Richard and Jacqueline Boer watch as their son, Cohen, 5, leans in to say hello to Otis, a family favourite calf, along with their two other children, three-year-old Kesler (centre), and Kaelen, 7, on Dec. 16 at Elmido Farms. BY SHARRON HO Chilliwack Times

A

local couple is in the running for a prestigious award that re cognizes young farmers who uphold outstanding conservation, community-relations and business practices. Jacqueline and Richard Boer are finalists for the 2014 BC & Yukon Outstanding Young Farmer Award, which makes them the second area-farmers to be shortlisted in the last two years, after Peter and Nicole Tuytel won the award in 2012.

Third-generation dairy farmers honoured to be up for prestigious Outstanding Young Farmer Award Jacqueline, 31, was born and raised on Elmido Farms in Chilliwack and husband Richard, 30, grew up on a dairy farm in Agassiz. Both are third-generation dairy farmers and family shareholders of Elmido Farms, which they have been operating alongside family for the last eight years. “I was surprised that we got nominated because I think what we do is

fairly ordinary in the realm of farming,” Jacqueline says. “I think we would like to win but it’s an opportunity . . . and just an honour to be able to go out and be involved in the process.” Together with Jacqueline’s parents and her three brothers, the Boers take on the task of managing a dairy farm with 320 registered, purebred holstein dairy cows—the clas-

sic dairy cow with black and white colouring—on their sprawling 350acre property that borders Evans and Lickman Roads. The property is divided into two farms, with cows on the larger farm currently producing 37.8 litres of milk a day on average, and the smaller, 27 litres. The husband and wife team are also co-operators of the Lower Nico-

la Cattle Company in Merritt, where their young stock of cattle reside. In May 2013, they diversified into specialty broiler production with the establishment of Brightside Poultry. As Elmido’s herd manager, Richard takes care of farm operations and everything related to animal health, husbandry and welfare. “I’m in charge of everything with a heartbeat,” Richard says. “I have people that help me milk the cows, and I have a really good herdsman that helps me manage counting cows and See FARMERS, Page 23

The extremely contagious virus, which affects gastrointestinal systems, is even worse this year due to a new strain against which people have not built immunity. Birchwood Retirement Suites dealt with an outbreak of its own, with around 15 residents exhibiting symptoms of the virus.

Jan. 10 The Chilliwack school board is being tight-lipped about its response to a Ministry of Education request for B.C. school boards to find savings to pay for salary increases for support staff. The board held in-camera meeting on the issue, but would not say whether they opted to follow the B.C. government’s request to eliminate 1.5 per cent from this year’s budget ($300,000) and another 1.5 per cent in next year’s, or write a letter to the minister of education in opposition.

Jan. 15 Chilliwack’s “Grand Lady” has passed. Retired city councillor Dorothy Kostrzewa died on Friday at the age of 84. The tributes to the beloved local personally poured out online and through social media over the weekend.

Jan. 15 A Chilliwack family is recovering after two armed men stormed into their house Saturday evening and demanded money. Just after 11 p.m., the men—one armed with a handgun, the other with a machete-like knife—kicked open the door of a house in the 44000 block of Bayshore Drive. The robbers made off with thousands of dollars worth of high-end computers, phone and camera equipment.

Jan. 17 The growing toll of influenza has forced Fraser Health to declare the flu a “health hazard” and impose restrictions at residential care facilities throughout the valley. Fraser Health says 19 long-term care facilities have reported outbreaks of the flu this year. That number is twice as many as reported in the previous three years combined.

Jan. 17 A 54-year-old Chilliwack woman found unresponsive close to the CN tracks west of Broadway on Tuesday was transported to hospital where she was pronounced dead. It appears that no train was involved in the incident as emergency personnel contacted CN to notify them to stop trains. Police say the incident does not appear to be suspicious.

Jan. 22 Chilliwack New Democrats chose former Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic as their candidate for the May 14 provincial election on Saturday. MacAhonic faced off against Fraser Valley Regional District Area A

director Dennis Adamson, who had previously lost to Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony for the NDP nomination for the 2012 by-election.

Jan. 22 On Friday, politicians, health officials, local stakeholders, community organizers and government functionaries gathered to celebrate the start of a renovation project and the imminent opening of the much-talked about Health Contact Centre. Billed as a “one-stop shop” for homeless, mentally ill and addicted people, the health contact centre will include 22 supportive housing apartments and a broad range of health and community support services.

Jan. 24 Following a year-long investigation, Chilliwack RCMP raided a pair of massage parlours they say were operating as bawdy houses.

Chilliwack’s residential property values are virtually unchanged from a year ago. Most owners of single-family homes should see no change at all in the value of their properties in the 2013 assessment notices they should receive in the next few days. John Green, deputy assessor for BC Assessment, said the market is relatively stable and there are going to be no big surprises.

Jan. 24 A judge condemned the friends and family of a convicted pedophile last month after they sought to excuse the man’s behaviour by blaming his victim. The 32-year-old man, who can’t be named because of a publication ban, had pleaded guilty to sexual interference of a person under the age of 16. According to the decision, the man repeatedly had sex with his 13-year-old daughter over the course of several months. The judge admonished family and community members, including two pastors, who filed letters of support for the man, saying he had been “tricked” and that the victim was “promiscuous.”

February Feb. 5 Activists opposed to salmon farming recently staged the second of three planned protests at major Chilliwack retailers on Friday. The Chilliwack chapter of Salmon Feedlot Boycott have been hosting peaceful protests at stores that sell Atlantic farmed salmon, with the most recent demonstration taking place at Walmart at Eagle Landing.

Feb. 5 Chilliwack man Marc Joseph Cadieux was sentenced to more than a year in jail after pleading guilty to one count of impersonating an officer using a uniform and one count of using an imitation firearm to commit an offence in Provincial Court on Thursday. Cadieux was apprehended by police after he attempted to steal an ATM machine at a local gas station in May, while dressed as a police officer. Cadieux was accompanied by another man at the time.

Feb. 7 A battle is brewing between Chilliwack and the local health authority after Fraser Health told council that the city must begin chlorinating its water. Citing the discovery of E.coli in the Chilliwack water system over three of the last four summers, Fraser Health told council the city will be required to add chlorine to its water. Council questioned the necessity of adding chlorine to the water system and held a staunch position against the idea.

Feb. 7 Three different monuments testifying to Chilliwack’s vibrant military history at CFB Chilliwack are being given new life by local donors and the CFB Chilliwack Historical Society. The historical society is raising money to restore the 63-year-old saluting base that currently sits on University of Fraser Valley grounds beside Caen Road. The society is selling engraved bricks and hopes to raise $25,000 towards the monument’s refurbishment.

Border tax should be deported

I

n a year where TransLink apologists seemed to have thrown every possible tax grab—sales tax hikes, vehicle levies, road pricing, carbon tax—at the wall to see if anything would stick, one idea stood above the rest for its sheer ludicrousness. The envelope please . . . “The award for the dumbest public policy suggestion of 2013 goes to . . . (dramatic pause) the TransLink border tax!” This toll-the-borders loser was suggested at one of the dozen or so transportation summits/conferences/ gabfests funded by your tax dollars this year. While initially pooh-poohed as “a bit tongue in cheek” by attendees such as NDP MLA Selina Robinson, the idea continues to surface in the media and has even been sent south for some number crunching. Essentially, a toll would be slapped on B.C. drivers just before they crossed the border into the United States from Point Roberts to Sumas. Toll booths would be set up on 264th Street, 176th Street, Highway 99, Highway 11, and 56th Street. A U.S. organization claims such a $5 roundtrip toll could generate $38 million for TransLink. There is no doubt that lower gas taxes are drawing Canadians south. In May, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation released calculations showing that the untaxed cost of gasoline is virtually identical between Blaine, WA, and Surrey, B.C. It is the 34 cents/litre gas tax gap that makes Washington State gasoline so attractive—saving drivers roughly $18 per fill-up.

JORDAN BATEMAN

Be Our Guest Add in the savings on groceries, milk, cheese, flights, and consumer goods, and it’s no wonder why Whatcom County is seeing its highest number of Canadian visitors since the mid-1990s. But the solution to the gas tax gap is not to tax Canadians even more; the better plan to address Canadian issues like the federal government charging GST on gas purchases—a tax-on-tax. The TransLink border tax is rubbish, but keeps getting media attention. Main proponent Eric Doherty, who holds an M.A. in planning and is a former director of both the BC Sustainable Energy Association and Society Promoting Environmental Conservation, is over the top in his push for this silly plan: “There’s a perception that whatever we do needs to be fair,” he said. “And it’s not fair that people are evading paying their fair share of taxes.” Hear that, Canadians? Every time you cross the border, according to Doherty, you are breaking the law by “evading” taxes. You’re just like Leona Helmsley, Martha Stewart, Al Capone, Heidi Fleiss, Pete Rose, O.J. Simpson and other famous tax evaders. Such a statement is utter non-

sense, of course. There is nothing illegal about crossing a border. Undoubtedly Mr. Doherty must also think those who buy local craft beer are also evil “tax evaders” as they pay less taxes than if they had purchased one of the big name brands. You can bet proponents won’t stop at tolling the U.S. border. In their minds, Lower Mainlanders who go east for cheaper gas must also be “tax evaders.” After all, from 2007 to 2010, Abbotsford’s population grew 5.3 per cent, while diesel and gasoline sales grew 16.8 per cent. Perhaps border tax proponents should also consider taxing every road in and out of the TransLink taxation area. Roads to and from Mission better get taxed too. From 2007 to 2010, the TransLink tax-free community grew 3.6 per cent in population, while fuel sales jumped 14.7 per cent. This year, B.C. taxpayers have endured property tax hikes, BC Hydro increases, ICBC rate hikes, MSP premium increases, TransLink tax and fare hikes, CPP and EI premium increases, BC Ferries fare hikes, and a myriad of other increases handed down by various government agencies. The sooner TransLink supporters understand that everyday Canadians are stretched thin, the quicker we can move on to figuring out how TransLink can live within its means. ◗ Jordan Bateman is the British Columbia director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

Instead offering any sort of meaningful reform or choosing to adequately fund CPP so that Canadians can expect to be taken care of—after having spent a lifetime of paying taxes—the Conservatives instead opted to do nothing, and presumably hope the problem just goes away. It’s no secret that CPP is underfunded. And given the country’s demographics —with millions of Canadians facing retirement in coming years—this is an issue that can’t be put off any longer. Seniors now make up close to 15 per cent of Canada’s population, totalling more than four million people. And with the median age in Canada now over 40 years old for the first time ever, the issue of our aging population and how to take care of them isn’t going away. The issue is clear to see: Canadians are living longer, and as a result, drawing on CPP more than in generations past. As a result, we need to do a better job of funding CPP if we want it to work. Finance minister Jim Flaherty needn’t worry about his own financial future, of course. As an MP who has served more than six years in the house of commons, Flaherty has a gold-plated taxpayer-funded pension to draw on for the rest of his life, upon his retirement. The rest of us aren’t so lucky. Adequately funding CPP is the fiscally responsible thing to do, but it is also politically difficult. As a result, the Conservatives have taken the easy way out, opting for the instant gratification of low taxes in the present at the cost of a stable future for our citizens. And isn’t that how we got into this mess in the first place?

Just trying to do the right thing Editor: I am wondering why the RCMP are always asking for the public’s help to solve a case and when I give it they turn on me. I was tailgated by a fully loaded tandem dump with pup, idiot trucker on Highway 1 and decided to use my cellphone to gather the evidence the police are continuously asking for. The trucker saw me videoing his stupidity and unbeknownst to me, called the highway patrol and said I was the cause of this tailgating by spiking my brakes, a lie, and driving erratically, also a lie. I got pulled over by highway patrol 25 minutes later. I was not breaking any laws when pulled over, and the first thing the cop asked was, “was I using my phone to video this idiot tailgating me?” I said, “yes” and she said, “That’s a ticket for using a device while driving.” I said, “give me the ticket and we’ll see each other again in court,” as I have 10 times the training as a driver than any cop and looked forward to arguing my case in court. I never got the ticket or anything else for that matter. Anyhow, the cops didn’t care about my evidence and this idiot dump-truck driver goes

free to try and kill somebody else with his stupidity. So in a nutshell, the cops only want help for solving a crime that makes them look good and to heck with everything else. Quite the double standard, eh? Terry Schneider Chilliwack

Therapy needs to remain free Editor: Why is it when you have an anxiety disorder, depression, you shake, stutter, you take your meds from your doctor. It gets worse, so he sends you to a psychiatrist. He tells you you need 20 weeks of one-hour-a-week with a therapist. You try, and find out it isn’t free anymore. One of our genius cutbacks. I used to be very outgoing and social, I am now 73 and a recluse, with only worse things to look forward to. I live on $1,500 a month and cannot pay for a therapist.

YEARINREVIEW FEBRUARY, from page 7

Feb. 21 The number of licensed medical marijuana growers in Chilliwack has tripled since last year. According to figures obtained through an Access to Information request in January 2012, 193 residents were licensed to produce marijuana for medical purposes. As of last week, there were 513 individuals in Chilliwack who hold personal use production licences (PUPL), and 77 who hold designated person production licenses (DPPL), which, if last year’s figure includes PUPLs and DPPLs, is approximately a three-fold or 206 per cent increase.

Feb. 21 A Prairie Central Road house destined to go up in flames burned to the ground on Monday evening, but not in the way the Chilliwack Fire Department had hoped. Fire officials planned to use the unoccupied house in training exercises that would’ve included a live fire, but arsonists got to it first. When crews extinguished the blaze, the house was completely destroyed.

Feb. 26 For the second year in a row, efforts to carve out a two-week spring break for the Chilliwack school district have failed because negotiations

According to a staff report, there was “significant” dialogue between the Chilliwack Teacher’s Association and CUPE, but a “satisfactory agreement could not be reached” in time to present that option to the board for the next year.

Chiefs snap 11-game skid by walking all over Trail BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack Chiefs had dreams of pucks bulging twine over Christmas after a stunning last game before the holidays to break an 11-game losing streak. Led by Mathieu Tibbet’s four goals and a seven-goal team output in the first period, the Chiefs destroyed the visiting Trail Smoke Eaters 13-5 at Prospera Centre Saturday night. While the Smoke Eaters were the only team in the league with a worse record, few could have expected a game that included 20 Chiefs’ shots in the first period and four goals in six minutes. After a spell of loss after loss, the win, even

against the lowly Smoke Eaters, will have to boost confidence in a team where it’s been sorely lacking. Friday night the Chiefs lost that 11th straight game 7-2 to the visiting Prince George Spruce Kings at home. That loss was the culmination of three straight losses to the Spruce Kings dating back to last weekend in which they allowed 19 goals and scored eight. Nine different Chiefs scored Saturday against Trail and 16 players notched a goal, an assist or both. In addition to Tibbet, other standouts were Austin Plevy who scored one and had three assists, and Cooper Rush with four assists. ◗ The Chiefs’ next games are both against Surrey, Dec. 28 in Surrey and Dec. 29 back at Prospera.

Thanks Bruce,

I have a young family, a husband and three kids and my life is very complex. I needed choice, customization and spending a lot of money on glasses was something I couldn’t justify. My Great Glasses experience was awesome. I didn’t need an appointment for my eye test and I got three pairs of glasses for less than I paid for one pair at my regular optical store. I couldn’t believe how great the deal was and how accommodating the staff were to me. I will not buy glasses anywhere but Great Glasses in the future.

I’m so glad that Bruce was willing to fight for good customer value.

Sincerely, Amy Gill

YEARINREVIEW March March 5 The owner of an Indian restaurant in Chilliwack who received a racist email last week received messages of apology from the same address Monday morning. Bay Leaf Restaurant owner, Sumit Gulati, told the RCMP about the email in which an anonymous writer said the business, which as been open for more than two years, will fail. Following international media coverage, the writer of the derogatory email apologized, citing he or she was having a bad day and suffers from mental issues.

March 5 Although tests are clear, chlorine continues to be added to Chilliwack’s drinking water. Last Thursday, a day after Chilliwack’s emergency chlorination system was turned on for the first time—due to a low level of E.coli that was found at a test site in Greendale—resampling for E. coli came back clear. An investigation is underway to determine what caused the positive test, and chlorination of the water system will continue until Fraser Health says it is OK to stop.

March 7 Less than 12 hours after he allegedly murdered Robert Jan Planje, Steven Kenneth Frederickson explained the blood on his jeans to a fellow junkie by saying, “some people think because I’m deaf, I’m weak,” according to testimony at his trial Tuesday. Crown counsel alleges Frederickson beat Planje to death in the early morning hours of Dec. 13, 2010. The testimony was given by Michelle Bakstad, a former drug addict, who told the court she saw Frederickson the morning of Dec. 13, 2010 at a crack house with damaged knuckles and bloodied jeans.

A former City of Chilliwack employee is alleged to have stolen thousands of dollars of cash from the Chilliwack RCMP detachment’s main exhibit room. A routine audit of the exhibit room found $37,000 Cdn, $46 US and nearly $4,000 in Government of Canada cheques were missing. Jamie Tiller, 36, has been charged with theft over $5,000.

Chilliwack Mounties are asking the author of a number of racist emails aimed at the South Asian community to come forward. Two local Indian restaurants, Shandahar Hut and The Bay Leaf, and Chilliwack Taxi received emails that contained racist and derogatory remarks.

To the disappointment of council, the Fraser Health Authority (FHA) issued formal notice that a secondary disinfectant is required to be added to Chilliwack’s drinking water on March 7. Continued chlorination or secondary disinfectant of the water system will be required after fecal coliform and E. coli has been detected in Chilliwack’s water system over the years, said FHA chief medical officer Dr. Paul Van Buynder.

Local kayakers are opposed to a plan to install a run-of-river power project on Tamihi Creek, a popular run in the Chilliwack River Valley, after pink flagging tape was found in the area. KMC Energy, a subsidiary of WindRiver Power Corp., successfully bid to install the project on the creek during BC Hydro’s 2006 call for tenders of independent power projects. When contacted by the Times, WindRiver confirmed the project is in pre-consultation stages.

A medical marijuana grow operation producing nearly 15 times more than allowed by Health Canada has been busted in Chilliwack.

❄ ❄ ❄ After quickly recovering the body of a 40-year-old Chilliwack woman from a pickup truck that plunged into the Fraser River on March 10, police have called off their search for a man, who they believe was also in the vehicle. Divers scoured the bottom of the river and SONAR was used to probe beneath an underwater debris field, but the man’s body was not found, leading to the search being called off.

YEARINREVIEW April April 2 Honey, a four-year-old chihuahua that stepped in to rescue 8-year-old Jenna during a pit bull attack, was recognized with a “Small Dog, Big Hero” from PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) a week after the incident. In addition to a certificate of honour, Honey’s family was given a bag of vegan dog treats, a new harness and a toy.

April 2 The Indigenous Maps, Films, Rights and Land Claims program at the University of the Fraser Valley will run for the fourth time in Chilliwack this summer. The four-week intensive program was launched four years ago to give people interested in land claims some essential background on how First Nations lands and resources were first taken away and the different methods aboriginal people have used to get them back.

April 4 Mayor Sharon Gaetz said a number of communities in the interior have watched closely as the City of Chilliwack battled the Fraser Health Authority over the water chlorination edict. Reporting back from the recent Municipal Finance Authority of BC meeting, Gaetz told council that the Interior Health Authority and some regional districts were “keenly aware” of what happened in Chilliwack, with some districts even talking about hiring lawyers to “protect their interests.”

April 4 Patricia Jones hasn’t seen the cat in nine months. Jones said the animal sleeps in the living room and eats the cat food that is set out for it. But verifying that assertion is difficult because of the mountains of trash that have taken over the downtown Chilliwack home. The Chilliwack home of Patricia, 90, and her 56-year-old son Glen (not their real names) is a death trap.

April 9 Tamihi Creek, the location of a proposed 15-megawatt power project, has become a “poster child” for British Columbia waterways endangered by independent power projects, according to a provincial recreation group. The popular kayaking creek—

April 9 A local family was awarded $3.2 million in damages after the Supreme Court of Canada unanimously restored a decision this month against an obstetrician, William G. Johnston, for breaching standard of care during their daughter’s birth in 1998. Cassidy Ediger, 15, suffered from permanent brain damage due to a botched delivery and now lives with spastic quadriplegia and cerebral palsy. The money, which was awarded after a 12-year-long battle, will allow her family to care for her at home.

April 11 Corn farmer Gord Mitchell said he will physically stop natural gas pipeline owner, Spectra, from coming

onto his property if the company is not willing to negotiate. Specta is due to replace three kilometres of pipeline on a stretch that runs from just west of Prest Road across Luckakuck Way and through the Cottonwood Mall parking lot in June. The pipeline also runs beneath corn fields owned by Mitchell. The farmer has had an unhappy relationship with Spectra since they performed an emergency dig in 2011 during spring planting season, leading to topsoil damage and missed planting.

April 11 A driver involved in a deadly 2011 crash in Harrison Hot Springs that killed a Delta teen and injured another woman has pleaded guilty to two charges. Suhkvir Singh Grewal entered guilty pleas Tuesday to charges of dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm in connection to a crash on June 4, 2011, that killed 19-year-old Drew Helgason and injured Courtney Lewis.

In one final act in the dying hours of his tenure as Chilliwack’s representative in Victoria, John Les has helped secure $1 million in funding for the new agriculture training facility at the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) campus at Canada Education Park. Les secured funding through the Ministry of Advanced Education to build dedicated greenhouses, labs and classroom space for the agriculture/horticulture program.

Desperate to start a family after nearly two decades together, Arthur Adams and Toni Grenier were thrilled when they learned they qualified for vitro fertilization. There was only one hitch: a $15,000 price tag. One week later, through a miraculous stroke of luck, Adams was standing at Chance Casino with a cheque for $10,000 in his hands.

April 16 Chilliwack man Jerry Lee Elliott was convicted Friday of aggravated assault in a brutal beating that left his victim with a fractured skull. At trial, the court heard that Douglas Hiatt had stopped his car on Chilliwack River Road on Oct. 29, 2010, only to be set upon by two men. Hiatt was dragged from his car and beaten with what may have been a hammer and suffered injuries that cause seizures and headaches that continue to this day. Elliott will be sentenced at a later date.

BC Liberal leader Christy Clark’s campaign bus went to Langley Concrete to talk about jobs, the economy and the risk of voting NDP, while BC NDP leader Adrian Dix went to Chilliwack candidate Patti MacAhonic’s campaign office with Chilliwack-Hope incumbent Gwen O’Mahony to rally the troops for the 28-day election campaign, which started Tuesday.

APRIL, from page 18 The owner of a new downtown Chilliwack pub is frustrated that the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch (LCLB) has forced him to close his doors this weekend due to what he says is a clerical error. After months of back and forth with the LCLB in an attempt to get the liquor licence transferred to his name, Brad Stuart, District Public House owner, said he is being forced to close April 26, 27 and 28 as a penalty for serving alcohol in a prohibited area of the pub. Stuart said the province never issued anything to show him the area in question was unlicensed.

May 14 A convicted fraudster’s decision to skip his sentencing hearing and leave British Columbia backfired last Friday when he was handed a one-year jail sentence in Supreme Court. Last June, a jury found Marc Colman guilty of defrauding the CFB Chilliwack Historical Society and two banks out of more than $38,000 by writing bad cheques.

May 2 Chilliwack’s Touch-n-Tan 24/7, the first 24-hour, self-serve tanning salon in B.C., is under fire from the member association that advocates on behalf of Canadian tanning salons for offering around-the-clock services. Clients use a special key fob to access tanning beds after hours, which could be 2 a.m. on a holiday or 5 a.m. before the salon opens on a work day. The Joint Canadian Tanning Association wants the B.C. government to ban self-serve tanning, citing room for error.

May 16 John Martin was elected BC Liberal MLA for Chilliwack on May 14 by a surprisingly large margin. Martin took 48 per cent of the approximately 19,500 ballots cast in Chilliwack, 17 points more than his close challenger, New Democrat Patti MacAhonic. Martin’s victory in a long-held BC Liberal riding came alongside a win by fellow Liberal candidate Laurie Throness in Chilliwack-Hope, who garnered more than 9,500 votes, or 49 per cent of the approximately 19,300 ballots.

May 2 Chilliwack Museum and Archives director Ron Denman has spent nearly three decades curating the city’s history. But if all things go according to plan, Denman, 65, will be retiring in late June, which means the search for his replacement is currently underway.

May 16

A Chilliwack man who fled B.C. after being convicted of stealing thousands of dollars from two local non-profits has been arrested in Ontario. Marc Colman was convicted last July of defrauding the Chilliwack Métis Association of more than $33,000 and of defrauding the CFB Chilliwack Historical Society of nearly $8,000 while serving as treasurer of both organizations.

Local parents who have been lobbying the Chilliwack school district for an early French immersion program for almost two years were devastated Tuesday when the school board voted against starting a program anytime soon. A feasibility study recommend the program start no earlier than 2014, but on May 14, the board defeated a motion to start it in 2014. The program is projected to cost $578,035 the first year and $3.9 million over the next five years.

Two people walked away from the crash of a small plane that plowed into a Fairfield Island farmer’s field Thursday afternoon. Locals who saw the accident rushed to the scene and were able to help the two occupants out of the aircraft.

May 9 Riding the bus in Chilliwack is getting easier and easier with more buses running on more routes for longer hours. Changes to the transit system that took effect last summer have proven extremely popular as ridership has increased steadily to the level of 20,000 rides in April, according to BC Transit. According to a three-year transit service plan, more changes are expected, including the extension of the Yale/Vedder route north to the

A Sto:lo woman’s nine-year fight over a few hundred sockeye salmon has ended with absolute discharge and a payout for most of the fish confiscated. After more 200 court appearances, Patricia Kelly was granted absolute discharge in Chilliwack court on May 9, and will be paid $2,484. Kelly was charged with purchasing, selling and possession of fish against the Fisheries Act in 2004. She was convicted in 2008, and then put forth an aboriginal rights defence, which she was in court trying to prove since that time.

May 28 The brother of a Chilliwack man killed last week in a tiny Alberta hamlet said his brother died “honourably” while trying to protect those close to him. Tak Tai Lawrence Leung, 26, died May 18 after being stabbed early that morning at a house party in Gleichen, Alta. Mounties say two women tried to assault Leung’s girlfriend and when Leung intervened, he was stabbed and suffered serious wounds, from which he died.

Mounties in Agassiz continue to hunt for a cowardly robber who grabbed a purse from a disabled woman in a wheelchair on Morrow Road on Friday.

Jerry Awram, owner of Honeyview Farm in Rosedale, says the demand for honeybee hives far outweighs what he’s able to supply. The availability of honeybee hives, used by farmers to pollinate large crops, has been on a slow decline since border regulations implemented in the late ‘80s stopped the import of honeybees. Closures of two honeybee suppliers in Alberta has also increased the demand for Awram’s honeybees. As a result, pollination fees have gone up, and Awram suspects the same will happen to the price of crops in the future.

See it as more a ‘lifestyle’ than a job WHAT’S ON, from page 29 general animal health.” In between milking 320 cows twice a day, overseeing the birth of one to sometimes seven calves daily, 3 a.m. wake-up calls and breakfasts that begin well into the afternoon, the life of a dairy farmer is a hectic one. But in a calm and plain-spoken tone, Richard says it’s a career he always knew he would pursue and one that he enjoys “very much.” “I think being a dairy farmer, it’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle,” he says. A majority of the labour on the farm is undertaken by Richard and family, while Jacqueline handles the paperwork, accounting and administrative tasks. She is also a member of the Chilliwack Agricultural Commission and a past director of the Mainland Milk Producers’ Association. Operating in a fairly urban area, the couple also hosts tours for schools and seniors groups and people who are curious about their family business. “We try and market ourselves, our farm, through farm tours and just having an open door to anybody that stops by,” Richard says. Jacqueline’s grandparents, whom she fondly refers to as

The Boer family are thankful for their parents who made dairy farming possible for them. Opa and Oma, established Elmido Farms in 1960. Her family still lives and operates the business on the same site today. “I think our parents made this lifestyle and business viable for us by keeping their business growing and also by making this lifestyle appealing to us,” Jacqueline says of dairy farming. “We were raised to love it and our kids love it too.” Their three young children, aged three, five and seven, can often be found happily romping around the farm, bottle feeding calves, pushing wheelbarrows full of hay, tugging equipment with their bikes, and petting their family

favourite cows and calves. “They’re such a huge part of what we do,” Jacqueline says. While working with animals is one of the reasons why Richard enjoys what he does, the main perk of being a dairy farmer is: “Being able to spend more time with my kids than most guys.” According to a BC & Yukon Outstanding Farmer press release, nominees will be judged on conservation practices, production history, financial and management practices, and community contributions. There are four finalists vying for the award, and winners will be judged and announced on Jan. 16 in Abbotsford.

June June 4 An ambitious plan to develop a Chilliwack-area ski resort was used by the project’s director to bilk investors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, the B.C. Securities Commission (BSSC) alleges. The commission says Ronald Stephen McHaffie “committed fraud and illegally distributed securities” between August 2007 and January 2012. McHaffie raised about $642,960 from 30 investors by selling shares in BigFoot, which was incorporated in 2003.

June 4 Retired School District No. 33 secretary-treasurer Don Murray had harsh words for the Chilliwack school board last week, taking trustees to task for deficit spending and the frequent turnover of secretary-treasurers. Murray told trustees that a dysfunctional board will get fewer good candidates for job openings than a board that works well together, later saying he was embarrassed by their performance.

June 6 Taxpayer funding for Party in the Park has more than tripled in the three years after city council approved a Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA) request on Tuesday. The BIA received $5,000 in city funding in 2011 for the popular, eight-week event held every Friday night throughout summer at Central Community Park. That rose to $7,000 last year. And while reluctant, council unanimously approved a funding request of $16,000 for 2013.

June 6 Last week, nearly 200 participants at the B.C. Hospice Palliative Care Association’s annual B.C. Hospice Association conference signed up for a workshop that shed light on a unique partnership between the Chilliwack school district and Chilliwack Hospice Society. Last fall, the school district’s work experience department launched a pilot program with the Hospice Society that saw 15 local high school students get hospice training to help them support peers experiencing grief.

Thursday that her life has had no meaning since her only child was killed by Sukhvir Singh Grewal’s dangerous driving in Harrison Hot Springs two years ago. Yvonne Van De Pere said her life was complete before her 19-year-old son, Drew Helgason, jumped into the back of Grewal’s car, along with 16-year-old Courtney Lewis, to go to town to buy cigarettes. But when Grewal lost control of the speeding vehicle around a sharp curve and crashed the car, he didn’t just kill Helgason, Van De Pere said, he killed her too.

Two-year-old Lilee-Jean Putt’s parents desperately want to make the toddler’s last few months alive as full as possible. After battling aggressive brain cancer for nearly two years, LJ’s tumour is back and nothing more can be done. Doctors have said she will be lucky to live past her third birthday on Dec. 5. One last event, the Love for Lilee Fundraiser, is being organized on June 22 at Chances Casino to raise money so the family can be together for LJ’s last days.

Jason Layton’s new downtown food cart, which serves pulled pork sandwiches smoked made in a custom-built smoker, was popular with locals until the city ordered his smoker be turned off. After smoke coming from the contraption received complaints, the city enforced a zoning bylaw that only allows mobile concessions to sell prepared food. Although still in business, Layton said sales have suffered since the

June 18 A German woman is giving thanks to local search and rescue volunteers who rescued her earlier this month after a paragliding crash stranded her 100 feet up in a tree. Rough air and turbulence pushed 51-year-old Karin Schreiber’s paraglider into a large fir tree on June 3. Schreiber said she was taken back by the scale of the search, which lasted seven hours and included crews hiking to the remote location, a helicopter and rappelling rescuers.

June 20 A Chilliwack court heard a horrific tale Tuesday of an ongoing, violent sexual assault of a toddler by her stepfather. An overview of the case outlined at the two-day sentencing hearing included the fact that the 29-yearold man—who cannot be named because of a publication ban—raped the girl daily beginning when she was two years old. The accused pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault causing bodily harm and possession of child pornography. The crown is seeking a sentence of 10 to 12 years in prison, that the man’s name be added to the sexual offender registry and that he be banned from having contact with children. See JUNE, Page 27
