Contact centre more than housing $3M coming from province Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Currently Vedder middle has 652 students with a capacity for 600 plus portable space, while Mt. Slesse has 501 students and a capacity for 650. Next year, its enrollment is expected to drop to 472 students. But with Yarrow, it would increase to 509 students. Principal Dan Heisler said Mt. Slesse is a perfect fit for Yarrow students, as it’s the only middle school in Chilliwack that incorporates a pod system where the student population is divided into three smaller communities, making it easier for Grade 7 students, especially those coming from smaller elementary schools like Yarrow, to transition into middle school.

The provincial government is chipping in $3 million to help establish the Chilliwack Health Contact Centre. BC Housing officials recently signed purchase documents with the owner of the property at Young Road and Hocking Avenue, a former Days Inn motel. Contingent upon rezoning approval, the facility will offer an array of housing and health services at Young and Hocking to tackle homelessness, and those at risk of becoming homeless. Residents will commit to live a “substance-free” lifestyle in a supervised environment at the contact centre, and sign a Good Neighbour agreement, according to the operational plan from the Pacific Community Resources Society, one of the proposed operating partners. “It will make a real difference in people’s lives and improve our community,” said Chilliwack MLA John Les. It’s more than just affordable housing, an area in which the province has invested almost $600,000, he underlined, it’s a full range of health and social services they hope to offer under one roof. Chilliwack Hope MLA Barry Penner said they were delighted to be able to respond to the request for assistance from the committee of proponents, who have been putting the business and operational plan together for several years. “We’ll be watching closely as this develops,” he said. The residential facility with on-site health services will contain 24 supported housing units, also called “transitional” housing for adults with mental health issues or addictions. Another 10 spaces will be in a group setting.

Mt. Slesse principal Dan Heisler speaks during Tuesday night's meeting at Yarrow elementary. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Parents voice boundary concerns Katie Bartel The Progress Enrollment is down at Mt. Slesse middle school simply because there are not enough students in the catchment area, said school officials, not because it’s a bad school. Some parents, however, aren’t convinced. An information meeting was held Tuesday evening at Yarrow elementary to discuss the district’s proposal to change school boundaries for middle school students living in Yarrow. Instead of going to Vedder middle, they would go to Mt. Slesse middle.

Approximately 40 parents were in attendance, many of whom questioned Mt. Slesse’s academic performance, culture, programs, and availability of sports. Parent Ingrid Schoolkate expressed concern over rumours of Mt. Slesse being a school known for drugs and bullying. Parent Jolene Dejager was concerned the recent decreases in enrollment were due to poor academic performance. Superintendent Corinne McCabe said neither were true. It wasn’t too long ago that Mt. Slesse was “bursting at the seams,” said McCabe. Student growth was expected to continue with the develop-

ments of Garrison Crossing and Webster’s Landing, which resulted in G.W. Graham middle secondary school being built to accommodate the growth pressures. “The reason enrollment is down is not because students don’t want to go to Slesse or because the school has poor results,” said McCabe. “It’s because we built G.W. Graham anticipating further growth in this area, and that development has been slower to come to fruition.” The boundary change is meant to balance the populations at both Vedder middle and Mt. Slesse, and to ensure Mt. Slesse stays viable, said McCabe.

Public safety put at risk by metal thieves 911 service cut by theft of copper wiring Robert Freeman The Progress Wire theft is putting Fraser Valley residents’ safety at risk, especially those living with little or no cellphone service in remote areas of the region. Telephone land lines have been cut by copper wire thieves leaving “thousands” without service, and even electric highway safety signs have been put out of commission,

leaving drivers at risk, police said. Some residents in the Yale and Boston Bar area were stranded “for weeks” without telephone service after an ice storm and a landslide delayed repairs to damaged land lines. “We have no cellphone service, which makes it really troublesome when land lines aren’t repaired,” Lloyd Foreman, Boston Bar area director at the Fraser Valley Regional District, said after last month’s board meeting.

Foreman and Yale area director Dennis Adamson called on the FVRD board to send a “stronglyworded” letter to Telus about the service delay. But Telus spokesman Shawn Hall said repair crews couldn’t reach land lines damaged by the ice storm because the landslide closed access roads, and then the metal thieves hit, taking copper wiring the company had paid “hundreds of thousands of dollars” to bury underground. And last Monday, metal thieves hit Telus again, breaking into an

armored conduit under the Hope Bridge, shutting down about 250 voice and Internet customers, as well as a cellphone tower, he said. All for about 10 feet of copper wire, worth about five bucks to scrap metal dealers. Hall said Telus is “happy to talk with the regional district” about solving the problem, and is actively working with the RCMP to put metal thieves out of business. “They’re putting our customers at risk, leaving them without 911 service,” he said. The RCMP is asking the public

■ W ONDERLAND

to report any suspicious activity around power poles and other locations with copper wiring. Most of the thefts have taken place in the daytime, in heavilypopulated areas, so police believe there must be witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to call the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611. Tips can also be called in to Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS or made online at www.chilliwackcrimestoppers.ca. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Treaty vote flawed, says B.C. Treaty Commission Robert Freeman The Progress

Sex assault reported on Young Road Police are looking for a young man who allegedly exposed himself and sexually assaulted a woman walking on Young Road near Cheam Avenue Wednesday night. “The 21-year-old female victim was allegedly followed and touched in a sexual manner,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

But the victim was able to get away and call police from a nearby residence. The suspect is described as a white male about 20 years old with a stocky build and standing about five feet tall. He has short blond hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt with a white design on the front,

baggy blue jeans and running shoes. The victim told police she was walking north on Young Road at about 7:45 p.m. when she noticed the young man following her. “He commented on her body, continued to follow her, and (then) exposed himself to her,” Hollingsworth said.

Given the location of the incident, police believe there may be witnesses and are asking anyone with information - or who have been victims themselves - to call the Chilliwack RCMP detachment at 604792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Tips can also be made online at www.chilliwackcrimestoppers.ca

A final treaty agreement is tantalizingly close for the In-SHUCK-ch First Nation, the first to formally join the B.C. treaty process back in 1993. But one of the three bands that make up the nation in the Lillooet Valley north of Harrison Lake pulled out of treaty talks last January after holding a referendum the B.C. Treaty Commission now says was flawed. “The results of the (referendum) did not determine the will of a majority of Douglas First Nation members, as only 38 per cent participated in the vote,” treaty commissioner Dave Haggard said in a Jan. 12 letter to Douglas Chief Don Harris. Haggard said the DFN must now decide whether to hold another referendum and ask its members if they want to return to the treaty table. Or abide by last year’s Jan. 30 vote and remain outside the process - in which case the nation would still be liable for its share of the In-SHUCK-ch treaty debt. Gerard Peters, In-SHUCK-ch chief negotiator, said all the concerns that led to the DFN leadership pulling out of the treaty talks have now been addressed in the draft agreement. But neither he nor the commission have been able to meet formally with the DFN leadership to discuss the changes, which include requirements for majority votes by each band before the treaty is ratified, and measures to protect each band’s post-treaty governance and economic arrangements. Chief Harris could not be reached for comment this week, but in an earlier interview he told The Progress the nation’s concerns involved being “outnumbered” by the two larger bands in future votes, and protection of the nation’s business interests. He said an “overwhelming” number of band members - 55 - had voted to pull out of treaty talks while only 12 voted to continue negotiations.

Black Press A man who was allegedly in a vehicle involved in a police pursuit in Chilliwack in May 2009 has been charged in connection to another pursuit in Langley on Friday, Feb. 4. Michael Jacob Milligan, 30, has been remanded in custody and is next due to appear in Surrey provincial court on Feb. 17 for a bail hearing. He has been charged with dangerous driving, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and possession of a controlled substance. On Feb. 4, at about 2:20 p.m., a black Mercedes caught the attention of a Langley RCMP officer as it made a high-speed turn from 32 Avenue and headed north on 272 Street in Aldergrove. The vehicle had no front licence plate. The officer caught up to the vehicle, and a

check of the rear licence plate showed the car was stolen. The Mercedes then travelled west on Highway 1 and exited at 232 Street, where the officer lost sight of it. Mercedes Benz Canada called Langley RCMP to advise that they were tracking a black Mercedes on GPS as it drove through Langley. The vehicle had been stolen Jan. 30 from a residence in north Langley. The Air 1 police helicopter was in the area and observed the vehicle being driven erratically, including abrupt U-turns, unexpected lane changes across three lanes of traffic, and hitting speeds up to 150 km/h. At one point, the vehicle narrowly missed another car, forcing the motorist into the oncoming lane. The Mercedes then entered the Willowbrook Mall parking lot, where two occu-

pants exited the car and ran into the mall. The driver was seen removing some of his clothing. He then purchased and wore a new shirt. Lower Mainland Police Dog Services found the driver in the mall and arrested him. They retrieved his discarded clothing from the garbage. Police were unable to locate the passenger. Police found the suspect in possession of small bag of a substance believed to be methamphetamine. Milligan has an extensive record, according to the provincial court database. He is due to appear on June 14 in Chilliwack provincial court on two counts of possession of stolen property, relating to a police chase through Chilliwack in May 2009. He is alleged to have been in a stolen GMC Yukon before a woman, Cassandra Rowell, allegedly rammed police

Michael Jacob Milligan,

vehicles and attempted to flee. She was shot by police and was sent to hospital, where she recovered. Rowell was charged with several offences, but died in custody early last year from an undetermined cause.

Another man involved in the incident, Tyler Cavan Suel, pleaded guilty in June and was sentenced to five years in jail for dangerous driving, flight from police and driving while disqualified.

But the commission questioned how many DFN members were aware of the referendum - and thus may have missed the vote - and what the actual voting results were

as the commission received “estimates only” without any official reports from an electoral officer. “On the face of the information we do have, the results do not meet the minimal threshold of a final and binding referendum,” Haggard said.

$1000 OFF* A PAIR OF DIGITAL HEARING AIDS! Firefighters were on scene at a fully involved house fire in Popkum on Monday afternoon where crews from Chilliwack also attended. The fire was at a house directly across the street from the Popkum fire hall. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Cause of Popkum house fire still unknown The cause of a fire that ravaged a single-family home in Popkum Monday is still unknown. The fire apparently started in the garage of the home on Popkum Road and was “fully involved” when firefighters from Popkum and Agassiz arrived at about 2:30 p.m. The flames were rapidly spreading to the rest of the home, but firefighters were able to knock them down

and save about 50 per cent of the structure. The house was unoccupied at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire is still “undetermined,” a fire official at the Fraser Valley Regional District said Thursday. Agassiz RCMP officials could not be reached for an update on their investigation.

Contact centre expected to offer a range of services Some might confuse this unique centre with agencies who offer emergency shelter for street people. “Keep in mind this will not be a homeless shelter,” said Lee Anne Hanson, addiction services manager for PCRS. “It’s a residential supported housing program that will operate in collaboration with Fraser Health.” If a homeless person walks in looking for a bed, they’ll be offered all the health care and referrals that were previously unavailable to them, but for emergency overnight accom-

modations, they will be referred to the local Salvation Army shelter or Ruth and Naomi’s. Many services will be available under one roof, from some form of medical care to possible court advocacy and rental assistance programs. Subject condition removal on the sale of the Young Road property is expected on March 31, with a closing date of May 3. Denis Turco Architect Inc. of Vancouver is designing the proposed 2,500 square-foot addition and alterations. If the rezoning receives approval by city council for intro-

duction and first reading on Feb. 15, a public hearing will be scheduled for March 1 to consider the rezoning from tourist commercial to a one-of-a-kind zoning designation, R9, for a Supportive Housing and Health Contact Centre Zone. “Our $3-million provincial contribution will cover the property purchase and renovations to the existing building,” said Penner. “Now that a property has been found, we can move on to the next steps of getting these housing and health care services in place for people in need.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com

Nietzsche the cat coping with fame Katie Bartel The Progress Nietzsche is handling his celebrity well. So well in fact, the famed bookstore cat is now embarking on a promotional tour. After being named top bookstore cat last year by AbeBooks.com, one of the largest, independent, online marketplaces for new, used, rare and out-of-print books, Nietzsche’s star status has skyrocketed. In partnership with The Book Man (Nietzsche’s agent) Nietzsche released 50 limited edition bookmarks – all “pawtographed” by the cat himself – to celebrate the honour. In just three days the bookmarks sold out and raised $250 for Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven, the place where Nietzsche’s talents were first discovered. Three months later, people are still clamouring for a Nietzsche sighting, hounding him for pawtographs, begging for more bookmarks, and some even come with cameras ready to paparazzi the feline at a moment’s notice. And Nietzsche, being the level-headed, lovable star that he is, gives his fans what his fans want. Under The Book Man’s direction, Nietzsche will be releasing a 12-month calendar with images of him plastered throughout.

But because Nietzsche is such a busy cat, what with interviews and photo shoots and store-front appearances, he can’t possibly do it all on his own. So, he’s making a deal with loyal fans. Anyone interesting in submitting art of Nietzsche for the calendar can make an appointment with The Book Man to hang out with Nietzsche while creating the artwork. Any medium is permitted, including paintings, drawings, photographs, quilt work, weaving, rug hooking, sculptures, etc. as long as it’s in the likeness of Nietzsche. Only 12 pieces will be selected, but Nietzsche’s agents are already thinking big. “I’m thinking crazy,” said Amber Short, manager of The Book Man. “If we get enough, maybe we’ll get gallery space and do a Nietzsche show.” The calendar will be released in January 2012 with proceeds going to Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven. Anyone interested in participating can contact The Book Man at 604-792-4595. So what’s next for Nietzsche? Sources have told the Progress that the peaches and cream coloured feline has got his eyes set on beating out George Clooney’s cat for this year’s Sexiest Cat Alive contest. Stay tuned.

Garrison Crossing is in the running for the Great Places in Canada contest, launched by the Canadian Institute of Planners to find the best streets, places and neighbourhoods in the country. Garrison Crossing, the award-winning planned neighbourhood on the former CFB Chilliwack, was nominated by Garrison resident Darlene Goetz. She bought her home “sight unseen” in Garrison, because she very much wanted to be a part of history, and she absolutely loves it. “It is a beautiful combination of heritage and new,” she wrote. “The Village is a retail shopping complex in the middle of it all. Soon we will have a pool, water park, playgrounds. Surrounding it all are plaques commemorating the people who lived and worked here protecting our country. “It definitely is worthy of being called the Greatest Place in Canada.”

Garrison Crossing has been nominated in the Great Places in Canada contest by the Canadian Institute of Planners. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

The nomination of Garrison Crossing was both “professionally rewarding and of course flattering,” said Randy Fasan, director of planning and land development for Canada Lands Company, who considers the multi-phased subdivision his “life’s work.” Fasan is also a parttime resident in the Garrison neighbourhood, who gets to enjoy a few days a week commute-free from his custom-designed carriage house.

“Garrison is a feelgood place,” he said. “And that is precisely what we set out to do, create the most livable and enjoyable community we could build.” “It all looks shiny and new like a penny, but there are also these mature trees everywhere,” Fasan said. The lanes located behind the homes means there is no “parade of garages” out front. Another location in Chilliwack was also nominated in the

Great Places contest, Salish Park, near the Chilliwack library. Nominations and voting in the contest will close March 25. A panel of judges will then select finalists in late April, and winners will be announced in May. Each winning location will receive a plaque, presented to the local mayor, and winning nominators will also be awarded.

Parents play key role in the 21st century learning equation School district plans forums on how parents get get better involved Katie Bartel The Progress After more than 50 years the face of K-12 education is drastically changing. The days of a regimented classroom with the teacher standing at the front lecturing students who are uniformly lined up at their desks are coming to an end. School districts across the province are now looking at how to incorporate the new 21st century learning format into their schools. Twenty first century learning is personalized learning that tailors education to each student’s specific needs, interests and aptitudes. On Feb. 24, Chilliwack school district will be conducting three budget forum sessions where school officials will be seeking input from administrators, teachers, staff, students, parents, and others in the community on how best to employ that in Chilliwack. The focus of the forum is identifying priorities for student suc-

cess. “This forum is about an opportunity to voice how we can help Chilliwack students graduate,” said Kirsten Brandreth, president of the District Parents Advisory Council, which is hosting the third session. “Parents really need to educate themselves ... knowledge is power especially when it comes to our kids education and all of the options out there.” The current system focuses heavily on core courses and foundational skills including reading, writing, numeracy and literacy, and is predominantly teacher driven. And while 21st century learning will continue to incorporate those same skills, it will also add new ones that include thinking, inquiry, problem-solving, innovation, cross-cultural understanding, technology literacy, self-reliance and environmental literacy. It’s going to give students more choices, more flexibility, and in turn will hopefully engage them more. “It comes down to engaging

our learners,” said Brandreth. “If our kids are passionate about something, they’re going to be more successful.” And parents are a key to the equation. With 21st century learning, courses will no longer be just teacher-driven. Students, parents and teachers will work together to obtain student success. “Parents are going to have a say in their child’s education,” said Brandreth. “That’s huge. It’s not just about letting teachers and principals dictate what our kids learn anymore. We all need a voice, we all need a say in things that are going to work for our kids. “We have to put ourselves out there. We have to spread the word, because the more parents know, the more benefit it’s going to be for our kids.” The forums are on Feb. 24 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at Chilliwack middle school, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Kekinow targeting the aboriginal community, and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Mt. Slesse middle school targeting parents and others in the community. For more information visit the school district website at www. sd33.bc.ca.

Breaking the cycle

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

The provincial government has made good its promise to assist in the creation of a supportive housing project that will help break the cycle of drug dependency for those seeking help. (See story, front page.) Now it’s up to city council. An application to rezone a property at Young Road and Hocking will come before city council next week. It’s expected the application will be sent to public hearing – the next step in the approval process. Undoubtably there will be concern. These kinds of projects often draw suspicion, especially from those who might live or work in the vicinity. But it is a project that is overdue, and is essential if Chilliwack hopes to address the issue of chronic drug use in the city and the criminal activity it perpetuates. The concept behind the “Contact Centre” is not new, and the Mayor and city councillors are well acquainted with its philosophy. Fundamental to the care model advocated by the Pacific Community Resources Society is that those seeking help truly want to shake loose the shackles of their drug addiction. What the Contact Centre will do is provide them with the tools necessary in assisting them to remain drug free. This is important. One of the biggest challenges drug-dependent people have in extricating themselves from their lifestyle is having a dependable support structure in place that prevents them from sliding back into that lifestyle. Too often people who decide to leave the drug life find themselves living in its midst only because there are no longer-term alternatives. That’s bad news for the individuals, but its also bad news for the community as a whole. Chronic drug use is one of the biggest sources of crime we know. Every addict who stays clean and manages to reintegrate into society is one less person likely to break into homes, turn to prostitution, or rob convenience stores to pay for his or her habit. The province is obviously convinced. It’s investing $3 million in the project. What’s needed now is for council to provide the proper rezoning. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

Dangerous driving carries too stiff a price Is it just me, or have Metro Vancouver drivers become even more insanely aggressive in recent years? Judging from the results of a recent newspaper poll, apparently so, as three-quarters of poll respondents believe the majority of drivers in this province drive dangerously. As a commuter, I’ve certainly seen it all. There are the multi-taskers: • The dog/baby/spouse on the driver’s lap. • Cellphone in crook of neck, left hand on steering wheel, right hand on shifter... and a bowl of soup on the dashboard. • Eyeliner and mascara application at red light. • Open book splayed across speedometer. The hoarders treat their vehicle like a home away from home: • A clutch of Kleenex boxes

blocks the view out the rear window while an assortment of stuffed animals creates blind spots in front. • A mini landfill of fast food wrappers, coffee cups and other trash form ecologically questionable mounds in the slope between the dashboard and windshield. Paula • Wait, is that CARLSON a live cat in there too? But by far the worst are the aggressive drivers — the bob-and-weave lane-changers, the tailgaters, the cut-off artists, the chance-taking passers and the Neanderthals who flash their high beams in brazen selfrighteousness. Where the frick is the fire?

There’s a great line in the movie The Shawshank Redemption, when long-time convict Brooks Hatlen is released from jail after more than 40 years behind bars. As he ambles down a city street, Hatlen is overwhelmed by the change of pace that has occurred over the decades; horns blast as he is nearly run over by racing traffic. “The world went and got itself in a big damn hurry,” Hatlen observes. I’ll say. Neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night prompts today’s motorists to ease off on the gas pedal, not to mention tough new provincial legislation that can see them lose their wheels for a week and get slammed with hefty fines if they’re cruising 40 km/h above the posted speed limit. At best, all these street sins would be baffling — at worst,

frustratingly annoying — if not for the tragic consequences of such selfish behaviour. For an example of just how bad it can get, there’s the story of grieving widow Brenda Michie, who lost her “soulmate” Jim Neiss in a fatal collision in Langley last month. Neiss, a bus driver employed by the Langley school district, was hit head-on after a dump truck hauling a “pup” trailer crossed over a double yellow line to pass a small white car in the 19800-block of 16 Avenue. Eyewitnesses have told investigators the truck was weaving in and out of traffic in an aggressive manner before impact. A visibly angry RCMP officer was blunt in his assessment of the crash: “This person [Neiss] had absolutely no chance,” said Supt. Norm Gaumont, who is responsible for traffic services in Metro Vancouver. “This person

was minding his business on his side of the road.” Police say the 62-year-old dump truck driver will likely be facing criminal charges. But for Brenda Michie, there will be no redemption. Before his death, she was planning to celebrate her 20th anniversary with Neiss on Feb. 2 and his 60th birthday on Feb. 7. Instead, she had to plan his memorial. Overcome with sorrow, she still expects to see her “Jimmy” when she arrives home at the end of the day. “He was the love of my life,” she said through the tears. Remember those words the next time you’re tempted to punch it past the slowpokes in front of you. They want to see their loved ones again, too.

WE ARE The Chilliwack

Progress

Residents must fight gravel plan Vedder Mountain/gravel pit, this is definitely not what we want as taxpayers. It’s what all levels of governments want and this includes the developer. We, as taxpayers, had better wake up to what is happening to our city, and give a strong message to our local government that we do not want this destruction and ugliness to take place on Vedder Mountain. What Mr. Kirkness wants to do to Vedder Mountain is disgusting and will be ugly and visible. I live in Websters Landing,

which is in Sardis, and I already see this mountain being stripped; I see it from the freeway and other areas of this city as well. Yes, I wonder how many of our good citizens will stand up and be counted against this being given approval. Where does our local government stand on this? We sure are not hearing anything from our elected officials. They are being awfully quiet despite articles and letters to the editor about this destruction (let’s call it what it is). This doesn’t just affect

Yarrow; it will have an impact on all of us. We, as taxpayers and residents, need to get a very strong message across to our local government that if they approve what this developer is trying to convince them – that this will be concealed – then they are burying their head in the sand like an ostrich, and they are doing a great injustice to all who live in this beautiful setting.

How refreshing to read about the “Made in Chilliwack” Spero homes, (Katie Bartel, Chilliwack Progress, February 1), being built under the direction of Jack Robertson, executive director of Spero. What a fine contribution by Teen Challenge, Yarrow [more Chilliwack] in the assembly and preparation for shipping these materials to Haiti of these 100 durable homes.

Also most refreshing to read about the generosity of the donor of “his aluminum and glass railing systems business, the society had its mission.” And more unusual even this generous person wished to remain anonymous. In reading this I was reminded of Blaise Pascal’s, Pens’ees, abridged and edited by James M Houston, “Mind on Fire”, quoting Pascal, “Noble deeds are most valuable when

they are kept secret. And the best thing about them is the attempt to keep them secret.” Pascal,1623-1662, was not only a brilliant physicist but also a major theologian of his day. As such Pascal was aware also of what Jesus taught about giving to the needy, Matthew chapter 6:1-4. I would guess that the kind donor of the aluminum and glass railings for the Spero homes must also have known about what

Jesus taught about not trumpeting one’s generosity. Further I also suspect that the energy of the Teen Challenge assemblers was likewise inspired by this example of generosity to also make their valuable contribution in the assembly and packing. Can you imagine the joy of the Haitian families for their new, durable homes. They will surely also give much glory to God!

Drug dealer sorry for his actions For many months I lived a lifestyle that is completely out of character for me. I was a drug trafficker, preying on the weak and addicted for nothing more than financial gain, to support myself and my young son. I have dishonoured my family and friends, and feel guilt and shame to this very day for my actions. I acted stereotypically as someone who didn’t think they were doing harm to the community, with an attitude that, “If I’m not selling drugs, someone else will be.” Looking back at it now, I realize that my actions were completely wrong, and someone with my intelligence should never have done such a thing. I took the easy route to try and further myself financially

and it ended up costing me the better part of four years of my life. I am now going through house arrest, which although can sometimes be lonely, is better than sitting in jail, unable to see my son and contribute to his overall development. I hope that he never learns of my treacherous behaviour because I would never want a lifestyle like that for him or any other child for that matter. Once again, Chilliwack, I am very sorry for contributing to our quiet town’s criminal world. I will, however, use this experience to better myself and give back to Chilliwack, through work programs, even lecturing high school kids about the negative side of drug dealing. Being born and raised in Chilliwack, I

can’t fathom the impact I might have had on so many lives, and how ashamed I am that I would inflict this on a place I’ve called home for my entire life. I plan on raising my family here and will no longer stand for the tyranny of drug dealers and criminals in our community. For the town that has given me so much, Chilliwack, I’m sorry to all your citizens and I pray one day I too will make amends with myself for acting as a parasite, fueling the addictions of so many of your citizens. I will hold these thoughts close to my heart until the end of my days. Please forgive me. Andrew J. Morrison

pass. Party officials are also purging the membership list of new members signed up in contravention to the rules. Random audits of new members are underway to try to eliminate memberships issued without the person’s knowledge. Under particular scrutiny are cases where multiple memberships came from the same address, particularly a business, or bearing the same phone number. “Our party executive and staff take the integrity of our leadership vote process extremely seriously,� Patryluk said. “We are committed to a fair and equitable process for all leadership contenders.� Among those memberships being deleted are those of several Kamloops Blazers hockey players who were signed up without their knowledge by a supporter of Kevin Falcon’s. Falcon’s campaign manager said he notified party headquarters as soon as he learned of the

invalid memberships. Tom Gaglardi, majority owner of the Western Hockey League club, is a supporter of Falcon’s leadership bid, and the Blazers’ general manager took responsibility for what he called a “communication error� leading to the inappropriate sign-up. That came after the Falcon team accused Clark forces of using large numbers of photocopied membership forms missing the required serial numbers, contrary to party rules that said only official membership books were to be used. Clark’s representatives dismissed the claim. Before that, it was the case of a cat belonging to the Delta South riding association president, a senior Clark organizer, ending up on the membership list. George Abbott then had to order a supporter to take down a satirical website called kitties4christy.com that attempted to exploit the cat incident.

B.C. Liberal party officials say nearly 50,000 new members were signed up by the Feb. 4 deadline for eligibility to help pick the province’s next premier. “This dramatic increase in new members has pushed our membership mark so it’s now approaching 90,000,� party president Mickey Patryluk said Tuesday. “It’s a clear signal of the enthusiasm that has been ignited by this leadership race.� Exactly how many new members were signed up by each campaign remains unclear. Kevin Falcon’s backers say they’ve signed up 17,500 and the Mike de Jong campaign is claiming more than 10,000. Christy Clark is expected to have the most new members, with reported estimates ranging from 20,000 to 26,000. However those numbers don’t square with any significant

number of new members from the George Abbott campaign, or from Moira Stilwell and Ed Mayne. Nor has an official detailed breakdown been released of where the members have been recruited. Many are believed to have signed up in Surrey, where three campaigns were concentrating heavily on the South Asian community. Still up in the air are the rules that will govern the Feb. 26 vote to select a new Liberal leader and premier. Party delegates vote this Saturday on a recommended plan to give equal weight to each district across the province, rather than the one-memberone-vote system. That would greatly water down the influence of thousands of members signed up in a handful of urban ridings, prompting speculation some forces in the party may seek to defeat the proposed voting reform, which needs a two-thirds majority to

VOTE from Front Several parents, however, were concerned with the timing of the decision, and requested the district hold off for another year. But because Mt. Slesse’s enrollment is expected to continue declining, teachers would likely be moved out of the school, and specialty courses inevitably dropped. “It’s a change and none of us like change, we understand that,� said McCabe. “But if we don’t prepare now, we’re going to get jammed up.� Parent Marvin Klassen believed the reasoning for the proposal to be solely financial. “It was a sales pitch, a really great presentation,� he said following the two-and-a-half-hour meeting. “But in reality, it’s simply a financial issue. What is the benefit for my kids?� However, while Dejager came into the meeting with a long list of concerns, she left satisfied. “After seeing how many teachers came out and listening to them talk about how their school is set up, I have switched my way of thinking,� said Dejager. “I believe my concerns were valid, but they answered them well. They eased my mind.� The proposed boundary change will be voted on at the Feb. 22 board of education meeting. If approved, it would be effective September 2011. kbartel@theprogress.com

News

Senior target of common scam Kurt Langmann Black Press An attempted identity theft of a 96-year-old Bradner woman was intercepted by her son before she saw the letter. Their names are being withheld to protect them from other criminal activity, but the son wants locals to know that this crime appears to involve local persons. The letter is a familiar scam, in which a purported

banker from overseas offers the letter’s recipient cash rewards if they would assist in transferring millions of dollars out of another country into Canada. The letter solicits the recipient’s full names, address, phone and fax numbers, occupation and age. Most people are aware that providing this information can be sufficient for criminals to assume a victim’s identity but the criminals tend to prey on the vulnerable, such as

elderly persons. That, along with the fact that the letter appears to be hand-delivered to their rural mailbox, makes the son suspect that his mother was targetted by someone locally, who may have been aware of her advanced age. The son notes that the Tanzanian stamp on the letter, which had his mother’s correct name and address on it, was not postmarked either in Tanzania or Canada. Authorities estimate that

there is a new victim of identity theft every three seconds somewhere on the planet. Much of it transpires over the internet but there is still plenty of it taking place via “snail mail” and the telephone. The public is advised to be ver y careful about sharing any of their personal information with anyone, and to advise police of any unsolicited queries about personal information.

Dan Ferguson Was Davey Butorac as bad as notorious serial killer Willie Pickton? Crown prosecutor Chris McPherson argued on Thursday the only real difference between the 32-yearold Langley resident and Canada’s most prolific serial killer is that Butorac was convicted of killing two vulnerable women, whereas Pickton was convicted of six.

Butorac should get the same sentence, McPherson said, the maximum possible of life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. Butorac’s defence lawyer Richard Fowler pressed for a slightly shorter period of 20 to 22 years before his client would be eligible for supervised release from prison. Butorac was convicted last year of second degree murder for inflicting a brutal bludgeoning before strangling to death 46-year-old Gwendolyn Jo Lawton in March of 2007 in Abbotsford. Her body was later found in the remote Pemberton Hill area of Abbotsford. He was also convicted at the same trial of second degree murder in the July 2007 beating death of 50-yearold Sheryl Lynn Koroll in Langley. Her body was found near a concrete plant just outside Langley City. Butorac is still facing

trial on a third murder charge. He is accused in the murder of Margaret Redford, 47, of Aldergrove. Her body was found in Bertrand Creek in Aldergrove on May 20, 2006. At the time, Butorac was living with his father in a townhouse complex a short distance away. The families of both Lawton and Koroll filed impact statements with the court at the Thursday sentencing hearing in New Westminster. Lawton’s mother, Irene Reitz, was the only one to read hers aloud in court. “You’ve taken away the love of my life,� she told Butorac, her back turned to the convicted killer as she addressed Justice Elizabeth Arnold-Bailey. She still says good night to her daughter every evening, Reitz added, saying the murder of Gwendolyn “tore a hole in my heart and life� Like the Pickton victims, both women were

vulnerable sex trade workers forced onto the street by drug problems, the prosecutor said. They were physically small women, barely over 100 lbs. each. There was nothing in Butorac’s background, no abuse or drug issues that might explain the degree of rage and violence he displayed in killing the two women, McPherson added. “Like Pickton, this man is a killer of multiple women,� McPherson said. “We don’t know why. But this much is clear, in the Crown’s submission. He is extremely dangerous.� Defence lawyer Fowler said it was “perhaps misguided� to rank Butorac with Pickton. Fowler said handing out a maximum sentence on two counts of second degree murder would amount to “watering down� the use of the highest penalty to denounce more serious crimes such as the Pickton case.

Sandra Froese: Setting down roots Sandra Froese looks back on her childhood with fond memories. She was raised in Lynden, Washington, a community that was quite rural during her growing up years. “I would pick berAna ries in the sumMACEDO mer and since my friends lived on a dairy farm, I would spend my time haying as well,” she recalled. After graduation, Sandra went to work as a dispatcher for Evergreen Northwest Breeders, an insemination service for dairy cattle. She enjoyed the position and was sorry to leave but when summer was over it was time to start classes at Western Washington University. “I enjoyed school and my favourite subject was English; so much so that I chose to pursue a career in education,” she said. Then, one fateful day, Sandra decided to go skating. This decision forever changed her life for on that day, she was destined to meet Vic Froese, the man that she would eventually marry. “All the Chilliwack guys used to go skating in Lynden back then,” she laughed. They began dating shortly thereafter and two years later they married, interrupting Sandra’s university

education. Their marriage was not without a little controversy for Sandra was strongly advised against the prospect of marrying a foreigner. “I had one person encouraging me to marry him but everyone else was against the idea. For them, it was a fear that I would loose the protection of my American citizenship. I went ahead and did it anyway and today Vic and I are still happily together and I enjoy having my Canadian citizenship,” she said with a gentle smile. After their wedding, the couple settled in Chilliwack where Vic was a teacher at Yarrow Elementary. They began their family and Sandra resolved to stay at home with the children, although she eventually went back to university.

The couple ended up leaving Chilliwack so that Vic could take on a position as master teacher at Simon Fraser University. After a time, he left and went back to Western Washington University to obtain his masters degree. He then landed a teaching job with the University of Manitoba and the Froese family remained in Winnipeg for the next sixteen years. It was during this time that Sandra went on to receive a certificate in Early Childhood Education from the University of Manitoba and for six years worked for the Morning out for Mothers, a pre-school program in Winnipeg. After sixteen years, opportunity called yet again and the family left Manitoba’s largest city and headed back to the west coast. For the

next thirteen years, Vic worked at UBC before deciding to retire. After retirement, the couple returned to Chilliwack but after having been away for about thirty years, the community had grown and changed. “When we returned, some friends were still living here but many had moved away. It was quite the adjustment. We had friends and a certain routine in Vancouver and all of that was gone now. You feel a bit lost, with no real purpose,” she admitted. Realizing that Sandra needed to get reacquainted with her new community, her sisterin-law invited her to join Probus. Probus is a social club of retired professional and business people.

Speedy skater flying to Finland Eric J. Welsh, The Progress Alec Janssens dreams of travelling the world. It is the main reason he studies international commerce at the University of Calgary. One day he dreams of doing business in Venice and France — of executive meetings in Tokyo and Hong Kong. But until a future degree gets him where he want to go, it is left to his legs to carry him overseas. First stop, Finland. The 19-year-old Chilliwack native happens to be a pretty good speed-skater, good enough to compete on behalf of his country at the upcoming International Skating Union’s Junior World Cup, taking place Feb. 25-27 in Seinäjoki. Janssens punched his ticket to Finland in Winnipeg, turning in an impressive performance at the 2011 Canadian Junior Championship. Over four days on the frigid Susan Auch out-

door oval (Jan. 27-30), Janssens recorded a win in the men’s 3000 metre race, finishing second in the 1500m and third in the 5000m. “I’ve only lost one 3000m race all year long, so I was expected to win it,” Janssens said proudly. “That race was delayed about three and a half hours, and it was actually dark out when we did it. It was cool racing under the lights, and I won by a couple seconds.” In the 1500m, he missed top spot by the narrowest of margins, his time of 2:01.11 a fraction of a second behind Quebec’s Laurent Dubreuil (2:01.03). “When it’s a tenth of a second, you just look at the clock and say, ‘That’s doable. I can fix that next time,’” Janssens explained. “It’s just a slight mental error, a foot going down the wrong way or messing up a corner entry. It’s really not all that much, and you don’t get discouraged by it.” In the 5000m, Janssens’s time of

7:41.52 placed him close behind Ontario’s Conner McConver y (first at 7:39.12) and Philippe Bergeron (second at 7:40.87). Put it all together and Janssens finished second all round, taking one of the five available spots (three all-round and two sprinter) on the Canadian team that will head to Finland. All the more remarkable, he did all this in unfamiliar conditions as one of the few skaters not accustomed to competing on an outdoor oval. It’s a totally different feel and you have to adjust to that quickly,” he noted. After Winnipeg, Janssens hopped down to Milwaukee for a Regional ISU World Cup event. In Wisconsin, he won the 1500 and 3000m races, finishing fourth in the 500m. Janssens, still a member of the local Sardis Fliers Speedskating Club, switched from short-track to long-track two years ago when it

became apparent his lanky six-foot-six frame was more suited to long strides and endurance racing. “Growing up, everyone told me I’d end up being a long-tracker, but I was in denial about that for a long time,” he laughed. “Short track is something else, so exhilarating. Long-track is an acquired taste, but I like the mental challenge, competing against myself and the clock. With my size I had to switch over, and I’m very proud of how far I’ve gotten in a short time.” And now, he stands at the edge of greatness, hoping the best is yet to come. “The only expectations are those that I put on myself,” he said. “Heading to Finland, a lot of the European skaters are really strong in the long distances, which are my specialty. If I can place top eight in any distance, that guarantees a spot on the national team next year, so hopefully I can pull that off.”

Flowers to warm the heart at Valentines Valentine’s WEEKEND SPECIAL “Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy”, says Dr. Haviland-Jones, “and now science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well being.” Here are five main points as condensed from her report: Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. Study participants expressed true or excited smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups. Flowers have a longterm positive effect on moods. Study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction. Flowers make intimate connections.

The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends. Flowers are a symbol for sharing. The study explored where in their homes people displayed flowers. Once received, arrangements were placed in areas of the home that are open to visitors – such as foyers, living rooms and dining rooms – suggesting that flowers make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere. People who buy more flowers are happier. Once learning the study results, participants in all ages and gift categories reported that they would be buying more flowers in the future. This may seem like a bit of promotion for the floral and horticultural industry, but I thought these results would be interesting to everyone. With so much stress and depression in today’s world, it’s great

alentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you really want to make your special person happy, here is something you may find interesting. The Society of American Florists partnered with the world renowned researcher, Jeannette HavilandJones, Ph.D., of Rutgers University, on some ground-breaking research to examine the effect of flowers on human emotion and well being. Over a ten month period, some very interesting results were discovered. Dr. Haviland-Jones and her research team found that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects future behaviour in a positive manner far beyond what is normally true. Flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods.

TREASURE BEACH, JAMAICA – Treasure Beach, on Jamaica’s southwest coast, has a row of small, quiet hotels rimming a bay shared with local fishermen.

the breeze. But the fishermen also do business offering a taxi service out to an extraordinary watering hole perched on stilts over a submerged sandbar. It’s a 30-minute ride out to the Pelican Bar in an outboarddriven fishing boat at speed over a half-kilometre of sea seemingly more potholed than the country’s roads, and the trip is a thrill in itself. While holding on tightly as the prow slams into yet

another wave there’s the always prospect of a calming drink at the end of the ride. The Pelican Bar itself is an idealized tree house, a hut assembled mostly from mangrove wood, with sides a grid work of woven sticks, and a complex jumble of branches to hold up a shaggy grass roof. It looks at once sturdy and fragile. The original was put up in 2001 and Continued: p23

in the middle of the sea lasted until it was blown down by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. By then it had become an established attraction and was quickly rebuilt. A rickety stepladder of branches leads up to the uneven plank floor supported by a small forest of spindly poles driven into the sandbar below. Despite a small wind turbine on the roof to provide power for the beer fridge behind the small screened-in bar in the corner, the structure is the last word in rustic, also sporting furniture of rough-hewn wood. Where other pubs have a cat or a dog, the Pelican Bar has pet rays, prowling in the bar’s shadow waters, close enough to touch. The occasional prettily mottled crab scuttles sideways across the floor. Owner Floyd Forbes, the fisherman who built the Pelican after having dreamt of it one night, can be found lounging at one end of a small jetty, too relaxed to say very much. If he’s not here when you arrive, his phone number is on a wooden sign over the bar. Call him and he’ll show up, or just as likely he’ll tell you where the key to the bar is, so you can help yourself. But usually a cold

Red Stripe beer or rum punch is quickly produced by a barman. Surprisingly, the bar is busiest in the morning, with a mixture of pre-lunch, post-fishing drinkers, and people bathing from the steps or jetty. But a trip out at sunset is recommended for the drama of the changing light and a chance to sit, cold beer in hand, and watch pelicans repeatedly lumbering ponderously into the air like over-laden cargo aircraft, only to plummet steeply, with

wings swept back, and beak first to skewer fish. And after a few beers or glasses of Jamaican rum, the ride back under moonlight and past a shoreline now twinkling with lights merely seems to add to the reasons to return the next evening. Explore More:

The number of house sales ‘inch up’ in Chilliwack Chilliwack-area house sales continue to “inch up” to last year’s levels, suggesting the B.C. economy is recovering, says Kyle Hislop, president of the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board. “We’re still waiting for the U.S. market to fire on all cylinders again before we can recover completely,” he said. The “normalizing” of the market is welcome, he added, but mortgage changes by the federal government will put the squeeze on first-time

home buyers in March. A potential buyer who qualified for $300,000 under the old rules will qualify for only $275,000 under the new mortgage regulations in March.

“That squeezes a number of people out of the market, and we want home ownership to be more affordable, not less,” Hislop said. But February could still see a rush of home-

ries that range from ballet, tap, stage, song and dance, street jazz, piano, vocals, as well as in choir, strings, bands, brass and woodwinds. “There is some wonderful entertainment by young students for just $3,” says festival chair Madelene Lange. “You can’t find that kind of deal anywhere.” They’re still actively looking for volunteers, too, Lange said. Call her to find out how at 604795-9633. “We needs upward of 350,” she estimated. “It gives everyone a sense of giving back and they get to be part of a great event.

The Chilliwack Lions Club has been welcoming competitors, adjudicators, and performers to town for the 64th Annual Chilliwack Lions Music and Dance Festival for a full week. More than 5,400 festival participants will stream into Chilliwack over the course of the festival to take the stage, mainly at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, as well as a couple of other venues. It’s the first year the shiny new cultural centre stands in as the main venue. “It’s taken some adjustment,” said festival chair Madelene Lange. “Like everything, it’s taken a little bit of time. But

the centre staff have been just wonderful and have assisted in every way they can to help us make the transition.” The Lions Music and Dance fest has built a long and proud tradition in the community, for more than six decades. “This is the first festival on the circuit, so the kids are all vying for the chance to compete at the provincials,” Lange says. Thirteen adjudicators will evaluate the dozens of varied performances. The fest kicked off Friday with dance in the cultural centre and they’ll continue until Feb. 21, and then music sessions will begin Feb. 22 and run until March 10. Every year the fest attracts young performers in catego-

You know that face. Many locals will recognize the lead actor of Billy Bishop Goes to War from the hysterical A&W commercial featuring the fresh-faced Ryan Beil as the bumbling trainee. Not only was the popular TV commercial shot in Chilliwack, but Beil is returning on Feb. 14 to offer a different side of himself, one that really tests the very limits of his acting ability, in the vibrant lead role as Billy Bishop. He plays the high-flying ace from the First World War, a fighter pilot who crosses swords with commanders, the Germans, and the British in a tale of derring-do. Beil has already nabbed a Jessie Richardson award this year, one of B.C.’s top theatre prizes, for his role as Bishop. But still the commercial dogs the 27-year-old actor. He has his own Facebook page and fans as the bumbling A&W trainee, and has gained a fair bit of notoriety for it, said director Sarah Rodgers, in a phone interview with The Progress. “So we were in bar in Saskatoon, on tour with Billy Bishop, and someone comes up to Ryan and says, ‘I know you… You’re that A&W guy.” But performing the Billy Bishop role on the theatrical stage is like playing the Canadian hamlet. “So this guy has chops,” says the award-winning director, who also won a Jessie for direction. The strength of the story goes a long way, and Rodgers calls it “brilliant.” “There’s also lots of humour and wit in this show,” she said, “and yet it is moving and powerful at times.” Throughout the story, the myth of the man is revealed as he tells of those who saw war as a good time, reconciling the ecstasy of flying with the horrors of WWI. But how does the director and cast “blow the dust off the production” and make it new?

Competing with caricatures It’s a unique Caricature Contest linking the sports world with the arts community. Here’s how it’s going to roll out. Fans get to pick their favourite Chilliwack Bruin, sketch a caricature on that player based on a photograph, and then enter it for a chance to win a grand prize. Headshots of the local hockey players can be found online, along with contest specifics, including size, media, and entry instructions. Entrants are asked to keep in mind that a caricature is an exaggerated cartoon image of an individual, often with a miniature body, large head and sometimes

striking a pose. Completed works of art are to be dropped off at the Community Arts Council reception, located within the Cultural Centre on Corbould Street, by Friday, February 25. All caricatures will be on display at the March 2 Bruins game, with ribbons awarded to the top five entries, judged by Bruins reps. The top five will also be on display at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for two weeks following the game. Grand prizes include two tickets to a Bruins game, two tickets to Pinocchio, two tickets to The Matinee, two tickets to The Drowsy Chaperone, and free gui-

tar lessons. The caricature contest is just one of the many offerings the participating art organizations have planned, including a fantastic entertainment lineup at the March 2 Bruins game. It will be like going to a concert and sports game at the same time. All fans of the arts receive an exclusive discounted ticket for the March 2 game of just $10. Just mention your love for the arts when you call the Bruins office at 604.792.GOAL(4625). For Caricature Contest specifics, including size, media, and entry instructions, please visit www.chilliwackculturalcentre. ca/bruins or call 604.392.8000 and ask for KellyAnne.

ly chose the acoustic guitar to be the main instrumental voice of the piece, along with some electric guitar. She had always declined offers to direct the play in the past, not imagining she could match the original. “What changed for me was when Ryan said, ‘My friend Zach is a guitar player. I immediately thought it would open up a whole new vision. I realized I was going to do something no one has ever done before.” It was a creative risk and she leapt at the opportunity. “What’s really exciting about this piece is that the musician Zachary Gray is actually

Angst poetry is the name of the game. University of the Fraser Valley’s Library, Theatre and English departments present the Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know poetry slam on Friday, February 11 in the Chilliwack campus theatre lobby. The new theme, which refers to Lady Caroline Lamb’s sentiments about Romantic Poet Lord Byron, replaces the Love Hurts theme from the past two events. Just like last time, poets register just before the performance and have three minutes to present an original poem. Judges are randomly selected from the audience. In round one, poets compete for applause. In round two, finalists present a second poem and compete for cash and prizes. There are no props, musical instruments or fireworks. Love or angst poetry is suggested but not mandatory. Poems can be about any topic. Doors open and poets register in the theatre lobby at 7 p.m. The slamming starts at 7:30 p.m. The theatre department will open the bar and concession for drinks and light refreshments. For more information or to be part of the fun, call 604792-0025, local 2471. There are two cash prizes for the top poets, as well as UFV theatre tickets and Director’s Festival passes, a UFV hoodie, Student Union Society T-shirts and more.

Cultural centre is off and running The Progress It’s the first progress report from the Chilliwack Arts and Cultural Centre Society, and the signs are very positive, said society president Dave Stephen. They’ve taken stock after four months of running the brand-new Cultural Centre. More than 19,000 tickets were sold through the box office, bringing in revenues of more than $326,000. “We’ve had a successful opening half of our initial season, and we are on target in terms of our budgeting and overall use projections for the Cultural Centre,” said Stephen. A couple of the most recent success stories on the main stage include the more than 4,750 people attending the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts production of Seussical the Musical, and the production of Forever Plaid selling out three and a half weeks before the performance. The Cultural Centre society oversees operation of the facility on behalf of the City of Chilliwack with a $400,000 management agreement, and is responsible for generating $600,000 to $700,000 of their $1-million operating budget. Despite the red-carpet

opening in September there is still an ongoing wish-list of extras being worked on, that will further equip the building with everything from lobby furniture to technical equipment, special effects or lighting gear. “We are also very grateful for the ongoing support, not only of users, but by the donors and supporters of our key fundraising initia-

tives,” he said. They have included the 88 Key Club, Take Your Seat and the naming of various parts of the facility. However, they’ve stepped back somewhat from the effort to find an overall building-naming corporate sponsor. They’re still working through some of the first year challenges of running the multi-mil-

lion dollar facility. “It’s a very involved and complicated building so in our first year of operating it has involved using some of our best guesses,” he said. “We’re still figuring it all out in some ways. It’s been a huge learning curve for all of us, but we’re feeling pretty good about where we’re at.”

Perspectives

Do we have what it takes to make relationships work? Human pair bonding (aka; marriage, commonlaw, intimate couple relationships) is an important but unfortunately unrecognized realm for improving public health. Consider this irony. Every fall school principals brace themselves for the day head lice are found. Parents get quite distressed about it. Is this a health problem? No. Head lice are a nuisance. They don’t carry disease and so aren’t considered a health problem. Nonetheless when school starts the principal’s office and the public health nurses are besieged with calls. Parental pair bonding on the other hand has enormous potential for the good or ill of children and yet receives no such interest except when it goes terribly wrong. Domestic violence is a case in point. We, through government agencies and voluntary efforts, attempt to pick up the pieces of these bonding disasters. There are even some resources dedicated to mitigating the negative impacts of divorce. Legislation insures some measure of divorce justice. Courts attempt to develop sensible plans the children of parents at war. Mediators assist estranged mates to part fairly. What do we do, collectively, as a society through our governments to ensure these disasters don’t occur?

Essentially nothing. Why are we satisfied to pick up the pieces when pair bonds fail instead of helping them to succeed? The answer may lie in this. The only organizations that seem to invest in promoting pair bonds are the churches and communities Rob of faith. LEES Pastors often act as surrogate marriage counselors and churches have long been the promoters of marriage enrichment activities. Problem is there has been a sharp decline in religious affiliation and attendance. According to the Vanier Institute 2010 publication Families Count: Profiling Families in Canada fewer people are marrying, the age of first marriage is increasing, common law unions are more common and four in 10 marriages end in divorce. There are no easily available statistics on “married singles”, people in pair bonds who are essentially estranged or simply disconnected and unfulfilled; roommates, not soulmates. Yet these latter unions too have enormous effects on mental health, physical health and motivation just as do those that unravel publicly. (I rou-

science exists to demonstrate poor relationships can be made fulfilling and those destined to separation can do so with less harm. We have the social psychology to decrease rates of smoking, to change eating and

tinely ask my classes at university their estimates of marriages that are fulfilling and they typically report about only five per cent). Perhaps you might think we can’t do anything about it. Ample

knowing it isn’t if we have an earthquake, it is “when”. Isn’t it time we thought of human pair bonds, this key social structure of our society, in the same way and make them a critical focus for public health

driving habits. In other words, we have the tools to proceed. Only the vision and will is wanting. We build dikes by rivers because one day they will be needed. We install seismic upgrades

Manning out as Bruins face Rockets

PUCK PREVIEW

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress The Chilliwack Bruins try to keep their playoff hopes afloat this weekend as they tackle the Kelowna Rockets in a crucial B.C. division home-and-home. Trailing the Kamloops Blazers by one point (with five games in hand) for the eighth and final Western conference playoff spot, the Bruins know they’ve got to start cashing in. But the Rockets present a major obstacle. Always a thorn in Chilliwack’s side, Kelowna figures to be even trickier coming off back-to-back road losses in Prince George (4-2 and 3-0). The Rockets were without the services of veteran Mitchell Callahan and young winger Colton Sissons — both should be back for this weekend. “It’s tough when you lose guys like that because of their style of play and what they bring to the team,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “When you don’t have that gritty element in your lineup, you need someone to step up. And in Prince George we didn’t get that.” Meanwhile, the Bruins prepare for an extended stretch without captain Brandon Manning, who was issued a seven game suspension for a hit on Kamloops defenceman Austin Madaisky last weekend, one that

HEAD-TO-HEAD The Bruins are 12-23-1-1 alltime against the Rockets, with a record of 8-10-0-1 within the friendly confines of Prospera Centre.

LAST MEETING A four goal second period was the difference as the Bruins dropped a 6-4 decision in Kelowna Feb. 2. Roman Horak had two goals for Chilliwack with Mike Forsyth and Kevin Sundher adding singles.

by Manning, and if Madaisky hadn’t ended up writhing on the ice for five minutes, the play might have passed without much notice. It seems a case where Manning was punished for the result rather than the act. “It’s unfortunate the guy got injured, but the league made a decision and we live with it,” Habscheid said. It’s a tough time to lose the captain, but if the Bruins can make do in his absence, it may be a blessing in disguise. The 20-yearold hasn’t been himself

lately, playing at much less than 100 per cent coming off a groin injury. His mobility has been hampered and his dangerous point shot has been significantly less threatening. “He’s still our best defenceman and our captain, so no doubt it hurts,” Habscheid said. “But this will hopefully give him a chance to heal up a bit so that when he does come back he’s close to 100 per cent and ready to go.” The Bruins and Rockets met nine days

ago, with Kelowna taking a 6-4 decision. Penalties were Chilliwack’s downfall, and Habscheid knows his team has to get that cleaned up if they want wins. “They’ve had a good run lately, but I liked the way we played in that last game up in Kelowna,” he said. “We just have to keep our penalties in check, play hard and give ourselves a chance.” The Bruins are back on home ice Sunday night at 5 p.m., hosting the Tri-City Americans.

FIGHTING BACK AGAINST CANCER

CHILLIWACK (2010-11 STATS)

The Canadian Cancer Society and the Chilliwack Bruins join forces tomorrow night to FIGHTBACK Against Cancer.

Cascades control playoff destiny Suspension question

Dan Kinvig, Black Press If the University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team is looking for a theme song, Takin’ Care of Business by Bachman-Turner Overdrive would be a natural fit. Like the Cascade men, the UFV women

find themselves in ninth place with four games to go. But at 8-12, Al Tuchscherer’s squad has firm control of its playoff destiny. The Cascades are currently trailing Thompson Rivers University (9-13) for the final Canada West postseason berth, but they have two games in hand on the WolfPack. Given that they’re finishing up against lowly Lethbridge (4-16) and Brandon (0-20), UFV also stands a reasonable chance of overtaking seventh-place Calgary (10-10). Tuchscherer is usually an understated fellow, but the coach wasn’t afraid to say he

still likes his team’s playoff chances following a pair of weekend losses to a very good Winnipeg squad. “We’re going to take care of business – we’ll be there,” Tuchscherer promised. “If we do what we’ve been doing the past month, and play like we’ve been playing, we’re going to be fine. And we’re going to be scary when we get into the playoffs.” Winnipeg, ranked ninth in the nation, got a first-hand glimpse at how scary the youthful Cascades can be when they’re clicking on all cylinders. UFV pushed Winnipeg to overtime in Friday’s opener, ulti-

mately dropping a 79-70 decision. Chilliwack’s Nicole Wierks led the team with 15 points, followed by another Chilliwack native, Alyssa Gaukel, with 13. Mission’s Aieisha Luyken had 12 and Winnipeg’s Tessa Klassen had 11 in UFV’s balanced attack. On Saturday, Winnipeg shot the lights out, hitting a sizzling 12 of 22 attempts from beyond the threepoint line in a dominant 75-47 win. Amy Ogidan racked up 24 points for Winnipeg, while Wierks, with 10 points, was the lone Cascade to score in double digits.

be playing good enough basketball (to make the playoffs).” UFV guard Joel Friesen came up big, with 24 points on 8-for11 shooting, including a trio of three-pointers. Zeon Gray (18 points)

and Sam Freeman (14) also hit double figures. The Cascades wrap up the regular season on the road at Lethbridge (Feb. 11-12) and at home against Brandon (Feb. 18-19). Both teams are below

SUNDAY FEB 13 5:00PM PROSPERA CENTRE

At maybe the worst possible time of the possible season, the Chilliwack season, Bruins find themselves Bruins without the services of captain Brandon Manning. Manning. The 20-year-old was suspended seven games suspended for a hit on Kamloops for Blazer D-man Austin Blazer Madaisky, and that is Madaisky, the subject of this week’s column by Bruins radio colour man Jacob Bestebroer. Bestebroer. Manning was given a seven game suspension on Wednesday for a play in last Friday’s game that left Madaisky with a fractured C-7 vertebrae. Madaisky is expected to make a full recovery but will not play again this season. Now, the debate begins. Too much, or too little? If you haven’t seen the hit, I encourage you to watch it on you Youtube.com (search Youtube.com Manning suspension) because explaining it in words is difficult. The wrong word at any The point in the explanation could easily imply guilt on one of the two parties involved and that wouldn’t be fair. Here’s an admittedly simple version of

the play. Manning dumped the puck into the Blazers zone and continued in on the forecheck. Madaisky headed for the corner as well. The two made contact right around the goal line as they headed into the corner. Madaisky spun around awkwardly and hit the boards upright back first. On any play like this the order of concern is obviously first for the condition of the player who is hurt. Then you move on to what (if any) the penalty should be. Madaisky stayed down for a few minutes before heading to the dressing room. The severity of the injury was not discovered till the next day. The penalty to Manning was a five minute major for boarding and a game misconduct. As with all non-fighting majors, the league reviews to decide if further punishment is deserved. That took five days. Was the contact between the two players before they reached the general area of the puck against the

rules? Possibly, but we see it all the time. Ironically, it happened on the very first shiftt of the next game. You could make the argument that no contact between players should be allowed in a situation like this until one player has possession of the puck. Agreed, but again, we see it happen withoutt any penalty called all the time. Of course, thankfully these plays usually do not end like this one did. Was it a hit from behind? Definitely not. Was there intent to injure? Absolutely not. Was the severity of the injury factored in? I don’t know. k Some people think Manning got off easy. Some think he was dealt with too harshly. My wish is that with every suspension off three or more games the league would issue a statement explaining the process that led to determining the length of suspension. Unfortunately that is not the case so we are left to form opinions without all the needed information. jb@chilliwackbruins.com

Mathematically speaking, Saturday’s road game against the Winnipeg Wesmen wasn’t necessarily a must-win for the University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball team. But in practical terms, it was a game the Cascades simply had to have. Just 24 hours earlier, the lastplace Wesmen had dealt UFV an 88-73 defeat to relegate the Cascades to ninth place in Canada West (top eight make the playoffs). While UFV (7-13) remained in ninth in the wake of Saturday’s 75-68 triumph – eight-place Calgary (8-12) swept two games against seventh-place Manitoba (9-11) on the weekend – the clutch victory means the Cascades’ playoff goal is much more realistic. “It definitely was a must-win,” Cascades coach Bar naby Craddock acknowledged. “If we couldn’t get the W on Saturday, I just didn’t know if we’d

The family of Hazel Hooper, who passed away December 15, 2010, wish to thank all extended family, friends and co-workers who supported each of us through our mom’s lengthy illness. Thank you for the cards, flowers, phone calls, emails, food and many hugs. Thanks to Pastor Norm Miller who was always there for us. Special thanks to Dr. Kishi, the palliative care team, Dr. Bull and all the wonderful nurses, caregivers, volunteers and hand holders at the Cascade Hospice. We really appreciate the special attention, expressions of love and care given to our mom. Everyone went above and beyond to accommodate mom’s idiosyncrasies and answering our many questions. We know that mom was really well cared for and she enjoyed her time sharing knowledge of gardening, plants and many childhood memories with all of you. You were able to make this difficult time bearable for all of us.

POITTRIS Ingnace John

Aug. 5, 1952 - Feb. 7, 2011 With heavy hearts the family is devastated to announce the sudden passing of a beloved Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Companion & Friend. Ingnace John Poittris was tragically taken in a workrelated accident at the age of 58 outside Fort McMurray. Ingnace worked over 30 years in the pipeline industry and did it all for his boys. He was the epitome of a true man. He did what had to be done to provide for his family without ever complaining. He was born in Vancouver, BC and then became a longterm resident of Chilliwack, although he spent a lot of his time working on the pipelines across Canada. Ingnace was survived by his loving sons, Nathan (Karen), Dareld (Courtney), Darsell (Lacey), Dean, mother of his children, Buryl Poittris, precious grandchildren, Ethan, Bobbi, Carter, Jaylee & Jayce, sisters Moneca (Larry), Mary and brother Pat (Dulcie). Missed terribly by Sue Stoten, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and co-workers. Ingnace was predeceased by his father and mother, brothers and sister and his loving family dog, Arnold and many squirrels! We love you dad and always will, We did in life, In death we do still. Each morning we start with a broken heart, But carry on daily playing our part. On you dad we knew we could depend. You helped us along. If we walk in your footsteps, We’ll never go wrong. A Viewing for Family & Friends will be held on Thursday, February 17th, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church. Funeral Service will be held on Friday, February 18th, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary’s Church, 8909 Mary Street, Chilliwack. Burial will be held at St. Mary’s Cemetery following the service.
