Dogs kill Jersey calves in Greendale Farmer issues warning Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Up to 150 people can be served in the dining room at the new Ruth & Naomi's building. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

More funding needed to realize dream Ruth & Naomi’s looking for an additional $400,000 Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Construction on the new Ruth & Naomi’s Mission building in downtown Chilliwack is a few weeks away from completion. The $1-million project is an expansion of the services offered by the mission, with the plan to offer transitional housing spaces for up to 24 residents. About 100 to 130 street people arrive at Ruth & Naomi’s Mission on Fletcher Street every day to be fed. That’s down from the maximum of 150 per day they were feeding a while back, but officials are eager to get on with the long-awaited housing component.

About half the Ruth & Naomi’s project value has come from donated materials and labour to date by 80 members of the Chilliwack construction trade, said Paul de Koning, a project manager and board director. But it is now clear they are going to be short an estimated $400,000 to finish the upstairs section of the new building. The shortfall means they will need to raise more operational funding, including an estimated $15,000 per unit in the eightroom section, either from government funding or donations, as well as $150,000 to furnish the now-empty units and computer room. “We have not approached the

province for any funding at this point, but the board sees that is going to be necessary,” said board chair Wayne Massey. They have to furnish and staff the transitional housing component they’ve been promising. A commercial-grade kitchen, spacious dining hall and washroom facilities are now in place on the main floor of the new building, as are the residential units upstairs in the 8000-square foot building. Project proponents thought initially they were going to be able to finish the downstairs portion first and get their occupancy permit right away. But city officials notified them that the upper portion would have to

be completed, staffed and operational as well before the permit would be issued. “We misunderstood and thought we could separate the components,” he noted. Part of the current financial crunch was caused by “moving goalposts” in terms of provincial environmental cleanup standards which changed in recent years, Massey said. Plans and design for the new building were ready to go several years ago. But the former dry cleaners’ site had to be environmentally remediated first at a cost of $350,000, the board chair said. “It was an unexpected setback,” he said. Continued: FUNDS/ p18

Two calves are dead and two are recovering after a brutal dog attack Monday at a Chilliwack dairy farm. “I’ve had enough,” Marc Dalton told The Progress from his Greendale dairy farm. “This has got to stop.” It’s the third time that livestock has been attacked, he said. The two large dogs were described as “pit bull-cross looking things.” They gutted one Jersey calf, ripped open another and tore the ear off a third. A fourth managed to escape. The dogs stopped, turned and looked directly at him as they were attacking the hapless animals in their little hutches. “When I went out there, they turned on me and weren’t scared of me at all,” said Dalton. “I had a stick and swung it at them, and they just sauntered away.” He gave chase but the dogs took off, scooting down a nearby driveway. The farmer said he finally called RCMP and made a report, and Animal Control officials circled the block yesterday in a truck, searching for the animals, to no avail. They told him they’d had numerous reports recently about dogs on the loose, Dalton said. Neighbours have also reported being chased by big dogs while cycling in the agricultural area. There are many of his neighbours who have kids playing nearby. “People shouldn’t be allowed to keep aggressive dogs like that. There’s no need for it,” Dalton said. “This should never have happened.” Police officials told the farmer he could kill any dogs roaming onto his property to attack livestock. Dalton said he knew that, but added it was nice to hear it directly from the police officers in this case. “People need to be aware that these dogs may be out there. Everyone needs to know so they can be extra careful.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

Race for school board seats draws a crowd Katie Bartel The Progress

Most didn’t bother to vote in November municipal election Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack earned the dubious distinction of having the second lowest voter turnout in the province in the wake of the 2011 municipal elections. Less than 15 per cent of those eligible in Chilliwack voted on Nov. 19, with only 9,343 people heading to the polls. Chilliwack has a population of about 80,000. Nonetheless, those who did cast a ballot for city council re-elected four incumbents, and brought in two new faces with the addition of local entrepreneurs Jason Lum and Ken Popove. The incumbents returned to council included: Chuck Stam, Sue Attrill,

Ken Huttema, and Stewart McLean. the council members were officially sworn in, and the mayor released her Mayor Sharon Gaetz was acclaimed.

2011

The school trustee election in November was unprecedented for Chilliwack. Twenty-four people put their hats in the ring, vying for just seven available seats. It was the most amount of school trustee candidates in all of B.C., and a 300 per cent increase from the 2008 election, where there were only eight candidates on the ballot. Parents, grandparents, teachers, retired principals, representatives from the District Parents’ Advisory Council, a university student, and members of the business community were all aiming for trusteeship. The only incumbent not running for re-election was John Henry Harter. In an interview with The Progress prior to the November election, Top Stories Harter cited ongoing infighting and micromanaging at the board level as one of the main reasons for not seeking re-election. Of the Year For several of the new candidates, however, those were the reasons why they were running. Chilliwack’s last board of education was repeatedly conflicted over what its role was, which often resulted in heated debates around the board table. Some trustees quoted the school act, which is legislated by the B.C. Education Ministry, that states the role of the board of education is to set and maintain the school district’s budget, create policy to guide the school district, and hire a superintendent. Others, however, believed their role should be more involved. Last April, trustee Heather Maahs requested the board revise policy 300 to give school trustees more authority in the hiring decisions of all senior executive staff, principals and vice principals. Multiple requests made by The Progress for a status update on where that policy currently stands were not returned by school district officials prior to press deadline. The last three years also saw the departure of several senior executive staff. Two assistant superintendents retired; the secretary treasurer took a position in Abbotsford; the director of finance quit; and superintendent Corinne McCabe tendered her resignation last June. Some of the candidates believed “micromanaging” at the board table was the reason for those departures. But while there seemed to be a clamoring for change, given the number of candidates on the campaign trail, the polls showed otherwise.

Sex charges stayed against teacher Robert Freeman The Progress Sex-related charges against a Chilliwack elementary school teacher were suddenly dropped in August - more than a year after he was arrested and suspended without pay. Crown prosecutors would not say why they decided to stay the charges just weeks

before a trial was scheduled to begin. Crown counsel Wendy van Tongeren Harvey only told the court that as the police investigation progressed, questions arose and the Crown concluded it had a “legal, moral and ethical duty” to stay the charges. Justice branch spokesperson Samantha Hume told The Progress it is “very

common” for the Crown to approve charges, based on the likelihood of getting a conviction, even as a police investigation continues. But in this case, she said, the investigation continued for 15 more months and then the Crown came to the conclusion that “we did not in fact have a substantial likelihood of conviction.” Hume was unable to com-

ment on what information changed the Crown’s belief that a conviction was likely. Meanwhile, teacher Jason Epp, 40, who taught for 15 years in the Chilliwack school district, is still not out of the legal woods. His case is still before the BC College of Teachers for review to determine if he can keep his licence to teach.

Walt Krahn was one of two newly elected school trustees out of 24 candidates during this year’s municipal election. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS FILE

Question: I am going to Hawaii later on this year and I would like my skin to look more youthful by being even toned, smooth and clear … would IPL work for me and how many treatments will I need? Susan, Abbotsford Answer: Over the years sun damage causes us to have broken capillaries and sun spots which can make us look 10 years older. We have various ways to improve skin texture and tone. We can start by using a combination of physician grade treatment products which include Vitamin A, hydroquinone and sunblock as well as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). Usually 3 - 5 treatments are necessary. If you are interested in a more aggressive treatment we can combine physician grade products, IPL and Fraxel laser – the combination will enhance each others results. You will need to continue protecting yourself from the sun and use sunblocks, hats and sunglasses to maintain the results. Dr. Marianna Snyman

R AESIDE

Moving forward A new year is almost here, and it’s an appropriate time to take a look at the political happenings of 2011 and how they are likely to shape 2012. On the federal scene, Canada finally has a majority government after almost seven years of minority governments. While the Conservatives have a comfortable majority, the government thus far hasn’t embarked on many bold initiatives. It is governing in challenging times, with the world economy precarious, and its caution is understandable. In provincial politics, what a difference a year makes. The governing Liberals, NDP and Conservatives all have new leaders, but the government is in trouble at year end. While new premier Christy Clark has provided a fresh face, she has done little to distinguish herself from her unpopular predecessor. The HST took one premier down and could take another, and her government, as well. The NDP, on the other hand, could have ended the year as deeply divided as it was in January. Instead, the party is ahead in the polls and new leader Adrian Dix appears to be on a roll. It looks like a government in waiting, although that will be up to the voters in May, 2013. Things could still change. The long-dormant Conservatives have come to life under John Cummins, and a very recent poll shows them tied with the Liberals. While that seems unlikely to last, the party has clearly attracted many disaffected former Liberal voters. This new political dynamic will see its first test in the new year as the three parties put forward candidates in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection. As Premier Clark said when she was in Chilliwack before Christmas, governing parties usually do poorly in byelections. But there is no indication the Liberals are willing to surrender the seat without a struggle. At the civic level, Chilliwack emerged from the municipal elections much the same as it did going in. Sharon Gaetz remains mayor, and the two new faces – Ken Popove, and Jason Lum – are no strangers to local issues. Both are well placed to add their perspectives to key issues like downtown revitalization and the continued evolution of the Canada Education Park in the year ahead.

NDP leader Adrian Dix buoyed by 2011 VICTORIA – Here are excerpts from my year-end interview with B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix: TF: There was a lot of cheering at your convention Dec. 10 when federal NDP leader Nycole Turmel said that B.C. shouldn’t have to pay Ottawa back the $1.6 billion HST transition payment. That hasn’t been your position. Isn’t this a mixed message for the public? AD: No. In the federal election campaign, the NDP advocated for that position, and they said that if they were elected, and of course it was the late Jack Layton who put forward the argument that B.C. would not have to return the money, would we have voted at that time to get rid of the HST. Obviously, while the NDP did extremely well in that election, we didn’t win. Mr. Harper

won. He says we have to pay the $1.6 billion back and the Liberal Party of B.C., Ms. Clark and Mr. Campbell’s party, signed a very bad deal for B.C. that we’re stuck with. TF: You replaced Carole James this year. At the root of that situation was a complaint about a policy vacuum Tom in the B.C. NDP. FLETCHER I put it to you that that vacuum still exists … AD: [laughs] I guess I can’t count on your support. TF: I’m making a list here. Increase corporate taxes to 2008 levels. Bring back a corporate capital tax and use that to fund student grants. Have I missed anything?

AD: In January and February, many people criticized those proposals, especially the one returning corporate taxes to 2008 levels. And then the government adopted, briefly, those proposals in May. So I’m delighted that I’m moving the political debate in a positive direction. I defy you to name any opposition leader in any jurisdiction in Canada who has been as specific on taxation as I have 18 months before an election. You’re going to see our detailed program in advance of the election. At the NDP convention I spoke at length about the key issues of our time, about the things that I’m campaigning for right now, including improving skills training in our province, addressing issues of inequality, addressing the fact that raw log exports are

out of control in the province. I get criticized on some days for being too specific and too policy-oriented, so I’m delighted to hear your criticism that I’m not specific enough. TF: The B.C. Liberals leapt on your recent statement about potentially increasing income taxes for high earners. This sounds like [federal NDP leadership candidate] Brian Topp’s suggestion of a new top tax bracket. Is that what you were saying? AD: On personal income taxes, I think because the B.C. Liberal Party has continually increased costs on middle class people, for example, shifting the hydro burden onto residential customers, and subsidizing industrial customers. They’re raising MSP premiums, raising ferr y fares, raising long-term care fees, they

Delays in B.C.’s congested court system intensified in 2011 and the provincial government rejected initial calls for an emergency cash infusion. The number of criminal cases at risk of being thrown out due to excessive delays grew throughout the year. Years of budget restraint has pushed the number of judges overseeing courts significantly below 2005 levels, despite a larger case load and increasing complexity. The issue hit a new crisis in June, when the province cut the number of sheriffs providing court security. Victoria agreed to relent and re-hire them after some judges refused to conduct trials without a sheriff present. JUNE Riot a black mark for Vancouver and region

Rioters went on the rampage in downtown Vancouver, torching cars and looting stores, in the wake of the Vancouver Canucks’ loss to Boston in the Stanley Cup final. Soon after, the perpetrators were outed in photos and videos posted on social media and many were found to hail from outlying cities. By November, Vancouver Police were recommending charges against an initial batch of 60 suspects, a third of whom were from Surrey. The province wants sentencing hearings to be televised

the possibility of light rail or bus rapid transit lines connecting White Rock and Langley. SkyTrain technology options were also on the list but Surrey council members said they favour a light rail system. The most ambitious options would cost in excess of $2 billion, but would be many years Top Stories away and dependent on TransLink getting more funding. Of the Year A parallel process is underway to extend rapid transit west on the Broadway corridor in Vancouver to UBC. It’s not yet clear which expansion would proceed first, but Metro Vancouver’s new regional growth strategy endorses giving Surrey priority because of the rapid growth south of the Fraser.

2011

AUGUST Voters choose to ditch HST

JULY New transit lines eyed

B.C. voters rejected the harmonized sales tax by a 55 per cent margin in a mail-in vote over the summer. The provincial government pledged to return to the former provincial sales tax, but indicated it will be a complex process taking up to 18 months. The referendum result was hailed as a victory for people power but it brings new uncertainty for many businesses, which must switch back to PST accounting systems. Home builders and renovators said the long delay in switching back from the HST is hurting them because buyers are opting to wait to avoid the provincial seven per cent charged on services and upper-end new homes.

TransLink unveiled a series of options for eventually extending rapid transit in Surrey, dangling

OCTOBER Mayors okay TransLink gas tax hike

The region’s mayors approved a two cent per litre increase in the TransLink gas tax next April to ensure the Evergreen Line to Coquitlam proceeds and for other transit upgrades. The provincial government also passed legislation enabling the increase. The transit expansion plan still requires more money. Unless r mayors can negotiate other new m funding sources for TransLink, a f property tax increase would also p take effect. t Potential new sources are expected to be controversial and could see a vehicle levy imposed in the region, or even some form of road pricing or regional tolling. NOVEMBER Drunk driving penalties in flux

Government officials credited B.C.’s stiffer system of roadside penalties for a huge drop in drunk driving fatalities. The province also hoped the reduced emphasis on criminal prosecutions of impaired driving would reduce pressure on the courts. But the strategy took a hit late in the year when a court ruling overturned part of the penalty system, leaving police at least temporarily unable to issue 90-day roadside suspensions and up to $4,000 in fees to drivers caught over the legal blood-alcohol limit of 0.08. In such cases, police must once again choose to pursue impaired driving charges or just issue 24-hour suspensions. In the lower “warn” range, three-day suspensions are still permitted. The province intends to revise the rules to give drivers more scope to appeal the roadside penalties.

All incumbents running, except for Darlene Wahlstrom, were re-elected. The incumbents did not gain the most votes though. Newcomer Walt Krahn, a retired school principal, topped the polls with 3,923 votes – nearly 1,500 more votes than the seventh seat. Fellow newcomer, Barry Neufeld, a former school trustee, was second in line with 3,505 votes. In 2008, trustees Silvia Dyck and Martha Wiens topped the polls, but in this election, they were number three and four respectively. Less than 15 per cent of Chilliwack’s voting population voted. Following the election, failed candidate Kirsten Brandreth quit the District Parents’ Advisory Council (DPAC). Not only was she disappointed with the election outcome, coming in 10th of all candidates, she was also disappointed that no real change had occurred. After more than 16 years advocating on behalf of parents, the former DPAC president felt her time in the district had come to an end. The current DPAC president is Gord Byers. One of the top priorities of the new board is hiring a new superintendent. Current superintendent Michael Audet was hired on a one-year, temporary contract after McCabe quit. The board will be searching for a new superintendent in the new year.

Chilliwack cuts hillside density Buildout potential was cut down considerably in the City of Chilliwack’s latest area plan for the Eastern Hillsides. The new density threshold is set at 1,700 homes for about 4,000 people, which is less than a third of what people were talking about in the mid-1990s. The 4,000-people mark was pegged as the threshold at which infrastructure costs would rise “significantly,� creating uncertainty as to how those costs could be shared equitably, according to city officials. Mayor Sharon Gaetz said the plan would most impact those who had purchased land on speculation that there would be higher density, but hillside residents

Actions of business today are under a microscope and with social media blasting perceived ‘good or not so good’ practices, companies need to effectively address social responsibility issues and determine how to move forward in today’s business environment. Ever changing regulations concerning product quality, safety and the conservation and protection of the natural environment determine how business is being done and can determine the life or death of companies whose products and technologies are affected if they can’t keep up.

Yale treaty sparks protest The Progress A treaty signed in April by the Yale First Nation and later ratified by the B.C. government sparked a protest and ‘war council’ by the Sto:lo Nation and Sto:lo Tribal Council. The treaty is now before the federal government for final ratification. The Sto:lo insist a treaty should not have been negotiated with the Yale First Nation - which they claim is in fact a Sto:lo band — especially one that gives the smaller community control over Fraser Canyon fishing sites claimed by the larger Sto:lo community, and access to “sacred” cultural sites. The Yale cannot deny “reasonable access” under the treaty terms, but asking the Yale for permission to cross treaty lands is no comfort to the Sto:lo, who point to the long history of tension and mistrust between the two groups. The Sto:lo want the Five-Mile Fishery area that includes several cemeteries and dry-rack sites taken out of the treaty and

set aside in a “shared-territory” agreement with the Yale First Nation. Yale Chief Robert Hope has promised to work out access agreements with the Sto:lo, but a “shared-territory” agreement seems out of the question. A BC Treaty Commission spokesman said efforts will continue to bring the two sides together, and other means of resolving overlapping claims have been used in ki native i the past, including asking elders to reach agreements using traditional laws and protocols. But it appears the law courts may be the ultimate venue, an expensive proposition in terms of taxpayers’ dollars, which raises the question why treaty talks continued in light of the on-going Sto:lo objections. The proposed treaty is not yet before MPs for ratification, but Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl said he supports the agreement. If ratified by the federal gov-

ernment, the Yale treaty would be the third reached under the B.C. treaty process. The Yale have been in treaty talks for 18 years. The Yale treaty provisions include a $10.7-million capital transfer, $2.2 milli in development lion fu funding, and 1,966 h hectares of land o owned in fee simple, 2 hectares of that 217 in former reserve la lands and 1,749 h hectares in Crown la lands. The agreement l i l d also includes self-government provisions and phase-out of tax exemptions. Sixty-six Yale band members, 68 percent of the 97 members eligible to cast ballots, voted in favor of the treaty. There are about 150 members in total. There are about 4,000 Sto:lo, but the majority belong to bands in the Sto:lo Tribal Council which is not in treaty talks. Sto:lo Nation band members remain at the treaty table.

New schools taking shape SCHOOL from p8 The new school is almost 4,000 square metres; more than 650 square metres from the size of the old school. Of that, 461 square metres is designated for community learning space. The new school features outdoor teaching spaces in addition to its classrooms; it has a large, open courtyard at the centre of the school; a multipurpose room with commercial-sized garage doors opening up into the courtyard; and a gymnasium with change rooms accessible from both the inside and outside. Early on, Yarrow elementary was projected to be completed by Sept. 2011, however

construction delays postponed the move-in date to January, 2012, which was again postponed until spring break this year. The school district announced the postponement in September, stating that while construction on the school would in fact be completed in January, staff needed to be trained in operations of the new heating and ventilation system. Yarrow students will be in their new school on March 26, 2012. In February of this year, designs for the new Chilliwack secondary school were unveiled. The new CSS will feature three storeys, a Neighbourhood Learning Centre, large

udent gathering spacspac student es, a professional quality athletic field, an aboriginal cultural centre, and facilities to accommodate Fraser Valley Distance Education. It will be built for 1,200 students with plans to expand up to 1,500 students. Fifteen per cent of the new school will be devoted to the Neighbourhood Learning Centre, which will provide services for children and families, young parents and the aboriginal community.

Former superintendent Corinne McCabe told The Progress in February that the new facility would change the face of education. CSS construction started in May. The music building and north wing of the old school was demolished, which resulted in several classes being displaced into portables this school year. The new school is expected to open in February, 2013. All schools were designed with LEED Gold standards (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design System) and have included several wood components.

Mission looks for more funds FUNDS from Front Underground contamination is a common obstacle to growth in the downtown, which has stymied redevelopment efforts, along with the struggling economy. To help them cover some of the outstanding costs, Ruth & Naomi’s Mission is also launching an “adopt-a-room” fundraiser with the aim of raising the $15,000 costs to outfit each of the suites, he said. “We’re so proud of the citizens, churches and businesses that have stepped forward to help so far. That’s what makes this project unique and different.” But unfortunately they’re not quite there yet. “It’s been made clear to us that we will now need some major funding to take us to the next level,” said Massey. “The need is too far-reaching and we’re going to need some government assistance.” On a typical day, about 15 to 20 people stay overnight at Ruth & Naomi’s, for which the mission receives absolutely no subsidy. “We have successfully managed to get several people off the street and into apartments. Some found employment. We just need to finish what we’ve started,” Massey said.

Drunk driver: ‘Eventually you are going to hit something’

D

Court restores full arsenal of roadside penalties against drunks Jeff Nagel Black Press The courts have temporarily restored the power of police officers to issue stiff 90-day suspensions to impaired drivers caught with a blood-alcohol level over 0.08. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Jon Sigurdson, who previously struck down that part of the roadside penalty system, issued a follow-up ruling Friday that suspends the implementation of his decision until June 30. That effectively gives the provincial government six months to pass new legislation to ensure the roadside penalties and process to appeal them comply with the law. Justice Sigurdson noted the government considers the automatic roadside penalties more effective than criminal prosecutions in fighting impaired driving. “I have concluded that an immediate declaration of invalidity of part of the (administrative penalty) regime may pose a danger to the public,” he found. Sigurdson’s original Nov. 30 ruling fanned fears that police powers to battle impaired drivers would be seriously eroded just as the holiday CounterAttack campaign was getting underway. F I N E

W I N E

For three weeks since the Nov. 30 judgment, police had been unable to issue the 90-day suspensions and related penalties and fees that add up to $3,750 for drivers who blow in the “fail” range over 0.08. Instead, officers at roadblocks faced a choice: arrest the driver and proceed with a time-consuming criminal impaired investigation or else issue only a 24-hour suspension. A roadblock that caught two impaired drivers would lose its investigating officers to the criminal procedure and might have to halt enforcement early that night as a result. For roadside readings of 0.08 per cent or higher, police had previously been imposing a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impounding the vehicle for 30 days. That suspension can cost a driver $3,750, including $700 for towing and storage and $1,420 to take a mandatory “responsible driver” course. To comply with the court rulings, the province must ensure those drivers get a chance to challenge the decision. “We will work to introduce changes to the Motor Vehicle Act as soon as possible in the spring legislative session,” Solicitor General Shirley Bond said in a statement Friday. “We continue to analyze Justice Sigurdson’s comprehensive decision to determine what

L I Q U O R

C O L D

B E E R

those changes will consist of.” Justice Sigurdson also found 90-day suspensions are constitutional for drivers who refuse to provide a breath sample upon request. He also upheld the use of the immediate roadside prohibitions for drivers who blow in the “warn” range between 0.05 and 0.08. Bond noted the roadside penalties resulted in a 40 per cent drop in alcohol-related deaths in the first year. “The statistics speak for themselves,” she said. “Forty-five more people are alive to enjoy the holidays this year because police stopped impaired drivers, people who would not be with their families today without this legislation. “We are not going to give up our fight to remove impaired drivers from B.C.’s roads, and we will continue to use every responsible tool at our disposal to combat drinking and driving,” Bond said. “We want the public to know police will be out in full force over Christmas as part of their CounterAttack program to protect the public from people who are drinking and driving.” Sigurdson has yet to rule on whether B.C. drivers who were punished without sufficient right to appeal are entitled to compensation.

runk drivers do not have a special place in my heart — unless it’s that cold, icy-hard part where child molesters, wife beaters and animal abusers get a thrashing-over my better angels shudder to see. But Chris Leclerc, a drunk driver who struck and seriously injured a 15-year-old Chilliwack boy as he sped along Chilliwack River Road last September, gained a measure of my respect when he walked into The Progress newsroom just before Christmas. Leclerc said he wanted to tell his story to warn others about the perils of drinking and driving. “If I can stop one or two people from getting into a vehicle drunk over the holidays, and maybe save a life ... that’s all I have to offer right now.” I’ve covered plenty of court stories over my 25 years as a reporter, and much is made in the courtroom about “public denunciation” of the offender — but it amounts to nothing really except that one newspaper story that’s soon forgotten. I’ve never had a convicted drunk driver come back when the dust has settled to bare his shame in public all over again. So I decided to give Leclerc a chance — not to comfort himself — but to let him warn others with his story about drinking and driving.” “Drinking and driving is like having a 4,000-lb. gun — you may miss a few times but eventually you are going to hit something,” he said. What Leclerc, a chronic drinking driver with three previous convictions, eventually hit was a young boy — causing massive S E R V I C E

injuries from which he may never recover. Leclerc was sentenced to 18 months in jail, three years probation and a fiveyear driving ban. But it’s the damage Leclerc did to the boy — the horror of seeing his body lying by the roadside — and to the boy’s family — that remains. “There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about what happened,” Leclerc said. He doesn’t expect the family to ever forgive him, Robert or for the FREEMAN community to stop seeing him as the “monster” he was called by the media. “I deserved it all,” he said. But maybe there is still some good people like him can do. “More people like me should come forward, people like me who went through this experience,” he said. “Maybe if people hear the consequences ... maybe they’ll think twice about drinking and driving.” While Leclerc accepts full responsibility for his mistake — the rest of us also need to take more responsibility for keeping drunk drivers off the road. Party hosts should call cabs for guests too drunk to drive, restaurant and bar owners should do the same. Everybody has a stake in this struggle to make our highways safe. “People have to start looking after each other more,” Leclerc said.

A little prevention leads to healthy trees and shrubs D ormant spraying is one of the most important winter tasks to keep most of our deciduous trees and shrubs clean. Moss, algae, fungus, overwintering insects and disease will all take their toll during the growing season unless we take some action now. Done correctly, dormant spraying is one of the easiest and most effective sprayings you can do for your trees and shrubs. It is mostly organic, very low in toxicity and safe for the environment. These preventive sprays control overwintering insects, disease and fungus which create so many problems. At this time of year when there are no leaves on deciduous plants, the job is quick and easy to do. You may even wish to prune first to reduce the number of branches that need spraying. My greatest concern, however, is that in spite of good intentions, most dormant spraying is not done very well and as a result, is a wasted effort. It is very important to use a pressure sprayer because it is more effective at forcing the spray into the cracks and crevices of trees and shrubs where dormant

Done correctly, dormant spraying is one of the easiest and most effective sprayings you can do for your trees and shrubs, writes Brian Minter

insects and diseases overwinter. Pressure sprayers also allow you to use far less spray yet still do an effective job. In other words, the extra cost of a pressure sprayer will be recovered over and over again in both results and savings on the sprays needed. The timing of your spray application is important as well. Spraying before a rainfall or during freezing weather can often negate the results. You need at least eight hours of dry weather and above freezing temperatures after spraying for it to be effective. Usually spraying in the early morning, after the dew has dried off, is best. Try to choose a windless day to avoid any drifting. When you mix your sprays, read the instructions. Formulations are constantly changing for one reason or

another, so always read the labels on the bottles. It is also a good idea to add some warm water to the sprayer before adding the spray. Mix well, then add the balance of the water to make up the correct proportion. By the way, more is not better. Use the exact measurements recommended on the label. When you have questions, ask the folks at your local garden shop. In BC, anyone who sells registered pest control products must have a provincial pesticide dispenser certificate. To get that certificate, they must continually write exams to keep up to date, and they can answer basic questions about home garden pesticide use. When you spray your trees, how much spray do you apply? Some folks really dose their trees, while others just squirt a bit here and there. The proper

method is to use as fine a mist as possible and to spray the bark until the spray begins to run down. It is called “spray to run off”. Keep the sprayer moving all the time, so all the bark is covered evenly. Concentrate particularly on areas where there are cracks or crevices as that is where the potential problems will be. If needed, use a ladder to get close to the branches. Don’t stand back ten feet and set the sprayer to a coarse stream and expect it to do the job. One dormant spraying will help, but spraying two or three times is better. It is like getting algae off a retaining wall. One quick scalding won’t do it. Three sprayings are necessary to do the job properly. Remember too: lime sulphur, oils and copper spray will stain white siding, so if you have

roses or other shrubs against your house, slip a piece of poly behind them before you spray. Although some labels neglect to mention it, maple trees do not like either dormant oil or lime sulphur, and avoid spraying lime sulphur on nut trees and viburnums, such as Snowball trees. Copper spray is a more effective control than lime sulphur for European canker and anthracnose, both having caused serious problems on apple trees. Peaches, nectarines and apricots always seem to suffer from peach leaf curl fungus and again, copper is one of the best controls. Just as we wash and polish our cars to keep them clean and to remove road salt, please remember that our deciduous trees and shrubs need similar care. Shiny, clear, disease-free bark is a big asset to any garden, and it is a great start on organic pest prevention and control. I know it’s the holiday season, but a little protection now will make a huge difference come spring. Happy New Year!

The Progress Canada’s trade with the U.S. will be improved and its security enhanced after a new border agreement was signed by leaders of the two nations, says Chilliwack MLA John Les. But the privacy rights of Canadians are being bargained away behind closed doors, charged Micheal Vonn, BC Civil Liberties Association policy director. She said the perimeter action plan “risks the security of travellers� based on the information that will be collected about them and used to decide if they should be placed on “no-fly lists� or otherwise denied the right to travel. “And there’s no process of redress or accountability� in the new plan, she said. Les said he is “pretty touchy� about privacy himself, but he believes those issues will be thoroughly reviewed as B.C. and Canadian privacy commissions become “fully engaged� to ensure the agreement “does not impinge on people’s privacy.� A joint set of pri-

vacy and protection principles to guide the plan is expected to be announced by May, 2012. Les is B.C.’s representative on the Pacific NorthWest Economic Region that has been working towards easing trade barriers between the two countries. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and U.S. President Barak Obama signed the ‘Beyond the Border’ plan on Dec. 8 to clamp down on terrorism while easing legitimate cross-border trade. The Canada/U.S. trade relationship is the largest in the world, totalling hundreds of billions of dollars, with each country being the largest trading partner of the other. But that trade slowed significantly after security was tightened at border crossings following the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York City in 2001. Essentially, the new plan sets up a shared security “perimeter� around both countries so that economic goods — and cross-border travellers — need to be screened only once to enter both countries. Les said border-

crossings in B.C. have become â&#x20AC;&#x153;more of a barrier than a borderâ&#x20AC;? since 9/11, and look more like parking lots full of trucks â&#x20AC;&#x153;loaded with parts or goods or equipment that should be on its way to being a productive part of the economy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Literally millions of jobs rely on trade across the border,â&#x20AC;? he said, such as B.C. manufacturers that supply parts for the aerospace industry in Washington State. But Vonn said the new plan will require Canadian authorities to share all kinds of information about individuals with U.S. security officials, who have already demonstrated the arbitrariness of their decisions on who poses a threat to the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any Canadian who believes with this agreement that Obama will be adopting Canadian no-fly lists is clearly not paying attention,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be adopting U.S. standards on just about everything related to security matters.â&#x20AC;? She said the Canadian government has â&#x20AC;&#x153;no rightâ&#x20AC;? to bargain away the rights of its citizens in exchange for trade benefits, in a process thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;shrouded by secrecy.â&#x20AC;? The BCCLA and other seven other organizations, including the Council of Canada, have called for â&#x20AC;&#x153;extended public and parliamentary debateâ&#x20AC;? before the plan is implemented. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

The B.C. government boasts Canada’s lowest income tax rates on earnings up to $113,000 a year, but other deductions from take-home pay are going up again in the new year. The latest in a series of Medical Services Plan premium increases takes effect Jan. 1. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation calculates that the increase means a family with children will see their monthly MSP bill rise from $121 to $128, or $84 a year extra. MSP premiums have gone up 18.5 per cent since 2009. “Ver y few politicians and public sector employees pay the MSP tax, so they don’t understand the big deal,” said Jordan Bateman, the federation’s B.C. director. “But entrepreneurs, small business owners, middle class families and even those private sector employees lucky enough to have an employer pick

up their MSP tab, know what a bite this is out of their pockets.” The federation also notes that federal Employment Insurance and Canada Pension Plan premiums are set to rise by $306 for the average employee in 2012. Half of that is paid by the employee. Other everyday costs are also going up for B.C. residents. BC Hydro rates were pared back in a spending review ordered by Energy Minister Rich Coleman. An interim eight per cent increase took effect in the spring of 2011, but BC Hydro has committed to rate increases of 3.9 per cent in 2012 and 2013. The coming year will also see the last legislated increase in B.C.’s carbon tax on fossil fuels. As of July 1, 2012 the carbon tax on a litre of gasoline rises from 5.56 cents to 6.67, with similar increases on diesel, natural gas and other fuels used by consumers and industry.

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Not everyone happy with GWG football Eric J. Welsh, The Progress The second most significant sports story of 2011 was the introduction of a football program at G.W. Graham middle-secondar y school. The announcement was made in November, heralding the return of football to Chilliwack for the first time since the 1970s. The school plans to launch with a junior program in 2012 followed by a senior program in 2013, and G.W. Graham principal Diego Testa and athletic director Jake Mouritzen were understandably thrilled. No other sport involves as large a percentage of students as football, and no other sport has quite the cache of high school football. But G.W. Graham’s announcement did make some people nervous, most notably the folks at Chilliwack Minor Football. If the school gets football running at the same level as their other athletic programs, football has the potential to drain talent from CMFA. Minor football has built a top-notch organization that is large in membership and has produced winners at both the midget and bantam levels. “From our perspective, we’d prefer if there was no high school football because then there would be no competition for players,” said CMFA president Wayne Bjorge. “But it’s going to happen whether you want it or not, so now we’re just trying to

minimize the impact on CMFA.” Bjorge expects many of the G.W. Graham players will want to play high school and community football, and CMFA is fine with that. “By definition, community football is inclusive and we’ll take anyone who wants to play football,” he said. “High school is more insular in that they can’t take players from other schools, and they’re not allowed to recruit from other schools.” There are tons of communities throughout British Columbia where high school and community football seem to co-exist peacefully. Two places have mutually beneficial arrangements. South Delta runs community football up to bantam before sending the players on to high school, with the agreement that there will be no overlap. New Westminster community football runs up to junior bantam before yielding the players to high school ball. When high school football came to Mission secondar y school, Bjorge said there was a huge impact on Mission’s minor football. But that’s a place with a small population. Chilliwack is much bigger, and Bjorge hopes that works in CMFA’s favour. “This might actually work to our benefit because football will be hyped and it will be in the news more,” he reasoned. “We will take advantage of that, and do more advertising to let people know

that football’s available, and not just at G.W. Graham.” The tension between GWG and CMFA was immediately apparent when CMFA adopted a rule preventing coaches at the bantam and midget levels from coaching at GWG. That rule was brought in to address recruiting issues and the possibility that a high school coach might work from within community foot-

ball to poach players. CMFA may eventually have to consider that rule, with a handful of coaches reacting poorly to the one-or-the-other choice. When G.W. Graham announced their coaching staff, it included nine men who’ve been involved in the CMFA coaching ranks. Head coach Laurie Smith coached the CMFA peewee Giants to a provincial title in 2010

Whatever Wierks: Chilliwack sisters lend intensity to Cascades Another major sports story in 2011 was the impact of two local girls on the fortunes of the University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball team. When the Wierks sisters, both Chilliwack secondary school grads, were reunited at UFV, the Cascades began their ascent into elite status. As the new year begins, the team sits atop the Canada West CIS standings, with the potential to achieve a great deal more.

Dan Kinvig, Black Press When University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball coach Al Tuchscherer wants to

boost the level of intensity at practice, he has a simple solution. He puts Nicole and Sarah Wierks on opposite teams. Frequently, sparks fly between the siblings, who comprise the Cascades’ starting frontcourt. It’s not the product of ill will – it’s just that when you’ve got two players who are as gritty as sandpaper, it tends to create a bit of friction. “They’re always out to sort of one-up each other,” Tuchscherer said with a chuckle. “Sometimes it gets physical, sometimes they chirp at each other a little bit. But it’s all good. It’s never from the wrong place.

“I’ve never had that dynamic before on a team, so it’s interesting, for sure.” The Wierks sisters say they come by their competitive streak honestly. If their parents, Dennis and Debbie Wierks of Chilliwack, happen to be watching one of their games online, they’re liable to yell at the computer screen if a controversial call goes the wrong way. For the girls, that intense mentality means they’re usually leading the Cascades in bruises and floor burns. “We just have a need to be wherever the ball is,” Sarah explained. “If the ball’s on the ground, we’re going after it. We fall so much.”

“We don’t fall,” Nicole interjects, correcting her sister. “We dive for the ball. There’s a big difference!” Nicole, age 20, is the older of the two. In her third year with the Cascades, the 5’10” power forward is staging a breakout campaign – she leads the team in scoring at 13.3 points per game, and she’s second to Sarah in rebounding, hauling down an average of 7.0 boards. Tuchscherer appreciates Nicole as much for her defensive ability as her scoring. “She’s absolutely a lockdown defender,” he said. “I can have Nicole defend anyone in Canada West, whether that’s Diane Schuetze from Thompson Rivers, a big 6’3” post, or Debbie Yeboah from UVic, who’s arguably the quickest point guard in the conference.” Nicole’s success is all the more impressive considering she’s playing without the benefit of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her left knee. She’s torn her ACL twice – once during her Grade 11 year at Chilliwack Secondary, and again prior to her rookie year at UFV. Rather than undergo reconstructive surgery, she’s elected to simply wear a knee brace.

“Tearing it again isn’t really a risk I want to take at this point,” she explained. “If I feel I need to get it done after basketball’s over, I’ll do that. “It gets stiff and sore sometimes, but that’s to be expected – it would get stiff and sore anyway.” Sarah, a 19-year-old sophomore centre who stands 6’1”, followed her sister to the Abbotsford campus last fall, and was an instant sensation.

She earned Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) all-rookie honours after averaging 10.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. This season, she’s posting averages of 10.0 points and 9.5 boards. The latter total is second-best in Canada West. Last season, the Wierks sisters helped the Cascades to an opening-round playoff upset of the Winnipeg Wesmen, and berths to the Canada West Final Four and the CIS East Regional. This fall, the UFV women were saddled with some lofty expectations, as they were ranked No. 9 in the preseason. They stumbled out of the gate, suffering a sweep on the road at Thompson Rivers to open the regular season. But they’ve righted

themselves recently – on Nov. 26, they upset the No. 5-ranked Alberta Pandas 68-67, and they took a 5-3 conference record into the Christmas break. The Cascades will be looking to build on that when they return to action next week. They travel to Windsor, Ont. for an exhibition tournament hosted by the defending CIS national champion Windsor Lancers, Dec. 28-30. Nicole Wierks said that performing well in those games would set a positive tone for the second half of the season. “We’re really going to need to step it up,” she noted. “We’re really close as a team. We don’t just play for ourselves – we love our coach, and we play for him and for our teammates. We’ve just got to find a way to win.”

Ultimate win for Warren Chilliwack’s Cassia Warren turned ultimate into an adventure in 2011, making her second straight to trip to nationals. Warren, who played scholastically for G.W. Graham middle-secondary school, was picked for the Fraser Valley East provincial team and travelled to Ontario for nationals. She did the same in the summer of 2010, making a trip to Quebec.

Her teams finished third both times. Fraser Valley West finished first at nationals, showcasing the deep roots the sport is laying down on the West coast. Ultimate is a fast paced game played with a flying disc, with teams trying to pass the disc to a teammate in the endzone. Get info online at www.canadianultimate. com/

• by phone: 604-702-5552

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, instead of always taking the advice of others when something important arises, trust your own instincts on what to do. You might be surprised how well it works. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, despite excitement about getting away somewhere, you have some reservations, too. It’s hard to leave responsibilities behind even when you deserve a break. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You tend to gravitate to leadership roles, Sagittarius. That puts a lot of pressure on you at all times. Maybe this week you will be satisfied with standing on the sidelines. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, there’s a lot to accomplish, but little distractions seem to crop up at every turn. Diverting your energy to each of these issues is not the way to go. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 It’s time you made a big change, Aquarius. Think about stepping out of your comfort zone and the results may be surprising. Or, a big adventure could be in store. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Unless you try something, Pisces, you won’t know if you like it. Something different could be just what you need this week.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Take a rest from pouring over the books, Taurus. Although your finances are a bit shaky, you have gotten things in order, so take a short hiatus. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, it is hard to keep a secret, especially when you could be the bearer of really good news. Hold out just a little longer, and then you’ll have your chance.

✞ Obituaries

BREWKA Felicitas Maria

(Nov. 27, 1923 - Dec. 23, 2011)

On Dec. 23, 2011, Felicity once more left her family for a long journey to follow her husband to an BREWKA unknown destination. Born in Oppeln, Germany, the second of five Schwientek children, her life plans and schooling were cruelly cut short by the war. Despite the war, she was courted by and married her classmate Kurt on March 10, 1945 in Berlin. Her sad lament was that they were bombed after the ceremony including the photographer’s residence and she had no wedding pictures whatsoever. Her husband’s courage and creativity kept their families alive and his work with the allies enabled access to the precious travel visas to Canada. He left first to Uranium City and struggled to learn the language and find a place for his family. In 1953, Felicitas had all her papers to emigrate to Canada. She packed up her three children (all under six years of age) a maiden aunt and boarded the “Fairsea” in May of 1953 to begin a very long strenuous journey. The “Fairsea” did not live up to its name as high winds and heavy seas sent one of her children over the railing and was luckily grabbed by a fellow passenger just in time. The stories were many. Veronika, the cutest three-year-old, was sent to the kitchen to ask for precious lemons. Embarking at Montreal, the nightmare continued as with no English, she needed to get to the train station for Edmonton. Arriving in Edmonton many days later, a weary Felicitas disembarked to find Kurt not there! They worked together at Canadian Chemical, bought a farm, raised cattle and chickens, and when the farmhouse burned to the ground, they moved to Westlock and operated a Super A grocery store. Becoming restless, Kurt went back to the oil industry in Fort MacMurray and from there they traveled the world from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, built a house in Courtney, BC and retired in Palm Springs, moving back to Harrison Hot Springs. An active and courageous woman, she volunteered wherever she went and received much recognition for her efforts. She will be sorely missed by her family, daughters Silvia (Henry) and Veronika; and sons: Michael (Christine), Dirk (Sharon), Harold (Angela); 12 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She is predeceased by her husband Kurt (2010) and brother Klaus Schwientek. We will all miss her at family card games, tile rummy and her special version of Bingo. A funeral mass was held Thursday, Dec. 29, 2011 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Chilliwack, BC. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Chilliwack Hospital Emergency Room Fund.

Thank you to Eden’s Angels who took such great care of Alan for the last three years, and who adopted me and kept me fed and with a lot of hugs and kisses. I love them all dearly. No service by request and if you should wish a donation in Alan’s name, it may be made to the Alzheimer Society of BC, 9291 Corbould St, Chilliwack, BC V2P 6G7.

DYCK Kathleen Helen

Kathleen Helen Dyck (nee Heppner) passed away on December 8, 2011. Kathleen DYCK was born in Melba Manitoba on September 19, 1923, the daughter of Anthony and Katherina Heppner. At the age of 19, Kathleen married Harold Dyck and were together until his passing in 2004. For the most of the last 43 three years they shared a home on Chilliwack Mountain, watching the sunsets cast on the Fraser River. Kathleen was a woman of immense love for Jesus and a faith which grew stronger in times of hardship.The other great love of her life was her husband whom she eagerly anticipated seeing again. Kathleen is survived by her daughter Eileen Wiens; son Russel (Ingrid) Dyck; grandchildren: Brad (Niki) Wiens, Carl (Gwenn) Russel, Karen (Shawn) Unger; and greatgrandchildren, Jessica, Mark, Kyra, Wyatt, Kaitlyn, Jocelyn and Curtis; and her sister Rosella (Vic) Schultz. We all miss her strength and love.

Memorial Service to be held at Chilliwack Central Community Church at 2:00 on January 7, 2012. “Already I have crossed the river headed for a new and land, armed only with my courage and scars.”

UNRUH Jack Benjamin

Jack passed away peacefully on Thursday Dec. 22, 2011 at Glenwood Care Home in Agassiz. He has UNRUH gone home to be with the Lord. He was born in Russia, April 10, 1920, and at age 7 moved to Canada with his parents. They farmed in Indian Head Saskatchewan until 1935, then moved to St. Rose Manitoba and continued farming. It was here that he was baptized in the Baptist Church. He moved to Chilliwack, B.C. in 1947 where he became a member of the Broadway Church, where he was involved in taking care of he sound system for many years. As a child he always tinkered with electronics. After his last year of school (grade 8) he completed a few mail order electronic courses. This prepared him for his career in electronics. He started working for Oscar Cheeks in Chilliwack as an electronics repairman. He met Mary Pauls in December 1949. She had just graduated from St. Pauls Hospital as a registered nurse and had started a new job at the Chilliwack General Hospital. They dated and were married on August 6, 1950. By 1954 the couple had opened their own business, Unruh’s Electronics. Mary chose to quit nursing to help with the business right from the start. Business was challenging and many evenings he was doing service calls to finish the days work. On many nights the kids went on these service calls together. He sold the business to his daughter Shirley in 1981. Jack loved playing golf at Kinkora Golf Course with his buddies. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed the countless hours trolling Loon Lake and catching the limit for the day. Jack and Mary loved traveling the world with their many friends. Family was very important to Jack. He was a good father and adored his grandchildren. He is survived by his wife Mary of 61 years of marriage, his children Les (Kory) Unruh; Shirley (Rich Mole) Unruh: Pat (Bruce) Anderson; Gerald (Rozlyn) Unruh; Lynda (Bob) MacInnis; grandchildren Mark, Michel, Jasmine, Beth, Jennifer, Matthew, Kara, Benjamin, Natasha, Chad and Megan; four great-grandchildren; and sister Mary. He was predeceased by his parents, Benjamin and Meta Unruh; brothers Henry, John and his sisters Nettie and Sarah. A special thank you goes out to Dr. MacIntosh and the wonderful caring staff at Glenwood Care Home. A memorial service will be held at Chilliwack Broadway Church, Thursday December 29, 2011. If desired, donations may be made to MCC.
