hilliwack city council candidates are, to varying degrees, out in the community shaking hands, knocking on doors, putting up signs, distributing flyers and attending all-candidates meetings. But in this digital age, having an online presence is critical to running any business, organization or election campaign. In a municipal election, there are those who place more importance on old-fashioned door-knocking as opposed to Tweets sent out. To that

end, candidate Dick Harrington said he had hand-delivered 10,000 flyers to different areas of Chilliwack before Halloween. Jamie Billingham, a local consultant specializing in social media, says it’s not whether you are online and utilizing social media but rather how you are doing so. “I think it’s important to point out that it’s not the presence or absence of any of the tech or social media tools that is really important,” she told the Times. “What’s important, in my view, is

that those who represent me, my needs, my family’s needs, in this community understand how critical it is to connect with constituents.” She says candidates need to be where constituents want them to be in a way that builds confidence in them as leaders. “It’s not the tools, it’s what they enable that matter[s]. Social media enables dialogue, discussion, open and transparent process, and crowd-sourced knowledge and opinions that can better inform government at all levels.”

Of the 20 candidates running for city council, the Times found seven with websites dedicated—at least in part—to their campaigns and just eight candidates who are using Twitter. (Gerry Goosen has an account but as of Monday had never Tweeted.) A number of candidates are using Facebook, some with dedicated campaign pages others with messages on personal pages. Six candidates—Sue Attrill, Chad Eros, Jason Lum, Mitchell Nosko, Ken Popove and Chuck Stam— have both websites and Twitter accounts. See SOCIAL MEDIA, Page 4

he City of Chilliwack’s new draft plan for the Eastern Hillsides includes fewer than one-third of the homes and residents first envisioned for the area in 1994. At Tuesday’s meeting, city council was to be presented with the draft plan, which has a projected build-out of 1,700 homes for up to 4,000 people, according to a press release issued by city hall Friday afternoon. The Eastern EB IRST Hillsides is in the First reported on southeast of the chilliwacktimes.com c i t y, c o m p r i s ing an approximately 1,340-hectare portion of the northern edge of the Cascade Mountains. The 1994 plan for the Eastern Hillsides envisioned up to 5,200 homes for between 13,500 and 17,000 people. But those higher numbers were seen to be not viable because of difficult terrain and the expense of infrastructure. Unrelated to the downgrading of projections, but still impossible to

Veterans march down Vedder Road during last year’s day of protest.

Vets marching again BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

I

n the year since hundreds of veterans marched in Chilliwack to demand better treatment and changes to the government’s compensation system, little has changed, according to Claude Latulippe. The clawbacks and compensation system is still a source of bitterness, says Latulippe, a retired Royal Canadian Air Forces Captain, who dismissessomechangestohowlump sums are paid out as “lip service.” “There was no improvement there,” he said. “Since last year, there hasn’t been much movement by our government to rectify the issues we’re addressing.” And so, on Saturday the veterans will again hit the streets and march to the local Member of Parliament’s (MP’s) office. There, they will find one thing has changed. Last year, then-Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Chuck Strahl took heat after he failed to appear at the protest. His seat in Parliament has since been taken by his son Mark, who has promised that he will be there Saturday to

“A lot of [veterans] have fallen through the cracks and that is something that we can’t let happen.”

Claude Latulippe address some of the concerns raised by veterans. Latulippe has met with Strahl and said the MP promised to research the issue and address veterans’ concerns. “What’s he going to say? I don’t know,” Latulippe told the Times, “But it’s important that he’s there.” Strahl, though, will face a tough crowd, and one that is knowledgeable and passionate about a very complex issue. Latulippe said the veterans want the government to: end deductions on the pensions of disabled veterans; end clawbacks to pensions once veterans reach the age of 65; and to reform the system by which veterans receive compensation for their injuries, both mental and physical. “A lot of [veterans] have fallen

through the cracks and that is something that we can’t let happen.” With Veterans Affairs undergoing millions of dollars of budgetary cuts, Latulippe said he felt little progress has been made since the Conservatives won a majority government earlier this year. “We dropped a few rungs on the ladder as far as priorities go,” he said. “The way that Veterans Affairs Canada has been working, they will maintain their jobs and they will keep on getting their bonuses, but the veterans will be treated like, ‘if there’s anything left, buddy, you’ll get it.’” Latulippe is also angry that, while the government fights a class action lawsuit brought against it by thousands of veterans, Veterans Affairs Canada has been running advertisements that prominently feature veterans. “There’s a political game being played,” he said. ‘The only thing we can do is make Mr. Public aware of some of the issues. “The bottom line is, something has to be done. We have to change the government’s thinking towards the veterans.”

he retirement of longtime Sardis secondary principal Bob Long in December will initiate major administrative changes at two Chilliwack high schools in the new year. Effective Jan. 1, Diego Testa, who has been the principal at G.W. Graham middle-secondary school since it opened, will take up Long’s post at Sardis. “Certainly they’re huge shoes to fill,” said Testa. “Bob’s an amazing educator and a very involved community member. He’s done some amazing things, and the school’s a great place. I’m looking forward to the challenge, but he’s a tough act to follow.” Testa came to Chilliwack with seven years of administrative experience from the Abbotsford district to become G.W.

I think we’ve done some amazing things here at this school and, starting something from scratch, you get attached to it.” Come Jan. 1, Testa will hand the reins of the school over to Rosedale traditional community school and Cheam elementary school principal Todd McLean, who Testa said will provide a “fresh set of eyes.” Besides G.W. Graham, McLean will also take over Testa’s current responsibility as principal of Sto:lo alternate school. The position McLean will vacate at Rosedale has yet to be filled, but parents at that school met with district officials last week to discuss the “skills, character and competencies” they would like to see in their new principal.

rebuilt Valleyhaven Retirement Community will provide better care for more patients, according to those present for Friday’s official opening of the care home. After more than a year of construction, the new Valleyhaven was completed in the spring at a cost of $16 million. With all but one of its 91 beds now filled, residents, the building’s owner and Chilliwack’s MLAs all say the new facility is a big improvement from the old Valleyhaven. “Not taking anything away from the old building—it served us well for a long time—but the last time I was in the building it was getting a little long in the tooth,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner. “I’m very pleased to be here today and see how much brighter and open the common areas are.” The previous building had been built by the City of Chilliwack in the 1960s. The new home has 26 more beds with suites and rooms allocated to three different “neighbourhoods,” each with its own kitchen dining area and activity space. “Valleyhaven was redesigned for a much more homelike atmosphere,” said Kevin Svoboda, who bought Valleyhaven in 2009 and oversaw construction. “It’s one thing to build a new facility but it’s another thing to make it a home.” The new facility also has a wellness room, a general store, a hair salon and a bistro. Fraser Health contracts 80 of the rooms, with the remaining 11 being privately funded. Calling the home “clean, comfortable and digni-

UPE Local 458 announced Friday that the 10 workers employed by the Cultus Lake Park Board have ratified a new three-year collective agreement. Included in the package are wage increases of two per cent in each of the three years. The new deal expires on Dec. 31, 2013. The agreement also includes increased compensation for first aid attendants and general improvements to the language including better protection on benefit coverage, according to a CUPE 458 press release. “[The local] is pleased to reach a deal that is in line with settlements achieved in neighbouring communities,” said CUPE 458 president Bryan Bickley. “We still have some ground to make up with regards to wages,

but our members recognize the current economic difficulties facing the park and hope to achieve these goals during future negotiations. We are looking forward to building on our relationship with the park board.” CUPE 458 represents 10 full-time inside and outside workers at Cultus Lake Park who provide public services in the park office including clerical, building inspection and bylaw enforcement.

News HILLSIDES, from page 1 ignore, is the Panorama Heights subdivision in the Marble Hill area that was deemed to be on a slow-moving 4,000-year-old landslide. In 2009, the city agreed to purchase the 42 homes for approximately $18 million, 80 per cent of their assessed value. “We have learned many thingsaboutsustainabledevelopment and best practices for community building, since the 1994 Eastern Hillsides Area Plan,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz in the press release. “New terms of reference and input from residents form the basis of our shared vision for the future of the Eastern Hillside neighbourhood.” The draft plan projecting just 4,000 people is even lower than what was being considered just eight months ago, but would provide a 30year supply for “a small, specific segment of the housing market,” according to a staff report. In February, the city held an open house to talk about the plan at which two scenarios were considered: an urban community of 12,500 people or a “niche market” with half that number.

Residents spoke up In 2000, a review on the development potential was undertaken and, based on environmental protection requirements and servicing costs, only 12 out of a potential 29 developable areas were identified. That decreased the anticipated population to approximately 6,900 people. Since then, some land in the lower, flatter slopes have been developed but concern about the clearing of land for such homes led the city to create hillside development guidelines in 2008. A tree management bylaw was also adopted in 2009. A public open house will be held in early December. An Official Community Plan amendment required to adopt the plan is anticipated in early 2012.

Progress – don’t you love it?

t took one year and 45 days to build the Empire State Building back in the early 1930s. That’s about half as long as it takes to put in a roundabout these days. So I guess it should come as no surprise that investigators expect it to take two years to finish laying charges in the Stanley Cup riot. After all, this isn’t your typical international money laundering operation spanning half a dozen countries and numerous financial institutions. We’re talking broken windows and stolen blue jeans. This is serious stuff. There was a Vancouver riot back in 1971; the Gastown Riot. Seventy-nine people were arrested and 38 of them were charged in a matter of days. Heads would have rolled if someone had dared suggest it was going to take two years to wrap up the investigation. But of course, these are different times. We now have surveillance cameras and facial recognition technology. Knowledge acquisition has never been easier. Entire libraries are available online. Documents, research reports, essays and complete manuscripts can be downloaded in seconds. Yet people are graduating from high school with poorer written communication skills than at anytime since edu-

JOHN MARTIN

Crime Matters cation became compulsory. When my mother passed away a while back and I was dealing with her property I disposed of the same oven that was used in the house I grew up in. It was in perfect working order and over 40 years old. That was seven years ago. I’ve had to replace my own stove twice since then. But of course, these are different times. We now have computers in our stoves. Opponents of the federal government’s tough on crime legislation argue there’s no need to reform the system because crime is down 17 per cent from a decade ago. That’s probably correct. It’s also up 130 per cent from where it was in 1962. This is not unlike the over-the-hill, punch-drunk prizefighter who is convinced he’s on the comeback trail because he only got knocked down six times in his last fight instead of the usual seven or eight. Not that long ago, a young man couldn’t wait to finish school and start a career so he

could move into his own place and tackle the world. Leaving the nest was a prerequisite to growing up and becoming independent. It’s now perfectly normal for 30-year-olds to live in their mom’s basement and put off adulthood indefinitely. Across the country, and indeed around the globe, we’re seeing spinoffs of the Occupy Wall Street protests. It used to be people who were not satisfied with their economic situation in life worked harder, got another job or upgraded their skills and education to make themselves more competitive. Now they sit in a park and blame the international financial community and global economic structure for their shortcomings and demand someone give them money. But of course, these are different times. We now realize we’re all victims of an oppressive state who need take no responsibility for our circumstances. I don’t know that we were any smarter 40 or 50 years ago. I somehow doubt it. But we sure did a better job of taking care of ourselves and getting things done. ◗ John Martin is a criminologist at the University of the Fraser Valley.

n a little more than two weeks, Chilliwack voters will elect seven people to sit as trustees for the Chilliwack School District. Meanwhile, 17 people will find themselves on the outside looking in. By Nov. 19, election day, those 17 people will have spent more than a month talking about the importance of education and their ability to improve the lot of Chilliwack’s students. They will have committed to attending regular meetings and setting aside large portions of their lives in the name of education. And yet, on Nov. 20, 17men and women will suddenly find themselves with time on their hands. Some, of course, are already active volunteers, but let us suggest how the others might putting their drive to educated to good use. The Chilliwack Learning Community Society needs volunteer tutors to work one-on-one with adult students to help improve reading, writing, math and computer skills. The number of jobs that one can obtain and keep without the ability to read, do simple arithmetic or use a computer is rapidly diminishing. Those without such skills face huge challenges finding and keeping jobs, and performing day-to-day tasks. They are also unable to pass down literacy skills to their children, who may find themselves in a similar situation. We would kindly suggest, then, that those school board candidates who are not elected take it upon themselves and volunteer as literacy tutors. Or they can lend their skills, drive, and specialized knowledge to any one of the numerous other education-related programs in Chilliwack. Unlike sitting on the school board, volunteering doesn’t pay. And you’re unlikely to get your name in the paper on a regular basis. But volunteer, and you’re likely to get back as much as you give. And, if you can help guide someone towards literacy, the gift you give will change someone’s life. And how many politicians can say that?

Respect the leash laws Editor: To everyone who utilizes the Rotary Trail along the Vedder River, kudos to you. It has got to be one of the most beautiful places on earth to go for a stroll, ride a horse, ride a bike, walk the dog or just sit and enjoy nature. To the few that choose to walk the dog off leash please be aware your dog may very well be the calmest and sweetest little thing but when you pass by another that is on the leash and your little sweetie comes rushing over, how do you know how the other dog is going to react? Even a friendly dog can appear to be aggressive to another when it is not controlled. For those who have walked the trail for years I ask that you also be aware that there are probably two to three times as many people using the trails today. Let’s all be respectful of each other and the law and leash (and clean up after) your dog. To those who still feel it is their right to walk without one—a great big Halloween BOOOO to you. S.Wyman Chilliwack

Atrocities here in the West, too Editor: It is interesting to hear the discussions coming out of the Commonwealth Summit in Perth, Aus., regarding human rights abuses from the western countries as if we are immune from such atrocities, when in fact we are as guilty as many other countries in this regard. In Canada alone we ter-

minate the lives of 95,000 to 100,000 babies a year. In this country we perform abortions up to 20 weeks gestation as a rule, only in dire circumstances is it done third trimester or full term. What is even harder to comprehend is that at near or full term it is legal to terminate the baby, but the minute it is born and you terminate it then it is called murder? I have never known anyone personally that has ever said to their child, I wish I had aborted you, because I find you are quite an inconvenience to me. Everyone I know loves their children through every phase of development and would never intentionally harm them so why would anyone do it before they are born? Maybe it is time to do a little personal soul searching in the west also? Bertrand Ouimet Chilliwack

Our healthcare system works Editor: I’d like to thank the healthcare workers of Chilliwack for all the hard work they do for clientele. Healthcare is very challenging and recently I had a large surgery. I was treated well, even if I was stuck in a fourbed room. Having worked and lived in the U.S., I had to pay thousands of dollars for healthcare. I know the hospital system is dealing with overcrowding issues. The only solution I see is users fees being implemented for nonurgent cases and for people who refuse to take care of themselves then expect to be taken care of at the cost of a child awaiting healthcare. I also believe integrating federal and provincial healthcare systems and empowering the provincial providers we use is the answer to the healthcare crisis we all face. Thank you once again to the healthcare workers who took care of me in my time of need. It really meant the world. Cynthia George Taha Chilliwack

Editor: Harrison Hot Springs candidates, if you want my vote, stop all this childish behaviour. When answering the candidates questions sent by the local newspaper keep it short and sweet. If you cannot win this election on your own merits do not try and win by disrespecting other candidates. If you have made a mistake and did not fill in your candidacy papers correctly admit it, say you made a mistake and were sloppy. We are all human but do not take us for fools by coming up with feeble, weak excuses. All questionnaires are ambiguous but the other candidates got it right, do not tell the residents that your business does not make money. Why is it still being advertised? Make sure your facts are correct when you hand out your candidate flyer. Have you checked with the village office on how much the Spirit Square cost? I know it was not $10 million . . . and I am not running for council. To the candidates who have kept out of the negativity of this election, thank you. I am looking for five individual candidates who show integrity, leadership and have the ability to sit down discuss and debate items that affect the village and arrive hopefully at a positive decision. I do not vote for teams which tend to follow the leader and have no individual viewpoint and will not argue for what

Editor: Re: Trustee won’t be bullied, Times, Oct. 27. Chair Doug McKay claims in the article of Oct. 27 that trustee Silvia Dyck’s comments were not fully accurate and that they don’t represent the opinions of the board. I was in attendance at the finance committee meeting that is being referred to and trustee Dyck’s comments are precisely what was discussed at that meeting. There are no inaccuracies in her statements. This was not an incamera meeting. We have rules surrounding those. We used to have partner groups sitting on this committee. In regard to representing the board, this is a perplexing statement because facts are facts and truth is truth. The chair represents the board at functions and in the signing of certain documents, however, does not speak for the board on matters of opinion, especially when the board was never consulted.

Common sense, not deprivation when it comes to diet BY SUSAN SEMENAK Postmedia News

F

or those trying to lose weight, all the sermonizing can be a turnoff.Who doesn’t already know that vending machine chocolate bars are bad, that whole grain is good? That fad diets don’t work and getting fit doesn’t come quick? There’s no magic formula for losing pounds and keeping them off, but there are strategies that work.The American Heart Association recently published the second edition of its bestseller No-Fad Diet (Clarkson Potter, $27.99), a no-nonsense bible for anyone looking to lose weight, eat healthier and move more. It’s a collection of advice culled from a review of current research in nutrition, weight management and behaviour modification.Much of the same advice is available from the Dietitians of Canada and the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, from Health Canada and Quebec’s health ministry: Exercise more and eat a healthy, balanced diet that is low in fat and includes a variety of food from each of the four groups. No-Fad Diet puts it all together in a way that is simple and straightforward.At its core is the concept of energy balance: To keep from gaining weight, you must balance the calories you eat (calories in) with the calories your body uses up (calories out).To lose weight, change the balance in favour of “calories out.” That’s it.No outlawed food combinations or powders,herbs, meal-replacement bars or pills.No three-week ab-building See DIET, Page 13

Plan ahead

Good planning,not will power, is the key to successful,sustained weight loss. Plan meals for the next few days to avoid“unconscious eating.”Shop with a detailed grocery list and don’t linger in the supermarket. Cook extra.Leftovers are a great way to avoid the fast food perils of the food court at lunchtime. Eat more soup.A container of homemade vitamin-packed soup in the fridge is also excellent“emergency food”for evenings when you’re ravenous but don’t have time to cook. Set reasonable weight loss goals.Begin by aiming to lose 10 per cent of your body weight. Losing one to two pounds a week is healthy and sustainable. Start with small steps.Make gradual,manageable changes.

Choose the right strategy for you

A“switch and swap”approach works for some people.Replace margarine or butter on toast with all-fruit spread or unsweetened apple sauce;or use fat-free

milk instead of whole milk. For others,especially those who eat out or travel a lot,the “75 per cent solution”is better. Continue to eat most of the things you like—just less of them.Before beginning each meal,mentally draw a line on the plate to portion out threequarters of what you normally eat.If you always have a muffin for breakfast,eat three-quarters of it.If you eat four slices of pizza at your kid’s hockey game,cut back to three.

Find more nutritious, lowercalorie alternatives

Get the most return from each

Move more

Strap on a pedometer.Recording every step will give you a realistic idea of just how active—or inactive—you really are.Wear the pedometer for one week.Add up the daily totals and divide by seven to find out your average number of daily steps.(A daily range of 2,000 to 4,000 steps is considered inactive;5,000 to 7,000 steps is considered moderately active; 10,000 or more steps is considered very active.)

calorie.Eat more vegetables and fruits,fibre-rich whole grains,fatfree and low-fat dairy products and fish and lean meat,as well as unsaturated fats and oils. Visualize your plate divided into fourths,with two sections for vegetables and fruits,one for grains and starches,and one for a protein. Eat slowly.It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register the signal from your stomach that it is full. Pre-empt restaurant regret. Eat something low in calories— an apple or a bowl of low-fat yogurt—before leaving for the restaurant if you are very hungry.

Be aware of your inner voice. Think about how the running dialogue inside your head encourages or excuses bad behaviour.As in:“I’ll have these french fries now,but just a salad for dinner,”or“It’s too icy/cold/ hot/humid/late/early to go out for a walk.” Practise saying“thanks,but no thanks”to colleagues who bring in baked goods or dinner-party hosts who offer yet another glass of wine. Learn to recognize true hunger.Before each bite of food,ask: “Am I so hungry that I would eat this even if it were something I didn’t like very much?” Be especially vigilant around people you love.Research shows that adults tend to eat more in the company of friends and relatives,especially if they are overweight. Don’t be hard on yourself.It

Have a low-calorie lunch twice a week.Cook a healthy dinner once a week.Every second day, replace ice cream with fresh fruit. Or go full throttle.Some behavioural experts say that starting with a strict regime,as opposed to cutting back just a few calories,helps the new habits become ingrained.Then you can ease back after two weeks.

takes about six weeks to form new habits.Be prepared for pitfalls and setbacks.Hitting a plateau is part of the process—the body’s way of readjusting to a reduced food supply.If you stick with it,you’ll start losing again. Keep a food diary.Know exactly what you eat and why.

Happy Halloween Name: The Pumpkin Position: Squash Height: 1’2” Weight: 5 pounds Hometown: Chilliwack, B.C.

The Pumpkin was carved by Chiefs centre Spencer Graboski, who tweeted a picture of it Monday morning in advance of Halloween festivities. The Pumpkin performs best in the fall but tends to disappear from sight come playoff time. Nevertheless, its locker-room leadership and after-dinner nutrition have proven invaluable.

T

he Chilliwack Chiefs discovered the cure for the common slump this weekend as they downed the two worst teams in the British Columbia Hockey League to end a five-game losing skid. It wasn’t easy to knock off the Trail Smoke Eaters and the Salmon Silverbacks, but Chilliwack took advantage of their opponents’ shortcomings to find their scoring touch and sort out their defensive zone play. The Chiefs downed the leagueworst Smoke Eaters 4-3 in overtime Friday at Prospera Centre thanks to a Trevor Hills goal just 39 seconds into the extra session. Derek Huisman opened the scoring on the power play in the first period, but the Smoke Eaters rallied in the second to take a 2-1 lead into the final 20 minutes. A pair of quick goals from Kit Sitterley and Jeremy Gossard quickly turned the tables and had the Chiefs headed for victory before Trail’s Erik Cooper tied the game with 3:24 left. But Hills roofed his shot from the slot early in overtime to put a halt to Chilliwack’s losing slide and send 1,704 fans home happy. “We started extremely slow and progressed as we went along,” said Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl. “We had to fight a little bit of adversity . . . and managed to get the two points.” The next night, the Chiefs put together what Smyl deemed to be one of his club’s best defensive outings of the still-young season en route to a 3-1 victory in Salmon Arm. The Silverbacks’ Devin Muller scored just 38 seconds into the game, but it was the only time Salmon Arm would find away past Chiefs starter Gillam. Chilliwack defenceman David Thompson tied the game midway through the opening period and Sitterley and Chris Blessing scored in

The Chiefs downed Trail 4-3 in overtime and then beat Salmon Arm 3-1 the following night. the second to give the Chiefs all the offence they would need. “Other than the first four or five minutes of the hockey game, we didn’t give them any real good chances,” said Smyl. “It was a real good road victory.” Hutchinson’s brief debut On Thursday, the Chiefs acquired defenceman Matthew Hutchinson from the Coquitlam Express in exchange for the always-mysterious “future considerations.” Hutchinson, a 20-year-old stayat-home defender, had played 89

games for Surrey, Coquitlam and Quesnel. He played his first game Friday for the Chiefs, but his debut was a short one. Just 13 minutes into the game, he dished out a hit and then became involved in a fight with Trail’s Clayton Chessa. Because another fight had already begun, both Chessa and Hutchinson were tossed from the game, although Smyl felt that Chessa may have deserved an extra penalty for being the aggressor on the play. Hutchinson sat out the following night’s tilt in Salmon Arm, a

move Smyl said had been planned as part of a rotation to get Stefan Gonzales back in the lineup after he sat Friday. Gillam the hot hand For the first time this season, goaltender Mitch Gillam played all of the Chiefs’ games over the weekend. The previous three weekends have seen Bryton Udy get one start, with Gillam getting the others. But Gillam leads the British Columbia Hockey League in save percentage and Smyl told the Times that he was just playing the hot hand.

New literacy tutors needed

R

ing to make important changes in their lives. Tutors work with them on areas of reading, writing, math, spoken English or computer skills. It is the learners who decide what they want to work on, and the tutors receive support to help the learners reach their goals. What are the qualities of a good tutor? Patience, a willingness to work towards another person’s goals, and a sense of humour. Tutors become known in the community as OWLs (Outreach Workers for Literacy) and are an integral part of a program called Community Access to Literacy and Learning (CALL). The Chilliwack Learning Community Society provides this program at no cost to the learner. Training for tutors is provided free of charge and includes a supervised practicum. This allows the tutor to put in place the skills and information learned through the training and allows the tutors to go into their placement feeling confident in their abilities. The training takes place over three sessions, followed by a practicum and a fourth session as follow-up. ◗ For more information contact CALL co-ordinator Marci Bulloch at 604-792-0025 ext. 2434, or marcib@chilliwacklearning.com.

ecruiting is underway for volunteers to train as literacy tutors. Upon completion of the free training, the tutors are matched up with adult learners. These learners come from all walks of life, and may be seeking a tutor for a variety of reasons. They may wish to improve their basic literacy skills, or they may want to be better equipped to help their children with their homework. Other learners are immigrants wanting to improve their conversation skills in English. Tutors are placed in upgrading classrooms, or may work with a small group of students, or may work individually with a learner on a weekly basis. The tutoring relationship continues for as long as both partners are willing. In some cases, learner and tutor have worked together for a few years and have developed a significant bond. “It can be similar to many other community outreach programs,” says program co-ordinator Marci Bulloch. “People will go into not realizing the close relationship they might develop with someone in the community that they would never have otherwise crossed paths with. It becomes a very valuable relationship.” Learners who come to the program are look-
