In 1996, Abbotsford city hall announced the need for a new court building. At that time, the Justice Centre Committee determined the provincial court facilities were “inadequate” for the community and had to be expanded. It also recommended a new Supreme Court facility be added to address a growing number of cases. Fifteen years later, nothing has changed. Last week, council identified a new $50-million justice complex as one of the top three priority projects for 2011. It was also on that list in 2010, 2009 and previously. So far, provincial funds have not been available. “Our court facility is a joke,” said Mayor George Peary, adding it was suitable for the city’s population 30 years ago. “A new courthouse is an absolute must, and we should have a Supreme Court. I think everybody realizes that.” While he said the need is obvious, a new courthouse is a provincial matter. “The problem is, by the time they fund health care and education, there’s not much PEARY left for anything else,” said Peary. But that doesn’t eliminate an obvious need. That’s why the city made the justice centre a priority, to keep the issue in the foreground, in hopes the province will take a closer look. “We’ll be talking to minister (Mike) de Jong about it,” said Peary. But there’s another issue besides a bigger building. “If you build a larger courthouse, then you need more judges and a full Crown counsel ... you have to ensure that the support pieces are in place,” said Peary. City manager Frank Pizzuto, who recommended the priority list, said the justice centre would be a hybrid project, hopefully involving the federal, provincial and municipal government. He sees it combining provincial court houses, the community court system, Crown counsel offices, restorative justice, and the Abbotsford Police force, which also needs more room. “The goal is to have justice dispensed more efficiently,” said Pizzuto. However, at this time, there is no plan to move forward, other than an application by the city for feasibility study funding. As for the $50-million price tag, Pizzuto said it’s merely a generic figure. “It could be two or three times that amount,” he said.

Most of the pressures at the Abbotsford courthouse are the result of the physical limitations of the building, say officials in the system. The current courthouse has five court rooms, four of which are designed to handle prisoners securely. “We’re one of the smaller courthouses in the province,” said Crown prosecutor Scott Quendack, adding that it is also one of the oldest in the Lower Mainland. He said the courthouse is not as secure for the movement of prisoners as more modern facilities. In Surrey, for example, the courthouse, pretrial centre and RCMP detachment are all in close proximity, and prisoners are moved via an underground tunnel. Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association, said the Abbotsford courthouse is simply not suitable for trials where

there is a significant security risk, such as those involving organized crime. “Wherever there’s a significant security concern, things get moved to Surrey.” That is far from ideal, because Surrey is already the courthouse most plagued by delay issues in B.C., he noted. Lakshman said the delay for a typical, one-day trial, where the accused is not in custody, is 12 months in Abbotsford. This is considered acceptable, especially compared with the 15-18 months in Surrey. In Abbotsford, he said, criminal cases are generally not dismissed because of lengthy delays. But because court time is at a premium, a courtroom will be scheduled for 14 to 16 hours per day, to ensure the court time is still well used if matters are adjourned or delayed. Court generally sits for only five hours per day, and Lakshman said when there are more cases to be heard than there is time, “plea bargains start happening.”

nch in the courts alleged child rapist in Coquitlam whose trial never went ahead because the system apparently couldn’t afford to translate victims’ statements quickly enough so the accused could understand them. “It is very disturbing that the value of the complainants’ sexual, physical and emotional integrity is less than the cost of translation and transcription,” Judge Marion Buller Bennett ruled last year. She ordered the multiple charges of assault, assault with a weapon, sexual assault, incest and sexual touching of a young person be dropped after a twoyear wait. The judge called it “a tragedy” for all. The case is now being reviewed by B.C. Representative for Children and Youth Mary Ellen TurpelLafond, who called it a “very grave” situation. Continued on A7

NewsBytes SCAM ALERT Abbotsford Police are warning the public about a new version of an old scam that has surfaced in the city. The scam involves a “business” sending an individual a job offer and a cheque. Explaining that they pay $4,000 per cheque, claiming it’s the minimum amount they are allowed to make a cheque out for, they encourage the person to cash it. However, because they are just starting out with the company, the victim is told that only $500 is for them, as a bonus, and they should return the remaining $3,500 to the company in the form of a money order or wire transfer. A few days later, the cheque bounces. “These frauds aren’t new, they are just variations of old ones,” said Ian MacDonald of the Abbotsford Police. He said two cases have already been reported in Abbotsford.

Thousands of cases are at risk of being dropped From A5

“You can see the alarm bells being raised in multiple places in British Columbia in the court system.”

rising caseload and increased complexity of many trials. Coupled with inadequate numbers of Crown prosecutors, court clerks and sher-

deterioration. “The situation has gotten worse, undeniably,” said Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association.

You can see the alarm bells being raised in multiple places in British Columbia... Turpel-Lafond iffs, the report said, the available court time to handle cases is down significantly and is unable to keep pace with the rising demand. In Surrey alone, the report said, it would take three more fulltime judges hearing criminal trials for two years to reduce wait times to acceptable levels. Six new judges have been appointed since October 2010, but others retired so the net increase is just two positions. Front-line prosecutors, lawyers and court staff believe that’s insufficient to stop the

“It’s becoming more dire as the days go on.” Despite the extra judges, the number of adult criminal cases older than 18 months in the system climbed

from just over 2,000 last fall to more than 2,100 by February, 2011. Trials aren’t just lined up far into the future but also stacked three and four deep on the same day – dates that Judge Webb called “hopelessly overbooked.” Staff shortages aren’t the only problem. Physical courtroom space is in short supply in many areas, a result of the government’s 2002 decision to close 24 courthouses, including ones in Burnaby, Hope, Maple Ridge and Squamish, increasing the load on neighbouring courts. Major criminal trials

involving organized crime – such as the “Surrey Six” murders or the UN Gang prosecution – aren’t expected to be lost to delay. But Lakshman warns time-intensive megatrials suck up vast amounts of resources for courts, police and prosecutors, leaving less time to dispense justice for more run-ofthe-mill criminals. He argues any funding saved by the province through justice system austerity is a false economy, considering the money wasted bringing accused criminals to court but not quite to trial.

Cases are being terminated after police have conducted a full investigation and submitted charge recommendations; after Crown has read the file and approved charges; after charges have been sworn in court; and after many appearances before a judge, prosecutor, clerk and sheriff – often with various witnesses waiting to testify. “It’s a complete waste of money,” Lakshman said. “It adds lunacy on top of a ridiculous situation.” -----------------------------NEXT WEEK: VICTIMS IN LIMBO ------------------------------

‘Good news for Canada’ From A5

He judged on Wednesday that “we’re 90 per cent of the way to an election.” Both the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Abbotsford chamber give the budget favourable reviews. The budget is good for business, said the local chamber. “The government has made a solid commitment to let business lead the economic recovery as opposed to stimulus spending. “This is really good news and a positive re-

sponse to the collective call of the Canadian chamber’s pre-budget submissions of which our chamber was very engaged,” said Abbotsford chamber board chair Patricia Sapielak in a press release. “Clearly the economic recovery is well entrenched and the federal government is enjoying a brighter fiscal outlook,” she said. “The government is predicting a bit of a softening in the medium term however the plan to return to a surplus budget in fiscal 2015-16 is still on track, and that is good news for Canada.”

3D ON A LY YS !

TTT But judges’ hands are tied. They are bound by Supreme Court of Canada rulings that firmly limit how long cases can be prolonged before the constitutional right of the accused to a fair trial has been violated and a stay of proceedings must be entered. Defence lawyers can’t drag their feet to get a case tossed. In deciding a delay is unacceptable, judges count only the slowdowns attributed to the system itself or Crown-requested adjournments. They must also conclude the defendant was harmed in some way by the wait. But B.C.’s case backlog now leaves virtually no room for any kind of error that could cause delay. Some cases are quashed after as little

as 14 months, and the applications become much harder for the Crown to fend off when the accused has waited more than 18 months. In Surrey, a typical one-day impaired driving trial is now being set for July of 2012 – a 16-month time period that puts the case close to being tossed from the start. Year-long-plus delays from the outset are now common at many courthouses around the province. The judges themselves tabled a damning report last September titled “Justice Delayed” that warned “thousands of cases are at risk” of being dropped due to too much time elapsing between charges being laid and an accused’s day in court. At that time, there were 17 fewer provincial court judges on the bench than in 2005 – a 12 per cent decrease. B.C. is the only province in Canada where the number of sitting judges decreased over that period, despite a growing population,

Comment on any story online at abbynews.com or email newsroom@abbynews.com Published and printed by Black Press Limited 34375 Gladys Avenue, Abbotsford.

Justice is fundamental As today’s stories in The News illustrate, the province’s court system is in dire straits. There are immensely long delays between the laying of charges and actual trials – up to 18 months or longer in some jurisdictions such as Surrey. At present, there are in excess of 2,000 criminal cases stuck in the system for so long they are in jeopardy of never being heard at all. Those delays are causing judges to throw out cases because the accused’s constitutional rights to a timely trial have been violated. At the very least, when Crown prosecutors see there are more cases to be heard than there is available court time, they are more inclined to consider plea bargaining. While Abbotsford’s provincial court is seeing somewhat shorter waits – an average of about 12 months – the facility is antiquated and unable to provide

the level of security required for some prisoners. That means those cases must be transferred to a more secure facility, such as Surrey – which has one of the most crowded waiting lists in the province. Clearly, this situation cannot continue to languish on the provincial government’s priority list, as it has for years. Abbotsford has required new court facilities for more than a decade. And even if a new justice centre was to be provided, it would need the judges and Crown prosecutors and other staff to operate. There is no doubt that Victoria is focused on the funding juggernauts of health and education. Yet, a functioning court system that delivers speedy and proper justice to those who commit crime, and their victims, must be seen as an absolute fundamental element in a functioning society.

We need smart equipment, and smart people Tom

B.C. Views This summer, BC Hydro starts installing 1.8 million smart meters to eventually upgrade every electricity customer in the province. This is controversial for several reasons. First, they’re doing it now because former premier Gordon Campbell decreed it must be done by the end of 2012. Second, the smart grid is one of several major BC Hydro projects the government exempted from having to undergo a cost-benefit review by the B.C. Utilities Commission. And, of course, there is the budgeted cost of $930 million, coming at a time when BC Hydro is projecting rate increases approaching 50 per cent over the next five years. When I spoke with BC Hydro smart meter project executive Fiona Taylor last week, she naturally had no comment on

the politics. Smart meters are inevitable, she said, since mechanical meters are obsolete and eventually won’t be made any more. Taylor insists the pending rate increases would be even higher without smart meters. BC Hydro estimates the wireless meters will not only pay for themselves, they will produce a net saving of $500 million over the next 20 years. Even some BC Hydro employees were surprised to hear that, with current technology, the utility has no way of knowing your power is out until you phone them. And when line crews come out to repair a local blackout, how do they determine if the repair is complete? They drive up and down the road to see if people have lights on. If you use a backup generator, they might miss you. Smart meters will have “last gasp, first breath” capability, storing enough energy to send a signal that reports the power has gone out, and another signal when it is restored. As it stands, a repair truck can be dispatched to a reported power failure, only to find that the customer’s main breaker has tripped. There is another concern, which is that the brief signals emitted every few

hours to send readings to a central hub are somehow a health hazard. BC Hydro has retained former Vancouver medical health officer Dr. John Blatherwick to respond to this. He notes that smart meter signals are the equivalent of a three-minute cell phone call once

The NDP is nurturing this flame of discontent as it campaigns against smart meters. per day, at a much greater distance. These particular radio frequency signals are similar to those used for digital TV. Such signals are also emitted by the spark plugs of a car, by lightning strikes, in fact all visible light and even the infrared generated with your body heat. But there are people who insist they have a greater sensitivity, and there will probably be some generalized hysteria and system-milking as we saw with

the squabble over a power line through Tsawwassen. The NDP is nurturing this flame of discontent as it campaigns against smart meters. It’s popular among the young, and no less an authority than Lady Gaga is the poster girl to warn against wireless Internet in schools. NDP leadership candidate John Horgan is the party’s ranking power expert. He mainly argues that BC Hydro doesn’t need to spend all this money on smart meters right now. But he is careful not to question the tinfoil hat perspective, and risk alienating the ignorant and superstitious vote. This is a key constituency in parts of B.C. Blatherwick notes that “if you truly are harmed by this level of radiation, you can’t live in a major city.” I’ll say. The computer producing this column is on wireless, one of at least a dozen signals it can detect in my neighbourhood. Our modern comfort is fragile, as Japan reminds us. It needs smart equipment, and smart people. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

To be ‘taken care of’ means more taxes

I am responding to the letter written by Lila Rauh regarding responsibilities of the provincial government to our communities if an earthquake were to strike here. She writes, “So provincial government, ‘Are you ready?’ ” She obviously expects Christy Clark and her government to ensure the safety of all people living here. Her attitude suggests that it is up to others to protect us during natural disasters – and yes, they will come. But I am among many who want less government – not more.

The ancient pax Romana dictum stated, “They rule best who rule least.” It is irresponsible for me to expect either Ottawa or Victoria to be accountable for me if and when natural disaster hits. That’s why I buy insurance. My wife’s father sat and cried when a Saskatchewan tornado ripped apart a new barn he had just completed building. After the tears, he got out his hammer and saw and rebuilt the barn. I happen to live in a condo from where I can watch police cars and ambulances and fire trucks come and

go, and that’s about as much intervention as I want from local and provincial government. Remember what you call for by way of your expectations. To be “taken care of ” by government can only occur if you are more heavily taxed. So yes Lila, let’s ask government to review the building codes, review emergency regulations, have school drills, plan how to get out of a condo, and on and on, but please, no more government and taxes than we now have. Cliff Ratzlaff

Tiered water and 25% drink bottled water daily power rates are unfair to large households Re: “Tiered water rates hit large families hardest,” (Letter-writer) Peter Geering is 100% on the mark in his argument that the new seasonal rates proposed by city council are unfair to large households. In fact, I would argue that BC Hydro’s tiered system of charging for power is also unfair and does not actually help conserve natural resources. These tiered rates (both water and power) are based on the assumption that a small number of people live in a home. These tiered rates are then “marketed” as a way to reduce consumption. However, I would argue that in our large household we actually use considerably less electrical power and water per person than most homes where only two or three people are living. Why should we subsidize the high consumption rates of those who choose to live in small households? Why isn’t the use and conservation of water and power based on the same principles as those of applied to oil and gas usage? If I choose to drive a large SUV that gets poor gas mileage, I pay for it. If I want to pay less for gas, then I buy a much more economical vehicle. No mater what decision is made, we all pay the same price for a litre of gas. So if I choose to live

in a large household, using less water and power per person than the two people living in a similar sized house next door, why should I have to pay more per kilowatt of electrical power or more for a cubic metre of water than they do?

This is neither equitable, nor does it promote conservation of precious natural resources. Both city council and BC Hydro should figure out what these resources cost, and then charge everyone equally. Bryan Born

I read with interest the article written by Jeff Nagel, “Bottled water use slashed in half: survey.” In the piece, Mr. Nagel quotes research conducted recently by Metro Vancouver that indicates that only 11 per cent of those contacted consume bottled water – down 50 per cent from 2008. According to independent consumer products research firm Neilsen Research (www. neilsen.com), which charts actual sales of bottled water in Vancouver and elsewhere across Canada, sales in the

period measured by Metro Vancouver dropped about 10 per cent – a situation largely driven by the recent economic downturn. Further, according to independent market research firm Probe Research (www.proberesearch.com), more than 25 per cent of Canadians, including Vancouver residents, drink bottled water every day. About 70 per cent of them drink both tap water and bottled water. They drink tap water at home and bottled water away from home. Given that less than one per

cent of the water produced by Metro Vancouver for its residents is consumed for hydration purposes, it is unlikely that the consumption of bottled water has any impact on municipal system usage. We encourage Vancouver residents to drink more water for better health, whether bottled or tap. Why? We don’t compete with tap water. We compete with other bottled beverages. John B.

The only negotiated contract the B.C. Teachers’ Federation has ever signed is running out June 30, and prospects for a new one are growing dimmer. At a news conference at the union’s annual convention in Victoria on Monday, BCTF president Susan Lambert refused to specify how large a salary increase the executive will propose as negotiations get underway. But she said B.C. teachers have fallen from third highest-paid in Canada to eighth since 2006. “For example, a beginning teacher working in Golden right now, right on the B.C.-Alberta border, makes almost $10,000 a year less than a beginning teacher in Banff,” Lambert said. “At the top of the scale

BCTF president Susan Lambert is flanked by representatives from all 60 B.C. school districts at the union’s convention in Victoria on Monday. it’s even worse. An experienced teacher in Banff earns more than $16,000 a year more than a teacher with the same credentials in Golden.” Lambert called on the B.C. government to change the “net zero” compensation mandate imposed two years ago when the province was hit by a global recession. Education Minister George Abbott said Monday the net zero

mandate applies to the BCTF as well as other unions. The restriction that wage increases can only be approved if they are offset by other savings has produced agreements with about twothirds of provincial employees so far, he said. The BCTF signed its current five-year deal when the provincial government was in surplus and offering signing bonuses to

all the government unions. Teachers got signing bonuses of $3,700 with another $1,000 each for a settlement longer than three years, as well as pay and benefits increases totalling 16 per cent over five years. It was the only time since the BCTF was turned into a union by the Social Credit government in the 1980s that a contract was negotiated rather than imposed by legislation, usually after a strike in public schools. Lambert said a recent survey of teachers shows that class size and special needs support, not money, is the top issue for teachers. The BCTF is awaiting a ruling from the B.C. Supreme Court this spring on its challenge to legislation that removed class size and support staff levels from the teacher contract.

Mountie reprimanded Code of conduct hearing held

Carol AUN Black Press

A former Mission Mountie has been given a written reprimand and docked one dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pay for failing to properly investigate a shots fired call more than two years ago which left Lisa Dudley clinging to life inside her home while her boyfriend, Guthrie McKay, lay dead in the same house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all her life was worth,â&#x20AC;? said Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom Rosemarie Surakka. It was hard for the Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family to remain silent during the code of conduct hearing last Friday, but protocol had to be respected, according to Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stepdad Mark Surakka, who was disappointed with the outcome.

The adjudication board heard an agreed statement of facts before making a ruling, however, Mark points out a number of key issues were omitted. White responded to a shots fired complaint on Sept. 18, 2008, but he neglected to properly investigate the neighbourhood when he arrived or speak with the caller. He left the scene after only being there for about 10 minutes and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow up the next day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;911 is a lifeline to people,â&#x20AC;? said Mark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was Lisaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and it was neglected.â&#x20AC;? Two reviews were conducted, but it was civilian investigators from the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team who uncovered an audio

recording of White laughing with a dispatcher about the call before he attended. According to a report from the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, White had already predetermined the validity of the shots fired call before he even attended the neighbourhood. A neighbour found Dudley four days later, but she died from her injuries en route to hospital.

$313,000 in ICBC road investment

Most Abbotsford and Mission residents have seen the corridor-widening improvements along Old Yale Road from Marshall Road to Dina Place. Those are among the 12 road improvement projects ICBC invested in for Abbotsford and Mission in 2010. ICBC launched the road improvement program in 1989 and since then, has invested approximately $100 million in projects across B.C. In 2010, ICBC invested approximately $2.6 million in projects in the Fraser Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Safer roads lead to fewer crashes and help prevent injuries and death, which also translates into lower claims costs and helps keep rates stable for our customers,â&#x20AC;? said ICBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Pump, manager of the road improvement program. A 2009 independent evaluation concluded that for every dollar invested, ICBC and customers see a return five to 12 times the investment. For example, in Abbotsford, ICBC invested $36,000 for improvements that included channelization enhancements and improved signage, delineation and pavement markings on Highway 11 from Clayburn Road to Harris Road. The 2009 evaluation showed the improvements resulted in a 61 per cent drop in property damage claims and a 49 per cent drop in severe injury crashes, saving $221,900 over two years and $548,900 over five years. Projects underway or completed in 2010 in Abbotsford include: T Old Yale Road â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marshall Road to Dina Place, corridor widening T Marshall Road and Horizon Street, traffic signal installation T George Ferguson Way and Trethewey Street, left-turn lanes installed T Industrial Avenue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; McCallum Road to Highway 11, corridor improvements T Area wide, 14 locations, signal visibility upgrades T Whatcom Road and Mountain Drive, traffic calming measures T Highway 11 at Old Clayburn Road, traffic signal installation T Highway 1 at Whatcom Road, traffic signal installation

As a result, the RCMP has adopted a policy to treat shots fired calls as a priority and attending officers must contact the caller. Also, B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Solicitor General Shirley Bond also announced this week police will no longer be investigating police. Instead, a civilian unit will be established by the end of the year to probe cases involving serious injury or death.

Bottled water use cut in half: Survey Metro declares success in campaign to encourage tap water consumption Jeff NAGEL Black Press

Metro Vancouver is declaring victory in its campaign to get more people to shun wasteful bottled water and drink tap water instead. A new survey has found roughly half as many people using bottled water as did in 2008, when the region set a goal of cutting bottled water use here by 20 per cent by 2010. The Mustel Group telephone survey found 11 per cent of respondents say they primarily use bottled water, compared to 21 per cent in 2008, while 85 per cent say they mainly use tap water, up from 74 per cent previously. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We actually got a 50 per cent reduction so it was well beyond what we expected,â&#x20AC;? said Surrey Coun. Marvin Hunt, who sits on Metroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water committee. The campaign, which used the slogan â&#x20AC;&#x153;Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health drink â&#x20AC;&#x201C; always on tap,â&#x20AC;? raised the hackles of bottled water sellers. But Metro politicians like Hunt maintain the campaign was worth-

while because high rates of bottled water use meant unacceptable numbers of plastic bottles were ending up in the landfill. One report estimated more than 23 million plastic bottles a year werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being recycled and were instead ending up in Metro Vancouver landfills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that even the ones being recycled still carried a heavy carbon footprint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The issue was reduction of waste and reduction of the creation of the plastics in the first place so those resources can be used for something much more beneficial,â&#x20AC;? Hunt said. Metro officials were also irked by the growing trend toward bottled water use when they had just spent $800 million in taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dollars on a major upgrade of the water system. The region has always maintained its water supply is among the cleanest and safest on the planet. But completion of the new SeymourCapilano Filtration Plant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the recommendation of health

A new survey finds about half as many people using bottled water now as compared to 2008.

officers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; means water from the North Shore reservoirs that occasionally looked murky is now being filtered, removing an occasional esthetic objection. Hunt noted it also means less chlorine is added to disinfect the water, which was another objection some had about the taste of tap water. Ninety per cent of those surveyed now agree the tap water quality is excellent or

pledged to eliminate bottled water sold in their buildings. Metro is also spending $200,000 this year to acquire two water wagons that can be taken to major events as a mobile place where people can refill water bottles. Despite the survey results, Nestle Waters Canada claimed a five per cent increase in bottled water sales last year, although it had no data specific to Metro Vancouver.

Abbotsford …… It’s my home town and a community that I am proud to be a part of. Living your entire life in one town gives you a different perspective. You want to make your town better, you want to make a difference. I have taken that philosophy and applied it to all areas of my life. Whether it be on the executive of Abbotsford Baseball or the Abbotsford Cardinals, coaching minor sports, membership at Ross Road Community Church, or raising my 3 wonderful boys with my lovely wife, I strive to do my best. The same holds true for the 16 years I have spent selling Real Estate. My goal is to offer every client a Real Estate experience that they will not forget and that they will tell others about. To find out more give me a call and remember “Rob knows Abbotsford”.

“Banking Can Be This Comfortable!”

Foreign capital seeks safe haven

The strength of BC’s multi-family housing market, coupled with the stable Canadian economy in general, continues to attract foreign capital seeking a safe haven. Offshore buyers seeking quality assets are aggressively competing with local private buyers in the Metro Vancouver multi-family market. Investment-grade rental apartment buildings in Metro Vancouver traded at significant premiums in 2010, with more than $264 million spent on 20 transactions during the year. Not including the sale of the $274-million Wosk portfolio in 2009, total multifamily dollar volume in 2010 exceeded 2009 ($207 million) and 2008 ($164 million) totals. Deal velocity has remained steady since 2008. Avison Young tracks multi-family investments greater than $5 million, and these are some of the key trends noted in Avison Young’s Winter/Spring 2011 British Columbia Multi-Family Investment Report, released this week. “While private investors dominated the buying and selling sides, some institutional investors executed disposition strategies involving their multifamily assets,” commented Avison Young principal Rob Greer.

I have been a resident of Abbotsford for over 34 years and an Abbotsford Notary for over 22. I specialize in real estate transactions, Wills and Powers of Attorney. There is none more experienced. Whether you are buying or selling real estate, whether it is bare land, a house, townhouse, condo or mobile home, before you make the decision for your representative, give my office a call. You will find us not only knowledgeable and professional but also accommodating to your schedule, if necessary.

“Institutional vendors are taking advantage of strong pricing and robust demand for quality multifamily buildings, which allowed them to realize profits and redeploy capital in markets with higher yields.” Bond market volatility and historically low interest rates led many landlords to refinance their assets with some deciding to fix their rates up to nine months in advance rather than face the chance of higher rates on renewals later this year. “A lack of supply of high-quality product continues to restrain potential deal velocity, while those trophy assets that do come on the market generate significant interest. Capitalization rates in Metro Vancouver in 2011 are expected to remain near the historic lows of 2010,” adds Greer. Cap rates for quality rental buildings in Vancouver will remain in the low four per cent range, while properties in Burnaby and the Tri-Cities should realize cap rates of around five per cent. Multi-family assets in the Fraser Valley, from Surrey to Chilliwack, should see cap rates of six per cent-plus in 2011. Premium trophy assets, particularly in Vancouver, could see compressed cap rates in the three per cent range.

I’ve been with Remax Little Oak Realty for 17 years and have been in the top 10% Medallion club for the last 8 consecutive years. The majority of my business comes from my past clients and their referrals. Their satisfaction ensures my future success. I offer a unique system of helping my clients buy or sell properties that make them feel confident and secure with no pressure.

Abbotsford News

Inspired by disturbing and haunting artwork, an Abbotsford student has his first collection hanging on the walls of a prestigious Vancouver gallery. Artist Scott Douglas calls it an honour to have his work displayed in the Buschlen Mowatt Gallery, which specializes in modern and contemporary art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am incredibly lucky to have been picked up by them,â&#x20AC;? says Douglas, who is graduating from the University of the Fraser Valley next month with a bachelor of fine arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They never show new artists, or even local artists for that matter. This is a rare and big thing.â&#x20AC;? His exhibit is called Locus Suspectus, which

explores the origins of fear and the uncanny. The title, referring to the Latin words location and suspicion, examines how oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship to space can lead to distrust and anxiety. In each work, a ghostlike figure is present in a muted scene with minimal lighting. Douglas isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure why he is drawn to eerie atmospheres â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he calls them â&#x20AC;&#x153;irresist-

ibleâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but plans to develop and refine the style throughout his career. He calls it his niche. The Yale Secondary graduate has dabbled in photography for about two years. He originally started by trying to recreate the abstract paintings of British painter Francis Bacon through photography. The works of American filmmaker,

director, artist and musician, David Lynch were also inspirations, adds Douglas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The surreal nature [of his work] gives such an uncomfortable feeling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I just love it.â&#x20AC;? The exhibit opened on Thursday, March 3 and will run until Sunday, April 3. Buschlen Mowatt Gallery is located at 1445 West Georgia St. For more information call 604-682-1234.

Taboo show seminar

Ashley WRAY Abbotsford News

Satisfaction, expectations and balance are the topics being discussed by a local psychologist at this weekend’s fourth annual Taboo Naughty but Nice Show at Abbotsford Tradex, 1190 Cornell Street. Dr. Lyne Piché, who has 13 years of experience, will be giv-

ing three seminars at the event. She will focus on helping couples build and maintain their intimacy when discussing sexual satisfaction. Intimacy is something that is often lost in the hustle and bustle of life, said Piché. Another important issue is discussing each person’s expectations. It helps avoid any unreal pre-

sumptions that could potentially harm a relationship. And finally, it’s important to bring balance to the issues that have been identified as a couple. Piché believes the trade show is the perfect, non-threatening environment to have discussions that some might not have otherwise. Her seminars, called Enhancing Sexual Satisfaction, take place

on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and again on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. She will also have an information booth at the trade show. The event runs Friday, March 25 from 5 p.m. to midnight; Saturday, March 26 from 12 p.m. to midnight and Sunday, March 27 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For tickets and more information visit www.tabooshows.com.

The details what’s it all about?

So You Think You Can Sing? Lip Sync Competition features videos of more than 25 local residents lip syncing their favourite tunes for a chance at a share of $2,000 in prizes.

Life after Lip Sync

As of Thursday, March 17, their short videos will be posted online at abbynews.com.

UFV offers a number of courses to help you through life

In addition, each week for five weeks, the contestants will be featured in the print version of The News and online, answering quirky questions to reveal their personalities.

Okay, so you can lip sync. But perhaps you need some other skills to round out your resumé.

The competition is split into three categories: adult, secondary school and middle school.

Being a lip sync contestant does indicate that you’re a bit of an extrovert; a budding performer who’s ready to take it to the next level.

Season swept away

Sports

In Brief TENNIS SIGNUP

Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Pilots played four close games, outshot their opponent in two of them, but still lost the Pacific International Junior Hockey League best-of-seven championship series in a sweep. “We played very well. We could have won any one of those games,” said coach Jim Cowden. “We didn’t get the breaks you need.” The Richmond Sockeyes ended the series with a 4-2 win on Tuesday night at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre. Cowden pointed out that all four games were one-goal affairs, with two empty netters adding to the Sockeyes’ differential. The Pilots were without leading scorer Riley Lamb, a sniper who finished third in PIJHL scoring with 62 points. He hurt his shoulder in the first period of Game 3, and never got back into the series. Abbotsford still managed to outshoot Richmond 43-31 in the fourth game, but only Brett Kolins and Kevin Lourens managed to bulge the twine. “It just was not meant to be,” said Cowden. Monday in Richmond the Pilots lost 4-2. Jarrett Martin and minor hockey affiliate player Devon Toews scored for Abbotsford. The Pilots should return many of the core players who led the team to a 26-14-6 record and the top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference. “We’re going to be strong next year,” predicted Cowden, who said he too will be back for the next campaign. The Pilots will host the Cyclone Taylor Cup, the provincial Junior B championship tournament, and the coach wants the Pilots to shine as more than just the host.

Local tennis players are invited to participate in singles and doubles tennis leagues, which begin play in April. The leagues offer an opportunity to play the sport at one’s own skill level. Players or teams will play at least six matches on local courts. Registration deadline is March 31. For information see www. bctennisleagues.50megs. com.

JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News

Richmond Sockeyes goaltender Aaron Oakley makes a stop on Pilot Justin Dorey on Tuesday night. “We’re going to build for that, and our goal is to win everything,” he said. He expects to have Lamb back, as well as Lourens, who was 11th in league scoring with 49 points, including an impressive 28 goals. Adam Rossi, Chris Vinette, Travis Grewal,

Brandon Daase and others will give the Pilots an impressive, veteran lineup. “We had a good year, and you couldn’t ask for a better bunch of kids,” said Cowden. “We’ll do our wind-up, and the start rebuilding.”

Abby in contention for B.C. title The Abbotsford Hawks put themselves in a great position to win the Tier 1 bantam B.C. championship tournament they hosted this week. With a 3-1 record in round-robin play, and the only game left against a winless Nanaimo (0-4) squad that had been the tournament whipping boy, the host Abbotsford squad looked like a virtual lock to advance to Wednesday night’s

championship game as the home team. Results of that game were not available at press deadline. See www.abbynews.com for details. The Hawks started the tourney strong, with opening-day wins over the touted Burnaby Winter Club (3-2) and Prince George (7-3) on Sunday. Monday night brought a matchup with Kamloops – the favourite

to win the tournament – and a 5-3 loss. “We became individualistic, and they capitalized,” said Abby coach Troy Campbell Tuesday was a matchup with a gritty Cloverdale squad that had employed a trapping style to keep games close. The tactics had earned Abby’s Valley rivals two wins and a tie headed into the game – including a 2-2 stalemate

CHAMPIONS

with vaunted Kamloops. “They tried to frustrate us, and slow the game down,” said Campbell. But Abbotsford used bursts of speed and soft chips to get behind Cloverdale’s checkers, and they lit the Cinderella squad up for a 5-3 win. Jake Virtanen had two goals and an assist in the game, and Mitch Skapski had a goal and an assist.

Master sticking with it

Thaynoku!

Just because your knees get a little creaky and your back doesn’t bend too well doesn’t mean you have to quit curling. You just switch to a stick delivery and rock Jim on. Cliff Christianson, a youthful 85 years old, is proof positive that even if there’s snow on the roof, there can still be fire in the furnace. He won the Abbotsford Masters Bonspiel held March 11-13, with his rink of Gary Snowden, Ron Ferguson, and Rudy Hanni. They knocked off Bruce Lonsbury of Langley in the final game in a last-rock thriller. This (probably) marked the first time a host team has won this spiel, as Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association rules require the hosts to enter only club teams (randomly selected), while the visitors can hand pick their rinks. Milt Sinclair’s local team of Derek Robinson,

Anderson

Jim Anderson, and Doug Carvey also had a pretty fair run in master’s play. They qualified for provincials in both the Curl BC and PCMCA zone playdowns and went on to win the Guy Philps trophy, emblematic of PCMCA supremacy. This is the first time since 2003 that an Abbotsford team has won the historic championship, which has been contested since 1962. Sinclair, ever humble, credited his strong sweeping front end with much of his success. “I would be nothing without them,” he stated. “Seriously, these guys are studs. Hebert and Kennedy could take lessons from those guys.” Be reminded that the semi-annual general meeting of the Abbotsford Curling Club takes place at the club April 6 at 7 p.m. If you don’t show up and let your opinion be heard, you can’t really complain about the results. Come on out and depose the president. (Please!)

The Abbotsford Pilots players, coaches and management would like to thank all of their fans for their tremendous support of the team. Pilots volunteers are the backbone of the organization and are to be applauded. Adults: $9 Students $6 Seniors $6 Children 7-12 $5 A SPECIAL THANKS to the many business partners in Abbotsford who make hockey an event for all.

A sand dam is a reinforced concrete wall built across a seasonal river bed. It holds underground water in a sand aquifer, collecting water behind it. Its size ranges from one to four metres in height and 90 metres across. Each dam holds up to 10 million litres of water, which is collected in numerous ways, including a pipe built into the wall, a take-off well, or holes dug in the sand behind the dam. Each structure supplies a clean source of water for people, animals, and crops. Sand dams are ideal to harvest water in rural communities because they can be built by the community, are low cost, require minimal maintenance, save water from evaporation and provide quality water even in drought conditions. For more information, visit http://utoonidevelopment.org/.

between self-help groups in different villages. The government-registered groups apply to UDO for a sand dam. Based on a number of variables, including how far the nearest water source is, UDO decides which groups to fund and assist. Currently, there are 130 applications. The dams cost $8,000 each to build, which covers the price of materials, material transfer and technical knowledge. Last year, MCC funded 30 sand dams in eastern Kenya. This year, it’s 35.

Once the dams are built, it takes approximately three years of sufficient rain for them to become fully functional. Without rain, they are useless. Once it becomes a mature structure, the dam can provide a village with water for seven to 10 years. Only six have failed in 33 years. A successful dam affects the entire circle of life, said Mukusya. “Almost everything in these regions depend on water.” They benefit local crops, animals and the health of villagers. They also allow kids to go to school because they are no longer making long trips for water collection. “When there’s no dam, the question is: how many kilometres will you go?,” said Mukusya. Seventy per cent of those trips are made by women, often travelling over 20 kilometres to the nearest water source. The water is carried in a jerry can attached to a rope across the woman’s head. The can lays on her back as she walks, often with a baby strapped to her front. Sometimes the journey can take an entire day, or even two. The closer the water source is, the more frequent the trip is made, said Mukusya, estimating four to five visits a week. Long trips are only done once or twice in a week. In addition to the intense heat, there are many risks involved with such a long walk. When the woman is gone, the children typically go without food.

JOHN VAN PUTTEN

Abbotsford News

Joshua Mukusya and his wife Rodah were recently in Abbotsford to discuss the sand dams in Africa. Or the woman is raped. If the mom is unable to go, she will send a child, who will miss school. Building a sand dam in a village eliminates these long, dangerous treks. “I feel satisfied when I see children going to school,” said Mukusya. “It inspires me to do more.” And it’s also made his mother happy, he said. “It was a promise to my mother. Now I can go to her and pump water to her house and say, ‘There, I’ve brought back the water.’ And that makes me happy.” For more information on the projects check out www.mcc.org or www.utoonidevelopment.org.

The family would like to thank all medical professionals and friends for their kindness and compassion towards Maria, especially her faithful neighbour, Karen Brown, many friends and neighbours in her apartment building, and her trusted friend Eileen. Maria will be deeply missed by all of us but we celebrate because we know that she accepted God’s gift of a ticket to heaven, not based on her merits but because of His suffering, loving kindness, grace and mercy.

Bryan Neil Volden

Our Beloved MufÀn Man It all started over coffee. The aroma of mufÀns and coffee will forever remind us of our loving husband, father and grandfather, Bryan Neil Volden. Born on June 14th, 1945 in Penticton BC to Adolph “Duffy” & Della Volden, Bryan grew up with his brother Bruce. After graduating from Pen High, Bryan attended Vancouver Vocational Institute and graduated with a certiÀcate in Culinary Arts. Creative at heart, he had a natural gift which allowed him to compete in the National Culinary Olympics and won the Top Award in 1965. He worked in numerous elite hotels and venues including the World’s Fair in Montreal in 1967. Being an extremely social guy, working for someone else cramped his style. His parents helped him buy his Àrst restaurant The Burger Bar in Mission, BC. One night after church, he met Solveig over coffee. Bryan’s coffee was the method to which he won the hearts of many including Solveig. It took Bryan 5 weeks to propose. They were married in Oct. 1974. Over the years, while owning the various family businesses, they worked side by side as a team. They raised their two daughters Rebecca & Tiffany in Abbotsford and attended Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly and later Christian Life Assembly in Langley. He owned the MufÀn Break and thus became known as “The MufÀn Man”. Later, Towers Cafe at the McCallum Medical Towers where he felt that many, after seeing the doctor, came in for a cup of coffee as well as a “second opinion”. On March 19th 2011, Bryan passed away in ICU at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Surrounded by his loved ones. The Volden’s are so grateful for the amazing care he received from the staff in the ICU. Bryan was a loving husband, father & grandpa. He will be dearly missed by so many but most of all by his wife of 37 years, Solveig, his daughters Rebecca (Oscar) Del Pozo, Tiffany (Brandon) Waardenburg. Grandchildren, Antonio, Trysha, Isaiah, Bella & Jacob. His brother Bruce (Janey) Oliver & Casey Volden of Penticton, BC and extended family members. Bryan had a heart for people and for God. From the way he connected with people, to how he served in the church and community. He volunteered with care and compassion at the MCC in the kitchen as well as pricing donations in the thrift store. He always had an encouraging word, a warm smile, an infectious laugh and a gentle touch. His understanding nature has touched us all and his impact on this earth has made a difference in eternity. The Memorial Service to celebrate Bryan’s life will be held on Saturday March 26th at 1pm at Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly, 3145 Gladwin Rd. Donations in memory of Bryan may be made to: www.bcteenchallenge.com
