The Integrated Official Community Plan (IOCP) 2040 was officially introduced to the people of Hope during an open house on Tuesday in council chambers at District Hall. “The IOCP is intended to express a community's goals, policies and aspirations for the future�, said a District of Hope press release statement. The event gave District staff the rare opportunity to present Phase 3 of its IOCP plan, which is still in the finalization stages, but open to the public consultation process. Attendees flocked to the plan which was displayed on several

boards around council chambers. Members of the community were able to have a look at the extensive guide, which will inform community decision making over the next 20 years. The open house allowed for people to review, comment, and discuss with one another elements of the plan, as well as having the opportunity to participate and contribute to what is a considered a living community document. Components of the IOCP were also outlined on a white board, as District staff explained the various elements to guests.

and a Land Use Management Plan (including updated Development Permit Area guidelines and Hazard Mapping). The three plans will help encourage community growth, while protecting its citizens, and breaking down certain barriers to help with the development of land use, and to encourage business to come to Hope. “The plan is 60 to 70 per cent done,� said District Planner Howie Choy. “Phase 1 and 2 have been completed and now we're just finalizing Phase 3�.

News Strahl seeks local art for Ottawa exhibit To promote artists and photographers in Chilliwack and Hope, local Member of Parliament Mark Strahl will be showcasing local art and photos in his Ottawa office in a new monthly exhibit and is encouraging local artists and photographers from across the riding to submit their work. Work will also be featured on Mr. Strahl’s website: www.

markstrahl.com. In accordance with the artist’s wishes, works will be exhibited in the gallery for several weeks before being returned to the artist, donated to local charities, or presented as gifts to the visiting delegations. A new artist will be featured every month. Exhibits will include a write-up of the artist, including a biography and contact informa-

tion, as well as the artist’s social media and website information. Fellow Parliamentarians, as well as visitors from across Canada and around the world, will have an opportunity to take in the works of the many talented artists in Chilliwack-Hope. “This new local art exhibit is an outstanding opportunity to not only promote the beautiful riding of Chilli-

wack-Hope in Ottawa, but also to showcase the incredibly talented artists we have here”, said MP Mark Strahl. “I am pleased to begin receiving submissions, and am particularly looking forward to submissions that highlight the natural beauty of our riding”. Those interested in this opportunity are asked to contact Mr. Strahl’s office for more information.

Court backs home marijuana growers Tom Fletcher Black Press

The Federal Court of Canada has struck down regulations requiring licensed medical marijuana users to buy from Ottawa-approved growers, giving people the green light to continue growing in the comfort of home. The ruling is suspended for six months, but the four B.C. residents who launched the court challenge had their growing licences protected under an earlier interim order. Thousands of people in B.C. and across Canada received licences to either grow pot themselves or designate someone else to do it, before the Conservative government attempted to restrict production to large commercial growers who sent it by mail. With the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau intent on legalizing recreational marijuana use, Kirk Tousaw, a lawyer for the four, says the latest ruling should "once and for all end the stigmatization and criminalization" for medical users and their providers. "And in addition, all pending criminal cases against medical cannabis producers, patients, growers and dispensaries should be immediately terminated," Tousaw told CTV Wednesday. "There is absolutely no reason in this day and age to continue to prosecute people for helping people improve their quality of life with medical cannabis."

Federal Court Judge Michael Phelan ruled that preventing people from growing marijuana for medical purposes violates section seven of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which guarantees "the right to life, liberty and security of the person." The court challenge was brought by: • Neil Allard, 61, of Nanaimo, a former counsellor for Veterans Affairs Canada until he was granted medical retirement in 1999 due to "chronic fatigue syndrome." He started growing his own marijuana after finding he was "sensitive to pharmaceutical medication," according to court documents.

Students and faculty enjoy a warm lunch as part of a community kitchen program provided by UFV Hope Centre. From left to right: Michelle Vandepol, Jesse Tobacco, Alice Byrd and Leah Felker shared valuable insight with one another about the new food sharing program on campus.

UFV provides food sharing lifeline Hope Standard

The picturesque UFV Hope Centre campus opened its doors to The Hope Standard for a bowl of soup and to discuss its unique food sharing program. Students gathered around the campus' kitchen table and spoke candidly of their experience at UFV, and how it has enriched their lives, as well as the benefits of accessibility, increased self-esteem and a sense of comradeship. Hope Centre launched its food share cooperative this year. The program was created to alleviate stigmatization around accessing a food bank during the lean student years, and to promote a healthy standard of food security. “The food sharing program is something we started this September — we wanted to alleviate food insecurity,” said UFV Hope Centre Coordinator Michelle Vandepol. “Students can take a few items one day and bring them back on pay day". Students have the opportunity to share food by trading items in an allotted kitchen cupboard on campus, and bringing them back when they can. This allows the students to help one an-

other cope with the financial worries of working less, raising families, and dealing with tuition. “We determined a need, for one, because they're students working minimum wage jobs — within the organization we knew that there were other food banks on other campuses and we had students assigned to those banks, waiting for delivery in a crisis, and it was a major stress situation. Sometimes all they needed was a can of soup for the night,” said Vandepol. The food sharing program creates a casual environment, where students manage together, much like the community environment alive and well on campus. They ban together to help one another out, through a tight knit networking capacity, whether that be finding a job, or a new place to live. The kitchen is often where the heart is, and a shared community lunch on Wednesday's provides an opportunity for students and teachers to catch up, while enjoying a hearty bowl of chicken soup made by UFV math teacher Danica Matheson. The endearing students seemed at ease with one another.

They were bright and upbeat as they openly discussed their lives and the food sharing program at UFV. Leah Felker is a mature student who finished upgrading this year, graduating at Christmas with her Adult Dogwood diploma. She has been with UFV for two years now, and is taking prep courses to begin her education toward a psychiatric nurse certification. The mother of three finds school a joy that provides a rare patch of time in her busy schedule, as she navigates the campus at Hope Centre.

“The hours are the same as my girls'. It was such a relief to come to school, it was like my time you know — I never really took time for myself before, now this is like my break, my relaxation,” she told The Hope Standard. The straight A student enjoys the small class sizes and the accessibility of the location, as well as the convenience of the food sharing progam. “If you don't have dinner prepared for one night, it's great. My girls have skating twice a week, so if you don't have time to go

to the grocery store it's there — it's come in handy many, many times,” she said. “I've brought lots of food to that cupboard and taken lots of food from that cupboard.” Alice Byrd is currently the oldest Hope Centre student at 53 and has found the entire experience to be uplifting as well as confidence boosting. “I've had to participate with the food bank and I'm not necessarily fond of it it, but here I can exchange the food, and it goes to somebody who needs it.”

The original source of the drug, salicylic acid, was the bark of the willow tree, known and used by the Sumerians about 5000 years ago. Salicylic acid was isolated from this bark in 1763 but it was too irritating to the stomach. Finally, in 1897, the Bayer company in Germany patented acetylsalicylic acid and the rest is history.

Byrd is finishing her grade 12, and looking toward a career working in addictions and recovery. “UFV is absolutely fabulous, I came from a grade seven education, thought I would try it, and it has been wonderful. The staff here are amazing,” she said. Hope Centre has three full time teachers including Danica Matheson, Kevin Renso and Mark Friesen that make the experience at UFV all the more rewarding. The expertise of the instructors in their fields is remarkable and the one on one attention has been profound to the learning success of the students. Byrd is also working full time at the Swiss Chalet Motel in Hope and taking online courses, which she finds somewhat difficult as an auditory and visual learner, but access to instructors has eased her mind regarding some of those difficulties. “For me, it's size. I'm really unsure of myself in a large crowd, so having that access to one on one is invaluable to me. It's one of

the major reasons I've been able to stay committed to what I want to do and to believe in myself enough to know that I can do it,” she said. For Byrd, the experience is about learning to communicate effectively with others and to become an active listener, so that she can better help people. “Let's put it this way, I have confidence now,” she said of her time spent at UFV. Jesse Tobacco is a new student at Hope

Centre and is currently upgrading her math and English, so that she can move on to bigger and better things, like following her artistic inclinations and dreams. “I think I would stick with UFV in the future, I don't know what the other campuses are like, but the best thing about this one is that it's small,” she said. “I'm from the city and I've never gone to school in the inner city, it's always been super small classes, and I'm very

accustomed to that.” With students juggling so many priorities, the programs at UFV Hope Centre offer them a lifeline. “If you're waiting to get your degree, you're probably working a couple of minimum wage jobs already, and if you're a mature student you probably have family obligations as well, so if by having the food sharing program we can eliminate some of the stress all the better” said Vandepol.

Raeside corner

The spring in our step I don’t think Justin Trudeau can take credit, “Sunny Ways” aside, but the weather around here lately has been positively breathtaking. OK, maybe more like breath restoring as it feels like one comes alive as one strolls outside taking in a big gulp of fresh air that suddenly seems in abundance after too much grey for too long, even though it wasn’t long at all by Canadian standards. There’s a spring in everyone’s step it seems as the brain awakens to what life can be once again once it’s nice outside. Not that winter activities are gone, the beauty of those big snowfalls is that spring skiing will be even better, it’s just that one starts to think of one’s golf swing and some lucky individuals have even been out already. Of course Mother Nature always has her own agenda and a teaser of better things to come can always be followed by a winter wallop so stay tuned. I’m pretty sure that’s where that lamb, lion thing for the month of March comes in, duh. Bottom line? Enjoy the great weather while you can. I’m one of those idiots who still thinks the Canucks have a chance, although outside at best, of making the playoffs. Then again, that might be part of the spring fever item I discussed earlier. I always find it

funny how when the Canucks lose a couple in a row, especially at home, it’s “trade the Sedins, blow up the team, let the kids play, fire the coach, bring back Luongo, bring back the orange uniforms, bring back Harold Snepsts.” OK, I might be exaggerating slightly about Snepsts but I always liked him and the way he played. And then when the Canucks win a couple in a row it’s “hey, these kids can play, and they’re learning so much from the Sedins, and the future looks bright and wait until next year when the kids are all a little bit better.” Unfortunately, unless they run the table, it is most likely ‘next year’ at this point and they may even trade a few veterans for draft picks before the end of the month just to emphasize the point. However, as it stands today, it looks like the Canucks will have lots of company as the other five Canadian teams are also on the outside looking in at the playoffs. The likely prospect of the Leafs, Habs, Jets, Oilers, Canucks and Flames all missing the playoffs must be a little more than disconcerting for the Canadian television networks. However, for the rest of us, that’s where the great spring weather comes in. So, get out and enjoy it, Black Press

Bowing to the power of judges B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher One of the great enduring legacies of Pierre Trudeau’s time as prime minister is the legal supremacy of the individual, as articulated in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We are seeing this played out with greater force than ever today, by an activist high court that swatted aside Stephen Harper’s attempts to restrain it, and now orders a meek, politically correct Justin Trudeau government to do its bidding. The Federal Court decreed last week that people have the right to grow their own “medical” marijuana. This ruling is unlikely to be appealed, given that Trudeau the Younger is committed to legaliz-

ing marijuana for everyone. There are conditions that show measurable relief from marijuana products, such as glaucoma or the nausea and loss of appetite associated with cancer treatments. But much of the so-called medical marijuana industry is based on unsubstantiated claims about an inconsistent herbal remedy that hasn’t been studied much because it’s been illegal. The Federal Court case involves four people from B.C., which boasts more than half of the contested medical marijuana growing licences issued across the country. One of the petitioners suffers from a vaguely defined condition known as “chronic fatigue syndrome,” which led to a disability pension from a federal civil service job at age 45. The judge cited no research to support the claim that sitting around smoking dope all day re-

lieves this condition. Indeed it defies common sense that a set of symptoms with no identified cause, which might be confused with what we used to call laziness, would be alleviated by chronic consumption of a drug that promotes eating chips and watching TV. But we peasants aren’t supposed to question our monarchs, especially those in erminetrimmed red robes at the Supreme Court of Canada. That court has decreed that our charter, which in Section 7 protects the “right to life, liberty and security of the person,” includes a right to have a doctor’s help to commit suicide. Euthanasia has been re-branded as “assisted dying” by all the most “progressive” countries, and Canada has been given a firm deadline to join the club. (Meanwhile, the term “right to

life” is all but banned from university campuses, to minimize the risk of a coarse literal interpretation that it means, you know, a right to life.) A Liberal-dominated committee of MPs and senators has recommended full-throttle implementation, not restricted to terminal illness and including mental conditions such as depression and dementia. The majority suggested even “mature minors” should have this new right. The politicians support allowing doctors to opt out of cases they won’t condone, as long as they provide a referral to another doctor. In Belgium, one of the pioneers of this brave new world, most of the growing number of euthanasia patients have had cancer. But as The New Yorker  magazine reported in a ground-breaking article last summer, others have been euthanized because of autism, anorexia,

Health Minister Terry Lake expressed the hope that Canada ends up with a consistent policy on doctor-assisted suicide, rather than a provincial patchwork. The closest Lake came to politically incorrect criticism was to caution that “deep discussion” is needed around the court’s notion of a “competent minor,” someone not yet entrusted with the vote or access to a liquor store. Three dissenting Conservative MPs went so far as to say the recommendations don’t adequately protect seniors who might be coerced into checking out and passing on their estates. How old-fashioned.

Letters Flooding ditches a concern Just south of Flood Hope Road, just a few hundred yards from the Fraser River, the Trans Mountain pipeline runs in a ditch that has not been properly excavated, and de-bushed, for decades this whole area is a flood plain. Here the pipe will inevitably be broken, during the emergency highway repairs when the culverts for this ditch (grown over, see above) stop working and flood this the Trans Canada highway, the major artery into Vancouver for thousands of semi trucks and passenger vehicles, every day. A shut-down of this highway for even a few hours is a huge economic event. In the distance is

the site of a rockfall onto the pipeline just after construction, 62 years ago (Wilson reference). This will also soon happen again. The Trans Mountain pipeline should have been re-routed around this ditch location, long ago. Kinder Morgan should now be required to do so, by the National Energy Board, during the summer season. Waiting for a winter heavy rain "perfect storm" catastrophe, is not responsible Federal regulation. I shake my head every time I go past this spot, which is dozens of times every year. Every ditch in B.C., except this one, is swamped out on a regular basis David Ellis

Borrow and spend, an irresponsible method The current Federal Liberal Governments plan of borrow and spend is not only fiscally irresponsible, it's future damage to Canada's economy may prove to be insurmountable. The fact is, that our current debt of approximately $700 billion, is now costing the Canadian Taxpayer about $34 billion per year in interest payments alone. That $34 billion, would be more than enough to stimulate Canada's economy, and thrust us far and beyond any other country’s economy in the world.   Instead, because of past Governments, including the Liberals,   irresponsible spending, and lack of forward economic creativity, we are now approaching an area

of possible economic failure. Liberal economists preach about stimulating the economy, on the pretext of infrastructure spending, all be it with borrowed money, because interest rates are low. Well, interest rates have already begun to rise south of the border, so you know, we are not far behind here. This just goes to show how they lack any creative financial concept, or foresight, whatsoever.   They are constantly harping how the low cost of energy exports, have depleted their coffers.   At the same time, challenging themselves to lower our carbon footprint to avoid a climate catastrophe. They do this, while

at the same time, financial experts, and climate scientists, are telling us that the greatest economic opportunity the world will ever see lies in the conversion to clean and renewable energy systems. Obviously, their loyalty to the fossil fuel industry is their primary concern. They are still talking about getting fossil fuels to tide water, even though, it would cost them more to do so, compared to its worth.   They are still talking about building LNG Plants, even though Asia, their target market, can buy it cheaper from Russia, than we can even get it out of the ground for. This Governments pathetic agenda is only placing us on the edge of an economic

abyss. Now is the time to start converting in a serious way.   All the technologies exist, for Canada to become an innovated and economic world leader.   Solar, wind, geothermal, and save our fossil fuel for manufacturing components. Instead of selling off our raw resources, we should be processing and manufacturing them right here in Canada, making them value added, instead of exporting out all of our jobs. It just goes to show how little talent our politicians have, and how corrupt they have seemed to become, as their loyalties lie mainly with multinational corporations.   It seems that their main concerns are for themselves, and get-

Hope Performing Arts Community Theatre (Hope Pact) is pleased to announce that Burlesque class is on Tuesday's at 6 p.m. Burlesque traditionally features provocative humour, slapstick comedy, outlandish songs, and scantily clad females. The group is currently working on a black and white dance, using visual effects, and a titillating chair dance. “Rather than do the expected striptease numbers associated with Burlesque, we go back to the time when ankles were a suggestive body part,” said Hope Pact director and teacher Cheryl-Lynne Lacey. The Burlesque class features music from the 2010 movie ‘Burlesque’ starring Cher, an eclectic mix of country and western, Crocodile Rock and Uptown Funk. Geared toward humour, the booty shaking, bold and uninhib-

Fishing derby benefits ecosystem The Lions Club is pleased to announce the arrival of the annual Cultus Lake Pikeminnow Fishing Derby on June 18, 2016. Club branches in Deroche, Harrison Mills, Lillooet, Chilliwack and Hope will be hosting the traditional event. The event was previously organized by the Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Strategy (CLASS) team. "They were having a hard time with volunteers so the Lions Clubs in the local zone decided to help out and make the event a zone project," Scott Medlock, Hope Lions Club president told The Hope Standard. The Pikeminnow is an invasive species that feeds on the eggs of salmon. The Derby is held on the Saturday before Father's Day because that weekend allows for free fishing with no license required. Thousands of fish are caught and eliminated from the lake during the event, helping with the local eco system and the lifecycle of the spawning salmon.

Avid young fishermen cast their lines into Cultus Lake, hoping to catch a big one, while helping the ecosystem in the water.

Youth, sight, eradicating hunger, poverty and the environment are four initiatives currently being addressed by the organization. “This fishing derby fits well with the environmental initiative that Lions international is promoting around the world — we look forward to working with class members

who have hosted this fishing derby in the past,” said Medlock. "For those fishers who have participated in this derby in past years, we hope you will be back this year.” Pre registration for the event will take place at Hope Outdoors. More details will be released as the event nears and any informa-

tion can be obtained by calling Scott Medlock at 604-750-8648. Lions International will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2017, the milestone event will commemorate the service the club has provided over the years, while looking ahead to the undertaking of more projects in its separate communities.

Organized Avalanche Response team Hope Sear and Rescue (HSAR) members recently went to Manning Park to embark on snowshoe training. “This is part of our search team commitment and some members use this training as preparation for their three day Organized Avalanche Response Team Member training course, which will be undertaken this weekend at Mount Seymour,” said HSAR manager Mario Levesque. The course provides partici-

pants with the skills necessary to safely respond to avalanche incidents as part of an interagency team in potentially unstable terrain. This blended course is delivered via online introductory modules followed by a face to face classroom and field portion. The focus of the course is on organized avalanche search and rescue techniques such as wanding, probing, searching and shovelling. The course also touches on

aspects of higher Incident Command System (ICS) functions in Organized Avalanche Response (OAR) operations, group safety measures, specialized equipment used in avalanche response and on post-rescue duties. The course is intended for SAR volunteers who will respond in potentially unstable terrain. To learn more about this event, please contact Mario at hopesarbase@hopesar.ca, or 604-869-7214

Savings grants expanded to include more eligible children The province of B.C. extends $1,200 in funds to 40,000 new individuals The provincial government expanded the B.C. Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG) to include children born in 2006 and in the process extend the $1,200 education grant to 40,000 more eligible British Columbian kids.  Previously, the grant was only available for children born in 2007 or later. Families saving for their eligible children’s post-

secondary education now have access to an additional $1,200. “It can be hard for parents to start saving for their children’s university education, but it’s so critical to begin saving as early as possible—and make it routine,” says Kay Gandham, branch manager, Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union. “This grant is a great way

for parents to jumpstart that crucial savings behaviour.” While the BCTESG is a one-time grant of $1,200, there is a limited window for the application.  “Parents need to be aware there is only three years to apply from the day their child turns six,” says Gandham. “The child also needs to be a beneficiary of a regis-

tered education savings plan to be eligible. A financial expert can help make sense of RESP options available and get it set up fairly quickly.” As the BCETSG was introduced last year, Gandham recommends parents get more information about the application process and eligibility on the government’s website at http://www.gov.bc.ca/BCTESG.

“I feel strongly that by listening to people, we are making better project decisions.” - Lexa Hobenshield, External Relations Manager, Kinder Morgan Canada

For more than four years, we’ve worked together with our neighbours and local communities to hear what they have to say about our proposed pipeline expansion. By listening closely and having an open dialogue, we’ve been able to create a stronger, safer and more responsive project. We are working to meet all the requirements of the regulators, as well as consulting with communities, Indigenous people, government agencies and municipalities – and we’ll continue to work with them throughout development, construction and operations. We know how critical it is to get this right. Most importantly, we’re acting on what we hear with significant changes to the Project.

How feedback has resulted in a stronger, safer and better project: • • • • • • •

A $100 million investment in the West Coast Marine Response Corporation (WCMRC) for marine safety enhancements. A commitment to offset any greenhouse gas emissions resulting from construction. An increase in safety valves along the pipeline from 94 to 126. An increase in pipeline wall thickness in sensitive areas, such as urban locations and at river crossings. Routing of the pipeline to avoid 22 crossings at fish-inhabited rivers including the Fraser, upper North Thompson, Albreda, Coldwater and Coquihalla. Routing to avoid environmentally sensitive areas, such as Cheam Wetlands and three BC Class A parks. Routing of the pipeline to minimize community impacts to the Westsyde neighbourhood in Kamloops and the Westridge neighbourhood in Burnaby.

Early childhood centre opens Seabird Island Band's Early Childhood Centre of Excellence (ECCE) is officially open. The Centre, which will host a majority of Seabird Island's Early Childhood Programs, recently held its official grand opening. It will serve neighbouring communities in and around the Hope area including the Shxw' owhàmel band. “This building, I think for everybody, represents a new day – a fresh, new day that represents our future,” said Carolyne Neufeld, Seabird Island Band’s Director of Health and Social Development. “We create programs and opportunities for our young people, and they rise, because we helped them rise. Today is a happy day, it's a celebration.” The Early Childhood Centre of Excellence building was a dream for more than 10 years, but there was no ability to go after the necessary capital funding. When that opportunity came a couple of years ago, the Seabird Island Band Health & Social Development Department got its proposal ready and was eventually

successful in receiving the necessary funding to move forward. “It’s such a wonderful feeling to move into a building where not only our children will be playing and have this as a resource, and all of the services it will provide and the opportunities for the kids to grow—but also that we’re moving in with a largely First Nations staff, which is a huge accomplishment,” said Neufeld. “I think from that, we will now be able to look at stronger ways to support cultural

practices. We see it (in conjunction) with wanting the resurgence of our language. I think our creativity will blossom here.” The Early Childhood Centre of Excellence gives Seabird the opportunity to double child care seating— one of the conditions of building the Centre. As for amenities, the ECCE building will be very interactive. It has a climbing wall which folds up against the wall when not in use, a SMART board, a full kitchen, offices for staff, meet-

ing rooms, and vast play areas with all the games and toys necessary to allow staff to fully engage children. “We have all of our programs in one spot now, so it’s a onestop shop for parents. If they need speech, we’ve got a special room where they can have quiet time, if they need supported child care, if they need extra support, it’s all done in one building,” said Carlene Brown, Seabird Island Band’s Early Childhood Program Manager.”

Read Right Society is bringing financial literacy to Hope through the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada’s (FCAC) Financial Basics Workshop. Financial Literacy is having the “knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions (FCAC).” “People often think financial literacy is knowing how to set up Tax Free Savings Accounts, GICs and Mutual Funds, but it is much more than that,” said Jodi McBride, Read Right Society’s Executive Director. “It’s knowing how to manage your money regardless of what your income is; It’s knowing the difference between needs and wants and how to budget your life, from rent to buying a latte or groceries. It’s knowing how to create realistic financial goals and achieve them.” The eight-week series includes: budgeting, financial planning, saving and investing, credit and debt management, cost of living, needs versus wants and protecting your finances and identity. Participants will receive a student workbook and be guided through practical exercises to understand how money works and how to set and work toward goals. In 2015, Statistics Canada said the debt-to-income ratio of Canadian households was 163.3 per cent, meaning for every dollar Canadians earn, they owe $1.63 in debt. In the Fraser Cascade Region, which includes Hope, 49.7 per cent of residents spend 30 per cent or more of their income on their rent or mortgage and the average family income is just over $57,000.00 (BC Stats 2012). “These numbers tell a story of the financial situation in Hope and area, and the importance of having

Hatha yoga's earliest known beginnings date back to the eighth century. The word “Hatha” comes from “Ha” which means sun, and “Tha” which means moon. Chair yoga is an option for people that want to try a more gentle approach and might be struggling

with limited mobility, strength, flexibility or injury. Age can be a factor, sedentary lifestyle, or unused muscles are all reasons for utilizing the enhanced benefits of a chair. This type of yoga can be a starting off point for people until they've achieved more knowledge about the practice, strength and flexibility.

Yoga, the word invokes images of sleek bodies in varying poses, yoga mats, and of course a yogi encouraging balance, and promoting flexibility. Traditional yoga involves the mind and the ability to use the body as a tool to create improved health, emotional well-being, and enhanced clarity. There is an adaptive method that allows people who are just starting out, or have limited mobility to access the benefits of yoga, using a more gentle approach. Chair yoga. What is that, one might ask? This adaptive method has been around for quite some time, and offers an alternative and unique style of yoga that uses a chair instead of a yoga mat.

diabetes, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, or scoliosis to name a few. Chair yoga addresses issues and habitual patterns such as poor posture, tight muscles, crunched neck, wrist issues (carpel tunnel), disc injuries, osteopenia (low bone mass), obesity, and lung disease. By creating new muscle memory the student can shed bad habits, while instilling new ones, and relieving symptoms of old injuries. “Chair yoga has been a popular class among residents of Hope and those in the surrounding areas for many years,” said Arbuckle. "The Recreation Centre has been fortunate to have had some great instructors who have led this class and contributed to its long standing success." Yoga posturing allows for a greater blood flow to the body, and with implementation of breathing exercises, helps create a greater sense of overall well-being. “Chair yoga is typically well attended by the senior population, however, people of all ages can benefit from this class,” said Arbuckle. “This class can be a great option for those who are just getting back to the gym or starting a new fitness plan after a period away.” Monica Cummins, the Recreation Centre's present chair yoga instructor, brings a variety of experience to the class as a registered yoga teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. "I enjoy teaching chair yoga, as I feel the benefits of yoga as a technique to optimize health on all levels, should be available to anyone and everyone, regardless of age, fitness level, or injuries. The greatest feeling is when you see improvement in a student's mobility, stress level,  or mindset," she said.

Sports Little champions light up the Kindergarten Winter Olympics Barry Stewart Hope Standard

PHOTOS BY BARRY STEWART

Coquihalla Elementary’s kindergarten students had their own version of the Winter Olympics last Friday as they completed relay races that simulated Olympics events. Top: After Ms. Williams yelled “Go!” Christina Taylor and Preston McLean took off on their skeleton sleds. Bottom left: Mariela Martinez (left) and Joelle Kim demonstrate how to ‘ice dance’ under the direction of Ms. Williams. Bottom right: Brynn Dougall proudly receives her gold medal, while Logan Francis waits his turn.

we would be doing the real thing — but I got a picture of her doing it and she was smiling. The kindie version of the skeleton race was kids lying on their tummies on four-wheeled scooter boards, powering themselves down to the end wall and back.

The ‘bobsled race’ used the same scooters but one child sat while the other pushed. At the end wall, they switched roles. Other events included the biathlon, where students slid their feet on bean bags, simulating cross-country skiing, then ‘shot’ the

bean bags at the end wall before running back. There was also a hockey relay and ice dance relay, including twirls and jumps with a partner. No standings were taken and every child got a medal at the closing ceremony, followed by the singing

of O Canada. “You could see the smiles on the kids’ faces when the parents came over to sing the anthem,” said Williams. “They felt so successful. This was their first chance to do relays and they did so well. “The support we get from the families is

awesome,” she added. “They were so willing to help with the teams and cleaning up.” Williams may drop by to watch the event next year — but she won’t be organizing it. “I’m retiring, so I’ve given all the paper work to Adrienne,” said Williams. “I’ve taught since

1975 — some part-time for maternity — but I always taught, every year.” Williams started her career in Fort Nelson, followed by 41 years of service at Silver Creek and Coquihalla elementary schools. “This is my fortyfifth year,” she said. “It’s been a great ride!”

Coquihalla teachers Teresa Williams and Adrienne Robinson held their annual kindergarten Winter Olympics last Friday — without any snow or ice. The event was started in 2010, when Vancouver hosted the Winter Olympics. Kids marched into the gym, led by torch relay runners with their uniforms and (unlit) torches: Hans Jeschek, Kate Zabel and myself, followed by flag bearers. The miniOlympians then lined up in teams for relay races that simulated real events, while parents and grandparents cheered them on. As in past years, Williams prepared her students by showing them a video of actual races. “The kids were so excited, the week before, counting ‘how many sleeps before Sports Day,” said Williams. Well… most of the kids were excited. At least one of them was very worried. “One girl didn’t want to go in the skeleton race,” said Williams, laughing. “She thought
