Gary Abbott is relieved to see an end to an eagle poaching case that has dragged on for years. However, despite the expected mistrial, the traditional powwow dancer is angry about the criminalization of his culture. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS FILE

Eagle poaching case expected to end in mistrial Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Gary Abbott has been waiting for eight long years to be vindicated after facing charges for unlawful possession of eagle feathers. He was one of several charged in a high-profile poaching case launched in 2006 by the B.C. Conservation Office. Abbott’s lawyer, George Wool, informed him last week that a mistrial was about to be declared by the judge due to issues of disclosure. “I am elated,” Abbott told The Progress, before heading off for a short respite in Mexico. “It’s been a long, hard run. This was a fight that needed to be fought.”

He was originally charged, along with 10 others, with more than 21 counts under the BC Wildlife Act for illegally possessing and trafficking in dead wildlife. “We are the first to fight and win against these laws,” Abbott said, adding that he considers himself a “general” for his people. “Being aboriginal, the use of eagle feathers is part of our rights and title.” A traditional powwow dancer, Abbott said at the time that he had “lost” his spirit after being hit with the charges in 2006. “Who knew we would be criminals for possessing eagle feathers,” he wrote in a blog post. Tyrone McNeil, vice-president of Sto:lo Tribal Council, was thrilled to hear about the prospect

of a mistrial in this case. “We’re really glad it turned out this way. “There were so many hiccups and it stayed in process for so long. It should have been tossed out long before this,” said McNeil. “It seemed right from the getgo there was a vendetta declared against First Nations. I’m really glad someone decided this was sheer folly, to get it thrown out of the system and to let these guys get on with their lives.” Some of the accused like Abbott, are well-respected in Sto:lo traditional cultural circles, he said. “It’s shameful that they would be persecuted to this extent. It’s a clear case of rights and title that

should have been recognized,” said McNeil. “It was as if the judicial system was out to attack these men.” Even from the legal point of view, there were allegations of entrapment used by officers, which should have been factored in sooner. It was alleged in 2010 that undercover officers were dispatched to reserves to entice impoverished people to kill eagles for money. “We shouldn’t have to hold a permit. We have been harvesting eagle feathers for cultural purposes for eons,” stated McNeil, adding that only certain individuals are mandated in cultural circles to harvest wildlife.

Sally Ann is set to expand its footprint in Chilliwack. Salvation Army Chilliwack officials confirmed the recent purchase of the former Budget Car & Truck Rental site at 45748 Yale Road, next door to the Care & Share Centre. “Given what I understand from lawyers and everyone else involved, yes, we are now the current owners of the former Budget property,” said Major Larry Farley, executive director and pastor at Salvation Army of Chilliwack. The existing Sally Ann building has served them “well” for the past 30 years in ministry efforts. “But we have, for 28 years, had our eye on that property next door,” Major Farley underlined. When it came up for sale on the market, they moved decisively toward the purchase, “taking advantage of the generosity of the previous owner.” Although he declined to comment on the final purchase price for the Yale Road commercial property, its assessed value is $504,400, according to online data from BC Assessment. A new facility for the local Sally Ann is definitely in order, he says. “Yesterday wouldn’t be too soon. “We want to improve the service that we provide and the atmosphere in which we do it.” The need for a new facility is driven by a sharp increase in the number of programs they provide, and the burgeoning size of their clientele from marginalized community members.

Feds accused of ignoring Cohen’s sockeye solutions Salmon inquiry recommendations languish one year later Jeff Nagel Black Press Conservation groups are criticizing the federal government for inaction one year after the tabling of the Cohen Commission’s exhaustive report on how to halt the decline of Fraser River sockeye salmon. They say Justice Bruce Cohen’s 75 recommendations have languished following the $26-million inquiry, with no sign of meaningful

action from the federal government that dispatched him. “There are a lot of people disappointed,” Watershed Watch Salmon Society executive director Craig Orr said. “What was hailed by many as a blueprint to sustain sockeye into the future is starting to look a lot more like a government retreat.” Cohen focused in large part on the potential risk to wild salmon from net pen fish farms and urged transparent sharing of disease data by the farms. “We haven’t seen that yet,” Orr said, adding Ottawa should also take up Cohen’s call to change how it regulates aquaculture. “We want to see them fix the

conflicted mandate of government – on the one hand promoting salmon farming while on the other supposedly protecting wild fish.” Orr said the provincial government is moving to update B.C.’s Water Act, potentially adding some additional protections, but added it’s “a stretch” to think that will make up for the recent erosion of federal legislation protecting fish habitat. The Fisheries Act was amended last year so its ban on damaging habitat now only outlaws “serious harm” to stocks that are actually fished by commercial, sport or aboriginal users. Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea said in a statement the

government is continuing a Cohenrecommended moratorium on new salmon farms in the Discovery Islands zone near Campbell River and that it “will not be lifted for the foreseeable future.” Shea said the Cohen’s findings are helping guide day-to-day work protecting salmon. “We are responding to his recommendations not by producing another written document, but by taking concrete actions that make a real difference.” In a separate interview, Shea told Black Press the Cohen recommendations led to a doubling of fishing enforcement on the Pacific salmon fishery in August and September.

■ N OVEMBER N IGHT

Using aerial surveillance and on-water enforcement, fisheries officers seized 10 vessels and 66 nets this year, an increase from the previous year. Ottawa spends $65 million a year on Pacific salmon initiatives, $20 million of that directly tied to Fraser sockeye. John Fraser, a former fisheries minister and speaker of the House of Commons who once led an earlier four-year probe of B.C. salmon stocks, said Ottawa deserves credit for steering extra money to Pacific salmon projects, but scolded the lack of response to Cohen.

House fire linked to hash oil production A fire that severely damaged a Chilliwack home and sent residents scrambling for their lives has now been linked to the production of hash oil, local RCMP say. The fire broke out in the basement suite of a Rotary Street home on Oct. 26. When fire crews arrived, smoke was billowing from the structure and firefighters had to pull two residents through basement windows to safety. At the time, it was believed the fire started in the kitchen and was accidental. However, investigators say they have

since found evidence of the material used to make hash oil – a potent drug distilled from marijuana. On Tuesday, Oct. 29, with the assistance of the E Division Clandestine Lab Team, the Chilliwack RCMP Drug Section executed the search warrant on the Rotary Street residence. Removed from the scene was a quantity of Isopropyl alcohol, butane, a pressure cooker, and a quantity of marijuana shake, all precursor materials to make hash or “ weed” oil. “On their own, the chemicals seized are not necessarily dangerous, said Cpl.

Kurt Bosnell. “However, the process used to make hash oil involves heating large amounts of isopropyl alcohol on a stove or hot plate until it is brought to a boil. This process creates a volatile and dangerous situation,” he said. “We are fortunate that, with the quick response from the fire department, the fire was contained to the structure itself.” The incident is still under investigation. Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP Drug Section at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers, at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Chilliwack voters have two opportunities to learn more about their candidates for the upcoming school trustee byelection. Chilliwack District Parents’ Advisory Council has partnered with Chilliwack Teachers’ Association, and the Chilliwack branch of the Canadian Union of Public Employers to host two all-candidates meetings that will debate the issues of the school district. The first meeting is Thursday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. at Sardis secondary. The second is Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. at Chilliwack middle school. DPAC treasurer Don Davis will moderate. All-candidates meetings are an opportunity to not only meet the candidates, said DPAC president Gord Byers, but to also research which candidate will be the best representation for the community. “We want someone in there who’s going to answer the difficult questions and be a voice for parents – not just floating back and forth,” said Byers, speaking on behalf of Chilliwack parents. But it’s not just parents who should care, said CTA president Clint Johnston. Taxpayer dollars, regardless of whether you have children or not, fund education. “These children are the next generation of people going to come through our economic system, and the education they receive, the funding for that education, I can’t really think of much more that’s more important than those things,” said Johnston. “And the board controls that. “So if you want a say in how that works, you should make sure that you know what the people you’re electing are going to do.” With six candidates running for one available spot on the board of education, the meetings are expected to feature plenty of questions, discussion, debate and interaction. DPAC is accepting suggestions for questions that can be emailed to dpac@sd33.bc.ca. The byelection is on Nov. 30. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Canada’s top stand-up comic Steve Patterson is kicking off his B.C. tour in Chilliwack with his ‘This is Not Debatable!’ show at the Cultural Centre on Nov. 7. He’s coming with some well-aimed zingers, and the name of his comedy show is all about how it differs from his radio show. “In this show I will tackle everything I don’t get a chance to talk about on The Debaters,” he says with glee in an interview from London, Ont. with The Progress. As radio host and referee on CBC show The Debaters, with 750,000 weekly listeners, he tends to be a touch more circumspect with his fellow comedians. “I don’t want to step on their jokes. This show is everything I don’t get to do on the radio.” So it’s going to be

remain in the background because he’s just entered the food court. He half expects to be recognized and tackled by security. “As a kid, I was banned for life from this food court,” he says laughing. He’s actually there to take his dad out for his birthday dinner.

Growing up as the youngest of five boys, a lot of his joke material is based on his dad, John. “He believes I owe him for that,” he says. “And he’s not kidding either.” Patterson is also a bit of a news junkie. “I do like to stay up on what’s going on.” With the antics of figures like Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, it’s material made in heaven for a comedian, no? “I want to send him a thank-you card every week. There’s no better time to be a comedian in Canada than right now.” From the Senate scandal to Quebec hijinx, there’s a new topic daily. When he’s gigging across Canada, he likes to arrive in town, find out what’s happening and riff a bit on the places he visits. He’ll also be doing parodies, as he breaks into song periodically for a bit of comic relief. “Yes, I will be doing a few songs. I do my own choreography too, but you could hardly call it dancing.” Patterson just took the title of Male Standup of the Year again for 2013, an award he also won in 2011. “I was more than a little surprised to win given the fact I was up against some fantastically funny guys, all of whom are friends of mine: Pete Zedlacher, Mark Forward, Peter Anthony and Ron Sparks.” He didn’t even vote for himself in the Canadian Comedy Awards. “I voted for a different comic. I had already won this title, and it was great to be recognized by my peers. I can hold my own, but I wanted to spread it around.” Tickets for Steve Patterson “This Is Not Debatable!” Nov. 7, 7:30 at the Centre, $42 (+charges may apply), For more visit www. shantero.com or www. stevepatterson.ca. jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

FVRD tightens leash on aggressive dogs

sK>hEdZWK^/d/KE

A bylaw to control aggressive and dangerous dogs in two electoral areas has been approved in principle by the Fraser Valley Regional District. That means residents in electoral areas D (Popkum and Bridal Falls) and E (Columbia Valley/Chilliwack River Valley/Lindell Beach) may soon have someone to call when faced with dangerous dogs in their neighbourhoods. Currently, FVRD offers animal control services only within the city of Chilliwack. Additionally, the city of Abbotsford has a unique arrangement to send dogs to the Chilliwack pound. The cost for extending animal control services to areas D and E is about $45,000 annually. It would require residential property taxes to rise by an average of $14.65 annually. The bylaw has gone to the province for approval. The FVRD is targeting a start date of January 2014. Three other regions, electoral areas C, F, and G, remain interested in the service as well but

are further investigating funding requirements. Because these areas are further removed from FVRD’s pound facility operations in Chilliwack, the cost to residents increases. Quick response is also crucial, explained FVRD chair Sharon Gaetz. “FVRD staff will be investigating partner-

For the tribal council official, one of the most telling substories of the case was that the lead conservation officer on the case, Richard Grindrod, was alleged to have enacted financial improprieties with government credit cards when he testified. “But still the judge allowed his evidence to stand in this case, which we don’t understand.” The matter was galling given the “new” relationship that First Nations have supposedly forged with the province, and improvements with the federal government. “This showed us, that on the ground, things hadn’t changed much,” said McNeil. Under the existing BC Wildlife Act, penalties for poaching can be up to $50,000 for the first offence and $100,000 for trafficking of wildlife. First Nations leaders held a protest in downtown Vancouver in 2010 wearing eagle feather regalia, and railing against criminalizing cultural use of eagle feathers. There are still other similar cases before the courts, so this is a crucial win, Abbott said. “Hopefully this will set in motion a precedent,” he said. And he wants the eagle feather bustles that were confiscated as evidence to be returned to him post haste. “I want my feathers back. I want them back regardless.” The bustles appear in a 2006 video on Youtube where Abbott dances to a song that has been written just for him. “I only wore them once.” The next court appearance would have touched on the issue of rights and title, but it never got that far. “It would have been sweeter to win on the question of rights and title, but what happened is still a victory.” The judge’s reasons for the mistrial decision are expected later this month.

About 160 meals are served a day in the soup kitchen and the shelter is at 140 per cent capacity. Every year, thousands get in line for emergency food hampers. “People are just finding themselves in desperate need,” says Major Farley. Three decades ago the space housed a thrift store, kitchen and a few offices. Since then they’ve added eight to 10 programs to serve the needy on a variety of different levels. They felt they had to act swiftly. “We feel we have to address this issue,” he says. “It won’t double our space but it will give us some real flexibility for sure.” Expansion plans are not set in stone yet, however, a building committee was struck only six months ago. “So we are just in the initial stages, and the purchase of the building will be the first step.”

“Quite frankly, there isn’t any excuse for it,� Fraser said. “And I say that as a lifetime Conservative.� He was among critics who warn the salmon outlook is further clouded by the Fisheries Act changes and deep cuts to biologists and other Department of Fisheries and Oceans staff. DFO staff are acting without new regulations spelling out how changes to the act will be applied, he said, and increasingly with inadequate

research. “If you don’t have the science, you don’t know what you’re doing,� he said. “You’re diminishing your capacity to know what you need to know to do your duty.� Cohen’s three-volume report did not point to any single culprit for the two-decade slide in sockeye numbers. But he targeted 11 recommendations at the aquaculture industry and said warmer ocean water due to climate change is likely a big factor, in combination with others. – with files from Tom Fletcher

R AESIDE

‘Zero tolerance’ has that no-nonsense cachet that makes it a staple among the law-and-order crowd. Its appeal is in its simplicity, and the belief that compromise means concession. But there is a danger when it is administered too broadly – something that is particularly relevant in schools. Last week a policy committee with the Chilliwack School District recommended the district’s drug and alcohol policy remain unchanged, arguing that students need the boundaries set out in its zero tolerance approach – automatic expulsion, with little hope of appeal. The Chilliwack school board agreed. All except trustee Barry Neufeld. “This policy is archaic, punitive, and not worthy of a modern education system,” said Neufeld in a sharply worded critique. Today, on page 12 of this paper, trustee Neufeld expands on his point. And it is worth a read. He argues that the district’s zero tolerance policy risks alienating the very people the school district purportedly hopes to help. It is an arbitrary and reactionary approach that ignores more imaginative and consultative programs that move beyond simple punishment. Restorative justice is not a new concept. It’s been around the community for years, and the approach has been implemented in schools throughout North America for even longer. It begins with the belief that an inclusive and consultative approach can deal with the original offence, while creating an environment where repetition is unlikely. To be clear, it does not reward harmful or hurtful behavior. It does not suggest that students should be without boundaries, or that drug use and alcohol consumption amongst school kids is okay. The point is to employ the best practices available to ensure that kids who do cross that line are guided back and not abandoned to the consequences of their mistake. We can solve the problem at its root so it doesn’t happen again, or kick it down the road and leave others to deal with it. Problem solving is a hot topic in education. But words mean little if they are not backed up by action. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

L OCALLY G LOBAL

A major earthquake in B.C. is not a matter of if In the past couple of weeks, there were four earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest of a magnitude 4.0 or greater. From October 1st to November 1st, there were 84 quakes recorded in southwestern B.C including three shimmers in the Abbotsford/Chilliwack area. OK, so they weren’t much – 2 pointers on the magnitude scale.  The ground beneath our feet is constantly shaking and jostling, so much so that it was in the sights of the Insurance Bureau of Canada when they designed two scenarios to predict the economic consequences of a future great quake, one on the west coast of Vancouver Island and Washington State and the other in the Quebec/ Ontario region which is also a seismic zone.  Last week IBC released its 345page report, billed as the most comprehensive study of its kind in Canada. The hypothetical sce-

nario on the west coast was a 9.0 quake 75 km west of Vancouver Island at a depth of 11 km. The cost? Some $75 billion. The last earthquake impact study in Canada was done in 1992 by Munich Re based in Germany, one of the world’s leading re-insurers. IBC wanted a comprehensive up-to-date look Margaret at the financial EVANS consequences of a major quake in Canada, especially in light of events around the world in the past decade and the pressing need for preparedness for catastrophic events. Recent devastating earthquakes affecting populated and wide reaching areas include the Indonesian great quake in 2004

at magnitude 9.1 which triggered the tsunami that killed over 280,000 people, Japan (M9.0 in 2011), Chile (M8.8 in 2010), New Zealand (M7.0 in 2010), and Turkey (M7.1 in 2011). In 2012 there was the M7.7 earthquake off Haida Gwaii in October and the Banda Sea (M7.1) in December as well as earthquakes in Guatemala and Myanmar. Globally in 2013 there have been 15 earthquakes of a magnitude 7.0 or more. Are we ready for this? According to IBC’s report, Canada records about 4,000 earthquakes annually. The majority of them are small and unfelt but about 24 are significant and they are concentrated in the two study areas of B.C.’s west coast and southern Quebec/southeastern Ontario. But these two relatively small targeted geographical zones actually represent 40 per cent of the nation’s population, making

them strategically and economically very important.  In the face of a major quake (magnitude 7.0-7.9) or great quake (magnitude 8.0 or more) in the Pacific Northwest, life as we know it would profoundly change. Buildings, roads, bridges, airports, seaports, power stations, hospitals, pipelines (both those carrying water or oil), buried services, transmission towers and communications, and mass transit systems are all at risk of damage or destruction. Thousands of people are at risk of being killed, displaced or isolated. A tsunami off the west coast of Vancouver Island could re-arrange the coastline, threatening the survival of communities like Ucluelet or Tofino. There are the destructive consequences of liquefaction in Delta, Richmond, and other sealevel reclaimed areas. The risk

of flooding would affect cities, towns, coastlines, rivers and their tributaries. Hillside structures would be at risk of landslides. Fires could be hard to contain if fire fighters are unable to reach them due to road damage or a water supply for their hoses has collapsed. The initial quake would be followed by thousands of aftershocks that would add to the damage and persist for weeks, months or perhaps a year. No wonder the report pegged the potential economic destruction at $75 billion. According to the Geological Survey of Canada, southwestern B.C. is especially at high risk with a 30 per cent chance of a significant earthquake delivering substantial damage in the next 30 years. It’s time to get prepared for this.

Did you move into the area recently?

Happy ‘Orange and Black Day’ because they don’t like it, they have to take it away from other people. When I was in school we had the choice. Children these days (in certain schools) don’t get that.   We couldn’t wear overly gory stuff, or “skanky” costumes (didn’t stop some people), but we had the choice. We went to get a coffee this morning at Tim Horton’s and a zebra took our money. So work-

places allow it but not schools? It is so sad our rights and our choices are being taken away from us. Geez, we can’t even say Merry Christmas without some people taking offense to it. The world is changing, some in a good way but a lot of bad stuff too. Next year I will be sending my daughter in her costume. I want to teach my daughter to fight for what she believes in, big or small.

century!   So, this is an important time of year for me to pass on to my children.   They are taught to be thankful, kind, and to use their imaginations!   We also spend the month (sometimes longer) preparing costumes, decorations and more.  We open our doors to anyone dressed for the occasion.   This year, however, our neighbourhood was very understated and dark. It was truly disappointing.   I have never seen so many blocks with lights out!  

Too many people think Halloween is a thing of greed, but there is so much more to it than candy.  It’s time we bring back Halloween as a community celebration, and make it a positive experience for all. We did end up driving our children to another neighbourhood that seemed more active and friendly.   So, I just wanted to take the time to thank those generous people who opened their doors to us and who greeted us kindly and complimented our children and

most of all, took part in the enjoyment of the evening.  Your hospitality made the evening and another year positively thrilling for these young spirits!   I hope to see more communities come alive again and come together in the tradition of celebrating a time when people (adults and children) can dress up, have fun and maybe just let loose for a day.

Light rail best option

Veterans won’t forget

I agree with Robin Yager, Commuter rail is better than bus, (Progress, Oct. 31). Light rail is our solution, not only for the environment, but to our LA freeway-type parking lots. The mayors of Chilliwack and Abby and the B.C. government should be jumping at the idea of light rail. Instead, they are being fed the idea that more buses are our solution. The city of Portland, Oregon’s downtown was a big mess. The mayor changed conditions to reduce vehicle traffic, make it more foot and bicycle friendly, added more buses, routes and longer schedules. Then he added light rail, to get people out of their cars and use transit: It worked. Portland, Oregon had one of the worst downtowns anywhere; It is now “a model” for all other cities to follow. The mayors of Chilliwack and Abby, and members of the B.C. government should go down to Portland and see how Portland does it. More and more cities are adding light rail.

Mark Strahl has pointed out in his letter that the most odious provisions in the Veterans’ Charter have been corrected. What he doesn’t tell us is that the compensation that injured veterans receive is only a fraction of what WCB recipients or persons injured in car accidents get. I will also never forget a letter that was published in this newspaper a few years ago by Mr. Strahl defending his father’s abstinence from a vote on military pensions that was defeated. His letter essentially said that family was more important than tens of thousands of retired soldiers. I would like to call attention to the lawsuit of Major Mark Campbell of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry who lost his legs, one testicle, a ruptured eardrum and other injuries. He now suffers from depression and PTSD. He and others have started a class action suit to receive reasonable compensation but the government is fighting them tooth and nail. The Attorney General of Canada recently lost a Supreme Court of British Colombia decision allowing the lawsuit to continue. As Remembrance Day approaches I can only say; I will not forget / Je me souviens.

I believe I must clarify my position regarding School District 33’s Policy 500 on Alcohol and Drugs. After spending a lifetime working with addicted youth, both professionally and personally, I think my opinion should Barry have NEUFELD some relevance. The point I was emphasizing was that we educators claim we want to increase our Graduation Rates, but at the first sign of trouble, our policy has the effect of progressively rejecting the troubled students. When I was first on the board of education, every trustee would get a list of the students who had dropped out of school that month, and we would attempt to contact them to find out the reasons and encourage them to return. In every case, the dropouts explained they were feeling disconnected and unwelcome, and several admitted this was because of their use of illicit drugs. Some of these young people returned much later to complete their graduation requirements, but most didn’t.  I have been to the funerals of too many twenty-something young people who had been caught in the vicious cycle of drug abuse which began when they were in middle and secondary school.. Ten years ago a youthful trustee, Alex McAulay and I attempted to rid the School District of its’ archaic “Zero Tolerance” policy on drugs. The accepted “best practices” in treating addictions today and provincial government policy are a more supportive approach called harm reduction. Alas, our efforts fell on deaf ears. Advocates of the current SD33 policy

society.  If we sincerely want to improve our graduation rates and prepare our students to enter society as contributing, law abiding citizens, then we need to spend more time with and provide more resources for those students who are struggling. Some of them may have prickly, unlikable personalities: It takes time and effort to connect with them. Rejecting them by forcing them to change schools maybe more efficient, but it is less humane and frankly it doesn’t work. Most people know of my passion for restorative practices. Punishment rarely changes behavior and there are more enlightened consequences. Most importantly, drug abusing teenagers need to understand how their sickness harms everyone around them.  For those who still think I am out to lunch, before they start making policy affecting addicted youth, they should read David Sheff’s recent book “Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America’s Greatest Tragedy” (available on Amazon)  After struggling with various bureaucracies who didn’t help his addicted son, Mr. Sheff finally had the experience that every parent dreads: the death of his own child. Based on the latest research in psychology, neuroscience and medicine, David Sheff has written a book that is a leap beyond the traditional approaches to prevention and treatment of addiction and the mental illnesses that accompany it.  Needless to say, I would like to know what position our by election candidates for the board of education have on this issue. I am not exaggerating when I say: it is a matter of life and death.   Barry Neufeld, M.A. Trustee, Chilliwack Board of Education Chilliwack School District

500 argue that they are not “kicking kids out.” They are enforcing rules while at the same time, allowing the student to get an education: they just have to attend a different school. And they are referred to appropriate professionals. I say that if a young person’s drug or alcohol problem has become so severe that it is apparent in school, there are serious problems in their lives that need to be addressed: and these are best addressed in the context of that student’s historical support group: their friends who they have been with since kindergarten. Due to my father’s transfer, I had to  change high schools for grade 11 and I know how traumatic that can be. Our high schools run on different schedules and semester cycles. A student cannot simply switch from one school to another and keep taking the same courses. All too often, the switch from one school to another before the end of the year means failing that whole grade. Plus they are “social pariahs”: all the staff and students in the new school know they are “bad kids” “the stoners” and so they are shunned. Meanwhile, they are referred to professional alcohol and drug counselors so they can be “fixed.”  Anyone working with an addicted youth knows that the whole family system and social support network needs to change: the dependents AND the co-dependents. How can a professional counselor, trained in harm reduction work collaboratively with a school bureaucracy that insists the student must be totally abstinent to have the right to an education? We are so out of step! What about the national Liberal leader and the mayor of Toronto? Young people get disillusioned and bitter when they see the hypocrisy in our

B.C. trying to revive climate program Black Press VICTORIA – The B.C. government has reached out to U.S. states and the domestic clean energy industry in an effort to keep its greenhouse gas reduction goals in sight. Energy Minister Bill Bennett hopes to have details out by the end of the year for a “modest” clean energy program he promised to private power developers at a conference in Vancouver this week. With BC Hydro projecting an electricity surplus in the near future, there won’t be another clean power call any time soon for runof-river, wind and other producers, Bennett said in an interview. A priority will be energy development for aboriginal

communities, which have used small power production to get off diesel generators and to generate new income. The new commitment comes as BC Hydro continues weeding out proposals that haven’t delivered on power purchase contracts, in order to cut down on the utility’s growing debt. The government also signed an agreement this week with western U.S. states called the Pacific Coast Collaborative, to extend efforts to put a regional price on carbon. California has launched its own cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions, and B.C. continues to administer a carbon tax on fossil fuels imposed in 2006. B.C. Environment Minister Mary Polak

signed the agreement in San Francisco with Washington Governor Jay Inslee, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber and California Governor Jerry Brown. Kitzhaber said more than 500,000 people on

the North American west coast now work in green economy jobs, and the region will lead the way in the future. “We are here to reject the myth that jobs and the environment are in conflict,” he said.

November: An ode to facial hair growth The Progress Zach Galifianakis be gone. Teacher David Shepherd gave Sardis secondary students his electric razor, on Friday, and told them to have at her in the name of No-Shave November. After two months of growing his beard and mustache, it was time to start anew, he said. Throughout the year, Shepherd regularly sports a well-coiffed,

trimmed beard, but in preparation for the kickoff of the school’s inaugural No-Shave November campaign on Friday, he let it grow. And grow. And grow. “It’s not a duck dynasty beard, it’s not that bad,” Shepherd said prior to the kickoff. “It’s kind of like Joaquin Phoenix, when he went off the deep end; that unkempt, shaggy look… or Zach Galifianakis. Looking at him is like looking in a mirror.

“Buyers Remorse” and “Sellers Remorse”. Fortunately neither one of these conditions is contagious to Realtors. An important part of their job is to help sellers and buyers through their buying or selling jitters with understanding and advice. What if you make an offer on your perfect house and your Realtor discovers that it already has an accepted offer? Don’t lose all hope! Your Realtor may suggest that you make a back-up offer, so that you will be right there and ready if the prospective buyers don’t go through with the purchase. The first rule of being “second in line” is to remain emotionally unattached to that house and to keep looking. Things can go wrong with the first contract. For example as mentioned earlier in this column, the prospective buyers may get a terminal case of “buyers’ jitters” and back out of the transaction or their loan application may be declined. They may have a home to sell and a limited amount of time in which to sell it. As the contract buyers, they have a strong legal interest in the house, but if their purchase falls through, you have a chance to get the house that you love – you just can’t count on it! Working with a professional Realtor can help ease your concerns, provide you with any information you need, and answer any questions you may have.

The Lukas Matheson Team is comprised of five Realtors and one full time assistant. Our focus when marketing your home is presentation, both online and in print. It is important to us that each and every listing is displayed as well as it possibly can. From professional photography to a comprehensive online marketing strategy, your listing will be well represented to all buyers, no matter how they look for it. Having a team of six allows us to give you full service, seven day a week coverage, that an individual Realtor simply cannot provide. Go to www.lukasmatheson.com to meet our team and get details on how we can help you buy or sell your next home. We look forward to working with you.

“Working for You . . . Beyond the Sale’’

HomeLife Glenayre Realty Chilliwack Ltd.

You have only been looking for a few weeks and have found a house that looks perfect? You want to buy it, but you are reluctant to make an offer without having looked some more. Whether you are in a buyer’s or seller’s market, the best homes usually get snapped up quickly. When you find a great home that you like, you may not have much time to think it over. But it is difficult to make such an enormous purchasing decision without at least “sleeping on it”. If you hesitate, you could lose the house to another buyer. If you go rushing forward, you may spend some time nursing a case of “Buyer’s Remorse”. For example, you decide you really want to buy this perfect house, your Realtor presents your offer to the sellers, and they accept it. You feel great – until you wake up the next morning, covered with a rash and asking yourself, “What on earth have I just done?” If you find yourself in this situation, there are two important things to remember. First, your rash accompanies this very common condition, “Buyers’ Remorse”. Almost everyone who buys a house experiences this feeling, with varying degrees of intensity, sometime between the meeting of the minds and the closing table. And second, you should know that this condition is almost always temporary. You should also know that buyers and sellers are both susceptible to different forms of “temporary insanity” –

Through the years I have had many friends buy and sell their properties. I am almost to the point of annoyingness when I brag about Tamra and how great she is. She has helped us buy and sell a number of times now; this time was in a rocky market. She knows her stuff; she did her research, priced us right, gave us tools and suggestions.We sold for more than we could have dreamed. She kept us calm, organized, and answered all of our questions and concerns. She is one of the most down to earth people we know. She has a get it done attitude and is always super pleasant and easy to deal with. She is up to date with all the best marketing tools and it feels like she will genuinely do whatever it takes to get your house sold or find you another perfect house. If you want a super motivated, genuine, down to earth realtor,Tamra is your woman!

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Chiefs D leaky in weekend losses Eric J. Welsh, The Progress It’s not often a coach leaves a goaltender in net for seven goals. There’s usually an attempt made to preserve the netminder’s confidence and get his head right for the next game. And yet, at the end of Sunday night’s 8-5 loss to the visiting Alberni Valley Bulldogs, Lyndon Stanwood was still between the pipes. From start to finish. Fifty nine minutes and 48 seconds. Seven goals against on 37 shots. One frustrated head coach. “Well, basically I’m tired of rotating them,” said Chiefs coach Harvey Smyl bluntly. It’s not fair to pin all the blame for Chilliwack’s woes on the goaltending of Stanwood and Josh Halpenny. But 20 games into the season, the numbers aren’t good. Stanwood, the veteran, sports a 4.14 goalsagainst average and .900 save percentage. Halpenny, the 18 year old, has a 4.20 GAA and .897 SP. The Chiefs gave up 18 goals while losing their last three games — 7-2 Friday vs Merritt, 3-2 Saturday vs Merritt and then the Bulldog debacle. “I saw some major defensive miscues that left our goalies high and dry, and you can’t just say it was an off night,” Smyl said, directing some blame at the D. “They’re still learning defensive play, but at this time of year, some of the mistakes we’re making are mistakes that shouldn’t be happening. I don’t know if they’re nervous or thinking too much. Maybe not thinking

enough, but they’re not playing the way they should be.” Smyl has made a couple moves trying to address the defence, reacquiring Shay Laurent from the Coquitlam Express and signing 19 year old Quentin McShane. He believes the players are in place. The execution is not. “The turnovers and overall defensive play is something we can control, and we certainly need to be better in those areas,” the coach noted. Here’s what’s most frustrating. Last weekend, as they won three straight games, things seemed

to be turning around. score five goals today, The goalies and D were and two weeks ago no better and the forwards one thought we could put some pucks in the score one.” If there was anything net.

goals Sunday and was easily the most dangerous Chief. “Kudos to him because he probably shouldn’t have been playing,” Smyl said. “He didn’t play Saturday night because of an upper body injury, but he’s seen other guys get banged up, and he wanted back in the lineup.” Plevy and linemates Zach Diamantoni and Blake Gober have slowly meshed into a pretty good first line. If the Chiefs could ever keep pucks out of their own net, these three might help them outscore some opponents. “I thought that line had some great chemistry, that Gober made

some great plays along the wall,” Smyl said. “Zach handled the puck well and had great vision, and Austin had great finish. They’ve been coming around.” Another bright spot is the improving play of Jake Hand. The big fella had his third goal of the season Sunday, and is starting to look like the dangerous player that he was touted to be. “He has played well the last four or five games for us where he’s been the big bull, the power forward type,” Smyl said. “He’s got the hands. He carries it and I think it’s just a matter of time before he starts to contribute

more offensively.” Hand’s Chiefs have a home and home vs Surrey this weekend, Friday in Surrey and Saturday in Chilliwack. Get the schedule at chilliwackchiefs.net. ● The BCHL has just two teams in the most recent Canadian Junior Hockey League rankings. Released Monday, the list finds the Powell River Kings (14-3-0-1) holding down the fifth spot, down three from last week. The Penticton Vees (11-4-1-1) fell four spots from No. 14 to 18 and the Langley Rivermen (13-5-1-1) earned an honourable mention.

UFV brings home bronze

The University of the Fraser Valley men’s soccer team downed the University of Victoria Vikes 2-1 Sunday to take bronze at the Canada West playoff tournament. The game was played at David Sidoo Field, on the campus of the University of British Columbia. The Cascades struggled through the first half, out-shot 10-3 by the Vikes. Abbotsford native Mark Village made five stops, but one got by him in the 33rd minute. Terrace native Cam Hundal stole the ball at midfield, beat

several UFV defenders and fired the ball past Village from 10 yards out. Cascade coach Alan Errington shuffled the lineup to start the second half, and his changes sparked the squad. UFV pressed forward, keeping Vikes keeper Elliot Mitrou busy. Chilliwack’s Ethan Claibourne-Collins was a force in the midfield, alongside Abbotsford native Justin Sekhon. One of Errington’s halftime subs, Langley native Josh Brown, set up the first UFV goal. The forward flew down the wing in the 72nd minute, firing the ball into the box where Sekhon headed it home. With 10 minutes to go, Brown set up Kamloops kid Ryan Liddiard to the left of the Victoria net. Liddiard beat Mitrou to the short side, and UFV killed the clock to get the win. The Cascades

claimed their first ever post-season medal after finishing the season (regular and post) with an all-time best mark of 8-8-1. They beat the Alberta Golden Bears 1-0 in a quarter-final game Thursday, and lost 2-0 to UBC Friday. “I am very proud of our squad,” Errington said. “Today they showed up and kept working for 90 minutes. This is a very important day in our program’s growth.” See ufvcascades.ca

Top three for juniors used to calculate the team result. “The conditions were horrible — cold and windy with a steady downpour,” said coach Allison Fitzsimmons. “They are very tough athletes, all of them. And this is an outstanding result.” The senior girls squad also made the trip. They were fifth at Fraser Valleys, and finished 19th out of 26 teams at provincials. Grade 11 student Caitlin Leblanc was the fastest Sardis student, finishing 67th in a field of 232 runners. Her time in the 4.3km race was 18:32. Senior Michaela England was 82nd overall at 19:00. Kiana Olafson (Grade 10) was next, finishing 118th overall at 19:44. Bekky Clemons (Grade 11) finished 195th at 21:23. K a t h a r i n e Vanderveen (Grade 12) finished 202nd, Caitlyn Geary (Grade 12) finished 204th and Morgan Bahnman (Grade 12) finished 220nd.

Two Sardis secondary school crosscountry teams turned in exceptional performances at last week’s provincials. The season-ending race was held Saturday at Aldergrove Lake Park. Fresh off a second place showing at the Fraser Valley Championships, the junior boys squad went into provincials gunning for a top five finish. By day’s end, they’d exceeded expectations by finishing third in a field of 29 teams. Tanner Geary led the crew, finishing 20th out of 247 runners. Geary covered 4.3 kilometres in 16:04. Samir Rehmtulla was close behind, finishing 28th overall with a time of 16:22. Logan Clegg placed 48th with a time of 16:45. Kristien Biela placed 60th with a time of 16:57 and Keegan Lightle was 117th at 17:51. The times of the top four Sardis runners (Gear y, Rehmtulla, Clegg and Biela) were

Al Tuchscherer has coached Aieisha Luyken, Nicole Wierks, Courtney Bartel, Sam Kurath and Tessa Hart since 2009, and at this point, he’s pretty sure there’s nothing he could do that would surprise them. That wasn’t always the case. During the players’ sophomore season at the University of the Fraser Valley, the team

came into the gym for a Saturday morning shoot-around, fresh off an extremely disappointing loss the night before. Tuchscherer was already there, wordlessly throwing basketballs against the wall. He kept at it as his players started to wonder if he’d lost his marbles, then suddenly produced an egg from his pocket and splattered it against the wall. Players’ jaws hit the floor.

“It was pretty epic,” Luyken said with a chuckle, her eyes as wide retelling the story as they must have been when Tuchscherer smashed the egg three years earlier. “He was like, ‘Now what do you want to be, the ball that bounces back, or the egg?’ And he walked away.” The Cascades, properly focused, were victorious that evening – just one of many time-capsule moments involving the aforementioned five players that Tuchscherer finds himself mulling over more than usual these days. Tuchscherer calls the Luyken/Wierks/ Bar tel/Kurath/Har t quintet a “programsaving” recruiting class, and it’s not hard to see why. In 2008-09, the season before they arrived on campus, UFV posted a 4-19 record. The following season, the freshman core finished last in Canada West at 2-16. But it’s been an upward trajector y since then, and in 2012-13 Tuchscherer’s charges staged a breakthrough. They were never ranked lower than No. 4 in the nation and even held the No. 1 spot for two weeks, won the Pacific Division title, and earned their first berth to the CIS national championship tourney. This season represents the fifth and final year of eligibility for Luyken, Wierks, Bartel and Kurath – Hart redshirted a season while recovering from a knee injury, so she’s technically a fourth-year player – and they’re determined to cement their legacy with a legit run at the national title. They’re ranked No. 4 to open the season. “We’ve got to make sure we’re playing with that desperation that we only have one year left and we’re giving it all we’ve got,” Luyken said. “Not just for our team this year, but for future teams and leaving a spark and an energy to keep building on what we’ve built.” The Cascades dropped both of their games at nationals last season, and Luyken said it was “very upsetting” to find themselves watching from the stands as the Windsor Lancers and the Regina Cougars battled in the gold medal game.

“But it was the greatest learning moment,” she added. “It’s about the hunger. It’s not something coaches can teach – you’re seeing how passionate those girls are and how bad they want it. That’s the difference between getting to nationals and getting to that final game.” The relationship that Tuchscherer has with his veteran fivesome is less like a boss-employee dynamic at this point, and more like family. They’re savvy to all his motivational ploys, even the ones that don’t involve eggs. “They’ll see me getting on some of the younger kids at practice, and they’ll be in the background smiling or winking,” he said with a chuckle. “When I’m getting uptight, they know how to make me laugh – it’s a pretty neat relationship. “I’ve really gone into this season just wanting to enjoy coaching them for one more year. I don’t want to miss out on that. We have some pretty special girls playing for us right now.” ● The UFV women opened the Canada West regular season with a weekend sweep of Lethbridge and the Calgary Dinos. Both games were played at the Envision Athletic Centre in Abbotsford. The Cascades bombed the Lethbridge Pronghorns 70-32 on Friday, outscoring the visitors 38-9 in a dominant second half. The Cascades finished the evening with 12 steals, forcing 29 Lethbridge turnovers. The women had an equally dominant effort Saturday, downing the Dinos 60-36. They recorded 15 steals and forced 24 turnovers, holding the Dinos scoreless for the first four plus minutes of the game. Chilliwack’s Sarah Wierks collected 15 points and 13 rebounds to be named UFV’s player of the game “Not our prettiest game but we are starting to establish some defensive habits that will help us down the road. Good in stretches for sure,” said UFV head coach Al Tuchscherer. “Anytime you can defeat two prairie division schools in a weekend it’s a positive thing. Some things to build on as we prepare for Victoria next weekend.”

Grizzlies roll into AA playoffs

The GW Graham Grizzlies host the Hugh Boyd Trojans in a playoff game Thursday afternoon, with head coach Laurie Smith hoping it is the first step on the path towards a provincial banner. Smith’s junior varsity crew wrapped up the regular season last week, falling 35-6 on the road in Abbotsford. They finished the regular season 5-2, good for third place in the east division standings. The teams ahead of them, Abbotsford (7-0) and Lord Tweedsmuir, moved up to the AAA playoff bracket, and the Grizzlies were relegated to AA. “We’re in the playoffs either way, but I’m not sure I’m a big fan

of that system,” Smith said. “Last year with the Grade 8s, it was great to get bumped up to AAA and beat some big boys on our way to the provincial final.” At the same time, if collecting provincial banners is a goal, the Grizzlies face much better odds staying in their weight class. With 900 students in Grades 7-12, GWG is tailor-made for the AA level. “It was tough for our Grade 8s to lose in the AAA final, and then see a team (HD Stafford) that we beat quite handily in the regular season win the AA provincial banner,” Smith acknowledged. That’s not to say the AA bracket will be a cake-walk. A win over the 2-3 Trojans would set GWG up in a semi-final against one of South Kamloops or Prince George. GWG would hit the road in either scenario. If PG was the opponent, they’d be taking on a team that went 8-0 in the regular season, with 359 points for and eight

against. The lop-sided loss to Abbotsford shouldn’t carry too much weight when judging GWG’s playoff readiness. Win or lose, they were going to be in the playoffs, and they faced Abbotsford without their top player. QB Jordan Breuker was sidelined by a dislocated finger. Had it been a door-die game, he probably would have been in there. “He will be back playing on Thursday,” Smith confirmed. “He wanted to play against Abbotsford, and we said no.” His presence will help a GWG offence that is depleted at running back. Billy Hansen isn’t expected to play, nor is Tristan Davis. Emerson Smith and Tyler Sprott will split the tailback duties, and Breuker will probably get a ton of carries on QB keepers. “Jordan can do it all, as long as he doesn’t break something,” Smith chuckled.

The best news of all may be that the Trojans don’t have a Chase Claypool in their lineup. The Abby football phenom was the difference maker in last week’s game. “We expect him to be good and last week he was great,” Smith said. “The kid runs a 4.5 40, and he’s just phenomenal. Whatever we did didn’t matter. On one of his four TDs, he caught the ball in triple coverage and just sauntered into the endzone.” Kickof f for Thursday’s playof f game is 4:30 p.m. at Exhibition Stadium. ● The senior squad ended their season with a win, dumping the Samuel Robertson Titans 27-13 Friday. Quar terback Brandon McCormick led the way. The first year pivot completed 12 of 19 pass attempts for 227 yards and two touchdowns. He ran for another. “I hope he keeps playing because he’s got a level of poise that’s hard to teach,” Smith said of his QB, who was a soccer player prior to this year. “He is so relaxed back there and he can throw darts.” Wideout Jake Creasey had a great game, catching four passes for 106 yards and a major. He added another 132 yards on four punt returns. The Titans did a good job bottling up GWG’s top running back, Brett Westad. But Treyvon Walsh was effective out of the backfield, picking up close to 100 yards. The Grizzlies finished their first senior season 2-5. They will not be in the playoffs. “I remember saying a couple weeks ago, after they were eliminated from playoff contention, that I hope they don’t mail it in,” Smith said. “Kudos that they didn’t. They were out-gunned in most of their games against bigger, stronger and tougher teams. But they showed a ton of heart.” Get more GWG football info online at grahamfootball.ca and keep checking the Progress for playoff updates.

NEWPORT, Keith C. “Barney” May 8, 1927 - Oct 15, 2013 Barney Newport passed away at CGH on Tuesday, October 15th after a brief illness. He was born in Eston, Saskatchewan, the middle child of 5 children. Joining the merchant navy at the age of 15, he travelled the southeastern hemisphere during WWII. He returned to Vancouver after the war, met and married Valerie Booth in 1947. They had 3 children, Lynn, Keith and Richard who died shortly after his birth. Prior to joining the Canadian Armed Forces in 1955, Barney trained and worked as a psychiatric nurse at Riverview Psychiatric Hospital in New Westminster, BC. He spent the majority of his 25 year career as a para rescue medic posted to Greenwood, NS, Marville, France, Comox, BC and Lahr, Germany. His last post was Chilliwack, where he retired. He had over 100 parachute jumps, went on alpine rescue and scuba rescue exercises and served as the medic on the 160 km Nijmegen, Holland march three times although he rode a bicycle. He always maintained he was a fly boy, not infantry. Barney’s main interest was sports. He would have watched a tiddlywink championship if he could not find any other sport program on TV. He played hockey with the Old Timers league until he was 70 years old. He continued to be a loyal fan of his son’s and grandsons’ sports participations. He is predeceased by his son Richard in 1959, wife, Val in 2008, his son Keith in 2013, and his sister, Joan and brother Glenn. He leaves behind his daughter, Lynn, daughter-in-law, Corry, Granddaughter, Kimberley (Sean), grandsons, Christopher (Kara) and Brandon and 4 great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 280 in Vedder Crossing, where he was a founding member. He is now at peace and among those he wished to be with.
