Vancouver may lose its status as ‘biggest city’ Lower land prices in cities like Chilliwack attributed to growth outside Metro Van Jeff Nagel Black Press Port Moody and Surrey were the fastest growing cities in Metro Vancouver in the 2011 Census, spurring the region’s population to grow rapidly. Double-digit growth was also recorded in Burnaby, Langley Township, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, according to data released Wednesday. Outside Metro Vancouver, growth in cities like Chilliwack hit double digits as well. Surrey’s population grew 18.6 per cent to 468,251, an increase of more than 73,000 since the previous count in 2006. The City of Vancouver gained about 25,000 residents, or 4.4 per cent over the five-year period, to 603,502. Port Moody climbed 19.9 per cent to 32,975. The nearly 20-per-cent gain happened despite Port Moody city council’s decision a few years ago to restrict further development until the Evergreen Line SkyTrain extension is built. Burnaby added 10.1 per cent to reach a population of 223,218 and is the Lower Mainland’s third-largest city after Vancouver and Surrey. Richmond added 9.2 per cent more people to reach 190,473. Surrey accounted for one-quarter of the provincial gain and 37 per cent of Metro Vancouver’s. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts predicted her city is on track to pass Vancouver’s population in as little as 10 years. Although Surrey gained nearly 50,000 residents relative to Vancouver, not everyone is convinced it will be B.C.’s biggest city any time soon. Urban Futures demographer Ryan Berlin said Surrey would pass Vancouver in about 15 years if the pace of the last five continues. Continued: CHILLIWACK/ p11

As population grows, Chilliwack struggles to keep ‘small-town flavour’ Robert Freeman The Progress Chilliwack had one of the largest gains in population among B.C. cities between 2006 and 2011, jumping 12.6 per cent to 77,936, according to a recent Statistics Canada report. Squamish had the largest population gain in the province with 14.6 per cent. “It’s not surprising,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said, about Chilliwack’s reported growth. And the city has been preparing for such a population

increase, she said, using a larger figure of 82,000 as a planning target. “We believe, as do most municipalities, that growth needs to pay for itself,” Gaetz said. Development cost charges (DCCs) are used to pay for new roads, sewers and water services as the city grows to take the burden off taxpayers. “We’re growing not only by attracting more people here, but we’re also growing from within,” Gaetz pointed out. More than 15,000 children of Fraser Valley families are

attending university classes at UFV, staying home instead of moving out of the area. “That’s a new trend, something Sharon Gaetz we haven’t s e e n before,” Gaetz said. Only 13 per cent of the city’s population leaves the community to work or to shop, according to a regional transit study.

The low cost of housing, the low cost of living, the proximity to natural attractions like the mountains and Cultus Lake, plus the lure of Chilliwack’s “small-town flavor” are all attracting new residents here, the mayor said. How to keep that small-town feel - “that’s going to be our challenge as we get bigger,” Gaetz said. Planning is the key, and the city is currently working on its official community plan, which was last updated 12 years ago in 1998. Continued: PLANNING/ p11

Liberal candidate denies party is ‘running scared’ Robert Freeman The Progress There appears to be a fullcourt press by the BC Liberals in Chilliwack-Hope ever since officially declaring a byelection candidate Saturday.

Laurie Throness

A gaggle of BC Liberal cabinet ministers, including Rich Coleman, Naomi Yamamota, Mary Polak and Ida Chong attended the nomination meeting — and they’ve been popping up at recent funding announcements and at other events in the riding, including the opening of a FrontCounter BC office this week in Chilliwack. “We’re not running scared,” BC Liberal candidate Laurie Throness said Wednesday, despite comments to that effect made by his byelection opponents. NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony said she doesn’t think the riding would have seen quite so many cabi-

net ministers making quite so many funding announcements “if they weren’t running scared.” “The promises are rolling in and the cabinet ministers are sticking close,” she said. “It sounds like they’re really concerned about this seat, and they’re going to do anything to try and win it.” “Obviously they’re running scared,” said John Martin the BC Conservative candidate. The former newspaper columnist took a jaundiced view of the recent funding, some of which was already in the budget, he said. “Blacktop politics have always been a part of B.C.’s political lega-

cy,” Martin said. Government funding announcements made before an election “might have worked in the past,” he added, “but I think people see through that now.” “It’s probably the crassest part (of the legacy) using the public treasury to campaign with,” he said. But Throness said it is “routine” for cabinet ministers to be touring the province making funding announcements. “This is all part of a larger picture,” he said, about the funding announced in Chilliwack-Hope. “It’s government getting things done. It’s business as usual.”

Throness also pointed out that funding for improved access to emergency care was announced in 36 communities, not just in Hope for the Fraser Canyon hospital. The $16,060 in “age-friendly grants” for seniors in the Fraser Valley Regional District is also lower than the $20,000 announced in most of the 52 communities that received them, he said. And a $6-million highway resurfacing announcement fell short of the $14-million announced in Vernon, he said. “This is just the on-going business of government,” he said. “I’m proud of what the government is doing.”

Fraser Health penalized for long surgery waits Incentive target missed for knee, cataract patients; related story p.4 Jeff Nagel Black Press Fraser Health failed to meet provincially mandated targets to rein in surgery wait times in 2010-11 and as a result lost out on an extra $2.6 million in incentive funding that’s dangled by the government each year as a carrot to improve. “Although we increased surgery volumes about three per cent, we were unable to shorten the wait times as much as we needed to meet the target,” health authority spokesman David Plug said. The payments through the health ministry’s patientfocused funding branch rewards health authorities that meet targets to keep waits down and punishes them if they don’t – the money instead goes to reduce the province’s deficit. The rules require no more than 10 per cent of patients wait longer than 26 weeks for knee and hip surgery and 16 weeks for cataract surgery in order for each authority to qualify for activity-based funding in each of those categories. But 19 per cent of patients waited longer than 26 weeks for a knee replacement in the Fraser Health region in the 2010 fiscal year, so the authority lost out on nearly $1.8 million, Plug said. And the authority was docked another $834,000 because 39 per cent of cataract patients waited longer than 16 weeks. Continued: FHA/ p5

Surgery delays have cost Fraser Health $2.6 million in penalties.

Patti MacAhonic, executive director with the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce, presents a proposal to the mayor and council for the city to adopt a mobile business licensing concept. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Chilliwack Chamber exec says mobile business licence a ‘win-win’ Robert Freeman The Progress Chilliwack is looking at joining an inter-municipal business licence program with five other Fraser Valley communities. The licence would save local businesses the cost and aggravation of buying several licences in order to operate in each of the participating municipalities. And in the Okanagan, where a pilot program has been underway since 2008, each of the 19 municipal partners has reported increased revenues — and increased

compliance. “It’s been a win-win everywhere,” Patti MacAhonic, Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce executive director, said after making a formal presentation to city council Tuesday. She said residents also benefit from the “mobile licence” because they can call on businesses outside the community for services that may not be available locally. Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz said the mobile licence program is actually “harmonizing” what is already happening as more businesses

are doing business in several jurisdictions. The mayor said one point of concern is that some businesses may not be aware of variations in bylaw regulations between municipalities. For instance, landscapers may not be aware that some pesticides are banned in certain jurisdictions, but not in others, she said. MacAhonic agreed there’s going to be some work needed in that regard. But a meeting of all five prospective municipal partners in the Fraser Valley will be held soon in Langley, where such issues will be

discussed, she said. “Communication – that’s what it’s all about,” she said. The five prospective partners are Abbotsford, Langley, Mission, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. Chilliwack councillors approved a motion to send the Chamber’s presentation to staff for further study. In the Okanagan region, municipal partners in the pilot program there saw a total $205,251 increase in revenues from the sale of business licences in 2008. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Admitting its latest push to cut hospital congestion is not yet working, Fraser Health has turned to a panel of outside experts for advice on what more it can do. The six-member panel – which includes three consultants with expertise in health care, a facilitator and representatives from both Fraser Health and the health ministry – is to table recommendations by the end of March. Fraser CEO Dr. Nigel Murray said the advisers will perform an independent and objective examination of the region’s efforts to reduce congestion and “identify any ways we can continue to make improvements.� They are to focus on the heavily congested Royal Columbian and Surrey Memorial hospitals, but their advice may apply across the region. Murray said turning to outside advisers shouldn’t be viewed as an indictment of the authority’s staff or internal vision, but added he wants to leave no stone

unturned in seeking solutions. “Our hospital network is at full capacity on a regular basis,� he said. A multi-pronged strategy was rolled out last fall to clear hospital beds faster, reduce lengths of stay, and discharge more elderly patients to home care rather than residential care homes. A year before that, the province was trumpeting its shift to a pay-for-performance funding model to foster hospital innovation and efficiency. But it’s hard to detect any improvement in the face of relentlessly rising demand. Emergency visits are up 7.3 per cent so far this year and patient days spent in hospitals in the region are up five per cent. Surrey Memorial and Royal Columbian hospitals are “at least or at times even more congested this year than last year,� according to the terms of reference handed to the expert panel. Fraser Health doesn’t expect the panel to simply tell the province more money and beds are needed, said Barbara Korabec, Fraser Health’s

vice-president of clinical operations. “Are there strategies other than just building new beds that we have not maximized?� Korabec said she’s concerned hospital volume is up so much even without a typical outbreak of seasonal flu yet. Murray said the Home is Best initiative launched last year to encourage home support as an alternative to residential care promises to ease demand for care home beds, helping reduce the numbers of patients staying unnecessarily in hospital. “We are seeing thousands more people accessing home support services,� he said. Home support hours are up nearly eight per cent this year, Murray said, and fewer patients are being admitted to residential care that have never tried the option of home support. The expert panel is also expected to consider Fraser’s demographic challenges. The region already has the largest and fastest-growing population in the province, as well as the largest proportion of both seniors and the young. That’s compounded by the fact Fraser Health has fewer family doctors and specialists than its size warrants, she said. Fraser Health estimates it will gain another 327,000 residents, or 20 per cent more, by 2020. “That’s roughly like adding an entire Abbotsford and a Langley to the region’s existing population,� Murray said. The population of seniors over age 65 is forecast to balloon 50 per cent by 2020 to more than 100,000. Dr. Tim Latham, a cardiac surgeon at Royal Columbian, welcomed the appointment of the panel and said he hopes the provincial representative ensures Victoria gets a clear picture of what’s needed. “The biggest problem is capacity,� he said. “You can’t pour two litres of water into a one-litre container.� Dr. Sheldon Glazer, an ER doctor at Royal Columbian and Eagle Ridge hospitals, said it shouldn’t take a panel of experts to conclude that the lack of inpatient beds

is the key problem. “At any one time in Fraser Health there are the equivalent of two hospitals full of patients being placed in hallways in emergency rooms,� he said. Glazer said staff at RCH are intensely frustrated by the endless game of “musical beds� and some are leaving. Patients subjected to hallway medicine for too long suffer not just indignity and unrest, he added, but a higher risk of mortality. “Their risk of dying is doubled if they spend more than 12 hours in emergency before they go up to a ward,� Glazer said. “In our hospital, we have patients spending literally days and days in our emergency. Sometimes weeks.� Fraser’s latest service plan estimated 1,100 more hospital beds will be needed by 2020. Some beds are being built. A $512-million expansion at SMH will bring a new ER and critical care tower, including 150 beds. But Surrey Memorial remains crowded even after the region opened the nearby Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, which was intended to decongest SMH by taking over its day surgeries and many of its clinics and diagnostics. Fraser Health officials say they are working on a plan to expand Royal Columbian as well. And more preliminary planning is underway to consider the needs at Delta, Peace Arch, Burnaby and Eagle Ridge hospitals. But Glazer notes there’s no timetable for the the Royal Columbian expansion and the SMH project was announced “three different times� before work finally began. “I am not optimistic that things are going to change.� Fraser Health has to wait for the provincial government budget to be tabled to find out how much of a bump its $2.75-billion budget will get in the next budget year, which begins in April. The province had previously signalled the health authority will get an extra 4.1 per cent, but officials are waiting for confirmation.

Just in time for

FHA finishes second last FHA from p3 Statistics show 55 cataract patients in Fraser actually waited longer than a year for surgery, so the authority also failed in clearing a separate bar that no patients wait more than 12 months. On hip replacements, 11 per cent of patients waited more than 26 weeks – just missing the target – but Plug said the ministry agreed that was close enough and credited the authority $1.6 million. He said the incentive system encourages the region to make its booking and surgery system more efficient, perform more procedures and reduce waits. Fraser tries not to double book the same patient or keep patients on wait lists whose conditions have changed and are no longer ready for surgery. “That helps us have a more accurate list and wait times can come closer to the target,” Plug said. The region also strives to make sure operating rooms have enough capacity to handle scheduled cases and to make sure hip and knee replacements have time reserved. Burnaby Hospital has emerged as a specialty centre for those surgeries, Plug said, and patients are now sometimes being sent there to avoid longer waits elsewhere. It’s not yet clear if the region will

hit all three surgery targets this fiscal year, which ends at the end of March. “We’re within 50 or so people of making the hip target,” Plug said, adding Fraser is close to the targets on knee and cataract surgery as well. Fraser performed 2,400 hip replacements and 15,000 cataract surgeries last year. Fraser’s surgery wait statistics are considerably worse than in the Vancouver Coastal region, which serves Vancouver, Richmond and the North Shore. Just one per cent of Vancouver Coastal patients waited longer than 26 weeks for hip or knee surgeries and just four per cent waited longer than the target for cataracts. As a result, that region lost no money. No cataract patients in Vancouver Coastal waited longer than a year, nor did any on Vancouver Island or in the Interior. The Northern Health Authority was the only region that performed worse than Fraser, with more than a third of hip replacement patients waiting too long and nearly half of knee and cataract surgeries exceeding the target. Sixty-five cataract patients there waited longer than a year. The money at stake is not much compared to overall budgets. Fraser’s penalty last year was less than one-tenth of one percent of its $2.75-billion budget.

RCMP search for missing Asian man Chilliwack RCMP are asking the public to help locate a 67-year-old Asian man who went missing more than two weeks ago. Charles Jiu Ngi Kon was last seen on Jan. 26 buying a Greyhound bus ticket to Abbotsford at about 10 a.m. “He did not purchase any other tickets to go to another destination from Abbotsford,” RCMP Cpl.

Tammy Hollingsworth said. But she said Kon has no known friends or family in Abbotsford, and does not have a cellphone or a vehicle. He has been to Vancouver’s Chinatown on occasion, Hollingsworth said, but police do not have any information that he has been there since his disappearance.

“The RCMP is extremely concerned for his safety,” she said. Kon is described as 5’10” tall, weighing about 133 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information on Kon’s whereabouts is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS “as soon as possible,” Hollingsworth said.

The Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society Presents

National Ballet

Black Press A day after appointing nine new provincial court judges, the B.C. government has launched its latest review of the court system, trying to identify why the courts are slowing down despite falling crime and case rates over the past 20 years. Premier Christy Clark and Attorney General Shirley Bond announced the review Wednesday in Vancouver. They released an audit and discussion paper that show B.C.’s crime rate has declined faster than any Canadian province, to the point where 13,000 fewer new provincial criminal cases were heard in the past

year, compared to 10 years ago. Despite that, the B.C. court system has an estimated 2,000 cases that are in danger of being dismissed based on excessive delays, and there are regular reports of criminal charges being stayed due to delays. The government has appointed 23 judges in the last two years, and ramped up training for sheriffs and other court staff to partially restore budget cuts to the system in previous years. “If it was just about money, that would be a pretty simple answer,” Clark said. She added that one problem is that suspects now appear in court an average of six times before their trials

begin. Bond appointed lawyer Geoffrey Cowper, a former chair of the Legal Services Society, to make recommendations on changes by July. One issue to be studied is B.C.’s practice of having Crown prosecutors approve all charges, instead of giving police that authority as is done in other provinces. NDP leader Adrian Dix and justice critic Leonard Krog blasted the announcement as the latest in a long series of reviews, this

one designed to push the “crisis” in the courts beyond the 2013 provincial election. Dix warned that the province has not yet taken into account the impact of a federal crime crackdown, with mandatory minimum jail terms for offences such as growing a half a dozen marijuana plants. Those sentences will not only increase jail population in B.C., they will also prompt more accused people to fight charges in court rather than plead guilty, he said.

The announcement included a shuffle of responsibilities that entrenches the merger of Bond’s attorney general and public safety ministries to a single Justice and Attorney General ministry. Responsibility for the Public Sector Employers Council and ICBC goes from public safety to finance, and responsibility for liquor and gambling policy is transferred to Energy and Mines Minister Rich Coleman.

Berlin said the most interesting population changes in the Lower Mainland were the strong gains posted by Squamish (14.8 per cent) and Chilliwack (12.6 per cent). The two outlying cities are about a 40-minute drive away from Metro Vancouver and offer much lower land prices than Vancouver, he said. “I think that’s why they experienced pretty significant growth – above what we experienced provincially and here in the Lower Mainland,” he said. “Instead of raising your kids in an apartment in Vancouver, maybe you choose a two-bedroom house, yard, swing set, Mr. Turtle pool – that kind of thing.” Cities that grew at the slowest rates – like Delta – did so generally because they didn’t approve construction of very much new housing, Berlin said. Metro Vancouver’s strong growth overall is good, Berlin said, in terms of economic growth and the ability to pay for things like health care and schools. But it has its downside. “It puts pressure on land values, it puts pressure on our transportation network.” Immigration, much of it from Asia, remains the main driver of population

R AESIDE

OAS reforms needed A single sentence from Prime Minister Stephen Harper during a speech in Davos, Switzerland has this country buzzing about the future of Canada’s old age security. One suggested change to OAS could include increasing the age of entitlement from 65 to 67, a move every other G8 country has already implemented in an effort to provide long-term sustainability for the pension. OAS is money that every retired Canadian 65 years or older can claim as a retirement supplement. As the baby boomers start squeezing through traditionally narrow pension channels, changes are needed to accommodate all of them. Today, the taxes of four employed Canadians supports each retired Canadian through OAS. In the coming years, that ratio will drop from 4:1 to 2:1. In monetary terms, costs for the program are expected to rise 32 per cent over the next five years to $48.3 billion. By 2030, OAS will cost $108 billion. Based on demographics alone,

The Chilliwack

OAS as it stands now simply won’t survive. Seniors advocate groups were quick to jump on Harper’s idea, shunning it as irresponsible. But changes would be phased in and aren’t likely to affect anybody nearing retirement now, and certainly not people already collecting OAS. If any group should be nervous, it’s working Canadians in their 30s, 40s or 50s who will be stifled from advancing because people are working longer, and who will be forced to pay more to support the bulging retirees ahead of them. By making changes to OAS, at least there is hope there will be a few pennies left for future generations. The baby boomers are the only generation in history to live better than both their parents and their offspring. Opposing reforms that will ensure the OAS program’s future is simply a characteristic forged from a generation that has had it better than everyone else. ~ Black Press

BC V IEWS

British Columbia joins the LNG gold rush VICTORIA – The first thing to understand about the race to liquefied natural gas exports is how far back in the pack B.C. is starting. Canada has issued its first two export licenses for LNG export projects near Kitimat, to sell the product of the vast Horn River and Montney shale gas deposits in northeastern B.C. One LNG plant has begun construction, the second is approved to proceed and a third is also proposed for the same region. Unlike the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline proposal, plants and associated pipelines have actually received all the necessary permits from our constipated federal-provincial environmental process. Australia has approved six LNG projects in the last two years, with a combined construction cost of $180 billion. Reuters reports that their $34 billion Ichthys proj-

ect will vault Australia past the Middle Eastern kingdom of Qatar into first place among global LNG exporters, assuming it is built by 2017. Top producing countries are Qatar, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria and Algeria. The second thing B.C. taxpayers need to know is that there is no other practical choice here. Huge shale gas developments around Tom Nor th America FLETCHER have meant B.C.’s days of making a tidy sum selling gas to the U.S. are coming to an end. Natural gas replaced forest products some years ago as B.C.’s top commodity revenue stream, helping to keep the lights on in B.C. schools and hospitals. But the domestic price is down for the

long term and the U.S. has plenty of its own gas now. The third thing to know is that there is misinformation about shale gas and “fracking.” Shaky videos show someone touching a match to water that has had gas bubbled through it, to artificially promote the idea that hydraulic fracturing of shale deposits contaminates groundwater. This and some scientifically illiterate media reports are all it takes to get a protest movement going these days. The fact that a kilometre or more of solid rock separates B.C. shale deposits from surface water sources is seldom mentioned. The major public health risk from B.C.’s natural gas boom is the escape of sour gas, which contains poisonous, heavier-thanair hydrogen sulfide. That’s been a problem for B.C.’s conventional gas industry for decades. There are legitimate concerns

about water use and chemical discharge from shale fracturing, and the B.C. government has scrambled to upgrade its regulations on that as well as sour gas. Premier Christy Clark has run to the front of the LNG parade, trying to convey the notion that multi-billion-dollar investments made years ago by Chinese, Japanese, U.S. and Korean corporations are somehow the result of her “jobs plan.” NDP energy critic John Horgan insists that the B.C. Utilities Commission oversee all this, so the B.C. Liberals don’t subsidize these giant transnational energy companies with cheap electricity and stick BC Hydro ratepayers with the bill. According to Horgan, the BCUC should also have lawyered away over the smart meter program for God knows how long, as analog meters become obsolete

and Quebec and others modernize their electricity grids without hand-wringing or exploitation of imaginary health threats. This is not a good time to dither. An LNG terminal is proposed for Portland, Oregon and there will be others. LNG plants need lots of electricity, and the B.C. Liberal government wants to market B.C. LNG as the “cleanest” in the world because it’s processed with minimal burning of gas for power generation. Will foreign buyers care about B.C.’s LNG production methods? Are B.C.’s greenhouse gas reduction targets history? More on that in a future column. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

At Christmas we visited the Chilliwack Landing Leisure Centre and although they have a snack bar, the same line up of candy machines face the kids as they exit the pool. If we have a cultural obesity problem, if sugar is a major culprit in the problem, we should start by offering better snacks especially in our kids recreation centres!

Puzzle sale a success The Friends of the Library had a successful puzzle sale; over $3,500 was raised for our library’s projects. This result is due to the media who published our appeal for puzzles, to the donors who so generously responded, to the volunteers who spent hours sorting, sealing, pricing and to the hundreds of you who came to purchase the merchandise. To each and everyone a most sincere ”Thank you.” Enjoy and see you in 2013. Claire Bouchard, president Friends of the Library

it makes no difference. You’re just told that it’s being reviewed. Finally, someone will come across it in October and it may be approved in December. Sometimes they send a letter asking for “more information.” Often, the request is denied. As the article ends, de Jong is still sputtering what he hopes are positives that will detract from the issues at hand, pointing out that B.C. “provides more extensive drug coverage on many fronts.” What does he mean exactly and can he provide examples? It makes me feel so much better that Mr. de Jong vows, “We need to take a close look...” Sounds like the usual response from a government minister who has no solutions and won’t be taking a close look.

Chilliwack hospital praised for excellent care I was rushed to Chilliwack Hospital to the ER on Thursday Jan 26/11, then transferred to ICU and was in hospital for four days. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone in the ER and the ICU for what they did for me. I think that most people take these wonderful people for granted and most of the time all you hear about is negative feedback. I just wanted them to know that they are greatly appreciated.

This is untrue. Some prescription drugs are not covered because they have been removed from the “magic” list for one reason or another, most likely cut backs. Other medications that were once available only by prescriptions are now over-the-counter (OTC). Therefore, I have to pay for them. Certain medical supplies need to be individually approved. This means filling out the proper forms, getting a doctor’s prescription and letter (in which your doctor has to use the right words and jump through the proper hoops) and running here and there. Then everything is handed in to the local office and you wait. Some advise, don’t do this when summer is approaching because that request will sit on a desk for months. Asking about

use the “approved” drugs. For example, you’re a patient who is unable to tolerate a particular drug that’s covered, but can take a similar one that isn’t on the “magic” list. Well, you pay, take the one that makes you sick, or take nothing. The government puts a dollar limit on each prescription. If the total amount is more than what they will pay (due to higher dispensing fees or drug cost increases), the patient has to pay the difference. I am on a provincial disability. I have a number of health issues that need treatment. It annoys me when people think that all my medical needs are paid for by the government. In this article, the Minister of Health claims that people on social assistance “pay nothing out of pocket”.

Only meds on the magic list are paid for Re: “Scrimping on meds...” News, January 20, 2012 This article reveals something that I have been struggling with for about three years. Too many drugs and not enough money to buy them. I suspected that I wasn’t the only one who skips doses and puts off buying more when the funds are low or nonexistent. Actually, I’m surprised that the percentages aren’t higher. In reality, the number of people living with chronic, untreated health problems is going to grow. What I take issue with, however, are the comments by Health Minister Mike de Jong. “Prescription drug costs are entirely covered with no deductible for more than 270,000 low-income patients in B.C.,” he asserts. Sounds impressive. As long as those patients

Next to that was a pop machine offering two juices out of a total of perhaps 20 or 40 options.

News NDP questions government’s prison privatization By Tom Fletcher

Cottonwood Mall - 45585 Luckakuck Way, Chilliwack OPEN FEBRUARY 13TH

ph: 1.866.763.5550 ext 710 7 days per week • No Appointment Required

Black Press The B.C. government is preparing to build its second jail as a public-private partnership, an approach that the NDP’s

public safety critic says may increase the cost. Burnaby-Deer Lake MLA Kathy Corrigan said a new 360cell facility to be built south of Penticton will be an overdue addition to B.C.’s overcrowded

corrections system. But as with the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and the expansion of the Surrey pre-trial jail now under construction, she questions the move to private operators.

Family gets help from local businesses

Free time just got sweeter.

HELP from p6 Several local businesses have also got on board with the fundraiser. In Chilliwack, the liquor stores, Friendly Mike’s, Jolly Miller, Corky’s, Echo Room, and Greek Islands will be selling singles. Major League 2 has also donated $500 to the cause. “I can’t believe that Chilliwack has pulled together and made this bigger than I ever expected,” said Edwards, initially only aiming for $500. Any proceeds raised, above the cost of the flowers, go to LileeJean’s family. This isn’t the first fundraiser for the youngster. Lilee-Jean, daughter of Chelsey Whittle and Andrew Putt of Pardon My Striptease, made headlines in December when PMS knocked Nickelback out of the number one spot on iTunes with their song Pray (for LJ). The Chilliwack band challenged Nickelback to match funds raised by the sale of the song to support Children’s Hospital. Nickelback accepted and upped the ante – donating $50,000 to BC Children’s Hospital in Lilee-Jean’s name. For more information on the Valentine’s Day fundraiser, call 604-6141488, or email info@creativetouchweddingflowers, or visit the website www.creativetouchweddingflowers.com.

by the Osoyoos Indian Band, with completion by early 2016. Bond said a business plan is being prepared, and the project may be a publicprivate partnership or “P3.” The $90 million Surrey Pretrial expansion project was awarded in 2011 to a consortium led by Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P. and Forum Equity Partners Inc. The design-builder is PCL Constructors Westcoast Inc. The 30-year partnership agreement includes facility maintenance. The government has indicated that both the Surrey and Okanagan facilities will be operated and staffed by Corrections B.C. Corrigan notes that medical and food services are also being contracted out for Surrey, and she wants to see the business plan for the Okanagan jail. “I have real concerns about contracts that are 30 or 35 years, where they’re contracted out to a private partner, “ Corrigan said. “We know that the financing is more expensive, the operational contracts are inflexible, and you can’t get out of them.” Osoyoos Chief Clarence Louie said the band will gain revenue from a land-lease arrangement on the property along Highway 97, and both native and

o unto others as you would have them do unto you – but do it first. This is something that Faye Grant heard often from her father as she was growing up. Faye has never forgotten these words and has always tried to live by this Golden Rule, with a twist. “I have always tried to put others first. I like to do things and I like to help out whenever I can but I like to stay in the background. I’ve always been like that,” she said honestly. The middle of five children, Faye was born in the City of Nelson but by the time that she was seven, the family moved to the Maritimes. “Dad worked in the mining industry so we moved to New Brunswick for three years then we went to Ontario for another three years and ended up moving back to B.C. after that,” she said. The family settled in Britannia Beach, a community on the Sea-To-Sky highway on Howe Sound that was originally a residential area for the staff of the Britannia Mining and Smelting Company. “Dad had always worked underground but by the time that we came back out west, dad came back up to the surface and was in

charge of the machine shop,” she explained. Faye enjoyed school for its social aspects rather than for the academics. “As I grew older, I realized that I really should have placed more emphasis on the academics,” she noted with a chuckle. After graduating from Howe Sound Secondary School in Squamish, she went on to attend the Market Training Institute which prepared students for working in the grocery industry. “This was before the use of the cash registers and scanners that we use today.

She married, had a baby boy and things were moving along rather nicely until the Ana unthinkable hapMACEDO pened. Her husband took the baby out for a drive and both father and son were tragically killed in an auto accident. “I don’t know for sure but when the baby was fussy, driving around would calm him down. I think that my husband had taken him out to do just that but they never returned,” she said. After that, her life

went into a tailspin. “I went to live with some friends and they kept me on the straight and narrow. I was devastated but thanks to some good friends, I was eventually able to move on. You have to move on,” she said convincingly. One of the friends that she was staying with was working at Stewart Warner Sales, an automotive part sales company and Faye went to work for them as an inventory controller. “I then went to work in their accounts payable department and ended up staying for six years.” Faye eventually married Ken, whom she had met through work and the couple had two children; daughter Wendy and son Kelly.

ANA from p18 in her life and she encouraged them to be the best that they could be. Her daughter became an accomplished, competitive dancer and her son was heavily involved in soccer and baseball. “My kids were very involved in sports and we always had open communication. They were both active and engaged and they were good kids,” she said proudly. Amongst other things, Faye was involved with the Collingwood Community Centre and the Miss Vancouver Pageant for many years; something that she enjoyed immensely. Over the years, Faye has done a lot of sewing, especially when her daughter was in dance. “My daughter danced from the time that she was four until she was in her 20s. One year, I made 13 costumes for an endof-the-year show,” she chuckled. She also taught herself to knit and crochet by using “How To” books and today makes beautifully striking, yet warm scarves. Faye has always enjoyed being busy and as busy as she was raising her children, she still found time to take on a job with the Vancouver School Board. For 20 years, she worked as both a Supervision Aid as well as a teacher’s aid and at night; she worked at a data processing centre as a data entry clerk. “On the weekends, I would also do respite care for children with developmental disabilities.” Two years ago, after 35 years of living in Vancouver, Faye and Ken moved to Chilliwack. “We love to camp in the summer; that’s our thing. We spent many years coming to Chilliwack to take in the RV Show at Heritage Park and we loved the community. We really liked the quietness of Chilliwack, so we decided to move,” she said. She’s enjoying life and the less hectic pace that our community has to offer but continues to work with children in a school setting when the opportunity arises as well as supporting her grandchildren, whom she loves dearly. Life just doesn’t get better than that.

Community Tutors still needed to help adults struggling with literacy Tutor training in Agassiz has started, and there is still room for more people to join. Tutors volunteer their time within the community

to adults needing help with literacy and numeracy. The training was supposed to be held as day long weekend sessions, but the timing was changed recently,

said coordinator Debbie Lamberger. The first few training sessions have already passed, and run Monday and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m.

to 8:30 p.m. until February 6. Sessions are held in the boardroom at the AgassizHar rison Community Services, along with a light dinner.

For more information on becoming a tutor, or if you are an adult needing help with literacy, phone Lamberger at 604-796-2585.

The $5 fee for passengers flying within B.C. or to the Yukon remains unchanged. The authority said the AIF, which was last increased in 2004, will remain among the lowest in Canada, with many other major airports collecting $25. Berg outlined a 10-year strategy to improve YVR’s amenities and improve the airport’s competitiveness. He said the aim is to reduce the time for passengers to transit

Air travellers will pay an extra $5 to fly out of B.C. through Vancouver International Airport starting May 1. The planned jump in the Airport Improvement Fee (AIF) from $15 to $20 is to fund $1.8 billion in improvements to the airport. “YVR is facing increasing competition from other airports,” Vancouver Airport Authority president Larry Berg said in announcing the increase. “Both travellers and airlines have choices.”

Community UFV culinary arts students round out their repertoire with Rivers Dining Room UFV Culinary Arts students are broadening their cooking repertoire with a new initiative at UFV. They’ve already mastered lunch-time fare; now they’re looking to hone their fine dining skills. Next week, Rivers Dining Room will be opening its doors to the public for dinner on Tuesday and Wednesday nights through to May. Located at UFV’s Trades and Technology Centre at the Canada Education Park in Chilliwack, 5579 Tyson Rd, the restaurant is launching on Tuesday, Feb. 14 — Valentine’s Day. All of the meals will be prepared by UFV’s Culinary Arts cooks-intraining, who currently take on the daily task of feeding hundreds of fellow students in the Trades and Technical Centre cafeteria. (The

public is also welcome to drop in for lunch.) “We want our students to get a really wide range of cooking experience, and offering gourmet prix fixe dinner menus a couple of nights a week will round out their repertoire,” said UFV culinary arts instructor Bruce Corbeil. The 18 students have experience in standard cafeteria items like made-from-scratch burgers, pizzas, bacon and eggs, grilled cheese, and soup, as well as more adventurous fare such as linguine with creamy shrimp sauce, roasted pork loin with apple sauce, roast beef, quiche, orange ginger chicken, and beef and cashew chop suey. When it comes to Rivers, the students will not only be gain-

ing first-hand experience facing a dinner rush, they will also be working with Corbeil to learn to prepare fancier fare. The first week’s menu includes a choice of appetizers, including Qualicum Bay scallops and shrimp with cream cheese and spinach filling. Entrees range from chicken cordon bleu to planked salmon, rounded out with a dessert selection of chocolate mousse and black forest cake. Each week, the menu is a prix fixe four-course meal for $25. The first two eve-

nings, UFV’s Alumni Commemorative Wines by Bounty Cellars will be available. Seatings are at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., with reservations recommended. For more on the Rivers dining experience, and the menu, visit www.ufv.ca/rivers . The menu will change weekly so come back often to check it out. Call 604-847-5404 or email rivers@ufv.ca to reserve your spot. For more information on UFV, visit the UFV Today blog at ufvtoday.ca

Community

Drop-in offers local place to turn Katie Bartel The Progress Chilliwack’s gay community no longer has to feel segregated or alone. A bi-weekly drop-in is being held at Bravo Restaurant every Sunday to support the community’s gay and gay friendly members. The co-ed drop-in will alternate weeks to accommodate both youth and adults in the community. “Right now, there’s nowhere for any of us to meet,” said organizer Clarke Friar. “It’s so segregated in Chilliwack, everybody is so spread out, there is no one meeting place, nowhere to go that’s friendly or safe. “But we need something like that. There are so many people here who feel socially isolated or cut off, like they’re the only

ones. They need a place to go to network, to meet friends, have social interactions.” Friar speaks from experience. After a hellish high school experience, Friar moved to Vancouver because it had an established gay friendly community. There, he met several others from Chilliwack, Hope, Abbotsford and surrounding areas who had done the same. “It’s easier to leave,” said Friar. “It looks so appealing to move. You think you’re going to meet more people.” With this drop-in, he hopes to provide that same sense of community Vancouver has in Chilliwack. “When you live in a small place like Chilliwack, you feel so segregated, the chances of friendship are hard enough, a relationship is near impossible,” he said. But they’re not alone.

“I’m still surprised at how many gay people and gay allies there are in Chilliwack,” Friar said. “I’m hoping that something like this [drop-in] will show the younger people that there is a community here, there is support here, they can meet friends here, maybe even have a relationship, that there is a possibility for those kinds of things if they decide to stay in Chilliwack.” The drop in runs every Sunday at Bravo from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The youth drop-in, between the ages of 16 and 28, is on the first and third Sunday of the month. The adult drop-in, 28 and older, is on the second and fourth Sunday of the month. The restaurant is closed to the public on Sundays.

Perspectives

Happy parents will lead to happier families R

ecently CBC host Stephen Quinn interviewed an author whose book affirms an idea I believe is central to building a healthier community. We need to reduce stress on parents, increase their opportunities for socializing and recreation but also, improve their intimate relationships. David Code, an Anglican Minister who describes himself as a marriage and family coach, spoke about his new book, Kids Pick Up on Everything; How Parental Stress is Toxic to Kids. His message is, when parent focus most of their energy on the kids and not enough on themselves, ironically, they may be hurting their kids. As his book title gives away, he makes a case that kids are sensitive to the rumblings of distress in their parents and the parental alliance. The most critical time of course is when the developing human is in the womb. Through out development, humans pay attention to the needs to those who care for them. This carries on to workplace. If the bosses are distressed, it has an effect on all those under them. Divorced parents; don’t spin out of control here. The

research suggests it is the conflict between parents, not whether they live together or not that does the most harm. Investing in parents to help kids is one of the reasons the Ministry for Children Development in Chilliwack partners with Ann Davis Transition Services, UFV and Trinity Western University to offer courses that help couples improve their relationship. This is the 15th year we have regularly offered courses, all of them evidence based. Our first course, Couple Communication,

teaches skills that soften interactions and lead to more hearing and less speaking over. Parents tell us is that they find themselves using the same skills with their kids and it makes a world of difference. The second course is Handing Conflict. Based on the scientific research on marriage by Dr. John Gottman of Seattle, this course not only helps parents understand conflict, but how to build a relationship on friendship. These same principles carry over into making a more friendly family. Some are now using these concepts for develop-

ing healthier communities. Last year we added a new course to the lineup, going beyond skills to the deep need we feel for connection. Entitled “Enhancing Connection”, this workshop is inspired by the research of Dr. Susan Johnson whose marriage therapy model has demonstrated that 80% of treated distressed couples became un-distressed. Because the courses are short, just a Friday night and Saturday per month spread out over three months it isn’t a huge time commitment for a significant injection of new and refreshed ideas for the parental relationship. For more information on these courses, dates, times and registration, go to www. buildinghealthyrelationships.net . For more information

BC JOBS PLAN: TECHNOLOGY Technology is a fast-growing sector of the B.C. economy. The industry is a magnet for highly educated professionals attracted to world-class high-tech clusters including the life-sciences, digital media and wireless, information and communications technology, ocean sciences and motion picture production. The average wage of $63,440 is more than 52% above the average for all jobs in British Columbia, which makes this sector even more attractive to job seekers. In 2009, the high-tech industry provided 84,000 jobs with a total salary bill that added up to $5.3 billion, up from $4 billion in 2007. The job growth will continue, with a projected 57,000 technology jobs opening by 2019, and an annual growth rate of 2.2%. British Columbia attracts global technology leaders, including Pixar, Disney, Boeing, MDA, Microsoft, Sierra Wireless, SAP, Dolby Canada, and Intel. These major technology companies look for a stable economy with a supply of experienced employees and a supportive government. British Columbia has both. It helps that the University of British Columbia is rated No. 1 in terms of technology licensing, an indicator of a high level of success and a culture that nurtures innovation. Who was it that said ‘necessity is the mother of invention’? The answer could be Alexander Fernandes, previously of Qimage. After his Burnaby plant was broken into, Fernandes invested in what was presented as the top of the line video surveillance equipment – which in reality didn’t produce enough clarity to identify the intruders the next time it happened. At that point, Fernandes realized he knew all about imaging and knew he could do much better. Fernandes sold his company, Qimage, for a very healthy $20 million and started a new company called Avigilon with just two employees. The objective of this new venture was to up the caliber of surveillance systems to the highest possible standard. Now seven years later Avigilon is considered an industry leader. This Metro Vancouver company has created the highest-resolution cameras in the industry, backed up by cutting-edge software, using the provincial government’s small business venture capital programs to raise nearly $7 million to help fund research and development. To say this company is a huge success is putting it mildly. Avigilon has more than 10,000 systems installed in over 80 countries around the world, including schools, sporting venues, car dealerships, malls, trains and airports. A direct benefit is the 150 jobs created, with 75 of those located here in the Lower Mainland, plus a sales force scattered around the world selling Avigilon systems as fast as the Richmond plant can produce them. And they are not finished yet. The company is expanding fast, hiring an average of three or four people a month and attending university career fairs to attract top talent. The future is very bright for this company whose principal turned a problem into an idea and then into a very successful company. A healthy high-tech sector also attracts investors who are impressed by the industry’s performance. Revenues have more than tripled in the decade leading up to 2007, and were up another 4.4% by 2009, to $18.9 billion. Currently, investors receive a 30% refundable tax credit,

go “upstream”, to the source or beginning point of families and make a difference. Remember the chocolate and dinner for Valentine’s Day, but

supporting up to $100 million in investment every year. The provincial government, seeing the role they can play in this fast growing sector, will increase the value of this program by $3 million, allowing more individuals known as ‘angel investors’ to put their own capital directly into eligible small business, and to offer strategic expertise. B.C. firms attracted more than 19% of Canada’s venture capital investments in 2010, with B.C. the top province in life sciences venture capital investments. High technology wears many hats. The BC Cancer Agency is a world leader in cancer research, and B.C. is North America’s third-largest centre for film and TV production, averaging $1.2 billion in spending per year, 80% of which is foreign money. The global entertainment and media industry is expected to grow by five per cent a year to 2014, when it will hit $1.7 trillion. B.C. is well positioned to take advantage of this growth. The high-technology industry is not an island. This sector supports B.C.’s entire economy by helping other industries become more innovative, productive and globally competitive. Digital media and interactive gaming technologies are being used in education, agriculture, mining and health care. Other impacts are more global. With an estimated 5.3 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide – India and China added 300 million subscribers in 2010 alone – the demand for digital, wireless and screen-based entertainment is immense. These two countries, India and China, are undergoing mass movements to urbanization, which also gives B.C. opportunities to offer them clean, efficient energy, waste reduction and health-care solutions. B.C. is perfectly aligned to supply a healthy portion of this demand in the coming years. Airplane sales around the world are expected to reach $US3.6 trillion over the next 20 years to replace aging planes and expand fleets, providing opportunities for our advanced manufacturing sector. Plus, as a climate change leader, we are at the forefront of renewable energy technology development. Finding new markets for our solar, wind, biomass and other technologies can help turn B.C. into a cleantech powerhouse. As Canada’s Pacific Gateway, B.C. is strategically located to reach growing global markets. In addition, B.C. is close to technology and entertainment hubs in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and Seattle. Under the BC Jobs Plan, the provincial government will work with the federal government to meet our workforce needs and expedite the immigration process for researchers and scientists in other parts of the world who want to bring their expertise to British Columbia. B.C.’s fast-tracked immigration process through the Provincial Nominee Program encourages firms to locate in B.C. so they can hire experienced business immigrants. The B.C. government’s focus on this sector, identified as one of the eight key sectors with the greatest opportunity to bring new dollars into our economy from our most important trading partners, helps nurture an industry that has immense potential to accelerate growth throughout the province.

The evening’s entertainment will showcase the talents of the CSO, Belle Voci singers and guest soloists Caroline Davies and Jonathan Michel. During the cocktail hour, you will hear the dulcet tones of the symphony’s gorgeous concert harp played by resident harpist JoAnne Hankey. It is a successful tradition for the CSO and Chorus to auction off a dinner for eight, prepared for you by music director Paula DeWit and friends. This year the CSO is accepting pre-bids via

and Chorus has set the standard for presenting high quality concerts that showcase the talents of our dedicated performers of all ages; giving the people of the Fraser Valley an eclectic variety of pieces that are highly entertaining and inspirational.

Once learning the study results, participants in all ages and gift categories reported that they would be buying more flowers in the future.

A opportunities that he usually finishes. He’s fighting it bit.” The Chiefs recorded just four shots on goal through 20 minutes, and fell further behind 1:49 into the middle frame on a goal by Mario Lucia. Ryan Reilly set him up on a two-on-one rush, feathering a pass across the goal mouth where Lucia chipped it up and over Gillam’s right shoulder. “They’ve got three extremely talented lines with some great offensive weapons,” Smyl said, tipping his hat to the Vees forwards. “From our perspective, it’s easy to get a bit intimidated against a team like that, espe-

cially when you’re a young player. You can’t afford to make mistakes against them, and we made a few too many tonight.” Even after the Vees settled into cruise control, they still had their chances. Joey Benik snapped one off the goal-post on a foray down the left wing, and Gillam stopped Bryce Gervais on a breakaway. Penticton got one more before the period was done. New York Rangers prospect Steven Fogarty rang a puck off the left goal-post, and the rebound came to Benik at the top of the right faceoff dot.

With Gillam down, Benik went up with his shot, tickling the twine for his 22nd. At 5:01 of period three the Vees scored their fifth. With Alexander Perron-Fontaine parked in the penalty box, Lucia parked himself in the goal-mouth and popped a rebound past Gillam for his 32nd. A couple shifts later, Grant Nicholson cruised through the goal-mouth and punched a puck past Gillam for his fifth. Less than a minute after that, Benik hit a goal-post and Bryce Ger vais swept the rebound in on the backhand to mercifully wrap up the scoring. The final insult had

Penticton’s St. Denis taking down Chilliwack’s Spencer Graboski in a center-ice scrap. “He beat the crap out of a six-foot-three guy,” Vees captain Logan Johnston noted. Smyl strongly disagreed with Johnston’s assessment of the scrap. “I certainly didn’t think he beat the crap out of him,” the coach noted. “There was a battle going all game long between Graboski and St. Denis and the frustration boiled over a bit. He (Graboski) got into a battle, but I didn’t see what Johnston saw.” The three stars were Lucia (first), Cody DePourcq (second)

and Grant Nicholson (third). Announced attendance was 1,947. Now stuck in a three game winless slide, the Chiefs go searching for redemption this weekend with back-to-back home games against Westside (Friday) and Vernon (Saturday). Both games start at 7 p.m. “Our approach is no different than it was when we were six or seven points up,” Smyl said when asked how the team will right the ship. “We’ve got lots of games left. These are two big home games, and a chance to get going in the right direction.”

ABBOTSFORD’S 5TH ANNUAL PREMIER RUNNING EVENT

WWW.RUNFORWATER.CA

On Wednesday, when W.J. Mouat Hawks running back Devin Logan signed a letter of intent securing a football scholarship from the University of Saskatchewan, it was a tribute to his considerable athletic ability. But it was so much more than that. It was a success story for the local school system, an homage to patient parenting, and a salute to Logan’s own persistence in the face of a serious learning disability that could have derailed everything a long time ago. As a youngster, anger defined Logan’s personality. He struggled to comprehend and communicate, and in frustration he’d lash out at those around him. “There were a lot of issues,” his stepmom Tanya said, recalling Devin at age six. “He was very, very angry. This was something he had no choice in. “He was violent. He never hit me, but he would hit Frank (his dad). It was awful. I took three months off work to focus on him.” Two factors combined to turn things around for the youngster. During his Grade 1 year at Abbotsford’s Nor th Poplar Elementary, sympathetic school administrators steered him to the behaviour management program at McMillan Elementary. It was there that he learned coping mechanisms to deal with what was eventually diagnosed as receptiveexpressive language disorder. “Sometimes it’s hard for me to understand questions,” Logan explained. “My mind will shift it around and I’ll get confused really easily.” Just as importantly, Logan gained a physical

outlet when his parents registered him in football. He started with the Abbotsford Falcons, but ended up playing seven years (atom through bantam) with Chilliwack Minor Football. The aggressive nature of the game was therapeutic, and little by little, his anger issues ebbed away. Over the years, Logan would grow into one of the province’s top running backs. Last fall, he finished second in the B.C. AAA league with 1,280 rush yards and 18 touchdowns, en route to allprovince honours. The 5’10”, 190-pounder also led the league with two punt return TDs and added another major on a kickoff return. Hawks head coach Denis Kelly said Logan is the second-most talented running back he’s worked with over 25 years at Mouat, next to Boseko Lokombo. Lokombo, a class of 2009 grad who is currently starring at linebacker with the NCAA’s Oregon Ducks, is one of the brightest football prospects B.C. has ever produced. And Mouat has had a plethora of talented

ball-carriers over the years, including recent AAA players of the year Bobby Rau (2005) and former Chilliwack Husker John Smeysters (2006). Logan boasts blazing speed, but Kelly said it’s his vision that sets him apart. “He reads the field extremely well,” Kelly said. “He sees the spots he’s got to go to, and he’s great at avoiding tackles and getting as much out of each run as is there.” Logan’s vision extended to his schoolwork. Prior to Grade 11, he’d been taking abridged courses that would yield a high school diploma, but wouldn’t meet university entrance requirements. With a football scholarship in mind, he took a full slate of advanced classes, and battled through his learning disability to grind out passing grades. Logan could hardly have found a better post-secondary destination than the University of Saskatchewan. In addition to its perennial powerhouse football team, the Saskatoon school offers a unique transition program, with smaller class sizes

and technological aids to help students with learning disabilities make the jump to university. “Instead of walking in with my head down, I can walk in with my head up,” the 18-yearold said with a smile. “It’s going to be easier for me to understand what’s going on, instead of sitting there like a deer in the headlights, missing a whole bunch of information that I need to know.” U n d e r s t a n d a b l y, Logan’s parent, are practically bursting at the seams with pride these days. To name everyone who helped Devin along the way would take over an hour. But in the end, it all comes back to a determined young man. “Twelve years ago I told him, that I can lead you in the right direction, but everything you do, you’ve got to do it on your own,” Frank said. “You’ve got to make the decision that you want to do it. And he did. “Often kids in his situation, with his diagnosis, they cave in and quit. But I’ve never known of any time where he wanted to quit. He just kept going.”

Mt. Slesse soccer academy expanding A successful first year has the folks at Mt. Slesse middle school and Chilliwack FC thinking big with the soccer academy. An information night is planned for Monday, and the main topic of discussion will be expansion. The school is dou-

bling the size of the academy, going from one to two classes (from 25 to 50 students) starting this September. Students enrolled in the academy have 80 regularly scheduled on-field times plus soccer-related classroom instruction, earning a physical education

credit. “Any student in the Chilliwack School District (In Grades 7, 8 or 9) is welcome to apply,” said Mt. Slesse principal Dan Heisler. “We’re looking to expand into two classes and we know that we have lots of interest. We’ve had coaches con-

tacting us from within Chilliwack FC and we’ve had a number of parents come in, just in the past few weeks.” Monday’s info session starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Mt. Slesse library. Get more details from Heisler at 604-824-7481 or email dan_heisler@ sd33.bc.ca.

Fortunes altered Chilliwack’s U-12 Silver Striker boys made it two wins in a row in Cup play Saturday, taking a 4-1 decision over Langley. David Mackay (with two), Tyler Smith and Jacob Bockhodt scored the goals Matvij Hnatiw marshalled a stingy Chilliwack defence that kept things clean for keeper Jackson Gardner. Chilliwack went winless from September through December, but their fortunes have turned dramatically in 2012. The win over Langley, combined with a previous win over Surrey, puts the Strikers in a strong position to make the Group E finals. The locals still have three round-robin games to play.

Picture changes The next five games are crucial for the Chiefs, and the first two are this weekend on home ice, writes Jacob Bestebroer

Weekend wins boost UFV’s national reputation

A pair of weekend wins over the UBC

Thunderbirds have boosted the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades to new heights in the national men’s basketball rankings. The Cascades, who knocked off former Pacific Division frontrunner UBC 77-72 on Friday and 94-83 on Saturday, moved up from No. 8 to No. 5 in the new Canadian

Interuniversity Sport (CIS) poll released Tuesday morning. The T-Birds fell from No. 3 to No. 7. Barnaby Craddock’s UFV squad has earned a top-10 mention every week this season, fluctuating between No. 7-10. This week’s ranking represents a new high water mark for the program.

“I think I’m most impressed with the commitment of the athletes,” Craddock said. “Their level of play has allowed to get to this point in the rankings. The guys made the commitment to work hard in the off-season and in practice, and it’s rewarding to see it come together.” The UFV women’s

hoopsters, coming off a weekend split with UBC, re-entered the rankings at No. 10. The Cascades basketball teams wrap up the Canada West regular season on Thursday, as they visit their local rival Trinity Western Spartans (women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre).

Chilliwack hosted the Brad Beckett Memorial Hockey Tournament last weekend, for midget level C players. The Chilliwack Fivers went undefeated in seven games to win the tournament. Goaltenders Joe Ryan and Jarrod Hildenbrandt led the charge. Ryan posted three wins, two by shutout, while allowing just two goals against. Hildenbrandt posted four wins, one by shutout, while allowing just four goals against. The O’Connor Chrysler sponsored team beat the Surrey Predators 4-1 in the final. The most valuable player in the championship game was team captain Mitchell Penner. Twenty teams participated in the tournament, with eight advancing to the playoff round.

What a difference a week can make. Seven days ago the Chiefs were in third place with a five point cushion over the fifth place Vernon Vipers in the fight for one of the four playoff spots in the Interior Conference. After three straight losses, the Chiefs go into this weekend tied with the Vipers for fourth, now three points back of the third place Prince George Spruce Kings. The next five games are crucial for the Chiefs, and the first two are this weekend on home ice. Friday the Westside Warriors are here. They won’t make the playoffs but as we saw in their last visit to Prospera Centre a few weeks ago, they are not a bad hockey team. Saturday night the Vernon Vipers are the opposition. Games between the Chiefs and Vipers are a lot of fun and bring back some great memories from the last twenty years. There will be a separation of no more than two points between the two teams by Saturday night so the importance of this game is obvious. They’ll face each other once more after Saturday night (March 6, again in Chilliwack). It’s been nice to see a bit more of the Vipers this season after seeing them just two or three times per season from 1994-95 through 2005-06. In the four seasons prior to 1994 the Chiefs and the Vipers, then known as the Lakers faced each other 10 times per season. In total they’ve met 70 times in the regular season with Vernon winning forty of those games. They’ve also faced each other in the post season six times totalling another 32 games. Vernon won four of those six series. Some good news for the Chiefs this week. Captain Tyler Miller returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing more than a month with an injury. With just six defencemen on the 21 man roster his presence was sorely missed and getting him back is key to nailing down a playoff spot. A new promotion will be launched soon by the Chiefs, hopefully this weekend. Those of you at the games with a smart phone and the Facebook app will be able to ‘Check in’ at the game and tag a picture of yourself at the game. In doing so, you’ll have the opportunity to win prizes. Keep an eye on the Chiefs website and Facebook page for details. Feedback can be sent to jb@chilliwackchiefs.net.
