Target of ‘hit man’ scam Email scheme and ill-considered prank upset recipients Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford man received an email in which the sender indicated he had been hired to kill the person for $12,000, but he didn’t want to go through with it. Instead, the hit man suggested the victim pay the cash and, in exchange, his life would be spared. Even better, the individual would help the victim work with the authorities to help capture the person who had contracted the hit. The 24-year-old recipient of the email reported the message to the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) on March 23. It was then that he discovered he had been the victim of “the hit man scam,” a scheme that has circu-

lated around the world, starting in 2006. APD Const. Ian MacDonald said police discovered the email received locally had originated from the United States. They had to convince the recipient that it was a scam by showing him online reports warning consumers about it. “The person who received the email has had a bit of an eventful life and has had some trouble in the past, so he took it a bit more seriously than he would have under other circumstances,” MacDonald said. The FBI in the U.S. has warned that the perpetrators of the scam hope to not only solicit cash, but to obtain personal data so they can steal identities. Recipients of the message are encouraged

to avoid sending a reply. A second similar incident was reported to the APD last week, but involved an early April Fool’s Day prank. MacDonald said a 21-year-old Saskatchewan man called the APD at about 10 p.m. on March 31 to report that he had received a troubling text message from a phone number in Abbotsford. The message said, “Okay, I’ve hid the body. What now?” Police used the phone number to track down the 19-year-old man who had sent it. No further action was taken. “In that instance, we were satisfied that it was an ill-intentioned practical joke,” MacDonald said.

said his objections had nothing to do with his personal morals. He said he found himself conflicted.

Traffic lines up to cross into the United States at the Huntingdon border crossing. Local retailers and business associations are concerned that increases to duty-free shopping limits will mean a further exodus of Canadian dollars to American stores.

Budget’s border boost a bane to Abby business Major increases to duty-free limits for cross-border shoppers Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Some local business owners and associations are not pleased with last week’s federal budget announcement which increased the amount of goods Canadians can purchase in the U.S. The duty-free limit for a 24-hour stay has increased from $50 to $200, while a 48-hour stay has gone from $400 to $800. The new rates will begin June 1, 2012. “It’s perplexing that the federal government is making it easier for Canadian earned dollars to leak out of the Canadian economy,” said Gerri Charles, owner of Champagne & Lace in downtown Abbotsford. “It seems the feds are working at cross purposes to Canadian business.” She has talked with some Canadians who have declared their purchases at the border for same-day trips and customs personnel have waved them through without charging GST or duty. “It just doesn’t seem equitable. Can you imagine how quickly the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) would notice if Canadian businesses didn’t collect GST?” Charles said the change doesn’t seem to consider the big picture “It’s about the jobs generated by business in general, the support to charities and

As for the decision to eliminate the penny, Asaph fully supports it. “Should have done it long ago. It’s a simple business decision. When it costs you 1.6 cents to make it, get rid of it.” Paul MacLeod, president of the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association, said cross-border shopping has alway been a concern for local businesses and the new exemptions just make an ongoing problem worse. “Of course it’s affected us.” He understands the draw to the U.S., but feels consumers have to look at the bigger picture. “All we are doing is hurting our own country,” said MacLeod. He believes consumers may save some money in the short term, but “as soon as a dollar leaves Canada, it’s gone forever.” He said it’s important to support the Canadian economy, especially now. While no official response has been prepared by the ADBA, MacLeod said the board is meeting in two weeks and cross-border shopping will be one of the main issues discussed.

The City of Abbotsford has cut its fleet of vehicles from 47 in 2009 to 34.

City fleets reduced

WE’RE YOUR NEWEST HONDA DEALER

Estimated total savings of nearly $2 million Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

There are 34 vehicles in the city hall fleet, ranging from a 2003 Toyota Prius ($40,382 purchase value) to four 2006 Chevrolet Aveos ($17,000 each). That’s down 13 vehicles from 2009 when the fleet consisted of a mixture of 47 cars, pickups, SUVs and vans. The declining number of vehicles is part of an ongoing review being performed by Karen Sinclair, the city’s director of strategic planning and business improvement. The city hall fleet currently has an acquisition value (the cost to purchase the vehicle when new) of $854,702, for an average cost of $25,138 per unit. The operating costs for 2011 were $136,600. The city hall fleet is used by a variety of staff, based on department. It is comprised of five vehicles for bylaw enforcement officers, six for engineering work inspectors, 12 for building inspectors, three for survey, two for engineering (traffic), one for the mayor and five in the general pool (for use by any staff employee who needs a vehicle to perform their job). Vehicles are to be used for city business only. Sinclair said employees can take a vehicle home only if they are working late at night and are going straight

home from a work site, or early in the morning and reporting directly to the job site. The city hall fleet is just a small portion of the overall number of vehicles owned and operated by the city. The four other main fleets include public works, Abbotsford police, fire rescue service and the airport. In 2011, the total repairs and maintenance cost for all vehicles was approximately $2.5 million, with an operating cost of $1.9 million; and management, planning and overhead costs of $770,000. In the past two years, the public works yard has been reduced by 36 pieces of equipment.

About $71,000 was raised by auctioning the old equipment and another $94,400 was saved in operating costs. Five vehicles were removed from the airport fleet (auctioned for $31,400 and saving $22,700 in operating costs). Other reductions included police (six vehicles) supply services (one), plus non-fleet related cutbacks and cost-saving suggestions provided by city staff. Sinclair reported in 2011 the city made a total of $282,300 from selling equipment, saw $295,200 in operating savings, and $1,592,000 in capital saving by not replacing the eliminated vehicles.

Sensible slot decision The decision to allow more slot machines in Abbotsford will no doubt displease some people, but it ultimately makes sense. By a 5-4 vote Monday night, council gave approval to Chances Community Gaming Centre, which currently has 125 machines, to increase that number to a maximum of 275 machines. Voting against the expansion were Couns. Simon Gibson, Henry Braun, Les Barkman and Dave Loewen. Loewen pointed out that he has been opposed to slots from the start, on social and economic grounds, not morals. While the negative aspects of gambling is a legitimate concern, with supporting research and tangible examples, less certain is the impact of a simple increase in the number of slot machines in an existing environment. The fact of the matter is that Abbotsford has a segment of population that engages in slot machine gambling. It’s also a fact that Chances attracts nonresident gamblers. The presence of gambling in this com-

munity, and the region, is a Pandora’s Box that was opened years ago. Gambling establishments surround Abbotsford, and if this city didn’t have its own, devotees of this form of entertainment would go elsewhere. Expansion of the number of slot machines does not automatically translate into local gamblers spending more. It also means an increased opportunity to draw attendance from outside the city’s boundaries. Ultimately, gambling is a revenue stream for cities and charities, which receive a significant portion of the considerable proceeds. That may represent dirty money to some. The government tax on liquor could be viewed in a similar vein. However, this society is built on choices – albeit ome better than others. In this case, the choice was clear. Slot machines are already here. They are popular, generally accepted in the mainstream, and bring a measure of public benefit. Moving on ...

Budget does little to change Canada Adrian

MacNair

My View In like a lion, out like a lamb. That’s how I would describe the 2012 federal budget announced March 29 to the great anticipation of many, because this is the first time a majority government has delivered a budget since 2003. The result was a relatively typical and tame middle-of-the-road budget, and certainly not the sort of fire and brimstone that had been predicted for the past decade should Stephen Harper and several of his former Reform-Alliance MPs ever secure absolute power in the Lower Chamber. If anything, a number of the proposals on the budget read like a progressive, rather Liberal agenda, including forming an advisory council to get more women on corporate boards, deep cuts to the military, and changes that make it easier for the unemployed and

those with disabilities to find work. There’s nothing in the budget that calls for massive cuts to the unionized public sector except for modest downsizing of a bureaucracy that they themselves created since taking power in 2006. It’s true that roughly 19,200 jobs will be lost over the next few years, representing 4.8 per cent of all federal public service jobs, but this is lacking the context that the Conservative government has overseen the most dramatic rise in civil service hiring in Canadian history. According to Statistics Canada, the number of federal government employees (including military) rose from about 387,000 in 2007 to 427,000 in 2011, a 10.34 per cent increase over five years. Nor does a $5.2-billion spending cut over three years really amount to much when the figures are as large as the federal expenditures listed in the budget. The estimated $276 billion in spending is $54 billion larger than the first budget presented by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty in 2006, nearly a 25 per

cent increase over just six years. Adjusted for inflation, cutting $5.2 billion over three years is about $12 billion less than the amount it will grow anyway. So, the size of the budget isn’t being reduced, it’s simply growing slower.

If anything, a number of the proposals on the budget read like a progressive, rather Liberal agenda... Certainly, there were some announcements of cuts in the budget that might bother a few people. The CBC will now have to find some way to carry on with a 10 per cent reduction to its budget over the next three years, cutting $27.8 million next year, $41.8 million in 2013-14 and $45.4 million in 2014-15.

But there are those who might argue that a publicly funded company that already receives a subsidy of more than $1 billion should be able to find a way to absorb these cuts, particularly when free market media carry on without those subsidies. There’s also the changes to Old Age Pension which will affect those who are not yet 65 years of age by 2023, and extend their working life by two years. That’s certainly frustrating for those of us who fall in that category, and even confusing given comments made by parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page in February, indicating current OAP funds are sustainable. Given that the federal government doesn’t seem to ever listen or believe the comments made by Page, perhaps it’s time to save another $1.8 million and get rid of the office the Conservatives created in 2008 to fulfill its promise in the Accountability Act. But make no mistake. This budget changes little about Canada’s bigspending, big-debt government. Adrian MacNair is a reporter with The Mission Record, a sister paper to The Abbotsford News.

PORK ON THE GRILL

Another side of Ledgeview issue

         

This letter is in regards to P. Doddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ledgeview deserves help from City of Abbotsford, April 1,â&#x20AC;? regarding the financial assistance required by the Ledgeview golf course. His letter shows how important the considerations of both sides of an argument can be. Mr. Dodd states Ledgeview is the only fulllength course in Abbotsford, and this is the main reason why it should be helped, but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say a word about the three other golf courses that all provide the same service that Ledgeview does, albeit with some fewer holes. Mr. Dodd then goes on to say that the municipalities surrounding Abbotsford all have more than one course, and that Ledgeview is the crown jewel of Abbotsford. But, as stated earlier, there are four courses available for use in Abbotsford. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider Ledgeview the centerpiece of Abbotsford, and would likely put the AESC or UFV as the city jewel. Tournaments and events at Ledgeview do promote the city, but they are so scarcely occurring that any revenue made is easily cancelled out by the amount of money that would be spent to keep Ledgeview up and running. I am confused as to how local businesses can significantly profit from out-of-town golfers. A few rounds of golf will only take a few hours, and golfers will most likely finish their game and go home, maybe grabbing a bite to eat from McDonalds. Personally, I agree with you that Ledgeview receive financial aid, but it should be in the interest of the taxpayers, and should be voted on by the taxpayers after they know what they are paying for.

I applaud Mayor Bruce Banman for casting the deciding vote in favour of expansion of the number of slot machines at Chances Abbotsford. With his vote he has sent a clear message. Council is not the moral police, council must do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for the city on a financial level and leave moral objections to Sunday morning pulpits. The people of this city have spoken and their voice was heard. Terry Short

Heat games about community

Healthy Idea: Prepare sandwiches with whole grain breads to aid in better weight maintenance and reduce the risk of diabetes and asthma. Arrange a whole wheat tortilla with leftover turkey or chicken. Add strips of red and green peppers. Top with salsa.

I have read too many negative remarks about the Abbotsford Heat. I wonder if the people complaining have ever gone to a game and felt the community spirit there. I am not a real hockey fan, but I really love the atmosphere at the Heat games. I recently attended the game with my dogs. It was fabulous. The great thing was that $5 from each dog ticket was donated to the SPCA. As I walked through the lobby the SPCA was there with information about their programs, and there were other freebies for pet owners. The national anthem is an awesome event in itself. Local talent sing, and they are exceptional.

When they finish, the crowds roar. Clayburn Middle School students are producing broadcasts, young hockey players are out on the ice playing a game, parents selling 50/50 tickets, and kids even get a chance to ride on the Zamboni. I love seeing all the red in the audience! People catching T-shirts, bags of chips, winning jerseys, playing the Tim Horton game. Great music, Hawkey, friendly people, yummy popcorn, The Kiss Cam, it is all so much fun. It isn’t just about the hockey. Families are there. Lots of happy children dancing and cheering in the stands. I challenge you to come out and see for yourself. Shelley Patterson

ADVERTORIAL

BY DR. ANDREA PECHEY So it’s that time of year again when the wild critters that share our yards and green spaces have babies in tow. It’s also a busy time of year for wildlife rescue centers! They become overwhelmed with calls from concerned citizens about orphaned and injured young animals. Here are some helpful tips to determine whether they need our help: Baby Mammals. Many species of mammals leave their young for several hours (up to 8 hours with fawns)! So what should you do if you find a seemingly “orphaned” baby mammal? • Determine if the animal looks sick or injured. If it is then contact a local wildlife rescue. • If it seems fine then see if you can find a nearby nest or den and try to determine if it is still intact. Gently return the baby to its home. • If you cannot find a home then leave the baby where you found it. This is especially important for baby squirrels which are often found at the base of trees. The mom will come down to get her baby when she notices he/she is missing.

• Observe the animal patiently for 4-6 hours to see if mom returns. For raccoons, young should be left overnight to wait for mom’s return. Baby Birds. Most of the time these little guys don’t require rescuing! If you find a baby bird hopping around in the grass and it has feathers, it’s a fledgling. This means the little feathered friend is learning how to fly and you could be robbing mom and dad of a very proud moment by whisking this little fellow away. Exceptions are unfeathered young birds found outside the nest (try to see if you can place them into their nest) and obviously injured young. Another exception is ducklings or goslings. If these little guys are found wandering alone they may be in need of a helping hand. The most important thing to remember is that we are no match for mom and she WILL NOT reject her baby if it has been handled. Please visit www.elizabethswildlifecenter.org OR www.crittercarewildlife.org for more information.

Daffodil pins show support Every three minutes, another Canadian will hear the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;you have cancerâ&#x20AC;? for the first time, and the Canadian Cancer Society wants them to know that they are not alone. During Daffodil Month in April, and especially on Daffodil Day (April 27), the Canadian Cancer Society is asking Canadians to join the fight against cancer by making a donation to support its work throughout Canada and to proudly wear a daffodil pin as a symbol of support for people living with cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to create a movement across Canada and see thousands of Canadians wearing the daffodil pin,â&#x20AC;? said Peter Goodhand, CEO and president, Canadian Cancer Society.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;United by the daffodil, we will show people living with cancer that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to face cancer alone, and we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up until all forms of the disease are defeated.â&#x20AC;? Throughout Daffodil Month, special events and activities will be taking place in communities across Canada to raise vital funds to prevent cancer, fund research, inform and support people living with cancer, and advocate for policies to improve the health of Canadians. Daffodil Day on April 27 wraps up the campaign by designating a special day where Canadians can take a moment to reflect upon the thousands of people who are on a cancer journey and also to remember those who have died.

Supporting Canadians

together we can make cancer history

in the search for a cure for cancer.

Daffodil pins show support Every three minutes, another Canadian will hear the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;you have cancerâ&#x20AC;? for the first time, and the Canadian Cancer Society wants them to know that they are not alone. During Daffodil Month in April, and especially on Daffodil Day (April 27), the Canadian Cancer Society is asking Canadians to join the fight against cancer by making a donation to support its work throughout Canada and to proudly wear a daffodil pin as a symbol of support for people living with cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to create a movement across Canada and see thousands of Canadians wearing the daffodil pin,â&#x20AC;? said Peter Goodhand, CEO and president, Canadian Cancer Society.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;United by the daffodil, we will show people living with cancer that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to face cancer alone, and we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up until all forms of the disease are defeated.â&#x20AC;? Throughout Daffodil Month, special events and activities will be taking place in communities across Canada to raise vital funds to prevent cancer, fund research, inform and support people living with cancer, and advocate for policies to improve the health of Canadians. Daffodil Day on April 27 wraps up the campaign by designating a special day where Canadians can take a moment to reflect upon the thousands of people who are on a cancer journey and also to remember those who have died.

Supporting Canadians

together we can make cancer history

in the search for a cure for cancer.

Sports Hall of Fame makes Kirton call Abbotsford News

JOHN MORROW

Abbotsford News

Linda and Daryl Kirton will be inducted into the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame on April 28, honouring more than three decades of contributions on the curling scene.

Daryl and Linda Kirton have been working quietly in the background as high-level curling officials for more than three decades, so being thrust into the limelight recently by the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame came as something of a shock. The husband-wife duo are the only nominees to make the cut for entrance into the local sports shrine this year – they’ll be officially inducted in

Abbotsford's Sophie Schmidt has been named the female player of the month by the Canadian Soccer Association. The 23-year-old midfielder scored one goal and added two assists in five international matches for Canada during the month of March. The eighth-year member of the national team also extended her streak of consecutive appearances to 35, which ranks sixthbest in team history. Schmidt has represented Canada at the 2008 Summer Olympics, two FIFA Women's World Cups, three CONCACAF championships (one gold and two silver), and one Pan American Games (gold).

passion for curling has been a constant in their relationship. They met in the late 1960s, after Daryl moved to Abbotsford from Armstrong, B.C.

Desch dominates at Yakima track meet

Win Tickets!

Chantel Desch of the Valley Royals track and field club brought home a trio of gold medals from the Holder Relays in Yakima, Wash. last weekend. The Yale Secondary senior had victories in the 100 metres and 400m, and combined with Hailey Gibson, Katherine Crivello and Natasha

Friedman to win the 4x100m relay. Desch's time of 12.63 in the 100m was a personal best. Gibson was second in the 100m, just one hundredth of a second behind Desch, while Alex Siemens took bronze in the mile run and Francesca Jackman was third in the 300m hurdles.

Later in the meet, Siemens and Jackman joined forces with Janelle Hay and Kayla Lennea to win the distance medley relay. Q The Royals’ Mike Mason braved pouring rain and wind on Saturday to place first in the high jump at the Western Washington University meet in Bellingham.

Mason managed a Canadianleading jump of 2.20m to easily win the event and had some good attempts at 2.24 meters. The Nanoose Bay native is now living in Abbotsford and training under the watchful eye of Ziggy Szelagowicz. He’s contending for a spot on the Canadian team for the London Summer Olympics.

Meet Hercules: resident ‘floor greeter’ at Abbotsford Volkswagen. DL#31164

Linda’s father, Ray Boury, was one of the founders of the local curling club, and he would drag Daryl down to the club after dinner, as a means of getting to know the boy who was dating his daughter. Daryl and Linda would go on to become top-notch curlers in their own right – they’ve competed together at the provincial mixed championships on multiple occasions, and Daryl was part of an Abbotsford men’s rink that lost to Rick Folk in the final of the 1989 B.C. championship. But it’s as officials where they’ve really made their mark. In the late 1970s, the Abbotsford Curling Club began hosting a men’s cashspiel, and the $10,000 first prize drew rinks from across Canada. Wanting to standardize some rules for the event, Daryl attended the first officiating course ever held in B.C. That started the couple on a journey that has seen them preside over a wide variety of national and international championships – men’s, women’s, mixed, junior, wheelchair – while adding passport stamps from Switzerland, Finland, South Korea and Japan. Name a big-time curling spiel, and there’s a strong chance the Kirtons have officiated it. They’re in agreement that the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver have been the highlight. Daryl served as supervisor of play for both events, while Linda was the statistician at the Olympics and the deputy chief umpire at the Paralympics. She also got to read the official’s oath at the Paralympic opening ceremonies in front of 60,000-plus fans at B.C. Place, a moment she describes as “very emotional.” Daryl said he’s particularly enjoyed watching the growth

of wheelchair curling in recent years – the sport has come a long way since the first time he worked at the Wheelchair World Championships in Richmond in 2005. “There were no rules or anything – they had

March 21, 1925 ~ March 28, 2012

Another pioneer has passed away quietly with Audrey Campbell, his son Newton, daughter Linda and granddaughter Laura by his side. He is survived by his 3 children; Newton, Linda (Mike), Allan (Anne), his son-in-law Wesley Janzen, 5 granddaughters; Carrie (Darren), Angela (Bill), Amanda (Adam), Laura (Mike) and Alanna and 3 great grandchildren: Jordan, Justen and Avalyn. Melvin was born and raised on Sumas Prairie where he married Colleen Menagh and together had five children. In the early 1950’s Melvin researched and pioneered the way for the first refrigerated milk trucks into Canada; thus allowing the farm dairy milk to be refrigerated when transported to the Plant. He farmed the Stewart Farm until the early sixties (now known as Birchwood Dairies). He then moved to Vancouver, joined the Operating Engineers Union and spent many years operating Heavy Equipment and then as a Consultant. He retired and returned to Abbotsford to pursue his joy of travelling. Melvin will be greatly missed but not forgotten. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the caring, compassionate, thoughtful nurses of the Emergency Decision Making Unit of the Abbotsford Hospital. No service by request.

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beloved wife, mother, sister, grandma and great grandma. After a brief illness, Carol went to be with her Lord on March 31, 2012 at the age of 86. She is survived by her husband of over 60 years, Fred Clayton and her children; David (Michelle), Dianne (Bert), Brian (Laura), John (Michelle), her stepsons; Daryl (Mary), Bob (Maxine) and many grandchildren & great grandchildren. Carol was born in Provost, Alberta to Cornelius and Susanna Wiebe. She grew up in Northern Alberta, along with her 5 sisters and 3 brothers. Later the family moved to Yarrow, B.C. She met the love of her life while working in Vancouver at the Independent Biscuit Company. After marrying they moved to Abbotsford where they raised their 4 children and retired. Mom’s lasting legacy is her faith in her Lord and how she lived her life. Her love of family and her servant heart was evident to everyone who knew her. She will be greatly missed by all her family & friends. Memorial service will be held 11:00 am, Saturday, April 7th at Sevenoaks Alliance Church, 2575 Gladwin Road, Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Samaritan’s Purse, www.samaritanspurse.ca Online condolences to the family may made at www.woodlawnfh-abbotsford.com
