Little value change

hilliwack’s residential property values are virtually unchanged from a year ago. Most owners of single family homes should see no change at all in the value of their properties in the 2013 assessment notices they should receive in the next few days. “The good news is that the mar-

This year’s residential property assessments similar to last year’s ket is relatively stable,” John Green, deputy assessor for BC Assessment told the Times. “When people get their assessments, there’s not really going to be a big surprise because there is going to be stable yearover-year value.” The assessed value of the “typi-

cal” home Green used for the 2013 roll (valuation date of July 1, 2012) was $385,000, which is completely unchanged over 2012. (The assessment roll properties used for the calculations are not See ASSESSMENTS, Page 4

or the second time in six years, Chilliwack’s New Year’s Baby was not born on Jan. 1. There were no births on the first day of 2013 at Chilliwack General Hospital (CGH) and none by 10 a.m. on Jan. 2, although one woman had gone into labour, according to Fraser Health. The first baby of 2013 born in the Fraser Health region was Shane Greenwood, who arrived at 12:26 a.m. at Langley Memorial Hospital. Weighing in at nine pounds, five ounces, Shane was not only the first baby born in the Fraser Valley but the first in the Lower Mainland this year. While the maternity ward was quiet in Chilliwack early on New Year’s Day, staff were hopping in Langley as three boys and two girls arrived on Jan. 1. And while Shane Greenwood See BABY, Page 4

Officials call fire suspicious

C

hilliwack firefighters celebrated the new year by snuffing out a “suspicious” fire in an abandoned downtown house early Tuesday morning. When they arrived, firefighters found smoke coming from an uninhabited home in the 46000 block of Bole Avenue. Firefighters forced their way into the home and extinguished a blaze in the living room.

The house sat between two apartment buildings, but Fire Chief Richard Ryall said the fire was confined to the house’s interior. He added that “entry into the house had been compromised and the cause of the fire is suspicious.” The fire department and the Chilliwack RCMP are continuing to investigate.

he Idle No More movement continues to garner attention as First Nations members and their supporters take part in gatherings, protests, marches and even blockades. In Chilliwack, there was a demonstration at Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl’s office on Dec. 21, another at Cottonwood on Boxing Day and a “sacred ceremony” at the Vedder River on New Year’s Day. And more is coming. Anyone planning on heading to Washington on Saturday may want to give it a second thought as some Idle No More members have called for all border crossings to be shut down on Jan. 5 “to show the government that we are willing to escalate this to a point where we shut down the country.” The day after Christmas there was a temporary disruption at Cottonwood Mall as protesters drummed and sang among post-holiday shoppers. “Harper is an old Indian fighter, that’s what he does,” Sto:lo Grand Chief Ken Malloway said at the mall protest. “He’s going to poison the river and the fish are going to die and our rights are going to die . . . . It’s time now for all our people to step up and fight this guy. This is our Little Big Horn and he’s Custer!” Earlier in December, dozens of Sto:lo Nation members and supporters marched to Strahl’s constituency office. Approximately 20 of the 60 people in attendance jammed into Strahl’s foyer and waiting room drumming and singing. In response to the protest, Strahl said he respected the rights of any group looking to peacefully protest, but he disputed the claims that Bill C-45 is damaging to the environment and First Nations interests. Strahl said Bill C-45 makes

amendments to the land designations provisions of the Indian Act, which will make it faster for First Nations to lease or rent reserve land while they maintain ownership. He also said the changes to the Navigable Waters Protection Act do nothing regarding environmental protection. “Our government has taken significant steps to improve the relationship between First Nations and the Crown,” he said via email. The Idle No More movement, inspired by the hunger strike by Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, was formed after four woman used the term “Idle No More” in a Saskatoon protest against the federal government’s Bill C-45. On Jan. 1, a couple dozen people gathered at the Vedder River for a “prayer offering to the water,” according to Skwah band member Eddie Gardner. “The water is what it’s all about,” he told the Times Wednesday. “We wanted to also feed our ancestors because that’s where our vision for living in harmony and the natural world come from.” After the Boxing Day demonstration at Cottonwood Mall, a number of people called it disruptive, something Gardner doesn’t dispute. “The drummers were very loud,” he said. “I think some of the merchants probably found it disruptive and maybe it interfered with their business a little bit but we didn’t stay there all day. . . . We did it at a time when we thought there would be lots of people there so we could raise the consciousness of the people. When you do that you do take a risk of annoying some people and educating others.” Gardner said no dates were set for anything else locally, but he has an Idle No More “teach-in” planned for the University of the Fraser Valley in the coming weeks in addition to another rally at Strahl’s office.

No better time to make a healthy choice and join fitness program

A

University of Victoria physical activity program is looking for Chilliwack volunteers to help people live up to their exercise goals. Active Choices is a free, personal, telephone-support program that pairs participants (anyone 19 years and up who wants to make physical activity part of his or her daily life) and coaches, who help them set exercise goals and keep them on track with regular phone calls. “The program teaches self-management skills, such as goal-setting and problem-solving, to help shape exercise habits,” Active Choices co-ordinator Angela Sealy said in a recent press release.

Teaches goal-setting, problem-solving

Because participants set their own goals and schedules, the program is tailor-made for them. Coaches, instead of telling participants what to do, work with them to develop a personal activity plan and then help track their progress. Volunteers also provide health tips and direct participants to local physical activity resources, whether it’s walking trails or fitness centres. Coaches get all the training they need during an intensive eight-hour training session and are then paired with two participants for six months.

After an initial in-person meeting, the rest of the program is delivered over the phone. Besides being personally physically active, therefore, coaches must also be willing to commit 15 minutes per week for check-in phone calls. The next training date for coaches is scheduled at the Chilliwack Public Library Jan. 19 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ◗ To register for coach training or for more information about the Active Choices program, call 1-877-522-1492 or email angela.activechoices@shaw.ca.

The men’s group at Cascade Lodge kept themselves busy last year assembling toys for the Wooden Toy Makers Society.

BY KEN GOUDSWAARD kgoudswaard@chilliwacktimes.com

“A

toy is born,” declares Bert Fleenor, pushing a strangely articulated wooden lizard along the dining room table. “That’s why I call him trouble,” says Chanel Krossenger, joining the rest of the men’s group, which bursts out laughing at the antics of Fleenor, who clearly is enjoying himself. Bert is a member of the men’s group at Cascade Lodge. They meet once a month. They like to crack jokes—and non-alcoholic beers—and they revel in each other’s company. The large table in the dining room is transformed into an assembly line of sorts. Wooden toy parts, supplied by the B.C. Wooden Toy Makers Society, need to be put together. It’s the final stage for this, the third batch of toys the men’s group has put together this year. Bert’s fingers, not so nimble anymore, struggle to string beads and complete

“It gives them a sense of purpose. As soon as you tell them it’s for kids they are all in.”

Chanel Krossenger the assembly of a wooden toy he hopes will bring a smile to the face of a needy child. It may seem a simple task, but for the men gathered, it takes concentration. Hands that have seen a lifetime of work don’t bend quite as easily as they once did. But, with a little encouragement from Cascade Lodge staff, they take to the task ahead and lovingly produce a wobbly wooden lizard that even they can’t help but be amused by. “It gives them a sense of purpose,” says Krossenger, the recreation manager at Cascade Lodge. “As soon as you tell them it’s for kids they are all in.” During the summer months the men did a lot of sanding and inserting dow-

els for the articulated legs of the lizard. The task helps maintain their manual dexterity. And, as always, it never fails to bring about hoots of laughter. “We laugh as much as our residents do,” says Sarah Laffin, a recreation assistant at Cascade Lodge. The men’s group has produced more than 50 toys for the society (in total, the Society made 1,800 toys last year), something president and founder Robert Prinse says goes a long way towards completing their annual campaign. Prinse credits a Cascade nurse, whose husband was a former “wood elf” with the Toy Society, with seeing the potential for a mutually beneficial partnership. “She recognized that the gentlemen at Cascade wanted a wood project,” he says. The Toy Society distributes the handcrafted toys throughout B.C. in co-operation with various Lions Clubs. This year Lordco has generously donated delivery services to those towns selected to receive wooden toys.

A little prognostication

E

ach year, journalists around the globe take it upon themselves to predict what will happen over the next 12 months. Each year they fail. But whether because of hubris or because their other six column ideas fizzled out and now they need to write 500 words in 20 minutes, they try, try again. And so, I give you my predictions for Chilliwack (and surrounding area) for 2013. Call up your bookie, lay some money on the line. These can’t help but come true. January: After the Paramount Theatre is demolished it is revealed that the downtown landmark was built atop a Mayan/Stonemason burial ground. Incan/Illuminati spirits are released, but Indiana Jones arrives to save the day and allow for the construction of Chilliwack’s newest parking lot/welcome mat. February: After celebrating Family Day on Feb. 11, Chilliwack men and women reconvene three days later on Feb. 14 to bundle their kids up and usher them next door, where the 13-year-old reformed juvenile delinquent has promised to not let Suzy play with his Samurai swords again. March: The Chilliwack Chiefs head into the post-season on a roll only to discover that their

TYLER OLSEN

Win,Lose OrTy relocation agreement with the BCHL forces them to play all their 2013 playoff games in Quesnel. April: A Chilliwack man is arrested for the murder of a Kelowna resident who had the bad sense to proclaim: “March flowers bring April showers.” May: Just before the 2013 provincial election, MLA wannabe John Martin ditches the BC Liberal for the Marxist-Leninist party, citing their opposition to everything he didn’t once not dislike. June: A graduating member of the the class of 2013 proclaims she will totally still remain friends with that other girl who sat beside her in that awesome class with the best teacher ever. Or maybe she sat behind her. Whatever. Best friends forever! July: Organizers get too clever when they try to top last year’s corn-husking world record by attempting a new record for most people simultaneously corn busking (e.g. playing sidewalk music utilizing pieces of corn). It is a disaster when nobody thinks the concept is

funny, even after it is explained to them in parentheses. August: The Chilliwack Fair erupts in violence when pie contest judges Chef Dez and Mayor Sharon Gaetz disagree on what pastry tastes the best. Factions assemble and separate, with the Dezites, as they become known, fortifying the Threshermen building and the Gaetzians grabbing weaponry from the West Coast Lumberjack show and taking the high ground atop the rock climbing wall. September: An incoming member of the class of 2014 wrinkles her nose upon arrival at school and says she hates and can never be friends with that mean, ugly girl who sits beside her in that one class with that awful teacher. October: Fire officials will urge teens not to set things on fire on Halloween. November: Fire officials will declare Halloween a success, despite the fact that numerous groups of teens set various things on fire. December: Journalists, reporters and other who need to fill space will look back on certain predictions made 12 months prior and declare themselves genius prognosticators. They will tell their bookies that next year will be better and their knees, really, do not need to be broken.

ow’s this for a New Year’s Resolution: try to stay alive for the entire year? It may not be entirely within your power to keep this resolution. Cancer and other diseases will take thousands of lives away from us in 2013. So will automobile crashes, workplace accidents, and a raft of other unfortunate mishaps. but there’s a difference. While we may be able to reduce our chances of contracting some fatal diseases—for instance, quitting smoking to avoid lung cancer, changing our eating habits to reduce the likelihood of heart disease, etc.—accidental death is nearly always avoidable. Driving offers a wellspring of opportunities to keep the New Year happy. Simply exercising more care while driving would cut the death rate across Canada significantly. Realizing that there is more time available if you stay alive all the way to your destination might be a good incentive to reduce your speed. Understanding the odds of killing yourself or someone else while driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs could help you in your resolve to make it all the way to the end of the year. And knowing that your odds of being involved in a fatal car crash while driving with a cellphone hanging from your ear are almost exactly the same as while driving drunk might make you think twice about taking that call without pulling over first. And once you get to work, try to keep your workplace safe. Think about what you’re doing, especially if you have one of those many jobs—working with machinery or vehicles or potentially deadly chemicals—that are inherently dangerous. Now you’re done your day and want to seek some relaxation? Maybe you’d like to go skiing? Stay in bounds! So no one else has to risk his or her life to recover your body after it has lost its resolve! Indeed, staying in bounds—in whatever activities you undertake—really is the key to achieving your New Year’s Resolution to stay alive through 2013.

Community support fuels her will to fight injustice Editor: I want to take a moment to thank Cornelia Naylor and the Times for reporting my story. Cornelia did an excellent job and was very compassionate and I applaud her ability to tell and print the exact truth. Thank you Cornelia. I am so grateful to her that words simply can’t explain. I want to thank my friends, family and community for their continued help, prayers and support for without them I would not be able to continue stress-free without worry of how I am going to pay my bills and my medications during one of most challenging times I have faced in life. On Dec. 31 I had my third round of chemo and have five more chemo treatments and I am awaiting a meeting with the radiologist/ oncologist to find out how much radiation I will receive. The funds that have been contributed and graciously received will hold me until mid March. It is really humbling to find myself in a position of need as I have always have been totally selfreliant being that I was a single mum with little support from my children’s father, working most of the time two or three jobs to support my family, to all of sudden having to rely on others. Well, let’s just say it has been one of the most humbling experiences in my life. Please accept my heartfelt thank you for all of your help. This is such a humbling yet ever so grateful journey. I am overwhelmed by the notes of love and generous donations made to me. The gift I have received from this journey is one of love, compassion, understanding from so many people. I am truly blessed by this and I ask myself how many people in their lifetime get to see just how much they are loved and cared for even by complete strangers. There simply is not one word in the English language that seems to express this feeling I have in my heart. This cancer diagnosis was not expected but I suppose that is why it is called the silent killer. I had no idea that this cancer was lurking inside my body like a silent thief in the night, prowling through my body and eventually settling in and stealing my left breast. I urge everyone to be diligent in receiving mammograms and be diligent in breast self exam. Breast cancer, when caught in the early stages, is very beatable and treatable. On another note, I just want to take a moment here to urge you all too please contact Mark Strahl or your local MP as I am continually frustrated by our government ignoring its sick.

help out there for us. It is disgusting that this should even happen to people at one of the most stressful times in their life. As an ex-employee of the Government of Canada (I worked as an assistant to members for refugee claims at the Immigration Refugee Board) I worked with the wonderful judges who do a wonderful job in the capacity they have to make decisions on refugee claims. Our judges are bound by our laws and at times feel their hands are tied by that. However, I am sure you all would be outraged to know the money our government gives to these illegal arrivals is more than our old age pensioners, our war veterans, our disabled people, people collecting EI receive. I will tell you I have yet to read the changes to the Refugee Act that have just occurred but up until recently this is what they would receive from our government. An illegal immigrant arrives on our shores, not always, but a majority of the time, they are fleeing a crime in their own country. They usually have to pay a considerable sum of money to a smuggler who finds them passage here. Once they are on the way here all documentation magically disappears or they have counterfeited identities. They arrive on our shores, at our borders at our airports every single day. They are processed, they are questioned, and it’s very evident that they have been coached before arriving to state they are claiming refugee status in Canada. The following is an example of how our tax dollars are spent on them. We house them, feed them, pay all medical and dental bills (I believe this may have been changed recently—not 100 per cent sure) all medications paid for, legal assistance covered while they plead their cases and a monthly benefit is paid to them by our government. These cases can take months, even years, to get to the hearing stage and all the while we the people who pay taxes who work in this country pay for it. Even if a refugee claim is denied they are able to stay here on our dime while they launch an appeal

into that decision. They can work if they want and are given a temporary work visa. Please, do not get me wrong, I am totally in support of true refugees that arrive in Canada, ones that come through the proper channels and are truly fleeing from atrocities of war, of inhumane conditions or treatment. I do welcome them with all my heart. It’s the illegal criminal elements that I don’t agree with our government supporting. There are many government programs to assist them—all on our dime. I am outraged that they receive the best treatment possible we roll out the red carpet for them, but if you are a Canadian who has worked here paid your taxes and your dues and find yourself in the unfortunate position of being without a company-sponsored disability program and have to rely on EI sickness benefits, once your 15 weeks of allowable EI runs out you are kicked directly to the curb. I still have eligible EI benefits which I paid into and I now forfeit because I have cancer beyond the 15 weeks of sickness benefits I was allowed. This is cruel. It is unjust. I do realize that I am one of the blessed ones who is fortunate to have a family, friends and a wonderful community that is helping me. I am worried about the ones who do not have this in place. I am frustrated by the runaround and by the lack of care and accountability of our local MP who promised me that he would speak directly to the minister responsible for EI about my case. I was really upset that Mr. Strahl was not forthcoming in telling me he had voted against the bill that would have extended EI benefits to 50 weeks to people who are ill. I had to find out from another source and when I called him on it, well, I was given great lip service. I have emailed and asked Mr. Strahl if he had spoken to the minister like he said he was going to on my behalf and I asked for a detailed copy of questions he put to the minister and responses received to date. Mr. Strahl has ignored my request and email.

As for the letter he wrote in support of my CPP claim he only wrote after many people, and I mean many, on my behalf contacted his office outraged that he would not assist me and write that letter. I had a conversation with him and it still took some begging and pleading with him to get him to write the letter that he should have just written in the first place when I asked him. I thought our elected officials were for the people by the people but I don’t see this happening at all. My intention, once I am well, is to be the voice to change this unfair practice. I really would appreciate everyone who feels this injustice to demand change. Please contact our government officials and let them know how you feel about this. We need to stand up as Canadians and make our voices heard. We need change and our voices, combined are what will help make the changes. I thank you all for your continued support and love.

Silencing residents isn’t democratic Editor: Re: Disagreement is always healthy (the Times, Dec. 24). The new chair talks a good story but actions show otherwise. As the newly elected chairman at Cultus Lake Park says, “it is my job to ensure that board business is conducted in a respectful and professional manner . . . . This is how I conduct business for the board and the public will benefit from the better decisions that will result from a respectful decorum.” I would like to know where the chair’s “open mind to the information available and listening to debate; respectful and professional manner; an informed and healthy debate is part of our democratic process” was when he and “his side” decided to go in camera and voted to cancel public question period and not own up to doing this until it came to light under Freedom of Information? The silencing of residents speaks volumes about his side’s beliefs in a democratic process. I would like to know how the “public benefited” in this travesty of procedure. The cancelling of question period was a breach of the board’s own bylaw. Some of the board members hold themselves above the law and then take it as a personal attack when their decisions are questioned. Yet these are the same board members who question why some of the residents do not fol-

low the board’s bylaws, and then they complain that these residents have a complete disrespect for the bylaws and the board. I guess that disagreement is a healthy part of this governance, as long as it is not voiced. It is the same old thing, do as I say and not as I do. G. Lister Cultus Lake

It’s a crime how criminals treated Editor: In response to Tyler Olsen’s article “The numbers say our city is getting safer every year,”published in the Dec. 27, 2012 Times. Well, it is not safer where I live. I sit on our strata council and we have had to deal numerous breakins, attempts at break-ins, thefts and acts of vandalism in 2012. Our average age here is 81 years and many of our owners are frail and ill. Some are able to care for themselves and for their daily needs; some require assistance. All require protection from the heartless criminals that have repeatedly victimized them in 2012 and previous years. It is now our policy to report all actual and attempted thefts and all vandalism. To not do so is to skewer the numbers to make headlines like the most recent in your Dec. 27 edition seem “real.” Let me list some actual events but not all : July 2012 : a gas tank (yes, the actual gas tank) was taken off an owner’s van; Oct. 2012: vandalism as a result of an attempted break-in; Dec. 2012: the most recent and most blatant, our new steel entry doors with unbreakable glass were crowbarred open, postal boxes opened, possibly mail stolen, the office locks broken, the electrical room lock broken, the storage locker building with nine lockers had the locks ripped out of the walls with known theft over $3,000. Next door at the church, two days after we were robbed, it was also robbed of much needed electrical equipment. The real problem—lawyers and judges and lenient sentences. Lawyers who knowingly defend the guilty are no better than the criminals themselves. Judges who put known criminals back on the street to continue their reign of terror are even more irresponsible. As for lenient sentencing, maybe the next young person hooked on drugs or prostituted will come from the family of a lawyer or a judge. Have See LETTERS, Page 20

Faith Today BY MIKE VANDERKWAAK Heartland Fellowship (A summary of the message by Pastor Mike given at the funeral of 17year-old Cole Larsen, Dec 19, 2012) he risk is real. We will do anything to keep them from harm and to bring the best out of them. When we bring a child into the world we are thrust into work and worry. We carefully watch our young child so she doesn’t fall out of the highchair. We warn him to not climb on top of the table; fishing hooks shouldn’t go in your front pocket; don’t touch the hot fireplace. As a child grows older into the teen years, she spreads her wings and goes further from the scrutiny of her parents. We have less control over his safety as he now is trying out life on his own. She can fool us

T

Children: Risk and hope if she wants. We know that it irritates our teenage kids when we offer our advice and warnings: don’t stay out too late, don’t drink and drive, remember to do your homework.We know these warnings don’t always sink in, that they sometimes only make the teenager angry with us. But we so desperately want to guard our kids from danger. And on their way out the front door, we offer our parting words simply because we need to say to them: “Have fun, but be careful.” The same goes for friends. We may see our friend going down the wrong path or in trouble, and we are not sure what to do. Most of the time

we feel powerless to do anything. We want the value of our friendship to be the very thing that helps him or her, but when we find out it wasn’t enough, we feel helpless. There are limitations we all have when helping another person. In rational moments, of course, we know full well that there are forces in this world, forces in our children, our friends, from which we’re absolutely helpless to protect them from. Our urgent advice, our worry, our hope, will not ultimately shield them from harm. Most of us are fortunate while growing up. We do crazy things, we take risks, and often the odds stay

in our favour. We dodge the forces of consequence. We escape tragedy and live long enough to get our acts together, grow up, and then worry about our own children. A couple of weeks ago, we were shocked into a reality none of us wanted to be in—a young man in our community, 17-year-old Cole Larsen, took his own life. His life was full of friendships, fun and hope—the manner in which he died didn’t change who he was. Death is an enemy and life is a gift. In times of questions and grief we are reminded that God is present and loving. We notice that there is a God with His hand extended, invit-

ing us to hold onto His. “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor demons, neither the present nor the future, . . . will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord:” Romans 8:38-39 This verse shows us where hope is. It tells us that nothing can come between us and God’s love—not death, not our past, not our future, nothing can separate us from God’s love. During this time in which we lost Cole, let us not also lose our ability to believe—let’s hang onto God and his love—through Jesus Christ our Lord. This will bring healing and comfort.

Chiefs goalie nets goal BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

W

ith their leading goal scorer out of the lineup, the Chilliwack Chiefs needed others to pick up the slack. But despite a goal from the last person you would expect to score— netminder Mitch Gillam—the Chiefs were still unable to muster enough firepower to overcome the Surrey Eagles last weekend. Two poor third periods and an inability to put the puck in the net saw the Chiefs drop back-to-back games to the rival Surrey Eagles. The weekend set couldn’t have begun in a more promising fashion for the Chiefs. With Eagles netminder Michael Santaguida on the bench because of a delayed Chiefs penalty, a Michael Stenerson shot deflected off Gillam, around the boards, back down the ice and, eventually, into the Surrey net. While the goal was first awarded to Luke Esposito, it was later changed to Gillam, making him the second Chiefs netminder to score. (Curtis Darling scored with a shot in the 2003-2004 season.) The Eagles tied the game five min-

Mitch Gillam is just the second Chilliwack Chief ever to be credited with a goal after one went in against Surrey.

utes later, but Trevor Hills’s 10th of the year restored the Chiefs lead with 10 seconds to go in the first. The two teams traded power play markers in the second, but Alexandre Perron-Fontaine’s goal at 13:35 of the period was the last time the Chiefs would beat Santaguida over the weekend. The Eagles tied the game midway through the third, then scored what turned out to be the winner with 3:52 remaining on the clock. A late emptynetter made the score 5-3. The following evening, the teams reconvened at Prospera Centre for Fill the Rink for the Food Bank night.

But in front of the largest crowd of the year—3,369 fans—the Chiefs couldn’t find a way past Santaguida. Even though he didn’t score, Gillam was solid between the pipes. The two teams combined for 62 shots and no goals through 40 minutes. But in the third, the Eagles finally found a way past Gillam, with Trevor Cameron burying a rebound five minutes in for what turned out to be the game-winner. Brady Shaw added a second late in the third and Stenerson added an empty netter.

Filling the cupboard With help from Cooper’s and SaveOn Foods, the Salvation Army collected enough food to fill six pallets. Salvation Army food bank co-ordinator Don Armstrong said that works out to about $13,000 worth of food, or around 7,000 pounds. He said the donations will likely last for about a month.

Thanks Bruce, I have a young family, a husband and three kids and my life is very complex. I needed choice, customization and spending a lot of money on glasses was something I couldn’t justify. My Great Glasses experience was awesome. I didn’t need an appointment for my eye test and I got three pairs of glasses for less than I paid for one pair at my regular optical store. I couldn’t believe how great the deal was and how accommodating the staff were to me. I will not buy glasses anywhere but Great Glasses in the future. I’m so glad that Bruce was willing to fight for good customer value. Sincerely, Amy Gill

UFV THEATRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTS

Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout

A Bittersweet Tragicomedy by Tomson Highway

Jan 9–26 at 7:30 pm UFV Theatre — Chilliwack Yale Road campus

(note: we have not moved to the CEP campus)

sdfghfghh dfgh

From left to right, Mandy Dyck, Geneva Perkins, Lisa Apps and (sitting) Phaydra-Rae Gagnon in Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout.

Angling for Ernestine T

he second production of the University of the Fraser Valley theatre department‘s 2012/13 season is the bittersweet tragicomedy Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout, by awardwinning First Nations playwright Tomson Highway. In Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout we spend time with four women of the Shuswap, Okanagan and Thompson First Nations as they prepare a banquet for the arrival of Canadian Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier in 1910. Everything must be perfect for the visit: the Saskatoon pies, the stuffed beaver and Ernestine Shuswap’s famous trout. In this production, the 100 years from first contact with the First Nations people to the time of Sir Laurier’s arrival are condensed into the time frame of one day. As the day progresses, the women move through a world in transition, as new laws, imposed by the European settlers, create a dreadful chasm between the two communities. This will be the second play by Highway produced

by the department, the first being the popular The Rez Sisters, in January 2000. UFV faculty member Heather Davis-Fisch makes her directorial debut for the department with this

production. Davis-Fisch has cast the following UFV Theatre students in this compelling work: Lisa Apps takes on the title role of Ernestine, while Mandy Dyck plays Isabel, Phaydra-Rae Gagnon

is Delilah Rose and Geneva Perkins is Annabelle. Dramaturg for this production is Megan Davies and assistant director is Gabby Bohmer. Set design is by Jay Havens who also designed the set and costumes for last year’s Arabian Nights production. Costume design is by Aaron Froc with lighting design by Gabriel Kirkley and sound design by Dylan Coulter. Stage manager is Cait Archer. ◗ Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout opens Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the theatre on the old Chilliwack north campus at Yale and Airport roads. There are two halfprice previews Jan. 9 and 10 and regular performances Jan. 12, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees Jan. 20 and 27 at 2 p.m. and Jan. 21 at noon.

Letters LETTERS, from page 9 they ever thought of that? It would seem that the courts, indeed the entire legal system, has renounced its responsibility to protect people like the elderly who live in my building. The real role of the legal system is to protect the innocent, everyday people, not the criminal underclass. Charges thrown out because of delays in the trial can be stopped; it only takes willpower on the part of the trial judge. It also takes integrity on the part of the lawyer. Do these qualities exist among these two groups of powerful and influential people? Judges fail to understand that in the system known as ‘Common Law” every judgement strengthens or weakens the law. Haggling over the meaning of a word is a waste of taxpayers’ money, delays are a waste of taxpayers’ money and it has come to be that the entire legal system is a waste of taxpayers’ money. Justice is not served anymore; criminals laugh at the system and all of society in their attempts to rehabilitate them. Some people can not be helped; it is time to acknowledge that and get the criminals off the streets before your child becomes a drug addict or a hooker. R. Cummings Chilliwack

Let the kids clean it up Editor: I would like to respond to the gentleman that wants more cleanup at the skate parks in Chilliwack. Gosh, chip bags, pop cans, water bottles, etc., how do you suppose they got there? I’m quite sure it is not from people passing by and tossing their garbage in the parks. I can also bet that if we checked there will be garbage cans by the parks. My suggestion would be, close the parks if there is too much garbage and let the kids clean up their mess before they are reopened. I can almost bet that the garbage can will start being used. Why should our taxes have to pay for more people

Letters to clean up the kids’ messes? Pat Johnston Chilliwack

Make littering a bigger taboo Editor: Whenever I see someone complain about trash in parks and on streets and how it should be cleaned up more often and then to suggest cleanup crews makes me laugh. We live in a society where we wait for others to clean up after ourselves. We leave our fast food garbage on the table and on the street because we are too lazy to dispose of it because we think someone else will do it. It seems to me that the people who use these recreational facilities are the main offenders who litter. Education is the answer, not more cleanup crews. Make littering taboo like smoking is. Ryan Gajsek Chilliwack

Please save, not develop forest Editor: There is a saying that the pen is mightier then the sword. I wish this were so in my case. Unfortunately, this letter will probably fall on deaf ears. To my understanding, Canada Lands is about to develop a beautiful piece of mini-forest, that is now still standing on the old army base. A name contest has been held to name this new developement. Do the people of Sardis and Chilliwack realize that this mini-forest is probably one of the last still remaining on the flats by the Vedder River? It has trees on it that are hundreds of years old. Trilliums, a once protected plant and flower by our provincial government, grow abundantly in this forest. Many species of birds, squirrels, rabbits, coyotes and other furry animals call this home.

The people of Langley are loudly protesting a forest that may be sold by their city, to a developer. No one seems to care about this ancient forest down on the army base. Are the people of Chilliwack and Sardis even aware this miniforest may soon be mowed down by bulldozers? There are beautiful walking trails throughout this little piece of paradise. Ancient trees have already been tagged to be brought down. This may be a case of the population not being aware of what is about to happen. The beautiful forest we are about to lose. It may be another case of our land being sold out from underneath us, as our Canadian north is slowly, and secretly, being sold to foreign investments by our federal government. People beware, the Canada we once knew and fought for is disappearing before our very eyes. Our forefathers must be turning over in their graves. Louise Matthews Chilliwack

Area is a living hell for resident Editor: Living between Fletcher and Victor streets and Cleveland Avenue, you would think you are living in hell. The language yelled and screamed is completely horrible. It details how many ways you can die. The violence never stops.It’s perpetual. And yet they come back for more. You say to yourself, there’s going to be gunplay, somebody’s going to die. And what happens? Yes, confirmed gunshots. In this country you grow up with a crazy tradition of New Year’s—a little bit of noise. But nothing could prepare you for this street from hell. They have no shame and they don’t even hide it. On New Year’s there were explosions, possible gunshots, and screaming beyond your wildest dreams that seemed to come from hundreds of people. Yes, they’re bold and arrogant, it was unnerving that so many of these types of people revealed themselves at once. It was like from a horror movie. One you wish would end 20 minutes after this exhibition of selfishness and

Looking for exceptional volunteer

M

ark Strahl, MP for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon is encouraging local residents to nominate exceptional volunteers for a Prime Minister’s Volunteer Award. “Our community benefits greatly from the tireless efforts of many volunteers. I would love to see a member of our community recognized for their exceptional contributions but for that to happen someone will need to nominate them,” Strahl said. The call for nominations is open until March 1, 2013. Nominators may be any per-

son or group with direct knowledge of the nominee’s contribution. Nominees can be individual volunteers or groups of volunteers, businesses or not-for-profit organizations. Award recipients will be recognized at an award ceremony, and can identify an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award). ◗ For more information about the awards and to access the online nomination form, please visit: www.pm.gc.ca/awards.

drunken disorder. I heard packs of police cars, I think two at a time. A few minutes later, another couple police cars sirens screaming. And then a few minutes later even more police cars with their sirens full on arrive in this area. But this never stops here. Honestly, this moral bankruptcy continues endlessly. Talking to other good tenants about this they say they are living in fear of it. Management says for us to call the police. I have called them so many times I know their names and phone numbers off by heart. I asked my fellow neighbours if they called. They say, “oh yes, we constantly phoned the police.” But it continues. Lives are destroyed and good people witness it and live with great anxiety beyond your belief. I wish for you to hear this story in the hope something good can come out of this. C. Adams Chilliwack

The benefits of multi trip coverage. You can plan your vacation down to the finest detail, but an unexpected accident and accompanying medical costs can not only ruin a trip, they can have a substantial impact on your finances.

DYCK, Irene (nee Stupak)

July 11, 1935 - Dec. 28, 2012

A rainy night in December was moms last in this life. She left us then and went to her heavenly home. At peace now after a lengthy battle with cancer. Born in Brightstone, Manitoba, the oldest of five girls, she grew up on the farm before settling in Winnipeg. It was there that she met the love of her life and in 1957 married John. Blessed with two children they moved west to Vancouver in 1965 where they completed their family being blessed with two more children. Family was the most important thing in mom’s life and we shared countless good times through the years which passed all too quickly. Mom and dad retired to Chilliwack, where they spent their remaining years together. She went to her well-deserved rest with her family by her side. She is lovingly remembered by her husband John, Children, Debbie, Darren (Karin), Drake (Sarah), Darlene (Dennis) and grandchildren Alexandra, Matthew, Kirsten, Rebecca, Brittany and John. She also leaves behind four loving sisters and their families. Service will be held at Sardis Community Church at 45625 South Sumas Rd. in Chilliwack. Donations to the BC Cancer Foundation are requested in lieu of flowers. A light has gone out of our lives, but now burns brightly in heaven.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on ambition, status, prestige relationships and your dealings with authorities. From 2008 to 2024, higher-ups are serious, implacable, heavy-handed. Yet, from 2011 to 2018, rebellious urges visit you strongly; you have seldom been so unwilling to compromise. The result could be a battle royal: but before you enter it, contemplate their motives and your options. To succeed, fulfill higher-ups’ dreams and social wishes, which are the same as your own financial, research and/or sexual goals. Sorry this is puzzling: no other way to express it. Clues Sunday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Soon love questions will be resolved – the mysterious, the lustful, will dissolve to become understanding, gentle affection. (That’s not a decrease in love, but a transformation to a stronger base.) Continue, all month, to avoid friction with higher-ups: smile, tackle chores promptly. You might be “kicked upstairs” – into a management role. The nicest thing: these weeks are filled with a mellow wisdom: useless fears melt away. Relationships (to autumn 2015) are slow, demand loyalty and “repeated effort” – but this trend also brings the right mate to singles – clues Sunday. Gemini May 21-June 20: As I predicted, your friendship circle has begun to grow over the last few months (compared to 1996-2011). This month, you might fear that the old barrier has returned, as a solitary mood steals over you. But this is temporary – by late January, and especially February to June (and doubly especially in April) your optimism will return, and friendships will increase again! Meanwhile, use the solitude, depths, mysteries and urges of the present to invest, or to make good changes in your life: bold changes! (Best Thursday/Friday.) Protect health Sunday/Monday. New vistas midweek.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week starts with romance and/or passion – and/or, because the passion can be creative, or about a risky venture, or passion for a child’s future. Be careful in these – a secret, a too-lustful approach, or a money or health factor (e.g., herpes) could lead love into disappointment or anger. Be moderate. Tackle chores midweek. Thursday/Friday bring opportunity and opposition. True love is a potential all week, but if true love is born now, it’s likely to be a fiery, perhaps rocky one! The weekend is for mulling, figuring it all out. All month, invest or research in career. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A pile of work faces you. (With more chores than you might suspect on the home front, as Sunday/Monday hint.) Might as well plunge in and get it done. A relationship heats up now into February – this can be love or enmity, but a definite societal, intellectual, travel, cultural or legal theme accompanies it. “Dynamic” couples might agree to wed – or travel. Tuesday/Wednesday emphasize romance, pleasure, sports, creative surges and speculative ventures, but only Tuesday “come through.” There’s that work – in spades – Thursday/Friday. Careful Saturday eve: wrong relationship! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent lies on romance, creativity, sports, games, charming kids, beauty and pleasure – you’re riding a winning streak, especially Thursday/Friday, when a new love affair or a new creative project could start. But work demands your attention, too. This week, a schedule keeps you from careening all over the place. (Ignore schedules next week, when opportunities need flexibility.) Sunday (better) and Monday (a dud) feature short trips, communications, curiosity and variety. Attend to your foundations, home and family (and your need for rest) midweek – start projects Tuesday.

Jan. 6 - Jan. 12, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The focus lies on home, children, nutrition, land, security, retirement. These basic matters are undergoing deep, significant change in the 2008-2024 period. Many Librans “made their nest” in the last three years: but now you might be spending on that nest, or on your children. You don’t mind, because you see the lasting value involved. Still, keep expenses in line with a conservative income picture, now to late 2015 (clues Sunday/Monday). A romantic thread winds through January, could lead you to a true mate, especially from the 21st into February. Security and amour don’t mix. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent lies on communications and travel, especially Thursday/ Friday, when a new project might emerge. Be curious – what you find now might form the basis for future projects/actions. E.g., you might wander into a neighbourhood where your next home will be. Act slowly, wisely and gently on the home front all month. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (though little might get done Monday – stick to routine jobs). Chase money, buy/sell Tuesday. Settle into home comforts Saturday – a.m. lucky, p.m. not. Soon – not yet – a major, beneficial lifestyle change will arrive. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Chase money (buy/ sell, expand clients, tug your boss’s shirttail, etc.). That will be easier next week than this one, but by waiting you might miss a good opportunity (probably Thursday/Friday) to launch a lucrative process. You’ll feel restless all month, as a streak of curiosity and wanderlust draw you toward a pleasurable (or romantic) destination. Reading, writing, news media and coffee shops can ease your itchy feet. If you have feelings for someone, tell them. Don’t mistake solitude for security. Lie low, rest early week. You shine Monday/Tuesday! Travel Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue at a yearly high. Start important projects, see and be seen, call in favours, propose new schemes to bosses or employees. You’re on a rise! Money flows to you all month – bank it, or you could lose more than you gain. Spend only – carefully – on household items, real estate, food and shelter. Your optimism, cheerfulness and happiness rise on a swell of friendly feeling Sunday/Monday. (Monday, money and social plans might conflict.) Until late 2015 your hopes and wishes will be sober, serious – and more likely to come true. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Retreat, plan. Rest, contemplate. Support others, and seek support if you need it. Therapy, charitable acts, interfacing with government agencies or corporate head offices – these go well. Your determination and sex appeal are strong now, but keep them “in reserve.” Avoid overexertion, and overstaying your welcome. By the 19th onward, you’ll burst into an all-round explosion of accomplishment. Higher-ups are observing Sunday/ Monday. Smile, rather than vent your frustration Monday. Hope returns midweek. But the full extent of your weariness hits Thursday/Friday: find sweet rest. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This week and next bring popularity, light romance, wish fulfillment, entertainment and optimistic plans for the future. Be thoughtful Sunday/Monday. Wisdom will nudge you to reject a money source that’s “tainted” or too secretive. Be ambitious Tuesday; act early, take steps to firm/form alliances and seize career opportunities. Wednesday’s the same, a pleasant, ambitious day – trouble is, it yields little. Stick to routine. That popularity and light romance arrive strongly Thursday/ Friday – enjoy! But retreat Saturday, take a rest. All month, avoid unsavoury people and locales. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
