As co-ordinator of the Fraser Valley Rent Assistance Project, Jane Njogu loans money and dispenses financial advice to men and women facing eviction and, sometimes, homelessness.

Program aims to help stave off crisis for valley renters

hen you live paycheque-to-paycheque—as a recent survey suggests most Canadians do—a pink slip can easily forshadow an eviction notice and, sometimes, homelessness. But since last summer, one of the province’s only so-called “rent banks” have helped stave off crisis for renters across the Fraser Valley. The Fraser Valley Rent Assistance Project is one of only three rent banks in British Columbia. In the past year, it has loaned money to upwards of 200 people across the valley. That number includes 15 Chilliwack residents who have received a combined total of just under $11,798.

“We’re kind of a bridge: we build a bridge to stabilize you.” Jane Njogu The program is administered by the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) and funded by Coast Capital Savings, the United Way, the Government of Canada and community foundations across the Lower Mainland. Community groups make the first connections with clients, who are then passed on to the program’s co-ordinator Jane Njogu. It is Njogu who has become banker and advisor to those in desperate need of financial help. “It is very, very needed,” said Njogu of the program. “It’s preventing homelessness because people are just one paycheque

away from being homeless.” Njogu is adamant that the loans aren’t a handout. “We’re kind of a bridge: we build a bridge to stabilize you,” she told the Times. Njogu worked in banks for more than a decade and ran her own business. She later used those skills to provide financial literacy programs on behalf of the MCC and was a natural fit to oversee the rent bank. The financial literacy programs, she said, are key to many of the people helped by the rent bank because clients are often reluctant to downsize their homes after their income drops or disappears. Njogu says that it makes it easier for clients to accept their new reality when told by an outsider like herself. In other cases, Njogu

arents at Unsworth elementar y are relieved by the installation of a traffic signal at the intersection of Keith Wilson and Unsworth roads this week, but some say it shouldn’t have taken three years or required a $10,000 study by the city to see if it was needed. The light, which went into operation Wednesday, was first recommended in a report commissioned by the Chilliwack school district in 2008 as one way to address dangerous traffic congestion in and around the Unsworth parking lot.

“The traffic was so bad, people were letting kids off while they were in the logjam of traffic.” Jocelyn Holden “The parking lot was truly dangerous,” said Jocelyn Holden, then PAC president. “It was always a hot issue at PAC meetings because parents were frustrated. The traffic was so bad, people were letting kids off while they were in the logjam of traffic, and kids were darting in between cars to get into the school yard.” See LIGHT, Page 3

A new traffic light at Unsworth and Keith Wilson Roads became operational Wednesday, three years after the Unsworth elementary parent teacher advisory council started calling for a light at the intersection. LIGHT, from page 1 The school district followed their consultant’s recommendations about reconfiguring the school’s parking lot to increase traffic flow and safety, but one main concern—the Keith Wilson-Unsworth intersection 200 metres from the school—was beyond their purview. With limited sightlines for cars on Unsworth and heavy, often speeding, traffic on Keith Wilson, it was an accident waiting to happen, according to Holden. Parents at the school first drew the city’s attention when they took matters into their own hands as volunteer, amateur crossing guards in the fall of 2009 and began stopping traffic on Keith Wilson to let kids cross and cars get off Unsworth onto KeithWilson before and after school. A bylaw complaint from a disgruntled motorist prompted the city to shut the parents down a few months later, but their concerns couldn’t be ignored, so the city commissioned its own $10,000 report. When Holden questioned why a new study was needed, she said she was told no one at city hall was aware of the earlier School District No. 33 study. Even after she procured a copy from a retired Unsworth principal and gave it to city staff, however, the report was ignored. “It wasn’t commissioned by the city, so I guess they didn’t take any notice of it,” she said. The city’s study, conducted by Opus International Consulting early in 2010, found the intersection wouldn’t warrant a signal until 2015 based on vehicle and pedestrian traffic, but Holden took issue with some of those findings. During their study, 15 and 27 pedestri-

‘Bashing my head against a wall’ ans crossed Keith Wilson during morning and afternoon peak periods respectively, but Holden said school data indicated about 120 Unsworth students, or about a quarter of the school’s population, lived on the other side of KeithWilson. To Holden that meant parents who felt it was unsafe for their kids to walk to school were driving them, only adding to the traffic problems at the school. She also felt the limited sight lines for drivers trying to get from Unsworth onto KeithWilson comprised a legal liability for the city, since (according to her measurements) they were in clear violation of city bylaws. “Who’s at fault, the driver who makes a bad decision and pulls out because they can’t see or the city that doesn’t enforce the bylaw that makes seeing possible?” she asked. She and Unsworth PAC vice-chair Kim Pogue wrote their own report, something that took about 150 hours, and made their case at a meeting of the city’s transportation committee in June 2010. In September of 2010, Holden was invited by the city to sit in on more meetings about the Opus report, but by that time she was burnt out and felt parents had made their case clear in their report. “There was nothing more to talk about,” she said. “The thing is, they get paid to sit in meetings, and I was getting tired of it because I felt like I was bashing my head against a wall.” Parents were pleasantly surprised, therefore, when the city contacted them in April of this year and said the light would

go ahead within the year, with construction likely taking place over the summer. But more frustration was in store for Unsworth parents. When Holden went to the school in August, nothing was happening. It turned out the project was held up by land purchases the city had to make to widen the road. “We thought we’d be kept more in the information loop.We weren’t,” said Holden. While they say the city has dragged its feet through much of the process, parents at Unsworth are impressed by the scope of the work the city is now doing, including not only the new signal but a new sidewalk, curbs, gutters, landscaping and road widening. “This has sort of blown us away the amount of work that they have done on that intersection,” said Holden. Other parents at the school are happy Holden and Pogue will get to enjoy the changes for at least half a year, since both have their youngest children in Grade 6 and will be leaving the school after this year. “They have been on this for years, and they just wouldn’t let it go,” said Unsworth parent Joyce Harrison. “I don’t think it would have happened without them personally being involved.” For her part, Holden doesn’t think parents should have to work so hard just to keep their kids safe but she acknowledges the city also needs to hear clearly what the priorities of the community are. “That’s just the way the world works, if you’re loud enough,” she said.

plays the stern banker. “In some instances we’ve had to put conditions whereby we will not support until they downsize,” she said. “And they’ve had to do this and in the end, they’ve had to thank us because we give that reality: that you’re going to be stressed, you’re going to get sick trying to live a life you lived before, but now you can’t afford it.” To a l l ow s u c h p e o p l e to find cheaper housing, the rent bank may pay a cliEB IRST ent’s first First reported on m o n t h ’ s chilliwacktimes.com rent and damage deposit. Other times, it will provide money for renters to catch up on their rent or pay to reconnect utilities. Clients have up to 24 months to repay the bank, at which time the interest is returned. The program has provided a vital source of assistance to many people struggling with finding housing. But it’s also rewarding for Njogu. “There’s nothing so good like being able to meet people at a point of need and just being able to become that answer,” she told the Times. “It might be just a little help, but it’s better than nothing.” The Fraser Valley Rent Bank is one of only three in the province, alongside similar operations in Surrey and surrounding areas, and Prince George. The demonstration project ends in March of 2011, but Ron van Wyk of theMCC said he is confident that the program’s mandate will be extended. “From what we can see, it’s certainly addressing a need and we hope we can continue with this,” he said.

Stories that left an impact

10 - Charges dropped against teacher. In last year’s list, I referenced the case of Jason Epp, the Sardis elementary school teacher charged with sexual assaulting two students. After one year, dozens if not hundreds of children interviewed by investigators, and lives thrown into turmoil, charges were abruptly dropped against Epp in August. The end to the case left both the teacher’s supporters and the relatives of the alleged victims upset about how it was handled. 9 - Senior pot growers. In April, four men and two women between the ages of 50 and 71 were sentenced for their roles as workers at a huge Chilliwack marijuana grow operation busted in 2009. The sentencing hearing was revealing in that it showed how personal circumstance, medical problems and a little greed can push those with little or no criminal past into an illegal activity. Also of note: a 71-year-old pot worker said he was paid just $10 an hour to tend plants. 8 - Are cops underfunded? I didn’t cover this story, but I think it bears mentioning again. In February, a government report on police resources showed Chilliwack cops have the highest case load among 19 Lower Mainland municipalities, when funding for integrated teams is included. Like ongoing calls from the firefighters union for increased manpower, this issue comes down to just two things: city hall’s willingness to pay for more officers; and the public’s willingness to pay

be found.

Win, Lose or Ty more taxes. 7 - Lack of compassion Just days after it opened, a short-lived compassion club on Yale Road was shut down by police. One man was arrested, but has not yet been charged. The quick shuttering of the local dispensary was just one of several compassion club raids in British Columbia. It comes at the same time as the City of Chilliwack tries to crack down on medical marijuana grows. Meanwhile support for the complete legalization and regulation of pot has never been higher. 6 - Huge silver theft I n Fe b r u a r y, t h i e v e s stormed a Little Mountain home, stabbed the occupant and made off with threequarters of a million dollars in silver. In June, the victim said he would offer a $20,000 reward for the return of the silver and arrest of the thieves. The victim also answered one of the nagging questions for me: why store that much silver at home? It turns out the silver had been a great investment—up to the point at which it was stolen—but that he couldn’t find a bank to store it at or an insurance company to insure it. The silver has still not been found. 5 - Unsolved murders/disappearance This story is, in fact, a nonstory. The unrelated 2010 murders of Karver Morford and Deano Paus and the disappearance and likely killing of Michael Coutinho remain unsolved. Murder investigations are often drawn out, but as the days pass and leads grow colder, one can only wonder whether the killers will ever

3/4 - Drugs = crime This will be a joint submission featuring two unique court cases. Stefan Grenfal, a repeat convict, was sentenced last month for a grab-bag of property crimes. This is a man who has committed many crimes over the course of his life, but the impression he left on me after speaking in court was that of an intelligent, hard-working guy who is in a life-and-death battle with his addictions. Keep an eye out for his name in our paper: the judge ordered him to write a letter to the editor to apologize for his actions. On the flip side of the coin, Bradley Van Geel was spared jail after convincing a judge that he had turned his life around since the start of the year, when he robbed a convenience store, stole a pair of cars and asked officers to shoot him. The judge said Van Geel’s volunteerism proved that he really did want to overcome his addictions. 2 - Less crime Take the above stories as what they are: exceptions to a rule. Chilliwack is actually becoming safer. Not a single homicide was recorded in the city limits and our crime severity index, as compiled by Statistics Canada, dropped 13 per cent to land us 16th in B.C. 1 - Ashes returned Perhaps the story I will remember most from 2011 was that of a Chilliwack woman whose mother’s ashes were stolen—along with a trove of sporting equipment—from the family’s storage locker. Shannen was heartbroken and implored the thieves to return the ashes. Less than a week later, I got a call from a funeral home manager who said he had the ashes—they had been found by an RCMP officer 10 days earlier, but his contact information for Shannen was out of date. It was one of the highlights of my year to be able to call Shannen and let her know that her mother’s ashes had been recovered.

The Carey Point area on the Fraser River saw flooding during the 2011 freshet. A consultant’s report found it would cost $5.1 million to protect this whole area outside the dike system. in the area. The consultant came up with three plans ranging in price from $1.3 million to $5.1 million. The cheaper two options would include raising an access road and a dam on Orchard Slough. But both options would leave some p r o p e r t i e s t h re a t e n e d , including the Korthuises. The $5.1 million option, preferred by residents of the area, involves raising the access road but also involves bank protection that would

also cost the city between $100,000 and $150,000 for annual maintenance. Tara Friesen, the city’s manager of flood protection infrastructure, presented the plans to council and said that the provincial government was unlikely to help. “Funding is unlikely unless there is an imminent risk to the east dike or existing bank protection,” Friesen said. Funding will not support the protection farmland

outside the protected dike area. The staff report pointed out that funding for erosion and flood protection works at Carey Point is not currently in the budget. The city will now submit the report to Emergency Management B.C. to see if any of the options would be eligible for funding. In total in Chilliwack, there are 42 homes and eight industrial operations outside the city’s dike system.

This year’s spring freshet proved too much for a berm in the Carey Point area that failed, allowing river water to flood much of the area. About a dozen properties, including one right on the Fraser River owned by Klaas and Conny Korthuis, are in the jurisdictionally nebulous zone outside the city’s flood protection area. At the Dec. 20 meeting, city council received a report on three possible plans that would help protect some or all of the properties.

A political rhyme for 2011

’T

was the week before New Year’s and here at the Chilliwack Times, We’ve been writing about council, school board and crimes. Both Barry Penner and John Les were looked at in our journalism, And one can’t forget the Strahls. Can you say “nepotism?” ----The year it began, with Les picking his man, Kevin Falcon, he thought, will be the one with the plan. But things didn’t go quite that way in the end: “Hi Christy, it’s John here, are you still my friend?” ----Then Penner had a child. (Well, Daris did all the work.) His constituents “oohed” and “aahed” at baby’s smirk. But little did they know, how much Fintry would distract, Or that one little infant would have political impact. ----Barry stepped down as A-G and out of cabinet. Then to the shock of all who were proximate, Penner resigned from politics altogether. Politicos wondered, could this be a bellwether? ----Back to things federal, Chuck Strahl too stepped down, A distinguished career for the man from this town. So who would step up and fill

PAUL J. HENDERSON

SimplyA Musing those big shoes? Oh what a surprise! Junior just couldn’t lose. ----Some insider Tories cried “Foul!” “Dirty tricks!” Mark came out of nowhere, it seemed like a fix. He said he knew nothing of his father’s departure. About as believable as targets hit by blind archer. ----But Mark it would be, Chilliwackians made the call. His youth, inexperience, it would never stall, His rise as a Member, his launch to the Hill. Our new Parliamentary man, off to Ottawaville! ----In the fall, city voters were asked to go to the poll. Not many showed up, you could hear the eyes roll. The municipal matters made hardly a connection. Stop the presses, you say? Not another election. ----Mama Gaetz stepped up again, no one tempted to challenge.

To defeat Sharon for Mayor? As hard as rhyming with orange. At our fair city hall, she wears her Honour’s medallions. Is it the start of a career as long as Hazel McCallion’s? ----Twenty brave souls put their names forth for council. Some were suited, some less so, some angry, some docile. A realtor, a paramedic, and one into banking. Some retired, some incumbents, even one with nine offspring. ----Stam loves developers, even designs their houses. Huttema’s into chickens, not geese, duck or grouses. Attrill’s had a few jobs, her latest at TeksMed. McLean deals with those gone, you know, the dead. ----Those returning councillors were joined by Popove and Lum. The former a tire guy. The latter? Yarrow he’s from. The new council six, characters rarely impugned. What’s in store for this term? Who knows, but stay tuned. ----A new council, new MP and soon a new MLA. What a year 2011 was, never a dull day. To the future we look now, we’ll inquire and we’ll delve. Happy New Year to Chilliwack, and to all a good ’12!

hile the new traffic light at the intersection of Unsworth and Keith Wilson Roads looks and functions like your average tri-colour signal, it has another function: it also serves as a monument to a group of determined parents who proved that, with enough effort and skill, ordinary citizens have the ability to bend city policy. If it weren’t for the Unsworth elementary PAC, the light probably wouldn’t exist. But it does, despite a city study that suggested that it was not needed until 2015. The light that is now there is evidence of the Unsworth PAC’s ability to persuade city officials that their own free, volunteer-written report was right, and that the $10,000 study compiled by professional consultants was wrong. It also goes to show that it pays to raise a ruckus. The city would not have known that a stoplight was needed without hearing from Unsworth parents. The new light will have multiple benefits. It will not only funnel traffic more efficiently, but, more importantly, it will reduce the likelihood that a car will end up hitting and injuring a student. It also will hopefully allow more children to walk to school. Chilliwack’s sprawl places an emphasis on driving places: to the store; to work; and to school. And in a vicious circle, the large number of drivers prompts driver-focused engineering and a more driver-friendly city. Which just repeats the process again, all the while leading to more drivers and more traffic. Everybody wins, then, that we can make travel by foot or on bike easier and safer.

I have seen examples where some strata managers will come charging down the road, screaming like a wounded elephant and using foul language to make their point. The fact that their signage on the front gate is breaking the federal law does not register with them, even after being told. It is unfortunate here in Chilliwack that the election returning officers for these campaigns don’t seem to be aware of this law and if they do, they conveniently ignore it. It is the responsibility of the returning officers as well as the RCMP to advertise this law prior to an election. Again, why some strata managers think that they have a “God-given” right to restrict law-abiding candidates from entry mystifies me. It is long overdue that Chilliwack joins the rest of Canada in enforcing this federal law without having to lay charges against the perpetrators. Dick Harrington Chilliwack

Long history of potluck success Editor: Recently, the Chilliwack Family YMCA held its annual Seniors Potluck Luncheon, which has a long history of being a successful event, this year being no exception. We, the YMCA management and staff, feel we could not create a “sense of community” without the support of many in our community who often go unrecognized. We are referring to the CSS Culinary Arts program under the superb leadership of Terry McDougall. They roasted and prepared our five generously donated turkeys to enable us to serve 200 guests. Thank you Terry and students for all your hard work! We thank Steve Elliot who gave us a wonderful performance, bringing back many fond Elvis memories. To the dazzling Happy Tappers, led by Beryl Wilson,

Penner was an excellent MLA Editor: A big thank you to Mr. Barry Penner (MLA). We had some problems involving our property taxes, and the then Finance Minister, Mr. Colin Hansen, did nothing to correct an error we had made. We asked Mr. Penner to help us and he and his staff worked long and hard for us, and in November 2011 we got a letter saying, he had finally got through to the new and improved finance minister and he helped solve our problems. Thank you so much Mr. Penner. The Liberal government lost their best member in their party. Wish you the very best in your new venture. Mary Leiding Chilliwack

Editor: There is an election issue that has received no attention locally in the five years that I have lived in this area. The issue is one of the policy of strata councils, residences and apartment buildings to place “no trespassing” or “no admittance” signs at their front entrances. This is obviously meant to limit access to anyone who does not live in the complex. The only real problem with this is that the strata is breaking a federal law, Bill 81, in the process. Bill 81 was passed distinctly to address this issue. This federal law says clearly that no building manager or property manager can restrict access to political candidates or to their canvassers, so long as access is during daylight hours. There is a potential fine for anyone caught breaking this law. This law is for municipal and provincial campaigns, as well as federal. I fully realize that such strata councils are tired of seeing religious persons, or salesmen, or, even worse, potential thieves, entering the property. Such people often hassle the residents unnecessarily. Since many of the residents are elderly, this makes it more necessary to control access to outsiders. However, common sense should rule. No political candidate is going to hassle a potential voter to the point that the voter becomes “turned-off” on that candidate.

T

here will be at least one former New Democratic Party candidate and one sitting politician vying for the party’s nomination in the ChilliwackHope byelection in the new year. Another former NDP candidate will likely join the race and a third considered running but decided against the move. Lakhvinder Jhaj ran for the party in the riding of BoundarySimilkameen in the 2009 provincial election. The long-time Penticton

Change of plans for Jhaj

resident is newcomer to the Fraser Valley who considered a local run but decided against it for personal reasons. “I was at first but then I changed my mind,” Jhaj told the Times last week. “So many people are asking me to run, saying that I have a proven record; I’ve done well in the past.” In that 2009 election, Jhaj finished with 5,869 votes, just 812 behind BC Liberal John Slater.

Last week another former provincial candidate confirmed she would seek the nomination. Harrison Hot Springs resident Kathleen Stephany ran for the NDP in Langley in 2009, finishing behind incumbent Mary Polak. Stephany is a registered nurse, a licensed psychologist and teaches ethics to nursing students at Douglas College. The only other confirmed candidate right now is Dennis

Adamson, Area A director for the Fraser Valley Regional District. Former provincial and federal NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony was expected to announce her run for the nomination before Christmas but did not. As for Jhaj, she said she will back whomever the party chooses in Chilliwack-Hope. “I’ll be there no question,” she said. “Whoever the candidate is I’ll be working very hard.”

No one has come forward yet for the BC Liberals, but party insiders say they have a strong candidate in mind and an announcement will come in the new year. No date has been set for the byelection.

Putting the pieces together

The Chilliwack Chiefs have bonded as a team . . . and with their community BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

I

n late August, the brand new Chilliwack Chiefs were a mystery not only to the British Columbia Hockey League, but to head coach Harvey Smyl, who found himself managing a new team for the first time in more than a decade. Last year’s Quesnel Millionaires—the direct descendent of the Chiefs—won just 13 games, finished dead last in league scoring and won just two games on the road. Adding to the degree of difficulty was an overhaul of the BCHL’s playoff system that will see only four of eight teams from each conference advance to the postseason. But four months after the coach first met his players and halfway through their first season together, Smyl’s Chiefs have done about as well as anyone could have hoped. It only took Chilliwack two months to match Quesnel’s win total from last year. And at Christmas, the Chiefs sit third in the Interior Conference, five points ahead of the defending league champion Vernon Vipers and the also-much-improved Prince George Spruce Kings. “I’m pleased with the progression,” Smyl told the Times last week. “We jumped through a bunch of hurdles, we’ve worked through some issues and our team is just continuing to grow.”

the willingness to compete day in and day out.” Asked to single out some players who have exceeded expectations, Smyl pointed to his goaltending duo of Mitch Gillam and Bryton Udy. Gillam, a 19-year-old recruit who played at an American prep school last year, came with high expectations from those in the Chiefs organization. (Midway through training camp, one person said he stacked up well with the best Western Hockey League goaltenders.) Gillam hasn’t let anyone down, posted a solid .914 save percentage and 2.77 goals against average. While Udy’s numbers haven’t been quite as good, he has posted seven wins in 11 games and has gotten better as the season has progressed. See CHIEFS, Page 14

LIKE ALL GOOD THINGS, RECYCLE YOUR RIDE MUST COME TO AN END. RECYCLE YOUR RIDE IS ON ALL ACROSS CANADA — ONLY UNTIL JANUARY 3RD AND ONLY AT YOUR FORD STORE.

Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program is a great incentive for consumers looking to save on their next vehicle while responsibly recycling their old one. Since the program was first offered in 2009, Ford’s Recycle Your Ride program has retired more than 50,000 old vehicles. And now, in an effort to recycle even more, the program has been expanded to include 2005-model-year-or-older vehicles. So even more people can receive between $500 and $3000* in incentives towards purchasing or leasing our smartest, safest and most fuel-efficient Ford vehicles — like the Focus, Fusion and F-150, and even the award-winning Fiesta and Edge. Our goal is to replace as many older vehicles still on the road today with more fuel-efficient, lower-emission Ford cars, CUVs, SUVs and trucks. And you can help. If it’s time to recycle your ride, just visit any Ford Store across the country. But hurry, because Recycle Your Ride is only back for a limited time.

CHIEFS, from page 12 “Udy has really, really looked good the past month,” said Smyl. “The two have really solidified and made it easier for our club to take chances and risks and be a little more offensive.” Rearguard David Thompson also received praise from his coach. “He’s just settling in to become a nasty player to play against with all kinds of ability,” said Smyl. On offence, the top line of Derek Huisman, Malcolm Gould and David Bondra have carried the load, scoring a combined 48 goals (45 per cent of the Chiefs total). But Chilliwack has also got important contributions from 20-year-old Kit Sitterley, local boy Josh Hansen, overtime specialist Trevor Hills (who has scored three of his 11 goals in extra time), and checker Michael Spring. The Chilliwack Chiefs team that will return from their Christmas break to face the Prince George Spruce Kings Wednesday will be nearly identical to the one that started the year with the club, with just Chris Blessing playing elsewhere. Smyl traded Blessing in exchange for Jordan Ethier, a big power forward from Saskatchewan. But after just eight games and two assists, Ethier was sent back from whence he came. “We felt we needed to be bigger and stronger up front,” said Smyl. The Ethier move didn’t pan out, and while Smyl doesn’t discount further roster moves, he says he doesn’t want to mess with what’s working. “We will do deals that will help our hockey club . . . but at the same time we want to make sure that we do not tear apart the dressing room.”

Improve PP Smyl, though, says his team need to continue to improve upon its play if it wants to maintain its position in the Interior Conference. Merritt, in second place, has surprised many with its play. Smyl said the team is in many ways similar to the Chiefs and will continue to be a difficult opponent (The Chiefs play Merritt four more times). And Chilliwack will have to continue its hot play of late if it wants to hold off the fourth-place Vernon Vipers, whom Smyl believes are better than their record indicates. To do so, Smyl and his coaches will continue to emphasize the importance of responsible play in their own end. “The defensive part of the game will have to be at its best against the better clubs in the league.” Talking about Penticton and Vernon, Smyl said “for us to compete with those clubs, we’re going to need to be better defensively.” He would also like to see his power play improve, especially on the road, where it has converted on less than 15 per cent of the team’s chances. Before his team scattered last week to spend Christmas with their respective families, Smyl implored them to continue to work out and skate over the week-long break. He also told his players that, while they grew together as a team and posted some big victories in the first half, they’ll need to play even better over the final 29 games of the season. There is, after all, a lot of hockey still to be played.

BACK ALLEYS DON’T RECYCLE UNWANTED ELECTRONICS But we do. Here’s where you can recycle them safely and free of charge in Chilliwack:

Chilliwack Bottle Depot #2, 45934 Trethewey Avenue, Chilliwack (604) 792-9572

WHAT IS THE ELECTRONICS STEWARDSHIP ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (ESABC) PROGRAM? ESABC is a not-for-profit extended producer responsibility program set up by the producers and retailers of electronics in British Columbia to provide a province wide recycling system for unwanted electronics.

Sardis Bottle Depot 45635B Lark Road, Chilliwack (604) 858-9177

ISN’T IT IMPORTANT TO REUSE BEFORE RECYCLING? While the program is designed to manage unwanted electronic products that have exhausted their reuse potential, we strongly encourage users to first reuse their products. If you choose to donate to a charity, make sure you have backed up your data and wiped your drives clean prior to donation.

WHAT ARE THE ACCEPTABLE ELECTRONIC ITEMS INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM?

HOW ARE ELECTRONICS RECYCLED?

Effective July 1, 2010, the following items can be recycled free of charge at any Encorp Return-It Electronics™ Collection Site: display devices, desktop computers, portable computers, computer peripherals, computer scanners, printers and fax machines, non-cellular phones and answering machines, vehicle audio and video systems (aftermarket), home audio and video systems, and personal or portable audio and video systems.

Electronics collected for recycling are sent to approved primary recyclers in North America. They are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. Products are separated into their individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the materials reclaimed from unwanted electronics are used as raw materials in the manufacturing of new products.
