Crime free season at Othello Tunnels

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope Crime Prevention Society is celebrating an important milestone this year. For the first time in a decade, there were no police files at Othello Tunnels. The non-profit group has been regularly canvassing the parking lot area for years in an effort to curb vehicle break-ins and thefts. The area has been known as a hotspot for crime in the past, with total police files peaking at 13

in 2009, but targeted volunteer efforts have helped reduce the number of incidents. “This is a monstrous achievement. We’re just so pleased,” said volunteer Geoff Hodgkinson, crediting not only the volunteer patrols but a greater awareness among people about the importance of locking valuables away. This year, Hope Crime Prevention Society volunteers logged a total of 567 hours patrolling Othello Tunnels. Members handed out

educational pamphlets to tourists and checked vehicles for valuables on display. Hodgkinson said 4,928 vehicles were audited this summer. RCMP Staff Sgt. Suki Manj said Hope Crime Prevention Society volunteers are an asset to both the community and local police force. “It just shows that volunteerism, if properly deployed, can have a dramatic effect in our community. I know we couldn’t do our job as well as we do without their support,” he added.

“There’s no way we could have spent that time and energy as a police force up in that area to make people feel safe and allow people to enjoy what we have here without being targeted and vandalized. Word spreads when people know they can stop in our community and there’s people watching out for them.” Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Hope Crime Prevention Society at or 604-869-5900.

arrived at the parking lot, the lone hiker was nowhere to be seen and was reported missing to RCMP. Hope SAR, with mutual aid from Chilliwack SAR, searched the trail during the night to try and determine where the hiker could have gone astray. After finding nothing, the search management team called in mutual aid from other teams to expand the search area. While transporting search teams by helicopter to the top of Needle Peak to start the morning assignments, the hiker was spotted a short distance off the trail and was returned to command. It was determined that he decided to try and follow the ski trails back to the parking lot instead of following the main trail.

A random monthly

man was spotted driving on Skagit Valley Forest Service Road by two Hope SAR members. The hunter was later reunited with his family at the SAR building in downtown Hope. That night, the RCMP also called out Hope SAR to search for a 54-year-old man who had been separated from his hiking group and did not return to the rendezvous point. Police met with the search team at the start of the Needle Peak Trail on Highway 5 to gather information on what happened to the hiker. After reaching the top at Flatiron Summit, a group of nine hikers started descending the trail back to the Needle Peak parking lot. The 54-year-old hiker had decided to go out ahead of the group and meet them at bottom. When eight of the hikers

Hope Search and Rescue was busy on the weekend searching for two missing men. A SAR team was called out Saturday morning by the RCMP to help locate a 75-year-old man who had been reported missing by family the night before. After searching in the Merritt area for possible sightings, the RCMP determined the man might be in the Hope area. Being a retired conservation officer from the Hope and Chilliwack area, the man was known to hunt in this area. Two of his friends, as well conservation officers, helped the SAR team and RCMP determine where the man usually hunted. The search was concentrated around the Ladner Creek area and in the Skagit Valley. Shortly into the search, the

Victim’s body found on forest service road north of Hope Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

A Chilliwack man has been convicted of manslaughter in connection with the death of 64-year-old Robert-Jan Planje, whose body was found on a steep slope below a forest service road near American Creek north of Hope almost three years ago. Steven Kenneth Frederickson was arrested by Chilliwack RCMP after trying to pawn a ring that had belonged to the deceased. He was initially charged with second-degree murder, however was convicted of the lessor charge of manslaughter last month due to insufficient evidence establishing a murderous intent. In his reasons for judgement, Justice W.G. Grist stated that while evidence establishes the accused assaulted Planje, caused defensive injuries, and delivered blows to his head, there was reasonable doubt whether Frederickson acted with murderous intent when he took the clothing and abandoned Planje’s body, if in fact Planje was still alive. “The fact that the time of death is unknown, the possibility that if Mr. Planje was insensible but alive, the accused nonetheless believed that the unconscious victim was dead when he dumped

the body, and the lack of evidence indicating that the actions of the accused in fact accelerated death contribute to this doubt,” he said. The autopsy of Planje’s body indicated he had died “some considerable time” before his body was found as a result of bleeding inside his skull, consistent with “two to three incidents of blunt force trauma sustained by his head hitting or being hit by a solid object.” Planje’s body had sustained substantial bruising, many of which were consistent with defensive injuries. Planje had been missing since the morning of Dec. 13, 2010 when RCMP were called to his home in the Rainbow Trailer Park to check on his wellbeing. When police attended they found no one at the residence, however there were signs of “suspicious activity.” The residence was secured and a search for Planje began. Planje was last seen alive that morning by a neighbour in the presence of Frederickson through a window in her mobile home. Approximately two hours later, Frederickson was observed dragging a heavy object out of the mobile home to the driveway near the front of the stairs to the mobile home, where

Planje’s car was parked. Frederickson subsequently left the premises driving Planje’s car. When police entered the mobile home following Frederickson’s arrest, the premises were in a state of disarray and blood stains were found through much of the trailer. The blood stains were particularly prevalent in Planje’s bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Planje had taken Frederickson in as a tenant in the mobile home about six weeks prior to his disappearance. On Dec. 12, 2010 police officers were dispatched to the mobile home as a result of a

complaint phoned in by the deceased. The police officers tried unsuccessfully to settle a dispute between the two and subsequently arrested Frederickson, who they judged to be the more aggressive individual, in an attempt to prevent a further altercation. Later that day, Planje returned to the mobile home from a friend’s residence and gave Frederickson an eviction notice. Crown said the dispute between the two again became heated and culminated in Frederickson attacking Planje in his bedroom and ensuite. Crown fur-

ther argued that Frederickson caused the fatal blows to Planje’s head, following which he dragged Planje to his car and drove to the forestry service road north of Hope, took his clothes, and caused his body to fall to where it was found 17 days later. The defence admitted that Frederickson dragged Planje’s body from the trailer and transported it to forestry road, however stated that Planje must have sustained the injury by accident, perhaps falling and hitting his head. Frederickson also denied assaulting Planje in this mobile home.

Safety improvements slated for Highway 1 Glen Ogren, president of Hope & District Chamber of Commerce, said the improvements are a year in the making. Last year before attending the premiers luncheon through the BC Chamber of Commerce, the board asked members what concerns they had to bring forward to ministers that would be present at the meeting. Ogren said one of the concerns raised was for drivers on Highway 1 from the Annis Road exit up through Hope. Adams Freight Forwarding suggested that better lighting be used to help guide motorists entering the mountain phase of one of B.C.’s main highways. The issue was also brought up at the end of the all-candidates meeting during the last provincial election, specifically asking about what could be done for that corner. While Throness was attending a Hope & District Chamber of Commerce meeting in July, concerns over the Herrling Is-

land curve were raised again. After looking into it, Throness informed Ogren that the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure wasn’t going to do a lot at that time. However, a few weeks later following a rash of accidents along that stretch of highway, the ministry started working on a plan to make motorists more aware of the corner. “If you own a business or have business to do in a neighbouring town, or if goods need to be delivered to Hope, there needs to be an expectation you can drive safely to and from your destination,” said Ogren. “An average of 20,000 motorists drive along that stretch of highway each day, and to ensure both safe travel and ability for both business and residents to engage in trade between communities, the Chamber welcomes any safety upgrades to this section of highway.”

A section of Highway 1 near Herrling Island will be receiving several safety enhancements before the end of December. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is spending $150,000 to install electronic signage and curve delineation on Highway 1 westbound, just west of the Jones Hill underpass. “Improvements like these make the road safer for all users and helps keep traffic flowing smoothly,” said ChilliwackHope MLA Laurie Throness. All warning signs will be upgraded to a larger and more visible format. Three additional chevron signs with LED illumination will be placed on the curve, as well as a new overhead warning sign with flashing amber lights at the top of the hill. Existing wide pavement markings will also be replaced with a new and improved pattern.

Scandal taints politics It wasn’t a particularly good week for politicians in Canada. What began with the summary expulsion of three senators over their alleged misuse of taxpayer money, ended with a drunken rant from the admitted cracksmoking mayor of Canada’s largest city. The Senate scandal crawled to an uninspired end last Tuesday after dominating headlines for weeks. All but one Conservative senator voted to expel the three, but not before enough muck had been thrown to spatter both the upper and lower house. Aside from the allegation of spending impropriety and outright fraud, there were counter claims that the office of the Prime Minister knew more than it was saying. Adding to the debate were accusations the Conservatives were running roughshod over judicial process by expelling the senators before an official investigation into their conduct was complete. Stephen Harper, who evidently believes that what the prime minister giveth can be taken away, was unrepentant in his handling of the mess. At the Conservative annual convention in Calgary he rejected any and all criticism. Not all Canadians were as confident in his rectitude. But just as Tory senators swung the axe (taking out some of the sting by allowing the ousted trio to keep their medical benefits), the story was bumped from the front page. It was replaced by the train wreck that is Rob Ford. After months of denying the existence of a video purporting to show the Toronto mayor smoking crack, the video emerged. The initial angry denials were soon replaced by an admission and an apology – lots of apologies. But no sooner had the late-night talk show hosts warmed up their monologues, another video emerged, this one showing Ford in an apparent drunken rage. More apologies. Coincidently, Ford’s travails came as Montrealers were electing a new mayor to replace the previous two who left under a cloud of corruption allegations. All this, of course, has little impact on Hope, except to fill the evening newscasts. But it does colour (or confirm) our perception of politics and public life. And that is unfortunate. The vast majority of people in public office are honourable and dedicated to the well being of their constituents. But like the plane that lands safely, the politicians and public servants who do their job well, never make the headlines. - Black Press

Untangling oil pipeline politics B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher Reaction was swift and scattered after the “framework agreement” on new oil pipelines announced last week by B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford. First, here’s what it doesn’t mean. “B.C. blinked,” according to one Toronto commentator, based on the popular notion that B.C. gave up its claim to a share of Alberta’s resource royalties from heavy oil. Clark never made such a claim, so it would be difficult to give it up. Her often-repeated condition of a “fair share” of revenues from any new oil pipelines is purposely vague, but after repeated protests

from Alberta, Clark clarified as far back as last June that provincial royalties are not on the table. There is no constitutional way to make such a demand, a point Redford has made several times. NDP leader Adrian Dix and the usual chorus of professional protesters claimed that Clark flipflopped, opposing the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal before the election and then embracing it once she was re-elected. This is also inaccurate. Clark’s five conditions were set out before the May election, demanding approval by a federal environmental review, “world-leading” spill prevention and response capability on land and at sea, meeting legal requirements to consult and share benefits with aboriginal communities, and the undefined “fair share” for B.C. Clark said numerous times dur-

ing the campaign that the conditions have not been met, and made pessimistic noises about Northern Gateway, but she very carefully did not campaign against it. The B.C. Liberal platform also endorsed a Kitimat-area oil refinery proposed by this newspaper’s owner, and Clark repeatedly referred to that sort of industrial expansion as one of the potential “fair share” components for B.C. The B.C. Liberal government made its opposition to Northern Gateway “as currently proposed” official on May 31, two weeks after the election, in its final submission to the federal review panel. If Clark had wanted to jump on the antipipeline bandwagon for political gain, that move could have been made earlier. NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said the B.C. government has taken the position


that more oil will reach the West Coast, by rail if not by pipeline. I’m not sure if or when that claim was made, but it’s true that rail shipments are already permitted. Here’s what Redford and Clark agreed on. Redford accepts B.C.’s five conditions, provincial royalties excluded, and Clark endorsed Redford’s proposed “Canadian Energy Strategy,” which B.C. rejected last year. A draft of the strategy released last summer contains no specifics on how it would facilitate a pipeline project from Alberta to B.C. It talks about developing Canada’s energy reserves and at the same time somehow reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promises a final version next spring. Oh, and Quebec refuses to participate. Ottawa has sole jurisdiction over inter-provincial projects such as Northern Gateway and the pro-

posal by Kinder Morgan Canada to expand the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby and refineries in Washington. If there is to be some extra revenue for B.C. from oil traffic, it could theoretically take the form of a toll on pipelines. Redford pointed out the problem with that idea in her speech to an energy forum in Vancouver last week. She noted that 42 per cent of B.C. natural gas is piped through Alberta to markets. If B.C. can toll Alberta oil, the same could be done with B.C. gas. None of B.C.’s five conditions has yet been met.

Search and rescue efforts appreciated My father who is a retired conservation officer of the Hope and Chilliwack area and needed some help over the weekend. He left for hunting up to the Skagit. Usually he comes home by 6:30 p.m., but on Friday night at 9:30 p.m. we decided to call the police as he had not returned home.

Constable Davidson was in contact with us all night, letting us know everything, getting details, and assuring all of us that they are out searching. Search and rescue went out, along with Paul Fadden and the rest of the conservation officers and Hope police, to search for him in the morn-

Infrastructure projects funded by taxpayers I have been reading with interest MP Mark Strahl’s letter (Federal Government infrastructure investments in Hope, Nov. 7). He names several of these “investments.” First, $3.3-million for the replacement of the Kawkawa Lake Road Bridge. Second, $2.3-million for the replacement of the Cedar Creek Bridge. (Just how much of the traffic over this bridge is Hope traffic? Five per cent?) He mentions the Gas Tax Fund money for the East Kawkawa Lake water system. Now who do you suppose supplies this money?

I am a father to two children, a son and daughter aged 21 and 23. In todays challenging world, I have seen their struggles about what to do in life, and consider their deep concerns about it all. As a crew leader with the Skills Link Youth Program in Hope, I try to help local youth through a Services Canada funded project. When local parents hear about it, they are thrilled. It is my belief that such a program is badly needed, and helps youth find work and stay right here at home in Hope. When local youth hear from current participants, the reactions are always, “That is so cool, I wish I could go in that.” We need this program in Hope ongoing. These youth learn critical transferable skills for the world of employment. Our current group age ranges from 17 to 23.  Free Rein is the ideal environment, professional in every way, and breaking rock on the Mt. Hope Lookout

mission. IntegrityBC argues Pimm crossed a clear line requiring cabinet ministers not interfere with the independence of judges or quasi-judicial commissions like the ALC when he urged the commission over the spring and summer to reverse its decision against allowing a rodeo grounds and campground as a non-farm use on a parcel of Fort St. John farmland in the Agricultural Land Reserve. “When a minister crosses that line, the minister resigns,” IntegrityBC executive director Dermod Travis said. “He didn’t cross it just once. He crossed it a multitude of times. Pimm first wrote to the ALC on the issue May 17 as an MLA elect – two days after the provincial election –  to express “concern” with the initial decision. Pimm’s staffers contacted the ALC once more in June and twice on July 25, when his ministerial assistant said Pimm wanted to know the outcome of the ALC’s reconsideration. That led the ALC to issue a July 26 policy statement scolding Pimm’s representations as “not appropriate” lest it lead to an impression of the commission being politically influenced. The ALC also said in

IntegrityBC is calling on B.C. Agriculture Minister Pat Pimm must resign from cabinet for directly lobbying the Agricultural Land Commission.

its final Aug. 19 decision rejecting the rodeo use that any MLA who thinks a decision before the ALC is too significant to leave as an independent decision can try to persuade cabinet to take that file out of the commission’s hands. It said the ALC exists as an independent entity to avoid basing farmland decisions on “the politically expedient, the crisis of the day or shortterm profit that sacrifice agricultural land forever. “The Commission exists precisely to prevent the British Columbia public waking up one day and asking ‘what happened to our agricultural land.’” Pimm told CKNW

Monday he has stopped making direct interventions in files with the ALC, but feels he did nothing wrong and was merely acting in his advocacy role as an MLA on an issue of local concern. Travis said he clearly continued to act on the file after becoming minister in June. Earlier this year, federal Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan resigned his post for inappropriately writing a letter in 2011 on behalf of a constituent regarding a case coming before the federal tax court. Travis said Duncan quit quickly and honourably and Premier Christy Clark must in-

sist Pimm do the same. “If you have ministers running around thinking that it is okay to lobby judges, then we’re going to have a serious problem maintaining the separation of the two institutions.” Travis said Pimm’s interference with the ALC also taints the government’s leaked plans to consider major changes to the commission, including potentially bringing it under the direct control of the agriculture ministry. “Any changes that they consider will be looked at as Mr. Pimm trying to get back at the Agricultural Land Commission for rapping him on the knuckles,” Travis said. “The entire process is now suspect. The government has no other option at this point but to pull it off the table.” Bill Bennett, the minister in charge of the government’s core review, last week insisted the province isn’t considering dismantling the ALC or bringing it within government. The leaked cabinet documents also indicated the province might separate the ALR into two zones to potentially offer looser treatment of farmland in the north and Interior, where Bennett says large amounts of unfarmable land is locked in the ALR.

Hope resident wins rally race gold Barry Stewart Hope Standard

His name was entered into the Canadian Autosport Hall of Fame in 2004… which should mean that Hope resident Taisto Heinonen is long past his glory days behind the wheel of a rally car. But when the 73-year-old got an invitation to suit up for the Rocky Mountain Rally held in Invermere in early November, the competitive juices started flowing again. This was no basic club rally — but a staged race for the Canadian and North American championship rally series. Serious stuff, with television coverage by TSN. One problem: Heinonen didn’t have any wheels. “For this race, you need a car with a roll cage, five-point harnesses, and removable steering wheel, etcetera,” said Heinonen on Tuesday. “I don’t have a car like that anymore.” In the past few years, the native Finlander has been getting back into street rallies — called TSD or “Time, Speed, Distance” rallies — and a woman from Calgary, Leanne Junnila, has been his codriver on a couple of events. Junnila had some key connections for someone else’s car. “Leanne’s friend knew Kevin Lee and his car, and he encouraged Kevin to let us use it,” said Heinonen. “These people are all members of the rally club in Calgary, which is big and active.” Lee’s ride was a 1986 Toyota Corolla GT. “Kevin said it was running about 140 horsepower,” said Heinonen. “A standard Corolla would be about 100 hp. “The suspensions have to be stiffer, for rallying — and the inside is stripped down and there are extra lights for night driving. “Rally cars have to be street legal because we run on public roads (transit sections) between the staged events,” he noted. “As far as speed goes, this car didn’t have a speedometer, but top speeds were about 140-150 km/h. Remember these were really rough logging roads.” During the races, the roads were blocked off and radio-controlled, said Heinonen.


Hope resident and rally car racer Taisto Heinonen won gold at the Rocky Mountain Rally in Invermere in early November.

In preparation for the staged events, teams are allowed to drive the course in a regular street car, on the day prior to the race. Speeds can be more than 60 km/h. “One route was 22 kilometres

up a mountain, then back down again,” said Heinonen’s wife Phyllis, who went along to cheer on the team. “You make notes for each turn,” explained Taisto. “Leanne was in the seat beside me and I would

tell her what to write down. These are called pace notes. “I might say ‘hair-pin left,’ or ‘fast right’ or ‘stay left, rock on right.’ “Leanne is one of the best codrivers around. She only does

that, she doesn’t drive, and I don’t co-drive. It’s teamwork,” said Heinonen.   “In the rally, the co-driver is reading out the notes through the intercom to the driver, talking all the time.  It’s very important to be correct all the time because the driver has to totally trust the codriver, to be able to drive maximum speed all the time.  “The smallest error could have terrible results.” There are certainly elements of speed and danger but rallies have a different flavour than road races, said Phyllis. “Cars are released one minute apart,” she said, “so you’re racing the clock, not the other cars. There’s a great feeling of camaraderie and community.” Before the first race day, Nov. 1, Heinonen said he had a few factors gnawing at his confidence. “This was my first pro rally in thirty-one years, so I was very nervous! I didn’t know how it would go and how I would do. The car was new to me and not very powerful. It was a challenge to drive something I had not prepared myself, and only sat in for the first time the night before the race. “I told myself that I just wanted to finish the rally and not have big expectations about the results.  The further into the rally I got, though, the more comfortable I was. I got used to the car and started going faster.” Black ice is often a disaster for motorists — but Heinonen revels in it. “Black ice takes more talent and experience to drive on, so that’s an advantage for me,” he said with a confident grin. After 200 kilometres of racing on rough gravel over the two days, Heinonen and Junnila took the podium in the two-wheeldrive category, beating out 35 other teams.  There was no prize money for the win, though there was plenty of praise. “Some people said rally driving is like learning to ride a bike – so even older drivers with experience still have the muscle memory to do it,” said Heinonen. “It did seem like that for me.”
