Every day in Chilliwack, roughly 40 trains rumble through the heart of Chilliwack at speeds reaching 105 kph. GREG KNILL/ PROGRESS

Recent rail incidents heighten local concern Katie Bartel The Progress Recent rail derailments in Canada and the U.S. have sparked fear among some Chilliwack residents living near railroad tracks. One homeowner, who did not want her name used in this story, has lived on Darlene Avenue, just off Broadway, for 11 years, with her backyard a stone’s throw from the tracks; nothing but a row of hedges separates the two. Yet despite hearing – and feeling – the trains at all hours, they’ve never bothered her or her husband. Until now. “We weren’t worried about them before, but now we’ve started thinking, ‘what if?’” she said. “All we have are those trees …

Trail vandalism slides into malicious territory Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Even a skilled mountain biker would not have seen the hidden danger lurking below until it was too late. Anyone taking the jump would have plummeted onto sawed-up chunks of wood — with the unsuspecting rider suffering untold injuries. Mark Steinebach, president of the Vedder Mountain Trails Association, has never seen trail vandalism like this in his life. Two incidents of malicious damage to the jump features have been reported, along with sign thefts which may or may not be related. “We love this area. We love the trails and we exist to make these trails better,” Steinebach explained in an interview with The Progress. “We’re all about making them fun and safe.” One incident was reported by trail users at the end of December. A contingent from Fraser Valley Mountain Bike Association, Vedder Running Club, Chilliwack Outdoor Club and several VMTA members took action, and repaired the damaged trail. The end result was an even better trail. Then another report came in last week, with vandalism affecting multiple features. The damage

required the use of an extension ladder and chainsaws to wreak the savage destruction on the wooden structures. These are two well-used and well maintained trails, said Steinebach, known as ‘Skidder’ and ‘Dilemma’ by the mountain biking community that makes up part of the VMTA. ‘Dilemma’ gets the bulk of nonmotorized traffic among trail users, but the different groups share the resource.

“We are just outraged that someone decided to wreck the jumps, which is bad enough, but it also looks like there was some intent to harm somebody,” Steinebach said. The wood sections were deliberately cut on an angle and made to look normal, with the destroyed features and gap jumps just waiting to injure someone. Chillingly, the evidence of the damage to the jumps, the way they were cut on an angle, appeared

identical on both trails. “It’s a nasty piece of work.” Malicious intent to harm other bikers is the only conclusion, since the structures couldn’t even be patched up with a brace. “We can’t stand by and do nothing,” he implored. “Someone could get hurt next time. It might be a child.” Of course riders wear helmets and protective gear, but when they come to an abrupt halt, like they would in the case of these

The photo on the left shows what bikers would see on approach to the jump; above is what they’d find on landing. SUBMITTED

vandalized jumps, they’re going to get hurt, said Steinebach. These jumps are taken at speeds of 30km/hr by cyclists with skill. “They’re super fun. But the rider is not on these jumps with the idea that they might collapse.” Steinebach knows because he’s ridden them. These incidents have caused unprecedented challenges for the VMTA members. Adding surveillance cameras and more volunteer eyes in the woods, are some of the ways they’re responding. “There are way more eyes and ears in the forest than people are aware of. “There have been no reports of any conflicts,” he said. “It’s just disturbing. Anyone who may have heard the chainsaw running or saw someone walking out of the bush carrying a ladder and/or a chainsaw are being sought can contact the VMTA at www.vmta.ca “We need people to come forward to help us here,” he said. The VMTA will offer a cash reward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of perpetrator(s), and are asking witnesses to call RCMP at 604-7924611. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/chwkjourno

School achievement numbers questioned Fire in the Katie Bartel The Progress One Chilliwack school trustee wasn’t buying the “good news” numbers featured in the superintendent’s report on student achievement. Despite multiple school district officials boasting about last year’s successes in achievement at Tuesday’s board meeting, school trustee Heather Maahs could not accept the report. Maahs is concerned the numbers looked a bit too pie in the sky. “The math doesn’t work for me,” she said. “I can’t make heads or tails out of it … if I’m making decisions based on these numbers they’re giving us, I can’t make a good decision.” This year the school district rated its success more on percentage rate of growth than the number of students meeting or exceeding expectations as has been done in previous years. For instance, with the Grade 8 reading assessment (RAD), the percentage rate of growth

SINCE 1973

LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED

for aboriginal boys meeting or exceeding expectations was 260 per cent. However, looking at it from the number of students meeting or exceeding expectations, that translates into a a 26 per cent increase from 2011-12 when only 10 per cent were meeting or exceeding to 2012-13 when 36 per cent were. “These numbers look fantastic, which of course I’m not opposed to, except that they don’t corroborate each other,” said Maahs. “It doesn’t give you a standardized norm; you’re not looking at the same thing from year to year. “I don’t want people to think that we’re playing smoke and mirrors games with numbers.” Kirk Savage, director of instruction, disagrees. Savage provided those in attendance with a five-minute “math lesson” to help better understand the new rating system. “It’s a truer example of what’s happening,” said Savage. And while the numbers this way do look more impressive, he admitted, they’d also

look “really bad” if there was regression “We’re trying to report as effectively as we can and at the end of the day, we’re just trying to tell the story a bit better,” said Savage. Plus, while this new percentage rate of growth column was added to the report, the previous reporting mechanism was still also included in the report. The report noted significant improvements in reading and reading comprehension at the grades 3 and 6 level, as well as in middle school. There were also improvements seen in numeracy, and completion

rates. However, while there has been some improvements for aboriginal students, the gap is still far too wide between aboriginal and non-aboriginal students, said superintendent Evelyn Novak. There also continues to be a gender imbalance with female students performing at a far more elevated level than male students. In nearly every assessment listed, aside from the Grade 4 FSA numeracy (both at 72 per cent meeting or exceeding) and the six-year completion rates (both at 78 per cent), the percentage of female students meeting or exceeding was anywhere from a few percentage points more to as high as 25 per cent more, which was in the Grade 8 reading assessment that had 69 per cent of female students meeting or exceeding compared to 44 per cent of male students. To see the full report, visit the school district website at www.sd33.bc.ca under board meeting agendas. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

CRV does not appear criminal A fire that broke out Tuesday in a detached shop on a property in the Chilliwack River Valley does not appear to be criminal in nature. About 30 firefighters were on-scene for the call, said Mike Danyluk, deputy chief of Chilliwack River Valley Fire Department, including those from CRVFD and Hall 4 in Sardis, and the career staffed truck. “Fire damage was limited to a detached garage/shop,” Danyluk said. The owners were at home at the time and got out safely, and were among several to call 911 to report the blaze in the outbuilding in the 4400 block of Estate Drive. Some of the owner’s belongings were in the building including a piano and a car. The shop housed “a legitimate business,” RCMP officials said, when asked if the structure contained a marijuana grow-operation. The exterior of the house sustained minor heat damage from the radiant heat.  Officials can’t put a dollar figure to the fire damage, which will be determined by insurance. “The cause is still under investigation, but does not appear suspicious,” he confirmed. There were no civilian or firefighter injuries reported.

Belkorp recycling plant depends on Metro reversal Black Press The firm that runs the Cache Creek landfill wants to build a $30-million highly mechanized plant in Coquitlam to pull recyclables from garbage before it’s dumped or incinerated. But Belkorp Environmental Services is also squaring off against Metro Vancouver, saying it will only build the plant if the regional district backs down on imposing restrictions on how

material recovery facilities operate. Monday’s announcement is the latest shot by private industry across the bow of Metro’s strategy to burn more garbage in waste-to-energy plants instead of dumping it in landfills. Belkorp vice-president Russ Black said the proposed plant could process 260,000 tonnes of garbage per year – more than a quarter of Metro’s waste stream. He estimates residual garbage in the region –  even after intensive

efforts to recycle – still consists of 36 per cent recyclable material, much of it paper and plastics. Belkorp and other proponents of material recovery facilities (MRFs) say advancing technology to sort garbage holds much promise to pull out more usable material. Black says Metro’s bylaw 280, passed in October but awaiting provincial government approval, restricts MRFs too tightly and must be rejected by the

province or revised by the regional board for Belkorp’s plant to go ahead. He accuses Metro of deliberately hamstringing MRFs because their advanced sorting machinery will pull too much paper and plastic out of the garbage, leaving insufficient combustible fuel to justify building a costly new incinerator. He called on Metro to suspend its wasteto-energy strategy for five years while mixedwaste MRFs like the

Belkorp Environmental Services says garbage-sort technologies undercut incineration.

one Belkorp proposes are built and tested. “Step back on this $500 million unnecessary expense,” Black urged of a possible second Metro incinerator. “Postpone it for five years. Let these facilities get up and running. See if they can get what they claim they will get out of the waste stream. And then assess the need afterwards for incineration.” Black said he sees room for three mixedwaste MRFs in Metro Vancouver –  the proposed one in Coquitlam, one already mostly built by Northwest Waste Solutions in South Vancouver and potentially a third one in Surrey, in addition to another in the Fraser Valley. He argues all garbage should go through a MRF before it’s landfilled or burned to retrieve materials. “Our company philosophy now is we don’t want to take unprocessed waste to landfill.” MRFs weren’t contemplated when Metro’s

solid waste management plan was drawn up, but it calls for the region to maximize recycling and material recovery ahead of either landfilling or incineration. Coquitlam has endorsed Belkorp’s proposal. Coquitlam city manager Peter Steblin said the new plant would maximize recycling and reuse of material and help meet Metro’s waste diversion targets at no extra cost to residents. The plant would be built on 16 acres of industrial land Belkorp owns on United Boulevard. It would create 80 new green jobs and use technology increasingly in use in California. Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, chair of Metro’s zero waste committee, said he sees no reason to delay the waste-to-energy procurement process, which could see Metro burn an additional 370,000 tonnes of garbage per year starting in 2018.

The regional district will begin optioning potential sites in the next few weeks. Belkorp is trying to derail the strategy so more garbage might keep getting trucked to Cache Creek, he said. Brodie said Metro’s new bylaw leaves enough room for MRFs to operate, and proponents who disagree probably want to see their machines take over the job of separating recyclables from households. “We’ve got a whole industry that has been generated because Metro Vancouver has insisted for 20 years on source separation,” Brodie said, adding a MRF-centred model could unravel years of recycling education efforts, result in more contamination of recyclables and undercut existing green industries. “I have a hard time believing we can put the solution in private hands like that and it will get us to our goal.”

New pedestrian crossings get Love your pet! green light for Vedder Road

The Chilliwack

Progress

Are you devoted to your dog, crazy about your cat, picky about your parrot or simply silly about your snake?

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Darting across four lanes of traffic on a busy arterial like Vedder Road can have its challenges. Some pedestrian crosswalks have led to complaints at Chilliwack city hall. They’ve been the scene of injuries, and near misses. Now two new full-stop pedestrian signals are going in along Vedder Road on the south side, at Storey Avenue and at Alder Avenue. Council redirected the issue back to staff twice for expert guidance on the range of options it could consider, before it came up a third time in council chambers. Improvements in the form of new traffic signals were finally greenlighted at the last council meeting. They’re road-tested, and everyone is familiar with the red-ambergreen signals, with the walk and don’t walk signs. They’re considered the safest option for pedestrians. Crashes are relatively infrequent at the crosswalks, but when they do occur, they tend to be serious, according to staff. A senior citizen was struck by a vehicle last July trying to zip across one of the crossings in question. That highlighted an area of concern for city

Avenue to avoid the rail crossing, which was approved. Both lights will be coordinated to reduce the instances of stopping twice, and the existing signals at Knight and Spruce will also be programmed for coordination to improve service on Vedder. jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

FHA medical health officer seeks e-cigarette ban Adrian MacNair Black Press

“The concern we have, besides our child trying to emulate smoking, is the lack of morals or common sense when it comes to the sale of such items,” Braico said. The eZee Cig’s packaging says it is not a smoking cessation device, is not associated with any health claim and is not intended to be used with nicotine. Although the package states it is “intended

for use by persons of legal smoking age,” it is not regulated under the Food and Drug Act by Health Canada. Ezee Cig comes in flavours of blueberry, cherr y, chocolate, grape, menthol, and tobacco. E-cigarettes with nicotine delivery meant for smoking cessation are regulated under the Food and Drug Act and restricted to use for adults over the age

fruit-flavoured tobacco products in a bid to protect children, citing a poll finding broad support in the province. “We are urging the B.C. government to protect children from the predatory marketing practices of the tobacco industry and the products which, through their packag-

ing and appearance, are aggressively targeted to youth,” said cancer society’s Kathryn Seely. The group wants to ban all flavoured cigarillos, water pipe tobacco, smokeless tobacco and menthol cigarettes. Seely said flavours like chocolate, peach, cherr y and strawberry appeal to youth

and reduce the harsh effects of cigarette smoke, making it easier for youth to experiment and become addicted. She cited a previous national youth survey that found 53 per cent of youth tobacco users in B.C. –  30,500 students –  had used flavoured tobacco. – with files from Jeff Nagel

The rise in popularity of electronic cigarettes has prompted medical health officers throughout the country to call for restrictions in their usage. Fraser Health chief medical health officer Paul Van Buynder said B.C.’s chief medical health officers met recently to discuss the topic of e-cigarettes and their largely unregulated usage in public places. Nova Scotia’s health ministry has proposed to ban e-cigarettes from bars and restaurants, whether the devices are loaded with nicotine or just flavours. “We’ve taken enormous efforts to stop smoking in buildings, parks, hospitals, schools and so on, and our current guidelines don’t address these,” Van Buynder said. “So, we have situations where children may feel that they can use these in a school ground.” Worse still, Van Buynder suggested non-nicotine flavoured e-cigarette vaporizers could be a gateway to smoking tobacco. He said flavoured e-cigarettes are clearly aimed at the teenage market and pose a danger to the progress made against smoking cessation. “It’s going to make children used to holding cigarettes, sucking on cigarettes,” he said. “This is a very retrograde step and a huge risk to our tobacco control programs.” Tsawwassen father Joe Braico was recently surprised to find how accessible they are to children when his 11-year-old son bought a $10 blueberry-flavoured electronic cigarette from a local retailer. The boy decided they were “pretty cool” when one of his friends bought one and decided to get one himself. The product, called eZee Cig, is a disposable electronic vaporizer replica cigarette with an advertised 600 puffs. It glows when the person inhales and then releases a realistic puff of smoke.

of 19. But replica cigarettes like these remain legal for sale to minors. Van Buynder said health authorities are working to pressure the federal government to regulate e-cigarettes in the same way as other tobacco products, including vaporizers like eZee Cig. “We want to make sure that all of our tobacco legislation – whether it’s municipal or hospital-based – changes in order to make it clear that we’re not interested in having e-cigarettes, with or without nicotine or tobacco or any other form available within our sites,” he said. In 2010, Health Canada made it illegal for retailers to sell some types of flavoured tobacco in products weighing less than 1.4 grams. The federal prohibition didn’t cover menthol and the Canadian Cancer Society says producers skirted the other flavour restrictions by making cigarillos slightly larger. The society is urging B.C. to ban candy or

Chilliwack homes line much of the CN rail line that runs through Chilliwack. GOOGLE MAPS

A rail line runs through us RAIL from Front “They need to slow down. It’s definitely a safety issue,” Cameron said. The designated track speed in the greater Chilliwack area is 105 kph, and slows down to 80 kph at the Young Road crossing. Lana Sterling, with her three children between the ages of 10 and 17, lives in a rented home on McIntosh Drive that backs onto the tracks. Rail safety is always a concern, she said. “It always sits at the back of your mind.” When contacted by The Progress, CN wouldn’t speculate on the safety of residents living near Chilliwack’s tracks if a train was to derail. CN also wouldn’t specify the types of dangerous goods it moves through the city, “due to security concerns.” CN does, however, provide the city’s mayor, fire chief, chief administrative officer, and other such designated persons responsible for emergency planning and preparedness with an annual list of dangerous goods (types and volume) that have been transported in a 12-month period. “In the past 10 years, CN’s main-line track accidents have declined by more than 50 per cent despite increased freight volumes,” said Emily Hamer, CN regional manager, in an emailed statement to The Progress. “A full 99.998 per cent of CN rail movements of dangerous goods, many of which are essential to the Northern American economy and communities across the continent and include crude oil, arrive at their destination without a release caused by an accident.” Still, Mayor Sharon Gaetz understands her community’s concern. “Recent train derailments, including the incident in Burnaby last week, have brought rail safety to the forefront of many people’s minds,” she acknowledged. “Our primary concern remains the safety of our residents and the City of Chilliwack takes that very seriously … with plans and protocols in place to deal with a wide variety of incidents that could possibly occur.” Jim MacDonald, Chilliwack’s emergency planning coordinator, said the city is as prepared as it can be for a rail disaster.

The Progress The City of Chilliwack is confident it has the necessary safety measures in place to combat a rail disaster if one were to occur. But survival also depends on the community, says Chilliwack’s emergency planning coordinator. Emergency service members can partake in countless disaster exercises, said Jim MacDonald, assistant fire chief and emergency preparedness coordinator, but people need to take responsibility for their survival as well. “We hope that people prepare themselves as best as they can,” said MacDonald.

Education is key. Depending on the disaster, the city will either evacuate nearby residents or will order “shelter in place” if chemical or radiological contaminants are released into the environment. Shelter in place means taking immediate shelter where you are, to close your doors, windows, switch off your furnace, and seal out any other such outside air source. “Find the least exposed room in your house, and stay there,” said MacDonald. The fire department has direct access to the radio stations and will update the community regularly on the emergency situation via those channels.

OVERSEAS AUTO BODY & AUTO GLASS FOR AN APPOINTMENT 604.853.9707 The movement of oil by rail has increased dramaticly over the past year, and is expected to climb even higher.

All of the fire department’s members, career and on-call, are trained in one level or another of hazardous material awareness and operation incidents. They’re trained in how to proceed upon disaster, not to rush in, but to investigate from a distance first. Each truck is equipped with binoculars and a book filled with descriptions and protocols for dealing with the various hazardous materials. The department also has two trained hazmat technicians on staff, and two department members, one being MacDonald, who have been trained by the rail companies’ top tank car specialists in Colorado. The training, which uses live trains that have been tipped, and are on fire, and leaking dangerous chemicals, is paid for by the rail companies, and is extended to fire departments across North America. “We’d love to train everybody [in the Chilliwack department], but it’s really expensive and is just totally outside any [organization’s] budget,” MacDonald said. The fire department’s members also partake in local disaster training exercises, organized by the rail companies, every couple years. “These transportation companies want us to be as well trained as we can be, because by the time they show up they don’t want to be walking into a horse show,” said MacDonald. “We’re the guys who show up first and they want to make sure we’re getting it right from the start.” Chilliwack’s fire department is also developing a yearly, back-to-basics, “hazmat street smarts” training for its members. “Are we ready for it? We’re as ready as we can be,” said MacDonald.

Preparation key to emergency planning Katie Bartel

MacDonald suggests to write the local stations’ call numbers (98.3 and 89.5) on a piece of duct tape and attach that to your emergency radio with spare batteries. He also suggests having a 72-hour survival kit handy, and to position yourself in an area with adequate water supply. If the area needs to be evacuated, the city’s emergency response team will go door-to-door, if it’s safe, to get residents out of their homes. They will also announce evacuation orders through a loudspeaker in their emergency vehicles. While the city is prepared to accommodate evacuees with food and shelter, either at local hotels, or in school gym-

nasiums, or other such facilities, MacDonald said, for those who can, it’s best to have a place planned in advance to go to rather than rely on the city. “I think it’s important for everyone to realize, even though they might feel helpless, there’s a lot they can do,” said MacDonald. “They can have a portable radio that runs on batteries; they can have a host family; they can educate themselves on what shelter in place means. “What makes it work for us, really, is that people understand their part in it.” For more information, visit the Canadian Red Cross website at www. redcross.ca. kbartel@theprogress.com

Train trouble

Rail traffic in Chilliwack is nothing new. Every day roughly 40 trains rumble through the city, taking grain and raw resources to Pacific markets, and bringing goods from overseas to Canadian consumers. In the past, they’ve taken our troops to war and brought royalty to our doorstep. They’ve been an iconic part of our heritage, and an institution that today still binds us together. But lately, they’ve also been a source of concern. The tragedy of Lac-Mégantic, where 47 people died last summer, highlighted the potential danger. A similar derailment – explosive, though fortunately without fatalities – recently occurred in New Brunswick. These and other incidents have residents and politicians calling for greater care in the transportation of goods, particularly oil. Yesterday, the Canadian Transportation Safety Board offered three interim recommendations following its investigation of the Lac-Mégantic disaster. Among them were tougher standards for the tanker cars used to transport oil. The TSB also urged lower speeds for dangerous goods, and more thought in choice of routes. All these recommendations have relevance for Chilliwack. The number of tanker cars travelling through the city has increased, and will continue to increase as oil producers inland seek markets for their products. In the past four years, the volume of oil shipped by rail in Canada has climbed from 500 carloads to 400,000. This increase has municipal politicians concerned. Working through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, they’ve been given a more accurate description of the products being transported through their boundaries, albeit a year after the fact. In a city like Chilliwack should that be enough? Train traffic has had a relatively unblemished record in Chilliwack. But surely if the commodities transported change significantly, so should our approach. One resident, who hears and feels the trains pass each day, wonders if it’s time to at least look at the speeds. That may be one place to start. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

Research controversy harms Canada’s reputation At Health Canada, scientists are so concerned about losing historical research data that one of them has resorted to squirreling away documents and hiding material in his basement. At the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, irreplaceable scientific documents are at risk of being lost as seven of its 11 libraries are closed.  Federal Fisheries Minister Gail Shea might claim that the information would be digitized and made available to scientists and the public but many scientists are deeply skeptical. Just as Minister of State for Science and Technology Greg Rickford made claim to CBC that “Research is vibrant and flourishing right across the country,” researchers with their boots on the ground are aghast with disbelief. They know better. “Much of the material in the various libraries has not been digitized yet, although some has,” said

Peter Wells, adjunct professor in the Faculty of Management and the Faculty of Science and senior research fellow, International Ocean Institute, Dalhousie University. “An important uncertainty is what has been scanned and what has not been. Even if it has been scanned, are there not some invaluable documents Margaret wor th keeping in whole copy? EVANS Would you not keep the Rosetta Stone intact even if its content has been digitized? Is there not value in keeping rare marine documents? Marine science historians are aghast at what has been happening.” It seems this errant decision to mothball and/or destroy scientific data was made in 2012 and sug-

gestions are that it was launched by senior bureaucrats. According to Wells, the main impact has been the loss of local collections to specific research institutes and no one seems to know what has been thrown out, re-distributed or actually kept. “There is a real need to interview some of the remaining librarians who I am sure will be doing their best to minimize the damage of the closures and material culling or re-distribution.” Contrary to some reporting, this is not a “small” Canadian story. There’s a domino effect. Not only are libraries in many federal departments being closed (the famed Freshwater Institute library in Winnipeg and the historic St. Andrews Biological Station) but whole programs and laboratories are being axed and experienced people from scientists to librarians are being dismissed.

The implications are daunting. The loss of foundation science compromises current studies. Historical data plays a vital role in defining trends and changes in resources that guide new research especially when the country may be confronted with environmental or health crises, a pandemic, an oil spill, or an accident with serious toxic consequences. NDP MP Libby Davies said that the Minister of Health Rona Ambrose needs to review the decisions made to destroy data. “You have to look into this and find out what’s going on,” said Davies. “It’s very concerning and part of this government’s mantra of clumping down on resources. It’s inexplicable and very difficult for scientists.” Wells agrees. “I am shell-shocked that our country would treat its skilled human resources such as highly trained professionals and our

information base with such callousness,” said Wells. “Who initiated this cut-throat cutting of the support of libraries? What’s the motive? Surely not money when the savings are so insignificant relative to the cost of digitization.” Wells has spent his entire career using libraries for scholarly work, building ecotoxicology science programs to protect Canada’s waters, training students, and helping with legislation. Scientists see a secretive government and an unthinking bureaucracy with an unknown agenda destroying invaluable work that could stand in the way of policy.  This has huge consequences for Canada and its international reputation. The mismanagement deserves nothing less than an investigation to get to the truth and hold those responsible to account.

Stolen homework delivers a lesson Here’s a great idea for you to make teenagers aware of.  Don’t leave your homework in your vehicle, especially when it is exam time.   My son works at Chilliwack IGA and while at work on Tuesday, Jan. 21 someone broke the window of his truck and stole his backpack with his binder full

of a semester’s worth of psychology, English, and calculus homework all due the next day. He is in Grade 12 and has exams next week and needs his own notes to study. What a let down.  He is trying to work his way through school to get good marks this term in order to qualify for scholarships

and bursaries so that he can further a career at BCIT as an electrical engineer and someone has to not only steal his backpack but possibly his career.  Please warn other teenagers: Don’t leave your backpacks in your vehicles.... because you never know. Arghhhhhh so frustrating.   Tama Menges

Teenagers need a place to go Chilliwack is a beautiful place. We have wonderful scenery, and all in all just a great culture. There are many things to do as an adult, or even child. Yet there just isn’t anything to do as youth. I mean, there is the skate park, and the leisure centre, but those sometimes aren’t the best things. First the skate park is mainly an attraction for boys, some girls

wouldn’t really count that as a hang out place. Second, the leisure centre is a place just to work out and go swimming. Not a lot of youth like to go swimming anymore since there are a lot of kids there now too. So what I am trying to say is we need more places for youth like us to hang out. If we don’t have anywhere, there is a greater chance of them getting into trouble on

the streets, and just mainly being unsafe. If we had a hangout place here in Sardis, then less kids would be getting into trouble and coming to these hangout places and just having a good time. We could solve the problems we have with teenagers getting into trouble, and also solve our problem of having nothing to do. Something we could do

End wasteful ads The Conservative government claims that it is serious about eliminating wasteful spending, yet it has ramped up the most obvious example: partisan government ads. Everyone has seen them, and that’s not cheap. Just one of their “Economic Action Plan” television commercials can cost up to $95,000 to air. Last year the government spent over $2.5 million to advertise the Canada Jobs Grant, which was never launched. Spending millions of dollars to advertise a program that doesn’t even exist is like flushing tax dollars down the toilet. Over time, all this waste adds up: since coming to office, the Harper government has spent over $600 million on advertising; by 2015 they’re projected to have spent nearly $1 billion. That’s an extraordinary amount of money. Yet some government ads have legitimate goals like promoting public health.  So how

do we keep the good and cut the bad? The federal government should follow Ontario’s model: its ads are screened before they air by a panel setup by the Auditor General to prevent partisan waste. That model has proven to be a success. That’s why I’ve introduced Bill C-544, the Elimination of Partisan Government Advertising Act, modelled on Ontario’s system. It will have the Auditor General appoint an independent advertising commission to oversee government spending on advertising and pre-screen all ads. No Member of Parliament can look their constituents in the eye and justify the kind of wasteful commercials taxpayers have paid for under the past eight years of Conservative government. Please ask your MP to support Bill C-544. We can all do without more ads for programs that don’t exist.   David McGuinty, MP Liberal Party of Canada

is create this concert building just for teenagers, where bands that sign up can play, have drinks and food there. All in all just hang out there. We could help the local teenagers and like I said solve many problems if we at least do something about this. Anything, we do would be benefiting both sides.

‘Made in Canada’ a good sell While participating in a home stay program my Chinese visitor was truly disappointed in the lack of Canadian made goods in our local retail stores. It’s sad, frustrating, and not to mention embarrassing that we have outsourced our manufacturing to countries with lower labor costs. I understand it is more cost effective to produce things this way but I think it shows a lack of pride in our ability to produce high quality goods. There are many advantages to local manufacturing, like no shipping costs, not having to wait for materials, increasing skills in Canadians, and revenue in our communities. I was able to source out local artists and cottage industry’s to show my visitor the Canadian talent and hope to one day see some of these products in our retail stores but I know that in today’s economy they cannot compete with the mass produced products from overseas.

We’ve always gone above and beyond. Now we’ve just made it official.

Dormant spraying is one of the most important winter tasks to keep most of our deciduous trees and shrubs fresh and clean. Moss, algae, fungus, overwintering insects and disease will all take their toll unless we become proactive now. Done correctly, dormant spraying is one of the easiest and most effective sprayings you can do for your trees and shrubs. It is mostly organic, very low in toxicity and safe for the environment. These preventive sprays control overwintering insects, disease and fungus which create so many problems. At this time of year when there are no leaves on deciduous plants, the job is quick and easy to do. You may even wish to prune first to reduce the number of branches that need spraying. My greatest concern, however, is that in spite of good intentions, most dormant spraying is not done very well and as a result, can be a wasted effort. It is very important to use a pressure sprayer because it is

more effective at forcing the spray into the cracks and crevices of trees and shrubs where dormant insects and diseases overwinter. Pressure sprayers also allow you to use far less spray yet still do an effective job. In other words, the extra cost of a pressure sprayer will be recovered over and Brian over MINTER again in both results and savings on the sprays needed. The timing of your spray application is important as well. Spraying before a rainfall or during freezing weather can often negate the results. You need at least eight hours of dry weather and above freezing temperatures after spraying for it to be effective. Usually spraying in the early morning, after the dew has dried off, is best. Try to choose a windless day to avoid any drifting. When you mix

your sprays, please read the instructions. Formulations are constantly changing for one reason or another, so always read the labels on the bottles. It is also a good idea to add some warm water to the sprayer before adding the spray. Mix well, then add the balance of the water to make up the correct proportion. By the way, more is not better. Use the exact measurements recommended on the label. When you have questions, ask the folks at your local garden shop. In BC, anyone who sells registered pest control products must have a provincial pesticide dispenser certificate. To get that certificate, they must continually write exams to keep up to date, and they can answer basic questions about home garden pest control. When you spray your trees, how much spray do you apply? Some folks really dose their trees, while others just squirt a bit here and there. The proper method is to use as fine a mist as possible and to spray

the bark until the spray begins to run down. It is called “spray to run off”. Keep the sprayer moving all the time, so all the bark is covered evenly. Concentrate particularly on areas where there are cracks or crevices as that is where the potential problems will be. If needed, use a ladder to get close to the branches. Don’t stand back 10 feet and set the sprayer to a coarse stream and expect it to do the job. One dormant spraying will help, but spraying two or three times is better. It is like getting algae off a retaining wall. One quick scalding won’t do it. Three sprayings are necessary to do the job properly. Remember too: lime sulphur, oils and copper spray will stain white siding, so if you have roses or other shrubs against your house, slip a piece of poly behind them before you spray. Although some labels neglect to mention it, maple trees do not like either dormant oil or lime sulphur, and avoid spraying lime sulphur on nut trees and viburnums, such as Snowball trees. Copper spray is a more effective control than lime sulphur for European canker and anthracnose, both having caused serious problems on apple trees.

Perspectives Planting the seeds for a strong future Christmas has come and gone and, along with the usual resolutions, I think there are likely some very good reflections that emerge from the traditions of the season. I had the opportunity to see the parenting skills of the next generation up close, and that brings me hope for the future. If my family experience is any reflection of what is happening more generally in our society, this topic should be among the most important and positive news stories

about the future.    Nieces and nephews filled our place with their growing brood of children. Rob My own grandLEES children are now school-aged, so we don’t have to worry about them falling down the stairs, pulling over the Christmas tree, hurting the cat

or needing to have their diapers changed. This wasn’t the case with our Christmas guests. The influx of our extended family brought many pre-school children, toddlers and infants to our house, all on the same day. Including my children, there were five young families in our home for lunch and supper.  Most noticeable to my inner sociologist were the gender roles and parenting patterns that emerged. The five young dads in the 25-to-35 year age range seemed to be just as involved in the child minding and nurturing as the moms. There seemed to be an interchangeable role between the parents. One of them would detach from the “adult” conversation to focus on the child’s needs and engage in childfocussed play. When it came to the tough job of diaper changes or dealing with boo boos, the dads seemed to be the ones stepping in. As much as I think of myself as a feminist, believing in the equality of rights and opportunities of women and men, I wasn’t raised with this model and am embarrassed to say, didn’t practice it with my own

children. In fact, our home was fairly conventional with my wife having the lion’s share of responsibility for the children.  Despite the number of people packed into our house for this Christmas gathering, there were no screaming or crying children, no parents barking commands, no signs of exasperated parents attempting to socialize and mind children at the same time. There was a fluidity about it that seemed remarkably easy. I witnessed dads who could anticipate and respond gently to their child’s needs. The dads were calm and equally as involved as the moms. This is a long way from the 1950s and the fixed gender roles of dads as breadwinners only. It is equally a long way from the “children should be seen and not heard” philosophy of the last century.   These children are growing up in enriched emotional environments where their needs are being met in ways that provide a more secure foundation for their sense of selfworth and emotional well-being. They are also witnessing gender Continued: PERSPECTIVES/ p16

Health PERSPECTIVES from page 14 equality, so I suspect as they grow they will consider it normal, not new. What we know from child psychology is that providing a secure base in early childhood acts as inoculation against mental health problems later in life. It bodes well for the future.  A limitation, of course, was that

my little sample was of middle income, two-parent families that don’t have the challenges faced by those in poverty and/or lone parenting. However, they and others like them are a bright spot in the development of the next generation.  Dr Robert Lees, R.Psych is the

Black Press A new poll has found most B.C. residents didn’t get the flu shot this season despite a late scramble for vaccinations. The Ipsos Reid online poll found 42 per cent of respondents got a flu vaccination. That climbed to 61 per cent among those aged 55 and up, while just 29 per cent aged 18 to 34 got immunized. The poll found Metro Vancouverites were somewhat more likely to be immunized (45 per cent) and immunization rates rose in line with household income. Of those who did not get the flu shot, 57 per cent said potential side effects can cause more problems than getting the flu. Sixtyeight per cent of those who actually got the flu shot disagreed

with that statement. Fifty-nine per cent of all respondents said the benefits of the flu vaccine outweigh the risks, while 24 per cent disagreed. Ipsos Reid pollsters said access appears to be a non-issue as a large majority said it’s easy and convenient to get a flu shot if you want it. The poll of 803 B.C. residents in mid-January is considered accurate to within 3.9 per cent. Public health officials say

nearly 1.4 million B.C. residents have been vaccinated against the flu since October. The unprecedented demand has led to shortages of vaccine, although more supply is arriving this month. Health authorities had warned earlier this month that the dominant H1N1 flu virus circulating was causing severe illness and intensive care unit hospitalizations among younger patients than usual.

Learn about changes in ALR Ever wondered about the state of the Fraser Valley’s Agricultural Land Reserve today versus yesterday? Dr. Lenore Newman often does. On Feb. 5, Dr. Lenore Newman, University of the Fraser Valley Canada chair in food security and the environment, will present her ongoing research of the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) in B.C. at the Abbotsford campus. For 40 years, the ALR has shaped land use in British Columbia. This talk will address

how the ALR has changed over the last four decades, and how it continues to underpin both the local food movement and our industrial agricultural industry. For the past year, Dr. Newman and post-doctoral scholar Dr. Denver Nixon have been examining the ALR, and will report on issues such as overall land use, fragmentation, subdivision, and the impact of non-farm residential uses of ALR lands. Dr. Newman will address emerging edge issues, and explore potential futures for this critical element of our land-

scape. Using data drawn from earlier exploration of the local food movement. She will also argue that Vancouver’s robust culinary culture depends on farming that takes place on the rural/urban fringe. Lessons from the ALR will be presented as a model that could work well elsewhere. Future research needed to maintain a healthy ALR for centuries to come will also be discussed. The lecture is on Feb. 5 at 4 p.m. in the lecture theatre, room B101.

Barbara White – Queenie to some – was beyond excited to be chosen as this year’s honoree for the Walk for Memories. With a red-painted smile brightening her face, she listed off as many joyous adjectives she could think of to express just how she felt: Wonderful. Great. Proud. Honoured. She’d love to keep the memory forever, but sadly realizes there’s a likely chance that it too may fade. White has Alzheimer’s. She was diagnosed with the first stage two and a half years ago. Her symptoms were not uncommon: forgetting people’s names, missing appointments, repeating things, moodiness. But White, 71, who wasn’t educated in Alzheimer’s, and who already had fibromyalgia, a chronic disorder that causes fatigue and muscle pain, thought it was just the “fibromyalgia fog.” Others cracked it up as old age. But when a fellow Red Hatter abrasively called out her forgetfulness, asking her why she kept repeating things, what was wrong with her brain, White sought the help of her doctor. “He tested me… asked me a whole bunch of questions,” she said. “He then told me I had the first stage of Alzheimer’s “I didn’t even know what Alzheimer’s was.” Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes loss of memory, judgement and reasoning, as well as changes in behaviour and mood. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks like going to the washroom, bathing and feeding. In B.C., more than 70,000 are affected by dementia. White was not ready for the disease to take over. Immediately she sought out local support groups, and began researching the disease on the Internet. Her husband, Wayne, also joined a support group for caregivers. “When people look at me, they don’t think anything is wrong with

me,” said White. And then she speaks. It’s not the symptoms of Alzheimer’s that clue them in, it’s her words, her barefaced advocacy for the disease. Months into having it, White became a spokesperson for the local Alzheimer’s chapter, she regularly speaks at seniors’ homes, and has even spoken to students at the University of the Fraser Valley who are going into caregiving careers. “It’s something I am working so hard to try and get a cure for, to try and get enough monies for research,” she said. “There’s not enough money to get a cure for this.” As soon as White was diagnosed, her doctor prescribed the Exelon patch, a fairly new skincare treatment, that releases medication directly through the skin continuously for 24 hours, and that may improve overall function and cognition. White believes it’s the patch that has stayed her Alzheimer’s to Stage 1. “My patch has slowed the progression of my Alzheimer’s,” she said. But still, it’s not enough. White has endured more stresses and hardships in her life than most, but through it all, her easy smile and quick sense of humour has been a gateway for happiness. She has four children, two stepchildren, and 10 grandchildren. She holds her time with them dear, and doesn’t want to lose those precious memories. “I really just have to take it day by day and keep doing the things I love,” she said. This Sunday, White will be walking proud in the Investors Group Walk for Memories. Joining her will be friends from the Red Hat Society and friends from the fibromyalgia support group, and friends from the Alzheimer’s support group – and all others she’s helped brighten the lives of along the way. The Investors Group Walk for Memories is Sunday, Jan. 26 at the Landing Sports Centre from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Registration is at 1 p.m. For more information call 604-7024603.

What I don’t always talk about is the great on-road driving capabilities. The Toyota 4Runner hugs the road and the bucket seats hug you. It is very comfortable to drive and you feel safe driving it. The suspension and shocks give you a firm ride but not enough to give you that washboard effect. Vision while driving is superb, with little to no blind spots.

It will replace the TL and the TSX and will be the design leader as new models are revealed during the next few years. TLX customers will be able to choose from two-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations; two high-performance, highly fuel-efficient new engines – 2.4-litre in-line four and 3.5-litre V6; two new advanced transmissions; and the next generation Acura SuperHandling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) dynamic performance and handling technologies.

all-new 7th generation Corvette Stingray was unveiled last year in Detroit and it won the North American Car of the Year award, exactly a year after it debuted. This year it was all about Z06, featuring a 625hp allnew supercharged engine with an all-new eight speed automatic transmission and for the first time the roof panel is removable for open air driving. Using the same all-aluminum platform as the regular Stingray, this new car is lower, with bigger tires and brakes, more cooling inlets and in initial

The motor city was abuzz at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. The car industry is roaring back in the US and we have record sales in Canada, so there are many new products for all segments of the market. Corvette Z06 The performance Corvette Z06 got its name back in the 1960s when customers could order a high performance “Z06� package that delivered a track-ready Corvette. Today Chevrolet is still delivering track-ready Corvettes, now they come with the Z06 name. The

testing, is the fastest Corvette Chevrolet ever made. The Z06 will be available in the early part of 2015. Ford F-150 Any new F-150 is a huge deal for Ford as it is the number one selling truck in Canada for the past 48 years and the best selling vehicle overall. The big news is that the all-new F-150 is now constructed using lighter high-tensile steel in the chassis, and high strength aluminum alloys in the body, mostly the trucks box. This combination contributes to a 318-kilogram reduction in weight, helping to make the truck stronger and much more fuel-efficient. There will be four engines available from a base 3.5L V6 to a 5.0L V8 and two Ecoboost engines, a 2.7L and 3.5L V6. Ford did not have specific fuel economy numbers but there will be a significant improvement over the existing truck. Other improvements include an improved tailgate stepladder that folds away easier and power locking and folding tailgate. The New 2015 F-150 will be available later this year. Chrysler 200 Some might remember the Chrysler Sebring sedan. That nameplate was retired and rebadged as the Chrysler 200. This all-new Chrysler 200 is light years away from that old platform. In fact, it uses the same Alfa Romeo platform found under the Dodge Dart and impressive Jeep Cherokee. The strong points of this platform are excellent on-road manners with a quiet interior and superb handling. There will be a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with 184hp or the optional 290hp 3.6L engine found in many other Chrysler products. The Chrysler 200 will have front wheel drive or optional all wheel drive, derived from the same system used in the Jeep Cherokee. This will provide Chrysler with a unique offering as most other manufacturers stick with two-wheel drive. The interior features the Uconnect computer interface system and is covered in soft-touch materials and supportive seats. Look for the all-new Chrysler 200 to arrive in late spring and starts at $22,495.

Porsche 911 Targa One car that pulled big crowds was the new Porsche 911 Targa. We all know what a Porsche 911 looks like; they have been modifying the same basic shape for over 50 years. What this new Targa has is a retractable roof system that will stop traffic. At the push of a button the whole rear of the car releases and the centre convertible roof is stored underneath, then the rear section is again attached. The back panel incorporates a wrap around rear window, making a distinctive statement while keeping the overall design of the car intact. Previous Targa models had either a removable centre panel of a glorified, oversized sunroof, this new model is the best of both. Starting at $115,900, all Targa models will come with AWD and will arrive this spring. Mercedes Benz C-Class The C-Class is so important to Mercedes brand in North America that they held the world debut of the C-Class here, plus it is their number one selling car. Arriving later this spring and summer, this new compact sedan is a longer and wider and uses a combination of high-tensile steel and aluminum components to shed 100kg for a 20 percent reduction in fuel economy. An all-new turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder is the base engine with 235hp. The optional 328hp 3.0L V6 is the other power plant initially. The highlight is the more dynamic looking exterior and superb interior. The dash is stunning, featuring a touch screen iPod type screen mounted on the back. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

Lots of ‘ooh-aah, what a car’ at Detroit auto show

’’

Detroit - Flocks of international journalists roamed the floors of COBO Hall in downtown Detroit on the occasion of the 25th annual North American International Auto Show. With a plethora of automotive goodness under one roof, it’s hard to narrow down which ones to focus on. After all, there are concepts, production vehicles and much more. And there are a lot of them. To kick things off on my list, let’s start with some concepts. Ah, MINIs. For over a decade, they have been romping the streets and causing

Detroit is back a 2.0-litre, turbocharged inline four-cylinder, generating 272 horses, and a 3.6-litre V6, 321 hp is also available. Interesting little feature: because coupes typically have large, long doors, the reach behind the shoulder to grab the seatbelt can be a stretch. The ATS Coupe has motorized carriers to “hand” the seatbelt to the driver and front passenger upon entry. The Toyota FT-1 coupe concept caused a stir among those hungering for a return to the days of the Toyota Celica/ Supra. Company officials were coy about whether it will go into production but judging by the media attention it will. The Volkswagen Beetle Dune has a rugged off-road look, largely due to the raising of the body by 50 mm and the addition of 19-inch wheels with large tires. Just like the old days, the new Beetle features a rearmounted ski-rack. The concept is actually a return to an idea from January 2000, when VW showed the New Beetle Dune concept in Los Angeles. That was a flight fancy, this concept is built on the current production model and the German manufacturer is looking for the nod to proceed from Beetle buyers. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

The GT4 Stinger provides a possible and highly provocative glimpse into Kia’s future.

our hands on them. Oh, and there’s an allotment of 290 horsepower, too. Yum. Speaking of cars with four cylinders and all-wheel drive, the Golf R has some competition lined up in the form of the Subaru WRX STI. With a 305 horsepower horizontally-opposed turbocharged boxer engine, multidifferential controllable all-wheel-drive system, and a six-speed gearbox, those looking to take shortcuts off the beaten path can do it. And do it in style. alexandra.straub@ drivewaybc.ca

few hundred were allocated for Canada. But I’m hoping such is not the case with the upcoming 2015 Golf R. Making its debut at the show, you can liken it to a donut. A donut that is fat free, calorie free and has sprinkles on top. Yes, it’s just that delicious. The all-wheel drive 5-door has plenty of appeal. But with the option of outfitting it with a 6-speed DSG with paddle shifters (it was previously only available with a 6-speed manual,) it might just reach out to a few more takers. That’s if we can get

horses. Included is an allnew direct-injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine producing 130 horsepower and 114 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s an increase of 13 horsepower and 8 lb.-ft. of torque in comparison to the outgoing engine. The VW Golf R is no stranger to Canadians. It has been sold here in the Great White North for the last couple of years. But they’re kind of like the tooth fairy. You hear about them, but you rarely see them. Why? Because they were sold in limited quantities. Meaning only a

ing vehicle in Canada. And it’s all new for 2015. Up front, the Fit sports a new grille and headlight design. Around back, there are rear reflectors and LED taillights run along the hatch with a chrome tailgate garnish and rear diffuser. Furthermore, Honda keep’s their exclusive Magic Seat, which offer multiple configurable seating positions. Translation, the Fit provides an unrivaled 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the second row seats are folded flat. It also gets a bump in

powerplant. The Korean carmaker mentions that there are no pending plans to bring this particular car to market, however, Kia has a history of delivering production vehicles that bear a strong resemblance to the concept that preceded them, and the GT4 Stinger provides a possible and highly provocative glimpse into Kia’s future. And if it’s the future we’re after, it looks good. Moving from fantasy to fiction, we have the Honda Fit. It’s a spectacular little car and has been a popular sell-

people to smile, whether driving them, sitting in them or watching them. At the NAIAS, the masses were introduced to the MINI John Cooper Works Concept. Not a whole heck of a lot of information was released but you can bet your bottom dollar that it’ll be fast. There are large air inlets, 18-inch wheels and the unmistakable MINI silhouette and face. It’s built as much for the road as it is the track. Did I mention it’ll be fast? Until the production vehicle is produced, we will just have to be patient and wait for pricing, specs and all the fun stuff. Kia certainly drew the crowds when it came to their GT4 Stinger Concept. According to Kia, the “GT4 Stinger was conceived by the “gearheads” in Kia’s Irvine, Calif., design studio, birthplace of iconic concept vehicles such as the Track’ster and Cross G.” The rear-wheel drive, 2+2 sports car, had a powerful stage presence. And also packs a healthy dose of 315 horsepower from a turbocharged, 4-cylinder

This Nationwide annual event encourages adults and children to spend at least 15 minutes a day to enjoy reading and learning activities together as a family. Engaging children in learning activities is crucial to a child’s development. By sitting and reading with a child at any age, we can develop attachment, instill the love of reading, and bolster independent thinking. ABC Life Literacy Canada has a long list of fun ideas of how you can put 15 minutes of literacy fun into your family’s day, including surfing the internet together to learn about an interesting topic, to writing a joke book together or making an origami boat to see if it will float. All of these activities promote learning and connection. The CCS Family Literacy Programs are an excellent example of how Chilliwack supports family literacy throughout the year, by supporting adults wanting to further their education not only for themselves, but for the love of lifelong learning for their entire family.   For more ideas on what you can do for 15 minutes of fun, go to www.decoda.ca or www.abclifeliteracy.ca

Make hiking a mountain your goal for 2014 As we harken in a new year, and the month of January has had time to settle in upon us, perhaps it is time to elevate your goals. If it has been your dream to climb a mountain and you have always wanted to stand on the top of a peak like Mt. Cheam, than this is the year to make this goal a reality. As with any large goal it will certainly take some work to see it become reality and Sam I will do my best to help you through WADDINGTON the steps that will get you where you want to be. To begin; You will want to ensure that you set aside a day a week, or a day every two weeks to get out on the trails. There is no training substitute for spending time in the mountains to build your competency for even larger backcountry objectives. You will notice your footwork getting better, your cardiovascular capability increasing and you will also be building the strength and endurance to be able to hike for hours, once you get into this routine. You will need to have at least adequate equipment to ensure your safety and enjoyment is not compromised while training. Equipment is not the most impor-

tant part of getting out in nature, however it does have a role to play. Footwear that has good traction and high ankle support, and basic waterproofing will be your most valued piece of gear as trails can be wet and slippery at times. Many people have moved towards using “trekking poles”, basically height-adjustable ski poles, for better balance, downhill control, and as a bonus they turn hiking into a full body workout. It is perhaps at this point that you are thinking to yourself that training is not what you feel like doing in 2014, but rather you are more inclined towards a comfortable chair and a good book. To this I would say that that is where hiking strikes the most beautiful of balances. I find I can push myself to total exhaustion and fatigue on the trails while hiking, not because I am a fitness nut, but rather because of a desire to see what is around the next bend In the trail. Spending time in the forest and up in the alpine is truly life giving and it does not feel like training at all, and thus hiking is fitness made easy! I will warn you however that hiking and climbing on beautiful mountains does have a way of becoming an addiction for many people. The thrill of a new summit, and the diverse beauty that each and every kilometer of backcountry trail has to offer, will never loose its appeal.

The view from Mount Cheam is worth the climb. Chilliwack and her surrounds, has trails for every level of hiker, making this a great place to slowly increase your ability.

Chilliwack and her surrounds, has trails for every level of hiker, making this a great place to slowly increase your ability. If the Rotary Trail along the Vedder River gets you working up a sweat, then perhaps set your sights on the beautiful locals of Teapot Hill and Lindeman Lake as your next objectives. If you are an annual

Cheam hiker and you are looking for another challenge, then give Radium lake trail, or Pierce Lake Trail a go to get your heart rate pumping and for amazing views over the Chilliwack River Valley Alpine. Grab a free Chilliwack Trails Map, tell a friend or family member where you are going, and get

yourself into the backcountry and elevate your fitness in 2014. “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” – Abraham Lincoln Sam Waddington is owner of Mt.

academic through her school years, she admitted that her rudder wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully in the water when it came to long range career goals. Realizing her need to mature and develop self confidence, she ended up joining the military. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This experience made me recognize my own strength. When I started off, there were 45 in my platoon; 14 were women. When we finished, there were 22 left and only four of them were women. I was only in for two years; long enough for an honourable discharge. However, at least it was something that I completed and the experience was very valuable and what I needed at the time,â&#x20AC;? she explained with a smile. After leaving the army, Lori started working at an Au Coton Clothing store and remained in the retail industry for four years. She decided to major in Advertising Feature

THE COMIC STRIPPERS... Lunging and laughing their way onto the main stage at the Cultural Centre on January 31, 2014 are The Comic Strippers! The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first fictitious stripper troupe that cares more about being funny than sexy, but that still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop them from trying. Featuring some of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most loved improv comedians, including David Milchard of the Youtube sensation â&#x20AC;&#x153;Convos with my 2 year oldâ&#x20AC;?, Roman Danylo and more, The Comic Strippers are more about the jokes than the jockstraps, and are guaranteed to have the entire audience howling with laughter with this fantastic unscripted show. Swapping tiny pink shirts for tight black pants (and not much else), David Milchard will be front and centre when The Comic Strippers come to Chilliwack. After playing co-star Matthew Clarkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter in their hilariously awkward and slightly unsettling reconstructions of Matthewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversations with his two year old daughter Coco, David has earned internet stardom from his hysterically creepy one-liners and by showcasing just how surreal kids can be (especially when played by a full grown manâ&#x20AC;Ś) Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique approach to humour has taken him from a 13 year background in improv, film acting and directing, to web fame with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Convosâ&#x20AC;?: a show that landed him a place on Youtubeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous Year in Review production for 2013 and took Clarke and himself (as Coco of course) to Disneyland for the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Release Your Disney-Sideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign. Of getting to release his inner-child in perhaps the best place to do so on earth, David said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;being dressed as Coco and skipping around in that environment was super fun, and people were stopping us all the time to say they

loved the showâ&#x20AC;?, so you can be sure to expect an unrestrained and ridiculous performance when David comes to Chilliwack with The Comic Strippers. Chip Munk, (as David is known in the fake male stripper universe), will be joined by fellow comedians, the awardwinning Roman Danylo, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Health Nutzâ&#x20AC;? star Ken Lawson, improv comedy vet Chris Cassilan, The Vancouver TheatreSports League Artistic Associate Director Pearce Visser, and TV actor Michael Teigen to complete the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Chipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of The Comic Strippers. David said that working with such a varied and talented bunch of comedians in this improvised format means that no show is ever the same, and with their habit of interacting with (and gyrating on) the audience and breaking into unashamedly unsexy dance in the middle of skits, that anything can happen when the Chipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get under the spotlight! â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show is super fun, super ridiculous, and very high-energy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what mood youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a hilarious spectacle that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible not to laughâ&#x20AC;? says David. With what they refer to as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Comedy Bodiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; combined the talents of these amazing improv comedians, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inclined to believe him!

Although Roman guarantees the show to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;squeaky cleanâ&#x20AC;? it is intended for an 18+ audience. David said that he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to perform in Chilliwack, and cheekily suggests that those enticed by this rib-tickling night of the not-so-erotic should â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prepare for the ridiculousâ&#x20AC;Ś and my nipplesâ&#x20AC;?, so come along to the Cultural Centre on January 31 to indulge in what may prove to be the funniest night of 2014! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss out on the opportunity to be entertained by these phenomenal comedians this January. Call the Centre Box Office at 604-391-SHOW(7469) or visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca and get your tickets early for this hilarious show.

commerce and marketing at the University of Saskatchewan and although she was a bright and hard-working young woman, she doubted her ability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then I met Ronnie. He was a lovely person and we even dated for awhile. He helped me to believe in myself and he convinced me that I was worth so much more. He was such a positive influence in my life and to this day, I am so thankful to him,â&#x20AC;? she said determinedly. Between her first and second year of university, Lori did something so spontaneous that it was entirely out of character for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had just received my first credit card with a limit of $1,000. I happened to walk by a sandwich board at the university promoting a return trip to London and out of nowhere; I decided to buy a ticket,â&#x20AC;? she grinned. As the plane touched down, she could see the rain beating down and everything appeared dull and grey. The dreariness somehow matched her inner mood. At the hostel where she was staying, she overheard three visitors from Quebec talking about Scotland. Although Lori was not entirely sure of where it was located, she resolved to go there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I boarded a train and was

immediately struck by the attendantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful accent. When I arrived in Scotland, the sun was shining and everything around me was so green and crisp. This was a huge contrast to what I had left Ana behind MACEDO in London and it was beautiful. It started to rain the following day but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter because my first impression had set such a positive tone,â&#x20AC;? she said, smiling. Lori settled in quite nicely. She rented a flat and began working in a pub; her warm and inviting personality pleasing the locals. After her fourmonth stint was over, she was heartbroken at the thought of leaving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had learned to love what had become my temporary home. I also developed a great appreciation for my own life. I must admit that if I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t purchased a return ticket, I probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have returned to Canada,â&#x20AC;? she reflected. After returning, she delved into her studies once again but admittedly, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been bitten by the travel bug. Continued: ANA/ p35

Once Lori graduated from university, she began working for Xerox as an account manager. “I enjoyed the money and they had a wonderful, dynamic staff. I was good at the job but it didn’t give me any satisfaction.” She did end up meeting her husband, Dave, at Xerox and the couple has two lovely daughters; Sarah and Piper.

my family,” she indicated. Lori recognized that while photography is a beautiful art form, there is a science to it as well. “I enrolled at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts to learn all that I could.” She worked extremely hard for 13 months, leaving home by 5:30 in the morning each day and not returning until 7 in the evening. After all of the sacrifice, commitment and hard work, Lori received an honours diploma in Professional Digital Photography. “Since then, I’ve followed my passion wherever it has led me and I always find great joy in my work. Whether it’s capturing people at the zenith of their life, a beautiful landscape scene or a corporate head shot, I am constantly mystified by the way that photography transforms what is seemingly ordinary into the extraordinary!” she enthused.

Community Leaving cancer in the dust, one workout at a time

Presented by

2014

Thankful for the care she received as a breast cancer patient, Chilliwack local, Debra Haas, felt a need to do something more,

to ensure that no one else has to go through the fear, pain and discomfort that cancer brings, as she did. In response, Haas is par-

ticipating in the BC Cancer Foundation’s Workout to Conquer Cancer event happening on March 8 at the Richmond Olympic

Oval. For Haas, participation in the event is a means to bringing awareness and support to the life-saving cancer research at the BC Cancer Agency, benefiting communities through the province. As one of the top fundraisers, Debra Haas is rallying the Chilliwack community to join her at Workout to Conquer Cancer “You find out how much more you’re able to give than you ever thought possible, the energy all around will

be amazing and we’re all helping to find a cure for a disease that impacts so many!” says Haas. On March 8 Debra Haas and her team “Bi Bye Cancer” will arrive at the Richmond Olympic Oval ready to workout, have fun and make a difference in the lives of the over 24,000 British Columbians who will be diagnosed with cancer this year.

Minor hockey night as Chiefs host Warriors E Entertaining te tai i g lloss oss o

The Chilliwack Chiefs hope a raucous Sunday night crowd will help them get back on track. Losers of five straight heading into weekend action in Langley and home to Kelowna, the Chiefs are giving free tickets to minor hockey players who show up wearing a jersey. There’s nothing like a large group of kids to energize a place, and the Chiefs need all the energy they can get. Their troubles against Langley are well documented. The Mainland division leading Rivermen (28-12-1-5) have beaten the Chiefs in all but one meeting his year. The Warriors are an unfamiliar foe, coming in for a 5 p.m. Sunday start. Kelowna is 26-12-22 but Chilliwack won the only prior meeting between the two teams. Spencer Tremblay stopped 58 of 61 Warrior shots on Nov. 22 as his Chiefs won 6-3. Ex-Chief Austin Plevy had a pair of goals in that win. See bchl.ca

They kept their foot on the gas pedal and gave the fans a good show, writes Jacob Bestebroer

Powell River rising rapidly in national rankings The Powell River Kings have rocketed up the latest Canadian Junior Hockey League rankings, slotting in at No. 8. That’s up six spots from last week, even though the Kings (29-10-2-2) suffered a 2-1 upset loss on the road against Cowichan Valley (1726-1-1) Sunday afternoon.

Powell River’s Island division rival, the Victoria Grizzlies (28-11-3-2), drop two spots from No. 8 to No. 10. After earning honourable mention status last week, the Langley Rivermen (28-12-1-5) climb into the top 20, locking down the 18th spot. Notably absent from the list

is Penticton. The mighty Vees (27-11-2-4) have lost three in a row to West Kelowna (2-1), Merritt (2-1) and Salmon Arm (3-2 in overtime). Their .682 win percentage is still second best in the league behind the Kings (.721). The CJHL rankings encom-

pass the 10 junior A leagues across Canada, taking into account strength of schedule, winning percentage, win-loss record, total points accumulated, goals-for versus goalsagainst ratio and several other factors. Get the full rankings at cjhlhockey.com

Three courses join forces for Fraser Valley Open Course and The Falls Golf Club on the Fraser Valley Open. The 54 hole tourney will welcome 48 pros and 144 amateurs for three days of

event. Registration for the Fraser Valley Open will open Feb. 15-16 at the Vancouver Golf Show, being held at the Pacific National Exhibition grounds.

to Coquitlam in goals scored per game. Surprisingly theirr power play is middle of the pack, tied with the Chiefs at 18.32 per cent, but it’s a fun power play to watch as they have a numberr of designed plays theyy throw at their opposition. They’ve moved into second place in the Interior division, trailing only the Penticton Vees. The two rounds off playoffs in the Interiorr Division are going to be awesome with two very good teams being knocked out early. Speaking of the playoffs, the Chiefs are now 14 points out off a playoff spot with 13 games left. You don’t need to be a math whiz to figure out that making the playoffs will be veryy difficult. The team they are chasing are the Surrey Eagles. Both the Chiefs and Eagles are 3-6-0-1 in their last 10 games. The good news is that four of the Chiefs remaining games are against the Eagles. It’s likely that the Chiefs would not only need to win all four of those games but they would need to win them in regulation time. Sunday’s game, the last Sunday home game of the season forr the Chiefs is a 5 p.m. start. Fans are invited to join the team on the ice for a skate following the game. jb@c jb@chilliwackchiefs.net ac c e s et

I’m sure most of the people in attendance left disappointed but I thought the Chilliwack Chiefs’ 6-3 loss to the Coquitlam Express last Saturday was enjoyable to watch. I doubt either team’s coaching staff would agree with me, as there was little attention paid to defense by either team, but in today’s hockey that’s a breath of fresh air. After A fter a wide open first period I thought the teams would clamp down. But no, they kept their foot on the gas pedal and gave the fans a good show. It was nice to see newly acquired Mason Boh get three grade A scoring chances. He didn’t score on them but he showed smarts in getting himself in position to get a chance. Going into that game the Chiefs had been out-shot in 17 straight games. So it was w as nice to see them put 39 shots on the opposition goaltender and only allow 32. No, shots on goal are not always the indicator of which team played better, but it is an area in which the Chiefs have struggled lately so that was a nice change. With the West Kelowna Warriors in town Sunday we may see the same style of game again. The Warriors are a good team, and the hottest in the BCHL right now. They are 8-1-1-0 in their last 10 and are second only

MCPHEE

Donald Robert

Don McPhee passed away in his home on Jan. 19, 2014. He was in his 90th year of life. Born on Oct. 20, 1924 in Saskatoon, Sask, he spent most of his life in Chilliwack next door to the family hog farm, Cherry Lynn Farms, on Broadway Street where he spent his career. He was predeceased by his loving wife Mildred in Nov. of 2005. Together, they had lived in their home since their marriage in 1961. Now he is in the loving arms of his Lord and with family members by whom he was also pre-deceased: father, John Robert McPhee; mother, May McPhee (nee Dockrill); step-mother, Marion McPhee (nee Sleightholm); sister Helen (John) McQuinn; parents-in-law, Olga & Roy Bresch; brothers & sisters-in-law Ted (Jeanie) Bresch; Olive (Albert) Wildeman; Helmut Riemer; and niece, Kathy Riemer. He is survived by his loving half-brother, Lindsay (Jan) McPhee; half-sister, Doreen Single; and sister–inlaw, Lyla Riemer; and many nieces and nephews. Don will be remembered by his friends from First Baptist Church, Chilliwack, where he and Mildred married, worshipped, and participated in the 2nd Mile Group and by friends from Broadway Church, Chilliwack where he attended for the past 22 years. As a young man, Don, a gun enthusiast, belonged to the Chilliwack Rod and Gun Club, Fish and Game Club, and Ducks Unlimited. He & Mildred enjoyed going on camping excursions to visit family and to take pictures of the wildlife and ¾owers of N. America. They met at Chilliwack Camera Club and both were lifelong members. Known nationally for their wonderful photographs printed in books and calendars, they won countless awards for their marvelous images. This shared interest was especially meaningful. They also belonged to the Chilliwack Field Naturalists & the Chilliwack Museum & Historical Society. After his wife’s passing, Don continued to be hospitable and it was common to ½nd that he had baked a cake for his company or had organized an evening of games. The memory of the McPhee couple and their warm welcome and friendship are treasured by friends – both young and old. A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm, on Mon, Jan. 27, 2014, Chapel of Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave., Chilliwack. Rev. Ian Grant of½ciating.

We sadly share the passing of our dearly loved husband, father, grandfather and greatgrandfather. Arnold departed peacefully in Chilliwack, BC on January 15, with his loving wife, Vera, at his side. Arnold is pre-deceased by his eldest son Stuart (2001) and is survived by his wife Vera, his children Lloyd (Teresa), Bruce (Marg), Cheryl (Chris), Janet, and Diane (Andreas), daughter-in-law (Donna), grandchildren Meagan, Chelsea, Kelly, Cody, John and great-grandchildren Kenzie and Kobe, and brother Blaine. Arnold was born and grew up in Barrhead, AB, which was also where he and Vera met, married and began their 61-year journey together. Arnold’s life-long career in the oil and gas industry took the family to various locations across western Canada including a 16-year stretch in Fort Nelson BC, where he managed one of the largest natural gas processing plants in the world. From there, Arnold and Vera moved to the lower mainland and eventually settled in Chilliwack. When he wasn’t tearing up the Fraser Valley golf courses and walking trails, he and Vera were likely to be en route to connect with family and long-time friends with the RV in tow. Arnold’s first love, however, was spending time with Vera and their gang. We will always cherish the memories of our many family reunions and celebrations that meant so much to Dad. Our sincere thanks go out to the Chilliwack General Hospital staff for the kindness and care extended to Arnold and his family during his final days. A private family service will be held in the spring to celebrate Arnold’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of British Columbia.

Webb, Arnold Edward

Registered Resident Care Aides

June 29, 1933 – January 21, 2014 Peter Wall passed peacefully into the presence of his Lord and Saviour on January 21, 2014 after a brief illness with pancreatic cancer. Dad was born in a log cabin on a farm in La Glace, Alberta. He spent the first 14 years of his life here. It’s the setting of many mischievous and happy stories he’s told over the years. The family moved to a chicken and dairy farm on Rose Island in Chilliwack December 1947, and, at the age of 14, Dad started dairying. In the early years on the farm, he developed a passion for animal husbandry and had a minor veterinary practice for many years. He was known as Dr. Wall to those who called him for help with their livestock. Dad was a meticulous dairyman who was equally accomplished in equipment maintenance and repair. He had an engineering mind for building using his love for welding to craft and repair implements and restore tractors. In the early 1950’s, he attended Columbia Bible School and was baptized in his late teens. Dad didn’t talk about his faith as much as he lived it through his hospitable and generous spirit. Shortly after, he met the love of his life in Selma Klassen. Their lifelong partnership began on April 2, 1956. A family soon followed with Marjorie joining the family in 1959, Audrey in 1960, Les in 1964 and John in 1973. Through his entrepreneurial spirit, he expanded farming into growing corn and selling by the bakers dozen; first for markets in Vancouver, then locally out of his red International pickup truck, and finally, in retirement, at Granville Island Market. Dad thoroughly enjoyed making people laugh and have some fun. Many of his friends can recall a tale, joke, or prank from their times with him. For us kids, this meant Dad built stuff for our enjoyment. He was instrumental in the creations of “Rose Pond” by building two rafts which attracted kids from all over our rural neighborhood. From snow piled into high mounds by his Farmall C tractor, he built an igloo big enough for five, and an iced sledding run off the machine shed. He used the same tractor pile dirt mounts for motorcycle jumps. Dad enjoyed many hobbies over the years. Hiking the local mountains in his 20’s, and motorcycling those same trails in his 40’s. He was an avid curler with the Dairyman’s League, and participated in antique ploughing as a member of Atchelitz Threshermen. His RV took him and mom to interior lakes to fish for trout – a real passion of his. In addition to fishing (and welding), he had a great love for taking pictures showing his slides at family gatherings. In the summer of 1992, Mom and Dad moved to their retirement home on Nelson Road in Rosedale. From here, they traveled to Europe, across Canada, for a time to Palm Desert with friends and annually to see the three children (and grandchildren) living in the states. Dad is predeceased by his parents, Peter and Katherina Wall, an infant sister, Tina, and his older brother, John. He is survived by his wife, Selma, of 58 years, Marjorie (Preston) Hofer, Audrey (Gregg) Waltner, Leslie (Jan), John (Karin), 10 grandchildren, six greatgrandchildren, six sisters, and many nieces and nephews. Dad lived his life well. He loved greatly and was loved. We will miss him always. A Viewing Time for family and friends will be held on Friday, January 24, 2014 from 7pm to 9pm at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave., Chilliwack with the Memorial Service on Saturday, January 25 at 2:00pm at Eden Mennonite Church, 46551 Chilliwack Central Road.

Geoff Spencer The following will be sold for $1500 plus all fees incurred by this action and owed to Total Automotive by Wednesday Feb 5, 2014. 1989 Chevy Cavalier VIN: 1G1JF31W4K7183459 Total Automotive 5580 Vedder Rd Chilliwack, BC

The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is renewing its approval under the Integrated Pest Management Act for activities, including the use of pesticides, involved in its Nuisance Mosquito Control Program. These activities are conducted under the guidance of a Pest Management Plan (PMP), which is being developed by the FVRD for the 20142019 mosquito seasons. The majority of nuisance mosquitoes in the FVRD breed along the banks of the Fraser River and its tributaries where seasonal flooding and seepage results in substantial mosquito breeding habitat particularly in years of high river levels. Standing waters within the FVRD that are prone to seasonal flooding will be treated between May – July using bacterial larvicides with the active ingredients Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti) or Bacillus sphaericus (Bsph). Both Bti (trade names Aquabac 200G, Vectobac 200G, or Vectobac 1200L) and Bsph (trade name Vectolex CG) are registered for use in Canada, are target specific to nuisance mosquito larvae, are non-toxic, and are environmentally safe. These proposed pesticides will be applied by either hand or by helicopter to mosquito larvae development sites on nonprivate lands or on owner-approved private lands throughout the FVRD. A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the PMP, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the address below within 30 days of the publication of this notice. Also, within 30 days, a person wishing to review the application or provide comments, may do so by contacting the person below. Stacey Barker Manager, Environmental Services Fraser Valley Regional District 45950 Cheam Avenue Chilliwack, BC V2P 1N6 1-800-528-0061 | mosquitoes@fvrd.bc.ca
