Chilliwack RCMP are reporting another “clean sweep” in its program to disrupt drug dealers and slam the door on break-ins in the Chilliwack area. A 38-year-old man and 38-year-old woman, both of Chilliwack, were arrested Friday after a search warrant was executed at a home in the 50000-block Lookout Road. For ty-four marijuana plants were seized, along with more than 50 items that police believe were stolen during break-and-enters in the Chilliwack and Ryder Lake areas. The seized items include power tools, antiques, art work, jewelry, furniture, computers and personal identification. “Investigators are continuing to determine the rightful owners of the property,” Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. Cpl. Kurt Bosnell, a member of the Chilliwack RCMP’s crime reduction unit, said police are hoping the search warrant will end a rash of property crimes that has been happening in the Ryder Lake area. The suspect couple, Mark Perkins and Kimberley Gribbon, have been charged with drug possession and several counts of possession of stolen property. Police are asking anyone living near the Lookout Road home to report anyone now living in the residence since a no-occupancy order was made by the city as a result of the marijuana grow-op.

City parks worker Dan Langelaan rescues a duckling at the Landing Leisure Centre on Thursday morning. The mama duck was swimming in a pond outside the Leisure Centre with her 10 ducklings, when nine of them got sucked into a pipe leading to the sewer at about 9:30 in the morning. Leisure Centre members, city staff and SPCA employees spent about two hours rescuing the little feathered friends which were only a couple of weeks old. Eventually, they were all returned to their mother. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Charities set to vote on bingo deal Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack officials won’t be revisiting their approval of a new community gaming centre with slot machines now that the sale of Chilliwack Bingo Association to a gaming corporation is pending. “No, it was a quasi-judicial decision we made in September 2009 to approve the community gaming centre proposal,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “It was based on the

facts of the day that were available to us.” Great Canadian Gaming announced Monday it had inked a sales agreement with Chilliwack Bingo to purchase its operations and business assets, with subject removal projected for next month. Coun. Sue Attrill said the proposed transaction doesn’t change anything for her, despite the somewhat surprising nature of it for Chilliwack. “The reason why I voted in favour originally was that slots are

a legal form of entertainment. A lot of people were heading out of town to gamble in other communities,” she said. “I think in the end they will still do well and bingo will remain a strong form of entertainment for those who want it.” Although the mayor said council is not “privy” to any of the confidential details of the sales deal from Great Canadian Gaming, Gaetz said she’s confident the local nonprofit groups will be in the driver’s seat. “It’s my understanding in the

current agreement they get 20 years of revenue. So whatever they are looking at would have to be equal to or better than what they have,” she said. “It’s common sense to me and I think the democratic process will prevail. We believe in our charities.” In fact, representatives from the 49 member groups that make up the Chilliwack Bingo Association will ultimately be deciding its future. Continued: BINGO/ p8

Strahl’s absence at candidate meetings draws questions Robert Freeman

asked for their views on missing all-candidates meetings at an allcandidates meeting hosted last week by the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce. Strahl repeated his answer that in trying to reach all parts of the huge Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding, he had made “prior commitments” that prevented him from attending an all-candidates meetings in Hope, and one hosted by UFV students in Chilliwack. This week, the final week of the election campaign, Strahl missed

The Progress During every election campaign, a candidate will occasionally bow out of an all-candidates meeting because of scheduling conflicts. But none have done it so often, and with less explanation, than Conservative candidate Mark Strahl, pushing what would otherwise be a routine occurrence to the level of a campaign issue. Each of the candidates was

another all-candidates meeting with students at the Chilliwack Secondary School, which prompted the following email from a teacher. “At the time of our organizing the event, his office declared that the date and time worked for him, so there could not have been a prior commitment,” the teacher said. “It is unfortunate that almost a thousand staff and students were unable to meet the candidate who is perhaps most likely to become our next MP.”

But Strahl’s campaign manager Matthew Barker said there was a “misunderstanding” with the school, because he had talked to one of the student organizers and was adamant no commitment was made to attend the CSS meeting. He said Strahl had a “prior commitment” that prevented him from meeting with the students. However, Barker would not specify what the prior commitment was or where it took place. He also would not specify what prior commitment kept the candidate from

the UFV all-candidates meeting. Asked if this was part of an election campaign strategy, Barker replied: “Our campaign strategy is pretty straight forward - it’s to speak to as many people as we can.” He pointed out that Strahl has attended three all-candidates meetings during the campaign, toured the riding twice, meeting “thousands” of voters, and conducted a telephone townhall to answer public questions.

A cyclist checks out a van that flipped over on its side atop the Yale Road overpass just south of Alexander Avenue on Thursday afternoon. A witness claims the male driver of the van was travelling northbound and driving recklessly, swerving through traffic and passing on the right when it flipped over on the overpass. The van did not collide with any other vehicles and the driver was the only occupant who was later taken to hospital with unknown injuries. Traffic in both directions was closed for more than an hour. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Good news budget proposed for school district Katie Bartel The Progress After two years of hard-nosed budgets, Chilliwack school district was due for a good news budget, and all signs are pointing to just that. At Tuesday night’s board of education meeting, superintendent Corinne McCabe laid out the rough draft of the preliminary budget for the 2011-12 school year. And unlike last year, there are no layoffs, no tightening the purse strings, no shortfall, and no reconfiguring to make budget. Quite the opposite in fact. “We will not see the kinds of layoffs [with this budget] we saw in the last two

years,” said McCabe. Total revenue for next year is projected at $109.2 million, an increase of $1.8 million from last year. Of that, $1.5 million is the result of increased enrollment. Enrollment, which drives the majority of the district’s revenue through per pupil funding from the provincial government, is expected to be up by 251 full-time equivalent students, mostly in the kindergarten and primary grades. Total enrollment is projected at 13,334 students. Chilliwack school district is also expected to end the year with an accumulated surplus of $6 million; $2 million more than it started out with this year. Projected staffing has also increased across the board. Teachers are listed at 685.5, an increase

of 22.3 from last year; principals and vice principals are at 58.7, an increase of 3.0; executive and management staff are at 24.4, an increase of 0.7; education assistants are at 200.6, an increase of 3.7; and other support staff are at 255.6, an increase of 3.7. “The good news in this budget is that our staffing is being held constant or slightly increasing, which means stability for our staff and students,” said McCabe. “We’re trying to maintain consistent staffing levels.” The budget did not yet include the district’s projected expenditures. The final preliminary budget will be presented and voted on at the May 10 board of education meeting.

Voters across Canada are either eager to voice their political preference, or they’ve got other plans for the May 2 election day, according to preliminary advance poll numbers released Tuesday. More than two million voted in advance election polls, a 34.5 per cent increase over the 1.5 million who voted early in the 2008 federal election. But in the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding, the estimated advance poll numbers slipped a little to 3,808 compared to the 4,497 in October, 2008. Susan Friend, Elections Canada spokesperson in B.C., said the estimated voter turnout at the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon polling stations was “extremely heavy” on Friday and “slow but steady” on Saturday. Monday was the “heaviest day” of all, she said. Nationally, those two days were “the two busiest days of advance voting ever” as about 676,000 voters cast ballots on Friday and 823,000 on Monday. The total estimated turnout at advance polls in B.C. was 243,247. The preliminary figures are based on numbers reported by returning officers, and are not final until all the votes are counted on election day and the results validated. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Progress to publish Thursdays The Chilliwack Progress will publish Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning June 2, Progress publisher Liz Lynch announced this week. The move means Progress readers will receive their Friday paper a day earlier, giving them more time to plan weekend activities or take advantage of weekend specials, said Lynch. “Our Tuesday and Thursday editions will continue to carry a strong local news component, and the new Thursday edition will ensure you receive all the weekend advertising information you need one day earlier.” Lynch thanked readers and advertisers for their continued support, pointing out the Chilliwack Progress is celebrating its 120th year in the community.

News Mother’s day run helps moms and babies A device that helps nurses and physicians better monitor a baby while it’s still in the womb tops the shopping list in this year’s annual Envision Run For Mom. The run – held for the past 11 years on Mother’s Day – is a major fund raiser for Chilliwack General Hospital. It has helped CGH purchase more than a quarter-million dollars in hospital equipment – all of it aimed toward providing better care for women and babies in the hospital’s maternity department. This year run organizers have set their sights on a fetal monitor. Understanding the health of a baby prior to its birth has always been an important part of maternity care. Over time, the tools used to monitor that health have become increasingly precise. However, with that precision comes a higher price tag. The monitor eyed by Run For Mom organizers costs about $20,000 for the base model. It costs nearly $30,000 for the same monitor with more advanced features – features that allow greater mobility for mom, and more detailed information for caregivers. Currently CGH has only one of the more advanced models. Run participants can help CGH purchase one of these high-tech monitors by raising money as they prepare for the event. Registration forms and pledge forms are available at several locations throughout Chilliwack, including all Envision Financial branches and

Individuals who raise a minimum of $750 will have their names entered in a draw for a WestJet voucher for two. The Run For Mom has become a Mother’s Day tradition in Chilliwack. This year the event once again leaves from the parking lot of the new UFV Trades and Technology building at Tyson Road and Keith Wilson. Participants head west along Keith Wilson before turning on to the scenic Rotary Vedder Trail. There is a five-kilometre run,

as well as a chip-timed eight-kilometre run, and a one-kilometre race for the kids. There’s live entertainment, displays and food. And while strollers are welcome, participants are asked to leave their bikes and dogs at home. The race starts at 10 a.m., May 8, however it’s a good idea to get there early to register, especially if you haven’t picked up your race package early. The pledge collection deadline to qualify for incentive prizes is noon, May 6. For more information, see the Run For Mom website: www.runformomchilliwack.ca

Over the last 5 weeks, I have had the opportunity to speak with thousands of Chilliwack residents. I understand that many of you who voted Conservative in the past are still undecided. This is a big decision and I respect that. It is clear this election is different. It is different because of great concern over: • the Conservative nomination process • the absence of the Conservative candidate from most debates • the issue of experience and track record in Chilliwack I wish to address the undecided voters directly. On May 2nd, when you consider who would be the strongest person as your LOCAL Member of Parliament, please remember: You know me and what I stand for because I have worked hard for this great community for the last 9 years. Your vote for me is a vote for sound Ànancial management. As a City Councillor and School Trustee I had the privilege of managing over $100M of your taxpayer money annually and did so with balanced budgets. Your vote for me is a vote for someone who knows business and agriculture and has the experience to get things done. Your vote for me is a vote for families. I am committed to the health care and education that families need. Your vote for me is a vote for someone who is accessible. The job of the Member of Parliament is to represent you, to be your voice in Ottawa and to get things done. I would be pleased to answer any questions you have – no question is out of bounds. Please call me on my cell at 604-819-8217 or email me at team@dianejanzen.com I ask that on May 2nd you cast your vote for me, Diane Janzen, as your Member of Parliament for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon.

“He has debated the issues with his opponents, and he’s answered questions from the public by email, phone and mail,” Barker said. Asked if he felt Strahl was coming under unfair public scrutiny because of the view that he leads the pack of election candidates, Barker replied: “Mark has shown himself to be a capable candidate with a platform that meets any kind of scrutiny.” On Thursday, the Strahl campaign issued a news release announcing the candidate will attend a rally with Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the Abbotsford airport Sunday night. Strahl said in the release that Harper’s visit “shows that he doesn’t take traditional areas of Conservative strength for granted, and neither do we.” “We are working hard to earn every vote in every part of our riding,” he said.

R AESIDE

A royal diversion On Friday, an estimated two billion people around the world will be glued to their televisions at all hours of the day and night to watch the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. They’ll also be able to view the pomp and ceremony on an official royal YouTube channel, or a royal wedding app on their iPhone, or follow it on a live blog with integrated Twitter feed. There’s no escaping the hype. According to the technology firm Greenlight, the royal wedding is being mentioned 9,000 times a day online, or about once every 10 seconds. There are six times more people excited about the wedding than those that couldn’t care less. No detail is too minute or mundane for scrutiny, from speculation on Middleton’s dress and who’s designing it, to who’s on the guest list and who’s not, to the gifts, the appetizers, the menu, the carriage, the weather. The cynics, meanwhile, roll their eyes. They dismiss the royal family as irrelevant; they don’t make decisions, they don’t create policy. They scorn their lavish lifestyles of privilege as a needless burden on taxpayers struggling to pay the rent and buy groceries in recessionary times. They shake their heads at the expense and attention paid to a royal wedding as an affront when people are dying in wars, struggling to rebuild their lives after disasters, dealing with the daily challenges of disease, starvation and poverty. But it’s those very realities that pique our interest and curiosity about the royals, their wealth, their lifestyles, their foibles and follies. It’s human nature to seek escape from all the challenges of just getting through the day, whether it’s turning up the volume on a favourite song as we’re stuck in traffic, to popping into the coffee shop for a calorie-laden snack, to scanning the headlines on the gossip magazines as we stand in line at the grocery store checkout. For most, the royal wedding is no more than that, a diversion. So sit back and enjoy. The problems of the world return on Saturday. ~ Black Press

Now can we talk about the HST? VICTORIA – Even if movies based on video games aren’t your cup of tea, the recent Disney production Tron: Legacy is notable as a measure of the sophistication of the B.C. motion picture industry. A showcase of the latest computer-generated 3D effects, including a rendering of actor Jeff Bridges as he looked in the original version 30 years ago, Tron: Legacy was nominated for an Oscar and won several other awards for technical achievement. The sleek, lighted suits worn by characters were custom-made in the United States at a cost of $22 million, then brought to Vancouver for filming. Due to the vagaries of the old provincial sales tax, Disney had to pay about $1.5 million in PST because they were used here.

A friend in the business tells me this was more of a deterrent to movie production in B.C. than the current weakness of the U.S. dollar. It’s the kind of expensive insult added to the injur y of dealing with two different, complicated sales taxes, and it’s one of many unintendTom FLETCHER ed business problems fixed by harmonized sales tax. Despite B.C.’s reputation for movie wizardry, the next Tron might be made somewhere else if the HST is rejected. Regular readers will know I am an advocate of the HST, and the general trend away from income taxes and towards consumption taxes. But most people I talk to

aren’t interested in the economics, except as it relates to their own wallets. They don’t believe that taxes imposed on business will either be passed on to consumers, or avoided by changing locations. And they are bombarded with bogus arguments in this spring of election fever. Federal NDP leader Jack Layton is the worst offender. Like his B.C. counterparts, he has run to the front of the anti-HST parade. Unlike the B.C. NDP, Layton knows he will never have to implement his promises in government, so he offers to write off the $1.6 billion transition fund that B.C. has applied to its deficit. In effect, the rest of the provinces would subsidize B.C. for bringing back an archaic sales tax. That’s not even Layton’s dumbest idea. He’s been wandering

the country promising to remove GST from heating bills, a $700 million tax cut that would help the rich as much as the poor. Surely B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix would not approve of such a regressive tax shift. (Presumably Layton has been briefed by now that B.C.’s portion of the HST doesn’t apply to heating bills, so he won’t confuse us with Ontario any more.) Dix talks about HST falling on small business. There is an impact on ser vice businesses, notably restaurants, but ask a self-employed person or small business operator if they’d like to go back to administering two different sales taxes. Quarterly HST rebate cheques went out last week to more than a million B.C. residents at the lowest end of the income scale. Ask those people if they’d like to

lose that benefit, a real example of the kind of income equalizing measure that Dix calls his top priority. Ask a laid-off mill employee if he’d like to go back to work, and pay HST on movies and a dinner out. • Further to last week’s column about Dix’s plan to raise corporate tax rates, I now regret referring to his program as “Marxism Lite.” I fell for his strident rhetoric about taxing big corporations. His proposal amounts to raising the tax on corporate net income in excess of $500,000 by a modest two per cent.

HAVE YOU HEARD?

Thursday

Delayed senior knew what they were doing The author of the “No sympathy for delayed seniors” letter in the April 22 Chilliwack Progress needs to do a serious personal values check. In his letter he: • berates senior for acting like spoiled children • claims that they are on a fixed income (How would he know about their income?) • blames the 85-year-old for having a medical emergency • presumes that these seniors are ignorant of normal border crossing procedures • suggests ulterior motives for their complaint (ie. gambling losses) • suggests that if the bus had been heading south the 911 call would have been a fiasco • claims that the passengers could not have been told that they could be arrested as they claim no border guard spoke to them. All of these points indicate not

only that he has some serious value flaws, but that he is ignorant of the facts of the matter. Here are some of those facts: • These seniors travel to the United States – and across that same border – routinely and are fully aware of the normal border crossing process, filling out the required forms in advance and having the bus driver take them to the customs office – a process normally taking about 10 minutes. • They crossed this border at the same time they normally cross – not particularly ‘peak time’. There were no lineups in evidence at this time. • The 85-year-old in distress had a minor heart attack after the bus (and its air conditioning) had been turned off at the border guard’s insistence, and was subsequently hospitalized for six days. • I was the one who called 911 and have frequently dealt with people in medical distress in my

previous occupation. It was clear that his person needed medical assistance and I would have called 911 no matter which direction the bus was headed. • It was the bus driver who told the passengers that the border guard had advised that they could be arrested. • None of the seniors lost their ‘life savings’ or had any ulterior motive for being upset, other than the treatment they received at the crossing. I trust the writer of that egregious letter takes a moment to reflect on the distress caused to this group of seniors – not just by the crossing but by this letter. We all understand that border guards have an important job to do that I’m sure can be stressful at times. That does not excuse them for performing their duties in a professional manner that is respectful of the citizens that employ them.

Research should have been done sooner on airport This is in response to Mayor Gaetz’s comments in the “special report” on page 3 of the Chilliwack Progress, dated April 19. My advice to the mayor is that research is necessary on all subject matter before commenting so that the facts come out correctly. The City of Chilliwack obviously has had no long term plan for the Chilliwack Airport. In 1997, the city leased the

airport out for an unprecedented 50-year period. It was only six years later in 2003 that the city decided to have 15 acres excluded from the Agricultural Land Reserve exclusively for aviation. The Porters did not request to have this land removed from the ALR. If the city would have had a study done prior to submitting this application to the Agricultural Land Commission, it

may have discovered that accessing an airport in Canada from private property usually doesn’t happen and the problem is multiplied many times here because of the airport being leased to a management firm. The Porters have never suggested returning this property to the ALR as the mayor suggested. This comment has been uttered and written to the Porters on many occa-

sions by the city department heads and in particular by the mayor in the last few months. The City of Chilliwack would have been smarter spending tax dollars researching airport related matters back in 1997 and 2003 instead of trying to correct bad decisions by hiring lawyers to navigate “uncharted” territory in 2011. Herbert H. Porter

B.C. Liberals make the rich richer And this is not the case today in many other advanced industrialized countries, where government has taken steps to protect working and middle class families. The harmful effects on inequality are well documented. As a number of respected researchers have pointed out, health and social problems tend to be much worse in wealthy societies with high levels of inequality. Community life and social relations are typically weaker, mental illness and drug addiction more common, physical health poorer and life expectancy lower, obesity widespread, educational performance lagging, teenage births more frequent, violent crime a common occurrence, rates of imprisonment and punishment much higher, and social mobility far more difficult. What makes Fletcher’s argument surprising is that he was

very supportive of “state-imposed wealth redistribution” under the Gordon Campbell government, when it implemented the HST, did away with the corporation capital tax on banks and financial institutions, lowered corporate income taxes, and raised MSP premiums and long-term care fees. The big difference is that the Campbell government was effectively redistributing wealth from B.C.’s working and middle classes to the wealthiest and most privileged families, which is apparently good policy in Fletcher’s book. If what Adrian Dix is calling for is “quaint” then I’m all for the quaint. And I can tell you many other working and middle classes families struggling to make ends meet feel the same.

Re: Clash of visions in political spring (B.C. Views, April 22). Tom Fletcher claims B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix “is diametrically opposed to the global consensus” on the economy. He seems particularly annoyed that Dix is calling for higher taxes on corporations and banks, and dismisses his position on inequality, telling us that the “rhetoric about state-imposed wealth redistribution seems not so much alarming as quaint.” I don’t see what is “quaint” about Dix’s proposals. Inequality in Canada has now reached levels not seen since the Wall Street crash of 1929, with the gap between the wealthy and the rest of us continuing to widen. The gap has gotten so bad that the richest 10 per cent of B.C. families now earn more than the bottom 50 per cent combined. This was not the case 30 years ago.

BIA reps build bridges in Chilliwack Jennifer Feinberg The Progress BIA reps, city officials, planners and community builders from across the province are convening in Chilliwack this weekend for the annual Business Improvement Areas of B.C. conference. The conference is April 28-30 at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel

with speakers delving into everything from business recruitment, sustainability and retention, the scourge of empty storefronts, to the proliferation of street gangs, and other social and safety issues. The keynote speaker Thursday was the Skid Row CEO Joe Roberts. On Friday speakers will include Dr. Roselyn Kunin who will give a talk titled Building Bridges, Building Business, and

Dr. Farid Novin, an economist with the Bank of Canada. Tourism Chilliwack officials coordinated an ‘Amazing Race’ Chilliwack edition for conference participants yesterday afternoon, which was followed by a late evening reception at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. The conference welcome was delivered by BIABC president Patricia Barnes and Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz.

More details on proposed sale coming BINGO from Front The conditions of the proposed sale of all CBA assets to Great Canadian Gaming are slated to be presented, considered, and voted upon at a May 7 meeting of the Bingo Association membership. Chilliwack Bingo manager Fran Heagy said she couldn’t disclose any of the agreement details because of confidentiality and nondisclosure agreements, but she did confirm that Chilliwack Bingo had received an offer from Great Canadian Gaming.

She clarified that the five-acre property on Olds Drive had not been put up for sale. “We’re in the middle of doing our due diligence,” she said. “The members’ vote on the agreement is only one part of that process.” Great Canadian Gaming spokesman Howard Blank said the community of Chilliwack clearly has a “desire” for bingo and other amenities, given the stellar gaming revenues from Chilliwack Bingo, which totaled $11 million in 2009-10. “We thought it would be a great fit,” he said.

With the CGC idea already green-lighted by council, they could potentially offer slots, off-track betting, and a range of other gaming and entertainment options in the growing market of Chilliwack, he said. “Chilliwack had the number one spot in terms of revenue in the province in 2010, which beat Vancouver by over a million dollars,” said the vice president of media, entertainment.

ment despite the fact the sales deal is not yet done. “We’re a public company and as such we must announce these deals in a timely manner,” Blank said. The company runs 10 casinos, four racetracks, and two CGCs. More details on the potential Chilliwack acquisition is expected by May 12, when the company announces first quarter results for 2011. “That’s when we should be able to announce the closing and the terms of the agreement publicly,” he added. Coun. Pat Clark remembered the night she voted in favour of a new CGC for Chilliwack. “Going through that process, and learning how much the bingo revenue meant to the charities, I really hope they will continue to have that revenue if this sale progresses.”

Response to Intervention (RTI) was introduced at Tuesday night’s board of education meeting as a strategy that could help young students who struggle academically succeed in school.

ANSWER: Botox Cosmetic® is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein and works by relaxing the muscles that cause the dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. Regular use of this simple treatment will soften expression lines and prevents the further deepening of lines. Botox® is a safe FDA approved treatment. A tiny amount of Botox® is injected precisely into the muscle that is being treated. A very fine needle is used so that the pain associated with the injection is minimal. It is a very quick simple procedure with no downtime. You can expect results within a few days and the effect usually lasts from 3-6 months.

district has consistently struggled with students entering school at risk of failure. According to the 2008 Early Development Instrument, 35 per cent of Chilliwack students entering kindergarten were vulnerable. Of that, 61 per cent were at risk in the downtown core; 58 per cent in the Rosedale and east Chilliwack areas; 52 per cent in Vedder; and 48 per cent in the Cottonwood area. Testing for learning disabilities generally doesn’t start until Grade 2. And while many of the students coming into the district do have learning disabilities, many are just delayed in their learning. RTI is a system that attempts to fast-track learning for those particular students. The three-tiered system includes small-group interventions for students at risk, individualized interventions for students who don’t respond to the group interventions, and long-term programming for Continued: SCHOOLS/ p11

students who continue to struggle. “The goal is to give students sufficient supports so they can catch up with their peers, which means these students are going to have to work faster, we’re accelerating their learning,” said Wiebe. If a student doesn’t improve with any of the interventions, a referral would be made to test for learning disabilities. “With this, the culture of our schools becomes a problem-solving culture,” said Wiebe. While the district is still in the early planning stages, its intent is to have RTI in schools district wide by next school year.

The Chilliwack Progress Friday, April 29, 2011

Five reasons to sign up for a running event a fitness chalAs lenge for clients and friends, I put together a team for the Vancouver Sun Run. After a steady training program and a few group training runs, we set out early on race day to tackle 10 kilometer route. By taking part in the Tanja Sun SHAW Run, and listening to others share their experience of the event (both training for and racing), I was quickly reminded why we take part in running events. 1. Motivation to stick to your training program. Sticking to a regular running schedule has its challenges- but trying to stick with the running when you have no goal to work toward is tough. Following a training plan for a running event gives purpose to each run you do on your own.

Having a purpose and a plan is that extra motivation you may need to get out and complete the workout. 2. You are working toward a good cause. Most running events are fundraisers for a good cause. Not only will your legs and lungs benefit from racing, but so will the community. 3. Pushing yourself a little harder. Running legend Grete Waitz said “There is something about the ritual of the race- putting on the number, lining up, being timed- that brings out the best in us.� She is right. As soon as the gun goes off, you know you are not going for a your regular morning run; you are competing. You might not be challenging anyone around you, but you are challenging yourself. 4. Sense of accomplishment. There is no feeling quite like crossing the finish line after training for and completing a running event. It’s exhilarating. There

race, or an adventure race, or up the distance and tackle a half marathon. If you are a regular runner and want to test your limits, or a casual exerciser who wants to see what a running or walking event it all about, next week’s Run for Mom is your chance. On Sunday, May 8th the Envision Run for Mom takes place in Chilliwack. This event features an 8k road race, 5k fun run/walk and a 1k kids’ run. This event is a Mother’s Day celebration and fundraising

event in Chilliwack. Funds raised for the event will go to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation to purchase priority equipment for programs benefiting women and children at Chilliwack General Hospital.

Motivation to train for the next race. Running events can be addictive. Once you participate in one event, it is very possible you will be looking for the next event to train for.

(playing in the adjacent main-stage tent), the combatants grapple for 30 dirty minutes before security folks intervene. Later, during a set by Sunset Rubdown, I spy one of the cleaned up (but obviously not sobered up) wrestlers dancing on the plywood floor in front of the stage. When the set finishes, at 2 a.m., I walk with locals and tourists, young tree-planters and middle-aged bikers, urban hipsters and wannabe rockers into the stilldusk-like night. This far north (64 degrees) the sun barely sinks below the horizon in July. Such are the delights that await music lovers who fly to Whitehorse, drive six hours north to Dawson City and buy a weekend pass to one of Canada’s most perfect, tiny music festivals. Dawson City, where the Klondike Gold Rush began in 1897 and where 1,800 hardy souls now live, has staged this three-day festival since

1976. Held in July, it brings together mostly Canadian acts performing all sorts of musical styles, from folk, blues and klezmer to hip-hop, indie rock, classical and country. The music venues are just as varied, and all within walking distance along the town’s wooden sidewalks and dirt roads. The Palace Grand Theatre, opened in 1899, hosts evening performances (I check out the Acorn and Chad Van Gaalen on Friday night) as well as afternoon workshops in which musicians from various groups share the stage. The First Nations Dänojà Zho Cultural Centre and St. Paul’s Anglican Church, built in 1902, also stage workshops. In the church on Sunday I sit in a pew to listen to a Spanish-flavoured set, then head to the bank of the Yukon River and the outdoor stage to hear Iskwew, a First Nations trio.

For years, the NDP has been the STRONGEST alternative in Chilliwack. Polls now show the NDP is the only party that can challenge Harper in BC.

The Palace Grand Theatre, built in 1899 during the Klondike Gold Rush, is one of the venues for the Dawson City Music Festival. The small, perfect event is held in July, when night never really comes to this high-arctic town. ANN BRITTON CAMPBELL/MERIDIAN WRITERS’ GROUP

Dawson City Music Festival DAWSON from p14 In the main-event tent in Minto Park (site of the beer garden) a steady stream of bands grace the stage. Mother Mother, Bend Sinister, Gadji Gadjo—I don’t recognize all the names, but I relish the opportunity to sample their music. Since this is my first trip north I take breaks from the music to cruise the Yukon River aboard the Klondike Spirit paddlewheeler and to pan for gold at Claim 33, near Bonanza Creek where the nuggets that launched the gold rush were found. I also attend Parks Canada’s Robert Service program, an engaging, 60-minute history lesson held

CHILLIWACK

in front of the cabin where the 19thcentury Klondike poet lived. Actor Johnny Nunan is halfway through reciting “The Cremation of Sam McGee” when the sounds of yet another band kicking it into gear come drifting up from the main stage, about half a kilometre away. When the music festival’s on in Dawson, its presence is impossible to ignore. But who’d want to? Explore More

News Fishery violators get away without paying fines Jeff Nagel Black Press A huge number of fines issued for illegal fishing have gone unpaid, raising serious questions

about the federal fisheries department’s ability to deter poaching. More than $1 million in fines are currently unpaid in B.C., officials from the Department of

Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) disclosed in recent testimony before the Cohen Commission into the decline of Fraser River sockeye salmon. Since most fines are

KEEP OUR ECONOMY ON TRACK CRACK DOWN ON CRIME KEEP TAXES LOW

Thank you

less than $5,000, the total unpaid reflects hundreds and perhaps thousands of individuals who have refused to pay, confirmed Randy Nelson, DFO’s assistant director of conservation and protection. Nor is there any mechanism with any teeth to enforce payment. “We don’t have a system to collect and follow up,” Nelson said under questioning before the inquiry April 8. “It is of concern to officers.” Paul Steele, DFO’s national director-general for conservation and protection, told the inquiry the problem gets discussed “from time to time” but the department has been reluctant to spend the money required to pursue unpaid fines. He also said DFO has trouble getting other government agencies to collect fines on its behalf and fishery officers may also lack the legal powers to execute warrants themselves to enforce payment.

INQUIRY from p16 Steele admitted under questioning from lawyer Don Rosenbloom the situation threatens to undermine DFO enforcement efforts. “If it’s widely known that a person could potentially get off without paying a fine, then that could have an effect on compliance and the deterrence level, yes,” he said.

The more than $1 million in unpaid fines is a cumulative total that’s built up over the years and includes all outstanding fines for Fisheries Act violations – illegal fishing by sports anglers, First Nations and commercial fishermen as well as habitat violations.

News Crey, another regular observer at the sockeye inquiry, who pointed to impending budget cuts at the department. “They’re about to lose $57 million over the next two years. And they need to find ways of collecting this money if they hope to enjoy credibility on the fishing grounds. So you have a double incentive to go collect these fines.”

Progress

Mother’s Day with Patsy Cline Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Walk right in and sit right down. Imagine it’s half a century ago. You’re one of the lucky ones with a ticket in hand to see country legend Patsy Cline sing her heart out. Bonnie Kilroe of Celebrity Imposters has been around the world with suitcases full of costumes and wigs, doing her version of superstar acts like Patsy Cline, Cher, Barbra Streisand and even Lady Gaga. Now she’s coming to Chilliwack on Sunday, May 8 to perform two show at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, with an act she calls simply “Mother’s Day with Patsy Cline.” “I was always a mimic,” she tells The Progress. It started at the family kitchen table doing comedic impressions of relatives. Then it grew into dinner theatre, celebrity telegrams, cruise shows, lounge singing and a burgeoning career doing superstar impersonations. Kilroe always adds some humour, and subtitles herself as “the farce to be reckoned with.” “Growing up all over the Lower Mainland, from Richmond and Delta, to Surrey and Cloverdale, I first remember being drawn to the limelight as a pre-teen. “My cousin Danny and I wore out multiple Patsy Cline cassette tapes during our frequent dramatic sing-alongs.” But of all the artists she does, Patsy Cline holds a special place in her heart. She’ll be pulling out all the stops for her best solo impersonation of the one and only Patsy Cline, who died in a plane crash in 1963. It began in 1990 when Kilroe tried out for the lead in an Arts Club production of A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline. “I started becoming interested in Patsy before the play even came out, and I was basically a Patsy Cline nut.” She was very green, and beyond excited, dashing out to rent a wig for the occasion. At the audition she sang an obscure Patsy song or two that nobody recognized. She didn’t get the role. But it turned out to be a major turning point for her career anyway. “All these weird things fell into place.” It all started coming together and the Patsy Cline impersonation is the only one she does for an entire one-woman performance. “My show grew out of being tired of waiting for the phone to ring when I was in film and television,” she said. “It was a wonderful

discovery for me as it is truly an expression of who I am.” With Kilroe’s natural comic timing, striking looks and versatile vocals, it was natural for her to want to create a musical stage show with some comicc edge. “I love to bring comedy to ot my show and they may not ver expect it, but I will also deliver mothe beautiful, vulnerable emotion of Patsy’s music.” The performer who lives in East o relate to Vancouver says she can also the singer’s down-to-earth personality, even in the face of adversity.. man.” “She was a very jovial woman.” eyed soprano voice Cline’s haunting and honeyed orm Loretta Lynn has influenced everyone form an Adams and k.d. and Linda Ronstadt, to Bryan lang. The “one and only” title was actually ny Cash. bestowed on Cline by Johnny ch,” Kilroe says “I love her music so much,” about the rich tones of the singer’s voice. ion as a singer, “Patsy was my first inspiration and no other music called to me until I ter, in my midheard Judy Garland, then later, .” 20s, it was Barbra Streisand.” pearances as She’s been making appearances ent weeks in Cline around town in recent full costume to promote the May 8 show, anywhere from the Plant A Row/Grow a ghan Park, to Row launch at Gwynne Vaughan the Martini Mingle at Earls this week. nection to She has a strong connection ming into Chilliwack these days, coming ters, aunt town often to visit her sisters, and uncle who all live here. “It’s the reason I chose to do my show there.” ver heard of So even if you have never songs like I Fall To Pieces, Walkin’ After Midnight or Crazy you will walk away a fan of both performers. atsy Cline Check out Kilroe as Patsy yousendit. on Youtube at http://www.yousendit.

Folktale comes to life Rumpelstiltskin is being brought to life for two shows, Sunday, May 1 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s main theatre. In this hilarious and refreshing adaptation of Rumpelstiltskin, audience members are invited on stage to play some of the main parts. The resulting excitement and spontaneity creates an uproarious experience for all and forms a perfect introduction to traditional fairytales, folktales and the classics. Suitable for children from kindergarten to Grade 6, the story begins when the town miller lies outright to the king and in stating that his daughter can spin straw into gold. To her surprise and despair, the miller’s daughter is then held captive in the castle turret until she makes good on her father’s promise. Thankfully, the little strange man, Rumpelstiltskin, appears and magically spins the straw into gold, saving the miller’s daughter. Presented by the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society, the ‘Nearly World-Famous’ DuffleBag Theatre has become one of the most celebrated theatre companies at festivals and schools across the country. Their talented and quirky actors take on the retelling of original adaptations of select fairy tales and Shakespearean classics, while inserting wit and humour. Everyone’s dream of living a fairytale can come true May 1 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Miles for Smiles

Take your art down on the farm Art on the Farm is looking for artists. The annual event is a free community event in August held on a sprawling farm in the Columbia Valley with a focus on the arts. This year they are lining up an improv troupe and a claymation film tour but are still seeking more visual artists to be represented. No idea is too creative.

Artists are positioned to sell their craft in the apple orchard, through the hazelnut grove, and around the farm. Artists featured at Art on the Farm are typically pottery, glass beads, hand made children’s clothes, quilts, knitting, pastels, paintings, jewellery, papier maché, tree branch chandeliers, tie-dye workshops, woodworking, handmade soap, and more.

Early bird registration is $25 before April 30, or $40 after May 1. Musician spots are filling up fast, say organizers but they still need artists and food vendors. For details go to info@artonthefarm.com. To rent a booth make cheques payable to Art on the Farm and send to: Art on the Farm, 1423 King Albert Ave., Coquitlam, BC V3J 1Y3.

Carol Tichelman: Commitment to community service Carol Tichelman was blessed with wonderful parents. As young people, they had their share of tragedy and heartache but the sum total of their experiences allowed Ana them MACEDO to grow into kind, courageous, determined, successful people. These were the attributes that they passed on to their children, something that Carol is thankful for. Her mother knew tragedy well. After enduring a series of trials, she resolved that what she needed was to get away from it all, at least for a time. She decided, along with her best friend, to head to England for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and following that magical moment, they would remain in Europe for a year, travelling and discovering the beauty that it had to offer. Then, as with any good fairy tale, one week before heading back to Canada, she met her prince one block from the Eiffel Tower in Paris. “Dad was a squadron commander in the Royal Dutch Air Force. They wrote to each other for a year, then she went back and they were married. They had agreed to raise their children in Canada but as it turned out, mom got pregnant right away and dad couldn’t leave at that moment because he hadn’t finished his commission with the air force,” she explained. He made the decision to go AWOL

(absent without leave). Her father was pardoned for having gone AWOL due to his circumstances and the couple left for Canada. At that same time, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) was looking for fighter pilots. “He couldn’t be a fighter pilot without being a captain but he couldn’t be a captain without being a Canadian citizen so the military expedited his citizenship application and he became a member of the force.” Carol enjoyed her

childhood immensely. She was a good student and thoroughly enjoyed school. She was involved in the debating club and did a lot of volunteering including Candy Striping at St. Paul’s Hospital. “I had my eyes set on becoming a clinical pharmacist. I did go to UBC but three years into it, they changed the role of a pharmacist where they could only dispense medication. They weren’t allowed to provide advice and that was what really interested me. That’s changed now

but it’s too late for me,” she laughed. She decided to take a year off from school and, left to discover Europe. Eight months later, she returned and had every intention of going back to school but then a sorority sister got her a job at the Kerrisdale branch of Canada Trust. Six months later, she was elevated to the position of assistant manager and remained with the company for the next 15 years. “The company had a really cool culture and still does. I held

a variety of jobs with them including travelling all through Western Canada for two years doing internal audits,” she said. Like her parents, Carol has always enjoyed the adventure and challenge of trying new things. So, when

the company offered her the position of branch manager in Prince George, she accepted. This was just after the merge between TD and Canada Trust and BC’s second largest branch was having some merging pains. Carol was the right woman for the job.

She enjoyed her time in Prince George. She made many friends and became heavily involved in what she describes as a fun and vibrant community. Through her positions with Canada Trust, she had become a good Continued: ANA/ p30

Neighbours ANA from p27 friend of the late Warren Reid who was the branch manager in Chilliwack at that time. One day, the two were at a conference and got into a discussion about what they enjoyed most about their job. They both agreed that it was financial planning and resolved to leave Canada Trust to start their own business. The day that Carol made that decision, her mom and dad were both diagnosed with cancer. “They lived on the coast and I had to be nearer to them so that I was better able to help them. My decision was really a blessing in disguise,” she admitted. Her parents eventually succumbed to the disease but Carol treasures the time that she devoted to them. Aside from enjoying a variety of pastimes and volunteer responsibilities, Carol is passionate about her 18-year involvement in Rotary. She was President of the Chilliwack Rotary Club in 2005-2006 and is currently Assistant Governor for District 50/50, amongst many other commitments. In October 2009, she travelled to Ethiopia and Uganda to take part in National Polio Immunization Day which is part of a Rotary initiative to eradicate polio worldwide. “My father was a victim of post polio syndrome so this was near and dear to my heart,” she said. She went back last year and says that Ethiopia stole her heart but Uganda reached her soul. She is looking to return once again, recognizing that she was called by God to do this work.

With the success of the first year, they opened the horticulture club up to students in Grades 7, 8 and 9. [See story on Highroad Academy’s horticulture club in Monday’s edition of The Progress.] “Science is way bet-

ter when it’s hands-on, when our students can see the colour changes, and the seeds germinating and precipitate forming,” said Munro. The school’s science students have also grown plants for Minter Gardens and vegetables for in-the-classroom. The science department has long-term hopes of creating a forest garden on campus with increased shrubs and trees.

If Highroad wins the competition, the money will go towards building an on-site greenhouse. “We’re tr ying to make science happen in an exciting way,” said Munro. “We’re not using the excuse that we don’t have it as a reason to not do science – we’re taking advantage of what we do have.” As regional winners, Highroad Academy will receive donated science lab equipment, a $3,000 grant to purchase additional science lab tools and resources, a $300 gift certificate to the NSTA Bookstore, a school-wide membership to the NSTA and the NSTA Learning Centre, and paid registration for two teachers to attend a NSTA conference. “This is all for science. It’s about getting our kids excited, involved, engaged in science,” said Munro.

King couple wages war with cancer Eric J. Welsh, Black Press A Vancouver sporting icon is coming to Chilliwack June 4 to support a local man in his fight against cancer. Vancouver Canucks legend Richard Brodeur will be at the Cultus Lake Golf Course for the first annual Dark Horse Riders Charity Golf Tournament. Money raised by the event will benefit the Ride to Conquer Cancer and the B.C. Cancer Foundation. The Dark Horse Riders are a team of four men. Paul King leads them, joined by Blair Peake, Paul Ackah-Sanzah and Scott Birstins. In June they will tackle the 240 kilometre bike ride to Seattle. In August of 2006, King was diagnosed with lung cancer — exceptionally poor timing with his wife (Meagan) eight and a half months pregnant. “I thought it was a chest infection and my GP thought it might be gallstones,” King said of the pain in his side that set off the initial warning bells. “He (Abbotsford’s Dr. Alan Moore) sent me in for an ultrasound. Two weeks later he called me back and said they’d found a spot. They did a biopsy and it was cancerous.” King was sent to a cardiothoracic surgeon who wanted to do a lobectomy, removing the top third of one lung to extricate the cancer. But before doing that, they did a mediastinoscopy, going in for a closer look. The look wasn’t good. “The lymph nodes didn’t look quite right, so they biopsied them while he was on the operating table,” Meagan explained. “And they found that the cancer had already spread into the lymph nodes. It was too late for the lobectomy.” They sewed Paul back up, leaving a sizeable scar around his collarbone, and the discussion turned to radiation and chemotherapy. Meagan had labour induced and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Victoria. Five days later, Paul started his treatment. Six rounds of chemo. Thirty-three rounds of radiation. Five extremely difficult months. “When Victoria was little I was thinking, ‘Am I going to die? And if I’m going to pass away in two

years do I really want her to get to know me?’” Paul said. “But she has been a blessing and I’m telling you one thing. Having that little baby in my arms it was like I wasn’t even sick. She gave me something to focus on.” The treatment worked and Paul got out of the woods for a year, but in May 2008 the cancer came back with a vengeance. Paul went back on a new and improved type of chemotherapy, but he had something else to deal with. “I had a pleural effusion, which meant the lining between the lung and chest wall (pleural cavity) filled with cancerous fluid,” Paul said with a grimace. “By the time

I went in for surgery, they had to drain four litres off my lungs. Then they put an external PleurX catheter in, so I had a tube sticking out of my chest.” At the time, Paul was one of just 11 people in Canada with the catheter, a new treatment designed to boost the otherwise poor odds for those stricken with a pleural effusion. “I had to learn how to work in sterile fields so I could drain it and change it,” Meagan said. “That was tough, but we got through it. Normally, the survival rate for people with a pleaurel effusion isn’t good.” At first, Meagan tried to be the stoic rock, taking care of every-

thing and trying to contain her anger over a situation that seemed so unfair. “You turn things off because you have to, and I rode the wave of anger for a really long time,” she admitted. “The financial thoughts have been huge. Cancer’s an expensive disease and you go through your savings and nest egg pretty quick. And if Paul dies, it’s all on me.” Stress, stress and more stress. And as all this was going on, more tragedy struck the King family when Meagan’s uncle, Brian Cannon was diagnosed with an aggressive form of lung cancer. He was completely symptom free until he collapsed and had a seizure in the Merritt A&W. It had already spread to his brain and other organs. He went on chemo, but his was a battle destined to be lost. He succumbed in May of 2009 and one of Paul’s primary motivations for doing the Ride to Conquer Cancer is to keep Brian’s memory alive. “Lung cancer affects a lot of people and it’s one of the number one killers, but it’s not talked about as much as some of the other cancers,” Paul said. “Brian smoked for a long time and that’s probably what caused his cancer, but what’s shocked me going for treatment is how many people my age or younger are there.” Paul has never smoked, but his parents did. Exposure to second-hand smoke is one possible cause of lung cancer. Several of Paul’s jobs have involved working with and around chemicals. Another possibility. “When I was young (three or four years old) I got pneumonia, and I was left with a lot of scar tissue on my lung,” Paul said, offering another theory. “The tumour grew right in that area, so that could be it. Or it could just be bad luck. I could beat myself to death trying to figure out why.” There’s no cure for Paul’s form of cancer, only maintenance. He gets X-rays every three months, and a CT scan every six months. Tests count the number of cancer cells per unit of blood. Normal is five. Right now, Paul is in the 20s. At his worst, he was up to 1700. “By the time cancer sneaks up on you and you start experiencing symptoms, it’s usually too

late,” Paul said. “That’s why it’s so important to get checked out on a regular basis.” Paul and Meagan are quick to credit the often-maligned healthcare system for helping them get this far. “Everyone talks about how horrible the system is, but these people have gotten me into surgery within weeks and onto chemotherapy within days,” Paul said. “I don’t know if I got a particularly good team, but I’ve been really impressed by how good they have been.” In just five years he has also been impressed by the advances in cancer therapy. The difference between the first and second rounds of chemotherapy was astounding. “The first time, I wondered if the chemo was worse than the disease,” Paul said. “The second time, I was able to keep working and I kept my hair. Going to the different agencies, more PET scans and CT scans, it’s all come a long way and seeing people getting involved in things like the Ride to Conquer Cancer gives me hope that they will someday find a cure.” Until that day, Paul keeps himself busy planning the golf tournament, which is a great deal more work than he expected. With help from his teammates, friends, family and generous corporate sponsors (loadonthego. com, Direct Cedar Supplies Ltd., Scotiabank, Save-On-Foods and others), King and company hope to raise upwards of $30,000. The Cannon family has stepped up with a sizeable donation in memory of Brian, and support continues to build. “It’s a struggle mentally to figure out whether you’re going to let this disease control you or whether you’re going to control it,” Paul said. “With the tournament and the Ride to Conquer Cancer, it’s like I’m reborn in a way. It’s a passion and it gives me a purpose.” Of course, this story wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the biggest sponsor of all. Four-yearold Victoria will be at the Cultus Lake Golf Course on June 4, selling lemonade to help her daddy.

DRINKING WATER WEEK MAY1-7

Here in B.C. we often take our tap water for granted, but it is a finite resource that we should value

at a glance

and protect.

Q 25% of Canadians have no idea where the water that flows out of their taps comes from. Q Canadians use an average of 329 litres of water per day - twice the amount used by Europeans. However, the average Canadian thinks they use only 79 litres per day. Q Canadians admit to knowingly engaging in water wasting activities such as leaving the tap running while washing dishes (44%) and hosing down their driveways (19%). Q Canadians are more concerned with saving electricity than water: 29% of Canadians don’t know what they pay for their water, but only 10% don’t know what they pay for their electricity bill.

We need to value our drinking water industry and agriculture, and the effects of climate change all place enormous pressure on our water supply.” Drinking Water Week, May 1st - 7th, is dedicated to creating awareness of the value of our water, our water systems, and the people who make it accessible and safe for us to drink. Many communities throughout B.C. are holding events to celebrate Drinking Water Week, including hosting tours of their local reservoirs and treatment plants, and we encourage you to take the time to visit them. Check your local newspaper to find out about events in your community, or visit www.drinkingwaterweek. org for activities and educational resources provided by the BC Water & Waste Association.

Q Install low-flow shower heads Q Wash your car with a bucket instead of a hose Q Install low-flow toilets that use less water

True and False: Test your water knowledge by trying our quiz. 1. British Columbians use less water each day compared to other Canadians. 2. Most indoor water use occurs in the bathroom. 3. It does not matter what we put down our drains, as all of our wastewater gets treated in B.C.

T__ F__ T__ F__ T__ F__

Q Use rain barrels Q Avoid watering your lawn in the summer

ANSWERS: 1; F. British Columbia residents use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the national average of 329 litres. 2; T. We use 65% of our water in the bathroom, 20% for laundry, 10% for drinking and kitchen needs, and 5% for cleaning. 3; F. While it is true that most wastewater in B.C. is treated before it is returned to its source, we should be careful not to put harmful substances down our drains or in our gardens. These substances can harm fish and other aquatic creatures (check with your municipality to find out how to properly dispose of harsh chemicals).

When you turn on your tap and clean, safe water comes out,do you ever stop to think: how does it get there? Who brings it you? Where does it end up when you’re finished with it? BC Water & Waste Association and the Province of British Columbia have officially proclaimed Drinking Water Week May 1st to 7th, 2011. We invite you to celebrate this exciting week by “getting to know your H2O” – including where it comes from, where it goes, and how you can protect and conserve it. Here in B.C., where we have an abundance of natural resources, we often take our tap water for granted. However, there is no such thing as ‘new water’ – the water that we use continually cycles through the environment, and is reused again and again. British Columbians personally use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the Canadian average of 329 litres per day. That is about double what Europeans use! Although it may not be apparent to all of us, the costs and energy required to deliver water to our taps, treat it to be safe and clean, and safeguard the environment by managing wastewater, add up to billions of dollars every year in Canada. Daisy Foster, CEO of the 4,400-member BC Water & Waste Association notes, “Increases in our population, the growth of

The Chilliwack Progress Friday, April 29, 2011

Five reasons to sign up for a running event a fitness chalAs lenge for clients and friends, I put together a team for the Vancouver Sun Run. After a steady training program and a few group training runs, we set out early on race day to tackle 10 kilometer route. By taking part in the Tanja Sun SHAW Run, and listening to others share their experience of the event (both training for and racing), I was quickly reminded why we take part in running events. 1. Motivation to stick to your training program. Sticking to a regular running schedule has its challenges- but trying to stick with the running when you have no goal to work toward is tough. Following a training plan for a running event gives purpose to each run you do on your own.

Having a purpose and a plan is that extra motivation you may need to get out and complete the workout. 2. You are working toward a good cause. Most running events are fundraisers for a good cause. Not only will your legs and lungs benefit from racing, but so will the community. 3. Pushing yourself a little harder. Running legend Grete Waitz said “There is something about the ritual of the race- putting on the number, lining up, being timed- that brings out the best in us.� She is right. As soon as the gun goes off, you know you are not going for a your regular morning run; you are competing. You might not be challenging anyone around you, but you are challenging yourself. 4. Sense of accomplishment. There is no feeling quite like crossing the finish line after training for and completing a running event. It’s exhilarating. There

race, or an adventure race, or up the distance and tackle a half marathon. If you are a regular runner and want to test your limits, or a casual exerciser who wants to see what a running or walking event it all about, next week’s Run for Mom is your chance. On Sunday, May 8th the Envision Run for Mom takes place in Chilliwack. This event features an 8k road race, 5k fun run/walk and a 1k kids’ run. This event is a Mother’s Day celebration and fundraising

event in Chilliwack. Funds raised for the event will go to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation to purchase priority equipment for programs benefiting women and children at Chilliwack General Hospital. Tanja Shaw is a Kinesiologist and personal trainer, specializing in weight loss, group fitness, pre and postnatal fitness, and health and wellness programs.

are crowds of excited, energized people, people cheering you on, and a large digital clock to validate your effort. The euphoria, that “I did it!� feeling, can last for weeks. 5. Motivation to train for the next race. Running events can be addictive. Once you participate in one event, it is very possible you will be looking for the next event to train for. When you look around for an event, you will realize there are many to choose from. Perhaps you’ll want to try a trail
