Cooper wire theft is on the rise in Hope. Thieves have recently been targeting Telus cables and leaving dozens of residents and businesses without service for hours. There’s been 20 incidents of Telus cable theft in Hope since January, half of which occurred in August and September. “It’s an ongoing concern for police,” said Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth, adding that it’s important for witnesses to contact the RCMP immediately to help ensure thieves are caught. When Telus cables are tampered with, customers can loose service for up to 36 hours while technicians repair the damage. During this time residents are unable to make calls, including 911. “It’s a serious issue. These thieves are putting our customers lives at risk,” said Telus spokesperson Shawn Hall. “As the price of copper keeps going up, the incidents of cable theft has remained steady as well.” While a thief can earn up to $200 from a scrap dealer for copper wire,


Wire theft in Hope has increased over the last couple months as copper prices have continued to climb. Telus cables are being targeted.

Hall said each incident costs Telus $50,000 to restore service. The number of customers affected by these disruptions has dropped significantly over the last few years, he added, as a result of efforts by the company’s security department, local police forces and public tips. Another contributing factor is that Telus has replaced a lot of larger cable with fibre optics,

Economic development top priority for council candidates Hope Standard

Five incumbents will be vying for a seat on Hope council this fall. Coun. Scott Medlock has already announced his intention to seek reelection in November along with Couns. Donna Kropp, Peter Robb and Tim Hudie. Mayor Laurie French has also confirmed that he will be running for his second term in the district’s top spot. All five candidates have a platform that focuses on economic development as an essential part of the community’s success. Attracting younger families through job creation is a key part of this plan. “I’m the demographic this town is missing,” said 34-year-old Medlock, who is currently the youngest member on council. “I want to be able to do things to this community that attract my age group and their families here.

Cougar sighting near Kawkawa Lake A cougar was recently spotted roaming around the first beach area of Kawkawa Lake. While there’s been a heightened awareness of the animals this summer due to attacks on Vancouver Island, conservation officer Paul McFadden assures residents there’s no immediate threat locally. Sightings around the Kawkawa Lake area are not uncommon, as cougars hunt for deer, rabbits and raccons. “Cougars are just passing through,” said McFadden. “They’re very elusive and you hardly ever see them. If a cougar is persistent in an area that’s populated, then we’ll deal with that.”

According the Ministry of Environment, conflicts with cougars are currently on par with other years. Between April 1 and Sept. 7 – the busiest time of year for cougar sightings – the ministry received 1,362 complaints. By comparison, there were 1,854 sightings in the fiscal year 2010-11, 2,242 in 200910 and 1,792 in 2008-09. To date, 43 cougars have been killed this year - 27 by conservation officers and 16 by others such as the RCMP or public. During a similar period (April 1 Sept. 30) last year, 49 were killed. Cougar sightings can be reported to the 24-hour hotline at 1-877-952-7277.

A new committee has been launched in Hope to raise awareness about black bears. The group consists of many local organizations and residents, including the District of Hope, RCMP, FraserCascade School District, Hope Mountain Centre, Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, Hope Outdoor Club and Chawathil First Nation. Their goal is to reduce the number of humanbear conflicts through education, cooperation and support. “We want to increase public safety and ultimately the safety of the bears,” said Lydia Koot, current chair of the Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee. “It will not all happen overnight, but this is a start.” Garbage remains a big problem in the community. Koot said people are still not storing their trash properly and are putting garbage out too early, which conse-

quently attracts bears into residential areas. “A fed bear is a dead bear,” she added. “It’s our responsibility because it’s not the bears who make the garbage it’s us. You cannot blame them for it.” The committee is currently looking for volunteers to help with public education. Koot also hopes to have some funding in place soon to hire a coordinator for community-based programming.

A berry shortage has left more bears than usual scrounging for food around Hope this year. The Ministry of Environment’s Conservation Officer Service recorded 112 bear sightings in Hope between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. Since then, there’s been over 120 reports received. The increase is mainly due to a cold spring coupled with the heavy snowpack in the mountains. “It appears some of

the higher alpine berry crops may have failed and maybe won’t provide the food source that the bears usually have access to,” said conservation officer Paul McFadden. “I don’t know how that’s going to play out later in the year. If we get a really good cold snap and the bears are in really good shape and fattened up, then they’ll go into hibernation. If it lingers and tends to be a little bit warmer and they have access to salmon, then they’ll try and feed a bit longer to build up the calories they need to hibernate with.” Residents are encouraged to keep their barbecues clean, and remove other attractants such as ripened fruit and pet food. The Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee is working with Free Rein Associates on a food recovery program that involves fruit gleaning. For more information, contact the Hope Mountain Centre at 604-869-1274.

Air Force aids search for pilot Chopper went missing between Hope and Kelowna An extensive search is underway for a 61-year-old helicopter pilot that went missing somewhere between Hope and Kelowna on Friday night. Capt. David Burneau of the air force rescue squadron in Comox said a CC130 Hercules airplane has arrived from Winnipeg to assist 10 civilian aircraft – operated by Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA) volunteers flying from Chilliwack, Kamloops and Kelowna – in the search effort. Two military Buffalo fixed-wing airplanes and two Comorant helicopters are also looking for the Aero-

patiale A350 helicopter that was on route from Langley to Kelowna. “The weather has improved in the search area in the past couple of days and this has been a great help to the spotters in the aircraft,” said Burneau. “Over 90 per cent of the search area has been covered by our aircraft at least once. Despite the heavily forested and mountainous areas in which we are searching, the specially trained CASARA spotters flying aboard military aircraft have been invaluable in helping our personnel search the region.” However, the region being searched is

three-dimensional which means the area effectively doubles or triples. When searching mountains, Burneay said it is often necessary to fly low through the passes, enabling specially trained spotters to see the sides of the mountains and canyons. Qualified civilian pilots with an interest in helping the search effort are asked to contact their local CASARA organization. Anyone travelling along the Coquihalla Highway between Hope and the former toll booth on Sept. 16, from 6:30 to 7 p.m., that saw a helicopter is asked to call 1-877907-5040.

Weighing homework The carefree days of summer are at an end, and with the return to school comes the dreaded homework. What is homework and how much should a child get each day? These are common questions, and are difficult to answer because teachers and parents often differ on homework and its purpose. Surveys have found many parents are worried that homework eats into family time, and getting kids to do it is stressful. Although some parents appreciate the structure homework provides, others think it gets in the way of sports and other activities, and delays bedtime. Teachers don’t agree on the value of homework, either. Some educators view it as a way to extend learning; others see it as important for mastering skills like math or a new language; and yet others think it’s a waste of time. How much homework is sent home entirely depends on the teacher as there are no policies on homework at the district or provincial level. There is, however, a growing consensus that homework shouldn’t be just busy work, but should help children make connections and deepen their understanding of classroom lessons. Many teachers are moving towards project-based learning, in which students come up with a project of inquiry, such as analysing the value of a local stream. This would be a case where homework is useful as students get to work on a project of their own choosing. There are many resources for parents but it’s not always obvious where to go and what to do about this topic. Learn Now BC ( is one such resource. But most parents will have to use their best judgment when it comes to homework. If they think the quantity appears to outweigh the quality, it may be time to make a phone call. – Black Press

B.C. imports American-style politics B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The Americanization of Canadian and B.C. politics is gathering speed now that legislated four-year terms are finally settling in at the federal and provincial level. Scheduled elections are an important reform, but the downside is that they seem to lead inexorably to constant campaigning. The latest example is the B.C. Liberal Party’s website and radio campaign directed at upstart B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins. “Strange days indeed,” NDP leader Adrian Dix mused on his Facebook page. “The Liberals, after a week of nasty attacks on the NDP, launched an anti-John Cummins website. Absent a

policy agenda, the Liberals seem to want to blame others for their problems. This too will backfire as Ms. Clark is again misreading the public mood. People are demanding substance in politics these days, not photo ops and negative attacks.” I see nothing strange in Dix rushing to the defence of Cummins, who represents the NDP’s best hope for a move into the legislature’s west wing. It is a bit odd for Dix to accuse others of lacking policy, as he leads a party that has been distinguished by little other than negative political tactics since its near-death experience in 2001. This is almost as strange as the B.C. Liberals damning Cummins as a politician who “says one thing and does another.” Yeah, that can really come back to bite you. There hasn’t been much of an anti-Dix effort yet, but you can be sure there is one sitting on

rumour that the B.C. Liberal war room will soon unleash a gang of angry, unemployed HST stickmen.) The U.S. tactic of going negative early, to define your rivals before they can define themselves, has worked spectacularly for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives. They scorched federal Liberal leaders Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff, and public distaste for these methods does not seem to have hurt them. The anti-Cummins campaign has a similar style, and there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto. The website,, uses a bug-eyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gunwielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks.

Cummins defined himself as a Reform-Alliance-Conservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. His other two main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut their costs to fund transit.

Letters Liberals ‘hoping to dupe the public’ Q Upon implementation, former finance minster Colin Hansen and ex-premier Gordon Campbell deflected criticism of the HST by claiming the tax would be “revenue neutral.” In other words, government revenue would not increase. Now, according to Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, government revenue from the HST is critical to the health of the B.C. economy.

Re: Missing the Silver Creek Walker, Letters (Aug. 31) My heart swells with pride and my eyes with tears when I read Mr. and Mrs. Wainwright’s sincere letter about my late grandfather (my Opa) Franz Zinner. I am the oldest of the grandchildren. I wanted to tell you both how touched I was, how touched I am by your kind words. Both my grandparents meant the world to me and I would visit with them as often as I could and call them all the time to tell them how much I loved them. When the tragic news about the passing of my grandmother (my Oma) came, my Opa tried really hard to regain himself but I don’t think we’ll ever really know how hard it was for him. He was the bravest man I’ve ever known, but the loss of my Oma took its toll.

My Opa has always been a lover of animals and they sure loved him back. He needed to know that those animals he loved and took care of were going to continue being taken care of after his passing. This was the true testament of his devotion to these loving creatures. His neighbour, the lady walker, helped to take care of my Opa in his final days, and has always looked out for my grandparents – she loved them as they loved her, as I love her. My Opa was a kind soul and he was loved by all and to know that his absence was missed and that you both were touched by my Opa means the world to me. He will forever be missed, and now I have both my Oma and Opa together again, looking down on me, on us, and smiling. Melissa Berger

By hiding behind claims of an increased deficit, the B.C. Liberals are hoping to dupe the public. If we buy into the Liberal’s deceitful rhetoric, we allow them to undermine the funding of our social programs, all the time claiming to “put families first.” Lynne Marvell President, Fraser-Cascade Teachers’ Association


Re: B.C. deficit triples (Sept. 14) I am tired of reading articles by journalists who, like the B.C. Liberals, use the defeat of the HST as a means to confuse and scare British Columbians. Figures released by the B.C. Liberal finance ministry, and widely published in the press, suggest that the HST reversal means the province’s total debt is expected to reach $62.3 billion in the next three years. I don’t believe anything the Liberals say about the HST, and here is why: Q Before the May 2009 election, the B.C. Liberal government said it would not impose a harmonized sales tax.

Green taxes on local government agenda UBCM wants changes to carbon offset program Tom Fletcher Black Press

Municipal leaders are gathering for their annual convention in Vancouver at the end of September, and they’ll be calling for changes to green taxes imposed by the B.C. government. The Union of B.C. Municipalities executive has given high priority to a resolution from Smithers calling for changes to the province’s carbon offset program. Municipalities and regional districts, along with school districts and health authorities, are required to buy greenhouse gas emission credits to make their operations “carbon neutral,” with proceeds going to cleanup projects such as natural gas and cement plants. Smithers council is calling for carbon offset payments to be retained by each local government, to use for their own building retrofits, fuel-efficient vehicles or other emissions reduction strategies. Environment Minister Terry Lake has indicated he is considering such a change, after complaints that the carbon offset program is costing cash-strapped schools and hospitals millions every year. The Squamish-Lillooet Region-

al District is calling for a portion of carbon tax on fossil fuels to be directed to transit funding. That mirrors a proposal considered by Premier Christy Clark, who will be making her first keynote speech at the UBCM convention on Sept. 30. Resolutions from the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Colwood call for the province to reverse its ban on incandescent light bulbs, citing concern about the disposal of compact fluorescent lights. Fort St. John council has a resolution calling for five per cent of B.C.’s liquor store revenues to go to local drug and alcohol awareness and prevention programs for youth and adults. The UBCM passed a similar resolution in 2004, calling for a share of provincial liquor revenues to support homeless shelters and detox facilities. The District of Metchosin is seeking federal and provincial help to control its population of Canada geese, which has ballooned to between 3,000 and 5,000 with considerable losses to crops. The resolution says geese were introduced to southern Vancouver Island in the 1950s “to provide stock for hunting purposes.”



UBCM delegates will also vote on a resolution to allow local governments to offer online voting. The City of Vancouver has a pilot program in the works for advance polls in local elections, which take place across the province this November. Another hot topic at the convention will be Clark’s promise to create a new municipal auditorgeneral. Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong says the auditor will do “performance audits,” such as looking at projects cost-shared by the B.C. and federal governments to see which communities used them more efficiently.

Fewer wild fires this summer Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C. taxpayers got a break on forest fire costs this summer, but the transportation ministry is still busy with major repairs after an unseasonable number of road washouts. The latest closure is Highway 37A, leaving the northwestern B.C. community of Stewart without road access until a bridge 10 km east of the community is replaced. The Bitter Creek bridge washed out a couple weeks ago after more than 180 mm of rain fell over two days. Several other

Skeena district. Estimated cost of emergency response and repair is $5 million for the three areas. Heavy rains left a larger mess in the northeast of the province. A 64-km section of Highway 97 between Prince George and Chetwynd remains under construction after a 130 mm downpour in late June caused damage to 77 sites in the Pine Pass. Subsequent downpours in the Dawson Creek and Fort St. John areas damaged more bridges and roads, with emergency response and repair costs for the Peace region estimated at $38 million.

The Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley were spared widespread damage during the wet early summer. Major events include flood damage to five kilometres of Highway 3 in the Skagit Valley, and a late-June landslide that briefly closed the Trans-Canada Highway at Herrling Island west of Hope. In the Okanagan and Kootenay regions there were 60 weather damage events including slides, washouts, plugged or failed culverts and bridge approach washouts. Response and recovery costs in those regions are estimated at $18.7 million.

sections of Highway 37A were also washed out, forcing groceries to be brought in by barge along with heavy equipment for repairs. Highway 37 north of Stewart to the Yukon border has also been closed to traffic due to mud slides and flooding. The ministry reports that this year in the Bulkley-Stikine highways district there has been damage to 20 km of road, two bridges and eight large culverts. Another two bridges, two large culverts and two km of road have needed repair in the Fort George district, and two km of road damaged in the

NDP leader Adrian Dix is calling on the B.C. government to re-

instate the student grant program it canceled in 2004. B.C. was spending $80 million a year on grants to top up the fed-

eral-provincial student loan program. The NDP would reinstate a minimum tax on financial institutions to fund $100 million worth of grants per year, Dix said. With the next B.C. election now put off to May 2013, Dix has encouraged Premier Christy Clark to adopt his policy now to relieve debt that he said

now averages $27,000 for B.C. post-secondary grads. Dix said further details would have to be worked out with postsecondary institutions based on previous grant programs. “My own view is that being 10th in Canada in student grants, doubling tuition fees, and having the highest debt loads

for students is not the direction we need to be going when we’re asking young people and needing young people to get access to the very education they need to fill the jobs of the future.” The B.C. Liberals say average tuition paid in B.C. last year was $4,802, fourth lowest in Canada, and average student debt is third lowest.

Summer Watering



Bridge removal


A message from the District of Hope

EVEN Addresses: Sprinkle even number days 5-9am & 6-10pm ODD Addresses: Sprinkle odd number days 5-9am & 6-10pm

Effective June 1 to Sept. 30th

Be water wise...

• Deep soak your lawn weekly in the early morning or early evening when the least evaporation occurs • Give plants only the amount of water that they need • Use low-angle or pulsating sprinklers that produce large fat droplets of water • Set sprinklers to water the lawn, not sidewalks and driveways. • Adjust your lawn mower to a higher setting. A taller lawn shades roots and holds soil moisture better KERRIE-ANN SCHOENIT / THE STANDARD

Neelco Construction has been busy dismantling sections of the old Kawkawa Lake Bridge over the past several weeks and half of the structure is now removed. Crews still need to take out the upper trestles, deckings and river pilings. The bridge will be completely removed by the end of the month. Neelco Construction will then begin its clean-up process, and planting of trees and shrubs along the river banks.

BC Hydro will begin upgrading homes and businesses with new smart meters. Moving to a more efficient, modernized grid will create immediate savings for you, and it will help us all enjoy safe, reliable, and more affordable power for decades to come. Here’s what you can expect: s

Typically, meter installation will take place Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. PST.


Meter installers will have BC Hydro and Corix logos on their trucks and uniforms, and photo identification badges.


You don’t need to be home, as long as we have safe and clear access to your meter—please remove any physical modifications that prevent a meter exchange.


In most cases, the exchange will take less than 10 minutes.


You will experience a brief power interruption, in most cases it will last 60 seconds.

For more information about the smart meter installation process, visit


The Brigade Days pet show was well attended this year with a variety of animals. There were six dogs, three dwarf rabbits, a miniature horse and guinea pig. The event was sponsored by the Hedlund family, with soft drinks provided by Coopers Foods. In the biggest dog category, Thom Duck finished in first place followed by Mikayla Hahn. The smallest dog category went to Jessica Henderson and Ryan Blue, with Clayton Hahn in second place. Clayton Hahn and Ryan Blue also won the most colours category, followed by Jessica Henderson, Mikaela Peat and Mikayla Hahn tied for second. The talent show was also a success this year, attracting participants from around the Lower Mainland. There were five solo acts and one dance group. Hope’s Shay Johnson won the competition. Runners-up were Rachelle Veloso and Phoenix Belly Dancers. The Brigade Days photo display and trophy award winners reception takes place tonight (Sept. 21) at Hope Station House, from 6-8 p.m. The event is free to the public and complimentary light food will be served. For more info contact Ron Bennett at 604-860-0348.

Planting • Add 2 to 4” of organic material, such as peat or compost, to the soil, adding mulch to your garden slows evaporation • Native & adaptive plants will use less water, be resistant to local plant diseases & pests

Local singer auditions for TV show Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Benjamin Neufeld is hoping to show Canada that he’s got talent. The local 18-year-old singer is auditioning this week for the upcoming season of Canada’s Got Talent, which debuts on CityTV next March. The show is modeled after the American and British versions, which feature a three-strikes rule by the judges. Competition is open to acts of all ages and types, including singers, dancers, jugglers, comedians, magicians and trapeze artists. While he’s a bit nervous about the audition, Neufeld admits he’s looking forward to the experience regardless of the outcome. “All I can hope for is the best and pray,” he said. “I guarantee no one will be singing the songs I sing though.” Neufeld performs old country, blue grass, folk and gospel music. He grew up singing in church, school concerts and at local events. Neufeld admits he quickly found a connection to the

music his dad was performing. “Old country and that kind of music comes from the heart. It means more,” said Neufeld. “I like to communicate through singing. I think it’s a gift. Of course you can learn it, but it’s never the same as if you have it as a gift.” Winning Battle of the Acts at Hope Secondary School in April sparked a passion in Neufeld to pursue music as a career. While performing in front of a crowd of 500 students, he decided someday he wanted to be singing in New York’s Madison Square Garden. “Singing is like my friend, it’s the only thing I got really,” he said. “I really feel peaceful when I’m on stage. I like the feeling of applause and standing ovations.” Neufeld and his dad recently recorded a 10-song album with Bob Tarr at Hope Secondary School, which is set to be released in mid-October. The duo is also planning to record a gospel CD this fall. The new album will be $15 and available through backstage@hotmail. ca.

Two or three weeks from now, when the autumn weather has taken over in a serious way, a boatload of people will slip out of summer mode and realize that things have changed. They should have registered their kids in hockey, soccer or figure skating and it may be too late. If this describes you, let’s get on with it. People are depending on solid numbers so they can offer programs and your kids may be just the ones to help fill up some spots. Michelle Inancsi, skating pro for the Hope & District Figure Skating Club said on Monday, “If you’re going to register, please do it sooner than later, so we can maintain our ice times.” If the numbers aren’t there, unused figure skating ice times could be given over to public skating or hockey users. “Right now, we have about 25 to 30 skaters, which is pretty good for our first week — but we definitely have room for more people,” said Inancsi. “Canskate is always our biggest group. We currently have 15 but there’s still lots of room.”

The Canskaters hit the ice — sometimes “We have the kids skate while balancing quite literally — from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. on the bean bags on their heads and we use Tuesdays and Thursdays. Junior skaters them in relay races,” said Inancsi. “We also Sarah Steberl, Sarah Isbister and Baylie Pel- get them to skate around and pick up bean legrino have their lessons before that, then bags and throw them into hoops or other stick around to help with the targets. younger skaters. “They’re practicing stop“Those junior coaches,” ping and bending down, said Inancsi. “I couldn’t run then speeding up again — “Power skating the program without their and they don’t even realize goes through the help.” they’re skating,” laughed Armed with water-based basics of skating.

they are awarded badges from the Can Powerskate program. “We’re hoping we’ll have enough to run two groups: the beginners from 4:45 to 5:30 p.m. and the more advanced skaters from 5:30 to 6:15, p.m.,” said Inancsi. “Power skating goes through the basics of skating,” she explained. “It improves your stride, your edge work, turns, stopping and backwards skating. “It all depends on registration, though.” Inancsi was very appreciative of the executive, led by president Sheilagh Tepasse, which she said is a very easy group to work with. “They handle the administrative part of it, which saves me a lot of time,” said Inancsi. Registrar Lindsay Druet said the annual registration fees run from $305 for the Preschool noon-hour group, up through the Junior Academy at $475. Power skating is $210 for the 10 sessions. To help family budgets, the club will accept a series of post-dated cheques. “There’s also a sponsorship through Kidsport Canada, for families that can’t afford to put their kids in to sports,” said Druet. “We have a form for them to fill out.” Druet can be reached at 604-869-3237.
