Teacher strike action begins Tom Fletcher Black Press
Stage one strike action began in schools across the province Wednesday, limiting teachers from performing certain duties. After rejecting an offer from the school district bargaining agency for a long-term contract, B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Jim Iker announced last Thursday that 72-hour strike notice had been given. Union members voted 89 per cent in March to endorse a threestage strike plan.
Phase one includes refusing communication with school managers, arriving no more than an hour before and leaving an hour after school hours, and refusing supervision of students outside class time. It does not affect pre-arranged voluntary activities such as coaching, but the refusal of supervision requires essential service levels that compel some teachers to assure the safety of students while they are out of classes. Report card preparation and parent meetings
will continue. Iker said progress at the bargaining table will determine how long phase one action would last. Phase two of the BCTF plan is rotating one-day walkouts in districts around the province. Phase three, a full-scale strike, would require a second vote by members to authorize. The BCTF has rejected the government’s offer for a 10-year agreement with pay increases totalling 6.5 per cent over the first six years and additional wage increases to be

negotiated for the final four years. There has been little change to the “lowball offer” on wages and no movement on the long-running dispute over class size limits and special needs support, Iker said. BCTF negotiators countered with a three-year proposal with three per cent plus a cost-of-living increase in each year. With compounding and current estimates of inflation, BCPSEA calculates that could amount to 13.5 per cent over three years. Continued on 2

Hope Cinema hosts Vagabond Film Show Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard
Hope Cinema will be rolling out the red carpet next week for the Vagabond Film Show. The annual event celebrates the outdoors and showcases local filmmakers. “It’s one of the more unique evenings to check out in Hope,” said Dan Pereda, who is organizing the festival with Justin Brown and Will Baerg. “It’s a great way to see what people are doing in your backyard. The calibre of filmmaking around here is unbelievable.” The first part of the night will feature about 12 short films showcasing a variety of subject matter, everything from a time lapse video of Iceland to mountain biking and backcountry skiing. The three minute or less film contest is open to adventure, documentary, travel and comedy films. A cash prize will be handed out to a winner chosen by the audience. The second half of the event will showcase several longer independent films. The Vagabond Film Show continues to grow in popularity each year and not only draws people from around the Lower Mainland, but as far away as Pemberton, Edmonton and the Yukon. “What I’ve noticed over the years is that this is so grassroots,” said Pereda. “It unites the outdoor community in the Hope and surrounding areas. What people are doing with these videos is really artistic, cool, local, realistic and people can really relate.” The Vagabond Film Show kicks off with live music at Hope Cinema on May 1. Doors open at 6 p.m. There will also be a cash bar, prize giveaways and 50/50 draw. Tickets are $10 at the Blue Moose in Hope and Mt. Waddington’s Outdoors in Chilliwack.

1.4 million flu shots a B.C. record
Tom Fletcher Black Press
It wasn’t as many as in the global H1N1 pandemic of 2009, but this year’s influenza vaccine program delivered a record 1.4 million seasonal doses to B.C. residents. Resurgence of the H1N1 strain that triggered hospitalizations and deaths among younger patients motivated a late-season surge in demand for flu shots after Christmas, resulting in temporary shortages of vaccine in some areas. Changes in policy also contributed to better protection against seasonal flu, said Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry
Kendall. Health care workers and visitors were required to get the vaccine or wear masks in patient care areas, to protect patients with underlying conditions that make influenza more serious. After the health care worker immunization rate had drifted as low as 50 per cent, the new policy prompted 80 per cent of health care employees to be vaccinated and the remainder used masks, Kendall said Wednesday. One health care aide in Grand Forks was fired after repeatedly refusing to wear a mask when working around patients. Health Minister Terry Lake said the total was increased by
extending free flu shots to anyone who was considering visiting a relative in a health care facility during the winter. Previously seniors, children aged six months to five years, seniors over 65, residents of care and assisted living facilities, those with chronic conditions and health care and emergency workers were eligible for a free vaccine. Lake said the ministry is considering offering the vaccine free to everyone in future years. Kendall said the impact of H1N1 on younger people has been analyzed. “The group over the age of 65 had the highest levels of residual immunity, perhaps from

previous infection or previous vaccination, and the group who had the least immunity was 25- to 60-year-olds,” Kendall said. “So that was why we saw the shift of hospitalizations in a younger than expected age group.” The World Health Organization tracks influenza strains around the world and estimates the strains for the coming year. The vaccine being produced for next winter includes H1N1 and common seasonal flus H3N2 and influenza B. Kendall said research is proceeding for a universal vaccine, to eliminate the guesswork in crafting the annual strain. That could be available in five years.

Business opponents of Multi Material BC are planning a court challenge to reverse the takeover of B.C.’s curbside recycling system by the stewardship agency. They continue to urge the provincial government to freeze the new MMBC system before it takes effect May 19, but are also laying the groundwork for a legal battle. Kelvin McCulloch, CEO of the Buckerfield’s chain of farm supply stores, is urging other businesses to sign and submit their MMBC contract but then give notice to the government that they won’t pay fees or otherwise cooperate with the new system to collect packaging and printed paper. McCulloch intends to gather optout letters from numerous businesses across B.C. and deliver them to the province. If the MMBC rollout continues, he said, they will argue in court that the MMBC contracts were invalid and they were coerced to join the government-created recycling monopoly. “We’re fairly confident at this point it will be struck down,” McCulloch said. “No company in their right mind would sign that contract of their own free will.” The province contends MMBC is voluntary and various industries could instead form their own separate waste-collecting organization. That option is not practical or
reasonable, McCulloch said. “The suggestion that we are able to launch or own stewardship program independent of MMBC is a sham.” The MMBC program aims to transfer recycling costs from municipal taxpayers to the producers who generate packaging and printed paper, while collecting more containers and material types than before. But many businesses argue they’re unfairly compelled to pay far higher fees than a similar system run in Ontario. Critics say MMBC’s three-member interim board is controlled by executives with multinational firms like Unilever and Proctor and Gamble who have manipulated the launch of the new program to their benefit rather than the interests of most B.C. businesses. Questioned by the NDP recently, Environment Minister Mary Polak said she expects a more representative 15-member permanent board to be named soon after MMBC’s launch. Polak said it’s logical the biggest industries that pay the most into MMBC get a large role. A new advisory council was also recently unveiled by MMBC with reps from several B.C. business groups, but critics say it has no real power. Pausing the program and the payment of fees by member businesses would cut off the money MMBC will send to most local cities that agreed to continue curbside pickup. “Any delay in implementation for
those communities would mean a loss of that savings,” Polak said, adding many municipalities have already budgeted to receive promised MMBC payments. Mike Klassen, B.C. director of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, said he’s not aware of any cities reducing their property taxes as a result of the expected MMBC savings. “That’s one of the things that’s been most misleading – the idea that this was going to save money for the general taxpayer,” he said. Klassen argues consumers will pay twice – their local taxes won’t go down but they’ll also pay higher retail prices as businesses pass along the MMBC charges. He said most mayors and councils are being cautious and aren’t spending MMBC savings until they actually arrive – meaning there’s still opportunity to freeze the rollout. “That suggests to me they’re also very wary of the program and have a fallback program in case things don’t work,” Klassen said. “The world doesn’t all of a sudden turn upside down if we pause this program and take some time to reflect on how to do this well.” Small businesses with single storefronts have been exempted by the province from MMBC’s requirements. But Klassen said franchisees don’t qualify, leaving hundreds of small businesses like meat shops and Subway sandwich outlets facing hefty costs.

Medical pot rules unleash ‘bedlam’ among B.C. doctors Jeff Nagel Black Press
B.C. doctors are being divided into two camps – the ones who will prescribe medical marijuana to their patients and the majority who won’t. And that split, driven wider by new federal rules for authorizing the drug’s use, has triggered a rush of doctor shopping by those seeking prescription pot. “It’s now bedlam out there,” said Dr. Bill Cavers, president-elect of Doctors of B.C. (formerly the B.C. Medical Association), who puts the blame squarely at the feet of Health Canada. “I don’t envy the patients who feel they benefit from medical marijuana because now it’s getting more difficult to access it.” Under the old system, physicians merely signed a form that verified their patient had one of the medical conditions for which marijuana can be used. Final approval was up to Health Canada.
Now, responsibility has been downloaded to doctors, who sign what amounts to a prescription to buy weed from a regulated commercial producer. Cavers said many doctors won’t sign – even ones who were previously authorizing medical pot for the same patients – because of the added responsibility and liability they now face, as well as strong cautions from the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons. He said doctors prescribe no other drug where there is no official, government-sanctioned scientific data or professional guidelines governing its appropriate use, recommended dosage, monitoring or potential dangerous interactions. “It places physicians in a very, very difficult position,” Cavers said, who added there are also questions about the strength and consistency of the cannabis, even from regulated producers. “We are a very un-
happy group.” Doctors of B.C. has not yet taken a formal position, but Cavers is urging doctors’ organizations and provincial colleges to pressure Ottawa to rethink the rules. “It’s absolutely imperative that we move this conversation past the opinions into actual data as to what it works for, how much is to be used and for what period of time,” he said. Until those studies are ready, Cavers said, Health Canada should revert back to the old system of doctors simply verifying an eligible diagnosis, rather than being forced to act as gatekeepers. Despite the concerns of professional bodies, significant numbers of B.C. doctors are “far more liberal” in their willingness to prescribe pot, he said. Cavers said he’s heard of doctors charging fees ranging from $25 to $185 to sign off on medical marijuana prescriptions.
Such fees for noninsured services are allowed, although the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons cautions doctors shouldn’t “exploit” patients for personal advantage and should consider factors such as ability to pay. Pot-friendly doctors have begun clustering into groups and clinics, some going so far as to offer their services online, reviewing patients’ documents via Skype and authorizing pot use. “I think it’s unprofessional,” Cavers said of web-based pot clinics that offer to help patients circumvent their regular doctors. Sensible BC director Dana Larsen said the specializing groups of doctors typically charge a few hundred dollars to sign off. “It’s either providing a really useful service or profiteering off sick people, depending on how you look at it,” Larsen said. “Maybe both.” Newly diagnosed pa-

tients have no legal access to marijuana without a doctor’s permission and they must buy from new commercial producers. But other legacy users continue to legally grow their own medical pot after a court injunction last month froze Ottawa’s plan to terminate their licences. Abbotsford lawyer John Conroy said a full trial over medical pot users’ right to grow their own will likely go ahead next February. He said doctors are being too rigid in refusing to prescribe cannabis. “I’m trying to figure out why they’re so scared of it,” Conroy said. “There’s no lethal dose yet they’re prescribing all kinds of things on a daily basis that can kill people. “There are 38,000 [medical marijuana] patients out there now.

A nuanced approach to oil and gas development Some Albertans just can’t understand it, but many B.C. residents do not want to roll over and do everything the oil and gas industry pushes for. And much of this resistance is not from those described as far-out environmentalists, but comes from business people and ordinary citizens who live here and don’t want to take unnecessary risks with the environment. The latest proof of this comes with Eagle Spirit Energy, which is proposing a pipeline alternative to Northern Gateway. It already has significant buy-in from First Nations groups in northern B.C., and if enough financial resources are made available, it just might work. Interestingly enough, Eagle Spirit is working with the Aquilini Group, owner of the Vancouver Canucks. The Aquilini family are based in B.C., have operated businesses here for years, and understand the province quite well. The same can be said for David Black, whose company owns this newspaper. He is heading a plan to build a refinery at Kitimat to ship refined oil products across the ocean — not bitumen. Eagle Spirit also opposes shipping of bitumen from B.C. ports, feeling the environmental risks are simply too high. Meanwhile, residents of Kitimat, a town which would benefit economically from Northern Gateway’s proposed terminus, voted 58 per cent Saturday in a non-binding referendum against Northern Gateway’s plans. Most British Columbians are not anti-oil. They do want oil and gas companies to respect First Nations whose territories are affected by pipeline routes, and they value the environment. They want jobs and growth, but not at any price. That nuanced stance is rarely understood in Calgary. - Black Press
Inconvenient truths for Earth Day B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher Earth Day 2014 will likely go down in B.C. history as less exciting than last year’s event. That was the day when, in the heat of the election campaign, NDP leader Adrian Dix announced in Kamloops that he doesn’t support the expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline to its Burnaby terminal, because Vancouver shouldn’t become a “major oil port.” As of this Earth Day, it has been an oil port for exactly a century, since Imperial Oil began work on B.C.’s first refinery in 1914, in what is now Port Moody. There were no
pipelines then, so crude was moved by rail or tanker. For 60 years, Trans Mountain has supplied the Chevron refinery in Burnaby that is southern B.C.’s last source of fuel. Some of the Alberta crude is piped south to be refined into fuels and some of that product is barged back up to B.C. to keep our traffic moving. Today the proposal to expand and upgrade that pipeline, and to build new oil and natural gas pipelines across the north, dominate B.C.’s political scene. In keeping with the educational aspect of Earth Day, here are some things you may not know about energy and the environment. • A recent National Geographic report summarizes the main sources of oil in the oceans around North America. Media coverage focuses on tanker and pipeline spills, but

they only account for eight per cent of the total. Fully 60 per cent of the oil load in North American waters is from natural seeps, where oil leaks from seafloor rock. One of the world’s largest is off Santa Barbara, California, where 20 to 25 tons flows out each day. It’s mostly consumed by oil-eating bacteria that have adapted and proliferated. The next biggest source is leakage from cars and trucks, which collects on pavement and is flushed to sea when it rains. • Earth Day is now preceded by Earth Hour, during which we are encouraged to turn out our lights to join a world-wide gesture of conservation. Many people use the occasion for a candlelight dinner. Given that B.C.’s power is nearly all from renewable hydroelectric sources, and that the paraffin used
to make candles is derived from petroleum or coal, this feel-good ritual produces an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. David Suzuki is now promoting the idea of Earth Month, an expansion of the symbolic effort designed to “raise awareness.” This is a popular notion in the climate change industry, which to date consists mostly of government officials and activists flying around the world to conferences in exotic locations to sign agreements that lead to, well, not much so far. • Unlike Earth Hour, B.C.’s carbon tax on fuels actually appears to be helping to reduce emissions. An update to provincial data is due this year, but what we have shows a 5.7 per cent decrease in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases between 2007 and 2011.

Environment ministers have conceded that some of this is due to the recession that struck in 2008-2009. But since the economy has recovered and begun to grow again, emissions have continued to decline. • There are simple things anyone can do, without gimmicks or government programs. One would be to stop protesting increased housing density in your community. By far the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in B.C., not to mention old-fashioned pollution, is transportation.

All of the information in this column can be confirmed from public sources. The oil industry wants to export Alberta bitumen to Asia via tankers. Under no circumstances should we allow that to happen. A bitumen spill at sea could destroy our coastline, together with the fish and wildlife that depend on it, for hundreds of years. Bitumen, even if it is diluted, does not float in sea water if there is sediment present. This has been proven many times, most recently in a thorough Environment Canada study published on Nov. 30, 2013. Page 51 of the study provides graphic evidence of sunken bitumen. Given that there is an abundance of sediment along the B.C. coast, the bitumen will sink rapidly and there will be little chance of recovering any of it if there is a spill. By Northern Gateway’s own admission the likeli-
hood of a bitumen spill at sea is over 10 per cent over the next 50 years. Others say that it is much higher. We are in agreement with the position taken by the Coastal First Nations that even the slightest risk of a spill of bitumen at sea is unacceptable. The grounding of the Exxon Valdez in Alaska in 1989 is often held up as an example of how bad an oil spill at sea can be, however, a spill of bitumen at sea would be much worse. The Exxon Valdez carried light crude and lost 250,000 barrels, one eighth of a tanker load. The light oil floated and could be removed from the beaches. Even so, after four years of work with up to 11,000 workers and 1,400 boats involved, less than 10 per cent of it was recovered. Roughly 200,000 birds and many kinds of other wildlife were killed. Approximately 1,300 miles of shoreline were affected and the fishery has yet to fully recover. Bitumen is very different. It would harden up on shore and much of it would sink to the bottom, making it unrecoverable and killing virtually everything with which it came in contact. Imagine if we lost a full tanker load.
Some say that, with GPS-based navigation and double hulls, spills such as Exxon Valdez are not possible today. They are wrong. Double hulls do not prevent hull fracture if there is a collision at speed, only if there is a gentle scrape. As for the GPS claim, most marine accidents are caused by human inattention, not by a lack of knowledge about position. All ships carried systems to indicate their location before GPS came along. The Exxon Valdez crew could have glanced at their instruments to determine their location but they didn’t, neither did the crew on the Queen of the North. Marine disasters regularly occur and a quick search of the internet shows human error is most often the problem. Undoubtedly there will be many more marine accidents in future. Our grandchildren will not thank us if we willingly risk the destruction of the B.C. coast on our watch. Fortunately there is a solution that is beneficial for all concerned: all we have to do is build a refinery at Kitimat. The refinery will convert the bitumen to gasoline, diesel and jet fuel which float and evaporate if they are spilled.
Often little or no spill remediation is required. These refined fuels simply do not cause the habitat destruction of conventional or synthetic crude oil, or anywhere near the devastation caused by bitumen. The second part of this OPED will run in the next issue. It will discuss the enormous value-add benefits and environmental advantages of a modern green refinery. The pipeline from Alberta and the tanker fleet to export the refined fuels will also be considered. Let me declare my biases. I am for creating thousands of good permanent jobs in B.C. I am for creating billions of new tax dollars for government coffers. I am for reducing the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. I am for building an oil pipeline that will never leak. I am for building a modern tanker fleet that carries only refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. I am against shipping bitumen in tankers. If you agree that we should not put bitumen in tankers please contact your local MP and say so. The Canadian government makes a decision on this next month. David Black
Immunization programs do prevent diseases once common in Canada; however, the viruses and bacteria that cause vaccine-preventable diseases still exist globally, can be imported to Canada through travel, and can be transmitted to people who are not protected by immunization. If immunization programs were reduced or stopped, diseases that are now rarely seen in Canada because they are controlled through immunization would re-appear, resulting in epidemics of diseases causing sickness and death. This phenomenon has been seen in other countries; for example, large epi-
demics of diphtheria and measles have occurred in Europe in recent decades after immunization rates declined. It is important to note that diseases such as pertussis, (whooping cough) still exist and it is immunization that prevents outbreaks. The only vaccine-preventable disease that has been eradicated globally is smallpox, and that was because of immunization. It is also important to note that some vaccine-preventable diseases require

MYTH 2: WE CAN FIND YOU USING YOUR PHONE TV shows like CSI and almost any legal or police procedural often use this “trope” of being able to pinpoint the location of someone by using the phone. It’s partially true that cell phones can reveal your “rough” location, but when you are in the backcountry it is much less accurate. There are methods we can use to try to locate you, but it is by no means as easy as the TV and movies make it look. Never rely on your mobile phone to get you out of trouble as the battery life, and range of these devices are not reliable in the wilderness, even very close to major cities! The best way to make it easier to find you is to leave a trip plan with a family member or friend.

At this time we are so very fortunate to have a group of good young people who are interested in taking our beloved station house to a new level of function. This great building is located at the intersection of four major highways of British Columbia and is the first building you see when you come off Highway 1 into Hope and district. This group of young people interested have the ability to research and receive grants, and raise funds from different levels of government to bring this building back to life for the six and half thousand people of Hope. This would take the building from being open from four to six hours a week to being open 365 days a year, being front and centre to the approximately seven million people that travel through Hope each year. Sometime in the next two years this building becomes 100 years old so lets see if we all can send it into its second century being used as an icon for all of the people of Hope. Let’s get this building back on track. Deryck Forrest

Re: Immunization doesn’t prevent diseases, Letters (March 27) Firstly, immunization is one of the most important advances in public health and is estimated to have saved more lives in Canada over the past 50 years than any other health intervention. Before vaccines became available, many Canadian children died from diseases such as diphtheria, measles and polio that are now preventable by immunization. Immunization programs are responsible for the elimination, containment or control of infectious diseases that were

Re: Government looking to enhance electoral laws, Letters (April 17) I’m sure Mark Strahl’s defense of the Fair Election Act, Bill C-23, is in line with the talking points issued by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) to MPs. We can all agree that the alleged voter registration fraud needs to be dealt with. But Mark
Strahl is silent about the other parts of this bill that would permit the incumbent party to select duty returning officers, central poll supervisors and polling clerks. It would also diminish Elections Canada powers to investigate and to comment on concerns about campaign financing and other irregularities. This bill is typical of
other conservative legislation that puts something everybody is in favour of up front and sneaks in a lot of other changes that have only partisan value. Strahl blames Elections Canada for the diminishing voter turnout, but the people who don’t vote are telling the politicians that they will not dignify the process by participating.
They will come back to the polls when electing an MP, which means that they have a voice in Ottawa rather than someone parroting the party line at home. As is, Bill C-32 does not enhance democracy or fairness, nor will it increase voter turnout. It should not be passed without major changes. Hartmut Schmid
Educate yourself on proposed legislation Re: Government looking to enhance electoral laws, Letters (April 17) It does not surprise me that Minister Strahl is defending the Conservative position in regard to the Fair Elections Act. Right now anyone who represents the NDP, the Liberals or even the Green Party are spinning their wheels because it is the year before a federal election and any opposition will be seen as partisan politics. It is a fact, as per Minister Strahl’s constituency office, that the Conservative caucus have a fierce loyalty to their leader, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and now Minister Pierre Polievre who authored this bill. It is a fact that Conservative MPs decide in caucus what response they will give to any opposition and all speak
with one voice. Even now when the Senate is saying that this bill is flawed and one brave Conservative backbencher has voiced the concerns of his constituents, Polievre is saying publicly that they will “consider” these things but they feel it is fine the way it is. In other words anyone who disagrees with the tact decided in caucus will not be heard. No matter what you think of the Senate, in this case they are trying to protect Canadians and most likely will be ignored because as I was told by Minister Strahl’s assistant “we know what is best and are going to do it!” Right now the consensus is that this is a big deal in Ottawa, but the Canadian people just don’t care. They are basically taking their democracy and right to vote as a giv-
en and trusting government to do what is right. They believe democracy will always be a given in our country. I have my opinion on this bill, but this is not the place for me to argue point by point with Minister Strahl. Our vote and how we protect it is our responsibility. When any government of any persuasion wants to change who can and can’t vote, how Elections Canada is going to be changed, and what new powers are going to be given to the sitting government, it is our responsibility to educate ourselves, look at how it will affect the most vulnerable in society and decide if it is just. We have to question if it is enhancing electoral laws or is there some other motive. Each individual eligible to vote under the current law has to decide if democracy is important
to them and what constitutes a slippery slope towards the downfall of that democracy. If we are apathetic, this bill will become law and there will be no recourse for those who go to the polls only to be told “sorry...you’re not eligible!” Any majority government will take this as a precedent to disregard any voice that opposes theirs. I am pleading with Canadians to look into what the Conservatives are planning to put into law. Think about it and talk about it with your family and friends and if it sends up red flags or you hear warning bells, let Minister Strahl know that it is you, the constituent, he is responsible to, not the caucus. If you agree with it, then stand your ground there too, but at least make an informed choice. Janet Cohade
Government shaping ridings to its advantage In regards to Mark Strahl’s letter on April 17 (Government looking to enhance electoral laws), if the federal Conservatives can keep that extra 120,000 disadvantaged votes away, it could possibly make a difference in some of the poorer ridings, such as represented by the

Community choir presents 60s Rewind Spring concert set for April 27 Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard
Hope Community Choir is hosting its annual spring concert this Sunday. This year’s theme is “60s Rewind” and will feature guest performances by “Sonny and Cher,” Sophie Enns and Shades O’ Grey. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards a $500 bursary for a graduating student of the arts and Tillicum Centre. Last year’s event raised $1,000. “We want to have good attendance because the more people that come, the more money we make,” said choir director Jill Last. “It’s not for us we need to make it, it’s for the community.” The annual spring concert has been a long-standing tradi-
tion in Hope for decades. Singer Addie Murphy attributes much of its success to the variety of music performed. “We have a following,” she added. “We have people that come every year and really enjoy it.” All members of the secular choir are volunteers, who share a love for music and come together to sing for fun. The choir currently has about 30 members, ranging in age from 11 to 90, that sing in fourpart harmony. Some of the members were at one time part of the Hope Ladies Choir which disbanded years ago. The choir rehearses weekly at Hope United Church, but will take a break over the sum-

Composting seminar in Hope All Things Organic is hosting a composting seminar at the Hope recreation centre on Saturday. The goal of the workshop is to help residents produce less waste while improving their garden’s soil quality and productivity. “Regardless of how much of a bear area you’re living in, you can still compost and do so year-round,” said MelLynda Anderson, owner of All Things Organic. “It brings ultra fertility to flower and vegetable gardens. There’s nothing that can’t be broken down through composting. You’re benefiting your soil foot print by recycling all of the green waste on your soil footprint.” Anderson’s presentation on April 26 from 1-2 p.m. will specially focus on worm and Bokashi composting systems. Worm composting is the greenest choice among composting alternatives. Worms not only speed up the composting process, consuming waste more rapidly than conventional composting systems, the castings they produce contain a wider

diversity of beneficial life and are the best organic fertilizer for soil, plants and gardens. When mixed into soil, worm castings retain water and steadily release nutrients in a form that benefits plants the greatest. Each tiny grain is enriched with humic acid, which acts as a natural soil glue that binds to plant roots, helps prevent soil erosion and delivers minerals and other nutrients directly to plant roots. Providing beneficial micro-organ-
isms to the soil in huge numbers, worm castings improve disease resistance in plants. In fact, research has shown that vermi-composting can reduce and even eliminate soil pathogens. Bokashi is a Japanese word meaning fermented organic matter. This composting system uses a bran-based material made with a culture of effective micro-organisms (EMs), which help to ferment food waste and act as a compost activator.
The Bokashi system is an anaerobic composting system, which is quite unlike aerobic composting systems such as worm bins. With Bokashi, the breakdown of food occurs in the absence of oxygen, which is why Bokashis are equipped with tight-fitting lids that keep air out. Another way that Bokashi is different from other composting systems is that all solid food waste can be placed into the indoor composter, in-
cluding meat scraps, pizza and bread crusts. Each time food waste is placed into the Bokashi, sprinkle a layer of Bokashi bran over top and close the lid. When the Bokashi is full, leave the lid on for two weeks, by which time food waste will be fully decomposed, and be the consistency of thick, black sludge. The Bokashi system is equipped with a tap, which can be opened to release the composted natural fertilizer. Dig a hole in your garden and pour this thick liquid fertilizer into your garden to fertilize your plants and soil. The seminar pre-registration deadline is April 25 at noon. This will be the last chance in 2014 to purchase composting systems from All Things Organic at the municipal government discount rates. Contact the rec centre at 604-869-2304 for more details.

Pursue career opportunities when they’re presented Wiseman says that some people are luckier than others. One good thing follows another for some folk, whereas others are less fortunate. For them, they are beset by circumstances that lead them to worse situations. Interestingly the lucky Peter ones have a Bailey few things in common. They are able to create and recognize opportunities, they are intuitive, they create self-
fulfilling prophesies and they are resilient. It seems that when these characteristics are present people have good things happen to them. The self-fulfilling prophesy helps because these i n d i v i du a l s see themselves as lucky. The theory is that when an opportunity comes along the lucky people start to get curious about it they then consider giving it a try.
I have always perceived myself as a lucky person. Living in the beautiful area of Hope, having a great home, family and career have all been things that I really appreciate and feel fortunate for having. Things have worked out for me in so many ways. Often when we speak to successful people they will say, “I’ve just been very fortunate.” It may be humility speaking or it may in fact be true. So what is luck? British psychology researcher Richard
Because they are optimistic they are open to its success. Conversely the opposite is true. If you are pessimistic and not very curious then it’s likely you wouldn’t have gotten interested in the opportunity and thought it was unlikely to work out anyway. Ultimately, Wiseman is saying that luck really comes down to the way we behave and the way we think. I guess that means we can do something about it.

Fitness instructor training for bodybuilding competition Barry Stewart Hope Standard
Facing a big birthday or other big milestone in our lives, many of us wonder if we “still have it” — and we set out to test our mettle. The test may be as simple as walking around the block or up a flight of stairs… or as complex as taking part in a major competition. The more complex the challenge, the more important it is to set incremental goals and stick to a plan, as local fitness attendant Andrea Petersen is finding. Petersen, who lives in Chilliwack, has been working at the local rec centre since September 2013. Approaching her 40th birthday in November, she has challenged herself to see if she can still compete in competitive bodybuilding. Her first competition will be the Northern Classic Bodybuilding, Fitness and Figure Show in Fort St. John on June 9. She will enter in the masters’ bikini category, for women aged 35 and older. Petersen’s foray into the field began in 2001, when she was working with a personal trainer in Victoria, to get back in shape after her first pregnancy. “She sparked an interest in me,” said Petersen. “Also, I was working towards becoming a personal trainer in 2003 at the Chilliwack Landing centre when I saw the other competitors getting ready to compete and decided that I wanted to give it a try.” Petersen got her chance in 2006 and 2007, when she took part in two competitions, before returning to a more normal but still active lifestyle. “You have to be completely committed,” she added. “You can’t have one foot in and one foot out.” There’s the considerable physical aspect to the training, including 45 minutes of cardio and 45 minutes of weights… six times a week — but there’s also a big change in the diet, which started in late February. “In the beginning, you get some ‘cheat’ meals,” explained Petersen, “and I could have bread in the early days — but not anymore. “There’s a small list of things I can eat and they fit on one sheet of paper.” Lean protein, especially chicken, is a daily staple. She can also have one red meat meal a week, and buffalo offers the leanest cuts there. “I can have any vegetables I want,” said Petersen. “Broccoli, mushrooms, sweet potato, yam, oatmeal and carrots. “Potatoes, I don’t have. And no dairy. I stay away from high glycemics, so no sugar — but brown rice,
spices and hot sauces are fine. Lots of ginger and lemon, too. “I also juice every day,” she added. “Greens, kale, spinach, lemon and one huge ginger root. Ginger is a good anti-inflammatory. “I have to weigh all of my food and I have two spreadsheets to track it.” Then there’s the water. Four liters per day. For a bit of a change, there’s always tea. “Tea is my bestest friend!” Petersen writes in her blog. “The only problem when you drink tea to fight off the cravings from the 55 Dairy Queen ads is that you then have to get up five times at night! Stop drinking tea and water after 7 p.m.! Note to self! LOL!” Writing blog entries at her fitfunfabbikinigirl.blogspot.ca and sharing her goals with others have helped her stay on her path — and these motivational measures can help others with their own fitness goals, Petersen said. “Tell people. Once you commit and you’ve told people that you’re doing it — you’re doing it. It holds you accountable.” Petersen said she is thankful for the added support from her husband, son and daughter. Also holding her accountable is her coach, Michelle Krack of Abbotsford. “She’s the one who beat me in my first two shows,” said Petersen. “I check in with her weekly.” Petersen said she looks forward to a time when she can come off her strict regimen and reverse-diet so she can, “enjoy a hot dog by the camp fire with my family.” Before then, she has a clear focus. “When I place (at the Northern Classic), I plan to go on to the BCs, two weeks later — then I am not sure,” she said. “Only the future will tell.” Mandy Arbuckle, assistant manager for Recreation, Culture and Airpark Services, said Petersen is involved in two weight-training programs at the rec centre. “She’s leading the ‘Why Weights?’ classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch,” said Arbuckle. “It’s a led activity that is good for beginners or advanced. “There’s also a new class that Andrea is one of our instructors for, called ‘Intro to Weight Training,’ from 5 to 6 p.m. on Fridays.” “This one is more focused on learning how to train on your own,” added Petersen. For more advice on physical conditioning, see Petersen or other fitness instructors at the rec centre.

“Gunner” lived a quiet fulfilling life in the small First Nation community of Chawathil. A Residential School Survivor, he fished most of his adult life fishing at “Eyxel” across from “Welqamex” (Greenwood Island) near Hope, BC. Survived by his loving daughter, two brothers and five sisters, numerous nephews and nieces. You are sorrowfully missed. Your jokes and laughter will remain with us forever. God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be. So he closed his arms around you and whispered “Come with me”
