Panhandlers curbed, intersections off limits City bylaw on begging restricts where, when and how

SNOW WHITE A4 In its 30th season, Abbotsford Children’s Theatre stages performances next week

Vikki HOPES and Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Signs installed at three high-traffic locations around Abbotsford are reminding panhandlers they are not welcome. The “No Panhandling” signs have been erected by the city, following a request by the Abbotsford Police Department, at three traffic medians along Sumas Way – at South Fraser Way, Barrons Way and McConnell Road. Const. Ian MacDonald said a particularly aggressive panhandler was the impetus for the move. Police and the city received numerous complaints last year when the man stationed himself on the traffic island at Sumas Way and McConnell Road (near Costco). He held a sign requesting money, and charitable citizens often obliged. MacDonald said the problem was that he became a hazard, often causing drivers d to brake suddenly as they pulled up beside him or held up traffic behind them. There were also concerns that Continued on A5

Children’s Theatre stages Snow White Group celebrates 30 seasons Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Children’s Theatre is celebrating its 30th season of shows by presenting Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on April 13 at 7 p.m. and April 14 at 1 p.m. at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium (MCA), 32315 South Fraser Way. “This famous fairy tale has been a challenge to produce but has such interesting characters and story line,” said artistic director, Freddy Latham. ACT has 40 young actors, ranging in age from 10 to 16, who are involved in this production. “When we first started (30 years ago), there were only 12 kids,” said Latham. Productions were held at the now non-existent McCallum Activity Centre and then the Abbotsford Arts Centre, which Latham said was too big a venue for the kids. “When the MCA was built, we finally found a home.” Three decades later, children not only act, but work backstage, run the lights and help with costumes. Latham said they are not presenting the Disney version of the famous fairy tale, opting for a more traditional one. Snow White tickets are available for $12 at Tourism Abbotsford, Clearbrook Optical, Abbotsford City Hall and online at abbotsfordchildrenstheatre.org. In commemoration of 30 years of plays, ACT will have special mugs on sale for $10 at both this show and the upcoming Christmas play. Anyone who has been a part of ACT may want to obtain a mug which lists all the shows over the past three decades.

Abbotsford Children’s Theatre is performing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on April 13 (7 p.m.) and April 14 (1 p.m.) at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium. Pictured are performers (left to right) Mhairi McKay (as the Queen), Ian Bradley (Bambos), Nada Moorthy (Snow White), and Josh Bilson (the Huntsman).

A Chilliwack man who was the alleged pilot of a helicopter that crashed in Abbotsford in 2005 and who has links to the Bacon brothers has been sentenced in a cross-border smuggling scheme. Dustin Melvin Haugen, 29, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to import 100 kilograms or more of marijuana, and was sentenced last week in a Spokane, Washington courtroom to time served. This time included three months spent in North Fraser Pretrial Centre after his arrest in 2006 and 11 months in the U.S. after he was extradited there in April 2011. Haugen was one of more than 40 people arrested in 2006 in a two-year-old police operation targeting drug smuggling. He and Daryl Desjardins, 45, of Agassiz

According to court documents, on the day of their

arrest, police videotaped a Bell 206 Jet Ranger helicopter leaving from a hangar near Harrison Hot Springs and landing in an isolated area in B.C. Desjardins was the pilot, and Haugen was the co-pilot. The chopper met with occupants of a pickup truck, and Haugen was seen unloading

The chopper then took off and landed in a state wildlife area in Okanagan County in north central Washington, where the hockey bags were unloaded and placed in another truck. The helicopter returned to its original location in Harrison Hot Springs, and the pair were arrested. The hockey bags that had been loaded onto the truck, and seized by police, were found to contain 135.2 kilograms of marijuana.

Drunk trio cart themselves into car wash NewsBytes Shenanigans draw noise complaint, and the cops

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Three drunken 20-year-oldmen who went near-naked through a car wash in a shopping cart on Tuesday night in Abbotsford has garnered plenty of welcome attention for the company, but the chief executive officer of the firm advises others not to try the same thing. Saran Chandra of Washworld – located in Abbotsford at 2731 Ware St. – said the men could have been seriously injured when they went through the automated touchless car wash.

He said the system offers “This is just something really the “monsoon” and “typhoon” strange.” wash options, and exerts 1,000 Const.

Video from the concerned about copycat inci- scene, which Chandra said dents. will not be released to the

Police arrived just as the men were putting their clothes back on, and offered some friendly advice – that perhaps the culprits could find a better use of their time. MacDonald said the trio apologized for the noise and inconvenience, and were sent on their way. He said there was at least there one upside to the situation: “They were definitely clean.”

Police: Public safety a priority From A1

the man would be hit by a car if he slipped onto the road while walking along the median. Similar concer ns were expressed about panhandlers at other intersections. MacDonald said police felt a simple solution – at least to start – would be to remind people that, under City of Abbotsford bylaws, panhandlers are not permitted to approach drivers in parked cars or at traffic lights. At first, the panhandler at McConnell Road held up his own sign to block the “No Panhandling” reminder, but MACDONALD he has since moved along. So have panhandlers at the other intersections sporting the signs. MacDonald said panhandlers tend to move from city to city, and Abbotsford, as a growing city and a transportation hub, can expect to see them. However, public safety is the priority, he said. Gordon Ferguson, manager of bylaw enforcement for the city, said panhandling is covered in the consolidated good neighbour bylaw. He said the bylaw is designed to regulate, but not forbid the activity. “Panhandling is not illegal ... You can’t prohibit it from happening,” he said, adding

Signs like this one have been placed at a number of busy intersections in the city, which have become popular among panhandlers. that could lead to a legal charter challenge. Restrictions include: Q Panhandling within 10 metres of the entrance to a financial institution, an automated teller machine, a

bus stop, a bus shelter or the entrance to a liquor store; Q Panhandling from the occupant of a parked car, one stopped at a traffic light or one stopped for loading or unloading;

QPanhandling after sunset; Q Lying or sitting on a street for the purpose of panhandling; and Q Continuing to panhandle from a person who has given a negative response and/or following them. All infractions carry a $75 fine. David Eby, executive director of the BC Civil Liberties Association, said Abbotsford is not alone with this issue. Many communities are struggling with what to do about panhandling and visible homeless. H o w e v e r, he doesn’t believe more enforcement of bylaws is necessarily the right answer. EBY While safety concerns have to be addressed, he said, “Any type of enforcement action needs to be matched with aggressive advocacy by communities like Abbotsford, to say, ‘Why is it that we have so many people who are begging for change on our street?’ ” Of all the safety issues faced by homeless, including assault, cold weather and other unsafe scenarios, Eby said being hit by a car while asking for change is low on the list. He empathizes with the city because he knows there are few resources, but suggests there have to be options other than threatening them with fines or jail.

STOLEN VEHICLE A 40-year-old man from Abbotsford and a 48-year-old man from Surrey were arrested in Hope on Saturday for possession of a stolen vehicle and impaired driving. The RCMP were called to the 600 block of Thacker Avenue after a resident reported seeing a suspicious vehicle in the area. Police found the black 2000 GMC Envoy, which was stolen from Surrey last November, still running in a driveway. Both men are known to police and were released from custody with a promise to appear in court at a future date.

MOM AND BOY INJURED A mother and her child were taken to hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries following a crash at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the corner of George Ferguson Way and Garden Street. Const. Ian MacDonald said although the three-year-old boy was buckled into his car seat at the time of the crash, the seat had not been secured in the vehicle and hit the floor on impact. The boy is believed to have suffered a broken leg. The pair were travelling east in a Honda Accord along George Ferguson Way when they collided with a Ford F150 pickup making a left turn to head west from the parking lot adjacent to a produce store. The mother was treated for facial cuts and bruises. The driver of the truck was not injured.

SPRINKLING RESTRICTIONS Sprinkling restrictions will return to Abbotsford this summer. Twice-weekly morning sprinkling during the summer months (May to September) has been approved by city council to ensure Abbotsford residents conserve water. Beginning May 1, even numbered addresses may water their lawns on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6-8 a.m. Odd numbered residences can water on Thursdays and Sundays, also from 6-8 a.m.

Citizens organize pipeline meeting A public information meeting organized by concerned citizens will be held next Wednesday, April 11 in Abbotsford to discuss the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of University of the Fraser Valley’s Abbotsford campus, 33844 King Rd. Speakers include Jo h n Vi s s e r s, board member with Zero Waste BC and Abbotsford community activist; Eddie Gardner, member of the Skwah First Nation; Rueben George, Sundance chief and member of the Tsleil Waututh N at i o n ; Mary Forstbauer, president of the Organic Growers’ Association of BC; and Ben West of the Wilderness Committee. Kinder Morgan is proposing to double the capacity of its Trans Mountain Pipeline, running from Edmonton to Va n c o u ve r and including Abbotsford. Although the line has an existing right-of-way, environmental reviews and regulatory approval, consent of First Nations is required before anything can move through. Meeting organizers say they are concerned about tar sands being transported along the line

and the increased risk of spills. In January of this year, a 110,000-litre spill was reported at the tank farm on Sumas Mountain in Abbotsford. The spill,

which is still under investigation by authorities, was contained to the Kinder Morgan property. In 2005, a rupture was detected in the pipeline on the north

side of Ward Road in Abbotsford. A total of 210,000 litres of crude oil was released into the surrounding area, and made its way into Kilgard Creek.

QUESTION

Assault by girls

OF THE WEEK

Should panhandling be banned entirely in the city?

I think it’s sad the parents of these teens allow them out at 3 a.m. in the morning. Where are the parents? It sickens me to think that parents are taking a responsibility for these teen girls, and I agree the older guys shouldn’t have been there, but nobody should be beating on someone. It scares me to think this is the world we are leaving to our children. Jodi Shaw

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

It is a false assumption to think that the parents are allowing this. As a teen, I lied to my parents on more than one occassion about where and who I would be hanging out with. By the ages of 15/16 the teens need to be held accountable moreso than the parents, considering they are legally allowed to operate a car (which is equivilant to a 1000 lb. weapon in the wrong hands) and are over the age of consent. I would also think it is more innappropriate for them to be out at this hour of the morning than a 30-year-old. Regardless, as parents all we can do is to try and teach our children to treat everyone with respect and that we must learn to use our words rather than violence. Greg Bruns

Reflecting on a little bit of excess Andrew

Holota

On Point We hit a significant milestone in the house not long ago. We ran out of tinfoil. Now, you ask, what the heck kind of a milestone is that? Well, it is in the sense that we have not run out of tinfoil for the past 10 years. That is to say, in terms of the same roll of tinfoil... I’ve run out of time. I’ve run out of patience. I’ve run out of sunny optimism. I’ve even run out of things to say. But I’ve never run out of tinfoil. That’s because we had more tinfoil than patience, time, optimism, and most everything else – thanks to a big box warehouse store that sells massive quantities of everyday stuff. My wife – generally a minimalist in most respects – ventured in there about a decade ago, and was overcome

by the bigness of it all. She temporarily lost her mind. She came home with enormous quantities of dish soap, toilet paper, canned mushroom soup, shampoo, and one immense roll of tinfoil. That thing was at least two feet wide, and long enough to ... well, last 10 years. There was enough tinfoil on that tube to make protective anti-alien-ray hats for 500 whackos. Instead, it wrapped 500 roast chickens and barbecued salmon. And thus, a long legacy came to an end (puns intended). I’m not big on mega-quantity purchasing. That’s not too surprising, I suppose, considering our small family of three. Oh, I get the cost savings attraction. A box of Cheerios the size of a Smart Car is cheaper than 20 normal boxes of Cheerios. And a whole lot less packaging, too. That’s definitely a good thing. But then there you are, a small family stuck with all that cereal. Or that 45-gallon drum of shampoo. Now you have to use it every morning of every day, for as long as it takes to

use it all up. I like variety. Who wants to see and smell the same shampoo for 1,295 days? It’s sort of like eating the same thing for dinner for months on end. Which is something you can also do

We’ve become so acquainted with excess that it doesn’t even seem excessive any longer. if you buy an entire skid of Can ‘o’ Goo pasta. That only makes sense if you’re feeding an army of children with undeveloped tastebuds. And there it is – mega-sized purchasing does work for mega-sized families. But it doesn’t explain the stationery supplies. Who could possibly need 36 (plus one more as a bonus!) ballpoint pens?

For that matter, who uses pens anymore? Certainly not for writing letters! Grocery lists, maybe. Imagine how many grocery lists you could write with 36 ballpoint pens. But if you shop at the megawarehouse, then you probably only do a half-dozen grocery lists a year, since you buy enough supplies in one go to last two months. Maybe it’s just me. I like going shopping every weekend, poking around the aisles, buying the bits and pieces I need ... or don’t need. And if I don’t need them, why would I want 24 of the same thing? I think this part of the world has become a bit obsessed with the “bigger and more is better” concept. We’ve become so acquainted with excess that it doesn’t even seem excessive any longer. In fact, we welcome opportunities to super-size the excess. A visit to a Third World country would do us all good. I am going to miss that big old roll of tinfoil, though. I never did get around to making myself a protective anti-alien-ray hat.

ABBOTSFORD FORECLOSURE

Council should ‘get out of health care’ The subject of harm reduction is heating up in Abbotsford, as city hall staff anxiously await the Fraser Health Harm Reduction Implementation Plan that will be submitted to mayor and council this spring. Recent letters in the media appear to be from citizens concerned about a mayor and council that attempt to control/impede the access to health care for the most marginalized and vulnerable in Abbotsford. Abbotsford’s zoning bylaw that essentially prohibits harm reduction services in Abbotsford is in direct contradiction to national health policy, provincial health policy, Fraser Health policy, and let us not forget the BC Centre for Disease Control health policy. Citizens of Abbotsford rely on a mayor and council to keep themselves and their children safe and healthy. Known also as “Murder Capital” and “Disease Central,” Abbotsford citizens need

to educate themselves on what type of decisions/ bylaws will keep them safe and healthy. A recent report by Dr. Evan Wood which won the British Medical Journal’s doctor of the year award indicates that criminalizing drug users causes the spread of violence and disease in communities. So, in “Murder Capital” and “Disease Central,” can a reasonably educated individual believe the right decisions are being made to keep them safe and healthy in Abbotsford? Message to mayor and council: Get out of health care and let the experts tell you what you need to have a safe and healthy community. You have failed miserably at the expense of the most marginalized and vulnerable. Inflicting unnecessary suffering is cruel and unusual!

LFL objectifies women In response to the letter from Ian Mackenzie on Feb. 23, regarding the Lingerie Football League playing in the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, I would like to offer a different point of view. Firstly, Mackenzie says the women involved do not appear to be exploited. These women are dressing in underwear in order to play in an amateur league, for which they do not get paid. In fact, they pay to be in the league. He also says that the women take the game seriously as athletes. This would necessitate proper protective gear as a part of the uniform. These women are not given the safety gear that other football players are required to wear while playing this rugged sport. The players have the option of buying their own health coverage for injuries that they may, and probably will, sustain while playing with inadequate padding. Secondly, the aspect of sexuality used as a marketing strategy as described by Mackenzie is not simply a strategy. The whole theme of the league is the objectification of women. On the website for the LFL, the pictures are of women in their uniforms, complete with garters, playing while their wares are falling out of their clothes. Mackenzie goes on to discuss the economic benefits of hosting the LFL in Abbotsford, saying that the league is paying upfront and is not asking for municipal subsidies like our local Abbotsford Heat hockey team.

My response to MLA John van Dongen leaving the sinking Liberal ship is “right on, John.” I have more respect for John than if he stayed with the Liberals. There have been too many questionable decsions on the part of the Liberal leadership including the sale of BC Rail, HST debacle and the latest issue of cancelling the proposed $35-million sale of naming rights on BC Place stadium to Telus. I think it took alot of courage for John to leave the Liberal caucus. I wish more Liberal members would follow John’s lead. Ian Mackenzie

Shame to the Conservative Party for allowing John van Dongen to join them. I believe the reasons John van Dongen used to jump over the fence are only to save his own political career. All along, John knew and was part of the government that tried unsuccessfully to cover the train affair. He knew and supported the implementation of HST, he supported the almost billion dollars spent for the roof renovation of B.C. Place instead of putting that money to families in need. Although I’m commending you for resigning the solicitor general post over the speeding tickets affair, I wish you had walked away from the governing party instead of waiting for the results of the polls. I hope voters of B.C. are remembering you and your ex-colleagues in the 2013 elections.

Planting for the future

ABBOTSFORD

PARADE ST

Last week, the Fraser Valley Conservancy and 38 volunteers spent a day planting more than 600 plants and trees in the Maclure Wetlands, located by Maclure Road and Babich Street. According to the conservancy, Fraser Valley wetlands have declined by as much as 75 per cent due to conversion to farm land or for urban development. The Maclure Wetland Restoration and Habitat Creation Project will help reverse that trend by restoring the 16 acre marsh-wetland habitat, and increasing public awareness by educating the public, university students and volunteers about the importance of healthy ecosystems for the protection of critical habitat and wildlife. The wetland was donated to FVC in the fall of 2008. The wetlands provide homes for many species, including the provincially blue-listed mountain beaver, green herons, and red-legged frogs and are also a potential habitat for the red-listed Pacific Water Shrew. FVC recently received funding from Environment Canada EcoAction Community Funding Program and the RBC Blue Water

The Warm Zone has been forced to reduce its hours, and a new executive director is still looking for sources of funding to keep operating the safe house for “street-engaged” women. The Warm Zone has been operated by the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley (WRSFV) for three years in downtown Abbotsford, buoyed by federal funding of $93,000 per year over the life of a three-year pilot project. Many of the clients are homeless, work in the sex trade, and are drug addicted. The Warm Zone offers a place to sleep, eat, do laundry, shower, and other basic domestic functions. The funding ran out in March, and the lease for the building in downtown Abbotsford, near Jubilee Park, is also nearing an end. Executive director Dorothy Henneveld is new on the job at the WRSFV, having recently come from Edmonton, where she worked for Catholic Social Services – one of the largest multi-service non-profits in North America. Henneveld said she will work hard to keep the Warm Zone. “It’s vital. The service we give to women is outstanding – it’s extraordinary,” she said. She is looking for $200,000 in operating funding from the provincial government, and would like the city to partner in the project by providing a facility. However, she is watching what council does with its anti-harm-reduction bylaw, which is presently under review. The Warm Zone offers needle exchange services to clients, which contravenes the city regulations. “The anti-harm-reduction bylaw is proving to be a bit of a barrier,” said Henneveld. “We’re explicitly breaking a bylaw.” At the same time, she said the city appears to value the service offered by the Warm Zone.

Job action blocked

B.C.’s health authorities have won a temporary court injunction barring anesthesiologists from a planned job action to disrupt thousands of elective surgeries this week. The B.C. Anesthesiologists Society (BCAS), which is in a labour dispute with the province, had vowed to reduce service at all Lower Mainland hospitals outside of Vancouver, as well as others on Vancouver Island and in the Interior, starting April 2. The B.C. Supreme Court ruling last Friday freezes that strategy until a full hearing can be heard on the injunction request April 18. Society president Dr. Jeff Rains said members intend to fully abide by the judge’s instructions. He would not say whether anesthesiologists will go ahead with the job action if the injunction request is rejected in court later this month. “From the very beginning our path forward has not been as an end goal to withdraw services from patients,” he said. “Our goal is to improve services to patients. Interior Health president and CEO Dr. Robert Halpenny, speaking on behalf of all health authorities, said the injunction was necessary because urgent and emergency surgeries could have been compromised. Health authorities sent out 3,237 letters to patients last week warning their surgeries may be rescheduled, with 1,105 patients in Fraser Health receiving the advisory. Patients most likely to be affected by any future job action are ones awaiting nonurgent procedures such as hip or knee replacements and

cataract surgeries. Anesthesiolo gists are trying to pressure the province to allow their society to bargain separately, rather than under the umbrella of the B.C. Medical Association, which they say does not represent their interests.

Heat defenceman Clay Wilson eludes a Rochester Americans forechecker.

Records fall as Heat sweep Americans Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Neither Jason Jaffray’s old Abbotsford Heat scoring records nor the Rochester Americans were able to survive the red-hot offensive play of Ben Walter and Krys Kolanos this week. Over the course of two huge wins over the Amerks at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, Walter and Kolanos both eclipsed franchise single-season scoring standards set by Jaffray back in 2009-10. During Tuesday’s dominant 4-0 triumph, Walter notched a goal and an assist to move to 55 points on the season, one better than Jaffray’s team record. On Wednesday, Kolanos’s second-

period goal gave him 26 for the campaign, surpassing Jaffray’s mark of 25. The Heat went on to win 4-3 in overtime, with Kolanos setting up Walter for the game-winner. “We got good leadership out of those guys (Kolanos and Walter) at critical moments,” Heat head coach Troy Ward said. “That’s when I thought they were exceptional. They showed their experience.” Goalie Danny Taylor was between the pipes for both triumphs, including his fourth shutout of the season on Tuesday, as No. 1 netminder Leland Irving and his wife Ashley were anticipating the imminent arrival of their first child. The wins left the Heat with a sliver of breathing room in the

First of all, I shouldn’t be on the phone (while driving). Second of all, I’m about ready to have a heart attack here.’ It’s really an exciting time for Akim.� Q Heat defencemen Clay Wilson and Brian Connelly were both named AHL second team all-stars on Thursday. Connelly is second in the league in scoring among defencemen with 49 points in 69 games split between the Rockford IceHogs and the Heat, while Wilson is sixth with 41 points in 63 games.

East Abbotsford residents who live near DeLair Park can expect to hear the crack of the bat ringing out with increased frequency this season. That’s because the Abbotsford Cardinals are boasting a great deal of depth, talent and experience in the batting order as they embark on a new B.C. Premier Baseball League campaign this weekend. Head coach Corey Eckstein, who moves up from the Junior Cardinals to run the senior squad this year, believes the offence has the pieces to light up the scoreboard. He’s hoping that potency carries them to a breakthrough season on the elite under-18 circuit, after falling short in the first round of the playoffs in 2011. “Our junior team has been really good since ’08,� Eckstein noted. “I don’t see why

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty potent,â&#x20AC;? Eckstein observed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proven himself offensively at every level heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at.â&#x20AC;? Beyond Todoruk, the Cards have five other position players heading into their third seasons with the senior squad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; centre fielder Tyler Krahn, left fielder Zach Cardoso, first baseman Nick Sheehan, shortstop Adam Revel and catcher Ryan Green. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be expected to drive in runs for us this year,â&#x20AC;? Eckstein said. On the mound, the Cards will rely heavily on Matthew Forsythe, a member of the B.C. Selects squad last summer, and rookie Daniel Koo, who led the B.C. junior league in earned run average last season. From Ecksteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, this season has the makings of a memorable one, in light of the fact heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coached 13 of the Cardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; graduating veterans since they were nine years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To see them in their last year, I want them to really enjoy it and embrace it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a special year.â&#x20AC;? Q The Cardinals open the BCPBL regular season on the road on Saturday, taking on the Fraser Valley Chiefs in a doubleheader at Whalley Athletic Park. They host their home opener at DeLair Park on Sunday, as the Coquitlam Reds visit for 12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. games.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years Lenora (nee Rogers) and four children; Kathleen (Michael) McWhinney, Sharon, Maureen, Michael (Razia) Malone. Mike was predeceased by his youngest daughter, Colleen, who died in 1970. He is also survived by six grand children, James, Kristina, Kaitlin (Renato), Tiana, Rukhsana and Kamran. The grandchildren will miss sharing their stories with their grandfather, who was a great listener. Mike had a colourful life. He and his good friend Denny Duff joined the navy together after leaving high school. Mike became a telegraphist with the Royal Canadian Navy serving on Corvettes and Frigates during WWII and one of his claims to fame was being torpedoed on his birthday in the Bay of Biscay. After the war, the two friends attended the University of Alberta together. Mike enjoyed sports and was proud that he played one football game for the Edmonton Eskimos. When Mike graduated, he became a Professional Chemical Engineer and spent most of his career in the mining industry. He was an expert in explosives and especially enjoyed planning and photographing detonations. In their spare time, Mike and Lenora loved the outdoors, skiing, sailing and playing golf at every opportunity. They were both long time members of the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club and Mike held the title of Past Senior Champion with four holes-in-one to his credit. Mike’s sailboat, The Pat Hand, was a labour of love that he built with his brother and he completed after Pat’s death. Mike and Lenora took many beautiful trips along BC’s coast. The Malone family wishes to thank the Renal Unit nurses at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital, Abbotsford Taxi and Home Care workers, in particular Mark and Raj, for their very kind and compassionate care.
