Brief cancellation scare rallies support BY DESSA BAYROCK Special to the Times

A

fter an apprehensive wait, Chilliwack is back on track to host a Terry Fox run this fall. The Terry Fox Foundation found itself with some shoes to fill when former Chilliwack co-ordinator Margaret Kostrzewa stepped down after several years of organizing the annual run. Those shoes stayed empty a little longer than provincial co-ordinators were strictly comfortable with; the run is only a few short months away, and organiz“We were ers all over the searching and c o u n t r y a r e gearing up in searching and earnest. But Cathersearching for a ine Hodgson, run organizer, B.C. and Yukon promotions couldn’t find and media one, and had to assistant for the Fox Foununfortunately Terry dation, confirmed this past cancel the Tuesday that event.” a few people have expressed - Catherine interest in Hodgson taking on the position, and the Foundation expects to have someone officially in the role by next week. Cancelling the race was never the first thought in their minds, she said, but neither was it the last. Abbotsford found itself in the same position last year, and ended up without a local run. “We were searching and searching and searching for a run organizer, couldn’t find one, and had to unfortunately cancel the event,” Hodgson said. Too late, the Foundation saw an outpouring of community support. “About a week before [the run] we had this uproar from the community—people saying, ‘Hey, I would have done it! Where’s our run?’” { See TERRY FOX, page A6 }

Chilliwack middle school teachers Ada Koppejan (left) and Tracy Morford walk the picket line during the rotating strike Tuesday.

Frustrated by ‘lame excuse’ { DAYCARES, from page A1 } “They are privately funded and paid for by us,” parent Amanda Harrop told the Times. “I, for one, cannot afford to take the day off.” Antonio ruffled feathers at School District 33 head office when she actually remained open on May 29, the day Chilliwack teachers were on strike. Antonio heard she was supposed to close, but then says someone at the district told her to consult with the principal and the Chilliwack Teachers Association (CTA). “The CTA message said ‘Give us the times open and the names of your staff and what programs are running and we won’t interfere with parents crossing the picket line,’” she said. Out of respect for teachers, she cancelled her out-of-school program but she was open on May 29 for preschool and daycare. Then she got a visit from director of instruction Kirk Savage wondering why she defied the school district order. “I said if I was paying rent at any

other building, say BC Biomed, and they went on strike, I would still be able to operate.” Novak told the Times via email that the board recognizes the strike action is impacting families, but the board made a “difficult decision” to cancel non-district use of sites. “The rental agreements require regular cleaning and maintenance of our sites, including during the summer months,” Novak said. “During strike action there would be no caretaking or maintenance staff to ensure security of the building or to ensure the level of care and clean-

liness of the facility required, which is an important consideration and responsibility.” CUPE maintenance staff who clean the classrooms are on the picket lines in support of teachers. Antonio calls that a “lame excuse” since custodians do virtually nothing in her room. “We clean our own classrooms,” she said, adding that the daycare operates through the summer with no maintenance help at all. “The only thing maintenance does is take out our garbage, and in summer we do that too.”

Novak said another consideration was avoiding potential conflict between picketers and those entering the schools. Antonio said she was “really frustrated” with being ordered to close on day two of the rotating strike Tuesday because of the situation some of her parents are in. “Most of our parents are single parents working hourly wages,” she said. “If they don’t go in, they lose a day’s pay. Some of the parents are worried that they are going to lose their jobs if they don’t go in. “I asked them if they ever considered that some of the parents in low income jobs are going to have to leave their children unattended or with siblings too young to babysit.” Antonio said some of her employees are salaried but three are on hourly wages so they lose a day of pay as well. No further strike days have been yet planned by the BCTF, but the government has ordered all secondary teachers to be locked out June 25 and 26, and all teachers locked out on June 27. “The concerns of operators and parents have been noted and this decision will be re-visited,” Novak said.

Do schools have a plan for spills? Meeting over pipeline safety set for Thursday evening BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

hen Michelle Cooper’s three children play in their school yard, they and their classmates are sometimes right above a buried 30-inch pipe that carries Alberta oil sands crude to the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. Kinder Morgan’s 1,150-kilometre Trans Mountain oil pipeline runs right underneath Watson elementary’s school yard and right behind Vedder middle school’s. The pipe has been there without incident (in Chilliwack) for 60 years, but Cooper and many parents know little about it. As news coverage has increased over Kinder Morgan’s application to the National Energy Board (NEB) to triple the capacity of the pipeline by adding a second 36-inch pipe, so too has interest from parents like Cooper wondering if they should be concerned. “There are 400-odd kids in this school,” Cooper said. “What about the school?

What happens if there is an accident or a problem?” All good questions that she said neither Watson administration nor the schools Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) are answering to her satisfaction. “I’ve been getting the runaround the whole time.”

› News { TERRY FOX, from page A3 } Hodgson explained. “We were sort of laughing and saying, ‘Where were you three months ago?’” It wasn’t a lack of community support that saw the run cancelled, but a disconnect between interested volunteers and the foundation. Part of the problem, Hodgson says, stems from a world crowded in awareness campaigns; the idea of holding a run or walk for charity is more popular than ever, and t h e p u b l i c ’s attention is split into tiny pieces between them. “ T h a t ’s t h e unfortunate nature of charities and non-profits in general— there is a crowded marketplace,” Hodgson said. “That being said, I think [the Terry Fox Foundation] stands out in particular, because there is such transparency. I think a lot of people really appreciate knowing where their dollar goes. [I]t’s very very evident on every publication: we donate 84 cents of every dollar, and we really are able to maintain that. “I think people are seeking out that consistency,” she concluded. “If they are going to volunteer, we’re the ones that { SPILL, from page A4 } route of the pipeline. The group has “redflagged” four schools in Chilliwack as being within 200 metres of the pipeline and a further 15 that are “black-flagged” as “within blocks” of the route. The other two close schools include Unsworth and John Calvin elementary, and where the route crosses Tyson Road is pretty close to 200 metres away from Mt. Slesse. Major has helped to organize a free public meeting at Sardis secondary on Thursday to discuss the pipeline and the safety hazards if there were ever to be a spill. “Spills from [diluted bitumen] pipelines like the one running through our community have proven to have serious negative impacts to the health of other afflicted communities, particularly on the children,” Major said in a press release. While the existing pipeline runs under Watson’s sports field, and the company says it wants to use the existing right-of-way wherever possible for the second line, recently proposed routing changes shows Watson would be avoided. The changed route

Volunteers stepping up they go to.” Ultimately, Hodgson said the Foundation is in a transitional period: a new generation of supporters are beginning to volunteer their time as Fox’s original supporters find themselves unable to dedicate the same time or energy to the cause. “The new generation is coming up to take on the challenges,” she explained. “It’s interesting to see the n e w re v i val… people who are going to step up to the plate.” And next week, the Foundation will reveal the individual taking up the reins of the Chilliwack Terry Fox Run and leading the forefront of that revival. The Foundation is still looking for community members to fill spots as committee members and day-of volunteers—planning the route, reaching out to sponsors, and supporting the coordinator.

Boating accident claims life

n Abbotsford woman died on the weekend after a boat accident on the Harrison River. On May 31, Agassiz RCMP members arrived at the Sandpiper Boat Launch on Morris Valley Road to find one of four occupants of a boat seriously injured.

The group was travelling up river in an 18-foot Glastron powerboat when it struck a log chained to a boom, according to police. As a result of the impact, a 22-year-old Abbotsford woman

sustained a serious head injury. She later died from her injuries. “This is a really tragic accident,” said Upper Fraser Valley RCMP spokeperson Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “By all accounts, everyone

on the boat was doing everything right. There will be no criminal investigation into the cause of this accident.”  The BC Coroner Service now has the file and the name of the deceased has not yet been released. - Staff

Meeting set for tonight through that portion of Sardis would run along the hydro right-of-way avoiding not only the elementary school but also the backyards of homes on Roseberry and Montcalm. Interestingly for residents of Popkum, another routing change shows a section previously to run near Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park north of the highway has been changed to follow the original pipeline corridor south of the highway. This would mean it would run through the northwest corner of Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park, a park that didn’t exist when the Trans Mountain Pipeline was built in 1952. ◗ The meeting is Thursday, June 5 at 7 p.m. at Sardis secondary’s MacAstocker Theatre.

et’s not kid ourselves: teenagers don’t always follow the rules. And when it comes to adhering to the legal drinking age, most of them aren’t patiently waiting for their 19th birthday before having their first sip of alcohol. Graduation season is a time that should be joyous and celebratory, but every year Grade 12 students die in this country because partying got out of hand in one way or another. These are preventable tragedies that nobody in our community wants to see happen. Graduation marks a time of big change. The last 13 years of K-12 education is behind you, and you’re transitioning into the next phase of your life: adulthood. Your teachers, school counsellors and parents have repeatedly told you that the choices you make now (Should I work or go to school after I graduate? What do I want to get a degree in?) will have an impact on the rest of your life. The same logic applies to grad night. If you choose to celebrate this rite of passage with alcohol, be responsible. “Be careful and go out with a plan. What are you going to do and how are you going to be safe?” he says. That includes ensuring you are celebrating in a safe manner, in a safe location with people you know and trust. Most importantly, that’s ensuring you have a safe ride home—whether it’s a designated driver or waking up your parents at 3 a.m. asking to get picked up.

Online Blockwatch turns up heat A

fter a recent Chilliwack RCMP press release about crime hot spots, I decided to take a drive over to the Woodbine/Hazel area south of Yale Road to see what was up. As if I, an interloper who doesn’t live in the neighbourhood, would see anything of criminal or news interest spending just a few minutes in the area. What I did see after spending no more than 20 minutes in my car driving the streets was about five suspicious looking guys riding bikes. Don’t stop the presses, and don’t call the cops. There is nothing new about suspected thieves seen riding around neighbourhoods in all communities on two wheels. The stereotype is ubiquitous: A helmetless male in his 20s, usually white, sometimes First Nations, is seen pedalling around with a bag over the handlebars and/or a backpack. Criminal! Well, maybe. Or maybe he’s a student. Maybe he’s a low-income fellow doing what he can to get to his low-paying job. Or maybe he’s unemployed, down

PAUL J. HENDERSON @peejayaitch on his luck, cruising around looking for deposit recyclables and anything else he can find. And yes, maybe he’s casing out your house, looking to steal your cigarette butts, your roses, your power tools, your purse, your bike or your truck. There has been a growing Facebook vigilantism going on with regard to this sort of thing, and a corresponding backlash from folks upset about, well, disparaging people on bikes with backpacks. A Facebook group with more than 4,500 members called “Beware! You Need to Know!” has seen an uptick in postings about property crime and theft in recent months. In recent weeks, there have been more and more postings about suspicious guys riding bikes in neighbourhoods. “Woodbine and Yale Rd this morning

around 6 am saw a guy riding a bike with someones recycle bin, looked like it was full of cans,” someone posted. Others reacted angrily defending those who ride bikes for various reasons. Maybe it was his own recycling bin and he was returning some cans? But on my incredibly brief visit, looking with the jaundiced eye of a reporter for someone doing something wrong, I was surprised. I saw one man with ripped pants riding a bike with a chariot-style trailer, followed by another dodgy looking guy. They pulled into a driveway and, just based on body language and attitude, appeared like they belonged there. Then saw a young man in his 20s riding a bike down Hazel. He wasn’t wearing a helmet, but he had a full-face motorcyle-style helmet on his handlebars. He was wearing gloves and had a large plastic bag over the handlebars, too. So I followed him for about five minutes and as long as I could. He rode up and down streets in the area in a totally random fashion the entire time, to the

point where I finally lost him as he rode through Portage Park. Was he up to no good? I don’t know. His actions seemed like he was either casing out homes for later crimes or he was looking for opportunities. But maybe he was looking for empties to bring to the recycling depot. Or maybe he was bored, looking for friends. Or maybe it was none of my damned business what he was going. “I ride my bike sometimes in a hoodie. I also don’t wear a helmet. So now that makes me a bad person . . . . You guys saying these things are clearly bitter and not any better then they people you are bitching about,” someone posted on Facebook. I think the online Blockwatch that has been going on of late serves a good purpose in the community. There does seem to be a lurking danger, however, that the social media vigilantism, the public shaming and intense focus on suspicious guys on bikes, might be acted upon in the real world and someone innocent might be targeted. But maybe I’m just paranoid.

Not that difficult to start a community heritage committee

Editor: I enjoyed reading the article last week about another home in Chilliwack receiving its official heritage designation (Brock House gets heritage status, Chilliwack Times, May 29). The City of Chilliwack has also recently updated the Heritage Designation bylaw. These are some positive things happening. I do, however, have a concern with the city’s ongoing lack of interest in establishing a community heritage committee. It was mentioned in the article and in the bylaw update that the reason they do not recommend a heritage committee for Chilliwack is, in a nutshell, that not enough heritage homeowners are interested in getting their homes designated. I would like to make a correction and explain that a community heritage Ccommittee is not established to represent the interests of private homeowners who want to get their homes designated. A heritage committee is established by the mayor and council members for the benefit of the entire community, and we are the only city in the Lower Mainland, in fact most of B.C., without one. Most community heritage committees (CHCs) are made up of members with diverse knowledge and experience. For instance, a heritage committee would likely include a legal expert, an architect or engineer, someone working in the trades, a heritage professional, a museum representative, a First Nations representative, a student, an educator, a realtor, and always a council member. The heritage committee would likely have a mandate to provide accurate information to council when requested (for example, when council members are making land use and development decisions that involve heritage assets). A heritage committee would also promote and encourage heritage activities, which in turn contribute directly to the local economy and the general livability of our city. As well as being so beneficial, CHCs

Beware the power of momma bears Editor: Inside every mother, is a momma bear. It’s what gets awoken and comes out in force if her child gets picked on, unfairly treated, or is under threat. It is ferocious parental love and protection in action. It is a force to be reckoned with. And it could just be the missing factor in the stalemate between the B.C. teachers and the government. I’m not a school teacher, a union member, or part of the government. I am a mother. I have two sons, one in kindergarten and one in Grade 2. Our school is a good one, privileged even. But even now, unlike when I was at school, my kids have no music teacher, no art teacher. One person is both gym teacher and librarian. Both of our boys are in very full classes, and the numbers of students with special needs and behavioural challenges are high. Having volunteered a little in both classrooms, I know that I wouldn’t be able to control these groups, much less teach them. Yet these teachers do, day-

after-day, gracefully, with love. And now to think even bigger class sizes are on the table? Even less support staff? I don’t want to see my boys’ next 10 years spent in classes of 30 or more kids, half with special needs, and one lone teacher trying to put out fires all day, every day. We are surprisingly close to this already. My momma bear is waking. The teachers have compromised a great deal, and have drawn the line. They voted to strike as a last resort. In response the government says the teachers must be off site during recess and lunch. Last week, seeing all the teachers standing on the sidewalk in front of the school, I felt sick to my stomach. Indignant. When are they supposed to use the washroom? Where are they supposed to eat? These are the people who teach our children! Isn’t Canada supposed to be a first-world country? My momma bear is out. My husband and I work hard just to get by month to month. I care about my taxes and how that money is spent. The money is in the coffers. How else could the incentives be available for big businesses, like the LNG sector? What about investing in the public education of what could become generations of sharp, purposeful entrepreneurs to create energy and environmental solutions? We can’t afford private school, and I need to work, so homeschooling is not an option for us either. Nor should it have to be. I believe public education is essential to a democratic society. We’ll all be living in a society with the graduates of this system—I’d think we’d want it to be a good one that invests in its outcome. I want the best education for my kids. I want excellent teachers who are passionate about their jobs, committed to our kids, and who are well supported and well compensated. Doesn’t every momma bear? It’s time for all momma bears to awaken. Our cubs are threatened.

Roar to your MLA. Roar to your paper. Roar to your PAC (and have them roar to the BCCPAC) It’s time for parental love to get ferocious. If not, we’ll soon find that we’ll have missed our chance. And that apathy is a beast that is too strong for even a mother bear. Molly Armstrong Chilliwack

More money for more teacher work

Editor: Teachers are important and necessary people for the future of our children and society in general but what they are asking for is what everyone wants; more pay, less work. The demand for smaller classes and more teaching assistants is really a demand for less work. The average British Columbian has averaged a wage increase of 0.8 per cent over the last few years and teachers have averaged 2.5 per cent (The Fraser Institute). There is no shortage of teachers at present with three unemployed teachers for every job opening and the universities are churning out more teachers in a time of decreasing student numbers. If a few were to move to the frozen northern wastelands for higher salaries it would not hurt the supply. Many other professionals also make less money in B.C. than in Alberta or the Territories because B.C. is perceived to be a better place to live. I see the move to increased numbers in private schools as incredibly efficient, they receive 50 per cent of what a regular school does from the taxpayer and, as a bonus, they buy the land and build the schools for free. I believe that the teachers trade union opposes private schools because they lose their monopoly and the bargaining power that goes with it. A relatively small increase in the amount paid to the private schools would increase their number as more parents opt for control over their chil-

dren’s futures as prices come down. If the teachers are starving perhaps a pay increase could be granted with a corresponding increase in instructional days per year. John Elmore Chilliwack

Clark showing her manipulative side

Editor: The public needs to understand the issues concerning the recent Liberal government lockout of teachers. On May 21, Christy Clark’s administrator, Michael Marchbank, sent a letter to the BCTF outlining the parameters of the lockout, which has resulted in a 10 per cent teacher pay cut starting May 26. Teachers are directed: “not to work during recess or lunch hours” and; “not to attend their workplace earlier than 45 minutes before the commencement of their instructional time or later than 45 minutes after their instructional time.” Then, Clark’s Minister of Education, Peter Fassbender, clarified the government’s intention in the media by saying, “If teachers withdraw from participation in extracurricular or volunteer activities, they do so at the encouragement of the union and by their own choice.” Really? On the one hand, the government is telling teachers they are locked out from being at work; on the other hand, they are telling the public that teachers are free to work (as volunteers whose pay, incidentally, has just been cut by10 per cent and who may not be covered by WCB). Clark’s government is sending contradictory messages to parents and teachers, in effect, creating confusion, maligning dedicated teachers, and shifting blame to the BCTF. Premier Clark’s handling of the lockout is incompetent at best and maliciously manipulative at worst. Lynne Marvell Hope

› Faith Today BY EVANS HUNDERMARK Mountain View Church

I

n a discussion with a group of young people recently, I asked the question, “What do you most hope to accomplish with your life?” The answers surprised me. “Leave my mark on this world when I am gone; Make a difference; and, Die knowing I have accomplished something of value!” I say I was surprised because often our perspective of young people is that they are consumed with music, friends, Facebook and the latest computer game. The truth is, young people of our community are rich with dreams, hopes and the belief that they can make a positive and powerful change on our world. Two weeks ago a couple thousand young people from Yukon to Mexico met at Prospera Centre for the Historymaker youth conference. These

Building a youthful community

were not just young people out to party or looking for a good time, but young people looking to shaping history through positive impact on their communities and around the world. Historymaker partners with World Vision and other ministries where money from the conference is directed, amongst other things, to feeding children and putting wells into needy communities. The energy, motivation and even money for this came from the youth at the conference. But this difference ultimately comes from a God-given vision burning within their hearts, a sense that God is calling and empowering them to see beyond themselves and to “be Jesus” to a hurting and sick world. And

whether you believe in Jesus or not, you have to agree Jesus lived a most selfless life, giving of Himself for others, pointing them to God, and ultimately being willing to die for a world He loved. Historymaker served to affirm our young people, that they have value in this world, and that they can also have a positive influence, but that impact comes firstly through a relationship with Jesus—which begins with accepting that we are sinners and broken people, then, believing that Jesus died for our sins on our behalf, then by submitting our lives to God, and then living like Jesus to change our world. In fact, our only hope for a positive and happy future lies with this relationship with God, and His hand on our lives.

One attendee, Sarah McQuade (19) discovered this personally. “We are challenged to go out there and change our world; to live for Jesus openly, so everyone will see, and be confident in who we are in Christ. I have been personally challenged each year not just to have a fun time and then forget about it, but to Shine for Jesus and be Alive in him all year long”. Another attendee, Savannah (15) said, “God is challenging me to sacrifice unhealthy choices . . . and changing my life in so many ways.” Imagine a city full of similar minded young people whose goal is to live this way. I found it sad to see an event that has such a positive outcome and mission, be strongly criticized in the media a

few weeks back. We live in a society where our young people are subject to so many negative and destructive influences, and where hope for their future sometimes seems so unsure and bleak. Conferences and events like Historymaker, are like a breath of fresh air, and should be embraced for what they bring to our youth, and ultimately to us as a city. To rob our youth of such events, is to rob ourselves. To create an environment that welcomes such events, opens the door for our youth to become selfless, energetic, and productive members of our community, who not only model their lives on the most selfless person that ever lived (Jesus Christ), but who are devoted to “making a difference” in the city they call home. ◗ Evans Hundermark is a pastor with Mountain Vioew Church.

City hit with lawsuit over Aevitas BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he coalition of groups opposed to a hazardous waste facility next to the Fraser River has filed a lawsuit against the City of Chilliwack to set aside the rezoning for the plant. The coalition, which includes First Nations, environmental and recreational fishing organizations, argues the city’s rezoning process violated the Local Government Act. “It is striking that the Notice makes no mention of hazardous waste, toxins or any other term that might flag . . . that the facility is not handling

Arreaga-Escobar back in jail

A man who terrorized a group of teenagers at a Port Moody slumber party four years ago is going to jail again, this time for much longer. In Chilliwack court on May 28, Benjamin Carols Arreaga-Escobar was sentenced to 12 months in prison and two years probation for one count of sexual interference of a person under 16. The 24-year-old’s offence dates back to Nov. 9, 2012. Two and a half years before that, Arreaga-Escobar barged into a teenager sleepover at the Highland Way Recreation Centre in Port Moody dressed like a ninja. He came through the door and

newspapers, bottles, cans or other non-hazardous materials,” said Andrew Gage of West Coast Environmental Law. In March, the coalition met with representatives for Aevitas, the company proposing to build the plant, and the group emphasized in a press release it has no concerns about the company or the facility, it is simply the location just metres away from the Fraser River in the Cattermole Lands. Mayor Sharon Gaetz said she cannot comment on the case as it is before the courts, but she did direct residents to the city’s website to find information about the project.

“There is detailed information online about the stringent safeguards and the multi-barrier approach that will be taken to protect the river and surrounding environment.” Because of the rezoning for this plant, the Outdoor Recreation Council (ORC) of British Columbia recently named the stretch of the Fraser River past Chilliwack as one of the top 10 endangered rivers in the province for 2014. If the lawsuit is successful, it wouldn’t necessarily nix the project or even the location. City hall would have to restart the rezoning application process with a new public hearing.

UFV golf coach looks to conquer Canada . . . then the world

T

he University of the Fraser Valley Cascades are a confident group heading into the Canadian University/College Golf Championship. And why wouldn’t they be? Both the men’s and women’s teams are coming off dominating gold-medal performances at the 2013 Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association PING Golf National Championships. The University/College event is being held this week at the Southwood Golf & Country Club in Winnipeg. UFV’s men’s team is ranked No. 1 in the country, while the ladies come in at No. 4. Although minor adjustments have been made to the respective rosters, the core group remains the same heading to Winnipeg. “We have worked very hard as a group over the winter and spring to prepare for this event,” said UFV coach Chris Bertram, who was named the 2013 CCAA Golf Coach of the Year last October. “Our players are individually and collectively playing some very solid golf right now, and I am confident we will be in the mix coming down the stretch.” Bertram will have a busy month in June. He’s also coaching Team Cana-

Bertram has never represented his country at the international level, but his grandfather did win a gold medal for Canada in hockey at the 1924 Olympics in nearby Chamonix, France. “The idea of wearing the maple leaf has always been a dream of mine,” said Bertram. “I plan to embrace every sec-

ond of the experience.” One athlete he will be counting on in Winnipeg is UFV’s Aaron Pauls, who finished second overall at the 2013 CCAA Golf National Championships. Pauls will also be representing Canada in Switzerland. “Aaron is a tremendously gifted golfer, maybe the best overall player we have ever had at UFV,” said Bertram. “He’s got everything a coach at the varsity level wants in an athlete—play-

ing ability, scholastic talent, and all of the other intangibles like mentoring younger players and active ambassador for the university wherever he goes.” These impressive attributes, along with a growing collection of wins, made him an obvious choice for the national team and Bertram believes the sky is the limit for the young golfer. “As much success as he had already, I think we are just seeing the beginning

of what he is capable of.” Two other CCAA members will compete in the team event at the University/College Championship. Men’s teams from Humber College and Grant MacEwan University will participate in the competition, which features the nation’s top student-athlete golfers. For that reason, this is a special event—one that Bertram and his teams are ready for. “It’s the deepest field of any event we play and it’s fun to get out and play against some of the bigger schools in Canada that we don’t typically see throughout our regular season,” he said. “We are ready to go, and we plan to do everything we can to win this championship.” UFV is a proud member of the CCAA and the No. 1 men’s ranking is a significant achievement for their program and the association. “It adds some much deserved credibility to the CCAA and the competition that exists at this level,” said Bertram. “The Canadian university golf landscape is a bit scattered with certain schools opting to play south of the border or elsewhere, but the bottom line is the CCAA is the highest level of varsity golf in Canada and we are proud to be a part of that.”

Roberts will wear ‘C’ for Chiefs

T

he Chilliwack Chiefs announced defenceman Eric Roberts as captain for the 2014-15 season. Roberts is entering his third full season with the Chiefs and has appeared in 108 regular season games with the Chiefs. Roberts is no stranger to wearing the C, having worn it at the Atom, Peewee and Bantam levels as a member of the Abbotsford Minor Hockey Association. Chiefs Head Coach and G eneral Manager Jason Tatarnic says selecting Roberts was an

easy choice. “In spending some time with Eric it was obvious in our discussions that he would be a great person to lead our team,” Ta t a r n i c said. “He has a tremendous work ethic. He battles hard and we want to be a hard team to play against in all zones. We expect Eric to lead our team and prepare them for those battles. We are going to strive for excellence and it starts in the dressing room

under Eric’s leadership.” Roberts is thrilled to take on the role and understands what is expected from him. “ I t ’s a tremendous honour. As a leader on the team I will make sure every player is 100 per cent committed to what needs to be done to win,” he said. “The Chilliwack Chiefs are a family and every player is a leader in their own way. Nobody will be along for the ride. Each player will

give their all day in and day out so that our team will succeed. The harder we battle in practice, the easier the games will become.” Roberts adds that leadership is not just something that happens on the ice.

ership group made up of two local entrepreneurs that manage a number of successful businesses, the most well known of which is Petcurean pet foods. The award will further spur the owners who have new branding and marketing plans in the works. ◗ Old Yale beers are available at government liquor stores, private stores and at the brewery itself at unit 4, 7965 Venture Pl.

Old Yale stout wins beer of the year an Brewing Awards over the last decade, but never has one of their beers taken home the top honour. Caza is the award-winning brewmaster at Old Yale Brewery, which he founded back in 2000. He stopped brewing in October 2010, but a trio of local investors stepped up to revive Old Yale in late 2011. With full-time jobs of their own, however, the new owners made the decision this year to sell the brewery. Enter The 2Story Group, an own-

off on his bike. Christine Carnrite knows all about cigarette butt thieves who jump fences and grab whatever they can. She’s had a similar thief visiting her property for some time. And, like the Iezzis, she has security cameras. On Sunday night, it happened again. She called the RCMP Monday morning and while an officer was at her house looking at security tapes, the thief rode by on a bike. “I called out ‘that’s him’ and the officer was off like a lightning bolt behind him,” Carnrite wrote on Facebook. She told the Times her returning thief is not the same guy as the Iezzis’ and despite being caught by a stroke of luck by police, he wasn’t charged. “No, sadly not arrested but fair warned and labelled officially a suspect according to the officer,” she said. “And told if he trespassed on my property again he’d be arrested and charged. He didn’t deny jumping my fence, he totally admitted it that he was looking for smoke butts.”

Near-constant web postings of B&Es and theft

Petty theft, property crime and vehicle break-ins are a real problem in Chilliwack, particularly downtown. Last week Chilliwack RCMP issued a press release with hotspots for vehicle thefts. The areas included Woodbine and Hazel streets north of First Avenue, and a large area between Wellington to the north, Bernard to the south, Young to the east and the Landing are to the west. The first two months of 2014 saw a 25 per cent increase in thefts from vehicles from 166 in 2013 to 208 this year. For their part, the Iezzis feel frustrated with the property crime situation in their neighbourhood and the fact that the same thieves keeping doing it with few repercussions. Postings about break-ins and theft on the Facebook group Beware You Need to Know are near constant. Nicole doesn’t think either her cameras or posting on social media is really helping or acting as a deterrent, but at

“They don’t go to jail. They don’t get a fine. Jail doesn’t help the problem anyway.” The Iezzis lock their doors, have solid fences, installed surveillance cameras and, on one occasion, even shot at a bike-riding thief with paintball guns. “What more can we do,” Nicole said. “I can’t affect solutions. We are ineffectual.” But there is more that residents can and should do, according to Sabine Mendez, the co-ordinator for Chilliwack Healthier Community (CHC). CHC hosted a public safety workshop on May 28 and have two more planned for June 25 and July 30. The events sprang out of public forums held recently, which identified and prioritized community concerns in a number of areas. The workshops are hosted by local RCMP community police officers. There are obvious tips such as lock your doors, leave valuables out of plain sight in vehicles, but a lot of things that people don’t think of. For example, it’s { See BREAKING POINT, page A21 }

important to record serial numbers of items that have them, and photograph and even engrave numbers on items that don’t. To that end, the Chilliwack Community Policing office has a free engraving tool that residents can borrow. But one of the most important tools is what is called Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). CPTED includes such things as fencing, deadbolts, alarms, window locks and proper lighting. But also examining landscaping to ensure unobstructed views with good visibility. “Allow good people to see into areas and make bad people to feel they will be seen.” For the Iezzis, these things are all well and good, but the public safety tips feel a little like blaming the victims. “They [thieves] have all the rights,”

Nicole said. “They have all the support. They have permission and we do not. We are told you should have locked your door, you shouldn’t have stuff. We are told you should leave your cigarette butts on the other side of the fence so he doesn’t feel the need to clean them out. “Or we are told, you should move. But who’s going to buy our place?”

Agriculture

agriculture in the valley Ever changing face of agriculture

A

ccording to the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) 2014 economic sector profile, the local farming community has seen more than a couple shifts and changes—from the number and type of farms in Chilliwack to the number of workers employed in this sector, and how that compares to the rest of the province. For instance, while Chilliwack lays claim to more farmland than any other community in the Lower Mainland, the profile of that farmland has shifted: there are fewer dairy and beef farms in Chilliwack than two years ago, while every other type of livestock has increased. Notably, almost 100 more poultry farms have sprung up in Chilliwack since CEPCO’s 2012 report. You’ll also find a higher number of sheep, pig, llama and alpaca farms. The profile notes there are 10 fewer greenhouses, although Rainbow Greenhouses continues to be the number one agricultural employer in Chilliwack. It’s important to note these numbers are on a time delay: CEPCO’s 2012 report draws from 2008 Census of Agriculture data, while this newest 2014 report draws from 2012 data.

➤ BY THE NUMBERS

Total Farm Capital

Dairy Cattle and Calves Overall decrease: 2012 — 473 farms 2014 — 456 farms

force is still about double the provincial average, although both have increased slightly over the last two years. However, the profile notes, the spectrum of agricultural workers has shifted; with an increase in automated equipment, the demand for manual labour has decreased, while seasonal work in greenhouses and food processing has increased.

The 2014 profile shows growth in many places: it states there are more than 100 new farms and more than a $1 billion increase in agricultural land and buildings, with 271 new hectares added to Chilliwack’s agricultural sector since the 2012 profile. Overall, Chilliwack lays claim to more farmland than any other community in the Lower Mainland. Chilliwack’s agricultural work

➤ From growing food at home to the politics of the ALR, The Eaten Path is a new, ongoing feature that looks at what we eat, how it is produced and the path our food takes to our table.

There’s an app for that BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

I

f you don’t buy direct from a farmer or hunt your own animals in the hillsides of B.C., you probably don’t know where your meat comes from. If you want to know, a new iPhone app created by the B.C. Association of Abattoirs under its new branding as BC Meats can help. Open up the app and focus on Chilliwack and you’ll find that the restaurant at Rainbow Country Inn sells beef grown in B.C. Nick’s Pizzeria at Tyson and Watson has local pork as does the Black Forest Restaurant in Harrison Hot Springs. As for markets and grocery stores, you can get local chicken, pork and duck from Clan-

cy’s on Promontory; pork, lamb, beef and bison from Fraser Valley Meats on Vedder; or chicken and duck from Meadow Valley Meats on Nowell. And much, much more. “More than ever people want to know where their food comes from and they want it to be as local as possible,” says Gillian Watt, program manager for BC Meats for BC Markets. As it is now, the app has much better coverage for grocery stores and markets, as there are just the three restaurants above listed in the local area. A spokesperson for BC Meats says restaurants and retail operations can get listed with either a basic or premium subscription, and listings are added all the time. The BC Meats app is available for iPhone or Android devies.

ALR has always been anathema to politicians T he Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) never stood a chance when Premier Christy Clark appointed two long-term opponents of the provincial farming land bank to high-profile jobs. The Agricultural Land Commission Amendment Act, known as Bill 24, divides the ALR into two zones, 90 per cent of which is now available for other uses—most importantly, natural gas development. Former Agriculture Minister Pat Pimm’s buddy wanted a rodeo on his ranch. The Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) said “no way,” so Peace River developer Terry McLeod built it anyway. And cabinet minister Bill Bennett, like many BC Liberals, just hates the ALR and always has. “We do not need people from outside our region telling us we should cease developing our tourism industry,” Bennett said in a 2012 email obtained by the Globe and Mail to ALC chair Richard Bullock about

PAUL J. HENDERSON

@peejayaitch

an RV park a constituent wanted to develop. Pimm’s constituent, McLeod, ignored the ALC ruling knowing that the appointment of his MLA as ag minister meant he could do whatever he wanted. But back in 2012, Pimm sent a reply-to-all on the Bennett email, one he’d probably like to take back now. “Mr. Bullock seems to be able to tell a great story but to this point I have not seen any delivery. Here is an opportunity to actually muster up some support for our team but instead we will ignore it and go out and find some way to give the Indians more money which doesn’t get me one vote! I am very tired of this kind of nonsense.”

Not even one vote? Pimm doesn’t think a single First Nations person would vote for him? Or did he mean people from India? Bennett said he forgot his friend Pimm said such things and he was “distressed” to see it resurface. Pimm, who is on medical leave, apologized. Grand Chief Stewart Phillip of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs didn’t accept, calling Pimm’s comments “reprehensible.” But what of Bill 24 and its changes to the ALR for folks here in Chilliwack? It may seem easy to mock the rigid ideological and selfish hatred of the ALR from folks in northern and interior communities while we sit down here in prime farmland, with soil productivity hard to match on the planet. But don’t forget, the ALR is anathema to the vast majority of elected officials at every level of Chilliwack politics and has been since it was created. Municipal politicians may not

Brine for the best BBQ’d meat

A

lthough men have been assigned the stereotype of working the backyard barbecue, it is a joy that is shared by all home culinary enthusiasts. It’s a summertime passion. The smoky essence of smoldering charcoal starts my mouth watering as my mind conjures up recollections of flame-licked meats, and fire-caramelized vegetables. With a few basic tips, you can overcome any barbecuing intimidation you may have. Overcooking lean meats is the most common mistake, as people want to ensure that meat is fully cooked before serving. Although it is imperative for poultry and ground meats to be fully cooked, this does not give you the right to transform them into dry charred remains. Brining can help protect light-meat poultry and lean pork. This is a technique that involves soaking in a salt-water solution for a period of time prior to cooking. Not only does this add moisture to the centre of the meat, but also seasoning, as the salt-saturated water is drawn in. A simple brining formula would be: one quarter cup table salt dissolved in four cups of water for pieces of poultry or lean pork. Let the meat sit in the brine for at least one hour in the refrigerator. Remove from the brine, pat them dry, and cook as you normally would. This brining process will provide a moisture protection shield to help keep

On Cooking fully cooked meats juicy. However, this is only a safeguard—overcooking is still possible, but this lessens the chance. The only other consideration you may need to give your recipe is the amount of seasoning. The meat will already be seasoned somewhat from the salt in the brine, so back off on the saltshaker. Try this technique the next time you are barbequing chicken breasts, pork chops, pork tenderloins or pork loins. You will be impressed with the results. The salt used can be any salt: kosher, sea, etc. The important aspect is to ensure that the granules are the same size as table salt. A coarser grind will result in less salt per equal measure as more air is trapped between the larger particles. It is important to mention that this is the simplest form of brine: water and salt. There are many more complex recipes available on the Internet that will bring flavour and moisture, but this easy brine is a straightforward starting point. Another essential pointer to bring up is that red meats are typically not brined; marinating is better for red meats, but that’s slated for another column topic.

› Community WATER PROJECT COMES TO LIFE Submitted photos

WE ARE LOOKING FOR

Twenty students from Sardis Elementary’s Skyhawks Green Team are seeing the fruits of their labour after raising $4,000 to build a clean water pump and cistern for a Mexican food bank. The team formed in 2013 to lower energy usage at the school, and took on what they dubbed the Water for Life project with the passing of former CFB Chilliwack administrative officer Wayne Dehnke, who was working on the project when he died of a heart attack this past January. Donna Boucher, a neighbour of Dehnke’s and the teacher sponsor of Skyhawks Green Team, introduced the kids to the project and is both awed and proud of what they’ve accomplished, surpassing the original goal of $3,000.

If you go Summer Reading Club: Starts at all three local libraries June 16. Find suggestions and program information online at www.fvrl.bc.ca Beyond the Deepwoods by Chris Riddell and Paul Stewart In an off-beat coming-of-age tale, Twig finds out that he’s adopted, and that his loving family of wood trolls isn’t related to him at all. Setting out to find his real family, he loses his way in the woods and begins a whole new adventurous life. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer Artemis Foul is too clever to leave well enough alone; the genius child of an Irish crime lord, he decides to infiltrate fairyland. Perhaps the best description of the book comes from the author: “Die Hard with fairies.”

reading list For the youngster: These books are guaranteed to please—not only kids, but adults. Reading to kids has never been easier with books as hilarious and visually interesting as these. Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems The tale of a beloved stuffed animal and the stubbornness of children. Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems The instructions are harder than they sound—this pigeon really wants to drive the bus, and he makes some convincing arguments. Not a Box by Antoinette Portis This rabbit protagonist claims the box he sits in is something else—in fact, it can be just about anything. The Arrival by Shaun Tan Entirely wordless, this book is the perfect leaping-off point for telling your own stories. What is happening in these incredibly detailed drawings, and why? For the kid: The Dragon Slayers by Bruce Coville Coville’s frank and funny prose snatches up a couple unlikely dragon slayers and puts them in the middle of an adventure, whether they want it or not. Frindle by Andrew Clements Up against his dictionary-loving fifth-grade teacher, mischief-maker Nicholas Allen decides to turn the power of words to his own advantage. Why call a pen a pen when you can call it a frindle? Inkheart by Cornelia Funke The perfect tale for a bookworm—what are you supposed to do when characters from your favourite book pour out of the pages and turn your life into a terrifying adventure?

Summer Reading Club Book a vacation with FVRL’s

BY DESSA BAYROCK Special to the Times

S

un screen? Check. Bathing suit? Check. Sun glasses? Check. Novel? Check. With the weather growing warmer and clearer with every passing day, Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) wants you to know that your most versatile summer accessory is a good book. And with a little bit of luck, reading might just win you a prize or two this summer. FVRL’s annual Summer Reading Club (SRC) opens in Chilliwack on June 16, and the idea is simple: keep reading. If kids only read while school is in session, FVRL program director Kim Davison warns, they run the risk of losing their progress. “It’s called the summer slide,” Davison explains. “Summer Reading Club was conceived as

a way to combat that, to get kids reading, to keep their reading routines through the summer so they don’t lose ground during those two months.” And the summer reading club is geared at all demographics, not just kids. Picking up a book benefits patrons of all ages, and one of the best ways parents can help their kids is by leading by example. “If you have a set time that you spend together reading every day, even if it’s just for ten minutes, that’s a good way to do

it,” Davison says. “Just building words and reading into everything—being aware of it.” There are four programs available through the Chilliwack libraries, aimed at preschoolers, elementary students, teens, and adults. Last year saw nearly 19,000 participants in the programs across the Fraser Valley, which Davison attributes to weekly reading prizes as well as in-library programs. This summer will see a variety of artists and performers visit the library, including a

magician, an improv theatre team, two Aboriginal artists-in-residence, and a mobile dairy—which Davison highly recommends. “It’s a bit alarming, but it’s neat,” she says with a laugh. “They bring cows and calves into the parking lot and demonstrate the milking and just how it all works.” And, of course, there will be books—the quintessential summer accessory. “There’s no place like the public library,” Davison concludes with a smile. “It’s all free and fun, and tons to learn, and new friends to make.” ◗ A variety of programs run at the Chilliwack, Sardis and Yarrow libraries all summer; stop by the information desk to get book recommendations, or find suggestions and program information online at www. fvrl.bc.ca.

For the teen: You by Austin Grossman If you have a love of video games, this book is up your alley; Russell takes a job at Black Arts Games to help produce their next hit game, but trying to find the root of an elusive glitch leads to unexpected echoes in his own life. The Magicians by Lev Grossman Think of it as magic realism: Quentin Coldwater leaves his ordinary, boring life behind, but earning magic requires intense and constant practice—and might just be more ordinary and boring than where he started. Except for the fact that he’s a magician—now what? An Abundance of Katherines by John Green With all the attention on The Fault in Our Stars recently, there’s no time like the present to return to some classic John Green and explore the life of Colin, who has dated 19 girls named Katherine and is trying to figure out what, exactly, that means. Feed by Mira Grant No summer is complete without zombies, which is exactly what Grant delivers. We skip to the year 2040, in which conventional media has been taken over by independent bloggers and the zombie virus strain sprang from the cure for cancer and the common cold. { See LIST, page A31 }

In the Zone: Fraser Valley theatre festival wraps up with locals winning a few awards BY DESSA BAYROCK Special to the Times

T

he Fraser Valley Zone Festival went out with a bang at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, wrapping up a week of short homegrown shows with a gala on Saturday night. Emerald Pig Theatrical Society from Maple Ridge won the top award and the right to continue on to the provincial festival in Kamloops later this summer, but members of the Chilliwack Players Guild (CPG) didn’t sneak out of the limelight entirely. Katy Lowe, who played Claire McQueen in CP G’s Calib an : House-Sitter, shared the outstanding actress award with Alaina Holland of the Langley Players. Debra and Graham Archer were presented with the Fraser Valley Zone Recognition award. Debra was the co-organizer of the festival this year. Malcom Mincher, who directed CPG show The Death of Me, was also recognized for his work with both the Zone Festival and the Chilliwack Players Guild.

Malcolm Mincher, who directed The Death of Me, was recognized for his work with both the Zone Festival and the Chilliwack Players Guild. Also representing Chilliwack, Emily Janzen won outstanding supporting actress for the role of Greta in Chilliwack School of Performing Arts show Leave of Absence. Ultimately, CPG played host to a successful festival this year; Zone Festival is hosted by a different community every year, hitting the stage at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for the first time this year. The last time CPG hosted the Zone Festival, it was

held at the old Chilliwack Arts Centre on College Street which is now Chilliwack Victory Church. “It’s just always wonderful to be the host of an event like this,” co-festival organizer Patti Lawn told The Times just before the Zone Festival shows hit the stage. “We get very caught up in what we do as a players guild, but it’s nice to sit back and watch the work of others and connect with people who share our love of theatre.”

Catching Chilliwack’s beauty BY DESSA BAYROCK Special to the Times

P

eople and pets stay away: this summer’s Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) photo contest is all about pure, unadulterated Chilliwack beauty. The best part? All funds pour right back into the Chilliwack community. FVHCF marketing and database co-ordinator Lisa Luky says highlighting Chilliwack’s beautiful scenery was a natural choice when they started bouncing around ideas for a Chilliwack General Hospital fundraiser. “Tons of people take their camera out and about and all over the place,” Luky says. “There’s iPhone photography now, so everyone’s got a camera with them.” The fundraiser is a two-part process; the photograph entry fees will cover the cost of printing a calendar with the best 12 images from

the contest, and calendar sales in the fall will be the main fundraiser. All proceeds will be passed on to the hospital, which is currently in the midst of renovations. After all, it’s all about keeping it in the community. “When we do a project in a community, or if a donor gives us money from a community, it stays in that community,” Luky says, explaining FVHCF’s mandate. The organization supports hospitals in Chilliwack, Mission, Abbotsford, and Hope through fundraisers like this one, ranging from Run for Mom to charity breakfasts. With a staff of only five people between all four communities, Luky says there’s a lot of legwork— but it’s worth it, especially with such strong community support. London Drugs donated a $250

gift card for first prize in contest, and Luky is in the process of organizing other businesses to sell the calendar when the contest ends in the fall. But the first step is getting the photos together—and the FVHCF team can’t wait to see what they get. “People are pretty proud of how beautiful it is in Chilliwack—you’ve got the mountains, you’ve got the farms—so it’s kind of a natural fit,” Luky concludes with a smile. “We have all summer.” ◗ The contest deadline is Sept. 15, and the entry fee is $20 for the first photo and $10 for each additional entry. Guidelines specify scenery only—no people or pets. Submit photos in jpeg format to FVHCF1@ gmail.com and find more information at www.FVHCF.org/events.
