‘Friendly police officer on foot’ to patrol downtown

■ F ESTIVAL

OF THE

A RTS

Robert Freeman The Progress After years of cajoling and complaining, an RCMP officer has been dedicated to the downtown area of Chilliwack and will start regular foot patrols on Monday. Const. Ryan Price, a three-year-veteran of policing in Chilliwack, will walk the downtown beat, taking in Salish Park, Salish Plaza and the public library, all identified as crime “hot spots” in the Upper Fraser Valley RCMP detachment’s crime reduction strategy. “We’re going to see if this is a productive way of dealing with those crime hot spots,” said Cpl. Len VanNieuwenhuizen, head of the RCMP community policing office. He said the daytime foot patrols should also answer downtown merchants’ call for a more visible police presence and comfort customers while dis-comforting the bad guys. But it’s a pilot program at this point, he said. “We want to be flexible and move on to something better, if it doesn’t work,” he said. Kathy Funk, executive director of the Downtown Business Improvement Association, said the presence of “a friendly police officer on foot” in the downtown is seen as a “positive thing,” like “an ambassador.”

Cessna crash ‘operational in nature,’ says investigator Robert Freeman The Progress The Cessna carrying two young men on a training flight in mountainous terrain crashed on its way home in a remote area west of the north end of Harrison Lake Tuesday. “They were planning a roundrobin trip and this was pretty much their last leg of it,” Bill Yearwood, an investigator with the Transportation Safety Board, told The Progress on Thursday following a helicopter trip to the crash site.

“The impact was not survivable,” he said. “It’s a tragic event and two young men lost their lives.” Pilot Brett Loftus, 25, from Langley, died in the crash along with student Joel Nortman, 23, from Vancouver. They had left Boundary Bay airport earlier that day for a lesson in flying in mountainous terrain. Which despite its beauty, Yearwood said is full of optical illusions and wind currents that challenge the navigation skills of experienced pilots. Yearwood could not determine the cause of the crash from the

on-site inspection of the wreckage, but he believes it was “operational in nature,” meaning it had to do with the performance of the aircraft in mountainous terrain. There is no voice or data recorder on small planes like the Cessna, he said, “so our information has to be gathered from very basic investigator techniques.” But it’s going to takes days, maybe weeks to get the wreckage down from the crash site at 2,950 feet above sea level, on a hillside about 200 feet below the crest of a ridge in the valley between two mountains.

helicopter,” Unruh said. RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said the crash was “absolutely a tragic accident.” “The families and friends of these two men are understandably having difficulty dealing with their losses and are asking for their privacy,” she said. Because there is nothing to indicate anything criminal in the crash, the TSB and the B.C. Coroner’s Office now have full conduct of the investigation, she said.

At this stage, Yearwood can’t even establish who was flying the Cessna at the time of the crash. He said Loftus was an experienced pilot, and fully licensed. The impact of the crash set off an emergency locator in the plane, which led officials to the crash scene late Tuesday. Greg Unruh, who led a Chilliwack search and rescue team, said a helicopter flew the SAR team and TSB officials to a landing area above the wreckage, and then they made their way down to the crash site. “Everything had to be done by

Charities hope review reforms gambling grants Black Press A review of how the province shares its gambling profits with community groups must restore slashed grants to former levels and curtail Victoria’s ability to interfere in the future, charity advocates say. The Community Gaming Grant Review, announced Monday by Premier Christy Clark, is to deliver a top-to-bottom assessment of the system and determine options to “create certainty and sustainability” for affected non-profit groups and charities.

It will be headed by former Kwantlen University president Skip Triplett. Many groups were outraged in 2009 when the province cut grants to community groups from $156 million to $120 million a year. That was raised to $135 million this spring after Clark took office. Susan Marsden, president of the B.C. Association for Charitable Gaming, characterized the raid two years ago as an attack on nonprofits, particularly those in arts and culture. “They decided they were going to cut out arts and culture entirely, cut environmental groups entirely,

cut other groups by 50 per cent and give 100 per cent to their favourite charities,” she said. Rich Coleman, the former minister in charge of gaming, had defended the cuts as necessary to shore up B.C.’s budget amid a deepening global recession and said the reallocations were geared to protect youth groups at the expense of organizations serving adults. Marsden accused Coleman of putting his personal anti-arts stamp on the decision and said she hopes the review ensures nothing similar can happen again. “We need to get government at

arm’s length from this,” she said. “In the short term, we need to get all of the charities funded again to the levels they were in 2008. In the long term, we need to look at stability, at legislation that enshrines the funding formula.” Marsden praised Clark for delivering on her pledge of a review and said the terms of reference are acceptable – except that Triplett won’t report until the end of October. “I don’t know if there will be any charities left to fund once they get around to putting anything into legislation, not to mention there may be an election in between.”

Totem returned to elders’ gathering Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The totem pole representing the B.C. Elders’ Gathering has been missing for six long years. It recently resurfaced — just in time for Sto:lo communities to welcome thousands of aboriginal elders to the Fraser Valley. When the 35th annual B.C. Elders’ Gathering opens Tuesday with a song and a prayer at The Tradex in Abbotsford, the portable black totem will once again preside over the event, to be bid on by aspiring host communities and to be safeguarded until the next gathering. “It’s the official symbol of the elders’ gathering, so it has to take back its rightful place,” said Peter Lindley, coordinator of the Coqualeetza Elders’ group at the Coqualeetza Education Centre. “We’re telling everyone, ‘the totem pole has come home.’” It was carved by Francis Horne Sr. for the first gathering in Sto:lo territory. Now everyone is thrilled to hear the totem is back. It turned out it was tucked away in a display cabinet with a Capilano elders’ group in North Vancouver. “What I think happened, and it’s only a guess because no one seems to know for sure, is that the group which had the totem in its possession didn’t realize it was supposed to be passed on to the next host nation,” said Lindley. “Sometimes things change in communities and the knowledge gets lost.” Historically the highlight of every elders’ gathering was bidding on the opportunity to host the next event, with the firm backing of one’s community. As part of that process there is a formal gift exchange between the reigning and future hosts, as well

as the Elder King and Queen. “Years ago someone must have thought the totem pole was one of those gifts to keep,” said Lindley. It was presented to some Sto:lo community members last week. “I was shocked that they were able to track the totem pole down. I was also ecstatic to hear that the

people who had it were going to hand it over for the gathering,” said Halq’emeylem language teacher Wendy Ritchie, from Skowkale. “I love that it brings us the history of each gathering. We can see where it’s been for the past 35 years.”

Sto:lo and Coast Salish communities on both sides of the border are hosting the three-day elders’ event with an estimated 4,000 elders and 1,000 chaperones and volunteers ready to meet at the Tradex in Abbotsford. It all started in the 1980s when the Coqualeetza Elders’ group launched a discussion about the high drop-out and suicide rates among youth, and it grew into an annual event. The totem pole functions as a record keeper with places and dates inscribed on small plaques at the base of it, recording each gathering’s details. The only events missing will be those from the past six years. Ritchie designed the official logo for this year’s gathering, with a central spiral to represent time immemorial, along with some recognizable Sto:lo symbols. She’s also being honoured for her contribution, by being asked to sing the opening song and offer the opening prayer. Elders take their place as advisors, teachers and leaders at the gathering, socializing and celebrating accomplishments as well as reinvigorating themselves for future work. They’ll share traditional ways with a variety of songs, dances and ceremonies throughout the event. The elegant, black totem was carved by Francis Horne, Sr. out of pine that he later stained and polished to a high gloss. He was asked by Shirley Leon from Coqualeetza to carve something symbolic for the first gathering more than 35 years ago. “It’s pretty to cool to hear it’s back,” said the carver. “I was a young man when I carved it and I haven’t seen it for years.” Horne will be at the Tradex this week to set eyes on the totem — for the first time in a long time. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

IT’S WHAT MOTIVATES.

Many non-profit groups are “on life support” after cutting staff and switching to cheaper accommodation, she said. More than two thirds of the $1-billion a year in revenue that comes to the province from gambling goes into general revenue, with another $147 million dedicated to health funding, $82 million shared with cities that host casinos or community gaming centres and the rest is shared with community groups. Charities have often been enlisted to voice their support for gaming when new casinos or slot Continued: GRANTS/ p4

Chilliwack Chamber urges ‘No’ vote in HST referendum HST will encourage economic growth, Chamber says The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce is urging Chilliwack residents to vote No and keep the harmonized sales tax in place. “This is one of the most important business decisions facing us today, and it is imperative that our community understand the implications involved with extinguishing the HST and returning to the antiquated GST/PST,” Lisa Caruth, the chamber’s executive director, said in a news release. Caruth was not immediately available for comment. But in the news release she said the chamber has supported the idea of a harmonized sales tax system in B.C. since 2002. “If we return to the PST/GST tax regime, there is no question businesses will lose,” she said. “If businesses lose, consumers lose. If consumers lose, families lose,” she said. The HST is a “straightforward consumption tax,” Caruth said, while the PST is a “cascade of compounding” charges that lead to higher taxes on investment. “Removing investment penalties, such as the PST, will inevitably encourage job creation, better wages and economic growth,” she said. Eligible voters must cast their referendum ballots before an Aug. 5.

The Chilliwack Bruins leaving town did not leave Sardis secondary’s hockey academy in the lurch. In fact, if anything, the high school academy will be thriving next year. Which is exactly what it was built up to do. “The sign of a good program is one that continues long after the original people are gone,” said vice principal Maryanne Mussell. “When we originally set this up, we wanted something that had legs, so that if any one partner changed, it would still be able to function.” The academy already has 26 students regis-

tered for next year – a 73 per cent increase from its first year. As well, the school has also formed a new partnership with the Chilliwack Chiefs, which will assist with on-ice coaching, skill development and leadership. For the Chiefs, it was a natural fit. “Belonging to a community and showing that we are a part of that community, that’s what we want to do,” said Chiefs coach Harvey Smyl, For Sardis secondary, the partnership was just another way of engaging their students. The purpose of the hockey academy is not only to develop players on and off the ice, but

to also engage a further range of students who may not have otherwise enjoyed school, and to provide those students with more options for post high school. In addition to on-ice training, students also learn about nutrition, physical conditioning and leadership. They hear from coaches, a variety of sports experts and visit hockey programs at universities like the University of British Columbia. Last year’s academy attracted a range of skill levels, including both recreational and toptiered players. “Not everybody is going to be a star hockey player; for many, this is as high as they get,” said Mussell.

“When we started this, it was to hook kids on school ... and part of the plan was for them to have a viable transition plan in place when they leave school.” For some, that’s university. For others, it could mean coaching, refereeing, or some other role in the local hockey community. The academy will again run in the second semester of school to best compliment the players other hockeyrelated commitments. Most of the students in the academy already play hockey in the community and many attend hockey camps in the summer. By having the academy in the second semester, “it’s like spring training for them,” said Mussell. The program operates every day, over two blocks, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. For more information, visit the school’s website at www.sardissecondary.ca kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Site plans for south side library Preliminary design plans for a new library on the south side of Chilliwack were released by the City of Chilliwack Thursday. The plans, which were on display at an open house at Twin Rinks Wednesday evening, call for a 9,700-squarefoot facility, that will feature plenty of windows, reading areas for teens, adults and children, as well as a multi-purpose meeting area. The entrance would be on the south side of the building, with windows facing north. Some green space would be lost to parking, but efforts would be made to preserve as many of the trees now on the property as possible. Construction would mean a relocation of the skate park, and the existing playground would be redesigned. Residents were asked at Wednesday’s open

News Bandana clad suspects sought Chilliwack RCMP are looking for anyone who may have witnessed a bank robbery on Friday afternoon. Two masked men wearing bandanas robbed the Bank of Montreal on Vedder Road Friday at just past noon and then took off in a white GMC Safari van. The pair made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, and the van was later ditched on Lickman Road. A West Kelowna man, 22, has been arrested, and was due in court Tuesday to face robbery charges.

“The RCMP believe there are three men associated with this robbery, two that robbed the bank and one who was the driver of the getaway vehicle,” said RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. During the holdup, the area around the bank was very busy, and there could be other witnesses who saw something relevant, she said. “We are asking if you were in that area at the time of the robbery and saw something suspicious and have not yet called the police to please do so,” she said.

The Progress Biologist and blogger Carin Bondar of Chilliwack is thrilled to be at the helm of a new blog network at Scientific American called PsiVid. “I’m very interested in pop culture, as well as science,” she said. Bondar will be cohosting the blog with Joanne Manaster, where they will showcase science videos like those found on YouTube, as well as full-scale independent films and TV projects. “I’m so darn thrilled about the possibilities with this blog,” Bondar said. The aim is to make it the best science hub in cyberspace. “It’s wonderful to be at the helm of such a forward-thinking project like this, not to mention that it’s hosted by two science women, both moms, and between us Joanne and I have eight kids.” Being almost six months pregnant is not going to stop this busy biologist.

Dr. Carin Bondar is the author of The Nature of Human Nature. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

“I’ve worked incredibly hard to get my freelance contracts and everything in place that I do have — so there’s no rest for the wicked,” she added. “As it is I have a several more appearances scheduled for the summer including TV, radio and Internet of course.” Bondar, who calls herself the ‘biologist with a twist,’ can also be seen doing guest spots on Animal Planet, Urban Rush, and Breakfast Television Vancouver.

Whatever the medium, her quirky stories about animal survival and reproduction are full of passion for members of the animal kingdom. Several made it into her non-fiction book, The Nature of Human Nature, which came out last year. “If only we could reflect a little more on the biology behind our actions, the world would be a much simpler, and perhaps happier, place to live,” she wrote in

the introduction to the book. These days Bondar and her husband are preparing for their fourth child, while she ponders her busy future. “Since the book came out I’ve been largely concentrating on creating and maintaining a solid presence on the Internet, mostly through my blog, with around 20,000 unique visitors per month,” she said. Her independent blog at carinbondar.com features her science videos about field work called BioMusings, and she’s up for a Labby award from The Scientist magazine in New York for her efforts. Interestingly, Bondar didn’t start off in world of science. When she was a young woman she danced as a professional ballerina in Germany, before deciding to pursue science as a career. She attended university in Burnaby, and Victoria, and received her PhD in ecology from UBC. As of last year, she had acquired three degrees and three children. At one point she became enthralled by the beauty and complexity of the natural world, and that sense of wonder still fuels her work. One of her recent media projects was writing and starring in the film ‘Why did the Toad Cross the Road?’ produced by Matthew Hawkins. It touched on the plight of migrating Western toads in Ryder Lake, and it took the top Continued: BONDAR/ p15

Mosquito Season is Here. e.

HST lowers house prices in Chilliwack, Realtor claims “I sent it on to our NDP team because of the way it was framed, like it was a unique situation only in Chilliwack,” she said. Former B.C. Premier Bill Vander Zalm said in an email that the Fight HST organization get “more complaints about the negative effects of the HST from home builders and realtors than from any other particular group.” “I don’t know what is happening in Chilliwack,” he said. “We are taking the Liberal government to task with the ombudspersons office over false, misleading and lying advertising, maybe this government release should be thrown into the mix.”

drop with the HST. “By removing the embedded PST that used to apply to every can of paint, all the nails and every piece of lumber that goes into a new house, the HST has resulted in the final price being lower for these new homes,” he said. Said Chilliwack MLA John Les in the release: “This is great news for home buyers. Not only does the HST lower the costs for builders, but it’s now easier for first-time home owners to enter the housing market.” NDP activist Gwen O’Mahony, who has run in both federal and provincial elections, said the news release “seems to be a real desperate effort to sell this tax to Chilliwack.”

New houses in Chilliwack are more affordable due to rebates under the harmonized sales tax, claims Chilliwack Realtor Jake Siemens. “In the Chilliwack area, the HST has lowered the cost of the average new home we are selling at Jinkerson Vistas by between $900 and $2,200,” he said in a news release issued by the B.C. Liberal government caucus. Siemens stood by his comments in a telephone interview with The Progress Wednesday. But other realtors aren’t so sure, saying the HST and its impact on real estate is “so confusing,” as Mark Andersen, president of the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board, put it, that Siemens’ calculations have been sent on to the provincial real estate board. But Chilliwack realtor Michael Henshall is already firmly in the anti-HST camp. “I would say, if there is a decrease in price, it’s due to the economy as a whole slowing down,” he said, as new home buyers hold off purchases, the inventory of unsold houses grows, which causes prices to fall. “Vote to get rid of the HST,” he advised, quoting Winston Churchill’s

comment that “for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself.” According to the Vancouver Real Estate Board’s HST site, buyers of homes priced under $525,000 won’t have to pay the HST due to rebates. But it goes on to say that the HST “penalizes those homebuyers who have saved vigorously to purchase a new home in B.C. and who can afford something more substantial and bigger for their families.” In Chilliwack, where the average house price starts at about $445,000, Siemens said the “HST rebates for this price range would reduce the final sale price by nearly $1,300 compared to the PST/GST.” However, Henshall pointed out that buyers still face extra costs as the HST is applied to previously untaxed house inspections, conveyancing and realtors’ fees. In the government news release, Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner said economists had predicted new house prices would

Fighting for Flight Fest The Chilliwack Flight Fest will likely see some glimmer of hope in Monday’s announcement that the government will review how gambling grants are distributed in the province. (See story, page 3.) Earlier this year that festival learned it would no longer be eligible for a grant that covered 30 per cent of the event’s costs. Recent changes to the way the grants were distributed left Flight Fest outside the funding formula. And, as The Progress reported July 5, that has cast doubt over the event’s future. Organizers were told they would no longer qualify for the $30,000 grant, but they weren’t told why. That’s part of the problem, said Susan Marsden, president of the B.C. Association for Charitable Gaming. She’s called for more transparency and less government interference, saying the current system has left groups unsure about the process used to determine eligibility for the grants they depend on. Ida Chong, minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, said the review should address those concerns. “This review is not just about how much money we can share,” said Chong. “It’s about the process we use to decide together who should have access to this funding, what we can do with it and how we are accountable for it.” That’s no guarantee that the Flight Fest grant will be reinstated. But it does give Chilliwack an opportunity to lobby. Flight Fest has been a summertime institution in Chilliwack for two decades. It’s a free, family friendly event that draws thousands of people to a thrilling afternoon of aerial display. But it does more. Not only is it an opportunity for the community to gain insight into the local airport services it supports, but it captures the magic and mystery of flight for children and adults alike. Fly Fest organizers will continue their push to find new sponsors for their event. But as they do, Chilliwack should pay attention to the Community Gaming Grant Review that will be taking place over the next few months. If there’s an opportunity for input, provide it.

Small steps forward in protecting species at risk It seems we’re still not up to speed protecting endangered wildlife. Last week the Clark government released the Report of the British Columbia Task Force on Species at Risk which addressed the current status of endangered wildlife and efforts to mitigate loss. Apparently, we’re coming up short. The formation of the task force was announced in August 2009 and the panel has 10 members chosen for their expertise in areas such as environmental protection, mining, ranching, resource management, academia and First Nations’ partnerships. “We were asked to develop practical and fiscally responsible recommendations,” said Bruce Fraser, task force chair, recent chair of the Forest Practices Board and plant ecologist with UBC. “Accordingly, we have elected to build on the

many conservation initiatives that have already been accomplished. Our report is aimed at making early gains on both public and private land while proposing direction for the long term that will help to address the continuing pressures of development and climate Margaret change.” British Columbia EVANS is renowned for its stunning diversity of wild species and spaces. These vast, interrelated, dynamic ecosystems with clean water, rich soils, abundant vegetation and geologic riches were, after all, the foundation for the province’s economy and growth. There are close to 3,600 species native to B.C. including some 76 per cent of Canada’s bird species as well as 70 per cent

of the nation’s freshwater fish species. But in moving forward we forgot to look back at the damage being done to the very species and spaces that attracted people in the thousands in the first place. Today there are close to 1,600 animal and plant species together with 329 ecological communities at risk in B.C. The primary reason is habitat loss and that is getting all the more complicated by climate change, warming weather patterns and seasons that are shifting from their historical patterns and putting stress on species timesensitive to feeding, migration and reproduction. Historically, the conservation management approach has been to focus on each species at risk to prevent extinction but that one-onone approach doesn’t work when addressing the real complexity of an ecosystem that must support

all the species in it. Then there are the grinding costs and the fact that many species have pockets of population crossing various jurisdictional boundaries. “One result of the single-species approach is that many people believe the way to influence conservation on the larger landscape is to champion the needs of highly visible individual species,” said the authors in their report. “In areas of complex jurisdictions with greater biodiversity, it is difficult to implement a single-species approach on a mass scale, making it necessary to set priorities.” According to the report, the conservation movement based itself on a ‘winners’ or ‘losers’ approach. Species received protection based not only on their urgent needs but also on their iconic status. That approach was sometimes at the expense of the losers, or those less visible. Amphibians, for instance,

spring to mind where 30 per cent of the world’s 6,285 species are endangered. Yet they are just as functionally important to an ecosystem as flagship bears, marmots or caribou. Then there’s the plethora of legislation to manage endangered species with the legal implications of federal and provincial laws that can complement or conflict with each other depending on their shared landscape. Logically, if you take care of the land, the animals will take care of themselves. It’s not a bad guideline to live by and luckily it’s been embraced by the task force members. That eco-system based approach tops the list of the report’s 16 recommendations. The report can be accessed at the environment ministry’s website: www.gov.bc.ca/env and they are inviting public input.

Latest Promontory fire raises questions As a resident of Promontory I was dismayed by four matters addressed in your Thursday, July 7, article about the recent house fire on Daniel Drive. First of all, living near another residence (a townhouse) which burned three weeks ago I know that neighbors there were also upset with the time it took for the firefighters to arrive. In regard to the Daniel Drive blaze Fire Chief Rick Ryall said the two trucks from the Sardis Fire Hall 4 were at Cottonwood Mall and downtown when the blaze was reported so the first firefighters on the scene had to come from downtown, increasing the response time. Which raises a question about why the truck at Cottonwood Mall did not arrive first? The second matter is the comment from the Fire Chief, “I can’t dispute that if the full-time guys were twiddling their thumbs at Fire Hall 4 the response time would have been faster.” Having some professional firefighters as

family and friends I do not think they would appreciate the inference of the chief that this is what firefighters do when they are not actually fighting a fire. The chief also blamed the traffic at that time of day. That is why emergency vehicles have lights and sirens and the right-of-way. I watched one of the responding trucks coming up Promontory Road at its steepest point and it was moving like any other heavy truck trying to climb that hill. My third point is the chief’s statement that Chilliwack has 24 professional firefighters plus paidon-call volunteers. The City of Chilliwack’s statistics predicted a population of 86,000 for 2010. Since likely no more than 8 of those 24 professional firefighters are on duty at any given time it raises another question about the need for more professional firefighters in Chilliwack. A few months ago the mayor admitted in an interview that for its size Chilliwack has the fewest professional firefighters per

capita in British Columbia. My final concern is the statement by the chairperson of the Promontory Resident’s Association that “neither full-time firefighters nor a firehall in Promontory is being talked about...” Why not? The City of Chilliwack has permitted the building of homes and businesses in Promontory so that the population numbers in the many thousands, yet we are not considered important enough to have a staffed firehall on Promontory. I suggest that it is time that the administration of the city realizes that Chilliwack is no longer a small town and begins planning immediately to increase the number of firehalls and firefighters to service the community. It is one of our most critical needs and it needs to be addressed now. I only hope the company through which I purchase my house insurance does not find out about this problem, otherwise our insurance premiums are certain to increase.

Week. Having spent much of my life as a firefighter and educator in fire safety, I believe that we must also spend our resources on education. After all, most accidental fires can be prevented. With today's economy, cities like Chilliwack are hard pressed to find further funding for any of the emergency services. With more effort, we can educate the public on fire prevention by the reduction of flammables and combustibles in our

homes and proper use and storage of those items. We can also educate the public on choices in flame resistant materials used in the manufacturing of furniture and window coverings and not to mention, the elimination of accidental ignition sources. Some may read this and think that I don't support our full-time firefighters and their effort to secure more paid career positions. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

As mentioned, I would also like to see better coverage. I just think we need to try to prevent these fire life safety incidents before they actually occur. As a result of this, we will see fewer fire incidents and fewer fire loss insurance claims which would benefit all of us. If you read my rant and you agree, contact our local fire department and become more educated in fire prevention and fire safety.

Summer drivers need to show cyclists respect It’s that time of year again when peaceful, ecologically aware people on bikes seem to become fair game for cowards in cars and dogs unleashed. On July 4, at around 5 p.m., as I was riding south on Ashwell Road towards Deans Avenue, I was suddenly struck, deliberately and with force, by what proved to be an almost empty DQ drink container. As a senior, I was temporarily disoriented and could easily have fallen. I carried on through Eagle Landing and was hailed by a lady

Fire prevention would reduce the risk I live just a few blocks away from the fire that occurred on Daniel Drive on Tuesday. I've read all the articles and heard the talk about more fire coverage, whether fulltime or paid-on-call for the Sardis area. I agree that it would be nice to have better coverage, but we tend to forget a key component of fire safety and that's fire prevention and education. It is rarely ever mentioned in the news media other than during Fire Prevention

Air ambulance saves reader’s life Re: “Air ambulance saving lives in the Fraser Valley.” (Chilliwack Progress, July 7), I am very pleased you wrote the article about the air ambulance saving lives as I have wanted to speak publicly to the whole crew and hospital staff for saving my life on Saturday, July 2, 2011. I am one of those people out of the six you spoke about. On Saturday I had gone into high blood pressure and a possible blood clot in my artery and rushed to the hospital. They immediately took me in E.R. and the professional staff worked fervently to save my life and prevent my heart from going into cardiac arrest. They made the decision to air lift me in the air ambulance and in minutes I was whisked off to RCH. They thought I had a blood

My family really enjoyed your article in yesterday’s Progress (Air ambulance saving lives in the Fraser Valley). My dad, John Vandegraaf who lives in Chilliwack, suffered a major heart attack on Canada Day and was rushed via helicopter to RCH. He received angioplasty and 4 stents within 2.5 hours of having his heart attack. And because of this, minimal damage was done to the muscle in his heart. I would like to compliment everyone involved, as the ambulance attendants also arrived within 10 minutes of my mom calling 911. He had a second procedure on Wednesday with two more stents and was able to go home yesterday. You can add number seven to the list of people to whom owe their lives to this new great program.

If you were out at Heritage Park on July 1st, one of the sights you may have seen was a sea of red shirts selling hot dogs & burgers. As usual, the Mount Cheam Lions were raising funds to help those in need in our community. We appreciate those who came to support us. The fact that we ran out of everything is an indication of how well we did. Thank you Chilliwack. July 1st also marks the start of a new year for all Lions Clubs. We anticipate another great year with the help of the people of Chilliwack. We will shortly be holding a planning session to set out our new goals and projects. At the same time, we are already working on our usual annual events, such as the Train & Hobby show in October. Most Lions Clubs close down for the summer, but for the Mount Cheam Lions in Chilliwack it’s business as usual. We meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month with an optional meal. These meetings are used to inform members and plan projects as well as receiving input from our members. For anyone thinking of becoming a Lion, we would like to invite them to one of our dinner meetings, so they can see ¿rst hand how our club operates. If you are one of these prospective members, you can call me or any member of the Mount Cheam Lions and we will set up an opportunity for you to attend one of these dinner meetings. You will not be under any obligation and no pressure will be applied.

Driver’s test called a ruse I refer to the so-called Alzheimer’s Driver’s Test in Patricia Swen’s letter printed in the July 7 edition of The Progress. Why can’t the motor vehicle licencing people simply administer a basic road test to determine whether a person still has the necessary skills to drive our roads safely? Who is administering this so-called Alzheimer’s test? I am amazed mere motor vehicles staff are qualified to diagnose such a complex condition as Alzheimer’s disease using a hokey word game. Is consideration given to people with concerns such as dyslexia or speech impediments? Perhaps the test would fail a legal challenge. A poor driving record should be the first indicator that a person’s driving skills should be reviewed and re-tested, not their ability to memorize and repeat a tricky word game regardless of their age. The new test would appear to be a blatant ruse. Stop the madness! K.C. Curry

Justice Institute takes on green energy â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ten years ago, people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about solar, but now more and more people and businesses are going solar.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Katie Bartel The Progress Instead of power lines, the Justice Institute of B.C. is heating its water the natural way. Through sun energy. The Justice Institute, a training facility for first responders, recently had 14 solar panels installed at the Chilliwack campus to provide hot water for showers, sinks and laundry machines in the student residence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought it would be a great go-green initiative,â&#x20AC;? said Richard Epp, JIBC director of facilities. According to SolarBC, a program of the B.C. Sustainable Energy Association, water is the second largest demand on energy in homes representing about 30 per cent of total energy use â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mostly acquired through hydroelectric dams, coal-fired power plants, and underwater electrical cables. By using solar panels, energy efficiency is increased and greenhouse gases decreased. The dark-purple, almost blackcoloured panels, which are nearly eight-feet tall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost half a foot taller than basketball star Yau Ming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and three-and-a-half feet wide are located on the south side of the Justice Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s student residence and directly face the sun for optimal performance. The panels act as a magnet for the sun, capturing its light and heat energy and converting it into a heating agent for domestic water. The system is a closed-loop system where glycol, a non-toxic antifreeze solution, and distilled water run through the panels over a double-walled heat exchanger and are then stored in solar hot water tanks before being pumped through the domestic water piping system. Depending on the sun, the solar panels can get as hot as 80 degrees

Melanie Tadla, facilities administrator at the Justice Institute, believes the 14 solar panels recently installed at the Chilliwack campus student residence will help spark environmental change in the community. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Celsius. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy from the sun where we actually have enough heat in our planet to receive this heat for free,â&#x20AC;? said Roger Huber, CEO of Swiss Solar Tech, the company that installed the panels. Harnessing solar energy isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t new. While solar panels were first commercialized in the mid 1950s, people have been using solar power in various forms for over 100 years. Globally, more than 29 million homes use solar power for hot water and heating. Europe leads the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you go to Europe, 60 to 70 per cent of any household today has solar panels on the roof,â&#x20AC;? said Huber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Europe has much higher energy costs, about two to three times

higher, which does make a differenceâ&#x20AC;? when choosing to go solar. Energy costs in B.C. are still fairly low, but gradually thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changing. According to the British Columbia Utility Commission, natural gas prices have increased an average of 12 per cent per year since 1998. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ten years ago, people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about solar,â&#x20AC;? said Huber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But now more and more people and businesses are going solar ... in the last five years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely seen an increase in solar installations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free energy.â&#x20AC;? At the Justice Institute, the solar panels complement the boiler system. When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overcast and grey out, the boiler system does the work. But when the sun is shin-

ing, the solar panels take over, producing enough heat to accommodate up to 150 students showering every day and doing laundry at least twice a week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get the most use out of those panels in the summer months,â&#x20AC;? said Epp. Which is perfect for the Chilliwack campus. The Department of National Defense program is a six-month program, with classes running through the summer months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a campus thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on a semester system, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of sun creating a lot of hot water, but very little usage,â&#x20AC;? said Epp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we thought it would make the most sense to have the panels at our Chilliwack campus

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the students are there for six months, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go home in the summer.â&#x20AC;? Because the panels are still fairly new, the Justice Institute doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet have reports on cost savings. Huber estimates approximately $700 to $800 a year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $96,000 in 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paid off, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free heat,â&#x20AC;? said Huber. The solar panels cost $70,000 to install. The Justice Institute received $49,000 from the Public Sector Energy Conservation Agreement, $10,400 from Fortis BC, $7,000 from the JIBC Foundation, and $7,000 from the Justice Institute to install the panels.. Solar panels can last anywhere from 20 to 40 years. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

The teen was taken by ambulance to the airport where he was airlifted to BC Children's Hospital for treatment of non life threatening injuries. "The boy's condition has improved as of today," the officer said Monday. "He should consider himself a very lucky boy. He was wearing a helmet which probably saved him from suffering more severe injuries."

graduation ceremony held on recently at Seabird Island. Seabird College opened last September and offered nine adult education programs, which gave First Nations people oppor-

tunities to obtain an adult Dogwood, a trade or vocation. In September, 172 students were registered. “The Band started the college in our community to help stu-

dents overcome barriers to success which they experienced in off-site institutes,” said Carolyne Neufeld, Dean of the Seabird College. “Students need cultural, community and family supports in order to reach their dreams. With the opening of Seabird College, we are able to provide these supports close to home.” The college also provides a broad range of employment services and technical training, including career/ employment assessment and counseling, employment readiness, academic upgrading, work placement and monitoring services. As well, the college introduced a new Eagle Quest Program dedicated to helping young people complete their Grade 12, where First Nations communities, institutions and families surround the student providing supports for success. “This unique and collaborative approach of the College and Community School has been successful in providing education and training to First Nations who would otherwise not have enrolled in offsite public institutes,” said Daryl McNeil, Band manager. “Forty nine adult graduates in one year is a record-breaking success for our adult learners.” Seabird plans to offer an expanded and exciting array of adult programs starting in September 2011.

Community

The Chilliwack Community Garden project in Sardis is starting to come together. The first work party last week was held by members of Food Matters Chilliwack and Chilliwack Society for Community Living (CSCL) who are creating the garden project together, said Jason Delisle of Food Matters. “More than 25 volunteers were there digging, building,

ing is that the team approached our group with the desire to give back to the local community,” said Delisle. “Their generosity and enthusiastic participation really started the ball rolling, and their example really drove home the message that Chilliwack is indeed a community that cares.” CSCL was credited for organizing, supervising and rounding up volunteers for the work party, as well as for providing lunch and refreshments to all who participated.

The next volunteer work party at the garden next to the Mathieson Centre, at 45195 Wells Road, will be on Thursday, July 14, when they welcome the Youth Extra Support Program (Y.E.S.) team from Ann Davis Transitional Society. To volunteer to help with the garden, to sign up for a garden plot, or to donate equipment, supplies and tools call Julie Unger at 604-7927726 or email foodmatterschilliwack.gardens@gmail.com jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

Mosquito Control Update from the Fraser Valley Regional District Rain and continuous high-water levels on the Fraser River have led to an unusually large number of mosquitoes this summer, creating a major annoyance for many of this region’s residents. To address the extreme mosquito levels, the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) will be spending an additional $100,000 this summer on ramped-up control efforts. The FVRD’s mosquito control contractor (Morrow Bioscience Ltd.) has been working non-stop since early May to reduce mosquitoes and will continue doing so for as long as necessary.

(here) «

Efforts to combat mosquitoes are ongoing and include: x On-the-ground larvicide* treatment of mosquito development sites. x Wide-scale aerial (helicopter) larvicide* treatment of sites that are inaccessible by foot or boat. To date

the FVRD has treated over 1200 hectares spanning from Abbotsford to Hope. development sites. x The FVRD is also making every effort to respond to the hundreds of emails and phone calls received daily from the public during this unusually busy mosquito season.

SUMMER HOURS: 10:00am - 8:00pm 7 DAYS A WEEK!

Larvicide* is a bacterial pesticide that is used to kill mosquitoes while they are still in the larval stage. It specifically targets mosquito larvae, and as used, is otherwise harmless to the environment. Adulticide is a chemical pesticide used to kill adult mosquitoes. Adulticiding, commonly referred to as “fogging”, is not a practice that is currently used in BC, as it is not considered to be an effective method of control. The FVRD does not conduct adulticiding.

How to limit mosquito bites: x Apply insect repellent containing DEET according to label instructions when outdoors. x Wear shoes and socks and long-sleeved, lightcoloured, loose-fitting shirts and pants when outdoors. x Avoid mosquito-laden areas at dawn and dusk. x Install tight-fitting screens on doors and windows. x Eliminate or regularly change water in saucers under flower pots, in bird baths, old tires, pet dishes, gutters, pool cavers, trampolines, tarps and other areas where rainwater may collect. x Swimming pools should be properly maintained and chlorinated and wading pools should be emptied and turned over when not in use. x Use fine mesh to cover rain barrels and containers that cannot be dumped.

Classic returns to Canada for Minter car show Call it patriotism or just a love of cars, but when Chilliwack’s Trevor Weflen stumbled across a 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado stored in the United States, he just knew it had to come back to Canada. In 1967, to help celebrate Canada’s Centennial and Expo 67, Esso Oil Company commissioned Hollywood’s George Barris to promote their summer safety campaign by creating a unique vehicle that would be used as a prize. Barris has spent a lifetime customizing cars and is well known in Hollywood for his work; some of his most famous creations include the Batmobile, the Munster Koach from the Munsters, the Beverly Hillbillies’ jalopy, and he even updated KITT from the Knight Rider series. For Expo 67, he customized four identical Oldsmobile Toronados that were given away by Esso as the summer fair continued. One of the four was won by a Texas resident and this spring Weflen, poking around on Craig’s List came across the car for sale in the States. As it was labeled incorrectly on the ad, he wasn’t sure it was the one he was looking for until he saw it in person. It was — and it took his breath away. “I really did stumble across it, but when I saw it and knew that this was it. I had this really Canadian moment and I told myself that this car belongs in Canada,” he says. “It was a moment of clarity and I knew that car was coming home with me.” After a few days of negotiations, Weflen was happily making plans to bring this rare find back to Canada. It is now stored in Chilliwack and will be a part of this year’s Classic Car Show held at Minter Gardens on July 17. The Classic Car show

One of four 1967 Oldsmobile Toronados, specially commissioned to celebrate Canada’s centennial, is now in Chilliwack and will be at Minter’s Classic Car Show on Sunday. SUBMITTED

is organized each summer by the Fraser Valley British Motor Club at Chilliwack’s Minter Gardens and is the highlight for car enthusiasts across the province and Western States. Fraser Valley British Motor Club vicepresident Harv McCullough says the Toronado is a much-welcome addition to the show. “We are really proud that this car is not only in Canada, but in Chilliwack and we want to highlight how unique this vehicle is and how lucky we are to have it available for our show,” says McCullough. “It really is in a class all by itself and for that reason our committee has decided to add a Specialty Feature Novelty car category for this car.” Event organizer Erin Minter is expecting more than 100 mint-condition, classic

cars at this year’s show and she says car lovers are going to be thrilled by the variety and sheer beauty of the line-up. While the cars are the main attraction, they could not be showcased in a more beautiful setting. Minter Gardens features 12 uniquely themed gardens and the cars are parked throughout the acres and acres of colourful flowers. Interconnecting paths help with the natural flow of the show and visitors will enjoy the natural beauty with the nostalgia and history celebrated by these classic cars. The Classic Car show takes place Sunday, July 17 at Minter Gardens located at 52892 Bunker Rd., Chilliwack and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For rates regarding admission and directions to Minter Gardens please visit http://www.mintergardens.com

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Sardis native Hayden Lejeune is one of 12 players named to the U-15 Team B.C. squad that will play at nationals in Toronto in August. Lejeune just graduated from Vedder middle school and will likely attend Sardis secondary school in the fall. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Towering teenager taking on Toronto Eric J. Welsh, The Progress Life isn’t always easy for the big man. For six-foot-six Hayden Lejeune, it means crossing the border to get his size-15 sneakers at Ross in Bellingham. Finding pants his size? A struggle. Looking down at just about everything in his world. Neck pain. And the tall jokes? “How’s the weather up there?” he says of the most commonly heard crack. “I haven’t heard much that’s new lately.” Yep. Being Jolly Green Giant tall can be challenging. But for all the downside, there is also upside for the recent graduate of Vedder middle school. Standing 78 inches tall (79 in his shoes) puts him a lot closer to a regulation size basketball hoop that stands 10 feet. Stretching his arms

to their full length, he needs only a little hop to slam the ball or block a shot. Opponents have a tough task navigating past his long legs and enormous wingspan, and when the mood strikes he can be a dominant force in the paint. He is the type of kid basketball coaches identify early and keep a close eye on, because it’s rare to find a big man with skills. In early June, Lejeune attended an invite-only weekend tryout in North Vancouver for Team B.C.’s U-15 squad. Against a field of 40 players, he was chosen to fill one of 12 spots on a provincial team that will represent B.C. at nationals in Toronto in August. “There were 10 guys there ranging between sixfoot-five and six-foot-eight,” Lejeune said. “Four of us ending up getting picked, and I have to say, in the tryouts I think I just sucked. But in the scrimmage I got

out in transition and dunked a couple times. I have that athleticism and ability to run the floor and I think they liked that.” Lejeune was told immediately after the final practice that he’d made the grade — a significant first step for the teenager, and proof that if he applies his physical gifts, this sport can take him places. “I’ve always been into sports, and I’ve always been coordinated enough to play a lot of them well,” Lejeune said. “But I realized in Grade 8 that hoops was my forte. It’s getting serious now where I’ve quit soccer to be a one sport guy, play basketball and see where it takes me.” Lejeune figured out early that he’d have genetics on his side. His dad, John, stands six-foot-five and his mom, Tara, measures taller than six feet. Able to stand eyeball to eyeball with John for the first time, Lejeune thinks maybe he isn’t done growing.

“I’m kind of hoping for six-foot-10 or 11,” he said. But it takes more than height and when Lejeune talks about taking hoops seriously, he’s serious. Most weeks he invests nearly 30 hours into practices, games and weight training. The U-15 process involves weeknight trips to Vancouver and weekend trips to places like Seattle and Las Vegas. Lejeune’s team went 4-0 at a July longweekend tournament in Lynden (Washington). “This week I’ve got a practice today, a game tomorrow, a practice after that,” he said. “Practice. Practice. Practice. They’re all two-and-a-half hours and you’ve got travel time and stuff.” A social life is nearly impossible to maintain under the circumstances, making Lejeune thankful that he has very, very understanding friends. “I can’t hang out with them a lot, but they say it’s OK and they push me to do

this,” he said. “It means late nights and early mornings in the gym, working and concentrating more than I ever have in the past.” Win or lose. Start or come off the bench. Whatever the results of the U-15 experience, Lejeune believes it can only benefit him in the long run. “I hope Toronto will be an amazing experience and I hope it will open my eyes to the calibre of ball I need to play,” Lejeune said. “I hope it will show me where I’m at and where I need to go. I’m excited for it.” Next season it is a certainty he will be playing high school ball, most likely with the Sardis secondary school Falcons. He got a small taste of senior ball last year, coming up for some late season action. From the stands he looked like he belonged, and he had more than one observer asking, ‘Who is that kid?’

“It was a huge change from middle school, and it taught me a lot of stuff I need to work on. But it was also a really fun experience,” Lejeune said. “I definitely need to keep hitting the weights, but I also need to jump better, shoot more consistently and work on everything. I don’t know if I’m there yet, but I am better than I was even six months ago.” Lejeune’s upside is tremendous. If he continues to progress, and there’s little reason to believe he won’t, there’s no telling how far he may go. “I want to go to college and then whatever happens, happens,” he said. “The NBA (National Basketball Association) has never been a big goal of mine, but I would love to play in Europe.” If he accomplishes that, Lejeune could go down as one of the best to ever come out of Chilliwack.

Sports Cougar bats on fire

The Chilliwack bantam AA Cougars are off to a solid summerball start, going 4-0-1 through five games as they try to track down a provincial berth. The Cougars opened the season with an 11-1 dismantling of the Cloverdale Spurs 11-1. Playing on his home diamond at Fairfield Park, Cougar starter Tony Pharand threw a complete game, allowing only one run on two hits in five innings pitched. Ryan Petkau, Evan Kellington and Josh Anderson all went two for four at the plate with two RBI’s each. Game 2 in Abbotsford (July 5) saw a determined Abby squad down the locals 11-3, but the Cougars rebounded in Game 3, putting up 11 runs to demolish Aldergrove. Pharand pitched another stellar game allowing no runs in five-and-a-third innings pitched. Kellington picked up the last two outs. The offence explosion started in the third inning with the Cougars already up by two and runners on second and

third. Anderson came through with a clutch hit, knocking a single to push the lead to 4-0. Trent Loewen (twofor-two with two walks on the night) iced the game with a basesloaded single in the sixth. Cohen Bogart went two for four and Petkau hit a huge triple to the fence. Saturday saw the Cougars at Fairfield for a double header against North Delta. The Cougars continued their winning ways in the first game, winning 13-3. The offence picked up where it left off in Aldergrove by scoring seven runs in the first inning, with singles coming from Devyn Heggs, Zac Power and Pharand. Anderson had a double and Petkau legged out another triple. Starting pitcher Kellington allowed only one run over three innings before reliever Dan Rogers came in to close the door. The second game of the double header saw the Cougars face a more determined North Delta squad. Chilliwack’s offence opened up an 8-3 lead in the second inning, capitalizing on North Delta errors and key hits from Kaleb Loewen, Pharand and Kellington (who had four RBI’s in the game). North Delta kept chipping away at the lead only to fall short in an 11-9 loss.

White Rock whipped

Chilliwack’s midget AAA Cougars hit the road Sunday, facing the White Rock Raiders in a double-header at South Surrey Athletic Park. Derek Riediger took the mound in the opener and pitched a complete game, giving up just one run as the Cougars trounced the Raiders 11-1. Game two saw Gage Mclaren get the start. His teammates provided plenty of run support, batting through the order twice in the first inning to record

10 runs. Mclaren pitched three solid innings before turning the ball over to closer Mike Rogers. The Cougars only needed six innings to put a 15-5 mercy win on the books. The Cougars return to the road Wednesday, coming home this weekend for back-to-back doubleheaders against White Rock (Saturday) and Richmond (Sunday). With only eight games left in the regular season, Chilliwack will be looking for valuable wins in the chase for a provincial spot. Get more at http:// cmb.goalline.ca

Langley hosts junior A showcase Gary Ahuja, Black Press Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Junior Hockey League, B.C. Hockey League and B.C. Hockey announced that the World Junior A Hockey Challenge will be played at the Langley Events Centre. The tournament, which features two Canadian teams — Canada West and Canada East — the United States, Sweden, Russia and the Czech Republic, is set for Nov. 7-13. The United States have won the past three gold medals. “This is a tremendous opportunity for hockey fans in our community to watch Team Canada compete for gold in their own backyard,” said Jared Harman, the LEC’s director of facilities, who is also the co-chair of the tournament’s host committee.

“The event had been on our radar, it is a great event,” he added. “We identified that it might be a good fit.” Five communities expressed letters of interest to host the 2011 event and three submitted bids back in February. “One thing that really stood out with Langley is its venue,” said Dean McIntosh, Hockey Canada’s director of marketing and events. McIntosh, along with Hockey Canada’s Jim Hornell, and Canadian Junior Hockey League chairman Kirk Lamb, were on the three-person selection committee who made the final decision. Another factor in the decision was Langley’s central location in the Lower Mainland. “One of the goals we have ... is to provide the opportunity for NHL scouts, Central Scouting, various groups to easily access an event,” McIntosh said. “We

thought it was a great, centrally located community, which is a priority.” Also working in favour of the Langley bid was Hockey Canada’s existing healthy relationship with the BCHL. The league, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this season, approached the LEC about submitting a bid. With the tournament having been in the interior previously (Trail/Nelson in 2007 and Penticton in 2010), they wanted it in a Lower Mainland market this time, Harman said. The tournament will tie in the league’s anniversary, he added. “Langley put forward a real strong proposal to host and we feel the event can be successful not only in the stands and on the ice, but we think financially that Langley stands a great chance to leave a positive financial legacy in the

community for minor hockey,” McIntosh said. The Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance worked together with Hockey Canada to undertake a Sport Tourism Economic Assessment Model (STEAM) pro assessment, which measures the economic impact of an event on a community. The study found there to be $2.2 million in gross economic activity for last year’s championships. One of the new additions to the tournament, which was first held in 2006, is the inclusion of a CJHL Prospects Event. Forty NHL draft-eligible players from the various Canadian junior A leagues will be split into two teams and face off for the assembled scouts. Since the tournament was first held in 2006, 118 alumni of the event have been drafted by NHL teams.

U-18 Attack roll to provincial title

Chilliwack’s U-18 Attack boys made local

soccer history this weekend, taking gold at the Provincial B Cup tournament. Chilliwack FC head coach Glenn Wilson said no Chilliwackbased team has won this trophy in any age group, boys or girls, in the last decade. The Attack didn’t just win. They dominated.

The boys went 4-0 with 14 goals for and just three against. Seeded second coming into the tournament, Chilliwack swatted the seventh-seed Prince George Kodiaks 4-1 in their Thursday morning opener. Chilliwack blanked third-seeded Campbell River Marine FC 3-0 on Friday and edged

Richmond United 2-1 on Saturday. The championship game had the Attack facing an underdog squad from Nelson. Seeded fifth when the tourney started, Nelson beat Bulkley Valley (2-1), Penticton (5-0) and Thompson-Okanagan en-route to the final. In the gold-medal match, Chilliwack

brought Nelson back to Earth with a convincing 5-1 win. Nelson settled for silver with Bulkley Valley taking bronze. The tour nament was hosted in Penticton by the South Okanagan Youth Soccer Association (SOYSA). Get local soccer info online at www.chilliwackfc.com.

While local hockey fans wait for a bunch of transplanted Quesnel Millionaires to arrive at training camp, the team finally has one recognizable face. The junior A Chilliwack Chiefs acquired Josh Hansen from the Langley Rivermen on Friday in exchange for future considerations. The 19-year-old forward is a Chilliwack Minor Hockey product who is regarded as a solid two-way forward. Last season was Hansen’s first in the BCHL and he recorded nine goals and seven assists in 55 games, adding 26 penalty minutes to win him the nod as the team’s rookie of the year. Former Langley and current Chilliwack head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl is thrilled to have Hansen on his roster once again. “Josh is a hard working player who can contribute five-on-five, on the power play or killing penalties,” he said. Hansen is excited to call Prospera Centre his new hockey home. “I grew up watching the Chiefs in Chilliwack

He bid no one a last farewell, Nor even said goodbye, He was gone before we knew it And only God knows why. If all the world were ours to give We’d give it all and more, To see that loving face of his Just once more. From your loving family Ida, Angie, Randy, Amanda, Eric, Annette and Dylan

Power Recliners

Over 60 colors of fabric to choose from. Also available in leather.

JOURNEY MODEL

SPECTRA MODEL

With power reclining features and petite proportions, Journey transports you to comfort in style. A single motor opens and closes the footrest and smoothly reclines to multiple positions - all with just a touch of the built-in comfort selection switch. So if you’re seeking the luxury of a power recliner, Journey will take you there.

If you’re big on comfort, Spectra lets you live large with ease. This is contemporary styling on a grand scale - we’re talking generously proportioned and perfectly plush. And with our power reclining features, sitting back, putting your legs up and relaxing is a breeze.
