Opposition can’t stop coach home

■ S OAKING U P T HE S UN

Alina Konevski The Progress

Despite ardent opposition from local residents, city council approved in principle an application to rezone a workshop on Little Mountain to a coach house. The application will go to third reading, after city staff have been assured that the owner has addressed lingering concerns. Owners Pleun Jan and Sara Jacoba De Koning applied to rezone a secondary building on their 47531 Swallow Crescent property from R1-A (one family residential) to R1-C (one family residential with accessory). This would convert the existing workshop into a coach house, and allow the owners to rent it out. Mayor Sharon Gaetz said she couldn’t remember the last time there was so much angst over a coach house. In addition to the dozen or so letters of opposition sent to council, a half dozen of De Konings’ neighbours stood at the city council meeting Tuesday night to argue that the owner circumvented city policy by building the coach house in 2009 under the label of a workshop, and is now seeking proper zoning after the fact. A coach house in the neighbourhood would upset the area’s charm by inviting potentially unsavoury renters, the residents argued. “There is a right way and a wrong way to do things, and Mr. de Koning has done things the wrong way. He has shown little regard for our community and city’s bylaws,” said neighbour Robert Reimer. De Koning acknowledged that he always planned to convert the threestory secondary building into a coach house, but only after his children moved out. “I built my shop about three years ago because I needed parking for my car, and space for my tools,” he said. “I needed the shop. I didn’t need a coach house at the time. I built with the foresight that one day I would like to rezone. That was four years ago. Now my kids have moved out.”

Suspects arrested after shots fired at border police Vikki Hopes Black Press

A man who launched a daylong cross-border manhunt near Vedder Mountain was arrested early Wednesday morning at a home in Abbotsford. But the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is not yet releasing the man’s name or age, or specific details about what led police to the residence. Const. Ian MacDonald, speaking at a press conference Wednesday afternoon, said the suspect was arrested at about 4 a.m. without incident by APD patrol officers and members of

the emergency response team. He was found at a home “within the city of Abbotsford,” although MacDonald would not say what area. MacDonald said the man is Canadian and has recently resided in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland. It is not believed that he was a resident of the home where he was arrested. The man is well known to police for crimes such as drugs and property offences, MacDonald said. “We do believe there will be connections to organized crime and gangs,” he added.

MacDonald said the man is currently in the custody of Abbotsford Police, and it is not yet clear whether he will be extradited to the United States. He said police are continuing their investigation, including the gathering of evidence and details such as who might have aided the man in eluding authorities for almost 24 hours. No formal charges have yet been laid. The APD was contacted by U.S. authorities on Tuesday morning, asking for assistance in searching for a man who had fired gunshots at U.S. border agents in the Columbia Valley

and then fled into a heavily forested area along the CanadaU.S. border. It was believed the suspect would try to make his way south into Canada across Vedder Mountain in the Sumas Prairie area of Abbotsford. The search continued throughout the night, with police using night-vision equipment and sending out tactical teams, MacDonald said. The suspect had initially been spotted with another man, who was arrested by U.S. border agents. Both suspects had been carrying backpacks. Continued: BORDER/ p14

Metro should end garbage incineration, study says Jeff Nagel Black Press

A new report urges Metro Vancouver not to build any new waste-to-energy plants and that its existing garbage incinerator in Burnaby be phased out. Those are among the recommendations in a new study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. Its paper titled “Closing the Loop” examines solid waste policy through the prism of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and encouraging green industries.

Author Marc Lee takes aim in part at Metro Vancouver’s advancing strategy of building a new waste-to-energy plant to consume 370,000 tonnes of garbage by 2018, ending the region’s use of the Cache Creek regional landfill. The Burnaby incinerator, which burns 280,000 tonnes of waste per year, is a heavy carbon emitter even using disputed official estimates, according to the report, making it a considerably worse source of electricity than burning natural gas. “Incineration has adverse consequences for health and

GHG emissions, and requires a steady stream of waste that is inconsistent with zero waste objectives,” the report said. In particular, it notes plastics and paper – key materials that should be diverted for recycling – contribute the most energy when burned. From a climate change perspective, it said, landfilling plastics and wood products would be preferable to incineration, because it would be a form of carbon storage, even though other strategies to reduce, reuse and recycle would be better. Incineration doesn’t make

garbage disappear, it said, noting at least 22 per cent is typically reduced to ash that still must be landfilled, while heavy metals and other toxins can escape. The report also urges province-wide composting and a phase-out of single-use products and packaging. Materials that are toxic or non-recyclable should be either banned or tightly regulated. It also says B.C. needs to develop green manufacturing or reprocessing industries, but admits it will be challenging.

Public investments will be needed, it says, to support a shift away from landfills and incinerators in favour of waste reduction, reuse, repair and maintenance, and finally recycling and composting. No estimate is provided of the public cost, but the report argues fees to landfill or incinerate garbage should be steadily increased to create an advantage for diversion. It also notes much of what’s considered recycling is really “down-cycling” – degrading something like high-quality plastic to lower-grade uses like plastic wood.

The study admits its ultimate “closed loop” vision of a low-waste society where appliances, for example, are repaired and reused for far longer than today is at odds with an open economy that freely allows imports and exports, as well as consumers’ penchant for quickly discarding tech gadgets in favour of new models. Nineteen firms are in the running to build a new wasteto-energy plant for Metro Vancouver – project that has drawn heated opposition from downwind Fraser Valley communities like Chilliwack.

Getting a charge out of electric vehicles Alina Konevski The Progress

The setup of electric charging stations are outpacing sales of electric vehicles in Chilliwack. But that doesn’t deter believers in the electric car revolution. EV charging stations are popping up all over town with determination. The Fraser Valley Regional District went online Friday with two charging stations at their Cheam Avenue office. The City of Chilliwack chargers at City Hall and the Tourism Centre launched about two weeks ago. In total, there are at least 14 public charging stations in Chilliwack, including four Level 1 slow-charge stations at University of the Fraser Valley, and others at various electric car dealerships, according to PlugShare.com. Buyers of plug-in cars also frequently purchase their own Level 2 quick chargers for home. This is despite the fact that as of Dec. 31, 2012, there were only a handful of electric vehicles insured in Chilliwack, according to ICBC. There may have been more EVs purchased since then, and vehicles purchased in Chilliwack may be insured elsewhere. Provincially, there were 285 EVs insured, and B.C. is aiming to have 600 quick chargers soon. Chilliwack resident Paul Bernard was the third person in Canada to purchase the all-electric, batteryonly Nissan Leaf, back in October 2011. The Sardis Secondary School teacher is a self-proclaimed car guy and technology nut who wanted to

do something positive for the city’s environment. “It’s a fantastic way to get around,” he says. “We don’t miss the gaspowered car.” Bernard says the transition from a gas engine, to an electric, was “seamless.” He’s only waiting for more quick charging stations so that he can travel further in a day. “It’s like the first gas-powered cars, that existed a hundred years ago. Your average citizen will look at this thing, ‘Well, where are you going to drive it? You can’t go anywhere, there’s no gas stations, there’s no paved roads. I have my horse, and that works great,’” says Paul. Infrastructure came slowly but surely then, and Paul believes we’re at another transportation turning point now. “There’s a real pioneering phase to the whole thing, because we’re seeing the same transition happening.” Paul and wife Sharon have already put 21,000 kilometres on the car. Although ideal for short-distance commuting, their Leaf can just make it to Vancouver on a single charge. On a Level 2, 240-Volt charger, it takes about 8 hours to re-power. But most daily driving is within 60 kilometres, according to recent studies. The Leaf’s range has been plenty for primary driver Sharon. She easily completes her daily errands, and when she gets home in the evening, her routine is to plug the car into the home quick charger for the night. “I never think about fueling,” she says. “People think they drive a lot, but they really don’t.”

Paul and Sharon Bernard of Chilliwack were the third owners in Canada to buy an electric car. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

The Bernards used to spend $350 a month to fuel their SUV. Now they spend $35 in additional hydro, saving nearly $4,000 in energy bills annually. They still keep a gas-powered car in the household for long-distance trips, and for pulling their RV. The couple is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Level 3 DC Fast Chargers to British Columbia, which can charge a Leaf to 80 per cent in under 20 minutes by providing DC directly to the car battery, instead of through an AC converter. The game-changing chargers are already available in Washington, Oregon, and California, where the U.S. government is building a West Coast Green Highway with fast chargers along the route. B.C. is in a prime position to hop on, and the provincial government has a $2.4 million financial incentives program to defray the costs of charging stations and encourage electric vehicle purchases. Mertin GM manager Jason Arnold is convinced the transport revolution will grip the public.

“Once you drive the car, you’ll be sold. This is the future,” says Arnold. “The manufacturers are investing so much money in electric cars, it’s going to go.” True to his word, Arnold insisted that The Progress drive the allelectric Chevy Volt for a day, of which the dealership has sold five in Chilliwack. The car provides a less stressful entry into the plug-in EV market, as the onboard generator with a 30-litre gas tank kicks in when the battery charge runs out. As all EVs, the car is eerily quiet for the first-time driver. It is silent when idling at an intersection, and even on the highway the loudest noise seems to come from the tires hitting the pavement. With black leather interior and low seating, the Volt feels like a strong, high-end sedan. Charging the car at the free city hall charger is fool-proof. Swipe the right card, and plug the unlocked charger into the car. The car dings, and the city can send a text message, when charging is complete. The city’s experience with their

new chargers has been that the Tourism Centre one is more heavily used, presumably by out-of-town visitors. The centre sees the extra service as one more way to draw people into the centre, where they might learn more about tourism in Chilliwack. Likewise, Best Western sees $3,000 EV charger installations as a way to add value for cross-country clients. The hotel chain is working on being the first to have a charging station at every location, just as they were the first to have free internet for clients, says Kevin Wood, general manager at the Chilliwack Rainbow Country Inn location. “At this hotel, we made a decision to be more conscious about our impact on the environment,” says Wood. The Chilliwack location is getting its first charger in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, the Kelowna branch already has about five chargers, a reflection of demand, says Wood.

Neighbourhoods must take share of density: Mayor DENSITY from Front

Using before and after satellite images retrieved from the city’s website, neighbour Susan Pafford said that de Koning removed trees on public parkland that adjoins the property, which has dramatically altered neighbours’ privacy, and

worsened the peacefulness of the park. Other photos showed brown water runoff from the property leaks into the park. Council agreed to hold a final decision on the application until city staff investigate the source of the runoff, and ensure that all trees removed from

public land have been replaced. De Koning also agreed to consider frosted glass, relocating windows, or planting hedges to restore neighbours’ sense of privacy. Another issue is that the building is 40 centimetres above the maximum height for its

current R1-A zoning, although well below the maximum height for R1-C zoning. This is a common occurrence, said council, because of the difficulty in predicting land level at the time of construction. “This is something that could have easily happened. It isn’t a deliberate error on the

city’s part,” said Gaetz. Neighbours fear that a coach house, and the alleged privacy and drainage issues, has decreased their property values. Looking at existing constructions in the area, builder de Koning believes it is not possible for Little Mountain to become overrun

by coach houses, nor that his has negatively affected property values. The City of Chilliwack has been trying to increase population density in residential neighbourhoods. City council agreed that coach houses, done right, should be encouraged.

Speaking to de Koning, Gaetz said: “Your property is perfect in my view for a coach house. If we are trying to densify, every neighbourhood should take their share of density.” Councillor Ken Huttema said that de Koning has not violated city bylaws, and that anyone constructing a workshop has the right to apply for rezoning. “No bylaws have been broken in this process. It’s a process anyone can undertake to do,” he said. “The beauty of this bylaw is that the landowner has to stay on the property…The landowner has the right to ensure good tenants.” akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/alinakonevski

March warmer, wetter The Progress

Last Sunday’s recordbreaking high of 24°C set the trend, and temperatures continue to be hotter than usual in Chilliwack. “March came in like a soggy lion and went out like a roasted lamb,” wrote Roger Pannett, Chilliwack’s Volunteer Weather Observer for Environment Canada, in a release. After the Pineapple Express record rainfall at the end of February

and beginning of March, Chilliwack warmed up. The March mean temperature of 8°C is more than a point above the 30-year average. It was another wet month, though, with total rainfall 122 per cent above normal. Snowfall levels dropped dramatically. Chilliwack received only 4 cm in March, compared with the 30-year average of 14 cm. “Thankfully, during the last nine days of the month, a dramatic improvement in weather

conditions occurred as a building ridge of high pressure produced mostly warm, sunny days,” wrote Pannett. The month concluded with a hot sun and record highs. “With mean temperatures an abnormal 1.67°C above normal, the January to March period has been the mildest since the 2010 Olympic year,” wrote Pannett. The last frost was on March 24.

Thursday, April 4, 2013 The Chilliwack Progress

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

A mountain of problems Anger and frustration from people living on or near Vedder Mountain was evident at another public meeting held last week to find ways to end the illegal dumping and abuse in the area. More than 100 people turned out, representing the diverse interests of those who enjoy the mountain either as their home, or as their playground. (Setting a new vision for Vedder Mountain, Chilliwack Progress, April 2.) Their anger stems from the piles of garbage routinely dumped on both public and private land. Frustration comes from the fact that few seem able to do anything about it. Sadly, they are not alone in their concern. Residents in Chilliwack River Valley are all too aware of illegal dumping, loud parties and destructive behaviour. People from Harrison, Mission and Maple Ridge all share the same stories. In fact, almost any rural property within the Lower Mainland has experienced the abuse. Part of the reason, ironically, is our effort to be more environmentally responsible. Higher tipping fees aimed at encouraging more recycling have left a selfish few looking for cheaper options. But a bigger problem is the simple

disregard for others. How else can we explain the thought process that concludes dumping garbage along a forestry road for others to pick up is okay? Or that firing a weapon without due regard for what may be in the line of fire is responsible? Or that taking down someone’s gate to trespass across private land to party is in any way respectful? But as baffling as this behaviour may seem to most of us, more challenging is finding a solution. City’s like Surrey have imposed tough new penalties, and even instituted roving monitored surveillance of problem sites. But those options would prove more challenging here, where jurisdictional responsibility is not so clear. Tough fines mean little without adequate enforcement. That’s why efforts to convert the 3,200 hectares of Crown land on Vedder Mountain into an “interpretive forest site” is so appealing. The move would open up additional funding that would enable better maintenance of the area. It may not be perfect. But it would be a step toward protecting an area enjoyed by many, yet being ruined by a few. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

Greenhouse gas leaks from carbon trust

VICTORIA – The Pacific Carbon Trust orchestrated a months-long campaign of calls and letters to discredit a report from B.C.’s Auditor General on its first two big carbon offset projects, before it could be released. Just  as the audit report was about to be made public, the trust, a Crown corporation created at taxpayer expense, participated in  the  leaking of selected critical letters to media outlets. Then the Speaker of the B.C. legislature, Bill Barisoff, made a final, clumsy effort to delay the release of the report. As soon as it was out,  Environment Minister Terry Lake tried to discredit it, by blustering about all the highly paid experts who swore up and down that a forest reserve near Kootenay  Lake,  and a gas flaring reduction project near Fort  Nelson,  were bona fide car-

bon offsets worth $6 million of taxpayers’ money. The audit states  in plain language, with charts and timelines, that  the $6 million was basically given away for nothing. I look forward to further audits on this carbon offset scheme, assuming it survives after the May election, Tom because these two FLETCHER projects aren’t the only boondoggles. The Pacific Carbon Trust was set up in 2008 as part of former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate change program. To make  the  B.C. government’s  operations “carbon neutral,” the government and all of its agencies were required to pay the trust $25 per tonne for their carbon dioxide emissions from fuel use.

In 2011 alone, B.C. universities paid $4.46 million to the trust. B.C.’s 60 school districts paid a total of $5.36 million the same year, and the province’s six health authorities paid $5.79 million. The money is supposed to go to projects that capture carbon, thus “offsetting” the heating of schools, the fuel burned by ambulances and so forth. The 55,000-hectare forest reserve is known as Darkwoods. The audit shows that the Nature Conservancy of Canada decided in 2006 to buy it, using $25 million of federal taxpayers’ money. The deal closed in 2008, the same year the Pacific Carbon Trust was formed.  From 2008 to 2010, the trust bought 450,000 tonnes of carbon offset, based on independent evaluations that all rested on the assumption that Darkwoods would be clear-cut logged. Since the forest was already

owned by Canada’s leading conservancy, this assumption makes no sense. Was the conservancy going to log it, or flip it to someone who would, after accepting $25 million in tax money to acquire it? Legally, it could not. (I would add that the assumption that logging releases all  of the carbon in a forest is also false. Lumber actually sequesters carbon for longer than trees, which eventually die and rot.) The audit found a similar case against EnCana’s flare reduction program, which the company used on many wells before the trust started offering money. EnCana was saving money as well as reducing emissions without collecting offsets. Therefore, the audit concluded, neither of these projects was a credible offset because the emissions savings would have occurred anyway. Here’s the next Pacific Carbon

Trust project that should be audited. In a complicated transaction, the trust bought offsets from something called the Great Bear Carbon Credit Limited Partnership. Yes, this is the world-famous forest on B.C.’s North Coast that was subject to a preservation deal hammered out between the Coastal First Nations, the B.C. government and three U.S.-backed environmental groups. That was in 2006. The offset purchases were in 2009 and 2010, years after detailed preservation areas were mapped and codified in law. Again, the trust paid for forest that was already preserved.

Refinery project would benefit B.C.

1-877-388-4440

Re: The Kitimat Refinery Project. I first heard of this concept from David Black a number of years ago. At the time I was skeptical of its chances . My initially negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Imperial Oil. Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries throughout North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve 4 years at Canfor which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets. My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China’s economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept. It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying on the North America market but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite of China for petroleum products. The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that David Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all Asia will continue to grow and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interest-

John Les,

ed in securing sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers like surprises with taxes, regulations or tariffs . Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. David Black, with his years of diligence , deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and courage to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative . The positive merits of the Kitimat refinery are so profound that this project is really beyond any political persuasion. Any and all supporters of NDP, Liberal, Conservative or even Green should see the tremendous benefits that would come to BC with this project. This initiative will involve the investment of many billions of dollars. That’s for sure. It’s hard for any of us to visualize a million let alone a billion of any thing. So lets look at the “ on the ground” facts of such an undertaking for all of us in BC. Lets start with the big picture. When it comes to the benefits of a petroleum cycle from well exploration to the gas station, the jurisdiction that hosts the refining process enjoys a huge portion of the value addition to the raw material. For the KFC Project that would mean several thousand mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction phase. It would also mean the creation of over 3,000 permanent jobs for the operation and supply support of the refinery when running.

This refinery would be processing 175 million barrels per year which means the tax revenue that could go toward healthcare, education, vital services for the disabled and elderly would be immense. But job creation and tax revenue is not the only desirable feature of the KRC. It also would provide much lower risk to the marine environment. The shipments out of the refinery would be finished product like aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel These. products if ever spilt would be much less impactful on the marine environment. They would also be transported in smaller ships. I know there are those on both sides of the political aisle that address this as a political issue. And I would disagree with both. This is a project that can be attractive to all political stripes. Trade unions would see a significant increase in jobs and memberships. Hospitals and schools across the province would see an improvement in government funding. Business activity especially in the challenged north west BC would be very positively impacted. And those with a concern for the threat of marine spills would see a significantly reduced exposure for the environment . Based on the huge positive impact this initiative could have on BC , I think the question should not be if we want it....but rather, how can we help make sure that the petroleum world sees this as an attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital. Jim Shepard, Retired President of Finning, Canfor, and a past Director of Imperial Oil

FVRD should slow Kinder Morgan I am writing in response to the article, “FVRD approves Kinder Morgan study (Progress, Tuesday, 2 April). The article notes that the FVRD has given permission for Kinder Morgan “to conduct a corridor study in Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park.” Does the FVRD have the

authority to do this? Have they had any public meetings to see if the residents of the area approve of such a study. Director Dennis Adamanson is now “requesting advice from the board how to inform residents that Kinder Morgan has the authority to enter their land irrespective of the

residence permission”. Well I will tell you how:: call a public meeting and explain this to us and get our feedback, after all it’s our park and land. This whole process is going too fast and by passing the concerns and rights of citizens. We don’t want to be pushed around. Slow down, give

us time to do this. In the meantime the FVRD can use some of that time to listen more to the people they claim to be representing. Do you know you could say no to this and thus ensure that no oil pipeline will go through our parkland. Gary Beattie Chilliwack

The 33-year-old’s driving skills got him noticed by police, who saw his vehicle weaving about erratically around 2 a.m. An officer with the Integrated Police Dog Service tried to get Stephan to pull over, but he fled. Minutes later, another officer spotted and tried to stop Stephan on Yale Road, but the Popkum resident kept on going. At 2:25 a.m., a third

Campground fine draws fire Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Questions are being raised again about the possibility of Cultus Lake Park Board violating its own bylaws. But it’s nothing new, said the Park Board Chair. The majority of park board commissioners voted last month to approve an updated Sunnyside Campground Bylaw, which included a $250 fine for anyone using “excessive” amounts of electricity. Some leaseholders are concerned about that, points out Cultus Lake Park leaseholder Rick Williamson, since any bylaw with accompanying fines of more than $50 is technically illegal according to a section of the Cultus Lake Park Act. Several have been approved with fines exceeding $50, which is in direct contravention of the terms of the Act, he argued. This is not the first time the question of legality of the CLPB legislation has come up. A number of leaseholders have submitted complaints to the B.C. Ombudsperson’s office in recent years when they felt the Park Board was going against its own bylaws in a way that inhibited democracy, such as the move to cancel public question period, which was later reinstated. Former Park Board commissioner Terr y Woodrow was one of those lodging an official complaint about that, along with Williamson. “I made the complaint because I think the public needs some relief from this decision that the park board made in camera to violate their own bylaws,” said Woodrow in an interview with The Progress last October. At the March 13 Board meeting, the Sunnyside Campground Bylaw was approved, even though it includes the $250 fine. CAO Ron Campbell stated at the March 13 meeting, in reference to the fine: “We all know that our Act does not allow us to do that legally and it is challengeable.”

Park Board Chair Sacha Peter said he agreed. There is nothing really new in what they did, he explained, and in fact it speaks to some of the bigger governance issues facing Cultus Lake Park and the park board. “It’s all about what’s challengeable in the courts,” the chair told The Progress last week. “The word illegal has been used recently, but ultimately it’s up to the courts to decide the question of legality.” In terms of the Sunnyside Campground bylaw, it’s one that is typically refreshed every year, said the chair. “It essentially is a guide that tells campers what’s prohibited.” The Sunnyside bylaw was one example cited, but there are several with fines that go past the $50-dollar-mark. Violating a campfire ban in the park, comes with a $500 fine, for example, he said. “It’s very rarely used, but it’s on the books,” said Peter. The fact that the Park Act is outdated is well known. “But still the provincial government has made it clear they won’t be touching the Act.” The Park Act hasn’t been challenged in court to date either, except in the case of the Cultus Lake Water Park expansion and the green space debate, said Peter, and “that did not really test any specific provisions of the Park Act.” Trying to deal with the province on these issues has been “frustrating” for the Park Board. “We want the provincial government to update the Cultus Lake Park Act to reflect the modern reality. “We also want it to be updated to give commercial and residential lease holders as well as other stakeholders in the park, greater certainty and stability.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

U.S. Border Patrol agent Jeffrey Jones confirmed Wednesday that the backpacks had been seized at the scene and contained 58.2 pounds of an “amphetamine-based product.” He would not say what the product was. The name of that suspect arrested in the U.S. also has not been released nor is it known whether he is a Canadian

MacDonald said the APD assists in the search for border jumpers “on a regular basis” and arrests such people “on a monthly basis.” He said this incident required a more intense police response because the suspect was carrying a gun and had fired at law enforcement officials. “What amplified this was the public safety risk,” he said.

vehicles. Get more of them on the road, and get gas cars off the road,” says environmental services coordinator Julian Zelazny. The lack of EVs on the road is because of the classic chicken and egg conundrum, which the government has interrupted with the incentives program, says Zelazny. “As people see the chargers are available, and see they’re around, they’ll see electric vehicles as an option. The price will come down.” However, critics question whether electric cars will be the next transport revolution, and whether they might go the way of the “hydrogen highway.” About six years ago, the province invested $1 million into a network of six hydrogen fueling stations for hydrogen-powered cars, and yet there are few such cars on the road.

Progress Jennifer

Feinberg

The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus’ spring concert is April 13 at the Cultural Centre. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS FILE

CSO’s nod to spring with Vivaldi Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Performing ‘Sound the Trumpet’ is a fitting way to start a wonderful evening of Baroque with the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre April 13. ‘Sound the Trumpet’ by 17th century English composer Henry Purcell will be followed by selections performed by the CSO’s special guests, the Monteverdi Symposium. The CSO will close the first half of the concert with the well known and loved ‘Spring’ from Antonio Vivaldi’s ‘Four

Seasons.’ After the intermission, the exquisite ‘Gloria’ in its entirety will be presented by the CSO and Chorus. “Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ enjoys well-founded popularity, and is often performed at many sacred events, including Christmas,” says musical director Paula DeWit. ‘Gloria’ has been recorded on almost one hundred recordings, and has been used in a number of movies. The first movement is featured in the 1996 Scott Hicks film, Shine, about the life of pianist David Helfgott. An adaptation of the second movement was used with profound

effect in the final climactic scenes of the 1985 Andrei Konchalovsky film, ‘Runaway Train.’ Singing in ‘Gloria,’ the evening’s soloists are soprano, Michelle Koebke and mezzo soprano Fabiana Katz. “The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra is especially fortunate to have as their concertmaster, baroque specialist, Carolyn Cole.” Husband and wife teams, Jacob Doherty (baritone, lute & theorbo)/Michelle Koebke (soprano) and David Poon (harpsichord)/Sarah Poon (viola da gamba) make up the core of Vancouver’s early music

ensemble, The Monteverdi Symposium. Having performed together since 2009, The Monteverdi Symposium holds a roster of talented singers and instrumentalists that have collaborated on projects throughout the lower mainland in concerts of music from the 16th century using authentic period instruments. Mezzo-soprano, Fabiana Katz will join the ensemble at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for this performance. With soon to be six children between two couples, the Monteverdi Symposium is now enjoying a renewal of performing together after a

Consultation marks 20 years as examples of our community’s dedication to work together to provide young people with ways to grow in Chilliwack. She is proud of our community for seeking to develop the emotional, physical, and mental capacity of our young people.She grew up in a family and faith community that encouraged giving back, and identifies this as the beginning of her journey in helping others. Her continued commitment to helping our community continues to be inspired by watching her grandchildren engage with the world and community.  “I look at my grandkids and wonder what the world will look like for them, and I hope the things we put in place today will carry on to the future”. Some of the biggest challenges she sees for families today is managing time and having opportunities for spending time together. I know from personal experience when working within an orga-

nization how easy it can be to become insulated from what other organizations and community groups are doing. The Consultation provides the opportunity for government agencies, the school district, faith

communities, and individuals of every age to contribute their knowledge and point of view. For the last few years, the Consultation has included a youth consultation to specifically seek the contribution

of our young people. The voices are coming together again on April 26, hope to see you there! Marie Amos, M.A., is a clinician at Child and Youth Mental Health of Ministry of Children and Family Development.

Cochrane anticipates August return Injured Chilliwack Chiefs forward Tanner Cochrane is in better shape than originally thought, and plans on being fully funcional for training camp in August. The 19-year-old was pushed awkwardly into the boards during game five of Chilliwack’s first round playoff series against Prince George. Things looked bad at the time, and doctors

needed the swelling to subside before they could fully assess the damage. “At first I was told it was a really bad sprain, and it took a couple more doctors to really figure it out,” Cochrane said. “What happened was I tore a ligament off the bone, which made the leg and ankle bones shift.” Cochrane heard a pop when he plowed

into the boards, and in the moments that followed he couldn’t feel his foot. “It was very scary, because I knew something was wrong,” he said. Cochrane had surgery Tuesday afternoon, getting screws inserted to keep the bones in place. He’s looking at a lengthy rehab that starts with staying off

the ankle for six weeks. Then it’s one step at a time. But he’s been told by his orthopedic specialist that he should be good to go by August. “I think we left a lot of things unfinished, and everyone, myself included, will be coming in with a ‘prove ourselves’ mindset,” he said.

Cougars host Voltage as baseball season begins Run differential got the Cougars into a Saturday semifinal against the Sherwood Park Athletics. Chilliwack stuck with the A’s for three-and-a-half innings before commiting a handful of game-changing defensive errors. Sherwood Park led 6-0 heading into the final inning. The Cougars put two on the board, falling 6-2. Regular season play starts this Saturday at Fairfield Island Ballpark with two days of double-double header action against South Okanagan and West Kelowna.

LIFE

PRO

Chilliwack’s midget AAA baseball Cougars shook off the winter cobwebs, traveling to Kamloops to play in last weekend’s KR3 Best of the West tournament. The Cougars went 2-2 overall, facing top competition from British Columbia and Alberta. In their first two games, Chilliwack swatted Okotoks 13-1 and Calgary Babe Ruth 8-4. Chilliwack took on a tough North Shore squad in the final round-robin game, and had a 3-0 lead through four innings. But North Shore struck for five in the fifth and locked it down for a 5-3 win.

Lions support minor football The Chilliwack Minor Football Association holds registration for the 2013 season this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m, at Cottonwood Mall from 10am until 3pm. And they’ll have some special guests. Three members of the Canadian Football League’s BC Lions — wideouts Marco Iannuzzi and Shawn Gore and offensive lineman Dean Valli — will be meeting fans between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. “We are looking forward to another amazing year” said CMFA president Wayne Bjorge. “Chilliwack Minor Football continues to grow and develop many competitive athletes, motivating young men and women to achieve their highest potential.” CMFA hopes to field teams in the flag, atom, peewee, junior bantam, bantam and midget levels this fall.
