Point named to ‘champion’ Oppal inquiry recommendations

■ S NOWY D AY

‘He has the right experience and the right credentials,’ Crey says Robert Freeman The Progress

Ernie Crey, a Sto:lo activist and an early and vocal advocate for an inquiry into B.C.’s missing women, praised the appointment of Steven Point to “champion” implementation of recommendations made Monday by inquiry commissioner Wally Oppal. “I know Steven Point fairly well and he has the right experience and the right credentials,” Crey said Wednesday. “He’s a deeply spiritual guy in every sense of the word,” Crey said, as well as a respected Sto:lo leader, a former provincial court judge and former Lieutenant Governor of B.C. Crey said he will be urging other families of missing women to work with Point. But Crey was critical of the B.C. government’s initial response to the other 62 recommendations made in “Forsaken: The Report of the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry” that was “unsparing” of the RCMP and police departments involved, he said. The government is claiming it can’t act on many of the recommendations that carry a price tag. “They need to slow down and quit pleading poverty,” Crey said. “I know the changes that are required will take some real effort, but you have to make a start.” “The fortunes of the provincial coffers can change from year to year — and change quickly,” he said. Crey said he anticipates Point will come up with a “well thought-out plan — a schedule, if you will — of which recommendations to start working on immediately and which are longer term” after talking to the families, police agencies and provincial politicians. Although Oppal did not name individual police officers in his report, Crey said he intends to read all four volumes of the 1,448page report “to look for every sliver of light in the report that I can drive a wedge into and hold them to account.” Continued: POINT/ p7

Make heritage an OCP priority, advocate says Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Chilliwack citizens have started chiming in about city priorities as the Official Community Plan review continues. Chilliwack resident Laura Reid said the heritage sections of the OCP could use some careful updating during the year-long review process. She points to Section 4.1.5. of the current OCP which covers “heritage policies.” “Building a healthy community requires a solid base of appreciation and respect for our historical and spatial setting,” the section reads. “As we develop a community plan for Chilliwack’s future, we must acknowledge our historical

heritage; a legacy of native, pioneer, settlement and agricultural cultures found in our buildings and sites, transportation routes, archaeological sites, cemeteries and other cultural resources.” Reid was involved in the Friends of the Paramount effort, which was unsuccessful in saving the historic theatre building from the wrecking ball, which is due to swing sometime soon. Several years ago, she also took it upon herself to study the existing heritage building inventory in Chilliwack and update it. But her strong interest in local heritage conservation first intensified while studying Heritage Resource Management from University of Victoria, in the Cultural Resource Management

program. “My impression is that there’s strong interest in saving other historic buildings in Chilliwack,” she said. One idea Reid wants to float during the OCP review is for Chilliwack to reactivate a community heritage committee at the city council level. The last similar committee that dealt with heritage issues folded in 1991, Reid said. “It could be useful by completing research and advising council on the importance of a given building or site. “It could also recommend ways to reuse a building that the community has identified as having historical value, by moving it or reusing it in another way. The

way I read the OCP now, the heritage policies are not being utilized effectively.”  Coun. Jason Lum said the OCP is a “living, breathing” document that changes over time, and that heritage is one of the aspects it covers. “In terms of a specific heritage committee, my understanding is that we had one active at one point, but that it fell by the wayside over the years.” Heritage protection is up to individual property owners to secure, he said, usually by applying to have it registered with the B.C. Register of Historic Places. Reid said there are 11 properties in Chilliwack, like the Chilliwack Museum building, the Continued: OCP/ p5

New book calls for plan to manage gravel reach Robert Freeman The Progress

Some call it the Heart of the Fraser River. Others call it the Gravel Reach or Sturgeon Reach. It’s that 65-kilometre stretch between Hope and Mission where the river slows after cascading down the mountains to create a unique habitat in the alluvial flats for fish, for wildlife — and for humankind. And where it drops millions of tons of gravel on its meandering way. A new book titled The Sturgeon Reach describes this stretch and all its competing interests. But the book doesn’t descend into the tired rhetoric that for years has dominated the gravel mining/habitat conservation controversy.

What it does do is resurrect a call for “a collaborative land-use plan” to protect the environmental — and economic — values found within the reach. “I think any attempt to try and develop a comprehensive land-use plan that provides a modicum of protection to the river is a wise thing to be doing,” says Ben Parfitt, who co-authored the book with Terry Glavin. But it’s going to take more than government intervention — federal, provincial, regional and municipal — to make that happen, the authors say. It’s going to take public pressure. “This is the only way things ever seem to get done,” Glavin says. But, unfor tunately, although it’s located in the most densely populated

region of B.C., most Lower Mainland residents are not aware of the reach and the treasures — economic, environmental, cultural and recreational — that it contains. “A lot of British Columbians can spend their whole life living here, and yet not know that stretch of the river very well,” says Mark Angelo, who

wrote the forward to the book. The irony, Parfitt says, is that a remote but unique ecosystem called the Great Bear Rain Forest gets provincial protection, including three new land-use planning zones: protected areas; biodiversity, mining and tourism areas (BMTAs); and ecosystembased management operating

areas (EBMs). But an equally unique ecosystem located under the noses of two million Metro Vancouver residents does not. Angelo says the reach is home to the largest single salmon spawning run in the world, the largest population of white sturgeon - a prehistoric species that grows over six metres long and lives well over 150 years — at least 30 more species of fish and has served as a migratory corridor for millions of salmon since the end of the last ice age. The reach is also home to the Sto:lo people who have lived along its banks for thousands of years, and it’s a playground to sport fishermen, boaters, campers and other tourists who delight in the beauty of the reach’s broad waters, gravel bars and cot-

it’s sometimes difficult to get Lily to cooperate. Bulldogs are a laid-back breed to begin with, so getting Lily to walk around in her cart as much as possible when she is strapped into it is a bit of a challenge, says Julie Maarhuis, clinic manager and wife of Dr. Maarhuis. It is also a lot of work for the little puppy, she adds. It’s physically tiring for her and she often just stands still waiting for someone to take her out of her cart, but that

Doubts cast by Metro Vancouver about incineration testing protocols has raised further concerns at the Fraser Valley Regional District about hazardous waste disposal. Metro’s solid waste manager Paul Henderson said last week that a fly ash sample from the Burnaby incinerator that had exceeded toxicity limits was tested a second time and found not to be hazardous, leading him to doubt the accuracy of the lab’s test for leachability. But FVRD chair Sharon Gaetz said in a news release that “by questioning their own tests, Mr. Henderson is throwing all previous testing and existing protocols into doubt.” Testing of 1,800 tonnes of fly ash sent to the Cache Creek landfill in July and August found a five per cent failure rate, and plans are underway at Metro Vancouver to begin testing of older ash dumped there over the past two years. Gaetz said in light of Metro Vancouver’s move to re-test older samples by a new lab “the public should question whether this is simply a case of testing repeatedly in order to get the desired result, rather than a determination of the true toxicity of the waste.”

right height for her hind paws to comfortably and properly touch the ground. The cart is secured to Lily with a vest that is wrapped around her chest. The cart can be adjusted as she grows, but she will need a new one by the time she’s full-grown. She’s had the cart for about three weeks and Dr. Maarhuis has already seen an improvement in her back legs. Although she still moves slowly while in the cart, it is easy to see that Lily is trying her best to walk with her hind legs in sync

with her front. He points out that her right hind leg is stronger than her left. Surprisingly, Lily actually moves more quickly when not in her cart by pulling herself around and dragging her hind legs. She can pull herself into her crate at the clinic and she even has enough muscle strength in her back legs to move her whole body into her bed and curl up. Even though that’s not how the staff at Cottonwood Veterinary Clinic want to see her move around,

Metro Van’s doubts about toxic fly ash tests raises concern: Gaetz

Jenna Hauck Lily Longtail wanders from room to room at Cottonwood Veterinary Clinic. She gets treats in one room, and pats in another. She is a 13-week-old English bulldog with a tan-coloured body and soft, white face. Her ears perk up and her head tilts to the side when she hears the word “cookie”. Lily may sound like a typical puppy, but she’s not. A little more than a month ago, when she was only eight weeks old, Lily became acutely paralyzed and had great difficulty moving her hind legs. She had no control over her bladder and bowel movements, and she could barely wag her tail. No one knew how or why this happened to the young dog. Her owner ended up signing Lily over to the clinic. Dr. Tim Maarhuis and the staff had a few options. They could either: A) do a post-mortem diagnosis; B) spend thousands of dollars to do an MRI on her with no guarantee that the results would confirm what was wrong; or C) buy her a canine cart. Euthanizing her was not an option, so they went online to dogwheelchairscenter.com and bought her a cart for less than $200. “It was an unfortunate situation and we found that this was best for Lily,” says Dr. Maarhuis. “You don’t have to euthanize just because the animal is paralyzed.” Lily’s cart is mainly powered by her front legs, but it is designed for her to use and strengthen her hind legs. Each back leg is put through a padded ring which sits at just the

tonwood stands. “We have to find a way to initiate and develop a collaborative plan for the reach,” Angelo says. “My hope is that all provincial parties can take a stand in that regard in the next election.” The book Glavin and Parfitt have written is going to help kickstart that public awareness, he hopes. “They’re going to bring the Heart of the Fraser alive for many people,” he says. In just 65 pages the two writers take the reader on a trip back in time to the forces that created the Fraser River, the ecosystem that developed in the reach, the uses that the first humans, the Sto:lo people, made of the reach, and today’s challenge of mining the rich lodes of gravel deposited there.

Mayor Sharon Gaetz said she had no trouble nominating Highroad Academy teacher Julie Lade for the Prime Minister’s Teaching Excellence Award that was recently handed out. “I had no difficulty in doing so because I had seen her in action many times,” said Gaetz. Lade was also recognized with a certificate of outstanding achievement in Chilliwack council chambers Tuesday, acknowledging the PM award she received along with 27 other teachers across the country. “It’s so well deserved that’s it hard not to comment,” said Gaetz. Lade taught both of the mayor’s children. “My daughter Jenna adored Ms. Lade. It’s very seldom that children come home talking about how fabulous a teacher is.” She’s a hard-working educator who goes in early and leaves school late. “I know that Ms. Lade is very well loved by the students she has now, as well as the students she’s

Dr. Maarhuis doesn’t know exactly how Lily was acutely paralyzed, or if she’ll ever walk unaided again. Fortunately, since she’s young there is a chance that she can regenerate the muscle memory. Everyone at the clinic is hoping for

that in the end, but right now their goal is to be able to take her outside for regular walks. In the meantime, people coming into the clinic continue to ask questions about little Lily Longtail and her cart. “It’s a good educational tool for our clients — to teach them that animals can live a happy and health live,” says Julie Maarhuis. photo@theprogress.com twitter.com/PhotoJennalism

Point looks forward to his new role

Focus on what’s important in life!

Point from Front Crey’s sister Dawn was one of the women whose DNA was found on Robert Pickton’s farm, yet Crown counsel did not include her and many others in their court case, another aspect of the commission’s inquiry. Pickton was found guilty in 2007 of murdering six women, but he once claimed to police that he had killed 49 women. He was sentenced to life in prison. Attorney General Shirley Bond named Point to “champion” implementation of the inquiry’s recommendations. “I can think of no other person better suited to support this work than Steven Point,” she said. “I’m grateful he has agreed to be a champion of this work as we take action on addressing the systemic challenges identified in this report.” Point said in a statement that he looks forward to working with all parties to seek “positive” solutions. “I have always been guided by my own cultural values and the wisdom of the elders,” he said. “I will bring that to my position as chair of the advisory committee on the safety and security of vulnerable women.” “It is my sincere hope that this committee will serve as a vehicle for reconciliation and healing for our province,” he said. “I am positive that we can work together through these recommendations and make a difference consistent with the spirit and intent of commissioner Oppal’s report.”

The 13th Annual Christmas Emergency Services Food Drive was an “overwhelming success,” Chilliwack fire officials say. Over 20,000 food items and $2,300 in cash was collected during the three-hour blitz by firefighters from all six fire halls and by members of Chilliwack Search and Rescue and Emergency Social Services. “Members of the public were again generous in their support which included $1,300 in cash donations,” Fire Chief Rick Ryall said in a new release. The Chilliwack Firefighters Charitable Society also made a $1,000 donation for a total $2,300 going to the Salvation Army Food Bank. Because it was not possible to get to all the households during the Dec. 10 blitz, the Chilliwack Fire Department will continue to accept food donations until Dec. 21 at Fire Hall #1 located at the corner of Cheam Avenue and Young Road. The fire hall will be open for donations Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

R AESIDE

It’s hard not to be moved by the heart-wrenching scenes played out in the news coverage of last week’s horrific mass shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut. The notion of a resolute gunman walking into a classroom and executing young innocent children, their teachers and principal is beyond comprehension. It shatters our very idea of school as a place of nurturing, learning and safety. Sadly, it’s not the first time it’s happened. It likely won’t be the last. It’s hard to know what goes through the mind of someone who could do such a crime; most end up killing themselves as their final act of violence. The stories about them that emerge afterward often paint a picture of pained outcasts enduring some sort of mental illness or anguish. Tortured by their own dark thoughts some eventually snap, lashing out at whatever or whomever they perceive to be the cause of their pain. In America, where guns can be bought over the counter at the local Walmart, that can involve bullets and bloodshed. Fortunately we aren’t quite so liberal when it comes to firearms. To acquire a handgun or other restricted firearm, Canadians must first obtain a possession and acquisition licence which requires a firearms safety certificate, references, a guarantor and a detailed personal history. The bureaucratic process alone is enough to dissuade an impulsive gun purchase. Not that there isn’t an underground market for those with nefarious intentions. It’s unlikely criminals file paperwork. But the more difficult it is to acquire guns legally, the fewer guns are out there. And that makes it less likely some of those guns will eventually end up in the wrong hands illegally. ~ Black Press

Premier Clark ponders black ink, oil

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark has completed the traditional round of year-end interviews with legislative press gallery reporters.  Here are excerpts from my discussion with her, dealing with the Enbridge oil pipeline proposal and the balanced budget her government has promised to present in February. <I>TF: On the Enbridge project, are you getting the answers you want on safety?</I> PCC: No, we’re not. We’ve set out our position. The five conditions need to be met, period.   [B.C.’s conditions are “worldclass” land and marine spill prevention and response, meeting legal obligations for aboriginal consultation, passing federal-provincial environmental assessment and a “fair share” of financial benefits.] PCC: We need the oilpatch producers, the Alberta government

and the federal government to come to the table. We’ve been cross-examining Enbridge. We have not been getting any of the answers that we hoped to get. We haven’t gained a lot of comfort from that process. And none of the other condiTom tions are even close FLETCHER to being met. We are doing our own study of marine traffic. We want to understand the total number of ships that are out there plying our coast right now. Because all of them have fuel in them, and some are cargo ships that are big enough to have enough [bunker] fuel as a mini-tanker would. Part of this is trying to under-

stand where our level of Coast Guard protection needs to be today, in order to protect us should there be a spill from the existing traffic. <I>TF: Balancing the budget: the finance ministry’s current projections call for an upturn in natural gas royalties in the coming year. With the current glut of gas, isn’t that kind of far-fetched?</I> PCC: It is going to be difficult to present a balanced budget, but I think, because we’re going to build in some [forecast] allowance, as we always do, and because we’re going to be completely transparent about the assumptions that have led us there, and because we aren’t going to fiddle with any of the assumptions that we receive from the experts in the Ministry of Finance, it’s going to be quite clear that we have done it. We have come by a balanced budget

honestly. So when it comes to natural gas, you know that the assumption we use in the budget is based on a fairly complex formula that the Ministry of Finance has relied on for probably a decade now. We don’t fiddle with that. There are those who would say we should artificially lower the [revenue projection] number that we use. But if you artificially lower it, what’s to stand in the way of artificially raising it? You either accept the advice of your experts or you don’t. And they’re the experts, not the politicians. <I>TF: Right now we have a deficit gap of more than a billion dollars.

Progress

EFW coalition makes its case The Canadian Energy-FromWaste Coalition (CEFWC) would like to set the record straight on a few issues raised in your article “Opposition growing to Metro’s incinerator plan (December 11, 2012).” First, the notion that a “huge groundswell of opposition” is forming is an exaggeration by any measure as a recent IPSOS-Reid public opinion poll shows that 83% of British Columbians support energy-from-waste (EFW) as a means of managing garbage across the province. This has increased by 23% since 2004. And of those who think positively about EFW, almost two thirds support the use of EFW in their own community. Since BC municipalities are already responsible for the management of all waste within their boundaries, it’s curious that the BC Chamber of Commerce should suddenly oppose the idea of a government body controlling waste disposal. Rather than creating a monopoly, the Metro Vancouver Board is simply meeting its mandated obligation to manage a waste flow strategy that will achieve the diversion goals in its Zero Waste Plan. Of course the Plan includes bans and prohibitions that are designed entirely to encourage recycling. But the Plan places few restrictions on the 600,000 tonnes of commercial and institutional waste currently handled by private sector haulers. Nor is there anything heavyhanded about Metro’s approach, as the entire process has been subject to scores of well-attended public meetings, including a recent industry stakeholder information event involving more than 60 participants. So there will be an important and on-going role for the private sector in the management of waste in the Lower Mainland. Chamber president John Winter argues for jobs, but does not acknowledge that a typical EFW plant will employ hundreds of construction workers, and once operating could employ 40 to 60 fulltime workers at an average salary of $40,000 per year plus benefits. Mr. Winter goes on to say that an EFW plant offers no financial benefit to taxpayers, and yet EFW systems have the potential to strengthen local economic devel-

opment initiatives by 1) providing a key component in an integrated solid waste management system, 2) providing businesses and industries with long-term economical waste management services, 3) keeping waste management expenditures in the local community, 4) using the recoverable EFW to provide base load renewable power to complement local alternative energy initiatives, and 5) using recoverable materials to support local manufacturing. Moreover, the existing Metro Vancouver EFW plant is entirely self-funded and providing a revenue return to the municipality. ICBA president Philip Hochstein and Jan Field of the homebuilder’s association in the Fraser Valley are also wrong in stating that the Plan will force all solid waste to Metro Vancouver disposal sites; rather, Metro Vancouver may simply direct garbage to the most appropriate and properly licensed site in order to maximize diversion and any potential revenues. Any higher costs resulting from the Plan will be related to increased diversion rates, not because there are fewer options. It should also be pointed out that though a group of Vancouver city councillors are working to reduce the amount of waste collected in the region to 200,000 tonnes, Metro Vancouver already has some of the most aggressive diversion programs and one of the highest recycling rates in Canada, and yet the residents of the Region still send more than 1 million tonnes of garbage to disposal. This represents an amount that exceeds the capacity of Metroowned disposal sites. Presumably, the Chamber, ICBA and HBFV will have something else to say if Vancouver city council starts cutting into their hauling opportunities by successfully reducing waste volumes by 500%. Finally, Councillor Lum unfairly criticizes mass-burn EFW technology. In fact, EfW is a proven process for the safe disposal of post-recycled municipal solid waste (MSW) and the generation of clean, renewable energy. These power plants operate with state-of-the-art air emissions control systems run by qualified and experienced professionals certified by relevant state

agencies and provincial authorities. EfW facilities net reducers of greenhouse gases and help to combat climate change. Every ton of waste diverted from a landfill offsets one (1) ton of GHG emissions (CO2 equivalent), while saving the energy equivalent of a barrel of oil or a quarter ton of coal. They also significantly contribute to local recycling efforts by recovering thousands of tons of scrap metal from the waste stream that would otherwise be landfilled. A typical 1,500 tonnes per day (TPD) EfW facility produces enough clean, renewable electricity for 45,000 homes, saving more than 450,000 barrels of oil each year and lessening our reliance on fossil fuel power plants that release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere when coal or oil are burned. Around the world, approximately 800 plants provide sustainable, reliable, economical solid waste services to municipalities with no adverse health or environmental impacts. The most recent development in Canada is the Durham York Energy Centre which will serve the sustainable waste disposal needs of the Ontario regions of Durham and York. The facility, which will operate under some of the most stringent environmental requirements in the world, will begin operations in the latter half of 2014. There are multiple EfW projects under development and/or construction in Alberta and Ontario. Other recent North American developments include expansion projects in Honolulu, Hawaii, Hillsborough County, Florida, and Lee County, Florida. The Canadian Energy-FromWaste Coalition (CEfWC) represents industry, associations, and other stakeholders committed to sustainable environmental and waste management policies. It stands for the promotion of energy-from-waste (EfW) technology for the management of residual materials within the context of an integrated solid waste management system.

The RCMP’s Stuff the Cruiser event in the Upper Fraser Valley is being called a “resounding” success - especially in cash donations to food banks. “The food items collected were the same as last year’s totals,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “However, the cash donations this year were almost double.” RCMP cruisers were parked outside participating businesses in four communities in the Upper Fraser Valley Dec. 15 and the public invited to make cash or food donations to local food banks or the Salvation Army. In Chilliwack, $2,989.20 in cash was donated and 7,500 food items collected. In Agassiz, $533 in cash was donated and two truckloads of food delivered. In Hope, $619 in cash was donated and 1,400 lbs. of food collected. In Boston Bar, $904 in cash was donated and 1,125 lbs. of food

The book doesn’t take a stand, one way or the other, about gravel removal. “That’s not our job to say no to gravel removal,” Glavin says. But the flood risk argument that government agencies have used to justify removing gravel doesn’t hold water, the authors say. “All of the research shows it has had no measurable impact on flood control,” Glavin says. “If you’re going to make the case that it’s for flood control, it’s not the sort of thing you can argue with a straight face ... it’s just not honest to frighten people when there’s absolutely no evidence,” he says. “We acknowledge and accept that this is a working river,” Parfitt says. “What we’re arguing is making it work for the people and fish and ecosystems that depend on that stretch.” And that’s going to take the “collaborative land-use plan” that Angelo advocates. One obstacle to such a plan is the sheer number of “stakeholders” in the reach, from private land owners to First Nations and municipal governments. “With so many stakeholders, maybe the provincial government can play an enabling role and start work on a collaborative plan,” Angelo says. The Fraser Basin Council started a Lower Fraser Collaborative Initiative last year to bring together stakeholders in the lower part of the river, but Angelo says a separate plan focused on the reach itself is needed.

“Given the amazing values of the Heart of the Fraser, along with the very specific challenges it faces, a more specific collaborative plan is needed,” he says. “I think we need a process that’s more focused on this area, if we are to make real headway — and it should also be a process that looks indepth at government-related issues and obstacles.” Glavin says in the course of writing the book he came to have “a lot of sympathy for the gravel industry in B.C.” struggling with the province’s carbon tax. “We are actually importing gravel from China,” he says, and the BC Gravel Producers’ Association has asked the B.C. government for an equivalent tax on imports from countries that have no carbon tax. But the authors also contend there are other gravel sources on Vancouver Island, which are shipping gravel to Hawaii relatively cheaply. “There’s no reason not to barge it to points where it’s needed in B.C.,” Parfitt says, and reduce the amount taken from the reach. But since a moratorium on gravel removal was lifted in 2004, the debate between government agencies and conservationists has deteriorated to one where “people tend to talk over each other,” Glavin says. “Let’s have a grown-up conversation,” he urges, about the future — or the fate — of the reach. province,rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Fly ash concerns Fly Ash from page 3 The FVRD insists that problems related to toxic ash and its concerns about air quality will continue as long as Metro Vancouver continues down its path to “old-fashioned waste management methods like incineration.” Cache Creek Mayor John Ranta also wants to get to the bottom of the inconsistent test results, saying that he hasn’t yet seen compelling evidence that the lab is to blame. “If the lab results are that inconclusive, that we can do a test, find it exceeds the limit, and do another test and find it passes, then what about all the other tests that have been done from 2000 to the present day saying it passed?” he asked “Should we be re-testing that and maybe find that some would fail?” Ranta also wondered if the samples to be re-tested are different in any way from the originals that failed. The environment ministry has so far taken the position that none of the fly ash needs to be removed from the Cache Creek landfill. Metro Vancouver is currently sending incinerator fly ash to a hazardous waste disposal facility in Alberta. But Gaetz said it is concerning that the ministry has yet to require removal of the incinerator ash that was dumped at the Cache Creek landfill. “In matters of public health, one would expect the ministry of environment to err on the side of caution and remove the suspect ash from the landfill,” she said. Fraser Valley politicians, including Chilliwack MLA John Les, oppose Metro’s plan to build a waste-toenergy facility that would burn 370,000 tonnes of waste per year - 30 per cent more than the Burnaby incinerator. Shipping ash to a landfill near Hinton, Alberta, is costing Metro an extra $50 per tonne, potentially adding up to an extra $500,000 per year, if it continues indefinitely. - with files by Jeff Nagel

Kim McLandress: Champion of restorative justice Chilliwack Restorative Justice Society as a practicum student and has been there ever since. Today, Kim is their Executive Director and is responsible for all of the clients, the active files, the society’s 60 volunteers, public relations, comAna munity MACEDO education and communication with the RCMP. She also liaises with other agencies that her society can refer clients to. “We are a non-profit organization so there are always grant applications to be filled out and the on-going fundraising efforts.” At the moment, Kim has the assistance of two other staff members but in her capacity as executive director, she is tasked with overseeing the entire program. The restorative justice model often includes a face-to-face meeting with the victim, which can have a powerful personal impact on the offender. “There is always the hope that this helps them to make better life choices.” While the program mainly involves youth offenders, this isn’t to say that adults are excluded. “In 2003 it was decided that we would also work with adults,” she said. The restorative justice model gives first-time, non-violent offenders a chance to own up to their actions while giving victims a role in developing meaningful consequences. This is perhaps one of the reasons that the program boasts an 85 per cent success rate. There is no doubt that Kim is busy, but she prefers it that way. She is the current president of the Chilliwack Curling Club and curls three times a week. “My dad curled but it wasn’t something that I ever did. Then when I moved here, I didn’t know anyone and after going through the newspaper and finding an ad for curling,

I decided to give it a try and found that I have a passion for the sport. We’re going to the provincials in Cloverdale for a chance to go to the Scotties,” she beamed. She is also a member of the Mt. Cheam Rotary Club; she plays soccer regularly and chairs the Citizens Advisory Committee through the Chilliwack Community PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT: Offers valid until January 2, 2013.

s Kim McLandress was growing up in Grande Prairie, Alberta, she could often be found at the hockey rink. It was a family thing. She was there to cheer on her two, older brothers as both of them played hockey while their father was a hockey coach. Although Kim didn’t play hockey, she was equally as athletic and active as her brothers. “I was heavily involved in gymnastics and dance but volleyball was my main focus. My team even went as far as the provincials and the nationals,” she enthused. Her father was a salesman with the oil industry while her mother was a bookkeeper, something that she continues to do even today. Her family was active and they supported one another. At the age of 16, Kim was the victim of a property crime and this led her to dedicate her life to helping other victims of crime. “The thieves broke into our house but they only took my stuff. This was very odd and the police thought that the crime must have been committed by people that I knew. They were caught and I knew of them but they attended a different high school so it wasn’t like I knew them personally. After they were caught, they went through the court process but it was revictimizing. I had questions but I didn’t have a voice,” she explained. Kim was disillusioned and disappointed by the system because there was no accountability. “They left the court room as if it was a huge joke. It wasn’t as if I wanted them to go to jail but I wanted them to be held accountable,” she said. At 19, she began attending Mt. Royal College in Calgary and as a criminology student; Kim was introduced to the concept of ‘restorative justice’. Her professor, who had taught previously at UCFV, told her that Chilliwack offered such a program. She finished up her year at Mt. Royal and moved to Abbotsford in the Fall of 1999, to continue her degree. In 2000, she began working for the

Correctional Centre. Kim is clearly passionate about the restorative justice model and not a day goes by that she doesn’t acknowledge how fortunate she is. “I love going to work. I’m busy and active but I love that about my life. It’s a great feeling when you know that you can actually make a difference.”

Kim McLandress is executive director of Chilliwack Restorative Justice (and a passionate curler). JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

You may have already discovered this reality: when it comes to gardening gifts, passionate gardeners are very particular, so here are some suggestions that you might find helpful. There are so many great gardening books available today. It is well worth a browse in the gardening section of your favourite book store. Gardeners love quality books with great information and lots of coloured photographs. The Sunset Western Garden Book is probably one of the most useful. You might also consider a gift subscription to one of our excellent BC gardening magazines, like

Gardens West. At the high end of gardening gifts, a greenhouse is a present to be enjoyed for many years. My advice is to buy the best quality which Brian usually Minter means aluminium and glass construction. Greenhouses are a great way to extend the growing season and a useful place for winter storage of less hardy plants and bulbs. The latest trend in Europe is a conservatory added to the home.

It’s a wonderful way to bring the outside inside and makes an awesome living space. A less expensive alternative is a windowsill greenhouse, which, by the way, makes a perfect spot to grow almost anything. If your gardener has a greenhouse, accessories such as heating pads and cables, quality watering accessories, like the world famous English Hawes watering cans, and maximum-minimum thermometers are always appreciated. Attracting wildlife to gardens has become quite a trend these days. Birdbaths and birdbath heaters, feeders and bird houses are great gifts for children and shut-ins. Birding is the number two leisure activity in North America, and birding accessories are a nice present for those who enjoy this hobby. During winter cold spells, the birds would appreciate some help too. There are a whole host of gardening gift ideas like quality tools, gardeners’ soap, richly toned wind chimes and gardening videos. There are also ergonomically designed tools for easy of use. For those gardeners who are finding it a little more difficult to kneel down and get back up, handy kneelers, which double as a seat, are awesome. Complete gardening ‘wardrobes’ are available from gardening hats, gloves, aprons and footwear to knee pads and garden tool belts. A gift certificate to a favourite gardening store is also a valued treasure. Water in the garden is very popular these days, and everything from pre-formed ponds to pumps, fountains,

filters, waterfalls and LED underwater lights are huge hits as gifts. A ‘vanishing water’ feature, with water bubbling up through predrilled basalt stones, is the next big thing. A pump and kit that houses this beautiful patio feature makes a wonderful gift to be enjoyed for years. By stepping out of the box a wee bit, there are some wonderful European garden tours out there, and Donna Dawson, at icangarden.com provides some of the very best. Garden makeovers are all the rage today, and a gift certificate from a quality garden designer is also a wonderful gift. Tickets to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle this coming February 20-24 would be a treasured gift (tickets can be purchased online). Tickets or season passes to some of our wonderful Lower Mainland or Vancouver Island gardens would also be a splendid idea. Helping out folks in other parts of the world is very important and according to World Vision, 77% of Canadians would prefer to give a gift that helps others. By sending a donation for an ‘agricultural gift’ from their catalogue, you could provide Moringa trees in Africa, drought resistant olive trees in the Middle East or help a family start an orchard so they can provide their own food. You can contact World Vision Canada at 1-866595-5550 or by email at info@worldvision.ca. Most gardeners appreciate something unique and different. Quality and usefulness are perhaps the two most important criteria to keep in mind. I hope this helps.

The Chilliwack

Progress Jennifer

Feinberg

Friskie offers Real Tribute to the King Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Some Elvis fans never got to see The King perform live. Randy ‘Elvis’ Friskie is the closest thing according to some who would know. He’s bringing his Vegas show band to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Jan. 5 for his Real Tribute to the King of Rock and Roll. He’ll sing three decades of hits, with some tantalizing special guests. Because it’s the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ Aloha tour, Friskie is putting a big emphasis on hits from the famous Hawaiian trip of 1973. “We picked what we think are some of the best moments.” A few gospel songs, and some clips of Elvis live are coming, with a little high-tech help and a duet of Elvis and Celine Dion. “We haven’t done Chilliwack in a long time,” he tells The Progress. He’s taking a break from his gruelling two-hour gym workout and chatting on his cell phone. Friskie has been an entertainer his whole life. He comes by it honestly. He’s won contests in Vegas and toured all over with his tribute act. “My dad played 14 different instruments. We’d go camping and pull into the place with a full sound system. Everyone would know there’d be a dance that weekend.” He’s looking forward to bringing the Elvis experience to the glorious Cultural Centre for the very first time. “I just love the feeling of the theatre. It’s the setup. My dad taught me when you’re doing a show to treat the audience like your best friends. I like to laugh and joke. In some of the theatres I play, I can’t even jump off the stage. “But this room is so intimate, I’m just going to have a blast, and the band is amazing.” His show sold out three times in Las Vegas. “It’s going to be high energy and lots of fun.” Band leader Jake Stolz of Chilliwack, of the band Appaloosa is joining Friskie, along with his daughter Cassandra Friskie, Uptown Horns of Kelowna, and more special guests from near and far, and a few surprises. “We put together the best show we could. Elvis really was the best live, so we always try to put the best Elvis experience for Elvis fans. “I’ve had 13-year-old kids with purple hair come up to me and say, ‘I get it now.’ “Maybe their mom was always a huge Elvis fan, they’ll say, but they never got the whole thing until now. That’s why I keep doing this, when I hear kids with purple hair say something like that.” Randy Friskie’s Real Tribute To The King of Rock and Roll – Elvis Presley at the Cultural Centre, Jan. 5, tickets: $39.50 (incl. tax & sc). They’ll be collecting blanket or a coat donations for street people to be distributed by Phil and Friends. 604.391.SHOW (7469).

Clay equipment donated to the Cultural Centre Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

It’s being called a “generous” parting gift.

C h i l l i w a c k Community Arts Council is donating $35,000 worth of clay equipment to the Chilliwack

Cultural Centre, as the Arts Council prepares to relocate on the south side of town. “We will be out of

the building as of next Thursday, and we felt that since we spent all this money on the marvelous equipment, we

wanted to give it back to the community,” said Joanne Huston, president of the Arts Council. “What better way

than to present it to the Cultural Centre?” It’s a fitting legacy from the Chilliwack Arts Centre to the new arts

facility. The equipment includes 10 potters’ wheels, two kilns, a slab roller and a clay extruder. The mirrors are being donated and staying in the Odlum Brown dance studio. Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Society president Patti Lawn called it a very “generous” offer from the Arts Council, consisting of “top quality equipment” which the board unanimously accepted with appreciation. It could have been sold instead. “We do have the right space for it,” Lawn said. “And even better if the Arts Council down the road wants to do something in conjunction with the Cultural Centre on it, they can do that. “The whole goal is providing an opportunity for people in the community to work with clay in a wonderful setting.” The decision to donate the equipment was also a unanimous vote by the Arts Council board. “It’s fabulous,” added Lawn. “It would have been difficult for us to pay to equip the clay room. The fact that it’s already there means we can just proceed with programming.” They’re looking at starting new class classes at the Cultural Centre come February 2013.

Angel Tree donations help fill Chilliwack hampers For the third consecutive year Envision Financial’s Angel Tree

program will be delivering Christmas joy to hundreds of local fami-

lies. All 20 Envision branches displayed a decorated Christmas

Sarah FortisBC, Dispatch Coordinator

A safe holiday is a happy holiday Make safety a priority this holiday season with these simple tips: • Never kick or hit your meter if ice builds up. Call us for assistance at 1-888-224-2710. • After a snowfall, brush snow away from your meters by hand and clear a path for the safety of our meter readers. • Around your fireplace, consider using a hearth safety gate to help protect small children from the heated glass.

tree with ornaments that represented a child, senior or food bank. Members of the community were invited to take an ornament from the tree and return it with a new and unwrapped gift or non-perishable food item. The response was tremendous – 1,368 gifts, 3,400 pounds of food and almost $15,000 were distributed to 21 charities throughout the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Kitimat.  “Programs like Angel Tree are vitally important to helping us provide a brighter Christmas for families throughout Chilliwack,” says Jody Hanninen, Christmas sharing coordinator at Chilliwack Community Services. “Last year we delivered over 600 hampers with gifts to families in need. It takes a great deal of community support and we thank Envision for partnering with us to help make it happen.”

Fraser Health is reminding the public to take a few simple steps to avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital. • care during office hours, call your family doctor or the doctor on call for the practice or clinic. • Consider going to a local walk-in clinic. Call ahead to check the clinic’s hours. • Try to see your doctor before the holidays, if you have any developing health concerns. • Know the holiday hours for your local pharmacy or drug store, and ensure your prescriptions are up to date and filled prior to the holidays.

• Call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 for confidential health information and non-emergency services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For deaf and hearingimpaired assistance (TTY), call 7-1-1. • If you are concerned about a possible poisoning or exposure

to a toxic substance, call Poison Control at 1-800-567-8911. If at any time you feel you require urgent medical attention,

works, whereas grateful receiving, acceptance of grace, is faith. The positive psychology folks encourage the development of a sense of gratitude. One of their exercises is to think of a person to whom you are grateful that you have never properly or fully thanked. Write out what you are grateful for and then contact that person and read it to them.         Awe Finally, think about awe.  Awe is a sense of the mystery and grandeur of life. Awe is another positive emotion that contributes to health.  You can see that without a sense of awe, life can seem flat, pedestrian and depressing.  When we are “in awe” possibilities seem limitless and life is vibrant. Awe is core to spirituality and a great anti-depressant.    May the rich emotions of the season be yours!

songs and themes emphasize joy. Joy is one of the positive emotions that Barbara Fredrickson’s research found contributes to health and happiness.  I think of joy as beginning to see the world like a child, full of excitement and anticipation.  Christmas of course is about waiting for a child to be born and seeing in the vulnerability of an infant in a manager, the Divine.  If we pay attention, we can re-capture and cultivate joy in our lives. Religion and science both endorse this.   Savouring Another emotional experience associated with happiness is savouring.  To savour means to take time to become absorbed in the present. Look around and drink in the people you see. Notice the beauty of their particularity and the onceonly nature of human experiencing.  Try it at a gathering this season. Savouring isn’t only for food. Look around, savour the people and the moment.     Gratitude The flip side of giving is receiving. Do you ever find it tough to receive without a sense of obligation? Commercialized Christmas is full of invitations to feel indebted.  Learning to graciously receive is core to the spiritual life.  Obligation is the old religious notion of

Some readers will know that I once worked in Christian Ministry as a pastor. Now as a psychologist, I’m excited to see where my new and old professions intersect.  In some way I think that both professions attempt to answer the Rob same quesLees tion; “how can I have a good life?”.  Through the fall, my colleagues Marie Amos, Eryn Wicker and I  have written about positive psychology. This is an effort to use the scientific tools of psychology, applying them to the question of happiness and the good life. The Christmas season brings many of the convergent practices from religion and psychology to mind. Let me remind you of a few. Giving Christmas is the season of giving. It is better to give than receive. Yes, we know or so Faith tells us so. Turns out, there is fairly solid empirical evidence that altruism and giving to others is one of the quickest routes to happiness. Forget about Loto 6/49.  Do something for others.  Psychology and faith both affirm this.   Joy Christmas

Reasons to believe Goaltender Mitch Gillam is this year’s BCHL MVP, and it’s not even close, writes Jacob Bestebroer

Abbotsford Pilot teammates Joel Atkinson (left) and Eric Wieking (right) will face off Sunday night at Twins Rinks in a hockey game between Chilliwack and Sardis secondary school students. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Falcons and Storm clash on ice Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

A high school rivalry ignites in a new venue Sunday night as Chilliwack secondary school students face their Sardis secondary foes in a ‘friendly’ hockey match. The game is being held at Twin Rinks with a 7 p.m. puck drop. Jake Foley and Joel Atkinson, both CSS students, have put it together as an entrepreneurship project, hoping to tap into the competitive animosity that exists between the two schools. “I have friends at Sardis, but as soon as they have that different colour jersey on, you want to beat them,” said Foley, who has played basketball at CSS. “We talked to parents and teachers and they say they used to have hockey games like this in the old Coliseum. The rivarly was huge.” Foley and Atkinson only had the slightest idea

what they were doing at the start. They knew they’d need some ice, but had no idea of the cost and availability. “I had to go on the internet and go down to City Hall,” Atkinson said. “My mom lent me the money, and now I’m hoping enough people show up for me to pay her back.” The cost of ice was $108 per hour. They booked an hour and a half, then went looking for players. Atkinson plays junior B hockey for the Abbotsford Pilots of the Pacific Junior Hockey League. He recruited Pilots teammate Eric Wieking as his Sardis contact. Wieking didn’t need much armtwisting to agree. “I went to Chilliwack middle school, right across the street from CSS, and when I left for Sardis I heard about it a lot,” Wieking laughed. “So I’m here to prove I made the right decision coming to

this side of town.” There has been plenty of chirping in the lead up the game, moreso from the CSS side. Not that the Sardis guys are angels. They’re giving almost as good as they’re getting. “I’ll just let my play do the talking and point to the scoreboard at the end of the game,” Wieking said. “We’re going to have a pretty good team.” “We’ve got a couple junior B guys and midget AAA guys, and other than that not a lot,” Atkinson said. “But we’ll come together as a team and play the underdog role.” While Atkinson and Wieking do their thing yapping at each other and gathering skaters, Foley has been left to deal with promotion. Charging $5 a head, he figures on needing at least 68 butts in seats to break even on all of their expenses. Foley has put up post-

ers around town and contacted local media. If early feedback is to be believed, there may be upwards of 120 people in the stands. “It’s been an eye-opening experience approaching people you’ve never met before and asking them to give you their time or their money,” he said. “I think I have pretty good people skills, but it’s been good to see people wanting to help out.” Bragging rights are the big prize on the line Sunday night, but Foley and Atkinson hope Monday morning’s spreadsheet will show no red, and hopefully, a bit of green. “We haven’t made any money yet, but we’re prospecting to make more than $50,” Foley said. “And we get to keep the profits, so any money I take will go towards a new, better car.” “Any money I make will go towards new rims for my car,” Atkinson echoed. And don’t forget to pay back your mom.

With the Chilliwack Chiefs regular season more than half over we have a big enough sample size to form solid opinions and to calculate our expectations of how deep this team is capable of going come playoff time. (Small qualifier: Expectations of several BCHL teams will change for the better or worse at or near the Jan. 10 trade deadline). Right now you may be thinking, “Look at their record. It’s one of the best in the league. Of course this team should be expected to go on a long playoff run.’ I can’t really argue that, but just simply stating that would get me nowhere near the 500 words I need to fill this column. So let’s look at a few more reasons to be optimistic about this team. Goaltender Mitch Gillam is this year’s BCHL MVP, and it’s not even close. He leads the BCHL in goals against average (2.14), save percentage (.939), wins (18) and shutouts (four). But it’s more than just the stats. In last Friday’s 3-0 win against Nanaimo, 10 minutes in I thought to myself, ‘Gillam’s got this.’ I didn’t mean that he was going to win the game by himself. The rest of the team was still going to have to play well and do their jobs. But if they did, the Chiefs were in little danger of losing that game because he was at his best. When your goaltender can create that type of calming influence on the rest of the team, it bodes well for positive results. The Chiefs penalty killing is the best in the league. At

just under 87 per cent, it’s the best a Chiefs team has ever been at this stage of the season. For most of the first part of the season I expected that to drop closer to 80 per cent, but at this point it’s obvious this team is extremely good at killing penalties. Gillam is a big part of it but it’s more than just him. The defensemen and forwards are doing a great job of keeping it simple and keeping teams to the perimeter. Chiefs teams always play on the edge. That’s a big part of their success but it does lead to penalties. Knowing your chances of killing off those penalties is so high allows you to play on the edge with confidence. From the outside looking in it’s impossible to know the full impact a coaching staff has on a team. Having said that and having been around Harvey Smyl for as long as I have, I can tell you with full confidence that this team will not be out-coached. Coaching is not just about implementing systems and writing X’s and O’s on a blackboard. It’s also about understanding your players and their personalities. If you can do that, you will get the best out of your players. Smyl and his staff do that. Hope to see you all at Fill the Rink for the Food Bank Night on Dec. 29. All tickets for that game versus Surrey are just $5 with a food donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank. jb@chilliwackchiefs.net

Midget Thunderbirds limp into break It has been a tough year so far for the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds of the BC Major Midget Hockey League. Formerly known as the Fraser Valley Bruins, this year’s squad includes four Chilliwack skaters in forwards Austin Wellsby and Kyle Westeringh, defenceman Kyle Hazelwood and goaltender Josh Matzek. Heading into the Christmas

break, the team sports a record of 4-18-2, good for ninth place in the 11 team league. In their last two games before the break, the Thunderbirds faced the last place Thompson Blazers (3-19-2), dropping two on the road. In Saturday’s opener, the Blazers opened up a threegoal first period lead and

hung on for a 3-1 win. The Thunderbirds got their only goal in the third period, with Mitch Biermann (Abbotsford) lighting the lamp. The Sunday rematch was a shootout, with the Blazers taking an 8-5 final. Hazelwood and Wellsby picked up assists on the second Fraser Valley goal, scored by Abbotsford’s Dylan

Kooner. Wellsby assisted on a Virtanen strike in the second period. Fraser Valley returns to action Jan. 5-6 with back to back home games against the South Island Royals (7-12-5). The first game will be played at Prospera Centre with a 2:15 p.m. puck drop. Get info online at bchockey. net/mml/MML.aspx

Obituaries

BOURKE Roderick Francis

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Roderick Francis Bourke; a much-loved BOURKE father, grandfather, great-grandfather, husband, brother, and uncle to a wonderful bunch of family and friends in Canada, New Zealand, and around the globe. He passed away peacefully at the age of 91, on Dec. 8, 2012, at Waverly Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village in Chilliwack, BC. He is survived by his second wife, Ruth McKitrick; daughter, Maureen Halsall (John); grandchildren: Roderick Halsall (Lisa), Noeline Borg (Wiley); and greatgrandchildren: Alexis, Ethan, and Charlotte; as well as brother, Ian Bourke; and sister, Noeline Eglinton. Rod was predeceased by his son David, first wife Marjorie, and brothers, Tony and Denny. Rod was born in the small town of Pahiatua, New Zeland. He spent his childhood on the family farm before enlisting in the army at the age of 19, later transferring to the

Royal New Zealand Air Force. He completed his pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training in Canada in the Air Commonwealth Traning Program, earning his wings in 1942. He joined the RNZAF #488 Mosquito Night Squadron, flying numerous patrols and sorties in Europe through the end of the war. He returned to New Zealand via Canada where he married his sweetheart, Marjorie Smith. They lived in Pahiatua for two years before settling in Canada. There, Rod found work in the lumber industry, progressing through a number of lumber grading and inspecting roles culminating in his job as supervisor with the Cariboo Lumber Manufacturers Association in Williams Lake, BC. Rod and Marjorie spent many happy years there, where Rod was a lifetime member of both the Royal Canadian Legion and the Williams Lake Gold and Country Club. On his retirement in 1985, they moved to Chilliwack to be closer to their daughter, Maureen, and her family. After Marjorieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death in 1990, Rod lived on his own until 1995, at which time he met Ruth through square dancing. They were married

May 5, 1995 and had a great life together, enjoying many trips and helping local senior citizens. He was a kind, generous loving man and performed a great Haka. In April 2010, Rod suffered a fall, which resulted in a broken hip. Upon his release from hospital, he moved into Waverly Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village where he spent the remainder of his days. The staff made Rod welcome, and provided outstanding care and support. At Rodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request, there will be no service, however, the family will host a memorial tea at The Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recreation Centre at 9400 College St, Chilliwack, BC between 2:00 and 4:00 pm on Friday, Dec. 28, 2012 (across from Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Funeral Home). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of your choice.

PURVIS John Michael

It is with great sadness that we announce John Michael Purvis passed away peacefully on PURVIS Dec. 7, 2012 at Chilliwack General Hospital. John was born in England but soon made Canada his home and proudly served this nation for 23 years. A retired sergeant of the Canadian Armed Forces, John was a true soldier and fighter through to the end. John is lovingly remembered by his wife of 53 years, Gladys; his five children and six grandchildren.
