One-day option not likely to be exercised in Mission

CLOCKS GO FORWARD A23 Daylight Savings Time goes into effect at 2 a.m. on Sunday

Tom FLETCHER and Vikki HOPES Black Press

Although the Mission school district is among those across B.C. whose teachers could exercise their option for a one-day strike next week, that is not likely to happen. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) has promised it will not strike for the first three days of next week, and Education Minister George Abbott said he hopes to have government legislation imposing a cooling-off period in place by Thursday, March 15. “It appears that schools will be open on Monday and that’s a wonderful thing,” Abbott said Thursday. “And barring some change of mind (by the BCTF), they will also be open on Tuesday and Wednesday.” Once the legislation is in place, it will be illegal for teachers to conduct any further strikes until Aug. 31. If they do, the BCTF would be subject to a fine of $1.3 million a day, as well as $2,500 a day for each BCTF officer who orders strike action, and $475 a day for any teacher who strikes in defiance of the legislation. The Abbotsford school district is not impacted by any job action that might occur next week. It is among more than half of the districts across the province that begin their two-week spring break on Monday. About 1,000 teachers across Abbotsford took part in the three-day province-wide strike at the beginning of this week, but returned to the classrooms on Thursday and Friday.

Public awareness of problem key to solutions Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

More than 60 people turned out for the Fraser Valley Community Action Team’s (FVCAT) rally to protest and bring awareness to the sexual exploitation of children and youth. The public event was held on Tuesday at the Abbotsford Youth Commission office, in front of Abbotsford city hall. The rally included a march down South Fraser Way as well as a series of guest speakers. “Sexual exploita-

tion of youth in the Fraser Valley is an issue which we are aiming to raise awareness about,” said Bev Olfert, chair of FVCAT. Josie Kane, a clinical counsellor at Abbotsford Addictions Centre, said youth continue to be exploited sexually in exchange for alcohol, drugs, money, food and shelter in the Fraser Valley. “Without access or awareness of services for youth to make positive changes and get the help they need, this cycle of exploitation can continue,”

she said. C h r i s t i n a H e n d e r s o n , of Abbotsford Community Services, was on hand to lead the crowd on its march. She works with sexually abused youth as part of the Stop Exploiting Youth program offered at ACS. Henderson told the crowd that exploited youth include anyone under 19 who trades sex for resources. She said that includes escort services, brothels, street prostitution, pornography and Internet sex. “They often believe

A Walk for the Rice Reason, hosted by Hunger Response International (HRI), acknowledges the distance many women and children in developing countries have to walk daily for food, water and fuel, says HRI director Lorri Sawatsky.

they are choosing to be sexually active when, in fact, their youth, inexperience and often mental health or cognitive issues are being taken advantage of through manipulation, deceit, persuasion, threats, violence and grooming for sexual abuse.” Henderson added there is a “ton of shame” felt by those kids who fall into this sexual trap. She said the public needs to realize that sexual exploitation exists in this community. They have to accept it, before any solutions can be

found. She told parents to pay attention to their children and to their children’s friends, to monitor web use and educate themselves about the warning signs of exploitation. Henderson also has a message for the atrisk youth in the community. “There is a whole community out here to support you. We believe that you are beautiful and worthwhile and there is hope for a better life.” For more information call Abbotsford Community Services at 604-859-7681.

Emails fly on sex show poll An online Abbotsford News poll about the Taboo sex show resulted in an email campaign to attract respondents for the “no” side. A mass email was reported to have been received by people as far away as Los Angeles, California. The poll, posted on The News’ website (abbynews. com) from March 2 to 8, asked the question: “Do you approve of the return of the Taboo sex show?” As of press deadline early Thursday afternoon, more than 1,000 respondents had replied, with 75 per cent indicating they were opposed. On Wednesday afternoon, before the email campaign began, the poll had received about 350 votes, with 57 per cent in favour. About 300 responses is a typical participation rate. A copy of the mass email was forwarded to The News by a reader. The author urged people to vote no in the poll because the yes side was ahead. “Let’s get behind this and prove them wrong ... You can only vote once (per computer). Find as many computers as you can and get voting,” the writer indicated. “Pass this on to your friends and let’s make a difference.” A woman living in Los Angeles phoned the newsrooom Thursday morning to say she had received the email from a pastor. Canwest Productions, which runs the Taboo Naughty but Nice Sex Show, announced last month that it was cancelling its fifth annual show at Tradex in Abbotsford. It cited two reasons – problems with its liquor licence and opposition from “Christian fundamentalists.” Canwest then announced last week that it is working with the provincial government to address its liquor licence issues, and the Taboo show will return to Abbotsford this year, from May 11 to 13. The News poll is changed every Thursday afternoon. It now invites responses on the municipal tax increase.

OxyContin phase-out will bring ‘panic’ for addicts B.C. moves to curb abuse of prescription drugs Jeff NAGEL Black Press

B.C.’s decision to clamp down hard on prescription access to oxycodone-based narcotic painkillers has prompted concern that desperate addicts may turn to other drugs or crime. OxyContin, dubbed “hillbilly heroin” on the street, is being phased out by its maker and replaced with OxyNEO, which contains the same active ingredient but comes in a different pill form that’s harder to crush and then snort or inject. B.C.’s health ministry said Wednesday it will no longer cover OxyContin through PharmaCare as of March 8 and new prescriptions for the replacement OxyNEO will be approved only in exceptional cases through a special authority program. Dr. Caroline Ferris, who works at the 30-bed Creekside Withdrawal Management Centre in Surrey, said more than onethird of incoming detox patients

$590

are addicted to prescription drugs and many of them are on OxyContin. “It’s a big problem,” she said, predicting a rise in armed robberies and other crime as the last of the drug vanishes later this month and its street price skyrockets. “I think there will be a lot of panic,” Ferris said. “We’re probably going to see more break-ins to pharmacy warehouses and other places stockpiling the last of the OxyContins.”

Most illicit users will simply switch to heroin, she predicted. Legitimate patients will still have access to either OxyNEO or other opioids, Ferris said, adding she supports the province’s decision to try to curb abuse of the prescription drug. “It’s just as well that this stuff comes off the market,” she said. OxyContin sells for $50 to $60 per 80-milligram tablet on the street, where it trades like currency. Ferris said part of the problem is that plenty of people obtain the drug by prescription who don’t actually use it themselves. Some who have good benefit plans get it for free and pass it on to friends or family who would have to pay more for it. Ferris said others on welfare may get OxyContin free through PharmaCare, sell the pills, and then use the money to buy alcohol, crack or heroin – all of which are much cheaper. Continued on A7

NewsBytes $45,000 DONATION Scotiabank recently donated $45,000 to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Abbotsford. Canuck Place CEO Filomena Nalewajek, in accepting the donation, said Scotiabank has supported the organization since 1995, when it opened its first children’s hospice in Vancouver. The second 30,000-squarefoot hospice is currently under construction on Marshall Road, adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital, as part of the Dave Lede Campus of Care. The project also includes the Abbotsford Hospice Society’s Holmberg House and Matthew’s House, a respite facility for children with severe disabilities.

REWARD FOR INFORMATION The family of a girl who was murdered in Abbotsford in 1975 has offered a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible. Kathryn-Mary Herbert, 11, was last seen in the area of Townline and Marshall roads on Sept. 24, 1975, after a friend, whom she ran into while walking home from another friend’s, doubled her part-way home on his bicycle and dropped her off. Her partially decomposed body was found on Nov. 17 of that year near Harris Road in HERBERT an undeveloped area of the Matsqui First Nations. An autopsy confirmed her death was a homicide. Despite extensive investigation and reviews over the years, police have not been able to solve the case and are urging anyone with information to step forward. Witnesses reported seeing a suspicious white oldermodel American-made vehicle, occupied by a lone male, on the day that Kathryn-Mary went missing in the area between her home and where she was dropped off by her friend. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-877-543-4822 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Unauthorized use She estimated 20 per cent of controlled prescription drugs like OxyContin end up in unauthorized hands. She expects PharmaCare to carefully scrutinize all OxyContin patients who seek to switch to OxyNEO. Ann Livingstone, an advocate with VANDU (Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users), also expects reduced oxycodone access to trigger a switch to more potent narcotics such as morphine derivative Dilaudid or heroin. “There needs to be some outreach,” Livingstone said. “People can be very, very vulnerable when

Hair salon goes a cut above An Abbotsford hair salon is providing free haircuts to those in need this Sunday, March 11. Black Pearl Hair Loft is holding the cuta-thon in partnership with the Abbotsford Community Services’ Food Bank. Owner Valentina Samoilov said five stylists will volunteer their time to give free haircuts to people. As well, Beauty Systems Group Canada has donated products that will be handed out to clients that day, and items will be collected for the food bank. Samoilov said she wanted to give something back to the community and approached the food bank with her idea. Samoilov previously organized a cut-a-thon for young mothers and their kids at the New Beginnings program in Abbotsford.

they’re in withdrawal. That’s when you’ll see women take stupid chances if they’re selling sex or men decide to rob some place.” She said OxyContin abuse is big in the Abbotsford area, where recreational users have taken to crushing the pills and snorting the powder. Others start on the drug after a car accident or sports injury and over time increase their dosages beyond what is covered as their dependency grows. “Then they just start buying from the black market.” Livingstone said health officials should look at ways to offer substitution therapy drugs, like Suboxone,

to help wean users and prepare for a surge in detox demand. But at Creekside Withdrawal, the sole inpatient detox centre serving the entire Fraser Health region, there are no empty beds and a three-week wait to get in. Health ministry spokesman Ryan Jabs said OxyContin was prescribed to 11,000 B.C. patients last year, mostly for short-term use. He said that represents about 1.5 per cent of all opiates prescribed for chronic pain. There will be a oneyear transition period allowing patients with existing special authority approvals to continue to get OxyNEO until Feb. 28, 2013.

QUESTION

Teachers’ strike

OF THE WEEK

Do you feel this year’s municipal tax increase should have been lower than 1.66 per cent?

If it’s not about the money...take it off the bargaining table then. Dave Randall

Also, if the government is not giving raises to other government employees, i.e. doctors, what makes the teachers so special? Jay Listos

To answer, go to abbynews.com

Why is no one holding the teachers accountable? Their union told media they would not be picketing this week, but just handing out pamphlets. Unless pamphlets are big posters stapled to long sticks waved in my face as I drive by, they don’t seem to be accountable to their own word. Tammy Lang

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Do you approve of the return of the Taboo sex show?

Posters on long sticks are considered informational and not picketing,v according to the Labour Relations Board. We are passing out leaflets to help the public understand why we are taking a stand against Bill 22. I am proud to be taking a stand against unjust laws and undemocratic bills. I’m doing this for my students because I believe they all have a right to a better education. Tara Landry

The bus stops here – or maybe not Andrew

Holota

On Point Recent letters on the local bus service, and its apparent shortcomings caused me to recall a tale that might put our system in another perspective. I harken back to a trip my newly wedded wife and I took to Costa Rica, many miles ago. Now, I don’t do buses – at least not on this continent. I prefer a big personal space bubble. It gets compressed only when necessary, such as on a jet airliner. Not much option there if you want to travel. And when you get where you’re going, renting vehicles sometimes doesn’t make financial sense, as my frugal wife is quick to remind me. Hence, there are times when I have to do buses. And we did, in a surprisingly contemporary coach to Cahuita, a small village on the east coast of Costa Rica.

It was an untrammelled spot on the edge of a national jungle reserve. The town is like most out-flung Costa Rican communities – much in the way of tin, but not much tinsel. Just the way a place ought to be if you want to experience the real culture of the country. After a few days, we decided to explore down the coast, to a little town called Manzanillo. There was a bus going there, leaving from a spot just a few blocks down from where we were staying. So, with a good degree of confidence based on the previous experience, we walked over to the bus stop the next morning at about 5:30, in plenty of time to catch the 6 a.m. bus. Six o’clock went by – with no bus. So did 6:15. As did 6:30. Costa Rican buses definitely do not run on time, I decided. There weren’t many locals on the street, but we did manage to chat with one of the few, and asked the obvious question, in my pidgin English and my wife’s serviceable Spanish: “Does the bus to Manzanillo come here at six o’clock?”

“Si.” Satisfied we had not misunderstood the meagre local instructions, we continued to wait. Seven o’clock passed. At 7:30, we asked another local, “Is this where you get the bus to Manzanillo?” “Si.”

Utterly confused, we approached one more passerby and went through the same round of questioning. We put our packs down and waited some more. No bus. At 8 a.m., the little local corner store with the warm Cokes and the cheap rum opened its doors across the street. We queried the clerk: “Does the bus to Manzanillo stop over there?” “Si.”

“Does it come on Tuesdays?” “Si.” “Does it usually arrive at 6?” “Si.” “But it hasn’t come yet.” An agreeable nod and a shrug. OK then. Back out to the bus stop. Utterly confused and frustrated, we approached one more passerby, and went through the same round of questions, except this time, we wisely added one more. “Will the bus come here today?” “No.” “Why not?” “Because the bridge to Manzanillo is washed out. The bus cannot go there.” Argh! “Why isn’t there a sign at the bus stop telling people that?” “Everyone knows.” “So how do people get to Manzanillo?” “They walk.” We shouldered our packs, and managed to grab a ride in the back of a truck heading in the right direction. At the washed-out bridge we joined all the other walking villagers. Quite pleasant actually. Much better than a bus.

Strikes teach ‘me first’

With all the pros and cons about the teacher’s strike, My heart goes out to the children of today. So many of them come from broken homes or one-parent homes that they don’t have the stability and the love and care we had a generation ago. It was a time when they could feel loved and secure, and both the home and the school aimed to make them kind and considerate, and helped them become all they could be. The teachers felt it was their duty to teach them respect and obedience. They were to help them, and to be an example for them. What do strikes teach students? Me first? If you can’t get what you want, refuse to work – nobody else matters. Regardless of whether the students lose a year

Cut back service to save costs I have been meaning to write about the bus service in Abbotsford for some time now and I congratulate (letter-writer) Jason Alexander for taking a stand. I agree fully that the bus service needs immediate attention as to the operating schedule and capacity. When the service was every 30 minutes, the buses were getting very few riders. Now the bus goes by every 15 minutes and they are getting less riders. All that has done is increase the operating costs by doubling everything. Double the number of drivers, double the amount of diesel and double the number of empty seats. There should be a definite cut-back of service after 6 p.m. Smaller buses and less runs. While you’re at it, please do something about the schedule, especially where and when the bus can stop and take a break. There is nothing more frustrating than getting stopped behind a bus on South Fraser Way and the driver is sitting there on a break or wasting time because he is early. Larry Harris

and their opportunity to enter university, the teachers won’t even give them report cards. With all the modern technology, anyone can get an education. The schools are there to teach people how to get along with each other, and to prepare them to become productive members of society. What are they really learning now? Remember, you are teaching them! It was like a breath of fresh air when Andrew Holota (March 2 column) explained how the teacher’s union was asking for the impossible. The only money the government has is what they collect from taxpayers; and they are bogged down with their own debt. Has common sense really become a casualty? Justine Warkentin

Why look at staff?

The News article “Arena/Heat loss estimated at $3.25 million in 2011� left me confused. Why would city staff be considered responsible for tax dollars disappearing into the AESC? It was the city leaders of the day who voted to build a very expensive building in an area offering too little parking combined with limited ingress and egress. Would more shows help the bottom line? Somehow, I think not. In fact it seems that operating costs increase with increased activity. And this was and remains entirely predictable. The folk who questioned the fiscal

sense of the AESC weren’t trying to rain on everyone else’s parade. Some sat down and crunched numbers, the data including estimated cost of shows matched with apparent disposable income of friends and relatives. Even comfortably middle class families were (and are) unlikely to have sufficient funds left over to support expensive entertainment on a regular basis. Councillors back then could have done these same calculations. But it didn’t happen. It seems a tad late to expect “staff � to dig us out of this morass. Regina Dalton

Red light district, too Seems the good ol’ boys are at it again, asking for another chance, begging the city to yet again take a gamble on more slots. I recall former councillor Bruce Beck being quite proud of himself that he could find 1.9 million results for ‘online slots’ on Google.

I guess business is good, because I see over 38 million results now. But I ask you this. Shouldn’t we also open up a red light district in Abbotsford? Because there’s 101 million results for ‘online sluts’ on Google.ca when I checked tonight. What was supposed

Challenge for men Men of Abbotsford, I have a challenge for you! I ask you to stand up and to defend the value of women, no matter what age! Why do you think it is that women dress in underwear to play football or sit in windows in red districts around the world? Yes, I put them both in one sentence, because the reason for it is the same – men’s wrongful behaviour against women and exploitation of them. It doesn’t matter if you yell at one, you lust after one that is not your wife or if you sit in front of your computer to search for porn. Any behaviour that is degrading a woman is wrong and only men who are man enough to make a difference will change the direction of society. There is a right and a wrong way to treat women. I challenge you to choose the right way! Werner Klotz

to be 50 slot machines now has to be 300, and with booze. Because the times and the city, they are a changin’. We shouldn’t restrict people’s ability to part with their money, no matter what their vice is. I was thinking that at least three blocks would do. Keith Hebert

Give up constitutional rights Regarding a recent article about how drugs are being smuggled into prisons and another story about the ineffectual tracking of sex offenders, has it not been made obvious yet that convicted persons should have all their constitutional rights waived while they are serving their time? Including after they’ve been paroled as, technically, they are still convicts and are still serving their sentence. It seems to me that while the criminals get to have this and that constitutional right upheld the victims get very little, if any, constitutional recognition. On top of this the criminals get double credit

for time served while waiting to go to trial and then get an early release as well. That’s a pretty harsh sentence for peddling drugs to elementary schools or raping someone or killing someone. What “credit” do the victims get? Watching these people get an even easier ride? I think our constitution is well and good. I think applying it to convicted criminals is not. I’d like to see if a petition to our public safety minister would have any effect in my lifetime. I can’t be the only person that has this politically incorrect view. Dan Garrett

Most of the discussion about the carbon tax has been about gasoline, and automobiles. What is being ignored is the natural gas used in our homes. My hydro and gas bills have been on a budget, so I didn’t really pay much attention

to the breakdown until this discussion. My last bill, January 2012, the breakdown was – actual cost, delivery, commodity charges – $ 93.53 I used the gas, it’s only fair that I pay for what I used. But I can’t see that I got

A silent walk ceremony will be held in Abbotsford on Sunday, March 25 in honour of the memories of murdered and missing women in Canada over the past five years. The event will be staged by the Art Matters Society, a charitable organization that aims to stop violence and raise awareness through live theatre and community events. This year, a “Shoe Memorial” will also be held in remembrance of women murdered in B.C. The collection of new and gently used shoes will be donated to The Warm Zone – a women’s drop-in centre – in Abbotsford, and the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre. The Memory March will run from noon to 3 p.m. at the Civic Plaza in Abbotsford (off Trethewey behind the Matsqui Centennial

Speaker Gladys Radek from walk4justice, will open the ceremony and vigil in the circle of the Shoe Memorial at 1 p.m. There will be a display of more than 4,000 names of women and children lost to violence. Mary Billy began “The Femicide List” after the Montreal Massacre in December 1989, when gunman Marc Lepine fatally shot 14 women at the Ecole Polytechnique. At the time, the list contained 1,865 names of murdered women and children across Canada. Art Matters Society director Gwynne Hunt assumed responsibility of the list in 2005. Participants will have a chance to pay tribute to the victims by bringing shoes directly to the memorial, or by dropping off donations at A & D Music, 2613 Montrose Ave in Abbotsford after March 1.

A healthy challenge Mayor, community urged to get active As a chiropractor, Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman understands the importance of good health. That’s why he jumped at the chance to take part in a fitness challenge. “It’s time to get back in shape. I’d like to see my abs again one more time before I die.” Banman said he wants to be an example to citizens to show that a few lifestyle changes can have a big effect on health and he’s hoping the city will get behind the program. The 2012 Healthy Community Challenge doesn’t begin until March 12, but tomorrow (Saturday), Abbotsford residents can sign up for the challenge and have their metrics (body mass index, weight, etc.) taken and recorded. Registration takes place at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre (2499 McMillan Rd.) or Innovative Fitness (#103 34609 Delair Rd.) from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The goal is to get B.C.’ers more active. Once registered participants can log onto the website, record their activities (which earns them points) and track their progress. After 90 days, the community that records the most online points is the winner. While Banman wants Abbotsford to win, the important thing is to participate. When he registered, the first-time Abbotsford mayor tipped the scales at 198 pounds, which he said is already a big improvement from a year ago when he hit the 230-pound mark. “I did lose 20 pounds while running for office,” he said. He believes in exercise and its positive effects and said the public has a responsibility to take charge of its own well-being. “We cannot expect the health care system to do everything for us. Health is something you can make a personal choice about. “Motion is life. When your not moving anymore, there’s only one place they put you.” For more visit www. healthycommunitychallenge.com.

Raj Chouhan, NDP labour critic, speaks before a crowd of more than 100 people who turned out last Sunday to honour the memory of three women. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been five years since a tragic van accident took the lives of Sukhvinder Kaur Punia, Amarjit Kaur Bal and Sarabjit Kaur Sidhu. The Abbotsford farmworkers were involved in a crash on March 7, 2007 as they and 14 other passengers were being transported to work. The incident spurred a push to improve safety regulations for farmworkers. The ceremony was held at Thunderbird Stadium, adjacent to Abbotsford city hall.

Hide and Shriek

A b b o t s f o r d Christian Secondary School has already held a run of its latest theatre production Hide and Shriek, and are hopeful this weekend’s performances will go just as well.

,!"#/""Ķ

The comedy tale is full of lively, larger than life characters. From the hillbilly family to the city folk to the swamp monster, the play features crazy antics at every slamming door. It’s the story of June Hungerford, who is on the run from Edwina Hyde, a crazy woman who is convinced June has stolen the man she loves. June heads to the hills to hide and encounters a bizarre hillbilly family: Mom yells a lot, Dad’s not too sharp, and their son Aesop doesn’t

seem to have two brain cells to rub together. Add in some visitors from the city, a swamp creature, a lawyer, a body, and a couple of college students searching for a friend and you are set for an evening of melodramatic comedy. The set construction class has worked its magic to produce an impressive set design. The show continues its run tonight and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the school (35011 Old Clayburn Rd). For more information call 604-755-1891.

Students from Abbotsford Christian Secondary School are presenting the melodramatic comedy, Hide and Shriek.

resisting violence with courage and vision. This year the spotlight campaign will be on the women and girls of Haiti. In late March 2011, Eve Ensler and other members of Art Matters traveled to Port-au-Prince and Cap Haitien, Haiti to visit the safe house and legal justice centres. They met with many of the local women activists, beneficiaries, and survivors who are creating and maintaining the campaign. The safe houses and legal justices centres, which are supported by the work of thousands of activists all over the world, are sheltering women and their children who have survived sexual violence, and providing them with support services and legal assistance, working towards ending the cycle of impunity with which the rapes are occurring. As always, the March 24 local show will contribute to that campaign. Tickets are available at A&D Music on Montrose Avenue and Zammyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lingerie and Swimsuits on Bourquin Crescent. Or you can also get tickets at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 each but with a donation of a new or like-new pair of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes the tickets are $15 each. Shoes will be donated to the Warm Zone in Abbotsford and to the Downtown Eastside Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre. For more information contact gwynne1@telus.net or call 604-859-2407.

Murder mystery opens Mission’s Opening Nite Theatre Society’s (ONTS) production of the Agatha Christie play And Then There Were None opens tonight. The story revolves around eight strangers who are lured to the mysterious Soldier Island. Some of them believe that they’ve been invited by an old friend. The rest have been hired by a mysterious employer. After their first dinner, once they’re all in the drawing-

room, a voice reads out a list of accusations against them. Each one is accused of murdering at least one person, and they have been brought to the island to pay for their crimes. No one is sure what to make of the recording. Everyone goes to bed uneasy, some feeling guilty, others just worried about their safety. Then, one by one, people begin to die. The play runs tonight, March 10-11, 16-18 and 23-25 at the

ONTS theatre located at 33227 Railway Ave. in Mission. Evening performances are at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 and are available from Murdoch’s Bookshoppe on 1st Avenue in Mission, or at the door. The March 10 production features an exhibition by Mission artist Joy, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. A collection of her works will be exhibited during the run of the play.

ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Friday, March 9, 2012

shows its teeth Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Yale Lions’ defence is no joke. The New Westminster Hyacks found that out firsthand on Wednesday, as the Lions mauled them 72-36 in the first round of the B.C. AAA high school girls basketball championships at Capilano University in North Vancouver. Yale raced out to a 36-11 lead at halftime – a performance so dominant, even head coach Euan Roberts was amazed. “When it was 36-11, I was like, ‘Is this us?’” Roberts marveled with a chuckle. “But we had a very good defensive presence. Everybody was talking, everybody was moving, and our help side was alert.” Wednesday’s game represented the first AAA provincial appearance by a Yale senior girls basketball team in more than two decades, and Roberts made sure they got to the gym early to soak up the atmosphere and allow any pregame jitters to dissipate. “The ball’s the same, the court’s the same,” Roberts said, echoing Gene Hackman’s famous speech from the classic hoops movie Hoosiers. “It’s still basketball. The only thing that changes is you might have to do a few more interviews afterward.” Hailey Kendall (15 points, 12 rebounds) and Kendra Arnold (13 points, 10 rebounds) both posted doubledoubles, while Sara Kurath was named player of the game after notching 14 points and five boards. The Lions faced the Brookswood Bobcats in the quarter-finals on Thursday, but that result was not available at press time. Visit abbynews.com for updates.

Fast-maturing Aliu leads Heat past Aeros Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

For the first few years of his pro hockey career Akim Aliu struggled to fit in, but he’s found a home with the Abbotsford Heat. The most recent evidence of the burly (6’3”, 220 pound) winger’s growth came on Wednesday evening, as he scored twice to lead the Heat to a 4-1 triumph over the Houston Aeros before 3,520 fans at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. “The neat thing is . . . he’s scored nine goals as a checker,” Heat head coach Troy ALIU Ward said of Aliu. “That says a lot about his development right now, and we’re really happy with him. “I think he’s developing as much off the ice as he is on the ice. He’s becoming a real good teammate.” Aliu became a member of the Heat on Boxing Day 2011, when the Winnipeg Jets loaned him to Abbotsford. He’d spent most of the fall and winter at home in Toronto after a falling-out with the Jets during training camp. Upon his arrival, Aliu – a former second-round pick by the Chicago Blackhawks originally touted for his scoring potential – was told by Ward that he needed to excel in a checking role before he’d be entrusted with more offensive re-

To that end, Ward has made Aliu a fixture on the Heat’s third line, centered by captain Quintin Laing. The youngster has embraced the role and benefitted from Laing’s wisdom, while chipping in offensively. His goals on Wednesday were pretty ones. Aliu opened the scoring at 10:11 of the first period, after Ryan Howse forced a neutral-zone turnover. Aliu came swooping in and fired a wrist shot that was blocked by Aeros goalie Matt Keetley, but he tracked down his own rebound and backhanded it home. In the second period, with the Heat leading 2-1, blueliner Chris

Breen made a lovely lead pass to Aliu, who turned on the afterburners to split the Aeros’ defence to break in alone. He snapped a shot through Keetley’s legs to end the former Heat keeper’s night – he was relieved by backup Joe Fallon. Nick Tuzzolino and Hugh Jessiman also scored for the Heat, while Joel Broda was the lone Houston shooter to solve Abbotsford netminder Leland Irving, who made 25 saves. Afterward, Aliu said that the NHL parent Calgary Flames’ decision to trade for his permanent rights – the Flames sent defenceman John Negrin to the Jets on Jan. 30 – went

Master Your Money

The New Wealth Secret A true story of an unlikely underdog who mastered the money game Have you ever felt an uncomfortable silence when someone starts getting too personal about money? Why is that? I find it odd that people share their most intimate details with friends and strangers on Facebook, yet completely clam up when the subject of money comes up. Like it or not, money is what makes our society click. Canadians enjoy one of the highest qualities of life in the world, and money is a big part of the reason why.

about money. But Rob did approach him - and Frank told him Money is ALL about leverage. Frank then went on and shared with Rob one of the greatest lessons he had ever learned. When your money makes more money for you than your job does... then you are well on your way to financial freedom. If you make $20 an hour at your job - true financial independence begins when the money you invest is making

My name is Darren Weeks and I am one of the fortunate few who LOVES to talk about money. More specifically, I love to talk about the fundamentals that help people create and protect their wealth. Real independence comes when you learn how to make money work for you. Money knowledge needs to be at your side in all situations... like a trusted friend who does nice things for you on a regular basis.

When you understand the rules of the game...the money will find you! My company, the Fast Track Group, has been ranked among Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies for two straight years now. Last year, we finished 40th on PROFIT Magazine’s list. In 10 years, I have taken it from 5 employees in one tiny office, to over 100 employees and 14 offices. More than 350,000 Canadians have now attended Fast Track events. All our success has enabled us to support people that inspire us. The Fast Track Group is the title sponsor of Canada’s Luge team and we support them to the tune of over $1 million per year. On top of providing FREE financial education to all Canadians, my company is able to offer better returns and tax savings to our investors thanks to our partnerships with multinational Companies. We are not some “fly-by-night corporation.” My greatest pride in all of this? Seeing my clients, students and peers succeeding and thriving in the current economy. Rob Chaulk came to one of my events in the Spring of 2008. He grew up in a family with a poor dad, and a rich dad (his uncle). So Rob had been given a good start on his money education. But it wasn’t enough. Rob was a hard worker that knew his job wasn’t going to make life any easier. He held careers in the energy and industrial sector. He dabbled in some businesses along the way in the restaurant and towing business. When Rob read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, he took it seriously and within 30 days he bought his first rental property. He was hooked. He put together a plan for 10 properties in 10 years... his key to retirement. Right around this same time he had lunch with his rich dad (his multi-millionaire uncle). Not exactly an easy guy to talk to, his uncle “Frank” was self-made and not easy to approach

Which of these would you like to put a permanent end to? • Constantly checking your bank balance to make sure there is enough left over to cover the monthly bills. • Worrying about how you will EVER get out of the rut and finally be able to start relaxing about money. • Arguing with your spouse about money and the challenges that come with a lack of it. • Dreaming about that vacation you have always wanted and needed, yet knowing it will never happen at the rate you are going now. • The fear that your children will be just as bad with their money as you have been. • Fretting over those unexpected expenses that come in – knowing full well you have to do a lot of shuffling to scrape together enough to cover them off. • The jealousy you feel when someone you know ends up doing well financially, knowing FULL WELL you are smarter than they are.

Give us 3 hours of your time and we’ll give you powerful strategies that are guaranteed to change your life.

Rob Chaulk

you $25 an hour, without you having to do anything more. Frank showed him how to turn his rental property into 10 properties in just 12 months. Rob Met Darren Rob then came to a Get Rich in Canada event, hosted by myself... and was able to create a $4 million dollar property portfolio in just 24 months. As Rob says “Money is just the scorecard. When you understand the rules of the game - and how the game works - the money will find you! Now it’s my turn to pass on my knowledge and experience.” While he was building his portfolio of properties, Rob also took his health very seriously. Rob was overweight, had sleep apnea and was sluggish every waking hour. After dropping over 100 pounds Rob found a new lifestyle that had been long lost, and a money mindset that continues to help him and his family with all of the retirement and dreams. Is it your turn to master the money mindset? I am proud to share that my system has worked for everyone who aggressively applied it. You could be the one with a large real estate portfolio and a business or two that runs without you. ...Many people are broke, and will stay that way for the rest of their life. My company has organized an event coming up in your city and I would like you to join us. There is no cost to attend. My team is here to make sure you get the tools you need for creating the independence you crave.

Find out how to get out of bad debt and into wise investments. Discover how anyone, no matter how dire their circumstances, can go from rags to riches in 5 years or less. My students and business partners are prime examples of how you can start with nothing and build a very healthy investment portfolio and business in 5 years or less. The best part? We don’t just show you what to do... you get the formula to go as fast as you like, and can handle. Most seminars share the what – not the how. We show you both with specific examples, formulas and resources to get you there on your own pace. Don’t go it alone! Bring a friend or family member with you and enjoy the journey to

wealth as a team. When you reserve your seat at this event, just mention who you want to bring and we will also give you a CD that sells for $39.95. Nothing good is ever FREE... right? Wrong. I know you may be sceptical because we aren’t charging you for this event. Think about this. Rob started off at a free event just like this. He heard about an event just like this put on by my company. He attended and absorbed every ounce of information shared, and took MASSIVE ACTION. He is now financially independent and able to live life on his own terms. What should you do next? Pick up your phone and dial 1-877-742-4236 or visit our website at www.AbbotsfordGetRich.com and reserve your seat there. Find one or more friends or family members who want out of the rat race like you do... and get them a seat booked as well. Last? Don’t let anyone discourage you or get in your way. Real independence starts when you learn to ignore all the negative people in your life who don’t want you to succeed. Make sure you show up, take lots of notes, and immediately start putting these ideas into action. If a completely unknown individual can be in the same situation you are and become financially independent in 5 years or less... why can’t you? This is the real deal and I have gone from $0 to $100 million in revenues in just 10 years using these strategies... my students are proof that my techniques work everywhere, for anyone who is willing to take action. Stop what you are doing right now and get your seat booked. Dial 1-877-742-4236 or visit our website at www.AbbotsfordGetRich.com and reserve your seat there. PS: The definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results!” Your success demands an investment of your time and money... and we are handing you a grand opportunity to improve your odds of success many times over. Join us for an incredible journey – with a proven way to make 2012 the year you’ve always wanted. *Darren Weeks is not always the presenter at Fast Track events

Twisters gymnasts lead charge at BC Games A podium sweep by a trio of male gymnasts from Abbotsford highlighted a massive medal haul for local athletes at the recent BC Winter Games in Vernon. Dawson Friesen, Cohen Kiers and Curtis Olivier finished first, second and third, respectively, in the allaround boys standings at the BC Games, in addition to winning multiple medals in individual events. Their remarkable performance paced Twisters Gymnastics Club to a terrific showing in Vernon. Brendan Ansell won gold on the pommel horse, while Emily Moorthy took silver on the vault. Moorthy and Shayla Ogloff helped the Fraser Valley zone squad to a gold medal in the girls team event, while Friesen, Kiers,

Olivier, Ansell and Elijah Horner led the boys zone team to a first-place finish as well. The Abbotsford Judo Club also cleaned up at the Games. Jeff Swadden (81 kg boys)

and Jesse Merrick (66 kg boys) both won gold, while Connor Jones (60 kg boys) took bronze. That trio, plus Simren Brar, Brayden Cryer, Austyn Rabinovitch, Melina Potvin, Noemie Potvin and Bethany

Cannon of Abbotsford, led the Fraser Valley zone squad to gold in the overall team standings. Local speed skaters Madison Karpes and Trenton Chard also climbed the podium.

Q Kayla Bruce of the University of the Fraser Valley women’s volleyball team has been named a CCAA All-Canadian. The fourth-year middle was the PacWest player of the year after leading the conference in blocks (87), aces (73) and total offence (4.1 points per set). Q The Fraser Valley Bruins missed the B.C. Major Midget League playoffs after a pair of losses to the Vancouver North East Chiefs last weekend. The Bruins came in tied with the Valley West Hawks for the league’s sixth and final playoff berth. But the Chiefs beat the Fraser Valley squad 6-0 on Saturday and 7-4 on Sunday, while the Hawks won both their weekend games. Q The Magnuson Ford FC Hurricane U17 boys squad won the District 5 Cup championship recently, beating the Surrey United Saints 2-1. Surrey opened the scoring in the second half, but the Abbotsford side equalized on a goal by Austin Lymburner. The game went to penalty kicks, and Hurricane goalie Sebastian Calderone saved four of seven shots, while Bhura Khabra converted the winning kick.

Dhillon won three bronze medals – in the boys 44 kg kumite individual competition, and in the kumite and kata team events. Steve Tang joined Dhillon on the kata team, while Sukhreen Samra and

Ravneet Sidhu helped the Valley squad to a silver in the girls team kumite. In girls hockey, Abbotsford’s Chanel Tvergyak and the Fraser Valley team won gold.
