Reaching back to move forward ...

The B.C. government has ratified a treaty for the Yale First Nation, granting ownership of disputed fishing territories in the Fraser Canyon to the 150-member community over the protests of the neighbouring Sto:lo Nation. Sto:lo representatives came to the legislature last week to warn of conflict over the fishing sites, which become part of the fee-simple property owned by the Yale once the federal government ratifies the treaty. The treaty also transfers forest and mineral rights and about $12 million in compensation. Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson cast the lone vote against the treaty, emphasizing he was not opposed to the right of Yale and other aboriginal communities to settle treaties. He had two objections, one of which was the few hours allowed in the legislature to debate a treaty that runs to nearly 500 pages.


Yale First Nation chief Robert Hope presents a picture from his Fraser Canyon community to former premier Gordon Campbell in 2008, when agreement in principle was reached on the Yale treaty.

Simpson’s other objection was to the decision by the federal and provincial governments to proceed with the Yale treaty despite a detailed claim by the Sto:lo Nation to the canyon fishing and rack drying sites that have been used for thousands of years. Governments have set up a “race to the table� where aboriginal groups with overlapping claims can get an advantage by signing a treaty first, and that leaves the neighbouring groups to battle over the treaty in court, Simpson said. Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak

said the disputed canyon areas were already designated as Yale territory by the establishment of reserves under the Indian Act a century ago. The treaty provides for temporary access by the public and Sto:lo members, so it improves on the existing situation, she said. The Sto:lo are offended by the Yale treaty partly because their people were moved from the canyon to reserves in the lower Fraser Valley in the early 20th century. Governments of the day expected aboriginal people to abandon

their traditional ways and learn to farm, but Sto:lo people continued to travel up the canyon to fish for salmon. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom voted against the Tsawwassen and Maa-Nulth treaties in recent years as a backbench MLA for Peace River South. Lekstrom voted for the Yale treaty, explaining beforehand that it was his duty as a cabinet minister to support the B.C. Liberal government. His earlier objections to special rights for aboriginal people remain, Lekstrom said.

Spike in heroin-related deaths Fraser Health is warning intravenous drug users that a potentially fatal grade of heroin sold on the streets in recent months has been responsible for a spike in recent heroin-related overdose deaths. Preliminary results from the Chief Coroner’s Office report a sharp increase in the number of heroin-related overdose deaths in B.C. in the first five

months of this year. Many of the deaths have been in communities located in Fraser Health. Males in their 20s to 30s are most at risk. While many cases are waiting for confirmation from toxicology reports, lethal potency heroin circulating in the province is strongly suspected to be the cause of the deaths.

A police search of Hope and the surrounding areas has turned up an Abbotsford man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant. James Douglas Campbell, 60, was arrested without incident by Abbotsford Police just after 4 p.m. Monday. He was located riding a bicycle on a logging road near Yale and the Fraser Canyon. Const.

It appears unlikely that the Fraser River will be flooding anytime soon. Emergency management officials at the District of Hope continue to monitor the Fraser River on a daily basis to watch for threats. However, so far, the prognosis looks good for this year’s spring freshet. “I’m not saying we are clear. Usually the Fraser peaks in the first three weeks of June, but it does look good,” said Scott Misumi, director of Hope’s Emergency Operations Centre. Information is gathered using river gauges at Hope and further

He pointed to the cooler spring as a factor, as the ice packs melted slower than normal, preventing a rush f water. If a flood were to strike, Hope would get some warning. “Information gathering, such as the current situation in Prince George for example, gives us at least a two-day warning of a rise in levels here.” The District of Hope reminds residents to use caution and stay away from fast and high water.

Concert band earns bronze

Black Press

It was the first time in the school’s history that a band qualified for the nationals – and Hope Secondary’s young talent did not disappoint. The school’s concert band earned itself a bronze rating during the MusicFest Canada national competition. The event was held in mid-May in Richmond. The band, which is made up from students in Grades 9-12, won the right to compete after winning gold at a regional event in Chilliwack. “They performed very well, they should all be proud of themselves,”

Members of the Hope Secondary School concert band perform during the MusicFest Canada national competition. The group earned a bronze rating in its first trip to the event.

said school vice-principal Rosalie Floyd. Floyd’s daughter, Jacqueline, plays flute in the concert band and was also the recipient of an honours award. One

member of each competing band is selected for the honour. Qualifying for the national event is a two-year honour, meaning the band is eligible to take

part in the 2012 competition as well, in Ottawa. Floyd said the band usually goes on a tour once every two years, but it hasn’t been decided yet if they will go to Ottawa.

Bob Tarr, Hope Secondary’s music teacher and band director said he couldn’t be happier for the group. “They held their own ... we have some good musicians in this group,” said Tarr, who has been working with the concert band for the past four years. He believes the experience was just as important as the group’s bronze award. “They got to see a lot of other bands and attend the evening concerts.” Because the band consists of students in different grades, Tarr will lose some members to graduation. But he still thinks they could return to the nationals and improve.

Bear season has arrived and by that we mean BEARS are out and about looking to fatten up from a long winter of hibernation. The District of Hope has received numerous reports of bear/ human encounters in recent weeks. Attracting bears are bird feeders, garbage placed out in plastic bags for disposal and fruit trees, which will also be an attraction soon. Deterring bears from entering your property begins with you and everyone else within the community. We are all responsible for the increase in bear/human conflict. The District of Hope reminds residents to: • Dispose of garbage in approved garbage cans and, • Don’t put your garbage out in plastic bags • Only put out your garbage for pickup on the morning of pickup, not the night before • Keep your garbage cans in a secure location (garage) with a sealed lid to prevent odors from escaping. • Reassess the need to have bird feeders on your property? All residents and businesses are encouraged to become BEAR AWARE and do your part. By working together and educating children, grandchildren and any new residents to our community.

Business as usual, despite postal strike When it comes to the Canada Postal workers rotating strike action, one question is likely to be asked a lot. Something like this, perhaps: “Who would notice?” But the same factors that make regular “snail” mail less relevant are also likely to turn the action the postal workers’ union is taking into a long one, perhaps rivalling the epic postal strikes of the '70s and early '80s. The difference this time is that the union is in a far less strong bargaining position. Courier services and e-mail have cut deeply into Canada Post’s core business – even having bills arrive by e-mail is no longer uncommon, and paying bills electronically is nearing universality – so a postal strike no longer has the possibility of bringing commerce to a standstill. That’s not to say that Canada Post is unnecessary. Social assistance cheques of various kinds still arrive via mail and, except for hand delivery, the mail is the most effective way of getting original copies of documents across the country. But what a strike will do is encourage people to make even more use of direct deposit, electronic communications and courier services as a substitute, hastening the transformation of Canada Post into just another commercial courier service, moving farther away from their prime position of being Canada’s official carrier. Both sides in this dispute have a lot to lose if a strike endures. We suggest both sides in this issue need to take a step back and consider how the public will react to a long strike … and then sit down at the table, and keep at the negotiations until they find a compromise acceptable to both parties. – Black Press

Yale treaty is the toughest test yet B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The treaty with the Yale First Nation in the Fraser Canyon was hastily approved as the B.C. legislature adjourned for the summer last week. This treaty was by far the most significant work of the legislature session, and it may make or break the hugely expensive B.C. treaty effort. Yet it received all of four hours of debate during the abbreviated spring legislature session and will probably get little attention when it reaches the House of Commons for final approval. A few eyebrows were raised when Chief Justice Lance Finch of the B.C. Court of Appeal entered the legislature to give royal assent to the treaty and a handful of other bills. This would

normally be the duty of Lt.-Gov. Steven Point, but he was on a four-day visit to promote literacy at reserves in the Quesnel and Williams Lake area. I’m advised by the lieutenantgovernor’s staff that this trip had been scheduled for some time, and his absence had nothing to do with the treaty awaiting his signature. It is purely a coincidence that Point is a former tribal chair of the Sto:lo Nation, which sent a delegation to the legislature to protest the Yale treaty just before it was tabled. The only substantive scrutiny of the treaty, and the only vote against it, came from independent Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson. He stressed that he supports the Yale’s right to a treaty, but detailed the Sto:lo’s objections. Their central objection is that the 150-member Yale band is an arbitrary creation of the Indian

Valley, where they were expected to abandon their traditional ways and become farmers. Sto:lo Nation president Joe Hall put it to me this way: “I don’t want to be like Donald Trump and look at people’s birth certificates, but the Yale are a Sto:lo band. They would have been chased out of there a long time ago if they weren’t.” In the treaty debate, Simpson put it to Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak that the federal and provincial governments have resorted to a “first-past-the-post” system to force progress on treaties. He said the tiny Yale community gets a huge advantage by completing a treaty, while some Sto:lo bands remain at an early stage of negotiations and still others aren’t in treaty talks. Polak cited a section that is now standard in modern treaties. It protects the constitutional rights of other aboriginals where

a court upholds a claim to Yale territory, which they will soon own as fee-simple property. Polak insisted the Yale treaty will ease tensions in the disputed fishing sites, where violent incidents have taken place. She argued that exclusive access to the main areas of dispute was long ago included in the Yale’s original reserves. The treaty will provide a process for temporary access by other people, native and non-native. We will see if she is right, perhaps as early as this summer. There are two regions of B.C. where the encroachment of European settlers led to shooting wars with aboriginal people. One was the Cariboo-Chilcotin and the other was the Fraser Canyon.

Letters Charitable donation or extortion? patrons in line and in the presence of the cashier, so the natural human instinct is to wish not to look like a cheapskate or to appear cold to the charity, and you’ll more likely comply and give, where in a neutral situation you likely might not. Besides, your wallet or purse is already open. How handy, for them! The charities obviously do it because it works, but what about the store? I have to wonder why any retail business would get into bed with some charity and agree to task its cashier staff with this additional duty, which slows the point of sale transaction and the lineup, and insults its own customer base.

Taxes too complex Even though I struggled through all the forms and redundant calculations in my 2010 income tax package weeks ago, I am still shaking my head. Albert Einstein said any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex but it takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction. The recent election campaign demonstrated once again how self-serving politicians, in their desperate desire to get elected, will promise inattentive voters a wide variety of elaborate programs. Over the years government bureaucrats, not known for genius, have been forced to invent more and more convoluted regulations and formulas to implement and finance these election promises. Einstein’s insight can be applied to the inefficiencies of government in the following way: In the absence of courageous genius, when self-serving politicians interact with inattentive voters the predictable result is an increase in the amount of bureaucratic mismanagement and in the number of complex regulations. If a political leader with a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – sincerely promises to simplify the Income Tax Act, he or she will get my vote.

If it doesn’t benefit in some way, then why on Earth are ever-increasing numbers of retail businesses stampeding to jump on board and participate in this new money pump? It isn’t a swollen sense of public duty. There has to be a benefit to them, and any benefit to the business from donating means that the request to donate to a charity is at least a partial lie, no matter how wonderful the charity’s name sounds. Whatever has motivated some retailers to insult their own customers by badgering them for charitable donations at the opportune moment their billfold or purse is out, if it isn’t stopped now it will not stop at all, it

will only expand. To this end I have begun a new practice of my own: Whenever possible when a cashier asks me if I also want to donate money to X Y or Z, my response will be, “No, and this sale is cancelled. I’m leaving without the merchandise.” Be sure to tell your manager that you lost a sale because the customer was asked for that charity donation.” Because until businesses understand that being an accomplice to this petty form of quasi-extortion actually results in a net loss, it won’t end, and an underhanded practice like this one needs to end. Mike Stuart

We are getting kicked around We need to look back to the beginnings of this HST fray and remember that it wasn’t just another tax that angered the public; it was the way it was done. No need to rewind that sordid story and its aftermath, but don’t think it won’t be a factor in the upcoming referendum vote. Taxpayers felt scorned, manipulated and disrespected by the political establishment and left without democratic representation as their elected representatives hung them out to dry and supported the tax, with the sole exception of Blair Leckstrom, but whom now supports it

as a cabinet minister. Such is the sad perversion wrought by the doctrine of party discipline which has hijacked democratic representation. The top few who run this province are gyrating with offers and maneuvers to save the tax, but it would be a huge mistake for taxpayers to roll over for these people. By offering a few minor adjustments to the original scheme they infer they think we are somewhat Pavlovian and can be made to do anything if we are given a treat, a pat and a promise they will actually make the adjustments after the vote. $7 million of our money



Do you agree with the idea to save pieces of the old Kawkawa bridge?

Are the changes to the HST enough to earn your vote to keep it?

To answer, go to the home page of our website:

Here’s how you responded:

allocated by the government arguing for the tax versus $250,000 for the against side is further cynical disrespect. I personally am astounded by the fact that in all the words of advocacy spoken and written by politicians, and for that matter some of the media, I have not heard a single, solitary word of concern or sympathy about where the money has to come from; the taxpayers pocket which is already taxed to hell. It has all been about

how HST best serves the government’s needs. So when you vote, just remember you are also voting not to be kicked around by an inadequate system of representation that should have seen your MLA fighting like a tiger for you because the vast majority of you clearly thought this tax was unfair. You need to teach the system a lesson; don’t trivialize me. Make them dig their own way out of the hole they dug for themselves in the first place. Roy Roope

Assistant chief electoral officer Anton Boegman shows postage-paid envelopes voters will use to mail HST referendum ballots in to be counted.

HST ballots are ready

Millions of packages will be mailed next week Tom Fletcher Black Press

If they’re not disrupted by a strike at Canada Post, more than three million voting packages will be sent out in mid-June so voters can have their say on the harmonized sales tax. Voting packages will be sent out the week of June 13 to Vancouver Island and B.C. Interior locations, Elections BC officials said in a media briefing Monday. Packages will be mailed to Lower Mainland homes the week of June 20, in an effort to have all delivered by June 24. Canada Post employees have begun rotating strike action. If the strike disrupts the province-wide ballot on the HST, Elections BC will extend its return period as necessary to give voters time to consider the choice. Assuming no major disruption in postal service, bal-

lots must be completed and returned to Elections BC by July 22. They can be mailed in or returned to one of 60 Service BC offices around the province. Assistant chief electoral officer Anton Boegman said Elections BC has allowed until Aug. 25 to count and verify every returned ballot, and announce a decision. Voters will mark a ballot yes or no to the referendum question: “Are you in favour of extinguishing the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) and reinstating the PST (Provincial Sales Tax) in conjunction with the GST (Goods and Services Tax)?” The ballots are to be marked and placed in a privacy envelope. That envelope goes inside a registration envelope that voters must sign and fill in their date of birth. That envelope goes into a postage-paid return envelope to be mailed or dropped off at a Service BC location.

Emma Miller sits aboard her horse Chrome during the Hope Riding Club’s weekend challenge day. Miller won first place in the Junior Division.

The day is meant to mimic real life situations where the horse has to willingly follow it’s rider or stand still while the rider clears branches in the path. The morning session was all in hand (rider leads horse with rope and halter) through the obstacles and the afternoon session had the rider mounted for the challenge, followed by a solo ride through a marked trail. In all, 10 riders participated. Five-



Riders overcome obstacles The Hope Riding Club hosted it’s first event of the year on Saturday, May 28 at the HRC club grounds on Bristol Island. The day was dubbed Obstacle Challenge Day. Horses and riders had to attempt a series of obstacles such as a water crossing, a log jump and the dreaded box. This is where the horse is placed in an area (box) and left to stand alone while the rider moved about 10 feet away.



year-old Emma Miller was the youngest rider. Results were as follows. Junior division: Emma Miller (first) Senior division: Denise Pascucci (first), Muriel McMullan (second), Danielle Taylor (third), Kirsten Adolph (fourth), Lee Pettit (fifth) and Whitney Medley (sixth). Participation ribbons went to : Shelly Taylor, Jenny Adolph and Jillian Adolph.

Thirteen years ago a group of wide-eyed little kids showed up to Kindergarten class confused and disorientated. These same students are here before you today, celebrating our graduation. Through a combination of good teachers, new friends and learning from our mistakes we were able to make the big-step from half day classes to full day classes in Grade One. As we learned the Sarah Henry basics of reading, writing and arithmetic we also learned the basics of life. We were taught about sharing, we learned to play nice, and we realized that sometimes life isn’t fair. At this young age we were already thinking about what we wanted to do when we grew up. I, personally, wanted to be a safari explorer. (Mark interjects) Actually, I still do! Throughout these adventurous years we were blessed with some truly fantastic teachers who taught us to enjoy learning and the value of playtime. The lessons these people showed us have and will stay with us for our entire lives. As we progressed into our teenage years our priorities shifted from playtime to homework and hanging out Mark Webber with friends. We gradually gained independence and would leave home unattended. Slowly, the excitement, and nervousness, of starting high school infected everyone. With high school came freedom and meeting new people. We were now expected to act with a little maturity, although that still hasn’t caught on to everyone yet. The next few years flew by, and it became necessary to strike a balance between schoolwork and fun activities. We would like to thank all of the amazing staff at Hope Secondary School for all of the support. You have been available before, after and during school and truly seem to care about every student’s success and futures. You became especially significant in our final year here. Our teachers would write reference letters, providing advice on post-secondary options, and much more. Thank you for all of the hours that you have put into extracurricular activities and events, such as Improv and all the sports teams. We would also like to thank Mrs. Floyd and Mr. Watchorn for keeping us in line and offering a helping hand whenever needed. Thanks to the parents who provided encouragement and unconditional belief in our abilities no matter what career path we want to pursue, even if it is to be a Safari explorer. You have always been confident in our futures and in us. Although we occasionally had our disagreements, we are so grateful for the never-ending advice and support. To the Class of 2011: Thank you for all the great memories we’ve made together. We have pushed each other to be better than we thought we could be, and because of you, we are all better people today. High school graduation is our first big accomplishment, but we still have many more to come. Many of us have the potential to become lawyers, world travelers, or politicians. The number of possibilities is staggering. We only have to work hard and never forget our goals and dreams. Everyone here has the ability to positively change humanity. To quote the great Tommy Douglas, IS YOURS “Courage, my friends; ‘tis not too late to build a better world”.


May your education and experience as a student serve you well in your career and your future. We wish you much happiness and fulfillment.

Congratulations to the Graduating Classes of 2011 May you continue your education and bring the benefits back home.

Congratulations on your graduation achievement! A message from your teachers, members of the Fraser-Cascade Teachers’ Association.

Community Canucks fever

Wants to educate and motivate women Kevin Mills Black Press

Grace Baptist Church is hosting a special event which could both inspire and move people. Guest speaker Feather Janz will share her personal story in her presentation called My Journey Thru Breast Cancer. Janz is a two-time breast cancer survivor. Her first diagnosis came in Abbotsford when she was just 23 years old. Her experience transformed her into an advocate and spokesperson who wanted to raise awareness. For the next few years she became a familiar face on the public speaking circuit, sharing her story with groups across Canada. Janz directed much of her discussion toward high school girls, promoting the importance of monthly breast selfexams. “I wanted to alleviate some of the fear involved with breast cancer. I wanted to educate people that you can recover,” said Janz. But that doesn’t mean you can be complacent, she added. Twelve years after first being diagnosed, Janz, then 35, had to face her second battle with the disease. Once again, she won. Now 39 and a mother of two, Janz is determined to expose and defeat this deadly foe. Her goal is to motivate and educate people about breast cancer. Now that she has two daughters of her own, Janz says she often wishes they could live in a world without the threat of breast cancer. Janz knows that one in eight women in B.C. will be diagnosed with breast cancer and she said it is the number one killer of women age 35-49. That’s why education is so important. Now working in the child care industry, Janz said she meets a lot of young mothers, some even recognize her. “One mom came up to me and asked me if I was the same Feather who talked at her high school, 10 years ago,” said Janz.

One of her many lessons that she share is life goes on after the disease. “I refer to myself as a survivor, but I don’t feel that I live my life in survivor mode.” Her talks often mix humour with the facts on the disease. She does it to set people at ease. “A lot of women tell me they were nervous coming. That they would get depressed.” But afterward, many of them thank her for sharing her story. Janz will speak on Saturday, June 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Grace Baptist Church, 949 3rd Ave. Hope. Doors open at 10:30 a.m. and lunch and child care will be provided. This is a free event, but donations will be accepted. Proceeds will go the CIBC Run For The Cure.

You CAN live a healthy life with Chronic Conditions

New app for drivers For beginning drivers who love their mobile devices, it’s the perfect thing. A new free app from ICBC now lets learners practice the driving knowledge test on their iPhones and other Apple mobile devices. The app also includes the complete Learn to Drive Smart guide, all driver licensing locations and selected videos to help new drivers prepare for their test and be safe on the roads.


“We believe this app will make it easier to practice, which we hope calms nerves and helps new drivers focus on learning to make smart driving decisions,” said Fred Hess, ICBC vice-president of driver licensing. The app’s practice test randomly generates 25 questions, replicating the real knowledge test, including correct procedures on right turns, driving in school zones and how to handle a vehicle that skids out of control.

Protecting the garden

Bylaw open house



Hope Community Garden held a scarecrow workshop for both kids and adults last week. The event allowed participants to show off their creative talents by building both fun and useful scarecrows.

Bear sightings on the rise Bear season has arrived and that means bears are out and about looking to fatten up from a long winter of hibernation. The District of Hope has received numerous reports of bear/human encounters in recent weeks. Attracting bears are bird feeders, garbage placed out in plastic bags for disposal and fruit trees, which will also be an attraction soon. Deterring bears from entering your property begins with you and everyone else within the community. People are responsible for the increase in bear/ human conflict. The District of Hope reminds residents to: T Dispose of garbage in approved garbage cans

TrashtoTreasure Local Hope residents will be placing their unwanted household items at the front of their properties where treasure hunters can help themselves.

and, T Don’t put your garbage out in plastic bags. T Only put out your garbage for pickup on the morning of pickup, not the night before. T Keep your garbage cans in a secure location (garage) with a sealed lid to prevent odors from escaping. T Reassess the need to have bird feeders on your property? All residents and businesses are encouraged to become “bear aware� and do your part by working together and educating children, grandchildren and any new residents to our community.

That was an experience that I will never forget... the volume of the nonstop cheering in Rogers Arena; the originality of costumes; the crowd’s joy and the repeated mantra of “Manny, Manny” when Malholtra was on the ice. Then there was the tension and nerves as we headed into the third period. “Boston was showing they had indeed come to

play, and the crowd was slightly down. “However, the goal to tie it up in the third period was unbelievable, and the crowd again was — if possible — even louder. “We were sitting in Section 122, and behind Tim Thomas, so when Burrows scored in O/T it was right there in front of us! “However, I could only see it on the JumboTron as the young men in front of me were on their feet so fast and totally screened my view!”
