Celebrating Fraser Canyon history Yale Historic Site and Hope Mountain Centre are teaming up for a weekend of activities commemorating the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Cariboo Wagon Road, from Yale to Spuzzum. Declared the “eighth wonder of the world� when it was completed in 1865, the Wagon Road played a key role in the gold rush economy of the 1860s and in the development of the new colony of British Columbia. “It’s an interesting part of history,� said Yale Historic Site supervisor Deb Zervini. “We thought this would be a great event to entice people to come up and check out this really cool place. It’s a community event that brings together people from all areas

of the region. There’s something for everybody.� On Aug. 17, Hope Mountain Centre will lead a historic guided tour of the Cariboo Wagon Road. The bus will take participants up the canyon to see Lady Franklin Rock and some surviving sections of the Wagon Road that are still in remarkable condition. Near the Fraser River, people will also see traditional salmon-drying racks used by the Yale First Nation and others, attesting to the ancient traditions that continue in the canyon today.  After a scenic lunch beside the Fraser, the bus will head up the highway to Alexandra Bridge before returning to Yale Historic Site for a salmon barbecue at 6 p.m. hosted by the Yale and District Ratepayers. Tickets to the barbecue are $15 in advance, or $20 at the door, and

are available through Yale Historic Site or Barry’s Trading Post. There will also be guided walking tours of Historic Yale starting at 10 a.m. and a performance of “Tales and Trails of the Canyon� by Hope Performing Arts Community Theatre at 7 p.m. The show is included with a barbecue ticket or by donation at the door. On Aug. 18, St. John the Divine will be hosting historian John Mitchell’s talk, “B.C.’s Road to Gold: The story of the Cariboo Wagon Road� at 11 a.m. At 12:30 p.m., there will be a re-dedication of the Cariboo Wagon Road in the park at the foot of Albert and Front streets in Yale. A park enhancement project, which includes a new National Historic Site plaque, information kiosk and picnic table, was just completed through a partnership between Parks Canada,

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Emil Anderson Maintenance, Province of B.C., Fraser Valley Regional District Area B, Yale & District Historical Society, and the Yale & District Ratepayers. Following the re-dedication ceremony, there will be an open house and refreshments on the grounds of the newly conserved Ward House at 1 p.m. Throughout the weekend, visitors can check out the Living History Tent City, participate in self-guided walking tours of Historic Yale, learn how to pan for gold, eat bannock, and watch historical re-enactments by Black Powder and the Royal Engineers.

News Bike safety campaign underway New leadership for AdvantageHOPE In response to community concerns, local police have launched a bicycle safety awareness campaign. “We have seen an increase in people cycling this summer,” said Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “With the advent of beautiful summer weather we have more recreational cyclists, more people cycling to work, and with school starting in less than a month we want to educate cyclists, especially our youth, to travel safely.” The RCMP hope to educate and remind the public that the same rules of the road apply when riding a bicycle as operating a car. Cyclists must wear a helmet and ride on the right side of the road, not on the

sidewalk. When cycling at night, bicycles are required to have a white light in front and a red light on the back. Cyclists are also encouraged to wear reflective clothing in order to be as visible as possible. Violations of any of these regulations will result in a $109 fine. “Broken arms and legs can mend fairly well. A broken skull can be fatal. Therefore we will be diligent in enforcing [the helmet] requirement,” said vanNieuwenhuizen, adding that the fine for failing to wear a helmet is $29. For more information on bicycle safety, stop by the Hope Crime Prevention Society office at 777 Fraser Ave. or call 604-869-5900.

Tammy Shields is not wasting any time in her new role as executive director of AdantageHOPE. With new leadership, comes a new vision for the organization. Shields is bringing an innovative approach to economic development that maximizes local resources with a team of five local contractors. “The ideas we have are taking it in a new direction,” she said. “My vision through this new direction with AdvantageHOPE is that we take Hope forward and elevate it to its rightful place as a provincial icon and a place that attracts people here.” Shields believes the solution to current municipal tax woes is based around the idea of sustainability.

Chilliwack and Kent Harrison members called to assist Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope Search and Rescue had a busy day on Saturday, responding to three separate incidents. The first call was mid-afternoon, when a man drove his dirt bike over a steep embankment on Nickelmine Road and fell more than 200 feet. Kent Harrison SAR and Valley Helicopters brought in a Bell 407 and Chilliwack SAR members conducted a HETS (long-line) rescue. HETS rescue technician Josef Seywerd was shocked by the rider’s apparent good fortune. “Aside from a few scrapes he appeared to be uninjured,” said Seywerd. The man was transferred to an ambulance

and transported to hospital. Attention was then turned to assist his friend who decided to go down and help his friend in need, but became stuck. With the assistance of Kent Harrison rope team, the man was pulled out of danger. While they were still on the first call, Hope SAR was called to another emergency on the Coquihalla River at the popular Othello Tunnels area. Two young adults had been swimming in the river when they were overwhelmed by the current and were swept downstream through a treacherous canyon to a section of the river between the first and second tunnel. The two swimmers were able to make it to shore, but both were

stranded on the far side of the river. Valley Helicopters and the SAR teams used longline helicopter techniques to assist the injured female using an aerial rescue platform (ARP). The uninjured male was also evacuated by long-line. The third call for assistance came minutes after rescuing the two swimmers. Hope SAR regrouped at home base and got the equipment needed to begin a search for a missing 16-year-old boy who was hiking a few kilometres south of Silver Lake on Skagit Valley Road. Chilliwack SAR once again assisted on the rescue. “The terrain was steep and rugged and it initially appeared as if the search might be

a long one,” said Hope SAR manager Mario Levesque. “Fortunately SAR teams located the teen, unharmed, just after 11:00 p.m.” On Aug. 5, Hope SAR returned to Othello Tunnels after a call by BC Ambulance (BCAS) to respond to an injured hiker. The woman was hiking with her husband near the first tunnel when she fell and injured her head. An initial team with an Emergency Medical Responder arrived shortly on scene after receiving the call from BCAS. While they assessed the woman and provided first aid, BC ambulance arrived and transported her to hospital. The team was also called out by the RCMP on Tuesday at

7:15 p.m. to search for a missing 51-year-old man. He was supposed to return from hiking Mount Hope Lookout Trail by 4 p.m., but after waiting a couple hours friends made the call to police and reported him overdue. A ground crew began the arduous hike up Mount Hope Lookout Trail and Valley Helicopters was able to launch an aircraft and fly over the summit. However, with darkness approaching, the helicopter was called off since the individual had walked out of the woods. He was tired, needed water and was looked over by the BCAS. The three-hour search concluded at 10:30 p.m.

Bobcat sighting in downtown Hope A bobcat was spotted numerous times in downtown Hope on Sunday, near Third Avenue and Park Street. According to the Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee, bobcats don’t usually attack humans or pets. However, residents are encouraged to keep little dogs and cats indoors or supervise them when out in the yard. Kids should also not be left alone in the yard, especially during dawn and dusk. The Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee issued a warning immediately online about the bobcat sighting on Sun-

day, pointing out that “bobcats are typically shy, but it could be that somebody has been feeding it or raccoons, and that’s maybe why it is hanging around and is not scared of humans.” If a bobcat is spotted, residents are encouraged to scare it out of their yard by making lots of noise or throwing objects like water bottles at it that won’t hurt. For regular updates about wildlife sightings in the Hope area, visit the Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee page on Facebook.

Rock music takes over park stage Shades O’Grey takes over the Memorial Park stage this Saturday with special guest Matt Pade. Shades O’Grey is comprised of drummer Ebi Fazzari, bass player Pas Pascucci, and lead guitarists Greg Bradbury and Mike “Jackson� Sole. The group performed on Canada Day for the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce and have been invited to play during the Brigade Days weekend. They love playing Trooper, Barney Bentall, Guess Who, Billy Idol and Boston music. After driving his parents crazy pounding out beats on the back seat of the car, they relented and signed Fazzari up for drum lessons. Since then, he’s played professionally with a six-piece band called Boardwalk on the club circuit, travelling all over Canada. Sole is a recent import to the Hope area. At the age of 10, his parents thought, after endless hours of watching him listening to old 45s, that guitar lessons would be a good outlet for him. Sole has been playing guitar ever since, in garage bands, at weddings, dances, parties, and recently with Shades O’Grey. Bradbury is a well-known experienced guitar player around Hope and the Fraser Valley. He’s played in many bands throughout B.C. and Alberta including The Crew, The Hoodlums, Harrison’s The Wrecking Crew, and with Victor Nickeforik, guitarist, of the Headpins. Pascucci told his parents at the age of nine that he wanted a guitar, and instead got an accordion with lessons. A friend introduced him to a guitar when he was a teenager and they formed the duo Jaxon & Co., performing at the CNE for the Toronto Multicultural radio station CHIN AM/FM and in the U.S. playing Eagles, America, Beatles, Cat Stevens, CSNY, Lightfoot, and other folk rock music. Pade’s mother passed away shortly after his birth in Germany and he was taken to a convent where nuns took care of him until he was five years old. His father remarried, but in 1945 was taken by the Russian army, never to return. His oldest brother was killed in the war and two other brothers, one only 16 years old, were taken as prisoners of war. In 1954, the remaining family with Pade immigrated to Peterborough, Ontario. There he went to school, earned some money at various jobs and in his spare time got to listen to music on the radio. What he heard was different from what he knew, but it didn’t take long for Pade to fall in love with music. Greats like Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and The Everly Brothers blew his mind. A friend loaned him a guitar and he started taking lessons. Soon he started jamming with others, and got to know and play with Jack Bailey, Slim Jamison And Del Crary. He started playing in bars, dance halls, local TV and party’s every night. In 1960, Pade formed his first band, The Sparks, with guitarist Kurt Mangin and played shows around Toronto and Hamilton. In the 1980s, he played for six years with The Red Woods out of Hamilton until a car accident one night after a show almost killed the bass player. Shortly after, Pade cut off parts of his fingers in a lawn mower accident and until he learned to use his fingering hand again, he spent time recording and performing karaoke. In 1990, with 30 years seniority, Pade retired from Ford Motor Company and moved to Hope. Since then, he’s played at the Catholic church and also on special occasions at other churches. He wrote songs of places near Hope that left impressions on him and made a CD called, From Hope, B.C. With Love. Pade will bring his country rock music to the Memorial Park bandshell on Aug. 10. The free concert takes place in conjunction with the Hope Mountain Market from 12-2 p.m. The summer Concerts in the Park series is presented by the Hope & District Arts Council, with funding from the province through B.C. Gaming. Bottles of water donated by Nestle Waters will be distributed for free at the concert along with ice donated by Buy & Save Foods.

Potential for harm The shooting of a young cougar found prowling the trails of Cultus Lake was unfortunate, but necessary. The animal had demonstrated behaviour that could easily have ended tragically for the many families who enjoy those trails daily. It had threatened hikers, and showed no fear of the people it encountered. When that happens, the outcome for the animal is certain. For many, this seems harsh. They argue the animal could have been trapped or tranquilized and relocated to a distant part of the province. Some even suggest a zoo. If only the answers were that easy. Cougars are extraordinarily territorial and travel vast regions to secure and protect their hunting zones. Relocating the young cougar found near Cultus Lake would simply have introduced it into another animal’s territory. Its hunting skills were immature, and the cat likely would have starved to death. Or, more likely, the cougar would have found its way back to the more profitable edges of our urban encroachment. It is here (where the more mature animals have learned to avoid) that a young cougar might hope to establish a territory. Dining on docile family pets, it soon learns it has little to fear from their human owners. And although it is rare for cougars to attack humans, they certainly will – particularly children. The cougar that was shot last Thursday was lurking at the edge of a popular campground prior to the start of one of the busiest weekends of the summer. It was a small animal, but its potential for harm was still great. Three years ago a larger, more mature cougar broke into a pen in Ryder Lake. In a flash it killed 11 sheep, their throats crushed by the animal’s powerful jaws. It would be nice to think that simply relocating a habitualized cougar would solve the problem. However, few would want the responsibility of knowing a cougar relocated to the wild had returned and killed or maimed a child. It’s a tough call to shoot such a magnificent animal. But authorities made the right one. - Black Press

B.C. aboriginal progress fragile B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The ceremonies have become common at the B.C. legislature. Government officials and aboriginal leaders gather to celebrate resource sharing agreements that allow economic development in areas that need employment but are hampered by a century of uncertainty and dispute over treaties, or lack thereof. This approach emerged a decade ago with forest agreements. The B.C. Liberal government bought back timber cutting licences from big forest firms and made them available for community forests and aboriginal communities who claimed the areas as their traditional territories. Recently the approach was extended to mining revenues and wa-

ter licence fees paid by private power developers.  These are substantial steps forward for the only province in Canada in treaty limbo. A 2010 sharing deal worth more than $30 million in royalties for the Mount Milligan coppergold mine north of Prince George helped the McLeod Lake Indian Band recover from the pine beetle and forestry slump that devastated its business base. After many years of struggle, Mount Milligan expects to go into production this year. Another agreement with Kamloops-area communities shared revenues from an expanded Afton mine. Perhaps the most ambitious agreement was concluded in March of this year when the government signed a deal with the Tahltan Nation for mining and hydroelectric development in remote northwestern B.C. The deal clears the way for a major

extension of the BC Hydro grid to power the Tahltan village of Iskut and also the Red Chris metal mine, opening up the region to other mining and hydro potential as well. To get that deal, the province put up $20 million last year to buy back Shell Canada’s coalbed gas leases in the Klappan region, headwaters of the Nass, Skeena and Stikine Rivers. Those leases had become a target of international protest. Even after these expensive concessions, it would be an error to conclude that all is well between the Tahltan and the province. Stikine MLA Doug Donaldson questioned Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad on this point during the recent legislature session. The Tahltan Central Council was pleased about shared decision-making on resource projects, until they found out that B.C. had handed the environmental assessment of a new

Standard

open-pit coal mine over to the federal government. The proposed mine is in the Klappan, known around the world as the Sacred Headwaters. Rustad said shared decision-making deals such as the Tahltan agreement do not cover activities of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. Whether the review of that coal mine is federal, provincial or combined, it requires extensive consultation with affected parties. That’s great, but all that goodwill could evaporate quickly if a coal mine ends up getting a permit despite Tahltan objections. Rustad’s Nechako Lakes constituency is also a focal point for oil and gas pipeline proposals. Donaldson highlighted another problem. Last year the government signed a reconciliation agreement with the Gitanyow First Nation near Terrace, one of many communities struggling to get through the B.C. treaty negotiation

process. That agreement included a joint  land-use  plan. Then the Environmental Assessment Office asked the Gitanyow for its input on proposed gas pipelines through its territory, to feed the government’s liquefied natural gas plans. Again, the joint land-use plan has no provision for pipelines. The Gitanyow hereditary chiefs wrote to the B.C. government in July, threatening to go to court over the pipeline proposal and questioning the value of their hard-won reconciliation agreement. Resource revenue sharing agreements and shared land-use plans are well-intentioned and represent real progress. But these situations show how fragile they are.

Letters NDP needs to shift ideological base

Hope Standard Thursday, August 8, 2013 A7

Re: NDP soul searching going nowhere (B.C. Views, Aug. 1) A significant aspect of NDP postelection soul searching, following its catastrophic defeat by the forces of free enterprise, will no doubt have to be coming to terms with the need to move the party further to the centre, away from its ideological far left-wing base. While the federal NDP appears to have decided  to delete references to  “socialism”  from its guiding  party  preamble to make it more palatable politically and

competitive  electorally, merely removing  “socialism  as a founding principle, without jettisoning its politically outdated doctrine,  will not convince Canadians that the NDP is anything  but a socialist party.   Shakespeare  perhaps said it best in ‘Romeo and Juliet’: “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”  Confronted with the political reality of  the concept of socialism proving itself to be an abysmal failure throughout the world,  being replaced by  more  free enter-

prise,  less  government and less social engineering,  the  question naturally arises as to whether B.C.’s NDP party will be able to “jump over  its own  ideological shadow” and  abandon  its traditional stand on the principles of democratic socialism, as defined in the B.C. provincial NDP constitutional  preamble: “The New Democratic Party believes that social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be assured by the application of democratic socialist principles

to government and the administration of public affairs ... including, where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.” Stripped of its defining political raison d’être, however, NDP soul searching to remain a legitimate electoral contender in the province would make it a journey of heading somewhere into the future without the benefit of a road map and without a clear sense of its  destination ...  always carrying the baggage of its political past.  E.W. Bopp

Conservatives are working with partners Re: Increased federal government funding needed, Letters (July 4) After the reading the above noted letter, I thought it important to remind readers that the Conservative government has been a dependable partner and a strong supporter of local infrastructure projects. 

The federal government was a proud partner in the construction of the Kawkawa Lake Road Bridge and the upgrading of the roadway. The Conservative government invested $3.3 million in this project which improved the efficiency of the roadway and safety for

pedestrians and cyclists. In the depth of the recession, it created approximately 100 direct and indirect jobs. More recently the federal government invested almost $100,000 in the upgrading of the Hope Regional Airpark and fourregional parks. Funding

enabled much needed infrastructure improvements. The project not only supported local employment but creates the opportunity for future economic activity. The Conservative government will continue to work with our provincial and municipal partners to

support infrastructure projects and create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity. Mark Strahl, Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP

same thing that happened in Los Angeles in 1992 when those four Los Angeles Police Department officers got acquitted in the beating of Rodney King. They walked. The black people burned down half of L.A. The minorities are still being stereotyped. In the new Lone Ranger movie, Canada’s very own aboriginal Adam Beach was to play Tonto. Hollywood had a change of heart and cast

Johnny Depp instead. They figured Johnny Depp would make a bigger box office draw. Hollywood still has white men playing Indians. Hollywood has change very little since the 1930s in the treatment of Indians on the silver screen. And in the TV series Cops, they always show black people getting arrested. They do not show any white people getting arrested. The producers of COPS say

“blacks” getting arrested draws “bigger ratings.” The relationship between the U.S. police agencies and minorities still have a long way to go and things here in Canada is no different. The aboriginal is still being stereotyped by the RCMP and the aboriginal people also has a long way to go. If things are to change at all, this generation will have the hardest time of it.

Music festival on the Nahatlatch REO Rafting is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with a riverside music festival.   The weekend of August 16-18 will feature live performances, songwriting workshops, camping, fully catered meals and whitewater adventures. “We wanted to combine our love of music with a festival that features songwriting workshops and create a really valuable, memorable experience for people that they won’t find anywhere else,” said Nick Solac-

zek, director of sales and marketing. “Owner Bryan Fogelman and I are singer-songwriters and can totally appreciate anyone who has struggled with artistic blocks that come along with writing, recording and performing your own songs in front of an audience. When we see amazing bands like Greg Drummond’s perform we are truly inspired and really take something away from watching an artist take the stage to entertain a large crowd.” A new stage has been built on the edge

of the Nahatlatch River, where all the bands will be playing throughout the weekend. Since the event celebrates the process of creating and playing music, there will also be open mic opportunities before the bands perform on the Saturday night. The music lineup for the festival includes local, Canadian artists from the 2013 Peak Performance Project Top 20, 2013 Fox Seeds Top 20 and 2013’s Van-

Brigade Days ball tournament is back Barry Stewart Hope Standard

The locally-developed game of adult two-pitch softball had great success for over 20 years in Hope, before bowing in to pressures to switch the league to slo-pitch rules in 2008.  That plan only lasted a few years and Hope has been without any kind of ball league ever since. Without a base of local players, the annual Brigade Days ball tournament also fell by the wayside, taking a lot of spirit — and attendance numbers — out of the weekend celebrations. Things are back on track this year, though, thanks to the help of former Hope resident Jeff Smith, who now hails from Agassiz — where the two-pitch league had 16 teams this year. So far, Smith has commitments from 10 teams. “Deb Romano gave me a shout and wondered if I wanted to help get a ball tournament going,” said Smith on Tuesday. “I’m guessing it’s been about five years since there was one at Brigade Days. “When I met with the Brigade Days committee in May, I told them a few things I needed and they said ‘go for it.’ “I needed both ball diamonds at Sixth Avenue and fencing on Diamond No. 2, to make the home run mark the same as on Diamond No. 1, which has a fence. I also needed them to donate some gate passes. We’re basically splitting the cost on those.” Smith said Brigade Days organizers are making 300 badges, for those who like to collect them, but they will be switching to wrist bands for all others. Ball players are required to have a wrist band, even if they don’t intend to take part in other weekend activities, he added. Smith said he chose to go with two-pitch instead of

slo-pitch because he felt it would encourage more family fun. Slo-pitch follows the three-out format of baseball, while two-pitch runs through a team’s 10-player lineup in every inning... with the batters getting two easy pitches from their own team’s pitcher. Long-time player, coach and tournament organizer Ed Araki conceded that, “It has been hard to get the la-

dies to play mixed slo-pitch.” He contends that mixed two-pitch can produce more injuries when played competitively, though, especially from collisions. Araki is taking a back seat this year but he said he has long roots with Brigade Days ball tournaments. “I was coaching the ladies’ fastball team back in the 1960s — the Ken’s Ripoff Esso team — and when Ken James got Brigade Days

going, he asked me to organize a ladies’ fastball tournament. “Ladies’ fastpitch sort of went out of style, so we switched to men’s slo-pitch, then to mixed two-pitch and mixed slo-pitch,” recalled Araki. “My son Kelly played twopitch in Agassiz this year and I think his team will be playing at Brigade Days.” Smith, whose brother Dusty has taken on organiz-

ing local men’s hockey tournaments, said, “Quite a few people are coming down from Hope to play ball in Agassiz. Our season runs from May to the end of July. “We’ll be having four teams from Agassiz at Brigade Days and the rest are from Hope and Boston Bar. We’ve got a couple of native teams and Kevin Kawaguchi and Byron Linza are throwing together a team. Kurtis Bergstrom, too.

“We’ve got 10 teams right now. That’s my limit,” said Smith. “There are three teams on the waiting list but I don’t see how we could have any more teams this year. “We’ll have a couple of late games on Friday and Saturday night, so we’ll need the lights,” he added. “We’ll be done on Friday before the fireworks — and it’ll all be over before the demo derby on Sunday.”

Robin Leslie Baker May 30, 1976 - Aug. 8, 2007

Marion Folkmann was born in Didsbury, Alberta, on August 17, 1945 to Hank and Emma Folkmann. She passed away July 25, 2013 in Chilliwack B.C. Marion was able to live a full life despite multiple complications with her heart beginning with open heart surgery in 1974. Her career as a Licensed Practical Nurse was in hospitals in Milk River and Fairview, Alberta and in Kelowna, Sydney and Hope, B.C. Due to medical complications she retired to Chilliwack in 1994. Marion loved to travel with friends and family and traveled in Europe, all of Canada and most of the United States. She is survived by sisters: Katharine Stevens, Spokane, Washington and Helen Harmon, Lake Stevens, Washington, niece: Karen Bulls (Michael) and their children, Jack and Elliot and nephew: Michael (Natalie) and Marley of Hailey, Idaho. A graveside service was held at the Canyon View Cemetery, Summerland B.C. (next to her parents) on August 3, 2013. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Chilliwack Senior Veteran Center, 9233 Main Street on Thursday, August 29th, 2013 at 12 noon.
