Little boy honoured by Hope McDonald’s Erin Knutson Hope Standard

Tragedy struck the District of Hope last year when Jorin Clay Dann-Mills, aged 8, was hit by a commercial truck on Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015. A memorial of toys, gifts and flowers was erected near the site of the accident on sixth Avenue, accompanied by an outpouring of support from the community. A candle lit vigil was held on the night of his passing. Ongoing prayers by friends, family and the community continue for the loss of Jorin Clay, as donations to Vancouver's Children's Hospital continue to be made on his behalf. Parts of the memorial are still visible, but the memory of the be-

loved boy has not faded with the passing of the months and the advent of a new year. With the winter months coming to an end, and spring on the horizon, a new chapter has begun for the family of Jorin Clay. The Hope Standard received an invitation to attend a special occasion to commemorate the boy on Monday, Mar. 7. The Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver, dedicated a room in their house to honour Jorin Clay. Room number 312 (The Great Bear Rain Forest Room) was dedicated to Jorin Clay, with an inscription that reads “Great Bear Rain Forest, adopted by McDonald's restaurants of Hope, remembering Jorin Clay Dann-Mills.” A tour and presentation of the

House was made to family, friends, and members of the community of Hope to remember the boy, and to show the dedication to his family for the first time. In attendance for the tour was Jorin's dad, Dann Mills and Natalie Lewis, as well as Jorin's little sister Rosie. The Ronald McDonald House provides housing for seriously ill children and their families, when they have no choice but to travel to Vancouver for treatment. The House was warm and inviting, as the group was shown around the 73 bedroom House, which is located on the grounds of BC Children's Hospital. This was followed by a delicious dinner served in their impressive group kitchen. Little sister Rosie got to partake in

some of the fun, with the vast amenities for children on site. The House in Vancouver recently opened in 2014, and has served over 2,500 families with their spacious suites. The immediate family was moved by the gesture, as they shared the touching moment with guests. "The Dann and Mills family express their sincere gratitude to Stephen Au-Yeung of Hope McDonalds for the donation to the Ronald McDonald House in memory of Jorin Clay Dann-Mills. The family would also like to thank Dr. Derman, Fraser Canyon Hospital staff, Ambulance Paramedics, Constable Lewis, Martin Brothers Funeral Home and many others for the care and support provided during this difficult time."

New arrival sets the stage for Brigade Days, 2016 Erin Knutson Hope Standard

The Brigade Days Committee has some exciting news for the District of Hope. The annual event has been a staple in the community, ever since its advent in 1967, when a service station owner deemed that locals should commemorate the end of a successful summer season with a celebratory weekend event. Held traditionally on the weekend after Labour Day, Brigade Days has been a memorable event that boasts a parade, demolition derby, live music, Boondock Bike Jam, Hope Hustle, ball hockey, and twopitch tournaments. The year of 2016, is looking bright with the arrival of a new prospect that promises to make an impression in September. In the past couple of weeks, the Committee has received the news that West Coast Amusements Ltd (a carnival ride company) has

We came up with a number and they were happy, so we start-

ed a one year contract,” said Smith. A couple of new features for Sunday's motor sport line-up of 2016, include, Endurocross (a mini version of motocross,) and an appearance by the Hope Motors Sports Group, alongside the standard Demolition Derby and 4 X 4 races. “It's going to be a packed full day,” said Smith.

A former ministerial assistant to Transportation Minister Todd Stone has been charged with two offences under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act for his role in a complaint about deleted government emails. A special prosecutor approved two charges against George Gretes for "willfully making false statements to mislead, or attempt to mislead" the Information and Privacy Commissioner. Commissioner Elizabeth Denham referred the case to police after Gretes testified in her investigation that he didn't delete a series of emails from a subordinate's computer during a search in response to a freedom of information request. Gretes resigned in October 2015 when Denham released her report on the 2014 incident, which found that Gretes had used another employee's computer to "triple delete" a series of

emails. Stone has maintained that the deleted emails were not the official records dealing with community meetings about improving travel options along Highway 16 in northern B.C., which was the subject of the request. The ministry has since released hundreds of pages of records about the project. The incident prompted Premier Christy Clark to order all political staff in the government to keep all emails as the procedure for handling electronic communications is updated. Former privacy commissioner David Loukidelis reviewed the case and recommended that non-partisan public servants should decide what records should be kept and what can be destroyed as duplicate or transitory messages. Loukidelis warned that with hundreds of millions of emails sent and received each year, trying to evaluate every message would cause the B.C. government to "grind to a halt."

If you have ever visited some Asian countries, you may ¿nd you have to squat to use the bathroom facilities. It’s an uncomfortable way to have a bowel movement but ironically it provides a clearer exit pathway and the muscles are more relaxed. There is a special device on the market that raises your feet as you sit on a normal toilet. It’s supposed to be the same as squatting.

ERIN KNUTSON / THE STANDARD

Bonnie Millward in her office at HSS. Millward is an aboriginal mentor at the high school, and a community prevention worker in Boston Bar. She helps students gain the tools and knowledge for successful living.

Hope Standard

The first thing one notices about Bonnie Millward’s eyes is the kindness to them. She extends her hand to a stranger, someone from the outside, someone she’s never met, with the intent to share powerful insight about her passion and life’s work with children. There is a certain vulnerability about disclosing these things to anyone, but she does so gracefully. The Hope Standard takes a moment to look about her spacious office at HSS, which acts as a buffer to many children, from the immediacy of their lives. Bonnie holds two positions with the Hope & Area Transition Society (HATS,) and essentially they are the same role with two different titles. At HSS, Bonnie is an aboriginal mentor. Her role is a partnership between School District 78, Aboriginal Education Council (AEC,) and HATS. “I provide social and emotional support for the First Nations students at HSS,” she said. In Boston Bar, she works as a community prevention worker with students from Kindergarten to Grade 12, in partnership with HATS and The Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD.) This relationship extends to families as well, and can include siblings of students. She works closely with aboriginal children aged five to 18 on a daily basis, helping them to navigate the challenges of growing up in rural B.C. “The main thing is the one to one support I can provide for students — it’s strictly confidential, as long as they are old enough to consent on their own, they can come and see me and talk about whatever is going on for them,” she said. The air is charged with sadness as Bonnie mentions the recent suicide of a student in Boston Bar. “Any time there is a suicide, it impacts the entire community and Boston Bar is very small. A suicide impacts the community on so many levels and for such a long time — it’s the loss of a bright star, of a young person,” Bonnie told The Hope Standard. “It has a ripple effect and it stays with the other youth for a really long time. Part of my job is to make sure that it’s not just an ending, but that there’s another chapter and there’s something to be learned from it.” Bonnie is a First Nations member and can offer

students a familiar and comforting perspective, as she deals with incidents of tragedy or concern by opening her door to them, as she did for the community of Boston Bar when it was in need. Often working with ‘at risk’ youth, Bonnie, listed some of the criteria for a student to demonstrate warning signs, or red flags. “We look at a young person’s life and we start looking at risk factors, things like homelessness, poverty, health, access to resources, access to healthcare and mental health. These are considered risk factors.” It’s normal for a person that’s demonstrating one or two of these factors according to Bonnie, but when a youth presents five or six of these traits, she sees it as a warning. “When someone is showing these red flags, I try to build a relationship with them, that’s the first thing,” she said. “You start that way and then you can say, well you got suspended, do you want to tell me your side of things?” Bonnie’s programs work in a harm reduction type process that allows a sense of trust to be built up between the two, so she can effectively help when incidents do arise. “It’s all a process, it’s not all happening in one hour, it’s a journey.” Empowerment is a good first step, and Bonnie often asks her students to keep a journal for self reflection, or she will recommend books they can work through together. It all depends upon the student and what their strengths and weaknesses are. Bonnie has even had students write a letter in the middle of the night (provided they are up and can’t sleep,) and then show it to her so that she can respond in kind. Identifying emotions is one of the key components she aims to instill in her students as well as implementing a model known as the ‘Circle of Courage,’ which utilizes four quadrants. The model is based on the research of Dr. Martin Brokenleg (co-founder of the 'Circle of Courage.') The four quadrants utilized in the circle are mastery, generosity, belonging and independence. “We created a whole program called the ‘Culture of Courage’ based on the 'Circle of Courage,' and we use it on our report cards and we use it in our everyday programming,” said Bonnie.

Invasives uprooted This is the time of year when the days get longer and the sun is higher that gardeners start to get excited. You say you are not a gardener? All of mankind has custody of the environmental garden. It is a big responsibility indeed, but we can start with our surrounding area. Carry a bag when out walking or hiking and pick up garbage. A clean landscape appeals to most everyone. Garbage in the waterways is hard to retrieve, but an attempt should be made. Dumping green waste and grass clippings in the bush makes for an unpleasant sight and odour and should be reported, especially if the “dumper” is known. Throwing spent hanging baskets in the bush has resulted in English ivy and lamium to run wild. Where they go, nothing grows! When ivy plants climb trees they compete for water, nutrients and sunlight causing a weaker tree, therefore more prone to disease and branch dieback. The added moisture around the bark as the vine grows up the tree may accelerate rot. If ivy is seen getting started on areas where it is not wanted, pull the vine up and dig all the root. Lamium, also known as yellow archangel, aluminum plant, golden dead nettle is a trailing,

evergreen, perennial groundcover with square stems and is a very invasive noxious weed. In Britain if a single stalk is found on a property or a neighbour’s, the property value drops and makes it nearly impossible to sell, mortgage or insure. What can we do when we find it? Report it to a by-law or conservation officer, a district office and the Invasive Species Council of B.C. The Ministry of Transportation Department has many sites in the Lower Mainland that will be treated in the near future, but it is a 3-5 year attack. What can we do as private property owners to protect our environment? Remove weeds by digging or spot treating with vinegar. The product “weed and feed” for the lawn is no longer acceptable or safe especially for the waterways. Find a natural product online to make at home or purchase to destroy or repel unwanted garden pests. Buy a composter to compost kitchen and garden waste to add to garden soil.

Welcome to B.C., freeloaders B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher As the B.C. government spends millions on an international brand campaign with the recycled slogan “Super, Natural B.C.,” another brand identity has spread across Canada. This one’s unintentional. It hit a new peak last week with the arrival of two young men from Saskatchewan, who were  given one-way tickets to Vancouver and Victoria by typically burdened social services ministry staff in North Battleford. Sorting through the blizzard of soothing sound bites and sympathetic TV clips, a clearer picture emerges. In his initial interview with the

Saskatoon Star-Phoenix, Charles Neil-Curly, at 23 the elder of the two, said he decided to head west when shelter staff told him his time had run out and he asked for bus tickets to B.C. “When they asked if I had a place to go, I just said, ‘yeah’,” NeilCurly said. “I was going to the next homeless shelter anyway.” Transients and panhandlers aren’t the only ones who say whatever they figure will get them through another day. Politicians do it too. Admitting she knew little about the arrivals, Premier Christy Clark suggested that both were mentally ill and deserve every support the province can give them. B.C. housing czar Rich Coleman has also demonstrated factual flexibility as he presides over the creation of his latest singleroom-occupancy drug ghetto in a residential neighbourhood in

Victoria. After quietly proposing a closeddown nursing home called Mount Edwards Court as a temporary solution to the filthy “tent city” that sprang up on provincial property last fall, Coleman abruptly announced from his Langley office Feb. 5 that the building had been bought and partly renovated for $4 million. It would house 38 people for up to a year. I asked him if the purchase meant the conversion of Mount Edwards into permanent “lowbarrier” housing for 100 people was a “done deal,” as area residents believe. “They’re wrong,” Coleman indignantly replied, and there would be community consultation over the next year. In subsequent comments to reporters, he said the province doesn’t really need city zoning, but will apply for it anyway. (That won’t be a problem with Victoria’s

far-left city council, which is keen to add a supervised injection site too.) On Feb. 24, Coleman was asked if he is concerned that the 88 housing units at two locations would fill up and other transients would arrive to take their place. By that time the tent squat appeared to have about 100 people in residence, with the usual overdoses, violence and prostitution. Coleman assured us it hasn’t happened in Abbotsford or Maple Ridge, where tent camps have finally been cleaned up after shelters and housing were provided. The next day, he was asked if transitional accommodations would be sufficient to end the camp. “They’re not actually all that transitional,” Coleman replied. “We’ll take Mount Edwards through a zoning process. We’ve got about 100 beds there. We’ve

The 38 Mount Edwards spaces are full, another 40 rooms and camping spaces at a former youth custody centre are almost full, and the province applies for a court order to clear the Victoria camp. A representative of the advocacy group Together Against Poverty Society goes on local radio to pledge legal support for the campers. How many are there now? At least 100, he says. Meanwhile in Maple Ridge, where the “homeless” problem is all fixed, Coleman has just extended temporary shelter funding and paid $5.5 million for a 61-room motel to fix it some more.

Over the next three years the RFCPP will provide $28 million across the country to support habitat restoration projects led by recreational fishing and angling groups; conservation organizations; and Indigenous groups. “The program has been wildly successful in encouraging the completion of habitat restoration projects across the country including significant investments in our own local waterways,” said Strahl. As part of the National Conservation Plan, the RFCPP was created in 2013 by the Conservative Government to restore Canada’s

recreational fisheries habitat and support the sustainability and ongoing productivity of recreational fisheries. An example of a past local project includes: partnering with Ducks Unlimited to provide up to $144,000 to rebuild the Cheam Lake Water Control to restore access to Cheam Lake and upstream habitat for spawning coho and cutthroat trout. Applications for funding for this latest round of the program are being accepted by Fisheries and Oceans from March 11 to April 22, 2016. For additional program information, as well as the application form and guidelines, please visit: Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program Web Site.

Local students will get some help exploring their options for high-tech and trades training thanks to $25,000 from the Province of B.C. to launch the Shoulder Tappers program in Fraser Cascade School District. The Shoulder Tappers program enlists career co-ordinators or recruitment specialists who work closely with students to help them connect closely with trades and technical training – as well as gain valuable on-the-job experience.   “B.C. needs more skilled workers and through programs like this, we are able to connect students with employers and access training programs that may interest them,” ChilliwackHope MLA Laurie Throness said.

Coordinators help mentor elementary and secondary school students and facilitate student access to technical, academic, and vocational courses in industries as diverse as aircraft engineering, heavy-duty mechanics, information technology, and early childhood education. The coordinators also work closely with employers, the Industry Training Authority and the CES Career Education Society to connect students with opportunities.   In December, the Province announced a similar program for 15 districts in northern B.C. in partnership with Northern Development Initiative Trust. Funding support from Northern Development allowed the

Ministry of Education to extend the program to more districts this year. The Province launched B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint in April 2014 to re-engineer education and training so British Columbians are first in line for careers of tomorrow. The Shoulder Tappers initiative helps government meet this goal. Over the next three years, a new K-12 curriculum is being slowly phased in with new standards in mathematics, sciences, and applied design, skills and technology. It supports opportunities for students to develop the problem-solving and creative thinking skills they need for success in B.C`s tech sector.

Community Euthanasia legislation must protect the most vulnerable in society Mark Strahl, MP Special to The Standard

One year ago last month, the Supreme Court of Canada’s landmark Carter decision declared existing laws against assisted suicide unconstitutional. While the Court’s decision legalizes assisted suicide, Parliament has been given a role to play in legislating limits, conditions and safeguards on the practise of assisted suicide, within terms set by the Court. When I bring up the issue of assisted suicide with my constituents, many are unaware that the law is changing and are alarmed that such a major change to Canadian society could have advanced so far without a comprehensive national conversation on the issue. People are often surprised to learn that the Court did not reserve assisted suicide for those who are suffering from a terminal illness, but have instead opened the door to allowing individuals with a “grievous and irremediable medical condition” experiencing “intolerable suffering” to access it. This has been described as the most permissive and least restrictive criteria for assisted suicide in the world. The Council of Canadians with Disabilities and the Canadian Association of Community Living has produced an excellent commentary on the Court’s decision, warning that persons with disabilities, including people with serious mental and emotional disabilities, have been put at serious risk. They have also provided sobering statistics. “In Belgium, the number of Assisted Suicide deaths has increased an average of 47.77 per cent annually since 2003, and in the Netherlands it has increased 64.13 per cent since 1995, with no end in sight to this increase.” They have called on Parliament to “place crucial safeguards on the Court’s judgement to limit access to assisted suicide.” Unfortunately, a recently released Joint Parliamentary Committee Report on assisted suicide has gone the other way, suggesting that doctor-assisted suicide should even be made available to minor children and those struggling with mental illnesses. As a result, Conservative members on the committee have filed a dissenting report recommending stronger protections for the vulnerable.

While I have heard from hundreds of my constituents who oppose assisted suicide, I know that there are others who support the concept in principle and in certain

circumstances. Having watched a number of family members and friends ranging in age from 13 to 85 die from cancer over the last few years, I understand the

desire to ease the suffering of those we love, as much as possible. I believe that instead of embracing euthanasia as the only solution, the federal government

should be doing more, in concert with the provinces, to promote and expand comprehensive palliative care services right across the country. We also need to continue

the national conversation about improving our mental health system of care, which is currently failing too many Canadians. Rona Ambrose has promised Conservative

MPs a free vote on the government’s legislation and I hope that all party leaders will follow suit. This issue is a matter of conscience for me and for many Canadians.

The meaning of

Good Friday Hope Cross Walk Good Friday is a Christian holiday that is celebrated every year on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday. Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary, the location outside of Jerusalem’s walls where the crucifixion took place. Though Good Friday is considered a holiday and is a legal holiday in many countries across the globe, the commemoration is not characterized by the festive atmosphere many holidays inspire. In fact, in the fourth century, the Apostolic Constitutions described Good Friday as a day of mourning and prayer. In addition, many Christians fast on Good Friday, eating only one full meal and two smaller meals that do not add up to a full meal. Christians believe that commemorating the death of Christ helps to remind them of the sacrifices that Christ made and the human sin that contributed to his death. The observance of Good Friday has existed for centuries. According to Catholic Online, the Catholic Church does not celebrate Mass on Good Friday, though church services held on Good Friday correspond to the divisions of a traditional Mass. These services include the Liturgy of the Word, during which the Passion of Jesus Christ is read; the intercessory prayers for all people, including non-Christians; the Veneration of the Cross, during which the crucifix is unveiled to the congregation; and the Holy Communion. During these services, the church organ and bells are silent.

Finance Not all insurance policies are created equal: It pays to explore Spring Break planning is in full swing in homes across B.C. as many families look to take advantage of the break by escaping to destination hot spots. Travel insurance probably appears somewhere on your to-do list. “Not all insurance policies provide the same level of coverage so it’s important to shop around and be sure you’re comparing apples to apples,” says Envision Insurance Manager Elaine Elson. According to Elson, there are five key areas to

focus on to ensure you’re purchasing adequate coverage for your upcoming trip: Explore pre-existing condition exclusions “It’s important to know how a pre-existing condition is defined and whether or not it’s excluded from the policy you’re purchasing,” says Elson. “Many people don’t realize that any medical condition you currently have, or have had, needs to be declared to your insurance broker to ensure you have the

appropriate coverage.” Find out how claims are paid “If there’s a claim is the insurance company going to be billed directly or are you expected to pay the expenses out of pocket and be reimbursed?” asks Elson. “Being reimbursed might sound OK in the interim but will you have access to the funds you’ll need in the case of an emergency?” Know what you’re covered for In addition to confirming the monetary amount you’re covered

for and the deductible amount, if applicable, it’s essential to understand what the coverage is for items such as dental coverage, emergency transportation and professional fees, continues Elson. These specific areas are often overlooked when comparing a variety of policies. Research plan types ahead “Paying attention to the variety of plan types available to you is an important factor, especially if you have more than one vacation planned,” says Elson. “If you’re planning mul-

tiple trips, you may be able to purchase a multi-trip policy to provide coverage for all trips planned for not much more than the cost of a single trip policy.” Ask about policy exclusions “Each policy is unique and so are the exclusions listed,” says Elson, “Do you plan on participating in any excursions or a high risk activity such as bungee jumping or scuba diving? If so, you’ll want to be sure these activities are covered under the policy you’re purchasing.”

“By accessing world markets for Canadian oil, we’ll enjoy increased tax dollars and years of employment.” - Deborah Cahill, President, Electrical Contractors Association of BC

Now more than ever, this project makes sense for Canada and British Columbia. It’s vital we receive the most from our natural resources at a time when our economy needs it most. The Trans Mountain Expansion Project will allow Canadian oil to be delivered to international markets and, as a result, Canada will earn approximately $3.7 billion more a year for our oil. By realizing full value, everyone will benefit. In addition, the expansion will create tens of thousands of jobs over the next 25 years.

There are certain challenges and cultural differences that First Nations students experience at school, and Bonnie tries to ease some of those burdens by educating teachers and peers on culture and tradition. Racism is still a factor for First Nations. First Nations people are living with residential school legacies, and research from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) has shown that it may take six to seven generations before grievances are fully healed. In the meantime, Bonnie offers advice, workshop style communication for classrooms, relationship building and conflict resolution. She helps students with applications for transcripts, college/ university applications, and Band funding for education to name a few. There are currently about 100 aboriginal students enrolled at HSS. “For the most part First Nations students are treated quite well by their peers, even staff will come to me and say, I don’t really understand what this person is saying and I

can try to be a bridge of understanding.” Since the advent of the program six years ago, drop out rates have decreased. When Bonnie started out in 2000, graduation rates were around 30 per cent, and now they’re up to 60 per cent. “Truancies are way down and there is participation in the classroom. My First

Nations students are participating in more extra curricular activities, whereas before they were grossly underrepresented on the sports teams.” Bonnie’s dedication to her students has seen many grads through the trying times of adolescence, while dealing with complicated issues such as relationships,

drugs and alcohol, poverty, homelessness, racism, and discrimination. “It’s so intensely rewarding — it’s very taxing some day’s of course, but being able to be a cheerleader for a young person and being able to see them walk across the stage when they graduate is very gratifying.”

News

Time has come for a First Nations Court in Sto-lo territory The idea of a First Nations Court in Sto:lo territory may be an idea whose time has come. "We have been looking at this for a very long time," said Grand Chief Doug Kelly, president of Sto:lo Tribal Council, and chair of the First Nations Health Council. The Sto:lo family court structure would be best presided over by a longstanding community leader, a provincial judge with Sto:lo roots. "The pitch for this particular idea was to bring Steven Point home," Grand Chief Kelly remembered this week. "What we meant is that to us, Steven is more than a judge, and more than a lawyer, he is a medicine person. He is a longstanding and respected leader, both culturally and spiritually. He is much more than a judge." The idea to select Point for a Sto:lo court was actually the brainchild of Grand Chief Clarence

Pennier, who put the idea out there while he was head of the STC, at least 10 or 11 years ago. Some provincial cabinet ministers who heard and supported the idea at the time included John Les and Wally Oppal, Kelly remembered. "It's nothing new," Kelly said. But there have been very recent discussions about it. The idea made headlines as several First Nations across B.C. have been pondering how to move forward with their own aboriginal court systems. There are four such First Nations Courts in B.C. at this point handling bail hearings and sentencing hearings, in North Vancouver, New Westminster, Kamloops and Duncan. They use and refer to "Gladue rights" which are special rights extended to aboriginals under the Criminal Code. The proceedings in First Nations courts are

open to those who identify as aboriginal. They employ an indigenous understanding of community and healing, as well as a restorative justice approach to sentencing. "It's a long time coming," said Tyrone McNeil, vice president of STC. "We have kids being apprehended from parents for relatively minor reasons, and this has a tremendous impact both on the children and parents." The emphasis has to be on rebuilding relationships and family units, and creating harmony. Who better to implement Gladue rights than a "qualified First Nations judge?" McNeil said. "We have been hearing concerns from our members and leaders, that some of our members were appearing in child welfare court, and standing in front of the judge all alone."

McNeil called that inappropriate, and under First Nations family court they could be represented in court by community advocates or band officials. "This would balance the playing field." The time is right to talk about Sto:lo family court, said Kelly. There have been "nothing but problems" with the current system, he said. "There are long delays, and it doesn't matter if it's an MCFD case or one from our delegated authority. The current system is not working for us." They've long sought the chance to flesh out this idea. The First Nations Health Council that Kelly leads, has signed an MOU with the B.C. government "to work together on social determinants of health," he noted. Certain cultural considerations would have to be taken into account.

Sports Mustangs off to an early start in the season Barry Stewart Hope Standard

BARRY STEWART/ THE STANDARD

Hope’s Kaylee Ward and a Sardis player chase down a ball in an exhibition game on Tuesday last week. The Mustangs played well but lost 4-0, said coach Jeremy Smith.

and Enderby. This will be Hope’s first soccer tournament since the men’s Fletcher Challenge Canadians hosted one in the early 1990s. As many as three games will be running at the same time, so the C.E. Barry field will be used and two pitches will be set up sideways on the HSS field. In other soccer news, the Valley Helicopterssponsored Valley Choppers closed out their ninth season in the Chilliwack Men’s Soccer League with a spirited

game against the leagueleading Young Guns, the perennial favourite to win the regular season and playoff title. HSS coach Smith played for the Young Guns a number of years ago but has been on the Choppers since 2012. The Young Guns had a glorious record of 18 wins, two ties and a loss in 21 games, with nine shutouts and only 14 goals against. That contrasted with the Choppers’ two wins and three ties and a single shutout. The thing is, the

Choppers had their worst games early in the season. Since the end of November, they only had a 2-0 and 4-0 loss. All the rest were wins, ties or one-goal losses. Could they keep it tight on Saturday night, against the Young Guns? Playing on their favourite field, the artificial turf at Chilliwack Senior Secondary, the Choppers started with intensity. League manager Justin Depodesta watched the game from the sidelines and said later, “You

guys had a very good game. In the first 25 minutes, you dominated possession. I was very impressed with the ball movement.” With keeper Kyle Kjemhus thwarting the early Young Guns challenges, captain Zane MacDonald gave the Choppers a 1-0 lead at about the 20-minute mark. Their opponents made it 1-1 soon after, though the Choppers had a handful of chances on a strong attack shortly before the break and were unlucky not to take

the lead. The Guns took advantage of two lapses in the early stages of the second half, making it 3-1 — but the Choppers got their tenacity back and Yvon McKay blasted a cross-goal shot to make it 3-2 in the late stages. If the game ended in a tie, it would go directly to a shoot-out, which could go either way. The Choppers threw themselves into the final minutes to get the tying goal but couldn’t quite pull it off. On paper, it should

have been the most lopsided game of the sudden-death playoffs. In fact, it was the most tightly-contested of all four games in the opening round. The Choppers will be retaining a core of players for next season but will be looking for new recruits over the summer. Yours truly will be stepping down as player-manager to focus more on reffing and the less-frantic pace of senior ball.

Hope Secondary’s Mustang girls have made an early start in their soccer training, getting ready for what should be a remarkable season. In late February, players travelled to 100 Mile House for a one-day indoor tournament against Williams Lake and 100 Mile teams. HSS players were split into two teams for games of 5-on-5. Coach Jeremy Smith said the girls struggled to score, though they also made it hard for their opponents to get past them. “Indoor soccer is usually high-scoring but after 50-minute games, we were only losing by scores of 5-1 or 4-2,” he said. Last week, they traveled to Chilliwack twice, for exhibition games against Sardis and Chilliwack Senior Secondary. Tuesday against Sardis, Smith said he was pleased with the effort in the girls’ 4-0 loss. “We played well, working better as a team and learning to be more patient with the ball. “Against Chilliwack Senior, we got splattered,” he said. “It was into double digits, I’m sure — but Amanda Lancaster scored on a free kick.” The bigger school plays in a higher league than Hope but Smith said Sardis will be fielding a B team that will play exhibition games against the single-A schools in Hope Secondary’s league. “We’ll have four home games and four away, starting in early April,” said Smith. The big news is what’s happening on April 8 and 9, when the girls will be hosting their inaugural tournament. Ten teams will be taking part, coming from as far away as Pemberton
