New bridge slated for Hope Suckers Creek replacement project to start in October

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Work on the new Suckers Creek Bridge is set to begin in three weeks. Jakes Construction has been awarded the contract and will be replacing the bridge with an improved two-lane structure featuring a separated pedestrian walkway. “There is no imminent danger or environmental concerns,” said Ian Vaughan, the district’s director of op-

erations. “The new bridge will be safer for vehicle and pedestrian use. The bridge approaches will also provide better site lines for two-way traffic.” The $1.7 million project is being funded by a surplus from the new Kawkawa Lake Road Bridge. The federal and provincial program criteria permitted the increase in scope because of its proximity to the original project. Only $5 million of the budgeted

$10 million was spent on the Kawkawa Lake Road Bridge, which means the residual funds can now be allocated to address the needs at Suckers Creek. The bridge replacement has been approved together with paving of the Fraser Valley Regional District parking lot, construction of a new multiuse pathway along Kawkawa Lake Road, and road resurfacing from Seventh Avenue to the Kawkawa bridge.

Only as young as you feel... and hear. Call now to participate in this great opportunity to be the first to evaluate new digital noise reduction hearing aids, risk free.*

In addition, safety and accessibility improvements will be made to the existing intersections at Sixth and Seventh avenues. Vaughan said the existing Suckers Creek Bridge will remain in place while the new structure is constructed. However, road closures can be expected with traffic control flagging during normal working hours. The project is expected to be completed by Feb. 1, 2013.

Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

OK. With the willingness and support of those that can speak up we are then better able to help those who cannot do so.”   The Purple Lights Campaign originated in Covington, Wash. in 2007. It began as a small community event to raise awareness about the importance of tackling the issues of domestic violence. It has since grown to include many communities in the United States, Canada and the country of Guam. According to Statistics Canada, about 99,000 Canadians were victims of family violence in 2010. Of these, almost 50 per cent were committed by their spouse. Domestic violence cases are also the most numerous for Crown Counsel in

B.C. In 2008/09, Crown Counsel received 10,224 domestic violence cases, which accounted for 14 per cent of all cases. The Purple Lights Campaign kicks off at the Hope Library on Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. with the annual tree lighting ceremony. There will be representatives from the District of Hope, RCMP, Hope Library, and other community service providers. Purple light bulbs can be purchased for a minimum $2 donation from Hope Library, Hope RCMP and the District of Hope throughout October while supplies last. Victim services will also be selling purple pins for a minimum $2 donation. For more information, contact Brueckert at 604869-7770.

Police nab alleged con man A 29-year-old man is facing criminal charges in connection with credit card fraud. On Sept. 9, Hope RCMP received a report of a stolen wallet from a vehicle near Sequoia Creek Road. There were no suspects or witnesses to the theft, however the victim provided information of two fraudulent credit card purchases, one of which was at the Silver Chalice Liquor Store. An employee provided information leading police to believe the suspect was associated with a U-Haul rental vehicle. Hope RCMP located the vehicle, and found it had been rented using false identification. The vehicle was seized by police and examined by the Integrated Forensic Identification Services. A search warrant was later conducted at the suspect’s home and police found various stolen items, including hundreds of credit cards and other personal information. “Identity and credit card frauds are crimes that can put peoples’ lives in a tail spin,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “The tenacious work by the members of the Hope RCMP on this investigation has likely saved many citizens from further victimization.” Curtis Macintosh has been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000 and remains in custody until his next court appearance in Chilliwack on Sept. 28.

New principal in Boston Bar

Boston Bar Elementary-Secondary School has a new face this year. After 32 years in Hudson’s Hope, Theresa Dantuma decided to make a move and take over Jason Cobey’s position as principal in the Fraser Canyon. “I am hoping that working with the existing team of my new colleagues at Boston Bar Elementary- Secondary School, together we can create opportunities for student success,” she said. “Student success – emotional, social, physical and academic that builds a strong foundation for lifelong learning – is the reason I have chosen to be an educator.” Dantuma spent the last year as acting principal of Hudson’s Hope Elementary-Secondary School, where she had been teaching on and off since re-

“In a K-12 school, it is imperative that staff be multitalented and flexible in order for the school to be successful,” she said. Over time, Dantuma covered prep time for elementary colleagues and started teaching various subjects in Grades 1- 7. She eventually took on career and personal counseling for secondary students, supervised students on correspondence, oversaw the graduation program, created school-wide timetables, all the while working closely with administration in school planning. In 2010/2011, Dantuma was granted a sabbatical to travel and volunteer abroad. She taught ESL at a community centre in Rabat, Morocco to students aged 10 to 60. She also volunteered at an SOS Children’s Village in Honduras, creating and developing educational programs for the children there.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Martin to seek B.C. Liberal nomination

Jennifer Feinberg Black Press

UFV criminologist John Martin is “ecstatic” to be welcomed into the B.C. Liberal party and hopes to be given the nod in Chilliwack during the next provincial election. He resigned from the B.C. Conservatives at a press conference at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel Friday, flanked by former B.C. Liberals candidate Laurie Throness and retiring MLA John Les. Martin was peppered with questions about his vociferous criticism of the B.C. Liberals while running in Chilliwack-Hope last spring for the B.C. Conservatives. He was ready with answers. “Simply put, I believe there is more that unites us than divides us,” he said. He called the Liberals’ “a big tent”

“United We

where there’s room for a broad spectrum of opinions from free-enterprisers like himself. He is intent on helping prevent “another disastrous NDP government.” “We have to be big enough to show that we can unite and put the interests of British Columbia ahead of parties.” He decided the B.C. Conservatives party was “no longer” for him upon careful reflection recently. Throness and Les have provided a different perspective on the party and its leader, he said. “I liked what I heard,” he said. “Obviously this is an imperfect party, they all are. However this administration has done a lot of good things. “They’re going in the right and they’re in the process of renewal. And again I am thrilled and excited to be part of that process of renewal.”

CX-5 RAISES THE BAR

The story of the 2013 Mazda CX-5 began in 2005 when Mazda began mapping out its long-term strategy in a post-Ford world. This is how the car business works. What you see in showrooms today was conceived long ago. SkyActiv, the buzzword Mazda is using to describe the company’s comprehensive take on improving fuel economy and reducing emissions in vehicles that remain fun to drive, is all about “wiping the slate clean,” says Mazda senior engineer Dave Coleman, the self-described Director of Technobabble. “No more parts-bin engineering,” he adds. By that he means this: The CX-5 and all that comes next from Mazda represent what you might call a holistic approach to vehicle development. Everything you will see from Mazda going forward, from the powertrains to the platforms, from the designs to engineering top to bottom – all if it is about “squeezing maximum efficiency from existing technologies.” Yeah, but why should you care? You’re not a technogeek. But if you’re like 300,000 other Canadians or so, you will be buying a compact SUV of some sort this year or next year or the year after, each and every year. Canadians love their

heart of the new-vehicle market in Canada with a crossover that is very capable, looks sharp and is fun-to-drive. All at an appealing price. If Mazda gets this right, the CX-5 will not be a niche player. You’re going to see them all over your neighbourhood. The CX-5 is, for the present, the future of Mazda. It’s Mazda going all in for the first time with SkyActiv fuel-saving technologies. For instance, there is a new global platform architecture here, and it is 8 per cent lighter and 30 per cent more rigid than the company’s previous small-car architecture. Most interesting, I think, is that this small-car architecture has yielded a fuel-efficient crossover that not only isn’t a bore to drive, but is almost as big as the current Mazda CX-7. SkyActiv at work. Speaking of which, the heart of it, really, is Mazda’s new Skyactiv-G direct-injected, 2.0-litre, inlinefour-cylinder gasoline engine. Director Technobabble had a long and detailed presentation to explain why this engine is so good, so strong, and so efficient and if you must know, the essence of it all is the 13:1 compression ratio using regular gas. Those who care about compression ratios will know that’s a pretty good number for an

CROSSOVER EMPHASIZES SPORTINESS OVER UTILITY, WITH SKYACTIV PROCESS PROVIDING THE PERFORMANCE BOOST compact SUVs; sales here account for 17 per cent of the entire new-vehicle market and just in the last two years have doubled. So you are very likely to want something along the lines of a Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, Ford Escape, Chevrolet Equinox, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4 and Nissan Rogue. If you are a Mazda owner, you will likely be moving up from a Mazda3, although Mazda wants you if you are a former Honda Civic or Ford Focus owner, too. If that’s you, the base version of the CX-5, the GX with front-wheeldrive, starts at $22,995. The volume model, the GS, lists for $27,895 and the top-of-the-line GT starts at $32,495. All are well equipped, but of course, as you pay more you get more. AWD, for instance, is a $2,000 option on GX and GS models, standard on the GT. Most importantly to Mazda, the CX-5 offers the “best highway fuel economy of any SUV sold in Canada – including hybrids:” 7.8 litres/100 km in the city, 5.7 highway for frontdrive models with the six-speed manual transmission. Front-drivers with the six-speed automatic get 7.7 city/6.1 highway and with AWD and the automatic, 8.0 city/6.4 highway. Using regular gas across the board. Mazda, then, is taking aim at the

everyday car. If you could not care less, suffice to say the 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque are all there and pretty quickly. This Mazda is no slug. And thanks to some fancy engine plumbing, the power comes on smoothly, without any knocking or hesitation. All very impressive. Then there’s the new automatic transmission. Delicious. Again, only a geek would care why the shifts are so good (the torque converter is basically on the job only during gear changes) but let me tell you, up-shifts are smooth and downshifts are rev-matched. They are seriously snappy, too. As is the overall handling of the CX-5. Meanwhile, the exterior design is an eye-grabber and the cabin is roomy, intelligently useful and airy. Outward visibility is exceptional, rear-seat room is good for adults and the big cargo area expands thanks to near-flat folding rear seatback. As family haulers go, the CX-5 looks like a winner. No, that’s damning with faint praise. Mazda, in fact, has just thrown down the gauntlet in this segment. The competition should start tearing down CX-5s ASAP.

Poll finds support for B.C. refinery Tom Fletcher Black Press

Kitimat Clean Ltd. has applied for environmental assessment of a proposed oil refinery, after commissioning a poll that found nearly three out of four B.C. residents support the idea. A province-wide phone survey conducted during September found 78 per cent of respondents were aware of the proposal to build a large refinery at Kitimat to process Alberta heavy crude oil. Provincially, 72 per cent either favoured or were “somewhat supportive” of the proposed $13 billion refinery, which would ship gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel to market rather than tankers of diluted bitumen. Kitimat Clean president David Black said he was pleasantly surprised that so many people have heard of the refinery proposal, and that most support the idea. “Obviously the concept has struck a chord with the public,” he said.

Black remains chairman of Black Press Ltd., and formed Kitimat Clean as a separate company to pursue the refinery project. He is financing the provincial environmental assessment for it, which he expects to take two years and cost several million dollars. Black first proposed the refinery to the B.C. government seven years ago as chairman of the B.C. Progress Board, an advisory panel set up to examine economic and social development of the province. His interest was renewed when Enbridge Inc. applied for federal approval to build the Northern Gateway pipeline from northern Alberta’s oil sands to a new tanker port at Kitimat. The Enbridge project has met strong opposition from communities, aboriginal groups and environmentalists, much of it based on the threat of a tanker spill on B.C.’s North Coast. Black argues that a refinery not only reduces the spill risk, it means 6,000

Since he announced the Kitimat Clean project in August, Black said he has been contacted by Korean and Chinese people looking for more information. Earlier discussions with Enbridge and other Canadian oil companies did not produce financial support to reverse a decades-long decline in B.C. refinery capacity. The poll was con-

ducted by non-editorial Black Press staff during September. It gathered 1,400 responses from the Cariboo, Kootenay, Northern B.C., Lower Mainland, ThompsonOkanagan and Van24 Unit

Opinion Published at Hope, Boston Bar, Yale and surrounding area by Black Press

One way to avoid attention

“They’ve been punished by the media coverage.” This phrase, or variations of it, is often used by defence lawyers lobbying for lighter sentences for their clients. We even hear it from judges. And they all have a point… but only to a point. Indeed, anyone accused of a crime who is unlucky enough to get unwanted media attention pays a price. Some readers or viewers no doubt will rush to judgment, convinced that only the guilty get charged. Sadly, this is not always the case. Innocent people – and all are deemed innocent until proven guilty, in the eyes of our system – suffer from that same system in which justice is meant to be conducted in public. However, once a guilty plea is entered or a conviction rendered, it should be incumbent on the courts to consider any suffering caused by public scrutiny to be off-limits when sentencing. Recently, the lawyer for confessed dog thief Louise Reid told the judge that a news article on her involvement in stealing dogs was posted on a bulletin board at her work; and a front-page story appeared in the newspaper her granddaughter delivers. We can only hope Judge Peder Gulbransen did not consider that as “punishment” when he gave her a one-year probation and ordered her to pay $2,500 in restitution, as the dog was never returned. The argument in court is almost always along the lines that news reports caused the offender embarrassment. The question that must be asked is, what exactly did the guilty parties think would happen? Did they only decide to break the law because they thought no one would find out? The media exists to inform the public of what is happening in their communities; to help recognize those who do well and hold accountable those who choose to act outside the law. There is a simple way to minimize the discomfort: don’t break the law. – Black Press

Swapping sociology for socket sets

B.C. Views

Tom Fletcher Premier Christy Clark’s latest employment announcement set the tone for one of the big issues in the 2013 election.  Flanked by aircraft technician students at BCIT in Burnaby, Clark announced a  $75-million  program to upgrade aging trade and technical school facilities and hire instructors. And she did it with some pointed criticism of the career path chosen by many of today’s high school students. Clark introduced a student electrician, the first woman to win the senior technology education award at her high school, who then went on to get a bachelor’s degree in English and sociology. No job, so she went to BCIT. Her message was clear. The

government’s pre-election budget is going to shift priorities to the huge number of skilled trades jobs that are already going begging in the north. More students will get started in high school, instead of being subsidized to wander around and find themselves with an unfocused university degree that still leaves them in need of practical skills. Shop upgrades were announced for trades training in Prince George, Kelowna and Greater Victoria. There will be new student financial aid, but it will be tied to skill programs the economy needs now. And with the government’s financial situation, you can bet that sociology, women’s studies and the rest of the dead-end programs dear to the hearts of last year’s Occupy campers will feel the pinch. The B.C. Liberal skills training push was partly inspired by last year’s “inequality” protest,

A version of Kevin Falcon’s “welfare air” idea to move unemployed recipients north was included in last week’s announcement by Clark and her jobs czar, Pat Bell. 

Standard The Hope

Called “Job Match,” it’s a  $2.9-million  pilot program in the Peace region. It will deliver basic education and work boots for people in that region before anyone will be flown up from Nanaimo or Nelson. Cruising along at nearly 50 per cent in the polls, the NDP have also put a heavy emphasis on postsecondary. But they’re still playing to the urban Occupy crowd, with a promise of a tax on banks to fund student grants. Instead of providing loan relief after successful completion, they’re going to hand out money at the front end, just like they did in my student days. My experience as a student, a job seeker and a parent is that free money encourages aimless study, and the selection of courses that are appealing rather than safe investments. We already have far too much of that, and I think most students today would be better off with a bigger debt and a well-

paying job. As the new trades plan was being rolled out (and mostly ignored by the Vancouver media), former finance minister Colin Hansen announced he’s retiring. It was Hansen who started the push for skills training back in 2008,  emphasizing that there will be a million new jobs open by 2019, 600,000 of them due to retiring baby boomers. Hansen made a sales trip  to snowy Toronto to launch advertising to lure people to B.C. That effort is being revised with a series of interprovincial and international trips, because even if all 650,000 high school  students graduate and go to work in B.C. from now to 2019, it won’t be enough to fill all the jobs on the horizon.

Time to shut down the gossip mill know” q They feel better about themselves when sharing unfavorable stories about other people q They are unaware of the impact that gossiping has on them and the target of their gossip. If you share my desire to close the gossip mill, I invite you to ask yourself these questions before sharing information about someone else: 1. Is this my story to tell? 2. Would I want this story shared if it

was about me? 3. Does this story raise someone up, or put them down? 4. How could I make my life more interesting so that I share my stories rather than those of others? 5. What’s in it for me to share this story and how could I get this in a more positive way? Some other things that might help in the quest to end to gossip are: q Go to the source, verify the story, and ask if it is OK for you to share it with

others. q If it would have a negative impact or put someone in a negative light, choose not to share it. q If someone wants to share a piece of gossip with you, stop them in their tracks… a simple ‘I’m not interested in hearing about them, I’d rather talk about you’ will do the trick. Let’s shut down the gossip mill and open up a positive, supportive and respectful mill in its place. Who’s with me? Michelle Richardson

BMX bike stolen from local swimming pool

Is it just my opinion or is  crime getting worse in our little town of Hope? On Sept. 14, my grandson Joshua had his BMX bike taken from the swimming pool. He worked hard, cutting grass, cleaning the dog pen, and helping a neighbour build a shed to save money for his bike. The BMX is black, including the rims. The white seat cost him nearly $40 and the red handle grips were $17. If my

child came home with a new bike, I would question how he obtained it. I’d like to think most parents would ask their child.  Last Wednesday, Joshua went swimming at the pool. Being Toonie Day, he had change left over – a bag of nickels. He couldn’t get the key out of the locker so he decided to put his bag of nickels in his runner. When he got out of the pool, his money was gone. Joshua was left heart broken and devastated

– twice in one week. Josh has been taught to respect people and their property and to treat people like he would like to be treated. I would think, most parents have the same values and want their children to grow up to be a respected member of society. If anyone knows the  where  the  BMX bike is, we would appreciate getting it back. Sharon Cameron-Kjos

Christy Clark’s legislature leads to ‘bad ideas’ for B.C. Premier Clark is right about a number of things: politicians have to re-connect with the people. They were elected as our trustees and they should be communicating with the people on a regular basis, just like directors of private corporations communicate with their shareholders. The most effective way to bring about that

dialogue is to hold town hall meetings on a regular basis, to listen to the people, and to discuss the merits of current and new programs and issues. Her recent decision to let the Haisla Indian band take ownership of a swath of coastal waterfront on the Douglas Channel near Kitimat is another example of a “bad idea.” A public auction could conceiv-

ably have generated millions in revenues for the government directly by means of proceeds from the sale, and indirectly, by means of tax revenues from potential future land users. The disposition of these lands could impede the development of the land, and the free flow of seaborne traffic in the Douglas waterways. She also says ‘this democracy’ belongs

to the citizens, but party discipline has effectively destroyed that process. If Clark wants to re-connect, and to re-establish the relationship with their constituents, she will have to ban party discipline, and insist our MLAs get their direction from the people and vote accordingly, without living in fear of reprisals from the party and leaders.

Gossip is defined as “idle talk or rumour, especially about the personal or private affairs of others.” However you define it, gossip creates toxic energy in communities and relationships… yet people do it all the time. Gossipers lose self-respect and the respect of others.

History in Hope

Hospital equipment upgrade The medical-vacuum system at Fraser Canyon Hospital is being replaced, thanks to $100,000 investment by the province. The current system is nearing its end of life, and a complete upgrade is required.

“We’re proud of the efforts Fraser Health has taken to ensure very high standards of operation,” said Dr. Nigel Murray, Fraser Health president and CEO. “The Hope community will benefit

from this announcement, both in terms of patient care and improved energy efficiency.” The medical-vacuum system replacement is planned to be completed by February 2013.

buster, including the original Kawkawa Lake Bridge on which John Rambo, played by Sylvester Stallone, was arrested in the opening scene of the movie. The crew constructed the “Sheriff’s Office” on the lawn of district hall, which was architecturally almost a duplicate of the municipal building itself. They also constructed the false front of a service station at the Junction of Highway 1 and Old HopePrinceton Way and built the gun shop on the street across from district hall on the corner of Third Avenue and Commission St. “Other than the Othello Tunnels, Rambo: First Blood inquiries top the list at our visitor centre,” said McKinney. “Fans literally drive here to spend a day, a night, or sometimes two full days just to tour the filming locations and it doesn’t cost us a dime to promote because the real star of the show is the town and its geography.” Anyone with a story or who was involved with film is encouraged to attend the Rambo meet and greet on Oct. 5 at the Blue Moose, starting at 8 p.m. Attendees will receive a limited edition souvenir DVD of the “Save the Rambo Bridge” series. Saturday night’s main event involves shutting down a portion of Wallace Street to show Rambo: First Blood on a 40 ft. screen provided by Damon Shelton’s Reel Places Productions in Seattle, Wash. “It’s going to be something Hope has never seen before,” said McKinney. “Damon has fallen in love with our community and is a big fan of the movies so he’s bringing his show to town absolutely free.” Organizers have also confirmed that Stephen Chang, who played the Vietnamese commander in the famous “chest cutting” scene, will be in Hope next weekend to sign autographs. “I know a lot of hard work and a great deal of enthusiasm by the committee and organizers has gone into bringing this event to Hope and for that we are grateful,” said Mayor Susan Johnston. “This event is just another awesome way to showcase Hope and all that we have to offer.” For more information on the celebration, visit rambo.travelthecanyon. com, or contact McKinney directly at briandouglasmckinney@gmail.com or 604-860-3669.

Busy month at the library Several presentations offered in October ly do enjoy story time. All the eager faces, each one attentive and ready to get lost in the story. Moreover, puppets rock! There are so many terrific children’s picture books. And here’s a very, very small sampling: • The Wo n d e r ful Book by Leonid Gore – A lost book transforms into a hat, a bed, and a table and then is found by a little boy who, after reading the story, exclaims “What a wonderful book!” • Monster Mash by David Catrow – Bobby Pickett and Leonard Capizzi’s classic novelty song from the

the soon-to-be-rainy evenings from military genealogy (Oct. 3) and a celebration of Canadian women (Oct. 17) to a history of the Fraser-Hope Bridge (Oct. 23). That’s a quick summary of the programs for grownups at the l i br ar y. We also do c h i l d r e n’s story times, both at the library and in the community.

It’s nearly October and we are already well into our fall programs, all listed on our website and in our new fall program guide, “At Your Library.” Has September really whizzed by so fast? This coming month also promises to be a busy month! The Purple Lights Nights tree lighting ceremony will be Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. and artwork “Happy Families” by students at The Art Machine will be revealed. Speaking of art, our annual month-long “Create-A-Creature” contest is back for its third year! We’re asking creative people of all ages to help us decorate for Halloween by entering their best paper, clay, mixed medium creature creations to display at the library. Prizes will be awarded in several categories and winners announced on Oct. 31. Very spooky! We’ll also have a variety of presenters in

1960s comes to life with some truly lively illustrations – a sure Halloween hit! •  Oh No, George by Chris Haughton – George is a good dog faced with oh-so-many temptations. I love this book because it deals with the important developmental task of self-regulation. The illustrations are fabulous and the story hilarious. And coming soon – Eric Litwin’s latest, Pete the Cat Saves Christmas! In case you missed it, Pete the Cat I Love my White Shoes was an instant favourite here in Hope a few years ago. Litwin has also written Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons and Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes. I can hardly wait to see this new book! And by the way,

**** On the nightstand: Just finished Joyner’s Dream by Canadian writer, Sylvia Tyson. This is the story of the Joyner family from England in the 1780s to present day Toronto, written in a family journal form. What a great story this was! Also, The Western Lit Survival Kit: An Irreverent Guide to the Classics, from Homer to Faulkner by Sandra Newman. The title about says it all. Also, War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. After seeing Spielberg’s movie War Horse and the DVD War Horses of WWI (both available at the library), I’m anticipating a good read!

Celebrating B.C. Rivers Day in Hope Trip to Skagit River and Ross Lake planned on Sunday

Barry Stewart Hope Standard

HOPE MOUNTAIN CENTRE PHOTO

Residents are invited to paddle the scenic Skagit River and Ross Lake this Sunday in celebration of B.C. Rivers Day and the saving of the Canadian Skagit from flooding.

explore the Skagit River and Ross Lake together. “People can bring their own canoes or kayaks — or they can paddle in a voyageur canoe that will be provided,” says Pearce. Compared to previous trips on the Fraser River, Pearce says this flat water event will not be nearly as technical or demanding. “But part of the fun of these events is being out on the water with dozens of people. It’s like a carnival out there,” he enthuses. “We’ll be exploring the mouth

of the Skagit, where it enters Ross Lake,” he says. “I’ll be going up there this week to scout it out and see how far up the river we can go at this time of year. With the lack of rain and the draw-off, the reservoir could be pretty low. “Fran Thomas was a lead voice in Hope, during the struggle,” adds Pearce. “She spoke at council meetings and wrote articles in the paper. She passed away recently but her husband Charlie is going to come up and send us off.” Hope Mountain Centre is a non-

profit society but needs to cover its expenses for the event — including lodging the guest speakers at the Skagit Motel. Lunch will be provided, so pre-registration is a must, to help in planning.  You can’t just show up at the lake. Pearce says the rates run from $50 for adults and $20 for children, if they provide their own boats. For the voyageur canoe, it’s $90, all taxes included. Family and group rates are available. After driving the 60 kilometres to the lake, participants will gather

Reservations can be made by phone — or on the group’s website at hopemountain.org. There’s further information about the event at the site and you might also want to do an online map search for an overhead view of the disputed lands and the already-massive lake that has formed behind the 1949 dam.

History is often made when the little guy stands up against “The Man” and draws a line in the sand. One such David-and-Goliath moment took place about 40 years ago, when Seattle City Light — under an agreement with the B.C. government — planned to raise the height of their existing Ross Dam by over 36 metres, making it the High Ross Dam. The project would have caused the Skagit River to back up well across the Canadian border, destroying a prime wilderness area. Hope residents took up the cause, says local naturalist Kelley Pearce — but thanks to the potential destruction on the American side of Ross Lake, the issue went international and drew even more support. Eventually, an energy purchasing deal for B.C. power put the high dam project off for another 80 years. “With the old dam at full pool, it floods two square kilometres [200 hectares] on this side of the border,” says Pearce, “but the high dam would have flooded an extra 2,000 hectares of Canadian territory. “It also would have flooded the Ruby Creek and the Big and Little Beaver valleys on the American side. “It was an environmental battle that went on from 1969 to 1983,” says Pearce. “On the Canadian side, we had the ROSS ‘Run Out Skagit Spoilers’ committee, with Ken Faquharson, a Canadian hydro engineer, as their spokesperson. “On the American side, they had the North Cascades Conservation Council.” Tom Brucker, an American environmental lawyer, helped lead the lobbying from the U.S. side. Both he and Faquharson will be guest speakers this Sunday (Sept. 30) when the Hope Mountain Centre hosts a Rivers Day event at Ross Lake. “The public is invited to paddle the scenic Skagit River and Ross Lake in celebration of B.C. Rivers Day and the saving of the Canadian Skagit from flooding,” says Pearce, program director for Hope Mountain Centre. “Paddlers of every fitness level and experience are invited to join a flotilla of boats that will

OBITUARIES

ESPIE. Mary (May) Bagra Jan. 23, 1920 – Aug. 25, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Mary (May) ESPIE. May, or Auntie May, as she was known to so many, passed away quietly with both nieces at her side on Aug. 25th at 12:50 am. in the morning at her home in St. Vincent’s-Langara Care Home in Vancouver, B.C. where she had resided for the past six years. Born on Jan. 23, 1920 in Glasgow, Scotland, she was predeceased by her sister, Anna, and her parents, Elsie, and Thomas. She is survived by her two loving nieces, Carol (Graeme), and Olivia (Nick), a great niece, Katherine, and a great nephew, Thomas. Auntie May lived her life for three main things: her family, her work, and her church. From World War II to 1950 May worked for the Glasgow Fire Service as a clerk in the Central Fire Station (the HQ). Next she worked as the Wolverhampton Town Clerk’s assistant until she moved to Canada in 1967. She came to Vancouver by ship with her mother, her sister and two nieces. The family moved to Hope and bought the Rupert Taylor Motel. May looked after her mother faithfully until 1969, when her mother died. May then began her work as a medical office manager for Dr. Bob Morrison and latterly Dr. David Singleton. She knew several generations of families in Hope from babyhood to maturity. She knew her job well, loved it and was only late for work once in 33 years. Throughout her life May always attended church, whether the Scottish Presbyterian of her childhood, or the United Church. She spent many happy years at Hope United Church. When she retired (at age 80!) she moved into a senior’s apartment complex, Chishaun. There she lived until a fall precipitated a move into St. Vincent’s-Langara Care Home. She will be forever loved and missed by her family. She was like a mother to us and our Rock of Gibraltar. The family wishes to thank the compassionate staff at St. Vincent’s-Langara, and May’s friends from Hope & from Chishaun for their kindness and care over the years. Please feel free to send your memories, pictures or condolences by email to: oliviaedwards@telus.net. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in May’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Society. A celebration of May’s life will be celebrated on Saturday, Sept. 29th, 2012 at 3 p.m. at Shaughnessy Heights United Church (1550 W. 33rd Ave., Vancouver, B.C.- 33rd & Granville St.).
