Rising costs impact school district budget Jessica Peters Black Press

The Fraser Cascade school district is facing reduced revenues of $283,000 for the 2014/2015 school year. This is the third year that SD 78 has been in “funding protection” by the Ministry of Education. Each year, MoE funding is reduced by 1.5 per cent, bringing the total loss to just under $900,000 for the three years. Secretary-treasurer Natalie LoweZucchet outlined the budget at a public meeting Monday afternoon, in the library of Agassiz elementary secondary school. She explained that only one per cent of district funding comes from sources other than MOE. If this seems like a problem now, it could be even worse in the next few years.

Enrolment is currently on the decline, she said, so while they have less money for program operation, there are fewer students to teach. That enrolment decline is slowing down, and is expected to increase in the 2016/2017 school year. “This means that when the district begins to see an increase in students, we will actually be worse off in terms of funding as we will be making due on less funding,” Lowe-Zucchet said. There are a few other pressures on the budget this year, she added. Besides the revenue reductions, they are seeing increases in BC Hydro rates, which rose nine per cent this April, and will rise another six per cent next April. While the district has an energy saving program, and has

recently upgraded some schools to be more efficient, this will still pose an estimated increase of $28,500 in energy costs. Also taken into account are the cost pressures from inflation, and the increase in costs of services “similar to what you’re probably seeing on your bills at home,” she said. Things like delivery cost charges and fuel surcharges are showing up where they never existed before, she added. In addition to usual education funding, $20,000 has been earmarked for the November school board elections, which Lowe-Zucchet said may be a low estimate. The district has also set aside funding to upgrade the roof of the Coquihalla elementary, and some of that may also come out of reserves. The

estimate for that job is upward of $600,000. Another $27,000 had to be added to the budget to cover rising costs of employee benefits, including CPP, EI, teacher pension and MSP. A new student information system will be implemented this year, replacing BCeSis. That will require additional resources, Lowe-Zucchet said. That could add as much when $60,000 to the budget as staff time and training is taken into account. There were some questions that remain unanswered as of yet, too. There are outstanding teacher negotiations, a CMAW contract that is up for renewal, and exempt staff who haven’t had pay increases since 2009. Continued on 9

Local trail initiatives showcased

Hope Standard

About 30 outdoor enthusiasts recently gathered in Hope to discuss the progress of trail work in the province. The community was chosen to host this year’s Trails BC annual general meeting on April 26, which provided an opportunity for local stakeholders to showcase initiatives in the region. “We have about 30,000 kilometres of formally recognized trails and many thousands more of informal trails here in B.C.,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness at the beginning of the meeting. “The government could not afford to hire the people necessary to build, groom and manage trails in B.C. You do this for love not money. We have to thank you for your commitment to the environment and for your commitment to the people of B.C. to help them more easily enjoy our beautiful province.” Trails BC is working with partners across the country to fill in the gaps and connect the Trans Canada Trail from coast to coast by 2017, in time for Canada’s

150th birthday. To date, nearly 17,000 kilometres of the trail are operational which is nearly 72 percent of the proposed route. Kelly Pearce, program director for Hope Mountain Centre, pointed out that the HBC Trail could be used as an alternate route over the Cascade Mountains. The local non-profit organization has invested countless volunteer hours over the past few years to improve camping facilities and trail quality. “We build and mostly maintain trails in order to meet our core mandate of getting people outside,” said Pearce. “(The HBC Trail) is a beautiful trail. It’s incredible country and has a range of landscapes. It’s going to be such a thrill for people to travel over.” Completed in 1849, the HBC trail was built by the Hudson’s Bay Company with the help of local First Nations. They built the trail to link the Fraser River at Fort Hope with Fort Kamloops and other important fur forts farther north to Stuart Lake. Since 2009, volunteers have logged 1,400 hours on the trail, which Pearce values at about

Moving forward, the goal is have a direct 75-kilometre trail from Hope to Tulameen. This year, Pearce said volunteers will be working on connecting Tulameen with Loadstone Lake. Another big project currently underway in the region is Experience the Fraser. Integral to the planning and development of the route has been the inclusion of the Trans Canada Trail. The Experience the Fraser project started in 2009 to connect Hope to the Salish Sea. With the aid of $2.5 million in funding from the province, Fraser Valley Regional District and Metro Vancouver jointly developed a concept plan and implementation plan for the project that identifies trails and blueway routes, implementation strategies and actions to achieve the ultimate goal of creating a worldclass destination.  Over 550 ki-

Often the media refers to us as “SAR Techs” or “Search and Rescue Officials”. The truth is that all ground SAR members in British Columbia are volunteers. Those people you see on the evening news have regular jobs and devote their spare time to training and rescuing people. They take the job seriously and consider themselves to be unpaid professionals. In fact, Coquitlam SAR members train once a week and for one weekend each month, not including first aid and other specialized rescue courses. Our members volunteer between 200 and 300 hours a year to the people of B.C.

The trail’s vision route within the FVRD is 245 kilometres in length – 28 per cent (69 km) exists and 72 per cent (176 km) needs to be constructed on both sides of the river from Hope to Abbotsford. The cost estimate to construct the 176 kilometres of non-existing trail is estimated at $9.6 million.

High-Speed Internet. Where you live.

Government of British Columbia and Xplornet Partner to Bring Affordable High-Speed to Remote B.C. Residents. Xplornet Communications Inc. is pleased to announce a partnership with the government of British Columbia to help bridge the urban/rural digital divide in rural and remote British Columbia. The initiative is a multi-year program to make Internet connectivity more affordable in rural and remote areas where installation costs can be high. The program will provide a subsidy of up to $250, or half of the cost of an installation of broadband equipment to new residential and business customers within Xplornet’s industry leading 4G rural broadband satellite footprint. This will significantly reduce the costs of installation, costs that may have been a barrier to the adoption of high-speed Internet.

last week a joint venture agreement was signed by Shell, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and Korea Gas to develop an LNG export terminal at Kitimat, with final investment decisions still up to two years away. Horgan said the broad support for his leadership shows he has healed divisions over balancing economic growth with environmental protection. He added he will meet this summer with former premier Mike Harcourt, who quit the party in April over its performance in the 2013 election. Asked recently about the acclamation of Horgan after veteran MLA Mike Farnworth dropped out of the leadership, Clark said having a vigorous debate over leadership is “a sign of a healthy party. “I wish him luck,” Clark said. “It’s easier to go through unopposed but I don’t know if it helps you.”

Rescue on Highway 5

“The government of British Columbia deserves significant praise for a program that helps break down one of the last barriers to full connectivity in the province – namely the high cost of broadband installation in remote parts of BC. Now, even the most remote British Columbians can affordably benefit from the transformative power of high-speed Internet to connect them to the global economy,” said Xplornet President Allison Lenehan. Xplornet is the country’s leading rural broadband Internet provider and takes pride in connecting over 200,000 Canadians to the world. The commitment to offering every Canadian reliable, affordable and fast Internet is shared by an ever-expanding network of over 450 local dealers, including 60 in British Columbia alone.

Mitigate the risk The Auditor General says British Columbia isn’t prepared to cope with a major earthquake. Then again, is anybody? Geologists say a mega-thrust earthquake, like the one that killed 131 people in Alaska 50 years ago, occurs about every 600 years along the West Coast. Other scientists say we have a 12 per cent chance of getting hit by a big quake in the next 50 years. Such a quake, if it’s accompanied by a tsunami, could cause $75 billion in damage, says the Insurance Bureau of Canada. That would devastate the province’s economy, says the Auditor General. While the government responded by promising to take immediate action to address the Auditor General’s concerns, it’s hard to imagine we’ll ever reach a state of preparedness that will allow scientists to exhale and challenge Mother Nature to bring it on. No country is better prepared for the “big one” than Japan. After all, it’s been hit by a fifth of the world’s biggest earthquakes. But when a magnitude-9 earthquake, followed by a huge tidal wave, hit northeast Japan in March 2011, the country was still caught off guard. Almost 16,000 people died. Damage topped $300 billion. A nuclear power plant was damaged. The lesson to be learned from the Auditor General’s report, and Japan’s experience, is that we can’t rely on government to keep us safe. We have to assume the worst will happen and do what we can to ensure our own survival and of our loved ones. When it comes to natural disaster, we can only mitigate the risk. Not eliminate it. - Black Press

‘Vocational school’ back in style B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The B.C. government has rolled out its ambitious overhaul of the public education system, from kindergarten to graduate school, much to the horror of its left-wing establishment.  The formal title is B.C.’s Skills For Jobs Blueprint: Re-engineering Education and Training. It’s designed to dovetail with the Harper regime’s Canada Job Grant that requires employers to co-sponsor training spaces so they will hire the students at the end. Elementary and middle school curriculum is being revised to increase emphasis on hands-on experience. High school and post-secondary skilled trades programs are

getting more money, but it’s going to be shifted from under-performing programs that don’t lead to jobs. Premier Christy Clark took another swipe at the bias of B.C.’s system before heading to Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong on another liquefied natural gas sales trip. She noted that 20 per cent of B.C. students, and nearly half of aboriginal students, don’t finish high school. “Not only are there kids who don’t graduate, there are kids who graduate, go out and get one or two credentials before they finally find their way into a skills training program,” said Clark, who had her own wander through university campuses before going into politics. A couple of weeks ago, Simon Fraser University president Andrew Petter downplayed the “relatively small” skilled trades shortage for B.C. industry. “We should not be engaged in a

zero-sum kind of battle for dollars,” Petter protested. That’s exactly what he and other university executives are looking at, and it will be based on the latest graduate employment data and labour demand forecasts. One of the key architects of this sweeping plan is Jessica McDonald, who shook up the public service while serving as Gordon Campbell’s deputy minister. Her report on trades training confirms what Campbell’s critics in the labour movement have long said: the government’s 10-year experiment with the Industry Training Authority is a rudderless mess.  “Certain partners, particularly organized labour, feel marginalized,” McDonald wrote. “Others, particularly employers and employers’ associations, do not feel heard within the system. Over the recent past, several new directions have been introduced such as de-regulation of trades and

modular training that have caused strain because they were not fully inclusive during development, were seen to benefit single interests, and they impacted the whole system.” The ITA board is being replaced, with union representation restored, and advisory councils from industrial employers will update their hiring needs. The B.C. Federation of Labour and the construction unions have all but abandoned the NDP after Adrian Dix’s disastrous pitch for urban anti-industry votes last year. B.C. Fed president Jim Sinclair was an early advocate for rescuing skilled trades from the second-class status they received in a culture fixated on university for two generations.  That culture has created glaring problems. There are too many institutions offering the same courses. As with health care, block funding is handed out without any serious ef-

fort to measure the results. For many students, university has become an extension of adolescence, finding one’s self through philosophy or film studies. Employers get their share of blame from McDonald. Not only did they chop up trades training to make it cheaper to obtain, their preferred source of skilled workers has been to poach from other employers who paid to train them. Skills-based employment data will be made public for students to make career choices.

either way, should be refined feedstock. The threat to the coastal and inland environment is just not acceptable since bitumen when spilled can’t be cleaned up, and a spill will happen sooner or later. North-eastern B.C. or Alberta has the water and the energy to support the

refining process. Canada would keep the construction and ongoing jobs and be able to market the valuable by-products. I would really like Mr. Black to comment on this and to tell us why he thinks a refinery on the coast is such a good idea. Hartmut Schmid

Transport system can handle diluted bitumen Re: Bitumen should not be put in tankers, Letters (April 22) and Refinery will convert bitumen to light fuels, Letters (May 1) Continued safe marine and pipeline transport of hydrocarbons is in everybody’s interest so Canadians can realize value for resources and oil producers can continue to deliver jobs and economic benefits. No one wants a spill of any product at any time. The performance track record over the past 50 years is good, but even still, work is ongoing to improve prevention and ensure producers, transportation companies and spill-responders have the

best information available to manage products safely and make the best plans possible for response, containment and clean-up in the event of an incident. David Black’s columns incorrectly suggested the Canadian oil industry is not interested in the proposed refinery project and that transporting diluted bitumen is more risky than transporting other types of oil because of its chemical properties. Fact is, oil producers are seeking increased access to existing and new markets – in Canada, the United States and internationally – to satisfy market demand for increasing Canadian oil production. All

options to achieve that goal are worthy of study. And diluted bitumen – oil sands bitumen diluted with natural gas liquids that allow it to flow – is no more dangerous than other types of crude oil. Chemically, there’s nothing about diluted bitumen the transportation system cannot be prepared to manage. Whether it moves by pipelines or tankers, diluted bitumen meets all the same specifications and behaves the same as other crude oils. Oil floats on water if it has an API gravity above water’s 10 degree API gravity. Diluted bitumen has an API gravity

of 20-22 degrees. Any type of oil spilled in water, eventually “weathers” and can be driven below the surface by waves or currents. Diluted bitumen behaves the same way. There have been several scientific studies completed on diluted bitumen. Earlier this year, the federal government released a research study that demonstrated diluted bitumen floats on salt water – even after evaporation and exposure to light. The study was commissioned by Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Natural Resources Canada as part of the government’s plan to implement a world-class prevention,

preparedness and response regime for marine transportation. Results of the study will be used to inform spill responders and help guide more research. Our industry is focused on responsible development of Canada’s resources. We welcome transparency on our safety and environmental performance, based on sound science. As producers, we transport oil with care and attention at all times. We expect all transportation providers to deliver safe services in a responsible manner. Greg Stringham Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers

Canadians deserve a lot better then they’re getting create the jobs for Canadians? Further, how will Mr. Strahl’s government explain the raises in tobacco, liquor, gasoline and many raises in service fees? (All they are is hidden taxes). How does Mr. Strahl explain why a family of four needs $17.02

an hour for a 35 hour work week in 2014? That is a four per cent rise on the $16.37 rate in 2012 and $156 more a month then they had to pay each only two years ago. The fact of the matter is that your government’s inability to reach a balanced budget has caused every

Canadian to be on the hook for around $60,000 individually for our national debt. Last, but not least, Mr. Strahl you ask us if we support the Conservative government’s tax plan for jobs and economic growth. In my case, it is a very loud “NO.” Canadians deserve a

Folks, you know by now that I don’t care for the way our politicians are promising the world for us, but the fact of the matter is that all they’re able to accomplish is to go from one scandal to another and mismanage our tax dollars miserably. To my surprise, Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl sent a propaganda letter trying to explain the Canadian Economic Action Plan, #EAP14. He explains the 2014 Canada Action Plan as: • Keep taxes low on families and businesses, rejecting calls from both the NDP and Liberals hike on taxes • Constrain departmental spending in Ottawa, keeping us on track to balanced budgets in 2015 • Support Canadian priorities such as health care by increasing transfer payments to B.C. to a record $5.8 billion – up 27 per cent since the last Liberal government • Help connect Canadians with available jobs Now I would like to ask Mr. Strahl about the fiasco his government created with the temporary foreign workforce. Does that

Teachers voice concerns about trades program The final BC Supreme Court ruling is still expected regarding class sizes and composition as well. Lowe-Zucchet said that could have a “substantial impact on budgets,” not just in the Fraser-Cascade but around the province. The district is also planning on replacing the director of instruction position, as an assistant superintendent. The position was left vacant when Stan Watchorn took the principalship at Kent elementary in Agassiz in January. Since then, Dr. Karen Nelson, superintendent of schools, has been doing the work of two people. When questioned why they would replace the position during such lean and uncertain times, Nelson answered that she cannot continue to the do the work of two people, and that the district is already one of the leanest in the province. Lowe-Zucchet agreed, saying “I would challenge anyone to come in and find any money in this district.” “The district has been conservative in budget approach to try to ensure that the impacts of the changes in funding and costs do not mean draconian cuts,” Lowe-Zucchet said in her budget overview. Several Hope secondary teachers attended the meeting, and voiced concern over the declining quality of the trades programs there. They,

too, have faced increases in costs for materials, leading to a decline in the ability to purchase new tools. Teacher Shannon Perna said that the trades

program is in dire need of attention, and funding, if they are going to properly prepare students for a job in the trades once they graduate. “If it’s going to be a pri-

ority, it should be a line item (in the budget),” she said. Nelson agreed to meet privately with the trades teachers to go over their wish lists.

Community

Events aim to raise awareness about community forest A new education initiative is underway to create community awareness about forest ecology and forestry management. The Cascade Lower Canyon Community Forest (CLCCF) is hosting a Discovery Night at the Blue Moose on May 27, followed by a summer community forest walk in three of the forest locations (Hope, Yale and Sunshine Valley). The Discovery Night starts at 6:30 p.m., with a presentation by Brian Taylor, board member of the

CLCCF, at 7 p.m. High school presentations for Grade 11 biology students about forest ecology and forestry practices are also slated for the summer. Although a community forest initiative is relatively new to the area, it is not new to British Columbia. The B.C. Ministry of Forests, Land and Natural Resources have released more than 50 community managed forests in B.C. alone since 1998 under the Forest Act. The CLCCF started the application process for a

community forest license back in 2002. The lease was secured in December 2011, with the first logging occurring near Emory Creek late last year. The organization is made up of three partners: Yale First Nations, District of Hope and Fraser Valley Regional District. They form a not-for-profit organization which has secured a 25-year (renewable) lease for the purpose of a community forest. The tenure runs from Flood (10 km west of Hope) to Yale (26 km east of Hope) on both sides of the

Fraser River. This same land was previously forestry tenure, logged by private companies. A community forest is different to usual forest tenure whereby the forest is managed by the community for the benefit of the community. The community is considered a stakeholder and as such has input into the management of the forest. The board encourages conversation with the community because their role is to represent residents. Some people have indicated ar-

eas they wish to conserve, others are interested in the recreational purposes such as the creation of trails. The forest provides long-term community economic development, local employment, improves incentives to consider long-term benefits of sustainable management, protection of drinkable watersheds, landscapes and views and other values that are important to our community. Aside from local employment, all of the profit goes back into the community by

way of community grants. As logging began last year, some of the first grants were awarded. Hope Mountain Centre received a grant to provide the high school education program, and Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee received funding for their education programs as well as the GOGRIZZ phone line which provides important data to the ministry and public. For more information about the community forest, visit www.clccf.ca.

BARRY STEWART / THE STANDARD

Anthony Loewen of Hope beats Sts’ailes player Brent Antone to the ball in Saturday’s rain-filled game at the Sts’ailes Youth Soccer Tournament. Loewen and his brother Tre, as well as Yvon McKay, played for the Sto:lo U-21 team that placed fourth in the seven-a-side tournament. McKay scored three goals and was named to the tournament all-star team. About a dozen Hope children and youth took part in the age five to 21 event, playing on Sto:lo, Chawathil and Seabird teams.

Hope Standard Thursday, May 8, 2014 A15

Local hockey player represents Team B.C. at nationals Barry Stewart Hope Standard

“They were big and strong and fast-moving and we were small and fast-moving,” said coach Joe Quewezance of the gold medal final that his Team BC boys played against Team Saskatchewan at the Canadian Aboriginal Hockey Championship, last Saturday. Who would prevail? Seventeen-year-old left-winger Dyllan James, of Dogwood Valley, had tried out for the team last year and made it to the final round of cuts — but this April he was selected to the 20-player roster, from 110 tryouts. “We had a camp at 100 Mile House from Friday to Sunday,” said James, a Grade 11 student at Hope secondary. “We were split into five teams and played five games.” With that many players vying for 20 spots, it could be difficult to stand out in the crowd. Some players revert to wearing unique-coloured gloves or helmets — but James chose to keep it simple. “Play hard and the coach will notice you,” he said, adding, “I had a good feeling that I would be chosen.” “Dyllan tried out last year,” recalled coach Quewezance (pronounced CUE zahnce). “Lots of kids try out and they just need an extra year to improve. He improved a lot! “Everyone can skate, at that level,” he said, “but it comes down to strength. Dyllan played very well for us in Kahnawake. He worked very hard… our hardest worker over there — and he was consistent.” The selected team had one practice in 100 Mile House, then met again at the Richmond Oval for a practice before flying out to Quebec for a week of hockey. James’ mom, Vanessa, flew out a few days later to watch the games and visit Montreal with the team. “Pretty much all of the provinces had a team,” said Dyllan, “except there was Team Atlantic for the Maritimes and Team North for the territories. “We were in a pool with Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Team Atlantic and we had three round-robin games and a quarter and semi-final before the final.” Saskatchewan had been seeded fifth of the eight teams and B.C. was seeded first, on the strength of their first-ever goldmedal win last year. “In the quarter-final, we beat Team Atlantic 7-2, I believe,” said James, who recorded a goal and two assists at the tournament. “Then in the semi-final against Manitoba, we beat them in a shoot-out, 3-2.” The win placed B.C. against Saskatchewan, a team with a history of six championships in the last seven years. B.C. had beaten them 3-0 in the first game of the roundrobin but Quewezance said, “I just knew we were going to have to play them again. “In the final, our team got tired and we were making some bad plays,” he recalled. “That even goes back to the Manitoba game, in the semi-final. “Saskatchewan scored first, then we tied it, and then they scored again. “It was 2-1, going into the third period and we put on a surge and tied it up, a couple of minutes in,” said Quewezance. “But we let in a bad third goal and it kind of deflated us.” Another Saskatchewan goal and a late empty-netter sealed the 5-2 win for the prairie team — which celebrated double gold with their girls’ team. Coach Quewezance expressed high hopes for the 2015 version of Team B.C., with 14 of this year’s players eligible to return. “Hopefully, Dyllan will come back even bigger and stronger next year,” said Quewezance.

Dyllan James of Hope helped his Team B.C. to a second-place finish at the Canadian Aboriginal Hockey Championships at Kahnawake, Quebec last week. James, who played on Chilliwack’s Midget A-1 squad last season, was selected from 110 tryouts at 100 Mile House in April.
