Kinder Morgan president deftly fields pipeline questions

n B ee S weet

Robert Freeman The Progress

Kinder Morgan president Ian Anderson answered some hard questions at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon Thursday — not from Chilliwack business people but from pipeline opponents. PIPE UP Network members Mike Hale and Sheila Muxlow, guest speakers at last week’s Chamber luncheon, tried to draw Anderson out on the safety of pumping tar sands through the existing pipeline, and what the company would do if the proposed expansion is not supported by Chilliwack people. But Anderson refused to bite. “I can’t answer that,” Anderson said, about the question of popular support. “I don’t know what would happen,” he said, adding that it’s the National Energy Board the company must satisfy, in order to get the approvals to proceed with the project. Anderson also defended pumping tar sands — also called diluted bitumen — through the existing 53-year-old pipeline. “I’m not going to admit (diluted bitumen) is any different than any other product in our pipeline,” he said, despite the urging from Muxlow. Anderson invited her to send him the science that shows it is more corrosive than conventional oil. Continued: Pipeline/ p6

No timeline yet on Paramount demolition Engineers to check if sign can be saved Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

There’s no timeline in place yet for the demolition of the old Paramount Theatre building in downtown Chilliwack. In the aftermath of the impassioned campaign to save the building by the Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount last week, messages are still trickling into city hall about it. “It’s been quite surprising,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “I have heard from those who were disappointed by

PH: 604-393-7242

the decision, but I’m also getting significantly more emails from people saying that if we’re going to revitalize the downtown once and for all, we should go for it.” Members of the Paramount group are still steaming. “The consensus is that we feel an injustice has been done and we are all angry,” group member Kim Mallory told The Progress. They want folks to know that The Discovery Channel network had the restoration project at the top of its list

for helping to renovate the Paramount lobby for a reality TV show about bringing historical buildings back to life. “They (council) didn’t give us a chance to respond. They just dropped a bomb and walked away,” she said. “No community consult, nothing. It’s a travesty.” Many of those who contacted city hall about the Paramount decision wanted to know if the historic sign could be saved at least. “I have asked staff to make sure we have an engineer look at the sign to determine if it can be salvaged,” Gaetz said.

“People love that sign. It’s a familiar downtown landmark for all of us.” The building was described on the Heritage Canada Foundation website as having its design roots in the international style. The sign has art deco influences and a fluted façade. But like the building, the sign has deteriorated. “There used to be lights all around it. We’re hoping it doesn’t disintegrate completely if they try to take it down,” said Gaetz. Continued: Theatre/ p5

Passenger in fatal hang-gliding flight was not hooked in Robert Freeman The Progress

A young woman who fell to her death during her first tandem hang-gliding flight was not hooked into the glider before take-off, according to an investigation by the Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association of Canada. Lenami Godinez-Avila, 27, fell 1,000 feet to her death on April 28 shortly after take-off from the launch site at Mt. Woodside near Agassiz. Pilot William (Jon) Orders landed safely, but was charged with obstruction of justice when police learned he swallowed a video chip from a camera onboard the glider

that recorded the tragic flight. Orders is scheduled to return to court for trial on April 15 next year. Margit Nance, HPAC executive director, told The Progress that the investigator’s report deals only with the pre-flight actions of Orders, and has nothing to do with the post-flight period that is the subject of the obstruction charge. She said the association will soon release recommendations on “what additional things (pilots) can do to strengthen our pre-flight checks.” She said new safeguards are already in place, but added that hang-gliding pilots usually follow a checklist and double-check each other before a flight.

“We rely on each other as additional safeguards,” she explained. One of the findings of HPAC accident investigator Martin Henry was that a second pilot was on the scene, which may have created “distractions” that led to the failure to hook Godinez-Avila into the glider. “The investigation assumes that pilot distraction resulted in a failure to perform recommended standardized safety procedures,” Henry reported. However, he added, the “unusual aspect” of a second pilot on the scene “makes if difficult to understand how the multiple phases of the pre-flight (were) missed by both pilots, and how the hang-

check was not performed.” According to witnesses at the time, Godinez-Avila clung desperately to Orders’ legs after she slipped out of the harness on takeoff, but finally could hang on no longer and fell to her death. According to the HPAC report, Shaun Wallace, a certified pilot from Australia, had been hired by Orders to take Godinez-Avila’s boyfriend on a tandem flight following Orders’ take-off. Wallace took part in several preflight actions involving GodinezAvila, Henry wrote in the report, including bringing her to Orders’ hang-glider, activating the video camera, and “remaining directly behind the glider during the

season. “We converted a hay field on the farm into a thriving vegetable paradise, complete with two greenhouses and farm animals.” Aaron’s grandfather, Norm Standeven, 90, was born on the farm. He farmed it for 30 years as a dairy operation. “I think it’s great that they’re doing this,” he says about their garden. “One thing about it, you know what you’re getting.” Downtown Chilliwack resident Paul Yua drives out to the farm every Saturday morning to pick up one of their harvest boxes. “I’m inclined to choose organic,” he says. Ossome Acres farm is not certified organic, but they do use natural growing methods, Noella points out.

“The things they grow are so beautiful and the taste is so special — and I think it’s healthier,” adds Yua. Each box is $20 per week, picked up at the farm, and featuring an ever-changing variety of fresh produce in season. “It’s important to know something about the farmers who grow your food,” says customer Sherri Sladek. “They took the time to show my daughter around the farm, saying ‘This is what we’re growing,’ which was great.” Her family enjoys juicing the fresh Ossome veggies, and making smoothies to retain the valuable nutrients in their raw state. Sladek says she also appreciates the fact that the Osses seek out unique varieties of vegetables, which they grow

with organic methods and without spray. “You just can’t find this everywhere, with a fifth generation farm family at work. “This is priceless and they’re doing their darnedest to make a go of it.” Bruce Tiessen of Chilliwack said his family has really savoured the CSA experience so far. “We like to support local growers. We didn’t know what to expect with this, but we’ve really enjoyed every box so far. It’s the variety, the flavours and the experience.” The Ossome Acres season runs until October 20, with the possibility of an extension. “We do still have a few spaces available at a pro-rated cost,” Oss says.

Ending the “addiction to oil” and switching to renewable “green” energy sources is the longterm goal of opposition to the Kinder Morgan pipeline. Most of a town hall meeting organized by pipeline opponents in Chilliwack last week focused on warnings about the perceived risks to the local economy and the health of area residents, if the Trans Mountain pipeline owned by Kinder Morgan should rupture and spill diluted bitumen (tar sands) into the environment. But after the meeting, PIPE UP Network organizer Mike Hale was clearly elated by the talk by audience members and a panel of guest speakers about ending the “addiction” to oil and funding “green” energy sources. “That’s the revolutionary movement,” Hale said, adding that he believes there has been a “sea-change” in public willingness to switch to alternate energy sources like wind and solar power. Reuben George, a panelist at the meeting from the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, called for an end to government subsidies for fossil fuels and re-directing them to renewable sources. Ian Stephen, another panel member, said Canadians need to “pipe up” and make the federal government listen to the public demand for clean energy to end the economy based on fossil fuels. Panelist Ben West, a director at the Western Canada Wilderness Committee, said a local solution to “getting off the oil” is the Inter-Urban Rail line, which has long been proposed as a rapid transit route. He said rapid transit would reduce Hwy 1 traffic, protecting air quality, and reducing urban sprawl, which would protect Fraser Valley farmlands. Kinder Morgan opponents say building the pipeline to pump fossil fuels to export markets holds few benefits for B.C. while the risks of Continued: Oil/ p6

It’s the peak of the growing season in Chilliwack farm country. The vehicles are pulling up every five minutes to pick up ‘harvest boxes’ at the sprawling family farm on Camp River Road. Noella and Aaron Oss of Ossome Acres have launched a CSA Harvest Box program this summer. They say it’s the first of its kind on the north side of Chilliwack. The heirloom tomatoes are ready to go after being cultivated in a greenhouse made from repurposed windows. The dark wine-coloured tomatoes are tucked in with pale yellow carrots, squash, cucumbers, romaine lettuce, peppers, purple snap beans, and something called ‘pea radishes’ in a recent Oss box. That dazzling array of colourful fresh produce was only available last year at the local farmers’ markets from these growers. Now they’re building a CSA box program to provide friends and customers with the freshest, and most naturally grown produce possible. “It shows that budding farmers still do exist and right in our own backyard of Chilliwack,” says Noella Oss, explaining a little about the CSA program, which stands for Community Supported Agriculture. They’re actively working an acre of land, for the second season in a row, and carrying on the agricultural tradition as the fifth generation farmers. Customers sign up in advance, which helps them with the advance costs of getting a head-start on the

launch process.” However, Henry added that as command pilot, Orders was “solely responsible for the safety of his passenger.” Henry wrote that his investigation was “unable to determine the reason for the omission of the critical pre-launch safety checks,” but he concluded that “the dynamics of multiple passengers and instructors may be the key to understanding why the critical pre-launch procedures were not performed.” Just a few weeks prior to the fatal flight, Orders, 50, had taken a re-certification course that included the pre-launch readiness procedure.

Theatre to be assessed this week “If it’s not salvageable, then maybe there is some part of it that can be reclaimed.” Gaetz said about the sign. “So when the new development goes in it could be stipulated that the sign, or pieces of it, will be incorporated into the new building that still bears the Paramount name. “It’s something I would like to see preserved.” There’s a fondness for the old Paramount in the hearts of locals. “It’s nostalgia, and it’s beautiful.” The Paramount building made the Top Ten Endangered Places list for 2012 with the Heritage Canada Foundation. A specialized team is set to check the building either Friday or sometime later to ensure it’s free of haz-

ardous materials like asbestos before it is demolished. The demolition has not been scheduled yet. “I imagine it will be soon. We’ve been at it, discussing the Paramount, I mean, since October 2010,” said Gaetz. “As sad as it is, a date will have to be chosen. There’s no point in having a boarded up building. With these kinds of decisions, you want to make the right and wise decision. We weighed what everyone had to say first.”

The mayor emphasized the decision fits in perfectly with the long-term vision of the Downtown Land Use Implementation Plan, “I want people to know there is a vision and a plan in place.” Having those empty storefronts downtown, described as missing teeth by some is a “necessary” part of revitalization, said Gaetz. “Every community goes through that and Chilliwack is no exception. But we don’t own them all, the land has to be assembled by pri-

vate owners. It’s going to be beautiful when it’s finished, with greening, and trees and public space, all the lovely things that make it a neighbourhood.” Some questioned whether the building was actually close to being condemned, as the mayor had stated in chambers on the day of the demolition decision. “I was talking about the additional damage that was done, aside from a leaking roof. Vandals stripped the copper wire, and the ventilation system was

compromised. We’re not in a position to keep it up and running.” Every week there are people, sometimes photographers, who want a last look inside the old theatre. “We’ve had to deny those requests because of the state of the building.” Since the city took possession about 20 months ago, it has cost the taxpayers, $52,000 in operating costs, according to a staff estimate.

Economic pipeline benefits touted for B.C. Pipeline from Front www. CHILLIWACK chilliwackford .com 30309

Anderson also disagreed with opposition “claims” that tar sands will sink in water, mak-

ing it harder to clean up, saying “it floated” during the Burnaby pipeline rupture in 2007. He said he could not

answer the charge that exporting Alberta tar sands will drive up the Canadian dollar, hurting the national economy in the process.

“There are many factors that affect the value of the dollar,” he said. “I don’t know that a strong dollar ... is a bad

thing,” he added. “I think it’s something we should be proud of,” he said. “It’s something that gets us working on the pro-

ductivity aspect of our society” which also impacts the value of the Canadian dollar. Anderson said no detailed study of the economic impact of the pipeline expansion on Chilliwack has been done, but about 60 per cent of the estimated $4.1-billion cost of the project will be spent in B.C. He said economic benefits of the project, and its route and environmental impact, will be released at future public meetings “tailored” to each community along the pipeline route. If approved, after a two-year review by the NEB, construction of the pipeline could start in 2016 with a completion date after the summer of 2017. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Time to get off the oil, meeting hears Oil from page 3 spills increase with the proposed expansion. West noted at the meeting that the NDP has proposed an environmental assessment of pipeline proposals in B.C., including Kinder Morgan, if the New Democrats forms government in the May 14 provincial election.

The proposal includes the Kinder Morgan pipeline, an NDP spokesperson said.

Pointsof View

The Chilliwack Progress is published by Black Press Group Ltd., every Tuesday and Thursday at 45860 Spadina Ave., Chilliwack. The Progress is a member of the Canadian Circulation’s Audit Board, Canadian Community Newspaper Association, British Columbia and Yukon Community Newspaper Association and B.C. Press Council.

Move to protect heritage In the end, Chilliwack city council was given a straightforward choice: Accept CEPCO’s free offer to demolish the Paramount Theatre, or use taxpayer money to pay for its reclamation in the hope that some future use might be found. This council – true to its mantra to spend only what money it has – accepted CEPCO’s offer. To any who have followed the long journey of Chilliwack’s plan to revitalize its downtown, the move should not come as a big surprise. Despite talk of a “Paramount district” in the city’s “Downtown land use and development plan,” the city made clear the Landing area would be the downtown’s entertainment district. It might entertain a private proposal for the Paramount, but it certainly wasn’t going to pay for it, especially after the $23 million taxpayers spent on the Cultural Centre. When council agreed to provide more time to a group hoping the save the building, it repeated its promise to spend no money on repairs to the building. It kept that promise. Reaction fell along the traditional fault lines: The decision was either a prudent use of taxpayer dollars, or a heartless rejection of Chilliwack’s historic past.

The reality is more complex. The preservation of our historic buildings must begin long before they are shuttered. Unfortunately, that rarely occurs. Instead, they are allowed to deteriorate to a point where they are beyond repair. The Empress Hotel, once a jewel in the city’s downtown, is now a vacant lot. The Paramount Theatre, left with no heat and a crumbling roof when it was ‘gifted’ to the city, faces the same future. Not every building in the downtown has suffered that fate. Renovations to the Royal Cafe and the Wellington – housed in the former Royal Bank building – show what is possible. The city has at its disposal the tools to make this more common. Indeed, the downtown development plan – approved by this council – identifies heritage conservation as one of its objectives and lists policies that would make it happen. But it will take more than words on a page. If there is a political desire to preserve Chilliwack’s heritage, this council must move swiftly to implement the policies it has already approved. It can begin with: “Update the existing inventory of recognized heritage buildings…” Unfortunately, there soon will be one less building to add to that list.

Tough road still ahead for proposed refinery

You’ve got to give publishing mogul David Black high points for floating the idea of an oil refinery in Kitimat. Boy, did that come out of nowhere! But he’s got his work cut out for him, not that a business challenge has ever held him back in the past. Founder of Black Press, he built an empire that now publishes 150 newspapers (including the Chilliwack Progress) in Canada and the U.S. Good on him, though, to put forward a business idea to address at least some of the contentious issues surrounding Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline. There are many major groups (environmental, First Nations, etc) stacked up against this project, including the NDP expected to win next year’s provincial election, but at the very least Black’s proposal deserves serious consideration. What Black is proposing, and

what he has been working on for the past 11 months, is the construction of a $13 billion refinery to be located on the 3,000 hectare Dubose site, crown land zoned industrial use 25 kilometres north of Kitimat. It will process up to 550,000 barrels per day of dilbit (oilsands bitumen mixed with conMargaret densate diluents). EVANS The condensate will be separated and returned to Alberta while the bitumen will be processed into diesel (240,000 barrels/day), gasoline (100,000 barrels/day) and kerosene, or aviation fuel (50,000 barrels/day). Black, who describes himself as a ‘quiet environmentalist’, sites four benefits for building

the refinery. It will address the fear of a heavy crude oil spill into coastal waters since, he claims, transportation of refined fuels is safer. The six-year construction project, tentatively planned for 2014, will provide roughly 6,000 construction job. Once on line, the refinery will provide at least 3,000 permanent jobs plus additional employment from the satellite industries that will spring up. That economic activity flowing through the town will yield significant tax revenues, something not to be sneezed at by local councillors. Mayor Joanne Monaghan is cautiously optimistic. “We have kept an open mind,” she said. “If this proposal is environmentally friendly, goes through the environmental impact studies and comes out OK, we will be happy. The refinery will benefit Kitimat and Terrace

as well as the whole northwest. If we don’t ship bitumen down the channel it will relieve one of the problems. But there is still the pipeline.” She’s right there. As much as the refiner y addresses the marine shipment of a reputedly less threatening product, it can’t address the contentious issue of a pipeline spill anywhere along the backcountry route from Alberta. Black’s challenges are offshore in more ways than one. A refinery will create value added products but China wants the raw bitumen, arguing they can refine it a lot cheaper because Chinese labour rates are a lot less than Canadian labour rates. And they have been scrambling to build refineries of their own. According to some industr y projections, China will have 30 new refineries by 2020, when the Kitimat refinery is projected to

start. The combined capacity of the Chinese facilities will total 5.7 million barrels per day, nearly one third of the capacity of U.S. refineries. Black is proposing this mega project at a time when refineries are shutting down in North America or being sold. This is a tight-margin business. Royal Dutch Shell closed its 76-yearold Montreal refinery in 2010. Imperial Oil put its Dartmouth, Nova Scotia refinery up for sale this spring because of global competition and lack of demand. Dozens of heavy oil refineries are sitting idle in the U.S. gulf coast. Black, through his company Kitimat Clean Ltd., will be submitting an environmental assessment application. If approved, he’ll be looking for private investors with deep pockets. And he’ll need customers. Lots.

Dinner and a movie at Paramount? I know this is probably too little, too late, but I have been reading about the proposed demolition of the Paramount Theatre and those that want to save it, but could not come up with a viable business plan to make it profitable. I don’t know if anyone had proposed this idea already, but what about a dinner-and-a-movie theatre? I was recently visiting family in Fort Wayne, Indiana and they

have an old theatre there very similar to the Paramount. When it looked like it too would be fated to the wrecking ball with the advent of the Cineplex, someone had the brilliant idea to install a kitchen, remove the seats and install bistro tables & bar seating. You can go there, see a first-run movie, and have a tasty meal, and watch your movie in comfort. The wait times were modest, but the theatre was

full to capacity with couples and families. I really enjoyed the unique experience, and would love to experience it again here, but I have neither the finances nor the business acumen to make it happen with the Paramount. Perhaps someone else out there likes this idea and has the wherewithal to make it happen? N. Price

Heritage properties can be profitable There’s a six lane highway down by the creek, Where I went skinny dippin’ as a child And a drive-in show where the meadow used to grow And the strawberries used to grow wild.

~ Joe South, “Don’t it Make You Want to Go Home”

What is cultural heritage and why should anyone care? It’s a term that gets bounced around a lot these days and which sometimes seems vague and meaningless, but in the current economic context, its importance extends well beyond nostalgia or snob value. In what is known as our current “dematerializing” economy, where we trade in “non-tangibles” like enter tainment, intellectual property and good will, heritage culture is becoming an important industry. So while the desire to preserve things like the old Paramount Theatre in downtown Chilliwack might seem like something that appeals to only a few sentimental screwballs, the property can actually generate significant revenues, as well as a number of trickle-down benefits. So while heritage is profitable, it is also connected to less tangibly lucrative things like identity and commu-

nity – heritage is about how people recognize and remember themselves and their culture. As the world is increasingly “Disneyfied”, and as what sociologists call “McDonaldization” colours more and more of our life experience, old landmarks like the Paramount give us a sense of our past and of our history, that threatens to disappear under the surface culture of the suburb and the chain franchise. In a world filled with “non-places”, like airport malls that are the same everywhere from Hong Kong to Barcelona, areas such as the Paramount district in the old downtown Chilliwack core take on greater significance to society at large. This is a centre of nostalgia and memory, yes, but also of community and belonging. It doesn’t look like every other Imax Cineplex, and that is precisely the Paramount Theatre’s tremendous value – it’s one of a kind of building of which there few left. I would like to suggest that the old Paramount is worth saving for at least two reasons in spite of the Chilliwack city council’s decision on August 21, to disregard the city staff report for the restoration of the Paramount, and instead to destroy this highly valuable prop-

erty. All over the world major cities like Bristol, New York, Brussels, or Paris, as well as smaller cities like Sussex and Moncton, New Brunswick are cherishing and restoring their old landmarks. Indeed even Vancouver has Gastown and, along with cities like Atlanta, Georgia, Vancouver has begun developing numerous fake heritage properties. The reason is this: heritage properties give us a sense of our deep cultural roots, our shared history and impart a sense of continuity and depth in a market-driven world punctuated by random events. But the added bonus is that people like to spend money in spaces and architectural settings that feel like and look like the Paramount. This is why heritage is marketed in so very many forms from cinema, to themed parks, to packaging and cosmetics, to remakes of old cars, and lines of heritage clothing like those spawned by Mad Men. Heritage properties are profitable, whether repurposed or maintained in their original state, so it seems wrong-headed indeed to spend the estimated cost of 400 thousand dollars to demolish the building, when restoration is the more expedient and least

expensive option. As Joe South lamented in the lines of “Don’t it Make You Want to Go Home” that I quoted above, nature has been paved over in the service of cars, urban sprawl and faceless corporate investment. Unlike the drive-in in the song, the Paramount was a theatre that one walked to, and in which one had social contact with schoolmates, friends and neighbours, rather than keeping to the isolated (if undeniably romantic) space of the car. So saving the Paramount is also about preserving the Chilliwack city core as a place for people to linger, congregate and be entertained, by hanging on to the focal point of the Paramount district – a place of community and of profit – a point of difference and distinction. The Paramount is a place of singular experiences in a world of sameness and chain-restaurant aesthetics and an important property to restore, honour and make work for future generations, to afford them the sense of community and of Chilliwack’s history that is their cultural heritage.

Showcasing the talents of all abilities A new Chilliwack program shines the spotlight on the theatrical talents of children and young adults with disabilities Katie Bartel The Progress

Carla McLean-Bayes saw her uncle in a light that few others did. He was talented, motivated, and had a drumming skill second to none. He was also severely disabled from the polio he contracted at four years old. And yet, he refused to let his disabilities define him. “It was amazing the things he did,” said McLean-Bayes. He wanted to be a drummer, so he had a kit adjusted to his needs. He wanted to be in a band, so he practiced hard to show his value. He wanted to be acclaimed, so he played even harder than he practiced. “He was an inspiration,” said McLean-Bayes. “He was the one who taught me that when you have limitations, you work with them.” McLean-Bayes, a registered psychiatric nurse and certified dance instructor, has been instilling that mantra into the hearts of several Chilliwack kids this summer through her Show Kids program. Show Kids is a performance arts program for children and youth with physical and intellectual disabilities to show off their wide range of talents. “These children have a lot to offer the performance world,” said McLean-Bayes. “They just need a place to express their talents and abilities.” Since July, McLean-Bayes has been holding once-aweek classes, at Cultus Lake elementar y, empowering kids with autism, Asperger’s, Down’s syndrome, speech impediments, physical disabilities, and more. She’s championed their natural abilities to perform, taught them dance routines, acting

and singing skills, and introduced them to the behindthe-scenes theatrical world of makeup artistry, costume design, props, lighting and set-up. These individuals have so much to offer and show us. They are very intelligent and have a lot to express, it’s just they’re wired differently,” said McLean-Bayes, who hopes to build awareness in the theatrical community around the “unique” talents of these young individuals.

“The way I look at it, they just need adjustments to help tap into their talents.” For Susan Dyck, Show Kids is long overdue. Dyck’s 19-year-old son Brian has autism, Down’s syndrome and speech apraxia. But programs for young adults in the community are limited, she said. “Brian loves to perform, he loves drama, and the arts, and this is just another way for him to communicate,” said Dyck.

And the kids, she said, are always beaming after class. Fifteen-year-old Liam Jones, who has Down’s syndrome, is one of those sporting an ear-to-ear grin. From the moment he wakes up on Wednesday mornings to the moment he enters the school, his excitement is near bursting. “He can’t wait to go,” said Liam’s mom Kelly. “He loves the music, loves dancing, loves being around other kids.”

And not only is it socially rewarding, it’s also physically challenging, which is a major benefit for youth with disabilities, like Down’s syndrome, who have a greater tendency of becoming overweight. “This program is giving them confidence, self esteem, and it’s keeping them active,” said Kelly. “They’re sweating like crazy in there. “It’s about time we had something like this in our

community.” The young performers will be showcasing their talents for all to see in their summer’s end No Limits production on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. at Cultus Lake elementary.

Chilliwack cadet earns engineer ticket over summer While some youth spent the summer sleeping in, playing video games, or lounging at the lake, Chilliwack teen Katherine Mcwilliams was working hard for the navy. For eight weeks, the 15-year-old cadet worked on heavy machinery aboard the Royal Canadian Navy’s Patrol Class Tender (PCT) vessels as part of the Sea Cadet Marine Engineer Course at Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Quadra’s Cadet Summer Training Centre in Comox, B.C.. The course consisted of seven weeks of

challenging theoretical and practical learning, mechanical sketching, shipboard firefighting and damage control, engineering maintenance skills and emergency procedures. The final week was spent preparing for, and appearing in front of a board of the Canadian Naval Marine Engineers to test their knowledge. “Sea Cadets has taught me the value of loyalty, professionalism and has helped me make friends from across Canada,” said Mcwilliams, now a stoker. “I’ve been pro-

vided with amazing opportunities that I wouldn’t get anywhere else.” Mcwilliams was recently presented her marine engineering ticket from Captain Don Smith, CD, the Commanding Officer of Maritime Forces Pacific’s Fleet Maintenance Facility Cape Breton. With this ticket, the young cadet is now qualified to act as a second engineer of the watch on Canada’s Patrol Class Tender (PCT) Naval Vessels. Royal Canadian Sea Cadets is a national

youth program jointly sponsored by the Department of National Defence/Canadian Forces and the civilian Navy League of Canada. HMCS Quasar Sea Cadet Summer Training Centre recently completed its 56th year of operations and trained over 1,000 cadets throughout the summer from every Canadian province.

Back to School 2012

Back to school lesson No.1: Slow down This back-to-school season, the British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA) reminds drivers to pay close attention to their surroundings when driving through areas where kids are likely to be present. BCAA has also produced “Slow Down, Kids Playing” signs to help make roads safer for children across the province. According to the BC Coroners Service, over 2,400 child pedestrians are seriously injured and approximately 30 are killed each year in Canada. Most of these injuries occur in September and October, followed by May and June. Kids between 5 and 14 are at the greatest risk for pedestrianrelated injuries and fatalities. “School zones are often extremely congested, with parents dropping off and picking up their children,” says Alex Carr, BCAA’s senior manager of Member Advocacy. “The ‘Slow Down, Kids Playing’ signs are a way of reminding drivers to expect the unexpected and be extra careful near schools and residential areas.”

The BCAA Road Safety Foundation has identified two key areas of risk for child pedestrians: driver behavior - such as speeding, making U-turns, stopping in no-stopping zones, and backing up into crosswalks - and pedestrian distraction. A study conducted by the University of Alabama at Birmingham reports that children who talk on cell phones while crossing the street are up to one-third more likely to be hit or nearly hit by a car. Research from the Public Health Agency of Canada also indicates that up to 10 per cent of injuries to pedestrians under the age of 24 were the result of them running into the street without looking - for example, because they were running after a ball. The Foundation offers a few tips to help keep children safe on the road this school year. Tips for drivers: • Slow down and watch out for kids - in or near school and residential areas, intersections and crosswalks, and be prepared to stop. Look for clues such as “Slow Down, Kids

Playing” signs, School Zone signs, BCAA School Safety patrollers, bicycles, and playgrounds. • Expect the unexpected such as kids darting out from between parked cars. Always check for pedestrians when you’re backing up, and be aware that kids could be present on any side of the vehicle. • Let kids out on the side of the car closest to the sidewalk - when dropping them off at school. • Follow the rules of the road yield to pedestrians and do not make U-turns, roll through stop signs or stop in no-stopping zones. • Do not pass school buses when their red lights are flashing - as this means that children are loading and unloading. • Use extra caution in adverse weather conditions. Tips for parents/ guardians and kids: • Teach your kids to find a safe place to cross the road - such as patrolled or marked crosswalks. Make sure they look both ways and make eye

contact with drivers before they cross the street. • Make it a rule for kids to stay off their cell phones or electronic devices while crossing the street - make sure they focus on the road and surrounding environment. • Plan a safe route - walk on the sidewalk and consider having your child walk with a friend or parent - or join a walking school bus. • Teach your kids to look out for parked cars - as cars may pull out or start moving when they don’t expect it. • Make sure your kids wear bright or reflective clothing - so they can be seen in the dark or in poor weather. If they ride a bike, make sure they always wear a helmet and clothing with reflective strips. Equip their bike with lights, reflectors and a bell. The “Slow Down, Kids Playing” signs are free of charge for BCAA Members and only $5 for other B.C. residents. The signs are available at the BCAA Chilliwack Service Centre, 45428 Luckakuck Way.

Partners in Learning!

Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year It is my privilege to say hello to all parents, students, partners and Chilliwack School District learning community members. I am honored and excited to be a part of the Chilliwack School District. I look forward to working closely with the Board, staff and community on our aim: “Every student a graduate prepared for opportunities beyond graduation”.

Summer vacation is nearly over. The Chilliwack Board of Education is excited about the arrival of its new Superintendent, Evelyn Novak, and looks forward to her leadership as she guides the district through the four pillars of our Strategic Plan - Engaging All Learners, Successful Transitions, Technology Integration and Effective Communication. The Board believes that student literacy, academic achievement and social development are fundamental to everything we do! As school opening approaches, it is time to re-focus on teaching and learning. We have an outstanding team of administrators in our schools who provide leadership to professional and competent teaching and support staff. A strength of the Chilliwack School District is the positive working relationships we have with staff, parents, businesses and community groups. The collaboration with our partners provides a dimension that is critical for a successful public education system. We hope that the warm summer days have provided rest and relaxation time for our staff and families. The Board anticipates an exciting year full of opportunities and success. Let’s make it a great year!

Superintendent

Here we are in August and school will soon begin. On September 4th we will begin the new school year with over 13,000 students. The start of each school year is exciting because of the energy our students, staff, parents and community members bring to it - and all the possibilities that working together provides. The continued building of our partnerships and engagement of our Districts’s families and our community stakeholders is vital to our students having the best possible environment for learning.

In the short time I have been here I am reminded that our people are our strength and that we have a highly qualified and dedicated staff and Board serving our student population. We are very thankful to everyone who has worked diligently to prepare us for this new school year, including our custodial, maintenance and technology staffs, as well as our district office and many school-based staff members. We are here to serve our students and I look forward to our work as “Partners in Learning” during the 2012-2013 school year. With enthusiasm and excitement I anticipate a great school year with our students learning, achieving and growing!

ATTENTION MOTORISTS

Liaison Schools:

Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights Stop when approaching a school bus from either direction (Min. 10 metres). This means the school bus is stopped to either load or unload students. Wait until the red lights stop flashing and the driver indicates it is safe to proceed or until the bus moves off. Watch for students crossing the road. Amber Overhead Flashing Warning Lights Slow down and proceed with caution and be prepared to stop as the bus will be stopping to either load or unload students. Railroad Crossings The Motor Vehicle Act states that school buses carrying students must stop at all uncontrolled railway crossings, but Chilliwack School District has extended its policy to include stops at ALL railway crossings. -- Buses will display 4-way flashing amber lights to indicate the bus is stopping or stopped. -- Extra caution is required on the part of the motorists while the bus is stopped or stopping. Passing is permitted.

Living in our community means sharing the roadways with school buses. Let’s work together to ensure another safe year for our bus students.

sd33.bc.ca

Curb Stops on 3 and 4 Lane Roads It is almost impossible to stop 3 or 4 lanes of traffic with Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights. For student safety, the school district employs Curb Stops similar to the City Transit Bus Service. Whenever possible, the bus proceeds through the intersection, students disembark, then cross the street at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk behind the bus. -- The school bus will display the 4-way Amber Flashing Lights, the same as at railway crossings. -- Extra caution is required by motorists to watch for students crossing the road at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk. Passing is permitted, but please use extreme caution. 8430 Cessna Drive Chilliwack, BC V2P 7K4 Phone: (604) 792.1321

Flu precautions Flu from page 12 despite encouragement, fewer than half take advantage of them. The average vaccination rate for long-term care employees is closer to 60 per cent, but Kendall said that rate is still too low and has declined in recent years. Canada’s national advisory committee on immunization considers it a “professional responsibility” for health care workers to get their flu shot every year, Kendall said. The mask option is being offered for workers who have a medical reason not to be vaccinated, and to avoid disputes with employees who simply refuse. “Progressive discipline” would be imposed on employees who refuse both during flu season, just as it would be for those who fail to wash their hands or take precautions when coughing, Kendall said. B.C. is the first province to move to mandatory influenza protection, following the lead of U.S. jurisdictions where vaccination has increased to more than 95 per

cent. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control estimates that complete vaccination of health care workers would reduce the risk risk for patients by 47 per cent, as well as protecting the workers from exposure from infected patients. The annual influenza shot is made available around Thanksgiving each year, to prepare for a season that typically runs from late November until March. Kendall said he doesn’t know why immunization rates for health care workers have declined. But he cited persistent myths about hazards of contracting the flu from the vaccine or experiencing other adverse effects, which he said are very rare. “Some people believe they are healthy and don’t get influenza,” he said.

Offseason acquisition has big skates to fill Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

Austin Plevy’s got a lot of eyes watching him as the Chilliwack Chiefs prepare for the start of the 2012-13 season. The centerpiece of an off-season deal that sent Derek Huisman to Merritt, Plevy comes to town charged with the tall task of replacing last season’s best two-way forward. Huisman scored 30 goals and 65 points in 58 games last season. He was out for every key faceoff and got regular rave reviews from head coach Harvey Smyl for his defensive work. The Smithers native leaves a hard act to follow, and Plevy won’t be expected to do everything that he did. But the former Langley Riverman wasn’t acquired to be a passenger either. He was acquired to lead the offence. “There’s a little bit of pressure knowing how much he did last year, but I’ve got confidence in myself to do what he did,” Plevy acknowledged. “Defensively, Steve O’Rourke did a lot of video work with me last year and really helped me improve my D. It’s probably the most improved part of my game the last two seasons.” Plevy’s offseason arrival in Chilliwack wasn’t by accident. He had to take a

roundabout path to get where he wanted to be, but he was always intent on wearing the red, gold and white of the Chiefs. The 2011-12 season ended with the Rivermen missing the playoffs, and Plevy started his summer by requesting a trade. “Langley’s a great place and I’ve lived there since I was born, but the team and environment wasn’t the right fit for me,” Plevy said, leaving plenty to be read between the lines. “I did ask to be moved. It was a tough decision, but it was the right thing for me to do.” The Rivermen granted Plevy’s trade request, kinda sorta, by sending him to Merritt. The playing rights of Plevy and Sebastien Pare went up the Coquihalla in exchange for Jakob Reichert. In very little time, the Centennials flipped Plevy to Chilliwack along with the rights to goaltender Keith Hamilton, in exchange for Huisman. “I met with the coach (Merritt bench boss Luke Pierce) at a Tim Horton’s in Langley, just to talk about the season,” Plevy said. “Instead, he told me and my dad that I’d been traded to Chilliwack. We just sat there looking at each other like, ‘Wow. This is what we wanted. This is where I

wanted to play.’” If Plevy wasn’t comfortable with how things went in Langley, he knows exactly how things will go in Chilliwack. The 18-year-old is being re-united with the coach who first brought him into the BCHL as a precocious 16-year-old. Harvey Smyl had Plevy in the lineup for 53 games in 2009-10, and thought enough of him two years later to bring him back. “The way he ran the team in Langley and the way I know he ran it last year in Chilliwack, that’s exactly what I want,” Plevy said. “He’s a guy who’s going to be honest all the time. He communicates with you and you always know what he’s thinking. If you’re having a good day, he’ll let you know. If you’re having a bad day, he’ll let you know. He’s just a real players’ coach and he’s an easy guy to look up to.” Plevy is listed on the BCHL website at five-foot-nine and 165 pounds, though he looks bigger in person. Plevy had 13 goals and 43 points in 58 games last year, and looks capable of meeting Huisman’s offensive output. “I’m a speedy forward who can put the puck in the net,” Plevy said. “I’m a pass-first guy who would rather make a play than score a goal, but hopefully

Former Langley Riverman Austin Plevy is being counted on to put pucks in the net and help others put pucks in the net for Chilliwack this season. GARRETT JAMES

this year I can start taking more shots.” If he can put 30 or so of those shots behind BCHL goalies, no one will be second-guessing this trade.

l The Chiefs made a significant player move late last week, picking up 20-year-old forward Ryan Donohoe from the Lyndsay Muskies in exchange for future con-

Nightmare season continues for Huskers If the Chilliwack Huskers thought their winless 2010 and 2011 seasons were rough, they had no idea what was coming in 2012. A 58-0 loss in Victoria Sunday left the Huskers at 0-4. But it’s not even that they’re winless. Local junior football fans are used to that by now. It’s the way they’re losing. Cummulatively, the Huskers have scored 26 points this sea-

son (average of 6.5 per game) while surrendering 234 points (average of 58.5 per game). There are no signs of progress, no indicators that the team is heading for anything but another 0-10 finish. Coming into the season, Victoria’s Rebels were supposed to be a beatable opponent. On Sunday, Westshore rolled up 608 yards in total offence, including 336 along the ground. Rebels running back Greg Morris was a one-man wrecking crew, rumbling for 264 yards and four touchdowns on just 13 carries. Let us spare you pulling out the calculator

and tell you he averaged more than 20 yards every time he touched the ball. Victoria didn’t require a passing game. Still, quarterback Mark Black threw a couple touchdown tosses, one each to Vinne Cannata and Catlyn Todorovich. Todorovich topped 100 yards receiving (104) on four catches. Tyson Plain was one defensive standout for Chilliwack, picking off a Black pass and returning it 29 yards. Brandon Vickers and Kris Bush made the stats sheet with fumble recoveries. Chilliwack’s offence strug-

gled, even by recent standards. Chilliwack generated 37 yards of net offence, all of it coming in the first half. In the second half, the Huskers lost one yard. Quarterback Braden Churly went three of 11 passing for 16 yards and one interception. He was the team’s leading rusher with 25 yards on four carries. Things could get real ugly for the Huskers this weekend as they travel to Nanaimo to face the defending Canadian champion Vancouver Island Raiders. The teams clash Saturday at 2 p.m. at Caledonia Park. The next home game is Sept. 15 versus Langley.

siderations. Donohoe is a veteran of four junior hockey seasons in the OJHL where he recorded 107 points in 135 games, along with 150 penalty minutes.

“From all of the reports I have received, Ryan is very skilled, works hard at both ends of the ice and will bring strong leadership qualities,” Smyl said.

Toth finishes fourth Chilliwack’s Anthony Toth turned in his best Ironman performance to date, but it wasn’t enough to net top spot at Sunday’s Subaru Ironman Canada race in Penticton. The 31-year-old finished fourth overall, 13 minutes and 37 seconds behind Arizona’s Matthew Russell. Competing in the professional men’s division, Toth had the 57th fastest time (57:23) in the 3.8 kilometre swim stage, traditionally his weakest stage. Toth had the 12th fastest time (4:55:37) over the 180 kilometre bike stage and made up serious time in the 42.2 kilometre run. Toth had the fourth fastest run at 3:04:26, and reeled in several of his opponents. But Russell wasn’t going to be caught. He did the run in 2:53:35, crossing the finish line with a total time of 08:48:30. Toth’s final time was 09:02:07. Get results at ironman.ca.

The University of the Fraser Valley men’s soccer team defeated the Pacific University Boxers (NCAA Div 2) 1-0 Sunday afternoon in preseason action in Forest Grove, Oregon. The Cascades improved their exhibition record to 4-1-1 with one match remaining. The Cascades play tomorrow at Capilano University. The Cascades played a great match against the Boxers, comfortably

controlling the tempo of the match, which was played in three 30 minutes periods instead of the conventional two 45 minute halves. The first two periods were scoreless, but UFV had five good scoring opportunities and controlled the majority of play. In the third stanza, the Cascades were rewarded for hard work when veteran Ryan Liddiard (Kamloops) set up rookie striker Dalibor Plavsic (Coquitlam) with a perfect corner kick. Plavsic calmly converted for his second preseason tally. Abbotsford’s Mark Village and Langley’s Matthew Kidwell split the shutout victory in net. “It was a very enter-

KOOP Shirley Anne

July 30, 1952- August 19, 2012 Shirley Anne Koop was born July 30, 1952 to Abe and Siena Koop. She was their second KOOP child and second daughter. Shirley was born with a song in her heart and music was what made her happy. As a child growing up on a farm she grew to love all the animals. Many a time we had to take in stray dogs or cats because she had such a heart for abandoned animals. When she was a girl of 8, she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Shirley was the happiest on the weekends when we visited with our cousins at Grandma and Grandpa Funk’s farm and we all gathered in the living room to sing. School was always a struggle for Shirley but after high school she attended Burrard Inlet Bible School and made many new friends there. One summer she went to Manitoba and NW Ontario and taught backyard clubs for CEF. Shirley spent some of her young adult life in Camrose and Brooks, Alberta. Later in life, Shirley went and took her training for working with special needs people. The last decade of her life she had been working in the group homes and this had brought her much fulfillment and joy as these special ladies became her friends. When her 3 grandchildren came into her life, Savannah, Logan and Cameron she became the happiest Grandma yet. They were what she lived for every day as she awoke. When she discovered she had cancer, she began her journey back into right relationship with her God. Shirley will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor, her gracious hospitality even when she had no

means to do so, and her fierce dedication to her children and grandchildren. She was predeceased by our dear mother, Siena (Jean) in January 1994 and leaves behind her father Abraham Koop, siblings Esther Young (Syd), Victor Koop (Gail) and Gloria Mante (Ken) and her children Ben Lunn and Amy Koop and her fiancé Corey Neyrinck, (grandchildren) Savannah, Logan and Cameron. The service will be held to honor her life on September 4th/2012 at the Sardis Fellowship Baptist Church at 3 pm.

REID Beulah Margaret

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Mom, Grandma, REID Oma, Nana and Aunty “B”, on Friday, August 24th, 2012. She passed away at Valleyhaven Care Home, surrounded by her family. Beulah was born on June 24, 1922, in Cadomin, Alberta. She is survived by her children: Adrienne (Garth) Campbell, Marion (Mike) Price, Denys (Karen) Beynon and Darlene (Jeff) Spooner; her 13 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her sister, Mora McLeod, countless nieces and nephews, and many friends. She is predeceased by her first husband, Phillip Beynon, her second husband, Maynard Reid, and her grandson, Donald Price. Mom shared many fond memories of growing up in the coal branch; spending her days riding horses, taking camping trips on horseback with her Dad, and hopping the train to attend dances in nearby Mercoal. She moved

to Vancouver in 1943, where she found employment as a riveter and then a waitress. She moved her young family to Ryder Lake in the mid 1950’s, and started working at the Vedder Post Office. She ended her career, after 24 years, at the Main post office in downtown Chilliwack. Upon retirement she joined FSNA and served as President for a number of years. She was also instrumental in starting up the local Senior Resources Society, and in helping other seniors prepare their tax returns. Mom enjoyed spending her free time knitting, baking, canning, swimming and camping. She also enjoyed square dancing (where she met Maynard) and spent many years traveling around to various square dance jamborees. Mom valued her family, and the friends she made during her 90 year journey, and felt the loss of every one very deeply. We know that she is now free of pain and enjoying many happy reunions with those who went before her. There will be a Memorial Service held on Thursday, August 30th, at 2 pm,from the Chapel at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 45901 Victoria Ave, Chilliwack,604-792-1344.

RUDERSDORFER Hilda Mary

(Penner) April 9, 1958-August 21, 2012 H i l d a Penner Rudersdorfer of Chilliwack BC was called home by the Lord on Tues- RUDERSDORFER day, August 21, 2012. Hilda was born in Abbotsford to the late August and Mathilda Fussi on April 9, 1958. After graduating from Abby Senior in 1976 she went on to marry and raise her family while completing her Degree and earning her teaching certificate from SFU. Hilda taught for many years at Dr Roberta Bondar Elementary in Abbotsford, and recently earned her Masters in education in the area of counseling from UVic. She touched many lives through her teaching and counseling careers. Hilda had a passion for her family. Wonderful memories were made on their many adventures together. She loved to travel, camp, cook and find the best bargains! Her infectious laugh and her unconditional love of family will be greatly missed. Hilda is survived by her sons Nick (Mandy) and Jordan (Jacquie) Penner, granddaughter Ella Penner, and her husband Reinhard Rudersdorfer. She also leaves behind numerous loving siblings and friends. A celebration of her life will be held at St John’s Anglican Church, 46098 Higginson Road in Sardis BC on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 at 11am with a viewing preceding at 10:30am. Reverend Dale Yardy will be officiating. She will be laid to rest in Chilliwack Cemeteries with Wiebe & Jeske handling the preparations. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the ALS Society of BC or Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack.
