hat do CBC Radio 3 personality Grant Lawrence, Vancouver punk rocker Joey Keithley and Old Yale Brewing Company have in common? D.O.Ale, a limited release beer launched last Friday and brewed right here in Chilliwack. It all started in October when Lawrence tweeted “Yukon Blonde Ale” with the hashtag “CDNbandbeer.” From there, the hashtag trended on Twitter with dozens of band names injected with beer vernacular flooding in. Among those suggested: Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Pilsner, The Weakercans and the Beer See BEER, Page 5

Epic fish fight finally settled in court BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Patricia Kelly had more than 200 court appearances in nine years over Fisheries Act charges.

Sto:lo woman’s nine-year fight over a few hundred sockeye salmon has ended with an absolute discharge and a payout for most of the fish confiscated. After more than 200 court appearances since 2004, B.C. Chief Justice Thomas Crabtree granted Patricia Kelly an absolute discharge in Chilliwack court May 9. Crabtree also ordered Kelly to be paid $2,482, the value of more than 90 per cent of the fish confiscated from her on the Fraser River nearly nine years ago. Kelly was charged in 2004 with “purchasing, selling and possession of fish against the fisheries act.” She pleaded not guilty and after a long

“How does a woman from our community become a criminal for practising her right to fish?” Grand Chief Doug Kelly court battle was convicted on July 3, 2008. She then put forth an aboriginal rights defence, which she was in court trying to prove since that time. According to Kelly—who defended herself since her conviction—her fight, which she says is about the very nature of aboriginal rights and title, has led her to become homeless and penniless. “I’ve suffered politically, socially, emotionally, economically,” she told Crabtree during her telephone court appearance on May 9. She asked Crabtree to use the “widest discretion possible” and said

she now wanted the matter behind her so she could continue “being a mother and go back to work.” Crown prosecutor Finn Jensen had asked for a conditional discharge and a “modest fine” as a sentence for the 2008 fisheries act conviction. Kelly asked for an absolute discharge and repayment for 276 of the 296 fish confiscated in 2004, since the court only proved 20 of those fish were caught outside of the legal opening. Crabtree concluded that it was not against the public interest to grant Kelly her discharge and payment for the lost fish.

The case garnered considerable interest in the Sto:lo community and the broader First Nations, particularly after Kelly’s mug shot appeared in a June 12, 2009 Crime Stoppers advertisement in theTimes. “How does a woman from our community become a criminal for practising her right to fish,” Grand Chief Doug Kelly (no relation to Patricia) said in July 2009. Sto:lo Nation president Chief Joe Hall agreed. “There’s got to be a more fair way of dealing with these issues rather than turning well-meaning and honest people into what’s being perceived as hardened criminals,” Hall said in 2009. Kelly did not return the Times’ request for a comment before going to press.

Rejected but not done

There’s still some fight left in parents wanting local early French immersion

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

L

ocal parents who want their kids in early French immersion are busy looking for alternatives to the Chilliwack school district after the board of education rejected a plan last week to start a program here in 2014. Parents voiced disappointment at the board’s decision in numerous letters to the editor and are now swapping ideas on the Parents for Early French Immersion (EFI) in Chilliwack Facebook page on how to get their kids into EFI elsewhere. Some are urging parents to pull their kids and enroll them in École La Vérendrye, the Francophone School Authority’s school in Chilliwack. “You get to stay in Chilliwack, the children will be bused to school from your doorstep AND the money will leave the Chilliwack School District as the French Schools have their own school board,” Mary Forstbauer posted. “SEND CHILLIWACK A MESSAGE. Register your children NOW for École La Vérendrye.” In the past, only students with Francophone parents were eligible to enrol at the school, but last month the French school authority announced a more relaxed policy around admissions that will allow for kids with parents and even grandparents who speak French to be considered. Others have voiced plans to pull

their kids in favour of the Abbotsford school district, which offers early French immersion. Five Chilliwack kids are already enrolled in elementary French immersion there, and the district has recently received two or three new requests for next year, according to communications manager Dave Stephen. Some Chilliwack parents, like local Canadian Parents for French president Jocelyn Thomas, are even considering pulling up roots in Chilliwack altogether. Those who don’t have that option are discussing French immersion homeschooling and even starting a French immersion independent school. “It only takes 10 kids to start a school,” posted Jill Giesbrecht. “Admittedly there would likely be some cost to the parents, but if the school is established, there is a contribution from the ministry as well.” The board spiked Tuesday’s motion to start a program in 2014 because of cost, a lack of space and because a 2014 implementation would be rushed. “We will just screw it up if we do it this quickly,” said trustee Doug Mckay Tuesday. But Thomas said the board has had plenty of time to get the program going.

“[We] gave the board three years notice that we were coming for the September 2014 school year and we wanted EFI,” she wrote. “The board can’t say that they did not have enough time.” Thomas also called the projected costs presented to the board last week “overinflated.” For 40 students and two classes, the program would cost $578,035 in the first year and $3.9 million over five years, according to the district’s projections. Those figures, however, include four full-time teaching positions, two of which would actually be split between EFI and the district’s existing late French immersion program. But superintendent Evelyn Novak defended her projections “This is our best guesstimate around what those costs will be,” she said. “We were trying to ensure that we weren’t going to be under-budgeting for a program. We were trying to be as realistic as possible.” As for the financial impact of students leaving the district in droves to find EFI elsewhere, Novak said the district will wait and see what happens. “It’s hard to know what decisions parents will make for their children.”

hilliwack Mounties are on the lookout for the man who held up a flower vendor at knifepoint last Tuesday. Mounties say the victim was selling flowers from a truck on the southbound side of the 6700 block of Evans Road around 1:30 p.m. when he was approached by an young man. But instead of asking for a flower, the man showed the flower seller a knife and demanded money. The victim handed over an undisclosed amount of cash to the robber, who then left in a small pickup truck, which was either light grey or brown and had a uncovered box. Mounties are now asking the public’s help to find the clean-cut suspect, who is described as white, around the age of 18 to 20, with short black hair. “This is a commonly travelled roadway in Chilliwack,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen in a news release. “We are canvassing for witnesses to this crime hoping some one observed this vehicle and the suspect in the area.” ◗ Anyone with information is asked to call the RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Looking for new fire chief

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he City of Chilliwack is looking for a new fire chief. Rick Ryall, who has headed up the Chilliwack Fire Department (CFD) for 14 years, will retire in July. Mayor Sharon Gaetz said Ryall’s departure leaves a big hole to fill for the City of Chilliwack. “Rick has left an amazing legacy in our community,” Gaetz told the Times Friday. “He’s been exemplary. His whole file is full of commendations.” Ryall began his career at the CFB Chilliwack fire department in 1975. He left there as chief in 1995 and, after a brief stint in Abbotsford, joined the CFD as an assistant fire chief. Four years later, he was named chief, a position he has held ever since. Gaetz said Ryall was responsible for building “a small fire department into

one that’s well-functioning.” She emphasized the soft-spoken Ryall’s listening skills. “That attribute has served him really well, but he’s a very strong leader,” she said. “Rick has a wonderful character quality of being able to listen to everyone and [being] able to come up with a plan.” Under Ryall’s leadership, the fire department began full-time staffing of a hall in Sardis. Gaetz also credited him for promoting female firefighters within the department’s ranks. The city has now posted Ryall’s job, but Gaetz said whoever replaces him will have big shoes to fill. “He’s really well respected by the firefighters in our community and the assistant chiefs,” she said. “As a mayor, there’s some people when you see they’re coming up to retirement age, you dread that day, and the day is upon us.”

With the retirement of longtime chief Rick Ryall, the Chilliwack Fire Department is in need of a new top firefighter.

Senior back in trouble after pursuit

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack senior was arrested Wednesday after allegedly fleeing from police and backing into several RCMP cruisers. Mounties say they received a report around 6 p.m. that a 1992 Dodge Dakota pickup truck was travelling west on Chilliwack Central Road and had struck several parked vehicles.

Police located the vehicle, but the driver failed to pull over. When the truck did eventually come to a stop, police say it backed into police “several times.” Mounties were able to box in, and immobilize the truck. They arrested Stanley Edward Sztuk at the scene. Sztuk, 73, has been charged with dangerous driving, impaired driving, flight from a vehicle, and driving with a suspended licence. It’s not the first time Sztuk has been

arrested following a pursuit. In September of 2011, he was arresting following what police described as a low-speed pursuit through downtown Chilliwack. In that case, his vehicle came to a stop only when it hit another car waiting for a train to cross Young Road. After pleading guilty to three charges including driving with a blood alcohol content over .08, Sztuk was sentenced to a day in jail and handed a driving prohibition.

BEER, from page 1 Good Tanyas. The whole thing was really just a digital good time started by Lawrence until OldYale coowner Jeremy Sibley stepped up to make it a reality. “They had never thought it wouldeverbecomeanything,” Sibley said. “I approached them and said, I can actually brew one of these.” From there, Lawrence put Sibley in touch with Ben Didier of CBC Music who designed a set of labels. Sibley then began recruiting other small B.C. craft brewers to get on board. Friday was the official launch of the Canadian Band Beer series, a joint venture between CBC and the four breweries: Old Yale, R&B Brewing Co. out of Vancouver, Townsite Brewing from Powell River and Cannery Brewing out of Penticton. D.O.Ale pays homage to Vancouver punk rock legends D.O.A. and was launched on May 17. Sibley said they will brew approximately 6,000 of the 650 ml bottles when all is said and done. The following three beers will be launched on subsequent Fridays. There is R&B’s You Say Barley! We Say Rye!, named after new-wave punkers You Say Party! We Say Die! Townsite’s Said the Ale is named after Vancouver indierock band Said the Whale.

Gaining popularity And last, but not least, is Cannery’s Pink Mountainhops named after Vancouver band Pink Mountaintops. The bands involved also had to be on board and Keithley said he thought it was a great idea when he was first approached. In a video promotion on CBC’s website, Keithley had a warning for beer wasters. “If you ever get a D.O.A. beer, don’t waste it,” he said. “Because D.O.A. hates beer wasters and we will find you and you will pay.” The venture by Old Yale is just the latest in a string of developments since the brewery was restarted in 2011. They recently started offsales onsite at the Venture Place brewery, and in early May they came home from the Calgary International Beerfest with some hardware. Old Yale’s Chilliwack Blonde won a gold medal in the“Light Hybrid” category. “It’s nice to get that recognition from the experts,” Sibley said. “It’s nice to see people in the industry recognizing it as best in class.” D.O.Ale should be available now in select private and government liquor stores across the Lower Mainland, including here in Chilliwack.

An election post-mortem

W

e have two new BC Liberal MLAs in Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope, returning theTimes’ readership area to the Libs after 13 months with an orange NDP tint in the east. A day after the election, pollsters were left to explain how they could have got things so wrong, and the media turned on the hindsight lenses to try to explain. Minutes after the victory, new BC Liberal MLA for Chilliwack—and former BC Conservative (BCCP) candidate for Chilliwack-Hope—John Martin credited one person he was highly critical of a year ago. “Christy Clark is the single best campaigner in the country, bar none, and she has pulled off what everybody said couldn’t be done,” Martin told me. So how did she do it? A mix of buoyant optimism in the face of NDP-leaning polls and relentless pessimism in the form of attack ads depicting Dix as unpredictable, unreliable and emblematic of the supposedly dark days of the 1990s. Dix’s (mostly) stay-positive message simply did not resonate with voters enough to get them past the fear induced by the Clark campaign. One NDP campaign volunteer texted me on election night with frustration at his own party: “This is what happens when you run your campaign with mittens on instead of boxing gloves.” Maybe so. As New Democrats (and pollsters) lick their wounds, some other big losers are local environmental activists, who did not favour the BC

PAUL J. HENDERSON

SIMPLY A MUSING Liberals by any measure. The anti-pipeline group PIPE-UP issued a report card in which the NDP were given a happy face and the BC Liberals a sad face. The newly created WaterWealth project led by Sheila Muxlow issued letter-grade report cards in which the two NDP candidates were given A- grades. Both Liberals got Ds. Voter turnout was as terrible as ever, a persistent problem in elections at all levels. One glimmer was that of the 85 ridings in the province, Chilliwack-Hope saw the second highest increase in voter turnout (3.2 per cent) over 2009 and Chilliwack saw the fifth highest (two per cent). Just nine ridings saw any turnout increase and all of them went Liberal. Clearly, as Vancouver Sun reporter Chad Skelton observed, the Liberals did a better job of getting their voters to the polls. Note that 5,000 more people voted in the 2013 election in Chilliwack-Hope than did so in the 2012 byelection (14,401 to 19,292). And Throness more than doubled his vote total from 4,593 to 9,533, which is remarkable considering O’Mahony has had a year to prove herself as an MLA and has done a commendable job. In the end, voters bought into both the fear propagated by the BC Liberals and Clark’s jobs/economy message. Clark’s TV-friendly persona

may have been off-putting to her critics, but she clearly looked like more of a leader/ premier than Dix. BCCP leader John Cummins told me on election day that voters were left with an unhappy choice. He said the Liberals were “style over substance,” and the NDP “may be substance over style but the substance is a little bit scary.” Voters disagreed. Maybe the election was about hope. Maybe fear. One thing is clear and that is that the BC Liberal election machine is a force to be reckoned with. And despite what the media, the pundits and the pollsters predicted, only one group mattered, as Throness told me on election night. “I love that the people are the boss.” Other odds and ends The BCCP did about as well as we predicted: Chad Eros and Michael Henshall finished in distant thirds but more than doubled their party’s average for votes. Water chlorination campaigner Kim Reimer ran for the Green Party and came across as confident and educated on the issues. She earned 1,600 votes or 8.24 per cent. As for the “other” candidates, Michael Halliday and his BC Excalibur Party might want to return the sword into the stone after receiving just 160 votes in Chilliwack. And a word of apology to independent candidate and Hope resident Ryan McKinnon who ran in ChilliwackHope. I predicted he would be lucky to get 100 votes. Remarkably, the one-issue man received 782 votes, or four per cent. Good for him.

◗ Opinion

Why it’s good that polls failed The poll that came closest to calling the result right in last Tuesday’s provincial election was still wildly wrong. A Forum Research poll done six days before the vote showed a mere two-point gap between the Liberals and the NDP. Of course, it still had the NDP out in front, not losing by almost five per cent in the popular vote and 17 seats in the Legislature. Political polling has been around for about 180 years, and it’s been a major part of political campaigns for almost a century. It started with straw polls and postcards, then moved on to direct interviews and phone surveys. It’s now completely broken. In Quebec, Alberta, and now B.C., we’ve seen dramatic failures of the polls to predict the final results. Why? I really don’t know. Neither does anyone else. There are explanations that may very well be correct. Some say that a reliance on online polling picked up results from too many young, potential NDP voters, just as phone polling in Alberta picked up too many older, Wild Rose supporters. Others say it was a last-minute shift in undecided voters. Maybe it was the humidity. Maybe it was the high CO2 in the atmosphere. Maybe Christy Clark promised to give young Hamish to Rumpelstiltskin in exchange for victory. Maybe Adrian Dix angered Zeus, and was smacked down for it. All of these are post facto ratio-

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest nalizations. The practical result is that using a variety of different polling techniques, a number of firms have failed utterly across multiple provinces. Good. Maybe we can be done with polls forever. It would be good, first of all, to wean reporters off of polls. We love horse-race coverage of elections. Who’s up? Who’s down? Who has momentum? Heck, I’m addicted to this stuff too. But covering the race takes time away from covering the issues. Remember all those extensive discussions about health care and education during this last provincial campaign? (Sound of crickets.) Second, for decades it’s been a cynical joke that parties don’t make policies, they poll and then fit themselves around what voters think. Are attitudes changing about gay marriage? Wait till it gets over 50 per cent, and then the parties will consider changing their platform. A majority of Canadians favour legalization of pot? Maybe now’s the time to switch up that party platform.

On social issues, the public is leading the politicians, while on economics, the parties have become all too similar. If the polls are meaningless, parties will have to do the unthinkable. They’ll have to advocate for what they believe and hope they can win over the voters. We haven’t seen this kind of politics in Canada since W.A.C Bennett was still managing a hardware store. I would love to see parties take positions based on what they absolutely think is the right thing to do. Is it right to decriminalize pot? How much should we raise or lower taxes? How much of a voice should unions or businesses have in Victoria? More foreign workers? Scrap MSP payments? Allow people to pay for faster surgeries? Without polling on major issues, parties will, without a doubt, crash and burn in spectacular and unexpected ways. They’ll have to change how they campaign, how they raise funds. There will probably be a lot more money spent on getting warm bodies to rallies and to the polls on election day. But hopefully, there will mostly be more talk and debate, and honest attempts to change the minds of voters, not to parrot back what the pollsters say people want. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

e could wring our editorial hands over the low voter turnout—although it did bump up by a miniscule one per cent this time. We could decry the lack of substantive debate on issues during the campaign. We could simply ponder the future of our province under a new—yet old— establishment. But, instead, we revel in the fact that pollsters and the media were gobsmacked by the results. Yes, we count ourselves among the smug majority of pundits who, like blissful sheep, simply followed the usual election routine: consider the polls irrefutable and build one’s plan around them. Although, if one examines the polls closer, a mere three days before the election some had the race in a dead heat with momentum for the Liberals. However, none accounted for a momentum and numbers such as the one we experienced. We, like other media, already had pre-digested stories ready to run. The standard —what will Adrian Dix be like as the premier? What went wrong for the Liberals and when? Yes, so confident were we all in the outcome that there seemed to be very little excitement to be had on election night. Well, we were wrong, dead wrong. And we are delighted. No, not because the Liberals were elected. We respect the voters’ decisions—no matter that we often scratch our collective heads over them. We are delighted because for far too many elections, the media, voters, candidates have all grown attached and dependent on polls and pundits. We were long overdue for a wake-up call. A wakeup call that says don’t take anything for granted. (We suspect the NDP is saying the same thing for other reasons.) A wake-up call that tells voters that things are not preordained. That getting off your duff and voting might just swing things at the last minute. That, dare we say, the future is not as predictable as many would have us believe.

Stuck in a monolinguistic dark age Editor: I have a three-year-old daughter who will be starting kindergarten in September 2014, the date considered by School District 33 as the earliest time for an early French immersion (EFI) program to begin in Chilliwack. I am incredibly disappointed and dissatisfied with SD 33’s decision last Tuesday evening to reject implementation of the EFI program. I applaud school board trustees Heather Maahs and Walt Krahn for supporting a program that would have opened many doors for not only my daughter, but the 39 other inaugural French immersion students that also would have begun learning a second language in September 2014 . . . learning a second language that may have led them not only to better career and employment opportunities as adults but also opened the gate for higher earnings, learning a third or fourth language, aiding them in communicating in international travel and business, and delaying the onset of dementia in their elder years. These are key points. Being bilingual carries many advantages, based on “hard evidence” that trustee Barry Neufeld claims he hasn’t seen and feels is just “public belief.” In a Chilliwack Times article from Jan. 25, 2012, Neufeld outlined why he didn’t think French immersion was worth it. Just for you Trustee Neufeld: In August 2010, two University of Guelph economics

professors published a study in Canadian Public Policy showing that earnings potentials are greater for bilingual Canadians; earlier this year, a Canadian neuroscientist published a study in the Journal of Neuroscience indicating that dementia is delayed in those that are fluently bilingual. I am very saddened that school trustees Barry Neufeld, Doug McKay, and Sylvia Dyck voted against implementing an EFI program in Chilliwack. I am also just as saddened that school trustee Martha Wiens, who was present at the meeting, abstained from voting. My only solace in her decision to not make a decision is that there is perhaps hope that she will one day be a champion of early French immersion in Chilliwack and vote for this program’s implementation. This could be your legacy, Martha. However, that said, I believe that each of these trustees was elected to make decisions and to vote when summoned to. I assume she performed her civic duty and voted in the

provinical election on Tuesday. Why could she not also perform her elected duty and cast a vote regarding early French immersion? If she is not up for this elected duty, I strongly urge trustee Wiens to step down and allow someone else to take her place who does feel up to the task. To trustees Neufeld, McKay and Dyck: I understand that an early French immersion program may come with some associated costs. But I believe, as should you, that Chilliwack’s children deserve the opportunity to fluently learn this country’s other official language, to not have any of their horizons limited before their fifth birthdays. And that, if one day we should be so lucky as to have a Prime Minister call Chilliwack their childhood home, that they be able to address the 22 per cent of this country’s population that call French their mother tongue with a French pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary that we could all be proud to say that they learned here in

Chilliwack. My vision for my daughter was to attend a French immersion school in Chilliwack in September 2014 (and for my younger child to follow in 2017). Trustees Neufeld, McKay, and Dyck seem to be only concerned about dollars and cents, so I will speak to them in a language that they can understand: you will lose the approximately $8,600 per year per child this province would have given you to have my children attend one of your schools beginning in 2014. My children will either attend a school in the Conseil Scholaire Francophone or I will drive them to a French immersion school in Abbotsford’s School District 34, which happens to have not just one, but four early French immersion schools to choose from. Yet Chillwack School District 33 remains in the dark ages of monolingualism and is B.C.’s largest district without an early French immersion program. I sincerely hope that somehow, when you meet again in August to debrief about Tuesday’s decision, that at least one of you will change your minds about EFI. The clock is ticking for the parents that have been working so hard to implement this program in time for September 2014. More importantly, it’s ticking even more loudly for their children.

Why should you make a will?

Phone: 604.858.3223 email: carmanuc@telus.net

Every adult who owns assets or has a spouse or young children should have a will. Surprisingly, many people don’t have one. The few hours that you spend with a lawyer planning your estate could save your spouse, children and other beneficiaries much time, effort and money. By not having a will, you lose control over who gets how much of your estate and when. You also give up the right to appoint a guardian of your choice for any young children you have. And the costs to administer your estate will be drastically increased.

How will your estate be divided if you die without a will?

If you die without a will, BC’s Estate Administration Act dictates how your estate will be divided. It sets out the following rules: • If you own a home, your spouse will have the right to use it for life. This is called a "life interest" and can tie up the estate for a long time. Your spouse receives the first $65,000 of your estate. Then if you have children, your spouse and children share what’s left – equally if you have one child, and if you have more than one child, then one-third to the spouse and the remainder equally to your children. If you have no children, then your spouse gets everything. Children born outside of marriage are treated the same way as other children in the family. But stepchildren are currently excluded. • If you don't have a spouse, or if your spouse is dead, the estate goes to your children. If any of your children died before you, leaving their own children, then their children would take equally the share of your dead child. • If you have no children or grandchildren, then your parents (or the survivor of them) get the estate. • If your parents are dead, then the estate goes to your siblings, but if one of them has died before you and left any children living when you died, those children receive your dead sibling's share. • If all your siblings are dead, then your estate is divided equally among your nephews and nieces, but if there are none, then it’s left to your other relatives based on a table of family connections that shows how they are related to you.

Does a “spouse” include a common-law spouse?

The definition of “spouse” in the Estate Administration Act includes a person who has lived with you for at least two years in a marriage-like relationship immediately before your death. It can be a common-law gay or lesbian relationship. This means that more than one person could be your “spouse” for the purpose of sharing your estate. If this happens, each spouse would share in the estate in portions that a court decides are fair.

ESTATES When would the children get their share?

Without a will, the Public Guardian and Trustee becomes the trustee and holds the child’s shares in trust for them until they’re 19 years old. The child’s parent or guardian would have to apply to the Public Guardian and Trustee for any money needed for things like living expenses or education. This can be a hardship if the child is quite young and the parent or guardian needs the money for day-to-day expenses. When the child turns 19, they can demand all of their money no matter how much it is, regardless of their maturity or financial responsibility. By contrast, if you have a will, you appoint the executor and trustee for the share going to a child under 19, and you can direct that the share be used for the child’s benefit, including support and higher education, without government involvement.

Who takes control of your estate if you die without a will?

In a will, you can name an executor to manage your estate when you die. The executor is often a relative, friend or other trusted person. You can also name a guardian to look after any infant children. But if you die without a will, someone must be appointed by the court to manage your estate. This person is called an administrator. The court will also appoint a guardian if you have children under 19 and the other parent isn’t alive.

But they don’t have to be. Submitted photo

Chilliwack’s Ryan Bowen was drafted in the fifth round by the Western Hockey League’s Moose Jaw Warriors.

Who can apply to administer and handle your estate?

Your spouse is the first person who can apply. If you have no spouse or if your spouse is unwilling or unable to be the administrator, then a relative can apply. If there are no relatives willing or able to do this, then any other eligible person could apply to be the administrator. This may include a friend of yours, or a professional such as a lawyer or accountant. The Public Guardian and Trustee – as Official Administrator for the province of BC – might also apply to administer your estate, if for example, no one else is willing to take on the task. Certain conditions may apply to the appointment of an administrator If you have debts when you die, the person who applies to be the administrator must get your creditors to agree to the application. Also, the person who applies may have to get the agreement from other people who could be appointed administrator. In addition, the friend or professional may have to deposit money with the court (called a bond), as a way to ensure they do the work honestly and competently.

Preparing your Will and other estate planning documents doesn’t have to drive you crazy.

Although you can use a kit to write your own will, it’s a good idea to get help from a lawyer or notary public to make sure your will is legal. If your will isn’t considered legal, it can create a lot of problems for your heirs. Information provided: http://cba.org

hilliwack’s Ryan Bowen is heading to Moose Jaw, Sask., this week and he couldn’t be happier. That’s not a phrase you hear much about Moose Jaw, especially concerning 14-year-old boys. But it couldn’t be more true for Bowen, who was drafted last month by the Moose Jaw Warriors in the fifth round of the Western Hockey League’s Bantam Draft. Bowen will take part in the club’s prospects camp this weekend with the team’s other draftees. For Bowen, who plays centre and bills himself as a pass-first playmaker, being drafted by a WHL team was a thrill. While he had expected to be drafted, Bowen said he was “shocked and excited” to actually see his name come up. “I’ve always wanted to play in the WHL so it’s a pretty cool experience,” he said. “I’m

really happy that I got drafted by the Moose Jaw Warriors.” Bowen had to temper his initial celebration, however. He was in his Grade 9 science class, working on textbook questions while checking the draft listings online when he saw his name pop up on the screen. Bowen played his minor hockey in Chilliwack before moving to Penticton last year to play with the Okanagan Hockey Academy (OHA), where he said his coach, former NHLer Mike Needham, has been key to his development. The Warriors have told him they have high hopes for him if he can continue to improve. “They were saying if I keep developing I would most likely be a power play centre,” Bowen said. That has him excited for his future and for the coming weekend’s prospects camp. “I’m really excited to show the Moose Jaw organization what I can bring,” he said.

Volume 2, Issue 2

May 2013

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

BC Liberal Party supporters let out a cheer as news of both candidates John Martin and Laurie Throness being elected was announced last Tuesday night.

BC Liberal win good news for Chamber T

he president of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce says the election of a BC Liberal majority government last week is good news for business owners. “The Liberals have a plan to create jobs, have a plan to create economic prosperity,” Kevin Gemmell said. “They don’t have a plan to block things that will create employment, so I think this is a win for all.” Still, Gemmell wasn’t so sure that most British Columbians thought the same way. He said he was taken by surprise just how easily the BC Liberals won in Chilliwack and across the province. He said he was worried about the BC Conservatives splitting the vote on the right—something that didn’t

end up happening. “I wasn’t confident that the Liberals could pull it off and when they did I thought, well that’s great, from a Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce standpoint,” he said. “When you look at the actual spread, I was quite blown away. I think it’s quite significant.” Gemmell said that the number of votes the Liberals won both here and elsewhere in the valley was a sign that people think the party “is on the right track for business.” Gemmell says the Liberals showed their business-friendly bonafides by implementing the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST), which he continues to think it was good for businesses and consumers. The HST—which the chamber

supported—is now dead, and the Liberals realized that they screwed up last time, he said. It won’t return, but Gemmell is hopeful that the business-minded approach that led to its introduction continues under a Christy Clark-led government. “They have a desire to create job growth. They say they have a

“They’re not saying they’re going to do it, but they’re willing to look at opportunities that will create significant employment whereas, as a businessperson, I didn’t see the NDP along the same lines,” he said. While the party in power remains the same, the local chamber will have to get used to two new MLAs in John Martin and Laurie Throness. Gemmell said the chamber had a good relationship with Liberals John Les and Barry Penner, and with the NDP’s Gwen O’Mahony during her one-year tenure. He said he hopes to build a similar connection with Martin and Throness. “We are there with open arms,” he said.

plan—we need to see that happen, obviously—but they’re not against things that will create economic prosperity like big job opportunities.” The two parties’ approach to the proposed twinning of the Kinder Morgan pipeline, which runs through Chilliwack, is one example of that mindset, Gemmell said.

The Chamber Voice

Fate of executive director’s position will wait until fall

{

T

“Fieny’s doing a wonderful job for us. I would be shocked if we looked anywhere else. She’s just an excellent person.” - Kevin Gemmell

he Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce will wait until the fall to decide on a new executive director. But Chamber president Kevin Gemmell said the organization may already have its woman. Fieny van den Boom has been working as the chamber’s interim manager since the departure of the last executive director, Patti MacAhonic, two months ago. And Gemmell said the chamber hasn’t suffered at all with van den Boom in

charge. “Fieny’s doing a wonderful job for us,” he said. “I would be shocked if we looked anywhere else. She’s just an excellent person. Gemmell continued: “She’s tremendous, and members are saying the

}

same thing. There are a lot of members who are thrilled with her.” Van den Boom joined the chamber about a year ago after she and her husband sold their interest in a UPS store. That history and knowl-

edge of what it’s like to own and run a business allows van den Boom to relate to members and address their concerns, Gemmell said. “Fieny was a business owner in Chilliwack for a number of years and we haven’t had that out of a manager or executive director before. “We haven’t had someone who’s been on the front line of a retail business and dealing with the challenges, so if anybody has an idea of what John Q Small Business Owner is dealing with, Fieny does, because she’s done it herself.”

Don’t underestimate the value of attending monthly Connections

L

ots has happened over the past few months at the Chamber of Commerce. Our executive director, Patti MacAhonic, left us to pursue a political career and I, as the administrative assistant, have stepped in as interim manager. It’s a challenge to fill Patti’s boots, but I’m totally up for it. We need to keep moving forward to make the Chamber an organization all businesses want to belong to. We continue to have our Chamber Connections every third Tuesday of the month, hosted by one of our members. On June 18 the Connections will be held at Canada Lands Corp. at the former CFB Chilliwack, and on July 16 we go to Auburn Residences on Young Road, and Aug. 19 it will be hosted by Money Concepts/Nextlevel Financial on Young Road. Your business card is your ticket to Chilliwack’s premier networking event. On June 20 we have our 10th annual Business on the Green Golf Tourna-

We also give you opportunities to promote your business on our website and in our weekly newsletter that goes to 600plus of your business colleagues. If we build our membership through

growth, our “voice of business” can even be louder and we can accomplish things that individual businesses cannot. We work proactively on behalf of our members to provide value and support for them on every government level.

olf and business go together like bogies and water hazards. It’s no surprise, then, that Tourism Chilliwack and the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business on the Green Golf Tournament is so popular. The event usually sells out and is a great way to both meet fellow businesspeople and get out of the office. This year’s event will take place June 20 at Cultus Lake Golf Course. Chamber president Kevin Gemmell said the event is a great way to meet other businesspeople and celebrate the start of summer. “We almost always have nothing but sunshine,” Gemmell said. “It’s a great opportunity as we kick off summer to take half a day Thursday, get out of your business by 11 o’clock and play some golf and meet and socialize with other businesspeople in the community who are in the same boat as you are.” Gemmell said the nature of golf makes the sport ideal for networking and meeting new people. “If you do it like I do it, you play it with people you don’t work with every day,” he said. “I like to get out and meet different people. “It’s not necessarily the golf. It’s before the round when you’re talking to people; it’s in between holes that you’re talking to different

The Health Benefits of Coconut Oil T he health benefits of Coconut Oil have been long recognized... it has been used in cultures around the world for hundreds of years. Many people use coconut oil as a food staple and as a valuable source of health and healing. The centuries-old use of coconut oil has many scientifically proven health benefits.

Heart Disease - There is a belief that coconut oil - because it contains saturated fats - is unhealthy for the heart. In fact the opposite is true. Coconut Oil is very beneficial for heart health. It contains 50% lauric acid, which helps to prevent heart problems and helps to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. The saturated fats in coconut oil also reduce injury in arteries, helping to prevent atherosclerosis.

Eyeglasses might not be the right diagnosis

(NC)—John Burke says he’s a perfect example of assuming all was well with his health when,in fact, it wasn’t. In the 1970s,Burke was reading and distributing mail as a government worker when he noticed a slight change in his vision.Upon visiting his local optometrist,Burke,at the age of 44,received a surprise diagnosis. “I went into my optometrist’s office thinking I just needed a pair of glasses,”he says.But a pressure reading,which is part of a regular eye examination,indicated he was already living with glaucoma,an incurable eye condition that,if left untreated,can result in blindness. “There were no symptoms,no warning signs. I had glaucoma and didn’t even realize it,”he recalled. Unfortunately,Burke’s story is all too familiar.It is estimated that one in seven Canadians will devel-

op a serious eye disease in their lifetime—and many of those diseases have no symptoms,so they can only be detected through a comprehensive eye exam. Following his diagnosis,Burke says he immediately began treatment for his glaucoma through daily drops and later,eye surgery that helped relieve pressure.Now 86-years-old,he credits that initial eye exam and his early diagnosis for slowing the progression of his vision loss. Burke says his message is simple:for Canadians to get an eye exam from their optometrist, even when their vision doesn’t appear to be compromised. May is Vision Health Month,and CNIB and Doctors of Optometry Canada are calling on everyone to get an eye exam from an optometrist.Visit online at eyesareforlife.ca.

Focus on eye disease

causes damage to the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for seeing fine details, such as reading print or seeing faces. ◗ Diabetic retinopathy occurs when elevated blood sugar (glucose) levels cause blood vessels in the eye to swell, weaken and leak in the retina, resulting in damage to the delicate retinal tissues. ◗ Glaucoma involves damage to the optic nerve most often caused by high pressure inside the eye.

With guidance from CNIB and Doctors of Optometry Canada, here is more information about the four most common eye diseases: ◗ Cataracts are a clouding of the lenses inside the eyes, which can block light from reaching the retina and interfere with vision. ◗ Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

Weight Loss - Coconut Oil is excellent if you are trying to lose weight. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids which help take off excessive weight. It also supports a healthy thyroid function and promotes enzyme

ions t a l u t a r Cong

activity. Coconut Oil also increases your metabolism which results in your body burning more calories.

Digestion - Coconut Oil helps improve your digestive system and it helps to improve digestion problems like irritable bowel syndrome. The saturated fats in coconut oil have anti-microbial properties that combat intestinal bacteria, fungi and parasites that cause indigestion. Coconut oil also helps to improve the absorption of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Immune Support - Coconut oil is good for the immune system. It has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and antiviral properties that strengthen your immune system. A strong immune system is critical to staying healthy. NOW Virgin Coconut Oil is a 100% organic, excellent quality coconut oil that is healthful and healthy. Add it to your diet... you’ll be glad you did! 591 mL

estational diabetes seems to be soaring among pregnant women in the Fraser Valley, but clinics in Chilliwack and Abbotsford aim to slow that number with a research study. This January, the Diabetes Education Centre at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital saw double the number of pregnant women referred to the clinic compared to January 2012 and previous years, said Marcia Foreman, the diabetes dietitian at the clinic.

Study looks at gestational diabetes

“It’s escalating—our classes (for diabetes management) are doubling on us,” she said. In order to deal with the increasing numbers, last year Foreman began to look for a way to decrease the incidence. “At the same time, a Fraser Health Authority (FHA) research competition came up, and I got support from several colleagues. As a team, we won one of the FHA research grants,” she said. The Fraser East research project will use a self-management

model—the acclaimed chronic disease self-management program or CDSMP—to help prevent or reduce the risk of diabetes in women with a history of gestational diabetes. Over the course of six weeks, women aged 19 to 35 who have had gestational diabetes will be given knowledge, skills and encouragement to adopt healthy lifestyles in an effort to prevent the disease. They should not be pregnant now. There will be four groups with 10 to 20 women in each, two conducted

in English and two in Punjabi. Foreman is also thrilled the research project will be a first in the world. While older women who have had gestational diabetes have been studied, this pilot study is the first time using a prevention model for young women of child-bearing age, she said. Gestational diabetes mellitus or GDM is an escalating epidemic leading to higher C-section rates, induced labour, pre-eclampsia and delivery complications such as pro-
