicle was traveling at about 99 km/hr at the time of impact, and the Mustang was traveling eastbound between 60 to 74 km/hr. The area of the collision is a 80 km/ hr zone.

Teachers plan their next move TEACHERS from p3 and if they continue not to pay, they will be held in criminal contempt. “It’s frightening,” said Midzain. “I honest to God don’t know what these next months are going to be.” The BCTF will also be mount-

ing a legal challenge to the Bill 22 legislation, which was passed by the Liberal government last week. In light of all this, teachers will be preparing end-of-year report cards, but will not be writing retroactive report cards.

Paramount supporters have until June Notice of Filming Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Council will be issuing another request for proposals that could end up saving the Paramount Theatre building from the wrecking ball. The official closing date for the new RFP will be June 21. “It’s a 90-day window that comes with the stipulation that no city

funds will be forthcoming for either the restoration or operation of the building,” said Coun. Chuck Stam. The terms are “pretty wide open,” and he said he doesn’t see it as being “too prescriptive.” Last month, Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount group successfully obtained the 90 days they asked for to come up with a busi-

ness plan to stave off demolition. Since then offers of help, support and inkind donations have been pouring in from various business people and contractors. Follow the Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount group on Facebook. “They asked for time. We gave them time,” said Stam. “Now I’m looking forward to

seeing what that passion of the group will yield in terms of a reuse plan.” Although no one wants to see a building come down that has potential for re-use, as a careful “steward of tax dollars,” Stam said he couldn’t justify monthly bills to keep the dilapidated building empty.

There will be a night shoot filming at

6110 Lougheed Highway in Agassiz. From approximately 6:00pm on Friday, March 23rd until approximately 6:00am, Saturday, March 24th. There will be traffic controlled from Else Road to Ashton Road with intermittent traffic detours from 5:30pm until 8:00pm & full detours from 8:00pm until 6:00am. The area surrounding our filming will be brighter yet foggier than usual.

Balancing safety If a government wants to jeopardize its chances of being elected, or re-elected, it only has to tick off senior citizens. And a terribly effective way of ticking seniors off is by taking away their drivers licence. The B.C. government is now back-pedalling on use of the DriveABLE program for drivers 80 and over. The computer-based test is intended to assess a driver’s cognitive ability. Seniors all over the province, including some here in Chilliwack, (Seniors vent about driving test, Chilliwack Progress, March 20) have been voicing their frustration with DriveABLE, stating it’s unfair, costly ($50 for the first test, more than $300 the second), and inconvenient. Responding to the outcry, B.C. Justice Minister and Attorney General Shirley Bond announced Monday that the government would be making changes to how it tests seniors over 80, a key one being that drivers licences will no longer be revoked based on computer testing alone. (Elderly drivers offered road test option, Progress, March 20.) No doubt this will help appease our road-worthy octogenarians, who know well the lesson of the squeaky wheel, especially with a government that will need their votes come 2013. That said, with a mass of baby boomers beginning to retire, and the steadily-growing population in the Lower Mainland, the B.C. government isn’t about to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Instead, the award-winning DriveABLE program is itself being assessed. This, hopefully, will result in a program that is fair and respectful to seniors, while helping to ensure the roads are safer for everyone. ~ Black Press

Connecting British Columbia students with jobs VICTORIA – The noise of the teachers’ strike drowned out debate on the B.C. budget so thoroughly that one of Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s more controversial ideas only made the news last week. Reporters dubbed it “Welfare Air.” Falcon plans a pilot program to offer social assistance recipients training and airfare if they can line up a job in B.C.’s northern energy boomtowns. Workers are being imported to fill jobs there, while in Metro Vancouver and elsewhere the number of single employable people applying for social assistance is rising. Much of oil and gas work is dirty and dangerous. These days most industrial jobs involve sophisticated electronics, and the technical skill level required is high. But there are entry-level jobs going begging, and relatively high pay is offered to fill posi-

tions in a short-staffed service sector in the Peace region. NDP MLA Carole James, no stranger to northern B.C., dismissed Falcon’s plan as a stunt. There are unemployed people in the region who should be offered training before we star t flying people up from Vancouver, James said. Yet I repeatedly hear from northTom ern employers FLETCHER that the labour shortage is real and growing. The NDP warns that B.C. faces a future of “people without jobs, and jobs without people.” Mostly they blame the B.C. Liberals for removing apprenticeship programs from union control. I spoke with James about post-

secondar y needs a couple of weeks ago. She mentioned NDP leader Adrian Dix’s signature policy to restore B.C. student grants, funded by a capital tax on financial institutions. She also agreed that part of the problem is young people taking post-secondary education that leads to fields with poor job prospects. I suggested that if B.C. taxpayers are to increase their subsidy to post-secondary students, already worth about two thirds of their schooling costs, perhaps grants could be targeted to areas of pressing economic need. To my surprise, James agreed that is worth considering. This is significant, not only because it is likely to be unpopular in the education establishment. There is a good chance that James, a former school trustee, will be B.C.’s education minister in 14 months. After writing about the labour

shortage last week, I was bombarded with messages from an irate Vancouver high school teacher who mocked the whole notion as corporate propaganda. No labour shortage exists, globally or in B.C., he claimed. Rather, “capitalists” of the “one per cent” have tried to “vocationalize” public education for a century, but the “people” have always “resisted.” Radical socialists aside, why would matching student aid to employment demand be unpopular with teachers? Education Minister George Abbott offered a clue during the lengthy debate over ending the teachers’ strike. Abbott noted that for ever y three teachers coming out of B.C. universities, there is currently only one job available. Certainly student debt is an issue worth discussing. And most

would agree it’s easier to pay off loans if one can find a job in one’s field upon graduation. Should further subsidies go to soon-tobe-unemployed teachers? No. Our education system trains too many people for what they want to do, rather than what the economy needs. And our economy definitely does not need more kids taught Marxist claptrap. Further to that, a tax on banks will be popular with some of today’s students, who protested against capitalism in the “occupy” camps that will resume as the weather improves. Others will examine the idea and conclude that financial institutions will recover the tax from customers, and perhaps find ways to get the job done with fewer employees.

Environment needs protecting posal sites. Not to be outdone by the yard-waste dumpers, others bring their broken microwaves, TV sets, defunct washing machines and mattresses. Then the wonderful folks that bring illicit drugs to our fair city bring their buckets of drug manufacturing chemicals and highly fertilized potting soil to be tossed into the river. Our MP informs us that the Fisheries Act is outdated and must address current issues by removing habitat protec-

tion as part of their mandate. Unfortunately I have to agree with him as DFO has steadfastly refused to protect habitat for countless years. By removing habitat protection from the Fisheries Act the government avoids those pesky private prosecutions brought by the likes of Alexandra Morton. It is quite astounding, actually, that humans as a species are so ignorant that we have to pass laws to protect the environment. Gordon Haddow

An education in spending Open letter to school board: I understand that while local teachers had upped the ante and gone out on a full-scale threeday walkout, the whole support staff reported for “regular” duties. That meant custodians, education assistants, maintenance workers, bus drivers, and secretaries, etc; showing up!

All this to a deserted house. The schools were practically empty. No kids. Reminds me of the City of Montreal for once plowing the sidewalks with no snow. “City snowplows driving on city sidewalks with their plow blades down pushing absolutely nothing.” You really can’t make this stuff up.

Located in Chilliwack, Cascades Lodge is a state of the art care facility offering full residential complex care.

At least over here, some of the school bus drivers were shown busy honing their driving skills during those days. I’m sure the rest of the workers would have preferred to have done something more useful to earn their keep. So, trustees, the next time you get the urge to complain about the funding shortfall, think

efficiency. When cost pressures of providing education outstrip the funds provided, learn to do more with less. Manage resources properly. Remember, it’s the wasteful school spending that’s burdening the system. Thank you. Lal Sharma, ph.d. Chilliwack

Ah, the first breaths of spring are upon us. The buds are starting to swell and the snow is slowly receding up the mountain sides. And the good citizens of Chilliwack flock to the banks of the greatest salmon river on the planet to dump their yard waste. I also notice that those who populate the roads that run adjacent to the sloughs feel that they have the right to use them as their own private dis-

Build on the success ‘Devalued’ teachers of Party in the Park have right to complain What a wonderful sight it was to experience and see the city dwellers come out to the Party in the Park, August 2011. And now the intention is to repeat that in both July and August this year,2012. In the interests of attracting more folks to enjoy the City Park why not capitalize on this also as an occasion to lure more folks into the downtown. One need only to stroll the streets and peer into the many very attractive shops, restaurants, boutiques, salons, barber shops, art gallery, etc. and take advantage of the many services available. An idea I had why not encourage the public to see for themselves the many attractive offerings by designating the Saturdays afternoons of July and August aside and invite/organize the many talented small musical groups, choirs, giving them exposure to their offerings at designated locations to perform. These would have an opportunity to market their recordings during which time the public would be invited to experience the musical background entertainment and the downtown commerce. Just an idea ?

I will not attack Tom Fletcher for his defence of the BC Liberal government and its attempt to prove that it is pretending to be fiscally conservative by picking a fight with teachers in this province. I will not question whether or not he has children in the school system or whether or not he felt he was wrongly picked on by left-wing teachers when he was a child—hopefully, he has an employee assistance plan that will pay for his access to the necessary counseling. But I suspect, being the obvious selfish what’sin-it-for-me BC Liberal sycophant that he is, that he would not continue working for his employer, if his employer so disvalued his worth that it offered him a net-zero increase in his pay. Being the free enterprise Ayn Rand disciple, he would go on strike and cease benefitting society. Atlas shrugged, and if it wasn’t for teachers who gave more than net-zero, idiots of the world would not have a column to write in, and no one would be able to read their crap.

Neighbours Through tough times with Allen Clapp

Allen Clapp’s first job earned him four dollars a month. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Find A Home TO CALL YOUR OWN!

The stock market crash of 1929 ushered in the Great Depression. Canada was hit hard by this economic misfortune but life on the Prairies was especially difficult. Certain areas became dust bowls, there was plenty of social upheaval and prices for agricultural products plummeted. Young men rode the

rails across the country looking for work and in many areas; work was hard to come by. For many, the Dirty Thirties were severe and for Allen Clapp this crisis is best left forgotten. As we took time to discuss that period in our history, he leaned back, quietly reflected, grimaced and admitted that life had been rather unpleasant

and harsh at times. “It’s nice to be away from it, that’s for sure. Life was rather basic. You worked hard just to survive,” he said. The eldest of six children, Allen was raised on a homestead just north of Peers, a hamlet in the west central part of Alberta. “At first, I took correspondence courses and my mom was the teacher,” he laughed. Eventually, his father would help build the community’s oneroom school that housed about 14 children at the time. “I was about nine by the time that it was built. When I was 11 years old, I became the school’s janitor. The school had no electricity and no heat. I would carry water into the

school and on cold days, I arrived an hour early so that I could get the fire going. I earned four dollars a month for 10 months. These were my first earnings,” he said humbly. The schoolhouse was two miles from the family home but through good Ana and bad weather, MACEDO Allen never missed a day of school. “I always walked and we had some pretty tough winters, too. I never got a ride.” There was little down time. Hard work was the order of any day. Still, Allen tried to make the best of things. “There was little money around in those days and I was just interested in making a living. This was the depression and we were on survival mode. I did enjoy the outdoors, though. I would go hiking with my rifle in hand. I hunted and trapped and made a bit of money.” Allen left school after Grade 8 and began logging in winter and harvesting in summer and fall. In 1944, he joined the army and was discharged a year later, when the war ended. He had a keen interest in business and decided to attend Business College in Calgary. “I wanted to get into bookkeeping and accounting. It was a 10-month course but I finished it in five months.” After graduating, he was hired by Union Packing in Calgary. Shortly after, he moved to Brooks to take on a bookkeeping position with a construction company but ended up moving back to Calgary a short time later to begin work for an oil drilling company. This same company transferred him to Lloydminster and six months later he made the decision to join Husky Oil. “I wanted to move back to Calgary and ended up doing just that but eventually I wound up in Vancouver and got into the life insurance business,” he said.

He found out that this was his passion. “I loved figures and most importantly I loved working with people, face to face. I set up my own business in Vancouver and eventually sold it and moved out to Chilliwack. The Clapp family moved to the Fraser Valley, built a new house and Allen started a new company. “When I first started up Rainbow Country Financial & Retirement Planning, I started off with no clients but built it up to 200 clients. In addition to my practice, I also did financial and retirement planning seminars and wrote articles on the topic. Of course, I was doing all of this when it

wasn’t a commonplace thing to do,” he said. There is no question that Allen was a hard worker. He was up routinely at 5 a.m. and worked from home for a few hours before heading into the office. He would then put in a full day and would end up working at least two nights a week. “After my business became established, I start-

Peas a great cool weather garden crop We take many things for granted today, often not fully appreciating the amount of research, hard work or even the fascinating history behind some of our garden food plants. Take the garden pea for example. Our parents and grandparents planted them, but their history dates back a bit farther – pea seeds were found in an Egyptian tomb at Thebes! Garden peas, or Pisum sativum, are thought to have originated in the area around Pisa, Italy where they grew wild. The Greeks and Romans served boiled peas as a light refreshment during intermissions at their theatre presentations. Peas were a favourite early vegetable among Europeans, and various cultures adapted legends about peas. In Britain, a pod containing nine peas was considered lucky. Peas were also used as one of the many cures for warts. Each wart was supposed to be touched with a pea, that was then wrapped in paper and buried. As the pea decayed in the ground, the wart was supposed to disappear. In the language of flowers, the pea is a symbol of respect, and it’s the birthday flower of February 17th. The garden pea we all know and

Peas were a favourite early vegetable among Europeans, and various cultures adapted legends about peas, writes Brian Minter enjoy today, was developed in England and was one of the first crops planted in the New World. Garden peas are one of the most widely grown and most healthy of all garden vegetables. They are rich in nutrients, containing phosphorus, potassium and vitamins A, B and C. Peas are high in carbohydrates, but fortunately, low in calories. One cup of peas has only 45 calories. They also contain nutritious amounts of fiber, folic acid, amino acids and protein. Peas are a cool crop vegetable, and as soon as all danger of heavy frost has passed, they can be planted. In Scotland, peas were never sown until the first swallow appeared, while in England, an old ditty advises to “Sow beans and peas on David and Chad (March 1st and 2nd), be the weather good or bad”. Although many good gardeners plant peas early, you can

space the plantings out to enjoy peas right through the summer. Peas prefer a well drained, shallow, sandy soil that both dries out and warms up quickly. They also like a new location in the garden each year, if possible. Peas do not thrive in acid soil, and an application of Dolomite lime is essential for both peas and beans. Also, avoid using compost. Many seed companies are promoting the use of nitrogen inoculants with pea crops. These are simply granules of live nitrogen-fixing bacteria. In general, they improve the growth of peas and are supposed to increase crop yields. Peas should be planted about two inches deep and about two inches apart. For maximum space usage, plant in wide three-foot rows, keeping each row about 18 inches apart. Raised beds are beneficial to many gar-

den vegetables, and peas are no exception. Soil levels, raised six to eight inches above ground level, will raise the temperature of the soil from eight to 13 degrees Fahrenheit. There are a number of good pea varieties, and it can take you several years to try them all! I’ve seen many oldtimers grow beautiful crops of Telephone peas on poles, which makes a fine garden feature, but most of us simply don’t have enough room in a small garden. ‘Little Marvel’ is an old dwarf pea that requires very little staking. I think, however, that the best dwarf peas are the ‘Sugar Snap’ varieties. ‘Sugar Ann’, ‘Honey Pod Dwarf’ and ‘Sweet Snap’ are three award winning varieties, and their flavour is superb. For patio pots, the new award winner, ‘Patio Wonder’, is amazing. Grown well, it will produce for most of the summer. The great feature of these peas is the fact that you eat the pod and all, and they never get bitter or old tasting! Peas are an early cool crop, and they can be planted now. They will grow quickly to provide you with their uniquely delicious flavour.

Jumbo Glacier Resort finally given a green light By Tom Fletcher Black Press After 22 years of waiting and debating, the B.C. government has given approval for the Jumbo Glacier Resort proposal near Invermere. Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson and Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett made the announcement in Victoria

Tuesday, while NDP MLA Norm Macdonald led the latest protest in his home constituency of ColumbiaRevelstoke where the project is located. If it goes ahead as planned, Jumbo Glacier Resort would be the only glacier-based year-round ski resort in North America, roughly the size of Silver Star resort near Vernon and about one tenth the size

of Whistler. The master development plan approved by the government allows for phased development of 6,250 beds, up to 23 ski lifts and a 3,000 metre-high gondola overlooking a glacier-fed lake. Thomson said the latest delay came after the Ktunaxa Nation declared the resort area a spiritually significant site in 2009. There has been extensive consulta-

tion with the Ktunaxa and Shuswap Indian Band based in Invermere on the proposal, and the B.C. goverrnment’s legal advice is that the spiritual declaration does not represent a valid territorial claim, Thomson said. A wildlife management zone will be established in the region, to protect the three to four grizzly bears that have been identified by DNA test-

Fred’s

ing and the rest of the local wildlife, Thomson said. Macdonald said it was “tremendously disrespectful to make this announcement in Victoria instead of coming and facing the people of this valley.” Bennett said a local announcement would have produced “1,000 people on either side of the street” continuing the argument that has

divided the region for two decades. Bennett credited the tenacity of resort developer Oberto Oberti, who first identified the site as an architect working for Japanese investors more than two decades ago. Oberti is hoping to have major construction complete by 2014, when the project’s environmental permit is due to expire.

News Nominations for UFV distinguished alumni The University of the Fraser Valley now has thousands of alumni living and working locally and around the world. Once again, it’s time recognize alumni of distinction by nominating them for a UFV Distinguished Alumni award. New this year is a category for young alumni. “As we are still a fairly young university, many of our alumni are under the age of 35 and haven’t yet had careers that stretch into the decades,” notes UFV alumni manager Nancy Armitage. “But that doesn’t mean they haven’t had time for significant achievements. We thought it was fitting to create a new category just for younger alumni.” The traditional Distinguished Alumni Award will be conferred upon a graduate of the institution who has achieved outstanding distinction in career, educational achievement, or community service. The second award, the Young Distinguished Alumni award, will go to a graduate of UFV who is 34 years of age or younger and who has achieved outstanding distinction in the above categories. Both awards recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of exceptional alumni. Winners of these awards will join the ranks of past recipients including human rights and immigration lawyer, Shirzad Ahmed (UT ’92), TV and film producer Mary Anne Waterhouse (Dip’86), writer and editor TerryLynn Stone (BA ’98), and the Abbotsford Police sergeant Amar Kingra

(Cert.’94). The deadline for application is April 1, 2012. You don’t have to have attended UFV to nominate a distinguished alumnus. Nominators may be UFV employees, students, alumni, board members, or mem-

age you to nominate them. All nominees will be honored and celebrated at our annual awards event in the fall. Nomination application and criteria are available here: www.ufv.ca/DAA . Deadline for nominations is April 1.

SFU criminologist Rob Gordon said Bond’s claim B.C. was pursuing a “plan B” was likely nothing but “sabre-rattling.” But he contends the province should still look at creating regional police forces for Metro Vancouver and Greater Victoria to end a “patchwork” of RCMP and municipal police jurisdictions.

Vocal variety and versatility at Voices concert Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Look forward to a showcase of tones, tunes and terrific voices. The March 31 concert at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre by the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus is aptly named Voices. “I thought it was time to have a concert dedicated to the glorious singing voice,” said CSO music director Paula DeWit. “What a gift to be able to sing and to be able to sing well.” The program spotlight is on vocal variety and musical versatility. Dulcet notes of the harp by Miya Otake will greet audience members. Groups ready to grace the stage range from Belle Voci, ladies Show Choir, to the CSO F I N E

W I N E

& Chorus, as well as soloists and duets. “There is nothing as magical as live performance,” said DeWit. The evening will open with the overture from Mozart’s delightful opera, The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflote, K620), written in 1791. Shane Hanson, Tamara Wilhelm and Bevin van Liempt will feature some of the most well-loved selections. The Chorus will be singing one of Mozart’s sacred works, AveVerum Corpus in D major (K 618). “Carl Maria von Weber’s Jagerchor (Huntsmen’s Chorus) from Der Freischutz, Wagner’s Pilgrim’s Chorus from Tannhauser and Bach’s Wachet will be sung by our very own male chorus.

thinking about fitness, and are not in this stage of change. I rarely get the opportunity to meet with people in the pre-contemplation stage, since the act of calling me or searching for fitness opportunities implies a contemplation of change. If you are in the pre-contemplation stage (perhaps someone is forcing you to read this), or if you know someone who should start exercising, but has no intention to start, a good beginning is to increase awareness of the importance of healthy habits. It is not realistic to try and move a precontemplator to action with advice. The idea is to be a listening ear and be there to help the person when they do decide to take a step towards action. The next stage of change is ‘Contemplation’. In this stage one has intention to change, but not right away. They might have mixed feeling about exercise, and not be very confident that change is possible. If you are in the contemplation stage, now is the time to list all the ‘pros‘ and ‘cons‘ for change. In one column, write down all you reasons why you want to get into better shape. It might be to feel amazing in a bikini on your vacation in Mexico, to reduce your blood pressure, or, to set a good example for your children. Writing your ‘reasons why’ is a great exercise to do regardless if you are thinking about exercising, or already partaking in a fitness program. I regularly use this exercise

Motivation comes from the root word motive, or ‘something that causes a person to act in a certain way or do a certain thing’. When it comes to health and fitness, motivation is what gets you started on a fitness program and healthy eating plan. It’s what moves someone from a sedentary lifestyle to an active lifestyle, from a diet of processed, foods to whole, energizing foods. In this article, I will focus on finding that initial motivation to get started, and Tanja provide some practiSHAW cal exercises to help you get motivated. Motivation to exercise stems from a desire to change: either to move toward something positive (e.g. Being healthy and fit), or to move away from something negative (e.g. Avoiding disease, avoiding weight gain). Psychologists describe the desire to change with ‘The Stages of Change’ model. There are five stages of change. Today, I will tackle the first three. The first stage of change is ‘Precontemplation’. In this stage, the subject does not act or think about change. One may be unaware of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, be satisfied with current state of health, or may simply not care to change. Chances are, if you are willfully reading this article, you are at least

Preparation describes one who may have tried to change in the past year, may already be making small changes, or intends to change in the next few weeks.

Chilliwack goaltender Mitch Gillam has been a busy guy in the Chiefs first round playoff series versus Penticton. Gillam has made a handful of eye-popping saves, but his defence has also done an excellent job containing the high octane Vees offence.

period two. The Chiefs came up empty on three power plays, but scored twice seconds after penalties had elapsed. The first came as Johnston stepped out of the box after serving a kneeing minor. Chilliwack defenceman Alex Perron-Fontaine nabbed a loose puck, darted behind the Penticton net and came out the other side with a wrap-around, stuffing the puck into the cage to put the Chiefs up by two. The second came as Mike Reilly stepped out of the box after serving a double minor for high sticking. Gould

threw the puck on net from the right corner, and Derek Huisman out-fought a pair of Penticton defenders to punch it past Katunar. Chilliwack out-shot the Vees 18-7 in period two. The Chiefs started the third period on the penalty kill, with 1:14 still remaining in a Ty Miller holding minor. Vees coach Fred Harbinson employed some interesting strategy on the PP, pulling Katunar to get a sixon-four advantage. But Chilliwack held on and Katunar returned to his net the second Miller got out of the box. Penticton crept one

goal closer at the 2:18 mark of period three on a goal by Mario Lucia, who scored on a wrist shot from the Home Depot ad, about 15 feet inside the Chiefs blueline. The Vees spent the next four minutes blitzing the Chilliwack net, but couldn’t get closer. The Chiefs settled down, and then got some help from Johnston, whose goalie interference penalty came at the most inopportune time. Chiliwack didn’t score on the PP, but it did keep Penticton on the defensive for two minutes. The penalty ended and the Vees pulled

Katunar with 1:35 left, but the Chiefs weathered one final storm to escape with another unlikely win. Who saw any of this coming? Game five of this series is Thurdsay night in Penticton, scene of Chilliwack’s memorable 3-2 overtime win in game two. If the Chiefs were intimidated at all playing in the South Okanagan Events Centre, that Trevor Hills snipe might have removed the fear. “I’d say it helps, and it feels great to win in their barn,” Miller said. “It’s loud and the fans are crazy, but we’re hoping we get a Chilliwack

fan bus joining us up there to give us some hometown support.” Game six is back in Chilliwack Friday night, where Chiefs fans will have another opportunity to blow the lid off Prospera Centre. The atmosphere in the rink Tuesday night was electric, and Miller wants to see that, and more, in game six. “The community has supported us all year, and the atmosphere right now is the best I’ve ever been in,” the captain said. “They’re a crazy group and we’re thankful for their support. We’re an energy team and we build off what they do.”

Holdsworth now looks forward to either a match or an open spar at the Combsports April 6 show at the Langley Cascade Casino.

Basketball Cascades land two new recruits Dan Kinvig, Black Press University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball coach Barnaby Craddock has said all along that he believes the Cascades could win a national championship with local talent as the foundation. They came mighty close this past season, finishing fourth at CIS nationals in Halifax with a roster featuring eight Fraser Valley high school products. Craddock continued to build on that foundation this week, securing commitments from Rav Dhaliwal and Max Neuman. Dhaliwal, a 6’8” post player out of Tamanawis Secondary, seems to be cut from the same cloth as current Cascades power forward Kyle Grewal. In addition to hailing from Surrey (Grewal attended Enver Creek Secondary), both players boast the multifaceted offensive skill set to hit the three-point shot, face up, and operate in the post. “And he’s substantially bigger and stronger than Kyle was in Grade 12,” Craddock said of Dhaliwal, a member of the B.C. under-17 team who averaged 15.8 points and nine rebounds per game and shot 48.1 per cent from the floor in his senior year at Tamanawis. “I think his experience with Basketball B.C. and playing at the national championships was big for his development.” Neuman, a 6’3” shooting guard, is coming off a terrific season with the Maple Ridge Ramblers where he averaged 21 points, seven rebounds and four assists per game.

Tackling Everest at Whistler Eric J. Welsh, The Progress The distance from the base of Mt. Everest to the peak is 30,000 feet. It is still considered the Holy Grail of mountaineering, the climb that best tests physical and mental endurance. Of course, not every one has the time or money for a trip to Nepal. And so, three members of the Chilliwack Outdoor Club did the next best thing, Everest at Whistler. “The longest blue/ black run at Whistler Blackcomb is the Peak to Creek, which is 5,020 feet,” Ron Dart explained. “So we did it six times.” Dar t, John Laframboise and Jonathan Mitchell started out bright and early one morning in early March. They took three lifts to the top and started down on their first run, ploughing through 60 to 70 kilometre per hour winds. “The upper part is quite steep and the wind was blowing across us,” Dart said. “It was like skiing through a snow tunnel, with very lean visibility, before we got into the forested area.” Peak to Creek shapes up in three stages — a waist-deep snow river at the top, a mogully middle and a flat finish. There are benches on the way down on the assumption that skiers will need a rest. “Coming down the steep part, navigating so you don’t fly off somewhere, that’s tiring on the legs,” Dart said. “You’re moving at pace, weaving, twisting, bending. It’s quite a workout and it leaves your legs feeling like Jello.” The men did four runs, covering 20,000 feet or 28 kilometres before finally taking a break. “The blood sugar was getting low and we were perspiring quite a bit, so we grabbed a quick lunch,” Dart said. “We were all wobbly and weak after four runs, but it had to be a quick lunch so our muscles wouldn’t seize up on us.” Then back up they went. “It took about 12 or 13 minutes on each descent,” Dart said. “Most people stop five

or six times on the way down because of leg burn, and most people are happy just doing that run once. Doing that six times, that’s not typical.” The men finished up by 2:30 p.m., then paid for it the next day with legs that felt like tree trunks. “It was challenging to the body, mind and imagination,” Dart said. “We wanted to try it and see if our legs could carry us, and we succeeded.” And now, they move on to part two. If all went as planned, the trio were back on the mountain today, doing Everest at Whistler on an even tougher Olympic run. If you see any of them tomorrow, odds are they won’t be walking around too much. The Chilliwack Outdoor Club has over 150 members from all parts of the Fraser Valley. The club schedules a variety of activities including hiking and backpacking, technical climbing, cycling, kayaking and canoeing, downhill and cross country skiing and snow shoeing. Fees are $35.00 per year, effective from the date of joining. Find info at chilliwackoutdoorclub.com.

Best series ever? I won’t let myself think about what might happen in the rest of the series, writes Jacob Bestebroer I’m a sucker for lists. Top five lists, top 10 or 20. I like them all. I love reading them, making them and debating them. Of course many of the lists I constantly find myself making and or debating are related to hockey and more specifically junior hockey. Even MORE specifically, Chilliwack Chiefs junior hockey. I’ve used this column to share some of them; top 10 Chiefs goal scorers, playmakers etc. The one mistake I try to avoid in my habitual listing of things is to not make quick judgements on events that have just happened or are happening. Right now, the list that I’m thinking most about is top Chiefs playoff series and where this Chilliwack versus Penticton series, currently tied 2-2, will end up fitting in. I won’t let myself think about what might happen in the rest of the series. After it’s over, then the debate can begin in earnest. But even then there needs to be some time elapsed before slotting it in. In last week’s column I used a few examples of Chiefs playoff series past to show that things do not always go as they are expected to in Chiefs playoff series. Two of those series I mentioned are currently tied for top spot on my list, and yes, having a list include a tie is a cop out. Currently, in my opinion, Chilliwack versus Kelowna in 1995 and Chilliwack versus Surrey in 1999 are tied for first. (I can hear the ‘What? No Chilliwack versus Drayton Valley in 2002?’ cries from long time Chiefs fans. I have that at number three but would not argue with anyone who considers it number one). Both the Kelowna and Surrey series were series that Chilliwack was not expected to win and both were against teams that had appeared in the previous year’s national championship. Chilliwack won them both in seven games in the other team’s rink. Both series featured epic overtime games. Game six versus Kelowna on home ice went three overtimes before Shawn York ended it. Jeff Yopyk ended the series versus Surrey in overtime of game seven. But the best part of those two series was the support of Chiefs fans which was incredible both home and away. Game seven in Surrey was sold out. Half the people there were Chiefs fans. You can see why it’s hard to choose between the two but if anyone can help me break my tie at number one I would love to hear from you. I have spent way too much time trying to do it myself. The Chiefs current series versus Penticton has been great through four games and again Chiefs fans are a big part of it. The atmosphere at Prospera Centre for games three and four was electric. Game six is Friday night at Prospera Centre. One team will be facing elimination. I can’t wait. Feedback can be sent to jb@chilliwackchiefs.net.

✞ Obituaries HAMILTON Reginald George

Mar. 13, 1938 - Mar. 14, 2012 Dad passed away one day after his 74th birthday. He and his twin brother Ron were born HAMILTON in the Chilliwack General hospital and Reg lived his entire life in Chilliwack. His grandparents settled in the Rosedale area in 1886. Hi is survived by his daughter Carmen, son Sandy (Chantal) and granddaughter Alexis Hamilton. In 1962 he started Hamilton Trucking. Many years were spent hauling produce and silage for York Farms, Fraser Vale and Royal City. In the off season he hauled sand and gravel providing trucks for highway projects such as the Hope slide, Coquihalla and highway overpasses. His love of animals began early as a member of the 4-H Swine and Beef Club. He raised prize winning Yorkshire pigs and showed them at all the local fairs and the PNE. For the next 50 years he was actively involved with the Chilliwack Agricultural Society, the Chilliwack Riding Club; youth rodeo and

his beloved barrel racers. He was a founding member of the Chilliwack District Horse Council and a long time president of the Chuck Wagon and Chariot Association. Since 1972 he devoted his spare time to developing and maintaining the equestrian facilities at Exhibition Park and more recently Heritage Park. In 1987, he was recognized for his efforts by receiving the “Sportsman of the Year” award and later the Canada 125th medal for outstanding community service. The thrill of chuck wagon and chariot racing led our family to many races and rodeos throughout BC and Alberta. His love of horses has been passed to his daughter and granddaughter and he leaves us with many precious memories. His two favourite 4-legged friends will miss him dearly. Dad was always quick with the wit and ready to offer his advice whether you wanted to hear it or not! We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Rusty and Clyde for their support during this time. Special thanks to all dad’s friends who visited during his stay at Hospice. Thank you to all the wonderful staff and volunteers especially nurse Jacqueline at Cascade Hospice. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

PILZ Victor Peter Nov. 15, 1947 - Mar. 14, 2012 It is with great sadness we must announce Victor passed away suddenly at the young age PILZ of 64. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, father, grandfather and friend. He was born in Schwabmunchen, Germany and came to Canada at 5 years of age in 1952. Victor was a successful baker and mason. In his retirement years he lived in Armstrong, BC on a farm with his son, David, taking care of the maintenance and animals on the farm, something he loved to do. It was not a job to him. There will be a celebration of life for Vic on Sunday, March 25th, 2012, 1:00-3:00pm at 46227 Third Avenue, Chilliwack, BC. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the BC SPCA on his behalf. This gesture would be greatly appreciated by the man who rescued many. One special animal was a horse named Bo that left with him on the same day so they could venture into a new future together. He leaves behind many family and friends. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
