Chilliwack a heavenly match for film crew Recruiting

GPs for Chilliwack

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Program aimed at bolstering local ranks is finding success Katie Bartel The Progress

Film crews were on scene at St. Thomas Anglican Church on Tuesday shooting TV movie Match Made in Heaven. The cast and crew will be in Chilliwack until Friday.

Chilliwack is suddenly becoming a hot destination for family doctors. A new general practitioner (GP) recruitment group that was formed last fall has already brought in five new family physicians to Chilliwack, and has five more interested. A GP for Me is a joint program of the provincial government and Doctors of B.C. aimed at strengthening health care by helping residents obtain family physicians if they so desire. But first, there needs to be doctors. Fourteen per cent of British Columbians do not have a family physician; seven per cent in Chilliwack. Largely in part due to availability. In the Fraser East, approximately one in five doctors are not taking new patients, and another 64 per cent are only taking new patients under specific circumstances. The Chilliwack Division of Family Practice is working to change that. The organization has partnered with Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) to put Chilliwack’s best foot forward with prospective physicians. Doctors get the hospital tour from the division, and the city tour from CEPCO. They’re toured through residential neighbourhoods, are informed about local schools, and the various amenities the city has to offer. “They’re being shown what the community is actually like,” said Dr. Melanie Madill, lead physician with the initiative. “In the past, it’s been up to one or two individuals to pick up the ball … and now what we have is a whole community working together. “That makes a difference.”

Cameras are rolling for a made-for-TV movie being shot in downtown Chilliwack this week at the St. Thomas Anglican church. Bumpy Road Productions is filming Match Made in Heaven for the U.S. based Up Network at locations in downtown Chilliwack. “We’re quite excited about it,” said Rev. John Sovereign of St. Thomas Anglican. The film production crew was specifically looking for a church with a bell tower. “We’re happy to host this filming,” the reverend said, adding that the film script had to be cleared and approved by the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster. “It will give us some extra visibility.” A local casting session was held last week at Coast Chilliwack for a number of background actors and extras. “It will put Chilliwack back on the map for movies,” said Rev. Sovereign. “As long as we keep getting the odd movie shot here, it’s good thing for Chilliwack and the economy.” The last shoot was the TV show Eureka, where Wellington Avenue was transformed into a typical small town in the U.S. “After bringing the director through Chilliwack last week, he was surprised and happy with the look of the town,” said location manager Michael Farias from Bumpy Road Productions. They liked what Chilliwack had to offer in terms of visuals and locales, and will be shooting at some historic locations such as the St. Thomas Anglican, Royal Hotel, Chillibowl and more. “That was the beauty of it, there wasn’t a need to change much,” said Farias. Film shoots and production dollars are always good for the local economy, especially when crews opt for local accommodations and frequent local businesses. “This one is the first film shoot in Chilliwack this year,” said Netty Tam, film commission liaison with Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation. There’s been lots of interest expressed in shooting locally, “so hopefully 2014 will be a good year,” she added. The sci-fi show Eureka had a big impact when it made downtown Chilliwack the central shooting location for the show, and returned for several seasons. “That was very positive for Chilliwack and it’s good to see the trend continuing,” said Tam.

NDP takes aim at Multi Material BC recycling ‘failure’ Jeff Nagel Black Press The NDP is accusing the provincial government of handing over control of B.C.’s blue box recycling system to Toronto-based multinational executives who will be unaccountable while B.C. businesses and households pay higher costs. Opposition small business critic Lana Popham raised the issue of Multi Material BC in the Legislature Monday, calling on the province to change course before the agency’s new system for recycling packaging and printed paper takes effect May 19. “If government doesn’t take a step back, B.C.’s recycling system is going to end up in a giant dumpster,” Popham said. “The control of recycling should never have been outsourced to the large corporate interests based in

Ontario and abroad. This is a profound failure. This program needs to be paused and the entire concept reconsidered.” Popham’s comments follow the launch earlier this month of a campaign against MMBC by a coalition of business groups, including the newspaper industry, who say they can’t afford to pay high fees imposed under the new system. The provincially mandated system is designed to make generators of packaging and paper pay to collect and process it, but business critics contend it will be onerous due to high costs, paperwork and reporting obligations. “The Liberal government loves to claim they’re getting rid of red tape,” Popham said in an interview Monday. “So it’s quite ironic because MMBC is a Godzilla-sized red tape monster.” Although MMBC is registered as

a society, Popham called it a “dummy corporation” because two of its three directors are Toronto-based senior executives with Loblaws and Unilever, while the third is MMBC managing director Allan Langdon. Popham said the province should force MMBC to give B.C. stakeholders majority control. The Saanich South NDP MLA said the MMBC system will be “dangerously close to monopoly” resulting in less competition and innovation in recycling. She also said municipalities have been pressured into signing contracts with inadequate compensation for their costs, the threat of penalties for contamination and a gag clause. MMBC’s new recycling fees on businesses will be passed along to consumers through higher prices, Popham said, calling it a “hidden tax” that won’t be transparent to consumers.

Meanwhile, she says cities that the government says will save money are unlikely to reduce property taxes that households already pay for recycling. “The slogan for MMBC should probably be ‘Recycle once, but pay twice.’” In some cities where MMBC won’t provide services, such as Kamloops, residents will pay for nothing if retail prices rise broadly, Popham added. MMBC says it will take new types of containers and packaging not collected in B.C. before. But Popham noted glass will no longer be collected curbside in many cities and there’s little evidence the system will improve recycling rates overall. She said a smarter approach would have been to extend the beverage can deposit-refund system to more containers, such as milk cartons and laundry detergent jugs.

Liberal MLA Eric Foster (Vernon Monashee) responded in the Legislature, saying the province made changes to exempt most businesses from MMBC fees and paperwork if they earn less than $1 million in revenue, generate less than one tonne per year of packaging, or operate as a single outlet. “We’ve got all kinds of validation on this — chambers of commerce, local government, opportunities for local government to either continue the way they’re doing it or to have MMBC put their contractors in there to pick up,” said Foster, who serves on the government’s environment and land use committee. “MMBC came forward as an opportunity to change people’s way of doing business and to put the onus on the original producers of the waste product or the recyclable product to reduce.”

Chances Chilliwack cuts cheques for local charities Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

A flock of trumpeter swans gather in a field on Evans Road last week. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Conference of the birds in Chilliwack Jenna Hauck The Progress A huge flock of 200 swans that have been grazing in a field on Evans Road have been turning heads and drawing comments for the past few weeks in Chilliwack. Although they’re a new sight for many, says Wild Birds Unlimited store owner Cliff Jury, it’s actually common for them to winter in the Sumas flats, Chilliwack and Agassiz. Gord Gadsden of fraservalleybirding.com agrees. “We probably get the most of the wintering swans here in our area,” he says. Both of the birders figure the reason people are noticing them more this year

than previous years is the simple fact that more people travel along Evans Road than Chilliwack’s country roads. “They are here later than usual due to the cooler weather we had in February and March,” Jury adds. They’re mostly trumpeter swans, but there are always some tundra swans mixed in with them, he says. Gadsden drives by the field every day on his way to work. He noticed a day or two ago that the birds were gone. There was a tractor laying manure in the field which is probably what scared them off, he says. During the day, the swans squish though the mud honking at nearby people and grazing on grass and other food. What they really

love are the roots left behind in potato fields. Then in the evening, they leave the dining fields and check in at the gravel bars on the Fraser River where it’s safe for them to sleep. In the morning, they return to the fields. Their “numbers are stable” says Jury, adding that when the annual Christmas Bird Count was conducted there were about 1,000 swans in the area. The trumpeters spend their summers way up north in the territories. When lakes begin to freeze around October, they move south, travelling about as far as Mount Vernon in Washington State. At the end of winter, they do a U-turn and head back up north. photo@theprogress.com Twitter.com/PhotoJennalism

The 49 charity reps from the Knight Road Legacy Association will be picking up trailing payment cheques from Chances Chilliwack this week. Chances Chilliwack issued a cheque this month for $262,000, based on the facility’s performance in the first full year of operations. “The trailing payment was higher than we anticipated,” said Jerry Wernicke, president of the Knight Road Legacy Association. It works out to a $4,900 share for each of the charities, which are the former owners and operators of Chilliwack Bingo. “So going forward, things look very positive,” he said. The trailing payment cheques will be distributed to the member charities in Chilliwack on Saturday. “Knight Road Legacy Association would like to recognize Chances Chilliwack as a great community and business partner that values the importance of giving back,” said Wernicke. Great Canadian Gaming didn’t have a specific revenue target in mind, in terms of what they would be able to achieve in the first full year, which saw the first anniversary celebrated in November 2013. “We did think that hitting our thresholds would be likely,” said Chuck Keeling, spokesman for Great Canadian. They had an inkling the outcome would be positive, given the fact that Chilliwack Bingo’s revenues were among the highest in the province prior to the purchase by Canadian Gaming. “Looking back we’re very pleased with how everything’s gone in Chilliwack, including our liquor licence approval,” said Keeling.

Back-to-work law to cool Metro port strike BREA

Jobs Minister Shirley Bond introduced backto-work legislation Monday imposing a 90-day cooling off period in the Port Metro Vancouver truckers’ strike. The provincial legislation is expected to take effect Thursday, requiring the roughly 250 unionized truck drivers represented by

dispute and to get Port Metro Vancouver back to full capacity,” she said. Bond called the cooling-off legislation the “least interventionist” of the options available. The legislation provides stiff penalties for the union and its members if the strike continues. Employees can be fined up to $400 a day, while the union would be fined a minimum of $10,000 per day, while union officers would be fined at least $2,500 per day. Seven tr ucking firms are named as the employers of the unionized drivers – Aheer Transportation Ltd., For ward Transportation Ltd., Green Light Courier Ltd., Landway Transport, Port Transport Inc., Pr udential Transportation Ltd., and Sunlover Holdings Co. Ltd. The legislation directs the parties to resume good-faith bargaining within 72 hours of the legislation taking effect. “We believe that

a 90-day cooling-off period is a reasonable approach that will require the parties to return to the bargaining table,” Bond said. The province can extend the cooling off period by as much as 60 days. Unifor B.C. director Gavin McGarrigle said the province’s announcement last week of pending backto-work legislation undermined negotiations, because some companies then refused to engage in talks. He said some drivers have indicated they won’t obey the legislation and are prepared to go to jail.

The dispute centres on rate undercutting within the industry and long unpaid waits to load containers. NDP leader Adrian Dix told the legislature Monday that Port Metro Vancouver’s threat to pull licences from 1,100 independent owner-operators is an unacceptable tactic. The strike that began with non-union drivers Feb. 26 and broadened to unionized drivers March 10 is clogging the normal flow of goods via truck and has begun to result in layoffs in various tradedependent industries. – with files from Tom Fletcher

RCMP warn of Finding physicians good business: CEPCO telephone scam BUSINESS from Front

Common tax scam finding its way to Chilliwack, police say Chilliwack RCMP are warning residents of another telephone scam. This one has someone posing as a Revenue Canada agent looking for back taxes. According to police, the scammer convinces people their taxes are in arrears and that if payment isn’t made immediately they will be arrested. The fraudsters are asking that payment be made with Visa pre-pay cards. “This scam has been prevalent in several Lower Mainland communities in the past several weeks,� said RCMP Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “This is not a standard operating procedure for police and Canada Revenue Agency. The police do not deal with income tax issues.� The Canada Revenue Agency has very specific procedures to communicate with taxpayers. The public are encouraged to view these procedures at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/nwsrm/lrts/2014/ l140307-eng.html. Should you be the recipient of a suspected fraudulent call please report it to your local RCMP office and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center at info@antifraudcentre.ca .

For CEPCO, it’s a no brainer. A lot of people don’t connect health care with business, but it’s an important aspect, said Brian Coombes, CEPCO executive director. “When you look at economic development and

quality of life, knowing that you can find a family doctor and that you can get care in your own community, those are really important considerations when a business is looking at relocating to a community,� said Coombes. So when a prospective physician comes to town, CEPCO makes sure it’s “that friendly face for the com-

munity.� The Chilliwack Division of Family Practice has also made a cognizant effort to match prospective physicians to vacant practices that cater to their skill sets and interests. Although there hasn’t yet been a surge of new practices, the division believes it’s only a matter of time.

“We have not yet added to our net number beyond one or two, but we have a lot of people in the wings asking to come, or who have already made plans to come,� said Madill. The physician recruitment group is an offshoot of the A GP for Me initiative. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

ABSOLUTE STYLE

(community at large, Chilliwack Rotary Clubs, WWF, Cultus Lake Parks Board, FVRD, DFO, City of Chilliwack, Parr Road Green Depot). The City Parks and Recreation Department has recently released information about the usage of the Rotary trail along the Vedder River. To me the numbers were exciting and staggering. The trail sees an average monthly use of 18,000 persons in the summer and an equally impressive volume of 15,000 persons per months in the winter. These numbers make this trail network the most used in the city and it would seem that the people of Chilliwack are speaking with their feet on this topic. We love our trails and we want more of them. This project has put the spotlight on the secondary and tertiary waterways within our city, not only on the South side of town but also on the North side of the city as well. The FVWC had been conducting a study over

Woman suffers ‘near amputation’ of limb following rollover The cause of the incident is believed to be driver error, and charges are pending. Police are still investigating.

A 22-year-old woman was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital Thursday afternoon after the vehicle she was driving rolled over on Camp River Road in Chilliwack. The woman suffered a “near amputation” of her left arm as a result, said RCMP. Her injuries were serious, but non-life threatening. She was travelling eastbound around 3:30 p.m. with one passenger when the single-vehicle collision occurred east of Standeven Road. A helicopter landing site was set up in a field on Chapman Road, just east of the accident scene. The 17-year-old passenger of the vehicle did not suffer any injuries.

Rethink recycling plan

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

Growing alarm over a controversial new recycling plan in the province should give the province pause for thought. This week the NDP added its voice to a growing list of business groups, municipal governments and concerned individuals who say the new program will be costly, unwieldy and will ultimately fail to meet its noble objective of protecting the environment. This provincial push for a producer-pay recycling system is based on the concept of charging manufacturers whose products contribute to the waste stream, such as plastic packaging. But the soon to become government-mandated program is going to penalize some unfairly, including citizens. For instance, it will hit the newspaper industry with a 20 cent per kilogram cost for its “packaging” – the very paper the newspapers are printed on. That vested interest aside, it’s debatable whether the new system will achieve its environmental goals, while simultaneously driving up costs for consumers. Although the MMBC collection system may have benefits for communities that currently do not have adequate curbside recycling programs, it is not needed in Chilliwack, where the city has been achieving high rates of waste diversion through its own recycling collection. Maintaining Chilliwack’s current program is good for the environment, and residents who receive curbside pickup of glass containers and other recyclables that MMBC wants separated. Local consumers will effectively pay the cost of recycling twice, as producers build the price of the MMBC program into their products, and taxpayers foot the bill for curbside pickup. Though MMBC recently provided exemptions for small businesses, the program will negatively impact local economic engines such as berry farming, where consumer preference drives the use of plastic clamshell containers for retail sales – dumping the cost onto farmers, and ultimately, customers. This is a program that needs to be put on hold and reconsidered. ~ Black Press

NDP’s future survival is on the line

VICTORIA – The B.C. NDP leadership contest is officially underway, with the entry of Vancouver Island veteran John Horgan in a reluctant reprise of his 2011 run against Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth. Unfortunately for them, weekend campaign events were overshadowed by revelations of flagrant abuse of taxpayers’ money by the executive and board of the Portland Hotel Society. A pair of audits finally released last week on this network of Downtown Eastside social agencies revealed systematic looting of the $28 million a year in taxpayers’ money that has kept this supposed charity running. Alas for the NDP, local MLA Jenny Kwan not only failed to keep an eye on it, her recently separated husband was one of the executives who took part for years, and she benefited to the

tune of $35,000 in luxury travel. That’s what we know about, since much of the evidence wasn’t produced for the auditors. When this Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous scheme finally came to light, Kwan hastily paid back the $35,000 and announced she’s taking an Tom unpaid leave of FLETCHER absence. Her tearful claim that she believed nothing was wrong is simply not credible. She not only must have known of her husband Dan Small’s jetset ways, she participated in at least two trips, one to Vienna and Bristol, England to do “research” and attend a poverty conference from high-end hotels. If it wants to retain any shred of

credibility as it spouts misleading poverty statistics and simplistic solutions, the party must get rid of Kwan, who has two years left to max out her MLA pension. MLA pensions were a factor in the 2010 ouster of Carol James, who infuriated the old guard by trying to defuse a public backlash against a generous pay and benefits package worked out in private between the NDP and the B.C. Liberals. Kwan would later take a leading role in the caucus revolt that forced James out as leader. Long-time political watchers will see the PHS abuse as a bigger, uglier version of the Nanaimo Commonwealth Holdings Society scandal. There the siphoning off of bingo funds from charities cost Mike Harcourt his job as premier. In that case, NDP MLAs sat on the board, took their monthly cut and kept quiet. There’s more. Horgan became

enraged last year at the reporter who took a tip from the B.C. Liberals to reveal the NDP was skimming constituency office budgets to pay for its own “ethnic outreach” operation in Vancouver. Horgan had rubber-stamped the plan with a since-dismissed legislature accountant, and thought he had kept it secret after the Auditor-General blew the whistle. His willingness to assess its ethics remains in question to this day. Then there is Craig Keating, who took over as party president from Moe Sihota last year. Did he inherit the $72,000 salary negotiated by Sihota with the B.C. Federation of Labour and two of its largest unions? If so, do Horgan and Farnworth think this is appropriate? Will the party’s joined-at-thehip relationship with government unions even be discussed in the

carefully staged leadership contest that’s about to begin? Then there’s the policy shipwreck left behind by Adrian Dix. His plan to use environmental assessment as a weapon to torpedo industrial projects remains popular with the party’s urban base. Farnworth and Horgan have paid lip service to the notion that projects like the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion should be properly assessed. Meanwhile the federal NDP fights to keep stacking public hearings with preselected protesters. The party may wish to consider what would give its next B.C. leader any hope of governing.

Make freedom of choice mandatory I am writing in response to Graham Dowden’s letter titled “Make immunization mandatory” (Chilliwack Progress letters, March 21). I do not agree with Mr. Dowden’s point that families should be required by law to immunize their children.  I cherish my individual freedom to choose, and Dowden’s ranting diatribe suggests that the state should now have oversight of even more of my right to lead an individual and private life. Everywhere I turn, I find my personal activities are being scrutinized.  It isn’t even a secret anymore that all my electronic communications, including niceties between my wife and me, are routinely recorded and stored by agencies sanctioned to do so by our government.  It is even common

knowledge that the web access microphones and video cameras, standard equipment on home computers and games such as the Wii or the Xbox Kinect systems, scan your home and provide the data to those who know how to find it on the Web. My car, my GPS, my cell phone, and my iPad track me and make my position known as sure as any air traffic control system. Telecom companies maintain extensive data bases of all this material. . It used to be only after you were arrested and accused of a crime that you would be entered into the police criminal data files. A federal law now requires teachers to be fingerprinted.  The unlikely possibility that a released sex offender may try to impersonate a teacher has been cited as reason enough

for this law. As a result, law-abiding, longtime educators who are well established in their community must be treated as if they are criminals who prey on our young people. I want out of this prying, spying culture, but Mr. Dowden’s plan would increase the presence of the snoops in my life.  I will choose if my children and I are vaccinated. I also want to choose who has access to my personal data and my whereabouts. I urge everyone to make it known that our current super-surveillance, government controlled, Nanny State is not acceptable. A note to your elected public servant is a good first move in controlling this creeping invasion of our privacy and personal rights. Gary Raddysh Chillwack

policeman to arrive and therefore do not understand why he told them he had video footage of them performing all these maneuvers, but refused to show them, saying “you will have to wait and see it in court.” These three will pay the $368 fine and pay the towing and one-week storage which will be another $400 to $500. I know my son is getting rid of this vehicle right away. He is done. There is now conjecture as to whether or not the individuals will lose their license. If they do, this will be forced upon

them without any video evidence of wrongdoing. This will be catastrophic for my son who is newly married and starting a family as it will mean the loss of his job. It will mean that two more people will be on EI and then perhaps welfare for a mistake made that still has not yet been proven. It’s the word of the RCMP against three young men, you know who wins that battle every time. Did I mention there were two other vehicles leaving that scene at the same time the three individuals arrived. The complaint was apparently

about those drivers as the three men in the article had just arrived and were waiting for the police to get past the train. They did not drive the way the police states. I feel that until this case has been proven in court and the video of this scene shows these three people actually doing what they are accused of the police should not involve ICBC and arbitrarily threaten the loss of a license. Although these young men will pay the fines and costs, it’s not fair to cripple them further by suspending their licenses. Thomas Fairney

Time for Canadians to do what’s right for their country Another column from Tom Fletcher in which he brings out the information about those U.S. directed environmental folks and their nefarious ways. Gosh, here they come again, folks. Doesn’t Mr. Fletcher realize that the pipeline companies, the oil sands folks, the proposed refineries, the tankers that will be in our waters, etc., etc., are mostly owned and financed by non-Canadians. How big a chunk of Canada’s petroleum industry is owned directly or indirectly by the government of China? How big a

chunk of Canada, as a nation, is owned by U.S. and other foreign nations and corporations? Even the Hudson’s Bay Company is no longer owned by Canadians. We are a very small frog in a giant pond, financially, and appear to be going down the drain rapidly as we speak. Why should we who are trying to protect Canadian interests and our national environment not use any help we can get? If the money comes from the U.S. to fight the pipelines, good. If the money comes to keep the tankers

out is not directly Canadian, so what? This is a serious business we are involved in here, folks. They are coming at us from all sides and we have to choose what we want to happen in our country despite Mr. Fletcher and the other conspiracy theorists. We need to do what we think is right for our own country, not what’s going to benefit the stockholders of the oil companies, whether they are in Calgary, Houston or Beijing. Jerry Riches, Chilliwack

Drivers have been punished enough I am writing in response to your article “RCMP put the brakes on speeding drivers” (Chilliwack Progress, March 19). As the father of one of the individuals involved, I felt I should make a comment. As the police vehicle was stuck behind a train and had to wait until it passed before arriving at the site, the existence of video footage showing them “travelling at high speeds, performing drifts and 360-degree turns” is questionable at best. Because they saw the police vehicle waiting for the train to pass, the three waited for the

Medical marijuana users win a court-ordered reprieve Permitted home grows can continue pending legal challenge Jeff Nagel Black Press Medical marijuana users have won a lastminute court reprieve that allows them to keep growing their own pot at home instead of destroying it and turning to new federally licenced commercial suppliers. Federal Court Judge Michael Manson granted a temporary injunction Friday for those with a personal production licence to continue to grow medical marijuana, pending the outcome of a constitutional challenge still to be heard. Health Canada’s new regulation outlawing personal growing had been slated to take effect April 1, but the decision throws a wrench into the Conservative government’s pot reform plans. Medical marijuana users and their supporters are jubilant. “I’m very excited,” said Sandra Colasanti, a member of a coalition seeking to repeal the new rules who said she doesn’t use pot but her husband needs it. “I’ve seen a lot of people who have everything from MS to cancer to full-blown AIDS and I’ve seen people die if they don’t have access to this.” She said she’s optimistic the action launched by Abbotsford lawyer John Conroy will succeed when it goes to trial. No date has been set but it’s expected sometime this year. The federal govern-

ment cited widespread problems with the current system of permitted medical marijuana users growing pot at home or having other designated growers do it for them. Colasanti said the coalition doesn’t deny there are problems with the old system, which cities say create fire risks and other safety hazards from mould to home invasions. Health Canada could have prevented such problems had it simply conducted regular inspections of permitted medical grows, she said. “Whose idea was it to have this important a program and not have mandatory inspections?” Colasanti asked.

“The coalition is not saying there shouldn’t be some rules. We want rules. We have asked for rules.” Medical pot patients behind the court action feared they’ll pay commercial producers much more than it cost to grow themselves and end up with less access to the cannabis strains that work best for them. The injunction doesn’t stop the launch of new commercial pot producers, but it throws into doubt how large their market will be if many users don’t have to immediately switch to them for their supply. Growers licensed under the old system had been ordered by Ottawa to give written notice by April 30 that they’d halted production and destroyed all left-

over pot or face potential police enforcement. Some municipalities had been poised to send in inspection teams or police to root out the legal medical growops they were aware of come April. But Surrey’s fire department is now shelving its plans to step in to remediate an estimated 309 buildings with medical marijuana grows within the city. “I’m disappointed,” said Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis. “I guess we just simply wait.” Garis said it’s troubling from a public safety point of view, referring to academic studies that show the grow operations are 24 times more likely to burn than a regular home. – with files from Kevin Diakiw

Halq’eméylem: Giving new life to a disappearing language The Progress An endangered local language is getting new life breathed into it. Halq’eméylem, one of Chilliwack’s first languages, is dangerously close to becoming extinct. There are approximately 10 people, currently, speaking Halq’eméylem fluently in the Fraser Valley. A local contest is hoping to change that. Seabird Island, along with Abbotsford school district, is hosting the inaugural Halq’eméylem translation contest on April 24. Nine teams, eight participants each, will be trying their tongues at Halq’eméylem. That’s 72 total participants. It’s a start, said Dianna Kay, language curriculum developer at Seabird Island Community School. “The biggest issue we have right now is that not enough people are speaking our language,” said Kay. “And the risk of not speaking it is if you don’t use it, you lose it.” “We want to give our language breath, bring new energy to it, give it validity in today’s culture.” The contest will have three divisions ranging in word difficulty with both youth and adults teams. Teams were given a

list of 50 words to study including kwá:y, th’a:le, and s’élíyá meaning blue jay, heart, dream. They’ll be judged on fluency and pronuncia-

tion. If they show hesitation, or have more of an English tongue to their pronunciation, points will be docked.

another 50 words, and in three years, they’ll have 150 words,” said Kay. “The more conversation, the more dialog

around Halq’eméylem, the more ability we’ll have in saving it.” The contest is being held in the community school gymnasium at

Seabird Island from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration is closed. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Chilliwack’s Speed Watch program is looking for volunteers to help fill its ranks. The group, which works under the Chilliwack Community Policing Society, acts in partnership with the Chilliwack RCMP to monitor traffic speeds and remind motorists to drive safely. Members can often be seen on Chilliwack roadsides with radar guns and speed reader boards. The program is looking for volunteers to help staff its traffic checks. Applicants must be over the age of 19, have a valid driver’s license and be able to pass a basic security clearance. Speed Watch is also looking for a program cocoordinator. This is a volunteer position, where good planning and supervisory skills are a definite asset. Anyone interested in learning more about either of these positions can contact Cpl. Doug Kivinen at the Chilliwack Community Policing Society at 45877 Wellington Ave., 604-393-3000.

Gary Moran is both a dreamer and a visionary. His greatest wish has always been to build an Agritainment Park and if creative genius, hardwork and determination are the ingredients to bring this dream to fruition, Ana then MACEDO there is no question that it will come true. Gary is a New Westminster boy who spent many years making his living off the water. He began working for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans right out of high school, patrolling the shores between Vancouver and Alaska. He also took to the high seas as a commercial fisherman for a time. After his first son was born, the time away from home became unbearable so he decided to take a job on the river, to be closer to his young family. He began working for the federal government’s public works department as a tugboat captain. “I worked dredging the river. We’d stir up the bottom of the river then the sand was suctioned up and placed on dry land for construction purposes,” he explained. Gary had always dreamed of working as a tugboat captain. His desire was deeprooted and inexplicable; it seemed to have always been there. “My mom was terrified when I told her what I wanted to do,” he smiled. You see, his father had once been a tugboat captain himself and had died on the job when Gary was just a year old. The federal government eventually privatized the work and Gary moved on. “I tried going back to commercial fishing. I went on two, 10-day trips and kept a journal through the entire time. I was so homesick and missed Lisa and the boys so badly that I knew I could never do that job again,” he said. Losing his father and never getting to know him left a huge void in Gary’s life. “I always chose my careers with the freedom to be able

The introduction of Disclosure and Agency. Disclosure took all the uncertainty away. Simply put, disclose all things known to all parties involved. Agency, a clear understanding of the relationship you are entering into with your Realtor! I now enter my senior years as a Realtor, with my knowledge and experience I bring added value to the process of preparing you to make a well informed decision whether you are buying or selling.

Mortgage rates still at an all time low When it’s time to apply for your mortgage loan, how do you choose among the many lenders and brokers ready to assist you? How do you evaluate the many loan programs available and select the best one for you? Consider the following recommendations to point you in the direction of the right loan. First, take some time with the whole process. Don’t decide on a mortgage loan package before you have studied all your options. It helps to write out the terms and conditions of each available loan package, including closing costs. Set up a table so you can compare the costs at a glance. Next, how long of a term should you choose – three year, five year, 10 year? With the lowest interest rates in approximately 40 years, by all means consider a long-term mortgage. This ensures your payment will not change regardless of any fluctuation in the interest rate for the entire term you have chosen. You can invest more significantly in your home equity by making extra mortgage payments as often as possible, requesting that these payments go directly to the loan principle. Even small additional monthly payments can save you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your loan. The majority of buyers select a 25 year amortization

If you are looking for the right Realtor® to market your home, or you’re planning on purchasing and want to know which neighbourhood will be just right for you, give me a call! Born and raised in Chilliwack and being actively involved in my community has given me extensive knowledge of the area that will be invaluable for your real estate needs. I would love to work with you! Helping You Make Your Dreams a Reality!

mortgage, but if you are confident that your monthly income will continue to cover a higher mortgage payment, you might choose a 15-20 year amortization which significantly reduces the amount of interest you will pay over the term of your loan. Variable Rate Mortgages (VRM’s) are another option to investigate. VRM’s carry more risk than fixed rate loans, because they are subject to future increases in mortgage interest rates. If you decide on an VRM, make sure you are comfortable with the risk factor. However, if the interest rates start climbing, VRM mortgages can be converted to a fixed rate, locking in at current rates and preventing your mortgage from being affected by further increases in the interest rate. While you are shopping for the right loan package, request a complete, up-to-date analysis of your credit status. Ask a mortgage loan professional just how much credit the lenders will be willing to extend to you, based on your credit worthiness. Getting pre-qualified for your mortgage loan will avoid any disappointment when you find the perfect home in your price range. Then, contact a real estate professional and happy house hunting.

Your Valley Realtor - Auctioneer. Born and raised in Chilliwack, I have worked with the farming community, local businesses, and you - the people for many years! In my auction business and with real estate, I have always made my clients number one. New friends and old have made my life exciting. This year I won the Presidents Club Award. It was due to all my client support past and present. In 2012 I was asked to come back to the auction and sell. It has been delightful to get back in touch with all my auction people and we have had some great auctions so far. I have moved my home office to “The Old General Store” Monday to Wednesday 10 am - 3 pm., to take goods for auction, for clients and friends to view auction items, come in for real estate information, coffee, or a visit. I pride myself on service and after service, and always put my clients first. I hope that we can become a one stop shopping experience.

For many people, their home is their biggest asset and their prized possession. When it comes time to buy that first home, or sell your current home and upgrade, why trust someone that doesn’t have intimate knowledge of the area and local market? Having been born and raised in Chilliwack, knowing the community and various neighbourhoods comes as second nature to me. With an extensive background in Personal and Commercial Insurance Sales and Marketing, I know what it takes to market products to the right people to achieve a quick sale and for top dollar. I love working with people and seeing my clients meet their Real Estate Goals is my main focus!

We moved in on Halloween night,” he smiled. The year after buying the property, Gary’s creative juices started to flow. He organized a Pumpkin Festival that was well received at the time. He followed that up with Santa’s Ice Castle. Two years later, he decided to concentrate on Halloween and transformed the Pumpkin Festival into Reaper’s Haunted Attraction. Over the years, the event has grown and evolved and is now attracting approximately 15,000 visitors. “Our visitors come from all over. They come from Western Canada as well as the US.

border at Sumas and the border guard asked them where they were going and they told him they were coming to Chilliwack to check out the haunted house, he ended up telling them that it was Reaper’s Haunted Attraction. They were absolutely amazed that he would know that,” he enthused. To encourage daytime attendance, the Moran family launched Petey’s Pumpkin Patch and it has become almost as popular as Reapers. Many of Chilliwack’s schools take part in the event as it offers a popular education component. Petey’s Country Christmas has also been added and it too is becoming a favourite destination during the Christmas holidays. “We built three state-ofthe-art Harnois greenhouses with new facades, upgraded the old Rotary train and refurbished a 40-year-old hay wagon to add to the entertainment value. This coming year will mark the 20th year for Reapers and this will be a whole new chapter in the attraction’s history. We will be revamping it this year and it will be new and absolutely amazing,” he enthused. For now though, Halloween will just have to wait. Gary and his team are busily preparing for the 12th annual Yard & Garden Show which is taking place at Chilliwack Heritage Park March 28th, 29th and 30th. “There will also be a leisure and recreation component to the show as well as the third annual Big Red Barn Burner Barbecue Competition which has become a popular attraction.

Getting up and active with PAL Spring is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf and start getting active. Introducing regular physical activity into your life is an important first step towards better health, a happier mindset, and more. The whole family will benefit from increased activity and getting on the road to a healthier lifestyle. There are so many known benefits to physical activity and an active lifestyle. Among them are a reduced risk of heart disease, premature death and stroke. Being active has also been proven to help improve self-esteem and confidence, help you sleep better, increase your energy and reduce depression, among many other things. Furthermore, it helps maintain functional independence, mobility, and bone health. For many of us, it can be quite daunting to take that first step towards an active lifestyle. And it can be more challenging to start something new without any help. The good news is residents of BC have access to a free physical activity counselling service called the Physical Activity Line (PAL). Through a phone call or online, qualified exercise professionals are available to provide exercise and physical activity advice and help you develop a customized physical activity plan for every member of the family, from children to older adults. When it comes to physical activity, more is better. To achieve the health benefits, it is important to try and progress towards the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, which recommend at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day for children and youth and 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity activity each week for adults. Adults and older adults should also add muscle- and bone-

strengthening activities that work the major muscle groups at least twice a week to help with balance and prevent falls for those with mobility impairments. Physical activity doesn’t have to mean playing a sport or going to the gym. Playing a family game of tag, going for a swim or taking a walk outside with the family pet or to the store to get groceries count towards the physical activity recommendations. Try out something new; you may find your new favourite activity! In any case, you’re bound to have some fun and feel like a happier and healthier you. The Physical Activity Line is available Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m in the Lower Mainland, toll-free at 1-877-725-1149. For more information, visit www.physicalactivityline.com or email info@physicalactivity.com.

Other physical activity resources include ParticipACTION (www.participACTION.com) and Healthy Families BC (www.healthyfamiliesbc.ca).

Go Green in the Kitchen

SINCE 1983

Visit us at booth #105/106 at the Yard, Garden & Renovation Show

Adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle is a great way to protect the planet for future generations. As the "go green" movement continues to grow in popularity, men and women are realizing more and more ways to reduce their carbon footprints. While some might still associate making green strides with carpooling and changing light bulbs, those are not the only ways men and women who want to be more eco-friendly can accomplish their goals. One method to find new ways to be more environmentally friendly is to examine a favorite hobby and think of ways to enjoy that hobby in a way that also benefits the environment. Foodies, for example, can take a look around their kitchens to find ways where their love of cooking and food can be joined together with their desires to be more ecofriendly. The following are just a few ways to go green in the kitchen.

Mr. Scoops

• Banish bottled water in favor of filters. Bottled water can be very wasteful, even when bottles are made from recycled materials. Energy is necessary to produce, ship and dispose of plastic water bottles. But bottled water can be easily replaced with water filters, which filter contaminants, such as lead,

from tap water to create a refreshing beverage that's readily available at any home connected to a water supply. Water-filtering pitchers are inexpensive, which cannot always be said about bottled water that needs to be periodically restocked. Faucet-mounted filters can be directly attached to the faucet to make the process of filtering water that much easier. • Reconsider how you store leftovers. Many people store their leftovers in plastic containers. While such containers might seem convenient, even ones made from recycled plastic are not necessarily as eco-friendly as consumers may think. That's because plastic containers are made from petroleum, a nonrenewable resource. Instead, ecoconscious foodies can opt for glass or ceramic containers rather than the more popular plastic alternatives. • Feed your lawn after you feed yourself. Many people don't like to throw away food, but it's not just leftovers that can be repurposed. Coffee grounds and eggshells can be put to use in the garden. You can add them to the compost pile in your yard, where items you would otherwise discard can help enrich the soil, mak-

ing for healthier lawns and gardens. • Fire up the dishwasher only when it's full. Dishwashers are typically more eco-friendly than washing dishes by hand, but only when the men and women loading those dishwashers refrain from running them until they are entirely full. Once the dishwasher is full, choose an efficient setting and let the dishes air dry rather overnight instead of drying them with heat. If you need the dishes for hosting duties, dry them by hand with a towel instead of drying with heat. • Rely on smaller appliances. Many home cooks rely on large appliances when working in the kitchen. But unless you're cooking for a big group, use smaller, more efficient appliances to save energy. For example, when cooking for one or two, use a toaster oven instead of a stove. The toaster oven won't use the same amount of power as the stove, and the smaller appliance may even cook the food faster. In addition, when heating water for tea, hot chocolate or coffee, use an electric kettle to heat water instead of the oven cooktop. The smaller appliance is more efficient and won't consume as much energy.

While some homes make it through winter unscathed, the harsh weather of the year’s coldest season can add several tasks to homeowners’ springtime to-do lists. While some projects are best left to the professionals, others can be tackled even by those homeowners with little or no DIY experience. The following are a handful of projects tailormade for spring. Inspect the gutters: Gutters tend to bear the brunt of harsh winter weather, and come spring gutters are in need of inspection if not repair. Winter winds, snow and heavy rainfall can compromise the effectiveness of gutters, which can easily accumulate debris and detach from homes during winter storms. In addition, gutters sometimes develop leaks over the winter months. As a result, homeowners should conduct a careful inspection of their gutters come the spring, being sure to look for leaks while clearing the gutters of debris and reattaching gutters that might have become detached from the home on windy winter days and nights. When reattaching loose gutters, make

sure the downspouts are draining away from the foundation, as gutters that are not draining properly can cause damage to that foundation and possibly lead to flooding. Take stock of roof shingles: Much like its gutters and downspouts, a home’s roof can suffer significant damage over the course of a typical winter. Shingles may be lost to harsh winter winds and storms, so homeowners should examine the roof to determine if any shingles were lost (lost shingles might even be lying around the property) or suffered damage that’s considerable enough to require replacement. Summer can be especially brutal on shingles, especially those that suffered significant damage during the winter. If left unchecked or unaddressed, problems with damaged shingles can quickly escalate into larger issues when spring rains and summer sun inevitably arrive, so homeowners should prioritize fixing or replacing damaged shingles as quickly as possible. Check for freeze damage: Frozen temperatures can be hard on humans and homes alike, but unlike humans who can stay inside when temperatures dip below freezing, homes are forced to withstand the elements throughout the winter. External hose faucets

are often susceptible to freeze damage. To inspect such faucets, turn the water on and then place a thumb or finger over the opening of the faucet. If your thumb or finger can completely stop the flow of water, the pipe where the water is coming from is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Examine the lawn for low spots: Once a lawn has thawed out, homeowners can patrol their properties looking for low spots in the yard or even low spots within spitting distance of the home’s foundation. Such spots increase the likelihood of flooding. Flooding near a home’s foundation increases the risk of potentially costly damage, while low spots on the lawn that go ignored can make great breeding grounds for insects, including mosquitoes, when the weather warms up. When low spots are detected, fill them in with compacted soil. Compacted soil can prevent spring rains from flooding a yard or damaging a home’s foundation. Assessing potential property damage is a rite of passage for homeowners in the spring. Though some damage is significant, oftentimes even novice DIYers can work their homes and properties back into shape in time to enjoy spring and summer.

Natural fertilizers loaded with nutrients and minerals Lawn and garden enthusiasts know a handful of items are essential to maintain a healthy landscape. Water, sunshine and the proper nutrients all work in concert to promote a healthy lawn. Although nutritional material is inherent in the soil, many gardeners feel soil must be amended with some sort of fertilizer to give plants a healthy boost.

Come visit us at our new showroom! B1-44335 Yale Road West

All-natural fertilizers are growing in popularity, and home gardeners have a variety of such products at their disposal. Ambitious homeowners can even create their own all-natural fertilizers from items around the house. Organic fertilizers, or those that are derived from living organisms and not manufacturered through chemicals, can provide sufficient nutrients and minerals to grow healthy plants.

Adding bone meal to soil is one of the most effective ways to increase phosphorous levels.

Bone meal: In order to store energy and reach maturity, plants need phosphate. This mineral is released over a long period of time from finely ground rock. However, a faster way to supply it to the landscape is through bone meal. Bone meal is a mixture of finely and coarsely ground animal bones that are a waste product from meat-processing plants.

Manure: The waste from herbivores (animals that feed on grass), including rabbits, horses and cows, can make super fertilizers. Some gardeners shy away from manure because they believe it to be an odoriferous, dirty product. The best produced manures are allowed to compost for at least nine months and are mixed with hay or straw. They

should not produce an offensive odor and will provide plants with a host of nutrients. Never use manures from meateating animals, like dogs, cats or humans. Feces can harbor a lot of bacteria, which can be transfered to the garden soil.

Did you know? Watering a lawn can do more harm than good if the lawn is not watered correctly. Excessive watering is a waste of water and can cost homeowners money while harming the environment at the same time. Water that is not absorbed by the lawn can result in runoff, which causes nitrogen in the grass, any fertilizer that was applied and chemicals in the water itself to run into gutters and eventually pollute streams, rivers and oceans. In addition, grass needs oxygen in the soil to grow properly. But when a lawn is overwatered, the oxygen between the soil particles is pushed out, depriving roots

vide valuable nutrients to the soil. The castings contain beneficial microorganisms from the worms’ digestive system that help break down organic matter into a form that plant roots can use. Many gardeners participate in vermicomposting, or farming worms in order to use their castings as fertilizer.

ble peelings, eggshells, coffee grounds, and other items can be added to a compost pile. Natural bacteria will slowly break down these materials into a product dubbed “black gold.” Compost can be mixed into soil before planting and used as a dressing after plants have been established.

Seaweed, which is actually a type of algae, contains the primary nutrients that plants need in order to thrive, including phosphorous, nitrogen and potassium. It also serves as a food for natural bacteria that break down nutrients into the soil, making them easier for plants to absorb. Worms: Earthworms are vital to soil health. They burrow and wiggle around in the dirt, helping to aerate the soil. But the castings, or waste, of the worms also pro-

Under its new regulations, the BC Government has set up an association led by big corporations to take over the local Blue Box recycling program throughout BC. If you look closely, you’ll see that of seven board members, six are executives of Toronto-based multi-national corporations, with the seventh weighing in from Montreal. How do you like that, British Columbia? This means, unlike the current program run locally by BC municipalities, this new program will be managed not by people whose first responsibility is our local environment, but rather, their Bay St. profits. That can’t be a good thing for BC. The most perplexing thing is that we currently have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, and costs BC homeowners just

$35 a year on average. The new proposed system does not guarantee to keep our local environment as its first priority, nor does it guarantee that there won’t be job losses here in BC. It doesn’t guarantee service levels, or say anything about how big business will pass along the costs to you when you go to pick up a pizza or buy groceries. Yikes! Perhaps this is why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to sign onto the new program, calling it a “scam.” Given that, maybe it’s time you called Premier Clark to keep BC’s environmental decisions right here in BC where they belong.

We have a Tea Dance the last Monday of each month open to all seniors of Chilliwack and District.

As people age with the inevitable march of time, it’s important for them to still feel wholly integrated into their community. At Hampton House on Hodgins Street that’s precisely what they have in mind with a couple of key programs, says Lifestyle Program manager Tracey McDonald. “Because mobility is always a big issue, we’ve made it so that our residents can still be part of their community. They can volunteer and give back meaningfully from within the comfort of their own home.” So many things get taken away in a senior’s life. This gives them back a sense of belonging. Two programs have been keeping the residents quite busy. One is called Adopt-AGrandparent, which fosters cross-generational relationships between the seniors and students of Central elementary. “When the kids arrive, they go right for the hugs and snuggles,” says McDonald. “The residents and the kids, they adopt each other.” The heart-warming program is one of her favourites. It’s only an hour long, but it’s already making a big dif-

ference in all of their lives. “There’s a nice bond that gets formed between the kids and residents,” says McDonald. They have been kept busy with Adopt-A-Grandparent ever y Monday since September. “We do whatever activity we think the kids will like, which can be adapted for our residents to also enjoy,” McDonald says. “They feel like they are helping these kids, and they are, since they are our future.” Lillian Sjogren is a retired Grade 1 teacher who still loves interacting with the children who walk over to Hampton House at the start of every week. They look forward to

Mondays now. “It’s just like being a grandma again,” she says. “I’ve been one several times.” During the hour-long activity, they might play a game, learn some line dancing, or read a book. Sometimes they do crafts with the kids or get their energy up with makebelieve horse-racing in the common room. Being involved in the young people’s lives, it makes her feel young again as she approaches her 90th birthday. Sjogren was an elementary school teacher for more than 40 years. “I loved every minute of my teaching career,” she says, adding that she has no sympathy for anyone who says Continued: PART/ p38

It’s a partnership with Chilliwack Community Services, where the residents gather items to put together adorable baby baskets once a month for teenage moms in Chilliwack. “We’re working on our seventh gift basket so far, which will be ready to be picked up by the end of the month,” says McDonald.

The mothers always thank us and are so grateful for the support, it’s heart-wrenching. It’s obvious they need our help.” Through her active involvement in these programs, Sjogren says it reminds her that she still has useful talents and can share them. “It wakes us up to participate.

to sing,” says Bernie Hops, who has run the program for more than seven years. “Some find out through us that they actually love to sing and perform in public.” Hops is assisted by volunteers like Tony Bestebroer, Bob Wardle, Julie Muirhead, Nancy Browne and Janice Balakshin. The children sing for 30 minutes each session, and the volunteers often work with three classes at a time.

“All they need to bring is their voices,” he says. “And it doesn’t cost the school a nickel.

Good planning starts with a conversation Presentation hopes to answer, ‘Is there such a thing as a good death?’

EION E R F T A CONSULT

Death may be the only true certainty in life, however most of us still do a pretty poor job at planning for it. Local physicians are hoping to change that. They want Chilliwack residents to know that there are answers available, and that a good place to start is with a chat with your family doctor. Next week, doctors who are taking part in this year’s “Mini Med School” program are offering an evening dedicated to changes and advances in end-oflife care. Titled, “Is there such a think as ‘a good death?’” the program hopes to shed some light on some of the changes that have occurred in they way the medical profession deals with death. “The main goal of all the Mini Med Schools is to educate,” says Dr. Kate MacDonald, one of the presenters. “We want to educate people about end of life medicine, how it’s different from other medicine, and also how important it is.” That effort is part of a growing trend in the medical community.

released a paper, titled “It’s Time to Talk: Advance Care Planning in British Columbia.” The paper argues that physicians are an integral partner in end-of-life planning. The paper recognizes that discussing end of life plans with those you love is a necessary part of life, but acknowledges it can also be a difficult conversation to have. Starting early and revising plans when life changes occur helps to normalize discussions and eases the process. Further, developing a plan in advance decreases the likelihood of overly aggressive treatment at end of life, relieves the burden on loved ones, and eases the bereavement process for those left behind. “Doctors want to work as partners with their patients, and can play an important role, in helping patients prepare for end of life regardless of age, life stage

or health status,” says Dr. David Attwell, chair of the working group that developed the paper. “All health care providers need to do a better job of letting our patients know that it’s never too early to create an advanced care plan, and that helpful resources are available. Your family doctor, who knows and understands your health history, can be a great place to start this conversation.” The first stage in that conversation can begin at the Mini Med talk which takes place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Tuesday, April 1. Dr. MacDonald will be joined by Dr. Kara Schneider and Dr. Liz Watson. Also on available will be Colleen Rush, education co-ordinator with the Chilliwack Hospice Society. Continued: MINI MED/ p45

Tele-workshops give Chilliwack families tips on providing dementia support Are your family or friends living with dementia? If so, you may have questions about how to help them. Fortunately, the nonprofit Alzheimer Society of B.C. has plenty of answers. And local residents can get its assistance through a pair of free tele–workshops next month. The first, How to Speak Up About Dementia and Make Changes to the System, explains what you can  do  to make long-lasting  social  change  for people with dementia and their families. Speakers Barbara Lindsay

and Rebecca Morris will provide the tools needed to advocate for a dementia strategy in B.C. -- an important plan given the rapidly rising incidence rate of this pressing health issue. “There is a role for you. Lasting change can’t happen without your voice,” says Lindsay. The tele-workshop runs on Tuesday, Apr. 1 at 7 p.m. Area residents can also get some practical tips at the second tele-workshop, How to Support a Friend Who Has Dementia or is a Caregiver. It will offer ideas for com-

It runs on Wednesday, April 23 at 2 p.m. Connecting to the sessions is as easy as visiting momentum.adobeconnect. com/alzheimerbc (enter as a Guest) or phoning toll-free 1-866-994-7745, then entering pass code 1122333 when prompted.

End of life and advanced care planning The panel will discuss the shift in culture and education that has occurred in the field of end-of-life care over recent years – a shift has helped normalize the dialogue surrounding an admittedly difficult and sensitive topic. Resources are available to help individuals and their families plan, said Dr. MacDonald, through Fraser Health, the Chilliwack Hospice Society and their family physician. The public needs to know, said Dr. MacDonald, that there is support available.

“No one should ever die in pain, anxious or in any discomfort if we know that death is coming and can plan for it.” The Mini Med School “Is there such a thing as a good death?” is 7-9 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould Street. No registration is required for this free presentation. Light refreshments and snacks will be served. The Mini Med School series is jointly sponsored by the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice and Chilliwack Economic Partners. For more information, call 604.702.4757.

Mid-season switch brings Mannes to Spartans Eric J. Welsh, The Progress

It started with an injury and then a phone call. Former GW Graham basketball star Lucas Mannes was home for the Christmas break, resting up after an extremely productive start to the season. Mannes spent the previous two months ripping up the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference, dominating the circuit as a member of the Briercrest Clippers — the ACAC is often referred to as the best collegiate league in the country. “Christmas break was almost over, it was a Saturday night and I’d just finished scrimmaging with some members of the (Trinity Western) Spartans,” Mannes said. “One of my good buddies (Tyus Allen), a really great player for them, had torn his ACL, and their other point guard had some eligibility issues with

grades and stuff. But I figured it was the middle of the year, so no way. Then I get a call.” Trinity Western’s head coach, Scott Allen, was on the line, telling him he could be a Spartan. “I assumed he was talking about next year,” Mannes laughed. “But after my dad talked to him he came into the room and said, ‘I have good news and bad news. Trinity wants you. The kind of bad news is they want you now.’” Meaning Monday. Meaning two days away. “Trinity is sort of a dream come true, the place to be for most Christian athletes in BC,” Mannes said. “By 3 p.m. the next day I’d made my decision and cancelled my flight back to Saskatchewan.” The toughest part was calling Briercrest coach Rod Adrian. “He said, ‘I’m going to put my coaching hat on and say I don’t really want you to leave because we have a

But... you need to do.’ He was “Because it’s a bible incredible about it, but it was probably the hardest phone school I knew it was going to be good for my develcall I’ve ever had to opment as a man, make.” spiritually,” he said.

points,” he said. Mannes played five minutes the next night against the Winnipeg Wesmen, recording one helper. “It was abrupt, and there were some moments when I wondered what I’d gotten myself into,” he admitted. “But looking back, this is where God led me to be.” It took a while for Mannes to finally hit his stride. In the final game of the season, Feb. 15 against the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades, Mannes had 10 points, four assists, three rebounds and a steal in 34 minutes. Mannes played 12 games and by season’s end finally felt comfortable. “In that last game I finally felt I was able to play how I play,” he said. “Everything was new. A higher level. Faster and more athletic. It was a real journey, but I got a little more comfortable every game, and now I know exactly what to prepare for this summer.” Whatever he did was good

enough to impress Allen and get Mannes a scholarship extension into next season. The point guard will be the focal point of Allen’s offence, a player he expects to be dynamic and an on-floor leader. “He expects a lot from his players and so, if you’re not performing to the level he thinks you could and should, he’ll let you know,” Mannes said of his bench boss. “You perform or you don’t play, and personally I appreciate that. I feel lots of athletes, including myself, take it for granted and dog it at times. With him you won’t be taking any players off, even in practice. He brings your full potential out of you.” As he preps for the 201415 season, Mannes is also diving into coaching, helping out with TransCanada basketball. He and Allen ran a spring break camp together at Highroad Academy. Get information on the Spartans online at twu.ca/ athletics.

Provincials for Project Dancer For the fifth year in a row, a Project Dance athlete will represent Chilliwack on the provincial stage. Hannah Bateman will compete at the Performing Arts BC Provincial Dance Festival, taking place June 3-7 in Penticton. The 12-year-old was chosen junior provincial stage rep (comprised of jazz, lyrical, tap and stage) at Burnaby’s Pacific West Performing Arts (PacWest) Festival. Each regional festival sends its most promising artists to provincials. Earlier this year she was named provincial junior runnerup at the Chilliwack Lions Music and Dance Festival. Her studio has racked up the hardware in recent weeks.

Project Dance teams and individuals have won 20 high-score trophies, 16 bursaries, four honours performance spots and various cash prizes. At the Synergy Maple Ridge competition, Project Dance competitors earned 18 diamond placements for scores of 92 per cent or higher. Ten year old Jessica Albert was named junior dancer of the year, 12 year old Dylan Ratzlaff was chosen intermediate dancer of the year and 13 year old Jillian Haima was intermediate runnerup. The lyrical duo performed by 14 year old Berkeley Ratzlaff and 16 year old Matthew Wyllie — depicting a young couple dealing with a young soldier going off to war — earned first place at

Synergy, plus an honours performance at their hometown Chilliwack festival. “These young dancers work so hard to improve their skills and they have an amazing work ethic,” said Project Dance owner/ director Amanda Quinton, who was recently named Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards. “Balancing training schedules with the demands of schoolwork and competitions is tough, and they always show up ready to work hard.” The studio’s competitive dancers are now readying for the month-long Surrey Festival of Dance, followed by Dance Power (Maple Ridge) and PEAK Invitational (Abbotsford).

Prospera Centre’s three-on-three hockey league is in need of one peewee coach, with the season set to start on Tuesday. Game times are Tuesday’s at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. Anyone interested in coaching can reach Andrea Laycock by email at alaycock@prosperacentre.com

Stolberg, Magda 1920-2014 Passed away on Feb. 25, 2014, in Guelph, Ontario. She came here in June 2006, after being pre-deceased by Rudi, her husband of 61 years. Mom was also pre-deceased by son, Henry, in 1979. She is survived by three children, Margaret (John Baird), Ralph (Wendy) and Herman. She had 11 grand children, 17 great grand children, and one great-great grand child. Mom came to Canada in 1951 from Germany and settled in the Fraser Valley. In 1963, she moved to Beaverlodge, AB but always longed to be in Chilliwack, until she did return in 1980. We will return Mom to beautiful British Columbia, as she always hoped to do.

Family and friends of Al Berry feel blessed to have shared in the journey of this larger-thanlife-man. Al had many passions in his life and devoted his time to his family, his church community, school teaching, square dance calling and wood working. In his early years he was very active in the Boy Scout Movement and proudly earned his way to being a “King Scout”. Al’s extended family include his wife, Joy; his daughters Catherine, Tammy, Dawn, Kim (deceased); his sons, Colin, Scott (deceased); his many grandchildren; great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Al was a well-loved leader in the Carman United Church community. In his later years with declining health, he happily took on the role of “Chief Hugger/Greeter” at the door each Sunday. Al’s square dance calling career began at UBC in 1949 and became a lifelong source of happiness and satisfaction for him. He was a consummate performer who loved the attention and the people! Al had a fulfilling teaching career and was proud to be known to thousands of students in the Chilliwack area as “Captain Purple”. In his retirement years be brought his gift of square dance calling to schools throughout the province and continued sharing this passion at hundreds of private functions. A celebration of life for Al will take place at Carman United Church on Saturday, March 29th at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to the “Carman United Church Memorial and Endowment Fund” would be most appreciated to help carry out projects beloved of Al throughout the community and wider world.

Wayne passed away suddenly on January 12th while vacationing near Progreso, Mexico. He was a cherished husband, beloved father, proud veteran, community-minded citizen and a friend to many around the world. Wayne is survived by his wife of forty-four years, Sandy, children Tony and Jaime (Kevin). He is also survived by brothers Gordon (Angie), William (Pat), Kenneth, sister Darlene (Paul) and their families. He was the favorite and only (as we would often joke) son-in-law of Esther Braden. He was predeceased by his parents, John and Dorothy Dehnke and infant sister. Wayne was born May 17th, 1945, in Barrhead, AB. He grew up in Winfield, BC. Beginning at the age of 12 ½, Wayne spent six years in the Army Cadet Movement in Kelowna and Vernon. He was a member of the Canadian Army Cadet Rifle Team in Bisley, England, in 1963. In 1964, he joined the Royal Canadian Army Officer Candidate Programme (School of Infantry). His military career lasted 30 years. During this time he served around the world as a member of the Second Battalion Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada, the Canadian Airborne Regiment and Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. Highlights from Wayne’s military career include: Two Tours with the UN in Cyprus (1967 and 1978), Officer in Charge of the Canadian Armed Forces’ Parachute Demonstration Team “The Sky Hawks” (1971-73), Member of the Canadian Delegation of the ICCS in Vietnam (1973), Staff Officer at NDHQ in Ottawa (1973-1975 and 1980), Company Commander in the 1st Battalion PPCLI in Calgary (1975-1978), Staff College in Pakistan (1979), Canadian Forces’ Liaison Officer to the US Army Infantry Centre, Fort Benning, Georgia (1980-1983), Deputy CO, 2nd Battalion PPCLI in Winnipeg and West Germany (1983-1985), Land & Amphibious Section and Chief of Infrastructure Policy HQ AFNORTH Oslo, Norway (19851990), Base Administrative Officer CFB Chilliwack (19901994). In 1992, he was the recipient of a 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada

Medal awarded to Canadians deemed to have made significant contributions to fellow citizens, their community, or Canada. In 2012, he was awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of his service on behalf of the CAFA and the Veterans community as a whole. After retiring in 1994, Wayne began a second career in Real Estate, first with Royal LePage and then HomeLife Glenayre in Chilliwack, BC. He was also involved in a variety of community organizations including President and Paul Harris Fellow Chilliwack Fraser Rotary Club (1994-1995), BC Summer Games (1993), Board of Directors Fraser Valley Credit Union and Board of Directors for Central Credit Union BC (19912002), Board of Directors for Chilliwack Community Services (1990-1994), Member Royal Canadian Legion Branch #280 (1990-2013). The past few years he was the President of CAFA Branch #8 Bornewest Association and was committed, along with other members, to keeping the Airborne spirit alive through the development of the Bornewest section of the Canadian Military Education Centre in Chilliwack, BC. Wayne was well known for his Annual Client Appreciation Pig Roasts when he was a Realtor. He was also known for his Family Cookery Book – a collection of favorite recipes from family and friends around the world. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook were donated to the Salvation Army. During his military career, Wayne’s primary concern was the welfare of his soldiers and fellow officers. Following retirement this continued as he provided veterans with information up-dates, referrals and advice. In 2013, Wayne helped to organize Heroes Hockey Challenge Yellow Ribbon Gala Dinner and Hockey Game in Abbotsford, BC, to benefit the PPCLI Foundation and their efforts to support wounded or fallen soldiers and

their families. Wa y n e was happiest w h e n surrounded by family and friends. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening and camping. And best of all were the last four winters spent in Mexico. He was not content to sit back and so became involved with providing support to two primary schools in the village of Chicxulub. The Dehnke Mexican School Charity has provided funds and supplies and it is hoped that this will continue in the future. Other projects in Mexico included the cleanup of a garbage site and working with the local Catholic Church. His latest project was assisting a Chilliwack teacher, Donnna Boucher, with her Water is Life Project. Together they were working to raise funds for a well at the Food Kitchen in Chicxulub. Although Wayne was taken from us far too soon, we are comforted with the knowledge that he lived life his way. He touched many lives over the years and he will live in our hearts forever. Soft Winds And Fair Landings All are welcome to attend a Celebration of Life on Saturday, 29 March, 2014, at 2:00pm at Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Light refreshments will be served. Internment of ashes will take place at 11 am, Sunday, March 30 at Vedder View Gardnes Cemetery, 44675 Watson Road.
