Cash Mob draws 1,500 Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

The Cash Mob Chilliwack event on Friday at two Indian restaurants in Chilliwack exceeded everyone’s expectations. Hundreds of people showed solid support all day long by dining or ordering take-out from either the Bay Leaf or Shandhar Hut restaurants in Chilliwack, to cool the sting of racist messages sent to owners last week. “It boggled my mind when we got the final numbers in. We had no idea it would be that successful,” said Scott McVetty, one of the Cash Mob Chilliwack organizers. Restaurant owners told him they more than doubled totals of their best day to date. “We are extending our thanks to the community,” McVetty said. “It was a lot of hard work and it turned out to be a great day.” Cash Mob organizers wanted to send the message that the anonymous racist does not represent the community of Chilliwack. “Actions speak louder than words, and Chilliwack was loud and clear on this night,” said McVetty. “Chilliwack, you’ve truly outdone yourself,” said Dale Johnson, Cash Mob Chilliwack organizer. “That number is simply amazing and way beyond anything we could have hoped for.” The Atti family from Shandhar Hut expressed their feelings about the support on their Facebook page. “There aren’t any words to express the amount of gratitude we have for those supporting us Continued: SUPPORT/ p21

Chlorine tap turned on – permanently Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

When health officials made Chilliwack turn on its emergency chlorination system last week it was only “until further notice.” On Thursday, it became permanent. Fraser Health has told the City of Chilliwack that if it wants to retain its permit to supply water to residents it must chlorinate its water – permanently. The move will add an additional three per cent to the average water bill, the city said.

“Council is extremely disappointed to hear this news, but we have no option but to comply with the Fraser Health Authority mandate,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz. She thanked the “thousands” of residents who made their voices heard and fought for Chilliwack’s water, and said although they had their challenges with the water file, they hope to work with FHA to fight Metro’s incineration plans. But some won’t be happy. “I know this news will initially be difficult for many to accept,” said Gaetz. A total of 4,470 people signed

the online petition at www.chilliwackwater.com. The preliminary investigation by the city did not find a cause of the E.coli in Greendale last week. Fraser Health has issued formal notice under the Drinking Water Protection Act that as of March 7, a secondary disinfectant is required to be injected into Chilliwack’s drinking water system, effective immediately. Dr. Paul Van Buynder, Chief Medical Health Officer and VicePresident Public Health for Fraser Health said there was no other option.

“Over the years, Chilliwack’s water system has been compromised on many occasions resulting in fecal coliform and E. coli bacteria entering the distribution system,” Van Buynder said in a statement released Thursday. “After a review of the relevant data and conversations with public works staff at the City of Chilliwack, it is my assessment that ongoing secondary disinfection of the water supply system with chlorine or an equivalent compound is necessary to ensure a safe drinking water supply.” Continued: WATER/ p7

Staff, students sing praise of new Yarrow school Alina Konevski The Progress

The stunning new Yarrow Community School held its official opening last Friday, to a full house of community supporters. “We feel very fortunate here at Yarrow to be in this building,” said principal Nathan Ngieng. “It’s really been one-of-a-kind for an elementary school. It really enhances what we’re already doing here.”

About 150 people from the school administration, parents, and alumni, came out on Friday to see the sloping roof and red and grey exterior of the new building, components that only hint at the ultramodern features. Stepping inside, gorgeous exposed B. C. wood beams draw your eyes upward, where sunlight rushes through the floor-toroof windows.

The new school also sits about 10 feet higher as a precaution against potential floods. The open spaces and natural light are an immediate morale-booster. “I just love all the natural light coming in,” says Tomasi. “The old building was dark and hard to focus. It

was dusty,” adds 10-year-old Nicholas Voth. The new building looks spotless, and it is hard to picture a dust particle daring to settle amidst all the light. Tomasi and Voth’s favourite spaces are the library and gym. The openness of the former gives librarians much more room to work, says Tomasi. For Voth, the gym’s new scoreboard and wooden slates on the walls give a professional appearance. Continued: Yarrow/ p21

Anti-chlorination advocate to run for Green Party in Chilliwack Alina Konevski The Progress

Chilliwack Museum and Archives director, Ron Denman (right) and heritage collections manager, Paul Ferguson, are getting ready to open a new exhibit at the museum called May Health, Peace, and Contentment be Yours.

New museum exhibit won’t hurt a bit Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Curator Paul Ferguson describes the new exhibit at the Chilliwack Museum as a thoughtful look at life — from birth to death. “It’s meant to be personal,” he said. The name of the show, May Health, Peace and Contentment be Yours, actually dates back to 1926, as the theme of the annual promotional calendar given to Chilliwack customers from the Hipwell Drugstore. The health exhibit at the Chilliwack Museum opens on

Friday, March 15, with everything from information on germ theory, or stitches, to the use of mercurochrome. There’s plenty to pore over. Everyone can relate to going to see doctors, dentists, chiropractors and other health professionals. Historical objects, artifacts and accompanying texts will provide insight into some of the medical advances made over the last 150 years. The objects are pulled from the museum’s substantial collection, said Ferguson, who is the Heritage Records Manager. Many of the items selected have been in the collection for years but

have never been displayed — or at least not in a medical context. One such example is the A.C. Wells’ tooth extractor forceps which dates back to the 1860s and is considered one of the oldest objects in their collection. Wells arrived in Chilliwack in 1866 and was known as the person to see if a tooth had to be pulled. It wasn’t until the arrival of Dr. J.C. Henderson in 1887, and Dr. William Vaughn Davies, Chilliwack’s first dentist who came in 1906 that Chilliwack had any professionally trained health professionals. Even the City’s first surgeon, Dr. Albert Phelps, was a latecomer, beginning his practice

in 1954. The museum, Ferguson noted, has objects owned or associated with some of these individuals. “One of the things I found in doing the research was that a lot of people were willing to help out, and offered to lend us items for this exhibit,” Ferguson said. A video portion of the exhibit includes interviews with Dr. Archie Young and Dr. Henry Pauls who was Chilliwack’s second resident surgeon. The exhibit opens at 1 p.m. on March 15 and stays in place for the remainder of the year. For more details call 604-795-5210. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

One of the driving forces of the antichlorination movement is now running for the Green Party of BC in the Chilliwack riding in the May election, after what she feels is a “railroading” by Fraser Health of the local community voice. Photographer and activist Kim Reimer has thrown her name into the ring just days after Chilliwack pumped its water system full of chlorine, to be on indefinitely, despite intense opposition. “There’s a lot of dissatisfied people in the community, obviously spurred on by the chlorination, feeling like they don’t have a voice, there’s no Kim Reimer democratic process. I want to be that voice for people,” says Reimer. Reimer started the ultra successful www.chilliwackwater.com website and petition, which has so far received 4,470 signatures. Her activism with chlorination has gone beyond not wanting her family to drink chlorinated water. “It evolved into how we were railroaded with this decision by Fraser Health and that the people of the city had absolutely no say over the matter,” she says. In terms of political experience, Reimer has “none at all,” but never planned to go into political office before this. “I never thought it for myself,” she says. But she loves a challenge, recognizes she has a lot to learn, and believes she has already demonstrated her commitment to this community. “I’ve shown I’m really willing to get up and stand up for the people of Chilliwack.

Charged laid after money goes missing from RCMP A former City of Chilliwack employee has been charged in connection with the disappearance of nearly $40,000 in cash and cheques from the RCMP’s main exhibit room. Police were conducting a routine exhibit audit of the Chilliwack main exhibit room in August of 2011, when the learned a sum of money was missing. “When the audit revealed a discrepancy, we immediately launched an investigation and imposed greater restrictions to

the exhibit room, reducing the number of people with access to the room, changing locks and combinations,” said Inspector Grant Wilson, Acting Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment. The subsequent investigation revealed that approximately $37,000 in Canadian currency, $46 in American currency and nearly $4,000 in Government of Canada cheques were missing in relation to 19 separate files. Jamie Tiller, age 36, of

Chilliwack, has been charged with theft over $5,000. She was arrested on March 5, and has since been released. Her next court appearance is on March 19. “The allegations are disappointing, and of course very concerning to us,” said Wilson. “Since this investigation began, Chilliwack RCMP has taken a number of steps to improve the handling of exhibits, processes and procedures.”

A Chilliwack man was left on the sidewalk with a broken leg and head injuries after a hitand-run driver mowed him down on Williams Street early Saturday morning. The 37-year-old man was walking westbound on the west side of Williams with another man at about 12:15 a.m. when he was hit. The vehicle – believed to be a light blue Toyota car – crossed into the oncoming lane and jumped the curb before hitting the man. It then fled the scene, driving east on Portage Avenue towards Menzies Avenue. “This accident could have been a lot more serious than it was,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “We are hopeful that someone knows something that can help us locate the driver of the vehicle.” Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604 792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

FHA orders water chlorination He said an investigation of the Chilliwack water system underlined Fraser Health’s concern that contamination could continue. “The information provided [by the City of Chilliwack] confirmed vulnerabilities in the system including a number of residences with dual systems and without backflow prevention. These potential pathways by which pathogens can enter the distribution system was the reason for the initial concerns of Fraser Health.” Fraser Health has  issued a minimum target for residual disinfection at the tap of 0.2 mg/L of chlorine. Planning for the water system upgrade from standby to permanent is underway. The estimated cost of $1.5 million for the upgrade means staff will seeking grants the city can apply

Voting on science

The recent controversy surrounding the chlorination of Chilliwack water elicited passions rarely seen in civic affairs. And while the level of engagement is impressive, it has also sparked the curious notion that issues of public health should be decided by majority vote. Democracy is a wonderful thing when public policy is being set, consensus sought, or legislation created. But it fails when applied to science. One of the recurring themes emerging from the chlorination debate was the lack of input from Chilliwack residents. Even the city’s own elected representatives were unable to influence the edict laid down by the bureaucrats within Fraser Health. But that’s how it should be. The outcome may not have been what many wanted, but the process was based on scientific analysis, not popular opinion. Fraser Health concluded – through investigation – that there was a high probability that public health was at risk; that without the addition of chlorine to the water supply a serious E.coli contamination would occur.

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

That conclusion can be challenged by examining the data and questioning Fraser Health’s methods, but it can’t be overturned simply because a vociferous group – regardless of how well-intentioned – feels it did not have a say in the outcome. Because where would it end? Should decisions on immunization, for example, be decided by science, or celebrity endorsement? Should action on climate change be based on the vote of a sometimes skeptical public, or the evidence that points to its reality? Already some would suggest there is too much political interference in science, whether it’s in politicians influencing classroom content, or governments preventing disclosure of scientific findings that conflict with their own agenda. The consequences of an E.coli outbreak are potentially deadly. And while we may choose our own personal risks, we don’t have right to ignore the science and extend that risk to the young and the elderly in our community – simply on the strength of a majority vote. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

No easy task ahead for the next pope

This morning in Vatican City, 115 cardinals entered the historic Sistine Chapel to go into conclave and elect a new pope. After the shocker on February 11th when 85-year-old Pope Benedict announced he was resigning due to “lack of strength of mind and body”, the papal city has been buzzing with preparations, speculations as to who the next pope will be, and what he will stand for. Benedict was no spring chicken when elected in 2005 as the 265th pope to lead the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. He was 78 years old, which made him the oldest man in 275 years to be elected. He was the first pope to step aside in 600 years, the last being Pope Gregory Xll who resigned in 1415 to settle a threatened split in the church. Few institutions are as steeped

in tradition as the Catholic Church. Its rituals pre-date anything in modern times. The first pope, also known as the Bishop of Rome, was St. Peter, one of Christ’s Apostles (AD 33-64). The recognized longest serving pope was Pius 1X (18461878) who served for almost 32 Margaret years. Among the carEVANS dinals today are three Canadian bishops including front-runner Quebec Cardinal Marc Ouellet. He is the prefect of the Congregation of Bishops and worked closely with Pope Benedict. The Sistine Chapel was named after Pope Sixtus 1V who com-

missioned it and conducted the first mass in the finished building in 1483. The chapel has the same dimensions as the Temple of Solomon on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. It may be plain on the outside but inside are Botticelli’s frescos on the walls and Michelangelo’s masterpiece on the ceiling. But before those Old Testament images were crafted, the vaulted ceiling was painted blue with gold stars depicting the night sky by artist Piero Matteo d’Amelia. When Michelangelo got to work, he painted the ceiling standing on a platform (no, he didn’t lie on his back as myths claim) and the project took from 1508 to 1512. Once the cardinals had sworn an oath of secrecy and entered the Chapel, the doors were locked. This action is where the word “conclave” comes from,

being Latin cum clave, or “closed with key”. Time is of the essence. Taking too long is what started conclave in the first place. In 1268 the College of Cardinals (of which there were only 20) met in the village of Viterbo north of Rome to elect a pope following the death of Pope Clement 1V. They bickered for three years and three of them died in the process. Finally the villagers got so frustrated they locked them in the episcopal palace and reduced their diet to bread and water. When Pope Gregory X emerged victorious in 1271 he promptly institutionalized conclave having learned from that grim experience that a lock-up gets results. The cardinals will begin casting ballots this evening and voting continues four times daily until a two-thirds plus one major-

ity (77 votes) decides the new pope. After each vote, the ballots are burned in a specially installed stove and chimney. Black smoke (the burned ballots, wet straw and added chemicals) is the signal to the outside world that there’s no pope yet while white smoke (the burned ballots) signals one has been chosen. The new pope faces huge challenges for the church. While Pope Benedict apologized for the Catholic Church’s cover up of sexual abuse scandals many people felt that the apology fell short. The Vatileaks, when the pope’s butler leaked documents to a journalist revealing high level corruption, didn’t help the church’s image either. And then there’s the issue of women’s equality. The next pope will have his work cut out for him.

Re: Chilliwack keeps its taxes low (Chilliwack Progress, March 7). The mayor – or any city politician – couldn’t have written it better however the article did not come up with any reason for paying less – or less of an increase – than neighbouring municipalities. For instance, given the nature of the tax base and the spread-out nature of the whole area, I would imagine Chilliwack has many more housing units than many of the surrounding towns/cities.  And, it is questionable whether we

have the roads or heavy traffic that other more urban areas have. I wonder how many residents would trade their location if their very residence were magically located to Abbotsford, where you might pay a bit more for taxes however, look at the facilities that are more immediately available.  An International airport, border crossing, large shopping areas and even the ever-popular Costco etc., etc.  Even pollution levels might be lower in a closer-to-the-ocean location.   In fact, the location compari-

son might be something similar to driving a Lincoln Continental and a KIA. But there is one thing that hasn’t really changed except for a never-ending upward trend: the wages and benefits we pay our city staff and particularly the executives.  Although there may be a slightly fewer number of employees in Chilliwack, the amounts are comparable to any I have seen even in much larger centres.  In fact, sometimes higher.

E X P E R T

coughs and sputters to drive on.  In B.C., we have the best stuff, but most of us can’t afford to use it.   Your presentation of the tax rate increases in the valley works to sway the argument that we are experiencing low taxes.  The actual facts are that we pay very high taxes compared to what my budget can afford.  I believe the outrage of those who do not want our water chlorinated will soon move to demand that Chilliwack’s taxes change their yearly upward direction. Gary Raddysh Chilliwack

The chlorination battle is not over yet The argument in favour of chlorination: a purportedly fool-proof method of ensuring contaminantfree drinking water at the tap.  But at what cost?  We are required to consume low-level quantities of a potent oxidant – chlorine attacks organic matter indiscriminately, and cumulatively the effects on the human body must be quite profound. Living with diverse levels of “risk” is a fact of life, has always been so.  Merely crossing the street introduces risk, but we do not expect it to be made fool-proof

– only that reasonable precautions are exercised (in street design and in pedestrian behaviour).  While the consequences of an accident are wide, it is mitigated by the relative likelihood.  Reasonable and not extreme caution is sufficient, a balance is kept. Chlorination, not based on conclusive proof of its long-term health safety, falls far short of a  balanced approach.  The City of Chilliwack, blessed with an natural water source of extremely high purity, has developed a water distribution system that produces an

equally high level of water safety at the tap.  City administrators have done a stellar job of informing the public, and has its trust.  An informed public, knowledgeable of the facts in the matter, would likely accept the tiny margin of risk involved in turning on the tap.  It has done so for decades, without relevant incident.  The fight is not lost, because it hasn’t yet been waged.  I don’t intend to take this lying down.  Do you?

  I must also comment on the grand vision that our elected public servants, in all levels of government, operate.  My money is paying for a highway to the Whistler Ski Resort that I cannot afford to visit.  My money is paying for the Golden Ears Bridge and the Port Mann Bridge that I avoid to save money. My money is paying for the roof on BC Place, in which I cannot afford to attend a game or a show.  And, as I drive from Chilliwack to Vancouver, I feel that I could never pay enough taxes to cover the cost of the grandiose infrastructure that my lowly 1991 vehicle apologetically

Canada, but they made a step skyward in January.  It’s going to cost us to keep our drinking water safe.  And, 3.44 per cent increase is a major tax hike that will affect the family budgets of all Chilliwack residents.  And, this increase will be back again next year, and the year after that.  Through all the good economic times our taxes increased, now in slow times I have asked that we keep the current tax rate for two years in a row. West Vancouver did.  For the last two years they have budgeted no tax increase. Perhaps in Chilliwack we could enjoy it for “several years running.”

Tax increase is nothing to celebrate I object to the celebratory tone with which your article declares Chilliwack’s city tax increase as a wonderful event that we have enjoyed for “several years running.”  Each year I request city council to consider a zero per cent tax increase, and it is becoming increasingly more urgent that they do so now. The over-riding economic climate of our province is still one of economic slow down.  Gas prices, at a time when crude oil is so cheap, are astronomical.  Food prices are working to keep up to the cost of petrol. B.C. income taxes may be the lowest in

RCMP Pacific Regional Training Centre has a 25-year plan for its properties at the Chilliwack Education Park. Part of it includes the acquisition of 2.2 acres at the corner of Calais Crescent and Dieppe Street, that will eventually be used for academic and administrative office purposes. Right now it’s a triangular shaped vacant lot owned by trustee City of Chilliwack, with Chilliwack Economic Partners Corp. listed as “beneficial owner,” according to disposition documents, meaning it stands

to receive all proceeds from the sale of the property. “We’re positioning ourself for future growth,” said Ken Burton, officer in charge of support services for the PRTC, in an interview with the Progress. “We’re here for the long term.” That piece of property will be added to the number of spaces and properties from which the PRTC conducts training and upgrading for thousands of RCMP officers every year, and other policing agencies from across Canada. The assets include everything from a firearms range, conference facilities, to a driving track, as well as a offices and classrooms.

“We are quite spread out,” said Burton. “The acquisition is part of a 25-year plan at the PRTC to as opportunities arise, to consolidate our property holdings.” The idea is to gradually reduce their rental spaces with acquisitions. The synergy between partners at the education park to date has been “exceptional,” he added. Some of the training centre’s buildings are on the UFV side of the Canada Education Park, while others are closer to Peach Road, but all are generally within the confines of the education park. “It’s an investment in the community,” said Burton.

A Chilliwack RCMP dive team was searching the Fraser River Monday morning after a Ford F150 truck was pulled from the water after it smashed through a concrete barrier at McDonald Road and Ballam Road late Sunday night. A 36-year-old woman was been pronounced dead at the scene. However, police wanted to know if anyone was with her when the truck went into the river. The incident occurred just before midnight. When police arrived they found a concrete barrier pushed over and a power pole sheared off. They quickly determined that a vehicle had gone into the river and after a brief

The RCMP Underwater Recovery Team was called out to the scene and remain on the scene to look for any further victims that may have been in the vehicle. “This was very tragic,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “We are doing everything we can right now to look for any other possible victims. These searches can be very difficult emotionally on emergency workers and we are very hopeful that there are no further victims involved.” The name of the victim is not being released until the investigation is concluded.

A fire that appears to have started in a garage was prevented from spreading to adjacent homes by Chilliwack firefighters Wednesday evening. Crews from three firehalls were called in to battle the blaze, which started at around 5:45 p.m. in the 7000 block of Eden Drive. When firefighters arrived flames and heavy smoke were venting from the roof and garage door. The fire was also starting to extend into the adjacent cedar trees. Firefighters managed to confine the fire before it extended into the house, or the neighbor’s home. There was extensive fire and smoke damage to the attached garage/ workshop area with very minor smoke damage to the house. Two people were

Ombudsperson Kim Carter was in Chilliwack last week, meeting reps from government services, groups and agencies while staff met with the public, on a province-wide tour of communities by the Office of the B.C. Ombudsperson. The office serves the entire province from Victoria offices. “But because we serve the whole province, it’s important that we go out, listen and talk to people,” she said. They effectively open the Ombudsperson’s Office for

a day in the communities they descend on, and they make two or three tours per year. Last week it was visits to Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Richmond and Langley. The Ombudsperson is known as “B.C.’s independent voice for fairness.” And while Carter said she can’t disclose the subject matter, precise concerns, or complaints she heard in Chilliwack last week, she can point to the annual report with a complete list of files opened. “A number of cases are also summarized in the annual report,” she explained to the Progress, but the identities of

the complainants are not disclosed, to maintain confidentiality. Sometimes the office issues a report on a single topic, like drinking water safety, lottery prize payouts, or seniors’ care. They issued a report on Open Meetings: Best Practices Guide for Local Governments last fall. “It’s the beginning of preventative ombudsmenship,” she said. “It’s an initiative rather than waiting for complaints to come in, it provides information and guidelines.” She said the idea is that it might reduce the number of complaints.

For a lot of people that with a venue to humorously “face” the can be very difficult, and makes them disease. rather uncomfortable, but the flip side of that is there’s a great deal of release” says Having lost his father to cancer almost six Horak. years ago and living with the disease since he was a young child, Horak is well Creating a character such as Cancer, aware of the stigma the word Horak knows he runs the risk of being carries in our culture. seen as just making an attempt at tasteless In this remarkable shock value. As a survivor himself, show Bruce he insists otherwise, saying there is a Horak tells message of love and hope that comes his story, not through, giving the audience a chance to as himself examine their feelings on cancer. Perhaps but as an even to laugh at it and rob the disease of amusing its unspoken power. Whatever the gut reaction to the show’s title, audiences over the past four years have agreed with him. This is CANCER, directed by the Canadian Comedy award-winning director/performer Rebecca Northan, has toured to mass acclaim all across Canada, at multiple fringes, with increasing demands for performances. Superb comedic timing and impressive dance moves creates a show that is really more about examining life’s lumps and bumps than it is about getting too serious about the touchy subject. Making fun of Cancer by turning him into a misguided, eccentric figure, Horak adds some mischievous humour, gold lame, and odd bulges to create a smoking, singing, dancing, deluded narcissistic character.

Cancer travels on his own journey of denial, anger, bargaining and acceptance only to discover that the whole world hates him and he doesn’t understand why. This award-winning, one-man, satirical show walks an emotional tightrope as Horak personifies humankind’s most feared disease. This is CANCER will leave you wondering how you could possibly feel sorry for such a deadly performer. It’s completely bizarre, and one of the most rewarding and difficult pieces Horak says he’s ever done. Born from his own struggle facing his fear of living with the disease This is CANCER has the underlying theme of asking you to live - and have a laugh. “For me, personally, it was when I was dealing with my father’s cancer, it was a call to live, to embrace the time you have left,” says Horak. Presented by The Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society on March 19 at 7:30pm, This is CANCER, although tackling a difficult subject, is a theatre performance that is funny, uplifting, charming, and powerful. “The wildest, most thrilling ride you’ll take this season” states The Calgary Herald. This is Cancer is generously sponsored by Simpson Notaries, The Chilliwack Progress, Department of Canadian Heritage and the British Columbia Arts Council.

Bif Naked to receive doctorate from UFV Alex Butler Black Press

Rocker, actress and activist Bif Naked can now add doctor to her list of achievements. Mark Evered, president of the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV), made a surprise announcement that the Vancouver musician will receive an honourary doctorate from the university at convocation in June. Bif Naked had just finished giving a speech about body image and the media, as part of International Women’s Day activities at the Abbotsford campus of UFV, when Evered made the announcement. He said the doctorate is in honour of Bif Naked’s contribution to the arts and her lifechanging work with women. A breast cancer survivor and punk rocker, Bif Naked shared her unique experience as a woman in a male-dominated industry, and a public figure undergoing cancer treatment. Bif Naked said she struggled with her body image while trying to fit in and keep up with the men in the music business, saying it was a struggle to stay empowered as a woman. “I found out they still yelled all the same things that hot little punk-rock boys yell at

girls on a stage… I had to adapt to that.” She kept the crowd laughing as she told the story of her fight against breast cancer, saying she used her humour to get through the difficult time. Bif Naked explained that after being diagnosed with cancer, she joined a clinical trial to test the effect of exercise on the bone density of cancer patients. She bonded with the other women in the trial and said it became something of an accidental support group, developing camaraderie and affection between the women who were all different ages and from diverse backgrounds.

“It really was a study in fellowship and the power women have to heal.” She said going through breast cancer made her think less about her image and just enjoy life. Though, she admitted that women in cancer-treatment often worry about things like losing their hair, which she said is common and understandable. “We’re still chicks,” she laughed. Bif Naked spoke about the importance of women supporting each other. She said there is an unspoken bond between women that needs to be recognized, instead of perpetuating the idea of women as

Morry, who has organized the International Women’s Day activities, was very excited to bring Bif Naked to campus. “She inspires me because of her positive attitude in battling cancer and dealing with a marriage breakup, while still pursuing her love affair with music... Bif Naked presents the image of a very strong woman who has faced some significant setbacks, but keeps getting up again and carrying on.”

Nominees sought for Betty Urquhart Award

Stephen and Sharon Bainbridge must travel from Cultus Lake to Abbotsford three times a week for dialysis treatment. ALINA KONEVSKI/ PROGRESS

Call renewed for Chilliwack dialysis unit Alina Konevski The Progress

Chilliwack residents suffering from kidney disease still do not have hometown access to renal dialysis treatment, despite extensive campaigning and political interest last year. But the Fraser Health Authority confirms that to set up such a unit would be very expensive, and there are simply not enough dialysis patients in Chilliwack to justify the cost. March is Kidney Health Month, and March 14 is World Kidney Day. In British Columbia, over 240,000 people have some form of kidney disease, according to the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Nationally, that’s one in 10. Fraser Health alone has 2,531 kidney care patients within its system. In Chilliwack, 12 residents commute to the Abbotsford community-based dialysis unit for their treatment three times a week, confirms FHA. Another 14 Chilliwack kidney patients reside full-time at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. And an unspecified number are selftreating at home. Fraser Health is not considering opening a community-based dialysis clinic in Chilliwack. The health authority says the patient population is too low, and Chilliwack General Hospital lacks the required supportive services, such as interventional radiology and vascular surgeons. Setting up a renal dialysis clinic in Chilliwack would cost several million dollars, says FHA spokesperson Tasleem Juma. FHA follows a regional approach to dialysis treatment. Valley residents are expected to commute to one of three hospital facilities (in Abbotsford, Surrey, and New Westminster), or to one of five community-based centres (in Abbotsford, New West, Coquitlam, and two in

Surrey). Juma points to the example of Burnaby, which does not have a community-based clinic due to a lack of required services at Burnaby Hospital. But Burnaby patients have a much shorter drive to their nearest clinic in New West. Although some regions use mobile dialysis units, such as Ontario, Fraser Health has none and does not plan to pursue this strategy. Arguably the biggest complaint against dialysis services in the region is that FHA does not assist with transport for outpatients, except in the rarest of circumstances. People who are receiving treatment on an outpatient basis, explains Juma, are considered to be in stable condition, and it is customary for such patients to commute for their procedures. The reality, however, is that many dialysis patients are elderly. While 78-year-old Cultus Lake resident Stephen Bainbridge could drive himself to the treatment, he would be too tired to drive back. For the past four years since his kidneys failed, Stephen’s wife Sharon gets up at 5 a.m. with him every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, to get to the 7 a.m. treatment at Abbotsford General. While Stephen settles in for the 4.5-hour procedure, Sharon kills time by wandering the shops of Abbotsford. It isn’t worth the time and gas to drive back home in the meantime. “Your whole life revolves around this, and you have to adjust,” she says. “It’s a life-altering thing. In the last two months, Sharon’s knee has been acting up, so the couple hired Chilliwack Community Services to take Stephen to his treatments. Because they managed to find someone with whom to share the ride, cost is $30 per day, $390 per month. Regular price for

17

a single passenger is $780 per month. The Bainbridge’s live in an adult-only mobile home park south of town, on their pension and savings. FHA says their income is too high to receive assistance with transport for the treatment. Home hemodialysis is not an option for them. “We’re not professionals. I wouldn’t feel comfortable with this,” says Sharon. “It takes two people to do this. What if one of us got sick?” Last year, Elaina Wugalter rallied community support for opening a clinic in Chilliwack, after a January snowstorm nearly dislocated the city from Abbotsford, and Wugalter and husband Morris — along with patients from Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs — had to risk dangerous roads to get to their dialysis treatments. Wugalter considers the lack of a clinic in Chilliwack unjust, and a safety concern. “There’s elderly people driving up and down the highway going to Abbotsford for dialysis,” she says. Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz and Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony have voiced support for a dialysis unit in Chilliwack. B. C. regional director for the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Lois Wilson, spends March reminding people to reduce their risk of kidney disease by doing “the same little things” of eating right, exercising, and not smoking. Some people are also at higher genetic risk, as are people with high blood pressure and diabetes. “If you belong to one of those groups, then you need to be aware of the signs and symptoms,” says Wilson. These include hypertension, puffy eyes, hands and feet, and abnormal or painful passing of urine. akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/WriteInBC

Do you know an individual or a group who has made the Fraser Valley a better place to live? Those people who make everyday contributions to their community but may not be recognized? Consider nominating them for the Betty Urquhart annual community ser vice award. Betty Urquhart was one of the first employees of Fraser Valley College (now UFV) and believed strongly in the values volunteering and giving back to the community. While Betty passed away in 1995, UFV keeps her memory alive by honouring a person or group who exemplifies her commitment to life-long learning and community. Past winners of the annual Betty Urquhart award include: • Agassiz Centre for Education (ACE) • Chilliwack branch of Pacific Riding for Developing Abilities (PRDA). • Patricia Murakami of Hope for her community work • The Yarrow Volunteer Society in recognition of their ongoing commitment to run the Yarrow community hall • Mission resident Tara Scheirer for her work organizing the Warm Zone, a temporary cold weather homeless shelter • Chilliwack’s Gwen Point for her role in launching the annual Chilliwack Powwow • Elsie Goerzen for the Sardis Doorway program she founded as a drop-in for single mothers, and • Harrison’s Ruth Altendorf for her community work with a senior’s hiking club and music group. The award is presented as part of the university’s annual convocation ceremony in June. Recognizing community volunteers at convocation inspires students to contribute and give back to their communities. It’s all part of UFV’s commitment to changing lives and building community.” If you’d like to nominate someone for the Betty Urquhart community service award, review the criteria and download a nomination form at http://www.ufv. ca/board/bettyurquhartaward/, or contact Lori Ann Waites at 1-888-504-7441 (local 4521) or by email at loriann.waites@ufv.ca . The deadline for this year’s nominations is Friday, March 15.

I’m going to be doing a lot of door-to-door campaigning, and lots of social media and online campaigning,” says Reimer. She received the go-ahead from the provincial party office a few days ago.

Older Dodges disappearing from driveways in Chilliwack RCMP can’t say why but there’s been a rash of thefts of older model Dodge trucks. “Chilliwack has seen an increase in the theft of older model Dodge trucks primarily from the north area of town,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. A total of 17 older model Dodge trucks have been stolen since the beginning of February.  “Of most concern to police is that several of the vehicles have been stolen from residential driveways.” They’re warning Dodge owners to take precautions.

“Its really hard to say why these vehicles are being specifically targeted right now,” said Const. Wolbeck.  “Our

crime analyst made us aware of the numbers and we knew we needed to act on it.” Many of the vehi-

cles have been recovered in the Chilliwack area but were badly damaged and no longer driveable. 

“This comes at a ver y big expense to the vehicle owners,” she said. Tr ucks targeted

recently are from 1995 to 2001.  Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to

contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604 792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Since signing on to the woodworking program at Sardis S.S. two years ago, senior Benjamin Willms is preparing to compete in Skills BC for the second time in cabinetmaking. The challenge lies in “putting pieces together,” as he calls it, according to Skills BC’s basic directions. Last year, competitors received a sheet of pine, and if they did it right, ended up with a sliding top box. In Fraser Valley’s small pool of cabinetmaking champions, Willms won gold. He didn’t place in provincials, but he’s running through the hoops again because the competition looks great on academic and job applications. Similarly, Jamie Stroomer learned how to create electronic architectural drawings through his Sardis S.S. series of computer

Andersen is a strident proponent of his own ACE-IT welding program, which provides him with nearly a full scholarship to attend UFV’s first-year welding course, all the while maintaining his high school senior status. A program that would normally cost about $5,000 is only costing

him $360 in supplies. “It’s a good system. To anyone who’s good with their hands, I recommend the program in a heartbeat.” Andersen hopes to attend BCIT’s heavyduty mechanic program come fall. akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/WriteInBC

Businesses draw strong support Support from Front “There aren’t any words to express the amount of gratitude we have for those supporting us and the IndoCanadian community in general,” they wrote. They acknowledged their supporters and the media “for their unyielding will to take a stand against hate. Thank you everyone.” Winning door prize ticket numbers are available on the Cash Mob Chilliwack Facebook page, for those who haven’t yet claimed their prizes. The event was organized quickly last week after two Chilliwack restaurants were sent the same hate-filled missive,

while Chilliwack Taxi, a third business, was also sent an anonymous email. They all came from someone using the name ‘goldenboynix’ from the untraceable hushmail.com site. The message sent to the restaurants, was from someone who claimed he was “wellconnected” said the owners should “leave” Chilliwack because it didn’t need people from India or Surrey to “pollute” it. The message 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

That’s why we were there as well.”

Mayor Sharon Gaetz showed up at both restaurants. “Friday night was absolutely fabulous,” she said, adding she even met people from Vancouver who felt it was important to show up and support the effort. “I was very proud to be from Chilliwack and see that kind of support.

UFV students back shuttle Alina Konevski The Progress

University of the Fraser Valley students voted in support of hiring a private shuttle bus between Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses. And just in time, as Greyhound reduced its service last week. Preliminary results show that approximately 75 per cent of voting UFV Student Union Society members are in favour of paying $6.75 per year to hire a shuttle bus, tweeted SUS president Shane Potter on Monday. Final ratification will be on Friday. The proposed shuttle would run between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., 10 times per day, and would be open to students, faculty, and staff. On Friday, Chilliwack residents noticed that Greyhound trips between the two cities have been cut. Instead of the past 10 daily trips, there are now five: three in the morning before 9:30 a.m., and two at night after 7 p.m. There is no public bus between the two cities.

Faith and begorrah! It’s spring! Although the Lions kept busy through the winter months, we look forward to outdoor activities. With the warmer weather its time to tune up the bar-b-que, dig out the golf clubs, and enjoy the sunshine while continuing to work to help those in need. Mount Cheam Lions Club Members aid various charity events in their endeavors by providing our portable bar-bque and grill to serve pancake and sausage breakfast or hot dog and hamburger lunches. The Mount Cheam Team works hard to assist those in need. I wonder how many people realize the extent of the service provided by Mount Cheam Lions? I’ve often commented on the various projects of the our club and the people who have benefitted by our efforts, but do they realize how much time is volunteered by our members? For instance in January alone, Mount Cheam Lions put in over 400 volunteer hours. The key word is volunteer because there are no paid members in the Lions Clubs. Many of you are aware of our yearly projects such as our Pub Crawl, Christmas Turkey Draw, and Terry Fox Run to name a few; but do you realize that we have ongoing projects that are not as visible to the average person? These programmes are extremely necessary and serve a vital need. These include providing assistance for people needing hearing aids or eyeglasses. We also can recycle old eyeglasses and frames so don’t just discard them – give them to a Lion. In an effort for the Lions Clubs to continue to improve in their efforts to serve the many communities under their banner we have ongoing seminars and conventions. This year we have a number of this events within our area so many lions from our area will benefit from them. We hope this will be one more way we can learn to serve you better.

Premier endorses Kitimat refinery Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark surprised the opposition Thursday with a statement in the B.C. legislature endorsing a proposed heavy oil refinery near Kitimat. Clark emphasized that the project would be subject to the five conditions about environmental safety and aboriginal consultation that she has demanded for heavy oil pipelines. But she praised the job creation potential and added that a refinery would help supply the “fair share” of benefits for B.C. that is her most controversial condition. David Black, owner of the Black Press newspaper group in B.C., Alberta and the U.S., set up a separate company called Kitimat Clean Ltd. last year to develop the refinery plan and seek permits from the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. Black announced this week that he is finalizing details for $25 billion in financing and purchase agreements for the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel that the plant would produce. “Our government takes the view that we should work together to address legitimate environmental and safety concerns and find a way to get to yes on projects that will grow our economy,” Clark said, adding that the B.C.

David Black shows a sample of bitumen from Alberta’s oil sands while announcing his plan to build a refinery last summer. Black Press files

government has been working with Black’s team to secure a suitable site. Energy Minister Rich Coleman said there is Crown land in the Kitimat area held in an industrial reserve that could be leased or sold to the company for use of the land. Black’s proposal specifies a 3,000-hectare site 25 km north of Kitimat that is on the proposed route of the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. With capacity to process all the pipeline carries, it would be one of the largest refineries in the world.

Black said last week he is pessimistic about the prospects for Enbridge, but the refinery could bring in Alberta oil sands crude by rail, or another pipeline acceptable to aboriginal groups along the route. Rail transport would require six trains a day, but he said no permits are required and CN Rail is willing to do it. The $16 billion refinery would require another $9 billion in construction, including six product pipelines to Douglas Channel to load ships with refined fuel, and a natural gas pipeline to produce power, fire refining equipment and supply hydrogen for a new process to refine heavy oil. NDP energy critic John Horgan said he plans to meet with Black next week, but he was dismissive of Clark’s endorsement. “I think it’s important that the public understands that this is a long, long way into the future,” Horgan said. “And for a government that’s down to 68 days left in its mandate before people vote again, it seems odd to me that we would have taken time in the legislature today to read a press release about a proposal that may not happen until after the next election.” Black estimates that environmental assessment will take up to two years, and the refinery could be up and running by 2020.

New provincial pension plan to serve small business Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA –  The B.C. government is moving ahead with a new pension option for the two thirds of B.C. workers who don’t have access to a group pension plan through their employer. Finance Minister Mike de Jong introduced legislation last week to create Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPP), making B.C. the first province to sign on to a new federal program. The system would allow businesses or self-employed people to set up defined contribution pension plans administered by financial institutions. De Jong announced the program along with Ted Menzies, federal minister of state for finance, who hopes to have harmonized systems across the country so people can continue to build retirement income if they move. Menzies said the PRPP system offers greater simplicity for small businesses that don’t have employee pension plans. The new approach is designed to close a gap in taxdeductible Registered Retirement Savings Plan room that Canadian workers are choosing not to use despite the tax advantages. Once an employer signs up, employees would be automatically enrolled. They have 60 days to opt out, after which time pension contributions would be deducted. Employers don’t need any financial expertise, and employees would have to “overcome the inertia of being involved in the plan” to get out of it, Menzies said. De Jong said B.C. decided to make employer contributions optional, after consulting with business organizations. Mike Klassen, B.C. director of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, said small business accounts for almost half of the private sector employment in B.C., the largest share of any province. “Working forever is

not an option,” Klassen said. Menzies said expanding the Canada Pension Plan would require two thirds support from all

provinces, and that support was not offered at a recent meeting of provincial finance ministers. But there was unanimous support for

the PRPP option. Wilf Scheuer, president of Courtney-based Pro Star Mechanical Technologies Ltd., said he plans to use the new

pension option and match employee contributions in order to retain skilled workers. Pro Star retrofits buildings with geother-

mal heat pumps, tankless hot water systems and other specialized equipment. Scheuer said he recently lost an engineer, hired away

by a large Los Angelesbased company, a sign that his and other small firms are in a global competition for top talent.

Good communication will enable you to get the best service from the Realtor who is helping you to buy or sell a home. Real estate sales are extremely complex transactions which involve large sums of money and the largest single asset most individuals will ever own. Since the possibilities for misunderstandings are great, professional Realtors work hard to ensure that the transaction will go smoothly. This requires clear communication between the buyers and the sellers and other Realtors. Most of the breakdowns in real estate transactions result from vague or inadequate communication prior to the signing of the contract. Express any concerns that you may have and ask about anything you don’t understand – the only foolish question is the one that isn’t asked! When Realtors begin to work with a new buyer, they sit down with them and ask a lot of questions, and do a lot of listening. In the initial buyer interview, they try to get a clear idea of what you are looking for, as well as the price range, considering your overall financial picture. They will explain how Realtors work to represent you, what the local market is like, and what they can do to help you locate that perfect home. At this initial interview, it is important for buyers to be as clear as possible about their needs. What do you like (and dislike) about your current home? What kind of furniture do you have? Do you have any hobbies that must be accommodated? Are you handy enough to take on major fix-up projects or do you want to buy a home that is in “move-in” condition? What is the criteria for selecting a neighbourhood, what style of house do you prefer, what price range and floor plan meet your needs? Are there any special considerations that will go into making your decision? When your Realtor has a good picture of what you want, they

Chilliwack is not my hometown, but it feels like it is. I was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan and spent most of my growing up on a dairy farm. After graduation I moved to Calgary for 15 years, then my husband was transferred to the coast and we made our home in Surrey. I moved out here as a single mom with my three kids almost 12 years ago. We loved Chilliwack immediately and my family has had a very happy life here. So I feel like I’m well qualified to work with new people coming to the area, as well as those who have been here forever, because I believe in this city. I think I’ve found a little piece of paradise and the wisest people know this to be true. Give me a call anytime for your complimentary market evaluation or if you know someone moving to town, pass along my name, because Chilliwack is my hometown now.

will go to work to quickly find the best property on the market to meet your needs. A Realtor won’t show you homes you might love that are way out of your price range. If they know that you have bad knees and want to avoid stairs, you won’t be taken through three-storey colonials with top floor master suites. Promoting clear communication with clients is vital for Realtors as it can save hours of house hunting and, more importantly, ensure that you are not missing out on a listing that could be the perfect house. Realtors listen carefully when buyers describe their needs and preferences. They screen the current inventory of homes to come up with possible matches. Since there is almost always some compromise involved when selecting a home, they may suggest alternatives that might work for buyers. If you prefer a specific neighbourhood where there are no homes in your price range, your Realtor may suggest homes in other areas with similar amenities. If you want four bedrooms and one of them will be used as a home office, they may look for a den or family room that could serve your needs. When you look at houses, remember that your feedback is important to your Realtor. Realtors succeed when they can make your goals their goals. Finding you the perfect home is a collaborative effort. You communicate what you want, why you want it, and where compromise might be possible, and they listen carefully and select only homes that meet your criteria. When there is trust and communication between you and your Realtor, miracles can happen! Creating these miracles for buyers and sellers is all in a days work for your Realtor.

The Mission... The Vision... An Enduring Purpose... A Future Focus... Who Am I... My Promise... These words begin to describe how I differ for the norm. I have spent the past 16 years in the Sales, Marketing, and Advertising field. It is this background that gives me a unique perspective of how a home should be marketed. Are you tired of leaving messages that aren’t being returned? Do you find it annoying when the homes advertised in the newspapers are not as they seem? Wouldn’t it be nice to work with someone who understands your point of view? Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than having satisfied clients whom I have helped to reach their real estate goals. I provide you with the highest degree of professional service excellence and customer satisfaction that is “TOUGH to BEAT.” I am Mike DellaFortuna, and it would be my pleasure to help you.

I have lived in Chilliwack for over 45 years, raising a family and watching this city and surrounding areas grow and prosper. I have a passion for real estate and gained knowledge by building, buying and selling my own homes in this area. I took this experience and knowledge a step further and became a realtor in 2005. As a realtor I approach clients with an honest, down to earth, trustworthy attitude. This is a major reason why referrals from past clients are the majority of my business! In addition, I am continuously improving the services I provide to my clients. I have a thorough marketing plan for Sellers and a complete step by step package for Buyers. As a president’s club recipient since 2009 I pride myself on an excellent work ethic.

Playoff-bound Chiefs end season in style The Chilliwack Chiefs finished the season in the best possible way Saturday night, with a convincing home ice win. The Chiefs bombed the Langley Rivermen 5-1 at Prospera Centre to end the 56 game regular season slate at 33-211-1. Their second win over Langley in three days gives the Chiefs happiness and momentum heading into the postseason, which starts Friday night at home versus the Prince George Spruce Kings. Eric Roberts waited 57 regular season games to get his first BCHL goal, finally scoring at 2:56 of an entertaining opening period. The Abbotsford native took a pass from Philip Zielonka and fired a put-it-on-net wrister from the high slot. The puck snuck through a crowd in front, evading Langley keeper Darren Hogg to give Chilliwack the 1-0 lead. “I have to give credit to Phil, of course, for giving me that nice pass right in the slot,” Roberts said. “I’m more of a defence-first guy who tries to do whatever to get the W for the team. But it’s nice to get that first goal out of the way.” Chilliwack’s bench went nuts when Roberts got his goal, and the good times continued when the Chiefs went up 2-0 at 14:24. With Turner Popoff in the sin bin for boarding and Chilliwack on the power play, Alex Perron-Fontaine darted down from the left point and beat Hogg with a sharp-angle shot for his

third of the year. Roberts was part of a scary moment late in the opening frame. Fetching the puck behind the Chilliwack end-line, Roberts was driven face first into the glass by Langley’s Nathan Craft, whose hit from behind earned him two minutes and a game misconduct. Chilliwack failed to cash in on the power play, but shots on goal in the first period favoured the home team 11-8. Tanner Cochrane exacted revenge for the Craft hit in the first minute of period two. Eight seconds in, the Dawson Creek native took Austin Azurdia into the boards from behind, drawing the same punishment as Kraft. Cochrane’s crew killed off the penalty and went up three donut at 2:52 on a goal by Mathieu Tibbett. Brodyn Nielsen got the primary assist, fighting off a Langley defender to make a backhand feed across the goal mouth. Tibbett steered it home for his fifth of the year. “We came out hard with lots of energy,” Roberts said. “When you work hard and do the little things, there’s always a good result like tonight.” Penalty killing aces Ryan Donohoe and Josh Hansen teamed up to give Chilliwack a 4-0 lead at 7:37. Donohoe, who had two shorthanded goals in a 5-2 win in Langley Thursday, was the playmaker on a two-on-one rush, saucering a backhand pass to Hansen who directed the puck past Hogg for

his 22nd of the year. The next two goals came lighting quick. Riverman D-man Turner Popoff scored at 8:44, picking the top corner on a slap-shot from the far right wing boards. Just nine seconds later, Chilliwack’s Nielsen snuck behind the Langley defence, collected a pass from Spencer Graboski and beat Hogg blocker side for his second of the season. “The third and fourth lines were flying out there, laying the body, and that’s what you

want to see,” Roberts noted. “You want depth, and that’s what we’ve got here.” Chiefs goalie Mitch Gillam was at his best in the second period, making three eye-popping stops. The first was on Langley D-man Mark Whitley who came right down the pipe on a Riverman power play. Whitley took a pass from James Robinson and had tons of time to pick his spot. But Gillam flashed the leather with a glovely save. Later in the period, Trevor Cope thought

he had a goal, hacking away at the puck in a goal-mouth scramble. Gillam left room between himself and the post, but reached back to pull the puck off the goal-line. The Ontario native looked Grant Fuhrish on his third save. Viktor Dombrowsky wired a shot from the left faceoff circle, but Gillam snagged the puck and made a routine save entertaining with a full around-theworld windmill. Chilliwack led 5-1 through 40 minutes, out-shooting Langley

28-19. With the game all but done, Gillam came out of the net at 9:50 of period three, replaced by backup Josh Halpenny. He had little to do as the Chiefs nursed the four goal lead to the final whistle. “It feels really good to get a couple wins in a row,” Roberts said. “We’ve got some momentum now and hopefully we can use that over the next week, and hopefully the next month.” The team did their post-win salute to the fans, circling a couple

times at center ice before heading to the locker room. Playoffs up next, and a date with Prince George. The Fortis BC Energy Player of the Game was Chilliwack’s David Thompson. The three stars were Nielsen (first) Roberts (second) and Donohoe (third). Announced attendance was 2,951.

Unity Christian among the best at provincial tourney The Unity Christian senior boys basketball team capped off their best season ever with a sixth place finish at last week’s single-A provincials. UC hosted the tournament on the University of the Fraser Valley campus, whipping Mt. Sentinel (South Slocan) 82-41 in their Wednesday morning opener.

The Flames faced Kelowna’s Immaculata Mustangs in their second game. The Mustangs went on to win the tournament, but UC gave them all they could handle. The Flames ended up on the short side of a 61-56 final. The Flames faced their arch-rivals from St. Jean

Brebouf (Abbotsford) in game three, earning a 95-80 win. In their final game, playing for fifth place, UC lost 58-56 to the Duncan Christian Chargers. “Our goal this year was to win the Fraser Valley championship and finish higher at provincials than we have the last four years,” said UC coach Mike Campbell. “We

accomplished these goals, and with 10 returning players and a strong basketball program, we will be aiming high again next year.” Ryan Billsten was voted to the tournament all-star team. Billsten is one of two graduating seniors, along with Kevin VanRyk. While they will be missed, the provincial tournament

saw Grade 11 guard Jon Vugteveen solidify his status as one of the best in the province. Swingman Clay Driesen will be one to watch as well, creating matchup problems inside and out. ● The UC senior girls also qualified for provincials, and competed in Prince George. They entered the tourna-

ment as the 14th seed and fell in the opening round to Pacific Christian. The girls rebounded nicely, winning their next three games plus the consolation final. The UC girls return four starters next season, and will be looking to medal at provincials. Get more info at unitychristian.ca/athletics.cfm

Obituaries

DOUGANS Clyde Douglas Passed away unexpectedly on March 7, 2013 in Chilliwack, BC at the age of 61. He was prede- DOUGANS ceased by his parents, Douglas and Carolyn. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Joy; his children Jennifer (Jordie), Peter (Nao) and Andrew (Angie); his grandchildren Carolyn, Charlotte, Peter, William and Remi and his brothers Rob (Carol) and John (Sue). Born in Vancouver, Clyde was an exceptionally hard worker from a young age. He worked paper routes, delivered prescriptions for a pharmacy on his bike and later put himself through UBC while working full-time at Safeway. Upon graduation from UBC, he took a teaching position in Squamish before moving to Chilliwack and starting his career there as a teacher at Central Elementary. He also taught at Strathcona, McCammon, East Chilliwack, was the head teacher at Miller and CHANCE Alternate, and was later principal of Cultus Lake Elementary, Bernard Elementary and lastly, Central Elementary. Central Elementary became a community school under Clyde’s watch and became a passion dear to his heart. During his career, he earned his Masters from the University of Victoria and was

honoured as one of 10 outstanding principals nationally in 2007. Clyde was a huge personality and was well-known for his charity work. He was a notable presence at the annual MCC festival for 35 years, and once auctioned a loaf of bread for $60,000 and then got a matching bid as well. He has easily come between many people and their wallets and through the years has raised hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars for local and international organizations. In retirement, Clyde did not stop learning and working. He worked through his bucket list: learning to make pottery, build a saddle, shoe a horse and was recently becoming tech savvy again as he started work on a website. He was an avid hunter and novice guitarist. He earned his motorcycle license and planned future trips with his beloved Joy. His father’s recent death became a time of reflection and he deepened his relationships with his family and friends. He discussed his faith and eternity openly. He was loved by his wife, his children and his extended family and he loved them all dearly in return. He was well respected and a friend to many. He was a cowboy at heart and his huge personality will be missed by so many now and in the future. The world was left a better place because Clyde was in it. A service celebrating his life will be held at Chilliwack Al-

liance Church on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 3:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to MCC or Sardis Doorway in Clyde’s name would be greatly appreciated.

MICKLER Roland ‘Roly’

Roland Kurt Johann Mickler was born June 5, 1954 in Schlossneuhaus, Germany and died MICKLER March 3, 2013 in Cascade Hospice, Chilliwack, BC after a brief battle with cancer. Roland was predeceased by his mother, Brigitte and father Herbert. Left to mourn his sudden passing are his wife of 35 years, Paula; son, Jordan (the light of his life); sisters: Shirley Mickler and Tina (Steve) Hart; and numerous aunts and uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. Also left behind is his business partner of 27 years in his beloved Phase Electric, Ron (Grace) Vandyke and many wonderful friends. Roland was active with the Chilliwack Youth Soccer Association and acted as president for 10 years. He also coached Rep Soccer and was chairman of the annual Chilliwack Youth Soccer Tournament. A Funeral Service will be held at the Chilliwack United

Church, 45835 Spadina Ave, Chilliwack on March 16, 2013 at 1:30 pm. The family wishes to extend an invitation for anyone wishing to share a special remembrance of Roland to submit it in an email to paula_mickler@telus.net as a book of memories will be displayed at the service. A special thank you goes to Dr. Bull and the wonderful staff of Cascade Hospice Centre and the Palliative Home Care team. Our eternal gratitude is also extended to Dr. Fitzpatrick who is one of the finest human beings on the planet. Paula and Jordan will never forget the kindness shown by so many people. It is hard to fall down when so many are holding you up. Our deepest appreciation. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Hospice Society or Children’s Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
