They pleaded. They heckled. They tried to negotiate. They yelled at, and even booed the official who hosted Fraser Health’s information meeting Tuesday night on the prospect of continuous chlorination of Chilliwack’s pristine water. A crowd of more than 400 filled the Chilliwack Alliance Church to ask questions, and hear what FHA’s Chief Medical Health officer Dr. Paul Van Buynder had to say. Despite two and half hours of heated exchange, with all speakers saying that they don’t want chlorination, there was no evident shift in the official position that chlorination is the best option for Chilliwack. Dr. Van Buynder acknowledged that the quality of Chilliwack’s

award-winning drinking water, and the efforts by staff to maintain the 450 kilometres of the water distribution system serving a growing population of more than 80,000. “You have a really good water source, there’s just no guarantee you can protect the system against incursions,” he said. Dr. Van Buynder’s bottom line was that the risk to Chilliwack population of drinking untreated water superseded any risks of adding the secondary disinfectant, chlorine. With a system the size and complexity of Chilliwack, there could be an estimated 70 to 100 breaks, or “incursions” in the water system in a given year, caused by anything from illegal connections to a break in a pipe. Chilliwack’s three incidents of “minimal” E.coli detection, in 2009,

The chlorine will take about 12 hours to reach the western most edge of Chilliwack. “Once the chlorine is present, residents are advised to run the water in their pipes to flush the chlorinated water through the system.” City and Fraser Health officials are resampling to confirm results, which should be in by Thursday, February 28. A Boil Water Advisory is going out, but if the tests come back clear it will be rescinded immediately, said officials.

Special education report reveals funding challenges Alina Konevski The Progress

The Chilliwack school district is stretching resources and doing its best to ensure children with special needs receive the support they require, says a report released Tuesday. But there is no clear solution for raising the necessary funds to improve services. Independent consultant Dr. David Carter presented the final results of his review of special education in the district at Tuesday night’s school board meeting. The report has been nine months in the making. Said parent Don Davis: “It’s about time.” More than 30 parents and school staff came out to hear

the results of the review, based on Carter’s visit to all but one district school, 82 parent interviews, and 291 parent surveys. Just over nine per cent of Chilliwack’s students, 1,223 in total, are listed as having a disabilities that ranging from physical challenges, to intellectual and mental, to behavioural. The provincial average is 10 per cent. Of all categories, Carter found that autistic students present the biggest challenge, and that people are “unhappy more often around autism than any other category.” Local education assistant Kathi Friesen told the board that staff training related to autism is lacking. “It’s frustrating, espe-

This district operates under very tight budget constrains (as do all) and is making careful and thoughtful use of the resources at its disposal ~ Report

cially around autism, where a classroom teacher has had no education around autism,” she says. “I’m very concerned about the people we are hiring as EAs. I’m one of them...I was not trained in anything specific to the job.” This is especially important as EAs are increasingly doing the brunt of the work

teaching special needs students, she says. Overall, Friesen was “thrilled” with Carter’s report and recommendations, and believes that he took people’s concerns seriously. The district has about half the provincial average of students categorized as having serious mental illness or

requiring intense behaviour intervention (category ‘H’) – a figure that has been declining. Although the district follows related Ministry of Education procedures closely, Carter noted that it may not have claimed all possible ‘H’ students, which would generate “discreet funding.” Some parents feel that category H students draw services away from others, writes Carter in the report, and others feel that the funding that their child generated should be spent on their child alone. This, Carter explains, is a common misconception. One way to look at it is that children receiving less now, may receive above and beyond in the future if their illness progresses and they require more support.

The Chilliwack district spends almost 42 per cent more on special education than it receives from the province, which Carter says is “not unusual,” and in fact represents “the lower end of the ballpark” among comparative school districts. Any additional funding must come from somewhere else, Carter said. Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president Clint Johnston called the funding issue the “elephant in the room” at the meeting. Noble phrases, such as “do more with less,” should not apply to special needs children, he argued. They deserve full funding for the services they need. Continued: EDUCATION/ p5

No one has ever attempted such a large-scale digitization project, spanning so many generations. The first phase is an effort to digitize between 90 and 100 years of the Progress, starting from its launch 1891. “Almost 100 years is pretty significant,” she said. The Progress has the honour of being the oldest newspaper published continuously under the same name in Canada.

Police issue warning after runner grabbed Chilliwack RCMP are warning people to be aware of their surroundings after a suspicious man grabbed a runner’s shoulder Saturday on the Teapot Hill trail. RCMP searched for the man where the two women were running, but there was no one fitting the description in the area.

The man grabbed the woman’s shoulder from behind, according to the report, but she and her fellow runner were able to get away and call police. “This is a really popular place for people to hike and run,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. Police are calling the inci-

dent “isolated” but are asking everyone to be “aware and alert” while hiking or running in the area. The man was in his 20s, described as scruffy and wearing dark clothing. “If you walk or run with music, ensure the music is not so loud that you are not able to hear what is happening around

you. “Also ensure someone knows where you are and when you are expected back.” Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604 792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS). Email: UFVRD_MEDIA@ rcmp-grc.gc.ca

It’s used every day by people from around the world, looking for obits, articles and information.” The plan is to eventually get the whole project online and searchable. Digitization will be conducted by Commonwealth Imaging of Alberta, and a copy will be housed at the archives. Access will be greatly improved, once everything is scanned and converted to PDF format, as well as preserving the hard-copy newspapers and microfilm for posterity. “Everyone is going to get so much out of it.”

Parents welcome special ed report Report from page 3 If no new funding is entering the district, as the proposed provincial education budget freeze suggests, then district staff are forced to compete for the same shrinking money pool, he said. “What it essentially does, is that, as a teacher, I can choose to advocate for my students, for my needy learners, or I can choose to advocate for myself. That’s not a choice I want to make. I feel I should be able to ask for a fair raise from my union...and at the same time, I should be able to advocate for more money for special education because I

know it’s such a need.” Among his many recommendations, Carter strongly believes the district should hire additional speech aids, and a full-time psychologist, which would improve services and reduce wait times for assessments. The psychologists “pay for themselves,” Carter said, because they can identify and transfer students to categories that provide additional funding. He also recommends setting up a special education review working committee to consider the recommendations of the report. But several parents at the school board meeting on Tuesday felt that a par-

ent should be included on the committee. Carter concludes the report: “Chilliwack is a district offering special education services that overall are equal to those seen in most B.C. school districts. This district operates under very tight budget constrains (as do all) and is making careful

and thoughtful use of the resources at its disposal.” The “frustration among staff and parents” is due solely to a situation in which “complex children are included in modern classrooms and resources are very, very tight,” and not to staff or district efforts.

The board toyed with the idea of having an implementation plan set by the end of May, but recognized that realistically, it may not be possible until the beginning of the next school year. The entire report is available through the Chilliwack school district website. akonevski@theprogress.com

Starting tonight, residents can drop-in for a free “Mini Med School” throughout March as local family physicians give back to the community. Now in its fifth year, the residency project is becoming an institution in Chilliwack, and last year received 60–80 people per session. This time the series includes four courses, two hours each, and is held at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. It kicks off with a seminar on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention on Wed., Feb. 27, 7–9 p.m. Following that, Chilliwackians are invited to attend the Why Don’t Kids Come with Manuals? seminar on March 13, 7–9 p.m., the Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures seminar on March 20, 2–4 p.m., and the Wilderness First Aid for the Weekend Warrior seminar on March 27, 7–9 p.m. Family physician Dr. Chantal Chris was part of the original Mini Med School in 2008, when she was a first-year resident at Chilliwack General Hospital seeking a way to increase people’s understanding about their own health. “Most people in the North American population, about 50 per cent, are not health literate. They’re health illiterate. This is a way to improve health literacy in Chilliwack, and hopefully from that, improve everybody’s health,” she says. The series now forms an integral part of the residency program at the hospital.

Thursday, February 28, 2013 The Chilliwack Progress

The Chilliwack Progress is published by Black Press Group Ltd., every Tuesday and Thursday at 45860 Spadina Ave., Chilliwack. The Progress is a member of the Canadian Circulation’s Audit Board, Canadian Community Newspaper Association, British Columbia and Yukon Community Newspaper Association and B.C. Press Council.

Risk too great for FHA There were few converts coming out of the Alliance Church following Tuesday night’s information meeting on the planned chlorination of Chilliwack’s drinking water. The Fraser Health Authority, through Dr. Paul Van Buynder, made a simple case for secondary disinfection: The public health risk of E.coli contamination outweighs any perceived threat, or inconvenience caused by chlorination. The audience reaction was just as blunt: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. At least that was the polite response. The more jaded brought up everything from a tenuous link to cancer, to the intrusion of a nanny state into the everyday lives of Chilliwack citizenry. The anger and distrust in the audience was palpable. But so too was the suspicion that Fraser Health’s agenda was anything but the welfare of the people it is mandated to protect. Their anger is understandable; the FHA’s bedside manner to date has hardly been inspiring. Too be fair, however, Fraser Health is simply playing the odds. The infrastructure needed to deliver Chilliwack’s pristine water from

its source to the tap is vulnerable, Dr. Van Buynder argues, perhaps not today, maybe not tomorrow, but eventually. And the bigger it gets, the more vulnerable it becomes. When it is compromised, the best-case scenario puts detection of an E.coli outbreak at four days – nine days at the worst. If the E.coli strain is particularly virulent, the consequences for the young and the elderly would be grave: severe diarrhea, kidney failure, death. For Dr. Van Buynder, that’s a chance no public health official can take. It may be an unpopular decision, he’ll argue, but issues of public health are not decided by the number of “likes” they get on a Facebook page. If the City of Chilliwack wants to keep chlorine out of its water it will have to guarantee its complex network of pipelines, reservoirs and cross-connections will never fail. That’s a tall order, even for a city whose pride in its water quality is reflected in the rigorous testing and maintenance already under way. But anything less won’t satisfy Fraser Health. The odds are against it. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

B.C. V IEWS

David Suzuki: The Don Cherry of TV science VICTORIA – He has a white beard and a bully pulpit on CBC television, but he doesn’t use it to promote hockey fighting. Instead he sucker punches the oil and gas industry at every opportunity, with increasingly flagrant disregard for the rules of science. Public broadcasting referees keep their whistles in their pockets, wary of offending a legend. He’s David Suzuki, and he has evolved from geneticist to TV celebrity to his current role as the Don Cherry of Canadian science, an angry curmudgeon lashing out at his enemies. Earlier I wrote about Suzuki’s hit piece on the Alberta oil sands, featuring selective pollution studies and a celebrity turn by movie director James Cameron, who toured the alleged carbon crime scene in his personal jet helicopter. Suzuki’s latest Scud missile of misinformation was launched Feb.

7 on The Nature of Things. It’s called Shattered Ground, and it borrows heavily from earlier shock docs that target hydraulic fracturing for shale oil and gas. While clearly aimed at the surging shale gas industry in B.C., this hour-long program offers little about B.C.’s long hisTom tory of gas develFLETCHER opment. Suzuki’s voice-over refers briefly to B.C.’s Oil and Gas Commission, insinuating it was set up as a pet regulator protecting the industry from stricter oversight. Mostly the show focuses on places like Dish, Texas and Dimock, Pennsylvania. The Texas segment talks about traces of neurotoxins in residents’ blood samples, blaming

this on gas drilling and “fracking,” the new swear word of professional environmentalists. The evidence shows some people have these traces in their blood, but others don’t, which suggests that more likely sources are cigarettes or exposure to disinfectants. Pennsylvania and Colorado are key stops for the anti-fracking crowd. For centuries there have been places known for methane dissolved in groundwater, typically from shallow coal seams. This is where you can find a rustic fellow to shake a jug of well water and touch his Bic lighter to it, producing a brief blue flame. The standard sequence moves to a sink and faucet, where a more impressive methane fireball is generated. Suzuki’s voice-over notes that this is the scene that really gets media attention. There’s no evi-

dence that drilling caused it, but hey, it’s TV. Science, meet Hillbilly Handfishin’. Protest sequences take up much of the program. Moms rally against a gas well near a school in Erie, Pennsylvania, forcing evil Canadian corporation Encana to back off. An elderly Quebec woman sobs on camera, convinced that a nearby gas well will trigger a relapse of her cancer. One bit of local content is a segment on fracking-induced earthquakes, presented with sombre alarm by Ben Parfitt, go-to researcher for the anti-industry left in B.C. These are detectable by sensitive instruments, as is the case with some mining and other industrial activities, but according to the Oil and Gas Commission, they don’t do any actual harm. It should be noted that Suzuki doesn’t do much beyond reading a script on these shows. He has

people to load up the propaganda weaponry, just as his ghostwriter in Toronto cranks out the relatively innocuous weekly columns that run in some Black Press publications. In fairness, most episodes of The Nature of Things are in the original spirit of the show. A recent program on an ancient Egyptian aquifer, voiced by Suzuki over National Geographic  video footage, would be appropriate for a high school classroom. The same cannot be said for this anti-fracking screed, which is plainly and recklessly calculated to twist public opinion against a crucial B.C. industry.

my wife. The nursing staff in this department, are second to none. The level of care my wife received was the best anyone could have ever hoped for. She was made to feel comfortable and every effort was made in her care. They have extremely advanced skills and the bedside manner they displayed left us feeling a great need to show the nurses and doctors at Chilliwack General recognition. They were compassionate and caring and diligent in doing their jobs. We got to know them on a small level and I can’t say enough good things about these people who helped my wife and I through this terrible affliction. All of these things combined gave us hope that we could make it through this tough time and allowed my wife to see some

Ammo commonly available In response to your article, “Action wanted on illegal dumping,” published February 26. Although your stor y focused mainly on the garbage issue, your front page photo and assertion that people were discharging fully automatic AK-47 assault rifles was misleading. Not all firearm enthusiasts are irresponsible. Although leaving spent or live shot gun hulls or rifle casings is inexcusable, find-

ing 7.62x39 casings doesn’t prove anyone was discharging a prohibited AK-47. This 7.62x39 ammunition is commonly available for use in the SKS rifle, a nonrestricted, non-prohibited firearm. Let’s keep the story relevant and real. Hyperbole and fear-mongering have no place here. Publishing inflammatory and misleading article segments based on speculation does nothing to help the cause.

light at the end of the tunnel. When I asked the nurses what is behind this staff performing so much better than other hospitals, I received a couple of answers. The first being that they put the patient first and this really shows! The second, is that they work well together as a family. This also is very apparent in the unbelievably high level of care they provided. My message boils down to this: To the doctors and nurses of the Chilliwack General Hospital in the maternity department, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the things you did for us! You deserve recognition and commendation for how well you do your jobs and going above and beyond! Jayson Tracy

Dumping Re: Action wanted on illegal dumping on Chilliwack trails The same   dumping happening on Vedder Mountain is also occurring up the Chilliwack River.   We walk regularly on the trails in the valley and regularly see old vehicles, appliances (both used for target practice), thousands of gun shells and garbage, garbage, garbage! Volunteers do a noble job of trying to keep our river and trails clean, but some days it seems like a losing battle. I don’t know what the solution is.

Review called for in Elders group decision I must clarify the statement by Doug Kelly (Chilliwack Progress, Feb. 19) that the CCEC board’s decision to dissolve the Elders Group was “cold hard economics” by offer the following. Elders have been without the annual allotment of $4,000 and financial contribution for the Cultural Trip many times over the years. It did not deter the Elders. They maintained their commitment and loyalty; addressed the many requests and met weekly at their own expense. I agree that the decision was

probably very difficult however, effective communication is a wonderful tool in resolving misunderstandings or disagreements and that didn’t happen in this case. Two members of the board promised that once the review was completed and changes made to the terms of reference for the group, a report would be made to the Elders (Tentative date for that was December 2012). Communication with the board was done through the president of the Coqualeetza Elders Group in keeping with Board Elections

of the constitution. If the underlying problem is nepotism, then it would be advantageous to recall that there were always Elders visiting the CCEC office to be available to the manager of the day, which was great. Let us pray during this most sacred time of year, decision makers and voters put themselves in the Elders’ situation or think about what their deceased parents/grandparents would prefer. Set it right!

Hospital service earns praise My name is Jayson Tracy and I wish to write this letter to acknowledge the excellence of the nurses and doctors of the Chilliwack General Hospital in the maternity ward in particular. My wife has recently delivered our second child and suffered from a severe case of Hyperemesis Gravidarum. She was extremely sick for all of her pregnancy, and we were in several hospitals over the course of her pregnancy. We live in the Shuswap and it was necessary to come to Chilliwack in order to get the care she needed. Nowhere did we receive the level of care we came to know at the Chilliwack General Hospital in the maternity department. We had regular daily visits from more than one doctor who took every measure to care for

A new group in Chilliwack wants residents to have full control over their water ways. The first of its kind in Canada, the WaterWealth Project wants legislative change to enshrine the community’s voice in any project proposal involving the local rivers and lakes. The group is fighting to give local residents the right to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on “decisions that affect the wealth of their water,” as the mission statement indicates. This also involves respecting and upholding aboriginal rights. “Local residents are smart. They’re not to be patronized

protecting the distribution system, since they’re used at the source, and won’t protect against breaks in the system.

“We want to make it foolproof,” he said, and that means adding disinfectant, as a multi-barrier method. The tone of the crowd was hostile for the most

part, and the frustration of the speakers thinly veiled. At times the rude heckling showed a distinct lack of respect for the health official with the mandate to make

decisions under the B.C. Drinking Water Protection act to protect the health of Chilliwack residents. MLA John Les was the first one to the micro-

phone, arguing that chlorinating Chilliwack’s water would not be a “foolproof state of affairs,” and urged Fraser Health to continue working with city council to

come up with a “reasonable compromise.” Another speaker asked if the health official could “guarantee” that adding chlorine would be safe, even for

those will chlorine allergies. People brought up the implications of gas pipelines over the aquifer, air quality and incineration, and the recurrent belief that chlorine is poison. One audience member said they could tell by the doctor’s body language that his mind was made up. Others told him they were personally willing to take the risk of going without chlorine disinfection. Another read out definitions of bullying. One speaker asked why they couldn’t just test the water more often without adding the disinfectant, another wanted to know why the people couldn’t vote on the matter. One individual asked for the research showing that chlorination is safe for long-term consumption. The response from Dr. Van Buynder was that the message he was getting from city staff was that the hillside areas, which are currently being chlorinated in Chilliwack, have not shown evidence of chlorination by-products, which are known to cause health problems. The timeline for the start of chlorination is unclear. It could actually take a few years to complete the $1.5 million infrastructure upgrade that would allow city staff to continuously chlorinate the water, with continuous monitoring, he said. “No one is saying to chlorinate Chilliwack by next week,” said Van Buynder. In the end it was made clear the only way the chlorination order would not be going through is if city officials came up with an alternative plan that health officials approved, or if the decision was reviewed by the Provincial Health Officer and he ended up agreeing that there is no need for secondary disinfection. Both scenarios seem fairly unlikely. The doctor said after decades of dealing with drinking water protection from Australia to New Brunswick he couldn’t think of another way to make “it more than foolproof” without going to chlorination. “I can’t think of it, but I will wait to see what the engineers will come up with.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

Tackling the Green Fighter Challenge As Carolyn Putt filled out her application for the Kin’s Green Fighter Challenge, she paused at the space that asks about connections to cancer. She thought about her little niece, LileeJean Putt. Just two years old, Lilee-Jean spent more than a year battling an aggressive brain tumour, going through a gruelling gamut of surgeries and chemotherapy treatments. MRIs showed the tumour shrinking, and her family thought she might beat the steep odds. “We got used to hearing good news, but at her last MRI in January they found another tumour,” she said. “But they can’t operate or do chemo or radiation, and they said she’s not going to live much longer.” Carolyn Putt finished the application and sent it off with one final thought. “Whatever this challenge ends up being, it is nothing, absolutely nothing, compared to what my niece is going through.” A few weeks later Carolyn got word that she would be Chilliwack’s representative in the challenge, joining 12 other contestants in a 13-week journey to a healthier lifestyle. She’d also be helping raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Again, she thought about LileeJean. “You feel helpless thinking there’s nothing you can do to change her situation,” Carolyn said. “But raising money that goes towards research and treatment, all we can really do is support organizations that are trying to make a difference.” The Kin’s Green Fighter Challenge is staged by Kin’s Farm Market in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society, Black Press, Cruise Experts Travel, CITAHealth, Body Comp Imaging and Canadian Tire. Over 13 weeks, the contestants tackle a series of challenges. Some are simple. “The first one is to post a photo of myself to Facebook and try to get the most comments and likes,” Carolyn

she’d breeze through, but she was wrong. “They did a full body scan looking at composition and bone density, and my percentage of body fat put me in the obese category,” Carolyn said. “That was disturbing. And also, my bone density was the worst out of the 13 competitors.” So she’s got some goals. Turn some fat into muscle. Work on that bone density. And raise $1,000 (hopefully more) for the Canadian Cancer Society. Weekly prizes are up for grabs, and the grand prize is a cruise for two to a sunny destination. But for Carolyn, the real prize will be knowing she did something to help her niece. Get more information online at kinsgreenfighters.com

Attorney General Shirley Bond released a report and tabled legislation Tuesday that promises to take another look at a regional police forces in urban areas. The report refers to former judge and attorney general Wally Oppal’s findings in the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry that pointed to fragmented policing and poor coordination between different Metro Vancouver police forces. It is the second of two “white papers” commis-

sioned by the B.C. government in an effort to make the justice system more responsive to citizens. “I think what we’ve recognized is that for far too long there has been talk about regionalization of policing and very little homework, very little detail, very little analysis of the pros and cons of that model,” Bond told reporters Tuesday. “What I’ve decided to do is to have the conversation that probably should have taken place long ago. “From my perspective we need to look at whether more integration is the answer, or

adjourn March 14 to make way for the May 14 provincial election. She said she is prepared to campaign on what she calls an “aggressive” justice reform agenda. Bond said public opinion is split on the merits of individual police forces, and some municipal politicians are adamant they don’t want to give up their local police force. A domestic violence unit for Greater Victoria police forces was established but has since had its staffing reduced. “We hear anecdotal information about regional policing all the time,” Bond said. “No one has actually investigated the costs, the benefits.”

whether indeed it is time to contemplate a regional police force. I will not do that unilaterally. There are very strongly held views. But we need to have a meaningful discussion about that, and the white paper and the policing plan commits to having that kind of dialogue.” The latest white paper calls on the government to develop funding models that would share the cost of regional police services, whether they are dedicated units for gang violence or domestic violence, or fully amalgamated policing. Bond isn’t sure if the Justice Reform and Transparency Act will be passed in the current legislature session, which is expected to

CSS Collects Artworks from Alumni, like this one by Chris Woods, can be viewed in the old art room at CSS on Saturday, March 2.

Spotlight on CSS alumni artists this weekend Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

A special catalogue of artwork from Chilliwack senior secondary alumni is going on display this weekend just in time for the Hello, Goodbye Mass Reunion. It’s the first time this body of artwork has been shown together since 2001 when it was part of an exhibition at City Hall, said Fred Granzow, a retired CSS teacher of photography and graphic design. “It was something that needed to be done.” CSS Collects Artworks from Alumni is both the name of the high-quality printed record of the images, and a special one-day exhibition of the artwork in the old Chilliwack senior secondary art room on March 2. “The idea is to showcase the artworks properly now,” said Granzow. “It’s more than just this weekend’s

high school reunion. It’s to solidify what was, for posterity and history.” The retired teacher started at CSS in the turbulent mid-70s and the art department was bustling and very vibrant. For many of the talented alumni who would go on to make their living with their art, Chilliwack was their crucible while attending high school. “I know a lot of these people still; their joys, their tragedies. It’s not something off in the distance. It’s right here.”

The multi-media collection includes the varied work of at least 15 former CSS students, including Chris Woods, Tim McAlpine, and Deborah Turney-Zagwyn. There are also pieces by Gord Siemens, Fred Buchwitz, Ron Huebner, Jim Weins, Willie Waring, Ted Bergen, Heather Cameron, Dale Switzer, Robin Konstabaris, Steve Wimbush, and Linda Siemens. Most were part of an art program at the school, dating back to the 70s, that showcased the work of successful CSS grads who were making their living as professional artists. “It was Jerry Kaufman who got this program started,” he said. The idea was to forge a connection between the working art world and student artists. “People need to know that Chilliwack senior was a fine arts school without ever having been officially designated one,” Granzow

said. Hanging the art in the school was a burst of inspiration for students who would walk by it every day. They petitioned student councils of the day for funding, and purchased alumni art whenever they could. CSS Art department chair Marilyn Connelly has been an “incredible” source of support since Granzow approached her with the idea. She has been protectively guarding the cache of historic art

from theft, damage or vandalism, he said. For 2013 they also produced a glossy, printed booklet of the diverse art pieces, which will eventually be proudly displayed in the new school building. The booklet was put together in InDesign with the help of CSS Fine Arts students Tamara Otermat and Kelli Whitehead, Granzow said. “I think this is marvelous,” he added. “Twenty years ago we couldn’t have imagined producing a book this professional. It was done in a week.” Many of the alumni, teachers and staff who will be touring the building on Saturday will be dropping by the old art facility. “Hopefully they will get to see this very special exhibition.” CSS Collects Artworks from Alumni, can be viewed in the old art room at CSS on Saturday, March 2.

When calculating what you can afford in a house, don’t just look at the list price. Today’s mortgage options are increasing the possibilities for home buyers, so you should also take a close look at what it will cost you to live in the house. Your monthly housing cost is the second figure to consider, and that cost is very much determined by current interest rates. Today’s real estate market is very price-driven. Homes which are in the best condition and have the most attractive price tags are the ones that sell the fastest. Diverse financing options and competition among lenders are giving many buyers the opportunity to buy a more expensive house or condo than they thought they could afford - and sooner. There are many creative ways to get into a home with a relatively small amount of money. Ask you Realtor to help you look at today’s numbers - you may be pleasantly surprised. Buyers should get pre-approved for a mortgage by a lender before beginning to look for a house. If you are turned down for a loan by one lender, don’t give up - it may be necessary to try a different source. Preapproval saves you time by allowing you to concentrate on homes in your price range. (Pre-approval from a lender is different from pre-qualification, which does not obligate the lender to make a loan. Pre-qualification only indicates that the potential borrower appears to be qualified for a loan, based on the information the lender has been given.)

I’m happy to say that Chilliwack is my home, and always has been. This is a city with spirit and heartbeat! I love living here, so it’s no wonder to me that others want to make it their home too. While our city keeps growing and the landscape keeps changing, people’s basic needs tend to stay the same... especially when it comes to buying and protecting their most important asset -their homes. Finding the right Realtor® to help you buy or sell your home, means making a GOOD CHOICE. My professional experience has always centred around helping people from all walks of life, which made a career in real estate a perfect fit for me. Working hard and doing a great job as your Realtor® is always my goal...it’s what I believe in. You can trust that with me on your side, you’ll always get the same top-notch service that I would expect myself. Ready to talk real estate? Call me anytime... it’s where your GOOD CHOICE gets GREAT RESULTS!

Perhaps no single decision in a real estate purchase has more variables than “how much money should I put down”? All of the conventional wisdom centers around either putting down as much as you can or as little as the lender allows. If you have a large down payment, you get some leverage with the lender; a good equity position and perhaps a preferred mortgage deal. You will also have lower mortgage payments. When you decide to buy a home, you may feel resistance to doing some of the things that are necessary to turn your dream into a reality. An important part of a professional Realtor’s job is to help you overcome such resistance. When you locate the property you want to buy, you will have to handle many details within a very short period of time. There is a lot of paper-work, in addition to the negotiations with the sellers. You may also experience a wide range of emotions at each step of the way, everything from mild jitters to profound buyers’ remorse. Just take a deep breath and trust your Realtor. It also helps to remember that everyone who has purchased a home has experienced these same feelings - “‘It’s too much money’ or ‘the local market will collapse completely the day after we close.’” Fortunately, almost none of these fears ever come true. A professional Realtor is trained to take you through the home-buying jitters.

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

The playoff chase

Should the Chiefs finish second, their most likely opponent is Prince George. But don’t count out Langley just yet, writes Jacob Bestebroer

Twins Colton (left) and Merick Sampson, 11, are on the Team USA U12 baseball team. They will be going to the Dominican Republic in August to play in the Latin American Baseball Classic. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Baseball taking twins to Dominican Chilliwack twins Colton and Merick Sampson are travelling to the Dominican Republic in mid-August to participate in the Latin American Baseball Classic. The LABC takes place each year in Santo Domingo, a baseball hotbed that has produced a looooooong list of major leaguers. That list includes current Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista, Boston Red Sox bopper David Ortiz and future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols. In addition to the host Dominicans and the United States, the LABC includes teams from Venezuela, Panama, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Aruba, Brazil and the Virgin Islands. The tournament is held at complexes run by the New

York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago White Sox, Minnesota Twins and Arizona Diamondbacks. Colton and Merick will have the opportunity to meet and work with players and coaches in the Diamondbacks organization. The twins competed against more than 1,000 players to earn a spot on the team. Team USA is taking 13 players for the 12-and-under squad. The local lads, who hold dual citizenship, will be pitching and playing behind the plate as catchers. “The team is carrying two catchers as it is very hot and they play double headers every day,” said their dad, Jeff Sampson, whose Michigan birth cer-

tificate allows them to play for the US. Team USA will be coached by former major leaguer Jim Parque. The 37-year-old logged 103 career games as a pitcher with the Chicago White Sox and Tampa Bay Rays. He went 13-6 with the White Sox in 2000, striking out 111 in 187 innings with a 4.28 earned-run average. The boys have been involved with the Chilliwack Minor Baseball Association since they were four years old, and quit playing hockey two years ago to concentrate on baseball year round. The twins joined their older brother Caelen, crossing the border to Bellingham two or three times a week for training sessions. They also started training at the

Chilliwack-based Batters Box Academy, guided by University of British Columbia pitching coach Shawn Corness. The trip to the Dominican Republic will be expensive, with the financial burden bourne mostly by the players. The Sampson family is hoping the community might help out. They are also looking for donations of kids clothes, small toys and baseball gear to give out while they are in the impoverished country. Anyone who wishes to donate money or other items can contact Jeff Sampson by phone at 604799-2457 or email at jeffsampson19@hotmail.com. Lara Sampson can be contacted by phone at 604799-2458 or email at lsampson7@hotmail.com.

The Chilliwack Chiefs try to right the ship with a pair of weekend games, starting Friday night in Langley. The Chiefs (30-20-1-1) lost 5-1 in Langley (22-23-1-5) last Friday and dropped six of nine overall in February. Chilliwack comes home Saturday night to host the worst team in the BCHL, the Cowichan Valley Capitals. The Caps sport a record of 13-31-1-6, good for 33 points. That’s 11 points worse than the Vernon Vipers (17-25-1-9).

Become a homeshare for someone living with a disability, providing them with living space and support in daily life skills.

We still don’t know where the Chilliwack Chiefs will finish in the BCHL’s Mainland division. The only thing that became fact last weekend was the Surrey Eagles finishing in first place. It’s still unlikely the Chiefs will finish anywhere but second. The Chiefs have a six point lead on the third place Prince George Spruce Kings, and each team has five games left to play. If they finish tied in points, Chilliwack gets the tie breaker and would finish second. To clinch second place the Chiefs need a combination of points earned plus Prince George points not earned to equal two over the remaining games. Should the Chiefs finish second, their most likely first round opponent is Prince George. But don’t count out the fourth place Langley Rivermen just yet. They are six points back of Prince George with a game in hand and they are in Prince George for two games this weekend. If Langley can win both of those games in regulation, they would have a good chance at moving up to third place and facing Chilliwack in the first round. A couple random and unrelated thoughts. Two weeks ago I dedicated an entire column to the Chiefs leading the league in power play opportunities and times shorthanded. In Saturday’s 5-3 loss to Prince George there were just two penalties called in the entire game with each team getting one power play.

I cannot remember a Chiefs game with just four minutes in penalties. It may have happened but I doubt it. The Chiefs are now third in power play opportunities with 240 but still lead the league by a wide margin in times shorthanded with 289. Chiefs forward Luke Esposito is second in the league in points (70) and ranks first in assists (53) and power play assists (20). You’d think with those numbers he would have been the first star in a number of games. Nope. He has been first star just once. I think there are two reasons for this. One, goal scorers and goalies get all the glory and two, he’s just very consistent. He’s had one four point game and three three point games. He’s had two points in 17 games. Two point games usually won’t get you selected first star. He’s only been held off the scoresheet in nine games. Mitch Gillam leads the team with nine first star selections. Spencer Graboski, Trevor Hills, Ryan Donohoe and Phil Zielonka all have three. I only counted Zielonka’s with the Chiefs, he had more with Coquitlam prior to coming to Chilliwack on January 10. The Chiefs are in Langley Friday night before hosting the Cowichan Valley Capitals Saturday. Get Chiefs info at chilliwackchiefs.net. jb@chilliwackchiefs.net

Russian skater finds unlikely home in Chilliwack Too often, we take for granted what we have in Canada, rarely stopping to think about the freedoms we enjoy. Today, part two of a two-part story about a man who takes nothing for granted, a man who left his home and family behind, traveling thousands of miles to forge a new life in Canada.

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

Denis Kondrashin rolled over on his left side, then to his right. He kicked at the blankets, then flopped onto his back and stared at the ceiling. Sleep wasn’t coming easily tonight. Sleep hadn’t come easily for months. It’s not that he wasn’t tired. The skating left him suitably exhausted by bedtime. But his mind was like a shopping mall at Christmas, thoughts flying left and right, acting like a shot of double espresso. How had things gotten so screwed up? Denis flashed back

to the night he arrived in Montreal, filled with optimism. He recalled the car ride to the home of the ice-dancing family that had brought him to Canada, gawking wideeyed at the buildings and the people and the signs he couldn’t read. The Canadian family lived in a Russian neighborhood, which had sounded great at first — a comfortable buffer against culture shock as he tried to get settled into this foreign land. In the end, it had proven a source of frustration. Within that bubble he hadn’t worried about speaking English or French. He communicated in his native tongue, ate familiar foods and felt closer to the homeland he left behind. But then, he’d left it behind for a reason hadn’t he? After a couple days, the bubble started reminding him why. He found the people there to be the same as the people in Moscow,

After his immigration odyssey came to a close, Russian skater Denis Kondrashin settled in Chilliwack and became a coach with the Cheam Skating Club. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

consumed by the same petty jealousies and living the same inside-thebox lives he found so intolerable. Worse, he found them unable or unwilling to acclimate to life in Canada. There was so much to see and do in this country, but they wanted no part of it. They wanted no part of the ‘weird’ Canadians either. Instead, they isolated themselves in their community, backstabbing the country and people who’d welcomed them with open arms. He couldn’t stand it. ‘Why come here if you can do this crap back home?’ he’d asked himself. Denis wanted to embrace the people and the culture. This was a grand adventure, and he didn’t want to be anywhere else. But securing immigrant status was proving very difficult and this was the source of his insomnia. The family that brought him to Canada promised to take care of things, but they soon found they’d bit off more than they could chew. After just one month, they severed the arrangement, and it looked like Denis was heading back to Russia. Then, another Montreal-based coach jumped in. Seeing his talent, the coach promised to find Denis a new ice-dancing partner. The coach took him out of the Russian community and moved him to the other side of the city. Armed only with a pocket English-French dictionary, Denis was left to communicate

almost exclusively through hand gestures. For two years, he didn’t know what to say and he didn’t know what people were saying. Denis had little choice but to trust people who offered to help, and he got many a free dinner. But in the end, their well-meaning words amounted to so many broken promises. ‘If they say they’ll help and they actually want to help me, why don’t they help me?’ he wondered. As he laid in bed, images of immigration forms floated behind closed eyelids. Denis was living on three month extensions that wouldn’t last forever. Eventually, Canada was going to tell him to get out. Deportation. One English word that he knew, and hated. Language was the huge obstacle here as well. Had his Canadian adventure started in Ontario or British Columbia, or anywhere but Quebec, a minimal grasp of English might have been sufficient. But applying in Quebec, French fluency was a must. Denis had already been rejected twice on those grounds. Je ne peux pas parler français! Skating was a distraction, to a point. But even on the ice, the language issue couldn’t be avoided. Ice-dancing required two people to move as one, to be fully in synch with each other. But to Denis, it seemed like ‘two blind people playing games.’

Communication was done through pointing, drawing pictures or watching video. He was frustrated, though he did his best to hide it. They were frustrated too, and they showed it. They were irritated with the Russian kid who wasn’t getting it, which only made things worse. He needed time and patience, and found both in short supply. Still, even in those darkest moments when he laid awake until the early morning hours wallowing in despair, he didn’t want to give up. He knew what waited for him if he went home. Canada at its worst was preferable to Russia at its best. l 2,239 miles away, Julie Rithaler was doing some thinking of her own. Her daughter, Natalie, was an exceptionally talented girl without a partner. She’d had great success skating with her brother, until he decided to get a job and get on with life. Natalie wasn’t ready to turn that page. Julie had been told that the best ice-dancers lived in Eastern Canada, so she and Natalie flew there in search of a new partner. Natalie and Denis skated for a week, and it seemed like a good fit. But Julie had a thought. Why base themselves in Montreal? Why not bring Denis to British Columbia? Denis was working with his third coach by then, two-and-a-half years into an adventure that looked to be at an

end. He had nothing to lose. Moving to the other side of the continent, to some little town named Chilliwack? After all he’d done to this point, why not? So he packed up his meager belongings, and west he went. Once again he was placing his trust in strangers, and once again he was expecting to be let down. But this felt different. This girl and her mother, they seemed serious. Denis felt something he hadn’t in a long time. Hope. Denis and Natalie skated at the BC Centre of Excellence in Burnaby under the watchful eye of Victor Kraatz. Yep, THAT Victor Kraatz. Ten-time Canadian ice-dancing champion (with ShaeLynn Bourne) and onetime world champion. In 2003, Kraatz and Bourne became the first North American ice-dancers to win at worlds. They beat a Russian pair to do so, besting Irina Lobacheva and Ilia Averbukh at the MCI Center in Washington, DC. Denis couldn’t have asked for a better coach. For two-and-a-half years he and Natalie practised and competed, perfecting the steps of an Argentine Tango. They won competitions in the United States, and qualified for the 2008 BMO Skate Canada Senior Challenge, where they placed 12th in a field of 13. They had reached the highest level of Canadian skating, but that competition was the beginning of the end. The relationship started to fray, helped along by a serious onice accident that hurt Natalie’s back and knee. She was staring down intense rehab, and then a return to a life that was slowly burning her out. Natalie was now ready to turn that page. Denis wasn’t ready to give up. After all the Rithalers had done for him, he was never going to be the one to call it quits. But Natalie was resolute. She was done, and therefore, so was he. The lasting legacy of their two years together was a pair of custom skates with golden blades, given to him by Julie.

l By this time, his immigration request had finally been accepted and Denis no longer feared being punted back to Russia. But without the financial support of the Rithalers, he had to get a job and earn a living. Denis had spent so much time being coached that he didn’t consider coaching until Julie mentioned it. For a year-and-a-half, he hung around the Cheam Skating Club as a volunteer, pitching in where needed. With the encouragement of some parents, he studied hard and passed all the tests to become a level-one coach. l It’s late Tuesday afternoon, and Denis is on the ice with a group of Can-Skate students. Wearing his golden blades, he glides over to the far boards and bangs his hands against the wood. The children gather around for brief instruction, and off they go. Denis follows and from 100 feet away his voice is heard. “Skate, skate, skate!” he shouts, before pausing to correct a six-yearold’s technique. For all that he went through as young skater, it’s odd to see Denis coach as he was coached. But years of reflection have led him to the belief that they had the right approach. He looks at a large segment of Canadian coaches and thinks they’re too nice. They don’t push their students enough. Everyone gets points for trying. He looks at the North Shore and Burnaby Winter Clubs and all the competitions they win and sees coaches who might not always be the nicest. But they get results. Students who aren’t interested in learning, he has little interest in teaching. If that sounds harsh, he’s not apologizing. Everything he now enjoys, the freedom to eat what he wants, do what he wants and go where he wants — all of it is because of skating. The sport opened doors that would have remained closed. If skating can do the same for one of his students, he’ll do whatever it takes to help.

advocate for residents having power to control their community’s water. Muxlow says that the community’s strong response to Fraser Health’s proposal to chlorinate drinking water demonstrates the importance of water to Chilliwack, but the group will not directly engage with this issue because it believes the community is already very active in demanding control over its drinking water. WaterWealth wants to protect wealth in the Fraser Valley, which Muxlow says reaches beyond what is in bank accounts. “It is about the quality of life we have here in the Valley, the access to fresh rivers and lakes that we can go swimming in, the places that we can go and engage with nature that are still clean, healthy, and productive,” Muxlow says.

Taking us on an emotional journey to where the mighty Fraser and Thompson Rivers meet in Lytton, British Columbia, the story dives below the surface of the community and examines the struggles of its survivors. Written by Kevin Loring, this moving yet very funny play lets us see into the lives and hearts of characters who experienced their childhoods in one of these horrible institutions. The play gives us a glimpse into their present struggles, the impact of past abuse, the burden of poverty and despair, and eventually, for some, a path of hope. Loringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is surprising in that it is not all doom and gloom, the play weaves in Starring Lorne alot of humour into the story and celebrates Cardinal, known as the survivors in a masterful piece of theatre the loveable Officer that is just darn funny.
