Hang-gliding pilot apologizes for fatal flight: ‘Please believe me’

■ B RING O N T HE S UMMER

Robert Freeman The Progress Jon Orders, the pilot in a fatal hang-gliding incident, publicly apologized this week to the family and friends of 27-year-old Lenami Godinez-Avila who fell to her death during a tandem flight three weeks ago near Agassiz. “My intention was to give Lenami an amazing adventure and lots of smiles, but I failed in such a major way,” Orders said in a statement he read to Vancouver media late Monday. Orders, 50, did not take media questions, but also I want so much announced that he “cannot and to relive that will not” return to hang-gliding, day and to his “passion have it turn out for nearly 20 years.” differently “I want so much to relive ~ Jon Orders that day and to have it turn out differently,” he said in the statement. “Lenami was someone’s daughter and that I find especially difficult to deal with.” Orders’ own 12-year-old daughter was at the Mount Woodside launch site at the time of the April 28 flight. Orders said her presence added to his “panicked” decision to swallow a video camera memory card that recorded the flight. “I want to apologize to Lenami’s family, to the police and the public for my panicked action of swallowing the memory card as I did,” he said. “My 12-year-old daughter was present that day and made the situation even more stressful at the time.” Orders said he told police what he had done with the memory card “shortly afterwards” and gave them his “full cooperation” in retrieving it. Orders was charged with obstruction of justice for withholding the video evidence, and may face further charges depending on the outcome of an RCMP investigation.

Each year, during the off season, $1 million is spent to maintain and upgrade the water slides. Maintenance includes everything from winterizing the park in the fall to fixing leaks, having the park inspected, buffing and cleaning the slides, repairing steel structures, and draining, painting, cleaning and refilling the pools in the spring, says owner Chris Steunenberg. The water park opens for the 2012 season this Saturday. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Safety first on May long weekend: RCMP Robert Freeman The Progress Lost hikers, ATV accidents and fishing accidents have a way of marring the otherwise festive May long weekend in B.C. RCMP officials in the Fraser Valley are hoping this year will be different. “Our major focus this year will be patrolling the forest service roads on our ATVs and patrolling the lakes in our boats,” said Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth, RCMP spokesperson for the

Upper Fraser Valley detachment. All liquor, drug and firearmsrelated laws will be enforced with “zero tolerance” for violators, she said. “Open liquor will be seized and persons found in possession of open liquor in a public place will be subject to fines and legal action,” she said. All laws related to operating a vessel on B.C. waterways will also be enforced. A ban on overnight camping and parking along Vedder Road between the Vedder Bridge and

Tamihi Bridge will also be in effect. No camping is allowed in the area between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. Police are also warning visitors that parking regulations in Cultus Lake must be obeyed or violators will find vehicles towed away. More than 5,000 holidayers regularly flood the day-use areas at Cultus Lake during the May long weekend, and hundreds more pack the park’s campsites. The congestion is usually no different in other parks and campsites in the region — and

a drowning or a lost hiker can quickly turn a novel outdoor experience for a city-dweller into a tragedy. Police also issued a special safety precaution to fishermen and boaters to wear life jackets on water and on shore. “Too many lives lost last year were due to people not wearing life jackets,” Hollingsworth said. “The level of experience you have with boating or fishing doesn’t matter when the unexpected happens,” she said.

City, NDP hold off pipeline judgment Chilliwack will wait before taking stand on Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion plan Robert Freeman The Progress

Demonstrators march towards the Kinder Morgan Westridge Terminal in Burnaby in August 2011, to protest the company’s plans to expand its Alberta-B.C. pipeline. MARIO BARTEL/BLACK PRESS FILE

The crude politics and pressures behind the pipelines Kinder Morgan Canada announced last month it will seek to twin its Trans Mountain Pipeline, which runs through Chilliwack, between northern Alberta and Burnaby. The twinning would mean a huge increase in the amount of crude that transits the pipeline, and in the number of oil tankers passing through local waters each year. This third installment of a Black Press series looks at the politics of the pipeline, and possible alternatives.

Jeff Nagel Black Press Hundreds more oil tankers may soon ply B.C. waters to carry crude oil from Alberta’s oil sands to Asia via one of two very different routes. Most public focus so far has been on Enbridge’s controversial Northern Gateway project, which would run a new pipeline across northern B.C. to Kitimat. But several industry watchers rate that project — beset by opposition from environmental groups, northern communities and First Nations – as a long shot. Much more likely to proceed, they say, is Kinder Morgan’s potential expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline, which could mean a more than six-fold increase in the amount of oil now being exported by tankers out through Burrard Inlet. The politicking will be intense to persuade B.C. to accept at least Kinder Morgan’s proposal, if not both projects, to satisfy national strategic interests, according to SFU public policy professor Doug McArthur. “The federal government is increasingly committing itself to a

high level of expansion of the oil sands and making it almost the main economic issue in the country,” he said. “I think B.C. will be under tremendous pressure from the federal government.” The Enbridge pipeline faces huge hurdles. It is a new route across sensitive ecosystems, mountainous terrain and salmon-bearing rivers, all of it in the traditional territory of aboriginal bands that have come out staunchly against the project. By comparison, McArthur said Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion amounts to twinning its existing pipeline on an established right-of-way with few of the technical or legal challenges facing Enbridge. Tankers already carry oil on a shipping route and with procedures that are well established, in contrast to Enbridge, which would introduce big tankers to the more challenging waters of the north coast. “Kinder Morgan is the much easier one for them to get in place,” McArthur said. “In terms of picking the low-hanging fruit, I would think they would push very hard to get that one through. But I think they

want both.” Could B.C. say no to both pipelines and refuse to act as Canada’s oil port to Asia? McArthur predicts a provincial government that actively blocks both projects – rather than merely register its opposition – would feel Ottawa’s wrath. “There would be a huge battle,” he said, adding future federal grants and support might be at risk. “The federal government would pull out every possible means they have to make life very, very difficult for B.C.” CAUTIOUS WORDS

So far provincial officials have not taken a stand on the Northern Gateway proposal, despite pressure to do so. B.C. Energy Minister Rich Coleman is also circumspect on Kinder Morgan’s plans, but did note the Trans Mountain pipeline has a lengthy track record. “This one’s been in operation for a long time, and it does show that pipelines can operate safely for generations,” he said. “When I talk to people in my own riding, they have no idea that we have been bringing tankers into the Port of Vancouver for about 50 years.” A recent Mustel Group poll found Metro Vancouver residents were split on whether they support a Kinder Morgan expansion, increasing tanker visits to nearly 360 a year. Continued: OIL/ p4

Unlike Vancouver, Chilliwack’s city council is taking a waitand-see stance to the proposed twinning of the Kinder Morgan pipeline. “From Chilliwack’s perspective, Kinder Morgan has been a stellar corporate partner,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said. “I really think like every corporation that has been a good citizen, they have a right to be heard, and then we (council) have the right to make an informed decision,” she said. Gaetz met earlier this month with Kinder Morgan president Ian Anderson, and came away confident the city’s concerns about the potential impact to municipal dikes and water supply would be thoroughly addressed by the company. But Vancouver city councillors, voicing “strenuous opposition” to the increase in tanker traffic that will result if Kinder Morgan’s pipeline capacity is doubled, passed a motion calling for a bylaw that would hold the company liable for any damages from an oil spill. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robinson said in a published statement that he is “fiercely opposed” to the pipeline that will bring “nearly no jobs” to the city, and “put Vancouver’s thriving economy and global reputation at such serious risk.” The Vancouver Park board has also voted against the pipeline expansion. And while the BC NDP is officially opposed to the Enbridge pipeline that would carry Alberta oil across the province to Kitimat B.C., Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony said the party has not taken a similar position on the Kinder Morgan proposal. The difference is the Enbridge proposal is “further along” the road to construction, she said, while the Kinder Morgan pipeline is still in the early planning stage. “We’re waiting to see what the (Kinder Morgan) proposal is before we release any kind of a statement,” she said. But O’Mahony added that the Kinder Morgan pipeline still

deserves “a good, hard look” and she will be meeting with opponents of the twinning project to hear their concerns. “Both pipeline projects are to be taken very seriously,” she said. Sheila Muxlow, who has been organizing Fraser Valley opposition to the Kinder Morgan pipeline, said she is “frustrated” by the wait-and-see approach taken by the NDP and the City of Chilliwack. “It’s frustrating that there isn’t more of a commitment to really oppose Kinder Morgan from the get-go,” she said. Both pipelines are linked to the “devastating” tar sands industry, she said, and the Kinder Morgan project carries “the same risk” to Fraser Valley communities as Enbridge does in northern B.C. But former FVRD chair Patricia Ross, an envir onmental advocate who led the Fraser Valley’s fight against the Sumas II energy plant, agreed with the city’s decision to wait until the full Kinder Morgan plan is unveiled before judging its merits. “I’m not bothered by Chilliwack not taking a position yet,” she said. “You have a lot more credibility when you’ve got the details ... and can critique it on a very specific basis.” However, Ross, who is also a city councillor in Abbotsford, noted that municipality and the FVRD have both sent letters to Kinder Morgan highlighting concerns which will require “consultation at the highest level” by the company. “If you don’t say anything, it doesn’t necessarily require the same level of heightened consultation,” she said. Consultation is otherwise a “subjective” thing, she said, as the FVRD discovered in its dealings with Metro Vancouver around waste-to-energy incinerators. Chilliwack city council has not yet discussed sending a similar letter to Kinder Morgan. FVRD concerns about the pipeline include the numerous streams it must cross and its impact on rare and endangered animal species in the region. Continued: WAIT/ p5

Opposition energy critic John Horgan, who may chart B.C.’s course on the issue if the NDP take power in 2013, said there is anxiety in the NDP caucus and the broader public about the volume of oil that would be shipped through sensitive waters. “It is cause for concern,” he said, adding he will wait to see Kinder Morgan’s formal proposal, which could be two years away, before taking a position. He noted the existing pipeline does provide benefits – refining jobs in Burnaby and lowerpriced gas as a result – that should be maintained. The NDP opposes Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline, he said, because it offers B.C. only risk and is strongly opposed in the northwest. “Our view is that’s a non-starter,” Horgan said. “Kinder Morgan is a more complicated question, and one that has a track record of 50 years of more or less unblemished activity. So we’ll have to measure that

when the time comes.” He said B.C. needs to better understand tanker traffic risks and how to address them. “There’s going to be an increase in volume, so does that increase the risk? Yes it does, but we can measure that once we’ve got a clear understanding of what the increase in tanker traffic will really mean.” B.C. Conser vative leader John Cummins has come out in support of the Enbridge pipeline, but the former commercial fisherman is more cautious about the Kinder Morgan expansion. “There’s huge issues there with the shipping through Vancouver harbour and those issues have to be addressed,” he said. “We’d be supportive,” Cummins said. “But they’d have to satisfy concerns about increased tanker traffic.” REVIEWS REQUIRED

Kinder Morgan formally announced its Trans Mountain expansion plan April 12, kicking off 18 to 24 months of public consultations with affected communities and First Nations.

That would be followed by an application to the National Energy Board, leading to NEB hearings like those underway on the Enbridge pipeliine. A federal environmental assessment would also be required, but environmental groups have long distrusted them. Now they point to provisions in the federal budget to speed up major project reviews and scrutinize the charitable status of environmental non-profits as further evidence the federal government will expedite oil pipelines through B.C. at the expense of safety. “They’re weakening something that’s already weak,” said Wilderness Committee spokesman Ben West. “It doesn’t fill me with hope and optimism that there’s going to be a serious look at what the real impacts of this project are going to be.” But even if pipeline and tanker shipments were completely safe, West says he and many in B.C.’s environmental movement would still oppose them to try to keep the vast oil reserves of the oil sands in the ground.

“I just think our coast should not be a major point for oil shipments,” West said. “Given the severity of climate change, it’s fundamentally irresponsible for us to be looking at ways to profit from something like this.” HUGE PROFITS

While environmental issues loom large in B.C., vast profits are at stake for oil patch companies in Alberta looking for an outlet that eases their dependence on U.S. buyers. Canadian producers earn $20 to $30 less for each barrel of oil right now than if they were able to sell freely from a west coast port. “Once you’re at tidewater, you’re in a global market and you remove that differential, that reduction you lose by being in the U.S. market,” said Travis Davies, spokesman for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. More than 1.7 million barrels a day of oil is now being pumped from the oil sands and that’s forecast to reach three million a day by 2020 and 3.7 million by 2025 – an increase equivalent to twice the combined extra capacity of the Northern Gateway and Trans Mountain proposals. “The capacity is such that both pipelines will be needed,” Davies said. He predicts the oil will move one way or another. Pipeline companies like Kinder Morgan argue they are by far the safest conduit. But railways have also begun exporting oil in tanker cars. Most of that traffic so far heads straight south to the U.S., but Davies said CP Rail has begun some limited shipments to the west coast for export. ANOTHER OUTLET

The pipeline-on-rail scenario isn’t the only possibility. Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline forks at Abbotsford, with a southern spur carrying oil to refineries in Washington State at Cherry Point and Anacortes. Continued: PIPELINE/ p5

Chilliwack: Wait and see WAIT from p3 Air quality from the expected increase in oil tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet is also major a concern. An FVRD staff report in 2009 predicted that marine vessels would become the “dominant” source of nitrous oxides in the Fraser Valley by 2015. Sulphur oxides, which help create acid rain, were also expected to increase “significantly” with increased shipping activity. An international effort to reduce marine emissions by creating Emission Control Areas (ECAs) started soon after publication of emission inventories in 2005, but an update from Transport Canada officials was not immediately available. Chilliwack MLA John Les said initiatives like requiring cruise ships to use electricity at dockside instead of running diesel engines is reducing emissions that impact the Fraser Valley’s unique airshed. “All kinds of initiatives like that are starting to take hold,” he said. Les agreed it makes sense to wait until the Kinder Morgan plan is tested under the environmental review process before making judgments. “I think it’s appropriate to keep an open mind that doesn’t preclude taking a position in favor or against,” he said. “I think we have to be totally balanced and not jump to conclusions that might prove false or embarrassing in the long term.”

The pipeline has operated in Chilliwack since 1953 without an incident, a track record that Les and Gaetz expect will continue. “I would expect that would continue with any twinning of the pipeline,” Les said. Gaetz said city concerns about the impact of the pipeline on Fraser River dikes and the city’s underground aquifer were “flagged” at the meeting with the Kinder Morgan president. She said the company is required to complete a detailed environmental impact report to the National Energy Board, “which will include an assessment of risks and alternatives such as potential re-routing of the new line.” “We will be monitoring the process to make sure that protection of the aquifer is included in the evaluation,” she said. The Kinder Morgan pipeline, officially named the Trans Mountain pipeline, crosses several streams in the Fraser Valley region, and touches 568 land parcels on its 146-kilometre route through the region, according to an FVRD report. Gaetz said the city collects $662,000 in taxes annually from Kinder Morgan which saves taxpayers from about a one per cent tax hike “and really helps our infrastructure.” The FVRD collected a total $348,687 in taxes from Kinder Morgan in 2011.

each year bring oil from Alaska to the Washington refineries. “Once we pipeline it down there we have no control over the way they run the ships,” industry observer John Hunter said. “I’d rather it be our jobs and with ships we control.” Kinder Morgan spokesperson Lexa Hobenshield said the firm has no intention of developing a second tanker export terminal on Puget Sound. But groups like the Georgia Strait Alliance say the mere possibility is

one more reason to stop the Trans Mountain twinning in its tracks. “We would just be pushing the risk down into the U.S. side, which does us no favours because the Salish Sea is interconnected,” said executive director Christianne Wilhelmson. “If we’re just shifting things it’s not a win for us. We need to stop the twinning of the pipeline because we need to stop the tar sands oil from coming here. It’s an energy source from the past.” – with files from Tom

said Alila’s findings were reviewed by the forests ministry. He did not disagree with the research – noting hydrologists have previously said runoff in beetle-infested areas is a concern – but added Alila focused on Baker Creek, a particularly flat watershed in the Quesnel area that may have amplified his results. Maloney said forest companies are responsible for weighing the risks of flooding from their operations and taking steps to mitigate it. “The chief forester came out and provided guidance to the licensees regarding hydrologic risk and where they should focus their harvesting in areas with high densities of pine.” More than 300,000 people live on the lower Fraser’s floodplain, according to the Fraser Basin Council, and a major flood would cause billions of dollars in damage along with possible loss of lives and injuries.

The Fraser River is at risk of much more frequent and devastating floods because of the rapid pace of logging in the B.C. Interior to salvage vast stands of beetle-killed timber, according to a UBC researcher. Younes Alila, an associate professor of forest hydrology, says the provincial government must take a hard look at the downstream threat from the high rate of logging. “The public needs to know how much they’re at risk so they are prepared,” he said. “People’s lives are at stake. Economic disruption is at stake.” Alila looked at small tributary drainages in the Interior and found much faster rates of runoff in areas that have been heavily logged in response to the mountain pine beetle epidemic. “The 100-year flood may come once in 20 years,” Alila said. “It could easily become five times as frequent.” He cannot say with certainty that his findings from smaller upcountry tributaries translate directly to more risk of the mainstem Fraser flooding in the Lower Mainland. But much of the runoff that ends up going through the lower Fraser Valley originates in snow melting in the upper Fraser, Nechako or Cariboo – areas of the watershed heavily hit by the beetle where logging crews have been authorized to cut at unsustain-

to the River Forecast Centre. Alila said more intense, heavy runoff in the Interior due to salvage logging will also result in more scouring of channels throughout the watershed, increasing the amount of silt and sediment ultimately deposited in the lower Fraser. More silt effectively raises the riverbed in the Lower Mainland and reduces the Fraser’s capacity before dikes are overtopped. Alila said the province has known about the threat since at least 2006, when a previous study for the Forest Practices Board first raised the potential for rapid runoff. He argues the province should reduce salvage logging or do it more selectively, and ensure logged areas are rapidly replanted to quickly provide shade. Dave Maloney, a forest water management officer for the province,

ably high levels so wood isn’t wasted. Alila said the upper 60 per cent of the Fraser basin is also particularly sensitive to rapid runoff from logging because much of the region has relatively flat, subdued topography. The snowpack melts faster in logged areas because there are fewer trees to shade and slow the melt, he said. Less water is absorbed by tree roots or evaporates due to snow being held aloft in branches. Snow in more mountainous areas tends to melt at different rates because of the differing elevations and aspects, but on flatter terrain the melt is more synchronized and flooding can be much worse. The Nechako and upper Fraser basins are also the ones where snowpack levels this spring are 50 per cent above normal, contributing to an elevated risk of flooding throughout the watershed, according

Chilliwack man convicted of tax fraud A Chilliwack man who ran a school for tax cheats was sentenced to four and a half years in prison last week by a B.C. Supreme Court Justice. Russell Anthony Porisky and his partner Elaine Gould were convicted on multiple tax-related charges last January for operating a school called Paradigm Education where hundreds of students were taught how to avoid paying personal income

tax. Porisky, 51, was sentenced to four and a half year in jail and fined $274,000 after he was found guilty of income tax evasion, failing to collect GST and counselling to commit fraud. Gould, 52, a mother of three, was convicted on one count of income evasion that earned her a six-month conditional sentence and a $27,000 fine. Porisky argued during the January hear-

ing that as a “natural person,” who laboured for “personal compensation” rather than profit, he was not a “taxpayer” as defined by law, and therefore not eligible for taxation. Selling this theory to Paradigm adherents, Porisky deposited $1.1 million into four bank accounts between 2003 and 2008, according to a court document, but did not file income tax returns during those years.

DELIC VICE. IOUS QUALI TY. SIZZLING SER

to the court document, Porisky continued selling his “natural person” theory, but used a disclaimer advising further consultation with a tax expert. Justice Elliott Myers dismissed that disclaimer and found Porisky guilty of counselling to commit fraud.

Porisky thus avoided $112,611 in taxes owed on $555,782 in taxable income and $66,133 in GST owed, according to the court ruling. Gould was declared a party to the evasion. Although three Paradigm students had earlier been convicted by courts, according

Cost of education

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

Free cradle-to-grave public education would be a great idea if we could afford it. Education is expensive and, in some cases, students should be expected to pay for it. No one would quibble about the benefits of free public K-to-12 education and post-secondary school should be subsidized to guarantee a well-educated and skilled work force. But there may be times when free tuition doesn’t accomplish the goals set out by the citizens who have to pay for it and, after experimenting with the Education Guarantee, the B.C. government has figured this out. After four years of providing free tuition to graduated adults seeking to upgrade their high school education, the province is now whittling down the number of courses it will offer at no charge. More specifically, the province has determined that it will only pay for literacy, math and competency courses for students learning English as a second language and English 12, Biology 12, Math 11 and 12, Chemistry 11 and Physics 11. The idea is that these are the courses that are most sought after by students seeking to upgrade their education. Students who wish to take history, law or accounting, which could be seen more as electives than core academics, will now have to pay for them. The province has also moved to withhold partial funding unless courses are completed, and while we don’t know all the details — and there could be some costly fine print for school districts unless attention is paid to this issue — the principle is sound. Taxpayers should only pay for courses that people sign up for and complete. Adding English 11, Communications 11 and 12, Physics 12, and Chemistry 12 to the list of free core courses is also a good idea because they, too, are needed for university or college. But until educators are prepared to work for free, students will have to contribute in some way to their own education. ~ Black Press

B.C.’s ferry fleet sails into another storm VICTORIA – The B.C. government has rolled out its plan to reform BC Ferries, continuing the structural and cultural shift that started when the Crown corporation was quasi-privatized in the early years of B.C. Liberal rule. Politically, there is a lot at stake here. Premier Christy Clark’s year-long “families first” routine boils down to two projects, reining in rate increases at BC Hydro and BC Ferries. For weeks, Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom has been signaling there is bad news to come. Sparring with the NDP in question period, he has bluntly and repeatedly said the days of fully staffed vessels sailing with a third (or less) of their capacity are coming to an end. Tabling legislation to give the ferry commissioner new powers over ser vice levels as well as

fares, Lekstrom revealed $80 million worth of sugar to help the tough medicine go down over the next four years. That’s on top of the $150 million annual subsidy. Quadra Island politician Jim Abram was first out with the predictable view of the Gulf Islands elite, dismissing this sum as paltry. It’s Tom difficult to capture FLETCHER how self-centred and insulting this is, but I’ll try. Consider that the B.C. transportation ministr y spent $460 million last year on highway operations. That’s for the province’s entire vast, weather-battered road network. This year’s operating subsidy to coastal ferries is approaching $200 million, nearly

half of that. And increasingly, it goes to subsidize getaways for those who choose isolation for its own sake. Basic financial information also exposes the falsity of NDP ferry critic Garry Coons’ one-note critique. It’s part of the highway system, he constantly says, comparing empty ferries with empty roads while ignoring the mandatory ferry staff and other costs. This fiscal-fantasy policy implies another huge increase in subsidy, much of it a transfer from working people to the idle rich who can afford Gulf Islands real estate. Coons can’t say how much, probably because he has no idea. A key legislative change will allow BC Ferries to use revenues from its profitable main routes to subsidize little-used runs. This would be even more important if those revenues hadn’t been

squandered. And no, I’m not talking about the “fast ferries.” The story is detailed in <I>Head On!</I>, a 2004 book by former B.C. deputy highways minister R.G. Harvey. He describes how the Mike Harcourt government completed the “gross error” of building a new terminal at Duke Point, near Nanaimo. This run was to take truck and other traffic from congested Horseshoe Bay to the mid-Island from Tsawwassen. An alternative route from Richmond to Gabriola Island, with bridges to Vancouver Island, had been quietly scuttled after the W.A.C. Bennett government was defeated by the NDP’s Dave Barrett in 1972. On a map, it’s clear this would have been the shortest route. Harvey says it would have cut travel time by half, and likely replaced the congested Horseshoe Bay dock. But Barrett would have had

to tell his Nanaimo ferry union supporters that they were losing half their work hours. Tsawwassen to Duke Point is 65 km, compared to 54 km from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay. A ferry worker’s shift includes two round trips and loading time. On the Duke Point run this meant at least eight and a half hours, “thus ensuring the crew at least one hour at double time daily and often more,” Harvey writes. “Later it became a scheduled overtime route.” Something to keep in mind as Adrian Dix and his crew of union bosses prepare to take the helm.

O’Mahony will have role with UFV Re: O’Mahony snubbed at ribbon cutting: Harrington (Progress letters, May 15). We are writing to apologize to those who felt we failed to properly include MLA Gwen O’Mahony in the recent event at our new building at the Canada Education Park. Ms. O’Mahony, an alumna of the university, was invited to the event and we were pleased that she could attend. In our remarks we acknowledged her presence and recent election, and both of us had the opportunity to speak with her personally and to offer our congratulations. The event was not open to the general public. Its purpose was to recognize those who had performed major roles in the vision, funding and building of our new campus, and the speakers were

chosen specifically because of their involvement in the project. Nevertheless, having now learnt that Ms. O’Mahony had just been formally sworn in as an MLA two days prior, we regret that we did not invite her to speak. As MLA for Chilliwack-Hope Ms. O’Mahony will have a significant role in the future development of UFV and we look forward to her full participation in our public celebration event planned for early September.

Traffic cameras a dangerous intrusion Re: “Cameras would slow down traffic, (Progress letters, May 15). Before suggesting the use of cameras to slow down traffic, maybe you should think about what you are asking for. You say they use them on the Motorways in England. Well, they also use them on every street corner; they are plastered every where in England. The average citizen can’t move to the right, or to the left without Big Brother spying

on them. In today’s world they will use any excuse to creep into our lives, to watch every move we make, with the excuse that we are being protected from terrorism. “Big Brother needs to look after us, when really Big Brother is the biggest terrorist out there.” We’ve got Smart Meters coming to every house, everywhere. It’s just another form of surveillance that will keep track of every

thing you do inside your home. It will show when you’re in, when you’re out, when you’re awake, when you’re asleep, when you’re cooking your dinner, doing your laundry, or watching TV. In the end all the radiation coming off of it will destroy your DNA. I for one don’t think we need more intrusion into our lives. I say no thank you to any suggestion of cameras anywhere. C. Punt Chilliwack

Veterans victors in class action suit Recently, the Federal Court Of Canada ruled favourably in the class action suit led by veteran Dennis Manuge v. Her Majesty the Queen in regards to Service Income Security Insurance Plan and the long term disability payment. Dennis Manuge along with 4,500 other disabled veterans have been waging this court

battle with the Harper Government over pension clawbacks since 2007. The government was wrong to litigate in the first instance, and now the court has ruled in favour of the veteran. It is sad that veterans are forced to go to Federal Court with a class action suit to receive support funding they clearly deserve.

This decision is a shameful comment that the Harper government is unwilling to fully compensate Canada’s Veteran. Government have a moral debt owed to our brave sons and daughters, who have sacrificed life, limb, and sanity for country. This gratitude for services rendered, must be paid

down in the same manner government deals with any other debt, and that is paying in full for what is owed. It is time for the Harper government to stop swindling our veterans and give them the due respect they so deserve. Joe Beauchene Chilliwack

Police urge caution for long weekend

POLICE from Front â&#x20AC;&#x153;A common problem last year was with fishermenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waders filling up with water, pulling (them) down with the force of the current,â&#x20AC;? Hollingsworth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see that happen again this year.â&#x20AC;? In 2010, a 63-year-old man from the United Kingdom, on a

camping holiday here with his wife, drowned while fishing in the Chilliwack River after his hip waders filled with water. Last year a 57-year-old man from Surrey nearly lost his life when his hip waders also filled with water as he fished in the Fraser River. Last summer, several ATV drivers were airlifted to hospitals down valley after accidents in the

Chilliwack area. Meanwhile, more than a dozen impaired drivers were nabbed in the Chilliwack area between the May long weekend and BC Day in July, 2010 and 278 liquor seizures made. There were 36 24-hour roadside suspensions that year, and 102 boat safety warnings, four of which led to charges.

Home&Garden

Get ready for tomato time let alone for the poor novice gardener who would be confused with a choice of six varieties! To add to the confusion, each year a whole bunch of new introductions come out. Certainly there are regional climactic differences that affect the type of plants which thrive in a specific area. Here in the southwest of BC, we must consider our climate and select varieties accordingly. Superb tomatoes can be grown in our home gardens if the plants have the following characteristics. First, they must ripen early. Tomatoes that develop in September often fall victim to blight. Tomatoes must also be resistant to the many diseases, like verticillium and fusarium wilt, that prevail in our wet soils. It is also a good idea to have staking varieties to make sure they are up off the ground where slugs abound. I personally feel that determinate tomatoes are better for our wet region. A determinate tomato is

It matures in 45 days from transplanting and produces an abundance of fruit on a compact plant. From the many new varieties of cherry types, it’s hard to make

Tomatoes are heat lovers, so now that the weather has warmed up and stays warm at night, you can plant out your tomatoes, writes Brian Minter Each new gardening season brings with it a myriad of new plants. These new guys are sometimes the result of cross breeding, hybridization or the discovery of new varieties from around our ever more accessible world markets. It is also interesting to see the reintroduction of older varieties, ones that had dropped out of use but are now suddenly making a comeback as heritage plants. Many new varieties gain popularity quickly, stay on the market for a number of years, then sputter out and are seldom heard from again. I often think we have just too many varieties on the market. Have you looked at the number of tomato varieties in seed catalogues lately? Stokes Seed catalogue lists over 81 varieties this year. Who in the world is going to plant 81 varieties of tomatoes? It must be a nightmare for seed companies attempting to guess how much of each variety will be needed every year,

Home&Garden Minter has plenty of options for your tomato crop MINTER from p17 a call, but you may want to try ‘Sugar Snack’ or ‘Sun Sugar’. If you are looking for lots of sweet cherry tomatoes, then look no further than ‘Sweet Million’ and ‘Sweet 100’. They are the most prolific of all tomatoes. They are also reputed to be the sweetest tomato, and their fruit contains very high concentrations of vitamin C. Now available are ‘Sweet Gold’ and ‘Sweet Orange’, both ready in 60 days. The new trailing tomato, ‘Tumbler’, has become the trademark of basket and container varieties. It is easy to grow and produces lots of 1¼ inch bright red, very sweet round fruit so early that even novices will have success. It is the best I’ve seen for ease of production even in ground beds, with nice growth habit and good flavour. You might want to give ‘Tumblin’ Tim Yellow’ a try and the new ‘Ramblers’ even come with stripes. The hot trend today is the

down to the really BIG tomatoes. If anybody is still planting ‘Beefsteak’, may I suggest that you pray for a hot summer or move to the Okanagan! The characteristics of ‘Beefsteak’ can be found in many other tomato varieties. ‘Oregon Spring’ is the first big ‘early guy’ in 75 to 80 days. It’s a large slicing variety that has a good, meaty Beefsteak-type flesh and should ripen by mid-July. The huge news in tomatoes is the blight resistant variety called ‘Legend’. It was developed at Oregon State University and on a scale of 1 to 10 for blight resistance (10 being the worst), it is a .53. It’s a very early determinate variety that produces fruit four to five inches across. This is the fifth year for this tomato in our region, and there’s been mixed reviews: some give it

‘grape tomato’ that has been available all winter from Mexico and California. On this type, each cluster ripens all at once like a grape. ‘Juliet’ has become the standard bearer. These indeterminate plants can provide up to 350 grape-like fruits, and they are quite tolerant to late blight. Try ‘Sugary Grape’ for a sweet tooth sensation. For mid-sized tomatoes, my top picks are ‘Early Girl’, ‘Ultra Girl’ and ‘First Lady’. All mature in 62 to 80 days, producing delicious seven to nine ounce (227 grams) fruit. Many gardeners claim these are the only varieties to grow. ‘Fantastic Hybrid’ is another favourite of many gardeners. Its fruit weighs six to seven ounces (185 grams) and is produced in great abundance in about 70 days. ‘Super Fantastic’ matures in about the same time, and its fruit is a little larger. A good early bird hybrid is ‘Defiant’ – it’s ready in 70 days with mid-sized globe shaped fruit and firm ‘Beefsteak’ texture. Well now, it’s time to get

high praise, while others a thumbs down. My sense is that it’s best to keep them away from your other tomatoes that get blight and could potentially spread it to ‘Legend’. Lycopene is the healthy antioxidant in tomatoes. A variety called ‘Healthkick’ has 50 percent more lycopene than any other variety. This determinant has a Roma plum shape with very sweet fruit weighing about four ounces. It is the healthiest tomato you can eat! Tomatoes are heat lovers, so now that the weather has warmed up and stays warm at night, you can plant out your tomatoes. As a general rule, from the May long weekend through June is usually the ideal planting time.

Glen Slingerland: Staying tuned into the community For as long as I’ve known Glen Slingerland, I’ve always called him Jake. You see, Glen and

his stage name. Thing is now, I have to really concentrate on the fact that he goes by this real name and yet, try as I may, I still call him Jake from time to time. Glen is the oldest of four boys who grew up in North Vancouver, a time that he recalls fondly. He was your typical kid and from the time that he was six, he was into sports. “I primarily played basketball, baseball and a lot of soccer,” he said.

I first met when we were both working for Fraser Valley Broadcasters and that happened to be

job for a young guy and I got a good tan and I was in good shape but it was sure hard work. I soon decided that I wanted to get into radio. It wasn’t like I had family members that were into radio or anything like that. I just knew that there wouldn’t be a lot of heavy lifting involved, I wouldn’t get dirty and I thought that it might be fun,” he laughed. After having resolved that his career would involve radio, he applied to the National Institute of Broadcasting for his

cians. Then, there’s me. Electricity scares me,” he chuckled. Glen really had no idea what he might do for a possible career and at the age Ana of 19, he began MACEDO working for the City of North Vancouver as a garbage collector. “I must admit that it was a really good paying

He ended up graduating from Delbrook Senior High but claims that he got through school by the skin of his teeth. “High school was something that I just got through because I was always dreaming of being somewhere else,” he smiled.

training. The school was on Howe Street in Vancouver and it was a private institution. After a few sessions, things began to unravel and the school closed. “I was determined to get into radio and sending out tapes was critical when you were trying to land a job. So, since I still had a key to the school, I’d sneak in there at around 11 p.m. and I’d make tapes to send out,” he said. This proved to be a good plan because not long after, he landed his first radio job with BVLD Radio in Smithers. “I was hired to do the evening shift and stayed there for just over a year. From there, I went to CKIQ in Kelowna. I was initially hired to do evenings but eventually became their afternoon and drive announcer,” he explained. After seven years, Glen left Kelowna and moved to Calgary where he was hired to launch AM 106, a contemporary hit radio station. Glen enjoyed his time in Calgary and was busy with his myriad of onair responsibilities as well as making public appearances at a variety of events to promote the radio station. Continued: ANA/ p50

Charley Pride plays Prospera Centre Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

“An Evening with Charley Pride’ is Saturday, May 26 at Prospera Centre.

International countr y star Charley Pride figures he actually sings even better now than throughout his chart-topping career of several decades. He’ll be performing May 26 at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack, on a cross-Canada tour. Pride has come a long way since singing and strumming in the back of a team bus while playing professional baseball. With his textured baritone, and self-taught guitar, he became a major hitmaker in the 70s, and the first and only African-American country superstar. When you ask him how old he is, the 74-year-old answers demurely what sounds like, “Plenty-nine,” and then he laughs. He came through throat surgery in the 1990s and assures everyone he’s still in top shape. He’s put out recordings and toured steadily, playing the White House

in 2009, and getting his star on the Walk of Fame. Pride has always had a particular fondness for Canada, and enjoys performing here. He’s hitting seven provinces on this concert tour. “I continue to tour because people keep coming to see me,” Pride tells The Progress in a phone interview from his Texas home. “People say I sing better now than I ever did. To me it’s not a job. It’s about delivering the lyrics, the music and emotions.” Pride was born to sharecroppers in Mississippi during the Great Depression, and bought his first guitar at 14. He feels fortunate to achieved phenomenal success in the music business. Between 1969, when he first hit No. 1 on the singles chart with “All I Have to Offer You (Is Me)” and 1984, when he took the top spot again with “Every Heart Should Have One”, Pride had more than 36 No. 1 country singles. It was around the time he

put out his third single that he decided he wanted to be known across the globe. “I told my then manager that I wanted to be known all over, not just America,” Pride says. He performed across Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Fiji. On RCA Records, Charley Pride is second in sales only to Elvis Presley. Dozens of Pride’s chart toppers now stand as modern classics. “Kiss An Angel Good Morning” went on to be a million-selling crossover single and helped Pride land Country Music Association Awards as Entertainer of the Year in 1971 and Top Male Vocalist in 1971 and 1972. Opening for Pride will be multiple CCMA winner Anita Perras. During her career Perras has released seven albums and had 26 charted singles. “One Smokey Rose”, “The Tip of My Fingers”, “Here Comes My Baby” and “Heads You Win, Tails I Lose” all made it into the Top 10. Continued: PRIDE/ p44

April Wine bringing out the classics Sunday April Wine is both iconic and eternal on the Canadian rock front. It’s been an unbelievable 42 years, with 11 Juno nominations, and 34 singles. It all began in Nova Scotia in 1969 with a name they picked because the two words sounded good together. Thousands of concerts later, April Wine is known the world over. The band plays The Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Sunday, May 27. Classic hits “Sign of The Gypsy Queen”, “Roller”, “Tonight Is A Wonderful Time To Fall In Love” and “Just Between You and Me”

led to the band’s induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame (2009), receiving The Lifetime Achievement Award (2009) and induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (2010). Fan favorites “Weeping Widow”, “Just Like That” and “Lady Run Lady Hide” followed by the hit “I Wouldn’t Want To Lose Your Love” pushed the band into platinum status. “The Whole World’s Goin’ Crazy” and “She’s No Angel” continued the hit parade. During the Chilliwack show, April Wine front man Myles Goodwyn has said he might also be playing a few tunes that were

inspirational to him growing up, and possibly some obscure April Wine songs that he wrote as well. “These are songs that fans have been asking to hear but are difficult to reproduce live or simply not conducive to the flow of the familiar songs that folks wanna hear year after year.” The Hawk 89.5 FM and Rock.It Boy Entertainment are presenting Myles Goodwyn and April Wine on Sunday, May 27 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould Street, Chilliwack (604-392-8000). Tickets $45(plus sc) available at Centre Box Office (604-391-SHOW (7469)) or Online www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

Welcome to your new

Chilliwack campus

at Canada Education Park

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honoured and delighted to be opening the second major building on our new campus at the Canada Education Park. This is the fulďŹ llment of the dreams of our predecessors and colleagues at UFV and our many supporters in the Chilliwack region. It marks the beginning of a new phase in our development, but one that remains true to our commitment to both quality education and community advancement.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dr. Mark Evered, UFV President See more, including photos, maps, and ďŹ&#x201A;oor plans, at ufv.ca/cep

The University of the Fraser Valley celebrated the latest phase in its development at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack last week by opening a new building. UFV owns 85 acres of land at the CEP, set adjacent to the Vedder River on the former Canadian Forces Base Chilliwack, which closed in 1997. On May 11, it officially opened the second building on its new campus at Canada Education Park (the fi rst was its Trades and Technology Centre, which opened in 2007). Extreme renovation has been the theme for UFVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development at the CEP so far. After transforming a former

military warehouse into a modern home for trades and technology programs in its fi rst phase, UFV turned its attention to the former military engineering school. Taking five separate buildings that surrounded an outdoor courtyard, architects designed a large new inside structure, demolishing a small part of the former building and integrating the renovated sections into one cohesive facility. The new building at Canada Education Park is a 150,000 square-foot facility that brings programs from separate buildings at the Chilliwack Yale Road campus into one welcoming and warm environment.

Extensive open spaces and use of wood make for a striking indoor environment. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also cutting edge in terms of sustainability, and earned LEED Gold certification, which means it meets the highest sustainability standards, and follows the Wood First initiative, showcasing BC wood in its design. The project was built at a cost of $41 million, with an additional $4 million going towards campus transportation and infrastructure development. The provincial government provided UFV with $7.5 million in funding for acquisition of the 84-acre Chilliwack Canadian Forces

Base site, $600,000 for the aboriginal gathering place, $10 million towards the major expansion and renovations of the new building at Canada Education Park campus, as well as $21.6 million to fund the major renovation of Building 1040, creating the new Trades and Technology Centre at the Chilliwack campus. A federal/provincial Knowledge Infrastructure Program grant provided $7.22 million for infrastructure improvements. The remainder has been funded by UFV through its capital plan, which includes the future sale of the UFV Chilliwack North campus on Yale Road contributing

to covering the cost of the development. The new campus (including the current Trades and Technology Centre) will immediately provide space for 1,600 full-time equivalent (FTE)spaces (400 at the TTC and 1,200 in the new building). The new building has the capacity to accommodate growth of 300 FTE to a total of 1,500, for a total of 1,900 FTE at the new campus. UFVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30-year plan for the campus involves a dozen more buildings in this area to form a quadrangle design, for a 7,000 FTE count. This would use roughly half of the 85 acres UFV owns.

Extreme makeover — UFV edition

“People from different programs and services that were segregated in separate buildings will run into each other more on this campus.” — Craig Toews, UFV campus planning executive director

The new building at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack that UFV opened this week isn’t exactly new, but it isn’t exactly old either. It is a bold reimagining of what was an engineering school (built for that purpose but never used for that purpose) that was mothballed when the Canadian Forces Base Chilliwack was closed in 1997. UFV inherited the building when it bought 85 acres of the former military base in 2006, and intended to renovate it as part of a larger project that would have seen a separate new building constructed as well. But then the UFV campus planners got extra creative. “We realized that we would get more value for the limited funds we have if we combined the renovation and the new construction into one cohesive building,” says Craig Toews,

director of campus planning at UFV. “By putting our eggs into one basket we were able to make it all like one beautiful new building.” It was a major overhaul to be sure. The engineering school was comprised of five buildings connected by an outside courtyard. UFV demolished part of the southern side of the complex and, using in-fi ll construction, knitted the four remaining pieces together under a magnificent atrium with architecture showcasing BC wood. When asked what he’s proud of in the new building, Toews picks two themes: how the vision for the campus is coming together in a building designed to foster community, and the sustainability aspects of the project. “We really wanted to build community between the

various departments and services and I think we will achieve that by having the central atrium with services such as food, coffee, bookstore, and admissions and records, student services, and the library right there, as well as beautiful and accessible outdoor spaces. People from different programs and services that were segregated in separate buildings will run into each other more on this campus.” In addition to the community spaces in the common areas, Toews sees great potential in the aboriginal gathering place, which brings a modern touch to a traditional communal long-house design, with a sunken floor surrounded by layered bench seating, and a warm setting featuring BC CONTINUED ON PAGE 30

What is Canada Education Park? Canada Education Park is a multi-agency educational partnership located on the former located on the former Canadian Forces Base Chilliwack, which closed in 1997. When the federal government closed base, planners and administrators from the University of the Fraser Valley and City of Chillwack, along with other partners, saw the potential for an educational focus for the property. The Canada Education Park evolved from that cooperative planning and lobbying. A partnership between several agencies including UFV, the RCMP, the Justice Institute of BC, and Canada Border Services, the park is now a reality that sees people from all the partners come to the location for educational purposes. UFV is the largest landowner on the Canada Education Park, at 85 acres. The campus is set in a beautiful natural setting adjacent to the Vedder River.

wood. UFV received an additional $600,000 grant to include the gathering place in the new building. (There is more to the UFV campus at Canada Education Park than the new building. UFV has several other buildings in operation on the new campus. The Trades and Technology Centre is located just to the northwest of the new building. Agriculture and Continuing Studies will be housed in a building just to the south. And another building will be used for printing services, maintenance and storage. UFV will also continue to use its performance theatre on the Yale Road campus for the near future. There is also plenty of room to grow for the future at Canada Education Park.) The campus is also part of a ready-made university district. The Garrison Crossing area is several years ahead of UFV in terms of residential and commercial development, and the people there have been eagerly awaiting the development of the campus. Restaurants, a recreation centre, housing to rent and buy, a yoga studio, and hip new retail outlets are all within walking distance. On the sustainability front, Toews emphasizes that this is a model campus. “We will be using 60% less energy in terms of cost than we were using on our Yale Road campus,” he notes. The building features an open-source geo-exchange system for heating and cooling of water, solar thermal systems on the roof for domestic hot-water production, light harvesting in the large public spaces (which will automatically dim the lights if it’s bright out) and storm waters systems to capture water for irrigation of the landscaping. Speaking of landscaping, most of the plants used are native to British Columbia and well suited to our climate. The geo-exchange involves drawing water from the aquifer fed by the Vedder River and then replacing it after it has done its heating and cooling work. Toews is also pleased with how the architects kept some sense of the old building and its military heritage in the linear design used throughout. “They’ve really made use of long linear geometry throughout, extending right through to the landscaping, for a real cohesive design.” The building features labs and classrooms for UFV’s Health Sciences programs including a 12-station dental operatory and ultra-modern nursing simulation labs with life-like mannequins, general classroom spaces, biology, chemistry, and geography labs, a black box theatre space, faculty offices, spaces for community partners such as Elder College, and the kinesiology department’s human performance centre. The project was designed by Stantec, which designed the building and coordinated all the consultant work. The main contractor was Stuart Olson Dominion Construction, which led the construction and coordinated all the sub-trades. Project Management was provided by MHPM, which managed all aspects of the project with a mandate to deliver the project on-time and on-budget.

The new building includes an aboriginal gathering place, modeled on a traditional pit-house with modern design features.

A new campus with a health and wellness focus

Health Sciences students are already working together in cooperative ways. Nursing and kinesiology student volunteers lead exercise classes at a residential care facility in Abbotsford. Below: Agriculture programs are also moving to the new campus

UFV is making a very exciting move into the new facilities at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack. Joining the already established Trades and Technology Centre at the new CEP campus will be most of the programs from the Chiliwack campus on Yale Road. The new campus will have a special focus on health and wellness. Last fall, UFV created a new Faculty of Health Sciences, bringing the kinesiology and physical education program under the same umbrella as programs in nursing, dental, and health care. In order to take advantage of the potential for interdepartmental partnerships and cooperation with the Faculty of Health Sciences, UFV is beginning transition of a significant portion of kinesiology and physical education programming and faculty to the new Chilliwack campus at CEP. UFV’s state-of-the-art Human Performance Centre research facility will also move to the Chilliwack campus at CEP. As the campus develops and other kinesiology labs are outfitted, UFV will begin to offer more kinesiology programming at the second-, third-, and fourth-year levels in Chilliwack, but will also continue to offer kinesiology classes in Abbotsford and online. “Our kinesiology faculty members are very much in support of being part of the Faculty of Health Sciences, and being in proximity to the other programs in the faculty will lend itself to collaboration and synergies. It will allow us to start conversations about

what we could be doing in the allied health care field,” notes Kinesiology program head Chris Bertram. Bertram is also excited about partnership possibilities with the RCMP, whose regional training centre is also on the CEP site, and about the opportunities the new campus and its location near the Chilliwack River Valley offers for campus recreation and outdoor education.

Agriculture The Agriculture program is slated to move to a separate renovated building on the new campus. UFV is currently fundraising for new glass greenhouse and barn, and is planning to move the “poly” greenhouse to the CEP campus.

Theatre UFV’s long-range plan is to maintain theatre courses and productions in Chilliwack, as well as expand the program to Abbotsford, if resources can be secured to do so. This will enable students in complementary programs such as English and Visual Arts to more easily take theatre courses.

The new building at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack houses a 100-seat studio theatre and faculty offices for the Theatre program. UFV’s current performance theatre is on its Yale Road campus.

Other courses and programs UFV also offers fi rst- and second-year courses in many programs at the Chilliwack campus, including two years of general arts and one of sciences, and offerings in social services, business, criminal justice, early childhood education, upgrading, to name a few. These courses will also make the move across town in the great trek, which will mean that a lively and busy new building on the CEP campus next fall.

Services Many services offered at the Chilliwack campus will also be making the move, including the library, student services, admissions and records, disability services, aboriginal access, student society, and student life.

Stantec brings new life to existing structures Renovation and renewal are the cornerstones of Phase II of the UFV Canada Education campus, helping to redefine the buildings and bring a new vision the university. Having previously been built as a military engineering school, the challenge was to repurpose, renovate, and expand this building to create an exciting and vibrant new campus for UFV; one that expressed the future and value implicit in the UFV vision. Joining the university on its journey over the past three years has been Stantec, an integrated architectural and engineering firm with offices across B.C. “Given that this was a renovation project, it was vital that we work closely with students, faculty, staff, and other users to define their vision of the new campus,” said Darren Burns, principal, who oversaw the project on behalf of Stantec. “Our team worked hard to ensure a smooth integration of the existing buildings while also capturing the exterior courtyard as an internal space. The buildings now have an atrium that links them together with a new life and purpose.” Stantec’s contribution to the project includes architecture, interior design, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, structural engineering (in conjunction with Equilibrium Consulting Inc.) and landscape architecture.

LEED® certification is an internationally recognized benchmark for green building design, construction and sustainability. Managed by the Canada Green Building Council, LEED® outlines new construction guidelines and measures results using a pointsystem in six areas — sustainable sites, materials and resources, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, energy and atmosphere and innovation. “We hear a lot about sustainability but I’m not sure people realize the impact,” Darren continued. “At Stantec we focus on creating buildings that not only have minimal environmental impact during construction, but that maintain this minimal impact over their lifespan.” Looking ahead, Stantec is excited about seeing the new Canada

be focused on the development of individuals who will be leaders in health care and in health promotion, so there is a strong connect there, and together those strengths can have a real impact. I’m excited about the Faculty of Health Sciences for what it is now and what it might become.” She sees health and wellness as being a critical priority in contemporary Canadian society. “Members of our faculty will play a key role in the educational response to future health care issues, and I welcome the opportunity to engage with them.”

Dr. Joanne MacLean will be joining the UFV as Dean of the new Faculty of Health Sciences on August 1. This is a new role heading up a new faculty, one created by bringing the Kinesiology and Physical Education department together with programs in nursing, dental, and health care assistant. Dr. Diane Reed has been serving as interim dean since the new faculty was created last summer. Currently an associate professor in the sport management department at Brock University, Dr. MacLean holds a PhD from Ohio State University. She has had a lengthy career in the worlds of academia and athletics. UFV’s two strategic goals (to provide the best undergraduate education in Canada, and to be a leader of social, cultural, economic, and environmentally-responsible development in the Fraser Valley) both resonated with MacLean and made her think that she and UFV would be a good fit. “The more I looked into the institution, the more I felt that it would be a great fit for me. UFV has boldly identified where it wants to go — to be the best in Canada in undergraduate education — and that resonated with me, because I have always identified strongly with undergraduate students, whether I was teaching, coaching, or being an administrator. So that made this opportunity very compelling for me,” she said. She sees a natural transition to the community-focused UFV. “I think that it is critical that a university have an impact on the communities we serve,” she said. “The folks ‘down the street’ are just as important as those across the country or around the world.” She is looking forward to coming in to lead a relatively new faculty (in its current configuration), while acknowledging that the departments and people which comprise it bring decades of experience and insight. “It’s a good combination, bringing kinesiology and physical education together with other health programs. There are many threads to bring the groups together in terms of health and wellness. So much of kinesiology is focused on health and well-being, not just of athletes but of the whole population,” she said. “We will

John English is settling in as the new Dean of Trades and Technology at UFV. English came to UFV from BCIT where he was Dean of the School of Construction and the Environment from 2001 to 2010. An engineer by profession, English earned his Bachelor of Applied Science from UBC in 1979, is a professional engineer (P.Eng.), and received his Master of Science, Environment and Management degree from Royal Roads University this spring. During his time at BCIT, he oversaw 58 trades, diploma, and degree programs and helped guide a major expansion of the school. He also helped to integrate trades programming with diploma and degree programs, establish BCIT’s first master’s degree, and launch BC’s first non-university accredited engineering program. He says that several things about the dean’s position at UFV appealed to him. “My background includes helping to get trades and technology programs more integrated with all the activities of a post-secondary institution, including academic education and research, so that experience can be applied here,” he notes. “Also, the Fraser Valley region is a real up-and-coming area. You don’t have to look far to feel the excitement and see the challenges that the growth coming to the region presents. UFV will have a big part to play in solving the challenges related to growth. It will be a neat time to be in this area and be involved. This area is now in the provincial spotlight and as the region’s economy looks to diversify, the communities will rely heavily on the university.”

There is always some chaos involved when finishing up a big building and renovation project and moving people in, but amidst the chaos last week were some very pleased UFV employees. They were in good spirits because, despite the fact that months of work remains to get all faculty, staff, and students moved in and settled, one of UFVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest and most complex projects ever is finally coming to fruition. The UFV campus planning team, led by executive director Craig Toews, has been working for years to plan, design, and coordinate this huge undertaking. Working from a master academic plan for the campus, Toews and project planning coordinator Shelley Young started by consulting with dozens of user groups to determine their space, material, and facilities needs as UFV planned to move the bulk of its Chilliwack campus across town to the new building. Project procurement and furniture consultant Hilary Cooper then worked with those same user groups and countless suppliers to procure thousands of items for the new campus, everything from furniture to audio visual materials to intricate lab equipment. Meanwhile, project manager Jorge Candia worked as a liaison with the contractor and the City of Chilliwack, seeking to ensure that all work complied with bylaws and building code and that UFV was achieving the best facility possible. There are a lot of utilities and services to coordinate

within a project this size. Candia has been planning and coordinating the civil layout of the campus to ensure the projects lineup with the master plan and future infrastructure. And long before the first moving truck pulled up, project assistant Colleen Heron was planning the logistics of a two-month staged move of more than 200 employees, and dozens of offices, labs, and classrooms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really like a big giant jigsaw puzzle,â&#x20AC;? says Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many details and pieces that have to fit together. And unlike some of our building projects on established campuses, we had to think about details such as parking, landscaping, warehousing, phone lines, IT connections, and many other details. And working with the departments was such a huge learning curve for us. The needs of areas such as chemistry, dental, nursing, agriculture, and the cafeteria are all so specialized.â&#x20AC;? Cooper thumps a giant document down on the table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We call this our bible,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It covers every single item in every single room at the former campus and details where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming from, and where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to, at which time.â&#x20AC;? She admits that you have to switch your mindset when doing institutional purchasing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like a home budget. You have to think in terms of spending in the millions of dollars without blinking.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge relief to see it finally happening,â&#x20AC;? adds Heron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working intensely on it since 2010.â&#x20AC;?

UFV and Chilliwack go way back Ever since the days of Fraser Valley College and a ‘college without walls’, the Chilliwack community has had a strong connection to UFV. Before the college even had any facilities to call its own, it ran its first classes in church basements in the daytime and Chilliwack Secondary in the evenings. For many years, people have referred to the oldest building on the UFV Chilliwack campus on Yale Road as “the motel”. It opened in 1976 as the first phase of the Chilliwack campus and was only supposed to be in

use by the college for five years. Not many people, however, know why it was called the motel. Many mistakenly believe that it was once a motel that was converted into a college campus, or that it was built as a motel and the college swooped in at the last minute and turned it into a college building. The truth is, the building was designed specifically for Fraser Valley College according to the directions of its first principal, Larry Blake. “When it became apparent that we couldn’t be a college

without walls forever and that we needed to have facilities to call our own, Larry Blake put out a call to contractors for a purpose-built facility, to be located on leased land in Chilliwack,” recalls Dick Bate, the college’s founding dean of instruction. “The idea was that it wouldn’t be for the long term, but for a few years until we secured land and funding for a proper campus.” Some local developers owned the prime piece of property at Yale and Airport Road, and offered to put up the building

and lease it to the college for a few years. The thought was that after the college was done with the property, it could be converted into a motel. Thus the nickname. “Larry Blake had been involved in college startups before, and he knew what we needed,” recalls Bate. “He worked with the architects to design a very basic building with a library, classrooms, cafeteria, and open meeting place. It was a very inexpensive building, not built for the long-term at all. Larry would be amazed that it was still in use after almost 36 years. It was meant to be temporary quarters.” A few years after the building opened in 1976, the provincial government decided to buy the land at Yale and Airport for a home for the Chilliwack campus. So the college went from being tenant to landlord of the Yale Road campus. More buildings followed: the agriculture building in 1987, and the health sciences centre in 1992. Eventually, funding was secured for more buildings. The classroom complex (Building D), performance

theatre, and student services building (Building E) opened in 1995. A new administrative/ library building to replace the “motel” was designed and was slated to immediately follow construction of the Building D classroom complex, but it was put on hold for funding reasons in the mid-1990s. It was resurrected in the early 2000s, and new plans were drawn that took into account the need to build high enough to be out of the flood plain, but the project died on the drawing board again in 2001 when the provincial government put a freeze on all new public postsecondary capital funding. UCFV then entered a phase of actively pursuing the former Canadian Forces Base Chilliwack for a new Chilliwack campus, working in partnership with the City of Chilliwack and CEPCO. This led to purchase by the provincial government of 85 acres at what is now called the Canada Education Park for UFV in 2007, and the opening of a new Trades and Technology Centre there in a renovated building that same year. Then came the extreme renovation of the former

Live and learn: The Canada Lands Company’s redevelopment of military base combines residential community with higher education Master-planned developments are often simply tracts of housing, unlike Canada Lands Company’s redevelopment of the former Canadian Forces Base Chilliwack, which was designed to be a “complete community”. The May 11 opening of the University of the Fraser Valley’s newest building at the Canada Education Park is just the latest stage in the adaptive re-use of the former military lands and infrastructure. When CLC acquired the former engineers’ training base in 2001, one of the conditions imposed by the federal Treasury Board was that it cooperate with the city and province to create an education centre, says Randy Fasan, senior director, real estate, for CLC. Two years later, the City of Chilliwack approved CLC’s plans to develop 153 acres of the land as the Garrison Crossing

mixed-use community and in 2005 with the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO), 200 acres as the Canada Education Park. Located south of Garrison Crossing across Keith Wilson Road, the Canada Education Park was planned to accommodate a variety of educational and training facilities including the RCMP Pacific Regional Training Centre, the Justice Institute of BC, the Canada Border Services Agency, and a new Chilliwack campus for the UFV. In 2007 UFV purchased the largest single section of the Canada Education Park from CEPCO and undertook the major renovation of an existing 115,000-square-foot building on the former military base, for re-use as a new Trades and Technology Centre which was relocated from the UFV’s Abbotsford campus and opened

elements describing the rich military history of the site for the faculty, staff and students of the education campus to enjoy. It is also home to the Cheam Leisure Centre, which boasts a large gymnasium, workout rooms, and new aquatic facilities as well as adjacent parkland with a

children’s spray park, picnic benches, and playgrounds. The former military complex that was CFB Chilliwack for 56 years has truly been rejuvenated into a place where people can live, work, learn, and play in a beautiful, walkable setting.

What does he like to be known for? “I’d like to be known as someone who tried to do the best he could, and in so doing helped other people and made a good living,” he says. “I appreciate the gifts I was given by the Almighty.” An Evening with Charley Pride, Saturday, May 26 at Prospera Centre, General Tickets are $65.50, Rows 1-5 are $74.50 (plus service fees and or charges) Tickets online at KBRTicketing.com, at the Prospera Centre Box Office or the Chilliwack Chiefs Office.

Eventually though, the opportunity came to return to the west coast and Glen decided to make the move. “I began working for Radio MAX in 1994 doing mornings and I was also the program director. My on-air name was changed and I became known as Jake Ryder,” he laughed. Fraser Valley Broadcasters eventually sold their Fraser Valley group of stations

five years after Glen was hired and for the first time in 23 years, Glen was out of a job. “Jake was officially retired and after that experience, I decided to leave the industry. I started my own company and was marketing jingles for a studio in Abbotsford. I gave that up and started selling furniture at the Brick. This was so out of character for me and I did it for as long as I could stand it, then I had to leave,” he reflected. Then, in 2002, Glen

took on a position with Chilliwack Employment Services and for the next six years he helped hundreds of residents secure new employment options as well as helping them access employment programs and educational opportunities. “This job had great purpose and is one that I truly enjoyed.” As much as he enjoyed the rewards of being a career counsellor, the opportunity to return to the radio industry presented

It’s still fun and I work for a great company,” he said. He also enjoys getting involved in the community and to that end is involved with the Chilliwack Arts Council as a board member, he’s a part of the Chilliwack Film Commission and is an active member of HOG (Harley Owner’s Group). Three years ago, call it a mid-life something or other, Glen decided to get his motorcycle license. “I just got to that point in my life and decided that I’d like to learn to ride a motorcycle, which I did. I bought a 2006 Harley Davidson Road

King and I just love it. My girlfriend rides too and we love getting on our bikes and just driving. It’s so freeing. This year, we’re looking at doing the Oregon Coast and this is something that I’m looking forward to.” Glen is also the proud father of his three children. “One of my daughters is a massage therapist, the other is a hair and makeup artist and my son is a stock promoter by day and a guitarist with the band Front Line Assembly by night. The music that they play is rather ‘industrial’ and the Germans apparently love it.” As the kids were growing up, Glen always had guitars lying around the house and he did play from time to time. “I could never get the sound out of it that my son does, though,” he laughed.

Chilliwack gymnasts cash in Chilliwack natives Zachary Clay and Heather Vanhouck turned in gold medal performances at last weekend’s Delta Invitational gymnastics meet. Clay and Vanhouck represented Abbotsford’s Twisters Gymnastics in the cash and carry competition. Judged differently from the usual com-

petitions, cash and carry gives athletes the opportunity to earn some spending money. The top three in individual events, and the top six all-around, cashed in. Clay earned his gold medal on the vault. Vanhouck scored hers on the floor. Leanne Hellewell nabbed sil-

ver on the bars and all-around, and bronze on the vault and floor. Ericka Van den Brink got silver on the vault. Marquita Morison placed seventh all-around in the cash and carry. In the national open division, she earned silver on the beam and bronze on the bars and all-around.

Turkey. Canada will be seeking one of the final five berths to the London Summer Games. Canada is currently ranked No. 11 in the world, while China is No. 7 and has already qualified for London.

In more than two decades, Harvey Smyl has never had a contract. One of the BCHL’s best all-time coaches has always operated on handshakes, doing what he’s done without ever scribbling his signature on a piece of paper. He’s never had the ironclad security that other coaches crave, and he’s never worried about it. Tuesday, therefore, marked a significant change for the head coach and general manager of the Chilliwack Chiefs as he finally signed a contact, inking an extension that will carry him through the 2013-14 season. “I’m excited, happy and honoured to be involved with what I consider to be the best junior A city in the country,” Smyl said. “I get to represent Chilliwack around the province and throughout the country, and there’s not a lot of guys with that type of job.” Chiefs president Glen Ringdal announced the extension at a morning news conference, talking about Smyl’s contributions to the club. “Contracts are important to coaches, because their jobs are considered tenuous,” Ringdal said. “It speaks to the kind of guy Harvey is that he was prepared to put that aside last year and not even worry about it because we

had so many important things to do.” Smyl did what he’s always done last season, taking a transplanted team from Quesnel, overhauling the roster and turning them into a playoff team — in a league in which only four teams from each conference made the post-season. “He did a masterful job building a team that exceeded all of our expectations,” Ringdal noted. “To be very honest, it wasn’t reasonable that we should have expected to be in the playoffs. But we didn’t say that to Harvey of course, and sure enough he came through as he always does.” Smyl was quick to point out that the 201112 Chiefs were far from a one-man show, and assistants Doug Ast, Brandon Fleenor, Paul Nicolls and Rob Bruni will all be back next season. Smyl was even quicker to point out that, despite a successful season, their job is far from done. “As a coaching staff, we were pleased, but by no means satisfied,” Smyl said about the team’s 33-22-2-3 regular season record and six game playoff battle versus Penticton. “We think it’s a great stepping stone that moves this franchise forward. The goal is to continue to advance our players scholastically and have this team playing in May.” Following Chilliwack’s first round exit at the hands of the eventual RBC champion Vees, Smyl found post-secondary hockey homes for five of his graduating players. A sixth, Kody Dhaliwal, is expected to finalize something soon. “He will be writing a chemistry exam this week, which I’m sure he will pass,” Smyl

said. “After that he’ll be advancing to the next step in his hockey and scholastic life. We think that is a very, very important part of our program, as important as winning. And we’ve been very successful in that area.” Heading into his 20th season with the Chilliwack/Langley franchise, Smyl’s teams have never missed the BCHL playoffs. Smyl has coached three BCHL championship teams (1994-95, 199900, and 2001-02). He’s taken two teams to the Royal Bank Cup, winning a bronze medal in 2000. Smyl has been BCHL coach of the year four times. ● At the same news conference, the Chiefs announced their intention to once again join with Hub International Bar ton Insurance Brokers in the Cash for Kids Fund. Last season the insurance agency pledged $10 for every goal scored by the hockey team. The Chiefs lit the lamp 194 times in the regular season, adding 10 more in the playoffs, generating $2,040 for the fund. That money was evenly split between the Chilliwack Minor Hockey Association and Chilliwack FC, with both organizations using the money to further their development programs. CMHA president David Soltys accepted the money on behalf of his group. Chilliwack FC president Andrea Laycock did the same for hers. At the same time, Hub/Barton executive Tim Brandsma confirmed a commitment of another two years for the Cash for Kids Fund.

Interview a few instructors from your area and choose someone you feel comfortable with, writes Jennifer Greggain One of the things I love about the game of golf is that it’s timeless. Anyone can play golf, from young children to seniors. If you are looking for a way to get active, meet new people, and spend more time outside, here is a guide to get you on your way to playing this amazing game. First, you will want to get some professional instruction. There are a number of facilities in Chilliwack that offer instruction for beginners. Depending on your schedule and budget, you can choose from group programs, or private lessons. Group lessons are an affordable way to get a good taste of the many different skills of golf. For those who prefer one to one instruction, private lessons are also a great way to start off right. It is crucial that beginners learn the proper basic fundamental skills of golf in order to avoid developing bad habits. Choosing the right instructor for you is not always an easy task. Be sure to look for a certified instructor at a location with good practice facilities. Interview a few instructors in your area, and be sure to choose someone who you feel comfortable with. It’s also important that you develop a good rapport with your instructor to ensure that you get the most out of your investment. In your lessons, be sure to learn about all aspects of the game of golf, including full swing, chipping, putting, pitching and sand play. Before you head out on the course for the first time, it’s also a good idea to get a ‘playing lesson’ from your instructor. Because golf is also a game of etiquette, it is equally important to understand what’s expected of you on the golf course. Next, find yourself some equipment that’s right for you. Often, when working with beginners, they come to their first lesson with 30 year old clubs from grandpa’s garage. If you do not use the correct type of clubs, you could create some compensations and bad habits in your golf swing, which is the last thing we want to happen. Finding the right set of clubs does not mean breaking the bank. There are plenty of entrylevel clubs for beginners and juniors that are quite affordable. Specifically, I advise ladies and juniors to look for graphite shafted clubs which are lighter, and therefore much easier to learn on. Once you have equipped yourself to play with instruction and equipment, you are ready to ‘hit the links.’ To meet more people learning the game, look for a golf course that offers leagues for beginners. Keep your eye out for ‘social’ nights and leagues, as these are designed for connecting people to other golfers, in a fun environment. Finally, if you are thinking about picking up the game of golf, don’t feel intimidated! Every golfer started somewhere, and every golf course welcomes beginners. Jennifer teaches golf to adults and juniors at the Chilliwack Golf Academy. She played professionally on tour for over 10 years, including two years on the LPGA and was also named the 2010 CN Canadian Women’s Tour Low Teaching Pro of the Year. She can be contacted at 604-798-9805, or at Jennifer@chilliwackgolf.com

LACEY Dorothy R. (Bobbi) It is with much sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Mother, Wife and LACEY Grandmother after a long illness. Bobbi passed away peacefully on May 9, 2012 at Cascade Hospice. She leaves behind her best friend and husband of 47 years Graham, son’s Dean (Anita), Ryan (Amber) and daughter Janna (Mark), as well as two grandchildren Dayton and Kayla. She is also survived by her brothers Robert (Monica) and Dale (Lenise) Karr and her Aunt Dorthy Ralston of Abbotsford as well as many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her parents Edward (Ted) and Roberta (Bertie) Karr and Sister Deborah Alcock. Bobbi was born in Matsqui, BC on April 13th, 1943. As a young girl she saw a parade in Chilliwack and was fascinated to see the Majorettes with their batons, but she especially loved their tasseled boots. She joined, and went on numerous parades until she grew out of the boots. In her mid-teens she belonged to the Air Cadets where she logged enough flight time to earn her pilot’s wings, an achievement she was very proud of. After high school Bobbi worked at the Dairy Lou Drive-in, as a car hop, where she met her future husband, who frequented the joint in his ’57 Chevy. At this same time she studied to become a hairdresser before working at the Dainty Lady Salon. Bobbi married shortly after and enjoyed a full married life with Graham. They were blessed with three wonderful children whom she was proud of all the rest of her life. Bobbi returned to the workforce at the Dairy Queen where she appreciated working with the many faces that passed through the doors. In later years Bobbi enjoyed travelling with friends and family where she exercised her adventurous spirit from swimming with dolphins in Mexico to exploring Ayers

Rock in Australia. She also became interested in learning computer skills which she pursued at ElderCollege. But one of Bobbi’s greatest joys in life was spending time with her grandchildren who enjoyed many giggles and hugs. Bobbi loved water colour painting, gardening, animals (her dogs), cross-stitching and baking, especially her famous homemade pies. The family would like to express thanks to the nurses and care aides at Chilliwack General Hospital and Cascade Hospice for their compassionate care during this difficult time. A celebration of Bobbi’s life will be held on May 26, 2012 at 2:00 at Henderson’s Funeral Home with a tea following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cascade Hospice are greatly appreciated. She was a kind, warm hearted, funny, creative, effervescent soul and although she is no longer with us in body, her spirit lives on in all the hearts she touched.

During his Military career he served in many places; CFB Penhold, CFS Dana, CFS Alsask, CFB Chatham, CFS St. Margret’s, CFB Baden, CFB Shearwater, CFS Sidney and finally CFB Chilliwack.
