Chinese Legacies: Building the Canadian Pacific Railway highlights the contributions of Chinese labourers who helped build the CPR from Port Moody to Craigellachie in the 1880s. It features a campsite diorama, slide show of historical photographs, and several artifacts. “It tells the story of them coming here to look for gold in the beginning, building the railway, and all the deadly working conditions and disease that they had to face while they were here,” said Debbie McKinney, with Hell’s Gate

Pipeline plan ruffles FVRD meeting Alina Konevski Black Press

The Fraser Valley Regional District’s quick approval of a corridor study by Kinder Morgan in Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park has alarmed the activist group Pipe Up Network. Member Lynn Perrin applied to sit as a delegate on the FVRD board in order to motion a reconsideration of the decision to green-light the survey. The FVRD rejected her application, because the regional district has already given permission to Kinder Morgan to proceed with the corridor study. When Perrin attempted to

have the rejection reconsidered at the FVRD board meeting last Tuesday, board chair Sharon Gaetz quickly interjected and invited Perrin to make an appointment to talk to staff about it privately. Perrin tried to comment on the rejection, but was frequently interrupted by the chair and a board member, and finally asked to leave the stand. Gaetz maintains that Perrin’s question did not pertain to the evening’s agenda, and therefore could not be discussed. “It was not on the agenda last night,” said Gaetz. “When someone tries to hijack the agenda, it’s very difficult.”

Michael Hale, another member of Pipe Up Network, also could not get a full sentence in during the meeting’s public participation portion. Hale is concerned that Kinder Morgan’s pipeline plans are pushing ahead without a chance for public consultation. He argues that the FVRD board should place conditions on Kinder Morgan’s survey, such as requesting that raw data be shared. The authority to approve or reject the Kinder Morgan corridor study lies completely with the National Energy Board. The company requested FVRD’s approval to enter Cheam Lake

Wetlands as a courtesy only, said Gaetz. FVRD is “absolutely planning” to have a proper discussion on Kinder Morgan’s proposal to twin the existing pipeline. “Of course we want to have that discussion,” she said. “It just wasn’t on the agenda [that] night.” Gaetz could not specify a date for the discussion. She also believes that the company will consult with the public after the study is completed. “I’m sure we will be having it soon. I know they (Kinder Morgan) have to do their study. They can’t present something that they haven’t got a plan for, right?”

Election issue: Making B.C.’s congested courts more just Jeff Nagel Black Press

To critics, the BC Liberals’ decade-plus in power has left a legacy of cuts to the court system and citizens waiting longer for justice, if they get it at all. Two dozen smaller courthouses were closed down in 2002. And by 2010, persistent budget restraint was causing long delays in getting cases to trial, prompting the B.C. Provincial Court to issue a “Justice Delayed” report that warned more than 2,000 criminal cases were at risk of being tossed out. Despite some more judges being appointed, provincial courts run with 12 fewer judges today than in 2005. Each year, dozens of accused criminals walk free because they can’t be tried fast enough. “The problem hasn’t gone away,” said Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association. “The serious lack of investment is still wreaking havoc in our justice system.” A key source of inefficiency is too many people try to represent themselves in court – often in family law hearings – forcing provincial court judges to spend extra time on those mattters, and often less on criminal ones. That should be no surprise, says NDP justice critic Leonard Krog, after

the province chopped legal aid funding by 40 per cent. “What that did is cripple access to justice for the poor and vulnerable,” Krog said, adding it worsened delays because more people were left without legal advice to “stumble around in an arena where they’re simply not trained or able to fight.” An independent review two years ago recommended more legal aid funding. The NDP would modestly boost legal aid funding – from $70 million now to $80 million within three years. Krog said more than that is needed but can’t yet be promised, given budget constraints. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said the justice budget did rise slightly this year to $1.14 billion, including a small increase in legal aid funding. “To suggest that by simply adding a judge or a few dollars here or there we’re going to solve the foundational problems I think is short-sighted,” Bond said in an interview. Bond contends progress has been made in reducing congestion and the worst delays in the system have eased. There were more than

100 criminal cases stayed by judges in 2011 due to excessive delay, she noted, but that number dropped to 66 last year. Nine new judges have been appointed recently and part of their time is dedicated to reducing the backlog. The province has been on a search for deep reforms since an independent review concluded a “culture of delay” is entrenched in the system. The Liberals would look f o r ways to increase court resources when possible and if necessary, she said, but the emphasis will be on spending smarter, not spending more. “We have fewer cases going to court rooms today yet they’re taking longer,” Bond said, adding the crime rate is at the lowest level in nearly four decades. Bond has unveiled a plan for a Justice and Public Safety Council to better oversee the courts and recommend ways to improve performance, with help from specialty advisory boards. But B.C.’s main success so far in relieving pressure has been the move to roadside impaired driving penalties, which result in instant policeadministered penalties

and far fewer drunk driving cases going to court. The Liberals propose to also move traffic ticket disputes out of courtrooms to administrative tribunals. Crown prosecutors say that while the number of impaired charges has gone down, police are using the time they save on those complex investigations to crack other crimes, bringing more cases of other types before the courts. Lakshman said pervasive delays continue, resulting in charges recently being stayed against two police officers in Surrey accused of assaulting a senior. “These are the types of cases the community demands be tried on their merits – not be defeated by a system that simply doesn’t have the resources or the time to have a trial within a reasonable time period.” Defence lawyers know the odds and still tell their clients that rather than plead guilty they could take the “lottery ticket” of running the case to trial and seeing if it gets tossed. “That only adds to the delay problem,” Lakshman said. The BC Conservatives say the courts and law enforcement have received a declining share of the B.C. budget and the party would dedicate the “requisite resources” to protect people and property.

Kettle Valley Railway presentation in Hope Inge Wilson Contributor

Before there was a Highway Thru Hell (a.k.a. the YellowheadCoquihalla Highway 5), there was a Railway Thru Hell – the Kettle Valley Railway. What these two transportation links have in common was their routing over the challenging Coquihalla Pass and the constant battles waged  with Mother Nature as a result of that terrain.  On May 7 ,    Joe Smuin, author of Canadian Pacific’s Kettle Valley Railway and Kettle Valley Railway Mileboards: An Historical Field Guide to the KVR, will present a fascinating photo-essay high-

Chinese bank backs Kitimat refinery project Tom Fletcher Black Press

The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the country’s largest bank, has agreed to take part in financing a large-scale oil refinery proposed for Kitimat. Kitimat Clean Ltd., a company owned by Black Press chairman David Black, announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding last month. The agreement commits the bank to “be the Chinese financial advisor to Kitimat Clean and cooperate in the financing of the proposed Kitimat refinery and associated pipelines and other elements,” Black said in a statement.

“Chinese companies will be involved in the engineering and construction of the refinery,” Black said. “Up to 100 per cent of the output from the refinery is planned to be sold to Asian markets, including China and India.” He added that majority control of the businesses will remain in Canada. Liu Yanping, deputy head of corporate banking, and Huang Jifa, deputy head of investment banking at the Chinese bank, said in the statement: “We are very pleased to be working toward a comprehensive agreement to finance a refinery in Canada, which is planning to export refined fuels to China and other Asian countries in

the future.” Black released a Mustel Group poll in February that found three out of four B.C. residents support the idea to refine crude oil in Kitimat rather than export the raw product, diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands, by tanker. The same poll found that 57 per cent respondents opposed the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline project. Black has suggested his project may grow to include an alternative pipeline proposal, or oil shipped by the CN Rail line that already connects the Edmonton area with the North Coast.

Opinion

Published at Hope, Boston Bar, Yale and surrounding area by Black Press

Politicians to blame for low voter turnout On May 14, British Columbians will once again have the opportunity to determine the future path our province will take. But with voting numbers having declined steadily for decades, clearly many among us are asking ourselves, what’s the point? One can hardly blame them. Our political parties often seem to be more preoccupied with taking cheap shots at each other than with the serious business of governance. The provincial legislature is no longer a place for ideas to be debated, for legislation to be vetted and weighed, for compromise and consensus to be reached. Instead it is a three-ring circus of petty name-calling, jeers and barbs. Such behaviour shows a lack of respect for the good people of this province for whom the Members of the Legislative Assembly were elected to represent. What’s worse, when nearly all votes in the legislature fall along party lines, the outcome is predetermined. So why vote at all? Certainly that’s the conclusion many British Colombians have come to, as only 50 per cent - a record low - bothered to cast their ballots in the 2009 provincial election. Jurisdictions around the world have tried different methods to bolster voter turnout. Some countries, such as New Zealand, have adopted a proportional representative voting system called single-transferable voting. You might recall it, as a majority of British Columbians voted in favour of it in 2005. Other jurisdictions, such as Australia, have opted to make voting mandatory, with failure to do so resulting in a fine. However, changing the manner in which we vote in an effort to increase voter turnout misses the point. B.C. voters are disenfranchised because the hyper-partisan political atmosphere in Victoria disgusts them. So come May 14 when we get another dismal voter turnout, the politicians will only have themselves to blame. - Black Press

NDP plan is borrow and spend B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher Fourth in a series on party platforms. NDP leader Adrian Dix has finally rolled out his “fully costed” election platform. Major policy announcements had been released previously, but there was plenty more spending added to the total. The NDP’s health care plan is surprisingly modest – more money for home support, residential senior care, mental health and addiction services and a rural acute care initiative totaling $159 million over three years. As health critic Mike Farnworth points out, the residential care increase will allow seniors two baths

a week instead of one. Full marks to the NDP for this part of the platform. Increases to Community Living B.C., children and families programs and aboriginal friendship centres are also commendable. Other NDP proposals don’t inspire as much confidence. Raise welfare rates $20 a month and index them to inflation. Index the minimum wage to inflation too, at a time when inflation can only rise. Set up a new child bonus program to send $70 per month for each child with family income under $25,000. Lesser payments would go to families with income up to $66,000. This ’70s-style family allowance scheme is based on a “child poverty” claim that misrepresents federal statistics of relative income distribution. The program is optimistically budgeted at $210 million a year. Dix

insists it isn’t a “big new social program,” which makes me wonder what would qualify. It would be partly funded by cancelling a B.C. Liberal plan to establish education savings accounts for kids born after 2006. Out with selfreliance, in with the nanny state. Another $100 million is added to hire more teachers, to address the teachers’ union’s often-repeated but false claim of “a decade of cuts” in education. Another $100 million goes to student grants, much of it further subsidizing the oversupply of English, education, sociology, women’s studies, journalism and other university grads who eventually discover there is little demand for their degrees. As with welfare, increasing support for bad choices can only yield more bad choices. On a related note, the NDP will revive a ministry of women’s equal-

Standard

ity, “to promote social and economic equality to all government programs....” As with female candidate quotas, the NDP keeps the flame of ’70s socialist feminism alive. The party totals up its new program spending to $988 million over three years. That’s exactly the amount Dix estimates will be raised by tax hikes on corporate income, bank capital, personal income over $150,000, carbon tax on oil and gas drilling, and cancelling the B.C. Liberals’ RESP and child tax credit plans. As for deficits, the NDP claims that the B.C. Liberal budget hides a deficit of $800 million this year and similar deficits in the next two years. The B.C. Liberals point to an impressive string of “net zero” wage settlements with public sector unions, the core of their spending control record. Would the NDP continue to hold

the line on public service wages, as the B.C. Liberals have done? Dix’s NDP caucus and staff is stocked with former government union officials. Party president Moe Sihota is essentially a direct employee of the same unions. The B.C. Federation of Labour has shaped the NDP’s Labour Code changes, which we won’t see until after the May 14 vote. And how much money does the “fully costed” NDP plan set aside to pay wage increases for its government union brothers and sisters? Zero. Since this is the party that appears to be cruising to victory in the May 14 election, I’ll look at what’s not in their platform and other issues next week.

Worker responded in appropriate manner On April 25, you printed a letter to the editor under the title â&#x20AC;&#x153;More job training neededâ&#x20AC;? and included a photo of an Emil Anderson Maintenance Co. Ltd. (EAM) vehicle. The description of the event as outlined by the writer was not factual and it was misleading. The facts are as follows: EAM received a report from the RCMP of a low hanging telephone communication line at the corner of

Old Hope Princeton Way and Third Avenue. Contrary to the April 25 letter, no high voltage electrical lines were impacted or hanging across the road. The telephone line was caught by a passing backhoe loader but the backhoe loader was not owned by EAM or operated by EAM employees. The RCMP requested EAM supply traffic control for both the eastbound and westbound direction of

Old Hope Princeton Way until the telephone line was repaired. In order to access the opposite side of the affected telephone line an EAM truck, as shown in the picture, went under the cable in a controlled manner, lifted it up too ensure it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t damaged and passed underneath. At no time was the worker involved in any danger. The worker responded in a prompt and appropriate manner in order to supply

the necessary traffic control. The owner of the affected cable (Telus Corporation) was informed immediately and they took action completing the repair later that day.

Politicians destroying the democratic process Re: Voting holds powerful significance, Editorial (April 18) You and other editors lament the low voter turnout in our federal and provincial elections. You think voters donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how important their vote is

and what a privilege it is to be able to vote. It seems to me that the voters are not the problem. They have every reason to be apathetic and cynical. It is the politicians that are destroying the democratic process. It starts with the nomi-

nation papers. Only those who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make waves and stick to the party line will get the nod, regardless of who the voters in any riding may prefer. Once elected, many treat the voters with condescension bordering on contempt.

You suggest that voters learn all about the individual candidates, the party policies and their promises. However, we know from past experience that what they promise or talk about before the election may be totally different from what

Our community has been encouraged to attend for a number of years by nearby mining interests such as the New Carolin Gold Corp. and John Chapman.

Other sectors such as tourism, transportation, retail development, and manufacturing make up important pillars of our current and future local economy, mining activities provide the materials to build goods, the energy to process and transport those goods, and much of the primary income used to purchase other goods and services. Responsible development of mineral resources from appropriate deposits is something we can all advocate for. We are fortunate as a community to have companies interested in exactly that poking, picking, prodding, and digging in an effort to find the building blocks of our cell phones, cars, pharmaceuticals, and supplements that we all enjoy.

Candidates at a Glance

CHILLIWACK-HOPE CHILLIWACK-HOPE

MICHAEL HENSHALL BC Conservative Party

What is your background/political experience? I’ve lived in the upper Fraser Valley with my wife and three children since 1995. I began my working career in the commercial fishing industry. I owned a local contracting business for over 10 years and  was  the former president of a  Ltd. corporation. I am a certified ESL teacher (TWU/ UFV) that has worked in an immigrant settlement program with provincial government/Chilliwack Community Services partnership. I’ve also been a licenced realtor (UBC Sauder school of business) since 2005. I have been a federal Conservative Party member and volunteer, a member of the BC Conservative party, previous vice-president and president BC Conservatives Chilliwack/Hope CA, and a member and director of the Popkum Ratepayers. What are the most pressing issues currently facing the riding? The most pressing issues

GWEN O’MAHONY BC NDP

What is your background/political experience? I’ve had the privilege of representing the communities of Chilliwack-Hope as MLA from April 2012 till present. This past year in office has been a tangible example of what change for the better, one practical step at a time, looks like. Mobile community offices held throughout the riding, town halls and roundtable consultations with the public on issues that matter, a respect-

currently facing the riding are rising unemployment and the large inefficiencies in  provincial government that is hindering our tax dollars from getting to where we want them in health care and education. The Auditor General of BC has addressed these inefficiencies but no provincial party has a plan to deal with them except the BC Conservatives. If elected, what would be your main priority as MLA? My main priority as an MLA on a local level would be to ensure there is proper funding for the Hope hospital, health care providers, education of our youth, the justice system and the local transportation routes. In conjunction to ensure this funding for the local economy, I will fight for viable local mining, forestry  and tourism proposals that have gone nowhere to date, through low taxation and streamlining red tape and the multi levels of bloated provincial bureaucracy. The key to funding social benefits is to have a healthy, vibrant economy. What can be done to stimulate economic growth in the Hope area? The BC Conservatives are looking at the outright elimination of the property transfer tax as well as the elimination of the Carbon Tax. Basic economics states you can not tax and spend people into prosperity (look

at Greece and Spain as a recent examples). When consumption taxes are lowered, the economy is stimulated, thereby increasing labour and production where government can make income tax and capital gains taxes. The young workforce is our tax base! We have the highest overall tax this side of Quebec and the BC Liberals and BC NDP only want to increase it. We will only lose more young people and kill the remaining business we do have functioning in our province. I will also be an advocate for tourism in the Hope area and upper Fraser Valley. We have huge potential for Hope and area to be a place where families can live, work and play with the right government. Why should people vote for you? What the B.C. government has been doing for the past 20 years  is not working. You should vote for me because myself and the BC Conservatives do have a plan. We are proposing legislative and tax reform that will create more scrutiny of our provincial expenses to eliminate waste and the bloated bureaucracy that the Auditor General has addressed. We have a plan to see  health, education and justice systems function effectively. We have a plan to bring good paying jobs to B.C. We have a plan to make B.C. a place where all ages of citizens can live, work, play, and prosper.

ful, collaborative approach are part of the positive approach to representation I promise and have delivered. What are the most pressing issues currently facing the riding? Healthcare, employment and transit are the three main issues that come up in all of the communities of the Chilliwack-Hope riding, but the over-arching concern on the minds of the majority of people I have personally talked to during this campaign is good government. This election is about a choice between more of the same, and positive change for the better in B.C. If elected, what would be your main priority as MLA? I plan to build on the positive, collaborative approach that I have established. In order to find solutions to the complex issues our communities and the province are facing, leaders must

consult with individuals, elected officials and community leaders from both the business and non-profit sectors. What can be done to stimulate economic growth in the Hope area? It starts with being an accessible MLA. The mayor and council, First Nations leaders and industry leaders should have the assurance that they can call upon their MLA to listen and address their concerns and bring forward creative ideas. Why should people vote for you? This past year I’ve worked hard to establish important and necessary relationships with community leaders. I’ve focused on positive problem solving rather than derogatory finger pointing – a type of politics people are quite frankly tired of – and in doing so have earned people’s respect and a reputation for hard work and trustworthiness.

RYAN MCKINNON Independent What is your background/political experience? I have followed British Columbia politics since I was nine years old. My father taught me about policies of provincial parties of the day and how these policies affected the economy and industry locally. In my adult years, I have learned through my own assessments as to how the parties function and how their decisions have directly affected communities throughout British Columbia. What are the most pressing issues currently facing the riding? Job creation throughout our constituency is the most pressing issue. Other issues include:

LAURIE THRONESS BC Liberal Party What is your background/political experience? I have long experience in politics at the provincial and federal levels, much of it serving the Fraser Valley. I began work with Harvey Schroeder, then Social Credit Minister of Agriculture, followed by Grace McCarthy in Victoria. I also worked for Preston Manning, Stockwell Day and Stephen Harper when they were leaders of Canada’s official opposition. When the Conservative government came to power, I assisted Chuck Strahl as his Chief of Staff in three federal departments; additionally I was director of policy for the Minister of Health.  I

protection of our air and water resources, crime reduction, pipeline expansion, economic stimulus, transit for smaller communities, light rail expansion, doctor and nurse shortages, and child protection reform. If elected, what would be your main priority as MLA? My main priority would be child protection reform. My plan will save children and families the unneeded hardship of the current system. Restructuring the current system will save hundreds of millions of dollars a year. These dollars will be better spent on economic stimulus providing jobs for families in the Chilliwack-Hope riding, as well as communities in British Columbia. What can be done to stimulate economic growth in the Hope area? I believe providing tax incentives to the resource-based and manufacturing sectors could bring jobs to Hope. There are currently several mining projects waiting for approvals that would bring hundreds of jobs to Hope. Providing three scheduled transit runs a

day to Chilliwack would be beneficial for people to tap into the job market down the valley. More promotion of our tourism industry and new and evolving ideas from local residents would also help stimulate economic growth. In addition, provide grant access to people with small business ideas, giving them the resources for start-up costs. Why should people vote for you? As a lifelong resident of the Chilliwack-Hope area, I understand what our communities need to grow and prosper. I have met people from all walks of life in our community and I look forward to representing each and every one of you in Victoria. As an independent candidate, I am not accountable to any party’s policies. I am accountable to the you, the voter. For true representation, I hope you choose me as your Member of the Legislative Assembly on May 14, 2013. I look forward to hearing all your concerns as well as ideas for economic growth for the Hope and Boston Bar area. My email is mckinnonryan22@gmail.com

have a Master’s degree in public administration as well as a PhD in history, and I wrote a book in 2008 about the history of our penitentiary system. Most recently (fall 2012) I taught criminal law at the University of the Fraser Valley. What are the most pressing issues currently facing the riding? People are more and more willing to travel long distances in order to shop, and Hope is feeling the effects. The trend has resulted in economic dislocation in Hope, particularly in the local business community.  While I believe that economic growth will happen naturally as the population in the Fraser Valley grows, the period of transition has been difficult. The most pressing issue facing the Hope area, therefore, is the need for more local jobs, which would in turn increase local economic activity.  If elected, what would be your main priority as MLA? Beside the priorities of representing and assisting constituents and performing my legislative duties,

my personal interest is in providing more long-term treatment for those addicted to drugs. I see this as one of the greatest public policy opportunities of our time to reduce poverty, homelessness, property crime, gang activity, and general human misery.  To that end I have toured the Thunderbird Motel in Hope, and would like to assist the good work that they do. What can be done to stimulate economic growth in the Hope area? To stimulate economic growth I will advocate, as MLA in Victoria, for government assistance to establish a serviced industrial park near Hope that would attract clean, light industry – and jobs – to the area. Why should people vote for you? People should vote for me for three reasons: I am a free enterpriser who wants to see business, rather than government, grow. I am an experienced and well-qualified person of integrity who can get things done, and I am a friendly and approachable person with whom they will feel comfortable.

Sports Minor soccer draws 190 players this spring

Barry Stewart

The Hope Standard

Softball bats have been silent for a few years now in Hope, with no local leagues for kids or adults to play a game that used to be huge in this town, 20 or 30 years ago. But, where one sport has struck out, another has seen continued success. Hope Minor Soccer got started in about 1980 and has offered families an affordable and simple sporting option ever since. The association now offers the sport to kids from kindergarten to Grade 9 — and they have 190 registrants this spring, down a few from the record of 200 a few years ago. What’s the secret to their success? “I’d say it’s because it’s affordable,” said president Bruce Becker on Monday. “It’s only 40 dollars for the spring or fall season — 60 if you sign up for both. “It’s also only once a week, on Saturday mornings,” he added. “That leaves the rest of Saturday and Sunday and weekday evenings free for other activities.” Becker, who is principal of Silver Creek Elementary, said the registration numbers are well-distributed through the age groups. “The kindergarten-Grade 1s have 52 players and the Grade 2-3-4s and five-six-sevens are in the upper 50s and the Grade 8-9s have about 30,” said Becker. “It’s about 50-50 boys and girls in the younger groups but it gets more boy-heavy in the older groups.” Parent involvement is crucial, with each team having parents act as coaches and referees. “We also have about eight Hope secondary students and former minor soccer players helping out,” added Becker. With the move to include Grade 8 and 9 students this year, the Saturday league is helping develop players for the secondary school leagues. Several Grade 8-9 players were playing for the senior Mustang girls, who concluded their season on Tuesday. The Mustangs had three home games in the span of a week to finish the year. They were soundly schooled by the visiting teams, which were basically adjuncts of large community-based clubs. The Hope girls worked hard, es-

pecially on defense, but were unable to maintain possession and use the ball productively on offense. Grade 12 midfielder Jamie Peters was rewarded for her tenaciousness with a goal on a high lob across the box, versus Chilliwack’s G.W. Graham last week. That was Hope’s only goal in the three games. The Mustangs will be graduating Peters, Betsy Kopola-Hoshowski, Sydney Pellegrino, Mina Kim and Alex Sau-

vé — but the last games had signs of hope for next year’s team, especially in net. Grade 9 defender Erica McAllister got her first start in goal on Monday versus St. Jean Brébeuf of Abbotsford. She was understandably tentative on closing the gap on loose balls in the first half but she took coach Jeremy Smith’s instructions to heart and she and her teammates kept the visitors off the score sheet in the second half.

By Tuesday’s game against MEI, McAllister was moving up and confidently challenging attackers, showing good hands in stopping shots. Coach Smith said a big challenge for the girls this season was getting to play as a team. “They had a year off last year (due to the teachers’ job action), so they had to get to know each other. We also had some brand new players, so they had to learn

the basics. Some could hardly kick the ball, to start with. “It’s definitely coming together, though,” he added. “We’ve got the defense working and the goal kicks.” The final sport of the school year for HSS is track and field. Coach Jason Fisher is currently preparing the team for the Fraser Valley regional meet, which leads to the B.C. provincial championships.

Major curling event coming to Abbotsford

DAN KINVIG FILE PHOTO

The Canadian Seniors Curling Championships at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre last year drew high-profile rinks like the Colleen Jones foursome from Nova Scotia. The city will host another big event this fall – The Masters, a Grand Slam of Curling spiel. Dan Kinvig Black Press

Big-time curling is returning to Abbotsford this fall. The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre has been awarded the right to host The Masters Grand Slam of Curling, Oct. 30 to Nov. 3. The five-day international event – part of the Sportsnet-

owned Grand Slam series – will feature 30 men’s and women’s teams competing for a combined purse of $200,000. “We’re very excited about it,” said Jason Blumenfeld, general manager of the AESC. “It’s something we’ve been working on for a couple years now. It’s been held in other Global Spectrum

buildings in Canada, and it’s done very

well.” The Fraser Valley/

Lower Mainland region isn’t necessarily known as a curling hotbed, at least when compared to the Prairie provinces, where the sport is truly embedded in the culture. But Abbotsford has a rich history of hosting major curling events. The city has hosted national championships, including the 2003 Canadian Mixed and the 2012 Canadian Seniors, and has been home to big-time cashspiels in the past, including the Wayden Transportation Ladies Classic, a former Grand Slam event, from 2000 to 2008. Blumenfeld noted that with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, on the horizon, interest in curling will be heightened when the Masters arrives in town this fall. The exposure on Sportsnet should also help draw fans. “We’re going to have some of the top teams who have al-
