The family of Eric O’Hern, a 26-year-old Surrey man who died after being run over by a hit-and-run driver in the Chilliwack River Valley, stands on the Chilliwack Court House steps Thursday. Family members and friends were in Chilliwack for the sentencing of the driver who was handed a $350 fine. BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

Family says $350 fine isn’t a fair price to pay

he family of a Surrey man who died last summer after being run over by a pickup truck in the Chilliwack River Valley is devastated the driver, who left the scene and didn’t return, has been sentenced to a $350 fine and won’t face a driving prohibition. On Aug. 4, 2012, 29-year-old Graheme Johnstone’s Chevy Silverado collided head on with a pocket motorcycle being ridden by Eric O’Hern on the Chipmunk Creek Forestry Service Road near the Chipmunk Peninsula Campground. Johnstone stopped and got out of his truck briefly after the crash, according to witnesses, but then drove off, leaving others at the scene to attend to O’Hern, who lay on the dirt road with massive head trauma

and internal bleeding that led to his death at Royal Columbian Hospital six days later. “Graheme Johnstone hit Eric with his truck so hard that the nurses in ICU had mistakenly thought that Eric had been hit by a logging truck,” O’Hern’s mother Norman Carstens said in a victim impact statement Thursday. “I’ve asked myself over and over again, what kind of person could hit someone that hard and hurt someone that badly and drive away?” Johnstone, a Surrey resident, called 9-1-1 two and a half hours after the crash and later told police he had left the scene to find cellphone service so he could call for help.

espite a Chilliwack dentist’s refusal to treat 12-yearold Sophia Filiatrault—an experience that led the autistic girl’s parents to file a human rights complaint—the incident seems to be the exception rather than the rule. Even in recounting the visit to a dentist whose staff said they could not work with Sophia, parents Bernard Filiatrault and Paulette Weismiller said local businesses are indeed quite accommodating. Sophia has a number of other conditions, including high anxiety, in addition to her autism that cause challenges when she has experiences out of her normal routine. But a local hair salon didn’t charge the full rate knowing she would have to come multiple times to get her hair cut. “Most places are like that,” Paulette said of the hair salon. “This is the first major incident I have encountered. My doctor is accommodating, bloodwork is accommodating, X-ray is accommodating. It’s been wonderful.” Autism on the rise Recent statistics show there are more than 7,000 children and youth in B.C. diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. One study showed that more children are diagnosed with autism

to get out of a vehicle to go into Pacific Eye Doctors in Chilliwack. Not only did the eye doctor come out to the van to do an eye exam, which took some creativity, follow-up appointments were also done in the parking lot. “Chilliwack has a really great reputation as an inclusive community,” Unger said.

INTRO: October is Community Living Month in B.C., a time of year to recognize those with developmental disabilities and their contributions to the community. This story is part two of a two-part series on the challenges faced by parents of children with autism and how they are treated in the community.

Moving on Parents of children with autism often feel judged by others when they are at the grocery store, the playground or anywhere in public. Sophia’s experience with the dentist, Dr. Yoon Yai Choi, while unfortunate, seems to be unusual even for individuals with extreme conditions such as hers. The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has accepted the families complaint and has received a response from the dentist in question. They are currently waiting to hear if there will be a negotiated settlement or a hearing. When asked what they want out of the complaint, Sophia’s mother said an apology and maybe more training for the staff at the clinic. Dr. Choi told theTimes ,“I did tell them I was sorry I couldn’t treat Sophia.” Since the incident, Sophia’s parents have found her another dentist who was willing to facilitate her needs, including inviting her to drop by any time just to visit the office and get familiar with the chair until she was ready for an appointment. “Sophia has since had a full checkup and has had her teeth cleaned over two visits,” Bernard said. “She is now scheduled to go back every six months for a checkup and is looking forward to it.” ◗ Visit www.chilliwacktimes.com to read part one of this story.

Six candidates will fight for seat on school board Harold Schmidt and Rob Stelmaschuk join byelection race

half-dozen candidates will square off in next month’s Chilliwack school board byelection. Nominations for the Nov. 30 election closed Friday, and election signs have begun to pop up around the city. Since local parent and small business owner Ben Besler announced his bid last week, two more candidates have joined the fray—neither one a stranger to municipal elections. Longtime School District No. 33 teacher Harold Schmidt will take his second kick at the school board can.

Refund coming for summer students Settlement ends class-action suits, our cost: $66,000

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack school board has run into another unexpected cost. Under a settlement reached in B.C. Supreme Court Friday, the board will have to refund about $66,000 in tuition fees collected from 159 students’ families for academic summer school courses in 2004, 2005 and 2006. The settlement ends two classaction law suits launched by one parent in Vancouver and another in Coquitlam. The Coquitlam suit named as

defendants all of the school boards in British Columbia who charged tuition fees for summer school courses leading to graduation. In each suit, the plaintiff argued that charging fees for these courses was illegal in B.C. Both cases were settled Friday. Chilliwack was among 20 boards that have agreed to make refunds. “It’s another hit to the budget when it does come out,” School District No. 33 secretary treasurer Gerry Slykhuis said of the $66,000. “I don’t know when this will be settled, this

year or next, but it’s certainly going to be another cost that we have to find from somewhere else.” It’s unlikely the education ministry will chip in to cover the costs, Slykhuis said. “Their attitude would be it’s one big pot of education money, so if they take it out of there, it just means we’re getting less somewhere else,” he said. Ministry of Education spokesman Scott Sutherland said the ministry could not comment under the terms of the agreement.

He did say that for 2013, “government will have provided an estimated $14.6 million to school districts to help about 48,000 school-age students take summer learning courses.” The application to certify the class-action lawsuit was filed in 2009, two years after then-education minister Shirley Bond ordered school districts to stop charging tuition for students attending summer school for academic credit. She said the fees — which ranged from $200 to $500 a course — were illegal. She ordered districts to refund

all such fees in 2007. The class-action suit argued that if the fees were illegal in 2007, they were also illegal in preceding years (subject to the statute of limitations). Under the settlement, parents who paid tuition for summer school remedial and graduation completion courses will be mailed a claim form allowing them to choose either a 70 per cent refund or a 100-percent credit toward tuition in other courses. A 25-per-cent legal fee will be deducted and paid to Poyner Baxter LLP, which represented the plaintiffs. - with files from Tracy Sherlock, Vancouver Sun.

◗ Opinion

What’s old is new again In light of the decision by the CJHL to institute the one-fight rule in Junior A hockey, we thought we would revisit a column the Times first ran on Jan. 3, 2012 by Tyler Olsen. oncussions happen in hockey for a variety of reasons and can take a range of forms: severe or mild, recurring or isolated. But a couple things are certain: concussions are caused by blows to the head and multiple concussions can result in long-term brain damage. Hockey, like most sports, carries with it a risk of concussions; but it’s usually an acceptable risk. Physical activity is typically good for a person’s physical and mental health. As a gym-hater, I’d probably weigh 300 pounds were it not for hockey or soccer. The inherent risk of concussions is thus acceptable to me. Another undisputable fact: second-for-second, fighting—with its stress on repeatedly punching one’s opponent in the (preferably helmetless) head—carries a much greater risk for concussions. I used to like watching fights. But as the consequences of hockey-related concussions have come to light, public entertainment no longer seems like a justifiable reason for allowing fighting in hockey. And there is also little reason to believe the only other semi-plausible excuse—that fighting allows

C

TYLER OLSEN

Win,Lose orTy players to police themselves. The NHL playoffs feature few fights and some of that league’s biggest cheap-shot artists never fight. It’s like a criminal code that the worst offenders can simply opt out of. But fighting remains entertaining for many, and professional and junior leagues continue to allow and sometimes even promote it. Worst of all, for many young, underskilled hockey players, the fame and fortune of the NHL obscures the long-term damage that can result when a player tries to fight his way to the big leagues. That’s the most worrying part of fighting: that it provides an incentive for teenagers (a demographic known for its risk-taking ways) to jeopardize their future health in the name of fame and the public’s love. You can’t really blame kids for not knowing better. But you can blame the adults who continue to facilitate such activities with the full-knowledge of the ramifications. The BCHL deserves praise for its (relative) lack of complicity.

The number of fights in BCHL hockey games has been morethan halved since the Chiefs left Chilliwack in 2006. This year, the Chiefs do not employ a tough guy who seeks to impress scouts by fighting. Chilliwack players have accumulated just 13 fighting majors so far this season. The regular and pre-planned brain-bashing has been, if not eliminated, at least curtailed. But the Western Hockey League that hockey fans watched last year deserves massive condemnation. The number of fights in that league hasn’t changed in a decade, despite all the warning signs that something must be done—and despite other highlevel junior leagues’ action. Last year’s Chilliwack Bruins fought 90 times, with Tim Traber and Curt Gogol fighting 11 and 13 times respectively. Neither will ever be a skilled National Hockey League player. But both clearly seek to impress scouts with their fists. For Gogol, it worked, earning the 20-year-old a spot on the San Jose Sharks’s farm team, for whom he has already fought 12 times this year. Traber meanwhile, has scored once and fought nine more times this season. The Western Hockey League has allowed Traber to drop the gloves 29 times since 2009. And finally, in January, he will turn 19 and be legally allowed to drink in a bar.

hat annual scary-yet-fun time of year is upon us when the little ones dress up as monsters, mythical creatures, heroes, villains, role models and TV characters. Halloween is one of the most fun days of the year for children, but it can also be a little scary for parents knowing their kids are literally running around and across city streets at dusk. The opportunity for danger couldn’t be more obvious on the streets, so here are a few tips from BC Transit for drivers who happen to be out in the early evening on Thursday: ◗ Drive slowly in residential areas where children are more likely to be trick-ortreating; ◗ Reduce your distractions and stay alert; ◗ Remember to enter and exit intersections and driveways slowly and carefully; ◗ Watch out for children who may be wearing masks that make it difficult for them to see; ◗ Expect the unexpected. In the Halloween excitement, children may forget simple pedestrian safety rules and dart out between parked vehicles. And some tips for everyone else: ◗ All BC Transit buses are safe places for children who may be lost or separated from their group; ◗ Young children should be accompanied by an adult or responsible older child since they lack the developmental skills to cross the street on their own; ◗ Ghosts and goblins must be seen to be scary. Incorporate visibility aids in to all costumes; ◗ Teach your child to stop at the curb, look left, right and left again, and to listen for oncoming traffic ◗ Always cross at intersections, crosswalks or street corners ◗ Remind children—never enter anyone’s house or vehicle ◗ Only visit homes that are visibly participating in Halloween—decorated and lights on Have fun and be safe on Halloween.

Blame the breeders, but don’t blame the pit bulls

Editor: Re: Pit bulls are bred to kill, Chilliwack Times Oct. 24. For a newspaper to print such an uneducated and reckless statement is shocking to say the least. Owners and advocates of pit bulls should be ignored? Ban all pit bulls and the problem goes away? Have you done your research? Or have you just jumped on the hate train with no knowledge of the breed? Pit bulls from reputable breeders are not bred to fight and kill. They are loyal lovable members of families. Scumbags breed pit bulls to kill, scumbags looking to make a quick buck instead of making a real living breed them to fight. Do you even know which breed out of all breeds bites the most? Cocker spaniels. But because they are a smaller dog and it doesn’t make news it’s not reported by the media. Shame on you for printing such an uneducated narrow-minded view on a breed you apparently know nothing about. No dog is born vicious people make them that way. Responsible loving owners don’t. Do your homework on where the breed came from and then reprint the truth, not your version of it but the documented truth. How about we ban all pedophiles and murderers and rapists instead of letting them loose in

“Journeying from jazz to classical music, MG3 captures melodies from around the globe.”

Electric light rail systems aren’t held hostage by fuel costs, and they’re also great for our environment. One train can move many people with one driver, and trains almost always run on time. There are many benefits to developing the rail line between our two communities. I haven’t even touched on the health issues, universal access and economic growth benefits to local small businesses that surrounds rail stations. Why our councillors are not seriously considering light rail is a mystery. Light rail should be tabled as the best way to building a sophisticated and permanent solution to our congested and dangerous highway. Robbin Yager Chilliwack

necting public transit. The count of 27,200 daily trips is a bit shocking to read. (Re: Abby council puts brakes on bus, Chilliwack Times, Oct. 24). Buses are a great short-term solution but very costly compared to another solution thats ready to be developed right now. I’m talking about the unused passenger designated rail line that runs right into the very heart of both communities, crossing major roads and local transit lines, as well as going through Yarrow and nearby Greendale. That’s right, we have designated passenger rail ready to go between Abby and the Wack. You drive over those rails every day on Vedder and Evans Road. All that’s needed is development of passenger stations and parking, and a few road crossing upgrades, and purchase of the train(s). It’s been proven that light rail (at grade, not Skytrain) is the most cost-effective transit system in the world that can pay for itself over time (www.railforthevalley.com). Yes, the initial first-time cost for this will be very expensive. But compared to buses, light rail lasts for many decades with much lower long-term upkeep and operating costs. Trains can also run in all kinds of weather including snow and when the highway is blocked.

A police accident reconstruction concluded O’Hern had been riding on the wrong side of the road when he was hit. Johnstone had originally been charged with hit and run under the Criminal Code, but the Crown later opted to proceed under the Motor Vehicle Act because there wasn’t enough evidence to prove Johnstone had left the scene to evade civil or criminal liability. “We proceeded under the Motor Vehicle Act as that seem to best fit the facts we were able to establish beyond a

Gunnell asked for a $350 fine, stating there should be “absolutely no driving prohibition whatsoever.” In giving his reasons for the $350 fine, judge Roger Cutler sympathized with O’Hern’s family, calling their victim impact statements “heart wrenching” and O’Hern’s death “tragic and horrific.” “Sadly the court can not alter the wrong which has occurred,” Cutler said.

But O’Hern’s family and friends, including his girlfriend Debbie Smith, who was among the first on the scene after the accident, were angered by the decision. “I feel like they failed us,” Smith said.

Fighting ban may soon be in effect BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack Chief fans who like to see players drop their gloves and go toe-to-toe may soon be out of luck as a ban on fighting is on the horizon. The board of directors of the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL)—the organization made up of all 10 Junior A hockey leagues in the country—has “overwhelmingly” voted in favour of the so-called one-fight rule. The controversial rule, currently used in five of the 10 leagues but not the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), gives players who fight an automatic game misconduct penalty in addition to the standard five-minute major penalty. In the BCHL and four other leagues a player is ejected automatically after the second fight. Chiefs coach Harvey Smyl told the Times he did not agree with the one-fight rule since the league has already been adhering to a supplementary discipline policy that cracks down on a number of actions such as staged fights and retaliatory fights. “It eliminates a lot of the fighting that does happen, that should not be part of the game,” Smyl said Thursday. “I don’t see us having that problem [with too many fights] right now. Our team doesn’t have a whole lot of fights.” In April 2012, BCHL commissioner John Grisdale was in Chilliwack and he, too, expressed opposition to the one-fight rule. See FIGHTING, Page 12

A

grinding work effort, lots of shots on net and stellar goaltending helped the Chilliwack Chiefs get back on track, winning two out of three games on the weekend. All three games were hardfought, one-goal games starting with a disappointing 2-1 loss Friday night against the visiting Cowichan Valley Capitals. Brand new Chief Quentin McShane—who didn’t even have his name on the back of his jersey—was the bright light in that game as he put a quick snapshot past Robin Gusse at 8:38 of the first period. The fire of elation was quickly extinguished as Capital Myles Powell put one past Lyndon Stanwood just eight seconds later to tie the game. The game got rough when Chief

Winning streak! Just a modest two-game variety, but it’s a step in the right direction

T.J. Roche kneed Sam Curleigh at 13:43, which spurred a fight with he and Brayden Gelsinger. Gelsinger got five for fighting, two for instigating and a game misconduct. Roche got five for fighting and two for kneeing. Worth noting is that if this incident happens next year (see accompanying story this page), Roche would also get a game misconduct for the fight. Before the kneeing incident, Curleigh had scored the go-ahead goal, which, along with Capital keeper Robin Gusse’s first-star effort, would be enough for the visitors to win.

Saturday night back at Prospera Centre the Chief finally earned a home win against the Surrey Eagles, the team’s third victory of the season. Carter Cochrane opened the scoring from Mathieu Tibbet and Andrew Silard at 3:29 of the first, the only goal in the period. Blake Gober would make it 2-0 for the home team on a goal from Zach Diamantoni and Austin Plevy at 7:59 of the second. The Eagles weren’t giving up and scored two of their own, including a power play goal to tie it at 17:22 of the second while Cochrane was

in the box. But it was during another penalty-kill halfway into the third that captain Plevy poked the puck away from the defenceman at the blue line, broke in all alone and undressed Bo Didur on a beautiful play. That was enough for the local boys to win 3-2, and salute the fans after the game for the first time this year. Less than 24 hours later, the local boys were in Coquitlam to take on the Express in an afternoon game that didn’t start well. The home team opened the scoring at 5:21 of the first and then added a second a minute-and-a-half later. Then it was McShane’s turn to score a shorthanded goal and to show he belongs on the team. Coquitlam made it 3-1 just 3:36 into the second but it was all Chiefs after that. See STREAK, Page 12

FIGHTING, from page 11 “[We] feel fighting is only one aspect and throwing a player out after one fight may not be what’s best for the game,” he said at the time. Asked why players should not be ejected after a single game, Grisdale said: “Players will retaliate in other ways, maybe using their stick and other matters if they feel they’ve been aggrieved. Our feeling is having that threat of having to drop your gloves and fight is not necessarily the worst thing in the world.” Smyl agreed with the latter statement. “It eliminates a lot of the good hardworking hockey, the physical type of play. There is more stickwork. Guys become more, I don’t know, guys become more stupid and it leads to a different style of hockey.” A year ago Grisdale said the supplementary discipline policy had already eliminated the “things that 99 per cent of the fans don’t want to see” such as multiple fights and staged fights. According to hockeyfights.com, the Chilliwack Chiefs had 33 fights in 2012-13. Tanner Cochrane’s five tilts led the way, followed by Brodyn Nielsen’s four, and three each for David Thompson, Jaret Babych, Kiefer McNaughton and Tanner Burns. Of those fights, Smyl said supplementary disSTREAK, from page 11 At 11:03 of the second Jaret Babych scored assisted by Jake Hand.

Whether or not the one-fight rule will be in place for 2014/2015 is not entirely certain as CJHL president Kirk Lamb told the Times the decision will first be brought forward to Hockey Canada. “Timing of implementation of rules can’t be determined until that discussion takes place with all of our partners,” he said via email.

Jeannie Savard and her family work to put on a haunted house every Halloween to help raise money for charity.

Scaring up some charity BY SHARRON HO Chilliwack Times

T

wo local women have transformed their homes into hovels of horror—yet again—in support of local causes in Chilliwack. Jeannie Savard has been putting together haunted attractions for the last 25 years, five of which have been in Chilliwack. She converts the front yard and lower half of her residence on Promotory Mountain into Jeannie’s Haunted House. Planned a year in advance, the haunt boasts 13 elaborate scenes, including a scarecrow pumpkin patch, witch’s lair, science lab, 10-foot pirate ship, werewolf family, zombie mermaid’s hot tub and “surprise” ending. Actors dressed up in frightening garb will mill about the property and bring the scenes to life. “I started really small out here in Chilliwack and now it’s right through my house,” Savard said.”It just got bigger and bigger.” Depending on the weather, the event sees between 200 to more than 500 visitors on average. “I just love it,” Savard said. “I do it mainly

for my followers and the children.” Although entrance is free, Savard requests that people donate a can of pet food or money if possible. All proceeds are given to the Chilliwack BC SPCA. “That’s really what keeps me going, is helping the community and raising funds,” she said. “Animals are really an important part of our family.” Check out Jeannie’s Haunted House at 5379 Westwood Dr. on Oct. 31 from 5 to 9 p.m. Resident Corene Cronin has been hosting her annual fundraising food drive, the Nightmare’s Haunted House at 46602 Yale Rd., for more than 10 years. “It costs one can of food to get through the door, and you generally leave screaming,” Cronin wrote on Facebook. “But don’t be afraid to bring the little ones, as we make sure not to scare them as much.”

◗ The haunt will be open on Oct. 31 from 7 to 10 p.m.and cost of admission is a can of food. The food will donated to three local families, who were selected by Cronin.

Custom Printers, The Chilliwack Times, Adapted for the English-speaking stage, this 1960’s French farce, written by playwright March Camoletti, features characters in comic situations that still remain wildly entertaining. For all our incredible social and technological advancements, a good slapstick comedy can still exemplify those lusty qualities in human nature that are sure to get us into outlandish trouble.

Tour Sponsor; Sandman Inn, The Department of Canadian Heritage, The City of Chilliwack, The British Columbia Arts Council, and The Province of British Columbia.

Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the planet’s most performed French play Boeing, Boeing is a frisky comedy that will leave your sides aching from laughter as turbulence builds, and this worldly architect desperately tries to keep each lady from discovering the others.

Driver cheats death BY SHARRON HO Chilliwack Times

A

local man driving to work escaped death on Monday after a massive tree came crashing down on Yale Road East near Reeves Road. It was a regular, early morning commute to work for 41-year-old Jeff Brown, as he travelled east on Yale Road East at 5:30 a.m. That is until he looked up and saw a “humongous” tree about to fall right on top of him. “It’s just amazing. A big tree just comes out of nowhere. I must’ve heard it because I looked up when it was coming down and I was like ‘Holy, shit. Here goes.’”

Wind-toppled massive tree nearly crushed man on his way to work

Brown swerved out of the way, narrowly missing a tree and mail box on the other side of the road, as the tree, which he estimates was about 30 to 40 feet in height and 25 feet in width, fell over. “Five seconds too late and I would’ve been crushed,” he said. “There must’ve been an angel sitting on my back, I tell you. There was so much potential for so many things to go wrong at that moment.” Brown crashed the front-end of his 1994 Toyota Corolla and blew out a tire in

the process. The damage is so severe, he doesn’t believe it will be salvaged. Although a little shaken up, Brown was in good spirits and laughed at his good luck. “Closest I’ve been to near death in my life.” Brown suspects the fallen tree, which obstructed the entire road and almost caused multiple accidents, was pushed over by strong winds that plagued the Chilliwack area that morning. According to the public works department, the tree was removed at 7:30 a.m.
