Mark Strahl wins Tory nomination Black Press

Rock On The Rockers know how to have some serious fun Page 15

Mark Strahl was elected Conservative Party candidate for the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding at a nomination meeting held in Chilliwack Monday night. Some party members bristled at the shortened nomination period, but most seemed to accept the need to elect a candidate in anticipation of an election call, possibly this week. Strahl said in his nomination speech that there was some “urgency” to select a candidate

who can carry the party’s banner in an election campaign that could start “in a matter of days.” “I believe I am that candidate, and I hope to earn your trust here tonight,” he said. In contrast, his rival for the nomination, Ernie Charlton, highlighted his “real life experience” in the private sector, which he believed would resonate with voters in the election campaign as the party’s candidate would be “grilled on what qualifies him to deserve their vote.” “Yes, filling Chuck Strahl’s shoes will be difficult, but we can’t forget

these were once the cork boots of a logger,” he said. “It’s these experiences that Chuck Strahl brought to the table when first elected.” Former MP Grant McNally introduced Strahl to the packed meeting room at the Coast Hotel, saying the 32-year-old son of Chuck Strahl had worked for him for six years in his constituency office. But he said the candidate had “proved to me he was much more” than Strahl’s son. “Mark is his own man with strong and deep roots,” he said. Strahl promised in his speech,

if elected, he would “get tough on crime” and “put victims’ rights first, every time.” He also promised to work to get rid of the long gun registry, reduce taxes and make democratic reforms. “If elected, I will take these ideals to Ottawa,” he said. But some party members openly questioned the nine-day nomination period, imposed on the riding by national party officials. The usual nomination period is six to eight weeks. Continued page 2

adding that something she’s learned knocking on doors is that voters cast their ballot for the personality, as much as politics. “They don’t necessarily vote for the party, they look at the person,” she says. Julian says after meeting O’Mahony for the first time at a party fundraiser last Tuesday in Yarrow, he was “very impressed” with the candidate’s “energy” and her popularity with the audience of over 100 people. “That says to me she’s got what it takes to change the political landscape in the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding,” he says.

He said the C o n s e r v a t i v e government won’t budge on budget issues like “seniors in poverty” and “the rural health care crisis” so it was “very clear” to him the party is spoiling for an election.

and BUILDERS Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertips to help them better understand how warranty providers evaluate claims for possible design, labour or material defects in new homes. The Residential Construction Performance Guide is the newest online resource available on the Homeowner Protection Office website at www.hpo.bc.ca. It explains how homes covered by home warranty insurance should perform. Every new home built for sale by a licensed residential builder in B.C. is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. ““For most consumers, buying a new home is one of the largest financial investments they will make. So it’s essential that homebuyers can make that investment with confidence, knowing that they will not be faced with additional expenses to repair defects after they move in,” said Tony Gioventu, executive director of the Condominium Home Owners’ Association and an advocate for consumer protection. This simple, practical guide is easy to use. It outlines more than 200 possible defects that are searchable online. This includes the most common defect claims that might be submitted under a home warranty insurance policy – from windows that malfunction, to driveway or interior concrete floors that have cracked, to siding that has buckled. Designed primarily for conventional low-rise, wood-frame homes, the guide also provides some helpful guidelines for the common property of multi-unit buildings. Builders can also use the guide to help ensure that they deliver high performance homes.

Nomination timetable questioned Continued from front “It’s a mockery of democracy,” party member Alexander Moens said. “Our democracy is more important than the (PMO’s) agenda.” He said the nomination period was not long enough for a “democratic process for people who want to represent the riding to come forward. It weakens our democracy.” He said it also casts a shadow on MP Strahl’s legacy “because Chuck Strahl has been a member of Parliament with no spots … but this looks like an insider job.” Another in the packed meeting room said “we are the general membership” and could over-rule the meetings moderator decision not to have a question and answer period before the vote. “We have a right to ask questions,” he said. “We are the members, we are the people.”

Police charge suspect for rash of recent vehicle break-ins Greg Knill Black Press

RCMP are crediting the persistent efforts by the public for the arrest of a man they believe is responsible for a rash of vehicle break-ins. John Evan Mathew Wear was arrested Sunday night after a resident spotted a man sitting in his parked truck on Stuart Street. The 29-year-old former Chilliwack

resident has been charged with one count of theft under $5,000. But police say the investigation is continuing and more charges could be coming. In the past three weeks there have been more than 70 reports of vehicle break-ins in Hope. Police believed they knew who was responsible, said RCMP Corp. Mike Rail, but had to wait for an

opportunity to arrest a suspect. That chance came because of the regular reports to police by people whose vehicles had been vandalized, he said. “Part of the reason we were able to get after him was because of the information we were getting from the public,” Rail said. “We knew where to be looking and when to be looking.” Police were on patrol

Sunday evening when the truck owner saw a man, dressed in black, inside his vehicle. The owner chased the man down King Street toward 5th. RCMP Const. Glen Shippit was on patrol in the area when he spotted a man sweating and out of breath. The man was questioned and arrested as a suspect in the breakin. John Wear has since been charged, and will

remain in custody until his trial. Corp. Rail emphasized the importance of public involvement in crime prevention. Even minor incidents should be reported to police because they help investigators track trends and identify patterns. Rail urges Hope residents to call police if they see anything suspicious in their neighbourhood.

Judge rejects ‘shaken-baby’ diagnosis Black Press

A provincial court judge has ruled that shaking was not the cause of a baby girl’s brain injuries, which led to B.C. child authorities seizing the infant and her two older brothers more than three years ago. However, Judge Thomas Crabtree found the “unexplained injuries” while in her parents care justified the B.C. Children’s’ Ministry concern for the safety of all three children. The father had also been suspected earlier when an arm fracture in one of the older children was reported to the ministry. But that investigation ended when the injury was diagnosed a result of the child’s premature birth. Crabtree ruled the family is the “preferred environment” for children, and he gave the former Hope couple six months to satisfy the ministry’s safety

concerns. “Children are entitled to be protected from abuse and neglect, and this must be the overriding concern of the court,” the judge said, in his March 2 reasons for judgment. “The opportunity is now in the hands of the parents,” he said. “The children are in need of protection.” Parents Paul and Zabeth Bayne believe they may have only three more months to wait before all four of their children seized by the ministry are returned them. A baby born last month was seized by the ministry shortly after birth. “Three months isn’t such a long time to wait,” Zabeth Bayne said last week, especially given the three-year fight for custody the couple has been waging in court. “We want to know the (ministry’s) concerns, and how they think we can address those concerns,” she said. “The question is, is the

ministry going to work with us?” Judge Crabtree found the relationship between the Baynes and the ministry “deteriorated” after the couple talked to the media about their situation, while the two older children were in the care of grandparents. But he also found some reason for the Baynes mistrust given the “failure of the ministry to live up to the spirit” of an earlier mediation agreement. The Baynes contended the baby’s injuries occurred when an older brother, a toddler at the time, fell on top of her and they bumped heads in August, 2007. Zabeth took the child to hospital when she noticed a change in the baby’s feeding, and doctors there suspected it was a case of “shaken-baby” syndrome and notified the ministry. At trial, there was conflicting medical evidence about the cause of the injuries, but

Crabtree noted the court’s job is not to assign blame but to ensure the children are protected, and return them to the family, if possible. He did not accept the “shaken-baby” diagnosis, but ruled the injuries were “unexplained” so there was some question about parental care. But he noted that the Baynes had “put their lives and careers on hold” to maintain as much contact as possible with their children while they lived in the foster homes. Zabeth said the couple has been taking first aid courses and parental counselling to do “all we can to make ourselves better parents,” and she looked forward to learning the ministry’s concerns. The ministry has not commented publicly on the case since it went to court, but has told other media that its goal is to return the children to the parents when it is safe to do so.

After years of negotiations, a treaty between Canada, British Columbia, and the Yale First Nation moved forward in one of the final steps towards implementation. On March 12, 2010, band members gave their approval to a final agreement negotiated between the federal and provincial governments for over 16 years. The Yale Final Agreement, which was completed in 2010, now moves onto the provincial legislature and federal parliament for ratification. The band council and Chief Robert Hope has been meeting one-on-one with band members over the last year to explain the agreement to his band members in preparation for the vote. “We now look forward to B.C. and Canada ratifying the treaty and the parities working cooperatively to get ready for the effective date,” said Chief Hope, in a press statement release.

on misinformation,” added Wild. “These meetings are positive and based on facts.” As the treaty makes its way through the two levels of government for ratification, a process that Wild expects to take the next two years, the band is moving ahead on economic development, thanks, says Wild, to the provincial government agreeing to immediately sign over to the band a large block of land across the Fraser River, west of the community. The Qualark lands have potential for gravel extraction, tourism initiatives, logging and traditional uses. The approximately 500 hectare block is the largest piece of land in the land package, adds Wild. Sixty six band members, eligible to vote in the ratification process, voted in favor of the agreement. Voter turnout was 94 per cent. The Yale First Nation has approximately 97 members.

Members of the Vancouver Japanese Gardener’s Association set right to work, Sunday, March 20, raking, trimming and using their special skills to ready Hope’s traditional Japanese Friendship Garden for new growth. Their annual springtime arrival, to assist the District of Hope maintain the gardens, was set many years ago by Hope resident, Buddy Umemura, the man who spearheaded the building of the gardens, known in Japanese as Shinzen Koen. The gardens, officially opened on July 27, 1991, in recognition of the many Japanese-Canadians who were forced to abandon their homes and jobs on the coast, to be interned during WWII by the Canadian government at Tashme, in Sunshine Valley. Still backed by a dedicated group of local volunteers within Hope’s Japanese community, Buddy Umemura’s widow, Julie Umemura, has kept his dream of a garden alive. “My husband applied for the grant to build the garden, but the garden was also made possible by donations of time, materials and equipment,” from many local companies like Emil Anderson Construction and Hilbert Corbett, of Hope Ready Mix, added Julie Umemura. The small traditional Japanese garden, described as a tasteful arrangement of trees, shrubs, rocks, and stone lanterns, was funded jointly by the Japanese Canadian Redress Foundation and the B.C. government. Almost all of the local families within Hope’s Japanese community also contributed to the project. The garden was designed by Hiro Okusa, a well-known B.C. landscape architect, and built by members of the Vancouver Japanese Gardeners Association. Twenty-years later these skilled association members still take much pride in their cultural contribution to Hope and return to maintain the garden at no cost to the community. “We only give them lunch and cover the cost of gas,” added Umemura. “We are very fortunate to have such skilled volunteers.” The team, this year headed up by Hiro Kamoshita, set right to work on their arrival, sweeping through the gardens within two hours; clippers in hand the volunteers climbed into the trees for trimming and out onto the rocks and waterfall to reshape the garden’s many intricately designed shrubs. And with the world and Canada again faced with the threat of war 20 years later, the garden’s message remains clear. “I don’t think the Japanese people ever want to see the discrimination that we went through as Canadian citizens ever happen again,” said Umemura.

Welcome to B.C.’s burgeoning courthouse crunch A Black Press special series investigating the congestion and delays in B.C.’s legal system. By Jeff Nagel Black Press

A drunk driver with his young son in his car nearly hits two police officers and a bystander at the side of the road in Prince George, but is not held accountable for his actions. A hunter from Merritt is caught poaching protected big horn sheep near Williams Lake, yet never faces consequences. A Victoria-area man shoots a puppy belonging to a 12-year-old cancer survivor, is charged with animal cruelty, and ultimately goes unpunished. These are real cases recently thrown out of court in B.C., allowing those accused of crimes to walk free. The reason? Unacceptable delays stemming from chronic provincial government underfunding of the legal system, including courts, judges, prosecutors, support staff and legal aid. An estimated 2,000 additional criminal cases still stuck in the system have already been delayed so long, they are at risk of being thrown out as well. And there’s no end in sight. So clogged are the courts – particularly in Surrey – that judges are increasingly outspoken in denouncing the logjam and lack of resources that threaten the integrity of the entire system. “The backlog is so great and the courts so crowded that in many cases there will be an unreasonable delay should there be even one adjournment on a trial date,” warned Surrey Provincial Court Judge

Peder Gulbransen last November, as he threw out the prosecution of an impaired driver who waited 32 months for a trial date. “Justice delayed is justice denied,” ruled Judge Ronald Webb last year, in staying the case in Cranbrook against an accused cocaine dealer who waited more than two years for a trial expected to take just three hours. Another troubling example is that of an alleged child rapist in Coquitlam whose trial never went ahead because the system apparently couldn’t afford to translate victims’ statements quickly enough so the accused could understand them. Police requests for funding for the translations had been denied and the trial was repeatedly delayed. “It is very disturbing that the value of the complainants’ sexual, physical and emotional

integrity is less than the cost of translation and transcription,” Judge Marion Buller Bennett ruled last year. She ordered the multiple charges of assault, assault with a weapon, sexual assault, incest and sexual touching of a young person be dropped after a two-year wait. The judge called it “a tragedy” for all, including the accused – a man who was publicly identified but had no chance to clear his name. The case is now being reviewed by B.C. Representative for Children and Youth Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, who called it a “very grave” situation. “I’m very concerned about these delays,” she said in an interview. “You can see the alarm bells being raised in multiple places in British Columbia in the court system.” •••

EMPL

But judges’ hands are tied. They are bound by Supreme Court of Canada rulings that firmly limit how long cases can be prolonged before the constitutional right of the accused to a fair trial has been violated and a stay of proceedings must be entered. Defence lawyers can’t deliberately drag their feet to get a case tossed. In deciding a delay is unacceptable, judges count only the slowdowns attributed to the system itself or Crown-requested adjournments. They must also conclude the defendant was harmed in some way by the wait. But B.C.’s case backlog now leaves virtually no room for any kind of error that could cause delay. Some cases are quashed after as little as 14 months, and the applications become much harder for the Crown to fend off when the accused has waited more than 18 months. In Surrey, a typical one-day impaired driving trial is now being set for July of 2012 – an immediate 16-month time period that puts the case close to the cusp of being tossed from the start. Year-long-plus delays from the outset are now common at many courthouses around the province. The judges themselves tabled a damning report last September titled “Justice Delayed” that warned “thousands of cases are at risk” of being dropped due to too much time elapsing between charges being laid and an accused’s day in court. At that time, there were 17 fewer provincial court judges on the bench than in 2005 – a 12-per-cent decrease. Continued page 11

Opinion

Are we ready for The Big One? Good health is the cornerstone of a fulfilling life. Ask anyone who has had their health compromised, either by illness (cancer, diabetes, HIV, for starters) or physical injury. Complain as we do, Canadians have access to some pretty decent health care. We have doctors, medicine and hospitals. But watching the tsunami coverage and devastation in Japan highlights how easily that good health, access to doctors, and clean, effective hospitals can be taken away. With one fatal swoop, all that we’ve built up as a civilization can be eliminated. And the first thing to go is your health. Immediately after a disaster, each victim is clinging to life in some way. For many victims of the recent tsunami, the most essential item they needed was medicine that was floating away, or had run out, or was left behind when they evacuated. After medication comes clean water. Without it, we lack the basic ability to care for ourselves. We know that water is quickly contaminated following a disaster. Yet, how many Canadians have a clean and ready water supply? The lack of food, warmth, shelter and communication will only compound the devastation. And with the water from Japan’s earthquake swelling waters on our own west coast, we should all realize by now that disaster could happen, very close to home. Even here, in the sheltered Fraser Valley, a ripple effect of disaster is highly likely. Communications would be affected. Our emergency services, food supply, roads, housing and water could all be drained. Many of us would be worrying about friends and family closer to the water, should a tsunami affect British Columbia. Are you ready? ~ Black Press

VICTORIA – Rich Coleman is B.C.’s fourth energy minister in the past year, which is as good a measure as any of the political storm that has rocked the government. On only his second day on the job, Coleman was already showing why Premier Christy Clark calls him a “tough guy” who can stare down the big-spending BC Hydro. Clark is, of course, concerned that it may not be “good for families” if Hydro rates go up Tom 50 per cent in the Fletcher next five years. The city media made a big story out of how Coleman is considering pulling the plug on the smart meter program or some other expensive project like the Ruskin dam overhaul. Interim NDP leader Dawn Black is demanding that the new premier “tackle skyrocketing Hydro rates” now that she’s eliminated poverty by raising the minimum wage. Don’t hold your breath. What Coleman actually mused about in his first scrum as energy minister was “amortization” and such. It’s not a question of whether or not B.C.’s 20-year lapse in grid and dam upgrades needs fixing, only how fast it’s done. Take the Ruskin dam. Many B.C. residents are unaware of the string of hydro dams along the

540 Wallace St., Hope, B.C., every Thursday by Black Press.

Don’t play politics with BC Hydro north shore of the Fraser River, namely the Coquitlam, Alouette, Stave and Ruskin dams. They are mainly known for the campsites and recreational beaches on their reservoirs. These are among B.C.’s oldest hydro assets, privately developed. The Coquitlam River was dammed in 1914 and has recently had a second earth-fill dam added downstream to mitigate the inevitable earthquake catastrophe. The Stave Falls dam was completed in 1911 and the Ruskin dam followed in 1929. Their modest power output kept up with growing demand – at huge cost to salmon runs – and connecting tunnels between reservoirs also provide flood control. Ruskin dam is a mossy old concrete monolith wedged in a granite gorge. Until it’s completely rebuilt, even a moderate earthquake would not be good for families downstream in the village of Ruskin. The Ruskin upgrade alone is estimated at a staggering $800 million, if it starts next year and is done by 2018. It could be delayed to give Coleman and Clark a short-term political boost, if they want to gamble on a deadly dam failure. The resulting inland tsunami would have B.C. featured on CNN for a couple of weeks. Delaying this long-overdue work further will also certainly push the cost over $1 billion. Coleman could rein in BC Hydro without directly risking lives by

delaying smart meter installation. But as described last week, this project is also unavoidable, and delay can only lead to bigger costs and rate hikes. Coleman could possibly reduce the rate impact via privatization. According to BC Hydro’s most radical union, COPE local 378, this is imminent, as the utility’s contract with Accenture expires in 2013. COPE produced the infamous “Gordon Campbell wants to kill your grandma!” ad campaign for the 2009 election, and its penchant for overstatement continues. It issued a news release last week warning of the “possible breakup” of BC Hydro in outsourcing agreements as much as three times the size of the Accenture deal. (In 2003 BC Hydro contracted with Accenture to provide customer service, finance, information technology and other back-office functions.) A BC Hydro spokesman advises me that no, the utility is not considering breaking itself up into three entities, or greatly expanding its outsourcing. The next time you hear about a quick solution for rising electricity rates, take it with a grain of salt.

Looking for input on recreation

A call for some balance Re; Police Operation A young man with good intentions, who would like to be his brother’s keeper and does what he was raised to do, that is keep his community safe, makes a mistake. Is there anyone reading this that has never made a mistake? If so please contact me so we can have a discussion. I’m sure this young man is just as knowledgeable about his mistake as anyone and undoubtedly will never repeat it, but we need to give him credit for having a caring spirit. There are many cases where the “Good Samaritan Spirit” has prevented a disaster from happening when those authorized were not there, so please in a small town newspaper let’s try balance instead of sensationalism. Lloyd Forman

The anguish the people of Japan must be going through in the horrific aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami is unimaginable. Their calm stoicism and amazing resilience is to be greatly admired. Watching the international community rushing to help, as they have in other recent disasters, is also to be admired and it is deeply moving. The media have done a fantastic job of bringing this tragedy directly, and immediately, into the lives of every person on the planet and fostering an incredible sense of oneness and empathy with the people of Japan. However, the tragedy in Japan has raised fresh questions about the safety and advisability of nuclear power in earthquake-prone

ea ask for Shannon Th

parts of the world. For instance, the nuclear nightmare currently unfolding in Japan will undoubtedly put the brakes on any thought to expand nuclear power in an earthquake-prone state like California. That leaves a big question for California: How will they replace the carbon-intensive energy sources they currently rely on without resorting to nuclear power. Solar energy is definitely one clean energy option that California has in abundance, but it is also one of the more costly clean energy sources available. In the same spirit of oneness and empathy the world feels with the people of Japan, British Columbians should

ICBC investing in safer roads for Hope Most Hope residents have seen the signing and delineation improvements along Highway 3 near Skagit Bluffs. These are among the 67 road improvement projects ICBC invested in the Fraser Valley in 2010 to help make roads safer for everyone. ICBC launched the road improvement program in 1989 and since then, has invested approximately $100 million in projects across B.C. In 2010,

ICBC invested approximately $2.6 million in projects in the Fraser Valley and $9 million in 280 projects throughout B.C. A 2009 independent evaluation concluded that for every dollar invested, ICBC and customers see a return five to 12 times the investment. That is, for every dollar invested, ICBC and customers save $5.60 over two years and $12.80 over five years in reduced crash costs.

All proposed road improvement projects are assessed on their ability to make roads safer. “Our road improvement program is one aspect of our commitment to help make B.C. roads safer,” said Pump. ICBC also participates in engineering safety studies and works with communities to make sure road safety issues are considered in the planning of roadways and managing traffic.

An inspiring local International Woman’s Day celebration, hosted by the Hope and Area Transition Society and Hope Inclusion Project, was the sharing of hope, love, joy and gratitude. The event, held at the SOCIA building, drew 42 people, including women’s rights activist, Jean Scott, the namesake of Hope’s transition house. “Jean Scott was the guest speaker and received a standing ovation,” said event organizer, Cheryl Lynne Lacey, of the Transition Society. “She recounted the many reasons that women are special and she had a huge impact on the participants; she was cheered.” The large group, including the 15 women nominated locally for inspiring others, met to discuss the gains that have been made in women’s rights and the challenges and barriers women still face today. “It was the 100th anniversar y of International Women’s day which is why we chose to look at how far women have come in the last 100 years and how far we have to go in the next 100 years.

between five and 30 millisieverts – more than 10 million times as much as the Japanese radiation readings so far in B.C. Background radiation levels from natural sources in B.C. add up to an average of two to three millisieverts per year, according to the BCCDC. Health Canada is also adding nine more radiation monitoring stations in B.C., in addition to six units already in place along the coast. Residents are urged not to take or stockpile potassium iodide, which should be taken only when recommended by doctors and can otherwise cause side effects.

Physical courtroom space is in short supply in many areas, a result of the government’s 2002 decision to close 24 courthouses, including ones in Delta, Burnaby, Hope, Maple Ridge and Squamish, increasing the load on neighbouring courts.

Coping with the court crunch Continued from page 5 B.C. is the only province in Canada where the number of sitting judges decreased over that period, despite a growing population, rising caseload and increased complexity of many trials. Coupled with inadequate numbers of Crown prosecutors, court clerks and sheriffs, the report said, the available court time to handle cases is down significantly and is unable to keep pace with the rising demand. In Surrey alone, the report said, it would take three more full-time judges hearing criminal trials for two years to reduce wait times to acceptable levels. ••• Since those findings, there’s little sign of improvement. Six new judges have been appointed since October 2010, but others retired so the net increase is just two positions. Front-line prosecutors, lawyers and court staff believe that’s insufficient to stop the deterioration of the system. “The situation has gotten worse, undeniably,” said Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association. “It’s becoming more dire as the days go on.” Despite the extra judges, the number of adult criminal cases older than 18 months in the system climbed from just over 2,000 last fall to more than 2,100 by February, 2011. Trials aren’t just lined up far into the future but also stacked three and four deep on the same day – dates that Judge Webb called “hopelessly overbooked.” Staff shortages aren’t the only problem. Physical courtroom space is in short supply in many areas, a result of the government’s 2002 decision to close 24 courthouses, including ones in Delta, Burnaby, Hope, Maple Ridge and Squamish, increasing the load on neighbouring courts. Major criminal trials involving organized crime – such as the “Surrey Six” murders or the UN Gang prosecution –aren’t expected to be lost to delay. But Lakshman warns time-intensive mega-trials suck up vast amounts of resources for courts, police and prosecutors, leaving less time to dispense justice for more run-of-the-mill criminals. He argues any money saved by the province through justice system austerity is a false economy, considering the money blown bringing accused criminals to court but not quite to trial. Cases are being terminated after police have conducted a full investigation and submitted charge recommendations. After Crown has read the file and approved charges. After charges have been sworn in court. And after many appearances before a judge, prosecutor, clerk and sheriff – often with various witnesses waiting to testify. “It’s a complete waste of money,” Lakshman said. “It adds lunacy on top of a ridiculous situation.”

VICTORIA – B.C.’s minimum wage is going up from $8 an hour to $8.75 on May 1, with two more increases by next year. Premier Christy Clark made the announcement Wednesday after her first cabinet meeting. She called it a “long overdue first step� in a province where the

minimum wage hasn’t changed in a decade and is the lowest in Canada. When fully implemented, the pay of a minimum wage worker will increase by about $4,000 a year. The general hourly minimum wage rate rises to $8.75 on May 1, to $9.50 on Nov. 1 and to $10.25 on May 1, 2012. The $6 an hour training wage is also being eliminated this May 1.

A lower minimum will be set for restaurant and bar employees who serve alcohol: $8.50 an hour on May 1, $8.75 on Nov. 1 and $9 on May 1, 2012. Clark said that measure is similar to the minimum wage system in Ontario, and it reflects the tips earned by alcohol servers. “People who serve alcohol for a living will in many cases be earning more from

Clark denied that raising the minimum wage will cost jobs in the B.C. economy. “Less than three per cent of the population works at minimum wage,� Clark said. “It’s about 41,000 people, and a good portion of that will be working in an alcohol server jobs. So I don’t think it will cost jobs.�

Bad, bald and back

Rosenbaum returns for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Smallvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; swan song By Sheila Busteed TV Media BAD, BALD AND BACK: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be one heckuva super ending when Michael Rosenbaum dons a shaved head again and returns as the villainous Lex Luthor for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smallvilleâ&#x20AC;? series finale. The CW announced that the actor has signed on to reprise his infamous role for the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last episode, which is scheduled to air on Friday, May 13. Rosenbaum left the series at the end of Season 7, much to fansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dismay. In the Fortress of Solitude, his character had an epic confrontation with Clark Kent (played by Tom Welling) that ended with a seemingly deadly avalanche and the total destruction of the cave. However, Lexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was never found, and in the last episode heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll return to take his place in Superman lore as Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arch-enemy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m delighted to return for the series finale,â&#x20AC;? said Rosenbaum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Smallvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the great success it is. I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness and even their threats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to hug the old crew back in Vancouver one last time,â&#x20AC;? he continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and see all of my old friends once again.â&#x20AC;? The showrunners are equally thrilled that Rosenbaum has agreed to do the reprisal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like the stars are aligning, literally,â&#x20AC;? executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders said in a joint statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more excited about having Michael back. And as far as the way he returns, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be no doubt about how Lex becomes the

great rival in Clark Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. He is the villain of the story.â&#x20AC;? Fans can look forward to seeing more of Rosenbaum on TV this spring when he stars in the upcoming Fox comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking In.â&#x20AC;? NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;GIRLSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: The details are sparse so far, but there are certainly enough similarities to make viewers wonder if HBO is developing a show that could be the next â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sex and the City.â&#x20AC;? The specialty cable network has given the green light to Lena Dunham and her new comedy series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girls.â&#x20AC;? The show, which will commence filming in New York this spring, was created by and will star Dunham, who, at only 24 years old, is already an award-winning filmmaker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girlsâ&#x20AC;? will feature fresh humour aimed at Dunhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generation as it follows a group of twentysomething women through their various humiliations and triumphs in life. Even with the success of Dunhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tiny Furniture,â&#x20AC;? HBO has played this deal smart by bringing in some established talent to help it through development. The series is being produced by Hollywood heavyweight Judd Apatow, who helmed such blockbusters as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knocked Upâ&#x20AC;? (2007) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 40 Year Old Virginâ&#x20AC;? (2005). Apatow will be joined by co-executive producers Jenni Konner and Ilene S. Landress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lena Dunham quickly established herself as an important young talent with her first feature film,â&#x20AC;? said HBO Entertainment president Sue Naegle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thrilled to team up with her and fellow executive producers Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner for this exciting project.â&#x20AC;? Michael Rosenbaum will return as Lex Luthor for the finale of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smallvilleâ&#x20AC;?

Sports Marshall rink champs at wins BC Mixed Curling final Hope’s Doug Marshall, and his Chilliwack rink of Lisa Deputan, Darren Jarvis and Janet Klebe captured the 2011 Williams Moving & Storage BC Mixed Curling Championship title in Prince Rupert this past weekend. Marshall, who lives in Hope, but plays out of Chilliwack, finished on top of the field with a 6-1 round-robin record earning a direct spot into Saturday’s final, where they would eventually face Duncan’s Wes Craig rink. Marshall scored singles in the first four ends to lead 4-0. The teams traded deuces in the 5th and 6th ends, and Craig took a single in the 7th. With a 3 point lead and hammer advantage, Marshall made a triple take-out to score five points in the 8th end and seal the victory by a final score of 11-3. Kimberley’s Tom Buchy team advanced to the semi-final by defeating Sparwood’s Ken McHargue 7-6 in a tie-breaker, but was defeated by Craig 9-4. Round-robin results: Doug Marshall (Chilliwack) 6-1 Wes Craig (Kerry Park) 5-2 Tom Buchy (Kimberley) 4-3 Ken McHargue (Sparwood) 4-3 Dylan Somerton (Peace Arch) 3-4 Jared St. John (Penticton) 2-5 Michael Dahms (Prince George) 2-5 Craig Lepine (Langley) 2-5 Marshall and company now advance to the 2012 Canadian Mixed Curling Championship in Sudbury, Ontario November 12-19, 2011. In other areas of the country, BC’s Greg McAulay sits at 1-3 and Lynne Noble is at 2-2 at the Canadian Senior Curling Championships in Digby, NS; and Gary Cormack and his team will play their first game against Saskatchewan tonight in the opening draw of the Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championships in Edmonton, AB.

Players scramble for possession of the ball, during last year’s Rockers Soccer League playoff action. The league has grown from 8 teams to 12 for the coming season, which starts on April 12. Hope women, 30 years and older can contact Tara Field for placement on a team — but the spaces are limited, so act quickly. (Contact info at bottom of story.) ANNE RUSSELL PHOTO

Rockers a hit in women’s soccer By Barry Stewart The Hope Standard

A bunch of women, having serious fun — that’s what the Rockers Soccer League is all about. The Chilliwack-based over-30 league is set to start on April 12 and there’s still time for women to sign up, especially since the league has jumped from 8 teams to 12 this year. “We’ve had people and whole teams on waiting lists,” says league publicity officer Anne Russell, AKA ‘Rosedale Annie’, “so this year, Tara Field arranged for us to use the Sardis Secondary fields.” The league had been using two fields at Vedder Middle School for the past three years. Now the move to Sardis Secondary will allow three games to be played at once. Games are played in two shifts on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, so there will be no shortage of action in one location. The women play 7 a-side soccer, which uses smaller nets and only half of a regular field. That makes for shorter kicks, less running

and more scoring chances. No slide-tackles are allowed, keeping things a bit safer. The keepers are not allowed to punt the ball, so they have to toss it or put it on the ground for a pass. Russell says the league started as a result of her Rockers team getting continuously thrashed in a different league. “It was back in 2007, recalls Russell. “Cathy DeGroot noticed an ad for women’s spring soccer. She contacted her neighbour, Cheryl Hagen and Cheryl convinced 12 women to join the league, as the Rosedale Rockers. “We proceeded to get smucked a lot. Nine of the women had never played soccer before and we were mostly over 30 years old, playing in an open league. We decided we needed a league of our own.” Since the Rockers were organizing it, they got to choose the name. Rockers Soccer League had a nice ring to it. “One of the keys to our success has been the well-established networking skills of mums and working women,” says Russell.

“The biggest benefit has been the opportunity provided for women to have fun and put themselves first for a change.” Once the word got around, players started popping up and eight teams were formed, with names like ‘Tsunami’, ‘Killer Kleats’, and ‘Natural Disasters’. “The Green team had a strong association with Cheam Elementary,” says Russell. “There are sisters, cousins, and sisters-in-law playing... work colleagues and same-school moms... doctors, nurses, cops, and teachers... nursing mothers, cancer survivors — and there has been at least one grandmother.” “Our oldest player is about 54 and very fit. There are a few over 50 but I’d guess the average age is about 41.” They’re only going into their fourth season, but this league has really ignited some sporting passion in the players. “There was one goalie who was back playing, less than a month after having a baby — and I know of at least two players who

planned their pregnancies around the soccer season,” adds Russell. “They want their spring soccer!” There’s certainly a family feel to the games, with kids doing homework or playing with the family dog while Mom plays the game. Husbands and senior parents come along too. “There’s a dad coming out to coach his daughter’s team,” says Russell. “It’s kind of funny to see the dynamic of a 60-something dad coaching his 40 year-old daughter. He may have been her coach when he was 35 and she was 15. “Our team had one of the player’s sons start as our coach when he was 14. Now he’s off to college, so his 15 year-old brother will be taking his place. “The quality of play has definitely improved, with teams getting experience playing together,” adds Russell. Interested women — aged 30 or older — should promptly contact Tara Field at rockerssoccer@ hotmail.ca .
