Spring break remains one week BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

or the second year in a row, efforts to carve out a twoweek spring break for the Chilliwack school district have failed because negotiations between district officials and local teachers and CUPE employees ran out of time. The school board will now vote on a single, one-week spring break option for the 2013-14 school year

School district, CTA fail for the second straight year to reach an agreement on length of holiday Tuesday. There was “significant dialogue” with the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association and CUPE around a second, two-week option that would see minutes added to the school day, but a “satisfactory agreement could not be reached” in time to present that option to the board for next

year, according to a staff report in Tuesday’s agenda. According to legislation passed last spring, school boards have to make their proposed school calendars public one month before submitting them to the education ministry to give parents and employees a chance to comment.

This year that deadline is Feb. 28. The district ran out of time last year too when it tried to find a way to extend this year’s break and connect it to the Easter holidays, which are only four days later. An electronic survey showed 83 per cent of 2,421 respondents (mostly parents) favoured a two-week

break, so the board directed staff to try to work out a plan with the CTA and CUPE and to pursue a longterm plan for a two-week spring vacation every year. But those negotiations were stymied by the “bookends” stipulated in the CTA’s collective agreement. According to that contract, days in the local school year have to be scheduled between the Tuesday after Labour Day and the last See BREAK, Page 6

he Fraser Health Authority’s (FHA) chief medical health officer should expect a large, passionate group at the public meeting to discuss water chlorination Tuesday evening. Dr. Paul Van Buynder will be at the Chilliwack Alliance Church Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. to discuss the controversial water chlorination edict that the city was given three weeks ago. Chilliwack’s drinking water comes from the Sardis/Vedder aquifer, a source of high-quality water that has never been treated. Mayor Sharon Gaetz has accused the FHA of fear-mongering and has defended the drinking water system against criticism after three isolated cases of E. coli were detected in hillside reservoirs since 2009. The FHA medical health officer first on the file, Dr. Marcus Lem, came to city council on Feb. 5 and, among other things, has said the city

Running a business next to a legal marijuana grow op Most of the names in this story have been changed or omitted so as not to identify the location of the medicinal marijuana grow operations in question. BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

A Growing Conflict

im and John Smith are used to strange looks from sniffing customers at their Chilliwack business. On a recent visit by the Times, John walked from the small storefront office to the back of his 2,000-square-foot operation. He turned on an industrial fan needed for his work. Within minutes the room filled with the unmistakable smell of marijuana. The problem, which has consumed the couple for four years, is that their business neighbours have a medicinal marijuana grow operation, one that is about to more than double in size. “It absolutely reeks,” Kim says of the constant odour. “And he is not operating his full licence yet.” The Smiths’ business is run out of a two-unit commercial strata building in an area of the city zoned light industrial. What baffles them is that there was no consultation before someone was allowed to grow marijuana on the other side of a shared wall. “We had no say in the matter,” Kim said. A Health Canada bureacrat told the Smiths the medical marijuana program refers to property ownership, but does “not differentiate between types of buildings such as semi-detached, apartment or stand alone.” Kim has a thick binder of letters, emails and newspaper clippings she has amassed since 2009, when the neighbour first informed the Smiths that he was a designated grower with more than 100 plants. As part of Health Canada’s medi-

Part 1 - Fighting medicinal marijuana’s growth in commercial zones Part 2 - Use of farm land for future growth of pot industry is a major concern cal marijuana access regulations (MMAR), there are two types of growing licences: personal use production licences (PUPL) and designated person production licences (DPPL). There are 513 PUPLs in Chilliwack and 77 DPPLs as of Feb. 18, according to Health Canada. That is more than triple the number of legal marijuana growers in Chilliwack from a year ago. Feb. 28 is the deadline Health Canada has set to comment on its proposed changes to the MMAR. Under those proposed changes, all growing will be removed from residential areas, but there is some uncertainty over where the growing will now be allowed. Mayor Sharon Gaetz has been vocal in her concern about medicinal marijuana growing in Chilliwack and where the operations are located. “This is a huge issue, it’s neverending,” Gaetz said. “This is just one of the examples of the conflicts in neighbourhoods. . . . The problem is that we haven’t had consultation about where grows shall go. If I want to put a duplex in, I have public hearings and neighbours are invited out. Growing marijuana is a big industrial business.” And so it should be restricted to industrial areas, according to Gaetz. The mayor may get her way as the proposed changes mean municipalities will get a say. “Decisions regarding zoning and the location of businesses fall under the

A binder contains four years of correspondence and clippings one local business owner has amassed trying to deal with a medicinal marijuana grow op next door. jurisdiction of local governments,” a Health Canada spokesperson told the Times via email. “The proposed regulations do not stipulate where licensed producers should be located, but do ensure that municipalities are aware of the location of production sites in their communities. “Furthermore, licensed producers would be required to notify their local government, local police force and local fire officials of their intention to apply to Health Canada.” This still doesn’t answer the Smiths’ question of whether or not the grow operation next to them will have to move when changes come into effect April 1, 2014. The Smiths’ shared cinderblock building has basic drywall dividing the two units. Given their neighbour’s security measures, the easiest way for anyone to break in to steal the plants is through the Smiths’ door and through the wall between the units. While complaints about such situations are common, municipalities, fire departments and even the police say in many cases their hands are tied because of privacy issues surrounding medicinal marijuana. But Health Canada says if there is suspected criminal activity at a grow operation, people should call the RCMP. And bylaw, fire and electrical inspections are out of its area of authority. While changes are coming, there is much uncertainty and Kim feels no one is listening. Four years ago she complained to then MP Chuck Strahl, who directed her to Health Canada. Then last week she cancelled a meeting planned with current MP Mark Strahl because she was only given 30 minutes, not nearly enough time to outline her concerns, she said. “It started with Chuck Strahl,” she

said. “I have written so many letters and emails and have not received answers. . . . It’s been one deaf ear after another.” On the other side of the issue, some of those who hold designated grower licences and some who hold personal use licences have made significant monetary investments in their operations only to now have the federal government pull the rug out from under them. Jason Wilcox has suffered from a terminal illness for 20 years and relies on his personal production of cannabis to relieve his suffering. Wilcox is the CEO of the newly formed MMAR Coalition Against Repeal, and he said the proposed changes will trample patient rights. Wilcox said fear-mongering and a few cases of illegal behaviour have spoiled it for the 28,000-or-so people in the country licensed to use marijuana for health conditions. “We all do our best to comply,” Wilcox told the Times. “It’s just like drivers who speed. We’ve had a few bad apples that the media tacks on to and the Conservatives want to throw it in our face.” On Dec. 16, 2012, Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq announced the proposed changes and said that the current regulations “have left the system open to abuse.” When contacted by the Times, the owners of the unit adjacent to the Smiths declined to be interviewed. When asked about the expanded grow operation the owner asked why the Times was focused on that address in particular when there are so many others in Chilliwack, even in the same neighbourhood. ◗ See the Thursday Times for a look at residential medicinal marijuana growing in a rural area in the ALR.

Satisfied with special ed BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

P

arents of local special needs students are satisfied “overall” with special education programs in the Chilliwack school district, but they are far from unanimous, according to a 36-page report by consultant David Carter. Carter, who was hired in April to review the district’s special education services after vocal complaints from some parents and one staff member at public school board meetings last year, will present his findings to the school board tonight (Tuesday). Based on 82 20-minute interviews with 116 special-needs parents and a 291-parent survey, Carter’s report concludes more parent are satisfied with School District No. 33 special education programs than not. “Many parents went out of their way to come in to state their satisfaction with services and to single out staff, schools and programs by name,” writes Carter. “Some other parents were not at all satisfied and were able to articulate their reasons.” After each interview, Carter asked parents to rate their overall satisfaction with district services on a scale of one to 10—“where one is a ‘train wreck’ and 10 is ‘perfection.’” More than 45 per cent rated their satisfaction as high, while about 20 per cent rated it as low; about a third were in the middle.

District staff had proposed moving some of the teachers’ professional development days into the summer, but teachers wouldn’t budge, proposing instead to add minutes to the school day to make a two-week break possible—something the board had directed staff not to do.

Teachers have since voted on the issues but Johnston wouldn’t say what the results were. He did say the CTA would use the information to prepare for what he hopes will be ongoing discussion about next year’s calendar.

“Next time this comes around, it won’t be a rush to find out what [teachers] think,” Johnston said. “We’ll have a wellthought-out, well-presented process.” In an email to the Times, superintendent Evelyn Novak reiterated the conclusion of the report in Tuesday’s agenda, saying the district is committed to ongoing discussions with its employee groups to come up with a two-week spring break option for the 2014-15 school year. ◗ Tonight’s (Tuesday’s) regular public school board meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the school district office (8430 Cessna Dr.).

Expecting a large turnout for Tuesday’s meeting, Gaetz said the city chose the biggest venue they could find at Chilliwack Alliance Church. City staff have been back and forth

with the FHA and asked if chlorination of the hillside areas could be done considering there has never been a case of E. coli detected in the main distribution system that serves 97 per cent of the city. ◗ The FHA meeting is scheduled for Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. at Chilliwack Alliance Church.

Substation blaze last year’s biggest BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

L

ast year started with a bang for Chilliwack firefighters as a massive blaze at BC Hydro’s Atchelitz substation resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, an oil leak and power outages across the city. The Chilliwack Fire Department (CFD) responded to 343 fires in 2012, up from 270 in 2011 and 299 in 2010, but down from the 389 in 2009 and 357 in 2008, according to the annual fire report presented to city council last week.

Overall the CFD faced 2,260 calls for service, which resulted in 12 fire-related injuries and fire losses totalling $4.6 million, according to Chief Rick Ryall. Of those total losses, $3.9 million (85 per cent) was the result of residential fires. Last year saw the highest number of emergency medical aid and public service responses over the last five years, while there were fewer burning complaints and hazardous material calls since 2008. The 12 fire-related injuries in 2012, including one firefighter, were the fewest in the last seven years. The highest num-

ber since 2006 was in 2007 when there were 22. The CFD budget of $5.19 million in 2012 was a 7.5 per cent increase from $4.8 million in 2011. That’s a per capita increase from $58.54 per person in 2011 to $62.70 in 2012. The leading causes of fires in Chilliwack in 2012, in descending order, were: cooking, arson, smoking materials and electrical. Other numbers from the report for 2012: 49 vehicle fires (resulting in a dollar loss), 34 dumpster fires and 199 burning complaints.

Big space rocks a cool way out

I

’ve now decided how I want to die. I want to be killed by a meteorite. Recently, a big chunk of rock and/or metal slammed through the sky above Russia, blasting out windows and injuring thousands. While this is, of course, a terrible tragedy, at least it’s one with some grandeur. It’s no petty sink hole or flood, it’s death from space! Unfortunately, my best chance for being killed by a meteorite happened more than a century ago. It was also in Russia, as it happens, in a remote region of Sibera known as Tunguska. The Tunguska Event may not technically have been a meteorite (which hits the ground in at least one piece) but it was definitely a meteor (which flies through the sky, leaving a visible trail). In fact, it was visible across a vast swathe of Asia and Europe. Observers at the time, who included officials and townspeople hundreds of miles away, and tribal reindeer herders much closer, described the event variously as being shoved around by a mysterious force, a sound of artillery and underground trains, hot winds, thunder, and the sensation that the ground was being hit by large rocks. That was in 1908, and it wasn’t until the early 1920s that Soviet scientists managed to hack their way through hundreds of miles of

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest boggy forest to find the site of the blast. What they found was massive devastation: a core of scorched trees (superstitiously avoided by the locals) surrounded by about 2,000 square kilometres of fallen trees. No single piece of a meteorite from the Tunguska Event has ever been found, which has inspired suggestions that perhaps something other than mere space rocks were to blame. Actual cause of the Tunguska Event: probably a sizeable meteor that exploded in midair, unleashing an atomic-bomb sized blast. Proposed causes: ◗ Tiny black hole tunneling through Earth. ◗ Alien spacecraft, either crashing, blowing up, or getting royally pissed off at a reindeer and deciding to zap Rudolf. ◗ Wandering chunk of anti-matter hitting the upper atmosphere. Shame it didn’t land on Dan Brown. ◗ Nikola Tesla. The last is my favourite explanation, because it lets me use the

phrase “death ray.” Tesla, who invented alternating current and was thus also partially responsible for the greatest Australian rock band of all time, had built a sizeable tower just before 1908, to be used for transmitting radio waves, and, you know, vast amounts of electricity through the air. Then in the 1930s he started talking up his plans for an anti-aircraft gun based on shooting charged particles, blab blah blah physics blah blah DEATH RAY! He was completely serious about this. However, in his later years it was hard to tell whether he was still a brilliant, madcap inventor or just mad. The man’s pigeon fixation was getting pretty bad by then. So it’s fairly unlikely that he created the Tunguska Event. Anyway, Tunguska wasn’t the biggest meteor to blast a hole in the planet, not by a long shot. Everyone knows about the dinosaur killer, the Chixulub comet that slammed into the Yucatan about 66 million years ago. But there were bigger ones even than that. Ever been to Sudbury? About 1.8 billion years ago, a rock hit that spot, leaving a 250-kilometre-wide crater. If there had been life more complicated than slime, that would have punched its ticket. We’d all be dead if it happened now, but what a way to go. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

he proverbial ping-pong pundit game provided the usual fare after the Liberals tabled their budget. NDP operatives slammed the 2.6 per cent increase in health-care spending, insisting it was a cut. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan criticized the government for selling Crown land and buildings (estimated at $800 million) and so on, and so on. Granted the Liberals did some unpopular things: increasing MSP premiums, and raising taxes for those making more than $150,000 a year, and hiking corporate taxes. But did they really have any choice? The mere fact that they raised taxes on the over-$150,000 group—their target supporters—indicates that they were making choices they would rather not have made. The truth is that there simply are no good choices. The Liberals, through their own making—and with some help from a flaccid economy—are faced with the inevitable “between a rock and a hard place” cliché. They cannot offer their supporters any more free rides, and they also can’t cut community services anymore—triggering more ugly headlines and giving Adrian Dix ammunition. The problem is Dix can, at this point, just criticize and stand back hoping no one notices that he cleverly avoids offering any clear, viable alternatives. It reminds us of an election a couple of decades ago when the hot topic was the government taking casino funds. An NDP insider confided that he hoped the Liberals would do it, even though the NDP had criticized it. He knew that government coffers were in desperate need of a new cash flow, and casinos would be a cash cow. And, when the NDP won the next election, they could tut tut about it all they wanted, but they all knew that they would never roll back the decision and lose all that money. We think Dix can tut tut all he wants now, but he knows, as do others, that the NDP isn’t going to roll back anything that can bring in much-needed cash.

A police presence and a police relationship is needed in this small community in order to make a difference. I fully support Mr. Lum and I’m sure I speak on behalf on most of the Yarrow residents. Just because it’s a bit of drive and may use gas, in the end the new relationship and presence may save money by stopping or catching the thieves, addicts and scum that have plagued our precious little town.

Editor: When the Chilliwack senior boys basketball team rolled down the highway last Wednesday night to play the number-two ranked Walnut Grove Gators, the result was a foregone conclusion. After all, Chilliwack was ranked number 31 and was down to three subs. We encouraged our boys to keep their heads high, play hard, play fair and try to score 40 points against this venerable opponent. This would be our final game of the year and we all knew it. We expected to lose, but we never expected this level of poor sportsmanship from such an organization of winners. The banners of success surround the gymnasium. And the Gators were as advertised—big, strong and talented. It was evident within minutes who would win. And if the score wasn’t enough, the game announcer on the loud speaker certainly told everyone over and over who the losers were and how very good the winners are. For example, when one of our players missed a bank shot the announcer shouted that “ha, ha, obviously, the bank was closed.” All the while, the Gator

Third-period woes cost Chiefs BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

BCHL notes...

The BCHL playoffs are scheduled to begin March 15, with Coastal Conference teams like the Chiefs set to play five-game series over six days. As it’s set now, the higher seed will host games one, two and five. That could make for some tired teams if a Chiefs/ Spruce Kings goes five games. Games 4 and 5 are slated for back-to-back nights, but would be held in cities 688 kilometres apart. There is little wiggle room, time-wise, but BCHL officials would let teams shift the location of certain games, if both clubs agreed.

Tyler Olsen/TIMES

he Chilliwack Chiefs stumbled again last weekend, dropping back-to-back games to division rivals. The Chiefs followed a 5-1 loss in Langley Friday night with a 5-3 home defeat to the Prince George Spruce Kings. Only four more games remain in the regular season, three of which are against the Langley Rivermen. And with just three wins in their last 11 games, the Chiefs are running out of time to fix their game before the start of the playoffs in three weeks. For 36 minutes, the Chiefs played the Rivermen to a draw Friday. After a scoreless first period, Langley opened the scoring six minutes into the second. But David Thompson jumped on

a loose puck and scored on the power play to level things up just three minutes later. Langley would take the lead late in the second on a power play point shot that Gillam would probably like to have back. But, as has often been the case the last couple months, it was the third period that really doomed the Chiefs. Chilliwack should have been desperate entering the third. Instead they were outshot 15-6 and outscored 3-0. After Evan Anderson extended Langley’s lead 2:19 into the final period, Derek Sutliffe’s wraparound goal 10 minutes later sealed the Rivermen win. BCHL leading scorer Mario Puskarich found the goal late for Langley to round out the scoring. Chilliwack put together a better 60 minutes against Prince George the following night at Prospera

hilliwack’s Alec Janssens had dreamed of skating in his first world championship event since he was 10 years old. In not one of those dreams, it’s safe to say, was Janssens blazing around the ice with half a moustache flapping in the air.

Thrilling title win for Unity

U

nity Christian’s senior boys basketball team hit two three-pointers in the last five seconds of the Fraser Valley Championship final Saturday to snatch their first-ever title out from under B.C. Christian Academy. Chilliwack’s lone single-A boys team entered the tournament ranked third in the province and handily defeated Agassiz 94-28 in the first round Wednesday. They got past eighth-ranked St. Jean Brebeuf 71-56 Thursday to set up a showdown with seventh-ranked B.C. Christian Academy in the championship final Saturday. Unity had split with the Port Coquitlam team in tournaments earlier in the year, and the game was a battle from the start that saw B.C. Christian Academy with a 30-28 lead at halftime. Heading into the third, the Flames were down 41-40, but back-to-back BCCA threes buried Unity by eight with 1:25 minutes to go. “Things then went perfectly,” Unity coach Mike Campbell said. First, the Flames stole four quick transition baskets by mixing up four different presses.

Then—with seven seconds left in the game—BCCA turned over the ball on an expired shot clock. With 3.3 seconds to go, Unity’s Kevin VanRyk (Grade 12) sank a game-tying three-pointer. Then BCCA gave up possession again after throwing the ball out of bounds. “Thankfully we still had one timeout left and we were able to draw up a play to hit our other Grade 12, Ryan Billsten, for an open threepointer,” Campbell said. “Unbelievably, it fell and the crowd of 300 screaming Unity fans went nuts.” Billsten was voted tournament MVP and VanRyk earned a tournament all star. Unity—who host the single-A provincial championships at UFV in Abbotsford March 6 to 9—begin their provincial run March 6 against 13th seed Mount Sentinel from Nelson. A win would pit them against arch nemesis Immaculata, who killed Unity’s B.C. title hopes last year with a buzzer beater in the provincial quarter-final. ◗ Follow the Senior A Boys Basketball Provincial Championships at https://sites.google. com/site/singleaprovboysbball/home.

Chilliwack players lead Cascades into Final Four

T

he University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s basketball team are moving on to the Canada West Final Four. The Cascades beat the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 73-58 Saturday to win their best-of-three quarterfinal series 2-1. All three games were held in Abbotsford at the Envision Athletic Centre. The Cascades, ranked fourth in the country, had entered the series as heavy favourites and won the first game 65-58 Thursday. But the Huskies were not about to roll over and prolonged their season with a 67-56 win over UFV Saturday. Saskatchewan leapt out to an early lead and held it for much of the game against the Cascades. UFV turned the tables in the third and deciding game. The Cascades opened with a 12-

point run and outscored their opponents 24-7 in the opening quarter. UFV maintained their double-digit lead until the third quarter, when the Huskies poured three consecutive threepointers to narrow the gap to just five points. Back-and-forth play saw the Cascades stretch their lead to 11 points and the Huskies narrow the gap to just two. But UFV’s experience and talent would eventually see the game out, with Aieisha Luyken and Nicole Wierks providing key baskets late. Chilliwack’s Kayli Sartori led all UFV scorers with 19 points, four rebounds and five assists. Sarah Wierks added 13 points and five rebounds and sister Nicole chimed in with nine points. The Cascades will now play in the Canada West Final Four in Calgary next weekend.

enrolled in the University of Calgary’s commerce program. He said his focus on his skating career means he has to be careful about over-extending himself academically. And then there are the financial pressures. Life as an amateur athlete and university student is not exactly a road to riches. “My food bill matches my rent,” Janssens said. But eating less—or eating less well— comes at a cost. “Just cutting corners on that can really

Expensive effect your performance.” For that reason, Janssens has recently launched his own website—www.alecjanssens. com—and is soliciting sponsors to help get him to Sochi. One thing he isn’t lacking is support from his old skating club. Janssens said the regular encouragement and letters he receives from current Sardis Fliers skaters helps keep him on the right track. “It brings the best out of you not only as a skater but as a person.”
