Libs already in campaign mode

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Opposition parties simply want byelection called

esidents in the provincial riding of Chilliwack-Hope who haven’t been paying close attention will be forgiven for thinking a byelection has already been called. Premier Christy Clark has made a number of visits to the arear, touring with candidate Laurie Throness, who even has a few election signs erected at Prest and Chilliwack Central roads.

The Liberals have been running print and online ads that focus on Throness’s credentials in local newspapers. Members of the BC Young Liberals have a canvassing blitz for the riding planned for this Saturday. But 60 days after constituents in Chilliwack-Hope were left without a representative in Victoria, Clark still hasn’t called a byelection, something that bothers opposition

R

parties. “People want to know what is going on,” said NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony Wednesday. “They can see it looks like a full-out election but there is no date set. “Certainly drawing it out like this is not doing [the Premier] any good. I don’t think it’s improving Christy Clark’s image at all; that’s what is very perplexing.” Conservative candidate John

Martin said he would like to see a system that fixes byelection dates automatically. “It would be nice if it was just given to Elections BC,” he said. “Maybe 30 days after the seat is vacant, that would put an end to the manipulation that all governments have been guilty of.” The Premier was in Chilliwack on Monday, first cancelling a stop at city hall, then changing the venue

for a visit with independent school administrators, a move that enraged the B.C. Teachers Federation. Martin, too, was not impressed. “I can’t think of a more crass decision in the name of electioneering in light of this upcoming byelection,” Martin said in a press release. “The Christy Clark Liberals are trying to use the education system for their own political gain, at the expense of parents, teachers and students.” See BYELECTION, Page 5

hilliwack teachers were back in the classroom Thursday after walking off the job Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during the provincewide teacher strike, but that doesn’t mean it was business as usual at local schools. Teachers are continuing phase one of their job action, which means they are still not preparing report cards, communicating formally with administrators or supervising students during breaks. “We’re back to where we were last week,” said superintendent Michael Audet. For the rest of the week teachers will also work only from bell to bell and not participate in extracurricular activities, according to Chiliwack Teachers’ Association See TEACHERS, Page 11

School District No. 33 driver trainer Sharron Winter watches one of Chilliwack’s 50 schoolbus drivers maneuver through a set of pylons during training at Heritage Park Wednesday.

Strike leaves time for training BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

nyone driving past Heritage Park Wednesday could have been forgiven for thinking some really bad bus drivers were having trouble getting out of the parking lot that day. Three big yellow buses spent hours stopping, backing up, turning, driving in circles and not getting anywhere. On closer inspection, though, they would have learned (like this Times reporter did) that those operators are some of the best-trained school bus drivers in the province. They were at Heritage Park honing their skills Wednesday because the teacher walkout left them without kids to drive around for three days. “Everybody loves it,” said driver trainer Tom Adrain of the extra training. “It’s better than sitting around and doing nothing.” School District No. 33’s 50-or-so bus drivers are CUPE employees. Under an unusual agreement between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and B.C. CUPE that got teachers into a full-scale strike position faster by avoiding extra Labour Relations Board hearings, teachers asked CUPE members to keep working during the walkout. That means bus drivers, education assistants, custodians and maintenance staff were all on the job for regular work hours Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Dedicated school bus drivers earn reputation as some of B.C.’s best

hilliwack city council decided Tuesday to defer a decision to demolish the Paramount Theatre. Council was voting on a staff recommendation to accept an offer from the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) to demolish the Paramount at no cost to the city. In a letter to city hall on Feb. 21, CEPCO president John Jansen outlined plans to demolish the Ewert Building at 46177 Yale Rd., the property directly west of the Paramount. Jansen said that demolition would cause “severe damage” to the Paramount, so he offered to take down the cinema at no cost to the city. A large group opposed to the demolition of the Paramount attended the council meeting, and two members of the Save the Paramount Theatre working group were given 10 minutes to address council. Jim Balakshin and Sam Waddington pointed to the city’s own official community plan as a document with numerous references to the retention of heritage buildings, particularly downtown. The two also brought in Andrew Ward, an expert on heritage architecture from Australia who spoke of the importance of building. “What is emerging in the picture is that the Paramount Theatre with its sign has a place in the heart of the people of Chilliwack,” Ward told council. “As such it should be regarded as an iconic See PARAMOUNT, Page 7

Mayor Sharon Gaetz draws winning ballots Tuesday for the Citywide Literacy Challenge with the help of Glenda Hemminger of Chilliwack Childcare Resource and Referral.

Reader numbers tripled BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

D

ebbie Denault beamed on Tuesday as she recounted the huge response to the 2012 Citywide Literacy Challenge. The Chilliwack Learning Community Society reading challenge had 1,517 participants this year, a massive increase over the 450 who took part in the last challenge in 2010. “I would like to think we are developing a culture around lifelong learning in Chilliwack,” Denault said, when asked why she thought the numbers increased so much. But also important in the growth of the reading challenge was the promotion by the Times, StarFM, the Chilliwack Chiefs, through Facebook and with help from the various organiza-

Work

tions and businesses that had ballot boxes. Mayor Sharon Gaetz drew the names of winners of 28 donated prizes for the seven age group categories before Tuesday’s meeting of council. “All of us know that the major building block to success in life is to be literate,” Gaetz said. The Citywide Literacy Challenge challenges participants to read for 20 minutes a day for 21 days. In her presentation to council, Denault said they heard from parents reading to little ones, avid readers reading more than normal, proud parents recalling how hard children worked to read each day, and even a boy who read in Braille. ◗ For more on the challenge visit www.chilliwacklearning.com.

‘Hot spot’ for vehicle crime

W

hile Chilliwack Chiefs fans are cheering on their team inside Prospera Centre, RCMP Auxiliaries will be patrolling outside the arena to stamp out a recent spate of vehicle crimes in the area. Mounties say the area around the arena has been identified as a “hot spot” over recent months due to vehicle crimes. This weekend, the Chiefs host the Westside Warriors Saturday evening at 7 p.m. and the Trail Smoke Eaters Sunday at 5 p.m. ICBC and the SAFER City group will be promoting March as Auto Theft Awareness Month and providing information on how drivers can deter criminals from targeting their vehicles. BYELECTION, from page 1 Clark was also in Hope on Monday with Throness, touring Nestle’s bottling facility and a seniors’ home. The Premier has until early April to call a byelection in Port Moody-Coquitlam, but she could wait until July to call one for Chilliwack-Hope. O’Mahony said even if Clark opted to call the byelections separately, she’ll be ready. “I’ve been keeping this energy up since probably about 2009,” O’Mahony said. “I can go as long as she needs. My concern is the people who need representation in our area.” As to Martin’s idea of putting fixed dates on byelections, O’Mahony doesn’t think it’s such a good idea because that would mean two separate campaigns would have had to be called for Port Moody-Coquitlam and Chilliwack-Hope.

Meanwhile, auxiliaries will be completing safe vehicle checks on cars parked in the area and leaving information for drivers. The RCMP will also station a bait van on site. “We have recognized and identified the area around Prospera Centre as a target for property related crimes and are taking action to ensure we are staying connected to our community and their concerns regarding these types of crimes in this area,” said RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. “We would like to remind people to always lock their vehicle and never leave valuable items or garage door openers in their vehicles. This alone will help deter thieves, as thefts from vehicles are primarily crimes of opportunity.”

building in the downtown.” While all members of council including Mayor Sharon Gaetz have recognized the heritage aspects of the building, the city issued a request for proposals that closed on Dec. 7, 2011, and received two responses, neither of which had a suitable business plan. Balakshin contacted CEPCO to get information on supposed contamination under the Ewert building that Jansen told city hall could extend underneath the Paramount as well. CEPCO would not provide him with the environmental assessment. Jansen is apparently out of town until March 12 and when contacted by the Times, no one was available from CEPCO to talk about the matter.

Surprised by emotion evoked At Tuesday’s meeting, Coun. Stewart McLean moved the staff recommendation to demolish, arguing that he hadn’t heard how the building can be saved. “The group who made a presentation earlier this afternoon has demonstrated to have an interest in it, but I haven’t really heard a plan,” McLean said. Coun. Sue Attrill seconded the motion, saying that she didn’t want to see taxpayer dollars spent on the building. But Coun. Chuck Stam questioned the need to rush the matter and made a motion to refer the item back to staff, after which a 60- to 90-day reprieve will likely be given for the Save the Paramount group to come up with a business plan.

“I think that it is a wonderful building and I think it could have a new life and buy another 20 or 30 years,” Stam said. “Do I hold out much hope? I’m not a betting man, but, no, I don’t.” Coun. Ken Huttema said he was surprised at the emotion the Paramount has evoked. “We didn’t see the same emotion when the Empress was destined for the wrecking ball,” he said, adding that he would have thought the hotel was more culturally and architecturally significant than the Paramount. Coun. Ken Popove said he felt demolition would leave a hole downtown and he supported giving the group a 90-day period to come up with a plan.

◗ Opinion

Both sides have all the answers This is what’s happening. Teachers are born as ordinary kids, just like the rest of us. They went to elementary school and secondary school, and for the most part (speaking as someone who understands, because I seriously considered a career in education when I was first picking out my first-year university courses—before I shifted into a different direction by the time I had to pick out my second-year courses) they thought very highly of their teachers, were inspired by them, wanted to grow up to be just like them. They studied for three or four or often more years in university classrooms to achieve the aspirations their teachers inspired in them through those first 12 years in elementary and secondary classrooms. They got out of university and got a job doing what they always wanted: teaching, guiding, and inspiring young minds into rewarding adulthood. What they do is important, and they know it. Through the course of each teacher’s career, hundreds, even thousands of futures are guided by the skills and knowledge and understanding that he or she brings into the classroom every school day. But . . . most teachers never spent a solid working day outside of the classrooms where they are respected, admired, revered, maybe even idolized by dozens

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest of impressionable young minds whose limited experience coupled with daily doses of superiority has them convinced that teachers are infallible. With that kind of daily feedback, teachers, like any dedicated careerist, can slip into convincing themselves—and each other—that what they do is the most important thing that anyone can do, and that they work harder at it than anyone else does, to boot. Politicians, too, are born as ordinary kids, just like the rest of us. They also go through elementary school and secondary school, and most of them go to university. Some have wanted to be politicians from when they were preteens, others get bitten by the bug at later stages in their lives. And as someone who has worked for decades at watching politicians grow, sometimes stumble and fall, sometimes get back up again, but always strive to accomplish things for the people around them, their communities, and yes, sometimes their friends . . . and maybe a little bit for themselves, I know that nearly every last one of

them gets involved in politics, at least initially, because they truly believe—deep within their very beings—that they have something positive to offer. Politicians believe they have answers to questions that people need answered. They come in with a profound belief that they can fix what’s broken, that they can make better what is not yet perfect. Almost without exception, politicians begin with humility and striving for understanding, offering solutions and guidance and inspiration towards a rewarding future for everyone. Almost without exception, their first successful election campaign makes them more humble—grateful, even, for the trust their community (whether a town, a city, a province, or a country) has placed in them. Almost without exception, their second successful campaign—reelection—builds their confidence. The first time wasn’t a fluke, after all: they really like me! But . . . with repeated re-elections, politicians can slip into convincing themselves that they have the answers—and that their answers are better than anyone else’s, and that anyone who doesn’t agree is just getting in the way. And that’s what’s happening between teachers and politicians today. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor fo the LangleyAdvance.

bout 6,000 British Columbians die from smoking-related illnesses each year. If that number doesn’t seem significant enough, it’s about one of every 100 smokers in B.C., and represents the fatal annual fallout from the about one-in-nine British Columbians who smoke. Think about those numbers for a moment: one in 100. Who wouldn’t buy a lottery ticket with those odds! Except the odds are in reverse: one in 100 is a loser. A permanent loser. Each year. Still wanna buy a ticket? Still wanna buy that pack of cigarettes? You can buy both—lottery tickets and cigarettes—at your local pharmacy, but a concerted campaign is afoot to change that. The B.C. & Yukon Heart and Stroke Foundation, the BC Lung Association, and the College of Pharmacists of B.C. aren’t concerned about the lottery tickets, but they think that pharmacies are inappropriate venues for tobacco sales. And they make a strong case for their position: the sale of tobacco in pharmacies is contrary to the health professional role that pharmacists play in society. They applaud the B.C. government’s quit-smoking initiative, which offers free therapies for smoking cessation. But they note, “Many who are trying to quit must pass through drug stores where cigarettes and other tobacco products are sold to get to the dispensary at the back of the store to pick up their cessation medication.” The consequent temptation is counterproductive—and in view of the numbers above, possibly fatal. They want legislation removing cigarettes and other tobacco products from pharmacies and stores that contain pharmacies in B.C. B.C. is one of three Canadian jurisdictions (the others are Manitoba and the Yukon) that still allow cigarettes to be sold in pharmacies. Let’s make it two.

Automobile continues to be the engine of change Editor: Re: Downtown doesn’t need to lose another tooth (Chilliwack Times, March 6). Lost amongst the rhetoric from architect Robert Powers is the one true statement: “A community that embraces within its urban fabric both elements of the past and the future is richer.” Indeed, the City of Chilliwack is doing just that. The automobile has been, is, and will continue to be the engine of change. It is both our past and future. What other instrument has been so successful at changing the downtowns of numerous small cities across North America, and in particular, ours. We should be thankful for the foresight of our civic leaders

in continually providing us with parking lots. Transit is a driverless dream, and transit in Chilliwack (thankfully the lack of) defies our link from the past and to the future. Hopefully, we can have one large parking lot from Fletcher, west to Wellington,

thereby eliminating the confusion that is known as Five Corners, making it both easier to access our future parking lots, and declaring heritage to be in conflict with Chilliwack’s future vision. John Jones Chilliwack

We’re being taxed to death

Editor: With the prices at the pumps lately, I felt like it is time to say something. $1.38 litre and climbing. So I looked online and read that for every litre we pay 32 per cent provincial tax (41.1 per cent Vancouver) and 25.5 per cent federal tax. Watch now how groceries, clothing, furniture and anything else that is delivered by trucking companies will go up because the trucking companies will impose surcharges. I also notice that since the installation of the smart meters by BC Hydro my bill has increased by $120. I spoke with some other people and they too have

noticed similar increases. One of them said his friend who works for Hydro told him that Hydro did that to make more money by charging us premium between 2 and 8 p.m., peak hours. Also, another 3.44 per cent tax increase from the City of Chilliwack. Why do we have to keep paying for irresponsible government spending. The City of Chilliwack is debt-free but I bet not too many residents of Chilliwack can say the same. I already do about 90 per cent of my shopping south of the border and will continue to do so. The taxes imposed on us at every government level have hurt the local economy and will only get worse. Eventually more and more people are going to curb their spending and head south. I don’t know

what the answers are or how to stop this cycle but wish someone could stop these crooks. G. Davison Chilliwack

Thanks for the strike support

Editor: I am a teacher. I am currently on strike to defend public education in our town and around the province. I am writing this letter to express the gratitude my colleagues and I felt for the support we received from the public. Thank you so much to each and every Chilliwack resident who nodded, waved, and honked to show their support for us, for the job we do, and for the stand we are taking. Christopher Hunt

Our True Tail I have lived in Chilliwack for a short time. My one and only pet is a Shnoodle (1/2 Schnauzer, 1/2 poodle) named Bandit. My former veterinarian has a good reputation in the community. I was a ten year customer. In October 2011, my Bandit became violently ill and lost complete control of his motor skills. I panicked, grabbed the yellow pages and called the first emergency veterinarian service hospital that caught my eye. Dr. Chahal, owner of Cheam View Veterinarian Hospital, answered my call at 3:00 am. He calmly told me what to do and if there was no improvement, he would meet me at the hospital. Bandit’s condition improved slightly, and I did not call him back that night. However, Dr. Chahal called me in the morning to ask about Bandit. I planned on bringing him in to the office and Bandit was in and out of the hospital for tests, treatments and they were kind to let me daycare him there while I was at work. He likes people and because he was immobile they

allowed him to stay on his bed in the office. Dr. Chahal allowed me to visit once past business closing hours of 8:00 pm. He waited for me to arrive at 9:15 pm. He is an extraordinarily compassionate man. Dr. Chahal’s extensive education and experience in his profession led him to approach my dogs condition without expensive surgery. Medications for accurate diagnosis helped his medical issues greatly. However, after weeks of immobilty I wondered if he would regain the ability to walk. Dr. Chahal felt confident that with treatment he would walk again. One day I received a call at work

and I was told Bandit managed to get his hind legs up and was walking. The staff were as excited as I was. Dr. Chahal’s guidance and medical expertise for all of my Bandit’s medical needs are properly managed and he continues to experience mobility improvement. My Bandit is a happy little dog again. I thank you Dr. Chahal, Mrs. Karen Chahal and your fabulous staff at Cheam View Veterinary Hospital with much heartfelt gratitude for your above and beyond help, care and treatment of my beloved dog. I understand that you purchased your business less than a year ago and are the new owners and like me, new to Chilliwack. To all pet lovers that want the best care and treatment for your little fur babies, I will say with confidence that your much loved family pets will receive the best care from Dr. Chahal, Karen Chahal and Cheam View staff. I have never met such kind, compassionate and caring people. Many thanks to you again.

TEACHERS, from page 1 president Katharin Midzain. “We’ll do that until we’re told we can’t,” she said. Teachers across the province are protesting legislation currently being debated in the legislature that would force an end to the labour dispute. Unless that legislation, Bill

kids are the most unpredictable thing in the world.” What’s the key? Patience, a sense of humour and respect, according to Gee. “If you treat them with respect, mostly you get respect from them,” she said. But Anderson said it also helps to keep an eye out for that one kid looking to rile up his or her 83 bus mates.

Get to know kids on their route whole school career. “You get some kids in kindergarten and drive them right up to graduation,” said Penny Boldt, a 14-year veteran driver. Gee groans and laughs when she reflects on how her age is outed by former riders. “Sometimes they come back and say, ‘Karen, you’re going to be hauling my son.’”

“You gotta figure out which one it is,” he said. “When they get on, I look at every kid, and I’m thinking, ‘Which one is the one that’s going to give me the most difficult time.’” Drivers with regular routes have the advantage of getting to know the kids they drive.

CHILLIWACK TIMES THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2012

Before building that deck S tatistics indicate that homeowners annually spend billions of dollars improving outdoor living areas. One of the most popular ways to do just that is to add a deck to a home. Decks are beneficial in many ways. Grillmasters love decks because they make the perfect place to set up a grill and a table and cook for family and friends. Those who simply love being outdoors find decks the perfect place to relax and soak up some sun or while away the evening hours. But homeowners who want to build a deck should know a few things before that process begins. ◗ Permits are necessary. Unless the deck is going to be especially small, you will likely need a permit to build it. Before buying any materials or consulting any contractors, make certain you know which permits you need and how to get them. If the proper permits are not secured before the project begins, you might have to tear down the whole project and start all over again. ◗ Decks don’t have to go on the back of the house. If the back of your house sits in the blazing sun all day, then it’s probably best to build the deck elsewhere, and that’s perfectly alright. So long as the

property and permits allow, decks can be built on the side of a home as well, and putting a deck on the side might be more comfortable. ◗ Decks don’t have to be made of wood. It’s easy to assume all decks are made of plain wood. However, decks can be made out of a wide variety of materials, natural or synthetic. Pressure-treated wood is perhaps the most popular material for decking because it’s not very expensive. But manmade materials that are a mixture of recycled plastic and wood bits or sawdust are also popular because they require no maintenance. But homeowners should know that manmade materials can get hot in the sun, which will require those enjoying the deck to wear shoes. ◗ Expect to do some digging. If you’re going to build your own deck, expect to do some serious digging. Local building codes will dictate how deep you will need to dig for the pier footings, which support the deck’s weight. Just how deep you’ll dig depends on your climate’s specific frost line, but it’s safe to assume you’ll get a workout in when digging. ◗ The deck can have multiple levels. Though many people associate decks with one level, it’s possible to have a multi-level deck if you

simply don’t have enough room to build a deck that will be big enough to meet all of your needs. A multilevel deck can break up those long flights of stairs while ensuring you will always have somewhere to go to escape the sun on a hot day. ◗ You will want to protect the deck. Decks are a costly investment, and you will want to protect that investment. If you’re building a wood deck, keep in mind the sun will beat down on the deck for most of the year. You can protect the deck by painting it. Paint provides sunscreen for the deck, stopping the sun from breaking down the material. Once you’ve finished painting, apply sealant, whether it’s oil- or water-based. ◗ Don’t forget fasteners. Fasteners will hide the screws for aesthetic appeal. But not all woods and fasteners are the right fit, as certain woods are only compatible with certain fasteners. Find out which fasteners make the right fit ahead of time. Because fasteners conceal the screws, they also make it possible to go barefoot on the deck. A deck makes a great addition to many homes, but homeowners should learn as much as possible about decks and what goes into building them before making any decking decisions.

What’s the difference? F

or decades plywood was the go-to inexpensive wood of choice for many homerepair projects. In fact, it was actually the first manufactured wood product available. Then the term MDF, or medium-density fiberboard, started making its way into home-improvement shows and among do-it-yourselfers, making it a popular material in recent years. Still, many people do not know the differences between these types of wood products. Plywood is constructed by gluing several layers of thin wood veneers between two pieces of wood to create a solid sheet. Experts say there is an odd number of veneer layers, and each one is attached at a right angle to the one below to add strength to the plywood. There may be knots or irregularities in the plywood because it is made of actual slices of wood. It comes in a variety of strengths, depending on the thickness of the plywood. Thickness can vary by sheet depending on the manufacturer, so each sheet may not be consistent.

MDF is formed with wood fibers or shavings mixed with glue or resin. Under heat or pressure, the MDF is made into a solid material. Because MDF is not made from slices of wood to form veneers, it will not have the traditional graining or knots associated with wood. This can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on how it is ultimately used. MDF is often easy to cut, drill and manipulate because users will not have to work around grain or knots. But users should be careful to drill pilot holes before attaching MDF because it can split. Due to machine creation, MDF is generally uniform in thickness, which makes it consistent for many uses. It is important to note that sanding and cutting of MDF can cause the release of formaldehyde. Safety goggles and a mask are a must when using this product. Plywood is more readily used for walls, ceilings and subfloors because of its strength. MDF is widely relied on for building cabinets, crafts, shelving and trimwork. (MS)

Spray insulation combats mould

I

f you worry about mould in your home and are trying to find solutions, you can take one simple step to help prevent it from happening. Mould is commonly found in houses that have poor wall insulation. As moisture builds up, the interior of the walls can slowly rot. This gives off a foul smell and reduces the overall stability and quality of a property. You may need to completely strip your walls to effectively repair them. Such a repair can be expensive, but in order to prevent this situation from occur-

ring, you can choose an alternate kind of insulation for your home. Spray foam insulation, like Icynene, is a good choice, especially for preventing mould. Unlike other insulation, spray foam protects your walls against moisture by forming an air barrier. Prevention of mould, dust, dust mites and other common airborne irritants will improve the quality of the air in your home and ultimately the investment value of your house.

Chiefs punch their playoff ticket Chilliwack Vernon

4 2

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack Chiefs are playoffbound. The Chiefs squeaked out a 42 victory over the Vernon Vipers Tuesday night to clinch a playoff spot in the franchise’s first year back in Chilliwack. The win over the fifth-place Vipers secured Chilliwack at least fourth place in the Interior Conference. The Chiefs are also still in reach of thirdplace Prince George. Chiefs netminder Mitch Gillam made a season-high 47 saves to bar the door on Vernon’s playoff hopes and get his fifth consecutive victory. After a scoreless first period, Chilliwack (briefly) took control of the game early in the second. The Chiefs’ power play entered Tuesday’s game having failed to score on its previous 13 chances. But after failing to get the puck on goal on a first-period opportunity, the power play finally found the net early in the second when Alexandre Perron-Fontaine picked up a loose puck in the slot and snapped it past Vipers goalie Kirby Halcrow. A minute later, Trevor Hills tipped a Kit Sitterley centring attempt past

Halcrow to add to the lead. But sensing their season was in danger, Vernon turned up the pressure and quickly leveled the score. Adam (brother of Jeff) Tambellini scored on the power play at the midway point of the period, and Vernon sniper Darren Nowick finished a nice passing play soon after to tie the game. The Vipers needed a regulation win to keep their playoff hopes alive. But despite outshooting the Chiefs in the third period 20-8, it was Chilliwack who got the pivotal third goal. After a goalmouth scramble in which Chiefs forward Michael Spring kicked loose Halcrow’s goal stick, the puck squirted to David Thompson, who wired what proved to be the winning goal past the Vernon netminder. Josh Hansen sealed the win with an empty-net goal. Head coach Harvey Smyl—who entered the season with the goal of making the playoffs, a task made more difficult by rules that limited the number of playoff teams in each conference to four, rather than the previous eight—said his squad worked hard but seemed to show some nerves Tuesday. “It just seemed that we didn’t have the same confidence we have been showing lately,” said Smyl.

All-native hockey tourney brings community together Hoping fans will come and support local Ice Hawks

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he members of the Sto:lo Ice Hawks hope Chilliwack rallies around the team at its inaugural all-native hockey tournament next month. The tournament will run April 20 to 22 at Prospera Centre and feature eight teams from around B.C. playing full-contact hockey, along with a women’s game. Similar tournaments are held every year around Canada and Soowahlie Chief Otis Jasper, who plays for the Ice Hawks, says the tournament has two purposes: give local native players a reason to continue playing the sport; and give the community as a whole another team to rally behind. “There’s a fairly high number of young people playing and we wanted to create something that, if they’re not going to go onto college or junior hockey, it’s something they can continue that healthy lifestyle,” said Jasper. As for Chilliwack at large, Jasper added that he and Squiala Chief David Jimmie “want to create more of a dialogue in Chilliwack about Sto:lo being the local First Nations. So instead of it being a political issue . . . here’s something

through sports that we can talk about Sto:lo and it’s not a contentious issue, it’s our local team and it’s who we want to cheer for.” The Ice Hawks have a mix of players that include a number of former junior and minor pro veterans. They include Jasper, who played junior hockey for the Quesnel Millionaires and goalie Matt Wealick, who played in the minor pro Central Hockey League in Texas. Most of the players are in their 20s, with Jasper the oldest of the bunch at 35. “They’re really excited,” said Jasper. “They didn’t really think it was going to happen and it’s been so embraced.” Jasper hopes to make the tournament an annual event and expand it to include a women’s pool. He would like to see the event becomes a highlight for local First Nations. As an example Jasper pointed to the Merritt tournament, which is now entering its 43rd year and now serves as a major community gathering. “A lot of the families, a lot of the people from that community who are living inVancouver or living elsewhere are all coming home for that weekend. It’s like a big homecoming for their nation,” he said. “It’s a big community event.” Already teams from Hazelton, Alkali Lake, Prince George and Merritt have come on board. Jasper is also trying to entice what he says is a “legendary team” from Ashcroft that plays a villainous Charleston Chiefs-style of play. “They’re a monster team,” says Jasper.

Sports CHIEFS, from page 16 much of the credit for the win to Gillam. “Mitch played really well,” said Smyl. “With the way that they were playing the game as the game went for ward, we needed more support also from the forwards because they were attacking us with four guys on all rushes. I think Mitch did a great job of eliminating first shots and then our guys did a good job of making sure they weren’t able to get any rebound opportunities.” Miller returns Chiefs captain Tyler Miller returned after a prolonged absence due to a lingering shoulder injury. His presence on the blue line had a trickle-down effect. Kody Dhaliwal was able to return to centre the Chiefs checking line, which was tasked with trying to shut down the Vipers top trio. And Miller also took some pressure off Thompson, who had been eating up much of Miller’s ice time. Smyl was pleased with Miller’s return and the stability it gave to his lineup. “I think that Tyler played within himself,” he told the Times. “He certainly used up

It’s Miller time some very, very valuable minutes.” Eye on third Having secured a playoff berth, the Chiefs attention now turns to third place. Chilliwack is four points back of Prince George but has a game in hand. The Spruce Kings’ two remaining games are at home against the Penticton Vees, who haven’t lost in 40 games. Chilliwack has three games remaining, only one of which is against a playoff squad. They also hold the tiebreaker over Prince George, meaning that the Chiefs could secure third place (and avoid the Vees in the first round) if: A) they were to win all three of their remaining games and if the Spruce Kings win once; or B) they win two of their three remaining games and Prince George loses both games in regulation to Penticton. Vernon plays the Coquitlam Express in Coquitlam Friday afternoon before returning home to the friendly confines of Prospera Centre to play their final two games at home this weekend. The Chiefs host the Westside Warriors Saturday at 7 p.m. and the Trail Smoke Eaters Sunday at 5 p.m.

Rebekah Brisco and Dylan Coulter as Rosalind and Orlando.

You like it . . . you really like it T

his year’s UFV Theatre Shakespeare production is the delightful romantic comedy AsYou Like It. Such is its endearing popularity that this is the third time it has been produced by the department: it was presented first in 1984 and again in 1998, and both productions generated excellent feedback and positive audience reaction. In AsYou Like It, Rosalind, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved characters, is forced to flee with her cousin Celia and court jester Touchstone to the Forest of Arden, to escape the

wrath of her tyrannical Uncle. To survive, she must disguise herself as a man. When she meets Orlando, the object of her desire, in Arden, an intriguing examination of the meaning of romantic love ensues. AsYou Like It features wonderful comic characters and situations, a happy ending and a wrestling match to boot. With a cast comprised of past and present UFV Theatre students, casting is as follows: Rebekah Brisco, last seen as Sylvia in last season’s production of The Girl in The Goldfish Bowl will play the role of Rosalind

and Dylan Coulter, who appeared as Ferdinand in The Tempest, is Orlando. Gabriel Kirkley, who also appeared in The Tempest as Caliban, takes the role of the world-weary philosopher Jaques. Other roles include: Gabby Bohmer as Celia; Eli Funk as Touchstone; Daniel Campbell as Oliver; and Danielle Warmenhoven as Phebe. Performers playing multiple roles include Cait Archer, Morgan Cox, J.D. Dueckman, Matt Jansen, Danielle Millette, James Servizi, Thomas Smith, Luke Stevens, Josh Tompke, Jessie Whatley and Stephen Wilhite.

The play is directed by faculty member Ian Fenwick. Set design for AsYou Like It is by Jay Havens, with costume design by Heather Robertson and lighting design by Astrid Beugeling. Rae MacEachern is stage manager. Dance choreographer for this production is Kyra Esau with combat choreography by Paul Gelineau. ◗ AsYou Like It opens March 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Chilliwack campus theatre and plays March 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24 with matinees March

CONCERT SERIES

Cash & Cline

T

he star of a hit play about Patsy Cline and one of the top Johnny Cash tribute acts in North America team up at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre next week to bring to life the hits from the much-loved music icons. Country Legends, Cash & Cline: A Tribute to Patsy Cline & Johnny Cash stars Sara Jeannie Hosie as Cline and David James & Big River as Cash and his band and comes to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, March 14. Hosie sings from her heart and her soul, paying tribute to Clines classics, from the beautiful “Faded Love,” the tragic “I Fall To Pieces” and the iconic “Sweet Dreams.” Hosie was the star of the play A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline, which played sold out performances throughout B.C. She received many glowing reviews for her rendition of Cline. Her stage presence and stunning vocal range have had audiences and media across Canada begging for more. David James & Big River is North America’s favourite Johnny Cash tribute act, performing all of the hits spanning five decades of Cash’s career. James, who plays Johnny Cash, nails his mannerisms and voice down, proving this is the most authentic Johnny Cash Tribute in the business. A living prodigy to one of history’s true music icons, this is almost Johnny Cash. Cash once said, “You know, performance is communicating. You’ve got to communicate. You’ve got a song you’re singing from your gut; you want that audience to feel it in their gut.” James entertains with that same principle, singing all of the great Cash songs. Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents Country Legends: A Tribute to Patsy Cline & Johnny Cash March 14, doors open at 7 p.m. show at 7:30 p.m.
