Pound closing, dogs moving City working on interim arrangement Vikki HOPES

DINNER

Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford pound operated in Aldergrove by Mainland Municipal Animal Control Services Ltd. is closing at the end of the month. Brian Nelson, manager of the private company that has handled animal control issues since 2003, said the pound, located at 26603 13 Ave., has been operating on a monthto-month basis since its five-year contract with the city ended on Aug. 11, 2008. The City of Abbotsford moved to this form of enforcing animal bylaw issues – such as complaints of barking or uncontrolled dogs – after the SPCA changed its focus to provincial animal cruelty laws. Nelson said he did not submit a tender to renew the contract because he wanted to focus on his other business, Tidy Tanks, which manufactures steel fuel storage tanks. He said the city then asked him if he could continue his work on a month-to-month basis until another service provider could be hired. But Nelson said it became progressively more difficult to run the business in this manner. Several key staff

members left, and prospective new employees didn’t want to work for a company that was operating on a temporary basis. He also didn’t want to invest in items such as new vehicles and equipment upgrades. The company gave its 90-day notice to the city, saying the pound would be permanently closed at the end of December. The closure has prompted posts on an online “pet rescue” message board that the 13 dogs currently housed at the pound will all be euthanized if they are not adopted before Dec. 31. “That’s bogus ... that’s 100 per cent false,” Nelson said. City manager Frank Pizzuto also denied the rumours. “There is no truth to this information whatsoever ... these dogs will either go to another animal shelter, will be adopted or be provided to other animal rights groups if they are interested,” he said. Pizzuto added the city is currently in negotiations with another community regarding the use of its dog pound and expects an interim arrangement in place by Jan. 1. He would not identify the community at this time. A previous Abbotsford News article about dog licensing fees reported that the cost of animal control in 2010 amounted to about $426,000.

Zero-tolerance government feed regulations have hit an Abbotsford company, which was fined $15,000 after minuscule amounts of medication was found in feed for animals intended for human consumption. Clearbrook Grain and Milling Company, through owner Jacob Friesen, pleaded guilty this week in Abbotsford provincial court to three counts of illegally manufacturing a mixed feed from its plant on Enterprise Avenue. The case was initially slated for trial – a situation that federal Crown prosecutor Mike Bozic, speaking at the sentencing hearing, said is rare in these types of cases. Most situations are resolved with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) without charges being laid, he said. But Bozic said the CFIA worked for two years with Clearbrook Grain before the company was in full compliance with Feed Act regulations. The guilty plea relates to

Mill owner Jacob Friesen pleaded guilty to illegally manufacturing a mixed feed, and was fined $15,000. three occasions on which feed tested by the CFIA contained traces of medication in a mix that was not supposed to have any. Federal regulations detail which animals can consume feed with medication – and how much – for things such as promoting growth and preventing disease. Bozic said non-medicated feeds are given to certain

animals in order to protect humans who consume them. He said there is a “zero tolerance” approach to medicated ingredients being found in feed that is prohibited from containing them. This includes feed for turkey and eggproducing chickens. Animals such as broiler chickens and beef cattle are permitted specific

medications in precisely regulated doses. Clearbrook Grain manufactures feed for dairy livestock, poultry and egg producers. Bozic said samples obtained by the CFIA in September 2006, November 2007 and April 2008 were contaminated. The samples contained 6.6 mg per kg, 10.5 mg per kg, and 2.3 mg per kg of specific medications. Two of the instances involved turkey feed, while the third was for egg-producing chickens. Bozic said this resulted from Clearbrook Grain producing a non-medicated feed in a mixer after a medicated feed had been made. Proper procedures were not followed to ensure all traces of the medication had been removed, he said. Repeated follow-ups with the CFIA failed to fix the situation, Bozic said. However, defence lawyer David Renwick said the company spent $2 million in equipment upgrades, but “it just wasn’t working out.” He said the amounts of Continued on A6

NewsBytes ‘BABYSITTER’ COMPLAINTS

Cyrus Centre and others feel impact

Abbotsford Police have received complaints about an adult male offering babysitting services in the community. Const. Ian MacDonald said the man in his 40s has approached parents and children in parks and other public areas, distributing business cards. In one case, the man provided his card to an eight-year-old girl. MacDonald advised parents to do background checks before entrusting anyone with their children. “It is completely reasonable for a parent to request that a background check be completed by a child care provider or that proof of the check be produced as part of the interview process,” he said.

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Staff at an Abbotsford youth drop-in centre are worried about having to cut services in the face of a 50 per cent reduction in donations this season. Luisa Martinez-Salazar, a youth worker at Cyrus Centre on Ware Street, said donations are down over 2009 in all areas – cash, food, clothing and volunteers. She said if the situation doesn’t improve, the centre might have to look at reducing services such as outreach, family mediation, court support and lunches. Martinez-Salazar said people are holding on tighter to their money and time than they did last year. “The economy is not at its best right now, and I guess people are focusing first on their own families,” she said. Cyrus Centre provides food, shelter and support for at-risk homeless youth – ages 12 to 18 – and their families. MartinezThe Salazar said at the same economy is not time donations have dropped, at its best right the number now, and I guess of clients has increased – from people are about 25 to 35 daily last year focusing first at this time, to about 40 or 50 on their own daily now. families Vo l u n t e e r s L. Martinez-Salazar are also down. Last year at this time, there were 24 volunteers helping out once a week at the centre. This year, there are only 11. As well, the centre provides four breakfasts a day for kids who use their shelter, and that goes up to 14 in extreme weather conditions. Lunch is provided for about 20 kids, with about double that for dinner, which is typically provided every day by a church, community group or family that purchases the food and prepares the meal. So far this month, there have been 10 days with no meals provided, meaning Cyrus Centre itself has to step in. Martinez-Salazar said each dinner costs the centre about $60. Donated funds are used to keep the centre running all year, including rent, office expenses, heat, staff, and expenses for the van used to transport clients to appointments and meetings. At this time of year, the centre is also seeking donations for its Christmas Day dinner and gifts such as hoodies, gift cards for food, bus tickets, chocolate and gum. Gloves, socks, and warm jackets are also needed.

Local charities hurting In addition to the Cyrus Centre, two other local charities are also experiencing a drop in donations. The Abbotsford Community Services’ Food Bank and Christmas Bureau has raised almost $224,000 towards its $500,000 goal. This is down almost $36,000 from where the organization was last year at this time, said coordinator Dave Murray. The Salvation Army in Abbotsford is on par with last year for its Red Kettle donations, but mail-in, phone-in and dropoff contributions are down about $70,000, said Deb Lowell, public relations director. “We know that these are tough economic

times for many, but that in turn presents a two-fold challenge for us: the demand for our resources continues to go up and overall donations are down.” The Sally Ann has set a fundraising goal of $475,000.

Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton is the latest MLA to publicly throw his support behind Kevin Falcon for leader of the provincial Liberal party. Falcon has been endorsed by three BC senators and 12 MLAs, including Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen and Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes. “I have always been impressed with Kevin’s willingness to listen and act upon the issues that I have brought to him on behalf of my constituents,” said Dalton in a press release. “He is a man of action and his track record in each of his different ministries, including deregulation, transportation and most recently health, is impressive.” The BC Liberal Party leadership vote takes place Feb. 26, 2011.

when Clearbrook Grain began a process known as “flushing” – mixing 90 per cent of a medicated feed first before emptying the mixer and finishing the remaining 10 per cent without the medication. This ensures all traces of the ingredients are removed before a non-medicated feed is mixed. Renwick said the CFIA has continued to test samples at the mill, and the company has been in compliance for the last two years. In her ruling, Judge Ann Rounthwaite said despite the minute amounts of the medication found in the feed, the zerotolerance approach must be taken seriously. “The message needs to go out to this mill and other mills that they need to follow the specifics of the regulations.” The Crown suggested a fine of $20,000, while the defence recommended $7,500. Rounthwaite said the punishment had to be significant enough to serve as a deterrent, while acknowledging the guilty plea and the company’s efforts in trying to fix the problem. She decided on a fine of $5,000 for each of the three counts.

Anne Hiebert of Abbotsford said her sister first went to the UAE with the Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM) of Canada to assist in an area that was experiencing high infant mortality. She grew to be much adored by all who knew her over the years. “She just became one of of them .... She just blended right in,� Hiebert said.

Gertrude Dyck devoted more than 40 years of her life as a nurse at a medical clinic in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Last month, her four siblings visited the Canadian embassy in the capital city of Abu Dhabi to receive a prestigious medal that honoured their sister’s work over the years. Dyck died in Abbotsford in October 2009 at the age of 75, due to heart problems. The Medal of Independence of the Third Order was be-

Dyck became known by the local people as “Doctora Latifa� – an Arabic word meaning gentle, merciful and kind. She stayed in the UAE until retiring in Abbotsford in about 2004. She never married or had children. Also in her honour, the Gertrude Dyck Exhibition Hall was opened at the National Center for Documentation and Research, also in Abu Dhabi. The hall features a collection of photographs that Dyck took over the years and which were donated by

the family. Hiebert and three siblings – Ernest and Henry Dyck, and Helena Swanson, all from Alberta – were invited to the UAE to attend the opening of the exhibition hall. While there, the Canadian embassy invited them to accept their sister’s medal. “It was quite an honour. It was really exciting,� Hiebert said. Dyck is a previous recipient of the Order of Canada and the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, which are on display at the Canadian embassy.

Human side of equation We’re not surprised that the B.C. Federation of Labour quickly latched onto the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce’s call for an increase in the minimum wage. Labour organizations regularly use wage rates – general or specific – in contract negotiations. What says a lot more is that 85 per cent of chamber members support an increase, while 56 per cent say it should be at least $10 an hour. Minimum wage has always been more a symbolic number than a level of pay designed to provide a livable wage. It was long intended as a starting point for young employees who would no doubt earn more as they advanced in their working life. Today, however, it seems more adults, especially single parents,

are working in low-paying jobs trying to make ends meet month to month. That problem is as much societal as tied to the economy. But the fact remains, the cost of living continues to rise, and pay in B.C. isn’t keeping up. Given that most employers already pay their staff at least $10 per hour, setting B.C.’s minimum to that rate won’t likely have a major impact on the provincial economy. What it will do, however, is indicate to people outside the province that B.C. is moving forward and appropriately meeting the needs of its residents. It’s time for the Liberal government to set aside its traditional beliefs about financial policy and deal with the human side of the equation. It’s a matter of showing respect for B.C. residents.

What makes ‘charge more’ the solution? Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand University studies are wonderful things … if for no other reason than they occasionally make interesting reading. For example, late last week UVic released one urging higher liquor prices to combat drinking, while at the same time advocating free liquor for homeless drunks. Somehow the two don’t correlate. Trying to keep cheap liquor away from people who might become drunks, but once they’re there they get it free? In other words, charge drinkers so much they’ll go broke, lose their homes and families, and then reward them for irresponsible behavior. As a user of the LDB, sufficiently often I might add that I’m on a first name basis with many of the clerks, I have yet to discover the amazingly cheap beer the study claims is available at the government dairy.

Either my palate is fixed only on a certain brand, like not ‘seeing the forest for the trees’, or in ‘my’ liquor store the really low-priced stuff – 77 cent beer – is well-hidden. The report also reveals that beer can be had for 58 cents in private liquor stores – perhaps it’s time to make some new ‘friends’? Good thing those doing the study never venture south of the border, where any grocery store can and does sell Canadian beer, and any other brand your taste buds desire, for way less than half of what we pay here. So if it’s 58 cents a can in B.C., they must be almost giving it away in the U.S. – perhaps they’d like to take our homeless drunks and save us the trouble of doling out free barley sandwiches. Then again, I don’t know many honest drunks who would waste their time with beer when a jug of plonk costs less – and provides more bang for the buck. Raising prices will do nothing to slow those sales. All it will really do is increase the incidence of petty theft and car break-ins. As for combatting excessive drinking by youths – get real man, most kids have more spare change

for ‘fun’ than the average adult. Increasing the cost of booze in any of its forms isn’t going to do anything but take more money out of consumers’ pockets … and we already pay among the highest prices in North America for our buzzes – mild or maximum. They’re also not going to take drunks off the road, drunks out of homeless shelters

...we already pay among the highest prices in North America for our buzzes... or make teenagers teetotalers. So far as kids are concerned, I’d suggest that raising the price of liquor will only make the cost of ‘recreational’ drugs more appealing – which may be cause for yet another university study, funded no doubt by the ever-suffering taxpayer. No matter the product or its price, the

door to abuse is always open. Most of us are equipped, through common sense, personal values instilled as children and genetically, to avoid excesses that lead to alcoholism and drug dependence. For those who are not, increasing the price of the ‘poison of choice’ will make no difference at all, except to their wallets. However, like most ‘studies’ of questionable purpose, designed merely to get the author(s) published to add to his/her/their academic resume, hopefully this one will also find its way into the trash. In the meantime, “expensive” B.C. beer and moderately priced wine will continue to be my beverages of choice, although if, in the spirit of Christmas, someone mistakes me for homeless and offers a few free ones, I won’t say no. But if you haven’t said ‘no’ firmly enough this season, use Operation Rednose, take a cab or walk. Cheap beer is one thing, losing your car for a week or a month is quite another. Merry Christmas, best wishes to all and may the coming year be kind to everyone. markrushton@abbynews.com

Reading Problems – The Solution “Right now in British Columbia one out of five Grade 4 students don’t read, write or have the math skills at a Grade 4 level.” – Premier Gordon Campbell, Oct. 27, 2010

Twenty percent of children cannot learn to read and write by the methods used in B.C. schools. Their reading problems are caused by phonological processing deficits that can only be trained with special technologies. One to two years in reading skills are gained in 8-12 weeks. As seen on The Nature of Things, Scientific Learning’s Fast ForWord programs train phonological processing so the child can process the sounds within words and learn to read. These programs are now available in Langley and Abbotsford for just $29 per session.

Abbotsford News

Janet Wilson (left) has been living with HIV for the past 13 years, and now offers her support to other HIV patients by volunteering at the Lighthouse Centre.

At first glance, Janet Wilson looks like a healthy, vibrant, middle-aged woman. She’s full of laughter, has sparkling eyes and a rosy complexion. But underlying fatigue, depression and debilitating pain caused by nerve damage are constant reminders that she is sick. The Abbotsford woman has been living with HIV for 13 years, and relies on a cocktail of prescription drugs every day to manage her illness. “It’s like you’re carrying this tremendous burden around all the time. It’s a weight that never leaves,” she said. “You feel tainted, like you’re not worthy anymore.” HIV weakens the immune system and destroys CD4 white blood cells, making sufferers highly susceptible to infections and certain types of cancers. Normally, there are between 800 and 1,200 CD4s in a teaspoon of blood. People who are

HIV-positive function with half that amount. Wilson had shingles – a painful skin rash with blisters – for five months. The virus typically heals within two to four weeks. While there’s still no cure for HIV, doctors consider the disease a manageable chronic condition with treatment. However, medication often makes people acutely sick. Wilson takes her chemotherapybased drugs at night in order to sleep through the worst of the sideeffects. “It’s nasty stuff,” she said. “You can feel great one day and then lousy the next.” Wilson’s condition has since motivated her to help others cope with HIV. She joined the Positive Living Fraser Valley Society in 2008, a public, private and corporate funded non-profit organization developed to address the growing need for resources and support for people living with HIV/AIDS in the Fraser Valley.

‘...it can be a beginning’ From A10

She also volunteers at the Lighthouse Centre in Abbotsford, a drop-in facility operated by Positive Living. Her job there is primarily to lend an ear and help clients connect with educational resources. “I wanted to possibly bring some kind of solace to people,” she said. “It feels like an ending to your life, but really it can be a beginning.” The Lighthouse Centre has been operating for three years in different capacities. It’s now open five days a week to HIV-positive individuals and their families. Resource shelves are stocked with a range of books, magazines and pamphlets on transmission and treatment. Clients can also drop in There’s to use computers, participate in no real face to leisure activities and meet with peer HIV, because counsellors. you don’t know The facility caters to a range who has it. of people from all Janet Wilson walks of life. There are couples with children, heterosexuals, homosexuals, seniors, people of faith, and individuals still struggling with addiction. “There’s no real face to HIV because you don’t know who has it,” said Wilson. “Just having someone to listen to your issues and not judge you is astronomical and tremendous. I’ve seen clients go from desolation and depression to being able to cope with the world.” Despite an increase in HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns around the world, a predominant stigma still exists. Lighthouse Centre supervisor Bridget Findlay says the discrimination is comparable to what is found in Third World countries. She attributes this to the lack of knowledge relating to transmission. HIV is not

easily transmitted like a cold or flu. It is spread by blood or other bodily fluids, through unprotected sex and sharing of needles. “Many people have contracted it innocently or through a bad time in their life, a poor decision in the moment, that they very much regret,” Findlay explained. She estimates there are about 350 people living with HIV in the Fraser Valley, and about onethird of them are unaware of their condition. Between one and two people contract the virus every day in B.C. For more information about the Lighthouse Centre, call 604-854-1101 or email tlc@positivelivingfraservalley.org.

F-150 was stopped by police Dec. 10 on the Abbotsford-Mission Highway near Harris Road. Const. Ian MacDonald said the vehicle contained a rifle, a loaded handgun, a loaded magazine, handcuffs, body armour and a Taser, as well as a small amount of methamphetamine. Michael Lee Reid, 34, was charged with offences that include unauthorized possession of a firearm, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a prohibited weapon, and possession of a controlled substance. A 27-year-old female passenger from Mission also faces a variety of charges for being in a vehicle containing weapons. Lee Reid is currently in custody and next appears Dec. 20 in Abbotsford provincial court for a bail hearing. He also currently has a case in Port Coquitlam provincial court on charges of break MACDONALD and enter, possession of stolen property, obstructing a peace officer, and possession of a controlled substance. His next scheduled appearance on that case is Jan. 4. Three men were arrested in November 2009 when Coquitlam RCMP observed them breaking into a business in the United Boulevard industrial area. One of Reid’s co-accused in that case was Justin Norman Larsen, 26, of Abbotsford. He pleaded guilty and was credited last month with the one year he had already served in jail, in addition to receiving a three-year driving prohibition for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and three years’ probation. The other co-accused, Tyson Hayden Wagner, 34, of Port Coquitlam, also pleaded guilty and was credited with six months’ jail time, as well as three years’ probation.

Conservatives expand The BC Conservative Party is trying to raise its profile in the Fraser Valley. Membership has doubled province-wide in the past year to 1,200 members, according to Ben Besler, regional director for the Valley. Last week, the Conservatives held a meeting in Abbotsford and established three new Constituency Associations (CAs) – AbbotsfordMission, Abbotsford-South and Abbotsford-West. The organization also established a CA in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. “We have gone from one to 35,”

said Besler, who believes they will have 85 CAs by the next election. Besler said the next step is to hold a rally in Abbotsford, tentatively scheduled for Jan. 29. “We are hoping to have Randy White speak,” he said. White chairs a tactical advisory group for the BC Conservatives. Plans are also being made to hold a leadership convention in the spring, once all the CAs have been established. The Conservatives have been without an elected leader since Wilf Hanni resigned in June of 2009.

in addictive patterns while trying to stay clean and sober. Terezakis grew up selling drugs in a family that once controlled the majority of the illicit trade in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. His father Tony became addicted to crystal meth, and Andreas was determined not to follow the same path.

ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Monday, December 20, 2010

JOHN VAN PUTTEN

Abbotsford News

After recovering from serious injuries from a bus crash last season, Abbotsford-born goalie Mackenzie Skapski is back in the crease and finding his form.

‘A bump in the road’

Grant GRANGER Black Press

Mackenzie Skapski is still a teenager – a few years away from the reality of adulthood – but he’s a veteran in dealing with the concept of adversity. On Dec. 11, 2009, the bus Skapski and his Fraser Valley Bruins major midget hockey teammates were riding in just south of Williams Lake hit some black ice, skidded out of control and went off the highway, landing on its side. Skapski, a goaltender, suffered the most serious injuries of anyone on the team. He

was taken to B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver with a broken nose and a fractured orbital bone. He had surgery to place a couple of plates in his cheek and to remove a blood clot beside his brain. When he was released from hospital his bruised face was so colourful it looked like a relief map of Asia. These days, Skapski just calls the accident “a bump in the road.” “Everybody faces them, everybody has something they have to overcome,” says Skapski, an Abbotsford native.

Skapski drew on his experience with adversity earlier this fall, when he was cut by the Western Hockey League’s Kootenay Ice. The 16-year-old had high hopes when he went to training camp in Cranbrook in August – as a third-round bantam pick, he came in as a highly touted prospect. But after falling short of cracking the Ice roster, Skapski has turned the disappointment around. He landed with the junior B Ridge Meadows Flames, and after a slow start to the season, his new team has been the beneficiary of his sometimes-

spectacular play. “He put so much pressure on himself (early in the season),” says Flames head coach Tavis Eaton. “He tried too hard, but as soon as he started to have some fun, his play improved.” Skapski’s stats aren’t stellar – six wins, seven losses, a 3.92 goals against average and a .902 save percentage – because of the slow start. But he’s won his last four outings, including an amazing 44-save performance in a 3-2 victory over the powerhouse Richmond Sockeyes last Friday. The next night, on the first anniversary of the

bus accident, he was named the game’s third star for making 29 stops in an 8-2 win at Squamish. “My emotions were quite low,” says Skapski, reflecting on his transition from the WHL to junior B in September. “I thought I’d step in here and do the same job, but it wasn’t like that in the first 10 games. “I felt lost and confused letting in five goals (in one game) down here and that was a depressing feeling. You can’t take anybody at this level lightly. “I’m feeling confident right Continued on A18

Abbotsford Mayor George Peary, Abbotsford Minor Hockey Association past president Lochie Bell and former mayor George Ferguson (from left) were on hand at MSA Arena on Friday morning to cut the cake at the 40th anniversary celebration of the local minor hockey body.

Taylor fourth in Canada Abbotsford golfer Nick Taylor finished fourth in the national order of merit rankings for 2010, which recognizes the top amateur golfers in Canada. Taylor, who finished first in the order of merit in 2008

and 2009, amassed 717.5 points over the course of the season. He trailed North Vancouver’s Eugene Wong (1,290), Mitch Evanecz of Red Deer (936.5) and Toronto’s Albin Choi (777.5). In 2010, Taylor became the first Canadian to win the Ben

Hogan Award, emblematic of the top collegiate golfer in the United States, and helped his University of Washington Huskies to the quarter-finals of match play at the NCAA Div. 1 Championships. He turned pro in October.

now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in a groove. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m having fun right now.â&#x20AC;? So is Eaton while watching his puckstopping protĂŠgĂŠ. Skapski talked to a couple of B.C. Hockey

League (junior A) teams after getting cut by the Ice, but he decided to stick close to home. His hometown Abbotsford Pilots had a pair of veteran goalies returning, but Eaton was interested.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been in regular contact last summer with Skapski, and Flames goalie coach Jamie Fiset had worked with him constantly, texting tips back and forth with the young netminder even while he was in the Iceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camp. It also helped that the Flames had a history of success with a young goalie with WHL aspirations. In 2009-10, Eaton went with then 16-yearold Eric Williams of Langley, who is now playing for the WHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prince Albert Raiders (7-7-2, 3.29 GAA, .910 save percentage). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too many coaches who would take a risk on a 16-year-old goalie,â&#x20AC;? says Eaton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going back to major midget wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have benefited him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played fantastic. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played great.â&#x20AC;? Joining the Flames

is a decision Skapski doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regret. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be honest, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the best thing for me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting more minutes and more opportunities and more shots here,â&#x20AC;? says Skapski. It could be even more fun for Skapski after Christmas. On Boxing Day, Skapski will step on a plane headed to Manitoba to play for Team Pacific (B.C. and Alberta) at the Word U17 Hockey Challenge Dec. 28 to Jan. 4 in Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tournament that features five regional Canadian teams and squads from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Finland, Germany and the United States. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of surreal even now to think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll put on a Team Canada jersey and play against other nations,â&#x20AC;? says Skapski.
