B.C. pot reformers get whiff of weed victory in Washington

■ R EMEMBRANCE

Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. pot reform advocates are celebrating Washington State’s historic vote Tuesday to legalize and tax marijuana, saying it adds momentum to their campaign for change here. Initiative 502 passed with 55 per cent of voters in favour, making Washington the first U.S. state to legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults, along with Colorado, where a similar vote also passed. “Tell everyone I’m elated – it’s the biggest day of our movement ever,” Marc Emery, B.C.’s imprisoned Prince of Pot, tweeted from his U.S. jail cell. His wife Jodie Emery celebrated the win in Seattle –  where her husband was indicted for selling pot seeds – with Washington campaigners, including travel guru Rick Steves and the U.S. prosecutor-turned-reformer who put Marc behind bars. But U.S. authorities said their enforcement of national drug laws is unchanged –  marijuana remains federally illegal – and it’s unclear how the state can carry out its plan to license marijuana farming and tax its sale in stores without federal consent. Negotiations are expected in a one-year rule-making period before pot there could be legally farmed or sold. Observers here say the political implications are huge for the debate on drug policy reform in B.C., even if Washington’s legalization plan is blocked. Continued: DEBATE/ p4

Chamber backs B.C. tourism change Robert Freeman The Progress

Destination BC, the new tourism corporation announced this week by the Premier Christy Clark was welcomed by Chilliwack’s Chamber of Commerce. “Destination BC will ensure that the marketing of B.C.’s tourism sector will be led by tourism professionals in the private sector, in combination with protected funding from the B.C. Legislature,” said Patti

MacAhonic, executive director of the Chilliwack Chamber. She said the creation of Destination BC was “due to heavy lobbying” by Chambers of Commerce across the province for predictable, legislated funding for a destination marketing organization with leadership by tourism professionals. “The funding model and sector-based leadership of this new Crown corporation flow directly from policy of the BC Chamber of Commerce,” she said. Three years ago, the B.C.

Liberal government scrapped Tourism BC, citing administrative costs and the coming Olympic Games. But on Monday, Premier Clark reversed that decision, apparently after complaints raised by the tourism industry. Clark said the new organization was designed by tourism operators “who know first-hand how a tourism marketing organization should be structured to help them grow their industry and create jobs. “With Asia’s middle-class rap-

idly expanding and becoming more and more interested in tourism opportunities, this is our time to get out there and start marketing British Columbia,” she said. Destination BC’s structure will provide more responsiveness to the tourism industry and increase accountability to taxpayers, according to a government news release. The Destination BC board will be required to establish a Continued: TOURISM/ p24

News Chilliwack Community Arts Council to vacate the Cultural Centre Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Chilliwack Community Arts Council, known for creating the Bluegrass Festival and the Christmas Craft Market, will be leaving the Chilliwack Cultural Centre in the new year. Arts Council officials announced this week they are actively seeking new headquarters on the

south side of Chilliwack, and have looked at three different locations so far. They were in active negotiations for years, said city officials, but ultimately unable to reach a permanent agreement with the Arts Council board — mainly over financial matters. Neither side was prepared to state publicly exactly what those particulars were, and the two

groups have since resolved to part ways. “Council supports the arts and culture in Chilliwack and we wish the CCAC well in their future initiatives,” says Mayor Sharon Gaetz. She told The Progress the city has always valued its relationship with the arts organization, and had hoped they could remain a partner in the Cultural Centre

operations. The Arts Council will remain rent-free in their Cultural Centre space until Jan. 1, she said. “The Board of Directors and the staff of the Arts Council are looking forward to the changes, and to continuing the work we have done in the community for the past 50 years,” Acting Arts Council board president Gail Caljouw. They hope to be able to publicly

Singleton ‘Godfather’ of federal Liberals in B.C. Robert Freeman The Progress

Some call him the ‘Godfather’ of the federal Liberal Party in B.C. Because Hal Singleton held the Liberal “family” together in this province in the early 1990s when the Reform Party tidal wave struck, twice running as a candidate here in Chilliwack despite almost certain defeat. Defeat is not in his vocabulary. Even now, though diagnosed with terminal cancer, Singleton is still fighting the good fight, going public to get improved testing for colon cancer. “I’m not worried about Hal Singleton,” he said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “I know where Hal Singleton is going, I’m worried about where other people are going.” To honour Singleton’s contribution to the party and to the community, an “appreciation day” is being organized by Chilliwack Liberals on Nov. 22, with Justin Trudeau as the keynote speaker. Paul Boileau, president of the party’s Chilliwack constituency association, said Trudeau will speak at a fundraising event earlier in the day, and then again at a later public event that starts at 12:30 p.m. at the Coast Hotel. He said none of the funds raised at the first event go to Trudeau’s bid for the party leadership, but remain here in the Chilliwack riding. However, it will be a chance for party “supporters” — not formally Liberal members but who can still vote for the leader — to meet Trudeau. Boileau said he started organizing the tribute after hearing how Singleton had gone to Pakistan at his own expense to distribute shelter boxes to the homeless. Pakistan is not the safest place in the world to be at the best of times, Boileau said, and he began thinking of some way to pay tribute to

Poppy fund boxes stolen Six poppy fund collection boxes were stolen over the past five days from several Chilliwack businesses along Vedder Road. “The motivation behind crimes like this is just pure greed,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “Our veterans have played such an integral role for Canadians, and it’s really upsetting to have to report on a crime like this,” she said. The annual 11-day poppy fund drive in Chilliwack raises about $20,000 to help local veterans. Police said it’s difficult to tell when the thefts occurred. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion realized that the boxes were missing when they came to collect the donations made for poppies. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-702-5571 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Chilliwack’s Hal Singleton (right) with the late Pierre Trudeau. The former prime minister’s son, Justin Trudeau, will be the guest at a special event honouring Singletons’s contributions to the party and the community.

Singleton. “I just think he’s an amazing guy.” And clearly the Liberal Party owes Singleton, now 69, a debt of gratitude. After carrying the party’s flag a second time in the 2000 federal election, holding his own with the immensely popular Reform Party incumbent Chuck Strahl, Singleton continued to serve as the party’s Chilliwack constituency president. He was then elected president of the Liberal Party’s council of constituency presidents in B.C., and it was here that Singleton organized the party’s grassroots survival strategy in the province dominated by the Reform Party. “Hal was very well-known throughout the party, throughout the province,” Boileau said. And when the party needed

advice on who to nominate for appointments — they called Hal Singleton. Hence the ‘Godfather’ nickname. Singleton freely admits having “a fire in my belly” for politics when he retired from the Canadian Armed Forces in 1993 as a Lt. Col. after serving 33 years in the military. Singleton said he got his education in “politics 101” from Doug Steinson, another Liberal activist in Chilliwack, and quickly learned the finer points of electioneering for the upcoming election campaign. “I learned you better have an answer for every question,” he said. But at one campaign stop, stumped by a student’s question about Sri Lanka, instead of fumbling through an answer, Singleton told the student that his fellow election-hopeful, NDP candidate Rollie Keith,

also a retired military officer, could give a better answer. “Rollie just smiled at me, and talked for 15 minutes about Sri Lanka.” Singleton has now endured 2,500 hours of chemotherapy, but he’s spirited and good-humoured during the telephone interview. He has nothing but praise for the BC Liberal government’s recent announcement of a province-wide colorectal cancer screening program, although it comes too late for him. “I take my hat off to them,” he said. “I don’t care where good ideas come from, as long as they’re good ideas.” With early detection, colorectal cancer has a 90 percent survival rate. To Singleton, those odds make prevention, rather than treatment, a good idea for everyone. rfreeman@theprogress.com

announce their new location “very soon,” she said. All programming in the Cultural Centre will now be the responsibility of the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society. “We’ll carry on,” said Mayor Gaetz. “We know the Cultural Centre is in good hands, and Chilliwack will not be bereft of arts programs.”

RCMP seek public help in drug store armed robbery The Rexall Pharmacy on Mary Street was robbed by a masked man last Friday. Police said the lone male entered the store at 9200 Mary Street at about 6 p.m. and pointed what is believed to be a firearm at the three employees in the store at the time. The robber made off with an undisclosed amount of goods. “The victims involved in this robber y are very upset,” said RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “It is a really traumatizing event to experience, and we are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect,” she said. The suspect is described as a white male about 5’8”-5’11” tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a grey, short-sleeve, hooded sweatshirt with a black, long-sleeve shirt underneath. He was wearing grey, baggy sweat pants and black dress shoes. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

“American voters are now ahead of Canadian governments on the cannabis file,” said former B.C. Attorney General Geoff Plant, a high-profile reformer with the Stop the Violence coalition. “It helps advance the argument for legalization here in B.C.” Rob Gordon, director of SFU’s school of criminology, says it could spur more legalization drives if “the sky doesn’t fall” and Washington starts reaping a windfall of weed revenue. “The dominoes could start toppling,” he said. Washington estimates it would collect $560 million in the first year from a 25 per cent tax on the sale of licensed, regulated marijuana through authorized stores.  “Whether or not their federal government is going to tolerate this remains to be seen,” Gordon said. If pot is legally sold in Washington, Gordon expects a partial collapse of B.C.’s estimated $7-billion-a-year illegal pot industry as growers relocate their operations south of the border to avoid the need to smuggle.  “The operations in B.C. would shrink considerably –  they’d be focused entirely on patchy local consumption,” he said. B.C. decriminalization initiative readied

“It’s a huge step forward,” said B.C. marijuana activist Dana Larsen, who’s heads the Sensible BC campaign to force a provincial referendum on pot decriminalization using the Recall and Initiative Act. As with the campaign to defeat the HST, volunteers will have 90 days in the fall of 2014 to get thousands of signatures from every riding of the province to trigger a referendum. If it passes, the Legislature would vote on Larsen’s proposed Sensible Policing Act, which would order an end to police enforcement of simple cannabis possession. Premier Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix both say marijuana reform is up to the federal government and the prime minister has said the Conservatives won’t loosen Canada’s drug laws. But Larsen argues Ottawa could, if pressured enough, exempt B.C. from federal narcotics laws to enable a regulated and taxed marijuana experiment

here. He said legal pot in Washington helps end the argument that the U.S. may “retaliate or freak out” if B.C. reforms its drug laws. Plant said he prefers full marijuana legalization, rather than the half-step of decriminalization, which doesn’t allow regulation and taxation. “Full legalization removes the economic incentive for the illegal manufacture and distribution,” Plant said, adding authorized retail sales should largely end organized crime’s role. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who opposes marijuana use on grounds ranging from health to impaired driving risks, said it’s a fantasy to think gangs would fade away. “That is living in a dream world,” he said. “They’re not going to hang up their skates and become legal business people.”  But Plant anything that helps sap the strength of gangs would help. “I’m not saying we’re going to put an end to organized crime,” Plant said. “I’m saying let’s put an end to that part of organized crime which is about gunfire in broad daylight in the streets of our cities for control of the cannabis market. That would be progress I think.” The Washington State vote comes two months after B.C. civic leaders voted to urge the province to decriminalize marijuana and explore methods to regulate and tax it. Free-to-grow another reform option

University of the Fraser Valley criminologist Daryl Plecas, who is seeking the BC Liberal nomination in Abbotsford-South, said legalization in a handful of U.S. states –  or even B.C. –  would

$

do almost nothing to shut down grow-ops here because they would continue to feed off the larger market in the rest of the U.S. He said Washington’s plan won’t stop illegal growing because some consumers will want pot that isn’t governmentapproved and they definitely won’t want to pay taxes on it. The reform option Plecas said he would support is one where Canada and the U.S. make it free for individuals across their countries to grow their own pot and government takes no role in regulating or taxing it. There would no longer be a highly profitable market for mass cultivation, he said. “You’ve got no black market, you’ve got no organized crime and you’ve got nobody going to jail,” Plecas said. “But as long as it’s illegal elsewhere, we’re going to have grows.” What Washington’s initiative does

• Allows possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for adults over 21 effective Dec. 6. The state law change would be in conflict with federal drug laws. • Removes state law prohibitions against producing, processing and selling marijuana, subject to licensing and regulation. Further rules and details would be worked out over the next year, during which time the state would negotiate with federal authorities. • Imposes 25 per cent taxes on wholesale and retail sale of pot, with most revenue going to health care, drug treatment and education. • Directs state to amend impaired driving laws to include maximum THC levels.

Real estate numbers show reason for optimism: CADREB Robert Freeman The Progress

It’s a great time to buy a house in Chilliwack where prices are stable and there’s a wide selection of homes to choose from, according to the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board. CADREB President Cynthia Admiraal said while house sales are dropping in the metropolitan areas, the Chilliwack area again experienced a month of stronger home sales compared to last year. There were 183 sales recorded in September, compared to 175 in September last year. “Prices are remaining stable in Chilliwack and area,” Admiraal said, and stabilized prices “draw investors, so we are seeing investors taking advantage of the competitive prices and continued low interest rates.” She said the competitive prices and the wide selection of homes “creates an ideal buyers’ market.” “Buyers are able to seek out upgrades, and newer and larger homes in such a market, evidenced by the strong number of sales - 28 in the $300,000-$349,999 range - and the sale of 18 homes over the $500,000 mark,” she said. With the number of house sales up, and new listings coming down, there is a good stabilization of the market, Admiraal added. “That’s where you want to be,” she said, “as Chilliwack has never encountered the wild fluctuations and over-inflated prices that have occurred in the larger cities.” CADREB expects sales to increase in the coming year, and most likely into 2014 as well, but buying your dream home in time for Christmas is still feasible. “There are so many homes available at a variety of price points,” Admiraal said. “Whether you are a first-time buyer, someone who wants to take advantage of perfect conditions to move up, or an investor, it’s a great time to buy,” she said.

News Vigilance about vandalism lauded by city council Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Council expressed its appreciation to city staff at the Tuesday meeting in the wake of reduced vandalism costs in the third quarter report for 2012. Coun. Chuck Stam noted that monthly vandalism totals were “down significantly” overall from 2011 — except for the month of July, which

came in at $12,892. The damage ranged from graffiti or tagging, wire theft, replacing signs, to destruction of facilities, like memorial benches in parks and/or infrastructure. Repairs to the Cheam Centre parking lot alone in July cost the city $4,225. Vandalism costs for August and September were $8,413 and $6,000 respectively, which represent a big drop

it’s dealt with quickly, such as in the case of the Paramount.” Automated locks on washrooms are also making a difference, she said. “It means we don’t have to have the washrooms open all night any more,” Mayor Gaetz added. “Good on our staff for watching out for this kind of stuff.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

RV battery thefts in Yarrow a ‘mystery,’ RCMP say Eight batteries from recreational vehicles parked in residential driveways were stolen in Yarrow sometime Sunday night. Chilliwack RCMP were made aware of the thefts on Monday. “The motivation behind thefts of this nature is a bit of a mystery,” RCMP Const.

stand what had gone so terribly wrong. Berry had embarked on his military career with the best intentions. A big, strapping kid who played on both the offensive and defensive lines for the St. Thomas More football team, he hoped to continue his family’s history of public service to their country; he had relatives who had gone into politics and attained high positions in the civil service. Berry signed his military papers on his 17th birthday, turning his back on opportunities to play football at UBC or SFU. A few months after graduating from STM in 2001, he was on his way to CFB Petawawa for training. His second day of boot camp was Sept. 11. That day’s terror attacks changed the direction of Canada’s military instantly. The era of blue helmets and keeping the peace was over.

B

Kevin Berry knew something wasn’t quite right in his head when he began having dreams of starting his jeep by smashing babies against the fender. His colleagues in the 3rd Battalion on tour in Kabul, Afghanistan were experiencing similar disturbing imagery in their sleep, the side effect of antimalarial drugs they had to ingest for six months and the stress and strain of running patrols in a country where many didn’t welcome their presence, and buried bombs in their path. Sometimes they shared their tales of terror with each other. Often they snuffed them with alcohol. But never did they dare tell their superior officers. That, they all feared, would be viewed as weakness, malingering. It’s a stigma that follows soldiers even after they leave

the battlefield, says Berry, who grew up in Burnaby. When he returned to his base in Petawawa, Ont., from Afghanistan in February 2004, his mental health debrief consisted of a lecture in a hall filled with 300 fellow soldiers. After the psychologist asked if anyone had experienced nightmares or other mental issues nobody put up their hand. Nobody, says Berry, wanted to be put on the “bus of shame” to Ottawa for further counseling. Berry’s military career ended that September. The dark, disturbing dreams didn’t. Upon his return to British Columbia he started working as a guard for an armoured car company, hoping to eventually parlay that into a career as a police officer. But he couldn’t move forward in his civilian life as his military experience continued to haunt him. He couldn’t focus. He couldn’t sustain relationships. He couldn’t under-

A time to remember

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

This Sunday is Remembrance Day. It is an important time to mark the sacrifices of soldiers in many past wars, who have made Canada what it is today. Here in Chilliwack, there will be three opportunities to mark the day. There will be services at the cenotaphs downtown, at Vedder Crossing and at new Coqualeetza longhouse. All of these events will be focused primarily on the sacrifices made by the diminishing group of Second World War and Korean War veterans. They are the backbone of the veterans’ community locally, and their efforts from 1939-1945 and 1950-53 were very significant. Remembering takes on new importance as their ranks diminish due to aging. It’s good that many younger people in Chilliwack have taken this to heart in recent years, as attendance at Remembrance Day events has grown significantly. This ongoing interest in the very important role played by veterans is a gratifying sign that Canadians are remembering. But Remembrance Day has taken on new significance over the recent years. More than a decade of conflict in Afghanistan has meant sacrifice in our own generation. It is hoped there will be a good turnout for all these events. They are a reminder that those who died in war – both in the past and today – were young and missed much of their lives. They defended an ideal. The important role played by the military in preserving our way of life is often not well understood, but on many occasions, young people have risen to the call to serve. Some of them made the ultimate sacrifice, and it is our duty to remember them. It is the least that we can do.

The real smart meter manipulation in B.C.

VICTORIA – Two very different scenes unfolded at opposite ends of the province last week. In the remote northwest corner of B.C., the first power line towers started going up to connect Highway 37 communities to the BC Hydro grid. The Nisga’a, Tahltan and other aboriginal communities will soon have reliable power, as well as much-needed training and jobs during clearing and construction. Meanwhile down on the Gulf Islands, the most hysterical, dishonest campaign against smart meters I’ve heard of so far went into high gear. I’ve obtained a mass e-mail from the head anti-smart meter organizer on Salt Spring Island that shows the mentality at work here. (Corix is the BC Hydro contractor that has installed more than a million meters and has approached the Gulf Islands with trepidation, the

last area of B.C. to be done.) “Corix is attacking with 30 trucks on Mon the 22nd,” Chris Anderson wrote in October. “Poelpe [sic] are advised NOT to attend the Victoria pipeline rally but instead help defend agianst [sic] spymeter installations in their neighbourhoods.” Anderson’s selfTom appointed supFLETCHER porters fanned out across the island, attempting to turn away installers on the false assumption that everyone has fallen for their crackpot fear campaign. They managed to stop 12 per cent of the installations. Coincidentally, Anderson has been doing a brisk business selling $35 meter locks to gullible Salt Spring Islanders in recent months.

They don’t work, and you’re not allowed to lock BC Hydro property anyway. Others have been sold officiallooking “no smart meter” signs that don’t identify the customer, so they don’t work either. As for the term “spymeter,” I’ve reported on the weird theories spread by Bill Vander Zalm in a video interview, where he claims smart meters are part of a global surveillance system that can even tell what you’re cooking. Vander Zalm has been outdone by one Brian Thiesen, who styles himself as the “chairman” of “Interior Smart Meter Awareness.” In September, the Merritt Herald reported on Thiesen’s presentation to 20 unwary people in a church basement. He claimed wireless meters not only provide video surveillance of your house, they are also responsible for “dying bees” and “defective sperm and

eggs” as well as disease and fires. Thiesen even claimed radiofrequency signals can “pull your PIN number directly out of your head.” Is there no limit to the nonsense some people will fall for? Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis coauthored a study that shows residential fires have decreased with the advent of smart meters. Which brings me to the ugliest opposition to this modernization, the criminal element. Here in North America’s marijuana mecca, installers have encountered many meter bypasses, wired up to steal hydro and conceal high consumption for grow ops. In addition to being illegal, they are a fire hazard that is removed when discovered. Installers also find more sophisticated cases of hydro theft. Removing the mechanical meter reveals a hole cut in the back of

the case, so the dials can be turned back to hide a grow op’s power consumption. No wonder some people want to lock them down. Of course all of this is defeated by a smart grid system, so the growers and other crooks are angry. A BC Hydro official told me about one case where a user was told he had a bypass, and that it was being removed. His bill went from next to nothing to a reasonable level. The customer complained to the media, falsely inflating the amount of his bill and blaming an inaccurate smart meter.

No ‘smoking gun’ in salmon debate On Oct. 31, with considerable fanfare, Justice Cohen released his long awaited report into the causes of the poor 2009 Fraser River sockeye salmon return. At nearly 1,200 pages and with 75 recommendations to government, the report covers a wide range of issues. Principal among them are the negative impacts of warming oceans and the non-implementation of DFO’s wild salmon policy. Justice Cohen was very clear in stating that there was no single cause and no “smoking gun” to explain the 2009 run.  It is a gross oversimplification of

this complex issue to assume the report zeroed in on any one factor. In contrast to Cohen’s cautious but clear message are the responses from those opposed to aquaculture, who spin the report as an indictment of salmon farming. In fact, the report commends B.C. salmon farmers for collecting and providing an impressive 10-year fish health database that allowed commission-appointed experts to conclude that there was no correlation between the health of farmed salmon and the decline of the sockeye. In fairness, the reviewers called for

even more data so that with more information, a firmer conclusion of “unlikely effect” can be applied to this issue. Salmon farmers expected to be asked to voluntarily provide fish health data in an ongoing fashion and we embrace this recommendation as well as those describing the Discovery Islands research project. The public wants to be assured that salmon farming does not put sockeye salmon at risk and we intend to meet that request. Clare Backman, board member, BC Salmon Farmers Association

Concern over foreign influence Open letter to MP Mark Strahl: I hope that this letter finds you in good health and spirit. As a concerned local constituent I was a part of a demonstration of more than 40 people from Chilliwack and Hope at your office on Wednesday, October 31. I was disappointed that you were unable to speak with us, or provide a statement to be read at the demonstration.  It was a fun event, but a great deal of work went into it and we raised some serious issues regarding policy decisions  of your government. As a group we took a photo and agreed to have me send you this letter in the hopes that you won’t shirk your responsibility as

our elected official to hear, and respond to, our concerns. Many local residents are deeply concerned about your government’s use of omnibus legislation, trade agreements, and tax breaks to further corporate expansion and export of tar sands mining projects and the implications this has  for local communities along Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. Your government has supported omnibus bills to dismantle environmental  legislation, such as the Fisheries Act and the Navigable Waters Act. This means that Kinder Morgan’s pipeline application will no longer be subject to a  thorough environ-

mental assessment. In Chilliwack that means a total disregard for the risks associated with transporting tar sands bitumen through pipelines that cross our local drinking water aquifer and the Fraser and Vedder Rivers — waterways that are central to the identity of our community.  Given the risks, and the lack of economic benefit for British Columbians, residents are questioning your government’s ability to represent us. Similarly, your support for agreements like the ChinaCanada Foreign Investor Protection and Promotion Agreement (FIPA) without a debate about the implications for local communities is

truly alarming. It suggests you care more about the interests of foreign corporations than you do your own neighbours. For every person who was standing with a sign at your office on Halloween, there were at least 10 honks and waves of support from people driving by. We are writing you this letter to be clear that you have a responsibility as a paid elected official to respond to our concerns. We truly hope that as someone with roots in this community you will join us in taking a stand for Chilliwack to ensure that this region is a thriving, sustainable and healthy place for generations to come.  Sheila Muxlow

Cabby says thanks for accident response I was in a three-car pile up with my cab the other day. I got broad-sided. I didn’t know what happened until the police   came to the hospital. The fire department had to pry open the car to get me out door.

Luckily nothing was broken, but I messed up my back. I was on a back board and neck brace for almost three hours. I just   remember driving, and then bang, ditch, weeds, sky, hospital ceiling, X-rays, massive pain, needle.

All good. just bruised up a bit.   All the ambulance, police, firemen and hospital staff were great. I would just like to say thank you. Top-notch public servants we’ve got in Chilliwack.

Corrections says it’s acting on inquest jury’s recommendations Robert Freeman The Progress

The Correctional Service of Canada has answered questions posed by The Progress following a BC Coroner’s inquest into the death of a Mountain Institution inmate two years ago. A CSC spokesperson in Ottawa answered the questions by email, which arrived after the newspaper’s Monday deadline, so were not included in the story published Tuesday. In an earlier story, a CSC media relations officer had said the CSC is reviewing all five recommendations made by the inquest jury, including mandatory placement of “dangerous” offenders in single cells instead of double-bunking them. But the spokesperson said “significant changes” had already been made by the CSC since the Nov. 22, 2010 death of inmate Jeremy Phillips, but she could not detail the changes. Phillips, 33, was strangled to death in his cell by Michael Wayne McGray, 45, a self-proclaimed sociopath who was convicted on six counts of murder, but claimed many more. McGray pleaded guilty to killing Phillips one week after he was transferred from Kent maximum-

security prison to the mediumsecurity Mountain Institution. Veronique Rioux, the CSC media relations officer in Ottawa, said in the email that as a result of Phillips’ death the CSC has: • enhanced the process by which inmates are transferred from special handling units (SHU) to maximum-security institutions; • strengthened Correctional Intervention Boards with respect to the review of transfers of complex cases; • started tracking accountabilities through the ongoing review and monitoring of procedures for cell placements; • implemented an additional offender count during lockdown status at Mountain Institution. Phillips’ was killed shortly after 10 p.m., according to McGray, and his body was not discovered for 12 hours when the morning head count was made. In response to a Progress question about the CSC’s mandate to rehabilitate inmates, in part by “cascading” them to lower-security facilities as their behaviour improves, Rioux said the CSC “contributes to public safety by actively encouraging and assisting offenders to become lawabiding citizens, while exercising reasonable, safe, secure and

humane control.” But regarding the transfer of offenders to lower-security, she referred to current CSC policies that detail the complex procedures and authorities required before a dangerous offender is moved to a lower-security facility. Rioux confirmed disciplinary action was taken against individuals connected to the incident, but, citing privacy reasons, did not disclose details of the discipline nor the positions of those who were disciplined. In addition to “mandatory” single-cell accommodation for multiple murderers, the coroner’s jury also asked the CSC to consider: • ensuring recommendations by a CSC board of investigations be followed; • making available to all line staff all information regarding inmates prior to an approved transfer; • authorizing wardens to make exceptions to the wait list for single cells in order to move more dangerous offenders into them, or to delay the transfer until a single cell is available; • reviewing a policy regarding flashlight intensity and exploring alternate technologies to detect inmates’ body heat.

Neighbours Linda and Dennis Rook: ‘Dynamic duo’ I have always appreciated and admired people who are passionate about something in their lives. Their passion becomes fulfilling, enriching and in some cases, is good for society and indeed humanity. Linda and Dennis Rook are two such individuals and their level of enthusiasm, commitment and dedication to the Rotary Youth Exchange program is infectious. The couple became involved with the program nine years ago and have never looked back. “It is one of the most rewarding things that we’ve ever done,” they said in agreement. Both Linda and Dennis were raised in small towns. The couple laughs because although G TLIGHT BOOMIN SS SPO BUSINE

Linda comes from a small community, Dennis was raised in an even tinier hamlet of about 150 people. “My family eventually moved to Wadena, Saskatchewan where the population was 1800. It’s a great community and Senator Pamela Wallin is from Wadena. My father taught her,” he said proudly. He quickly added that his father served as a teacher, bandmaster and music instructor in the community. “I had to call him Mr. Rook,” he laughed. Linda was an only child who enjoyed a rather happy childhood. “It was very pleasant. My grandmother helped to raise me because both of my parents always worked. My father made school desks,” she mentioned, with nostalgic flair. In those days, rural Saskatchewan didn’t have the same amenities that are enjoyed today. “There was no TV to watch so we had to make our own fun. We were always outside playing games,” said Dennis. Linda added, “There weren’t a lot of

organized things to do so we did create our own stuff. Besides, even if there had been things to do, our parents wouldn’t have been able to afford them.” Linda was very active in school sports; namely track and field, basketAna ball and Macedo volleyball while Dennis was involved in track, volleyball, football and drama. Both were a part of their church choir and for a time, Dennis was also a member of the army cadets. After high school, Linda left for the University of Michigan where she studied physical education and geography. “I was married and into my third year of studies when my son came along so I had to quit. We then moved to Quebec but this was during the time that Rene Levesque came into power. There was the whole thing about sovereignty association which led us to pack up and leave that province,” she said. They moved to Kitchener and then Thunder Bay. Eventually, Linda and her husband divorced and she wound up falling in love with a rather dashing fellow who happened to be the Bank of Montreal’s branch manager in that city. The couple married and moved to Saskatchewan. “We were in Regina for 13 years and I was working for BMO but moved to the Lower Mainland in 1999. Things had become a bit strange and everyone at the branch was always looking over their shoulder, wondering who was going to go next. It was enough. I applied for and got a job with First Heritage as their Senior Commercial Account Manager. I’m now retired, of course.” Linda began working for CIBC while still in Regina and transitioned to the local branch when the couple moved here. “I have been with CIBC for 16 years now and

am a Financial Services Associate,” she said. Shortly after arriving in Chilliwack, Dennis was asked to join Rotary. Four years later, a little nudge and a prod changed the couple’s life forever. “Wil Huitema was looking for host families for the Rotary Youth Exchange. She gave me a flyer so that I could show Linda and four weeks later, she was still looking for families. We ended up hosting Anita from Switzerland. We fell in love with Anita and with the program,” said Dennis with enthusiasm, as Linda nodded in agreement. Since then, the couple has hosted 8 students and in their home, a bedroom door known as the ‘famous exchange door’, proudly displays world flags representing those students who have graced the Rook household. By 2004, Dennis had become heavily involved in the program at the District level. Three years later, he began chairing the committee and was also the ‘in-bound’ coordinator which meant that he was in communication with any student who was interested in the exchange program in this Rotary District. “Half of our District is in Canada while the other half is in the US. There’s a lot of paperwork involved and after 9/11, the process began to change. The Rotary Exchange Program is not the only worldwide exchange program and governments need to ensure that processes are followed precisely. I did this for three years,” he said. By 2010, it was time for Dennis to step down from his role in the program but he continues to be involved as an ex-officio member of the District committee. Linda, meanwhile, was just not ready to give up her hands-on involvement in the program so she joined Rotary herself and aside from acting as her club’s secretary, she’s also a Youth Exchange officer. “As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, these kids spend a year living with host families and attending school in

Memory Project collecting oral histories of Canada’s veterans Wanda Chow Black Press

While some funding for The Memory Project will be ending in March, the work will continue to preserve oral histories of aging veterans for future generations. In the past year, the project has added more than 350 interviews with Korean War veterans to its online archive and a similar number for Second World War veterans. While funding from the federal Department of Canadian Heritage will end for the interviews about Second World War experiences, the Historica-Dominion Institute will continue the work, said Alex Herd, project manager for the Memory Project.  Herd noted that while Second World War veterans are often willing to be interviewed, sometimes with the encouragement of their families, it can be more challenging to get Korean War veterans to participate. That’s largely due to the fact that for decades,

they were not even considered war veterans.  That war, which took place between 1950 and 1953, was officially deemed a “police action” by then-U.S. President Harry Truman for political and diplomatic reasons, Herd explained. While the veterans experienced war-like conditions, it was not considered a war and afterwards, they didn’t receive the same benefits as their counterparts from the Second World War. It wasn’t until after years of lobbying that Korean War veterans were publicly recognized by the federal government as war veterans in the early 1990s. That’s all contributed to a reticence among many such veterans to share their stories, Herd said.  The project “is part of our effort to give them the respect they’ve been due, to encourage them to come forward and share their stories, to show them they’re valued members of society and their stories are valued parts of our history,” he

said, “and also to educate all Canadians of all generations and backgrounds on what has been a war that’s been neglected in our historical instruction at every level in the country.” He noted that people in Korea continue to be very grateful for Canadians’

efforts in keeping that country free. The project has also digitized more than 1,600 artifacts for its archives. They borrow artifacts from veterans they interview and photograph or scan them for inclusion in the online archive before returning them.

Such artifacts include photos, medals, pieces of shrapnel and communist propaganda. One intriguing piece was a Chinese coin picked up on the battlefield by a Korean War veteran who was eventually wounded and bled on the coin. For some

reason, he never cleaned the blood off. Others came from a Second World War veteran who was in prisonerof-war camps in Italy and Germany. To pass the time he drew comics to entertain himself and his fellow prisoners, which are now reproduced and

in the archives, as is a piece of his ration bread that he received in the camp, which he kept in a bag as a memento all these years. The Memory Project is still seeking veterans. For info visit www. thememor yproject.com or call 1-866-701-1867.

Berry wasn’t phased. “I was excited,” he says. “We’re not going to be suntanning in Bosnia anymore.” From boot camp he was dispatched to battle school in Meaford, Ont. where he learned the basics of armed combat, field tactics and survival. Alas, coping wasn’t on the curriculum. Berry served in Afghanistan for six months, running “presence patrols” from a jeep in Kabul, providing security to engineering crews digging wells, and building schools. It was, he says, “just like the wild west. “There was no easing into the situation.” One memorable day, the city was rocked by 18 suicide bombings. During the course of his tour, three fellow Canadian soldiers were killed. “It’s part of the job,” says Berry. “You prepare for it, but you’re not really prepared for it until it happens.” On those tough days, Berry says the canteen would be particularly liberal putting out balms of the bottled variety, a solace that followed him and many other veterans into their civilian lives. When his aspirations for a policing career careened off course, Berry got work as a doorman at nightclubs, hoping to progress his way into bar management. The job gave him easy access to alcohol. For six years he took full advantage, often drinking himself into unconsciousness to turn off the nightly terrors. “That’s the go-to self medication for a lot of guys,” says Berry. “I didn’t ask for help. I didn’t want that hanging over my head.” It’s only when he found himself acting out a dream of handto-hand combat on his girlfriend lying next to him in bed that he realized he was bottoming out. “I couldn’t pretend everything

was okay anymore,” says Berry, who was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in 2010. “I caved. I went to Veterans Affairs.” He wanted help. What he got instead was a cheque. The New Veterans Charter that had been enacted by Parliament in 2006 did away with long term pension and support programs for disabled veterans. Instead, they’d get a one-time payment, leaving it to the disabled veterans to use that money to get the help they needed. For most, that money was considerably less than they’d earn with a pension. “I felt abandoned, betrayed, hopeless, gutted,” says Berry, who used his money to pay off some debts instead of getting counseling. “I lost the will to live a lot of days.” Hurt and angered, he started to focus his energy on righting that wrong. He reached out in online support networks. He wrote letters and articles. He advocated for veterans in similar situations. He joined the Equitas

Society, a B.C. based group fighting for better disability benefits for injured soldiers. On Tuesday, the group filed a class action law suit in B.C. Supreme Court alleging the Canadian government discriminates against its soldiers financially, violating their constitutional rights. It’s a fight that last week received some unexpected support from Canada’s AuditorGeneral, who criticized the Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs for failing to ensure all former military personnel receive proper follow-up and care after their careers. Sober now for 18 months, Berry is on the long road to changing the system from the inside. He’s studying history part time at Simon Fraser University with a long term hope to perhaps some day enter politics. “I’m always going to be a soldier,” he says. “But to be told there’s no help. I’ve already made sacrifices; how much more do you want me to give?”

New bike park opens — when the weather is right Delayed by high water this year in the Fraser River, the new Bike Park at the Island 22 regional district park is now open. But use of the long-awaited facility, designed with enough jumps, pump tracks, and obstacles to challenge all riders, regardless of experience, is subject to weather conditions.

However, to prevent damage to the facility, and potential injuries to riders, the bike park will only open during “optimum” weather conditions. The operational status of the park will be posted at the park entrance, and on the FVRD website. “We are extremely excited to see

The site needs 2 to 3 days of dry weather before it can be used. The Fraser Valley Regional District, which built the park in partnership with the City of Chilliwack, is optimistic that weather conditions will improve soon, allowing riders to enjoy the park throughout the fall, winter and spring seasons.

the bike park completed,” Sharon Gaetz, Chilliwack mayor and FVRD chair, said in a news release. “This is an opportunity for riders of all ages and riding abilities to enjoy a unique opportunity within our regional district,” she said. George Murray, FVRD CAO, said without the City contributing “the

lion’s share of the funding, we would not have been able to build this bike park, and especially not to this standard.” Chilliwack contributed $200,000 for the design and construction of the bike park; the FVRD will contribute $10,000 annually for maintenance costs.

War artists paint the navy’s first 100 years An exhibition of 46 paintings from some of Canada’s leading war artists opened to the public on Nov. 6 as part of Remembrance Week events at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria.  The Navy: A Century in Art, a national tour organized by the Canadian War Museum to mark the Navy’s Centennial, captures times of war and peace from the First World War to the present day. The exhibition runs until Jan. 27, 2013.  “The Navy occupies a prominent position in the life and history of British Columbia,” said Professor Jack Lohman, CEO of the Royal BC Museum. “Each painting in this important exhibition takes people on a journey to explore the dramatic events and touching personal stories of the Canadian Navy over the past century.”   The exhibition features works drawn from the Canadian War Museum’s unparalleled Beaverbrook Collection of War Art and includes paintings by Arthur Lismer, Alex Colville, Harold Beament, Ted Zuber, and other official and unofficial war artists.   “This exhibition shows how geography, history and war have shaped the navy through its first century of service. The diverse roles, traditions, and key moments in the life of this national institution are captured through the eyes of some of Canada’s finest painters,” said James Whitham, Director General of the Canadian War Museum. “We are pleased to be able to share this exhibition with visitors to the Royal BC Museum.” War artist Tom Wood accompanied the Normandy invasion force on June 6, 1944. In his tension-filled oil on canvas, D-Day, he depicts landing craft heading to

shore loaded with Canadian troops. In the distance fires are burning in the French village of Bernières-sur-Mer, a result of the Allied naval bombardment and the clash to seize the village. The test of battle is also evident in Torpedoed, North Atlantic (1947), Paul Alexander Goranson’s gripping portrayal of survivors of a Second World War U-boat attack.   In Rainbow in Esquimalt (1971), the

submarine HMCS Rainbow and other vessels crowd the docks as artist Barbara Greene depicts a typical scene at the Navy’s west coast home port.   The Navy remains a potent symbol of Canadian identity. Exhibition curators turn to Arthur Lismer’s emotional Olympic with Returned Soldiers (1919), to leave visitors to ponder the Navy’s legacy as it moves into a new century of service.

Local Canadian Tire dealership earns national Award of Excellence Chilliwack’s Canadian Tire dealership has earned recognition shared by only two other dealerships in the country this year. It was recently awarded the company’s Award of Excellence – the highest honour that any Canadian Tire store

Canadian Tire staff celebrate Award of Excellence.

YOUR DOLLAR GOES FURTHER.

For example, the Chilliwack store is a strong proponent of Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program which provides sport and recreational opportunities to youth who might not otherwise be able to afford them. The store was also recognized for its support of local sporting organizations at all levels, including the minor sports teams and Chilliwack Chiefs, as well as the Chilliwack Cultural Centre and the Fraser Valley Philharmonic Society. Nadeau first opened his Chilliwack dealership on May 19, 1999. Since then, the store has doubled its size and undergone a major reorganization in 2010 to better serve its customers. More change is coming, Nadeau says. There are plans to redesign the store layout, making it more vibrant and more exciting for cus-

tomers. “Retail is always in motion,” he says enthusiastically. And certainly Nadeau is no stranger to the business. His father owned a Canadian Tire dealership for 20 years. Today his two children, Charles and Melissa, both chose careers with Canadian Tire after university. “It’s a family business for sure,” he says with a laugh. The experience has taught him the importance of having a good team. The Chilliwack dealership has about 80 people on staff, including the automotive team in its 10-bay service department. To show his appreciation, Nadeau recently took out his entire staff to Frankie’s Italian Kitchen. “My name may be on this [award],” he says, “but it belongs to the whole team.”

Further home price dips forecast for next year

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Greater Vancouver’s average home prices should drop nearly two per cent next year after falling 5.9 per cent in 2012, according to a new housing forecast from the B.C. Real Estate Association. The weakness in the real estate market is projected to be softest in single detached houses next year, with a 2.7 per cent drop to $1.09 million in the average price paid in Greater Vancouver in 2013. Attached homes are projected to decline 0.7 per cent in average price to $555,000, while condos would gain 0.3 per cent to $443,000. The BCREA report cautions those average prices were skewed up in 2011 by a spate of high-end home

can attain. “It’s like the Academy Awards,” says a humble, but extremely proud owner Marcel Nadeau. With more than 500 dealerships across Canada, being chosen as Canadian Tire’s western representative is an honour, Nadeau says. But it’s not his alone. “It is a total team effort,” he insists. “We are very fortunate, my wife [Stella] and I, to be blessed with such a great team.” The award recognizes “outstanding focus on customer service, retail leadership, store team development and outreach in the community.” Since opening the first Canadian Tire store in Chilliwack over 13 years ago, Nadeau has helped shape the local Canadian Tire store’s presence in the community through his support of several charities and organizations, the company says.

sales in the Vancouver area. More typical homes in the region didn’t run up as fast as the average, nor have they slipped as much since the peak, it said, adding most home prices should remain “essentially flat” through 2013. Sales are expected to rebound by almost 14 per cent after falling by an estimated 20 per cent in 2012. Demand from buyers has ebbed since the federal government imposed tighter mortgage qualification rules. Those measures, aimed to curb rising levels of consumer debt, were equivalent to a one per cent jump in mortgage rates for first-time buyers, according to economists at the BCREA.

The report cautions that fluctuation mainly reflects changes in the mix of homes selling and that typical homes, tracked through benchmark prices, have shown “only modest change” since the end of 2009.

This Steinway piano, owned by Glen Cuthbertson (pictured), is nearly 100 years old and was restored by him when he bought it in 1996. Cuthbertson customized the piano both acoustically (by adding a Wapin bridge to enrich its sound) and cosmetically. The piano will be featured on Nov. 17 in the CMO Russian Masterworks concert at the Cultural Centre. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

A special Steinway piano in CMO concert spotlight Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

The Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra presents Russian Masterworks on Nov. 17 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Polish-born concert pianist Krystyna Tuka will be the featured guest soloist, performing the enduringly popular Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2.  “The mighty Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra will be tackling three giants of Russian composition, Glinka, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky,” said CMO member and spokesperson Anne Fleming. The fall concert, under the baton of Maestro Johan Louwersheimer,

will also showcase a very special Steinway grand piano, which has been graciously loaned to the orchestra for the evening by the local owner and musician, Glen Cuthbertson. “At almost nine feet in length, this piano can easily fill a large concert hall and hold its own with a full symphony,” says Fleming. It is considered the flagship instrument of Steinway and Sons. In fact, the Steinway D-274 is the piano of choice for many concert performers, and this one, built in 1915, and lovingly restored by Cuthbertson of Chilliwack, and will moved to the main stage for the performance. Rachmaninoff became a “Steinway artist” and would only

perform on a Steinway.  “He purchased two Steinways for himself in New York and they were often played in duets by Rachmaninoff and his good friend Vladimir Horowitz. Coincidently, the Cuthbertson piano is serial numbered between the two Rachmaninoff pianos.”  The Polish-born pianist Tuka, with a master’s degree in piano performance, has studied in both Poland and Paris and is an international guest soloist. She has won numerous prestigious piano competitions and is currently teaching at the Vancouver Academy of Music. The concerto she’ll play was composed by Rachmaninoff in 1900 and the complete work was

first performed by the composer in November of 1901. This marked the end of his clinical depression period, after critics savaged his first concerto, and writer’s block. He dedicated the piece to the doctor who helped him regain his confidence, noted Fleming. The Rachmaninof f Piano Concerto can be enjoyed by both classical music aficionados and by less experienced listeners, she said. Two well-known melodies that pay tribute to the concerto appear in the song All By Myself by Eric Carmen, and Empty Arms made popular by Frank Sinatra.  Also on the evening’s program will be the Ruslan and Ludmilla

Overture by Mikhail Glinka and Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5.  Glinka, known as the father of Russian composition in the early romantic period, managed to blend Western and Russian styles with Russian folk themes. Pyotr Tchaikovsky openly acknowledged his debt to Glinka. Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 has been described as “darkly Russian with broad, arching melodies.” The third movement balletic theme reminds some listeners of the waltz from Sleeping Beauty. Russian Masterworks concert by Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra, Nov. 17, tickets $25 and students $15 on the main stage at the Cultural Centre, 7:30 p.m., at the box office or 604-391-SHOW.

Auditions for Treasure Island next Tuesday Theatre Junkies Anonymous is holding auditions for an upcoming production of Treasure Island on Tuesday Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. Actors and performers of all experience levels, ages and backgrounds are invited to come to audition for the pirate adventure story, adapted by Ara Watson from the Robert Louis Stevenson classic. Treasure Island is being directed by Theatre Junkies Artistic Director Megan Mackenzie, who directed their successful production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe last spring. “Treasure Island is an adventure-packed show full of energetic characters and swashbuckling sword fights,” says Mackenzie. “The roles available for actors in this production are incredible. Think of the iconic young narrator Jim Hawkins and the cunning and villainous Captain Long John Silver. But there are a variety of roles to be filled in this cast of 15 performers.” Local actor Gabby Bohmer is the production’s Assistant Director. This show is a theatre for young audiences production, meaning that it is intended for families and audiences of all ages. “Theatre Junkies is committed to producing theatre that will be meaningful and memorable for all ages,” says Mackenzie, “and we couldn’t think of a better production than Treasure Island to bring to the stage this spring.” Treasure Island will run from May 22-26 at the UFV Theatre on Yale Rd.

An eclectic Saturday night of music is in store at Bozzini’s on Nov. 10 with the return of the incomparable C.R. Avery. A hiphop harmonica player, beatbox poet, piano player, raconteur, and playwright, Avery’s incredible performances have been described as “Bob Dylan in the body of Iggy Pop; colliding with Little Walter, the Beastie Boys and Allen Ginsberg.” Every show is all or nothing and his fearless approach both on stage and in the studio will contribute to his staying power as an artist.

REMEMBRANCE DAY NOVEMBER 11, 2012

When we give our lives in the name of

Inventory of wars in contemporary history Remembrance Day is an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices that today’s soldiers make and on the sacrifices of all those who preceded them.

The deadliest war: The Great War of 1914-1918 is the greatest drama known to Europe in terms of the number of deaths. The totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century and the Second World War are the direct consequences of this war. But it was the Second World War that was the deadliest, with more than 55 million deaths, of which 30 million were civilian. The most remembered war: This is the Second World War because of the atom bombs dropped on Japan and because it left its mark on three generations. Fortunately, those who remember it also remember the slogan “No more war!”

In honour of those who saved the world

The bloodiest battle in Canadian history: The Battle of the Somme took place from July 1 to the end of November, 1916. On the first day of this battle, the 1st Newfoundland Regiment was virtually annihilated in the village of Beaumont. Machine guns, barbed wire, trenches, and massive artillery shelling resulted in ferocious fighting marked by heavy losses. Some 24,713 Canadians and Newfoundlanders died in the battle. The largest naval battle: The greatest naval concentration of contemporary history was deployed in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean area on September 21, 2007. This unprecedented demonstration of power by the United States against Iran included three aircraft carriers supported by about 40 escort vessels and nearly 100 aircraft.

Red and white poppies

Canadian pacifist groups are working together to spread the tradition of the white poppy from England to Canada.

Wearing a red poppy for Remembrance Day on November 11 has been a tradition in this country for 90 years now. The white poppy, dating from 1933, has recently resurfaced, however. It is a way to remember the civilian victims of war. The two complement each other: the red for those who died for their country, the white for the hope of peace. Did you know that behind these poppy campaigns, both past and present, are some very committed women? The adoption of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance has international origins. The first person to use it in this way was Mrs. Moina Michael, a staff member of the American Overseas YMCA, during the last year of the First World War. In April 1920 she led a stirring campaign to have the poppy recognized as the official symbol of remembrance by the American Legion. At the same time, Mrs. Anna Guérin, from France, became an ardent defender of the poppy as the symbol that would help all citizens remember those who died in the war. The efforts of these two ladies were not in vain. The first “poppy day” was held on November 11, 1921, in France as well as in Commonwealth countries. Ninety years later, the poppy is still a reminder to us all. But we mustn’t forget that on November 11, 1933, the Women’s Cooperative Guild in the United Kingdom launched the white poppy campaign, symbolizing the will to work towards creating a world without violence, to resolve conflicts peacefully, and to remember civilian victims of war.

In life one man can seldom see His impact in society Our soldiers fight to blinded eyes To allow us all to live our lives Taking up arms against a foe To save us from the pain they know To give us all out liberty They bear the brunt of misery No greater duty can one bear An act of courage few would dare Endless sacrifices for 4 years Keeping back our greatest fears November 11th is a day of love To remember those now up above Men and women far too great To be remembered upon one date No words bring justice to their fight But I will try with all my might To bring them honour for the days They fought to alay such evil ways No act of love could be so grand As one brave soldier’s final stand So now I will say at last We must remember what has past Those who have died and those who live And all the thanks to them we give They are all those who meet the call Preserving good for one and all So on this day I ask you pray For heroes of our memory Thank for your sacrifice It was this act that gave us life.

REMEMBRANCE DAY NOVEMBER 11, 2012 “In Flanders Fields” In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. To this day McCrae’s poem remains among the most memorable war poems ever written. It also paved the way for the poppy flower to be one of the most recognized symbols of wartime remembrance. Thousands of poppies are placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and Remembrance Day participants wear poppies on their lapels.

When we give our lives in the name of

REMEMBRANCE DAY NOVEMBER 11, 2012

A place of reflection During the month of November many Canadians, veterans, war widows, and family members take part in annual pilgrimages to the fields of battle abroad. Of course, this custom does not often include the general public, but it is still possible to perpetuate this tradition in a tangible way by visiting one of the war memorials in your area. There are more than 6,600 memorials across Canada commemorating veterans and those who lost their lives. On November 11, Remembrance Day, why not take your family to a park or cemetery to visit a war memorial? Make the most of this moment to teach the younger generation about the importance of honouring those who sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today. This is also a marvellous opportunity to teach your children more about the work carried out by

Thank you for your courage and our freedom

historical societies in communities across the country. Indeed, it is these societies who often help to pass on this heritage to those Canadians willing to listen. Your local historical society will be able to share literature and maybe even personal stories about the people from your town who went away to fight. The Canadian government has developed programs to ensure that the cenotaphs and other monuments erected to the memory of those who lost their lives are maintained in an appropriate manner and that military events comprise all the suitable pomp ceremony. These programs also aim to help communities organize moments of silence in honour of fallen soldiers, a central feature of any Remembrance Day ceremony.

With retirement and long term care residences across Canada, Chartwell prides itself on providing exceptional care and services to seniors, including many veterans who served in WWII.   “It’s a small gesture that shows our gratitude and appreciation for the large sacrifices our veterans made to keep our country free,” said Brent Binions, President and CEO of Chartwell Seniors Housing. “Chartwell is committed to ensuring that their legacy lives on in future generations and, while we have the opportunity, that we never stop saying thank you to them for their courage and contributions.” In 2010, Chartwell published a book entitled HONOUR, which featured the photos and profiles of individuals who were veterans or supported the war effort and who lived in a Chartwell residence. Thirty five breathtaking photos by renowned photographer Yuri Dojc accompanied intimate stories of their personal experiences. Last year, Chartwell

released the documentary HONOUR: Their Stories, Our History, which included the humble and moving interviews that were conducted as part of the making of the book. Copies of the book and DVD have been donated to schools across Canada in an effort to ensure this important history is passed on to future generations. “At Lynnwood many employees comment on the fact that learning about the past life of our residents is one of the most interesting and fulfilling aspects of working with seniors,” says Judu, General Manager at Lynnwood. “By offering veterans in the community a complimentary Tea, we are offering both our appreciation and our interest in learning their stories as well.”    Chartwell Seniors Housing owns and operates retirement homes and long term care homes across North America.  The Tea will be held November 9th  2 P.M. @ the Lynnwood.

Lest we forget those who served..

. . and continue to serve. We must always remember those who served with honour and courage, especially the men and women who gave their lives to defend our freedom. May we never take for granted the important contribution these brave people have made to this great country, called Canada. To all who served and continue to serve, as well as their fine families, we respectfully offer our gratitude.

A FABULOUS ESTATE AUCTION SUNDAY NOV 11TH AT NOON AND MONDAY NOV 12TH AT 6PM PREVIEW SUNDAY NOV 11TH 10 AM - NOON

Fort Langley Community Hall 9167 Glover Rd., Langley, BC.

Featuring:

Local artist Max Newhouse speaks to children at Cultus Lake elementary after donating about 70 books (in foreground) to the school last Tuesday. Newhouse was one of three judges for the Governor General’s 2012 Literary Awards for children’s illustration and was given about 90 books to judge. After heading to Ottawa in August and judging the entries with two other artists, he decided to give the majority of the children’s books to the school, and keep about 20 of them for his grandchildren and for his own collection. The five short-listed books are ‘Big City Bees’ by Renné Benoit, ‘House Held Up by Trees’ by Jon Klassen, ‘In the Bag! Margaret Knight Wraps it Up’ by David Parkins, ‘Virginia Wolf’ by Isabelle Arsenault, and ‘Picture a Tree’ by Barbara Reid. The winner will be announced on Nov. 13. Newhouse was asked to judge this year’s award after being nominated for the same award in 2006 for his book ‘Let’s Go For a Ride’. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Ballet Kelowna presents Double Variations newly commissioned score by the fabulous Vancouver composer James Maxwell, this ballet is sure to become a favorite. Orlando, also an accomplished dancer, has trained at the National Ballet School in Toronto, has been a member of The National Ballet of Canada and has been featured in dances from New York to Toronto, Vancouver to Kelowna. Her choreography contrasts nicely with Laughlin’s unique contemporar y style, which is formed from a background in gymnastics. He not only choreographs ballet but opera, theatre and TV as well, and has been featured around the world, including the United Kingdom, Europe, South Africa and South Korea. Double Variations is a ballet that is both beautiful and technically challenging. Presented by The Chilliwack Ar ts & Cultural Centre Society, Double Variations is a rich and textured evening of dance based on each choreographer’s individual movement style and interpretation of the composer’s musical themes and variations. Inspirational,  Ballet Kelowna educates and entertains through the energy and artistry of dance. With the goal of enhancing the image of ballet, making the art form more inviting, fun and personally meaningful, Ballet Kelowna

Breathtakingly beautiful Ballet Kelowna is mesmerizing families across Western Canada with its own signature company of talented ballet dancers. Under the direction of Artistic Director David LaHay, this exciting Canadian choreography comes to The Chilliwack Cultural Centre on November 24 at 7:30 p.m. with Ballet Kelowna and the dynamic new ballet, Double Variations. Celebrating its 10th anniversary with this sensational diverse and exciting program, Ballet Kelowna passionately performs a mosaic of classical and contemporar y dances with power and grace in this magnificent performance. A program of contrasts and collaborations: Double Variations is a combination of good versus evil with Swan Lake’s White and Black Swan pas de deux, which was originally conceived from Russian folk tales about Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse. The ultimate battle of ballerina egos emerges as the story of destiny and despair is portrayed. Inspired by a masterwork from the great Canadian dance legacy, Lignes et Pointes (1975), Double Variations is cochoreographed by two of Vancouver’s most exciting and diverse talents, Simone Orlando and Joe Laughlin.

In 2011, approximately 1,027,900 jobs in British Columbia were derived from small business, accounting for 45 per cent of total employment in the province. However, with the uncertain global economic climate we can’t afford to rest on the laurels of our recent successes.

Over the past 14 years more than 600 Chilliwack and surrounding area couples, at all ages and stages, have attended and benefited from the Building Healthy Relationships weekend workshops (10 hours between Friday night and Saturday day). As you might recall from previous articles, the BHR is a community-based collective of agencies (including MCFD and Ann Davis), churches, universities and individuals concerned about promoting healthy couple

relationships through evidence-based couple and marital research and education. Two of the main facilitators Eryn happen WICKER to be colleagues of mine from Child and Youth Mental Health, Esther Groenhof (who has been with the BHR since its inception 14

years ago) and Mark Vegh (who has now been facilitating workshops the past five years). I recently spoke with the two of them to find out their favourite skill from each workshop as the new season of BHR workshops kick off this fall. The Couples Communication Workshop focuses on how we communicate with each other and how hearing and listening are vastly different. According to Esther, couples learn “just how

much of a gift it is to be listened to by their partner...and they discover listening is hard work! Focusing on someone else’s experience without jumping in with your own thoughts or opinions right away actually burns calories, slows down communication which is key to avoiding assumptions and misunderstandings, and significantly reduces conflict.” And Mark’s favourite skill is the almost classical “I” statements, which “train us to talk about our own experience

rather than focussing on assumptions we have about our partners, they force increased personal awareness, and in turn helps one stay calm enough to get to know their spouse’s view on things.” The Handling Conflict Workshop, based on the work by Dr. John Gottman, delves deeper into the impact each individual can have on the relationship by their thinking, feelings, perceptions, and past. Mark noted that the tool that stands out to him

, e c n a h c t las est offer s b

is the importance of taking care of yourself during conflict rather than trying to force your partner to take care of you. “More than half of the time is spent working on self-soothing, building a positive perception of your spouse, accepting influence from your spouse without resentment or losing personal identity or values, and the like – all things to do with one’s personal experience, not one’s partner’s.” Esther commented that her favourite skill is learning to update your love map of your partner. “Love Maps are what Gottman describes as the areas in our brain where we store important information about our partners – everything from their favourite food or movie, to their current stressors/fears and biggest life dreams. It’s a mistake to assume that just because I’ve been with my partner for 20 years that I know everything there is to know about him – we must keep in touch with each other’s changing worlds, as those little details that make all the difference in feeling close, known, and intimate with each other. The new Enhancing

Connection Workshop based on the work by Dr. Sue Johnson, and created by our own Dr. Rob Lees, is designed to help couples understand each other’s needs and emotional language to allow a deeper connection, as often the root of conflict and disconnection are unmet/misread needs. As a participant Esther commented that what she really liked is the “understanding that we all have the need to be connected and to be sure of someone. For some of us, when our needs are not met, we protest, others withdraw, and some of us cling. You might recognize these patterns from attachment styles in children. Couples can learn that their desire to meet their needs is swept up in a pattern that takes both of them captive.” Healthy parents help foster healthy children and healthy extended family. Healthy families help foster healthy communities. And that’s what we’re all about. For more information please visit www.buildinghealthyrelationships.net.

He was raised and lives in the Fraser Valley. Thompson replaces Maggie Reimer of Chilliwack who served as chair for the past three years. Reimer is an investment adviser at RBC Dominion Securities. “We thank Maggie for her dedication and hard work which saw us through the Campaign for Health Care Excellence in Chilliwack and the initial planning for our upcoming fundraising campaign in Mission,” said Raw.

Young children added to group of those eligible for free flu shot Everyone knows that seniors are particularly vulnerable to the flu, but every year otherwise healthy children also become seriously ill or even die because they didn’t get a flu shot. As flu season gets underway, Fraser Health’s Chief Medical Health Officer is reminding Fraser Health residents that the flu shot is provided free of charge to those at highest risk of severe flu illness, as well as those who are close contacts or caregivers. Public Health clinics providing free flu shots to people at high risk of complications from influenza (the flu) are now underway in Fraser Health communities. New this year, healthy children aged six months to less than five years of age and household contacts and caregivers of children less than five years of age are eligible for the free vaccine.  “In a typical flu season, thousands of people develop serious illness or even die from the flu or its complications, such as pneumonia,” said Dr. Paul Van Buynder. “The influenza vaccine is the best protection against influenza illness and its complications and is a safe and effective way to help people stay healthy, prevent illness, and even save lives.” Influenza is the leading cause of preventable death due to infectious disease in Canada, killing thousands of Canadians every year and hospitalizing thousands more. Influenza spreads easily from person to person through coughing, sneezing, face-to-face contact and by touching surfaces such as door knobs and telephones that have been contaminated with the virus. The flu season usually runs from November to April with an estimated 10 to 25 per cent of people infected each year. A person can have the flu virus without knowing it, and pass it to someone who may become seriously ill. An estimated 200 - 300 Fraser Health residents, mainly seniors, die every year from complications of influenza infection. “The flu season really gets going in November and December. So we urge everyone to get the vaccine as soon as it’s available,” Van Buynder said, adding that it takes 10 days to two weeks before the vaccine is effective. Last year, Fraser Health provided approximately 300,000 seasonal flu shots free of charge to those at risk

of complications from the flu; the goal for the campaign this year is to achieve 365,000 vaccinations. Free flu shots are highly recommended and provided to the following groups: • People 65 years of age and over and their caregivers • Children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts • Health care workers • Emergency responders • NEW! Healthy children aged 6 months to under five years • NEW! Household contacts and caregivers of infants and children under five years • Pregnant women who will be in their 3rd trimester during the influenza season • Residents of nursing homes and other chronic care facilities • Owners and operators of poultry farms • Aboriginal peoples • People who are very overweight (those with a body mass index of 40 or greater) • Corrections officers and inmates in provincial correctional institutions • Those who provide care or service in potential outbreak settings housing high risk persons (e.g. crew on ships) For a complete list of flu clinics near you, visit our website at www.fraserhealth.ca, contact your local Public Health office, or consult the BC Flu Clinic Locator at www.health.gov.bc.ca/ flu. Bring your CareCard or other government I.D. (valid driver’s license) to the clinic, and please wear a short sleeved shirt. Many physician offices and pharmacies also provide vaccine free-of-charge to those who are eligible or at low cost. More information is available on the Immunize BC website at www.immunizebc.ca and the HealthLink BC website at www.healthlinkbc.ca. You can also call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 to speak to a healthcare professional. There are several free Chilliwack Flu Clinics in the weeks ahead, all located at Central Community Church, 46100 Chilliwack Central Road. Nov. 8 1:30 - 5 p.m. Nov. 14, 3:30 - 7 p.m. Nov. 29, 1:30 - 5 p.m. Dec. 13, 1:30 - 5 p.m.

Stigma of dementia another barrier for Chilliwack families Chilliwack families living with the impact of dementia are also coping with stigma, according to a new study. Nearly three-quarters of people with dementia, and 64 per cent of family caregivers, believe there are negative associations for those diagnosed with dementia, says Alzheimer’s Disease International. Another alarming statistic revealed in the ADI report: 40 per cent of people with dementia say they have been avoided or treated differently. The report puts a spotlight on stigma as a real

issue that impacts individuals and families who are living with Alzheimer’s disease,” says Jillian Armit, the Chilliwack and Abbotsford Support and Education Coordinator for the nonprofit Alzheimer Society of B.C. “We want residents to know that there is hope and there are ways for overcoming stigma so that we can all better support families on the dementia journey and work with decision-makers to ensure that the rights of people living with dementia and their family caregivers are rec-

ognized.” The Society offers education programs and support groups for both the individual who has been diagnosed with a form of dementia and their caregivers. A free local support and information group serves as a forum for sharing practical tips and strategies for coping with the disease. It helps create support and friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia. For more information contact Armit at 604-7024603 or jarmit@alzheimerbc.org.

kid leads the league in assists, and with 24 points he sits second to Penticton’s Wade Murphy in the BCHL scoring race. “He’s so solid on the puck and he’s obviously a great playmaker,” Hansen said. “I’ve always wanted to play with guys like that and getting the opportunity this year has been great.” If Hansen had his way, he’d probably issue 100 per cent of the credit to Plevy and Esposito, but that would be selling short the work he did over the summer. Hansen spent the offseason training under the watch of Chiefs strength and conditioning guru Paul Nicolls, and the results are obvious. Not only is he stronger on the boards, his footspeed has improved remarkably. Several times this season, Hansen has been seen pulling away from pursuing defenders. “I always considered myself a good skater, just not very explosive,” Hansen said. “Paul worked a lot with me to develop that and I think it’s helped.” Hansen doesn’t have

the dangling ability of his uber-skilled buddies, but the veteran complements them so well with what he does. He is adept at going to the net and getting those ‘garbage goals’ that coach Harvey Smyl loves so much. All coaches love Hansonish players, and

it’s no coincidence that his offensive surge has resulted in more attention from collegiate talent evaluators. Hansen still hasn’t committed to a scholarship opportunity, which makes his goal-scoring binge particularly well timed. “I’ve never really

talked to any schools up until this year, and now I am,” he said. “It’s different and good, because I definitely want to play hockey after this season is over.” Hansen and his Chiefs are on home ice Saturday night at 7 p.m., hosting the Penticton Vees at Prospera

Centre. Chilliwack beat the Vees 4-1 in Penticton last weekend, but they’ll be without Plevy and defenceman Cooper Rush this time. Both are taking part in a prospect showcase game as part of the World Junior A Challenge in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

Chiefs back home to face shorthanded Vees The Chiefs will be without Cooper Rush and Austin Plevy this weekend, writes Jacob Bestebroer

It was nice to see the Chiefs return to home

ice last night. It had been 25 days and seven

games since their last home game. After visiting Coquitlam Friday, the Chiefs are home again Saturday when they host the defending national champion Penticton Vees in a rematch of last year’s first round playoff matchup.

ther ahead, on Nov. 17 the Chiefs will welcome members of the Canadian women’s national soccer team that won bronze at the 2012 London Summer Olympics. Erin McLeod, Melissa Tancredi, Brittany Timko and Emily Zurrer will be on hand for BMO’s Community Sports Night. They will drop the puck for the ceremonial faceoff and sign autographs during the first intermission. Hats off to Chiefs staff member Andrea Laycock for making this happen. I’ll admit I don’t watch much soccer. but I did have their semi-final game versus the United States on, intending to have it in the background while I got some work done. It

didn’t take long for me to vacate my desk and plant myself in front of the TV to watch what turned out to be an incredible game. The Canadian girls lost a heartbreaker 4-3 and were victim of some horrible officiating. Back to hockey and a few random comments on the Chiefs. Prior to their recent stretch of seven straight road games, the Chiefs had never played more than five consecutive games away from home. Going in to last night’s game versus Langley, the Chiefs had the BCHL’s top goal scorer (Josh Hansen with 15) and playmaker (Luke Esposito with 20 assists). A reminder that the Chiefs are organizing a fan bus for the game in Merritt on Friday, Nov.

23. The price is set at $35 per person which includes your game ticket and pre and post game snacks on the bus. Call the Chiefs office at 604-392-4433 or visit customer service during a Chiefs game to sign up. The BCHL’s Movember campaign is currently raising funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. Several Chiefs players are growing mustaches to show their support. The list includes Shay Laurent and Spencer Graboski. Keep an eye of the Chiefs website and Facebook page for weekly updates on how they are doing. Links to the links donation page can be found there as well.

The Chiefs will be without defenseman Cooper Rush and forward Austin Plevy this weekend. Both were selected to play for Team Canada West in the CJHL Prospects mini-series as part of the World Junior A Challenge being held in Yartmouth, Nova Scotia. More than half the teams in the BCHL are without top players due to these events. No team has more players away than the Vees, who have five in Nova Scotia. But as Chiefs coach Harvey Smyl will tell you, it’s not about the players who are not playing. It’s about the players that are. I expect a great game Saturday as the teams meet for the final time this season. Looking a little fur-

Grizzlies face AAA top dog

GW Graham’s Grade 8 football Grizzlies concluded their regular season with a fourth consecutive win, claiming top spot in the AA conference. GWG downed Abbotsford 24-12, and they now advance to the AAA playoffs. The Grizzlies face Vancouver College on Tuesday, night, pitting themselves against the top seed from the AAA bracket. The game

will be played at the Burnaby Lakes Sports Complex. “What a huge accomplishment for our kids and a first year program,” said head coach Laurie Smith. “We wanted to play against the best in the province and now we get to do just that.” The Grizzlies, who finished 8-1-1 overall and 5--1 within their conference, shook up the Grade 8 football standings this year. Very few expected a new team to compete, never mind win the division and jump to the AAA playoffs. In the victory over Abbotsford, running back Emilio Pineda led the way with 156 yards

on 17 carries with two twouchdowns and three two point conversions. Quarterback Wyatt Uzick and receiver Noah Dubosoff connected for over 100 yards and a major to complete the Grizzlies scoring. On defense, the Grizzlies were led by Michael Lengert and Jaimey Bessette with two sacks each. The defensive line applied relentless pressure on Abbotsford’s QB, with Jake Troyan adding several tackles. Outside linebackers Ethan Mastin and Miguel Wood contained the normally explosive Abbotsford running game and knocked down several passes.

Festive fundraising at GWG It costs money to run high school sports teams, and GW Graham’s athletics department is rolling out several Christmas fundraisers to help offset the costs. GWG is selling poinsettia plants, wreaths, garland and festive door swag. Contact Jake Mouritzen at jake_mouritzen@sd33.bc.ca for ordering info. Order forms for wreaths, garlands and door swag should be dropped off at GWG’s main or phys-ed office no later than Nov. 16. Order forms for poinsettias are due no later than Nov. 23 with orders arrived at the school Dec. 5. GWG will be running their annual Christmas tree lot from Dec. 1-22.

National notice Back to back wins over Mount Royal University have the UFV Cascades women’s basketball team ranked No. 2 nationally. Led by Chilliwack natives Nicole and Sarah Wierks, Courtney Bartel, Kayli Sartori and Alexa McCarthy, the Cascades find themselves one spot ahead of the University of Regina and one spot behind the University of Windsor. Get more info at ufv. ca/athletics.

All trees will be freshly cut from Lumsden’s Tree farm in Columbia Valley. The lot will be open Monday to Friday from 3 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday

from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Finally, you can purchase a limited-timeonly Grizzlies Ultimate belt buckle or other GWG gear. Contact Mouritzen for more info.

A rose once grew where all could see, sheltered beside a garden wall, and, as the days passed swiftly by, it spread its branches straight and tall... One day a beam of light shone through a crevice that had opened wide The rose bent gently toward its warmth, then passed beyond to the other side... Now, you who deeply feel its loss, be comforted - the rose blooms there, its beauty even greater now, nurtured by God’s own loving care.

ADAMS Patricia Kathleen

RAINE Dorothy Miriam

(nee Young) April 10, 1936 November 1, 2012 Dot passed away in the Chilliwack General Hospital after coping bravely against RAINE advanced cancer. Her husband of 54 years, Monty, daughters Kathy (Allan) and Cindy (James), and son Montry Jr. (Kristie) were by her bedside at the time of her peaceful parting. Dot was born in Bathurst NB. At age twenty (1956) she ventured west; trained at Essondale (Riverview) and became a dedicated Psychiatric Nurse until May 1991. Words seem inadequate to describe Dot’s loving and caring personality combined with a keen sense of humour and the perseverance to persist against adversity. In many

ways she was the bond that united her diverse, extended family into a harmonious oneness. For the past twenty one years the residence in Princeton was known simply and appropriately as Grannieland. When living in Pitt Meadows Dot played the organ at the local Anglican Church, and the home on McMyn, during the sixties and seventies, was often the scene for much jovial, heartwarming togetherness, highlighted by her piano playing skills. In later years, at the Princeton Branch 30 Seniors Hall, Dot tickled the ivories with delicate feeling or wild abandon when playing for the Movers and Shakers entertainment group. On that note, Dot’s husband and family wishes to thank the innumerable Princeton friends and acquaintances who made the Raines life so enjoyable and satisfying during the past twenty one years in their presence. Princeton was the destination of choice for retirement and the welcome mat was immediately evident. Dot’s recreational passion was bowling in both Princeton and Chilliwack in recent years. Many friendships were born and prospered at the alleys and she liked nothing better than having family members of all ages congregate for an evening of fun bowling. For all of her loving, trustful years as wife to Monty, she still retained, with his blessing, a persistent streak of independence which was proven when she drove solo across Canada to New Brunswick and back again in 2004, a total of approximately 3600 miles. Two months after returning she rolled her car over a steep embankment on the Hope Princeton Highway within ten miles of home. In the dark, after extricating herself from the vehicle, she struggled seventy five feet or more up the clay and bushy slope to be picked

up by a passing trucker. Dot was predeceased by son Garry (1973) and brothers Ernie, Art, and Bob. Only a few weeks before her passing and accompanied by daughter Kathy, Dot miraculously travelled to New Brunswick and spent a week with her remaining brother Norm; a trip that was her silver lining around the dark cloud of apprehension. Dot has always been a lover of her pet dogs that she ‘saved’ by adoption. First there were two tiny Sandy dogs, then Jip the Border Collie, Buddy an Australian Shepherd, and lastly her most recent pride and joy, Nancy, who has been entrusted to the care of her husband with a specific list of do’s and don’ts spelled out by Dot in no uncertain terms--please don’t fret Babe. Besides her husband, two daughters and a son, Dot leaves nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Dot, our sorrow ia immense, but we know that you are part of us forever. The family gives many thanks to the Cancer Society staff in Kelowna and Abbotsford for their expertise and understanding ways. Equally important was the kindness shown by all those involved with Dot’s care during the stressful last few days of her life in Chilliwack General Hospital. Her choice of donations was to the BC Cancer Society or your local S.P.C.A. Other than a private family gathering, Dot’s request for a celebration of her life in Princeton will be planned at a later date.

Wills can be confusing.

TROTTER Deborah Lynn

Deborah Trotter, late of Chilliwack, BC passed away on October 30th, 2012. She was born on TROTTER July 4th, 1952 in Winnipeg and the owner/ operator of Elvis Rocks, the Canyon CafĂŠ in Boston Bar, BC. There will be no service but there will be a celebration of life when the weather warms up for all her family and friends and her favourite Elvis tribute artists at her restaurant. Her love for her family was genuine and Deborah is survived by her husband Norm; her son, Gordon (Natacha) Trotter in Mission; daughter, Teresa (Sheri) Trotter in Whistler; four grandchildren, Tessa Healey, Tory Devin and Dayton Reid; her ex-husband’s Gordon Reid in Maple Ridge and James Trotter from Nukusp, BC; her four sisters, Carol Telford of Courtney, Judy Hiledrandt of Chilliwack, Donna Webster and Janie, both of Chilliwack; many nieces, nephews and cousins. The family would like to thank Henderson’s Funeral Home for their care and compassion shown. Should family and friends so desire, donations in her memory may be made to Cops for Cancer, BC and BC Children’s Hospital because her children and grandchildren were “the apple of her eyeâ€?.

But they don’t have to be.
