A woman offers prayers and gifts as she visits the memorial site of local boy Jorin Clay Dann-Mills, who died tragically, after being struck by a commercial vehicle last Wednesday. An outpouring of support from the community has been staggering since the tragedy, as visitors placed toys, flowers and a sign that reads “all children go to heaven”at the 6th Avenue location.

Jorin Clay Dann-Mills life was cut tragically short Erin Knutson Hope Standard A memorial has been erected in honour of the tragic passing of Jorin Clay Dann-Mills last week. Toys, gifts, flowers and prayers have been ongoing, since the tragedy occurred and as the mourning community of Hope, offers their respects to the boy and his family. The community was shocked when Mills, aged 8, was hit by a commercial truck on 6th Avenue early last Wednesday afternoon. BC ambulance promptly arrived on scene accompanied by General Duty officers, where Mills was found to be suffering from a series of life threatening injuries. Mills was expediently transported to Fraser Canyon Hospital where he succumbed to trauma. “No family should have to deal with something like this — I can only imagine the type of hell they are going through right now,” Staff Sergeant Karol Rehdner told The Hope Standard on scene. “We are still investigating and have no further information at this time.”

Got a great business idea? We’re here to help!

According to police reports the driver is working with authorities during the ongoing investigation. A candlelight vigil late Wednesday evening was the result of an outpouring of community support to honour Mills and his parents Sharon Dann and Dan Mills — over one hundred people attended the rally, demonstrating the spirit of Hope in a crisis such as this one. Shasta Beeckman a family member, who arranged the rally outside of Mills’ home, started a GoFundMe page, where people are currently being directed to raise funds for Mills’ parents. “It’s devastating for the family and the community — no one should have to lose a child,” said Mayor Wilfried Vicktor. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.” Mills will be missed by all who knew him and is survived by three siblings who include older sister Kayla, brother Brayden and his little sister Rosie. The family has requested that instead of flowers, a donation be made to Vancouver Children’s Hospital on behalf of Mills. A celebration of life is scheduled to take place for Mills at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 17 at the Hope Golf Club.

Black Press Topics ranged from missing aboriginal women to help for veterans, and disabled programs to infrastructure. A question from the audience regarding road repair for Lillooet, led to a brief debate on infrastructure: Liberal candidate Jati Sidhu said his party will spend $125 billion on infrastructure, and the party is “committed to build new roads, build new bridges and build new schools.” Conservative candidate Brad Vis said the Conservatives have invested $3.5 billion in infrastructure funding in B.C. “We’ve made record investments in this program and all of you see that day to day.” He cited the Port Mann Bridge, Alex Fraser Bridge and KEVIN MILLS/BLACK PRESS improvements to the Sea to Sky Highway and the Mission Bridge Liberal candidate Jati Sidhu speaks to a crowd of about 400 people as as examples.

A young girl named Cadence stepped up to the microphone last Wednesday, facing the full panel of six federal election candidates. She had waited a half hour to reach the microphone, and it will be years before she will be old enough to mark a ballot. Neither of these things stopped her from addressing what she sees as the biggest problem in Chilliwack — homelessness.  As was the rule with everyone stepping up to the microphone at the All Candidates Debate at the FILE PHOTO/BLACK PRESS Chilliwack Cultural Centre, she had to address just one candidate.

Local PACs get support from provincial grant program The provincial government has provided $29,560 to local Parent Advisory Councils (PACs) and the District Parent Advisory Committee (DPAC) in the Fraser-Cascades School District to help support student activities outside of the classroom. The funds will be used to enhance the student experience through extracurricular activities. These grants cover various costs, including sporting equipment, musical instruments, playground equipment and field trips. “Parent Advisory Councils are made up of

   

   

   

dedicated individuals that contribute to the education experience,� Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness said. “The gaming grant funds supports students and ensures they have access to extra-curricular activities.�  The parent-run councils help ensure B.C.’s children have access to activities that ensure the development of a well-rounded educational background. Overall, nearly $11.1 million has been delivered to over 1,400 PACs and DPACs throughout British Columbia for the 2015-16 school year. The funding is through the provincial

government’s community gaming grant programs. Local PACs receive $20 per student, while DPACs receive a flat rate of $2,500. The grant funds must remain under the management and control of those that receive them. Funds cannot be used for, or transferred to, curricular purposes or to schools or school districts or their activities or programs. The provincial government distributes $135 million annually in community gaming grants to benefit over 5,000 local organizations representing virtually every community in the province.

What Canada means to me: A pre-election essay The luscious green grass, raging rivers, the calm gentle breeze, sparkling oceans, mighty mountains and tall trees. Canada is more than a country, it’s a home. It’s a home to you and me and all the animals that roam. It’s the place I’ve grown up in, and the place I’ll stay till I’m old and gone. I’ve met my best friend here, celebrated 12 birthdays here, and took my first steps. Here in Canada, you can have the opportunity to do anything! Swim, run, dance, learn, laugh and just be you. Canada has a lot to be proud of – like the Canadian Flag, Flanders Fields, Terry Fox, eagles, beavers, hockey, the landscape, cultures, National Anthem, freedom and all Canadians. More than ten million square miles of land surrounded by three oceans, Canada has a population of a mere thirty-two million people. It is a safe place, where laughter and excitement fill the air. Who would want to live anywhere else? When I think about Canada, I think about today, the past and my future. My past has been an amazing 12 years with making new friends, trying new things and discovering the world around me. Today I am having an awesome time expressing my feelings about Canada and how it makes me – me! It makes me feel confident and safe and that builds personality and dreams. For the future, I am preparing for the twists and turns, good times and bad, and anything that comes my way. I am planning on doing something to give back to Canada. The more I think about it the more I come to have great respect for my country. Canada is fair, kind and offers support to every person. It is affordable and has great education programs. I mean in some countries girls are not even allowed to go to school or show any of their face except for their eyes. I think I have an amazing life with funny good-hearted friends, loving family and safe environment. I know I still have a long time to decide what I want to be but I know it must be something that will contribute. There are many people that make Canada a proud country and I would like to be one of them. A doctor, nurse, firefighter, police officer, mother, Olympian, teacher, farmer, Military and so much more. They are who Canada is. All I know is Canada is my heart and home and always will be. I am proud to be called Canadian. Lauren Lowe, age 12 Black Press

Seeing the forest and the trees BC Views

There was a flurry of excitement in the B.C. legislature last week, as Delta South independent MLA Vicki Huntington released documents suggesting that a multinational manufacturing company continued to buy up B.C. farms for Tom carbon offsets after they Fletcher said last June they would stop. False alarm, as it turns out. Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick clarified that three more farms in the Peace and Cariboo region had indeed been bought, but the company was merely following legal advice to close deals on farms that it had already agreed to purchase. The company, British-based cleaning product and pharmaceutical maker Reckitt Benckiser (RB) confirmed this. A company official reiterated that its program to buy farms and replant them with trees is suspended. By the time the B.C. government became

aware of this global public relations scheme, thanks to the work of NDP MLA Lana Popham and others, about 10,000 hectares of farmland was already planted with seedlings. RB initially said they were buying up abandoned and unproductive farms, but local government officials disputed that. RB soon realized that undermining already precarious farming communities was going to provide the opposite of the green publicity they sought, at least in B.C. The company told me it is now looking to switch its carbon offset program to replanting forest areas depleted by pine beetle and fire. I’ll believe that when I see it, but on the face of it, this sounds almost as questionable as converting farmland back to forests. Pine forests need fire to regenerate, so fires have been part of the regeneration of the ecosystem since the retreat of the last Ice Age. Beetle-kill areas are already coming back, and they were never completely denuded in any case, so the notion of manual planting these areas seems impractical. Most are now criss-crossed with deadfall and all but

impassible. Another situation that received little public attention was a report issued late this summer by the B.C. Forest Practices Board about forest stewardship plans. The board reviewed 43 stewardship plans from all regions of B.C., prepared as required under provincial law by forest tenure holders on Crown land. They are ideally supposed to deal with things like where roads go and how streams are protected. This is the management system put in place in 2003, when the B.C. Liberal government changed its approach to forest management. Gone was the NDP’s infamous seven-volume “Forest Practices Code,” which attempted to micromanage every detail of a timber licence, right down to inspecting for litter left at a logging site. In came “results-based” forest management, where licence holders had to produce a plan showing stream protection and other values. The Forest Practices Board has found these plans often aren’t good for much, although results are generally good when they follow

up with on-the-ground audits of actual timber harvest areas. The investigation found that many of the plans cover “vast and overlapping areas of the province, and were written using legal language that makes them very difficult for public understanding or review.” Little has changed since a similar finding in 2006. During that time, the forests ministry was turned into Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, with greatly increased responsibility over wildlife, mining, gas drilling and so on. Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald, who traveled the province as NDP forests critic in recent years, says the problem now is there just aren’t enough people on the ground to assess what’s going on in our huge expanse of Crown land. Meanwhile the city media covers professional protesters issuing demands about the Walbran Valley. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Letters “Let’s wait and see” not a suggested tactic for democracy “Let’s wait and see,” said townspeople in Ursula Hegi’s magnificent novel, Stones from the River, about a fictitious German town before and during World War II. Many townspeople saw some immediate benefits of the Nazi regime, and preferred not to look, as civil rights were gradually taken from them. “They didn’t know that they were giving their power away, and they didn’t know that by the time the Nazi regime would become bloated and monstrous with that power, it would be too dangerous for the people to reclaim that power,” writes Hegi. In Canada, we still live in a democracy; together we do have power in this election. So please consider this list of actions by our current Conservative government. They are not Nazis, but these Conservative actions are alarmingly against democracy, and against civil rights. 1. The Conservatives, supported by the Liberals, passed Bill C-51, the Anti-Terrorism Act. C-51 gives government power to call a very wide range of activities a security threat. A threat to physical safety is one thing, but C-51 says threats to economic and financial security can be terrorism! Even peaceful protests can be called a security threat. The government can now easily find ways to charge people it doesn’t agree with. C-51 seriously violates our privacy. All government offices can now share information with any other government offices. For example, Health Canada and Revenue Canada can share your information with the RCMP. CSIS is Canada’s spy agency and not accountable to parliament. Before, CSIS could only collect information. C-51 lets CSIS arrest and question people, in secret. They didn’t justify that C-51 is needed. Terrorism crimes are already included in the criminal code! 2. The Conservatives’ new voter ID rules make it more difficult to vote for tens of thousands of Canadians. Aboriginal people, students, seniors in care homes and homeless

people are especially unlikely to be able to vote when they get to the polls. We don’t need these rules — voter fraud is not a problem in Canada. 3. The Conservatives dismissed over 2000 government scientists in the last five years. Conservatives cut or eliminated hundreds of programs that monitored things like smokestack emissions, food inspections, oil spills, water quality, and climate change. 4. In 2012, this government began cutting $115 million from CBC, our precious public broadcasting station. Other stations’ first priority is to make money, but CBC by law must serve Canadians. With further cuts this year, there is risk we could lose CBC. 5. In 2012, the Conservative government used a 443 page budget bill to reduce the public’s ability to take part in environment decisions, weaken rules for projects like pipelines, eliminate protection of fish habitat, weaken the Canada Labour Code and change many other laws and policies. 6. Using the budget bill that way kept Parliament from asking questions and debating all those changes. 7. The Federal Conservatives passed Bill S-6, which gives the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs in Ottawa power to direct the Yukon’s environmental assessment process. Bill S-6 also means changes to existing projects won’t get assessed. But the rules for Yukon environmental assessment are part of the Umbrella Final Agreement signed by Yukon First Nations, Yukon and Canada. 8. Canada’s census information is now much less useful for making laws that are based on facts, because the Conservatives made the Census Long Form optional. Let’s NOT wait and see where these Conservative actions might be headed. Laws can be repealed, cut funding can be restored. Let’s think and vote! Mary Amerongen

Moral crisis a real problem I submit that the real moral crisis in the world today is the mental apathy (aka "indifference") and spinelessness of millions of citizens who wallow in it. Mentally lazy and spineless people get conned, used and exploited, all while supporting and even being so ill-advised as to thank those who con, use and exploit them.     On the other hand, who can harshly blame those of them who are pre-occupied with using all their energy and meager resources to barely stay alive. Excluding some First Nations communities  and inner city areas where grass roots people are barely staying alive, this is not as big an issue in North America and Europe as it is in other places of the world.  We have tables of plenty, especially here in Canada. The greedy, wealthy, clever, selfish and influential dine on the very best at it. The poor and discouraged wait aside, scrambling and even begging for the left overs and

crumbs dropped or even thrown to them from the tables. It appears the current Catholic Pope, who was recently in the USA addressed this moral crisis.   Ignoring him - while putting on the façade that they were not ignoring him – remain the greedy, wealthy, clever, selfish and influential.     Equally as disturbing are those recipients of crumbs thrown their way; those who have sold their souls in order to become comfortable based on the crumbs – even in relatively small ways – or who badly want to be so (aka “immoral wannabees.”) They cuddle up to and mimic their crumbdropping masters while mentally and physically remain indifferent by distancing themselves from the poor.  Is the term social-economic climbers or yuppies or even hypocrites too kind to describe them?   Dr. Dennis Hall

Do Harper’s Conservatives Help Seniors? By 2030, seniors will number more than 9 million and make up about 25 per cent of the population. • March 31, 2015 marked the one-year anniversary of the death of the National Health Accord. • The Harper government is eliminating the equalization portion of the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) and replacing it with an equal per capita transfer. It is estimated that this will create a funding gap for the have-not provinces of $16.5 billion over the next 5 years. The only province to benefit from this change is Alberta.

• Canada remains one of the few G7 nations that do not have a national dementia strategy. • The Conservatives have decided that people should not retire at 65, so they are moving the age of eligibility for Old Age Security (OAS) and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) to 67.

• The share of federal transfers in health spending is set to fall from the current level of 20% to below 12%.

• They have increased the discount on the Canada Pension Plan if you take it before 65, as a means to keep people working longer.

• Government estimates show that nearly 250,000 Canadian seniors will lose their poverty-preventing  GIS each year by 2030.

• You used to have to be in Canada 10 years to be eligible for OAS. In the last budget bill, they changed this to 20 years.

The Liberal Plan to Help Seniors A Liberal government is committed to an immediate $3 billion investment, over the next four years, in home care. We will also reduce the costs of prescription medication and increase availability of mental health services. We will also help lift hundreds of thousands of seniors out of poverty by immediately boosting the Guaranteed Income Supplement for single low-income seniors by 10%. We will also restore the eligibility age for Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement to 65, putting an average of $13,000 into the pockets of the lowest income Canadians each year, as they become seniors. Because many seniors live on fixed incomes, we will introduce a new Seniors Price Index to make sure that Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement benefits keep up with seniors’ actual rising costs. We will also make the Compassionate Care Benefit more flexible and easier to access, so that those who are caring for seriously ill family members – not just family members who are at risk of death – can access 6 months of benefits. We will prioritize investments in affordable housing and seniors’ facilities, build more new housing units and refurbish old ones, give support to municipalities to maintain rentgeared-to-income subsidies in co-ops.

We will encourage the construction of new rental housing by removing all GST on new capital investments in affordable rental housing. This will provide $125 million per year in tax incentives to grow and renovate the supply of rental housing across Canada.

This will ease the burden on Canadians facing the death of a spouse, or a decision to accommodate an elderly family member. 7242302

Dr. Joshua Greggain (centre) practices his real life super hero pose, as he competed at a tough mudder competition for Multiple Sclerosis in Chilliwack.

Federal election day is Monday

Are you ready to vote? If you’re a Canadian citizen, 18 or older, you can vote in the federal election. Your voter information card tells you when and where to vote. If you didn’t receive your card, you can still register and vote at your polling place. To find out where to vote, and what ID to bring, visit elections.ca or call 1-800-463-6868 ( TTY 1-800-361-8935). Elections Canada has all the information you need to be ready to vote.

Esteemed Dr. Joshua Greggain recently won the Fraser Health Above and Beyond Award (Service Delivery Excellence) for his outstanding contribution to improving healthcare in Hope and the Fraser Canyon. “There were unique challenges and opportunities when I started my full time practice in 2007 at a rural hospital — there were challenging times and we had to be creative,” Dr. Joshua Greggain told The Hope Standard of the trajectory of his success over the past few years at the Fraser Canyon Hospital. According to Greggain, physicians practice rural generalism out here, and have to be prepared for a host of circumstances and situations specific to an isolated setting. “There are inherent risks and you have to do certain things in care of patients,” said Greggain. “You have to act — you have to be able do things you’re not comfortable with for that patient,” he said. “If a heart needs to be shocked — you do it, and that takes courage.” Passionate about his work, Greggain has been acknowledged by peers and contemporaries for the excellent service he provides to the community. With his ground breaking initiatives and the retention of a phenomenal team of ten local physicians, Greggain has been delivering quality care to the rural communities he serves, while addressing the shortage of doctors. Greggain has embarked on a tireless journey to deal with the lack of physicians here, by creating an inspiring environment, where professionals can work together, persevere, be inspired and commit to exceeding the standard of care the industry currently provides to its patients. “It’s about creating better care and providing care that’s exceptional in a community this size,” he said. The lively and humorous Greggain, told The Hope Standard that one of his biggest challenges was attracting talent to a smaller community, so it was key for him to create an impactful environment where interns and physicians, regardless of future plans to stay in the community can grow, learn and thrive. “This type of environment sends out the message that Hope has a program attractive to doctors,” said Greggain.Implementing a strong leadership model, Greggain has been instrumental in attracting family physicians, International Medical Graduates and locums to Hope and surrounding areas, while providing comprehensive care, 24 hours a day at the Fraser Canyon Hospital. “It’s about stability and we have a strong core group who are willing and available to go above and beyond — we have a group of people who are committed, people who want to stay for the passion of it,” he said. Because of its unique location on a major highway crossroads the Fraser Canyon Hospital has been indispensable to patients in the area. Having extra hands on board at the Hospital has improved the patient to physician ratio, while ensuring a higher quality of life for the practitioners (who can often be at risk of burnout with the ongoing problem of physician shortages across Canada.) An outreach initiative started by Greggain in Boston Bar has put the Fraser Canyon on the map in terms of new strategies and medical technologies to address gaps in local health care — a satellite clinic in Anderson Creek is the first of its kind and represents a careful collaboration between Boston Bar, First Nations, Chilliwack Division of Family Practice, Fraser Health and Health Canada. Public, mental and primary health care services are also available through a state of the art telehealth and video-health service that offers a life line to isolated patients. The telehealth unit located at the Fraser Canyon Clinic on Wallace Street is as simple as hooking up the link, and through a live teleconference, patients from surrounding areas like Boston Bar can receive first rate care with physicians in Hope. “Telehealth is the way of the future — it’s a way to bridge the gap geographically, while addressing socioeconomic issues and providing a once a week outreach in Boston Bar,” said Greggain.

Sports Heading up the creek on cue Barry Stewart Hope Standard The fall run of kokanee salmon should be heading up the creeks on the east side of Kawkawa Lake. These are a version of sockeye salmon, which have lost the urge to spend part of their time in the ocean. Like its searun cousin, the kokanee’s body takes on a red colour when spawning and the head turns dark green. Males develop a bigger jaw and humped back. Locals have known about the Kawkawa kokanees for many years but few, perhaps, are aware that the lake has another species of Pacific salmon that has lost its wanderlust and is happy to live full-time in the lake. Coho. If you’ve ever caught a spotted fish in Kawkawa Lake that you know wasn’t a cutthroat or rainbow trout, it probably was a non-anadromous or “landlocked” coho, says Nick Basok of Rosedale. Basok spent 25 years as a fish culturist at the Fraser Valley Trout hatchery in Abbotsford before retiring and taking on a job at Chilliwack Dart and Tackle. He continues to serve as a public advisor for the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. “I first fished Kawkawa in 1961 with my dad,” said Basok on Monday. “The lake at that time was stocked with rainbow and they actually grew quite large — two to three pounds — and there was a good amount of kokanee also. “I believe the stocking was PHOTO BY NICK BASOK halted in the late 60's or early 70's and that eventually the An avid fishermen displays the specimen of a resident coho salmon at Kawkawa Lake.

A BIG THANK YOU!!! Why did Bob and I remain in Hope for the duration of 50 years married, raised two children, bought real estate, vehicles, gas, groceries, clothing and everything to sustain our family and support our town? Our wonderful little town has always been there for us and on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, Bob and Keenan’s Celebration of Life at the Hope Legion Hall was no exception. Overflowing with people and love. It gave me the strength to speak about Keenan and partake in their Celebration of Life. To all of you wonderful friends, we thank you for all of your work making the celebration so special, so many, it’s hard to name names. Special hugs to all of you for the food, cards, flowers, phone calls, visitors, relatives, donations to Hope Hospital Auxiliary. Overwhelming support, thank you all. How fortunate we are to have our hospital. Bob’s care was exceptional, to all of you we thank you. We’ve saved one of the best for the last - Hope Medical Center and one everlasting hug for Dr. E. Nanton, Bob loved you. Echo & Joel Johnson
