Impact of ruling would be ‘significant’ for district
BY CORNELIA NAYLOR firstname.lastname@example.org
he Chilliwack school district would face “significant” costs if it were required to abide by a B.C. Supreme Court ruling that restores class-size limits and class composition to pre-2002 levels. Last month, Justice Susan Griffin ordered the provincial government to reinstate parts of B.C. teachers’ 2002 contract that would reduce current class sizes and increase support for

students with special needs. To implement those changes, the Chilliwack district would not only have to hire more staff; it would also have to pay for new portables to accommodate more classes, according to board chair Walt Krahn. “We have done a complete analysis of the costs of not only additional teachers, but also additional portable classrooms,” he said. “We have, of course, no vacancies, we’re at full capacity south of the freeway. We have virtually no empty classes, and so
the impact would be very significant.” The district was asked by the provincial government to come up with a complete analysis of the potential impact of the ruling two weeks ago, Krahn said, and the details were discussed by the board in camera last Tuesday. He said the district knows how many teachers and extra classrooms it would need and how much it would all cost, but that that information was being kept secret for now because it is part of the negotiations between the B.C. Teachers’ Federa-
tion and the province. He did reiterate that the costs would be “significant.” “The numbers are significant for additional staff and the numbers are also significant for our capacity concerns,” Krahn said. The province is in the process of appealing Griffin’s decision, and in the meantime has asked for a stay on reinstating pre-2002 class-size and composition levels until the appeal has been heard. A ruling on that request was expected this week.
A BRIGHT NEW FUTURE
AT WHAT PRICE?
ity hall’s plan to purchase all the properties on the Yale Road block east of Five Corners meant the municipality spent close to $900,000 last year on real estate. The final price tag to buy the block of properties needed for the city’s ambitious land assembly plan will likely be at least $4 million, by the Times’ calculations. And that does not include the old Empress property or other pieces of land owned by the city on Princess Avenue. The plan for the block follows on a recommendation from the city’s
Downtown Task Force Report, namely: “That the City use appropriate methods to acquire and assemble land in a key block of properties within the Downtown Core and demolish buildings and remediate property as necessary to become ‘development ready.’” The idea is to make an attractive package for developers who will, hopefully, bring forth city hall’s vision for a development with commercial, residential and park space at the prominent corner. In 2013, to that end, city hall spent $895,500, 120 per cent of assessed value, for five of the properties on the block in question between 46110 and 46170 Yale Rd. In addition to that money, the city

the city does not own, and the price tag hits at least $4 million. The Times made the rough calculations after former mayor and former
Chilliwack MLA John Les asked on Facebook: “What’s the bill so far for all the property purchases? Who’s picking up the tab? Will the money ever be recouped? What’s the plan? Budget?” The highest price above assessed value went to one of two properties set for “deconstruction” along with the Irwin Block. The former owner sold 46116 Yale Rd. on Oct. 15, 2013 to the city for $210,000, more than 50 per cent above the assessed value of $137,000. The property owner next door at 46110 Yale Rd. told the Times a year ago “I am not going to sell it to them period.” See PRICE, Page 7

year. This summer there will be four Friday nights for the downtown festival at Central Community Park: July 11 and 18, and Aug. 15 and 22. “Many volunteers, merchants, sponsors and organizing partners have had difficulty committing to the full summer,” BIA executive director Kyle Williams said in a press release. “Conflicting dates with the Chilliwack Fair, struggles on the BC Day long weekend, and general summer vacations made the eight-week schedule difficult to maintain.” The four-night schedule ensures the Party in the Park will be the best one possible, the BIA said. The BIA said suggestions were collected from surveys conducted last summer and those will be used to make adjustments for this season. Among them: a renewed focus on local artists on the entertainment stage; more activities for kids; a rejuvenated marketplace; and greater support from local shops. “Some people want the event to be smaller and more intimate, while some want us to make it bigger with more activities,” Williams said. “We love that there is so much passion for the event in Chilliwack, and we just need to find a way to balance all the great ideas and suggestions that have been collected.” Vendor applications and information for volunteer and entertainment opportunities will be available at www.downtownchilliwack.com in upcoming weeks.

A group of Chilliwack Girl Guide Sparks takes the Canadian citizenship oath in an event organized by local Pathfinder Jordan Goodfellow at Cultus Lake community school last Tuesday.
midst the patriotic zeal of the Olympic Winter Games last week, nearly 150 Chilliwack Girl Guides converged on the Cultus Lake community school gym to take the Canadian citizenship oath. Standing with right hands raised, Sparks, Brownies, Pathfinders, Rangers and a few adults, swore (or affirmed) allegiance to the Queen and promised to faithfully observe the laws of Canada and fulfill their duties as Canadian citizens. “I think that everybody should have to do the promise or the oath,” said 14-year-old Pathfinder Jordan Goodfellow, who organized the event. “Other immigrants, they have to do it, and if we don’t do it, it’s like

Last Tuesday’s event was Goodfellow’s bridging activity. “Being Canadians, we all share the same values, the same rights and responsibilities,” she told her fellow Guides. “People from all over the world want to live here and become Canadian citizens because they know they will be welcomed here and it is safe here. We live in a democratic society and we have individual rights and freedoms . . . I encourage all of you as you repeat the words, to actually pay attention to the words and think about what you are promising as a citizen of this great country.”

‘Optimism’ as strike looms BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
he Chilliwack school board and local teachers’ union expressed vague optimism and few specifics in light of a looming provincewide teacher strike vote next week. Citing major concession demands by government, an unfair salary offer, and a deliberately confrontational attempt to reverse the recent BC Supreme Court decision on class size, composition, and staffing levels, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) announced Tuesday teachers will vote on job action March 4 to 6. If teachers approve a strike, they would have 90 days to activate some sort of job action, but the BCTF has said that wouldn’t mean school closures, teachers walking away from extracurricular activities or a disruption to report cards or communication with parents—yet. But all those could come—as they did two years ago—if no progress is made at the provincial bargaining table. “When you vote for a strike, legally you are voting to allow your organization to undertake any kind of action it wants,” Chilliwack Teachers’ Association (CTA) president Clint Johnston told the Times. He said he is hopeful, however, that all job action can be avoided even if a strike is approved by teachers next week.
“We are eternal optimists and we be an “innocuous start,” as far as stuhope to conclude a deal at the table,” dents and parents were concerned. “It’s aimed at creating headaches he said, “and we’re optimistic that, if the government learns the lesson for administration,” he said. “We try we believe the courts are trying tell to use the channel up method. You it, which is that they need to bargain have your point of contact, which in good faith at the table, that we can unfortunately for us in this province have a deal within 90 days, and we is schools; it’s the teachers and the can walk away without any action principals, and we try to create as ever impacting children or students.” much impact as we can on those His sentiments were echoed by administrators and hopefully it filters up to the top, that it’s causing probschool board chair Walt Krahn. lems for them and “I believe that motivates them to both parties come to a deal.” w a n t r e s o l u - “I can’t believe for a Since school tion,” he said. “I moment that both administrators can’t believe for parties are pleased are expected a moment that to hold their both parties are with what has unground, however, pleased with what folded over the last its unclear how has unfolded several weeks.” much impact this over the last sevstage will have on eral weeks, and Walt Krahn provincial barI want to believe gaining. that bright minds “Our adminiswill seek resolve.

he Olympics and a windy day last week got me thinking seriously about flags. As many of us were ensconced i n o u r q u a d re n n i a l b u r s t o f national pride watching Canadians pull in medal after medal in Sochi, and as the wind whipped through the Fraser Valley, I was at Salish Plaza downtown when I heard a whipping, thwacking sound above. I looked up to see what looked like a horribly shredded remnant of a Canadian flag twittering desperately in the wind. Intrigued that any business owner would allow such a wreck of a flag to be flown during the Winter Olympics, the same day the Canadian women won gold medals in hockey, my eyes turned skyward to Canadian flags around town. Back with a camera, I looked through the lens at the offending flag flying prominently downtown only to realize it wasn’t ripped down to its last red stripe, but was merely tangled on the pole, an understandable effect in the heavy winds. Now, feeling like a flag policeman, or rather vigilante, I went snooping for flag-flying violators. Superstore? Looking great. Great Canadian Oil Change? Tons of ‘em at both locations, looking just fine. Oddly, the massive Canadian flag often seen at the Luckakuck Husky was not flying at all, nor were any flags on poles at Canadian Tire. Maybe it was too windy, which sounds a little like being too hungry to eat . . . but it was really windy and more than one flag around town was tangled into itself. There are rules about flying the Canadian flag some of which are
Flags flown on cars are supposed to be mounted on the right side of the vehicle.
PAUL J. HENDERSON @peejayaitch so nuanced I dare say few Canadians could know them all. I say rules, but they aren’t laws, more like ethical guidelines from Heritage Canada. “The National Flag of Canada should be displayed only in a manner befitting this important national symbol; it should not be subjected to indignity or displayed in a position inferior to any other flag or ensign,” according to Heritage Canada. There is nothing illegal about flying a damaged flag or even burning a flag for that matter, but Heritage Canada has a strict list of “shoulds” when it comes to the maple leaf. A few points many may have not considered: the national flag of Canada should not be used as a table cloth or seat cover; while it is not technically incorrect to use the flag to cover a statue, monument or plaque for an unveiling ceremony, it should be discouraged; nothing should be pinned to or sewn on the flag; and the flag should not be signed or marked in any way. At city hall, the Canadian flag flies on the middle pole of three, in its correct position above the British Columbia flag, which is to the left and, right now, the Métis flag, which was put up for Louis Riel day and is to the right. This follows protocol, which says three flags on the same base should have the national flag at the centre, the second-ranking flag to the left and the other to the

right. The Holland Shopping Centre on Young, similarly has three flags flying, the national flag and two flags of the Netherlands. Heritage Canada says when the national flag is flown with that of other sovereign nations they, should be at the same height, but Canada’s should be in the “position of honour,” which is the middle. The Holland Shopping Centre got it right. Interestingly, in terms of precedence, if the flag of Canada is flown with that of all the provinces and territories, B.C.’s flag should be in the seventh position based on the order of entering Confederation. A n o t h e r c o m m o n p ra c t i c e during the Olympics is people buying plastic flags to affix to cars and trucks. The one car with a flag I spotted had its flag on the left side, which is actually a no-no. “The flag must be on a pole firmly fixed to the chassis on the front right,” Heritage Canada says about flags on motor vehicles. So what about a damaged flag? Again, there is no law against it, but Heritage Canada says: “When a flag becomes tattered and is no longer in a suitable condition for use, it should be destroyed in a dignified way.” On my day out searching for flags, the red-and-white on the Sutton Downtown Business Centre was in a sorry state of affairs, flapping on its last threads. I touched base with Kelly Johnston last Friday of Sutton who said he had a new flag ready to go but with the seriously windy weather he couldn’t get it up. A beautiful, bright red national flag is now up at the building at Young and Princess, so all is flapping as it should.
This shred of a flag was above the Sutton Downtown Business Centre until it was replaced last week.

Critics: City doesn’t value heritage
here is old and irrelevant, and then there’s old and important. Deciding which is which is part of the heritage conversation, a conversation critics of city hall say just doesn’t happen in Chilliwack. “The Irwin Block at Five Corners is a Chilliwack landmark,” according to the Chilliwack Museum and Archives in a document from a photo collection. Last week (Feb. 17 to 23) was Heritage Week in B.C., and it was Feb. 18 when city council unanimously decided to demolish the more than 100-year-old Irwin Block. “Chilliwack’s contribution to Heritage Week is marked by mayor and council’s vote . . . to demolish another downtown heritage building,” said Laura Reid, a local heritage enthusiast and member of the society that PRICE, from page 1
Krzysztof Grosicki eventually did sell to the municipality on Aug. 30, 2013 for $240,000, according to city hall. The assessed value of that property was $231,300. Other properties purchased by the city in 2013 include: 46122 Yale Rd. on May 15 for $94,500; 46126 Yale Rd. on Oct. 31 for $84,000; and 46158 Yale Rd. on Sept. 25 for $232,000. To complete the plan to acquire all the properties on the block, the city still has five to purchase, all from
tried to save the Paramount Theatre. “Although Mayor Gaetz spoke on a Star FM radio broadcast in March 2012 saying she ‘doesn’t want to be known as the mayor who smashes down buildings’ this did not stop her and council for voting for another gravel parking lot, all at taxpayers’ expense.” The Irwin block was, according to a staff report presented at the Feb. 18 council meeting, virtually beyond repair. The contract to demolish the building is for $141,000. City staff say it would cost in the neighbourhood of $800,000 to make the building usable. Reports from the Chilliwack Museum and Archives say the Irwin Block was built in three stages between 1909 and 1913 with the middle section completed last. In June of 1911, the Irwin Block was purchased by Huston and Cruickshank. In November 1912, Charles Henry Cowen relocated his pharmaceutical

business from the Knight Block to the Irwin Block. On August 3, 1937, B.A Irwin died and the Irwin Block was sold, as part of his estate, to another pharmacist, Harry D. Hipwell. Some residents today will remember Hipwell’s business in the building. Gaetz mentioned it at the Feb. 18 council meeting. She said she remembered eating lunch at the counter as a teenager. There are heritage characteristics to the Irwin Block to be sure, but prolonged neglect and damage meant it was unsalvageable, according to city hall. Garbage removal and hazardous materials abatement is scheduled inside the three buildings to be deconstructed this week until March 12, according to the contractor. Heavy demolition of the buildings should begin March 13, with the project scheduled to be completed by the end of March.

When asked to answer former mayor Les’s question about who is picking up the tab, a city hall spokesperson said the buildings were bought by the city and not the Chil-
liwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO). As for whether the money will be recouped, that would be speculation. City council voted on Feb. 18 to begin “deconstruction” of the Irwin Block and the two buildings next door. Interior garbage removal began this week with heavy demolition scheduled too begin March 13. The bill to demolish the buildings is $141,400.

ed tape undermines the relationship between a government and its citizens. At its worst, red tape can wreck lives. That’s why five years ago the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) started Red Tape Awareness Week, a week in January dedicated to encouraging governments of all levels to take action. The federal government has taken up the challenge. In January 2011, Prime Minister Harper called red tape “a silent killer of jobs” and announced a Red Tape Reduction Commission. The Commission heard from business owners across Canada and issued 15 ambitious recommendations. Recently, the Treasury Board president, Tony Clement, made more progress in implementing the reforms by tabling legislation that will make the “one-for-onerule” law. For each new regulation introduced, one of equivalent burden must be removed. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), a major source of red tape, is also working to improve. In the last couple of years it has required agents to identify themselves to callers and committed to providing advice in writing to business owners. Minister of National Revenue Kerry-Lynne Findlay just announced another CRA
Be Our Guest culture-changer: a pilot project to provide compliance advice and education before business owners make mistakes. At one of the first commission roundtables, Karen told her story. She sells teddy bears that have a pack inside that is stuffed with rice that can be heated. Health Canada had ordered her to stop making the bears and to recall all of her product. It had nothing to do with the safety of her product but with some arcane rule saying that rice could not be used as a stuffing material. I can’t possible relay to you the stress she was under fearing for her business, her livelihood and her employees’ livelihoods. After explaining her challenges to the Red Tape Commission, her problem was resolved. The story should illustrate how important red tape reform is to people’s lives. Karen and her employees still have jobs thanks to red tape reduction. The business owners that have advice in writing from CRA can sleep better at night.
The one-for-one rule has saved 98,000 hours—time that business owners can spend serving customers, training staff and cherishing family. British Columbia has been a leader in fighting back dumb rules to improve lives, reducing regulatory requirements by over 40 per cent over the past decade and being the first jurisdiction in Canada to measure and report red tape. It gets the only “A” on CFIB’s annual red tape report card. But even leaders have to be vigilant because red tape is an aggressive weed. The B.C. government has given regulatory power to an arms-length group called Multi Material BC (MMBC). MMBC is set to introduce complex packaging rules that are in clear contravention of B.C.’s own regulatory reform policy and do nothing to further environmental objectives. Some improvements were announced earlier this week but they will likely not go far enough. How serious is B.C. about maintaining its red tape leadership? We’ll see. ◗ Laura Jones is Executive Vice President of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. She can be reached at email@example.com. Follow her on Twitter @CFIBideas.
ig problems require big solutions. Downtown Chilliwack has its qualities: many good shops, restaurants and events in the summer. But we all know the area is not all it could be. Some blocks are worse than others with regard to crime, drug activity and buildings held by out-of-town owners who care not for the well-being of our community. So how do we fix downtown? Chilliwack’s downtown is not unique in its troubles, most of which began to befall urban cores all over with the push towards car culture in the 1950s. Living in the core of a downtown or in close proximity became less desirable than having a nice patch of grass and a house a few kilometres away in the burgeoning suburbs. Shopping moved to strip malls and roads became the stagnant lifeblood of cities. So what of Chilliwack’s ambitious plan to “assemble land” in the downtown core and lay out a package of development-ready properties to a serious investor prepared to help revitalize the core of our city? It’s time for such a bold idea, which is drawing out some critics. Some point to individual buildings in the core that have heritage value as a reason why the city shouldn’t proceed with purchases and demolitions. But there is no cohesive frontage to be particularly proud of in the downtown core. There are bits of heritage: interesting brick-work here, unique crown mouldings there. Not many of the buildings on the block the city wants to purchase, package and have redeveloped jump out as being of obvious heritage value. The current mayor and council have an ambitious optimism—which may have been spurred by a consultant they hired—in their belief that some developer will come calling with millions and millions of dollars for a risky redesign of a downtown block. But what is the alternative? Let the free market fix downtown’s problems while owners sit on empty, dilapidated properties? The time is now for something bold. City hall’s plans might just be it. Let’s hope so.

Time to start applying taxes at border
Where is the restraint?
Editor: Re: Fiscal restraint. It seems that every day, the media talks about people carrying a debt load, and the need for each of us to use restraint about taking on more debt. People need to start paying down their debts. This is very good advice, and we should all take heed. The provincial government crows about how they are balancing the budget. Well whooptydoo, it was recently reported that our debt is still growing, along with all that interest. It was also reported that we would have to pay out billions every year, for I don’t know how many years, in order to pay down the debt. I don’t see the government crowing about how they are planning on paying that down. Now they have the nerve to
Pave paradise and put up a . . . Editor: Earlier this year, it was announced that there were 35 applications for boundary adjustments in BC Parks for industrial development (eg. pipelines, LNG, logging access, etc.). The government plans to remove land from our park lands without even considering a “no-net loss” policy for park land lost or heavily impacted by industrial development. This means that the decision to remove park land for industry— logging, mining, LNG—is being made without any consideration of the impacts this will have on wildlife and biodiversity or to recreational values. Now, on Feb. 13, the Liberals passed Bill 4 which will allow “research” in BC Parks and ecological areas. This means that harmful ecological activities such as exploratory drilling, ore sampling and road building will be allowed in BC Parks, no matter how small the park. Locally, 12 hectares is proposed as an industrial boundary adjustment for a road in Sasquatch Park while British Columbians still foot the bill for
this road’s maintenance. Something is desperately wrong here and one wonders how many more removals will follow. Our provincial parks are being relegated to leftover natural strips not required by industry. Use your voice to tell the Minister of Environment, Mary Polak to withdraw Bill 4, stop the boundary adjustments and to respect the designation of BC’s parks and protected areas.

Government is on the right track Editor: Our provincial government coming up with a balanced budget is very commendable. When you consider that the worldwide economic situation is extremely delicate and B.C. is so dependent on natural resource exports, it is particularly impressive. The challenges facing our provincial government in the area of increasing health care costs, the difficulties with respect to education spending, complex social problems together with the needs for roads and bridges along with the costs of our ferry services and many other items suggest that bringing in a balanced budget was not easy. Attempting to digest and understand all the details included in this budget as laid out in the 100-page budget document is not easy but provides some insight into the complexity of developing our provincial budget. However, having said that, there are a few points that jumped out at me during my limited review of the document. First is the carbon tax which when you examine the claim that this tax is revenue neutral

makes you wonder if this is not just another example of a failed attempt at social engineering. I also had to wonder about the economic projections with respect to the liquefied natural gas program. I could find no significant tax benefits in the foreseeable future. With respect to jobs, particularly for young people, the document fell a little short of my expectations. There is also the issue of recycling fees, which are a form of taxation, which do not appear to be mentioned. On the overall, I believe our government is on the right track but there are a few areas that could stand a closer look. Jack Carradice Chilliwack

Editor: Several weeks ago I contacted Mark Strahl to ask why people can cross the border for minutes, an hour or day; and return with groceries, merchandise, a car full of gas, plus extra gas in jerry cans, and are not being charged duty, GST or PST. Mr. Strahl responded back saying that he passed my letter on to the Minister of Finance. Needless to say I have yet to get an answer. We have just received a nice little tax guide from Mark Strahl stating you must be out of the country for at least 24 hours before the tax exemptions apply. I just ordered a product from the United States and had it delivered here and I was charged PST and GST. The way it stands; I could have crossed the border for an hour, brought the merchandise into Canada and not be charged anything. I like to save money like everyone else; is it fair to business in Canada when you see lineups of hundreds of shoppers going to the States for only day trips or flying out of the States to save money on the taxes? I thought our government was supposed to support Canadian business. Can anyone tell me why these taxes are not being applied at the border? The Canadian Government is losing thousands of dollars a day and jeopardizing the businesses in Canada. C. Kozlik Chilliwack

Lead in the way of the everlasting I BY GRAHAM MCMAHON Chilliwack Church of the Nazarene
n the middle of January, I went to visit a friend, Julie, who had been diagnosed with cancer. A week later they found out the cancer was rapidly growing and weren’t sure what the outcome would be. Julie asked if I would walk with her as a friend and pastor for whatever lay ahead. She was looking for spiritual direction and to deepen her faith in God and it was my honour to accompany her on that journey. In times like Julie was facing, it is only God who can truly bring comfort.
In our first visit in her living room, Julie and I turned to Psalm 139. This Psalm speaks of God’s intimate knowledge of us, his love for us, his assurance that he will always be present no matter how dark things get, and of the time on this earth he has given us. It all ends with a short simple prayer. Julie found hope, peace, comfort, assurance, courage, and even joy from this Psalm. Five days after our first visit, Julie was admitted to the hospital. Her first night there, we again read through Psalm 139 together. Julie asked me to repeat the last line to her. It’s the end of the short simple prayer: “Lead me in the way everlast-
ing” (Psalm 139:24). Her longing was for God to lead her in the way everlasting. If it was to go home to be with Him, she wanted to trust God to lead her. I invited her to pray and I still marvel at her prayer. She asked God to guide her, she told God that she was his, and she asked that his will would be done and that she would know how to follow it. It was a prayer of trust, of peace, of faith, and of love. It was simple. It was beautiful. Five days later, she went home to be with her heavenly Father. When I reflect on my time with Julie, there are many memories that impact me. One of those was an
event that occurred the day before she passed away. As I walked into her room, she was in her bed facing the window. She was surrounded by close family and friends, but in the field outside her window was the entire elementary school she taught at, singing her a song. What I realized then, and at many other times during our time together, was that Julie had always been led in the way everlasting. In her life, she chose to use the time she had been given to selflessly invest in her students, her friends and family, her three young boys, and in her husband. She chose to love them and invest in them in an everlasting way.

This short prayer is a prayer for both the here and now and a prayer of hope for when our lives come to an end. There are so many trivial and selfish ways we can waste our days and so many ways we can choose to live our lives in a way that will impact others well beyond the end of our lives. It all comes down to whether or not we choose to trust God to “lead us in the way everlasting.” What will you choose? ◗ Graham McMahon is a pastor serving the Chilliwack Church of the Nazarene.

Chilliwack Chief Zach Diamantoni goes flying during action against the Prince George Spruce Kings last Saturday at Prospera Centre. BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
he Chilliwack Chiefs got a glimpse of young Jordan Kawaguchi’s future as a sniper, as the rookie scored three goals in the team’s two losses on the weekend. The 16-year-old Abbotsford product scored once in Friday’s 8-5 loss to the Rivermen in Langley and then twice in the Chief’s 5-4 overtimes loss to the Prince George Spruce Kings at Prospera Centre Saturday. The goals were just Kawaguchi’s sixth, seventh and eighth, but with the season winding down and a number of players leaving the team due to age or college commitments, all eyes are on the future of the team. Fellow rookie Jake Hand also con-
tributed with three assists over the two games. The six-foot-three-inch, 210-pound Hand has 13 goals and 21 assists in 52 games this season. Hand kicked off the weekend with a second assist on Jaret Babych’s goal from Tanner Cochrane to make it 1-0 at 6:06 of the first against Langley. The second half of that period didn’t go well as the Rivermen scored three in five minutes, including two from Matt Ustaski. The Chiefs were lucky to emerge down just 3-1 as the defence gave up 17 shots in the period. The second period tilted more Chilliwack’s way with shots 13-9 in favour of the Chiefs, but each team allowed three goals, including Kawaguchi’s first of the weekend to kick the period off at 2:09. The game was 6-4 for Langley going into the third, still in sight for the
Chiefs, but the game’s first star, Evan Anderson, scored his second for the Rivermen making it 7-4. That was followed up by second star Ustaski’s unassisted marker to make it 8-4. Zach Diamantoni scored an unassisted goal for Chilliwack at 16:56 and 8-5 is how it ended. Goalie Spencer Tremblay allowed all eight goals on 42 shots. Saturday back at Prospera was a much better game for the home team, particularly the first period. Kawaguchi scored his second of the weekend to open the scoring at 9:16 of the first from Kiefer McNaughton. That was followed up by a power-play marker by Mathieu Tibbet from Kawaguchi and Carter Cochrane at 11:25. A little more than a minute after that, Chilliwack stamped their authority all over the period making it 3-0
on Kawaguchi’s second from Caleb Thompson and McNaughton. The second period, however, was all Langley as they scored three goals to head into the third period tied 3-3. At 2:59 of the third, Chad Staley scored from Justin Rai to put Prince George up for the first time in the game, but 12 minutes later Jaret Babych tied things up from Hand and McNaughton. Overtime was quick and painful as Rai scored his second of the game to win it for the Spruce Kings just 19 seconds into the extra frame. ◗ The two final games of the Chilliwack Chiefs 2013/2014 season are this weekend, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. away against the Coquitlam Express and then March 1 at 7 p.m. at Prospera Centre against the Express.

Sports Simgle-A title for Unity Unity Christian’s senior girls basketball team captured the single-A Fraser Valley Championship title Saturday. Playing in front of a packed Unity gym, the girls earned their second Fraser Valley banner in the school’s 12-year history by taking down Langley archrivals Credo Christian 62-49. Andrea Vanryk led the Unity offence with 22 points, while Cassandra Taekema chipped in another 11. The Flames had earned a spot in the final after brushing aside Agassiz 79-26 in the semis Friday. Unity’s Adriana Brouwer was awarded the Fraser Valley MVP, while Sarah Haan and Andrea Van Ryk took home all-star honours. “The Fraser Valley win has been a result of a lot of hard work by the girls in not only this season, but ones leading up to it,” said Unity coach Dave Bron. “It was such a great feeling to see them succeed as a result of this dedication. Bron’s squad now heads to the provincial championships in Vernon March 5 to 8.

Silver for Vedder middle
Around the rim Better in than out Unity Christian’s senior boys basketball team earned a spot at the single-A provincial championships but failed to repeat as Fraser Valley champions Saturday. The boys guaranteed their provincial berth with a 54-41 win over eighthranked Credo Christian Thursday. But the final against B.C. Christian Saturday saw no heroic buzzer beater like the one that earned Unity the banner against the same opponent last year. Jon Vugteveen earned tournament all-star honours after averaging 17.3 points per game, 5.4 assists and 9.2 rebounds. Clay Driesen also received an all-star nod, averaging 15.8 points per game and 6.8 rebounds. Unity is now seeded third entering the provincial tournament at the Langley Events Centre March 4 to 8, and will be gunning for the school’s
Vedder middle school’s Grade 9 girls basketball team captured silver at the Fraser Valley Championship last Friday. The Vipers earned a spot in the final after a 29-24 win over Centennial last Wednesday and a 41-28 victory over Heritage Woods Thursday. In Friday’s game, they held Lord Tweedsmuir to 19-10 after three quarters, but Tweedsmuir’s deep 14-player bench eventually outlasted the Viper’s nine players. Hannah Tonsaker led Vedder’s offence with seven points. Makena Lejeune put up four and Jade Victor scored two. Lejeune and Catherine Toop also took home league all-star honours.
Sr. Falcons need a win The Sardis secondary senior boys basketball team put itself into a must-win situation after losing 76-46 to Gleneagle in round two of the Fraser Valley Championships Monday. The fifth seed Falcons kicked off the tournament with a 78-60 win over 12th
seed Heritage Woods Friday, but fell to fourth seed Gleneagle this week. Sardis now needs to win its next two games to earn one of the Fraser Valley’s six spots at the B.C. Championships next month. Their next game is against Yale tonight (Feb. 27) at 8:15 p.m. at Fleetwood Park in Surrey. A win will put them up against either W.J. Mouat or MEI Friday at the Langley Events Centre.

art deux of the the Chilliwack Centre of Excellence’s Icebreaker slalom flat water slalom kayaking series was a chilly affair at Hope Slough in Chilliwack Saturday. Snow fell as contestants gunned for the best time making their way through gates, around dangling trees and through a few sludgy sections. In the second of the three-part racing series, Isabel Taylor took top spot in Cadet K1 women, Finley Capstick won in Cadet K1 men, Maddison Atkins prevailed in Junior K1 women and Rhys Taylor won in Junior K1 men. The final race in the series, which was to have been held just off the Interprovincial Highway between Chilliwack and Abbotsford Sunday was postponed till April 6 because of the snow.

Add some fresh colour to your kitchen cabinets
any homeowners dream of giving their kitchens a fullscale remodel. Though such a project can give a kitchen an entirely new look, that look does not come cheap. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2013 “Cost vs. Value Report,” homeowners can expect to spend more than $53,000 on a major kitchen remodel and recoup just below 70 percent of that cost at resale. So while the idea of a fullscale kitchen remodel might be a dream project, the cost of such an undertaking is beyond many homeowners’ budgets. But homeowners who cannot afford a full remodel can still give their kitchens a new look and can do so for relatively little money. Painting kitchen cabinets a new colour or simply giving fading cabinets a fresh coat of paint can instantly add life to a kitchen, giving the room an entirely different feel without breaking the bank. The following are a few tips for homeowners planning to paint their kitchen cabinets. ◗ Assess your existing cabinets. Some cabinet materials, including wood and metal, can be repainted without much of a fuss. But other materials, including plastic laminate, are not so amenable to repainting, and will likely require specialty paints. Homeowners with plastic laminate cabinets should first paint a spot or two with a sample paint, being careful to choose a spot that’s concealed. If the paint bonds well to the plastic laminate, then you can go forward and buy enough paint to redo all of the cabinets. If the paint does not take, consult a professional to find a paint that’s likely to be a better fit. Expect this process to be one of trial and error. ◗ Plan for ornate cabinets to take a little longer. Painting projects will go faster when cabinets have flat fronts, but they can take considerably longer when cabinets are unique and more detailed. If your cabinets are ornate, then factor this extra time into your schedule. ◗ Remove the doors and hardware. When painting cabinets, it’s best to essentially disassemble them, removing the doors, handles, knobs, latches, and any additional hardware. When removing hardware, be sure to set them aside in clearly marked plastic bags so it’s easier to reassemble the cabinets once the fresh coat of paint has dried. As doors are removed, number each door and its corresponding location, much like prod-
ucts that require assembly are numbered at the factory. This makes it easier to reassemble and ensures the cabinets and their hinges will align properly once you have finished painting. ◗ Don’t paint dirty surfaces. Cabinet surfaces have likely collected their share of dirt, grease and grime over the years, so you want to clean these surfaces thoroughly before painting. Once surfaces have been cleaned, rinse them off and give them ample time to dry. ◗ Sand the surfaces. Once the surfaces have been cleaned and are completely dry, it’s time to start sanding them. Lightly sand the doors using a wood sanding block, working to create a firm base to which fresh paint can easily adhere. Areas that are most exposed to wear and tear may require some extra elbow grease, and some areas may be especially flaky. When old paint is flaking off, this means the previous finish did not adhere very well to the surface, which is not necessarily uncommon in kitchens, where moisture and grease residue can make it harder for paint to adhere to the surface. In such instances, sand the flaky areas to the bare wood before spot-priming with a primer or sealer designed for areas with heavy staining. After all of the sanding is complete, vacuum the surfaces to ensure there is no leftover sanding dust before painting. ◗ Apply primer-sealer. Primer-sealer ensures the fresh paint will bond well to the surfaces, preventing conditions like flaking in the future. ◗ Paint the cabinets. After the primer-sealer has been applied, it’s time to paint the cabinets. Begin with the inside edges and openings of the face frames, followed by the outer cabinet sides and then the front of the frames. Then move on to the cabinet doors and any drawer fronts you might be painting as well. Cabinets with more elaborate designs require closer attention to detail than flat cabinets. When painting, opt for thin coats, which dry more quickly and also create fewer visible brushstrokes. When applying multiple coats, allow the paint ample time to dry between coats. Four hours between coats is a good rule of thumb, and lightly resand all surfaces before applying the second and final coat. ◗ Reassemble the cabinets. Once the final coat of paint has fully dried, carefully reassemble your cabinets.

Local athletes shine at Winter Games
hilliwack athletes contributed a fistful of hardware to a dominant Fraser Valley zone medal count at the BC Winter Games last weekend. Zone 3, which drew on athletic talent from Hope to Port Moody, owned the podium with 104 medals, including 30 gold. One of those gold medals came via the Fraser Valley zone’s girls hockey team, which swept through the tournament unde-
feated and beat Fraser River Delta (Zone 4) 3-2 in the gold-medal game Sunday with help from Chilliwack’s Ryann Allenby, Tamina Kehler and Kate Stuart. In curling, Chilliwack’s Cailin Cooke and Everly Royea, were instrumental in Zone 3’s gold-medal victory led by skip Dezaray Hawes from Anmore. The team dominated Zone
Cariboo-North East (Zone 8) 8-1 in the final. Two Chilliwack gymnasts also brought back a brace of medals for the Fraser Valley. Brienna Gaspar captured gold all-around in Category 1 and gold on beam, while Ella Palmer won bronze all-around, bronze on vault and gold on floor. In speedskating, Chilliwack’s
Dominique Hawkenson won bronze in the 500 metres and the 1,500 metres among U16 girls. Rebekah Clemons brought home three silvers, two in the U16 500 metres and one in the U16 3000-metre mixed relay. In wheelchair basketball, meanwhile, Chilliwack’s Brad Hagkull coached Zone 3 to a gold medal, while his son Ben Hagkull helped Fraser River-Delta (Zone 4) win bronze.

A tried-and-true troubadour T
he Juno-winning songcraft of honky-tonker Corb Lund runs from Goth girls to survivalists, bovines to Bibles and antique pistols to vintage motorcycles, and he’s coming to Chilliwack. Tickets are on sale now for the Alberta country-rock sensation’s May 8 show at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre with guests Harlan Pepper. From rockabilly to western swing, cowboy balladry to country-rock with an occasional yodel thrown in, Lund and his three-piece Hurtin’ Albertans are doing it all country style. Their incredible diversity is heard in such songs as “Truck Got Stuck,” “Roughest Neck Around,” “Hair in My Eyes Like A Highland Steer,” “Devil’s Best Dress,” “(Gonna) Shine Up My Boots,” “I Wanna Be In The Cavalry,” “Time To Switch To Whiskey,” “Truth Comes Out,” “Counterfeiter’s Blues” and “A Game in Town Like This.” Their latest album, Cabin Fever, shot to number one in Canada in its first week.

globe from the likes of National Public Radio, Uncut (nine out of 10) and the New York Times, which described it as “an album of pithy mischief and roguish charm.” Tracy Feist of American Cowboy. com says, “Another proud son of southern Alberta ranching stock, Lund carries on the troubadour tradition of Ian Tyson. His songs tell vivid stories—like ‘This is My Prairie’ and the Marty Robbins-infused ‘Devil’s Best Dress.’ And Lund can yodel, too. What more can you ask for?” With one foot in old-fashioned cowboy music, but treating it with some abandon and irreverence and with seven records’ worth of material to choose from, every Corb Lund show is unique. ◗ Country 107.1 and Rock.It Boy Entertainment present The Spring Thaw Tour featuring Corb Lund with Harlan Pepper May 8 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Matuto brings Brazilian groove
Submitted photo Q2 – MARCH – 2012 – CANADA
Matuto bring their Brazilian roots influenced music to Harrison Memorial Hall March 8.
orn out of New York’s vibrant musical culture, Matuto—a Portuguese slang word meaning ‘country boy’— shares their deep love of American roots music and genuine Brazilian styles at Harrison Memorial Hall on March 8 at 8 p.m. The music of Matuto draws inspiration both from the Brazilian roots music that band leaders Clay Ross and Rob Curto have spent years passionately studying and from the American roots music that’s surrounded them since birth. Their original sound can sway hips just as easily as spark insights. Drawing on Northeastern Brazil’s folkloric rhythms like forró, maracatu, or coco, and on deep Americana—from bluegrass to spirituals to swampy Louisiana jams—Matuto uses unexpected Pan-American sonic sympathies to craft appealing, rootsy, yet philosophical tales of love, self-discovery, nostalgia, and true peace. “Matuto performs a type of music not yet well known in North America but is perhaps the most popular music in Northeastern Brazil,” explains Harrison Festival Society artistic director, Andy Hillhouse. “The groove of forró music resembles Cajun music in many ways and is infectious in its danceability.” The band features guitar, accordion, bass, drums, and various Brazilian percussion instruments: the alfaia (a large, wooden, rope-
tuned bass drum), the pandeiro (a Brazilian tambourine), the berimbau (a single-string on a bow struck with a small stick), and the agogô (a pair of small, pitched metal bells) as well as brings together some of the best musicians working across NYC’s diverse jazz, roots and world music scenes, like Brazilian percussionist Zé Mauricio, drummer Chris Berry, and bassist Mike Lavalle. Matuto welds these many influences into a uniquely danceable soundscape. On stage, the instruments swirl together, bobbing in and out, whirling around the tension at the core of Matuto’s music: the push and pull between the Latin syncopations of Brazilian roots music and the folk traditions of the American South. It’s bluegrass meets Brazil. “Matuto is unique in their tendency to fuse forró with Appalachian music, a surprising blend that works well,” Hillhouse says. “Bringing Matuto to Harrison is part of an overall vision to introduce Brazilian styles outside of the bossa nova and samba music that people normally associate with Brazil.”

Mike England is raffling off this 17-foot cedar strip canoe to fund a bursary in his son Jeremy’s honour.
Paddle your own canoe BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
t’s coming up on five years since 14-year-old Jeremy England died tragically while hiking with his cousin on Sumas Mountain. On Sept. 24, 2009, the Vedder middle school student fell off a 15-metre cliff after losing his footing coming down steep terrain. The tragedy, obviously, hit his family hard. The Englands are, however, keeping his memory alive with a bursary fund for Sardis secondary students. And Jeremy’s dad Mike has created a lake-worthy work of art in the form of a cedar-strip canoe being raffled off to fund that bursary. Mi k e s a i d Je re my w o u l d always stick up for the little guy, whether it was someone being picked on at school or on a sports team. “He used to walk a blind girl from class to class to look out for her,” Mike said. After Jeremy died, there was an outpouring of support from those who knew him. “He was always quick to stick up for the underdog,” said one

The cedar-strip work of art a father never got HOT NEW GAMES! to build with his son will now fund his bursary person. “His love and compassion for others was amazing.” “I remember Grade 4 he was in Grade 5 and I have diabetes and he was the only kid who [would] look out for me,” said another. “When I heard he didn’t make it, it felt like someone ripped my heart out.” Jeremy’s dad said the boy was “different” that way, and that’s why he wanted the bursary to go to young people who have a similar attitude. Jeremy got good marks and was quite an athlete, but that’s not what it’s for. The family doesn’t direct the bursary; teachers decide on who gets it. It’s for students with good attitudes, who look out for others. “Jeremy was an honours student and he was a fantastic ath-
lete,” Mike said. “It’s not so much about that. It’s their attitude, caring for other people, looking out for other people.” Mike is not a professional woodworker, but a hobbyist. He said he built the 17-foot cedar strip canoe from directions in a book. His first try “wasn’t good enough for Jeremy” so he gave it away to another organziation to raffle off. Building a canoe is something Mike and Jeremy hoped to do together. “Him and me were going to build one that fall,” Mike said. “Of course he passed away, so we couldn’t.” So Mike footed the bill for the materials and the lottery licence. The family has 4,000 tickets for the raffle printed up. The goal
is to sell them all, at $5 each, by March 15 and raise $20,000 for Sardis secondary graduating students. “All the money being raised, every last dime, is going to the kids.” Tickets for the canoe raffle are available at the following locations in Chilliwack : Country West Supply; Rainbow Food & Gas (Yarrow); Cascade Industrial (Airport Road); Rococo (Vedder Crossing); Winks Home Garden and Gifts (Sardis); Sardis senior secondary (staff and students only); Vedder middle (staff and students only); Yarrow elementary (staff and students only); Rosedale middle (staff and students only) or direct from Lorne Oss at 604-792-1313 or Mike England at 604-823-4847.

It is safe to say that all of us have been touched by the loss of a loved one at some point during our lifetime. The feeling of grief combined with the uncertainty of how life will carry on can be simply overwhelming. By having a professionally drafted Last Will and Testament and Power of Attorney in place, a lot of the stress placed on family and loved ones during a difficult time can be alleviated. Choosing your executor, guardians for minor children and how your estate will be disbursed upon your passing are all decisions that can be made in your will. A Power of Attorney can delegate decision making powers if you were in incapable of doing so on your own. Having made these choices in your estate planning documents will ensure that your wishes are honoured.
The choice is yours to make as to who will take care of your affairs during your lifetime and upon your demise, don’t leave that to chance.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE EXECUTOR OF AN ESTATE
Nothing is certain but death and taxes. However, as many people who have been appointed executors have come to realize, death also means taxes, and dealing with tax administration. Being appointed the executor of the estate of a family member or a friend is an honour and an indication of how much the deceased trusted you. However, honouring that trust can be difficult and time consuming as you may be in unfamiliar territory, legally and financially. In this article, we present an overview of the financial and income tax responsibilities you may face if you have been appointed the executor of the estate of a family member or friend.
The new Wills Estates and Succession Act (“WESA”) comes into force on March 31, 2014. WESA brings significant changes to the laws of British Columbia as they relate to Wills, Probate and Estate Administration, survivorship and joint tenancies, beneficiary designations (for RRSP’s and RRIF’s, TFSA’s, and other Benefit Plans) and other estate related matters. Your Will and/or Estate Plan may need to be updated. Come see us to have your plan and documents reviewed.

Community FUNDRAISER SNOWIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR
FINAL TAX RETURNS FOR THE DECEASED
The final tax return of the deceased will be more complex than their tax return would have been in a year preceding death. This is because property such as marketable securities, and registered accounts such as RRSPs and RRIFs, will be taxed as if they had been liquidated at the date of death. However, if these assets pass to a surviving spouse or common-law partner, a rollover will generally be available which will defer the taxation of these assets until that indi-
vidual passes away. In the year of death, personal tax credits can be claimed in full — they are not prorated to the date of death. The final tax return is due at the later of the normal tax filing due date for the year of death (i.e. April 30, 2014 or if the deceased or their spouse is self-employed, June 16, 2014 for the 2013 tax year) or six months after the date of death.

February 20, 1944-February 20, 2014 Sadly after a short struggle with cancer, Wes passed away peacefully in Chilliwack General Hospital on the day of his 70th birthday. Wes was born in Chilliwack and resided at Ryder Lake his entire life. He was an honest straight forward person known for many acts of kindness to his family and friends. He contributed to his beloved Ryder Lake community for many years. He was happiest with family and friends, with his herd of cattle and the occasional trip to the casino with friends. He was an animal lover and a dog was always part of the family. Wes is survived by his wife Colleen, daughter Sheri (Mike), son Bill (Rhonda), four grandchildren; Dustin, Cameron, Melissa and Megan, sisters Bea and Eleanor, nieces and nephews who were best friends with “Unc” Wes. Wes was predeceased by his parents Fred and Bertha Barber and sister Bev Gentry. The family is grateful to his many friends who were beside Wes throughout his illness.

Flushing Water Mains March - June 2014
The City’s Drinking Water Quality Assurance Program requires the flushing of water mains throughout the community. Water main flushing is a key component to maintaining our high level of water quality throughout the distribution system. You may experience changes to your tap water as a result of the water main flushing. These changes could consist of a brief reduction in pressure and/or possible sediment leading to discoloration; none of which are a health concern. These changes to your tap water are temporary and will dissipate over time. For further information or to report extended low pressure problems or discoloration in your water, please contact the Operations Department at 604.793.2810 or email@example.com.
Yard Waste Options
With spring around the corner, it’s time to think about how to handle your yard waste. Try one of these easy, environmentally friendly options:
Building our community
Mill Street Improvement Project Mill Street construction commenced on January 27, 2014 and is scheduled for completion by mid-April. Please remember to visit the merchants as they are still open during construction. Downtown Greening As part of a 10 year downtown greening and beautification program, many improvements are scheduled for 2014, including greening along Main Street from Wellington Avenue to Spadina Avenue. Vacant Building Bylaw A new vacant building bylaw was introduced in February which will create a permit system for vacant buildings in our City. If adopted by Council, this bylaw should serve as a deterrent to building owners who want to keep buildings vacant long term with no intention to use, improve or redevelop. Interim Green Space The City of Chilliwack has acquired several properties in the downtown core to be packaged for future development of mixed-use residential and commercial space. As part of this process, a long term vacant and unviable building will be removed in March with construction of an interim greenspace to commence shortly afterwards. To learn more about the future of downtown Chilliwack, visit chilliwackdowntownplan.ca.
Spring Clean to Remove Potential Fire Hazards
Reducing the amount of storage and clutter inside and outside your home can significantly reduce potential fire hazards.
Curbside collection: Curbside customers are reminded to request yard trimmings collection to be restarted a week in advance of their first spring mowing, weeding or pruning. Call the City of Chilliwack Finance Department at 604.792.9498 to start collection. Minimum two month subscription required, after which the service will continue until cancelled.
Remember, do not leave yard waste out for collection in plastic bags; please use properly labeled cans or kraft paper bags only.
Parr Road Green Depot: Drop off yard waste at the Green Depot on Parr Road. Hours of operation and fees are available on the City’s website at chilliwack.com/environment or by calling BioCentral at 604.997.0515. Backyard composting: Composters are sold at the Parr Road Green Depot for only $44.00 plus tax. Grass recycling: Leave cut grass on your lawn after mowing to return valuable nutrients to the soil and reduce the need for disposal. Please do not compost or dump yard trimmings within 30 metres of a watercourse. This can impact the quality of the watercourse, spread invasive plants, and is a finable offence. 6353420
Remove and recycle cardboard boxes, old clothing or other ‘stuff’ lying around inside your house, workshop, garage or yard. Dispose of old chemicals or other flammable liquids at the Chilliwack Bottle Depot. Old paint can be taken to the Chilliwack or Sardis Bottle Depots. Store all propane and flammable liquids outside in a well-ventilated, secure location. Keep all combustibles at least 1 metre (3 feet) away from your furnace or other ignition sources. Remove all yard debris away from your house or shed.
For more information on waste disposal or recycling options, please visit chilliwack.com/environment or call 604.793.2907. For fire safety information, please call 604.792.8713.
