New safety building explored
Task force created to investigate home for RCMP, fire and other emergency services Kevin Mills Black Press
A new task force has been formed to examine the construction of a new safety building for the District of Hope. The decision was made last Tuesday, during a committee of the whole meeting. The proposed building would be designed to house the RCMP, ambulance service, fire department and search and rescue. The concept
could also include housing the district hall in the upstairs portion. “That would be quite a project. We’re not thinking small. We’re going to go big or go home,” said Hope Mayor Susan Johnston. While only in the beginning stage – no architectural drawings or cost analysis has been created – Johnston said it is not a new concept. “We’ve been sold on the idea for a considerable amount of time but it’s now that we are putting our feelers
out there.” She said the project was brought up during last month’s Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention. Johnston approached the Premier and the Attorney General to see “what the appetite would be” to receive funding. At this point there is no real indication of what kind of funding would be available. “We’re not talking money at all. As we well know the government

could change and that would require going back to the table and regrouping.” Currently the Hope RCMP are housed in a building not owned by the district. Rent is a major part of the annual RCMP budget. She said a new building could eventually “pay for itself.” Johnston said she would also like to see the traffic services return to Hope. Continued on 2

Cost savings always being examined
In the early 2000s the Hope Highway Patrol was moved to Chilliwack to become the Fraser Valley Traffic Services. “If we could get it back it would certainly help our share of the
policing budget.” She said Hope RCMP officers are now “first responders” at highway accidents, until traffic services can get on scene from Chilliwack. That costs the district time and money. Hope RCMP Staff Sgt.
Suki Manj said a new building would be welcome news to the force. “The expectation is that they supply the building, so Hope has been paying (rent) for a provincial building,” he explained. He said the cost has
recently gone up and Hope is billed 100 per cent of that cost. Manj the current building has become out of date. “There comes a point where you have to look at whether it’s worth repairing the building

Clancy and Jenny Wolpert will be among nine Fraser Valley photographers taking part in Nature Exposed, a photo exhibit. The show is being sponsored by Tourism Harrison and the Harrison Resort and Spa this weekend in Harrison Hot Springs. The public is invited to the free event in the Canada Room at the Harrison Resort and Spa on Saturday and Sunday, Nov 24-25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Since retirement, the Wolperts have rarely been seen without cameras in their hands. Clancy is known locally for his love of Thacker Marsh and its inhabitants. He will also be sharing his fascination with grizzly bears. Jenny is recognized for her wide ranging interests in the visual arts and is an artist with the Hope Arts Gallery. Both have been amazed by the birds encountered in the last few years. The photography exhibited will be for sale, but this exhibition is also an opportunity for Jenny and Clancy to share some of their wildlife sightings and experiences with the community. Fred Gornall, co-organizer of the show promises a wide range of pictures, both framed and unframed as well as 2013 calendars and greeting cards that depict local scenes which will be available.

you’re in or getting into a new one. I think we’re at that point.” Currently Hope has 13 municipally funded officers and four office staff. The cost is shared 70/30 by Hope and the province. There is also one officer and one office staff funded solely by the province. Manj said he has talked before with council on ways that efficiencies can be found in the policing budget. “There are two areas where they can decide as a municipality on reductions,” he explained. Those areas are the amount of overtime allowed and the number of officers on staff. But Manj said fewer officers would force council to re-examine “what service level they expect.” No decision has been made on next year’s budget, but Mayor Johnston has indicated that she is not in favour of reducing the number of police officers. The 2011/2012 RCMP budget was $1.8 million with Hope paying $1.31 million towards it. Manj said the municipality is looking at ways of saving money, or using it more efficiently. “They’re looking to see if what we’re doing is making sense or do we need to streamline or do we need to reallocate funding,” said Manj.

Patient feels financial pressure
Aftercare costs prompt transplant survivor to raise awareness Miranda Miller Black Press
Connie Perkull received a liver transplant earlier this year. The Hope resident was treated at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) on Sept. 22 and, like most B.C. residents, provincial health care covered her surgery. Her operation went well. However, after her surgery, Perkull began to feel the financial pressure that often comes after a long-term illness. After her transplant she signed a contract with the hospital, committing Perkull to remain in Vancouver for three months, so her recovery could be monitored. After three weeks of liver rejection and reperfusion problems, she stabilized, and was ready to find, and move into a Vancouver apartment. She received a grant from the VGH UBC Hospital Foundation, providing her with $600 a month during her Vancouver stay. “Even though I received the grant, I was in tears. Accommodation was hard to find and expensive, and the grant didn’t cover rent,” said Perkull. Social workers provided her with a list of places to call, but after many attempts, nothing was available. When Perkull finally found an apartment the rent was $1,650 a month, and by the time November rolled around she had already spent approximately

$3,000 on her credit card, and still hadn’t received any of the grant money. With a restricted low sodium diet, and Perkull being a diabetic, the costs just kept adding up. As a registered nurse, Perkull is no stranger to the Canadian health care system. She was quick to point out that the care she received from hospital staff was impressive. “It was a fantastic experience in the ward. The nurses and doctors

fighting for her life, but the burden of aftercare costs and the lack of financial assistance made her pack her bags and return home. “A transplant is a miracle, and I’m afraid people would not opt for the surgery because of the expensive aftercare costs, and how hard it is to find accommodation. “If you don’t have credit cards or come from a rich family, you simply can’t do it.

were reassuring, compassionate, and very well trained. I know what hospital teamwork looks like, and these nurses were an incredible team, it was a very calming environment,” said Perkull. As her recovery was going well, Perkull decided to ask her doctors for permission to return to Hope, because living in Vancouver was simply not affordable. She was focusing on
lucky enough only to stay in Vancouver for a month, but for those having to stay longer that would cost a lot,” said Perkull. When asked what she wanted to see changed in regards to aftercare expenses, Perkull said there needs to be some sort of funding available to make this process less financially draining. She also asked that people donate to BC Transplant, specifically for patients’ aftercare. The BC Transplant Society is a provincial agency, working in conjunction with the Ministry of Health to help those who have gone through transplant surgery. “We provide oversight for transplant and organ donations,” said Peggy John, manager of communications for the BC Transplant Society. BC Transplant also supplies patients (including Perkull) with lifetime financial support for anti-rejection medication, paying for costs that are sometimes $2,000 to $3,000 a month. “This accommodation situation exists for many patients – more support is needed. There are other organizations like the Happy Liver Society, the Heart and Home Society, and the Kidney Foundation that all provide support. But there is obviously a need, across a variety of spectrums, and people should support existing causes,” said John.

Store remained busy throughout renovation process
Cooper’s Foods has been serving B.C. communities since 1957, and has become a popular place to shop among local consumers. The Hope store started renovations in October, and held a grand opening on Nov. 16. Store Manager, Jeff Lebsack cut the ribbon at noon. The store remained open throughout the two-month renovation. The upgrade include five new tills, which are ergonomically designed to help counteract carpal tunnel syndrome. The layout of the store has changed, with some walls taken out, and windows added, creating an open concept.
The store has added energy-efficient freezers, and the freezer lights turn off when no one is in the aisle. All the lights inside Cooper’s are also going to be changed to energyefficient bulbs this week. “We are reducing our carbon footprint,” said Lebsack. The store offers a remodeled produce section, a new bakery that specializes in cupcakes, and a new deli and meat case display. A flower shelf was also added to the front of the store. Not only has the store become brighter with decorations, a colourful paint job, and new signage, Cooper’s has also brought in more natural foods and gluten-free products. Each aisle has a store directory and an itinerary to help find what you need.

The Don Bush Environmental Stewardship Award has been presented to the Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee for its tremendous accomplishments in 2012. The Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee was formed in July 2011 by local resident, Lydia Koot, in partnership with Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning. The committee was established in response to a growing number of black bear encounters in the Hope area. Between 2009 and 2011 the number of bear reports to the Conservation Office Service grew from 50 to over 300 each year. The committee’s goal is to promote and support the co-existence of black bears and Hope residents through community involvement, education and cooperation. The organization

Change pot laws Marijuana reform advocates hope Washington and Colorado states’ recent vote to legalize and tax marijuana sales will add momentum to their push for change in B.C. Washington state estimates it would collect $560 million in the first year from a 25-per-cent tax on the sale of regulated marijuana through authorized stores. If enacted, this could also cause a partial collapse of B.C.’s estimated $7-billion-a-year illegal pot industry, as growers relocate to the U.S. to avoid the need to smuggle. Recently, the Union of B.C. Municipalities passed a resolution calling for marijuana to be decriminalized. They’d rather pot be regulated and taxed instead. The U.S. votes are a progressive move toward responsible marijuana use. It’s time for B.C. to take a similar step toward decriminalization, if not legalization of marijuana. The potential tax revenue and the opportunity to reduce law enforcement costs, and help unclog our court system is compelling. The poll results south of the border sent a message that U.S. drug policies are not working. Ours aren’t working either. Sensible B.C., a campaign headed by B.C. marijuana activist and medical pot dispenser Dana Larsen, group aims to get enough signatures on a petition to force a provincial referendum on marijuana decriminalization, through B.C.’s Recall and Initiative Act. The proposed Sensible Policing Act would block B.C. police from spending time or resources on searches, seizures or arrests for simple possession. It’s time we take our antiquated marijuana laws and follow the lead of our neighbours to the south and let the people decide if it’s time for a change. – The Burnaby Newsleader
Reality check needed on teen suicide
Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – If you find Premier Christy Clark’s campaign against teen bullying to be superficial or even self-serving, I’ve got news for you. It’s potentially worse than that. With the greatest respect to the family of Amanda Todd, her tragic case isn’t representative of teen suicide any more than it is typical of high-school bullying. A clearer and more disturbing picture emerges from the latest report of B.C.’s Representative for Children and Youth, Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond. It’s a survey of 89 child protection cases from 2007 to 2010, where 15 kids killed themselves and the rest inflicted serious self-injury, in some cases

repeatedly. The word “bully” does not appear in the report. It speaks of domestic violence, physical and sexual abuse, addiction, and runaways targeted by street predators. Three quarters of the kids were removed from their homes to protect them from their parents. More than half are aboriginal. Its key conclusion is that shifting traumatized and mentally ill teens from institutional care to foster homes isn’t working. Earnest but inadequately trained foster parents and social workers can’t cope with kids who need diagnosis, treatment and supervision. Without that, kids shuffled through foster homes an average of a dozen times in three years, with little attachment to home or school. Some were violent, no surprise given their formative

years. I asked Turpel-Lafond about the B.C. government’s recent focus on bullying. She said it’s worthwhile, and there are parallels between Amanda’s case and more common teen suicides. One is isolation at moments of crisis. “Say you’re a middle-class parent with a child who hasn’t come out of their bedroom in six months, or you have a boy in foster care who’s in his 14th home,” she said. “They both want to kill themselves, so what do you do?” Ideally, you intervene and get them to a child psychologist. Parents or guardians who can’t afford $150 an hour can wait months for the Ministry of Children and Family Development to arrange it. And in the meantime, our supposedly family-based foster care system sends them to school. “I’m really worried about how [school-based anti-bullying pro-

grams] will affect the most vulnerable kids, because you start anonymously reporting someone as being a bully,” Turpel-Lafond said. “Yeah, we know they’re in the youth justice system. We know they’re troubled. By the way, they’ve been sexually and physically abused, jumped through 30 foster homes, and now we want to label them again?” This is not to suggest that the existing B.C. effort isn’t substantial. The ministry reports that there are 2,221 front-line staff positions, of which 219 are currently vacant. It’s notoriously difficult to recruit, train and keep child protection workers, especially in remote communities. Turpel-Lafond says her latest figures show the child and youth mental health service has 476 staff, with 21 vacancies and a government-wide hiring freeze. And

many of those are doing double duty as community service managers. Those managers don’t even have reliable data on case loads, she said. They just know they’re overwhelmed and many of the kids aren’t being reached. This is not about political blame. I can trace this problem back to when Grace McCarthy was children’s minister, and the NDP did no better. I’ve learned a bit about Riverview and Tranquille, asylums that were closed because of a modern belief that they were inhumane. At least they offered safety and medical care to even the most damaged people. Right now our enlightened, progressive society can’t even help most of the kids we know are at high risk.

Letters Closing office was a safety issue
Re: Concerned about legislation, Letters (Nov. 7) I wanted to address a number of letters to the editor that have appeared in local papers including this one regarding a demonstration held at my constituency office on Oct. 31. Meeting with constituents and hearing their concerns is extremely important to me. It is why I was very disappointed to learn, while I was already in Ottawa, that the day chosen for a demonstration at my office would be a day that I would be sitting in the House of Com-
mons. I’m not sure why this date was chosen, but certainly the public understands that when parliament is in session I have a responsibility to them to be in Ottawa. The decision to temporarily close my office during the demonstration is not one I took lightly. While the demonstration was by all accounts peaceful (and creative), I did previously receive anonymous threats of violence against my office via Twitter. When it comes to the safety of my staff, I will always err on the side of
caution. With respect to the development of new pipelines, no decisions have been made. The Northern Gateway Pipeline for instance is currently undergoing a thorough and rigorous review. The decision to approve the project will be made on the basis of science and not on ideology. If it can’t be demonstrated that the project can be done safely, it will not proceed. It is simply not true to suggest that major projects like the Trans Mountain pipeline would not be subject to environmental review.
Nor is it accurate to suggest that the China-Canada Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) would prevent governments from regulating in the public interest. I have already met with many constituents who have concerns regarding these issues, and we have always engaged in a respectful and fact based discussion. I look forward to doing so again with concerns citizens in the future. Mark Strahl Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP
Billion dollar delay of game penalty
Have you been wondering what Hockey Night in Canada fans have been doing on Saturday nights? According to media experts 95 per cent of them still have their noses glued to the TV but only 11 per cent are watching Ron Maclean’s pathetic attempt to hock yesterday’s hockey. There’s even more lockout-hockey news: the sponsor’s beer sales are down significantly right cross Canada. Apparently Molson Coors will be
seeking financial compensation for lost revenue once the lockout ends. My god, corporate lawyers are slick; slicker than freshly Zambonied ice. You can bet your bottom dollar that those shifty legal beagles are already in training, practising how to concuss their opponents without getting disbarred from the game. Their legal stickwork is sure to be daffy but dazzling. Hey, wait a minute! If Molson Coors can butt-
end the NHL big shots where it hurts most, in their pocket books, why can’t the fans? There must be some nifty lawyers out there with nothing important to do on Saturday nights. How about initiating a class action lawsuit on behalf of the fans? Claiming damages of a billion dollars from those greedy NHL owners for loss of leisure and pleasure seems fair! Lloyd Atkins

Hope Art Gallery a true treasure Christmas Bazaar HOPE STATION HOUSE COMMUNITY ARTS & HERITAGE SOCIETY
the artist and we spent an hour enthralled with the variety of art and jewelry, textile art and photographic art on display and all from the imagination of local artists I have driven that Hope Princeton Highway hundreds of times between 1965 and the present day and I never knew about that wonderful “Oasis of Culture.” My companion and I were both so delighted.
I left with a glorious painting by Joan Pelles that caught fallen snow so perfectly to my eye, the weight of it and the cold of it. And my friend left with a delightful sculpture created from driftwood. Hope residents must be very proud of that gallery. I had to pull myself away from all that I saw. The photographic art of historic sites around B.C. was enlighten-
ing and the hour spent in the Gallery was exhilarating and joyful. I didn’t want to leave. Thank you so very much for the Experience of Hope through the Hope Art Gallery and the artists she houses I urge Hope citizens and anyone passing by to spend time and perhaps some money in a place of true treasure.

Our 27th silent auction was an amazing success. The auxiliary to Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Hope Lodge wants to thank all the citizens of Hope and all the merchants for their ongoing support for the last 27 years. We could not have done it without each and everyone of you. Our silent auction was held at the Hope Legion Memorial Hall on Nov. 3. Nearly 300 items were up for bids
and we raised $12,000. Money raised stays in Hope to purchase items that will aid in patient comfort and care in our hospital and lodge. A big thank you to Mayor Susan Johnston for opening our 27th silent auction. Hope is an amazing place – your spirit of giving shows the true meaning of how fortunate we are to be living here!

Careers in trucking Drivers, mechanics are in high demand
Job seekers are in luck when it comes to the commercial road transportation industry in British Columbia. Trucking companies throughout BC require professional drivers, mechanics, dispatchers and operations staff right now, which means that job seekers with experience and/or training may find work within their preferred region. For those considering training prior to joining the workforce, demand for skilled workers in the industry is likely to grow – to 2020 and beyond. There are a number of reasons for this. For truck drivers, the industry is facing a North America-wide shortage because most are 45 years of age or older and nearing retirement. In fact, in Canada, according to a report by the Canada Trucking Human Resources Council, 58 percent of long-haul truck drivers fall in this age range. Similar shortages exist for other jobs, including diesel engine and heavy duty mechanics. Aside from worker shortages, economic growth in the AsiaPacific Gateway is also driving demand for workers in transportation. This applies not only to companies in the Lower Mainland, but in other regions as well, since the Asia-Pacific “Gateway” is actually made up of an integrated supply chain of airports, seaports, rail and road connections, and border crossings, from Prince Rupert to Surrey, with links supplied by trucking. Today’s trucking industry is an exciting place to be. Equipment in many companies is state of the art, meaning increased comfort and ease for drivers and opportunities for mechanics to work with technologically advanced systems, keeping both their skills and interest engaged. Dispatch relies on sophisticated tracking

There is a huge demand for new workers in the trucking industry. Everything from drivers to mechanics and dispatchers are being sought
and routing systems. Others on the operations side also use information technology of many kinds to deal with everything from licences and permits, to customer services, accounting, sales and marketing. And, people joining the industry have many career choices. Drivers, for example, may work close to home as pick-up and delivery or short-haul drivers. Those who like the idea of travelling across Canada or North America can become long-haul drivers for an employer or work as owner-operators. Drivers may haul consumer goods, fuel, logs, heavy-duty equipment, livestock – most of what we purchase or consume spent some time on the road with a commercial truck! Yako noted that trucking is also a growth industry, and for the past 12 years its growth has exceeded the economy by about three per cent. If you already have experience as a driver, mechanic or operations worker, most companies advertise jobs on their websites. Members of the BC Truck-
ing Association from across the province may post jobs under Careers on www.bctrucking. com, and the provincial and federal governments maintain job sites at WorkBC (http://www. workbc.ca/Jobs/) and Working in Canada (http://www.workingincanada.gc.ca/ - choose to Explore Careers by Occupation, then by Region). Within your own community, it may also pay to approach a company you’d like to work for, drop off a résumé and inquire if and when they’ll be hiring. If you’d like to enter the industry but need training, there are also many avenues to explore. Although there is not a standard training course for professional drivers, there are numerous private schools throughout BC that offer programs. For information on transportation trades in BC, including mechanics and other technicians, visit transCDA (http://www.tcda. ca/home).
