Dairy workers fired after abuse video released Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Eight workers from the Kooyman dairy farm in Chilliwack have been fired in the wake of allegations of animal cruelty. Video footage from the dairy operation spurred SPCA to launch an investigation, and they were at the Chilliwack Cattle Sales farm on Friday. Jeff Kooyman, one of the owners of the family-run farm, told The Progress the family is “devastated and deeply saddened” by what has come to light. The family runs the largest dairy farm in Canada. The video features graphically violent scenes of a man striking a cow and another where a cow was kicked in the head after it got stuck on a milking parlour. “The footage is not pretty. That’s not who we are. We are devastated and deeply saddened to think some of our animals might have been harmed in this way,” Kooyman said. It happened on the night shift at the farm, which is one of three daily milking sessions. “These alleged actions in no way reflect the farming and animal care standards practised by our family or by the dairy industry. “As a farming family we are committed to providing the best care for our animals and have zero tolerance for animal abuse,” said the dairy farmer. He said he could barely watch the video of several scenes over a month. “It was horrifying and we are shocked,” he said. “We consider what we saw totally unacceptable.” The dairy farm on Prairie Central has 3,500 head of cattle and 25 to 30 employees, and it’s run by seven Kooyman sons. BC SPCA officials say that all eight employees involved have been suspended pending the results of the investigation.  They have since been fired. “On June 2, the BC SPCA received an undercover video from the non-profit group Mercy for Animals Canada that showed the employees using chains, canes, rakes, their booted feet and their fists to viciously whip, punch, kick and beat the dairy cows, including downed and trapped cows who could not escape Continued: FARM/ p6

Allegations of cruelty unleash storm of outrage Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Cruelty allegations at a Chilliwack dairy farm have led to a torrent of commentary on the subject of abusive treatment of animals from across the continent. Dairy industry reps say they have been cooperating fully with the BC SPCA investigation. “Within the B.C. dairy industry we have a high level of animal care, and as the representative organization of British Columbian dairy farmers, we wish to express our extreme sadness and concern around this incident,” said Dave Taylor, chair of the BC Dairy Association.

The footage has given the industry a black eye, and officials are shaken. “Organizationally we have a zero tolerance policy around these issues and we feel it vital to assert that this abuse is in no way common practice in our industry,” said Taylor. “We are in complete support of the BC SPCA and will continue to be closely involved in this investigation, assisting in any way necessary.” The group whose member took the footage at the farm at different intervals over a month with a hidden camera is called Mercy for Animals Canada. The images are nothing short

of shocking, they say. The footage is from the Chilliwack Cattle Sales farm, owned by the Kooyman family. The dairy farm supplies milk to Saputo-owned Dairyland. Mercy For Animals Canada is praising BC SPCA this week for “its swift and decisive action” in pursuing charges against eight dairy workers. After reviewing the footage, professors of animal science Drs. Bernard Rollin and William Wailes said in a joint statement: “Never have we seen such outright sadistic pleasure taken by workers in animal suffering, including gratuitous shocking of the cows.” Mercy For Animals Canada is

now calling on Saputo to adopt meaningful animal welfare guidelines, including zero tolerance for kicking, punching, and beating cows; procedures to ensure the proper care and transportation of sick, injured, and downed animals; and a requirement that its suppliers install video monitoring systems that live stream to the Internet to help prevent malicious abuse. “The cows on this dairy factory farm experience nothing but fear, violence, and deprivation at the hands of sadistic animal abusers,” said Twyla Francois, director of investigations for Mercy For Animals Canada. “This investigation Continued: ABUSE/ p6

Cyrus Centre will be ‘more than’ a youth shelter Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Renovations are about to start on a building downtown that will eventually shelter homeless youth at Cyrus Centre Chilliwack. “It’s a really exciting time for us right now,” says Cyrus Centre executive director Les Talvio. “The goal is for us to be open at the beginning of September.” They are in the midst of planning the layout and operations for a four-bed youth facility. Homeless youth, or those at risk of homelessness, will be given temporary stays in the one-storey building. “We want people to know Cyrus Centre will be more than a youth shelter. It’s going to be about

restoring families whenever possible. We’ll be letting the youth know about the abundance of community resources that are out there.” Despite a slightly rocky entry into the community, with controversy over the first location they looked at in a commercial building across the street, the Cyrus Centre project for Chilliwack is about to pick up steam. A location has been secured and a lease agreement signed at the former Family Place location on Wellington Avenue. Officials have hired a contractor to complete some relatively minor renovations, and they take possession on July 15. Cyrus officials determined that an emergency youth shelter was

sorely needed in Chilliwack, as evidenced by the recent homeless count that showed a high proportion of youth among the street population. Volunteers with the annual survey effort counted more young people than ever out of 77 in Chilliwack who said they were homeless. “There were more youth counted in Chilliwack than any of the other Fraser Valley communities,” said Talvio. “So it sounds like our timing was just right.” Kids get a meal, a bed, a shower and a place to do laundry at the Cyrus Centre in Abbotsford, and they’ll have similar amenities in the one planned to open here.

Mini ‘We Day’ says thanks to Chilliwack schools Katie Bartel The Progress Chilliwack’s We Create Change Tour was mini in every aspect except passion. That was giant. Several Chilliwack students started this week with front row seats to the We Create Change Tour on Monday at Mt. Slesse middle school. The multimedia event, put on by Free The Children, was essentially a mini We Day celebration to thank Chilliwack’s “We Schools” for their fundraising efforts throughout the year. Mt. Slesse was one of 90 stops on the 10-week, Canada-wide tour. Featuring performances by Canadian pop-rock band Neverest, and appearances by 11-year-old blogger and activist Hannah Alper, and double amputee Spencer West, the intimate affair was full of upbeat songs, giant selfies, motivational speeches, and inspirational slide shows. One hour that few of the 600 watching would forget – all because they collectively joined forces this year to raise money for those most in need. Dubbed Chilliwack’s “We Schools,” 13 schools spent the year collecting their pennies, and encouraging others to do the same, for Free The Children’s build a school campaign. The goal was to raise $10,000, which would build a school large enough for 55 students in Africa. In total, 10,908 was raised. Several students from Mt. Slesse also travelled to Kenya over spring break and physically helped build a school with Free The Children. “I think what’s so cool here in Chilliwack is that they’re known as the ‘We Schools’ and that they collectively came together to raise over $10,000 to build this school,” said Spencer West, Free The Children inspirational speaker, following the

show. “It’s not very often we see an entire district come together like that and create change as a whole. I think that’s pretty powerful.” Chilliwack’s We Schools began collaborating following last fall’s We Day in Vancouver where every school in the province was challenged to join Free The Children’s build a school campaign. For some schools in Chilliwack, though, the challenge of raising $10,000 solo was daunting. By collaborating with multiple schools, it meant the goal was attainable and that all schools that wanted to could be a part of the change. They didn’t do it for recognition, but rather because it was the right thing to do. “All of our We Schools have students who are passionate about

making change at the local and global level,” said Mt. Slesse teacher Sandi Rae. “Today was all about their efforts.” Their goal was achieved, but their work isn’t yet done. One of the main purposes of the We Create Change tour was to recharge students to continue being the change. West listed off staggering statistics: 57 million people are denied education every day; 123 million youth are illiterate; 76 million of those illiterate are girls. While education is often taken for granted in North America, “there are so many kids, just like you guys, who want an opportunity to go to school, to learn to read and write,” but have multiple barriers standing in their way, said West.

had both legs amputated below the pelvis at five years old due to a genetic disease. He was told he’d never sit up, never walk, and probably not be a functioning member of society. But he proved doctors wrong then and continues to do so. He’s become a renowned speaker for Free The Children; has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro; and walked 300 km with his hands from Edmonton to Calgary – all with the purpose of bettering the lives of those in need. If he can do it, so can Chilliwack. “This does not end today,” Spee, lead singer of Neverest, announced to the cheering crowd before him. “Change continues on through your actions.” For more information on the tour, visit the website www.freethechildren.com/wecreatechangetour.

Braidwood and Joe Pringle. A fifth D-Day veteran, Chilliwack’s Walter Georgeson was in Normandy attending 70th anniversary events there. In Chilliwack, the ceremony was marked by a flyby from a CC-115 Buffalo search and rescue aircraft out of Comox. The plane, flying at an altitude of 500 feet, simulated a parachute drop to honour the 450 Canadians who parachuted inland before dawn. Members of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion – including Braidwood and Pringle – jumped from an altitude of about 600 feet. Two members of Chilliwack’s Canadian Militar y Education Centre, Mark Ivens and Dean Fraser, wore the traditional uniforms of the parachute battalion to mark that involvement. In all, 359 Canadians died on the first day of the invasion. Another 5,000 were killed in the subsequent Battle of Normandy, which ended in late July. Overall, approximately 45,000 Canadians died during the Second World War.

QUESTION: 

What can I do if I witness someone losing a tooth (getting it knocked out)?   ANSWER: Most of us are fortunate enough not to have witnessed or experienced an accident such as this. Luckily these situations rarely occur; however, if they do, it is important to know what to do. An encouraging fact is that many ‘lost’ teeth can be replanted with a good long term prognosis. Some of the factors that will help this prognosis are under our control.  The first and most important thing to remember is DO NOT touch the root. If your tooth is laying on the ground, pick it up by the crown (typically the crown is the whiter, shorter part of the tooth; the root is normally long, and yellowish in color).  Place the tooth in your mouth in the pouch by the cheek. If you have access to milk, place your tooth into a jar full of white milk and cover the lid.  • Do not rub any debris off the tooth. • If the tooth is still partly in the socket, keep it there. • Immediately proceed to your dentist with your tooth (it would be a good idea to phone the office before arriving so they can prepare as time is of the essence). The dentist will make every effort to reposition, and immobilize the tooth into the socket.  There will be follow up appointments made to evaluate, and further treat this tooth.

mals.”  SPCA officials were on the property last week along with respected dairy cattle expert, Dr. James Reynolds, as part of an on-going investigation into animal management practices at Chilliwack Cattle Sales, which is currently cooperating with the investigation, Moriarty said. “Animal care is of primary importance on our farm,” he said. “We have been working with the BC SPCA and regulatory authorities and will continue to do so throughout the investigation.” They’re taking decisive steps. “We will be taking any and all steps necessary to assure that

no such incident takes place on our family farm in the future,” Kooyman pledged. He’s never been through anything like this. “We were shocked.” They have a supervised monitoring system that is supposed to prevent such incidents, but were unaware. “We don’t know why the employee who shot this footage didn’t come to us with this.” They will be installing a surveillance camera system for the continued safety of their animals, along with more intensive training for farm workers. “I’d love to take this month back. I show up

Dr. David Dykshorn and Dr. Rich Vanderwal of Abbotsford Veterinary Clinic regularly visit the farm and monitor animal health. “We have had a working relationship with the Kooymans for over 20 years and can speak to their integrity and care for their animals,” Dr. Dykshorn said in the press release. “Animal abuse is unacceptable on any stage and we actively work with the Kooyman family to ensure the highest level of animal welfare on their farm.” Media were touring

who examined the dairy farm footage stated: “Individual acts of animal cruelty should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law but the industry must also be held to account for ensuring the humane treatment of animals.” Following the release of footage showing employees abusing cows, the Chilliwack Cattle Company is taking immediate action to ensure their animals remain safe. “As a company we were not given a chance to view the footage until it aired on television tonight,” said Kooyman. “Now that it has aired we are taking immediate action to terminate all employees involved as well as take several steps to ensure that this type of abuse never happens again.” Changes include longer periods of training for new employees, as well as all current employees will be receiving thorough animal welfare training. The company will also be installing closed circuit cameras to ensure round the clock security for the cows. “We deeply apologize for what happened,” added Kooyman. “We cannot stress further how much the actions of these young men have shocked our family.

Little Mountain students raise their voices for Canada friends, sunbathe on a beach, go to school. Freedom to live without war. Freedom to live in peace. “Oh my goodness,

there were so many things, mountains, rivers, multiple languages, just being able to go out on the street and play,” said Krol of the ideas that flowed. “The kids really liked their freedom.” Over a two-month period, Krol took the young patriot’s words and matched them to the melody in her head. Once the lyrics were in place, the students added various movements and hand gestures to accompany the music. It was a project that wasn’t easy by any means, and turned into more work than Krol had initially envisioned, but was well worth the effort. “The kids loved it,” said Krol. “They loved having their own song, an original that nobody had sung before.” The contest fulfilled several areas of the Grade 4 curriculum, including social studies, writing, music and presentation skills. But more important, it made the class part of history. “I don’t think that’s quite hit them yet,” said Cuervo. “I don’t think they’ve realized the impact this song could have.” By winning, the school will receive $1,000 that will be used to purchase a new piano. As well, a scheduled visit from Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon is planned for the final day of school. “This is going to be a huge memory for our kids to meet somebody that high up in politics,” said Cuervo. The Sing Me A Song contest is part of the lead up to Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations in 2017. Schools, community choirs and amateur musical groups were invited to write and sing an original song inspired by Canada’s 150 years. All submissions had to have a minimum of 15 voices and were judged on musicality, spirit and originality.

Pointsof View

The Chilliwack Progress is published by Black Press Group Ltd., every Tuesday and Thursday at 45860 Spadina Ave., Chilliwack. The Progress is a member of the Canadian Circulation’s Audit Board, Canadian Community Newspaper Association, British Columbia and Yukon Community Newspaper Association and B.C. Press Council.

A shared disgust Disturbing. Horrific. Sickening. Those are only a few of the adjectives that can describe images in a video that has sparked animal abuse investigations at a Chilliwack dairy farm. And the words weren’t coming only from animal rights advocates. They were shared by farmers, and dairy industry officials. Release of the video created an immediate storm. Social media sites lit up as the graphic material began to circulate. Among the first to react was the Kooyman family, owners of Chilliwack Cattle Sales – the largest dairy farm in Canada and the site of where the abuse is alleged to have taken place. “That’s not who we are. We are devastated and deeply saddened to think some of our animals might have been harmed in this way,” said Jeff Kooyman, one of the farm owners. (See story, page 1.) But those early assurances got little sympathy. If eight employees are guilty of abuse, website commentators argued, the farm owners should be held accountable, and the entire dairy industry should be

under review. Indeed, the farm has to take a close look at its command and control structure – something the owners have already agreed will take place. They’ve also said they plan to install cameras to monitor the barns. However, the simple fact is that the abuse seen in that video is not the norm. It can’t be. A dairy farmer’s livelihood depends on the welfare of his or her animals. If they are distressed, ill or injured they won’t produce the quality or quantity of milk necessary. Dairy farmers are also human. The vast majority have empathy for the animals in their care, and treat them with kindness and respect. Obviously, there are some in our world who don’t share that empathy. And that is perhaps the most shocking thing about this incident: That there are some among us who can inflict such pain with so little care. To them, we are right in expressing our collective horror for their actions, and demand they be held accountable for them. But we also must understand, dairy farmers share that horror. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

B.C. V IEWS

Natural gas: the other pipeline showdown VICTORIA – The prospect of piping diluted heavy oil across northern B.C. and loading it in tankers has generated significant genuine protests, as well as bursts of celebrity nonsense, rent-a-stunts and instant online petitions. Natural gas pipelines and export terminals, on the other hand, are generally accepted by the public. Premier Christy Clark staked her political future on developing liquefied natural gas exports, and pulled off an upset election win that not even Clark expected. Most of the heat she’s taken on that is focused on her extravagant predictions that LNG will pay off the debt and maybe even get rid of our sales tax. But as I predicted 18 months ago, there’s a shift in the target of professional protesters to natural gas. A reminder of that awaited

me on a morning walk to the B.C. legislature during the last week of the May session. At the front gate stood a young woman in a bikini top and shorts, her skin smeared with a dark material, presumably to simulate crude oil. She waved to passing traffic, stretching a banner proTom moting a website FLETCHER for the “Unist’ot’en camp.” Legislature security intervened to clear the entry walkway before I could ask the protester who was paying her. The fundraising website she was promoting hadn’t been updated since March, but this isn’t the first time this camp has been promoted here. Chevron’s Burnaby oil refin-

ery was also targeted May 30 by protesters who locked themselves to a gate with bicycle locks and chains. They also cited the Unist’ot’en camp and their aim to stop the Pacific Trails pipeline. The camp came to my attention last summer, when it was promoted by one of Victoria’s chronic anarchist protesters, a woman who goes by the name Zoe Blunt. Blunt and other southern protesters documented their trip north to support the camp’s stated goal, to stop the Pacific Trails gas pipeline, planned to supply the Chevron-Apache liquefied natural gas terminal near Kitimat. The camp is on Crown land near Smithers. It was established at the end of a one-lane bridge by two members of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation. While that community’s elected council maintains a respectful relationship with the

The Chilliwack

Progress

B.C. government, the splinter group that backs the camp has confrontation in mind. The Unist’ot’en website is a jumble of demands and claims that alternates between the Pacific Trails gas pipeline and Enbridge’s Northern Gateway proposal. Like the woman at the legislature, if you want it to be against oil, it’s against oil. A clearer picture of this situation is provided by a relentless blogger named Greg Renouf, who specializes in investigating protesters across Canada. His blog, www.genuinewitty.com, should be required reading for reporters who are presented with slick banners and posturing protesters. Renouf follows the money as well as the familiar faces who pop up at protest after protest. In April he reported that the increasingly militant Council of Canadians is supporting the Unist’ot’en camp,

along with what he describes as “a host of NGOs, unions, militant anarchists and professional protesters.” They include Harsha Walia, who organized violent protests against the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Meanwhile in the real world, TransCanada Corp. announced last week its subsidiary NovaGas Transmission has signed an agreement with Chevron and Apache for a gas pipeline that will connect to Pacific Trails. It’s one of four gas pipelines TransCanada has in development for what is planned to be the biggest industrial investment in B.C. history. They can smear it with oil, but gas is the protest industry’s latest target. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

“The procedure performed on my wife.”

- Dr John F Blaylock

Fed up with all sides in labour dispute An open letter to the government of BC, BCTF, and BCPSEA, This won’t be news to you. The system is broken. As a parent of five children who are currently part of the public education system in some way, I know first-hand it is an imperfect system of education. And I believe that the bargaining tactics on both sides are ridiculous. I understand that there are always two sides to every issue. I know money has to come from somewhere and no matter what we do, we have limitations on that. I understand many of the classroom issues that exist. They were there when I was in school. I have seen both of my parents struggle as teachers in this system to deal with these many issues and try to support the children in their classrooms. I have experienced the frustrations as a parent dealing with the inadequacies that exist. My two oldest children are in high school and one is graduating this year. In fact, tonight is convocation. I expect that will be run by administration, just as awards night was because the teachers aren’t allowed to. Some of the teachers would love to do it and whether you blame it on the

union or the government it’s all the same. The kids are the ones truly suffering. Having a few activities cancelled and other things changed have been a minor inconvenience, but last night when I heard that there would be a third strike day and vote on a full scale walkout, I felt I had reached my limit. My oldest is 18 and wants to finish high school and move onto other things. Jeopardizing his exams and preparation time goes over the line! And if you think a tantrum like this goes over well with me, you’ve got to be joking. I know tantrums when I see one. I have five spirited children and this is classic. Grow up! When are we going to get people sitting down and really trying to do something to solve the problems? Pouring in more money is never the full answer. Why don’t we consider looking at places where they are having success? Let’s get educated on what could actually make a difference. During my children’s time in the public system, we have experienced at least three strikes in some form. None of them have made a difference. Both cuts and more funding, none of that makes a difference. Some real serious

change is necessary. And to the union, if you think that punishing children and parents until they start complaining is going to give you a voice, maybe some people will back you, but there are a lot of parents who don’t! We are annoyed, frustrated and think you are playing nasty. And don’t be surprised by more parents pulling their kids out to go to private schools or homeschool because you know what? They are tired of garbage like this and want something that works for their children. But just maybe that will solve the problem. If you lose enough students, the government could afford those pay raises you want and there might be smaller classrooms. Oh, but wait, all those extra teachers we won’t need are going to get laid off and then they aren’t going to be too happy with you either. So, to all involved, get back to the table and be serious about doing something to improve education. Be open to new ideas instead of insanely sticking to what has always been done before. Please be willing to help our children gain an education that they deserve. Colleen Porteous, Chilliwack

Time to rethink ‘corporate approach’ I don’t know Molly Armstrong but I sure admire her (Rousing your inner momma bear, Progress, June 6). She is “Momma Bear” and I agree with her suggested approach to the teachers’ strike. I also encourage her to get the “Papa Bears” involved as well. We are not dealing with humans when we deal with the provincial government, we are dealing with cyphers. They have a totally corporate atti-

tude, despite the fact that they are called the Liberal party. They are about as liberal as Mussolini. They are thinking in terms of dollars and cents, profit and loss, and someone in a suit has told them to keep pushing the teachers until they break. It makes fiscal sense to them no matter what the outcome.  However, teachers are not cyphers and neither are the children they teach. They are real,

live human beings. The teachers have devoted their lives to educating our children, and there is nothing more important than that. How can you put a pricetag on the future of British Columbia? How can you deny special needs children their place in the sun by class sizes that are way too big? How can you short change the future leaders of this province by denying the teachers a decent wage and a effi-

cient workplace.   Yes, let’s all get together with Molly “Momma Bear” and roar. Roar so loud that the suits in Victoria will hear the voices of the people for a change, instead of a political agenda. Mama Bears and Papa Bears unite. Let’s change the way things work in this province and have real democracy for a change.  Let’s ROAR.  Jerry Riches,  Chilliwack

Not fair to compare all public servants I have great difficulty in understanding Cori-Anne Klassen’s explanation comparing public servants’ pay (Paycheques and public servants, Progress, June 6) I have not seen a teacher in Canada wearing a gun every shift, going into harm’s way at any time,

as we witnessed in Moncton this week.   Even nurses who do fantastic work like most teachers do, have security guards at hospital or they call police to assist them.  It is just not fair to compare.  Let’s just pay them each for the actual hard work they do.

I am a taxpayer as well as a retired RCMP member. RCMP members cannot strike for a smaller client base, fewer calls for service or for pay and benefits and are not the highest paid police force in Canada either. Jake Bouwman, Chilliwack

She did not, however, respond to how the various graduation ceremonies would be managed without teacher support. This week is the third week teachers have been engaged in stage two of job action, implementing one-day-a-week rotating strikes across the province. Teachers were scheduled to vote on whether or not to implement stage 3, a full stage walkout, Tuesday evening.

Cyrus Centre CYRUS from page 3 Cyrus officials were first approached by local reps last year to make a “community table” presentation explaining what they do and the details of their particular model, to see if it might be appropriate for Chilliwack. Within weeks of that initial meeting with Chilliwack reps, Talvio said they were asked about the prospect of running a similar youth shelter here. Now that dream is coming to fruition, in less than a year. The way the Chilliwack community actively collaborates has been particularly helpful with this project, Talvio said. Everyone on their team has been very impressed by the forces of synergy coming to help things move along in Chilliwack. “The community really comes together and works together to provide sensible solutions.” So they’re ramping up for the fall. There will be four shelter beds, a multi-purpose room, offices and counselling space, showers and more. “Now that we’re getting ready to open our doors, we need the community to rally around us in support,” he said. A special fundraiser for both Cyrus Centre Chilliwack and Cyrus Centre Abbotsford called A Leap of Faith is set for July 10, explained Leah Froese, manager of the Chilliwack facility. Supporters will be collecting pledges and sky diving out of the plane, with supporters waiting below at the drop zone, located at 5112 Gladwin Road. So far seven jumpers have confirmed their participation. It’s their fifth year of the Leap of Faith event in Abbotsford. “All funds raised by Chilliwack jumpers will go to the Cyrus Centre in Chilliwack. So there might be some friendly competition between the two communities over who can raise the most,” said Talvio. For more details about the event, contact leah@ cyruscentre.com or leave a message at 604-795-5773. A barbecue lunch will be available by donation at the event. jfeinberg@theprogress.com

Progress Jennifer

Feinberg

Inez to headline Canada Day

Michael and Jutta Schulz from Rosedale is showing a series of photographic images printed on metal at the Chilliwack Museum in an exhibit called Spectrum from June 21 to July 31. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Main colours of the spectrum in new show Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The bright colours and hues in the photographs printed on metal become deeper and richer because of it. That is what attracted a Rosedale couple to the printing technique that’s become their signature style. Michael and Jutta Schulz present Spectrum, a new exhibit of about 40 abstract images in the Chilliwack Museum, from June 21 to July 31. “We named it Spectrum because we wanted to display the seven main colours. Since

it’s light and shadows that define photographs, we wanted to show off the colours,” said Michael. They got into the metal processing of their work after seeing an ad in photography magazine for free prints made from photos. “When the sample prints arrived, we were hooked,” he says. “The colours were so true and vibrant on metal. It is very intense.” They offer different finishes to those purchasing the prints: satin, glossy, or high gloss. “It makes the photo seem very realistic and it adds depth.” Michael and his wife Jutta are self-taught photographers who

particularly enjoy nature and that’s where we get most of their subject matter. The photography morphed from being a casual hobby to a real passion for the German-born couple. “Over time we’ve developed a different way of seeing things,” he says. They enjoy exploring different genres and techniques, like his penchant for using an infrared filter to captures the invisible light, while Jutta’s experiments with ICM or intentional camera movement offer specific effects. The exhibition is open during museum hours, Monday to

15

Friday from 9 am - 4:30 p.m. Their images are on display on the first floor and are all for sale, first-offs only. “We also make it a point that all our works are ‘1 of 1’ and will not be reproduced in any way.” They only make one copy of each print to make sure. “We don’t want to get into mass production,” he adds. “We want to keep it unique.” The show runs at the Chilliwack Museum from Saturday, June 21 to July 31 and the opening day artists’ reception is on June 21 from noon to 2 p.m. Admission is free on opening day and $3 after that.

Chilliwack’s big Canada Day Celebration is ready to go. The stage show puts the spotlight on local country artist Todd Richard and headliner Inez Jasper. The 2014 community event on Tuesday, July 1 is presented by Chilliwack Community Arts Council with 98.5 The Drive and the City of Chilliwack on the grounds of the Chilliwack Landing again this year. The day starts off with a pancake breakfast at Evergreen Hall served up by the Sardis Kiwanis and served by RCMP in Red Serge. Music by the Chilliwack Community Band and proceeds from the breakfast go to the Special Olympians. You know there’s fun in store for families when you spot the bouncy castles covering the infield while the rest of the grounds will see a range of booths set up by local clubs and nonprofits. Take a relaxing ride on the Rotary Train or try out the Fanboni. There is even an opportunity to dunk a celebrity for charity. There will be free skating at the Prospera Centre from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., free swimming at the Leisure Centre from 2 to 5 p.m., and competitions at the Skate Board Park.  The event is capped off with a spectacular fireworks show at Townsend Park at starting at 10 pm.

Inez Jasper will be joined by Todd Richard at this year’s Canada Day.

Dad gets to be king of his castle at least one day during the year. Come mid-June, children near and far scramble for ideas to treat their fathers to a special day and award him with gifts for being a role model, provider and confidante. Father’s Day activities should be centered around Dad’s interests. With that in mind, the following are some ideas to honor Dad or another special man in your life. Sports Sunday: If Dad is a sports fan, his idea of spending a fun-filled afternoon very well may be cheering on his favorite players. Whether your father enjoys golf, tennis, baseball, soccer, or another sport like hunting or fishing, chances are there is a television broadcast on that you can watch together. Otherwise, you can surprise Dad by purchasing tickets to a sporting event and making a day of it. Lake bound: A relaxing day at the lake may be the perfect way to spend Father’s Day. Dad can enjoy the entire family while sitting back in his lawn chair. Pack a picnic lunch with his favorite foods and a cold beverage, and Dad may just say this was his best celebration yet. Adventure seeker: If yours is a father who enjoys living on the edge, a Father’s Day activity

built around action and adventure should be a winner. Take Dad base jumping, rock climbing, scuba diving, or race car driving. Any of these activities is bound to get Dad’s adrenaline pumping. R&R: Dad’s idea of the perfect Father’s Day may be an afternoon free of obligations and deadlines. A relaxing day in the yard swimming laps in the pool or hitting a few grounders to your waiting baseball mitt may be all the excitement he needs. Toss a few steaks on the grill to give Father’s Day a truly perfect ending. Impromptu party: Some dads like to be the center of attention.

A Father’s Day party thrown in his honor, complete with friends and family, can be an entertaining way to spend the day. If you are worried about interrupting others’ Father’s Day plans, host the gathering on the Saturday before Father’s Day and let Dad be the life of the party. Finger foods, barbecue, a limited list of cocktails and other beverages and some background music are all that you need to host a festive function. Plan a Father’s Day celebration with your dad in mind. Cater to his favorite activities and opt for entertainment that he will enjoy.

Orange-Ginger Baby Back Ribs

Ingredients: 5 pounds baby back ribs

Directions: Preheat the grill to medium and turn down to low. Prepare ribs for grilling by removing the membrane from the underside of the ribs. Prepare several foil envelopes and place 2 strips of ribs into each envelope, with 1/4 cup of water and seal tightly. Cook

for 2 to 21/2 hours on low (300*F) with the lid closed. Check the thermometer on the front of the grill lid frequently and adjust the cooking temperature accordingly. This may require turning one or two burners off and cooking indirectly. To prepare the sauce: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and set aside until the ribs are ready to remove from the foil. Gently heat the sauce on the side burner for 10 to 15 minutes before using. Carefully remove the ribs from the foil and place on grids. Baste generously with sauce, and grill for 10 minutes per side, leaving the lid open, turning several times, and basting with sauce after each turn. Heat remaining sauce to a boil and then allow it to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve on the side as a dipping sauce.

Time to sell? What is your house worth today? When you decide to sell your home, your next decision is key to the sale - “How much should I ask?” If you ask too little for your home, you could lose money. Asking too much in today’s active market of competitively priced homes, could cause your home to sit indefinitely. Your Realtor wants to sell your home as soon as possible, for the best price. Your Realtor will use a Comparative Market Analysis to determine the price for your home. If the market analysis is done correctly, you will get the maximum amount - and a timely sale. If buyers fail to surface after a certain period of time on the market, they may advise you to reduce the asking price. If you are serious about selling your home, you should take your Realtor’s advice. A house is only worth what someone will pay for it, even though the owner, the bank, and the Realtor all have their own opinions about the “market value” of a home. In other words, no sale ever takes place until the buyers agree with the price. How can sellers arrive at the maximum “fair” price that buyers are willing to pay? Buyers (and appraisers) make their decision based on comparisons. While shopping for a home, buyers will visit many similar homes in their price range and measure the features of each one against the price. They decide which house offers them the maximum value for the price. Buyers do not expect a home to be a “steal” or dramatically under-priced, but they do expect it

to be a fair value. Sellers must determine the value that their home offers in order to arrive at the right price. The Realtor will advise the sellers what buyers should be willing to pay for their home, but the asking price is set by the seller. Sellers often start out with an unrealistic opinion of their home’s value, and there is often a strong temptation to go with a Realtor who says what you want to hear. A good Realtor will back up their opinion of your home’s value with hard data. The Realtor should give you information about homes that are currently on the market, and recent selling prices of similar properties. The most heroic marketing efforts won’t work on a property that is over-priced. Even if you find a buyer who is willing to pay more than your home it worth, the sale will fall apart when the appraisal comes in lower than the agreed-upon price. Realtors earn their reputations by helping people find homes that they love. When deciding which homes to show prospective buyers, their decision will be based on whether the home will meet their needs and priced at fair market value within their buyer’s budget.

Chilliwack is not my hometown, but it feels like it is. I was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan and spent most of my growing up on a dairy farm. After graduation I moved to Calgary for 15 years, then my husband was transferred to the coast and we made our home in Surrey. I moved out here as a single mom with my three kids almost 12 years ago. We loved Chilliwack immediately and my family has had a very happy life here. So I feel like I’m well qualified to work with new people coming to the area, as well as those who have been here forever, because I believe in this city. I think I’ve found a little piece of paradise and the wisest people know this to be true. Give me a call anytime for your complimentary market evaluation or if you know someone moving to town, pass along my name, because Chilliwack is my hometown now.

Call out to blood donors Canadian Blood Services is in great need of donors for this Friday’s clinic and is hoping people will roll up their sleeves to help. In recognition of National Blood Donor Week, CBS is looking to fill more than 50 appointments for this Friday’s blood donor clinic in Chilliwack, which is less than 40 per cent full. As a result of two clinics being cancelled in April due to the measles outbreak, some clinics in June currently have very few appointments filled. Canadian Blood Services is experiencing a notable decrease in donations heading into the summer months.  Although donations traditionally dip heading into June, the national inventory is the lowest it has been in more than five years at this time of year.   “Every donation counts,” says Mark Donnison, vice president of donor relations. One blood donation can help to save up to three lives. Friday’s clinic takes place from noon to 5 p.m. at Broadway Church (46611 Maple Ave.). To book an appointment, download the GiveBlood app, visit  blood.ca or call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283).

BCHL curbing roster shuffle The BCHL’s annual general meeting passed last week with little big news. The playoff format will stay the same, and the league is still committed to the junior A supplement, a document which determines discipline on dangerous hits and fighting. Chilliwack Chiefs president Glen Ringdal was named the league’s 2014 executive of the year, and he’s a big reason the BCHL Showcase will return to Chilliwack for a third straight year, running Sept. 19-21 at Prospera Centre. From a hockey ops perspective, Chiefs head coach and general manager Jason Tatarnic was most interested in rule changes around

transactions. The BCHL wants to reduce player movement, and has introduced restrictions to curb deal-happy GMs. “They want the roster you start with to be the one you finish with,” Tatarnic explained. “The goal is to make you more accountable for your roster, which I like.” The major change is a reduction of ‘cards’ from 45 to 35 per team, combined with a transaction cap. A ‘card’ is used when a player is signed by a junior A team. The Chiefs are allowed to carry 22 players on the regular season roster, leaving 23 cards to be spread around. When a player is

signed, that’s a card. When a player is acquired, a card is required, and when a player is traded, that card is gone. At the same time, the league is limiting teams to eight player trades during the regular season. Each player involved in a trade counts towards that number. So for instance, if the Chiefs trade player A for players B, C and D, the team has burned four of those eight transactions. And four cards. “Say I’ve made five transactions from the first day of the season up to Jan. 10,” Tatarnic said. “If I want to make a futures deal with another league, I have to have a transaction

available for each player in the deal.” One other change concerns future trades. Any player who’s dealt as futures can’t play for his original team the following year. So for instance, Shay Laurent was dealt to Coquitlam in the 201213 Phil Zielonka trade deadline deal and found his way back to the Chiefs early the next year. That can’t happen now. “What we’ve found is a lot of those kids never really end up with their new teams,” Tatarnic said. “I believe if you put a player up for trade, then that’s it. You’re trading him.” Get more BCHL AGM info online at bchl.ca

The total prize purse is $150,000. Clapp made his PGA Canada Tour debut in sparkling style at the PC Financial Open, finishing in a tie for second at the Point Grey Golf and Country Club. Despite last weekend’s struggles, he is still fifth on the tour’s money list at $13,530. Get info online at pgatour.com/canada/ en_us.html

Clapp, an instructor at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, was good enough at the start. He carded a oneunder-par 71 in round one and a five-underpar 67 in round two, though he barely survived the cut. His game slipped in the third and fourth rounds, with back to back one-over-par 73s. An uneven final day saw him net birdies on the seventh, 12th and 16 holes. But he bogied four others and hurt himself badly with a double-bogey on the 16th hole. All told, Clapp finished 16 strokes behind the tournament winner,

Chilliwack dumped the Richmond Islanders 9-4 to take bronze. The pitching duo of Mattisen Henrotte and Wiens was outstanding throughout the tourney. Henrotte struck out 15 batters in 13 innings, while Wiens fanned 16 in 16 innings. They were helped by outstanding defence. Emma Brezden was a rock at third base, with Bella Melnuk, Kara Wismer and Kalista Kirkness tracking down balls in the outfield. Soltys, the catcher, kept things calm behind the plate. Shor tstop Veronica Sawatzky was injured for the tournament and could not bat or field. She worked as a pinch runner and led the team in stolen bases with four. Offensive leaders for the tournament were left fielder/first baseman Deanna Tuchscherer and shortstop Allie Thiessen, both batting .500. Galley hit .389, Wiens hit .375 and Soltys hit .333.

Chilliwack’s fastpitch Mayhem wrote a Cinderella story last weekend, finishing third at the Sullivan Park Rep A Girls U-14 Softball Tournament in Surrey. Based on their record, the girls should have been easy pickings for better teams. Winless (0-16) during the regular season, the Mayhem played to form in the first two tourney games, losing to the Surrey Storm 2001 and White Rock Renegades. But a switch was flipped before their third game, and the Mayhem rose up to beat the Surrey Storm 2000. Down 7-4 in the last inning, Chilliwack got extra-base hits from Hank Soltys, Kennedy Galley and Kyra Wiens to escape with an 8-7 win. The Chilliwackians carried on to a playoff rematch against Surrey Storm 2000, winning 5-1. An 11-4 loss to the Delta Heat in a semi-final knocked the Mayhem out of title contention, but they ended on a high note in the bronze medal game.

GW Graham’s varsity football Grizzlies downed Pitt Meadows 21-7 and lost 21-14 to Mission in spring football friendlies last weekend. The locals were led by quarterback Ryan Connelly and running back Brett Westad, both with two touchdowns. Receiver Emerson Smith scored on a 37

yard TD toss from Terrell Sparvier, and Trey Walsh also found the endzone. Billy Hanson, Alex Bannerman and Tristan Davis provided rushing yards behind an outstanding offensive line led by Josh Mander and Elijah Schellenberg. The Grizzlies defense was led by hard-hitting safety Ben Pretty

and linebackers Kirk Kennedy and Tyler Sprott. The defensive line, led by Diego Pineda and Braydon Winger, notched three sacks in the two mini-games. “This varsity team is so deep at so many positions” noted coach Laurie Smith, “Our third and fourth QBs, running backs and

receivers would start on most teams. It’s a very good problem to have.” The Grizzlies next action is a five day team camp in Oregon in July where they will play top teams from Washington, Oregon and Idaho Fall camp opens Aug. 18, ending with exhibition action against AAA Notre Dame.

Referee Steve Kozari and linesman Shane Heyer, both natives of Penticton, are officiating games between the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings. “It goes to show that the BCHL is a great place for officials to start out and go through the development needed to get to the next level,� said BCHL director of officiating Derek Adams. “The guys working in the league today know they’re being watched by evaluators from higher levels of hockey and that they could one day be one of the officials working in the NHL.� See bchl.ca

Philps, Margaret Elizabeth

EVERYONE WELCOME!

(nee Hall) 1918 - 2014

Margaret Philps, treasured wife, mother, grandmother, aunt & friend, passed away June 2 in Chilliwack, with her family by her side. She was predeceased by her beloved husband George (1990) , and her sister Frances ( 2014). She is survived by her daughter Margaret Paulding, (Rick), cherished granddaughters Rebecca & Sarah, and her sisters Muriel Dionne & Myrtle Philps. She leaves behind many dear friends and family members nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces, as well as her life-long friend, Rachel Vallance. Margaret was born in Burnaby in 1918, and attended Edmonds School and Burnaby South High School. She married George Philps in 1941, and was a devoted wife and mother. George returned to school in1963 to study theology, and after his graduation they served together at Gordon Presbyterian Church in Burnaby, where George was the minister from 1966 until 1987. Margaret loved God’s creation, particularly flowers & birds, and one of her favorite pastimes was painting on porcelain. Her family was her greatest joy, and she loved hosting family dinners for all occasions. She had the gift of hospitality, and graciously welcomed family and friends into her home. She gave generously of her time, and loved to shower others with tins of delicious homemade cookies. Her love and encouragement will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Her strong faith in God and her unconditional love for all will leave a legacy for generations to come. Special thanks to Dr. Julia Bright for her excellent medical care over the past several years, and for the kindness shown by Dr. Megan Newcombe & the nurses on 5 North at CGH during the last days of Margaret’s life. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 on Sat. June 14, at Gordon Presbyterian Church, 7457 Edmonds St. Burnaby

Paulsen Phoebe Helen Paulsen (86) went peacefully to be with her Lord June 9, 2014. She is lovingly remembered by her nine surviving children: Karen Krenzler (Elton), Ingrid Peters (Alvin), Marion Wilson (Brian), Larry, Katie, Danny, Susan (Alain), and Shirley; multiple grandchildren and great-grandchildren and a host of wonderful nephews, nieces, former foster children, and international students. She was predeceased by her husband, Ted, son Gordon, and granddaughter Tara. She was the last of seven siblings, and outlived all her in-laws. Phoebe was an amazing woman of incredible strength and tenor. Mother of ten, foster parent to over 80, she also had a daycare in our family home. She focused her life on children and advocacy for ‘the least of these’. Once officially recognized by Grace McCarthy for service to children, Phoebe’s love for children was always evident. In Abbotsford in 1990 she was honoured to be Mother of the Year. Her service to community included President of the Dawson Creek Child Development Centre, President of the Abbotsford Golden K Kiwanis, service to the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast, being a gleaner, and quietly assisting those who needed it most, including the Little Nun, feeding Abbotsford’s homeless. A Memorial Service and reception will be held Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the South Abbotsford MB Church gymnasium, 32424 Huntingdon Road, Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Variety - The Children’s Charity. Tributes and condolences may be left at:
