HOPE WINS FOUR BLOOM AWARD Community recognized at national level for its plants and carvings




Construction crews work on the foundation of a new structure on the Pilot Flying J truck stop site Monday afternoon. The district has approved all building permits required to complete the project, which is located on a 3.1-acre property on Flood-Hope Road near exit 168 off Highway 1. The truck stop will feature a gas station, card-lock commercial access diesel refueling facility, Denny’s restaurant, convenience store, showers and laundry area for truck drivers. The district has also tendered the Flood-Hope sewer project, which is set to complete by March 31, but staff are waiting for confirmation on additional grant funding prior to awarding the construction contract.

Taxpayers will be footing part of the bill for improvements to the community recreation park. The district received a $370,575 grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development earlier this year for the initiative. However, the total project cost is estimated at $463,300, which means residents will be covering the $92,575 shortfall. “The district, in conjunction with other community groups, wishes to improve the quality of life and promote healthy living,” said chief ad-

ministrative officer John Fortoloczky. “This means utilizing and improving parks to allow their optimum use for recreation and sport. The community recreation park does need improvement if we are to encourage various stakeholder/ community groups and individuals to increase their usage of the space and facilities.” R.F. Binnie & Associates Ltd. has been awarded the $49,162.88 contract for planning, detailed design, and preparation for tender of the improvements. This work is expected to begin before the end of October.

The project adds a new bike skills park to the area and improve the existing skatepark. The Sports Bowl will also receive upgrades to the stairs, walkways, seating and fencing to make it safer for event spectators. In addition, a walking trail with a picnic area will be constructed in the woods adjacent to the Sports Bowl and skatepark, and link to existing trail networks, creating a connection from Kawkawa Lake to the recreation centre. Hope Motorsports Group acquired 1,500 donated no post guard rails earlier this year to reinforce the terraced seating area and increase spectator capacity at the

Sports Bowl. The district has committed to using the guard rails in the project design. “The community will have input throughout the process. Their feedback is a key aspect of the whole project,” said Fortoloczky. “They will be asked what they desire of various aspects of the park and what improvements should be made. They will then be consulted on design proposals resulting from their earlier input.” The design and tender documents for improvements are expected next spring, which will allow construction to begin sometime in 2013.

Laurie Throness is looking forward to winning the BC Liberal nomination in ChilliwackHope and taking on NDP MLA Gwen O’Mahony one more time. O’Mahony won an April byelection that moved the riding into the NDP camp for the first time in decades. But Throness believes the NDP victory was due only to the split in the conservative vote as the upstart BC Conservative Party took votes away from the BC Liberals. “The people of Chilliwack-

Hope voted strategically to send a message to the government, and I think they will send a message again ... that they don’t want an NDP government,” he said. Throness believes voters in Chilliwack-Hope will return to the BC Liberals in the provincial election, just like his former byelection rival John Martin. Martin has now quit the BC Conservatives and is running as the BC Liberal candidate in the Chilliwack riding to replace retiring MLA John Les. In the byelection, the public expressed its mood by voting for the BC Conservatives, but Throness said he sees a change

in that mood as the party is torn with internal struggles. Which can only be good news for the BC Liberals. Throness said if he wins the BC Liberal nomination, he’s eager to get back on the campaign trail and stand by the BC Liberal government’s financial record. “It’s a government that deserves to be re-elected,” he said. “It’s going to be an epochal action,” he said about the upcoming election. “I’m looking forward to it.” No date has been set for the nomination meeting, but Throness said his candidate application was accepted by the party on Oct. 4.

The man, who was not driving his own vehicle at the time, was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital. Manj said the crash remains under police investigation.

The Creative Centre Society is giving people living with mental illness an opportunity to showcase their stand-up comedy skills in the Fraser Canyon. The Laugh or Die tour features eight to 10 comics performing their own original material, which covers a range of topics including mental health. “The idea is to reach out and tell people there is hope for recovery,” said Rob Dueck, a mental health worker who is coordinating the tour.

“You can thrive, even though you have been diagnosed with something that would be considered quite severe. One of our best comics has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.” The Creative Centre Society is a nonprofit organization with clubhouses in Chilliwack and Abbotsford. It provides rehabilitation and recovery based programs and services to people with a severe and persistent mental illness.

Jesse Blue West told an undercover police officer posing as the boss of a crime ring that he killed 14-year-old Chelsey Acorn in 2005 to protect his son, who had “forced himself” on the teen. “I turned around to him, and said, ‘I can bury the problem,’” West said to the “crime boss” in video footage recorded as part of a “Mr. Big” undercover police sting. The 2 1/2-hour footage was shown last Tuesday at West’s first-degree murder trial in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack. Video cameras had been hidden in a Calgary hotel room on March 10, 2007 during West’s meeting with a man he thought was the boss of a lucrative criminal organization. West, now 61, had been working for the fake operation – run by undercover officers posing as members of the group – for several weeks prior to the meeting, and believed the boss wanted to talk with him before permitting his involvement in an upcoming “big score.” In the footage, the “boss” told West that, although West had come with a high recommendation from one of the crew, he had heard rumors about his possible involvement in Acorn’s murder. “There are concerns. There are loose ends and there is DNA,” the boss said. “Well, they don’t have my DNA,” West said later in the conversation. Through the course of the meeting, West revealed in matter-of-fact detail the circumstances of Acorn’s murder. West, a long-haul trucker, said he had returned to his home in Surrey from a trucking job to find tension between his 19-year-old son, Dustin Moir of Abbotsford, and Acorn, whom Moir had been dating for about two weeks. The pair had been temporarily staying at West’s residence. West said Moir had either “forced himself on her or got her drunk,” and he was worried that Acorn would report the incident to police. West told Moir that he knew of a spot

where they could dig a hole and nobody would ever know what happened. The following day, the trio drove from Surrey to a wooded area off the Coquihalla Highway, near the Carolin Mines exit outside of Hope. While Moir and Acorn went for a walk, he dug a five-foot-deep hole, West told the crime boss. The couple returned to the area and Moir laid out a blanket, upon which the pair became intimate and he removed her clothes. Moir walked away to have a cigarette and West said he approached Acorn from behind, wrapped his right arm around her neck in a headlock, tilted her head back and “gave it a good squeeze.” According to West, Moir returned to the scene and dumped Acorn’s naked body in the hole. West said he then threw a layer of rocks into the hole, followed by about three feet of dirt. He said he placed about eight large rocks on the top, which he thought would keep animals from digging up the body. West told the crime boss that he left no evidence behind. He disposed of Acorn’s clothes in a dumpster in another city, and threw into the ocean the shovel used to dig the hole, as well as a machete used to cut down branches. He got rid of his car at the scrapyard. West said he also hired two women to thoroughly clean his residence, including scrubbing the walls, so that none of Acorn’s DNA evidence was left behind. Later in the footage, during further questioning by the crime boss, West said he slit the throat of a man in Ontario in the early 1970s over a drug debt, and buried the man’s body in a gravel quarry. He provided the victim’s name, but investigators later proved that the man was still living at the time of the confession. Acorn was reported missing from an Abbotsford foster home in June 2005, and her body was found by hikers in April 2006. Moir was charged as part of the same “Mr. Big” operation and received a life sentence in February 2010 with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Fire danger rating drops

Buy a coffee, get a coffee

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Several days of rain have dropped the fire danger rating in the area to “very low.” The wet weather is a welcome sight for the Coastal Fire Centre, which has been busy dealing with the consequences of an abnormally dry start to fall. “All of the fires that we’ve had in the last month and a half has made up for the lack at the beginning,” said fire information officer Donna MacPherson. “A lot of fire danger ratings have been breaking records. We’ve been finding that any fires that we have had, the crews have had to dig down to extinguish the burning material.” A crew was called out to Squeah Forest Service Road last Wednesday to tackle a fire that started 20 metres up a cliff bluff. MacPherson said there was smoke on the ground with a little bit of open flame, mostly in moss.


A helicopter drops a bucket of water on a fire on Squeah Forest Service Road last Wednesday. The fire danger rating in the area has dropped to “very low.”

A helicopter bucketed water to help extinguish the fire quickly. “There was someone in the area that did something they shouldn’t have done,” she said. “There’s still pockets that are bone dry. Everybody still needs

to be aware of the fact it’s going to take a bit of time for all of the forest to get wet. If people go and have campfire, make sure you put it out completely and make sure you situate it well - don’t put it near logs.”

Crash sends couple to hospital A serious motorcycle crash on the Hope-Princeton Highway sent a visiting Ontario couple to hospital. The 55-year-old man and his 52-year-old wife were negotiating a left curve westbound on Highway 3 approximately 40 kilometers east of Hope, when the driver lost control of his 2012

Harley Davidson on loose gravel at about 3:40 p.m. on Oct. 9. The highway was closed for a short period while the couple was airlifted to a local area hospital, where both were expected to make a full recovery. Police said speed and alcohol were not factors in the crash. “The temperature at higher

elevations is changing from hour to hour these days,” said Cpl. Robert Mc Donald of the Lower Mainland Traffic Services. “Highway crews are working hard to keep the highway safe by using sand and gravel to increase traction at higher elevations.”

Documentary explores oil industry

Christ Church is screening the award-winning documentary “White Water, Black Gold” this Saturday. The film follows David Lavallee on his three-year journey across western Canada in search of answers about the activities of the world’s thirstiest oil industry: the Tarsands. As a mountaineer and hiking guide, Lavallee is on the front lines of climate change. Over the past 15 years he has worked in the Columbia Icefields of the Canadian Rockies, and has noticed profound changes in the mountains. When he discovers that his province is ramping up growth in an extremely water intensive industry downstream of the icefields, he embarks on a journey to learn more about oilfields. Lavallee makes many discoveries: new science

shows that water resources in an era of climate change will be increasingly scarce (putting this industry at risk); First Nations people living downstream are contracting bizarre cancers; the upgrading of this oil threatens multiple river systems across Canada and the tailings ponds containing the waste by-products of the process threaten to befoul the third largest watershed in the world. Additionally, a planned pipeline across British Columbia brings fresh threats to B.C. Rivers and the Pacific Ocean. “White Water, Black Gold” looks at the untold costs (to water and people) associated with developing the second largest deposit of “oil” in the world. The screening on Oct. 20 starts at 7 p.m. in the church hall. There is no admission charge, although donations will be accepted. Refreshments and informative materials will also be available.

A welcome defeat

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

At least one of the election gag laws has been thrown out. The B.C. Court of Appeal has decided that an attempt by the provincial government to control free speech in the period before a provincial election isn’t constitutional. This after the government tried several times to restrict how much money third parties can spend in the 60-day window before an election campaign officially begins. An attempt by Victoria to cut that down to 40 days didn’t work either. Governments and political parties have interfered in the election process far too much. Elections are not the property of politicians — they are the property of citizens. They are the one chance that citizens have to determine who is in power, what policies will be brought in and what changes can be worked towards. Yet at the federal and provincial level, election spending has been restricted for years. Not only are individual candidates restricted in their spending, which does at least level the playing field a bit, but individuals, businesses, unions and interest groups have severe restrictions on how much they can spend to send messages to voters. This is what the province was trying to do in the pre-election period — mainly to cut off messages from antigovernment groups. The BC Liberals were aiming at the B.C. Government Employees Union and the B.C. Teachers Federation, who ran pungent antigovernment messages before the 2009 election officially began. Individuals, organizations and businesses should have every right to spend money before and during campaigns. Much is being said at present about the 25th anniversary of free trade. The 1988 federal election was fought on that issue. During it, both pro- and antifree trade organizations spent a lot of money to get their messages out. It was a hard-fought election, on one big issue, and the additional messages from all the third parties were an integral part of the debate. It’s good that the Court of Appeal has struck down restrictions during the pre-election period. It would be nice if a court would strike down the restrictions which apply during federal and provincial elections as well. The only purpose they serve is to keep the election process dominated by political parties, and to severely restrict the rights of citizens during what should be a free-ranging debate. - Black Press

Fantasies won’t keep ferries afloat

B.C. Views

Tom Fletcher It was a sunny Thanksgiving weekend when I took my first all-transit trip from Victoria to Vancouver for a B.C. Lions football game. Despite all the doomsaying about people shunning ferries because of some media-determined “tipping point” in fares, you wouldn’t have guessed it that weekend. Articulated buses were jammed coming and going from the Tsawwassen terminal to the Canada Line. Returning to Vancouver Island on Sunday, I was struck by the crowds, and the low cost: SkyTrain, express bus, walk-on passenger fare and express bus to Victoria totalled  about  $20.  This explains the surge in walk-on traffic.

ing first that Tsawwassen’s parking lot and then Swartz Bay’s were full. The Tsawwassen First Nation’s shuttle parking next door was overflowing, with cars tucked into every level space. And even with hourly sailings, the major route had plenty of vehicle traffic, with all available vessels running. Now the long, late summer is gone, and the political theatre resumes. Transportation Minister Mary Polak picked up where the retiring Blair Lekstrom left off, reminding people that BC Ferries is going to deal with rising costs primarily by ceasing the practice of running vessels a third full or less. This comes as “consultation” begins with smaller ferry communities on where and when these sailings will be cut. And it follows the first major price-cap decision by the newly empowered B.C. Ferry Commissioner, Gord Macatee. He now can determine service levels as well as fares,

cially illiterate cliché somehow deals with the fact that even a subsidy approaching $200 million this year can’t keep  all those boats afloat forever. A family of four on a long driving trip faces similar price increases, when you factor in tolls, insurance, food and other costs beyond the fuel tank. But for some reason the “government” is supposed to provide special relief to those who choose the most inaccessible places to live. Coons’ latest tack is that BC Ferries has lost its way, trying to be a fancy cruise ship service instead of giving people basic transportation at an affordable price. That would be terrible if it were true. But those amenities on newer vessels are there because they make money, utilizing staff who have to be on board anyway. As everyone but the NDP seems to grasp, the big costs are fuel, maintenance, and minimum crew levels to meet federal regula-

tions, regardless of passenger revenue. I was reminded on the last busy weekend of the year that the new Coastal-class ferries kept vehicle capacity the same while increasing passenger space. This choice anticipated today’s travel reality nearly a decade ago. Good thing somebody was able to understand ferries as a business, as opposed to a welfare program for the reclusive and the rich. BC Ferries has already cut sailings on the Tsawwassen-Duke point route. As described in an earlier column, this needlessly long run is the biggest boondoggle in BC Ferries history, a Dave Barrett-era payoff to the union that continues today.

Fans relate to Rambo character

I think the reason why First Blood has still got a hardcore fanbase is the fact that many people can relate in some way to that of the fictional character. The character of Rambo seemed scared to the very core of his soul by what he had witnessed and had been ordered to do in the Vietnam conflict (very similar to what our guys are going through now with the up to date conflicts). The difference was that the majority of the American people at the time were not patriotic towards these young men and women who were

trying to keep freedom instilled by fighting the Communists. When the character was deemed mentally unfit to serve his country he was thrown by the wayside, so he drifted from one state to another trying to reconnect himself with his only chance of connecting with humanity, who was his old army buddies. We see Rambo in the introduction walking into shot, happy and joyful with the bright sun shining down on his face, and the sound of children playing. He then finds his last chance of staying connected to conventional

life died when his friend Delmar Berry did. As he threw that brown address book away, it signified him casting away any domestic values that he did have. Wandering aimlessly we see him walk into Hope with a pensive look on his face, almost as though he was in a semiautistic state. As he walks into the town’s border, the sky is very dark and gloomy, again it’s now a reflection of the movie characters state of mind. That is why First Blood could only have been shot in Hope, the beautiful backdrop with the moun-

tains, but at the same time kind of intimidating with the surrounding mountains – a little like how Teasle was trying to bully and intimidate the Rambo character. I joined Norfolk Constabulary Police Force for four years. I left three years ago now, but because of the Rambo character not giving up, I fought hard to get into the police service, which is the hardest force to join within the UK. So that is another positive knock-on effect that this movie has had on me. Regan Greenard, United Kingdom

Celebrating small business in Hope

This week marks small business week in B.C., a time when we acknowledge the contributions of small businesses towards community. Small businesses make up 98 per cent of businesses registered in B.C. and contribute roughly 33 per cent of B.C.’s GDP. This Thursday, we celebrate the local community by acknowledging some of the best businesses Hope has to offer through the Business Excellence Awards. Some-

times in a big box society, we forget that the only people in retail chains that get rich are the shareholders. Absolutely the majority of big box chains fund worthy causes like breast cancer awareness, literacy programs, and help fund associations that help in Third World countries. However the businesses you see on main street fund the programs in your community. The small business community works hard to bring local knowledge

to their businesses. Here’s the problem that small businesses are facing – retail drift. Consumers end up leaving smaller communities for larger ones to do their shopping. And when they arrive at a larger community they invariably go to the big box store. Who can blame them, its convenient. The prices are lower because of the corporation’s huge buying power, and it’s a one stop shop. My family and I do it ourselves. The Hope and District

Successful local fundraiser

I would like to thank the many people and businesses that contributed to the fundraiser for Cory Legere (husband of Cori Hansen) at the Goldrush Pub on the weekend of Sept. 29. It was a huge success and it was great to see the support from all who attended and those who couldn’t. It is comforting to know how friends, businesses and family members pull together in a time of need like this.

Among the many hard workers, I would like to give extra thanks and appreciation to Carla Hahn, and Justin and Lara from the Goldrush Pub. You guys rock! Thank you Hope! I would like to extend a special thank you to Ryder and its many caring members. It is comforting to know that Cory has the support of this great company behind him. Thank you Ryder!

Chamber of Commerce has embarked on a Do Your BIT campaign, Buy In Town.

B.C. election spending limits rejected again

Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Court of Appeal has rejected a second attempt by the B.C. Liberal government to restrict third-party election advertising before the next provincial election. In a recent ruling, the threejudge panel unanimously concluded that extending restrictions for 40 days before the formal 28-day election campaign is still an undue infringement on freedom of expression. An earlier restriction, extending 60 days before the 2009 election campaign, was struck down after a group of public sector unions challenged it in court. Attorney General Shirley Bond said the government will not appeal the latest ruling or attempt new restrictions in advance of the May 14, 2013 vote.

Bond said the latest legislation met some of the court’s tests of fairness, but the government was not able to show that third-party advertising had unduly influenced voters in B.C. She said the U.S. election system shows what can happen when unlimited spending by wealthy interest groups dominates elections. “I think the court has provided us with a very thorough analysis and clear reasons, and have concluded that any restrictions to the advertising in the pre-election period is unconstitutional,” Bond said. “We sent this case to the B.C. Court of Appeal for advice, and we are going to accept that advice.” Former attorney general Wally Oppal made the original amendments to the B.C. Elections Act in 2008, saying they

were needed to prevent election debates from being “hijacked by third parties.” The amendments limited political parties to spending $2.2 million in the 60 days before the official 28day election campaign, and advocacy groups such as unions and business groups can spend only $150,000 during that time. Oppal, his successors Mike de Jong and Bond have all argued that more restrictions are needed since B.C. went to scheduled elections every four years, which allow interest groups to time their advertising to avoid the caps imposed during a formal 28-day campaign. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation, the B.C. Nurses’ Union, the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators originally challenged the spending restrictions in court.

Hope’s business opportunities and locational advantages were recently presented to a group of curious foreign businesspeople learning about B.C.’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The downtown Vancouver meeting room was filled with potential immigrants from Iran, Mexico, Australia, China, and other countries. All those attending were interested in the opportunities that British Columbia could offer them in terms of starting a new business, buying an existing enterprise, or expanding their current operations to our province. The PNP program is very simple in its basics. A business plan or purchase is approved, and the potential investor agrees to the parameters of the investment (minimum $200,000 for our area as opposed to $400,000 for Vancouver/Abbotsford, offering us a clear advantage to start). The business-person proceeds with implementing the business plan while in B.C. on a work visa. Once it becomes clear that the proponent is abiding

province, not just in the large urban centres such as Vancouver or Kelowna. What does this database have to do with the PNP program? They are both indicators of coordinated efforts between local communities and provincial agencies to connect investment, immigrants, and ideas to the opportunities, businesses, and resources of our province. As Hope’s (and the rest of the province’s) population ages, business succession planning, internal capacity building, and home-grown opportunities will continue to form the bedrock of future growth. These foreign investment programs are the key to ensuring that the businesses, ideas, and wealth of our communities have additional source fuels of youth, capital, and innovation to continue to grow and provide vibrant economies for our residents.

Semi-truck catches fire on Highway 5 The Coquihalla Highway was shut down in both directions on Oct. 7 after a truck trailer burst into flames in the southbound lanes near Carolin Mine Road. The unit was carrying highly flammable materials and was fully engulfed when RCMP arrived

on scene at about 11 p.m. The hazardous cargo prompted an 800-metre safety radius, closing traffic in both directions for several hours.  The highways department assisted the RCMP with establishing barriers. Northbound traffic was turned


around, and southbound traffic was diverted into the northbound lanes. Police said the fire started in the truck cab as a result of a mechanical failure and spread to the trailer. There were no injuries.

Bukowski, Zbigniew (John)

May 10, 1936 - October 8, 2012 It is with great sadness to announce John's sudden peaceful passing at home on October 8th, 2012. Father to daughter Misha and son John, son-in-law to Maria and former spouse to Isabel. John will be forever loved and greatly missed by his best friend and life partner, Donna Byrn along with all his family and friends. John was born on May 10th, 1936 in Poland. At the age of 3, in 1939 his family was deported to the Soviet. Under the amnesty agreement in 1941, 389,000 Polish citizens were freed from the Soviet. He recalls his father being in the military however had no memories of his mother. John at the age of 5 without parents along with other Poles were part of the evacuation that made the long journey from the Soviet to a Polish Orphanage Camp in India. He lived in India until he was 12. In 1948 he left Bombay by ship for the U.K. as arranged by England's Red Cross. He lived at boarding schools in England then attended Lilford Technical School graduating as a Machinist. He lived and worked in London. Around 1960 he came to Canada by ship. In Montreal he got a position with Air Canada. After his first winter he decided to drive Route 66 to California. Spent some time in LA before taking the train to Vancouver. Started working in logging camps when he arrived in B.C. In 1967, he married and had two children he was most proud of and lived in Burnaby, B.C. Worked several years with Finning Tractor before starting his own business and then retired. John enjoyed playing shuffleboard. Many players called him "Golden Arm". He enjoyed times with friends at Army Navy Clubs #314, #298 and #100, RC Legion #48, #83, #228, Hope Eagles and the Firefighters Club with many years of membership. In 2009, John moved from Burnaby to Yale, B.C. He enjoyed the outdoors and gardening. Avid fan of all sports. In John's eyes, the Polish teams were always the best. A Celebration of John's Life will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 24th 2:00 pm at the Firefighters Club on 6315 Bonsor Ave., Burnaby, B.C. Donations may be made to a Children's Charity.
