Group feels bulldozed by city BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


ong before they heard the bad news, some members of the group looking to save Chilliwack’s Paramount Theatre from demolition felt constrained by the process put in place by city hall. Chilliwack city council voted sixto-one to demolish the Paramount Theatre at its afternoon meeting

Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount say they weren’t given a fair shake to save iconic building Aug. 21. Kim Mallory, who is a member of the Friends of the Chilliwack Paramount, said since June, the group wasn’t given a fair shake, and their plan faced roadblocks put up by Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO), city hall, and

even the Downtown BIA. “We are not developers, we are not wanting to open a for-profit business, we are a non-profit society looking to do something for the benefit of our community,” said Mallory, whose photography business is based in the Stacey Block

on Yale Road near Five Corners. “It feels like a losing battle.” While nearly every downtown business owner Mallory asked— including ever y restaurant— expressed support for the proposal to re-invent the cinema, the Downtown BIA remained silent and

unsupportive. Krista Butt, who owns Cornerstone Framing and Gallery on First Avenue, said she felt the group was up against the city’s downtown revitalization plan, which promotes the policy of “assembling development-ready land blocks.” This translates to “acquire and demolish,” according to some. Mallory fears—and she says she See PARAMOUNT, Page 7

Giant egg fails to crack record

Mounties help douse Agassiz forest fire

Behemoth is three times the average size of a chicken egg



he hosts of a Weaver Lake campground teamed up with Mounties Saturday night to stop a fire before it could jump into the treetops of the surrounding forest. According to police, fire broke out near the campground around 11 p.m. Saturday. The hosts of the campground contained the blaze using extinguishers and shovels. Upon arrival, Agassiz RCMP officers evacuated the campsite and joined to fight the flames. RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said the officers and the hosts managed to extinguish the fire, but it continued to reignite until forest firefighters arrived half an hour later with a water truck. The fire was extinguished by 3:30 a.m. Officials were back on the scene Sunday to ensure no embers remained.

Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson listens to a question from Chilliwack resident and PIPE UP member Sheila Muxlow after Anderson’s presentation to the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce on Aug. 23.

Pipeline a hard sell for company BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


inder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson outlined the benefits and downplayed safety concerns of his company’s proposed oil pipeline expansion at a Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce lunch meeting Thursday. Since 1961, there have been 78 spills on the 1,150-kilometre Trans Mountain pipeline that runs from the oil sands in Alberta through Chilliwack to the docks in Burnaby. Five of those spills were in the Fraser Valley and none in Chilliwack, according to Anderson. Regarding the possibility of a pipeline spill in the future? “I can never say never and I never will,” he told the audience. “But we live and breathe ensuring that this

doesn’t happen.” While the meeting was a Chamber of Commerce event, Anderson faced most questions from those openly opposed to the twinning project, including Michael Hale and Sheila Muxlow of the local anti-pipeline group Pro Information Pro Environment United People Network (PIPE UP). Ben West of the Wilderness Committee told Anderson that he and his company were on “the wrong side of history.” Hale quoted back something Anderson had said on the radio about building a pipeline supported by the community. “What if the public does not sup-

port the transport of bitumen?” Hale asked. “I can’t answer that,” Anderson said, adding that he would go through the National Energy Board application process and show that it can be done responsibly. “Social licence is something I’m told I need to get. I’m not sure how to get it.” Muxlow, who is a Chilliwack resident but who has worked for the Sierra Club in Alberta’s oil sands, asked Anderson why the company wasn’t open about when diluted bitumen was being moved, and why he wouldn’t admit the product is more corrosive and harder to clean up.

“There is no evidence that [diluted bitumen] has had any different effect than any other commodity running through it,” he said. Anderson said there was also no scientific basis to say that diluted bitumen sinks as soon as it hits water. He pointed to the 2007 leak of 250,000 litres of oil that covered homes, trees and lawns in Burnaby, and flowed 70,000 litres into Burrard inlet. Anderson said this crude oil was skimmed off the surface during the cleanup. But as Hale and Muxlow pointed out after the meeting, that was not a See PIPELINE, Page 7

600,000 fish shy of feeding natives BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


he 2012 sockeye season has been called “a complete disaster” by local First Nations, who blame politicians in Victoria and Ottawa. At the start of the season, First Nations were told they could catch up to one million sockeye for food, social and ceremonial purposes. “It’s late August and First Nations on the Fraser River, including some Vancouver Island First Nations, have only caught 400,000 sockeye,” said Sto:lo Tribal Council Grand Chief Clarence Pennier in a press release issued Friday. “We are 600,000 fish shy of the fish we need to feed our people.” Pennier said the federal government does not understand the importance of sockeye fisheries to the First Nations. He says the majority of local bands are small and impoverished with high rates of unemployment and equally high dependence on charity from Ottawa in the form of welfare, pensions and make-work programs. Pennier said the sockeye is a principal source of dietary protein and is also a vital traditional pursuit that keeps families together.

“Our people can’t afford to buy high protein foods throughout the year from places like Save-on-Foods or SuperValu. It all boils down to go fishing or go hungry.” Clarence Pennier “Our people can’t afford to buy high protein foods throughout the year from places like Canada Safeway, Save-on-Foods or SuperValu,” Pennier said. “It all boils down to go fishing or go hungry.” Blaming the low runs on Mother Nature isn’t good enough, according to Pennier. He blame the cumulative approach of “poorly managed sockeye stocks” by the federal government over recent years. He also blamedVictoria due to “negligent stewardship of fish habitat.” Pennier even connected government support for Enbridge’s Northern Gateway oil pipeline to the fisheries. “Both Ottawa and V ictor ia’s answers to this crisis appears to be the pending endorsement of the construction of a major pipeline in Northern B.C. by a company with an utterly disastrous environmental record on both sides of the 49th Parallel, the trashing of habitat provisions of the Fisheries Act via Bill C-38 and by firing federal employees whose job it is to protect salmon habitat,” said Pennier.

Members of the public, including project architects from Stantec, arrive at the official opening of UFV’s new Chilliwack campus at Canada Education Park in May.

Local campus has room to grow

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes


he University of the Fraser Valley is feeling the pinch of too many students and not enough money in the face of a continued provincial funding freeze in the coming year. “Enrolment will equal or surpass where we were last year,” said UFV provost and vice-president academic Eric Davis, noting 16,000 students attended the university last year. “That’s a challenge for us because we are servicing more students than we are funded for and we are running out of space.” UFV has been running at 105 per cent capacity the last couple of years, and the Abbotsford campus is especially stressed at 130 per cent capacity, said Davis. The new campus in Chilliwack, however, means students here aren’t feeling the space crunch quite as much. Moving to the new campus increased capacity in Chilliwack by 300 full-time equivalent (FTE) spaces. Since officials expect approxi-

. . . but Abbotsford is a different story for UFV

mately 1,600 FTEs at the new campus (including the 400 at the already established Trades and Technology Centre) and the new facility has the capacity to accommodate 1,900 FTE, there is actually a little bit of room to grow in Chilliwack. In UFV as a whole, however, 3,000 students are still on wait lists for courses, and that’s with a drop of more than 200 students from last year, said Davis. As such, students often have to wait for classes or select ones that might not be their first choice. UFV is trying to address the crunch by setting up more sections of classes when possible ,and tinkering with the registration process, but it isn’t resorting to increasing class sizes, said Davis. The provincial government used to provide extra funding as the number of students at an institution grew but stopped the practice a couple of years ago, said Davis. “Underlying it all is the fiscal crunch,” he said. “But they also felt there was capacity in the [post-secondary]

system as a whole.” While institutions in the Interior and northern B.C. may still have some growing room, that’s not the case in the Fraser Valley, one of the fastest growing regions in the province, he said. Although sympathetic to political pressures faced by the provincial government, Davis said students in Abbotsford and Chilliwack shouldn’t have to go to universities farther a field when they have one in their own backyard. “Other institutions are not making their quotas . . . logically the funding should be shifted from there to here, but politically that’s hard to do.” One way Chilliwack’s new campus will help relieve pressure on UFV Abbotsford is a phased swap of teacher education for kinesiology. The smaller one-year teacher education program will move to Abbotsford this year, while the larger, four-year kinesiology and physical education degree program will move to Chilliwack over the next

two years, where it will become part of the Faculty of Health Sciences (along with nursing, dental, and health care programs). To continue providing quality programs to all its students, UFV is becoming as “entrepreneurial” as possible to fill the funding gaps, according to Davis. The province provides 50 per cent of UFV’s funding, tuition provides 27 per cent and the university must come up with the rest. Davis concedes raising funds for the university does divert resources from the primary mandate of educating students. “I can’t give a figure but we devote a significant amount of time and money to the question,” he said. In an ideal but unlikely world, universities would be fully funded, said Davis. “It would be great to have 100 per cent funding, but that’s not going to happen, but it would be great if we at least got a bigger share of the pie.”

‘Pilot distraction’ led to hang-gliding death BY CHRISTOPHER REYNOLDS Vancouver Sun


he hang gliding accident that resulted in 27-year-old Lenami Godinez-Avila plunging to her death last spring was ultimately caused by a pair of distracted pilots, according to a report by the Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association of Canada.

“[T]he investigation assumes that pilot distraction resulted in a failure to perform recommended standardized safety procedures, resulting in the death of the passenger…,” stated HPAC investigator Martin Henry. Released last Wednesday, the report determined Godinez-Avila’s harness was not connected to the glider on takeoff, allowing her to fall

300 metres seconds after launching a tandem flight off Mount Woodside near Agassiz on April 28. The required “hang-check”—a test to ensure that harnesses are hooked in—had not been carried out by either instructor. Two HPAC-certified pilots, Jon Orders—who was flying with Godinez-Avila when she fell—and Shaun Wallace, were outfitting

Godinez-Avila and her boyfriend before takeoff. “[T]he two instructors appeared to deal with the two tandems as a team,” each one helping with preparation for the two launches, Henry stated. An effective division of responsibility may have allowed them to overlook the standard pre-flight passenger checks.



Council rescinds land policy with dark past BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


ust minutes after a special prosecutor in Chilliwack court last Tuesday outlined improper city development activities, city council rescinded an official policy that was part of the problem. Former City of Chilliwack director of development Grant Sanborn pleaded guilty to two regulatory offences, including one violation of the Agricultural Land Commission Act on Aug. 21. He is expected to be sentenced on Aug. 29. That violation had to do with the manipulation of borders for a residential development. In the Agricultural Land Commission’s (ALC) damning 2010 report into boundary adjustment subdivisions in Chilliwack between 1991 and 2009, the report authors pointed to a 1994 policy to place “a priority on public open space and residential development.” This was done in a way that “is inconsistent with the goals of the ALC Act to preserve

farmland and encourage its agricultural use.” Following the adoption of that policy, there were 28 boundary adjustment subdivisions approved that involved “non-buildable” parcels. The first recommended action items in the 2010 report was to request that the city “immediately amend or repeal policy directive F-3 and to notify the ALC accordingly.” More than two years later, at the Aug. 21 meeting of council last week, council voted in favour of a staff recommendation to rescind the policy in question. “Given that boundary adjustments and other forms of subdivision are within the jurisdiction of the Approving Officer and given that the Approving Officer has an independent mandate to manage such applications and is also governed [by] other legislative and Municipal statutes and Bylaws, the above referenced policy may on occasion be contradictory to that mandate and certainly unnecessary,” the staff report said. “Although staff have long dismissed the practice, this policy was not formally rescinded.”

News PARAMOUNT, from page 1 has heard—the city plans on acquiring all the buildings from the Empress to the Stacey Block to similarly demolish in preparation for a developer. The Irwin Block at Five Corners is currently for sale with a $1.28 million price tag in the window. In making the motion to demolish the Paramount, Coun. Ken Huttema said bold steps are needed to address the section of downtown where the Paramount is located. “This is another step towards that,” Huttema said. Coun. Chuck Stam agreed and said that it was the city’s job to assemble land so that when the economy turns around, development can step in. Mayor Sharon Gaetz said that to realize the full vision of the down-

Mayor says patience is needed town requires patience, as longterm revitalization takes time. “This process calls for patience on our behalf,” Gaetz said. “One of the recommendations [of the Downtown Core Task Force] is to assemble pieces of land in the downtown and make bold moves to actually take down buildings that cannot be remediated.” Recommendation seven in the task force report is to “assemble land, demolish and remediate.” She did say that “whenever you are demolishing a building you better paint a picture of a preferable future or you have no vision in your community.” Gaetz’s vision of downtown Chilliwack includes residential units

But the message from city hall is for continued patience. “Economists tell us from seven to 30 years out in scope: it’s going to take that long to develop it and change directions,” Gaetz said in 2009. But Mallory and Butt say downtown is changing for the better now without the city doing anything. “It is revitalizing all by itself without the city getting involved,” said Mallory. “Now that we need the city with the Paramount, they have ignored us. . . .

leak of diluted bitumen. Anderson did say that his company has adhered to all regulatory requirements in Burnaby, even exceeding them after that incident. “We did what we were supposed to do, now we do more than we are supposed to,” he said. Through Chilliwack, the pipeline runs under farmers’ fields, school yards, suburban lawns, the Vedder River and Kinkora Golf Course. Karen Ireland lives on Watson Road next to Watson elementary. The pipeline runs through the school’s property. “This pipeline is in my back yard,” Ireland said to Anderson. “My issue is that this pipeline is 59 years old. I’m concerned about slow leaks, longevity, safety.” Anderson said the pipeline “is as safe today as it was 60 years ago.” He said he is trying to be open and honest about the safety of the pipeline. “I’m not interested in operating a pipeline that is not safe, I’m not interested in operating a pipeline that is at risk,” he said. West of the Watson elementary school yard, the Trans Mountain pipeline runs through the back yards of homes on Roseberry Road and Montcalm Road. When

Straight line asked by the Times if the company would prefer to twin through that same route or divert to elsewhere, Anderson said the preference is to use the existing right-of-way wherever possible. “Where staying in the existing right-of-way causes more community disruption we will look for alternative routes,” he said. “The issue we are going to face, I know, is you build a pipeline in a straight line.” He said in places they will have to cross private property and that is why “fair treatment of land owners is so important.” The company will start to contact landowners any day now regarding the twinning project. Anderson pointed to the local benefits of the proposed project, specifics of which are unclear this early in the process. “Benefits and legacy after a project are very, very local,” he said. One clear benefit is economic. Anderson said the $4.1 billion project will see 60 per cent of that spent in B.C. “The dollars that are going to be spent are real,” he said. The City of Chilliwack municipal taxes will more than double from $613,000 a year to $1.4 million.

◗ Opinion

Gun culture trumps gun control


ast week I fired a gun for the first time. The occasion was the bachelor party for an old friend of mine. (And let me pause briefly here to say that the wedding was wonderful, and that the bride and groom have a very happy future ahead of them.) Why were we shooting guns? Well, none of us drink much, no one was terribly keen on dragging the groom to a strip club, and the gun range allowed us to indulge our fantasies of blasting the brains out of zombie hordes. We may have been thinking, “Will this hit a living dead cannibal in the brains?” but other people clearly see guns in different ways. In the wake of two mass murder sprees in the United States, Americans did exactly zero soul-searching about their gun laws. In fact, many of them immediately turned to the notion that what people need is not fewer guns, but more of them! Why, if only there had been more armed civilians, surely the shooters could have been stopped! I think of this as the “magic wand” approach to gun advocacy. In this view, guns are not tools (as they are for many hunters, farmers, and police), they are devices that give people superpowers. Pick up a high-powered pistol and suddenly the holder believes himself to be Dirty Harry Potter, capable of protecting the innocent, killing the bad guys, and making the world safe for non-gun-owning muggles.


Be Our Guest Personally, I wouldn’t care if everyone in Canada or in the United States owned a gun—with the single, major caveat that I would want them to be used and stored safely. The thing is, safe use and storage is completely incompatible with the “gun as personal protection” ethos. There are two scenarios that seem to come up frequently as reasons for having a gun. The first is the intruder breaking into a home in the middle of the night. (Whether the intruder is a hapless teenaged burglar or a serial killer seems to be of no importance to the narrative.) The stalwart, armed homeowner either drives away or kills the intruder. Of course, if our gun owner is a responsible one, then his gun is A) locked in a gun safe, B) is not loaded, and C) has a trigger lock or is otherwise unable to fire. After all, he wouldn’t want the kids to get their hands on the gun, right? By the time you’ve gotten the gun, found the key for the trigger lock, and loaded the ammunition, the hypothetical hockey-masked

killer has already carted away your head for his trophy case. The other scenario is based on the notion that young women should carry guns to ward off rapists: the “dark alley” scenario. Would a few rapists get a deserved gunshot wound if all women were armed? Yes. But the majority of rapes do not happen in dark alleys or deserted parking garages, contrary to the Hollywood myth. Most rape victims know their rapist. Guns cannot stop child molestation or date rape. In addition, a gun can be taken away. Self-defense training, better security and policing, and cellphones are harder to turn on victims. My feeling is that gun control laws are not the most important element of keeping society safe. It’s gun culture. If you see guns as potentially dangerous tools, like chain saws and arc welders, you have a culture that uses them safely. If you have a culture of would-be vigilantes, no amount of gun-control laws will convince people to use them safely. I liked my trip to the firing range, but I don’t need the hassle of being a responsible gun owner, and I really don’t need to indulge my cowboy fantasies by being a bad gun owner. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the LangleyAdvance.

ummer is flying by and so are the vehicles on our roads, with a number of excessive speeding incidents taking place recently. The drivers of four Porsches were caught going up to 131 kilometres per hour in an 80-kilometre-metre zone on the Sea to Sky Highway during the B.C. Day long weekend, according to the Vancouver Sun. In Burnaby, a motorcyclist was caught by police in the underground parking lot of Metrotown at Metropolis on Aug. 9, after driving more than 150 km/h on Lougheed Highway. These are extreme examples, but many of us drive just a little bit faster during the summer. The arrival of September should be a reminder to all of us to take it slow, especially in local school zones. With kids heading back to class in the coming weeks, most school zone speed limits will once again be 30 km/hr between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. While it may be tempting to let the speedometer creep up so we can make it to work on time, this puts our most vulnerable citizens at risk of injury or death. And it isn’t just those drivers passing local schools who need to be aware and cautious of their speed—parents dropping kids off should do so, as well. Parents who make U-turns in school zones, stop in no-stopping zones, roll through stop signs, and ignore safety patrollers and signage endanger themselves and others. Drivers who ignore traffic laws around schools can be heavily penalized for doing so. The penalty for speeding in a school zone is three points on your drivers’ licence, with a fine of $196 if the driver is going between 31 and 50 km/h, jumping to $253 for travel between 51 and 70 km/h. But the financial costs are nothing compared with the guilt and horror of having inadvertently harmed or killed a child. So keep your eyes on the road and your foot off the gas in school zones this September—and we’ll all be safer for it.

◗ Your view This week’s question Do you think city council made the right decision to demolish the Paramount Theatre? VOTE NOW:




Where were the hard questions from local media?

Editor: I went past the Paramount Theatre Friday and was shocked to see it still standing there. After attending Tuesday’s city council meeting I figure there must be a secret pot of gold buried under that site. Apparently the building must come down immediately so we can pay for more roads and sewers and underwater bmx parks. At the meeting, council showed just how unprepared it is for the serious task at hand of preserving our downtown core. Councillors Attril, Popove, MacLean and especially Stam should not have the keys to this vehicle. They didn’t do their homework on the Paramount and certainly don’t deserve to be behind the wheel as we continue to pass on the blind curve that is this latest incarnation of downtown revitalization. Unfortunatly, you just don’t get that our historic Five Corners area is a valuable key to this city’s future, not simply something out of our past. Tear it all down and start from scratch and you are taking a much greater risk than you realize. Mayor Sharon Gaetz revealed that the city has arbitrarily moved beyond our love of history and has a “bold new vision” for the city centre. Then Coun. Huttema let the cat out of the bag with a riveting announcement: that planter boxes containing vegetables are the historic site’s bold new immediate future. How exciting! This should not come as a surprise to anyone. We all live in hope that a group of elected individuals will guide this city with a flare and vision not seen here since the days of the paddle wheel on the Fraser. Unfortunately, this council and mayor, like so many before it, are bound and determined to have us homogenized into Surrey and Abbotsford-like contortions. Vinyl boxes, chain stores, steel and glass spread across the land like a garbage dump with no real centre or focus on who we are and why anyone should look to move their family or business here beyond the fact that it’s a cheap place to live near Vancouver. The decision to demolish this building at this moment makes no sense. And it is most disappointing that the city played out all its dirty tricks so overtly in making sure the cards were completely stacked in its favour. The BS announcement last week giving us all false hope right up until the meeting was well played, but you should be ashamed of such tactics and will certainly pay at the next election if anyone is paying attention. If you had to resort to telling mistruths in this case, what else are you doing? Equally disheartening is the lack of backbone our local newsletters have shown on this issue. Our once vaunted “award-winning” newspapers are now staffed with stenographers who can only parrot what council says. After reading both accounts I had trouble keeping my lunch down. Word for bloody word. No thought of asking any of the difficult questions? To begin, why is the city in such a hell-fire hurry to bring the building down when there’s myriad empty lots on every block in the

And despite what Mayor Gaetz says, the economy is not going to turn around any time soon. Why such a desire to have another empty-lot eyesore there for the next decade? Why in the beginning of this process were no questions asked about the city’s claims that the building was “unsafe,” “unstable,” and “at risk, when the truth is clear that this building is built in such a way that it will be standing when everything else for kilometres around has fallen down? Why wouldn’t someone corner the mayor on her “bold new vision” statements? There obviously is a plan. Why no consultation with the community about the direction the city is taking? John Janzen and CEPCO are offering to demolish the building for “free.” Doesn’t that raise some journalistic alarm bells and at least warrant a question? Free? Really? It’s unfortunate that Mr. Janzen’s history in the downtown is so rife with failure. The Epcon Centre should be the building he brings down for free, not the Paramount. And finally—and most important—why did you allow the Mayor to get away with painting this issue as one hinging on taxpayers’ dollars? At no time did anyone in favour of saving the building suggest that taxpayers pay any cost. We citizens already own the building. It does not take a gaggle of City of Chilliwack engineers to come up with a workable plan to save this building. With less than $10,000 of our own money we citizens could put a tar roof up in a weekend and this historic cornerstone would stand proudly for a long time to come. Like many others I am ashamed at the lack of leadership and vision our mayor and council have shown on this and many other issues. The last mayor and council left an expensive, unmanageable legacy in its wake. I can’t wait to see and pay for your next “bold” vision to come to fruition. Cucumbers anyone? R. Collins Chilliwack

Sports viewing option for theatre Editor: So city hall has run out of ideas for the Paramount. How about the Paramount Sports Cinema? Canucks, Lions Whitecaps are all a pricey trip to see a game in Vancouver. Sure you can watch them at home but watching them on a theatre

screen with full audio if the cost was reasonable would be great. The city would simply have to partner with Shaw, Bell or TELUS for content. Add away games for Chilliwack Chiefs and Abbotsford Heat plus baseball, golf, tennis as well as mixed martial arts and NASCAR, etc. and it would be a winning combination Keep the price reasonable, like $5 with the option for monthly or a yearly pass. Remember too, the province now allows liquor licences for movie theatres. Gerry Gillis Chilliwack

Short-sighted view of our downtown Editor: How sad for Chilliwack that the Paramount Theatre is doomed to destruction. With so little left of character in towns and cities these days with the development of big chain box stores and the like, I count it a loss every time we decide to replace rather than to renew the unique and attractive features of our town. Indeed, I think it is short sighted to believe that it is a poor investment to renew our downtown core. Gastown in Vancouver, Fairhaven in Bellingham attract people because of the historical and “people-sized” establishments that welcome the visitor more than any box store might. My understanding is that to save the Paramount would cost not much more than to demolish it. I suppose I am a day late and a dollar short to recommend a change of heart and mind about the Paramount Theatre. Nevertheless, I think it would make good sense to do so. Ross Vaartnou Chilliwack P.S. Kudos to Jason Lum for voting to keep the Paramount.

Decision made us look like bumpkins Editor: I moved to this wonderful city five years ago from Surrey. It’s just too bad that our mayor and council are such country bumpkins. You had an opportunity to do something special for the downtown area with the Paramount Theater but you chose not to. Instead, you take the easy way out and decide to demolish the building. I was just wondering what the

overall plan is for downtown Chilliwack? Why would anyone really want to go down there? If not for Grahams Gifts I really don”t see any other reason. All you see is run-down buildings and empty store fronts. For a city this size do you not think it’s time to get in the 21st Century and perhaps see what others have done with their downtown areas? Maybe it’s time to wakeup and progress. Norm Paisley Chilliwack

Size of government should be shrunk Editor: In recent weeks there have been letters criticizing Mark Stahl for not opposing the civilian job losses at the ASU. While I agree—as should every other voter—with the criticism of Mark Strahl and his father manipulating the candidacy, it might be too much to expect him to oppose party policy. After all, he is a remote back-bencher and as such, is expected to toe the line. However, cutting the government bureaucracy is an attempt by the Conservatives to try to reverse what the party itself has taken a number of years to create. As an example, about two years ago Mr. Harper increased the size of his cabinet by seven members. The bureaucratic entourage of each of those cabinet positions is considerable and dwarfs that of an ordinary MP. Comparatively, the U.S. cabinet, which represents 10 times the population of our country, has 12 members. We now have 37. There are valid accusations that the PM has increased government size as much as 50 per cent since first taking office—which might be unfair by a small fraction because he did bring the Senate up to full membership—and we all know that we need our Senate at full strength. That said, the PM felt there weren’t enough Conservative-sympathizing members occupying Senate seats. In the final scheme of things, the losses of government jobs at ASU was a very minor ripple of the PM’s overall announced cut-back—but what needed to be done. Unfortunately, our total government size is still well over the amount it was when he first assumed office and well over the amount it should be, considering our population. Mr. Harper promised to balance the federal annual budget by the year 2016/17, but given the present size of government which will significantly expand in the next election because of the anticipated MP increase, it may even be questionable whether it can be balanced within this decade. Meanwhile our government debt continues to stand at more than $600 billion, which, because of interest charges alone, is steadily rising at a rate in excess of $1,000 per second.

Pipeline dream will be a nightmare

Editor: Re: Pipeline opponents vs. Kinder Morgan and Enbridge. Can you recall the now famous photo of an oil worker wading in the Kalamazoo River up to his armpits in chest waders? The photo has this guy out in the middle of the river covered in oil, adjusting an oil boom. Now picture this guy in the middle of the Vedder River or in the Fraser River playing with an oil boom. One step into the Fraser or three steps into the Vedder and this unfortunate dude will be on the 6 o’clock news as B.C.’s latest drowning victim. These oil companies are not equipped for fast-moving, highvolume mountain rivers and sorely have no technology to handle the cleanup of any B.C. river. I learned the Kinder Morgan pipeline is tucked into the slope of a known, slide-prone mountain from Hope to Agassiz, a Kalamazoo-sized spill would be carried directly into the Fraser River. No need for the TV reporters to drive way out here as within two hours the slick will be all the way to the Steveston docks and spewing into Georgia Strait at the airport. Within two days the spill will be throughout the river and 200year-old sturgeon, seagulls, eagles and the salmon all dead and floating on the surface. We are going to be on CNN’s breaking news for months. Go ahead with the pipelines and the Feds will be swimming in dollars, Harper could manipulate an additional 100 MLAs, appoint another 50 Senators, Dom Perignon and orange juice for all. Here in B.C., Premier Clark will double the executive staff running B.C., double everyone’s party faithful pay and pensions. Problem is, about the time us baby boomers are dying off so will oil and natural gas reserves and the money. With nothing left, who will up the tab for all the pigs still at the feeding trough? What then? THUNK! That’s the sound of our First Nation’s people landing a lawsuit on government heads. B.C.’s best bet to stop this scenario is with our native bands; hopefully they will join together and unilaterally say “No” to the destruction of B.C.’s environment. I, for one, will stand with them in any way I can. OUCH! That’s us taxpayers getting it in the derriere again, gasoline, natural gas and electricity (used to liquefy natural gas) will hit record high costs as supply and demand for these commodities are gobbled up by China. Simply put, you and I are left subsidizing Canadian resources shipped out of this country. Bernie Lupichuk Chilliwack

Back to School

New super brings prairie spirit Evelyn Novak looks forward to a fresh start following a challenging school year



he Chilliwack school district is just one week away from a new school year with no mistakes in it yet, and new superintendent Evelyn Novak is brimming with enthusiasm. “New beginnings are wonderful,” she told theTimes last week. “We’ve got a fairly new team on our executive as well, so I think we’re all keen and enthusiastic about wanting to do a good job for our students.” Novak was appointed in June to replace interim superintendent Michael Audet, and the Saskatchewan import took the helm Aug. 15. She leaves behind a 30-year education career in what is now the Prairie Spirit School Division, a doughnut-shaped district that surrounds Saskatoon but doesn’t include it. She had served as that district’s superintendent (or “director” in Saskatchewan) for more than six years before accepting the top job in Chilliwack. A North Battleford native, Novak began her career as a phys-ed and music teacher at a kindergarten-toGrade 8 school in the Saskatchewan Valley school division, one of the small districts later amalgamated to form Prairie Spirit. She eventually moved on to a newly formed middle-years school, where a principal encouraged her to pursue school administration work. “I was shoulder tapped,” she said,

6,000 students. A bigger challenge came in 2006 when the Saskatchewan government redrew the province’s education map, including the amalgamation of the three divisions around Saskatoon. Novak landed the job as the new division’s director and was tasked with bringing the three jurisdictions—which included three separated teacher union locals, two support staff locals and a group of non-union support staff—together as one. “Her job was immense—to build one cohesive, effective school division following the merger of three divisions,” reads a 2011 Saskatoon YWCA Women of Distinction Award nomination. “Novak rose to the challenge and excelled due to her collaborative nature and empowerment of others.” Pulling up roots in the “land of

the living sky” and relocating to the Fraser Valley—land of endless winter rain—has been a summer-long task, said School District No. 33’s new superintendent, but coming west and leaving her home province’s harsh weather behind had been a life plan for her and her husband. “Now I can shovel rain as opposed to shoveling snow,” she said. Novak is happy to be starting in the district at the beginning of a year-long collective-bargaining truce negotiated between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the provincial government in June. “I heard that last year was a challenging year,” she said, referring to the provincewide labour dispute that culminated in a three-day teacher walkout in March. “. . . I’ve heard about the impact on our staff and schools, and so I feel quite fortunate that I’m coming into a year where people just need a time to be, a time to garner hope again about the future and garner enthusiasm and energy.” From what she’s seen so far, Novak said the best thing School District No. 33 has going for it is its people, but she said she would “wait and see” before making up her mind about what the biggest challenge facing the district is. “I want to take the time to listen, to understand,” she said. Outgoing superintendent Audet has been on hand at the school board office through August to help Novak settle in. After that, she said, her main task will be tapping into the district’s most valuable resource. “My work for this year is going to be connecting with people, building relationships,” she said.

Back to School

Who’s Who at District No. #33

Ways to save on buying school clothes




he back-to-school season can be bittersweet. Parents may miss having their youngsters around the house when summer officially ends, but it’s also fun for parents to watch kids partake in all that school has to offer. One of the things few parents look forward to come the end of summer vacation is backto-school shopping. Such shopping can be costly, especially when it’s time to outfit kids with new wardrobes. While a complete wardrobe overhaul might not be necessary, kids typically need to replace a few items they’ve outgrown since the start of summer break. ◗ Get a head start. Parents can save themselves some money by shopping early for their children’s back-to-school wardrobes. Though kids may experience a growth spurt during the summer, shop for items, like socks, that they aren’t likely to grow out of before the back-toschool season begins. ◗ Establish a budget. Without a budget, it’s easy for parents to overspend on back-toschool clothing, especially for those parents who wait until the last minute and simply buy the first things they see. Establish a budget, ideally several weeks before your child’s first day of school. Having a budget in place reduces the likelihood that you will overspend, and developing the budget early helps you spread out your spending. ◗ Shop at consignment stores. Consignment stores offer name-brand clothing at discounted prices, something parents of ever-growing youngsters can appreciate. Kids will like the name-brand gear, while moms and dads will

Parents can visit department store Web sites to find great deals on back-to-school clothing for their kids. enjoy not having to pay name-brand prices. A consignment store with significant inventory might sell anything from blue jeans and Tshirts to sneakers, shoes and jackets. ◗ Swap clothes with other families. Clothing swaps between families have grown increasingly popular as more and more parents look to save money on rising clothing costs for their kids. Typically, families will swap clothes, including jackets, if their kids are similar in age and one youngster has outgrown his or her clothes. If you can’t find a family to swap with, visit your local community center or church to see if it has a clothing swap program. ◗ Shop discount stores. If the local consignment store has already been raided, consider a discount store. These stores typically sell items at heavily discounted prices and often have similar inventories to mall department stores. ◗ Shop online. A relatively new way for parents to save on back-to-school clothing is to shop online. A popular store’s website might offer discounts that their brick-and-mortar store does not.

n just one week, parents all over Chilliwack will be hustling their kids off to the first day of school. During the year, most of them will only interact with a handful of School District No. 33 officials, but the Chilliwack school district is a pretty big outfit with a lot of people involved in deciding what goes on in the classroom. Here’s a quick look at the big picture for this year. The Chilliwack school district, a.k.a. School District No. 33, is a growing district—one of the few in the province. More than 14,000 students attend its 32 schools in Chilliwack, Sardis, Yarrow, Cultus Lake, Vedder, Rosedale and Greendale. There are 20 elementary schools (kindergarten to Grade 6), five middle schools (Grades 7 to 9), two secondary schools (Grades 10 to 12) and one middle-secondary school (grades 7 to 12) as well as three alternate schools and one distance learning school. Working at those schools are about 1,800 teachers and support staff. The people ultimately responsible for what goes on in the district are the seven trustees on the Chilliwack Board of Education who were elected last November: Louise Piper (currently board chair), Walter Krahn (currently vice-chair), Doug McKay, Silvia Dick, Heather Maahs, Barry Neufeld, Louise Piper and Martha Wiens. Trustees are elected every three years, with the next election not due again until November 2014. Some trustees are educators, but they don’t have to be. They hire an education expert, the superintendent, to manage the district for them.

Evelyn Novak is brand new to the post this year. Coming from the Prairie Spirit school division near Saskatoon, she took over from interim superintendent Michael Audet on Aug. 15. The other big player on that team is the district’s chief financial officer, the secretarytreasurer. For Chilliwack, that person is Maureen Carradice, the district’s former director of human resources, who stepped into the secretary-treasurer in February 2011. As Chilliwack’s biggest employer, the school district employs workers from two major unions: the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association (a local of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) local 411, which represents school support staff like teaching assistants and custodians. The president of the local teachers’ union is also a new face: Central elementary teacher Clint Johnston, who took the helm at the CTA office in July. He was elected to replace longtime local teacher Katharin Midzain, who opted to return to the classroom this year after four years in the CTA office. School custodian Rod Isaac is the local CUPE president. For parents, the most important regular at public school board meetings, which happen once or twice a month at the school district office, is the president of the District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC), which represents all the school PACs in the district. Gord Byers, a Chilliwack middle school and Strathcona elementary school parent, is Chilliwack’s current DPAC president. To get a glimpse of how these people all work together, drop by a regular public school board meeting. The first one is scheduled for Sept. 11 starting at 7 p.m. at the school district office at 8430 Cessna Drive. ◗ For those who like to get their information

Today’s kids are busier than ever before. Commitments in the classroom coupled with a full slate of extracurricular activities have ensured that many of today’s school-aged children don’t have a minute to spare. While it’s important for kids to embrace extracurricular activities, parents know it’s not always easy helping kids find the right activity that allows them to grow outside the classroom while still focusing on their responsibilities inside it. In addition, kids’ interests tend to change at the drop of a hat, so something they want to do today might bore them come tomorrow. To help kids choose and manage their extracurricular activities, consider the following tips. • • • •

Emphasize that schoolwork must come first. Go over coursework at the start of the school year Get a grasp of the commitment required of a given activity Don’t overlook the social benefits of extracurricular activities • Don’t forget the fun factor

After-care options for dual-income families


n a perfect world, school and work hours would run concurrently. But the average school day begins at 9 a.m. and continues until 3 p.m., while the average work day lasts from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. As a result, parents must arrange for child care during those hours when school is out, but mom and dad are still at work. The two-income family is more common than ever before. Up until the 20th century, a dual-income family was rare. Today, however, roughly 80 per cent of families in North America have both parents working, and many find it is impossible to live on one income. Dual-income families often have to make difficult choices about child care.

with a teacher, coach or club administrator until their parents are home from work. When the decision is made, there are some questions parents should ask before enrolment.

◗ Are caregivers teachers or volunteers? ◗ Are background checks conducted? ◗ Is financial assistance available? ◗ What is the turn-over rate

Savour that sweet FREE laptop smell.

School-based care Many schools offer programs both before and after school, many of which are reasonably priced. This helps dual-income families, but may not be practical during early-release days, during teacher planning days or holiday breaks. Programs that help parents before school typically allow working parents to drop off their children before the parents head to work. The students are kept in the school’s gym or cafeteria until the regular school day begins. The same scenario applies to afterschool programs. At dismissal, after-care students will return to the designated location to work on homework or engage in some activities with other after-care participants until their parents arrive to take them home. Family and friends Parents who prefer a different situation than schoolbased care frequently turn to friends or family members to bridge the gap between school and work. Students who carpool may be dropped off early at the driver’s home and stay there after school until their parents get home. In addition, many families have welcomed older relatives back into their homes in light of the struggling economy. In such instances, grandparents or aunts and uncles can look after the kids once school has ended for the day. After-school programs Some children are enrolled in care centers that watch children before school, bus them to school and then return in the afternoon to pick up the children again. This is one of the more costly options in child care. However, it may be more educationally structured than the care programs provided at school. Students who participate in sports or academic clubs may have an arrangement to stay

Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year It is my privilege to say hello to all parents, students, partners and Chilliwack School District learning community members.

Summer vacation is nearly over. The Chilliwack Board of Education is excited about the arrival of its new Superintendent, Evelyn Novak, and looks forward to her leadership as she guides the district through the four pillars of our Strategic Plan - Engaging All Learners, Successful Transitions, Technology Integration and Effective Communication. The Board believes that student literacy, academic achievement and social development are fundamental to everything we do! As school opening approaches, it is time to re-focus on teaching and learning. We have an outstanding team of administrators in our schools who provide leadership to professional and competent teaching and support staff. A strength of the Chilliwack School District is the positive working relationships we have with staff, parents, businesses and community groups. The collaboration with our partners provides a dimension that is critical for a successful public education system. We hope that the warm summer days have provided rest and relaxation time for our staff and families. The Board anticipates an exciting year full of opportunities and success. Let’s make it a great year!

Here we are in August and school will soon begin. On September 4th we will begin the new school year with over 13,000 students. The start of each school year is exciting because of the energy our students, staff, parents and community members bring to it - and all the possibilities that working together provides. The continued building of our partnerships and engagement of our Districts’s families and our community stakeholders is vital to our students having the best possible environment for learning.

In the short time I have been here I am reminded that our people are our strength and that we have a highly qualified and dedicated staff and Board serving our student population. We are very thankful to everyone who has worked diligently to prepare us for this new school year, including our custodial, maintenance and technology staffs, as well as our district office and many school-based staff members. We are here to serve our students and I look forward to our work as “Partners in Learning” during the 2012-2013 school year. With enthusiasm and excitement I anticipate a great school year with our students learning, achieving and growing!

Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights Stop when approaching a school bus from either direction (Min. 10 metres). This means the school bus is stopped to either load or unload students. Wait until the red lights stop flashing and the driver indicates it is safe to proceed or until the bus moves off. Watch for students crossing the road. Amber Overhead Flashing Warning Lights Slow down and proceed with caution and be prepared to stop as the bus will be stopping to either load or unload students. Railroad Crossings The Motor Vehicle Act states that school buses carrying students must stop at all uncontrolled railway crossings, but Chilliwack School District has extended its policy to include stops at ALL railway crossings. -- Buses will display 4-way flashing amber lights to indicate the bus is stopping or stopped. -- Extra caution is required on the part of the motorists while the bus is stopped or stopping. Passing is permitted.

Living in our community means sharing the roadways with school buses. Let’s work together to ensure another safe year for our bus students.

Curb Stops on 3 and 4 Lane Roads It is almost impossible to stop 3 or 4 lanes of traffic with Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights. For student safety, the school district employs Curb Stops similar to the City Transit Bus Service. Whenever possible, the bus proceeds through the intersection, students disembark, then cross the street at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk behind the bus. -- The school bus will display the 4-way Amber Flashing Lights, the same as at railway crossings. -- Extra caution is required by motorists to watch for students crossing the road at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk. Passing is permitted, but please use extreme caution. 8430 Cessna Drive Chilliwack, BC V2P 7K4 Phone: (604) 792.1321

Grade 9 quarterback Jordon Breuker scrambles during a defensive scrimmage at the G.W. Graham Grizzlies training camp Thursday.

Grizzlies start off ranked third



efore even stepping onto the field for their first game of the season, the G.W. Graham Grizzlies junior varsity football team is already ranked third in BC High School Football’s pre-season Eastern Conference rankings. The news came as a pleasant surprise to head coach Laurie Smith. “It’s hard to determine on what basis they rank us that high,” he said, “but I guess we will take it as a compliment.” The ranking shouldn’t come as a complete surprise, though. The Grizzlies, Chilliwack’s first high school football team since the

Sardis Falcons folded in the early 1980s, were undefeated in spring and summer exhibition play, beating the Langley Saints and Abbotsford Collegiate Panthers and tying Seattle’s East Lake Wolves. And the new program has attracted so much interest, the school has decided to add a Grade 8 team. Both the Grade 8 and the JV squads hit the GWG field for fall training camp last week. “We are excited about our team and our prospects in this first season” said Smith. “We are looking to be competitive from day one and we are very pleased with the buyin from our players and coaching staff.” The buzz around the field Thurs-

The 55-player JV (Grade 9 and 10) squad then opens its preseason with a game this Saturday at 6 p.m. in Colton, Oregon. Leading the Grizzlies offence will be quarterback Kirkland Kennedy and running back Ryan Connelly— both veterans of Chilliwack minor football. On defence the Graham will be led by linebacker Cyrus Tommy, safety Tristan Davis and rookie corner Austin Creasy. The Grizzlies regular season home opener kicks off against Abbotsford’s Robert Bateman Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. at Exhibition Stadium.

Smyl feels Halpenny ready to move up BY TYLER OLSEN


Chilliwack Chief Garrett Foster brings the puck up ice during exhibition play against Coquitlam on Saturday.

Ken Goudswaard/TIMES

t appears a local product has won the chance to be the Chilliwack Chiefs’ new back-up goaltender. After a week of training camp and their first preseason game, the Chiefs now have just two netminders in camp: returning starter Mitch Gillam and 17-yearold Josh Halpenny, who played last year for the Fraser Valley Bruins in the B.C. Major Midget League. Halpenny practised regularly with the Chiefs last year and turned aside all 12 shots he faced Thursday in the Crimson-Gold intrasquad game. Smyl is optimistic that the Chilliwack-born puckstopper is ready to make the step up to junior hockey this year. “He’s a good, confident goalie,” Smyl told the Times. “He’s technically sound and . . . . he’s got a lot of good habits.” Still, with three preseason games remaining and some time left until the first meaningful games, Smyl said nothing is set in stone. “We’re still really early in it.”

Chilliwack Coquitlam

2 2

Indeed, some of the hardest decisions are still to come. Of the 80 players who started training camp a week ago, just 25 remain. BCHL teams are allowed to carry 22 players on their rosters. Currently, 15 forwards and eight defencemen are left to battle for those remaining spots. They include 10 returnees from last year. So with just over a week left until the first BCHL Showcase event hits the ice at Prospera Centre, the Chiefs brass must cut loose three more players. Smyl wasn’t satisfied with his team’s effort in their first preseason game Saturday night, a 2-2 tie against the Coquitlam Express. “I didn’t think we had the necessary drive to play,” Smyl said Monday. “I think we missed something that should be here at this time of year.” With jobs still on the line, he’ll be looking for more over the next week.

Add scoring touch CHIEFS, from page 24 “We’ve got a great week coming up,” he said. “We’re going to get some questions answered in the seven days.” Chiefs pick up Donohoe The Chiefs acquired 20y e a r- o l d f o r w a rd Ry a n Donohoe last week from the Lindsay Muskies of the Ontario Junior Hockey League in exchange for future considerations. Donohoe put up solid numbers in the OJHL, notching 51 goals and 106 points over the

last three seasons. Smyl said Donohoe seemed nervous when he arrived in Chilliwack. “This can be a demanding place to play,” he said. But he said Donohoe has since settled in. He said he was pleased to see Donohoe open the scoring Saturday in his first game in a Chiefs jersey. Donohoe stripped the puck from an Express defender, skated in alone on Coquitlam goalie Pierce Dorshenko and stuffed the puck into the net. “The positioning in order to

Tuesday night in Coquitlam, they head to Hope to play the Merritt Centennials Wednesday night. The Chiefs round out their preseason schedule by visiting the Surrey Eagles Friday night.

Jock scraps Boat Festival was the destination for the wRECking Crew, Thunderstrokers and Crusaders. The wRECking Crew and Thunderstrokers made it to the Diamond Division and posted times of 2:08 and 2:11, respectively, to finish in 16th and 18th overall out of 58 mixed teams.

Westshore Rebel Greg Morris gets tackled by Chilliwack Huskers Tyson Plain during their B.C. Football Conference game.

Huskers blanked BY TYLER OLSEN


e s t s h o re Re b e l s running back Greg Morris racked up 264 rushing yards on just 13 carries as he led his squad to a 58-0 victory over the Chilliwack Huskers Sunday. Morris tallied four touchdowns, and quarterback Mark Black threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns for the Rebels, who posted 608 yards of total offence. Tyson Plain and Dan Coffin led the Huskers’ defence with four tackles each. Plain also notched an interception, while Brandon Vickers recovered a fumble. James Williams and Shawn Sadler each had quarterback sacks for the visitors. Chilliwack’s anemic offence didn’t give the team’s defence

much time to rest throughout the game. Chilliwack quarterback Braden Churley completed just three of 11 passes, for a total of 16 yards, while scrambling for 25 yards rushing. Other ball carriers were able to run for only 18 yards on nine carries as the Huskers managed just five first downs. Jamal Hamilton led the way with 15 yards on four carries. The loss was the Huskers’ fourth in as many British Columbia Football Conference games this year, while the Rebels are now 3-1 on the year (with two of those victories coming against Chilliwack). The league will take a break for the Labour Day long weekend. The Huskers are back in action Sept. 8, when they’ll take on the 3-0-1 Vancouver Island Raiders in Nanaimo.

Beulah Margaret Reid

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Mom, Grandma, Oma, Nana and Aunty “B”, on Friday, August 24th, 2012. She passed away at Valleyhaven Care Home, surrounded by her family. Beulah was born on June 24, 1922, in Cadomin, Alberta. She is survived by her children: Adrienne (Garth) Campbell, Marion (Mike) Price, Denys (Karen) Beynon and Darlene (Jeff) Spooner; her 13 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind her sister, Mora McLeod, countless nieces and nephews, and many friends. She is predeceased by her first husband, Phillip Beynon, her second husband, Maynard Reid, and her grandson, Donald Price. Mom shared many fond memories of growing up in the coal branch; spending her days riding horses, taking camping trips on horseback with her Dad, and hopping the train to attend dances in nearby Mercoal. She moved to Vancouver in 1943, where she found employment as a riveter and then a waitress. She moved her young family to Ryder Lake in the mid 1950’s, and started working at the Vedder Post Office. She ended her career, after 24 years, at the Main post office in downtown Chilliwack. Upon retirement she joined FSNA and served as President for a number of years. She was also instrumental in starting up the local Senior Resources Society, and in helping other seniors prepare their tax returns. Mom enjoyed spending her free time knitting, baking, canning, swimming and camping. She also enjoyed square dancing (where she met Maynard) and spent many years traveling around to various square dance jamborees. Mom valued her family, and the friends she made during her 90 year journey, and felt the loss of every one very deeply. We know that she is now free of pain and enjoying many happy reunions with those who went before her. There will be a Memorial Service held on Thursday, August 30th, at 2 pm,from the Chapel at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 45901 Victoria Ave, Chilliwack,604-792-1344. Honorary Pallbearers are: Leonard Larson, Bryan Larson, Rick Edgington, Phil Beynon, Colin Beynon, Tyler Owens, Nicholas Owens and Ryan Spooner. There will be a reception to follow at the home of her daughter, Darlene Spooner. If friends so desire donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of BC; c/o J. Armit, 9291 Corbould St., Chilliwack, BC, V2P 4A6. Please visit to leave a message of condolence for the family.
