Politicians trade words over City of Abbotsford’s plan to leave the regional district

Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Mayor George Peary is firing back at critics of the city’s plan to leave the Fraser Valley Regional District. FVRD chair Patricia Ross issued a press release last week critical of the move, and invited Abbotsford council to meet with her board “to explore the city’s concerns about membership in the region.” “I wonder which side of the table she’ll be sitting on,” Peary said of Ross, who is also an Abbotsford city councillor. He said Ross receives a $29,000 per year stipend from the FVRD, plus expenses. This is in addition to the $34,700 base pay from the city. He said she is “hardly a disinterested spectator.” Peary also responded to media reports quoting the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development saying there is no legislative provision to remove a municipality from a regional district. Peary said the city has already consulted Abbotsford’s MLAs about the issue, and “they are prepared at least to consider our request. They haven’t rejected it out of hand.” The city also raised the issue of leaving the FVRD with minister Ida Chong, and she too has not dismissed the idea. “It requires a legislative amendment. That’s why we’re talking to the politicians and not the bureaucrats,” Peary said. “There are legislative precedents to allow this to happen.” On Nov. 7 council voted 8-1 to ask Victoria for permission to become a single-tier government.

The trend in peak water use has been downward since 2007. Braun said average daily use has also decreased by 10 per cent over the last four years. In 2007, the city’s peak usage was 139.2 million litres in a day (MLD). In 2008 it dropped to 119.8 MLD, went to 126.6 in 2009, 106.8 in 2010 and last year it was 93.1.

The City of Abbotsford has over-projected its future water needs, claims council candidate Henry Braun. Other candidates have also publicly questioned city hall’s water-use estimates. However, city officials say Braun has limited his conclusions, without taking into account key factors affecting water use. Braun points out that water consumption over the past five years has dropped. “It appears that the city has been using inflated

‘Engineers can’t say it will probably be okay’ From A5

interpretation. “If you just look at the five figures, it appears as though the usage has gone down. But there are a lot of other factors at play ... You don’t plan a water system on five points of data,” said Gordon. He said 2011 was an abnormally cool year, which played a huge role in keeping consumption down, as did an unpopular watering ban in 2010. “We can’t bet that Mother Nature will give us cool Julys every year ... probability is, we are going to have another hot July, like we did in 2007, when our water use came very close to our capacity.” He said three or four days of 35-degree weather in mid-July would have a “dramatic” effect on consumption, which could easily surpass the 139 MLD mark reached in 2007, despite the recent reductions. “Engineers can’t say it will probably be okay; it absolutely has to be okay.” Gordon said the projections are based on a worst-case scenario. “They have to be.” July appears to be a key month for water use. Gordon said higher temperatures in August and September, don’t create the same demand “My point is, you can’t just look at a few figures, which is why we hire the consultants to do the master plans .. you need a more comprehensive study ... We can’t be hoping we have enough water, we have to know.” He said five years is a “pretty small snapshot”

and growth and consumpion trends need to be examined for 10 or 20 years. But Braun feels the projections will confuse some voters. “The numbers used by the city have had the effect of scaring some people into thinking that if they don’t vote yes, we will run out of water very soon,” said Braun. Braun believes water usage in 2012 will drop again, “because water conservation hasn’t kicked in yet.” Two-tiered billing and a higher awareness of the city’s need for water will cause people to conserve even more, he said. Braun does agree with the city that a steady rise in water use will occur due to population and business growth. “But that trajectory is entirely different from what the city is claiming.” By comparing the peak usage of the past few years, Braun has concluded that the present water system could be sufficient until 2020 and beyond. “That gives us time to look at some alternatives.” City manager Frank Pizzuto said people can’t look at a few years and decide things are fine. “Are you going to gamble on the weather and say, for the last three years we’ve had good weather so we’re going to be okay? “Or are you going to rely on extensive studies? “I believe that water, unlike other commodities, needs to be available 100 per cent of the time for residents and business. Anything less is unacceptable,” Pizzuto said.

Risky conclusions

Information is a powerful thing. How it is wielded can be extremely important. The City of Abbotsford’s water supply is a prime example. There is a virtual river of information surrounding this issue, with water usage data key among all the statistics. It is the latter which has become the focus for many residents, in part due to the claims of opponents of the proposed public-private partnership, and a number of council candidates, some of whom are in the same camp. The majority of the city’s figures originate from master water plan reports, prepared by engineers and other experts. They have taken existing data, such as daily average water consumption in the city and peak usage periods, as well as population growth trends and estimates, and analyzed those to arrive at future need projections. The conclusion of the 2010 AECOM water plan was the potential of a water

shortage by 2016 during peak periods, based on levels hit during very hot summer months in recent years. It is true that water consumption has decreased over the past four years, largely due to cooler weather, and increased watering restrictions during hot periods. However, there is no guarantee that such a climate trend will continue, while it is a solid fact that population growth in Abbotsford will continue to climb, as will business and industrial water consumption. Long-term water use projections must be based on worst-case scenarios, with major contingencies built in to guard against future water shortages. Disagree with the public-private partnership, if you wish. Ask for options, if you feel inclined. But it is dangerously simplistic to look at the past few years, and conclude that the city is in fine shape for water for another decade or more. That’s not planning, that’s just hoping.

letters Make conservation the focus Send a message

I attended the all-candidates debate last Tuesday evening. I am pleased to see so many people running in this election especially the younger candidates and five women. The P3 water project kept coming up and I noticed that all our incumbents except Patricia Ross continually justified the P3 project. Many new candidates were either against it or wanted to slow the process down. It appeared that most people in the room were not in favour of pushing ahead with the project, yet not one of the pro-P3 incumbents backed down from their sales pitch. I didn’t hear talk of water saving ideas or that we are actually back at our 2002 levels of water use. These comments and ideas came from new candidates, not our incumbents. Can you imagine how much water our city would save if half our homes had water-efficient showers, toilets, washing machines, dishwashers, etc? What if our city approached companies such as Rona, Home Depot, our independents, and the people of Abbotsford were offered good discounts for upgrading to water-efficient items or property tax discounts were given for water-saving upgrades.

Our new meters are showing people how much water they are actually using, and they are being charged for it. Those now paying hundreds of dollars I believe will start conserving water and turning to water-saving devices. With all the brilliant minds out there and all the rain we get in the Fraser Valley, there has to be a way to harness our rain and hold it, then disperse it when required. Let’s make water conservation our first focus and we will have water beyond 2016 and we will have the time to research the best ideas for moving forward in the future. I think young people with new ideas for council is a great idea. These are the people in the job market, with growing families, concerned about their children’s future and directly effected by all that is happening. Most of the current council lived when getting ahead was easy, jobs were abundant, pay was good, pensions were around, homeless people did not exist, and now they are retired with pensions. It is hard for us to put ourselves in young people’s shoes. Maybe it is time to let their voices be heard. Dianne Pender

The people of B.C. defied an out-of-touch provincial government, and voted down the HST. This despite a whole lot of “experts” telling them it was the wrong thing to do. I wonder if the voters of Abbotsford are offended enough to reject P3 water? Our so-called choice is P3 or no water. If we were given a similar choice for the office of mayor, the choices would be George Peary or no mayor. The city would launch an expensive campaign encouraging us to get out and exercise our democratic right. They would tell us we really need a mayor. Large, expensive ads would appear in local newspapers. Despite the city’s attempt at “educating” us, we must push for other options. Let’s work with Mission, instead

Let’s not be ashamed to staff a project with workers earning fair wages. Let’s ensure we have full control and total transparency in all aspects of this project, for the entire life of the project. The federal money is significant, but shame on the federal government for tying funding (taxpayer dollars) to privatization, while claiming there is no other money available. Let’s send our council and the federal government a message. Vote no.

letters Investment in future We are priviledged to live in a vibrant, progressive and diverse city. The free enterprize system and the entrepenerial spirit have been the economic engine that has allowed us to build one of the best places in the world to raise a family and build a secure future. Our residents are among the most generous in our country in terms of volunteering and donating financially. We need to handle our prosperity with care. The debate around the Stave Lake water project has turned negative and is dividing our city. It is easy to criticize, condemn and complain. Politicians are an easy target. I have listened to both sides and have come to the conclusion that we need to vote yes to Stave Lake Water on Nov. 19. The no side offers no constructive alternatives other than conservation. Although conservation is a noble goal that we should all work towards it will not be enough to secure a sustainable water source. City staff and professional consultants have studied 19 various scenarios and have concluded that Stave Lake is the best option. The no side is funded by CUPE (Canadian Union of Public Employees). As a general rule, public sector unions are not known for helping to build a strong economy.

Province will collect tolls on bridge, not TransLink

The federal government is offering a sizable amount of money that we would be foolish to reject. The city is not selling our water rights to a private company. The city is simply partnering with the private sector to deliver a publicly owned and funded utility. Many people are angry that the city is spending money to communicate the water issue to its citizens. They have no choice. How else can they engage the public in an important issue? Others are angry that they are not given a choice of options. Provincial legislation mandates that borrowing referendums must have 50 per cent plus one to pass. If we were presented with more than one option nothing would ever pass. We elect a council who hire staff that are instructed to deliver services. Staff then works with engineers and professionals to study all the options. The best option is then brought forward to the public for a vote. It is commendable that the city has a vision to the future and is planning for our future. I encourage people to seriously consider the future when they cast their vote. This is not frivolous spending – it is an investment in our future. Ross Siemens

letters Misleading letter on Walkerton tragedy In the Nov. 11 issue of The News, Laurie Hoekstra states in her letter that “The Walkerton disaster is an example of private control gone very, very wrong.” This is a misleading statement that needs to be clarified. The Walkerton tragedy occurred when the water system was operated by the public utility commission. Public operators “engaged in a host of improper operating practices, including failing to use adequate doses of chlorine, failing to monitor chlorine residuals daily, making false entries about residuals in daily operating records, and misstating the locations at which microbio logical samples were taken.” (Taken from the Walkerton Inquiry, available at www.attor neygeneral.jus.gov.

The Abbotsford Police Department has launched another positive messaging campaign aimed at youth – Project PRIME. School buses, unlike public transit, do not contain advertising messages on their interior panels. Local police thought they could be the first to put signs on the bus walls. The objective of the project is to “Prime” youth by supporting growth and action, says an APD press release. Project PRIME will see the placement of signs in school buses

A PRIME message in a school bus. where students will receive some positive messaging as they travel in any of the 50 buses that comprise the public and independent fleet. Small numbers can add up quickly, however. Those 50 buses will provide an estimated 1.3 million views over the course of the school year, Abbotsford

Police Const. Ian MacDonald points out. The Abbotsford Police Department have par tnered with the Abbotsford School District, St. John Brebeuf, MEI and Dasmesh schools in the project. The cost of printing the magnetic/cling signs was covered by TD Canada Trust.

Abbotsford voters heading to the polls this Saturday will find the name of one longtime trustee missing from the ballot. Joanne Field, who has served on the board of education for 15 years, including four years as chair, is not seeking re-election. Instead, she will spend the next three years on a sailing adventure with her husband, Ray. “It’s his time now,” Field said, referring to the demands that a public position can make on one’s personal life. She said the trip has been a lifelong dream of her husband’s and, although she has some hesitations about traversing major ocean crossings, she’s embracing the adventure. The pair begin their journey in January aboard a 57-foot off-shore sailboat that they recently purchased in Jacksonville, Florida. They will leave from there and then travel to the Caribbean, through the Panama Canal and Central America, and then along the west coast of North America, probably via Hawaii. The boat will be stored for periods – such as during hurricane season – at which time the couple will return to Abbotsford, and Field will continue her involvement in community endeavours such as the Rotary Club, Abbotsford Restorative Justice and the new City of Character initiative. She said she will miss the break from the board of education, but doesn’t rule out seeking another term when the sailing trip is over. “I feel like it’s an absolute honour and privilege to serve my community in this way.” Field was first elected as a trustee in 1996. She said she decided to seek political office because, as a parent of two children, she

Abbotsford News Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Vote Yes Affordable Water for

The Stave Lake Water Referendum gives citizens the opportunity to secure their water supply for generations to come.

5 Important Facts to help you make an informed decision. 1. There are NO other more affordable options

4. Conservation is not the complete answer

In 2010, Deloitte & Touche and AECOM released the 2010 Water Master Plan, a feasibility study that identiÀed 19 possible alternative combinations to supply Abbotsford’s water needs from six different sources.

Conservation, while important for everyone, is not the answer for Abbotsford’s growing water needs. This includes low-Áow toilets and shower heads, prohibition of lawn watering, and increased water restrictions and limits during peak usage time. Even with a 20% conservation of water usage, by 2016, Abbotsford will still need more water. Using all conservation efforts will NOT solve Abbotsford’s water shortage.

The Water Master Plan identiÀed Stave Lake as the most viable option from both environmental and Ànancial perspectives.

2. It will always be OUR water

5. A Diversified Water Supply

Even though a private company will be Ànancing $95 million of the $291 million project in the form of infrastructure and managing the facility, this will ALWAYS be Abbotsford’s project and water. The water will NEVER be exported and the water rates are NOT controlled by the private partner. The private partner would only be responsible for construction of the facility and managing the treatment and delivery of the water from Stave Lake to the Abbotsford water system. The water will NEVER become their property — it will always be the property of Abbotsford, and subject to the laws and requirements of the Fraser Health Authority and provincial Water Protection Act.

Stave Lake The city is not allowed, under the provincial Water Protection Act, to export bulk water, as conÀrmed in a letter signed the B.C. Deputy Controller of Water Rights, dated the Àrst week of November, 2011. It will be the City of Abbotsford that will determine the amount of water to be brought from Stave Lake and Abbotsford has access to the water at all times.

3. Quality control is guaranteed The Stave Lake water project and the private contractor building the facility are subject to all restrictions and regulations of the Fraser Health Authority and the provincial Water Protection Act. These strict rules must be kept, as mandated by law and a legally binding guaranteed contract.

85% of Abbotsford’s water currently comes from Norrish Creek, so even if that source is depleted, the Stave Lake watershed provides a safe alternative source. Abbotsford won’t have “all of its eggs in one basket,” when it comes to water. It’s not just about prevention, it’s about diversifying Abbotsford’s water supply. Abbotsford nearly lost the Norrish Creek water supply to a washout in 2003. If Norrish was lost today higher elevations of Abbotsford and outlying areas of the city would be without water for weeks, potentially impacting thousands of people and businesses.

On November 19, vote YES! for Stave Lake Water This message is paid for by concerned citizens including Dave Holmberg, founder of Bobcat Country; KJ Kim, owner of Heritage Valley Resort; Vern Siemens of Mt. Lehman Winery; Ross Siemens of Hub Motor Service; Randy Bartsch of Ecotex Healthcare Linen Service and the Esposite Group through the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, and is supported by the following Past Presidents: • James Barlow • Alan Asaph

The written critique of the artist is the first scholarly study of the Canadian painter and poet.

Peters teaches poetics and avant-garde art at the University of the Fraser Valley. The reading takes place Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. at The Reach, at 32388 Veterans Way.

Men aged 20 to 50 are invited to audition for the adventure-filled play Robinson Crusoe, with Gallery 7 & Theatre Performing Arts hosting a casting call Wednesday, Nov. 16. Starting at 6:30 p.m., actors can try out for this story of man shipwrecked on a deserted island after a violent storm. After 26 years of living in isolation, Crusoe befriends a Caribe Indian, and in doing so, discovers the power of friendship and the value of acceptance despite differences. “This production contains all the ingredients for a compelling and entertaining theatre experience and will provide actors with a unique and rewarding challenge,” said Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7 Theatre’s artistic director. “It explores faith, survival and friendship while delving in to the realities of what happens in the absence of community and social structure.” The play runs Jan. 20-21, 26-28, and Feb. 2-4 at 7:30 p.m. with matinees on Jan. 21 and 28 at 2 p.m. Rehearsals start Nov. 21 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Performances and practices are at the MEI Theatre, at 4081 Clearbrook Rd. To volunteer or for more information call 604504-5940 or email at info@gallery7theatre.com.

Congratulations to the nominees of the Abbotsford Business Excellence Awards

Celebrating the honour The high calibre of the nominees makes it a formidable task for our judges to select a recipient in each category. In fact, all nominees should be equally proud of their accomplishments and feel truly honoured, as being distinguished by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of recognition.

In every community there are individuals, businesses and organizations whose effort and achievement go far beyond the ordinary. It may be a new enterprise just starting to make its mark, an industry leader that stands out from his or her peers or a well established business that continues to reflect strong, innovative management. The Abbotsford Business Excellence Awards is our business community’s annual recognition of those successes. It is an opportunity to identify and celebrate the characteristics, knowledge and actions that make Abbotsford great.

On behalf of the Business Excellence Committee, I offer congratulations to all this year’s nominees for a job well done.

Celebrating Nomine Outstanding reviews for a guy who talks to dolls Ventriloquist Michael Harrison has made a successful career talking to dolls, and he’s quite willing to acknowledge that. “People ask me all the time why I became a ventriloquist. Simple answer, “I have no friends.” Regardless, for someone with no friends, he certainly has no lack of success. He has worked with the likes of Boyz II Men, The Muppets, and recently performed alongside multi-platinum recording artist, Kelly Clarkson. Michael’s talents have allowed him to perform all over the world as an entertainer. His venues have ranged from New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and numerous cruise ships including the Disney Cruise Line as a headline act. He will now be bringing that act to Abbotsford. “Wait, that can’t be right!” jokes Harrison, “someone get my agent on the phone!” He recently appeared on the popular television show “America’s Got Talent,” where celebrity judges David Hasselhoff, Sharon

Osborne and Piers Morgan gave him outstanding reviews. The NBC show auditioned more than 25,000 acts and averaged 12 million weekly viewers. Harrison was the only ventriloquist chosen to compete in the semi-finalists for the $1 million prize and an opportunity to showcase his act in Las Vegas. Michael Harrison will perform at this year’s 16th annual Business Excellence Awards on Nov. 23. He says his comedy show is “one of a kind,” and consists of an array of characters and audience participation. Similar to many of the guests attending the event, Michael pursued his passion and is now making a difference in the industry. “Performing for this event is an honour,” said Harrison, “but that doesn’t mean I want them to take me seriously! This night is about big laughs, just as much as it is about big successes.”

The key to great marketing is great clients. Congratulations to our nominated clients.

GOOD LUCK!

The annual Christmas Show hosted by Tradex in 2010.

Positive impact of Tradex In 20 years of operation, Tradex has hosted more than 1,000 events, and over ďŹ ve million guests. The 11,000 square-meter facility is considered to be the most successful small market venue in Western Canada. Their outstanding commitment to the community earned them the Established Business of the Year Award (over 20 employees) in 2010. The multi-use event space hosts approximately 90 events annually, including the West Coast Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;We work closely with our clients to ensure their event runs smoothly,â&#x20AC;? said Vali Marling, director of operations at Tradex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to go above and beyond service standards, resulting in loyal, long-term clients.â&#x20AC;? Winning the award was very exciting for Marling and the Tradex team,

who â&#x20AC;&#x153;have worked very hard to ďŹ ll the building with events and compete with larger Vancouver venues.â&#x20AC;? Recognition was gratifying for facility staff, who recently celebrated their 20th anniversary. Tradex employs more than 225 event and administrative staff, and plans to keep a steady pace in 2012. They already have approximately 70 events on the schedule and are â&#x20AC;&#x153;working on expansion of the building,â&#x20AC;? explained Marling. This includes an on-site hotel and additional parking as well as improving the facilities environmental footprint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are continually working on protecting the environment and currently recycle 80 per cent of the event waste and almost 100 per cent of the food and beverage waste.â&#x20AC;?

Lepp Farm Market located on the AbbotsfordMission Highway.

2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best New Business When it comes to farming and providing fresh produce Abbotsford, Charlotte Lepp of Lepp Farm Market considers it, simply, to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;labour of love.â&#x20AC;? Husband and wife, Rob and Charlotte, grew up on farms in Abbotsford, and appreciate the value of locally grown produce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dream to open a year-round fruit and veggie market began about 10 years ago,â&#x20AC;? says Charlotte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One day we ďŹ nally decided to go for it!â&#x20AC;? The 1,300-square-metre market opened in 2009, on their farm at the junction of Clayburn Road and the Abbotsford-Mission Highway. Charlotte says the vision was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;combine the best of who Rob and I are as people:

lovers of quality food, and ambitious farmers, both with a passion for agriculture.â&#x20AC;? The community took a liking to the business and in 2010, and after just one year of operation, Lepp Farm Market won the award for Best New Business of the Year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a truly humbling experience,â&#x20AC;? recalled Lepp of the win, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because it meant people were grasping the concept of our organic mindset.â&#x20AC;? The market sells a wide variety of locally grown fruits and veggies, and also features an on-site deli and bakery. They currently employ 41 full and parttime staff of whom Charlotte considers to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;one big hard-working family.â&#x20AC;?

Celebrating Nominees Bill Vanderkooi, of Nutriva Group, focuses on healthy food products.

Considered a leader With a four-part corporate code of “open and honest, win win, owning the problem, making a difference,” it is no wonder Nutriva Group has become a proven leader in the community of Abbotsford. Their innovative approach to healthy products won them the Agriculture and Agri-Business Excellence Award in 2010. As an insulin-dependent diabetic, Bill Vanderkooi made it his personal mission to introduce food products that embody natural nutrition. “More foods these days have negative health implications such as cancer, diabetes and heart failure due to obesity,” says Vanderkooi, “and I want our business to help change that.” Being considered a leader in the agricultural industry in Abbotsford

gives the Nutriva Group a “huge sense of responsibility,” remarks Vanderkooi. “We were truly honoured to win the award, as it validates our hard work and makes it all worth the effort.” The Nutriva Group offers a wide range of services such as trucking and specialty ingredient distribution. However, Vanderkooi says they are now “focusing on the fine-tuning of their food operations.” They hope to launch a Vitamin D enhanced egg in January 2012. The egg will be the first in Canada to contain 50% of the recommended daily vitamin intake. “We have seen significant growth in the company, and hope to take our new products to the international level,” says Vanderkooi. The future looks bright for Nutriva Group.

THANK YOU ABBOTSFORD

Brothers, Rick and Daryl, are proud recipients from 2010.

No signs of slowing down Business is booming for brothers Rick and Daryl Francoeur. Their vehicle customizing and collision service firm, 360 Fabrication Inc, is the largest custom one-stop shop in Western Canada, specializing in building concept cars for corporate companies, and overall vehicle restoration for the general public. Among their many successes, the firm was the recipient of the Service Industry Excellence Award in 2010 and coowner Rick Francoeur says that “since then we have doubled our output and are working with some of the largest companies around.” The brothers were shocked when they won the award because “competition included some very reputable companies,” remarked Francoeur.

“Overall it was a very proud moment for us. The award sits on a mantle in the office.” Last year was a highly successful year for 360 Fabrication. They moved to a facility at 31450 Peardonville Road, which is double the size of their previous location, and allows more focus on vehicle customization. They also reached an agreement with CARSTAR vehicle collision service that allows 360 to open nine more locations throughout B.C. Looking to the future, Rick Francoeur hopes to open an audio store in Chilliwack, and expand 360 to Calgary over the next couple of years. “The growth of the company is important,” said Francoeur, “and we really see no sign of slowing down.”

Panthers beat buzzer Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Abbotsford News file photo

Abby Collegiate quarterback Carter Williams connected with Jesse Neufeld on a 54-yard TD pass on the final play to lift the Panthers past Handsworth.

On Saturday afternoon at B.C. Place Stadium, Carter Williams and Jesse Neufeld combined for one of those plays that remind us why we love sports in the first place. With just seven seconds remaining in a first-round AA high school playoff game between the Abbotsford Collegiate Panthers and the Handsworth Royals of North Vancouver, the Panthers had the ball on their own 46 yard line with the score tied 31-31. Williams, the Panthers’

quarterback, took the snap, reared back and heaved the ball downfield. His target was Neufeld, but the senior wide receiver was covered by two Handsworth defensive backs. Both Royals leaped to swat away the ball, but both whiffed. The pigskin fell into Neufeld’s arms inside Handsworth’s 20 yard line, and he ran the ball into the end zone as time expired. The stunning 54-yard passing play – Neufeld’s third TD of the fourth quarter – lifted the Panthers a 37-31 victory. “There’s no quit in the

guys,” Panthers coach Jay Fujimura marveled. “I knew that given the opportunity to win, they’d get the job done.” The Panthers and Royals were tied 8-8 heading into the fourth quarter, but then the offences came alive. In the late going, Abby Collegiate held a 31-23 lead, but Handsworth marched down the field for a TD and got the two-point convert to knot the score. That set the stage for the dramatic Williams-to-Neufeld connection. “It’s a big win for the school,

Aieisha Luyken of the UFV Cascades dives for a loose ball during Saturday’s win over the Winnipeg Wesmen. After cruising past the Bisons on Friday, the Cascades battled a solid Winnipeg squad to a 25-25 deadlock at the half on Saturday. UFV took over in the third quarter, though, out-scoring the guests 30-11 in the frame en route to victory. “It was just a matter of time before our offence got going,” Tuchscherer noted. “At the half, I was X-ing and O-ing in up, and (assistant coach Anthony)

Luyken just said, ‘You know what, forget about the X’s and O’s. We need some energy here.’ They just needed to go out and play. And they did. Our energy level was way higher in the second half.” The Cascades showcased a balanced attack against Manitoba, led by Sarah Wierks and Tessa Klassen with 11 points apiece.

to building our confidence back up to where it needs to be again,” UFV women’s coach Al Tuchscherer summarized. The Cascades women shot the ball extremely poorly in two losses at TRU, and while Tuchscherer wasn’t completely satisfied with their offensive execution on the weekend, shooting 48.3 per cent against Manitoba and 39.4 per cent against Winnipeg represented a step in the right direction.

Dan KINVIG

In hockey, road trips are supposed to be difficult, but the Abbotsford Heat are handling them with ease. The Heat reeled off three wins in a grueling three-games-inthree-nights stretch last week, improving to 8-1-0-0 on the road this season in the process. The Heat opened the jaunt with a 5-3 victory over the Houston Aeros, and followed that up with a pair of wins over the Texas Stars – 3-2 in a shootout on Friday, and 3-1 on Saturday. The common denominator in all RHEAULT three wins was the strong play of forward Jon Rheault and goalie Leland Irving. Rheault scored twice in the win over Houston and added two more tallies in Saturday’s victory over the Stars. The speedy winger currently boasts a six-game point streak, a span in which he has five goals and four assists. Irving was between the pipes for all three wins, and he was particularly excellent on Saturday, turning aside 35 of 36 Stars shots. His 10 wins lead the AHL. The Heat got more good news on Monday, as Krys Kolanos put pen to paper on a new AHL contract with the local club. The 30-year-old winger had watched Saturday’s game against Texas from the press

Cascades win big at home After a less-than-satisfactory performance on the road to open the Canada West basketball season, home cooking seemed to work wonders for the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades. Both UFV hoops squads bounced back from disappointing performances at Thompson Rivers University the previous week, posting blowout wins over the Manitoba Bisons and Winnipeg Wesmen on homeopening weekend at the Envision Athletic Centre. The Cascades women obliterated the Bisons 75-33 on Friday, and followed that up with a decisive 75-51 win over Winnipeg on Saturday. The men were similarly dominant, blitzing Manitoba 101-76 and Winnipeg 89-69. “I think it goes a long way

Another upset win for UFV v-ballers One week after knocking off the topranked team in the nation, the University of the Fraser Valley women’s volleyball team added a win over a No. 2-ranked squad to their burgeoning resumé. On Friday, the Cascades defeated the Capilano Blues, ranked second in the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA), in four sets. Jenna Evans led the way with 12 kills and 22 digs, while Kayla Bruce chipped in with 10 kills. The Blues came back on Saturday to salvage a split, winning in five sets. UFV sits at 8-2 on the season, while

Capilano is 7-1. “We knew we had to be at our best to beat our best to take them down,” said Cascades coach Dennis Bokenfohr, whose team is ranked No. 8 in the CCAA after beating former No. 1 Vancouver Island University last weekend. “Through the first two sets we controlled the play and the girls were executing the game plan as well as can be expected.” The Cascades men’s volleyballers (4-6) followed a similar script, beating Capilano on Friday before falling Saturday. Aaron Flanagan’s 19 kills paved the way for

Retzlaff lights it up for Bearcats Friday’s straight-sets victory. Q In other PACWest volleyball action, a record-setting performance by Jill Retzlaff powered the Columbia Bible College Bearcats women to a weekend sweep of the Douglas College Royals.

paced the offence against Winnipeg, while rookie forward Kayli Sartori notched a double-double with 13 points and eight rebounds. The UFV men, ranked No. 8 in the nation, had coughed up a 21-point third-quarter lead the previous Saturday at Thompson Rivers. They made sure that didn’t happen at home, bearing down in the second half both nights. Joel Friesen led the charge against Manitoba with a ridiculously efficient offensive performance – he scored 24 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field, including 5-of-6 from three-point range. Against Winnipeg, post players Jasper Moedt and Mike James stepped into the leading roles. Moedt (8-for10) and James (7-for-10) combined for 35 points on 75 per cent shooting from the field. Their offensive play was particularly pivotal in the third quarter, when the Wesmen made a 15-2 run to trim a 19-point UFV lead to six. The Cascades responded by pounding the ball inside. “That was a scary 15-2 run they went on, but we were able to answer,” head coach Barnaby Craddock noted. “We got the ball back in to Jasper and Mike, and they were able to finish. It’s a settling influence to get a few layups.” Q The UFV basketball teams are at home again this weekend, and they host the UBC-Okanagan Heat on Friday (women 6 p.m., men 8 p.m.) and Saturday (women 5 p.m., men 7 p.m.).

Hawks, ’Canes victorious From A31

Bulldogs of Nanaimo (Friday, 3 p.m., UBC). W.J. MOUAT 31, TERRY FOX 0 In AAA action, the No. 2-ranked W.J. Mouat Hawks started slowly against the Terry Fox Ravens of Port Coquitlam on Friday. But the Ravens couldn’t slow the dynamic pitch-and-catch duo of QB Daniel Markin and receiver Deion Bain for long. After a scoreless first quarter, the Hawks got rolling. Markin threw two of his three TD passes on the day to Bain, who finished with a team-high five catches for 95 yards. David Park also caught a scoring pass

for the program,” Fujimura said. “It’s a big deal, going to B.C. Place and getting that first playoff win under their belt. But by no means do I think the guys are satisfied with that. We’re going to see how far we can take this.” Williams completed 16 of 26 passes for 268 yards and three TDs, while Dillon McGuire found the end zone twice for the Panthers – once through the air, once on the ground. The Panthers have a tough task in the AA quarter-finals, as they take on the No. 1-ranked and undefeated John Barsby

from Markin, while running back Devin Logan added a 60-yard TD scamper. Afterward, Hawks bench boss Denis Kelly lauded the Bain’s bigplay ability. “Deion’s got a set of skills that are very unique for a high school kid,” he noted. “He’s got the ability to go by you deep, and he’s also very good at fighting for the ball in traffic.” The Hawks travel to the Okanagan this Saturday to take on the Kelowna Owls (Saturday, 2 p.m.) in the quarter-finals.

Hurricanes are awfully glad that Alex Ho is a quick healer. Ho, the Hurricanes’ Grade 10 quarterback, suffered a cracked femur during a game against Mount Boucherie on Sept. 16. The injury was thought to be season-ending, but he recovered on time for Hansen’s playoff opener and led them to a surprising win over the Seaquam Seahawks of Delta. The Seahawks had trounced Hansen 33-6 earlier in the season, but Ho threw for 220 yards and a touchdown pass to Sukh Dhaliwal and rushed for another major on Saturday. Jordon Gmur ran for three TDs, while Harpreet Dhaliwal chipped in with two interceptions. “We weren’t anticipating Alex coming back at all this season,” Hansen coach Paul Gill admitted. “It was an early Christmas present for us.” The Hurricanes advance to face Interior champ Ver non Secondary (Friday, 5:30 p.m., UBC). HUGH BOYD 14, BATEMAN 13 In the aftermath of his team’s loss to Hugh Boyd of Richmond, Bateman Timberwolves coach Rick MacDonald pointed out that a loss is still a loss, whether by one point or by 40. But some losses are a little more painful, and the T-Wolves’ defeat on Friday fell into that category. Trailing 14-7 late in the fourth quarter, Bateman marched down the field and were poised to knot the score after Jorden Best busted loose for a 35-yard TD run. But Boyd’s Daniel Chernov blocked Ricky Vanbugnum’s kick for the extra point. A f t e r w a r d , MacDonald was left to mull over whether or not he should have called for a two-point convert instead. “There was some discussion about that,” he said. “A lot of things can go wrong when you have to snap the ball, place the ball, kick the ball. Not as much can go wrong when you hand the ball off.” Fullback Freddy Lyhne also found the end zone for the T-Wolves, who in spite of Friday’s loss turned in a terrific debut in their first season of full-fledged AA football.

2012 Nissan Altima maintains strong sales momentum With a choice of two powerful, efficient engines, the Nissan Altima Sedan is perfectly positioned for today’s driving environment – maintaining its position as the best selling individual model in the Nissan lineup.Yet as Altima enters the sixth year of its refined fourth generation design, it may be its reputation for quality and value that has cemented its place among the leaders in mid-size sedan sales and segment share. For 2012, Altima Sedan is again available in three well-equipped models designed to appeal to a broad range of buyer needs and budgets – the 2.5 CVT and 2.5 S CVT featuring a 175-horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder and the 3.5 SR CVT with a standard 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine. For 2012, the Altima Sedan exterior again stands out against a field of conservative mid-size sedans with its distinctive, iconic, sporty design. It offers a “dynamic simplicity” with an aggressive stance, distinctive Nissan “T-shaped” grille, powerful front fenders, strong wedge character line, forward A-pillars and Nissan-family roofline.

2012 NISSAN ALTIMA HYBRID In 2011, Altima Hybrid continues to offer the efficiency and fuel economy of a hybrid drivetrain with the performance and excitement typical of any Altima, combining true driving pleasure, distinctive and sporty design and a quality-crafted interior with excellent fuel mileage. The advanced energy drive system shares duties between the gasoline-powered 4-cylinder and the emissions-free electric motor – allowing Altima Hybrid to run solely on electric power.

2012 NISSAN ALTIMA COUPE The 2-door Nissan Altima Coupe offers high quality and high value – while adding an extra touch of aggressive coupe styling for Altima customers seeking a more personal expression of individuality and sporty appearance. The Altima Coupe’s unique exterior design stands out in a crowd of sedan-based 2-door models with its magnetic, perfectly proportioned styling. The smaller size and lighter overall weight also contribute to the Coupe’s sportier driving feel.

IN MEMORIAM IN MEMORY OF NELL ALBION JAN. 16, 1925 ~ NOV. 11, 1998 We seem to see the soft dim light A face we love the best; Recalling her as the sun’s last rays Go down in the far off west. We miss her more as time goes on, We can never close our hearts; And the lamp of our love still burns. Her heart the truest in all the world, Her love the best to recall; None on earth could take her place, She is still the dearest of all. Missed & lovingly remembered by the Family
