Elections Part II



– The Good, the Not-so-Good and the Ugly by Carolyn Parks Mintz, Author, Journalist & Freelance Writer

Well done, Chase! Of the village’s 1,800 eligible voters, nearly 1,100 voted in the recent municipal election. And while politicians, electoral systems, and legislation are often maligned (sometimes fairly and sometimes unfairly), it is reassuring to know that Canada’s democracy basically remains intact. And kudos to those who let their name stand for election. Taking part in the democratic process supports the freedoms we enjoy—and can be daunting. Putting oneself ‘out there’ opens a candidate’s values, lifestyle and past to examination and scrutiny. Despite the above positives, recent occurrences during the election in Chase have left this journalist and her family disheartened and unsettled. Firstly, we enjoy the village, love its surroundings, and have met numerous kind and generous people who live here, since moving in over two years ago. Hence, it was deeply disappointing recently to see, hear, and read slanderous and libelous accusations that were made in the run-up to voting day. While free speech is a definitive principle within our country, clear restrictions around it exist. Statutory defamation law protects an individual’s reputation and in that, aims to maintain a level of decorum and civility around differences of belief, outlook or understanding...

Yes, we all are free to comment, even harshly, on issues of public interest but only as a matter of opinion. And such statements are to be based on facts which can be proven conclusively and are not to be malicious. Responsible communication, reporting both sides of a story or issue, is informative and demonstrates fairness— and lets the reader or listener decide. Today’s social media leads to some of the worst examples of one-sided libel, delivered by those hiding behind pseudonyms and anonymous blogs. And then there are some who blatantly display vindictive and mean-spirited attitudes regardless of consequences. Spreading dirt and mud around invariably means some of it sticks to the spreader. Just my opinion. Suffice to say, that a bit of the ‘shine has gone off the pumpkin’ with regard to our love affair with Chase. But then, focusing on the positive, associating with the good people of this vibrant community, contributing where we can, and being thankful for what we have here will win out in the end. One thing seems clear—to earn respect, one must exhibit respect. And as Aristotle once wrote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit.”

A season of thanksgiving by Tyler Harper

I hope that you have recovered from whatever your thanksgiving weekend brought—whether it was a large table full of feasting and family or it was a more solitary affair. Whether your last long weekend included travel far from our comfortable village or if you didn’t travel much pass the threshold of your home, I hope you experienced a time of gratitude. Thanksgiving is a time to remember the vast bounty that we have been blessed with, realizing the great yield of harvest time. This time between Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day is a sort of season of thankfulness. In this time we are thankful for our needs that our met, and those who have given themselves for our security. Giving thanks is an active thing, it is giving thanks. But this action starts with a realization. Before we give thanks we have to be aware of what we have in our life that is worthy of this action. We can’t give thanks if we don’t think we have anything worthy of thanks and regardless of where we find ourselves in the dogeat-dog world, regardless of the size of your bank account, or the size of your family, we all have so much to be thankful for: fresh water, clean air, security, and relationship. Not all of us will enjoy a feast in these days of thanksgiving, but we don’t have fears of armies marching down our street, we don’t have a shortage of water to drink or air to breath, and we have the opportunity for community. But giving thanks can be so

hard, for many of us gratitude doesn’t come naturally, in fact, it might be the last thing we might think of doing. While we all have so much to be thankful for, I believe that it is this last point that is most important for gratitude. Gratitude, thanksgiving can’t occur in a vacuum— because we can’t just be thankful, we give thanks. Giving thanks doesn’t just happen inside of us, it has to connect to someone else. True gratitude requires a relationship. I think that one of the reasons why so many of us struggle with giving thanks is we are disconnected from those who deserve our gratitude. Our food is grown by people thousands of kilometers away, whom we will likely never met, we are helped by people who are warehoused in a call centre or are reduced to an email address, we spend so much of our time alone in personalized ways —personal automobiles, personal music tastes, screens that are personalized for our tastes. We are isolated in our cars and behind computers and phones and through our busyness. Maybe gratitude feels so foreign, because we have lost contact with those who are deserving our thanks? Let me ask you a question, who are you thankful to? Who do you need to build a relationship with to express your thankfulness? Tyler Harper (tyler@ is the Pastor at the Chase Evangelical Free Church

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING VILLAGE of CHASE ZONING AMENDMENT BYLAW NO. 857-2018 The Village of Chase Council will be holding a Public Hearing pursuant to Section 464 of the Local Government Act, to consider amendments to the Village of Chase Zoning Bylaw No. 636-2006 for the following property shown as “subject property” on the sketch plan below. The Council will consider amending the land use designation by installing a land use designation on the ‘subject property’ for ‘R-1, Low Density Residential’. What is the Zoning Amendment about?

Bunnyrabbits Cross Country Ski Program Deadline is November 11

by Michelle Tsutsumi, Skmana Ski & Snowshoe Club Vice President & Secretary

Things are hopping along to get things ready for the Bunnyrabbits Program this winter. Dolson’s in Kamloops is ready to order equipment for our 4- and 5-year-old skiers, thanks to a grant awarded by viaSport this summer. The program is half full and we’re aiming to have everyone registered by November 11th. This means that equipment and program packages (that include sweet toques for each child) can be ordered and received by the time lessons start in January. If registrations roll in after November 11th, there is no guarantee that there will be free equipment to use during the program. The plan is to hold six weekly lessons starting on January 8 and running until February 12, from 1:30 to 2:15. Weather permitting, the program would continue until February 26. (Yes, the program will be running on Tuesdays. Unfortunately, with our volunteer coaches who work on weekends, this was the only day of the week that was possible to run Bunnyrabbits. If someone is interested in helping with coaching, weekend lessons can be offered). The cost and use of equipment, as well as the Bunnyrabbits classes, will be free to club members (a minimum of one adult and one child). The objective is to introduce cross country skiing and the healthy lifestyle associated with it through organized activity and active play. In addition, the program is designed to:

• Help children develop a positive self-image. • Be fun. • Provide children an opportunity to make skifriends. • Develop fundamental movement skills. • Help children develop an awareness and appreciation of our natural environment. Skmana offers 18 km of ski and snowshoe trails to explore and it is only 15 minutes out of Chase. During the off-season, Skmana Ski and Snowshoe Club acquired a new piece of equipment so that track setting can occur in more variable conditions. This means phenomenal skiing over the winter! With a warming hut, and trails for all ability levels and conditions, it is a winter wonderland for all ages to enjoy. For more information about membership and the Bunnyrabbits program, please visit our brand new website: com, thanks to Stefan Schielke of inTechrity! If you are interested in sponsoring the Bunnyrabbits program locally, email skiskmana@ With the lowest Nordic club membership rate in the province and the hidden treasure of trails, Skmana Ski and Snowshoe Club is worth a try this winter. This project was funded in part by a grant from viaSport BC and the province of British Columbia and funded in part by the Government of Canada.
