Contact Centre plans to open this summer Facility will help homeless, drug addicted and the mentally ill BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

F

inally, Tom McMahon has an answer for homeless clients who ask when Chilliwack’s much-talked-about Health Contact Centre will finally be open. For years, McMahon, an outreach worker with Fraser Health, has fielded questions from clients asking just when, exactly, the centre would begin taking in homeless, mentally ill and drug addicted patients. But as organizers hammered out the details over the past four years, McMahon could only respond that “It’s going to happen; we just don’t know when.” He now has a more satisfying answer. On Friday, politicians, health officials, local stakeholders, community organizers and government functionaries gathered to celebrate the start of a renovation project and the imminent opening this summer of the contact centre. The event was held in a chilly tent that, for Lee-Anne Hansen, only served to remind her of the desperated need for the new facility. “I was just thinking about the 111 homeless people,” Hansen, the centre’s future manager said. “To be homeless and to be out in this kind See CONTACT, Page 11

hilliwack New Democrats chose former Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic on Saturday as their candidate for the May 14 provincial election. MacAhonic faced off against Fraser Valley Regional District Area A director Dennis Adamson, who had previously lost to Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony for the NDP nomination for the 2012 byelection. O’Mahony was acclaimed to run again in Chilliwack-Hope on Saturday.

O’Mahony acclaimed on Saturday, making it an all-female slate in Chilliwack seeking your vote In a speech before the vote, MacAhonic expressed her belief that Chilliwack is a progressive city. “I believe that the NDP is wellpositioned to win the province,” she said. “And don’t we want Chilliwack at the table?” After MacAhonic’s speech, which drew considerable applause, Adamson, too, said he was impressed. “Wow, that was good,” he said before addressing the crowd with-

out notes and getting a little choked up. “Chilliwack families deserve better. Chilliwack families deserve the NDP.” There were about 150 people at the meeting held at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Voting took place after the speeches and the delegates chose MacAhonic. The former Chamber executive director joked about the controversial situation in which the Chamber

board told her she had to resign if she won Saturday’s nomination. “I’m officially unemployed as you all may know,” MacAhonic said after being chosen. After she spoke, O’Mahony said a few words before party leader Adrian Dix stepped up. “I think Chilliwack is NDP country,” Dix said. “I think [MacAhonic] See NDP, Page 21

Adult offenders a sign of the times This is the third in a three-part series looking at Chilliwack’s restorative justice program.

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

W

hile it has the word “youth” in its name, Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association (CRJYAA) has found itself dealing with a growing number of shoplifting adults in recent years thanks to a struggling economy. The program provides an alternative to the criminal justice system by providing community-based punishments and forcing offenders to make amends and apologize to victims for their actions. About half of all cases involve shoplifters, with the rest split between various non-violent property offences, along with minor drug possession. But despite the perception that

A different kind of justice

Jan. 8 - Redemption Jan. 15 - Success Jan. 22 - Challenges shoplifting is primarily the domain of the young, CRJYAA executive director Kim McLandress says about half of the program’s clientele now consists of adults. “Our adult clientele has increased substantially in the last four years, especially shoplifting,” McLandress said. “We have attributed that to the economic situation,” she said. “The adults are stealing more so for need, as opposed to some of the things that the youth are stealing.” She continued: “There’s some who kind of just made a bad mistake,

but a lot of it is more the economic times are really pinching them and they might be purchasing a bunch of groceries and just stealing a couple things that weren’t on their budget because they just ran out of money.” Many of those are not exactly your stereotypical offenders. For example, the program recently handled the case of an 81-year-old senior who had never been in trouble. Volunteers treat adult offenders differently than youth, McLandress said. “We have different ways of dealing with the adults,” she said. “We’re connecting them with other resources in the community . . . in the hope they won’t be put in that situation again.” On the other hand, McLandress said, youth typically do not steal because of a need. Instead, it’s often simply a way to get something for nothing. “For some reason, around the

school system in Chilliwack, the word is out there that it’s easy to get stuff for free by shoplifting,” she said, adding: “I don’t know how it’s easy because we get tons of files.” But while teens might know that stealing is wrong, breaking the law often seems easier than standing up for what is right. “A lot of the ones we see have to do with peer pressure,” McLandress said. Whether dealing with youth or adult offenders, McLandress said the program works because it punishes clients—usually in the form of community service—while at the same time giving them the tools and the self-awareness to move past their poor decisions. “A lot of people come in with a lot of shame and I think if they continue on with that shame and blame that can negatively affect their behaviour and decisions in the future,” she said.

Super retirement deal

Came down to an issue of timing BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack school district got one superintendent for the price of two for four months last year, according to a report on executive compensation released this month. The report indicates former superintendent Corinne McCabe was fully paid for four months after she retired on July 31, 2011, and while interim superintendent Michael Audet was already on the job. In total, McCabe took home more than $103,343.51 in wages, benefits and bonuses from the Chilliwack school district in 2011-12 despite having worked only one month into the fiscal year. The executive compensation report— required by the provincial government every December—indicates McCabe was paid $11,076 in salary as well as an additional $48,738.45 in wages for a “pre-retirement leave” from Aug. 1, 2011, to Nov. 30, 2011. The school board agreed to pay for the extra quarter year of wages as a matter of timing, according to secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice. McCabe had announced in May 2011 that she planned to retire effective Nov. 30, 2011, but the school board wanted a new superintendent in place by August

in time to deal with looming operational issues like teacher collective bargaining and possible teacher job action. “The parties agreed that [McCabe’s] last day of work would be July 31, as that made more sense operationally,” Carradice told the Times. “The board agreed to continue the superintendent’s salary for the balance of the retirement notice period.” In 2011-12, the former superintendent also took home a $14,400 retirement bonus (called “service recognition” in the district’s executive compensation policy), a year’s worth of vehicle allowance at $6,023.18 as well as a $2,769.23 payout for unused vaca-

tion days. Pension ($8,870.58), employer-paid CPP, EI benefit premiums and employer-paid health and welfare premiums made up the balance. Districts are required to report annually on compensation paid to chief executive officers and the next four highest paid or ranking executives who make an annual base salary of $125,000 or more. In Chilliwack, four district officials fit that bill in 2011-2012. Secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice topped the list with $161,069.36 in total compensation, a nearly $10,000 jump from last year because of changes in benefit premiums and her promotion from human resources director to secretary treasurer, she said. Assistant superintendent ArulPragasam was the district’s secondhighest earner at $155,890.38. Interim superintendent Michael Audet, who served as the district’s top exec from McCabe’s retirement at the end of July 2011 until one month after current superintendent Evelyn Novak took over in mid August, made $151,133.16 last year for 11 months on the job. Retired assistant superintendent Ruth Wiebe rounded out the list at $110,034.20, $18,477.80 of which was designated as a “retirement allowance.” ◗ To see the district report and compare Chilliwack to other B.C. school districts, visit www.fin.gov.bc.ca/psec/ disclosure/disclosure11-12.htm.

Epic court case over fishing now in its 10th year

featuring the music of

P

Patricia Kelly talked about her ongoing fight with the Crown over an illegal fishing charge at the Idle No More teach-in held at UFV in Chilliwack on Thursday. cising an inherent aboriginal right. Her defence focused on the part of the decision that found that government has a fiduciary responsibility to aboriginal peoples and there should be some “restraint on the exercise of sovereign power.” In court Monday, she compared Jensen’s behaviour as like “seeing a pit bull chasing a little poodle.” Jensen argued that the inherent adversarial setting of the courtroom may be difficult for the layperson to understand, but it does not constitute a conflict on his part. “There is no evidential basis put forward by Ms. Kelly to suggest the Crown should not continue with this prosecution,” Jensen said. Another bone of contention throughout the court appearances has been Kelly’s mug shot appearing in a June 12, 2009, Crime Stoppers advertisement in the Times. The ad said Kelly was wanted by the RCMP for “purchasing, selling and possession of fish against the fisheries act.” At the time, First Nations leaders were outraged. “How does a woman from our community become a criminal for practising her right to fish,” Grand Chief Doug

Kelly (no relation to Patricia) said in July 2009. At that time, Kelly was chair of the First Nations Fisheries Council and was on the political executive of the First Nations Summit. Sto:lo Nation president Chief Joe Hall agreed. “There’s got to be a more fair way of dealing with these issues rather than turning well-meaning and honest people into what’s being perceived as hardened criminals,” Hall said in 2009. In court Monday, Kelly brought the Crime Stoppers ad up once again as evidence she was being criminalized as part of a systemic campaign against aboriginal peoples. Jensen denied his office had anything to do with Kelly’s appearance in Crime Stoppers and maintained the charge has always been a routine fisheries act violation, never a criminal proceeding. “If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it 100 times: ‘This process criminalizes Ms. Kelly,’” Jensen said, adding, “this is not a crime.” Crabtree told Kelly he hoped to have a decision to her in writing by the middle of March. Kelly is then scheduled to appear in court May 9, 10, 13 and 14 to deal with the aboriginal rights defence.

CLASSICAL

atricia Kelly’s fight with the federal government over 396 sockeye salmon has spanned eight-anda-half years, included 200-plus court appearances and has likely cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. But neither Kelly nor the Crown will back down from a court battle that one side says is about a simple fishing violation and the other says is about the very nature of aboriginal rights and entitlement in Canada. The Sto:lo woman was charged in 2004 with “purchasing, selling and possession of fish against the fisheries act.” She pleaded not guilty and was convicted on July 3, 2008. She then put forth an aboriginal rights defence, which she has been in court trying to prove since then. Kelly appeared in Chilliwack court on Jan. 14 to apply to have Crown prosecutor Finn Jensen declared to be in a conflict of interest. Throughout, Kelly has defended herself after being rejected for legal aid in 2005 and again in 2011. She has had some assistance, including that of University of Lethbridge globalization studies professor Anthony Hall, who helped her pen a 150-page treatise, which was used as the basis for her argument in court Monday. Kelly argued to Chief Justice Thomas Crabtree that Jensen, in acting on behalf of the Government of Canada and the Crown, has had a tendency “to deny and negate, rather than recognize and affirm, the existence of aboriginal and treaty rights as stipulated by section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982.” Kelly has relied upon Sparrow, a 1990 unanimous Supreme Court of Canada decision that found when Musqueam Band member Ronald Sparrow was caught fishing with a net longer than allowed in the fisheries act he was exer-

Father, daughter to be sentenced

A

Cheam First Nations member and his daughter was to be sentenced this week for illegally fishing in a case that dates all the way back to 2005. Judge Russell MacKay ruled in November that fishing closures and restrictions in place on the Fraser in 2005 and 2006 did not infringe on the aboriginal rights of the Arthur Louis Aleck and Ashley Lee Aleck, according to a court decision recently released online. Between July 17, 2005, and July 27, 2006, the Alecks were found using drift nets on the Fraser in contravention of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) restrictions in place at the time. In court hearings that began in 2009, the Alecks—both members of the Cheam First Nation—argued that the legislation under which they were charged breached their guaranteed rights to fish under the Charter of

Charter right to fish not breached Rights and Freedoms. But MacKay found that there was no prima facie evidence that the rules breached the charter. On the first occasion, July 17, 2005, the Alecks participated in a protest fishery organized by Sto:lo Tribal Council after negotiations with DFO failed. They caught one fish. Arthur Aleck, a former member of Cheam Band Council, said that in 2005 and 2006 set fishing nets were not satisfying his family’s needs for fish because of changes in the river. The Alecks thus chose to use drift nets on several occasions when doing so was not permitted by DFO. Ashley Aleck’s lawyer Derek Birch argued the restrictions and closures— and especially rules governing fishing methods—breached his client’s rights. In his ruling, MacKay said Arthur Aleck argued that “his aboriginal rights were infringed because sports fishers

were targeting salmon from the ocean all the way up the Fraser River.” Aleck also said “the DFO could not have had any legitimate conservation concerns since there were no restrictions on sports fishers in salt water.” But prosecutor Finn Jensen said the Alecks’ illegal fishing stemmed from a desire to avoid competition from other First Nations fishermen. He said they did not break the rules simply to meet their communal right. He added that “modest” closures and equipment requirements do not infringe on aboriginal rights. In his ruling, MacKay said there was no evidence that the accused could not have met their need for fish by conforming to DFO rules. “At best,” MacKay ruled, “there is only a vague concern expressed that fishing at the same time and using the same gear as other Band members would result in need not being met.”

ited institutional support for people with it. (Huntington’s afflicts five to 10 people per 100,000, although prevalence varies widely depending on location). Clark said that more support is needed because Huntington’s often renders previously independent and successful people in their mid-50s unable to live on their own. “I think there’s more of a need for a direct connection for people and families,” she said. After being diagnosed, Sheridan told her family that she was no longer comfortable with living on her own. She lived with her sister for the last year of her life. ◗ A funeral will be held Wednesday and Clark is encouraging donations to Huntington’s Disease Research at UBC.

he Chilliwack woman who died last week after being found unresponsive on the CN tracks has been identified by her family as 54-year-old Lois Sheridan. Sheridan suffered from Huntington’s disease, a rare neurodegenerative disorder, according to Jessica Clark, Sheridan’s niece. Clark said Sheridan fell on the tracks, hit her head and went into cardiac arrest. A grandmother-of-four and an avid cook who loved to entertain, Sheridan had been diagnosed last year with Huntington’s, an incurable genetic disorder that leads to both cognitive and physical decline. Sheridan—whom Clark said was known within her family for her one-liners—had previously worked as a business administrator, but was forced to quit due to her condition. While it’s unknown why exactly Sheridan was walking beside the tracks, psychological symptoms of Huntington’s can prompt unpredictable behaviour or thoughts. While Huntington’s was first described in 1872, Clark said there is still limited public awareness of the condition and lim-

Using our evil for good for once

hen you see words like weird, disturbing, or oddball, you can be sure that the word Florida is not far off. If the 50 states were kids in elementary school, Florida would be the one who would eat a dead slug for a nickel. This week’s piece of state-wide performance art/desperate attention seeking is the 2013 Python Challenge. Florida is home to many snakes, but not all of them belong there. Burmese pythons, for example, are (you may have guessed this part) from Burma. How did they get to Florida? It’s usually a three-step process: 1) “Ooooh, look at the cute little baby snake! I’ll wear it around my neck and look like an awesome badass!” 2) “Aaaaaagggghhh! It’s strangling me again and the cost of mice is driving me crazy!” 3) “Throw it in the bushes, it’ll be fine.” In fact, Burmese pythons are doing fine in Florida. They’re doing so fine that they’re in danger of devouring all the native species of birds, mammals and reptiles that live in the Everglades. So the Python Challenge is not so much an effort to educate the public, as it is the equivalent of putting out a bounty on the squiggly, little reptiles. Florida is letting anyone who gives them $25 and takes a 30-minute course in snake identification

Be Our Guest go hunting in four wildlife parks. And there are fabulous prizes to be won! The grand prize is $1,500 for the most dead pythons, while there’s a runner-up prize of $1,000 for the biggest python. Basically, they’ve defictionalized the “Whacking Day” episode of The Simpsons. But with less Barry White music. The sad thing is. I can’t think of a better way to go about it. Really, what are people good at? Well, we’re really good at introducing exotic animals to places where they don’t belong. How do you think zebra mussels wound up in the Great Lakes, or why there’s now a thriving colony of snow monkeys in your local IKEA? We’re also good at wiping out species entirely. You can thank 17th century sailors for pre-emptively putting a halt to any dodo infestations around here! Seen any dodos getting into your trash, scaring your cat, pooping in your public parks? No, you have not. Thanks, hungry Dutch mariners! What we need to do is harness our impulse to kill everything good

and pure, and use it to counter our urge to air-drop random animals into every environment we encounter. Yes, we’re going to wipe out some species over the next few years. Shouldn’t we wipe out the species that we’re allowing to wreak havoc in the wrong environments? Finally, two wrongs really can make a right! The Python Challenge plays to some of the worst human impulses. Kill things! Make a pile of them! Get rewards for the biggest pile! In this case, it actually helps that pythons are considered scary. For this type of project to work with any other animal or plants, we’re going to have to re-name a few things. From now on, Australian rabbits are to be known as killer bucktoothed fangmonsters. Purple loosestrife will be known as the Devil’s ditchweed, and Scotch broom will be known as Scotch toxic death cloud emitter. American bullfrogs will be known as the Toronto Maple Leafs. I’ll even put my money where my mouth is. I’ll put up $50 for a prize for any group or organization that can make the heaviest pile of purple loosestrife. I’ll get back to you on the when and where, and maybe we can get the Devil’s ditchweed challenge up and running. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

ave you taken a look at the calendar lately? It’s just three weeks to go till B.C.’s first Family Day on Feb. 11. That’s right: one whole glorious day as a paid statutory holiday to spend time with our families and friends—perhaps a jaunt up to the local mountains for a bit of skiing, or a visit to the aquarium will be in order. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? And it probably will be—for some people. Like those who work in a fulltime job who qualify for a paid statutory holiday—and those whose incomes allow them to take part in extracurriculars like skiing and local attractions. But for the people juggling low-paying and part-time jobs, child care and the demands of every day life, Family Day in B.C. won’t be all that glorious. With schools closed for the day, British Columbians who still have to go to work—like the many thousands employed in the service industry—will be scrambling to find child care. We’re sure we’ll hear all about this great new addition to the provincial calendar in the lead-up to the election in May. It certainly sounds family-friendly and that seems to be a key theme for Christy Clark these days. We have long advocated that B.C. follow the lead of other provinces in creating an additional statutory holiday during this winter period—so kudos to the Liberals for having done so. But it doesn’t alleviate our concerns about how families are truly faring in this province. With so many challenges in funding for education, in the lack of access to quality child care, in services for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds, in job development, in health care access— just to name a few—it’s hard to get too excited about Family Day. As much as we’ll enjoy the extra day off work, we’d prefer to have enough funding and attention to the critical issues facing our province to make every day a good day for families in B.C.

Chamber blew a win-win situation with MacAhonic Editor: I am a little concerned with some of the tone in the letter by Dawn Ward about Patti MacAhonic having to resign as executive director of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce so that she could run as the NDP candidate in the upcoming provincial election. I understand her concerns with the situation, but Ward stated that the “only reaction I can imagine is shop out of town —take away Chamber support.” On a dollar value and number of employees working for the members, the Chamber does have the majority support of the business community. I know a few chamber members, and some of those are only members because of the business connections or opportunities they can develop. It does not necessarily reflect an active support. If you look at the actual numbers of all businesses, both big and small, you will likely find a very large number, if not a majority of local business, aren’t even members; mainly because the Chamber does not really provide any value to us smaller operations. We are hardworking people trying to provide a service in the community and should not be lumped in with the Chamber when there is talk of retaliatory action. Also, there are a lot of people in this community that work for businesses owned by Chamber members and those employees should not be punished. This action by the Chamber when it comes to MacAhonic shows just how out of step the local Chamber of Commerce is with what is going on in B.C. I have to question if the same thing would have happened if she had run for the Liberals. In the past the parties on the right of the political spectrum have claimed that the NDP doesn’t understand business. Adrian Dix has said he is willing to listen, and owners of big business are not only sitting down and talking to him, they

are attending fund raising events and contributing money to the party in amounts never seen before. They can see the writing on the wall and they know it is better to make friends with the NDP if they want to be heard after the next election. The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce blew it here. They had a chance to place themselves in a win-win situation no matter which party won locally. All they had to do was issue a release stating that while they don’t support the NDP they do support the electoral process and would give her the needed leave of absence. No matter which party won the riding, the Chamber would have had someone that would listen to them. MacAhonic must understand business, since these people hired her and if she won she could give a business perspective to the premier. Polls have shown that the majority of women support the NDP and they are not going to be happy with this situation and neither will be some people who believe in fair play. It is going to be a very tight race in both Chilliwack ridings and this just might be enough to get not only MacAhonic elected, but also let Gwen O’Mahony get re-elected. It was the women’s vote that cost the Republicans the Presidential election. We grumpy old white guys are in the minority now, and some of us are going to have to start doing things differently in the future if we want our voices heard. John Pritchard Chilliwack

Don’t need to be an expert Editor: My father was an Air Canada mechanic for more than 30 years. He had no university education. Over a decade ago one of his sons, a vice-president of a provincial hydro Crown Corporation, was showing him the new towers to support hydro lines. My father commented “they are going to fall over.” “No they’re not,” replied his son with all confidence in the professionals’ expert in these matters. Those using anticipartation (new word) know the towers fell over. Do people need qualifications to express opinions, challenge proposals or actions? I thank Sheila Muxlow for her actions challenging Kinder Morgan’s proposal. G.E. MacDonell are you volunteering to join the challenge? Dianne Rose Chilliwack

Henderson did his job properly Editor: Re: “Need to be more precise, letters to the editor, Times, Jan. 17. In his letter, G.E. MacDonell comments on Paul Henderson’s article about Kinder Morgan’s expansion plans and the oil spill of one year ago at the Abbotsford tank farm. MacDonell stresses the importance of

neutral wording in articles. It is important to be factual. Residents were concerned about Kinder Morgan’s repeated assertions that the spill had been “quickly contained.” This was clearly proven false by the National Energy Board investigation. Hours went by before the spill was responded to by the company. As MacDonell notes, the spill was the result of human error—to be precise, a string of human errors. He states: “There were a number of minor and more serious operational errors made that Kinder Morgan subsequently attended to . . . .” Here MacDonell falls into the same difficulty with neutral wording. It would be more factual to say: “. . . operational errors that Kinder Morgan says it has attended to.” Pipeline companies often are at pains to say that they have “fixed the problem” or “increased security measures” or “intend to build a new and safer pipeline.” Sometimes such statements are not borne out by subsequent events. For example, in 2010, Trans Canada Pipelines said that the Keystone Pipeline was built to “meet or exceed all safety standards.” However, the line had twelve spills in its first year of operation. MacDonell implies that a spill of 110,000 litres of crude oil is trivial (an amount that “would fill an average backyard swimming pool”). I think he is missing the point. This particular spill apparently did not get into the water supply, though, for reasons given above, I am hesitant to rely on the company’s word on this. Even a much smaller amount, were it to get into the drinking water supply of a Fraser Valley community or into a salmon bearing river or stream, would be toxic and, potentially, fatal to humans or wildlife. Similarly, the product spilled (BC Light, a volatile sour crude), caused more than just a “‘nuisance’ odor.” Newspaper reports after the spill indicated that

children complained of headaches and nausea. The school’s air handling system was shut down. While the level of exposure was less than the 2010 tar sands spill in Marshall, Mich., the effects were similar. In the Michigan spill, children and seniors experienced headaches, nausea and vomiting and over 200 people were hospitalized. The odor was hydrogen sulphide, a gas that is lethal in high doses. In the last part of his letter, MacDonnel falls into the logical fallacy of ad hominem—he attacks Sheila Muxlow personally, calling into question her

qualifications. Surely one doesn’t need an engineering degree to comment on the threat of tar sands pipelines. Members of the public, MacDonnel, Muxlow and myself included, have every right to comment on the actions and proposals of these companies. I should add that the PIPE UP Network tries hard to get the facts and to educate ourselves and our communities about the realities of pipelines. We commend Paul Henderson for contributing to this education. Michael Hale, member of the PIPE UP network Yarrow

Futurist speaks on value of a degree

A

lthough not as famous as Alvin Toffler, Herb O’Heron is Canada’s own educational futurist. Working with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), as director of research and policy analysis, he analyzes statistics and trends in education and makes predictions for the future of post-secondary education in Canada. O’Heron will be providing his insights on the value of a degree as part of the President’s Leadership Lecture series on Monday, Jan. 28 at 4:30 p.m. in Building A, Room 225 (boardroom) at the Abbots-

ford campus. He is the first speaker in UFV president Mark Evered’s Leadership Lecture Series for the 2013 calendar year. “Herb will be speaking to the value of a degree to an individual and the value of a university to the community” said Evered. “This speaker is a great fit with the goal of the leadership series to bring speakers that challenge and provoke discussion at the university and in the community.” Universities across Canada have experienced tremendous growth over the last

30 years. Since 1980 the number of fulltime university students has more than doubled, while part-time enrolment is up 16 percent, according to AUCC’s Trends in Higher Education publication. This free educational lecture is open to members of the community as well as students, alumni, faculty and staff of the university. ◗ Information on the President’s Lecture Series and other public events is available on the UFV website www.ufv.ca or by email at betsy.terpsma@ufv.ca or by telephone at 604 854-4503.

Museum buys back medals BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

vital set of war medals given to one of Chilliwack’s pioneering families will soon return to the Fraser Valley. Last month, the Chilliwack Museum and Historical Society bought a collection of 12 military medals belonging to Lt.-Col. Andrew Leslie Coote and his son, Capt. Ian Vernon Coote. The collection included a written account of the wartime experiences of Andrew Coote’s second son, Lieut. Russel Leslie Coote. The collection was bought at auction for $3,190 (2,000 UK pounds). The Cootes owned an East Chilliwack farm at the beginning of the 20th Century and gave their name to Coote Street. The military career of Andrew Leslie Coote began prior to the First World War and continued for several decades. Among other medals, both Andrew Leslie and his son Ian were named Officers of the Order of the British Empire (OBE). Chilliwack Museum director Ron Denman said the new collection will “be front and centre” in a large exhibit planned for next year to commemorate the start of the Second World War.

“They’re important because they come from a family that arrived in Chilliwack in 1890,” Denman said. “We’re very excited because they represent a military career that really started before The First World War with Leslie Coote and ended after the Second World War. So there’s a huge time frame there. “We know the Coote family’s history and to have an intact collection from both father and son is very unusual and is what prompted us to follow up on this one.” The elder Coote—who was in London for the Blitz—was honoured with an OBE for helping organize a home defence militia in British Columbia. The younger was recognized for outstanding administrative duties. Denman said the museum became aware of the medals on Dec. 10, just seven days before they were set to go up for auction. Without the resources to buy the set, Denman reached out to the Department of Canadian Heritage, which he said was “absolutely wonderful” in helping the museum quickly secure $1,863 to help bring the collection back to Canada. (The medals had been located in Norfolk, England. Ian Coote, whom Denman believes inherited his father’s medals, had remained in Britain following the war.)

And to think that we have a centre that is going to answer them not only [with a variety of ] services . . . but a warm place to go to, I think that is absolutely amazing.” The health contact centre is billed as a one-stop shop for care for homeless, mentally ill and addicted people. It will include 22 supportive housing apartments, along with a broad range of health and community support services. Pacific Community Resources Society (PCRS) will manage the housing component and jointly deliver the services with Fraser Health. The provincial government is contributing nearly $3.4 million for the building’s renovations, along with about $230,000 to operate the facility’s residential side. Funding also came from the City of Chilliwack, PCRS, the Real Estate Foundation of B.C. and

Mould, funding delayed building BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

common theme running through Friday’s celebration of the start of construction on Chilliwack’s new health contact centre was just how long it took for construction to begin on the “one-stop shop” for mentally ill, addicted and homeless people. When the centre finally opens its doors this summer, it will welcome visitors nearly two years after organizers’ first planned to be in operation. And although proponents first had aimed for a September 2011 opening, the project only received final project commitment last month, according to a BC Housing response to a Freedom of Information request. The centre, which includes 22 beds of affordable housing along with health and social services, also won’t be quite as large as organizers had once hoped. While it’s never been made public, Pacific Community Resources Society (PCRS) approached Fraser Health in 2011 to ask for funding for 10 additional beds. The beds would be housed in a proposed 4,600-square-foot addition. However, Fraser Health turned down PCRS’s request. Naomi Brunemeyer, manager of regional development at BC Housing, wrote that “the vision of the project eventually was scaled back to include 22 units of affordable

housing, some programming space and the Health Contact Centre.” The funding issues weren’t the only cause of delay. According to Brunemeyer, “mould and extensive hazardous mater ials” were found in the building. The issues were not known when the building was purchased and “caused some delay in approvals.” The present vision of the health contact centre was only given preliminary approval in October 2012. “BC Housing committed additional capital and operating funding to make the project work, as did Fraser Health,” Brunemeyer wrote. Lee-Anne Hansen, the centre’s future manager, said there had been many times over the previous four years when she thought the project might not happen. “It’s almost surreal,” she said, “because for many days and nights I wondered if it would ever happen. And today the baby was born.” Chilliwack MLA John Les— who is retiring in the spring— had similar thoughts. “I was wondering if this was actually going to happen in my term of office,” he said. And Mayor Sharon Gaetz added that “What looks very easy on paper sometimes isn’t easy in practicalities.” A f t e r h e a r i n g s e v e ra l speakers compare the long, difficult planning process to the unsightliness of cooking sausage, Gaetz said: “Today, we have beautiful sausage about to be cooked.”

A four-year-old Luke Esposito tangles with uncle Mark Messier.

While the return of the National Hockey League (NHL) poses more competition for junior leagues, its return also highlights the success of more than two-dozen BCHL grads. Team 1040 colour guy Brian Wiebe (www.briansbanter.com) has counted 28 former BCHLers on NHL opening day rosters. They include former Chief Shawn Horcoff. The Colorado Avalanche boast four former BCHLers. Ottawa and Vernon each have three.

The Province/FILE

O

ne of the first times Chilliwack Chiefs star Luke Esposito made an appearance in a British Columbia newspaper, he was tussling with a hockey legend at an NHL all-star game. Being Mark Messier’s nephew can create unique sets of circumstances. The offspring of Messier’s sister Mary-Kay has turned into a legitimate pro prospect, it seems. After last weekend’s games in Prince George, the 19-year-old Esposito, from Greenwich, Conn., was second in the Junior A loop in scoring, with 55 points, including 14 goals, in 40 games. He’s also already committed

to play next year for the Harvard University Crimson, the famed Ivy League team from Cambridge, Mass. To think we knew him when. Go back in the files of The Province and you can find a four-year-old Luke getting checked by Uncle Mark during the 1998 NHL all-star game festivities at GM Place. You can find another shot of a two-year-old Luke after a Team Canada practice in Whistler prior to the 1996 World Cup. And how about this cutline that appeared in the Edmonton Journal to go with a picture from that 1998

all-star appearance? It read: “In a game of shinny, our money is on the little guy with the big future. Luke Esposito, four-year-old nephew of Mark Messier, shows Uncle Moose some stick-handling skills during a break at the all-star bash on Saturday.” “He’s been there all throughout,” said Esposito, whose family lives about five minutes from Messier in Greenwich. “When I was picking places to play, he was there. He’s helped my grandpa coach a number of my teams when I was younger. “He’s been great for me.”

Hockey folk automatically wonder if the 5-foot-10, 180 pounder is related to Phil and Tony Esposito, which he’s not. They eventually find out that he’s part of the Messier clan and he maintains that it’s not added pressure, explaining instead: “I look at it as a great opportunity to talk to him. I use my uncle, and my grandpa, too, as a resource.” He does flip-flop on that a little, though, when pushed. “I like to show that I can actually play,” he said. “I like to prove that I See ESPOSITO, Page 16

here’s nothing like a diet of Prince George Spruce Kings to get the Chilliwack Chiefs back on a winning foot. The Chiefs beat Prince George by identical 4-2 scorelines Friday and Saturday to regain top spot in the Mainland Division and post back-to-back wins for the first time since mid-December. The Chiefs are now 5-0 in games against the Spruce Kings this year, with Mitch Gillam allowing just six goals in those contests. Gillam was the key Friday, as Prince George pounded 48 shots at the Chilliwack netminder but could only muster the two goals. Philip Zielonka, Spencer Graboski and Brandon Volpe all beat Prince George goalie Kirk Thompson and Austin Plevy added a late empty-netter. The next evening followed the exact same script as the previous night, although Gillam was less busy. Again Zielonka opened the scoring for the Chiefs. Again the Spruce Kings tied the game. And again the Chiefs responded and held a 3-1 lead late into the third period. Prince George again made the game close with a goal in the last five minutes, but an empty-net goal again sealed the victory for the away side. Zielonka finished Saturday’s game with a pair of goals and now has five in as many games since being acquired by the Chiefs at the trade deadline. Josh Hansen also scored his first since returning from injury and Luke Esposito rounded out the

Chilliwack Chief David Thompson, and Prince George Spruce King Lyndon Martell, battle as Mitch Gillam saves a shot Saturday night at the Coliseum in Prince George. Chiefs’ scoring with the empty-netter. While the Spruce Kings have improved since being shut out by the Chiefs in back-to-back games earlier in the year, Gillam and his defence continue to frustrate their division rivals. “That’s three games in a row we’ve outplayed them and have only got one point out of it so it’s really frustrating,” said Spruce Kings head coach Dave Dupas, referring to a 3-2 overtime loss in Chilliwack earlier in the month. “We have to find ways to beat the goaltender. You can’t fault the guys for the effort they put

in all weekend. They had a great series but just lost two hard-fought games.” Dupas also found himself ruing his team’s luck against the Chiefs. “It seems it happens every time they come in here,” Dupas said. “[Friday] night it hits a defenceman’s stick then it hits him on the head and then went bar down and in. [Saturday] a guy misses the net, the puck bounces over the net and hits Kirk [Thompson] in the back and sits on the goal line and they’re standing See CHIEFS, Page 16

A Victoria Grizzlies player has filed a complaint with the West Shore RCMP following an incident involving Chiefs assistant coach Brandon Fleenor.

BY MARIO ANNICCHIARICO AND CINDY E. HARNETT Victoria Times-Colonist,

V

ictoria-area Mounties have opened an investigation into the actions of Chilliwack Chiefs assistant coach Brandon Fleenor at the end of a Jan. 12 British Columbia Hockey League game. Victoria Grizzlies defenceman Chris Albertini filed a complaint with West Shore RCMP in which he alleged Fleenor “flung a hockey stick at him, striking him in the side of his head.” Albertini, who was not playing during the game, was standing between the benches when tempers flared in the game’s last minute. “I reported it to the police, but nothing has officially come of it. I have filed a complaint,” Albertini told the Victoria Times-Colonist. “There is no room for that in hockey, for a coach to lose his temper like that.” West Shore RCMP spokeswoman Kathy Rochlitz confirmed Thursday that police are in the “initial stages of an investigation.” Albertini, a 20-year-old native of Hampton, Ont., admitted to “chirping” at the Chilliwack bench late in the game. He said he was struck as Fleenor flung the stick at him in a “spear-fishing” motion. The events, which took place with roughly 10 seconds remaining in the game, began a chain reaction of hostility between the play-

ers, who were violently pushing on the glass that separates the visitors’ bench from the hosts. The incident was caught on tape by Grizzlies’ videographer Roy Anthonisen, who posted it online. The video has since been taken down. During the final moments of the Jan. 12 game, Grizzlies general manager and head coach Bill Bestwick left the bench to attempt to gain control of his players. He was given a game misconduct at the time. At the final whistle, a brawl erupted on the ice. Fleenor has been suspended indefinitely by the British Columbia Hockey League. Six players from each team were also disciplined. Chiefs Matthieu Tibbet, Jaret Babych and David Thompson were handed onegame suspended for participating in an altercation at the end of the game. Chiefs forward Tanner Cochrane was suspended two games for provoking an incident from the players bench and for leaving the bench to participate in an altercation. Chiefs defenceman Shay Laurent was suspended four games for participating in two separate fights after the game had ended. And Chiefs forward Trevor Hills was handed a four-game ban for initiating and provoking a pair of altercations at the end of the game and for participating in a fight.

Cascades flat against Prairie clubs

T

he top-ranked University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) Cascades women’s basketball teams dropped both games during a disappointing road trip to Alberta last weekend. The Cascades—who entered the weekend with an 11-1 record—fell 79-69 in overtime to the Prairie Division-leading University of Calgary (UC) Dinos Friday night. The Cascades also lost the following night 64-59 to the mediocre University of Lethbridge Pronghorns. Played in a playoff-like atmosphere, Friday’s game against the Dinos was a tight contest, with the teams trading baskets and leads. But after keeping

the scoreline tight, the UC shooters found their touch and completed all five of their shots in overtime to take a 10-point lead. Chilliwack’s Kayli Sartori led all Cascades with 19 points. Sarah Wierks added 16 points and pulled down a team-high 15 rebounds. Cascades head coach AlTuchscherer wasn’t satisfied with his team’s performance on the night. “We didn’t match Calgary’s energy or determination tonight,” Tuchscherer said.“Give them full credit for taking that game away from us.We have a lot to learn about teams coming after us and rising to the occasion.” The Cascades, though, didn’t

respond well to the loss and lost to the Pronghorns the following night. Lethbridge jumped out to a quick start and built an early lead in the first quarter. The Cascades rebounded, however, and had built an eight-point lead by the end of the third quarter. But with starter Aieisha Luyken in foul trouble and on the bench for much of the last quarter, the Cascades saw their lead slip away. The Pronghorns tied the game with four minutes remaining and found themselves ahead by five at the end. Luyken led UFV in scoring with 19 points. Sarah Wierks posted 16 points and another 14 rebounds, while sister Nicole added 14 points.

CHIEFS, from page 13 there to tap it in. I don’t know what you can do about those things but the fact of the matter is when there’s a loose puck laying there they tap it.” Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl, meanwhile, was pleased with his team’s defensive play over the weekend. “I think we did a lot of good things,” Smyl said. “I thought we really played well defensively [and] limited their shots to the perimeter.” With Gillam having proven himself one of the league’s best goaltenders, Smyl said that if his team can keep opponents to the outside, their goalie will usually do the rest.

Limited shots

Serving suspensions later The Chiefs were without forwards Tanner Cochrane and Trevor Hills, along with defenceman Shay Laurent due to suspensions handed down by the BCHL following the previous weekend’s post-game brawl against the Victoria Grizzlies. Matthieu Tibbet, Jaret Babych and David Thompson were all handed one-game bans, but all three played last weekend as the Chiefs can choose to have them serve their suspensions later, when Cochrane, Hills and Laurent have returned.

Grandpa knew Smyl ESPOSITO, from page 12 am not in the spot I am because of my uncle.” His grandpa, more commonly known as Doug Messier, did have a role in him picking the Chiefs, for what it’s worth. In the midst of putting up 14 goals and 47 points in 29 games with his Brunswick Prep high school team in Greenwich last year, Esposito heard from a couple of universities—including Harvard —that he might be better off spending a campaign in Junior A and steered him

toward the BCHL. The family began doing research. Doug had coached longtime Chilliwack bench boss Harvey Smyl when he was playing junior. Everything was logical. “My grandpa knew what kind of player Harv was and what kind of guy he was,” said Esposito. “It’s great playing for him. He knows what this league is all about. He knows what it takes to win. Having him out in front is a benefit to all of us.”

Transforming Trauma: How to do this Work and Not Completely Lose Our Minds with Laura van Dernoot Lipsky The Trauma Stewardship Institute is committed to raising awareness and responding to the cumulative toll on those who are exposed to the suffering, hardship, crisis, or trauma of humans, living beings, or the planet itself. Our daily lives are filled with witnessing trauma and suffering. As a community member, front line worker, professional, or caregiver, do you find you: • are anxious or nervous for no apparent reason? • worry about things that have not happened? • have sleepless nights? • are drained by daily interactions? • avoid conversations due to fear? • feel overwhelmed? • forget or feel you don’t deserve to take care of yourself? Then this is a day you must experience!!! Laura van Dernoot Lipsky will offer a compelling mix of personal insight, cutting edge research, and humor to help us understand the cumulative toll of being exposed to suffering over time and gain concrete skills to reconcile it. Participants are welcome from all professional disciplines and life circumstances. We are pleased to offer Continuing Education Credit for those who request it: CEUs for all disciplines (i.e. legal, medical, social work, etc.)

COMEDY

The Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society Presents

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

The arguable highlight of the NDP nomination meeting on Saturday was, while waiting for votes to be tallied, when 100-year-old Jean Scott commandeered Rollie Keith to help her lead the room in a rousing rendition of O Canada.

and Gwen are going to make an extraordinary team of NDP candidates in Chilliwack.” MacAhonic will face off against BC Liberal candidate John Martin who finished third in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection last spring running for the BC Conservatives. Martin lost to O’Mahony who has represented the riding in Victoria since then. O’Mahony will face off against BC Liberal Laurie Throness whom she beat to win the seat in the 2012 byelection. Asked how strategy might shift in Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope if the BC Conservatives don’t come up with viable candidates, Dix said the notion of vote-splitting on the right is an insult to voters. “I think it’s so disrespectful to the voters,” Dix said. “As if the 68 per cent of people who chose not to vote for the Liberals in the byelection, if they were given fewer choices would somehow have rallid to the govenment side? I don’t think that’s the case. I think you

Vote-splitting notion an insult have to respect how people are going to vote.” In the 2012 Chilliwack-Hope byelection, O’Mahony received 6,022 votes, Throness 4,593 and Martin 3,615. Premier chats with women Christy Clark will be in Chilliwack on Thursday but if any men want to have a word with the Premier they’ll be out of luck. In fact, Chilliwack MLA John Les, candidates John Martin and Laurie Throness aren’t invited either. As for local politicians, you can bet Mayor Sharon Gaetz and Coun. Sue Attrill will get invitations but Couns. Chuck Stam, Ken Huttema, Ken Popove, Jason Lum and Stewart McLean will certainly not. That’s because Clark will be in town as part of her ongoing provincewide tour where she meets with groups of women only. At some of the meetings—Vernon for

example in December—Clark has been introduced by a local male MLA who then left the room. Not dead yet The BC Conservatives promised candidates would be announced mid-January for the Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope constituencies. But there was no sign of a name until Jan. 21 when the Chilliwack-Hope constituency association announced that local realtor Michael Henshall had submitted his nomination package for that riding. In a press release issued Monday, the party announced it was accepting nominations until Jan. 31 for Chilliwack-Hope and the candidate would be chosen at a Feb. 9 meeting. Nomination forms are available by emailing chwk.hope.BCCP@gmail.com. There has been no sign of life from any BC Conservatives in the Chilliwack riding.

ANNIS, Brian

Brian Graham Annis passed away January 12, 2013 peacefully at home. Born in Burnaby, Brian lived in Chilliwack most of his life, growing up playing hockey, Jr. A and WHL. He was the tough guy. He worked with his father and mother at Annis Pools for many years, tough work but enjoyed the sun. Since then he worked in fire protection and construction of many types. Most recently M&M Excavating, the guys will miss ‘Dad’. His vast knowledge made him indispensable in always getting things right. He was well respected in the community. He will be greatly missed by his entire family but especially his ‘Girls’, wife Samantha Annis (Hughes), step mom Audree Annis, daughters Melissa Annis, Nicole Annis and Devan Annis and his five beautiful grandchildren Madison Harvey, Aiden Harvey, Kayel McLean, River McLean and Kaitlyn Brown. He’s predeceased by his father Graham Annis and his mother Evelyn Annis (Watmough). He had a great many friends over the years, the kind of guy who would give you his shirt off his back if you needed it. All are welcome to attend a ‘Celebration of Life’ for Brian at the Masonic Hall, 45905 Hocking Avenue, Chilliwack on Sunday January 27, 2013 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. In lieu flowers please make a donation to Canuck Place at www.canuckplace.org Online condolences to the family may be made to www.wiebeandjeskefh.com Wiebe & Jeske Funeral Services - 604.824.1234
