Union ups ante for faster fire response

■ W ILD W HEELS

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack needs more firefighters to mount a truly effective response, says the Chilliwack Professional Fire Fighters Association. Mayor Sharon Gaetz says they’re not in a position to add personnel because of tight budgets and lingering fallout from the recession. The union is calling on the City of Chilliwack to “rekindle” the plan to add more staff. “Recent fires have underscored the need for faster and more effective response Recent capabilities,” said Keith Corbett, President fires have of the Chilliwack underscored Professional Fire Association. the need for Fighters The Promontor y townhouse fire last faster and week was an example more effective cited where only two firefighters were on response duty initially. B.C. safety stancapabilities dards require there to be a minimum of ~ Keith four firefighters on Corbett scene before a burning structure can be entered. “Only two or three firefighters as initial responders are not enough to perform interior search and rescue in a burning structure.” A previous plan to add four professional firefighters a year was “solid recognition” of the need to play catchup, he said. It would have dramatically improved response times and rescue capabilities of the department, but the city cancelled the hirings for financial reasons. “Money cannot override public safety all the time. It cannot be the deciding factor when it comes to saving people’s lives and property,” said Lorne West, a Surrey firefighter, and a senior official with the International Association of Fire Fighters. The mayor said she was disappointed with the union’s decision to use the media to press its negotiating demands, pointing out the economic

Youth left alone with dead mother ‘invisible’ Watchdog unleashes scathing report Katie Bartel The Progress A young girl with Down syndrome, left alone with her dead mother for at least a week, was not only neglected by the system, she was invisible to it, an investigation has found. A report released Monday morning by B.C.’s child watchdog, Mary Ellen TurpelLafond, uncovered a significantly flawed system of services for children with special needs.

The report was the result of an investigation into the case of a 15-year-old Chilliwack girl with Down syndrome and other special needs who was found at home alone on Sept. 14, 2010 with the decomposing body of her dead mother who had been deceased for several days. “Many people in our province were saddened and outraged when they heard of these events, but equally sad and outrageous is what we found

when we scrutinized the circumstances in which she lived most of her life, especially the three years before the injury,” said Turpel-Lafond. The report found the girl was eligible for a range of supports, but received few. Her physical and medical needs were not adequately assessed. Her hearing was compromised with outdated and notworking hearing aids, to the point where one care worker believed her to be deaf and did not investigate further. There was no comprehensive or collaborative plan in place for this

child’s development or for her future. “She was all but invisible to service providers who should have been focused on her wellbeing,” said Turpel-Lafond. “Her significant needs were neglected by many people for weeks and months before her mother’s death. The system of services and supports that was supposed to help her thrive was passive. And the result was long-term neglect.” The girl’s mother also had complex medical needs, struggled with addictions, and lived Continued: REPORT/ p8

Pot store was no ‘compassion clinic,’ say police The Progress A pot store raided in downtown Chilliwack last week was posing as a medical marijuana clinic. Be Kind Medical Clinic opened last Monday on Yale Road near Five Corners and took officials by surprise before it was shut down completely a couple days later. “I can’t comment on the intention of this operation or why it was presented in a nefarious manner,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “We took action as soon as we received the information.”

A no-occupancy order was issued for the building soon after the police raid on Wednesday unearthed bags of marijuana and equipment for making pot oil and other products. “Ultimately, the business was being operated under the guise of a medicinal marijuana compassion club where marijuana, marijuana oils, and related products were being offered for sale,” said RCMP Cpl. Kurt Bosnell. The storefront operation had been advertised online as a ‘compassion club’ for medical marijuana licence holders, claiming doctors and a pharmacist would be on-site.

Surrey shooting victim was on bail for Chilliwack home invasion

Within two days drug charges including possession for the purposes of trafficking, and trafficking were pending for a 41-year-old Abbotsford man who was arrested at the site. Police executed a search warrant and seized between four and five pounds of bud at the storefront location on Yale Road near Five Corners. It appeared to investigators that the extracted pot oils were being used in food production which included chocolate, lollipops, and edible hashish. Some had been packaged for re-sale.

There was no indication on the paperwork that part of the plan was to start a “compassion club” for medical marijuana licensees, but the words “healthcare/medicine” were listed by the applicant on the business licence application form. “If they had mentioned their true intent, we would have researched it and told them it was illegal,” Gaetz said. Now the landlord and owner of the storefront building will be left “holding the bag,” she said. “The business was not licensed by Health Canada to distribute or sell marijuana to the public and was

Kevin Diakiw Black Press The man killed in a gang-related shooting in North Surrey Friday was released on bail last year for his role in a Chilliwack home invasion. Police have identified the deceased as 24-year-old Christopher Reddy, who was a resident of Vancouver with family living in Surrey. Witnesses said they heard between 12 and 20 gun shots in rapid succession near 131 Street and 111 Avenue on Friday at about 3:40 p.m. Police arrived to find a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Officers began CPR on the victim, but he succumbed to his injuries. RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen said Friday the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) took over the case as the shooting appears to be gang-related. The victim was well-known to police throughout the Lower Mainland, Thiessen said. In 2006, Reddy was charged in a home invasion in Chilliwack, where he broke into a home, beat a man and held a gun to the man’s wife. Reddy and two masked men armed with handguns and a sawed-off shotgun, broke into the home on Chilliwack Lake Road, believing there was a marijuana grow operation inside. There wasn’t. But the 46-year-old homeowner put up such a violent struggle that he was tied up and pistol-whipped, and his 36-year-old wife had a gun pointed to her head as she was dragged around the house by her hair. Reddy pleaded guilty to break-and-enter, robbery with a firearm, unlawful confinement, wearing a mask in the commission of a crime, and assault. He did not plead guilty to assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, pointing a firearm, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and uttering threats. The trial faced almost four years in delays while Reddy appealed a 2005 weapons charge. His appeal was heard and he was acquitted on those charges. Because of those delays, the judge feared Reddy would not see trial on the break and enter charges, so in an unusual move, she released him on bail last year on the condition that he return to Surrey to live with his mother until his next court date.

found to be an illegal marijuana trafficking operation that was operating as a storefront business,” said Cpl. Bosnell. The city is also in the process of stripping the venture of its business licence. “We will have to make sure the building is safe first,” Gaetz said. Almost pure isopropyl alcohol was found in the lab, and the oil extraction process is “extremely” dangerous. “We’re just lucky we didn’t have an explosion,” she said.

Michael Audet is returning to the Chilliwack school district – as superintendent. The former assistant superintendent, who after 29 years with the school district retired at the end of 2010, has been rehired temporarily by the Chilliwack Board of Education as superintendent. Audet will be replacing superintendent Corinne McCabe almost immediately on a one-year contract. McCabe, who had initially set November as her retirement date, has moved up the date to July 31 at the request of the board. Audet will take over Aug. 1. The board felt a summer transition of the superintendent would provide the district with a greater opportunity for consistency of district operations. “We felt it was most important that we had someone in place for school start up who would be able to take the school district through the entire 2011-2012 school year,” said board chair Doug McKay. “With Corinne leaving in November, that wasn’t going to happen.” Also, because this is an election year, trustees felt the new board, elected in November, should choose the next superintendent. The board contacted Audet, believing he was their best option for an interim replacement given his long history with the school district. As well, by hiring him, no other jobs in the district would be disrupted. “We wanted to disrupt the school district as little as we possibly could,” said McKay. “And if in fact we were to offer the opportunity to either one of the present assistant superintendents, we would have had to backfill their positions for a year. Now, no one else’s job is interrupted.” The board will begin their search for a permanent superintendent in January 2012. kbartel@theprogress.com

Family, friends remember Betty Fox Todd Coyne Black Press Nearly 30 years to the day since a community and a country came together to grieve the death of Terry Fox, mourners gathered at the same Port Coquitlam church on Saturday to say goodbye to his mom, Betty. Betty died in Chilliwack on June 17 after suffering with diabetes and arthritis. She was 73. The Fox family and fellow mourners filed into the 300-seat Trinity United Church in the pouring rain behind the blue quilt-draped casket bearing their mother, grandmother, wife and friend. B.C. Premier Christy Clark told reporters outside the church that she had cut short her travels between Toronto, Ottawa and Yellowknife to be at the funeral Saturday. “The importance of giving back to community, the importance of being a good citizen and doing good for the people around you that you love and making the world a little bit better when you leave than when you started, Betty was a living example of that,” Premier Clark said. “In a country and a world where we need good citizens, Betty set the best example.” Across town, about

100 mourners gathered at the Port Coquitlam recreation centre to remember Fox and watch a live broadcast of the funeral service. Two books of condolences sat at a table inside the rec centre: one with messages from mourners at the centre that day, the other containing emails of condolence from as far away as England and Abu Dhabi. “You’ve done so much for our family. Thank you,” wrote one woman. Mourners began arriving at the recreation centre as early as noon to get a seat for the 1 p.m. ceremony, one couple saying they had been turned away from the church because it was full, others saying they came directly to the recreation centre to avoid the crowds and respect the Fox family’s privacy at the Prairie Avenue church. Mourners at both memorial sites were met with white-gloved Port Coquitlam firefighters whom the city had called upon to attend the ceremonies. Inside the small church, Rev. Brian Burke described Fox as “a wonderful woman, a courageous leader of this community.” Before him sat the Fox family, Premier Clark, BC NDP leader Adrian Dix, health critic and Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth, Vancouver Olympic Games CEO John Furlong, Coquitlam mayor Richard Stewart and family friend Rick Hansen, whose 1985 Man in Motion tour to

raise money for spinal cord injury research was inspired by his friend Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope five years earlier. “Being at the annual Terry Fox runs in Port Coquitlam and just seeing her as the loving beautiful mother who would not let that dream die and inspiring all of us to continue is something that will always be with me at every moment,” Hansen told reporters after the ceremony. “She’s been an amazing leader in our country and in our world... and she’ll be greatly missed by all of us.” Betty, who raised hundreds of millions of dollars for cancer research in the three decades since her son’s death from the disease, was remembered by family inside the church less as a national hero and more as a mom and grandmother. Kirsten Fox, one of nine grandchildren who each took a turn standing before the congregation to read one of the thousands of letters of support received by the family since Betty’s death, tearfully remembered her grandmother as a funny, loving and humble woman. “It’s hard to separate Betty Fox from the identity of Terry Fox’s mother, but we grandkids never thought of her that way,” she said, adding that she asked the other grandkids about how they remembered their grandmother. “None of us said, ‘She raised a hero.’ We think Continued: FOX/ p5

FOX from p4 of her as grandma.” It was the revelation of that human side of Betty that both Mayor Stewart and John Furlong said they found most touching about the ceremony. “I hate going to funerals and finding out stuff I wish I’d known before,” Mayor Stewart said, adding that “her humanity” was what he would remember most about the service. John Furlong, CEO of the Vancouver Olympics at which Betty had been a torchbearer for the opening ceremonies, echoed that feeling, calling the ceremony a simple, beautiful and easy tribute. “We lost a great Canadian,” he said, adding, “I doubt there is a human on this planet who has done as much for the cause of beating cancer as this woman.” Shortly before 3 p.m., Betty’s casket was carried back out of the church into the rain, followed by husband Rolly, son Darrell, and placed in a black hearse adorned with two Canadian flags. Betty Fox will be interred at the Port Coquitlam cemetery, near her son Terry.

R AESIDE

Good choice for London The federal government is expected to announce that former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell will be Canada’s next high commissioner to Great Britain (in other words, the ambassador). While this has caused some snarky comments in B.C., where Campbell’s popularity remains on par with a snake’s belly, this is a good appointment. Campbell served as B.C. premier for nine years, and was the first premier since Bill Bennett to win three consecutive terms in office. He did so during some challenging times. When he assumed office in 2001, the B.C. economy was coming out of a recession and badly needed a shot of confidence. When he stepped down earlier this year, the economy had weathered another recession, although it may not weather the fury over the HST, which cost Campbell his job and may well cost his party the government. While he obviously blew it with the HST on many levels, Campbell’s overall track record on job creation, economic development, infrastructure, the 2010 Winter Olympics and debt management was quite good. Perhaps most importantly, he is a visionary — he isn’t afraid to think differently, and while he sometimes gets off base, he often has the ability to see a new approach to a problem. The former premier has a good reputation among those he worked with over the years, from cabinet ministers to fellow premiers and the prime minister. He worked very well with the federal government on many issues. He wouldn’t have been asked to do this job if the current Conservative government didn’t see something he can bring to it. He joins former Manitoba premier Gary Doer (a former NDP premier, in fact) as an ambassador. Doer was named ambassador to the United States by the Stephen Harper government in 2009. While those who are upset with the BC Liberals may not like this appointment, they need to look beyond provincial politics. Campbell is a capable individual who will represent Canada very well in the U.K., which remains a very important trading partner and one of Canada’s major allies in Europe. It is also home to our system of government and the Royal Family, who remain strongly linked to Canada. He is a deserving candidate for this appointment. It is very significant that a former B.C. premier will take up this important post. ~ Black Press

Excitement builds as Royals ready for Canada No doubt, Will and Kate will draw huge crowds when they arrive in Canada on Thursday. Their tour starts in Ottawa June 30th for Canada Day then takes them to Quebec, P.E.I., N.W.T., and Alberta before leaving for California July 8th. As the iconic, hugely popular newlyweds with a relaxed, modern style, Prince William and Catherine, or more formally the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will set a precedent in economy travel and regal flair. Prince William has always been a hugely popular figurehead in the pecking order of royals but you can bet that eyes and paparazzi lenses are going to be on Catherine. Born, raised and grounded in the middle class masses, she’s cultured her own amazing poise, natural beauty and fashion sense only surpassed

by her common sense. She’s got that rare wow factor. She’s so confident in choosing her own wardrobe and controlling her own style that she has decided not to be accompanied by a dresser, or lady-in-waiting, Margaret for this first stepping out on official EVANS overseas duties. She’s quoted in the U.K.’s Daily Mail as saying having a dresser would be “a waste of money” and that she doesn’t want to be “seen as a clothes horse”. But included in the seven-member support team made up of personal aides and press/private secretaries is her hairdresser James Pryce. Traditional royal protocol has

dictated that they don’t wear the same outfit twice in public, or at least very rarely. Catherine’s already bucking that trend and getting fun and value from her wardrobe. Too bad the British tabloids are nicknaming her the ‘discount duchess’. But good on her for sticking with instincts. Truth is, she’s heading for the stratosphere as a fashion icon and her style is mimicked by millions. When President Barak Obama and the First Lady visited the U.K. recently, Catherine dressed in a demure caramel Shola dress in a modified bandage design from the high street, clean-styled, trendy Reiss chain. Within hours, they sold out and their website crashed. When the couple step onto Canadian soil, they will set a whole new tone and apparently

they want to keep this visit loose and casual. Given their agenda, good idea. Their itinerar y is packed. They’ll be part of Canada Day celebrations, congratulating newly minted Canadians and acknowledging soldiers by video link in Afghanistan. They will meet veterans and war brides, travel by frigate to Quebec City, visit P.E.I. (Catherine’s an Anne of Green Gables fan), and compete in a dragon boat race. Then they will jet to Yellowknife and travel by float plane to remote Blachford Lake where they’ll spend time around a camp fire with First Nations’ students and elders, enjoy a canoe trip, tuck into a BBQ and watch native dancing. The final leg of the trip ends up at a 10-gallon cowboy hat welcome in Calgary where the Stampede will kick off and

the royal pair will be expected to show up in jeans. Maybe that’s why Catherine was seen recently darting into London’s Trilogy jeans store to grab a pair of the hottest jeans in town, some mid-rise skinnies in hothouse tomato red. When they arrive in California, they’ll do the L.A. glitz dinners and Prince William is expected to compete in a charity polo match organized by the Santa Barbara Polo Club. This is the hottest ticket in town and members are said to be donating up to $100,000 each to the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry for the privilege. The foundation raises funds to support the injured and psychologically damaged veterans of the Armed Forces, help needy young people and provide financial support to African villages stricken with poverty.

Logging takes toll of valley family I am sitting here at 7 a.m. writing this letter when I should be sleeping in. Saturday is the only day that we have that option in this house. Why am I awake at 7 a.m. on a Saturday you ask? Well let’s see, our family was awoken by the melodious sounds of the helicopter that has been logging the mountains in our valley daily. Every morning at 7 a.m.! We don’t particularly enjoy listening to the helicopter every morning at breakfast and on the rare occasion these days when we can barbecue and sit out on our deck for dinner. Trying to talk above the whirring noise and ask the kids how their day was isn’t my favourite thing to do. We put a lot of time and money into our deck and now we can’t enjoy it. It’s not the fact that I am awake, or that my deck is unused that has me most angered, it is an accumulation of this entire

business! The continuous logging has driven the wildlife out of their habitat and into the residential areas where, I don’t know about everyone else, but they are eating everything that we have grown. Anything that is not in a greenhouse is fair game to the deer. In the last 21 years that my family has lived in the Chilliwack River Valley, there has never been a deer problem. An occasional foot print here and there in the garden, but this year? It is a near daily event to be shooing them off of the property, but the damage has been done because they have been eating since 5 a.m. So if the deer are here, when bear season starts I will not be able to allow my children to play in their own back yard. Forget the sunscreen, I’ll strap a blow horn to each of their necks and arm them with some bear spray so they can get some fresh air and enjoy their summer vacation. The logging trucks, these are

my greatest concern! The speed limit here is 60km, I have been passed by logging trucks (loaded) while doing the speed limit! There is no regard for the safety of this community!! Our road is not especially wide, there are pedestrians on the side of the road and there are children who stand at the road and wait for the bus! When the trucks go flying up and down this road at 7 a.m. on a school day, it is still dark out some months of the year and the kids are standing out in the dark waiting for their bus!! There is no one to hold these drivers responsible! Maybe I am cranky because I didn’t get my sleep in day, but really it is time for some accountability! I understand that we need to keep our economic head above water but at what cost? S. Brubaker

Too many Cultus Lake geese I recently visited the Cultus Lake Main Beach with my family as we have every year for the past few years. I am disgusted at the uncleanliness we found. There was not one area of the beach or grassy area that wasn’t covered in goose feces. As I, too, am a proud Canadian and understand that the Canada goose is an iconic symbol of this nation, I

believe the protection of this animal has created an over populated nuisance. They congregate on our golf courses and beaches and parks and defecate all over, creating a hazardous environment for all. I could not step anywhere without having to avoid a pile of unsanitary, possibly disease laden goose droppings. Do we not have ways to have these birds rout-

ed somewhere they can roam without causing unsafe, unclean environments for our children and citizens? At the very least we should have parks crews cleaning up the areas daily so we can use our parks without having to deal with this mess. Every year I see the same mess with no effort to clean up the area. I understand that these birds are protect-

ed, but surely we can do better than let them run wild on public beaches where young children go to enjoy playing and swimming and picnicking. I rarely complain about issues with government departments but our parks and rec department has definitely let this one fly the coop! M. Dunbar

Unionized workers not the bad guys I am writing out of concern for how the Conservative government is dealing with our postal workers. The government has tabled legislation that would give them a lower wage than Canada Post itself had offered. In addition they are contemplating back to work legislation that denies workers the right to freely collectively bargain. I would like to ask our local

MP whether he is against free collective bargaining. If he supports workers right to collectively bargain I call on him to speak out against his government’s actions. The tone of the government towards working people in Canada is very disappointing. They continually use rhetoric about big union bosses. It seems they forget that unions are democratic institutions. We elect our

leaders in the union movement to represent us. To treat our leaders with such derision is to treat workers with derision. Over 30 per cent of Canadians are unionized. We have fought for and won that right. Please treat us with the respect you seem to reserve for business owners. We are no more, and no less, than them. John-Henry Harter

Plea for help finding stolen computer Robert Freeman The Progress The theft of a computer during a home breakin last Friday, coupled with the impact of the Canada Post strike, is causing financial woes for the owner of a trucking business in Sardis. Tami Zall, the daughter of the businessman, is asking anyone with information about the break-in or the computer to please call the Chilliwack RCMP. “He lost all of his company information, and he had no back-up files,” she said. “A new computer isn’t hard to get, but what’s on it is.” Zall said her father was away on a business trip, when the breakin occurred sometime Friday night. The thieves ransacked every room of the Unsworth Road home, including the bathroom and her daughter’s bedroom. “They were looking absolutely everywhere, even going through

our clothes,” Zall said, before finally taking off with the computer, a television and a Sanyo camcorder, with video of her when she was pregnant with her daughter. But she said the main thing is her father’s

City officials always have to “weigh the risk” in making annual budgeting decisions around funding. “The union needs to understand that things can’t happen all at once,” she said. “There is no doubt they care about public safety, as much as we do.

With 130 paid oncall firefighters proudly serving alongside 27 full-timers, Chilliwack has something other communities cannot claim to have. “I was glad to see the union recognizing the role on-call firefighters play in this community,” she said. “This is something not found in other communities.”

STAFF from Front turmoil over the past few years meant the city was forced to put those hirings on the shelf. “We had this little thing called the recession, and it put a lot of our plans on hold, like the library as well,” she said. Nine per cent of the city budget currently goes to fire protection services and the Chilliwack Fire Department, which is “a huge chunk,” Gaetz underlined. If they doubled every budget area, Chilliwack would be faced with a 100 per cent tax increase, the mayor warned. The department has added staff steadily over the years, as well as new equipment, and a new fire hall in Sardis. “Since 2000 they’ve gone from 13 members to 32,” Gaetz said, which should indicate to the residents that fire protection remains “a priority” for the city. “But there are limitations to what we can ask of the taxpayer.” The union has formally asked for 16 more firefighters, in part to be able to meet the fourfirefighter standard for entering burning structures. It would mean an extra $1.48 million. West also notes that building fire department resources and response capability doesn’t necessarily need to result in a tax increase, if public safety is recognized as a priority and existing municipal revenues are redirected to the fire department. “It’s quite possible that two of the city’s stations could be staffed full-time with enough firefighters to respond in four minutes to much of the city with enough personnel to conduct interior search and rescue the moment they

Homeowner holds break-in suspect for cops

Comment online at www.theprogress.com

A Chilliwack homeowner grappled with an intruder who broke into his garage early Sunday morning, and held him until police arrived. But police are advising homeowners not to take the law into their own hands. “Someone who is breaking into your house likely has weapons with them in order to follow through with their intentions,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. The homeowner in this case was not injured, but “the potential was there,” she said. Awakened by a house alarm, the homeowner heard someone rummaging through his garage and went out to confront the intruder. The pair were on the street, with the homeowner trying to hold the suspect, when police arrived. A 31-year-old Chilliwack man arrested at the scene is facing charges.

Progress Katie

Bartel 604.702.5575 • kbartel@theprogress.com

Seven-year-old Jaeda Sanada, and mom Leah, together came up with the idea to sell paper cranes to raise money for the victims of the March 11 earthquake in Japan. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Jaeda and the one thousand paper cranes Katie Bartel The Progress The story of a sick Japanese girl attempting to fold one thousand paper cranes before her death was the launching pad for a Chilliwack fundraiser. Seven-year-old Jaeda Sanada, who lives in Japan, but is staying with her maternal grandparents in Chilliwack, wanted to do something for her friends and family still living in the aftermath of the earthquake that hit the east coast of Japan on March 11. Upon Jaeda’s encouragement – using the story of Sadako Sasaki – three Grade 1 classes at Unsworth elementary folded and sold origami cranes in support of the Canadian Red Cross. Sadako was a young Japanese girl in the 1950s who had been diagnosed with leukemia, “radiation sickness,” after the atomic bomb. As the story goes, she wanted to fold 1,000 paper cranes before her death, but came up short. Her friends and family fulfilled her wish. In total, the Grade 1 classes at Unsworth elementary folded approximately 380 paper cranes

and raised $756 for Japanese relief. ❖❖❖

On March 11 Leah Sanada was driving her daughter Jaeda home from school in Ichikawa, Japan, just outside Tokyo, when she felt the truck trembling. Stopped at a red light, she thought Jaeda was tapping her feet in the backseat. But when the shaking intensified, and she saw power line posts violently swaying, and a girl on the sidewalk being blown around like a rag doll, she knew her adopted country was experiencing another earthquake. Like the others, she thought the shaking would stop. It didn’t. An 8.9-magnitude earthquake had struck Japan’s east coast – 200 kilometres outside Ichikawa – which resulted in a tsunami with waves as high as 124 feet crashing down on the country minutes later. “It felt like the wheels were coming off the truck, it was unreal,” Leah said. “I didn’t know what to do.” While she’d experienced several earthquakes since moving to

the country in 1998, she’d usually been at home. The truck was new territory. “It just kept getting bigger and bigger,” she said. “What if the road opened up in front of me, what was I supposed to do?” She tried to mask her fear and be brave for her daughter scared in the backseat. With a mother’s comfort, she repeatedly told Jaeda everything would be okay. As the other vehicles moved forward, Leah began to inch her own vehicle forward. When she arrived home, people from the apartment buildings nearby were outside on the grass, neighbours, with their doors flung wide open, protectively held their TVs. When she opened the door to their house, their toy poodle,

skittish, shot outside. Their wall decorations laid shattered on the ground. Their fish tank had just an inch of water left inside, the rest flooding their floors. “It was scary,” said Jaeda, her voice almost muted. “I didn’t want to go inside because what if the house falls down.” T h e shaking continued for days. They didn’t know if it was aftershocks or if it was e a r t h q u a k e sickness. “It was like being on a boat; our heads kept shaking,” said Leah. They feared another massive earthquake. They tied their furniture close to the walls, and had even tied all the doors open, making sure they wouldn’t slam shut and trap them in. Chemical explosions had them holed up inside for days. With the

instability of the nuclear plant and predictions of another earthquake and tsunami closer to home, Leah and her husband made the decision for Leah, Jaeda and their dog to seek safety in Chilliwack with Leah’s parents. She thought they’d be here for two weeks. That was more than three months ago. “They’re still shaking quite a lot,” said Leah, who talks with her husband and checks status reports regularly. “It’s nothing really big, but it’s still very unnerving. We were hoping they would get things under control by now.” With over 25,000 killed or missing, more than 5,000 injured and more than 188,000 people displaced from their homes, this earthquake is Japan’s worst disaster in recent history. The crane represents happiness and long life in Japanese folklore. For everyone who folds a paper crane, a wish is granted. Jaeda wished her friends had a safe haven just like her. “We wanted to send good luck to all the people worse off than us,” said Leah. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Looking for relaxation? You’ll be soaking it up in Harrison. Soothing mineral waters drawn from the nearby hot springs infuse the waters of the public pool in this sublime lakeside town. And the Harrison Festival of the Arts

Society has immersed the resort town in culture – one concert at a time – by pulling in music acts from around the world. To see the town at its best, take the kids to the annual Children’s Festival during the popular summer festival, or enjoy one of

the many concerts held in the intimate Harrison Memorial Hall. Hiking trails, campgrounds and water sports also abound, with 200 kms of shoreline and several smaller outlying lakes and waterfalls.

The quaint community of Yarrow harkens back to the late 1920s and goes to great pains to preserve much of the look and feel of that time along its main street, Yarrow Central Road. And for good reason. Yarrow’s existence was hard won. Sitting on the eastern edge of what once was the massive Sumas Lake, Yarrow was British Columbia’s first Mennonite community. The lake was drained as part of a major project to control flooding in the valley and to create farmland. The town became

As the work week draws to a close, what better way to reconnect with the family than listening to live music at Central Community Park. Every Friday evening throughout the summer the park comes alive with Party In The Park. Bring a lawn chair, grab the kids and sit back and enjoy the entertainment. Hosted by Chilliwack Downtown BIA and this year sponsored by Coast Capital Savings, the event has become a summertime favourite. Throughout the summer neighbours meet neighbours as they pick through baskets of fresh local produce and whimsical crafts courtesy of the Farmers’ Market. They line the grassy surroundings of the park and listen to the live, local music coming from the main stage. They meander through the kids area, trying a bit of this and a bit of that. And the best thing is, there is no ticket to buy. Just come and be yourself. Popular entertainer and musician Trevor McDonald is coordinating the entertainment that will light up the stage and have you dancing until the end. Last year, special theme nights proved so popular organizers are bringing them back this year. For each of the eight nights, there will be a different theme. Watch for special themed nights and band line-ups on the Party in the Park Facebook page or in the Chilliwack Progress. Visitors from all over Chilliwack, as well as surrounding communities, come to Central Community Park to enjoy our wonderful party. This party will continue during the summer of 2011 so plan to join the party and catch the excitement. Central Community Park is located at the corner of Victoria and Young in Downtown Chilliwack.

There’s something special around every corner at Minter Gardens.

Minter’s garden delight Classic Car Show set for July 17 Call it a little piece of paradise right here in the Fraser Valley. Minter Gardens is a show piece of gardening splendor. The 12 themed gardens are designed to dazzle the senses with massive displays of artistic floral designs, many complemented by stunning water displays. But flowers are not the only thing you’ll find. On July 17 the Fraser Valley British Motor Club is partnering with Minter Gardens for its annual Classic Car Show. More than 100 mint condition, classic cars will

be nestled around the garden’s 32 acres. North American beauties and shining imports will be entered into eight different categories based on the origin and era of the car. A ninth ‘Premier Class’ category features the first place winners of each category from the last two shows. There will also be a ‘People’s Choice’ award for the vehicle that visitors feel is the most outstanding addition to the show. The People’s Choice winner earns the honour of becoming the Feature Car for next year’s show, so come on out and cast your

senses!

Summer Clearance ON NOW

Chilliwack’s evening skyline is always magnificent, with Cheam’s peaks glowing pink and purple as the sun sets. But for one night each year, the view is even more spectacular. Some might even call it magical. It happens around midsummer, the night before the annual Flight Fest. As the hot summer daylight fades into black, and crowds gather for a barbecue and dance in the airport hangar and a dazzling display that signals the start of Chilliwack’s premier aviation event. Flight Fest (August 20 and 21) is one of the last free air shows in all of North America, and begins with a pancake breakfast at the airport, at 8 a.m. At 11 a.m., the public is invited to a pre-show that includes several static displays, from military helicopters to remote controlled aircraft. At 1 p.m., the air show begins in earnest with a spectacular display of flying wizardry. The full line-up is sure to please any air show fan. And for those coming to Flight Fest for the first time, listen for the announcer to guide you through all the motions and history of the aircraft as they loop, spin and soar overhead. There’s even a Kid’s Landing, designed to keep the littlest aviation fans busy for the day. There are a few things to remember as you head out for the Flight Fest, including lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on, jacket, camera, binoculars, comfy shoes, money for concession stands and souvenirs, sunscreen, sunglasses and an umbrella.

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Surgery sprint leads to chemo marathon Eric J. Welsh, The Progress It’s the question no one wants to ask, but the question that can’t be ignored. So you ask it in a mumbly sort of voice, avoiding eye contact because the subject is so very, very uncomfortable. “Have you thought about, you know, the worst case scenario?” Any bit of levity is instantly sucked out of the room as they stop to ponder the question. It’s not like they haven’t thought about it hundreds, maybe thousands, of times over the last year. But to say it out loud, to admit it’s a possibility. That’s something different. It seems like an eternity before one of them finally answers. “I think about it all the time.” The voice doesn’t belong to Kyle Lorteau, which is surprising, given all that has happened to him. Diagnosed last year with an extremely rare form of childhood cancer, given slim odds of survival and now ploughing through 46 weeks of chemotherapy, the 17-year-old is the one you’d expect to be most preoccupied with worstcase scenarios. Yet he seems least bothered by the idea of death. It is parents Chad and Flora who’ve been consumed by the thought that Kyle might lose this battle with cancer. Chad has refused to openly consider the possibility that his son might die, keeping a sunny outlook even as Kyle’s, and by extension his own, world has fallen apart. He surmised early on that it wasn’t going to help Kyle to be surrounded by negativity, so Chad bottled things up. “Everything was so devastating to me, but where do you go and what do you say, knowing it does him no good if you’re messed up?” he said. As Kyle’s weight dropped from 155 pounds down to a reed-thin 125, he stayed upbeat. As Kyle leaned over a toilet bowl in the dark of night, puking his guts out, Chad stayed upbeat, fighting with every fibre of his being the urge to put his fist through a wall. But such things aren’t meant to be bottled up, and Chad paid the price five months ago in the form of a mild heart-attack. Flora tried to be positive. She really did. In the daytime she could stay busy with work and keep her mind occupied. But her nights were haunted by thoughts she couldn’t escape. When she wasn’t sneaking into Kyle’s room to check his breathing she was lying awake in bed, staring at the ceiling. Sleep offered no respite. “He (Chad) denied so much,

Kyle Lorteau hasn’t had much to smile about over the last year, but the cards and drawings from friends and family that adorn his room in Chilliwack always get a grin. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

refusing to believe the thought of having to bury a child, but that thought was in my nightmares, and I’d wake up screaming because I’d already planned his funeral in my dreams,” she said. “I’d be crying in bed thinking he was already gone.” Whether from teenage bravado or well-executed denial, Kyle said the idea of dying rarely entered his head. Through it all, the diagnosis and surgery and chemo, the most pressing matter wasn’t whether he’d make it through alive. He worried about his eyebrows. “I’ve seen the pranks where those kids get their eyebrows shaved off at a party and I was thinking, ‘No way! That’s not going to be me,’” he exclaimed. “It’s weird I guess, but I was scared to death about the eyebrows.” He needn’t have worried. The eyebrows were spared the ravages of chemotherapy. But each week the IV drip fed toxins into him provided something new to think about, a gutchurning reminder that eyebrows were truly the least of his worries. Kyle went into the process with a head full of thick and curly hair, only to find it falling out a few weeks into treatment. He scratched his head and saw hair on his hand. It’s not like he didn’t know it was coming, but it was jarring nonetheless. “I was like, ‘Oh. This is how it happens,’” Kyle said. “He went into the bathroom to have a shower and all of a sudden it was, ‘Mom! My hair’s falling

out,’” Flora added. “I looked at it, and then I went to my bedroom and started bawling. That’s when it got real.” Going into chemo, the Lorteaus were handed dossiers on all the various drugs and all their various side effects. Hair loss was well known and expected, but Flora didn’t become a neurotic mess until she flipped through a binder filled with page after page of nasty information. On their own, drugs like Vincristine and Cyclo were bad enough. But Kyle’s aggressive cancer required aggressive treatment. His 46 week regimen was four longer than the usual, with more drugs involved. His doctors felt they had no other choice but to throw everything they had at the cancer. “The first two weeks it was just Vincristine, but then it was that one plus two others (Cyclo and Dactinomysinn) and they all just drained me to the point where I didn’t even want to move,” Kyle said. “When I had all three I stayed at the hospital two nights, and every two hours, they’d wake me up to take me to the washroom. There was puking and it was just awful. So, hearing I had cancer, that sucked. The surgery sucked. But the worst feeling for me was just being in a hospital for any length of time. I can’t even breathe in hospitals.” Hospital smells can make anyone’s stomach queasy, but for chemo patients the odors wafting up and down the hallways are nearly unbearable.

When the lunch and dinner trays started making the rounds, he demanded, strongly, that his door be shut. His appetite sapped, Kyle sent his mom to Safeway with an order that made sense in his head only to find the delivered product nauseainducing. “What they do with some people when smells make them nauseous is they give them different flavours of Jolly Ranchers, like root beer,” Kyle said. “So you don’t feel sick because of bad smells, but you end up hating root beer. I didn’t want to do that because I really like root beer.” What made any of this even remotely tolerable was the people at Children’s Hospital — doctors, nurses and staff committed to taking a real bad situation and making it as good as possible. The biggest reality check you could ever have, Chad said, is visiting the oncology ward on a regular basis and witnessing first-hand the life-and-death struggle being waged there by children who should never have to face such things. “The people there, they make you smile in your deepest, darkest moments,” Flora added. “They make you feel good. They make your kid feel good and they make you feel safe.” And they arrange for you to go to professional basketball games. On Oct. 6 of last year the Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors met for a pre-season National Basketball Association game at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

Kyle and eight other patients sat wide-eyed on the sidelines gawking at the little Canadian point guard with the Suns, a two time league MVP. Steve Nash. Steve freakin Nash! “I watched everything he did in his warmup, because he does the same three or four things over and over again,” Kyle said with a mile-wide grin. “And I stole one of his things for my warmup. He kept practising his floater shot, and I stole it, because it was pretty effective that night.” The Suns lost the game 12978, a disappointing result for the Victoria native. Nash might have felt better had he known how much hope and inspiration he’d provided to a teenager who desperately needed a lift. Kyle went back to Chilliwack that night filled with optimism. He grabbed his basketball the next day and practiced floaters, picturing himself as No. 13 in the purple jersey. As he danced past Spurs and Lakers in his daydreams, for a few blessed moments, he was able to forget. Five days later he was back in the hospital, sullenly staring at an IV drip that seemed to silently taunt. Nine months to go kid. Cancer’s not through with you yet. This is the third in a four-part series that wraps up in the Thursday, June 30 edition of the Chilliwack Progress sports section.

Softball City will be the premier destination, and games will also be played at Sunnyside Park and Cloverdale Athletic Park. The Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch championship is one of the top three women’s fastpitch events in the world for 2011, and will feature more than 400 ball games, 1,300 athletes and 80 teams from around the world. “This event is important to the game on so many levels,” said Softball Canada president Kevin Quinn. “To all the players, through all the divisions, it is a chance to measure yourself against the best at your level of competition in a fun, professionally organized tournament.” There will be three divisions of play – Women’s, Futures (under-19) and Showcase (under-16) – and all the International and Women’s Elite games will be held at Softball City in South Surrey.

When you decide to sell your home, your next decision is key to the sale - “How much should I ask?” If you ask too little for your home, you could lose money that you could have gotten. Asking too much for your home in today’s market with a high inventory of competitively priced homes, could cause your home to sit indefinitely. Your Realtor wants to sell your home as soon as possible, for the best price. Your Realtor will use a Comparative Market Analysis to determine the price for your home. If the market analysis is done correctly, you will get the maximum amount - and a timely sale. If buyers fail to surface after a certain period of time on the market, they may advise you to reduce the asking price. If you are serious about selling your home, you should take your Realtor’s advice. A house is only worth what someone will pay for it, even though the owner, the bank, and the Realtor all have their own opinions about the “market value” of a home. In other words, no sale ever takes place until the buyers agree with the price. How can sellers arrive at the maximum “fair” price that buyers are willing to pay? Buyers (and appraisers) make their decision based on comparisons. While shopping for a home, buyers will visit many similar homes in their price range and measure the features of each one against the price. They decide which house offers them the maximum value for the price. Buyers do not expect a home to be a “steal” or

dramatically under-priced, but they do expect it to be a fair value. Sellers must determine the value that their home offers in order to arrive at the right price. The Realtor will advise the sellers what buyers should be willing to pay for their home, but the asking price is set by the seller. Sellers often start out with an unrealistic opinion of their home’s value, and there is often a strong temptation to go with a Realtor who says what you want to hear. A good Realtor will back up their opinion of your home’s value with hard data. The Realtor should give you information about homes that are currently on the market, and recent selling prices of similar properties. The most heroic marketing efforts won’t work on a property that is over-priced. Even if you find a buyer who is willing to pay more than your home it worth, the sale will fall apart when the appraisal comes in lower than the agreedupon price. Realtors earn their reputations by helping people find homes that they love. When deciding which homes to show prospective buyers, their decision will be based on whether the home will meet their needs and priced at fair market value within their buyer’s budget.

Hello, my name is Corny Woelders, I am one of the proud owners of Landmark Realty Chilliwack. I am married and have two great kids. I grew up in Chilliwack and graduated from C.S.S.S. (a long time ago) and then moved to Abbotsford where I met my wife of 23 years. I predominately worked in the poultry and dairy industry and also ran our own Poultry Farm. I became a Realtor® a number of years ago and worked out of the Landmark Abbotsford office. However, I found myself selling a lot of homes in Chilliwack for friends and family, so when a Landmark franchise came available, my partners and I knew that Chilliwack was the place to go. Today’s low interest rates, plus low prices, plus high inventory, equals the perfect buyers market. So come on in and visit our office and I will help you with all your real estate needs.

(nee Williams) Gladys May Adams (Williams) passed away peacefully on June 24th 2011 at the Chilliwack ADAMS General Hospital, age 91 years. Gladys was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Rose and Dick Williams and moved with her family to Vancouver, B.C., then to Rosedale. She married Leonard Jack Adams on December 26th 1945 and resided in Chilliwack. Gladys will be remembered and missed by her children, Dawn Toop (Larry), Jim Adams (Arlene), Dave Adams (Patricia), Dianne Bradshaw (Dennis), Jeff Adams (Sheila), her 16 grandchildren, 18 greatgrandchildren and many nieces, nephews, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Leonard Adams on August 16th 1974 and her eldest son Glen Adams (Sylvi) May 10th 2011. Gladys was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #4. She held many offices on the Executive of the Ladies Auxiliary. She volunteered in the kitchen, did years of helping with the catering for special occasions. She worked in the Poppy Room and she loved being the President, Past President and going to Conventions. She also loved her Legion family and friends. Every Friday and Saturday we could find her in her special chair having a beer, pulling tabs and playing Keno. Thank you to all her special friends: Harry, Sylvia, Ziggy, George, Marge, Betty, Eva, and Michael. She looked forward every week to seeing them. Gladys also was the Hostess at Charleswood Catering Service for many years. She loved her “Girls Day Out” spent with her granddaughters, and forty years on the Foresters bus trips to Reno, where she was Queen of the Bus. The family would like to thank Dr. Madill and the staff members of the Chilliwack General Hospital for their care and support. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, July 2nd 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #4, 9350 Mary Street, Chilliwack. We Love You Mom, you will be forever in our hearts. Dawn, Jim, Dave, Dianne and Jeff. Henderson’s Funeral Homes & Crematorium Ltd. 45901 Victoria Avenue, Chilliwack, British Columbia (604) 792.1344
