Yale woman dies in tragic collision near Boston Bar Erin Knutson Hope Standard

Janice Common of Yale tragically succumbed to the injuries she sustained at the scene of an accident, after a tragic collision occurred on Highway #1 near Blue Lake Road, North of Boston Bar on Thursday, June 4th at approximately 8 a.m. The collision was the result after Common’s vehicle and a commercial “B Train” tractor-trailer loaded with wood collided. The preliminary investigative report determined that 63 year-old Common and the trailor-tractor were both travelling in the same direction when the accident happened. The sole survivor and driver of the tractor-trailer cooperated with police and remained on the scene to ascertain some of the details of the incident. After closing for several hours; the highway, resumed with traffic flow and Cpl. Rempel of BC RCMP Traffic Services cautioned the public to take

extra care on the roadways as the scene was cleared. Traffic Services are also continuing their campaign to alert drivers to the potential dangers on the road as the prime summer season comes to life. “We are seeing a lot of these tragedies lately, and it seems as though motorists are not getting the message to slow down and take precaution,” Rempel told The Hope Standard. New initiatives on behalf of the RCMP are currently in the works to campaign for drivers to be cognizant of their own behaviour on the road and on the behaviour of their fellow travellers. “That means don’t drink and pay attention to everyone around you,” said Rempel. A celebration of life service is set to be held on Saturday, June 13th at the Yale and District Community Centre to remember Common. If anyone has witnessed the accident and not come forward to speak to the police they are asked to contact RCMP Fraser Valley Traffic Services at 604-702-4039 as soon as possible.

Charles Ottewell, Diana Samarakkody and Shannon Piedt, on behalf of the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) Team in Child and Youth Injury Prevention for Think First BC, recently gave a presentation on brain injury prevention to school children across Hope in an effort to bring awareness and to educate the youth on the proper preventative measures necessary to avoid potentially life-threatening and debilitating outcomes from participating in careless behaviour.

Private clinics may be hired for more than day surgery The province may let contracted private clinics keep patients overnight for as long as three days so they can take on more complex surgeries than the day procedures they've so far been permitted to perform. That possibility is mentioned in a health ministry discussion paper of potential surgical reforms that's gone out for stakeholder comment. "Improved access to surgical services may include performing select surgical procedures which have length of stay up to three days, in private surgery centers using public funds," the paper says, adding the change would require amending the Hospital Act. B.C. Health Minister Terry Lake announced an extra $10 million Monday to perform more day surgeries this summer – some through private clinics using public funds – in order to cut wait times. But NDP health critic Judy Darcy said letting private surgery clinics go beyond day surgery to multi-day stays would be tantamount to turning them into full-fledged "private hospitals." Private surgery clinics so far perform barely one per cent of governmentfunded procedures in B.C. when public operating rooms aren't available. Longer patient stays would open the door to many more surgeries flowing to private facilities, Darcy said, adding critical staff may follow, further reducing capacity in public hospitals. "Health professionals are in short supply –  anaethesiologists, specialty nurses – and if we drain them out of the public system into the private system we effectively become captive to private for-profit clinics," Darcy said. She called the proposal a "game changer" that has been quietly advanced under the guise of a short-term "band-aid" to cut waits. "They ought to be doing the innovation and the strategic investment to use our public system to the maximum." Fraser Health does not initially foresee hiring private clinics to supply the extra 500 surgeries it plans over the summer – it will open more of its own closed operating rooms. But the Vancouver Island and and Vancouver Coastal health authorities have indicated they expect to make some extra use of private surgeons. Health Minister Terry Lake was unavailable for an interview. The ministry instead issued a statement defending extended private clinic stays as a successful method of handling more hernia surgeries in Toronto. "This is just one option that is on the table for consideration," it said "Not all of these will be implemented." Black Press

Removing gender from birth certificates strongly urged By Jeff Nagel Black Press

Gender identity should be removed from birth certificates, according to a complaint filed with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal on behalf of nine intersex or transgender people. Morgane Oger, a transgender woman and chair of the Trans Alliance Society, says the forced assignment of gender identity at birth – quickly decided by a doctor inspecting the genitals – discriminates against intersex, trans and other gender non-conforming residents whose assigned gender turns out to be inaccurate or who don't fully identify as one sex or the other. A statement issued by the society says misidentified children "suffer grief when they go to school, humiliation when they apply for a driver's licence and discrimination and danger in every circumstance where someone wants them to 'prove' their gender." Oger argues there is no valid reason to put gender on birth certificates, adding there are many more sophisticated methods to help identify someone. "It is indefensible to use a marker which will certainly be wrong, and create havoc for, a predictable number of people."

Health Minister Terry Lake said B.C. has moved to allow birth certificates to be changed, but removing gender would affect statistics used in medical research. “We are studying this and looking at other jurisdictions, but we have to be really careful with foundational identity documents like birth certificates, because we want to make sure that we don’t impair people’s ability to travel internationally,” Lake said. Transgender advocates elsewhere are also advancing cases seeking to remove gender from passports. Oger said it's not acceptable to have a third gender option like "other" because "that puts a target on the forehead of anyone with that third option recorded."Among the complainants is Harriette Cunningham, a Comox girl labeled male at birth who last year succeeded in getting her birth certificate gender changed to female. In 2013, at the Black Press Photo age of 11, she won a Human Rights Tribunal case Morgane Oger, a transgender woman and chair of the Trans Alliance Society, fights for that led to new provincial legislation making such the rights of transgendered individuals to choose their sex. identification changes easier.

Letters Nuu-Chah-Nulth Tribal Council calls for action The Nuu‐chah‐nulth Tribal Council (NTC) fully supports the recommendations outlined in the Calls to Action section of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) report released on June 2, 2015. Nuu‐chah‐nulth First Nations had two residential schools within their territories (Christie Indian Residential School and Alberni Indian Residential School), and hundreds if not thousands of Nuu‐chah‐nulth First Nations citizens attended other residential schools across Canada. Many faced mental, physical, spiritual, and sexual abuse while they attended these schools. Today the NTC stands with our survivors, those who did not live to see the TRC recommendations, those who did return home, and those who are faced with the intergenerational effects of cultural genocide. We also stand with all fourteen of our Nuu‐ chahnulth First Nations. The time to act is now. Federal, provincial, regional and municipal governments, as well as educational institutions, churches and others listed in the recommendations now have the direction to address true reconciliation with First Nations across Canada. Residential schools are not just a dark chapter in history for Aboriginal people but for all of Canada. Everyday Canadians play an important role in the next steps of recognition and reconciliation. We encourage Canadians to educate themselves and those around them about this horrific era in our history.

Defending facts In our so-called "Democratic" society, we are often told that there is complete freedom for all political parties. The only problem is that this is not the truth and we often see a planned and organized effort to discredit the NDP with halftruths, outright lies and distortions. Adrian Dix, from the last provincial campaign, can attest to this. In a recent edition of the "Sage", the national magazine sent out to all Federal retires, they had a lengthy article on the "opposition" to the Harper government. The article focused on the "fact" that the Liberals were the natural opposition to the Conservatives. There were several large pictures of Trudeau in this article, with only one tiny picture of Mulcair.I wrote a letter to the editor to  "set them straight". This letter is published in this month's edition. My conclusion is to state that it is long overdue that we, as NDP supporters, be much more forceful in our defense of the facts in Canadian politics.

Where have our renters gone? Burnaby’s Metrotown area has become a hotbed of developer activity. Members of anti-poverty group BC ACORN are feeling the squeeze. They are feeling the constriction as the low cost rental apartment buildings are making way for new condominium developments that are way out of their price range. According to apartment owners’ newsletter  The Goldman Report, 2014 saw “an unprecedented” 23 rental buildings sold in the Metrotown neighbourhood, with 14 being slated for redevelopment into new market housing. “Where are all the people supposed to live if they can’t pay for one of thenew places?” says Burnaby ACORN member Don Gorman, a senior rent-

ing in the Metrotown-area. Like so many others in Burnaby, he is wondering what is going to happen to his apartment building. His building has recently been sold and as such he is wondering what will happen to him and his neighbours. “It’s getting to the point where affordable rental housing is no longer available in cities like Burnaby. I don’t believe that politicians can’t do anything - there is always something they can do. We need to make more people aware to stand up for their rights!” BC ACORN members staged a “Where Do Our Renters Go?” protest on  Wednesday  June 10,  to get Burnaby city officials to stop allowing the demolition of affordable

rental housing. The site of the protest is 6380 Silver Ave at Beresford St, where 2 rental buildings totalling 109 units - are up for demolition in the near future. The property redevelopment will result in $15,877,726 in cash as an amenity bonus for the city.  A formal public hearing on the fate of the buildings will be held at Burnaby City Hall on June 23 at 7 PM.

Letters

The NTC found the actions of the Crown's Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, Bernard Valcourt, during the recent TRC announcement particularly disturbing. The majority of the audience responded with a standing ovation to Commissioner Justice Murray Sinclair’s recommendation for a national inquiry into murdered and missing indigenous women, while Minister Valcourt stayed seated with his arms folded. No longer can governments sit and be idle. The time to act is right now for future generations and all Canadians. First Nations are doing the work necessary to heal. Over 100 years of abuse cannot be undone with simply an apology and compensation. True reconciliation begins with action. We look forward to working hand‐in‐hand on reconciliation with all levels of government and First Nations across Canada. Future generations are looking to all of us to help create a better Canada right now. Nuu‐chah‐nulth First Nations and citizens simply want to have their rightful place in this country recognized and respected.

From trash to treasure

Erin Knutson Hope Standard

Hope is hosting a special event to help recycle and reuse quality household items an effort to keep it from seeing the abyss of the landfill, while providing a solid starter kit for kids heading off to university. “It’s something they can take to school and never bring back,” said Victor Smith, president of Communities in Bloom. There is an international-wide trend of recycling and repurposing household goods in a new environmentally conscious movement geared toward preventing the reduction of waste by taking a stance against the creation of it. By reusing, repurposing or salvaging the wreckage from someone else’s trash pile, each Hope citizen has the distinct opportunity to offer some relief to the tragic piling up of waste in today’s landfills. The planet is taxed with the consumeristic culture of our society. Every time a new product is made it requires the use of extracted materials and energy — the process involves fabrication and transportation, an intricately woven system that is taxing to both human resources and those of the environment on multiple levels. Benefits to a re-purposing attitude are plentiful and assist in the prevention of pollution and the continuation of neo-colionialism, which involves the arduous and exploitative task of uprooting foreign soil for domestic goods. By reusing salveagable goods, there will be a reduction of greenhous gas emissions that are contributing to the current global climate change and it will help maintain the environment for new generations in a fiscally responsible way. Using a product to its maximum potential is another added plus of repurposing your neighbours furniture, as well as providing the valuable service of taking it off of their hands and allowing university students on a budget to enjoy the comforts of home. On Saturday, June 13th, a call to all Hope residents has been issued to put quality goods, furniture, appliances and anything that is in decent condition or has been kicking around the garage for a decade, out on the curb from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. This day is a community initiative to de-clutter in an environmentally conscious fashion, whilst sending the kids packing in style.

Hope raises $5000 for minor soccer On Saturday, June 6th, Canada’s Women’s National Team played China at the Fifa’s Women’s World Cup, winning with a 1-0 score. A sold out crowd cheered to Christine Sinclair when she scored the victory goal during a penalty kick in the second minute of second-half-stoppage time. It was during this victory that Hope soccer fans had the distinction of raising $5000 for Hope Minor soccer by cheering. Through the Mondelez Pride and Joy campaign (Mondelez is known for its fun products like Chips A’Hoy, Maynards Candies, Ritz Crackers and Stride Gum,) that involves a fun and resourceful new app called the Joy Cheer App, local and national fans cheered their way to a victory for Hope’s minor soccer teams. “The Pride and Joy Campaign” is a free new app that was created for youth soccer that allows fans to cheer by shaking it — it’s a grass roots movement to raise money for youth soccer and give deserving communities a chance to distribute new resources in a fun and enggaging way,” said Adita Burman, sponsorship consumerism promotion leader from Mondelez. “It’s about giving all the kids an opportunity to play,” she said.

Conductor ends will need to be joined with the use of an implosive connector that is a metallic sleeve with a small charge in it for each conductor.

Standard. “We’re hoping to get more nets, equipment, a line marker and to give cash to kids who don’t necessarily have the financial means to play.” Smith encouraged the students to download the app and cheer, bribing them with an excess of freezies and ice cream that he distributed to completion upon the procurement of the desired funds. Hope Minor Soccer’s first priority with the money will be to help fund youth who face significant financial barriers, prohibiting them from the game of soccer — whether it be helping to pay league fees, buying cleats, shin pads or helping to send players to tournaments according to Smith. All soccer fans are encouraged to download the Mondelez Pride and Joy Cheer App for free from the app store or Play Store and to cheer your hearts out for Canada’s Women’s National Team in the upcoming game scheduled on Monday, June 15th. Showing your support by cheering and shaking the app will provide a chance to give other communities and deserving kids the dream of minor soccer.

Sports Coquihalla Elementary lives it up

Competitive counterparts Coquihalla Elementary School recently held its first K-6 sports day in 27 years. Kids enjoy a plethora of activities to help bring in the school year. From clockwise: Brianne Richardson holds the parachute as Summer Charlie prepares to cross; Earthball was a new event this year with the objective to push the light-but-large ball over the team’s line; Marley Gobelle gives it her all in the sack race as kids enjoy the ever popular bean bag toss.

Hope Secondary Class of 2015

Valedictorian Address We spent the entire first day working on this speech thinking of how to start it. At first we averaged one sentence every half an hour. We had goals though: one chair flip, a couple of gasps, and at least three sniffles from the crowd. I wanted to put in some last-minute scholarship self-promotion, but Emma vetoed it.

and generally in a good mood. And of course, Ms. Naz, who has been by our side this entire year, helping us organize the chaos that is graduation. It’s people like them that we can attribute our success to; people that aren’t afraid to be blunt with us if they know it’s for our own good.

Now let’s get to the real reason why we’re here. We’re graduating, and to be honest, I can barely believe it. It seems like yesterday we were being dropped off by our parents for the first day of kindergarten. Wasn’t it just last week that we were playing Queens Court with Mr. Flynn? Writing Blooper Quizzes with Mr. Crosgrey? Sitting on the grad benches for the first time? Graduation has come faster than we could ever imagine. We, as Ms. Poulin puts it, will all be moving on to the next stage of our lives after this year. And as we move on to this next stage, we will miss so many things about HSS.

We’ll miss the little things, like the buns from the Soups On; buttery pieces of heaven on the second Wednesday of every month. We’ll miss the late night bonfires with friends, when you can sit back, forget about the stress, and just live in the moment. We’ll miss being able to reminisce about embarassing moments from middle school; the skinny jeans, the bad hair cuts, the pointless “drama.” We will miss Hope’s beauty; the big, towering mountains that surround the valley we have called home for so long. And we will miss walking through the halls and recognizing every single face in the crowd, the familiarity, the routine we have lived day in and day out for the last five years.

For one, we’ll miss the amazing staff. From Mr. Webber’s twisted sense of humour to Ms. Araki’s constant puns…. From Ms. Wilkin’s paranoia over human trafficking to Ms. Anderson always demanding math jokes in our presentations and speeches (What do you call friends who love math? Algebros). We will miss Donna and Ms. Broswick, who always keep us in line and makes sure we’re on time, well fed,

But just because we’ll miss HSS, it doesn’t mean we’re not looking forward to the future. Graduating is a chance to step out of our comfort zones. Routine is familiar, but after a while, it’s a little boring. For thirteen years, from September to June, each week day has been taken from us. From the early

Emma Pearce

hours of the morning to the middle of the afternoon, we have been in a desk, processing information. Graduating means we’re taking back our week days. That’s right, 8:30 to 2:55 is ours again, and we’re going to do whatever we please with the time allotted.

pond and the world is a big sea; and we all know what they say about the sea… it contains plenty of fish! Fish that don’t remember all our embarrassing moments. Fish with different opinions, attitudes, and backgrounds than what we have grown up with. Fish that we may one day call our best friend or soulmate. We’re going to put ourselves out there, suffer rejection and heartbreak, but ultimately, we’re going to be happy that we left the pond and met someone new.

Because we have dreams to pursue. Some of us are continuing our studies, either here or abroad, while others have plans to work or travel. The possibilities are endless. We are your next generation of thinkers, problem solvers, game changers, designers, and inventors. We may come from a small town, but we are not small-minded. We are filled with ambition and we will go places. Going places means meeting new people; let’s face it--Hope is a very small

But whatever we do and whoever we meet, we’ll never forget where we’re from and who we’ve grown up with. To all who have supported us, thank you. And to the graduates of 2015, congratulations. We started from the bottom and now we’re here.
