Local pharmacy completes role in genomics project Pharmasave is one of 33 pharmacies chosen for the first-of-its kind study Erin Knutson and BC Pharmacy Association Pharmasave in Hope has taken part in North America’s first research project that ultimately aims to bring the science of pharmacogenomics to patients using their community pharmacy. Pharmacogenomics uses a person’s genetics to uncover which drugs and in what dosage work best for them. The project, called 'Genomics for Precision Drug Therapy in the Community Pharmacy,' was funded by the
BC Pharmacy Association (BCPhA) and Genome British Columbia (Genome BC) with research being done by a team at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Across the province 33 community pharmacies recruited 200 volunteer patients to be part of the project. The project set out to position the pharmacist as the health-care provider through which patient genetic information can be acquired, assessed and used to guide drug therapy decisions. Until now, this

work had been done almost exclusively in cancer agencies or research labs. "I am excited that the community of Hope has had the opportunity to be involved in a project that may shape the future of pharmacy - allowing patients to know which medications are right for them before they even start,” said Lindsay Kufta, pharmacist at the Hope Pharmasave, one of the pharmacies involved in the project. “It was great to see how many people in our community were eager to participate in this project that has the potential

UBC researchers will do a retrospective analysis of DNA information to learn how genetics would have altered the drug dosage patients were prescribed. “One of the most immediate opportunities for genomics in health care is to guide treatment decisions and reduce the risk of adverse drug reactions. This project is tackling just that by enabling pharmacists the insights needed to match the right medication, at the right dose, to the right patient,” said Dr. Catalina Lopez-Correa, Vice President, Sectors and Chief Scientific Officer, Genome BC. “This work reflects Genome BC’s ambition to translate the value of genomics to end-users in B.C. and beyond.” In recent years, pharmacogenomics, or using a person’s genetics to tailor their drug treatment, has only been used to treat cancer or rare diseases. However, there are more than 150 medications – ranging from mental health to heart disease to cancer drugs – that are impacted by a patient’s DNA. According to Dr. Corey Nislow, associate professor at the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at UBC, the research is especially

Local hero contributes to friend’s fight against MS
Greg Turnbull (right) featured with his son Alex has been fighting the good fight against MS for over two decades. He no longer has the ability to walk and recently received the Quality of Life Grant from the Rick Hansen Foundation.
Erin Knutson Hope Standard A local hero recently helped a friend conquer the complications of Multiple Sclerosis. Douglas Hondo Stroyan (who most know as Hondo) and current president of the Hope Rotar y
Club, sent a letter on behalf of his longtime friend Greg Turnbull to petition the Rick Hansen Foundation (RHF) for the Quality of Life Grant. The grant which is for an amount up to $3,816, was awarded to Turnbull after he made an application to
the foundation based on Stroyan's initial inquir y for the purchase of a scooter. “I have done something for a friend that anyone else would have done,” Stroyan told The Hope Standard. The mobility aid will help Turnbull

With Stroyan’s ingenuity and business acumen, he issued a challenge to all the Keg restaurants, during Hansen's 26 month tour. His efforts did not go unrealized, and upon Hansen's return home, Stroyan presented the foundation with another cheque totaling $80,000 for spinal cord research. Since those glor y days at the Keg, Turnbull was diagnosed with Chronic Progressive Multiple Sclerosis almost two decades ago, just as he was becoming a father. Turnbull has lost the use of his legs and his energy level dropped to the point where he was unable to work. As a result of complications from the disease he lost his job as a senior sales executive in real estate, forcing him and his young son Alex to live on a fixed

Seabird college takes it up a notch
Seabird College students take their careers up a notch with Canada-BC partnership Students across British Columbia are receiving the training they need for jobs in their communities, thanks to the federal and provincial partnership under the Canada Job Fund. This includes $108,874 for two Project-Based Training (PBT) programs offered at Seabird College: $94,648 for a Camp Cook Training program and $14,226 for a Basic Security Training program. These two programs are now under way with training expected to finish by the end of Februar y 2016. They are part of a total investment of more than $10.4 million in 46 training programs benefitting British Columbians across the
province thanks to the Canada-B.C. Job Fund Agreement under the Employer-Sponsored Training stream. "Targeted skills training provides students with job-ready skills to access quality careers in B.C.," Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness said. "I really appreciate UFV Trades and Technical Centre working with Seabird to put on these high-quality programs - I've tasted the results, and they are great." These skills training programs support B.C.'s regional labour market demands and provide opportunities to youth, women, Indigenous people, immigrants and other eligible participants to receive training as well as industr y recognized certificates or credentials.

Walking into Mountain Border Floral & Gifts in Hope, one is immediately struck by the enticing smell of the boutique. The flower and gift shop has been around for over 26 years and is located in a historical building on Hudson Bay Street. It served as a fort over 100 years ago during the gold rush, before it was converted into a store. One might even be so bold as to say it has a kind of magic, inspiring romance on the dreariest of winter days. It boasts a seasonal collection of winter flowers that includes arrangements titled 'Isn't it romantic,' 'Victorian romance,' and 'Isle of white.' The rustic and welcoming shop is heart warming, whimsical and inspiring. Filled with plants and flowers of all kinds, it's hard not to be moved by the bouquet of colours and the smell of uplifting aromas. Candles, soy blocks (that can be melted down and the oils used as cuticle softeners) of tantalizing combinations, coffee mugs, trinkets and unique keepsakes fill the inviting space. Shop manager and apprentice florist Mary Bourke greets The Hope Standard at the door with a warm smile, as the shop's mascot Jasper (a black cat) sleeps in a brown box on the counter. One thing is clear, Bourke loves what she does, and emphasizes that running a flower shop is not work at all. Bourke imparts that her team is complimentary and working with head florist Elaine Peterson is a joy.

The cost of efficiency
Thursday, February 4, 2016 The Hope Standard
Published by Black Press Lt. at 540 Wallace St., Hope, B.C. every Thursday.
Recent health care discussions between provincial and federal health ministers highlight a common lament: How to do more with less. Current health care spending in B.C. consumes more than 40 cents of every government dollar spent. And that amount is expected to climb as our population ages. Controlling those costs is not a new priority. In fact, some might suggest it has become a preoccupation with health care administrators. Instead of delivering the best care possible, they look for the best value. Sometimes the two are complementary, sometimes they are not. There’s little doubt that emerging “Home is Best” initiatives by local hospitals offers a little of both. These types of progams are aimed at helping people get on their feet and into their homes sooner by providing care and support inside and outside the traditional hospital setting. That encourages independence, and if done properly, promotes better health. But it also frees resources that could be better spent elsewhere. The potential savings have long been identified. It costs roughly $1,200 a day for an acute care bed in a B.C. hospital. Other programs have tried to unclog a system that too often sees patients occupying expensive beds while there are cheaper options elsewhere. But while it is important to be fiscally responsible, health care in Canada is about more than the bottom line. If we are to save money by moving people back into the community, it is critical that adequate resources be in place to support them. A recent report by the B.C.’s seniors advocate suggests there’s still work to be done. Isobel Mackenzie argues the increase in home care support hours is not keeping pace with the demand. That is troubling news. Several decades ago governments made the admirable decision to close large mental health institutions and move to a more community-centred approach. Unfortunately the enthusiasm for the closure of those facilities wasn’t matched by a commitment to provide local support. Consequently we failed – and continue to fail – some of our most vulnerable citizens. Finding efficiencies within our health care system is a worthy goal. But not if those savings come at the expense of the very people the system is there to help. Black Press
Urban drug ghettos aren’t working B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher Communities around B.C. are struggling to cope with the continued influx of what politicians call “homelessness,” a term that suggests the problem can be solved merely by providing more homes. Taxpaying citizens see the daily reality behind the soothing euphemisms – mainly transients squatting in parks and “tent cities” blighted by drug abuse and crime, and “homeless” shelters that fill up as soon as they open. They worry that the continued costly supply of supports only invites more arrivals, particularly in the gentle climate of southwestern B.C. Their worries are well founded.
In Abbotsford, a 40-bed “temporary weather shelter” made from industrial camp trailers opened in December with a $450,000 operating grant from B.C. Housing. It was full in 10 days. Abbotsford Police Chief Bob Rich told city council in January that his bike officers don’t recognize most of the shelter occupants from their constant patrols of local tent camps, the largest of which has been on a city-owned roadside site since 2013. In Maple Ridge, a “low barrier harm reduction” shelter was opened last fall in response to a growing tent camp and accompanying drug dealing, prostitution and petty crime. One resident noted bitterly that a mayor’s task force had identified 42 unsheltered homeless people, then found places for 77 from the camp, 40 from a closing “temporary” shelter and 40 in a new shel-

ter. “How exactly does one house 157 out of 42?” she asked. Victoria’s camping population has gathered in an Occupy-style squat on provincial land next to the courthouse, after years of uncontrolled camping in Beacon Hill and other city parks. The city opened a shelter in a vacant Boys and Girls Club gym, complete with new indoor tents. By the time that was full, the courthouse camp was bigger than ever, with some occupants describing how they came to town for the opportunity. One said Vancouver Police gave her a bus ticket to Victoria. The latest plan by a local agency that runs Victoria shelters is to convert an old, empty seniors’ care home into a 101-bed permanent housing facility. This would also be “low barrier,” a euphemism for allowing drug and alcohol consumption in
the rooms. The city has come up with around $1 million for this project, in a residential area next to a school, but it still needs millions more to renovate and run it. This would presumably come from B.C. taxpayers via our social housing czar, deputy premier Rich Coleman. Coleman pioneered this “housing first” experiment in 2007, buying up 13 century-old “single-room occupancy” hotels in Vancouver’s notorious Downtown Eastside. These crumbling bedbug habitats were bought and renovated for a staggering $143 million, plus a 15-year maintenance commitment and a cop assigned to each one in an effort to contain the chaos inside. Coleman brags endlessly about the great job he has done, but how is that actually working? A new study by Simon Fraser University researchers provides a

more objective assessment. Tracking 433 mentally ill homeless adults over 10 years, the study found the concentration of lowrent accommodation, food handouts, street outreach and medical supports resulted in “significant personal decline rather than recovery. As evidenced by their involvement in the criminal justice system, large increases in acute care and prolonged homelessness were the result.” The rate of people arriving in this service-intensive hellhole has tripled in the last 10 years, a finding similar to studies of concentrated services in New York, Sao Paulo and Osaka. It’s a cautionary tale for other urban communities where this failed containment model is proposed. Tom Fletcher is B.C. legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Letters Hope & District Chamber of Commerce three part series biased After attending the recent Chamber of Commerce banquet, the first in a series of three, “Past” I was shocked at the audacity, and blow heartedness of the speakers and emcee. This meeting being the first, was supposed to be an objective forum, in how to correct our current fiscal dilemma, and return us back on a track of fiscal responsibility. Instead, it was nothing more than, "a show off-a-thon", by an ex Mayor that was only tooting his horn, as well as the cars he's trying to sell. For this individual to boast of his fiscal responsibility, in a time when prudent function of law, and towing the line was based on
totalitarianism, and nothing to do with consultation and conciliation, was disgustingly rude, divisive, and at the very least absurd. To compare the responsibilities of spending, at a time, when the Federal Government paid for the largest, of what now is our greatest expense, policing costs, was neither fair or constructive, in devising ways for future spending. Then to add insult to injury, an ex-Member of Parliament, boasting and delivering instruction, on how to break moral law, and responsible Governmental procedure to attract new business into the community. Responsible procedure that guarantees healthy and vibrant communities, and protects us from ill health
and unfair and biased procedures. Obviously, his own industrial caused lung cancer, works for him, so why not everyone else. His reluctance to care for the environment and future generations, in his own words, "not business friendly,” is the beginning of the end, and only demonstrates his, and his past governments lack of concern for anything that is not monetary. Then to put the icing on the cake, the emcee, a failed mayoral candidate, uses the event, kowtowing to popular misconceptions, as well as an ill informed and unengaged public, to ridicule his opposition, to politicize his own agenda.
It's unfortunate, that now, what appears to be a partisan crowd, probably has become tainted from any objective discussion, and that this biased political infusion of right wing politics, follows in the preachings of its American Republican counterpart, Donald Trump. Hopefully, the Chamber can come up with a more professional, unbiased, and constructive economic team of speakers for round two, "Present!” Art Green Hope
District encouraged to attend three part series ent Mayor as he asked an inappropriate and unwarranted question after Bud had spoken. Mr. Mayor, you should heed some of Bud's advice. Listen and learn. Ray Zervini gave us great insight into the history of the Chamber of Commerce and Chuck Strahl gave sound advice as to how important it is to prepare for the necessary funds required to see Hope prosper and move forward in the future. I hope the Mayor and Council were listening. We encourage, for the next two meetings in this series, the people of the District to come listen, participate and let the Mayor and Council know that we will hold them accountable for the future.

My brother and I are relatively new to Hope having moved here in May 2015. For several months we have listened to our neighbours complain about the current Mayor and Council and, after having an issue as well, we decided to attend the first of a series of three meetings hosted by the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce. We were glad we did and we thank various people for encouraging us to go. What we heard from the former Mayor, Bud Gardner, was, and we mean this as a compliment, a good old boy, common sense attitude (as Mayor) of listening to the Chamber of Commerce and the people of the District. This attitude appears to have dwindled as the years have passed and was demonstrated by the pres-

Beavers have recently constructed a new lodge at Thacker Regional Park in Hope, right at the junction of Sucker’s Creek and the Coquihalla River. The structure is huge, as 6-foot-tall resident Mark Glentworth discovered during a recent visit. Multiple entrances and exits can be seen on the lodge and the chewed remains of several trees felled by the beavers lay on the ground nearby – a testament to this aquatic rodent’s razor-sharp teeth.

Insights from chef Hiro Takeda of 293 Wallace Street Hiro Takeda Special Standard
Restaurants are interesting places. I’ve always been fascinated by them, and the people who decide to venture into operating them. It’s a fast paced environment, where the demands of the guests, the stresses of cooking for multiple people at a time, all while maintaining the margins in order to reap the small percentage of profit that comes for those lucky enough to survive their first few years of business. It’s in this environment that I was raised, and through years of pondering, I’ve come across a fascinating and almost ironic conclusion. We try to teach the staff at our restaurant, as well as what I often discuss with my friends, the value of the term “reward.” In life, the things that make us happiest are those that present the most meaningful rewards. For some, it’s the reward of a good pay cheque, which ultimately gives you the ability to live the lifestyle you choose to live. This is in no way a bad thing, and those who are rewarded financially for the hard work that they do are, of course, deserving of it. As the system we have created revolves around one constant truth, that we need money to survive, we can very easily see that money is the most obvious of rewards. But what are the other rewards? And for those in the restaurant industry, who work tirelessly for longer hours than they should, while getting paid far less than they should, it’s an interesting question to bring up. I mean, there has to be other rewards for
anyone to go through what they need to in order to work in a kitchen. The most passionate and talented people I know in our industry are those who are willing to work these hours and get paid the wage they do because they somehow see that it’s all worth it. From what I’ve experienced and from what I’ve seen, it’s the life skills that you learn in a kitchen that are the rewards that mean the most, and I’ve only been fortunate in the past few years to finally understand that. In our restaurant, we try our best to provide an environment where we can learn these life skills together. Whether, it’s choosing to humble yourself and apologize when you’ve made a mistake, or choosing to forgive when others have not met your expectations; or whether, it’s choosing to take the extra time to help someone with their prep, or taking the time to move out of your comfort zone and try something new despite the risk of failure, these life lessons are essential in molding and shaping a better person. When you are in an environment where you are able to exercise these virtues on a daily basis, you’re able to create habits, and these habits turn into even greater rewards. Because you were able to apologize when you over-seasoned a steak, you became aware of when you hadn’t met the expectation of someone you love, and you are able to apologize for that. Because you chose to forgive a fellow cook for forgetting to roast the brussel sprouts, you’re able to forgive when your 4 year-old son comes into the living room, forgetting to
take the muddy runners off of his feet. Because you’ve learned to make it part of your nature to try and help out those in need of an extra push, when the restaurant is full and the bills are piling up, you’re more willing to help a friend move, or give someone words of encouragement when life gets them down. The ironic conclusion is this: the rewards that take effort in finding are often the most rewarding. Oscar Wilde once said, “Experience is the hardest kind of
teacher, it gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.” Through the experience of working in a kitchen, and more importantly, through the failures that I’ve experienced and continue to experience, these are the core values that I believe can be taught. And, I think that’s why we do it. I think, deep down, that’s the reason why we as chefs are passionate about what we do. We work in a very rich environment, just a different kind of rich.

Help offered to struggling mining industry Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. government has released the first phase of its aerial survey of mineral deposits in a largely unexplored region of
northwest B.C. GeoscienceBC, a non-profit established by the province a decade ago to stimulate mining activity in areas affected by the mountain pine beetle epidemic, released data from an area
from Smithers south to Kitimat and east to Houston. Maps of geological formations are constructed from magnetic surveys done by helicopter. The results were released Tuesday at the Association
for Mineral Exploration B.C. Roundup conference in Vancouver. Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett said the project is assembling the largest geoscience database in B.C. history, with much more
precision than an earlier survey in the 1960s. The next phase will be be to the east, from Houston to the Vanderhoof area. The region has had little surface prospecting because it is covered with

glacial deposits from the last ice age. "There are Highland Valley copper deposits out there," Bennett said. "There are Brucejack gold deposits out there. There are huge zinc, silver, lead deposits out there. They've been found before in B.C." With mining investment stalled by low commodity prices and some existing operations shut down, Premier Christy Clark opened the conference by announcing a plan to let mining companies defer their BC Hydro bills to keep operating. The bills would have to be paid later with interest, when metal and coal prices recover. The association released its own study before the conference, detailing that more than half of the province is either off limits to mineral exploration or restricted. Some of that is from parks or protected areas, while other areas are subject to land use plans the association described as "overlapping and sometimes ambiguous." Bennett said he appreciates the reminder about land restrictions, which he described as difficult to change even when wildlife habitat or other circumstances have changed since restrictions were imposed. The industry also has to accept that public and First Nations expectations have changed greatly in recent years, and mining has to adapt to that reality, he said.

DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN Pest Management Plan: BC Hydro Power Line Corridors 2016-2021
The use of pesticides is intended within the area to which the Pest Management Plan (PMP) applies. The purpose of the proposed PMP is to control vegetation under, above and near BC Hydro’s power lines in order to maintain the safe and reliable delivery of electricity to our customers. This plan applies to all areas of British Columbia where BC Hydro manages its transmission and distribution system and associated power line corridors, access roads and helipads. The proposed duration of the PMP is from April 2016 to April 2021. Vegetation incompatible with the operation of the power system will be controlled using: physical (manual brushing, mowing, girdling, grooming, pruning, tree removal), cultural (compatible land use), biological (release of parasitic insects to control invasive plants), and chemical (herbicide application) techniques, or any combination of these methods. The active ingredients and trade names of the herbicides proposed for use under this plan include:
Lost hard drive prompts changes Tom Fletcher Black Press Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has made nine recommendations to the B.C. government to prevent incident like the loss of a portable hard drive containing 3.4 million education ministry student files. Policies for protecting personal information were not followed, staff training was not adequate and compliance with rules was not monitored, Denham said in a report released this week. Recommendations include mandatory
encryption of personal data and an audit system to make sure security procedures are followed. The portable hard drive was made as a backup and reported missing in September 2015 after an extensive search of a secure government warehouse in the Victoria area. The hard drive has not been located. It contained student names, date of birth and personal education numbers which in some cases could be linked to lists of cancer survivors, children in care and those with special needs to be considered.

Sports Teen referees in demand for atom hockey tournaments Barry Stewart Hope Standard Hope teens in black and white shirts were in high demand down the valley last weekend, for Chilliwack Minor Hockey’s annual atom house and atom rep tournament. With games running concurrently on as many as four ice sheets, there was a big need for extra officials from other communities. Hope’s referee-in-chief, Paul Fredrickson said on Monday, “We’ve got about a half a dozen young refs, not counting Brennan Walker and Blake Deschenes, in Hope now. We had Jake Druet, Brady Loring, Brandon Pennell and Vinny Pellegrino down in Chilliwack over the weekend.” Loring and Pennell, who attended the same reffing course in Merritt and reffed their inaugural game together last season, officiated in five straight games in Chilliwack. Loring was the head ref in one match and Pennell led the way in three others. “It was tiring,” said Pennell, Monday. “My feet hurt.” Pennell, who just turned 15, plays defence for Chilliwack’s AAA-rep bantam team and he had a game in Seattle, Sunday. He was back at Prospera Centre on Monday for dry land training, followed by an on-ice practice. There’s not much spare time for the grade 9 Hope Secondary student but he gets in some shifts in the kitchen at McDonald’s and wears the stripes for one or two games a week, on average. “It’s another hobby and it’s fun,” said Pennell of reffing. “I’ll probably keep doing it even when I’m an adult.” Speaking of adults, Pennell, Loring and another linesman had to get between opposing coaches at an atom rep game, Saturday. “They were almost getting into a fight,” said Pennell. Respect for officials is a topic that came up in the NHL last week, when Calgary Flames defenceman Dennis Wideman crosschecked linesman Don Henderson from behind. The same night, former Hope Minor Hockey player and referee, Jay Sharrers caught a misplaced punch from the LA Kings’ Milan Lucic. Sharrers is in his 27th season as an NHL official. They have to look out for pucks and errant sticks but minor hockey refs don’t usually have to deal with physical abuse. Verbal abuse has been a concern, though and Hope’s referee-in-chief says a new initiative, endorsed by Vancouver Canucks president Trevor Linden has had a positive effect on the respect shown to on-ice officials. “It started this year,” said Fredrickson. “The parents have to take a one-hour course called ‘Sportsmanship Starts in the Stands.’ The parents then have to sign a form and the team manager keeps the papers.” There’s a lot of volunteerism around a hockey rink — but the Zamboni driver and the refs always get paid. Reffing is a job that demands accountability. Loring said he won’t refuse the cash but “I’m not really in it for the money. I love reffing — and it’s a good way to stay fit and learn about the game.” Loring, 13, plays defence on Hope’s bantam C Wildcats. He said his grandma, Sandra Loring is a good friend of Sharrers’ mom, Barb. “I met Jay when he was in Hope last year,” said Loring. “He came by the rink to watch the refs and give us some tips on reffing. BARRY STEWART/ THE STANDARD “One of the tips was to go through with your call Four Hope-based officials, including Brady Loring (left) and Brandon Pennell were an important addition to the staff at Chilliwack’s atom house and atom — even if it’s a bad one. And be confident and have rep hockey tournament last weekend. Loring and Pennell worked together in five consecutive games, Saturday at Twin Rinks. fun out there.”
