‘Idiotic’ behaviour shattered her world

Value of opium harvest $15 mil BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

Three-month sentence for driver in Harrison crash that killed teen

he Chilliwack opium field discovered in 2010 could have yielded a crop with a value of as much as $15 million, Crown counsel Kristina Guest told provincial court Friday during sentencing submissions for two men convicted in the largest such bust in Canadian history. Tehal Singh Bath and Mandeep Singh Dhaliwal have each pleaded guilty to charges of production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking. They were arrested Aug. 23, 2010, while tending plants on a six-acre field on Keith Wilson Road in Greendale. While the field was ringed by corn, inside that ring grew thousands of opium plants. That opium was destined to be used in doda, a powder used to make tea that provides a high similar to, but much milder than, the sensation caused by other opium products like morphine and heroin. On Friday, Guest—who is seeking a prison sentence of at least two years for the men—stressed the field’s immense potential for profit upon harvest. The precise number of plants contained in the field is a subject of debate. Defence lawyer Ian Donaldson concedes tens of thousands of plants were being grown. The Crown puts the figure much higher. Guest reminded Judge Roy Dickey that an expert estimated that the field could contain around 558,000 plants. If each plant had two opium pods, Guest said such a crop would yield 1,200 kilograms of doda. That much doda could be valued at $15 million See OPIUM, Page 4

Yvonne Van De Pere said her life was complete before June 4, 2011, when her 19year-old son Drew Helgason first met Grewal at a Harrison Hot Springs campground and jumped into the backseat of his 2007 Honda Civic, along with 16-year-old Courtney Lewis, for a trip to town to buy cigarettes.

Crawshaw played on fear factor Crown tells court how man who shot his boss in the head three times, hasn’t been a model prisoner

CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack man who murdered his boss 20 years ago over a workplace grievance has continued to “tilt at windmills” in prison, according Crown Counsel Henry Waldock who is arguing against Allan Crawshaw’s early release in BC Supreme Court in Chilliwack. Crawshaw was sentenced to 25 years in prison after walking into Fraser Valley Foods in 1993 with a rifle and two pipe bombs and killing his supervisor, Trevor Newberry. He is now seeking early release under the so-called“faint hope clause” that allows him to apply to seek early parole after serving 15 years of his sentence. (The statute has been removed, but remains in force for offences committed before Dec. 2, 2011.) But, in his opening statement to jurors last Thursday, Waldock said he plans to call witnesses who will describe incidents in prison that show Crawshaw has continued to exhibit the same aggressive and confronta-

tional behaviour and paranoid thinking that preceded the murder. Before 1993, Waldock said Crawshaw was passionately interested in the trade union movement and, as shop steward at Fraser Valley Foods, “confronted his managers aggressively and grieved often.” His employer suspended him several times before his final suspension by Newberry, which ended with Crawshaw shooting his boss three times in the head. In prison, Crawshaw hasn’t shown himself to be the type to “stab prisoners or attack guards,” Waldock said. “But he did file grievances, lots of them, just like when he worked in the food processing plant.” Waldock told the jury they would hear about different times Crawshaw was moved from minimum to medium security facilities after issues with prison authorities, including one in which Crawshaw believed his Correc-

the short sentence. “It’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard in my life,” she said outside the Chilliwack courthouse. The Crown had called for a one-year jail term to be followed by another year of probation as well as an additional driving ban of “something more than year.” Defence counsel Kevin Filkow had suggested a one- to three-year period of probation, with conditions similar to house arrest, including a strict curfew, counselling and community service hours. He argued against a further driving ban, noting Grewal has no other driving offences on his record apart from the accident. He also noted “a certain unfairness” in the motor vehicle branch having imposed a two-year ban on Grewal before he was found guilty. In his ruling, MacKay called Van De Pere’s victim impact statement “haunting” and denounced the senseless of her son’s death, noting how “a few seconds of idiotic behaviour can cause immeasurable grief.” He added, however, that despite Grewal’s “egregious error of judgment” two years ago, he did not pose

an ongoing threat to society, was a good candidate for rehabilitation and appeared genuinely remorseful for his actions. “Any punishment I impose I expect will likely be far less than the selfimposed punishment he wrestles with now,” MacKay said. In her victim impact statement, Van De Pere described Helgason as a “grateful, honest, loving son”—a kindhearted individual who asked her in elementary school to start packing an extra lunch for a fellow student he noticed not bringing one. She said she is haunted by the thought of her son’s final moments, when, according to what Lewis has told her, she and Helgason pleaded in terror from the backseat of Grewal’s car for him to slow down. “I know from Courtney [Lewis] that he turned around and laughed at Drew and Courtney not once but twice,” read Van De Pere’s statement. Blessin noted statements made in victim impact statements are not evidence, and when MacKay asked about the account, Filkow said, “The defence doesn’t agree with that.” At that, Lewis, in the audience, shook her head and pounded her fists

Newberry’s murder but also the intent to endanger life related to the pipe bombs, which he said were meant for two or more other bosses. One of the things that concerns the Crown, Waldock told the jury, was that Crawshaw “played to the press,” after turning himself into police after the murder, “apparently in an effort to cause management to fear further violence.” As to the impact of the crime, Waldock told the jury they would hear victim impact statements from Newberry’s widow and former Fraser Valley Foods manager Barry Kidd, as well as testimony from another of Crawshaw’s former bosses, Rick Beyak. “I expect that you’ll learn from these folks that they still fear him today,” Waldock said. ◗ Crawshaw’s hearing, which is expected to take 12 days, continues this week.

SHATTERED, from page 1 I’ve lost my identity. There’s no longer joy in my heart or my home. Drew was my purpose, my pride, and I cry for him every day.” In April, Grewal pleaded guilty to charges of dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm. He was originally charged with six different offences, including impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, causing an accident resulting in death and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm. On Thursday, the 25-year-old Delta man was sentenced to three months in jail (to be served on weekends) and 15 months of probation as well as 60 hours of community service. Grewal had been under a two-year driving ban imposed by the superintendent of motor vehicles since the accident, and Judge Russell MacKay imposed no further driving restrictions. Van De Pere said she was “too numb” to comment on Grewal’s sentence after the hearing, but Lewis— who suffered broken bones and a concussion during the crash and has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)—was upset by

tional Service of Canada (CSC) supervisor at the prison store, a woman 35 years his junior, was flirting with him aggressively. Waldock said the jury will hear from the CSC supervisor and a co-worker who will contradict Crawshaw’s version of those events and from a forensic psychiatrist who will say Crawshaw’s fixation with the woman was a manifestation of his ongoing paranoid personality disorder. Waldock said he expects the Crown’s two expert psychiatrists to say Crawshaw would pose a moderate rather than an extreme risk to the community if he were allowed a chance to seek early parole. But a criminal’s character and conduct aren’t the only factors to be considered under the law, Waldock said. He said the nature of the crime and its impact must also be considered. The crimes Crawshaw was convicted of in 1994 included not only

Tightening up school budget

Throness gets role he’s well suited for

hilliwack-Hope’s new MLA didn’t make it into Premier Christy Clark’s inner cabinet circle announced Friday, but Laurie Throness was named Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General for Corrections. The role makes sense for Throness who completed his PhD in History at Cambridge University in the UK, and wrote a book (published in October 2008) about the history of our penitentiary system. “I went to study why we put people in jail for long periods of time,” Throness told the Times in January 2012. “That’s an incredibly important element of our justice system. You might say the central element of our justice system across all western nations.” The new Justice Minister Throness will work under is

Laurie Throness rookie MLA Suzanne Anton, who is a lawyer and served as a Vancouver city councillor from 2005 to 2011. Working alongside Throness will be University of the Fraser Valley criminology professor and MLA for Abbotsford South, Darryl Plecas, who is the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General for Crime Reduction. A third Parliamentary Secretary in the portfolio is John Yap, who will be responsible for liquor policy reform. A gover nment backgrounder says Throness, in his role, will “work with stakeholders in the corrections field to propose changes and improvements to how we protect staff, inmates and the communities in which correctional facilities are located.”

he Chilliwack school board has directed staff to tighten up its proposed 2013-14 budget after being blasted by a former School District No. 33 secretary-treasurer at its last public meeting. Next year’s preliminary budget was to have been presented a May 28 meeting but was delayed by the absence of director of finance James Richards. The draft budget attached to that meeting’s agenda, however, had included a $194,000 general operating deficit, and retired secretary-treasurer Don Murray had chastised the board for too regularly relying on surplus funds to balance its books. Now a new preliminary budget has

A crop one-tenth that size would still produce 120 kilograms with a wholesale value of more than a million dollars. “The potential for profit here is astounding,” said Guest, who said the court might be hearing the first dodaproduction case in Canadian history. “The numbers are difficult to grasp because they’re so large,” Guest said. But by any count, she said the field would produce “an exceptional amount of schedule one drugs.” Dickey noted: “It’s not for personal use.”

done away with that deficit by cutting $100,000 from Fraser Valley Distance Education School supplies as well as paring down budgets for office and custodial supplies, public relations, travel and professional development. “The feedback to administration from trustees was to bring in to balance our ongoing operating expenses with our revenues,” superintendent Evelyn Novak told the Times. Although the board planning meeting at which trustees gave staff this direction came after Murray’s comments, Novak said she doesn’t believe the retired secretary-treasurer’s criticism directly impacted the board’s decision. “It really was about the board going through the budget with administration and looking at how the board operates and setting direction,” she said.

The new proposed 2013-14 budget, which will be presented to the board Tuesday, still features a deficit of $715,000, including $215,000 for the district’s Keeping Kids in School program for aboriginal students and $500,000 to complete an extensive $3 million technology upgrade started in 2009. But that spending will be covered by restricted funds put aside for those purposes. The district’s unrestricted $855,268 surplus will remained untouched next year. ◗ Tuesday’s school board meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the school board office (8430 Cessna Dr.).

Disagree on harvest amounts But Donaldson asked the judge to view those figures with skepticism. Donaldson—who is arguing house arrest is a suitable sentence—said there is a very small market for doda in British Columbia, and that Dhaliwal and Bath weren’t likely to become rich from their venture. Donaldson also argued that many of the plants had fewer than two pods. Fifty thousand plants, as police originally estimated, with one pod each would produce a relatively tame 50 kilograms of doda, he said. “That’s a substantial amount, I agree,” Donaldson said. “But it’s not the astro-

nomical amount that might drive these valuations.” Guest said the court should consider the fact that Dhaliwal and Bath were attempting to produce a drug that is “not normally indigenous to Canada.” “These men were creating it in Canada and they were creating it on a mass scale,” she said. “A strong pronouncement of the consequences of growing it in Canada is needed.” But Donaldson argued doda is “mostly benign” and that there is little evidence it produces criminality associated with other top-tier drugs like heroin and cocaine.”

Used topless fakes to extort teen

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack man who used a photoshopped Facebook image in an attempt to extort topless photos from a 15-year-old girl is facing house arrest. Gabriel Wilkinson was 19 in 2010 when, assuming a fake name, he emailed the teen—who cannot be named because of a publication ban—with a photo of the girl in a bathing suit taken from her unsecured Facebook page. Soon after, Wilkinson—under the name John Michaels—sent the teen another photo, but this one appeared to show the girl topless. The picture was clearly a fake: Wilkinson took the photo from the teen’s Facebook and clumsily altered it to appear to show her topless. In the email, Wilkinson threatened to send the altered photo to the girl’s family and friends unless she anted up with the real thing. When the girl declined and pointed out that the photo was clearly a fake, Wilkinson countered by telling her: “Whether it looks real or not, I can spend more time on it. People will believe what they want to believe. I will not leave you alone until you give me what I want.” Wilkinson told the teen she didn’t know him. But he sent the teen a

these cases,” Judge Wendy Young said. Sabourin agreed, and said the conduct of Wilkinson cried out for denunciation and deterrence. “This is a growing problem in society,” she said. But defence counsel Martin Finch disagreed. “This case should not become the litmus test for how the courts should consider the misuse of the Internet,” he said. Finch asked for an even shorter conditional sentence. Despite the online aspect of the case, Finch argued the two teens did know each other and the extortion could have presumably taken place in a preInternet era. “We have,” Finch said, “a young, stupid, ignorant, insensitive man— just a man—involving himself in something that really is the kind of nonsense one can find regularly going on in high school.” The Internet has elevated the activity to a level of criminality that might not previously have been possible, he said. At the time of the extortion attempt, Finch told Young his client’s tight-knit church-going family was experiencing stress caused byWilkinson’s father’s poor state of health. Young will hand down her sentence on Friday.

Party poopers or local boosters?

Fistful of skills medals

Some critics say Party in the Park has strayed too far from home BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he stage portion of Chilliwack’s Party in the Park (PITP) may have gotten too big for its britches, according to some critics of the increasingly popular eight-week summer event held Friday evenings at Central Community Park. Last week, Chilliwack city council approved a doubling in taxpayer funding for PITP from $7,000 in 2012 to close to $16,000 this year. And while council was reluctant to approve the huge jump in funding, there was specific criticism that the talent on stage involved fewer and fewer Chilliwack acts. “I think they would see a great amount of value if they focused a little bit more on local talent and tried to keep the budget down that way,” Coun. Sue Attrill said at the June 4 meeting. Well-known local musician Trevor McDonald—who was in charge of the music at PITP in the first three years—posted a message on his Facebook page critical

C

of the direction PITP took since his departure. “Of the hundreds of LOCAL acts I booked for three years at Party in the Park, there was not one who sneered at the minimal amount of money they were making!” he wrote. That comment contradicted BIA executive director Kathy Funk who told Mayor Sharon Gaetz and the media in an email that, early on, community musicians “were willing to play for free and are asking to be paid now.” McDonald’s posting sparked a huge conversation on his page with 65 comments in two days. Most were critical of the move away from local talent. “When I seen they put Faber Drive as the kick-off entertainers last year and that you weren’t involved I knew this was coming,” said David Mawhinney. “This town has no shortage of talented musicians am entertainers!” Jodi Augustine said. Desmond Devnich of the BIA said the entertainment co-ordinator has had to find a balance between

Some critics have said the budget for Party in the Park’s entertainment stage has risen too high with fewer opportunities for local musicians. local musicians and recording artists. But he too suggested the PITP mission “has been confused over the years.” Even Gail Popove, wife of Coun. Ken Popove who used to be the president of the BIA, commented on McDonald’s post. “Ken could not vote on this issue because he was in conflict. But my feeling is, he would have voted against it for the mere fact that our pool of local talent is not being used.” Party in the Park attracted an estimated 30,000 people in 2012 with a stage budget of $18,760. The proposed budget for 2013 for entertainment presented to council by the BIA in asking for the increased

money is $24,550. The discussion on McDonald’s Facebook page prompted some to suggest a competing event featuring only local talent be organized at another park. McDonald himself maintained that he did not want to be critical of PITP and the hard work put into the event, but he urged the organizers to take a step back and remember what it was like in the past. “My problem is the constant need to make it bigger and better when it was awesome two years ago!” he wrote. The entertainment for PITP is now co-ordinated by Abbotsford’s Darcy D Music Group, which is now accepting applications to perform.

hilliwack students captured a fistful of medals at the Skills Canada National Competition in Vancouver last weekend. Competing against the best high school trades and technology students from across the country, three Sardis secondary students took home medals. Jonathon Hergott won silver in welding, Joseph Ryan earned silver in mechnical CAD (computer aided design) and Justin Emery took bronze in IT network systems administration. A gold medal in cooking won by Abbotsford collegiate grad Amie Peters also has a local connection. Peters was recruited as a line cook by Frankie’s Italian Kitchen in Chilliwack after winning gold at the regional skills competition last month.

When asked if he was frustrated with the relentless opposition by the FVRD to Metro’s process, Moore said it was the personal attacks that were the most challenging. “I wish we could debate the facts and not take it to a personal level,” Moore told theTimes. ◗ See www.chilliwacktimes.com for more.

CHLORINE IN YOUR WATER

Q & A WITH ANDY FROM

AJ PUMPS

www.ThePlayRoomToyShop.com Facebook.com/ThePlayRoomToyShop

604.824.PLAY

Don't like the taste or smell of your water? Here's what you can do about chlorination.

Q. How can I get rid of it?

A. Chlorine can be removed several ways....boiling the water is one way but tedious. Evaporation works but takes time, distillation is another method. The easiest way is with filtration.

Q. Can I just put a filter on my tap?

A. The filter can go on your whole house or individual taps or on your jug of water

Q. But don't I have to change filters all the time?

Andy AJ Pumps

A. Filters only absorb so much then they have to be changed. With our systems the average

home changes once a year.(depending on chlorine concentration and amount of water used)

Q. What about a permanent set-up under my sink. Is it expensive? A. Filtration can be installed at point of use under the sink with a separate tap or can be

connected to your existing tap. Do-it-yourself kits are about $125. Installed its about $225.

Q. My whole house smells of chlorine, especially after showering? A. If you don't like showering or brushing your teeth with chlorine a whole house filter can be

installed. Surprisingly this does not cost much more than filtering just your sink. Another advantage to this is that if your house is on a septic field you do not neutralize the bacteria in the field. We find the average home is only about $500 installed.

Chlorine is here to stay... you do not have to get used to it or learn to live with it. It can be effectively removed at a relatively low cost. -Andy.

The mystery of sporting success

O

h, boy! It’s June, so that means the Tour de France is right around the corner! A full 21 days of cyclists racing around France and. wait, come back! Where are you going? Competitive cycling isn’t really a big draw in North America. If you can find coverage of it at all on TV, it will be because A) a Canadian has managed to unexpectedly sprint to a yellow jersey or B) because someone has crashed in a truly spectacular manner. After showing the 10-second cycling clip, the news will go right back to five minutes of serious analysis of various groin injuries or coaching shakeups in post-season hockey. For once, I agree with my hockey-loving compatriots. As a televised sport, cycle racing is intermittently thrilling, at best. The sprints to the finish, the sudden breakaway—these can be great moments. But they come after about two hours of watching a horde of riders moving as one down the roads, like a giant spandex-clad amoeba. The Tour de France is still a big event, but even in Europe, it can’t hold a candle to soccer (football, if you prefer). In the United States, the top sports are American football, baseball, basketball, and NASCAR. I suppose NASCAR, which I find staggeringly dull, beats out bicycle racing because if bicycles crash, they are definitely not going to explode.

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest In Canada, we like hockey, baseball, Canadian football, lacrosse, curling. In the rest of the Commonwealth, cricket remains popular, despite the fact that its rules are as impenetrable as quantum mechanical theory. Do you know what the most popular spectator sport was in much of Canada around 100 years ago? Rowing. Before the rise of the modern NHL, you got big crowds along canals and lakeshores to watch men try to outrace each other on skinny boats. This was around the same time that bicycle racing was hitting its peak of popularity, and competitive fencing was still a big draw in European theatres. Why have some sports declined in popularity, while others have surged? It’s just a theory, but I think it has something to do with money, and something to do with the nature of the sports. I mentioned that cycle racing can be dull to watch. Fencing is exciting—but over very quickly, and it can be hard to see or understand what’s taking place. A proper fenc-

ing match requires five referees/ judges for just two fencers! It can be filmed well, but it takes a lot of effort and knowledge of the sport. Baseball, hockey, football, soccer, cricket and combat sports like boxing and ultimate fighting, on the other hand, all have some things in common. They can all take place in purpose-built indoor arenas, which makes it much easier to sell tickets to games. They also all translate well to television. Team sports allow for an ongoing loyal relationship with a group, as opposed to a fleeting one with an athlete who may have 10 or 15 years at the top of their game. So my theory about why some sports are popular is basically Enclosed Stadium + Easy to Watch + Branded Team = Success! Look at boxing versus pro wrestling. Wrestling is goofy, and no one older than seven believes the storylines are real, but it gets a lot more TV airtime than boxing. It has a big roster of recognizeable names, branding, and ongoing storylines that hook its viewers. Boxing is individual guys competing in few matches. There is one sport that makes me think I might be completely wrong about what makes a sport popular. It’s slow, it has no teams, no stadiums, and it’s fairly hard to film effectively. It’s golf. If anyone can explain this one to me, please do. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the LangleyAdvance.

he Canadian Senate is to consider a plan to do a complete, top-tobottom audit of its expenses, including the spending of each of its individual senators. It could be that this is a good thing. From all the evidence so far it seems that senators like Mike Duffy have treated the Red Chamber less like a place of learned discourse and more like Scrooge McDuck’s money vault. Duffy has been backstroking through cash and perks since being appointed, and we eagerly await more thorough audits of his fellow ex-journalist Pamela Wallin, along with a few other less famous senators. On the other hand, perhaps an audit isn’t worth the cost. Maybe we could just save money by replacing the entire Senate with bags of sand, propped up in the comfy armchairs of the chamber. They would, in many ways, resemble the average senator. They would take up space, they would weigh about the same, and they would have as much relevance to the average Canadian citizen. In theory, the Canadian Senate holds an interesting place in our democracy, as a chamber in which lifetime appointments allow its members the security of not having to worry about public opinion. Instead, they may let themselves ponder the larger, philosophical issues. In practice, the Senate still holds an interesting place in our democracy. First, it’s not in the least democratic. Second, it has produced not very much sober second thought over the years, but has proved to be an excellent producer of scandal, patronage, and headlines about worthless old political hacks taking vacations in Mexico or Florida on the taxpayer’s dime. The Senate only needs an audit if we intend to keep it around in its present form. If we can all agree that it needs massive reform, or simply to be disbanded, let’s skip a step, save some money, and just get on with the job.

Hard to keep up with ever-rising property taxes Editor: On May 29 I received my tax notice from the City of Chilliwack, enclosed was a colourful “Birthday Card” format stating “Chilliwack a Great Place to Live.” In this respect I am beginning to wonder if that is quite true. In 2011 my property taxes increased by $221.01. In 2012 my property taxes increased by $54.22 and in 2013 my property taxes increased by $154.65. So, within a three-year period, my taxes have increased by $429.88. The mayor states that we have lower taxes than some other cities in the region, however, what she doesn’t tell you is that those other cities include water, sewer and garbage pickup, within their taxes. We, as you very well know, have to pay all of that separately. I have lived in Chilliwack since 1977 when I was posted in the military to the base. Seeing that I had in excess of 30 years service during my stay, we decided to buy here. Going back over the years, our taxes have never risen that high in a 10-year period, let alone three years. Is the mayor attempting to force seniors out of their houses ? If so she is going about it the right way? I gather that we are still paying for the houses that have a “Panoramic” view. Another wonderful thing about Chilliwack is our very high cost of gasoline at the pumps. On May 30, I travelled to Abbotsford. While there, I filled up my tank for a cost of $1.28.9 per litre. On returning to Chilliwack the gas was $1.38.9 per litre. It did, however, go down to $1.36.9 on May 31. This I cannot blame on the city. However, how can the petroleum industry justify the 10-cent per litre within a 20mile radius? Peter Lawn Chilliwack

Willing to drive across town for EFI

home buying and relocation on an EFI program initiation (11). Dana Jones Chilliwack

Editor: Dear Board of Education of School District No.33 (Chilliwack): Please accept this email as my firm commitment to Early French Immersion (EFI). I am willing to drive my son to any school chosen for the EFI program, south or north of Highway #1. He will be entering kindergarten in 2016. Also, please note my utter disappointment in the feasibility report that misconstrued the driving issue and disproportionately highlighted comments from parents who stated they would not drive their children to a school north of Highway #1. I have gone through every comment related to school selection and willingness to drive and the number of comments that show some willingness to drive far outnumber those who did not. There were seven comments total that stated they would not drive out of catchment area, north of Highway #1, or to only certain schools. There were 10 comments strongly stating they would drive their children anywhere in the school district. This does not count the comments of parents who already drive their children to other schools districts, who have chosen to live elsewhere as Chilliwack doesn’t offer EFI, or state they would be willing to base

Keep up the heat on EFI program Editor: I am hopeful yet again that Chilliwack could see the implementation of an Early French Immersion program for the 2014 school year. So many parents have come together and worked so hard to try to make this happen over the last two years. They have spread the word and shared with their friends the benefits of such a program, they have taken surveys, written letters and volunteered their info so we could show the district that such a high demand exists. They have come to numerous school board meetings, parent meetings, and have put in many hours and created a local chapter of Canadian Parents for French. I want to thank everyone for all their hard work and perseverance up to now, but it doesn’t end here. This is our last chance to write a letter to the school board trustees that states you’d be willing to drive your child to Cheam elementary or any other school in the district so the board can see that we are committed to seeing this program start

The speed limit on Tyson isn’t 30km/h Editor: In response to the letter from Chris Stayko, I certainly appreciate that someone is concerned about speeders in the school zones. However, if their letter is in regards to the high school on Tyson, then the speed is actually 50km/h. There is no posted speed of 30k. Everyone should possibly get to know the B.C. Motor Vehicle Act as these are the laws that we must follow to have the privilege to drive in B.C. Section 147 states that when a sign is displayed stating a speed limit of 30km/h or on which the numerals “30” are prominently shown, must drive at a rate of speed not exceeding 30km/h while approaching or passing the school grounds. What it doesn’t actually state is if there is no 30k numerals posted under the school sign, then the speed limit is that of the surrounding streets, in this case 50 km/h. This was confirmed by the RCMP, and the drivinginstructorblog.com/tag/school-zone-signs/. This also applies to the high school on Stevenson and elementary schools on Evans and Vedder to name a few. I used to be a school bus driver in another district and we had to know all the laws, especially those in school zones. The owner of that bus company was a policeman and very strict.

Air cadet program produces greatness Editor: Astronauts Chris Hadfield, Marc Garneau, Jeremy Hansen; former Prime Minster Joe Clark; our own former Lt. Gov. Steven Point; the former Chief of Defence staff General Walter Natynzyk and the present commander of the Snowbirds Lt. Col. Maryse Carmichael. Throw in celebrities such as country star George Canyon, children’s entertainer Fred Penner and local CBC meteorologist JohannaWagstaff and what do you have? You have just a tiny portion of the people who were former Air Cadets and now have gone on to bigger and better things. On June 8 I had the pleasure of attending the Annual Cadet Review of Chilliwack’s 147 Silverfox Air Cadet Squadron. The event was held at the Landing Sports Centre and, judging by the enthusiastic response, was also well enjoyed by others there. We all realize that money is tight these days, but by having the foresight to make available a relatively inexpensive organization for our Chilliwack youth in the form of a local Air Cadet squadron, we are laying the groundwork for productive adults in the future. Throughout my military and civilian aviation career, I remember being told something by an old airman, he said, “There are, generally, three types of individuals you’ll run across in life; those that make things happen; those that watch things happen; and those that wonder ‘What the heck just happened!’ ” Kudos to Commanding Officer Capt. Ted Bowman and his staff as well as the tireless work of the parents and volunteers working with Chair Vicky Briggs of the Squadron Sponsoring Committee. Richard Benson Chilliwack
