Fatal crash takes the life of a young Hope woman Erin Knutson Hope Standard

Forty-year-old Hope resident, Byllie Harden was killed in a tragic collision, after suddenly veering off the Highway and striking a tree, which was located in the foliage of the center median, according to preliminary investigative reports and an initial press release statement given by officials. The fatality occurred on Friday, May 15th, at 4 a.m. The Agassiz RCMP promptly responded to a reported single motor vehicle collision on Highway #1 eastbound and east

of the Popkum Road exit in Chilliwack. Ms. Harden was the only passenger in the vehicle and sustained serious injuries to her person, which she succumbed to at the scene of the accident. The cause of the collision has not yet been determined, as police urgently cautioned the May long weekend mototrists to drive with extreme care and to pay attention to others on the road. “With the excitement of the May long weekend, also comes preventable tragedies on B.C. roads — it is imperative that safe driving is your priority, so everyone reaches their desti-

nations safely,” said Cpl. Ronda Rempel of BC RCMP traffic, in a press release statement to the public, on the advent of the crash. The investigation is being thoroughly continued with the guidance of the BC Coroner’s service, alongside the Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstructionist Service. A memorial service for the victim was held Wednesday, May 20th. Anyone who has further information, or may have witnessed the collision has been asked to contact the RCMP Fraser Valley Traffic Services at 604-702-4039, reference file # 2015-17065.

The Chief Administrative Officer presented Council with the Station House Project Report. It was noted that AdvantageHOPE formed a Steering Committee for this project, members include: Tammy Shields, Stephanie Hooker, Don Wiens, Marg Miller, Rasmus Sjovold, Jim Dent and Jim Lasser. Ms. Shields noted that volunteer labour has enabled the savings for completing this report and seeking grant monies. Also, local contractors and Steering Committee members helped provide cost estimates for the report, as well the previous engineer’s report assisted with this assessment. If Council desires, they can preserve the building to determine a use within the 2014 budgeted funds, or an increase to $200,000 would allow for more of the priority fixes to be undertaken. Council advised they will look at the benefits and financial feasibility of the project as a whole. The Committee was asked if they can possibly come up with a cost estimate for a brand new building. It was noted that grant funding is more attractive to restore a historical building.

B.C. axes Agricultural Land Reserve boss Tom Fletcher

two-zone system under the auspices of his "core review" of government services, said a year ago that Bullock found the regional panels to be "a pain in the ass" and  preferred to run the commission from its head office in Burnaby. So the government mandated regional appointments in legislation along with the two-zone concept. Leonard takes over as the ALC deals with a vast Interior "zone two" with relaxed rules for second residences and non-farm activities. Commissioners are also expected to deal with applications by a British manufacturing giant buying B.C. Interior farms to turn back to forest for European Union carbon credits. Letnick said the regional panels are up and running, and he doesn't expect the change at the top to cause delays in making decisions on farmland use or exclusion.

Black Press

The B.C. government has "released" Agricultural Land Commission board chair and CEO Richard Bullock, and will pay out his five-year contract until it ends in November, Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick said Thursday. Bullock will be replaced effective immediately by longtime Saanich mayor Frank Leonard, who was voted out after nearly 20 years in last fall's civic elections. Letnick said with new regulations taking effect to manage the Agricultural Land Reserve with two zones, it was time to make a change and let Leonard and the board choose a new CEO. The B.C. government has been at odds with Bullock since early in his five-year term, when he stopped appointing commissioners to six regional panels around the province. Energy Minister Bill Bennett, who pushed through the CEO Richard Bullock, and will pay out his five-year contract until it ends in November.

Nicola Valley residents rally for Hope The boundaries commision saw residents calling vehemently to be re-united with Hope

Celebrating its 60th Anniversary, this is the quintessential James Dean film that gave rise to his legend. Perhaps more than any other, this star (and film) spoke to a generation of discontented, suburban youth in America, searching for love and meaning in their desperate teen years.

Next month’s screening: Nicola Valley residents overwhelmingly called for the community of Hope to join their provincial electoral district during a public meeting yesterday. B.C.’s electoral boundaries commission held its second meeting in Kamloops — this time to take submissions on its preliminary report, produced last year after a first round of public consultations. The commission’s report recommends the province add two new electoral districts in the Lower Mainland, which would bring the number of MLAs in B.C. to 87. But, it sees little need for change in the Interior. The three-person panel headed by chairman Thomas Melnick, a B.C. Supreme Court justice, recommended no change to the boundaries of Kamloops-

North Thompson. In Kamloops-South Thompson, it wants to add the Knutsford area, taking it from the Fraser-Nicola riding to the south. The minor changes, largely amounting to the status quo, brought little or no public reaction. Those who attended the public hearing at Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre were largely Nicola Valley residents advocating for Hope to be brought back into the Fraser-Nicola, at one time known as Yale-Lillooet. “The old Yale-Lillooet riding was extremely good,” said Victor York, a former chief of the Lower Nicola Indian Band who now lives in Spences Bridge, but works in the Nicola Valley.

There are better ways of protecting our skin like restricting hours of exposure, frequent use of sunscreens, clothing that covers the skin and wearing a broad-brimmed hat and sunglasses.

‘Minor spill’ in Fraser River from overturned boat gets praise for clean-up

Published Thursday

A small amount of engine or bilge oil that escaped into the Fraser River from a capsized fishing boat at a marina in Richmond triggered a Coast Guard-led pollution response Tuesday. The light sheen, visible down the river from Shelter Island Marina as far as the Massey Tunnel, was deemed to be nonrecoverable, according to Port Metro Vancouver.

It came just over a month after a spill of bunker fuel oil from a grain freighter in English Bay fouled beaches and led to strong criticism of the Coast Guard response. This time, a port patrol vessel and Coast Guard hovercraft were on scene quickly by 8 a.m., and absorbent pads and a containment boom were deployed to contain any more leaking contaminants. Coast Guard spokesman Dan Bate said the "minor spill" came from the 80-foot fishing boat

Western Crusader, which had empty fuel tanks and had just been moved here from Campbell River. Premier Christy Clark, who had suggested Ottawa might relinquish spill response authority to B.C. after the April 8th Marathassa spill, said Tuesday it appears the Coast Guard performed at the standard expected this time. "So far we're satisfied," Clark said. "The response, I'm told, was quick, and the spill was quite small."

A6 Hope Standard Thursday, May 21, 2015

Published by Black Press Limited at 540 Wallace St., Hope, BC V0X 1L0

Sacrificing farmland to improve climate change It was 2008 when word first surfaced that B.C. farmland was being bought up to grow trees as a European carbon offset. Reckitt Benckiser Inc., a British-based global manufacturer of household products such as Lysol spray and Calgon laundry soap, bought 1,500 hectares east of Vanderhoof and planted aspen. For comparison, that’s about the size of downtown Vancouver from 16th and Oak to Stanley Park. Since tree growing is permitted in the Agricultural Land Reserve, a use intended for fruit, ornamental or nursery trees, no permission was needed. And to meet the carbon offset rules of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change, a 100-year restrictive covenant against harvesting trees was issued by B.C.’s land titles office. Goodbye farmland. After that deal, the B.C. government changed legislation in 2011 to require permission from the Agricultural Land Commission to make these covenants valid. Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick says he is waiting for that process to be tested. It likely will be soon. Reckitt has bought another 7,000 hectares of cleared farmland from Prince George down through the Cariboo to Quesnel. NDP agriculture critic Lana Popham has been tracking these acquisitions, and she says there are more deals in the works. Last fall, the Bulkley Nechako Regional District wrote to Victoria Wood, Reckitt Benckiser’s “global head of sustainability,” telling her that “the planting of trees on centrally located and productive agricultural lands is not appropriate” and would weaken local farm economies. Wood responded that the RB Trees project targets only “marginally productive” land such as pasture, abandoned farms or those that have been up for sale for long periods. Former Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson raised the issue in the legislature in 2008, noting that Crown land near Vanderhoof had been sold for farming, bought by a numbered company and then “flipped” for around $1 million to RB Trees. Now mayor of Quesnel, Simpson takes issue with the company’s claims with his usual shyness. “It’s bull----,” he told me. “This isn’t marginal land.” He said it includes prime alfalfa fields and historical ranch and forage crop lands. In one case, neighbours found out about the new use when they saw a helicopter spraying herbicide to prepare the area for tree seedlings. And where are B.C.’s tireless food security advocates on this dubious scheme? 

Nurses push for new hires at legislature rally B.C. VIEWS

Members of the B.C. Nurses' Union brought a sea Tom Fletcher of pink umbrellas to the B.C. legislature Thursday to call on the B.C. government to honour a provision that requires health authorities to replace absent nurses. BCNU president Gayle Duteil said 2012 contract provision replacing absent nurses can't be implemented without more registered nurses hired to provide the relief. "It's a sad fact that we don't have enough nurses to deliver safe care for meeting the staffing mandated by our collective agreement," Duteil said. "We don't have enough nurses to backfill vacancies, to backfill absences, and we don't have enough nurses to meet the daily spikes in acuity." The recent settlement of 1,600 union grievances for staffing includes $5 million for specialty nurse training, $1 million to support increased RN staffing and $2 million in "grievance settlement funds" paid to nurses affected by staffing shortages. The staffing fund is available to licensed practical nurses who want to upgrade their training. Health Minister Terry

Lake said the interim agreement is a step towards renewing the latest BCNU contract, which expired in March 2014. "We worked through a mediator in the last month or so and came to an agreement, so I think we're in a good place to work towards our new contract," Lake said. "We recognize there are some areas like specialist nursing where we do have challenges, and we have committed some of our funding to recruit and train more specialist nurses, and more community nurses as well." Nurses cheered as Duteil reminded them that their "grievalanche" had an effect. She said the union documented 10,000 shifts that were not filled during a six-week period at health facilities around the province, and represent only the "tip of the iceberg." NDP leader John Horgan addressed the SUBMITTED PHOTO rally, promising that his 2017 election plat- Nurses’ Union president Gail Duteil speaks to rally at B.C. legislature Thursday.

Stephen Harper’s priority is a $2 billion income-splitting plan and a massive increase to the limit for Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs). Both of these measures disproportionately benefit the rich instead of focusing that help on the middle class and those who are working hard to join it.  The vast majority of Canadian households – 85 percent – won’t get a dime from income-splitting, but they will be the ones

left to pay for it. Increasing the TFSA limit to $10,000 per year is also expensive and unfair.    The previous TFSA limit was helping the middle class save for retirement. However, most Canadians won’t benefit from the new higher limit. Canadians who are struggling don’t have an extra $10,000 to sock away each and every year. But wealthy Canadians can spare that amount.  The new TFSA limit will end up costing the government billions of dollars each year. A third of that cost will be borne by the prov-

inces. And because TFSAs don’t count toward income-tested benefits, it will result in additional Old Age Security (OAS) payments for already wealthier seniors. When asked about the long term consequences of the new TFSA limit, Finance Minister Joe Oliver shrugged and said it was a problem for “Stephen Harper’s granddaughter to solve.” Yet these are the same Conservatives who, shortly after the last election, broke their promise and passed a law to raise the age of Old Age Security from 65 to 67.

They falsely claimed that they had to do it in order to keep the OAS program financially sustainable. Raising the age of OAS to 67 takes $32,000 away from each of Canada’s poorest and most vulnerable seniors. The government will be taking that money away at precisely the same time as the extra OAS payments for wealthier seniors start to really kick-in.  The federal Conservatives are stealing from poor seniors in order to give that money to the rich. It’s unfair and un-Canadian.   “The rich get rich-

The Pacific Blue Fin saga continues Overfishing of the world's oceans has decimated 96 per cent of the Pacific Blue Fin Tuna species, if we take what we don’t need, we’re just wasting fish. We need to stop buying Blue Fin Tuna, or we will run out of it. No fish, means, not fishing for Blue Fin Tuna. The cost of blue fin tuna is somewhere between $3,000 and $5,000 per catch. We need to prohibit the fishing community from careless and wasteful fishing practices to preserve these endangered species. Once you catch them all, there will no longer be Blue Fin Tuna in the pacific oceans. Please choose to make the right decision and say no to buying Blue Fin Tuna. Ionela Garret

People think that the Greens are a left wing party, but this is a mistake. The Greens economic policy is more ethically ‘True Blue’ than Mr. Harper's. If you are a staunch conservative, who is dismayed with what Mr. Harper has done to conservative values and the Progressive Conservative Party and you reflect carefully on the reasons for your concern, then you really owe it to yourself to take a good, hard, look at green economic policy. Ms. May believes in the power of the market and is more the true successor to the mantle of John Diefenbaker, Brian Mulroney and Joe Clark than Mr. Harper ever was.

er and the poor get poorer” used to be an old adage. Under the federal Conservatives, it has become government policy. Scott Brison, MP

Community Quality Child Care Resource and Referral services to be offered to the community of Hope The Read Right Society has recently announced a new partnership in conjunction with the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and the Hope and Area Transition Society (HATS.) Their objective is to deliver quality Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) services to the community of Hope and its surrounding areas. “We are excited about this new partnership and to be able to support families, childcare providers, and those interested in becoming a child-

care provider,” said Jodi McBride, executive director at Read Right. The program has been carefully designed as a multifaceted tool that assists families in the process of accessing childcare, applying for childcare subsidies and increasing parenting skills. HATS will be available to offer support and to strengthen families facing challenges or in transition, while providing resources and professional development for registered, A License Not Required (LNR) childcare pro-

viders and assisting those interested in establishing new home daycares. An LNR daycare is officiated by an individual, whom provides childcare in their own home — to no more than two children or one sibling group, in addition to their own children. LNR daycares are encouraged to become a Registered License Not Required (RLNR) daycare through CCRR. The benefits of being registered are extensive including: • Referrals to families seeking childcare listing on the MCFD

Child Care Registry • Information, resources and support from CCRR • Access to a lending library of toys, books, resources and theme boxes • Professional development opportunities at a reduced rate • Networking opportunities with other child care professionals • Quarterly newsletters • Increased rates of Child Care Subsidy for families who qualify “We have toys, books, strollers, literary resources and over 15 theme

boxes, complete with activities and materials available for RLNR daycare providers. There is a great need for more RLNR’s in Hope and we want to encourage people to consider the benefits of becoming registered and accessing the support services we have to offer,” said McBride. Read Right CCRR is located at Unit F, 895 3rd Ave., Hope BC. For more information, please contact Read Right Early Childhood Education Facilitator, Veronica Ryder: 604-869-3984, or veronica@readrightsociety.com

“By accessing world markets for Canadian oil, we’ll enjoy increased tax dollars and years of employment.” - Deborah Cahill, President, Electrical Contractors Association of B.C.

Coastal access for Canadian oil means an increase of at least $5 per barrel. By getting full value for our oil, everyone will benefit. Workers will gain from the $5.4 billion project. Oil producers will earn more revenue for their product. And Government will collect more tax revenue from oil producers to spend on programs such as health care, education and other services that benefit all British Columbians. Plus, we can invest in new training programs and create new jobs for our youth.

Bike Park crew returns to Hope

First 3 months on a 1-year term Low, one-time $99 Activation Fee

Hope’s new Bike Park is calling for volunteers Hope Mountain Centre

Hope’s new Bike Park is nearing the final stages of completion and the people of Hope are needed to help get it across the finish line. Initial funding was slated to cover the entire construction costs of two pump tracks and a wall ride. It’s evident when driving past the construction site, there are dozens of skill-building elements that are roughed in. In fact, when finished, it will be one of the largest bike parks in the Lower Mainland. The Bike Park’s design and construction is currently being overseen by world class professional park builder Jay Hoots. The Hoots crew returned to Hope on Tuesday, May 19th. The roughed-in elements that will be finished and made rideable for the kids of Hope this summer are largely dependent on the breadth of additional funding and volunteer labour

than can be committed to over the next four weeks. The project needs volunteers every day to solidfy its completion, according to officials. “We hope people will sign up and join us, even for two hours if they can,� said Stephanie Hooker of Pathway Partners. “The more volunteer labour we have available — the more we can stretch our precious construction dollars.� Interested individuals are encouraged to arrive at the Coquihalla River Picnic Area parking lot to participate. There will be a 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. shift, followed by a 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. shift every day, which began on Tuesday, May 19th. Volunteers will be overseen by Hope Mountain Centre and the Hoots Crew. For more information please call Kelly Pearce at 604-8693745, or just arrive at the park for the specified work schedule. If you have a set of work gloves, or a rake and a shovel, please bring

those along. The volunteers in charge of fundraising for the project would like to encourage local residents and businesses to support the project. All the money donated in its honour, will be held in a special account at the District of Hope with 100 per cent of contributions going to the project. All contributions will receive a tax receipt and substantial donations will be immortalized on the site. If you are interested in donating, please visit the front desk at District Hall, or contact Stephanie at 604206-1234 for more information. “The Bike Park will be a game changer for the kids of Hope — it will get kids active and into nature, while teaching them the skills and confidence they need to tackle Hope`s more technical biking trails — from little push bikes to advanced riders, there will be something for everyone,� said Ms. Hooker. The Bike Park is one component of the Co-

quihalla River Community Park Project, a community-driven effort to renovate an under-utilized municipal property, located between the Coquihalla River and Kawkawa Lake Road. There are four main goals for the project: improve the Event Bowl and seating area; enhance the Skateboard Park; build accessible walking trails in the forest and construct a mountain bike skills park, specifically designed for all ages and skill levels. Volunteers in conjunction with the District of Hope, secured initial funding from a provincial recreation grant. Tri-West Contracting will be in charge of the construction component, with several stakeholder groups contributing to labour, materials and donations. The group has spent the initial grant money and over-achieved on every goal, completing work valued at $2 million, while spending just over $500,000.

James Deans visits the Hope Cinema in the classic that made him a legend On the advent of its 60th anniversary, the Hope Film Club is presenting the James Dean film, ‘Rebel Without a Cause,’ (1955). The quintessential film that made James Dean a star and revolutionized a generation of discontented, suburban youth in America, searching for love and meaning in their desperate years, is about to inspire generations old and new again, in a similar fashion. The much anticipated showing is scheduled on Thursday, May 28th, for a 7: 30 p.m. start time at the Hope Cinema. Directed by Nicholas Ray and starring an eternally young Dean, Natalie Wood, and Sal Mineo, it promises to be an unforgettable experience and evening.

The injury came in the bronze-medal match of the National Aboriginal Hockey Championship, played at the 11,000seat Halifax Scotia Bank Centre. “We were breaking out of our own end and my dman passed me the puck and a guy blind-sided me with an elbow to the head,” recalled James, who played winger for Team BC. “I don’t know how I landed, but I ended up with a partially-torn MCL in my left knee on the same hit. “There were only two minutes left in the game, too. It was my last shift and I almost made it out, uninjured. The guy got five-and-a-game, but we were already winning and it ended 4-3.” Their opponents from Manitoba had gotten off to a blazing 3-0 start before Team BC worked their way to the tying goal, which James assisted on.
