Police recover stolen vehicle Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope RCMP have recovered a stolen truck from Chilliwack. Last Thursday (July 25) at about 7:40 p.m., police were notified that a 2006 grey Ford F-350 was taken from Townsend Park in Chilliwack. The next day, Hope RCMP received information that a truck matching that description was possibly being stripped for parts in the 58000 block of Laidlaw Rd. Officers at-

tended the property and found the truck in the process of being dismantled. Police seized the vehicle for forensic examination. “We’re still following up with a lot of tips on the investigation,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “We’ve identified a few individuals but no one has been arrested at this point. We’re still trying to get the story straight from the people that had the truck, but it’s likely that we would have enough charges

at some point.” Manj said there’s been a recent increase in the number of recovered stolen vehicles in the area, which spans from the old toll booth on the Coquihalla Highway to Herrling Island on Highway 1. In particular, there’s been a spike in stolen Honda Civics and Ford F-530s. “It’s hard to say why, but we’re the furthest east community in the Lower Mainland and there’s a big push everywhere else to reduce

property crime,” said Manj. “So, we do see waves like this and then we have to figure out who the people are that we think are involved and we start targeting them. Either they go to jail or they move somewhere else.” Manj encourages residents to secure their vehicles the best way they can using a club or any other type of immobilizer, as well as keep items out of sight to help reduce the chance of being broken into.

Legion upgrades aging infrastructure Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope Legion patrons will now feel a lot more comfortable, thanks to a $25,000 federal grant. Dyane Betts, the Legion’s Fraser Valley zone commander, said the money went towards upgrading aging infrastructure at the building. Four new high energy efficient furnaces and a new four-ton air conditioner have been installed. Hope Legion received the maximum grant possible for the project under the New Horizons for Seniors Program. “It’s a very competitive program, which is a capital program that allows for upgrades to places like this where seniors do gather because we value the community spirit that is felt in a place like this,” said Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl, who had an opportunity to check out the new units last Friday. “Congratulations to the Hope Legion. It’s great to see the work done already.”

Associates for a new exhibit this fall. Traditional Arts: the story behind the surface is a project that seeks to explore the history, traditions, culture and the changing realities of Hope’s residents through traditional art forms. “Art transcends culture,” said project coordinator Jodi McBride. “So the idea is to look deeper into art from different cultures and understand why it was created in the first place. That will help people understand each other’s cultures better … promote inclusion and build bridges so that people feel more like

one community rather than different little microcosms.” Traditional arts are often rooted in cultural necessity and evolve as changing times bring new perspectives. McBride points out that understanding, witnessing and exploring traditional art forms can reveal a wealth of meaning and understanding among diverse populations. Sponsored by the province, through Embrace BC Arts Engagement, HIP is looking for art that displays a story of multiculturalism, change and adaptation and represents who the artist is, as a result of their story.

Youth (16 years and under) and adults are encouraged to apply. Categories include: two-dimensional art (paint, photo, collage), three-dimensional art (sculpting, pottery, installation), and fiber art (weaving, crochet, sewing). First, second, third place and public favourite will be chosen in each category for both youth and adult entries. Prizes range from $25 to $300. A $5 entry fee is required and must be submitted with the art piece and entry form between Oct. 14-18 to McBride at Free Rein Associates (895 3rd Ave.).

Entries will be juried and artists will be notified of their acceptance on or before Oct. 31. All accepted submissions will be featured at the Traditional Arts: the story behind the surface exhibit and final winners announced. The exhibit at the Hope Legion on Nov. 9 will include live music, food and the “Tales & Trails of the Canyon” play by Hope Performing Arts Community Theatre. Artist entry forms are available at www. hopeinclusionarts.com or by email at jodi@ freereinassociates.ca. For more information, contact McBride at 604-869-2279.

FVRD pledges to tighten expense rules Fraser Valley Regional District director Dennis Adamson still has an unsupported balance of expense claims after a months-long specific audit. Director Wendy Bales, also subjected to an individual audit, substantiated most of her expenses and has no balance remaining. The FVRD launched an audit of 2011 and 2012 travel expense claims for both directors after it was revealed in February that there were no supporting documents for their combined travel expenses of $42,578 for 2011. Adamson’s expense claims of $28,545.63 in 2011 were double the next highest director’s. By the end of 2012, Adamson still had not provided any supporting documents for these costs, which had already been paid out by FVRD staff. “We weren’t told to keep receipts,” Adamson told Black Press in February. Director Wendy Bales also failed to provide receipts in that timeframe for $14,032.46 of travel expenses for 2011. This prompted FVRD board chair Sharon Gaetz to call for a full review of the travel expenses of both directors for 2011 and 2012.

The KPMG auditors combed through Adamson’s calendar to find events he attended in order to justify spending on meals, mileage, and hotels. Auditors found that Adamson travelled much more than 400 km per month, the maximum discretionary amount allowed. Adamson was able to provide few or no receipts during the audit. After the review, Adamson still had $6,453 unsupported for 2011 and $5,092 for 2012. FVRD forgave $5,000 from both years in recognition of a nearforgotten policy that allows any Area B director to claim the additional amount for travel expenses. One of the largest electoral areas, Area B includes residents from Sunshine Valley up to Spuzzum. The final balance of unsupported expenses for Adamson is $1,453 for 2011 and $92 for 2012. Because all claims have been already paid out during those same years, FVRD is figuring out what to do about the final balance. At last Tuesday’s FVRD board meeting, Adamson argued that much more travel is required in Area B than in any other area, and that existing travel allowance limits are too low. “In those years when

expenses were high, a lot got accomplished in the area. It was a phenomenal busy year...Value for the dollar has to be considered,” he said. Director Bales also had her 2011 and 2012 travel claims raked through. Unlike her colleague, Bales was able to provide receipts and other supporting documents for most expenses. FVRD justified the leftover unsupported $1,503 in 2011 and $507 in 2012 as reasonable telecommunications, meals and mileage costs that were consistent with previous

years. Bales has no final unsupported balance. The detailed review cost FVRD $6,100. Chief Administrative Officer Paul Gipps, who inherited the issue when he joined the regional district in April, was adamant that such a high amount of unsupported expenses is not likely to happen again. “The likelihood of this happening again, near impossible. That’s our commitment. We have to look at how we got here, why we got here, and figure out how that can’t happen again,” said Gipps.

The regional district is introducing electronic tracking sheets for expenses, and defining much more clearly what discretionary spending entails, such as which events are and are not sanctioned. “In interpreting the review it was clear that the majority of challenges around expense claims are managing the discretionary mileage allowance and associated costs and providing details related to the purpose of the meeting and who attended,” noted Gipps in a staff report.

A Hope-based duo are taking over the Memorial Park stage this Saturday. Art and Darlene Boucher started the band Crossfire two years ago and offer something for everyone, performing lively dance music from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, as well as rockabilly and early and new country hits. They have played music at venues such as the Hope Legion, service clubs all over B.C., Merritt Rodeo Days opening for Kenny Hess, and at many public and private dances. Art has been involved with music for most of his life, starting out as a drummer and then moving on to lead guitar while in the navy. He played in a band during the 1970s and 1980s called Northern Lights on Vancouver Island. Darlene has played guitar since she was 15. She started performing with Mountain Express 11 years ago. Pianist Simon Nam, owner of Colonial 900 Motel, will join Crossfire for Saturday’s free concert. Nam moved to Hope in 1991 with his extended family from overseas and graduated from Hope Secondary School in 1994. In 1996, he graduated from Capilano College, in music education, and then

Care Transit to deliver Better at Home program By the end of this year, seniors in Hope will have several more resources to help them remain independent at home and connected to their community. Hope was selected as one of 68 communities around the province to provide the Better at Home Program. These projects are funded by a $20 million initiative of the provincial government and managed by the United Way of the Lower Mainland to help seniors with non-medical day to day tasks. Hope underwent an extensive community engagement process in the spring under the leadership of Lucie Honey-Ray. Over 200 survey responses were collected and on June 10, community and stakeholders meetings were conducted with seniors, service providers, potential lead agencies and representatives from the United Way. Participants added to the extensive information gathered during the community engagement process, prioritizing services from the Better At Home

basket and discussing collaborative partners. Based on lead agency criteria identified in community engagement and stakeholder meetings, Care Transit emerged as the lead agency for the Better at Home program for Hope, Sunshine Valley, and Fraser Canyon. This will include a partnership with the Boston Bar/North Bend Enhancement Society. During her community engagement, Honey-Ray found the services most needed locally were transportation, house cleaning, yard work/snow removal and friendly visits. Boston Bar also needed help with grocery shopping. “I am thrilled and excited for the Better at Home initiative in Hope/Boston Bar and know the seniors are in for a treat based on the passion of this team to ensure services roll out as soon as possible,” said Honey-Ray after the initial meeting. Funding for the local Better at Home program is expected in mid-October and it’s anticipated that the Care Transit of-

fice, which provides transportation already to seniors and has many seniors stopping by for a chat, will have resources in place to start rolling out some of the services before the end of the year. Boston Bar/North Bend plans to start with a grocery shopping service during this same time frame. Seniors interested in the program can contact the Care Transit office to register for services in Hope and Sunshine Valley. For services in the Fraser Canyon/Boston Bar, the contact is Patricia Davison at 604869-1308. Contractors and volunteers can also express their interest in providing these services but they must have a criminal record check in place and contractors must be registered with Work Safe BC. The Care Transit office is open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at 425 Wallace St. For more information on the program, call 604-869-3396.

Clark sworn in, launches core review

Premier Christy Clark took a break from cabinet meetings in Vancouver Tuesday to be sworn in as MLA for Westside-Kelowna. One of the cabinet’s first tasks is to launch a “core review” of government programs, with a target of reducing overall program spending by $50 million this year. Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett is in charge

of the cost-cutting exercise, and is to release terms of reference for it on Wednesday. Clark has described this core review as different from the one that former premier Gordon Campbell led after the B.C. Liberal Party formed government in 2001. The new review will focus on identifying functions that don’t need to be done by government, and reducing excessive

regulation that Clark described as a natural accumulation of all governments over time. Clark led the B.C. Liberals to a 48-seat majority in the May 14 election, but lost her own seat in Vancouver-Point Grey. Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart agree to step aside so Clark could run in that seat, which she won handily in a July 10 byelection.

Campfire ban in effect All open fires, including campfires, are now banned in the Hope, Fraser Canyon and Manning Park areas. The Coastal Fire Centre made the announcement on Wednesday, taking the step to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety. The fire danger rating is currently high to extreme throughout the Coastal region. With the current trend of warm and dry weather, wildfires have displayed “aggressive behaviour” and required additional fire suppression resources. It is also anticipated that the region will experience lightning throughout the next week, which will likely produce more fires. Human-caused wildfires can divert critical resources and crews from responding to naturally occurring wildfires. Open burning is now prohibited, effective at noon on Aug. 1, throughout the Coastal region. This prohibition applies to open fires of any size, fires with a burn registration number, industrial burning, fireworks, tiki torches, sky lanterns and burning barrels. The prohibition does not affect cooking stoves that use gas, propane or bri-

quettes, or to a portable campfire apparatus with a CSA or ULC rating that uses briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, as long as the height of the flame is less than 15 centimetres. The open burning prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban, including campfires, may be issued a ticket for up to $345. Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated firefighting costs. The prohibition is expected to remain in place until Oct. 15. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories, visit www.bcwildfire.ca. Updates can also be found at http://twitter. com/BCGovFireInfo or http://facebook.com/ BCForestFireInfo.

The Fraser Valley Regional District has rejected Metro Vancouver’s offer to consult on the Waste-to-Energy incinerator plan, on the grounds that dialogue won’t be meaningful until Metro demonstrates more transparency about the project. In a brief letter dated July 12, Greg Moore, chair of the Metro Vancouver board of directors, invited three FVRD directors to a meeting to discuss “outstanding issues.” “I would reiterate Metro Vancouver’s invitation to consult on the important topic of waste-to-energy in our region,” wrote Moore. “Please consider appointments of up to three interested FVRD directors who can meet with the same number of Metro Vancouver directors. This would support a full discussion of outstanding issues. Moore concluded with his hope of hearing from FVRD “so we may advance this important discussion.” The letter arrived two weeks after

Zero Waste Committee chair Malcolm Brodie’s visit to FVRD’s board meeting resulted in a tense confrontation between Brodie and FVRD directors on the issue of waste management. At last Tuesday’s FVRD board meeting, chair Sharon Gaetz directed staff to draft a reply rejecting Metro’s invitation. The FVRD will not consult with Metro Vancouver on waste-to-energy until FVRD obtains a seat on the WTE third party expert panel, and until Metro shares all WTE-related documents at no charge. “We have no interest in listening to talking heads and not having meaningful dialogue. We need all the same information that they have in order to have that kind of meaningful consultation,” said Gaetz. Once those two conditions are met, Gaetz assured that FVRD will welcome consultation. “We will look forward to it, we will be so excited, we will move everything on our calendars to be there, wherever they choose to conduct it.”

Notice of Stage Three Watering Restrictions Effective immediately and until further advised, the District of Hope is on a Stage Three Watering Restriction. Watering is now permitted only on alternate odd or even calendar days based on civic addresses during the hours of

Summer holiday hazards Summer seems to be the season of senseless accidents. A child falls from a window left open to capture a cooling breeze. A swimmer dives into a shallow pool of water and never resurfaces, and, of course, countless long weekend traffic accidents are all tragedies that seem to happen year after year. And they especially resonate because they often involve people taking part in activities we’re all pursuing in the halcyon days of summer. Enjoying the outdoors. Being active. Getting away. Staying cool. But just because we’re slowing down to enjoy the season doesn’t mean we can let down our guard. Traffic may be diminished but it’s still dangerous. The water at the swimming hole may be inviting and refreshing but dangers lurk beneath the surface. Beers on the back deck or campsite are just as intoxicating as those consumed in the pub on a Friday night. Of course, more people are out and about, enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures, so the odds are more accidents are likely to occur. But the zeal to get out, to maximize our enjoyment of these months before the winter rains and chill settle in again sometimes lead to lapses in judgment. Seemingly inconsequential acts like leaving a window open, rolling a stop sign, not looking both ways before crossing a street, ignoring a prominently placed warning notice, can come with huge consequences — sometimes even fatal ones. British Columbians love the outdoors, partly because there’s so much of it at our doorstep and it’s so beautiful, partly because we spend so much of the year seeking shelter from it when rain and snow fall from the sky. Just remember to be careful out there. – Black Press

NDP soul searching going nowhere B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher B.C. NDP president Moe Sihota says an external review of the party’s performance in the May election will “look very much at the DNA of the NDP.” Early signs are not encouraging. Start with the five-member panel announced to conduct the review. The required “labour” representation is in the person of Cindy Oliver, president of the union representing college and university instructors, and Andy Ross, ex-president of COPE 378, which represents BC Hydro employees among others. Another appointee is NDP MP Jinny Sims, a former president of

the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. If the party wants to further solidify its image as a lobby group for pension-subsidized government unions, it’s off to a great start. The terms of reference defy parody. In addition to unions, the panel required “more than one woman.” A sub-committee may be struck, if it has representation from “youth, women, labour, visible minority, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisesexual, transgendered, questioning).” I presume the party’s lengthy antiharassment policy will be read out to begin all meetings. Once they finally get down to business, the list of election campaign details they must examine is long. In addition to that, they must review “stakeholder relations including community leaders, business, social movement, ethnic communities, environmental movement, affiliated unions and

the labour movement.” One of the excuses offered by leader Adrian Dix for the party’s defeat was the loss of 40,000 jobs in the B.C. forest industry. The suggestion is that those people left for Alberta, and if they were still here, they would have voted NDP. That presumed solidarity has never existed in the private sector, and in fact the highest-paid union workers have good reason to vote for lower taxes. To confirm B.C. and Canada’s “progressive” tax system, all they have to do is look at their pay stubs. The mandate for this review mentions not one actual public policy issue. Here’s one the committee might kick around. Having lost the 2009 election campaigning against the carbon tax, the NDP is now calling for it to be increased and extended to greenhouse gases produced by in-

Standard

dustrial process emissions. A simple example is a cement kiln, which burns fuel to reach the temperature at which the components are partially burned and cement is produced. Cement manufacturers pay carbon tax on the fuel, whether it’s natural gas or shredded tires, but not on the process. B.C. cement makers are already pleading for relief, because the fuel-intensive process puts them at a price disadvantage with U.S. and Chinese producers. Further unilateral tax action by B.C. would only further increase imports, and potentially push B.C. firms out of business. Goodbye unionized private sector jobs. Dix’s last foray in question period before the summer legislature session adjourned was a demand for the government to order BC Ferries to build its next three ships in B.C.

Leave aside the NDP’s uncritical zeal for state control, and their illfated experiment with aluminum fast ferries. The most likely bidder for this work is Seaspan, with shipyards in Esquimalt and North Vancouver. Seaspan is hiring almost 2,000 people to build ships for the Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard.

Hope Standard Thursday, August 1, 2013 A7

Examine ‘business as usual’ approach I found the nature of Mayor Johnston’s comments quite interesting in last week’s article entitled, “Petition aims to halt tax increases.” The mayor was quoted as saying, “We have to do what we think is right. We have an obligation as mayor and council to pay the bills and we can’t pay the bills unless we increase taxes.” As co-author of the tax petition with Ray Zervini and having attained at least 200 signatures myself, I can assure the mayor that those signing our petition want council to honour their basic financial commitments, such as the interest payments on our increasing debt load, but at the same time, examine every viable option to reduce current

and future spending so we can avoid another hefty tax increase next year. The property tax of one of my friends went up 100 per cent in the last three years while another witnessed a 40 per cent increase this last year alone. Her Honour’s words of, “We are doing this because we’re looking after their needs. Those needs and costs continue to rise,” provide little comfort, especially to those on a fixed income. Many of the recent people who signed our petition (that grows on average by 50 signatures a day) wonder how truly fragile the nature of our town’s financial state is, based on the mayor’s comment on a zero per cent tax increase. She remarked, “Everything will come

to a screeching halt and the following year we’ll declare bankruptcy because there’s no alternative.” The mayor could easily have said that district council are more than willing to look at any viable proposals that would assist in reducing the town’s spending in the short and long term, but this was not the case. Council used $500,000 from the reserve fund alone this year just to balance the books. So raising taxes allows us to proceed with “business as usual.” Maybe what is needed is a hard look at what is now considered to be usual operation of our District of Hope. I am confident that the ideas our group presents to council will provide the foundation to key talk-

ing points now and for the next civic election. The voices of the people who signed our petition will resonate loud and clear through the changes they believe need to take place in our town to reduce the current level of spending. As a side note, I would like to clarify that our group is exploring the taxsaving option of closing C.E. Barry School - not Silver Creek Elementary School. We believe the planned B.C. government seismic upgrade of approximately two million dollars is a waste of taxpayer money for a school that could potentially be closed due to declining enrolment. John Koopman

Positive citizen participation is more effective Re: Petition aims to halt tax increases (July 25) I hope those who are signing the petition to have a zero tax increase are prepared to detail which services they want cut. Is it the summer maintenance program including daily clean up of Memorial Park, the overtime associated with snow cleanup on the infrequent snow days we have, or maybe the seasonal sewer cleaning and street cleaning or the removal of goose poop so the beach is usable? How about garbage pickup once every two weeks as a way to save? The district could always delay further

road and water repairs which often get pushed out in time. We could, of course, choose to not enforce our bylaws which would beg the question of why we have those pesky bylaws and the councillors who create them. There are legal functions in running a town that by provincial law have to be done and need qualified people to do them. These include the regulatory demands of development control and plan approval to ensure safety of all current and future residents, all financial functions, privacy legislation, water and sewage inspection, emergency response, disaster planning to

name a few. Policing and education are outside of the control of the district as are the volume of provincial unconditional grants. We could however have more babies as those grants are based on population and their decline was the major contributory factor to the tax increase! A councillor sits on the library board and the mayor sits on the Fraser Valley Regional District, and both agencies bill the local taxpayers; one for the library services and one for the recreation centre, but with one vote there is little influence. More complex than you would think.

My wife and I retired to Hope based on our perception of a great place to live and my service for a brief time with the district did nothing to change that view. We enjoy the amenities of a much larger town with the library complex, pool, golf club, curling club and views to die for. In the last few years we have witnessed a new bridge that came in under budget (costs shared by three levels of government), the savings permitting another dangerous bridge structure to be replaced over Sucker’s Creek. A sewer project funded primarily by the province has resulted in a

new business in Hope (Flying J), with more to come along that line. The landfill liability has been resolved by the district in a fashion that will dramatically reduce the costs of disposing of waste and be reflected in lower taxes or better services within the next few years. These are simply a few examples of great things that have been accomplished and, in my opinion, we are getting good value for our taxes. However, all elected district councillors vowed to make better citizen communication a major priority in the last election and their failure to do so really

Paving crew went above and beyond I have a few words for the construction crew that is working on the bridge over Sucker’s Creek – thank you! We at Hope Mountain Centre ran a watershed exploration program

for families at Sucker’s Creek on July 20. Unfortunately, there was a party on the beach the night before, right where we had planned to set up. The construction crew foreman cleaned up

most of the mess before we arrived to set up. Two members of the crew took multiple trips from the road to the beach and back to help get all our equipment where it needed to be. The crew

was working on the parking lot that morning, which made it difficult to access the washrooms across the street. One of the crew assisted the families, who were attending the program from out of

town by escorting them safely there and back. You impressed our out-of-town guests and helped us out greatly. Thanks for going above and beyond. La Vern Klassen

Local businesses key to recent wedding success The Williams family would like to thank these great business people who helped make Amanda and Ryan’s wedding on July 20 such a wonderful success. First, a huge thank you to Claudette, Kerry and staff at the Hope Golf Club for the amazing hospitality and food. You worked so hard to make the day unbelievable and it was. Thank you to Dutchies Bakery for making the delicious

wedding cake, Flowers in Motion (Brad the gorgeous arrangements were exactly what they wanted), Naomi Toews and Picasso Hair Design (thank you for making the girls look like super models), and Ray Scott (thank you for officiating the ceremony and helping make the day so special). Great job David Mawhinney, the awesome DJ who had us dancing all night, and an extra special thanks to Cairith at Bluhr Photography

and Hillary at Hillary Smith Photography – you ladies did a fantastic job of capturing the special day. Last, but certainly not least, thank you so much to Ryan’s wonderful family the Normans, who travelled

puzzles me. There are great stories out there and nobody is telling them. Citizens are also notably absent from the public meetings scheduled specifically to get their input. There were two citizens who turned up at the meeting held last summer to present and get input on the long awaited future of the landfill site. In my life experience, while petitions have their place, positive citizen participation in partnership with staff and elected officials at the right times in the public process, is a much more effective strategy.

ANSWERS FOR PUZZLE 401

Premier Christy Clark is pitching B.C.’s carbon tax to her fellow premiers, bolstered by a study that shows it is reducing fossil fuel use compared to other provinces. As premiers gathered last Thursday in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. for a Council of the Federation meeting, B.C. Environment Minister Mary Polak said B.C. needs other provinces and U.S. states to get on board before moving further on carbon pricing. Introduced in 2008, B.C.’s carbon tax now adds about seven cents to the cost of a litre of gasoline, with comparable taxes on coal, fuel oil, propane and other fuels. Legislation requires that carbon tax revenue be offset by reductions in business and personal income tax, so it encourages fuel efficiency. The B.C. Liberal Party campaigned in the May election to freeze the rate for five years. Polak said results so far show it is reducing per-capita fuel consumption without depressing the overall economy, but the province has gone as far as it can on its own. The study by University of Ottawa law professor Stewart Elgie found that per-capita use of fossil fuels has declined, while it has in-

creased in the rest of Canada. “B.C.’s carbon tax shift is only four years old, so it is too early to draw firm conclusions, but its greenhouse gas reductions are trending in the same direction as those seen in European countries with more than 15 years of data,” the study says. “Indeed B.C.’s reductions to date appear to be even greater, consistent with the fact that its carbon tax rate is now higher and more comprehensive than most European countries.” NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert agreed that

the carbon tax is working, but said the five-year freeze indicates the government has lost its leadership position. The NDP is calling for the tax to be extended to emissions from industrial processing such as cement making, which is currently subject to tax only on natural gas or other fuel used. Polak said some industries are already at a disadvantage because B.C. is going it alone. Other jurisdictions need to put a price on carbon emissions before B.C. can expand the tax or raise the rate further, she said.

Schoenborn denied transfer from B.C.

ritt in April 2008. Schoenborn applied for the transfer in February, during his annual appearance before a medical review board, so he could be closer to family members. After the February hearing, the review board issued a decision that it “had no difficulty concluding that the evidence continues to show that the accused remains a significant

threat,” and that he should “remain in hospital both for public protection as well as treatment.” The review board recommended consent to the transfer, which must also be approved by the Attorney General’s ministries of both provinces. The B.C. ministry reviewed the case and determined public safety is better served if he stays where he is.

The arts and crafts programs at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre are about to get a big boost. A much needed fundraiser has been launched by the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society board of directors, entitled the Fraser Valley Culture & Craft Beer Festival, debuting Nov. 30. A focus on craft beer will highlight the event, alongside local cuisine and Chilliwack rockers, The Lounge Hounds. For the past 50 years, beers in the hands of the average Canadian have been put there by mega corporations with the focus on how much they’re selling instead of what they are selling. Over the last several years, craft brewing has become the fastest growing beer segment in Canada. Craft brewing is innovative, full of curiosity, collaboration, and

tradition. Craft brewers pure pleasure with the make their community complimentary appea better place. For the tizers to go alongside first time, craft brewers the beer.

Hoggan brings Calder Cup to Hope Barry Stewart Hope Standard

It’s often said that you can’t go home — but for a few hours on Saturday afternoon, a couple dozen “Old Boys” of Hope Minor Hockey and a few guests came home for an old-time street hockey tournament. A few who never left home were there, too... one of whom would captain the winning team. When they were kids, they might have been playing for a makebelieve Stanley Cup. On Saturday, they were playing for a temporary chance at a genuine professional hockey trophy: the Calder Cup. Hope Minor Hockey product Jeff Hoggan captained the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins to a Calder Cup win over the Syracuse Crunch in June and he made a plan to bring the cup to Hope this summer, when he visited with his wife Chevonne and sons, Hunter and Cam. The NHL has for many years been allowing the winning players a chance to take the Stanley Cup back to their home towns. In the AHL, the tradition has more recent roots. “The Norfolk Nationals started it last year,” said Hoggan on Tuesday.  As captain, Hoggan would have had first rights to the cup but he wanted to have it during his visit with his mom and dad, Ann and Gerry. Unlike the NHL, the cup didn’t come with a white-gloved escort.  “It went out to Quebec, first. I scheduled it with the UPS guys and we had to go pick it up in Chilliwack,” explained Hoggan, who also won the cup 10 years ago, with the Houston Aeros. “It’s about 35 pounds [16 kg] but it comes in a metal case, so it’s about 70 pounds [32 kg] in total. After Hope, it’s going to Vancouver, for my teammate, Landon Ferraro, then down to California,” he added. “I’ll have it with my college buddies at Omaha and then it’s going to Europe.” Saturday morning, Hoggan and his brothers Marc and Aaron got a ride with Valley Helicopters to the top of Mount Hope for some memorable photos. Then it was down to Memorial Park for the four-team tournament, arranged by former HMHA player and official, Kye

Grace. With the aid of Facebook, phone calls and word-of-mouth, Grace pulled the event together in less than a week. Including the 28 players, about 75 to 100 people attended. “Despite the short time frame, we managed to put together a day all of us will never forget,” said Grace.  “We felt it important that we not only acknowledge Jeff ’s accomplishment but remember all the people who helped us develop as youngsters in Hope Minor Hockey,” he said. “Giving pre-game recognition to those that are no longer with us included Jeff ’s uncle Larry Besse, Caesar Soares, Warren Rigby, Lorne Davies, Franco Talarico and Dan Sharrers. We were talking about how cool it would have been to have them there.”

“I played an audio clip received from the Griffins’ PR team, which included the last minute of Game Six and the post-game celebrations, then I motioned for Suki Manj of Hope RCMP, dressed in red surge, to bring in the cup. “We had Yahna Bergen sing O Canada and Barb Sharrers dropped the ceremonial ball — then we had honorary coaches from back in the day draft the teams... Pat McInnes, Glen Wejr, Jerry Miller and George Johnston,” said Grace. “It was agreed that no one else would pick the coach’s sons, so Pat went ahead and picked Landon Ferraro — ahead of his own boys. Heck of a strategy,” said Grace. “With Landon as a probable callup for the Red Wings next year, Pat was on to something.” So one team had Hoggan, with

over 100 NHL games under his belt — and Ferraro, a rising star, was on Grace’s team... yet neither team scorched the earth. In the end, it was Brian Druet’s Team White — coached by Jerry Miller — that went through all of their games with zero goals against, to win the cup. Jeremy Morris was Mr. Perfection in net. It would have even more perfect if they had been wearing Bruins jerseys, Druet’s favourite. “Druet was in his glory, I’ll tell you!” laughed Grace. “It’s something he’ll never forget — and good on him. The enjoyment he and everyone had was just the icing on the cake for a great season for Jeff.” “Kye did an amazing job,” said Hoggan of the organizer. “We had a lot of laughs during our turtlepaced game of old time street

hockey. “No injuries were reported and most sticks were used for leaning on, rather than scoring goals. There were many air-gasping moments, reminding most that the fittest days have gone by.   “The Cup was on display in the park for those who wanted pictures with it, before Team White gained the rights of possession for the rest of the evening,” said Hoggan. “It truly was an awesome day — and a fitting, small-town way of celebrating the Calder Cup.  “My initial dream was to one day bring Lord Stanley home but at 35 and just re-signing back to my role in Grand Rapids for the next two years, let’s leave that monumental step to the next young, upcoming, determined local dreamer to make a reality.”

IN MEMORIAM

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS

OBITUARIES

BALDIE, Christian Rolland In loving memory, celebrating 97 amazing years , we announce the passing of Christian Rolland Baldie, July 26, 2013. She will be greatly missed by her daughter Ann Alexander and husband Malcolm of Hope, and daughter Margaret Johansen and partner Bill of Wisconsin. Also fondly remembering her are her grandsons Darren, Anton and John and their wives Holly, Jorie and Michelle respectively. She also leaves behind her great grandchildren Toby, Hayden, Hannah and Olin, and last but not least her kitty “Joy”. Special thanks to Dr. David Botha and the staff at Fraser Canyon Hospital. A Celebration of Life will take place on August 10 at 1 pm at the Hope Station House. In lieu of flowers donations to Fraser Canyon Hospice Society, 1275 7th Avenue, Hope, BC, V0X 1L4 are appreciated.

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of Paul Norman (Norm) Stallnecht; husband, father, brother, and granddad, on July 13, 2013 at the age of 78. He leaves behind his loving wife Shirley, daughter Hollie (Sault), son Darren Stallnecht (Otelia), grandchildren Nicholas Sault, Meghan (Alex) Reid, and Charlotte Sault, all of Kelowna, BC. He is also survived by his brother, Robert Stallnecht, of Prince George, BC. Born in Edmonton, Alberta on May 23, 1935, Norm attended a number of schools in Alberta before moving west, where he met Shirley in Princeton, BC. They married in 1955 and lived in Copper Mountain, where he worked at the mine until June of 1957, when they re-located to Hope, and Norm worked at the Giant Mascot Mine. In 1961 he started his own business, Norshirl Electrical Services, which was his livelihood until his retirement. Throughout his entire adult life, Norm served his community as a committed Freemason and was active in many concordant bodies; the Gizeh Shriners of British Columbia, among them. He will be missed by his Family, Friends, and the Brothers. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory to either of the following would be very meaningful, as both were dear to his heart: the Masonic Community Charities Cancer Car Project, or the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital. Condolences may be sent to chapelofhope@martinbros.info
