Instead of bargaining, both the teachers’ union and the government were engaged in a game of ‘he said-she-said’ Monday. Both sides came out swinging with the BC Teachers’ Federation landing the first punch. After an unsuccessful weekend of bargaining between the BCTF and the BC Public School Employers’ Association, BCTF president Jim Iker attacked the government’s bargaining unit, and Christy Clark specifically, for “squandering” an opportunity to get students back to school in a live stream news conference Monday morning. He said the teachers’ union had

presented a proposal in which it had backed off on several of its initial demands, including costof-living increases and a reduced wage increase of eight per cent over five years, instead of 12 per cent over four years as was initially proposed. “Our executive made the difficult decision to reduce our salary proposal to show good faith, and that we’re serious about negotiating a fair settlement,” said Iker. “It was not a deal that addressed all our concerns about cost of living … but it shows a willingness to get a deal, and to be reasonable.” In its proposal, the union requested a $5,000 signing bonus; a significant inflation from the government’s offering of $1,200 if a deal is achieved prior to June 30. BCPSEA, representing the province’s 60 school districts,

countered with a salary proposal of seven per cent over six years, which Iker claimed was a quarter per cent less than what was previously offered. However, Peter Cameron, BCPSEA chief negotiator, called that statement a blatant misrepresentation of the facts. In a media conference held Monday afternoon, Cameron said BCPSEA had initially put 7.3 per cent on the table, but because a portion of that was to come from outside the collective agreement, the union was against it. BCPSEA, he said, backed off at the request of the union, reducing the offer to 6.5 per cent. “So how is seven per cent going backwards from 6.5, not to mention the signing bonus?” asked Cameron. “I can’t characterize that as anything other than a mis-

representation… It’s one thing to characterize in a way that’s favourable to your side and another to say something that’s completely false.” Cameron said the union’s latest wage offer is a reduction from its previous position, but when increased benefit costs are factored in, it is still more than twice as much compensation as other public sector union settlements. Both sides said they’d rather be at the bargaining table. Both sides blamed the other for the reason why they weren’t at the table. Both sides said the next move is up to the other if a deal is to be reached. The one thing they did agree on was that a full-strike was underway. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Outrage is coming from all over the globe. The Kooyman family of Chilliwack — still facing intense criticism after video evidence surfaced of cow abuse at the hands of eight dairy workers — has more problems. Milk pick-up from the farm was suspended Friday by the BC Milk Marketing Board, and reinstated the next day when it received assurances from independent veterinarians about safeguards being implemented to ensure animal welfare best practices. But it wasn’t enough. Montreal-based dairy giant Saputo said Monday it would no longer accept milk from Chilliwack Cattle Sales, pending independent audits – this, after more than 90,000 people signed a change.org petition calling for a boycott. The marketing board put out a release Tuesday saying it will honour the processor’s request that milk not be accepted from Chilliwack Cattle Sales, which means thousands of litres of milk per day will likely have to be dumped. The refusal by the dairy giant to take receipt of milk from Chilliwack Cattle Sales is a big concern for the board. The release states the board was satisfied by assurances from officials that animal welfare issues are being addressed at the farm, and the Notice to Industry of June 14 also provided additional action steps it will require over time, such as independent audits and monitoring.

Parents need voice at the table, says DPAC prez Katie Bartel The Progress Chilliwack’s parent advocate says it’s high time parents get their voices heard in the teacher dispute. After months of supporting teachers, Gord Byers, president of the Chilliwack District Parents’ Advisory Council, was fuming at both sides over the weekend. Byers son, a Grade 6 student at Strathcona elementary, missed out on a right-of-passage elemen-

tary school graduation celebration. It was the last straw for Byers. “Ours is just one story … everybody is being used as pawns,” said Byers. “We need to get more parents’ voices out there, because this is ridiculous. It’s BS. I’m not putting up with this.” Byers wasn’t the only one. Social media was abuzz all weekend with parents weighing in. “This dispute, regardless who’s

at fault, has just crushed my daughter,” wrote parent Trinity Lee Melanson on the Real Life in Chilliwack Facebook group page. Melanson’s daughter is in Grade 6 at Robertson elementary. “These kids wanted to actually finish their school year and not be victims in your dispute… Now, I have a very real face to remind me of all this stupidity. Every time I look into my daughter’s face, and I see the disappointment in her eyes, the tears rolling down her face… how dare you take

that from her. Shame on the lot of you.” Another parent, Justin Burnette, wrote: “Bottom line, if the reasoning is ‘for the kids’ why strike and fight [at a time] when it matters most to these kids? “I have no respect for [the teachers’] decision.” But on the Chilliwack DPAC Facebook page, parent Trisha Mercer felt the strike was long overdue. Mercer has two children in the school system with learning disabilities.

“It took three years for the proper assessment for each of my children,” she wrote. “Now that I have it, I’m told there is no funding for extra support. I’ve watched our educators perform miracles day after day trying to be as equally attentive to each student. They can only do so much with what they have. “At this moment, in my opinion, there is no room for children with learning disabilities in the public sector.” kbartel@theprogress.com

Input sought on Cultus Lake growth plans

Hundreds of members of the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association took part in a demonstration walk along Spadina Avenue following a study session at the Landing Sports Centre on Monday morning. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Chilliwack teachers march in solidarity Katie Bartel The Progress Hundreds of Chilliwack teachers walked in solidarity against the government Monday. The Chilliwack Teachers’ Association organized a voluntary demonstration walk, at the Landing Sports Centre, to conclude its “study session” leading into the start of fullstrike action Tuesday. An estimated 800 teachers participated, which included representation from both Chilliwack and Fraser-Cascade school districts. A smaller rally was also held at Chilliwack Mall that had approximately 200 teachers in attendance. Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president Clint Johnston wasn’t surprised by

the turnout. “The line of people walking by and by is exactly what we had hoped for,” said Johnston. “It shows how important what’s going on is to teachers right now.” The walk was not mandatory, but voluntary. The large turnout was proof, said Johnston, that it’s not just the union wanting a

fair deal, it’s teachers. Chilliwack teachers. Johnston listed off issues specifically occurring in the Chilliwack school district. Several full-time teacherlibrarian positions have been cut, he said, most glaringly at inner-city schools where there are high numbers of struggling readers. Other specialty teaching

By the numbers... BCPSEA posted a comparison of the two wage offers Monday. It describes the BCTF proposal as a $5,000 signing bonus followed by increases of 3.5 per cent in the first year and 1.5 per cent in each of the next three years, for a total raise of 8 per cent plus compounding. BCPSEA’s latest offer includes a $1,200 signing bonus for an agreement by the end of the school year, and a series of wage increases up to May 2019 that includes “economic stability dividend” amounts depending on B.C.’s economic performance.

positions have also suffered budgetary cutbacks. Johnston blames the “stripping” of specialist teacher ratios from the contract in 2002, when services, including teacher-librarians and educational assistants, were bundled into the same funding pie. The result, he said, is that administrators have to decide whether it’s more important for whole schools to have supported access to libraries, or for individual children to get the supports they require. “These are not decisions that should have to be made,” said Johnston. “Our children deserve both.” Several communities throughout the province held similar walks and rallies Monday. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

The Cultus Lake Park Board is looking for input on four possible growth scenarios for the future. They’re part of a review of the community’s Official Community Plan, which will guide planning decisions in the future. The scenarios are based on input from the community following an open house in the fall and public surveys, as well as from the Future Plan Advisory Committee, park board staff and local stakeholder groups. The scenarios, which are posted online and were on display at the lake over the weekend, range from the status quo, to a 75 per cent increase in the park board area’s total population base and a 92 per cent increase in its commercial area. The low growth scenario includes a more modest population growth projection of 20 per cent, with the addition of 170 new residential units, taking the form of secondary suites and infill housing. Income from an expanded Sunnyside Campground, which currently provides nearly 50 per cent of the Park Board’s revenue, would grow by 10 per cent, while the new residential units would add as much as 16 per cent. The third scenario would include residential development around Cultus Lake Golf Course, as well as the extension of Park and Mountain View. That would add 320 new housing units to increase the park board area’s housing stock by 70 per cent. Population would increase by 40 per cent, with the addition of 680 new residents. The most ambitious scenario would add 650 new residential units, for an overall increase of 1,350 new residents – an increase of 75 per cent. The total commercial area, meanwhile, would jump by 92 per cent. Continued: GROWTH/ p6

One of four scenarios up for discussion.

News Tough questions about what ‘clean energy’ really is

Massive sturgeon wows father and son

The Progress Local officials are lauding the tough questions asked recently of BC Hydro about the status of Metro Vancouver’s proposed waste-to-energy incinerator. Fraser Valley Regional District reps noted that after an Electricity Purchase Agreement for the project was filed, the B.C. Utilities Commission formally responded with pointed questions about BC Hydro’s pricing scheme and the incinerator’s impact on the environment. The problem is that burning garbage “does not conserve resources or reduce greenhouse gases,” said FVRD chair Sharon Gaetz. By incorrectly classifying the energy as clean or renewable, BC Hydro would pay substantially more for the electricity than necessary, requiring ratepayers across the province to falsely subsidize the garbage-burning facility, she said. Metro Vancouver data shows that more than half of the energy generated by the Covanta-run Burnaby incinerator comes from plastic, which is a non-renewable resource. As an intervenor, the FVRD is praising the BCUC for demanding analytical rigour in terms of when energy is recognized as clean or renewable. This preferred status should only be granted to energy that actually meets the conditions set out in the Clean Energy Act. The June 3 letter from the BCUC to the British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority was expected to be a topic of discussion by the Metro Vancouver Zero Waste committee meeting Thursday. jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno

The 11-foot-10-inch, 880-pound sturgeon was not tagged.

It was their first father-son fishing trip to Chilliwack and they landed one of the biggest dinosaur fish on record. Paul Jarvis and his dad, Ron Jarvis from Atlanta, Georgia picked the Fraser River in hopes of a once-in-alifetime experience. Paul, 19, ended up hooking one of the largest white sturgeons known to have been caught on the Fraser. “In the first few minutes I had it on the line I couldn’t believe the weight and power of the fish. “I am a big guy and I could barely hold on to the rod let alone begin to reel the fish,” he recounted. He and his dad worked in tandem to reel it in for more than an hour, say guiding officials with Great River Fishing Adventures. It was more than 11 feet long and 880 lbs, which makes it the fourth giant sturgeon caught in less than two years, said head guide Dean Werk of Great River Fishing. “It is really exciting to see a fourth monster fish like this within such a short time period. It is proof that our con-

servation efforts are successful and that this is a sustainable fishery as we have seen increase in population for past two years,” said Werk. The Jarvises were thrilled. “Managing that fish became a true father and son challenge,” added Paul. “As I battled the fish my dad handed me water to keep hydrated and he even held on to my fighting belt and harness. “When I saw that head come out of the water it was massive.” The Great River crew scanned the fish and found it had not been previously tagged. They measured the fish and applied a PITT tag to the left side below the head of the fish for conservation efforts. They picked the Fraser on purpose. Ron Jarvis explains: “When I called an American guide company on the Columbia River in Washington, I asked if you could go to one place for a trip of a lifetime.” He was told the biggest fish were found on the Fraser. “I knew the trip was going to be great but never thought we’d hook a 900-pound sturgeon.”

Milk board bows to Saputo request MILK from Front “However, the Board recognizes the need to respond to processors’ milk orders, and as such the Board will adjust delivery decisions as necessary given current circumstances. “The Board has received requests from processors that milk orders do not include milk deliveries from Chilliwack Cattle Sales until the additional independent audits have been completed. “The Board will act in accordance with processor requests and due to lack of market, the milk will be destroyed,” reads the release. The latest actions follow the release of an undercover video June 8, which showed graphic evidence of animal abuse at Chilliwack Cattle Sales, Canada’s largest dairy farm on Prairie Central Road. BC SPCA recommended that cruelty charges be laid against eight workers. Saputo is calling for “strict reform” from dairy producers, with enforceable legal measures to prevent future animal abuse, and severe penalties for abusers. The Kooyman family put out a simple message this week in reaction to the Saputo decision, restating its “commitment to transparency,” and doing what it takes to ensure the wellbeing of their animals, from cameras to improved employee training. Family spokesperson Jeff Kooyman has tried to get in front of the issue from day one. He told The Progress initially he was horrified by the video footage shot by Mercy for Animals Canada. “We have been and will continue to remain transparent on this issue,” says Kooyman. “We want to remain an open book to the public and our industry and will do whatever it takes to restore their faith.” They are opening their

doors to Saputo, the largest dairy processor in Canada. “We would like to extend an open invitation to Saputo to come and view the farm and level of animal care for themselves,” he said. “This is a family farm started in the 1950s and we care deeply for our animals. “We would love the opportunity to show this to Saputo and what measures have been put in place to ensure animal welfare.” The Kooymans have been working closely with the BC SPCA and regulatory authorities, taking steps to ensure animal safety by installing cameras throughout the farm as well as revising hiring policies and seeking new training programs for new and current staff. Training will dovetail with the Canadian Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Dairy Cattle of 2009. Saputo wants to see the Code of Practice be adopted into provincial law. “To set the record straight, Saputo does not own or operate any dairy farms in British Columbia, or anywhere else in Canada.” Like all dairy processors, Saputo is required by law to purchase milk from the provincial milk marketing boards. “While we do not own the farms, we care deeply about the way the milk we sell is produced. “We will not accept milk from the BC Milk Marketing Board supplied by this farm until we are fully satisfied that strict animal welfare practices are in place. “We always strive to do the right thing and our stewardship of the public’s trust in our industry is something we take very seriously. “The abuse brought to light in this case should be viewed as a catalyst for change to ensure the proper treatment of dairy

cattle through appropriate, enforceable and legal measures including severe penalties for offenders.” The Milk Marketing board decision about CCS Friday to suspend, and then reinstate milk pick-up on Saturday, also called for: • Implementation of “independent inspection/ monitoring” for compliance with SPCA dairy animal welfare requirements, plus expert farm audits and training,

• Requirement for mandatory compliance with the Codes of Practice for the Care and Handling of Dairy Cattle, farm monitoring surveillance, • Board oversight of an expert veterinarian team to provide continued direction and supervision to ensure proper dairy animal welfare practices are adhered to and valued at Chilliwack Cattle. All eight dairy workers were fired.

Crash claims Chilliwack woman

Shooting likely targeted, say police Chilliwack RCMP are investigating a possible targeted shooting on the Skway reserve Monday morning. A shot was fired into the home in the 9600 block of Lholhqwelwet Street at around 9:40 a.m. No one was injured. Police are saying little about the incident. “We are still investigating the motivation behind this incident,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “However, we can say that we don’t believe this act to be a random act.”

The Lower Mainland District Integrated Police Dog Service, general duty, serious crime, and the Lower Mainland District Integrated Forensic Identification Section all responded to the initial call. In an effort to protect the integrity of this investigation, police say they won’t be releasing any further details. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604 792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).

Two Abbotsford women – ages 82 and 84 – had to be extricated from the Lumina. They were in stable condition in hospital as of yesterday.  The driver of the Mazda and one of the occupants of the Lumina were airlifted to hospital,

Alison Aspen is a registered massage therapist (RMT). She graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy after completing the grueling 3,000-hour program in 2007. Since then she’s done what she loves – helping others regain the strength and mobility that an injury or a condition may have stolen.

treatment now and a strategy for the future.

She’s joined by Lisa McMurray, a fellow RMT and graduate of West Coast College, and Tarja Oostendarp, who practices therapeutic touch.

Their clientele is as varied as the population, Alison says. That could mean a 16-year-old soccer player, or and 89-year-old backyard gardener. Among the conditions treated by Aspen Health and Wellness are headaches, tendonitis, plantar fascitis, rotator cuff injuries.

Together, they offer a comprehensive treatment facility that looks beyond the injury or issue, providing

Treatment begins with a detailed consultation and a program specific to the client.

But since October, she’s been doing it from her own Young Road clinic here in Chilliwack.

For Alison, the process is a partnership – one that takes the active involvement of the client. It goes beyond treatment at the clinic to strategies in the home and at work. Through stretching, strengthening and massage therapy Alison is able to tailor the treatment to fit the client’s individual needs. The goal, Alison says, is to get clients back to their optimal health as quickly as possible, and give them some lifestyle tools to keep them

News Employer estimates cost of teacher demands Tom Fletcher Black Press The bargaining agency for B.C.’s 60 school districts has put a price tag on what its chief negotiator called “a truckload of benefit provisions” sought by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. The cost estimate was released by the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association after negotiations broke down Monday. BCPSEA calculates that with increased class preparation time and other benefits, the latest offer from the BCTF adds up to a 12.5% increase in total compensation over the five-year term proposed by the union. BCPSEA has proposed a 7% pay increase over six years, plus a $1,200 signing bonus for an agreement ratified by the end of the year. The BCTF countered last week with a proposed $5,000 bonus, to make up for a year the union has worked under an expired contract. BCPSEA chief negotiator Peter Cameron said the union has disagreed with some of the calculations, but has not provided its own costing, and after weekend negotiations he could no longer determine which of them are still on the table. BCPSEA calculates the added costs of union’s proposals for year five as follows: • Wages and benefits: $211.1 million • Dropping the bottom two teacher wage classifications: $16.9 million • Expanded preparation time, elementary grades: $86.2 million • Expanded preparation time, secondary grades: $5.9 million • Pregnancy and parental leave: $22.1 million • Extended health and dental benefits: $11 million • Substitute teacher pay increase: $8.8 million BCPSEA has also calculated the cost of the union’s position on class size and composition at $1.67 billion. That dispute has been the subject of a series of court actions.

R AESIDE

It appears that school is over for the summer, as the full-fledged strike by members of the B.C. Teachers Federation began Tuesday. Here’s hoping that there will be a quick resolution to the strike, through hard and meaningful bargaining. Both sides in the dispute say they wish to reach a settlement — that’s what members of the public, and especially parents and students, wants as well. The longer the contract, the better, for that means more years of labour peace and more concentration on learning. Students across the province have already been negatively impacted by three weeks of rotating one-day teacher walkouts in every district. While the government has guaranteed final exam marking and grades, kids undergoing final lessons, year-end review, and in some cases, getting extra help in attaining the best marks possible in final unit tests and exams – top academics and learning challenged alike – have missed vital instructional time. This is certainly not “about the children,” as the BCTF insists. This is about a prolonged, self-serving spitting contest between the provincial government and one of the most militant unions in B.C. Staging a full-scale strike in the critical closing frames of a school year is deliberately detrimental for tens of thousands of public school children and teens who have already paid a price in this unacceptable battle. There is nothing about jeopardizing the achievement and enjoyment of this year’s crop of students – especially the Grade 12 grads – that is justifiable in principle or practicality. When this battle finally ends, these kids will be the losers. And that is just wrong. ~ Black Press

B.C. V IEWS

Ontario election offers lessons for B.C. VICTORIA – “Liberal” is becoming one of the most illdefined words in Canadian politics. Here in B.C., a Liberal is a Conservative, or at least a fiscal conser vative, bent on balancing budgets and battling big unions to force them to recognize today’s world of low growth and low inflation. In Ottawa, a Liberal is currently whatever Justin Trudeau wakes up and decides. One day he’s a libertarian who wants to legalize marijuana, and the next he’s in touch with his inner Taliban, issuing a moral edict on abortion. In Ontario, Premier Kathleen Wynne saved her gut-shot Liberal government by limping to the left of the NDP, promising to spend lots more borrowed money and build lots of transit. This is in a have-not province

with an operating deficit that is currently running north of $12 billion. For comparison purposes, B.C.’s deficit swelled briefly beyond $3 billion in the wake of the Great Recession of 2009, and the books stayed in the red until last year as the B.C. Liberals unwound the Harmonized Tom Sales Tax and FLETCHER repaid a $1.6 billion HST transfer allowance to Ottawa. You think B.C.’s energy policy is a disaster? Check out Ontario, where the cops are still investigating the $1 billion cancellation of plans to construct two natural gas-fired power plants before the 2011 election. The gas plants were to stabilize erratic output

from wind and solar power, a European-style climate change gesture that involved Ontario ratepayers giving a huge subsidy to Korean tech giant Samsung. The Ontario Liberals clung to power in part by promising a provincial pension scheme on the same scale as the Canada Pension Plan. B.C. has a similar pension program in the works, to be offered to the two thirds of small business and self-employed people who don’t have a group plan with their employer. Ours would, of course, be voluntary. Not so in Ontario, where large and small businesses will be required to cough up half of the required pension payments. The Ontario model is dumb on several levels. It is to be imposed just as the baby boom retirement wave breaks across Canada’s most populous province, increas-

ing risk that the pension pool may run dry. And it sticks small business with a new payroll tax in a province that has lost much of its traditional manufacturing base and needs to innovate. Here’s the funny part, if you don’t live in Ontario. Wynne tabled her spending-spree, deficit-be-damned budget in an effort to convince the NDP to keep propping up the Liberal minority government and avoid an election. Instead, she won a majority and now has to implement her pie-in-the-sky promises. Ontario is bracing for a downgrade in its credit rating based on the election result, and is about to go into province-wide bargaining with public service unions who want their share from the Liberal money tree. Ontario Pr ogr essive Conservative leader Tim Hudak

ran on a plan that sounded similar to the one presented by Christy Clark in 2013: hold the line on spending, balance the budget, reduce the size of government, stimulate job creation. Hudak was rejected for a second time, and resigned the leadership on election night. B.C. voters now have three years to see how the Ontario version of Liberal government plays out, compared to the B.C. Liberal version. For us, much depends on resource development, including forest products, natural gas and other trade with Asia. If all goes well here, B.C. can continue to send transfer payments to the fantasyland of Ontario. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Support appreciated by RCMP The tragedy in Moncton involving our three fallen RCMP officers has been felt throughout the country. The Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment has seen so many acts of kindness and support from the public during this very difficult time.  From the heartfelt words  for our officers to the flowers, cards and gifts of condolence, your compassion has touched us.  I was humbled that members of our communities took the time

from their busy lives to reach out to us. We have felt supported and appreciated through these acts of kindness and for that, we thank you.  It was particularly touching to see so many of you wearing red in support of our officers on the day of the regimental funerals.  This spoke volumes of your support for us and the families who were directly involved in this tragedy.   The widespread community support we have seen will stay with

15

us in the months and years ahead. The members of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment have been inspired by these random acts of kindness and sympathy.  On behalf of the members and staff of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment I wish to thank each and every one of you for your support. Deanne Burleigh, Superintendent Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment

Those who criticize the disadvantaged should be pitied the context of use of parking spots for disabled persons and in other areas of daily living wherein the ignorant, prejudiced, and dishonest seem to proliferate. If it is any comfort, it is the coward who must bear the burden of selfguilt, for he (or she) must on some subconscious level know what that attitude entails. Only by monumental effort of self-deceit would

it be possible to live with that knowledge. Such people can only be pitied for their morally-challenged mental prisons. It never ceases to amaze me that critics of the disadvantaged can bear the hardships and adversities of their targets with such fortitude and aplomb. One might well wish that smug selfsatisfaction to be priced by the sharp arrow of what the reality of service

is actually like. Try not to let the malicious jerks of the world get you and your husband downhearted, Mrs. Rowland. You have the full sympathy and understanding of we who have been there, and believe me, people like that have the worse burden of selfloathing to bear. I guarantee it. Owen Delane, Chilliwack

Classroom worker gives teachers full support Re: Education Funding Cuts As an education assistant I see firsthand the impact of classroom composition and size on the quality of education.  Special needs and behaviourally challenged students without support from CUPE staff monopolize teachers’ time robbing other students of teachers’ attention.  Special needs and behavioural students left without extra support can dominate and run the classroom.  This has a profound effect on the quality of education for all students including students with special support needs.  This detrimental impact is compounded with class size increase.  A large group of acting-out students competing for attention is extremely

difficult if not impossible for one teacher to manage alone resulting in great cost to students. Class size increases and support service cuts, the Liberal government promised not to make, were introduced after 2001 to pay for large tax cuts. Now the education providers are left to manage the resulting damages from these cuts.  What are the values of a government that compromises the education and care of our future generation for short term gain to pay for fiscal mismanagement?  We all reap the long term benefits of investing in our children’s future today. When I hear people vilifying teachers for taking job action out of desperation, I hear this response

as an uninformed knee-jerk reaction like pawns playing right into the government’s strategy to gain public support by provoking teachers to use their only option left – a strike. My advice to Peter Fassbender and the Liberal government is to look beyond your ideologically driven anti-union position and costsaving motives. Step out of your power struggle and need to win in order to genuinely listen and negotiate in good faith this time.  My advice to teachers and the BCTF is to keep on advocating for our children and raising your voices until you are heard.  You have my full support.  Debbie Gove

Dairy farmers take pride in their work Re: Last week’s release of video of animal abuse at Chilliwack dairy farm. So we’re all supposed to “ditch dairy” now? If that is what it takes, I think I could come up with a whole lot of video to promote the ditching of alcohol, cigarettes, and even cars. I’m not sure about anyone else, but if I saw my

neighbour’s dog escaping its yard every day and dangerously dodging traffic, I would go to the owner and inform him of the problem to help solve it. I would not stand for days taking video until the dog was finally run over and then use it as a promotional tool against owning a pet, or maybe against driving a car.

Anyway, what was the name of that organization again? As horrible and wrong as the actions of those employees were, be assured that there was also much agenda-promoting, cinematic manipulation and basic misrepresentation going on as well, playing directly on the naïveté of the general public.

I’m not a dairy farmer, but I’ve seen firsthand how they take great pride in their farms, and care deeply for their cows. I encourage everyone to visit a farm if they have the chance and see the bigger picture of dairy farming in B.C., and don’t “ditch dairy” over a tainted, isolated event.

Five Corners to get a farmers’ market Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Here’s the latest reason to visit Chilliwack’s downtown. Downtown Chilliwack Farmers’ Market is set to open Saturdays in the new park at Five Corners. So far there are about seven vendors confirmed for the opening day,

and more to come, says market president Verna Hoogeveen. Many of the farmers, vendors and bakers started out at the farmers’ market in the parking lot of Minter Country Garden store, which has operated for the past several seasons. Anyone interested in becoming a vendor can contact market manager Lisa Peach at lisan39@telus.net

even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems. When they are partially erupted, the opening around the teeth allows bacteria to grow and will eventually cause an infection. In most cases, the removal of wisdom teeth is performed under local anesthesia, laughing gas (nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia) or general anesthesia. Our services are provided in an environment of optimum safety that utilizes modern monitoring equipment and staff who are experienced in anesthesia techniques.

As a veterans’ advocate, Stoffer has introduced several bills in parliament in an attempt to reverse the Pension Clawback at age 65, and also reverse the New Pension Act regarding disability payments in lump sum to permanently injured personnel returning home from Afghanistan.

The average mouth is made to hold only 28 teeth. It can be painful when 32 teeth try to fit in a space that should hold only 28 teeth. These four teeth are your third molars, also known as “wisdom teeth.” Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth, usually by the age of 18. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, and

Feinberg

Krista Bailie has created The Anonymous Project as an experiment in creating community. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

The Anonymous Project goes global Jennifer Feinberg The Progress People on social media tend to engage in the act of self-branding. But what would happen if they were anonymous? Chilliwack-born ar tist Krista Bailie calls her latest work, The Anonymous Project. People are paired up with partners in the Anonymous Project and they start communicating with each other by email for six weeks. “The goal is to see if it

is possible to connect more deeply when we are not able to engage in the social media driven act of self-branding,” she said. It’s an online global experiment in building community that will eventually lead to a show for the visual artist who is now based in Vancouver. “Part of the motivation for this project actually came from my experience moving out to Vancouver and feeling isolated compared to the deep community mentality in Chilliwack,” she said. She just star ted this

spring, but already the project is making waves. About 100 people participated in the first go-round from all over the world from locations like Chilliwack, to Peru, Japan, the U.K. and across North America. “I think it’s been a success,” Bailie said. “It’s been really fulfilling.” As an artist, she’s used to her work starting conversations, but in this case the project has led to people making “real emotional” connections. Part of the rationale for the

project is better self-awareness. “We need to know who we are and whether we’re being authentic in our world,” she says. “And if not, then why not?” In the process of communicating with a project partner, they can peel away layers of themselves, without revealing their identities. They don’t share their name or any other identifying details. “They connect more deeply. It seems to happen over and over.” The topic of self-branding

tends to come up between the participants. “People start the dialogue on branding, which is fantastic.” Some are very aware of how they brand or identify themselves, and use social media to do it, while others not at all. “I am hoping to put a show together with the descriptions next to each participant. I’ll include what their partner said about them, and what they said about themselves,” said Bailie. Continued: PROJECT/ p20

Invitation to become part of the ‘Anonymous Project’ PROJECT from page 17 It may be impossible to be fully anonymous, but most arrive at a point where they can step away from their

“constructed” identity. Bailie was hoping that the interactions would be positive and that people could make a meaningful connection. In some cases,

the pairing wasn’t quite right. “But even when they were not successful, the descriptions still matched which is interesting.”

It’s best if the partners never meet in real life or online after the project, she said, and it’s part of the rules. Bailie doesn’t even know who the partici-

pants really are. Now she is getting ready to open it up again in July to applications for anyone who wants to apply to become a part of the

project. There is a minimum of one email per week required, with no maximum. There are no rules about the content of the communi-

cations – whether it’s deep introspection, a digital journal, a poetry exchange, or a quick daily check in – that’s between the participants and their partners. Bailie said she will not share any of the communications, without their permission, and conducts a short survey at the end of the experience. She’s an artist who has worked in film, images and new media with a particular interest in the process of identity creation and self-categorization. Bailie has a B.F.A. from Emily Carr University, and her work has been shown across Canada and the United States.

Chilliwack Fair looks for volunteers Did you know that the annual Chilliwack Fair is almost entirely hosted by volunteers? Everyone that you see working at displays, putting on demonstrations, working at the rodeo, staffing the gates and parking, are all volunteering their time.   It truly is put on by the community for the community, says Cathy Oss, president of the Chilliwack and District Agricultural Society. The 2014 Fair will be held Friday Aug. 8 to Sunday Aug. 10, and the event is in need of a few more people to join the team.   These are just a few of the positions to be filled: barn attendants - to sweep and clean around the animal pens in four-hour shifts; people to put up signs both around town and around the site before the fair; people to show vendors where to set up the day

for a delightful combination effect. My favourite varieties are S. ‘Tanna’ and ‘Pink Tanna’ (zone 4). One plant that’s still a sleeper in many gardens is perovskias (zone 5). This silver leafed jewel flowers from June through to frost, loves the hot sun and combines well with so many plants, especially ornamental grasses. Perovskias ‘Blue Spire‘ has been the standard variety for years, even chosen as the Perennial Plant of the Year, but the introduction of P. ‘Little Spire’ is a blessing. Growing only 50 centimetres high, it is both an accent and a focal point. Its tiny blue flowers, accented by silver foliage, make it a standout with shorter evergreen grasses like the darker carex varieties and with all the pennisetums that start blooming in July. It’s also a natural with rudbeckias, heleniums, phlox and late blooming blue salvias. It’s a superb plant that can create an instant effect even if planted now. Autumn mums would also benefit from this great companion. Verbena bonariensis (zone 7) has always been one of my favourite old time tall ‘see throughs’ (1.2–1.5 metres). On Long Island, I spotted this verbena mass planted with ornamental grasses and what an effect! We used to plant it along our streams in the gardens, and it created that ‘wow’ look. It’s most at home in perennial borders as a backdrop, and with tall miscanthus grasses behind, the combined ‘see through’ result is delightful. It’s also fun to use with tall white phlox, like ‘David’. They are heat and drought tolerant and bloom continually till frost. Although not that hardy, they self seed for a return visit each year.

The Chilliwack Progress Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Finding that ‘wow’ factor for perennial beds and containers MINTER from page 26 I consider English lavender a great lower ‘see through’ plant. It’s a match made in heaven for low growing pink roses, late blooming pink dahlias and low growing leucanthemum, like the award winning ‘Snow Lady’ (zone 5). There is a strong resurgence in the use of lavenders, especially the hardy L. angustifolia ‘Hidcote’ (zone 5) which grows to 38 centimetre and its slightly shorter counterpart L. angustifolia ‘Munstead’ which grows to 32 centimetre. There are so many possibilities when it come to ‘see through’ plants, but it is usually the tall growing varieties that have the true ‘see through’ capabilities. Late blooming verbascums, tall veronicas and gypsophila are all great candidates. The tallest kid on the ‘see through’ block is Thalictrum rochebrunianum. Their tiny lavenderpink flowers with soft yellow stamens bloom in profusion from July through September. Growing to two metres or more, they are used often in perennial borders to provide a unique see through quality that adds distance. They also combine well with early blooming miscanthus grasses. Thalictrums add a tall vertical element where it’s often missing, and they provide good stature to any perennial garden. I hope you will not only try some of these plants, but also use them in ways that can highlight your containers and garden beds.

Pikeminnow Derby highlights Family Fishing weekend The 2014 edition of the annual pikeminnow derby held at Cultus Lake was a roaring success. On Family Fishing weekend throughout BC, many local families were on the water at daybreak testing their skill and attempting to land the derby winner. When not fishing, anglers took in several educational displays that dotted the lake’s edge around Main Beach. The derby was organized for a second year in a row by CLASS (Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Strategy). The Fraser Valley Salmon Society ran it for the eight previous years. This year’s derby saw less anglers, but they caught more fish. On Saturday, 542 fishers took 728 pikeminnows. Last year’s derby drew 661 people, who collectively landed 560 fish. By the 2 p.m. deadline the heaviest pikeminnow of the derby was caught by Greg Pinker, hitting the scales at 2.88 pounds. Cole Rogozinski took second place with a 2.46 pounder. Dale Doffield and

Robert Orr followed, both with 2.08 pounders. The top junior angler was Aiden Henderson with a 1.92lb entry, earning him the Greg Clark Memorial Trophy. Jayla Sikkema took second place with a 1.48lb entry. Devon New (1.46lb) and Taylor Blois (1.44lb) were close behind. In the adult division Peter Buck landed 75 fish to take the award for most fish for the third year in a row. Justin Robert was six fish behind. James Cunliffe, with 41 pikeminnows, and Beau Diaach, with 34, were in the mix. Owen Nelson took the most fish in the junior division, reeling in 20 to beat Kayleigh Jeppe by one. Bradley Vanoort hauled in 15 with Emma Rissanen finishing fourth. One tagged fish from a previous scientific study was landed by Keith Holdsworth, earning him a $100 prize. Lauren Spilsbury from CLASS opened up some of the fish during the derby. “I was examining the fish to see how healthy they were,” she said.

“The health of the lake influences the health of the fish. I did a visual check on their internal organs, looking for anything unusual, which I

didn’t find.” Derby chairman Neil Smith said the event was very rewarding to his committee. “Families coming

together at Cultus Lake is what I saw a lot of,” he said. “Being together at a beautiful place, and the kids and the smiles on their faces were very

evident to us all.” CLASS chairman Marion Rober tson echoed Smith’s comments adding, “It was heartwarming to see

so many families come out and care for Cultus Lake, to fish for these salmon predators the Northern pikeminnows.”

Cascades help with Books and Basketball program

The best ideas are often the simplest ones. In the case of Abbotsfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Colleen and Gordie Howe middle school vice-principal Jasbir Singh, a simple idea was asking his daughter Jaslyen how to help basketball-crazy students focus on getting their homework done. Jaslyen had some ideas of her own, and, as a member of the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades basketball team, the connections to get them realized. While her father used

the ideas produced by his and Jaslyenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaboration to apply for a government grant, she pitched a new community program to the UFV athletics department and her teammates. After all, what better way to convince middle school students of the link between basketball and school than introducing them to the champion of both, the varsity student-athlete? Jasbir got the funding, and since then the Books and Basketball program has been a semester long success story at his school. Running every Monday and Wednesday between 4:15 and 6:15 p.m., the program boasts between 40-50 kids per session. Split into two groups, the students spend an hour playing basketball in the gym and an hour doing homework

in the library. Helping them on the court and among the books are faces familiar to any Cascades fan: Kevin Ford, Shayna Litman, Samantha Kurath and Chilliwackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Alexa McCarthy among others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to entice kids to excel at school and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough initiative when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re younger and, unlike

university students, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize the importance of education,â&#x20AC;? said Jasbir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They love basketball, they just absolutely adore it, so how do I draw the connection between books and basketball? And I just started thinking, every time they get an interaction with a young student from university they get excited, especially the university athletes.â&#x20AC;? Jasbir reported that his students often ask their coaches what kind of marks are required to get into university or to play on a varsity team.

The Cascades athletes are helping kids discover that their dreams of basketball excellence also require academic excellence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and that their community heroes at UFV are achieving both. The program has grown like wildfire, according to Jasbir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just love [the coachesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;] enthusiasm,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I already knew the kids would think of them as role models, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the extent to which they would bind to the athletes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like bees to honey â&#x20AC;Ś the kids start to view them as people and then I know that the athletes have connected with the kids and now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got influence. Once the kids know you care about them, then you can move them.â&#x20AC;? What do the students think of Books and Basketball? Most spoke primarily of their improvements on the court, and gave glowing reviews to Cascade Kevin Ford (who does the majority of the coaching in the gym).

One said that Ford had â&#x20AC;&#x153;taught [me] a bunch of skills, a lot of new moves, and some respect. [My best new move] is the in-and-out crossover!â&#x20AC;? Jaslyen can only laugh when she looks back on her time as coach and tutor at Howe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the kids are a handful, but I love them to death,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best is with Kevin. They ask â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh Kevin show us your highlight tape!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and sure enough the first week they went home and watched it. When they came back the next day it was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh Kevin, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so sick! Oh Kevin, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re amazing!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They follow him around wherever he goes.â&#x20AC;? Jasbir, Jaslyen, and Kevin each have stories of tangible change theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already seen in the lives of the students they work with, from improved grades and self-esteem to better camaraderie on the court. Each Cascade coach knows theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had an impact as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve passed on the

skills that have allowed them to succeed as a student-athlete to a new generation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Education is your ticket to anything you want to be in life,â&#x20AC;? said Jasbir, reflecting on his responsibility as viceprincipal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regardless of the background that you are from, education is the great equalizer of everything. If I can arm [my students] with that, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done my job. Basketball for us was a vehicle that we could use to drive these kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academics, to combine them is just unbelievably exciting.â&#x20AC;? Although the program has been cut short by strike action, Jasbir hopes that he will be able to extend the government grant that funds the program into the fall semester. At that time he will once again be looking to partner with UFV Athletics and the men and women of the Cascades varsity teams, bringing together the community in a simple, but great, idea.

Stealers advance home runs to lead the offence. Defensively, catcher Kiana Kelly and shortstop Mercedes Schneider combined for several outs at second base. Nathania Braun, Danaye Reinhardt, Maddison Atkins and Trisha Jensen vacuumed up balls in the outfield and Taylor MacDonald executed a beautiful pick-off at third base. The final was a rematch with the Elite. Marshall pitched a complete game as her team squeaked out a 4-3 win. Offensive highlights included Mackenzie Johansen laying down a perfect bunt, and Caitlyn Fedrau driving in the winning run in the final inning.

We’re thinking of you today But that is nothing new We thought of you yesterday And will tomorrow too We think of you in silence And make no outward show For what it means to lose you Only those who love you know Remembering you each day is easy Especially on your birthday But it’s the heartache of losing you That will never go away.

OBITUARIES

Robert Roy Davies

June 7, 1925 - June 9, 2014

BAERG, Leona Sept 3, 1934 - June 9, 2014 Leona died in the loving care of her son, Darwin and daughter-in-law, Susan. She will be forever missed and loved by her children, Rod (Cathy), Darlene (Darryl), Darwin (Susan), Cheryl (Steve) and her cherished grandchildren, Miranda (Len), Nicole (Jason), Kylie (Bastien), Carli, Daniel (Tina), Jason (Lindsay), Hayley (Lorin), Will, Jake, Josh, Justin (Casey), Cartney (Darren) and Russell, Amy (Kyle), and Ashley. She had a special friendship with each of her grandchildren. She loved sharing her love of gardening and stories of adventures raising her children in logging camps on the BC coast. Grama never missed celebrating each of their life milestones and accomplishments, sharing graduations, weddings, and the births of her 13 great grandchildren. When spending time with her great grandchildren, her eyes would light up and sparkle with absolute joy. Leona’s life career was caring and doing for others. Her volunteer work started for the Royal Columbian Hospital 47 years ago in the Children’s Ward, Gift Shop and Emergency Ward. She was one of the prominent volunteers in the opening of the RCH Auxiliary thrift store where she spent countless hours with the hard working women and men that came to be some of her closest friends. She enjoyed vacations, dinners and going to the theatre with them. Leona contributed hours of labour, designing and then sewing kidney dialysis belts for RCH. Her design of these belts was recognized by other hospitals and volunteers are now sewing these belts for numerous hospitals in BC. She will be greatly missed by her brothers and sisters, Wil (Elsie), John (Shirley), Serena, Gertie (Phil), Abe, Sue, Debbie (John), many nephews and nieces, extended family and her best friend, Frieda Dueck. “She shines the light of courage even when the night is long and dark, she keeps the flame of faith, filling hearts with hope, inspiring those who follow to carry on with strength…she pilots others safely through the seas of life. The radiance of her wisdom illumines like a beacon shining from within her unwavering heart.” Please celebrate Leona’s life and spirit with a random act of kindness. A celebration of her life will be held in September with notification to be sent out. Condolences can be emailed to: leona3baerg@hotmail.com
