School sports a question mark Teachers vote could end some seasons

hopes to open constituency offices in Chilliwack and Hope. Over at the Coast Hotel, the BC Liberals were licking their wounds and passing the blame to the Conservatives.

hilliwack teachers are withdrawing from all extracurricular activities as part of a provincewide action plan by teachers to oppose back-to-work legislation imposed on them in March. B.C. teachers voted on the plan last week, and 73 per cent were in favour of the action. The results were announced Friday morning, but it’s still unclear how the decision will affect extracurricular activities in Chilliwack. In school sports, for example, G.W. Graham athletic director Jake Mouritzen said the spring programs now running at his school (girls soccer, rugby and spring football training) will continue. “None of those things will be affected,” he said. Chilliwack secondary athletic director, Joe Mauro, however, said just the opposite about sports at his school. “It’ll be affected one way or another. I mean, this whole province will be affected one way or another.” He said the impact will also be felt beyond sports. “Any time schools go away for field trips or band outings or competition, they rent vans, they rent hotels,” he said. “It should have a dramatic impact on the whole system, not just the school system, but the economy.”

ven before Gwen O’Mahony and the NDP had officially won Thursday’s provincial byelection in Chilliwack-Hope, the Conservatives were making excuses and the governing BC Liberals were handing out blame. O’Mahony garnered 5,823 votes (41.55 per cent), with BC Liberal Laurie Throness coming in second

Chilliwack-Hope has its first NDP MLA as Gwen O’Mahony benefits from Liberal, Conservative split

with 4,501 votes (32.12 per cent), and BC Conservative John Martin finishing third with 3,548 votes (25.32 per cent). Libertarian Lewis Clarke Dahlby received 141 votes. “I’m completely honoured to be voted in as the MLA for the people of this area,” O’Mahony said at

Bravo Restaurant Thursday after the victory. “I’ll enjoy the evening and then I know I’ll be hard at work Monday.” O’Mahony said the key to her success in the May 2013 general election will be, in part, the hiring of some key staff. She said she

The people want change and they made a decision to go in that direction.” Political scientist Norman Ruff said the results show the NDP are the favourites for the May 2013 provincewide general election. “That’s what the polls have suggested,” said Ruff.“There’s nothing to contradict the message that the next election is the NDP’s to lose.” – with files from Tyler Olsen

Cops seek bike flasher

DFO rules irk farmers L

ocal and federal politicians met last week in the Fraser Valley to discuss fish habitat rules that some farmers say limit their ability to maintain their land. Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl hosted the roundtable discussion, which featured MPs Randy Kamp and Michelle Rempel, parliamentary secretaries for the fisheries and environment ministries, respectively. Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs mayors were also present, as were other local officials. Strahl said the meeting was important to show Kamp and Rempel the problems he says are caused by fisheries rules that govern the maintenance of ditches and protect species at risk, like the Salish sucker and Nooksack dace. He said the City of Chilliwack once received approval SCHOOL, from page 1 Whether it will be enough to force the government to reverse Bill 22—the controversial law that ordered a six-month cooling-off period in the teachers’ contract dispute—is less certain. “I can say to you, ‘Of course it’ll have an impact,’ but unless the government changes, it’s had no impact,” said Mauro. Asked whether pulling volunteer services was the best way to take action against Bill 22, Mauro said teachers were out of other choices. “I’ve been through five contracts now,” he said. “Nothing’s ever worked, and this is the only thing that we have

Rules in place to protect the Salish sucker are under scrutiny. to clear half a drainage ditch, but was refused permission to clear the other half. He also pointed to Agassiz, which Strahl said has a ditch maintenance budget of $250,000, four-fifths of which is allocated to receiving approvals to clear local ditches. “It starts to become very frustrating for these people just trying to keep their land dry,” Strahl told the Times. “We only have so much farmland and if you don’t drain it, you can’t farm it and can’t do anything else with it.” The ministry of fisheries and oceans (DFO) announced that its fish habitat policy is under review. Strahl said the government wants to take a “common sense” approach to environmental protection and species at risk.

The Salish sucker is an endangered freshwater fish found in watercourses all over Chilliwack. Farmers and municipalities have expressed concern that the practice of ditch clearing, which destroys the fish’s habitat, may come under fire. There is also uncertainty surrounding what, exactly, constitutes a watercourse, especially as water levels rise and fall with the seasons. Strahl said his government is not gutting fishing rules but rather making them more efficient. “No one is talking about eliminating environmental protection,” he said. Instead, Strahl said the government aims to make the process more efficient and to eliminate redundancies.”

hilliwack Mounties are searching for a man who exposed himself to two young children playing in their backyard Sunday. Police say the girls were in their fenced yard, which backs onto the trail along Hope Slough behind Berkeley Avenue, when a man approached and pulled down his pants.

The girls fled immediately and police were quickly called. But despite the assistance of a police dog, Mounties were unable to find the man. “This is a disturbing incident that we want parents to be aware of,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “The little girls did the right thing in running

away from the man and telling an adult immediately.” The man was described as being over 40 years old, with grey hair and a grey moustache. He wore grey shorts and an orange hat and was riding a blue and black bicycle. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the RCMP at 604-792-4611.

Visibility of house numbers a safety issue in emergency BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

I

n an emergency, you need your would-be rescuers to be able to find you. But too often, police officers find themselves in the dark when it comes to locating the address of a person in need. For Const. Kate Link, who just joined the RCMP, the situation is distressing, especially at night. “We’d get a call and I’d

be looking for an address and what would happen is I would literally, sometimes, be driving up and down the street” looking for the address in question, she said. “Lots of people don’t have [their addresses] up.” Those addresses that are displayed are often hard to see in the dark. “One lady had her name written on a box in black marker on her doorstep, which is impossible to see

from the street. Lots of people, their house will be white and they’ll get gold numbers up, which you can’t see at night.” Link soon found that the problem wasn’t unique to new police officers. “Ev e r y o n e c o m p l a i n s about it,” said Link. “Probably one of our number-one irritants is trying to find a house.” Ne w m e m b e r s o f t h e See ADDRESS, Page 5

‘Nothing’s ever worked’ not tried yet.” He said he would be meeting with CSS coaches and administration Monday to discuss what will happen next with sports at the school. A similar meeting will take place at Sardis secondary, where athletic director Julie Elliott said it was unclear whether or not tennis, soccer, rugby and golf would continue with community coaches and administrators on the sidelines. B.C. School Sports, the independent body that governs highschoolsports,meanwhile, said programs will continue for 35,000 student-athletes

because it was unthinkable to cancel play midway through the season, executive director Sue Keenan said. Besides sports, other activities that could be affected by the teachers’ withdrawal of extracurricular services include theatre productions, musical performances and graduation ceremonies. “There is no disagreement that these activities enhance the educational experiences for students,” said Midzain. “However, the fundamental purpose and goals of a good educational system are at risk and can not be sacrificed for the ‘extras.’”

Housing project wins award

hilliwack’s Olympic Legacy Affordable Housing project on School Street earned two prestigious awards from the Modular Building Institute (MBI) last month. The building won its Langley-based manufacturer, Britco, first place for the best commercial housing project over 10,000 square feet and a judge’s choice award for the best modular project overall, beating out entries from South America, Poland and all over the North America. “We are very proud that our partnership with both VANOC and BC Housing resulted in a sustainable social housing legacy that is having an impact far beyond 2010,” said Britco president Mike Ridley, accepting the awards at the MBI awards in Orlando, Fla. last month. The Village, as the building is known, was the result of a partnership between

the provincial government, the city of Chilliwack and the Chilliwack Community Society.

◗ Opinion

Good deeds go untold A s the SUV streaked north toward Wells Gray Provincial Park, I panicked. My wallet, stocked with my credit card, ID and a bachelor party’s worth of cash, was missing. It certainly wasn’t in the back pocket of my short-shorts, the party-mandated uniform for the planned whitewater rafting trip. As I mentally retraced my steps, it became obvious that the wallet had been left in a bathroom stall at Tim Hortons, now an hour behind us. I phoned the restaurant (do you call Tim Hortons a restaurant?), but to no avail. The wallet was gone. I had just about given up hope when my cell phone—which I had not left behind—buzzed. On the other end of the line was a Kamloops RCMP officer, who told me that a local homeless man had found the wallet and turned it in, cash and all. I was stunned. There was $160 in cash in that wallet. And apparently it was all still there. I would have been happy just to get my credit card and driver’s licence back. (The homeless man had asked for a reward, but the Mountie wasn’t authorized to give one out. And he didn’t have contact info for the man.) I was reminded of last August’s wallet miracle after talking to

TYLER OLSEN

Win,Lose orTy Peter Tallio and Bea Silver, from whose house $25,000 worth of First Nations masks and gold and silver jewelry had been stolen in February. In March, a man paid $600 for three of those carvings. Soon after, he learned they were stolen. Like the homeless guy, he too did the right thing, despite a financial incentive to do otherwise. “It’s really good to know that people have good hearts and have the mind to do the right thing,” Tallio said. “It seems so unusual. . . . But I guess the stories that don’t get told are people like him.” Which is true. News stories about thefts and robberies and assaults get so embedded in our heads that we forget that most people are good. In March, a Victoria teen lost her wallet after stopping at McDonalds. It was later turned in to a TD bank, along with a $20 bill and a note saying “surprise.” And in 2009, the Toronto Star

left 20 wallets around the city filled with $43.77 and various personal effects including a baby picture and handwritten love note. Fifteen were returned within a couple weeks, all but one with the cash. Our politicians are good people too. Failed MLA candidate John Martin’s speech Thursday hailed the impeccable character of both Liberal Laurie Throness and NDP Gwen O’Mahony. It was a graceful speech, one that we think is frequently missing among politicians—partly because such notes of grace are rarely reported in the din of election news. But our elected officials aren’t nearly as blackhearted as many otherwise reasonable people think. By global standards, and as a group, they certainly aren’t corrupt—an accusation that sullies democracy when used casually. (According to the 2011 Corruption Perceptions Index, Canada was the 10th least corrupt country on the planet. The United States was 24th.) Sure we could all behave better. But maybe if we realized that the person beside us was neither dangerous nor dishonest, we could enjoy the most prosperous time in human history a little more.

n her third try at elected office, Gwen O’Mahony’s dogged persistence finally paid off last Thursday as voters chose her as the new MLA for Chilliwack-Hope. She deserves congratulation for her victory in what may have been the most hotly contested, and unpredictable, provincial or federal election in Chilliwack’s recent history. Usually, it’s pretty obvious which candidate Chilliwack voters will choose. It was nice, then, to see people heading to the voting box with a sense that their vote would actually make a difference. At least for a year or so. In 13 months, voters in both Chilliwack ridings will head to the polls to pick a provincial government. In Chilliwack-Hope, O’Mahony will have to reproduce this year’s victory. Whether she is able to do so will likely depend on the twinned fortunes of the BC Conservatives and BC Liberals. Which brings us to vote-splitting. It bears keeping in mind that both the left and the right fall victim to votes split among multiple parties. (Stephen Harper’s Conservatives govern with a majority despite receiving less than 40 per cent of the popular vote.) The BC Liberals will heap blame upon John Cummins, but they will have to deal with the fact that they are largely to blame for the rise of the BC Conservatives. If the HST doesn’t exist, neither does a legitimate BC Conservative party. Whether they can rebuild their coalition remains to be seen. But their defeat in Chilliwack-Hope should be a sign that their brand is in tatters in even the safest of seats.

ALC story not quite right

Editor: Re: “Tycrop plan arouses suspicion” Times, April 19. I’m writing in order to correct the author on one or two important dates. The owner of property across the street from the parcel slated for extraction for the purpose of industrial development, saw the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) application sign at 6 am on April 6 (the Easter long weekend), not on March 30, as the article states. This date is important, as it indicates a desire by those responsible for posting the sign to put a little daylight between the application and the availability of both city hall and provincial government staff. A long weekend is always the best time to fly under the radar and the fact this date was chosen is a red flag to those who object to the proposed misuse of this land. The second date is when John Les toured Tycrop with the Premier and Liberal candidate, Laurie Throness. This did not take place on April 4 but on Feb. 16 (see Times, Feb. 21, “Sure feels like an election”). This date is also important, as it falls about two weeks prior to John Les’s address in the Legislature, stating that Tycrop had “great expansion plans” and that it was already engaged in the manufacture of equipment used in fracking for natural gas. This attempt to develop property held in the ALR is one all residents of this area, rich in arable land, should be aware of. The land is not being removed for the sake of enhancing the agricultural resources of this region, but for the sake of industrial expansion; something ostensibly not permitted on land in the ALR. The manufacture of components for fracturing rock to extract natural gas does not fall under the rubric of agriculture by any stretch of the imagination. This endeavour by John Les’s own admission is what Tycrop is now engaged in. While it’s true this company was once known for manufacturing products dedicated to the pursuit of agriculture, that is no longer the case. They are in the process of expansion and the land is being extracted to the end of enhancing Tycrop’s ability to manufacture components used in the practice of fracking for natural gas. I very much appreciate that local media has taken an

interest in this story, as the Agricultural Land Reserve is a cornerstone of not only our local economy, but of future food security and greenspace for this province and its people. However, I’m sure you will agree that in consideration of the people involved in this affair, it is crucial that dates be scrupulously consistent. This is a serious matter and only accuracy in relating the timeline of events will serve a satisfactory conclusion. Jennifer Woodroff Chilliwack

A big ‘boo-hoo’ to BC Liberals Editor: Chilliwack MLA John Les blames the BC Conservatives for the NDP win in ChilliwackHope. “Boo hoo!” Maybe he should blame himself and his party. Maybe he and his party should have listened to British Columbians, instead of dictating and fighting against their wishes, i.e. the HST and carbon taxes. The BC Liberals no more have a divine right to govern than did the Socreds, the federal Progressive Conservatives or Liberals. If Christy Clark wants to re-brand her party as the “free enterprise coalition” she will need to pay attention to the conservatives in this supposed “coalition.” You cannot sell carbon taxes to rural voters who have no transit options. You cannot behave like the typical, “weknow-what-is-best-for-you” elitist party of the Left-Liberals, and then expect populist support. Perhaps Christy Clark should learn from her counterpart in Alberta, a real conservative populist party leader, Danielle Smith of the Wildrose Party. With mayors of the province’s two largest cities calling on Smith to denounce two of her candidates who allegedly made

controversial politicallyincorrect statements, Smith said she refuses to throw anyone “under the bus.” The “crazies” as the establishment types refer to them, like it or not, represent the core of the movement. Stephen Harper and his Reform members would never have become government, if they didn’t transmogrify themselves into the respectable Conservatives. But Christy Clark is no Stephen Harper. Deep down, she is a Liberal. Harper is not, never was. She is no Danielle Smith either, that is why she will never be able to successfully lead a “free enterprise coalition,” her heart is not in it, and she has more in common with federal New Democrats and Liberals. So John Les can look for a scapegoat in the BC Conservatives, John Cummins, a former federal Reform and Conservative MP, who fought against native-only fisheries, and John Martin, the only candidate who was against carbon taxes this side of metro Vancouver, but we can all hear the band playing, and the Titanic is going down!

Skills draw attention

Big U.S. schools take a look at local soccer phenom Huitema BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

W

ith a division-leading 15 goals in just 16 games, Chilliwack soccer phenom Brody Huitema has drawn plenty of attention in his first year with the Vancouver Whitecaps U16 residency program. And his on-field prowess may soon translate to off-field success. After more than 70 universities expressed interest, Huitema has verbally committed to play soccer for one of the most prestigious universities in the United States. “The plan right now is to go to Stanford, hopefully,” Huitema, who is still in Grade 11, told the Times. It is the first full-ride schol-

Bob Frid, Vancouver Whitecaps FC

Chilliwack’s Brody Huitema has verbally agreed to accept a scholarship to play soccer for Stanford University. arship the school has ever offered to a male soccer player. Huitema said the plan is to play and study business management or business law at the school, while training with the Whitecaps in the summer and maintaining his homegrown status. After finishing a business degree at the San Francisco-area school, Huitmea would hope to then return to play for the

Whitecaps. He said attending Stanford has been a goal of his since he was 10 years old. “I’ve always known that, from an academic standpoint, having a degree from Stanford makes it a lot easier to get jobs in the area that you’re looking for,” said Huitema, who visited the school over spring break and met with the program’s coaches.

“Their girl’s team is number one in the nation and they’re trying to work on their guys, team. So I get that overall vibe from them that they’re working towards [becoming] a top-level school not only for academics but also soccer.” For Huitema, the commitment to Stanford caps a terrific debut season with the Whitecaps program, which sees the affable 16-year-old living and training in Burnaby alongside some of the best young soccer players in Western Canada. “It’s been amazing,” he said, noting that the team competes against 80-odd squads around the United States. “We’re the only team in Canada, so you get a lot of experiences with travel. You get to see a lot of the U.S. “ We get a lot of game experience against top-level players in America.” Hu i t e m a o p e n e d t h e season in style by scoring a hat-trick in just his second game and has scored at a goal-a-game pace ever since, putting him amongst the top scorers in the huge league. Meanwhile, he’s been See HUITEMA, Page 15

Sports HUITEMA, from page 13 brushing shoulders with members of the Whitecaps MLS squad like the team’s keeper Joe Cannon. “You see them on TV and in the first-team games at B.C. Place, [but] you get a different feeling from what you see on the field to what you see in person,” he said. “You actually get to know what their personalities are like.” And those players have left him with a desire to return to the city once his college days are over. “I just get the vibe that Vancouver’s a really nice place to play,” he said. “They really enjoy themselves and I enjoy myself with the staff I know right now.’

Success with U16 Whitecaps earns teenager a full ride at Stanford Watching fellow residency players make the transition to the pro team has shown Huitema that, even if he still has a ways to go, he is on the right path. “I’ve definitely seen what it can be like,” he said. Whitecaps director of soccer development Dan Lenarduzzi said Huitema has attracted plenty of attention from scouts. “We’re really excited about Brody’s development. He’s really a prototypical forward; he’s big and strong,” said Lenarduzzi. “He’s

a perfect example of a player with a ton of potential.” He said Huitema has made considerable progress in the past year. “A lot of people are looking at him because it’s not often that you get a big, strong scorer who’s scoring goals,” he said. “What we hope is that it’s opened up a lot of doors for Brody. But in the end we hope that Brody will be a big contributor to the Whitecaps Football Club in the future.”

“The Best Fish & Chips this side of England” Authenticity is what sets Victory Fish and Chips apart, according to owner Cynthia Thompson. And she should know. After all, she was born in an English fish and chip shop—literally. It was just after the Second World War and her parents were living and working in the shop in Portsmouth. Needless to say, she and husband Alan, a Yorkshireman, grew up eating hearty English fare. “We’ve always cooked English food,” says Cynthia. A former construction contractor who spent five years as a Royal Air Force chef, Alan had always wanted to open a restaurant. He realized that dream when he and his wife took over a coffee shop on Vedder Road 10 years ago. It didn’t take long for the couple to realize where their real strengths lay. “I said,‘We’re both English. We both know how to cook English food. Why don’t we change it to an English restaurant.’ And the rest, basically, is just history,” says Cynthia.

The shop, which relocated to Hocking Avenue in 2009, has since offered homestyle English comfort food, like fish and chips and 13 different kinds of meat pies. Decked out in British souvenirs and mementos, the restaurant evokes an oldworld feel. “It’s an English type of pub without being a pub,” says Cynthia. Service also comes with a personal touch that soon turns first-time customers into regulars. Cynthia says she knows what most of her customers want even before they order it, whether it be the shop’s signature shepherd’s pie or its light and crispy beer-battered cod, haddock, halibut or salmon. Cooking the fish is an art, according to Cynthia, one that the restaurant has long perfected. A recent customer, visiting for the first time, agreed, she said. “He said it was the best fish and chips he’d had since he was in England during the war.”
