and spray paint walls, to practice screen printing and generally make art something many of them said they had never done before. "A lot of these places we went," said Roberts, "they don't have art in these schools. For a lot of them, it's like their first time painting. And these are like 12 and 13 year olds.

I appreciated the detailed reporting and have enjoyed his work on the issue to date. I have just one minor quibble, concerning the establishment of the citizens' group, ACT Chilliwack. The establishment of ACT was not, in fact, precipitated by the rezoning controversy concerning the waste facility.
Chilliwack hosted Glen Thompson at its inaugural meeting in order to learn more about the issue, the group does not exist solely to address it.
