t 7:45 a.m., on the morning of Sept. 9, 2009, a loud alarm rang through the trees that ringed the small farm at 7630 Nixon Rd. Up the driveway, past a white quonset hut and inside a two-storey farmhouse, 61-year-old Darryl Francis Ness looked at a video screen. This wasn’t the first time the alarm for the property’s front gate had been triggered. Over the five-anda-half months Ness had lived in the farmhouse, a bear, coyotes and birds had all set the alarm ringing. But when Ness looked at the monitor today, he didn’t see an animal. Instead, he watched as two men clad in black and wearing black balaclavas used bolt cutters to breach the gate. He watched and he waited. After one minute, maybe two, the phone beside the monitor rang. The man on the other end of the line asked Ness what was wrong. Ness explained the situation and hung up. He never called police. If he had, it wouldn’t have helped. Smell first alerted police Last week, more than two years after the RCMP’s Emergency Response Team raided the Nixon See GROW OP, Page 6

$4 million mistake in the proposed 2012-13 school district budget has obscured a $2.3 million drop in teachers’ salary costs projected for next year. The document, presented to the school board for approval Tuesday by secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice, contained what looked like an anticipated $4 million decrease in support staff salaries next year. Carradice explained to the Times Wednesday that that decrease was actually a “misclassification.” “Support staff salaries were included in the EB IRST wrong columns and this has been First reported on fixed,” she wrote to the Times in an email. T h a t s h i f t , h ow e v e r, t h e n revealed a projected $2.3 million decrease for teachers’ salaries next year, and Carradice later confirmed there would be a significant reduction in average teacher salary and benefits costs. “Given that we have almost 700 teachers, that explains the $2.3 million difference,” she wrote. At Tuesday’s meeting, however, no one on the board raised any questions about the dramatic $4 million decrease projected for support staff salaries, and no mention was made of an anticipated $2.3 million decrease in teachers’ salaries.

New campus officially open T

he University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) celebrated the latest phase in its development on May 11 by opening its new $45 million Chilliwack campus at the Canada Education Park. The 150,000-square-foot facility, which is made up of a combination of new construction and renovated structures, will house most of the programs and services previously located at the Chilliwack Yale Road campus. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the new campus on Friday at which community and funding partners were acknowledged. “I’m honoured and delighted to be opening the second major building on our new campus at the Canada Education Park,” UFV president Mark Evered said. “This is the fulfillment of the dreams of our predecessors and colleagues at UFV and our many supporters in the Chilliwack region.” Advanced Education Minister Naomi Yamamoto attended the opening ceremony and congratulated the university on its latest development. “The University of the FraserValley is an important member of this community,” she said. “Now that the latest phase of the new campus is open, students who choose to study here can feel good knowing they are able to access quality training and obtain in-demand

The new campus is the home of the new faculty of health sciences, which includes nursing, dental, health care assistant, along with

the addition of the kinesiology and physical education programs. UFV will also offer courses in many other programs, including two years of general arts and one of sciences, and offerings in social services, business, criminal justice and early childhood education, among others. The agriculture program is slated to move to a separate renovated building on the new campus this summer. While theatre courses will be offered in several locations, UFV’s performance theatre will remain on the Yale Road campus for the near future.

esidents of Carey Point are still concerned about the coming freshet, but at least they have won the berm-building race against Mother Nature. With ongoing warm weather and a huge snowpack in the Fraser Basin, the threat of high water flowing past Chilliwack is real. Replacing a 15-year-old berm that collapsed last year was a priority for owners of the 17 properties in the Carey Point area outside the city’s dike system. On Saturday, residents completed the onekilometre berm, a project paid for with $50,000 of their own money and $25,000 each from the City of Chilliwack and the provincial government. Completion of the berm depended on the city finishing its $110,000 check dam on the Orchard Slough. “The city finished off on Friday and then we finished tying it in on Saturday,” said Will Davis, president of the Carey Point Improvement Society. “Now it’s a matter of waiting and hoping that it works.” Snowpack levels in the Fraser River basin remain well above normal, according to the BC River Forecast Centre, a branch of the Ministry of the Environment. Persistent high snow packs in the Upper Fraser (152 per cent) and Nechako (148 per cent) means there is an “exceptional seasonal flood risk” in those regions. Those two areas, along with the Lower Fraser Valley and Thompson, affect the freshet in the Fraser River as it runs past Chilliwack. As of May 1, the snowpack in the Fraser basin was at 129 per cent of normal, down just two per cent from April 1. “With the onset of the snow melt season, the province has entered in to the period of time when freshet flooding can occur,” according to the May 1 report released by BC River Forecast Centre on May 8. Larger river systems such as the Fraser tend to peak in mid-May and into June or even July. The flood threat is always determined by weather: extended hot weather and/or wet weather will increase the risk. The River Forecast Centre’s May 15 snow bulletin is expected to be released May 22. According to a University of B.C. (UBC) expert, salvage logging of beetle-killed lodgepole pine forests in the B.C. Interior has significantly increased the risk of flooding and sediment discharge. The Fraser Basin Council warns on its website that the “greatest vulnerability to flood risk” is in the floodplain of the lower Fraser River, where major floods occurred in 1894 and 1948.




HHS byelection won by Buckley BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


arrison Hot Springs voters settled a municipal election dispute between two candidates by choosing someone completely different in Saturday’s byelection. John Buckley won the byelection with 178 votes, just ahead of former mayor and perennial candidate John Allen, who received 146 votes. Richard Shelley finished third with 66 votes. Shelley was the winner of the fourth seat on village council in the Nov. 19, 2011, election, a result that was overturned because his work as a paid on-call firefighter made him a municipal employee, according to the courts. A judge ordered the byelection in February in response to a petition filed by fellow candidate Andrew Baziuk, who finished fifth in the fall election. This time, Baziuk finished sixth with 27 votes. Instead of requesting a leave of absence from the




f i re d e p a r t m e n t t o r u n again when the byelection was called, Shelley signed a statement that confirmed he would receive no pay for his role with the fire department. This wasn’t good enough for a number of other candidates. One of them, Leslie Ghezesan, filed a petition against Shelley’s candidacy, but it was rejected by a judge in court on April 17. Ghezesan finished last out of nine candidates for the final seat on village council with three votes. Of the estimated 1,179 voters in the village, 512 ballots (43 per cent) were cast. Buckley joins Mayor Leo Facio and Couns. Allan Jackson, Sonja Reyerse and Zoltan Kiss.

he City of Chilliwack’s vision for how many people will eventually live in the Eastern Hillsides has gone from as high as 17,000 in 1994 to 4,000 last year to 6,400 now. Ongoing consultation with developers since the draft plan for the area was released in the fall has led the city to bump up the long-term build-out projection to 2,800 homes, or 6,400 people. That’s up from the November 2011 draft plan’s projected 1,700 homes, or 4,000 people, and is a return to scenarios considered back in 2000. “We are confident the revised plan addresses infrastructure, parkland, trails and a realistic amount of development for the Eastern Hillsides,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said in a press release issued Monday. “It contains everything needed to ensure a livable community.” The Eastern Hillsides is in the southeast of the city, comprising an approximately 1,340-hectare portion of the northern edge of the Cascade Mountains. At the May 15 meeting,

city council was scheduled to hear the revised plan with the recommendation it be referred to the Fraser Valley Regional District, School District 33, First Nations and Ministry of Environment for further consultation. 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 expense of infrastructure. After hearing from developers over the last few months, the draft plan was changed to look like something closer to what was proposed 12 years ago. In 2000, a review on the development potential was undertaken and, based on environmental protection requirements and servicing costs, 12 out of a potential 29 developable areas were identified. At that time the anticipated population was to be approximately 6,900 people. After further consultation this spring, city hall anticipates the plan to be presented to council for introduction and first reading of the Official Community Plan amendment bylaw on June 5.

Tax cheat gets 4.5 years BY KEITH FRASER The Province


Chilliwack man who avoided paying more than $200,000 in income taxes and counselled hundreds of others to do the same has been sentenced to 4½ years in prison. Russell Anthony Porisky’s partner, Elaine Gould, who played a more minor role in the scam, received a conditional sentence. The couple were convicted in January of operating a school called Paradigm Education, which counselled its students to be tax cheats. Porisky, 51, a father of four, was found guilty of income-tax evasion, failing to collect goods and services taxes and counselling to commit fraud. Gould, 52, a mother of three, was convicted only of income-tax evasion. The prosecution argued that the fraudulent counselling of 800 students resulted in more than $11 million in tax evasion, but B.C. Supreme Court Justice Elliott Myers said that was only a rough estimate, which he couldn’t accept. The judge, however, agreed that the sum was substantial as was the gain to Porisky, who along with Gould, was self-represented at trial. Porisky told the judge he hadn’t paid any taxes because he believed in a scheme—discredited by the courts—under which a citizen can avoid paying taxes if they declare themselves to be “natural persons.” Porisky claimed that the “nucleus” of his theory is that all Canadians have the “natural and constitutional right” to pursue a livelihood with no intent to profit, and that the amounts they receive in exchange for what those nonprofit endeavours provide are not required to be reported.

Porisky claimed to be confused by Canada’s tax laws, but the judge rejected his arguments. “He went out of his way to build a tortured and baseless argument in support of his moral and political belief that individuals can opt out of the income-tax system,” he said. “He acted on that misguided belief by opting out himself and urging others to do the same.” Court heard that a total of 547 students paid a percentage of their income to Paradigm and 255 students paid the school a fixed rate, rather than a percentage. Funds generated by Paradigm were deposited into four bank accounts, two of them in the joint names of Porisky and Gould. Porisky failed to pay a total of $274,000 in income tax and GST, while Gould avoided paying $27,000. Porisky received 18 months in jail for the income-tax and GST evasion and another three years for the fraudulent counselling of the students, the terms to be served consecutively. Porisky, who must also pay a $274,000 fine, had little reaction as he sat in the prisoner’s dock. Gould got a six-month conditional sentence and a fine of $27,000. “I have no job,” she told the judge. “How am I going to pay the fine?” The judge told her that she had a year to pay the penalty. “If you can’t do it, you’ll have to come before me to explain why you can’t and tell me what efforts you’ve made to do it. . . . You should make what efforts to pay what you can.” The couple kissed before Porisky was taken into custody by sheriffs. Several supporters sitting in the public gallery behind Porisky waved at him as he was led away.

This grow-op raided in 2009 had upwards of 11,000 plants, the largest ever in Chilliwack history. GROW OP, from page 1 Road property, Ness sat in a Chilliwack court room trying to explain why he never dialed 9-1-1; how he had come to live rent-free on the property; and how he could not have smelled the stench emanating from that quonset hut, beneath which Mounties found the largest, most sophisticated grow operation in Chilliwack history. Amazed at the complexity of the grow operation Five days before the million-dollar grow operation was raided, RCMP Const. Chad Mufford parked his police cruiser at the bottom of Nixon Road and walked up the gravel surface. He walked until he reached a point where power lines disappear into the trees and head towards the property. There, he recorded a faint scent of marijuana. Four days later he returned, again walking the road and again detected a strong odour of pot. A search warrant was obtained that day and the next morning, police stormed the property. They had no idea what they would encounter. “When we executed the search warrant, we didn’t know we would find 10,000 marijuana plants in an underground bunker,” Mufford told the court Thursday. But they did. RCMP Cpl. Kurt Bosnell, testifying as an expert witness for the Crown, told the court that of the more than 100 grow operations he had investigated, “This one’s the most complex one I’ve ever come across.” Inside that quonset hut, a lockable door led to a small room, inside of which a scissor lift allowed one to descend below ground level. Enclosed within the “purpose-built bunker,” 378 430-watt hydroponic lights illuminated a field of between 10,000 and 11,000 pot plants. The plants had a week or two until they were ready to be harvested. At that point, they would produce about 312 pounds of fresh marijuana, which could be sold for between $1,000 and $2,500 a pound. The latter number is the typi-

Going since 2003 cal export price of pot, Bosnell told the court. Each harvest, then, could produce between $312,000 and $780,000 of revenue. With the plants taking between six and eight weeks to grow, the operation could produce six harvests a year, for annual revenue of between $3 million and $5 million a year. Crown counsel Michael LeDressay later told the court that the grow-op had likely been in operation since 2003. Bosnell said the lights and the wiring would have been installed by a professional; the whole operation was powered by a primary hydro bypassed that siphoned electricity directly from a nearby powerline and was routed through several BC Hydro-style transformers. Air circulated within the light units to cool them and extend their lives. Each of the 378 units would have cost around $250. Ness was ‘very polite and quiet’ Only one person—Ness—was on the property when Mounties raided it on that September morning. When Mufford spoke to the portly pensioner, he said there was nothing threatening about a man he described as “very polite and quiet.” Ness told Mufford about his recent hernia operation and about medication inside the house, some of which was for his dog. “He wasn’t an intimidating, tattooed man,” he told the court. “There were some things that I don’t think he wanted to answer, but he was nice.” But however nice he may have been, Ness had just been found at a multi-million industrial-scale drug operation. He was arrested and, later, charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, and production of a controlled substance. Last week, he stood trial for his alleged crimes. " The second half of this two-part story will appear in Thursday’s Times.

◗ Opinion

A message worth repeating


n May 2, conservatives across the country celebrated the one year anniversary of the election of a “strong, stable, national, majority, Conservative government.” Those who followed the 2011 campaign closely will know that this line was repeated each and every day of the campaign by the Prime Minister and all Conservative candidates, including myself. Since that election, I have met with many constituents and have toured many local businesses. One such example of a local business success story is Britco, which is building thousands of temporary housing units for workers flocking to oil sands and natural gas developments in northern British Columbia and Alberta. Locally, they employ 200 workers in highly skilled, well paying jobs. I met with their executive vicepresident, Chris Gardner, and he shared with me the story of the company, including the fact that they have been able to add 77 new jobs in British Columbia in the last year. The most striking part of our conversation revolved around the company’s reliance on our natural resource sector in northern B.C. and Alberta. When


Be Our Guest the oil and gas sector does well, so do they, so do their workers, and so does the local economy. Our government has recently announced plans to engage in regulatory reform that we call our “Responsible Resource Development” strategy. Our plan will allow Canada to reap the benefits of a surging demand for our abundant natural resources, especially in the rapidly expanding Asia-Pacific economies, while ensuring resource development is environmentally sustainable. We want to cut red tape and unnecessary duplication of the review processes, while at the same time ensuring tough environmental standards. If we don’t find a way to do that, both our environment and our economy will suffer. Canada is an emerging energy superpower, and how we choose to respond to that reality will shape the future for many

generations to come. We need to ensure that we develop the natural resources we have been blessed with in an environmentally, and economically, sustainable way. In 2010, there were over 760,000 workers in Canada’s natural resource sectors. In the next ten years, there are over $500 billion in new projects set to come online. The royalties from our natural resource industries pump billions of dollars each year into government coffers to pay for things like our health care and education systems. Without those jobs, those projects, and those resource royalties, Canada’s economy would certainly not be in the enviable position that it is in today, and local people, like the hundreds of workers at Britco making housing units, wouldn’t be able to provide for their families with the well paying jobs they have today. A strong natural resources sector means a strong Canada, and that’s a message that deserves to be repeated, again and again. ◗ Mark Strahl is the MP for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon.

ver the years it has become pretty clear that disasters happen. They can run from limited tragedies like car crashes or wet basements or house fires, all the way to earthquakes, floods, and forest fires that escape containment and wipe out entire communities. While the biggest concern in these parts —at this time of year—is the possibility of massive flooding of the Fraser River, we’ve had nearly all of the standard disasters played out in B.C. We’ve even had the occasional hurricane, to mix up our expectations a bit. We can’t know exactly when or how a disaster will take place, and even when we have forewarning, as in a Fraser flood, it’s difficult to judge the precise impact to expect. That’s why general preparedness is important for everyone. And part of that has to be about being personally prepared, and knowing how, when the chips are down, to lend a hand to desperate neighbours. When disaster strikes, emergency workers may not reach everyone for several days. Last week was Emergency Preparedness Week across Canada. It’s a national awareness campaign that encourages everyone to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies: – Know the risks specific to your community. – Develop a family emergency plan and practise it. – Prepare emergency kits for your home and your vehicle. To learn more about being prepared for a disaster, visit the Emergency Management BC website at and the Public Safety Canada website at www.

MLA O’Mahony deserves apology from UFV

Editor: I attended the recent ceremony marking the official opening of the University of the Fraser Valley’s main new campus just off Keith Wilson Road. As expected, the ceremony included speeches from many people including board chairs, presidents of UFV and local politicians. As a person who spent many years on city and regional councils in Ontario and as a person who has attended similar ceremonies on many occasions, I know something of the protocol involving who is chosen to make a speech at such an event. It is of course normal to include your setting federal MP, which was done in this case. It is then normal to include the mayor or the mayor’s representative, which was done in this case. It is then expected that you will hear from the sitting MLA who represents the area where the university is located, which was not done in this case. The sitting MLA, Gwen O’Mahony, was not asked to speak. Why not? She was recognized, but was not included in the speakers’ assembly. An MLA representing the adjacent riding was on the speakers’ list. In over one and a half hours of speeches, O’Mahony was not to be heard from. This despite the fact that the campus of the new UFV is smack-dead centred in the centre of Gwen’s riding. Again, I ask, why? Gwen, herself, is too decent of a person to complain; but, I cannot let this insult pass. In the total one and a half hours of speeches, not one local woman was amongst the speakers. The MLA from North Vancouver, a woman, also spoke. I afterwards complained to one of the organizers and was not given any sort of a reason for this oversight. Could it be that many of the speakers are prominent BC Liberals? Could it be that this “old-boys” network simply wanted to exclude any more women? Undoubtedly, it may be a combination of both of these reasons. The organizers of this event owe Gwen O’Mahony an apology and this apology should be issued through local media outlets.

Local drivers don’t obey speed limits Editor: It is becoming almost impossible to drive in Chilliwack now while obeying posted speed limits. The majority of drivers have proved that they do not respect speed limits and have no intention of doing so. If they cannot be trusted to obey existing limits and tailgate those of us who do, then there is no other way but to do it for them. I propose that Chilliwack and other municipalities adopt the systems already in place on the M25 Motorway in England and the toll roads in France. For example, when driving on Evans Road, a camera takes a picture of your car licence plate recording the time. Further down Evans, another camera records you leaving the area. If you exceed the posted limit, then you will have arrived at the second camera too soon, and a speeding ticket will be mailed to the owner of the vehicle. I propose three of these tickets will give you a five-year suspension and two more a 10-year suspension. It’s as simple as that. When driving down Evans from the Knight Road intersection south to the tracks at 50 km/h, it only takes two minutes. Why speed to save a few seconds and inconvenience everybody else, plus break the law. It is not worth it. They say the camera does not lie. Let’s install a few around town as they will surely pay for themselves in no time flat. John Garrard Chilliwack

Sally Ann food drive big success Editor: We have had a great day and

worked late into the evening, due to the generosity of Chilliwack We are extremely pleased with the drive and the great participation by our local organizations and citizens. We are truly fortunate to have so many caring people and organizations in our community willing to partner with The Salvation Army and reach out to help those in need. At the “Give it up for Hunger Drive” a total of 13,500 food items were donated and collected by our participating groups. This is enough to pack approximately 400 hampers for those in need. Just over $400 in funds were also raised. Please be assured that we try to screen everybody that applies for the planned hamper program and are diligent in distribution of Chilliwack generosity. We at the Salvation Army would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to all that participated in making Chilliwack the caring place it is. Ian Pratt Community Ministries Director The Salvation Army

community’s care. They are inherited from past generations who built them well and used them for entertainment and socializing. If they are significant enough in our collective psyche they are maintained in the present with the idea of bestowing them for the benefit and pleasure of future generations. They have much to tell us about our past, our social customs, the tastes of the period, the unique architecture and in the case of the Paramount, the movies and all the latest technology available at the time to show them. When you demolish a community’s history you are severing the connection we all need for the past—whether we ever stepped through those doors we can still appreciate that link to past lives. We savour the sense that people walked this street, loved this house, enjoyed this theatre. By throwing away this building and the historical artifacts that lie within you are saying that nothing of this building’s cultural heritage is important or significant to the community’s history. Instead a sign can say, “Here once stood . . . .” No one ever says, I used to have my grandfather’s watch but I threw it away because it didn’t work. I tore up my mother’s photo because it took up room on my desk. I needed more space on the wall for another picture so I got rid of my two-year-old’s scribble. Deeper connections require careful actions. That is why you bother saving the Paramount. Christine Camilleri Chilliwack

The Paramount: Why Full stop needed bother saving it? for garbage trucks Editor:

Most people have mementos from their family’s past: an old watch worn by their great grandfather, a photo of their youthful mother, a love letter, a child’s drawing. These are treasures that are personal and are a connection to the past and a legacy to future generations. You would never consider throwing them away or tearing them up. Someone outside your family might do that. If you let the next generation of your family know about their significance they can keep them safe. It’s the same way and even more so with old buildings. Cultural heritage buildings are in a

GRAND OPENING One block west of the Cottonwood Mall on Luckakuck Way

Editor: We live in front of an elementary school. The other day, which was a garbage collection day, while I was watching my kids walk to school, the recycling collection truck passed. It is a single-person operated truck. The person is doing a great job and in a very efficient fashion, however here is the major problem. In order to minimize the time it takes for the person to stop the truck, get out, pick up and drop the recyclings, get back in the truck and drive to the next stop, the person pulls a little lever or button and jumps out while the truck is

still moving. Often, the person is so efficient that the truck does not completely come to a rest and the driver gets back into it while it is still moving. This whole operation relies on an electrical-mechanical-hydraulic system. I don’t know about you but any system is prone to break at some point. What makes the matter worse it that the person was doing this in a school zone while kids were crossing the street. The truck never really stopped while nobody was behind the wheel. I don’t care if those trucks get regular inspections and maintenance schedules, they should not operate this breaking mechanism in a school zone. They should stop the truck completely, put it on Park, do the collection and go on until way out of the zone. Maybe a 200-metre safety buffer should be used on school zone streets where collection takes place, for the safety of the kids and adults accompanying them. Ray Belanger Chilliwack

CFO resignation isn’t real news Editor: As I prepare for our 10th season here in Cultus Lake I find myself offended by the article regarding our CFO resigning from her position and how the tactic of name calling our elected officials has made headline news in the local paper. I would be curious as to how quickly a story such as this would run had it been a disgruntled employee within the City of Chilliwack. Who would be interested in reading that? Change is necessary in Cultus Lake and on a positive note our newly formed Main Beach Events and Fundraising Committee has been strongly supported by our elected Chairman Mr. Bob McCrea. Only due to the reputation that precedes Mr. McRae have I been motivated to work with this committee to build and unify this community that I live and operate a business within. The positive support of the media would be far more beneficial to the efforts put forth by the Cultus Lake Park Board in achieving their vision for the future of Cultus Lake.

New coach, new talent, new start

Hoping to win first game in two seasons BY TYLER OLSEN


here was a new sense of optimism at Chilliwack Huskers’ spring camp this weekend as dozens of junior football hopefuls took to the gridiron. With a new coach at the helm and new talent on the field, hopes are high that the Huskers will be able to turn the corner after two years during which the team failed to win a single regular season game. “It’s looking good,” third-year Husker safety Andy Bolland told the Times Saturday. “Everyone’s got a bit more talent this year.” Returning receiver Dylan Boykowich agreed. Just an hour into the first practice, Boykowich said new head coach Tyson St. James had impressed with his involvement and passion. “He knows what he wants,” said Boykowich during a break. But the new coach has also brought a new set of expectations for the Huskers, and on Monday he told the Times that there is still substantial work to get the players game-ready. “It looks like there’s a lot of work to do,” said St. James. “I feel really positive about the core of players we have back,” he said. But pointing to new recruits from minor and high school football programs, he noted: “They’re all quite raw in terms of playing junior football.”


hilliwack Track and Field Club athletes put in strong performances at the recent 2012 NorWesters Elementaries Meet at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby. Marin Lenz (10-year-old girls) finished second in the 60-metre dash, third in both the shot put and discus throw, fourth in both the high jump and 100-metre dash, and seventh in the long jump. Sienna Lenz (12-year-old girls) claimed first in the 300-metre dash and long jump, second in the 200metre dash and discus throw, third in the shot put and high jump, and fourth in the 100-metre dash.

Chilliwack Huskers recruits and returnees hit the turf at Townsend Park for the football club’s spring camp last weekend. With spring camp over, St. James will turn his focus to signing new players and designing offensive and defensive systems that suit the new personnel. Many of the players will return for training camp at the beginning of July, at which point St. James and his fellow coaches will try to iron out the various wrinkles in the recruits’ games. “It’s not an impossible task,” he said. “It’s just a body of work.” Built like a tank One of the biggest additions to this year’s Huskers squad looks to be

Former Chiefs getting inline

Spartans bring home medals




pair of former Chilliwack Chiefs will suit up for Team Canada at the upcoming IIHF Inline Hockey World Championship in Germany. Matthew Hutchinson and Malcolm Gould will each blade for Canada at the event, which runs from June 1 to 7. Hutchinson skated for Canada last year at the World Inline Hockey Championships. The two ex-Chiefs have each signed commitments with American universities to play college hockey next year. Hutchinson will suit up for Geneseo University in New York, while Gould will play for Michigan Tech. The Chiefs also announced that Michael Spring has committed to the College of St. Scholastica for the upcoming season. Spring, like Hutchinson, skated as an overage player last year and was not eligible to return.

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce will submit a policy to the BC Chamber that would see owner’s of derelict properties, such as the old Safeway building, be subject to tougher penalties.

Chamber seeks to change derelict building rules


he Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce wants the province to give municipalities the ability to crack down on the owners of vacant and derelict buildings. The chamber will submit a piece of policy to the BC Chamber later this month for discussion and, hopefully, a vote. If approved, the BC Chamber would ask the province to allow municipalities to

“introduce penalties and surtaxes to motivate the owners of vacant and derelict properties to improve and maintain such properties.” Patti MacAhonic, the executive director of the Chilliwack Chamber, said she has received many calls from members complaining about derelict buildings. She pointed to the old Safeway building as one local example. “It’s just a big space and it nega-

tively impacts business around that area, and if we can get a development in there, it would create more life and breathe vitality into the downtown,” she said. The chamber says municipalities should be allowed to counteract what it says are “negative incentives” that deter property owners from improving their buildings; such incentives include the possibility of higher tax assessments and

taxes on potential capital gains. The chamber says current rules allowing municipalities to act on derelict properties “are too narrowly defined to allow for councils to introduce comprehensive bylaws containing effective penalties.” While municipalities may impose prohibitions on properties, there is no provision that allows cities or towns to impose fines or surtaxes on the absent owners of

derelict buildings. “If the government can give municipalities a little more power then they can implement escalating taxation or work with them,” said MacAhonic. “You don’t want to penalize people who can’t afford anything,” she said. “We’re not looking to hurt anyone, we’re looking to help everyone.”

olf and business go together like mulligans and sand traps. It’s no surprise, then, that Tourism Chilliwack and the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business on the Green Golf Tournament is so popular. The event has sold out each of its nine years, according to organizer Joldie Hayes at Tourism Chilliwack, and is a great way to both meet fellow businesspeople and get out of the office.

This year’s event will take place June 21 at Cultus Lake Golf Course. “It’s a unique event because we try to have beverages and/or food and an activity of some sort at as many holes as we can,” said Hayes. She said the event is a fantastic networking opportunity—but one that doesn’t feel anything like work. “It gives our members or partners an opportunity to connect at something different,” hayes

said. “It’s a very casual setting.” Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic said the event is a great way to build a clientele while having fun. “It’s a way for people to get out and about and talk with other business people,” she said. “It’s a real fun event.

TAR 98.3 and Earls Chilliwack took on Manhattan for their ninth annual Martini Mingle on April 24. This sold out event raised $15,000, benefiting the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation’s Campaign for Health Care Excellence, in support of Chilliwack General Hospital. Stylishly clad guests enjoyed New Yorkthemed appetizers, Manhattan-styled mingling, a fashion show, photo booth, silent and live auctions and one lucky attendee walked away with the grand prize: a New York trip for two to the heart of Manhattan, including four nights hotel, airfare and a

“Sex and the City Tour,” all compliments of Roblin Travel and Cruise. And, of course, what would the Martini Mingle be without martinis? Guests sampled and voted on the top five shaken and stirred recipes from this year’s contest. The winner, Lauri Yolkowski, received a $200 Earls Chilliwack gift certificate and her winning entry, Glamour Girl Cosmo, will be featured on the Earls Chilliwack Menu for a year! “We are pleased to do our part to support the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation,” said Raffaele Aillo, general manager for Earls Chilliwack.

News MISTAKE, from page 1 When the motion was made to approve the budget, Chair Louise Piper and trustees Doug McKay, Barry Neufeld and Walt Krahn voted to pass it that night after its first public presentation. Trustees Silvia Dyck, Martha Wiens and Heather Maahs, however, were opposed. “Because our budget consultation was not open to the public, because the preliminary budget was presented in a closed finance and facilities meeting, because our agenda has not been made available for public scrutiny with the budget in it until today, I am opposed to passing this right now,” Maahs said. Speaking to the Times Friday, board finance chair Doug McKay said he was disappointed the $4 million clerical error slipped past the finance department, the superintendent and all seven trustees. “I’m not going to make excuses for any of us, but mistakes happen,” he said. “I’m glad someone noticed it and brought it to our attention.” Someone at the meeting would likely have asked for an explanation about the projected $2.3 decrease in teachers’ salaries if the mistake had not been made, he said, especially given the ongoing labour dispute between teachers and the provincial government He said he has since discussed the matter with finance director James Richards, however, and been told that the decrease in anticipated teacher salary costs is the result of a change in district accounting practices this year and won’t affect the actual number of teachers or their pay. “It makes you wonder about the shell game,” said CTA president Katharin Midzain responding to news of the $4 million clerical error and the projected decrease in teacher salary costs.


Shell game She said she is “suspicious” of new provincial reporting requirements for districts. “I know that this district very closely follows the guidelines set for them by the ministry . . . but it makes me wonder what the guidelines being set are.” Further muddying the waters on the proposed budget is that projected figures for 2012-13 are compared to figures from the unamended 2011-12 budget. Until this year, the district has always used the amended figures from the current year to compare to projected figures for the upcoming budget. Had amended figures been used in the 201213 budget presented at Tuesday’s meeting, it would have shown a $257,080 decrease in the district’s total operating expenses next year instead of a $2.2 million increase. It would also have shown only a $355,677 increase in provincial operating grants instead of an increase of more than $2 million. That too can be explained by a change in reporting, McKay said, but trustees didn’t know about that before they were presented with the budget Tuesday. “To know that we had changed our accounting practice would have been valuable information,” McKay said. Despite that lack of discussion this year, however, he said the new accounting practices being put in place by the district are a good thing and will make budget projections more accurate in the future. That being said, he will be asking for clarification from staff when the proposed budget comes to the board for final approval next week.

Marilynn (Anita) Marko October 6, 1930 – May 8, 2012

Friends are welcome to join the family on Saturday, May 19 at 7:00 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses 45660 Watson Road.

Marjorie passed away peacefully in her sleep at Waverly Senior’s Village May 10, 2012 at the age of 102. Survived by her step-son Dick (Anne), granddaughter Christine(Darren) and great grandchild Caitlin; granddaughter Heather and great grandchildren Thomas and Emma together with a sizable group of nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews spread all over Alberta, Saskatchewan, and BC, all of whom will miss her greatly. Marjorie was born Nov 1, 1909 in Shawville, Quebec and moved with her family, as an infant to homestead in SW Saskatchewan. She cared for her mother after high school and graduated from VGH nursing school in 1939. She served in the United Church hospital at Bella Bella for many years and in the late 50’s became a Public Health nurse in Chilliwack with an office at Coqualeetza Hospital. There she met and married Jim Thompson who passed away Nov 12, 1992 after a marriage lasting nearly 30 years. During her time in Chilliwack Marjorie made a multitude of friendships lasting decades. She was a member of Carmen United Church, the Chilliwack Lace Club, Red Cross, numerous bridge groups and had many friendships during the years she lived at Edenbank & Lynnwood. We would like to thank every one of the many staff, present and past of Waverly Seniors Village, who gave Marjorie truly loving care and attention. There will be no service by request. If desired, it would please Marjorie immensely if donations were made in her memory to Children’s Hospital, who saved the life of her only grandson, Thomas. Please visit to leave a message of condolence for the family Henderson’s Funeral Home 604-792-1344

PAYNE, Sandra Aug 15, 1959 - May 05, 2012 Sandra Passed away peacefully May 5th after a lengthy battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed by her children Nicole and Phillip, grandchildren Julia, Noah, Sheldon, Patrick, Joseph, Kayden, boyfriend John, as well as her surviving 5 sisters, 7 brothers, and many friends and relatives. Born in Fogo, NFLD, moving to Toronto, finally settling in the Fraser Valley, she raised her children, working as a health care worker with the aged, she brought comfort and compassion to those in need. Sandra took great pleasure in her grandchildren, as well as numerous outings with family and friends on camping and fishing trips on the Fraser river. Sandra will be returned home to Fogo to rest in peace, where a service will be held. The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to the staff at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission for their professional care and dedication, as well as the many friends and relatives who visited regularly and supported Sandra in her final weeks.
