Trudeau pays tribute to loyal Singleton

Real Estate Weekly

ustin Trudeau was in Chilliwack last week speaking to fans, curious guests and Liberal Party faithful. The Liberal leadership hopeful was here to honour long-time local party stalwart Hal Singleton, who is facing terminal colon cancer. Trudeau reiterated his focus on a new kind of politics and changing how democracy works in Ottawa. He said instead of voting for the representatives voters want, we have reached the point where people vote against the parties they don’t want. This causes a swing back and forth between the right and the left and cements an us-versus-them mentality, according to Trudeau. “Some might be asking, ‘What in the world is Justin doing in Chilliwack today?’” he said. “It is because the future of Canada is right here. The future of the Liberal Party is right here. “There is no our gang or their gang, there are only Canadians and that is something we’ve allowed ourselves to forget.” During his speech, Trudeau touched on many subjects covered in a Times interview before the visit: the state of the Liberal brand, western alienation and being the son of Pierre Trudeau. He also touched on the predominantly Conservative nature of Chilliwack. “If you are a Liberal in Chilliwack it’s not because it gets you into the country club,” he said. He said he was travelling the country and getting inspired by individuals like Singleton and others who “dare to call themselves Liberal in Chilliwack.” Singleton’s son spoke at the Coast event followed by his father, who reminisced on years past and was jovial with the crowd. He did, however, talk

Love-in for Hal & Justin


Young Street Station


Justin Trudeau and Hal Singleton share a moment after both men spoke at the Coast Hotel on Thursday. about his health and what he said are flaws in the medical system that saw a highly treatable disease go undetected until, for him, it is too late. Singleton also talked briefly about the closure of CFB Chilliwack, something he does not look at as the cataclysmic loss many others do. “Look at what has happened to the base [now],” he said. “We have more stability now than always under the threat of a base closure.” In recent days, Trudeau has been under considerable pressure for controversial comments he made about Alberta during a 2010 TV interview in Quebec. In the video clip of the 2010 interview, which Sun Media began rebroadcasting Thursday afternoon, Trudeau says, “Canada isn’t doing well right now because it’s Albertans who control our community and sociodemocratic agenda. It doesn’t work.” Asked if Canada is better served when there are more Quebecers in power than when there are more Albertans in power, Trudeau replied: “I’m a Liberal so of course I believe

that.” He went on to add that the great prime ministers of the 20th century were MPs from Quebec. “This country, Canada, it belongs to us,” he said. It was during his visit in Chilliwack that those comments started to gain media attention. A Sun Media reporter was at the Coast and during a media scrum Trudeau was asked if what he said in 2010 was taken out of context.

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

He said it had, but he did also apologize for the comments. He has since apologized further. “I’m sorry I said what I did. I was wrong to relate the area of the country that Mr. (Stephen) Harper is from with the people who live there and with the policies that he has that don’t represent the values of most Canadians,” said Trudeau the next day in Vancouver. Earlier, inside the room, there was a fawning, rock star feel to Trudeau’s visit. After taking a photo of Trudeau with his wife Laura, former mayor Clint Hames said he remembered when Justin’s father came through Chilliwack in 1968. Current Mayor Sharon Gaetz had Trudeau sign the Pierre Trudeau page in her copy of the book Great Canadian Speeches. Before the meet-and-greet event at the Coast Hotel, Trudeau was at a $600-a-head fundraising lunch at Bravo that raised $15,000 for the local Liberal constituency association. - with files from the Vancouver Sun



Justice hears twisted logic of ‘self-governing’ person BY TYLER OLSEN


Fort Langley man told a befuddled Provincial Court judge Thursday that he was within his rights as a “self-governing” person to operate his vehicle without a licence when he was stopped at, then fled from, a police roadblock last summer near Cultus Lake. Douglas Norman Baker, 51, was defending himself at his trial on two charges of obstructing a peace officer and one charge of driving while prohibited. Baker didn’t dispute the circumstances of the charges, except to insist that he was “travelling” not “driving,” which he said would have required him to be conducting business or in the employ of the government. In 2010, he was stopped by Abbotsford police while driving without a valid licence. His Ford Bronco was impounded at the time and he was handed a driving prohibition. On June 30, 2011, he was stopped at a police roadblock near Cultus Lake. Asked if he possessed a driver’s licence, he told Const. Bradley Rendall, “No, I don’t.” Instead, Baker handed Rendall three documents, including his birth certificate and a statement that began: “Take notice, with all due respect officer, I am a self-governing sovereign child of God exercising my inalienable right to travel in my private vehicle.” The document ended: “I will now bid you God’s peace and farewell.” After being told his car would be impounded, and as another Mountie asked him for his keys, Baker returned to his vehicle and left the scene.

He was stopped again 500 metres down Columbia Valley Road. Baker’s theories are similar to those held by the so-called “Freeman” or “natural person” movement. He attempted to submit a 48-page document as evidence. But Crown counsel Robert Gunnell called the submission “a pile of pseudo-legal mumbo jumbo,” and it was rejected by Judge Roy Dickey as not being applicable to the case. Baker, though, stuck to his guns and called the incident a “misunderstanding.” Throughout the day-long trial, he asked the arresting officers whether he was a government employee or if he had a contract with ICBC. Without a contract, Baker said he wasn’t at the mercy of laws that prohibit the operation of a motor vehicle without a licence. “I think the evidence is self-explanatory,” he said. “They did get my notice of intent . . . I went back to my vehicle and simply drove away after the officer had seen my notice. “I am a human being,” he continued. “I am a man. I have common-law rights.” Because he was acting as a private citizen, he said he was entitled to his constitutionenshrined right of “free travel.” That had Dickey looking confused. “Do you realize the ability to drive is a privilege not a right?” he asked, explaining that various courts have asserted and confirmed that ruling when challenged. As he concluded his defence, Baker expressed gratitude at being given his day in court: “I really appreciate your patience with me. I know this has been an experience, but I hope I’m not the worst.” Dickey will hand down his decision on the case in mid January.

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON hilliwack dairy farmers Peter and Nicole Tuytel are among seven couples vying for the title of Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmer. The Tuytels were presented with the 2012 BC & Yukon Outstanding Young Farmer Award at the annual BC Agriculture Gala in Abbotsford in January. The couple are now up for the national award to be handed out Nov. 30 in Charlottetown, PEI, at Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmer (OYF) annual event. Peter, 38, and Nicole, 31, run Elmbridge Farms, a 120head herd of purebred cattle from which they sell embryos around the world. From $200 to $2,000, the Tuytels have sold embryos to buyers in Australia, Brazil, Switzerland, China, the U.S.,

Their most famous cow, Elmbridge Loveable, is a Canadian national champion. The cow, which is a cross of Peter’s maternal line with Nicole’s paternal line was named the best bred and owned cow in the red-andwhite Holstein show at the 2011 World Dairy Expo. Needless to say, the couple are serious Holstein people. “We are pretty passionate about the genetics and the breeding and the industry,” Peter said earlier this year. “It’s something we love.” The annual OYF event on Nov. 30 features some of the

most entrepreneurial agricultural producers from across Canada. Together with OYF alumni and the larger agricultural industry, the event features a special forum on farm labour and concludes with a gala banquet to announce Canada’s 2012 national OYF winners. Celebrating 32 years, Canada’s OutstandingYoung Farmers is open to participants 18 to 39 years of age, who make the majority of their income from on-farm sources. Participants are selected from seven regions across Canada. Two couples among the seven nominated will win.

nce upon a time not that long ago, local seniors with dementia and other complex health problems had to find their way to various medical appointments in a lot of different places around Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley to get the right care. Since June, however, the Chilliwack Primary Care Seniors Clinic at the Chilliwack Hospital has worked to change all that. The clinic is a one-stop shop for both seniors and their family doctors looking for specialized care for the elderly. On Thursday it celebrated its official opening with the signing of a partnership agreement between the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice and the Fraser Health Authority. The clinic, which has already seen 113 patients, was designed in part on input from seniors with dementia and their families, as well as the Chilliwack Alzheimer’s Society. “What we heard from them was they got confused about who and how and where services are here in Chilliwack,” said Fraser Health director of clinical programs for older adults Kathleen Friesen, who co-chaired the clinic’s working group. “They also wait, they said, sometimes between three to six years to receive a diagnosis of dementia.” The clinic was also designed to support family doctors treating elderly patients who need specialized care. Now, instead of sending them to multiple specialists in multiple locations,

Park a Lucky businessman


hilliwack businessman Yoon Bok Park was one of two B.C. entrepreneurs recognized with an award earlier this month for WelcomeBC Day—a day proclaimed by the provincial government to recognize exceptional contributions by B.C.’s immigrants and immigrant services. Park, who immigrated from Korea, was singled out for the success of his sixth startup company, Lucky 6 Industrial Co., which manufactures plastic bottles for medical supplements and supplies in Chilliwack. Park renovated an industrial property here and worked with the municipality and suppliers to customize it for his business operation. Since 2011, he has grown Lucky 6 into a successful business with future plans for expansion, and he is now prospecting for

investment partners. WelcomeBC was launched in 2007 by the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation to create a network of settlement programs and services across the province for newcomers and immigrants to access free language training, settlement and labour market services. WelcomeBC Day was first proclaimed in 2010. “Every year newcomers from around the world choose to call B.C. home,” said Jobs Minister Pat Bell. “WelcomeBC Day gives us an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate individual outstanding contributions and the hard work of organizations across B.C. to welcome immigrants in to their communities. Investing in our newcomers, we are also investing in the future of our

◗ Opinion

Look on the bright side


t’s difficult to explain in a couple short paragraphs the reason Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving at a different time than Americans, who dug into turkey just last weekend. In part, that’s because my knowledge comes from roughly four minutes of research on Wikipedia. In that brief time, I did learn that Canada’s Thanksgiving was aimed to coincide with our harvest while the United States’ Thanksgiving feast traces its roots to the pilgrims’ arrival in December. But how the holiday took root in November, I’m still not sure. No matter. The point is, by the time Americans are gathering with family, we Canadians are done being thankful. Instead, we’ve moved to a months’ long grudge against the weather and desperate pining for the sun. Elsewhere in Canada, there’s snow and cold to complain about. Here in the Lower Mainland, there’s rain and clouds. So, so much rain, and clouds that turn the sun into a forgotten presence. When it appears, we laugh at bitter jokes about that giant orange globe in the sky. Hilarious!, we think, while plotting the invasion of various Carribean islands. Anyways, in the spirit of our southern neighbours, I thought it would be a good exercise to


Win,Lose orTy actually catalog why we should be grateful for our winter. Studies show that smiling—even if you don’t mean it—can actually make a person a little happier. Perhaps writing positively about our least-favourite season can accomplish the same trick. So here goes: First of all, let us be thankful for our shorter days. As I write this, the time is 4 p.m. and it’s already getting dark outside. Complain all you want, but the darkness obscures the pelting rain soaking everything outside. If you don’t look too closely, and if you convince yourself that you’ve chosen to work until 11 p.m., then the scene isn’t too different from a warm evening rain after a sweltering August day. OK, that wasn’t great. Let’s try another. Fresh water, after all, is the foundation of all life on earth. Without rain, Earth couldn’t sustain life and we wouldn’t be here. We’d all be dead, and that would suck. Yes, it would be nice to be

able venture out of your home without an umbrella and a kayak, but do you want to be alive and miserable, or do you want to be dead and comfortable? Huh? That’s what I thought. Alright, that’s less than uplifting. Let’s consider the alternatives: we could live in Winnipeg and have to endure months of negative temperatures and snow drifts. Although, you do at least gte to brag about your hardiness and make fun of others, you also have to endure icicles growing from anything and everything, including other icicles. Here, that water doesn’t freeze if you encounter it. Instead, it just soaks into your clothes, your pores and every other filament of your body, chilling you from the inside to a temperature below bearable but just above that which would cause a quick and painless death. No? Fine. Let’s try family. The weather forces us to find comfort and happiness with those people we wrongly neglect when the sun is out, the pavement dry and the scent of summer is in the air. Sure you can’t hit the golf course or go for an evening walk, but you can snuggle into your couch, grab a warm dinner and engross yourself in the Vancouver Canucks inevitable march to the Stanley Cup. Or not.

lack Friday, Cyber Monday, crossborder shopping—everybody’s looking for the special deals that will make all those post-Christmas credit card statements just a bit easier to open. Everyone is looking for a way to get more while spending less. There’s little thought towards a longterm view—at least not much longer than the arrival of those Christmas bills in January. But the fact is, in the end, you always get what you pay for. Take your money across the border into the United States, for instance, and you may save a few bucks on a gallon of gas, some milk, dry goods and a fresh pair of shoes. But at the same time, you’re paying for economic benefits that will be enjoyed by another country—benefits that don’t come back home to you. You may be escaping paying local, provincial and even federal taxes but the services that those taxes pay for will have to be paid in some other way or cut altogether. It’s simple economics. Take your money out of Chilliwack, and you’re paying for improvements for another community, someone else’s streets, someone else’s schools and parks, someone else’s civic services. Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic pointed out that money spent inside Chilliwack circulates within the community, shedding benefits as it moves around. She said money spent in the community supports the local tax base, supporting local businesses, supporting locally employed residents and ultimately supporting the entire community. “In a time when many farmers and businesses are struggling to maintain their livelihood, we can do our part to support them while preserving our agricultural heritage,” MacAhonic said. Developing the local economy also helps the environment, she said. “By reducing the distance food and goods travel, we can reduce carbon emissions and leave a smaller ecological footprint, doing our part to maintain cleaner air and water and to preserve farmland for future generations.” The pros of shopping locally simply outweigh the cons.

Editor: Re: Nov. 22 Letter to the Editor “Chuck deserves appointment.” Wow! Chuck deserves appointment and deserves to live without the burden of “silent suffering” for himself and the rest of the family. If that was indeed the truth and feeling, Chuck should have consulted the family and refused the appointment and remained in his quiet rural livingroom and enjoy his more-than-adequate, I will concede deserved, goldplated public pension. Rick MacLeod would not have had an opinion about the appointment of Chuck. An opinion Rick MacLeod is entitled to, given the incongruous juxtaposition of such an appointment with the lack of respect Chuck and his party have given veterans when they marched onto his local office. The New Veterans Charter, to which Chuck stood in his place and voted yes, cannot be extricated from anything that he does vis-à-vis being an Honorary L-Col. of any regiment. Rationally, Veterans Affair seemed to work well before 2006 before his government decided to tinker with it. The war in Afghanistan was starting to cost money for all the injured soldiers who were sent on Canada’s behalf. What is irrational is the New Veterans Charter that limits benefits to short-term lump-sum payments for life disabling injuries, to achieve budget shortfalls. Military personnel returning from Afghanistan and other conflicts or seriously injured at home should not have to take the government to court to receive what should be. And that, brother Gary, is the legacy MP (ret.) Chuck Strahl and now Honorary L-Col. of the Westies, will carry with him forever. Jacques Gratton Chilliwack

cerning Mark Strahl and MPs. The fact is that MPs in general have only one important requirement, that is to just get elected and hold on to their jobs. They have no power, and if they do try to resist the party line, they are dealt with severely like a disobedient child and sent to the back benches where they can’t disturb the status quo. They are toothless tigers, all noise and no substance. They become yes men and have to rubber stamp party policy as dictated by the Prime Minister and his cabinet. So why do we need them? It does appear that we would be better off without MPs altogether. So far, your MP may lend you a sympathetic ear, but you may as well blow it out your backside for all the good it will do. Big interest groups such as Business Council on National Issues, National Action Committee on the Status of Women and other interest groups such as Pollution Probe, etc. have more influence by meeting one-onone with cabinet ministers or top bureaucrats. So why do we need MPs? Mark Strahl may be a very nice man, but he hasn’t done or shown anything to make me consider him as an effective representative for his constituents, nor has any other MP.

Not sure why we have MPs

Chuck should have done more

Letters must include first and last names and your hometown and should be fewer than 200 words. To view our letters/privacy policy visit our website at www. (Times, Nov. 22), I also respect the military contribution of your family, however, Chuck (as you call him) has not, in my opinion, returned that service or respect to the Canadian Forces. My experience with your brother has been to say the least, disappointing. His lack of interest and action to questions concerning veteran pensions and the New Veterans Charter leave little room for me to give Chuck the respect only a family member can give. Take yourself out of the family for enough time to read the following true scenarios of wounded soldiers returning from Afghanistan and what they received from the New Veterans Charter (NVM) and tell me honestly if you think if these soldiers were treated fairly. Tell me again, truthfully (remember you have discharged yourself from the family) that you would have the same respect for a politician that had anything to do with bringing in that legislation. Just a note, I met Michal (nephew) at the Nov. 11 ceremony in Chilliwack and personally thanked him for his service and contribution. To me he seems like a confident and well-rounded young man with a future ahead of him. However, what if Michal had returned injured from Afghanistan? Let’s say a minor war injury, two shattered legs. One upper leg pinned together with a rod. Other lower leg put together with plates. Can’t run—walks with limp. Michal would have received a onetime, taxable lump sum payment of $14,000 from Veteran Affairs Canada, with no other

payments or benefits. What if Michal had planned to become a police officer? That career is now not possible. What if he wanted to attend university, here there would be no financial support from Veteran Affairs Canada? It is estimated that if Michal were able to legally challenge his proposed payout, the courts would likely award $200,000 for his disability taking into account his loss of longer term earning ability. How about another scenario this time with a little more serious injury; Michal is hit in a mine explosion in Afghanistan. Michal sustained significant internal injuries (removed spleen and kidney, partially removed pancreas, fractured rib, collapsed lung, and a severe abdominal infection), all which has left him with life-long medical and health issues. Veterans Affairs Canada would provide Michal a one-time taxable payment of only $40,000, with no other payments or benefits. Converted to an annuity, this proposed settlement amount would equal a payment of approximately $140 per month at current interest rates, which is both taxable and non-indexed. A review of the applicable provincial Workers Compensation program indicates that for the same disability, a payment of $1,400 per month would likely apply, which would also be both tax-free and indexed for long-term inflation. Gary, this is why I have little respect for your brother. He was part of that government that brought in the NewVeterans Charter. In my opinion, Chuck, with a large constituency of retired and serving Canadian Armed Forces members, should have fought this legislation to the bitter end. However, there is no record of Chuck ever opposing or suggesting anything that would improve that legislation.You are bitter because I wrote a little critique on your brother’s performance, try putting yourself in one or the other of the above soldier’s circumstance and think of your brother and what he could have done.

Three Mainland Division teams made trades over the weekend. The Prince George Spruce Kings were most active, adding youth. They traded 19-year-old forward Liam Board to the Vernon Vipers for 17year-old rearguard Kevin Giultinan. They also sent 20-year-old Bradley Ryan to Coquitlam for Jace Hennig, 17, and Mark Begert, 19. The Langley Rivermen, meanwhile, picked up Ryan Fraser-Lee, 19, from the Pembroke Lumber Kings.

Chiefs claim Cent-imental win BY TYLER OLSEN


day after seeing their winstreak ended by a desperate team, the Chilliwack Chiefs showed some grit of their own Saturday en route to a hardearned victory over the same Merritt Centennials squad that beat them the night before. The Cents beat Chilliwack 5-3 Friday night in Merritt, but the Chiefs got their revenge the following night in a fiercely contested 3-2 win at Prospera Centre. The Friday loss ended both the Chiefs’ six-game win streak and Merritt’s own three-game losing skid. The two teams traded chances, and goals in the first period. Spencer Graboski scored just 1:37 in, but Merritt’s Dane Birks evened the score on the power play midway through the frame. The Centennials came out strong in the second period and put three goals past Chiefs goalie Mitch Gillam in the first eight minutes to make the score 4-1. Power play markers from Luke Esposito, late in the second, and Spencer Graboski, midway through the third, tightened the scoreline but couldn’t salvage the game. “I thought Merritt was certainly the better team,” Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl said. “They looked desperate—maybe from losing three games straight.” The following night, playing in front of their largest crowd of the year—2,779 fans—Smyl’s Chiefs ground out a 3-2 victory with special teams again playing a crucial part. After a goal-less first period punctuated by an early scrum that saw players pair off and Graboski and Merritt’s John Saunders fight, the Chiefs power play went to work in the second. With Merritt down a man, Luke Esposito took a sly behind-the-net feed from Austin Plevy to open the scoring. Sebastien Pare capitalized on a Ben Israel turnover midway

But Plevy quickly responded on another man advantage. Israel’s power play point shot missed the net but bounced back towards the side of the net, from where Plevy shot into a yawning cage. Derek Huisman scored on a near-identical play in the third to tie the game—although a high shot forced the former Chief to bat the puck out of mid-air for his goal. But the Cash Mob-inspired crowd was not to be denied their happy ending. With 4:15 left in the game Jaret Babych flubbed a shot from the side of the net that eluded Merritt netminder Tyler Steel and gave the Chiefs the win. While he noted the game could have gone either way, Smyl thought his team deserved the good result. “It was a character performance by our guys,” he said. The Chiefs started the game with a shortened

bench: forward Ryan Donohoe was out with a shoulder injury and defencemen Alexandre PerronFontaine and Kiefer McNaughton were also sidelined with injuries. Affiliate player BrandonVolpe drew into the lineup, but things got even tighter when Tanner Cochrane was tossed from the game in the first period for a hit-from-behind. “Guys were put in certain roles they haven’t been in all year,” Smyl said. “We used everybody on that bench and everybody contributed in some way.” Gillam leads PK Saturday’s game featured numerous infractions and saw the Chiefs penalty killing put to the test. Merritt boasts the league’s best power play, while Chilliwack’s penalty killing entered the weekend tops in the BCHL. On Friday night, the Centennials prevailed, scoring on two of

three opportunities. If they could have done the same Saturday, the Chiefs would have lost. Instead, Chilliwack’s penalty killers limited Merritt to just one goal on nine chances. Smyl gives goalie Mitch Gillam much of the credit for his team’s ability to kill off penalties this year. “It usually starts with your goaltending,” he said. “A lot of times we give up the perimeter shot, [often] because we know Mitch is capable and doesn’t give away second opportunities, and then we’re doing a great job of boxing people out and keeping them on the outside and really working well as a group.” Chiefs still ranked ninth The Chiefs held onto ninth spot in the Canadian Junior Hockey League’s weekly rankings. Victoria and Penticon also feature in the rankings, while the Surrey Eagles earned an honourable mention.

November 2012

The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce host a special Christmas get-together on Dec. 18 that features wine tasting and wine etiquette. The location has yet to be announced.

Chamber helps business folks get educated on wine etiquette

ith Fraser Valley residents now spending more money on wine than beer, according to recent BC Liquor Distribution Branch numbers, it’s more important than ever to brush up on wine etiquette for the holiday season. “Wine is a social part of business at lots of different functions, and it’s nice to be educated,” said Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic. To help folks in the local business community bone up on wine dos and don’ts, the Chamber is

hosting a special Christmas gettogether Dec. 18 that will feature wine tasting, tips on wine pairings and a session on everything you ever wanted to know about wine etiquette but were afraid to ask. The session is being put on by Kim Murphy, proprietor of the Sardis Park VQA BC Wine Store. What wine faux pas bugs her the most? “People carefully select the perfect bottle of wine to bring

to someone’s house for dinner, and then the host or hostess doesn’t open that wine,” she said. “That’s probably my biggest pet peeve from a wine-etiquette perspective. You’ve gone out, you shopped for it, you’ve spent your time, and then the person who gets it puts it on their shelf and opens their homemade bottle of wine.” Other common gaffes that separate the wheat from the wine-

culture chaff, she said, include overfilling glasses and serving wines at the wrong temperature. During her session, Murphy will get participants up to speed on all the wine-manner basics. “It’s just about being culturally aware,” she said. “It’s about being educated on wine, including the proper etiquette, so you know how to properly present yourself at a business lunch, at a business dinner, at a gathering.” Along with tips on wine manners, Murphy will also be sharing ideas on quick-and-easy wine

per cent) said they would be willing to pay more for groceries if a version was available from a local grower or producer, and MacAhonic said restaurants and grocery stores benefit from offering locally grown products— something more and more Chilliwack businesses are doing. Developing the local economy also helps the environment, she said. “By reducing the distance food and goods travel, we can reduce carbon emissions and leave a smaller ecological footprint, doing our part to maintain cleaner air and water and to preserve farmland for future generations,” MacAhonic said.

s Chilliwack residents get ready to dig into their wallets and spend on everything from Christmas gifts to holiday entertaining, the busiest time in retail is fast approaching. But instead of heading out of town or across the border to make purchases, the Chilliwack Chamber is urging locals to consider the benefits of shopping locally. Since small local businesses are the biggest employers both provincially and nationally, shopping locally and boosting local businesses’ bottom line make sense because it’s good for employment, says Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic. Another benefit of supporting Chilliwack’s small local businesses, she said, is that they are more likely to support local events, schools and charities than the larger ‘big box’ businesses.

By spending locally on Christmas gifts, residents also contribute to the local tax base which in turn improves services that benefit everyone. Buying from local farmers and producers also means supporting local businesses and providing income for families in the community. “In a time when many farmers and businesses are struggling to maintain their livelihood, we can do our part to support them while preserving our agricultural heritage,” MacAhonic said. More and more Canadians are getting aboard with local shopping according to an Abacus Data study released last year, and the buy-local movement is no longer a niche market. Almost seven in 10 Canadians (69 per cent) said they would be willing to pay more money for a meal at a restaurant if all the ingredients were grown locally. Almost three in four Canadians (74

for the holiday season is Mission Hills Perpetua, a handcrafted Chardonnay from the Okanagan. “It’s your perfect winter white to just sit and sip, have with some brie cheese or even your turkey dinner,” Murphy said.

Chamber Voice


012 was a year of significant change for your local Chamber. With the year drawing to a close and with an exciting 2013 on the horizon, we want to take this opportunity to bring the business community up to date on what has been accomplished during 2012. In addition to the many successful high-profile events—including the recent 18th annual Business Excellence Awards—a number of outstanding networking opportunities took place. Chamber members of all sizes have expressed appreciation for these gatherings including the valuable exposure to interesting speakers, community leaders, as well as opportunities for personal and professional development. Just as importantly, your Chamber has become more active in advocating to government on behalf of members on important issues such mobile business licensing, derelict buildings and others. Traditionally, that has been a crucial role of a chamber. We are pleased to tell you that we have made significant advancements in that responsibility throughout


Executive Director 2012 and will continue to do so in the future. From the feedback received from members, it is an activity that is both overdue and welcome. As well, over the past year, the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce has undergone some significant changes to the way it does business internally. Membership dues pay for a large part of the organization’s operations. The professional and efficient management of these funds and best practices in respect to all internal administrative operations are taken very seriously. The addition of new relationship manager software has added increased value to our membership and to the way we conduct business. As the voice of business we take the lead on best practices and strongly support our businesses in numerous ways. We are one of the fastest

growing Chambers in B.C. in 2012 and it reflects well on our Chamber and community. We welcome the following new members for October and November: Akal Gardens Ltd Keith Graham Photography Kerkhoff Engineering Ltd. Stuart Young Advantage Rehabilitation Management Hana Sushi Kuro Asian Cuisine Hearts Alive Class A Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. Garrison Bistro Inc.

On behalf of the Chamber’s Board and Staff, our best wishes for a joyful and safe holiday season go out to all members and their families and the community at large. May 2013 be your best year ever.

Chamber Voice

Hard work means lots of new Chamber members


s 2012 draws to a close, it’s interesting to look a back at the many accomplishments over this past year for the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce. Staff and the board of directors have worked diligently on several initiatives to foster the Chamber movement in Chilliwack. There have been many fun things—the annual Envision Business on the Green Golf Tournament—hosted as a partnership between the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Chilliwack. The Business Excellence Awards held this past October shined a light on the amazing membership and business community we are lucky to serve. The monthly social gatherings, Chamber Connections, have been an excellent networking opportunity for all members—and continue to run strong month after month. There has been a fair amount of nitty-gritty work as well—largely in the policy area of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce. The Fraser Valley Chambers introduced the mobile business licence model which


Chamber President is now approved and is, or will be shortly, in full swing making it easier for businesses to work in a legal and safe manner anywhere in the valley. A special thanks to the City of Chilliwack and other Fraser Valley municipalities for endorsing and implementing this cost saving and timesaving initiative. One of the most exciting aspects of this year has simply been membership growth. The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce has seen a significant spike in new members—specifically over the latter half of the year. This is a testament to the effort that staff and the board of directors have been undertaking to provide a positive atmosphere for business to prosper. Welcome to all new members to the Chamber—I hope you get out of your Chamber membership as much or

more than you put into it! I would like to send a sincere thank you to Mark Andersen, vice-president of the Chamber for his hard work and dedication. The board recently received Mark’s resignation as he has chosen to take on a significant role at the provincial level with the BC Realtors Association. I know Mark’s tenure has been cut short but the opportunity was too much to pass up. Kirk Dzaman has moved into the vice-president role and a second VP will be appointed prior to the end of 2012. If you are interested in joining the Board of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce, our nomination committee is actively looking for new board members for various terms. Simply contact the office or visit the website for more information. I hope 2013 continues in the positive way 2012 has ended off. Kevin Gemmell, President Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce

NEUFELD, John Henry

Thursday, November 22, 2012 John Neufeld, our dear father, grandfather and great grandfather passed away peacefully on November 22, 2012 at the age of 95. His wife Frieda was by his side. John was predeceased by wife Katie in 1946, wife Tina in 1990, daughter Elfriede in 1942, son Elmer in 1951, four brothers and three sisters. He is survived by wife Frieda, brothers Corny and Frank, son Don (Kae), daughter Dorothy (Ron Hoffart), son Dave (Darlene) and daughter Vicki (Matthew Talbot) and 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by Frieda’s sons Ron (Martha), Dave (Janet), daughter Betty (Ferd Wuensche), and sons Steve (Bev) and Vic (Miriam) together with 17 step grandchildren and 14 step great-grandchildren. John was born in Russia and immigrated to Canada at age 13 where he worked as a farmer until moving to Edmonton with a young family in the 1950’s. There he worked as a truck driver, milk delivery man, and school custodian. In 1964 he moved to the Fraser Valley where he lived until his passing. John was very active in church leadership in Edmonton and was one of the founders of the Lendrum MB Church in that city. He was a man of faith and lived a consistent life. John took great pride in his family, watching the accomplishments of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The size of his family more than doubled on the day in 1991 that he married Frieda Ratzlaff. Frieda was an amazing friend and partner to John for over 21 years. Her family and social circles added new richness to his life. The family is very thankful for the doctors who looked after John and for the staff at Valleyhaven Retirement Community who demonstrated care and compassion each day. A celebration of John’s life will be held on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 1:30 pm at Central Community Church at 46100 Chilliwack Central Rd, Chilliwack, BC. Pastor Ron van Akker officiating. Family and friends are welcome.
