Spreading out Early Success

Dubious distinction for fallen Paramount

Some parents wonder,‘If it’s not broken, why fix it?’



hilliwack’s flattened Paramount Theatre has made it onto the dubious list of worst losses of heritage buildings in 2013, according to the Heritage Canada Foundation (HCF). Calling the decision by city council “shortsighted,” HCF included the Paramount along with the Moose Jaw Civic Centre in Moose Jaw, Sask., and the Hamilton Education Centre in Hamilton, On., both of which were demolished last summer. “Over the past 30 years, Canada has lost 23 per cent of its historic building stock in urban areas and 21 per cent in rural areas,” an intro to the worst-losses list on the HCF website said. “This rate of destruction is disturbing both in terms of lost heritage and increased environmental waste.” The inclusion on the worst losses list isn’t surprising given that a year ago, the HCF had included the Paramount on its top 10 list of most endangered heritage sites in Canada. HCF is a national membershipbased, non-profit organization. In its write-up on the Paramount, the HCF listing says the Save the Paramount group had a proposal that “looked promising” to save the theatre and run it as a repertory-style cinema. But it was the Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) offer to demolish the building at no cost that proved too enticing, leading to the six-to-one vote at city council to demolish. “Luckily the building’s contents went to Chilliwack Museum to be eventually put on display,” the HCF site said. The most recent discussion about the Paramount site at city council was approval to create community gardens on the lot.

Cottonwood owner Cathy Raynor’s daughter Mika, leans over the counter to take her fiver, beams a big smile and exchanges a few friendly words before handing over her pop and popcorn. Katie makes her way into one of the theatres to enjoy the movie, but Mika and Cathy Raynor both know that won’t be her favourite part of the morning. “[Katie] loves to help sweep at the end,” Raynor says with a laugh. “That’s the reason she wants to come, so she can help sweep popcorn, never mind the movie.” Welcome to Cottonwood’s monthly movie day for BY CORNELIA NAYLOR adults with disabilities.

arents of struggling primary students are upset by the Chilliwack school district’s decision to close two of its four socalled Early Success classes. “It’s just heartbreaking,” Diane Alling told the Times. Alling was one of a handful of parents who wrote superintendent Evelyn Novak and the school board urging them to reconsider the closures. Alling’s son, a Grade 2 student at Unsworth elementary, went through the two-and-a-half month program at Watson elementary from January to March, and she said the results were nothing short of miraculous. Before the program, her son’s frustration with reading had sometimes culminated in him throwing books. “He would say to me, ‘Mom, am I dumb? Am I stupid? Why can’t I do this?’” Alling said. But changes came quickly after he entered the Early Success class. “Within two weeks he was coming home, picking up books that were at his level and even a little bit harder, sitting down and really trying to read,” Alling said. “Even now, I’m getting tear-y just talking about it now. It’s so amazing.” She doesn’t think it’s right for the district to shut down the program in what she sees as a money-saving move.

English skills foil rental scam

CLCS program matches tutors with new immigrants


“They’re surprised that it would happen in Canada,” she told the Times. “Which is even more disappointing and even more reason that we want to warn people because, of course, there are crooks here too.” Kim, who moved to Chilliwack from Seoul, Korea in 2010, was looking for a bigger home for his growing young family of five last month. Searching on Craigslist, a cute three-bedroom house on Nicomen Crescent caught his wife’s eye. At $950 per month, including utilities, it sounded too good to be true, but emails from the fraudster (posing as “Dr. Mary Reyes,” a pediatrician living in Texas) assured them money was no object. “Try and understand that its not money that matter to us but what really matter is to have the right person to occupy our apartment and that was the reason why we are not charging any fee on utilities and

ong Sik Kim didn’t think such things happened in Canada. That’s why the Chilliwack resident almost fell for a rental scam involving a Garrison Crossing home. It’s an all-too-common scenario for new immigrants who are still learning English and still have some preconceived ideas about how nice Canadians are, according to Kim’s volunteer Chilliwack Learning Community Society (CLCS) tutor Coralea Towler.

Glaister says organizations like hers, whose mandate is to help clients realize their full potential in society, run on very tight budgets, and opportunities to partner with local businesses like Cottonwood are invaluable. “It’s everything for groups like ours because we can’t access this kind of stuff,” she says. “Even just the community skill of going to a movie. It’s a little bit closed because the public isn’t here, but it gives them the idea of going to the movie and what you do when you go to a movie and how you behave when you go to a movie, so it’s huge.” Raynor agrees. “That’s why we have the great big lineup, because everybody so much enjoys

DR. JINNY KIM to our dental team


he Chilliwack Salvation Army Food Bank has pushed back its major summer fundraiser this year in an effort to avoid the disastrous results it got last year. After generating $16,000 in 2011, the Food Bank’s Christmas in July campaign last year took in only $5,300, a drop of 67 per cent. “It affected our buying power tremendously,” Food Bank manager Don Armstrong told the Times. “We just couldn’t buy what was needed, so we relied more on people bringing in the in the food, and we couldn’t do much more about that either.” Organizers hope moving the two-day fundraiser to the week after the July long weekend (July 5 and 6), will help. “I think what happened last year is that it came too close to the long weekend, so this time we’re waiting until the week after,” Armstrong said.

And they shouldn’t be hard to spot. “Everybody’s going to be dressed in Hawaiian gear so they’ll be sticking out,” Armstrong said.

The idea of breaking out the traditional Christmas kettles at the height of summer came about four years ago as a way to raise money during a time when the food bank tends not to be on the top of everyone’s mind. And the fundraiser is cash focused because the Food Bank’s community partner-

ships allow it to get more for its money than individual citizens do. “We can buy three dollars worth of food for every dollar given to us,” Armstrong said. ◗ Kettles will be out Friday, July 5 from noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday July 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Bad timing strikes again

Funding hasn’t changed SUCCESS, from page 1 But Novak told the Times the district won’t be saving any money by closing the classes at Watson and Little Mountain elementary (the classes will continue at Bernard and McCammon elementary schools). “ The funding has not changed for intervention supports,” she said. “It’s still there. It’s still used for intervention for reading. It just looks different than it did a year ago.” Next year, the district will take the two full-time equivalents (FTEs) of teaching time that went into the classes and spread it out over five different schools. At those schools, teachers with “some skills and knowledge, particularly in the area of early literacy” will have 40 per cent of their time allocated to helping students like Alling’s son in the classroom. Putting extra supports into classrooms instead of pulling kids out and putting them in special programs, is the way of the future in education, according to Novak. “We are one of the last school districts to move away from pulling our at-risk learners out of their home schools, away from their peers, away from what they’re comfortable and familiar with and putting them in a different school and a different setting to provide intervention support,” Novak said. But Alling said the district will be spreading its resources too thin. “Even being at the school, I don’t know how they can dedicate the same amount of time as if they had one concentrated classroom,” she said. She said she hopes the new approach works but doesn’t understand why officials would change a program that worked so well for her son. “If it’s not broken, why fix it?” she said.


Pipeline springs another leak BY PAUL J. HENDERSON

Nick Derksen and Scott Street want to give back to the community with something called “attainable housing.”

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

Building community BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


he goal of home ownership is a distant dream for some. For many others it seems like a tantalizing possibility except for one thing: the down payment. Two local men want to make owning a home a real possibility through a new program called Build Chilliwack. The idea is to provide someone who can afford a certain level of mortgage payment with a non-repayable grant to pay for the down payment. Scott Street and Nick Derksen want to give back to the community and give a deserving person or family what they call “attainable housing,” as opposed to cheap or affordable housing. “Basically the down payment comes from each of the trades that are part of the build,” Street explains. The Build Chilliwack program is a partnership between the two men’s business, Summit Pacific Properties and Chilliwack Community Services. “We believe there is a high congruence between our organizational values,” Street said. The Build Chilliwack program is open now to applications from people who have a minimum combined income of $55,000 a year and can handle mortgage payments of approximately $1,750

s Kinder Morgan seeks feedback about the route for the proposed twinning of its Trans Mountain oil pipeline through Chilliwack, the company has another spill on its hand. The leak of between 20 and 25 barrels—approximately 3,000 to 4,000 litres—of oil was discovered Thursday approximately 40 kilometres east of Hope. The company said there were no safety or health risks identified and no waterways or wildlife were affected. “Site remediation will continue to ensure that the surrounding area is restored to its previous condition,” a Kinder Morgan press release said. “Despite the small volume of oil released, the company response continues to be immediate and thorough with safety as a top priority in protecting people, and the environment as it works toward repairing and bringing the pipeline back into service,” the company said. The pipeline was restarted Thursday evening. The leak came just two weeks after a crack in the line which leaked less than six barrels of oil was discovered near Merritt, . Meanwhile, the company is looking for feedback about routing options for the pipeline twinning project through Chilliwack up until July 9. The $5.4-billion project See PIPELINE Page 14

◗ Opinion

Idiots, morons, fools and cars


don’t know if this thought came to me while I was watching the guy in the rust-red pickup fishtail through a left hand turn on a stale yellow light, or when the driver of the silver luxury sedan almost ran me over in the crosswalk, or when someone in a hatchback almost ripped off my front fender while I was motionless at a red light. This is my big idea for the day: bad drivers are idiots. I know, not exactly revolutionary. But it could be! When in traffic court, the police, Crown lawyers, judges, and witnesses all have to use polite language. The defendant. The driver. Mr. So-and-So. Ms. Whatshername. What if we changed the wording on a driver’s license once a person accumulated a certain number of points for traffic violations? Bad drivers already pay more for their insurance if they rack up points for speeding, driving recklessly, blowing through stop signs, and so forth. So if they hit 10 points, they’re compelled to also get a new driver’s licence. On it will be their new title: Licensed Driver (Idiot). Imagine the delightful change in traffic court when police are testifying. Crown: Please describe for the court exactly what the idiot did. Mountie: Well your honour, the idiot sped through a stop sign and almost ran over a cyclist who


Be Our Guest had the right of way. Then, while we were just getting the lights and sirens going, the idiot went through a school zone at 70. We followed him for half a kilometre before he noticed our lights and finally pulled over, because the idiot was playing a book on tape of The Secret at full volume. Crown: And is that idiot in this courtroom today? Mountie: Yes, it’s that idiot right over there. Aside from the entertainment value for reporters, the public, and officers of the court, this could have at least as much of a chilling effect as more tickets. No one likes to be told they’re an idiot. But some people clearly are idiots, not because of their IQ or their education, but because of their behaviour. You can be a MENSA member with a six-figure salary and be an idiot on the road each and every day, while there are plenty of folks out there who never finished high school who drive with care for others. Being an idiot behind the wheel has very little to do with actual intelligence. It has to do with selfcentredness, a lack of empathy,

and a failure to imagine the consequences of one’s actions. I suggest the following scale for drivers in B.C. If successful, we could maybe export it to other provinces and countries. ◗ Twit - Five points on the licence. If you drive without incident for a year, your status as a Twit will be expunged. ◗ Idiot - 10 points or more on a licence. At this point you’re already paying some pretty hefty ICBC premiums, but that obviously fails to drive home the lesson for some people. Will be expunged by three years of safe driving. ◗ Freakin’ Idiot - 15 or more points on a licence. Congratulations, you’ve graduated from being a garden-variety idiot. Will be reduced to Idiot by a year of safe driving. ◗ Moronic menace - 20 or more licence points. Cannot be revoked, but after five years of safe driving, a notation will be added to your licence saying you are a retired menace. ◗ Future killer - 30 or more points. You are so clearly a danger to yourself and others every time you sit behind the wheel of a car that it’s only a matter of time before you kill or maim someone. ◗ Murderous Fool - If you ever get your licence back after killing someone with your car, this is your designation for life. ◗ Mattew Claxton is a reporter with the LangleyAdvamce.

ith school behind us and summer parties stretching ahead, it’s a good time to give parents a nudge about not providing their kids with access to alcohol. Every year, area hospitals treat hundreds of teens for alcohol poisoning and accidents related to the effects of alcohol. The vast majority of those stats relate to alcohol poisoning. Young brains are not fully formed until approximately the age of 20 or 21. Recent research suggests that young binge drinkers—and binge drinking is the typical pattern—can permanently damage that part of the brain that moderates behaviour in social situations. In other words: lose control at a young age and you dramatically increase the odds of always being at risk of losing control. Knowing this, of course, our health authority and the police wish to limit societal damage. Dealing with it after the fact is expensive both in human and financial terms. Nevertheless, we have to wonder why the health authority claims 80 per cent of Vancouver area teenagers get alcohol from adults. This sensationalism lacks context. “Adults” are not always parents. Surely older brothers, sisters and friends are the more likely source of bootlegged liquor. We have trouble believing that the vast majority of parents are buying fruity vodka drinks for their underaged kids every Friday night. And has anyone heard of fake ID? It’s an industry in high school. Frankly, booze is readily available to any teen who wants it. Modelling how to handle it is as important as who you hand it to.

Early success program is key

Editor: I would like to tell you part of a true story with a happy outcome. The whole story will not be completed for years—he’s a work in progress. At the early age of five, my son was diagnosed with dyslexia. With the help and support of family, friends and teachers, we tutored and helped this little guy through Grade 2 in the public school system. After that he started at a new school in Maple Ridge—James Cameron, a school that specialized in teaching children with learning disabilities using phonics and the Orton-Gillingham method. For three years we drove Bradley daily to school, including mandatory summer school. This schooling provided him with the necessary tools he would need to be able to continue in the public school system. I can’t begin to thank all the people who have contributed to Bradley’s success. And I would like them to know that he has just graduated form BCIT with a diploma in electrical engineering and an automation option—with distinction— along with several scholarships. He is now in the process of being employed by a significant company in his career choice. The basis of Bradley’s education was phonics—specifically the Orton-Gillingham method. By the time Brad had finished his three years at James Cameron, he was reading the Harry Potter books on his own. I find it very frustrating to hear that our school district’s director of instruction has cancelled the early success program. This is a program that teaches phonetically, including the Orton-Gillingham method. They have let go two teachers who have, on their own initiative, broadened their teaching abilities to include these methods. My child will never speak or write French. And it is very nice that the French immersion children are being taken care of. But what about our obligation as a school district and society to provide children with learning disabilities the basic right of an education that teaches them to read?

uted. There are no easy answers to our transportation problems but making villains out of our working people and “taxing them blind” is not the answer. Jack Carradice Chilliwack

Be the Change Need to improve very thankful transportation Editor: Sardis Secondary’s Be Editor: Most of the people who talk about getting other people out of their cars and using some other form of transportation are idealistic dreamers. Our society has evolved around the automobile over the past 100 years and that is reality. Most people have few, if any, reasonable options to the car and changing that is really extremely difficult if not economically impossible. The people driving their cars to work and on business are the contributing members of our society. They are the people that are paying the taxes, supporting their families and driving our economy. We need to do everything in our power to make life easier for these people. Constantly laying guilt trips on our working people and taxing them at every turn has to stop. We need better highway systems and improvements to traffic flow and more and less-costly parking. Paying for these improvements must be spread evenly across all segments of society. Improving the movement of goods and the people who are doing the work benefits our society as a whole so the costs should be evenly distrib-

the Change Committee would like to thank all of the volunteers and donors who helped support our student-led and initiated projects during the 2012-2013 academic year, including the Breakfast Club, Social Justice Art Project, Clothing Exchange, Hygiene Product Bank, School Supply Exchange, Operation Fairly Godmother, Ecomaniacs, Community Club, Multicultural Club, and the Lion’s Club Pop Can Tab collection. We would especially like to thank the following donors, in no particular order: Cottonwood Mall’s Cobs Bread, the Chilliwack Optimist Club, the Alton Family, the Vander Wyk Family; Laurel Morden and Sandi Williams, Sardis secondary’s PAC, the Oasis Outreach Society, and Marilyn (who donates our juice).

The broken window theory Editor: The broken window theory was popularize 35 years ago as a way to look at cities holistically by taking care of the small things like clean-

ing up the litter, graffiti, broken windows, etc. This type of presentation entices crime, social problems, and is unfriendly to education. If we don’t take care of the small things, these issue manifest into bigger issues. It’s good to hear the city is considering changing bylaws to clamp down on property investors who sit on a piece of property without cleaning these eyesores up. In the long run this will help to minimize our social, police, and ambulance issues in the downtown core of Chilliwack. Phill Bruce, paramedic and public safety advisory committee member

Need to keep things cleaner Editor: Two to three times a week I go for nature walks along the Chilliwack River, and there has never been a time where I haven’t come back with a grocery bag full of garbage not to mention my pockets being full as well. Now I know there are three river cleanups a year, however, they are two to three months apart from each other and start midway during that year. The effect that these cleanups have is practically invisible when the other 362 days of the year surround it. Pollution is not seasonal. The majority of the garbage that is used to display the results of the river cleanups is most of the time from the previous days of that week. There are 49 more weeks that year that the pollution gets dragged down and accumulates in the river. This means that fish and other animal habitats become contaminated and who knows, maybe cause the animals to evacuate them and find another place to reside. This is supposed to be beautiful B.C. we live in yet it is too much for us to maintain an effective river cleanup schedule. Once a month should be the minimum if not then on a weekly basis, but we make an event out of it instead of treating it as a responsibility. Cole Pollard Chilliwack

Flying high after Pie Day success


t was a record-setting day for fundraising at the annual Pie Day held Thursday at the Chilliwack Airport Coffee Shop. Last year, Pie Day raised more than $3,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation. This year, owners the Good sisters, Judi, Jacqueline and Tracey, along with their staff, were aiming to get over the $4,000 mark. What a surprise it was when they added up the day’s receipts. In total, the Chilliwack Airport Coffee Shop raised more than $5,445.23 with more than 336 slices of pie and 216 whole pies being sold. One hundred per cent of every pie sold went straight to the Terry Fox Foundation and its

search for a cure. For a small coffee shop that relies on a single oven to bake all their pies, it was an overwhelming response. “We cannot thank everyone enough, this year was a record year,” the sisters said. “Tuesday was a very emotional, overwhelming and fantastic day. Our pie sales wouldn’t have been a success without all of you.” Rollie Fox, Terry’s father, also came out to Pie Day and assisted the Good sisters throughout the day. ◗ For more information about the Terry Fox Foundation, visit

News PIPELINE, from page 7 amounts to a near tripling of the 1,150-kilometre pipeline’s capacity from 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 890,000 bpd. Consultation on routing for the twinned pipe started in May in Alberta, and the company has asked for feedback community by community heading west. At the website at chilliwack the company says the existing pipeline route is preferred for these reasons: “Avoids additional rights-of-way within the community; Vedder River can be protected through horizontal directional drilling; and SCAM, from page 3 know English not good. Maybe you think that is a scam of something. . . . We just trust.” But Kim’s English was good enough to communicate with the neighbour who tipped him off to the scam. “My English getting better,” he said. “In February—terrible.” February is when CLCS hooked Kim up with two volunteer tutors or OWLs (Outreach Workers for Literacy), who each provide an hourand-a-half of tutoring per week free of charge. For Towler, who’s volunteered with the program since 2008, the work is rewarding.

Seek feedback Fraser Valley agricultural resources can be protected during construction.” One commenter on the company’s site has said he or she lives on Montcalm Road and will be directly impacted by the construction. “What could happen if you don’t find an alternative route?” the person asked. In response, someone who claims to be a retired pipeline inspector said that oil pipelines are low pressure and are far less dangerous than gas pipelines.

Free of charge “I learn a lot from them,” she said of her clients, “and I certainly learn a lot about courage and determination.” In return, she helps her charges develop English skills that, to her, are “as basic as food.” And Kim? How have his impressions of Canada and Canadians changed through his rental-scam experience? “Still I like Canada and I like the Canadians,” he said. ◗ For more info about CLCS or the OWL program, visit

NELLES, Murray

Sept. 24, 1961 – June 22, 2013

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Murray Ernest Nelles.

STODDARD, Albert Gordon



Volunteers Needed! Event volunteers required for Giro di Burnaby on July 11, 2013.



Albert Gordon, in his 67th year, peacefully entered into rest at Glacier View Lodge in Comox, BC on June 14, 2013, surrounded by love. Al was predeceased by his parents Hartley McCulloch, and James and Monica Stoddard. He is survived by his loving wife Lynn, his children Shawna (Dale), Brady (Hilary), and Ben; his beloved grandchildren Mia and Ty, his siblings Mary (Bill), Bonnie, Sherry (Bill), John, Jim, and several nieces and nephews. Al was born in Vancouver, BC on November 27, 1946. He served our country for 30 years in the Air Force in the physical education and recreation trade. One of his titles was Athletic Director at Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario in the late '80s. Al loved sports, everything about sports. From coaching to participating, volunteering or just spectating, he loved sports. He taught us all so many life lessons, and he handled his two illnesses with such grace and dignity. A proud, strong and courageous man, we take solace in knowing he is in a better place, pain free. The entire family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the staff at Glacier View Lodge for their amazing care and compassion. The family will have a private Celebration of Life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
