Rash of thefts in Hope area Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Thousands of dollars in merchandise has been stolen from Hope businesses in the last week. On Friday, Susan Hall arrived at work to find over $7,000 worth of liquor missing from her store as well as money from the Silver Chalice liquor store float. Overnight thieves had cut the telephone and cable lines on the roof, disabling the security system, and gained entry into the building through a smashed window

off the pub patio. Hall said the security system and horn were also ripped out. She believes the thieves filled garbage cans in the store with the liquor and used a hand cart to transport the merchandise to their vehicle(s). “It is very heartbreaking. This store is struggling anyway,” said Hall. “I have taken so many punches in this community with this business. This is just another thing that makes me have no desire in being a business owner.” Even though she’ll be able to

recoup the majority of the loss through insurance, Hall said she now has to pay the $2,500 deductible in addition to the upfront cost of restocking the shelves over the weekend. Allsys Computers was also vandalized last Thursday at about 4:30 a.m. A display window next to the front door was smashed and several items behind the curtain were taken. Owner Angus McDonald believes a man and woman were “scoping out” the store the day

before the theft. A suspect was seen running away from the store wearing a black jacket and white sneakers. This is not the first time McDonald’s business has been targeted. He said there’s been three reported incidents in the last couple years. “I would be very surprised if I get the items back,” said McDonald. “At this point in time, I want something to happen with the crime in this town because it’s escalating.

Worst measles outbreak in decades Katie Bartel Black Press

Nearly two months after the first case was reported, Fraser Health announced Monday the measles outbreak had finally been contained. The outbreak, which originated in East Chilliwack, was the worst Fraser Health has seen in almost 30 years. In a four week span, from March to April, more than 400 cases were reported; some patients requiring hospitalization. “We haven’t had this large an outbreak since 1986,” said Dr. Michelle Murti, medical health officer for Fraser Health. The rapid spread is concern-

ing. Even though measles has been eliminated in Canada, it’s still common in other countries. In fact, the recent outbreak, which started in a community notorious for low immunization rates, is suspected to have stemmed from a Chilliwack family visiting the Netherlands, a country that’s been battling a yearlong measles outbreak. “When we have lower rates of immunization, that does put us at risk of having this type of an outbreak that can spread quite quickly,” said Murti. “The significance of this outbreak and how large and rapidly spreading it was is a good

reminder for people to keep up to date on their immunizations.” Fraser Health has taken actions to help make it more convenient for families. The health authority recently started offering evening and weekend times for parents to bring their children in for vaccinations. It’s also researching ways to make booking appointments easier. As well, Fraser Health is promoting online tools that remind parents when their child is due for an immunization, including ImmunizeBC.ca and Immunize.ca. ImmunizeBC.ca will send parents free text messages one

month and one week before their child is due for immunization. Immunize.ca allows parents to keep track of their whole family’s immunization records with one click of the app. It also provides information on vaccinations and outbreaks nationally and internationally. “We do have this constant contact with measles being imported from other places and we do need to maintain that high level of immunization in our population to make sure these types of outbreak don’t happen again,” said Murti. “These are things we can do to make it more convenient for parents.”

The B.C. government has unveiled its plan to match up skills training with emerging jobs in resource development, by redirecting post-secondary funding and financial aid toward occupations in demand. The plan emphasizes industrial skills such as welding, pipefitting, heavy equipment operation, truck driving and concrete finishing, but ministers and officials stressed that it also includes engineering, health care and other occupations where jobs are

projected to increase. The main shift for colleges and universities is that within four years, a quarter of their operating grants will be targeted to programs with identified demand from the job market. Employment data will determine post-secondary funding, instead of the tradition of block grants to postsecondary schools. Ministers avoided identifying areas that will lose funding, but have previously cited far more teaching graduates than there are jobs in the school system. Premier Christy Clark has lamented a system

where students receive a bachelor’s degree and then must take additional training to qualify for jobs. Education Minister Peter Fassbender outlined a plan for K-12 schooling that aims to double the number of spaces for high school students taking industrial training in high school to 5,000 in two years. Students in these courses get college credits while still in high school, allowing them to go to work more quickly. The ministry is also revamping its kindergarten to grade nine curriculum to give it more emphasis

on “hands-on learning” and exposing students in earlier grades to the range of jobs they can expect when they graduate. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond said the Industry Training Authority will soon get a new board of directors and industry advisory councils to provide up-to-date information on job market needs. NDP leader Adrian Dix said the overhaul of the ITA to restore union representation on its board shows that the model set up 10 years ago has been a failure. He also questioned how the education system can

be restructured without adding new resources. “We need investment in skills training,” Dix said. “Instead what we have is a ministry of reallocation, which will cause considerable problems in the system and will not, I think, cumulatively give young people what they need.” Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk said the student loan program will also be adjusted to market demand, with loans reduced or forgiven for students who graduate with in-demand skills and are willing to move to get work.

Police arrest for people for wire theft in Hope From 1

“Every time something like this occurs, I have to try and figure out a way to recoup my losses. The only way I can do that is to pass it on to the customer. So everybody pays for this one way or another.” Anyone with information regarding these thefts is asked to contact Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to remain anonymous. Last Thursday was a busy day for Hope RCMP. Police also arrested four people from Burnaby last in connection with stolen Telus wire. Police conducted a traffic stop at about 8 p.m. on a pickup truck that had exited the Richmond Hill forest

service road. In plain view was 180 kilograms of Telus wire cut to fit the truck bed. Two women, aged 35 and 49, and two men, aged 39 and 51, were immediately taken into custody. They are scheduled to appear in Chilliwack Provincial Court on July 29. Each will face one count of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000. “The disruption of communications impacts access to emergency services including 911,  is an economic loss to business customers who cannot process transactions, and is an extra cost in terms of money and resources required to repair the damage to the cable,” said Cpl. Len vanNiuwenhui-

zen, adding that the average cost of doing repairs is between $25,000 and $50,000.

“The success of this investigation reflects the good work by the two police officers

and exemplifies the commitment to public safety by the Hope RCMP.”

Province keeps weapon against BCTF in reserve Jeff Nagel Black Press

The provincial government is so far holding off on a threat to try to force the B.C. Teachers’ Federation to pay $5 million a month to cover the cost of its members’ benefits in response to their limited job action. That possible financial weapon was broached earlier in the month by negotiators with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association and Education Minister Peter Fassbender said it remains an option, particularly if the union escalates its tactics. “The BCTF has said they’re taking this action to put pressure on

us,” Fassbender said last Thursday in an interview. “We may need to add some commensurate pressure to the BCTF if we find we’re not getting any solid options from them.” The union has demanded pay hikes estimated at 13.5 per cent over three years, while the government has offered 6.5 per cent over the first six years of an intended 10-year deal. Fassbender said the BCTF has made some movement in negotiations, but not a significant amount. He expressed disappointment that despite continued talks the union opted last Wednesday to begin its

first-stage strike action – restricting administrative duties and supervision of students outside of class time – a move that has prompted several rural districts to cancel recess. The BCPSEA had notified the union any strike action could trigger a call for it to cover health and welfare benefits for B.C.’s 40,000 teachers, estimated at $5 million a month. “I don’t want to inflict pain on anybody,” Fassbender said. “But there are tools available to government as there are to the union. I don’t think we want to put out any threats but by the same token we need to ensure that we have stability in the classrooms. That’s our goal.” BCTF president Jim Iker said he doubts the Labour Relations Board would approve a request ordering the union to pay benefits, noting a similar effort to make the union pay 15 per

saying it would impose enormous costs and disrupt programs. Waiting until the fall for an appeal court ruling would be unfortunate, said Dan Laitsch, an associate education professor at SFU. “It really is kind of an all-or-nothing case,” Laitsch said. “They’re playing a fairly high stakes poker game because either side could lose big depending on the outcome of the appeal.” Ideally, he said, the two sides would recognize it’s too risky to wait and instead craft a settlement that doesn’t subject schools to a months-long strike action. Laitsch said budget shortfalls now surfacing at many districts mean the province will be under pressure to find more money for the school system regardless of the outcome of the teachers’ dispute.

cent of wages was denied in the last teachers’ strike. “We would see that as retaliatory and punitive for them to even think about or threaten that the union pay the cost of the benefits when teachers are in the classroom working as hard as they normally do with students,” Iker said. Iker said it is the government that has not moved much off its position, including a refusal to bargain smaller class sizes and more access to specialist teachers. “Our hope is we can get this deal done by the end of June and not be going into September still at the bargaining table.” Overshadowing the labour dispute is last year’s B.C. Supreme Court ruling that the province must restore class size and composition to what existed in 2001. The province has appealed the decision,

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

Unplug your electronics It used to be that the old beer fridge, chugging away in the basement at all hours, was your home’s biggest energy hog. And sure, if you have an old beast whirring and humming away, it would be wise to unplug it and save your bucks. But there’s a new consumer of energy in your home — electronics — and you may be surprised to learn how much your cell phones, PVRs, computers and other gizmos are costing you. BC Hydro has been increasing their educational programming, through their website and at trade shows, encouraging customers to use less power. And one way is to properly monitor just how much your electronics are driving up your Smart Meter. While unplugging that old fridge can save you up to $85 a year, properly plugging in your gadgets has the potential to save you more than $100 a year. Just your PVR alone is costing you more than your average refrigerator. BC Hydro suggests hooking up your television, DVD, PVR, VCR and surround system to one power bar, and simply clicking the entire thing off when it’s not in use. “Phantom load” is upping your the cost of your hydro bill, whether you’re home or away, sleeping or awake. Standby power can increase your annual bill by as much as 10 per cent. If hydro companies could convince everyone in Canada to reduce their products that use standby power, they could power up to 400,000 homes, and emissions reductions would be equivalent to taking a large coal-fired power generating unit offline. All you have to do to is unplug the things you aren’t using. If we could learn as a society to turn off the lights when we leave the room, surely we can learn to click off the electronics, too. Finally, BC Hydro’s green team suggests reading a book, and going for a bike ride instead of watching TV at all — the ultimate unplugged experience. - Black Press

Inconvenient truth of pine beetle B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher Last week’s column on Earth Day myths attracted a fair amount of criticism. One tireless member of the “Alberta tar sands killing the planet” crowd scolded me for daring to mention that 60 per cent of the oil pollution in the oceans around North America comes from natural seeps. That’s eight times more than all pipeline and tanker spills combined, and it’s been going on 24 hours a day for the last 10,000 years or so. This fact blows another hole in the carefully crafted narrative that only Canadian oil exports to Asia

would destroy our delicate ecosystems. That narrative is why the daily Alaska supertankers along the B.C. coast are ignored, as is the barbaric shale oil rush in North Dakota that can be seen from space. U.S. oil barons are flaring off the vast volume of natural gas that comes up with the more valuable light crude, while the U.S. environment lobby obsesses over the Keystone XL pipeline. Here’s another one that may upset people indoctrinated by our school system, media and our supposedly green B.C. Liberal government. B.C.’s recent pine beetle epidemic was caused by human carbon emissions, right? Everybody knows that. Gordon Campbell hammered the point home in speeches for years. In 2012 I participated in a B.C. forests ministry tour of facilities where hardy seedlings are grown

for reforestation. Test plantings were also underway to see if the range of southern tree species is shifting northward due to climate change. During the bus ride, I asked the province’s top forest scientists if Campbell was right. The answer? We don’t have enough evidence to conclude that. As for shifting tree habitat, those decades-long experiments are continuing. The scientists confirmed what I already knew, which is that the most recent bark beetle epidemic is the latest of many. It’s the largest “on record,” but the record goes back less than a century. In 2008 I interviewed Lorne Swanell on the occasion of his 100th  birthday. A graduate of UBC’s school of forest engineering, Swanell began his career with the forests ministry in 1930. After

Standard

a year as a ranger, he was assigned to the Kamloops region to help deal with a pine beetle epidemic. Conventional wisdom on the latest outbreak holds that it spread so far because of a lack of cold winters, attributed to human carbon emissions. I grew up in northern B.C., and my last two visits to the Peace country were both in January. In 2004 I recall changing planes on the tarmac of Prince George airport, moving briskly in the daytime temperature near -40 C. That night, and subsequent nights, the mercury dropped to -50 C. In January 2013 I returned for some discussions on the Enbridge pipeline route, and experienced a relatively balmy  -30 C  in the daytime. So when I hear people talk about the end of cold winters in northern B.C. because of global

warming, it’s difficult to square with personal experience. I can hear the rebuttals already. It takes long periods of extreme cold to kill the pine beetle. How long? Longer than those ones, of course. Similarly flexible theories are being advanced to explain the 17-year “pause” in Earth’s average surface temperature rise, the growing Antarctic ice sheet, and this past winter’s “polar vortex.” If anyone has substantial evidence that CO2 from human activity was the trigger mechanism for the latest beetle outbreak in B.C., I’d like to see it.

Refinery will convert bitumen to light fuels our refinery. It will be so clean that in combination with oilsands extraction there will be less CO2 than in the huge conventional oilfields and refineries of Iraq and Nigeria. In other words the Kitimat refinery will neutralize the extra greenhouse gases generated in Canada’s oilsands. This refinery will be built in Asia if not in Kitimat, and if so it will emit double the CO2 of our new design. This is the reason that Andrew Weaver of the B.C. Green Party is in favour of a Canadian refinery. • An Asian refinery will also generate 100 train cars a day of very dirty coke (much fouler than B.C. coal) which will be subsequently burnt in the atmosphere to create power. The Kitimat refinery will not result in the production of any coke. As we all live on one planet, it is far better for the global environment to build this refinery in Canada. • Construction of the refinery will create 6,000 jobs in B.C. for five years. Operations at the refinery will result in more permanent jobs than any project has ever created in B.C. with approximately 3,000 direct jobs. These will be highly paid permanent jobs. These jobs will be available for

Build a refinery in Fort McMurray instead Re: Bitumen should not be put in tankers, Letters (April 24) I found David Black’s opinion editorial on the eventual destruction of the North Pacific most interesting and timely, considering the federal Conservative government’s commitment on making a decision on the Northern Gateway Pipeline in June of this year. The idea of building a refinery in Prince Rupert has already been proposed by B.C. Green Party MLA Andrew Weaver. At the same time the honorable MLA knows this is still a tragic consequence, and does nothing to answer the real problem of global warming and environmental destruction. Opting for the lesser of two evils, Dr. Weaver is hoping the powers that be see that the enormity of the investment involved and the public disdain for pipe-

lining and tankering bitumen will deter them from increasing oil sands production altogether. Personally, and with all due respect, I think the answer lies in Fort McMurray itself. Why not build the refinery right there? Then the bitumen never leaves the tar sands and this would also increase the safety of our rivers and pristine wilderness. Fort McMurray could then become the distribution and recycling return centre. They could then build pipelines for distributing refined product, far safer and many times more lucrative. The money you save not building pipelines for bitumen and the cost of not having to tanker oil back and forth across the ocean, could be used towards refinery construction, which would be around $7 billion dollars.

the life of the refinery which should be in excess of 50 years. In addition, there will be thousands of other jobs created in spinoff local petrochemical companies and in indirect employment throughout the province. • The Canadian and provincial governments, local regional districts and municipalities, and many First Nations, will share in billions of new tax dollars each year. Unfortunately, our Canadian oil companies are not interested in building a new major refinery. They are focused on extraction which is more profitable than refining. One of them challenged me to spearhead the refinery myself, so I am doing that. We have a solid business plan and as a consequence Chinese banks and other institutions are prepared to lend us most of the funds required to build the greenest and most efficient refinery in the world. We are currently moving ahead with engineering design and environmental work. We will also build a safe pipeline from Alberta to the refinery, with the active participation of First Nations. Modern pipelines can be built and operated safely. Leak data is available for everyone to see on Canadian

and U.S. government websites and it proves recently constructed pipelines are not leaking. Furthermore some of the best pipelining companies in the world are based in Canada. In addition we will build a fleet of new tankers, powered by LNG rather than Bunker C oil, to transport the refined products to Asia. This way we know the tankers will be state-of-theart and as safe as possible. The fleet will be owned by a company based in B.C. so it cannot shirk its legal liability if there ever is a spill at sea. Let me be up front about 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 Northern Gateway next month. David Black

New option for law students The last-minute controversy about Trinity Western University’s proposed law school is now over. Young people in British Columbia and beyond can look forward to attending law school in Langley. It will be a distinctive, new option. Now that the directors of the Law Society of B.C. have decided, in a 20-tosix vote, to accept TWU graduates, three key

points should be made. First, since The Federation of Law Societies of Canada, after an 18-month study, approved the TWU proposal, the B.C. body had no reason to be opposed. Second, at present many universities in the U.S. and elsewhere have similar faith and conduct requirements; they have produced fine attorneys. Third, the argument that

TWU graduates could not be good lawyers because they have agreed to a university policy upholding traditional marriage is deeply flawed. The TWU policy deals with behaviour while the students are at TWU, not with a life-long commitment. Further, as every lawyer knows, concerning any social policy, whether rooted in the constitution, the Charter, or legis-

lation, numerous lawyers are in opposition. On major policies the country is rife with lawyers on both sides of the issue. The TWU law school won’t cause or affect that reality. Read history, lawyers. Freedom prescribes diversity and social progress has come through dissenting minorities, not by imposition of views by majorities. John H. Redekop

This myth has almost certainly caused harm. If someone thinks they will be charged, they might not call for help. Any delay in activating Search and Rescue can result in the missing person being more difficult to find. A delay can turn a simple search in the daylight into a difficult night time rescue. A delay can turn a short rescue into a challenging, expensive (for the taxpayer) and risky (for the searcher) job. If you know you are lost, do not hesitate to call for rescue. It’s free and calling early makes our job faster, easier and safer.

This is the second of two columns addressing what I see as the greatest threat to the B.C. environment in our lifetime. The Alberta oil industry’s Northern Gateway plan is to export bitumen to Asia via tankers from the B.C. coast. 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. My first column discussed the light oil spill by the Exxon Valdez and the terrible toll it took on the Alaskan habitat and fishery. It also gave proof that a bitumen spill would be far worse. A bitumen spill would be almost completely unrecoverable because it would sink and stay on the bottom of our seabed. The solution that is best for Canada is to build a refinery in Kitimat. I am promoting and backing this solution. It will convert the bitumen to very light fuels that would float and evaporate if ever spilled. There are other enormous benefits: • There will be a major reduction in greenhouse gases. We will use new cutting-edge Canadian technology in

Throness ‘respectfully’ agrees to disagree Jennifer Feinberg Black Press

The idea was that anyone in B.C. wishing to change the gender designation as it appears on their birth certificate would no longer have to prove they had gender reassignment surgery first. Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness publicly disagreed with his government on this one, saying he voted against it in committee, while sup-

porting the other aspects of the larger bill. He rose in the legislature Monday morning to make it clear he does not support removing the roadblock to gender designation flexibility his government sought this week by amending the Vital Statistics Act under Bill 16, the Miscellaneous Statutes Amendment Act. Throness backed the Amendment Act in general, according to the draft Hansard transcripts,

but not the clause on gender changes. It could lead to more bullying and selfrejection among teens, he argued. Throness said his stance, his “respectful” disagreement with the BC Liberal government, was not related to morality or religion, but “a biological argument.” “My first question for the minister is this: Why would the government seek to entrench in law a sex designation that does not accord with biological

SUDOKU PUZZLE 441

reality?” the local MLA asked, according to Hansard. Health Minister Terry Lake replied that the proposed amendment was not in fact about biology. “This is about a social construct. In fact, on a notice of birth the sex of the child is recorded, and that will never be amended. That is a permanent record. “We’re talking about a birth certificate in which the gender can be amended to agree with the social construct or the way in which the person who owns that information would like to be identified. Essentially, we’re not talking about the sex

of a person; we’re talking about the gender of a person, the way in which they see themselves and the way in which they present themselves to the world, based on an application with supporting documentation from a physician or a psychologist.” But Throness argued against the idea, and cited three reasons: “First, it will embed in law and in government policy a concept of gender change that is incorrect because it purports to offer what is biologically impossible. “Second, it will entrench in law and thereby extend an existing societal trend of self-rejection

— and this at the very deepest level of human identification. Third, the law fails the test of net benefit, because while it might make a few people feel better, it will make many — particularly, impressionable people and youth — feel worse. Minister Lake acknowledged the MLA’s efforts to protect youth from a negative self-image and bullying. But he said the bill would do that, and reduce the stigma. “In fact, I think this does have a net benefit, because under the provisions that we have had in the past or up until this point that have been in place since 1974, proof of

surgery had to be provided in order to have gender reassignment,” said Lake. “This change allows people to live the life they believe they should without pushing them to have surgery, so in fact, I think that there is definitely a net benefit. So yes, the answer is I have considered the possibility, the unintended consequences, but on the evidence before us and with a lot of discussion on this bill, I believe there is a net benefit and that, in fact, this will bring the legislation to the modern era, reduce stigma and reduce the type of concern in terms of bullying that the member has elucidated.”

Each parent in a family of four needs to make $17.02 an hour in order to obtain basic needs and “maintain a decent standard of living,” says a local group. Living Wage Fraser Valley (LWFV), hosted by Vibrant Abbotsford, has calculated the “living wage” for the area from Abbotsford to Hope/Boston Bar, including Mission. A living wage is calculated based on a budget for a healthy family of four with two children aged four and seven, and each parent working 35 hours a week for 52 weeks a year. It takes into account basic expenses such as food, housing, childcare, clothing and transportation, once government taxes, credits, deductions and subsidies have been factored in. The living wage does not consider home ownership, debt, holidays, saving for retirement or a child’s education, or caring for a disabled, ill or elderly family member. This year’s calculation is up four per cent

from the 2013 figure of $16.37. Vibrant Abbotsford coordinator Alison Homer said the hike takes into account inflation, increased child care rates, and higher tuition fees and Medical Service Plan costs. Homer said the calculation is released yearly to demonstrate how the real costs of living are changing in communities. “This year, the trend continues that costs of living are rising faster than inflation, and that wages are not following suit,” she said. “It is progressively harder each year for families to make ends meet, with families having to spend $156 more each month than they did two years ago.” She said the living wage is based on the premise that people who work full-time should never have to live in poverty. Homer said it’s important for communities to support a living wage because it results in citizens having to rely less on social programs and having more disposable income to invest locally. Employers benefit by higher

employee loyalty and productivity, and decreased turnover and training/hiring costs, she said. Homer said 28 per cent of families with two children fall below the living wage threshold, and one out of three poor children live in families where at least one adult has a full-time job. Businesses can become certified “living wage employers.” Currently, Vancity is the only such employer in the Fraser Valley, although Homer says there are many other businesses who also pay a living wage. Catherine Ludgate, Vancity manager of community investment, said the company, which has 56 branches and 2,600 employees in B.C., began in 2010 ensuring that all its employees and people it contracts – for services such as security and janitorial – receive the living wage. She said employee engagement and morale “went up considerably,” there has been less staff turnover, and employees have been happier and more productive. “Paying a living wage is just the right thing to do,” she said.

The Hope Garden Club is celebrating a milestone anniversary this year. A small group of gardeners gathered in local homes over 20 years ago to start sharing plants, ideas and fellowship. Today the group has some of the original members who meet monthly. Helen Zervini, treasurer for most of these years, remembers the late Ken Wilson and Dave McCart, who were also founding members. The club has given funds to aid a number of community groups, Memorial Park and local schools. Funds are raised by the annual plant sale and raffles. The club hosted Brian Minter in February. A donation jar was set out and instead of using this to pay for costs, the club voted to give it to the First Hope Scouts. Crystal Medlock said the money went to the purchase of a number of snowshoes, which were used at their recent win-

ter camping expedition. Another $500 was given this spring to Tillicum to aid in the beautification of their grounds. Naomi Bergstrom was thrilled with the gift and knows their clientele will enjoy working on the grounds. Hope Communities in Bloom also received $1,000. The planters have been cleaned out and have some new pansies. With warmer weather new annuals will be added. In addition, the funds will be used to accent entrances to Hope and

the berm at the junction. Local coordinator Victor Smith was delighted with the contribution, pointing out that the Hope Garden Club giving money for flowers, that the community and visitors can enjoy, is a natural combination. On Saturday, May 10, the Hope Garden Club is hosting its ninth annual Plant and Book Sale at the Curling Rink from 9 a.m. to noon. This is the club’s biggest fundraiser and proceeds go towards a $1,000 bursary for a student at Hope Second-

ary, preferably one who is interested in horticulture, forestry or the environment. The club welcomes donations from the community. Labeled plants and books can be dropped off at the Hope Curling Rink between 3-5 p.m. on May 9. Locals start lining up early to purchase perennials and small shrubs, veggies and annual flowers and fruit bearing plants. Garden related items such as pots, birdhouses are often sold as well. For more information, call April at 604-8604347 and for plant pick up call Bob at 604-8690655. The Hope Garden Club is a growing group and new members are always welcome. The May 7  meeting will be at the Golden Agers Hall at 560 Douglas St. at 7 p.m. Renee Prasad from UFV will be speaking about garden pests.

Smart meter refusal fees trimmed

Tom Fletcher Black Press

BC Hydro customers who refuse to part with their mechanical power meters will continue to pay $32.40 a month for manual meter readings, with a refund on the balance of the $35 they’ve been paying since December. The B.C. Utilities Commission ruled on BC Hydro’s smart meter opt-out fees last Friday, after an order from the B.C. government required the regulator to approve fees covering all of BC Hydro’s costs. A $20 a month charge will continue for BC Hydro customers who accept a digital meter with the radio transmission function turned off. The commission cut the one-

time fee for disabling the meter radio to $22.60, far below BC Hydro’s proposed $100. Most of BC Hydro’s nearly two million customers now have fully functioning smart meters, which send daily readings to a collection network and signal when power goes out and comes back on. A few customers cling to theories that the meters present a health hazard, despite evidence that their signals are weaker than the natural background of radio frequency signals even in remote areas. BC Hydro’s meter upgrade was exempted from review, but the commission ruled last year on similar equipment for FortisBC’s electrical grid in the Okanagan and Kootenay regions. Commissioners rejected testimony from smart meter oppo-

nents, noting that their spokesmen were unqualified and in most cases repeating false or exaggerated claims in order to sell solutions to the purported hazards. BC Hydro spent nearly $1 billion to upgrade its grid, forecasting savings from automatic meter reading to faster detection of outages and elimination of power theft from meter bypasses. The commission also reduced fees for customers who move and request a radio-off meter at their new address. To switch from a mechanical meter to a radio-off meter will cost $77.60, reduced from the BC Hydro’s proposed $100. Going from one radio-off meter to another will cost $132.60, down from the proposed $155 that includes activating the meter in the former residence.

Kawkawa Camp and Retreat has undergone several site upgrades over the last couple years, including a new outdoor wood burning pizza oven, a new outdoor arena for Israeli dodgeball, and an upgraded version of 4 Square – 9 Square in the Air. This year, staff are planning to install a new storage shed, make dock improvements, and add a new gazebo in memory of former board chairman Frank Baumen. Kawkawa Camp and Retreat offers a full range of summer camps for children starting from seven years old, right up through adults at family camp.  They also have four youth camps this year, each with a different age range. There are a variety of activities, everything from wake boarding, swimming, tubing, and kayaking, to arts and crafts, archery, beach volleyball, hiking, and field games. Kawkawa Camp and Retreat is participating in a summer camp expo this Sunday (May 4) in Memorial Park,

along with Camp Squeah. The event will run from 2-5 p.m. and feature games, food, music, camp giveaways, and information booths for parents to connect with the camps. “We want people to know we’re out here, we’re here to serve them and we have great programming,” said Tim Larson, Camp Squeah summer program director and outdoor education coordinator. “We think that exposure to the natural environment is healthy for children for the love of outdoors, physical fitness and creativity. The social aspect also really helps to reinforce a respect for others and a sense of belonging. (Summer camp) fosters a healthy sense of independence and interdependence at different ages.” Camp Squeah, a ministry of the Mennonite Church British Columbia, first opened its doors off Highway 1 in the Fraser Canyon in 1962 with a few cabins, outdoor swimming pool, and dining hall. Since then, its

expanded to include a lodge, outdoor gym, low and high ropes course, rock climbing area, crafts hall, games room, numerous meeting spaces, and an extensive trail system. Summer camps include children’s programs ranging in duration from three to six days, backpacking trips, and junior and senior leadership training camps, which encourage the development of skills from a servant leader perspective. The camp also offers a variety of on and off site overnight camps during July and August for kids aged six to 17 as well as for  families. This year, Camp Squeah has added a new summer day camp program in August. The Daytrippers day camps are open to families in the Hope area and surrounding communities. Families can register their children for any or all of the days available. During the summer, there can be up to 70 staff working every week for 102 campers. Camp Squeah also hosts Camp Skylark every September, a be-

Another summer camp option is Mountain View Camp, which is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church on 110 acres west of Hope. Development on the site started in the early 1970s, and the majority was completed by 1990. Mountain View offers a wide range of activities for young people and families in a residential summer camp setting. The camp has horseback riding, water skiing/ wake boarding, canoeing, rock climbing, swimming, wilderness living, nature study, crafts, videography, sports and archery. Mountain View sum-

mer camp exists for the purpose of leading people to a clearer understanding of God through Jesus. During the spring and fall, the camp is available to other groups for retreats and conferences. Mountain View Conference Centre has 72 guest rooms with private baths, a large dining room, auditorium and a variety of meeting rooms. Cabins, bunkhouses, 900 camping and RV sites and recreational facilities are also available. There is a campfire bowl located at the base of a 75’ rock face that seats 300 people. Other facilities include an indoor/outdoor gymnasium, ski boats, canoes, and a craft building. Recreation, Culture and Airpark Services

Kawkawa Camp and Retreat is celebrating a milestone this summer. For 40 years, the camp has been a staple in the community providing quality programming focused on moral, spiritual and leadership development. Located on 20 acres on the eastern shore of Kawkawa Lake, the camp is owned and operated by the Kawkawa Camp Society, which is made up of men and women from the Fraser Valley and surrounding area. To mark the anniversary, an open house will be held on July 5. “We want to provide a place for kids and families to come, have fun and learn about God and Jesus. A big part of that too is helping kids grow in leadership responsibility,” said program director Dustin Siemens. “We do all these activities and hopefully there’s an aspect of skill development along the way so the kids are not just doing something to spend time but actually learning new stuff and being able to challenge themselves.”

Hexaphone returns to Hope’s historic Christ Church for a concert this Sunday at 2 p.m. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

Hexaphone returns to Hope

Hexaphone is stopping in Hope this weekend to present its latest concert series Mermaid in the Parlour. “This group is thought of as Canada’s only professional vocal sextet and they have gained great prominence in B.C. and Canada,” said Darla Dickinson, supervisor of Christ Church Anglican & National Historic Site. “We are excited to have them back, their last concert in 2011 was so powerful people were walking in off the street.”

Hexaphone is a six-member a cappella group from Victoria. They are regularly invited to perform at arts events, including the Victoria Symphony’s New Currents Festival, the Voice Festival, and the New Music In New Places concert series sponsored by the Canadian Music Centre. In 2008, Hexaphone was chosen and commissioned by the Canadian Music Centre to celebrate BC’s 150th anniversary. The concert will be at Christ Church National Historic Site (681 Fraser Ave.) at 2 p.m. on

May 4. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. “This concert will focus on a siren call of alluring songs for six voices by Schumann, Finzi, Brahms and Elgar,” said Dickinson. Hexaphone’s Mermaid in the Parlour is the first of four recognized performers that Christ Church will bring to Hope for their 2014 Concert Series. Tickets for Hexaphone are available at Hope Pharmasave and Romano’s. For more information, call 604-869-5402.

Hope resident honoured by BC NDP members across the province.” The luncheon, hosted by the Chilliwack-Hope NDP riding association, was in appreciation of Houghton’s lifetime of political and community work. About three dozen close friends, family and party dignitaries were in attendance. Chilliwack-Hope federal president Al Ens discussed how instrumental Houghton was when she became the first president of the newly formed provincial Chilliwack-Hope riding association. The new boundaries, which were established in 2008, presented geographical challenges.  Ens pointed out how important it was to have leadership in the Hope area and Houghton grabbed the reins, including turning her home into a meeting place for the party.  Ens presented Houghton with a T-Shirt with a vintage CCF campaign image. The two former MLAs, who have both represented the Hope area, also gave impassioned speeches of Houghton’s support to them and to the party over many decades. Lali

drew applause from the audience when he spoke about the importance of honouring lifelong members, like Houghton, who built the party. “Not very many people remember a Canada without universal health care, Canada pension, worker’s compensation, employment insurance or child tax benefits,” added O’Mahony. “These were the ‘radical’ ideas put forward by the CCF when Marjorie first joined the party.” Houghton’s son Doug and daughters Rita, Suzanne and Joanne shared stories about their mother’s commitment to give back to one’s community and care for others. Joanne spoke about how her mom inspired her to found an orphanage. At times, tears flowed, at times there was laughter. Rita recounted seeing a majestic orange sunset as a young child and describing it as an “NDP” sunset.  Suzanne talked about her mother’s political aspirations when she ran for council in Maple Ridge and founded the Outpost, a community-run newspaper.

Agassiz cheese maker earns industry awards Jessica Peters Black Press

Debra Amrein-Boyes has earned plenty of awards over the years for the artisan cheeses she’s created at Farm House Natural Cheeses. And most local cheese lovers would drool at the mere thought of a herb and garlic encrusted fromage frais, a smooth goat brie, or a perfectly crumbly feta. Now the Agassiz cheese maker has done it again, winning two awards at the 2014 Canadian Cheese Awards. But it was not an overly exotic type of cheese that won the hearts of the judges at the 2014 Canadian Cheese Awards. Instead, it was something that many people use every day — cheddar cheese. Amrein-B oyes’ clothbound cheddar won for Best Aged Cheddar category (national), and Best British Columbia Cheese. The awards were conducted by industry professionals, and were the first of what’s expected to be a biennial event. It’s a huge honour, she said, and “confirmation that the way we make cheese and the way we raise milk is good.” Almost every cheese

producer makes a cheddar, meaning Farm House’s offering was competing against a large pool of contenders. But the cheddar they produce is far from what you’ll find in a big box supermarket. Farm House prides itself on creating entirely handmade cheeses, going so far as to raise the goats and cows directly on their own farm. “Over handling degrades the milk quality,” she said, breaking down the cheese and

losing quality (and taste) every step of the way. Instead of leaving the delicate job to machines, Amrein-Boyes and her staff use gentle handling techniques to preserve the quality of the cheese. And while processed cheeses are aged in vacuum-sealed bags, their cheddar is bandaged with cheesecloth, sealed with lard, and aged for a minimum of 20 months. It’s that combination of tenderness, skill and

knowledge that have earned Amrein-Boyes accolades throughout her 11 years at the helm of Farm House Natural Cheese. But there is something else to the magic of good cheese — the environment. “People like quality, and the quality of the grass, the earth and the air all come into play,” to create that distinctive Agassiz taste. Amrein-Boyes attended the 2014 Canadian Cheese Awards in Toronto on April 7, and

the accompanying gala that featured cheeses from every corner of the country. After sampling everything from sheep and goat cheese to water buffalo cheese, she still believes Agassiz produces the best cheese in the country.

A long-time Hope resident was honoured on Saturday for her dedication and service to the provincial NDP. Former NDP MLAs Gwen O’Mahony and Harry Lali presented 92-year-old Marjorie Houghton with a framed certificate from BC NDP president Craig Keating in recognition of her “lifetime of dedication to the New Democratic Party and the principles of social democracy on which it is founded.”  The certificate also included one of Houghton’s favourite quotes from JS Woodsworth, “What we desire for ourselves, we wish for all.” The quote was engraved on a pendant as well, which was gifted to Houghton by the local riding association. “We are a movement that has always depended upon the efforts of volunteers like you,” said Keating, in a statement read at the Hope Station House luncheon. “Volunteer work like yours is the thing that has always sustained us - and always will. Your example is one that I will carry with me when I speak to

Lotto 6/49 winner bought ticket in Hope A Kelowna accountant checked his Lotto 6/49 ticket as an afterthought last Tuesday, noticing that he hadn’t bothered to check the numbers on the ticket since the March 22 draw. To his surprise, Steve Woloshyn discovered he had a winning ticket, which he had purchased at the Chevron gas station on Old Hope-Princeton Way in Hope on his way home to Kelowna from Vancouver a month ago. “I was taking out money to buy milk at a corner store and noticed the ticket was in my wallet. I had forgotten about it. So I check to validate it and discovered it was a winning ticket,” Woloshyn said. “At that moment, I was more in shock than anything. I couldn’t believe it.” Woloshyn said he is not a regular lottery ticket player, normally buying three of four tickets a year on a whim. “I guess I was lucky that I didn’t lose the ticket all that time it was in my wallet.” Woloshyn, 44, who is married with two children ages two and six, said he really hasn’t had a chance yet to let the fact he’s become an instant millionaire sink in, or what he will do with his winnings. “I guess discharging the mortgage to have that no longer hanging over your head would be one thing to do, but at the moment we’ll deposit the cheque and sit back and evaluate what to do next,” he said, noting that being an accountant will certainly offer him some insight in how to proceed. “A million dollars… it certainly enhances your life.”

Sports Over 40 runners represent Hope in Sun Run Barry Stewart

The Hope Standard

The things our kids get us involved in…. One local dad was living in his own little comfort zone three years ago, when his daughter came home and announced that she had entered the whole family in a running club at C.E. Barry School. “It was Hannah that signed us all up and I said, ‘I can’t do this!’” recalled Dan Hambly, laughing. “I’m a mechanic for Emil Anderson and during snow season, if I get the call, I’ve got to go. Also, our son Ashtyn had braces from an Achilles operation he had, so I didn’t think he could do it.” Fast forward three years and Hambly has completed the 10km Sun Run three times and is now preparing to run the half marathon at Abbotsford’s Run For Water event on May 25. “It’ll be the longest distance I’ve ever run,” said Hambly. Going back to 2011, Hambly said he was shamed into going along when Ashtyn decided that he would take part in the 13-week Team F.I.T. program — despite having had tendon-lengthening surgery and being saddled with walking braces. With other son Dryden, daughter Hannah and wife Yvonne already on-board, dad didn’t have much of a choice. “As it turned out, I never got called in to work during our training that first year,” said Hambly. “I think I only missed one of the runs. “Ashtyn and I ran the Sun Run together the first two years, then I moved up to the Run Faster group this year, so I was on my own. Ashtyn ended up getting sick the night before the race, so he couldn’t run this year. He and I will be in Run Faster next year, so we can run together again.” Sunday in Vancouver, the Team F.I.T. (Families In Training) group had 43

participants on the 10km course. “I stayed up with Dryden till the 4.5 kilometer mark this year — then he just took off !” said Dan. Dryden posted Hope’s third-fastest time, at 47:07… two minutes behind Hope’s quickest duo, Dawson Hollmann and Levi Cowan, who posted 45:18 and 45:19 respectively. Those two are intent on beating Hope Secondary teacher Jeremy Smith’s time from his high school days, rumoured to be 36 min-

utes, said Kim Hollmann, another team leader. Dan melted over nine minutes off the mark he had set with Ashtyn last year. His 5:06 per kilometer pace gave him a very respectable 51:00. After the first Sun Run, Hambly said he just shut down the running until the second year’s start up. Now, he’s hooked and he looks forward to running three times a week. “It’s good for your heart and soul,” said Hambly, “I find it relaxing — and it doesn’t cost much… just a

pair of running shoes. “If they didn’t have Team F.I.T., I don’t think we would have done it,” he added. “I think we would have just gone quadding.” One of Team F.I.T.’s leaders, Miranda Cowan said, “Dan doesn’t realize what an inspiration he is for the rest of the team.” There were other inspirational stories, such as Chris Miller and his 10-yearold son Jacob, finishing together in 53:33 — and Hope’s fastest female, Kayla Penner, crossing the line at 51:32.

“Gerry Dyble had never run before — and she never missed a session,” said Cowan. “She came in at 1:24:10.” Two entire Hope-based families were on the course this year, one for their firstever 10k. C.E. Barry student Faith Johnny got her family involved in the program and she completed the course in 1:01:48, her stepdad Teri Gonzales finishing a step ahead. At roughly 1:31:12, stepbrother Austin Gonzales, sister Kaylayla Johnny and mom Susie crossed the

line together. Once again, all six Hollmanns took part in the race: parents Peter and Kim and sons Dawson, Kai, Bendix and Fraser. Fraser crossed the line with his grandpa, Don McKay, at 1:17:31. McKay’s story is similar to Hambly’s and is inspirational in its own right. His daughter Kim’s family was on the team, then his other daughter Marlo and his wife Carole-Ann joined — so what could he do? The things our kids get us involved in….
