Water the hot topic for candidates

CITY TO LEAVE FVRD Council wants out of regional district but needs provincial approval A4

Council hopefuls debate the central issue of this civic election Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

A standing-room-only crowd greeted the 21 council hopefuls Tuesday night at the all-candidates meeting held at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium. While they faced many questions, Abbotsford’s future water source became the hot topic of the evening. Once the proposed publicprivate partnership (P3) plan to create a new Stave Lake water source was raised as an issue, the rebuttal cards came out as the candidates staked their position. Vince Dimanno was given the first water-related question, saying he’s against the P3 plan, preferring what he thinks will be a less expensive, public option. “We will take the profit of the private funder out of the equation, we will take the profit of the private operator out of the equation and it will be less expensive,” said Dimanno. But incumbent John Smith believes the offer of $65.7 million in funding from the federal government makes the P3 plan the right choice. “That’s a critical amount of money. Without that I don’t think we can do this,” said John Smith. He said the project can be built cheaper as a P3. Many candidates disagreed and offered alternative plans. Continued on A5

Abbotsford will leave the Fraser Valley Regional District, if the provincial government approves. Council voted 8-1 Monday night in favour of asking the Victoria for permission to become a single tier governance. It’s a move that, according to a staff report, could save the city close to $759,000 a year. In 2010, Abbotsford contributed just over $3 million to the FVRD (about half the collected funding for services). After hearing the city’s concerns regarding costs and benefits, the FVRD reduced the amount by $720,000 in 2011. However, an estimated increase of $100,000 in garbage tipping fees, and 911 and fire call answering levies, reduced the savings to about $620,000. The city’s report said Abbotsford could provide all the services presently done by the FVRD, at a cost of just $1.64 million. Services include 911 and fire dispatch, as well as weed and mosquito control, regional development, solid waste management, and fiscal services.

cally eliminate one layer of government.” Coun. Patricia Ross, who is also the chair of the FVRD, was the lone voice against the move, saying the regional district is an important partner that Abbotsford should not dismiss so easily. She called the staff report – and a second report on municipal governance, performed for the city by Harry Kitchen of Trent University – flawed. Ross said no one “had an actual conversation” with the regional district when creating the reports, and that it costs the average Abbotsford household just $2.42 a month for all the FVRD services. “I cannot see us possibly saving ... when all is said and done, this will cost us more,” said Ross. And she felt there was more to lose than just money.

Abbotsford News

Council candidates squared off during a session on Tuesday night at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, which attracted close to 400 people.

Candidates debate issues

For the second time, council has rejected a plan to develop the northwest slope of Vedder Mountain. The zoning request, by Hayes Creek Valley Enterprises, owned by Anthony Penner, would have allowed the properties located in the 41100 to 41300 block of Old Yale Road to be subdivided for a 31-lot single-family development. Dozens of local farmers came out to a public hearing last month to oppose the project.

Abbotsford News Thursday, November 10, 2011

A young man whose recent shooting fuelled fears about rising gang violence in the Lower Mainland had brief criminal ties to Abbotsford. Axel Curtis, 29, was shot dead in broad daylight while walking his dog in Vancouver’s Fairview neighbourhood on Sunday. Witnesses say at least six shots were fired by a man clad in

black, and the shots continued as the victim lay on the ground in the fetal position. Curtis was a convicted drug trafficker, found guilty of possession for the purposes of trafficking and possession of a firearm in Vancouver in 2007. He had connections to the UN Gang. In 2009 he was charged with pos-

session for the purposes of trafficking in Abbotsford. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said it appears Curtis was only operating here for about a month. He was found to be in possession of packages of marijuana police believed to be destined to be smuggled into Matsqui Institution. One charge against

leave the FVRD, it will likely take some debt with it. Abbotsford is currently part of the Fraser Valley Regional Hospital District. If the city were to form its own regional hospital district, it would have to take on $28 million in debt (approximately 49 per cent of the FVRHD’s current $58 million debt). Financing this, according to the staff report, would be about the same amount as it currently pays to the regional hospital district. Further discussions will be needed with the Fraser Health Authority to determine any cost sharing for services as the Abbotsford Regional Hospital serves residents outside of Abbotsford. The decision to move forward on the plan, which was presented by city manager Frank Pizzuto,

comes just 12 days before the municipal election. The subject was not on Monday night’s meeting agenda. Pizzuto said council discussed it in an earlier meeting that day, and decided to bring it forward to the general public session. While the vote means the city can formally request permission to leave the FVRD, it doesn’t mean council can’t change its mind. “If the provincial government approves, there will be a process that they will establish ... it may come back to council, once we know the terms and conditions. I don’t think it’s ever too late to abort if we decide that we don’t want to proceed,” said Peary. Currently, the FVRD consists of six municipalities – Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Kent and Harrison - and eight electoral areas.

Honour and respect

Tomorrow is Remembrance Day. That means a long weekend for most British Columbians. And the temptation to take full advantage of the three-day respite from work will be great. Some may hightail it out of town. Some will get a start on their Christmas shopping. Which is all well and good, provided we pause to honour and reflect on the sacrifices others made that allow us to enjoy such luxuries as long weekends, travel, bountiful stores. The last of the First World War veterans are gone. The ranks of those who served in the Second World War dwindle every year. Soon they, and the stories they tell to enliven that conflict to current generations, will also be gone. Their sacrifice and their selfless contribution when they were in the prime of their lives to allow us our current freedoms and quality of life are unquestioned. When they went off to war, the enemy was apparent, unmistakable in its intent. Their job was to be liberators, to vanquish that enemy, banish it forever

as a threat. As we watch them shuffle by in ever-smaller ranks at Remembrance Day ceremonies, it’s hard not to swell with pride at the job they did so well. The veterans of more contemporary conflicts, like the war in Afghanistan, don’t have it so easy. The war they were sent to fight is not universally seen as our war. The freedoms they fight to uphold are more removed from our daily lives. The decision to send them there is regarded by some as more political than just. Sixty years on, their stories won’t be of heroic landings by tens of thousands on fortified beaches; they’ll be about patrols along dusty roads where death might lurk in a pothole around the next corner. The success of their missions won’t be measured in our ability to vote in free elections but in better access to education and an improved standard of living in faraway lands. For that, their sacrifice is no less deserving of our honour and respect. – Black Press

‘Occupy’ is just another squat Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views A full three weeks after the Occupy Wall Street protest camp sprang up in New York City, a few stragglers announced they were almost ready to “Occupy Maple Ridge” and “Occupy Revelstoke.” Perhaps other pathetic protests are still being dreamed up around B.C. But most have already packed up, and in places such as Prince George, these anti-capitalist rallies never led to an illegal squat. Let’s be clear about our squats, the ones in Canada and particularly B.C. They are explicitly anti-capitalist and statist in their message, which is presumably why they were funded by government unions. Despite the free food, power and portapotties, these squats quickly became filthy and dangerous as the chronic street drug population replaced the spoiled young drummers and hula-hoopers who camped out to curse corporations on their iPhones.

And yes, squats are still illegal here, following the unanimous October decision of the B.C. Court of Appeal against David Arthur Johnston. This pretend-homeless guy’s antics are at the root of the latest squatter outbreak. Victoria and its courts caved in to Johnston and allowed camping on public property at night. But he demanded 24-hour squatting rights, because some supposedly homeless people are supposedly insomniacs, too. Turns out there were plenty of shelter beds on which to snooze away the day or night, and his vague claim of a constitutional right to camp on public property was summarily dismissed. I had a brief exchange with an Occupy Vancouver “organizer,” one Min Reyes, as she tried to rouse the reluctant radicals of Maple Ridge. Reyes defines herself in her Twitter profile as “Flirting with Anarchism while making love to Socialism,” which sums up B.C.’s occupy movement as well as anything. “My personal approach to the analysis of society relies on Marx’s historical materialism,” Reyes writes on her blog. After majoring in Marxism at SFU, she moved on to BCIT’s journalism program, but dropped out after a couple of weeks

because her studies “compromised my personal values.” Turns out BCIT is all about “skills” to get a “job.” Bummer. A glimpse of these “values” was on display when a reporter from CKNW radio tried to cover a heroin overdose at Occupy Vancouver. She was shouted down and accused of shaping the news to benefit “Coke and McDonalds.”

Perhaps other pathetic protests are still being dreamed up around B.C. But most have already packed up... At Occupy Victoria, which I visited a few times before it descended into another needle park, signs warned against “chem trails,” smart meters and corporations. Campers were urged to “nationalize finance, energy and food” industries. Fiveyear plan for tractor production, anyone? Nationalizing banks is also at the top of Occupy Vancouver’s long, pretentious list

of demands. Why is this stale leftist ideology so pervasive? Here’s a hint. The union representing these kids’ teachers is demanding higher corporate taxes to pay for their typically self-serving, financially illiterate contract demands. In Victoria, as in Vancouver, the huge growth in shelter, food, clothing and transition housing service doesn’t impress the hardcore system users. Victoria’s mayor built his reputation with years of street outreach work, but he’s still targeted for the ugliest treatment, including vandalism at his family home. Victoria council even kowtowed by voting to “support” the squat next to city hall, where Johnston used to camp. Then they cut off the power and water, which had been commandeered rather than set up by city staff at taxpayers’ expense, as was the case in Vancouver. In B.C.’s most “progressive” cities, we’re getting used to encountering public areas fouled by vomit, feces and used needles.

Forever grateful for the sacrifice What has mankind done for the good of humanity with the hard-fought freedoms, received 66 years ago, that cost the lives of 55 million living souls? A r o u n d Remembrance Day each year, when sitting by a cozy warm fireplace, I cannot help but think of the millions of soldiers, in the Second World War, who were forced to spend many a night

in cold, dark manholes dug deep in earth. Yes, indeed, how the world has changed since then. Right after the war in 1946, the first allpurpose computercame on the scene. In 1958, microchips were invented. In 1960, the first satellite appeared, enabling humans to now enjoy 24 hours of live television around the globe. And who can forget

the magic moments when we saw Neil Armstrong step on the moon in 1969? Then along come the pocket calculators, and the first laptop, and the famous World Wide Web appeared in 1994, followed by the now famous iPod used by nearly everyone today. I am sure there will be more mind-boggling inventions just around the corner for us.

Incumbents out of touch For the first time in my 60-plus years I will be voting in a municipal election. It would seem that most of the incumbents are out of touch with reality. They are busy spending our tax dollars convincing us that now is the time we must go hundreds of millions of dollars into debt lest our taps run dry in a few years. We have all seen estimates spiral out of sight. Maybe it is time to

curb new developments – send them over to Mission, they’re closer to the water anyway – plus we are already getting quite congested especially with more malls and high-rises looming. Maybe it’s time to really promote rain water catchment and embark on a generous low-flow toilet promotion, to name a few. No one endorsing this P3 program will be getting my vote. Martyn Hough

But with all the technological advancements, and conveniences placed at our fingertips, life seems to be busier than ever before. Could we be neglecting common, every day thinking? Teenagers today are inundated with immoral temptations the older generations could not have dreamt of. How many parents actually recognize the importance of raising a family in a stable and caring home life? Just how many modern parents recognize the fact that the most sensitive thing in the universe is the soul of a little child? How many truly believe that a good and stable marriage is

the moral compass in society? Just what type of moral standards do modern parents exemplify and teach their children? Somehow, I cannot help but wonder how life would be today if Hitler, with much the same character than Moammar Gadhafi, would have seen his dream fullfilled. Nonetheless, life goes on, no matter what happens to any of us. Along with millions of other people around the globe, I want to be forever grateful to all those who gave up their lives so that we could live and enjoy this glorious freedom each new day. Just how fortunate we are. Gertie Pool

Nov. 11 – A day to remember Melissa WELSH Abbotsford News

On Remembrance Day this Friday, veterans will once again take part in a march to the cenotaph. World War II and Korean War veterans, peacekeeping groups, and members from the Abbotsford Royal Canadian Legion, will march along the route heading west on Simon Avenue, across Trethewey Street and onto Veterans Way. Local police, firefighters, and air and army cadets will also participate in the parade.

Arriving at the cenotaph at the 11th hour, the crowd will stop in silence for two minutes, after which a cadet will play the famous “Last Post.” The bugle call was named after a poem that describes a soldier’s funeral during WWI and was written by Robert Graves. It was also performed in battle as a signal to soldiers who were separated or wandering that the fighting was over, and to follow the sound back to safety. Names of fallen soldiers from within the

Abbotsford area will be read aloud by master of ceremonies Donald Stevenson. Ann Bason of Abbotsford has been named the Silver Cross Mother. Her husband Gary will lay a wreath in honour of their son, Master Cpl. Colin Bason, killed in Afghanistan in 2007. The ceremony will continue with various organizations and members of government laying wreaths. Those wishing to attend are encouraged to arrive at the cenotaph by 10:30 a.m.

Parking will be available at the Clearbrook Library, 32320 George Ferguson Way. After the event, the Abbotsford Legion at 2513 West Railway St. will offer refreshments to those over the age of 19. At the Reach Museum and Gallery on Veterans Way, hot chocolate, coffee and tea will be provided for all ages. Poppies, worn in remembrance of those who gave their lives

in war, are available at shopping centres and numerous other locations around Abbotsford. The donations raised are in support of veterans, their families and widows. “If we forget the sacrifices of these people, the thousands of lives that were given and the hundreds of thousands of men that went to war, our nation will be the poorer,” said Art Turnbull, legion chaplain.

House of blues The sound of jazz and blues will fill the House of James this Saturday, with the Steve Delamar Band. The Chilliwack group includes members Steve Delamar as lead vocalist/guitar, Darrell Richards on drums, Gerry Dyck on bass, Jeff Bowman on electric guitar, and James Stobbe on saxophone. Original songs, in addition to rhythm, blues and gospel covers, will be played at the coffeehouse at 2743 Emerson St. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and admission is by donation. For more information call 604-852-3701 or visit www.myspace.com/stevedelamar/ friends.

A “centre for excellence” is in the works at the University of the Fraser Valley, in the form of a Pacific Berry Resource Centre partnership. On Nov. 3, represen-

tatives of UFV’s agriculture and technology department signed a memorandum of understanding with a number of partners in the berry industry to move forward with

the Pacific Berry Resource Centre. The goal of the centre is to move the berry industry to the leading edge of research and education. UFV is collaborating with

the British Columbia Blueberry Council (BCBC), Raspberry Industry Development Council (RIDC) and the Fraser Valley Strawberry Growers Association (FVSGA)

to launch the centre. Together, the groups will utilize technical expertise, share existing assets, collaborate on projects, and utilize funding within UFV’s upgraded educational facilities. The centre partnership has received $30,000 from the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, and approximately $80,000 in “innovations funding “ from the federal Growing Forward program. The Pacific Berry Resource Centre will aim to develop the most environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable industry in North America. Joining forces and creating a network will help researchers at UFV tackle problems associated with topics such as variety development, plant husbandry, postharvest management, and marketing. Major co-operators will be the growers, the processing industry, the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, private consultants, the Pacific Northwest berry groups, and the Sustainable Horticulture Institute in Langley. The centre will be based in both Chilliwack and Abbotsford. When the new UFV Chilliwack campus at the Canada Education Park opens in May 2012, it will house a growing centre consisting of an agriculture building, labs, greenhouses, offices and field facilities for growing and testing. In Abbotsford, planning of a field facility will begin in 2012, with the hopes of having it in place by 2013. For more information on UFV, visit the UFV Today blog at http://blogs.ufv.ca/

RememberThem WE WILL

In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

In appreciation of those who have served, and those who continue to do so.

take time to remember -LEST WE FORGET-

We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders Fields.

Taps Day is done, gone the sun From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky All is well, safely rest God is nigh.

Take up our quarrel with the foe; To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Fields

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. Lest we forget.

The Poppy’s Significance The poppy’s significance to Remembrance Day is a result of Canadian military physician John McCrae’s poem ‘In Flanders Fields’. The poppy emblem was chosen because of the poppies that bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their red colour an appropriate symbol for the bloodshed of

trench warfare. A Frenchwoman, Anna E. Guerin, introduced the widely used artificial poppies given out today. Some people choose to wear white poppies, which emphasize a desire for peaceful alternatives to military action.

It’s the month of Movember, when men across Canada sprout moustaches to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostrate cancer. The Abbotsford

A News civic election special section

Water is the dominant election issue Political lines drawn around proposed Stave Lake project Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

The citizens of Abbotsford will head to the polls on Nov. 19 to choose a new mayor, eight councillors and seven board of education members. This year there’s an additional question on the ballot – a referendum on water, which has become the most controversial and debated issue in Abbotsford’s 2011 civic election. Mayoral and council hopefuls have clearly stated their positions. All of the incumbent candidates, with the exception of Coun. Patricia Ross, are in favour of a plan to create a $291-million water supply and treatment centre at Stave Lake. The project would be accomplished by entering into a publicprivate partnership (P3) with an as-yet-undetermined private company to design, build, partially finance and operate the treatment plant. If the electorate approves the P3 project, the federal government will contribute up to $65.7 million in funding.

Most of the challenging candidates are opposed to the water proposal – except council hopefuls Mark Rushton and Doris WoodmanMcMillan. In addition to the attraction of federal funding, those in favour of the plan cite cost efficiencies gained through a P3 deal, along with project risk being borne by the private sector. Those opposed have concerns about private involvement in a municipal water treatment facility, which would be a source of corporate profit. Others question whether a new source of water is needed now, suggesting enhanced conservation methods would meet the city’s water

needs for the near future. Other candidates want to revisit other water source options. While water has taken centre stage in this election, Abbotsford is facing other important issues. Public safety is another topic of debate as Abbotsford’s police force, which consumes almost half of the city’s budget, continues efforts to reduce crime in the city, with new initiatives focused on preventing gang violence. Taxation is always a political issue, but after last year’s increase of 4.3 per cent and a five-year financial plan calling for more hikes each year, some residents are calling for relief. A number of candidates are point-

C I V I C OTE NOV 19

ing to fiscal responsibility as a key to the election. Other issues which have been debated include affordable housing, secondary suites, bylaw enforcement and sustainable growth. Some feel the densification of Abbotsford has to become a major concern for council as, with limited land available, the city needs to grow upward rather than out. Candidates for the Abbotsford Board of Education are dealing with their own set of issues. Keeping students involved, and meeting their diverse educational needs, are two of the top issues being put forward by new candidates and incumbents alike. Funding is another question that faces candidates every year. The challenge is to create the best learning environment possible with the funds available. Other factors mentioned by trustee candidates include increased parental involvement, preparing students for the workforce, anti-bullying programs and innovation. The election takes place Nov. 19.

Proposed P3 and water supply; municipal waste / tax burden; transportation issues (transit, roads, rapid rail)

Government transparency; an end to costly contracts; sensible growth

Stave Lake water; public safety/crime; taxes

I should be elected because: The most democratic level of government should be municipal, but it’s not that way here. The mayor exercises too much control over the eight elected councillors. Public meetings are charades for decisions really made in-camera. In 2002, Stave Lake was recognized as the best option for additional water supply. Yet in 2005, council diverted $170,000 of our money to ram through approval for an entertainment/sports centre. Unable to operate this monstrosity, they signed a deal with Global Spectrum which is costing us dearly. Next they signed an expensive contract with owners of a private hockey team. Now they’re using $200,000 of our own money to push a “yes” vote to put Stave Lake under private contract for 30 years. With our city employees in control of operations, we have enjoyed decades of safe, reliable water. MFA borrowing rates can keep water public and return profits to the city. PPP Canada’s grant money is an unacceptable “gift” — a Trojan horse. I strongly oppose the use of Tradex for filthy sex shows.

I should be elected because:

I should be elected because: I believe great cities do not happen by accident. Great cities are created by deliberate acts of leaders who have a vision and a passion for future generations. I am such a man. Great cities happen with inclusive planning, not just accepting the status quo. We need to find common ground set our sights on the future, not be afraid to toss out old ways that don’t work. It is time for polarization and rhetoric to end; we need open honest inclusive dialogue to move forward together. My goal is not to run the city my goal is to lead a team intent on securing a bright future for decades to come. We live in one of the most beautiful places on earth and we have the potential to be one of the most livable cities in the world. Our time is now, let’s be remembered in history as those who dreamed not of what we are, but of how great we can become. A vote for Banman is a vote for a better future.

re-elect CINDY

SCHAFER For School Trustee

I should be elected because: We need a new approach to the way things are being run at city hall and I’m not a member of the “old boys club.” I have integrity and am determined to make Abbotsford an affordable city to live in – one that has compassion for all of its residents. I intend to publish a website to keep residents informed of ideas and initiatives within the city, as well as an up to date account of my expenses. Additionally, I signed the taxpayer pledge and will support a bylaw which would fine council members with a 15 per cent pay decrease if they increase property taxes above the rate of inflation without a referendum. This ensures that city hall will be reluctant to make decisions that will drastically increase your taxes without your permission. The council that I sit on will not be a council of closed door politics. It will be a council who appreciates the opportunity to serve the people of Abbotsford and genuinely listens to the needs of the people they represent.

I should be elected because: Abbotsford is my community! I was raised here, educated here, socialized here; it’s imbedded in my identity. I am a product of Abbotsford’s socio-economic culture and despite my age, or perhaps because of it, I have been able to motivate people to become involved in our local political scene – at the very least, there are hundreds of people out there who are paying attention to Abbotsford’s politics who wouldn’t have otherwise. I want to continue on my quest for getting people out to vote, to know what issues are at stake and to become involved in their own governance. This is the basis for a successful, functioning democracy. I bring with me a new generation of thinking, different problem-solving skills, fresh ideas about community solidarity and a renewed sense of optimism for our collective future. By running for mayor I am demonstrating the initiative and personal drive I have to be an effective leader, not just for my own generation, but all those who truly want a voice in city hall.

Cindy Schafer has been the chair of the Abbotsford Board of Education for the past four years and has demonstrated that she is a tireless community leader of public education, diligently overseeing and caring for the success of students and respecting the rightful role of parents. She is reliable, responsible, dedicated and informed.

The City of Abbotsford has made substantial progress across a wide spectrum of measures since 2008. We have attracted almost $125 million in senior government funding for a variety of initiatives. Crime is down dramatically; major infrastructure improvements have been made at two highway interchanges and the Abbotsford International Airport; Whatcom Road has been extended to McKee Road; homelessness is down by 50 per cent and new supportive housing projects have been launched with Harmony House, Christine Lamb House and Kinghaven. For a complete list of city achievements, please visit my website at www. abbotsfordmayor.com. I am seeking your support as we continue to build upon our successes of the past three years.

Key issues: Abbotsford’s future water supply, public safety, spending accountability I should be elected because: I love working with people and have made being a city councillor a full time commitment. I intend to remain accessible, accountable and available to discuss any ideas on making our city an even better place to live. Having served one term on council has given me experience from the council prospective and using my 35 years of public works knowledge to benefit all of Abbotsford. Being active in the community is very important to me and my family as giving to people is what builds community. Abbotsford has been my home for the last 37 years and this is what motivates me to work constantly toward improving our community. On November 19th, I would like to have your vote so I may continue to serve as councillor. Thanks for your support.

Key issues: Stave Lake water referendum; public safety; escalating property taxes; long term planning; AESC operating deficit I should be elected because: As a resident of Abbotsford for the past 58 years, I have a vested interest in our community. I believe that my 40 years in business success demonstrates the kind of proven leadership experience Abbotsford needs today, serving you, the citizens of Abbotsford. My commitment is that I will be forward thinking and fiscally responsible as I work with council colleagues to address the many challenges facing our city. In answer to the question why should people vote for me – I want to give back to the community that for 58 years has provided me with a safe home for my family, a rich diversity of friendships, and economic opportunities. I am committing myself to serve using my business experience and a long history of community involvement.

Key issues:

No to the P3; good financial management, restraint and discipline; Development Cost Charges (DCCs)

Regaining control of spending and reduce taxes; the Stave Lake water proposal (P3); long-term transportation solutions

I see the P3 referendum as the key issue

I should be elected because: I care about my city and have been actively engaged for seven years in the issues and actions of council as evidenced on www.jameswbreckenridge. ca. I have a background as a chartered accountant that gives me financial and business experience in financial and operational management, in planning, budgeting, restraint and discipline. I know that it is bad financial decision making to spend an extra $127 million dollars going with a P3 in order to earn a $65-million grant. I am prepared to do the work necessary to go with a public water project, even if it requires a return to council meeting every week as they used to. I have the skills to ensure a public water project is properly managed. I use the facilities of this city on a regular basis. People have no trouble finding me to comment about something I wrote, that the city has done, or that they are concerned about. Integrity. Experience. Knowledge. Curiosity. Creativity. Capable. Listening. Caring. Leadership.

NEW CON TENT

Now’s the time to plan your BC vacation! Nobody knows the best places to play and stay in British Columbia better than www.getawaybc.com • Accommodations • Activities • Attractions • Dining • Services • Shopping • Tours • Transportation

I should be elected because: As the next generation of conservative leadership, I am committed to lowering taxes for homes and businesses, generating growth for businesses so people can find quality jobs closer to home. Work to improve our city’s transportation needs such as looking at community rail and find ways to prevent and remove pay parking. Develop a plan that clearly defines the lines between our urban and rural areas so that our city can grow without conflict. Increase the funding for the Abbotsford police so they can continue to provide innovative solutions to our changing city needs. I believe we should partner with our neighbouring cities to find solutions to problems rather than isolating ourselves such as with the Stave Lake water project. We should vote No to the city’s current plan for P3 and find a better alternative together with Mission. I also take a strong stance on moral issues and will work to have the Taboo show banned from the Tradex and slot machines removed from Chances. Visit www.VoteChapman.ca for more.

I should be elected because: I have many years of experience in serving people, both in the private and public sector. In the private sector I have held positions from labourer to management, and in the public field as a pastor. I will hold the position of councillor as a service to the people of Abbotsford. My desire is to work with the people of Abbotsford to make our city a great city in which to live, raise a family and to retire in. I am a good listener and would welcome your input into the affairs related to my position on city council. Abbotsford is and will be what we make it: On November 19th you have the right and privilege to elect the leadership for this city: exercise that right!

Abbotsford is my hometown I have lived and worked in this community since 1968.

BOB FRIESEN

Contributor

Stave Lake is proposed as a new water source for Abbotsford.

Are you in favour of the City of Abbotsford developing a new water supply source at Stave Lake (consisting of a water intake in Stave Lake, a pump station, a water treatment plant and a water transmission line from the Stave Lake to the City of Abbotsford) to ensure that the current and long term water needs of the City of Abbotsford are met by: the City entering into a partnering agreement with a private sector partner that will design, build, partially finance and operate a water supply and distribution system from Stave Lake for up to thirty (30) years, incurring a maximum capital cost and liability to the City of TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY-ONE MILLION DOLLARS ($291,000,000) of which up to $61,000,000 will be paid for through a federal contribution; and Abbotsford City Council adopting Bylaw No. 2105-2011, “Stave Lake Water System Loan Authorization Bylaw, 2011” to authorize the borrowing by the City of the remaining TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY MILLION DOLLARS ($230,000,000), for up to thirty (30) years, for the capital cost of constructing the water supply and distribution system from Stave Lake?

Key issues: P3 Water Project and water bill rate increases; AESC and the Abbotsford Heat losses; crime reduction/policing issues I should be elected because: After fighting against the costs and poor management surrounding Plan A, I formed the Abbotsford Ratepayers Association and have spent the last five years working to protect the taxpayers of Abbotsford. That work is more important than ever as our city proposes the P3 Water Project which will result in more than a 40 per cent property tax increase and a $1-billion tax debt. I’m ready to fight for every penny of savings possible and that includes the public option, lowering the total cost by $140 million, and also working with our partner, the District of Mission, in order to have them re-commit to the $80 million worth of funding previously negotiated. We can lower the costs of this project and we can lower water rates. I understand the numbers and I’m ready to show city council how to do both. For city council to listen, you must put me at the table.

Your path to a better job starts here.

Increasing property taxes; expensive water system; ‘no-fun city’ for youth; urban sprawl; lack of planning for seniors I should be elected because: I (almost) haven’t missed a city council, police board or social development advisory committee meeting in five years. I’m chair or deputy chair of two other city advisory committees and I volunteer with Abbotsford Hospice, Restorative Justice, the church, The Reach, a flying club, a self-defence club, airshow and the three major business organizations. I am well informed about the issues faced by our police officers, our social workers, our city planners and our business community. I think that we can build a “sustainable community” by being fiscal conservatives while having some liberal social tendencies and rounding that off with responsible environmentalism. The “old school thinking” at city hall isn’t working! I will push to put the lid on annual tax increases, get a handle on property crime, create density in our urban core and put the brakes on urban sprawl. We don’t need a half-billion dollar water project but we do need to make Abbotsford attractive to young people so they quit leaving for the big city. We need jobs, livability and nature.

Key issues:

1) The provision of a secure and stable water supply for our growing city 2) A cautious approach to taxing and budgeting with alternative funding sources pursued with the province 3) Continued strong support for our hard-working police department to fulfill their goal of making “Abbotsford the safest city in British Columbia.”

P3 (water); fair taxes; reduction to crime and poverty (homelessness); environment.

I should be elected because: Voters can trust me to work hard, listen well, and make the tough decisions necessary to ensure we are planning and building a great community. It has been a privilege to serve on council and I have considered each issue mindful of its impact on the quality of life of the overall city. I will continue to be frugal and conservative with regard to taxes and never lose sight of the importance of “lean government.” Abbotsford is the finest community in Canada and I will do everything in my power to secure this status. Accountability is at the heart of democracy and I have taken my role as a councillor very seriously; voters can have confidence that I will represent them based on principles and sound judgment.

I should be elected because: No to the P3 (water). Our property taxes are very high compared to other municipalities. Crime and public safety is very important. Metro Vancouver garbage incineration proposal is a big concern to our airshed.

Key issues: Security/policing and fire, water – P3, taxes

I should be elected because: I should be elected because my primary concern is to support the community safety and policing initiatives within the City of Abbotsford. I also support the new fire hall up on Blueridge, and cultural diversity within the City of Abbotsford. I listen to the concerns of our citizens and continue to work hard on their behalf. I am a member of the Dyking and Drainage Committee, Fraser Valley Regional District, GVRD Board, Fraser Valley Regional Hospital Board, and a member of the Rotary Club. I am a promoter of high standards within agriculture and light industries. My service over the past 15 years on council affords me the ability to understand the needs and concerns of local residents. I would like to continue to support the economic and social fabric of the City of Abbotsford by promoting the Abbotsford International Airport, the Abbotsford Multicultural Festival, Agrifair, Canada Day Celebrations, Fraser Valley University and local Sporting Associations. I have lived, worked and played in Abbotsford for more than 45 years. I love Abbotsford and call it “My Home!”

Key issues:

Rising costs of taxation due to overspending; sustainable planning/ protection of farmland, parks, rural areas

Essential services at an affordable price; long-term water security; long-term ‘capacity building’ that anticipates growth I should be elected because: I have demonstrated an aptitude for making tough decisions, regardless of personal feelings; decisions that reflect the best interests of the wider community. Apart from a few years, Abbotsford has been my life-long home, giving me a good sense of our community’s history – where we’ve come from and the future potential of this community. I understand the basis of Abbotsford’s economic prosperity – a strong, diverse, and thriving agricultural industry; an airport poised to become a significant economic engine; a university bursting at the seams due to its proven level of excellence; advantageous geographical position in terms of transportation, tourism, and industrial/commercial development; and a rich cultural diversity. With future growth as a backdrop, agricultural land and green space must be preserved as a legacy for future generations – specifically, McKee Peak and Sumas Mtn. with its old-growth forest. The Stave Lake water project is only one level of the ‘capacity building’ required in the years ahead to ensure that sustainability remains integral to all our future planning.

Taxation at all levels of government as well as expenditures by both elected and non-elected (bureaucrats) officials in the form of salary, pensions and expenses related to travel and office(s); P3 water referendum; turning the AESC into minimally a net sum zero financial asset while remembering that its economic impact has been measured at an annual return to the Abbotsford economy of $24 million

P3 water supply; accountability on council; public transit; ALR protection I should be elected because: As a close observer of Council for the past six years I have used every opportunity to provide input and suggestions. I believe that I can offer policies that will use existing resources better for a more affordable community. I have been paying close attention to our drinking water issue since early 2009 and have spent between 20 and 30 hours a week since early March trying to stop the P3 water scheme. A major problem for Abbotsford is the lack of transparency and accountability of Council. Too many expensive / risky decisions are made in closed meetings without consultation with the community i.e. the Global Spectrum and AHL Heat contracts costing the taxpayers over $6 million in the past two years. Nonessential expenditures have resulted in taxes and fees making Abbotsford less and less affordable for many residents. While Council has not supported agriculture worth $1.8 billion /year 11,000 jobs I have continually worked to preserve farmland for the local economy, jobs and food security. I strongly disagree with gravel mining on prime farmland.

P3 water, Metro Vancouver’s plans to build garbage incinerators, crime, taxes I should be elected because: I bring a unique skill set and perspective due to my international training and research as a Fellow of Leadership for Environment and Development International. It is important to constantly keep in mind the economic, environmental and social implications of each decision. I have a demonstrated strong work ethic. I believe strongly that government should not just be about what we do, but also how we behave, conducting ourselves with honour, integrity, respect and compassion. There are many complex issues facing our growing city requiring a great deal of time to properly research in order to ensure long-term sustainability. It is extremely important to investigate the risks as well as we do the benefits of a particular initiative in order to make good decisions. I have consistently committed myself to taking the extra time to research to the best of my ability and will continue to do so. For more detailed information on my position on particular issues or to contact me, please see my website at: www.patriciaross-whatmatters.com.

I should be elected because: Abbotsford has had a pro-development council for decades, too much is done in-camera in the back room, the OCP gets changed constantly, and too much sprawl has been allowed. All future development has to be well planned and sustainable. I would do my best to act in the interests of the taxpaying public and the business community. I would work hard to find some solutions for issues like youth crime, homelessness, cohesive transit, farmland protection, budgeting and borrowing. Please know your issues this election, don’t just vote for the guy with the most signs. Public water, not for profit.

I should be elected because: I am putting my name up for the office of city councillor for these reasons ... I believe in being a public servant and those words together are extremely powerful ... they mean that if you are going to put your hand up and offer yourself to the office you need to embrace the interpretive words ... you are purposed to serve the public not abuse nor use but rather serve. To do one’s best in service, to review, study and dialogue prior to making decisions on behalf of those who supported you and at the end of it remaining true to your core values.

Key issues:

Taxation/restraint; controlled spending future planning; ramifications of bylaws not considered; provision of long-term water supply; change ‘institutional thinking’ to ‘big picture’

Accountable spending; rising taxes; public safety; P3 referendum, parks and rec. I should be elected because:

Of course the P3 water is the main one, but at the same time property taxes and crime are not any less of a concern to our citizens.

P3 water; regular transit; AESC and the Heat; low-income housing

Having lived and worked in a family business in Abbotsford for 20 years and raising my kids here. I have seen the city grow from a sleepy community into a thriving multicultural center. I see immense potential afforded by locations, resources and population. I also believe there are some issues affecting our citizens. I am honest, friendly, positive and transparent. I would like to work hard to make our children’s future safe. I want to be your voice. Let your voice be heard. Email electdaljitsidhu@gmail.com.

I should be elected because: I am offering my services on the basis of my track record. Experiences I gained while serving on various boards such as the police board, board of governor at UFV, Chamber Board of Directors, and the Community of Character are a few examples that have given me the insight to serve better. Since emigrating from India almost 40 years ago, I made a personal commitment to contribute and enhance both the community of the Fraser Valley. I chose to settle my family in Abbotsford to develop my businesses, to raise my children and to contribute economically and socially to the province. I’ve been married 37 years and have three children. Through various fundraising and volunteer roles, I’ve spent the past 30 years getting to know the community’s needs and served the community on numerous boards and committees.

Taxes & fees; public safety; water; deficits at AESC; affordable housing I should be elected because: I am an experienced, hard-working councillor. I’ve served on too many council committees to list here but would like to highlight a few recent successes in which I was involved; (1) the award winning Harmony affordable housing project; (2) the Discovery Trail project, and, (3) my leadership of the successful fight for university status for UFV. I am a Rotarian, a past chair of Abbotsford Hospice and served for 24 years as a school trustee/board chair. I support the P3 water referendum because we need a new source of water by 2016 if we are to continue enjoying growth, employment opportunities, prosperity and our lifestyle. External professional engineers/accountants believe the P3 approach to be the most efficient and lowest cost model, and this is validated by the federal government who are giving us up to $65.7 million. I support continued emphasis on tough policing. I propose that the AE&SC management structure report to a volunteer board of experienced business people at arms-length from council, similar to the profitable Airport Authority and Tradex.

I should be elected because: I have lived in Abbotsford for 43 years, am a veteran communications specialist in provincial politics and a former editor and publisher of a group of newspapers. I know business and I know government. I also know who to talk to, and how to talk to them. I am a common sense advocate who cares passionately about the future of our city, and the importance of keeping it growing to expand the tax base and create employment opportunities. As a columnist, I have for decades challenged council on decisions that didn’t make sense, on ‘feel-good’ spending, on bylaws where the long-term ramifications and impacts were not clearly understood. I have serious concerns with planning for the future and that development continues to be linear – from Mt. Lehman Rd. to Costco. I have a strong, sensible, outspoken personality that will ensure all decisions, particularly on budgeting and taxation, are made in the best interest of all taxpayers; not adopted because they ‘seem like a good idea’ at the time.

I should be elected because: I represent the average citizen who lives in Abbotsford, uses transit, has children (adult student attending UFV), understand the issues facing everyone, and am in touch as a person who knows how to make ends meet with little/low income. I talk to people every day who tell me that they can’t understand where the council is coming from and wants them out. They want people who listen to them as citizens concerned with the issues facing them. Council needs to listen more, have public consultations and dialogues regularly and stop spending money recklessly. Raising taxes isn’t the only way to deal with rising costs, but we need to examine all other ways before that is an option. I chose not to sign the Canadian Taxpayers Pledge because I am concerned that if we take out services paid by property taxes, and have fee for services like garbage pick-up and water, then the low income taxpayer, i.e. seniors on a fixed income, will be left paying more money than if we had left it as is. I believe I represent all taxpayers, not just a few. I am an honest person that will work hard for the taxpayer and listen to all.

Key issues: Water referendum;crime reduction; sustainable development; trust in city hall I should be elected because: I’ve lived, worked, and played in Abbotsford for over 20 years. I am a business owner, a wife, and a mother. I’ve run my own bookkeeping company for 12 years. Working with all types of small businesses has given us the ability to aid our clients in setting priorities. These days both households and businesses need to make their money stretch. There’s always more than one approach to a problem. I would approach the council table the same way. We need more quality jobs here, better transportation to and from those jobs, and places for the residents to have fun after work. I am passionate about creating an Abbotsford that is a place where all the residents can find places to live, work, and play. I am also passionate about people being treated fairly and with respect. Abbotsford needs strong, independent voices at the council table – people that can look at needs from a different perspective. I can be that voice for you.

Expand choices in education for students from diverse needs and backgrounds; ensure parents are informed I should be elected because:

Education funding, how it is distributed; and our teachers, do we value them as we should and how can we make it better for all concerned. Do we value the parental input and to what extent?

Moving into 21st century learning – Individualized learning plans and moving beyond the classroom; early assessment; increase overall literacy – our overall numbers in literacy and numeracy are declining; fiscal responsibility – balancing funding and a fair funding formula from the ministry of education is needed.

Literacy and research skills need to be maintained and improved by proving proper resources and staff in libraries and in classes.

Reconnect with students and parents, open a dialogue, anti-bullying programs, anti-gang initiatives, focus on the learners and their families, support choice programs.

I regard Aeriol as a patient and caring listener, astute problem-solver, and diligent and tireless advocate. She is an avid reader who values life-long learning. Her passion for learning is evidenced in her sincere desire to encourage young people to read so they broaden their perceptions and competently express themselves. I am confident that she will excel and make a valuable contribution to your board as a school trustee. KAREN EHRENHOLZ Founder Chocolate Lily Book Awards; provincial literacy program In the educational arena Aeriol has battled for better curriculums, greater parental input, and vigilant accountability of school administrators. She has taught critical thinking courses and employment preparation workshops to teens. Her strongest quality can only be described as aggressive compassion for youthat-risk in that she not only understands them well, but knows how to meet their needs and gather significant moral support for them from the community. MARILYN SCHROEDER B.Ed

I should be elected because: I believe I can contribute some fresh ideas, I believe I can think outside the box, it’s time for a change. I don’t like hidden agendas. There is not enough public debate in trustee meetings, nor is there a wide enough range of views represented on the current board. I would like to see our board openly challenge the government on policy. I want the issues of class composition and size to be addressed. I want to see the board being visible in the schools, after all the decisions being made directly affect the schools. I want parents to have a voice before decisions are made regarding their children. I believe I can make a difference.

I should be elected because: I have six years of experience as a trustee and have a record of speaking up and speaking out for the most vulnerable. I am student driven rather than agenda driven and can speak for the entire community and not just a special interest group. As we move into 21st Century Learning, my passion is to repair an antiquated system by delivering individualized student learning, tailored to their entire life not just their school life. As I believe in fiscal responsibility, we need to ensure that every dollar put into the classroom benefits the student. I will speak for a new direction, one which truly puts students first. My desire is to give students the passion they need to pursue their purpose for life. I have a record of being accountable, accessible and work in collaboration for the benefit of all.

I should be elected because: I have been living in Abbotsford for past 20 years. This is my home and my community, where my family and I work, go to school, play and give back to the community by volunteering. I have been a PAC executive member and volunteer at almost all schools events for last 10 years. For last 6 years, I have been a cross guard and supervisor Monday to Friday morning. I also volunteer with Abbotsford Food Bank, Friday Nite Basketball, Gladwin Language Centre, 2010 Olympics, and Salvation Army. I have been at the Fraser Valley Regional Library for last 17 years. I have also worked in the Abbotsford School District as a library technician and an ESL assistant for several years. I will advocate providing: proper resources and staff for school libraries and in classes; equal educational opportunities; safe, secure and friendly environment to keep students away from drugs, gangs and violence.

I should be elected because: I have been working with and for children for over 20 years. Having children myself in all 3 levels of the school system - elementary, middle, and high school, I decided to step up and do my part to make Abbotsford’s school system one parents and children can be proud of. We need to reconnect with the students and parents to see what their needs are, in order to create the best learning environment for all students; one focused on the learners and their families. My priorities will be pro-active anti-bullying programs, anti-gang initiatives, reconnecting with the community by opening a dialogue with parents and students alike, and supporting choice programs such as the traditional schools, french immersion and other language programs, athletics and the fine arts. If elected, I will do my very best, as I use my passion for children to serve the students of the Abbotsford School District!

H. Dave Derkson Believes in reducing government spending, not in raising your taxes.

Working more collaboratively and creatively with education stakeholders, the city and support agencies

Follow through with previous initiatives and stakeholder involvement in the implementation of 21st century learning I should be elected because:

Relevance of program options and delivery to students; collaboration between homes and schools

I should be elected because:

Working with limited fiscal resources; meeting needs of diverse student population I should be elected because:

I should be elected because:

My work with children, youth and families in our schools and community over the last 30 years has prepared me for taking on this leadership role. I currently serve as a Commissioner on the Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission and more and more realize that creative solutions are needed to help resolve and build joint use agreements between the School District and City of Abbotsford. Leadership is about moving forward. The School District is not an island and all of the facilities are jointly owned by taxpayers. Finding ways to improve and better utilize our schools outside of school hours will strengthen neighbourhoods and help us develop our ‘people’ assets. Tapping into resources like our Seniors, developing more multi disciplinary approaches with social service agencies and community groups will ultimately help support our families and children.

With a background in teaching as well as having been a school trustee, I have gained significant insights into the challenges of teaching and meeting parental or corporate expectations as well as Ministry of Education legislation and regulation. In addition to having been a community newspaper reporter/ editor and community television producer/host and communications consultant specializing in education (in all three roles), I have a strong background in political party communications and election campaign management and am confident that this dual-track background can assist Abbotsford Board of Education in obtaining more equitable funding to meet the needs of its diverse student population and its teachers as well as develop stronger communication links with the community...all leading to improved student achievement.

You should vote for me because of my track record over the past six years serving as your Trustee, my leadership reflects honesty and integrity, my commitment to family and community values, my informed decision making. The implementation of the board’s new strategic plan. This will propel our district into the 21st century. Twenty First Century Learning is the vision for public education of our provincial government which requires our students to have unique skills for the new global economy. The Abbotsford Board of Education is proactive by evaluating where we are and where we need to be by consulting parents, students, teachers and the public in our family of schools, starting with the west side schools. I want to ensure that the board of education will proceed with evaluating the schools in the city center and then the schools in the east side of our city.

I am passionately committed to the public education system in Abbotsford. The students we serve are our future leaders. My last 10 years of service to this school district have been focused around connecting our families and schools, building relationships to better understand and serve the needs of our students, and advocating for a consultative process in decision making. I have committed the time and built trust with our education partner groups. The creativity, energy and promise our students show motivates me to serve them whole-heartedly. I am a firm believer that student success is dependent upon the quality of care and instruction we are providing, not the amount of money we have. Student engagement is dependent on our ability to keep up with what we are competing with; we need to be innovative and flexible while holding on to tried and true best practices.

Abbotsford’s classrooms are becoming increasingly diverse in the learning needs of students. It is critical that we support these diverse needs by responsibly directing as many resources as possible to the classroom. Our challenge is to continue to explore ways in which all learners can be successful. Education must be a partnership between educators, students, parents and the community. All partners must be listened to. Students need to feel safe and valued. We must prepare students to thrive in a rapidly changing, complex world.

I should be elected because:

I have 33 years of experience as an educator and as an educational leader. I have a doctorate in educational leadership and I know our clients; parents and students. I will use my experience to collaboratively empower teachers, parents, and the community to provide a quality education for all learners. I will be responsible to the taxpayer, to parents, to teachers, and most importantly to students. I will base my decisions on what is ‘best for students’.

We need to engage our community and businesses as we move forward with the challenges of being more innovative and creative in dealing with the unique needs of today’s learners. We need to provide our students with exposure to potential job opportunities and work experience. We need to build on a foundation of the basics. I should be elected because:

I feel that our senior educational team needs more discretion in decisionmaking, rather than the micro-managing from some trustees that can hinder creative and courageous leadership.

Being fiscally responsible; innovation to save money; innovation to keep students engaged; parents’ voices being heard; security

The #1 issue facing SD34 schools is shifting demographics and the growing need to provide differentiated educational supports and opportunities to students for fair and equitable access.

I should be elected because:

I should be elected because:

I should be elected because:

I know how to listen and I know how to lead. I have had leadership roles in successful organizations my whole professional career, whether in business, post-secondary education, or consulting. The district has improved dramatically in my 24 years on the board, but has ceased to do so in this past term. In addition, listening has been in short supply recently among some trustees, leaving many parents wondering if they have a voice on important issues. Trustees must know their proper role in governing, not administrating, and they must learn to listen empathetically. I believe that my track record as a trustee, and the endorsements recorded on my website, show that I have strengths in these key areas of listening and leading. For more information, please see: http://sutherlandfortrustee.ca/

I will give parents a voice and be responsible to tax payers. I have 3 children as well, 2 of which will be entering the public school system over the next 3 years. I want to make sure that parents are listened to, they are the ones that know what’s best for their own children. I will put children first in all my decisions and will work with teachers and administrators to ensure that the students are getting the best education possible. I am not agenda driven, I just want to help Abbotsford reach heights not seen in the past.

I should be re-elected to Abbotsford’s Board of Education because I am reliable and hardworking and always maintain the interest of all our students in any of my decisions. I understand the unique programs and broader needs of our community and the historical shift in funding and demographics which constantly support the need for sound fiscal management with a view to long term sustainability of programs. Supporting the unique needs of our learners is not a once a year decision to happen in isolation of past or future factors - it is about maintaining a sound and accessible educational system for our community. I believe in choice in education, parental and community consultation, excellence in education, and that parents are the child’s first and best educator and advocate.

Why should you be elected? I have been chair of the Abbotsford Board of Education for the past four years and believe I have demonstrated my commitment and dedication to work hard as a community representative and leader. I am responsible, reliable and informed. I exercise common sense and consider the needs of all students in my decision making. I value the partnerships with stakeholders, parents and community members. I strive for wisdom and integrity in my decision making. I believe in the importance of being a fiscally accountable school district, striving for high educational achievement with personalized instruction to ensure success for all students. I remain passionate about children, their education and their future.

I understand that life is often busy. I coordinate schedules with my wife, an RN, and balance my satisfying and rewarding real estate career with raising our three school-aged daughters and enjoying involvement in our church. I am honoured that so many individuals and families have included me in their busy lives and chosen me to guide them through the intricate process of buying or selling properties.

I am a self-confessed “car guy” and have been racing, restoring, and appreciating all kinds of vehicles since the day I brought home my driver’s license. Over the years I noticed how difficult it can be to find the right property for “toys”, from cars to boats to recreational vehicles. I decided to dedicate part of my business to specializing in “Real Estate for Car Guys” and everyone looking for unique properties, garages and shops in the Fraser Valley.

If you are looking at investing in your first home, expanding your living space or downsizing, now is the time to do it!

Born and raised in Surrey, I moved to Abbotsford in 1985 and grew to love the community. My roots and commitments in the Fraser Valley became even stronger when I married Ingrid and we started a family. With over 20 years experience in sales and marketing, my next challenge was entering real estate. This career plunge, now several years ago, has brought me growth, relationships, and the career satisfaction of a job well done beyond my dreams. My relationships with my clients are of the utmost importance to me. I am committed to providing the care, understanding, service, and attention they deserve. Accountability, availability, opportunity, and results for my clients are the core of my business.

October, going from 10,096 in September to 10,005. “The good news for sellers is that although inventory is high, it’s not near record highs and sales remain steady,” said Sidhu. “This is why the overall benchmark price for residential properties has remained unchanged for six months.” The benchmark price (the price of homes with characteristics typical to that area) of a single family detached home in the Fraser Valley in October was $530,335, an increase of 4.9 per cent compared to $505,759 in October 2010 and on par with the price in September. For townhouses, the benchmark price in October was $325,482, an increase of 2 per cent compared to the same month last year when it was $319,058 and down 0.6 per cent compared to September. The benchmark price of apartments in October was $243,725, an increase of 1.3 per cent compared to October 2010 and on par with the price in September. Sidhu says the average of 45 days to sell a single family detached home has been constant for three months. In October, townhomes took on average 55 days to sell and apartments 75 days.

Below average home sales combined with a regular influx of new listings continues to give buyers the upper hand in many Fraser Valley communities. “There is action when the property is competitively priced,” said the president of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, Sukh Sidhu, “It is not a quiet market. Priced-right properties are selling thanks to the continuation of low interest rates.” Sidhu adds. “What’s happening is that there is a large amount of inventory available in the Fraser Valley, in particular with condos and townhomes, and that’s what’s holding prices in check.” The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,139 sales in October on its Multiple Listing Service, an increase of 12 per cent compared to the 1,014 sales during the same month last year and a decrease of two per cent compared to 1,165 sales in September. In terms of listings, the board posted 2,511 new properties in October, an increase of 18 per cent compared to October of last year and a decrease of five per cent compared to September. The number of active listings in the Fraser Valley dipped in

Back in August, Jeremy Lieuwen was asked how he thought his Mennonite Educational Institute boys volleyball team would fare in the fall. Lieuwen, at the time, downplayed the Eagles’ chances, noting that he was one of a handful of seniors on an otherwise-youthful roster. Fast forward three months, and the MEI boys are where they always seem to be – in position to contend for a B.C. title. They’ve been ranked anywhere between first and fifth in the provincial AA poll – they were fifth as of press deadline – as they work to extend a one of the more remarkable active dynasties in B.C. high school sports. The Eagles have medaled at AA provincials each of the past nine years, winning seven golds and two bronzes during that span.

DAN KINVIG

Abbotsford News

MEI Eagles libero Angelo Alvarado works on his passing during a recent practice. Lieuwen, the Eagles’ captain, admits he was initially surprised at his team’s solid start to the season. “A lot of people said it would be a weaker year for us, but it’s been contrary to that,” he said. “The young guys have been stepping up, improving a lot. Even the games we’ve lost, we’ve been right there. We have a great shot at winning again this

year, and it’s really exciting to see.” The 2010 Eagles sent stars like Tyler Koslowsky (Trinity Western) and Connor Nickel (Columbia Bible College) on to the postsecondary ranks, but MEI’s thriving middle school and junior programs have delivered another crop of top athletes to the senior squad. Returnees Lieuwen

(left side), Zach Funk (right side) and Angelo Alvarado (libero) have been joined by four new faces in the starting lineup. Jordan Schmidt and Caleb Penner are the duo in the middle, and Grade 11 setter Caleb Conrad runs the offence. Ben Lieuwen, Jeremy’s younger brother, is a Grade 10 phenom who starts at the other left side spot. The Eagles proved their mettle during league play last month, as they came within a whisker of beating current AA No. 1 Langley Christian, falling 15-12 in the fifth set. Eagles head coach Jeff Stel attributed the program’s staying power to MEI’s deep roster of coaches at the younger age groups. “Throughout the school, we have awesome coaches who instill the love of the sport in the kids,” Stel noted. “The skill development of the kids is better every year.”

Dad was an active member of AA, Alano Club, Salvation Army, UFCW, but his true loves were his bikes and his place â&#x20AC;&#x153;upcountryâ&#x20AC;? in Coalmont. Dad made many friends, and met many people in his lifetime, and will be greatly missed (especially in his favourite restaurants). All that knew and loved him are welcome to come and share stories and pictures at his celebration of life. The family would like to thank all of the many staff at MMH, ARHCC, RCH, and Valhaven for their help caring for dad.
