Drinking driving laws tough on local businesses Local pubs and restaurants were hurt when the HST came into effect, but now owners are being driven to drink by tough new impaired driving laws that bring stiff penalties for drivers who are caught behind the wheel with a blood-alcohol reading of 0.05 to 0.08, which is the level that used to warrant a 24-hour licence suspension. Owners, and their industry associations are asking the government to make changes before they are driven out of business. A4

Tougher penalties came into effect on Sept. 20 for anyone caught driving with a blood alcohol content of .05 or more. Police can now issue an immediate roadside prohibition if your breath sample is in the “warn” range (between .05 and .08). A “warn” results in a three-day driving prohibition and the vehicle being impounded for three days on a first offence. The prohibition is for seven days for a second offence and 30 days for a third, with the vehicle being impounded for the same number of days at the discretion of the police. Anyone with a bloodalcohol level of over .08 is subject to a 90-day driving prohibition and a 30-day vehicle impoundment. Drivers are also responsible for all related towing and storage costs, administrative penalties that range from $200 to $500, and a $250 fee to have their licence reinstated.

Injection drug addicts are at much greater risk of catching and spreading disease in the Fraser Health region because health authority officials have failed to deliver on the promise of their harm reduction policy, reform advocates charge. They say access to needle exchanges, safe injection sites and methadone clinics is much poorer than in the Vancouver area – largely due to opposition from hostile city councils and police forces who think an abstinence policy is best. “Fraser Health has failed to en-

sure needles and injection supplies are available in all regions of Fraser Health,” said Ann Livingston, an advocate with the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU). “There’s no place in Abbotsford for an addict to get a needle legally,” David Murray of the B.C./Yukon Association of Drug War Survivors told the Fraser Health board Nov. 2. They say Abbotsford is a particular trouble spot because the city has a bylaw banning harm reduction strategies, including needle exchanges, injection sites and methadone dispensaries – even though the city has one of the highest Hepatitis C infection rates

in the province. Abbotsford’s bylaw is under review and Livingston wants Fraser officials to step up the pressure to scrap it. Fraser Health CEO Nigel Murray said the authority respects and complies with Abbotsford’s bylaw but is in talks with the city “to come up with the best solution possible” to expand harm-reduction efforts. Abbotsford Mayor George Peary confirmed Fraser Health is advocating for harm reduction. “They have to treat the people with Hepatitis C and it’s costly,” he said.

Joe Paliotti, owner of Pailotti’s Italian Restaurant in Abbotsford and Maple Ridge, said he has been in the restaurant business for more than 30 years and has never seen anything hit the industry this hard. “People are just not going out ... They are scared out of their mind,” he said. Paliotti said he has been open for lunch every day since opening in Abbotsford four years ago, but is now thinking of closing the restaurant during those hours. He said people were already practising responsible drinking, and there was no need to issue such stiff penalites. “This law has to go.” Renee Pain, assistant general manager at the Duke of Dublin Olde Irish Pub, said the new laws were instituted without any kind of relief to businesses. “They’ve thrown us in the deep end with our hands cuffed behind our backs and said, ‘Have fun!’ “ she said.

NewsBytes SUDDEN DEATH An autopsy will be performed on a man who died Wednesday night after collapsing in the area of Gladys Avenue and George Ferguson Way. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the 52-year-old Abbotsford man was seen to be stumbling around before he collapsed. Paramedics arrived on the scene, and the man was conscious while they tended to a head injury he suffered in the fall. Police also attended because it was not yet apparent what had caused the man to collapse. The man then went into cardiac arrest and died. MacDonald said the man did not have signs of intoxication, and the incident is most likely linked to a medical condition.

Campbell staying on into 2011 Plans to oversee major initiatives in coming months Tom FLETCHER Black Press

Premier Gordon Campbell at the opening of the Special Olympics in Abbotsford.

Premier Gordon Campbell intends to remain in charge for the next four to five months, implementing his latest wave of policy directives and directing the B.C. government as it heads into a spring budget. Campbell took questions from reporters in Vancouver Thursday, a day after announcing he will leave office as soon as the B.C. Liberal Party can hold a leadership convention to replace him. He said he will stay on as premier until another leader is chosen, and remain as MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey after that. “We’ve launched a pretty aggressive program for the spring legislative agenda,” Campbell said. “We have the second largest provincial income tax cut that we’ve had. We still have a

budget to go through, initiatives with regard to early childhood learning and development that we’re going to do. “We’ve got major initiatives to try and ensure we’ve got a stable health care system in the long term. I’ll be premier until that time.” Campbell said he expects the next party leader will support the 15 per cent cut to personal income taxes starting Jan. 1, and “strengthening the private sector economy,” his key justification for implementing the harmonized sales tax. A new leader from inside government will have been part of those decisions, and an outsider would support the philosophy that led to the government’s latest moves, he said. Campbell rejected suggestions that he was driven by low support in polls or an internal party effort to push him out. He said the decision point came after last week’s televised address, in which he unveiled the income tax cut and expanded programs for early childhood education. “When people start talking about the premier’s popularity as opposed to a way of

Abbotsford residents won’t be voting online any time soon. A proposal to investigate online voting for municipal elections has uncovered several hurdles. In addition to concerns regarding security, voter intimidation and the ability to audit, the Local Government Act does not permit online voting and no changes to the act are presently being contemplated. “I’m a realist, it will be for another day,” said Coun. Simon Gibson who first suggested the idea. “Technology will be used much more widely once the security issues are solved.”

DUHRE GROUP The Duhre Group, which Abbotsford Police recently revealed as a dominant gang in the community, has become a concern in the Smithers area, according to police there. Smithers RCMP announced in a statement on Wednesday that a small group of people have “openly flaunted their association with ... the organized crime gang know as the Duhre Group.” RCMP said the group has displayed firearms and may be intimidating or threatening people. They made the announcement while pointing out emerging drug trafficking trends in Smithers.

Peary: Are drug users criminals or victims?

harm reduction report for council to review and while it was supposed to be ready this fall, Peary said “fall is quickly running out.” “We hope to have it before Christmas,” said Peary. He called the harm reduction debate an ethical argument. “It comes down to the perception you have of drug users. Are they criminals or victims?” He believes council’s opinion will be split and expects plenty of debate once the report is complete. Abbotsford is also the host city for this weekend’s Hepatitis Council of B.C. 2010 conference, taking place at the Best Western on Marshall

Road. While Abbotsford is often used as an example, harm reduction is a concern throughout the Valley. Fraser Health distributes only seven per cent of the needles in the province despite having at least a quarter of B.C.’s injection drug addicts and the largest population of any health region in B.C. There are an estimated 14,000 to 16,000 injection drug users in Fraser, about the same as in the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, according to estimates Livingston circulated. But provincial statistics show Vancouver Coastal distributes three million needles

a year, while Fraser hands out just 400,000. More needles are distributed even in much less populous regions, such as the Interior (473,000 needles), Northern (453,000) and Vancouver Island (984,000) health authorities. Wilkinson said the numbers mean large numbers of addicts in Fraser are sharing dirty needles and likely spreading Hepatitis C, HIV and AIDS, highlighting a huge gap between Fraser’s “commendable” harm reduction policy and what happens on the ground. David Portesi, Fraser Health’s director of health promotion and prevention, did not dispute the numbers and

confirmed resistance from local officials is a problem. “When you have a police force and municipal leadership that are anti-harm reduction, even if we do have ways to get around the laws, the harrassment of clients can reduce or almost eliminate effective harm reduction services in that particular area,” he said at the board meeting. But Portesi said the challenge is not merely to change local laws, but to also build community support. “We do need to increase our distribution of needles in Fraser Health,” he said. Nearly all Lower Mainland cities have bylaws banning possession of drug para-

phernalia. The only exception is Vancouver, which bans their display for sale in store windows but allows users to carry syringes or crack pipes. Wilkinson said such bylaws are routinely used in many Lower Mainland municipalities to ticket users, even those carrying Fraser Healthprovided syringes.

Many pharmacies won’t sell needles to people they think are drug users, she added. Livingston said studies elsewhere show harm reduction strategies cut disease, improve public order and increase the likelihood addicts will seek treatment. VANDU is recommending Fraser ensure syringes and safe

said the new penalties are compounded by a lack of transportation options for customers who want to imbibe. Public transit has limited routes and hours, and the number of cabs permitted in Abbotsford has not grown, she said. The pub has considered offering its own service, but the purchase of a vehicle and the applicable insurance are costly. Pain said the Duke of Dublin – and other establishments – have implemented a designated driver program that provides

free non-alcoholic drinks for the driver all evening, as well as other rewards, such as a free appetizer. ABLE BC has asked the provincial government to take another look at the new laws. Attorney General Mike de Jong, also MLA for Abbotsford West, acknowledged that the tougher penalties have affected businesses. “There’s no question that the value and volume of business has declined,” he said. De Jong said “some strategies” are being considered to

alleviate the impact on pubs and restaurants, but wouldn’t elaborate at this time. “What we want to do is work with the restaurant and pub owners to ensure that people understand what the objective is here – to remind people what the laws are around drinking and driving, but it is not to discourage them from going out and having a good time.” Esposito said changes need to happen urgently, not months down the road. “For a lot of businesses, that will be too late,” he said.

From A5

increasing people’s take-home pay, the premier’s popularity as opposed to how we can really lift our kids up and take full advantage of the opportunities of the education system in the 21st century, it’s clearly time for

a change,” Campbell said. The B.C. Liberal Party’s biennial convention was set to begin Nov. 19 in Penticton. Party president Mickey Patryluk announced late Wednesday that it has been postponed until a leadership convention can be

4X

arranged. The party also released results of a members’ vote held this summer and fall, saying 84 per cent of party members still supported Campbell as leader.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Premier resigns

Have tough new impaired driving laws affected your drinking habits?

The problem that got Gordon to where he is still remains. That would be the HST and the Liberal party lies. Until the HST and lies are over and done with, don’t ask for my vote.

To answer, go to abbynews.com

Mr. Rogers Yes, Campbell’s legacy is everywhere, unregulated drug houses in the past, due to deregulating them from the community licensing act, leaving neighbourhods struggling for years, until the municipality figured out a way to regulate them. Increased homelessness, crowded classrooms, cuts to teacher aids for children with learning disabilites, overcrowded ERs and surgery cutbacks at hospitals, mental health services. And all this after almost five years of unprecedented economic prosperity, due to a construction industry boom and then, billions in debt, putting us right back where we started with the NDP. Nature

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Did Premier Campbell’s televised address change your opinion on the HST? YOU RESPONDED:

YES: 10% NO: 90%

Campbell’s out, but who will take his place? Frank

Bucholtz Guest shot Premier Gordon Campbell is stepping aside, and at this very early stage, it appears Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts would be his most logical successor – if the coalition which makes up the BC Liberals truly wants to win the next election. Why Watts? She has the enormous advantage of not being part of the government which made the decision to bring in the HST. It’s the HST and the furious reaction to it, and more specifically the successful petition drive, that led to Campbell’s decision to leave office. He really had no choice. If he’d stayed on, the party would have been decimated. Watts has also shown that she has considerable vision and is not overly partisan, something that has endeared

her to Surrey residents. Those are great attributes for a premier. Watts has not specifically said she plans to run. However, she remains a BC Liberal Party member. Just last week, she was at a large fundraiser (with 500 in attendance) for Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman, and she regularly appears at a variety of Liberal events. Current members of the cabinet have the same high profile. However, they are all tainted by the decision to bring in the HST, no matter how talented and personable they may be. Only Blair Lekstrom, the former energy minister, had the chutzpah to resign his portfolio over the HST. That gives him credibility, but at present he remains outside the BC Liberal caucus and it’s very tough for an MLA for northern B.C. to have a high enough profile to win a leadership race. Being on the inside will make it so hard for people like Health Minister Kevin Falcon, MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale, who is almost certain to put

his hat into the ring. Falcon is young, ambitious, has an abundance of energy and has held some very major jobs such as transportation and health. He is also a polarizing figure, as he comes from the right side of the party and has alienated some BC Liberals

Current members of the cabinet... are all tainted by the decision to bring in the HST, no matter how talented and personable they may be. who lean more to the left. It is unlikely that any of the other Surrey Liberal MLAs will run for leader. Stephanie Cadieux is a new MLA and newest member of cabinet; Dave Hayer is low-profile in the province (although well-known and

well-liked in Surrey) and Gordon Hogg has, at least mildly, been on the outside in recent years. He is a former cabinet minister and roommate of Campbell’s in Victoria, but has not held a position of responsibility for some time. He isn’t too old for the job and is a proven leader as former mayor of White Rock. He may well give the idea some consideration, but mounting a leadership campaign would be a challenge. His public support of the HST will also hurt him, particularly with the general public. If Campbell had resigned just after the success of the Winter Olympics, he may well have set up the BC Liberals to triumph again. By waiting this long, and particularly by letting the ant-HST forces dominate the public policy discussions for most of this year, he’s left the party in a mess. Cleaning it up will be a big job for his successor. Frank Bucholtz is the editor of the Langley Times.

Time to close Dunach

Dunach Elementary needs to be closed after this school year ends. The experts (engineers) that recommended the school needs to be closed due to high maintenance costs must be listened to. The school board cannot ignore their recommendation for the second year in a row. In addition, how can a school run with classes that are half full? There are other schools within walking distance to Dunach and kids

need to go there. There are too many rural schools that are open and are not operating at capacity. It is time for the school board to close Dunach and then move onto closing other schools that are not operating at capacity. Other schools that need to be taken into consideration for closure are Mt. Lehman, Bradner, Ross and Barrowtown elementary schools. Dave Sohi

Committed to saving school

On behalf of the Dunach Elementary parent community and the Dunach Advocacy Team, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the school district staff and trustees. We appreciate the value of your time and your undivided attention to our concerns. We are very passionate about the value of our school, both to its children and to the community at large. It is a unique school of choice, perhaps one that may be seen as a hidden jewel of Abbotsford. We trust that we were able to express ourselves with clarity and sufficient content to give you a broader perspective of the issues at hand. There are many alternatives to closure including new proposals, cost savings, and a desire to partner with you to promote our school, and the western rural schools. We sincerely hope that you will give all of these aspects your thorough consideration. We are genuine in our desire to partner with you to make Dunach Elementary a continuing success story. We are committed to our children’s

A man who was charged with sex offences and breaches in three communities, including Abbotsford, has been sentenced to six and a half months in prison on top of time already served. Ryan Edward Donnelly, 31, was acquitted of the sexual assault of two teenage girls, but was convicted of 11 other offences, including possession of child pornography and numerous breach charges for not following his bail conditions. Donnelly was convicted on June 28, following a 24-day trial in New Westminster Supreme Court. He was sentenced Sept. 16. The offences arose mostly in Surrey, but also in Abbotsford and 100 Mile House. The reasons for sentence stated that police seized two computers from Donnelly in June 2008 after allegations of sexual abuse were filed against him. Forensic examination revealed one of the

computers contained 10 videos showing young children in sexual activity with adults, while the other had 20 videos. As a condition of the bail set at that time, he was prohibited from using a computer. On Nov. 27, 2008, police received a report that Donnelly was using a computer, which was then found to have 12 videos containing child pornography. He was also found in possession of a prohibited weapon – a butterfly knife – and was found to be residing at a home not approved in writing by his bail supervisor. His roommate at the time had a young daughter. In his sentencing, Justice Terry Schultes took into account that Donnelly had not been convicted of any sexual offences against other people. However, Schultes said his offences had to be taken seriously by the courts. “Possession of child pornography is a perpetuation of the extremely serious victimization of children because it reproduces the harm that was done to them originally, potentially over and over again, for the sexual gratification of the person who possesses it,” the judge stated in his report. Schultes sentenced Donnelly to a total of 32 months for all his offences, but subtracted the time already served, leaving a concurrent period of six months and 15 days. In addition to jail time, Donnelly was given three years’ probation and must abide by conditions that include no contact with anyone under the age of 16, no accessing of the Internet at any time by any means, and the completion of any programs – including sex offender treatment – recommended by his probation officer. He also has a 10-year order prohibiting him from attending areas where children are expected to be present, including daycares, playgrounds and community centres.

Students demand link Bring petition to council Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

The time is right for a direct bus service linking the University of the Fraser Valley campuses in Abbotsford and Chilliwack. That’s the message delivered to council this week by the group Students for Sustainability. Daniel van der Kroon, a UFV student, spoke on behalf of more than 5,000 people who signed a petition calling for the transit service. “There is no way to get between the two facilities, except for the Greyhound bus,” van der Kroon told council, urging them to improve travel between the cities. It was a busy day for the UFV students, as they had already been aboard a bus to deliver the petition to Chilliwack council, before heading back to Abbotsford. According to Students for Sustainability, 17,300 trips are made from Chilliwack to Abbotsford or Mission each day. And 14,800 trips leave Abbotsford destined for Chilliwack. “We are asking our elected leaders if they will commit to work towards better inter-municipal public transportation in the short term,” said van der Kroon.

Plan

Council praised the students for showing an interest in their communities. “I love your vision for sustainability,” said Coun. Patricia Ross. “It is a worthy initiative, no doubt about it,” said Coun. Lynne Harris. After the meeting, Abbotsford Mayor George Peary suggested, while it’s not his decision to make, perhaps council could look at a trial, one-semester-long experiment to see how many people would use the service. “Anything we did do would have to be a joint, 50-50 venture with Chilliwack and Abbotsford,” he said. Negotiations would also have to include BC Transit. Peary said students would likely be the only patrons of the service because of a lack of transit options once passengers arrive. “Some people think our transit service is limited . . . Chilliwack is not blessed with a robust transit system,” said Peary.

A fire early Wednesday morning destroyed a barn on the Vicarro Ranch property on McKee Peak in east Abbotsford. Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service (AFRS) responded to reports of an explosion and fire on the property, located at 35220 Cassiar Ave., at 12:40 a.m. The barn was engulfed in heavy smoke and flames when crews arrived, and the roof had already collapsed. Deputy Fire Chief Dale Unrau said the building was being used for the storage of vehicles and other materials, including some hazardous products such as welding supplies. Additional auxiliary fire halls were called to provide a water supply, using tender trucks and fire hydrants. A total of 40 firefighters and 10 apparatus responded. The blaze is under investigation by AFRS and the Abbotsford Police. The cause and damage estimate have not yet been released. JOHN VAN PUTTEN

Several vehicles were destroyed in the barn fire on the Vicarro Ranch property. Vicarro Ranch is the site of a planned 1,400unit residential development in the McKee Peak/Eagle Mountain area. The project will encompass 160 hectares (395 acres). Construction could begin next year. It is currently a cattle ranch and the home of one of Abbotsford’s pioneer families, the Tretheweys. This is the second barn on the property that has been destroyed by fire. The first, in May 2006, was deemed suspicious. It destroyed business records, inventory and a large amount of exotic hardwoods. Damage was estimated at $150,000. The adjacent barn, containing several vehicles, was saved from fire damage at that time.

Motorists hoping for a quick end to costly AirCare tests appear to be on the road to disappointment. The Lower Mainland’s vehicle air emission testing program should be renewed and continued until at least 2020, according to the findings of a multiagency review. Although the program has become less relevant as new cars get steadily cleaner, the report of the AirCare Review Committee says the air quality benefits justify continuing it. “Termination of the AirCare program would result in increased emissions that would cause negative health impacts on all residents of the Lower Fraser Valley,” it says. “The cost of AirCare inspections impact only motorists with vehicles more than seven years old, yet all citizens benefit from improved air quality.” Consultants note the $45-million annual

deterrent to neglecting the repair of emissions-related defects or overt disabling of emission controls.” The decision still depends on both the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley regional district boards endorsing a continued program later this month, as well as provincial government approval. FVRD board chair Patricia Ross has already said she would be reluctant to dismantle AirCare and some Metro politicians have also said they would support renewal.

Did you know...

Health for you and your family

Brrrrrrrrrr ... it’s shaping up to be a chilly winter in B.C. A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM

A17

The region is heading into a La Niña year that could create the worst winter weather since 1955, according to some experts, and the Farmers’ Almanac is also calling for a cooler winter with above-average snowfall. Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips says it can be difficult to accurately predict a seasonal forecast, but notes La Niña years are usually cooler, frostier and snowier. “It really comes down to which way the winds are blowing,” Phillips says. “This year, the ugly sister of El Niño – La Niña – is expected. (La Niña winters) typically give us more arctic air than Pacific air ... our outlook shows the flavour for this winter is colder than normal through the province.” Phillips notes that when El Niño and La Niña are involved, it increases the chances of getting the weather

that is predicted. He looked at all La Niña winters since 1950, and says since then, there have been 18 La Niña winters

locally. Of those 18, 13 winters were colder than average and five winters were warmer than average. “That tells you that

there are no guarantees, but it also tells you that for every warmer-than-average winter, there were three colder winters,” he says. Twelve of those 18 winters were snowier than normal, but six were not.

And in the past five La Niña winters, three were warmer, one was normal, and one was a little cooler, Phillips says. “It may not necessarily be the winter from hell, but likely, we’ll have more winter than we had last year.”

Caution: Bad winter ahead! Prepare today with a BCAA Membership! A dead battery or locking your keys in the car can become potentially dangerous when the weather turns nasty. And with all the talk of a harsh winter on the way, it’s time to think about a BCAA Membership to protect the ones you love. With BCAA’s legendary Road Assist service, you can be certain that help is never far away.

outstanding ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Saturday, November 6, 2010

Fundraising drive Recently the Ford Motor Company of Canada and MSA Ford hosted a Drive One 4 UR Community event to benefit the Twisters Gymnastics Club. Drive One 4 UR Community events raise funds for deserving community groups and sports teams by donating $20 for each participant who test drives a new Ford vehicle at the event, for up to a total of $6,000. Last Saturday’s event was a success and Abbotsfordians helped to raise the full $6,000 for the Twisters Gymnastics Club. But MSA Ford isn’t stopping at $6,000. The dealership is hosting two more Drive One 4 UR Community events this weekend, one to benefit the St John Brebeuf Regional Secondary drama troupe’s production of Fiddler on the

WIEBE HONOURED Christine Wiebe (centre) and her husband Chuck talk with one of many guests who paid tribute to Christine’s long history of volunteer work. Celebrating the Spirit of Christine took place Nov. 3 at the Reach Gallery. JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News

The Pirates of the C from the Clearbrook Branch of BMO, along with teams from seven area branches helped raise $7,800 in the Bool-athon for the Kids Help Phone.

Stacie Motala of Deroche test drives a 2011 Ford Fiesta. Roof, and one on Saturday to benefit the Abbotsford Christian School’s drama troupe, with a possible twoweek fundraising total of $18,000. In order for both the St. John Brebeuf drama troupe and Abbotsford Christian School drama

troupe to receive $6,000, both events need 300 test drives. The SJB event was on Friday. The ACS event will be held today (Saturday) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the school site at 35011 Old Clayburn Rd.

Three $2,000 scholarships For local residents Amanda Chesley, James Gourley and Carson Williams, good grades and hours of volunteer work have paid off – the recent grads were chosen out of almost 100 applicants to receive $2,000 Envision Financial Education Awards. For St. Jean Brebeuf graduate Chesley, volunteering is an important part of life. For the past three years she has volunteered as a Special Olympics swim coach. The straightA student also played on St. Jean Brebeuf ’s volleyball and basketball teams, and assumed a leadership role in the fundraising initiative Smile Train, which raised approximately $5,000 for cleft palate surgeries in the developing world. Now studying Psychology at Trinity Western University, Chesley hopes to become a youth counselor. Gourley is studying Engineering at the University of the Fraser Valley. As a high school student at Abbotsford Traditional Secondary School,

Gourley was an active member of the school’s leadership committee, where he helped organize school social events and charity drives. The straight-A student also spent considerable time as an Abbotsford Minor Baseball umpire mentor and a volunteer with the Abbotsford Children’s Theatre. During his time at Abbotsford Collegiate, Williams balanced school work with positions on the football and basketball teams. He also volunteered with the 4-H Beef Club and became involved with the Abilitas Foundation, which offers accessible outdoor adventures for children and adults with disabilities or cancer. Williams was recruited by the UBC football team where he is quarterback. Since 1996, Envision Financial has disbursed $381,000 in scholarship funds to 219 high-school and postsecondary students across British Columbia.

These three young men, Simon, Wesley and Steven Àed Romania when they were only teenagers, in search of religious freedom. Simon and Wesley were locked and sealed in a container and placed aboard a container vessel where they spent 2 weeks in total darkness as they journeyed to a destination unknown. They ran out of food, water, air and hope. Just when despair ¿lled that container and death was all but certain, God provided another of many miracles in this incredible real life story of faith and perseverance.

Curator talk on railway art The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford is hosting a curator’s talk by well-known Canadian art historian and curator Roger Boulet on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 1 p.m. Boulet guest curated Vistas: Artists on the Canadian Pacific Railway, organized and circulated by the Glenbow Museum of Calgary. Vistas, currently on exhibition at The Reach, features a stunning body of artwork, the first to reveal the Canadian West as a desirable, majestic and awe-inspiring destination. Boulet is an independent art historian who has written extensively on art in Canada. In addition to his significant knowledge of the work of CPR artists and CPR historical photography, Boulet is the author of numerous books on Canadian art and artists. Vistas: Artists on the Canadian Pacific Railway presents original works by over 20 Canadian artists who, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, were commissioned by CP to paint, photograph and film the “new west.� It was an historic undertaking at an exciting time in Canada’s history, and it resulted in art that has since become iconic imagery of the railway and the west. Many of these works have not been seen for decades. Artists in the exhibition include Frederic Marlett Bell-Smith, Albert Bierstadt, William Brymner, Forshaw Day, John Colin Forbes, John Hammond, and photographer William McFarlane Notman. Many of the artists were founding members of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, established in 1880. Vistas: Artists on the Canadian Pacific Railway runs until Jan. 9, 2011 Admission to the exhibition and the curator’s talk is free. For more information, contact Scott Marsden at 604-864-8087 ext.122.

FACT: Homes with aluminum wiring are 55 times more likely to have a ďŹ re hazard condition present.

Obviously, replacing all the aluminum wire with copper wire is the best, worry free solution. But there is another option which the BC Safety Authority recognizes as a safe and acceptable alternative to a complete home wiring replacement. We have frequently seen this repair attempted incorrectly, which means the homeowner has received no beneďŹ t for the effort or their investment, so having the work done to Code by a trained professional is critical. Our technicians are both skilled and experienced at this cost effective way of addressing your aluminum wiring problems and reducing the risk of ďŹ re and electrical problems in your home. Aside from the safety beneďŹ t, addressing this problem may even have a positive affect on your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resale value and homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insurance rate.

ABBOTSFORD NEWS I Saturday, November 6, 2010

JOHN VAN PUTTEN

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Heat rookie forward Bryan Cameron was a prolific goal-scorer in junior hockey, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still looking for his first goal as a professional.

Aiming for breakthrough Heat rookie sniper Bryan Cameron looks to shake season-opening slump Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Up until this fall, goal-scoring came as naturally as breathing for Bryan Cameron. Playing for the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League last season, the 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;10â&#x20AC;? forward led all of Canadian junior hockey with 53 goals. Over five OHL seasons, he never scored fewer than 20. But after all that feasting, the first month of Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural pro campaign has been a famine. The Abbotsford Heat rookie has come up empty in the goal-scoring department, with just a pair of assists and a -2 rating to show for his first 11 AHL

games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little tough sometimes,â&#x20AC;? Cameron acknowledged with a wry grin after Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to start coming soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually with me, it comes in bunches. Last year, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score a goal for the first five games or something like that. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not too worried about it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about making sure when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m out there, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing what I can do.â&#x20AC;? Cameron, 21, has spent the bulk of his even-strength minutes on the Heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third or fourth line, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been getting a regular shift on the power play. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has had a few good looks in front of the net, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

been somewhat snake-bitten, hitting the post/crossbar at least three or four times already. Some players take quickly to the pro game straight out of junior, but Heat head coach Jim Playfair has sensed Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transition has been a little more difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to get a lot more engaged in every game,â&#x20AC;? Playfair said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have 18 shots on goal in 11 games and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a goal-scorer, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not getting anywhere near enough. I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to get up to three or four shots a game to put himself in a position to be a goalscorer again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wants to be a good player,

he wants to be a competitive guy, he wants to help the team win. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a bit of a learning curve for him to realize that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to play to his strengths, which is being quick on pucks and getting pucks to the net.â&#x20AC;? Cameron said that a big part of the pro transition is, opposing players make fewer mistakes than they do at the junior level, leaving him fewer opportunities to capitalize on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a little getting used to,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just trying to figure it out as quick as possible is the key.â&#x20AC;? Q The Heat are still captainless at this point, and Playfair hinted heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still waiting for

some dominoes to fall with the NHL parent Calgary Flames before he makes a final decision on that front. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important part of it for us,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The leadership group is being established over time. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still some potential movement that could go on that we want to be aware of, once Calgary gets healthy and we see what we end up with as a group down here.â&#x20AC;? Q The Heat commenced a Friday-Saturday set with the San Antonio Rampage last night, but that score was unavailable at press time. Visit the Heat Central page at abbynews. com for the final result.

The Robert Bateman junior football team edged crosstown rival Abby Collegiate 26-13 on Tuesday. T-Wolves defensive end Spencer Mavor had the big play, returning a fumble 30 yards for a touchdown to give Bateman a two-score lead. Ben Cummings caught a pair of scoring passes from Tanner Friesen, while John Beckerleg also found the end zone. Ricky Vanbugnum and Parm Sidhu each had an interception.

Primed for playoff debut UFV-TWU coaching match-up is mentor vs. pupil Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

For the entire University of the Fraser Valley women’s soccer program, Saturday’s playoff date with the Trinity Western Spartans is a seminal moment. It’s particularly so for Rob Giesbrecht, the Cascades’ firstyear head coach. Giesbrecht served six seasons (1999-2004) as an assistant under Spartans bench boss Graham Roxburgh and considers him a mentor. “It’s going to be fun,” predicted Giesbrecht, whose Cascades face the Spartans in the Canada West semifinals in Edmonton. “Graham is a very good friend of mine. He’s done a lot for me, he’s mentored me as a young coach. Going up against his program is a fun experience – you like to test

yourself against the best.” After helping the Spartans to their first national title in 2004, Giesbrecht departed for Seward, Nebraska to take a head coaching gig with the NAIA’s Concordia University Bulldogs. The Abbotsford native returned home over the GIESBRECHT summer, when UFV picked him to follow Colin Miller. Giesbrecht and Roxburgh usually touch base a couple times a week, with Giesbrecht picking his mentor’s brain on everything from the nearest Starbucks to the best hotels to stay at on the road. This week, though, it’s been a little quiet.

Charity bonspiel

Abbotsford Community Services is hosting its 19th annual “Curl for Kids” charity bonspiel on Dec. 5 at the Abbotsford Curling Club. The event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., costs $150 per team and includes curling, equipment rental, lunch and prizes. Prizes will be

awarded for the curling results, and to the i n d iv i d u a l s / t e a m s who raise the most pledges. The sign-up deadline for the event is Nov. 22. For more information, contact Barb Arthur via phone at 604-615-1632 or 604859-3524, or via email at barbaraarthur38@ hotmail.com.

“We’ve got to focus on our own teams right now,” Giesbrecht noted with a chuckle. In terms of women’s soccer tradition, UFV and Trinity are at opposite poles. Under Roxburgh, the Spartans have won three Canada West crowns and a trio of national titles (2004, 2008 and 2009). The Cascades, meanwhile, are celebrating their first playoff appearance in five CIS seasons. Nevertheless, Giesbrecht says his squad will enter the game with confidence. “The only way we know how to play is pedal-to-the-metal,” he said. “If we sit back and just try to defend, we’re really going to feel the wrath of Trinity’s ability. Whereas if we can attack them and play a little more assertively, maybe we can even things out.”

Regier golden at regional meet A gold medal-winning skate by Jaclyn Regier highlighted a four-medal weekend for the Abbotsford Skating Club. Regier finished atop the bronze interpretive division at the B.C. Coast Regionals, held in Mission last week. Three other local figure skaters won silver, including Madison Johnson (juvenile ladies), Julia Soto (performance level) and Emily Haw (performance level).

Canadian Tire, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest hockey retailer, and the National Hockey League today announced that Canadian Tire has signed a partnership agreement with the NHLÂŽ to become the Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OfďŹ cial Sporting Goods Retailer of the NHL in Canada. The agreement includes a hat trick of exciting announcements: a ďŹ ve-year NHL partnership, the launch of the NHL-powered Canadian Tire Hockey School (CTHS) and the naming of Stanley Cup winner and Olympic Gold Medalist Jonathan Toews as CTHS founding member and ofďŹ cial spokesperson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest retailer of sporting equipment and a brand steeped in Canadian history, Canadian Tire is who Canadians trust for their ďŹ rst pair of skates, stick, helmet and pads. Over the past 90 years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve equipped millions of ďŹ rst-time hockey players, like Jonathan Toews, from head to toe,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Arnett, President of Canadian Tire Retail. Further developing a grassroots connection in Canadian communities, Canadian Tire will launch the Canadian Tire Hockey School NHL Skills Camps. These unique camps will provide Canadian minor hockey players the opportunity to develop and grow their skills through on and off ice skill development sessions led by experienced NHL hockey experts, with appearances by NHL alumni and coaches. In addition to becoming an OfďŹ cial NHL Partner in Canada, Canadian Tire will now be designated as an OfďŹ cial Partner of the NHL Heritage Classicâ&#x201E;˘, NHL All-Star Game, Stanley CupÂŽ Playoffs, Stanley Cup Final and NHL Face-Offâ&#x201E;˘. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Expanding our reach into new categories like this will continue to increase the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to reach and unite Canadian hockey fans.â&#x20AC;? Selling more hockey sticks and pucks than any other retailer in the world, Canadian Tire has been the inspiration for millions of hockey ďŹ rsts for players from coast to coast. The CTHS website will offer unparalleled content for Canadian hockey players, parents, coaches and fans. From how to play on a backyard rink or advance in a local house league, to knowing how hockey gear ďŹ ts and what it costs, CTHS will offer unique subject matter expertise and practical insights into how to mentor, parent and become a well-rounded player. CTHS members also will receive exclusive NHL-related offers and promotions, including a chance to win a trip with two tickets and VIP treatment to the NHL All-Star Game, the NHL Heritage Classicâ&#x201E;˘ and a Stanley Cup Final game.

Raj Dhanda

Funeral Director DIGNITY FUNERAL HOMES

Women are funer funeral directors? Wow! I thought they were all men with deep voices, pale skin, and old looking. Hi, my name is Rajkamal Dhanda. I am Indo Canadian and proud to be a woman funeral director. In 2004, I began my career. I was captivated by the kind of work that was involved in funeral services. The reason I chose this profession, is summarized in my personal mission statement: “to serve grieving families in a time of need.” Funeral service has enabled me to grow emotionally, socially and intellectually. Through my growth, I have committed myself to a new standard, through social responsibility. This is done by making appropriate recommendations based on my knowledge and recognizing the need for sensitivity towards an

individual’s response to death. My responsibility as a funeral director is to make the funeral as meaningful and personal to the families I serve. I continue to strive and learn the value, expectations, religious customs and socio economic norms of the families I serve. Death is both a universal and an individual experience that we go through. My experiences in life have provided me with a foundation, which is beneficial to the community of Abbotsford and to the company I work with. These diversified experiences in my life have afforded me the opportunities to become a successful funeral director. In the coming weeks, we will be looking into the Indo Canadian Funeral practices based on their customs and traditions.

KEMP, Marion It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mom and Nana. On September 10, 2010, Marion Kemp passed away at the age of 81 with her family by her side. She is survived by her son, Stephen (Trish), daughter Susan (Garth), daughter Marion (Brad), seven grandchildren, and eight greatgrandchildren. Also survived by her brother, Jim (May), and numerous family and friends both in Canada and the U.K. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 46 years, Stanley (“Tim”) Kemp. Marion was an amazing woman with an enormous capacity for love and the ability to connect with others that very few possess. Her greatest joys in life were her family, her volunteer work, and the simple pleasure of chatting with people she met in her daily travels. Those who were lucky enough to know her were instantly captured by her warmth and kindness. A memorial service will be held for Marion at Woodlawn Funeral Home, 2310 Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford, on Friday, November 12, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome to share in the celebration of this incredible woman.
