Impaired penalties go too far, says judge

■ T REE T OPPERS

Tom Fletcher Black Press The toughest of B.C.’s new impaired driving penalties infringe people’s constitutional right to a fair trial, a B.C. Supreme Court judge has ruled. Ruling on a challenge to the new roadside penalties Wednesday, Justice Jon Sigurdson said the increased roadside penalties for blowing in the “warn” range of blood alcohol, from 0.05 to 0.08 per cent, are permissible. But drivers who blow more than 0.08 should have a chance to defend themselves in court before their vehicles are impounded for 30 days and they face thousands of dollars in administrative penalties, Sigurdson said. Imposing the most severe roadside penalties “is not a reasonable limit which is demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society,” the judgment says. Lawyer Michael Shapray told Black Press the ruling leaves the B.C. government and the police with little choice but to back down on the roadside penalties. “They’re going to have to revert back to the criminal law and take people back for breathalyzer tests at the [police] station,” Shapray said. “They’ll have a right to go to court and challenge those charges.” Sigurdson ruled that B.C. is within its rights to impose the “warn” penalties. A blood alcohol reading in the “warn” range can result in a three-day driving ban, a $200 “administrative penalty” and another $250 fee to have a driver’s licence reinstated. Drivers may also have their car impounded for three days and be billed for towing and storage. For roadside readings of 0.08 per cent or higher, police have been imposing a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impounding the vehicle for 30 days. That can cost a driver $3,750, including $700 for towing and storage and $1,420 to take a mandatory “responsible driver” course.

Jessiah Clay (left) and Jordan Grahn, along with their Grade 5/6 class from Bernard elementary, hang handmade ornaments on their Christmas tree at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel on Wednesday. A total of 10 trees, all decorated by Chilliwack students, are currently on display in the hotel lobby. One school, Vedder elementary, made their ornaments out of winter clothing to be donated to the Salvation Army, such as sock snowmen and Santas with toques. See story, page 4. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Unified Sto:lo call for war council Jennifer Feinberg The Progress A message of solidarity went out from the Sto:lo people this week to say that the Yale Treaty will not work for them. The treaty as ratified by provincial reps, could lead to an “unprecedented” level of conflict in the Fraser Canyon over fishing rights and heritage sites, warned Sto:lo leaders in a joint press release. Sto:lo of all political stripes

boarded a chartered bus in Chilliwack, and headed to a protest in North Vancouver early Wednesday morning to protect rights they say they’ve had “since time immemorial.” Protestors were asked to wear red t-shirts and bring their drums, and a Sto:lo War Council has been called into action. The disagreement stems from a declaration by the Yale First Nation that its members are distinct from the Sto:lo and therefore have a right to sign

a separate treaty for lands they claim in the Fraser Canyon. The Sto:lo dispute that, arguing the Yale cannot claim ownership of lands traditional held and never surrendered by the Sto:lo. The Wednesday morning protest was meant to send a “clear message” about Sto:lo unity to B.C. Treaty Commission Members attending the First Nations Summit meeting in North Vancouver, said Sto:lo Grand Chief Joe Hall, president of Sto:lo Nation.

“We feel in some ways the government is saying that there isn’t a groundswell of support from the people on this, just the politicians,” Hall told The Progress. “They seem to think there is a division among the Sto:lo, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.” A meeting was held at Chawathil First Nation this week where a Sto:lo war council was demanded by angry community members.

No treaty needed to pluck ‘low-hanging fruit’ Robert Freeman The Progress An agreement outside the treaty process lets the Sts’ailes (Chehalis) First Nation reach “low-hanging fruit” on its way to building an independent nation, says Chief Willie Charlie. The band is not in the treaty process, but earlier this month signed a memorandum of understanding with the B.C. government that recognizes Sts’ailes traditional territory and the right to manage its land and resources — items other First Nations are still negotiating at the treaty table.

“The treaty process hasn’t been that successful,” Charlie said. “We won’t have to wait ten years for a mutually beneficial agreement.” “We’ve reached some of the lowhanging fruit,” he said. “This is not the end, this is a step towards meaningful agreements between us and the province.” The Sto:lo Nation is one of those still at the treaty table, but SN president Chief Joe Hall said he applauded the Sts’ailes agreement. Such agreements are “challenging” to First Nations still in treaty talks, he agreed, but the “key difference” is the constitutional protection guaranteed by treaty.

Agreements outside treaty are vulnerable to changes in government and other external factors, he said. B.C. Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak and B.C. Treaty Commission officials were not available for comment on the impact of the agreements on the B.C. treaty process. Polak said in an email to The Progress that the Sts’ailes agreement is an “incremental approach” that sets “achievable goals that will build momentum” toward a government-to-government relationship. “Chief Charlie has expressed an

interest in an agreement like this since 2009, so we’re very happy to have achieved this MOU,” she said. Ministry officials from the various ministries involved signed the MOU so they will have detailed knowledge of the services covered, rather than following terms of an agreement signed by politicians in distant Victoria. The Sts’ailes agreement covers areas like child and family services and health care, as well as more traditional areas like consultation and economic development. Chief Charlie said the MOU provides “certainty for us, certainty

for the Province, and certainty for businesses wishing to work in our territory — and all through a streamlined process.” Ministry staff said such agreements are not intended to replace treaty-making in B.C., and the Sts’ailes MOU is “unique” to the needs of that First Nation. “There are many paths to reconciliation and the Province has developed a range of tools that allows us to be flexible in our approach,” staff said in an email. “This MOU with Sts’ailes is another example of this approach.” rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

Christmas roadblocks start Friday RCMP roadblocks to keep impaired drivers off the road during the Christmas season start Friday in Chilliwack. Chilliwack RCMP Traffic Services will be setting up CounterAttack roadblocks in random areas of Chilliwack, Greendale, Rosedale and Yarrow, while Fraser Valley Traffic Services patrols valley communities from here to Spuzzum.

The ultimate goal is to get impaired drivers off the road, but police officers will also be looking for “aggressive” drivers, drivers “distracted” by cellphone talking and texting, and for drivers endangering students in school zones. “Our traffic members are dedicated to making our roadways safer for everyone that uses them,” said Cpl. Lee Dyson, officer in charge of the

The volunteers give free rides to drivers too impaired to drive home safely. The service is available from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. until Dec. 31. For more information visit the Operation Red Nose web-

site at operationnezrouge.com or call 1-877-604-NOSE. There is also a Facebook page and Twitter site. “The success of Operation Red Nose is wholly dependent on the people who volunteer for the program,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. “It’s a great way to give back to your community while helping to keep our roads safe over the holidays.”

The former mayors of Vancouver may have joined forces to call for the end of marijuana prohibition, but don’t expect any such pronouncements from Chilliwack. Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz said her job as mayor is to look after her citizens’ health and safety, before wading into issues like pot decriminalization. The former Vancouver mayors came out on Nov. 23 saying B.C. should lead a call for an end to pot prohibition, and current Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, has joined the chorus of the former mayors. They argued it would help eradicate the gangland violence associated with the illegal drug trade, and create revenue through taxation. “From the city’s point of view, we want to concentrate on Health Canada and the medical marijuana predicament,” Gaetz said. It comes down to a question of jurisdiction. “The criminalization of marijuana is clearly the federal government’s responsibility. Mine is to look after my town,” she said. Municipal leaders “have to be careful” which arenas they enter into, she said. The Harper government has indicated it has no interest in legalizing marijuana. Gaetz said she is more concerned with “making sure the local housing stock is safe,” and no grow-rip thugs are rampaging through her community. “While we respect people’s privacy to obtain medical marijuana, we are also prepared to blow the whistle if we think the growers are abusing the system,” she said. In recent years, the city has found the line between medical licensed grower and criminal grower of B.C. bud has become blurred. “There’s clearly something wrong with the system,” Gaetz said. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

Walk through the doors of Coast Chilliwack Hotel, and you’ll be stepping into a forest of holiday splendor. Inside are 11 fresh cut trees – 10 decorated by school children, one by the hotel – with baubles and ribbons and lights and handmade ornaments sparkling and twinkling every which way you turn. Just as festive trees should. Coast Chilliwack Hotel is holding its inaugural Festival of Trees from Dec. 1-24; a fundraising initiative to support the local Salvation Army Food Bank. However, unlike similar tree events in other communities, which typically invite business folk to decorate the trees, Coast Chilliwack Hotel wanted to get the children of the community involved. Nine elementar y schools, including Bernard, Rosedale, East Chilliwack, Evans, FG Leary, Tyson, Vedder, McCammon and Watson were commissioned to decorate 10 trees. “For the kids, it’s just fun,� said Julia Horn,

the people, culture and operations manager for the hotel. “They’re so enthusiastic and they do such a great job.� On Wednesday morning, a group of students from Evans elementary got into the holiday decorating spirit. As the aromas of sweet hot chocolate and fresh cut fir trees wafted through the air, the Grade 5 and 6 students crowded around their tree, and put up silver baubles and silver ribbons and handmade dove ornaments sprinkled with silver glitter, while merrily singing holiday classics.

Each dove ornament sparkled with words like creative, trustworthy, honest, kind, positive, artistic, dreamer. “The theme for our Christmas tree is about what we think beauty is,� said Grade 6 student Emma Donnelly. “Beauty is not just how you look, it’s not just the outside, it’s the inside that matters.� Watson elementary used peace as the theme for their tree, with handmade peace sign ornaments and a garland made from brightly coloured linked construction paper. Vedder elementary made ornaments out of socks and toques for their tree that will later be donated to the Salvation Army. For a view of all trees, visit Coast Chilliwack Hotel. Each tree will be voted on by the community. The class with the most votes will win a pizza lunch. Admission is free, however donations to the food bank are encouraged. All trees were donated by Highland L Christmas Tree Farm located in Columbia Valley. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Chilliwack gay community offered email support The Progress Chilliwack’s gay community now has an email support system to lean on. Clarke Fryer, 25, has set up a Gmail account to support others in the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning) community, so they won’t have to go through what he went through as a young gay teen growing up in Chilliwack: No one to talk to. No support. No acceptance. “I’m not a psychologist, I’m not trained in this field, but I have been in this situation,” he said. “And somebody to talk to is better than nobody.” The email is beheardinchilliwack@ gmail.com. When Fryer came out to his family in 2001, at 16 years old, they were the only ones who accepted him. He went through high school bullied, threatened, relentlessly picked on. His car was keyed, his tires repeatedly deflated. Even his own principal made him feel like an outcast, when he was told not to bring a male date to the prom, “for the comfort of other students.” He didn’t have close friends, and didn’t have anyone, who had gone through a similar situation, to go to for support. Before coming out to his family, Friar became physically ill. He wasn’t eating, couldn’t concentrate, was losing his hair. He was depressed, isolated, borderline suicidal. “It was really hard,” he said. “It was

eating away at me.” When he graduated, he moved to Vancouver for four years, not because he wanted to leave Chilliwack, but because, “there is so little support for people like me in Chilliwack,” said Fryer. “There really is nothing here.” And yet, “there are a lot of people sourcing for support,” said Fryer. “Young adults are really struggling, are really closeted in Chilliwack.” Fryer hopes the email support system will be a start towards change. He does, however, realize not everyone in the community will be accepting of it. “But a community is not a majority, a community is every single person,” he said. “And even if this email helps just one person, it’s a service that’s needed.” Fryer chose email because it’s discreet and can be anonymous if the person at the other end so wishes. There are currently four people, including a parent of a gay son, who will be responding to emails, providing support, and passing on resources. “This email is for everybody,” said Fryer, pointing to teens, parents, young adults, middle age adults – anyone with questions, anyone needing support. “If a person doesn’t have support from family or friends, they’ve got no one,” said Fryer. “This is a discreet way to ask questions and get support.” Anyone interested in volunteering for the cause can contact Fryer through email at beheardinchilliwack@gmail. com.

Is reading small print becoming more of a challenge? Don’t panic. It could be a common age associated eye condition called Presbyopia. Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eyes’ ability to focus actively on nearby objects. It’s a natural, often annoying part of aging that usually becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s and continues to worsen until around age 65. You may become aware of presbyopia when you start holding books and newspapers at arm’s length to be able to read them. If you’re nearsighted, you might temporarily manage presbyopia by reading without your glasses. If this sounds like what you are experiencing give us a call. At Crystal Vision and Hearing Centre we can quickly assess your vision needs and with our on-site lab, have your glasses ready to go in about an hour!

Embattled B.C. courts on way to ‘tipping point’ Chief judges warns of threat to justice from cuts Jeff Nagel Black Press The top judge of the B.C. Supreme Court has issued a rare warning that the province’s justice system is critically threatened by years of government underfunding. Chief Justice Robert Bauman, in a blunt Nov. 19 speech to B.C. lawyers in Las Vegas, used analogies like “going over the cliff in slow motion” to describe the danger looming from court

congestion. “Bring this issue to the attention of our fellow citizens and take whatever steps you can to defend and protect our judicial system,” he urged legal colleagues. “Once our institution is critically wounded it will never be the same again.” Bauman likened court underfunding in B.C. to the forces of erosion, adding it is steadily approaching a “tipping point when that gradual, insidious process of

incremental damage yields its dramatic finish – the structure is diminished and collapses.” By next year, the court services budget will have been cut more than 10 per cent since 2008, with overall staff down about 15 per cent. Bauman said there is a limit to the system’s ability to cope with restraint, adding the cutbacks that are yet to come are “cuts to the bone.” Numerous accused crimi-

nals, often impaired drivers, have already walked free because of judicial stays of proceeding after the case took too long to go to trial due to court delays. The shortage of provincial court judges – 17 fewer now hear cases than in 2005 – have led to criminal case backlogs so long, he noted, even an accused cocaine trafficker had his case quashed this fall after a 42-month delay. Court sometimes can’t proceed because no clerk is available, Bauman noted.

A shortage of court registry staff has delayed the processing of court orders by up to six months in some cities, he said. And he called the reduction in sheriffs earlier this year – since rescinded – a “glaring example” of court underfunding that led to criminal trial delays and never should have happened. Legal aid funding has dropped to “almost nil” in civil and family cases, Bauman added, even though close to 20 per cent of liti-

gants are self-represented. “Without additional resourcing, the court’s traditional and essential role in maintaining societal order is being eroded and degraded,” Bauman warned. NDP leader Adrian Dix called it a “very significant” warning on the state of the courts. “When you have people like serious cocaine dealers who are not being tried because of court delays, that’s a serious problem for confidence in our justice system.”

ICBC to seek rate increase for 2012 Tom Fletcher Black Press The Insurance Corp. of B.C. is applying for an increase to its mandatory basic vehicle insurance for 2012 to help cover an increase in claims and a decline in investment income. ICBC president Jon

Schubert said Tuesday the corporation’s bodily injury claims have jumped, contributing to a $200 million increase in overall claims in the first nine months of 2011. Annual bodily injury claims have climbed by $350 million in the past five years, and are expected to reach $1.7

billion this year. “We have not increased our rates since 2007 and there have been a number of rate decreases during that time,” Schubert said. ICBC reported net income for the first nine months of the year of $52 million, down from $331 million in the same period in 2010. Despite that, its rate change application to the B.C. Utilities Commission will seek to decrease rates on its optional coverage, where it faces competition from private insurance companies. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon cited ICBC losses in the B.C. government’s worsening deficit position. Quarterly results for the provincial treasury show a projected deficit of $3.1 billion for the year ending in March, up $313 million. Falcon said insurance companies around the world have seen investment income fall off with the continued economic slump in the United States and instability in Europe. Schubert said most of ICBC’s investments have been moved into lower-risk short-term bonds in response to the volatility of financial markets.

News Quiet campaign earns electoral area win Robert Freeman The Progress Ray Boucher isn’t claiming any special issue vaulted him to replace long-time electoral area director Dick Bogstie at the Fraser Valley Regional District board. “I just think it’s time for a change,” Boucher said Wednesday, when he finally found the time to comment on his Saturday election victory. For the record, Boucher confirmed he was in Mexico election night, but he was there on a family vacation planned three years ago, well before he decided to run for election. “I’ve lived in the area for 30

years,” he said. “I’ve been a firefighter in Coquitlam, recently retired.” And he’s been up at the crack of dawn recently to help put up two million twinkling lights in Stanley Park, part of an annual fundraiser for the B.C. Professional Firefighters Association Burn Fund. Where his election support came from to upset Bogstie, Boucher claims he doesn’t know. “It’s possible,” he conceded, that Bogstie’s support of the Aggregate Pilot Project that identifies approved gravel mining areas in the region may have something to do with it. “Gravel is an issue,” Boucher

agreed, “but whether I’ll be able to make any headway with it, who knows?” His goals as the new director for Electoral Area F (Hatzic Prairie/McConnell Creek)? “Listening to the people and representing their issues as best I can at the board,” he replied. Boucher said he’s really not sure what those issues might be, “but I’m open to take calls on any issues from anybody.” Boucher was the only challenger to replace a sitting electoral area director in the 2011 election, winning 129 votes to Bogstie’s 87 votes.

The Progress A new chief administrative officer has been named at the Fraser Valley Regional District. George Murray, a former director of corporate ser vices in Chilliwack until he resigned in 2000 to become secretary-treasurer at the Abbotsford school district, is stepping into the CAO position vacated by retiring Gerry Kingston. Murray is currently the FVRD’s General Manager of Regional and Corporate Services. But FVRD chair

Patricia Ross said Murray emerged as “the top contender” in a selection process that drew highly qualified candidates from across Canada. “We are thrilled that the position attracted such a high degree of extremely qualified candidates,” Ross said. “George has done an outstanding job for the FVRD in his current position, and we are confident he will continue to excel in his new leadership role,” she said. Kingston recently announced his retirement as CAO after a

B.C.’s forest watchdog barks warning over reporting Robert Freeman The Progress A report by B.C.’s forest watchdog critical of the B.C. government’s decision to put compliance in the hands of the forest industry is raising an “I told you so� reaction from critics. “We saw this coming back in 2004,� Glen Thompson, a Friends of The Chilliwack River Valley spokesman, said about the Forest Practices Board report. That’s when the B.C. government decided to put reporting of harvesting and reforestation activities in the hands of the forest industry. The FPB investigation found most licensees are reporting as required by law, “but enough (reports) were incomplete, inaccurate or late to be of concern to the board.� “We do not have confidence that the forest ministry can adequately describe the current condition of the managed forest

or track changes in its condition into the future,� the report continued. FPB chairman Al Gorely told The Progress there is “no immediate crisis,� but over time government decision-makers could be making forest decisions based on inaccurate information. Joe Foy at the Western Canada Wilderness Committee said those decisions may also impact wildlife dependent on forest habitat, like the Spotted Owl. “This report is a very sad document,� he said, but the FPB investigation confirms the WCWC’s earlier warning that allowing the industry to regulate itself “was like putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop.� “It was a disaster waiting to happen,� Foy said. Neither Gorely nor local forest officials could immediately say whether any of the industry reports that sparked the FPB’s concerns were made in the

Chilliwack Forest District. Thompson said the inability of local forest officials to speak about local compliance is like a prison official telling the public “to wait until he counts heads to confirm a jail break.� “They should be able to tell you this stuff right off the top,� he said. Ministry staff were also unable to report on compliance in the Chilliwack forest district, but said the report’s recommendations are already being addressed. “While (the new reporting system) has issues,� staff said in an email, “it is integrated with other natural resource reporting systems, which helps us make sound and comprehensive land management decisions.� Nearly $15-million is being made annually, the email continued, “by eliminating the need for yearly paper-based submissions.�

R AESIDE

Let’s use our heads B.C. Liberal MLA Moira Stilwell has proposed legislation to help prevent concussions in youth sports. The private member’s bill would make it law to remove a young athlete from play if a concussion is suspected. The proposed Concussions in Youth Sport Safety Act recognizes that the majority of sport-related head injuries occur in athletes younger than 20, and that the frequency of such injuries is increasing. Even with Hockey Canada’s new rules, head shots still occur frequently in minor hockey. Sometimes penalties are called, often they are not. Such inconsistency only confuses players and puts them more at risk, and some have sustained concussions. These rules need to be more strictly enforced. More is unknown than known about concussions. We know what causes them, but not why some people feel some symptoms – headaches, nausea, dizziness, sensitivity to light – while others experience a sudden onset of depression. There’s no clinically tested treatment for concussions. Rest is best. Sidney Crosby just returned to the NHL after 10 months recuperating from a concussion. Other players have had to retire after sustaining multiple concussions, some the result of deliberate and callous head shots. These are professional athletes; they know the risks they take every time they compete, and what’s at stake – for some, their jobs. But what about our children? So few will ever play junior or college, let alone pro. They have their whole lives ahead of them. No game, no victory or goal, is worth jeopardizing their futures. As a government, as volunteers, as parents, we need to do everything possible to educate them about brain injuries, to teach them to protect themselves and respect one another, without instilling in them fear. It’s not as simple as telling them to keep their heads up, and elbows down. We must help them value our most valuable asset – our brains. Let’s use them. ~ Black Press

British Columbia’s court system close to collapse VICTORIA – One of the last exchanges in the B.C. legislature’s fall session was over the state of the court system. Drug dealers are walking free, NDP leader Adrian Dix reminded Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond in the final question period. Dix referred to a Prince George case this fall where a convicted cocaine dealer racked up more trafficking charges while he was on trial, and then was released because he couldn’t be tried in a timely fashion. The NDP was picking up on an unusually political speech last week by B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman. Speaking to the annual B.C. judges’ conference in Las Vegas, Bauman warned that funding cuts have the B.C. court system “going over a cliff in slow motion.” The cuts are real. By next year, court service budgets are

expected to be down 10 per cent since 2008, and staff down 15 per cent. The provincial court is down 17 judges from 2005. There aren’t enough clerks. And the federal government is about to push through new sentencing guidelines that will add more inmates to B.C.’s overflowing prison system. Bond, the Tom over worked B.C. minisFLETCHER Liberal ter doing double duty as Attorney General, replied that some of the budget cuts are being reversed. More sheriffs have been trained, and 14 provincial court judges have been hired in the past two years. (Meanwhile, provincial judges are suing the deficit-laden govern-

ment, demanding a six-per-cent raise.) Bond also pointed to long-term strategies being implemented to relieve the flood of court cases. It’s this kind of systemic change that has the most potential for long-term reform of our archaic system. Right now there are an estimated 2,000 cases in provincial court that are running long enough to risk being dismissed due to delays. It’s not a crime wave; a quarter of all cases in provincial and B.C. Supreme Court are family disputes over kids and property. The Family Law Act has been in the works for years, and it sailed through the legislature with NDP support. It encourages out-of-court settlements in family breakups, equalizes commonlaw rules with those for married couples and does away with the

terms “custody” and “access” that suggest children are to be fought over as if they are property. Bond also pointed to B.C.’s harsh new administrative penalties for drinking and driving, which have kept most routine impaired cases out of court. Police have the authority to impound vehicles and impose heavy fines on the spot, when drivers fail a roadside breath test or even blow in the “warn” range of 0.05 to 0.08 per cent. Bond points proudly to a 40-per-cent decrease in alcohol-related vehicle deaths in the first year. Of course this is being challenged as an infringement of the right to go to court and try various drunk-driving defences. A judge has since decided if the hazards of impaired driving justify such an infringement. (See story, page 1)

Justice Bauman acknowledges that courts have to clean up procedures too. Set aside the baseless conspiracy theories around the Dave Basi-Bobby Virk saga, and you have two small-time crooks whose lawyers were allowed to spin the case out for seven years in a tangle of evidence disclosure demands. As the legislature adjourned, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Rober tson joined previous mayors, from Conservative Party member Sam Sullivan to Mike Harcourt, in calling for marijuana to be legalized and regulated. Not on my watch, replied Prime Minister Stephen Harper. So instead, we’re getting de facto legalization of crack cocaine.

BRAND NEW FURNITURE

Parents need to become involved As a parent of child in the Chilliwack school district, I was disgusted by the pathetic voter turnout in our last civic election. My view is quite the opposite of the recent letter to the editor by Mr. Wiens in regard to Kirsten Brandreth’s resignation as DPAC president. (Departing DPAC vicepresident sounds like sour grapes, Progress, Nov. 29.) Are there many things more important than the care and education of our children? These children, in a few short years, will be the ones voting and making the choices about our care! One only needs to spend some time within the walls of our schools to see how much more support is needed. This support needs to start at the top, from our city council, and in particular our school trustees. We need these elected members of our government to have a very

active role, supporting our schools, and in order to do that you must be out there, in the schools, asking questions and attending meetings. Perhaps, after Ms. Brandreth’s many years of service, she was hoping to see some new faces on the school board that might bring something different to the table. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to her, for what I’m sure was thousands of hours of thankless work, and most certainly more than her fair share of political drama. As a parent who volunteers within the school system, (and as a PAC member) I know all too well that there are a few people that help, and way too many people that stand back and make observations. I hope before Mr. Wiens decided people were being petty he has spent some time in a PAC meeting, or a DPAC meeting, or perhaps

even volunteering his time within our school system. This is not something for a “slow news day.” This should be front page news and the parents of children in Chilliwack need to be aware of what’s happening, and the path our school district is headed. It really is up to us, as voters. Remember: bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote. People were dying in the streets of Egypt the weekend of our civic election, fighting for their democratic right to vote. If you didn’t cast your ballot, please spend some time before our next election getting to know the candidates and do your part. We can make a difference. Voting is not only the first act of building a country, it is the first act of building a community – and you’re a part of it! Cheryl Maycock

rate the science from the snake oil we should not be paying carbon taxes in BC. As I watched the Grey Cup game on Sunday, I was astounded by the number of auto ads I was forced to endure. Our economy relies heavily on consumers’ willingness to buy new cars. If we don’t buy these cars our economy will fail, and of course, we will not meet the women of our

dreams. But, the instant I buy and drive one of those cars, I am now the destroyer of our precious Mother Earth. Oh the guilt! Oh the shame! The Carbon Offset, Carbon Trading, Carbon Footprint, and Cap and Trade schemes are money grab scams. The BC government is using this system to claw back education funding from our public schools to offset the carbon emissions

from their own buildings. The carbon trading exchange is creating billionaires who care very little for our environment. Give up the guilt. Get out and question the candidates in the up coming Chilliwack-Hope byelection. Let them know that we are on to their tax grab. Send a message to our ruling elite: Just Like the HST, Axe the Carbon Tax.

has only 3,000 of them and they have been slow to gain support in this country. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, an independent research group, estimates that converting intersections with traffic lights to roundabouts reduces all crashes by 37 per cent and crashes that involve an injury by 75 per cent. At traffic lights the most common accidents are faster, right-angled collisions due to such things as drivers jumping the lights. These crashes are eliminated with roundabouts because vehicles are forced to travel more slowly and in the same direction. It is generally recognized that it

is far quicker to traverse a series of roundabouts than a similar number of stop lights. Indeed, one US study of ten intersections that could have been turned into roundabouts found that vehicle delays would have been reduced by 62-74% (nationally saving 325,000 hours of motorists’ time annually). Moreover, because fewer vehicles had to wait for traffic lights, 235,000 gallons of fuel could have been saved. With over 20 sets of traffic lights between Vedder Bridge and the downtown area alone, we have a lot of potential savings available to the motorists of Chilliwack.

More roundabouts needed in Chilliwack Seeing yet another set of traffic lights being erected at the four-way crossing on Tyson/South Sumas made me wonder why we continue to build these when a more cost efficient, safer and environmentally-friendly alternative exists that is completely unaffected by power outages. We have one roundabout, why are we not building more? A recent article in the Economist mentioned the North American aversion to roundabouts and pointed out that the modern, safe roundabout first entered service in Britain back in 1966 with a design that is now found worldwide. Though tens of thousands of roundabouts exist across Europe, America still

hope to avert that,” Hall noted. “But it’s more than rumour now. It’s preparation and planning.” He underlined that Sto:lo reps followed steps laid out in the the treaty process “to the letter of the law” and stated early on in the process that they had grave concerns about their rights in the can-

yon being forfeited under the treaty. The canyon is a “very important” corridor for the Sto:lo. “We have people in our community that are very protective of our culture and practices, they have said they won’t let a piece of paper stand in the way of them exercising their rights,” Hall said.

“So it’s very important that this is not ram-rodded through to give them another treaty notch on their belt, and that we try to resolve this before it’s too late. All the government has to do is hit the pause button. They’ve done it before and can do it again.”

Operation Red Nose helps get you home safely We’re heading into the eighth year of Operation Red Nose, which kicked off in Chilliwack this past weekend. The lines opened at 9 p.m. on Friday, and volunteers will be on duty throughout the season offering safe rides home for motorists who don’t feel fit to drive. “We are also thankful and proud of those citizens who make the responsible decision

to use this service and not to drink and drive,” said Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz. Volunteers give up their weekend nights to help with Operation Red Nose, which runs every Friday and Saturday until New Year’s Eve, excluding Dec. 23-24 and Dec. 30. “I urge you to plan ahead,” said Mayor Gaetz. “Everyone benefits from safer roads and with so many options, there is

no excuse to drink and drive.” A total of 738 people used the Operation Red Nose service last season in Chilliwack. Chilliwack Restorative Justice & Youth Advocacy Association is the host organization for the region, including Agassiz and Harrison. The number to call for a ride home is 604-393-3000, or to volunteer with Operation Red Nose call 604-393-3023.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Beginning to look (and smell) like Christmas Mmmmm! Nothing smells as wonderful for the Christmas season as fresh greens inside our homes. It’s good to see a trend towards more traditional Christmas decorating. There are all types of fresh greens you can enjoy indoors, but I always look for two qualities: how long they will stand up under dry conditions and are they fragrant. For Brian both longevity MINTER and fragrance, it is hard to beat pine. All pine varieties have a wonderful scent, but one of the most attractive is Pinus strobus or white pine. Its soft blue needles look so graceful, and they can be used in a variety of situations, particularly to accent fresh flowers and centerpieces. Usually sold as single branches for swags, lodgepole and scotch pine are also very resilient. The long-needled Pinus ponderosa is also attractive, especially when branch tips are cut and placed in a large vase. The best use of these branches, however, is for door swags. With their naturally curved tips and large cones, they look perfect when combined with a big red velvet bow and a few shiny baubles and Christmas novelties. True fir or the abies family is my second choice for indoor greens. Silver balsam and noble fir are very good when

it comes to retaining needles and when you brush your hand against their boughs, the fragrance puts you back in the forest. I particularly like the silver underside of their needles. The flat nature of their branches makes these greens ideal for swags or for advent and traditional wreaths. Blue spruce is the ultimate picea, and its branches make beautiful door swags as well. The needles on spruce, however, do not last as long as abies or pine, and they are sharp, making them somewhat more difficult to work with. Douglas fir, named after Alexander Douglas, a British botanist who collected specimens of West Coast trees and took them back to Britain, is neither a spruce nor a fir - that’s why they are classified as ‘pseudo tsuga menziesii’. They have a delightful fragrance and make beautiful looking Christmas trees, but unfortunately, their branches dry out far too quickly to make them an ideal green for indoor use. Hemlocks are much the same: lovely, but difficult both for drying out and for needle drop. Cedar is an old time favourite for many reasons, but I’m afraid it also has a shorter lifespan indoors. If you can keep it in a cool room or use it outside the home, its pendulous branches are useful in swags, wreaths and most importantly, in cedar ropes. Another super idea is to pull all the spent flowers from your moss hanging baskets and replace them with all kinds of cedar tips to create wonderful

Christmas greens add a festive feel this time of year.

Christmas baskets. Add a few frosted cones, some holly and a big red bow with long tails, and you’ve got a very attractive addition to your outside décor. One of the most unique and attractive ideas that I’ve seen in a long time is a traditional European greens arrangement. Using a piece of florist’s oasis in a low bowl, arrange a variety of colourful green tips from yellow, blue, gold, green and bronze foliaged trees. A twisted stem of contorted filbert, one or two tall thin candles, bits of moss and a few dried perennials can be added for a finishing touch. It’s a very creative way to wow your friends and guests, and it will last right through the festive season. Cut branches are no different than cut flowers, especially deciduous holly, Ilex verticulata, with its stunning red berries. Seven to ten days is about the maximum time

for any greens to be indoors without being in water. Try to have an extra supply on hand so you can replenish your creations and keep them fresh looking. By cutting about one inch off the bottom of each stem and by keeping them in room temperature water, the life span of most greens can be tripled. Decorative branches of contorted willow and filbert or the stunning brilliant yellow and red branches of twig dogwoods look great in a vase by themselves, indoors or out. My favourite are the branches of ‘Midwinter Fire’ which is a yellow and orange bicolour dogwood. Christmas greens are so nice inside our homes at this time of year. They’re inexpensive, natural and fragrant. To enjoy them longer, be sure to mist them often and keep them in water if at all possible.

Want to get a fitter body, a better workout and feel better throughout the day? Then think positive. A typical person has upwards of 60,000 thoughts per day; the way you think those thoughts matter. Changing the way you think can help you get to your workout, work harder during your workout, and overcome obstacles in your way. Positive thinking can help get you to your workout. Imagine this: it’s 5:00am and your alarm clock is going off. You don’t work until 9, but early morning this is the only chance you have to fit in daily workout. It’s winter, it’s dark. And yes, your bed is so warm and comfortable. Immediately, thoughts roll through your head. Simple,

positive statements such as ‘I am worth it’, ‘I have a choice, and I choose to workout this morning’, or ‘I will feel amazing when I am done’ will motivate you to get out of bed, into Tanja your SHAW exercise clothes and to the gym. Positive thoughts can improve the quality of your workout. Getting to the gym is an accomplishment- but pushing yourself during the workout is what gets results. I remember struggling through a running workout in university. My lungs ached, my legs felt weak and I found myself secretly

wishing to trip and fall so I could have an excuse to stop. My running partner told me to ‘run tall, run light, run strong’. These words were simple and very effective and helped me to keep going. Simple positive statements can push you through a tough workout. Repeat short statements such as ‘be strong’, ‘power through’ or ‘one more rep’ to up the intensity of your sweat session. Positive thinking can help overcome obstacles. No matter what your health and fitness goals are, obstacles are a certainty. A positive outlook on barriers will improve the likelihood of conquering them. For instance, if you are staying away from sweets, but someone offers you a piece of cheesecake (which happens to be your favorite), your self-talk will determine whether you stick to your diet, or indulge. Thoughts such as ‘one piece won’t matter much; I am so weak!’ will lead to giving in. However, if you think ‘I am strong. I am stronger than any temptation’ you will likely not have the cake. Positive thinking applies to all types of obstacles. Positive thinking is strikingly effective, but can be easier said than done. (Are you already thinking ‘I can’t possibly control all the thoughts that come into my head’?). Follow these three steps to infuse your day with affirming thoughts:

Pick a few statements that you can connect with.

You will only need a few key mantras to repeat in your head. Pick words that are meaningful for you; not necessarily a quotes you read on an inspirational poster. Simple ‘I’ statements such as ‘I am strong and powerful’, or ‘I can do this’ Practice.

Positive thoughts may not stream into your mind right awayit may take some practice. Take a few moments each day to repeat positive statements to yourself, such as before a workout, or to prepare for occasions where you may have difficultly sticking to a diet plan. Be on the lookout for negative thoughts.

If negative thoughts pop into your head, identify them and actively replace them with positive thoughts. Thoughts are created by your mind, they are not necessarily truths. For example, if you are part way through a workout and you find yourself thinking ‘I can’t do this’, acknowledge the thought, but then replace it with ‘this is a challenging workout, I am strong and I will push though’.

Perspectives

The McCreary Centre: Body image and weight A few weeks ago you may remember that my colleague Dr. Rob Lees wrote an article on the McCreary Centre Adolescent Health Survey (2008 results) which asks students in grades 7-12 various questions about their lives, everything from exercise Eryn to eating habits WICKER to drug use and sexual activity. Rob’s article highlighted the survey’s findings on physical health, exercise, and healthy living. And this week we continue with that series as I emphasize the findings on weight and body image. Why would it be important to ask youth about their thoughts on this topic? Perhaps program development, policy regarding vending machines, health promotion opportunities, or namely, awareness and prevention of unhealthy behaviours related to weight and body image such as eating disorders and low self esteem. According to the survey, 82% of girls and 73% of boys stated they were at a healthy weight. 6% of both genders said they were underweight, and 21% of males and 12% of females said they

were overweight or obese. How do we keep those healthy weight numbers high and continuing to rise? Research has shown that there are five ways to reach or maintain a healthy body weight: reduce screen time, exercise, watch out for proportion distortion, eat five servings of fruits and veggies a day, and don’t skip breakfast. Another finding was that only 20% of males and 11% of females reported being satisfied with their body image, with 54% of healthy weight females trying to lose weight, and 34% of healthy weight males trying to gain weight. How can we as parents, educators, and community members help to promote positive and healthy body image for all children and adolescents? Tips like: avoid talking negatively about weight, food, and bodies; limit media messages and be an active media interpreter; expand your definition of beauty and expose distortion like airbrushing; be a role model with regard to your own body and body image; never criticize a child’s body and work on complimenting actions not looks. The survey also noted that females were more likely to report dieting to lose weight (46% compared to 16% of males) as well as engaging in activities such as binge

eating and purging. Eating disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia, are the most common chronic illnesses in the female adolescent population, with an incidence of up to 5%. Meaning that of the 30,000 students who completed the questionnaire, if half

of them were female then potentially up to 750 adolescent girls in the Fraser Valley may be suffering from an eating disorder. What can we do as a community? Well, schools have taken these concerns to heart and have implemented

changes such as breakfast programs, daily exercise requirements, and smarter vending machine choices. Parents have to get involved as well – exercising together, eating healthy meals together, and talking about cultivating positive body

image. But do we have more work to do? Yes… always. The message to take home, with each of our articles in the McCreary series, is that overall most BC teens are doing well, and reporting healthier behaviours than students 10 years

ago. This tend will hopefully continue so that the next generation will be even healthier in all aspects of their lives. Eryn Wicker (M.A., R.C.C.) is a mental health clinician with the Child and Youth Mental Health team with the Ministry if Children and family development in Chilliwack.

It`s a very important issue for Chilliwack families contending with dementia, since caregiving can be physically and emotionally stressful. “One of the most important things you can do to support someone with dementia is to take care of yourself,” says Jillian Armit, the Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s local support and education coordinator. Some self-care tips include: • Set realistic expectations for yourself. Take one day at a time. • Get help. Don’t try to do everything by yourself. • Look after yourself. Talk to someone who is willing to listen. Continue to participate in activities you enjoy. Learn relaxation techniques. Get some exercise, even if it’s just a quick walk. • Make regular appointments with your doctor. Let them know if you are concerned about your stress level. • Participate in the Society’s free Chilliwack support and information group.

As a working parent of three children, it can be hard to find the time to volunteer every day at school. But just like we teach our kids, when something is hard, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t automatically make it impossible. It only means you have to try even harder. Three years ago, despite time constraints and other concerns, I volunteered to co-chair Little Mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parent Advisory Council. I juggled work and PAC responsibilities for two years, and it was one of the most rewarding positions Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever held. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until I was in the PAC executive that I saw the true importance of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;behindthe-scenesâ&#x20AC;? volunteer work. The planning. The decision-making. The rallying of other parents. As a volunteering parent, I empathize with and support Kristen Brandrethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to step down from DPAC after so many years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy work, and can be very defeating. On top of the work going on at the school level, there is the DPAC and school board meetings to be aware of. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an overwhelming load of work for a small number of people, and even the most passionate parents canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be everywhere at once.

And this is where newspapers come in handy, but more specifically, reporters. I trust our local reporters to be unbiased, and I learn much about my community through reading articles about meetings and events I cannot attend. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an invaluable tool for me, especially since â&#x20AC;&#x201D; big surprise â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also passionate about voting. So how handy Jessica is it, here in Chilliwack that PETERS the same local reporter has been to each and every school board meeting for the past several years? Not only does Katie Bartel know the issues better than most, she gets that information across to the reader in a way thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s straightforward. She takes what she hears at those meetings, and follows up in the schools, with parents and administrators. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s literally entrenched in the education scene here, despite not being a parent herself. She has become a champion for local students and teachers, as you can read through the stories she develops.

As a fellow reporter, I know you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover a board or council for that long without getting to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on behind the scenes. And that information can be just as valuable to the reader, and voter, as whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on any written agenda. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably more important at election time, when you would think politicians would be at their best, and when potential voters are the most keen to learn. So, if any reporter is finally fed up enough to speak up about tension, affiliations, and other underground rumblings, through a column separate from news reporting, then we should welcome those thoughts. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate is that someone would think a reporter shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have those thoughts, or worse, would try to shame her for speaking her mind. Or is an informed opinion too scary a thought? One should only hope that the people delivering the news would have personal thoughts, feelings and insight. In fact, it would be impossible to do this job without those traits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or at the very least, difficult. Jessica Peters is editor of the Agassiz Harrison Observer

With new hosts, and a few tweaks to keep it fresh, Chilliwack’s holiday parade has been re-named the Chilliwack Santa Claus Parade. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS FILE

Saturday’s Santa Parade to hit new heights The Progress Get ready for some exciting parade changes. The downtown Christmas parade has been reborn in its 11th year. With new host sponsors onboard, and a few tweaks to keep it fresh, the parade will now be known as the Chilliwack Santa Claus Parade. New in the hosting role this year are Star 98.3 FM and sister station SONiC 107.5 FM, who

effectively stepped in to save the well-loved community event last year, when the Downtown BIA decided it could no longer be host sponsor. The parade festivities will once again be capably emceed by the charming and funny duo, Scott Riley and Lisa Stevens, of Star FM. “This year, we’re taking the parade to the next level,” said Melanie Green, station manager at Star FM. “We’re proud and excited to be sitting in the host chair, and

we really wanted to take it all up a notch to reflect the wonderful community of Chilliwack.” Green happily remembered being part of the parade when she was young, and her children have also had the experience of being in the parade. “Now it’s a chance for more Chilliwack families to make some memories.” Parade goers will notice the focus has shifted somewhat to emphasize beautifully decorated floats. There are about 70 parade

floats registered so far, which is down slightly but they’ve changed the format somewhat to stress quality over quantity. “We’ve asked everybody to make it more about the festive holiday season,” Green said. City officials were thrilled to have Star take over the hosting duties and planning, said parade organizer Jessica Clark. City of Chilliwack and Chilliwack Ford are also providing resources and support. “It’s going to be worthwhile to get in on the pre-parade

excitement,” Clark said coyly. This year the spotlight is on the live pre-parade entertainment kicking off at 6 p.m. at Five Corners. Are you ready for this? There’s a mystery guest. The Progress Arts Desk tried to extract the name of the artist, using all the interrogation techniques known to professional media, but event organizers are keeping mum on their surprise musical act set to take the stage at Five Corners at 6:15 p.m. Continued: PARADE/ p28

Story of Amahl a holiday classic A crippled boy and his mother are unexpectedly visited by three regal figures following a brilliant star in the Eastern sky. Their presence soon becomes a village affair, but before the visitors resume their journey, a miracle happens. This is the story of Amahl and the Night Visitors, the acclaimed one-act 50 minute opera that has become one of the most frequently performed operatic works internationally since its premiere. The Fraser Valley Philharmonic Society will present this celebrated work in the Main Theatre of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2011.

It holds the distinction of being the first opera ever written for television and it has become a hugely popular Christmas classic ever since, inspired by the Wise Men’s inspirational tale of “a kingdom built on love alone” from the Adoration of the Magi. Filmed in 1951 in New York City at NBC studio 8H in Rockefeller Center, Amahl was broadcast live as the debut production of TV’s Hallmark Hall of Fame. The list of directors for the production reads as a national who’s who for theatrical music in Canada, with Maestro Leonard Camplin (Queen’s Silver Jubilee Medal and Canada’s

125th Anniversar y Medal) at the helm in this production as Music Director, Stefanie Swinnard (Performing Arts British Columbia Champion) Stage Director, and Karry Kozak Fedoruk (Chilliwack Musical Theatre founding Choreographer) as Director of Choreography. Performers will include Wilfred Neumann as Amahl, Paula Quick as his Mother, Andrey Andreychik, Shane Hanson and Tim Howe. Amahl and the Night Visitors, Dec. 10, 7 p.m. at the Cultural Centre, $30/$25/$20/$12 at the box office or call 604-391-7469.

Odd results from fan vote There are two veryy obvious omissions on this list, writes Jacob Bestebroer

Chilliwack Chiefs Ty Miller (No. 3) and Derek Huisman (No. 9) look to put a Penticton pummelling behind them as they travel to Trail for back to back games against the league worst Smoke Eaters. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Chiefs face struggling Smoke Eaters Eric J. Welsh, The Progress There may be no better way to ease the pain of back to back losses to the BCHL’s top team than a nice road trip to Trail and back to back games against the BCHL’s worst team. That’s where the Chilliwack Chiefs find themselves this weekend, looking to bounce back against the cellar dwelling Trail Smoke Eaters. The Chiefs look to rebound from a bad weekend against the Penticton Vees, capped off by a 9-0 road loss at the South Okanagan Events Centre Saturday night. At 4-16-1-3, the Smokies present an inviting target. They’re not just the last place team in the

16 team circuit, they’re eight points behind the next worst teams (Langley and Westside at 20 points each). The Smokies can’t score. Trail’s got a leaguelow 60 goals in 24 games, with a fifth of their offence provided by Clayton Chessa (12 goals). Trail also can’t keep the puck out of their net. They’ve given up 127 goals this season, 15 more than the next most defensively deficient squad (Victoria at 115). This is as close to an automatic four points as the Chiefs will find on their schedule this year. So why should there be any reason for nervousness? Maybe because these

are the very definition of trap games. The Smoke Eaters are actually riding a one game winning streak, having dumped the Westside Warriors 3-1 at the Cominco Arena in Trail last weekend. Recently signed goaltender L yndon Stanwood was the difference maker, turning aside 33 of the 34 shots directed his way. Though he stands just five-foot-six and weights 160 pounds soaking wet, the West Vancouver native came up large. Stanwood stopped 26 shots in the first two periods to preserve a 1-0 lead, highlighted by a sprawling cross-crease save off of star forward Richard Vanderhoek late in the second. The 18-year-old made his first BCHL start

Friday night, taking a 4-1 loss against those same Warriors. Stanwood said he made some adjustments between games that paid off. “It was a big difference yesterday I found, but coming in today I felt better - I was a little more used to it. I realize the guys are a little more quicker, harder shots, so that one game helped me adapt,” he said. “It feels pretty good, being my second game in the league, with losing a tough one yesterday, today winning is just so good.” The diminutive goaltender has created a positive early impression on the team. “He’s been standing on his head, he’s great. I mean he’s fast, he sees the puck well when the shot’s from the outside

and he’s been what we need,” said Chessa. Chilliwack native Connor Tiechko scored twice and added an assist in the 3-1 win, teaming with Chessa and Garrett McMullen to form Trail’s most dangerous line. Tiechko started the year with the Prince George Spruce Kings, playing six games with one assist. Since coming to the Smoke Eaters, the 19-year-old has recorded three goals and seven points in nine games. Tiechko split his first 46 BCHL games between the Nanaimo Clippers and Surrey Eagles and has 18 goals and 43 points in his junior A career. Check Tuesday’s Progress sports section for a Chiefs weekend wrapup.

Congratulations to Chiefs alumni Shawn Horcoff and Jeff Tambellini, both of whom were named to the BCHL’s all-time Top 50 list last week. Both were obvious choices, but when lists like this are decided entirely by fan vote you never know what the results will be. Fans were asked to vote online for three players from each decade — a great idea, but it was impossible to skip a decade when voting. For example I recognized many of the names from the 1960’s but didn’t feel I knew enough to vvote. ote. But in order to vote for the next decade, I had to. This is most obvious when looking at the top 10 vote getters for the 1990s. There are two very obvious omissions on this list. Current Chiefs assistant coach Doug Astt scored 242 points in 161 games from 1991 through 1994 and Agassiz’s Kris Wallis scored over 300 points in four seasons with the Nanaimo Clippers. Both are more deserving than Kelownaa Spartan Willie Mitchell. Mitchell was a good BCHL defenseman, but when the Spartans folded in 1995, Mitchell moved on to Melfort, Saskatchewan and played his best junior A hockey there. He made the list because people know w his name and he played five seasons for the Vancouver V ancouver Canucks. How did Andrew Ladd make the top 10 of the 2000-2010 decade? He spent one season with the Coquitlam Express during which he scored 15 goals and 40 assists. By the end of that season and into the playoffs he was an excellent player, but the following season he moved on to the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League. He went on to play for Canada in the World Junior Tournamentt and has won Stanley Cups with the Chicago Blackhawks and Carolina Hurricanes. There’s no question he’s had one of the best post-BCHL L careers of any player from that decade, but saying he is one of the 10 best BCHL players off that decade isn’t right. Having said all that, lists like this are a lott of fun. They create fan discussions and that’s never a bad thing. The Chiefs have partnered with Save On Foods to offer a Family Pack for just $39.95. Available A vailable at Chilliwack locations of Save On Foods, Price Smart and Coopers Foods, the pack consists of four tickets to a Chiefs game, four hot dogs and four cokes. Lastly, thanks to Kris Abbott who pointed outt that I had the incorrect empty net goal scorerr in the Chiefs championship clinching game in 1995 in my article last week. It was Aaron Hoggan who scored the goal. Feedback can be sent to jb@chilliwackchiefs.net.

The Falcons hope an infusion of youth will help them make noise in the Fraser Valley East. Towering Grade 10 center Hayden Lejeune didn’t look out of place in a couple of late-season appearances last year. Standing six-foot-six, Lejeune has game-changing size. He can run the floor and displays a soft shooting touch. Teams will have their hands full trying to stop him. But if they worry too much about Lejeune, they may find themselves torched by the dynamic duo at guard. Logan Rogers mans the point as the only returning starter from last year. Shooting guard Jason Kroeker has developed quickly and will be relied upon for both scoring and leadership. Unsung hero Josh Enns will play multiple positions and bring toughness to the Falcon lineup. The top newcomer could be Eric Rogers, a Grade 10 player capable of playing guard or forward. With 14 Grade 11’s, the Falcons are a team that could make waves this year and next. Head coach Kyle Graves believes his program is on the right track. “This year our goal is to place second in our league and get into the Fraser Valley tournament,” he said. “We want to continually get better, to the point where we can knock off a tough team in the Valleys.”

Returning players will be the key to the Falcon fortunes in 2012. Multi-spor t standout Robyn Kempers enters her final season of high school basketball looking to build on an excellent 2010-11 campaign. Grade 11 stars Lauren Kempers and Haley Lightle join Kempers as the core of the team. For Sardis to succeed this season, they’ll need contributions from everyone on the bench. It would also help if Grade 10 rookie Michaela England could get comfortable quick at the senior level. England is a good shooter and ball handler who could help take the heat off the big three. Mariam Shaukat will eventually be an impact player for the Falcons at the shooting/ point guard position. A returning starter, Shaukat is currently injured, but she is expected back before Christmas. Ken Heise guided this crew last year and went heavy with younger players, hoping it would pay off in the future. But the longtime Sardis athletic director retired over the summer, handing the coaching duties to Richard Tagle. Tagle has held the coaching reigns before and knows what to do. “Our expectations are to finish at the top of the top four teams in tier two,” Tagle said of his team’s forecast. “That will qualify us for the Fraser Valley championships.”

If some breaks go their way, the Storm could be a force to be reckoned with in the Fraser Valley East. Grade 12 veteran Gary McCrea will lead and lend versatility to the Storm lineup with his ability to slide from forward to guard. Erik Neels is another returning player who has made big strides in the offseason. Physically stronger, Neels is holding his own against McCrea in practice and will be a lot tougher for opponents to shove around this year. Kyle Hamilton will run the offence from the point guard position while talented shooter and ball-handler Brendan Janz looks to bounce back from an injury-marred 2010-11. Zach Fleming could be the unsung hero. Fleming works hard, never quits and will be a go-to guy defensively. Stephen Norrish is the team’s top ball handler and another defensive demon. CSS will try to work a couple youngsters into the lineup. Mitchell Wierks and Jake Foley are both entering their first year of senior ball. Wierks is the younger brother of current UFV women’s basketball stars Sarah and Nicole Wierks. “Our goal is to make the playoffs,” Mauro said of his team’s outlook. “We will focus heavily on how the guards handle and distribute the ball, and it can be a very exciting year, if the pieces fall into place.

After a one year absence, Joe Ogmundson is back behind the wheel of the CSS girls team, determined to restore it to its former glory. His current group must endure some growing pains to get where he wants them to go. Kelsi McLean will cocaptain the team. From her point guard position she will handle the ball a ton and be depended on to make good decisions for a team that needs a floor leader. Christina Vandenbrink will be the another co-captain, relied upon to score for a team that doesn’t figure to score much. Grade 11 Megan Wierks tries to follow in the footsteps of older sisters Sarah and Nicole, both of whom have gone on to UFV. She plays a totally different style, but could end up just as good as her siblings. Kylie Gauley is an excellent rebounder and dependable defender. Nicole Bartel will be the emotional leader on the team and Rachel Vandenberg will be a key contributor off the bench. “The season depends on getting quality minutes from a group of forwards — Peyton Norrish, Natalie Hoogeven, Megan Johnson and Janine Leijen,” Ogmundson noted. “They need to contribute 15 rebounds and points as a group for us to do well. I expect a long learning phase, but I think we’ll be difficult to beat come playoff time in the spring.”

The Grizzly boys go gunning for a AA provincial title this year, returning a talented and veteran-laden roster. Lucas Mannes is G.W. Graham’s floor general and co-captain. He may be one of the most talented guards in the province. Josiah Cockrill, brother of ex-GWG star Micah Cockrill, provides a counter-balance to Mannes from the power forward position. Cockrill is a legit threat in the paint and also has three point ability from the oustide. Adding two inches of height over the summer, Ryan Tempel brings the same sor t of ability, giving the Grizzlies three go-to guys offensively. Hank Derksen is the unsung hero, bleeding blue and white and doing all the little things to help his team. Austin Uy (Grade 11) is the only rookie on the veteran roster. The only other Grade 11 player is returnee Cody Hansen, who has looked very good through the preseason. “Our team goal this year is to do everything in our power during the regular season to give us the best opportunity to win the AA provincial championship,” said coach Jake Mouritzen. “If we work together as a family over the next four months, we have an excellent opportunity to reach our ultimate goal.”

The Grizzly girls start the season banged up, but the hope is they’ll be healthy enough to make a playoff run in the spring. Breena Wirtz will be a leader once again for GWG. The Grade 12 post player is a strong rebounder and one of the team’s leading scorers. Kaitlyn McDonald is another offensive force, moving from the post to the outside this season. McDonald is sidelined until January with an ankle ailment, but should provide lethal three-point shooting when she returns. Grade 10 star Jenika Bannerman is a natural athlete with a rare combo of speed, strength and agility. A breakout season from Bannerman would help GWG immensely. Returning guard Aveen Rezends will quietly do her thing at point guard while the team breaks in a sixfoot-one rookie in the post. Jolene Slootweg will be a force, it’s just a matter of how quickly she adapts to life at the senior level. She could bring the type of paint presence not yet seen in the five years of G.W. Graham girls basketball. “We are starting the season with two starters (Kayla Unger and McDonald) injured,” said GWG coach Sarah Mouritzen. “But once we are healthy, I expect we will make a deep run into the Fraser Valley playoffs, with a team goal to finish top three.”

Curling’s Continental Cup coming to Langley Gary Ahuja Black Press The biggest curling competition in the Lower Mainland — save for the 2010 Olympic Games — is just six weeks away and will be contested at the Langley Events Centre. “Prior to the Olympics, the last big event like this was 1997,” explained Neil Houston, the event manager for the 2012 Continental Cup. He was referring to the 1997 Scott Tournament of Hearts, the Canadian women’s national championships, which was played in Vancouver. The Continental Cup will take place Jan. 12 to 15 at the LEC. It features the world’s top curlers in a Ryder Cup-style format. Six teams from North America — four Canadian and two American — will play against six from the rest of the world. The two sides play a variety of disciplines — regular team matches, mixed doubles, singles, mixed skins and skins games — for points with the first side to reach 200 points declared the winner. The Langley competition will be the eighth in the Continental Cup’s history, with North America holding a 4-3 advantage. Houston worked for VANOC for the 2010 Games and then returned to his previous job with the Canadian Curling Association. He has been working on the competition since November 2010, when Langley was announced as the host. “Right now it is just getting down to the details, making sure everything is in place,” Houston said. Houston recently secured the bands who will play at the Patch, which is housed adjacent to the arena in the Langley Events Centre. The Patch has capacity of 1,100 and promises to feature the most colourful and passionate curling fans. March Hare will play Jan. 11, the Time Benders take the stage on Jan. 12 and The Chevelles will rock the

Patch on Jan. 13 and 14. “They are all great dance bands; people

always enjoy them,” said Houston, noting he had previously used them in Regina for the

men’s world championships. “People may have forgotten there is a

entertainment element in addition to the curling,” he said. Two hundred and

seventy-five volunteers will help the tournament in its day-to-day operations.

Tickets are still available for the competition. See www.curling.ca.

✞ Obituaries ABBOTT Thelma Pearl

(nee Brown) April 22, 1921 - Nov 29, 2011 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Thelma Abbott, age 90, on ABBOTT November 29, 2011, at Valleyhaven in Chilliwack. She went peacefully to her Lord after suffering a major stroke. Thelma was predeceased by her parents Vic and Pearl Brown and two brothers, Hal and Gordon. Left missing her terribly is Bob Abbott, her loving husband of nearly 69 years. She is also lovingly remembered by her three daughters, Gay (Allen) Jacobi, Wendy (Dale) Warr and Vicky (Henry) Beckmann; grandchildren, Darnell McCullagh, Trevor Jacobi, Lisa (Gordon) Ponak, and Heidi (Dave) Blundell; great-grandchildren, Blair and Cole McCullagh, Caleb and Abby Blundell and Ashley and Tyle Ponak. Mum was born in Manor, Saskatchewan in 1921. During her high school years she enjoyed singing both in a ladies’ trio and the church choir. After attending business college in Winnipeg and working for the Canadian Wheat Board, Mum married the love of her life, Bob Abbott, on New Year’s day in 1943. Baking, gardening and later painting were Mum’s passions and she managed to master all three of them. She and dad spent many happy hours working on their property on Yale Road and later on Chilliwack Mountain (fondly called Abbott Acres). A positive spirit and a kind, loving nature were her most endearing qualities. We all have warm, happy memories of wonderful family dinners and, more lasting, the many paintings she left for us to enjoy for years to come. Our family is extremely grateful for the love and care given to Mum during her stay at Valleyhaven and to us this past week. A celebration of life will be held at Chilliwack Alliance Church on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 3 pm. In lieu of flowers the family is asking that donations be made to Hungry for Life International, 1-45950 Alexander Ave., Chilliwack, BC, V2P 1L5. Why not have your say? theprogress.com
