Tad Milmine returned to Hope last week for the second time this year to share his message of acceptance, tolerance and understanding. The RCMP officer addressed students at Hope Secondary School in an effort to empower youth to choose positive, individual change. “What I always hope for is the fact that after the presentation, by simply hearing real stories, they recognize things such as their words and actions have very serious consequences on others and that ultimately they’re the masters of their own domain,” said Milmine. “They’re the ones that have control to make decisions and choices that are ultimately going to lead to their future. They can be a leader and choose to be positive, and they can watch out for others who are having challenges in school. Milmine encourages students to stand up and be the voice for victims of bullying who don’t speak up. He points out that there is help for those struggling in silence, including through his website www. bullyingendshere.ca, which can be done in anonymity. Milmine created the website in May 2012 to tell the story of Jamie Hubley, a 15-year-old Ottawa teen who took his own life because he couldn’t take the stress and abuse associated with being bullied because he was a figure skater and later for being openly gay. Hubley’s story reminded Milmine of his own life and the struggles he faced growing up. He made the decision then to do his part to help those being bullied by talking to youth in person and providing support, advice and friendship through his website. Milmine starts each presen-

tation by introducing himself, sharing his dream of being a police officer, and growing up and feeling alone. He openly discusses the challenges of growing up in a broken home full of addictions, being confined to a basement for many years and being bullied through school. “I talk about how I felt being a victim at that stage of my life, how I was just going to hold everything in and get through it on my own,” said Milmine. “As I grew older, when I was at school, I was being bullied because I used to be horrifically introverted and incredibly shy. By the time I was 16, I recog-

nized that I was depressed and I was also suicidal.” Milmine goes through all the stages of his life, which includes running away at the age of 17 and having a chance encounter with a police officer at 32 who encouraged him to join the force. He then introduces the story of Hubley and creates images of what exactly the teen endured during his years of bullying. Milmine also shares how he felt when he heard about the tragedy. “Jamie was bullied because of the fact he was different. Then that’s when I break it to students that I too am openly

gay,” he said. “Then I challenge them. If something inside them has changed negatively for them because I told them that I was gay, it’s not me that changed, it’s them. Even with their own intolerance, they have to take the personal initiative to find out why they have that reaction.” Milmine does presentations on his days off and on his own dime. What started as a simple initiative to help youth, has gained momentum not only in Canada but abroad. Milmine has presentations slated in Scotland and England next spring.

Highway 7 from Mission to Hope was also higher than the rest of the region at 0.68. The data was released Friday by the transportation ministry as part of a new provincial review of rural highway speeds and safety. Several highways on Vancouver Island –  including the Malahat between Victoria and Nanaimo and routes from Victoria to Port Renfrew, Parksville to Tofino, and Duncan to Lake Cowichan –  also had crash rates of around .65 or above. The worst crash rate in B.C. is 2.06 collisions per million kilometres on the Anahim Lake to Bella Coola highway. The crash rate on the Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Merritt is 0.56 compared to 0.40 on Highway 1 through the Fraser Canyon from Hope to Cache Creek. The provincial government is conducting a provincewide consultation and engagement until Jan. 24 to seek input about safety and speed limits on B.C.’s rural highways.

Public input will form an important part of the Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review and will be considered in conjunction with the technical review, which is already underway. Included for consideration in the technical review are new technology, highway design and similar initiatives in other jurisdictions. The ministry will also be seeking input from ICBC, police, the Union of B.C. Municipalities, as well as other key stakeholders. Practical recommendations from this review and a strategy for implementation will be ready in early spring 2014. Residents can get more information on the review and share feedback online at www.gov.bc.ca/safetyandspeedreview/ On Dec. 17, from 7-8 p.m., Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone will host a Twitter town hall to discuss speed limits and other issues affecting highway safety.

MLA backs booze in grocery stores Tom Fletcher Black Press

The MLA in charge of the B.C. government’s liquor policy review is recommending alcohol sales within grocery stores, using the “store within a store” model in place in other provinces. Richmond Steveston MLA John Yap announced three of his recommendations last Thursday, including the idea that a separate staffed area should handle alcohol sales. He also called for no increase to the 731 private store licences that are active now, and no sales in convenience stores other than those already designated as rural agency stores.

Yap’s full report has more than 70 recommendations, but it won’t be released until the new year after cabinet has considered it. Liquor in grocery stores was by far the most popular topic during his public consultation, which is why only those recommendations are being made public now, he said. NDP liquor and gaming critic Shane Simpson said Yap has promoted the popular idea repeatedly, and Thursday’s announcement appears “cobbled together” to distract attention from BC Hydro rate hikes and B.C.’s dismal job creation performance than it is about liquor sales.

“It’s been released with no supporting evidence as to how you do this,” Simpson said. “Who gets these stores? If there’s really a moratorium on new licences, does this mean that somebody who has a 10,000 square foot private store today is going to be told you have to give that up to get 1,000 square feet in a Safeway? I don’t think that’s going to happen.” The Alliance of Beverage Licensees, representing private liquor stores, questioned Yap’s assertion that the change would create jobs and increase con-

venience. “There are very few places around the province you will not find a liquor store already located within 100 metres of a grocery store, and having a separate liquor checkout inside a grocery store will not improve convenience,” said Ian Baillie, executive director of the alliance. The alliance is running a radio ad campaign saying its 10,000 employees’ jobs are at risk, and putting alcohol in grocery stores increases the chance that young people can obtain booze.

Opinion

A6 Hope Standard Thursday, December 5, 2013

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

Public opinion shifting on pipeline projects An opinion poll published recently reveals that public attitudes are shifting on the Northern Gateway pipeline project. While the controversial oil pipeline does not have the support of a majority of British Columbians, support has climbed from 35 to 42 per cent. Perhaps more importantly, those opposed are no longer a majority – they number 47 per cent of those polled, a drop of 14 per cent from a similar poll in February. The balance of people polled are undecided. The sharp drop in opposition likely reflects the shift in opinion that took place in the midst of the provincial election, when NDP leader Adrian Dix changed course and came out against the Kinder Morgan pipeline twinning project, after months of saying he couldn’t take a position because an application hadn’t been filed. At least one NDP MLA who lost his seat blamed that one move for the loss, and there is no doubt that many voters were much more wary of the NDP’s economic development plans after that remark was made. The increase in support is also due to more intensive efforts by Enbridge to portray itself as listening to B.C. residents’ concerns. Nonetheless, it will indeed be a challenge for the pipeline to be built, given that First Nations groups remain bitterly opposed and can hold the project up for years in court. What seems far more likely, with this shift in public opinion, is that Kinder Morgan will be built, and will face significantly less opposition. - Black Press

Greenhouse gas trial balloon leaks B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher Last week I described the inevitable demise of B.C.’s “carbon neutral government” scheme, which continues to take millions from hospitals and schools to fund greenhouse gas reduction projects of questionable value. It’s like the AirCare program, a pollution solution that sounded great at the time. AirCare soon found itself chasing diminishing environmental returns, made redundant by new vehicle technology and the financial need to save fuel. Public sector carbon offsets will suffer the same fate, growing as a political liability as their effectiveness declines. All this is separate from B.C.’s carbon tax and greenhouse gas

reduction program, another environmental trial balloon that is sinking back to Earth. Former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate goals officially remain in place: 33 per cent greenhouse gas reduction by 2020 and a whopping 80 per cent by 2050. If the gas boom proceeds as planned, B.C. domestic emissions will not be down, but up substantially by 2020. New liquefied natural gas export proposals continue to pop up, the latest ones on former industrial sites near Squamish and Campbell River. And with the surge of LNG activity around Kitimat and Prince Rupert already changing the landscape, questions linger about the pollution and greenhouse gas impacts. As she left for the government’s largest ever trade mission to Asia, Premier Christy Clark dismissed a study that estimated the impact

of three LNG plants. That study, done by Kitimat environment group Skeena Wild, assumed “direct drive” technology to chill and compress gas for export. It concluded that three plants would burn two and a half times the amount of natural gas currently used in Metro Vancouver. Clark and Environment Minister Mary Polak relied on the same talking point  to reject the study. The technology of powering LNG is still being negotiated, as producers work towards environmental permits, so the total can’t be calculated yet. BC Hydro is predicting little electricity demand for LNG until after 2020, which suggests the early development will either be direct drive, the industry standard and simplest method, or building one or more gas-fired power plants in northwest B.C. Even if gas usage is only equivalent to one

Standard

Lower Mainland, it’s plain to see greenhouse gas emissions are going up. Clark has repeatedly argued that B.C. LNG should get credit for displacing coal in China and elsewhere.  I asked Polak if the international community would accept B.C.’s assertion that emissions from our LNG production shouldn’t count. “We haven’t said we won’t count them,” Polak replied. “What the premier’s talked about and I’ve talked about is that this whole issue of how one accounts for greenhouse gases in a particular region is one that is constantly evolving. There are regularly changes to the international standards for accounting for these things and reporting them. And certainly the ability for one jurisdiction to impact positively on the GHG emissions of another, we think is appropriately considered in how one

accounts for these things.” Clark visited the Jiangsu LNG import facility in China that could be a key export destination. Globe and Mail China correspondent Nathan Vanderklippe covered the premier’s visit. He reports that the gas being imported at Jiangsu isn’t replacing coal. It’s being used in addition to coal in peak demand periods. Clark also visited Japan, another key customer for LNG. The whole world knows why Japan needs new energy sources. It needs to replace production from its disaster-tainted nuclear facilities. Will B.C. LNG be part of the solution to human-induced climate change? On the evidence so far, the answer is no.

Profit not worth the expense of oil spill It’s obvious Kinder Morgan president Ian Anderson is a bought man. In his article, “Pipeline equals prosperity,” he mentions dollar figures, 18 times, anywhere from $7 million all the way to  $11.3 billion. How many billions of dollars is Kinder Morgan willing to part with due to a major catastrophic oil spill? Nothing, it’s not their responsibility, just get it there and it’s someone else’s problem. Everything Mr. Anderson refers to is money. Not once is there any mention of environmental sustainability, because there isn’t any. It’s a dirty oil pipeline with a limited use and it’s unnecessary and is an everlasting toxic nightmare, not to mention risking

the last pristine ecosystems on the west coast of the Americas. The Gulf of Mexico spill cost $20 billion, and it will never be totally cleaned up. Then he talks about recruiting local and First Nations for the construction phase, even though he knows the First Nations are against oil pipelines. So to try and ply them from their leaders is just another slap in the face. So what are oil pipelines really worth? Do we all want fat bank accounts and an easy street, but live in a contaminated garbage dump, by poison soil, destroyed aquatic life, and the extinction of common sense? Or, do we choose the high road, develop

energy sources that are cleaner, more efficient, and environmentally safer? Our own energy, not someone else’s toxic goo, for minimal economic benefit, and maximum environmental risk. It’s time to put the expansion of oil pipelines to bed. I can understand that Mr. Anderson earns a good salary and protecting that is much more important to him than any oil spill. But, if we don’t stop expanding on delivering oil, then we are going to run out before we convert to alternate sources. The oil is not going to last forever. We need to convert and conserve our oil stocks for future generations, not to mention

the energy produced from Asian imported   oil supports manufacturing done by child and slave labor forces for cheap and unnecessary consumer goods. Of course there’s economic benefit from building a pipeline. There’s economic benefit in any major infrastructure construction. But let’s not waste our money helping to develop someone else’s product, when we could be developing our own energy sources. It’s time to develop our newfound natural gas reserves, our energy, our money, cleaner, safer, and more abundant.  Let’s build gas lines not oil lines. Art Green

Community health Property adversely affected by grow-op care survey launched Re: Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulation and Land Use Planning, District News (Nov. 21) At the Aug. 21 in-camera meeting of council, a resolution was passed to change the zoning bylaw regarding a marijuana grow-op. This issue was declassified, or in other words, made available to the rest of us at the regular meeting of council. Why did it take until Nov. 21 for us to find out that the structure at 61614 Yale Rd. was a grow-op? On Nov. 2 it was already in place and we were not informed that this information was available  until Nov. 21, on the back page of The Hope Standard under “Council Briefs.” I did not see it.

It should have been on the front page - not hidden on the back page. It is my belief that my property will be adversely affected by this operation and that I have not been afforded a democratic opportunity to be heard. I wonder if any of the people on council have ever experienced the stench created when a grow-op ventilates? We still do not know who the principals involved are, or any other details. It would be nice to know the level, if any, of federal or provincial government attention that is paid to legal grow-ops to make sure that they adhere to the law. J.L. DeLair

Park dedication suggested A group of “old-timers” in Hope feel we should honour former councillor and mayor Bud Gardner by naming a popular area for his persistence with government projects that were funded for Hope during his 25 years as mayor preceded with years as councillor in Hope. He was directed to cut down a huge tree near town hall and hired Pete Ryan to carve the bottom, thus the beginning of our chainsaw carvings throughout Hope. Brigade Days was started by Coun. Ken James. Bud negotiated with Hollywood to film movies here – Shoot to Kill starring Sidney Portier then Rambo: First Blood with Sylvester Stallone.

The existing senior citizens building was moved and is used extensively to date. Bud was also involved in negotiating with the provincial government to acquire First Beach area at Coquihalla Lake for one dollar and the new Fraser Bridge was encouraged and built. In addition, he negotiated for the very last small town grant with MLA Harry Lali for the swimming poollibrary complex, and was influential with the hockey arena and curling rink. It has been suggested the downtown park be named Gardner Park. This tribute would be history for Hope. Elaine Gardner

Unmet needs in the Fraser Valley In July, United Way announced $90,000 available for programs that focus on reducing poverty, ensuring children 0-6 succeed or reducing homelessness. The grants are to develop or increase skills that will reduce reliance on crisis services such as food banks or shelters. While it is great news that we have $90,000 available, it’s incredibly bad news that we have over $400,000 in requests. This identifies an incredible unmet need here in the Fraser Valley.

The recently announced child poverty rates in excess of 18 per cent is further example of the desperate need of many families. It is very worrisome when many children are going to school without adequate nutrition or parents are working longer hours to try to make ends meet. While parents work harder and longer, they aren’t able to spend enough quality time with their children. I hope the United Way’s current fundraising cam-

paign achieves or exceeds the goal of $800,000 so there is more funding available for community-

With half of the fiscal year in the books, the B.C. government is clinging to a small surplus that was promised in this spring’s election. Finance Minister Mike de Jong presented the province’s second quarter budget update last week, projecting that the fiscal year will end in March with a surplus of $165

million. That’s up $29 million from the September budget update. Corporate tax revenue is higher than expected, making up for personal tax revenue that was $284 million less than forecast. Part of the decline in personal income tax is due to employment, which de Jong said was disappointingly “flat lined” so far in 2013. He said unemployment has “dropped modestly” and full-time employment has grown, but the province has work to do to meet its jobs plan goal. NDP finance critic Mike Farnworth said the heavily advertised jobs plan is a flop, and the unemployment rate is down largely because

Finance Minister Mike de Jong shows changes in budget update, helped by higher than expected revenues from ICBC and other commercial Crown corporations.

12,500 people have left B.C. to seek work since the plan was launched two years ago. “Just look at the job numbers,” Farnworth said. “By their own admission, they’re pathetic.” Another revenue loss

for the B.C. treasury is provincial sales tax revenue, which is running $100 million below the budget forecast for the year. De Jong said one factor in that is that not all businesses have registered to collect and remit the PST since the

province cancelled the harmonized sales tax last March. More than 102,000 businesses have applied to register for the PST, and the finance ministry is continuing to assist businesses with seminars and one-onone consultations on switching over. De Jong said finance ministry staff have given businesses time to adjust and comply, but the grace period is ending. “As we move into 2014, we’re going to expect people to fulfil their obligations and remit PST that they are obliged to, and officials will be pursuing that with the diligence that you would expect,” de Jong said.

law without being punished. He said the results on speed limit reform show significant support for change, but added the gender gap was a surprise. “Half of men driving out there say we’re just going too slow, we should be going a little bit faster. But they’re only supported by one in four women.” Canseco said it appears those in favour of higher speed limits have so far been “a little bit louder” in rallying support than those worried about change. But he suggested a measured, careful approach by the government to lift limits on selected routes may win yet majority support. Transportation Minister Todd Stone kicked off a public review of B.C. rural highway speed limits last Friday with a series of eight regional public forums running to Jan. 24. For details of the Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review or to register your comment, see http://engage.gov.bc.ca/safetyandspeedreview.

Stone has indicated the government may be prepared to raise speed limits on some rural highways, which are now mostly posted at 100 kilometres per hour, except for the 110 limit on the Coquihalla and parts of the Okanagan Connector. Stone said research has shown the biggest danger are vehicles that are driving much faster or slower than the prevailing speed on the route. “It’s not speed in and of itself which kills. It’s variations in speed,” he said. Improved roads and vehicle safety are among the reasons he cites for potentially higher limits. The review is also examining issues like the dangers of wildlife collisions, snow tire regulations and slower moving vehicles that don’t keep pace with traffic or clog passing lanes. The government has repeatedly said it has no plans to reintroduce photo radar and Stone said the review won’t consider enforcement changes.

A new poll has found more B.C. residents support a return to photo radar than endorse higher speed limits on the province’s highways. The Insights West poll conducted for Black Press found 37 per cent back higher highway speed limits, while 55 per cent said they should be kept the same and five per cent would lower them. Meanwhile, 39 per cent support bringing back photo radar to help curb speeding, while 53 per cent were opposed. The camera-equipped roadside vans automatically detected speeders and issued tickets by mail in the 1990s and were eliminated in 2001 by the incoming BC Liberal government. The findings split sharply on gender lines, with women and older drivers much more likely to oppose higher speed limits and support photo radar speed enforcement. Just 25 per cent of women said highway speed limits should be raised (65 per cent said they should stay the same), while 50 per cent of men were in favour of higher limits. Among respondents aged 55 and up, 31 per cent supported higher limits, while twice as many – 62 per cent –  said they shouldn’t change. A third of men supported bringing back photo radar, while that jumped to 43 per cent among women and 48 per cent among those 55 and over – more than the 46 per cent in that age group who oppose its return. Insights West vice-president Mario Canseco said the support for photo radar may be less about bringing back what many considered an unfair cash grab and more a reflection of frustration that other drivers break the

The price most commuters will pay to cross the new Port Mann Bridge will double from $1.50 to $3 on Jan. 1

Bridge toll discount stays until new year Jeff Nagel Black Press

The half-price tolls to cross the Port Mann Bridge will remain in effect until Jan. 1, when the year-long discount ends and motorists who now pay $1.50 will be charged the full $3. Officials previously expected to open all the new Highway 1 lanes through Coquitlam and Burnaby in early to mid-December and said the discount would be eliminated at that time. Now they say all the new lanes will be open before Christmas but the toll discount will be kept in place

for the rest of the month. About 20 per cent of regular vehicles using the bridge already pay the full $3 toll, while 80 per cent qualified for the 50 per cent discount by signing up with the TReO electronic tolling system within three months of the bridge opening last December. Final work on the project will continue next year. The bridge won’t open the final two of its 10 lanes until next summer, when the old Port Mann Bridge will be fully dismantled and the outer lanes can be connected to the bridge approaches.

The other cases reviewed by Denham involved a 2008 study of formaldehyde in the air in Prince George, a 2010 study of Lyme disease cases, well water tests by the Cowichan Valley Regional District at Cobble Hill, and mould contamination in a student residence at Simon Fraser University.

Denham issued a report Monday reviewing five cases where government disclosure was questioned. In only one of those cases, the 2010 collapse of a private irrigation dam in the Oliver area, did she find the province didn’t meet its obligation to warn the public. While government agencies met their obligation in the other cases, Denham noted that in since B.C.’s freedom of information law came into effect in 1993, the only proactive warnings is-

Backdrops of cathedrals and snow will set the stage for an evening with Winter Harp on Dec. 17. The world-class ensemble celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and returns to Chilliwack with a show that takes on the look of a luminous pre-Raphaelite painting. With golden Celtic and classical harps, drums, tambourines, temple bells, flutes and an assortment of dazzling ancient rare instruments, Winter Harp’s performance is a magical journey overflowing with heartwarming carols, songs and stories celebrating the festive season. “One of the reasons Winter Harp has been a 20-year success is that it gives people Christmas,” said co-founder and director Lori Pappajohn. “The familiar carols and the touching stories take people home – home to Christmas, with its rich and cherished memories. What we bring is different from any Christmas show you will ever see. The combination of music and story, rhythm and song, the backdrops, the gorgeous fabrics and colours of the medieval attire, the rich and resonant instruments and that hard-todefine something special comes together every year, at every concert, to wrap us in pure magic.” Known for generating standing ovations, soldout concerts and rave reviews, this ensemble, founded in 1993 by Pappajohn and poet/narrator Alan Woodland in a small chapel in Vancouver, has grown to include up to a dozen cities in its annual December tours throughout western Canada. Over the years, tens of thousands of people have made attending Winter Harp a part of their holiday tradition. The ensemble has 10 CDs to their name and have performed concerts on radio and TV. For the 2013 anniversary tour, legendary harpist Kim Robertson will join the ensemble once again. A virtuoso musician, Robertson is among the world’s leading Celtic harpists, credited with bringing about the renaissance of the Celtic harp in North America.

BARRY STEWART / THE STANDARD

Hope peewee Wildcats goalie Brayden Gelowitz stares helplessly at a puck that got past him in the opening game of the Hope peewee house tournament last weekend. Hope was in the midst of a huge come-frombehind surge and a goal here could have given the Cloverdale opponents a chance to turn the tide. Luckily for Gelowitz, the puck dropped just outside the goal and Hope carried on for a 6-2 win.

Wildcats win opening game at home tournament Barry Stewart Hope Standard

The Hope peewee Wildcats started off with an exciting win at their home tournament last weekend. The opening game at 5 p.m. on Friday, versus Cloverdale, was a seesaw battle, tied at 1-1 after the first period. The visitors got the lone goal in the second frame, “Then we opened the floodgates,” said head coach Lui Talarico. Jarren Payant converted a Brady Loring pass to tie it with about nine minutes to go in the game, then Jake Meijer popped in another shortly after.

“As soon as we scored that third goal, Cloverdale really got down on themselves,” said Talarico, a coach and referee for most of the past 20 years. The visitors were allowing way too much time and free space in their defensive end and the Wildcats took full advantage. James Connor knocked in the next two and Bogdan Kostebelov closed out the scoring, with his second of the match — capping off a five-goal run for the Wildcats. Unfortunately, they picked up their fifth penalty in the dying seconds, which negated their sportsmanship point.

“We were in trouble with dumb penalties through the whole tournament,” said the coach. “You’re allowed eight minutes in penalties. After that, you lose your sportsmanship point. We only got the extra point in two of our four games. Even in a loss, a team that stays out of the penalty box can gain an extra point — and that could be crucial in tie-breakers to determine the teams that go on to the finals. “We usually only get two or three penalties a game,” added Talarico. James Connor and Blake Visser led the way with two goals each

in a crazy game versus Surrey C6 on Saturday morning. In total, 19 shots got past the goalies. “We got up 6-2 in the second period, then Surrey came back and won 11-8,” said Talarico, whose son Mike is an assistant coach on the team. Saturday afternoon, Payant produced two goals and an assist against Semiahmoo C2 but the Wildcats let their 3-2 lead slip away with only five minutes left in the game. The tie and too many penalties meant they had no chance of making the final four match-ups and their last game was a 6-1 loss to the eventual tournament win-

Tyson Goglin scored the lone Hope goal in the first period. “The other teams said it was a great tournament,” said coordinator, Joanne Biltzan. “We had some returning coaches from last year, who said they like coming to Hope for our tournaments because we put on a good one. There were lots of compliments about the raffle baskets and how great they looked. “Everything ran smoothly. All played hard and had fun,” said Biltzan.

Chiefs defense implodes in weekend losses The Chilliwack Chiefs were ventilated for 21 goals in three weekend losses to BCHL top dogs. The Powell River Kings invaded Prospera Centre Friday night, coming away with an 8-5 win. The Chiefs led 3-1 through 20 minutes in this one, out-shooting the Kings 17-9 in the opening frame. Jake Hand, Mathieu Tibbet and Carter Cochrane had the goals, and the home team looked to be in good shape. But the tables turned in the middle frame. The Kings scored three times on 11 shots. Drew Dorantes scored shorthanded at 3:53, with Ryan Scarfo and Jarid Lukosevicius adding evenstrength markers. Still, an Austin Plevy snipe at 11:27 had the Chiefs up 4-3 heading to period three. Cochrane and Powell River’s J.J. Coleshaw traded goals early in the final frame, then it was all downhill for the home team. Dorantes scored a power play goal at 9:45. Scarfo (at 12:11) and Aidan Wright (at 13:28) tallied to wrap up the scoring.

Chilliwack’s Kyle Westeringh gives the lumber to Langley’s Viktor Dombrovskiy during Sunday’s BCHL action in Langley.

Chiefs starter Spencer Tremblay lasted 30:29 in net, giving up four goals on 16 shots. Backup Josh Halpenny logged 29:31, giving up four goals on 18 shots. Their team traveled to

Penticton Saturday night for a date with the Vees. Tremblay went the distance in this one, giving up every goal in a 9-4 loss. Penticton led 3-1 after one period on goals by

Cody DePourcq, Jake Ahlgren and Brad McClure, with Cooper Rush replying for the Chiefs. The teams traded two goals each in period two, with Rush and Blake Gober

scoring for Chilliwack and McClure and Riley Alferd lighting the lamp for the Vees. Kurt Black had the final Chilliwack goal, with DePourcq, Brett Beauvais,

Jack Ramsay and Brendan Lamont scoring third period goals for Penticton. Sunday’s road game in Langley was better, but the Chiefs still lost 4-2. Plevy got Chilliwack on the board first, netting his 13th of the year 7:34 into period one. But Langley got the next four — from Kevin Kilistoff, Matt Ustaski, Viktor Dombrovskiy and Will Cook — to lead 4-1. Kiefer McNaughton scored with 36 seconds left to make the final score look better. The free-falling Chiefs have lost four straight. Their record of 7-19-1-2 gives them the third worst winning percentage (.293) behind the Trail Smoke Eaters (7-20-2-1 for .283) and Alberni Valley Bulldogs (7-202-2 for .290). The Chiefs are on the road this weekend, visiting the coast for games against Powell River (Friday), Nanaimo (Saturday) and Alberni Valley (Sunday). The next home game is Dec. 13 versus the Vees.

Cascades take three of four games Dan Kinvig Black Press

After running a gauntlet of teams ranked in the top five nationally in recent weeks, the University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball squad has emerged better for the experience. The Cascades registered an impressive homecourt sweep of the UBC Thunderbirds on the weekend, winning 69-62 on Friday and 71-63 on Saturday to even their record at 5-5 heading into the Christmas break. “We’ve faced some really good teams who have shown us what we weren’t so good at,” Cascades coach Adam Friesen said, alluding to recent losses to the Victoria Vikes, Alberta Golden Bears and Saskatchewan Huskies. “We accepted the lessons and we got to work during the week at practice, and we’re starting to improve. It’s great to see.” On Friday, the Cascades raced out to a 24-10 lead after the first quarter and fended off UBC’s sub-

sequent comeback attempts. Saturday’s game was closer throughout – UFV rallied to take a 52-51 lead at the end of the third quarter, then pulled away down the stretch with Kevon Parchment snaring a series of crucial rebounds and Manny Dulay hitting a pair of clutch threepointers. Parchment had an absolutely massive weekend for the Cascades – he stuffed the stat sheet with 20 points, 12 rebounds and six assists on Friday, and racked up 26 points, 15 boards and four steals on Saturday.

Cascades women shake offensive slump Coming off road losses to Alberta and Saskatchewan the previous weekend, the UFV women’s squad found its reservoir of offensive confidence at a low ebb. It evaporated further on Friday, as unranked UBC came into the Envision Athletic Centre and

scored a 56-54 upset win. The No. 6-ranked Cascades got off to a horrendous start, shooting just 17.9 per cent in the first half and 33.3 per cent for the game. UFV found its mojo on Saturday, though – they lit up the T-Birds in the first half, knocking down 50 per cent of their shots to seize a 45-17 lead, and they cruised to a 71-43 victory. “I think we’re a team that’s had our confidence shaken a little bit at the offensive end of the floor, and I think you were seeing a little bit of that (on Friday),” said Cascades coach Al Tuchscherer, whose team reclaimed first place in the Pacific Division at 7-3. “Some shots weren’t going, and you start really questioning some things. Tonight, we hit some shots early, which was good, and we built on that.” Sarah Wierks led Saturday’s offensive onslaught with 22 points and 13 rebounds, and Nataliia Gavryliuk chipped in with 16 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals.
