Report recommends closure of site this year

Black Press

The end of the Hope landfill is looming. With only 10 years left in its lifespan, and years of controversy due to environmental concerns, the District of Hope is now faced with a decision. The landfill operation can be extended through to 2022, or closed immediately. Last week, council was given a report outlining a plan to close the site, written by CAO John Fortoloczky with the help of Earl Rowe, former town manager and Couns. Peter Robb and Scott Medlock. While it outlines three ways the district could keep operating the site, the report does recommend its closure. Council needed to make a decision at last night’s meeting, after press dead-

line. There is an urgency for action, as it dovetails with a construction project taking place in Burnaby. If council voted in favour of immediate closure, JJM Construction Ltd. would start hauling waste to the site on March 1 in order to fill the site to capacity. That waste would come from Norampac Mill in Burnaby. It is expected that the transfer of waste from the mill to the landfill would take until the end of July, at a rate of 50 trucks and transfers per day. There would also be a period of rock blasting, throughout March and April, as JJM prepares a quarry area and lining of an expansion area to enlarge the landfill capacity. The landfill would be fully closed by Sept. 30 this year. JJM would bear the costs of the costs of the closure, and would provide rental income on the property.

First Class Waste would build and operate a transfer station, and Hope’s solid waste would be sent by rail to the Roosevelt Regional Landfill in Washington State. One of the options to extend use of the facility to 2022 involves building an $8-million leachate treatment facility. The landfill is located “in an unfortunate location on land” with a steep slope toward the Fraser River, and adjacent to First Nations land. The site began as a “crude dump site” similar to those found in many small towns across the province. The district has run the site since 1974. The current leachate treatment pond encroaches on Union Bar land, and last year Chief Andy Alex told media he has been trying for decades to have the landfill shut down. In 2009, the Ministry of Environ-

ment sent the district a non-compliance notice. It cited issues such as lack of cover, lack of cells, excessive litter, poor surface water and ineffective leachate treatment. The cost of maintaining the site, which serves 6,690 residents in 2,662 homes was $1,722,100 in 2011. The cost of continuing to maintain the site until 2022 would total $8.4 million, plus closure costs of $25 million. However, closing the site won’t stop the leaching, the report acknowledges. There would be a need for treatment and monitoring, at a cost of $56,000 annually for 25 years. However, the district will save $400,000 a year by not operating a transfer station. In addition, the funds the District sets aside each year for permanent closure ($175,000) can be diverted to other infrastructure needs.

Are you unemployed, aged 15-30yrs? The Youth Skills Development Project (Feb. 18 - April 26) is looking for participants! Program offers: • Minimum wage • Certificate training • Employability skills • Local Job Placements This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy – Skills Link Program.

Vomberg, who was awarded her medal in a ceremony at the Hope Legion on Saturday, has been active in the community in a number of capacities, highlighted by 39 years of service with the Ladies Auxiliary to the Royal Canadian Legion. During that time, she has filled most of the organization’s executive positions and served on numerous committees. Vomberg has also been involved with the Girl Guides of Canada, and was on the founding executive for Hope Community Services. At her presentation in Chilliwack last Thursday, Schudeleit was heralded as the “saviour” of Boston Bar. She is well known in the Boston Bar area, both for her volunteer work and her love of gardening. She helped create a community park on Gibson Road and is celebrated for her rose garden at the local RCMP detachment. But one achievement stood out above others at Thursday’s ceremony. Schudeleit successfully brought cable television to the Fraser Canyon. In her presentation of the award, Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony cited Schudeleit’s “consistent commitment to the community of Boston Bar and the Fraser Canyon (where she has lived her entire life), and her successful campaign to provide television cable service to all residents of Boston Bar, regardless of income.”

Congratulations to the

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award Winners

JENNA HAUCK / BLACK PRESS

Dr. Ernie Murakami speaks after being given the Chilliwack-Hope Citizenship Award during the diamond jubilee awards ceremony at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel on Thursday evening.

Murakami recognized for medical work, community activism First recipient of Chilliwack-Hope Citizenship Award

A man renowned for his medical insights, and loved for his community involvement, was honored with the first-ever ChilliwackHope Citizenship Award at a ceremony in Chilliwack on Thursday. Dr. Ernie Murakami, a noted and sometimes controversial expert on lyme disease, practiced medicine in Hope for almost five decades. Now retired, he remains committed to the community of Hope, where his love of sports, music and political activism has earned him the region’s respect. The award was presented by ChilliwackHope MLA Gwen O’Mahony as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal presentations. While the selection committee was honing its list of deserving nominees, said O’Mahony, it decided to create an award that could be presented annually. “It just wasn’t enough to have a onetime event,” she said. Murakami’s career

in medicine was born out of a desire to help others after watching the death of a friend and the near-death of his sister. Emerging desperately poor from a Japanese internment camp following the end of the Second World War, he was aided in pursuing his dream to study medicine. He graduated from UBC medical school in 1958 and joined a medical practice in Hope, where he has lived ever since. Murakami is wellknown in the community, not just because of a medical practice that spanned nearly half a century, but also because of his involvement. Active in the local Lions Club, he’s also an avid hockey fan and referee. He helped build the Hope Arena, the Fraser Hope Lodge, and fought for the preservation of the Fraser Canyon Hospital. During this time, Murakami’s fascination with lyme disease grew. The disease is spread through the bite of an infected tick.

However, treatment is much more complex. Indeed, as Murakami discovered, there is no consensus within the medical community on diagnosis and treatment. Murakami established the Dr. Ernie Murakami Centre for Lyme Research, Education and Assistance. He treated thousands of

people for the disease and earned recognition from around the world. But he also generated controversy, as the BC College of Physicians and Surgeons questioned his approach. In 2008 he retired from practicing medicine, but says he remains committed to bridging the gap in the understanding of this

Doyle leaves, B.C. loses

The B.C. Auditor-General, John Doyle, will not accept an extension to his term, as offered by a legislative committee which initially said it did not want to renew his contract. He has instead accepted an appointment as auditor-general of the Australian state of Victoria. Doyle has rubbed the Liberal government the wrong way on many occasions. One such Liberal was MLA Eric Foster, whose expenses in regards to renovations of his constituency office in Vernon were not properly accounted for. The building was owned by his constituency assistant’s husband, and even though Foster was being audited, he chaired the committee which recommended Doyle not be re-appointed. Another area where Doyle dismayed the government was in looking into the $6 million in legal expenses paid by the government after Dave Basi and Bob Virk agreed to plead guilty in the B.C. Rail corruption case. Doyle said Tuesday that he was prepared to stay in B.C. for a full second term of six years. However, the committee only offered him two more years, after prodding from the premier, and he wasn’t prepared to take that, given how political the entire issue had become. An auditor-general is expected to ask thorough questions and act as an advocate for taxpayers. Doyle has done that very well, and he will be sorely missed. – Black Press

Independent MLAs have a dream

Tom Fletcher Imagine a province where party leaders are chosen in an independently supervised vote, with 12-year-olds, dead people and pets prevented from voting. Imagine a province where roving gangs of influence-seekers aren’t allowed to join multiple parties, and the rule is actually enforced. One where corporations and unions have to advertise in their own name instead of financing political parties and then disclosing millions in donations months after the election is over. Imagine a province where elections are held based on audited financial statements, not a collection of election promises that will

Adrian Dix won the NDP leadership with the help of bags of $10 bills stapled to new memberships. As parties go to online voting, multiple PIN numbers may be activated from the same phone number or the same address. These and other glaring problems with our party-based political system were highlighted last week in a set of reforms proposed by three independent MLAs. Vicki Huntington broke the party choke-hold on B.C. politics by getting elected as an independent in Delta South in 2009. Bob Simpson was kicked out of the NDP caucus shortly after winning re-election for the party in Cariboo North, because he dared to criticize then-leader Carole

James for a lack of policy specifics. They were belatedly joined by Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen, who quit the B.C. Liberals in an orchestrated move to the B.C. Conservatives, and then quit that party soon after. Van Dongen does not have the credibility of the others to speak on integrity, given his self-serving party antics and his questionable decision to hire his fiancée  and pay her one and a half salaries to serve as his constituency assistant. Leaving that aside, there are some good ideas in the independents’ reform package. One is to give backbench MLAs a meaningful role in policy-making. Simpson gave the example of Prince George MLA Shirley Bond’s term as education minister, where she had to reverse ministry policies that didn’t make sense in rural school districts. The all-party

standing committee on education could have prevented this error, he said, but it didn’t because it never meets. The party voting irregularities described above could be addressed by giving Elections BC authority to supervise party leadership votes, the way it does elections and referenda. There are unknown costs for this, and other problems. For instance, should the Marijuana Party be subject to this, or the Work Less Party, should either one muster enough organization to stage a leadership contest? The independents had high hopes for one fundamental reform, moving B.C.’s set election date from the spring to the fall. This would take a simple amendment. The idea is for the government to table the annual budget, present the audited public accounts for the previous year, then have an election that

Start thinking about your vote

I’m afraid it’s that time for all of us in British Columbia to start thinking about who we are going to vote for in the provincial election this Spring. It’s not a decision that I’m taking lightly, especially when I think about what the future holds for the younger members of my family.  One thing I would like to say, however, is how appalled I am about the unfair treatment Premier Christy Clark seems to get. Why this is so, I

don’t really know. But she does not seem to be getting a fair shake at all. But then, putting on my sexist hat, perhaps it’s not very surprising. As a woman myself, and having worked and competed in a man’s world, it once again demonstrates to me that a woman must juggle home, work and perception on a daily basis in a way that her male counterparts never have to. And of all the woman who have ever been put in a leadership position

in our country, from Prime Minister to Premier, none has ever been able to demonstrate fully what they could do. They’ve only been treated a stop gap for the next male leader. For once, I would really like to see what a woman could do with her vision of our future. That’s why I’ve decided to support Christy Clark, and one of my main reasons is that she has started on a path that leads her government and our Province in a direction I would like to

see reach completion. As a daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother, I’ve seen how we’ve gotten to where we are now and I’m anxious for a change. So, let’s see what Christy Clark can do. Not only do I feel I can trust her, it’s also clear to me that she is genuinely, and truly focused on creating jobs for the younger members of our society, and that is something they can literally take to the bank.  Diane Walters

Protecting Canada’s environment dismantled protection of Canada’s lakes and rivers, and drastically reduced the budget of Parks Canada. With their majority, the Conservatives have rammed through Parliament two omnibus budget bills to avoid scrutiny of the elimination of most federal environmental assessments and the removal of protection for fish habitat, paving the road for resource develop-

ment with no oversight or consultation with aboriginal peoples and stakeholders. After seven years of stalling and polarizing the debate, serious measures to reduce carbon emissions and fight climate change have gone nowhere. Furthermore, the Conservatives have reduced our capacity to monitor polluters and the ability to make evidence based decisions

by cutting hundreds of scientists at Environment Canada. They have also cut Canada’s ozone monitoring and research program and are closing the worldrenowned facility for freshwater research and education, the Experimental Lakes Area. Why does Mr. Kent think this is all good news? Because the Conservative Party thinks protecting the environment hurts

the economy. They’re wrong. Resource development can be responsible and can still create jobs while protecting the environment. Proper environmental assessments not only ensure that development does not harm our planet, but they ensure that it has a social license to proceed. Without the proper approvals, protests and legal challenges will

Preventing the tragegy of death due to heart disease

There are 7,000 people throughout the province who have an inherited risk of fainting or dying suddenly from an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) – often this is only discovered through an event like fainting. However, research indicates that this is just the tip of the iceberg – for every

person identified with inherited arrhythmia, four or more family members may unknowingly be at risk. The condition can be managed with simple medical intervention, but when left unmonitored, it puts lives in danger. As the recently appointed Sauder Family and Heart and Stroke

Foundation Chair in Cardiology, we are assembling a team of experts to build a network of clinics to discover those British Columbians at risk, and provide them with protection. Despite all of our advances in prevention and treatment of heart disease, several thousand people in British

Superior-minded humans It seems to be but a matter of waiting for wild, stray cougars to threaten or attack human inhabitants before the latter act – which is typically to kill the wild cats. Of course the very inconvenienced humans in Walnut Grove may bother themselves with making it a solid habit to dose the cougars with as much potent tranquilizer necessary to encase and relocate them all, alive and well. But it appears that humanity’s supe-

rior-minded nature allows its collective conscience to simply “cull” such cougars for reacting in their natural, predatory manner. How can humanity justify snuffing out wild animals that stray into human-occupied communities when humans were the ones who came along and procured the animals from their formerly wild territory to make way for our own homes and infrastructure?

Team FIT gets families moving In its sixth year, running team is growing rapidly

Barry Stewart Hope Standard

Gilbert Deschenes

Kevin Chisholm and Fred Phoenix lead the way down 7th Avenue during last Sunday’s Team FIT learn-to-run practice.

the Learn to Run program. Add neighbours Erin, Scott and Jaxson Wilkins and well over half the population on Ferry Landing Place is walking or running at least three times a week. With the goal of having the team ready for April 21, the program begins in earnest 13 weeks prior. Some members need a lot of adjustment time, while others have already been maintaining an active lifestyle and just need to maintain or add to it. In past years, Johnson says, they had three groups: Learn to Walk 10K, Learn to Run 10K and the Run 10K Faster groups. “But some people just want to run

steadily — just for the love of running,” says Johnson. For this type of member, which includes Johnson herself, Team FIT has formed a “Run Steady” group this year. “The Run Faster group has interval training,” says Jacob. “You run fast for two minutes, then slow for one.” By Week 11 of the program, the runners will be running continuously for up to 75 minutes on their Sunday group sessions and the walkers will be walking continuously for 90 minutes. That’s a great improvement over the half-hour maximum of the first week. Members in all the groups are expected to practice on their own or

with fellow members at least twice a week — in addition to the Sunday team practices, which start and finish at the C.E. Barry gym. Why would anyone put themselves through all that work? For one, the team effort is a motivator and the gradual build-up makes the transition to fitness less painful. The team also has support built into the program, with lead runners doubling back to keep the group close together. They also have developed a Facebook group, where members can make plans to link up with members for a practice session — or  make encouraging comments to team members, says Miranda.

And then there’s the fun component. Crazy fun. At about 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 3, you may see one hundred of the goofiest-looking people to ever walk or run on the streets of Hope.  Most likely, they will be members of Team FIT. They’ll be competing for prizes for the best costume, which will be awarded at the potluck dinner, after the 5K event. Prizes will be awarded for best super-hero costume, craziest hairdo, most colourful, and best beachwear outfit. “Some people try to mix all the parts together,” adds Hollmann, grinning at the memories of past years’ outfits.

“Forty-three families moving,” would normally be disastrous news for the town of Hope. No worries here, though: these families are moving toward a goal of being able to run or walk 10 kilometres, so they can take part in the annual Sun Run in Vancouver on April 21. This is the sixth year for the Hope-based team, which has been organized by C.E. Barry staff members Pauline Johnson, Kim Hollmann and Jacob Cowan. Cowan’s wife Miranda is also part of the leadership group. In the past, the team has been identified by the school, with students getting their parents and siblings to join them in their goal. Johnson says that presented a problem when the students moved on to the high school and still wanted to be part of the team — or when community members with no ties to the school wanted to join. Change the title ... and the problem is fixed. “The name is now Team FIT, which stands for Families in Training,” says Johnson, who works as the Native education coordinator for the school.  The group is partnered with the SportMedBC Aboriginal Run/Walk program, which has approximately 1,800 to 2,000 participants each year. Participants do not need to have First Nations lineage, though. Getting people moving is the key. Locally, the group has shown steady growth, with 52 members in 2011, 85 in 2012 — and now 103 this year. Of these, 23 are School District 78 employees. Age range is from four years to 65-plus. “Usually, one adult in a family joins because their kid is bugging them,” says Hollmann. “Then, after a few years, they’re all in.” Hollmann should know. She joined in 2009 and she and her husband Peter and their four sons, her sister Marlo and her mom CaroleAnn McKay all took part in the Sun Run last year. The last holdout was Grampa Don, who was already getting into the walking habit on his own — but now has joined the group and has jumped into
