Booze binge on your card

Flood of support for water petition

Award-winning water worth fighting for, says mayor

M

ounties are warning the public to protect their identification after learning of a Chilliwack man who has been fraudulently buying booze with other people’s credit card data. Police say a liquor store in the Vedder area discovered in late January that a customer had made several fraudulent credit card transactions over the previous six months. The transactions began in July 2012, police say, and continued up to Jan. 4. Each time, police say the suspect bought liquor with a new Mastercard with a chip. The machine would report an error during the transaction, causing the clerk to swipe the card’s magnetic swipe. Unbeknownst to the cashier, the strip was loaded with another card holder’s information. The owner of the data would not be in the store, and would only be aware of the transaction after receiving the bill. “It has been confirmed that in some of these cases, the credit card data used to fraudulently make purchases has been obtained from people who have had their vehicles broken into and wallets stolen,” RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “We really cannot stress enough the importance of not leaving your wallet in your car. Identity theft is very far-reaching.”

“It’s diluted poo but it’s still poo,” Lem told the Times. “I don’t want to be alarmist; I’m just saying this is what the standard is.” Lem said chlorination is inevitable and that Chilliwack is the largest city in Canada he is aware of that does not yet treat its water.

Parents undaunted by EFI study BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

They say the will is there to implement program

arents lobbying for an early French immersion (EFI) program in the Chilliwack school district were undaunted by a 38-page, 13,000-word feasibility study that outlined all of the challenges implementing such a program would create. The report was presented to the Chilliwack school board at the meeting Tuesday night and outlined a litany of obstacles like increased staffing costs, lack of free school space, difficulty recruiting and retaining qualified bilingual staff, challenges with meshing a new EFI program with the district’s existing late immersion program and the need for new application/registration policies. “I don’t think there’s anybody around this table or anybody on senior staff or anybody that I talk to in any of my interviews that did not support the idea of French immersion or any program of choice that offers students another option or another possibility,” said Nancy Brennan, the outside consultant hired to prepare the report. “But what’s philosophically good and what’s physically possible are two different things.” But parents at the meeting were confident all the obstacles laid out by Brennan could be overcome if there

But Brennan warned parent support was enough will in the district office can dwindle once school districts start and on the board. “If the other school districts have it, making concrete decisions, like where clearly I don’t think it would be that to house programs.

First vice-president Laurie Lenardon, meanwhile, urged trustees to “think outside the box” and find a way to make the program work. “I know right now for you to find place for French immersion is very difficult, but it is a program my children have used in their work and in life.” Lenardon said she couldn’t move to Chilliwack when she started teaching here because her kids had already started in early French immersion, so she moved to Abbotsford. Forstbauer argues increased costs for an EFI program would at least be partly offset by an increase in student enrolment because families—like Lenardon’s—wouldn’t hesitate to move to Chilliwack and other families would keep their kids in School District No. 33 instead of sending them to other districts for EFI. “Not to look at students as dollars and cents, but that is resources going to other districts,” he said. The school board has voted to mull over Brennan’s report and refer it to staff for recommendations. If the board were to approve the program, Brennan’s first recommendation is for a September 2014 start date with at least one kindergarten and one Grade 1 class. ◗ See the full report at www.sd33.bc.ca.

Some months safer than others on local roads BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

D

ecember does not strike one as a particularly safe time to be driving in Chilliwack. Add the hustle and bustle of the Christmas shopping season to holiday parties and sometimes freezing temperatures, and one would expect carnage. Instead, December of 2012 was the most peaceful month on Chilliwack’s roads, with local Mounties attending to just four accidents, according to RCMP data. That is just one of the findings of a revealing analysis of crash data

Fridays and Saturdays busiest days for driving, while January and August the worst for accidents that is changing how local traffic cops patrol the city’s roads. Chilliwack RCMP’s traffic section responded to 420 collisions in 2012. Just under half of those accidents involved injuries. RCMP crime analyst Raman Dhaliwal looked at when those the crashes occur, and when those incidents resulted in injuries. She found that in Chilliwack, January (50 crashes) and August (49

hurt in collisions. Only 23 of the 205 collisions resulting in injuries took place between midnight and 8 a.m. Mounties say Chilliwack’s downtown core saw the highest incidence of crashes. Chilliwack RCMP say their work shifts will be altered based on the data analysis. “It does not make sense for us to be working at times when collisions are at their lowest,” said Cpl. Lee Dyson of the Chilliwack Traffic Unit. “These statistics are an invaluable resource to us that we will use to guide our enforcement.”

◗ Opinion

From typed page to Internet

W

arning: If you are easily nauseated by stories that begin with, “Years ago, when I first started out in this business,” you’ll want to keep your barf-bag handy. Consider yourself warned. Years ago, when I first started out in this business, there were newspapers still using lead type. I was lucky enough to land my first job at a desk equipped with an electric typewriter, but at least one of my senior colleagues—partly out of preference, but also because there weren’t enough electrics to go around—was still banging away at a sturdy black manual Underwood. To conserve paper, we typed our stories on the blank backs of press releases that came in the mail, were left at the counter or were dropped through the mail-slot in the front door. (It was purely a cost-saving measure: “recycle” was an uncommon word, and “environmentalist,” if it was even coined yet, was rarer still.) Stories were double-spaced, with extra-wide margins to leave room for second-thoughts, penciled-in changes and/or editors’ marks. Contrary to popularly distributed beliefs, there were (and are) no “drafts.” Community reporters, unlike their much higher-paid cousins at the dailies and nationals, were expected to bang out the story and get on with the next one. A reporter was expected to formulate the story in his head (there

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest were still relatively few “her” heads - journalism was still “a man’s job”) on the drive between the assignment and the office, and then “pour it out” onto the page. You gave the story a cursory look and corrected any typos you could find—maybe even shifted a phrase or sentence—in the margins, and handed it to the editor. There was little that could be more embarrassing than to find, after your story appeared in print, that the editor had had to make significant changes, except maybe finding your “first draft” back on your desk with “Rewrite!!!” bluepenciled over it—indeed, if that happened, it was a signal that you might be in the wrong line of work. If you did your job reasonably well, the editor glanced at your stories and added headlines before sending them to the back shop, where they were laboriously retyped by professional typesetters. I never got to see the lead-type process in real-life—the Langley Advance (yup, I’m still here) had moved past that about a year or two before I arrived. My sto-

ries came out of the typesetters’ machines on ticker-tape that another machine turned into galleys of type on photographic paper. The galleys went to proofreaders who marked typos, improper punctuation, and obvious misspellings in the margins. Corrections went through the whole typesetting process again, and then were pasted, line-by-line, on top of the errant bits. Then the galleys were snipped into strips by compositors who pasted them onto “flats.” Headlines were pasted on later, as were black-and-white photos (colour was a luxury afforded only for the annual Christmas editions, and required more than a month of preparation). The flats went to the press in big cardboard boxes - which if jostled too much, resulted in some of the pasted pieces falling off the page, with sometimes hilarious (and occasionally disastrous) results on the newsstand. This bit of nostalgia came oozing out of the nether corners of my brain while I was thumbing through last Thursday’s edition of theAdvance, my iPhone and Layar turning each of those pages into an extension of an Internet that I hadn’t even imagined as I sat down in front of my first electric typewriter. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the Langley Advance.

hose who persist in pining for the penny need to put it all in perspective. It’s simply not worth the bother. The penny’s worth has diminished so dramatically over the years, it’s practically worthless by historic measures. If you (or more likely, your grandfather or great grandfather) had put a penny in a drawer in 1914 and you took it out today, it would now buy one 20th of what it would have bought had it been spent instead of being squirrelled away. (That’s, of course, discounting the interest of collectors who would undoubtedly pay you a fair penny for that 1914 penny, especially if it’s in good condition and not too badly nicked or worn - a perfect penny of that date could net you nearly $100.) In other words, even that dime in your pocket today is worth about a half what a penny was worth at the start of The First World War. Today’s dollar has the real-time value of a 1914 nickel. Indeed, the penny has become even less than worthless. For some time now, the Royal Canadian Mint has pointed out, it has been costing about 1.6 cents to mint a penny. That means every 50-cent roll of pennies has been costing taxpayers 30 cents more than they’re worth to put into circulation. So let’s no longer pine for the penny, shall we? It’s gotten long past its bestbefore date. In fact, perhaps it’s time to nix the nickel, too. Just move the decimal over one place, and the dime can be our new penny—still worth only half what a perfectly sensible and useful penny was only a handful of decades ago. The loonie consequently becomes the new dime, and the ten-spot could be minted as a new silver dollar (actually, more likely made of nickel or some other, cheaper composite metal). Our money would once again be worth every penny.

No need to spoil our water

Editor: Can’t believe that Dr. Lem from the Fraser Health Authority now wants to spoil our water. I have lived here for about 20 years and do not recall any deaths or serious illness due to our water. I’m pretty sure it would of been all over the news. I also like how he plays on the fear of parents by stating that he would not allow his children to drink our fine water, or implying that you are irresponsible if you allow your children to drink it. I sure hope that parents won’t fall for this manipulation. More and more we realize that natural is better for us and now they want to add poison to our water, as that is what chlorine is. Besides ruining the taste of our water, it also can cause other problems such as cancer and I hope people will educate themselves before believing everything the health department feeds us. I mostly drink water and often comment how wonderful it tastes, even bottled water can’t compare. To think that they will soil it with chlorine makes me sick and sad. Pop and diet pop is far worse for us and our children among other things, but our water isn’t among them. I hope the mayor and council will show backbone and stand up to the health authority and we as a community will come together and stand behind them and fight for the right to keep our water as it is natural, good and safe. I have lived all over Canada and never found better water than here. I hope we will not lose this treasure and allow them to poison it with chlorine. Our city has gone out of its way to keep us safe with more then required testing so we all an enjoy the natural taste of our water, not soiled with chlorine. I would like to know if these three calls of E. coli came from our water supply or well water. I think this is an important question. Sabine Clarke Chilliwack

The proposed chlorination of Chilliwack’s drinking water comes with a serious threat to its award-winning quality. Health officials are trying to prevent a hypothetical E. coli attack through a sure and constant chlorine attack on all our citizens’ health. Just because something does not show immediate signs of being toxic doesn’t mean it’s harmless (see cigarette smoke). In fact, the long-term negative effects of ingested chlorination-byproducts (trihalomethanes or THMs) are well-researched and documented. As chlorine reacts with natural ingredients in our water, toxic elements, such as THMs, are formed. Seeing that the human body functions through innumerable, complex biochemical processes, to add a chemical substance to one’s diet will certainly not go unpunished. Health officials would do well in researching this matter before coming to any hasty conclusions and ordering the chemical contamination of our city’s drinking water. Unfortunately, although absolutely vital, nutritional and biochemical studies are merely sidelines in the general medical field. Mario C. Alleckna Chilliwack

Feels like a dictatorship Editor: In regards to the recent Fraser Health assault on our drinking water I am left asking myself is Canada still a democracy or has it become a dictatorship?

If our water is to be clorinated should the citizens not have a vote in what happens to our water? Fraser Health Authority should be called the Fraser Health Service. Citizens in a democracy should have the right to vote on what occurs in their community. Ryan Block Chilliwack

Nation-to-nation approach best Editor: I was intrigued by R. Selby’s arguments related to aboriginal land claims. I have two comments, one related to the role of democratic decision vis-à-vis aboriginal land claims, and the second is the suggestion that the aboriginal issue is only a financial one is overly simplistic. On the issue of democracy, I believe that people should be involved in political solutions regards to land claims. However, besides being a democracy, Canada is also a constitutional society based on the rule of law. Part of that British and Canadian law is that the Crown cannot seize lands owned by indigenous lands without conquest or treaty. Would we have the right of freedom of speech or religion chosen my by simple majority vote? Some rights are above a mere vote. In my opinion, there is a place for specific rights to indigenous peoples due to their longstanding use of this region. This is not to say that Europeans and Asians should abandon this area, far from it. Nonetheless, the law should facilitate the healthy survival of indigenous identities, just as land

is allocated for resource industries and environmental projection. Part of the land issue is related to generating revenue, another part is related to maintaining a cultural identity. Buying the land may not be the solution; we should proceed in a nationto-nation approach and joint land use planning as used on Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands). Thomas Cheney Sardis

Pieces all came together again Editor: The Friends of the Library had a successful puzzle sale. To the participants who donated puzzles to all those who purchased them, to the library staff who carted the puzzles, to the newspapers who advertised our event, to the merchants for their support and to my tireless volunteers for their hours of work I wish to express my thanks.

Don’t see apes flying airplanes Editor: In regard to the Bibles not being distributed in schools anymore: I believe that having the Holy Bible in Chilliwack’s school system would teach the children that they did not evolve from apes, but were created in the image of the God Almighty, the Creator (of the very first man and woman). Far as I know, I have not seen any apes driving cars and flying airplanes. Sandy Abel Chilliwack

News WATER, from page 1 Kim said. “Our daughter drinks the water non-stop and we don’t want her to be drinking chlorine.” Gaetz said the city spends millions of dollars on the drinking water system, there are 20 employees devoted to it and the city’s water has been named best drinking water in Canada twice. The issue began when Lem came to city council on Feb. 5 to say the city had to start adding chlorine to the water as a condition of its permit. He provocatively said that while he would drink the water, he wouldn’t let his daughter do the same. “The risk is very, very real,” Lem said. Gaetz responded that Lem is unnecessarily creating fear among residents. “Dr. Lem has frightened people in our community,” Gaetz said. “He showed a shockingly limited knowledge of our water system and I’m surprised by that. I’m surprised he would be so bold.” Gaetz also pointed out that the main distribution system has never had E. coli detected since the city took over. There have been two incidents of E. coli on Little Mountain and one on Promontory, likely caused by animals defecating in hillside reservoirs. There have been no reported cases of illness from the city’s drinking water. The city’s hillside water systems serve just five per cent of the city’s population and they function independently of the city’s main distribution on the valley floor. The city has been chlorinating the water on Little Mountain since August 2012 because of the latest incident. City staff have sent a letter to Fraser Health asking the authority to look at alternatives to full chlorination given the few incidents that have occurred did so in the hillside systems. But Lem told the Times that what is logically possible isn’t necessarily advisable for citizens. He also thinks that local water operators

E. coli fears

are doing a good job and that the contaminated water actually must have been pumped up into the hillside areas. “We are not being heavy handed; we are just enforcing the law,” Lem said. “I think the mayor is expressing civic pride and is trying to represent her community. But 80,000 men and women and children all deserve to have safe water and it is our responsibility to protect their health.” Gaetz said she hopes Fraser Health will listen to her concerns. She also said she is not surprised at the backlash in the community. “I believe that people nowadays, if you mess with their food, with genetically modified food, they are wary. If you mess with their air, the outcry from the whole regional district around Metro’s proposed incinerator, they are wary. And if you add chemicals to anything, especially something they need every single day of their life, something that Health Canada has issued warnings about the risk of colon cancer and bladder cancer, I’m not surprised at all.” A page on the city’s website directs people to contact Fraser Health about the issue of chlorination of the drinking water, but Gaetz said the health authority is not responding. “We are getting lots of complaints about Fraser Health not answering complaints to the public,” Gaetz said. “People are not getting accurate information from Fraser Health. Apparently they were not prepared for that kind of public concern.” Council advised Fraser Health that the citizens of Chilliwack need to be given the opportunity to comment on the chlorination of their drinking water through a public consultation process. Lem said the health authority hopes to work collaboratively with the city and that there is no timeline for chlorination to begin.

BREAK-INS, from page 1 projects this year, including intruder alarms at all schools and portables, security cameras at 18 sites, and roll shutters and security screens installed in high-risk areas. One anti-vandalism measure that hasn’t worked to prevent the recent spike in breakins, however, is the district’s long-standing “dark schools” policy. The district keeps school grounds dark to prevent youthful vandalism—like window-breaking and graffiti—inspired by an impulse to show off in front of peers. “If the campus is dark so they can’t actually see or show off what they’re doing, they’re less inclined to spray-paint walls and do all that kind of stuff,” Carradice told the Times in an interview last month. When it comes to break-ins, however, she

the world is a wonder to see every day

Sticking with ‘dark schools’ told trustees the policy tends to aid culprits rather than thwart them. “The difficulty with a dark campus is, while it discourages vandalism of the type that we normally think, it actually gives a pretty nice environment for theft, so the thefts that have been occurring over the last six weeks have been, to some degree, facilitated by the fact that our sites are dark,” she said. But given the arrests and that break-ins usually make up the smallest portion of vandalism costs, Carradice said the district will stick with the policy.

Faith Today

It just doesn’t get more real than this

BY EVANS HUNDERMARK Mountain View Church

I

n 1992 I met the love of my life. She was awesome—pretty as a flower, actually laughed at my lame jokes and she could bake the most scrumptious chocolate cake in town. I couldn’t help myself, I fell helplessly in love with the girl. We would phone daily and chat for hours and I would leave notes on her doorstep proclaiming my undying love for her. One evening on the porch steps watching the sunset, I told her I would buy her the moon just because I loved her. She turned to me and said, “If you love me, show me!”

I wasn’t expecting that response, so a year later I dedicated my life to her and we got married. I haven’t looked back since and love her more with each year we have together. Thinking back on those moments I cannot help but think how similar it is with God. He tells us He loves us, and professes His desire for us constantly throughout the Bible, but what use is love if it is isolated to just the words we speak? We all know that talk is cheap, and the word ‘love’ can be used for so many things. For example, I love my wife, but in the same breath I can also say I love pizza, my dog and going fishing. So when God says He loves

me, what does He mean and is He willing to demonstrate it? True love may be expressed in words but it is made real by our actions! John 3:16 tells us that God so loved you that He chose to demonstrate it in the most compelling way. He gave His son to take our punishment for our sinful ways so that we could have peace, no guilt and relationship with Him. But it goes beyond that, He promises a life of fulfillment, Hope and the promise of eternity with Him. All it takes from us, is simple belief and trust in God’s love and a confession of thanksgiving for the gift of Jesus. I struggled for many years not knowing love or what it meant to

be loved. I looked in all the wrong places to find acceptance. That all ended when I came to an understanding of how God loved me, with all my imperfections and failings. I didn’t have to become something different to receive His love, I just had to accept that He loved me. And how that relationship with God has affected all my other relationships—with my wife, my children, friends and workmates. Love, true love, is waiting for you. The Bible tells us that God not only expresses love, but He is love. He is love made real, He gives love a face and voice and when we look at Jesus we see love with flesh on. It doesn’t get more real than this.

Do you need to know love? Have you been denied love or had a bad experience with love? Today we celebrate love, but what is love without the one who invented it, who in His very nature and character is love, and who wants to demonstrate His perfect love to you? Can I challenge you to pray a simple prayer: “God, if you love me, then accept me as I am and show Your love to me.”As you celebrate love today, may you also experience real and true love, the love of God for you. Happy Valentine’s Day.

You win some, you lose more. Chilliwack Chiefs’ struggles continued last weekend, as they snapped a five-game losing streak but also dropped a pair of games to division rivals. The Chiefs beat the Alberni Valley Bulldogs 5-2 Sunday, but bracketed that victory with losses to the Prince George Spruce Kings Saturday and the Coquitlam Express Monday. Spruce Kings goalie Kirk Thompson turned away 44 shots Saturday as Prince George downed Chilliwack 3-1 at Prospera Centre.

Weekend split for Cascades

T

he UFV Cascades women’s basketball team split a pair of games last weekend with the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack. The Cascades, who entered the weekend ranked third in the country, lost 72-70 in overtime Friday night after the Wolfpack had scored at the buzzer to send the game to extra time. UFV had held a nine-point lead after the third quarter, but the Wolfpack rallied, scoring several key baskets off offensive rebounds. After TRU had tied the game at the close of regulation, the two squads played a tight overtime. But with the game tied as time ran down again, the Wolfpack’s Tracy Kocs was fouled. She sank both her free throws to give TRU the thrilling victory. Chilliwack’s Nicole Wierks led all Cascades players with 13 points. Aieisha Luyken and Courtney Bartel each added 12 points. The following evening, the Cascades took their revenge upon TRU and handed the Wolfpack a stiff 80-57 defeat. The Cascades came out strong, starting the game on a 10-0 run. They never looked back. Sarah Wierks led all Cascades with 20 points. Luyken added 18 points and six assists, while Kayli Sartori chipped in with 14 points and eight rebounds. With the win, the Cascades set a new program record with 16 wins in a single Canada West season. The

The search is officially on for a new executive director to lead our organization. The board of directors and staff wish to thank Patti MacAhonic for her service over the past 14 months.

for Fighting... but Thursday’s meant for the

eb. 18 marks the beginning of Chamber of Commerce Week, an opportunity for Chambers of Commerce across the province to demonstrate the outstanding value they provide to their communities. This value comes in the form of benefits and services to stimulate local economies, direct community promotion and support, and engage in an important multi-level advocacy role that benefits the entire province. Advocacy efforts of Chambers of Commerce in B.C. represent some of their most important work. Chambers raise issues that concern both their members and the community at large with local, provincial and federal governments. The network of over 125 Chambers of Commerce across B.C. is a unique business organization and gives issues a voice beyond the local level. This provides much-needed input to public policy, which benefits local

economic and social well-being. Direct support for businesses and the community constitutes another central area of chamber focus. Chambers of Commerce provide benefit, service and educational programs to their membership, supporting businesses and helping them achieve success. Chambers of Commerce also work diligently to promote and assist their communities. This support for both local businesses and the areas in which they operate directly stimulates local economies and creates vibrant communities Chambers of Commerce are community leaders in action. Chamber of Commerce Week recognizes and applauds this important contribution and brings further awareness about the Chamber Network’s influence and importance to members of the public and Chamber members alike.

◗ Other items to consider to reduce risk: 1. Routine maintenance schedules for all aspects of technology. 2. Tested disaster recovery plan—find out your risk now, not when something happens. 3. Reliance on a team of professionals and not a single person. 4. Security: how often are passwords changed? Who is allowed to access what? If you are unsure about any of these questions, have your computer guru, IT manager, or IT consultant provide answers before it’s too late.

◗ Is IT aligned with your organization-wide vision, mission, and core values? Choose between integrating these into your entire business and hiding them in the employee handbook. Is technology helping you reach your company vision and goals? If you have a core value of teamwork, does your technology encourage collaborative and effective teamwork? For a core value of integrity, are you 100 per cent legal with your software licensing? ◗ Do you have a comprehensive IT budget? Take a high-level view when budgeting. Sometimes you need to spend money to save money. For example, $200 can be saved by buying a cheaper

computer but thousands of revenue can be lost in productivity due to slow or broken computers. Website hosting in Texas is cheap, but slowly loading websites reduce sales. Personally dealing with tech issues can

provide short-term savings, but is your time better leveraged on other tasks? ◗ Do you have written documentation? What software licences do you own? What are the

The Chamber Voice

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce unveiled its Top 10 Barriers to Competitiveness for 2013 recently. The Canadian Chamber undertook this initiative last year to draw attention to the barriers that are holding back Canada’s progress and to urge all levels of government to act more swiftly to improve our country’s ability to compete globally. Canadian Chamber President and CEO Perrin Beatty declared the initial year of the initiative a success. “As we take stock of the first year of the Top 10, we made progress on several of the items we targeted,” he stated. “For example, our members recorded a major victory when our appeal for change to the regulatory processes around natural resource projects was overwhelmingly accepted by the government. For a country so dependent on the success of natural resource projects, implementing a more efficient process is a huge contributor to competitiveness,” said Beatty. The Canadian Chamber’s number one issue last year, as identified by the membership, was Canada’s skills shortage. “We held consultations across Canada that enabled us to gain a better grasp on this critical issue. We were very satisfied to hear the Prime Minister also identify the skills shortage as the major challenge facing our country,” added Beatty. The Canadian Chamber intends to maintain its focus on skills in 2013.

2013 Top 10 Barriers to Competitiveness:

◗ Skills shortages Governments and businesses across regions and sectors will need to work cooperatively and aggressively to address this ubiquitous issue, particularly in four key

areas: upskilling, immigration policies, education-employment alignment and aboriginal education and workforce development.

and administration costs on businesses and consumers. Canada must create a simple, fair and growth-oriented tax system.

◗ Barriers to world markets for Canadian energy products The overseas market will be of critical economic importance to Canada in the 21st century. Federal, territorial and provincial governments must act now to support the development of the infrastructure and relationships needed to realize the full potential of Canada’s energy endowment, or risk missing out on a historic opportunity.

◗ Poor innovation performance Canada lacks a definitive innovation strategy that brings coherence to the many government policies and programs affecting private research, academic research and commercialization. A clear approach that leads to action is urgently needed. Poor innovation leaves Canadian business vulnerable to competitors and to changing economic conditions.

◗ Inadequate workforce productivity Improved trends in business investment in productivity-enhancing technologies and equipment are encouraging but still leave Canada underperforming relative to its competitors. To improve its productivity, Canada must leverage advanced technologies and efficient infrastructure, support efforts to raise literacy and numeracy levels among workers and ensure its EI program is not a disincentive to work. ◗ Inadequate public infrastructure planning Government commitments to infrastructure have been intermittent and the criteria changeable, making private sector investment difficult and expensive. Mobilizing private investment to finance public goals is essential for infrastructure development. ◗ Tax complexity and structure Canada’s tax system overrelies on income and profit taxes, the most economically damaging forms of taxation. Canada’s tax system is also overly complex and, as a result, imposes unnecessary and significant compliance

◗ Deficient strategies for trade success in new markets Canada’s competitiveness is constrained by a focus on slow-growing, traditional markets. Canada must reduce its dependency upon its usual trading partners and expand its access to new markets in Asia, Africa and South America. Legal access to these markets is but the first step. Canada needs to construct trade strategies that will turn access into success. ◗ Internal barriers to trade Canada is still far from being a barrier-free internal market. Internal trade barriers cost our economy up to $14 billion each year. Canadian business still has to petition governments for the “right” to sell goods and services in Canada. There needs to be a new agreement that will deliver a single, unimpeded marketplace for internal trade, labour mobility and investment. ◗ Uncompetitive travel and tourism strategies Through a combination of high transportation costs and steadily reduced marketing efforts, Canada has slipped from seventh place among

the world’s tourism destinations to 18th place in just a decade. A huge industry, critical in every region, is struggling with its competitiveness and needs public policies that are forward-looking and supportive. ◗ Lack of access to capital A critical element of business competitiveness in any industry is access to capital—be it through venture capital or through foreign direct investment. Canada must support a sustainable private-sector led venture capital market and increase its appeal to foreign investors. ◗ The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is the vital connection between business and the federal government. It helps shape public policy and decision-making to the benefit of businesses, communities and families across Canada with a network of over 420 chambers of commerce and boards of trade, representing 192,000 businesses of all sizes in all sectors of the economy and in all regions.

Unity red hot for playoffs

T

he Unity Christian senior boys basketball team will launch into the post season with some steam behind them after defeating the number-one single-A team in the province during their final tournament of the season last weekend. The Flames handily defeated Regent Christian 67-25 in the first round of the tournament—the Big Bear at St. Jean Brebeuf in Abbotsford—but the second round saw them pitted against top-ranked St. Patrick’s. “We had the best game we have played all season,” said coach Mike Campbell. “They were stunned.” Unity’s Jon Vugteveen hit six three-pointers in the second quarter, and Ryan Billsten and Kevin VanRyk did further damage from the paint in the second half toward an eventual 75-68 upset victory for the Flames. About 200 orange-clad Unity fans were on hand Saturday as the Flames took on fifthranked West Point Grey in the final.

In what turned out to be a defensive battle, Unity trailed by three at the half, held the lead briefly at the beginning of the fourth quarter but eventually succumbed 55-51. Unity Grade 11 player Clay Driesen led the Flames with seven steals and 17 points, and Grade 12s Ryan Billsten and Kevin VanRyk were voted tournament all stars. The team, which was 8-0 in regular season play, starts its playoff run with the Fraser Valley Championships next week, and Campbell says his team is ready and gunning for the banner and a top-four seed at the BCs. Unity hosts the boys single-A provincial championships at UFV’s Abbotsford campus March 6 to 9. Unity’s senior girls team has also cracked the top-10 rankings this season. This could be the second time in four years that both teams represent the school and Chilliwack at the provincials.

he new year started on a positive note for the Chilliwack real estate market, bucking the trend in Metro Vancouver and the rest of the Fraser Valley. There were 125 sales worth $36.5 million last month up from 113 sales worth $31.5 million for January 2012. Outgoing Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB) president Cynthia Admiraal said she was pleased that the conclusion of her term is ending on a positive note. “Going into the CADREB presidency last February, I felt strongly that the Chilliwack and area real estate market would continue

Of the 125 sales last month, 63 were single family homes, and 52 were over the $300,000 mark. To compare January 2013 to other years, there were 111 sales worth $30.5 million in 2011, 122 sales worth $35.3 million in 2010, 71 sales worth $21.2 million in 2009 and 128 sales worth $40.6 million in 2008.

Cheam concerns stall gravel

BY LARRY PYNN Vancouver Sun

F

irst Nation concerns could derail controversial provincial plans this winter to extract gravel from the lower Fraser River. Contractors for Emergency Management B.C. were poised to begin extracting 230,000 cubic metres of gravel at Gill and Hamilton bars downstream of Agassiz to reduce flood risks. But gravel extraction “has been halted due to concerns by the Cheam Indian Band” in Rosedale and may have to be postponed for another year, said Tim Preece, flood-protection program manager with EMBC. “The sediment removal work on the Fraser has a limited window of February/March due to fish habitat and rising water level impacts,” he said. “The delay may mean that sediment removal work on the Fraser might not be undertaken this year.” The Cheam band, which has been involved in past gravel removals, wrote a letter to EMBC on Feb. 4, 2013, citing the government’s lack of consultation and “failure to take into account the knowledge of our people and the potential impacts of the proposed extraction on our aboriginal title and rights.” The letter, signed by band councillor Sidney Douglas, states that prior to Carol Loski taking over as director of the province’s flood-management program “we participated in the sediment

“These are juvenile salmon rearing habitats they are destroying. These big elevated gravel bars are hot spots for chinook during the spring freshet.”

Marvin Rosenau removal as did other First Nations.” Gravel removal has been a contentious issues for years in the lower Fraser River. There had been no removals for the past two years. Critics charge that the extraction is being done mainly to provide aggregate for construction, has little impact on reducing flood risk, and puts the rearing habitat of juvenile chinook salmon and other fish at risk. Marvin Rosenau, a former provincial fisheries scientist who now teaches in BCIT’s fish, wildlife, and recreation program, said that cancellation of the gravel-extraction works is good news, if it proves to be the case. But he stressed the need for a comprehensive gravel management plan with public input and computer hydraulic models supporting the government claim that gravel removal reduces flood risk. “These are juvenile salmon rearing habitats they are destroying.” said Rosenau, who is also a member of the Fraser River Gravel Stewardship Com-

mittee. “These big elevated gravel bars are hot spots for chinook during the spring freshet.” As for the Cheam concerns, Rosenau said the first nation clearly wants an economic role in any Fraser gravel removal in their territory. The federal auditor-general’s office in 2009 delivered a scathing report on Ottawa’s efforts to protect fish habitat, including a lack of monitoring, enforcement and accountability, and cited Fraser River gravel removal. The report by the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development on behalf of the auditor-general upheld the concerns of conservation groups about gravel removal, saying it had killed millions of juvenile salmon and failed to meet the province’s stated objective of reducing flood risk. In 2006, improper construction of a causeway for accessing one gravel removal site resulted in a side channel downstream drying up, exposing salmon nests and killing up to 2.25 million pink young salmon. Last August, Stephen Harper’s Conservative government said it had washed its hands of environmental assessments of nearly 500 projects in B.C. — including gravel extraction on the lower Fraser — as a result of a revised Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. Said Rosenau: “This is one more nail in the coffin of what’s been happening across B.C.”

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

It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to Jenny Peters, who passed away peacefully yet all too suddenly on Feb 10, 2013, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Chilliwack, BC. Jenny had a kind and loving heart. Her bright smile and energetic personality drew people to her wherever she went.

She will be deeply missed and remembered by her parents Rob and Leanna Peters, her sister Tania (Jim) Schulz and their children Maiya, Nicholas, Ryan and Madelyn, and her brother Mark (Rachel) Peters and their son Zander.

He is survived by his wife Flora, sister and family in Denmark, children Larry (Sue) and Debbie (Steven) and grandchildren Natasha, Shane, Dylan and John. He is predeceased by his son Hans Christian. Hans was born in Hyllested, Denmark and immigrated to Canada where he met his wife and raised his family. Hans lived life to the fullest. The family wishes to extend thanks to the wonderful staff on the fifth floor at the Chilliwack General Hospital. A private memorial for the family will follow.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your revels now are ended, Aries. Let go of social notions and prepare for some “sweet solitude” – a good rest, valuable contemplation and plans fill the weeks ahead. (Especially, good plans for career or dealing with authorities, which have been difficult these few years.) Sunday afternoon offers muddled directions: relax. Do errands, paperwork Monday, but avoid temper, “roughness.” Tuesday morn brings easy success, and a sweet friend. Head for home midweek, as your quietude deepens. Romantic notions and inventive ideas, creative expression, flow Friday eve and Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Pressures ease. Higherups have favoured you all month, but now they ease up on the “performance” pedal. The weeks ahead feature friends, social joys, entertainment and optimism. You’ll be happy! A former friend, flirty person, light romance, or social circle could return. A former wish or goal could beckon again, too. But soon, huge new friendships loom also. Careful Sunday: appearances are deceptive. Chase money anyway, realistically, this eve through Tuesday morning. Errands, casual friends, communications and paperwork fill Wednesday/ Thursday. Home, relax, Friday eve, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A peaceful month ends Monday; a month of ambition, tests, status concerns and prestige relations begins. Start NO new projects or relationships before March 17. Meantime, this week will slow like a car; then next week into mid-March will bring former ambitions, career contacts, bosses and roles/duties to the fore. Some of these could be lucky – but anything new will not be. Act accordingly. Despite this temporary retracing, your career is entering a huge new zone for the decade ahead. You will finally “reach” your true calling. Your energy and effectiveness soar Sunday-Tuesday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Mysteries end; four weeks of understanding begin. Avoid starting new projects or relationships now to March 17. The month ahead holds far travel, legal affairs, higher education, publishing, love and cultural affairs. These are great if they come from the past (e.g., an old flame, or a trip across the ocean to revisit your old neighbourhood). But new ventures in these areas are likely to fail in the long run. (For instance, this would be a disastrous time to begin a lawsuit; it would “never end.”) Rest, lie low early week. Your energy and charm surge Wednesday on. Write someone. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks past brought open, honest relationships and opportunities. Monday begins a month that steers these “open” contacts into deeper, “hidden” zones. E.g., an attraction might become intimate; a business opportunity now demands commitment and funding. However, until March 17, DON’T start new ventures or relationships, especially in finances and lust. Instead, work with ongoing situations, or reprise opportunities from the past. (DON’T try to rewrite a text, score or film script.) Happiness visits (sort of) Sunday to Tuesday. Lie low midweek. You shine, Friday afternoon, Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A major slowdown looms, February 23 to March 17, but we can feel the drag even earlier. So avoid starting new projects or relationships all week. A former link is almost certain to appear – could be an ex, former lover, friend, business associate, etc. Either this person represents a viable path forward for you, or there is unfinished business between you that should be wrapped up/resolved. The entire month ahead features relationships above all else – and opportunities, “renewed” horizons, relocation potentials. In these, reject the brand new. Happiness, Wednesday/Thursday!

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new now to March 17, Libra. You’ll be busy enough with ongoing chores – and a possible big one returning from the past. (E.g., those porch stairs finally caved in; or I forgot that tax return.) The only new thing worth starting this week is a long-range intellectual application, Tuesday morning before 10:45 PST. (E.g., submitting a school or passport application, or buying travel tickets – all for events to occur after March 17. DO NOT begin a lawsuit, essay, novel, etc.) Sunday to Tuesday are mellow, loving. Be ambitious midweek. Friday eve, Saturday: social joy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before March 17, Scorpio – with the exception of a great investment, research project or intimate lure Tuesday morning. (Watch the “start nothing” period this day.) If someone new attracts you Tuesday morning, it can be loving and intimate very quickly. In addition, next week onward, an old flame might return – he/ she offers emotional buoyancy and sexual depth, but make sure the “original problem” doesn’t still exist. Careful Sunday, appearances deceive. Wednesday/Thursday are mellow, understanding: love approaches. Be ambitious Friday eve, Saturday afternoon. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The month ahead accents home, children, security, nutrition, real estate, and retirement. Though a slow-down and “backwardation” occurs in many small areas now to March 17, advising against new starts, the major themes of your life actually leap forward during the weeks ahead. An end is a beginning. Trust the feeling that your life is opening to big new horizons – it is, and the more you seek the company of others, the bigger those horizons. A former domestic or career role might return – that’s fine. Express love Tuesday morning. Good sex, finances and research Thursday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The weeks ahead bring many details, errands, light chores, communications, paperwork, travel and casual contacts. Be alert in these: double-check instructions, reports and words/ grammar. Avoid big new starts until March 17 onward. You’ll be busy, but the stakes are not big, so find that “relaxed busy” level. A former friend or acquaintance might return. Tackle chores Sunday to Tuesday – a Tuesday morning task can boost your career. (Start well before 10:30 a.m. PST.) Agreement and opposition occur midweek: true love’s possible. Sex, finances, secrets Friday eve, Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead feature money, but don’t start new money ventures – or any new projects – before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, or situations that return from the past. You’ll collect old debts and/or face paying bills you’d forgotten about. A former sensual link could return (next week onward). So could former clients and income sources. Buy NOTHING new before midMarch (except of course gas, groceries, etc.) – lemons abound. Romance is deceptive Sunday eve, irksome Monday, and sweet Tuesday morning. Tackle chores mid-week. Evaporating opportunities Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charm, and clout rise strongly over the few weeks ahead. I didn’t include “effective,” as partners, co-operators, opportunities and plans will tend to go backwards, perhaps due to indecision. So DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17 – stick with the ongoing, or reprise past situations. A former mate, and/or a former neighbourhood, could draw you. Take a pleasant walk down memory lane. Be domestic Sunday to Tuesday. Mid-week brings romance, creative urges, pleasure and a winning streak: you fascinate someone. Tackle jobs Friday eve, Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
