Real estate study ranks city fourth in B.C. Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Abbotsford ranks number four on a list of top cities and towns in B.C. for real estate investment. The result was released earlier this month in a report created by the Real Estate Investment Network (REIN). The report, called Top British Columbia Investment Towns 2011, analyzes the current and future prospects for real estate investment opportunities in the province, and identifies the top regions that will outperform in the coming decade. Abbotsford finished just behind Surrey, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows and Kamloops, and just ahead of Fort St. John. “Favourable housing prices and an appealing rural lifestyle have led Abbotsford to experience rapid population growth in the last decade, with no signs of stopping any time soon. The city has witnessed an increase in local jobs, with fewer people having to commute out of the city for work,” said Don Campbell, president of REIN. The REIN findings are based on analysis of the latest statistics, economic and social trends and reports from its research staff, along with statistics from Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, Statistics Canada, Multiple Listing Service, Canadian Home Builders Association, regional real estate boards and more. The report looked at several factors: Continued on A7

A Notice to Residents:

Remote Read Water Meters and Bi-monthly Billing Thank you for your patience in the last few weeks as the City has moved to a bi-monthly billing system for water and sewer utilities. Our community has taken a huge step into the forefront of water conservation with the introduction of bi-monthly water bills based on tiered water rates. Connecting increased water usage to higher rates and communicating usage through bi-monthly bills is key to ensuring the 20% conservation goal is met to meet our water needs over the next ďŹ ve years. Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions we’ve received over the last few weeks.

Are these bills an increase to my taxes?

Can I get details on my usage?

No, the water and sewer use previously billed on your taxes is now billed bi-monthly. Your annual taxes will no longer have a water and sewer charge.

Yes, Engineering staff can be reached at 604-864-5511 and can review your hourly usage with you either in person or on the phone. Charts and graphs of usage are available.

Can I pay electronically?

Can you tell if I have a leak?

Utility bills can be paid via the internet or through the telephone banking service offered by your ďŹ nancial institution. Please update your system with the “ACCT NUMBERâ€? as shown on your bill and use the Abbotsford Taxes payee option. Your utility account number is different from your tax account number. The City also offers an auto debit program which will automatically deduct the amount of your bill from your bank account.

Staff can detect large leaks; however, intermittent leaks such as a defective toilet valve are sometimes difďŹ cult to detect. Please contact staff to review your usage if you have questions.

Can I review my data on line? Not yet, but we are hoping to introduce this service next year. Privacy protocols would be established so you could only view your own consumption.

Poll reflects close vote Federal funds, rates affect responses Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Residents remain divided on Saturday’s Stave Lake water project referendum, according to a second telephone poll conducted for the city by Angus Reid. When respondents were asked how they were “currently thinking of voting” on the project, 42 per cent answered they would vote against (28 per cent definitely against and 13 per cent probably against), 37 per cent said they would vote in favour (16 per cent definitely in favour and 21 per cent probably). Twenty-two per cent were unsure (figures are rounded to the closest percentage point). The referendum question asks voters for permission to borrow up to $230 million and enter into public-private partnership to create a new water source and treatment centre. Pollsters then informed respondents about the $65.7 million of

They were also told economic growth would be affected. When again asked how they

would vote, the responses changed. This time 45 per cent voted in favour (18 per cent definitely and 27 per cent probably) while 43 per cent voted against (29 per cent definitely and 14 per cent probably) with only 12 per cent

unsure. During the first water poll in August, also conducted by Angus Reid, similar questions were asked and support for the project changed from 62 per cent to 47 per cent and then 45 per cent, depending on how the questions were worded. Of those polled, 87 per cent said they are likely to vote in the election (57 per cent absolutely certain to vote and 30 per cent very likely) while eight per cent were not likely to vote and five per cent were unsure. Respondents were given three possible situations regarding Abbotsford’s water supply and asked how big a concern they were. Eighty per cent were concerned that Abbotsford’s water rates would rise dramatically, 57 per cent were concerned the city would run out of water and 56 per cent were concerned watering restrictions would increase. When asked specifically about the Stave Lake water project, the top concerns were that the project will not be delivered on budget (79 per cent); private business will play a bigger role in operating local water (68 per cent); the process will be too secretive (67 per cent); the projContinued on A7

Fundraiser for family turns sour Thief steals 60 bags of bottles collected in drive Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

A good deed for a couple coping with the devastating illness of their 10-month-old daughter took a sour turn on Tuesday in Abbotsford. About 60 bags of bottles collected in a drive to raise funds for Andrew Putt and Chelsey Whittle were stolen. Candace Martyn, one of the bottle drive organizers, estimates the collection was worth about $300 to $500. The funds were to go to Putt and Whittle of Chilliwack. Their daughter, Lilee-Jean, has been diagnosed with glioblastoma – an aggressive brain cancer – and had surgery performed on Oct. 21. She is now undergoing chemotherapy. The couple have been by her side at B.C. Children’s Hospital and have been unable to work. Martyn, who is eight months’ pregnant with her second child, and her sister Lisa Kask of Delta are long-time friends of Whittle and wanted to do something to al-

They decided to hold a community-wide bottle drive, and started a Facebook page to tell people about it. Martyn’s friend Alix Daniels, who is almost nine months pregnant, also got involved in the bottle drive and in collecting donations for a swap meet. They have picked up bottles from contributors, and Martyn posted her address

for people to drop them off at any time of the day. They were stored along the side of her home, towards the backyard. The trio have already cashed in a couple of loads and have presented about $500 to the couple. They were expecting to take in the next load soon, but Martyn arrived home from work on Tuesday to see that all but three or four small bags of bottles had been taken. Tire marks could be seen on the grass. “We’re absolutely devastated. We have worked so hard to collect the funds, and they’ve been stolen. Not just stolen from our fundraiser, but stolen from a family in need,” Martyn said. She said the bottle drive will continue, and the items are now being stored in her basement. Martyn can be contacted by email at candacemartyn@hotmail.com or by phone at 778-552-3513. For more information, visit the “Love For Lilee” page on Facebook, or the website loveforlilee.com.

NewsBytes COUGAR SIGHTING? An Abbotsford Police officer who turned up to check on a reported cougar sighting and saw an orange domestic tabby on the scene thought the caller had made a mistake. But then the caller pointed out the massive claw marks on the trunk of the tree from which she had seen the cat descend. “The spacing on the claw marks was significant,” said Const. Ian MacDonald. Police believe the sighting was legitimate. It was reported at about 4 p.m. on Tuesday from a woman living in an apartment in the area of Tims Street and George Ferguson Way. MacDonald said the woman was the only one to report to police that a cougar had been seen in the busy residential area. The local conservation office was notified, but did not attend. Authorities believe the cat quickly made its way to a bush area, MacDonald said.

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Police believe the recent halt in a series of business robberies could be due to the release of a photo showing a suspect in one of them. The picture, showing a hooded man pointing a real or fake handgun at a gas station attendant during a robbery on Oct. 12 on Sumas Way, was released by police on Nov. 1 and has been posted in newspapers and on websites. There have been no further robberies since that time. Const. Ian MacDonald said the man in the photo – taken from video surveillance – has been identified to police through several tips, but has not yet been located. MacDonald said an image of a suspect in another robbery – at a gas station on Riverside Road on Oct. 6 – has not resulted in any tips, but the picture is not as clear. He said the halt in activity could be because the man who has been identified is responsible for many of the

A robbery suspect was caught on camera during a gas station hold-up. Since the photo was circulated in the media and on websites, local incidents have ceased. robberies that have occurred and has now gone into hiding, or other suspects are more conscious that they could find themselves in the same situation and are laying low. Abbotsford recorded 12 business robberies from Sept. 4 to Oct. 31, and arrests have been

made in only four of them. Among the unsolved ones are five at Subway restaurant locations. Anyone with information about any of the robberies is asked to call Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

On November 19 Community Leaders’ Positions on

Say YES to water.

the Stave Lake Water Project Sat Gill Investment Advisor, HSBC Bank of Canada “As our city continues to grow, more and more demand is being placed on our water system. We need to ensure that we have an adequate water source and without this plan, my fear is that the other options will be more expensive. Stave Lake is an investment in the future of our city and is the most prudent from a taxpayer standpoint.” Ross Siemens President, Hub Motor Service “Abbotsford has been my family’s home for 5 generations. Stave Lake is part of building a vision and future for our city. It’s our turn to prepare our city for the next generation of citizens.”

Jasbir Manku Accountant, J Manku & Co Accountants “Our success tomorrow depends upon our plans today. I would urge my fellow citizens to consider the following. A $65 million dollar grant will be given to the City if this project goes ahead. Further, in difficult economic conditions, this project will create 255 full time jobs for a 3-year period. If this project does not go ahead, we will not receive a grant. Instead, the City will have to borrow $65 million, and pay $35 million in interest on this amount. That is $100 million of your tax dollars that can be put to better use. Therefore, I urge you all to vote “Yes” for the Stave Lake Water Project.” Marcus Janzen President, Calias Farms Ltd. “The long term security of Abbotsford requires a stable and secure supply of water. As a farmer I am particularly aware of this need.”

John Sutherland School Trustee “A P3 is the best strategic choice. This enables Abbotsford to benefit from a federal contribution of $65.7 million. A stable water supply is essential for a healthy community in every sense.”

Mayor George Peary “As early as 2016, we are facing a serious threat to our ability to supply Abbotsford with sufficient amounts of water. It is up to all of us today to ensure that our water supply remains safe, constant and abundant. By supporting the Stave Lake Project, we will address water supply concerns for ourselves, for our children, and for our grandchildren.” Honourable Ed Fast Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, Government of Canada “Our non-repayable contribution of $65.7 million to this project builds on the success of similar PPP Canada projects. Building new infrastructure, while improving what we have has been widely recognized as an effective way to stimulate the economy.“ Honourable Mike de Jong Minister of Health, Province of BC “Our need for water won’t go away, and the costs will go up, not down — this is not politics, this is local common sense.”

Don Beer Fire Chief, City of Abbotsford “The Stave Lake Water Project will provide a reliable source of water that will fulfill the requirements of recharging the City reservoirs any time of the year, along with providing redundancy for ensuring an essential supply of water for fire fighters when required.”

INFORMED DECISION MAKING • HONESTY & INTEGRITY • COMMUNITY & FAMILY VALUES

Election day Tomorrow is election day as Abbotsford voters head to the polls to elect a mayor, eight councillors, seven board of education trustees, and decide the fate of the proposed Stave Lake water project. Bill Flitton, chief election officer, confirmed that polls are open on Saturday (Nov. 19) from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Results will be available after the polls close at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium (32315 South Fraser Way) and on the City of Abbotsford website at www. abbotsford.ca. The Abbotsford News will also be reporting results at www.abbynews.com. While voting machines will be

used, Flitton said results will not come in instantaneously. “The machines have voting cards in them that we have to extract the data from, put it into a card reader and then publish the results.” In total, there are 27 polling machines providing results, including two advanced polls and a special voting opportunity for people in residential care facilities who can’t get out. Results will not be considered official until Monday, when presented to council. During the last civic election, in 2008, 27,959 people cast a vote (33.5 per cent of the 81,557 eligible voters).

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Water project

Casting your ballot, did you feel adequately informed on civic issues?

The strength of this city has always been those who give of their time, talent and resources to make a positive contribution. Not those who sit idly by and make sniping comments. Abby–guy

To answer, go to abbynews.com

The basis for this (AECOM) report was a peak that we reached on one day in 2007, which we have never reached again after that day. My information is that our water consumption has dropped 33 per cent after this. I think there are other options out there. I don’t like the idea how private companies take over things that should stay in public hands. I voted no and hope there are enough people out there that will not be captured by the fear that is being spread around. CorinnaL

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Are Remembrance Day ceremonies important to your family? 178 RESPONDED:

So, in the meantime we say ‘no’ to everything until we can get the people we want in place and then we can vote ‘yes’ to something. What if that never happens? You’d rather risk a water problem than deal with it right now. Details 982

YES: 76% NO: 24%

Local government neglected again Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views The red-headed stepchild of democracy is shivering on the doorstep again. Most won’t open the door. Local government elections are always overshadowed by louder events, and this year is no different. The “occupy” nonsense, the teachers’ strike, the precarious economy and the media’s fixation on them are part of the problem. But let’s face it. Public indifference to local government has left it mainly to self-serving politicians and special interest groups. Community newspapers soldier on through the three years between elections to highlight issues and choices, but few people join the debate when it’s time to vote. The recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention demonstrated this. Local politicians love to tell senior governments what to do. They’d much rather debate smart meters or bad old Ottawa’s RCMP costs than talk about their own

performance. Most of the mayors and councillors on hand were unhappy with the province’s plan to appoint a municipal auditorgeneral to examine the efficiency of municipal spending. Just another layer of bureaucracy, according to these experts on the subject. At the convention, I asked NDP MLA Carole James about this. A veteran of local government, she observed that it would be awkward for local politicians to go back to their communities and campaign against accountability. There is much that is not discussed and it goes beyond technical details like performance auditing. How about amalgamation in places where there are clearly too many municipal boundaries, policing is fragmented and administration is duplicated? You won’t hear much about that, unless a lot more voters insist on it. Business groups and community newspapers raise it, and it fades away. Not enough people care. Few challengers and even fewer incumbent politicians signed the taxpayers’ pledge offered up at local election time by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. It’s a modest proposal to match spending growth with real growth.

Candidates don’t want to talk about the fact that B.C. municipal spending, adjusted for inflation, is now growing almost four times as fast as population growth. Pay and benefits for municipal employees grow much faster than private sector rates. Not enough people care. The Canadian Union of Public Employees is campaigning against contracted private development of water utilities.

Public indifference to local government has left it mainly to selfserving politicians and special interest groups They prefer their high-cost monopoly. And outside their special interest support, not enough people care. School board elections have become even more of an insider activity. To take one example, a school trustee candidate forum in Abbotsford last week started with a protest march by 18 teachers. They

carried their message inside, demanding smaller classes, more special needs support, the familiar list of demands in their dysfunctional relationship with the provincewide bargaining agent. Of course school trustees have no actual authority over these huge and costly issues. The province took away school board taxing authority long ago, because the teacher and support staff unions have the money and voting numbers to control low-turnout local elections for their own benefit. Now the unions have to settle for vetting candidates according to their willingness to lobby the B.C. government on behalf of unions. (If anyone has attended a trustee forum that wasn’t taken over by teachers, please e-mail me. I haven’t heard of one for years.) There are still things you can do to compare candidates, and it doesn’t take long to sort through a dozen or two hopefuls. Please, check this paper’s website for recent surveys and stories on the local candidates, and take some time on Saturday to back the people who you think have the best experience, independence and understanding of the community’s needs. Occupy the voting booth. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

JOHN SMITH

Average Joe pays for city mistakes I have lost faith in city council and the mayor. On their recommendation we have already taken on a debt load for some futuristic projects that exceed common sense. Now we are being advised to buckle up, that more hits are coming to the pocketbook. What happened to common sense? Why is more growth or any growth good, whatever the cost? Why do we not practise restraint in this era of shaky global economics? It always comes back to the little people, the average Joe living in Abbotsford, whose responsibility it is to pay for every bad or questionable decision that comes from city hall. D. Erickson

co-workers and neighbours to organize community information events, and contributed financially to the Water Watch campaign when asked. I personally have spoken at several events which the press has consistently refused to cover. As municipal workers we put the public first and in this case that means keeping our drinking water public. Just look around the world where this type of P3 project has been tried. It would give up control of our water distribution to a foreign consortium for the next 30 years. We are opposed to this P3 project because the motive is private profit.

Our motive is to serve our community with transparency, responsibility and safety first. Our members include the highly qualified Water Treatment Operators at the Norrish Creek Water Treatment Plant which supplies the bulk of Abbotsford’s daily water and our community has never had a boil-water advisory. We know what is involved in ensuring clean, safe drinking water for all and want to keep the system transparent and accountable to the public through continued public operation. Murray Jones President CUPE 774

Mission missing out on savings

At the recent Mission all-candidates meeting there were a number of candidates, including current councillors, who were opposed to the ‘privatization’ of our water, yet ironically most of them were drinking bottled water from a private company. I decided to investigate how Abbotsford residents have the opportunity to vote on their future water source and Mission residents are left out. A close review of the April 4 council meeting minutes provided the answers. The meeting was a presentation of the Deloitte report and questions from the public. Having been a member of Mission council from 1999 to 2008, the speakers were all very familiar to me. The first group speaking against were local and provincial union activists, mainly CUPE, whose stated mandate is to oppose private companies. The second identifiable group were members of CAUSS, who have always been opposed to economic development in the form of Mission’s future housing in southwest Mission. Mission council should have decided to get the opinion of the broader community in a referendum. Sadly, four councillors in Mission (one whose election campaign was financed by CUPE) took the right for me to vote on how to spend my tax dollars away from me and my fellow taxpayers. My interest in our joint water supply was intense during my nine years on council and as a member of the Abbotsford/Mission Water

Commission. There are many factors to consider including the safety of the water, financial and general maintenance. During my time serving on the water commission I was determined to avoid the situation that occurred in Walkerton, Ontario. That was a public utility, yet things went deadly wrong. Protocols around monitoring and testing for pathogens were lacking. As a commission, we made certain the water system is constantly monitored and the private lab testing of the water for pathogens has the results reviewed by staff as well as a report to the commission to ensure the process was followed. All the same rigid protocols can be included in the new P3 contract so we can continually be assured of good quality water. P3s have been successful, especially when a team of skilled lawyers and engineers are in our corner ensuring the contract is carefully crafted to address the concerns of the residents. The financials are clear that there is a saving of about $85 million over the life of the contract. Sadly, that savings will go to the taxpayers in Abbotsford, while we in Mission didn’t get the same opportunity to vote in the referendum. Now, we in Mission are going to be faced with much higher water bills without a chance to vote and use the P3 model to keep costs under control. Abbotsford council got it right. John Pearson

I have noted the report with respect to the decision by council for Abbotsford to leave the Fraser Valley Regional District. This decision clearly indicates why we need a new mayor and a change in council. If you are quoting George Peary correctly when he reportedly states, “Our motive is what is the best value for our taxpayers,” I can only ask George Peary why he

considers it proper to take money from the pensions of seniors to place it in the hands of the NHL – after all the AHL is simply an arm of the NHL. The NHL can afford to play individual players millions of dollars each. They do not need any monies from the taxpayer. The cost of this far exceeds the suggested $750,000 as our contribution to the FVRD, and we basically get

nothing from the AHL, whereas we have real tangible benefits from being part of the FVRD. I might even suggest we have a duty to continue our involvement, as we are definitely within this district. From my observations over the last several years I am confident that George Peary and the majority of our present council are much more interested in placating the

In regards to your article ‘FVRD divorce draws fire.’ As I read this, I feel there is a desire to go on to bigger and better things, as politicians see them. In time, Abbotsford will be trying to join Metro. That will also mean membership in that other top-heavy bureaucracy TransLink, which means to the simple taxpayer more taxes, and for what – a few extra busses? The bigger it gets, the more you will be lost in the shuffle. As a Translink employee and knowing Metro employees, you better stay where you are. Be afraid, very afraid, as we read about shadow tolls on the Sea to Sky Highway as part of the P3 contract. Metro and TransLink would love the tax dollars from residents of Abbotsford and Mission.

CEO Blair Qualey said. “B.C. is now one of those markets.” Battery-powered electric cars cost as little as $300 per year in electricity compared to $1,500 or more for a gas-powered vehicle. Homeowners can also get an up to $500 rebate through LiveSmartBC if they install dedicated electric vehicle battery charging stations in their homes. That covers about a third of the cost of the specialized outlets, which cut recharging times in half to about six hours. Victoria also pledged $6.5 million for electric vehicle charging points and upgrading existing hydrogen fueling stations.

Minimum wage still too low says B.C. Fed

Royal City Youth Ballet Company Society proudly pro udlyy prese presents, ents, fo forr th the he 23rd se season eason

FREE VISION EXAMS AGES 19 - 64

Tom FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. Federation of Labour campaigned for four years for a $10-an-hour minimum wage, and that will be delivered May 1 when B.C.’s wage goes to $10.25. But federation president Jim Sinclair visited the legislature Wednesday to tell the B.C. government it’s no longer enough. He wants another increase next fall to $11.25 an hour. That rate is what is needed to keep up with Statistics Canada’s “low-income cutoff ” (LICO), Sinclair told reporters. Critics often use LICO as a measure of poverty, although the federal agency says it is not, since it is a relative measure that grows along with inflation and economic growth. “Today the minimum wage is $9.50. That’s the second lowest in Canada, still,” Sinclair said. “Today, if we were at the LICO level, it would be at $11.25 an hour.” Premier Christy Clark announced in March that the minimum wage would be raised for the first time in a decade, and the $6 an hour “training wage” was abolished. It went from $8 to $8.75 on May 1, and jumped another 75 cents on Nov. 1. A third 75-cent increase takes effect next May 1. After the increase to $11.25, Sinclair said government should meet with business and labour to decide how the minimum wage should keep up with the cost of living. B.C. Labour Minister Margaret MacDiarmid met with Sinclair before his news conference Wednesday. “Our promise is, starting in 2012, to look at our policy,” MacDiarmid said afterwards. But she would make no commitment beyond next May.

Metal thieves attack wired world

Tom FLETCHER Black Press

Believes in reducing government spending, not in raising your taxes. “Now more than ever we need political leaders who know the issues and can make tough decisions. We need political leaders who have integrity to burn. In short, we need smart and sensitive political leaders who we can trust to work in the best interest of the community. Bill MacGregor is every much that kind of leader. That’s why I am voting for Bill.” Dr. Darryl Plecas, Recipient of Order of Abbotsford

• Twitter.com/WRMacGregor • Facebook.com/DrBillMac • Facebook.com/ElectBillMacGregor • www.billmacgregor.com

With copper trading at more than $3 a pound, thefts of phone wire have become a daily occurrence in B.C., and the B.C. government is tightening rules for scrap metal sales in an effort to stop it. Police say it’s not just power and phone lines being targeted now. Aluminum ladders, billboards, grave markers, street signs and even manhole covers are being stolen. Construction sites are targeted for plumbing and wiring. A bill before the B.C. legislature will require metal sellers to register for a “customer code” that must be recorded along with the description of any metal sold. The approach is similar to that taken with B.C. pawn shops, where operators must have transaction records to show police. Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond said the

phone and electric grids are vulnerable, as well as 911 service, and she wants the federal government to consider new penalties for theft from critical infrastructure. “Good security and surveillance equipment doesn’t always stop the thieves from coming back again and again, especially when your metals are necessarily in remote locations, or distributed along hundreds of kilometres of roads,” Bond said. “Even though many scrupulous recyclers consistently turn away shady characters, somebody keeps buying, and that has to stop.” Telus executive Dave Cunningham said 2011 has been a particularly bad year, with 325 wire thefts so far. The Fraser Valley is a “hotbed” for organized theft, leaving piles of insulation casings and in some cases downed wires across highways.

After-school funding for 12 sites

The Real Estate Store • West Oaks Mall

Ten elementary schools and two middle schools in Abbotsford have been designated to receive a total of $300,000 for after-school programs. The announcement was made at the board of education meeting on Monday night. The schools were selected based on criteria related to student vulnerability. The funding is from a $6 million surplus that the school district recorded in its 2010-11 budget. The money will cover two years of

programming that each school will develop based on its own needs. Some will expand current programs while others will create new ones. These include areas such as recreation, life skills, fine arts, and academic support. In some schools, learning opportunities for parents will be offered. “Sustained participation in afterschool programming is one of the most important factors in ensuring improved academic success,” stated Kevin Godden, school district superintendent, in a report presented to the board of education.

Under the guidelines set by the district, each school will identify students who are not meeting expectations in reading and/or math, and provide a minimum of one hour of support at least three times a week. An estimated 450 students will receive support through this programming, Godden said. Two middle schools – Abbotsford and Howe – were selected for the funding, as were 10 elementaries: Alexander, Centennial, Dormick Park, Godson, Jackson, John Maclure, Margaret Stenersen, Ross, Ten-Broeck and Terry Fox.

Abbotsford News Friday, November 18, 2011

Open Letter to the Citizens of Abbotsford Re: Stave Lake Water Project On behalf of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce we are pleased to offer our support to the Stave Lake Water Project. The Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business in this community and our role is to bring a business perspective to the development of commercial, agricultural, industrial, civic, and social welfare of the community and to represent Chamber views to the public. At our board of directors meeting held last month, the Board voted to endorse the Stave Lake Water Project contingent upon Federal Funding (which has now been confirmed), and enhanced conservation initiatives. The Chamber believes that while conservation is vital and must form part of the long-term plan, that conservation alone will not provide the safety or capacity needed for growth. We believe that such a large project should require a significant portion of the investment be made to local businesses and create local jobs. The Board sees value in the development of this project and has since received confirmation of support from the following Board of Governors: James Barlow, Fiona Brett, Karen Young, Patricia Sapielak, John Friesen, Allan Asaph, Satvir Gill and Rita Walker. The Chamber’s Board of Governors is made up of its past presidents. We would like to encourage the voting public to take a closer look at the Stave Lake Project and what it means to the economic well-being and prosperity of our City. It is the Chamber’s desire to create an environment where communities and governments work together to achieve balanced, well planned and sustainable communities. Future growth and development of our agriculture and manufacturing sectors are contingent upon the provision of water required in their processes. It is imperative that the economic drivers in our community are guaranteed the resources they require to ensure the continued growth and development within those industries. The Chamber has determined that the Stave Lake Project is the only viable option that will ensure Abbotsford’s future development can be maintained. Sincerely, Patrick Giesbrecht 2011/13 President

We are completely supportive of the referendum and voted “YES”. If our community is to continue growing, it can only be done if businesses, developers and citizens know they have ample access to a reliable, trustworthy source of water”. Christine & Chuck Wiebe “Our family has had the privilege of calling Abbotsford our home for Àve generations. Abbotsford has been a wonderful place for our family to grow and to thrive. We are so fortunate that previous generations had the vision and the passion to build a city that is both prosperous and generous. Now is our time to look forward with a vision. We support the Stave Lake Water project as an investment in our future.” Ross Siemens, Hub Motors “For our family and our 70 employees here in Abbotsford, we require a secure source of clean water to serve our clients every day. We believe a secondary water source is necessary for our current needs and most important so we can keep our business here in Abbotsford.” Randy Bartsch, President & Owner ECOTEX HEALTHCARE LINEN SERVICE 4th generation, born and raised here in Abbotsford

“Without a guaranteed source of water it will be impossible for the population of Abbotsford to secure the quality of life we have come to cherish and that’s why I’m voting to support the Stave Lake Water Project.” Gerry Swan, Athletics Coach “As an owner of a growing business in this, our dynamic and changing city, I feel it’s important that we pay attention to the stability of our most fundamental resource — water. The plan we will vote on is the result of a rigorous and thorough process and I feel very conÀdent this is the right time and the right approach for the businesses, families and individuals of Abbotsford.” Shawn Neumann, with Domain 7 “For my 50 employees; and my family and I, the Stave Lake water project is a vital, necessary step in Abbotsford continuing to grow in a sustainable manner. We need it to sustain and produce good jobs for future generations. We need to look 50 or 100 years down the road and see what our community needs to grow and not simply stagnate from a lack of vision.’’ Dave Krahn , Owner Krahn and Associates Engineering

Youth Unlimited’s SafeRide Home program has begun its 20th year of service to youth in Abbotsford, Mission and Aldergrove. The program, which

began in September 1992, provides free rides home every weekend, thanks to donations from individuals, businesses and organizations such as the Kiwanis

are girls. Al Maclean began the program in 1992 after three teens he knew were killed in impaired driving accidents within one year. For the first 10 years,

the program operated with Maclean using his own car. In 2002, money became available to purchase a vehicle, and Maclean selected a Honda Odyssey mini van because of its safety rating. Last year, an Abbotsford businessman offered to lease a new Odyssey for the program’s use. Honda Way in Abbotsford ensures the vehicles are mechanically safe, and volunteers offer their time to drive the teens. McKellan said an increase in gas prices has resulted in a need for more donations. For more information, call 604-835-0380 or email doug@youthunlimited.com.

Salmon inquiry final debate targets fish farms

Jeff NAGEL

Black Press

The Cohen Inquiry is being urged to recommend the removal of ocean-based salmon farms from the B.C. coast – even if science has yet to prove the farms are to blame for the decline of Fraser River wild sockeye stocks. Gregory McDade, the lawyer acting for a coalition of groups opposing salmon farms, said in his final submission last week it would be wrong to leave farms in the water while scientists study the risks to passing sockeye for another five to 10 years. “The real issue here is proof versus risk,” McDade told Justice Bruce Cohen, who is heading the probe of Fraser salmon returns. “The risk here is real. Don’t wait for 10 years until this is proven and we have no fish left.” The potential role of aquaculture has been the most acrimonious topic for the inquiry, which was named in 2009 to investigate the steep plunge in Fraser sockeye returns that year. But two researchers dispatched by the inquiry to investigate the impact of farmed salmon came back in September deeply divided on the severity of the threat. No smoking gun emerged that pointed to a single pathogen or illness – or other potential cause – for the decline. “Which particular disease and when is not the issue,” McDade said. “We’re creating a dramatically changed environment every time we create a fish farm.” He disputed aquaculture industry claims farmed fish are generally healthy and said the year-round presence of large populations of farmed salmon in water where wild runs pass by is inherently dangerous. Every other fish farming country has suffered devastating disease outbreaks, he said. “Do we have to wait for that to occur before we do something about it?” McDade asked. “Put them where the

wild salmon aren’t migrating.” Provincial government representatives said some scientists who appeared before the commission spoke beyond their areas of expertise, feeding what one expert witness termed “pure speculation” that farms are harming wild stocks. “It is unlikely that aquaculture caused the long-term decline in productivity of Fraser River salmon

or the decline in 2009,” said the province’s Tara Callan in B.C.’s final submission. “The evidence points to global features, including marine ecology and climate change,” added Clifton Prowse, another member of the provincial legal team at the inquiry. Aquaculture accounts for 39 per cent of B.C. seafood exports, accounting for 6,000 direct and

indirect jobs and $348 million in annual revenue, the inquiry heard. The Cohen Inquiry will reconvene in mid-December to consider evidence on the threat from ISA virus. Federal tests have so far found no sign of the virus in sampled fish, contradicting earlier tests commissioned by independent researchers. Cohen is to deliver his final report by June.

Eagle festival returns to Mission

The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival is set to happen this weekend on Harrison River, and there is a full calender of activities. More than 7,300 bald eagles were counted from a jet boat tour last year, and this season offers all of the popular attractions designed to help visitors see the majestic birds.

There will be interpreted walking tours, authentic aboriginal dancers and artisans, a traditional salmon barbecue and jet boat tours. The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce has festival programs and other information. There are number of scheduled events and activity centres in Harrison and sur-

rounding areas. The Exhibitor’s Fair and Laq’a:mel Hall in Deroche features 30 educational, environmental and nature displays, arts and crafts from locals, and activities for kids. Tapadera Estates on Morris Valley Road in Harrison Mills has a viewing tent for eagles, and scheduled wildlife speakers, such as salmon biologist Matt

Foy and eagle biologist David Hancock. Eagle Point Community Park provides viewing opportunities in the Chehalis River Estuary of not just eagles, but also trumpeter swans and other waterfowl. An on-site park ranger will be there to answer questions. If you’d prefer a comfortable visit, the Sandpiper Golf

Health CEO Dr. Nigel Murray said. “This protocol will help to decrease falls and keep seniors in their own homes.” Fabio Feldman, Fraser’s manager of seniors fall and injury prevention, estimated the vitamin D supplements can prevent 10 to 25 per cent of falls in care homes. He said that could translate into 1,000 fewer falls per year in Fraser. The region was responding to research that shows high levels of vitamin D deficiency in older seniors in Canadian residential care homes. Vitamin D can help strengthen muscles, which is important in maintaining balance and mobility. Officials also cite other vitamin D benefits, such as a possible reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer, along with potentially improved immune response and a n t i - i n fl a m m at o r y benefits.

Making a team effort

A29

Melissa WELSH Abbotsford News

Two Abbotsford locals are hoping their efforts will aid the fight against diabetes. Vanessa Kuipers and James Grill are members of Team Diabetes, and both will raise money to compete in athletic events in the new year. In exchange, they will receive free airfare, accommodations, and entry for their events in Costa Rica and Rio de Janeiro. Grill was just recently told that he was pre-diabetic. The news came as a shock to the 48-year-old, who considered his eating habits to be healthy. Unfortunately, some of those menu items fell on a list of high-glycemic foods. Grill was relieved to know why he was feeling unwell. He would shake before eating, and often felt extremely hungry after a short period of time. Wanting to do something for himself and to raise awareness, Grill joined the team. Now, he is preparing to travel to Costa Rica on May 6 to hike the Rincon de la Vieja volcano. The Conquer the Volcano challenge involves trekking up to the summit at 1,805 metres, with an elevation gain of 915 metres. “I’ve never done anything like this,” he says.

Vanessa Kuipers poses with a medal provided by the BMO Financial Group, after finishing her second marathon for Team Diabetes in the Okanagan in 2010. His girlfriend Darlene had a brother who passed away from pancreatitis, a condition related to diabetes. This year, he would have turned 50. “A lot of people like me realize that they are on the wrong path with their health. They take on something like this in order to turn the corner.” While Grill needs to raise a minimum of $6,100, he is hoping to hit the $25,000 mark. Kuipers joined the program shortly after her daughter was diagnosed with the disease at

age five. Her first event was in 2010. Held at Reykjavik, Iceland, Kuipers ran the 10-k race in honour of her husband, who passed away from Crohn’s disease in 2009. This July, she will travel to Rio de Janeiro to compete in another marathon, her third event. “I’m not a fast runner, but if my daughter and millions of other people have to inject themselves daily with insulin Continued on A30

The program is supported with contributions from the Mitchell Odyssey Foundation and BCIT’s School of Energy. Meanwhile, students at Abbotsford Middle School are also explo-

ring future careers in STEM-related fields. The school recently started a Science, Technology, Trades, Engineering, and Math (STTEM) program for students. With technology

teacher Mike Howe, students study applied science concepts and rotate through 10 areas: robotics, flight simulation, CNC machining, architectural drafting (CAD), bridge building, gravity, alternative energy, graphic design, animation, and rocket science. Tebbutt said STEM learning is “fun and engages learners because it is projectbased.” Grade 8 students focus on one area, culminating in a final project that they present to their peers as well as other program partners. In addition, the school district’s career program department is working with local business and postsecondary partners to increase student awareness about future STEM career possibilities.

For School Trustee

The study of robotics has now reached the middle school level in Abbotsford. Grade 7 students from W.A. Fraser Middle School are the first to take part in a pilot program offered by Yale Secondary robotics teacher Dereck Dirom. The students will attend Yale Secondary for approximately six hours this semester to discover the world of robotics. They will work in teams of three to design, build and program a basic robot that will interact with its environment, using the LEGO Mindstorms NXT platform. Patti Tebbutt, district career programs principal, said robotics programs are an “excellent opportunity” for students to apply STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) con-

Oregon Ducks photo

Oregon Ducks linebacker Boseko Lokombo celebrates after returning a blocked punt 25 yards to the end zone against Washington State on Oct. 29.

Bo knows touchdowns Mouat grad Lokombo turning defence into offence with NCAA's Oregon Ducks Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Fans of the NCAA’s Oregon Ducks are learning what Abbotsford football observers have known for years – that Boseko Lokombo has a nose for the end zone. Back in 2008, after all, Lokombo racked up a province-leading total of 32 touchdowns as a running back during a memorable senior season with

the W.J. Mouat Hawks. Lokombo’s days as a touchdown machine were supposed to be history, more or less, when he headed south of the border – the Ducks use him exclusively as a linebacker. But on those rare occasions when he does get his hands on the ball, Lokombo keeps making things happen. This season alone, the sophomore has scored

a trio of TDs – on a 67yard interception return against Nevada on Sept. 10; on a 25-yard return of a blocked punt against Washington State on Oct. 29; and on a 40-yard interception against Stanford last Saturday. Factor in the fumble he recovered and ran back 32 yards for a score against Arizona State last season as a freshman, and we might as well start calling

him Big Play Bo at this point. “It’s been a great year,” Lokombo, 21, marveled in an interview with The News on Wednesday. “I’m working really hard – learning the defence better, watching film, preparing for upcoming games, and just trying to make plays. “I’ve always been a playmaker, and I want to keep making big plays and al-

ways be around the ball.” Lokombo’s pick-six against Stanford last Saturday was particularly special. Not only did it put the finishing touches on a huge 53-30 win for the Ducks on national TV, but it also came against Andrew Luck, the Stanford senior pivot who has been touted as the best quarterbacking prospect since Peyton Manning.

Luck is so talented, he’s inspired a so-called “Suck for Luck” campaign among NFL fans – where supporters of bottomfeeding teams openly root for their teams to lose to enhance their chances of picking him No. 1 overall in next year’s NFL draft.

Heat loan Wahl to Bulldogs Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

At this point last season, Mitch Wahl was regarded as an indispensable cog in the Abbotsford Heat forward corps. On Thursday, the 21-year-old centre from Seal Beach, Calif. was loaned to the Hamilton Bulldogs. At first glance, it’s an eyebrow-raising transaction, given Wahl’s status as a secondround draft pick by the Calgary Flames in 2008. But it reflects the Heat’s vastly superior depth this season, and the amount of ground Wahl has to cover as he comes back from head injuries which cost him most of the 2010-11 campaign. Last year, as a rookie on the youngest team in the league, Wahl was Abbotsford’s firstline centre on opening night. This year, with newcomers like Ben Walter and Paul Byron (currently on recall with the Calgary Flames) in the fold and returnee Greg Nemisz seeing a lot more time in the middle, top-six forward minutes have been comparatively difficult to come by. Wahl has also been shaking off rust after missing all but 17 games last season. He sustained facial fractures and a concussion in a game against the Manitoba Moose on Nov. 27, 2010, courtesy of a devastating openice check from Aaron Volpatti. Wahl had already done a stint with the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies this fall, notching five goals and two assists in five games. In five games with the Heat, he did not register a point while posting a -2 rating. Q The Heat made two other transactions on Thursday, as forward Justin Dowling was re-

The Heat’s next home games are Nov. 25 and 27, when they host the San Antonio Rampage at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.

Vote for Conservative Kevin Chapman # BF079497A

I have known Kevin Chapman for 5 years and I wholeheartedly endorse him for Abbotsford Council. Kevin is a client of mine, his business has done work for me and we are volunteers together for the Conservative Party of Canada. I have seen firsthand his commitment to Christian charity, ethical business practices, and to Conservative values. I would like to point out to the 32,493 people in Abbotsford who voted Conservative in 2011 that Kevin has been the local Conservative riding’s most tireless volunteer over the past 5 years.

I believe that Kevin is a candidate that Abbotsford voters will find to be very agreeable with their political views. Unlike some of the other candidates in this race Kevin has received no union endorsements, nor is he an endorsed candidate of the Chamber (the group that gave us the failed “Plan A”). Kevin is an independent conservative who is unashamedly looking to strive for government efficiency and reduced taxes. Kevin is one of only two candidates for Council in Abbotsford to sign the Canadian Taxpayer Federation’s Contract with Taxpayers. To those who may claim that Kevin is too young I will respectfully point out that I’m sure the same was said about some of Abbotsford’s current MLAs and MP when they were elected to the School Board at ages not much more than Kevin is now. Kevin has proven himself worthy of your vote with the tremendous leadership and independent thought demonstrated in opposing the P3 water project. It is the time to elect the next generation of conservative leadership in Abbotsford. Join me in voting for Kevin Chapman.

Field. On the very first play from scrimmage, the Grade 10 running back busted loose for a 40-yard touchdown run. Cummings would finish the game with five TDs – three rushing, one punt return and one kickoff return. The defence and special teams generated three majors – an interception return by Austen Zacher, a fumble recovery in the end zone by Chris Ward, and a blocked punt

return by Taeler Lochbaum. Zacher, with a rushing touchdown, and Kole Lochbaum, with a 75-yard kickoff return, rounded out the scoring. The T-Wolves move on to face the John Barsby Bulldogs of Nanaimo in the B.C. semifinals. That game goes next Wednesday in Nanaimo. “We’re going to need to play a perfect game to beat Barsby,” Lochbaum noted. Q In junior AAA action, the

W.J. Mouat Hawks took on top-ranked and undefeated St. Thomas More at Burnaby Lakes Stadium on Thursday evening, but that result was unavailable at press time. The Hawks had earned their spot in the quarter-final by virtue of a 39-6 win over the West Vancouver Highlanders last week. Maleek Irons led the way in that game, rushing for 240 yards and two TDs, along with a 65-yard punt return major.

Abbotsford News Friday, November 18, 2011

Sports in Brief Q Mackenzie Skapski of Abbotsford earned a mention in the NHL Central Scouting rankings released Thursday. Skapski, a goalie with the with the Western Hockey League’s Kootenay Ice, is the No. 4-rated draft-eligible goalie in the WHL, according to preliminary rankings for the 2012 NHL draft. In his first full WHL season, Skapski has posted a 3-1 record with a 2.50 goals against average and a .900 save percentage as the Ice’s backup goalie. The 17-year-old finds himself in a unique situation with Kootenay, as he and starter Nathan Lieuwen form an all-Abbotsford netminding tandem. Q Jesse Neufeld of the Abbotsford Collegiate football team has been named the provincial player of the week. Neufeld, a senior receiver, hauled in seven catches for 151 yards and two touchdowns in the Panthers’ 37-31 playoff win over the Handsworth Royals last Saturday – including a game-winning 54-yard reception on the last play of the game. Neufeld also had a third TD on a 25-yard run. The Panthers take on the No. 1-ranked and undefeated John Barsby Bulldogs in the AA quarter-finals at UBC on Friday at 3 p.m. Q The wives and girlfriends of Abbotsford Heat players have raised $2,210 to date for the families affected by the plane crash involving the Kontinental Hockey League’s Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team on Sept. 7. The crash, which claimed 44 lives, has inspired hockey wives and girlfriends around the world to sell “Love for Lokomotiv” bracelets as a fundraiser. Heat-branded bracelets are available at the team store at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. To make a cash donation directly to the cause, visit www.loveforlokomotiv.com.

We battle our mortality. No one wants to hear that we are going to die. Acceptance begins the process of healing. Wikipedia says “Acceptance is a person’s agreement to experience a situation, to follow a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest, or exit.” Acceptance does not cure grief. The moment my father accepted his daughter’s death, I could see a change in him. Acceptance brings hope. It says that everything is going to be ok. It brings liberty, freedom, and acknowledgement of a horrible situation. Even though my father wanted my sister to live he needed to come to grips with her death. No one told

him in 1957 when Pat came to Canada that she was going to die in 2007. We are told that it is appointed for man to die once. Medical science has evolved and yet it has not produced a solution to death. If we do not follow the path of acceptance we will struggle through a lot of emotional baggage. Life is tough in itself. It is not easy. I work with families who have lost someone significant. They need to be cared for. People like me can help families come to a place of acceptance. As an individual I can relate to people who have suffered loss. There are no simple solutions. I have faith in eternity but that does not exempt me from pain and suffering.

Thank you for your interest. www.ontimetransport.ca
