Crime rate spiralling down Reduction of nearly a third in three years

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) has recorded a total 29 per cent drop in crime in the last three years, with reductions in almost all categories. Preliminary year-end statistics released at last week’s police board meeting indicate that the depart-

ment is on track with its goals to reduce all Criminal Code offences. “The trend to an increasingly safer city seems to be borne out in the stats,” said Const. Ian MacDonald. Areas in which drops were recorded last year, compared to 2010, include murder, home invasions, stolen vehicles, thefts from vehi-

cles, and break-ins of homes and businesses. One of the largest drops – 21 per cent – was in the number of stolen vehicles. There were 639 such crimes in 2010, compared to 505 last year. MacDonald said the crime reduction unit can take credit for that, Continued on A6

Black ice causes morning havoc

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Black ice contributed to several collisions Monday morning in Abbotsford, including one that shut down power to more than 3,000 homes. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said most of the crashes occurred between 4:30 and 6 a.m., before the temperature rose. The only incident outside of those hours was at about 1 a.m. in the 29000 block of Fraser Highway, when a vehicle slid into a ditch. A few hours later – at 4:40 a.m. – a Jeep Liberty was heading west on Fraser Highway just past Mt. Lehman Road when the driver hit a patch of black ice, slid into the oncoming traffic lane and into a snowbank. The vehicle landed on its roof at the side of the road, and the driver suffered only minor injuries. Another collision took place at 4:47 a.m. on Harris Road near Gladwin. The driver of a westbound Dodge Ram pickup attempted to pass the vehicle in front of him, lost control and went off the road. Just two minutes later, a driver heading west on Maclure Road near Clearbrook Road lost traction and ran into a hydro pole. The impact toppled the pole and sent power lines across the road, landing on the roof of an eastbound car. Continued on A10

No jail for bringing guns over border American soldier was driving to new posting in Alaska Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

A member of the American Armed Services who tried to cross the Abbotsford border with two handguns last May should not be jailed for what was an obvious mistake, a provincial court judge has ruled. Judge Ronald Caryer said Staff Sgt. Ditrek Lamone Mack, who has had four tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq, believed it was legal to carry guns into Canada as long as he was leaving within 24 hours. According to provincial court documents, Mack, his wife and their three children were crossing at the Sumas border on May 1, 2011, on their way to Alaska, where he had been transferred. Mack did not disclose that the guns were in the car, but the vehicle was searched and two loaded Taurus PT firearms were found: one in the console and one in a

bag. Mack had purchased the guns in Georgia, where he was stationed, through the army/ air force exchange. The guns were seized, and Mack was charged with smuggling goods into Canada, unauthorized possession of a firearm and possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition. He pleaded guilty, and his sentencing hearing was held recently in Abbotsford provincial court. In his ruling, Caryer noted the cultural distinction between the use of firearms in Canada and the U.S. “We are not a gun culture here ... We have very strict rules about how they (guns) are to be stored ... That is inconsistent with the cultural values that Americans place on the right to bear arms.” He also commented on the role that the “proliferation of guns” has played in recent gang shootings – including the

death of Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna last summer. However, he acknowledged that Mack’s intention was not to smuggle guns into Canada for criminal use, and he had a stellar reputation as a decorated member of the American army. Caryer said he did not want to sentence Mack to any jail time, as he would then be unable to serve in the army, including an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan. “He is a person that we all owe a great debt of gratitude and thanks for going and representing the allies in the fight against terrorism,” Caryer said. “He has committed a criminal act, but it is a one-off and it is done basically by mistake.” The guns and ammunition were forfeited for destruction, and Mack was prohibited from possessing firearms or ammunition in Canada for five years. He was also given a $500 fine.

NewsBytes MURDER CONFIRMED The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has officially confirmed that the death of Abbotsford’s Ryan Saint Ange on Jan. 14 is a murder. IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Jennifer Pound said autopsy results have been completed, but the cause of death is not being revealed as it is part of the investigation. She said IHIT is still wanting to speak with anyone who might have information about the murder. Saint Ange, 21, was found dead by a friend who had stopped to visit him at his home in the 27700 block of 56 Avenue. Although others lived in the home, no one else was there when the friend arrived just after midnight. This is the first murder in Abbotsford since September 2010. There were four homicides that year in the city, and none last year. Anyone with information about Saint Ange’s murder is asked to call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Plows parked after week of 24/7 Snow clearing costs approximately $55,000 per day Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Last week’s snowfall had city workers on the roads, 24 hours a day, dealing with the blast of winter weather. “Basically we had about 15 pieces of equipment on the road – plows, sanders and graders – that were on basically 24-hour shifts from Friday (Jan. 13) to to Friday (Jan. 20),” said Rob Isaac, Abbotsford’s director of wastewater, drainage and asset management. He said the full-time effort cost about $55,000 a day. That translates to about one-third of the city’s $1.2-million annual snow clearing budget. “After Friday night we went back to on-call service ... and now we’re back to

a preventative response, the salt brine on the roads ... to alleviate black ice.” He termed it normal winter coverage. While the winter storm closed schools and made driving a hazardous exercise, Isaac said there were no “serious” problems, “other than the snow drifts and the winds on Sumas Prairie.” Even the sudden thaw did not cause the difficulties expected. The city had been working with the residents of Clayburn Village, preparing sandbags in case of flooding, but it didn’t happen. “No flooding, not that we’re aware of. The temperatures didn’t get too high so the snow melted slower.” While the snow and extreme cold have

been replaced by higher than normal temperatures – today’s (Tuesday) forecast is predicting rain and temperatures hitting 10 degrees Celsius and 12 degrees on Wednesday – there are still two full months of winter on the horizon. The plows are back at the public works yard, receiving maintenance, and will be back on the roads when required.

Waste services: Last week’s snowfall prevented many Abbotsford homes from receiving trash and recycling pickup service from the city. Any house that did not have garbage or recycling picked up will be allowed to place double the amount on the next normal day of service.

The City of Abbotsford had about 15 pieces of snow-clearing equipment operating around the clock last week.

The weather conditions last week may have been bad for drivers, but they were good for crime reduction. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said police received only one report of a crime during a 24hour period from Wednesday morning to Thursday morning. The incident involved a man climbing a pole to steal a closed-circuit video camera from a business in the 33300 block of South Fraser Way. MacDonald said the witness who reported the crime described it as follows: “The guy shimmied up the icy pipe at the back of the building like a sure-footed rodent.”

A demolition crew has been working for nearly two months to tear down and recycle the old Clayburn brick plant. It was announced in March of 2011 that Clayburn Industries Ltd. would be permanently closing its Abbotsford manufacturing plant at the end of July. The decision was then made to take the building down. “We do not have an obligation to remove the building at this point in time, but we’ve chosen to,” said David Lane, president and CEO of Clayburn Industries. “The building is not suitable for any other use, that we can envision, that would be suitable for this property.” The plan is to remove the manufacturing plant and the inventory storage sheds. “It is not our intent, at this point in time, to vacate the site. Nor is it our intention to remove the two-storey office building.” A few sheds on the west side of the property will also remain. The Clayburn name plays a large role in Abbotsford’s history. The brick plant originated in 1905 in the area now known as Clayburn Village, which was B.C.’s first company town as almost all of the homes were created for plant staff. The plant relocated several times before opening on its present Pine Street location in 1949. Despite the closure, the name Clayburn will endure. Lane said the company will continue to staff

the head office, finance, and administration and construction operations at the Abbotsford site. “All we are doing is removing the equipment and the buildings and the concrete foundations, backfilling the site to a level condition and prepping it for whatever it will eventually become.” Brad Morrison, general manager of Clearview Grinding Ltd. and project manager on the demolition site, said it will take a total of six months to complete the job. ‘There’s about 1,000 tons of steel and 15,000 tons of concrete,” said Morrison. His company reuses and recycles as much of the materials from a site as possible. One substance that cannot be reused is the nearly 100 tons of asbestos that was contained in the roof. “We have asbestos procedure that we have to follow through WorkSafe BC,” said Morrison. Crew members had to wear special suits, masks and other protective gear when handling the material. The asbestos was then shipped to a facility in Alberta. The rest of the building will be processed locally. According to Morrison, the wood will be broken down and shipped to a local company, to eventually be used as fuel. The concrete will have the rebar removed and then be crushed along with the brick and used for backfill. Whatever material cannot be recycled or repurposed will be taken away as garbage. “We strive not to fill up our landfills. We’re looking to recycle and reuse as much as we can. That’s our goal.”

Fatal collisions down 69% from 13 in 2010 to four last year. Collisions with injuries dropped 11 per cent – from 445 in 2010 to 394 last year. MacDonald said police are still concerned about the number of crashes and fatalities and want to bring the stats down even further in 2012. The traffic section phased in more officers in the last half of 2011, and those numbers are now where they need to be, MacDonald said. There are currently one sergeant, 10 enforcement constables, two collision reconstructionists, and one clerk. MacDonald said there will be increased enforcement and more awareness campaigns – aimed at drivers and pedestrians – this year. “We’re certainly hoping we’re going to see an impact in reducing injury collisions (and fatalities),” he said. Police will release a more detailed year-end report at a later date.

with an increased focus last year on keeping an eye on prolific offenders and an awareness campaign that included the distribution of free anti-theft devices to drivers of the most targeted vehicles. The number of violent crimes was recorded as a seven per cent increase, but MacDonald said this is because of the way sexual assaults were recorded. Last year, many of these reports were based on assaults that had occurred in years past, but they were recorded as a 2011 statistic, resulting in a 29 per cent increase in sex assaults from 2010. MacDonald said the system was changed at the beginning of this year, and “historical” reports are now recorded under the year in which they took place. Another large reduction – 69 per cent – was recorded in the number of fatal collisions,

Heat back on at Vista Villa

Hear Life.

Tenants continue with complaint After some five weeks of cold, the heat is back on at Vista Villa apartments. On Tuesday, The News published an article about how Pat Beaulieu was organizing a petition of fellow residents in the Robertson Avenue building to try and put the heat on property management company Mainstreet Equity Corp to repair the building’s ailing BEAULIEU boiler. Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen was helping the residents deal with the province’s Residential Tenancy Branch, and contacted Mainstreet management on behalf of the residents. However, by Wednesday night, Beaulieu was informed the heat in her suite should be back on. “I’m sitting here, warm,” said

A7

I wished I hadn’t waited so long...

a delighted Beaulieu, her happy sentiment echoed throughout the building. “The ones I’ve checked with do have heat.” She said the residents will still continue with the complaint process they have started with the Residential Tenancy Branch, because heat is supposed to be included in their rent. She feels they should be entitled to reimbursement. Beaulieu said one resident has emails showing she started complaining about having heat off in her suite as far back as September. She said it came back on just in time to counter the past week’s more extreme winter conditions, but the building was chilly. “Even with my (portable) heater on, I was down to 61 degrees (16 C) here on Tuesday night.” Other residents, who were using their ovens for heat, would have been even colder.

I had known for 12 years I should probably get hearing aids. I went to Crystal Hearing Centre and had my hearing screening done, I needed 2 hearing aids. They were so helpful, friendly and willing to answer all of my questions. I’ve had my new hearing aids for 1 1/2 years now and they are so comforatable it’s easy to forget I even have them in my ears!

Prepared for winter

It took awhile, but winter finally arrived, albeit just for a week. That white stuff that fell from the sky and turned the roads to a slippery mess serves as a reminder that Lotus Land is still a part of Canada, the great white north. And with its arrival came the usual lineups at garages as drivers hustled to get snow tires installed so they could navigate the area’s hills and highways. The last two winters have been relatively kind to local drivers. Annual winter snowfall has decreased generally over the past 20 years. That’s a long way from the winters of 2006 and 2008 when the Lower Mainland was repeatedly hammered by storms. The winter weather can indeed be fickle and unpredictable. And still we continue to gamble we won’t need to bear the expense of installing snow tires, getting the car tuned up for winter driving, tucking

an ice scraper under the front seat, topping up the windshield washer reservoir, or even having proper winter boots and clothing along in case the car gets stuck, and walking becomes mandatory. Those drivers in seasonal denial aren’t hard to spot. They’re the ones with the death grip on their steering wheel, peering through the tiny patch of windshield they bothered to clear with a handy credit card, sliding around in even a light snowfall. It would be funny, if it weren’t so dangerous. West Coast drivers aren’t the best winter drivers because we don’t get much practice at it. We need all the help we can get. That means getting those snow tires installed, keeping those fluids topped up, clearing the snow and ice off all the windows, and taking it easy in dark, slippery conditions. Winter’s here. Be prepared. Stay safe. – Black Press

It could have, and has been, worse Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand The wonder of snow is that it can be both concealing and revealing. Concealing is obvious … the ‘revealing’ part is when things are covered, it proves they are not used. Such as the dozen or so vehicles in the parking lot behind city hall; from the heavy coating still observable on Friday before the thaw, it was obvious none had been driven for the entire time we had snow. So, if these vehicles can be parked for a week, why have them at all? Would it not be more financially beneficial to the taxpayer to have city employees use rentals when they require a car, rather than saddling the city with the yearly costs of purchase, insurance and depreciation? Certainly there is reason for Abbotsford to have municipal vehicles, but so many that at least a dozen can sit idle for a week or so? Just a money-saving thought.

Also observed while in the vicinity of city hall was sidewalk cleaning, and that not even one shovelful of effort was made to clear the way into the International Friendship Garden. Does that mean even the city has acknowledged no one ever uses that walled-in ‘park’? Then again, who is going to bother visiting a ‘garden’ under a foot of snow, so maybe I can let that one go. What I can take issue with is the lack, or perhaps infrequency, of snow clearing on many sidewalks under the responsibility of the city. I cruised around Mill Lake Park, and while it appeared the walks had been cleared of the first heavy dump of snow, subsequent snowfalls seemed to have been ignored. And the sidewalk bordering Ledgeview Golf Course saw no effort at all. Yet, in my travels about the community, many citizens were diligently scraping every flake of snow off the walks in front of their homes and businesses. There is a bylaw requiring snow clearing, therefore should not the city abide by its own rules? However, out in the boonies where I live great effort was expended by the snowplow operators. Our roads were

cleared quickly and early, and out on the prairies of Sumas and Matsqui, they were busy busting drifts and keeping routes open. Downtown, on the other hand, was still a bit of mess even by mid-week. When you live outside the urban area,

There is a bylaw requiring snow clearing, therefore shouldn’t the city abide by its own rules? you rather expect things to be a little difficult, and adjust your life and vehicle to meet the conditions. Granted, trying to smash through snowdrifts is beyond the vehicular ability of most, but others are usually a little more prepared to deal with the challenges winter can bring (despite the occasional moan about it). But ‘downtown?’ While the streets were plowed, they weren’t that well done, and the huge ‘windrows’ down the

middle of streets made turning left into malls and parking lots difficult, particularly if you happened to be driving a small, low-slung car. Then again, the guys in big fourwheelers seemed to take particular joy in blasting their way through them, and in a sense clearing the way for the less well equipped. The truth however, is that for all our complaining, those living in the rest of the province, and throughout the country would have seen the last week or so as a minor inconvenience. In fact, the snow we had was mild in comparison to what we had four or five Christmases ago, and certainly nothing like the winter of 1969 when for weeks we were snowed under, with drifts in some areas hitting 20 feet. Be happy with what little ‘winter’ we just experienced. Remember the Christmas card mornings of last week, and be appreciative that in just a few weeks the flowers will be blooming again. Then maybe, the million-dollar Friendship Garden will get the occasional visitor.

Canadians are trying to have their moral cake and eat it too. Why is it repugnant to kill an unborn child because she’s a girl, but OK to kill her because her parents already have all the children they want? The fact we need to face as a society is that female feticide is repugnant because killing little girls is wrong. And if killing little girls is wrong (and we know it is) then abortion is wrong too, because that’s what abortion does every day, many times over in Canada. So yes, let’s do what we can to reduce and end sex-selective abortions, but if we really want to be consistent in our morality let’s do what we can to end all abortions. Jared White

Think of pets in cold weather In the cold weather, please let’s not forgot our pets. Maybe your dog or cat is used to being outside. But these are extreme conditions. Either bring your pet inside, or make sure they have lots of food, and shelter to get out of the cold. I know I will hear, “Well, what about our homeless?”

They need help too but our pets rely on us for help. Animals cannot help themselves. Let’s not forget them out there in the cold and snow. Farm animals like horses need blankets, and the other barn animals of course need a barn or shelter of some kind.

Let’s also not forget our feathered friends. If you have seed, hang up a peanut butter or fat feeder mixed with seed. Let’s help our helpless animals. After all, are we not called man – kind. Sandra Denisuk

I wish to comment on an editorial published yesterday in the Canadian Medical Association Journal regarding the “repugnant” practice of “female feticide” or sex-selective abortions. See http://www.cmaj.ca/content/ early/2012/01/16/cmaj.120021. I am very happy that this respected medical journal is treating this very important subject with the attention it deserves. However, I am concerned by the lack of moral consistency this subject engenders in many Canadians. On the one hand, we rightly conclude it is morally repugnant to terminate a pregnancy for an undesired sex; on the other hand we conclude it is morally acceptable to terminate a pregnancy for almost any other reason.

Motoring mishaps on icy roads From A1

MacDonald said the driver of that car remained in her vehicle until rescue crews arrived. The incident left 3,200 BC Hydro customers without power, covering an area east/west from Clearbrook Road to Automall Drive and north/south

from Downes Road to Peardonville Road. Power was restored to all homes by early afternoon. The last incident took place at about 6 a.m., when a Mazda CX-7 travelling east on Blueridge Drive towards Clearbrook Road spun out in the middle of the road and got stuck.

The driver was able to move her vehicle a few minutes later when city crews arrived on the scene. MacDonald said other areas of Abbotsford were also icy, including Straiton Road, which police shut down for a few hours until it could be salted and sanded.

2012 Rogue: Innovation that adapts

“There are many ways to look at ‘value’ in a vehicle these days and the new Nissan Rogue delivers by every measure – affordability, fuel efficiency, quality and versatility,” said Judy Wheeler, Director, Marketing, Nissan Canada Inc. ”For 2012, Rogue was updated with the same themes in mind when it was named – aggressive styling, functionality and fun-to drive.” Each 2012 Rogue comes with the new standard sport mode switch, a standard 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine,

Nissan’s advanced Xtronic CVT™ (Continuously Variable Transmission), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control System (TCS) and 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Rogue also offers a long list of standard safety features including front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags and roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags. “The 2012 Rogue has again raised the bar for style and ‘on-road’

performance in the Small Crossover market”, said Wheeler. “It was designed, and has succeeded in being an over-achiever in all aspects appearance, utility, quality, attention to detail and value.” “Unlike many SUVs in the market, Rogue’s design invokes an immediate emotional response with its power, style and sophistication,” said Wheeler. “Then once you get inside, you’re pleasantly reminded that all the utility and functionality is there as well.”

Is a Tax Free Savings Account right for you? Whether you’re looking to save for that new kitchen reno, to enhance your retirement income, or for that dream safari (so you can finally see a giraffe up-close), the reasons for investing in a TFSA are vast and personal. (Although who wouldn’t love to see a giraffe up-close?) Here are three top-level reasons that aim to encapsulate the reasons why a TFSA may be right for you. The rainy-day and sunny-day* saver: There’s more to preparing for the weather than simply having an umbrella. We all talk about the elusive “rainy day”. And sure, many of us have a savings vehicle – an umbrella – all set just in case. But what happens when we go to use this umbrella, and we get dinged for it? Not cool. A TFSA, on the other hand, is an all-purpose savings account that not only offers the flexibility to save for said rainy day, but it allows savings to build tax-free. And avoid being penalized to use your very own hard-earned umbrella. * Just as there are rainy-day savings, so too can we have sunny-day savings. A tucked-away stash at-the-ready for purchases that make life all the more special. The life-stages planner: Go from milestone to milestone with ease. While life has a way of revealing itself, there are certain inalienable truths that – at one time or another – will resonate with each of us.The first car.The education.The wedding.The new home.The home renos. The retirement. And then, just when you think you’ve covered them all, a new set of life stages reveal themselves.Your children’s first car.Their education.Their wedding. And on it goes. Because you can contribute $5,000 each year, and because you can carry over unused contributions from previous years, a TFSA is an ideal savings vehicle to accrue funds. And an ideal means to top-up savings for your golden years, as well. You can withdraw your money when you need to and you can re-contribute the money you withdraw.Withdraw smaller bits (think: tuition) or one lump sum (think: daughter’s wedding), and incur absolutely no tax penalties. The retired saver: Just because you’ve retired, doesn’t mean your investments should. Planning for your retirement requires that all kinds of decisions be made. And, some of these can feel overwhelming. Especially given that you want your savings to stretch as far as they possibly can. Well, if you’ve got surplus funds you want to save for later in retirement, a TFSA provides you with an ideal investment vehicle. With a TFSA, you can tax-shelter your non-registered funds, up to $5,000 annually, as income earned in TFSAs is tax-free. And, not only is there no age threshold at which a TFSA must be converted to a taxable account, it gets better. Any withdrawlas made from your TFSA will not impact income-tested federal government benefits like the Guaranteed Income Supplement, Old Age Security, and the Age Credit. So you can scratch that concern off your list. TFSA tip Ah, the tax-saving joys of income-splitting! You can give funds to a lower-income spouse to contribute to their TFSA. Let’s chat Whether you have limited RRSP contribution room, expect to receive income-tested benefits/ credits, expect your marginal tax rate to increase when you retire, or you need access to your funds before retirement, a TFSA is likely to be beneficial for you. Scenarios for saving and investing are as unique as your fingerprint and we take tremendous pride in helping you come to the best decisions. www.vancity.com

Connauton making strides

wipedout ?

All-star defenceman leads Canucks farm team into Abbotsford

Whether you spent the last month traveling to see friends the family, working long days, eating rich foods or staying up far too late in the excitement of the holidays, now’s the time to slow down. Chances are, you woke up one morning and realized that an entire month’s worth of working and playing hard is showing up on your skin - most notably, your face. But don’t despair - the damage can be fixed with some know-how. From your beauty experts at Shoppers DrugMart Whatcom.

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

In a roundabout way, Kevin Connauton had to go backward in order to move forward in his hockey career. Over the summer, the Vancouver Canucks prospect spent hours working on one of hockey’s most basic skills – backwards skating. It was an apt metaphor for where Connauton’s game needed to go in order to improve his professional stock. The 21-year-old defenceman, a thirdround draft choice by the Canucks in 2009, had always been a terrific offensive player – in 2009-10, he racked up 72 points in just 69 games during his final junior season with the Vancouver Giants. Connauton’s play in his own zone, though, was shaky by comparison. At the close of the 2010-11 campaign,

don’t pass up the perfume Valentine’s day is packed with romantic appeal and for that reason you owe it to your self to dab a little perfume or your wrists before you meet your honey. While it’s important to choose a scent that fits your personality, popular valentine’s day scents tend to be floral with a touch of spice. Don’t go too heavy on your fragrance, the goal is to tantalize your date with your perfume, not send him home sneezing. So while at the Beauty Boutique sample 6 - 10 fragrances and pick the one you like the best for you or that someone special.

Chicago Wolves defenceman Kevin Connauton leads all AHL defencemen in goalscoring, and he’s been named to the league all-star game. Connauton’s first as a pro with the Manitoba Moose, the Canucks brass told him there was room to improve his backward-skating mobility. The Edmonton na-

tive made it a priority over the summer, as he worked out in his hometown alongside local NHLers like Kyle Brodziak of the Minnesota Wild and Edmonton Oilers play-

The University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball team turned in a pair of gritty performances on one of their most grueling road trips of the season, as they beat the Regina Cougars and the Brandon Bobcats on the weekend. Kyle Grewal led the charge for the Cascades – the fourthyear power forward racked up 23 points and 10 rebounds in an 86-73 win over Regina on Friday, and posted 21 points and eight boards in an 85-75 triumph in Brandon on

Saturday. “It’s a very difficult road trip, and it’s nice for us to put together back-to-back solid performances,� said Cascades coach Barnaby Craddock, whose team improved to 9-5 on the season, good for third in the Pacific Division. “We played hard, and we maintained our focus for 48 minutes both nights. For our group, that’s key. When we play our game with focus, we’re going to be in the game down the stretch with any team in the country.� In women’s action,

Cascades women fall to top-ranked Regina From A21

the Cascades faced opponents at both ends of the Canada West spectrum. On Friday, UFV dropped a 78-61 decision to the undefeated Regina Cougars, the top-ranked team in the nation. They pushed the Cougars, though, trailing by one point heading into the fourth quarter before the hosts pulled away down the stretch. On Saturday, the Cascades had an easier go of it – they crushed winless Brandon (0-14) by a score of 65-30. The UFV women (10-4) are second in the Pacific Division, trailing the UBC Thunderbirds (10-2). Q Saturday is a big day for the UFV basketball program, as they host the Trinity Western Spartans in a doubleheader at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. The women’s game tips off at 5 p.m., followed by the men at 7 p.m.

Connauton has made tremendous strides. He leads all AHL defencemen in goals with 10, and he’s been named to the league’s all-star game. “This year, I’m just a lot more confident in my game,” explained Connauton, whose Wolves are in Abbotsford this week for a TuesdayWednesday set with the Heat (7 p.m. both nights, Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre). “Defensively, my positioning is a lot better, I’m a lot better with my stick, and I’m a lot more comfortable accepting the rush and playing in my own zone. “When I have the confidence defensively, I think my offence improves as well.” Wolves head coach Craig MacTavish said Connauton’s AHL allstar nod is richly deserved. “He’s been outstanding for us,” MacTavish said. “He’s been a very consistent performer each and every night. He’s a big contributor for us on the power play as well – big shot, great skater, incredible endurance and conditioning. He’s a really, really hard-working player.” IN BRIEF: Q The Heat are coming off a weekend split with the Charlotte Checkers. The Checkers won Friday’s opener 5-0, but the Heat bounced back to win 5-2 on Saturday. Q The Heat-Wolves games will be televised on Shaw TV.

OBITUARIES

ARMSTRONG, Anthony Charles

7 September, 1951 17 January, 2012 The powerful, creative, talented, generous spirit that was Tony passed peacefully on Tuesday 17 January at Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack. While Tony wanted to live, he knew the catastrophe of pancreatic cancer. He made each step easy on family and friends by accepting his medical condition, getting his affairs in order, and keeping his humour and insight razor sharp. He had closed his company FUBAR Electric and passed the torch for his many projects. Left to miss him most are his family: wife Karen Saenger, mom Phyllis, brothers and their families (Jim and Eileen, Shannon, Jeff, Brendan and Sara; Jo, Owen; Andy and Marilyn, Clayton, Kody; Gerry and Caroline), dad-in-law Adolf, sisters-in-law and their families (Susan and Phill, Ellen and Cameron, Maya, Jessie and Anja). Tony was predeceased by his dad Bob, sister Rosalie, momin-law Lotte, and nephew Morgan. Seldom reverent, Tony was a man of ever-ready contradictions: uncomplicated yet complex, tough but soft, exuberant yet cautious, shy yet engaging, critical and compassionate. He brought the same curiosity, wonder, and affection to the care of small critters as to the workings of the universe. Special thanks to Drs. Winston and Brown at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Dr. Bull at the Cascade Hospice for their personal attention and care. Nurses too numerous to mention will never be forgotten for the gentle and dignified way in which they treated Tony. Please, no flowers. Donations to Tony’s cat friends at the Chilliwack Safe Haven (49843 Chilliwack Central Road, V2P 6H3) or the Chilliwack Hospice Society (45360 Hodgins Ave, V2P 1P5) would be truly appreciated. A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday 27 January at the Woodlawn Mt. Cheam funeral home (45865 Hocking Ave, Chilliwack). Reception to follow at the St Thomas Anglican Church hall (46048 Gore Ave).

FRIESEN Henry Dec. 11, 1921 ~ Jan. 20, 2012

Henry was born in Aberdeen, Saskatchewan to Abram and Margaret Friesen, the 2nd of 9 children. As a young boy, he spoke German only at home, not learning English until he attended school, as was common with the Mennonites of that area. Henry attended school until the completion of grade 8. At age 13 he began working at a neighbouring farm to contribute to the family income. When he was 19, Henry’s family moved from Saskatchewan to Mission, BC. He was unwilling to leave behind his beloved horses Tex and Bill, and so convinced his father to allow him to fashion a covered wagon, and bring his horses to the West Coast from the Prairies, with the journey taking him 3 months. In October 1943, Henry was voluntarily inducted into the Royal Canadian Air Force and served his country in WWII, being discharged in September 1945, once Armistice was achieved. Henry married the love of his life, Irma Braun, on June 30, 1948 in Mission, BC. In 1952, they relocated to Manning, Alberta with 4 children. They homesteaded there, clearing the treed ½ section, producing a farm from wild land. While there, 5 more children were added to the family. In 1971, the family moved back to the Fraser Valley, farming 32 acres of raspberries. They left the farming life in 1988. Henry was an active member of the communities he lived in, as well as the churches he attended, and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was a hard worker with a very generous heart. His Lord and family were everything to him. Henry passed into the glorious presence of his Lord and Saviour on January 20, 2012, with most of his children at his side. He was predeceased by his wife of 59 years, Irma, his youngest son Ron, his parents and numerous siblings. Henry is survived by his children, Donna Ferriss (Vern), Cecile Friesen, Geraldine Rook (Roger), Vern Friesen (Karyn), Mel Friesen (Evelyn), Deb Wright (Ed), Tom Friesen, and Patty Stone (Phil) as well as 39 grandchildren, 33 great grandchildren, 4 siblings and a multitude of extended family. The Lord has blessed us in both the life and passing of our dearly loved father – Blessed be the Name of the Lord! A memorial service will be held at Clearbrook MB Church at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 25, 2012. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Henry Friesen’s honour, to Samaritan’s Purse. The family wishes to thank the staff of ValHaven for the care and love they have shown to our father for the past 4 years. Online condolences to the family may be made to: www.wiebeandjeskefh.com

Wiebe, Martha October 9, 1916 January 19, 2012 Martha Wiebe passed away peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour on January 19, 2012. She was born on October 9, 1916 in South Russia. Her parents were Abram and Anna (Stobbe) Wiebe. The family immigrated to Canada in 1925 and settled in Hochfeld, Manitoba. In 1935 the family moved to Poplar Point, MB. Continued hard times caused the family to seek greener pasture and relocate to Yarrow, BC. Martha became a teacher and enjoyed 26 years in her chosen profession.

She is predeceased by her parents, four siblings who died in infancy, her sisters, Katherine & Mary (Wiebe) Unger, & John & Mary Friesen.
