City officials are looking for support from other levels of government as Chilliwack continues to struggle with homelessness. The issue will be up for discussion at the annual meeting of the Union of B.C. Municipalities in Vancouver next week. BLACK PRESS FILE

Chilliwack vows renewed action on homelessness Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack is taking its fight against homelessness to the next level. A new action plan is in the works by a multi-agency task force, said Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz. They’re determined to map out new strategies despite the fact that the local homeless numbers fell 34 per cent — from 111 to 73 people — last year. “Although this responsibility rests with the provincial government, we want to be proactive in formalizing plans that will help house people in Chilliwack,” announced Gaetz in a news release Tuesday. The topic is set to come up on the floor of the Union of B.C.

Municipalities at the annual convention next week in Vancouver. “Having a formal strategy will be helpful when approaching senior levels of government for funding and in identifying possible cost-sharing opportunities,” said Gaetz. But specific efforts will be directed toward “entrenched” homeless, those who refuse help. Homelessness is not unique to Chilliwack, but the consensus is that a comprehensive provincewide strategy is sorely needed. “Ultimately, we want the province to put resources into homelessness and initiate a provincial homeless action plan,” said Mayor Gaetz. “Although we are hopeful that several upcoming resolutions at UBCM will demonstrate this universal need

to senior levels of government, we want to continue the good work our community has been doing to ensure that everyone can access shelter and formalize a Chilliwack homeless action plan.” Given the reduced homeless count numbers that came out last year, it’s clear programs in place are making a substantial difference by offering street people a range of shelter options from subsidized to supportive housing. “We hope this task force will not only address health and wellness concerns related to homelessness in Chilliwack, but also that it will help better utilize public safety resources while ensuring all residents feel safe in our community,” said Councillor Sue Attrill, Chair

of Chilliwack’s Public Safety Advisory Committee. Added Councillor Ken Popove, co-chair of Chilliwack Healthier Community: “We are proud to have such a compassionate and caring community here in Chilliwack. We would like to encourage residents to make the best use of their donations by supporting one of the many social service organizations in Chilliwack.” Work on the new action plan will begin by identifying the causes of homelessness and strategies to address each cause. The new task force will bring together reps from City of Chilliwack, Chilliwack Healthier Community, RCMP, Pacific Community Resources Society, Ruth and Naomi’s Mission and Salvation Army.

First day jitters can be difficult. The sweaty palms, the nervous speech, and separation anxiety can plague any child. But in general, those feelings are normal human behaviors, says Helen Edwards, Fraser Health’s clinical coordinator for the Early Psychosis Intervention Program. Anxiety is good in small doses, and can even help us focus on the task at hand, she says. But when anxiety takes over, it can be disastrous. “Anxiety is worr y,” Edwards explains. “Worry that the worst thing that could happen, Helen Edwards will happen. Our brain chemistry is not meant to keep that adrenaline going. It would kill us if we lived with that anxiety all day long.” So, she says, anxiety needs to identified so children can be given the tools to learn how to manage their feelings. “They don’t even have the words yet for these feelings,” Edwards explains, making the anxiety even more difficult. And it can manifest in different ways. Young boys and girls deal with anxiety differently, she points out. “As much as we want to say we’re all the same, there are differences between genders,” she said. “We respond to situations differently, and our societal pressures are different.”

Candidates quizzed on implications of pipeline expansion Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The plan by Kinder Morgan to twin its TransMountain pipeline through Chilliwack has been a hot topic for months. Of particular concern is what impact construction – or an accident – could have on the SardisVedder Aquifer which lies in its path. The Progress continues its federal election series, zeroing in on questions that matter to local voters. Five candidates were asked if they were in favour of the pipeline expansion, and what they would do as MP to ensure that Chilliwack is protected from a major spill. (Their

full responses can be found under the 2015 Federal Election tab at www.theprogress.com.) Conservative candidate Mark Strahl said that as MP, he has always maintained that the pipeline expanmust be subject A D sion A to “a rigorous, sciN CA entific review” by the National Energy Board, and “should only proceed” if it can be shown to be safe for people and the environment. “As someone who was born, raised and is raising a family here, I understand the concerns regarding new pipelines in our community,” he said. “We all want to see our precious water, air and land resources protected.” A Conservative government would “continue to protect the

ES VOT 5

201

environment and our economy,” and that includes protecting jobs in the natural resource sector. “Through our Responsible Resource Development plan, our Conservative government is ensuring that we have the best standards for pipeline and marine tanker safety in the world. We have increased the number of independent annual pipeline inspections by 50 per cent; and have doubled the number of comprehensive pipeline safety audits in order to identify issues before they occur.” For Green Party candidate Thomas Cheney, it’s about the unique risks posed to the environment and human health. “I am greatly concerned about the shipment of diluted bitumen, or dilbit, by pipeline through our community,” he said. “Unlike the conventional crude and other

light hydrocarbons that have been shipped on the TransMountain pipeline for decades, diluted bitumen poses unique risks for both human health and the environment.” A spill would release toxic gases threatening human health, he added, “a fact known all too well” by residents of the Kalmazoo, Michigan where Enbridge left a toxic mess in the local river. “If I were MP, I would oppose the expansion of the Kinder-Morgan TransMountain Pipeline to protect our community and coastline from spills,” Cheney said. Both the Liberal and NDP candidates, underlined in the first line of their responses to Question 3, that a strong economy and a healthy environment were not mutually exclusive. Liberal candidate Louis De

Jaeger said Canadians deserve both. “It is the government’s responsibility to deliver prosperity with a shrinking environmental footprint,” he said. The economic benefits derived from the energy sector are not in question. “However, we need an environmental review process that is objective and fair to all; it must be credible, scientific, and achievable. Pipeline companies such as Kinder Morgan must understand and respect the fact that they need a social license from all aspects of the communities that are impacted by their work and this must include all First Nations.” NDP Candidate Seonaigh MacPherson said the economy and the environment “go hand in hand.” Continued: PIPELINE/ p11

Cyclists ride coast-to-coast to fight childhood cancer Sam Bates The Progress The crowd in the Sears parking lot erupted in applause last week as 23 tenacious cyclists rolled in. It was only Day 1 of the eighth annual Sears National Kids Cancer Ride (SNKCR), a 17-day biking journey from coast to coast. When the riders arrive in Halifax on September 26, they will have travelled 7,000 km. Each day, the exuberant cyclists stop at local Sears stores and paediatric oncology centres to meet children and families from the childhood cancer community. These are the people they are fighting for. As the riders stopped in Chilliwack, their path was lined with posters depicting the faces and stories of children who have been affected by cancer. Ulana Kopystansky dismounted from her bike and knelt down by one sandwich board that read, “Taissa, 1987-2001.” “That’s my baby,” she said. Ola McIntosh, general manager of Sears Chilliwack, thanked the riders and volunteers for their outstanding dedication and generosity. After riding anywhere from 140 to 300 km per day, the cyclists sleep in one of two semi trucks. Carl Foster, a SNKCR truck driver for five years, guided guests through the interior of the truck, lined with bunk beds and pictures of the kids that inspire them. Kristen Kuzemko from Toronto rides for the children on the cancer floor of the hospital where she volunteers, and for her family members who have been diagnosed.

was a different person. “It’s a journey that – if you allow it to – will change you.” Also part of the ‘wheel family,’ and the only 2015 rider from B.C., was Bob Ahuja. “He is our local hero,” said McIntosh. “A lot of kids lose the opportunity to ride their bike,” Ahuja struggled to say. “They’re stuck in a hospital, or even worse, they’ve passed away.” For Ahuja, the ride provides hope for kids like Rohit, his young cousin who battled the devastating disease. “He was 10 when he was diagnosed, and fought for four years before he passed away at age 14.” He and Rohit shared a special bond, and Thursday was a particularly difficult yet heartwarming day for Ahuja as family supported him at the B.C. stops.

Sears Chilliwack hopes to raise $8,000 in store, $5,000 of which will go towards Ahuja’s fundraising goal of $25,000. The Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation has a 100 per cent donation model. Since the SNKCR began in 2008, $9 million has been raised to improve the quality of life for children impacted by cancer and to fund cancer research programs at Canadian hospitals. Amongst the Chilliwack crowd were Mark Strahl (MP Chilliwack - Fraser Canyon), Jason Lum (councillor, City of Chilliwack), Dr. Gwen Point (Chancellor of University of the Fraser Valley), and Laurie Throness (MLA Chilliwack Hope). Each speaker shared stories of their family and friends who’ve

had cancer, and thanked the riders for the sacrifices they’ve made to take part in the event. The riders were thrilled to meet Rolly Fox, father of Terry Fox, whose presence and words inspired the entire crowd. “It was the children that Terry saw in the cancer wards that inspired him to do his run across Canada,” he explained, a motivation that resonates strongly with SNKCR participants. “One of the greatest gifts that you can get is time, and time is precious,” said Dr. Point. “The time that you’re giving so that other children and families can walk through a journey struck with cancer, is immeasurable.” To view the national schedule, the full list of 2015 riders, or to donate, visit searsnationalkidscancerride.com.

Joe Hall has stepped down as president of Sto:lo Nation Chiefs’ Council, the political wing of Sto:lo Nation, after 10 years at the helm. Squiala Chief David Jimmie takes on the role of president, replacing Grand Chief Hall. “I am proud to welcome such an experienced and youthful person to the presidency of the SNCC,” said Hall in a news release Wednesday. “This transition demonstrates the commitment to long-term succession planning and keeping high-caliber, capable leaders at the head of our Chiefs’ Council.” David Jimmie brings a “unique blend” of business, education and governance expertise to the table. Along with a Master’s in Business Administration, he’s worked for Chilliwack School District and in the residential/commercial construction industry. Continued: STO:LO/ p5

Reasons to support Terry Fox not hard to find Jessica Peters The Progress There are a lot of people I could walk for, people I do remember, during cancer fundraising walks and relays. With each step, my thoughts drift to them, pull up memories, and mourn for moments lost. There was my aunt Sally. My own grandfather, Bill. My children’s grandfather, Billy. I could also walk for those in my family who have survived cancer, and those who are fighting it right this very moment. And I have in the past. But when invited to join in the Silver Fox Block Walk with the Hampton House residents last Friday, the name on my mind was LileeJean. Never has a little girl claimed such a large piece of my heart, which is almost ridiculous since I barely had met her. But like many others, thousands of others, I followed her story closely through the very open and honest online writings of her parents. Her light shone especially bright, somehow. But cancer has snatched away so many of our loved ones, and that reality hit home while spending the morning with some of the commu-

nity’s most elderly residents. One by one, the Hampton House residents named who they were walking for this year. “My cousin Ruth.”

“My aunt Mable.” “My sister Lilian.” “My wife, Moreen.” “Evelyn.” “Luke.”

“My sons.” It’s hard not to shed a tear at the magnitude of loss in one room. Some of the grief is fresh,

while for others the pain has subsided over time. This was the fifth year the Hampton House has rallied its residents to get out and walk the block, to remember their loved ones and pay tribute to Terry Fox. They each fundraise and put in the effort to be a part of the walk, even those who use walkers, or who may need a hand to hold. Hampton’s lifestyle coordinator Tracy McDonald keeps their spirits up along the route, chatting with residents along the way, and even breaking out into song with them. Each year, they carry the names of their loved ones on stickers on their chests. And each year, they hope they don’t have to add any more to the list. Residents will be collecting donations from friends and family on behalf of the Terry Fox Foundation until the day of the official community run on Sept. 20. That run gets underway at 9 a.m. at the Landing Sports Complex on Spadina, with registration opening at 7:30 a.m. This year, organizers are hoping to raise $20,000.

News B.C., chiefs pledge to work on reconciliation New head for Sto:lo Nation STO:LO from page 3 achievement. Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg was appointed parliamentary secretary in charge of developing the sports awards. A framework document agreed to at the meeting commits the province and First Nations Leadership Council members to keep working on a reconciliation agreement that would settle historic land claims across the province. Clark said the agreement would have to include provisions for the unique aspects of more than 200 First Nations. Grand Chief Ed John of the First Nations Summit

Tom Fletcher Black Press B.C. cabinet ministers and 500 aboriginal leaders emerged from two days of meetings in Vancouver Thursday with a pledge to work on divisive resource development issues and hold a province-wide forum on aboriginal children in government care. Premier Christy Clark also announced the establishment of a $2 million fund for scholarships for aboriginal students pursuing post-graduate degrees, and a new set of awards for aboriginal youth athletic

said the first two years of these province-wide meetings have gotten off to a rocky start, but expressed the hope that “by year 10 we’ll have paved the road.” In his closing speech, John reflected on his own time at a residential school, and described a new generation of young people that is emerging from the social upheaval of that policy. “I couldn’t even see my sister on the other side of the building, even though she was in the same residential school as I was,” John said. “That disconnect became the norm for us.” Chief Shane Gottfriedson,

regional representative of the Assembly of First Nations, echoed John’s call for a resolution to land issues that started in 1859 when colonial Governor James Douglas proclaimed that all lands and resources in B.C. belong to Crown. Chief Rober t Chamberlin, vice president of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, said last year’s landmark land title decision in favour of the Tsilhqot’in Nation means action is required to address territorial claims. “It is the Canadian law that First Nations want to see implemented,” he said.

Jimmie was first elected to Squiala First Nation government in 2009 and currently is the elected chief. He is also serving as the CEO of Squiala and president of the Ts’elxeweyeqw Tribe. “I am truly honored and humbled to be undertaking the role of SNCC President,” said Chief Jimmie. “It means so much having the Chiefs support to take on such a role and I will do my best to follow in the footsteps of Grand Chief Joe Hall.” He acknowledged “the immense contribution” Hall made on behalf of the SNCC during his time at the helm. Hall’s knowledge and experience has been extremely valuable in advancing the issues brought forward by the SNCC. “I look forward to the new role with the SNCC and contributing to the advancement of the organization while assisting our member First Nations,” said Jimmie. The SNCC represents 11 Sto:lo communities, including: Aitchelitz, Leq’a:mel, Matsqui, Popkum, Sq’ewá:lxw, Skowkale, Shxwha:y Village, Squiala, Sumas, Tzeachten, and Yakweakwioose.

“The secret to retirement is that you retire to something,” said Bob Saucier, administrator at Chilliwack Senior Peer Counsellors. Senior Peer Counselling (SPC) provides volunteers with a sense of purpose that they may feel is lacking in their retirement. The free, one-onone SPC service pairs referred senior clients who may be lonely or isolated with a volunteer friend who provides emotional support through listening, empathy and guidance. The program is currently recruiting volunteers for their fall training session. Chilliwack SPC, one of 33 peer support groups in B.C. has been operating since 2000. Irene Lawrin, President and long-time volunteer with Chilliwack SPC, explained that “the format has stayed large-

ly the same since it started: we’re there for seniors.” Vo l u n t e e r - c l i e n t pair Joan Sheanh and Dolores Weston have been matched since 2012, and they demonstrate just how important this program is to local seniors. Like many SPC clients, Dolores lost her spouse after a long, happy marriage. As the rest of her family resides in Ontario, it was important for her to find someone local to connect with. Joan, a retired teacher from Prince George, signed up for the training in an effort to meet others and do something meaning-

ful in her retirement. It didn’t take long for Joan to find her compatible match in Dolores. The training course for the SPC program takes six-weeks, meeting twice per week. Throughout the training, volunteers will gain extensive knowledge that allows them to effectively listen and engage with their senior buddy. “We tackle different subjects each week,” Saucier explained. Volunteers are prepared to communicate with seniors who may have particular health concerns, like Alzheimer’s. They are trained to empathize

with grief, promote active aging, and set constructive goals. By becoming more informed than your average friend, the volunteers can direct their senior to additional support if they recognize a pressing issue, such as elder abuse. Retirees are best suited to volunteer for the SPC program, as they bring “a lifetime of knowledge and wisdom from many different areas of expertise,” said Christine Schmidtke, SPC administrator. “We have volunteers who are retired nurses, accountants, Continued: SPC/ p7

social workers, you name it,” each of whom provides a unique set of skills which may be compatible with a specific client. Joan and Dolores get together once per week for lunch and shopping. “We always go to McDonald’s,” Dolores laughs. “We can’t help it.” No matter what they do, they cherish their time together, “we clicked right from the beginning. I’m over the moon to have met her,” Dolores enthused. “It’s great to feel that you’re helping someone,” Joan added, whether that means lending an ear or accompanying them to the grocery store. “The volunteers are looking after the emotional needs of these people in a way that, often, no one else is,” Saucier pointed out. If you’re retired, looking for a sense of fulfillment, and wanting to give back to your community, sign-up for the free SPC training program. “Right now, we’re so desperate for volunteers that we have a waiting list of clients,” Schmidtke stresses. SPC even facilitates “phoner volunteers” who call clients to chat and check-in, if they’re unable to volunteer in-person. The fun and informative training, taught by Helene Long, takes place at the Chilliwack Senior Peers office at 45938 Wellington, beginning September 21 at 9 a.m.. Those who are interested in volunteering can learn more at chilliwackseniorpeercounsellors. org and reserve a spot by calling 604-793-7204.

A collective effort needed There seems no shortage of armchair solutions to the problem of homelessness in Chilliwack. Were it only that easy. This week the City of Chilliwack announced another attempt to find an answer – this time marshaling local resources while tapping into the collective strength of the Union of B.C. Municipalities. Critics quickly dismissed the effort, citing what they see as a litany of failed attempts and insincere tries. In fact, Chilliwack has made significant gains in addressing the issue. Five years ago the 23 transitional units in the Chilliwack Health and Housing Centre didn’t exist. There were no transitional and emergency shelter beds (44 in total) at Ruth and Naomi’s. The 33 units at The Village on School Street had yet to be built. And the four emergency shelter beds for at risk youth at the Cyrus Centre were also only a dream. In all, there are currently 142 transitional beds, as well as 22 emergency shelter beds in the city. There has also been an increase in options that provide greater affordabilithy. Is that enough? Clearly not. But to suggest no effort has been made to help people get off the

streets is simply wrong. The fact that there are people still living under bridges and sleeping in city parks illustrates the complexity of the issue. Part of that complexity is sorting out responsibility. Municipalities are not equipped, nor were they ever intended, to fund and provide complex social services for their residents. This has traditionally been the purview of other levels of government. And yet, after the federal and provincial governments essentially abandoned the field, this is where cities like Chilliwack find themselves. Unlike some communities, Chilliwack has stepped up to fill that gap. Private citizens, businesses and politicians have worked behind the scenes to find long-term solutions that will work within the limited parametres of a municipal mandate. They understand more needs to be done. But they also know it will take more than an unwanted couch dumped under a bridge, or pithy online comments, to fix the problem. It will take a collective community effort – and pressure on higher levels of government to do their part. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

Little bits of plastic adding up to big ocean problem Where humans go, litter follows. We are unarguably the most wasteful species on the planet. Along benches, pull-outs, river banks, and forestry roads in the Chilliwack River Valley, shotgun shells by the million, appliances, TVs, broken bits of furniture, and abandoned garbage clutter the backcountry. The irresponsible lowlifes who dump this stuff for target practice really couldn’t care less about the consequences, the hazards to people, and the dangers facing wildlife from all the glass and shards of plastic embedded in what could otherwise be walking or grazing areas. If garbage is a big problem in the local backcountry it’s a huge problem in the oceans where plastics have become the DDT of the modern age. Back in the 1960s, author Rachel Carson sounded the alarm in her book Silent Spring about

the impact of pesticides on wildlife and collapsing populations of bird species due to eggshell thinning. Now, scientists see a parallel with floating plastics and microplastics threatening marine life at every level of the food chain. Since the 1970s waste plastic carried by ocean currents has swirled into huge concentrations popuMargaret larly known as EVANS the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Some claim it is twice the size of Texas. But in reality there are several of these huge patches. According to a recent study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), plastic waste concentrations have now reach 580,000 pieces per

square kilometre and it is increasing exponentially, doubling every 11 years. The Australian and U.K.-based authors said that a review of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity documented over 600 species from micro-organisms to whales that are affected by marine plastic waste mainly from ingestion. This not only creates a potential blockage in the gut but organ damage from leaching toxins. A study published in February this year in the journal Science estimated that between four and 12 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean annually. Researchers from the University of California Santa Barbara looked at 192 coastal countries and their plastics disposal in 2010. They calculated that eight million metric tons of shopping bags, toys, bottles, food wrappers, and

other plastic waste drifted into the world’s oceans that year. Of even greater concern is the pervasive, almost invisible, contamination of micro-plastics a millimeter or smaller in size and which have been found everywhere from layers of sediment in deep ocean to the frozen Arctic. With particles this small, birds mistake them for fish eggs and digest them. Add to that the fact that plastics contain harmful chemicals such as Bisphenol A, phthalates, and flame retardants that can impact the endocrine system and contain toxic components linked to cancer. Moving up the marine food chain, these residues could get into commercial food stocks and, ultimately, be eaten by humans. And when you add plastics pollution to coastal development, climate change, warming waters, acidic oceans, toxic algae blooms, and overfishing,

it shouldn’t surprise anyone that fish stocks have halved since 1970 with some stocks down 75 per cent according to a recent World Wildlife Fund report. Seabirds are as vulnerable as fish. Based on historical records over the past 60 years, the researchers writing in PNAS estimate that the ingestion rate of plastics by seabirds is around 90 per cent and will increase to 99 per cent of all seabird species by 2050. The answer to this mess is obvious. Better knowledge. Better enforcement. Better management. The European Union has already demonstrated that improved practices have reduced losses from industrial processes leading to less plastic ingestion by tubenosed seabirds called fulmars. In our local backcountr y, a similar refit is long overdue to curb that toss-away mentality.

Strategic voting in Chilliwack change.” Having decided this, voters are faced with what can be a difficult choice. They know they want to vote for change but which party, which candidate would be best make this happen? Well the two previous federal election results in our riding can give some valuable insights into this. Here are the numbers: 2008 Election Conservatives 62.32% of the vote NDP 18.76% of the vote Green 8.77% of the vote Liberal 8.52% of the vote 2011 Election Conservatives 57.20% of the vote NDP 25.78% of the vote Liberal 10.81% of the vote Green 5.50% of the vote After looking at these numbers the only strategic vote to facilitate

change in our riding would be for the NDP who consistently come a relatively close second to the conservatives. Liberal candidates have come a distant third in the last two elections here. For this election we have a new and improved electoral district. Our riding no longer stretches up the Fraser Canyon and beyond. Agassiz is no longer in our riding. Chilliwack-Hope is everything south of the Fraser River and east to include all of Hope. Will this make a difference in the outcome of this election? It probably won’t, at least not in any significant way. Changes in the election results here will more likely be a result of this desire for change both locally and in Ottawa.

While canvassing neighborhoods for our NDP candidate, Seonaigh MacPherson, I have found a majority of people expressing a need for change. No surprise really as this is a nationwide feeling being promoted by all three competing party leaders. When any political party has been in power for two or more terms, democracy usually calls for change. Change is often good but for some voters it’s a little scary. Human nature is such that change can present too many unknowns. This is particularly true with changes in leadership. Many of us are of the opinion that we might be better off with the “Devil we know.” However, this time around I think people are thinking and saying, “Enough is enough. It’s definitely time for

Road access closure not a solution My husband and I have been camping every weekend since May long this year. One of our favorite areas is a FSR in Chilliwack. This past weekend we drove up and saw that one of the spots we frequent had been blocked off with large boulders and dirt piles. Upon speaking to a local park host I was informed this had been done because too many young adults were heading there, partying and leaving a huge mess. I guess my question is what did

blocking the campsite accomplish? Do you think that the groups of campers that go there decided to go home? No, they have ventured further up the mountain to leave their mess in an area that is less frequented. The only thing you did accomplish is blocking a site that campers like us in our RV frequent and clean up from the previous campers for the next campers. Yes in a perfect world, these young adults would know to clean up after themselves, but apparently

they don’t. So now I have one less place to camp, the young adults are up the mountain having a good time but thank goodness this one spot at the bottom is clean, blocked off and non-usable but in good condition. I clean up a local park in Abbotsford because people of all ages do not know how to clean up after themselves. Hmmm, maybe we should close the park ? Darlene Gabel

Fishing guide comes to the rescue We wish to extend a great big thank you to the great guy from Great River Fishing Adventures. Due to engine failure, we were caught up in the strong Fraser River current and drifting steadily downstream.    Our boat is large enough and

stable on the water so we weren’t in any danger, but at the mercy of where the river would take us. We were now miles down the river when this kind fellow came to our assistance.  Even with his clients aboard his boat, in the heavy rain of

that day, he generously offered his help. He towed us off the Fraser and up the Sumas Canal to Barrowtown boat launch. This trip took about thirty minutes and it would be easy to guess that he burned off a tremendous amount of fuel in his large jet-prop boat.

He declined any reimbursement for his time or expense. He wished us well and asked us to return the favor if ever needed.  In a heartbeat!  Thank you again from Dave and Walt. Dave Lumsden, Chilliwack

Giving school kids tools to cope Young boys tend to become more aggressive when anxious, less able to focus in school, and more easily distracted. But young girls tend to become more withdrawn, and may seem overly sad, looking downward, and not sharing their experiences with friends and family. But parents should watch for appetite changes, dif ficulty sleeping, and not wanting to go to school. Identifying new, school-based anxiety means knowing a child’s general temperance as a baseline, Edwards explained. “You need to focus on behaviors that are out of the ordinary,� she said. “For example, you

can’t label a reserved girl with anxiety if she’s always been reserved.� Edwards recently penned an article for Fraser Health outlining the ways parents can help their children cope with anxiety, to teach them how to eventually resolve conflict on their own. “Ask your child what’s making them worried,� she suggests. “Tell them that it is normal to have concerns. You can also share some of your own general fears to demonstrate this normalcy.� Helping kids name their feelings, including negative ones, can them identify how they’re coping sooner, and even give them control. “Kids have a great capacity to solve their own problems if we let

them,� she said. Even in situations where there is bullying, kids need to be given the tools – and the time – to sort out their differences on their own, she says. Teaching children to think out different solutions and then try them can give them power over their own lives. “Do not tell them ‘don’t worry!’ or ‘everything will be fine!’

Instead, encourage your child to problemsolve,� she says. Give them questions that help them think of solutions, Edwards suggests, like “what could you do if the worst happened and your ‘what-if’ came true?� To read Edwards’ entire article, titled 15 Ways To Help Your Child Cope With Back to School, visit news.fraserhealth.ca.

A leaked Conservative letter to B.C. business leaders is urging them to pull out the stops to fight a potential NDP federal election victory that it warns would devastate the province’s economy. “This election will be decided in B.C.,” said the letter from Industry Minister James Moore and former Conservative cabinet minister Stockwell Day. “We could end up with an NDP national government,” they said, predicting the result will be “higher taxes and a broken economy.” Although neither is a candidate in this election, the two Tories said they will take their message on the road and urged business leaders to work with them to convince voters to reelect the Harper government and reject the “dangerous policies” of the NDP. The letter also takes aim at Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s plan to cancel LNG tax incentives. But it mainly targets the provincial NDP’s record governing in the 1990s, saying it directly led to B.C. becoming a “have-not” province with 50,000 residents

forced to leave to find work elsewhere. “Now is not the time for risky experiments.” It echoes the B.C. Liberals’ economy-first attacks against “risky” Adrian Dix that helped persuade voters to reject the NDP in the 2013 provincial election, despite an early polling lead for the New Democrats. Philip Hochstein, president of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C., said he hopes the message resonates with voters. “I think the federal Conservatives are right to remind British Columbians about the lost decade of an NDP government,” he said, adding business leaders could be influential. “We have a history under the NDP, we know what it was like,” Hochstein said. “There was, in essence, a strike on capital – people stopped investing in British

Columbia.” He said the latest polls showing the Conservatives are running third place in a tight threeway race do not concern him. “The election will be won or lost on the economy and people will make the right decision.” SFU political science instructor Cara Camcastle said the tactic of dredging up the NDP’s record in Victoria may prove less effective this time because federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair has promised balanced budgets and, unlike Dix, has carefully avoided taking a premature stand against proposed pipelines. “The Conservatives are trying to put fear into those who are considering change,” she said. “But after 10 years in power, there will be some Conservative supporters who feel they’ve had their chance.” Canadian Taxpayers Federation spokesman Jordan Bateman said he’s not surprised by the letter. “In politics, you always go back to what’s worked,” Bateman said, but added the strategy is getting long in the tooth. “The NDP did some outrageous things in the ‘90s. But I’m not sure how that’s a complete predictor of future behaviour. It’s almost 20 years ago now.”

Retired florist Mary Schwanke creates a floral arrangement inspired by a piece of driftwood, in a demonstration by the Chilliwack Floral Art Club Wednesday afternoon at the Chilliwack Library. The club is open to new members and meets monthly. JESSICA PETERS/ PROGRESS

Discovering the art of floral arrangements Jessica Peters The Progress Every flower arrangement starts with one focal piece, one little bit of inspiration. It may be a particularly beautiful vase, or a stunning bloom, but there is always something that anchors the completed look. On Wednesday afternoon, as the Chilliwack Floral Art Club took over the lobby of the downtown library, Mary Schwanke explained this basic tenet of arranging. “For this arrangement, this piece of wood was my inspiration,” she said. Then, over the course of 20 minutes, she carefully placed flowers, greenery and even herbs together to create a fresh masterpiece. With the driftwood as the focal point, her chosen yellow, purple

and white blooms had the perfect background. Schwanke then carefully placed grasses, sunflowers, black-eyed Susans, white flowering chives, flowering kale, rosemary stems, broad leaves and trails of ivy. There are many ways to use colour in a flower arrangement, she said, and in this case, using the complementary colours yellow and purple make both of them stand out even more. Schwanke made the process look effortless, with quick, practiced hands tucking bits of green here and there, slowly revealing the flowing shape that she’d envisioned. Schwanke reveals that she has quite a bit of experience at the art of flower arranging, working 30 years as a florist. Now retired, she joined the group to keep her pas-

sion for the art alive. “I miss it so much,” she says of her former career. The Chilliwack Floral Art Club will celebrate 10 years next spring. They currently have about 40 members, 10 of who took some time to demonstrate different techniques at the library on Wednesday. They hold demonstrations throughout the year in different locations, and offer demos, lessons and workshops to their members at their monthly meetings. Jane Keding, one of the founders of the club, said they are always open to new members, and enjoy learning from each other and sharing their artistic endeavors with one another. They describe floral art as creative, rewarding and usable in every day life.

“You have so much outside your house, why not bring some of it inside to enjoy?” said Keding. The Chilliwack Floral Art Club meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 1:30 p.m. in the Slesse Room at Evergreen Hall. For more information, contact Jane at 604-846-5855, or visit them online at chilliwackfloralartclub. blogspot.com.

The 2015 Muck MS Canada takes place Oct. 3, at Dickland Farms in Greendale. Last year was the first time the MS Society of Canada hosted this type of fundraiser, and the participation and feedback was overwhelming, organizers said at the time. This is the only West Coast Muck MS event, and the event drew in participants from across the province, as well as plenty of teams made up of local businesses and organizations. Teams and individuals make their way through obstacles on a 5K trail through the farm and along the Vedder River. This year promises to bring more mud, new obstacles and returning favourites that will have you jumping, crawling, sliding and climbing things like mud beams, trenches, culverts and more. Timing chips are even used to keep precise track of final results, for the ultimate in bragging rights. Registration deadline is Sept. 30, and rates vary. For more information, visit www.muckms.ca, and click on the Chilliwack button on the main page. Need assistance? Contact Deanna.mcintyre@mssociety.ca or call 1-877-746-9331.

Celebrating Art The Chilliwack Library hosts artists in its lobby regularly. Earlier this month, the Spinners and Weavers held demonstrations. The next demos will be from woodturner Michael HamiltonClark on Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and then glass beadwork artists and jeweler Alicia Champ, Sept. 30 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

with just a little extra thought and planning. Most of us do a pretty good job in our gardens, but by taking them to another level, we can make them truly inspirational. The ‘wow’ factor gives us so much more aesthetic satisfaction and enjoyment. The art of combining bulbs is truly the magic that makes all the difference. Most of us know how to blend colours, but we are a little uncertain when it comes to timing the bloom of spring

Although it’s always nice to see the first bulbs of spring add their charm and brightness to an often wet, cold and sometimes Brian snowy MINTER late winter, their first appearance could be so much more. A bit of value-adding can bring the ordinary to an extraordinary level

Nicole Hill happily admits to having a passion for her community. “I do love Chilliwack. It’s really a great place to live!” It’s not a wonder that she feels this way given that she was born and raised here and that her paternal grandparents were well-established, local dairy farmers. While Nicole’s paternal grandparents were Ana part of the Chilliwack MACEDO fibre, her maternal grandparents were well travelled. “They moved around quite a bit. My grandfather worked in the area of aboriginal relations which necessitated frequent moves. They lived in Prince Rupert, Whitehorse and those sorts of places,” she said. During her school years, Nicole was active both academically and socially. “I really enjoyed school. I liked the work side as well as the social aspect of school. I played a lot of sports and was on many sports teams. In school, I played field hockey, volleyball

and basketball and outside of school, I played fastpitch. My younger brother played as many sports as I did and he even played baseball at a community college in the US and did fairly well,” she said proudly. Nicole credits her parents with some of the success for in as much as both her and her brother worked hard; her parents always supported and encouraged their endeavours. As high school graduation was appearing on the horizon, Nicole began thinking of going into engineering but eventually, her thoughts turned to kinesiology. “Given all the injuries that I had, it was a natural fit I suppose,” she chuckled lightly. Nicole went on to graduate from UCFV with a major in kinesiology and a minor in math. “I graduated but I never actually went into kinesiology. Instead, I worked at the Falls Golf Club.” From the time that she was 16, Nicole worked at the golf course. “I started off manning the snack cart and by the time that they closed and I left, I was doing their financials as well as working on weddings Continued: HILL/ p23

Then a number of years ago, the Chilliwack Fair was looking for a Marketplace Coordinator and Nicole was approached about taking on that role. “They were looking for someone to sell booths at the marketplace and since The Falls had closed, I went for it,� she smiled. From there, she was offered the position of Fair Coordinator. “I have just finished my second year in that capacity.� Nicole works and plays hard but admits that she still takes life one step at a time. Husband Aaron and daughter Axalia are a priority in her life but she also plays fastpitch, slowpitch, ball hockey and basketball. She also coaches basketball at Chilliwack Senior Secondary and with UFV’s Junior Cascades program. “I guess I work hard but it’s just what I do. I like to be busy,� she concluded.

Progress Eric

Smith a two-way standout for Grizz

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress One of the brightest stars on the GW Graham football team is a guy who’s good at flying under the radar. Emerson Smith finds his way into the spotlight on occasion — a touchdown run on a jet sweep in the 2013 AA junior varsity provincial championship got him some press. But he keeps his head down most of the time, letting his on-field exploits do the talking. This season, as his Grizzlies prepare for a run at the AA varsity title, Emerson figures to make an impact on both sides of the ball. If GWG does end up at BC Place in November, he’ll play a big role. “Emerson is an amazing offensive weapon, and in my eyes he is one of the top five receivers in the province,” says Grizzlies offensive coordinator Adam Smith. “He has amazing hands and he’s great in the air with the 50/50 balls.” “His major strength that lots of good receivers do not have is his route running. He runs amazing routes to get himself open and the other thing I love about him is after he catches the ball he is hard to bring down.” Ask Emerson and he’ll tell you he takes a lot of pride in route running. “I’m not the fastest guy in the world, so that’s what I work on the most,” he says. Emerson might also surprise you when he says he actually prefers playing defence. Specifically defensive back. “It always feels good to move the ball and score touchdowns, but I prefer DB because I

like to hit people,” he says with a grin. “It’s more of an aggressive position.” “Hitting is definitely my favourite part of football. Even getting hit, it hurts but it’s kind of fun. It wakes you up and gets you into the game.” On the GWG offence, Emerson is one of many weapons. Every year the team seems to be 17 deep in fast and physical running backs. Emerson leads a similarly deep group of pass catchers catching balls from rocket-armed quar terback Gabe Olivares. But the Grade 12 student says the best part of the Grizzly offence is the part that gets the least notice. “I think they’re the best offensive line in the province, in AA or AAA,” Emerson says of GWG’s dominant group of road pavers. “They’re all great players and

they’re all physical freaks.” “Then you’ve got Gabe behind them, and he delivers probably the best ball I’ve ever seen,” he continues. “He’s smart. He reads defences well and he’s a very good team leader.” Emerson hopes his teammates would also describe him as a leader. He tries to set a good example, bringing a lunch-bucket approach to the field. “I try to talk to everyone on the team, get along with them and encourage them,” he adds. “There’s a few guys I haven’t developed that relationship with yet, but that’ll come eventually.” Flip to the other side of the ball and Emerson’s defensive coordinator the last three years, Jason Campbell, talks about how well the teenager thinks the game. “Emerson has a high

football IQ, understands situational football, has a nose for the ball in pass situations and fearlessly attacks ball carriers in run situations,” Campbell says. “He could play safety, cornerback or outside linebacker for us.” “Hopefully a wide receiver I’m covering would say I’m physical, because I like to press a lot,” Emerson says when asked to selfscout. “Aggressive right off the line is how I like to play.” GWG’s defence, like the offence, is stacked with talent. Opponents may come into the season worrying about how to slow down the Grizzly O. By season’s end, Emerson thinks they’ll be pulling their hair out trying to figure out how to beat the D. “We’re going to have a very good offence but by the end of the season I think we’ll have an even better defence,”

he notes. “Everyone is a really high calibre player. A lot of our two-way guys like myself and Jordan (Breuker) lean towards the defensive side of the ball and I think we’ll be a little better at that.” Offseason rankings have put the Grizzlies at or near the top of the heap. Province writer Howard Tsumara revealed his Big Five this week, putting GWG third behind Nanaimo’s John Barsby Bulldogs and Chase Claypool’s Abbotsford Panthers. Emerson calls the Abbotsford rivalry special, says most of the guys on his team have been playing against their Fraser Valley foes since atom and will have an Oct. 30 road game circled on their schedule. “Having Abby ranked ahead of us helps to humble us and also puts a big chip on our shoulder,” he says. “But I

expect every team to be good and I don’t expect us to take any opponent for granted. We’ve done that before and lost to teams that weren’t that good.” Time’s flown by for Smith and many of his teammates. Seems yesterday they were precocious kids starting a brand new high school football program. Now, Emerson’s getting ready to graduate. “Aside from a few kids who are new, I’ve been playing with most of these guys since I was eight years old,” he says. “It’s a scary thought to be graduating from high school and I hope there’s another step after I’m done here.” While team goals are clearly championship or bust, Emerson has individual business to take care of this season. He looks to follow in the footsteps of Treyvon Walsh and Jake Creasey, moving

on to the post-secondary ranks. Several CIS schools should be interested, and Emerson has received nibbles from the NCAA. “I think the thing is to be patient and do it properly,” he says. “You want to be smart about it, weigh all your options and make sure the school you choose is right for you.” Coach Adam Smith believes Emerson will have many programs to choose from after he lights it up this fall. “After this season the biggest question for him will not be if he goes to university but where will they play him,” he says. “He could go as a DB or a reciever and have a great CIS career.” The Grizzlies launch into regular season action Oct. 9 when they visit Robert Bateman. GWG’s home opener is Oct. 16 versus Rick Hansen.

Greggain claims crown Jennifer Greggain has won her second PGA of BC Womens Golf Championship. The Chilliwack Golf Club instructor held off Vancouver’s Salimah Mussani to claim the crown on a rainy Tuesday morning. The two-round tourney was played at Richmond’s Mayfair Lakes Golf Club. Greggain battled through tough conditions to post an opening round 80 on Monday.

She came back with a 76 in round two, including birdies on the third and 11th holes. Mussani charged hard on the back nine with birdies on four of the last six holes. But she missed a chance to tie when she bogeyed 18, giving Greggain the title. Greggain also won this event in 2013. The other golfers in the small field of six were Ashley Zibrik, Leila Harman, Tara Roden and Danielle Poupart.

Muir Laura Marie

27 July, 1959 - 11 Sept. 2015 Place of birth: Vancouver, BC Laura Muir, 56, passed away on Friday, September 11, 2015 at 9:11pm. Her devotion to her family and firm belief in God support her during her fight with cancer. We were happily married in Abbotsford, BC in 1986, 29 years ago. My wife Laura grew up in the city of Vancouver and spent most of her life dedicated to caring for others and being a supportive, nurturing and loving mother, wife and best friend to me and our son Colin. She also played a special role as a loving step-mom and confidant to all of Colin’s friends. There was nothing more important in this world than her son and the care of others. She worked in the Abbotsford School district for more than 20 years as a Special Needs Assistant. Her last wish was told to Colin about giving the gift of sight to someone in need so we made that happen. She wanted us to extend a warm and heartfelt thank you to the Chilliwack Palliative Care staff, Chilliwack Home Health and above all the kind of staff at Cascade Hospice for their understanding and continuing out pour of love and support for the residents and their families on a daily basis. Laura was predeceased by her father John Drummond and her mother Darla Drummond. She is survived by her husband Shawn, her son Colin, cousin Janet and dear friends. At Laura’s request there will not be a service. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be sent in her name to either the Chilliwack Hospice Society w w w. t h e c h i l l i wa ck h o s pice.org/donate or The Eye Bank of BC www.eyebankofbc.ca/financial.html On line tributes and condolences may be offered at Henderson’s Funeral Home in care of arrangements, 604-792-1344 www.hendersonsfunerals.com

It is with profound sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of a much-loved man – husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. It was the simple things around him in life that Ernie never took for granted, commenting daily how fortunate and thankful he was. He married Elsie Braun in 1947, who died early in life from complications of Alzheimers’ Disease. Ernie married Esther Rosenau and they enjoyed 25 wonderful years together. Not only had he been blessed with two committed marriages, but two families, unified in the love of their parents. Ernie involved himself in the lives of others. He was well known and respected in the local community, whether in Medicine Hat, Calgary, Kelowna or, in more recent years, Chilliwack. His business endeavours included farming, mining, trucking, managing Royalite service and bulk stations, and later, sales with Gulf Oil. Ernie was a man of deep faith that translated into years of volunteer service at various levels in the Evangelical United Brethren Church. He donated an annual scholarship to an affiliate college, contributing for fifty years. He also dedicated countless hours to the Alzheimer Society of BC, Snowmobiling Club, community board and Fraser Valley Salmon Society. Much time was spent on the Fraser, fishing with Esther and numerous fishing buddies, with stories that rival most. His greatest pride was his family whom he prayed for daily. He believed in the power, grace and peace of Christ which he now delights in. Ernie will be remembered for his strength of spirit and joy of life. Ernie is survived by his wife Esther, children and grandchildren: Melvyn and Linda (Kailea), Carolyn and Barry (Scott and Shaina), Bentley and Pat (Trevor, Joel and Jeremy), Marlene and Marvin (Chiara, Mark and Alayne), and Esther’s children: Marvin (Albert), Terry and Laurie (Michael and Dan), Glenda and Don (Meghan and Kayla), Gerald and Maisa (Frida), thirteen great grandchildren, siblings (Frieda, Christine and Lila), in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and family.
