Ecovillage gets final green light Servicing issues for unique Yarrow community get resolved Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Yarrow Ecovillage members are now ready to move forward on their mixeduse development. “I think we can double underline the word ‘finally’ on this one,” said Coun. Jason Lum, at the Tuesday council meeting, referring to the six years Ecovillage members had been working toward final approval. Chilliwack council reconsidered and adopted a rezoning bylaw Tuesday that changed the zoning of the property from Rural Residential to an Ecovillage designation. The project had been held at third reading since 2006, until certain servicing requirements could be met, with issues arising from fire flow and waste water treatment concerns. Coun. Lum offered his congratulations on the rezoning milestone, and thanked staff as well as members living in the intentional and sustainable community known as Yarrow Ecovillage. “It’s been a long go,” he said. “It’s a neat place and I encourage you to go see what they are doing at the Ecovillage. It’s unique and they’ve integrated well into the community.” One of the ecovillage founders, Michael Hale, said after the meeting it was “gratifying” to get the blessing of staff and council in this way. The staff report noted that all the “outstanding technical issues” related to servicing had since been addressed. Now they can go ahead with constructing a wetland for waste water treatment and drainage, and the purchase of an electrical generator to increase water pressure to address fire flow issues.

Schoolmates at Ecole la Verendrye and the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley team cheer as Makayla Morissette, 11, gets her head shaved at the school on Monday. Two staff members at Magicuts volunteered their time to help with the event. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Tour de Valley cheers student’s sacrifice Jenna Hauck The Progress

Makayla Morissette jumps around the schoolyard, her six long pigtails bouncing up and down. Someone asks her if she’s nervous. “Nope!” she says with confidence. Are you excited, she’s asked. “Yep!” she says with a huge smile. The 11-year-old is about to get her hair cut — then shaved. It’s in memory of her grandmother, Gwen Sinding, who

died of cancer in August, 2011. During the summer, Makayla asked her mother, Adriana Brooks, if she could shave her head to raise money for cancer research. She didn’t want to simply cut her hair and donate it. She didn’t want someone else to shave their hair with her for support. She wanted to donate her hair, then have it shaved down to almost nothing — and she wanted to do it by herself. On Monday, in front of her schoolmates at Ecole la Verendrye, Makayla proudly sat in a chair and one-by-one, her naturally highlighted,

brown-blonde pigtails were snipped off. Every time she held one of the nine-inch bunches of hair up in the air, people cheered. With her now-short and uneven hair sticking up in all directions, Jean Pothier from B.C. Sheriff Service, took an electric razor to her head to make the first shave. He was one of 25 cyclists that stopped by the school for the head shave that day along with his Tour de Valley team from Cops for Cancer. The team will be covering 875 km of road in the Fraser Valley alone over nine days,

from Sept. 27 to Oct. 5. The Tour de Valley team has raised more than $250,000 so far for the Canadian Cancer Society. For a team of one, Makayla herself has raised a fair bit of money for cancer research. She set a goal of $1,000, and surpassed that on Monday. She has now set a new fundraising goal of $2,500.

Santa Claus parade replaced with winter festival Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

The Santa Parade in downtown Chilliwack is dead in its tracks. When no host organization stepped forward for 2012, city council decided to reallocate the $7,000 for a new winter festival being organized by the Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA). “I’m a huge fan of the Santa

Claus parade, and I always have been,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz after the meeting. “I took my children there when they were very young, and attended right up until last year.” So it was with some “reluctance” and “sadness” that she will be saying goodbye to the parade for 2012. “The purpose of the Christmas parade is to encourage the community to visit downtown Chilliwack and share in the festive spirit,” said

Gaetz. “The BIA’s winter festival activities share the same objective and we’re delighted to be their partner on this great event.” The inaugural ‘Christmas in the City’ event by the BIA in 2011 included free, family events, like a Christmas tree lighting session, breakfast with Santa and a winter carnival. “This is the second year for the BIA’s winter festival activities in the downtown and we’re looking

forward to adding an exciting new element to this event in partnership with the City of Chilliwack,” says Kathy Funk, executive director of the BIA. They’ll be looking for float builders for an activity that they will unveil soon, she said. “What they’re proposing is new and different, and I guess in every city’s evolution there is a time for change if something isn’t working well,” Gaetz said.

The funds the city contributed in the past paid for a parade coordinator. Last year, Star-FM stepped up to take over the mammoth task of coordinating the parade, but was unable to commit to the huge undertaking for more than a year. City officials will revisit the matter in 2013 to see if anyone wants to reinvigorate and organize the parade at that point, said Gaetz. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

Chilliwack teen charged with sex assault Suspect charged with a similar offence in 2011

A video chronicling a leadership camp for teens struggling with additions will be screened at Galaxy Cinemas Oct. 11.

Film features inspiring stories of recovery Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Some of the teens battling addictions who attended a wilderness camp at Chilliwack Lake said it might have saved their lives. A 12-minute video called Do We? will be screened at Galaxy Cinemas in Chilliwack at 11 a.m. on Oct. 11. The public is invited to hear some of the lifechanging stories. “We could have screened this film anywhere across the Lower Mainland but we chose Chilliwack because it’s a truly caring community,” said Lee Anne Hanson, of Pacific Community Resources Society. “Chilliwack was the arms that held these kids in a safe environment while they were at

camp.” PCRS collaborated with Alcohol-Drug Education Service to create the fiveday camping experience in Chilliwack earlier this summer for graduates of the DEWY (Day-Evening-Weekend Youth) program. Now they’re also working “diligently” toward building a new youth leadership program in Chilliwack for teens in recovery, she said. It’s one of the efforts being waged in the interim, until the Chilliwack Health Contact Centre is open. Coming out to see the film next week might offer direction to anyone at their wits’ end about kids who’ve left home or started abusing alcohol and drugs. DEWY provides out-patient,

day-treatment activities over 10 weeks for Lower Mainland youth aged 13 to 18 with alcohol and drug problems. “The film could provide a window on what can be done,” said Hanson. “The biggest number of calls I get is from parents of these kids who are looking for help. They always ask, ‘What do you have for me?’” One struggling youth who was living under a bush is now a peer leader, she said. “It’s caring communities that have these outcomes,” she said. “You can throw all the money you want at a problem, but without a caring community, you’re lost.” The Leadership Camp was held June 17-22 and it allowed the campers and staff a chance to bond while communing with

nature at Chilliwack Lake. “We felt it was important to emphasize leadership skills,” Hanson said. “It would allow the DEWY grads to get to the next level, so they wouldn’t regress.” They did it all without electricity, running water, cell phones, or any of the hightech comforts of youth culture. Besides hiking and canoeing, the A-DES committed to produce a DVD capturing the essence of DEWY and the young people’s camp experiences. Videographer Ross Friesen and writer Jay Niver put together the full-length video, Do We? which will be screened on Oct. 11. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

A 19-year-old Chilliwack man is charged with sexually assaulting a young woman in downtown Chilliwack in the early morning hours last Saturday. Chilliwack RCMP got a call at 6:20 a.m. on Sept. 29 from the 19-year-old victim who was at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital saying she had been physically and sexually assaulted in Chilliwack near Spadina Avenue and Yale Road.

In touch with Gerard Rowley We all experience pain in our lives from time to time and the pain can come in a variety of ways; emotional, spiritual, physical. At times, it is severe and we don’t know how to cope. As strange as this may sound to some, pain can also help us. Without getting into the subject on a philosophical level, suffice to say, pain and hardships can help us by strengthening, renewing or restoring our life. It can also open up doors we never thought of opening. This is exactly what happened to Gerard Rowley. Gerard was born in Newcastle-under-Lyme, England and as a youngster, the family moved around quite a bit. “It was difficult because to visit my friends, I had to travel quite a bit but if you wanted to keep in touch, that’s what you had to do,” he said. His father owned a steel fabrication business and from the time that Gerard was about 13, he began his working career. “I actually started on a farm. I milked the cows, cleaned up after them; I’d let them out because in those days they were out on the pasture and they had to come back in twice a day to be milked. I also delivered milk,” he explained. As if this wasn’t enough, he also had a paper route. “I needed the money so that I could spend it on clothes and records and stuff,” he laughed. The middle of three

children, Gerard didn’t particularly enjoy school. “I didn’t understand the importance of it. I liked to have fun. Many of my teachers were too Victorian. I think that if they had made learning fun, I would have enjoyed it. I was always keen on history and I did enjoy reading, though.” He attended technical college for four years after high school, where he studied mechanics. “I worked in a garage after that and then got into welding and then fabrication.” He married Julie in 1986 and four years later, the couple immigrated to Canada to get away from the hustle and bustle of the English cities as well as the downturn in the British economy. “After we arrived here, looking for work was rather difficult. No one recognized my qualifications so I had a decision to make. I could either go back to school and train for the

same thing or retrain altogether,” he said. Then, Gerard injured his back and the pain resulted in a major change in his life. “My back injury resulted from moving a couch into an elevator. I heard Ana my back Macedo click and pop and then came the numbness and pain. For six months I was in extreme pain. I couldn’t stand, I couldn’t sit, and I couldn’t sleep. There was just no comfortable position,” he recalled. Gerard began receiving massage therapy and one day he began telling the massage therapist that he was looking for work; preferably in the medical field. “He recommended that I look

into massage therapy and once I looked into it, I realized that it was everything that I wanted. The other thing was that because of my injury, I had a good perspective of what people feel when they’re in pain,” he said. In 1995, Gerard returned to school and two years later graduated from the West coast College of Massage Therapy. “I started as a Registered Massage Therapist in early 1998. It has been a good career and very rewarding. I like to be able to help people out,” he smiled. Gerard was working out of the Chilliwack Chiropractic Health Clinic but as of July 3rd, he moved into his own premises on Chilliwack Central Road, just east of Prest Road. “I was with the Clinic for 13 years and they were good people and the staff was great but sometimes it’s just time to move on and do your own thing,” he said. Gerard is a very calm, kind and straightforward guy; a demeanor that undoubtedly helps him in his career. When he has some down time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two lovely children and admits that he still loves his books.

Two fires kept Chilliwack firefighters busy overnight Tuesday, but no one was injured and no significant damage occurred according to initial reports. A fire in a hay barn on Jesperson Road had “a lot of potential” for damage, Assistant Fire Chief Ian Josephson said, “but, fortunately, our guys got out there in time.” Spontaneous combustion is the suspected cause of the barn fire that was reported at 5 a.m. Wednesday. The second floor of a two-storey commercial/ residential structure on McSween Road was gutted in the first fire reported at about 10 p.m. Tuesday. The ground floor, which was the commercial part of the structure, suffered only water damage. Both fires are still under investigation, and more details may be released later.

Chilliwack’s school enrolment, upon which B.C. government funding for K-12 students is based, was very nearly spot-on this year. And credit for an accurate prediction goes to the collaboration between school district staff, school principals and vice-principals, and the community. “We predicted very close to what we’re at,” Evelyn Novak, superintended of schools in School District #33, said after a head-count of students Wednesday. “I think our principals and vice-principals have done a fabulous job in predicting and getting as accurate a number as possible,” she said. The actual head-count as of Sept. 30 was 11,840 students in the school district, just 63 more than the 11,777 predicted this summer after extensive collaboration between school officials, area residents, and other local sources. Rohan Arul-Pragasm, assistant superintendent, pointed out that the difference between prediction and actual head-count is less than one per cent. “I think that’s pretty good,” he said. “We’re in good shape.”

When council first approved the original rezoning to that of Ecovillage in 2006, it wasn’t the first ecovillage community in Canada to obtain sustainable zoning, but Hale underlined, it was the first known time a municipality would name the zone ‘Ecovillage’ specifically. “It’s an amazing feeling of gratitude,” Hale said after council approved the bylaw. “It’s also a feeling of relief and pride in all the people who worked so hard to make our vision a reality.” The vision includes different components for the 25-acre site. They range from the multigenerational Groundswell co-housing units, to a certified organic farm, to the mixed-use development they’re planning for the two acres closest to Yarrow Central Road. The new parcel will include residential

Region’s hot property zones giving up gains, says expert Black Press

Sagging demand from home buyers is putting downward pressure on Lower Mainland real estate prices, but mainly in areas where prices had shot up faster than the rest of the region. September home sales in Metro Vancouver were down eight per cent from August and have plunged 32.5 per cent from a year ago, according to the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV). And a composite benchmark price that tracks all residential property movement in the area is down 2.3 per cent in the past three months, or down 0.8 per cent from a year ago. That decline has been a more modest 1.8 per cent over three months and 0.1 per cent from a year ago over the entire Lower Mainland – which includes the Fraser Valley, where values have held up better. “In some areas and neighbourhoods we’re seeing price declines, especially in the areas that ran up the most,” said Tsur Somerville, director of UBC’s Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate at the Sauder School of Business. “There is a noticeable difference between this West VancouverVancouver west sideRichmond grouping and everywhere else,” he said. Prices in the three oceanfront cities that had soared in 2010 and 2011 have dropped five to seven per cent from their recent peaks, he noted. The priciest district remains Vancouver’s west side, where benchmark detached houses typically cost close to $2.1 million. That’s down 6.5 per cent from a year ago but still up almost 40 per cent over the past five years. It’s a completely dif-

ferent story in Maple Ridge, where a detached house typically changes hands at $468,000 – the same price as five years ago and up just over one per cent from a year ago. The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, said residential property as a whole declined 0.4 per cent in the past three months, but is up 2.1 per cent year-over-year. Detached houses are up three per cent from a year ago at $549,000 while townhouses are down 1.7 per cent to $305,700 and apartments have gained 4.1 per cent to $198,800. “The Fraser Valley is much more stable than other areas of

the Lower Mainland,” Somerville said. Demand for higher end homes has fallen off the fastest in both Metro Vancouver and the Valley. Greater Vancouver real estate board president Eugen Klein said Ottawa’s elimination of 30-year governmentinsured mortgages earlier this year has led to a “clear reduction in buyer demand” because the measure intended to rein in Canadian debt loads has made homes less affordable here. But Somer ville doesn’t think the federal government’s tightening of mortgage rules is playing a major role. “That only applies

on mortgages with a down payment of 25 per cent or less,” he said. “Nobody’s out buying a high-end home with a three per cent down payment.” Somerville said a slowdown in Lower Mainland residential market demand has been underway since last December and is being matched by flattening prices. He doesn’t detect anything likely to trigger a much deeper drop in the market. “To have some dramatic radical change you need to have something dramatically and radically change and I don’t see what that is.”

Food chain focus

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

The massive and unprecedented recall of beef that emerged from a Brooks, Alberta processing plant should cause people to pause and think about the food chain, and how demands for low consumer prices may have a long-term effect that goes far beyond this recall. The way that meat goes from farm to the table has changed dramatically in the past 50 years. B.C. farmers and ranchers produce a large supply of cattle for the meat market each year. But for the most part, they are now shipped off to huge feed lots on the Prairies for a final fattening up before being butchered. A few farmers and ranchers raise some cattle to full size and sell meat to customers or specialty butcher shops directly. In virtually all cases, this meat is more expensive — but it comes with the assurance that the final consumer knows just where the meat originated and how it has been handled. Almost every single large grocery retailer buys beef from a handful of huge plants, such as the Brooks facility. It has been estimated that up to 40 per cent of the beef sold in B.C. comes from that plant. That’s why the recall list is such a long one. Grocery chains today have to offer low prices to get customers in the door, and meat prices are among the most closely-watched. Getting good value for your dollar has never been more important. But as details about the recall emerge, it seems clear that the volume of cattle moving through the Brooks plant and the sheer difficulty in keeping E.coli infections under control are major factors in this serious health issue. And this is serious. It’s not just ground beef that has been affected, but steaks and roasts. These cuts have rarely been reported as being infection risks in the past. It is vitally important to cook meat thoroughly, and instructions about how to properly do so are readily available. But it is also important to know where your meat comes from. A push for low prices and efficiencies isn’t a bad thing, but it should never be at the expense of good health. This is particularly true for those who are most susceptible to very serious and lifelong challenges if infected by E.coli. Hopefully out of all this will come a demand by meat eaters for better information about the food they eat. ~ Black Press

Party leaders’ spin contest ends in tie

VICTORIA – The Union of B.C. Municipalities convention is the political event of the year for B.C. party leaders, especially heading into a provincial election. Up first was NDP leader Adrian Dix, who drew a large crowd of local politicians last week for the traditional early-morning spot that follows a long evening of receptions. In contrast to his debut last year, a typical litany of political attacks on the B.C. Liberals, Dix declared he would take the high road. And perhaps mindful of Carole James’ downfall after her content-free speech to the 2010 UBCM convention, Dix set out policies. He told delegates an NDP government would restore local authority over Metro Vancouver transit (no more toothless “mayor’s council”) and mountain resorts (no more Jumbo ski resort permits

issued over local objections). Dix would also let communities decide if they want public-private partnerships for large construction projects. (Federal Heritage Minister James Moore later noted that if communities or provinces wish to decline federal funds due to this ideology, they Tom are free to do so.) FLETCHER Then Dix accused the B.C. Liberals of cutting forest inventory spending by 77 per cent over the last decade, meaning decisions like rebuilding the Burns Lake mill are being made “in the dark” for the first time in a century. That’s a damning charge, so I checked it against forest minis-

try budget records. As with all government programs, accounting changes can give a misleading appearance of large cuts or increases from year to year. And indeed forest inventory spending has bounced around during the B.C. Liberal term. The budget for forest inventory staffing and operation was about $8 million in 2001-02, rising as high as $15 million and falling to a low of $5.1 million in recession-hit 2009-10. The estimate for the current fiscal year is $9.7 million, an increase to try to catch up with the pine beetle disaster. Crown forest inventory has indeed fallen behind due to rapid shifts caused by unprecedented insect and fire damage. But has spending been slashed as Dix claims? No. It has increased. Next up was Premier Christy Clark, in full campaign mode. In

the Gordon Campbell tradition, she brought the goodies out in her speech to close the convention. More than $200 million has been scraped together to “accelerate” capital projects at schools, hospitals and other facilities across the province. These projects were already on the books, but they’ve been moved up for obvious political purposes. Or at least the announcements will be moved up. Four-laning of the last narrow stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Kamloops will continue over 10 years. This is a federal-provincial project that will eventually be finished regardless of who is governing in Victoria or Ottawa. It includes some of the most staggeringly expensive road building in Canada, in the Kicking Horse Pass, a short section that could require two tunnels and up

to 12 more bridges. Clark also announced a longrange plan to replace the George Massey tunnel under the Fraser River. It will likely be a bridge, because the tunnel is a bottleneck not only for Highway 99, but also for large ships going up-river. This is another project that will proceed eventually, and there is no specific financial commitment yet. I haven’t found any outright false claims in Clark’s presentation, just the kind of creative accounting and blacktop politics familiar to B.C. voters. As always, I’m pleased to hear from people with specific corrections. For now, call it a tie. Neither speech represents a proud moment for our provincial leadership..

Limit the speed of big trucks I read in The Progress today a letter from a lady in Yarrow about a dump truck running over her dog and killing it in front of her and her 11-year-old son (Drivers urged to slow down, Progress, Oct. 2) and I have to side with her on this one. Some people may think it was just a dog. Well, first of all most pet owners think more highly of their pets than people. Secondly that could of easily been a child in that bike lane. I myself had a real scare 12 years ago when I was bringing my newborn son home from the hospital. A big rig cut us off and put the side of my car in the ditch as he was passing us on the

highway. I travel with my work everyday into Vancouver and area so I see my share of horrible drivers, both in large trucks and smaller vehicles. It is a lot scarier to see a semi tailgating someone or weaving in and out of traffic. Last week a rolled-over dump truck at Mount Leman in Abbotsford halted traffic all the way to 200 Street in Langley. Luckily no one was hurt or killed. In my 11 years living in the Fraser Valley and commuting I have seen a lot of bad accidents involving semi trucks. Yes a lot of small cars too. The difference is when a semi is involved the outcome is usually a lot worse.

These trucks nowadays have so much power and I find myself often getting passed on the highway at very high speeds. The fact is due to the size and weight it takes longer to stop these rigs than small cars. I would like to see these trucks speed governed to 100km/hr. Also they should have to remain in the right lane at all times. I will probably get a bunch of letters from truckers giving me the gears about how they too have deadlines too meet and how there are so many bad drivers who are not transport drivers, but I just want too say this is my opinion and you have yours.

Is the Good Samaritan gone for good? already forgotten what they’d said. And so it happened that when he needed someone, my father, who has helped others all his life, found no one to help him. To take five minutes and guide him home. That he arrived there eventually—and recognized the place— was no doubt due to God’s guidance alone. Forget about any “state of the nation” speeches. Dad’s story paints a sorry picture of today’s “state of the heart.” We’re petrified of strangers. We’ve lost respect for our elders. We’re scared to touch. We’re too self-centered to get involved. And we assume everyone carries a cell (Dad can’t

manage F27_Fuel_banner7x3 one). Oh, I’m not pointing fingers at Chilliwack— things like this happen everywhere. In fact, I’m not pointing fingers at anyone at all. I’m doing what my darlin’ dad did a few days later, when I called from two provinces over to wish him a happy 89th birthday: He told me everything about the day he discovered the Good Samaritans had disappeared. And he told me it took him a few days for his head to clear. Then he said, “I’m okay, Kathleen. I guess I just needed to cry on your shoulder awhile.” Thank you for letting me do that on yours.

people saw him there, mid-day, cast down in one of the busiest sections of town. “I wasn’t hurt, Kathleen,” he told me later, over the phone. “And the scooter wasn’t damaged. But something really bad happened in my head. I got all turned around.” It should have taken Dad less than five minutes to scoot home. Instead, for over an hour, he wandered around town pleading for help. Asking for directions.

Monday, September 24th was an exquisite fall day in Chilliwack, I heard from two provinces over. But something went missing on that day. My elderly father, a long-time resident of your city, discovered that there are no more Good Samaritans. On that day Daddy set out on his mobility scooter to visit a friend in the hospital—almost across the road. En-route home, his scooter tumbled off a curb and he tumbled off the scooter. I have no idea how, but somehow my father—who needs help to walk— managed to right his little machine and climb back on. I wonder how many

June, as major project partners like BC Housing and Fraser Health, along with PCRS and City of Chilliwack came to the table and hammered out a slightly revised plan. “The construction tender is now approved to go out,” said Lum. “That’s fantastic news, as there are lots of people who’ve been waiting for this project to be finalized.” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said she was tracked down by BC Housing officials at the recent UBCM conference, and learned “that we’ll be hosting a ground-breaking” at the end of the month. The old Days Inn site on Young Road will be renovated and the facility will measure 5,444 square feet. The centre will feature 22 units of supportive housing on two floors, for people who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, with addiction and mental health issues. A mental health nurse clinician and psychiatrist will be part of the initial complement of services, along with HIV/ Hepatitis C services, adult addiction counselling and youth counselling, as well as an employment services, and a court advocate.

Arul-Pragasm said the Chilliwack school district has been growing steadily for the past 15 years, and this year the numbers will again be “slightly higher” than last year. But Novak didn’t think such a small difference will have any impact in B.C. government funding and delivering education to Chilliwack students. “We’re confident we have the resources we need to support our students,” she said. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

100 jobs still open at Stream Robert Freeman The Progress

The final push is on to fill more than 100 job openings at Stream Global Ser vices in Chilliwack - jobs that can lead to careers in the computer industry. “If you like working with the latest and greatest in technology, that’s mostly what we do around here,” said Mike Robinson, Stream’s site director in Chilliwack. And for people who like working in a team environment — they’ll also find a good fit at Stream, he said. “If you like that type of environment, you fit very well in here,” he said. Stream provides customer support to highprofile clients around the world, and the Chilliwack call-centre was opened in 2001 to service the North American market.

News Thumbs down on casino benefit reform

Cataract Surgery in BC is now FREE!

A proposal to redistribute some of the $82 million a year casino host cities get to cities without gambling facilities was rejected amid concerns over how it would work. Advocates said the current system where

As of June 4, 2012 the Government of British Columbia will provide regular soft folding intraocular lenses at NO COST to residents of BC undergoring cataract surgery with valid MSP coverage.

Typical wait times for those requiring cataract surgery are less than two months at Chilliwack General Hospital.

are registered through player cards so the B.C. Lotter y Corp. could easily estimate how much money is spent at a given casino by people who live outside that host city, allowing benefits to be apportioned equitably

to other municipalities. “The current regulations are pitting communities against each other,” he said. “It’s creating an injustice between local governments around the province.” Port Coquitlam reps said they didn’t intend for host cities to lose money, suggesting the province could keep them whole while providing a per capita share of gaming profits to the have-nots – a scenario many at UBCM considered unlikely. Other delegates said have-not cities made their choice in the past not to have a casino – or the local costs and impacts that sometimes accompany them. View Royal Coun. David Screech said BCLC couldn’t provide the address of every patron and suggested interested communities instead pursue local gambling revenuesharing agreements.

Ferries fares set to rise four per cent Jeff Nagel Black Press

BC Ferries has the green light to raise fares by up to 12 per cent over three years and passengers should expect less frequent sailings on some major runs. Increases in the fare cap of roughly four per cent a year were approved Monday by B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee. The ferries regulator also directed BC Ferries to come up with more than $54 million in savings over four years, including $30 million through service cuts. BC Ferries will trim some sailings starting Oct. 9, particularly when vessels are running with light passenger loads on major routes between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. Regular odd-hour sailings won’t be affected, but nearly 100 even-hour sailings are to be scrapped between those terminals this fall and winter to help save an estimated $1 million. Tsawwassen-Duke Point sailings that have been running less than 25 per cent full account for nearly half the planned cuts.

Increases in the fare cap of roughly four per cent a year were approved Monday by B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee.

Potential cuts to Gulf Islands routes are to go to public hearings in advance of any decision. BC Ferries reported declining fare revenue in 2011, recording the lowest number of passengers in 21 years. Vehicle traffic is at a 13-year low. The province injected an extra $80 million into the ferry service this year to avert the threat of considerably higher fare increas-

es as well as deeper service cuts. One option Macatee expects the corporation to explore is the possible conversion of some ferries to natural gas, reducing the impact of high fuel costs. The corporation is to file an alternate fuel use plan within 30 days, as well as a separate plan to cut fuel consumption. – with files from CTV

Business Pipeline meeting between B.C. and Alberta premiers short, but not sweet Tom Fletcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark’s meeting with Alberta Premier Alison Redford Monday lasted only 15 minutes, and didn’t resolve any of their differences about the Enbridge heavy oil pipeline proposal. Clark spoke by phone with reporters after what she described as a “frosty and quite short” meeting with Redford in Calgary. She said she reiterated her government’s five conditions for supporting the Northern Gateway pipeline, including one about B.C. needing a “fair share” of benefits from the line.

Stream still hiring

The other four conditions are for the project to pass a federal environmental review, and for “world leading” spill response on land and on water, as well as meeting legal requirements for aboriginal and treaty rights along the route from northern Alberta to Kitimat. Redford told reporters in Calgary after the meeting that she reiterated her position that giving up any of Alberta’s oil royalties is “a non-starter.” She said she asked Clark to propose other ways that B.C. could increase benefits, but Clark offered no response. “I gave her the opportunity, more than once in the meeting, to say that royalties aren’t on the

table, and she didn’t take that,” Redford said. Clark said it’s not her job to find ways of increasing benefits to B.C. “It is up to whoever is going to benefit from this project to come forward and advocate for it. In my view, that’s her,” Clark said. “I said to her today, as it stands right now, there is absolutely no way that British Columbia will support this proposal.” As Clark was preparing for her meeting, B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake told a Kamloops radio station that benefits for B.C. could mean more value-added jobs, such as refining the oil.

Perspectives

Teaching our children to find strength through their adversity What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. If life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Look for the silver lining.  Do you recall admonitions like these in growing

up? Although there is the danger this philosophy might lead to denial and repression of feelings, it also reminds us to look to what we might gain through the

challenges of life. This column has recently examined a new trend in psychology,  to study happiness and functionality instead of sadness and dysfunc-

tion. The man commonly identified with this focus is psychologist Martin Seligman. Seligman  worked with the United States Army on a program called

Comprehensive Soldier Fitness. The program has five modules; emotional fitness, family fitness, social fitness, spiritual fitness and post traumatic growth.

The first four modules are elective, but post traumatic growth is considered essential and therefore required. All non commissioned officers are to receive it and then be able to teach it to their troops, it’s considered that important.   Surprisingly, Seligman reports that 61 per cent of airmen imprisoned by the North Vietnamese and tortured for years said they benefitted psychologically from the ordeal.  Curious too was that the more severely they were treated the greater their post traumatic growth.       While not all good learning comes from struggle, it is true that most of us are not naturally profound.  Events of life that shake us and force us to confront our mortality or limitations often lead  to deeper reflection and meaning.  Seligman says the essential elements of post traumatic growth are a renewed appreciation of being alive, enhanced personal strength, acting on new possibilities, improved relationships and spiritual deepening. Here’s a definition of trauma to consider; anything that is sudden, unexpected and causes you to feel helpless.  Thinking of this definition, you can see that most people will experience multiple traumatic experiences through their life time. Few get through unscathed.  The question is; are we mentally prepared for post traumatic growth?  Applied to child rearing there are some important lessons for parents.  Remember the tale of the bird’s egg.  It is the struggle to break out of the shell that prepares the wings for flight.  Sometimes in protecting our children

from struggle, ironically, we handicap them by stunting their ability to cope with adversity. So, here are a few tips for parents to consider in building resiliency. • Don’t overstep your child’s ability Rob to solve Lees their own problems. • Offer empathy and support never judgment or shame. • Validate the times when they demonstrate strength of character • Remind them that although we may feel helpless, we have the power to choose how we will respond. • Talk about famous people who demonstrate character through adversity.  Every child should know the story of Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Terry Fox, and Martin Luther King Jr. • Talk about ordinary people they might know who demonstrated strength through adversity. • Instill coping cognitions like there’s no problem so big you can’t solve it; success is about how you handle the tough times. • Because many early traumas will be related to social interactions, such as bullying, remind them that bullies are simply people who issue invitations to having courage and to mastering primitive urges of fear and retaliation.  It’s hard to do, but people who do this eventually change the world for the good.             Dr. Rob Lees is the community psychologist for the Ministry for Children and Family Development in Chilliwack.

Number 14 bus stops in Chilliwack

It’s being called one of B.C.’s greatest theatrical success stories. The Number 14 is a satirical play with fantastic masks and comedic stunts set aboard a city bus as it rolls through the streets of Vancouver. The play is celebrating its 20th anniversar y with an international tour, stopping in Chilliwack on Oct. 12 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Six talented actors swing, sing and talk their way in and out of adventures on the bus, playing a whopping 60 different characters. It’s been described as part Monty Python and part Mr. Bean style, reflecting the social diversity on public transit as it picks up a bizarre cross-section of riders along the way: old and young, rich and poor, annoying and the annoyed. The play is the brainchild of founding artistic director Wayne Specht and Roy Surette, and The Number 14 has played more than 1,000 times on four continents since its premiere by Axis and Touchstone theatres in 1992. The whole concept turns an ordinary bus route into a crazy, wild and hilarious adventure. Nancy Bryant’s eccentric costumes and wigs are a visual treat. In the hands of director Specht, every character presents as unique, carefully defined, and incredibly funny. From five twitching, mumbling, unbearably funny old folks who morph into manic kindergarten kids on a field trip, to a brilliant pop-eyed mask watching a realtor get dressed on the bus while making a deal on her cell phone, this show is hysterical. Sitting in a seat becomes a dance, silence shifts into music as six actors transform into different characters, the audience is transported - taken for a ride on The Number 14. Don’t Miss the Bus! The Number 14, at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on October 12 at 7:30 p.m.

Aladdin: The Secret Voyage, plays the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on October 7.

The Secret Voyage of Aladdin comes to the Cultural Centre Full of costumes and fantastic puppets, children of Chilliwack will be drawn into the entertaining story about a boy whose father left on a voyage to find an enchanted kingdom and was entranced by a witch. Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society presents Aladdin: The Secret Voyage, on Oct. 7 with two one-hour performances on Sunday afternoon. It’s the first show in the

Kids Series, and Story Theatre Company once again has created a performance full of warmth and humour with this classic story retold for today’s audience. Blending tales from The Arabian Nights, the story brings together Aladdin and his Lamp as he embarks on an odyssey to rescue his father. There’s an enchanted island, a powerful sea witch, and a

magic carpet, which makes things magically captivating. This kid-friendly production is funny, flashy and colourful, all things that young kids are drawn to. The actors are having just as much fun as the audience, and it shows, as the troupe creates an energetic and fun filled show. It uses a combination of music and interactive games, to tell the story of Aladdin The

actors work in tandem to pace the show in a way that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. Aladdin: The Secret Voyage, performing at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on October 7 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets are only $10 for a show children will love.

It will run Oct. 26 and Oct. 27 and includes an Oktoberfest-style dance. The festival was created to showcase B.C. craft breweries, during Craft Beer Month in B.C. This area is rich with beermaking history, as hops were the main industry for about 60 years. At the height of the local hopgrowing industry, about 300 acres were planted with hops. The Friday night feature will be Cask Night in the St. Alice Hall, featuring three local breweries offering a cask of their finest unique brew in a friendly competition of which cask is finished first. This event runs from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. The Beer Festival will be held on Saturday in the St. Alice Hall, featuring even more of B.C.’s top brewers. That event runs from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Then at 8 p.m., the St. Alice Hall will be the site of the Oktoberfest dance. Costs vary for each event and tickets can be purchased online for each event individually or as a package. Tickets can also be purchased from the Harrison Hot Springs Visitor Centre or by calling 604 796 5581. If an event is not sold out there will be the possibility of buying tickets at the door. The Harrison Beer Festival is organized by Tourism Harrison with the support of a number of key partners including the Village of Harrison Hot Springs, the Harrison Agassiz Chamber of Commerce, Agassiz Harrison Museum and Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa.

Chilliwack children get ‘rabbit ready’ for fire emergencies The Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC) along with the Chilliwack Fire Department and fire departments across the country, have introduced a new tool to help kids and families be better prepared in case of fire: cute and fuzzy bunny rabbits. “Have Two Ways Out” is this year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week, which runs October 7 – 13. The theme builds on rabbits’ instinct to always have at least two exits from their underground homes leading to safety. Fire Chief Stephen Gamble, president of the CAFC, says families who create and practise an escape plan together, with two ways out of every room if possible, have a better chance of escaping during a real fire emergency. “An escape plan helps

families respond more quickly and calmly when faced with a real fire situation,” Chief

Gamble says. “When a smoke alarm sounds, everyone needs to know what to do and where to

go. Planning two ways out of each room, ahead of time, greatly increases your chances of getting out without injury.” The effort extends through the entire month of October featuring a special web site www.safeathome. ca/twowaysout where families can print out a free home escape plan template. They can also watch for it in the “Have Two Ways Out” homework package which the CAFC designed to help parents, teachers and kids work hand in hand. Families who register the completion of their plan on line are rewarded with a “Have Two Ways Out” Certificate and the chance to win over $10,000 in prizes including Kidde Escape Ladders, Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms. Carol Heller is a home fire safety specialist with Kidde Canada, recognized as the largest smoke and carbon monoxide alarm company in Canada—and a major partner in the CAFC’s annual Fire Prevention Week campaign. Heller says two more factors are important for families to consider to avoid fire tragedy. “If a false alarm has caused you to take the batteries out of your smoke alarm, or remove it from the ceiling, it won’t be there when you need it most,” she says. “So when your kids come home from school excited to create an escape plan, also make sure smoke alarms are installed and working on every storey of your home.” Heller adds, “Remember that smoke alarms wear out. Replace them every 10 years whether they are battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system.” Fire Departments play a major part in the safety campaign’s success, building on their established school programs of working handin-hand with youngsters and educators. A free home escape plan template and more family fire safety tips can be found online at the campaign website www. safeathome.ca/twowaysout.

Only a working smoke alarm can save your life! Fire Prevention Week oct. 7-14

Smoke alarms save lives “Fall back” to smart home safety As most Canadians turn back the clocks on November 4, here are some timely smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) safety tips: • When you change your clocks, test your smoke arlam. • You have less than three minutes to escape a fire. So when smoke alarms sound, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Having and practising an escape plan is essential. • Install one smoke alarm on every storey and outside bedrooms. Install inside bedrooms if you sleep with doors closed. • Ensure all smoke alarms are fully powered. Never take out batteries or remove an alarm from ceiling due to a false alarm. • If your home has any fuel-burning devices such as a gas furnace, gas water heater, gas appliances, or an attached garage or carport, install at least one CSAapproved carbon monoxide outside all sleeping areas. One per storey is recommended.

• Replace smoke alarms every 10 years, and CO alarms every 7-10 years (depending on manufacturer) whether battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless. So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect its presence. Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not installed a CO alarm. In addition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure mimic the flu, without the fever. It is routinely responsible for thousands of clinic and hospital visits each year, and is commonly misdiagnosed. Prolonged or extreme exposure causes nausea, dizziness, confusion, the loss of physical mobility, brain damage and ultimately, death. More home safety resources can be found on the www. safeathome.ca web site.

Analysis was undertaken on almost 50,000 fires that occurred in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario over a 5-year period involving 663 fatalities. The findings demonstrated that the death rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a present, functioning smoke alarm was 74% greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present.

Thanksgiving turkey fires cause for concern at 9-1-1 centre E -Comm’s fire dispatch team is warning families to be mindful of their turkey cooking during Thanksgiving weekend. “A turkey isn’t something you typically see on a list of household fire hazards, but we get 9-1-1 calls about ovens going up in flames all the time,” says Corey Kelso, E-Comm fire dispatcher. “The result can be devastating if you’re not careful every time you have something cooking for an extended period of time.”

E-Comm has received some odd calls to 9-1-1 before – including someone wanting to know how long to cook a turkey – but a turkey fire is no joke. In fact, it is a leading cause of spikes in 9-1-1 calls over the holidays. “A flame in your oven can start easily and escalate quickly,” says Kelso. “Oil drippings through a thin tinfoil turkey pan or bits of leftover food residue inside your oven are extremely flammable in a high temperature setting.”

Many fatal fires start at night Insure your home and make sure you and your family are protected.

Investigations into home fire deaths very often find that a smoke alarm did not sound. It may have been disconnected or not in working order. The batteries may have been dead, or someone may have taken them out. Smoke alone won’t necessarily wake you up. In fact, the fumes could put you into an even deeper sleep. Often, victims never wake up. Se-

niors will often need assistance from family members to put safety measures into place. As well, family members are in the best position to reinforce the precautions necessary to help their loved ones prevent or respond to a fire. Focus on these six priorities to help aging family members protect themselves against fire in the home.

■ INSTALL smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. ■ Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection. ■ For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound. ■ An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended. ■ Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance. ■ REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.

their eight-month journey. During that time, they will volunteer at various schools, orphanages and community projects. They have planned out the trip themselves and made arrangements to participate in the volunteer projects in each of the countries.  To date, they have collected about $9,000 through golf tournament and donut sales, as well as about $3,000 through donations.  They are asking for the public’s support to raise the remaining amount of about $5,000. Some of the funds will support the people and/or projects with which they are working. The pair met as students at University of the Fraser Valley, where both earned their bachelor’s degrees in geography. Loewen also has a diploma in early childhood education.  For more information about their trip or to make a donation, visit rachaelandjocelyn. blogspot.ca, send an email to jocelynandrachael@hotmail.com or visit “Jocelyn and Rachael’s Missions Trip” on Facebook.

Looser festival booze backed Despite concern from some delegates, UBCM agreed to back a liquor licensing reform that would let adults drink in the presence of minors at music festivals and certain other special events. The Whistlersponsored resolution aims to let families enjoy an event together, rather than forcing patrons who want alcohol into a segregated, enclosed beer garden. Some opponents said B.C. should be moving away from the culture of alcohol at entertainment events, not reinforcing it. ~ Black Press

Fitness Lower your risk of high blood pressure: another reason to get active igh blood presH sure (hypertension) affects one

in five Canadians . Having high blood pressure increases the chances of having a heart attack, stroke and kidney failure. Often called the ‘silent killer’, you can have high blood pressure and not show any symptoms. With age, the risk of developing high blood pressure increases. Blood pressure is the measure of pressure of the blood against the artery walls. The top number (systolic) is the presents pressure when the heart contracts and blood is pushed out of the heart and into the arteries. The bottom

number (diastolic) is a measurement of the blood pressure when the heart relaxes. Ideally, blood pressure should be less than 120/80 mm Hg at rest. Tanja Blood Shaw pressure that is consistently above than 140/90 mm Hg at rest is conpresents sidered high. If you have diabetes, blood pressure above 130/80 mm Hg is considered high1. Fortunately, leading a healthy lifestyle can help control your

high blood pressure, or decrease the likelihood of developing high blood pressure. Reducing dietary fat, and eating more fruit and vegetables can drop systolic blood pressure (the top number) by 8-14 points. Limiting sodium and alcohol in the diet can further reduce blood pres-

sure. Exercise can also help control high blood pressure. Daily exercise can lower systolic blood pressure by 4-9 points. The exercise does not have to be strenuous to get results- regular light to moderate exercise has shown to positively affect blood pressure.

Exercise also helps to lose or maintain your body weight. A 20 pound drop in weight (providing you are overweight to start) can drop you blood pressure 5-20 points2. During exercise, the heart pumps harder, causing blood pressure to elevate. Because of this effect,

it is important to talk to your doctor before beginning an exercise program. Your doctor will also tell you how any medications you may be taking are affected by exercise. For example, beta blockers will affect your heart rate response to exercise. Lifestyle changes may decrease your

need for medication. However, it is imperative that you never stop taking your medication, or change your dosage without your doctor’s recommendation. Once you have the go ahead from your doctor, it is best to slowly ease into an exercise program. Continued: Control/ p36 Advertising Feature

Start with low intensity exercises such as walking, or light swimming. As your fitness level increases, you can slowly start working harder. Every exercise session should start with a 5-10 minute warm-up to allow your heart rate to slowly increase, and end with a 5-10 minute cool down to let your heart return back to a resting state. Strength training is another option for exercise. Start with one set of 10-15 repetitions of each exercise. Ensure that you don’t hold your breath during any exercise. Seated and standing exercises are best as some floor exercises can temporarily increase your blood pressure. A qualified fitness professional can create an exercise program to meet your needs. Now is the time to start taking steps to lead a heart-healthy life. You are never too young or too old to make positive lifestyle changes.

kind of feeds into the Atlantic Ocean,” Esposito explained. “You get the suburbstyle living, but you’re also close enough to go into New York City for Ranger games.” What it doesn’t have is the outdoorsman potential that Chilliwack has. Esposito came a long, long, long way to play hockey, but he’s also discovered other benefits to life in the ‘Wack. “Plevy and I, and a few of the other guys, have been fishing a fair bit,” Esposito said. “The Vedder River is right behind my house, and we’ve seen quite a bit of salmon and trout. We haven’t gotten lucky yet, but it’s a nice way to relax and take your mind of the game.”

Esposito angles for bass back home in Greenwich, and considers himself a pretty good fisherman. He’s plucked a few eight pounders from a reservoir back home. As relaxing as fishing on the Vedder might be, he would like to catch something. “Hockey players are competitive, so yeah, we’d love to catch one and we’d probably go running around the banks of the river if we actually did,” Esposito laughed. “We had a few bites yesterday, but we couldn’t get anything in. We saw them jumping, and we’re just wondering what we’re doing wrong.” When they’re out, they get looks from the Vedder River veterans,

the longtime fishermen who know how to snag the salmon. “Two days ago, we saw them bring in a really big salmon, so they do exist,” Esposito said. “We asked them what they’re using for bait and they said they’re using exactly what we’re using. I thought they were lying, but they weren’t. I looked.” Being thousands of miles from home can be tough, and fishing serves as a welcome distraction. Hockey takes up a ton of time too, but there are moments when Esposito starts to miss his family and friends. “I just graduated high school and all my friends have gone on to different colleges and stuff,” Esposito said. “They’ll

all be together, hanging out on the American Thanksgiving, and I’ll probably be the only one not home. But it’s a sacrifice I’m making to try and get to the next level and something I knew I was getting into.” It helps having a whole new group of friends within the Chiefs locker room, even if there are some crossborder disputes. “The way we pronounce certain words, the Americans go at it with the Canadians over that,” Esposito laughed. “We throw it right back at them with the eh’s and the aboot’s.” Back on the ice, Esposito feels he’s getting better with every passing game, and it’s backed up by the stats. Through the first five

games, he was leading the team in scoring with one goal and five points. “I think I’ve got a pretty decent passing touch, and people would say I’m a pass-first kind of guy,” Esposito said. “The goal right now is to get more shots on net and hope that something goes in. It is an adjustment coming from prep school, but we had meetings with the coaches recently, and I just expressed how happy I am to be here.” As long as he keeps putting pucks in the net and helping others do the same, the Chiefs will be more than happy to have him.

Final round

After 52 years, the Aquadel Golf Course closes its doors for good Monday, and owners Dick and Wendy Whitlam hope to make the last day memorable. A family friend of the Whitlams, Susan Bohonos, was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. In July, she underwent surgery to remove the tumor. The surgery left he with 20 per cent of her pancreas, and she now faces months of chemotherapy. The most effective type of chemo is not covered by BC Health Care, and she must pay for it out-ofpocket. To help Susan and her family (husband Clint and sons Reese and Nash) deal with the financial difficulty, the Whitlams will be accepting donations on Aquadel’s last day. “Susan continues to keep a smile on her face and a very positive attitude throughout her journey to recovery,” the Whitlams wrote in a letter. “This medication is the only viable option for Susan to stay cancer free.” In addition to any donations, all green fees on Thanksgiving Monday will be donated to the Bohonos family. The Whitlams hope to see many of the friends they’ve made running the par-three course in Lindell Beach. “We have enjoyed knowing you and serving you,” they wrote. “We have loved your stories and your many kind words. There is no doubt Aquadel has been a special place in the hearts of many people.” To book a Monday tee time, call 604-858-6896.

Tough Decision, yet a Wise Choice! Death is a fact of life. When we die, someone will be responsible for our final wishes. It is not an easy task and most people struggle with the difficult decision making. Fortunately, we have the solution for you and your loved ones. Prearranging your own funeral is a wise and responsible decision. Planning ahead gives you and your family peace of mind, and most importantly, will make things easier for loved ones in their time of grief. By prearranging your funeral you can choose the type of service you want at a cost you can afford. On your death, your family does not have to worry about second-guessing your wishes or paying for a funeral at an emotional time - everything is taken care of. At Dignity Memorial we work with you to plan a service filled with personalized details. From time-honoured traditions to personal photographs, favourite readings and special songs, you can design the service to be a unique reflection of your life. We would like to introduce two new products that can help alleviate the financial burden of a funeral. For example, prearranging for someone age 50 years can cost as little as $16 per month. For someone age 60 years it can cost as little as $19 per month. These plans are affordable and they will relieve the financial burden on the family while freezing escalating funeral costs. To help you begin, we are offering a complimentary Dignity Memorial Personal Planning Guide. In addition, we will extend a 12% savings on the HST for entrusting us with your funeral prearrangements. This will be in effect until November 30, 2012. To receive a copy of the guide please contact Victory Memorial Park and Funeral Centre.
