Sucker’s Creek Bridge to be replaced Project will be completed with federal and provincial funding Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope is utilizing the government funding surplus from the new Kawkawa Lake Road Bridge to replace the Sucker’s Creek Bridge. The federal and provincial program criteria permits the increased scope because of its proximity to the original project. Only $5 million of the budgeted $10 million was spent on the Kawkawa Lake Road Bridge, which means residual funds can now be allocated to address the needs at Sucker’s Creek. “If we hadn’t received this ap-

proval it would have meant that money originally intended to fund Hope infrastructure would have been used elsewhere,” said former town manager Earl Rowe, who initially submitted the proposal on behalf of the district. “This means that a long-awaited repair that has been budgeted in Hope’s financial plan for several years is finally able to be accomplished. We would have had to spend 100 per cent on it and this way we’re getting two-thirds funding.” The proposal has been approved together with additional pathway

funding to better connect Union Bar to Kawkawa Lake Road, and signage/amenities to better utilize the site on the west side of the Kawkawa bridge for tourism. The Sucker’s Creek Bridge has been in imminent danger of falling into the water and blocking Thacker Mountain residents access to the community. The bridge has had several repairs over the years using creosote-soaked timbers. “The major hazard is likely vehicles crossing the bridge and pushing the whole structure into the creek bed,” said Rowe, noting repairs will be done “under traf-

fic” and during the Department of Fisheries window for in-creek work. “A further challenge in the design will be to ensure that there isn’t any incursion into the creek bed during construction to ensure we maintain the fisheries permit. At this point the only component that seems likely would be the removal of debris from the creek bed.” The district is currently working on the preliminary design and is expected to tender the project in May. The total estimated cost of the Sucker’s Creek Bridge replacement is $1.4 million.

Barrick Gold Corporation is currently looking into the feasibility of redeveloping the former Giant Mascot nickel mine into an allseasons resort. The Canadian company wants to find an alternative use for the land which is no longer providing economic benefit to the Hope area. Barrick owns surface rights to about 168 hectares (416 acres) of land straddling Highway 1 west of the Fraser River near Klahater Lake, as well as an additional 293 hectares (724 acres) on Zofka Ridge south of Stulkawhits (Texas) Creek. It also has mining rights to 4,856 hectares (12,000 acres) of land on the mountain. McKay Edwards, an independent consultant who has been hired by Barrick to conduct the feasibility analysis, said the location and existing mining footprint make it a good fit for redevelopment. With the growing population in the Fraser Valley, he sees the property

being utilized as both a day-use and destination resort. The plan for the lower parcel of land includes lodging, restaurants and resort housing. McKay said fishing, hiking, boating on the Fraser River and canoeing on Klahater Lake are possible outdoor activities that could be offered. Barrick would also consider having connecting trails to the upper mountain property, which would likely be turned into a ski resort. “If we did do something like this it would phased over many years and we would see early phases of resort development really relying on the town of Hope as the support facility for the resort,” said McKay, who has a background in urban planning specializing in resorts. “We really see the town of Hope being integral to the idea. We’ll be exploring this over the next while here trying to understand if it’s a good fit for the town, if the town would like to see something like this happen, and if so how could the town and the resort partner in a way that would most benefit the

town.” If the all-seasons resort is built, Tyler Mattheis, executive director of Advantage Hope, said it will not only provide stable jobs but also serve to solidify the Fraser Canyon as a destination for domestic and international tourists. “It’s congruent with our efforts to market Hope as a regional package,” he added. Barrick is currently in the process of consultation with First Nations and nearby residents. The company plans to hold a public information meeting on the project later this year to get additional feedback from people living in Hope and the Fraser Valley Regional District. The initial discovery of the Giant Mascot property was made in 1923 by trapper Carl Zofka. The site operated as an underground copper and nickel mine from 1959-1974. Since then, buildings have been removed from the property and areas revegetated. Barrick acquired the mine through a merger with with Homestake Mining Company in 2001.

Premier calls local byelection Voters in Chilliwack-Hope will head to the polls April 19 Robert Freeman Black Press

A byelection in ChilliwackHope has been called for April 19, the same day residents in Port Moody-Coquitlam go to the polls. Sara MacIntyre, the premier’s director of communications, said the date was chosen to avoid voting day conflicting with Easter holidays, and to allow some degree of resolution to the teachers’ dispute before asking voters to cast a ballot BC Conservative candidate John Martin said the timing of the byelection wasn’t unexpected, but not for the reasons outlined by the premier’s spokesperson. “The premier pretty much ran out the clock on calling the Port Moody-Coquitlam byelection,” he said. Clark had to call a byelection in that riding by April 7, according to the rules set out by Elections BC. Martin said in a press release that voters in Chilliwack-Hope are “concerned about the high cost of living, the safety of their communities and the air quality in the Fraser Valley.” “I will be working hard to

promote the BC Conservative message,” he said. “We are the only party pledging to eliminate the carbon tax, the only party to stop the Liberal catch-andrelease justice system, and I am the only candidate that took a solid stand against a Liberal garbage incinerator that will pollute our air.” BC Liberal candidate Laurie Throness said the byelection call is “wonderful” news. “The clock has started ticking,” he said. “It’s an exciting and invigorating moment.” He said voters will have a choice to support the BC Liber-

al government that has “maintained a strong and vibrant economy for a decade,” or support the NDP with “disastrous results” for the economy. NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony said the byelection call is “welcome news” and she is “thrilled” for voters in the riding, who were getting increasingly frustrated by the delay. With a firm date for the byelection, she believes undecided voters will now focus on their election choices. “There’s a lot of people who are still deciding who they will vote for,” she said.

Undecided voters, and those who didn’t vote in the previous provincial elections, may be key for the NDP and for the Conservatives to take the riding away from the BC Liberals. O’Mahony said three issues seem top-of-mind to voters she has talked to — increased premiums for the medical services plan, health care delivery in rural areas of the riding, and “jobs, jobs, jobs.” Post-secondary funding cuts made by the BC Liberal government is “the wrong direction” to address the shortage of skilled and trained workers in B.C. “We need to really be thinking about that, if we want to have some meaningful discussions (about) good-paying jobs,” she said. The BC Conservatives have opened up a campaign office at 45609 Luckakuck Way, the site of the former Blockbuster video store. The BC Liberal campaign office is located at 44500 South Sumas, with a satellite office at 273 Wallace St. in Hope. The NDP has three campaign offices: 454 Wallace St. in Hope, 8615 Young Rd. in Chilliwack and 7078 Pioneer Ave. in Agassiz.

Liberal MLA joins BC Conservative party Robert Freeman Black Press

The BC Conservative campaign in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection got a boost Monday with the defection of Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen from the BC Liberal Party. “It’s great news,” said BC Conservative candidate John Martin. “It’s a boost to our party and to our campaign in ChilliwackHope.” “The Liberals are in free-fall and fading

fast,” he added. “There has to be someone credible to keep the NDP away, and the Liberals aren’t going to be able to do it.” UFV political science department head Hamis Telford suggested van Dongen’s departure may be the start of an “exodus” of backbench Liberals unhappy with the leadership of Premier Christy Clark. “It’s not terribly surprising Mr. van Dongen has jumped ... he was unable to conceal his dislike for Premier Clark,” Telford said. Telford said more surprising was van

The approved 2012 Hope & District Recreation budget offers no increase in funding. Hope Arena and Dan Sharrers Aquatic Centre will see the district finance $958,599 and the Fraser Valley Regional District Area B $461,229. In order to provide the same level of services, $28,397 has been slashed from the budget through the deferral of new bleacher heaters, reduction of administration supplies and decrease of transfer funds to reserve. Recreation funding will also stay the same in 2012. Hope’s share of the budget is $91,966, while Area A is responsible for $9,162 and Area B $44,296. The FVRD has approved a two per cent funding increase for Almer Carlson Pool in Boston Bar in 2012, with the budget at $63,176. Milly Marshall, who manages the rec centre in Hope, said highlights of 2011 included the completion of the arena expansion project, are-

includes roller shades, an upgraded sound system, and cupboards, counters and a sink in the new multipurpose room. Marshall said most of the projects budgeted are required primarily for safety reasons due to aging infrastructure.

On Saturday morning, the Hope Fire Department was called out to a reported structure fire at Thunderbird Motel. When firefighters arrived on scene at about 6 a.m.,

they found a burnt mattress outside a ground floor unit. “A smoke alarm quickly alerted occupants of neighbouring units who assisted the lone occupant of the room to safety, extinguished the fire and removed the mattress prior to our arrival,” said DeSorcy. “It’s further proof that a working smoke alarm alerts all to a fire emergency.” The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Hope Fire Department and Hope RCMP.

The B.C. Teachers’ Federation is going back to court to challenge the legislation that has put an end to its latest strike action. At a news conference in Vancouver last Wednesday, BCTF president Susan Lambert announced that union members will take part in a province-wide vote on April 17 and 18 to decide if they will withhold voluntary extra-curricular duties to protest Bill 22. The legislation gives the provincial government the authority to impose heavy fines for strike action during an imposed sixmonth cooling-off period. A second member vote would have to be held with majority support before the union approves any strike action that would defy Bill 22 and trigger fines of $1.3 million a day for the union and $475 a day for individual teachers. Year-end report cards will be completed to allow students to apply for scholarships and post-secondary education, Lambert said. Lambert appeared to rule

out any further work-torule action as students return from spring break, but she left the door open for individual districts to begin immediately withholding voluntary extra-curricular duties such as coaching that are done outside of school hours. “We’re a federation of autonomous locals, and yes,

they will be making their own decisions,” Lambert said. “The plan envisions a province-wide action, and that would be one that would I guess join up with the local actions that have already been started.” Bill 22 goes beyond forcing an end to the strike that has had teachers refusing to com-

plete report cards or meet with administrators since last September. It reimposes restrictions on class size and special needs support that a B.C. Supreme Court decision last year ruled were done without adequate consultation. Lambert said that will be a focus of new legal action. “Bill 22 addresses the judgment by repealing it in one paragraph and reinstating it in the next,” she said. “That’s more than arrogant.” Education Minister George Abbott returns this week from a 10-day visit to China promoting educational exchange. He said he will appoint a mediator when he returns, to seek agreement within the terms of the government’s two-year wage freeze. The BCTF did not release the “action plan” worked out during delegate meetings in Vancouver this week, but did indicate that it rejects a provision of Bill 22 that could pay teachers extra if they teach classes of more than 30 students. Lambert termed the extra pay offer “cash for kids” and called it “totally unethical.”

New environmental regulations for waste-to-energy facilities Robert Freeman Black Press

All proposed waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities, no matter what size, will be reviewed under new regulations, B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake announced Monday in Chilliwack. Lake told reporters that he was making the announcement to clear up “misinformation” that Metro Vancouver is going ahead with plans to build a WTE facility without consulting the Fraser Valley Regional District. Metro Vancouver’s solid waste management plan, which includes the possibility of a WTE facility, has been approved by the ministry, but Lake said no “concrete” WTE method is on the table.

Under the existing regulation, a WTE added, “so we wanted to assure people facility must reach a certain size before that whatever proposal comes forward a full environmental assessment is trig- (at Metro Vancouver) that it will undergered. go the most rigourous “What we’re anenvironmental review nouncing today is that possible in B.C.,” he “All residents of the all WTE (facilities) in said. the Lower Mainland or Public hearings are Fraser Valley will have Fraser Valley, no matrequired under the ter what size they are, the ability for full input environmental review will have to go through into the environmental process. a full and mandatory “All residents of the environmental assessFraser Valley will have assessment process.” ment because of the the ability for full input strengthening of the into the environmental Terry Lake regulations,” Lake said. assessment process,” “We know that air Lake said. “All conquality is a critical iscerns will be taken into sue for residents of the Fraser Valley,” he account in that way.”

PHOTO CORNER There are certain times of the year that seem to favor photography. It’s a toss up between Christmas and Halloween. With certain age groups Halloween is probably number one. Easter is one of those times that’s not big on the must get photos list, although it is a very colorful time of year and lots of fun for kids. The Easter egg hunt offers plenty of opportunities to get some great shots when the kids find all those sweets hiding in some very odd places. Now, since you know where the Easter Bunny left all those eggs and candies you can anticipate the shot. So, when the kids find them you are already set. Organized community events also offer great opportunities for some great pictures. There will be an event happening at the Silver Creek Elementary School on Sunday April 8th. This has been going on for some time now and is a lot of fun for the whole family. Remember the days when we boiled eggs then dipped them in bowls of food coloring. I am sure there is an egg coloring application for your iPhone including a digital egg. There must be.

Economy over the environment The alarm has been raised that the federal government is about to turn the clock back on fisheries protection by about 35 years. According to documents released by retired fisheries biologist Otto Langer and introduced in the House of Commons by New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly last week, the government plans to strip habitat protection for fish in Section 35 of the Fisheries Act, effectively making creek and stream protection a thing of the past. Documents produced by Langer indicate the government plans to remove a ban against activity that results in the “harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat” and replacing it with a ban on activity that has an “adverse effect on a fish of economic, cultural or ecological value.” While on the surface, it looks like the changes would protect fish, it’s not clear how, when fish rely on a healthy environment, ecosystem or habitat to thrive. If it can’t be proven that a species of fish has special value, then can the habitat – creek, river or stream – be legally destroyed? Many have heard stories of property owners who were prevented from subdividing because there’s a ditch in the way that sometimes has fish in it. And there are times when it’s hard to understand the “economic” or “environmental” value of a creek or stream, but lack of knowledge or understanding about how our watersheds work is the reason most of them were paved over, culverted or diverted in the 1960s and 1970s, leaving us low fish returns today. Ignoring for a moment the secretive way the government appears to be moving on this matter, the idea that fish, and the rest of the planet, can be altered unless an economic argument can be made to save it, is short-sighted at best. – Black Press

B.C. VIEWS

Payroll control and the BCTF

Tom Fletcher Both NDP leader Adrian Dix and his education critic Robin Austin have recently tried to sell the media a fictitious story about the party’s successful history of negotiations with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. With the ritual combat between the BCTF and the B.C. government flaring once again in early March, Dix bragged to reporters that the last time he was involved in teacher talks, it resulted in a 0-02 wage settlement. That was in 1998, when Dix was working for then-premier Glen Clark. The real 1998 story is useful, because then as now, the B.C. government was in a financial squeeze and looking at a huge set of negotiations with government

unions in health and other sectors as well as education. Glen Clark, an ex-industrial union organizer, was known for pushing negotiators aside and taking control of hot files. The premier’s office took the lead in teacher talks, trying to set a strong precedent for low wage settlements similar to today’s “net zero” mandate. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, representing the school districts, was marginalized and treated with the same disdain that the BCTF still reserves for them. And the result was an agreement where the union bartered higher wages for hundreds more positions and other benefit gains. This was one of the key mistakes that led to today’s showdown over class size and composition. Once trustees got a look at the premier’s 1998 deal, they refused to sign. For the first and only time, the government had to legislate the

Control over staffing levels is what the NDP let slip to the BCTF in 1998. And it is what the B.C. Liberals took back in 2002, with legislation that removed class size and composition from bargaining. In the constantly repeated BCTF rhetoric, this was the “illegal stripping” of union contract terms that was struck down in April 2011 by the B.C. Supreme Court. A closer reading of Justice Susan Griffin’s decision shows that she gave Education Minister George Abbott an out. If the province replaces staffing level bargaining with “an equivalent process of good faith consultations or negotiation, then the legislation might not be an interference with

freedom of association….” Bill 22 was written with this decision in mind, reasserting the government’s control over the payroll with a $165 million fund for special needs and a mediator to demonstrate those “good faith consultations.” University of Victoria business professor Ken Thornicroft noted last week that ceding control over class size to the union amounts to delegating authority over spending to someone who is not elected.

Not speaking up makes us powerless

Over the past few weeks I have been researching the details of the pension plan offered to Canada’s retired MPs. MP’s receive between $157,000 and $314,000 per year – the average Canadian earns $45,000. Canada’s national debt is now over $580 billion and growing. After six years of service, retired MP’s are entitled to a pension beginning at age 55. The average Canadian does not have a pension other than what they are able to save and the minimal government pensions. We have seniors in our country who are going to food banks and free meal centers as they cannot pay their rent and buy food. Most worked all their lives, paid taxes and are devastated to now have to ask for help. The average MP pension is $78,000. I have no doubt that MP’s feel that they deserve this, and perhaps they do. Sadly, what we deserve and what we can afford are two different issues. We cannot afford these pensions as long as the government is debating whether or not to raise the level of eligibility to 67 from

65 to save money. Not as long as we have hard working Canadians who have reached their senior years and now struggle to keep a roof over their heads and food on their tables. If these people had received between $157,000 and $314,000 per year, they could have been able to set aside a retirement fund. Instead they worked for $45,000 and struggled to raise their families while paying taxes. MP’s pension plans are banked not invested. MP’s pension plan is government regulated to grow at a rate of 10.4 per cent per year. If the interest rate does not generate this growth, the Canadian people top it up to make sure it reaches its 10.4 per cent mandate. Canadians who are lucky enough to have a workplace pension plan are tied to the growth or decline of their pension’s investments. The average pension plan has decreased approximately 20 per cent in this latest economic decline. Seniors who have invested with the plan of living off of the interest from their investments are struggling to get by with record low returns.

The government’s proposed review of the MP pension plan is to be headed by Tony Clement, a long-time Conservative and future recipient of the gold plated pension plan. You may remember Clement from the questions regarding the $50 million spent for the G8 summit, most of which ended up in his riding for projects that would require some mental gymnastics to see the relationship between the summit and the way the money was spent. He has yet to fully discuss this issue. Is this the person we trust to arrive at an objective, fair conclusion? Please don’t hold back your opinion and feel powerless. That feeling is what makes us powerless. If everyone who felt as I do called or emailed their MP and expressed their concerns, they would need to take our concerns seriously. If everyone who felt as I do printed out a petition requesting an independent review and got at least 25 people to sign it their MP would be required to present it in the House of Commons.

We all should have access to free tax preparation software It is interesting to note that our governments provide for free a form for reporting income but no tax preparation software. The cost of the software availability online at the CRA site would be offset by the savings realized when taxpayers file electronically. Forcing taxpayers to pay private software compa-

nies is akin to an extra tax. It would be interesting to find out how much these software providers contribute to political parties. Maybe everyone should file on a written form one year … and convince the government to do the logical thing. Gilles Parizeau

Tanning law is ‘poorly thought out’ The proposed legislation banning commercial tanning by people under the age of 18 is a classic example of bad law. This proposal is an insult to our younger citizens. The vast majority of young people are intelligent and, given good information, are quite capable of making sound decisions in their own best interests. Circumventing this proposed law is too easy. A quick trip to the hardware store and you can buy the components for a cheap home tanning bed. If the instructions are not available online they probably will be by the time you read this. In addition, has anyone heard of fake ID? What is this proposal going to cost? Introducing government regulations without a system for administration and enforcement is nothing more than window dressing. Heaven forbid I should suspect government of political grandstanding. Are we now going to have a department of tanning complete with tanning cops and ticket books costing taxpayers a huge amount of money? The real benefits to this proposed legislation are very small and could, for the most part, be achieved through education and working with the tanning industry. Our current government’s track record for introducing poorly thought out legislative initiatives is getting rather lengthy. How many times do I have to say HST? Jack Carradice

New crime bill may have hidden costs MP Mark Strahl says stronger laws will keep dangerous offenders off the streets Robert Freeman Black Press

Flexing its majority muscle, the Tory government has delivered the get-tough crime bill promised in the last federal election. But when those laws will be enforced — and at what cost to B.C. taxpayers — will be the subject of complex negotiations between federal and provincial officials. C h i l l iw a ck - Fr a s e r Canyon MP Mark Strahl said he hopes the effect of the stronger laws, especially those that better protect children from sexual predators and that end the practice of house arrest for serious crimes, will be seen “immediately” in B.C. courts. “The measures contained in this legislation crack down on those who exploit children, traffic in illegal drugs and commit acts of violence and terror,” he said. “This bill will keep dangerous offenders off our streets and make our communities safer.”

But NDP Leader Adrian Dix, speaking after a Rotary Club lunch in Chilliwack, said the BC Liberals had not taken into account in the recent budget the costs of implementing the federal crime legislation. “There’s no question the cost will be in the hundreds of millions of dollars,” he said. “What’s problematic here is the vast increase in mandatory minimum sentences under two years, which will lead frankly to huge costs in our justice system.” The federal government is responsible for inmates jailed for over two years. Dix said the federal government “needs to step up and pay” for the increased provincial costs. “We need to ensure especially that violence is dealt with in our society ... but it’s not good enough to just pass a law and talk tough on crime,” he said. Mandatory minimum sentences for possession of small amounts of marijuana,

Dix caught without SkyTrain ticket Tom Fletcher Black Press

NDP leader Adrian Dix was let off with a warning after SkyTrain police caught him riding the transit system without a ticket on March 3. The incident came to light three weeks later after a Vancouver newspaper was tipped off by someone in the transit police, Dix told reporters at the legislature Monday. Dix said he has ridden transit thousands of times, and always buys a ticket. He couldn’t produce one when transit police asked him during a random check of passengers, and the situation was “entirely my fault,” Dix said. He was initially issued a ticket for riding without paying, but was later told that the ticket was reduced to a warning. Dix said since the March 3 incident, he always puts his proof of payment in his wallet when riding transit. Former NDP MLA and now Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson was fined $173 after he was caught in 2007 riding SkyTrain for two zones while only buying a one-zone ticket. Dix acknowledged that he decided to say nothing about his fare evasion incident. He rejected suggestions that his credibility was weakened by keeping quiet, or by “apples and oranges” comparisons to his production of a fake memo in an effort to protect former premier Glen Clark in a 1999 investigation into a casino licence. Dix was fired as Clark’s chief of staff, and Clark later resigned over the affair.

he added, “are going to clog our justice system” which is already seeing backlogs that result in judicial stays of charges against convicted criminals. In an email to Black Press, B.C. AttorneyGeneral Shirley Bond said that the provincial government supports the federal government’s commitment to

tackling crime and improving public safety. She pointed out that B.C. has “led the discussions on the need for the federal government to consult with us on proclamation dates.” “B.C. has also expressed its concerns about potential costs, and we have agreed to work constructively

with the federal government to ensure that implementation occurs over a sufficient amount of time,” she said. “With respect to costs and overall impacts to the system, this is complex and challenging to calculate. The factors that need to be considered, and are subject to fluctuation, include

crime rates at any given time, the availability of police, daily inmate counts, and client counts, for instance.” B.C. is “probably better positioned than most provinces to accommodate” the new legislation, said Bond, because the province is in the midst of a $185-million capital expansion — “the larg-

est in BC Corrections’ history.” Over the next two years, it will add 340 cells across the province to hold more than 600 offenders. The Quebec provincial government has vowed it will do everything in it can to limit implementation of the new legislation because of the anticipated costs.

Musical theatre production explores cultural identity Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society presents the Western Canada Theatre production of Ubuntu – The Cape Town Project in April. This haunting, soulful story combines poetry, dance and music to display the connection between family and community members. Ubuntu – The Cape Town Project follows Jabba, a young South African man who comes to Canada in search of the father who abandoned him when he was a toddler. The challenges he encounters takes the audience on a journey full of cultural clashes, heart break and secrets that although sad, pulses with life and hope. With a set made up of walls of suit-

cases, the cast – three Canadians and two actors from South Africa – enter and exit through this visually eye-catching backdrop as they create the illusion of journeying back and forth through time. “It’s really about identity and a person’s place in the world — about a man trying to keep a connection to his South African heritage yet trying to assimilate to the world he’s in,� said artistic director Daryl Cloran, adding that the theme is particularly relevant in Canada where so many people have their own tales of immigration. Ubuntu -The Cape Town Project came about when a group of Canadian actors journeyed to South Africa in 2005 to work in collaboration with the Baxter

Theatre Centre. Reciprocating, the actors then came to Canada to develop new work together with Canadian performers creating a unique style of theatre full of powerful music, movement and cinema. “We are keen to work with artists from countries where theatre still has a really relevant voice for political or social change,� explained Cloran. Ubuntu – The Cape Town Project starts at 8 p.m. on April 10. Tickets are $35 with discounts for seniors, students, members of arts organizations, or groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available through the box office in the front lobby of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, or online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

Chiefs season ends after game six loss Chilliwack eliminated in first round of BCHL playoffs by the Penticton Vees Eric J. Welsh Black Press

Confidence and optimism on Tuesday. Heartbreak and despair on Friday. A lot can change in three days, as the BCHL’s Chilliwack Chiefs discovered this week. On Tuesday night, the Chiefs were celebrating a 3-1 win over Penticton, whooping and hollering and considering the possibility of an epic first round playoff upset. By 9:12 p.m. Friday night, their season was over after a 4-0 loss to those same Vees in game six of their best-of-seven series. “We’ve gone through so much adversity — what we started with and what we finished with is incredible,” said local kid Josh Hansen minutes after the game ended, struggling to keep dry eyes. “I’ve never been with a team that was so together. Every day it was fun coming to the rink. We gave it a great effort this year and I’m proud of everyone.” The Chiefs poured everything they had into the must-win game, but this time pure skill overcame hard work. Backed by a vocal crowd of 2,457, Chilliwack came out playing the physical game that got them this far. Hansen set the tone a couple shifts in, leveling Penticton D-man Zach Urban behind the Vees net. But the special teams that were so key for the Chiefs through five games abandoned them on this night. Chilliwack had three power plays in the first period and came up empty three times. They didn’t look remotely threatening with the man advantage. They struck out on another power play early in period two, and ended the night 0 for 5. Chilliwack’s penalty kill was better, led by shot-blocking demon Michael Spring, who repeatedly threw himself in front of Mike Reilly point shots. “It’s not an easy thing to do, and that shows how much character he has and we respect him a lot for that,” said Hansen of one of Chilliwack’s six departing 20 year olds. The Vees opened the scoring five-on-five at 5:35 of period two on a flukey sort of goal. Steven Fogarty sent a backhand centering pass into the Chilliwack goal-mouth from behind the net, and Chiefs netminder Mitch Gillam started moving left to right. But Fogarty’s pass hit the skate of Chilliwack D-man Matthew Hutchinson, and Bryce Gervais slipped the puck between

Gillam and the goal-post for his third of the post-season. Penticton’s next goal came 13 minutes later, credited to Wade Murphy. Gillam stretched post to post to thwart Murphy as he tried to bury the rebound of a Mario Lucia shot. But the puck dropped behind him, and Gillam’s own left leg swept the puck across the goal-line to put the Vees up 2-0. Penticton’s power play finally broke through late in the middle frame. Travis St. Denis shoveled the puck into the goal-crease after a rush down the right wing. Lucia went to the blue paint and

chipped the puck up and over Gillam’s blocker to send the Vees to the third period with a seemingly insurmountable lead. Insurmountable it was. Chilliwack had another power play chance early in the final frame when Nick Buchanan hooked down David Bondra in front of the Penticton net. But the Chiefs struck out, and though they spent almost the entire third period buzzing around the Penticton goal, much maligned Vees keeper Chad Katunar stopped nine shots the rest of the way (and 32 overall) to preserve the shutout win.

“No one expected us to do anything, and for us to get two games against the best team in Canada is, you can’t ask for much more,” Hansen said. “We didn’t have the most talent in the league, but we had the most heart. We proved a lot against Penticton.” Joey Benik’s empty netter with 1:16 left wrapped up the scoring. The final whistle blew. The Chiefs shook hands with the Vees, took a couple laps around center ice to salute the fans, then headed to the dressing room.

SYNOPSIS OF PROPOSED BYLAWS •

The general intent of proposed Bylaw 1147, 2012 is to provide for the establishment of a service area for the provision of fire protection services within a portion of Electoral Area B of the Fraser Valley Regional District, commonly referred to as Sunshine Valley.
