4-H high profile at Agrifair Ashley WRAY Abbotsford News

Alpina Dusk Dawn is a resistant calf who doesn’t want to leave her pen. It takes the work of two to get her out – Reid Schurmann, 16, and Kim Groothof, 20. Reid ropes the calf, and Kim calmly leads her to a grassy patch, setting her up for presentation. It’s a practice run for Kim and the 10-month-old calf, who are competing together at this weekend’s 4H portion of Abbotsford Agrifair. In B.C., 4H is open to kids from nine to 19 years old. Through group and individual projects, the program prepares its members for their future as adult citizens of any community, not just rural or farm areas. They work with animals, ranging from llamas to chickens, and have the opportunity to learn skills in subjects such as photography, sewing and horticulture. Throughout the year they work on speeches, demonstrations and confidence building. In the spring and summer they show their projects. Both Kim and Reid belong to 4H Dairy Sumas, which has 17 members from Aldergrove, Abbotsford and Chilliwack. In preparation for this weekend’s event, Kim has been working with her calf every day in half-hour increments at her family’s farm in Sumas. It will be Kim’s final Agrifair competition as it’s her 11th year in the 4H

Better options for waste: MLA Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen doesn’t believe incineration is the answer to the Lower Mainland’s garbage problem. Despite the decision by Minister of Environment Terry Lake to endorse Metro Vancouver’s regional waste plan – which includes incineration – van Dongen maintains his stand. “I’m not convinced there aren’t other options that are better for the environment and the economy,” he said. Van Dongen said it is important to ask questions and seek accountability from Metro on environmental and economic issues surrounding its plan. “I always had the distinct impression that Metro Vancouver had a predisposition or bias towards waste-to-energy, right from the

start,” he said. He’s not convinced by Metro’s statistics and wants “a proper, blankpage analysis” on all the possible options. Metro’s plan includes a waste-toenergy plant, built either in the Lower Mainland or possibly on Vancouver Island. It also calls for an aggressive push for more recycling and composting. Waste-to-energy is the process of burning garbage and harnessing the energy created to offset the use of fossil fuels. Proponents say it is cost-effective and helps the environment. Those opposed to the option are concerned the process will introduce more pollution and toxins into the Fraser Valley air shed. The concern over the valley’s air is not new to van Dongen, who fought the threat of SE2. Sumas Energy 2 was a proposed natural gas power plant to be constructed

near the Canadian border, in Sumas Wash. It was defeated in 2005 after a huge public outcry over the emissions it would release. The environment is just one of the issues concerning van Dongen. He said the financial implication is huge, especially the half billion dollars needed in capital. “Then you are fully invested and dependent of the waste stream to keep on running.” But van Dongen said incineration is still a long way away. “There is lots of time” he said, noting the minister set out some significant conditions. “I think there are a lot of hurdles to be met before it becomes a reality ... My hope is that it doesn’t become a reality in the Lower Mainland.” Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes and Abbotsford West MLA Mike de Jong and AbbotsfordMission MLA Randy Hawes were unavailable for comment.

Dump truck hits woman Flag person was pinned under rear tire

NewsBytes MAN IN MOTION WILL RETURN In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion tour, a national relay will be taking place. The event begins March 19, 2012 in St John’s, NL and will travel 12,000 kilometres, stopping in 165 communities. On May 14-15 the tour will be stopping in Abbotsford. A planning committee is being established to organize a community celebration to highlight the event.

Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald was prepared for the worst when he called a hospital to get an update on the condition of a 46-year-old woman who was run over by a dump truck on Wednesday at approximately 3:30 p.m. She was airlifted to hospital in critical condition, but MacDonald learned she had improved considerably by Thursday morning. “To my surprise – and I’m really happy to report – she’s in stable condition,” said the APD spokesman. The police investigation has revealed that the truck, which had just dropped a load at a construction site on Marshall Road just south of the Clearbrook interchange, backed into the traffic control flag person. It knocked her over, and the rear tire actually rolled onto her body. Other drivers and people at the construction site on Marshall Road honked and waved to get the driver’s attention. He stopped, and got out of his vehicle to see what had happened. His truck tire still had the woman pinned to the ground. “Essentially, the dump truck was parked on her,” said MacDonald. The driver got back in his vehicle and

The woman has suffered multiple lower body fractures, and was to undergo surgery on Thursday to address those injuries and assess internal damage and bleeding. MacDonald said the preliminary finding is that the woman was concentrating on the traffic in front of her, and was not aware of the truck backing toward her. The truck driver could not see her. The APD traffic reconstruction team is

working on the file, Worksafe B.C. has its own investigation, and the Commercial Vehicle Inspection branch is also involved. MacDonald said it is still too early to determine whether any charges will be laid against the driver. He said the APD victim’s assistance team will be working with about 12 people who witnessed the accident, including the dump truck driver.

Every year, on average, for the past five years, there are 1,950 crashes, 540 injuries and three fatalities across the province during the B.C. Day long weekend. The public may think impaired driving is the cause, but often it’s fatigue. Fatigue has been a contributing factor in 1,010 crashes, 690 injuries and 20 fatalities every year on B.C. roads. With the weather getting warmer and the holiday Monday almost here, ICBC is warning drivers to stay sharp. Driver fatigue slows reaction time, decreases awareness and impairs judgment.

CONTRACT AWARDED Abbotsford has awarded a contract worth just over $1.2 million to Jakes Construction Ltd. of Chilliwack. The contract is for the installation of water mains for the Clearbrook and Peardonville CICP (City in the Country Plan) lands. In total, 1,330 metres of 400mm diameter water mains will be installed. Jakes Construction won the contract as it was the lowest of seven bids.

‘Normal’ summer weather in Abbotsford

But mercury hasn’t hit 30C yet

on Thursday. “Everyone’s experience, however, is that summer hasn’t arrived yet.� Jones pointed out the 30-year average mean temperature for July in Abbotsford is 17.5 Celsius. This July, to date, the mean is 17.3 C – well within the standard deviation. The average daytime high, at 22.2 C, is also only fractionally cooler than the 30-year average of 23.4 C. In terms of precipitation, Abbotsford has had 64 millimetres of rain in July – more than the average of 50 mm, but not even within shouting distance of the record of 149 mm, set in 1983. The difference between the statistics and personal experience, according to Jones, lies with the fact Abbotsford has

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Abbotsford residents have been bemoaning the slow arrival of summer, but according to Environment Canada statistics, the weather hasn’t been all that bad. “There’s perception that it’s been colder and wetter than normal, but it actually has been, in fact, quite normal in terms of the statistics,� Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones said

yet to see a significant stretch of sunny, hot weather. “We haven’t hit 30 degrees at the Abbotsford Airport yet,� Jones pointed out. “Historically, you can reach 30 degrees as early as May 1.� 1954 and 1964 were the last years where the Abbotsford Airport didn’t record at least one day where the temperature was at or above 30 C. “We’ve got all of August and September to hit 30, and I’m sure we’ll get there,� Jones said. “But right now, we haven’t, and I think that’s the main thing. There hasn’t been a stretch of sunny, hot weather of any duration.� The lack of hot weather has had a delaying effect on agriculture, and food

banks and soup kitchens in the region have been affected to varying degrees as fresh produce donations from farmers are coming in slower than usual. Abbotsford Food Bank coordinator Dave Murray said his organization is beginning to notice the impact, though it hasn’t been drastic to this point. “We aren’t receiving any corn yet, or some other particular items,� Murray noted. “But we’ll see at the end of August what things look like as we head towards Thanksgiving. “The farmers tend to be generous in terms of finances as well, and if it’s a slow year, there will be a spin-off towards Christmas. It does have a longterm impact on us.�

Moriarty. Animal hoarding, defined as a pathological accumulation of animals, was first defined in public health literature in 1999. It is a compulsive, addictive behaviour that is still being studied and debated by psychologists. Abbotsford Police attended to keep the peace, and Const. Ian MacDonald said they arranged for victim’s assistance for the woman, who was not allowed to stay in her home. MacDonald said the situation highlights the need for people to look out for one another, and not let neighbours become isolated. “We want to encourage people to stay connected with each other. If they think there’s something going on with their neighbour, they should call police.� He referred to last week’s case when neighbours eventually made police aware of a 75-year-old man who had not been seen. He was found, immobilized, in a house that was filled with debris, and called dangerously unclean. MacDonald said he appreciates neighbours in such situations “don’t want to get that person in trouble,� but said they should recognize when agencies with legal authority need to be involved. “They (neighbours) could be saving lives – or in this case, the lives of animals.�

10% HST cheaper than PST, study finds Tom FLETCHER Black Press

A 10 per cent harmonized sales tax will cost an average B.C. family $255 a year less than returning to the former provincial sales tax, according to a new study. David Murrell, professor of public finance at the University of New Brunswick, released the first version of his study last year, examining the switch to the HST in B.C. and Ontario. He calculated a 12 per cent HST would cost an average B.C. family an extra $490 in new sales taxes paid. Factoring in low-income tax credits and grants, the B.C. HST would mean an net $320 tax increase. After the B.C. government announced it would reduce the HST rate to 11 per cent next year and 10 per cent in 2014, Murrell updated his calculations and released the results this week. “If I were a B.C. voter, based on this

evidence, I would vote ‘no’ in the HST referendum,” Murrell said. Murrell did a similar study in 1997 when Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland expanded their provincial sales tax to include services, and cut the rate to eight per cent. He also found a net saving to taxpayers in those provinces. B.C. consumer savings come from three sources, Murrell said. Goods that were subject to PST will now have it reduced to five per cent. The government has offered personal income tax credits to help compensate for the new HST. And businesses pass on savings from writing off taxes on material inputs and capital spending, lowering the price of products and services. Jock Finlayson, vice-president of the Business Council of B.C., said Murrell’s study is the first independent academic

analysis he has seen since the HST rate cut option was announced in May. Finlayson said he has heard many times that people don’t believe prices will be reduced as a result of HST tax breaks. But independent researchers have looked at

the switch from retail sales taxes to valueadded taxes around the world, and “without exception” they find that lower prices result, he said. With the Aug. 5 deadline for voting in B.C.’s HST referendum approaching, Fight HST organizers

Bill Vander Zalm and Bill Tieleman visited Elections BC facilities where they will observe as ballots are counted. They told reporters they have heard from hundreds of people concerned they won’t receive a voting package in time to

participate, and called for the government to intervene and establish a mechanism to allow late voting. “If [voters] called Elections BC and they were sent a package, it should get to them and they should be allowed to vote,” Tieleman said.

Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, reached at a cabinet retreat in the Okanagan, said it is “ridiculous” to suggest that the government try to interfere with an independent office that has successfully supervised many elections and referendum votes.

Hyperhidrosis Question: I have excessive sweating which is interfering with my daily activities. I am afraid to raise my arms in normal situations and I hesitate to buy new clothes because they might be ruined! Is BOTOX® the answer for me? Answer: When excessive underarm sweat gets in the way of your daily activities and antiperspirant no longer works for you, you may be a good candidate for BOTOX® treatment. Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is the body’s temperature regulator. In severe cases of hyperhidrosis sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements for cooling. BOTOX® is used to treat this medical condition. The simple procedure consists of injecting a small amount of BOTOX® using a very fine needle. A significant reduction in sweating in the treated areas are noticed within a week and will last an average of 7-8 months. Most 3rd parties will cover the cost of the BOTOX®. Dr. Marianna Snyman

WebTalk HST cheaper

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Do you support Victoria’s endorsement of Metro’s waste incineration plan?

This is still a $2 billion tax shift onto consumers, which means less disposable income for making purchases. It’s an interesting article, but I still don’t buy it. Call me old fashioned but I’ve always believed that trust is earned, not freely given out. Bottom line for me is that the Fiberal government has lost my trust. There is still plenty of evidence out there telling me not to support the HST.

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Mr. Smith

Has the unseasonably cool weather changed your summer plans?

Consumption taxes hurt the lowest earners the most. Gordon Campbell has already paid the price for lying about the HST, the province doesn’t need to as well. Rodney Gibson

145 RESPONDED:

Paid the price? If you mean his cushy London digs with servants, then ya.

YES: 46% NO: 54%

Life’s journey rife with urban legends Chris

Bryan Guest Shot As a boy, I never ate the last third of a banana. Those little black dots you see down there at the bottom? Tarantula eggs. Consumed, they’ll hatch in your stomach and lead to a whole bunch of fun. My sister told me this. Because she was older, her word, of course, was gospel. It was only much later that I learned the truth, that those black spots are actually microvitamins designed by NASA engineers to give you superpowers. But it’s surprising how durable urban legends, old wives’ tales, and even big sister’s headgames can be, in the face of pretty strong evidence to the contrary. Sure, we grownups no longer fear stepping on a crack in the sidewalk

for fear of putting our dear mothers in traction. Yet many of us still feel a pang of hesitation about opening an umbrella inside, or walking beneath a ladder. And when a black cat crosses our path many of us are prone to say to ourselves, oh boy, bad day ahead. Broke a mirror? We’re talking seven years, pal. But seriously. When I was a kid, the real plague was chewing gum. At the age of 10, I often stuffed massive wads of Big League Chew (designed to resemble chewing tabacky, but bright pink) in my mouth and, when it lost its sweetness, swallowed the whole gob of it. For some reason, I didn’t worry about the fact it would take seven years to digest. At any given time I must have had 10, 15 pounds of the stuff working its way through my innards. It’s no wonder my non-existent jump shot prevented me from getting on the basketball team in Grade 8. It’s lucky, though, that I never ate a whole bag of pop rocks followed by a can of Coke. As we all know, that’s

how little Mikey (“He likes it!”) of the Life cereal commercials died. OK, maybe that’s not true, but General Foods apparently distributed thousands of flyers, and wrote letters to school principals in a futile attempt to dispel the myth.

It’s lucky, though, that I never ate a whole bag of pop rocks followed by a can of Coke. Mikey was a cute kid. Today he’s apparently an ad exec in New York. I’m not so cute. If you ever meet me in person don’t be shocked by my appearance. See, when I was eight, I made a really silly face. And yep, you guessed it – it stayed that way. Watched too much TV a couple years later and I

went cross-eyed. What a mess. So maybe, some of these urban legends and the like are true. There are several others, though, that many folks still believe and that I’ve recently learned are patently false. For one, men do not think about sex every seven seconds. It’s actually nine. Searing meat does not “lock in” the juices. But it does make a yummy crust on your steak. And earwigs, thankfully, will not crawl inside your ear while you’re sleeping and eat your brain. But do be careful if you have a dog. A friend of mine said that if you pat your dog’s head in a certain place, it will cause brain damage and ultimately, death. That’s why I always scratch my Lab retriever under the neck. Just to be safe. Bananas, thankfully, are OK to eat. Peel and all. Apples aren’t. Unless you like razor blades.

EXCLUSIVE READER CONTEST

Send HST ballots in now

It is critically important that all British Columbians are fully informed about the new deadline to submit their HST referendum ballots. We wrote to B.C.’s Chief Electoral Officer to ask for a two-week extension to the July 22 deadline because of the mail delays caused by the Canada Post lockout, and Elections B.C. agreed that an extension was necessary. The new deadline to return HST ballots is Friday, Aug. 5 at 4:30 p.m. However, this deadline is for ballots to arrive at Elections B.C., not to simply be postmarked by then, as one might expect. For this reason, we would encourage anyone who has not yet exercised their right to participate in this important decision for the future of B.C. to do so right away. We would also encourage people in rural communities to make use of the Service B.C. drop-

off centres if possible. There are 60 locations throughout the province (www.servicebc.gov. bc.ca/locations) and dropping your ballot off reduces the risk it will not be delivered in time or get lost in the mail. It can take up to seven business days for mail to reach its destination within B.C. Together with our New Democrat colleagues, we have traveled around the province and met with countless people who think the HST is an unfair tax that was poorly implemented, and must be scrapped by voting ‘Yes.’ When we hear of the Liberals doling out hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to their friends and insiders to help them sell the tax in a $7 million effort to save their political hides, we know British Columbians deserve better. Adrian Dix, leader, Bruce Ralston, finance critic New Democrat Official Opposition

Why ask for public input?

I’m not really sure why Mayor George Peary is asking for public input on “fast tracking” the removal of agricultural land from the ALR to re-zone it industrial, council doesn’t listen anyway. Do you remember the public opposition against allowing Lafarge to mine gravel on agricultural land? There were

some councillors who voted against it, but it still passed. Then there was the public “inputted” petition against building Mahogany Towers! It passed too. When other parts of this continent and the world are losing crops and farmland due to flooding or drought, we should be conserving farm-

land, but it seems that under the stewardship of Christy Clark’s Liberals there is a push for municipalities to pave our valley paradise and put up a parking lot. So, no Mayor Peary, I won’t give you my input, because you’re just going to do what you want anyway. Gary Huntbatch

400km ride for cancer

Laura THOMAS Contributor

Three years ago when Const. Ryan Reed of the Abbotsford Police Department first heard about Ride2Survive – a gruelling one-day cycle from Kelowna to Delta – he thought he might take up the challenge “someday.” “Someday” turned into “today” when the bike squad member lost a co-worker, Const. Martin Ellis-White, to cancer. Reed was involved in planning the memorial service and it was a message from Ellis-White that was read at the service, “to live for today instead of someday,” which prompted Reed to join the cycling fundraiser. Training for the 400 km route that includes a 12,000 foot climb and 19 hours of pedaling was a family affair, said Reed. Participants had to put in upwards of 300 km a week and tackled all-day rides that were over eight hours long. To fit in the training around his work schedule, Reed shelved every other extracurricular activity, and spent a lot of time away from his family. “My wife had to pull extra duty,” said Reed, who has two children, ages five and seven. Reed’s efforts did pay off. He completed the ride but not without experiencing a low moment along the way. When asked what his lowest moment was, Reed described an undulating stretch of road between Merritt and the bottom of Larson Hill. He had started that leg near the back of the pack, and found it extremely difficult to keep the pace. He could see the leading riders crest a hill that he was just starting to climb. Because he was playing a continuous game of catch-up, Reed found he had less time to eat and drink which led to dehydration issues. What kept him going was the memory of Const. Ellis-White, the loss of his step-father to cancer just days before the ride, and the realization that the purpose of this ultraendurance fundraiser was to simulate what it’s like to live with cancer. Reed’s high-point

was at Planet Ice in Maple Ridge – the last pit stop before the finish in North Delta – where his wife and children came out to meet him. Just before the riders were set to roll out, Reed’s son came running through the crowd of bikes and gave him a big hug. But the ride was moving out, so Reed had to say a quick goodbye and start pedaling again. Just as Reed round-

ed the corner onto the street, he saw his two children holding up signs to cheer him on saying: “Go Daddy Go!” and “You are all amazing!” When asked if he was going to do it again next year, Reed said that he has already signed up, and is thinking about how he can improve his training. To date he has raised over $5,000 and hopes to do even more fund-

raising next year. “It’s not a ride with a cause attached to it, it’s a cause with a ride attached to it,” he said. The 2012 Ride2Survive kicks off in February with a twohour indoor ride and orientation session at Southridge School in South Surrey. Registration is open now.

River bus idea

A few years ago Jeff Malmgren was doing some consulting work on the River District area of Vancouver just west of Boundary Road where it’s expected about 15,000 people will eventually live. He began to wonder “how are these people going to get around?” He also noticed while doing some work for the City of New Westminster on the civic centre in the midst of a burgeoning downtown how people were beginning to reconnect with the river. So why not, he thought, go back in time and use the river to get around? The result is the Fraser RiverBus Society, and he presented his concept to

the Metro Vancouver regional planning committee last Friday. Malmgren is proposing four vessels with a projected capacity of 10,000 to 15,000 passengers per day could run up and down the river between Langley and Richmond, providing an efficient transit alternative. Malmgren estimates there are 55,000 who commute between the riverfront communities. He said the vessel that seems most appropriate for a RiverBus is a hydrofoil catamaran such as those used in New York on the East River as well as Chicago and Washington, D.C. His group estimates capital costs, including vessels, land in-

frastructure and start up, would be between $15.65 million and $20.4 million. Metro Vancouver directors asked the regional district’s staff to investigate the proposal.

Struggle for the vote This article is part of community-wide centennial celebrations honouring the building of the National Historic Site Gur Sikh Temple (est. 1911). The right to vote was the central issue for Indian immigrants to Canada during the 1930s and 1940s, as the legal equality of South Asians in B.C. depended on it. By the 1930s a substantial number of families had settled in B.C. and recognized that being able to participate in the democratic process was crucial to their future here. Political parties like the Provincial CCF, the Japanese based Camp, Mill Workers Union and the International Woodworkers of America all supported the Asians’ right to vote. They were also able to get the Canadian Trades and Labour Council to support this

issue. However, all initiatives and pleas made to the government were futile. The outbreak of World War II also did nothing to moderate the government’s position on the issue. The Pearl Harbour incident increased the animosity against Japanese, and the public was unwilling to separate the Japanese from other South Asians. Efforts made by H.S.L. Polak, a long-term associate of Gandhi, to talk to Prime Minister Mackenzie King also produced no results. The Asian communities banded together and their efforts to bring in a change increased steadily. In March 1943, a 12-man delegation was sent to visit Premier Hart to discuss the right to vote. The delegation included some important community members along with Continued on A15

Vote granted in 1947

From A14

representatives from various other organizations like the IWA and the CCF. By now, many South Asians were members of the IWA and some had also been enlisted in the Canadian Army. This showed that they were committed to their work place and their country. The premier, however, still refused to take the matters into further consideration until the war was over. Though this was a great jolt to the community, it did not inhibit their resolve to keep trying. They opposed the government’s decision on the basis that while they were not given the right to vote, to have them enlisted in the Canadian army, risking their lives for a country unwilling to call them their own, was ethically wrong. Therefore, the “no vote-no war” policy came into light. The community members even went on to collect information about the living conditions of South Asians, their occupations and their efforts in the war in order to publicize their contributions to the province. Continuous efforts by CCF and now also the provincial command of the Canadian Legion finally forced the government in 1947 to grant the right to vote to all the Chinese, Japanese, South Asians and native Canadians who served in the army. This was a big achievement

because it indicated a change in the racial attitude that had been ongoing. There were many reasons for the government to extend the voting rights. Firstly, India had gained independence in 1947 and as a consequence many changes were to occur in its socio-economic and political structure. Secondly, as India and China both became independent economically, Canada had hopes of developing large-scale trade relations. Thirdly, Canada’s denial of the Asian vote contradicted the United Nations Charter that Canada had participated in establishing. The Elections Act was hence modified and the amended bill came to the floor of the Legislature on April 2, 1947. It was passed unanimously and the provincial vote was won at last. Once this was achieved, the federal voting rights came in automatically. It was the biggest achievement of this decade. The discrimination against South Asians also decreased. Even though economic integration and legal equality improved, there were still barriers to full social and psychological integration. South Asians did their very best to assimilate into the Canadian society. They dressed like Canadians, learned English and chose to have a living style quite similar to their Canadian counterparts.

Royals excel at B.C.’s

Athletes from Abbotsford’s Valley Royals track and field club made a massive medal haul at the B.C. Track and Field Championship Jamboree last weekend at Coquitlam’s Town Centre Stadium. All told, Royals athletes racked up 25 medals – eight of which were gold. Ruky Abdulai, who leaves in a month’s time for the World Track and Field Championships in Korea, decided to take part in individual events at this meet rather than contest the heptathlon, an event she won at nationals. Abdulai won both the senior women’s 100-metre hurdles (14.42 seconds) and 200m (24.20). Chantel Desch was a silver medallist in the youth women’s 400m, which she completed in a personalbest 56.98 in a thrilling race. In a

photo finish, Desch finished second to Vancouver’s Cheyanne Tunti by one thousandth of a second. Alex Siemens ran smartly in the youth women’s 1500m to win the event in 4:40.32. Siemens ran with the leaders through the first 1,000 metres, then bolted into a 35-metre lead which proved too large to overcome for B.C. high school champ Kayla Stone. Both Desch and Siemens have been picked for the B.C. team which will attend the Canadian Legion Championships, Aug. 3-9 in Ottawa. Other Royals gold medallists included Brianna Kane (senior women’s 800m), Aisha Klippenstein (junior women’s triple jump), Jeewan Grewal (midget boys hammer), Spencer Prince (junior men’s shot put), and Spencer Spenst (14-yearold men’s high jump).

Bandits rally past Rebels Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

The Valley Rebels were pushed the brink of elimination on Wednesday, dropping a controversial 7-5 decision to the TriCity Bandits at MSA Arena. The Bandits claimed a 2-1 lead in the best-offive West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association (WCSLA) semifinal series, and they could finish off the Rebels next Tuesday at Port Moody Arena. In the aftermath, Rebels head coach Jim Nishiyama was none too pleased with the refereeing. According to the Valley bench boss, one of the officials assigned to Wednesday’s game plays for one of the Bandits’ feeder teams in Port Moody. “There was a meeting at the beginning of the year saying that any Tri-City games, he’s not allowed to

them.” The Rebels have lodged an official complaint with the WCSLA, though there’s likely no recourse for a game that’s already been played. The Abbotsford squad led 5-3 through

40 minutes, but their of ficiating-related angst bubbled over in the third period. The Bandits were the recipients of an extended two-man advantage in the early portion of the final frame, and scored twice on the

2011 Abbotsford Police - John Goyer Memorial Charity Golf Tournament

power play to tie it up. That turn of events seemed to deflate the Rebels. The Bandits got the go-ahead goal, and scored into an empty net in the final minute to seal the win. Geordie Wells continued his red-hot offensive play for the Abby squad, notching a hat trick in the loss. In Monday’s Game 2, Wells had scored the game-winner in doubleovertime as the Rebels edged the Bandits 9-8 to even the series. Wednesday’s game marked the Rebels’ final appearance in Abbotsford this season. They’re being displaced because the ice is being re-installed at MSA Arena in preparation for hockey season. The balance of their “home” games – including Game 5 of the WCSLA semifinal next Thursday, if necessary – would be played at North Surrey Rec Centre.

Abbotsford News

Brent Hayden earned his second career World Championship medal on Thursday.

Silver lining

Mission’s Hayden second in 100-metre free Mission’s Brent Hayden has wowed the swimming world again, earning a silver medal Thursday morning at the FINA World Aquatic Championships. The 2007 world champion put up a time of 47.95 seconds in the 100metre freestyle, narrowly losing to Australia’s James Magnussen, who clocked in at 47.63 seconds. “It’s awesome,” said Hayden, reflecting on winning his second career world championship medal. “I was hungry to get the medal. The work I had done on the start really paid off with my reaction time off the blocks being one of the best.” Hayden didn’t go into the worlds full of confidence after struggling

at a couple of tune-up meets. But with several family members in the stands, including his parents and fiancé, Hayden rose to the occasion. “We put the emphasis on more training this season and reduced the number of competitions,” said Hayden’s coach Tom Johnson. “So that meant the results this season were not at the level he was used to. But we stayed the course and kept moving forward. It really bodes well for the future.” Hayden’s medal was Canada’s second of the swimming competition. On Wednesday, Ryan Cochrane of Victoria won silver in the 800m freestyle.
