A new poll shows B.C. drivers overwhelmingly believe talking or texting behind the wheel on a mobile phone is extremely dangerous. Yet 16 per cent admit talking recently on a handheld phone and nine per cent admit they texted or emailed while driving. The Ipsos Reid survey conducted for ICBC found 87 per cent of respondents believe texting or emailing while driving is one of the riskiest behaviours on the road and 50 per cent believe talking on a handheld phone is as risky as drunk driving. The results come after RCMP said they ticketed Continued on A7

Tina Stewart, executive director of the ADBA, shares a toast with Ryoichi Terashita, vice-mayor of Fukagawa, Abbotsford’s Japanese sister city, at the Roasted Grape Tasting Bar, which will open downtown on Friday.
A delegation from Abbotsford’s Japanese sister city, Fukagawa, visits about every two years, and on this occasion, the visitors are interested in the urban renewal underway in the city’s historic downtown. Abbotsford Downtown Business Association president Mitch Miller and executive director Tina Stewart led the delegation on a tour of the area Tuesday afternoon, as the Japanese politicians are wrestling with similar issues in Fukagawa’s business district. “They want to see some of the historic buildings we’ve revitalized,” said Stewart, “so we’re going to show them old buildings that aren’t old anymore.” Fukagawa is a city of approximately 25,000 surrounded by rice fields and apple and cherry orchards, and known for its progressive agriculture industry.

Teachers have not yet been informed what form further job action could take, but meetings will be held at the ADTA hall on Sept. 6 and 7
at 4 p.m. to provide them with information about the first phase. Meanwhile, Godden said the district will make “every effort ... to maintain respectful, professional re-

favour of job action to back their objectives, which relate to teaching conditions, salary and benefits, and local bargaining rights. The BCTF’s demands include pay parity with other provinces, doubling the provision for bereavement leave to 10 days on the death of any friend or relative, and 26 weeks off each year as a fully paid leave to provide compassionate care to any person. The BCSPEA has said the demands would amount to an additional $2.2 billion each year. The issues are being decided on a provincial level, with more specific local matters to be determined later. As more information becomes available, it will be posted on the websites for the school district (sd34.bc.ca), the BCTF (bctf.ca) and the ADTA (bctf.ca/ local 34/)
Police warn of two fraudsters Separate scams focused primarily on seniors
Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News
One man has a hard-luck story about his vehicle, while the other poses as a handyman looking to be paid for completed work. Neither is telling the truth, and the Abbotsford Police Department is warning the public that the two fraudsters – both in their 40s – are operating in the city, targeting mainly seniors. Const. Ian MacDonald said police have not been successful in having charges laid against either culprit, who are not linked to one another. “Our belief is that these incidents certainly have a lot of elements similar to fraud ... but it isn’t enough to go with for a criminal prosecution with any likely possibility of conviction,” he said.
One man has been active in Abbotsford church as they do. for about two years, and police have In some instances, he has sat down in received 21 complaints about him so far people’s vehicles or walked into their in 2011, MacDonald said. homes.

MacDonald said he usually asks for about $250 for vague things such as cleaning the ducts or adjusting the alarm system – services that are difficult to confirm immediately with a building manager or strata council. The man becomes belligerent when questioned about his claims. Police have identified him and discovered he is from out of the province and has a history of assault, theft, break-ins, and fraud. He is described as about 5’ 7”, about 200 pounds with a stocky build, and balding. Police would like people to report any interactions they have with either man, although MacDonald said the only option they have for retrieving money they may have lost is to sue the culprits in civil court.

â€“ to pass the virus back and forth with wild salmon. She also confirmed the lethal signature has also been found in sockeye from Haida Gwaii, far from the
fish farms, as well as sockeye from rivers on the west side of Vancouver Island, which donâ€™t migrate through Johnstone Strait. Her group has done little research so far on
northern stocks that return to the Skeena or Nass rivers. Miller did stress the lethal markers were not found in the thriving Harrison Lake sockeye â€“ which spend less time in fresh
water and migrate around the west coast of Vancouver Island, not past the Johnstone Strait fish farms. â€œHarrison is the one stock on the Fraser River that is increasing in productivity,â€?
Young generation tied to devices From A1
2,043 Lower Mainland drivers over a six-week period this summer â€“ nearly twice as many as the 1,197 tickets for $167 issued in the same period in 2010. RCMP Insp. Norm Gaumont said the ticket blitz showed lots of people continue to text or talk on their phones â€“ even 18 months after B.C. brought in its distracted driving law. â€œItâ€™s a new phenomenon thatâ€™s come upon us â€“ a young generation that are really tied to their devices and they canâ€™t let them go,â€? he said. Distracted or inattentive driving is the number one cause of 45 per cent of fatal crashes in the Lower Mainland, Gaumont said, adding itâ€™s the worst rate of any region in the province. More than half of drivers surveyed in the Ipsos poll reported seeing other drivers break the ban on handheld device use several times a day.
The top excuses for using a hand-held phone while driving? Forty-two per cent said it was a very short call or they use the speaker function. Others said they pulled over after answering (37 per cent) or they were stopped at a red light (29 per cent). Still others said they donâ€™t have a hands-free system or that â€œitâ€™s simply a force of habit.â€? â€œMany people donâ€™t realize that itâ€™s also illegal to take a call or text while waiting in trafďŹ c or stopped for a red light,â€? said Fiona Temple, ICBCâ€™s director of road safety. â€œYou lose 50 per cent of whatâ€™s going on around you when youâ€™re talking or texting on a hand-held device. This makes you four times more likely to get in a crash.â€? For info on distracted driving penalties and tips on safe use of cellphones, see www.drivecellsafe.ca.
she said. The judicial inquiry led by retired Judge Bruce Cohen was called by the federal government after less than 1.5 million sockeye returned in 2009, far fewer than the more than 10 million expected.

ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Thursday, September 1, 2011
Living in the real world Before taking the B.C. Teachers’ Federation to task for its stratospheric contract demands, the following should be acknowledged. The value and importance of teachers is indisputable. The great majority are passionate educators, dedicated to turning out well-balanced young people ready to face the challenges before them. Now enter the BCTF bargaining position, and reality rapidly fades. Among the demands currently on the table are wage increases – undeﬁned as yet, but ostensibly on par with the highest paid teachers in the country, which could translate into as much as 20 per cent salary hikes. Add to that more beneﬁts, including doubling the provision for bereavement leave to 10 days on the death of any friend or relative, and 26 weeks off each year as a fully paid leave to provide compassionate care to any person. The government has said the demands would amount to an additional $2.2 billion each year.
In 2006, teachers endorsed a ﬁve-year agreement, which included a rich 16 per cent wage hike. Things were much different then. The global economy hadn’t tanked. It was three years before the B.C. government imposed a zero wage increase mandate on the public service. The province wasn’t running a $45-billion debt. It wasn’t trying to balance the budget after a string of deﬁcits. And taxpayers hadn’t just voted down the HST, incurring a return to the PST that will see a $1.6-billion repayment to Ottawa, and some $3 billion in additional revenue lost in the next few years. In short, this province is in no ﬁscal position to entertain the BCTF’s fantasies. That’s the real world, and it’s time the BCTF lived in it. Address the issue that impacts students the most – classroom size and composition. That might even garner public support.
‘People’s victory’ means pain ahead Tom
B.C. Views NDP leader Adrian Dix couldn’t contain his glee at the result of the harmonized sales tax referendum. He seemed positively giddy that the provincial budget will forgo $3 billion in revenue over the next few years, and clearly relishes the prospect of getting back to the legislature in October to resume his demands for more spending in every ministry of the B.C. government. He can start soon, standing in passionate solidarity with B.C.’s 40,000 public school teachers as they strike to press their demands for huge increases in salary and beneﬁts that already exceed what most private sector workers will ever see. Bill Vander Zalm was thrilled too, beaming that famous smile as he climbed in his long black Mercedes to resume his comfortable retirement. He never
expected to be able to leave the province in a mess one more time, but fate has been kind to him. He probably still believes he has helped the poor, as he claimed in his nonsensical rants against the HST. This is the “people’s victory” that Dix crowed about. B.C. and the rest of the country are entering a perilous time where retired people outnumber the young, and pension plans – private and public – grow increasingly fragile. And in classic baby-boomer style, our political response is self-centred and unrealistic. An efﬁcient tax system that ends the advantage given to services over goods, while raising revenue to lift up the poorest people, is now a dirty word. Any kind of meaningful tax reform will be politically radioactive for years to come. Resource industries, the movie business and other private sector job generators can now plan for a signiﬁcant B.C. disadvantage in 2013. Ontario can celebrate. Meanwhile, demand for government services to take care of the great grey blob that is my generation can only soar. It’s not just old people outnumbering
the young. I mentioned a while back that Canada has already passed another signiﬁcant milestone. Statistics Canada reported in May on the people fortunate enough to have employer-supported pension plans in addition to government pension. And it turns out that 2010 was the
Vander Zalm never expected to be able to leave the province in a mess one more time, but fate has been kind to him. ﬁrst year in the country’s history where more public sector workers enjoyed this beneﬁt than private sector workers. Author Mark Steyn talks about this problem in relation to the troubles in Europe. He refers to the “Government Party,” which is the ever-growing public sector, and the “Dependency Party,” which is everyone on pensions and welfare. When those two “parties” constitute a majority, they can force the govern-
ment to satisfy their demands without regard to economic reality. This is what has happened in Greece. It is very close to happening in other European countries, and today B.C. is a step closer to it. When the verdict came in on the HST referendum, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon talked about going around to consult the public on how to reinstate the provincial sales tax. He vowed that B.C. will somehow still balance its budget in two years, and seemed to leave the door open to some minor modiﬁcations of the sales tax system. Premier Christy Clark quickly shut that door. It would be “disrespectful” to do anything other than bring back the post-war PST in all its rustic beauty, with the little boutique exemptions like bicycles and Toyota Priuses that have been attached by politicians over the years. Self-employed business people can now look forward to collecting and remitting two separate taxes again. There will be a cost to this “people’s victory.” It will involve reducing public services, raising taxes or both. tﬂetcher@blackpress.ca twitter.com/ tomﬂetcherbc</I>

Reluctant enforcement I enjoyed Kevin Mills’ promotional piece on bylaw enforcement. Interesting stats from Gord Ferguson, nice profile of Jessica Harknett, but I honestly don’t believe this article reflects reality or the typical experience
that an Abbotsford taxpayer has with this city’s bylaw enforcement department. I’ve lived in Abbotsford for nine years and can confidently say that the City of Abbotsford’s bylaw enforcement department, as di-
Confusing ballot I solely blame the cancellation of the HST on the confusing ballot. Who ever uses the word “extinguish” on a ballot. You can walk down any street in Abbotsford and ask anyone walking there what the word “Extinguish” means and more that 50 per cent will tell you they don’t have a clue. The ballot should have been simply, if you want to keep the HST check here and if you want to cancel it check here. The “yes and no” wording also helped confuse the issue. All I have to say is “don’t blame me.” I voted no. Larry Harris
rected by mayor and council, has a long history of reluctance for enforcing current bylaws or creating more progressive bylaws that address the needs of a modern municipality. (Want to see archaic? Check out Abbotsford’s animal control bylaw and have a good laugh. It assumes we all still live on farms and pretends cats don’t exist.) Abbotsford’s mayor and council has long expected and would prefer that neighbours simply “work things out on their own.” You know, love, peace, tolerate and endure! Can our mayor and council really be
that naive? We pay a lot of taxes here in Abbotsford and have the right to expect progressive bylaws combined with effective educational campaigns on responsible home, property and pet ownership. We also have the right to expect hasslefree bylaw enforcement when some residents need more encouragement to comply with good neighbour practices. Bylaw enforcement officer Jessica Harknett stated, “Neighbours don’t talk to each other anymore,” and I believe I know why.

ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Thursday, September 1, 2011
Schlagintweit has two older sisters currently in the midst of big-time university volleyball careers – Sofie with the NCAA’s Arizona State Sun Devils, and Rosie with the UBC Thunderbirds. Jeremy’s older brothers are also elite athletes – Matt was a volleyball all-star at MEI and then at Douglas College, while Nathan, a hockey goalie, led the Kootenay Ice to a WHL title last season and was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in June. “There’s an amazing amount of support,” Lieuwen said, analyzing the benefits of the sporting culture in his family. “Between games (at nationals), I was getting text messages from my brothers and my parents – to keep going hard. They know what it’s like to be there.” “They also help you get there,” Schlagintweit chimed in with a chuckle. “My sisters used to beat volleyballs at me as hard as they could. They made me a player, they made me tough. “I guess I liked volleyball, and they realized it, so they told me I was going to be the best volleyball player around. They would make me play every day.”
When beach volleyball partners Kristof Schlagintweit and Jeremy Lieuwen set the goal of winning a medal at the under-18 national championships, they realized they had their work cut out for them. The Abbotsford duo, after all, were a year younger than most of their competitors at the Canadian championships, held in Toronto last weekend. Schlagintweit and Lieuwen came through with a series of tremendous performances, battling their way to bronze. “We’re ecstatic about it,” Schlagintweit said of the podium finish. “We just went out and had some fun.” Schlagintweit and Lieuwen have a lot in common, beyond their enviable volleyball skills. Both are heading into their senior year of high school – Schlagintweit at Yale Secondary and Lieuwen at Mennonite Educational Institute – and both come from families with more than their share of high-profile athletes.
Kristof Schlagintweit (left) and Jeremy Lieuwen teamed up to win bronze at U18 beach volleyball nationals.

Schmidt signs with Spartans Spencer Schmidt of Abbotsford has signed on with the Trinity Western University men’s soccer team for the 2011-12 season. The W.J. Mouat Secondary grad is entering his fourth season of eligibility following two years at the University of Washington (20042005) and a year at the University of the Fraser Valley (2007). Schmidt was a standout striker at UFV, tying for second in the Canada West
goal-scoring race with eight, while leading the conference in shots per game (4.14). He was named a CIS all-Canadian following the 2007 campaign, becoming the first UFV player to earn that honour. Schmidt’s younger sister Sophie is a regular with Canada’s senior women’s national team, and Spencer has represented Canada at the U17 level.

MCC Festival & Silent Auction Fr i d a y & S a t u r d a y, S e p t e m b e r 9 t h & 1 0 t h a t T R A D E X
Making a difference for generations to come Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC) annual MCC Festival is held to help assist the lives of those around the world who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. This year’s event takes place at Abbotsford’s Tradex, 1190 Cornell St., on Sept. 9 and 10. Through the Generations initiative, MCC is touching the lives of millions by caring for people living with HIV/ AIDS, by supporting children orphaned by the disease, teaching prevention, and addressing the poverty and injustices that perpetuate the spread of the disease.
Each year, thousands descend on Tradex to enjoy food from around the world, listen to great entertainment, find treasures at the craft booths, take part in silent and live auctions, and more. The MCC Festival has something for every generation. Bring your children to take part in the numerous activities set up just for them. Cycling enthusiasts can take part in the Pedaling for Hope cyclathon. Don’t forget to bring your pennies to the Penny Power Booth and see your change make a change in
the world. Another highlight this year is the contribution from Fraserway RV. For the last 20 years, Fraserway RV in Abbotsford has contributed to the MCC Festival by providing a recreational vehicle for the auction, which they are doing again this year. There will be a number of RVs ranging from a truck camper to a travel trailer for the winning bidder to choose from. MCC would like to offer a large thank you to the staff of Fraserway RV for their generosity and for support.
