Chilliwack named ‘Most Business Friendly’ Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Chillwack’s business friendly approach has earned it a prestigious award — for all the right reasons, according to Acting Mayor Jason Lum. Coun. Lum accepted the Most Business Friendly award in person on behalf of mayor, council and staff at a breakfast event Thursday morning in Vancouver, hosted by NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Association. “We beat out municipalities all across Metro Vancouver,” said the jubilant city councillor. “It was a good day for Chilliwack.” Being business friendly by design helps keep unemployment down. “Supporting job creators in our City means ensuring more jobs for the people of Chilliwack, fair and equitable taxes for businesses and residents alike, and access to fantastic amenities in our own backyard,” he told the crowd at the award breakfast. The judges cited Chilliwack’s innovative and trend-setting Industrial Revitalization Tax exemption, which provides industrial tax breaks for five years on construction projects of more than $1 million. It was part of NAIOP Vancouver Chapter’s commercial development “report card” comparing Lower Mainland cities. “It means we’re moving in the right direction,” Lum said about the award recognition. Although it’s true Chilliwack already has the reputation of being business friendly, the award reinforces that it’s for all the “right” reasons, he added. “We actively work on reducing processing times. Those are the hallmarks of understanding business. It’s about customer service.”

Strong winds blamed for plane crash Jenna Hauck The Progress

Four people walked away from a minor plane crash at the Chilliwack Airport shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday. The pilot of the Cessna 180 taildragger plane was travelling westbound when it touched down on the tarmac, but was then suddenly moved by a strong wind, pushing it into a ditch of shallow water. Chilliwack resident Chris Gadsden was travelled eastbound on Highway 1 towards Agassiz when he saw it all happen. He pulled over and called 911. “As soon as he (the pilot) touched down, I saw him turn sideways and go right into the

Sto:lo welcome home ancestral remains housed at UBC The sun broke through the clouds briefly Friday as the silver Dodge Caravan pulled into parking lot of the Sto:lo Resource Centre. It had just completed the long journey from the University of British Columbia. But the cargo it carried – 11 cedar boxes of varying sizes – had been on an even longer journey. The boxes contained the fragmented remains of 11 Sto:lo ancestors, being returned to Sto:lo territory as part of a collaborative effort by the University of British Columbia Laboratory of Archaeology (LOA), Sto:lo Nation, Sto:lo Tribal Council, Coqualeetza Cultural Education Centre, and Sts’ailes First Nation. The ancestral remains had been in the care of UBC since the 1950s. Getting them back home has taken

nearly six years, and the journey isn’t over yet. “It was more important for us to do this right than to do this quickly,” said Ch’iyaqtel First Nationmember Herb Joe, a member of the Sto:lo committee. Discussions between UBC and Sto:lo representatives began in 2006 when Dr. Sue Rowley, current director of LOA, asked Sto:lo representatives if their communities had an interest in the return of ancestral remains which had ended up in LOA’s care. Follow-up planning involved the collective effort and input of multiple Sto:lo First Nations. The Sto:lo House of Respect Caretaking Committee, a group of Sto:lo elders, cultural advisors and staff, formed to facilitate repatriation cases and issues on behalf of

the Sto:lo community, played a lead role. Said committee-member Chief Frank Malloway of Yakweakwioose First Nation: “It’s important that we take care of our ancestors ourselves, at home in our own community.” The complex, collective process leading to the repatriation  considered numerous issues including a broad-range of community-based and scientific concerns, interests, questions and protocols. A key question common to the Sto:lo community and LOA scientists alike was one of identity. Through collaboration, questions of the ancestors’ identities as individuals have begun to be addressed. An important basis of Sto:lo protocol dealing with deceased ancestors is knowing

who they are and as much about their history as possible, as members of their community – including their sex, age, health, diet, child-bearing status if female, and how long ago they lived. Numerous experts at LOA offered scientific options for answering these questions, such as physical analysis, isotopic analysis, and radiocarbon dating. All aspects of analysis were governed by the Sto:lo Committee. One of the protocols established by the Committee was that the ancestors needed to be returned home before any techniques that require the removal of small samples, such as C14 dating, could be applied. Non-destructive analyses applied to date have effectively begun to develop biographies of each individual.

Cedar bows are used to cleanse the path the ancestral remains of 11 Sto:lo are carried into the Sto:lo Recourse Centre Friday.

Local Rotarians committed to fight ‘horrible disease’ Greg Knill

The Progress It’s a disease that most of us note only once in our lives: at the time of a simple inoculation that few will even remember. And yet, when the first polio vaccine was introduced 57 years ago, it came at a time of fear and even panic. Discovered by Jonas Salk and released in 1955, the vaccine staunched the march of a disease that was as terrifying as it was deadly. Those it did not kill were left paralyzed, or their lives inexorably altered by crippling deformities. And, perhaps most cruel, the people most vulnerable were children. Fear of the disease was enough to keep playgrounds empty in the mid 1950s and children inside. Polio marked a generation, and Salk’s discovery of the vaccine launched one of the most aggressive immunization campaigns the world has ever seen. Today, most of the world is polio free. The Americas earned that designation in 1994; Europe in 2002. In only three countries does the disease remain endemic: Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan. For Chilliwack Rotarians, a world without polio is within our reach. Rotary members from around the world have been involved in the fight to eradicate polio since 1985. The battle has been difficult, says Kevin Wood, past president of the Chilliwack Rotary Club, but steady victories have been achieved. As early as 1988 there were an estimated 350,000 cases worldwide. In 2011, says Wood, there were 409. Despite the success, much work needs to be done, he says. The

Chilliwack’s Debora Soutar administers the polio vaccine to a child during her 2010 visit to Ethiopia as part of the Rotary Internationals World Polio Inoculation Day. The organization has vowed to eradicate polio around the world. Submitted

focus is not only on the three countries were polio remains, but also on ensuring it doesn’t reappear in other countries. There are several allies in the fight, Wood says. Along with Rotary International, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation stepped forward in 2009. And the United Nations, at a special meeting on Sept. 27 of this year, vowed to see polio’s complete eradication. The fight is not cheap. Already Rotary has contributed more than $1.2 billion to wipe out the disease. But that has still left a funding gap that Rotarians fear could derail 24 years of effort.

In May the World Health Assembly said polio eradication was a “programmatic emergency for global public health.” Although new polio cases are at an all-time low – fewer than 140 worldwide so far this year – a $945 million shortfall has affected several scheduled immunization efforts in polioaffected countries and could derail the entire program unless the gap is bridged. If eradication fails and polio rebounds, says Rotary Foundation chair Wilf Wilkinson, up to 200,000 children a year could be paralyzed. The Rotary International recently reaffirmed its commitment to

raise an additional $75 million over the next three years to help bridge the funding gap. That money comes from local fund raising efforts in communities like Chilliwack. John Blessin is well-know for the unique bird houses he sells to help fund polio eradication. And the recent Rainbow Wine Festival at the Best Western raised $2,150. “That will immunize 4,134 children that we have saved from ever contracting this horrible disease,” says Wood. The efforts aren’t just financial. Rotarian Carol Tichelman is currently on her fourth trip to Africa Continued: Polio/ p14

Guns found at grow-op near school

Two firearms were seized when police dismantled a marijuana growop near an elementary school in the 6900-block of Vedder Road last week. Chilliwack RCMP Drug Section were tipped off about a possible grow, and a search warrant executed on Oct. 11 confirmed it, said RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “This information is always a priority for our drug section but even more so when it is so close to a school,” she said. “Dismantling grow-ops is a primary focus of our three-year Strategic Plan and will continue to be a high priority.” Two firearms were also seized from the residence. The address is very close to Sardis elementary school, as well as a daycare centre, she said.  A total of 632 plants was discovered with an estimated street value of $40,000. A man, 65, and a woman 44, both of Chilliwack, were arrested. Crown is considering several charges.

the coming weeks, giving drivers enough notice of the traffic pattern change and the date tolling will start. There have been no difficulties with construction and work remains on schedule for an eight-lane opening sometime in December as planned, the spokesman said. The remaining two of 10 lanes would open about a year later because of subsequent work to dismantle the old bridge and its approaches. The bridge will be free for the first week it’s open before halfprice tolls of $1.50 per standard vehicle kick in. The discount from regular $3 tolls ends March 1 for drivers who don’t register with the Treo electronic tolling system by then. Those who do register lock in the discount for one year and those who sign up before December also get a credit for 20 free crossings. The new bridge is to restore transit service to the corridor, which hasn’t seen a Coast Mountain bus in decades due to congestion. TransLink kept the planned Port Mann bus service in the latest version of its 2013 plan in September, even though mayors have vowed to rescind a $30-million property tax hike and press the province to replace it with a different source. “It is TransLink’s intention to have this ser vice in place for when the bridge opens, but we do not have an opening date yet,” spokesperson Debbie Parhar said. “We are getting prepared but there have been no assignments or driver sign up yet.” The planned Rapid Bus ser vice will be scaled back from what was originally envisioned due to declining TransLink revenue. The buses were to run over the new bridge every 10 minutes all day –  now they’ll only run every 10 minutes in the morning and afternoon peaks and be cut to every 30 minutes at off-peak times. And it will only go from Langley to Braid Station, not to Lougheed Station as previously planned.

News Agassiz woman has close call with train Jessica Peters Black Press

A trip to the medical clinic ended with a dramatic twist for an Agassiz woman last Thursday. Jeanne Hope was heading home from having some blood work done, driving her scooter over the tracks near the museum. But she ran into some trouble when the scooter’s wheel became lodged in the track. “I couldn’t move it,” she said. “It was pretty frightening.” To make matters worse, a train would be along shor tly. While she was able to get off the scooter and leave the tracks, the 92-year-old’s only mode of transportation wasn’t moving for her. If she couldn’t move it, it would have been destroyed by the train. “I couldn’t pull it, I couldn’t do anything,” she said. As the railway crossing arms were coming down to stop traffic due to the oncoming train a truck driver stopped at the crossing jumped

out of his vehicle to give her hand. That was Scott Buchberger, a driver for First Class Waste Management. He managed to get the scooter off the tracks just in time for the train to pass safely. “I was just going over when the lights came on,” Buchberger said. “I didn’t really think, I just jumped out of my truck and pulled it out of the way.” It was only a matter of seconds before the train was at the intersection. As he drove off, he noticed that train was pulling its breaks and coming to a stop. “I was surprised at how fast the train came,” he said. “I started asking her if she was okay, and it was right there.” He said he was doing what came naturally, and that most people would probably do the same. “I’ve never thought of myself as a hero,” he said. But as a regular driver in the area, picking up Agassiz and Harrison’s garbage

once a week, he notes that he has seen others making their way across the tracks. The tracks are the only way for people who live in north areas of Agassiz to get into town, on foot or by scooter. The tracks are deep and wide that even traffic slows down to cross. Taking a scooter around is Hope’s only mode of independent transportation. Despite being in her nineties, Hope is ver y active and continues to curl at the Friendship House each week, although a friend drives her there. The state of the train tracks is something that has worried Hope in the past. She travels by scooter a few times a week to get things done in Agassiz. “It’s so rough (crossing the tracks) you can’t even stand it,” she said. “Every time I get there I worr y about it. I try to speed up but it’s so rough, everything falls out of my basket.” When she returned home after the close call, she called the

District of Kent’s engineering department to let them know what had happened. “I was told they’re working on it,” she said. Mick Thiessen, director of engineering, said that this isn’t the first time someone has had trouble crossing at the Evergreen Road CP Rail crossing. About one year ago, another resident’s walker became stuck in the crossing. At that time, the District sent a letter to the Ministr y of Transpor tation and Infrastructure, which is in charge of that corridor, to look at what could be done to make the crossing safer. With the close call on Thursday, they sent off another letter urging the ministr y to give the issue “serious consideration.” “These are our residents and we want to ensure their safety,” Theissen said. “I think they have to look at the tracks themselves and see what’s happening there and address pedestrian safety.” He added that district staff is happy to help communicate with ministries responsible for issues that arise. “It always helps when the District can write and assist them in getting their voices heard,” he added. When contacted by Black Press, CP Rail said they are hoping the people involved will contact them to provide details of the incident. “We take any incident like this seriously,” said media relations advisor Andy Cummings. “We will look into what happened and determine if further steps ned to be taken. Members of the community can get in touch with us through our Community Connect line,” at 1-800766-7912.

Home sales in Chilliwack appear to be on the upswing following a dismal August, says the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board. The number of homes sold through the Multiple Listing Service was down just two per cent over the same time last year in September. August home sales were down 36 per cent. “Following a sharp drop in demand in August, home sales activity bounced back in September,” said CADRB president Cynthia Admiraal, The volatility, she said, could be blamed on recent changes to mortgage regulations. “Looking back at previous rounds of mortgage rule tightening, we always saw volatility in the months immediately following their implementation, so this is nothing new,” Admiraal said. “While September’s improvement was a welcome surprise, we’ll need a few more months of data yet to gauge the real impact of the most recent regulatory changes.” The average price of homes sold in September 2012 was $301,749. This was down just one per cent from September 2011. New residential listings numbered 340 units in September, falling 18 per cent from a year earlier. There were 1,792 active residential listings on the board’s MLS system at the end of September, down five per cent from September 2011. There were 11.7 months of inventory at the end of September 2012, down from 12.1 months reported at the same time last year, but still above the long-run average for this time of the year. The number of months of inventory is the number of months it would take to sell current inventories at the current rate of sales activity. The combined dollar value of home sales in September 2012 totalled $46.2 million, down three per cent from the dollar volume reported in September 2011. The total value of all properties sold in September was $48.7 million, down just one per cent on a year-over-year basis. The number of homes sold via the MLS system of the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board edged down slightly on a year-over-year basis in September 2012, but this marked a considerable recovery from the drop reported in August.

Who’s the lame duck?

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

With Christy Clark trying not to appear as a lame-duck premier, NDP leader Adrian Dix has been doing his best not to put his foot in his mouth in the run-up to the 2013 election. It’s interesting to compare and contrast Dix’s situation with that of Carole James, his predecessor as leader. James took the reins of the B.C. NDP in 2003, when people were getting wise to the Gordon Campbell Liberals’ strategy of gutting the public service to balance the budget. James pledged to build a broader base of support for her party, which was still feeling the sting of being annihilated in the 2001 provincial election. With anti-Liberal sentiment growing, the strategy seemed to work. In 2005, the NDP went from two seats to 33 and people began to talk of the once-vanquished party forming government in 2009. But James, doing her best to bridge the gap between big labour and big business, couldn’t get the party over the political hump. As such, she was unceremoniously given the boot in late 2010. Dix, the longtime party strategist and premier-in-waiting by most accounts, wants to please enough voters to gain a majority in the legislature. But he runs the risk of pleasing no one through giving little detail about his party’s stance on such key issues as oil pipelines, labour contracts and welfare rates. He’s politically fortunate that the popularity of Clark and the B.C. Liberals’ is low – even lower than when James was NDP leader. Dix hasn’t been completely silent on policy. During a speech to a business group last month in Vancouver, he showed nerve by pledging to raise corporate taxes if his party forms the next B.C. government. That sounds like the NDP of old, the party line from which James was so keen to distance herself and the NDP, in trying to appeal to more voters. We hope for more policy pronouncements from Dix in the near future. Waiting to lay out his platform, so as not to alienate voters, makes him just as lame as Clark appears to be. ~ Black Press

Canadian perspective on the U.S. election

With the U.S. election race too hard to call, who will be best for Canada when the chips finally fall? For sure, President Barack Obama has found the past four years a tough row to hoe. Jobs, the economy, and the debt plague his administration. But given the mess he inherited from the Bush reign, no one should have expected a one-size-fits-all quick fix. The Democrats know too well, perhaps to their peril, the effects of the grindingly slow economic recover y with the national debt weighing in at $16 trillion. This is all delicious stuff for the Republicans who have made jobs and the economy a central part of their platform to get Americans to vote Mitt Romney for President. On the up side, the Obama administration has passed health care reform, a stimulus act and

reformed Wall Street to tighten those light fingers. The war in Iraq ended, as did the life of Osama Bin Laden, and Obama set about improving America’s image abroad which had been royally battered during the Bush years. As Prime Minister Harper pointed out when Margaret Obama was elected, “The United EVANS States remains Canada’s most important ally, closest friend and largest trading partner.”  But that was before the sticky issue of the Keystone XL pipeline debacle when Obama threw the deferment factor into the mix, forcing Harper to re-think markets for our oil. That led to our own

debacle of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline and shipping bitumen to Asian markets. Pondering who is better for Canada, reporter Basil Waugh with UBC Reports enlisted political scientists Richard Johnston and Paul Quirk for their take on the campaign so far. “The race is very close, but it might not matter,” said both Johnston and Quirk. “The best polls available put Barack Obama ahead of Mitt Romney by two to four percent. But this slim margin is enough that the best forecaster in the U.S. – Nate Silver of the FiveThirtyEight blog – currently puts Obama’s likelihood of re-election at 75 per cent. This is because there are so few undecided voters.” Granted, the UBC interview was done before the first Presidential Debate a few weeks

ago and we all know where that ended. Romney came out swinging while Obama totally off his game. With that nasty wake-up call, Obama got his act together for round two last week. He made enough of a showing that he joked about it at the Alfred Smith Memorial Dinner, a ritual political fundraiser during election campaigns when candidates take time out for some lighthearted comedic one-liners. “Some of you may have noticed I had a lot more energy in our second debate,” said Obama. “I felt really rested after the nice, long nap I had in the first debate.” Johnston thinks this election could have really mixed results with Obama winning the presidency, the Republicans winning the House and the Senate up for grabs. With votes inconclusive, the political system could remain

divided with neither side getting what it wants. It’s like Canadians voting in a minority government. Each side holds the other’s feet to the fire but as for forward movement, forget it. Canadians, Quirk said, generally prefer the social policies of the Democrats. “But the Republicans, who are better on energy and trade, would actually likely be better for Canada economically.” The next president, though, has got to fix the U.S. economy and nail that break-over point when the debt’s coming down and employment numbers are going up. And that’ll be good for both countries. So, to paraphrase Mitt Romney’s one-liner and in the spirit of Sesame Street, this editorial is brought to you by the letter O and the number 16 trillion.

RETIREMENT SALE! AFTER 51 YEARS, CASEY IS RETIRING!

Trade deal flying under radar The new omnibus bill of the Conservative Government is a carefully timed smoke-screen.  The Conservatives are ensuring that Canadians are focused on yet another attack on our democratic processes while they slip by a truly frightening trade agreement with China.  While the US Presidential candidates make a cornerstone of their platforms protection of American citizens from misuse by China, the Harper government is secretly giving away Canadians rights for the next 31 years. This agreement, poised to pass quietly Nov. 1, will allow China’s powerful state-owned enterprises such as Sinopec, (Asia’s largest refiner) the Kailuan Group (a coal conglomerate) and CNOOC (a national

oil company) to control the pace and scale of resource development in Canada.  If you are one of the many who look forward to restoring some of the environmental protection and other laws that have been recently gutted, think again. The deal, in effect, gives risk insurance to Chinese companies borne by Canadian taxpayers. Taxpayers assume major liability for business losses of Chinese investors due to legal or regulatory changes in Canada. When the Northern Gateway Project is rejected by British Columbians it will allow its Chinese backers to sue the provincial government. British Columbians won’t even be able to follow what’s going on, as the agreement allows for quasi-secret arbitration that

doesn’t even fall under Canadian jurisdiction.  The treaty clearly states that documents may be withheld from the Canadian public in these cases. The Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) also gives China’s state owned enterprises, already under fire for corruption and inefficiency, the right to contest any Canadian standards that might stipulate the use of Canadian labour and materials in resource projects. Watch for floods of Chinese workers as companies are legally allowed to bring in their own workers and materials. While we discuss the omnibus bill the Harper Government is in the process of giving control of our future away to China.

Garden gives reason to celebrate It’s amazing to see how the Sunshine Community Garden came together this year. From its official Earth Day launch in April, the garden was designed to be entirely wheelchair accessible, an inclusive social space promoting health and well-being.  It now contains a combination of 60 individual and group plots and high-raised beds that make gardening accessible for individuals with mobility issues. But as we celebrate the successes of our first year, there is still work to be done. There are two ‘end of the growing year’ events coming up. The public is invited to a Work Party, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 3, to clean up plots and

prepare for winter. A compost demonstration workshop will be held at 10 am. Volunteers are needed to help make this day a success, and food and beverages will be supplied to those who pitch in. The gardens committee will host a community meeting Nov. 5 to discuss the garden’s success and limitations, plan ahead for 2013 (fundraising ideas) and provide opportunities for plot registration. We are also looking for new volunteer committee members. Those interested in socializing before the meeting are welcome to join us at 5:30 p.m. for a potluck. Bring a hot or a cold dish, with enough for your party plus one.

Also, please bring your own serving utensils and dishes (to take home and wash). The community meeting will follow from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.. Please RSVP to both events. Email sunshinecommunitygarden@gmail.com or call me, Laura Delisle, at 604-703-0341. Those interested in learning more about the garden can join our Facebook group at www.facebook.com/ groups/440631692634584/ Our current newsletter, plot registration forms, and other resources can be found online at www.gardengabbers.com/ sunshine%20community%20 garden%20page.htm  

Re:  Local NDP keeping the faith, Progress letters,

Oct, 18. I was interested to read Mr. Harrington’s letter praising the Christian roots of the NDP, and his berating of Christians who vote against them.  As a local Christian, I was also interested in how the NDP voted on last month’s Motion 312, which would have opened discussion on the criminal code definition of when human life begins (hopefully allowing modern science to help update the antiquated definition that exists now).

NDP actions not in line with Christian roots The NDP, with its ‘Christian roots,’ voted unanimously against the Motion.  I understand there is not a perfect political party in existence, but as Christians we must do our best with the vote we have.  Which should rank higher; issues around money and taxes or the protection of human life?  Is the NDP voting unanimously against Motion 312 Christ-like?  I doubt it.    Bryan Petkau, Chilliwack

More than 2,000 protesters gathered on the B.C. legislature lawn Monday, some promising to provoke arrests as well as criticizing proposed heavy oil pipelines from Alberta to the B.C. coast. Organizers offered training in civil disobedience techniques to the more than 1,000 people who signed up for the protest, under the banner of Defend

Victoria Police were out in force to back up legislature security, who locked the buildings down and turned away visitors for the day.

Energy and Paperworkers Union. He said his union is “diametrically opposed” to pipeline expansion, despite the fact it represents employees at the Chevron refinery in Burnaby that is supplied by the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Alberta. The new proposals are “job killers” because more diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands will be shipped out raw, either from Burnaby or Kitimat, Coles said. Protesters ringed the crowd with sections of black banner described as being the length of an oil tanker, and staked it to the legislature lawn. That is technically a violation of legislature rules, which are aimed at preventing people from setting up tents and other structures on the lawn. Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations group on B.C.’s North Coast, said the protest is designed to show Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Premier Christy Clark that people are prepared to “stand in front of the bulldozers” to stop the projects. Other speakers included federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May and B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert. Maude Barlow, national chair of the Council of Canadians, called for opposition to gas pipelines and liquefied natural gas exports from norhern B.C. as well. Supporters of the oil sands protest include Simon Fraser University professor Mark Jaccard, former United Nations ambassador Stephen Lewis and U.S. environmentalist Bill McKibben, a leading campaigner for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Chilliwack protest is at noon at MLA Les’ Airport Road Constituency office. Said PIPE UP spokesperson, Michael Hale: “The federal government is trying to ram pipelines through our province, and our provincial government is sitting on the fence, suggesting that for the right price, BC’s coast can be bought.”

Patty Tyson stares in disbelief at the rubble in the hotel lobby where she would have been standing two years ago when a massive 7.0 earthquake shook Haiti to its knees. Fortunately for Tyson, her group of Compassion Canada volunteers — a church-based NGO — had “special diplomatic status” when they arrived in Haiti and they were delayed getting to the hotel located near Port-auPrince, 15 km from the earthquake’s epicentre. “The whole building

just collapsed,” Tyson said in a recent interview. “We would have been in the lobby had we not been delayed.” More than 230,000 people died in the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, and a million more were made homeless. A poor country before the earthquake, life in Haiti became even more unbearable. Tyson, who sponsors a Haitian child through a Compassion program, decided she had to do something more. “How do you live through that, and do nothing?” she said. So Tyson has organized an ambitious fundraising event here in Chilliwack to collect money for 50 Haitian mothers in Compassion’s Child Survival Program to feed and look after their children. But it’s not just a

“hand-out” to some unfortunates, Tyson said. “These people are independent, hardworking people who don’t want a hand-out — they want to live like you and me.” She said Compassion programs help give them “a leg up” with job skills, medical care and proper nutrition. And all the donations are spent on that purpose. “I trust Compassion,” Tyson said. “I’ve been involved with them for 10-plus years, I’ve been all over the world with them. I’ve seen their work. I trust their work.” And she said Compassion’s accounts are open so donors can see that their money is spent “on the ground and working for the

inner of Five Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score, Titanic the Musical has been enchanting audiences all across North America and now drops anchor in Chilliwack as part of its Canadian leg of the tour on October 28 at 7:30pm. Spectacular sets and a brilliant cast of 30 professionals recounts the story of one of America’s greatest tragedies while remaining sensitive to the souls that were lost on that terrible day 100 years ago. Presented by The Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society, this award winning broadway show takes you on board the doomed ship as the hopes and dreams of the passengers are recounted by their ghosts from the ocean floor. With all the grandeur of Broadway this visually stunning production overflows with magnificent sets and and incredible talent in a show you will not want to miss! Cleverly transforming the Main Theatre into that ill-fated ship, you’ll be taken back a century following the stories of a Stoker, a Lookout, and a Telegraph Operator as they give us their take on why Titanic was going too fast, saw the iceberg too late, and could not summon help in time.

As the Kinsmen Foundation of BC celebrates its 60th Anniversary we are searching for past, present and future Kinsmen, Kinettes and K-40’s. If you were ever a member of Kin, or if you were a Kin Marching Mother, please go to www.goingstrong.ca and let us know of your Kin career.

Powerful and moving, we follow the aspirations of those on board the doomed ship ranging from third class passengers heading to the New World who dream of a better life, to the Edwardian first class desperate to maintain their lifestyle. You will fall in love with these characters even though you know their fate.

Titanic: The Musical tells the story of this fantastic ship launching on her maiden voyage and the tragic sinking thru the eyes of several different characters amongst the rigid class-distinctions of that era. With all the Pizzaz of Broadway, Titanic: The Musical asks all the what ifs, like what if there had been enough lifeboats, what if the ship hadn’t been going so fast, what if help had arrived sooner.Money, class, and all the dreams in the world mean nothing to the powerful sea at the end of the day when she claims the sadly crippled “unsinkable” ship. Come see this phenomenal Broadway Musical as it explores the grandeur of the ship and the lives of the people on it in a spectacular theatre experience!

to participate in Immunization Day in Ethiopia. It’s a trip Debora Soutar experienced in 2010. She witnessed first hand the impact the disease can have on people’s lives. She remembers seeing a man so doubled over with deformity he was difficult to recognize and had to be carried by his friend. The Rotarians, who make the trip at their own expense, help administer the oral inoculations to the children. “The moms are very, very grateful,” says Soutar, “because they know how devastating the disease can be.” Soutar plans to return because she understands the importance of the fight and how close we are to seeing a world that is polio free. “The fact is it’s totally manageable and preventable,” Soutar says, “so there’s no excuse.” • October 24 (Jonas Salk’s birthday) marks World Polio Day. In early September, Rotary launched a new, interactive website -- endpolionow.org – intended to educate, activate and inspire visitors to actively support the polio eradication effort. Visitors are encouraged to sign a petition calling for world leaders to commit additional resources to close the funding gap.

Teachers advised not to show Amanda Todd video Wanda Chow Black Press

A crisis trauma response consultant for the B.C. Education Ministry is recommending the Amanda Todd video not be shown in classrooms out of concern for its impact on vulnerable students. Kevin Cameron, executive director of the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response, was lead author of a notice sent to school district superintendents and principals around B.C. warning of the potential effects of showing the YouTube video. Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd created and posted the video online several weeks ago.  It recounted how she became a victim of an online stalker who caused her to be severely bullied, emotionally and physically, both on the Internet and at a number of schools she attended.  She committed suicide last week. Cameron, who works nationally and internationally, and led the crisis response team in Taber, Alta., after the school shootings there in 1999, just days after the Columbine shootings.  He also helped develop B.C.’s recently adopted ERASE (Expect Respect And a Safe Education) strategy which addresses bullying and other harmful behaviours.  “We have seen in multiple jurisdictions around B.C. and elsewhere, more kids who are coming out of the woodwork” and seeking help in the aftermath of the Amanda Todd case, he said.  Calling the Todd video “traumatic stimuli,” he cautioned schools not to show it in classrooms as a general rule. “There are some professionals and even parents who feel that just by showing the clip that that is somehow going to teach the kids not to bully,” said Cameron.  The problem is, any classroom could have students who are silently struggling with being bullied or other issues.

They may have decided they don’t want to watch it “because they know how on the edge they are already,” he said. Having that

choice taken away from them by playing it in the classroom could elevate that level of risk. “Tragically, one of the most common lines that

some adults and even youth alike will use after a tragedy like the Amanda Todd situation occurs, is ‘See, this is what bullying causes,’”

he said. “The problem with using that line but not having the skills to follow up with it, is then it embeds in some of our high-risk youth the

belief that it is cause and effect, meaning ‘I’m being bullied, this is what bullying causes, and I have no way out.’ ” He noted the video is

not a positive one which shows kids how to manage bullying but rather one which depicts a situation that ultimately Continued: Video/ p18

Chilliwack as part of West’s trial for the firstdegree murder of 14-yearold Chelsey Acorn of Abbotsford. It was recorded after West asked to talk to investigators about other homicides.  The first portion of the four-hour interview was played Tuesday, when West said, “I can give you three bodies,” which Kwak interpreted to mean three other victims, in addition to Acorn. In Wednesday’s recording, West, now 61, clarifies that he meant three victims, including Acorn. But he refuses to provide the names or any other details of the other two victims unless his terms are meant. These demands include being moved from “the hole” – prison segregation – where he says he is suffering “cruel and unusual punishment.” “(They are) a bunch of drug-addicted people that are just disgusting … Some of them shouldn’t even be in prison; they should be in mental institutions,” he says of the other prisoners.  Other terms he mentions include spending the afternoon with a police officer just to talk, visiting with friends and

family in a coffee shop rather than prison, $4,000 cash, and being sprung from jail for three weeks to visit the gravesites of his victims without police accompaniment. Kwak and Page try to convince West that providing details of the other supposed murders will provide closure for the families who are missing a loved one and enable them to have a proper burial.  “You took the lives of three people … They’re gone now because of you. Now the only thing you can ask for is forgiveness, and that’s what you’re doing for yourself … You get to live with yourself, knowing you did the right thing,” Kwak says. He tells West that others will see him a “manipulative, selfish, insecure murderer who had no concern with sticking that body in that hole,” rather than someone who is remorseful for his crimes.  West continues to insist his terms be meant, lamenting that if he were to give police the details, he would get nothing in return.  “The minute I give you a name, a location, I have another charge of murder against me,” he says. At one point during the interview, both officers leave the room, and West speaks aloud. “I’ve got a lot of regrets in my life, believe me … I’m sorry. I’m sorry for f---ing up five or six people’s lives … Something I’ve got to live with … You think it’s going to be easy sitting in a courtroom with someone’s mother?” After two and a half hours of urging West to provide details of the other crimes, Kwak leaves the room in frustration. “I think you’re being totally selfish … I don’t think you give a sh-about anybody but yourself … This is not a game. Chelsey Acorn’s life was taken by you and that’s a pity … I’m done!” Kwak yells at West before leaving the room. West was never charged with any other murders, and his judgeonly trial continues in Chilliwack.  Acorn was reported missing from an Abbotsford foster home in June 2005, and her remains were found the following April in a shallow grave in a wooded area outside of Hope.

Additional scientific analyses, continuing to be overseen by the Sto:lo Committee, will be carried out following their return home. Biographies of each of the eleven individuals and a set of community guidelines for the treatment of ancestral human remains are planned to be produced as outcomes of the collaboration between LOA and the Sto:lo Committee.

On Friday, Sto:lo songs and a solemn procession marked an important part of the Journey Home with the physical return of the ancestors’ remains. Before the celebration, each ancestor was placed into a custommade cedar box, and then brought to the Sto:lo Resource Centre.

There could be a limited window of opportunity for teachers or parents to help a vulnerable youth, as some youth might not express their concerns a second time, he said.  “Students will often go and give some type of pre-incident sign or indicator, to the adults that they have the most faith will help them.” So if a student starts doodling images of suicide out of the blue, “nine times out of 10  it’s because they’re hoping that teacher will read between the lines and ask them, ‘My goodness, are you OK? What’s going on?’  “If the kid sees the teacher walk by and say, ‘That’s not appropriate for the classroom,’ if that drawing is a cry for help, what does the teacher’s failure to respond to that cry inadvertently do to the level of risk? And the answer is a simple one, it increases it.” The letter to school districts is a reminder to school administrators and teachers to be aware of such cries for help, Cameron said. In dealing with high-profile incidents, he said it was originally thought one of the biggest concerns is having people overreact. But the opposite is true, with hindsight after many tragedies showing there were warning signs of situations no one thought were as bad as they turned out to be. “You can overreact, but it is so rare, I would rather deal with mopping up someone’s overreaction because somebody was concerned about a kid, than under-reaction that causes somebody their life.”

The residents of Hampton House, along with staff, have been busy raising funds for needy causes. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Hampton House fundraisers always a big hit Jennifer

The Progress A group of dedicated Chilliwack seniors have been quietly raising thousands of dollars for local charities. And they’re enjoying every minute of it. Hampton House residents on Hodgins Avenue have collectively raised a total of $5,670 since January, according to figures from staff. For resident Margaret Tinge it’s something she looks forward to — in part because of the fellowship and socializing. She pitches in with most fundraising activities organized for the seniors. “Why not? You make such

wonderful friends doing it, and it’s always for a great cause.” The charity activities are something meaningful that they all enjoy doing together — residents and staff alike, said Rita Dick, Hampton House community relations manager. “Our seniors are very involved in their community and really enjoy raising funds, especially for local programs which most times get overlooked,” said Dick. So far in 2012, they completed the Walk for Memories to support of Alzheimer’s, A river cleanup for Chilliwack Senior Peer Council, the 2nd Annual Bake Book and Bargain Sale for the Kidney Foundation, Pennies for Tots for Chilliwack

Community Services’ Children’s Programs, and the Hampton House barbecue for a Cause for CCS.  Resident Marvia Hickli appreciates how the fundraising events allow her to carry on the proud tradition of volunteer service that she started as a young woman. “Once we get here, for many of us it means having no car or way to get out. So this is wonderful, being able to walk for Alzheimer’s, or stuff the bus, or clean up at Island 22 Park.” Resident Shirley Waugh said she enjoys every single one of the activities they organize, but has one annual fundraiser that is especially dear to her heart. “I’m a big supporter of rais-

ing funds for the Terry Fox Run.” Resident Sheila Noer told a story about talking one of her neighbours into painting a blue forget-me-not on her cheek to honour the Alzheimer’s Society Walk for Memories fundraiser. Resident Lillian Sjogren clearly has a blast as these events. It’s the warmth and camaraderie they share that makes all the difference, she said. “The most fun I had was at the Island 22 cleanup. We laughed ourselves sick,” she remembered. They spotted a toilet seat up a tree, while cleaning garbage from the riverside, and that set them all off. “Rita wanted me to climb the

tree to get it.” The welcoming atmosphere even brings some of the shyer residents out of their shell. Resident Janice Gronick tends to be a little reclusive, but now likes to do her part. “But because of Rita and Tracey, I get involved!” she said. It’s been a busy year, and there’s no stopping these committed folks. Coming up in November is the Honour Event for Remembrance Day, where they’ve been collecting funds for the War Amps for three years running, and then in December it’s Stuff the Bus for the local food bank. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

Buying a home for the first time can be a formidable prospect and it is hard to know where to start. Before making the leap, it is important to familiarize yourself with some basic home-buying principles. The transition from being a renter to owning your own home requires some changes to your lifestyle. If you are planning to live in the area and you like the thought of taking care of your own property (ie. mowing the lawn, gardening and keeping the house in good repair) then you are ready to own your home. The first step to buying is to find a lender and get pre-qualified for a loan. Call a local Realtor and ask them to recommend a lender with whom they have a good working relationship or visit your current financial institution. Your lender will help you get your pre-qualification and will also help you decide how much you can afford. Since buying a home is probably the most expensive purchase you will make, calculating what price you can afford is extremely important. Many buyers experience needless anxiety about the prospect of being turned down for a loan. The truth is that lenders are always looking for creative ways to get buyers into the home of their dreams. One of the first things they look at is your household income. What mortgage payment will your income support? They look at the total amount of your income and how stable it is (straight salary, commission, bonuses and/or overtime). They also consider the relationship between your income and expenses. Their experience suggests that your fixed housing expenses should not be more than a specific percentage of your gross monthly income. Your down payment and credit history are also carefully considered.

The next step is the house-hunt. Make a list of what you are looking for: Where do you want to live? What kind of neighborhood do you like? Check out schools, shopping, entertainment, recreation and any other elements that you need for your lifestyle. What kind of house do you want? Make a list of features that you absolutely cannot do without in your home and a list of what you would like to have, if possible. Bring your list to your Realtor and they will help you find homes for sale that fit within your parameters. One of your best allies will be your Realtor, who will guide you through all the details and possible pitfalls in the home buying process. A common pitfall that first time buyers often fall into is “Buyer’s Remorse”. When your Realtor has shown you dozens of homes and you can’t make a decision on any of them, you are starting to show the symptoms of buyer’s remorse. Ask yourself, “Am I really ready to buy a house?” “What is holding me back?” If you are worried that you can’t afford the payments, ask your Realtor to show you something in a lower price range. If the houses you’ve seen don’t have all the qualifications you are looking for, shorten your list of “must-haves” and remember that no house will be your perfect dream house in every detail. Choose a house you can imagine yourself turning into a home and then take the plunge. If you find yourself waking up in a panic the night after you signed the papers or wondering what on earth you have just done, don’t worry, these are common reactions. Buyer’s remorse is a temporary affliction and will pass as soon as you move into your new house and begin to experience the wonderful benefits of having a home that is all your own.

For many people, their home is their biggest asset and their prized possession. When it comes time to buy that first home, or sell your current home and upgrade, why trust someone that doesn’t have intimate knowledge of the area and local market? Having been born and raised in Chilliwack, knowing the community and various neighbourhoods comes as second nature to me. With an extensive background in Personal and Commercial Insurance Sales and Marketing, I know what it takes to market products to the right people to achieve a quick sale and for top dollar. I love working with people and seeing my clients meet their Real Estate Goals is my main focus! When Buying or Selling Property, you need an honest, hardworking REALTOR that you can count on to be there for you and to devote the time to ensure that you are totally satisfied before, during and after your transaction. I am that REALTOR; and I welcome your calls.

Hello, my name is Corny Woelders, I am one of the proud owners of Landmark Realty Chilliwack. I am married and have two great kids. I grew up in Chilliwack and graduated from C.S.S.S. (a long time ago) and then moved to Abbotsford where I met my wife of 23 years. I predominately worked in the poultry and dairy industry and also ran our own Poultry Farm. I became a Realtor® a number of years ago and worked out of the Landmark Abbotsford office. However, I found myself selling a lot of homes in Chilliwack for friends and family, so when a Landmark franchise came available, my partners and I knew that Chilliwack was the place to go. Today’s low interest rates, plus low prices, plus high inventory, equals the perfect buyers market. So come on in and visit our office and I will help you with all your real estate needs.

New house, new issues

A good home inspector will be able to root out any deficiencies hiding in your new home.

By Maggie Calloway Most of us know it is essential to get a home inspection prior to buying a home; this essential step is to shield us from taking on someone else’s nightmare. Among other things a home inspection should alert us to are deficiencies not just on the surface but hidden in the walls such as bad plumbing, electrical wiring, and heating and cooling systems. But we have all seen episodes on TV

Brighten up your living space By Kerry Vital

If you’re looking to reduce your environmental footprint, natural gas is a great way to do that. With increased energy efficiency and cost savings, homeowners who install a natural gas system will find many benefits. Submitted photo

The comfortable choice: natural gas Natural gas has become a popular choice in Canada, for a variety of reasons. By Kerry Vital Natural gas is rapidly becoming a popular way of powering your home, for a large variety of reasons. One of the benefits of natural gas according to FortisBC is its convenience factor. Natural gas is available at the push of a button, so you don’t need to worry about running out of fuel for your barbecue, or having to wait for your fireplace or

outdoor firepit to get hot. It is easy to find stylish and functional appliances that use natural gas, so homeowners never have to sacrifice their sense of style. Imagine coming home from a long day at work and being able to sit in front of your natural gas-fuelled fireplace with a glass of wine, or toss together a gourmet meal for a dinner party with your gas cooktop or oven. That dream is easily made possible with a natural gas system. One of the great things about a natural gas cooktop and oven is its ability to cook food evenly. You will no longer have to worry about burning one side of the pan while the other is undercooked.

Natural gas can also heat your hot tub or pool, which is especially important when it’s cool outside. The water will be heated consistently and quickly, so your relaxation can begin almost immediately. Canada is the world’s third largest producer of natural gas, so it is an abundant source of energy, as well as being extremely popular. Natural gas meets 30 per cent of Canada’s energy needs, according to FortisBC. It is also a cleaner type of energy, emitting almost 30 per cent less carbon dioxide than oil. Another fantastic benefit to natural gas service

Winter seems to be rapidly approaching, and with it comes darkness, bad weather and a feeling of cabin fever. Perhaps putting some new decor into that cabin will drive away some of those feelings. A new colour palette might be a good place to start. “It’s nice to have something vivid and fun,” says Sarah Gallop, principal designer at Sarah Gallop Design Inc. “It really sets the tone for the space.” Colours such as bright orange, magenta and lime green are especially popular as accents, Gallop says. She often has people request a feature wall in a saturated colour, some bright pillows or other textiles, or even a new piece of furniture in a tropical hue. These accents go well with the new neutrals that are a recent trend. While many shake their heads at “apartment beige”, that colour is a classic for a reason and still features heavily in many homes. However, warm and cool greys are still requested, though Gallop sees them as being on their way out. “People like a timeless, classic look,” she says. “You spend a lot of money to decorate your house, and it doesn’t always make sense to go for a new look every time.”

Because of its popularity and other benefits, it can contribute to a better resale value for your home. While you’re living in your home, having natural gas services make it easier to convert other appliances to natural gas when your budget permits. Homeowners with natural gas service will be interested in the rebates that are available through FortisBC in a variety of categories. The first is for space and water heating. You can receive a $1,000 rebate for swapping your oil or propane heating system to natural gas and installing a new ENERGY STAR™-rated highefficiency heating system. Replacing your old water heater with a qualifying natural gas ENERGY STAR™ model will also make you eligible for a rebate of up to $500. “Heating water can consume 20 to 25 per cent of a home’s total energy use,” says Beth Ringdahl, program manager, energy efficiency and conservation for FortisBC. “So when it comes to looking at natural gas-powered water heaters, it makes sense to get the most efficient model you can find. Some of the new technologies make it possible to get a tank-less model, which is a bonus for smaller spaces.”

A few little changes can make a difference “ from page.23 Wallpaper has also become more popular recently and Gallop expects this to continue next year as well. “People have a bad association with it,” she says. “But it gives such a glamour that paint doesn’t have.” Because it doesn’t have to be permanent, Gallop says wallpaper is an easy way to keep up with interior decor trends. “Some of the new wallpapers are gorgeous,” she says, adding that you are no longer relegated to musty flowers and faux finishes that were popular in the 1980s and 1990s. Even the popular style of furniture has been changing recently, Gallop says. “More tailored looks are back,” she says. “The overstuffed furniture is out; it’s quite bulky and heavy-looking.” A move towards indoor-outdoor living has been coming on strong this year, and Gallop expects that to continue into the new year.

“It’s really about extending the living space out,” she says, adding that the ability to do so depends on the layout of the home and yard, but “it’s usually achievable.” Building an outdoor kitchen or patio for entertaining is one of many things homeowners can do to maximize their indoor-outdoor space. When you’re thinking of doing some updates, it’s always best to take a look at the things you already love about a space. Working out a budget for what you can afford and want to change is the best place to start. Overextending yourself is never a good plan. “You don’t want to be a slave to your house,” Gallop says.

Winterizing your barbecue Unless you have a natural gas barbecue that is connected directly to your home’s fuel supply, the chilly days of late fall signal the end of outdoor cooking. It is also the time to winterize your barbecue properly in order to prolong its life and look. Of all the different components, the grill is the one that deserves the most attention. Removing all traces of food is essential, especially after you have finished cooking the last meal. This is above all a question of hygiene. Use some steel wool or a metal brush with soapy water for cast iron grills. More expensive barbecues are often equipped with stainless steel grills which should be cleaned with a cloth, mild soap, and hot water. If you don’t want to go to a lot of trouble, do a self-clean by turning the burners on high and letting all food residues burn off. The next item to clean is the rubber pipe that connects the valve of the propane tank to the burners. Brushes that have been designed for this job are available at spe-

This retouching not only improves the look of your barbecue, it will also prevent rust from reappearing over the winter while the barbecue is in storage.

During a fall inspection of the home, as you prepare for winter, don’t forget to take a good look at the roof of your home. This is especially true if you live in an area that usually receives a lot of snow, because your roof will have to support all that weight during the winter months. The simplest and safest way to carry out an initial, basic inspection of a roof is to use binoculars, unless of course you have a flat roof. This will allow you to check for loose shingles or tiles that you can climb up and fix securely with nails or glue. Be sure to hammer down any nails that are sticking up, as they could cause water infiltrations. A thorough inspection of a roof also includes checking it from the inside. This will

have to be done from the attic. Check carefully to ensure that the roof has not started sinking between the rafters. Can you see any daylight filtering through anywhere? That is a sure sign that something is wrong! If you see any dark stains on the wood, they are likely the result of a water infiltration. The problem is relatively new if the stain is still damp and if you can pierce the wood fairly easily with a screwdriver. If this is not the case, the problem must have occurred in the past and been repaired. If you have any concerns, do not hesitate to call a professional to come and inspect the roof. It goes without saying that any repair jobs should be done properly and quickly to prevent any further damage.

The simplest and safest way to carry out an initial, basic roof inspection is to use binoculars.

Buying a home is the biggest financial commitment most of us will make in our lifetime so there is no such thing as overkill when it comes to checking out qualifications. What Mike Holmes is fighting for is already in place in our beloved province and has been since 2009. The ASTTBC lists several questions that you should ask when hiring an inspector, including how long he or she has been in business as an inspector, if the company has references, how long it will take to complete the inspection and what he or she charges.

Chiefs take two on Island road swing Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

The Chilliwack Chiefs finally saw their unbeaten string snapped Sunday night with a 4-1 loss in Powell River. But weekend wins over the Nanaimo Clippers and Alberni Valley Bulldogs had head coach Harvey Smyl feeling good about the road trip Monday morning. “I was pleased with the work ethic and I thought we handled adversity pretty well,” Smyl said. “We put ourselves in position to win all three of those games.” Smyl’s Chiefs started in Nanaimo Friday night, taking on the always tough Clippers. Lots of pucks went into the nets in this one, with Chilliwack taking a 5-4 decision. The Chiefs trailed 3-2 after 20 minutes, with goals from Mathieu Tibbett and Jarret Babych. Ben Masella scored in the second period, and Josh Hansen tallied twice early in the third to put Chilliwack up 5-3. Then it was hang-on time. Michael McNicholas scored at 14:26 of the final frame and the Chiefs spent the final moments weathering a storm. Chilliwack goaltender Mitch Gillam came up big down the stretch, and Nanaimo shot themselves in the foot,

with McNicholas taking a costly high-sticking penalty with just over two minutes left. The Chiefs spent the waning seconds on a power play and escaped with the W. “Nanaimo is a difficult place to play, all three of those places are,” Smyl said. “But when the Clippers started to come on in the third, we didn’t panic and we showed good character.” Based on the shotclock, Saturday night’s game against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs might have been over in regulation time. Chilliwack out-shot the Bulldogs 45-30, but had to wait until overtime to take a 3-2 win. The teams were tied 1-1 after one with Garrett Forster finally getting his first of the year for the Chiefs. The teams traded goals again in the second period, with Austin Plevy scoring for Chilliwack and Mitch Crisanti for Alberni Valley. Chilliwack peppered Bulldog netminder Jay Deo with 14 third period shots, but couldn’t put a puck past him. It was Hansen finally ending the game 2:24 into overtime, scoring his team-leading 11th of the year. Josh Halpenny got the win in net for Chilliwack, and is now 2-0. “I thought Josh played very well for us, and Alberni Valley did

have a few real good scoring chances,” Smyl commented. “The best thing to see was, he let one in early, but it didn’t seem to phase him. He just played better and better as the game went on.” Sunday night’s result, a 4-1 loss to the Powell River Kings, was probably predictable. Teams tend to run out of gas in the third of a three-games-in-threenights road trip, and this one was played in the afternoon. Tied 1-1 after 20 minutes, the Kings surged ahead with a second period strike by J.P. Villeneuve and put their tired opponents away on third period goals by Jarryd Leung and Evan Richardson. “We kept the game close and if we’d converted on the three blue-chip scoring chances we had early in the third period, it might have been different,” Smyl said, countering the tired-team notion. Hansen scored the lone goal for Chilliwack, his team-leading 11th of the year. That leaves him one shy of his career high of 12 set last season. And not that it means much, but the Chilliwack native is on a 47 goal pace in his final BCHL season. “I think he’s going to areas he didn’t have to go to in the previous years,” Smyl said of the veteran forward’s surprising scoring. “He’s

getting more power play opportunities and making the most of it. He’s going into the blue paint and getting a lot of garbage goals.” Hansen’s Chiefs come out of the weekend with a share of first place in the Mainland division. At 9-3-1-1, Chilliwack is tied with the surprising Prince George Spruce Kings (9-4-1-1). The Chiefs do have one game in hand. Chilliwack stays on the road this weekend, facing the Coquitlam Express Friday night and the Vernon Vipers Saturday. Get more on the weekend to come in the Thursday Progress sports section.

Chiefs earning national notice Chilliwack’s recent run has them moving into the top 20 in the Canadian Junior A hockey rankings. The Chiefs cracked the list for the first time last week, slotting in at No. 19. They dropped one spot in the latest rankings, released Monday morning. Chilliwack is one of three BCHL

teams making the list. The Victoria Grizzlies jumped all the way to No. 12 after earning an honourable mention last week. The Penticton Vees, who occupied top spot for nearly all of last season, hold the same No. 5 spot that they had last week. The Westside Warriors got an honourable mention.

Playoff chase continues versus Panthers The GW Graham Grizzlies junior varsity football team returns to action Wednesday afternoon, hosting Abbotsford Collegiate. The game will be played at GW Graham with a 2 p.m. kickoff. Students at GWG will be able to ante up a toonie to get out of class

early and take in the game. The Grizzlies have won two straight to even their record at 2-2, but they face a huge test in the unbeaten (4-0) Panthers. GWG sits fourth in the seven team AA Eastern Conference, with playoffs still in sight.

Wierks helps UFV blast Blues

The University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team downed

the Capilano University Blues, 69-29, in exhibition action Saturday night. The Cascades hosted the Blues at Abbotsord’s Envision Athletic Centre in one of their final preseason tilts. UFV dominated this game, out scoring Capilano in each quarter and holding the

Blues to fewer than 10 points in three of the four quarters. UFV led by 20 points after the first quarter and kept building on that lead until the game ended at 40 point difference. Mission’s Aieisha Luyken led all Cascades with 15 points with Chilliwack native Sarah Wierks chipping in with

12. The Cascades shot 40 percent from the floor. Chilliwack’s Kayli Sartori and Abbotsford’s Kayleigh Brink each pulled down five rebounds. Francis Penafiel led the Blues with 11 points. UFV closes out the preseason slate in Regina this weekend.

Cascade men dominate visiting Lions The University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball team defeated the York University Lions, 98-82, in a preseason match Saturday night. The teams clashed at the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack tour nament, in Kamloops, with Adam Friesen recording his first win as UFV’s head coach. Friesen’s crew came

out strong and established an early lead against their OUA East opponents. UFV led by 11 after one quarter. The Cascades played great defense in the first half, holding the high-powered York offense to 46 points. Jordan Blackman led all Cascades at the break with 13 points. UFV shot a remarkable 60 percent from

the floor. The Cascades stayed stingy in the second half, holding York to just 12 points in the third quarter. “The guys played really well today,” Friesen noted. “We’re continuing to gel as a team, and show longer strectches playing the calibre of basketball we are capable of.” Blackman led all Cascades with 26 points.

Kyle Grewal added 23 points and rookie Kevon Parchment had 22 points, seven total rebounds and five steals. James York recorded eight assists. The Cascades now turn their attention to hosting the second annual Honda Way Basketball Weekend, at the Envision Athletic Centre in Abbotsford this weekend.

Turner savours Olympic experience The 2012 London Summer Olympics are a couple months in the rear-view mirror, but local chiropractor Jenn Turner is still buzzing about the experience. Turner had one of the best seats in the house for the Games, working with the Canadian track cycling team. The owner of Chilliwack’s Optimum Sport Performance and Health Centre is the head chiropractor for Canadian Cycling and worked closely with seven elite athletes who competed in London. Turner worked with most of them over the last five years, travelling

Top two clash in BC Football Conference final Two Titans will clash in the BC Football Conference final, with the Vancouver Island Raiders taking on the Langley Rams. BCFC semi-finals were played last weekend, with both teams making short work of over whelmed opponents. The Rams, guided by former Chilliwack Husker defensive coordinator Jeff Alamolhda, blanked Victoria’s Westshore Rebels 33-0. Rebels running back Greg Morris led the BCFC in rushing during

the regular season, rolling up 1527 yards and 14 touchdowns. Against the Rams, Morris could only manage 28 yards on 14 carries. Michael Patko led the Rams offence with three catches, 102 yards and a major. Langley running back Daniel Xavier also found the endzone and Nick Downey ran a missed field goal back 120 yards for a score. Nick Naylor added three field goals. In the other semifinal, the Raiders outgunned the Okanagan

Sun 32-8. The teams went up and down the field in this one, generating 769 yards of total offence between them. But the Raiders had finish. Nanaimo quarterback Jordan Yantz accounted for four touchdowns, running for two and passing for two more. Yantz threw touchdown tosses to Whitman Tomuziak and Dustin Rodriguez while racking up 313 yards through the air. Mark Mueller added

the other Raider points on a 28 yard field goal. Alex Bradley had the lone touchdown for the Sun. The running back carried the ball 18 times for 150 yards. The Cullen Cup final takes place Saturday at 1 p.m. at Caledona Park in Nanaimo. It is a rematch of last year’s final, won 44-0 by the Raiders.
