Throness looks forward to new job

Alina Konevski Black Press

It’s been just over two weeks since the election, and MLA-elect for Chilliwack-Hope Laurie Throness is already fielding requests for support from the community. The former Chief of Staff for Chuck Strahl will officially take the reins after all the ballots are counted, sometime in June. “Everything is brand new, we’re all feeling our way in this,” said Throness. Black Press sat down with Throness to find out what can be expected under his leadership. Here is the edited interview.

Boston Bar celebrated its 86th annual May Day festival on Saturday. Residents came out in full force to watch the parade, crowning of the new May Queen and traditional May Pole dance. In addition to children’s activities, food tents, silent auction and vendors at Memorial Park, families were entertained throughout the afternoon by Blind Dog Johnston and the Sinners and Ish da Fish. On Saturday night, the Beatles tribute band Atlantic Crossing, with guests Cease and Desist, took over the main stage for a special concert. Several Community Spirit Awards were also presented to residents on Saturday on behalf of the Boston Bar/North Bend Enhancement Society.  Audrey Dekoning was recognized for her work in creating the town’s website, which has been visited many times by people outside of Boston Bar and used to access the Update Newsletter. Andy and Kerri Lynne Chartier were awarded for bringing in truck loads of donations for the food bank every year. They have two plots at the community garden and continue to donate fresh vegetables, even though they do not live in town full time. Jeff White also received an award for stepping up and taking on many jobs with such a willing spirit.  The 2013 Youth Awards were presented to Austin Forman, Spencer White, Darcie Forman and Kraeg Charlie for being “an inspiration and terrific role models for their peers.”

Hope Brewing Company has award-winning wine Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope is growing a reputation worldwide for craft winemaking. Glen Ogren of Hope Brewing Company recently won a gold medal at the 2013 WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition. He received recognition for his 2012 Liebfraumilch in a White Vinifera Blends category which had 141 entries. “This is the largest competition in the world for craft winemakers,” said Ogren, who also won a 2011 bronze medal for

his 2010 Cellar Craft Showcase Chilean Carménère. “They get entries from all over the world. To be recognized by them is quite an honour and it adds to the knowledge that you’re doing things right.” From April 19-21, a record 4,564 different wines were judged at the 2013 WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition in Burlington, Vermont. Judging panels worked through 923 flights, examining each wine using the UC-Davis 20-point wine scale evaluating appearance, aroma, taste, aftertaste and overall im-

pression. “Our wine was sent about four months after we made it, and it was consumed two months after that,” said Ogren. “This was the perfect aging for that wine.” This year was the largest WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition in its 11-year history. Entries arrived from hobby winemakers throughout North America and as far away as Italy and Australia. For more information on Hope Brewing Company wines, visit or call 604-869-7582.

FVRD to be billed for incinerator info

Alina Konevski Black Press

The Fraser Valley Regional District is welcome to detailed information on Metro Vancouver’s Waste-to-Energy incinerator plans, but at a cost. FVRD wants access to every Metro Vancouver document related to the incinerator, going back a year and a half. In exchange, Metro Vancouver demands nearly $5,000 in fees to fulfill the Freedom of Information (FOI) request. “We want to see the technical documents, we want to see all the back-and-forth, and see what’s going on, and how far along the process are they that we’re unaware of,” said Paul Gipps, FVRD chief administrative officer. “We need to know if we’re just going through steps and actions, and the decisions are already partly made.” FVRD doesn’t believe that it currently has all WTE-related information. A consulting company hired

to oversee the WTE procurement process, HDR Corp., decided not to renew its contract in December because of an email between the company and Metro Vancouver showing bias toward certain technologies. This triggered FVRD’s request to view all of Metro Vancouver’s WTE documents and communications. “Waste-to-Energy is the biggest thing affecting the Fraser Valley Regional District right now, and we’re taking it very serious, and we want Metro (Vancouver) to understand that they need to take our concerns very serious,” said Gipps. FVRD originally submitted its FOI request on Feb. 21, 2013. On March 1, Metro Vancouver replied that to provide these documents, FVRD will need to pay $4,942. This covers the estimated 78 hours of work, and 10,750 photocopies. Metro Vancouver will not begin the process without an initial deposit representing half of the

total amount. FVRD responded on March 28 with a request to waive this fee on the grounds that the records relate to a matter of public interest, in line with Section 75(5) of the Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection Act. Metro Vancouver refused to waive the fee. “I do not understand how the records relate to a matter of public interest or how they directly relate to the environment, public health or safety,” replied Chris Plagnol, Metro Vancouver’s Information and Privacy Coordinator. “Further, Metro Vancouver does not believe disclosure of thousands of records can reasonably be expected to benefit the public.” Metro Vancouver’s failure to see how this disclosure relates to public interest is “unsettling,” according to Stacey Barker, FVRD’s Manager of Environmental Services. She recommended last week that FVRD send a letter to the Information & Privacy Commissioner,

We recognize that there can’t be a dialysis clinic in every town of B.C., but I promise that I would go to the Minister of Health and ask for a reassessment. I will do that. What we want to do is to compare the services that are provided to other population bases, and to make sure that we are treated on an equal footing. When residents come to your office with a problem, what can they expect from you? They’re going to be greeted with a service-oriented office, and an office that is eager to help with their problems, and to negotiate their way through the provincial public service. Already I’m being asked to help on a number of different issues. So I’ve already begun the job. I’m a hard worker, I’m service-oriented...I’m a problem solver, and I intend to apply those skills and that energy to the people of Chilliwack-Hope. MLA-elect Laurie Throness can be reached at:

requesting a review of Metro Vancouver’s refusal to provide a fee waiver. Gipps agrees that the public interest element is self-evident. “It’s clearly in the public interest. 450,000 residents in the Fraser Valley area are going to be directly impacted by this, and that’s very significant to us,” he said. “We represent a lot of people, and we’re all very concerned about our health and well-being out here in the Valley.” FVRD does not have a seat on the expert panel that oversees WTE plans. If this panel recommends to build an incinerator on Fraser Valley land, then FVRD will take part in the environmental assessment working group, as mandated by the Ministry of Environment. FVRD expects to use the information collected through the FOI to inform its decisionmaking at the working group, as well as guide its responses to Metro Vancouver’s WTE plans.

Cycling to raise awareness about West Papua

Jeremy Bally from Bowen Island has embarked on a 12,000-kilometre in-

ternational cycling and performance tour which aims to raise awareness of the ongo-

ing human rights and environmental abuse in the underreported region of West Papua.





have been mailed. If you have not received your notice, please contact the District of Hope at (604) 869-5671. All property owners are responsible for payment of property taxes and applicable penalties, regardless of whether or not a tax notice is received. If you pay your bills through your bank’s online/telephone banking payment option, the District of Hope has vendor payment agreements with several financial institutions in BC for the payment of taxes and utilities. Please quote your tax roll number or utility account number when making a payment. Contact the District of Hope Tax/Utility Department for more information.

HOW TO AVOID PENALTIES: A 5% penalty will be added if full payment of current taxes and application for the Provincial Home Owner Grant have not been received by the July 2, 2013 due date. An additional 5% penalty will be added to outstanding current tax balances remaining after July 31, 2013. Customers that have arrangements with Financial Institutions/Mortgage Companies to pay their property taxes should be aware that the Financial Institutions/Mortgage Companies are responsible for payment of property taxes only. It is the owner’s responsibility to pay the residential utilities and claim the Provincial Homeowner Grant (if eligible).

Bally will be riding a bicycle loaded with everything from a projector to a ukulele through six countries over six months, touring a multimedia performance and engaging with citizens the world over about this story. This is Bally’s second tour, having rode 7,500 kilometres from Victoria to St. John’s, Newfoundland last year while telling a story built around his own time spent in West Papua. “It’s home to the bird of paradise, the second largest jungle remaining in the world, and our planet’s most biodiverse marine zone” said Bally. “As many as 500,000 indigenous West Papuans have died as a result of the military presence and lack of development in their homeland throughout. That number is impossible to confirm, though, as media organizations have never really been allowed access without close government supervision.”


Jeremy Bally will be performing a story about West Papua on June 6 at 7 p.m. at Christ Church Parish Hall in Hope. He is currently on a 12,000-kilometre international cycling tour which aims to raise awareness of the ongoing human rights and environmental abuse in the underreported region.

The performance brings the voices of Papuans to the international stage through a projected animation which brings to life nine recorded conversations with exiles, refugees and activists from West Papua. Bally narrates this film live on stage using original spoken word poetry and ukulele based hiphop. “I love riding my

bicycle. I love telling stories. I feel like just because something is important doesn’t mean people will care,” said Bally. “I’m using this artistic approach because it’s a more open way to engage people. I want the audience to come because they’re expecting a great show. I want them to leave knowing how to make the world a more peaceful place”. On June 6, Bally will

be performing a story about West Papua at 7 p.m. at Christ Church Parish Hall in Hope. There is no charge for the event but donations will be accepted to raise funds for Pacific Peoples‘ Partnership, Canada’s only non-governmental organization currently working with grassroots organizations in West Papua, as well as advocate for the release of the roughly 40 political prisoners in West Papua, all of whom have been imprisoned for peaceful dissent. “This is not your dry ‘just the facts ma’am’ kind of event,” said Rev. Gail Newell, of Christ Church Anglican Parish. “Jeremy puts on a great multimedia show. He loves telling stories in an engaging way.  It is inspiring for all ages, especially young people who wonder if one person can make a difference. Jeremy shows that they can.”

Residential utilities are due on July 2, 2013. A 5% late payment penalty will be added if full payment of residential utilities has not been received by the July 2, 2013 due date. An additional 5% late payment penalty will be added to outstanding utility balances remaining after July 31, 2013.

The art is funded by Embrace BC through the government of Canada and the province of B.C., and is delivered locally by Free Rein Associates and the Hope Inclusion Project. The program seeks to promote inclusion by looking beyond art and delving into the culture, struggles and traditions from which art is created.

Quilters showcased at art gallery

Sara Lesztak Contributor

Fifteen quilters are preparing to delight visitors to the Hope Arts Gallery this June. Hand-sewn and machinesewn quilts will be featured in the back room exhibit, which runs June 1-28. Be prepared for magic: artistic compositions, scenes of animals and birds and the beauty of Hope’s outdoors among designs of charming traditional patterns.

Each quilt artist has a special talent and interest. A variety of techniques are used to create these scenes including paper piercing, raw edge appliqué, and needle-turn appliqué. Cotton and batik fabrics are used, with works ranging in size from table runners to bed quilts. The Hope Quilters meet twice a month between September and May to learn a new project. These projects support one charity chosen for the year. These

charities have included the hospital auxiliary, Hope Search and Rescue, Hope & Area Transition Society and Fraser Canyon Hospice Society. For more information about The Hope Quilters, contact Eva Andrews at 604-869-5863 or Phyllis Evanson at 604-8699941. The opening reception will be on June 8, from noon to 4 p.m., at Hope Arts Gallery (349 Fort St.) Refreshments will be served.

search similar to that currently conducted by the Research Centre is also being done by academia/ industry and that the Research Centre will cease to duplicate their efforts,” he wrote. “While AAFC’s dairy research will be consolidated elsewhere, UBC’s Dairy Education and Research Centre will continue to operate on site.” The centre will continue to host research into minor use pesticides, horticulture and crop protection, he added. Strahl also confirmed that the reason for the cuts was a fiscal decision, in an effort to reduce overall government spending, and balance the budget. “Unfortunately, that means that some federal civil servants will be affected,” he said. “Employees who are affected have several options ranging from early retirement to alternative federal employment, to catching on with projects that may be sponsored by academia or stakeholder groups.” He also referred to the new Growing Forward 2 program that puts money in the hands of the

provinces and stakeholders, “to develop market access, innovative products and to explore solutions to food and environmental issues.” He suggested that the facilities in Agassiz could be used by stakeholders to begin new projects that “address the needs of the community.” GF2 is a $3-billion investment by federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) governments and the foundation for government agricultural programs and services over the next five years. The new program came into effect on Apr. 1, and includes three key components for agricultural: AgriInnovation, AgriCompetitiveness and AgriMarketing. It also includes a business risk management program to help protect farmers against severe market volatility and disasters. The Agassiz research station is one of 19 federally funded stations across the country. It has been operating in Agassiz since 1889 and consists of 310 hectares, research greenhouses, an arboretum and the longest-running weather station in the province.

Poultry operations to cease in Agassiz

Jessica Peters Black Press

The Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre is not closing, MP Mark Strahl has stated in an email to Black Press. The statement is in response to a story published last week announcing cuts at the Agassiz-based research centre operated by the federal government. Several positions are reported to have been terminated in the past weeks, leaving the centre with as few as five scientists and causing fear that the centre will eventually close. Last week, the Agriculture and AgriFood Canada office confirmed that the centre is experiencing a “work force adjustment situation” and that employees impacted are being provided with support. While Strahl said “the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre in Agassiz will continue to play an important role in agricultural research in our region,” he also confirmed that operations there will be affected by changes. “I am advised that poultry re-

workshops are limited, so participants are encouraged to register in advance. For more information on the traditional art workshops, email or call 604-8692279.

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

More accountability needed

Prime Minister Stephen Harper tried to distance his office from the growing scandal involving Senator Mike Duffy last week, but while his words may have soothed Conservative MPs and senators, they don’t wash with taxpayers. Harper said there needs to be a tightening of the rules regarding expenses. He sounded angry that some members of his government continued to fleece taxpayers. While his anger is welcome, action would be preferable. Yes, the rules regarding expenses need to be tightened. There also needs to be far more accountability than there is now, and that includes accountability from the prime minister’s office. Harper’s former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, resigned after it was learned that he had written a personal $90,000 cheque to Senator Mike Duffy, allowing Duffy to withdraw from an audit into his housing allowance. Whether or not Harper knew of the cheque, it is obvious that his top aide both wrote the cheque and had no problem with Duffy unilaterally shutting down an audit, by repaying the housing allowance. The problem is that MPs and senators do not disclose all their expenses. Every single item they bill to taxpayers, whether it be a $15 glass of orange juice or a $90,000 housing allowance, needs to be itemized and posted online as soon as payment has been made. Then taxpayers can find out for themselves how these people spend our money, and draw their own conclusions. A further probe may reveal all the details, but it seems obvious that Wright wrote a cheque to Duffy to specifically prevent information from being released. This is unacceptable. Duffy and Senator Pamela Wallin (both former members of the media), who racked up $300,000 in expenses in less than two years, have left the Conservative caucus. But they continue to sit as senators, as do Patrick Brazeau, who was kicked out of the Conservative caucus due to criminal charges he is facing, and former Liberal Senator Mac Harb, who is under investigation for use of the housing allowance. All four of these people need to resign from the Senate. In addition, Harper should not appoint any more senators until a whole new set of rules are in place to ensure that there is 100 per cent transparency and accountability for all MPs and senators, and indeed for all senior officials of the federal government. The Senate may be a joke to most Canadians, but we are stuck with it, since reform or abolition will require virtually unanimous agreement from provinces. If we are stuck with it, let’s ensure that senators are on a tight leash as far as expenses go, and let’s at the same time ensure there is accountability and transparency for the expenses of all MPs, senators and senior government officials. Taxpayers deserve to have their funds spent carefully and judiciously, and to know exactly how those funds are spent. -Black Press

BCTF digs in for endless war

B.C. Views Tom Fletcher

Like those Japanese soldiers who didn’t hear about the end of World War II, the militant fringe that controls the B.C. Teachers’ Federation is digging in for endless battle against the B.C. government. Their nemesis, Premier Christy Clark, reiterated last week that seeking a 10-year agreement with the BCTF is a top priority when the legislature is recalled this summer. The current one-year truce ends June 30. The BCTF grudgingly agreed to that extension last year, then ran TV ads calling for an NDP government that promised concessions and union bosses on both sides of the negotiating table.


“You know, I may be a lame duck,” outgoing BCTF president Susan Lambert crowed to cheering classroom-warfare radicals at the union’s convention in March, “but I think Christy’s goose is cooked.” We’ll never know how much this sort of gloating contributed to the epic collapse of the NDP, champion of public sector union members whose pay and benefits make them the new upper class. But I can tell you the prospects for sparing children from this ideological warfare are not good. Last week the B.C. Court of Appeal handed down an ivory-tower decision that upheld the “right” of teachers to bring their union demands into the classroom in the form of posters, buttons and black armbands that to some self-absorbed teachers symbolize the “death” of education. During the election campaign,

Tuesday - Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The Globe and Mail carried a story on one of those mock elections held in schools around the province. An elementary-level student was quoted as saying she voted against the B.C. Liberals because Clark “caused a teachers’ strike.” If this kid was talking about the most recent strike, I wonder where she got that idea. In a negotiating performance that was appalling even by BCTF standards, Lambert and her team conducted months of disruptive work-to-rule action before they could even articulate a wage and benefit demand. When they finally did, it was outrageously out of touch with reality. An indication of how the union’s ruling class wants to conduct itself in the classroom can be found in the latest issue of the BCTF newsletter to its members.

They include preparing citizens who are “creative, flexible, self-motivated, and who have a positive self-image.” Another goal is citizens who are “skilled and who can contribute to society generally, including the world of work.” Larson then mocks these goals, as follows: “Essentially, the Ministry of Education has a vision of citizens who will maintain the status quo, not rock the boat, and participate on a superficial level in aspects of political and societal change. It doesn’t challenge individuals to take direct action against exploitation, marginalization and violence.”

In case you missed the political message, Larson later asserts: “The educated citizens we graduate from our schools cannot just be content to wear a pink shirt once a year…. Educated, engaged citizens must be willing to take direct action to change and shape our society for the better.” What is this ghastly “status quo” that must be challenged by “direct action”? In these campus-radical screeds, the final answer is generally the same: capitalism. This call to arms is a blend of the NDP election platform and a rant from the Occupy Vancouver squat of a couple of years ago.  It’s no wonder we hear of students making BCTF picket signs in art class.

Letters The Canadian Senate must change Reform Party leader Preston Manning used to get great audience reaction when he said that the Senate thrived on “protocol, alcohol and Geritol.” Senate reform was one of the main reasons the Reform Party became such a successful grassroots movement in the 1990s. At the time, there was a palpable desire for meaningful change, with most in the west wanting a “Triple E Senate” - an institution that would become equal, elected and effective. Previous attempts to change Canada’s constitution – the Meech Lake and Charlottetown Accords – were dead on arrival in the west in large part because they failed to propose adequate Senate reform, particularly in regard to equality. Because the Senate is not equal, and because senators are unaccountable to Canadians, there is a growing sentiment that perhaps the time has come to abolish it entirely. This sentiment only grows stronger when we see the sort of stories coming out of Ottawa recently.

All senators – including the vast majority who are dedicated public servants – are now under the microscope because of the actions of a few. There are just too many stories of inappropriate behaviour, undeserved payments and unverifiable addresses for several members of the upper chamber. Canadians have rightly reacted strongly to these stories, and several senators have been forced to resign from their party caucuses due to their unacceptable actions, even though they currently remain in the Senate. Many people have taken the time to contact me to let me know how disgusted they are with the current Senate scandal in Ottawa, and I assure them that I share that sentiment. I am angry that the unelected, unaccountable few have treated taxpayers with such disdain and I hope that they face the full force of the numerous authorities that are currently looking into this. Months ago, before these latest stories came to light, the Prime Minister had asked the Supreme


Court to advise us on the process that would be required to reform the Senate (have them elected and accountable, and limit their term of office). He also asked the court to rule on the possibility of abolishing the Senate – a process that will no doubt be very difficult to achieve without another round of divisive constitutional wrangling. Either way, change is coming and it can’t come too soon. Of course, while we wait for the court to rule on Senate reform options, (later this year), there are changes to be taken right now to ensure that further abuses can’t happen in the Senate expense accounts. The full list of those proposed reforms can be found at http:// Suffice it to say they’re strong enough that no one will be able to say “the rules weren’t clear to me”. While we aggressively pursue Senate reform, it’s puzzling why new Liberal leader Justin Trudeau is aggressively protecting the status quo. Just this past weekend, in an interview with La Press in his

home province of Quebec, he said: “We have 24 Senators in Quebec and there are only six for Alberta and six for British Columbia. That benefits us.” He is defending the status quo in the Senate because it benefits his home province, to the detriment of British Columbia! He has also said that he thinks that electing Senators would be a “terrible idea” and that we just need to appoint better people. I think he’s missing the point – it’s the unaccountable part of the current Senate structure that people are most unhappy with, regardless of party. The status quo is not acceptable to Canadians – certainly not those British Columbians who are still looking for an effective, elected and accountable Senate. Our Conservative government believes that change in the Senate is long overdue, and we’re committed to making it happen with or without the support of the opposition. Mark Strahl, Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP

of new ownership at Manning Park, strength in our tourism sector with destination accommodations such as the Kw’o:kw’e:hala Eco Vacation retreat reporting pre-2008 activity, and active recruitment efforts from local employers such as Nestle Waters, Hope Machine Shop, and Webco are testament to our local economy’s strength. AdvantageHOPE continues to be part of a greater community effort to transition to a new age of growth. We are fortunate to have excellent Tyler partners such as loMattheis cal real estate agents and businesses constantly marketing our benefits to current and future residents, and proud to offer contributions from our efforts such as the Retail and Industrial Market Studies which are now regularly requested on our website and in person. One of our key roles has been to provide data and assurance to the enthusiasm of our residents and to potential investors, and we continue to do so. Moving forward, AdvantageHOPE will continue to be a tireless advocate for new business, existing business, smart planning, and thoughtful growth. As many of you may have heard, I will not be a part of those continuing efforts; my path is leading to the East Coast where our children will be closer to one set of grand-

parents. Based on my experience here over the past 2.5 years, I am confident that similar paths will lead many other families to this community to enjoy their own families and the many advantages of Hope. Our committed volunteers and partners are continuing the work and a transition plan is underway. Hope will be represented at a trade show in Puyallup, Wash. June 1-2, the “Gateway to the Skagit” project, in collaboration with Pathway Partners and the Skagit Environmental Endowment Fund, is gaining steam, a tax revitalization bylaw is expected to be launched this year, and new economic development videos are planned for launch in 2013 with the support of the federal government. Watch or our Facebook page to stay up to date with that and many other activities going forward. Thank you for the opportunity to share life and community with you.

Businesses must constantly adapt to stay competitive in and relevant to their markets. Thoughtful changes to price, inventory, suppliers, hours of operation, and even core offerings are often required for businesses to stay relevant and profitable. Similarly, AdvantageHOPE has moved to an office in district hall. Mindful of tight financial times and with an eye toward maximizing efficiency and service delivery, this move allows the district to realize 4.5 per cent cost savings in the economic development budget, provide better service to clients who now can receive information from AdvantageHOPE and district services in the same building, as well as the ability for AdvantageHOPE to work even more efficiently on joint projects with district staff. One of the immediate benefits of this move is an even more unified approach to community branding. As phase one comes to a close, closer collaboration will ensure consistent and effective messaging to current and new residents, potential businesses, and our neighbours. This will enable us to more effectively realize our core message, and achieve continued success. I am convinced that Hope’s future is a bright spot in the Fraser Valley; it will continue to be a place that people want to be, and inspire those same people to create their own job, or seek employment that enables them to reside here.

The 26Th annual BC ChilDren’s hOsPiTal’s MiraCle WeekenD

BC Children’s Hospital helps kids get care closer to home BC Children’s Hospital has played a big role in Kaitlyn Morovic’s life. The three-yearold was born with Down syndrome and two holes in her heart, and spent the first six weeks of her life in the hospital. Her mother Heather still raves about the care Kaitlyn receives at Children’s while also celebrating the fact that she now has what she calls her “direct link” to BC Children’s in the form of Richmond-based pediatrician Dr. Erik Swartz. “Dr. Swartz has expertise in Kaitlyn’s condition and everything that’s secondary to it,” Morovic says. “Although Children’s is just 20 minutes away, it’s great to be able to get an appointment quickly with Dr. Swartz, and he’s just a few minutes from home.” Swartz works in the General Pediatrics Clinic, which is part of the Child Health Centre at Richmond Hospital. The Child Health Centre was established with $800,000 in support from Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital aimed at ensuring all children in BC have access to a consistent standard of care no matter where in the province they live. The centre is also home to the Early Childhood Mental Health Program and the Noakes Primary Care Maternity Clinic. “The fact that Kaitlyn is able to receive specialized care so close to home is exactly

what we’re looking for,” says Dr. Maureen O’Donnell, executive director of Child Health BC. Child Health BC’s activities took off after Overwaitea Food Group became the lead benefactor with a pledge of $20 million in support in 2007. TELUS and Scotiabank later made gifts of $5 million and $1 million, respectively. This support had an immediate impact, says O’Donnell. Pediatric clinics established with Child Health BC’s support in Nanaimo and Prince George have thousands of patient visits annually; additional travelling clinics are staffed by BC Children’s caregivers in communities across the province; and over 1,000 health professionals have participated in Child Health BC’s workshops. O’Donnell credits Overwaitea Food Group’s donation with Child Health BC’s growing reach across the province, noting that it’s a perfect fit for an organization with a presence in so many BC communities. Overwaitea Food Group President Darrell Jones agrees. “We’re committed to the health and wellness of kids and families in BC,” says Jones. “We’ve been proud to support BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades – and with the help of our communities, we’ve contributed millions of dollars toward hospital improvement projects,

advocacy programs and important research initiatives. We’re grateful for the amazing support of our local communities, team members, customers and supplier partners who have all played a key role in making this fundraising success possible.” Child Health BC is part of a larger transformation in the way BC’s children receive care, says Larry Gold, president of BC Children’s Hospital and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. The transformation also includes the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. “We want to ensure children have access to a consistent standard of care, whether they live in Smithers, Campbell River or Castlegar; and there will always be children who need care that’s only available in a children’s hospital,” says Gold. BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has raised close to $170 million, including Overwaitea Food Group’s gift and $25 million from Teck Resources Limited, in its $200-million capital campaign to support construction of the new hospital and Child Health BC. Gold says that the new hospital, which will open in 2018, will be family-friendly, making it easier for families from outside the Lower Mainland to remain with their children. Beyond the money being raised for the new hospital and Child Health BC, Gold says the hospital also counts on donations of about $14 million a year to support research, equipment purchases and training. On June 1 and 2 BC Children’s Hospital Foundation will hold its annual Miracle Weekend celebration on Global BC, to raise the millions the hospital needs to cover its urgent annual needs. “Every year people from across the province make donations in support of the hospital and it makes a huge difference,” says Gold. “Kaitlyn Morovic is proof of that.” Heather Morovic says she’s grateful for both the care Kaitlyn receives at BC Children’s and the support she gets on a regular basis from Dr. Swartz. “He just gets it,” she says. “And Kaitlyn is doing fantastic. She’s walking and trying hard to talk, and she certainly knows how to pull on the heart strings. With BC Children’s and Dr. Swartz on our side, we couldn’t ask for a better support team.”

BC Children’s Hospital treated over 81,000 children last year. Approximately 67 per cent of those children came from outside the City of Vancouver.

JUNE 1 & 2, 2013 On June 1 and 2, tune in to Miracle Weekend, broadcast live from BC Children’s Hospital, on Global BC from 7:00pm on Saturday, June 1 until 5:30pm on Sunday, June 2 The 26th annual BC Children’s Hospital’s Miracle Weekend is a two-day celebration that showcases the best of BC Children’s Hospital: patients, their families, caregivers and supporters who come from every corner of BC. BC Children’s Hospital receives over 200,000 visits from patients from across the province every year. Donations help the hospital deliver the best in care every day, and are helping to prepare for the future by supporting the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital and better access to care for children in or close to their home communities. Please support BC Children’s Hospital.

Donate at or call 1-888-663-3033

At the Overwaitea Food Group, we’re very proud of our longstanding commitment to investing in the health of kids and their families. We’re grateful to everyone who supports us in this effort. Our team members, customers and suppliers have all played a key role in our fundraising success over the years. We’ve been supporting BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades, and we’ve raised millions of dollars in support of capital improvement projects, important research initiatives and advocacy programs designed to help keep our kids safe by reducing preventable injuries. In 2007, we made a $20 million pledge to support Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital that helps get kids in BC get the care they need, closer to home. Since then, we’ve raised more than $10.7 million toward our goal, and Child Health BC has been able to put this concept into action in a number of communities throughout BC. We are grateful for the amazing commitment and fund raising efforts driven by OFG team members who encourage the generosity of our customers and suppliers.

Rallycross event coming to Hope Sports Bowl Barry Stewart Hope Standard

Local motorsport fans are in for a treat on June 9 when the West Coast Rally Association brings its rallycross event back to town. What’s more: for $50.00, licenced drivers can take part in the racing. (If you’re driving your mom’s car, make sure you bring written permission.) There’s no charge for spectators at the event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the sports bowl behind the Hope Arena. If you’re new to the sport of rallycross but would still like to register the top local time, this could be your best opportunity. Hope resident Taisto Heinonen — a fivetime Canadian Rally and threetime North American Cup champion — will be away on a cruise, so he won’t be competing in his 1986 Toyota MR2. Heinonen, who is a WCRA member said, “If you have a car, you can enter. We have ordinary guys off the street — as long as they have an approved helmet and standard seat belts.” Your car also has to be streetlegal and insured. Complete rules are available at the club’s website, “There are a lot of standard cars,” said Heinonen. “Some are frontwheel drive, some rear-wheel and others are four-wheel drive, such as Subarus and Audis.” Competition classes are based on the number of driving axles and the tires used. What is rallycross? Those who have seen the four-wheel drive competitions in the sports bowl may have visions of mud pits, table top jumps and the big hill. Nope. Mom’s Malibu could handle this. Heinonen explained that the flat parts of the bowl are used, with pylons marking out the course. It could be a meandering course, or sometimes a figure-eight. No worries on the figure-eight... there’s only one racer at a time. Heinonen figured is usually takes him around a minute-thirty to complete a rallycross run. Depending on the weather, it could be dusty or muddy — but it will always be a bit rocky and more rutty as the day goes on. “You get to walk the course first,” said Heinonen, “to help you mem-


Jason Bailey directs his 1968 Saab 96 Deluxe around the rallycross course, at the May 11 event in the Hope Sports Bowl. Racers will back in Hope on June 9 — and drivers from Hope are welcome to join in. Cars must be street legal and insured and drivers must wear an approved helmet.

orize the turns. Most of it is in first and second gear, so there’s more talent in the turns and staying on the course.” Poke a pylon or run off course and you gain time penalties, or get a disqualification on that run. Heinonen said there’s plenty of seating for spectators on the hillsides facing the sports bowl. There’s also a viewing area on the gravel road at the top. “All the cars start up there, so people can walk around and look at them,” said the Finnish-born Heinonen. Racing groups are called down for their event and they use Sixth Avenue and Hudson Bay Street to get to the track and back.

“Sometimes, we’ll have 12 or 14 cars entered, or up to 25,” said Heinonen. “They come from Prince George, Kamloops, Kelowna, the Lower Mainland and Washington state. “They usually get four runs each in the morning, then we change the course for the afternoon and they do four runs again.” Club member Darsi Sullivan is helping organize the rallycross, but she’s also involved in a road rally, which begins and ends in Hope on the June 15-16 weekend. “What you usually see on TV is called a stage rally,” she said. This one is called a TSD, or time-speeddistance rally. It’s all on public

roads... about 80 per cent of them gravel... and all at below posted speed limits. “It’s approximately 500 kilometres long and we have a fuel stop in Merritt. We’re gathering at Rolly’s restaurant, from 5-9 on Saturday night, then arriving back there on Sunday morning at around seven,” said Sullivan. “It’s one of the longest days and shortest nights of the year — but most of it will be done in the dark.” If you’ve got the money for fuel — and the $90 entry fee — this could be a good starting point for road rally novices. “You can absolutely come out and do it in your daily driver car,”

said Sullivan. “No helmets are required, though the car must be insured. If you can read and follow directions, you could do it.” Better yet: bring a literate friend to be your navigator. Everybody gets a number badge for their car and a route book, which could have 20 pages or more of textual instructions and a few diagrams for intersections, explained Sullivan. “You follow the route and try to arrive at the check points exactly on-time, to get the lowest amount of points,” said Sullivan. “Lowest points win, like in golf.”

Michaud, Dennis Leroy (Froggy) December 11, 1939 - May 21, 2013 Dennis passed peacefully at Eagle Ridge Hospital, Port Moody with his brother, Dale at his side. Predeceased by his loving parents, Clement and Evelyn. Survived by loving sisters, Doreen(Ed), Donna, Denise(Paul), loving brothers, Donnie(Val), Dale(Lindsay), David(Lorelie), Darryl(Pat) and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Dennis was born in Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan. Before he turned one, the family moved to Vancouver where he grew up and attended school. Dennis, nicknamed Froggy by his friends, was a fun-loving, easy going guy who loved people, enjoyed being with family and friends. He had a good sense of humor. Telling stories and jokes, having a good laugh, always entertaining with his many card tricks. He could be feisty and enjoyed a good debate. He was interested in and a fan of all sports. He played handball and squash in his younger years. Played and coached men’s softball. Attended Vancouver Canadians games at Nat Bailey Stadium, horse racing at Hastings Park, played and watched golf, participated in NFL football pools, a B.C. Lions fan, followed hockey and soccer. He liked the outdoors and tanning on sunny days. He loved birds who he had as pets over the years. Dennis lived and spent time in around Hope and Yale, B.C. where some of his family and friends still live. Dennis later moved to Port Moody where he enjoyed spending time with friends at the Manor and socializing at the Legion. Many there were like family to him. He did love and appreciate all his family and friends. A Celebration of Dennis’s Life will be held on Friday, June 7th 2:00 pm at the Port Moody Royal Canadian Legion #119, 2513 Clarke St., Port Moody, B.C. Donations may be made to the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation in his memory. He stills lives on in the hearts and minds, of the loving family and friends he left behind. 5/13w M30

ALLAN, Sandra Marion Elaine It is with deep regret that the family of Sandra Marion Elaine Allan (nee: Verbeck) report her death on Monday, May 27th, 2013 at Fraser Canyon Hospital. Sandy was born June 14th, 1956, the youngest daughter of Edythe Verbeck and the late Cyril (Cy) Verbeck. She married Don Allan on August 21, 1993. She leaves to mourn her loss her husband...Don Allan, her mother...Edythe Verbeck and her two sisters...Maureen Collis of Didsbury, Alberta and Janice Lynn Verbeck of Coquitlam, BC. Sandy was a graduate of Simon Fraser University and held teaching positions for 21 years within the Fraser Canyon School District at Boston Bar, Yale and Hope. A diagnosis of Lupus and eventually of Scleroderma in 1997 necessitated her resigning her teaching position in June 1999. Scleroderma is an incurable auto-immune disease which attacks the major organs - the heart, the lungs, etc. During the intervening years, Sandy enjoyed gardening, reading and designing and making her greeting cards. She also had a great affection for her dogs, Shelties; taking great pride in their achievements when they won Championships at dog shows in the Fraser Valley. Sandy also enjoyed her annual month at the family cottage on Green Lake in the Cariboo. She so enjoyed her many encounters with the wildlife that exists in that area. But most of all she cared deeply for her many friends who gave her such support during the difficult years. Her memorial service will be held in Grace Baptist Church on Saturday, June 1st at 2 pm. with Pastor Jeff Kuhn officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Scleroderma Association of B.C. c/o Box 218, Delta, BC V4K 3N7

We regret to announce the passing of Terry Smith of Hope BC. Terry is survived by his wife Marie, children; Scott (Jessica), Rachel (Mark), brothers; Garry and Paul of Hamilton Ontario, and several nieces and nephews. Terry was pre-deceased by his parents Annie Jane and Stanley Smith of Hamilton Ontario. Memorial Service will be held on Saturday June 1, 2013 at 1pm at the Hope legion on Fort Street.




THANK YOU On behalf of the late Sandy Allan; Don Allan and the Verbeck family wish to thank Pastor Jeff Kuhn, Dr. Josh Greggain, Dr. Larry Kehler and Dr. Eartha Nanton as well as the nursing staff at the Fraser Canyon Hospital; Sandy, Charmaine, Len, Dave, Asher, Grace and Tracey to name but a few.
