Information in ICBC documents inviting break-ins

WASTE CASE DELAYED Ed Ilnicki asks for more time, as expected guilty plea postponed A5

Insurance papers and a garage door opener are all a thief needs A rash of break-ins, as thieves target church-goers in Abbotsford, brings attention to a type of crime that has long been recognized as a problem in B.C. The simple solution, Ken Pugh says, is for ICBC to switch to a new system, where drivers do not leave their addresses on insurance documents in their vehicles.

Ken Pugh has been lobbying to have ICBC remove the requirement that customers keep insurance papers containing their home address inside their vehicles, suggesting a wallet-sized card to deter crime.

‘Not criminally responsible’ Believed wife was the devil when he killed her

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The family of a murdered Abbotsford woman wept openly in court Thursday as the man who killed her read an apology letter. Both Crown and defence lawyers are asking that the man, who is the husband of the deceased woman, be found not criminally responsible for her death due to mental illness. The couple cannot be named due to a publication ban. The man pleaded for the woman’s family, who wore badges with her picture, to forgive him, saying he wished he could turn back time. He sobbed as he hung his head to read the crumpled piece of paper in his hand. He described the woman as his “soulmate.” “All of you who have known us knew how much we loved each other ... All of the tears I have shed are endless.” The man, who also had family members in the courtroom, was previously

Crown prosecutor Wayne Norris and defence lawyer Deanne Gaffar were in agreement with expert reports that although the

man killed his wife, he suffered from several mental illness – including psychosis and delusions – before, during and after the incident. He should not be held criminally responsible for his actions, they said during closing submissions Thursday. This made a trial unnecessary.

The court heard that the man had been delusional and paranoid before the day in question. Gaffar said he made two reports to police in October 2009 that he was being stalked and harassed by someone associated with the Hells Angels. Police were unable to find any such connection, she said. Gaffar said he also became consumed by fear for his and his family’s safety. She said admissions from family, friends, a priest and mental health professionals corroborated that he was not mentally stable in the days leading up to the incident and in the months afterward. On the morning of Nov. 11, 2009, he believed either that his wife was the antiChrist or that she had the devil growing inside her stomach. He shot her three times with a rifle, which killed her, Gaffar said. He then removed two Continued on A7

Address the issue

Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

A recent rash of break-ins at the homes of Abbotsford church-goers is just the latest incarnation of an old crime. Thieves know the majority of drivers keep their insurance papers – listing their name and home address – in their vehicle, usually in the glove box or overhead visor. Crooks just need to find a vehicle in which the owner has left a garage door opener. That gives them a “key” to the house. If the car is at a movie theatre, the head of a hiking trail, or as in recent cases, a church parking lot, the thieves know they have plenty of time to loot the home. “ICBC has known for years this is a problem, and they have been reluctant to take steps to solve it,” says Ken Pugh, a university professor from Chilliwack. “It is 100 per cent preventable,” he maintains. Pugh spent some time in Saskatchewan, where there is no requirement to keep insurance papers in your vehicle, as there is in B.C. Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) issues a smaller document that can be folded, fitting into a wallet. The rule there is that proof of insurance, if it is not available immediately, must be produced within 48 hours of a police request during a roadside stop. Pugh said a wallet-sized card system in B.C. is a no-brainer. The work of the socalled “Garage Burglar” in Chilliwack got him interested in trying to effect change,

Ken Pugh displays his insurance documents, from which he has eliminated his last name and home address to prevent the information being used by thieves. and he’s been trying to get the attention of ICBC officials and politicians. “If ICBC would only do one thing – take out your personal, private information – this type of crime would be reduced dramatically, and not just in Chilliwack or Abbotsford, but across the province,” said Pugh. Chantel Funk’s parents were among those victimized while they were at church on Jan. 2. Thieves smashed their

car window and stole a Bluetooth wireless device, a TomTom GPS, a garage door opener and their insurance papers. They then went to the couple’s home, and stole electronics and jewelry. Funk said Abbotsford Police told them they could block out the address on their insurance papers, and although they could be ticketed for altering the documents, Continued on A7

Documents show Ilnicki twice went to the Environmental Appeal Board Abbotsford News

A man charged with 52 hazardous waste infractions was expected to plead guilty to three of them yesterday in Abbotsford provincial court, but the matter was adjourned until Feb. 17. The judge was told that Ed Ilnicki, who did not appear in court, needs more time to consult with his lawyer about some additional information he has provided. Meanwhile, online documents reveal that Ilnicki testified at a 2006 Environmental Appeal Board (EAB) hearing that he took materials from a site on Industrial Avenue that was declared an envi-

TEEN VICTIM REMEMBERED A 19-year-old woman killed in a car crash Sunday on Page Road has been identified as Kasha Sarah Dezainde of Abbotsford. Dezainde is described on an online memorial website as a “typical teenager” who loved music, sushi and hanging out with her friends. She was described as vibrant and with a “bubbly personality.” She died after the 1992 Nissan NX, in which she was a passenger, went off the road in the 33500 block of Page Road at about 4:30 p.m. The 18-year-old driver was airlifted to hospital and remains in serious condition.

ronmental emergency and moved them to a new location on Wheel Avenue. However, he said the materials he moved were not hazardous waste and they were necessary for his new business. He also admitted that he later moved materials from Wheel Avenue to two other locations – in his own vehicles without authorization from the ministry of environment. Ilnicki is the former owner of Canada Petroleum Corporation (CPC) on Industrial Avenue. That site was declared an environmental emergency in 2005 due to materials left behind when Ilnicki moved

the previous year. Ilnicki was charged with 11 hazardous waste offences in 2001 and pleaded guilty to two of them in June 2005, resulting in a $10,000 fine. The EAB documents state that it cost the Ministry of Environment $869,550 to remove material from the CPC site in 2005, including chromic acid, formaldehyde, paint-related material, pesticides, and waste oil, oily sludge and oily solids. Ilnicki, 63, was again charged in 2008 with 52 counts – 17 of failing to retain a qualified expert, 33 of destroying or disposing of hazardous waste at a facility, and two of hazContinued on A7

Buffy-Ann Troy was returning with her family from a funeral in Kamloops when their car slid off the road in freezing rain on Highway 1 near Yale. Moir, who works with Fraser Valley Traffic Services and had stopped to talk to the family, pushed her out of the way when a sand truck went out of control and careened towards them.

Take personal information off documents From A5

there’s a good chance a police officer would be understanding. She likes Pugh’s card idea better, which could all but eliminate this type of crime. On Jan. 23, three more people attending church had their cars broken into and

tires slashed, and in one case a home was robbed. Pugh said a class action lawsuit against ICBC involving victims of this type of crime would be warranted. “They have provided an opportunity for criminals,” he said. ICBC spokesman

‘A tragic and devastating case’ From A4

children from the home, ages 10 and 15, before setting the house on fire. He fled to a church in Langley, where he spoke with a priest and then turned himself in to police. Two mental health professionals hired by the defence and a third one hired by the Crown were all in agreement that the man suffered from severe mental illness. This included “psycho-defective disorder with depressive sub type.” Gaffar said the man’s perception of reality was impaired and he was incapable of “appreciating the nature and quality of the act ... or of knowing that it was wrong.” “This is a tragic and devastating case where a loving husband has become mentally ill and killed the person he loved immeasurably,” she said. Justice Brian Joyce is scheduled to present his decision on Friday, Feb. 11. If the man is found not criminally responsible, he will have a hearing before a review board to determine whether he receives an absolute discharge, a discharge with conditions or detention in a psychiatric hospital.

Mark Jan Vrem said the requirement to have the original vehicle registration and insurance document in the vehicle when operating on a highway is contained in the Motor Vehicle Act. To alter this requirement, there would need to be a change to the legislation.

He added that most North American law enforcement authorities require that original, unaltered documents be available if requested by a peace officer – primarily to help prevent fraud and misrepresentation. He added that people can follow the

letter of the law by having a photocopy of their insurance in the glove compartment, with their personal information blanked out, while hiding the original in another part of the vehicle. He said motorists can carry the original documents in the vehicle, but should

not leave them in it when the vehicle is parked or stored. Pugh responds that thieves will still smash windows looking for addresses on insurance papers, even if they find them blacked out. Jan Vrem said he was not aware of what Saskatchewan’s SGI

issues its customers. “ICBC is always looking at ways to improve service for our customers. “Suggestions to remove the name and address information is something we can review and consider as we look forward to enhancements in our systems,” he said.

ardous waste confinement. It is not known to what three charges he intends to plead guilty. The 52 charges relate to alleged offences occurring from December 2005 to August 2007. Three separate properties are involved – 31234 Wheel Ave. and 1717 Foy St. in Abbotsford, and 2790 Gloucester Way in Aldergrove. Documents filed with the EAB show that Ilnicki was ordered to provide information to the Ministry of Environment in April 2006 about the Wheel Avenue property. At that time, Ilnicki was operating Valley Demolition Design and Repair. The business

was described as one to “demolish, repair, design and rebuild buildings, machinery and equipment.” The EAB documents state an officer with the ministry found 294 45-gallon drums of materials during an inspection and many of them were flammable, corrosive or unlabelled. Ilnicki was asked to provide detailed information on what was contained in the drums. He refused, saying the materials were not hazardous, were necessary for his business, and were “no different in scope than any other general contractor warehouse.” The ministry issued an information order, which required Ilnicki to retain a “third

party consultant” to conduct an inventory of the materials, to evaluate whether they were stored in a safe manner and to provide that information to the ministry. Ilnicki filed an appeal with the EAB. Meanwhile, in August 2006, the ministry issued a pollution prevention order, further requiring Ilnicki to provide information about the materials he was storing. He also appealed that matter. His first appeal was dismissed in November 2006. By

that time, Ilnicki had moved to a new property on Foy Street. The owner of the Wheel Avenue property provided a list of materials he said were removed when Ilnicki left. They included oily rags, waste printing ink, waste flammable liquids (xylene), waste oil and oil filters, and paint-related material. The second appeal was heard in June 2007. By then, Ilnicki had moved to Gloucester Way. He was working as an electrician, a heavy duty mechanic and ran a meat tray washing business and

a home restoration business, according to EAB documents. He said he required various chemicals for his work and the ministry lacked expertise in knowing how the materials are used. He provided a list of the materials, which included resin, acetone, paint, insulation and driveway sealer. But the EAB said this did not meet the requirement of the order that he hire a consultant to provide the inventory. Ilnicki’s second appeal was also dismissed.

WebTalk Distracted drivers

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Do you still use handheld devices while driving?

You can’t legislate common sense. Our government, along with police, are determined to turn all of us into criminals. Smoking, drinking, speeding, texting, the list is endless. They don’t want to throw us in jail, they just want the money from our wallets. Mr. Smith

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

If people are too stupid and selfish to do the right thing on their own, then measures have to be taken to make them. If the threat of a fine stops any one of them from doing it, that’s fine with me. If people only killed themselves with their stupidity, well then, that’s their problem. But they have no right to put everyone else at risk as well. ollyollyoxenfree

Should development on native land be subject to the same tax laws as non-native property?

YOU RESPONDED:

The problem is that most employers require that you be available at all times, whether or not you are driving. It also doesn’t help that iPods were meant exactly for this sort of thing. jayne190

Needless carnage on the roads Paula

Carlson

My View Is it just me, or have B.C. drivers – particularly in Metro Vancouver – become even more insanely aggressive in recent years? As a veteran commuter, I’ve certainly seen it all. There are the multi-taskers: • The dog/baby/spouse on the driver’s lap. • Cellphone in crook of neck, left hand on steering wheel, right hand on shifter... and a bowl of soup on the dashboard. • Eyeliner and mascara application at red light. • Open book splayed across speedometer. The hoarders treat their vehicle like a home away from home: • A clutch of Kleenex boxes block the view out the rear window while an assortment of stuffed animals create

blind spots along the front. • A mini landfill of fast food wrappers, coffee cups and other trash form ecologically questionable mounds in the slope between the dashboard and windshield. • Wait, is that a live cat in there too? But by far the worst are the aggressive drivers – the bob-and-weave lanechangers, the tail-gaters, the cut-off artists, the chance-taking passers and the Neanderthals who flash their high beams in brazen self-righteousness. Where the frick is the fire? There’s a great line in the movie The Shawshank Redemption, when longtime convict Brooks Hatlen is released from jail after more than 40 years behind bars. As he ambles down a city street, Hatlen is overwhelmed by the change of pace that has occurred over the decades; horns blast as he is nearly run over by racing traffic. “The world went and got itself in a big damn hurry,” Hatlen observes. I’ll say. Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night prompts today’s motorists to ease off on the gas pedal, not to mention tough new provincial legislation that

can see them lose their wheels for a week and get slammed with hefty fines if they’re cruising 40 km/h above the posted speed limit. At best, all these street sins would be baffling – or at worst frustratingly annoying – if not for the tragic conse-

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night prompts today’s motorists to ease off on the gas pedal. quences of such selfish behaviour. A prime example: Brenda Michie lost her “soulmate” Jim Neiss in a fatal collision in Langley two weeks ago. Neiss, a Surrey resident and a bus driver employed by the Langley school district, was hit head-on after a dump truck hauling a “pup” trailer crossed over a double yellow line to pass a small white car on 16 Avenue. Eyewitnesses have told investigators

the truck was weaving in and out of traffic in an aggressive manner before impact. A visibly angry RCMP officer was blunt in his assessment of the crash. “This person [Neiss] had absolutely no chance,” said Supt. Norm Gaumont, who is responsible for traffic services in Metro Vancouver. “This person was minding his business on his side of the road.” Police say the 62-year-old dump truck driver will likely be facing criminal charges. But for Brenda Michie, there will be no redemption. She was planning to celebrate her 20th anniversary with Neiss on Feb. 2, and his 60th birthday on Feb. 7. Instead, she’s planning his memorial. Overcome with sorrow, she still expects to see her “Jimmy” when she arrives home at the end of the day. “I’m going to miss him...” she said through tears. “He was the love of my life.” Remember those words the next time you’re tempted to punch it past the slowpoke in front of you. They want to see their loved ones again too.

We also share the discrimination of U.K. pension freezing, along with many others who chose to live in Canada after World War II. Our situation is remarkably alike to the Muir’s as we came here with our young family in 1957. We are thankful that we are not reliant on the $200 a month, being our frozen U.K. Old Age Assistance. I too, have considered returning my war medals to the U.K. government, but as an 18-year-old infantry soldier who faced battle in North West Europe and was wounded in action during the assault over the Rhine in 1945, I have earned them. Unfortunately, we do not have the respect of the British government. I also do not expect to live to see this injustice remedied. Thank you for bringing this to public attention. Leonard Chenery

might be solid scores on a numeracy test involving higher level critical thinking skills. Conversely, what will be celebrated as success by the unsung teacher-heroes and parents at the inner city school will be very different. This form of success might be a fetal alcohol or otherwise challenged student developing some appropriate social skills. Perhaps learning an emergent set of academic skills along the way. Would it not be fair to say that both indicate success? Just different kinds of success. However, both are equally necessary at a societal level. It would be very difficult to develop one standardized test that could effectively assess these divergent realities. Hence, many educators and parents are now questioning the efficacy of a “one test fits all” program. Perhaps what should be rigorously assessed is not so much our present B.C. or Canadian public school system which systematically ranks among the top in the world, but a set of standardized test outcomes which provide at best a questionable picture of reality.

No respect from U.K. government

all tests given, emanate from a single standardized source. This is called the Integrated Resource Package (IRP), which is a large set of Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) set down by the ministry of education. Each teacher tests in a variety of ways over time using these learning outcomes. Every teacher reports out formally three times a year to parents based upon these outcomes. Most people “get” what educational research has exhaustively indicated: a variety of authentic assessments over time is superior to one large test administered on a single occasion. Then there is what I call “the issue of the reality check.” Many teachers would be happy with an effective standardized test, especially if it was not used for political ends. But the key word is “effective.” By this, I mean something that is fundamentally different from our present FSA test. If we are going to rank schools we had better come up with an authentic way to do so. For example, it borders on the foolish to pit a private school in a privileged area against an inner city school. What indicates success in the private school

NDP doesn’t accept the rule of big business I was amazed to learn from Tom Fletcher that the B.C. New Democratic Party is in deep trouble, mainly because it believes it’s wrong that the fraction of British Columbians who control most of the wealth keep getting richer while the rest of us keep getting poorer. Before Jan. 26, I thought it was the B.C. Liberal Party whose leader has been forced to resign in a shower of accusations of lying to the public and bungling the introduction of the hated HST. I thought it was the B.C. Liberals who were wallowing in the B.C. Rail scandal, the Kash Heed scandal, maintaining Canada’s lowest minimum wage, allowing a high rate of jobs lost through raw log exports, encouraging controversial net-cage salmon farming and waffling over proposed increases in oil tanker traffic. But no, it’s the NDP who are the villains.

S

Questionable picture of reality As the Foundational School Assessment Tests are occurring now in the Grades 4, 7, and 10 classrooms of B.C. public schools, I believe a response to Peter Cowley’s letter on this subject is in order. In short, Mr. Cowley’s premise is that we as taxpayers and the public should be provided with a definitive and conclusive way to compare public schools. What Mr. Cowley is asking for is for a greater significance to be placed on the objective results of government mandated standardized testing. There has been a huge global push over the past decade for these kinds of tests. For example, in the US, schools participated in the “No Child Left Behind” program of testing, which caused some schools beneficial to their community to be shut down. Why? Because their scores on standardized tests were not deemed to be high enough. As a teacher of almost 20 years in the B.C. public school system, I feel a response is in order: Educators have been conducting types of standardized testing for a long time. All units planned across the curriculum, all lessons taught, and

They simply don’t accept the rule of the Gordon Campbells who get together with big business to pile up profits and tell the B.C. public what’s good for them. New Democrats seem to think that the first function of a democratic government is to reflect the needs and wishes of the people, not the financial ambitions of the wealthy and powerful. Clearly, the working class must be guided by politicans and corporate CEOs through controls funded by insidious schemes like the HST, which lightens the tax load of big business by putting more of it on the ordinary taxpayer. Otherwise, the vast gap between the haves and the have-nots might start getting smaller, and we’d all be in deep trouble.

New school calendar set Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford board of education will vote next month on a school calendar for 2011-12 that maintains the two-week spring break, adds six instructional days to the year, and increases school district costs by $409,000. Board chair Cindy Schafer said the changes are being proposed to help meet a range of criteria. “We’ve tried to accommodate most of the opinions and concerns expressed by parents and the public,” she said. The board faced public backlash last spring when it voted to return to a oneweek spring vacation. It then reversed that decision for the 2010-11 school year, with trustees saying they would revisit the issue for the following year. Several trustees said they were concerned about extra minutes being added to each school day to make up for the extra week of spring vacation. They said a few minutes

extra per day did not provide the same quality of education that a full day would. This has been addressed in the proposed new calendar. The eight minutes currently added on to each elementary school day and nine minutes for high schools have been eliminated. Instead, six full instructional days have been added, amounting to an additional $409,000 in costs, mainly for staffing. Two of those days have been made up by moving spring break from mid-March

to April 2-13, which includes two statutory holidays – Good Friday and Easter Monday. Another two days are made up by placing two professional development days on Sept. 1 and 2, before the official start of school on Sept. 6. Another change balances out the number of days in each secondary and middle school semesters – 91 and 95 days, as opposed to 89 and 97 in the standard calendar. A public information meeting on the proposed calendar takes place Feb. 15 at

7:30 p.m. at W. J. Mouat Secondary. Starting Feb. 16, an online survey will be available on the school district website or on paper at local schools. Delegations are welcome to speak at the board of education meeting on Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the school district administration office. The deadline to apply to address the board is Feb. 17. Written submissions to the board will be received until March 4. The board will vote on the calendar on March 28 at 7:30 p.m.

Mabel is a happy duck Kerri-Anne SCHOENIT Abbotsford News

An indoor swimming pool has helped an arthritic duck find her water wings. Mabel was brought to Elizabeth’s Wildlife Centre nine years ago after a resident found her stranded in the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre parking lot. The Peking duck was never released back into the wild because she suffers from severe arthritis in her legs, making walking difficult and flying impossible. To get up and waddle a few steps, she plants her yellow bill down on the ground and uses it for leverage to elevate herself. Mabel undergoes several different forms of therapy to help ease pressure on her swollen joints, including chiropractic treatments. The latest remedy is half-hour swim sessions at K9 H20 Canine Aquatic Facility in Abbotsford. “She loves it. She has the time of her life going in and out of the water, and splashing around,” said Elizabeth Melnick, who runs the non-profit wildlife centre. “It’s nice for her because she gets to have this buoyancy.” Melnick gives Mabel her own little wading pool filled with warm water during the summer, but it’s too shallow for her to actually swim. At K9 H20, Mabel is free to bob around the pool, flap her wings and dunk her head under water.

An Abbotsford man was one of two culprits who fled from police in a stolen car and were arrested early Wednesday after crashing the vehicle in downtown Maple Ridge. Ridge Meadows RCMP picked up their trail around 2 a.m. after Langley RCMP advised officers the car was crossing the Golden Ears Bridge. Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the car accelerated when police tried to get the driver to pull over, so officers did not pursue it. The car eventually struck a utility pole near Brown Avenue. Two men ran from the car, but were captured by Mounties with a police dog. Jeffrey Brian MacDonald, a 21-year-old from Surrey, and Lucas Anthony Morgan, 19-year-old from Abbotsford, face one count each of flight from a peace officer, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and possession of stolen property. The stolen car was badly damaged.

A 2 1/2-year-old child was discovered alone in an apartment Thursday night after Abbotsford Police arrested the toddler’s mother and her boyfriend. Const. Ian MacDonald said the 25-year-old man, who was formerly connected to the Duhre Group, was arrested leaving an underground parking lot in the 32700 block of George Ferguson Way at about 10 p.m. Police had been planning to issue a warrant to search his residence. Moments later, his 20-year-old girlfriend was taken into custody in a hallway of the apartment building. Her young child was found alone in the suite, and was turned over to the Ministry of Children and Family Development. The search of the residence turned up crack cocaine, a small amount of heroin, cellphones and cash. The couple will be facing drug charges. MacDonald said the investigation continues into people who have splintered away from the Duhre Group. In December, police arrested four men who they said had broken away from the gang and were forming their own group to take over drug supply lines established by the Duhre organization.

FOUNDATION SKILLS ASSESSMENT (FSA)

(

What Really Counts?

starting from

TEACHERS KNOW: • how their students are progressing by using frequent tests that fairly and reliably measure student performance. • that the stress created by excessive testing can interfere with learning and can discourage students, decreasing their motivation to learn. This is most apparent in students who have difficulty learning, those in greatest need of support.

TEACHERS ARE CONCERNED: • that the FSA results are used to unfairly compare students and schools and to classify students and schools as winners and losers. • that time spent in the classroom preparing for the FSAs takes valuable time away from teaching and learning and away from richer, more meaningful experiences for students.

TEACHERS ARE ACTING TO: • speak out and express their concerns about the negative effects of the FSA. • work with parents to stop the loss of meaningful instructional time to wholesale testing.

TEACHERS ARE ASKING: • parents to consider the negative effects of the FSA and discuss this with their children’s teachers.

Promise Rings

• parents to send a request for FSA exemption of their children to the principal. • parents express their concerns about FSAs to the Board of Education.

THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION STATES: • all Grade 4 and 7 students will write the FSA unless there are exceptional circumstances. • students who do not write the FSA will be given a “Has Not Yet Demonstrated Meeting Expectations” designation. However, this will not affect the student’s class mark! According to the Ministry of Education, the “FSA results do not count towards the student’s report card marks.” If you have further questions, please contact: Abbotsford District Teachers’ Association 2570 Cyril Street Abbotsford, BC V2S 2G2 Phone: 604-854-1946 Fax: 604-850-5100

New portable classrooms Vikki HOPES and Kurt LANGMANN Abbotsford News

Preparations are underway in the Abbotsford school district for all kindergarten classes to become full-day sessions in September. The district currently has 19 elementary schools with full-day sessions, while the remaining 10 are due to come on board for the 2011-12 year. These schools were delayed in the introduction of full-day kindergarten because they required either renovations or the addition of portable classrooms. In October, the board of education approved a capital project bylaw for almost $620,000 to complete the work. This does not include the cost of the modular units themselves, which amount to $212,000 each. School district spokesman Dave Stephen said three schools â&#x20AC;&#x201C; King, Mountain and South Poplar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are undergoing site preparation to accommodate modular classrooms. The other schools are getting renovations such as new shelving and millwork, the addition of storage areas, new furniture and painting. The modular units are currently being constructed in Aldergrove at Shelter Industries Inc. and Greensmart Manufacturing Ltd. The three in Abbotsford are among 138 that will be situated across the province, accommodating 110,400 full-day kindergarten students in 25 school districts. Each unit is expected to have a lifespan of about 40 years. Heavy internal beams give them solid protection from heavy snow loads, heavy winds

Lower Mainland to the far north. Each unit also comes with a modern heating system that is adaptable for whatever type

of service is available in each community, whether it be natural gas, propane, electrical or connection to the hot water system in the main school building. Interior walls are high-quality wood panelling over drywall, and electrically activated screens roll down over the windows to protect them from vandalism. The number of students entering full-day kindergarten in Abbotsford in September is not yet available. In 2010-11, 916 students were enrolled in full-day classes, while another 444 were in half-day programs.

Grade 12 aviation students from Rick Hansen Secondary stepped into the cockpit for their final exam last week. The hand-on experience offered the aspiring pilots an opportunity to start logging hours in a flight simulator. Sitting in a small, windowless room at the back of the Coastal Pacific Aviation airport hanger in Abbotsford, digital screens and navigational equipment offer realistic mechanical and weather conditions. “This is the very first time they actually get to sit and experience what it feels like to fly a plane, while still in high school,” said program instructor Ian Newton, a former Canadian Forces pilot. “It’s a real benefit.”

JOHN VAN PUTTEN

Abbotsford News

Rick Hansen Grade 12 aviation students Daymen Deol and Josh Cercel go over their flight plan with Coastal Pacific flight instructor Seiji Inouye. The pair were among 16 Grade 12 students in the aviation program who had the opportunity to try the flight simulator. During the course, students learned how to read weather maps, interpret weather patterns and adjust that for navigation,

as well as how weight, balance and fuel consumption are linked when creating flight plans. The simulators

tested each of their routes to Nanaimo and helped them learn from errors. “It’s a lot of fun Continued on A19

AirCare almost fails inspection at FVRD Robert FREEMAN Black Press

The AirCare program nearly failed inspection at the Fraser Valley Regional District last week, despite the estimated $77 million in health benefits the program brings by reducing vehicle emissions. FVRD directors approved a motion to continue support for the $47-million program for another 10 years, but only after it was amended with a call to include “heavy polluters” currently exempt from inspection. Chilliwack director Chuck Stam said he could not support the program as long as it targeted only the “low-hanging fruit” of vehicle owners who can’t afford new cars or the cost of repairs to pass AirCare inspections. He wanted to see marine traffic – the freighters and cruise ships that ply B.C. waters – inspected along with automobiles. “Why are we not going after where the real problem lies?” U.S. Environmental Protection Agency called for a ban in 2009 to stop all large ocean-going vessels

that did not meet emission standards from entering the waters around North American coasts, a move it said could save up to 8,300 lives each year in North America. Nearly 424,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases were pumped into the Fraser Valley airshed by ocean-going vessels in 2000, about half that amount by harbour vessels, and half that again by BC Ferries, for a total 717,000 tonnes, according to an inventory conducted by the Greater Vancouver Regional District. In 2005, light-duty gasoline vehicles emitted about 271,000 tonnes of pollutants in B.C., according to BC Air Quality statistics, plus another 297,000 tonnes from light-duty gasoline trucks for a total 568,000 tonnes. AirCare estimates the 17,440 tonnes of pollutants it will eliminate each year at a cost of $47 million annually, shows the cost-effectiveness of the program, especially in light of the estimated $77 million it will also save each year in health care costs. There’s also the $35 million in revenue generated for the auto repair industry from vehicles that failed

inspection, and the estimated $21 million in new car sales as owners take “beaters” off the road altogether. Vehicles made after 2005 do not require inspection. About 43,000 vehicles, nearly 10 per cent of the total inspected, failed last year. Directors who defended the program were concerned about the “hypocritical” message the FVRD would be sending, if it withdrew support. Terry Gidda, Mission area director, said the board has often blamed air pollution on contaminants blown up the valley from Vancouver. “If we don’t support this, they’re going to say we’re not supporting clean air in our own area,” he said. Abbotsford director Simon Gibson agreed. The regional district is “obliged” to fight air pollution, he said. “AirCare is one of the ways we can do this.” David Gourley, AirCare operations manager, agreed technological advances “keep getting better” at reducing emissions, but there will “always be advantages in checking vehicles for safety and maintenance periodically.”

Unwind & Breathe in Downtown Abbotsford Let’s start with matters of the heart! February is going to be a great month to “unwind and breathe” for our favourite community residents and customers in Historic Downtown Abbotsford. Valentine’s Day is coming up fast and if you thought this would be a high stress time to Ànd just the right sentiment and gift for your sweetheart, you are shopping and living in the wrong area. In Historic Downtown we encourage “unwinding” by treating yourself and your favourite person to the best day ever starting with a trim or cut at any of our top-notch men’s barbershops. Arrange a spa treatment or mani and pedicure at one of our twenty-seven salons. While she is enjoying being pampered, you could go for a quick workout at one of our training centres. Now that you are both feeling relaxed and looking marvellous darling, stroll into our chic boutiques. Experience the best personalized service you’ll get anywhere, while shopping for the perfect gift, decorations, personal stationery, and outÀts selected just for your favourite people…you! All that relaxing and shopping will really make you hungry, so we recommend Ànishing off your Valentine adventure with a scrumptious meal from any ethnic cuisine your heart desires in one of our twenty-eight restaurants and eateries… great idea isn’t it? February 16 – 27 is Heritage week in

BC. Stop in and see what just a few of our merchants have to celebrate. Try Queen Elizabeth cupcakes at Tracycakes Bakery Café and beading workshops at Bigfoot Moccasin. Women, rediscover your pioneer strength at National Training Centre, and check out the antique glass show and sale at Emotional Rescue Hair. Time to “breathe”. There are so many things to see, do and shop for in Historic Downtown that you just can’t decide which way to turn. We recommend ADBA Gift CertiÀcates that can be used anywhere downtown. Just purchase a gift certiÀcate for your Valentine at SerendipiTea, J-B’s Chocolates, A&D Music, Strung Out on Beads or Tourism Abbotsford and then let them Ànd the perfect way to unwind with a gift certiÀcate in hand.

Playtime donated the funds to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice being built in Abbotsford.

Dimes from Dunach help Haiti Just before Christmas, staff and students at Dunach Elementary School held a fundraiser in support of Haiti. The funds were sent to help provide blackboards and benches for a school in Marbial, Haiti which had been destroyed in the earthquake. Faith and Love Children’s Ministry (FLCM) has rebuilt the school and will be receiving Dunach’s donation of $1,697.63. The school campaign was named “Dimes from Dunach” and involved boys versus girls collecting change, cash, cheques and other donations.

Students became involved and were excited to extend themselves to others in desperate need. A bulletin board in the front entrance of the school, highlighted the fundraiser and showed pictures of the receiving community. Last year, Dunach students raised $550 for the Haiti earthquake relief effort, which was matched by the government to total $1,100. The school intends to continue its fundraising efforts by participating in a seed program that will provide seeds, foods, income and sustainable living to the Haitian community.

Right time to prune After visiting Japan a few years ago, my perspective on pruning certainly changed. From a country where virtually every ornamental tree is pruned severely, for cultural, artistic and space reasons, we can learn many things about trimming trees. One of our biggest mistakes in landscaping is allowing trees to grow until they become so large they are overpowering. Overgrown trees are difficult to prune back hard and yet still keep them looking attractive. It’s also difficult to prune back new landscape plants, especially when you’re wanting your trees to grow quickly and fill in. I’m afraid, however, it is something that must be done. Many people hesitate to prune an evergreen because they are afraid of ruining the tree. Its shape can certainly be distorted by incorrect pruning, but seldom is the tree destroyed. Experimenting with a few trees in your landscape is one of the best ways to learn, and mistakes can usually be corrected. Armed with a little basic information and common sense, anyone can prune their landscape plants. Timing, however, is everything. The best time to begin pruning most evergreens is

Whether its flowers, plants or trees, the secret to a successful pruning is timing. now. Evergreens or conifers are the easiest of all trees to prune. Tall growing cedars and cypress can be pruned with quality, sharp two-handed grass shears for light trimming, or with electric or motorized hedge shears for heavy going. Simply prune following the natural shape of the tree. Columnar cedars, such as ‘smaragds’ and ‘pyramidalis’ should be pruned in narrow columns, and trees like Golden

Cedars and Green Cypress should be pruned in a little wider pyramidal form for the ultimate effect in a landscape. Their tops can be cut off at any height. Their sides must be sheared yearly to maintain an attractive form. The secret to maintaining good colour and new growth is to prune into the soft wood of last year’s growth. Cutting into the old hard wood results in rather shaggy-looking Continued on A28

growth pattern. The same is true for pines. The growth candles at the tip of every branch must sprout and develop before any pruning takes place. Cut the new candles in half when you prune, and it will result in a fuller, more compact plant. Unless you live in a very large landscaped area, all spruce and pines should be pruned narrow and hard to maintain a form that is both appropriate and attractive in smaller landscapes. Dwarf Mugho pines should be pruned in a low dome shape for the most pleasing effect. Over the past 30 years, we’ve learned so much at our gardens about pruning evergreens. One of the most important lessons has been in order to keep the size of trees in proportion to the landscape and to maintain their beauty far longer, they need an annual pruning.

The last time the Abbotsford Heat and Chicago Wolves tangled, back in December at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, the club’s split a pair of games. On Friday, the Heat were in Chicago as part of a 10-game road trip.

Heat halfway home Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

I

t’s been a long time since local hockey fans had the opportunity to cheer on the Heat – at least in person. The club is halfway through a 10-game road trip which will see it play five games in six nights before coming home. Abbotsford has earned a respectable 2-2-1 record in the first half of the trip and kicked off the next, rigourous stretch last night in Chicago. Coach Jim Playfair knows his team faces a challenge, but expects his players to stay focused and play consistent hockey. “We just have to try and keep the games close and score one more goal than our opponents,” said Playfair. That methodology has been working recently, thanks to a powerplay that has suddenly come

Getting more shots on net is critical according to Playfair, who said the team needs to score the “dirty goals.” The Heat have a new weapon to deploy during the latter portion of the season. Ales Kotalik had his first practice with the team on Thursday and should be inserted into the line-up immediately. The 32-year-old right winger, whose slapshot has been clocked at 105 mph, was sent down from the parent Calgary Flames. Playfair said he isn’t sure what line he’ll use the NHL veteran on, but expects him to contribute immediately. “I expect him to be a really good player ... If he wants to get back into the NHL, I expect him to be a leader, on and off the ice,” said Playfair. Following Friday night’s game in Chicago, the Heat are in Rockford tonight, Lake Erie on Sunday, Hamilton on Tuesday and finally in Rochester on Feb. 9. The locals return home for a game on Feb. 11 against the Toronto Marlies.

Resto Ride

Custom Vehicle Make Over

Customizing a Classic S

tuart Stobbe is in the business of building dreams. His current project at Valley Custom Rods and Collision in Abbotsford is the restoration of a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Post for a client in Chilliwack. The car arrived at the shop in midNovember with faded turquoisewhite paint and several rust spots. It still had all its original parts, except for the engine and transmission. “It was in decent shape,” says Stobbe. “He just wanted to bring it up to show level. So we’re basically rebuilding the whole car from the ground up.” The classic Chevy was first completely dismantled. Every nut and bolt was removed, the interior taken out and the body separated from its frame. A new racing-style steel chassis with four-wheel disc brakes, and rack and pinion steering was then ordered from Art Morrison Enterprises in Tacoma, Washington. The majority of work is now focused on the undercarriage, and building up the wheels and brake system. Once the bottom of the car is finished and the frame tested, the three-member restoration team will then install a new engine and transmission. The final stage is painting and assembly. “It is time consuming,” says Stobbe. “It’s something that you really have

to love to do. I really like to see something go from start to finish.” The biggest challenge on this project is the time line. Normally a rebuild like this would take a year, but the client wants the work completed in six months. The plan is to reveal the restored Chevy at the B.C. Classic & Custom Car Show at Tradex in April.

Stobbe has been restoring vehicles for about 20 years out of his home garage. That hobby turned into a business three years ago. Valley Custom Rods works on custom cars and trucks, muscle, classic, vintage and hot rods. The shop is also an authorized dealer for OZE Rods.

SPRATT: Katherina Tena It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Katherina Tena Spratt at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission, BC. Tena was born in Hochfeld, SK, the eldest child of Gerhard and Katharina Andres (née Dyck). She was raised in Arabella, SK with her siblings John, George, Jake, Margaret, Mary and Susanna until her marriage to her childhood sweetheart, Abram Klassen, on July 3, 1949. Abe and Tena established their home in Trail, BC. They delighted in the birth of each of their children, Margaret, Peter and David. Abe passed away May 21, 1961 and so with grace and fortitude Tena raised her family, establishing a productive life in her church and community. Tena married Robert David Spratt on October 1, 1977, welcoming his children into her life, grieving with them upon his death on March 23, 1990. She retired in 1984, living in the home Abe had built until its sale in 2007, and in an apartment until September 2009, when a fall precipitated her move to Abbotsford, BC. She went peacefully home to the Lord at the age of 85 years, after a valiant battle with cancer. Tena is survived by her sisters, Margaret Durell, Mary (Jerry) Martens and Susanna (John) Klassen; her children, Margaret (Grant) Allan, Peter (Debbie) Klassen, and David Klassen; her grandchildren, Katherine Allan, Jennifer (William) Matthews, Heather Allan, Neil Klassen, Jessica Klassen, and Sean Warsing; and her great-grandchildren, Grant Matthews and Gwenyth Matthews, cousins, nieces and nephews, and many friends.

A memorial Service will be held at First Presbyterian Church in Trail, BC on Monday, February 7, 2011 at 2:00 p.m., with Rev.
