Timing off for survey

Those behind early French immersion see many flaws BY CORNELIA NAYLOR


arents lobbying for early French immersion in the Chilliwack school district are concerned a survey aimed at gauging interest might get lost in the Christmas shuffle. “It’s a crazy time of year to have this study,” said Jocelyn Thomas, president of the Chilliwack chapter of Canadian Parents for French. “Everybody has everything else on their mind.” The survey, which comes in both an online and paper format, was released Dec. 4. Responses are due Dec. 18 for the paper survey and Dec. 21 for the electronic one, so Thomas’s organization is now scrambling to get the word out. “We want to contact all the daycares and preschools to let the parents with young families know,” she said. Besides its timing during the Christmas bustle, Thomas is concerned about the survey’s reach. So far the district has only publicized it within the district: on its website, in school newsletters and on school websites. But not all parents who might want an early French immersion program already have kids in the system and could therefore be missed, according to Thomas. That’s important, she said, because the survey is intended to See SURVEY, Page 7

BMO makes big deposit BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


he sad story of BMO Bank of Montreal’s move out of Five Corners downtown Chilliwack has a happy ending after all as the financial institution donated the building to the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV). The Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) will also contribute up to $650,000 to renovate the building that by next fall will host UFV classes. At a press conference held inside

Bank makes biggest B.C. donation ever by giving UFV its historic Five Corners branch the old bank Friday, a BMO official and CEPCO representative handed over a symbolic key to UFV president Mark Evered. “We see a real value in having a space right at the core of Chilliwack’s downtown,” Evered said. “This generous donation by BMO and the additional support provided by CEPCO will help us to play a lead role in the revitalization of the area and

address the educational needs of the business community.” Evered said no concrete plans were in place in terms of what courses would be offered at what is to be called the UFV Plaza, but he suggested the programs would likely be aimed at supporting the business community. “We are exploring a number of ideas,” Evered said, adding later that

the location might be a good place for ElderCollege. Valued at $850,000, the donation is the largest BMO has ever made in British Columbia, according to Henry Donkers, vice-president of personal banking for BMO. AddCEPCO’s$650,000donationand the $1.5 million value is the largest See BMO, Page 10

That’s because Bradley and his family live on private property uniquely situated on a forest service road (FSR) on the south side of the Chilliwack River. “It’s just us,” Gionet said of their remote rural home adding, “We are the forgotten family of Chilliwack.” Bradley lives with his father and mother, Bill and Debbie, along with his grandparents, Herb and Doreen Spratt, who are in their 80s.

The Gionet family knows living in a remote rural location comes with some drawbacks, but they say it’s become a Catch-22 situation with the FVRD

ily pay considerable property taxes for which they get virtually no services. Obviously they have no water, sewer or garbage pick-up. Mail goes to a box on the other side of the river but given the nebulous address, not all the mail arrives. (The family generally refers to their address as 48701 Tamihi-Liumchen Forest Service Road. The Ministry of Forests calls it the Liumchen Forest Service Road. B.C. Assessment says they live at 48701 Tamahi Rd. And Google Maps say they live on the Vedder Logging Co. Road.) Whatever the road’s name, the

main complaint over the years has been the quality of that lone access to the home. During the wind storm in 2007 a transformer hit the family’s power lines causing a fire. It was that emergency and a call to 9-1-1, that led them to realize that the fire department wouldn’t travel the road and the property had been removed from the service area in 1992. An FVRD staff report from 2007 said: “The Forest Service Road leading to Mr. Spratt’s property is about two kilometres of unpaved very rough road filled with pot holes. Previously the bridges had been in

poor shape but have been replaced in the last year. In other words, it has been and at times can be unsafe or impossible to take a fire truck down to his property.” No fire service is one thing but when Bradley’s father had a stroke in April of this year, it took the ambulance 45 minutes to get to the house. “One reason being that maps and GPS systems couldn’t locate us, as the road has several names,” he said. “Another being that the ambulance could only travel about 20 km/h down the road.” See SERVICE, Page 10

that if we need to.” As for publicizing the survey more broadly, Novak said the district hadn’t considered it. The timeline for the start of a possible program is September 2014, according to the survey. If the program gets the green light, Thomas said Chilliwack CPF will lobby the district to start both a kindergarten and Grade 1 class at that time, instead of just a kindergarten class as indicated by the district earlier. “There is enough demand that we can see for that year as well,” said Thomas. ◗ For more information or to take the survey, visit was incorrectly reported that Pannett was retiring from his job as provincial dairy technologist.

A report on the feasibility of an early immersion program in Chilliwack is due by the end of January.

Vigils important, but not enough


he national candlelight vigils that take place on every Dec. 6 to remember and honour the 14 women students murdered at École Polytechnique in Montreal simply because they were women are important and moving because these vigils honour all those women and children victimized every year, everywhere. But the day isn’t solely about remembering. It’s called the Day of Action and Remembrance on Violence Against Women and Children. But in B.C., there has been far too little action. Violence against women and children takes a terrible toll. In B.C., almost 100 women were killed by their spouses between 2003 and 2011. (These numbers don’t include the murdered and missing women from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, B.C.’s Highway 16 or the many communities coping with the epidemic of violence against women.) Almost 60,000 women experience sexual and physical violence each year in BC. Having a day to remember isn’t nearly enough. We need committed leadership. We need people who speak up when they see women disrespected and people to step in when they see injustice. We need to choose the kind of society we want to live in and hold leaders accountable.


Be Our Guest In September, Victoria’s police department withdrew critical resources from a regional domestic violence unit created as a result of recommendations from an inquest into a horrific mass murder in Oak Bay in 2007. This unit is being considered a “luxury,” the department said. But preventing violence against women and children and providing support cannot be seen as luxuries or discretionary spending to be cut. In the last two years, reports by the Child and Youth Representative of BC, the Justice Institute of BC and others found that not enough is being done in our province to ensure women and their kids are kept safe from violence. Programs in B.C. have faced budget cuts that prevented them from providing help that could keep women and children safe from violence, and help them recover. On Nov. 11, 2011, 124 of the BC Society of Transition House’s programs participated in a one-day census. On this one day, these anti-violence programs helped 1,110 women and children in per-

son, and another 1,461 via phone or email. But they turned away 658 women, youth and children. Other anti-violence programs connected to the Ending Violence Association of B.C. are having the same problem. There just isn’t enough funding in place to respond. Community services make a huge difference every day. And it is simply wrong when they are prevented from providing the help and support that can save lives. In B.C., high-profile tragedies bring a flurry of activity and announcements related to violence against women and children. But what’s needed is a continuing, well-planned and adequately funded set of supports and prevention services that are shaped by community need. British Columbians need to hear all from leaders at all levels of government about their specific plans to address violence against woman and children. A provincial election is coming. Please make your voice heard. We will continue to remember and honour those who have fallen to violence. But it is time for action. ◗ Shabna Ali is executive director of the B.C. Society of Transition Houses and Tracy Porteous is executive director of the Ending Violence Association of B.C. They submitted this on behalf of the Roundtable of Provincial Service Organizations.

his is a particularly risky time of the year to be a pedestrian. It gets dark early and is often pitch black outside by the time many commuters hit the road for home. Rain, wind and bright headlights make spotting pedestrians very difficult. Combine this with drivers who are often thinking about how they’re going to get all of their Christmas shopping done, or how they’re going to finish projects at work, and you have a partial recipe for disaster. But add a couple of other ingredients, such as pedestrians wearing dark clothing or drivers who think they can operate their vehicles after having a couple of glasses of wine, and a risky endeavour quickly changes into a deadly one. In the past couple of weeks the Lower Mainland has seen several pedestrians struck, and some killed. In at least one case, drivers have not stopped to take responsibility or help the victims. Such tragedies destroy lives and families, and can impact workplaces and whole communities. The damage can wreak havoc for decades to come. And the added tragedy is that most of these accidents could have been avoided. Take more time when driving—anticipate that distracted pedestrians in shopping areas are likely to step off the curbs without looking or rush across the streets. If you’re going out walking at night, wear reflective clothing or even flashing bike lights. Never assume a driver sees you. And never assume that someone is going to stop just because you step out into a crosswalk. If you’re thinking of having a drink— even just one—don’t drink and drive. If you are going to drink, organize a ride with Operation Red Nose, take a taxi or arrange a designated driver system. But don’t, if you’re a pedestrian or a driver, take chances. It’s not worth it.

Nothing racist about the true story of Sinterklaas Editor: Bob Groeneveld’s opinion in “White guy, black slave, racist?” in the Dec. 6 Times is unfortunately not getting the facts straight. The origins of the Sinterklaas/Black Peter tradition had nothing to do with slavery and racism. With his biased view he is apt to deprive the Dutch group in our society of a much-loved tradition. I wonder which traditions he is next to tackle: the East Indians, the Chinese? The story of St. Nicolaas began with the Vikings. Their God named Odin rode throughout the world in the winter on his eight-footed horse, Sleipnir, giving out gifts or punishment. His son Thor, god of farming, thunder and war made his home in the far North. His weapon was the lightning rod, his colour was red. While his father went about the world, Thor fought the gods of ice and snow, and conquered the cold. During the same season, the gentle German goddess Hertha came down with her gifts of good fortune and health. In the Germanic north of Europe, where memories of pagan deities lingered deep below the Christian surface, the bishop became mixed up with still existing pagan beliefs: bishop’s robe became a long red winter coat, the miter turned into a fur cap. St. Nicholas has traditionally brought gifts to German children on the eve of his feast day, Dec. 6. He traveled with a dark-faced companion, often a frightening figure, known variously as Krampus, Pelzebock, Pelznickel, Hans Muff, Bartel, or Gumphinkel. Most commonly the companion was called Knecht Ruprecht and carried a bundle of switches. Children in Germany trembled before the annual visit of the Weinachtsmann, carrying gifts for good children and birch twigs with which to punish the naughty ones. Various sinister companions might accompany the Weinachtsmann. Those people gave Nicholas a white horse, previously owned by the God Wodan, along with Wodan’s spear, which they later transformed with a curl at the top. The wavy beard and cape were also the property of Wodan, who is now cold and horseless. Nicholas was named Sankt Herr Klaas, which the Dutch transformed to Sinterklaas and the English to Saint Nick. For Wodan and his son Oel, the Germanics used to lay presents under the smoke hole of their medieval houses, hoping that they would be rewarded by their god with new fertility, with life and with spring. Oel went by the houses to receive these presents, or to punish those who deserved such. He entered the house through the smoke hole, through which his face was darkened by the soot. After the tenth century Oel received a mortal name: Peter (black Peter) and became the boy servant to Nicholas. In olden days, young people were touched with bundles of twigs during initiation ceremonies, so as to give them growing strength and fertility. From then onwards, they were treated as adults and were allowed to marry. The bundle of twigs used by Black Peter nowadays to deliver taps to his left and right are still a remainder of that old practice. The origin of the sack, carried

The next day it was out again, so that it could restart its climb to the heavens. This is why Peter carries that bag; Saint Nicholas with his white beard symbolizes the full moon and Peter with his soot black face symbolizes the new moon, the one that’s gone in the sack. In many parts of the Old World, St. Nicholas’ Day and Christmas blended into a single treat, and the old man of Myra marched on as jolly patron of a cheerful and expectant season. The German Weinachtsmann has more resemblance to the English American Santa Claus than to Saint Nicholas. The different Santas worldwide were arrayed in every colour of the rainbow, sometimes even in black. But they all had long white beards and carried gifts for the children. If Bob Groeneveld was right about his views, it raises the question why it is so immensely popular in a country like Holland even amongst those who are not Caucasion. Frans Dullemond Chilliwack

Seasons greetings in a secular way Editor: As the dreary days of December draw ever closer to the winter solstice, I’m always happy to see people adding lights to homes and landscapes, decorating with holly and ivy and bringing in the tree. Those and other traditions tend to lift our spirits and make the Christmas season a special time of year for all of us, believer and non-believer alike. However, at this time of year, I hear a lot of bleating and braying about Jesus being the “reason for the season.” I’d just like to point out that the aforementioned traditions and many others predate the birth of Christ, some by centuries. The Roman festival of Saturnalia, which culminated on Dec. 25, was celebrated around the winter solstice and included feasting and gift-giving. Other pagan cultures in northern Europe celebrated the solstice by decorating evergreen trees and hanging mistletoe which symbolized peace and love. Even Christian scholars agree that Dec. 25 was most likely not Christ’s birthday. There is no biblical mention of Christ being born on Dec. 25 and the earliest historical record of celebrating his birthday at the winter solstice is from the 4th century AD. Certainly, Christianity has added to the whole solstice festival in tradi-

tion, story and song, and Christians gave it a new name but they don’t own it. We all get to enjoy the trimming of trees, the giving of gifts and the other reasons for the season. In closing, I’d like to wish one and all a very merry Christmas, in a secular kind of way. Gord Smith Chilliwack

Lost confidence in Conservatives Editor: I thank you for your articles regarding Bev MacGregor (follow up in the Dec. 6 Times page A3 “Rallying for cancer victim”). I applaud the friends, relatives and community and even strangers for their compassion and response. And as great as it is it will not be enough to save Bev MacGregor from possibly losing her townhome in the future or affording all the meds needed to help her conquer cancer. The system needs to change; the EI system, the medical system, the CPP system and the social welfare system need better appeal options for cases such as this. That is the responsibility of our elected officials, and I call on MP and MLA to do something about this—that is why they are elected by the people, to be for the people and to do what is right. I voted for both Strahls, and when another person I know was involved in a very similar situation Chuck Strahl went to bat for that person to get EI and they did. I am not so quick to vote for Mark again due to his attitude and comments on this subject. When I mentioned this other case Mark Strahl said, “that was before the change.” Well he was one that voted for the change and he should have thought this through before doing that. He should have done his research and found that these cancer patients are not eligible for Social Assistance without liquidating their assets (including homes); nor are they considered prime candidates for CPP disability. The latter is especially hard to collect as they seem to turn down almost everyone who does not apply numerous times and jump through all the hoops. As for the comment about it not being fiscally responsible, maybe the Conservatives, and all MPs who voted against cancer patients collecting what EI benefits they may have earned and are entitled to, should first consider how “fiscally responsible” their own wages and pension are in this “economy.” It is always easier to throw those terms around when it is not affecting your own pocketbook or ability to keep

a home you have worked hard for or be refused benefits you worked hard for. It is not just the “small business” that Mark likes to protect who paid into those benefits. The employees themselves have paid benefits through their own payroll deductions; and even the employer’s part is owed to them for their work time in that business. I was happy to see MacGregor’s last employer donated $1,000, and that sort of blows Strahl’s comment about it being too hard on small business (to pay the EI benefits sick benefits) out of the water. The best test of a politician, so far as we are concerned, is the ability to admit when you made a mistake and go back and correct it. Mark Strahl needs to go back and ask his party to revamp this bill to at least have a reasonable appeal clause for people in similar positions to MacGregor. That is the only thing that would convince me, and likely many others, to consider voting for him in the future. Fiscal responsibility should begin with the MP’s own wages and benefits; that would save a lot of money in this economy and maybe prevent people like MacGregor from being denied benefits they paid into. Let’s not be the silent majority on this issue; let your MLA and MP know how you feel. Consider what you would do if you or a relative who was the main, or only, income earner for the family were suddenly stricken with cancer and denied all or any benefits you have paid into or financial assistance; even medical needs in such a time as this. We need MPs who are not “yes men” but will vote in favour of the people who elected them to do so. We have lost confidence in the Conservative Party after voting Conservative for many years.

It’s a shame seniors must pay premiums Editor: British Columbia is the only province or territory in Canada where seniors pay medical plan premiums. In some provinces no one pays these premiums, and in some provinces, seniors have never paid. B.C. is supposed to be a “have” province and prosperous; why then do the seniors pay medical premiums? This is shameful that seniors in B.C. are the only seniors in Canada that pay these premiums. In B.C. there are more than 70,000 retired seniors that receive municipal/superannuation payments, but only about 7,000 are members of the MPRA ( Municipal Pension Retirees Association)—an organization that is fighting against reduced benefits for seniors and payment of medical plan premiums. The B.C. government will not take the voice of 7,000 seriously, but they would have to listen to an organization that represents 70,000 (and their sphere of influence—family/ friends/neighbours) contacts. This number does not include the thousands of seniors that don’t receive a municipal pension, who should be connecting to an OAP or other organization to help bring this matter to

the forefront before the next election. After all, a very large percentage of the voters are seniors. If you are a retiree who receives a public sector pension, join your local MPRA District now and help us help you. In Chilliwack, contact MPRA District 4 president Malcolm Shanks at 604-858-7633 or attend the next meeting at the Chilliwack Library on Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. Malcolm Shanks Chilliwack

Physical fitness helps with school Editor: In today’s technology-driven, plasma-screened-in world, it has been brought to my attention that our inactivity is killing us. Findings from studies in Chilliwack seem to support this. They state that only 72 per cent of Chilliwack students finish highschool within six years of starting Grade 8. Maybe this is a sign that they are going about it all wrong. Instead of focusing on academics, they should concentrate more on developing healthy students through physical fitness. I can personally feel the effects fitness has on the brain. Since September I have been attending the baseball academy at Sardis secondary. I participate in two-and-a-half hours of physical education everyday. My grades have gone from Cs to Bs in this short amount of time. The relationship between food, physical activity and learning is clearly important and should not be ignored. To keep our brains at peak performance our bodies need to work hard. Physical activity is crucial to the way we think and feel. I think our school district should put more emphasis on physical education if it wants our city’s graduation rate to improve. Jacob Stelting Sardis

Another successful seniors dinner Editor: Thank you seniors who attended and supported the Seniors Christmas dinner on Dec. 5 at Chilliwack secondary school. We had a sold-out crowd of 200. Again the cafeteria was transformed into a beautiful dining room. The round tables with linen table cloths and red napkins in water glasses looked very festive. The menu was a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Thank you to teaching chef Terry McDougall, chef instructor Sharon Touchet, baker Christine Cutajar and garde manger Judith Booker. The culinary arts students and all the student volunteers are to be commended for a job well done. We appreciate all the time and effort that goes into this event. Proceeds go to the CSSS Culinary Arts Program. Please mark your calendar for the Seniors Bursary Dinner to be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2013. Thelma Schwandt on behalf of the committee


News SERVICE, from page 3 The four-kilometre stretch of FSR is filled with potholes that requires travelling at very slow speed but it is passable in a two-wheel-drive car. However, when the family complains to the forest district they are told the road is fine. “The road is safe but it must be driven at speeds appropriate for the surface conditions to ensure safety and reduce vehicle wear and tear,” Chilliwack District Manager Allan Johnsrude told the Times via email. Johnsrude added that because FSRs are maintained largely by industrial users and no log hauling is occurring, there has been no grading since the forest district’s late summer 2012 works. Bradley feels they are in a Catch-22: they are told fire trucks won’t come because the road is no good but when they complain about the road they are told it’s fine. Twice a year the district grades the road but this isn’t enough for the family. “The issues we face may be our own, as we have no neighbours,” Bradley wrote in a letter to Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony. “The BMO, from page 1 gift UFV has ever received. “Rather than just turning their back on [the building] they’ve turned it into a positive thing,” CEPCO board chair Bruce Van Den Brink said Friday.“It could be a good foundation for the future of the downtown.” Mayor Sharon Gaetz lauded the donation and the positive news for downtown. “What an exciting day for the City of Chilliwack,” she said. “I’m glad Santa Claus came to town a little early. . . . How absolutely incredible that University of the Fraser Valley will now be in the heart of downtown.” Gaetz made a nod to the city’s long-term vision for the Yale/Young block across the street. “I imagined when your students look out this window maybe six of seven years from now and they will see an incredible development in front of them and maybe some of them will live in the apart-

Takes toll

fact remains, if the government is unable to care for the only access in and out of our property, they never should have sold off this portion of land so many years ago.” Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) Area E director Dave Lamson said the FSR, like all roads in his jurisdiction, is a provincial responsibility. As for fire service, he said the family has not contacted him since the 2007 incident and that if they want into the fire service area, they can apply. The Spratts purchased the 40-acre property 40 years ago. Since then flooding has eliminated more than five acres. But despite the remote nature, the road is heavily travelled in spring and summer by legal and illegal recreational users. “The excess traffic takes its toll,” Bradley said. “This is part of living where we do. The sad thing is due to the extremely over-inflated property value, ridiculous amounts of tax dollars are going nowhere to support us.” O’Mahony told the Times that she has just begun to look into the Gionet/Spratt family’s concerns.

Optimism ments up above,” she said. In November, city hall issued a “notice of intent” to expropriate the Irwin Block at Five Corners as part of the plan to assemble a 1.5-acre piece of the block for possible residential/commercial development. When BMO first announced its move in 2011 that it was moving from Five Corners to the Eagle Landing development on the Squiala First Nation Reserve, Gaetz said she was “not happy.” “It is well-used by the merchants in downtown and some older folks like to walk there,” she said at the time. With the District Public House now open, development plans for the Irwin Block in place and now the UFV Plaza, there is a feeling of optimism for the downtown. Meanwhile, BMO held a grand opening of the new Eagle Landing branch on Saturday.

Fourth-place finish for CSS

Lost Classic semifinal game to eventual winner Elgin Park BY CORNELIA NAYLOR



he Chilliwack secondary school senior boys basketball team got the top-four finish they were gunning for this weekend—just. The Storm finished fourth at their 33rd Chilliwack Classic Invitational Basketball Tournament Saturday after falling to Sa-Hali secondary 88-61. CSS kicked off the tournament with a pair of wins (67-43 over Chilliwack’s Unity Christian and 84-76 against Valleyview) but were outsized and outscored in the semifinal by a tough and experienced Elgin Park team, who went on to win the tournament in the final against Semiahmoo. “This year we’re a shooting team and we’re trying to run a lot more than we’ve every run, and we just bogged down and couldn’t get shots,” CSS coach Joe Mauro said. “They were so much bigger. They pushed us around. They beat us up.” Despite his team’s size deficit, which cost them this tournament, Mauro remains optimistic about the season. “We’ve got kids that really want to play hard, and it’s helping us big time right now,” he said. Two of those players are Brendan Janz and Steve Norrish, who were named first-team and second-team allstars respectively. Single-A Unity Christian, meanwhile, made the most of its games against the “big boys” to prepare for the upcoming season. With Unity being the only single-A team at the tournament, coach Mike Campbell said he didn’t expect to win any games, and the team’s opening 67-43 loss to CSS looked to confirm his prediction. In their second game against AAA Maple Ridge, however, his team surprised even him. Down by 14 points with seven minutes to play, Unity turned the game around, closing on a 33-13 run to win the game 63-60.


Send Them Sky High This Christmas! Cornelia Naylor/TIMES

Chilliwack secondary’s Steve Norrish takes the ball to the hoop en route to a 84-76 win over Valleyview secondary Thursday during the 33rd annual Chilliwack Classic Invitational Basketball Tournament at CSS. Grade 10 Alex Leiper supplied a dramatic three pointer at the buzzer for the win. “I have coached in over 600 games, and that was one of the craziest games I have ever coached in,” said Campbell.

Unity then dispatched Kwantlen Park, a school 10 times its size, 70-33 in the consolation final. Clay Driesen scored 23 points, and Ryan Billsten broke a school record with 13 blocked shots.

Great showcase for local senior girls basketball Helps heat up cross-town rivalries



.W. Graham secondary dominated a showcase of four Chilliwack high school senior girls basketball teams this weekend. In what organizers hope to make an annual event, G.W. Graham, Chilliwack secondary, Sardis secondary and Unity Christian faced off in a round-robin tournament Thursday to Saturday that rotated to a different school each night. “The weekend was a great showcase in Chilliwack for girls basketball,” said GWG coach Sarah Mouritzen. “This is a great cross-town rivalry event.”

The Grizzlies, who got an honourable mention in provincial preseason AA rankings, defeated Unity 79-43 Thursday, CSS 81-34 Friday and Sardis 78-34 Saturday. In all three games Kaitlyn McDonald dominated on the offensive end, racking up 33 points and six threes against CSS, 30 points and five three against Unity and 48 points and nine threes against Sardis. On the defensive end, Katie Sutherland and Aveen Rezends were a force to be reckoned, while Kassia Bednarczyk and Leah Thompson dominated the boards. Jenika Bannerman, meanwhile, lead the team in steals and continued to push the ball and create the fastbreak game. In other games, Sardis defeated Chilliwack 64-61 Thursday and Unity 52-35 Friday, while CSS won 74-40 over Unity Saturday.

BCHL notes...

The Chilliwack Chiefs were likely more than a little grateful to not see the face of Philip Zielonka on the bench of the Coquitlam Express last Wednesday. Zielonka was out with the flu, which is the only thing that has stopped him recently. The Harvard-bound Zielonka has scored in the last nine games he has played in and is also riding a 16-game point streak.

Lost more than just the game Coquitlam Chilliwack

3 2



he second period of last Wednesday’s game against the Coquitlam Express was just about the worst 20 minutes imaginable for the Chilliwack Chiefs. If the Express had only outscored the Chiefs 3-0 in the period it would be bad enough. But not only did Coquitlam tie the game, take the lead and then net what proved to be the game winning goal—all in less than 10 minutes—but the Chiefs also lost their leading goal scorer to what looks to be a serious injury when Josh Hansen left the game with a knee problem The Chiefs had opened the scoring midway through the first on Spencer Graboski’s sixth goal of the year. After losing to the Trail Smoke Eaters in their last game, the Chiefs looked set to return to their winning ways and outshot the Express 16-5 in the opening period. But Coquitlam turned the tables in the second and Express netminder Cole Huggins held the fort in the third, allowing only a later Trevor Hills goal. The second period had Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl concerned with both the play and the health of his hockey team. “Right now we’re making some mistakes that are really costing us,” he said, blaming his team’s poor second period on a lack of focus. Asked if the Chiefs could have grown complacent at the top of the BCHL standings, Smyl said that could be one of several factors contributing to just the Chiefs’ second two-game losing streak this season. “There are really no excuses,” he said. We need to be way better

Chiefs forward Trevor Hills takes away the shooting lane of Coquitlam Express defenceman Marc Biega. than we have been.” At the same time, the Chiefs face the prospect of trying to replace the offence of their leading goal scorer. The full extent of Hansen’s injury is not known, but Smyl said Friday that he expects the Chilliwack forward to be out of the lineup for at least four weeks. While Hansen no longer leads the BCHL in goals, his 18 markers are tops on the Chiefs and he had combined with Austin Plevy and Luke Esposito to form one of the league’s top lines. The problem is magnified by the fact that Hansen is just one of several Chiefs forward battling an injury. Ryan Donohoe has missed eight games this year with shoulder problems and hasn’t played since Nov. 23 in Merritt. Jaret Babych and Mathieu Tibbet also both missed Wednesday’s game with concussions. Donohoe, Babych, Hansen and Tibbet have combined for 33 goals this season, a full third of the Chief’s offence. And while he’s not a forward,

missed the game with a shoulder injury. A depleted forward core will put more strain on the offence, but it will also give more opportunities to players who might be asking Santa Claus for power play time. “We’ve put other kids in certain minutes and bigger minutes and our expectation is for them to grow,” Smyl said. “We have other players on our team who haven’t got the minutes [Hansen] has and we’re looking for them to find a way.” Smyl, though, is concerned by the effect injuries will have both in the short and long term. “It’s a worry for us to have as many as we’ve had and a lot of times, when you get into that groove, you have [injuries] the rest of the year as well, and that’s alarming,” he said. “The fact that we’re 10 days off and we’re breaking for nine days, I guess the timing is good for that, but we still have games in between there and still have had games that are hurting us a little bit.

Dave Johnson of Mountainview Harley-Davidson issued a Fundraising Challenge which cost him his hair, but raised close to $12,000 for the “Ride to Conquer Cancer.”

Johnson sporting new do for cancer


t was a bet Mountainview Harley-Davidson owner Dave Johnson was happy to lose. Mountainview HarleyDavidson held a customer appreciation event on Nov 30 called “Men’s Night.” A large amount of attendees were members of the Fraser Valley HOG (Harley Owners Group) Chapter. Rob Deverall, a customer, HOG member, and friend, was recently diagnosed with an advanced case of lung cancer. Deverall and some others are doing the “Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.” Johnson issued his challenge to raise money for Deverall’s team. He pledged to match all donations and further promised that if cus-

tomers would donate $5,000 by Friday Dec. 7, he would shave his head. In total, Johnson and the Hogs cut a cheque for $11,245 to The Ride to Conquer Cancer on Saturday. And Johnson is sporting a brand new shiny dome. “This dealership has always been involved with cancer benefits,” Johnson said, relating how both he and wife Lori have lost parents to the disease. Johnson’s best friend, Ross Allan, a Calgary resident, also succumbed to brain cancer on Friday, further bringing home the need to find a cure. “We’re just trying to bring awareness and funding to a disease that is hitting so many of us,” he said.

Your chance to change a life


hile most of us take our vehicles for granted, for some, every trip to the grocery store, to school or to the doctor’s office is a gamble on a less-than-reliable truck or car. For many of those people, a set of good wheels can transform their lives. That’s why, since 2004, the Chilliwack Times has teamed with local car dealerships and repair shops to give away a fully refurbished car to a deserving family or individual at Christmas time.

This year, the Times, Fix Auto Chilliwack, Valley Toyota and Simpson Auto are uniting for the ninth annual Christmas Car Giveaway. T h e Ti m e s i s n ow a c c e p t ing nomination letters for those whose lives could be significantly improved by the gift of reliable transportation. Nominees may be a family or person who has fallen on hard times financially, who has health issues, or is a single parent. To nominate a family or indi-

vidual, send a 300-words-or-less letter explaining why the nominee is worthy of this Christmas gift. A selection panel will read each letter and the final choice will be based on need. The deadline for nominations is Dec. 14 at 5 p.m.

Last year’s winner of the Christmas Car Giveaway was Maureen Beckford and her daughter Sarah.

SHIRLEY ANNE DWVINICZUK It is with great sadness and tears in my eyes that I announce the passing of my mother, Shirley Anne Dwviniczuk. She fought a courageous battle against cancer and passed away with family at her bedside on November 21, 2012 at Abbotsford Hospital at the age of 75 years. Shirley Anne Elmourne was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on December 20, 1936 to William and Mary Elmourne. She was the oldest of eleven children. She joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 19. Her first posting was to Winnipeg, MB. It was there that she met her future husband, George Dwviniczuk. George and Shirley were stationed in Halifax, Nova Scotia when I, their only child was born. Over the following years, they were posted to several military bases in Canada and Europe. Shirley was a licensed Practical Nurse until she retired in 1998. She loved nursing and truly cared for the patients. Often, she could be heard whistling while she worked. Her steps are all over the wards of Chilliwack General Hospital. Mom loved spending time with her family and especially her grandchildren, Kristin and Kyle. Her son-in-law, Harry was her go to man when she needed something done. She was a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and special friend to many. Shirley enjoyed her little spot at the Glen, sharing stories around the campfire with her friends. Later, when she was retired, Shirley loved little trips to the casinos. I would like to thank all of the friends and family that supported us during this difficult time. To VDG, you gave me strength. And, as our day once passes to the next, we will remember the final time we held you hand and said “I love you”. We will never forget you. Shirley is now in heaven because that is just where she was meant to be. So try not to cry and remember the beautiful lady that graced us with her presence. Shirley is lovingly remembered by her husband, George Dwviniczuk, daughter Doreen Dwviniczuk (Harry Faber), granddaughter Kristin Dwviniczuk, granddaughter Jackie Bovee (Dan), grandson Kyle Gero, granddaughter Julianna Faber; brothers & sisters, Catherine Sullivan, Ada Keough (Irvin), Joseph Elmourne (Lori), Edmond Elmourne, Heather Elmourne, Mary Kemkemian, George Elmourne and Doreen Elmourne. She is predeceased by her parents William Thomas and Mary Theresa Elmourne, sister Sandra McKay and brother William Elmourne. A funeral service was held on November 26, 2012 at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church with Father Santos officiating. Memorial Donations may be made in Shirley’s name to the SPCA. Online condolences may be offered at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home 45865 Hocking Avenue Chilliwack BC V2P 1B5 604-793-4555
