Chlorine stays on ‘until further notice’ Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

The emergency chlorination system, activated last week in the wake of a report of E.coli on the valley floor in Chillliwack, is going to stay in operation in definitely. Resampling tests of the water on Thursday came back clear, “with zero E.coli detected.” “Today’s clear test results do not mean the prior test was incorrect,” says Glen MacPherson, Chilliwack’s director of public works. “At this time we don’t know what caused the original test result to be positive, but we will continue investigating to determine a cause.” Once city officials were notified of a positive result, crews retested the water and activated the city’s standby chlorination system. They flushed the lines and asked Greendale residents to flush the chorine through their lines. “As a precautionary measure, Greendale residents were advised to boil their drinking water,” he said. Chlorine reached Greendale within a few hours, a community on the western edge of Chilliwack which is on the valley floor. Since the drinking water distribution system is interconnected, the entire system therefore had to be chlorinated. “We are reassured by the test results today, but we certainly look forward to finding out the results of the investigation,” said Mayor Gaetz. “This is the first time we have had to activate standby chlorination, but our staff was well prepared and responded immediately. We will work cooperatively with the Fraser Health Authority and ensure our drinking water is safe.” The Boil Water Advisory for Greendale was lifted February 28. Continued: WATER/ p5

Big turnout for Hello, Goodbye reunion Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

More than 100 millimetres of rain in Chilliwack couldn’t dampen the excitement of CSS alumni on their way to the mass reunion. The Hello, Goodbye event at Chilliwack secondary school drew a whopping 5,000 people over the weekend. All the socials and parties were sold-out and more than 4,500 former students, staff and teachers wandered down memory lane in the old CSS building on Saturday. “Everything went off without a hitch, and the

synergy was incredible,” said organizer Trevor McDonald. Lyle and Catherine Collie, CSS class of 1972 and 1973 respectively, were poring over the annuals and photos in the 1970s kiosk in the gym to find people they knew.

Anonymous comments spark hate crime investigation Support pours in for restaurant owners Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Chilliwack RCMP are consulting the hate crime unit after two separate Chilliwack restaurant owners received emails with racist overtones in the past week. “We are actively investigating the complaints,” said RCMP Const. Tammy Hollingsworth. The first time was on Feb. 28 after the owner of the Bay Leaf restaurant received a very disturbing email. The message was from someone who claimed he was “wellconnected” who warned the restaurant owner to “leave” Chilliwack because it didn’t need people from India or Surrey to “pollute” it. The message was sent from a hushmail.com account that said in

part: “We do not want your people in Chilliwack. Your business is never going to succeed here no matter the price, the advertising you invest in, nothing. Chilliwack is not a place for you.” There was a history of incidents, say police. “The restaurant owner indicated that he’d had eggs thrown at his house in the past, and animal bones left on his doorstep, but he had just passed it off as the work of kids. “He didn’t think anything of it until he received this email,” said the officer. RCMP have opened a file in the wake of the two incidents and are consulting the Hate Crime unit “for their expertise” in this area. Bayleaf owner Sumit Gulati, who goes by the nickname Lucky, told

The Progress he has received 400 calls and emails of support since the incident. “A lot of people have called to say they don’t like that this happened to me. They are saying, ‘We are with you’ and that is a good thing.” In the wake of the outpouring of support and media coverage, an anonymous letter writer emailed RCMP again to apologize, claiming “the idiotic and hateful” message he sent was because he was also a local restaurant owner who was trying to eliminate the competition. He or she claimed they were having “a very bad day,’ and had some mental health issues, but wondered what law had been broken. But Gulati said he’s now not so sure of the letter-writer’s sincerity. A second report was received RCMP on March 3 from the owner

of another Indian restaurant in Chilliwack, the Shandhar Hut, indicating that he’d received the exact same type of disturbing email. Again the community’s outpouring of support has been very heartening, as evidenced by the Facebook page message from the owners, sincerely thanking everyone who has shown their support. “We have had the privilege of raising our three children and running a successful business in this amazing community of Chilliwack and plan on continuing to do so,” the message from the Atti family said. “We just want to say: we could not have setup shop in a better community. We absolutely love the people of this city and are so honoured to feel so welcomed among the majority of the people we share this community with. Much love and respect to you all!” Cash Mob Chilliwack organizer

Scott McVetty said they are still trying to put together an impromptu Cash Mob night on Friday to support the local Chilliwack restaurants. Follow the updates on their Facebook page, Cashmob Chilliwack. “We don’t want the voice of one person like that representing us as a whole,” McVetty said. UFV president Mark Evered said his reaction, which was one of shock, was the same as everyone’s that he spoken to in the wake the intolerant emails. “I think it’s a good sign that we are shocked by something like this, which was so overt and blatant,” he said. This kind of hurtful, and unbridled racism is not “an attitude that characterizes Chilliwack,” despite the email-writer’s claims to the contrary. Continued: email/ p7

District still eyes two-week spring break Online survey seeks input until March 7 Alina Konevski The Progress

The Chilliwack school district has accepted that the students and staff will not see a two-week spring break next year, but is keeping the option on the table for the year after. The district is running an online survey again to gauge local opinion on the school calendar. The survey asks respondents whether they would be in favour of adding 10–15 minutes to school days to provide for a two-week break. The survey also solicits general comments on the current one-week break structure. In January and February, 2013,

the school district met with the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association and CUPE to discuss a two-week spring break. Although the stakeholders considered various options, including adding minutes to every day during the school year, they could not reach an agreement. The current survey is in line with the district’s promise to continue exploring the issue, in order to present a two-week break option in time for the 2014/15 calendar year. One challenge is that the 10 to15 extra minutes per day may not allow teachers to present an additional lesson, and therefore the strategy might not fully compensate for the time lost during an extended spring

break. The district conducted a similar survey last year. 78 per cent of respondents, nearly half of whom were parents, were in favour of a long break. That figure jumped to 95 per cent among teachers. The district had a two-week break in 2010/11 to save costs, but since then has not found a structure that worked for all stakeholders. One of the largest critics of the two-week break has been CUPE, whose school staff lost a week’s pay because of it during 2010/11 year. As of the 2013/14 school year, there will no longer be a standard school calendar in B. C. schools because of new legislation adopted in September of 2012. akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/WriteInBC

The release of the latest B. C. school rankings by the Fraser Institute on Monday are rekindling the debate on the value of standardized testing in elementary schools. According to the ranking, top-scoring Chilliwack schools are Timothy Christian (ranked 39th) and Mount Cheam Christian, both private. The latter also made the list of top 20 fastest-improving schools, moving to 44th from the last five years’ average of 68th. The lowest-scoring school was Strathcona, dropping to 758th from its five year average of 472nd. Chilliwack Central scored similarly to last year, at 674th. The school has the highest proportion of ESL students (30 per cent) and special needs students (12 per cent) in the district. The Fraser Institute’s annual report card ranks 853 public and private elementary schools in the province based on data from the Foundation Skills Assessment, a standardized test that most students write in Grade 4 and/or Grade 7. The ranking has received intense criticism in the province, propped up by the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation campaign against the FSA. “The problem we really have with the FSA, is that the data is taken by an outside body to assess schools against each other,” says Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president Clint Johnston. “It’s the use of the formalized data in the ranking, without taking into consideration the hundreds of thousands of other variables than can affect education, that is the problem.” A teacher working in a class-

room with a higher than average number of special needs students, explains Johnston, must split his time into ever smaller portions, irrespective of additional funding coming to the school. And any dramatic drops or rises in school rankings are evidence that the ranking system is invalid, because a school’s staff and teachers are unlikely to change their method of instruction equally dramatically from one year to the next. “Is (the FSA) really a good indicator of the level and the quality of education?” asks Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony. “Those tests certainly do not reflect the overall quality of education that children receive at schools. In some ways, I think they’re being used unfairly, in an unfair judgment.” The school district, however, does rely on the FSA for comparing the performance of the district to the rest of the province. “We view the FSA as a balanced assessment program, and we also recognize it is a snapshot in time, so it’s one indicator. But it does help us to see how our students are doing in relation to the province,” says school district superintendent Evelyn Novak. The district does not use the test to judge individual schools, she says. Indeed, there is little evidence that school districts use FSA performance to adjust funding allocation, such as adding resources to lower-scoring schools. The B.C. NDP is campaigning on the promise to amend the FSA to include more than just writing and math skills testing. The plan is to have random Continued: FSA/ p5

Threat at CSS draws police response Jennifer Feinberg The Progress RCMP were called to Chilliwack senior secondary shortly after noon on Thursday after a message found in the school contained a “veiled and non-specific

threat.” But police are not disclosing any details or content of the threat of violence. “The school wasn’t put in lockdown in place but kids were kept safe in their classrooms,” said RCMP Cpl. Tammy

Hollingsworth. “Police took precautions, with high visibility at the school.” CSS students were released more than two hours later, classroom by classroom, and the investigation is ongoing.

“A lockdown is only put in place when there’s an active shooter, or a threat of an active shooter,” the officer said. Earlier in the day, the students had been practising routine lockdown procedures, she said. jfeinberg@theprogress.com

Future of FSAs in doubt, says BCTF FSA from page 3 testing in the NDP’s first year in office, while developing the final FSA structure. The success of the BCTF campaign to have parents opt-out of the FSA has been variable. In Chilliwack, between two and 20 per cent of students in each school did not write the last FSA.

Provincially, 84 per cent of B.C. students wrote the FSA between 2009 and 2012. The Fraser Institute advocates for parents to use the rankings to determine which schools are best for their children, and for school districts to determine where the systemic strengths and weakness lie. “By pinpointing the subject

areas in which individual schools are improving or declining and how their academic performance compares to that of other B.C. schools over the past five years, our report helps educators prioritize learning challenges in their schools,” said the Fraser Institute’s Peter Cowley in a press release.

“The water in Chilliwack remains safe to drink,” Gaetz said. Fraser Heath has advised the city to

investigate the incident, and to leave the standby chlorination system in operation “until further notice,” according to the city release. For more details on

Liberal cabinet minister quits over ethnic memo VICTORIA – Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap has resigned from the B.C. cabinet pending the outcome of an investigation into government conduct on outreach to ethnic communities. Premier Christy Clark told the legislature Monday that Yap is stepping aside from his duties as advanced education and multicul-

turalism minister until an internal investigation is complete. B.C. Liberal MLAs held an extended caucus meeting Monday to deal with the fallout from a leaked memo describing use government resources to boost the party’s popularity with ethnic communities. Cabinet ministers held a hastily arranged meeting in Vancouver Sunday, and emerged united in support of Clark. One disputed point is a plan to

apologize in the legislature for the “head tax� on Chinese immigrants, imposed by Ottawa from 1885 to 1935. Such apologies are proposed in the strategy document as “quick wins� before the May 14 provincial election. Vancouver-Fraserview MLA Kash Heed objected to the move on the weekend, telling CKNW radio that such an apology would be “hollow.� In a terse statement issued Friday afternoon, Clark announced that she

has accepted the resignation of her long-time assistant, Kim Haakstad, who distributed the ethnic voter plan to party and government staff via their personal e-mail addresses. Haakstad, Clark’s deputy chief of staff, and “outreach� staff from the premier’s office are subject to an internal investigation ordered by Clark Thursday. John Dyble, head of the public service, is to examine whether government communications resources were redirected to

help deliver ethnic votes to the B.C. Liberal Party. A January 2012 draft strategy memo leaked to the NDP opposition discusses ways to improve the governing party’s popularity with immigrant communities, including recruiting new members and spokespeople to call and write to ethnic media outlets. Clark issued an apology for the document, read in the legislature Thursday by Deputy Premier Rich Coleman.

Chilliwack’s Spartan Swim Club sent seven swimmers to the BC AAA Championships in Victoria last weekend.

A record 750 athletes competed in the meet, and locals captured 11 medals. Jessie Gibson competed in the 15-year-old girls division. She earned silver medals in the 100 and 200 metre flies and 100m freestyle. Gibson added double bronze in the 200m freestyle and individual medley.

She was fourth in the 200m backstroke. Carson Olafson competed in the 15-year-old boys division, almost mirroring Gibson’s results. Olafson captured silver in the 100m fly and 200 and 400m freestyles. He scored three bronze medals in the 100m backstroke and freestyle and 1500m

freestyle. Olafson added a fourth place finish in the 200m fly. In the same division, Grayson Bukkos swam his way to seventh in the 200m fly and freestyle. For more information on the Spartans call 6048258-SWIM(7946) or check the club website at spartanswimclub. com

Falcons on fire as provincials loom

The Sardis senior boys basketball team is hitting provincials on a hot streak, winners of their last four games. The Falcons head into their first ever provincial tournament after rallying in the Fraser Valley playoffs. Sardis punched their provincial ticket with huge wins over Terry Fox (85-69 on Friday)

Bridal Showcase Bridal Showcase Bridal Showcase Wednesday,

and Enver Creek (7058 on Saturday). During their four game winning streak Sardis has received contributions from unexpected sources. Each game has seen five or six players hitting double digits, an interesting development for a team that has relied heavily on big guns Eric Rogers,

Hayden Lejeune and Cam Servatius. “Seniors Jordan Van Drimmlen, Jason Kroeker and Mike Gregory have brought their games to a new level,” said coach Kyle Graves. Lejeune earned a second team all-star award for his play during Valleys. Sardis heads into

provincials as the eighth seed in a 20 team field. The Falcons play Burnaby South in their opening game on Wednesday, March 13. Tip off is 8:30 a.m. at the Langley Events Center. A win puts them in the Thursday night quarterfinals. Get more tournament info online at bcboysbasketball. com.

The ‘Walk and Knock food bank drive’ is an event where UFV athletes walk the community on Halloween evening collecting food for

Her efforts to continually put others before herself and model this as a student-athlete has been an inspiration to all of us.” McCarthy becomes the second Cascade to earn the Canada West Sylvia Sweeney nomination.

Broader than the border

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

For those of us who live in communities close to the U.S., cross-border shopping has been, and always will be, an option. But what used to be a routine wave-through hop across the line to take advantage of a few lower price points – or a nice little change of scenery – has become almost an imperative in today’s sluggish economy. The fact is that cash-strapped Canadians are inevitably tempted by lower prices for consumer goods in the U.S., whether or not they factor in the increased hassles of a more security-concerned border and the possibility of line-ups – even with Nexus lanes. In their urge to save, they may not calculate the hidden costs of travel or taxation that may nullify the ‘bargain’ they get south of the border. U.S. merchants in Washington, who are, naturally, more than happy to welcome northern shoppers to ease their own economic woes, have actually seen the spike in Canadian business almost cancel out the drop in their own domestic trade. Canadian business owners cry foul, of course, but it would be wrong to demonize cross-border shopping in and of itself. Rather, the attention of Canada’s leaders must be focused on problems north of the border that exacerbate the situation. One is a system of taxes and tariffs that make it impossible for Canadian retail businesses to compete on a level playing field with their U.S. counterparts. It is also time for the federal government – and big business – to look at the real hardship of middle-income Canadians struggling to make ends meet in the face of increased gas and food prices and drastically-eroded spending power. While there is always some fickleness on the part of consumers, many of those venturing south to save right now are thinking of survival. There are many good reasons to ‘shop local.’ Cross-border shopping, on the scale that is now happening, is a short-sighted approach that tends to undermine our own standard of living. And pouring Canadian dollars into the U.S. economy is doing nothing to help our own, or address problems of Canadian business that, if solved, could see more money on hand to spend with our local businesses.

L OCALLY G LOBAL

All alternatives to burning garbage must be explored Chilliwack MLA John Les is right to be furious at Metro Vancouver’s plans for a waste-to-energy incineration plant and their seemingly arrogant attitude that it’s a done deal. In this paper last Tuesday it was reported that GVRD Waste Committee Chair Malcolm Brodie had told the media that “Whether people like it or not, that decision (for a waste-to-energy (WTE) facility) has been made.” Well, not so fast Brodie. Metro’s plan to burn its garbage still has to go through a stringent environmental review process. And the voices of the valley residents must be properly heard. It is all the more irritating that the Fraser Valley Regional District’s request for a seat on the WTE’s expert review panel was refused. Instead, a political liaison committee was set up that could accommodate a FVRD representa-

tive. So does that effectively place valley residents’ concerns a step away from where they need to be heard? That sounds like a makework tangent committee designed to dilute direct import of vital concerns necessary in decision making processes. A year ago, Environment Margaret Minister Terr y Lake promised valEVANS ley residents they would be able to have full input into the air quality debate and the consequences of Metro’s proposed facility.. Anything that impacts the fragile air quality in the Fraser Valley is of immediate concern to thousands of residents who, just a few years ago, complained long, hard and

successfully about Washington State’s SE2 power project proposal. The Americans wanted to build a power facility close enough to the border that it would have dumped 2.5 tonnes of toxic pollutants a day into the Fraser Valley airshed. The project was denied.   Waste to energy is essentially the process of burning garbage to generate energy. Metro Vancouver’s proposed incinerator would burn 500,000 tonnes of garbage a year and additional waste would go to its existing Burnaby incinerator or a landfill site. The problem with incineration facilities on the coast is the unique relationship of wind and geography. In the toxic mix of burned garbage are ultra-fine particles including microscopic nanoparticles which can pass undetected through the highest level of scrubbing equipment at the risk of caus-

ing serious health problems.   Prevailing wind patterns flow west to east and the geography of the valley tightens into a funnel close to the coastal mountains. Depending on the atmospheric conditions, the airshed can sit for days building up airborne pollutants. These contaminants cause that greasy yellow haze on hot summer days in the Upper Fraser Valley. With no wind, the mess just sits, causing health hazards to everyone beneath it. The particles can be absorbed deep into the lungs, causing respiratory and cardiac problems. And poor air quality is also a hazard to livestock and crops. Much more information is needed about WTE incineration technology and emissions. Vancouver may have a garbage management mess on its hands but maybe it should look to the source of that

mess – its residents. Perhaps there need to be many more rigorous programs to get people focused on waste reduction. My family lives in Columbia Valley where there is no garbage pick-up. So I know personally that the decision to reduce, re-use, recycle and compost all work very well. Close to zero waste is possible and at the very least with thought and planning city people can cut back on their garbage by 50 per cent. Industries need to look seriously at more take-back programs in a committed effort toward community waste reduction and every level of government needs to overhaul its own wastefulness. Before Metro Vancouver spends half a billion dollars on this project there needs to be serious dialogue between the GVRD and valley residents.

Rave reviews for Hello, Goodbye Hats off to Trevor McDonald and all the committees who made this happen. It excelled everyone’s expectations. It was truly phenomenal and deeply appreciated by  all I encountered.  The atmosphere was wonderful – warm, happy,

welcoming, appreciative and very nostalgic. The displays Saturday and gym were outstanding and the entertainment and tours were  excellent!  A lot of time and effort had  obviously  been involved  and the results were a

credit to all. What wonderful, warm memories you’ve provided us with Thank you, thank you, thank you! Fay Herle (nee Quinlan) (class of 1957)

Flood of new memories from CSS reunion

This past weekend’s CSS Hello, Goodbye Reunion for Chilliwack senior graduates from 1950 to 2012 (including this year’s Class of 2013) to celebrate  before the old building is demolished and the new school brought to life, was beyond spectacular!  From sold-out Friday night socials held all over the  community,

to the many amazing events on Saturday hosting throngs of past students of every age, school spirit could be found ever ywhere. The halls of the old school  were alive with reunions and storytelling.  Saturday night came alive with five bands blazing the stage with Chilliwack talent and the AgRec Centre filled with 1,500 cel-

ebrating together until closing. The only draw back from the weekend is that now, with a brand new plethora of memories and stories of old and new friends  originating from the building that brought us all together in the first place, it makes it  doubly hard to watch her go down.  On behalf of the

Planning Committee of Hello, Goodbye, we wish to thank our incredible  sponsors, volunteers and  former  grads (from all points around the world), who fuelled this event to be over and  above what any of us  originally dreamed it to be. www.hellogoodbye.ca  Karen deNevers

Fraser Health ruins reader’s enjoyment of water We don’t live anywhere near Greendale and our water was chlorinated. I would like to know why. I am horrified by it and am not pleased, anything I drink with water or ice cube tastes like it’s been chlorinated. It takes the enjoyment out of a glass of cold water.

I can’t help but wonder how this will affect our health. I feel the people of Chilliwack have lost the battle, once Fraser Health chlorinated the water that’s their way of saying we won and will not stop now. Fraser Health is employed by the government and you can’t fight them, they have the upper

hand. I believe the only thing next to do is buy clean bottled water. We taxpayers will feel the effect, we pay for our water and if people go to bottled water the city will need to raise our taxes. So thanks Fraser Health once again for affecting my enjoyment of clean Chilliwack water. Kathy Esau

Change needed to legislation governing water MLA Les, instead of posturing and postulating, simply needs to change the legislation that Fraser Health is enforcing. How about changing the responsibility for enforcement to the municipalities? This would allow the municipality to do the math as to whether

another full time policeman or fireman is more likely to save lives and prevent injur y than dumping bleach in the water. The worst water borne illness disaster in Canadian histor y, Walker ton Ontario, occurred in a chlorinated system.

Fraser Health is an out of control bureaucracy. They can’t even get their health care “professionals” to get free flu shots and instead spend tens of thousands of dollars on face masks. Lack of cost-benefit analysis by the health authorities is one of the reasons

that health care costs are overwhelming the provincial budget. The buck stops with the provincial government MLAs. They control the safe water legislation and are supposed to be responsible for health care.

What do you think?

2013-2014 School Calendar In the Spring of 2012, new legislation was introduced that eliminated the standard school calendar in British Columbia. Boards of Education now establish local calendars for their school districts. The option of a two-week Spring Break was introduced to our partners but a solution could not be agreed upon in sufficient time. The Chilliwack Board of Education approved an option to remain as “Status Quo” as per 2012-2013, with a one-week Spring break. Our district is committed to continuing to explore a two-week Spring break option to be presented to the Board for the 20142015 school year.

Public deserves a vote on chlorination issue

I am only 15 years old, but I can honestly say that I would rather keep our water clean and pure with the small chance of bacteria getting into the water supply, than be poisoned everyday by chlorine. Chlorine is a poison. You can smell it and taste it in the water.

Chlorine by-products increase your risk of cancer. Fraser Health is just doing their job, but the citizens of Chilliwack should get a vote on whether to add chlorine to our water or not. Even just the chlorine that was added to our water to flush out Greendale’s E.coli was enough

to reinforce my opinion that chlorine should not be added to Chilliwack’s water. The people have spoken and now it’s time for our government to give us the chance to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to chlorine. Erin Giesbrecht

Fraser Valley roller derby leagues team up Jenna Hauck The Progress

Two local roller derby leagues have put their pasts behind them and have joined forces as one. Chilliwack’s Voodoo Derby Dollz (VDD), and Abbotsford’s Reign Valley Vixens (RVV), amalgamated earlier this year to create Fraser Valley Roller Derby Association (FVRDA) — an all-women, flat-track roller derby league. It was a mutual thing, says Alanna Morley, formerly of RVV (who goes by the derby moniker Billy Klubbin’). The idea came from her and one of the VDD coaches. “We thought, ‘hey there’s a lot of skaters, let’s all get together and just play,’” says Morley. The two talked within their

own leagues, and no one had a problem with the merge. “We wanted to be more like (Vancouver’s Terminal City Rollergirls). We wanted to grow and have a large league with more than one team,” says former VDD skater Sophia Wright (aka Sofa-King Wright). The two leagues have not always been best pals. They’ve had their disagreements in the past, but the few bad apples that caused the rivalry are no longer around. “We’re not products of the old drama. We are all fresh skaters,” says Morley. RVV had a lot of fresh meat skaters, and VDD had more veterans, so it was a good mix. “I feel really good about it,” Morley says about the two leagues joining. “It feels nice to start with a clean slate. Now we can focus on team building.”

The two leagues officially merged in January. That month, they had a co-ed scrimmage in Abbotsford to raise money for one of VDD’s former skaters, Julie Barr (aka Sheila Hurt U). Barr lost part of her left leg, toes and fingers due to an aggressive bacterial infection called group A streptococcal around Christmas. The fundraiser scrimmage brought in more than $30,000 for Barr and her family. In addition, Belfor Property Restoration is currently paying for the rental of a at-home stair lift for as long as Barr needs. Last week, after spending three months in the hospital, Barr is back home. FVRDA is now gearing up for its next big event, an open house and recruitment on March 10. The new league currently

has about 45 skaters from Hope to Surrey. They practise at four different facilities — two in Chilliwack (Heritage Park and Landing Sports Centre), and two in Abbotsford (Cadet Hall and Ag Rec Centre). The open house and recruitment will be a opportunity for people to ask questions about derby, try on gear and sign up to join the league. They will also have demos and scrimmaging. The free event takes place on Sunday, March 10 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Landing Sports Centre in Chilliwack. People are welcome to drop-in at any time. For more info about the event or about FVRDA, email info@fvrda.com. photo@theprogress.com Twitter.com/PhotoJennalism

Come have a Cuppa Tea and a Chat with Ann Davis The Ann Davis Transition Society is holding its first ever ‘Cuppa Tea and a Chat’ event to herald International Women’s Day 2013 on Friday March 8 starting at 11 a.m. Board members will be greeting guests over a steaming cup of tea and a cookie in the parking lot of the ADTS offices at 9046 Young Road. “We are looking forward to meeting face to face with folks in Chilliwack to

talk about the crucial work we do to create violence-free communities,” said ADTS board chair Kathy Clement. “International Women’s Day is a perfect time to celebrate the achievements and the plans ADTS has for the future.” Ann Davis Transition Society began offering a safe place for abused women and their children in 1979. It has expanded with individual and group counselling

for women, children, men, couples and families, with cutting-edge information, advocacy and community education. ADTS counselling services helps more than 2300 people a year, 600 of whom are children. Cuppa Tea and A Chat will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 8, at 9046 Young Road. Follow and like the ADTS page on Facebook, or check out www.anndavis.org jfeinberg@theprogress.com

High school students in Chilliwack receive unique support to pursue a career in trades, as they sit in the middle of an interlinked educational system that guides them from class to career. The B.C. government estimates that there will be one million job openings by 2020, 43 per cent of which will be trades or technical occupations. By that time, there will be a shortage of 61,500 workers. Keeping an eye on this, the Chilliwack school district has been tightening the connection between students and the job market, and providing students with an opportunity for a near-seamless entry into the workforce. This year, 160 students are enrolled in the secondary school apprenticeship (SSA) program, and well over a thousand have graduated from it since inception in 1995. District apprenticeship coordinator Colin Mitchell estimates that nearly all students — 98 per cent by his estimate — who start the program, complete it. He also believes that the SSA program improves high school graduation rates. “A student who is at risk of leaving school, can actually leave school, and work, and get credit towards graduation,” says Mitchell. To get into the program, students aged 15–19 find a placement with a certified tradesperson in one of over 100 approved disciplines, including electrician, plumbing, cooking, hairstyling, carpentry, dairy production, horticulture, and landscaping. After an interview with Mitchell, they have a list of requirements to complete before successfully finishing the program: they must work 900 hours (just under six months of full time work), take several SSA high school courses, and maintain at least a C+ average in their Grade 12 courses. The big selling point for the program is that not only do students receive a course credit for every 120 hours worked, but all the work hours are paid by the business that takes them on. At the average $13 an hour, students come out of the program with about $11,700 in earnings. They are now in a much better financial position to pursue higher education, or set up their adult lives, than most high school graduates. Still in high school, Elena Schroots has already worked a year as a chef at Earls Restaurant in Chilliwack under the SSA program. She finds it easy to balance the dozen or so work hours per week with her fulltime Grade 11 education at Sardis Secondary School. In the fall, Schroots will be one of a growing number of SSA students who are taking a University of the Fraser Valley course while still in high school. Under a full scholarship by the Industry Training Authority, she is starting Level 1 of the university’s cook apprenticeship program. Continued: TRADES/ p11

country’s largest dairy cattle research facility in Agassiz, the UBC Dairy and Education Research Centre, and complete three weeks of instruction at UBC’s Agassiz campus as part of the package. In some cases, SSA program students graduate with a university certificate before finishing high school. This connects nicely with UFV’s own drive to set itself up as a regional powerhouse of trades and technical training. The dedicated Faculty of Trades resides in the brand new Trades & Technology Centre at the Chilliwack campus and offers a wide variety of technical certificates. At the other end of the educational spectrum, Chilliwack’s middle schools are ramping up their hands-on education as well. Vedder Middle School recently purchased a computer-controlled router and plasma cutter, to give students “a taste of real-world manufacturing systems in a simpler, easier to understand way,” wrote applied skills teacher Paul Laurillard in an email. “Couple this with today’s tech-savvy student, and you create a process where older traditional manufacturing techniques are merged with the high-tech world of computer manufacturing. Exposure will allow for a direct transfer of knowledge from school to industry,” he continued. Most SSA program students receive a $1,000 provincial scholarship after they finish the program. Despite representing only 2% of the provincial student population, Chilliwack’s students win 16% of scholarships. 78 will receive it this year. Former SSA program student Kiah Williams is now in the Cascade Culinary Arts School in Abbotsford, and prepares appetizers, salads and desserts at Restaurant 62. An Education Centre graduate, she sees the apprenticeship program as a better option to quitting school. “Most people think, ‘I fail at school, so I have to work.’ That’s not the case. You can still go to school part-time and work full-time, and this course gives you credit for showing some initiative and actually going through school,” she said.

HOME AND GARDEN 2013 Smart spending tips for spring home improvements Spring home improvement season is on the way, and if you’re like most homeowners you have a list of jobs you want to accomplish. Some will be small, economical do-it-yourself projects. Others may require the services of a professional and a greater monetary investment. However you accomplish your home improvement plans, it’s important to do so as cost-effectively as possible. To make the most of your home improvement projects this spring, take these five steps: 1. Define what you want to do. Be precise and detailed in exactly

what you want to accomplish. Going into a home improvement project without a clear vision of the end result means you’ll be making decisions on the fly - and that’s the type of decision-making that can become costly. Knowing exactly what the scope of your project will be can help you better estimate the costs and stay on track with your budget and objectives. 2. Decide if you can do it yourself or need to hire a pro. Yes, DIY can save you dough, but only if you can do the job right the first time. Fixing mistakes can cost more in the long run than hiring a

professional. Be honest with yourself about your DIY capabilities, and if a project is beyond your scope, look for a pro to

earn an honest living, there are also less reliable ones out there, too. Doing business only with companies

Spring is a great time to make improvements that will increase your home’s resale value help. 3. Make sure you’re hiring a reputable contractor. While the majority of home improvement contractors are honorable and just trying to

or contractors who are licensed and bonded can help you weed out the scam artists. Always seek independent reviews of any contractor you may hire. Don’t just rely on

“We rock your world”

winstones “Our thanks to S us donation for their genero pport our of a vanity to su on, with her daughter, Shann medical bills”

the references he or she provides. 4. Create a budget for your project, communicate it to your contractor

and make sure he or she understands you’re committed to staying on budget. Good contractors know how to balance quality concerns and cost constraints

W E N AT

and will work with you to avoid cost overruns. Your budget should lay out how much you will spend on materials and labor, with some “wiggle room” left over to cover emergencies or necessary changes. 5. Check your credit. It would be great to pay cash for everything your home needs, but it’s not always possible. It’s likely you’ll need to fund larger projects with credit, so it’s important to understand your credit status before you apply for any kind of loan or line of credit. Knowing your credit score and what’s on your credit report can help you better understand the likeli-

hood of you getting the loan you need and what terms you might expect to get on a loan. Enrolling in a product such as freecreditscore.com offers you the chance to get credit score alerts, identity protection alerts and fraud resolution support. Spring is a great time to make improvements that will increase your home’s resale value and your enjoyment of your home. It’s important to make wise decisions about how you’ll manage and fund your home improvement projects, so that when the work is done, you’re left with a better home - and as little debt as possible.

A FAMILY TRADITION FOR 50 YEARS

A lot of extra living space can be added to a home just by finishing the basement. As well as increasing the value of your house, a finished basement can also improve your quality of life if you design it according to your tastes and your requirements. In your remodelled space you could set up an office or a wine cellar, add a bedroom or a cor-

ner for relaxing, create a play area for the children or an activity centre for teenagers, or build a family room or a home cinema. Whatever type of project you decide on, include an extra bathroom in the plan and a practical laundry room with a clothing chute from the upper floors to the basement. Don’t forget to work in plenty of storage space as well as sufficient electrical outlets, telephone jacks, and cable connections. Once you decide on exactly what you want, your next step is to draw up a plan. This will help you ensure that there is room enough for people to circulate. Decide if you prefer enclosed rooms or open areas. If activities that require quiet and concentration are planned, such as a home office, a library, or a bedroom, you will probably opt for enclosed rooms. On the other hand, an open area is perfect if you plan to

spend time in a communal, multifunctional space, such as in a rec room, home cinema, or exercise area. Draw up a list of the necessary materials and determine what work you can do yourself and what you need to entrust

The importance of a well-maintained property The very latest in interior decorating, a home and garden that are the envy of the neighbourhood, a house that doesn’t show its age... Keeping up with this combination of factors could lead to a considerable increase in the value of your property. The upkeep of a home often just involves small yearly modifications and simple jobs. A neat exterior, well-pruned hedges, materials in a good state of repair, and a clear, unimpeded view of the home all add up to a well-maintained property and a proud homeowner. Where the exterior is concerned, maintaining the siding should be your priority, as this will protect your home from bad weather for years

to come. The roof is the other part of your home that should never be neglected. For example, the state of the roof could deteriorate if moss is allowed to cover it. Don’t

Did you know that a well-planned yard can increase the value of your property neglect the concrete surrounding an in-ground pool and always protect garden furniture from the harmful rays of the

sun. Did you know that a well-planned yard can increase the value of your property? As they grow, the trees you plant will add to the worth of your home as well as adding to your comfort both outside and inside: trees block the wind in cool weather and provide shade on hot summer days. That can mean a reduction in both airconditioning and heating costs. So give free rein to your gardening talents by planting trees, creating flower beds, and establishing hedges. Lastly, spread compost to enrich your soil for a beautiful lawn and don’t forget to weed regularly in order to enhance the appearance of your shrubs and flowers.

7:30 PM MARCH

This past February was warmer, and drier, than the 30-year average conditions for Chilliwack, according to a new release by Environment Canada. And snowfall was significantly less than average. “Weather conditions throughout the month were generally mild and moist as a series of Pacific frontal systems continued to move across the Province,” noted Environment Canada in the release. Daily mean temperatures ranged from 2.3 C to 8.3 C during last month, compared with an average 1.2–8.1 C. Rainfall also dropped from a 30-year average precipitation of 195 mm for February, to 152 mm. This was despite the “pineapple express” deluge at the end of the month, which brought 49 mm of rain. There were only four days of frost, at a time when average is 10. For both January and February, snowfall was 98 per cent below normal.

In the folklore of the American West, Pecos Bill has been called the creator of the Rio Grande, the lasso, the rodeo, and the first cowboy songs. Follow Bill on the journey from his childhood: from being raised by coyotes, through his many adventures, riding a cyclone, fighting mythical beasts, and falling in love with a woman who rides a catfish - to the inevitable settling of the West. The combination of shadow figures with the sounds of various instruments and effects all create a fantastic and lively rendition of Pecos Bill: A Tall Tale.

Oregon Shadow Theatre is a Portland based company specializing in the art of shadow puppetry and their plays have toured across the United States and in Canada. The Cultural Centre has previously hosted Oregon Shadow Theatre when they performed Thumbelina in our 2011/2012 Season - it was a magical treat for all.

Chilliwack set to mark Women’s Day Chilliwack is gearing up to celebrate Women’s Day on March 8 in style, with an open event featuring diverse speakers, and an art show. The Chilliwack Soroptimists have partnered with Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony to give the community an opportunity to stand together, and unite against violence against women. A key component is the participation of men. “We are part of a growing movement that is saying: This is not just a women’s issue. This is a community issue that all members of society, including men, need to address as human beings with the inherent right to live in peace and security,” said O’Mahony in a press release. In this light, the organizers are bringing in two men as keynote speakers: Damian George, a spiritual advisor in the correctional system and member of the Moose Hide Campaign; and Dr. Rob Lees, a psychologist and university professor. Four women speakers will follow the keynotes. Bankruptcy trustee Sheila Smelt will speak about women and financial abuse, personal trainer Tanja Shaw will cover fitness, B.C. NDP candidate for Chilliwack, Patti MacAhonic, will address time management, and Bobbi Jacob, director of local shelter Ann Davis Transition Society, will provide a brief on the organization’s programs. The event will take place on March 8, 1–4 p.m., at St. Thomas’s Anglican Church Ministry Centre (46068 Gore Avenue, Chilliwack). To raise awareness about violence against women, the organizers are hosting a media contest, and encouraging local students to submit photography, posters, videos, and other art on the day’s theme. The Chilliwack Huskers Football Club will present the prizes at the event, consisting of a $1,000 grand prize, $500 for second place, and $250 for third. Deadline to submit has been extended to Thurs, March 7, the day before the big event, to make sure that everyone has a chance to get their submissions in, says Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony. Students can send submissions to anita@legacypacific.com or gwen.o’mahony.mla@leg.bc.ca.

and Enver Creek (7058 on Saturday). During their four game winning streak Sardis has received contributions from unexpected sources. Each game has seen five or six players hitting double digits, an interesting development for a team that has relied heavily on big guns Eric Rogers,

Hayden Lejeune and Cam Servatius. “Seniors Jordan Van Drimmlen, Jason Kroeker and Mike Gregory have brought their games to a new level,” said coach Kyle Graves. Lejeune earned a second team all-star award for his play during Valleys. Sardis heads into

McCarthy has initiated, organized and driven what has become a major UFV athletics community outreach initiative. The ‘Walk and Knock food bank drive’ is an event where UFV athletes walk the community on Halloween evening collecting food for

the Abbotsford Food Bank. In recent years, McCarthy has also participated in the Fraser Valley’s chapter of the ’Operation Red Nose’ program and has led UFV’s CIS ‘Shoot for the Cure’ event. She is a three-time winner of the UFV athletics community service award. “Alexa has been a major contributor to UFV, the athletics program and the Fraser Valley communities,” said UFV athletic director Rocky Olfert. “She

has had a significant impact on the culture we are trying to create. Her efforts to continually put others before herself and model this as a student-athlete has been an inspiration to all of us.” McCarthy becomes the second Cascade to earn the Canada West Sylvia Sweeney nomination.

Cabinet ministers held a hastily arranged meeting in Vancouver Sunday, and emerged united in support of Clark. One disputed point is a plan to

apologize in the legislature for the “head tax� on Chinese immigrants, imposed by Ottawa from 1885 to 1935. Such apologies are proposed in the strategy document as “quick wins� before the May 14 provincial election. Vancouver-Fraserview MLA Kash Heed objected to the move on the weekend, telling CKNW radio that such an apology would be “hollow.� In a terse statement issued Friday afternoon, Clark announced that she

has accepted the resignation of her long-time assistant, Kim Haakstad, who distributed the ethnic voter plan to party and government staff via their personal e-mail addresses. Haakstad, Clark’s deputy chief of staff, and “outreach� staff from the premier’s office are subject to an internal investigation ordered by Clark Thursday. John Dyble, head of the public service, is to examine whether government communications resources were redirected to

help deliver ethnic votes to the B.C. Liberal Party. A January 2012 draft strategy memo leaked to the NDP opposition discusses ways to improve the governing party’s popularity with immigrant communities, including recruiting new members and spokespeople to call and write to ethnic media outlets. Clark issued an apology for the document, read in the legislature Thursday by Deputy Premier Rich Coleman.

WEINRATH Armgard Anna

nee von Jacobi Armgard Anna Weinrath passed away peacefully, on Friday March 1, 2013 in her hometown of Chilliwack, BC. She is survived by four children, Pat (Peter), Michael (Janet), Diane (Jack), and Tessa (Kenny), nine grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren and her brother, Andreas von Jacobi (Christiane). She is predeceased by her sister Mechtiilde, parents Anna and Karl von Jacobi, and her beloved husband Theodor Weinrath. Armgard was born in Brausendorf, Germany on February 20, 1927. She emigrated to Canada in the 1960‘s and was known to all in Canada as “Armi”. At first, she lived and worked in Montreal as a secretary. In 1971, she moved to BC and married her beloved Theo. Together they raised his four children, who in turn blessed them with 9 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Armgard was a loving wife who worked side by side with her best friend and husband in varied successful business ventures including a corner grocery store and a cleaning business. They lived in many communities across the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland. She didn’t need much: a dachshund at her side, a piano to play, and a ticket to Hawaii in her pocket. We will all remember Oma with much love. Visitation will be held on Friday March 8, 2013 at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church, 8909 Mary Street, Chilliwack, BC at 10:15 am with the funeral following there at 11 am and then a graveside service at Vedder View Valley Cemetery, 44675 Watson Road. There will be a tea at the Mount Cheam Lions Hall, 45580 Spadina, at approximately 12:30 for all who wish to reminisce and honour her memory. Special thanks to Dr. Jones and the staff at Bradley Centre for their warm care.

Tyler Cannon passed away on February 27, 2013 at Cascade Hospice at the age of 25 years. CANNON He was born December 15, 1987 in North Vancouver. Tyler is survived by his mother Valerie, stepfather Dave brother James, sister in law Tanya, girlfriend Amber, Auntie Maureen, Uncle Ron, cousin Jeff (Brianne), Auntie Kathleen, Uncle Bruce, cousin Katie (Corey), Logan as well as numerous other relatives. He is also survived by his birth father, Doug. Tyler will always be remembered for his dry wit and mischievous smile. He made many friends from his school years, involvement in car clubs and his working life all of whom he greatly appreciated. A Celebration of Tyler’s life will be held. Donations can be made in his honour to hospice care in Chilliwack. We would like to thank the wonderful staff there for their care and compassion Tyler and those around him received during his difficult journey. “Rest in peace my gentle soul” To Those Who Mourn (an excerpt) For that is the real truth, man is a soul and has a body The body is not the man; it is only the clothing of the man. What you call death is the laying aside of a worn-out garment, and it is no more the end of the man than it is the end of you when you remove your coat. Therefore you have not lost your friends’ you have only lost sight of the cloak in which you were accustomed to see him. the cloak is gone, but the man who wore it is not: Surely it is the man that you love and not the garment C.W.

would like to thank MP Mark Strahl for selecting me to be among 30 recipients from Chilliwack who were awarded one of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Medals. My family and I came to Chilliwack in 1972 when the Chilliwack radio station hired me as News & Sports Director. However, I very quickly found myself doing play by play coverage of the first Chilliwack Bruins hockey club. Terry Bodman was my color commentator and for eight years we worked together in the old coliseum. I was also involved with the 3 Field hockey team from CFB Chilliwack which played in a senior league. Then there was the popular Peewee Hockey Jamboree in the days when all the kids slept in Evergreen Hall and all the food was prepared by the cooks at CFB Chilliwack. In 1974 I was elected President of the Chilliwack Senior Men’s softball league, a position I held for six years, at a time when Church League softball teams abounded, and was instrumental in getting a second ball diamond built for softball. I also became involved with Rec Men’s hockey and was President for two years. Meanwhile, I also served as a director-at-large with the Fraser Valley Cubs and Scouts Association covering all groups from Chilliwack to Boston Bar for close to 20 years Working at CHWK radio I covered numerous news events including fires and accidents, and countless other meetings. In 1976 my mandate

not only covered news & sports but the Farm shows as well. Some say I virtually became “the voice” for just about anything and everything that happened in Chilliwack often reporting from my “Cherry Ford news cruiser”. Officially retired in 1997, I was re-hired to cover local news only for another two years bringing my tenure at CHWK to 27 years.     In 2001 I accepted a job with The Chilliwack Progress) editing a farm publication called West Coast Farmer, which I still do today. During this time I have personally interviewed hundreds of farmers and others associated with agriculture, in addition to developing on-going stories about the industry. It has been a pleasure to be part of the history of Chilliwack over the past 40 years and it was indeed an honor to receive recognition of my work.

thought you might like to talk with me. Maybe you have some good questions to ask me.” Not knowing he was going to call I told him I did not have any prepared questions, to which he replied, “Aren’t you the Farm Director.” I said yes and he said, “Good, let’s just talk.” And we did. Gerry Ritz, our present day Federal Minister of Agriculture, called Whelan a “proud Southwestern Ontarian – and a strong voice for Canadian agriculture.” “Whelan was planted firmly on the side of farmers. His more than twelve years as Agriculture Minister serve as a clear testament to the passion and dedication he brought to the job every day. I am privileged to continue Mr. Whelan’s efforts in putting farmers first, because as Eugene would agree, a strong farm gate is the backbone of our economy.”

Whelan

Wise

Who can forget the big green Stetson hat that the late Eugene Whelan wore when he was the Federal Minister of Agriculture. He stood out wherever he went. He was probably best known for introducing Supply Management to the Dairy, Egg, and Poultry industries. My personal recollection of Mr. Whelan occurred in the late seventies after I had taken over responsibility for the farm show on CHWK radio. It was just before Christmas and the phone rang in the newsroom. I answered it, and heard the voice at the other end say, “Hello, This is Eugene Whelan calling. I

John Wise, a dairy farmer from Ontario and another former Federal Agriculture Minister also passed away recently. He served in municipal politics, farm organizations and as the member in Parliament for Elgin County for 16 years. During his tenure as Minister, Wise helped develop the North American Free Trade agreement. He also helped to lay the foundation for today’s world-class wine industry. Wise was recognized by his peers as a person who was a capable and realistic minister with knowledge of agriculture from the ground up. Blueberry Cannons

The efforts to reduce (or eliminate) the use of cannons by blueberry growers continues with efforts in both Abbotsford and Langley. The blueberry growers representation on the Abbotsford committee has withdrawn because they feel the committee is biased. It all comes down to which group should prevail, the growers or the residential land owners. The Farm Industry Review Board drafted new regulations aimed at reducing the effect of the cannons, but that hasn’t stopped efforts to ban them. It is a proven fact that cannons are the best bird scare device, but in the past they have proven to be a nuisance to many urban residents, people by the way who probably eat blueberries. Hopefully the issue can be resolved satisfactorily. Sandra Tretick

Sandra, a former senior communications officer with the Investment Agriculture Foundation in BC, and her husband Chris are now living aboard their boat (named Moken) in the Philippines. “It’s a trawler-style single diesel with sail assist 51 feet in overall length. It was manufactured by Seahorse Marine in mainland China but the design is called a Diesel Duck and the designer is from the San Juan Islands in Washington State. It doesn’t go fast but we do have very long range capability.” They plan to spend at least a year exploring some of the 7,107 islands that make up this south-east Asian archipelago before venturing further afield.

Abbotsford takes aim at blueberry cannon bylaw Kevin Mills Black Press

New restrictions on the use of controversial propane cannons in Abbotsford could be coming in the form of a municipal bylaw. Considered a noisy nuisance by many residents who live near blueberry fields, the civic legislation would impose new limitations on the timing and placement of audible bird scare devices (ABSDs), currently regulated by the ministry of agriculture. The draft was created by the

farm bylaw committee, a group of Abbotsford city councillors, farm representatives and members of the public. Coun. John Smith said the ministry regulations are “impossible to enforce” and a bylaw would put management in city hands. A full ban on ABSDs has been suggested, but Smith worries about the effect on berry farmers, who lose around 10 per cent of their crops to birds. “I can see the need for cannons in a certain case.” The draft bylaw seeks middle

ground, he said, adding that the problems exist between rural berry farmers and residential neighbours, but also with other farmers, including those who own animals that are spooked by the explosions. Propane cannons emit loud blasts, which can be more than 100 decibels, and may fire more than 100 times per hour, with multiple shots. Smith said the noise is similar to a shotgun, and the repetition makes it sound like “a war zone.” The ministry suggests local

governments adopt a farm bylaw increasing restrictions, instead of seeking a ban. The committee’s draft would regulate the noise level, frequency of use, distance from homes and hours of operation for the devices. The bylaw would stipulate that the devices do not exceed 60 decibels, face away from neighbouring homes, and prohibit use on Saturday afternoons, Sundays and statutory holidays. The committee is seeking input on the draft bylaw until Feb. 8. Comments can be directed to the

manager of bylaw enforcement, Gordon Ferguson, at 604-864-5630 or gferguson@abbotsford.ca, or on an online form at www.abbotsford. ca. Though the bylaw would improve conditions for neighbours, Smith said the problem for farmers will continue, as ABSDs only scare birds to other crops. He said something must be done about the starlings eating the berries. “It’s a big issue. It isn’t going to get any better.”

A fifth generation farmer and his wife have been named BC’s Outstanding Young Farmers for 2013. Thirty-year-old Troy Harker and his wife, Sara, also 30, farm in the Cawston area considered by many as the organic capital of Canada, They received their award from BC Lieutenant Governor Judy Guichon and Canadian OYF president Derek Janzen in front of over 400 people at the annual BC Agriculture Gala in Abbotsford. The Harkers run a family farm which also includes Troy’s parents and sister. Based on a diverse 30-acre organic vegetable farm and orchard founded by Troy’s great-great grandfather, William James Manery, in the 1880’s, the farm’s 48 full-time and seasonal workers also operate a fruit winery, on-farm retail store, restaurant program and wholesale distribution service under the banners: Harker Organics, Rustic Roots Winery, Farm to Fork Delivery and Harvest Moon Growers. When Troy and Sara joined the operation in 2006, then comprising only an organic farm, retail market and small organic packing and distribution service, they “saw the need for diversification.” They responded by adding the restaurant delivery program, which now serves 25 restaurants in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. Sara is also the winemaker for Rustic Roots, a new fruit winery which has given the Harkers and their fellow organic growers a rewarding outlet for their cull fruit. They are slowly converting their orchard to high-density plantings and now have two acres of Honeycrisp apple trees in a two foot by 10 foot super-spindle production system. Their wholesale packing business has also expanded and now distributes organic fruit and vegetables from 25 organic growers with a total of 550 acres of production. The 2013 B.C. Outstanding Young Farmer award is one of a long list of awards the Harkers have received in recent years. In 2011, the B.C. Institute of Agrologists named them the Farming Family of the Year and the Canadian Wine Awards honored them for the Best Fruit Wine in Canada. Harker Organics has also been named one of B.C’.s Top 5 Agrotourism Destinations and Eat Magazine’s Best Okanagan Farm. The Harkers will represent B.C. at the national OYF competition in Saskatchewan in November.

Federal funding helps dairy herd management The Federal Government is helping dairy farmers improve their herd management. Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz has announced an investment for the Canadian Dairy Network (CDN) to develop software that will evaluate diseaseresistant traits in livestock. “Our Government is proud to support innovative projects like this one that strengthen the dairy industry in Canada,” said Minister Ritz. “This investment will help farmers increase their competitiveness through better management of their herds and improved animal health on their farms.” CDN provides genetic evaluation services to dairy farms across the country. Data is collected on cattle through a national genetic evaluation system, which provides information to farmers on over 60 traits, such as the quality of milk produced and occurrences of disease in their herds. This investment of up to

$54,000 will be used to develop a specialized software program to track mastitis in dairy cattle—a mammary gland infection that results in poor milk quality and is costly to the sector. Farms across Canada will report each incidence of mastitis, enabling CDN to eventually determine disease-resistant traits in cattle, allowing farmers to better select animals for breeding. This will result in better milk quality, reduced use of antibiotics and improved animal welfare, ultimately helping to boost the bottom line of dairy farmers. “This initiative will add to the comprehensive portfolio of genetic and genomic evaluation services offered by CDN to help Canadian producers have more profitable dairy farms and places Canada amongst the first countries in the world with a national system to improve disease resistance,” added CDN General Manager, Brian Van Doormaal.

This project is supported through the Agricultural Innovation Program (AIP), a $50-million initiative announced as part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2011. AIP is part of the Government’s commitment to help Canadian producers benefit from cutting-edge science and technology. AIP boosts the development and commercialization of innovative new products, technologies and processes for the agricultural sector. In September 2012, federal, provincial and territorial Ministers of Agriculture reached agreement on the five-year Growing Forward 2 (GF2) policy framework. The new agreement will continue to drive innovation and long-term economic growth in Canada. In addition to a generous suite of business risk management programs, governments have agreed to invest more than $3 billion over five years in innovation, competitiveness and market development.

The Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) announced that butter and skim milk powder prices will increase on April 1, two months later than has been the norm. This year, the CDC delayed its decision on support prices in order to further its consultations with industry stakeholders and to take into account the many changes occurring in the industry. The support price for butter will increase from $7.2810 to $7.3379 per kg, and the support price for skim milk powder will increase from $6.3673 to $6.4170 per kg. Support prices are the prices at which the CDC buys and sells butter and skim milk powder to balance seasonal changes in demand on the

domestic market. They are also used as references by provincial marketing boards to price industrial milk used to make products such as yogurt, cheese, butter and skim milk powder. “The change in support price reflects the increase in the cost of inputs, especially the cost of feed,” says Randy Williamson, Chairman of the CDC. “However, it remains considerably lower than the rate of inflation for food which currently stands at 2.4%. For dairy producers, this increase in support prices should translate into a revenue increase of 0.9% for industrial milk. Prices received by producers for fluid milk are determined by provincial authorities. The CDC helps design, implement, and administer policies and programs to address dairy producer and processor needs.

UBC professor wins IAF Award of Excellence Grant Ullyot

West Coast Farmer The Investment Agriculture Foundation of B.C. (IAF) presented Dr. Jim Thompson, Professor and Director of the University of British Columbia (UBC) Dair y Education and Research Centre with its 2013 Award of Excellence for Innovation in Agriculture and Agri-Food. IAF Chair Peter Levelton said Dr. Thompson is cited for his contributions in facilitating innovation in his field. His pioneering efforts in developing UBC’s Dairy Education and Research Centre have produced significant advancements for the dairy sector in B.C. and beyond.” Dr. Thompson has worked hand in hand with Nelson Dinn to create a world class dairy research institute at PARC (Pacific Agriculture Research Centre) in Agassiz. A self-sustaining operation that supports the development and adaptation of new technologies for the dairy industry, the Centre is unparalleled on an international scale. The facilities

benefit producers in B.C. and around the world by supporting research and teaching in the areas of cattle reproduction, nutrition, housing, welfare, and nutrient and energy recovery from manure. Recently Dr. Thompson confirmed that UBC has approved the construction of the long awaited new housing for both students and other research personnel. It was the one missing piece in the overall development of the dairy education and research centre. And this project is another feather in

successful research partnership with the UBC Dairy Education and Research Centre, which benefits countless dairy producers with its world-class research.” “Dr. Thompson’s accomplishments are a key reason British Columbia’s dairy sector continues to be respected as an international leader in discovery and excellence, said BC Minister of Agriculture Norm Letnick. “On behalf of all British Columbians, I extend my congratulations and appreciation to Dr

Thompson for his dedication and leadership. His success exemplifies the innovation the Investment Agriculture Foundation and the B.C. government work so hard to encourage and support.” The IAF Award of Excellence for Innovation in Agriculture and Agri-Food celebrates the innovative thinkers in the B.C. agriculture and agri-food industry.

Free trade talks with European union continue Grant Ullyot

West Cost Farmer Already the negotiations that were to bring about a free trade agreement with European countries are a year behind schedule, and while there are indications that the talks could wrap up soon, no one knows for sure when that will be. Prime Minister Harper earlier said he expected the talks to wind up by the end of 2012. A free trade agreement with Europe would become Canada’s most important international trade arrangement since the North American free trade agreement came into effect. According to sources, a free trade deal with Europe would eliminate tariffs on a wide range of products and ser vices and make some European consumer products cheaper to buy. Once an agreement is reached it must then be ratified by both the House of Commons and the Senate and that process could take several weeks and/or months to complete. Our chief negotiator is Steve Verheul considered by many as one of the world’s best.

The real story of how B.C. chicken is produced Grant Ullyot

West Coast Farmer An educational video, which will provide consumers with factual information on how chicken is produced in British Columbia, is receiving Buy Local program funding. The BC Chicken Growers' Association will receive $15,500 to help with the cost of producing the short movie and the literature to support it. The video will showcase B.C. family run chicken farms and the responsibility and care they take in ensuring animal welfare, biosecurity, food safety and the environment. The video will debunk several myths, among them that BC chicken producers use hormones and steroids which is not true. The use of hormones and steroids in the production of chicken is illegal in Canada and has been since the 1960s. Another myth claims broiler chickens are raised in cages. They are not. They are raised in free-run barns and have free access to both their feed and water. The poultry industry is the second-largest agricultural industry in British Columbia with farmers generating just

under half a billion dollars in total combined revenues in 2011. The chicken produced in B.C. is popular both locally and internationally. Asia is a key market. The Philippines is the biggest importer receiving more than $10 million in B.C. chicken products. Building the local market

for B.C. foods is a key commitment of government's Agrifoods Strategy. A component of the BC Jobs Plan, this strategy is designed to continue to grow the agrifoods sector into a $14-billion-a-year industry by 2017. BC’s Minister of Agriculture Norm Letnick says, “Our hard

working BC chicken farmers located throughout the province and their high-quality product is consistently in the top five commodities in terms of farms sales each year in B.C. I congratulate the B.C. Chicken Growers' Association on receiving this funding and look for ward to seeing the video when it is finished, as they have a great story to tell." BC Chicken Growers' Association president Ravi Bathe is quoted as saying “Growers are grateful for the support from the BC Government under the Buy Local program. This project will showcase our B.C. familyoperated chicken farms and promote the fact we raise the highest-quality chicken in the world without the use of hormones or growth promotants. B.C. chicken is a healthy food choice and a very good protein source." B.C. has more than 300 chicken growers. They produce a variety of chickens from free run and free range to specific breeds such as the Silkie or Taiwanese chicken. The BC Chicken Growers' Association was founded in 1957 as a nonprofit organization to unite commercial chicken growers in B.C.

John Urquhart: A cattle breeder with a varied career

Grant Ullyot

West Coast Farmer John Urquhart is a wellknown, and long time breeder of Aberdeen Angus cattle in Chilliwack. His 60-acre farm which he bought in 1969 can be reached from Evans road. The farmhouse that John helped build is located in a grove of trees and cannot be seen by the passerby. You have to travel over a long 2,000 foot driveway to reach the house and eventually arrive at the barn that houses the cattle. John has been operating his cattle farm since 1973, the day he retired from service with the RCMP. John said the reason he retired from the RCMP was because his late wife Betty was very involved in the formation of Fraser Valley College at that time, in addition to being a cocoordinator of a Night School program at Chilliwack Senior Secondary. So while she worked tirelessly on the college project, John went back to raising cattle and helping look after his family. He once had a herd of close to 60 cows, but today he has only 35.  “I basically farm by myself now, but I do have a part time helper,” he noted. John considers Aberdeen

Angus cattle to be the supreme beef cattle. They were developed in the early part of the 13th century from the polled and predominately black cattle of northeast Scotland. Angus cattle as they became known are naturally polled (no dehorning is required) and can be black or red. However black is by far the predominant color. It is the most popular breed of cattle in the United States. Angus cattle are adaptable to all weather conditions. The breed has superior feed conversion and Angus cross are among the most efficient providing higher net returns on investment.

John says his cattle are too good to eat. “I sell my cattle mainly to other ranchers in Alberta and a lot of bulls to ranchers in the interior. Every spring I take a group of animals up to the big Williams Lake sale.”    Prior to becoming a cattle breeder John was a member of the RCMP for 25 years. He joined the force right off the farm in Manitoba. “It was the right thing for a farm boy to do,” stated John. He first went through basic police training at the RCMP depot in Regina. His first posting out of training was to Ottawa, where his love

of horses cultivated back on the family farm resulted in his being assigned to be part of world renowned RCMP Musical Ride. For a year he travelled with the ride which took him to major cities along the U.S west coast It was New Years Day 1953 when John was transferred from Ottawa to Kamloops detachment, the start of his career in BC. He spent three years in Kamloops, then three years in Vernon, followed by six more years in Kelowna. Then came a major move to Nanaimo where he was put in charge of the highway patrol. Finally he was transferred to Chilliwack to become the NCO

in charge of traffic enforcement, which at the time covered the area from Langley to Penticton, until his retirement in 1973.   In 1980 he accepted an appointment to become the Chilliwack Coroner, and soon after became District Coroner covering the area from Abbotsford-Mission to Boston Bar and up the Hope-Princeton highway to the summit. He held the position for the next 14 years. Then in 1994 his wife Betty was diagnosed with cancer and died a year later. That’s when John stopped working off the farm and concentrated on being a rancher again.   In addition to being a long time member of the AberdeenAngus Breeders Association, John is also a charter member of the Chilliwack-Fraser Rotary Club. He says he has always liked working and associating with people. He enjoys barbershop singing, and loves to travel. John was remarried in 1999 to his current wife Barbara.    “I have had a wonderful long life so far with a few health problems that I’ve overcome and I am raring to go. I am enjoying my life; raising top quality cattle and looking forward to many more years.”

nologies have also proven to be powerful economic development engines that provide significant community and regional economic development benefits in the form of local investment and highquality job opportunities. The 2013 Agri-energy Forum provided an invaluable opportunity to bring together individuals from across the agricultural sector, government and private industry to learn about the benefits, feasibility, suitability, opportunities and outcomes of research into renewable agri-energy and co-product development technologies suitable for agricultural producers in BC. Presentations during the 2013 Agri-energy Forum included those on anaerobic digestion policy development in Washington state, the feasibility of small-scale wind and micro-hydro in BC, recent pyrolysis, biochar and duckweed cultivation research, and the installation of a biomass boiler carbon recycling project at a BC greenhouse. In total, over 120 individuals attended the 2013 Agrienergy Forum a the annual Pacific Agriculture Show. Of these, it is estimated that at least 50% were agricultural producers from a variety of industries, including dairy, poultry, greenhouse, beef and tree fruits in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Okanagan and Northern BC.

Local breeders earn top Holstein honours Grant Ullyot

West Coast Farmer

Mark Ricka and his Brooknook Farms in Chilliwack have earned Master Breeder. Rudy and Trudy Russenberger, of Alpina Dairy Farm Ltd. in Abbotsford, have been awarded Holstein Canada’s Master Breeders Award.

Holstein Canada phoned to advise the Russenbergers that they had been selected to be a Master Breeder a second time. Russenberger has a herd of about 150 cows, of which approximately 120 are milked twice a day using a Westfalia-Surge double-ten parallel parlour. He said at the time he installed his new parlour (7 years ago) he considered the idea of installing robots. However, they were pretty new in BC at the time, so he decided to install the parallel parlour. “It has served us well,” says

Russenberger. “We love it.” Russenberger’s herd in 1998 was smaller than the one he has today by about 30 cows. Russenberger has been involved in dairy farming for over 50 years. Born in Vancouver General hospital in 1960 Rudy lived on the family farm in Greendale for about six years before the family moved to their current farm on Lamson Road in Abbotsford. “So I basically grew up on this farm. In 1992 my wife Trudy and I bought my Mum and Dad out. So this is now a second generation

Alpina Dairy Farm Ltd, Rudy and Trudy Russenberger’s farm on Sumas Prairie, in Abbotsford BC has been awarded Holstein Canada’s Master Breeders Award for a second time. Russenberger was among 21 Master Breeder recipients this year, seven of which were repeat winners. Russenberger was also named a Master Breeder in 1998. Asked if winning for a second time was more rewarding than the first, Russenberger replied, “I think it is an affirmation of being able to do what we want to do and that is to breed the best cows possible. To qualify for a Master Breeder designation, Russenberger had to register his purebred herd with Holstein Canada which then tracked the results of his breeding program. “It is a whole combination of things that go into the decision that leads to a Master Breeder Shield being awarded. You must prove your ability to create the complete package, a herd of cows that combines high production, superior conformation and longevity” says Russenberger. “Holstein Canada keeps track of everything and it certainly makes it a lot easier for us.” It was January 12, 2013 when

hoping to be named a Master Breeder soon, but was surprised to learn that he had been selected this year. “I was hoping to get one soon,” he says. “I have taken care of breeding on the farm for the past 12 years.” The family has been on this farm since 1947. “My grandfather came to Canada from India in 1896. He started farming in 1915 with a herd of Guernsey on a farm that was located on land now occupied by Agropur’s dairy plant in Chilliwack. We switched to Holsteins in the nineteen-seventies and have been milking and raising Holsteins ever since. Being named a Master Breeder requires a lot of patience and perseverance,” says Ricka. “You have to register your herd, breed cows that have very good milk production – lots of high components like fat in their milk and good protein and they have to score well in confirmation – they have to look good. It really is a combination of production and confirmation in order to get this award. You also have to be on the DHI (Dairy Herd Improvement) program which gives the Holstein Association the information it needs to determine eligibility for an award.”

The hidden side of sustainability When people think of a clean environment they think of air and water. But what lies beneath isn’t just soil for crops. The ground itself plays a vital role in generating a clean, healthy and productive environment optimized for agriculture. Rainwater filters through the thin layers of soil and vegetation on top and trickles down through the geologic layers of sand, gravel and rocks to the underground network of aquifers, lakes, and streams. In the process, the water is cleansed and purified into safe, clean drinking water which is also a source for irrigation and water for livestock. According to Henry Lin, professor of hydropedology and soil hydrology with Penn State University, understanding the components that make up the integral parts of the soil ecosystem and the layering of the bedrock beneath can lead to better groundwater management and smarter environmental and agricultural policy. Soil health determines its ability to sustain plant and animal productivity and diversity, maintain water and air quality, and support human health. It is a living, dynamic and changing environment profiled by its own biological, chemical and physical properties. But soils health can easily be overlooked. “We look at nature and we see all the beauty and all the prosperity around us," said Lin. “But most people don't know or tend to forget that the key to sustainability is right underground.” Lin reported his research in February at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston. He said that Earth's outer layer from the top vegetation canopy to the strata of soils and layers of underground material

helps soak up and purify water by extracting excess nutrients, heavy metals and other impurities. The ground becomes a storage container for freshwater. About 60 per cent of the world's annual precipitation ends up in this zone. "In fact, there is more water under the ground than there is in the so-called blue waters such as lakes and rivers,” said Lin. Rainwater that falls on Margaret rivers, lakes, Evans and that seeps into the ground is known as “blue water”. This is the water source used for domestic, industrial, and irrigation purposes and it constitutes 30-35 per cent of water in the hydrological cycle. “Green water” is the amount of rainfall that is absorbed by vegetation. When vegetation expires that moisture back into the atmosphere the evapotranspiration process is known as “white water”. The green water process represents some 65 per cent of the absorption of rainwater and includes the water source for rainfed agricultural crops. Besides using freshwater for drinking, people use large amounts of water to irrigate agricultural fields and as part of industrial operations. Lin said that just as a global green revolution raised awareness about food security, a blue revolution may lead to efforts around water security. In the face of global warming and predicted changes in rainfall patterns, access to adequate

and safe water is going to become critical around the globe. Rainwater is an ever increasing valuable commodity. On the west coast, we are blessed with an abundance of it but elsewhere in the world it is increasingly scarce. Climate change could lead to rainfall patterns to the extent that conflicts over water could replace all other territorial disputes in the future. “Without water there is no life," Lin said. “Without groundwater, there is no clean water.” Lin said that the groundwater system in many regions of the world is currently under threat from poor land management practices that fail to consider how groundwater is affected by land uses such as new building projects, underground storage, and agricultural operations. Planners should consider, for example, how the ground and plants in an area can affect water run-off. In some cases, not taking the ground and underground features of an area into consideration can lead to flooding or to the addition of impurities into drinking water supplies. Besides reaching out to managers and planners, Lin said that the general public also must become more aware of groundwater management issues. “In a lot of cases, for the general public and even people from government agencies and funding agencies, it's out of sight, out of mind," Lin said. “But, beneath the surface lies the foundation of our sustainability.”

AgriStability 2012 Interim Application

Ground-breaking discovery of new kind of antibiotic resistance Kelly Thoreson

Special to West Coast Farmer It’s a known fact that a bacteria population that has been exposed to antibiotics for long periods of time can evolve to protect itself by either modifying the antibiotic compound or expelling residues faster than they come in. A team of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) scientists from London (ON), in collaboration with colleagues from France, recently discovered a soil bacterium that found a new way of protecting itself – and the environment, from a commonly used veterinary antibiotic, sulfamethazine (SMZ). The newly discovered bacterium breaks down SMZ and uses it as food, which helps limit the drug’s impact on the environment. Motivated by concerns about antibiotic-resistant bacteria, AAFC scientist

Dr. Ed Topp and his team started their experiments on AAFC research plots more than 14 years ago. The team repeatedly treated plots with a mixture of three common veterinary antibiotics used to promote livestock growth and health – SMZ, tylosin, and chlortetracycline – and monitored how long-term exposure affected soil bacteria populations. Previous research indicating that pesticides often break down more quickly in soils with a long history of exposure prompted Dr. Topp’s team to compare antibiotic persistence in untreated soil and soil from their treated plots. The team was surprised to discover that antibiotics were disappearing much faster from soil that was treated with antibiotics over long periods than from the untreated soil. In particular, SMZ was removed from the soil as much as five times faster in the historically treated soil. The culprit

was singled out as a new strain of Microbacterium, an actinomycete that has adjusted to long-term exposure by learning to break down SMZ and using it as a food source. Actinomycetes are extremely common in soils and known to degrade a wide range of organic compounds, but this is the first strain known to break down an antibiotic to feed itself. Dr. Topp’s research could significantly change the current understanding of our environment and antibiotic resistance.  These findings suggest that under conditions of long-term exposure to antibiotics, bacteria can evolve to break them down, use them as a food source, and help reduce the amount of time that the environment is exposed to these drugs. Research is ongoing to determine if long-term exposure to antibiotics puts pressure on the soil bacteria to evolve and be resistant to these antibiotics.

Use spare farm land to grow food, says study Alina Konevski Black Press

A university researcher is recruiting every municipality from Vancouver to Hope to create a regional food system. The City of Chilliwack is not participating, because of a belief that most agricultural lands are well used here. Southwestern B.C. has many hectares of underutilized agricultural land that is a billion-dollar missed opportunity, according to Kent Mullinix, a director at Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Institute for Sustainable Horticulture. "I know that there is significant income to be generated for our local regional economy, and many many jobs to be created, and many many small- and medium-sized businesses that will emerge from developing a substantial regionalized food system," says Mullinix. A few years ago, his research team discovered that approximately 15 per cent of Surrey's agricultural land reserve is underutilized, and could be put into production. Were it farmed, it could create hundreds of jobs, and double Surrey's agricultural revenue. Mullinix has now set out to design a "road map" for farmers, consumers, entrepreneurs, and governments to follow in the effort towards regional food self-reliance, a three-year project that has already raised $1.1 million of its $1.4 million goal. Abbotsford, Langley, Maple Ridge, and Vancouver, have all signed on, and the University of Fraser Valley is one of six institutions leading the research.

Mullinix pitched the concept to the City of Chilliwack in late 2012, and requested a city project liaison and a $12,000 contribution. Although Mayor Sharon Gaetz says she was "very excited" about the initiative, she doesn't believe it would be a significant benefit to Chilliwack. "For the city of Chilliwack, it's not a big deal. Our cupboards are full. We have a lot of food lands here," says Gaetz. The problem, Gaetz says, is restricted to lands further west, where industrial development has taken over a large share of arable land. "Now they're scrambling looking for food lands." Two-thirds of Chilliwack's land lies in the agricultural land reserve. But people purchasing a piece are under no obligation to farm it. The result is that only 60% of the 16,982 hectares that make up Chilliwack's ALR land have farm class, according to BC Assessment. Another 2,000 or so hectares of agricultural land in the city are deemed "vacant." ALR land that doesn't meet its agricultural potential is well suited to creating a labourintensive, local regional complementary food system, that reduces the region's food imports and creates jobs, says Mullinix. The biggest obstacle he is having is people seeing the potential beyond a transnational commodity food market. But another big, practical challenge is finding people willing to work the land.

Federal government orders independent review of XL Foods Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz says the review is part of the government’s ongoing commitment to ensure that Canadians continue to have one of the safest food safety systems in the world. “We take the safety of Canada’s food supply very seriously, and we remain committed to the continuous improvement of Canada’s strong food safety systems that allow Canadian consumers to shop with confidence. I look forward to receiving the Panel’s report so that its recommendations can be reviewed and made public,” says Ritz. Canada’s food safety system remains among the best in the world, but events such as the XL Foods Inc. beef recall that occurred in September and October of 2012 underscore the importance of ongoing review and continuous improvement. As a result, the Government of Canada has appointed an Independent Expert Advisory Panel to conduct a review of events and circumstances related to the XL Foods Inc. E. coli O157:H7 investigation and recall. The review team includes recognized scientific, public health, and industry experts. The team consists of Dr.  Ronald  Lewis (Chair), Dr.  Ronald  Usborne, and Dr. André Corriveau. The review will examine the events, circumstances, and factors that contributed to the E.  coli outbreak

in XL Foods Inc. products, including the design, implementation, and oversight of food safety preventative control programs, inspection policies and protocols, and information exchange between the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and its food safety system partners, includ­ing XL Foods Inc. and foreign regulators. It will also consider whether the Canadian Food Inspection Agency or XL Foods Inc. could rea­ sonably have detected the contamination prior to beef products entering into distribution and commerce; and review the effectiveness of the response of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, in light of the additional resources provided to it since 2006 by the Government of Canada, in conjunction with the response of its food safety system partners, including XL Foods Inc. and foreign regulators, to the E. coli outbreak, including but not limited to the effectiveness of their prevention, detection, recall response, incident management, and investigative activities, as well as their collaboration and communication with one another, the public, and stakeholders for the purpose of ensuring consumer safety. Based on the findings and conclusions, the team will make recommendations, within the existing resources of the Cana­ dian Food Inspection Agency, to strengthen prevention strategies and regulatory oversight.

More growers take part in Immune Trees project Compiled by Peter Andres BC Hazelnut Growers Association President Peter Andres from Agassiz says new things are happening in the industry - primarily with the Immune Trees project. “We now have participation from Hornby Island, Chilliwack, and Agassiz. Those who planted trees are: Charlotte Spencer from Hornby, Helmut Hooge, Walter Esau, Pentti Hanninen, Neal teBrink, and Peter Andres. It is good that other BC geographic areas are included in the project. The BCHGA has also funded 5 trees to be grown in the Southern Interior at Rock Creek. The aim is to see if these trees will grow in colder interior climates. Although growth is not as prolific, it has been reported that these trees are growing. We need to see if they survive the past winter,” notes Andres. Funding from the Investment Agriculture Foundation has again been received for  2012. Levies on the other hand are down a lot because of the drop in production – severe for some growers and

for others it was similar to the previous low crop. The same levy charge as in previous years (half cent per lb) applies to the 2012 crop. We need every grower to continue to remit their half-cent per pound of production through a processor or by direct cheque to the BCHGA. We need to show that we use it for our share of funding for the Variety Trials Project. For those who have not had their 2012 crop levy deducted (mostly those crops going to the USA), please remit your levy cheque at the AGM or send it to Peter Andres,1611 Tranmer Rd, Agassiz, BC, V0M 1A2. Hopefully all growers will attend the AGM planned for Wednesday, April 9th to get the latest information on the severity of the eastern filbert blight infection and what to do about it. The Annual General Meeting   of the BC Hazelnut Grower’s  Association will be held on Tuesday April 9th , 2013 at the BC Ministry of Agriculture 1767 Angus Campbell Road (The Red Barn) in Abbotsford.
