Relay for Life draws out walkers and runners in Harrison Hot Springs Jessica Peters THE OBSERVER

More than 100 people took part in the Relay for Life on Saturday night in Harrison Hot Springs. There were 11 teams of 10 people making the 12 hour trek around the lagoon, beginning at 7 p.m. and wrapping up at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning. Each team raised money toward the Canadian Cancer Society, bringing the total so far to more than $33,500. Organizer Tim Dixon said the number is still rising, as donors are welcome to continue pledging their support. This year marked 75 years for the CCS, but was the second year the popular relay was held in

Harrison Hot Springs. Much like last year, the weather was beautiful for the duration of the relay, providing for beautiful scenery for the walkers and runners throughout the night. Each relay begins with a 'survivor's walk' where those who have battled cancer or are in treatment currently are invited to take the first lap. This year, many local familiar faces were among the survivor's, both as long-time survivors, multiple survivors and those currently in treatment. Among them was Lilee-Jean Putt, whose father grew up in Agassiz and whose family still resides here. Lilee-Jean is currently in treatment for an aggres-

sive form of brain cancer, and her mother is chronicling their story online through the Love for Lilee website. Her story has earned much media coverage and the tough three year old girl has captured the hearts of many in the Fraser Valley. A distinctive feature of the Harrison Relay is the setting, and the paper bag luminaries that line the walk along the lagoon. This year, more than 200 luminaries were lit, adding to the beauty of the scenic walk, but also highlighting the need for a cure. Each luminary costs $5, and each is decorated in honour of someone who lost their life to cancer, or who is currently in

treatment. They are lit after dark, and after the entertainment is over. This year, local entertainer Todd Richard lent a hand both as emcee and singer, along with performers Matthew Cheverie, Andrew Christopher and The Cattails. Two members of the Harrison Highlanders piped the walkers along following the light of the luminaries. To make a donation, visit www. relaybc.ca and search for Harrison Hot Springs.

Save The HSS librarian demands apology; trustee stands by his concerns Dates ... Jessica Peters THE OBSERVER

When teacher-librarian Lenora Poulin gave her presentation to the school board two weeks ago, she walked away feeling confident, happy and proud to be in charge of Hope secondary’s library. But when she heard what was said about her after leaving that meeting, those strong feelings of pride turned to anger. Poulin found out that later in the regular board meeting, Trustee Tom Hendrickson suggested she is a “book burner” for taking out certain titles, most notably older material that refers to First Nation people as savages and AIDS as a “gay people’s problem.” Hendrickson did not raise any questions with Poulin while she was in attendance, but board meetings are audio recorded and put online for public consumption. In the May 15 meeting, Hendrickson is heard saying he has a problem with people who “burn books” and made a motion to the board to consider having someone from senior staff look at the material Poulin removed from the collection. That comment, and others, prompted Poulin to return to school board and officially address Hendrickson’s comments. She did so on Tuesday night, at the board’s meeting at Kent elementary school. Poulin took the floor for about a half hour, reading a letter outlining her extensive education background and training and her 20 year history as an educator in the Fraser Cascade School District. She also expressed her shock at being questioned on her process of weeding HSS’s library collection. “I literally yelled out (while listening to the audio) ‘I am not a book burner,’” she told the board. She said the comments Hendrickson made

the OCP, and are looking for feedback from residents and business owners regarding every aspect of life in the area. The entire process will take about a year, Atva said Tuesday. Currently they are moving into Phase 2 of the process, creating the draft OCP. The OCP will look at how the community will manage growth and

development through to 2040. An OCP is a guideline for growth, she said, and the District is looking at certain pieces of land that are being considered for development. While some people are giving feedback so far that growth should be in the hillsides, others are saying they want

to retain their farming community’s roots. Growth is difficult in the District, Atva pointed out, because of the proximity to farmland. “Anywhere you go is going to be in the ALR, so that’s not an easy decision either,” she said. OCP In a Week, is the second District-to -community outreach initiative. The first was

The District of Kent continued looking for public input into community planning through a series of workshops held throughout the week. Nine collaborative events were planned over three days, called OCP In A Week. They included varied topics such as agriculture, preliminary land use, planning for youth, amenities, transportation and the environment. On Tuesday, the District held an OCP Picnic in the Park workshop at Pioneer Park, with Urban Systems as hosts. Tina Atva, from Urban Systems, said the current Official Community Plan “is pretty good, but could be more user friendly, a little more graphic and little clearer in areas.” The District hired Urban Systems to facilitate the discussion around

a series of coffee house chats, of which about 40 people took in. There is also an online place to communicate with the District and Urban Systems, called PlaceSpeak. To provide input, anyone is also invited to contact Darcey Kohuch, Director of Development Services at 604796-2235 or dkohuch@ district.kent.bc.ca.

Opinion

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Make it a safe summer Summer weather is here, and while our minds may be drifting toward the beach, our brains need to be focused on safety. It's as predictable as the tide. Every summer, the number of preventable accidents and deaths out on the water rise. While the seasonal increase may seem like a simple yet unfortunate side effect of the masses flocking to our lakes and rivers, it's high time those numbers decrease. We're smart enough. We all know the rules and even for those who don't, the information is out there — as close as your nearest smart phone. Last week was the North American Safe Boating Awareness week, a time devoted to educating the public about

the many dangers of the water. But those lessons need to go on all year long. On average, 125 people die every year in boating deaths, in Canada alone. In recent years, some of those deaths have happened right here in our backyard. So, we say it again. Be safe this summer. Encourage your friends and family to be safe. Inform tourists and visiting friends that dangers lurk in that natural beauty. And remember the five key safety tips: Wear a lifejacket. Don't drink and boat. Take a safe boating course. And ensure that you and your vessel are prepared before casting off. Your life depends on it.

LAST WEEK WE ASKED:

Have you suffered from depression in your life? Here’s how you responded: Yes 91% No 9%

Enbridge pipeline isn’t dead yet B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – One of Premier Christy Clark’s first tasks of the new term will be to resume trade talks with Alberta and Saskatchewan. Several daunting tasks await. Clark must repair relations with Alberta Premier Alison Redford after B.C.’s theatrics over oil pipelines before the election, and prepare for the results of a federal environmental review of the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal in the fall. Some people were surprised on Friday when the B.C. government released its final written submission to the federal environmental review panel on Northern Gateway. It was widely interpreted as B.C.’s outright

rejection of the project, but it’s not as simple as that. Clark and B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake signalled several times before the election that they were not getting the answers they wanted from Enbridge. But they stuck to the principle that the hearings must be completed. The NDP repeated for months that the B.C. Liberal government had forfeited its own review and handed jurisdiction over the environmental assessment to Ottawa. In fact, a pipeline that runs across two provinces is by definition a matter of federal jurisdiction. B.C. could have held its own parallel set of hearings, which was the NDP’s stated preference, but in no circumstance does the province have a veto. And both the B.C. Liberal government and Enbridge were careful to leave the door open for further talks. A closer reading of their comments shows that the key

difference at this stage is one of timing. “The panel must determine if it is appropriate to grant a certificate for the project as currently proposed on the basis of a promise to do more study and planning

“A closer reading of their comments shows that the key difference at this stage is one of timing.” after the certificate is granted,” Lake said. “Our government does not believe that a certificate should be granted before these important questions are answered.” According to Enbridge executive Janet Holder, those important questions can’t all be answered until the hearings are over. The company maintains that every river crossing and spill response plan can’t be done in detail during

the two-year hearings. B.C.’s final submission runs to nearly 100 pages. It goes into detail on the inconsistencies and unanswered questions on such vital topics as whether diluted bitumen can sink in water. In short, the province argues that it can  sink  if the oil is in fresh water, or if it is  exposed to weathering so lighter fractions evaporate, or if it is mixed with sediments that increase its density. These are pertinent conditions if heavy oil were to leak into a river in springtime, when water runs fast and cold and brown with sediment. Then there are the obstacles presented by responding to a spill in remote wilderness and heavy snow. Given both provincial and aboriginal opposition in B.C., the Enbridge pipeline is unlikely to be imposed, and last week Conservative cabinet minister James Moore clearly ruled that out. The B.C. government has OFFICE HOURS Tues.-Fri. 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Closed Sat., Sun., & Mon.

consistently maintained that the current project does not meet Clark’s often-repeated five conditions, including the vaguely defined “fair share” of revenues, and Moore said the federal government agrees with those conditions. The B.C. government has to face some other uncomfortable realities as well. If heavy oil pipelines are such a risk, how does B.C. manage the one that has stretched across remote and populated areas for 60 years? Does the government take a stand against new pipelines, and then watch as rail cars full of heavy oil cross those same rivers? No permit is required for that, and in fact there are more hazardous materials than oil moving by rail and road across the province today.

Mailbag Time to save precious farmland Our mayor and councillors have invited all of us to participate and comment on the new proposals for an official community plan. I have lived in Agassiz since 1972, longer than the agricultural land reserve has been in force, and have lived on my present address for 31 years. Therefore, I am somewhat informed about our community, and I want to make some comments about the proposals. Entering our town welcoming signs greet visitors. "You are now entering Farm Country" and "Experience the rich diversity of our rural home." Personally my favoured, unfortunately by now slightly out of favour, expression still found there is "Corn Capital of BC." Agassiz, without the outlying areas, I am told, encompasses roughly 6,000 acres and that includes the present town site. Suggestions are now being brought forward to remove in the next 27 years some 400 acres of prime farmland. More than half of this land would be designated commercial and industrial. Wold the monikers mentioned above still apply? In the past, Kent councils took great care to concentrate the urban core of commercial and residential sectors, and not allow as happened in so many other communities urban sprawl to dictate growth. Is this direction no longer sacrosanct with a 160-acre industrial park four kilometres out of town site? Do we really want to rob our next generation of precious irreplaceable farmland for highway-commercial away from the town core, when over the last 40 years the commercial sector along Pioneer Avenue east and west has languished, and property owners have a most difficult time to rent empty storefronts?

Is our community really being served by removing substantial parcels of top of the line farmland to create more housing, when council has embarked on permitting residential developments on Mount Woodside? Do we really need a huge influx of new residents just taking advantage of our much lower real estate prices in comparison to greater Vancouver? We all know that the narrow and busy Agassiz-Rosedale bridge is getting older and more and more dangerous. It has neither pedestrian or bicycle path. Could this bridge handle a substantial increase in traffic, and if not, would Kent council feel strong enough to force the provincial government to replace it? This proposed official community plan is designed to last 27 years. What will happen after 2040? Will another large chunk of farmland be removed? What will happen in a hundred years? Will our descendants still require food? Will they still be able to depend for their survival on California produce? Will they thank our generation for their shortsighted destruction of our agricultural heritage? Must it be "Apres nous la deluge!"? Let's take the example of the big urban centre of Richmond who has finally decided that every acre of still existing farmland there must be protected. It is crucial that we all get involved. Who are better judges, we the people who call this our home, or some outsider company, hired by the municipality to decide our community's future? May we hope that our municipal council, where three out of four councillors have an extensive agricultural background, will be in total favour to protect and save all our precious farmland?

Family finding ways to enjoy every day in face of serious illness Late last fall, there was a knock on my front door and when I opened it and looked down, there stood tiny little Lilee-Jean,  who at that point was a few months shy of her second birthday. She was with her mom and her great grandma, who is a neighbour of ours.

Is pleased to welcome: Dr. Inna Fadyeyeva, Family Practice Physician Starting on August 2, 2013 Dr. Fadyeyeva joins the team: Dr. Wayne Phimister, Family Practice Physician Sean Young, Family Nurse Practitioner Marie Weatherby, Family Nurse Practitioner Sue Lawrence, Family Nurse Practitioner Robert Stam, Community Resource Nurse Susan Hutcheon, Dietician Carol Neilsen, Respiratory Therapist Darlene, Reagen, Cherie and Jennifer - Medical Office Staff Thank you to Dr. Olivia Tseng who will be leaving We look forward to continuing to provide a comprehensive community health service in the Agassiz / Harrison area and we are welcoming new patients at this time.

As I had read a number of things about LJ in the newspaper and on social media, I had expressed an interest in meeting her, as like others, her story had captured my heart. She is every bit as precious in person as she is in the photos you see of her and she looked up at me, gave me a big smile and said “hello”. This is not another story of Lilee-Jean’s journey with Glioblastoma but more a testament to how a community can come together and help someone who is fighting such a brave fight. In viewing Lilee-Jean’s Facebook page and her Mother Chelsey’s blog (www. loveforlilee.com), one cannot help but be in awe of Chelsey and how she is fighting for the life of her daughter with such grace, dignity and strength. Her words and thoughts belie the strength that she possesses and her struggle to try and keep her daughter’s life “normal” for the time that she has left with her. I was also deeply moved by those who

Guest column have given generously so that Lilee-Jean can enjoy every possible moment with her family. I do not know if these companies, and the people in them, realize how large an impact they have had on Chelsey and Lilee’s life. I read of how on more than one occasion, Columbia Cabinets  has assisted with expenses and how just a few months ago, they sent the family to Hawaii for a week so that they could cherish the time they have together and continue to make more precious memories. I called Columbia Cabinets to ask if it would be okay for me to mention them as I wrote this but also, I was curious as to the connection they had

with Lilee-Jean. I was astonished to hear that there was no connection, they had heard her story and quite simply, were moved to help in any way they could. Dave Kish, GM of Columbia Cabinets said “Lilee-Jean came for a visit and we fell in love. I pray for her every night. There are no words to explain. She is very close to all our hearts.”   Countless other organizations have done wonderful things – Jim’s Pizza in Chilliwack has twice donated a percentage of pizza sales, others have organized bottle drives, donated a percentage of sales commissions, donated a product or service, all in the hopes of easing the burden for this young family. LJ’s grandmother said, in an email to me, “the fundraisers that people have started, the outpouring of love and desire to help in some way is truly heartwarming, and incredibly helpful as fundraised money is Chelsey’s only income. It allows her to just live each day with her little girl, experience all the things that other moms of young toddlers experience. It allows Lilee to stay at her house, the only home she’s known. Our gratitude for this is beyond words”. Lilee-Jean’s great grandmother told  me “LJ has brought out the best in so many people, and taught so many so much” – all of this in a few short years of living. Chelsey recently wrote on her blog “Andrew and I have compiled a realistic, relatively short and doable list, not only to fill Lilee-Jean’s life to the brim with love, laugh-

ter and magic but to keep ourselves focused on our now and not our later. We have chosen to call it “Dancing In The Rain” instead of a “bucket list” for obvious reasons, and if time allows, we will hopefully be adding to it as we cross things off.” As I reviewed the items on the list, I wondered at how many of us would take those very things for granted and not realize what a privilege it is to have the gift of time with your child.   Lilee-Jean continues to have palliative chemotherapy every other week in the hope that it will buy her some more time with her family. As you read this, please take a moment to log onto Chelsey’s blog and if you are able to contribute in some small part to the “Dancing In the Rain” list for this precious little girl, please do so as so many others have done already.   “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”  –Vivian Greene *** In the past few days since I began writing this, the response to their “Dancing in the Rain” list has been truly overwhelming and offers of assistance quickly came pouring in. It is the hope of the family that this story may inspire others to reach out and help another family with their “Dancing in the Rain” list, as many others need love and support to help them through a difficult period in their lives.    Christine Lane is the Director of Sales and Marketing at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre in Abbotsford

Fraser River swimmer subject of a new book

Fin Donnelly saw length of mighty river twice BLACK PRESS

Those of us living within the drainage of British Columbia’s most significant watershed will have a particular affinity for the book Fin’s Swim: 21 Days on the Fraser River by Mayne Island author Helen O’Brian. The Fraser and its tributaries drain a quarter of the province and provide a living conduit between the Pacific Ocean and the myriad sources that make up this river system. Essentially the ecological health of the Fraser and wellbeing of this great swath of the province go hand in hand. O’Brian says Fin Donnelly swam the length of the Fraser River twice, from Tete Jaune Cache to its mouth in 1995 and 2000, to draw attention to the vulnerability and precarious state of the river. However, she felt the events weren’t sufficiently well documented. With Fin’s Swim, O’Brian has done something about that and more. The author says she got inspired to write the book, geared to intermediate learners and up, when she spent five wet days on the Middle Fraser in 2004 traveling with a group of academics from Soda Creek to Big Bar Ranch. On that trip she says memories of her favourite childhood book, Paddle-to-the-Sea kept coming back to her. In Paddle-to-the-Sea, author Holling Clancy Holling takes the read-

Fin Donnelly helps push off a canoe when his Rivershed Society Sustainable Living Leadership Program stopped at Kilby Provincial Park last year.

er on an epic journey through all five Great Lakes, down the St. Lawrence River to the Atlantic Ocean from the perspective of a toy canoe set adrift from the tip of Lake Superior. She says the reader is introduced to the minutiae of habitats and ecosystems that make up the great waterway. She felt inspired to do the same thing for the Fraser, using Donnelly’s swim as an anchor point to tell about the Fraser. “I was hoping he might be the equivalent of the little carved canoe in Paddleto-the-Sea.� O’Brian contacted Fin after her five-day river experience, says not only was his response enthusiastic, but he invited her to join him the following summer on the River-

shed Society’s Sustainable Living Leadership Program for young people. “Together we traveled by kayak, raft and canoe from Tete Jaune Cache to Jericho Beach,� she says. O’Brian says when Donnelly first embarked on his swimming marathon down the Fraser in 1995, he was 29 years old. Her book Fin’s Swim draws from Donnelly’s journal notes from that trip as well as from her own experiences with the Rivershed Society group in 2005. “The book was a long time coming,� admits O’Brian, a celebrated storyteller and former director of the Vancouver Storytelling Festival. She says Fin Donnelly’s quest was for the health of the Fraser, not his personal glory.

She inserted lots of factual information about the river and historic events that have occurred along the watercourse over the centuries. She colours the narrative with sidebar excerpts from Simon Fraser’s 1808 journal, and speaks of the pictographs and petroglyphs found on rock faces along the way. She uses artistic license to describe the misdeed of the colonial government in the trial and hanging of five Tsilhqot’in war chiefs in 1864, beside the river at Quesnel. She talks of other calamities like train wrecks of twisted metal still evident at the base of canyon walls further downstream. For more information about the book, visit www.finsswim.ca.

It attacks the nerve cells that communicate from the brain to the voluntary muscles in the body. When they fail to receive messages, the muscles gradually become paralyzed leaving the person unable to move or speak.

Poulin also called Hendrickson homophobic, for comments on the audio recording she interpreted to relate to lesbian and gay material within the library. In the recording, Hendrickson refers to “those� books and talks about the new discriminatory lan-

guage policy in the school district. Poulin demanded an apology for his comments and accusations. Hendrickson took equal time to respond to Poulin, saying: “If my remarks offended you, I publicly apologize for that.

It was certainly not intentional.� He said his role on the school board is to question things, rather than be a “rubber stamp.� He explained that when he heard books were being removed from the library because of the potentially offensive or inaccurate content within them, that twigged a reaction in him. But he said his way with words is often very blunt. “I’m not in any way suggesting you’re a bookburning Hitler,� Hendrickson said. He said he doesn’t want to see society erase the past, or whitewash history. Rather, he’d like to see these old books set apart with a distinction: “Books including historical embarrassments� that could be used “as learning tools for years to come.� Books have been destroyed all through history, he said, from the Aztecs and churches, to Hitler and Stalin, to suit those in power at the time. “All of us could take it upon ourselves to verse ourselves in our past history,� he added. Hendrickson did not clearly respond to being called homophobic. He also stated that he has a right to his opinion, and that the board is there to disagree with him, and that open discussion is part of the decision making process for the board. “We are not here to rubber stamp a thing,� he said, and since the board disagreed with him, his motion to have Poulin’s work double checked by senior staff was defeated at the May 15 meeting. “You can put whatever books you want in there, and I can disagree,� he said.
