Sanborn to plead guilty

FIREHALL OPEN HOUSE ALL HANDS ON THE HOSE

Fraud and forgery charges separate from breach of trust BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack court heard Friday that former City of Chilliwack director of development Grant Sanborn intends to plead guilty at his next court appearance to one charge of fraud and one charge of using a forged document. The two charges are unrelated to the three breach of trust charges Sanborn faces after the multi-year investigation into development deals at city hall while

MLA John Les was mayor. After leaving city hall, Sanborn went into business as a development consultant under the business name H.G. Sanborn Associates. On Friday morning, the court heard Sanborn will enter a guilty plea to the two charges that relate to an incident with one of his clients, Chilliwack farmer Butch Goertzen. The one charge of fraud alleges that between Sept. 26, 2006 and May 18, 2007 Sanborn defrauded the Goertzens out of $1,763. The second charge is that on or about Feb. 20, 2007 Sanborn “did use or deal with a document letter dated Oct. 24, 2006 apparently from the provincial Agricultural Land Commission as if it were See SANBORN, page 33

‘Puppy mill’ label may trigger SPCA lawsuit But society stands by seizure of dogs

he owners of 14 dogs seized last week are fighting back against allegations that they operate a “puppy mill” even as the SPCA considers criminal charges. DJ English, who along with Mel Gerling operates Mountain View Kennels, says the SPCA seizure of her dogs on Sept. 24 was illegal. English said she and her partner have applied to have the dogs returned. A spokesperson for the SPCA,

meanwhile, says the organization continues to investigate the case. Mountain View Kennels had been located in Chilliwack until mid-August, when English said conflict with a threatening landowner forced them to move. While she and Gerling attempted to find a new home, English said the dogs were split between two kennels. Fourteen were sent to B&B Kennels. It was from that kennel (which they do not own, contrary to some reports) that the dogs were seized. English said that kennel’s operator did not provide the health care services for which Mountain View had paid. English said there were plans to move the dogs See PUPPY MILL, page 23

Upfront Briefly UFV career fair on Wednesday Staff at the University of the Fraser Valley’s Career Centre recognize how hard finding a job can be, and each year organize a career fair for students, alumni, and the community. “While it’s not a great economy, people are still hiring, but they are looking for just the right person,” says UFV career services coordinator So Jeon. “Some of the job-seeking tips that might have worked in a booming economy just don’t cut it now. There has been a shift in trends and it’s not the same job hunt anymore.” This year’s Career Fair takes place Wednesday, Oct. 6 at the Abbotsford campus’s Envision Athletic Centre. It runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and admission is free.

provincial government. But even if that is approved, he would have to apply to the city for either a rezoning or a temporary use permit. Both processes trigger a public consultation, according to city staff. Kurt Houlden, director of planning and strategic initiatives for the city said the city has not received any applications yet. In an interview with the Times, Kirkness said residents are making “a kneejerk reaction and don’t have all the facts.” He said concerns about traffic through Yarrow are misguided as his trucks will continue to go the other way through Vedder Crossing. He said concerns about noise

will be abated as he will use a “through-cut” to access the property, which will leave a berm of rock so nothing will be visible from the road. Kirkness said residents don’t need to be concerned as he will nearly eliminate any visual destruction, noise will be negligible and truck traffic will be the same as it is now. There will be less truck traffic on the Columbia Valley Highway Road and therefore less of a carbon footprint, according to the application. “I think it’s a great proposal,” Kirkness said. Another group concerned about the plan is the Vedder Mountain Trails Association (VMTA).VMTA members use

trails all over Vedder Mountain, mostly on the western side. However, there is one access trail on the old rail bed that would have to be blocked and public access would be eliminated. “What VMTA is proposing is to keep it open as it is currently: a public access trail for non-motorized recreation,” said VMTA president David Lock. “It is the only trail on the mountain that stays relatively snow-free all winter, so it is used extensively by especially the bicyclists.” But Kirkness said it simply is not true that the trail is used. “You can’t mountain bike on that thing,” he said. Lock disagrees. “You can walk it, ride it,” he said. “It is over four feet wide even where deactivated.”

Eco-fundraiser at Graham

T

he G.W. Graham middle-secondary school music department is taking a bite out of e-waste while raising money for trips to San Francisco and Idaho. The school has jumped on board with the Greentec Think Recycle program and is now collecting used printer catridges and old cell phones and digital cameras for cash. Every year in North America over 300 million print cartridges are consumed and more than 130 million cell phones retired, according to Greentec’s website, and the vast majority end up in landfills. Through Think Recycle, the cartridges and phones G.W. Graham collects will be recycled and refurbished by Greentec, an Ontario-based reverse logistics company. “O u r u s u a l f u n d r a i s ing activities are great,” said Janine Webster, music teacher at GW Graham, “but the Think Recycle program directly protects the environment. This way we can stop filling up our landfills with electronic waste and fundraise at the same time.” Webster has already tossed her old cell phone into the collection box and now calls on others to dig up theirs. Even if they aren’t pretty, the phones need to be work-

They should power up, have an undamaged LCD screen, make a test call and not be cracked or otherwise damaged. Print cartridges should also be in good shape. Besides cutting down on e-waste in landfills, for every 24 recyclable cartridges and cell phones G.W. Graham collects, Think Recycle will sponsor the planting of a tree on their behalf through American Forests or Tree

Canada Foundation. “With Think Recycle, not only are you helping GW Graham’s music eepartment raise money for instruments, scholarships, music festivals and tours but you get to directly protect the environment and do a good thing,” saysWebster. ! Phones, printer cartridges and cameras can be dropped off at G.W. Graham middlesecondary, 45955 Thomas Road, or in the Think Recycle container at the Save-On Foods in Sardis.

Looking for fair access to justice BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack Law Courts are nearly 4,000 kilometres from New York City’s Wall Street, the world’s financial system and the epicentre of 2008’s economic crisis. But the events that took place two years ago in New York have had a direct effect on the future of British Columbia’s legal aid system, according to Stephen McPhee, the president of the B.C. branch of the Canadian Bar Association. The Public Commission on Legal Aid will stop in Chilliwack on Oct. 12 to hear submissions from local residents and lawyers about how the legal aid system can be made better and more sustainable. The hearing will start at 10 a.m. at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel. According to McPhee, who chairs the commission’s steering committee, the need for the hearings became apparent following the aforementioned financial crisis. The Legal Aid Society that oversees the system is financed in part by

interest garnered on funds set aside by lawyers’ and notaries’ foundations. The financial crisis and the ensuing recession caused banks to lower interest rates, which in turn caused Legal Aid’s interest revenues to drop substantially. “While the government funding portion remained stable, that drop in funding created a drop in the resources available to LSS to fund the legal aid programs they were running,” said McPhee. “At the same time, they saw a spike in the demand for legal aid.” More people needed money for lawyers for the same reason that LSS had less money than ever: the bad economy. With legal aid unstable, and with the provincial government unable to finance a public commission on its own, the Canadian Bar Association picked up the slack and privately funded the travelling commission. The commission will take both written and in-person submissions from the public. McPhee says the government and Attorney General’s office has thrown

its support, if not its bucks, behind the commission as its need has become apparent. “I think a lot of people are asking why we haven’t done it sooner.” McPhee noted that Canada’s legal system is a public one, just like health care or education. However, the system’s funding has received much less attention. According to McPhee, the need for a public, well-funded and accessible legal system is just as important as health care. “We have one of the best justice systems in the world,” he said, “but it’s not acceptable if we have a great justice system if people who need access to the legal system can’t access it.” McPhee also noted that the commission and the need for stable funding,“is not about paying lawyers more money to represent criminals.” Rather, it’s about ensuring fair access to the legal system for everyone, from couples divorcing and bankrupt families to those involved in lawsuits. “This is not about money, this is about creating a better system,” he said.

News Rotating meetings nixed A motion to keep rotating school board meetings to different schools around the district was rejected by Chilliwack trustees last Tuesday. Trustee Heather Maahs tabled the motion despite having voted with fellow trustees to end the practice last spring. She said her change of heart was the result of conversations with parents and school staff. “We are elected by the

10051105

School briefs community to act on behalf of the community,” she said, “and the best way of doing that is to place ourselves directly in that community.” Trustees John Henry Harter and Louise Piper, however, argued not meeting at schools doesn’t pre-

vent trustees from visiting schools. Harter added trustees don’t get a sense of schools during evening meetings anyway. “If we want to see how a school works and see the kids and the teachers and the administrators in action it isn’t at 7 o’clock at night,” he said. The motion was defeated with only Maahs and trustee Martha Wiens voting in favour. The next school board

meeting is at 7 p.m. on Oct. 12 at the school district office. Safe driving earns rebate The Chilliwack school district has recouped a maximum 25 per cent rebate for safe driving two years in a row. This year, that put $32,635 back into school district coffers. In 2009, the sum was $31,586. The ICBC program is for fleets with more than 200 vehicles or for those that pay

$100,000 or more a year in insurance premiums. The district operates 103 vehicles and trailers and pays $126,344 in premiums a year. Without its safe driving discount, that number would be $217,835. “It speaks to the manner in which we manage our transportation fleet and our fleet of other vehicles in the maintenance department,” said secretary treasurer Ray Velestuk of the discount.

Name sought for new school The Chilliwack school district is striking a committee to find a name for the new Rosedale elementary-middle community traditional school. Trustee Doug McKay will represent the board of education, and other members will be picked from management staff and district partner groups like the Chilliwack Teachers Association, CUPE and the District Parent Advisory Council. The committee will field See SCHOOL, Page 33

◗ Opinion

Popular but dangerous law

I

t would appear there’s near unanimous approval and support for British Columbia’s new impaired driving laws. With the exception of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, I really haven’t come across much in the way of concern or critique regarding the new legislation. Even the opposition NDP, who normally throw a hissy fit at each and every move the government makes, is supportive. I wonder what the reaction from lawyers, academics and the NDP would have been if the government had found a way to do an end run around the search and seizure laws so police could confiscate pagers and cellphones from known drug dealers without laying criminal charges. Needless to say, they’d be howling bloody murder. But trampling on due process, the rule of law and people’s civil liberties is apparently quite acceptable—so long as we’re going after impaired drivers and impaired drivers only. I hope people understand this legislation represents the most draconian and intrusive government initiative in more than half a century. You would have to go back to the internment of Japanese Canadians and the confiscation of their property to find a law that was more an affront to natural justice than this one. Your rights, supposedly guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, are as of now, null and void, with respect to suspected impaired driving. The police no longer need to establish reasonable and probable grounds. On a whim,

JOHN MARTIN

Crime Matters a hunch, or a grudge, they can pull over whomever they please and needn’t worry about defending those actions in court. Essentially, they can now charge, convict and pass sentence on the spot. As Robert Holmes, president of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association so eloquently explained to me, you have more rights to contest a $10 parking ticket than you do to fight this new law. Supporters of the law are quick to point out that one may appeal a suspension to the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. This is an administrative review only and doesn’t allow one to question the breathalyzer analysis or cross examine the police officer. It is a smoke screen to create the illusion of fairness. In any event, the suspension will have been fully served by the time a ruling came down from this charade. This legislation was brought in because it is expensive and time consuming to prosecute impaired driving charges. There are numerous defence lawyers who specialize in this area and have a remarkable acquittal rate for their clients. Too many sloppy, incompetent and insufficiently trained police result in even more acquittals and charg-

es being dropped altogether. The new law essentially detours around the Criminal Code and imposes a penalty, which can amount to a lengthy suspension and thousands of dollars; basically the same punishment as a criminal conviction minus the criminal record. I always strive to be careful with hyperbole, but without a hint of exaggeration, this law has “police state” written all over it. Even if impaired driving is at unprecedented levels and no one, absolutely no one, is fit to drive after even just one drink, this law is way out of line. There is no other jurisdiction in North America that provides a scenario where police may act without any accordance for due process or the rule of law. If the .08 cutoff is too lenient, then demand that Ottawa change the law. If there are too many impaired drivers on the road, then hire more police and give them the required training so they can do their job properly and defend their actions in court. But to simply bypass the Criminal Code and give police absolute unlimited and unaccountable authority to run roughshod over people’s rights is outrageous. If we’re willing to hold our noses and extend due process to drug traffickers, sex offenders and murderers we should be able to give suspected impaired drivers their day in court as well. Anything less is disgraceful. ◗ John Martin is a criminologist at the University of the FraserValley. John.Martin@ufv.ca.

ohandas Ghandi, one of history’s greatest men of peace, famously said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Although Canada has legally forbidden animal cruelty since Confederation—marking it as a progressive nation at the time, by the standard Ghandi’s comment set a few decades later—progress has since been diminished by the static standards that continue to determine the nature of cruelty in this country. Serious, visible cruelty violations against dogs, cats and horses are only a hint at what many see as the real problem in Canada. Regulations governing housing and husbandry of farm animals here—and rules of harvest for wild species—are seen by many as archaic and regressive, and conditions that easily meet legal standards in this country would fail the litmus test for cruelty in other jurisdictions. It’s not a great stretch to suggest that the way chickens and pigs are routinely treated in their minimal, caged environments—or how they and other food animals are slaughtered—may have an impact on the way that other domestic species, used primarily as pets, can be mistreated. Legitimizing abuse of one animal certainly creates a social culture that more easily tolerates abuse of another. In recognition of Ghandi’s insightful reflections on people and the animals with which we share the planet, his birthday, Oct. 2, has been declared World Farm Animals Day, a day to raise awareness about the way animal welfare is often compromised as we industrialize agriculture in a quest to meet growing food demands for a growing world population. Oct. 2 has passed us by, but it is a day worth setting aside to reflect on how we stack up as one of the world’s truly progressive nations.

If raw milk is bad, is breast milk too? Editor: So does this mean that a woman who is breastfeeding her child also falls under this label of “hazardous material?” This is very disheartening how our country is falling apart, more rules, regulations, etc. I grew up on organic farming and we did very well, some of the best produce and milk/cream ever: traditional. It worked before in history with no rules and regulations and now we are regulated to the limits of complete and utter control. People need to stand up, and not take the BS that all these pigs at the feeding tank in government deliver to us. David Pohoreski Langley

thousands of women made presentations to their MPs across the country in support of the registry. Thirdly, Hodge says that the “NDP has doomed its future.” This is pure nonsense to the extreme, as this is a non-issue to 99 percent of the electorate. I know this as a fact, as I have been canvassing door-todoor for months with Gwen O’Mahony, our federal NDP candidate, and not one single person in Chilliwack has brought this up as an issue. Finally, if this registry is so unnecessary, why is it that police chiefs across Canada support it? Get your basic facts right Mr. Hodges and stop blatantly repeating the typical Conservative propaganda. Dick Harrington Hope

Hospital story missing facts Editor: Regarding the story from the Oct. 1 Times, page 18, “Burnaby senior stuck at local hospital.” There is something seriously wrong with the information in this letter. We live in Chilliwack. My husband had surgery at Royal Columbian in New Westminster in February and was transferred back to Abbotsford (where his surgeon is based) as soon as there was a bed available (which happened to be 10 days). There was never any mention of him having to stay in Royal Columbian for 14 days following surgery. So, it looks like someone doesn’t have all the facts, or has misinterpreted them. By the way, my husband received excellent care at the hospital, both from nurses and doctors (Dr. Lewis and Dr. Vrabec), so the hospitals

deserve credit where credit is due and not just criticism. My husband has had numerous surgeries at the Royal Columbian and has had reason to visit the Chilliwack Hospital also on several occasions and is certainly qualified to offer his opinion on the care received, which has always been stellar. So kudos to the hospitals and their staff, not to mention the surgeons who did an awesome job! Linda Sutton Chilliwack

Back in the ‘40s Gordo needs to rail worked well learn to quit Editor:

(Re: Rail for the Valley) I have been following the progress on this initiative since it was first announced with great interest. In the 1940s we lived in Surrey, and our nearest station for the BC Electric Interurban was at Hunt Road. Many trips were made to New Westminster and Vancouver as it was a primary mode of transportation. I had occasion to travel to Abbotsford and Chilliwack a few times. I had a Vancouver daily Province paper route and my bundle of papers was dropped off at the Newton Station by the Interurban freight car. Clearly this mode of transportation got the newspaper through to Chilliwack, as well as other freight. It has now been 60 years since there has been no passenger rail to the valley throughout a period of vast growth. Now with the mounted pressure of resurrecting this facility, I believe that there may be an important component, which is not being explored. The component is rail and tourism for the valley. As an example, think of the great

Chilliwack’s MOST WANTED PETS!

Bruce

Bruce is an 8 year old Maltese mix surrendered by a back yard breeder. The Chilliwack SPCA has had him neutered and has also had some major dental work done. Bruce is looking for a loving family prepared to show him how wonderful a dog’s life can be.

Betsy

This pretty little long haired dachshund is not quite a year old. She was given up for adoption because her family couldn’t afford to keep her. Betsy is timid and hasn’t had much training, so she will require a patient owner with dog experience.

Panda

Panda was given up for adoption because her previous family had too many other cats. She is just over 6 months of age and would be happiest in a quiet home without other cats. Panda is part ragdoll and has lilac point markings.

Solar

Editor: While in Whistler for the UBCM convention, Premier Gordon Campbell reinforced the impression that he is out of touch with the ongoing HST frustration of countless B.C. taxpayers. He may have thought it was amusing to refer to himself and his fiscal dancing partner, Finance Minister Colin Hansen, as unprepared figure skaters, however most British Columbians will not be laughing. Instead of deluding himself (perhaps he is only trying to delude the voters) with winter fantasies about Olympic heroics, the premier should be examining how thin he has made the ice by abusing the truth while practising his ego-compulsive figures. Not only has Campbell made the ice dangerously thin where he is standing, he has made it dangerously thin under every Liberal on his team. Perhaps it is time for someone to show Mr. Campbell the old Chinese proverb: “Of all the stratagems, to know when to quit is the best.” Lloyd Atkins Vernon

Solar is a laid back, 1 year old neutered male who was surrendered to the SPCA because his family didn’t have time for him. He gets along well with other cats and loves to be brushed.

Editor: In a recent letter to the Times, Mike Hodge had a letter entitled “NDP fails to live up to its oath”. Hodge expresses the typical Conservative; incorrect mantra about the NDP on the issue of the long-gun registry. Hodge repeated several very inaccurate Conservative statements. He first said that the NDP “flip-flopped” on this issue by “forcing its members to vote against the will of the people.” The simple fact is that Jack Layton is the only party leader who allowed a free vote from his members. It was, in fact, Harper and Ignatieff who “forced” their members to vote their way or the “highway.” NDP members were free to vote as their constituents mandated and several did, in fact, vote against the registry. What is this about “against the will of the people” as Hodge states? Many NDP members had polled their constituents who indicated that they were in favour of the registry. One NDP member, who had previously been personally opposed to the registry, changed his vote based on the “will of the people.” Hodge said that “ we did not vote you in.” No, Mr. Hodge, you did not, unless you happen to live in every NDP constituency across the country. Secondly, Hodge stated that not one woman came forward to support the registry. That’s correct, not one, but

Tourists could experience the history of Abbotsford and its present form of agriculture, Cultus Lake, historical Chilliwack, sturgeon and salmon fishing, Harrison Hot Springs, just to name a few. From Chilliwack to Surrey there are many who would visit Vancouver as an alternative form of transportation and not have to fight the traffic or find a parking spot. We are all aware of the vast number of tourists taking cruise ships out of Vancouver. How many of those tourists would consider taking a side trip by rail to the valley and have the opportunity to visit the various areas of interest? At the end of the line in Chilliwack, how many might there be that would like to spend some time at the world-renowned Harrison Hot Springs, while the husband takes a day off for a day of sturgeon fishing?

Howse and Horak douse Blazers

Bruins home opener a huge success with hits, fights and a 6-1 victory BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack Bruins returned to Prospera Centre with a roar Saturday as they rode a boisterous crowd to a 6-1 home opener victory over the Kamloops Blazers. Roman Horak and Ryan Howse each had two goals to continue their hot starts to the season, while Lucas Gore made 30 saves (and even chipped in two assists) for the win. After an ice maintenance problem delayed the star t of the game for nearly an hour, the Bruins emerged from their den hungry and with a bad attitude; several early hits and a fight just three minutes in, between Chase Souto and Blair Wentworth, energized the crowd of nearly 4,000 and set the tone for what was to become a physical and nasty match. The Bruins special teams led t h e w a y. A f t e r k i l l i n g a l o n g Bl a ze r s t w o - m a n a d va n t a g e, the Bruins got their own power play and quickly made Kam-

loops pay. Howse took a Brandon Manning breakaway p a s s , g o t Bl a z e r s g o a l i e Je f f Bosch to bite on a leg kick, and backhanded he puck into the open net.

Horak added another powe r p l a y m a rk e r f o u r m i n u t e s into the second period while Howse, who added his second m i d w a y t h ro u g h t h e p e r i o d , had numerous chances and

could have scored four or five on the night. Howse now has seven goals in three games, while Horak has notched the same number of points in just a pair of outings.

“They’re playing pretty good but I’m not sure they can keep up that pace the whole year,” said Habscheid of his dynamic duo. “Hopefully they can.” The game got ugly in the second period, as the Blazers took e x c e p t i o n t o a b o a rd i n g h i t by Tyler Stahl and a hit-frombehind by Blair Wentworth. While the pair were assessed two- and four-minute penalties, respectively, the Blazers aspired to vigilante justice and instigated fights on both occasions. In the third, that bad blood continued as Kamloops took more undisciplined penalties and the Br uins continued to capitalize on the powerplay, i n c l u d i n g Bre n d a n Pe r s l e y ’s f i r s t c a re e r We s t e r n Ho c k e y League tally. Fo l l ow i n g t h e n a s t y a f f a i r, the Blazers indicated that they would like to see supplemental discipline levied at Stahl, Wentwor th and possibly Persley, who was accused of elbowing a blazer defenceman. Habscheid said it was up to the league to rule on any questionable hits. But he did note that the on-ice officials only laid minor penalties for the contentious collisions. Habscheid, though, was pleased with the discipline of his squad, which took 44 minutes in penalties, less than half that of their opponents. “You don’t want it to get out of hand and I think the guys did a good job of that,” he said.

Huskers finish up 0-10 L

ongtime Chilliwack Husker Ben Skerrett did everything in his power to try and lift his squad to victory Saturday against the South Surrey Rams. It still wasn’t enough as the Huskers fell 33-21 to the Rams to finish the season winless. Skerrett rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries, caught two passes, and returned five

punts and three kickoffs in what may be the 21-yearold’s final game. But the 247 all purpose yards weren’t enough to beat back the Rams. Starting Huskers quarterback Adann Hendricksoncompleted nine passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. That pass was caught by Jackson Bates, who led all Chilliwack receivers with three catches and 46 yards

receiving. Mike Matchett added 77 yards rushing and another touchdown to round out the Huskers’ offence. This is the third time the Huskers have finished their season without a win. However, the Huskers coaches have always said this season is about building a system that will bring long-term success rather than immediate victories.

At the 35-minute mark, midfielder Jade Emond won a battle for the ball, passed to Mainse, who beat two defenders and found a wide-open Haagensen, who easily one-timed the ball into the gaping net for her second. The half, and the game, ended with Chilliwack up by two, thanks to Strikers netminder Samantha Chand.

In Vancouver, a 2,500 sq. ft. house with a gas furnace and a COP of 0.85 would spend approximately $1,378 in heating bills in one year. If this same house were equipped with a standard electric heater, one year of heating could cost you an enormous $2,967. Zuba-Central, on the other hand, would only cost about $904. Even though Zuba-Central also uses electricity, it is staggering how much more efficient it actually is. This means you would save $474, or 34%, a year on energy costs over a gas furnace, and $2,063, or 70%, over electric heaters.

Fire Prevention Week Oct. 3 to 9

A message from the chief fire prevention officer

I

t’s time to install or test your smoke alarms. In the past five years, 75 per cent of all structure fires and 95 per cent of all fire related injuries and deaths in Chilliwack occurred in residential homes. Fire Prevention Week runs from Oct. 3 to 9. This year’s theme is “Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With.” The Chilliwack Fire Department would like all residents to focus on testing their existing home smoke alarms or installing new ones. When a fire starts, smoke and other toxic gases spread quickly, leaving you only minutes to escape. Working smoke alarms provide early warning, giving you time to get out quickly and safely. If you need more information or have any questions, visit our Chilliwack Mall display during Fire Prevention Week, call Firehall 1 at 606-792-8713, or visit our web site at www.chilliwack.com/fire. The Chilliwack Fire Department appreciates the support of local businesses and service groups for our Home Smoke Alarm program and other fire prevention activities. Working smoke alarms save lives, so it’s a sound you can live with. Ian Josephson, Assistant Fire Chief, Fire Prevention/Investigations

f you’re counting on smoke to wake you up during a nighttime house fire, think again. “That’s a misconception that most people have,” said Lisa Axelson, public educator and fire inspector with the Chilliwack Fire Department. “They think, ‘Oh, it smells bad so I’ll

wake up.’ But it’s more of an anesthetic. It puts you to sleep.” Most fatal fires happen at night, she said, because sleeping people suffocate from gases without ever waking up or realizing there is a fire. The solution is a working smoke detector—a “nose in the night” and your first line of defence in a fire. This year the Chilliwack Fire Department is putting the life-

saving devices in the spotlight during Fire Prevention Week Oct. 3 to 9. “Smoke alarms: a sound you can live with” is the theme of this year’s week, and Axelson and the fire department are urging everyone to take time to install and/or maintain home smoke detectors. During the Great Community Fire Drill Oct. 7, residents are encouraged to get familiar with

the sound of their alarms before running through a household fire escape plan. “Push it, use it, so that people understand that sound,” said Axelson. “It’s a sound that should make you get up and move and do something.” No one should be without a smoke alarm, according to Axelson, and since 2002 the Chilliwack Fire Department (with help from local sponsors the Chilliwack Times, Rotary Club of Chilliwack, Canadian Tire and Barton Insurance) has given out smoke detectors and batteries free of charge to households in need. The catalyst for the home smoke alarm program—originally geared at installing smoke alarms in manufactured homes—was a mobile home fire in 2001that killed three children. The program has since expanded to include any household in need, and the fire department installs between 30 to 50 free alarms a year. This year 26 such alarms have been installed since January.

Fire Prevention Week

W

hen it comes to practising home fire escape plans, Lisa Axelson puts her money where her mouth is. The public educator and fire inspector with the Chilliwack Fire Department has a floorplan with two escape routes from every room posted in her house and has been known to jolt her family out of bed with the smoke alarm at 2 a.m. As a fire inspector, the mother of two knows that every second can mean the difference between life and death, so when her teenage kids reacted sluggishly to their first drill years ago, she went through it again. “I did not get the response that I wanted and it petrified me,” she said. Her persistence paid off, and her 21-year-old son now has a safety plan for his own place. “I’m pretty sure they humour me,” she said, “but they also realize the importance of it.” Axelson and the Chilliwack Fire Department are urging everyone to have a fire escape plan in place for the city’s second annual Great Community Fire Drill on Oct. 7. At 6:30 p.m., sirens will sound across the city and all households

Community Fire Drill - Oct. 6 at 6:30 p.m. When you hear the fire truck siren, test your smoke alarm and practise your home escape plan. ◗ For more information on the fire prevention activities, contact the fire department at 604-792-8713. are encouraged to check their smoke alarms, practise their escape plans and meet at their designated meeting places. While fire drills are a familiar routine in schools, they’re often neglected at home, and that’s a problem, says Axelson. “We know that the majority of fires happen in residential dwellings not schools,” she said, “yet all of our fire safety equipment is in public buildings; it’s not in homes. We can’t regulate what people do in their homes, because their home is their castle, so all we can do is educate.” In her work at schools and at Safety Village, Axelson often quizzes kids on

fire safety, and she’s found that while even kindergarteners would know what to do in the event of a fire at school, they wouldn’t have a clue at home. Initiatives like the Community Fire Drill, which started in Victoria and is now in its third year in the province, are important because they encourage people to think about fire safety at home. “A $10 “It makes them smoke plan,” said Axeldetector son. “It makes them realize the can save fire department your child’s will not get there in a minute and a life. Any half. They need to child in the take responsibility and put a plan in world is place and get their worth more family out.” The theme of than $10.” this years drill is Lisa Axelson “Smoke detectors: a sound you can live with,” and Axelson said there is no reason every household in the city shouldn’t have an operational smoke detector. “A $10 smoke detector can save your child’s life,” she said, “Any child in the world is worth more than $10.”

Home fire prevention tips

604.795.4489

Cooking safety tips Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling or broiling food. Turn off the stove if you must leave the room for even a short period of time. When you are simmering, boiling, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to remind you. Use the stove’s back burners whenever possible, especially if you have young children. Keep children and pets at least one metre (three feet) away from the stove. When you cook, wear clothing with tight-fitting or short sleeves. Allow food cooked in a microwave oven to cool for a minute or more before you remove it from the oven; remember to use oven mitts. Open microwaved food slowly. Hot steam escaping from the container can cause painful burns. Heating safety tips Keep space heaters at least one metre (three feet) from people and from anything that can burn, such as curtains and bedding. Turn space heaters off when you go to bed or leave the room. Have your furnace professionally inspected and serviced every year. Have your chimneys cleaned and inspected before each heating season. Electrical safety tips Replace or repair loose or frayed cords on all electrical devices or exten-

sion cords. Avoid overloading receptacles. Avoid running extension cords across doorways or under carpets. Install ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) electrical outlets in kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor areas, basements, and garages. Smoking safety tips Designate a smoking area outside the home. Provide smokers with non-tip, deep, sturdy ashtrays. Keep smoking materials away from

anything that can burn, like mattresses, bedding and upholstered furniture. Choose fire-safe cigarettes. Soak butts and ashes before dumping in a waste container. Keep matches and lighters away from children—lock in a high cupboard. Candles Keep candles away from anything that can burn. Use a stable non-combustible candle holder. Extinguish all lit candles before you leave your room or go to sleep.

Lest you get the wrong idea, the calendar does not include photos of bare-chested firemen, like some firefighters’ calendars elsewhere. Despite that fact (or, perhaps, because of it) last year’s calendar was a roaring success, raising $15,000 for charity. This year, the firefighters hope to match that total. “It showcases our department, the equipment that we have and various locations

Fire Prevention Week

Carbon monoxide safety

C

arbon monoxide (commonly known as CO) is a colourless, odourless toxic gas. When inhaled, CO interferes with the blood’s ability to absorb and transport oxygen. Carbon monoxide is produced when fuels are burned incompletely. Tobacco smoking, idling gasoline-powered vehicles, and the burning of oil, coal, wood, charcoal, kerosene, propane or natural gas can all produce carbon monoxide. The risk of carbon monoxide poisoning from regularly maintained appliances that are properly ventilated is extremely low. But improperly installed, operated or poorly maintained appliances that use these fuels may create unsafe levels of CO. In enclosed spaces like your home, vehicle, cottage, boat, recreational vehicle or tent, even a small amount of CO is dangerous. What are the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning? Exposure to carbon monoxide causes flulike symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, impaired judgement, loss of manual dexterity, and even loss of consciousness. In severe cases, CO poisoning can cause brain damage and death. The elderly, children, people with heart and respiratory conditions, and pets may be particularly sensitive to CO and may feel the effects sooner. What do I do if carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected? Leave the building immediately. Call 911 or your local fire department. Seek medical help. How do heating appliances work? The safe operation of any fuel-burning

appliance requires an adequate supply of air for combustion and effective venting of the products of combustion to the outdoors. During the normal operation of a heating appliance, fuel mixes with air to produce carbon dioxide (C02), water vapour and useful heat. Small amounts of carbon monoxide may also be formed. If there is not enough air available, or if the burner is not operating properly, incomplete combustion will result in excessive production of carbon monoxide. The vent or chimney usually removes all of the products of combustion from the building; but if the vent is not effective, products of combustion can spill into the home. What should I do to prevent a carbon monoxide hazard? Immediately move your car out of the garage after starting it. This prevents exhaust fumes seeping into the building through connecting doors or vents. Familiarize yourself with the operating and maintenance manuals provided with your fuel-burning appliances like furnaces or natural gas ovens. Have your fuel-burning appliances checked regularly by a qualified service technician or heating contractor. Gas appliances should be checked by a licensed gas fitter. Some appliance manufacturers recommend annual inspections and maintenance. Don’t barbecue indoors. Check that chimneys and vents are not corroded or blocked (by a bird’s nest, snow or ice or other debris). Keep combustion air inlet ducts clear. .

Open Air Burning Season

News

Kennel owner says SPCA has it in for all breeders PUPPY MILL, from page 1 when they were seized by the SPCA, which cited the need “to relieve the distress of the animals.” But English claims some of the health problems were misidentified by the SPCA and that other health issues were the result of a lack of care from the kennel operator and would have been addressed when the dogs were moved. As for the “puppy mill” label, English said she and Gerling are considering suing the SPCA for defamation. “ There are legitimate

opposed to dog breeding businesses. English says that attitude affects how it investigates kennels. “They’re using us as an e x a m p l e,” s h e s a i d . “It doesn’t matter how perfect everything is running. They always find something.” Drever says the SPCA won’t apologize for taking a stand. “These dogs are just used to make money,” she says. But she disagrees with any idea that the SPCA has a conflict of interest when it comes to investigating breeders. “The goal is not to take people’s animals away,” she said. Rather, the SPCA aims to educate animal owners about how to properly care for their charges.

pointed to the numerous orders given to Mountain View Kennels as evidence of ongoing problems, English says that the organization has it in for breeders and that every SPCA visit results in an order, even if it’s just to change a lock. Many orders, like those mandating what type of ground cover the dogs should sleep on, are unclear and unspecific, she added. The SPCA has used the seizure to advocate for municipal laws to stop the sale of puppy mill dogs. It has also praised a proposed bylaw in Richmond that would ban the sale of all dogs through pet stores. English and Drever agree on one thing: the fact that the SPCA is fundamentally

puppy mills out there,” said English. But Mountain View, she says, is not one. She says dogs are allowed to run around a large property and that once breeding dogs reach the age of four, they are placed with proper owners. But SPCA senior animal protection officer Eileen Drever said the dogs’ medical problems were not the result of short-term neglect. “ T h e p ro b l e m s d i d n’t just happen because they happened to be there for a couple of days,” she said. “The dogs were seized because of a number of issues.” While the SPCA has

WILLS

AND

ESTATES

What a Will? What isis a will? What is a will?

A will is a document in which you explain what you want done with the assets that you own solely in your own name when you die. These assets typically consist of real estate, money, investments, and personal or household belongings that you own.

It’s important to make a will properly. Although a will may seem simple, it’s really a complex legal document. To make an effective will requires a good understanding of property ownership rules and the law about wills. There are rules that must be followed, no matter how simple the will, otherwise the will may not be valid. And the words used must be chosen carefully so the will is clear and unambiguous.

Your will can be changed after you die. If your will doesn’t properly provide for your spouse (including a common-law spouse) or children, they can make a claim under the Wills Variation Act. And the BC Supreme Court has the power to change your will to give them a

share of your estate. So if you’re thinking of leaving a spouse or child (even a self-sufficient adult child) out of your will, or giving them less than they might reasonably expect, be sure to consult with a lawyer about the situation.

Taxes may also have to be paid. When a person dies, the law assumes that they sold their assets on the date prior to their death date, and there may be substantial capital gains on those assets. If so, the estate will have to pay tax on those gains to the Canada Revenue Agency. But if you leave your assets to a named beneficiary, tax consequences may be reduced. If you own assets that will attract capital gains tax on your death, you should speak to a lawyer or an accountant to see how you can minimize this tax. You should hire a lawyer to help you. An experienced lawyer will know about the rules that apply to wills and can help with estate planning so as to save money for your beneficiaries. And you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that your will is properly drafted

and valid, and that your estate will be paid out according to your wishes.

How much does a will cost? The cost depends on how complex your situation is. Most lawyers charge a fee that reflects the time, skill and responsibility involved. Discuss the fees with your lawyer when you call to arrange a meeting. You can minimize the legal fees by being well prepared. It helps if you have the following information ready before you meet with your lawyer: • A list of everyone in your immediate family with their full names and contact information, their relationship to you and the ages of all your children, including stepchildren. • The names and addresses of any other people or organizations to whom you want to give gifts.

• A list of all your assets, such as your home, car, investments and any personal items of significant value. It's important to describe how you own any property (for example, whether you own it alone or together with someone else). • A document that shows whose name is on the title of any real estate or house you own. • Details of any insurance policies you own, and, specifically, who the beneficiary is. • Details of any pensions, RRSPs or other investments, and the beneficiary of these. • Information about the structure of any business you operate (for example, a company or partnership). • Any separation agreements or court orders requiring you to make support payments or dealing with custody or guardianship of any minor children. • The person or company who you want to be the executor and guardian.

ESTATES

It’s important to update your estate plan.

A well-drafted will anticipates different scenarios and plans for these (for example, what happens if an adult child or grandchild dies before you). But you should still think about changing your will whenever your financial or personal circumstances change or if there’s a change in the beneficiaries. For example, if you made a will when your children were young and named your parents as guardian and executor, when your children become adults, you’ll no longer need the guardian clause and you might want your children or a sibling to be executor instead. It’s a good practice to review your will every three to five years to ensure that it still reflects your current wishes.

Provide support.

Every day, people are helped and lives are enriched by the work of registered charities and foundations, and other not-for-profit organizations in our communities. Meals for isolated seniors, summer jobs for disadvantaged high school students, funding for mental health or cancer research or a live performance by a local arts organization are just some of the ways not-for-profit organizations improve our lives. Canadians give for many different reasons: for some it is a way to ensure their memory lives on, for many it’s a way to ensure that their favorite charity is able to continue its important work, while for others it represents a way to facilitate the tax implications that come with the transfer of one’s estate to surviving relatives.

Financial assistance is essential to support and sustain charitable work. Many people generously give their money, time and energy to their local not-for-profit organizations and are unaware that by leaving a gift in their will or estate plan to the charitable groups of their choice, they can continue to help people in need or promote a favourite cause.

We wish more funding were available for medical research, for domestic abuse shelters, or a treasured arts or music program.

well lived. Your gift is your opportunity to participate in the charitable and community work most meaningful to you, in a way that allows these important causes to be well supported now and long after you have gone. Personal Philanthropy through a will can be an additional way to ensure that your memory lives on. Surprisingly, a gift can also be a very practical addition to a financial or estate plan when tax issues are taken into consideration – even for those who think they may not have tax issues. In most cases, the tax burden left to relatives is lifted significantly. Your professional advisor can teach you how giving may actually benefit your family after you’re gone. Together we can make a difference – the difference these days, is that you can impact the causes you care about by including them in your will or estate plan.

A Contribution for the Future. Personal philanthropy can help contribute to the sustainability of a not for profit organization or charity of your choice. In life, many of us require some kind of assistance, whether it’s physical, financial or spiritual. Perhaps a local organization or charity has special meaning to you. Maybe you were given a scholarship that made the dream of college possible. You or a loved one may have been shown especially compassionate care in the hospital during an illness or injury. It is during life’s many endeavers, that we are often reminded that more could be done to continue personal philanthropy which support humane acts of kindness, and help uphold programs for personal enrichment. By leaving a gift in your memory you are making a significant contribution to the future sustainability of those charitable and not for profit organizations that you value most.

HAUGH, Murray Parker 1921 ~ 2010

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our father, grandfather and greatgrandfather, Murray Parker Haugh on September 28th 2010 at the age of 88. He was born on December 9th 1921 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Dad was the husband of the late Doris Eileen Haugh and leaves behind sons Philip (Cecelia), Scott (Cherie), grandchildren Kimberly, Kelly (Eric Wiens), Derek, great-grandson Tyler and devoted friend Myrtle Broddy. A WWII Veteran, Murray retired from the Canadian Military in 1969 and returned to Chilliwack, BC to work for the Chilliwack School Board as a custodian until his retirement in 1983. Actively involved within the community, Murray was a Shriner and member of Iconic Kent Lodge #19 Chilliwack, BC, a life member of the Chilliwack Seniors Club and a regular player at Tuesday CSC cribbage. He will be truly missed by all family and friends. A family graveside service to be held at a later date.
