Family escapes landlord’s rampage Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Korinne Tjepkema was lying down for a nap when she was awakened by a bang. She jumped out of bed and ran to her husband Brian, who was in the living room with their two children, ages three and five. “What was that?” Korinne asked, thinking something had happened to one of the kids. “It’s him again,” Brian said, referring to the landlord who lived in the basement suite. For the first 11 months in the home, there had been none of this behaviour, but it had escalated in the last few weeks. The man would yell at the family from downstairs anytime the kids made noise. He would turn up his stereo full-blast, and then leave the residence. He often paced frantically back and forth around his living room, with the blinds open. Sometimes, he stood at the end of the driveway and stared at the family. Korinne and Brian believed these tactics were aimed at driving them out

They had tried to find a new place, but had been unsuccessful. They contacted police and were told they should move out as soon as possible. Now, the landlord was causing a commotion again. The couple heard a second bang. Brian set up a video camera to record the noise. Then there was a third

bang, followed by yelling and screaming. Brian went to the bottom of the stairs to listen, while Korinne called 911. The man was swearing, yelling and banging around. Brian ran back upstairs to tell Korinne to relay to the 911 operator what he had heard the man say. “He said he’s going to set the house on fire!” While Korinne was on

the phone, the man took a hammer to the basement door, which led to their part of the house and was locked from their side. When the heavy door wouldn’t budge, he left through the basement suite and hammered at the side of the house as he proceeded to the front.

‘Murder capital’ title – again Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford-Mission census metropolitan area (CMA) had the country’s top murder rate – 5.2 per 100,000 population – for the second consecutive year, according to Statistics Canada which released its national homicide rates on Tuesday, reiterating 2009 figures revealed in July as part of its annual report on crime. Abbotsford had 11 murders in 2009, but two of them – Joseph Randy, 18, and Dilsher Gill, 17 – were not counted in the Stats Can figures because they occurred on native land not included in the CMA. Mission had none in 2009. So far this year, Abbotsford has had four murders – compared to eight at the same time last year – and Mission has had one. This week’s report revealed additional information on national homicide statistics, but there was nothing new about Abbotsford, said Police Const. Ian MacDonald. He said it’s frustrating, once again, to have to defend the community’s reputation. “We’ve stepped up and accepted our homicide rate, and we’re doing something about it.” He said Abbotsford Police introduced new strategies this year – such as the formation of the gang suppression unit – that have resulted in a 15 per cent drop in violent crime. Based on current stats, Abbotsford-Mission is not likely

Restaurant rescue McDonald’s takes up cause of sick single mom Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

A single mom who’s ill and in dire financial straits is suddenly seeing brighter days, thanks to fellow employees and management at local McDonald’s franchises. Last Saturday, The News told the story of Stephnie Smith, who is sick with an undiagnosed illness, cannot work, and has been cut off from employment insurance benefits. Suffering severe stomach problems and rapidly losing weight, she has surgery scheduled for Nov. 25 that should determine what’s wrong. In the meantime, she has no source of income. On leave since June, her $375 bi-weekly EI payments ran out three weeks ago, and she has been told she no longer qualifies for EI sickness benefits, which run for a maximum of 15 weeks. With bills to pay and a three-year-old daughter to support, she has appealed that decision with Service Canada, which oversees employment insurance benefits. She was told it can take up to 30 days for the agency to even decide whether it will accept an appeal. Smith inquired about income assistance, but was told she does not qualify because she lives with family. Smith resides with

JOHN VAN PUTTEN

Abbotsford News

Stephnie Smith is getting critical financial assistance from her employer, McDonald’s. her sister, but she still has to support herself and her daughter. If she moves out, she can get welfare. “Our medical system doesn’t meet up with our EI system,” she said. On Tuesday, Smith walked into the McDonald’s restaurant where she worked, to pay her $40 health and benefits premiums. She was told the owner, Chuck Vertes, will be covering those expenses. What’s

more, the staff at the six Abbotsford and Aldergrove restaurants owned by Vertes are going to be taking up a collection for her, which will be topped up by the business. The restaurants will also make Stephanie and her daughter Daleen their Christmas family, meaning staff and customers can donate cash and presents to make sure the two have a happy holiday. Co-workers told Stephanie they just want to see her get better. And although she hasn’t worked in four months, she left the restaurant that day with a cheque for $500. “Knowing they’re there and they care is enough for me, but they went above and beyond,” she said in an emotion-filled voice. “They’re amazing.” Last Saturday’s newspaper article came as a shock to the McDonald’s community. “We had no idea her situation was so bad,” said Christy Patterson, administrative manager of the six stores. “I admire that she was at work. She could have been a person who relied on the system, but she worked,” added Patterson. “Now that she needs the system, they won’t help her. “The goal is to get enough to get her through the end of the year.” By that point, Smith is hopeful doctors will have learned what is causing her trouble, and she will be far enough into a course of treatment that she can return to work, back with the people who have come to her rescue. “I’m absolutely, so thankful.”

The sting, dubbed Project E-Pylorus, targeted drug dealers at the Nakusp Music Fest, the Kaslo Jazz Fest, Shambhala (near Salmo) and the Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament. The drugs involved include marijuana, LSD, magic mushrooms, ecstasy, cocaine and methamphetamines. The 21 suspects, ranging in age from 17 to 59, were all charged with drug trafficking. Most reside in B.C., while three are from Alberta and one is from Saskatchewan. No names have been released. The two Abbotsford men are both 24 years old. One faces five counts, and the other eight counts.

BURSARIES BOOSTED The Student Union Society (SUS) at University of the Fraser Valley will establish grants and bursaries following a $105,000 return on its investment in the My Safe Ride Home (MSRH) program. A cheque presentation was made last Thursday (Oct. 21) by MSRH co-founder Stephen Paul to the SUS, which incorporated MSRH as part of its U-Pass, providing unlimited access to local transit, recreation centres and other programs and services. One of these services is the MSRH program, which enables students with a U-Pass to call Central Valley Taxi in Abbotsford or Chilliwack Taxi if they need a safe ride home.

They waited there, while Brian stood guard at the top of the stairs, holding a broom pole for protection. The man threw the hammer against the glass beside the door and yelled at Brian through the gap. Then he ran back into his suite and banged around some more before returning to the front of the house, and sitting on the lawn. Police arrived,

Ian MacDonald said the man had poured cooking oil over the entire kitchen of his suite, and had turned on all four burners on the electric stove. He said police receive at least one call a day involving a tenant-landlord issue.

Fire off a new law With more and more B.C. municipalities, including Abbotsford, severely restricting public access to fireworks and their discharge, it is time for the province to step in and provide a uniform solution. The Fire Chiefs Association of B.C. has lobbied for this for some time in an effort to reduce the workload of its crews on or near holidays at which fireworks are traditionally used widely by the public. Municipalities are right to try to protect citizens from an activity that in the past has often caused serious personal injury or property damage. But as it stands, a patchwork of bylaws across B.C. makes it confusing for people who would like to set off fireworks in an appropriate manner, and reduces the effectiveness for cities trying to limit their use. Currently, the sale, possession or discharging of even so-called “low hazard” fireworks is prohibited in

Abbotsford. Used properly, fireworks can be an entertaining experience that can bring families and neighbours together. With a strong educational program highlighting the dangers involved, respect for this tradition can be garnered and appreciated. These positive steps can be taken not by depriving citizens of some enjoyment, but by addressing the problem at its root. Currently, there are no standards in Canada for manufacturing fireworks. They don’t come with instructions or a warning, or any safeguards to prevent injury or damage. Under a blanket regulation, the province could call on manufacturers to be more responsible and innovative, while still enabling citizens to enjoy their own private festivities. Compromise, after all, is something we can all celebrate. -Black Press

If only local taxes got attention Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views The B.C. government is expecting recommendations any day now from its task force set up to examine local taxation of industry. Here’s a tax issue that could use some of the public attention that’s been lavished on the anti-HST circus. It has smouldered for years with mill closures and flared up recently with a forest industry tax revolt against selected (mostly coastal) municipalities. Rich Coleman set the tone during his tour as forests minister, when he said local governments are “dining out” on their industrial base, overtaxing mills while giving a free ride to the residential voters who keep them in office. In some cases the mill is paying 20 times the tax rate of a homeowner, without regard to the local services actually consumed by each one. Finance Minister Colin Hansen got a

verbal draft of the task force’s recommendations at the end of September. He didn’t wait for the written version, giving his response to the key recommendation to mayors and councillors at their convention in Whistler. Do not expect a proposed $25 million transition fund for those municipalities who let their industrial taxes get out of control. “The ratio between the residential tax rates and the industrial tax rates in some communities is a problem for job creation and job retention in those communities that I think local governments have to deal with,” Hansen told reporters at the convention. “We want to be a supporting partner, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re simply going to be writing big cheques.” Hansen mentioned Powell River, one of the mill towns where Catalyst Paper withheld $15 million in property taxes and went to court to protest the rate. After municipalities’ right to set outrageous tax rates was upheld in court, Catalyst pleaded with Premier Gordon Campbell to provide some interim assistance to the communities. Paying their current costs means shutting the doors. Powell River got that

message, and began negotiating what it will take to keep its mill from shutting down, being dismantled and scrapped or shipped to Asia. Nanaimo came to that stage with the Harmac pulp mill and it has reined in its industrial taxation for new owners. Employees there also learned the hard way about pricing yourself out of the

Local governments are overtaxing their industrial base while giving a free ride to the residential voters

marketplace, buying shares, taking pay cuts and cranking up productivity to restore their jobs. The grind continues for towns such as Port Alberni. Catalyst workers there have voted 98 per cent to reject a company bid to reopen their contract, which

runs to 2012 and includes a three per cent wage increase set for next year. The union says the company wants concessions that add up to 21 per cent. If the local taxpayers won’t pay more to keep the mill going, the workers will have to, under this owner or the one that picks up the pieces after bankruptcy. Is the B.C. government going to ride to the rescue of these communities, many of which are growing on the residential side as the baby boom retires? No. And it shouldn’t, either. Municipal leaders came away from their convention with a faint hope that cabinet will consider some kind of aid in the spring budget. But Hansen said that would send a poor message to communities with more reasonable tax rates. The province would be using their tax money to subsidize communities that have been gouging industry. It’s a low-profile version of the harmonized sales tax debate. Consumers, in this case consumers of roads and sewers, are being asked to pay their way.

letters Regarding story of local mom, Stephnie Smith, fighting illness and loss of income. On behalf of the McDonald’s restaurant franchise owner, where Stephanie Smith is currently on medical leave, we would like to thank The Abbotsford News for printing her story. We were not aware that her situation had become so dire. As a result of reading your story, all six of our franchise locations

in Abbotsford and Aldergrove have been notified, and the staff are pulling together and making donations from their paycheques. Stephnie and her daughter will also be our Christmas family this year. We are like a family here, and we are happy to help one of our own. Thanks again for making her story public. Christy Patterson

City eating up valley The news that an industrial park is planned on an orchard of our agricultural land , is sad news. In years past, those who established the land freeze were certainly people of wisdom. Those who fail to respect that impor-

tant decision cause all of us to become losers in this lovely, fertile valley. The ‘city in the valley’ will ‘eat up’ the valley. Is city hall really saying that there is no room within our city limits for industrial development ?

Owners of properties in the valley are now encouraged to sell their land, beginning to neglect it, and so causing our fruit production to suffer a serious loss. Let’s honour that land freeze. How about a plebiscite? Wally Kroguletz

says the project might not be approved for P3 status, or at least not all of it. He said most private businesses won’t have any interest in laying the pipes. “It may just be the water treatment portion of the project that qualifies,” he said. While some are concerned about involving private business in the city’s water supply, Peary is not worried. “We have the poster boy for P3 projects in our backyard,” he said, referring to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital. The final public budget meeting is scheduled for tonight (Oct. 28) at 7 p.m. at the Matsqi Centennial Auditorium (32315 South Fraser Way).

Abbotsford Homeowners Want to Know The Value of Their Home, But Are Afraid to Ask! Abbotsford – A hassle-free service allows homeowners to receive up to date real estate market information speciÀc to their home without having to meet with a real estate agent. Some homeowners are reluctant to meet with a realtor as they may only be in the early stages of planning a move or may not yet know if they will move. “Should we sell or stay? How much equity do we actually have?” Often these questions cannot be answered without knowing the current value of your home. Determining the value of your home is based largely on comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold. This comparative approach should consider several factors – features of each home, location, neighbourhood, length of time on the market, etc. However, access to this type of information is generally re-

served for the real estate agents and their clients. This free service provides each homeowner with a Real Estate Market Update speciÀc to their property. This update includes detailed sales information of similar homes that have recently sold within the homeowner’s area, as well as the current listings. This data includes a photograph of each home, asking prices and selling prices, the number of days on the market, price reductions and a complete description of each home. To have a free Market Update sent to you, specially tailored for your home, call this 24 hour free recorded message at 1-800-251-4944, enter extension #4811. This hassle free, no obligation service is provided by Rod Poole of Landmark Realty Corp. You may also call Rod’s ofÀce directly at 604-309-6068.

Donors came forward in response to the Abbotsford SPCA’s recent appeal for help, but the situation is only slightly less dire. On Oct. 16, The News ran an article documenting how a Thanksgiving weekend break-in was the latest problem for the agency. Donations are off by about 50 per cent, or $58,000, this year. What’s more, adoptions of pets is on the decline, but the kennels are full to capacity. Abbotsford SPCA manager Jodi Dunlop said a handful of people came forward with donations that amounted to $1,600, which put “a small dent” in the budget shortfall. Two volunteers, Richard and Penny, donated their time to fix the cut fence and door which were damaged during the break-in. It was about a day and a half of work. Rona on Sumas Way donated the supplies. While the SPCA has received some help, it has also received ever more felines. The day after the public appeal, eight more arrived. “Our cat population is through the roof, and the public keeps trying to surrender them, and we just don’t have room,” said Dunlop.

Late goals decided both games between the Abbotsford Heat and Rochester Americans this week, and the home side tasted both elation and dejection. On Monday, Heat forward Jon Rheault scored the gamewinner at 1:16 of overtime, ripping a wrist shot past Rochester goalie Jacob Markstrom to lift Abbotsford to a 4-3 victory. Rookie centre Gaelan Patterson chipped in with two goals for the Heat, who posted their first win in three tries at the Abbotsford Entertainment Centre. “It felt great, because it’s been a little bit of a rough start for me,” acknowledged Rheault, who had just a single goal to show for the Heat’s first eight games. “Coach (Jim Playfair) challenged me to get back to my roots as a hard-working guy.” On Tuesday, it was Rochester’s Michal Repik who filled Rheault’s shoes as the hero. With Heat winger J.D. Watt in the penalty box for a high-sticking infraction late in the third period, Repik tracked down a

That goal snapped a 1-1 draw and stood up as the game-winner. The win boosted Rochester to the .500 mark at 4-4-1-0, while the Heat still sit atop the AHL’s North Division with a 5-4-0-1 record. “I took a penalty at a bad time, and lost the game for us,” Watt said afterward, shouldering the

blame. “I had a guy come to hit me, and I got my hands up to protect my face . . . I can’t take a penalty at that time.” The Heat started slowly on Tuesday – the Americans had them hemmed in their own zone for the first five minutes of the game, and that pressure yielded a goal by Evgeny Dadonov. The home side carried the play from that point, and lev-

eled the score late in the second period when Matt Keith scored off a Rochester defensive-zone turnover. “We didn’t get the start we wanted, but the last 40 minutes, we played the way we wanted to,” Keith said. ICE CHIPS: Q Heat defenceman Matt Pelech was taken to hospital Continued on A19

Bearcats going with youth movement Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

In light of the young faces that characterize the Columbia Bible College sports teams this season, perhaps a nickname change is in order. Instead of Bearcats, how about Bear Cubs? “We’re a really young program this year – we only have

a handful of returning athletes for all our teams,” CBC athletic director Rocky Olfert acknowledged. “It’s a lot of learning for all of us . . . but we’re seeing some really good things.” The Bearcats volleyball teams open the B.C. Colleges Athletic

Association regular season this weekend, hosting the UBC-Okanagan Heat on Friday (6 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.) and the Selkirk Saints on Saturday (1 p.m and 2:45 p.m.). The CBC hoopsters tip off the regular season next week in Victoria, where they take on the Camosun Chargers.

I was born and raised on a farm in Abbotsford and have lived here all my life. I’ve been very fortunate to have a well rounded career that has given me the tools to become a successful Realtor today. I worked in construction for a few years after graduation and then moved on to many years of sales at Blackwood Building Center. This is where I met a lot of great people and learned more about the building industry. After Blackwood’s I moved on to Agricultural Equipment and Sales industry where I met more great people over the next years. All the while I owned and ran my own poultry farm. I went on to help manage a large farming operation for a friend which included many types of poultry farms, hatcheries, organic dairy and a Sawdust supply trucking company. Real Estate seemed like a great fit for me so I got my real estate license and started selling homes and farms in 2004. My experience and hard work ethics has helped me to become one of Fraser Valley’s Top Realtors, becoming a Medallion Club award winner as well as receiving the Re/Max Hall of Fame Award. I believe that honesty and integrity will always bring you positive results and look forward to many years of meeting old friends and making new ones.

Hello again everyone! Hope you are well. I have now been selling real estate with Homelife in Abbotsford for almost 12 years! Wow does time fly! I have met many friends along the way and wanted to say thank you again for their support and referrals! Given the opportunity I will work hard to protect your interests and have the knowledge and experience to do so. I sometimes hear people say “oh I have seen your ad with the dog, I wish I would have called you when I bought or sold”. My hope is to hear that a little less this year! Give me a call and you will be pleased you did. I look forward to earning your business. Bailey (my dog) and I are awaiting your call. Dave Bishop

Born and raised in Abbotsford, I love living in the Fraser Valley and have always had an interest in Real Estate. I am as devoted to my career as I am to my growing family. When thinking of your next Real Estate transaction remember that you need a plan. A well thought out plan is the bridge to reaching your goals. As your Realtor I can ensure that working with me will help you establish your plan and to reach your Real Estate goals.

I was born and raised here in Abbotsford. I grew up on a farm in Mt. Lehman – and helped my dad and mom build spec homes locally through the 70s and early 80s. My family has watched this town grow from the small farming community it once was to the city it’s becoming today. When looking for a realtor to work with in today’s busy and competitive market, it’s important to choose someone who knows the history of the area, who understands the “whys” and the “hows” and can help you navigate the highs and the lows of buying and selling a house. If you’re like most, a home is the largest and most important investment you’ll ever make. It’s my job to provide you with the support, the information and the know-how that will help you make the best decision for you and for your family.

Q Under the stewardship of fourthyear head coach Janelle Rozema, the CBC women’s volleyball team has yet to miss the playoffs. Rozema has a new challenge this fall, as she’s got just one returning player on the roster. The good news is, that player is standout fourth-year libero Hannah Antonio. “Hannah is everything you want to build a team around,” Rozema said.

and Bateman grad Brady Kaethler. Q In terms of degree of difficulty, few coaches would relish the task ahead of CBC women’s basketball coach Jay Duke. CBC’s nine-player roster recently shrunk to five, after four players who had committed to the Bearcats changed their plans late in the summer. As many as four new recruits could join the team for the second semester, but in the meantime, it leaves the ’Cats in a precarious situation with no bench. “With five players, we have to be very efficient,” Duke observed. “We have to place a high value on decision-making.” Keywanna Kendrick, a six-foot centre from Georgia, will anchor the team, while Bateman grad Sharece Thoutenhoofd will also be a key contributor. “She’s a real hard worker. “I want to pass on all those qualities to the new, impressionable rookies.” April van Wieren, a 6’3” recruit out of Calgary, leads a solid rookie class that also features MEI product Chrysta McNicol. Q Columbia Place will be the host site for the BCCAA basketball provincials in March, and the Bearcats men are determined to make it to the party. “We’d love to be there,” bench boss Mike McLaverty said. “That’s our goal.” Forwards Matt Wirch and Chris Thompson are the returning veterans, and McLaverty will lean on them to provide leadership. The rookie class includes Chris Mader, a 6’5” centre out of Chilliwack’s Highroad Academy, From A18

MORTIMER, Patricia May ( nee Whyte) It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mom and nana. Mom’s battle with cancer came to a close with her family by her side on October 22, 2010. Mom was predeceased by her husband Geoffrey Mortimer and leaves behind her three children, Greg (Sandy), Joanne (Brent), Cathy (Jules) and 7 grandchildren . Patsy as dad like to call her, was born in Edmonton Alberta on Oct 12, 1924 but grew up in Red Deer. After completing her schooling she attended the Royal Alexandra School of Nursing and then went on to the U of A and got her degree in Public Health. She met our dad, Geoffrey Mortimer who was an RCMP officer stationed in Alberta and in 1950 they married. They soon started their family and their across Canada adventures. As dad rose in the ranks we moved to Ottawa, Regina, Penhold, Edmonton, Victoria and then back to Ottawa. After retirement they moved to Calgary and then Victoria. Mom had the hardest job in the world as a stay at home mom and managing our busy family. After dad died mom moved to Abbotsford in 1989. She loved the community and the ability to go for walks around Mill Lake with her Nordic poles. She had many interests and enjoyed needle point, curling, playing bridge, knitting, and learning about the latest tech gadgets. She was an avid sports fan and enjoyed following her grandchildren’s adventures and accomplishments. What mom is best known for is her incredible spirit; her sense of humour and her ability to light up a room with her smile. To Wendy Vaughan-Thomas, thank you for being there for the entire journey. There are no words that can thank you enough for your help, love and support. We are forever grateful. We would also like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Mike Newton and his staff, as well as the nurses at ARH Oncology ward, Dr. Gailbraith and the staff at the chemo therapy ward of the Cancer Clinic, staff at Abbotsford Continuing Care and at Valley Home Support and the doctors, nurses and volunteers at the Christine Morrison Hospice. A very special thank you is extended to the staff at Hallmark on the Park. You provided mom with comfort and love and you have become like family to us. We know mom that you are once again dancing with dad. You will be forever in our hearts. Until we meet again. Celebration of Life will take place Friday, October 29 at 6 pn at Cascade Community Church, Delair Rd. Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Abbotsford or Mission Hospice.

Drawing his own conclusions Popular Ottawa cartoonist plies his unique trade from Abby Cam Cardow won a national newspaper award for this cartoon last year. Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

It’s a conversation Cam Cardow has replayed many times in his life. “What do you do for a living?” “I’m an editorial cartoonist.” “Wow, that’s cool! I’ve never met one before!” “That’s because there are only about 20 of us in the country.” “And that’s a real job? They pay you enough to make a living? How much do you make?” “So far, so good.” Pretty darn good, actually. Cardow now plies his trade from his home in Abbotsford, but he is the cartoonist for the Ottawa Citizen, one of the bastions of political reporting in Canada. At the peak of his profession, when his Syndicam Productions company was sending his work across the country, he was a relative rock star in the world of Canadian news media. “I was getting published in every (daily) newspaper in the country. The business was good,” he said. “We paid off our house in two years, it was that good.” Competition bit big into those salad days, and now Cardow’s job is to send five cartoons a week to Ottawa, and they are picked up and published worldwide by another syndication company. Recently, his neighbour said he saw Cardow’s work while vacationing in Germany.

He got his start in 1983, with the Citizen. “I walked in with some dog-eared copies of work I’d done.” They put him to work on an art project – making riding maps at election time. “ In the beginning, as a newspaper artist, he would produce illustrations for feature pages, and produced one cartoon per week. He was soon on his way to the Regina Leader-Post as a full-time cartoonist. Cardow has bumped around the media, serving as art director for the Calgary Herald and web editor for Telus, But for the last 12 years he has made his living cartooning.

An associate who syndicates his work calls Cardow, “The Hallmark Card’s cartoonist.” “I’ve met a lot of cartoonists, and most of us guys are pretty cynical and pretty ruthless, but I’m not built that way,” he said. A recent cartoon of his poked fun at the Liberal leader’s limelight seeking ways, showing him emerging from the Chilean mine yelling

“It’s great to be alive!!” while rescuers remark “Ignatieff never misses an opportunity, does he.” Not flattering, but not overly mean. The next day, also about the rescued miners, was pure Hallmark – an image of television screen showing a miner hugging his family, while in the living room, a few feet away, family members hug one another. “I tried to put emotion into a cartoon, and it’s difficult to do.” he said.

In the first three years of his career in Regina, Cardow was nominated for a National Newspaper Award each year, winning once. It was an unmatched achievement. “When I wasn’t nominated the following year, I thought I was losing it.” But he would be nominated three more times. Last year he won again, for a 2008 cartoon with Stephane Dion walking the plank off a sunken Liberal ship. Apparently, he’s still got it.

Renew at home: renovate

Make a media room you’ll love

RJR Construction owner Shawn Stewart, left, project manager John Campbell and designer/ architect Osman Ozakcayli renewed this Vancouver home with a renovation that added square footage to the living space. Martin Knowles photo

TRICIA LESLIE

Renewing an old home is a major undertaking: from the design process to permit approval to completion, it is an involved process for homeowner and renovator. When that renovation can actually give the homeowner more space, the renewal becomes an upgrade. Such was the case at a West Side Vancouver single-family home – situated on a desirable corner lot in a fantastic neighbourhood – where the house itself was in need of a major overhaul of almost everything from the ground up. The homeowners called in RJR Construction management. “This house is on a small corner lot. If the client had decided to tear down and rebuild, they would only have been allowed to build a 1,600-squarefoot home,” notes RJR owner Shawn Stewart. “By renovating instead of building new, we were able to (make) it a 3,300-sq.-ft. home by creative use of guidelines while staying with the rules. It made perfect sense to renovate.” Stewart says they met these clients on a recent tour of homes where one of his company’s completed projects was on display. The homeowners were interviewing a number of contractors – which is what everyone should do, Stewart says – and they really liked what RJR had done on the house on tour. So RJR made a full presentation and discussed everything with the clients, from Àxed-price contracts to costplus to the approach on the project. “If the client doesn’t have an architect, which this client didn’t, they

The sectional couch, its cushions freshly plumped, awaits its guests for the evening. The coffee table is laid out with an impressive array of snacks; beverages and related mixes are lined up at the wet bar. The massive flatscreen TV – the focal point of the entire room – is mounted on the wall, ready to display the hockey game, the fight, the movie, or the PVR’d TV program from the night before. Home entertainment centres, or media rooms, have become extremely popular additions inside local Metro Vancouver homes, especially in a hightech world that offers the best in flatscreen TVs, video games, video-game players, BluRay systems, high-definition technology and more. These days, 3D TVs combine the latest and greatest that technology has to offer – and homeowners are paying attention. “Purchasing a 3D TV doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll only watch 3D programming,” says Keith Laird, director of televisions for The Brick. “(3D TVs) are the best 2D TVs you can buy ... they will, with-

A sales manager at a local Brick says sofas are as trendy as ever with clients, but especially in sectionals - for media rooms - whether in leather, microfibre or other materials. Sectional sofas with built-in reclining seats are often purchased for home entertainment theatres; some sectionals feature three or more reclining parts that can be joined together or pulled apart as separate seating. While projectors are still available - and soon, 3D projectors - the vast range of large, flatscreen TVs that are readily available attract many customers, he says. Other technologies, such as sophisticated home speaker and intercom systems, are advancing every day. Darryl Rosenfeldt, director of ConnectPro Services - the installers and experts available through Future Shop - says some 3D TVs are starting to come with WiFi access (wireless Internet capability). People can already download movies from the Internet and watch them on TV through their

It will also be an instant hit - if it’s not already - to gamers who love their xBox, PlayStation, Nintendo Wii and other video game players. ‘’The biggest part of 3D will be movies and gaming. 3D games will become very prominent when you see pieces of a car go flying by your head,’’ Laird says. But whether 3D TVs or the still ultrapopular flatscreen televisions (plasma, LCD/LED), Laird says the thinner, flat screens remain highly sought-after. And the TV remains king in the media room, he adds. ‘’How large (the TV is) usually depends on the size of the room ... the TV is always the focus,’’ he says.

No matter what each homeowner chooses when renovating the home to include a media room, one thing is certain: if it’s comfy, and if the TV is impressive enough, there will always be company for the hocky game, the movie or the UFC fight.

need to contract with a company that has a design, architectural and build capability, which we do,” says Stewart. “Because of our complete service we were able to satisfy their needs from design to build with a Àxed price. We told the client this renovation was going to be in the range of $600,000 to achieve what they wanted.” Before a Àxed price is agreed on, RJR does a thorough examination of the home, assesses what can be seen, then evaluates what changes need to take place and the cost of those changes, and then go from there. RJR has the architectural/design department involved in the initial process and works closely with the estimating department, so they are well versed in the costing. This allows them to assure their clients – if the scope of the project isn’t changed by the clients – what the price will be. Sometimes, there are unpredictable costs, Stewart says, but RJR does its best to mitigate any extra spending. “In this case, there was an old oil tank we discovered when we came across a copper line buried in the soil,” Stewart says. “We were able to get that removed safely and this was an

extra cost to the client.” The Vancouver house required a lot of structural upgrades in order to make the home sound, so it was structurally re-engineered and approved to earthquake standards. In order to meet the requirements of the city, RJR had to reinforce with sheer walls and structural beams, which were masked by Ànished materials. On the exterior, the porch was rebuilt and enhanced, raised fascia details were applied to gables, pre-painted Hardie board siding was added, and modern materials were used to complement the period appearance of the house with stone, natural wood trim and cladding. Inside a sprinkler system was installed throughout the home, along with radiant inÁoor heating, true divided Àberglass windows and a high-efÀciency boiler. The creative use of space includes two separate units for a total of three baths, two kitchens, and nine bedrooms. The Ànishes in both units are superb, with extensive use of natural wood and re-milled existing doors; both units Àt naturally into the style of the home. Both suites have open-plan living, with the living room, full-size dining room and kitchen

The atmosphere is casual yet elegant with the striking millwork – from the Àreplace to the crown mouldings, from the baseboards to the bookcases – adding a sophisticated touch. As with any job, there were a few bumps in the road – a huge glacier boulder was found when the house was lifted, for example, and the property line was found to be two feet off, plus the fact that RJR had to work in an incredibly tiny space when the neighbour asked that a fence be installed between the two homes prior to the start of the renovation. This is when a client will likely, be thankful they have hired an experienced contractor. Brought back from the brink with a sensitive and stunning renovation, this Vancouver home is now a delight to the homeowners and to the neighbourhood, where it now Àts in like it has always belonged.

Would you like that Fried, Baked or Barbecued? Personally, I prefer my electronics uncooked, and I’ll bet you do too. This past season’s thunderstorms, undoubtedly, had many homeowners scrambling to unplug their computers and other expensive electronic equipment, with the intention of protecting them from a potentially damaging power surge caused by a lightning strike. A lightning strike up to two kilometres away can fry your home’s sensitive electronic equipment. But what about the fixtures and appliances you are unable to disconnect, such as the range, refrigerator, laundry machines, furnace or air conditioner? It costs approximately $8,000 to $10,000 to replace the electronic equipment in the average BC home. This amount can more than double if you have invested in a sophisticated entertainment system, newer appliances, or if you work from a home office. Although lightning strikes are relatively uncommon in the Fraser Valley, power surges are not unusual and every home is susceptible to the searing damage caused by a surge.

So where do power surges come from? An electrical storm is certainly a very powerful and destructive source, but surges also originate directly from your electrical utility supply company, to which some Mission residents can attest. On January 5, 2009 a sudden and very destructive power surge, originating from the power grid, left hundreds of Mission homes without power and major damages to electronic components and appliances. Homeowners were left to battle with insurance companies to replace damaged or destroyed possessions.

A power surge, sometimes called a voltage surge or a transient voltage fluctuation, is a very brief spike in voltage, usually lasting only millionths of a second and varying from a few hundred volts to several thousand volts. Power surges can also vary in duration and magnitude. If the spike exceeds an appliance’s normal operating voltage requirement, an electrical arc is created inside the appliance which generates heat. This heat will seriously bake the circuit boards and other electrical components in the appliance and can potentially cause a fire.

Aside from the obvious benefits of whole home surge protection, there may be an added bonus. Some experts claim that homeowners can expect to get up to 30% more life out of their Many people have a false sense of security thinking that their appliances, electronic equipment and even light bulbs, when point-of-use surge strips or power bars will provide all the protection this important safety device is installed. To protect your home needed. In reality, the common surge suppressor power bar should investment, the installation of a full panel surge protector on your only be used as a secondary line of defence as many have a very main electrical service panel is a must. Let’s reserve the cooking for limited or one-time use only. A surge strip or power bar that has something edible. been compromised is nothing more than an extension cord and

Small power surges are also created within your own home when larger appliances turn on and off. This is sometimes evident by lights that go dim, but then brighten up again when the appliance is turned off (although aluminium wiring or a grow op in the neighbourhood might cause the same symptoms, but those are topics for another day).The average home is hit with over 20 internal energy spikes in a single day. These internal surges are distributed throughout your home and can significantly shorten the life of your electronics and appliances.

you will find your electronics barbecued by the next surge that comes along. The best line of defence against all types of power surges is a good quality main panel surge suppressor installed directly on your main electrical panel by a knowledgeable and certified electrician. Telephone and cable line protection should also be included as surges can also enter your home by this method. A good quality panel surge protector will repeatedly absorb any incoming spike and reduce it to an acceptable level, thereby protecting the valuable electronics in your home or office. There are many brands of surge protection on the market and some are definitely of better quality than others. Our knowledgeable electricians will be able to offer valuable advice, as a properly sized surge protector for the whole house can save you thousands of dollars from just one single incident.

For all of your home’s electrical service, repairs or installations, call the company you can trust.
