Trades program based in Hope unites Districts Erin Knutson Hope Standard An official ribbon cutting ceremony to announce the partnership between School District No. 73, Thompson River University (TRU) and School District No. 78 commenced at HSS this past Wednesday during its welding open house event. Attended by welding students (who gave live demonstrations,) local dignitaries MLA Laurie Throness, Mayor Wilfried Vicktor, SD No. 78 Trustee Ron Johnstone and SD No. 78 Superintendent Dr. Karen Nelson — the ceremony heard a host of speeches, as well wishes from speakers. “We believe programs such as the mobile welding unit and our partnership with Thompson Rivers University and School District No. 73 will provide every child, every chance, every day — we need to remember that what we spend our time on reflects what we believe is important,” said Nelson. The open house featured two massive welding trailers (which were open for tours,) currently being used by students right on HSS property. State of the art in quality, the trailers are estimated to be worth above $1.8 million,

and have given students of a variety of backgrounds and experience the distinct opportunity to utilize small class sizes and enjoy hands on experience through the Mobile Welding Program. The program which is currently being run by instructor Mike Grainger offers students the opportunity to get a taste of the trades at an early stage, with introductory programs for students in the midst of their high school careers. According to Grainger the program is open to everyone, even mature students returning from other fields, who want to try their hand at the trades. The demand for trades people has solidified the push for initiatives within the province and beyond to boost funding for the field, encouraging programs such as mobile welding, and are part of the changing scenery for interested students and prospective employers. Twelve students are presently enrolled in the program at HSS and are thrilled with the trailers, reporting to The Hope Standard that they have a lot of fun, and help each other out on a regular basis. “It’s good, because when we come out of this program — we know we’re going to get good jobs — it’s definitely given us a head start,” said Daymian Coleman, current student in the program.

“We are confident that this partnership will provide our students with the necessar y skills, abilities, and qualifications that will enable them to enter the workplace and look for ward to bright and promising futures,” says SD #78 Superintendent Dr. Karen Nelson, pointing out her district has enjoyed a very effec-

tive relationship with UFV over the years in providing dual credit university courses. John English, UFV’s Dean of Applied and Technical Studies, expects the new agreement will help students shift gears between educational experiences. “One of the best things we can do for students is to blur the lines between the K-12

system and post-secondary system to create opportunities for them to access technical career education as soon as their interests are there. This MOU begins to do just that,” he says. “We are looking for ward to working with Fraser-Cascade to make these opportunities real and to watch the vibrant and

enthused young minds start university technical programs while in high school.” SD #78 stretches from Boston Bar to Harrison Hot Springs. For more information on the district, visit www.sd78.bc.ca. For more information on UFV’s Faculty of Applied and Technical Studies, visit www.ufv. ca/trades.

there wouldn’t be many people opting out of the public system and the private options would fail. For those worried it would put the public system out of work, then that means the private options available are less costly and more efficient than the public. Which means better service for a better price. The people win. Seonaigh MacPherson - NDP Accessibility to healthcare is a source of tremendous frustration in Chilliwack and across B.C. We encounter problems with reasonable access to hospitals, family physicians and long-term care. Addressing our aging population will be a challenge for the next government. Far too often, Canadians who could be cared for in their homes can’t get the support they need and wind up in hospital emergency rooms and hallways. We can do so better. Working with the provinces, an NDP government will invest in 5,000 new nursing home beds and help provide home care for 41,000 seniors. On physician accessibility, Tom Mulcair and the NDP have committed to spending $500 million over four years to help provinces build new clinics and hire new doctors, nurse practitioners and other healthcare providers. Public healthcare is a core NDP value. Tom Mulcair will undo the damage Stephen Harper has done and improve access to healthcare in Chilliwack. Mark Strahl - Conservative Our Conservative government has funded our universal, public health care system to the highest levels in Canadian history, with record health and social transfers to the provinces reaching $40 billion by the end of the decade. This year, British Columbia will receive over $4.4 billion in health transfers from the federal government, nearly a $1.6 billion—or 59 per cent increase, since we took office. Under a re-elected Conservative government, health care transfers will continue to grow each and every year to help fund our public health care system. This stable, predictable, ever-increasing funding should enable the Government of British Columbia to fulfill its constitutionally mandated obligation to deliver timely, accessible health care services to British Columbians. As your MP, I will continue to respect provincial jurisdiction over the delivery of health care delivery and will continue to vote in favour of increased transfers to the provinces for health care.

Question to the public In light of observations such as these, how would you as MP ensure not just the affordability, but also the accessibility of health care to all residents of Chilliwack-Hope? What specifically can be done to address this difficult reality? Thomas Cheney - Green Our public health care system is Canada’s greatest achievement and a great source of pride for many Canadians, including myself. The Green Party will reverse the Conservative’s $36 billion cut to health care over 10 years and shift the focus towards prevention.  Preventative care includes addressing the social context behind poor health outcomes such as poverty and lifestyle through a school lunch program, a guaranteed liveable income and a clean environment. Even with the best prevention, people still need health care. The Green Party will introduce a federal Pharmacare system, saving Canadians billions of dollars as well as dental care for children. The Green Party alone opposes the Canada-EU trade agreement that will increase pharmaceutical costs by billions of dollars per year. Our public Medicare system can be made more accessible by focusing on prevention and reasonable funding, not by cutting it   Louis De Jaeger - Liberal With last year’s expiry of the Health Accord, Canadians are right to be concerned about the future of our health care. The Harper government failed to show leadership by allowing the Health Accord to expire and by extension created 14 different health care systems. Your access to affordable and timely health care now depends on which province in which you live and how much you can afford. The Harper government has refused to meet with the premiers, has reduced transfer payments for health care, and jeopardized all provinces’ ability to provide basic services to Canadians. The Conservatives have failed to set minimum standards, shared objectives and universal principles to address our health care issues. A Liberal government would make a new health care funding arrangement a priority. We would meet with all First Ministers and aboriginal leaders to modernize our health care system to deliver high quality, effective and efficient care that includes a drug plan to lower prescription costs for all Canadians.   Alexander Johnson - Libertarian By removing the Federal Canadian Health Act and allowing provinces to manage their own needs rather than forcing them into a position where they must conform to receive federal transfer payments, the people of each province would be able to set up a medical system that best suits them. Allowing a private option for health insurance would not only alleviate wait time but also cut costs of the public health care system. For those worried a private option would cost too much, then

The candidates each responded to questions provided by the Chamber of Commerce and The Hope Standard, with a two minute period to address concerns involving issues such as economic development, and affordable housing. Audience members had the opportunity to ask questions during the meeting, as the six candidates answered in earnest and in line with party policies — deflecting some heated points, including one man’s concern over sending Canadian troops into foreign conflicts.

in 2011, earning 57 per cent of their ballots. His win followed a threeterm run by his father, Chuck Strahl, also a Conservative. Strahl’s main argument while wrapping up his presentation at Thursday’s meeting, was that his roots in the community make him the candidate of choice. “I understand the people here — I know what they want.” Over the past four elections, the NDP have been the biggest threat to the long-standing Conservative seat. In 2011, the NDP took

a quarter of the votes, with then-candidate Gwen O'Mahoney. This time around, MacPherson has been campaigning since December, going door to door in both Chilliwack and Hope. "I’ve heard the calls for change grow louder," she said. “Families are working harder than ever, but they can’t get ahead. Many say we’re in another recession. Clearly, Stephen Harper’s plan isn’t working.” The Liberals also earn a fair share of the votes in this riding, with anywhere from eight to 16 per cent over the past four

elections. Liberal candidate De Jaeger has been campaigning aggressively, visiting local events and holding special fundraisers. A statement for Cheney, this election's candidate for the green party, reads in part: "The current administration's unwillingness to act on climate change is the main reason Thomas decided to run for the Greens in 2015. He thinks climate change is the defining issue of our time, and that confronting it will help solve many of the other challenges we face as a country and a global community.”

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

Staff snooping among patient privacy breaches Too many health authority employees inappropriately snoop in patient records and some deliberately disclose sensitive information via social media or cellphones. That's one of the most serious types of breaches flagged by B.C. Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham in a new report on how the province's health authorities safeguard privacy. The report cites "cases of snooping where staff members access records of VIP or other patients out of curiousity or for malicious intent." It uncovered four cases in 2013 of staff posting photos of patients to Facebook or Instagram, and three cases of doctors or nurses taking specific photos. Another nurse commented on a patient's health information directly on Facebook. "The (privacy commissioner's office) has serious concern regarding health authority staff deliberately disclosing the sensitive personal information of patients through their own mobile devices and on social media," the report said. The report doesn't break down the number or frequency of incidents between B.C.'s health regions. Denham's office has received 200 privacy breach complaints over 10 years from health authorities but suspects that's just one per cent of the actual number of incidents. Misdirected faxes were the single most common type of privacy breach identified. Lost or stolen records or mobile devices were most common among home health and community care programs. Half of health authorities reported problems with home care workers leaving patient records unsecured in their cars against policy. Fraser Health told Denham's office its privacy officers notify affected individuals in almost every privacy breach, in addition to the health region's CEO. There is no legal requirement for disclosure in B.C. Data held by health authorities includes personal identifiers, financial information, health conditions, test results, medication used, as well as information on patients' physical, mental and emotional status, as well as lifestyle and behaviour. Denham issued 13 recommendations for action to reduce the risk of future privacy breaches and with lives and reputations on the line, it’s taking into consideration. Black Press

A brief history of health spending BC Views

The federal budget document began with an ominous warning about deep cuts. Social programs, justice and corrections would be spared as much as possible, but no department would escape the knife. The stark truth was revealed in a table of figures. Health care spending, the core of the Canadian state, was cut by 3.8 per cent in just the first year of the fiscal Tom plan, as population and need continued to grow. Fletcher No, this is not from the Stephen Harper budget of April 2015, or any other in the last decade. It’s from the Jean Chretien budget of 1995, more than 20 years ago. That’s the last time anyone actually cut health care spending. But wait, you may say. Didn’t I hear that Harper has slashed health care spending by $30 billion? Yes, you probably did hear the biggest, most brazen lie of this election campaign, either from the government unions that advertised it or the politicians who parrot it. If health care really is everyone’s high-priority issue, as pollsters have long assured us, voters should at least know the facts.

Box 1090 Hope, B.C. VOX 1LO

After cutting provincial health and social services transfers for years to end the string of operating deficits that began under Pierre Trudeau and continued under Brian Mulroney, Liberal finance minister Paul Martin rose briefly to the top job. In 2004, Martin staged meetings with premiers, emerging with what was billed as “a fix for a generation,” with federal health transfers to rise six per cent each year into the future. The future for Martin’s government lasted only two years, as his minority was replaced with one led by Harper. These galloping increases continued until the Conservative majority of 2011, after which then-finance minister Jim Flaherty came to Victoria to inform provincial finance ministers of the new plan. (I was there, and the joke was that this was as far from Ottawa as Flaherty could get without leaving Canada.) The six-per-cent increases, by that time triple inflation, would continue for another five years. Starting in 2017-18, increases would be tied to economic growth, with a minimum hike of three per cent, still well ahead of today’s inflation. That remains the Conservative plan today. All provinces east of Saskatchewan pitched a fit. Manitoba’s NDP finance minister termed it “un-Canadian.” Lefties immediately called it a cut, to which Flaherty replied that transfers to provinces would rise from $30 billion to $38 billion in

Standard

2018-19, and continue to grow after that. In B.C., then-finance minister Kevin Falcon praised the long-term approach, acknowledging that health spending was ballooning to half of the provincial budget and had to be brought under control as baby boomers start to retire. B.C. has largely accomplished that, with spending increases below three per cent and health care outcomes that continue to lead the country. As the current election campaign turns into the home stretch, Statistics Canada has announced a milestone. For the first time in history, the number of seniors exceeds number of children. This demographic shift is inexorable, predictable and must be addressed by whoever wins the Oct. 19 federal election. NDP leader Thomas Mulcair is on record that he will scrap the Conservative formula for growth-based increases that he pretends are cuts, returning to six per cent every year while balancing the budget. Little detail has been provided on how this would be done. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau announced in Surrey last week that he will ante up an extra $3 billion over four years for health care, and “sit down with the provinces immediately” to renegotiate, a rerun of Paul Martin’s political theatre.

Letters Re: Robin Hood approach Lets be fair, if you’re going to post something negative about one party leader, Justin Trudeau, I am sure you have received other letters criticizing Mr. Harper or Mr. Mulcair —where are those letters? Personally I do not have a problem spending 10 billion a year for infrastructure within Canada instead of the billions already spent keeping our forces in Syria or Afghanistan on the training mission there, not to mention how much 10 years in Afghanistan cost us. There have been more lives lost, due to suicide then in battle. Our brave men and woman

are suffering and not getting the resources they need to heal. Mr. Harper will not even sit down with the Provincial Premiers at the annual conference. All Mr. Harper cares about is regaining his seat at the United Nations. Mr. Harper has reduced corporate taxes from 20 to 15 per cent and unemployment is at a record high. If I remember correctly he said it would encourage industry to hire more, I guess he was wrong, again. Print this or not, just be fair and print opposing opinions. Lorne Fortune

Re: The democratic process Ms. Sue Martin is concerned about the low voter turn-out in our federal and provincial elections, asserting that voters don’t realize how important their vote is and what a privilege it is to be able to vote. I agree with her. Ms. Martin suggests that the voters learn all about the individual candidates, the party policies and their promises; however, we know from past experience that what they promise or talk about before the election may be totally different from what they do afterwards — so much for integrity and honesty. They all claim to provide fiscal responsibility, open and

honest government and new programs everybody knows we can’t afford without increasing taxes and/or the national debt. How can the voters make an informed choice? It seems to me that the voters are not the problem. They have every reason to be apathetic and cynical. Electing an MP should mean the voters have a voice in Ottawa, rather than someone parroting the party line at home. Until that changes many voters will not dignify the process by participating. It is the unprincipled politicians and party politics that are destroying the democratic process. Hartmut Schmid

We live in the safest time period in history  This is not what we hear from many of our leaders, but actually it's a fact. Statistics bear that out. Even "terrorism" is less of a risk today. You've likely heard about all the exotic ways of dying, you are more likely to experience (cows, bathtubs, lightning.)  So why all the fear-mongering? Is this in keeping with the values of our Chilliwack and Hope communities? The pursuit of peace has long been a Canadian hallmark, shaping our international reputation. Consistently in state-of-the-nation polls, Canadians say that the country's international reputation as peacekeeper is held dear.

OCD a reality In an average elementary school, there are likely five children suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD.) In a medium to large high school, there are typically 20 students battling OCD. In a workplace of 500, there would be about five employees who have OCD, most likely hiding their symptoms from their colleagues. OCD is in our community and residents of (CITY/TOWN) should not feel ashamed or embarrassed. In most cases, OCD is a treatable disorder. However, studies show that people suffer unnecessarily for years because of lack of information and a shortage of therapists trained to properly diagnose and treat OCD. This is an opportunity for your readers to educate themselves about OCD and its treatment during the International OCD Foundation?s OCD Awareness Week, October 11 through 17, 2015. The IOCDF helps people find treatment that will curtail suffering and allow them to lead more productive lives. It also funds research and provides support for OCD sufferers and the families and caregivers of OCD patients. A variety of IOCDF resources can be found online at www.iocdf.org Lea Bianchin

And we're rightfully known for our measured and considered thinking; our hearts beat with both humility and pride (because that's the Canadian way eh?).  This is an important time of decision. Let's not allow our thoughts and our discussions to be drowned out by political dogma edged with racism and hate. And fear mongering. Let's come together, not be divided.  Let's KEEP CALM, and campaign on.   Wayne Froese

BC Hydro recently finished one of the most gruelling and prestigious jobs in its history with the completion of the Interior-to-Lower Mainland transmission line. The new line which spans from Merritt to Coquitlam was built to act as a key link in BC Hydro’s transmission system. The impressive and gargantuan new line was designed to bring electricity from its point of origin, in places like the North (Peace region) and southeast (Columbia region,) all the way to high demand areas in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. According to BC Hydro media liaison Simi Heer, the line will help meet the increased need for electricity in difficult winter months when the demand for electricity is at its peak. The crew was hand picked, based on a skill-set unique to the arduous and highly specialized training needed to complete the job. “We demanded a lot of our guys — for long periods of time,� said Operations Manager Devin Dukeshire. Reaching 247-kilometres the larger-than-life line utilizes over 600 steel transmission towers. The ambitious project began in 2012 and wrapped up at the beginning of July 2015. BC Hydro employees were a regular fixture around Hope over the past year, as crew members forged on through the changing of seasons, often coping with long hours and difficult conditions to complete the 500 kilovolt line, which will be an integral part of BC Hydro’s existing bulk transmission system. “This type of line hasn’t been built since the mid-1970’s,� said Heer. The majority of the transmission was constructed by Flatiron Graham Joint Venture, with BC Hydro in charge of the 19 kilometre portion of the line in the Spuzzum area close to Hope. Forty-eight towers were used to complete the line (a stretch that was one of the most challenging parts in its entirety) — five crossings, two railways, a major highway and an existing transmission, gave plenty for managers and crew to deal with during its historic completion.

Sixty-five people braved the Fraser River together during the Hope Mountain Centre’s World Rivers Day paddle event on Sunday, September 27, which has been running since 2006. With support funding from Envision Credit Union (Hope Branch,) river expertise from Fraser River Raft Expeditions, and equipment support from Camp Squeah the event was an exceptional success. People from the Lower Mainland, Okanagan and Hope came together to enjoy the water in a seven hour journey, which saw 34 canoes and kayaks, and three motorized boats for river rescue in case of capsizing.

Garbage dumping plagues non-profits in Hope Garbage dumping is rapidly becoming a problem in the District of Hope. Several non-profit organizations within the community have experienced an onslaught of unwanted goods that are being dumped on their doorsteps — unusable items have to be extricated to the Sunshine Valley Transfer Station at a costly fee. Northwest Harvest Church is among the charitable groups that are dealing with the excess of clothing, toys and appliances, currently being abandoned on their property. “Our sign says food and clothes only — we have evidence of who’s been dropping it,” said Bruce McDonald at Northwest Harvest. “It’s loads and loads of broken and dirty stuff that we have to get rid of – we spent $200 to drop it at the transfer station, and that’s money that infringes on feeding the poor.” Hoarding is a probable cause of the dumping according to McDonald. “A hoarder believes something has value, even if it’s garbage — the individual may be well-intentioned when they drop off the items, but we can’t process it, and that sets us back — we can feed a lot of people for $200,” he said. McDonald is not alone in his struggle.

Hope Community Services’ Hidden Treasures Thrift Store is also experiencing high volumes of mass dumping at the front and back areas of their store on Wallace Street. “The back alley will often have broken glass, mugs, and we have to clean it up before we even get started — we are tired of dealing with it,” said Thrift Store Manager Dianne MacDonnell. “A witness from CIBC saw people throwing broken plates in the parking lot like frisbees — they would bounce off the curb and one almost smashed the window.” MacDonnell, urges those responsible to stop this type of behaviour — a grievance shared by many as an increase of trash has been noted piling up in and around Hope. She speculates that high fees at the transfer station may be a contributing factor to the problem. “It’s wrong — we have signs saying no donations in the front and back, and we ask people to access the store during regular business hours, when they want to drop off goods,” she said. MacDonnell cautions perpetrators that identification is not a problem (with identifying receipts, often being left behind in the chaos) and warns future contributors that her organization has refrained from bringing the police into the

situation for now. “Dirty clothes and TV’s are being dumped — please be respectful of what we’re trying to do in the community for those who are less fortunate, even those who might be well-meaning, should be mindful of what they leave at the store,” she said. During business hours, the store will put items out according to MacDonnell — children’s toys and things like that, but those goods shouldn’t be mistaken for donations and are meant for the taking. “It’s disheartening and upsetting — nobody should be in tears at their job,” said MacDonnell. “ We are 100 per cent non-profit, and we have a lot of volunteers. Some days

BC Hydro reduction rate for the poor Legal advocacy group, the BC Public Interest Advocacy Centre (BCPIAC) will ask the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) to implement an electricity affordability program for BC Hydro’s 160,000 low income residential customers. The proposal consists of three strategies to address the hardship caused by high hydro rates on low income customers: lifeline rates to keep rates more affordable for the poorest customers; low income customer service rules including more flexible arrears payment arrangements and waiver of reconnection fees; and emergency bill assistance to avoid disconnection. BC Hydro has increased residential electricity rates by 47 per cent in the last 10 years, and is on track to increase them by at least 10.5 per cent in the next three years. Rates are projected to continue to rise significantly in future years as BC Hydro proceeds with multi-billion dollar projects such as Site C dam which have been exempted from a full public review by the BCUC. BC Hydro’s rate increases have grossly outstripped increases in income for low income British Columbians. For example, B.C. social assistance rates have been frozen since 2007 at $610 per month for basic assistance and $906 for disability assistance, and in the last 10 years the B.C. general minimum wage has only gone up by $2.45 an hour. “Electricity is an essential service, and low income BC Hydro customers have no spare money to pay higher electricity costs. Since electricity is essential to survival, people can only pay their electricity bills at the expense of competing household necessities, such as food and medicine” said Trish Garner, community organizer with the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition. “About 10 per cent of BC Hydro residential customers live below Statistics Canada’s Low Income Cut-off”, said Sarah Khan, one of the lawyers at BCPIAC who is bringing this issue to the BCUC, adding that “Continuous rate increases and stagnant incomes are causing low income people to struggle to pay for their BC Hydro bills.” BC Hydro offers no rates or terms and conditions that specifically apply to low income customers. The only programs available to these customers are energy saving kits and in more limited cases, energy efficiency home upgrades. While these programs are important, they are not offsetting BC Hydro’s rate increases. BC Hydro has just filed a Rate Design Application with the BCUC, and BCPIAC will intervene in this proceeding on behalf of the following groups to request low income programs: Active Support Against Poverty, BC Old Age Pensioners’ Organization, BC Poverty Reduction Coalition, Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of BC, Disability Alliance BC, Together Against Poverty Society, and Tenant Resource & Advisory Centre.

ewspapers have morphed into multi-platform mega houses that continue to be relevant. The focus of journalism on the delivery of authentic content has never been more exciting with the advent of the digital era. The digital era has transformed the industry, allowing easier access to content from multiple platforms; whether, it be on a tablet or a printed copy of the medium. The use of multi-dimensional platforms has increased the strength of the brand of newspapers in recent years and it will continue to forge a path for itself with new technological advances, especially in mobile technology.The entire nature of the medium has changed and become a dynamic force since the arrival of new media. The integration of print and an online presence for breaking news, has enhanced the position of newspapers as they have greater ease to facilitate the flow of content, and at a 24/7 pace if so desired.Newspapers

www.hopestandard.com still have the ability to influence behavior in consumers, who are absorbed into a stimulating platform that showcases advertisers. Newspapers have the ability to create emotional connections between products, services and brands, while delivering the message of a campaign, conveying messages, stirring up reactions and encouraging debate among the public. Digital technology has allowed the streaming of content, and video capacity on a level that has never seen before — the challenge is quality, but traditional content is backed up increasingly by visual and multi-media mediums, offering audiences titillating formats to absorb content. Arguably television is a top competitor, but newspapers still have an edge, as newspapers have the ability to provide continual updates throughout the day, while television is known to hang onto stories until scheduled bulletins.

The company’s primary concern is the protection of the community and their motto is to look out for the best interests of residents, while properly securing customer property. All patrol members are licensed by the Ministry of Public Safety and trained by the Justice

Arts & Entertainment Ruby Creek Art Gallery hosts second annual Native Art Gala The Ruby Creek Art Gallery, owned and operated by the Sq'ewá:lxw First Nation, is pleased to announce that the second annual gallery open house event and Native Art Gala will be held on Friday, October 16, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Gallery wishes to invite all neighbours to join them for an evening of fine art, live music, cultural sharing, hors d'oeuvres and wine. The Ruby Creek Art Gallery does a phenomenal job of displaying beautiful Native art pieces, such as cedar and soapstone carvings, silver and gold jewelry, framed prints, original paintings, and drums.

“We believe that art appreciation should go beyond the visual aspect of just ‘seeing’ the art pieces. We also want our visitors to feel the beat of the drums and to hear the voices of the artists — we want them to smell the cedar as it is being carved, and through story, get a glimpse into the mind of the carver as a piece of cedar is brought to life — we believe that our open house event will give visitors that holistic experience and a better understanding of the art pieces on display,” said Gallery Manager, Mike Bellegarde. Some of the planned highlights of the evening include: Cultural sharing of song and dance by Blake Shaá’koon Lepine (Tlingit,) musical storytelling by Shane Bellegarde (Cree,) and appetizers and

Halloween has become a cash cow young girls. My daughter was 11 last year and had her heart set on dressing up as Alice in Wonderland or Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, but the only ensembles we were able to find last minute were slinky numbers you might see on a young lady at a nightclub. Criticism over those types of garments are expressed on social media every year, as is the calling out of people not being politically correct - like the school principal who dressed up like Mr. T or the actress who dressed up as the character Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black. They both sparked heated debates over social media, but when our friend dressed up like

Aunt Jemima 30 years ago, no one blinked an eye. She had also applied dark make-up over her light skin, but no one said anything beyond how fantastic she looked. Was society less sensitive to the suffering of minorities back then? Were we less politically correct? That topic deserves a column of it’s own. Dissension aside, escaping reality and transforming into something else can be extremely amusing, and that’s probably why the popularity of it among adults has grown tremendously. Another reason to like the “holiday” is that it’s relatively low pressure and revolves around having lighthearted fun while socializing.

Halloween has changed a lot since I was a kid. For one thing, it’s become big business. Canadians and Americans spent approximately eight billion dollars on candy, decorations and costumes last year. And not just costumes for children, but for grown ups, dogs and even some unimpressed cats. Back in my day our parents bought candy to hand out, and pumpkins to carve - that was about it. My little brother and I happily assembled our getups by rummaging around the house for items we already owned, and although we’d seen the plastic Fonzie and Planet of the Apes masks at the supermarket, it never dawned on us to ask for them. On Halloween night we took our pillow cases and went door to door in our neighbourhoods, often in the bitter cold and rain, never imagining the concept of going D+ AINLAN M store to store inside a dry, 5 1 0 2 + warm mall.  We also never envisioned an entire shop devoted to costumes. They did exist, but I certainly never set foot in any as a child. If I had, I wouldn’t have wanted to leave. These days, as soon as September rolls around there are pop up Halloween stores all over, with a vast array of costumes and decorations. This unfortunately takes away sales from costume shops that remain open all year and enrich our communities in ways a seasonal retail chain can’t, but INCLUDES: CHIEFS HOME GAMES & that’s not their only competition.

Andrew the Crazy Canuck aspires to help local kids

A couple of new residents have arrived in Hope — Andrew the Crazy Canuck (also known as Andrew Nicholson) and his partner Melissa recently moved to town and are looking to shake things up in a fun and interactive way, while bringing an exciting new element to the community. The Vancouver Canucks mascot is better known for his outlandish alter-ego as Andrew the Crazy Canuck — a longtime fixture at hockey games and appearances in his hometown of Vancouver. Nicholson’s larger than life character was developed after experiencing a chal-

lenging childhood in foster homes, with the passing of his mom at age five. These experiences inspired him to want to help kids deal with real life problems through his interactive appearances as Andrew the Crazy Canuck. The die hard Canuck fan aims to use his act to educate the public and to bring awareness about kids with autism, while addressing issues like anti-bullying through different events within the community. Also a choreographer and dance instructor, Nicholson once taught East Coast Swing and ballroom dancing at UBC and is interested in bringing

dance programs like hiphop to the kids of Hope. “I created a character that is goofy, approachable, and allows kids to laugh while giving them a platform to address problems at home — I want to be someone the kids can trust and be able to talk to.” he said. Nicholson is always willing to sign an autograph — kids and parents alike, idolize the charismatic mascot, and even the saying of “God bless the Crazy Canuck” has reverberated off arena walls. “It’s an overwhelming feeling — when I come into a room people react and it keeps me going,” he said. “I’ve spent the past six years paying attention to the kids — kid’s are not judgmental — they have fun, and it’s nice to get on their level.” The self-professed big kid is all about leadership, and already has ideas of what his crazy character can bring to Hope, including the possibility of a Crazy Canuck car for the 2016 Brigade Days Demolition Derby. “I’m going to educate and inspire in a way that suits the flow of the community.”

The Hope Curling Club opens the rink to newcomers Hope Standard

ERIN KNUTSON / THE STANDARD

Curlers of all stages enjoyed the rink at the Hope Curling Club during Saturday’s open house Fun night.

The Hope Curling club is in the midst of starting its new 2015/2016 season and is looking for recruits. The favourite Canadian sport is not just about throwing rocks and sweeping according to curling buffs. An evening on the ice, solidified the idea that the traditional sport had more to offer than one might imagine, when the Club opened its doors to The Hope Standard on Saturday during its open house Fun Night for old and new curlers. At first, the ice was intimidating, but with a little patience and careful instruction from longtime curler Roman Petryk, I was able to overcome my fear of falling flat on my face. Soon my awkward glide over the ice became a little more fluid, and I began to notice something — the fear was replaced by determination, and yes, I was having fun. The more I practiced the more I wanted to perfect my technique, as I noticed the agile and confident curlers around me. Another thing was appar-

ent, the sport is addictive, and I found myself wanting more — the Norwegian side of me, lit up at a chance to glide on a glassy surface and to spend time on a harder form of snow, reminiscent of skiing days of old. A keen mental sport that encourages the use of mind and body coordination, is also about having a good time. “It has to be about fun and meeting new people — curling is a sport that can carry you into any community in Canada and your fellow curlers will welcome you into their rink to enjoy the fellowship of curling,” said avid curler and youth program coordinator Carrie Martindale. The Club is also starting a junior curling league and is looking for young people from ages 11 to 18, who want to learn the sport and enjoy a fun opportunity. They are encouraged to come out Friday’s after school from 3:35 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. to learn Canada’s greatest sport. For more information on the sport and practice schedules contact Roman at 604-869-9344 or Ken at 604-869-7281.
