Spark of Life Shipbuilding contract means bright future for UFV trades programs

ith his voice tight with emotion and his parents looking on, 27-year-old Bradley Van Geel stood before a judge Thursday and apologized for a February crime spree that ended with him urging police to shoot him. “I know it doesn’t fix it, but I feel truly sorry for my actions,” said Van Geel. “I’m done with my old lifestyle, and old friends . . . It’s something I’ll have to live with for the rest of my life and will never be able to forget.” Earlier, the court heard that police were first called to investigate a “spousal altercation” at Van Geel’s Popkum area home. Van Geel wasn’t present when police arrived and found marijuana plants and firearms. Police later reported that a small, three-foot alligator was also found. The next day, Van Geel embarked on what Judge Russell MacKay described as a “crime spree.” Van Geel first entered a Young Road gas station, threw the attendant to the ground and made off with $80. He then proceeded to a nearby used car lot, from which he stole a vehicle. From there, he continued on to the parking lot of Safeway, where he tried to steal a truck. When confronted by the vehicle’s owner, he brandished a pair of scissors, hit her, and fled in the car he had stolen from the auto dealer. See VAN GEEL, Page 4

Levi Tebrink, a UFV welding student, practises his trade, one which has a brighter future thanks to the recent $8 billion shipbuilding contract announced last week.

he economic impact of a huge $8 billion contract awarded to Vancouver shipbuilders last week could trickle all the way up the Fraser Valley to Chilliwack, according to the University of the Fraser Valley’s dean of trades and technology. Harv McCullough, who oversees UFV’s trades programs, says the effects of the contract will reverberate through the entire Lower Mainland, and beyond. “There’s going to be a huge rippling effect for all kinds of businesses,” said McCullough. The contract will directly create some 4,000 jobs over eight years in British Columbia, including 3,200 in North Vancouver. Many of those will be for ship fabricators and welders. Each year, 80 students go through a 34-week welding courses at UFV’s Keith Wilson Road trades and technology campus. With a skilled labour shortage already forecast, McCullough said the contracts will only add to the demand for the university’s graduates—who learn both traditional welding skills and how to work with cutting edge technology including robotic welders. But with the university already turning away applicants for many of its trades programs, including its welding course, the question becomes whether government will contribute more funding to allow trade schools like UFV to offer more programs. “I’m not sure if this will have an impact in possibly freeing up some additional training spaces for a university like us, which is running at over capacity and probably going to have to address additional needs because of this large contract,” said McCullough. “This is not just a flash-in-the-pan contract. This is going to be over a number of years, 20 or so years. It could be almost half a person’s working career.” British Columbia, like most governments in Canada See UFV, Page 10

offered by the Fraser Valley Salmon Society and a local business. Despite a rash of publicity the week following Thanksgiving, the tire slashings didn’t completely come to an end. One American wrote to the Times to report that his tires had been slashed Oct. 17 at Kilby Provincial Park while he fished the Harrison River. “I have fished the Harrison River in the fall for 14 years, and spend substantial money in your area each fall,” the man wrote. “I feel I’m no longer welcome to your area and will no longer be travelling to fish in your area. I know this doesn’t represent the mostly good folks I’ve encountered but I don’t feel like I can afford to make trips with this threat hanging over U.S. citizens coming to your area.” He did report the incident to Agassiz RCMP.

Downtown hot topic at first all-candidates event BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Candidates Rob Stelmaschuk, Ron Wedel, Stewart McLean and Mitchell Nosko.

hilliwack city council candidates had their first chance to put forward their platforms and talk about the issues at a Chamber of Commerce all-candidates meeting Friday. After three-minute introductory statements, the 16 candidates in attendance were asked about job creation, development, the ALR, marijuana grow-ops and the future of downtown. It was the latter subject that—much as it did during the 2008 municipal election— garnered the most interest. Twelve of the 16 had something to say about downtown and the responses ranged from the practical to the creative. Second-time candidate Rob Stelmaschuk suggested the downtown core should be covered with a roof a la the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas. Candidates Chad Eros and Gerry Goosen suggested downtown needed a theme to create interest, such as the murals in the Vancouver Island community of Chemainus. Gord Kornelson said: “The downtown has been a squeaky wheel and needs to be given a dose of grease.” However, he added that change downtown needs to come from private money and corporate ventures rather than public bodies. Jason Lum had a simple fix: “You want to help downtown, go shop there.” Along those lines, Ron Wedel told the audience that his recent move to help downtown was to buy his clothes at Gord-Ray Men’s Wear on Wellington. Phill Bruce, who sees downtown through the lens of his life as a paramedic, said drugs, prostitution and crime are “the cold hard facts” of downtown. “People are not going downtown because they are scared to go downtown,” he said. Ron Browne didn’t disagree, but suggested the problem was systemic and that after the recent sweep of prostitutes downtown, he had talked to one resident who was still being “harassed” by sex-trade workers. Incumbents Stewart McLean and Ken Huttema, along with Dick Harrington, pointed out that change does not happen overnight and progress is being made.

“There is no magic bullet for the downtown,” Huttema said. “[I]t will improve over time.” On some topics such as marijuana growops and the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR), candidates swayed into areas out of municipal government control. In fairness, the question posed to candidates about the ALR and what the city should do to protect it, is something over which city council has little if any control. “As far as protecting agricultural land,” Huttema said. “That is a provincial matter.” A number of candidates, McLean, Lum and Harrington, were adamant the ALR should not be touched. Others, such as Eros, Stelmaschuk and Glassel, suggested the concept of the ALR needed to be revisited. On this question, one candidate told the Times after the meeting that the format was challenging because he felt compelled to speak up so that his voice could be heard, despite the fact that a topic might have been essentially irrelevant. The meeting held at the Coast Hotel was not well attended. At its peak, there might have been 100 people, but by 2:30 p.m. (the meeting began at 12:30 p.m.) that number was down to approximately 50.

Attendance Absent from the Friday meeting were incumbent councillor Chuck Stam, Ken Popove, Ian Carmichael and Roger Myers. Unique ideas proposed: Mitchell Nosko: Create a mentoring program at city hall to help people start small businesses. Rob Stelmaschuk: Put a roof over downtown a la The Fremont Experience in Las Vegas. Garth Glassen: Cap the population of Chilliwack at 200,000. Schedule The next meeting is Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at Promontory Heights elementary community school, 46200 Stoneview Dr. There is a meeting Nov. 10 from 7 to 9 p.m. at theYarrow Community Hall, 4670 Community St. The Chilliwack Library also hosts “Meet Your Candidates” nights Nov. 2 and Nov. 9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for council, school board and Cultus Lake Park Board.

Volunteer work impressed judge put his past behind him. “I have cut all my ties to my old friends, who weren’t friends to begin with,” he said. His lawyer bore letters testifying to volunteer work with the Chilliwack Giants minor football organization and at summer Party in the Park events and told MacKay that Van Geel was undergoing drug counselling.

“I would just like to be a hardworking family man and settle down with my fiancée and live a wholesome lifestyle,” saidVan Geel. “I will respect the courts decision, I will not let you down one bit.” Judge MacKay said that Van Geel’s volunteerism and alterations to his life demonstrated a real desire to change. “Mr. Van Geel has done what

many people say they are going to do,” said MacKay, “He has done more than merely express remorse . . . he has made sufficient changes in his life. “This is a case where actions speak louder than words,” added MacKay, noting that the 47 days Van Geel spent in jail before getting bail seemed to have had an impact on the young man.

Having pleaded guilty to theft under $5,000 and two counts of robbery, Van Geel was handed a suspended sentence, three years probation and an order to continue counselling for the drug problems that led to the spree. As he concluded proceedings, MacKay said he doesn’t expect to see Van Geel back in his courtroom unless it is to help other people overcome similar difficulties. “The only way you can keep what you’ve got,” MacKay told Van Geel, “is by giving it away.”

Driving is a serious business

I

remember vividly the first driving lesson I ever took—it wasn’t hard not to. The driving instructor, two other pimply-faced teenagers and I were bombing up the Niagara Escarpment en route to Dunnville when we spotted a car flipped over in the ditch. My buddy Dan King, who died tragically in a car accident a half dozen years ago, was behind the wheel. We pulled over on to the gravel shoulder, slammed the car into park and emptied the vehicle like it was a Chinese fire drill. The driving instructor was first into the ditch. He was waist deep in frigid water, the kind that takes your breath away, and the kind that makes you think you’ve made a mistake. I remember hearing muffled screams coming from the car. Two people were trapped inside—upside down. There was no time for panic to creep into my body; it hit like a Freightliner, tightened my throat and froze me to the ground. And of course, time stood still. My 16-year-old brain had no memory bank of experience from which to make a withdrawal of much needed “what-the-hell-doI-do-now” action. Paralyzed by fear, I sensed my teenage companions standing beside me, similarly gob smacked

KEN GOUDSWAARD

Post Script by the events unfolding down in the ditch. Our heroic driving instructor managed to free the occupants of the car. Wet and shivering, they scrambled up the bank, our outstretched arms at the ready to pull them up to safety. And then we were soon back in the car, headed for Dunnville and the completion of our first driving lesson. That day we learned quickly, and intimately, that driving is serious business. Back then, all my friends took their driving test in Dunnville. Everyone said it was the easiest place to pass. Not so for my best bud David “The Slothman” Henderson, who took the driver’s test three times before passing. He got stuck on a traffic island during the first attempt and hit a Christmas tree on the second. As the young kids are fond of saying—epic fail. But things were different back then. You only had to wait three months after your “beginner’s test” to go for your full licence.

And, once you had your licence, well, it was time to find all your buddies, pile them into the car and get the hell out of Dodge. I was 16 years and three months old when I had the legal right to pilot an ABSless, non-traction-controlled, airbagless hunk of gleaming metal at breakneck speed down endless miles of road. And soon, so will my oldest boy. Thursday, young Myles will take his Class 7 road test. With any luck, he’ll receive his novice—or N designation—as part of the graduated licensing program. He’ll still have many restrictions placed on his driving, but, he’ll be able to leave the house, jump in the car and neither his mother or I will be sitting beside him telling him to check his blind spot, watch for the crazy driver ahead or to slow down. Should I be worried? I know Myles has a level head and often makes the right decisions, but I’m only human and despite the life-long assault on my brain cells, I can still remember the things I used to do as a young man behind the wheel. I want him to enjoy the freedom that comes with being able to drive. But I also want him to respect the privilege . . . because driving is serious business.

nce in a while, a politician takes issue with his or her own party’s policies. Sometimes it’s motivated by personal ambition, sometimes by conscience. We believe that MLA Randy Hawes’s decision to blast his own Liberal government last week for failing developmentally disabled adults is a plea from the heart. As Hawes said, “there’s no issue that’s caused me more loss of sleep or more concern than those most vulnerable people.” He was speaking during a discussion about an NDP motion calling for a halt to further closures of group homes pending a review. Hawes rightly said that he would have preferred a top-to-bottom review of Community Living B.C. But the Liberals were having none of that—and no wonder. The Liberals were caught lying about the issue and, while Premier Christy Clark demoted Harry Bloy, the minister in charge of the agency (which falls under the Ministry of Social Development), one can assume they sure don’t want any behind-the-scenes dirty laundry aired now. Their solution to the problem of vulnerable people being mistreated and neglected by the government? Step one: get rid of the minister in charge, Bloy; step two: remove CLBC CEO Rich Mowles; step three: hope it all goes away. But a quiet end to this issue is, thankfully, unlikely at this point: last week, a second Liberal MLA spoke out, joining ranks with Hawes. Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen—a former solicitor general—said there’s been “an absence of the right kind of leadership.” Time will tell how many others will line up behind them, but the damage—from a political perspective—is done. We can only hope that their decision to speak out will force the premier’s hand and lead to a significant review and changes that will protect and support those most in need. After all, that would be putting “families first,” wouldn’t it?

ing him from doing so. As well, those who “proudly” had their pictures taken in front of burning police vehicles, etc., were not committing a criminal offence— stupidity surely, but only those actively involved in the commission can be charged (or should be) with any possibility of a conviction and we know how B.C. Crown counsel prefer “sure” conviction outcomes before going to trial. As for digital profiling, defence lawyers, can be anticipated to challenge the veracity of this procedure, which will result in further delays and expenses. This is out of hand. The 40 should be dealt with as they cannot be overlooked and avoid

further waste of public funds and allow those businesses involved their day in civil court to recoup their losses and put an end to this matter. The unelected premier of this province will surely do another about face and attempt another photo-op and make hay about saving public funds for the good of the economy. She has now announced the contribution of thousands of taxpayer dollars for a Grey Cup party—an event enjoyed annually without it.

Editor: I find it difficult to understand how the public apparently accepts the tremendous amount of public funds being spent for the investigation and laying of criminal charges in the Vancouver Stanley Cup riot. I see no questioning of same from any quarter. Concerns such as: 700 to 800 expected to be charged via digital profiling in the U.S. which is said will take up to two years. With the current backlog of cases in B.C. criminal courts unrelated to the riot and many cases being thrown out including very serious ones due to delays, this alone is absurd. Crown counsel announced that they are now ready to proceed with 40 charges within the next two weeks. I suspect that these are the 40 people who came forth initially to turn themselves into the police and should have been dealt with months ago. The CEO of London Drugs expressed his frustration of the delays, which have prevented him from proceeding to deal with their alleged loss of $1 million by taking those identified damaging and looting to civil court as criminal court takes priority, prevent-

Where are all the women? BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

I

n the 2008 municipal election, Chilliwack elected a female mayor, and women finished second, third and fourth in city councillor votes. With Mayor Sharon Gaetz in charge, and Couns. Pat Clark, Diane Janzen and Sue Attrill on the floor, Chilliwack was bucking the provincial and national trend. In the 2005 election, half of council was also female with Couns. Dorothy Kostrzewa, Gaetz and Clark. But this time around, things will be different as just two women out of 20 put their names forward to run for city council, a fact that Gaetz said was disappointing. Attrill is the only female councillor running for re-election and realtor Brenda Currie is the only female among the 16 challenging the incumbents. Currie made mention of the loss of Clark on council and the need for female municipal politicians in a press release announcing her candidacy. “We are . . . losing an incredibly dedicated woman in the retirement of Pat Clark, and I believe that council needs strong, business-

minded women, like myself, to run and try to follow in her capable footsteps,” she said. And while three women won seats in 2008, just one other of the 13 losing candidates was a woman, Darlene Van Rooy. The issue of women in local government has been addressed by the United Nations and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). The former defines 30 per cent as the minimal percentage of women required for government to reflect women’s concerns. Across the country, women represent 16 per cent of mayors and 25 per cent of councillors. Out of a total of 23,821 elected officials, 5,734 (or 24 per cent) are women, according to 2006 statistics. In British Columbia, the 30 per cent has been reached as 31 per cent of municipal politicians are women. Six years ago FCM created the unwieldy-named Standing Committee onIncreasingWomen’sParticipationinMunicipal Government, which has tried to encourage more female participation. One action was a campaign called the “Getting to 30% Project.” Of course, while there are just two women running for council, if both win, Chilliwack will again have more than the 30 per cent. And with the acclamation of Gaetz the city once again has a female mayor.

ounties raided a downtown home last week that was believed to be a “crack shack.” Two men and two women were arrested at the home—in the 45000 block of Princess Avenue—and $1,800 worth of what is believed to be heroin and cocaine was seized. The four people arrested were later released on a promise to appear in court at a later date to face charges of drug possession. “Crack shacks were recognized as a problem in the community and placed as a very high priority in the three year Strategic Plan,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “The Crime Reduction Unit

is aggressively working to eradicate this vice in our community and this is a good example of that hard work.”

UFV, from page 1

Special funds are required

and around the world, is operating on a tight budget and UFV, like other government-dependent entities, has seen little new money in recent years. While he is uncertain of the future, McCullough anticipates that the new contract may lead to some targeted funding opportunities. “I’m going to guess that there probably will be special-purpose funds that will be put in place,” he said. “As a university we need to be posed to apply for that funding as it comes along.” The demand for programs—both from students and would-be employers—is also expected to increase as more and more baby boomers head for retirement. “In the next few years, there’s going to be a real skill shortage, without considering this huge impact of this contract. So

Couple caught in stolen vehicle A Surrey couple was arrested Friday in an Aitken Road parking lot after being caught in what police determined to be a stolen vehicle. The 26-year-old man and 41-year-old woman were wanted on several warrants throughout the Lower Mainland and now face new possession of stolen property charges. “Our Crime Reduction Unit has placed a very high priority on property crime,” said Wolbeck.

I think that’s the next thing we need to start thinking about: how we’re going to meet the demands here?” With that in mind, UFV’s trades program now offers a trades management stream for its business administration degree and has introduced a new graphic design diploma program. McCullough also explained that the university itself can adjust, in a limited way, to increasing demands for certain programs by cutting back in other, less in-demand areas. “There’s going to be a lot of reposturing and rethinking,” he said.

ncumbent Harr ison Hot Springs mayor Ken Becotte will be allowed to stay in the village election race, according to a Chilliwack judge. A petition challenging Becotte’s candidacy, along with that of two council candidates, was dismissed in Chilliwack court Friday. The legal challenge begun by fellow council candidate Zoltan Kiss was based on incomplete financial disclosure statements filed by Becotte, David Harris and Sonya Reyerse-Peters. When r unning for municipal office, candidates for munic i p a l o f f i c e a re re q u i re d t o disclose the name of companies that are in business in the municipality from which the candidate derives income, according to the province’s Financial Disclosure Act. In Becotte’s financial disclosure statement filed by 4 p.m. on Oct. 14, he neglected to state that he

ding to the registry of companies,” Kiss said. Kiss also challenged Sonya Reyerse-Peters’s candidacy because she did not disclose the fact that she is part-owner of a bed and breakfast in Harrison Hot Springs. Chief election officer Janice Fulton notified all three candidates of their missing information after the Oct. 14 deadline, and amendments were added to the statements with notes on either Oct. 17 or 18. But Judge Roy Dickey declined to disqualify any of the three as candidates, attributing “their actions to sloppiness rather than deliberate deceit,” Kiss told the Times via email. “In my opinion, all of the other candidates did comply accurately, completely, and on time. I challenged the only three candidates that had obvious omissions. I believe I made the right decision challenging those candidates and nomination documents. However, I must respect the court’s decision.” Before the court hearing, Becotte had called the petition “frivolous” and said he didn’t “find it very amusing or very responsible.”

Island gives up zero points BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

t least the Chilliwack Chiefs don’t have to visit Vancouver Island again until next fall. The Chiefs boarded the ferry from Nanaimo Sunday night without a single point from their three-game weekend trip to the island—the team’s only such visit this season. It was a frustrating weekend for head coach Harvey Smyl, who saw his team find new ways to lose in each game. “It seemed to be a different issue each game that caused us problems,” Smyl told the Times Monday morning. “I didn’t think we were able to fight through a little bit of adversity.” Despite a 50-save performance from starting netminder Mitch Gillam, the Chiefs fell 3-2 to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs Friday evening. Alberni Valley and Chilliwack swapped goals in the first period, before a shorthanded marker from Josh Hansen early in the second period put the Chiefs ahead. But the Bulldogs poured pucks towards the net and Justin Morello tied the game with four minutes left in the period. Chilliwack then ran into penalty trouble and Alberni Valley capitalized on a two-man advantage to take a 3-2 lead. That was it for scoring, as the Chiefs were unable to capitalize on their own power plays in the third— including one for the last 1:50 seconds of the game. Smyl was unhappy with his team’s ability to finish in front of the net. “The fact that we weren’t able to execute on offensive opportunities—and very good opportunities, especially in the third late in the game—cost us.” On Saturday, Chilliwack faced the Victoria Grizzlies and for 30 minutes, things seemed to be going swimmingly. For the first four minutes of the game, the two teams couldn’t help but score. After Victoria opened

the scoring 45 seconds into the game, Jeremy Gossard replied for Chilliwack 37 seconds later. Victoria retook the lead 67 seconds after that on a power play. But 50 seconds after that goal, Chiefs forward Mike Berry restored parity. After four goals in the opening 3:19, the game simmered down, at least briefly. With goals from Kit Sitterley, Malcolm Gould (shorthanded) and David Bondra (on the power play), the Chiefs opened up a commanding 5-2 lead by the halfway mark of the game. Then the wheels fell off the Chiefs’ bus. Victoria scored twice in a little more than a minute in the latter half

Smyl wasn’t ready to put the blame for the loss on the shoulders of starter Bryton Udy, despite his allowing five goals on 21 shots. “I didn’t think they were totally his own fault,” said Smyl. “Our defensive play was horrendous in our own zone.” By Sunday, the defensive problems were replaced by an impotent offence and power play as the Chiefs fell 2-0 to the Nanaimo Clippers. The Chiefs went 0-for-9 with the man advantage and spoiled another solid goaltending perfor-

mance from Gillam. “We didn’t generate enough chances on our power play,” said Smyl. “Had we been able to get one from our power play opportunities, I think we would have been able to generate more offence.” The Chiefs are now winless since beating the Vernon Vipers six games ago. On the positive side, Smyl said the team’s shortcomings over the past week are largely fixable, although the power play in particular will take considerable work. “We’re going to go back to basics,” said Smyl. “We need to be better next weekend.”

Bronze for UFV golfers

A

fourth-place performance from Chilliwack’s Aaron Pauls led his University of the Fraser Valley squad to their second straight CCAA medal over the weekend at the 2011 CCAA national golf championships in Charlottetown, PEI. The Cascades finished third in the tournament, four strokes behind second place Holland College. Last year, UFV claimed a silver medal. Despite rain wiping out the tournament’s second day, Humber College was still able to run away with victory, eventually winning by 22 strokes. Pauls—UFV ’s highestranked golfer—finished fourth overall in the individual standings. After a first-round 71 had him just three strokes off the pace, Pauls shot a 78 in the second round, dropping him into a tie for fourth. The Cascades have now earned a golf medal in four of the past five national championships.

Hayes races to twin victories Nine-year-old Chilliwack motorcyclist Jake Hayes won both races in his age group at a recent regional event in Calgary. Hayes raced to victory in both of his two races for youth aged seven to 10 and placed second in an intermediate race against a field comprised mostly of older teens. Hayes’ father Norm said the experience at the track should also help prepare for next year’s national race in Calgary.
