ith water to a jail cell fountain cut off, a thirsty Steven Kenneth Frederickson resorted to drinking out of a toilet in the hours after his arrest for the suspected murder of his roommate. Defence lawyer Ken Beatch played video of his client drinking from the toilet during a voir dire being held to determine whether statements made by Frederickson are admissible in his ongoing trial for the December 2010 murder of Robert-Jan Planje. Shortly after he was seen drinking from the toilet, Frederickson appeared to lose consciousness. He was subsequently taken by ambulance to Chilliwack General Hospital, where his condition improved after being given intravenous fluids and Benadryl for a rash. Frederickson had previously asked a guard at the jail to turn the water back on, only to be told it was broken. But Cpl. Michael Pacholuk of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team told the court Friday that he had actually ordered the water turned off because Frederickson appeared to have washed his hands in his jail cell’s toilet.

hilliwack may not be sixthcentury Britain but the provincial electoral district now has a touch of Arthurian drama to call its own. Michael Halliday of Abbotsford has formed a new political party, the British Columbia Excalibur Party, and will run in Chilliwack on May 14. “ O u r motto is the SCAN FOR WEBSITE land and the people and the government are one and things should be done that way,” Halliday told theTimes Monday. Halliday said the Excalibur Party follows the “knightly ideals” of truth, honour and justice as forged under King Arthur, according to the legend. He said under a political party that adhered to those three ideals, “you wouldn’t have had the BC Rail fiasco, the HST fiasco, the buying of ethnic votes, et cetera. “It would be impossible because it would be against the nature of the party.” See ELECTION, Page 7
Eight-year-old Jenna is recuperating at home after being injured in a pit-bull attack last week.
Pint-sized hero helps save girl during pit-bull attack BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
n eight-year-old Chilliwack girl is recovering at home after sustaining serious injuries in a pit-bull attack last week. Jenna, a Grade 3 Strathcona elementary student, was looking for bunnies outside her grandparents’
Rosedale home last Tuesday when a neighbour’s pit bull escaped its enclosure. The dog attacked Jenna, taking her down at the knees and then clamping down on the young girl’s face. Jenna suffered serious facial injuries and hundreds of stitches. But it could have been much worse if not for the actions of a four-year-old Chihuahua named Honey, accord-

he Chilliwack Teachers’ Association (CTA) won’t officially endorse candidates for the May 14 provincial election, but it will grill local election hopefuls at a teacher-hosted all-candidates meeting May 2. “We want to see somebody who supports education,” CTA president Clint Johnston told theTimes. “I doubt that we’ll find any that say they don’t support it, but we’d like to find candidates who have some sort of proven track record that they support it.” While the B.C. Teachers’ Federation is officially non-partisan, local unions are free to endorse candidates, and some—like theVancouver Elementary School Teachers’ Association and the Burnaby Teachers’ Association—are
Unlike other teacher associations in the province, Chilliwack won’t publicly back election candidates publicly backing the NDP. But that won’t happen here, according to Johnston. “Each individual member within the CTA gets to make the choice on Election Day who they support,” he said. “I don’t think that we should be speaking for them.” The CTA forum—the first all-candidates meeting announced so far—will be open to everyone. Candidates will have two minutes for opening remarks and then field two questions from the local teachers union before answering questions from the floor. CTA officials have yet to craft their two questions, but forum co-ordina-
tor (and CTA past president) Katharin Midzain said one big concern among teachers is what she calls the “erosion” public education and social services over the past 10 years. “A huge issue is going to be how valuable does [the candidate’s] party see a full, free public education system in our province,” she said. “Do they value an honestly free—which means no parent fundraising—public education system?” With B.C. teachers’ current interim collective agreement set to expire at the end of June, another teacher priority will be electing a government more open to negotiation and “good-faith” bargaining, according to Johnston.
“We feel like the current one has chosen to go more with legislation than with bargaining,” he said. In terms of the all-candidates forum, however, he said the CTA’s goal is mostly to help local citizens get to know their candidates better. “We just think it’s important that everyone—teachers, non-teacher, anyone—it’s important that they’re informed and that they have an idea of what the different candidates stand for before they make a choice on Election Day.” ◗ The CTA all-candidates forum starts at 7 p.m. on May 2 at Evergreen Hall (9291 Corbould St.).
Strahl’s stamp of approval BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
hilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl is being credited in part with a federal government decision that will see funds from the sale of a fishing stamp go to salmon conservation in British Columbia Any angler who wants to retain any species of salmon has to purchase a Salmon Conservation Stamp for $6. One item in the 2013 federal budget was the announcement that 100 per cent of the stamp revenues will come back to B.C. through the Pacific Salmon Foundation. “I commend the Government of Canada for making sure that each dollar an angler pays for the Salmon Conservation Stamp is returned to B.C.,” said Dr. Brian Riddell of the Pacific Salmon Foundation. “This change will result in significant investments in our fisheries that will be looked upon favorably by recreational and commercial fishers, First Nations, coastal communities and conservationists.”

Tearful vigil for Rachel BY CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com
or a while, a wide rainbow hovered over the big park in Mission early Thursday evening, then the heavy rain clouds rolled back to let the setting sun beam down on the community gathered to grieve one of its shining lights. As darkness fell, at least 400 people came to share their grief at a tearful candlelight vigil at Fraser River Heritage Park for Rachel Pernosky. The bubbly 18-year-old mother disappeared from her Kite Street apartment in Mission sometime early on March 16 under suspicious circumstances. Her body was discovered on March 19 off Old Orchard Road on Chilliwack Mountain. A homicide investigation is underway. For more than two hours, mourners stood hushed in a semi-circle around the park’s gazebo. They held candles, cupping cold hands around tiny flames flickering in the chilly wind. At one point a

A candlelight vigil was held last week in honour of teen mother Rachel Pernosky. tall blond woman sang a few verses of Amazing Grace, and others joined in. Among those paying their respect were people who never knew her. “We’re just here to support the family. We’re parents too,” said Bob and Julie, who were Rachel’s neighbours. Julie was also one of hundreds of friends and residents who searched for the young woman after she disappeared. The crowd of mostly young women and men, Rachel’s friends and peers, huddled in groups and sobbed quietly. Their faces showed their grief
and their disbelief that one of their own had been taken so cruelly. In the gazebo, dozens of candles blazed on a long table and on the floor, illuminating flowers, cards, teddies and Rachel’s smiling face peering out from portraits and collages of moments in her life with loved ones. One of the most heartbreaking was a photo of Rachel with her sleeping infant son—her face glows with a mother’s love as she looks into the camera. Rachel’s family also attended, with her one-year-old son Marco, to view the tributes
at the memorial and to shed more tears. The vigil was organized by best friend Cassidy Scott, 18, who knew Rachel from childhood. “Anyone who knew Rachel knew she was a very happy, loving person,” she told the crowd, fighting back tears. “We’ll all really miss Rachel. She’d be very touched to see how much everyone cared.” ◗ A benefit concert by local band Random Dander on Friday raised more than $4,500 for the Pernosky family. Donations can be made online at goo.gl/txomG.

NDP can ‘win anywhere’
So nice to come home to.
ELECTION, from page 1
While Halliday lives in Abbotsford, he said he will run in the Chilliwack riding because that is where his “power base” is. As for where on the political spectrum he lies, Halliday said he is in the centre with some ideas that “will benefit the wealthier and bigger business” and some “that will benefit labour unions.” Halliday was asked if a party based on the legendary sword of King Arthur would be taken seriously. “I think it confuses some people. Other people instantly know what we are saying. Other people take it quite literally.” Halliday is actively seeking candidates for his party. He said he has some possible names lined up for Chilliwack-Hope and Abbotsford but nothing confirmed. To find our more about the party visit www. bcexcaliburparty.com. Other election notes and tweets: The first all-candidates meeting of the election has been organized by the Chilliwack Teachers Association. The meeting will be held May 2 at 7 p.m. See page 3 for more on this. Chilliwack-Hope MLA and NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony continued her “mobile office” tour Monday visiting a number of First Nations reserves in the area with a stop at Soowahlie. Senior federal NDP strategist Brian Topp, who is now the campaign director for the BC NDP 2013 election, used O’Mahony’s 2012 byelection win as an example of inroads the party can make in 2013. “As we demonstrated in Chilliwack, we can now win anywhere in B.C.,” Topp said in a party newsletter. O’Mahony’s most recent tweet on Monday referenced the visit to Soowahlie. Chilliwack NDP candidate Patti MacAhonic was in O’Mahony’s riding on Sunday for a tour of the Yarrow Ecovillage. MacAhonic’s latest tweet on Sunday was a link to photos from the visit on her Facebook page. The BC Liberals were actively campaigning on the weekend at the Big Red Barn Burner BBQ competition where, led by Chilliwack candidate John Martin, local Liberals served up ribs and other slow-roasted goodies to the public. Martin’s latest Tweet from Sunday was a photo of long lines for their award-winning ribs at the event. Chilliwack-Hope Liberal candidate Laurie Throness was at the BBQ Sunday, but he was also out in the riding visiting with constituents. His latest Tweet from Saturday was a photo of him and a volunteer out in the sunshine knocking on doors. The BC Conservatives (BCCP) have continued with their local campaigning although so far it has mostly been in the form of a social media onslaught.

Chilliwack BCCP candidate Chad Eros has opened a campaign office downtown at 46239 Yale Rd. and he’s been heavily active on Twitter. There has been an ongoing back-andforth between Eros, fellow BCCP candidate for Chilliwack-Hope Michael Henshall and a couple of local Liberals, including Chilliwack riding association president Collin Rogers and Chilliwack MLA John Les’s son Allan. Most of the Twitter conversation has centred around just how conservative the BC Liberals are and whether voting BCCP could lead to vote splitting and an NDP victory. Eros’s most recent tweet to Les and Rogers from Monday morning: “Don’t U want conservatives 2 have their own house with their own terms where we won’t be marginalized? U r consrv?” Another recent missive from Eros: “Dear BC voters, in a BC minority gvt, which is most likely coalition? NDP with Consrvs or NDP with Libs? If U R consrv please vote BCCP.” As for Henshall, his most recent tweet was in response to the recent news that Paul Simon had agreed to allow the song The Sound of Silence to be used in an anti-oil tanker video created by Coastal First Nations: “Paul Simon can give 5Bil for BC social programs, or stick a cork in it. BCCP wants 2 refine product 4 dom & export.” Green Party candidate for Chilliwack Kim Reimer’s most recent tweet thanked a Central elementary teacher for an invite to the school’s mock provincial election.

Don’t ask life to be fair T his is the kind of story that should be served as a dietary supplement; it’s full of irony. The Canada School of Public Service, which trains bureaucrats, is in trouble for breaking its own rules on contracting. The CSPS (sample course title: Leadership Through Values and Ethics) apparently rigged contracts for outside or temporary workers. Now there’s a crackdown, of course, and maybe some heads will roll, but are we shocked? Not really. This reminds me of the other story making the rounds last week, about the humility of newly elected Pope Francis I. We are told that the day after being named the leader of more than a billion Catholics, Francis shunned the “papal limousine” and then headed by more modest vehicle to pay his hotel fee. This was shocking behaviour— because why? Please, someone explain to me how a man who has taken vows of poverty refusing to ride in a limo is not absolutely normal. I’m not a Catholic, but is there any religious viewpoint from which the phrase “papal limousine” makes sense? Is there also a papal gold-plated bathroom, a papal mitre-shaped swimming pool, a papal high-roller account in Las Vegas? Then, here in British Columbia,
Be Our Guest we have both the Liberals and the NDP having trouble discerning exactly what the difference is between private and party money. The Liberals, who have their hands on the levers of power, have been winning the race to blow public money on getting re-elected, whether through the pandering ethnic outreach strategy or through the deniable (but odious) ads about the BC Jobs Plan and the recent budget. All of these things are indications to me that power corrupts, that privilege and luck come to be seen as rights. Human beings (definitely including me) are blinkered and stupid, most of the time. I have been known to whine and complain about my lot in life, about my job, about the weather, about how bacon-flavoured toothpaste is hard to find. Every now and again, I give myself a smack and repeat the humility mantra: I am a straight white male living in the dawn of the 21st century. I am literate, employed, and connected to the
internet. The number of people who have ever, in history, had it as good as me is microscopic. As author John Scalzi pointed out, being a white, straight male is basically playing life at the lowest difficulty setting. Most important, it’s undeserved. Those bureaucrats rigging contracts, or those past papal officials who signed off on the limo, or those politicians who funded their re-election efforts out of the public till, all felt they deserved it. They’re underappreciated, or they’re holy, or they’re just on the right side of history, see? Everyone does this in smaller ways. We worked hard, so we deserve our houses and big-screen TVs and vacations. We’re better, somehow, than those people in other places who work much, much harder and live in shantytowns. We tell ourselves our station in life isn’t largely the product of luck, because that doesn’t bear thinking about. You think you want things to actually be fair? You think you deserve every good thing that ever happened to you? Give your head a shake. The scariest thing you can imagine is a world in which we would all be treated with absolute, pitiless fairness. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter wit the LangleyAdvance.
he federal government’s decision to close a freshwater research facility in Northern Ontario known as the Experimental Lakes Area is one more example of the Tory administration’s distaste for science. The project in question has spent 45 years researching the effects of pollution on fresh water—you know, the stuff we drink for, well, life. The closed system of the ELA allowed scientists to accurately assess the longterm effects of changing just one element in the surrounding ecosystem such as a fertilizer or pesticide chemical. Moving the research elsewhere into uncontrolled water means research will no longer be conclusive. Don’t expect to hear complaints from the scientists themselves. The Tories have increasingly cut off all governmentemployed researchers from speaking freely with the media, last year going so far as to have government handlers trail Canadian scientists attending international conferences. A clear signpost was the 2011 decision to end the mandatory long-form census, a move that caused the head of Statistics Canada to resign, saying the move would compromise its accuracy. And last year, the Tories infamously snuck science-slashing legislation into the back pages of its budget. Other countries have noticed, even if many Canadians remain unconvinced. U.S. scientists working co-operatively with Canadian scientists on Arctic research last year were aghast when asked not to release data without Canadian government permission. Against this backdrop, it’s difficult to take seriously last week’s promise to research how diluted bitumen behaves in salt water.

Hands off Tamihi Creek Editor: I could not believe my ears when I heard that Tamihi Creek was going to be turned into a run of the river project. I have never heard anything so dimwitted in my entire life. Why ruin one of the most beautiful and nature waterways in the province, let alone ruin it for fishermen, kayakers, etc. to produce electricity we don’t even need? Run of the river projects should have been put out of their misery a long time ago. They produce buckets of power in the spring runoff, but BC Hydro doesn’t need the extra power at that time of year as they can produce lots of extra power with their own generators. The rest of the year the run of the rivers produce next to nothing and BC Hydro is obliged to buy their power at exorbitant prices, even though they still don’t really need it. The only ones who benefit are the stockholders of the company that operates the project. Once again, the citizens of B.C. are shafted so that some stockholders somewhere have a good year, no matter what seriously detrimental effect these projects have on waterways, salmon, and the citizens who use them for recreation. I wonder how much money ended up in whose pockets so that this travesty was put in place in the first place? Why don’t we dam the Fraser and put concrete walls all the way down to the sea? It would make it much easier for the gravel companies to get the gravel out. We should cut down all the trees beside all the highways as it would make it easier to see what’s up ahead. Why not pave the whole valley? When is this idiocy going to stop? Jerry Riches Chilliwack
No way to tell just by looking Editor: Regarding “Miss Teen brings big rewards” March 23, Times. Congratulations Brittany; such a scholarship amount would indeed be a great prize. The story presents that the bikini contest is accepted because “they want to find girls who are also devoted to fitness and staying healthy.” That implies the judges have some supernatural ability to assess fitness, health, and commitment to those attributes by simply staring from a moderate distance at one’s mostly unclothed body. As a kinesiologist (that involves being a fitness and health professional), I have conducted innumerable fit-
ness and health assessments over the past 20 years; I can say with certainty that fitness, health, and devotion to those is not so readily apparent by appearance. One may have what’s considered a bikini contest winning body and have fitness and health behaviours which are appalling. Contrarily, one may have excellent fitness and health levels and behaviours, but have a body likely to be considered by beauty contest judges as not having photogenic appeal. I note the MTCW website shows in their FAQ section that fitness is a level of their competition, but see no method for assessing fitness; I also note the section under Finals-Competition omits fitness from the judgment levels, but has added “photogenic appeal,” and includes evening gown and swimwear elements. Clearly, physical appearance matters in the judging. Ironically, the website also says “Height has no bearing on the MTCW competition. To us, being 5’1” is just as beautiful as being 5’11”. This competition it about you shining from the inside out!” Quite simply, one cannot reliably judge fitness and health (or devotion toward) by visual appearance. It seems the message sent by MTCW is duplicitous. They expect good moral character in the contestants, but mislead about the very nature of their “competition.” At least that’s how it appears under scrutiny, and this judgment may get it all wrong, but in a way that’s my point.

Nothing wrong with chlorine Editor: The idea that chlorine is going to kill everyone, or make everyone sick, is ludicrous. It is used worldwide to prevent the diabolical E. coli virus, and when kept to its intended levels, you will not even know it is there. The idea of using UV is OK as long as each and every home and business, etc. uses it, while keeping a rig-
orous maintenance program of cleaning and replacing filters. Remember, the virus will survive in filters that are not changed regularly, and they (filters) can actually become a breeding ground for other types of viruses. The 450,000 kms of pipe that feed Chilliwack’s water can only be kept safe by adding chlorine. Just make sure that the people in charge of chlorinating know what they are doing. Walkerton’s employees chose not to add enough chlorine (or none at all) and kept inaccurate records of residuals. and look what happened. Al Glass Powell River
Need to ask the tough questions Editor I am a newcomer to the B.C. wild salmon crisis. I recently viewed a free documentary by Twyla Roscovich www.Salmon Confidential. ca which started me thinking about my mother. My mother was an educator. (Educe meaning to draw out or extract.) She brought forth from people their ideas and thoughts. She knew how to ask questions and she knew how to listen. She thought that if something had been made then it should be used. My mother would have seriously questioned the Norwegian aquaculture industry and the open net Atlantic salmon fish farms in the Pacific Ocean. She would have appreciated the Cohen Commission Report and Justice Cohen’s statement in his $26 million report “I have concluded that the potential harm posed to Fraser River sockeye salmon from salmon farms is serious or irreversible.” My mother believed in acting upon findings, she would have made an excellent premier of the province of B.C. who has the power to stop renewing salmon feedlots. She would revoke all the open net Atlantic salmon feedlot licenses immediately. Watch www.SalmonConfidential.ca and see what happens to you. Dianne Rose Columbia Valley

News ATTACK, from page 1 pursued and briefly caught Honey, before heading back towards the girl. Fortunately, the pit bull was then collared by its owner, whose entry into the enclosure provided the brief moment necessary for her dog to escape. Honey’s barks brought Anne Marie to the door, where she saw her dog’s back covered in blood. Then, she spotted the neighbour with her granddaughter. “My dog has bit Jenna,” said the dog’s crying owner. Anne Marie ran over to her granddaughter. But she wasn’t prepared
Animal was put down after attack
for the extent of Jenna’s injuries. “As soon as she moved her hand, I just screamed,” she said. Anne Marie rushed her granddaughter to Chilliwack General Hospital, where it took doctors three hours and many, many stitches to hopefully repair Jenna’s face. Even so, Jenna faces more doctor’s visits and possibly plastic surgery if the initial repair job doesn’t hold. When Mounties at CGH ordered the pit bull destroyed, the dog’s owner agreed and complied with the directive. The neighbour later
brought a gift for Jenna; Anne Marie told her she was grateful she was there to intervene. Pit bulls have been the subject of plenty of debate in recent years, with some municipalities enacting bans on the breed. Critics say pit bulls are inherently dangerous attack dogs. But defenders say the danger is only the result of how the dog’s are cared for and brought up.. Even the Desrochers are split on the issue. Anne Marie blames the breed, calling pit bulls “vicious.” Leslie, though, says the attack is
more of a reflection of the dog’s individual temperament. She noted that even the dog’s owners acknowledged its danger and kept it muzzled and harnessed when outside its enclosure. “We always knew it was a really vicious dog,” Leslie said. “Jenna knew to stay away from the fence.” Despite the trauma of the attack— and a couple bad dreams—Jenna has yet to shed a tear over the incident. At the hospital, she told her sobbing mother, “Don’t cry, Mommy; it’s OK.” Later, in the car, Jenna told her

family: “It’s a good thing I didn’t get hurt.” While Jenna hardly escaped unscathed, Honey actually seems no worse for wear. Although her owners had feared the Chihuahua had been injured, it appears the blood on her coat came from Jenna, via the pit bull’s jaws. No puncture wounds were found on the small dog. As her daughter and Honey played last weekend, Leslie said the two have “always been buddies.” Jenna, for one, said she wasn’t surprised that help came from her tiny companion. “I thought that she would help me and she did,” she told theTimes.

Eagles push Chiefs to the brink BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
he Chilliwack Chiefs faced elimination Monday night at Prospera Centre after dropping the opening two contests to the Surrey Eagles last weekend. With the Eagles holding a 2-0 advantage in the best-of-five series, Game 3 was slated for Monday evening at Prospera Centre. (The result was not available at press time.) On Friday, the Chiefs surrendered four first-period goals en route to a series-opening 4-0 loss to the Eagles—who boasted the best regular season record in the BCHL. For the Chiefs, it was a disappointing start to what should be a closely fought series; Saturday was more in keeping with early series SCAN TO SEE predicGAME 3 RESULT tions, as the two teams By scanning this page swapped and using Layar techgoals and nology you can find out leads the result of Monday’s throughdo-or-die Game 3 at out. Prospera Centre. The Eagles again leapt out to an early lead, with Trevor Cameron beating Mitch Gillam 8:14 into the first. But with two fan buses stocking two sections in the South Surrey Arena with Chiefs fans, Chilliwack avoided a repeat of Friday’s disastrous opening, outshooting the Eagles 13-6 in the opening 20 minutes. The second period saw Surrey netminder Michael Santaguida, who hadn’t surrendered a goal in five periods of play, mishandle the puck and allow Ryan Donohoe to score shorthanded five minutes in. Cameron restored the lead on the power play midway through the frame. But Chilliwack wouldn’t go away and Austin Plevy and Luke

Chlliwack Chiefs forward Luke Esposito pivots with the puck last weekend in BCHL playoff action in Surrey. Esposito linked up for a pretty tying goal just 1:35 later. Donohoe’s second of the game late in the period gave the Chiefs their first lead of the series. But, as happened the previous night, a bad 10 minutes put the Chiefs behind the eight ball. This time, the collapse happened in the
third period. After Cameron had completed his hat trick and tied the game, Nicolas Pierog put the Eagles ahead with 7:30 remaining. The backbreaker came off the stick of Michael Stenerson with a little less than four minutes to play. With the Chiefs pressing, Stenerson
and Adam Tambellini broke in on Gillam on a two-on-one. Stenerson took a pass from Tambellini, delayed and beat Gillam to extend Surrey’s lead. The goal was vital, as Spencer Graboski drew the Chiefs back to within one with 1:51 to play. In a game full of bad blood,
Nicolas Pierog’s five-minute highsticking major with 40 seconds to play gave the Chiefs a final stab at sending the entertaining game to overtime. But with Gillam on the bench and a six-on-four advantage, Esposito hit the crossbar on a shot that could have sent the game to overtime.

Ryan came out storming in the second round very aggressively and a collision of heads opened up a cut above Wiebe’s left eye. But the Chilliwack fighter outjabbed his opponent and weathered Ryan’s attack. Wiebe focused on body shots, and then came over the top with a headshot that dropped Ryan to the
canvas. Eager to end the fight, Wiebe poured on the pressure until Ryan was given a standing-eight count. Wiebe went back at him but Ryan was saved by the bell to end the round. After having his cut tended to between rounds, Wiebe came out quickly in the third and began to land at will, racking up enough points to win the decision.

AN URGENT REMINDER WHY WE SHOULD KEEP AND LOVE THE LORD’S DAY The Lord’s Day is the property of Christ. He has marked one out of seven days exclusively as his own. On this day we must rest from our work. One reason we set aside a day for rest is to refresh ourselves from our daily labours. More importantly, however, we should spend this day in public and private exercises of God’s worship to refresh ourseves spiritually. We may not rob the hours of the Lord’s Day for business or pleasure. Keep HIS day holy as an institution of the Lord, and in doing so we will receive blessings beyond our expectations. “This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

lavery, indentured servitude, trafficking in human organs and involuntary prostitution don’t sound like activities condoned in a free and democratic society, but these social ills exist in Canada today, according to human rights organizations. The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is hosting FREE ME, a day-long symposium on these issues on April 6. FREE ME is a human trafficking and slavery awareness event hosted by the UFV Global Development Institute and the local advocacy group I Am End. The purpose of the event is to educate people throughout the region about the scope and extent of human trafficking and awareness and to encourage them to resist these attacks on the vulnerable in British Columbia as well as in the rest of the world. I Am End is a group with a mandate of ending human slavery and trafficking that has a chapter based in Abbotsford. UFV’s Global
Development Institute is working the group to organize the symposium. The April 6 event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and it is open to students, professionals, and the general public. The event consists of three segments of the hard-hitting documentary Half the Sky, discussions and questions with a panel of experts, a catered lunch, and the opportunity to attend two workshops facilitated by the panelists. Students can attend the symposium for a $20 fee; the cost for others is $101. The Global Development Institute is a UFV research institute comprised of faculty and staff who promote and encourage research on sustainable human and community development in order to facilitate positive change for those living in vulnerable conditions. ◗ To register or for more info contact Danira Sehomerovic at firstname.lastname@example.org or Garry Fehr at email@example.com.
