A tax petition calling on council to have more fiscal restraint has garnered more than 1,250 signatures. About 40 residents packed into council chambers on Monday night to show support for the petition, which was presented to council by Ray Zervini. “The residents of Hope believe that we’re being taxed enough for what we’re getting and we believe now is the time to look at maybe cutting services or cutting costs,” he said. “We’ve had enough of the tax increases. We just can’t afford to live

in Hope or any other municipality and receive the taxes that we are.” The petition demands zero tax increases for the next three years and a review of all current and future spending. Zervini said the names on the petition represent one signature per tax residence or business. Council was also given a list of suggested tax saving measures by Zervini’s group that include cutting district office staff by 25 per cent, reducing council to four members before the next election, removing foremen positions from public works, re-evaluating the fire chief position (i.e. amalgamate fire chief with the regional district and local

First Nations to offset costs), renegotiating the RCMP building lease, re-evaluating the number of police officers in Hope, renegotiating road use costs with Nestlé Waters and seeking water royalties of 0.05/ bottle. “We’re looking at the big picture and trying to throw some ideas and maybe open the discussion up to what may be a way of cutting our costs,” said Zervini. “We’re hoping that with this petition town council will look at ways of reducing taxes.” Mayor Susan Johnston expressed her gratitude to residents for taking the time to provide council with input.

“We will take everything you say seriously and we will deal with it as we can,” she said. “If we can’t put taxes up, then we have to cut deep. The cutting is going to start very shortly.” Coun. Peter Robb pointed out that council did make several cuts this year in the budget. Given the concerns raised by residents, he said another “hard look” is in order, but noted with cuts comes a reduction in services. “All of us are taxpayers and all us want to do the best we can for the community,” he said. “All of our taxes went up. You can bet that this council is on the same page.”

A group of local children, aged six to 13, spent five hours retrieving litter from the bottom of the lake, equipped with gloves, goggles, baskets, ropes, kayaks, and many bins. The clean-up operation involved some of the children diving to a depth of two-three metres to fill baskets with the litter. When the baskets were full, they were raised and brought to a lakeside cleaning crew made up of other children, who rinsed and sorted the litter into bins. The bins were then transported by kayak one at a time to the beach. The cleanup resulted in a total of 10 large trash bins brimming to the top.

Highway Thru Hell returns Sept. 3 Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

The wait is over: a new season of Highway Thru Hell premiers Sept. 3. Last season, steep hills, lethal drop-offs, killer rockslides, and the worst weather in a decade captivated audiences, with Highway Thru Hell ranking as the No. 1 series premiere in the Discovery Channel’s history. Jamie Davis and his heavy rescue crew are now back for another winter on the treacherous mountain highways. “Season two throws us some curves,” said Davis. “There are a lot of really great epic episodes. The quality of the show has improved and they are very well done.” With the winter forecast for 2013, Davis bulked up his team with new drivers and invested in his biggest fleet yet. He now has 28 trucks between two locations. The company expanded to Fort McMurray earlier this year. “There’s a big misunderstanding that people think that we just left town. We did move some of our operations out of town but not everything,” said Davis. “No matter what I planned to do and what direction I wanted to take, life always threw me a curveball and took me to a totally different place then I thought I would be. We go from the lowest of lows and back up again.” Davis acknowledges that there are several stakeholders in addition to the heavy rescue crews that help keep the roads clear every winter, including VSA Highway Maintenance Ltd., Emil Anderson Maintenance, the RCMP, BC Ambulance, and the B.C. Ministry of  Transportation. Davis said statistics have shown that accidents have reduced from 75 major crashes to 37 since the premiere of the first season. “It gives the public a big mes-

sage about safety and it actually helps to reduce accidents,” he added. Local tourism also appears to be benefiting from the show, which can now be seen worldwide in 170 countries. Davis said he has visitors from around the world visit the tow yard in Hope at least four times a day. He also receives more than 100 Facebook messages about the show daily. “It is an amazing road we’re on,” said Davis. “I don’t think anybody thought it would be so out-ofcontrol popular.” Season two will feature dynamic visuals including 3D maps depicting the locations of the wrecks and new animations taking viewers back in time to the moment of impact, heightening the wreck stories featured on Highway Thru Hell. Also, building on first season’s original nine episodes and “After the Crash” special, season two grows to 13 hours, plus four Highway Thru Hell: Reloaded episodes. These new “reloads” feature at least five minutes of new content (extended scenes and bo-

nus footage), plus an on-screen graphics package that includes the best viewer Twitter comments, “factoids” about the production and the crashes. The first Highway Thru Hell: Reloaded episode revisits the season one finale special “After the Crash,” and caps the Labour Day marathon on Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. The updated special includes new footage and catches up with Davis’ crew to set up the start of the new season. The twists and turns of Highway Thru Hell will also extend online with full episodes (one week after broadcast), “Highway Heroes” vignettes profiling the people who work to keep the highway safe, and in-depth analysis from the cast and crew of some of this season’s most memorable wrecks. Viewers can revisit the crashes and conflicts from season one as the Discovery Channel presents a nine-hour Labour Day marathon on Sept. 2 beginning at 10 a.m. New episodes of Highway Thru Hell air at 10 p.m. on Tuesdays starting Sept. 3.

Century of cooperation commemorated

Chief Bob Pasco, left, (chair of the Nlaka’pamux Nation Tribal Council) joined Boston Bar First Nation Chief Dolores O’Donaghey, John Field (executive secretary of the Pacific Salmon Commission), MP Cathy McLeod, Lorraine Loomis of the Swinomish Tribe, Anne Callahan (U.S. Consul General in Vancouver) and Chief Fred Sampson of the Siska First Nation in unveiling new plaques commemorating 100 years of cooperation on Fraser River salmon. Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

This year marks a century of international cooperation in conserving and managing Fraser River salmon. The Hell’s Gate rockslides of 1913 and 1914 forever changed the river ecosystem and the migration of sockeye to every major tributary in the B.C. Interior. “The rockslides began a century of disagreement, cooperation, fights, and resolution among thousands of people who have worked to get millions of fish around the blockage here at Hell’s Gate and

spawning through the waters here just as nature first intended,” said John Field, executive secretary of the Pacific Salmon Commission. “This centennial is a rare opportunity to gather leaders from Canada, the United States, and First Nations tribes to commemorate their hard work over the last 100 years, hear each other’s stories, share points of view and maybe learn how to handle the next 100 years.” Many politicians and dignitaries from both sides of the border were on hand last Thursday at Hell’s Gate to mark the milestone and unveil two

commemorative plaques. Several First Nations representatives were also in attendance to share their perspective on the historic slides and the impact on their people. “Losing the number one protein resource was devastating to all the tribes above Hell’s Gate,” said Chief Fred Sampson of the Siska First Nation. “Without these fishways, I think the salmon would probably have disappeared.” Sampson pointed out that an estimated 20 per cent of the upriver First Nation population died due to malnutrition and starvation following the

with members from tribes all over the province traveling to Hell’s Gate to salvage some of the trapped salmon. In 1937, a treaty between the United States and Canada provided the foundation for a largescale formal cooperation to restore and manage Fraser River salmon through the International Pacific Salmon Fisheries Commission. The IPSFC facilitated the construction of massive concrete fishways around the blockage at Hell’s Gate in 1945 and 1946. The 1937 treaty was eventually replaced in 1985 with a new agreement to cover regional salmon fisheries from Alaska through B.C. to the U.S. Northwest via the Pacific Salmon Commission.

disaster. There was also a huge impact to moose and deer in the valley because there were no fish. In 1913, the first massive rock slides at Hell’s Gate blocked the passage of sockeye salmon en route to their spawning grounds throughout the Fraser River system in the Interior. Quickly, efforts began to assess the situation and develop lasting solutions to protect the fisheries of commercial and cultural importance to both Canada and the United States. While small-scale efforts to move fish around the blockage started immediately, it would take years of dialogue before consensus could be reached on the scope of the problem and a practical solution.

Fisheries officers have doubled their patrols on the lower Fraser River to battle poachers who are illegally catching threatened sockeye salmon to sell into the black market. All fishing for sockeye has been shut down in response to a low run size and dangerously high river temperatures to ensure as many of the salmon get upriver to spawn as possible. But Department of Fisheries and Oceans area director Herb Redekopp said the “fullout conservation closure” hasn’t deterred illegal fishing on the river. “Last night we ran into another group of poachers,” he said Friday, adding officers made arrests and seized illegally caught salmon, gear and a boat. “That’s happened nightly in numerous

groups and in different areas of the river.” He said eight vessels had been seized as of Friday, along with 50 nets and 27 investigations are in progress that have or are expected to result in charges under the Fisheries Act. The most intense illegal fishing is happening between Surrey and Spuzzum, in various hot spots around Agassiz, Chilliwack and the

Fraser Canyon. He said poaching can be particularly lethal at the canyon, where salmon heading upriver use backeddies to rest and an illegal net dropped in can quickly pull up a full set. Redekopp said DFO is using night vision imaging, remote cameras, helicopters and other aircraft to detect probable poachers for interception on the ground.

“We’re using every bit of technology available to us as well as intelligence that we’re gathering from the public.” No commercial or recreational fishing for sockeye has been allowed this year. Pent-up demand for sockeye has driven prices up and prompted much more illegal fishing than in past years, he said. “There’s a huge illegal

marketplace for black market salmon.” Fishermen are getting about $20 a fish, Redekopp said, and some buyers are paying up to $50 each. Some of the fish being sold now may have been caught in aboriginal food fisheries that were legally conducted earlier in the summer but are not authorized for sale. Redekopp said many poachers busted on the river appear to have long criminal histories and may be fishing as a source of easy money to feed drug addictions. The maximum penalty for illegal fishing is a $100,000 fine, along with forfeiture of gear, vessel or vehicle, and up to two years in jail. Repeat offenders do sometimes get jail time, Redekopp said. He said officers are also targeting people who buy illegally caught sockeye. Fish sold out of the back of a truck or doorto-door are almost certainly poached, he said, adding people should buy from a recognized commercial outlet.

An exceptionally sunny, dry summer helped push BC Parks to an all-time record number of reservations at provincial campgrounds. More than 115,000 camping reservations were made through the province’s Discover Camping service, up 12 per cent from last year. Campers were allowed to make reservations at more campsites and

campgrounds, including Kleanza Creek, Martha Creek, Chilliwack Lake, Mable Lake and Bowron Lake, increasing the number of reservable sites to more than 5,000 at 95 parks. While Labour Day is the traditional end to the regular camping season, BC Parks officials are trying to pump up shoulder season camping.

They say campsites are quieter in the fall, with attractions like spawning salmon in some areas. It’s also the time of year when “long-stay camping” is permitted, allowing campers to stay four to six weeks at reduced rates in select parks. Seniors over 65 also get camping discounts from Sept. 3 to June 14 next year.

Anderson Creek Campground in Boston Bar was host to 145 gold panners from around the world last weekend. The annual Fraser River Gold Panning Championships sees children, teens and adults compete in several different events to see who can recover a predetermined amount of gold flakes from a bucket of pay dirt the fastest. “Everyone enjoyed it so much that 80 per cent of the campground is booked for next year,” said organizer Dan Moore, who is better known as Yukon Dan. “The competition was a huge success. We hope to see everybody again next year. Everybody went home with ‘Gold Fever.’” The Fraser River Gold Panning Championships kicked off with two days of workshops and demonstrations in Yale. The competition began on Saturday, with the top third in each category moving on to the Sunday finals. Numerous prizes were handed out, including chainsaw carvings of gold miners and pieces of amethyst from Brazil with mining scenes depicted on them.

Opinion

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

Senate scandal continues The latest revelation from the ongoing Senate expense scandal is that Saskatchewan Senator Pamela Wallin will likely be asked to repay about $120,000 in expenses. This comes as a result of an external audit of her expenses, which in about two years were more than  $300,000. While Prime Minister Stephen Harper has worked to try and reform the Senate from within since winning power in 2006, it is clear that this institution just doesn’t get it. It is notable that two of the most profligate senators in the spending department, Wallin and Mike Duffy, were longtime TV journalists who regularly reported on numerous scandals in Ottawa. They join two other senators, Mac Harb and Patrick Brazeau, in showing Canadians how out of touch the Senate is with the real folks who pay taxes to support this kind of behaviour. All but Harb were appointed by Harper. Harper’s government has now asked the Supreme Court of Canada to rule on just how Senate reform can proceed, as the institution is mandated in the constitution and thus is very hard to change. But it clearly has a lot of institutional problems which are deep-rooted. The vast majority of the public support abolition at present. If there was a national referendum on abolition, it would likely pass in each province, which would probably be enough of a popular mandate to support a constitutional change. But provinces don’t give up powers easily, and all it would take is one province which decided to go against the popular will for whatever reason it deems appropriate. The Senate is badly in need of radical reform. Perhaps a first step would be to limit senators’ expenses to a modest maximum amount which would cover real expenses run up in the course of their duties, such as travel to meetings and modest accommodations when out of town. The Conservatives have a majority in the Senate, thanks to a raft of appointments from Harper. If the government wants to truly do something to remove at least some of the stench from the Senate, it must act swiftly to show the public that it takes misappropriations of public money seriously. Otherwise, the Senate scandal will be a potent factor in the next federal election, and the outrage by many members of the public won’t be good news for the governing party. – Black Press

Citizenship should not require a pledge to England There are many traditions that have survived from colonial Great Britain to present day Canada, the best example being our parliamentary and judicial systems. The Queen of England serves as our Head of State in a symbolic link between the monarchy and our constitutional democracy. That link provides a connection to our past that offers us a clue of who we are and where we come from. As a result, every foreign-born person who applies for citizenship of our nation is required to pledge an oath or allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second.

And that can be a deal breaker the power of the British monarfor many would-be citizens here. chy.

My wife, who is from Portugal, swore an oath to the Queen when she took citizenship, but she’s far more likely to tell you the history of how Portugal’s line of royals was overthrown for a Portuguese Republic over a century ago. Speaking of which, there are Republicans from commonwealth countries like Ireland and Australia, who have resisted the Crown for centuries and who continue to fight for a state that is “res publica” and not the concern of monarchs.

grants to Canada today are from the ancient cultures of India and China and this symbolic oath of fealty seems silly. As a fifth generation Canadian whose family came from Scotland in 1853—another kingdom with a rich history of resisting the British Crown and is currently working toward independence— I never had to swear fealty to Her Majesty. I don’t see why others should be forced to do what I haven’t. Let us retire this needless tradition and instead have our new citizens swear allegiance to Canada and her people, whoever they may be and wherever they may come from.

CCER District of Hope page appreciated S Reg gis Registration I’d like to extend my appreciation of the monthly district summary in The Hope Standard.  I find it meets my, and I am sure many other voters, interest in councils activities. Also, a personal thanks for the four-way stop on Kawka-

wa Lake Road and Seventh Avenue. I always found it a bit risky navigating onto Kawkawa Lake Road as most drivers were moving too fast going west, as the hill was (as noted) a real blind spot. Big thanks for the Wi-Fi

Patronage appointments need to end Lately there have been calls for the abolition of the Canadian Senate. I think that would be a mistake, but clearly the Senate needs fixing. I have one suggestion. The Senate serves a purpose. It reviews policy issues outside of partisan elected politics. It can check the unfettered power of the prime minister. It is supposed to speak for regional interests, not those of the prime minister.

Each province has a fixed number of senators. Under the constitution, they are appointed by the prime minister. Amending the constitution is effectively impossible. A “Triple E Senate� (Equal, Elected, Effective) proposal was defeated with the 1992 Charlottetown Accord Referendum, perhaps because that accord attempted too many other things. But the provinces will never give

up what they have, without a deal back. In B.C., that would require a referendum, which would likely defeat any side deals. Senate elections would not work, without reallocation of the numbers, because the underrepresented provinces (B.C. and Alberta) would be further underrepresented as the elected senators, rightfully, exercised their elected powers. The prime minister could

Bell, Rogers, and Telus combined, the same benefits the government had set aside to help new entrants. These are: 1 - The ability to buy two of the four available blocks of wireless spectrum when the incumbents are each only allowed to bid on one. 2 - The ability to buy the smaller wireless carriers like Wind and Mobilicity, while the incumbents are now prohibited from doing so. 3 - The ability to simply use the networks our Canadian companies invested billions of dollars

in, and took 30 years to build. Who cares, you think? We all should care. Harper says he wants competition, but this policy effectively means no competition for Verizon in the spectrum auction or in bidding on the smaller carriers, so they can buy both on the cheap. That means we the taxpayers get shafted on the first (the money from the auction goes into the same government coffers our tax dollars do), the investors of the smaller carriers get shafted on

the second, and we all get shafted as our mutual funds and pensions take a beating on the third (perhaps you didn’t know that a large portion of Canada’s pension funds and mutual funds are heavily invested in Canadian telecom firms). Verizon has the dollars to compete on the first two and win, and certainly has the dollars to build its own network, which would create jobs and economic benefits in Canada. We shouldn’t be giving these assets away, but getting full dollar value for them.

I can’t believe Prime Minister Stephen Harper is gifting away Canadian assets and tax dollars and seems to think this is good for Canadians. Worse, from the comments I’ve seen posted in response to media articles, it seems many members of the public agree. The issue isn’t allowing or not allowing Verizon to compete in Canada. Yes, they should be allowed to come in.  The issue is under what terms. Harper’s statement means he’s planning to give a behemoth, which is four times the size of

agree that he would only appoint senators from names submitted by the provinces. Those senators would truly be loyal to their home provinces, and the Senate would cease to be a home for the prime minister’s loyalists. This can be done on the commitment of the prime minister alone. If he is serious about Senate reform, he just has to do it. Ian MacLeod

This past weekend saw 86 golfers from as far as Calgary, Comox, Vernon and Revelstoke enjoy great weather and excellent course conditions at the twoday Hope Ladies’ Annual Golf Tournament. Golfers enjoyed not only lush greens and fairways, but also new sand in all the bunkers. Bob Hasell presented Hope’s own Ellen Poole with the Finning Canada Trophy for overall low net winner. “I had my best round ever – and what a time to have it,” said Poole who was thrilled with the win. She proves you don’t have to get an early start in life at golf to excel at the game. “I took it up the year before I retired,” Poole said. “Hope Secondary School held a raffle and I won a Flex Pass for the golf club. I took a series of five lessons at Cultus Lake the year I started, and another five the following year.” She usually golfs three times a week, and plays three times a week for three months in the winter in Hemet, California with her husband. “I think that helps,” said Poole. “You never have a layoff period.” The weekend began with Friday’s practice round and evening appetizers organized by Monday morning’s ladies’ club members. A putting contest followed. After a full day of golfing on Saturday, players enjoyed a top notch turkey banquet prepared by chef Kerry Krahn and his crew, followed by a dance with non-stop live entertainment provided by Ron Ulrich from Surrey. Twenty-six net and gross prizes were awarded on Sunday evening. Bob Hasell presented the Emil Anderson Trophy to Belinda Steckler of Port Coquitlam for overall low gross, with her score of 170. Ellen Poole also captured overall low net. Hope ladies managed to bag eight out of 26 net and gross prizes. Local winners included: • Virginia White, 1st low gross in the 1st flight • Pam Smith, 1st low net in the 4th flight • Charlene Kelder, 2nd low gross in the 2nd flight • Jenny Chung, 2nd low gross in the 3rd flight • Angela Kim, 2nd low net in the 1st flight • Dodie Schiefermeier won 3rd low gross in the 2nd flight • Colleen Knight took 3rd low gross in the 3rd flight In addition, Virginia White snagged two of the total of 16 deuces scored. Other Hope winners included Fay Stewart for her KP on Saturday, and Virginia White, Ellen Poole, Jenny Chung, and Doreen Harper for their KPs on Sunday.

New art exhibit blends different styles and media Sara Lesztak Contributor

A kaleidoscope of style and media will be featured in the Hope Arts Gallery Back Room Aug. 31 to Sept. 28. Jenny Wolpert and Greta Smith present “Memory Images Reality,” a powerful collection of acrylic painting, encaustic work, mixed media, cold oil and wax work, pottery, and digital painting. Wolpert’s dynamic creativity draws from 30 years of Hope’s rich natural and social environment. “Creating art is a way of questioning and defining what we believe that we know, what we see, and what we feel,” she said. “As time changes memory, so does transmuting memory into an artistic image.” Smith, using mixed media, draws from her work in Bowen Island for transition houses. She expresses her awareness of women’s roles in the world. “The artwork I have been creating starts from a place of memory that also encompasses the telling of a story,” said Smith. “It is important to me to feel that the work is also grounded in a reality that makes sense to me.” Enjoy exploring what they consider their “adventure in art” at Hope Arts Gallery, 349 Fort Street. The reception is Aug. 31, from 7-9 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Chiefs kick off hockey season in Hope Barry Stewart Hope Standard

About 200 fans were on hand Tuesday evening at the Hope Arena for a pre-season match between the Chilliwack Chiefs and Coquitlam Express. The event got started in the parking lot, with live music by Darlene and Art Boucher starting two hours before the 7 p.m. puck drop. Hope Search and Rescue, Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning and the rec centre had information displays set up and some kids got a street hockey game going, with nets and equipment supplied by the rec centre. Before the start of the game, there was a memorial moment of silence for long-time Chiefs season ticket holder and Hope Minor Hockey supporter Caesar Soares, who passed away this summer. Lloyd Forman then dropped the ceremonial puck and Darlene Boucher led the crowd in the singing of O Canada. The spirited game was tied 2-2 at the end of the first frame, then the Express snapped in three goals in the first six minutes of the second and Chilliwack could only counter with one. The third period was scoreless. Shots on net totalled 30 for the Express and 11 for the Chiefs. About 15 friends and family came out to watch the Chiefs No. 15, Jordan Kawaguchi, grandson of Hope residents Mas and Judy Kawaguchi. The 16-year-old forward had a good chance to score on a partial breakaway late in the second period — but Express goalie Pierce Dushenko made a quick poke-check to negate the opportunity. Kawaguchi’s dad, Todd, played goalie for Hope Minor Hockey and the family now resides in Abbotsford, though Jordan is billeting in Chilliwack and attending Sardis Secondary. Jordan was drafted by the WHL Spokane Chiefs but signed with Chilliwack this spring. He is eligible for NCAA college scholarships as long as he stays in the BCJHL (junior A) program.

Celebrating the beginning of life for RACHELLE MORIN, who passed away on August 19, 2013 at the Fraser Hope Lodge at the age of 84 years. Rachelle is survived by her son Pierre, her three sisters; Simone, Francois, and MariePaul and her loving husband of nearly 50 years, Jean-Paul. Rachelle will be greatly missed by everybody who she met, even one time. God blessed you Rachelle. The angel came and took you out of your misery, and now you are in heaven forever; a place that you deserve. You will now be able to build snowmen as long as you want. Rachelle brought joy into the lives of many, with the stuffed animals she made, which were sold in such places as Eaton’s, The Bay, and Woodward’s, and are most likely living on in the hearts and memories of children and adults. You know life is made one ring at a time, and at the end of the life on earth, the chain is finished and everything is completely okay. At the end, Rachelle was so sick she lost all hope for recovery, her dignity was gone, and she was so sad every day. She knew the end was near. Thank God for sending His angels to bring her home. Now you can celebrate the beginning of a perfect life - Happiness, Joy and Peace! A Funeral Mass was celebrated at 11:00 am on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at Our Lady of Good Hope Roman Catholic Church, with Father Gordon Cook, celebrant. Rachelle will be resting at the Catholic Cemetery in Hope.
