Driver arrested following Harrison crash Jessica Peters Black Press

Three people from an Abbotsford family are recovering from a bizarre crash in Harrison Hot Springs on the weekend. The incident occurred at about 1:20 p.m. Sunday, at the main intersection along the beach front, where Hot Springs Road meets Esplanade. RCMP said on Monday morning they were still trying to piece together what happened. A family of four was crossing the intersection at the crowded plaza.

A fresh-air concert was taking place just metres away, up on the grassy promenade, as part of the Harrison Festival of the Arts. A small car stopped to let the pedestrians pass, but was reportedly rear ended by a Toyota SUV. The SUV then drove over the car, became airborne, and ended up in the concrete plaza. Hundreds of people were in the area at the time, and either witnessed or heard the crash. Many rushed to the scene to investigate. While there was the potential for chaos, Agassiz RCMP Stuart Falebrinza said “a

lot of people were there doing all the right things until the emergency responders could arrive.” He confirmed the driver of the SUV, a 27-year-old man, was arrested at the scene and they are proceeding with a charge of impaired driving causing bodily harm. Of the three victims, he said they are recovering from their injuries, and that the father, 51, will need surgery. The mother, 37, has serious injuries “but is doing all right.” The couple’s son, 13, was also

hit, but is recovering, Falebrinza said. The couple’s 16 year old son managed to jump out of the way of the vehicles. He said police are still trying to determine the exact details of the crash. While there were many witnesses, “everyone sees things slightly differently.” “But we have some really good evidence,” he said. “With several hundred people reported to be in the area, we are thankful that the family survived and no one else was injured or killed,” added Const. Cynthia Kershaw.

Ava Vanderstarren, 21, called it a “surreal” experience to be crowned Miss BC 2013 last week. The GWG grad, who grew up in Chilliwack, said she “never dreamed” she would one day be participating in a beauty pageant. “It’s not something I thought I would ever do. “There are a lot of stereotypes, and many women have body issues,” she tells The Progress. But this one was a little different. Vanderstarren said she was happy to discover during her interview that contestants are not measured solely on their looks or size, rather the Miss BC pageant puts an emphasis on healthy, natural beauty, self-esteem and confidence. So she thought it over. “I decided to give it a shot,” she says. “The focus was more on personal development and charity fundraising.” They weren’t even allowed to wear bikinis during the sports wear event, and most of the women dressed in outfits reflecting their favourite sport. Her sports wear sponsor, Arc’teryx, outfitted her in climbing and hiking gear since she once climbed the Swiss Alps while in Guides. She also had support from her main sponsor, Scarecrow Ink of Chilliwack. “It was all so overwhelming,” she says. Overall she enjoyed the whole experience, thanking supporters on her Facebook page after the win. In the end she was honoured

Special Series A four-part series explores living with mental illness Alina Konevski The Progress

Mental illness is the last frontier. Society has become relatively open about physical disabilities. It’s becoming open about developmental disabilities. But it’s rare that someone admits they have severe depression. Or bipolar disorder. Or paranoid schizophrenia. Chilliwack is home to thousands of people who struggle with their mental health, who are captured by the involuntary twists and turns of their restless minds. What’s key is separating the person from the illness. As Eric Hunken, a man with bipolar and borderline personality disorder in Chilliwack, said: “It’s just an illness, and it’s not our whole life. It’s just something that affects our life.” Support structures for people battling various mental illnesses are notably few in Chilliwack. The handful of psychiatrists have hundreds of patients each; the few case workers at the mental health unit have a total of about 900 clients. There are no open support groups, and a lot of stigma. Chances are, you know someone who is struggling. Statistics would suggest that 8,500 people in Chilliwack have depression (that’s 1 in 10); 2,210 have bipolar disorder; 850 have schizophrenia. As adults try to recover, the reality is that chronic poverty haunts people with a mental illness in our community. It is difficult to hold down a job, and decent housing is hard to find on the governmental $906 a month persons with disabilities allowance. Family and friends can also fall away when one admits their mental health isn’t stable. The result is that people with mental illness generally keep it to themselves. And when their symptoms and the realities of making ends meet overpower them, they tilt toward the fringes of Chilliwack society. You might see them on the street, or in emergency shelters. They might purchase drugs, or make desperate calls to the police. In this four-part series, you’ll get meet several people living with mental illness in Chilliwack, and how they balance recovery with the harsh realities of modern life. Join us over the coming weeks as The Progress explores related issues of housing, employment, social structures, and criminality.

Eric Hunken’s life has radically improved since moving into the Village, a supportive housing complex in Chilliwack. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Affordable housing key for mental health Alina Konevski The Progress

It’s a new life for Eric Hunken of Chilliwack. These days he speaks freely about his mental illness to police officers and nursing students, maintains several websites, and sits on the board of the Chilliwack Mental Health Advisory Committee. He drives around town on his electric scooter, eats right, and has quit smoking and drinking. An ex-addict, Hunken credits much of his radical change in lifestyle to finally living in a subsidized supportive housing complex in Chilliwack called the Village. The place has inspired tremendous recovery for the 58-yearold man whose latest suicide attempt three years ago had him committed in Chilliwack hospital’s psychiatric unit for a month. Hunken was diagnosed thirteen years ago with bipolar and borderline personality disorder. He describes the first as extreme shifts in mood, and the second as people not knowing who he was. He also has what psychiatrists term “suicidal ideation,” an almost obsessive preoccupation with suicide. During the 1980s and ‘90s, Hunken installed computer servers in downtown Vancouver as a network systems specialist. While his personal life was chaotic, he took home a decent salary and was proud of his work. But there were days when colleagues didn’t recognize him. “They wouldn’t know who I was. Sometimes I would be really angry and difficult to get along with, and that could last for weeks on end. And then a week later I’d come back, and I’d be super cheerful, and happy, and everything would be wonderful,” he said. Hunken would also go through periods of

extreme activity, such as staying awake for a week feverishly grinding out creative projects before falling into a dead sleep to recover. And thoughts of suicide were never far off, ever since his first attempt at age 15. Life careened for the worst when he suffered soft tissue damage to his back from a car accident at 45 years old and received his mental illness diagnosis at the same time. To Hunken, the doctor’s prognosis sounded like a life sentence. “The one that diagnosed me said, get used to it, you’ll never work a day in your life again. Don’t even think about it. That’s why I got really depressed. I started using drugs, ‘cause I felt totally useless. Because I had been working fulltime since I was 15, 16, years old...That’s when I really got sick. I couldn’t handle things. I started trying to kill myself.” Hunken has been in the CGH psych ward three times for suicide attempts, where he received heavy doses of medication that primarily made him sleep. The psychiatric wing of the hospital looks much like other wards. Eight or so rooms, each hosting two or four hospital beds, leaf out from a tidy hallway in an outdated section of the Chilliwack hospital. The small ward is quiet, with calm staff who speak in even tones behind neutral expressions. The hallway leads to a large common room with round tables and padded chairs, which in turn connects to an outdoor patio space. But unlike other hospital wards, the groundlevel patio is enclosed by a floor-to-roof fence. While a couple of people sit quietly at a concrete table, one woman paces nearby, muttering to herself and occasionally calling out to anyone who looks in her direction. There are no hospital gowns, as patients wear their own clothes or ones borrowed from the ward’s secondhand

clothing closet. The psychiatric ward is for temporary emergency stays of five to seven days, where people such as Eric Hunken come in times of crisis. People are either released once a psychiatrist has granted permission, or check themselves out, depending on the case. Those who face a longer road to independent living may be transferred to Cedar Ridge. Located in a forgotten annex of the main hospital building, the long-term care institution is part of Chilliwack’s answer to the closure of Riverview Hospital. Between 1903 and 2012, thousands of people with mental health issues received treatment or lived at Riverview’s expansive red brick mansion in Port Coquitlam. The hospital was set up at a time when society’s relationship to the insane was custodial: house them, care for them, but they will probably never recover. Now, the emphasis at Cedar Ridge is on rehabilitating people so that they can live increasingly independent lives. Staff believe that all of the 20 current residents could learn to manage their illnesses well enough so as to move out of the institution and into housing complexes, such as the one where Eric Hunken lives, where people with mental illnesses lead independent lives but have the support of a staff on site. But Cedar Ridge staff say there is nowhere to send their patients. Chilliwack has 53 affordable housing units for adults with mental health issues, but likely over a thousand with mental illnesses who survive on the government’s persons with disabilities (PWD) allowance of $906 a month. “Without housing, they have nothing.

Boycott of farmed fish ramps up

presents 9TH ANNUAL

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Harrison Dragon Boat Regatta

Another rally to boycott farmed salmon is set for the Eagle Landing Walmart parking lot Wednesday at lunch. The Chilliwack chapter of the Salmon Feedlot Boycott has been asking grocery retailers like Walmart, Superstore, Safeway and Costco to remove open-pen Atlantic farmed salmon from their shelves because of perceived risks to human health and wild salmon stocks. The goal is to “empower consumers to make ethical choices” for their own well

being, for the health of the oceans, and for preservation of wild salmon, organizer Eddie Gardner said. Local boycott advocates formally requested that Walmart remove farmed salmon last winter with no official response from store management. Hence the rally set for July 10. Boycott participants will share handouts and encourage the public to join growing efforts to pressure federal and provincial governments to have open net feedlots removed from migration routes of wild salmon in 2013.

that the protestors have chosen to ignore the many studies done since then which show that all salmon, both farmed and wild, is healthy and nutritious and contains lower amounts of PCBs than many other common foods in our food supply, such as butter.” “The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration include farmed salmon in lists of seafood protein which are high in omega-3 oils and which should be consumed regularly by peo-

Rally organizers point to a study, comparing farmed and wild salmon, which is at: www. albany.edu/ihe/salmonstudy/ salmon_study.pdf But those who represent aquaculture interests refuted some of the claims being made by boycott members. “The single study being cited here is nearly 10 years out of date,” wrote Elizabeth Young, spokesperson for the BC Salmon Farmers Association, an industry group which represents most of the salmon farming companies in B.C. “It is disappointing to see

Furthering women’s rights and the rehabilitation of child soldiers are her personal goals during her Miss BC reign for 2013. Vanderstarren graduated with honours from the Acting for Film and TV program at Vancouver Film School, and has been in short films and on TV. The pressure to stay thin is relentless in the industry, but she says she considers her body to be in the “normal” range. She’s walked the runway in fashion shows including Vancouver Fashion Week: FW13, SS13, ECO Fashion Week 2013, VALT 2012, Arc’teryx: SS14, FW13 and in 2013 she pro-

duced her own charity fashion show. While modelling, she’s had professionals suggest she should lose weight. “That’s ridiculous. I never want to change my body to please someone else,” she said. “And I don’t think Photoshop should be used in magazines since there’s no way women can look like that. It’s a vicious cycle.” But instead of letting any of those issues get to her, she decided to dedicate herself to being the best she can be. “It has allowed me to be happy with myself, to not feel judged and to accept criticism in a different way. I want to inspire all women to believe in who they are, and to know that they can accomplish anything they set their mind to.” Vanderstarren was also proud she per-

Trains carrying crude raise safety questions

There are far more questions than answers about the horrific train derailment and subsequent explosions that destroyed part of the downtown of historic Lac Megantic, Quebec early Saturday morning. It is quite likely that the death toll will be close to 50 people, as five are officially dead and at least 40 are missing. They had little chance, with a 72-car unmanned train of tankers filled with crude oil piling up and quickly turning into a fireball, just metres from where they worked or slept. This tragedy is causing people all across Canada to think more closely about the trainloads of goods that pass by their homes and businesses every day. Here in the Fraser Valley, there are two very busy rail lines. Both pass through heavily-populated areas, and transport a wide variety of goods, including hazardous chemicals, explosives, refined petroleum products, coal and yes, even crude oil. One line, owned by Canadian Pacific, goes through the heart of Chilliwack. It is home to at least 20 trains a day, mostly coal and container trains. The container trains carry a wide variety of goods, including container tanks that are used for a variety of hazardous goods. One recent container train had a prominent sign on it, proclaiming that the box (container) was filled with fireworks. The Canadian National also traverse through the Fraser Valley. Crude oil is hauled through there, as are a huge variety of other hazardous goods — more than on the CP line. These products are an important part of our daily lives, and rail is generally a safe way to haul these goods. But the Lac Megantic tragedy reminds us to be fully aware of what surrounds us, to insist that rail companies follow good safety practices and to ensure that local governments, and particularly fire departments, are fully aware of the scale of a fire involving petroleum products and other hazardous goods — no matter how they are transported. ~Black Press

Time to step up the pace of flood threat mitigation As more rain brought more misery to the flooding in Calgary last the weekend, it reinforced the urgency to get up to speed and ahead of the game to mitigate the threat of future floods in the Fraser Valley. The Calgary crisis was such a wake-up call that former mayors of Chilliwack, Abbotsford and the District of Kent got together last week to urge major investment in flood prevention and spend the money now to do all that must be done to protect lives, infrastructure, and property from floods that, statistically, will come our way down the road.  Good call. Not that it hasn’t been called before. The stretch of river from Hope to Abbotsford is particularly at risk of high water given silt and gravel build-up, rising water from spring freshets and the potential

for heavy rains piling in from the Pacific Ocean to create the perfect storm to test even the best of dike systems. Our last really close call was 2007 when the province saw major floods, especially in Terrace where that city was cut off by floodwater and mud slides. In June that year Margaret the Fraser crested at Mission at 6.5 EVANS metres instead of the expected 7.5 metres, thanks to a change in the weather patterns that kept bringing more rain. The 1948 flood reached 7.6 metres, breached the dikes and flooded more than 22,000 hectares, nearly one-third the lower Fraser Valley floodplain. The

spring of 1999 was another close call when a heavy snowpack threatened a high spring freshet. Only a long, cool spring that slowed melt rate spared us from another potential disaster. From Hope to Delta there are 75,000 hectares of floodplain bordering the river and 300 kilometres of diking. The threat in 2007 convinced the provincial government to provide $33 million for emergency dike upgrades and flood prevention work. While one weather event does not define climate change, the evidence is building. Climate data worldwide is showing that weather events are piling up to reinforce the fact that the climate has changed and will continue to change on a warming path. The consequences are extreme weather events with devastating outcomes.

With an urgency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as part of mitigation management, it’s not ver y encouraging that the International Energy Agency projects a 55 per cent increase in world energy demands between 2005 and 2030 which, they estimate, would yield a 57 per cent increase in GHG emissions. Alberta wasn’t the only region affected by the combination of torrential rain and spring melt. Central Europe was also devastated by floods this spring from heavy rain. And, like Alberta, the rainfall pattern was locked in place by a disturbance in the global wind pattern. According to the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction, destructive wind storms greater than 100 k/h rose in frequency 16 per cent from 1970 to 1990, mostly in coastal regions. Major

floods from intense rainfall or rain and snow have already increased 80 per cent nationally between the 1970s and the 1990s. According to a 2012 study Severe Weather in Nor th America by Munich Re, one of the world’s leading re-insurers, North America is experiencing a rising number of natural catastrophes faster than anywhere else in the world. From 1980 to 2011, weather-related events have risen five-fold compared to an increase factor of 4 in Asia, 2.5 in Africa, 2 in Europe, and 1.5 in South America. Overall losses were $1,060 billion with a loss of 30,000 lives. Munich Re targets climate change as a significant factor. Back in 2007 (then) SolicitorGeneral John Les said that there should be renewed resolve for flood threat mitigation. It’s time to step up the pace.

Media mystified by NDP Re: ‘NDP at a crossroads’, The Progress editorial, June 27. I think that  I should write an essay on the intricacies of brain surgery. Oh no, since I know little on that subject, perhaps I should not. Yet, the Progress editor had a June 27 editorial entitled ‘NDP at a crossroads’. In this article, he theorized on the future of the B.C. NDP. One of his comments was obviously accurate in that the NDP now has to decide whether or not Adrian Dix remains as leader. However, there were other statements that were far from the truth, and show that the editor knows as much about the NDP as I do about brain surgery. Media outlets in B.C. just love making subjective comments about the NDP that are simply not based on fact at all. For example; the comment the NDP must move “beyond its massive debt to organized labour”.

What “massive debt”? I have yet to see it. Yes, the NDP believes in free collective bargaining and the right for all working people to unionize; but, there is no “debt”. The amounts of monies given to the NDP by unions pale in comparison to those monies given to the B.C. Liberals by large corporations. Why don’t you talk about the Liberal “massive debt” to corporations? The editor also commented that, if the NDP moved to a more “environmentally-based” party, they would be “playing catch-up with the Greens”. This is pure hog-wash. The NDP has been a strong “environmental” party for many years. The NDP IS the original Green Party. It is the Greens who are just now jumping on the environmental band-wagon and trying to copy NDP policies that have been around for over 70 years. On the other side of the equation; you stated that if the NDP became “more robust in

supporting economic development”, it could be “saying goodbye to many of its environmentally-minded voters”. This again illustrates that the editor knows very little about the NDP. The NDP has been saying for many years that there does not have to be a contradiction between economic development and environmental sustainability. Both at the federal level and here in B.C., the NDP have balanced these two considerations quite well. Yet, you persist in reminding people of this myth — that the NDP cannot be both at the same time. I simply ask editors and other media people — if you really want to write essays on what the NDP believes in; why don’t you simply ask them. It is obvious that you are lacking in knowledge on this topic and should not be writing essays on something that you know little about.

About 50 people showed up at the Walmart in Chilliwack last February to raise awareness about the boycott. Gardner later fired off a letter to Walmart’s director of environmental sustainability: “We invite Walmart to join B.C.’s own Save� On�Foods, PriceSmart and Coopers supermarkets in refusing to have farmed Atlantic salmon on their shelves and proudly take the same ethical decision in the best interest of your customers, the marine environment and well being of wild salmon and all it supports,� Gardner wrote in the letter to Walmart. “There is a growing number of restaurants in Chilliwack that have joined the boycott as well, including Bravo Restaurant and Lounge, and Jackson’s Steak and Grill.

A stream of orange paint sprays out of a can as Jim Lowe from Idaho marks the pathways for this year’s Chilliwack Corn Maze. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Solving the puzzle behind building a corn maze It’s not mapped by GPS, and ‘it’s not even out a foot. It’s very accurate,’ says co-owner Lloyd Taekema Jenna Hauck The Progress

Jim Lowe is standing in the middle of a field surrounded by one-foot tall corn stalks. He’s staring at a piece of paper in one hand. In the other hand is a long, strange-looking contraption with a trigger at the top and a can of fluorescent-orange spray paint lodged upside-down at the bottom of it. He looks up from the paper, then back down at the paper, and then up again. Suddenly, he quickly walks forward seven steps. He stops, turns 90 degrees, and walks 12 more steps. He darts across the cornfield on an angle taking nine steps. Each time he walks, he rhythmically pulls the trigger on the gadget holding the can of marking paint, creating a bright-orange, dotted line through the corn. This continues for hours. Walk. Spray. Stop. Turn. Look at paper. Look at corn. Walk. Spray. Turn. Walk. Spray. Turn. Stop.

“It’s a lot of walking in circles,” he says, walking in a circle. Although Lowe’s movements may seem random and all over the place, they’re not. Each turn and each dotted line is carefully mapped out and marked, both in the cornfield and on the blueprints in his hand. Lowe is marking the pathways for this year’s design at the Chilliwack Corn Maze. It’s not a simple job. First the corn is planted, both northsouth and then east-west, to create a square graph to work with. The rows are counted and then information is sent to the designers where they draw the maze design on a blueprint. Once the corn has grown to about a foot, that’s when Lowe, a corn maze expert from Idaho, comes in. He measures and marks the field in 50-foot square quadrants with pink flags that can be seen from a distance. The large quadrants in the cornfield correspond with the small squares in the blueprints. The owners of the corn maze,

the Bruinsma and Taekema families, are proud of the fact that their maze is not mapped by GPS. “It’s not even out a foot. It’s very accurate,” says co-owner Lloyd Taekema. It takes about a day to map the field and mark the pathways with orange paint. If Lowe makes a mistake in marking the pathways, he erases the line simply by kicking the earth over so the paint no longer shows. When the marking is done, it takes another day for Lowe, Taekema, and other co-owner, John Bruinsma, to follow the orange dotted line and cut the corn stalks down to create the pathways. This leaves the roots of the corn still in the ground, so a rototiller is used to remove them. The ground for the pathways is then compacted down. Once the corn reaches about six feet tall, Bruinsma and Taekema use their homemade corn-trimming machine to tidy up the walls of the maze. The ‘MacGyvered’ machine vertically cuts all of the corn

leaves that are hanging out obscuring the paths, just like trimming hedges, says Michelle Klim, marketing rep for the maze. The machine is one-of-a-kind and built from scratch. It is attached to the front of a tractor and “it’s basically a sideways lawn mower,” says Taekema. The entire maze-building process takes just under three months to complete. The corn was planted on May 25, then mapped, marked and cut a month later. The walls will be trimmed using the homemade machine just before opening day on Aug. 16. The Chilliwack Corn Maze is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. It is the first and original corn maze in Chilliwack. Over the years, other mazes have come and gone, but Chilliwack Corn Maze has stayed strong all while giving back to the community. Each year they pick a different charity to fundraise for and feature in the design of the maze. This year they’re recognizing nation-wide charity, Raise a Reader, as well as the 140th

anniversary of the RCMP. The 10-acre maze is divided into two sections with two separate logos featured in the maze design. The larger half will honour the RCMP with a Mountie carrying a flag on horseback, and the other half — the children’s maze — has the Raise a Reader logo featuring two happy stick people sharing a book. This year’s fundraising day for Raise a Reader is Saturday, Sept. 14. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All proceeds from the corn maze that day will go directly to Raise a Reader. There is no Raise a Reader program currently in Chilliwack, and the Bruinsmas and Taekemas want to change that. All of the money raised on Sept. 14 will stay in the community and will go towards starting up a Raise a Reader program here in Chilliwack. “We really believe if we give to the community, it will give back to us,” says Klim. photo@theprogress.com twitter.com/PhotoJennalism

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

HUNKEN from page 3 and you provide services, and you provide medication, but you don’t give them anywhere to live, they cannot manage their illness,” said Chilliwack Supportive Housing Society manager Kate Lister, who has spent three decades fighting for affordable supportive housing for people with mental illnesses in Chilliwack after her own son was diagnosed with schizophrenia. The last few decades have seen a shift from housing people with mental illnesses in big impersonal institutions, to providing homes within individual communities. The model is similar to the evolution in special education. Rather than having children with special needs in one classroom, they are now spread across

The Lions Den

classrooms, which is healthier for them, but more costly on the system. While Riverview has closed, sufficient funding for housing has not trickled down to Chilliwack and other communities that have absorbed people with mental illnesses. Chilliwack’s lack of affordable supportive housing is the biggest impediment to recovery for people with mental illnesses, according to Lister. The opinion was echoed by staff at the city’s mental health unit. Lister believes people need a clean, safe and stable home that they can afford, where they know they won’t be thrown out. Only then can they begin to manage their illness and live a fuller life. Recovery is hopeless, she says, without a permanent home. Lister also believes that such housing units reduce the overall cost to society. When people are healthier, they aren’t

draining hospital or enforcement resources. Lister has calculated that if the government purchases an apartment in Chilliwack and rents it to a person with a mental illness, it would take only five years before the cost is paid back in savings to the social system. Hunken, after being released from the CGH that last time in 2010, had nowhere to go. “A lot of horrible suites all over the place. When you don’t have a job, and you have very little money, a lot of places won’t take you. The nicer apartments won’t take you. Even if you can move in with someone who can afford it, they still won’t take you. And so you’re stuck with really crummy places,” he said. He ended up in a house with twelve people, where dividers in the living room and hallway created separate bedrooms. With mental illness, living in close

While Canada celebrates its 146th Birthday, the Mount Cheam Lions Club is heading towards its 36th Anniversary. For over 35 years we have been serving the community of Chilliwack and surrounding areas. With the new executive in place, we hope to continue the positive effect we have had on those who need our help. We began with the Canada Day celebrations where a Áood of red shirts set up a concession booth selling burgers, hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches and more. As usual, all funds raised will be used in the community. The next step will be our year planning session which will take place this weekend (before this is published). At this meeting we discuss and organize plans for the upcoming year including projects for fund raising and budgeting for the needs in the community. Once our goals are set, we will set about our business of helping the citizens of our Àne community. Lions everywhere are also called upon to help in emergency situations – such as the Áood in Alberta. The Lions International was front and center in providing aid in this disaster. Much of the focus of Lions Clubs International work, as a service club organization, is to raise money for worthy causes. All funds raised by Lions Clubs from the general public are used for charitable purposes and administrative costs are kept strictly separate and paid for by members dues. Money that is raised for a club’s charity account goes toward projects that beneÀt the local community of an individual club. As always our success also depends on you – the citizens who support our projects. Just as those in need depend on us, we depend on your generousity. And once again we thank you !!!

quarters with other people can be especially difficult. In 2011, Hunken was the first to secure a coveted apartment in the Village, run by the Creative Centre Society. The modern complex on School Street is the reincarnated version of a building that was home to Olympic athletes in 2010, shipped here in pieces from Whistler. All 22 current residents have a new 450-square foot bachelor apartment for which they pay $375, the maximum allowed for housing for those on B.C.’s PWD assistance. Hunken’s own immaculate suite has natural light streaming through two walls of windows, onto his organized kitchen and living space, which is complete with a full office setup of two computers and a large printer.

and stores his electric scooter on the ground floor by the 24/7 security room. It wasn’t long after Hunken moved into the Village that he began to lead a much more normal life. “This building had a lot to do with me getting healthy,” he said. “Having a safe, clean place to live.” It’s difficult to eat well when rent is most of one’s income, he explained, and it’s difficult to get well with a poor diet. He hasn’t visited the Salvation Army food bank since moving into the Village. He grows some of his own food in a community garden on the front lawn of the Village, and drives to the cheaper grocery stores on his scooter. Hunken is only on a small anti-depressant now, an improvement for someone who used to take heavy antipsychotics that turned him into a “zombie,” spending much of the day asleep. He still has mood swings, but has learned to manage them. He still thinks about suicide, but distracts himself with community involvement. He has become a well-known public speaker on mental illness in Chilliwack, and educates RCMP officers, students, and health workers with his story. He maintains a website for people living on low income or PWD in the city, at www. chilliwackspace.com, and wants to create a resource booklet for the city. Hunken also shares his journey on a blog. He has joined a standup comedy troupe and breaks stigma through humour. While he may never fully recover from the illness that plagues him, Hunken has made major strides in living a better life and becoming an integral community member in just a few years. Read Part 2 on the employability of the mentally ill in next Tuesday’s Progress. Part 3 will explore the impact of social structures, and Part 4 will focus on addiction and criminal behaviour. akonevski@theprogress.com twitter.com/alinakonevski

Wallace a rising star on Strongman scene Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

What Scott Wallace does would kill most men, and most men would say what he does is straight-up nuts. Hauling around 290 pound kegs and deadlifting 438 pound bars? The local ER would fill up quick if any of us tried it. And that’s part of the attraction for Wallace, a big reason why he does something that seems so insane. Because no one else can. The former semi-pro football player got his first taste of Strongman life in Alberta. Several of his teammates were into it, and he gave it a try. He “fooled around with it a bit,” then let it go, and didn’t think about it again until he moved west. Wallace came to BC in 2008, settling in the Fraser Valley and taking a job in corrections. Early last year, he was walking out of the Jolly Miller and saw an ad for the Vancouver Men’s Show. The ad mentioned a Strongman competition, and Wallace told his wife, Carrie, that he’d like to do it. She didn’t believe him. “Carrie kind of challenged me on it and said, ‘All you ever do is talk about stuff and you never do it,’” Wallace recalled. “And I said, ‘All right then, I’m going to do it.” That was in May. About a month later, he squared off with seven guys in the competition, and finished fifth. And just like that, he had the bug. “It’s my thing because I like lifting heavy (weights) and I like competing,” he said. “And I knew I had big potential to get better at it.” Wallace forged an important bond with Brian Way, a Langley native and Strongman veteran who was happy to be a training partner and mentor. One month after his first competition,

Wallace tackled BC’s best in a provincial-level event. He placed third. Two months later, he finished second at a competition in Kamloops. Wallace trained his butt off over the winter. He found a power-lifting coach in Barry Nelson and a sponsor in Elite Nutrition. “I’m in the gym four days a week for two-anda-half hours at a time, training to the point where my body’s done and there’s no more I can give,” he said. “And then I do another day of events training.” Two weeks ago, he travelled to Des Moines, WA, for the sixth annual Washington’s Strongest Apple. He was the only Canadian competitor and represented the country well in the 265300 pound heavyweight men’s division, finishing first in each of the five events. The first was a keg carry/sled drag. “You pick up a 290 pound keg and carry it 100 feet, then you drag 600 pounds of sled back,” Wallace said. “In 90 seconds, I made it further than anyone in my weight class, but I fell to the ground afterwards and could barely get back up.” The second event was dead lift reps, done with an axel bar as opposed to the traditional Olympic bar. “The axel bar is two inches in diametre and takes a lot more gripstrength to hang onto,” Wallace explained. “The weight was 438 pounds, and got 13 reps in 60 seconds.” The third event was the yoke carry, requiring Wallace and his foes to walk 100 feet with 750 pounds on their shoulders. Wallace made it 59 feet 10 inches and threw up afterwards. “The fourth event was the 270 pound overhead keg press, which is extremely difficult to do,” he said. “No one in my weight class even got one rep, but I was the only one to get it up to my shoulders. I just couldn’t get it over my

head.” The final event was Wallace’s favourite, the atlas stone. Dead-tired competitors had to pick up a 352 pound stone and heft it over a 50-inch bar. “You’ve got 60 seconds to get as many reps as you can, and I got two,” Wallace said. “No one else even got one.” Wallace admits he’s not often the ‘strongest man’ at these competitions. So it defies logic that he would win so handily. But what’s that saying about the size of fight in the dog? “I have more determination and desire to win than the next guy, and I truly believe that,” he said. “One of these events would put a normal man down, and when you’re doing five or six of them, pushing your body to the limit,

that desire can help you overcome a lot.” Can it help Wallace reach the upper echelons of the sport? That’s where he wants to go, but can sheer will trump experience and muscle? “Only a few people can put their bodies through what they have to for Strongman, and I’m stubborn enough where I’m never going to willingly let another man beat me,” Wallace said. Winning Washington opened a door for Wallace, who’s been invited to Texas for the North American Strongman Championships in October. A top 15 finish there, and he’s on his way to worlds. “The opportunity is there for me to get where I want to go,” he said. “I want to be the best.”

Scurr rebounds in Revelstoke Chilliwack’s Steven Scurr overcame a sluggish start to finish middle of the pack at the BC Junior Boys Golf Championship, held last week in Revelstoke. Scurr shot 75 and 76 through the first two rounds to fall to 39th overall before battling back in rounds

three and four. Round three was his best, an even-par 72 that included five birdies. He shot a two-overpar 74 on the final day to finish 29th overall in a field of 72. Another Chilliwack kid, Connor McLellan, had a tougher time. A disastrous 10-over-par

third round left him with a four-round total of 310 That left him 22 over par and tied for 61st. The full leaderboard is online at bcga.bluegolf.com/ bluegolf/bcga13/ event/bcga139/contest/1/leaderboard. htm

Thiessen tears it up on Divot Tour Chilliwack’s Mitchell Thiessen birdied five holes to win for the second time on the 2013 Optimist Fred Wellsby Junior Divot Golf Tour. The fourth of five rounds was played Friday at the Cheam Golf Course. Thiessen’s 52 was six strokes better than Deroche native Niko Kraakman’s 58.

Chilliwack’s Josh Bamford was third in the 13-15 year old division at 59. West Vancouver’s Lauren Wong led the 10-12 year old division and Chilliwack’s Adam Knodel shot an 83 to edge Langley’s Caleb Davies in the nine-and-under group. The championship round is Thursday at The Falls.

North Vancouver’s Bryn Parry withstood a late charge from Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin to take top spot at the Chilliwack Men’s Open, held last weekend at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club. Parry and Hadwin required four playoff holes to determine a winner. Hadwin star ted Sunday’s second round six shots off the pace after Parry set a new course record Saturday with an eight-under-par 63.

But Hadwin closed the gap in rapid fashion as the leader cooled off. Parry left the door open, shooting a tepid one-over-72 that included bogies on the first, 10th, 14th and 17 holes. Hadwin completed the epic comeback on the 18th hole, getting the last of his seven birdies to force the playoff. But Parry collected himself, and matched Hadwin stroke for stroke through three holes. When he beat

Hadwin on the fourth playoff hole, he secured his fifth career title at the Chilliwack Men’s Open. “It was extra special to win the event in front of my wife and two boys,” he said afterwards. Seann Harlingten was third in the professional division, two shots off the pace. Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp tied Oliver Tubb

for fourth, each shooting four-under-par 138s. On the amateur side, Chilliwack’s Dan Mitchell fired a fouroverpar 146 to edge Mark Heinrich and Greg Bismeyer by three strokes.

CLARKE Master Stanley Shields September 7th, 1934 - June 30th, 2013 joined him there for the middle year and experienced the beautiful culture as well. Soon after settling back home, Dad started working for Seaspan International. Patti came along in 1974 and with her lots of ‘fun’ with horses and their events. Dad was always there to haul a horse or build a fence. (Did I already mention fencing?) He enjoyed camping and visiting with the other equestrian families. Scott was the first grandchild, born in 1983. The picture of him and Dad hand in hand, each with one pant leg tucked into a boot, will forever be in our minds. He loved his grandchildren and was always a good sport and willing to play games or amuse them by tucking his ear inside out. He worked for Seaspan for 22years until his retirement in 1999. It was a huge blow to dad losing Mom only 6 months before that retirement. He sold the farm and moved into Chilliwack, but moved to Salmon Arm within a few years to realize a dream he and mom had shared. He made some great friends while living there and bought a little boat to putt around the lake and fish in. After a scare with colon cancer, dad decided (with our help) to move back to Chilliwack to be closer to us. Many nights playing cards and dice with Betty and Herb and sometimes Enid too (thank you for being such great friends) and helping us with advice and home projects filled his days and nights. As his health declined in the past year, he found enjoyment with his little dog Roxy and watching old movies. The memories are too vast to capture in this notation, but Dad will always be remembered for his dedication to family and friends and his willingness to help anyone, anytime, anyhow. Whether by brawn, knowledge, advice or finances, Dad was always there. One of his favorite sayings was there is ‘three sides to every story, his side, her side and the truth’. He was a fair man and a well respected Master Seaman. He never asked for anything in return and certainly never wanted to be ‘cared for’. He was the caregiver. He loved Purdy’s chocolates, peanut brittle and Mac and cheese; country music, Tina Turner, dogs and his family.

Predeceased by his wife Eunice in 1998, his parents Herman and Olive Clarke, siblings Peggy Fitzpatrick, Bertha Smith, Ted Clarke, James Clarke, Shirley McLaren and Dorothy Smith. Dad is survived by his siblings Marion Noel, Beverley Hobden, John Clarke and Barbara Simmons, his children Laura Clarke, Anne Clarke and Patti Fox, grandchildren Scott Clarke Taylor and his fiancée Allison, Leanne Friesen (Vandenberg) and husband Mark, Derek Vandenberg, Samantha Fox and Glenn Fox, many nieces and nephews. We all will miss him more than words can say. There are so many people to thank for being in ours and Dads life: Joilyn for being his constant care companion over the past few months (his Filipino Flower…Gloria too!) Natasha for her humour and perfectionist care of Dad, Roxy and the house! Thanks to Ria and Hank for their unending dedicated friendship, Jerry and Carol and little Fritz for the insistent visits even when Dad wasn’t ‘receptive’, the fabulous staff at Cascade Lodge during his brief stay, in particular Heidi, Teresa, Julia and Donna.

7-13T OC9

With country music playing in the background, family and friends at his side and his beloved dog Roxy curled up beside CLARKE him; we said goodbye to our Dad as he sailed off on his final journey. Born in Vancouver, the 6th of 11 children and due to his curly blonde hair was teasingly known as ‘Snow White with the 7 sisters’. He grew up with a strong work ethic and with a wicked sense of humor-both leading to a myriad of adventures. He was a good athlete in high school and excelled in many sports including boxing and running. His love for the ocean developed early and he began his career on boats at a young age. Although he never learned how to swim, he became a very proficient Captain/ Master/Skipper of towing vessels and his trips took him up and down the west coast of British Columbia and even as far south as California. He was a proud member of the Canadian Merchant Service Guild. Dad supplemented his income in the early days with odd jobs such as driving taxi, piling bricks, selling vacuums and even creating sets at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. He met Mom, Eunice Gislason, through his sister Shirley and they were married in 1957. Laura was born the following spring and Anne came 20 months later. Dad and Uncle Ted built their first house on Charland Avenue in Coquitlam and the family enjoyed many years in the area. In the late 60’s Mom and Dad decided to move out ‘to the country’, and bought a small hobby farm in Greendale. Dad learned quickly about ‘farm life’ and how to outrun those ‘cats with white stripes’ down their backs, as well as how to build fences and more fences and more fences. There was a menagerie of animals and most turned into pets rather than sources of food. Dad continued to work out of town and during his 2 weeks home was never found sitting, but working on the list Mom had compiled in his absence. In 1971, Dad took on a very large adventure when he sailed a large ship named the Samarinda to Singapore while towing a barge with a smaller vessel on it. Dad worked in Southest Asia for three years.

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Charles (Chuck) Edward Johnstone on July 1, 2013 in Chilliwack at the age of 90. He was born on November 13, 1922 in Toronto, Ontario. Chuck enlisted in the Canadian Army at the young age of 18 and was assigned to1st Chemical Warfare Company, RCE. At 19 he was shipped to England and then to the shores of France where he took part in the Dieppe Raid. He then went to Holland where he was part of their liberation by the Allies. From there he was sent to Germany where he fought until the end of the war. Chuck then returned to Canada and became a Drill Sergeant at Camp Borden, Ontario. When WWII was over, Chuck left the Army only to re-enlist in 1947 and was posted to the Yukon where he worked on building the Alaska Highway. He spent a couple years there where he said he enjoyed the solitude. He was then posted to Chilliwack where he met the love of his life Margaret Gagnon. They met in April 1950 and were married three months later in July. Chuck spent the majority of his military service in Chilliwack where he was greatly involved in the Sapper Apprentice program. He was not only an instructor, but a mentor to the young teens who had enlisted in the Army as apprentices. Chuck was involved in Teen Town on the Chilliwack base as well as organizing a band that was invited to play for Princess Margaret when she visited Chilliwack in 1958. For many years Chuck and Marg wanted to have children and finally in 1961 while in North Bay, they welcomed a son, Charlie, into their family. Two years later they were delighted with a daughter, Kathy, and their family was now complete. Altogether Chuck spent 29 years with the Royal Canadian Engineers. After service in England and Europe he served with the engineering units on the Alaska Highway, Chilliwack, Germany (NATO), North Bay, Calgary, Lethbridge, and Petawawa. After many postings across Canada, Chuck retired as a Sergeant and later worked as a civilian with Base Supply, CFB Chilliwack. After retiring he continued to be an active and life member of the Legion (Branch 280) where he served as 1st VP, 2nd VP and Secretary / Treasurer. Chuck was predeceased by his parents James and Emily (Paulhill), all his siblings (William, James, Emily, Theresa) and his wife Margaret. He is survived by his daughter Kathy (Glen Besler), son Charlie, grandchildren Cheryl and Mitchell Fraser, nephew Jimmie Johnstone (Ruth) of Ont., niece Barbara (Denise) Owen of Antonio Texas, niece Becky (Allan) Smith, and three great-nephews Barrie (Tanya), Shea and Robyn. There will be service of remembrance and a colour parade at the Vedder Legion Br. 280 on July 27 at 11:00 a.m.
