Chawathil First Nations representative Patricia John, voices strong opinions about the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion currently being proposed. John noted environmental concerns, disrespect for Mother Earth, and a complete disregard for the natural order of things, while petitioning the crowd to think of future generations that could be affected by such a decision at a private screening of the film Directly Affected on Thursday, June 18th at the Christ Church.

Controversial film lands in Hope Erin Knutson and Jennifer Feinberg Black Press

Directly Affected appeared in Hope for a screening of its new documentary which tells the stories of West Coast residents who could be impacted by the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. It was met with a series of oppositional voices by concerned citizens and First Nations represenatives including Grand Chief Ronald John of the Chawathil First Nations and his wife Patricia John. Patricia John gave an impassioned speech about the dangers of

the proposed pipeline and the complete disrespect for Mother Earth that it represents, while discussing environmental issues with the existing pipeline. “It’s legislative violence,” said John, who compared the bargaining tools of big corporations to the mastery of being educationally oversaturated to the third degree (literally) — a luxury, or cultural differerence her forebearers were unable to attain or bridge. Others patrons balked at the transporation of bitumen, a thick tar substance which is toxic and extremely explosive. The bitumen

would be sent to the U.S. to be refined, thus, contractors would most likely be outsourced and financial gains would be minimum, compared to what it would be if the oil was refined in Canada, which it currently is not. The oil would be exported to the U.S. and then reimported. A law preventing American oil from being refined elsewhere is currently in place. Canada has no such law, which is a huge oversight for the construction of a pipeline that would serve little purpose, but to wreak havoc on the environment and

possibly create a disaster that would leave local emergency responders in the lurch at its potential eventuality — according to the protesting voices that emerged after the film’s showing. While consultation has been extensive for the TransMountain project, the filmmakers with Directly Affected decided to turn their cameras on the people along the route — including several from Hope who might otherwise have been silenced by the restrictive hearing process.

Director Zack Embree is a Vancouver-based photographer, videographer, and digital storyteller, who teamed up with coproducer Devyn Brugge and the Raincoast Conservation Foundation to make Directly Affected. They travelled the route of the pipeline from Alberta to Vancouver to record different perspectives, and received a type of crowdfunding from Telus to make the documentary with Storyhive. The group is currently making the track from Vancouver to the Alberta Oil Sands for screenings in select cities. So is the film art or political propaganda? “I certainly have my perspective,” Embree replied. “But the way we are seeing this play out has left the sides dangerously SUBMITTED PHOTO polarized.” Embree calls himself a “chronicler of conscience” and he Bitumen is viscous tar substance with highly flammable properties. explains the film was made with people in the Fraser Valley in mind and other B.C. regions, to give them a platform to by the proposed pipeline expansion for export-only bitumen. talk about how it might affect their transected properties to have “What we’re hearing from Hope was concern about everything 890,000 barrels of unrefined bitumen go from Alberta to the from issues around fair compensation and concern their use of the Lower Mainland for export. land won’t be impeded,” he said.

OPEN HOUSE

Erin Knutson Hope Standard

The recent passing of beloved 76-year-old resident Jim Sinclair and former School Board Trustee Chair for the Fraser Cascade School District 78 of over thirty years, was felt across Hope, as flags were lowered to half mast in his honour by the School District this week. Friends, colleagues, and family members graciously remembered Jim when he passed on Saturday, June 13th, not only a pillar in the community, but a man with an endearing sense of humour and a passion for living, a man who loved everyone and was loved back without question, while fighting for the betterment of children wherever he went. After arriving in Hope with his lifetime partner and wife Jennifer in 1974, they started a successful insurance business and the couple originally from Scotland, decided to stay and raise a family. “He lived for his girls,” said Jennifer Sinclair, Jim’s wife of 50 years. Jim is survived by his three daughters Karen, Heather and Janet with eight grandchildren between them. Jim was a lifetime member of the Legion, a Rotarian, and a dedicated volunteer in the community over the years, often championing his own children’s activities and inviting a group of kids over to the house to rehearse and eat pizza prior to a play at school. “He was everywhere and always available to students — he had a huge heart,” said colleague and Superintendent for District 78, Dr. Karen Nelson. Jim had a soft spot for First Nations issues and was very proactive on the Aboriginal Education Council, as well as inspiring and uplifting the children he frequently spent time with at the McAffrey Alternate School in Agassiz (ACE.) “He was someone who cared about the kids — he wasn’t condescending and treated them like little humans,” said colleague and ACE Principal Sandy Balascak. Subsequently, during one of the times that SUBMITTED PHOTO Jim was ill, a gaggle of kids loaded up a bus and went to visit him. Jim Sinclair was a force to be reckoned with, a supporter of children across the Fraser “He was absolutely thrilled to see them,” said Valley and a man who made a difference in everything he did.

Stewin fondly remembers fishing on her dad’s boat the Greggory who will be greatly missed by a community that cherished him.

B.C planning to add to aboriginal education When the city of Prince George was being established a century ago, the aboriginal people on the site of the present downtown area were relocated to a new reserve and their homes were burned. That's a part of B.C. history that many people in Prince George and around the province don't know, and an example of why changes are coming to B.C. school curriculum, says Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad. More changes will be announced soon for post-secondary education, based on the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. The B.C. government is providing $4.3 million to establish an emergency financial assistance for aboriginal students and $12 million for a scholarship program. "There have been attempts over the years to include more information around First Nations and our aboriginal history, but this is going quite a bit further and trying to tell a more complete history of us as Canadians, all Canadians," Rustad said. National Aboriginal Day was on Sunday, June 21. Rustad was in Prince George at a ceremony to rename Fort George Park to recognize the original inhabitants, the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation. A Lheidli T'enneh flag was raised at city hall where it will be permanently flown. National Aboriginal Day events were planned around the province, including a three-day cultural festival at the Royal B.C. Museum in Victoria with dance, arts and crafts and traditional foods. The past year has been pivotal for aboriginal relations in B.C., with the Supreme Court of Canada's landmark decision recognizing aboriginal title to traditional territory of the Tsilhqot'in Nation near Williams Lake. The province is working on a protocol to manage access by non-aboriginal people to the Nemiah Valley, where provincial jurisdiction no longer applies. While progress in treaty negotiations has been slow, the B.C. government continues to reach resource revenue sharing agreements with First Nations around the province, covering forestry, mining and oil and gas projects.

Hot start for the season in forest fires in B.C. By Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C. started the week with seven new wildfires on its map, for a total of 470 recorded so far in a hot start to the remarkable 2015 forest fire season. More than 60,000 hectares have burned so far, most of that from 150 fires in the Prince George fire centre region. Two new fires were reported on southeasterm Vancouver Island and a third at Nimpkish Lake on northern Vancouver Island this week. By Wednesday there were 14 new and active fires in the Kootenay and

Okanagan regions. Environment Canada forecast a 60 per cent chance of rain by Friday in the Kamloops and Prince George areas, with continued dry weather expected through the weekend in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. Chilliwack set new high temperature records at the beginning of this week, and drier than normal conditions have prevailed across much of the province. The Cisco Road fire south of Lytton in the Fraser Canyon grew to 1,370 hectares and was only 20 per cent contained as of last Wednesday.

The Lytton First Nations issued an evacuation order and other areas of the Thompson Nicola Regional District were on evacuation alert, with sprinklers deployed to protect threatened buildings. The Little Bobtail Lake fire west of Prince George was contained at about 25,000 hectares with no loss of structures, but its intense burn weakened root systems of standing trees and people were still being warned to avoid the disturbed area. Another large fire burned 18,000 hectares near Fort Nelson before it was contained with the help of rainfall.

Conservative lip service won’t solve retirement income crisis More and more Canadians are worried about their retirement, yet Stephen Harper is offering them little more than lip-service for the problem. A new CIBC report shows that millions of Canadians face a “steep decline in living standards” in retirement. Personal debt in Canada is at a record high. Meanwhile, three-quarters of private sector workers don’t have a workplace pension plan. The average 35-year-old puts aside less than half of what their parents did at the same age. On average, baby boomers’ retirement savings are short $400,000. If we don’t find a solution to this problem now, Canadians will pay with higher costs later on. Instead of helping, Mr. Harper has made things worse. He eliminated Income Trusts, destroying about $25-billion in value from Canadians’ savings. He also broke his word by delaying Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement until the age of 67, taking over $30,000 away from each vulnerable senior.  His only “solutions” have been a collection of tax breaks for wealthier households. None of these changes have helped ease the pending crisis for Canadians anxious about their future.

What we need is a modest, phased-in expansion of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).  The CPP, along with the Quebec Pension Plan, is a defined-benefit pension plan that covers every Canadian worker, in every job, in every province. Actuaries have declared it sound for 75 years—the furthest they will go for any plan. But its benefits are too low. The average CPP monthly benefit is only about $640. Mr. Harper has blocked every effort from the provinces to enhance the CPP. His infamous “firewall” letter even called on Alberta to withdraw from the pension plan entirely. Now, on the eve of an election, he’s promising a study on changes to the CPP. But a study won’t protect Canadians in their golden years.  Canadians work hard. They deserve a pension plan that they can depend on for a dignified retirement.  Liberals are committed to working with the provinces and territories to expand the CPP and lift the retirement savings of all Canadians.  A Liberal government will also restore the starting age for OAS and GIS to 65. Scott Brison, MP

Worsening drought in the Hope area has citizens concerned for the well-being of local green belts We are very concerned about the worsening drought in the Hope area. Has the Fire Chief of Hope made preparations not only to prevent wild fires in our green belts, but how to react to one quickly and efficiently? For example there should be signs posted and fines threatened for smoking on any of the trails.

Are the relevant fire hydrants in proper working condition? Are there enough hoses available to reach any point along the trails? What about the pumps that may be needed, are they in good working condition? It would also be helpful if the tinder dry debris from the last ice storm was re-

moved. I hope the Fire Chief can tell us that he and his crew are prepared and ready to deal with any emergency. I also hope he can tell us what these preparations are. Hartmut Schmid.

We must reject the politics of fear The Conservative government talks a good game on freedom, but their words don’t match their record. Their instincts are now to be suspicious of people who do not share their beliefs, to harden divisions with people whose views differ from their own.  This represents an extension of Stephen Harper’s politics of fear and division.   They have accused two leaders of the NDP of sympathizing with terrorists, acclaimed human rights activist and former Minister of Justice Irwin Cotler of anti-Semitism, and declared that “you’re either with us, or you’re categorized with the child pornographers.”  Such rhetoric might work politically in the short term, but it’s corrosive over time. It stokes anxiety and foments fear. That’s not

This evening’s showing is a celebration to commemorate two years of programming for the Hope Film Club and will be met with the greatly anticipated screening of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The Film Club is going to screen the 1977 original version, which does not exist on Blu-Ray. George Lucas updated his original trilogy in the late 1990s with the assistance of technology and computer animation not available to him when he first made the films. Some of these extra features are enjoyable for the sake of interest, but there is much debate about whether or not the bonus material improves the film in any way (or if in fact, it makes it worse). It is the Club's understanding that George Lucas views the updated version as the new definitive version and this explains why the 'original' is

In honour of Legion Week, Hope’s Royal Canadian Legion Branch No 228 is sending out a call to all interested citizens who have a passion for country and community service to join the ranks, during their annual membership drive. “We donate locally — we have a poppy fund for veterans that helps to assist with different medical needs or equipment,” Heather Bergstrom, a member of Branch No 228 told The Hope Standard. There are currently eleven WWII veterans living in Hope. The honourable service of these brave individuals has not been forgotten and the continuation of the Legion and the necessity of recruiting new members, provides important resources to protect and care for these distinguished citizens in the manner that should be awarded for their selfless efforts during the war. The Legion currently has 60,000 active members across Canada who have contributed more than 600,000 volunteer hours each year. Their invaluable service, ensures

that specialized BC/Yukon programs supporting modern day veterans remain operational.

Hope emergency notifications for 2015 The 753 water agreement affects citizens who need a temporary connection to District water, as a Campfire ban cautions all on current fire restrictions for the summer season 753 agreement Story submitted

A powerful connection to what matters most

The District of Hope has entered into an agreement with 753 Water Works to assist in providing water to their customers as citizens of Hope. This allows for an emergency temporary connection to the District’s water system, until such time as repairs and upgrades can be made to the 753 system, so it can operate independently again. During this emergency temporary connection, customers of the 753 system are advised that they must now adhere to District of Hope water use regulations, including watering restrictions now in effect. Please check the District Website www. hope.ca for current restrictions and more information.

Campaigning for the bears of Hope Erin Knutson Hope Standard

be relocated with the cubs, but they are still faced with similar issues.” Because of the climate bears have been coming out of hibernation early, so starting in the middle of May this year, the group has been canvasing door-to-door and telling residents to put garbage on the streets the morning of pick up and to get the bird feeders off the ground. “Everything should be secure and out of reach including petroleum and paints, which the bears love, basically anything that’s not in a fridge should be secure,” said Koot. The gentle giants are often misunderstood. They are curious, intelligent, loving mother’s and are highly respectful of their human counterparts as long as their space is taken into consideration. “If you are on a hike, always yell out hey bear, if it hears your voice it will stay away and be alerted to the presence of humans in the area.” The Black Bear Committee has created two brochures: Living with Bears and Staying Safe in Wildlife Country, which are distributed on Thursday’s at the Skagit by the group and Friends of the Skagit to inform, protect and help prevent further human-bear incidents.

After witnessing the traumatic shooting of a black bear, Lydia Koot of Hope, knew that something had to be done about the human-bear relationship. Living in proximity to the majestic creatures, poses several challenges and many of them to the disadvantage of the native black bear. With the support of the community, the District, and a successful meeting with the Hope Mountain Centre Board — the Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee was formed. “I contacted several bear awareness groups to establish guidelines for the program and to see what it was all about,” said Koot of her initial contact with bear authorities and the conservation officer in Chilliwack (currently there is no CO for Hope.) The CO was imperative in the process of determining the current goals the program prescribes to, including a mandate to help resolve human-bear conflict through education, cooperation and community involvement. “If you do have a sighting — you can phone the CO and they will inform the call centre in Victoria of the incident, where it will be given a case number and put in a file, that is the extent of it,” said Koot. A lack of resources in terms of bear control, or CO intervention has left something to be desired in bear conservation officiating and Koot is adamant that incident prevention is in the hands of the people. Often a bear sighting will end up at the end of the barrel of a shotgun. Once a bear has been determined to be a public safety threat, it will be destroyed. More times than naught a crowd will gather to look at the cute cinnamon, blonde or black coloured star attraction and that’s the end. “A garbage bear is a dead bear,” said Koot, of the result of improper protocol when it comes to a common problem source — the yard, which boasts a smorgasbord of tempting fruit, garbage and other attractants that a bear will naturally flock to. The Committee has also started a gleaning program made up of volunteers, which offers free of charge to pick all kinds of fruit from people’s property and donate it to various organizations and charities around Hope. The Hope Secondary food program has benefitted from the gleaning process on occasion, as well as people struggling to make ends meet, who can’t afford to buy fruit. Striving to educate the public about keeping attractants to a minimum by stripping trees of fruit, proper and bear

safe garbage maintenance (which involves securing garbage properly, putting it on the curb and kicking bears off of your property) the Committee is making headway in bear conservation. Koot cautions homeowners to respect the bear by dissuading it from becoming too comfortable on the property. “It may look cute, but if you photograph it and allow it to take a nap, it will keep getting closer and closer, until one day you leave the door open on a hot day and find a bear in your kitchen,” said Koot. “If you scare the bear it will have a chance.” Attempts to relocate bears who are not repeat offenders, often fail due to the inability of the bear to successfully navigate in its new environment, which is often the Coquihalla. Bears are often killed by competitors and starve for lack of topographic familiarity, or simply wander back to the original source of the incident. “Bears have amazing memories,” said Koot. “They are highly adept at finding their way back to the place of origin.” Incidents involving sows and cubs frequently end in the destruction of the mama bear and her babies being put into rehab according to Koot. “Sometimes a bear family or unit will

Smith’s soulful kitchen

Hope Standard

Hope Secondary School has a new chef in town, or a few — the foods program, which is a major success after being built from the ground up with the hard work, patience and dedication of cooking instructor and teacher, Jeremy Smith. Smith bravely took up the program which is now on hiatus with the advent of another school year gone by and the glorious summer months stretching ahead. He saw the opportunity to provide a lifeline to students who could prosper in the service industry and related fields, as they move on from HSS to pursue careers. The program is going into its fourth year and has come a long way since Smith walked through the door in 2012. In a short time, Smith has transformed the food program and the kids along with it. “I have to put a lot of time into recipes — I want the kids to be successful, so I break them down step-by-step,” said Smith. The program a smooth operation now, was once running at a diminished

The incredible shrinking man New weight loss program offered by Pharmasave promises astounding results Hope Standard

Harvey Robinson has lost something he took a long time to acquire — and he doesn’t care if he ever gets it back. He lost 11 inches from his waist and about 85 pounds in five months, with the help of a diet and wellness program based at the Hope Pharmasave. In addition to the weight loss, Robinson says he has kicked his daily dosage of Tylenol 3 medications and his sleep apnea problems have also subsided. His story has a long history of poor health, but Robinson’s big change started over the Christmas break in 2014. “I was having some problems with my back and my doctor said there wasn’t much more she could do, as I was already taking up to six T-3s a day. I have a slipped disk and they wouldn’t operate on me because I was overweight,” said Robinson. When the doctor said the last option was morphine pills, that was his signal that something had to change. At the suggestion of Robinson's wife Adrienne, he took a look at the Pharmasave program run by a woman named Ronda Cushnie “I started on January 20th and lost sixteen-and-a-half pounds in the first week. After that, it’s been 5-6-5, but it’s slowing down now. Altogether, I've lost about 85 pounds,” said Robinson, who certainly looks different than he did when he was pushing 323 pounds. People would see him in the street and worry that he was sick. He’d like everyone to know it’s exactly the opposite. He’s getting healthier and there's no need to worry. “I used to go for a walk around the high school and I’d have to stop — I don’t know how many times this happened — just to get around the school. Now I can do it without stopping," he said. “I have a CPAP machine that forces me to breathe when I’m sleeping. I got it in 2008. After starting the program, I haven’t used it.” When he slips into the size 6X swim trunks he once wore at the local pool, the difference is astounding. Robinson used to have no trouble playing Santa Claus for local schools at their Christmas assemblies. From now on, he’ll need pillows or he’ll be

Cushnie explained: “Basically, we’re reducing calories and carbs, while giving enough protein to maintain muscle mass. We encourage an alkaline diet, with two green salads per day and four cups of vegetables — and up to eight ounces of meat.” Not all vegetables are allowed, though. Any which are high in sugar content are nixed: so corn, peas, carrots and beets are taken off the plate. Fruits as also dropped — though tomatoes are allowed. Spices and hot sauce are not limited. Hydration is huge. Robinson figures he’s downing six litres of water per day. The withdrawn foods can be reintroduced in the later phases, with weekly coaching and daily emailed tips to maintain a healthy new balance. “One-on-one coaching and weekly consultations boost accountability,” said Cushnie. “We encourage clients to keep a food journal, as this helps them to stay focused on what’s going into their mouth.” With the program based at the pharmacy, clients can have their medications adjusted regularly by the pharmacist without necessarily visiting the doctor. One woman in the program had her type-2 diabetes medication reduced to zero over time. “You get into type 2 diabetes with food — and you can get out of it with different food,” said Cushnie.The program has a selection of foods that are sold at the store and these are provided in a starter kit, included in the $250 program fee.
