Message from the City Manager Holiday Fire Safety

I have enjoyed the opportunity of communicating with many of you over the past several weeks as we engaged in the consultation process for the 2011 Budget. Some of the people I spoke with asked that we make every attempt not increase our budget or make any substantial increases to taxes for residents. Others were equally passionate about restricting cuts to programs and services. All of the feedback we received from you during our budget consultation process was taken into account and we have put a sincere effort toward maintaining services for residents while keeping tax increases as low as possible.

The holiday season should be a happy time, a chance to celebrate with family and friends. The Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service offers the following safety tips to keep your holiday safe: Heating your Home

Frank Pizzuto City Manager

On December 6, 2010, the Consolidated Budget will be presented to Council for their consideration. The Consolidated Budget will recommend an increase of 2 per cent toward the Police Department, a 1.4 per cent increase toward City Operations; and a 1 per cent Capital increase. Together these total a 4.4 per cent budget increase for 2011. This proposal includes staff reductions, leaving positions vacant and business improvement reviews to generated savings, and is the lowest level that we can achieve without requiring reductions to programs and services for residents. Residents will have an opportunity to make comments to Council on the Consolidated Budget recommendations at the December 6th session which will be held at 12:30pm in the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium at City Hall. For us at the City, budget preparations are part of an ongoing strategic planning process which includes forecasting and reviewing monthly expenditures, reviewing ongoing business improvements and efficiencies, applying for grants, and establishing our priorities.

• Have your chimney inspected and have it cleaned if necessary before you start using it. Always use a ¿re screen and burn only material appropriate for ¿replaces. Burn only wood — never burn paper or pine boughs in a ¿replace as the burning particles can Àoat up your chimney and onto your roof or into your yard. Always remove ashes from your ¿replace and place in a metal container. • When heating your home with a portable heater make sure to follow manufactures instructions for clearances to other combustibles. Ensure children or pets do not knock the portable heater over and that it has automatic shut off protection. Outdoor Lights • Use only extension cords rated for outdoor use and do not overload circuits. • Always check light strings and cords for fraying and damage. Do not leave lights on overnight or when going away. The Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service wishes you and your family a Fire Safe Holiday Season.

I would like to thank you for sharing your ideas with us as we continue to work toward keeping the City healthy, safe, and vibrant. Frank Pizzuto City Manager

COUNCIL BRIEF Highlights from Abbotsford City Council

Winter Updates for Abbotsford Residents • Keep Sidewalks Clear - Please keep sidewalks, boulevards and footpaths next to your property clear of snow or ice, so others may safely use them. Under the City’s Good Neighbour Bylaw every owner or occupier of property shall remove snow and ice by 12:00 noon, the day after it accumulates. Failing to comply with the City’s bylaw may result in a ¿ne of $150.00. Visit www.abbotsford.ca/bylaws or call 604-864-5512 for more information. • Potential Curbside Collection Disruptions - During extreme winter weather, collection of curbside garbage, recycling and yardwaste may be disrupted. Safety of workers, residents, and property always comes ¿rst, so if there is such risk, collection will be postponed. If collection is missed, please set out your materials on your next collection day. The usual container limits will be doubled for areas that have missed a collection day. On some occasions the City, or its contractor, may provide additional collection as soon as possible after the missed collection day. Visit www.abbotsford.ca/engineering, or call 604-853-5485 regarding CITY pickup or call 604-864-9177 regarding CONTRACTOR pickup. • Frozen Yard Waste - During cold temperatures, yard waste is particularly prone to freezing in yard waste containers. Collection workers will try to empty the yard waste container by tipping it as usual, but the yard waste may stay frozen inside the can. Collection workers are not able to bang the container to try and dislodge the yard waste in case

of causing damage to the container. If your yard waste container and contents are frozen, please bring it into a heated space a day or two before collection day to thaw, and then put it out on the morning of the collection day by 7:00 a.m. Alternatively, during freezing temperatures, try using kraft paper yard waste bags. • Visit www.abbotsford.ca/engineering or call 604-853-5485 for more information.

Notice of Increase to Vehicle Parking at the Abbotsford International Airport The Vehicle Parking Fees in the Hourly lot at the Abbotsford Airport currently are $2.00 for each 2 hour period. The rate structure will change to $2.00 for the ¿rst hour and $1.00 for each subsequent hour up to a three hour maximum. This modest increase will help to offset increased operating costs. The proposed rates are as follows: Hourly parking: • $2.00 for ¿rst hour • $1.00 for each subsequent hour Long-term & daily parking: • $8.00 per 24 hour period • Weekly parking: $40.00 per week • Monthly parking: $120.00 per 28 days • Annual parking: $1,200.00 per year For further information, please contact Mike Pastro, Airport General Manager, at 604-864-5651.

A FAMILY OF 4 PRIZE PACK!

While seeing wild animals in city settings is not uncommon, John Albert was treated to a most unusual sight last weekend. Three deer wandered through his backyard, and while two were the dark tan of blacktails, the other was mottled white and brown. “I have been a hunter for 15 years, and I have never seen a deer like that,” he said. Slightly smaller than the other deer, and obviously older than a fawn, it did have the trademark black tail of the others. He took a few shots – with his camera – and sent them to The News to see what could be learned about the little deer with strange colouring. Veterinarian Ken Macquisten, former director of the Greater Vancouver Zoo, said such deer are similar to the more famous Kermode bears, or “spirit bears” as they’re also called. They carry a gene that causes leucism, or a lack of pigmentation in their body surface. It is not like albinoism, which is a complete lack of pigmentation, and includes pink eyes. A vet would call them “leucistic” deer, also known in older terminology as “pied” or “piebald.”

A local resident spotted this unusually coloured deer – known as leucistic – in his backyard last week. It was with two other blacktail deer. They appear to be more common among the Lower Mainland’s deer population than elsewhere, said Macquisten. The Critter Care wildlife rehabilitation centre in Langley has had a few leucistic deer patients over the years, which were treated and released back into the wild. “It’s a beautiful little deer,” said the vet, who now lends his exper-

tise to the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife. He puts the creature in its first year, likely born in June. Its parents would both carry the gene that causes leucism. Albert has lived on Fraser Street for 13 years. His property backs onto an undeveloped area of Gladys Avenue. It’s the third time he has seen deer in his backyard.

The cost of hiring six new police officers for the community will be about $480,000, according to the Abbotsford Police Department (APD). Deputy Chief Len Goerke, in charge of administration, said the new officers proposed in the 2011 budget for policing will cost about $80,000 each, including wages and benefits. He said this is the cost of a new recruit, while a first-class constable is about $100,000, with the pay rising in increments over the years. Another $60,000 for wages

We are making headway and we do not want to go back where we were. Now is not the time to give up the gains we made.” The six officers are proposed in the following areas: one each in the traffic and major crime units, and four in the patrol division (one for each shift). This will bring the total number of APD officers to 216.

A special gift for Angie Single mom supported during move Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Angie spent 10 years battling an addiction to crystal meth and heroin. She got clean in August 2009 while she was in a physically abusive relationship that left her with black eyes and broken ribs. One day in March she left her house to attend her sixweek job-transition program and never went back. She had only her purse with her. Everything else was left behind. Angie, 36, moved into a recovery home, called Solace House, because she had nowhere else to go. She found a home there and she grew to love the people who worked with her in maintaining her sobriety and gaining back her selfesteem. Angie found further support through a spiritual 12-step program called Celebrate Recovery, run by Linda and John Driediger at Sevenoaks Alliance Church. Angie was well on her way to a positive, more fulfilling life. She was ready to find a home of her own again. Before she even started looking, she received a call from

Angie is settling into her new townhouse, after receiving a big boost from the MCC in Abbotsford. BC Housing that a subsidized two-bedroom townhouse was available in Abbotsford. It was perfect.

supplies she required. She mentioned her concern to Linda, who told her to make a list of the things she needed. Linda knew Jim Roth, the manager of the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Furniture and More thrift store on South Fraser Way. Angie figured Linda would help her pick out the items she needed from the store, and she would then have to determine what she could afford to purchase. Her list was long. It included everything right down to salt and pepper shakers. The two went to the store, and Angie spotted a few things she liked. This included a dining room set for $90, and a like-new stroller for $100. Then, Jim delivered some news. He would sell her the dining set for half price and the stroller for $35. A donation from Sevenoaks Alliance Church helped with the purchase. Everything else was free, and she was able to pick out even more items. Angie couldn’t believe that someone was being so nice to her. Continued on A7

A 60-year-old pedestrian is in serious condition after being struck by a vehicle while crossing Ware Street on Wednesday night. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the man was not in a marked crosswalk at the time. He was in the area between South Fraser Way and Mill Lake Road at about 7:45 p.m. when he was hit by a northbound GMC truck. The man was airlifted to hospital for serious injuries, including head trauma and multiple fractures. The 56-yearold driver of the truck remained on scene and co-operated fully with police, MacDonald said.

Salt and pepper shakers included From A5

“Thank you so much. I wouldn’t have been able to do this on my own,” she said through her tears. It was part of an ongoing program that MCC offers when there’s a need that can be verified by a service agency or a church. The idea is to support people who are trying to rebuild their lives. Angie felt blessed. She already

had a black-leather sectional couch given to her by Solace House, and a new bed would be provided through a provincial government program, but now she would have everything else she needed. On Thursday, Dec. 2, MCC delivered all the goods to Angie’s new home, including the dining set, two dressers, towels, bedding and all the supplies for her kitchen. She even got the salt and pepper shakers.

How to choose the Right Electrician if you have any of these 6 problems and you want them fixed today! Unlike the plumbers I know, electricians rarely get emergency calls. Our equivalent of a flood in the basement is a fire in the attic . . . and you don’t call us for that. You call 911. So you’re probably not reading this because you’ve got an electrical emergency. Instead, you have an electrical problem like one of these . . .

1. “My good friend (or husband) tried to do it.” My apologies to the guys reading this, but it’s true. A big part of our business is finishing up the electrical projects you start . . . from outlets to ceiling fans. And that’s okay, although it would be easier and probably cheaper if you’d call us first. We have the tools, experience and know-how to do the job right, start to finish. Call us for proven professional electrical expertise.

2. “I need a ceiling fan or chandelier installed.” We install lighting fixtures, fans, outlets, dimmers and more. Our work is guaranteed to meet city codes, and we use only copper wiring (no aluminum). Want to know why we use only copper wiring? Call us.

4. “I’ve got an ugly internet or cable TV wiring stapled to my baseboards.” Let us do the job right. Snaking wire through walls is an art, a science, a skill . . . and our specialty. It’s also something few electricians, cable companies or internet providers like to do. But you’re in luck when you call us. We’re World Champions at snaking wire without knocking holes in your walls.

5. “Smells like something’s burning” Overheated appliances and electrical circuits are a problem you don’t want to ignore. A call to us now could save you a call to 911 later.

6. “We’ve got a ‘mystery switch’.”

3. “I have a breaker that doesn’t stay reset.” If your breaker keeps tripping, you don’t have the equivalent of a flooded basement, yet. But, you do have a potentially dangerous problem involving the electrical circuits in your home. Don’t ignore it. Call us!

We love getting this call. If you’ve got a switch that you’ve never been able to link to an outlet or circuit, call us to solve the mystery.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Party leadership

Do you approve of the 6.8 per cent increase in the police budget?

Trust has been lost, and will not be found so easily. It’s high time the Liberals go the way that all centreright parties in BC eventually go ... to the grave. Why are people so inclined to hold on to a sinking ship? No electoral reform, no trust in the leading party, guess we’ll just have to wait until the NDP take the helm, sad as that is too. Tired_of_mediocrity

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

I had to laugh when I saw Falcon was running for the Liberals and announced he was going to do the province of British Columbia a favour and reduce HST by one per cent, LOL. How out of touch are these politicians with the province of B.C.? Right on Ms. Kwan. We also need to ditch Carol James. She is out of her mind if she thinks she could win this election. Rob Doob

Should the city spend one per cent of its capital facilities budget on public art? YOU RESPONDED:

Ah yes and Miss Kwan is so much better as she tries to split her own party? Not cool. MrsSandford

YES: 63% NO: 37%

Confessions of a Christmas carol Grinch Andrew

Holota

On Point Do You Hear What I Hear? How could you not? It’s everywhere. It’s inescapable. Christmas music, that is. Now, hold onto something, or sit down for this. Deep breath. I can’t stand Christmas music. Shocking, isn’t it? I hear Christmas carols, and I get all Grinchy. I didn’t use to be like this. I think as a kid I even used to sing the cursed things. But then, along came mega shopping malls and big box stores which, after hyping Halloween in early September, put out the Christmas glitz in October. And along comes the Christmas music. Add the radio, and television spe-

cials, and the medical clinic, and the grocery store, and even, gawd forbid, the office environment, and it’s all carols, all the time. I think the only people who weren’t inundated with Christmas music for the past month were those three teens lost at sea somewhere off the coast of Fiji. Lucky buggers. (Getting rescued, I mean.) Whoever wrote Silent Night clearly had no understanding of what one actually sounded like. I have made a rule in my house. No Christmas carols while I am within earshot, or the source will be shot – figuratively speaking, of course. That means no singing, no humming, strumming, or drumming. Especially by Little Drummer Boys. Rum pa pum *thump*! Decked in the Hall... No Rudolph, no Jingle Bells, no Three Kings, and definitely no Twelve Days of Christmas. (Maids a-milking and ladies dancing may be of interest, however.) There shall be Peace on my Earth when there is no saccharine holiday

season musical accompaniment. Joy will come To The World when carols pass out of fashion, like serving alcohol at staff Christmas parties. (Oooh, that was trouble a-brewing!) I wait for the day when it can be declared across all the land, Hark, the Herald Angels have put a sock in it! In Excelsis Gloria has finally recognized her excess.

I’d rather jam burning pine cones in my ears than hear another Christmas carol. God Rest Ye Yaps, Merry Gentlemen. Go Tell It On the Mountain ... way, way up the mountain. On the other side of the mountain, in fact, and take Frosty the Snowman with you. I would rather jam flaming pine cones into my ears than hear another Christmas carol.

You can imagine my distress as I researched the Internet for this column. How do you Google Christmas carols without the sappy little ditties seeping into your head? I had to go out in the parking lot and turn on my truck alarm, just to clear my brain. My aversion to ho-ho-ho music is all quite disconcerting for my dear youngster, who is quite fond of the tinny tunes, and is inclined to follow the example of the shopping malls in terms of timing and endless repetition. But, blessed be the MP3 player, and ear buds. Whether its Ache-on, or Acorn, or whatever his name is, or Away in a Manger, I don’t have to listen to it. Now if only the big box stores could get with that program, and hand out headsets at the door. If it wasn’t for family, I would be so gone at Christmas time. I’d be lounging on the beach at some tropical tourist trap, where there is nothing to be heard but Bob Marley, and not a hint of O Tannenbaum ... just tanning bums.

Mr. Brink’s letter concerning changing our habits with the new drinking and driving laws brings to light some interesting arguments. I first would like to add that I agree with him that we all need to adjust and change our habits accordingly, but comparing it to the cell phone laws makes no sense. We are permitted to talk on the phone while driving, you just can’t hold on to it. This comparison is illogical. Mr. Brinks addresses the idea of his friends, who used to drive while under the influence and have now decreased this habit. Even though his friends don’t drink and drive as much as they have in the past, they are eligible for the tough new penalties as well because it is not clear to the individual exactly how much it takes to blow .05. Rumours abound as to how the police officers’ discretion allows for them to decide who is and who is not able to continue the drive home. Here is where the problem lies. No one can argue that these laws make sense; it is how they’re enforced that creates the frustration and confusion. Drinks with dinner or a beer with friends is a well entrenched part of our culture. These things are not criminal, but driving drunk is. Let’s keep the emphasis where it should be, and that is having viable options available for when they’re needed. More work is needed in this regard. Sharon Lewis

I promised to pound my pens into plow shears, however, a recent letter from Diane Davies discrediting the Abbotsford Police deserves a response. As a retired Abbotsford police officer who has been awarded with two Governor General Medals for 30 years of exemplary service as well as the first recipient of the Abbotsford’s O u t s t a n d i n g Community Service Award, I would like to relate an incident which I was personally drawn into while alone and on routine patrol in the Garden Park area of Abbotsford. It was around 2 a.m. on a dark and cold night, when I noticed two parked vehicles – one of which I knew belonged to a local drug dealer. Realizing that a drug deal was probably going down, I did

my duty and hastened to intervene. I swung into the park and rapidly approached the suspects. I observed a male person hurry over to a truck where he released a huge white pitbull from the front cab and started walking towards me. This was going to be a game of intimidation, and this person was expecting me to be afraid to exit my patrol vehicle. On the contrary, I stepped out to confront him, but not before releasing my 12 gauge shotgun from its clasp and racking a live round into the chamber. I aimed directly at the dog and commanded that it be placed back into the truck. The suspect complied immediately, as there ought to have been no doubt that I meant business and

that pitbull was going to succumb to a 00 shotgun shell. I was now in control, and with covering units on the scene, we completed our duties without any further problems, albeit I didn’t feel good about being denied the privilege of eliminating another potential hazard from our community. That is an example of what police officers are unexpectedly faced with, and our entire community commends them for their valour and determination. I want to salute the two Abbotsford police officers who were involved in this latest incident, and raise a toast to them and the entire force for their valued service. That, Ms. Davies, is how one gets tough on crime. John Skorupa

Metro votes to keep AirCare testing

A11

Decision now turns to Fraser Valley Regional District and province Jeff NAGEL Black Press

AirCare shouldn’t be tossed on the scrap heap, according to Metro Vancouver’s board. Directors voted unanimously last Friday to extend the Lower Mainland vehicle emission testing prog ram until at least 2020. The endorsement mirrors the recommendation of a multi-agency review that found the air quality benefits justify continuing the tests. AirCare has had less impact as new cars get steadily cleaner. But the review’s report found air pollution and the resulting health impacts could worsen significantly if the program is dismantled. It also determined newer vehicles do become worse polluters as they age – more so than had been projected. “An end to AirCare would result in more local air pollutants and g reenhouse gases in the airshed, which in turn would degrade air quality and worsen health i m p a c t s, ” said Surrey Coun. Linda Hepner, vice-chair of Metro’s environment and energy committee. Metro also wants the AirCare program to be overhauled to also target emissions from big trucks that can belch out large amounts of diesel particulate. There’s already a provincial government-run AirCare on Road program for

heavy-duty vehicles, but officials at the regional district say it could either be toughened or rolled into the passenger vehicle testing program. “We want to see more done,” said Roger Quan, Metro’s

air quality planning division manager. “Heavy-duty vehicles are becoming more of an issue because of the health impacts of diesel particulate matter.” The $45-million annual cost of running AirCare

testing centres is entirely borne by motorists through fees, so killing the program would not save TransLink or the government any money. Nearly half the vehicles in the region are exempt from test-

ing because they’re less than eight years old. Most of the cars that are tested are charged $45 every two years and pass with flying colours. But 115,000 – 13 per cent of those tested – failed in 2007.

Vehicles that fail are denied insurance until they get a tuneup and a re-test. The Fraser Valley Regional District’s environment committee considers the report Dec. 7 ahead of a board vote Dec. 15.

A final decision is expected to be made by public safety minister Rich Coleman in the weeks ahead. If extended, the AirCare program would also add new tests to detect liquid leaks from gas tanks and fuel lines.

The community of Seabird Island is mourning the loss of a longtime leader. Grand Chief Archie Charles, 88, passed away on Monday morning, after a brief stay in hospital. Current Seabird Island Chief Clem Seymour said he’s lost a mentor, and the community has lost an important figure. “I used to go sit down and talk with him about a certain

amount of things going on around here,� Seymour said on Wednesday. Charles was elected first in 1973, and stayed on for 14 consecutive terms, until March of 2001. It was just last summer, on August 28, that Charles was awarded the Order of Canada. While recipients of the award, as a rule, go to Ottawa to be awarded the honor by the Governor General, that rule was changed for Charles. Instead, a cer-

Point presenting the award. Charles leaves behind a legacy of self-governance that many First Nations bands now emulate, said Willie Charlie, chief of the nearby Chehalis band. “Archie was very instrumental in how progressive Seabird is today,� he said. The programs and services offered to band members, along with the infrastructure on the reserve, are all in place due to Charles’ many years as elected chief. “That’s the approach we have (at Chehalis),� Charlie said. Archie was the first chief to be named a grand chief, a title bestowed upon him by the Sto:lo Tribal Council about 20 years ago. The title is given to chiefs who have been in an elected position for many years. Archie Charles was also a veteran of the Second World War. He is survived by many family members, including his wife, Tina Jack. Seymour said a gathering is being planned for Saturday morning at the Seabird Island Community Hall.

Protest fisheries likely to net small fines

Jeff NAGEL

Black Press

Forty-eight commercial fishermen who staged illegal protest fisheries on the Fraser River in 2001 and 2002 to try to force Ottawa to crack down on aboriginal salmon poaching will likely pay fines of no more than $200. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the penalty prosecutors are calling for while the convicted fishermen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who include Conservative MP John Cummins and B.C. Fisheries Survival Coalition spokesman Phil Eidsvik â&#x20AC;&#x201C; say they should be given absolute discharges, with no record. The case has been grinding through the courts for years and a Nov. 25 sentencing hearing in Surrey heard longstanding grievances of lax policing of aboriginal fisheries, a blind eye being turned by federal officials to unreported native catches and black market sales of food fish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How can you possibly have a law for this guy and a separate law for me?â&#x20AC;? demanded Russel Jacobson, one of the fishermen being sentenced. Eidsvik, who represented the group in court, said protesters tried to distribute salmon for local causes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not for profit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and said it helped defuse tensions on the river, averting potential violence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We decided weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have a food fishery ourselves,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to bust us. And then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to

bust everybody.â&#x20AC;? Eidsvik tabled evidence that some lower Fraser bands caught enough salmon in 2002 food fisheries to provide more than 1,000 pounds of fish per band member â&#x20AC;&#x201C; far more than they could conceivably consume. Dennis Brown, a representative of Fraser River gillnetters but not one of the protesters, told the court DFO ceded effective enforcement of native fisheries by signing agreements with bands, such as one with the Cheam that severely limited the ability of fishery officers to conduct patrols. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my opinion,

More money to get what you want this Holiday Season.

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a kind of fog around the whole area of political correctness that obscures what would otherwise be routine policy decisions,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. Judge James Wingham said he heard the frustrations about the perceived injustice but cautioned fishermen they lost their legal battle. In the years since the protest fisheries, courts have strengthened the constitutionally protected aboriginal right to fish for food, social and ceremonial purposes ahead of all other users, subject only to conservation. And in 2008 the

Supreme Court of Canada decided DFO could authorize aboriginal fisheries to sell their fish. The high court ruled against non-native fishermen who argued separate race-based commercial fisheries for First Nations violated their right to equal treatment before the law. Different treatment can be justified because First Nations are disadvantaged groups, it found. Eidsvik and Cummins say fishermen donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conduct more protest fisheries. Sentences will be handed down Dec. 21.

Finalist: Harwant Brar My city is Abbotsford because...no other place feels like home. I live on a 5 acre Blueberry farm near Clearbrook exit. I think to myself... where else in the world can you get the serenity of farm life, the view of Mt. Baker, the proximity of the Border, Hwy. 1, airport, Vancouver, unlimited public skate time for my future NHLer and literally minutes drive to any amenity imaginable? My children won’t have to leave town to get a world-class education or take in a world-class concert for that matter. Major infrastructural improvements reflect a thoughtful approach to the sound development of this City in the Country. Although I moved here in the 90s from Prince Rupert, I feel like I was raised here. I appreciate that close to a century of Sikh history in Abbotsford is so closely associated with important landmarks like Mill Lake and the heritage temple. I have also noticed a really amazing housing trend. Abbotsford is comprised of multiple unique neighborhoods within minutes of each other. Drive in any direction and ask yourself... “Am I still in Abbotsford?”. To put it simply, so many different flavours.. all compounding to make a tasty rainbow of residents and community. It’s like the creator sprinkled a box of lucky charms in the sky... and what reached the ground.. became the foundation for the City of Abbotsford.

The evening of Nov. 29 was a bustle of activity at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre as 22 businesses went to work decorating a tree in support of Abbotsford Hospice Society. The Second Annual Trees of Hope brought together colleagues and family for a fun social evening, showcasing their creativity and community spirit. “This is the second year that Sevenoaks has chosen the Abbotsford Hospice Society as their charity of choice for the Trees of Hope community initiative. “We are grateful for their support and that of the many busi-

nesses that have not only contributed financially but have spent considerable time and effort to create memorable and beautifully decorated symbols of the holiday season,” said Deborah Lehmann, executive director for Abbotsford Hospice Society. Each of the sponsors contributed $500. All funds raised will directly benefit Abbotsford Hospice Society and local families. Visitors to Sevenoaks are encouraged to stop by the Trees of Hope display located by the food court and vote for their favourite tree. The winner will be announced after Dec. 30 in The News.

MLA Dalton won’t run Maple Ridge-Mission Marc Dalton has decided not to run for the top provincial political job. In a phone interview with The Record, Dalton said given the time frame that exists before the leadership vote in February, “I felt I couldn’t mount the campaign I would have needed to.” And while he acknowledged his chances of winning the Liberal job were slim, the firstterm backbench MLA said he had thought of running for premier to bring issues to the forefront. The Liberal Party votes Feb. 12 for a new leader.

HARDWOOD HEROES

Steven Dhaliwal MEI Eagles

MEI senior boys coach Dave Martens believes Steven Dhaliwal has the skill set to be an impact player. The mentality? That’s a work in progress. On-court aggression is a bit of a departure, personality-wise, for the soft-spoken Dhaliwal. “I’m challenging him on almost a daily basis to be that real aggressive, assertive player,” Martens said of the 6’2” guard/forward, who is embarking on his Grade 12 season. “Already, we’re seeing a change in his game where he’s not waiting for other people to lead.” Dhaliwal also excels at soccer, but he’s scaled back his soccer commitments to focus on hoops.

Kayli Sartori

Joti Grewal

Viv Veerman Raj Grewal

The Mouat senior girls begin the season ranked No. 3 among AAA teams in the province, and Kayli Sartori’s interpretation of that ranking recalls Goldilocks’s porridge preference: it’s not too hot, not too cold, but just right. “We didn’t want to be ranked any higher or lower,” she said. “It’s a good place to start. It brings high expectations, but not too high. It allows us a chance to show we’re able to compete with the top teams.” Sartori, a 6’0” phenom with the skill to play both inside and outside, leads a towering Hawks team that also features Katie Brink (6’1”) and Melissa Spring (6’2”).

In recent years, the Rick Hansen Hurricanes senior boys have generally been known as a good little team – with emphasis on the little. “We’ve been small in the past,” Hurricanes coach Sukhpaul Dhaliwal acknowledged. “Whereas this year, we’ve got some guys who can score inside.” The Hurricanes’ improved interior game rests in the hands of Joti Grewal and 6’5” centre Gary Dhindsa. Grewal, at 6’1”, isn’t exactly a giant at the power forward spot, but he’s got a knack for scoring in the paint. “This tournament,” Grewal said, “is a good measuring stick for us.”

One of the fascinating elements of a city-wide tournament is that it brings together schools of all shapes and sizes. The Abby Christian senior girls are the defending Single A provincial champs, and how they fare against theirlarger local rivals will be one of the more interesting storylines. “I think it’s a great opportunity for us,” said Knights point guard Viv Veerman. “Playing the big schools will help us work out the bumps and kinks in our game before we go to provincials and play those really important games.” Veerman, a first team all-star at B.C.’s last year, excels at pushing the ball up the floor.

W.J. Mouat Hawks

Hansen Hurricanes

Abby Christian Knights

Bateman T-Wolves

After graduating a bona fide leading man in Matt Warkentin, the Bateman Timberwolves’ blueprint is changing this season. The T-Wolves will go with more of a committee approach to offensive production, with returning starters Raj Grewal and Arsh Sidhu shouldering a larger share of the load. Grewal, at 6’4”, presents a difficult match-up for opponents with his outside shooting and his ability to run the fast break. “There’s a lot more pressure,” Grewal said, reflecting on his expanded role. “Last year, if we were down, we could jump on Matt’s back and he’d get us back in the game. This year, it’s a good opportunity for me.”

The Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament, a city-wide hoops extravaganza, tips off next week. To celebrate, we’ve highlighted nine players to watch – one from each secondary school represented at the event. Words by DAN KINVIG Photos by JOHN VAN PUTTEN

City tourney at a glance Q The Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament runs Dec. 9-11 at seven different gyms around the city.

Jessica Collins Yale Lions

The Yale senior girls squad boasts a potential-laden group of Grade 11s who won the Fraser Valley junior title and finished fifth at provincials last season. Setting the defensive tone for the Lions is Jessica Collins. The 5’8” guard/forward was named the top defensive player at junior provincials last year, and she brings a kamikaze approach to the game. “Last year, I threw myself on top of the scorer’s table going after a ball,” she recalled with a grin. “Of course I like to score and everything, but I get so much more adrenaline when I do something good on defence.”

Varun Sidhu

Abby Traditional Titans

In many ways, the development of Varun Sidhu’s basketball skills have mirrored the development of the Abby Traditional senior boys program, which is embarking on its second year on the AA scene. When he moved with his family from India to Abbotsford at age 12, Sidhu had never played basketball. In Grade 9, he was cut from the Abby Traditional junior team. But heading into this season, the Grade 12 power forward has emerged as one of the Titans’ go-to guys. “He’s worked hard to make himself into a ballplayer,” said Titans coach Don Barden. “He has such a passion for the game, and he’s become a leader.”

33782 Marshall Rd, Abbotsford www.abbydentist.com MONDAY - SATURDAY • 8AM - 5PM

Rebecca Van Noort

St. John Brebeuf Bears

In terms of physicality and skill, Rebecca Van Noort is simply oozing with blue-chip potential. She’s just a couple millimetres shy of six feet tall, but she has the ball skills to play point guard. And did we mention she’s just in Grade 9? No wonder she’s playing for the senior varsity squad at SJB. “She a phenomenal athlete, really quick, and a great shooter,” Bears coach Taylor Kitteringham said. “And she’s so competitive – she wants to win every drill in practice. We need that attitude.”

Joel Hand

Abby Collegiate Panthers

Now in his third year as Abby Collegiate’s starting point guard, it feels like Joel Hand has been playing high school basketball forever. But although he’s been a fixture on the scene for a while now, the Panthers’ tough-asnails floor general says he’s not the same player as he was when he made his senior varsity debut in Grade 10. “The game’s so much slower for me now,” Hand said. “I’m a lot smarter this year. I think things through and try to find the best shot, whereas in Grade 10 I was always just trying to attack and get things done as quick as possible. I understand the game much better.”

Q On Thursday and Friday, games will run at the following gyms: Bateman – Sr. boys Abby Collegiate – Sr. girls W.J. Mouat – Jr. boys Abby Christian – Jr. girls MEI and Howe Middle – Grade 8 boys and girls Q The finals will be held at Columbia Bible College on Saturday. Gr. 8 girls – 11 a.m. Gr. 8 boys – 12: 30 p.m. Jr. girls – 2 p.m. Jr. boys – 3:45 p.m. Sr. girls – 5:30 p.m. Sr. boys – 7:15 p.m. Q The full draws for each grade division are posted online at abbynews.com.

and Gabriel Dumont put pucks past Irving. Bryan Cameron was the lone Heat shooter to solve Sanford in the skills competition as the North Divisionleading Bulldogs improved to 14-4-1-3. The Heat (12-9-0-3) moved into a tie with

the Toronto Marlies for second place in the North with 27 points. The Bulldogs opened the scoring at 9:59 of the first period, as Max Pacioretty finished off a pretty give-and-go with David Desharnais. It took the Heat until

Chefs

Service as Good as our Pancakes! There is no doubt about it, people love pancakes. And not just any pancakes...IHOP pancakes. Over the last half century, IHOP has developed a reputation for consistently delighting guests with great tasting, quality pancakes. This reputation is so strong, that in surveys, we’re usually the first restaurant to come to mind when people are asked where to go for pancakes.

Sandy

Guests come in to IHOP to enjoy a stack or our famous pancakes because pancakes make them feel good. It’s our pancakes and other great tasting menu items that bring people in the door, but how do we keep them coming back for more? We like to believe

that our “Service is as Good as our Pancakes” by offering service that is warm, caring, and meets the varied needs and expectations of our guests. We have many cooks that have reached ‘milestones’ including Satpal Randhawa (18 years), Rajwinder Soos (16 years) and Barbara Dorantes (10 years). There are also other cooks and servers that will soon be reaching their 10th year as part of the IHOP team. We are both pleased and proud to work side by side with those who care the most about serving our pancakes and other great menu choices. Our motto is “Come Hungry, Leave Happy!” Hope to see you soon!

Preparation of the Deceased Part 3

Raj Dhanda

Funeral Director DIGNITY FUNERAL HOMES

The body of the decea deceased Sikh is bathed and attired in clean clothing. This is usually done by family members. The hair is covered with a turban or traditional scarf as was usually worn by the individual. The five articles of faith worn by a Sikh in life remain with the body in death. They include: • Kachhera, an undergarment • Kanga, a wooden comb • Kara, a steel or iron bracelet • Kes, uncut hair (and beard) • Kirpan, a short sword. Thereafter, the body is transferred into a casket or is put on a plank of wood

and covered with white fabric which symbolizes peace and purity. If the body of a dying or dead person is on a cot or bed, it must not be taken off the cot and put on the floor. Nor must a lit lamp be placed beside, him/her or any other ceremony performed. Only Gurbani should be recited or “Waheguru, Waheguru” repeated by his/her side. Hymns are recited by the congregation which induce feelings of detachment. The survivors must not grieve or raise a hue and cry or indulge in breast beating. To induce a mood of resignation to God’s will, it is desirable to recite Gurbani or repeat “Waheguru”.
