Candidates running in the federal election for the mainstream political parties in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon weren’t cut any slack in their first allcandidates meeting, recently hosted by the Chilliwack Rotary Club. Only the candidate for the fringe Western Block Party was spared the hard questions. Conservative candidate Mark Strahl was asked about his “tainted” nomination and his apparent lack of “real world” business experience.

Liberal candidate Diane Janzen was asked how she could be “truly a Liberal” with her Christian faith and her small-c conservatism. New Democratic candidate Gwen O’Mahony was asked about her party’s opposition to the purchase of fighter jets when Canadians are sending their sons and daughters “into harm’s way” overseas. Western Block candidate Clive Edwards pretty much had a clear run at the meeting to present his separatist views unquestioned. Two remaining candidates, Jamie Hoskins for the Green Party and Dor-

othy-Jean O’Donnell for the MarxistLeninist Party, did not respond to invitations to attend the noon-hour meeting. About his nomination, Strahl pointed out that he was the only candidate at the Rotary meeting who had actually been chosen by voting party members. “I’m the only candidate at the table that went through a nomination process,” he said. Strahl agreed that most of his working life has been spent in the political world, the last seven years in Conservative MP Randy Kamp’s constitu-

Strahl also said his experience included working with businesses that came to Kamp’s office trying to “claw through government red tape.” “I’ve seen the problems government can create for businesses,” he said. Janzen defended her mix of fiscal conservatism and “progressive” social values, and her Christian faith. “I make no apologies for the fact that I’m a Christian,” she said, adding Continued on 4

Police officers sit outside courtrooms in heavily backed-up Surrey Provincial Court awaiting their turn to be called. If they’ve come for a trial that has already been adjourned multiple times, it could be their third or even fourth appearance in an attempt to testify in the case. And if the institutional delay is ruled excessive, the case may be tossed out and the accused will walk free, rendering the officers’ time and effort null and void. Critics say it all adds up to a colossal waste of taxpayers’ money. And the hours police spend in court is just the tip of the iceberg. By the time they set foot in court, officers have spent many hours investigating and interviewing witnesses. DNA tests or other forensic work and expenses may have been ordered. After a suspect is collared, there is also a mountain of paperwork to be completed, notably the report to Crown counsel requesting charges. What’s more, in recent years the duty to disclose evidence to the defence has become far more onerous and now consumes much more police time than in the

past – particularly if there’s translation and transcription costs involved with non-English speaking witnesses. “The costs are huge for us,” Delta Police Chief Jim Cessford said, recounting one case where disclosure and transcription costs alone devoured more than $250,000 over six months. “To have the case denied because of unreasonable delay is really, really frustrating for everyone,” Cessford said. “That really sends a bad message to everyone.” Cases are increasingly being tossed out over delays in Surrey and across B.C. because jammed courthouses can’t keep up. More than 2,100 criminal cases have dragged on so long, they are at risk of being quashed. The reason? A severe shortage of judges – as well as sheriffs and other court support staff – be-

cause of chronic provincial underfunding of the system. Police officers realize what happens in the court system is out of their hands. But investigations that go nowhere or die in the courts without justice being dispensed hurt officer morale, Cessford said. Cases can be quashed by judges or stayed by prosecutors who anticipate a judicial stay because of delay. Crown sometimes bargains down to a lesser charge to secure a guilty plea. Prosecutors are now increasingly triaging incoming charge requests from police because court congestion has forced them to raise the bar for charge approval. As a result, lesser offences such as non-violent property crimes are less likely to make the cut, particularly if the

evidence doesn’t provide a very strong likelihood of conviction. The trend is also affecting policing decisions on the level of resources committed to an investigation – particularly for less-serious crimes that could be bogged down in court delays and ultimately quashed. Delta’s Carol Berner was convicted of dangerous driving and impaired driving causing death in the crash that killed four-year-old Alexa Middelaer in Ladner on May 17, 2008. Delta Police staged an elaborate and expensive months-long sting to get Berner to admit to an undercover officer she drank three glasses of wine before driving that day. Cessford said his force would still put the same resources into a similar case today.

Man seen prying open post box at Kawkawa Lake

A man and woman from Kamloops suspected of stealing mail near Hope were arrested by police Tuesday, April 5, after they pulled off Highway 1 at Popkum Road. Police received a report of a man prying open a Canada Post mail box on Kawkawa Lake Road at about 9 a.m. “Witnesses saw the male leave the area carrying mail,

and were able to provide police with a description and licence plate of the vehicle,” Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “It was determined that the vehicle the suspect was driving had been stolen out of Kamloops,” she said. Police were able to catch up the vehicle as it traveled west on Highway 1, and after it pulled off at the Popkum Road exit a spike belt was set up at the Annis Road intersection. But the suspect saw the

Critics say further DFO cuts should be put on hold

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Salmon advocates say federal fisheries staff in B.C. should be shielded from planned government cuts to avoid compromising potential recommendations of the inquiry underway into the collapse of Fraser River sockeye. The planned cuts announced last month aim to carve nearly $57 million out of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans budget over the next couple of years. Sto:lo fishery advisor Ernie Crey said Justice Bruce Cohen’s commission has been hearing evidence on the state of the fishery for months and may well hand down findings next year that call for new initiatives – and increased spending – to improve salmon science, habitat protection and fishery monitoring. “It will make a mockery of the inquiry to make those cuts,” he said. “Don’t start swinging the axe until Justice Cohen

comes down with his findings. It makes no sense.” Crey spoke out after the Fraser sockeye inquiry heard evidence showing habitat protection efforts on which sockeye depend are already in deep trouble because of past cutbacks and policy changes. One exhibit tabled was an internal note penned a couple of years ago by a Kamloop-based DFO habitat and enforcement manager who bluntly outlined the challenges.

“We can’t keep up,” Jason Hwang said in the note, in which he cited “huge” amounts of development in the Thompson, Okanagan, Nicola and Shuswap regions and long backlogs to examine proposals for possible habitat threats. “We are not able to pursue smaller occurrences that in the past we have pursued and prosecuted.” Regulatory streamlining, a poorly coordinated referral system and staff cuts have reduced DFO capacity to respond, his

note said, resulting in an overall failure to achieve the department’s policy of no net loss of fish habitat where developers must compensate for any damage they do. “Our staff are very disillusioned that the department is not doing more to address this.” A report on habitat enforcement tabled with the inquiry showed the number of patrols, sites checked and violations observed plunged at least 75 per cent each after DFO staff cuts were imposed in 2005. Watershed Watch Salmon Society executive director Craig Orr, who has been observing the hearings, said the testimony confirms what environmental groups have long believed – salmon protection is taking a back seat to the demands of industry and business. The judicial inquiry was called after the collapse of the 2009 sockeye run, when just over a million fish returned, about a tenth the expected number.

that she sees “no problem with being a Liberal as well as a Christian.” But Janzen also said she would defy Liberal Party policy, if it meant voting against her conscience. “I vote my conscience in all cases,” she said. “Am I a Liberal, yes.

crats support the military, but the party’s problem with the fighter jets is the unknown cost. “Would you as a business man make a large purchase without knowing the full cost?” she asked. “It’s not that we don’t support the military,” she said. “The NDP’s problem (with the fighter jets) is we don’t know the full cost.” She also questioned Canada’s new military direction as “frontline battle” troops, instead of the “peacekeeper” role of the past. Edwards, whose party is running only five candidates in the

election, said the Western Block obviously won’t be forming the next government, but if voters in the riding sent him to Ottawa as their MP, they’d have the satisfaction of knowing he’d be representing their views, not the other way around. “I don’t understand why we’re fighting overseas,” he said, in response to the question about jet fighters and military spending. “I believe we are actually being conned into going overseas and killing other people in their homeland,” he said.

Clarification

Experience behind the scenes Strahl promises to hit the ground running

Simone Rolph The Hope Standard

The public and party supporters had a chance to meet Conservative candidate Mark Strahl at a meet and greet last week at the Hope arena. Strahl fielded a number of questions on his background, support for veterans, and reviewed the party platform. About 21 people, mostly party supporters, attended the event onApril 7. Mark Strahl is campaigning to take over for his father, Chuck Strahl, as MP for the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding. And although name recognition may fair well for the younger Strahl, concerns over his father’s actions are also dogging him in the campaign. With 27 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces and as a director on the Hong Kong Veterans Commemorative Association, Lee Naylor questioned the candidate on his commitment to supporting vets. Recently when the veterans marched on MP Chuck Strahl’s Chilliwack office to deliver a petition in protest of cuts to veterans services, “he did not attend; he was apparently at a fundraiser,” said Naylor. “The NDP candidate marched alongside the vets and now there are those, who are calling on

all veterans to vote NDP, added Naylor. “Veterans Affairs is very dysfunctional and is something has to be addressed. What are you going to do for the veterans?” “If he had it to do all over again, he would have had someone there to accept the petition,” said Mark Strahl, calling his father’s absence from the event an unfortunate “mix-up” and “oversight”. “I have great respect for the veterans, and they need to be given the tools they need to do a difficult job, and the support they need when they come home.” If elected, “I certainly commit in front of all

these people” to voicing the concerns of veterans in Ottawa, added Strahl. Asked about his lack of public political experience, Strahl wrecounted his early political history in joining the Reform party at the age of 14, serving as an intern in Preston Manning’s office, working for DewdneyAlouette MP Grant McNalley and most recently as officer manager for Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge MP Randy Kamp. “My work has given me the experience to see how government can affect people both good and bad,” said Strahl. “I have helped single mom’s get the emergency help they

need, and small business owners cut through red tape... I have the experience needed to hit the ground running.” Strahl continued his week campaigning throughout the Fraser Canyon on a riding tour. NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahoney was also out on the road this week, knocking on voters’ doors from Hope to Spuzzum. Other candidates in the race for ChilliwackFraser Canyon riding are: Green party candidate Jamie Hoskins, Liberal party candidate Diane Janzen, and Marxist Leninist candidate Dorothy Jean O’ Donnell.

Opinion

Published at Hope, Boston Bar, Yale and surrounding area by Black Press

Grumble about elections, then vote As the acrimonious machinations of federal Parliament spun inevitably into Canada’s third national election campaign in five years, most voters just shrugged their shoulders. Wearied by years of recession and recovery, higher fuel prices, a yo-yoing dollar, escalating international conflicts and maybe even Charlie Sheen’s ranting, they just want the politicians to do their jobs. The politicians are quick to blame each other for the $300 million expense of another election that is as likely as not to end up with the very same or similar result as the previous two minority Conservative governments. In British Columbia, voters face the daunting prospect of as many as three trips to the polls this year—the federal election, municipal elections in November and a possible provincial election if new premier Christy Clark makes good on her pledge to seek an early mandate. We’ll even have a mail-in referendum on the HST in June. The people of Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Tunisia, Bahrain and any number of dictatorial states feeling the stirrings of democracy should have such problems. As we whine about campaign signs being erected on public boulevards, or vitriolic attack ads cluttering our TV viewing, Egyptians are still trying to figure out what their successful ouster of their president means to their country and Libyans trying to free themselves from the murderous 42-year reign of Muammar Gaddafi are dodging bullets. For most voters election campaigns are a series of contrived photo opportunities and divisive rhetoric, a test of endurance rather than a celebration of democracy. It’s easy to get cynical about our parliamentary system when it’s all we know. Every time we get the chance to vote, we are given the opportunity to enact change. No international sanctions or no-fly zones required. It’s worth thinking about that when we ponder whether to tune out this federal election. — New Westminster Leader (Black Press)

The B.C. legislature is getting set for a spring session from the last week of April through May. Premier Christy Clark has kept her options open and held her cards close since winning the B.C. Liberal leadership in February. She is expected to announce shortly that she is running in a May by-election to fill the seat vacated by Gordon Campbell. But a by-election would have had to be called by now to put Clark back on the front bench in time for the start of the spring session. And there are two legislative tasks that won’t wait: passing a $40-billion budget for the fiscal year that has already started, and changing the format and date of Tom the harmonized sales tax referen- Fletcher dum that has been announced for June. A spring session must begin with the new premier coaching from the sidelines, but assuming Clark wins in Vancouver-Point Grey, it sets up her triumphant return to square off with the new NDP leader in question period before the session ends in early June. A mail-in ballot for the HST referendum will allow several weeks for responses to be sent in. The government now says it will be August before the result is known.

Letters Heart month another success story On behalf of the Heart and Stroke Foundation Tri-Cities/Fraser Valley area office, I would like to offer heartfelt thanks to the people of Hope for their continuing support of the foundation during Heart Month. In February, over 30 volunteer canvassers and captains put their hearts into it and raised more than $3090 for vital heart and stroke research. Combined with the $1238 raised by Cooper’s ‘Heart Fund Day’, ‘Heart Month at Pharmasave’, ‘Painting the Town Red’ organized by Barton Insurance and many personal and business donations, the people of Hope have celebrated February in a heartfelt way and raised over $4300. Heart disease and stroke are cutting the lives of Canadians short. Your do-

nations during Heart Month support research, health promotion and advocacy to help Canadians live longer, healthier lives. This year alone, your donations have allowed us to: fund $5 million in world-class research in B.C., launch the ‘My Heart&Stroke Health’ mobile app to help Canadians reduce their risk for heart disease and stroke, and continue our stewardship role in developing the B.C. Stroke Strategy for province-wide improvements in the prevention and treatment of stroke. With your help we are moving one step closer to realizing our vision of generations free from heart disease and stroke. Gillian Yardley Heart and Stroke Foundation

Sabine Keil and Steve Becker of Hope Pharmasave recently presented their company’s Heart and Stroke Foundation donation to Gillian Yardley. The funds were raised during Heart Month.

Confidence of Commons will be critical Mark Strahl is quoted in the Chilliwack Progress (Black Press) as saying the opposition will “pay a price for forcing the election on Canadians”. I’m concerned about this as it sounds like a threat and most of us don’t care much to be threatened. It is also a bit odd that voting for your government would be considered something bad that the opposition

is forcing Canadians to do – especially when we are watching people throughout the Middle East fighting and dying for just such an opportunity. Any government in Canada’s parliamentary system remains in power only so long as it has the confidence of the House of Commons, and a minority government is almost always on the verge of losing that. This

particular government under Prime Minister Harper has been particularly bone-headed about a whole variety of issues and it surprises me that it has lasted this long. Mr. Strahl goes on to say that MPs should be in Ottawa working on the county’s economic action plan. Let’s recall that going into the recession, Prime Minister Harper had no plan what-so-ever to deal

with our economic circumstances – indeed his finance minister had just released a financial plan that had nothing at all in it for dealing with the world recession. During an interview with CBC’s Peter Mansbridge, Prime Minister Harper declared that the recession offered some good investment opportunities – not something of much help to those facing unemployment.

Indeed, were it not for the threat of a Liberal/NDP coalition, the Harper government would have done nothing to help our communities and citizens during these difficult times. So it is more than a little unbecoming for Strahl to suggest that an election is interfering with this government’s attempt to deal with the economic action plan. Mr. Strahl should recognize that it is a won-

derful right to be able to elect, in a democratic manner, those we will allow to govern us and that from time to time we must have an opportunity to revisit that matter. Al Ens, President Chilliwack Fraser Canyon NDP

Georges Sauvé’s favourite sculptures are his dancing Raku polar bears, which can either reflect the natural movements of the bear or the movements of a First Nation dancer.

First exhibition by local artist From within the stone rises beauty

Sharon Blythe Hope Standard contributor

Have you dropped into the ‘The Backroom’ at the Hope Art Gallery lately? If not, you are missing out on a unique art show. This is the first exhibition of Georges Sauvé’s whimsical Raku polar bears and his equally fantastic sculpted stone carvings. His gorilla carving seems to be asking you to scratch under its chin, while a giraffe stares at you from the corner, and two crackleglazed polar bears frolic together across a table of blue cloth. As a backdrop, Jenny Wolpert’s digitally enhanced photos, wall hangings, and acrylic paintings tie the display together. Sauvé graduated from York University in Toronto and moved

to B.C. in 1977, where he completed his teaching degree at Simon Fraser University. He has lived in Hope since 1995 and began his artistic endeavors making stainedglass pieces. While on a trip to Europe he visited the Rodin Museum in Paris and was awestruck by the beauty of the stone sculptures. Mentored by Mission artist Leslie Dyck, George completed his first sculpture, exploring the wonder of personal expression with stone. Because he is somewhat limited by the size and nature of the stones that he finds, some of which come from the Nahatlatch Valley near Boston Bar, nature dictates what he can create with certain pieces. Once he selects a type of stone, he may study it for weeks or even months to determine what lies within.

“Nature is the real artist, she guides me,” said Sauvé. Using an angle grinder, he rough cuts the stone into the shape he wants to produce. Then he uses files or a dye grinder with a diamond bit to further shape the stone and to add detail. Then the time-consuming process of polishing begins, to remove scratches and gouges left behind by the grinder. Polishing often requires a minimum of six levels of grit before reaching the glorious finish. Since stonework requires so much time to complete a single project, Sauvé began searching for a medium that would allow him to produce his pieces in a much quicker way. After meeting up Raku artist Diane Ferguson at one of her many workshops, he began creating his little Raku polar bears.

News

Criminologist questions wisdom of closing courthouses Court delays can be traced back nine years: Plecas “On a much less-serious offence, we would be very, very careful about how far we would get into the investigation,” he said. Even when charges aren’t at risk of being quashed, there are still dangers from delay. Witnesses may forget details and weaker testimony – from civilians or police officers – can result in the accused walking away unpunished. “Memories start to fade,” Cessford said. “They’re not as sharp as if the case had been brought forward much sooner. That can have an effect on the outcome.” The police job of protecting and managing witnesses – tracking them as they move to new cities or provinces and getting them to come back to testify – also becomes more onerous as cases drag on. “The witnesses lose interest and they tend to cut us out after a while,” Cessford said. “They lose confidence in the system. They think ‘this is not justice, this is not working’.” TTT Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender fears too many suspected criminals aren’t even getting into court in the first place. They’re being turned aside by prosecutors who can’t justify loading socalled minor cases into the already jammed system. And he suspects police increasingly aren’t pursuing cases they know will never get to court. “People are frustrated by that and the police are frustrated by it,” said Fassbender, who cochairs the Lower Mainland District RCMP/ Mayors’ Consultative Forum and sits on Metro Vancouver’s policing issues committee. He said there are too many prolific offenders with numerous charges on their files who never seem to suffer consequences. It all threatens to corrode public confidence in the justice system among law-abiding citizens and weaken the deterrent of penalties for the criminally inclined. “There used to be a sense that if you do the crime, whatever level of that it might be, you’re going to suffer the con-

sequences,” Fassbender said. “I think people are beginning to question that.” Too many defendants and skilled defence lawyers know how to exploit delays, he said. Local cities are intensely concerned about rising policing costs. Surrey alone pays $97 million a year for RCMP operating costs, onethird of the city’s budget. Surrey RCMP officers spent nearly 9,200 hours in court last year. Since experienced officers make $37 an hour and about half of court time is overtime at double pay, the cost of court time approaches $500,000 a year. Fassbender said court delays are driving those costs up. If officers appear in court on their regular work shifts, that’s time they aren’t available to actually police the community, forcing detachments to backfill with other staff. And if officers are in court on their days off, overtime must be paid. Either way, Fassbender said, delays in court translate into more taxpayer dollars being spent and sometimes fewer boots on the ground to patrol communities. TTT Criminologist Daryl Plecas of the University of the Fraser Valley says there’s not enough judges, prosecutors or courthouses to deal with the caseload. He traces the rise in congestion to government’s decision nine years ago to close two dozen courthouses across B.C. “Whose brainchild was that?” Plecas asked. “You in effect narrowed that funnel such that no matter what police do, the capacity of the court system is only so much. Only an idiot would think that was sustainable.” Attrition resulting in fewer sitting judges and reduced court time came despite a growing population, more police officers being hired, and a greatly increased complexity of cases. For example, an impaired driving trial that once took a couple of hours can now take three days. Some police officers do nothing but handle disclosure requirements. And court delay means

a longer, more challenging job of protecting witnesses in serious crimes, Plecas said. “The delays are just devastating in so many ways,” he said. “We’re saying at the end of the day to a victim, ‘Your case is not being dealt with because we don’t have a system which is capable of doing this’.” Some relief could be on the way. New administrative penalties instead

of charges for impaired driving may mean much fewer drunk drivers clogging the courts, Plecas said. That might – over time – help reduce the court case backlog, which Plecas believes is the main reason behind the reform that some observers have criticized as a de facto decriminalization of impaired driving. “What they’ve in effect done is dump those

cases,” he said. Not everyone is convinced the shift to roadside impaired driving penalties is in itself a silver bullet that will relieve pressure on the system. Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association, said early evidence suggests police who are freed up from the hours spent on impaired driving investigations, the accompanying paper-

Q 27-per-cent increase in number of police officers in B.C. from 2001 to 2011 (7,279 to 9,261). Q 13-per-cent decrease in number of provincial court judges over same period (145 to 128). Q 73 police officers now working for every judge, up from 50 in 2000. Next week: Government responds

Small towns: A perfect fit for new librarian Bibliotheca Deb Ireland She’s here! Jacquelynne Garden, our new “Librarian On The Go” is here! Jacquelynne has been with the Fraser Valley Regional Library system for

nearly a decade. She started as a page and recently completed her Masters of Library and Information Science at the University of British Columbia. She apparently trains lions for the circus in her spare time, but I don’t know if that’s really true. I do know that she grew up in South Langley, which she describes as “the boonies of Aldergrove.” She loves small towns and is planning to move closer to the Upper Fraser soon. She enjoys reading, movies, travel,

and music. Favourite authors? Charlotte Bronte (Jane Eyre), Kate Morton (The Forgotten Garden), and anything by Bill Bryson. “The extremely wonderful thing,” she says, “about being a librarian is the endless supply of wonderful things to read. I think everyone in this line of work starts off with a love of books and comes to love the library as a community institution.” Jacquelynne will be travelling between Chilliwack, Yarrow, Agassiz, Boston

Bar, Yale and Hope, delivering programs in our communities as she goes. She started this past week in Hope as a scorekeeper at the Reading Link Challenge event at Coquihalla School (congratulations, Coquihalla BOOM!) and throughout the year, she will be visiting our schools, daycares, seniors’ programs, and community events. I’m really excited about having Jacquelynne on board. I’m sure you will meet her out and about soon. As I write this, the first

annual Hope Highbrows Quiz Night has wrapped up and the laughter has died away. We had six teams of six crammed into the library. Lots of fun, raucous and unruly behaviour (and not a single library “Shush!”) and some great prizes were won. We look forward to hosting the event again next year. An update: Anyone toodling around on the library’s website will have noticed our new “sociallyminded catalogue” – the very innovation that I

hinted about last time. Isn’t it fabulous? You can follow other users, give recommendations, send messages – kind of, sort of, a little like Facebook for library users. My user name is appleby_bc‚ derived from a book my children loved when they were smaller. If you can tell me the name of the book, come into the library and I’ll make sure you get a prize! Coming up: Author Adam Lewis Schroeder will read from his latest book, “In the Fabled East,”

a poignant story of mother, son, man and woman, on Wednesday, April 20 at 7 p.m. Screen-Free Week is April 18-24, so turn those screens off and come enjoy a free evening out.

On the go staff pick: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson is currently keeping me company on my daily commute in the form of a CD book. So far, I cannot recommend this book highly enough, it’s a witty and light read.

Revisiting a war

Burns begins work on PBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vietnamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Sheila Busteed TV Media REVISITING A WAR: Filmmaker Ken Burns has built a reputation for making movies about events and things that have profoundly changed the American landscape. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s covered everything from the Second World War and baseball to the invention of radio and the creation of national parks. Now, Burns and his longtime partner, Lynn Novick, are continuing with tradition with a new documentary series for PBS. The project, which is beginning production now but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t debut until 2016, will be at least 10 hours in length and will examine the impact the Vietnam War had on American and Vietnamese people and cultures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, more than four decades after it ended, nearly everyone has an opinion about the Vietnam War, but few Americans truly know its history, and there is little consensus about what happened there and why,â&#x20AC;? said Burns in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our series will shed light both on the history of the war and on our inability to find common ground about it.â&#x20AC;? Novick added that the film is their effort to shed some truth on the warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happenings while honouring those who served and sacrificed their lives during those nearly 20 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By providing an opportunity for veterans, their families, and those who opposed the war alike, to bear witness to their experiences, we believe that this series will help heal the deep divisions that have endured in America for decades over this enormously controversial and tragic war,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vietnamâ&#x20AC;? will follow a similar format as Burnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other warthemed films, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Civil Warâ&#x20AC;? (1990) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Warâ&#x20AC;? (2007).

Interviews and narration, archival images, music from that era, and new footage will blend together to tell â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vietnamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? story. Produced by Florentine Films and WETA, the project is being written by Geoffrey C. Ward, who penned multiple films for Burns in the past. GROWING GUEST LIST: As May sweeps approaches, NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Law & Order: Special Victims Unitâ&#x20AC;? will continue to draw in viewers with yet another big-name Hollywood guest star. Actress Rita Wilson is scheduled to appear in an episode of â&#x20AC;&#x153;SVUâ&#x20AC;? next month called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delinquent.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play Bree Mazelon, a mother whose teenager is being investigated by the squad. Wilson, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous for her roles in 1999â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Runaway Brideâ&#x20AC;? and 1995â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now and Then,â&#x20AC;? as well as her marriage to Tom Hanks, was hired for the role because executive producer Neal Baer had seen her in a similar role and figured sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a good fit for the character. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few years ago, I saw Rita Wilson give a riveting performance playing the mother of a child with ADD in the play â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Distracted,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I knew sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a wonderful guest star for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;SVU,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153; said Baer in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rita will be playing a mother struggling to care for her seriously disturbed child, and we know the episode will be truly memorable.â&#x20AC;? Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resume is filled with a great balance of film and TV work. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been guest starring in TV shows since the early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s, with credits in the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hawaii Five-0,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;M*A*S*H,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Boss,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mad About You,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frasierâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Good Wife,â&#x20AC;? among many others. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a well-established producer. She first went behind the camera to produce 2002â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Big Fat Greek Wedding.â&#x20AC;? Since then, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an executive producer for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Connie and Carlaâ&#x20AC;? (2004), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mamma Ken Burns is Mia!â&#x20AC;? (2008) producing a new and â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Life documentary in Ruinsâ&#x20AC;? special with PBS (2009).

Community

Businesses celebrate Earth Day

Simone Rolph The Standard

The back alley between Water Street and Third Avenue in Hope will be buzzing with activities as neighbouring companies celebrate Earth Day. “We are excited to continue improving the alley behind our store in the hope that it becomes

contagious,” said Sabine Keil, owner of the Hope Pharmasave. “A beautiful and inviting downtown core would be very beneficial to the community.” Next Thursday, the company is kicking off phase two of their Pharmasave alley beautification project. Also in honour of Earth Day and to help

raise funds for local literacy projects, wander down the alley and check out the environmentally friendly Pages Book Store and Anna’s Incense. Kids can settle down to enjoy a reading of ‘The Lorax’ by Dr. Seuss, while their parents check out the great selection of gently-used and recycled books.

Call for bridge ideas

“This a great way to reduce, reuse and recycle, every little bit counts when it comes to sustaining the planet,” said Maureen Kehler of the Fraser-Cascade Literacy Centre. And, of course, every day Earth Day at 1960’s styled neighbour, Anna’s Incense. “I use green busi-

ness practices 365 days a year,” added Anna. “C o r n s t a r c h - b a s e d packing peanuts and recycled packaging supplies make a big impact; I only produce one bag of garbage every two weeks.” Back alley Earth Day events continue from 12:30 - 5:30 p.m., on Thursday, April 21.

Farewell party being planned for Rambo Bridge The Standard

It’s the last call for solid proposals to save at least some portion of the Kawkawa Lake Bridge for touring Rambo fans. The bridge and other local First Blood filming locations attract up to 900 visitors each year. But despite its community significance, the federal fisheries permit, granting the construction of the new bridge over the Coquihalla River, included requirement that the District of Hope would remove the aging wood trestle bridge. The bridge is considered at risk in a major flooding event and could damage the fishery due to high creosote levels in the wood. With the new bridge open for traffic, and the bridge approaches close to completion, town manager Earl Rowe asked council to rescind part of its September 21, 2009 motion to have the bridge relocated to another site. With relocation comes continued liability for the district, warned Rowe. The bridge construction contract with Neelco Construction contains a $118,000 clause for permanent removal of the bridge. The company is expected to use the wood in construction sites where creosote contamination is not a concern. The creosote-soaked timbers will be stored by the company in Chilliwack, at no further liability to the District of Hope. In order to begin the removal planning

process the company asked that council clarify their position on saving the bridge for future display. The rescinding of the phrase to relocate the bridge, “lets the company move forward with planning to disassemble the structure,” said Mayor Laurie French, but there is still time for the pubic to suggest a solid proposal to save some portion of the structure for display. The bridge is not expected to be removed until the end of the summer. Facebook pages and YouTube videos galore failed to save the bridge, but a small dedicated committee, headed by Brian McKinney and Inge Wilson, continues to lobby for some portion of the bridge to be saved. “We totally appreciate the liability,” said McKinney, but it would be a “shame to see that (entire) structure dismantled, thrown on the back of a flat deck and wheeled westward.” But keeping a full-size display, where the public can come in contact with the creosote beams remains a liability. Possible other suggestions included saving one of the timbers, perhaps under glass, or using the wood to creatively frame keepsake photos of the old Howe Truss structure. A farewell party is in the making, and planning meetings start at the end of April. Anyone interested in helping plan the party can contact Inge Wilson, manager of the Hope Visitor Centre, at 604869-2021.

Innovative company recognized

Free Rein Associates Training, of Hope, is the 2011 recipient of the B.C. Career Development Association’s Organization of the Year Award. The award for excellence is one of three awards the industry-wide association presents at its annual provincial conference. “We are so encouraged as a team to receive both the nomination and award. Our efforts over these past 18 years have been recognized by our peers and that means a great

deal to us,” said Peter Bailey. Through community partnerships, Free Rein provides employment training and related services for residents throughout the Hope region. Bailey owns and manages the company in partnership with Christine Proulx. In 2008 the company owners worked in collaboration with other community agencies to develop the SOCIA Building at the corner of Hudson Bay Street and Third Avenue. The employment and social services centre brings together under one roof complimenting community

programs including the Hope and Area Transition Society and the Hope Community Services Youth Centre. “It is a great honour to receive this award and spurs us on to continue our work in the community,” said Proulx. “Last year Free Rein was invited to speak to B.C.’s community-based trainers on the model we developed in Hope because it is very close to the model proposed for the province.” The B.C. government will introduce one-stop employment centres commencing April 2012, added Proulx.

Canyon team takes BowlBC competition Straight shooters heading for the nationals Barry Stewart The Hope Standard

While their competition were having an ordinary day, three Canyon Lanes bowlers were playing way over their average last Wednesday — earning themselves the B.C. Championship and an all-expenses-paid trip to Cambridge, Ontario, for the national championships in June. North Bend residents Lillian and her daughter-in-law Eleanor Forman teamed up with Lytton resident Julia Boldt in a Club 55+ best-over-average competition, organized by BowlBC. Boldt used to live in Boston Bar but still keeps connected with the community through the bowling activities. “We’re in the Club 55 at Canyon Lanes,” said Lillian on Sunday, “and we heard about the competition from BowlBC. We had a rolloff at Canyon lanes first, to see which teams would go to the regional playdowns in Maple Ridge. “The best men’s team was Lloyd, Sid Hambly and Gordon Paquette,” said Lillian. “And we lost!” sounded a voice from the background, as her husband Lloyd came in the door. There were eight teams at Maple Ridge and the Canyon women

BARRY STEWART / THE STANDARDV

Canyon Lanes Club 55 members, Julia Boldt, Eleanor Forman and Lillian Forman (left to right) won top spot in the BCBowl best-overaverage competition. had the best over-average aggregate score, giving them a berth in the B.C. Championships at Chilliwack’s Chillibowl Lanes on Wednesday, April 6. Six women’s teams, from as far away as Nelson and Quesnel vied for provincial honours — and the Canyon women were by far the straightest shooters. “We bowled four games and our team was the best over average,” said Lillian. “Our last game was awesome. We were all over average and we don’t usu-

ally bowl like that! “Our usual average is 145 for Eleanor, 127 for Julia and 128 for me,” she added. “We were 255 over average for the 4 games, combined — and the next nearest team was 114 over average. “I don’t think a lot of them were too happy with the way we were bowling,” said Lillian, laughing. “We bowl three games a week in the Wednesday seniors’ league and Canyon Lanes keeps track of our average scores,

starting in September,” she explained. “Fifteen or sixteen players bowl then and it’s just for fun... not a competition. It’s Eleanor’s first year playing with us, so she was pretty excited with the win.” The just-for-fun attitude may contribute to the Canyon bowlers’ history of success, figured Lloyd, the Director for Electoral Area A. Boldt went with a team to the Canadian championships four years ago — and the Canyon Lanes men’s team won first place that year.

Lloyd said the lanes were built in about 1990 and have since become an important center for the community. “It’s owned and operated by the community,” he said. “They’re open every day of the week. We’ve also got the Sears depot, the Greyhound depot and space for a hairdresser who comes to town every month. “It was started by a group of guys who got together and wanted to build it without it going on the tax roll,” recalled Forman. “But they ran

out of money, so it went to special referendum to raise the $235,000 to finish the job. “It has really been a great facility for the community,” added Forman, crediting the original group with having the vision to locate it close to the Boston Bar School. “It turned out to be the best location after all.” The Canyon women’s team leaves for Cambridge Ontario, northwest of Hamilton, on June 21. They return on June 24.
