No tax hike for Hope in 2014

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

After months of political discord in Hope, taxpayers can breathe a sigh of relief. Council has decided to move forward with a zero per cent municipal tax increase this year. A 2.2 per cent increase was originally proposed at a public consultation meeting earlier this month, but council has opted to dip into a $5 million surplus to offset the $153,000 in property tax revenue. “I certainly respect and appreciate the work that’s gone into the budget to date, but I believe we are personally in a position to offer zero per cent increase for the coming year in light of some new financial information,” said Coun. Ron Smith, who put forward the motion during Monday’s com-

mittee of the whole meeting. “I think its not only appropriate but fiscally responsible to do so in the interest of the public.” The surplus was discovered by a financial consultant last October and is the result of accumulated unallocated funds from incomplete prior capital projects and other efficiencies found in previous operating/capital budgets that have been retained. Mayor Susan Johnston said that until recently council didn’t have the specific budget numbers to make an informed decision. “We were all in the dark until we had some review of our financial position,” she added. “I personally caution the public to not think that this money can mean zero tax increases beyond this budget year. We will find

ourselves in a sad situation if we do not at the very least meet the cost of living increase each year. We have some serious infrastructure to replace and repair and that money will dissipate quickly.” Many of residents in attendance at Monday’s meeting see council’s decision as a step in the right direction for Hope. “I am very happy to see that you’ve decided to go with the zero per cent tax increase. That was one of the major initiatives of our petition that we presented to you back in August,” said Ray Zervini, who spearheaded the petition last year. “The zero per cent sends out a good strong (message) that you are listening.” The district projects an overall operating revenue of $10 million this

year to cover $9.9 million in expenses. Capital project costs alone are anticipated to total $2.2 million. Coun. Scott Medlock raised some questions Monday night about specific line items in the budget, particularly $50,000 for a Memorial Park bandstand upgrade. Several councillors acknowledged the importance of investing in existing infrastructure and considering user group requests, but also the need to be prudent with finances. Chief administrative officer John Fortoloczky confirmed that the remaining surplus will be the subject of forthcoming policy proposals for infrastructure re-investment and onhand cash reserve levels in order to pay for upcoming capital improvements. It will also be used to buffer taxpayers from future increases.

Logging equipment stolen from local operations

YLE G RGARDEN ’ MARKET

Hope RCMP is looking for the public’s help in solving a series of logging equipment thefts in the area. The first incident occurred in the early morning hours of Jan. 20, where 3,500 liters of diesel fuel and ignition keys were stolen from four separate pieces of logging equipment parked near Sunshine Valley. Since the area where the equipment was parked is remote and not easily accessible, police believe that the thief, or thieves, may have had specific knowledge of this operation. On March 13, there were three more thefts from logging operations. The first occurred at two locations in Yale, American Creek and Albert Road. The third occurred at Hicks Lake, north of Agassiz. At all three locations about 500 liters of diesel fuel and 20 Motorola radios were removed from parked equipment. The radios can

Investigators believe that, because the stolen items are specific to the logging industry, they are likely of use only to another logging company. “The thieves likely had knowledge of the logging industry to commit these thefts of such specialized equipment,” said Cpl.

Pricing a concern for lobby group in new B.C. Water Sustainability Act Legislation aims to regulate natural resource Jennifer Feinberg Black Press

Anyone concerned with how groundwater will be priced under the new B.C. Water Sustainability Act still has time to offer feedback online. It’s important to stay vigilant on this issue, and make sure the legislation “has some teeth,” said Sheila Muxlow of the Water Wealth Project. Industrial water-use pricing needs to be reformed to ensure large corporations like Nestlé “are no longer taking us for a ride and that water is being used sustainably,” Muxlow said in a release. The public has until April 8 to offer reaction to the water pricing details released with Bill 18, introduced in the legislature earlier this month, updating the more than century-old Water Act.

It’s seen by provincial offi- ince,” said Muxlow. “However, cials as a major step forward this Act is still only a broad framework and the governfor B.C. “Most notably, the new Act ment has decided to defer will bring groundwater into many of the details to future the licensing system, and regulations.” One of the will expand aspects being government’s developed is ability to pro“This Act is still only water prictect fish and ing, but guidaquatic envia broad framework ing principles ronments,” acand the government have been recording to the leased.

should “stay engaged in the process to ensure that the legislation has some teeth and isn’t another false dawn,” Muxlow added. One failure so far was the lack of adequate recognition of aboriginal rights and title. “Moving forward, it is clear that any efforts to govern water must involve leadership from First Nations who have been stewards of fresh water in this province for thousands of years,” said Muxlow. “We have a lot to be proud of in B.C., including some of the most beautiful and productive rivers, lakes and streams in the world. By pushing for world-class legislation to protect water we have an opportunity to keep things that way.” To offer feedback on water pricing go to http://engage. gov.bc.ca/watersustainabilityact/

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.”

NDP takes aim at MMBC ‘failure’ Agency is a ‘Godzilla-sized red tape monster’

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 be-

Medical marijuana users win court-ordered reprieve 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 government 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 in-

spections 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 leftover pot or face potential police enforcement. – with files from Kevin Diakiw

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

Welcoming illness back It didn’t take long for the furor to erupt after it was learned the source of the latest measles outbreak in Chilliwack was a local Christian private school. The school – and the church that supports it – has been in the spotlight before over its aversion to vaccinations. Past outbreaks of measles, mumps and whooping cough have all been tied to the community. And that association once again drew an immediate and stinging rebuke from people across the country. And rightly so. Religious freedom is a fundamental part of our Canadian identity. But that freedom should not excuse parents from denying their children the simple tools that can protect them from life-threatening, or life-altering diseases. More so, choosing not to vaccinate has implications that extend beyond one community. It leaves others – particularly children too young for vaccination – vulnerable to a disease they might otherwise escape. But while it was a particular religious community that has drawn the most fire over the outbreak, it cannot be overlooked that others are also guilty. Fraser Health estimates the percentage of the population in the Chilliwack area with adequate immunization is around 70 per cent. That leaves a significant chunk of the population either choosing not to vaccinate, or failing to ensure their inoculations are up-to-date. There are no good reasons for either. Fears that vaccinations carry some harm have long been exposed for what they are: paranoia cloaked in junk science. The bigger concern is complacency. We’ve come to expect that the childhood diseases that were once so common have disappeared. What we forget is their absence is due to a stringent vaccination regime. By failing to maintain that regime we are welcoming back illnesses that we have fought long and hard to protect our families from. - Black Press

NDP’s survival on the line

B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher 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 unpaid leave of 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 jet-set 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 rubberstamped the plan with a sincedismissed 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

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.

Immunization doesn’t prevent diseases With the recent measles cases in the Chilliwack area, a mass marketing of immunization has been the talk amongst the community. As a parent and grandparent, I have learned that immunization does not prevent diseases. As a child I was immunized and many of these diseases are in the general public again – whooping cough, polio, measles, influenza strain and others. They are not back because they

are part of the life cycle, part of nature. Outbreaks are managed. Long-term immunity is not what immunization does. As a parent it is hard to get proper information to make an informed decision. This, I believe, is due to the bullying and scare tactics of the drug companies and provincial regulations and health authorities. It is known as “mass herding” of information and the thinking that

“everyone should” or “everyone knows.” Well, that is simply not true. I had the fortune of a public health nurse tell me the recipe of what was in some of these vaccinations. The ingredients are not healthy. Carcinogens and other toxic agents are injected “into the body,” into our babies, children, adults and elders, adding any toxins to get an express pass into our systems. It is the process, the “how” and

“what” information is given to the public from corporations. Too many people think, when they see a person wearing a laboratory coat, they must know what they are talking about. This is not the way I make health decisions. Let the public know the risks and benefits. Please do not make childhood immunization mandatory. Keep the laws out of our bodies! Kimberly Hayek

People should be cautious of overgeneralizations Re: Time for teachers to avoid psychological bullying, Letters, March 12 In her letter, Anne Rostvig suggested that teachers should stop the psychological labelling of students. I am writing to inform the readers that this is simply not how things are done. A psychiatric or mental health diagnosis can only be made by appropriate health care professionals. Teachers can suggest that a student be referred to a doctor,

but teachers can not make a referral. Parents have the ultimate responsibility and choice in making mental health referrals, and only a medical doctor can make a diagnosis. The B.C. government, not teachers and not the teachers’ union, sets out the criteria for special education designations. The criteria for these designations can be found in a document called “Special Education Services Category Checklists,”

which is available online. The mental health diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder alone is not likely to satisfy the criteria for any of the special education designations. Many other criteria must also be met, including that the student’s behaviour must have a very disruptive effect, and be evident in more than one setting and with more than one person. We have all been students, and if we are parents we have experi-

enced schools again in that context. We should, however, be cautious before we overgeneralize from our own experiences, or the reported experiences of others. If you want to know more about how special education designations are made, talk to a teacher or do some extensive research online. The government policies that guide special education in British Columbia schools are all freely available online. Jacob Cowan

Teachers are sometimes the best thing going for kids Re: Time for teachers to avoid psychological labelling, Letters, March 13 I am guessing Anne Rostvig and me are from the same generation, as she is a grandmother, so I can understand how she feels about how things are in schools today. But I speak from experience, as I have been working in the school system for the past 18 years. When we were young, moms usually stayed home. That is not the case anymore, whether by choice or necessity. Also, back then, teachers

just had to teach. Also not the case anymore. Now they have to fill many different roles. But one of them is not diagnosing or labelling kids with disabilities. This has to be done by outside professionals in order for the funding needed to hire support staff. The wait list is huge for those kids waiting to be tested for various learning difficulties, and in many cases may not happen until the more senior years at high school. In the meantime, teachers and support staff work with these kids as

best they can. I work in an inner city school and never cease to be amazed at the hardships a lot of kids take for granted: no food, no new clothes, no hot water to wash, no supportive parents. I also

never cease to be amazed at the effort teachers and support staff put in to help these kids just get through the day, let alone learning anything. Adopt-a-Family, food hampers, donated clothes, hygiene products,

add to this compassion and caring, and I think you will have to agree teachers are sometimes the best thing some of these less fortunate kids have going for them. Susan Tait

Children of Pickton’s victims get $50,000 each Jeff Nagel Black Press

SUDOKU PUZZLE 436

Children of the victims of serial killer Robert Pickton will each be paid $50,000 as compensation for policing failures that allowed the Port Coquitlam pig farmer to prey on vulnerable women for years. The $4.9-million deal between the provincial and federal governments and City of Vancouver provides the payments to 98 children of 67 missing or murdered women tied to Pickton and addresses a key recommendation of the Missing Women Inquiry led by Wally Oppal. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton said the money offers a chance for victims’ families to improve their education, housing or other circumstances. She acknowledged no amount can fully repay families for the loss

of their loved ones. “It’s a fair amount, it’s the right thing to do,” Anton said. “But we can’t compensate for the loss of a mother.” The agreement is expected to settle a civil lawsuit brought by 13 families of victims. Pickton was convicted in 2007 on six counts of second-degree murder and is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years. He was arrested in 2002, but Oppal found better policing should have caught him years earlier, preventing the disappearances of many addicted Downtown Eastside sex trade workers whose DNA was later found on the Pickton farm. Oppal cited the “intergenerational impact” of Pickton’s crimes and the need to break the hold

of violence on families in recommending the compensation fund for children. Anton said the province has fulfilled or is making substantial progress on three-quarters of the inquiry’s recommendations. “I will always regret that we did not catch this killer sooner,” Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu said. Both he and RCMP Dep. Comm. Craig Callens reiterated past apologies for the policing failures. Callens said policing has improved on multiple fronts since the Pickton investigation. He said another inquiry recommendation on improved police information sharing and analysis for serious crimes will be addressed when a new 24-hour real-time intelligence centre opens in May at the RCMP’s E Division headquarters in Surrey.

The provincial government has appointed Isobel Mackenzie as B.C.’s first seniors’ advocate. Mackenzie has a broad mandate as the voice of seniors in B.C. to monitor and review systemwide issues affecting their well-being. She can make recommendations to government and other service providers in areas ranging from health and personal care to housing, transportation and income support. “I have seen first-hand the issues, the challenges and the choices facing our seniors, their families and their caregivers,”

said Mackenzie, calling her appointment an honour and a privilege. “I have witnessed the profound desire of seniors to maintain their dignity and their independence.” Mackenzie has 18 years of local, provincial and national experience working on behalf of seniors, much of it heading Beacon Community Services in Victoria.

vocate since 2007, said the government hasn’t given the new advocate enough power and independence to act as a strong champion. The enabling legislation indicates problems specific to an individual senior, rather than broad system-wide issues, are likely to be referred elsewhere. “This advocate is not empowered to look at individual issues facing seniors,” NDP seniors critic Katrine Conroy said. “These individual issues often signal systemic problems.” The Office of the Seniors Advocate opens in Victoria March 31 with a $2-million budget and can be found online at

www.gov.bc.ca/seniorsadvocate. It’s the first position of its kind in Canada. B.C. has 700,000 residents over age 65 and that number is projected to double over the next 20 years, by which time seniors will make up nearly a quarter of the population. The appointment of the advocate by Health Minister Terry Lake meets a commitment in the province’s 2012 Seniors Action Plan. That promise came after the B.C Ombudsperson issued a highly critical report in 2011 on problems in seniors’ care with 176 recommendations that critics say have largely been ignored.

A12 Hope Standard Thursday, March 27, 2014

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.

What’s going on here?

Senior Studio Art coming to local gallery Sara Lesztak Contributor

The creative vitality of budding artists from Hope Secondary School will take centre stage at the Hope Arts Gallery in April. Kristen Brown, Autumn Clark, Isabella Dagnino, Cassidy Harasin, Arianna Izawa, Georffey Karps, Brad Kohlman, Kelsey Luinge, Connor Millward, Nicole, Riddell, Laurana Teerink, and Sammy Vernon have worked not only on class projects, but also on their individual challenges. Painting, drawing, lino cut, etching, and screen print were chosen as

the main media for expressing their creativity and ideas. “It is my core belief that art is not just the stuff that we make with our hands,” said Chris Janzen, who is coordinating the event Senior Studio Art. “Art is a way of thinking: it allows us to express ideas, ask questions and process information and the world around us.” The back room exhibit at Hope Arts Gallery runs throughout April, with an artists reception on April 5 from 7-9 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Hope Arts Gallery is located at 349 Fort St.

Community garden efforts recognized The 2013 Don Bush Environmental Stewardship Award will be presented to Esther Brysch and the Hope Community Garden on Saturday by Hope Mountain Centre. The garden at the corner of Coquihalla Street and 4th Avenue was established in 2010 through Free Rein Associates, who leased the property from Esso for five years and administrated the project until last fall when Hope Community Services took over. The garden began with a grant from the Public Health Agency of Canada through the Fraser Health Authority. The plan was to provide food security to residents of Hope by growing their own food and sharing it with people in need. In 2011, Brysch was asked if she would like to coordinate the garden project. She agreed to take on the challenge, motivated by a desire to meet people with similar interests and give back to the community she lives in. Brysch began teaching people to grow their own food, coordinating volunteers and sharing the yield through the food bank and the Joshua Project. The project started with six members and has since grown

to 21, and the number of plots has increased from six to 26. Three school classes became plot holders and a kindergarten class brought spuds in tubs to grow at the garden. Seven more garden plot boxes were also constructed last year. Gardeners sign up and pay for a plot for one year - $25 per outdoor plot, $50 per greenhouse plot and $15 for pots in the greenhouse. Besides tending their own plots, they take turns with general clean up duties and meet about five times a year for work bees that end with a campfire social at the garden. This social gathering is a highlight for many members. The Don Bush Environmental Stewardship Award recognizes Brysch’s passion and commitment to the environment and keeping the community green. Her enthusiasm for growing food started 18 years ago on an organic vegetable farm in Salmon Arm. What really motivated her was tasting fresh vegetables right out of the field, watching little seeds grow and working outside with her hands. Brysch’s vision for the Hope Community Garden

Whyles Rowan suffered a back injury and was forced to quit his job as a cook and manager of a Hope restaurant. As a result of his injury, Whyles was in chronic pain and started using pain medication and later illegal substances to selfmedicate. Additionally, Whyles was a single parent with a learning disability. It wasn’t until a close friend intervened that Whyles made a concerted effort to deal with his problems. I met Whyles at Free Rein where I was teaching life skills. Whyles admitted his challenges up front and was determined to get clean and make a better life for himself and his family. Whyles lived by the belief that if you don’t have a plan for yourself, you will likely end up being part of someone Peter else’s. He explained his idea Bailey that we give away our power to parents, partners, employers, unions and government agencies and fall into their plans rather than determining a direction for ourselves. I remember asking participants in a goal setting workshop what they want to do for employment. Whyles sarcastically responded “I want your job.” This was not an unusual answer to this question. However, when pressed he answered that he would like to be a drug and alcohol counsellor. I was doubtful that he would achieve this goal but encouraged him to follow his dream. Whyles cleaned up, attended meetings and became engaged in his own life. He returned to school and spent two years overcoming the challenges of his learning disability, finishing with a GED. Despite several attempts to enter the drug and alcohol counselling program, Whyles settled for a social work diploma

program. Eventually, Whyles completed his social work practicum with our organization, giving him real-life experience dealing with clients facing challenges similar to his own. However, as he approached the end of the program Whyles told us “I was right the first time. I do want your job.” Changing to a new career path meant going back to school to complete another program in employment counselling. Whyles had uncovered a new passion and was excited. He worked his way through the career development practitioner certificate in a year, finishing with the highest marks in his class. Whyles returned to our agency and volunteered until a position came up with an agency in a local community where he has worked ever since. He is an excellent case manager because he knows so much about programs, education, disability resources and following your passion. Whyles didn’t become a drug and alcohol counsellor. He allowed himself to follow new passions as he discovered them. So is it failure? Whyles didn’t get what he planned. It comes down to the old saying “You don’t know what you don’t know.” Passion can take you to new places. Along the journey you see sites you never knew existed, that develop new directions. Whyles could still become a drug and alcohol counsellor if he wants to. He has many more options now than he did when he started on his journey. Peter Bailey is a certified employment counsellor and director at Free Rein Associates.

High school students will be growing vegetables with the guidance of their home economics teacher and the harvest will be donated to the local food bank. Local students will also use the garden to learn about environmental science, agricultural life cycles and food security. The Hope Community Garden will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 29 with garden tours and an opportunity to register for your own plot.  At 11 a.m., Hope Mountain Centre will present the Don Bush Environmental Stewardship Award to Esther Brysch and the Hope Community Garden volunteers.  Refreshments will be on site as well as a craft activity for children.  If you are unable to attend but would like to become involved, contact Hope Community Services for information and to register for a garden plot.  The office is located at 434 Wallace St. and can be reached at 604-8692466.

includes getting more people involved in the garden learning to grow sustainable food, including older residents and those in wheelchairs using raised garden beds. She would also like to see schools and youth groups using the garden for life skills education. In 2014, there are more plots for rent and a new co-op has been established. Many groups, businesses and individuals have helped establish Hope Community Garden. From planting and weeding to supplying a greenhouse and laying waterlines, the community of Hope has shown its support for this project. Financial and in-kind support has been provided by Free Rein Associates, Emil Anderson Construction, TD Canada Trust, Ministry of Transportation, District of Hope, CUPE local 458, Thunderbird Motel Project, Hope Garden Centre, Rona, Spectra Energy, First Waste Disposal and the Smith Family. Through a grant application while still administered by Free Rein, the Hope Community Garden received $2,000 from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation in 2013.

Sports Mustangs kick off soccer season next week Barry Stewart Hope Standard

In the next two weeks, the Hope Secondary Mustang girls are going to see if all their preseason efforts will pay off against the competition. Hope soccer fans get to see, too, as the team has been blessed with four home games in a row — all against Abbotsford teams — to kick off the season. Wednesday, April 2, the Mustangs host MEI for the season-opener and St. Jean Brébeuf follows on April 3. Abby Senior visits on Tuesday, April 8 and Abby Christian closes out the home stand on Thursday, April 10. The nine-team double-A league also includes Chilliwack’s GW Graham, and Abbotsford’s Bateman, Rick Hansen and Abbotsford Traditional secondary schools. It’s a tough league — but coach Jeremy Smith has been working the team hard, even holding training sessions during spring break. The preseason started in the snow on February 17. “We had 35 girls at the first practice but I could see the commitment falling off for some,” said Smith. “Now, we’re down to 23 players and we have at least 15 at every practice. “I’ve also been trying to do a fair amount of conditioning with the girls this year. For instance, Wednesdays are our agility days and Thursdays we do hill repeats on Landstrom Road, on the other side of the river.  “It’s a nice consistent hill there, with nearly no traffic.  It’s great and the girls either love it or hate it,” said the coach. “I used to do hill repeats all the time when I was training for track. One thing I love about them is that they are low impact. “I’ve put a ton of work into the team this year,” said Smith, “but it has led to a team that is eager and committed — and also keen to fundraise.” The girls have team jackets on order, as well as an overnight tournament in Merritt at the end of April, so fundraising was a must. Enter: the spring break “Soccer and Cooking” camp idea. Smith is the school’s foods teacher, so he thought of a two-day camp for elementary-aged kids that combined time in the kitchen and on the pitch (or in the gym, if the weather turned foul). Sessions would run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a total cost per child of $50 for two days… breakfast and lunch included. “I asked the girls about it and they said ‘sure’,” said Smith. “We had 26 kids in total and I think we had 16 or 17 of the Mustangs helping out. Probably half of those are foods students.” The first Monday of spring break started with pancakes and sausages — followed by morning soccer activities — then it was back to the kitchen for spaghetti and garlic toast, with caesar salad. French toast, topped with strawberries and whipped cream, kicked off the Tuesday session. Lunch was tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. “We even sent them home with a muffin and a mixed berry sauce and granola,” said Smith. During both the cooking and soccer sessions, the high school girls got a chance to be teachers, which helped strengthen their own understanding of the skills, said Smith. Next week, we’ll see if they can make toast out of the competition. To learn more about the team, check out their new website at mustangssoccer.webs.com
