Employee charged after $40K goes missing from RCMP exhibit room

Water rate increase likely to double

former City of Chilliwack employee is alleged to have stolen thousands of dollars of cash from the Chilliwack RCMP detachment’s main exhibit room. Mounties say a routine exhibit audit conducted in August of 2011 revealed money was missing. That investigation showed that around $37,000 of Canadian money had disappeared, along with $46 US and nearly $4,000 in Government of Canada cheques. The money was linked to 19 sepafiles. EB IRST rate “When the First reported on audit revealed chilliwacktimes.com a discrepancy, we immediately launched an investigation and imposed greater restrictions to the exhibit room, reducing the number of people with access to the room, changing locks and combinations,” Insp. Grant Wilson—the acting officer in charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachement—said in a press release. Wilson said the detachment has since taken steps to improve security in the exhibit room. “The allegations are disappointing, and, of course, very concerning to us,” Wilson said. “Since this investigation began, Chilliwack RCMP has taken a number of steps to improve the handling of exhibits, processes and procedures.” Jamie Tiller, 36, has been charged with theft over $5,000. Tiller was arrested March 5 and later released. Her next court appearance is scheduled for March 19.

Sardis secondary grad Kieran O’Donnell has his sights set on a career as an underwater welder, a goal that would have been an impossible dream if he hadn’t had help overcoming serious learning challenges.

Beating the odds BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

L

ast summer, Kieran O’Donnell did something he hadn’t done since Grade 5. He took a summer off. The 19-year-old was getting ready to head into his final semester at Sardis secondary, and for the first time in seven years, he was confident he didn’t need extra summer work on reading and math to finish up his last three courses for graduation. It had been a long journey since he first arrived in the Chilliwack school district’s Intermediate District Resource Program as an 11-year-old who couldn’t remember the alphabet past the letter E. By last summer he had already completed a semester of welding

courses at the University of the Fraser Valley through the district’s ACE IT welding program, and passed nine theory exams based on a tall stack of college-level textbooks. O’Donnell now dreams of on day becoming an underwater welder one day, but that door would have been closed to him if he hadn’t learned to read, accord-

ing to Sardis shop teacher Darren Purych. “We would have lost him,” he said. The reason O’Donnell wasn’t lost, according to most people who’ve followed his story, was retired veteran Chilliwack teacher Dave Clyne. “Dave made it his business to make sure that this child got through school,” former school trustee Diane Janzen said. Clyne had decided to volunteer with O’Donnell after teaching him in his last session as the teacher in charge of the intermediate resource program. He didn’t plan to get involved for very long. At first it was just a way to keep O’Donnell’s fragile new reading skills moving along until the end of the school year.

ears that the Fraser Health Authority (FHA) would never let Chilliwack turn off its emergency chlorination system in the wake of a recent low-level E. coli test have been confirmed. The FHA issued formal notice under the Drinking Water Protection Act (DWPA) on March 7 that a secondary disinfectant is required to be added to Chilliwack’s drinking water system. “Council is extremely disappointed to hear this news, but we have no option but to comply with the Fraser Health Authority mandate,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said in a press release. “Thank you to the thousands of residents who made your voices heard and fought for Chilliwack’s water. I know this news will initially be difficult for many to accept.” FHA chief medical health officer Dr. Paul Van Buynder said Chilliwack’s water system has been compromised over the years with fecal coliform and E. coli “on many occasions” and that after a review of data with city hall, “it is my assessment that ongoing secondary disinfection of the water supply system with chlorine or an equivalent compound is necessary to ensure a safe drinking water supply.” Public works estimates continued operation of the standby system would cost approximately $200,000

“Then he just kind of grew on our family,” Clyne said. A study space was set aside for O’Donnell in the Clynes’ house, and the tutoring sessions carried on into the summer—and then into the next seven years. “I’d never worked with a kid once they were out of the program, so in some way it was a bit of curiosity,” Clyne said. “But the biggest part of it was because he wanted to learn, and I knew that unless he had some help, it would fall apart.” Besides tutoring, Clyne advocated for O’Donnell at school, first at Cultus Lake elementary, then Mt. Slesse middle school and then Sardis secondary. Especially crucial for O’Donnell, Clyne said, were school-based team meetings that brought together O’Donnell, his mother Tracy, his teachers, a school counsellor and Clyne every three months of the school year. “They allowed him to get to know the teachers more personally and for the teachers to get to know him better as SCAN TO SEE well,” Clyne PREVIOUS STORIES said. It was at a school-based team meeting that Tracy first knew her son was going to be alright. She had long feared he would drop out, get into drugs and either go to jail or die early if he couldn’t overcome the serious learning difficulties that had paralyzed him during his first six years in the Chilliwack school district. But when she heard him speak up and advocate for himself at a meeting for the first time in middle school, she knew things were going to be OK. Along with being unable to read at age 11, when he first started working with Clyne, O’Donnell had also had trouble expressing himself. And it wasn’t just his mom who got to witness his transformation over the years. Education assistant Carol Frost, who had worked with O’Donnell in the resource program, remembers a poem he wrote years later after his grandmother died. “It moved me to tears to see the

Janzen remembers a ceremony at Mt. Slesse where O’Donnell was presented with an award. “We just sat there and wept,” she said. “It’s just overwhelming when you know how far a person has come and the amount of effort they’ve put in.”

“It moved me to tears to see the words that had been locked inside. I always knew that he had so much to express if only he had the tools.” Carol Frost For Clyne, the relationships O’Donnell forged with trustees over the years (He once inquired if he could adopt trustee Martha Wiens as his grandmother) were just one

more part of the “perfect storm” that helped O’Donnell overcome the odds stacked against him because of his disabilities. O’Donnell agrees. “Everyone contributed to my success,” he said. But when you ask him why he stuck with it, why he pushed himself to make it to tutoring sessions during the summer and do homework when other kids were enjoying time off, his answer is clear: “For myself and for respect for Dave,” he said. “Dave gave so much for me . . . It wouldn’t have worked if I wouldn’t have kept working with Dave.”

Program no longer exists

T

he Intermediate District Resource Program that witnessed the beginning of Clyne’s and O’Donnell’s unusual partnership was dismantled three years ago. Some of those interviewed for this story suspect it was a cost-cutting measure. The district already spends 42 per cent more on special education than it gets from the provincial government, according to a recent report, and a program that sees one teacher and one EA work with only six students at a time is a costly endeavour. But district officials say the program was shut down because it wasn’t getting enough referrals and that they have since shifted district resources into school-based

supports instead of pulling kids out of their home schools for special programs. Does that mean students like O’Donnell now are getting all the support they need, or are there some who will never learn to read because there is no retired teacher to take up their cause? “We hope that that doesn’t happen,” Chilliwack superintendent Evelyn Novak said, “and we have programs and staff in place to ensure that that doesn’t happen, but the reality is, schools and our district don’t always control all of the variables. There are sometimes variables that we can’t anticipate or control and so there are students who continue to have challenges learning to read. It would be unrealistic to suggest that doesn’t happen.”

Cash Mob keeps registers singing after racist emails BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

O

rganizers of the cash mob that hit Chilliwack’s two Indian restaurants on Friday estimate as many as 1,500 people took part. “That number is simply amazing and WAY beyond anything we could have hoped for,” said the posting on Cash Mob Chilliwack’s Facebook page Saturday. The shop-local cash mob event was organized to support the owners of The Bay Leaf and Shandhar Hut after racist emails were received by the two businesses in late February. The general manager for Chilliwack Taxi also received an email saying the company should stop hiring East Indians to drive cabs. Both Shandhar Hut and The Bay Leaf were busy all day and night Friday as diners descended on the two eateries to show support. “I really appreciate the Chilliwack people —

they support me,” Bay Leaf owner Sumit Gulati said. “I feel comfortable [now].” Not only did Friday’s event put him at ease, but he’s been receiving phone calls, emails, letters and cards of support since the incident. Shandhar Hut on Young Road was just as busy and feeling the love. “It’s been insane,” part-owner Paul Atti said. “It’s been one of those days that you won’t forget.” His restaurant has been open for eight years, and Sunday’s hateful letter was the first he’d ever received. “The Chilliwack community just responded beyond what we thought was going to happen,” he said. “There was a line-up all the way out the door for us . . . all the tables were packed — take-out was flying. It looked like a Friday night for us.” While it is unclear that any law was broken with the emails, a Chilliwack RCMP investigation continues and the writer is asked to come forward.

or the first time ever, Chilliwack’s top cop is a woman. The mayors of Chilliwack, Hope, Harrison Hot Springs and Kent have chosen Insp. Deanne Burleigh to be the new Officer in Charge of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD). Burleigh, a 27-year veteran of the force, will start in April. Burleigh had previously been the Richmond RCMP’s operations officer and overseen the Mounties’ activities in that city during the 2010 Olympic Games. With the appointment, Burleigh becomes the first female officer in charge of a Chilliwack RCMP detachment. She was chosen after an interview selection process conducted by the mayors in charge of the four Fraser Valley communities served by the UFVRD. The appointment was then approved by RCMP commissioner Bob Paulson. Mayor Sharon Gaetz said the choice of Burleigh was unanimous among the four mayors—who were presented with a slate of nine different candidates to

choose from. “Deanne was perfect for the job,” Gaetz told the Times. “She impressed us all with her interview, with her experience and with the ways she’s going to work to make this detachment even better.” Gaetz said the mayors liked that Burleigh had experience working with Richmond, her communication style and the importance she placed on using data to make decisions. Her gender, Gaetz said, “didn’t factor into our decision-making.” She added that Burleigh was the strongest candidate, regardless of sex. But Gaetz was also clearly pleased that the mayors had the opportunity to appoint a woman to head the RCMP in Chilliwack. “The fact that she’s a female makes it interesting and a little bit exciting for me,” said Gaetz, who said she remembered a time in the 1970s when even grocery stores limited the possibility of job advancement for women. The new job also comes with a promotion to the rank of superintendent, which Gaetz said will make Burleigh one of just a few female superintendents in

the province. But Chilliwack is now accustomed to women holding positions of power, boasting a female mayor, MLA, and school district superintendent. In an RCMP press release, the retiring officer in charge, Supt. Keith Robinson, threw his support behind his replacement. “I have known her for a number of years and she has a common-sense approach to policing and is a very open, caring individual,” Robinson said in the release. “I am confident she will be a great asset to the communities of the Upper Fraser Valley and will be a positive influence to the UFVRD policing model.” After beginning her RCMP career in August 1985, Burleigh spent most of her first decade as a cop in Montreal, where she worked in commercial crime, anticorruption and customs divisions. She also was on the Akwesasne Reserve during the OKA crisis. She moved to B.C. in 1995, where she worked as a general duty Mountie and in the commercial crime section, before becoming Richmond’s operations officer.

New policy has humanists alarmed BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

Feel Bibles could still be distributed

he Chilliwack school board is facing opposition to a proposed distribution-of-materials policy that makes no mention of religion or Bibles. Trustees will vote on the policy Tuesday night, but a group that represents atheists, agnostics and secular humanists plans to speak against it. “This new policy doesn’t address any of our concerns,” said Ian Bushfield, executive director of the BC Humanist Association, in a press release. “In fact, it raises new questions about religious advertising in Chilliwack schools.” Bushfield’s Vancouver-based organization is concerned the proposed policy could still allow Gideons International to give out free Bibles at local public schools. The draft policy makes no mention of religion or Bibles, saying only that “all

material and information distributed within or through Chilliwack School District schools shall be in the best interests of students.” Authority to distribute the materials of recognized charities and other educational or community-service organizations would rest firmly with the superintendent under the new policy. At her discretion, she would also be able to direct school principals to get written parent consent before certain materials were handed out. In that case, the organization in question would provide the necessary number of consent forms, but school principals would be responsible for handing them out. It was a parent consent form that first touched off the controversy about what should and shouldn’t be handed out at

a year. The city will need to upgrade to a permanent full-time system at an estimated cost of $1.5 million. No timeline has been established to put in place the permanent system as it was not budgeted for in the 2013 financial plan. The city will look into grant programs from other levels of government to help pay for a permanent system. If none can be found, it will mean a further estimated three per cent increase in water user fees. On March 19, council is scheduled to give final adoption to a water rate increase of 3.44 per cent for 2013. Now an amendment will likely be made to increase that rate hike to 6.44 per cent. “It’s not small change,” Gaetz told the Times. “A lot of people will find that part distasteful. They are getting a product that they don’t wish to pay for. “Council is extremely disappointed and we tried to fight as hard as we could.” A low level of E. coli bacteria was confirmed from a test site at South Sumas

and Sumas Prairie roads in Greendale on Feb. 27. After that positive test, city crews immediately flushed the pipes and activated the standby chlorination system. The positive E. coli test elicited shock, surprise and even a little suspicion among residents as it came less than 24 hours after hundreds of residents attended a meeting to give FHA bureaucrats a piece of their mind about a chlorination edict issued Feb. 5. At that meeting, Van Buynder told residents that Chilliwack has a great source of drinking water but that secondary disinfection is the only way to ensure the end product will always be safe. “We need more than just really good water in the ground,” he said. “We need really good water at the tap.” In a statement posted on the FHA website, Van Buynder said the information provided by city hall “confirmed vulnerabilities in the system including a number of residences with dual systems

Chilliwack’s public schools last October. Local parent Richard Ajabu complained to the district after his daughter was handed a permission form for a free Gideons Bible at her elementary school. He said the brightly coloured brochure constituted “religious marketing.” The school board did vote to delete an anomalous administrative regulation that specifically endorsed the Gideons activity in November. But Ajabu expressed concern that a new policy governing all materials handed out at schools could still allow for the Bibles unless the school board explicitly banned the Bibles with a reference to a part of the BC School Act that states schools “must be conducted on strictly secular and non-sectarian principles.” No such reference is included in the draft policy trustees will vote on Tuesday.

and without backflow prevention. These potential pathways by which pathogens can enter the distribution system was the reason for the initial concerns of Fraser Health.” The positive E. coli test from Feb. 27, however, was the first time the bacteria had been detected in the main drinking water distribution system on the valley floor that serves 97 per cent of the population. Before that, there had been three isolated cases of E. coli detected in hillside reservoirs since 2009. Gaetz said in 17 years in public office she can think of no issue that elicited such a public outcry. “I can count on one hand the number of people that said this is a really good thing,” she said. ◗ A petition against water chlorination at www.chilliwackwater.com continues to get signatures and was up to 5,591 by Monday afternoon.

Tracy Wolbeck said. “We are doing everything we can right now to look for any other possible victims. These searches can be very difficult emotionally on emergency workers and we are very hopeful that there are no further victims involved.”

CMP divers and search and rescue members plied the depths of the Fraser River early Monday morning after a fatal car crash late Sunday night. Police were called to the intersection of McDonald and Ballam roads just before midnight Sunday to find a concrete barrier was pushed over and a power pole was sheared off. The evidence suggested a vehicle had left the road and entered the river and, after a short search, Mounties found a dead 36-yearold woman in the river. The victim’s name has

Local BC Liberals were critical of vote splitting on the right by the upstart BC Conservatives in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection last year. Now, New Democrat candidate Patti MacAhonic might not be too happy to see a Green in the race in Chilliwack for the same reason. “If there is no Green, typically the Greens will vote NDP,” Reimer conceded. “But honestly I think that a lot of things in the Green Party platform will appeal to dissatisfied Conservatives and Liberals.” Reimer and her husband are professional photographers and run a website design company out of their home. While her name will be on the ballot, Reimer said it’s she won’t have the financial backing to run a high-profile campaign. Reimer is up against the NDP’s MacAhonic, Liberal John Martin and B.C.

Seeking hit & run suspect A

37-year-old Chilliwack man is recovering from a broken leg and head injuries after being struck in a hit-and-run while walking on a downtown sidewalk earlier this month. Mounties say that on March 2 around 12:15 a.m. two men were walking along Williams Street, on the west sidewalk, when a vehicle drove across the on-coming lane of traffic, jumped the curb, and struck one of the two pedestrians. The vehicle then took off, driving east on Portage Avenue towards Menzies Avenue. Police say the victim suffered a broken leg

and trauma to his head and body. Despite that, they say the outcome could have been much worse. “This accident could have been a lot more serious than it was,” RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a press release. “We are hopeful that someone knows something that can help us locate the driver of the vehicle.” Police say evidence at the scene suggests that the vehicle could be a light blue Toyota car. ◗ Anyone with information is asked to call Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611.

Plagiarism in fiction hard to find

L

ast month, one of several lawsuits against director James Cameron was thrown out of court. Not so much thrown, actually, as fired out of a cannon at the alleged victim. Cameron is currently the target of at least three more lawsuits, all claiming that he cribbed the ideas for his blockbuster Avatar from their novels or unproduced screenplays. Few of these suits have much chance of success. The authors play up some similarities in their works—Soldier on an alien planet! Giant rainforests! Revolts against mining companies!—but closer reading usually reveals shared generic ideas. There’s no protection for simple plot and character elements.You say your book about a teenaged vampire in love is being ripped off by my soon-to-be-published epic masterpiece Count Dylan ofWestside High?Well, get in line. Because clearly, both of us are ripping off Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, who was also obviously borrowing wholesale from TheVampire Diaries by L.J. Smith, whose author was teen-ing up InterviewWith The Vampire by Anne Rice, which was a spin on Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot and George R. R. Martin’s Fevre Dream, which were based on Bram Stoker’s Dracula (the book, not the movie with Keanu Reeves), which in turn was ripping off Sheridan LeFa-

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest nu’s Carmilla and Paul Feval’s Vampire City, which were inspired by John Polidori’s TheVampyre, which was an homage to Lord Byron. Make your cheque out to the dead English poet, if you want to put an end to it. As the above examples show (and I could have included a dozen other branches of vampire/supernatural/gothic/romantic literature, movies, and role-playing games) ideas spawn more ideas. Sometimes it’s just the zeitgeist that hits authors. For example, do I know that Stephenie Meyer has read TheVampire Diaries? No, I do not. In fact, I think it’s entirely plausible that her vampire romance love triangle was created independently of L.J. Smith’s. For another franchise, look at J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter. Rowling has famously been sued about as frequently as Cameron, and often by people who believe that the use of the word “muggle” grants them some kind of magical primacy. Who has not sued Rowling? Well, she’s not been taken to court by Ursula K. LeGuin, or by the sadly late Diana Wynne Jones. Why not?

LeGuin’s AWizard of Earthsea tells the tale of a young wizard, powerful and born to a non-magical family, who barely survives an early encounter with dark magic, trains at a wizarding school, and goes on to confront and defeat the foe that nearly destroyed him. Sound like Harry Potter? Not if you’ve read both series. The tone and setting are worlds apart. (If you haven’t read it, go pick up Earthsea today!) Likewise, Jones has written about the similarities of her Chrestomanci books to Harry Potter, when asked by young fans. She did see some similarities. But she did not reach for the telephone to call her lawyer. “Once a book is published, out in the world, it is sort of common property, for people to take ideas from and use, and I think this is what happened to my books,” Jones wrote. There is theft and plagiarism, but much more common is inspiration, the moment when a writer puts down a book, holds the idea in his or her mind, and says, wait a moment, what if this happened instead? Stories breed stories. They’re meant to. The canon of literature is an edifice built upon itself, from the Bible to the Odyssey, all the way up to the latest doorstopping novels. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

nock, knock. Who’s there? It’s the federal government. Unfortunately, that line has struck a number of people as less than funny, after the feds sent workers to the homes of Employment Insurance (EI) claimants to check on them. Ottawa claims the visits are needed to protect Canada’s EI program from fraud, although it’s hard to see how a house visit could accomplish that. Most job coaches will say that sitting at home isn’t the best way of finding work. The program smacks of intimidation and does little that couldn’t be accomplished by picking up the phone. It also focuses energy in entirely the wrong place. Most people who are unemployed would prefer to be working. Fact is, the economic recovery has been painfully slow over the past several years. Despite the fact EI is an insurance program that workers pay into, the federal government has in recent years made it more difficult to qualify for benefits and cut the length of time benefits are received. None of which has done anything to help those who find themselves out of work through no fault of their own. Contrast this with the kid glove treatment recently afforded to Conservative senators who have apparently been claiming false residences in order to collect a special housing allowance at taxpayers’ expense. Recently Senator Mike Duffy said he’d repay tens of thousands of dollars in housing allowance after falsely claiming a cottage in Prince Edward Island was his principal residence. Seems a few folks in the Red Chamber could benefit from a government-sponsored house call.

CHILLIWACK TIMES TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013

Maybe we should ignore the experts Editor: In Thursday’s Chilliwack Times, one writer suggests that our water is best left to experts. Ah yes, experts. We, the taxpayers, pay quite a number of “experts” to run our affairs on a municipal, provincial and national level. Perhaps the problem with not always being content to accept these “experts’” decisions comes from articles we read in newspapers and magazines? For example: “99 stupid things the government did with your money,” published in Maclean’s magazine. When it comes to Chilliwack’s water, it didn’t seem to help that one expert (not very expertly mind you) first told us that we are drinking poo. The real frustration with the decision to chlorinate our water is, in my opinion, twofold: First, there is the timing. There was absolutely no immediate health risk associated with our city’s drinking water when, seemingly out of nowhere, we are told that our award-winning water will be chlorinated. Secondly, there are the facts. Not one person ever got sick because of E. coli contaminated Chilliwack water. In fact, past very minor problems were isolated and confined to only certain hillside reservoirs. Seems to me that rather than basing decisions on facts, some experts operate instead based on fear and the old “what if” question. And what about the experts who have studied and documented the dangerous, possibly cancer-causing effects of adding chlorine to one’s diet? Should we perhaps just ignore these experts? Mario C. Alleckna Chilliwack

Some just don’t understand Editor: Mr. Keller writes in Thursday’s Times that water matter should not be up to the majority and compares it to people voting on a number of other things such as “building bridges.” We let the same people vote in elections and it is evident that most people don’t, as Mr. Keller says,

have an understanding of the subject at hand. Harry Shardlow Chilliwack

The water fight is not yet lost Editor: The argument in favour of chlorination: a purportedly fool-proof method of ensuring contaminant-free drinking water at the tap. But at what cost? We are required to consume low-level quantities of a potent oxidant—chlorine attacks organic matter indiscriminately, and cumulatively the effects on the human body must be quite profound. Living with diverse levels of “risk” is a fact of life, has always been so. Merely crossing the street introduces risk, but we do not expect it to be made foolproof—only that reasonable precautions are exercised (in street design and in pedestrian behaviour). While the consequences of an accident are wide, it is mitigated by the relative likelihood. Reasonable and not extreme caution is sufficient, a balance is kept. Chlorination, not based on conclusive proof of its long-term health safety, falls far short of a balanced approach. The City of Chilliwack, blessed with an natural water source of extremely high purity, has developed a water distribution system that produces an equally high level of water safety at the tap. City administrators have done a stellar job of informing the public, and has its trust. An informed public, knowledgeable of the facts in the matter, would likely accept the tiny margin of risk involved in

turning on the tap. It has done so for decades, without relevant incident. The fight is not lost, because it hasn’t yet been waged. I don’t intend to take this lying down. Do you? Wayne Froese Chilliwack

Water should taste like water Re: Tips on reducing the taste and odour of chlorine in tap water. I had to laugh at the idea of filling a jug of water, putting it in the fridge overnight, and magically the chlorine will “leave the water overnight.” I was never good in science, so can someone tell me how this is even remotely possible? A sealed jug of water in the fridge for eight hours will remove the chlorine? I think not! And with a family of four or six, who’s got extra room in the fridge for a huge jug of water! The next tip is to drink the chlorinated water cold. I don’t know about you, but I prefer water at room temperature. Most of the time, I travel with water so generally it is not cold when I drink it. Try this test, take four glasses of water: untreated, natural pure water; storebought bottled water; Brita filtered water; and our newly chlorinated tap water. Try drinking them when cold, and then at room temperature. There is only one that will taste the same at all temperatures. Water should taste like water at any temperature. How’s does this grab you? Two children I know lost all of their teeth by the age of 10 from drinking only bottled water. And that’s in

Toronto. I also agree with an earlier writer, if you’re going to do this (chlorinate our water), at least put fluoride in it. Julie Bishop Chilliwack

Idle Free means shut it down Editor: Recently I observed a Government of Canada vehicle, a navy blue Chevrolet Suburban, bearing Canada licence plates, sitting in the parking lot of a local Tim Hortons, with the engine running for well over half an hour, while the two occupants, in army fatigues, sat in the vehicle drinking their coffee. Are government vehicles exempt from the Idle Free B.C. program? Or since it is voluntary, are they simply ignoring it, not to mention ignoring the fact that it is taxpayers who have to shell out to cover the gas burned for these lengthy (engine idling) coffee shop stops? Tim Hortons does provide tables and chairs inside the store! Here is the information the Idle Free BC website has about the City of Chilliwack: A two-step idle-free initiative has been approved by the City of Chilliwack to reduce idling within the city. The intention is to achieve compliance through voluntary measures. Step one includes municipal light duty fleet vehicles only. The second step takes the results of step one to the community, seeking voluntary involvement from such groups as public schools, driving schools, transit operators, trucking associations, and the general public. The educational campaign will raise awareness about how unnecessary idling contributes to the deterioration our air quality and has negative impacts on our health and our environment. K. J.

BCHL notes...

The Chiefs finished the season with the league’s best attendance (see story on page 11), averaging 2,194 fans a game, but not all BCHL clubs are so well supported. The league averaged a respectable 1,159 fans per game. Penticton and Vernon were second and third, respectively, in attendance. The Merritt Centennials (683 fans) and Powell River Kings (731 fans) had the lowest attendance. In the Mainland Division, the Coquitlam Express brought up the rear, drawing only 779 fans per night.

Chiefs end season on a high note

Hoping to ride weekend sweep of Langley into opening round of playoffs

he Chilliwack Chiefs will enter the playoffs on a high after a pair of victories over the Langley Rivermen last weekend. After losing to the Rivermen the previous weekend, the Chiefs dominated both games against their valley rivals, winning 5-2 Thursday in Langley and 4-1 Saturday back at Prospera Centre. As they prepare to open the playoffs Friday at home against Prince George—and even though the Langley games were meaningless to the standings—the Chiefs seemed to rediscover the scoring touch and confidence they possessed at the start of the season. Chilliwack created chances and, crucially, finished them as they never looked in danger of losing either game. On Thursday, Ryan Donohoe led the way with a hat trick that included a pair of shorthanded goals. He opened the scoring just five minutes into the game when he started, and finished, a shorthanded two-on-one rush with Philip Zielonka.

Chiefs forward Brodyn Nielsen battles Langley’s Evan Anderson for the puck during Saturday’s BCHL tilt at Prospera Centre. The Rivermen made amends on their next power play to tie the game. But the Chiefs took over the second period, outshooting Langley 18-6 and scoring three times. Donohoe went first, banging home a rebound on an early power play to restore the Chiefs lead. Late in the period, Zielonka scored his 36th goal of the year when he pounced on another rebound. And with 22 second left in the second, Hansen stole the puck from Langley defenceman Turner Popoff and fed Spencer Graboski to give the Chiefs a three-goal lead heading into the final period.

The Rivermen pulled to within two goals in the third, but a blocked shot by Hansen on another Langley power play helped spring Donohoe on a partial breakaway and his third goal of the game. The Chiefs were just as good on Saturday. With little on the line, Langley rested BCHL scoring champion Mario Puskarich while Chilliwack head coach Harvey Smyl sat all-star Luke Esposito. The Chiefs got on the board barely two minutes into the game with a goal from the most unlikely of scorers. Eric Roberts, the youngest player

In his 57th, he finally got to celebrate his first tally when his one-timed point shot beat Langley netminder Darren Hogg. Alexandre Perron-Fontaine scored on a power play off a rebound to give the Chiefs a 2-0 lead heading into the second. There, the Chiefs continued their dominance. Mathieu Tibbet finished a nice three-way passing play between him, Brodyn Nielsen and Graboski just 2:52 into the period. And five minutes later, Hansen made the score 4-0 when he and Donohoe teamed up for yet another shorthanded goal. Langley finally got on the board with a Popoff point shot, but just nine seconds later Nielsen stole the puck and beat Hogg for his second goal of the year. Then, after 29 minutes and six goals, it suddenly became much tougher for either team to score. The rest of the second proceeded without a goal and the Rivermen and Chiefs combined for 33 shots, 16 penalty minutes and exactly zero goals in the third as the two teams bid farewell to each other after playing five times over the previous three weekends. Langley will move on to play the Surrey Eagles in the first round of the BCHL playoffs while the Chiefs will welcome the Prince George Spruce Kings to town, with Game 1 slated to go Friday. ◗ For a full preview of that series, check out Thursday’s Times.

Chiefs continue to lead BCHL in fan base BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

W

ith the regular season in the books, the Chilliwack Chiefs can once again claim to have the most fans of any British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) team. The Chiefs led the league in attendance in the 2012-13 season and were the only club to average

more than 2,000 fans a game. It’s the second consecutive season the Chiefs have led in regular season attendance. Chilliwack averaged 2,194 fans a game, up from 2,040 last year and more than 400 fans better than the team with the second-best attendance, the Penticton Vees. (Totals don’t include the BCHL showcase, which was held in Chilliwack) Chiefs president Glen Ringdal

said the strong numbers reflect the growing bond between the team and the community. “I think there is starting to be a feeling in the city of Chilliwack that the Chiefs are our team,” Ringdal told the Times. “People are starting to feel that this team is here to stay.” And while there was speculation that the NHL lockout would help junior hockey attendance—and

that the lockout’s end would hurt it—the Chiefs have actually seen more fans at games in the second half of the season. On Saturday, the Chiefs recorded 2,951 fans, their second-highest total of the season. “Our fans have continued to support us throughout,” Ringdal said. “People are finding when they come to games that they are thoroughly entertained.”

Ringdal hopes that trend continues through the playoffs. While last year’s first round saw some of the sparsest crowds of that season, that shouldn’t be the case this year, as the club included the first round of the playoffs into season ticket packages. The Chiefs also have home ice advantage, which means they’ll play on the weekend, which should make for a more lively atmosphere.

Obituaries

Aldine Thomson (nee Wamer), 89, of Chilliwack, BC, passed away peacefully on February 28, 2013. She was born in Bella Bella, BC on September 1, 1923 to Ceta and Keary Wamer. She was married to Kenneth Edgar Thomson on July 20, 1942 in Yarmauth, Nova Scotia. Aldine filled her life with family and friends. She enjoyed outdoor activities with family. She was a competitive player and won constantly in Bingo and cards; but look out if she lost. She spent her time shared between trips to the cabin, spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and her friends at Time Out and Lombardy Lane. She always liked to be part of everything and was always up for the next adventure may it be another trip to the cabin or a trek to Alaska. Even at 89, she took her first quad ride with her granddaughter. Everyone has the fruits of her labors through blankets, socks or dishcloths. Her heart was full of love for all her family. She was predeceased by her husband Kenneth Thomson and her brother Treant Wamer. She was survived by her children Mike Thomson, Heather Johnson (Ron), Brian Thomson (Laura), Gerry Thomson (Lorri); her grandchildren: Kerry Thomson (Larissa), Shana Braiden (Bill), Mariko Thomson (Ken Watt), Pat Thomson (Andrea), Jodi Siemans (Jeremy), Troy Ellis (Cathy), Cameron Ellis (girl friend Bianca), Kevin Johnson (Holli), Tammy Morrison (Brad), Melanie Duffy (Chris), Cheryl Smith (Shane); And Great Grandchildren: Kenzie, Meghan, Jemma, Quinn, Ireland, Emme, Gabrielle, Liam, Ethan, Elijah, Ashton, Molly, Samuel, River, Reid, Tristan, Cody, Tyler, Ashlyn, Cole, Connor, Austin and Alexia. A Celebration of Life for family and friends will be held at 1:00 pm, March 22, 2013 at Woodlawn Funeral Home 45865 Hocking Ave, Chilliwack, BC. In lieu of flowers donations would be greatly received in Aldine’s name to the Mount Cheam Lions Club to be directed to Chilliwack Time Out or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of British Columbia.

Clyde Douglas Dougans

Passed away unexpectedly on March 7, 2013 in Chilliwack, BC at the age of 61. He was predeceased by his parents, Douglas and Carolyn. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Joy; his children Jennifer (Jordie), Peter (Nao) and Andrew (Angie); his grandchildren Carolyn, Charlotte, Peter, William and Remi and his brothers Rob (Carol) and John (Sue). Born in Vancouver, Clyde was an exceptionally hard worker from a young age. He worked paper routes, delivered prescriptions for a pharmacy on his bike and later put himself through UBC while working full-time at Safeway. Upon graduation from UBC, he took a teaching position in Squamish before moving to Chilliwack and starting his career there as a teacher at Central Elementary. He also taught at Strathcona, McCammon, East Chilliwack, was the head teacher at Miller and CHANCE Alternate, and was later principal of Cultus Lake Elementary, Bernard Elementary and lastly, Central Elementary. Central Elementary became a community school under Clyde’s watch and became a passion dear to his heart. During his career, he earned his Masters from the University of Victoria and was honoured as one of ten outstanding principals nationally in 2007. Clyde was a huge personality and was well known for his charity work. He was a notable presence at the annual MCC festival for 35 years, and once auctioned a loaf of bread for $60,000 and then got a matching bid as well. He has easily come between many people and their wallets and through the years has raised hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars for local and international organizations. In retirement, Clyde did not stop learning and working. He worked through his bucket list: learning to make pottery, build a saddle, shoe a horse and was recently becoming tech savvy again as he started work on a website. He was an avid hunter and novice guitarist. He earned his motorcycle license and planned future trips with his beloved Joy. His father’s recent death became a time of reflection and he deepened his relationships with his family and friends. He discussed his faith and eternity openly. He was loved by his wife, his children and his extended family and he loved them all dearly in return. He was well respected and a friend to many. He was a cowboy at heart and his huge personality will be missed by so many now and in the future. The world was left a better place because Clyde was in it. A service celebrating his life will be held at Chilliwack Alliance Church on Thursday, March 14th at 3:30pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to MCC or Sardis Doorway in Clyde’s name would be greatly appreciated.

May the Sunshine of Comfort Dispel the Clouds of despair

Roland Kurt Johann Mickler was born June 5, 1954 in Schlossneuhaus, Germany and died March 3, 2013 in Cascade Hospice, Chilliwack, BC after a brief battle with cancer. Roland was predeceased by his mother, Brigitte and father Herbert. Left to mourn his sudden passing is his wife of 35, Paula; son, Jordan (the light of his life); sisters, Shirley Mickler and Tina (Steve) Hart and numerous aunts and uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. Also left behind is his business partner of 27 years in his beloved Phase Electric, Ron (Grace) Vandyke and many wonderful friends. Roland was active with the Chilliwack Youth Soccer Association and acted as president for 10 years. He also coached Rep Soccer and was chairman of the annual Chilliwack Youth Soccer Tournament. A Funeral Service will be held at the Chilliwack United Church, 45835 Spadina Ave, Chilliwack on March 16th, 2013 at 1:30 pm. The family wishes to extend an invitation for anyone wishing to share a special remembrance of Roland to submit it in an email to paula_mickler@telus.net as a book of memories will be displayed at the service. A special thank you goes to Dr. Bull and the wonderful staff of Cascade Hospice Centre and the Palliative Home Care team.
