On Sunday morning hundreds of supporters and volunteers stormed from The Landing headlong into a Hurricane Florence type of monsoon for the annual Terry Fox Run in Chilliwack. It was a small sacrifice for a big cause.

The official t-shirt this year was grey however most wore red that said Team Carter in remembrance of 12-year-old Carter from Chilliwack who lost his battle to cancer.

Livestock Tax Relief

Fraser Valley farmers eligible for federal assistance

Katie Hawkins/Ag.GC.CA

 

xtreme weather conditions have caused feed shortfalls in several provinces, which has led to designated regions in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Quebec being eligible for livestock tax deferral provision.

 

The livestock tax deferral provisions allow livestock producers in prescribed drought, flood or excess moisture regions to defer a portion of their 2018 sale proceeds of breeding livestock until 2019 to help replenish the herd. The cost of replacing the animals in 2019 will offset the deferred income, there by reducing the tax burden associated with the original sale.

 

Eligibility for the tax deferral is limited to those producers located inside the designated prescribed areas. Producers in those regions can request the tax deferral when filing their 2018 income tax returns.

Buying Back Homegrown

Electing people who understand locally produced food and animal care

Myrtle Macdonald, B.Sc., U of Alberta, M.Sc.A., McGill University, Author/Voice file photo

 

wish there were a candidate for Mayor or Council who grew up on a family mixed farm, or who loved visiting relatives on one.  The whole ALR is turning into agribusiness that does not use fertile land.  Dairies should but don't have their cows grazing outside. Chicken farms don't have their chickens outside eating greens. 

My parents always had two or more fields for their cows and also for their chicks and chickens.  While one field was kept locked to grow green again, the other was open for them to go in and out, whenever they wished.  Only the male fowls were sold.  The hens laid eggs in roomy conditions, easy to keep clean.  From early childhood I actually loved that chore and gathering eggs.

Campaign to Elect Heather Maahs/Voice file photo

 

Incumbent Chilliwack SD33 board trustee Heather Maahs (r) with former trustee Martha Weins lay a wreath during the November 2013 Remembrance Day ceremonies.

fter three full terms as a School District 33 trustee, the popular incumbent trustee Heather Maahs is prepared to devote another huge part of her life to Chilliwack. 

One of her goals this term she says is to see a decrease the rise in the reading and math scores of all the students in the district, particularly the grade sevens.

"It is alarming to see such low scores of students at this age," says Maahs. "It is very difficult, although not impossible, for them to catch up. This needs to be a call to arms for the new Board."

Maahs also wants to see a downsizing of Distance Education and closure of Chance School by the current Board.  See more here.
