Valley farmers protest fisheries land control

Waterways next to farmland guarded by setbacks and restrictions Jeff NAGEL, Jessica PETERS and Neil CORBETT Black Press

PURPLE LIGHT NIGHTS

An Abbotsford blueber ry producer joined a group of Valley farmers who publicly demonstrated against the power of Fisheries and Oceans in Vancouver on Tuesday morning. T he protest was organized by the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation (CTF), and approximately 50 farmers and supporters, along with two calves for emphasis, spo spoke outside O E D I V LINE the regional ON ws.com office of the abbyne DF DFO against wha what the CTF calls “unfair and unaccountable application of the Fisheries Act.” The protesters said fisheries officers are unreasonably barring them from clearing or dredging ditches because they’ve been deemed fish habitat. Uncleared ditches can flood farmland, raise the water table and degrade the ability to grow crops or graze cattle, farmers said.

On Tuesday, a group of farmers including several from Abbotsford, protested Department of Fisheries and Oceans regulations that impact agriculture. They brought placards and a pair of calves to Vancouver to emphasize their points.

Abbotsford blueberry farmer Devinder Brar speaks at a protest against the Department of Fisheries and Oceans in Vancouver on Tuesday.

Call for ‘common sense’

From A1

26 years, explained how the DFO impacts his livelihood, due to the fact he has a stream running through his 30-acre farm. He must observe Fisheries Act regulations for setbacks, and says that takes four to five acres of his land out of production. He estimates that land could grow $50,000 to $70,000 worth of blueberries every year. “We pay hundreds of thousands per acre when we buy farms, but they (DFO) want that for free. How can they do that?” asks Brar. “You cannot expropriate land without compensation.” He said the land the DFO “expropriates” on his farm is worth approximately $500,000. Brar said farmers are not against protecting fish habitat, but see the DFO as heavy handed. He said it has become an

irritant for a growing number of Valley producers. “They (DFO) have too much power,” said Brar. “There’s no common sense.” At the protest, Agassiz and area farmers told stories of digging ditches to drain agriculturally abundant Fraser Valley land, only to be told by the DFO that they can no longer farm within 30 metres of those ditches because they are now “fish habitat.” “The DFO is taking this land from these farmers w i t h o u t a ny c o n c e r n about their livelihoods or understanding about agriculture,” said Jordan Bateman, CTF B.C. director. “Why are we spending thousands or millions of dollars to employ Fisheries and Oceans bureaucrats to persecute in-land farmers?” “Farms and fish have coexisted in this country for generations without unnecessary DFO involvement,”

added Bateman. “These taxpayers deserve the right to farm their land – but every time a DFO bureaucrat shows up, it means more unnecessary red tape, more on-the-fly rule-making and more frustration for farmers.” He said the Fisheries Act needs to be changed to reflect how vital irrigation and drainage are to farms, and he announced the launch of a national petition calling on the federal government to substantially reform the Fisheries Act. Wilder ness Committee policy director Gwen Barlee said far mers may have some legitimate concerns over fishery issues, “but we don’t want to be rolling back environmental standards. “If we can’t protect fish habitat, there’s no way to protect fish,” she said. Ecojustice staff scientist Susan Pinkus said recovery strategies launched by the

B.C.’s labour minister is defending changes to the workplace regulation that required employers to provide a secure barrier for nightshift employees who work alone. Changes took effect Sunday that allow another option for operators of gas stations, convenience stores and other 24-hour businesses.

She said only one per cent of the critical habitat of the Salish sucker is in ditches, although some streams also run through farms, triggering large setbacks. Brar said the protest did appear to garner significant media attention, and he hopes it will make a difference. The petition can be found at www.taxpayer.com and will be presented to the Minister of Fisheries later this year. Several calls were placed by Black Press for DFO comment, however, the agency said it could not respond by press deadline Tuesday.

The original regulation is known as Grant’s Law, after Maple Ridge gas station employee Grant De Patie, who was run over and killed in 2005 when he tried to stop a driver from leaving without paying for gasoline. Labour Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said Monday the main provision of Grant’s Law is mandatory pre-payment for gasoline, and that remains.

ADVERTORIAL

BY DR. ELIZABETH BORGMANN

Spring has sprung and those of us with gardens have been quick to head outdoors to putter. But are our gardens safe for our four legged companions? Here are a few hazards to watch out for: Structural hazards: Walk around your garden and assess the condition of structures. Look for unstable or rotting fences, protruding nails, deck and balcony holes or climbing spots, and water hazards. Chemical hazards: Many pesticides and herbicides are hazardous to pets. Read labels. If it is toxic to you...it’s toxic to pets. Make sure it does not get on their fur only to be licked off and ingested. Commonly ingested toxic products include slug bait, fertilizer and weed killer on your lawn, rodent bait, deck sealants, and citronella candles. Remember—some dogs will eat anything!

Botanical hazards: www.aspca.org/pet-care/poisoncontrol/plants lists over 448 different toxic plants and is an excellent resource. Generally, bulbs tend to be toxic, as are many ferns. Beware of lilies, rhododendrons, Japanese Yews and Ivy. Local garden shops can help you choose pet friendly plants. Blue green algae in ponds and compost can also be hazardous. Zoological hazards: The most common problem is the bug bite! Stinging insects can cause your pet’s face to swell. And don’t let them quarrel with wildlife. Even deer can mean trouble! Decorative hazards: Yes, as mentioned, dogs will eat anything. Mulch is a favourite. Rocks can be quite palatable too. And cocoa mulch is toxic (too much theobromine, just like in chocolate)! May you have a safe outdoor gardening season!

All have a stake in this

Kinder Morgan announced on Thursday that it plans to more than double the capacity of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline, which runs from Edmonton to Burnaby. It runs through Abbotsford. The pipeline will carry an additional 550,000 barrels per day of crude oil and refined oil products, for a total of 850,000 barrels per day. Some will be shipped to Asian customers through an existing marine terminal on Burrard Inlet. The company has been studying the economic feasibility of expanding its system for some time, and the heightened interest in shipping Alberta crude, some of it from the oil sands, to Asian customers has been obvious. While there will be enormous pressure from environmentalists to stop this pipeline, the case needs to be fully studied on all fronts — economic, environmental, legal and ethical. While many groups love to decry fossil fuels, the fact remains that most

parts of the world are dependent on them to keep their economies functioning. The Trans Mountain pipeline is, in many ways, a better alternative than the Northern Gateway pipeline which has attracted so much attention. It is an existing pipeline and land issues have been sorted out. The operators over the years have had a good, albeit nor perfect, track record. There was a major spill in 1971, due to clear-cut logging above the pipeline near Merritt, and another in Burnaby in 2007, due to a rupture of the pipeline by a contractor. Those appear to be the most damaging incidents in the pipeline’s almost 60-year existence. Kinder Morgan needs federal approval to build the pipeline extension. In the meantime, it needs to do extensive consultation in communities along the pipeline route — including Abbotsford. We all have a stake in a project of this magnitude. – Black Press

Environmentalism for dummies Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views David Suzuki has resigned as a director of his namesake foundation so it won’t be the target of federal government “attacks.” This news is conveyed to me in a Globe and Mail report that is typically tilted in deference to “Canada’s most famous environmentalist.” The usual assumptions are woven in: Suzuki is a saint. His every utterance is treated as scientific fact, even when it’s a left-wing political rant. The Conservative government is a front for Big Oil that has “attacked” environmental groups by reminding them that political activities are not eligible for charitable tax exemptions. In recent years, the David Suzuki Foundation’s campaign focus has been noticeably in step with the large U.S. foundations that fund most of B.C.’s enviro-scare industry: first salmon farming and now the Alberta “tar

sands” in all its exaggerated horror. Suzuki’s personal activities aren’t easily distinguished from those of his foundation, as was illustrated with his recent CBC documentary that demonized the tar sands. Diseased fish were displayed, but natural contamination of the Athabasca River was glossed over. Aboriginal objections were highlighted, while local support and economic benefits were overlooked. This isn’t science or charity. It’s tabloid journalism. Sensationalize, ignore facts that weaken the drama, play to people’s emotions. And he expects to be subsidized by the CBC and charitable tax exemptions as well? This news comes as I finish reading Patrick Moore’s book, Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout. I was one of many young fans who cheered as Moore, Bob Hunter and the other 1970s Greenpeace pioneers set out from Vancouver to disrupt Soviet nuclear testing, and then turned to the regime’s slaughter of whales. In 1986, Moore split with Greenpeace and worked to set up a family chinook salmon farm. He said Greenpeace opposed aquaculture because it destroys tropical mangrove swamps.

Tropical prawn farms have no rational connection with B.C., but a global organization needs simple ideas that sell. This approach was seen in an earlier 1980s campaign against chlorine in pulp mills. Greenpeace protests against dioxins and the herbicide 2,4,5-T were eventually dumbed down to opposing the use of chlorine in all industries, including production of PVC plastic.

Suzuki is a saint. His every utterance is treated as scientific fact, even when it’s a left-wing political rant. Pulp mills developed a way to eliminate trace dioxins from their production, but that didn’t matter once Greenpeace had a global campaign going. They still used chlorine, so they’re bad. Speaking of chlorine, PCBs are polychlorinated biphenyls, a persistent background toxin. Tests found levels three to five times higher in some wild salmon compared to farmed. But the

wild salmon results were ignored in a 2004 study, used by Suzuki to depict farmed salmon as poisonous. His foundation’s salmon farm campaign quietly disappeared down the memory hole after its PCB claims were debunked. Moore highlighted another bit of greenwashing in a visit to Victoria last year. The vaunted “LEED” certification for green building standards gives you points if your concrete is locally sourced, but no points for using wood instead. That’s because the long campaign by major environmental groups has devolved to “logging is bad.” Here’s the latest example. Greenpeace, ForestEthics and the Sierra Club were bankrolled by U.S. foundations to negotiate with the B.C. government, aboriginal people and forest companies for the 2006 “Great Bear Rainforest” agreement on the B.C. coast. Economic opportunity was delicately balanced against preservation, and First Nations gained new control of forests. Now the big enviros have begun campaigning against their own deal. As much as 50 per cent could still be logged, they say. It seems this particular green peace is bad for their business. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

letters Shouldn’t judge panhandlers While there will always be people trying to take advantage of others, it’s unfair to paint all panhandlers with the same brush, some are simply trying to meet their basic essentials for living. Just because someone looks healthy and able to work, it does not mean they are. We should not judge someone’s ability to work based on them being male, young or healthy looking, as not all disabilities that keep one from the work force are visible, such as many mental health issues. With mention to why a panhandler may turn down food when offered, I offer this reason – between the food bank and the Salvation Army many are able to meet their food needs, but still need money for things such as bus passes and transportation and other items one may need in life and not necessary in need of food. Those who are panhandling are many times the poorest and most at risk in our society. Speaking from experience, asking complete strangers for spare change is not an easy task, nor is living off the $235 per month assistance pays for a single person after housing is paid. Yes, some will say “get a job,” but at the moment due to health concerns working is not an option for me, and it’s not an option for many. Abbotsford is not an easy city to be poor in, due to limited services available and offered, and those that are offering are likely stretched thin trying to help. Try and put yourself in their shoes, and don’t think it can’t or won’t happen to you. A prolonged illness can wipe out savings quickly and before you know it, you are living off assistance, panhandling and just trying to survive. Justin Smith

Pair sentenced in fraud case

$10 million in false GST claims

purporting to export lumber, shake and shingle products between 1994 and 1997 and fraudulently claimed GST refunds of between $400,000 and

$2.4 million each. The judge ruled that 13 of those companies were proved by the Crown to be shams, while there was not enough proof that the

other seven were also false. Gill testified at the trial for Bath and Khangura that he signed incorporation documents and ope-

ned bank accounts for three of the false companies – Meadow Forest Products Ltd., Terminal Shake Ltd. and West Bay Shake Ltd. – as well as

conducted numerous banking transactions. In exchange, he received a percentage of the GST refunds, amounting to about

$400,000 in total. He testified that he did not initially know that the companies were false or that the money was being fraudulently claimed.

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Two local men who defrauded the government of $10 million in GST refunds were sentenced to jail terms on Tuesday in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Sikander Bath, 57, of Mission received a sentence of four and a half years after previously being convicted of six counts of fraud over $5,000. Manjit Khangura, 41, of Abbotsford received a three-year term for three counts of fraud. The two men were originally each charged with 20 counts of fraud and two counts of money laundering. They were found guilty in December of some of those charges during their trial. A third man, Paramjit Gill, 55, previously pleaded guilty to three fraud offences and was sentenced in February to two years less a day in prison after agreeing to testify for the Crown. The Crown had alleged that Khangura and Bath created 20 false companies

Volunteer Week Volunteering takes many different forms, and is performed by a wide range of people. Many volunteers have been specifically trained in the areas they work, while others serve on a casual basis, addressing a specific need or call to action. While not monetarily compensated for their efforts, their actions reap many benefits. Volunteers can also gain a new set of skills that are easily transferable to other aspects of employment and personal life. Volunteering provides an opportunity to gain a feeling of self-worth, which increases self-confidence. It is a perfect opportunity for young workers to determine their strengths and interests, while gaining valuable experience in the workforce. In addition, it provides young workers an opportunity to gain skills as well as work and personal references to include in their professional resumes.

VOLUNTEERS have always been an integral part of our organization. In fact, FVCDC was formed in 1982 when a group of dedicated volunteers prioritized the need to bring services for children with special needs to the Fraser Valley. Over the past 30 years, volunteers have given their time and energy to be involved with our events including camps, therapy groups, Christmas Parties, fundraising events (walkathon), at a board level and more. With their commitment we are â&#x20AC;&#x153;Helping Kids Shineâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Volunteering with FVCDC is an honor and I take great pride in the opportunity. FVCDC helped me a lot when my child was younger and we were receiving FVCDC services. Now that I have some more time, I enjoy being able to give back as a volunteer with FVCDC groups.â&#x20AC;? ~ Annalisa â&#x20AC;&#x153;I volunteered at FVCDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer camp.

T

he 3 Alarm Adventure Race is back for its fourth consecutive year and organizers anticipate a record turnout. The event which takes place on Sunday, May 13, is a fun and challenging race, which over the span of a half day, incorporates running, mountain biking, canoeing, orienteering and other “mystery” competitions. Part of the appeal of adventure racing is expecting the unexpected. Race directors pride themselves on challenging racers with unexpected or unusual tasks. Past competitions have found participants face a series of challenges from the ice surface at the local recreation centre to competing in firefighting events including an obstacle course in full firefighter gear, pushing a fire truck and using a high pressure fire hose to spray a target. The Abbotsford 3 Alarm competition raises money for the Abbotsford Firefighter’s Burn Fund, a charity dedicated to assisting the recovery of burn survivors. The event relies on local sponsors and a group of dedicated community volunteers

who contribute time and resources to ensure success, while promoting an active lifestyle. Last year’s race raised $10,000 for the Burn Fund. Racers enter in teams of four and can compete in either the Competitive or Recreational Division. Competitive is aimed at hard-core weekend warriors while Recreational places more emphasis on the fun aspects of the event, though still providing a physical

challenge. In addition, the Recreational division offers three different classes; Open, High School and Masters – for those over 55. While last year’s event attracted 26 teams, organizers anticipate a larger turnout this year – despite the Mother’s Day date, and have limited the 2012 race to 40 teams. Spots are still available but teams should register as soon as possible in order to secure their place.

The sport of adventure racing has been growing worldwide at a phenomenal rate and is one of the few sports where just completing a race is often considered a victory. Most adventure races are team events and emphasize the importance of teamwork rather than individual achievement. While some world-class adventure races take place over the span of several days and require months of preparation and training, the Abbotsford event is somewhat less intense. Much of the event takes place in the “side-country” of the city. These are the semi-rural areas that surround much of Abbotsford’s urban core and are often unexplored by area residents. Adventure racing has been said to allow individuals to find their limits and push through them, and the Abbotsford race is no exception.

Dr. Elizabeth Borgmann with Munchkin

r. Elizabeth Borgmann decided to take the long road to her dream job and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regret a moment of it. Before becoming a veterinarian at the Whatcom Road Veterinarian Hospital, she earned her Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in cell biology and Masters in genetics (gene cloning). With 11 years of post-secondary education behind her, she considers herself an eternal student and says she â&#x20AC;&#x153;never wants to stop learning.â&#x20AC;? Borgmann knew she wanted to be a vet since the age of 10, however she began doubting herself when a teacher told her she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;smart enough.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went on throughout school believing that,â&#x20AC;? said Borgmann. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until she relocated and began working with the National Research Council of Saskatoon that the opportunity to pursue her dream arose again, in the most peculiar way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One winter morning our black lab escaped from the backyard, ran into the road and was hit by a car,â&#x20AC;? Borgmann recalled. Devastated by the accident, Borgmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband rushed their

Veterinarian, Dr. Elizabeth Borgmann

dog to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine for treatment, where he thought he saw his wife as a vet walking towards him to help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt inclined to tell him about my childhood dream. With his encouragement, I was able to overcome my doubt and reapply for school where I graduated with honours. In 1994, Borgmann ďŹ nally began her second and long anticipated career as a veterinarian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lesson here is to never tell a child what they can or cannot do, especially when their potential is not yet developed.â&#x20AC;? She has now been practicing veterinarian medicine for 18 years, and has worked at the Whatcom location for the past six and a half, where she says she gets to do â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little bit of everything.â&#x20AC;? Her daily duties range from lab work, collecting samples, testing, x-rays and surgery, to building new relationships and maintaining her client base. A variety of animals have come to the clinic to have their aches and pains cured by Borgmann, including

cats, dogs, birds, bunnies, hamsters, otters, beavers, bears and deer. Even though the animals cannot verbally thank her, Borgmann emphasizes that there is no lack of gratitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a relationship-based profession where animals come with people attached to them. My clients and their pets feel like family.â&#x20AC;? Working as a veterinarian requires an extensive amount of post-secondary education and a broad range of experience, however, Borgmann said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the key to becoming truly successful is learning the importance of working with people, too.â&#x20AC;? Borgmann believes her previous career in genetics helped her better understand the ďŹ eld of veterinarian medicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned to deal with the fact that what I know to be true today may not necessarily be true tomorrow.â&#x20AC;? Veterinarian work provides enough daily challenges that allow an eternal student like Dr. Elizabeth Borgmann to continue learning, and she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more pleased at the outcome of fulďŹ lling her dream.

Crease conundrum

Danny Taylor’s strong play in recent weeks has made Heat head coach Troy Ward’s decision on who to start in net in Game 1 of the playoffs more complicated.

Choosing between Irving and Taylor no easy task for Ward

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Heat’s goaltending situation isn’t a simmering controversy on par with that of the Vancouver Canucks, where fans have been divided as to whether they’d like to see the local NHL team start Roberto Luongo or Cory Schneider. But as the Heat prepare to embark on their first-round playoff series against the Milwaukee Admirals – Game 1 goes Friday in Wisconsin – head coach Troy Ward has an intriguing decision to make between Leland Irving and Danny Taylor. Back on March 29, in the wake of a 5-4 shootout loss to the Chicago Wolves, Ward indicated Irving would be the go-to guy for the stretch drive. At the time, it seemed like a fairly standard choice – Irving, the Heat’s team MVP in 2010-11, has established himself as the No. 2 goalie in the Calgary Flames organization this season, and was called up three times in the second half to make spot starts in relief of Miikka Kiprusoff. But circumstances change, and it’s Taylor who has been the better goalie in Abbotsford of late. With Irving and wife Ashley welcoming their first child on April 5, Taylor made five straight starts and won all of them, posting a dazzling 1.19 goals-against average and a .951 save percentage during that stretch. Over his last 13 starts, Taylor has sustained just one regulation defeat. Irving, meanwhile, has struggled with consistency under adverse conditions – bouncing between the AHL and NHL while balancing the stress of impending fatherhood. He went 4-4-1 with a 3.55 goals against average and an .875 save percentage in the month of March. The Swan Hills, Alta. native saw his first game action in over two weeks on Sunday against the Toronto Marlies, and allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 5-4 overtime win. On Monday, after the Heat’s final home-ice practice before flying to Milwaukee, Ward said he hadn’t settled on a

Game 1 starter yet. As to the criteria he’d consider in making the decision, the Heat bench boss said it would be merit-based.

But he cautioned not to read too much into that. “With merit said, it would be like, ‘Oh, you’replayingTaylor?’”

Ward said, anticipating the next question from reporters. “Well, not necessarily. “We have to look

Heat open playoffs in Milwaukee on Friday From A17

at how we managed our games against Milwaukee, how we stack up against Milwaukee, who’s played in goal, how have we played when those guys have been in goal, how has their team changed since the last time

we played them. There’s just a lot of variables that go into making the right decision.” Taylor and Irving seem to get along well, and neither framed the situation in adversarial terms. “Regardless of who it is,

I think this team has every bit of confidence in both of us, that we’re going to get the job done,” Taylor said. “Me and Irv are practicing like we’ll play Game 1, and we’ll find out going forward.” Irving said he felt good be-

tween the pipes on Sunday, considering the layoff. “We play every game and work hard all summer for this moment,” he said, speaking of the playoffs. “Everyone’s excited, and you’ve got to find that next level and be ready when-

ever you’re called upon.” Q The opening round of the Calder Cup playoffs are best-of-five series, and the first two games between the Heat and Admirals go on Friday and Sunday in Milwaukee. Games 3-5 are back at the

Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (the latter two only if necessary), on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday (April 25, 27, 28). For more Heat playoff preview coverage, visit the Heat Central page at abbynews.com

Canada calls for Craddock

Yale Lions point guard Kendra Arnold has been selected for the B.C. high school basketball all-star game. The all-star event is on Saturday, April 21 at UBC, with the girls tipping off at 1:30 p.m. followed by the boys at 3 p.m. This past season, Arnold led the Yale senior girls to their first trip to AAA provincials in more than two decades, and earned second team all-star honours as the Lions finished sixth. She'll play for Team Sollero at the all-star game, coached by Centennial Centaurs bench boss Rob Sollero. On the boys side, no Abbotsford players made the cut, but a trio of University of the Fraser Valley recruits did. Luke Morris will play on the team helmed by his Mission Secondary coach Danny Jakobs, along with future Cascades teammate Max Neuman of Maple Ridge. Rav Dhaliwal of Surrey’s Tamanawis Secondary will be on the opposing team led by Terry Fox Ravens coach Steve Hanson. For full rosters, visit abbynews.com.

All creatures great and small

Creatively indulging the travel urge Kelsey KLASSEN, Contributor

W

ith the recent spell of sunshine, it looks like the winter-that-wouldn’t-end has finally lost its will to live. Golf clubs and hiking boots, boat trailers and tent bags are being dusted off all over the Lower Mainland, but when the weather once again turns – and it will – you’d be forgiven for reaching for the first all-inclusive trip out of here. But is that still the first option you should turn to? The flagging economy hasn’t drained the creativity of people who keep things moving in new directions, so it depends what type of traveller you are. 1) You know what WWOOFing is. Working organic farm-stays and garden camping are adventurously simple solutions for a cash-strapped sojourner. If you are at home in the muck, meeting new people and living in their backyards, even working while you travel, you can see the world. (Campinmygarden.com, WWOOF.ca) 2) You’ve been alive for at least three decades, but still have things to see. When the backpacking grows old, the creative get flashpacking – a neologism that refers to the “disposably incomed” backpacker. Trading in your 75-litre pack for a suitcase with wheels

doesn’t mean you’ve outgrown budget travel, but the novelty of top bunk wears off for many by the time they hit 30. Gravitating towards cheap hotels or private rooms at hostels, and packing clothes that you could be seen wearing in your hometown supermarket are the mark of a flashpacker. 3) You’re more likely to be going on your first cruise than your first trip to Europe. With word of mouth still being the most effective way of guaranteeing a good time, crowd-sourcing vacation tips from your social networks and local travel agents is putting the human back in holiday. Nothing is worse than investing five-star dollars in a subpar experience. The overwhelming amount of information found online can be unreliable and is often easily boiled down by experienced travellers to the good, the bad and the “it will be funny one day.” 4) You’re a woman. The comfort and security of women’s-only has been popular in the fitness industry for decades, but it is now dipping a painted toe into the travel sector. Floors exclusively for women are becoming popular. The 10th floor of the Georgian Court in Vancouver is a local example, with 18 rooms set aside containing amenities such as curling irons, blow dryers, nail polish and yoga mats.

5) Airline workers greet you by name. The American Transportation Security Administration is partnering with private enterprise to change the face of travel. Security lanes for pre-screened passengers are already opened in Florida and Denver, and the pilot program will expand by May to San Francisco and Fort Worth. All together, 25 major airports are tapped to have Clear Lanes, which arguably eases overall congestion at security checkpoints while raising money and providing a service for time-pressed business travellers who are willing to choose convenience over cash ($179 per year). If iris scanners and fingerprint biometrics don’t sound freakishly futuristic, than you can soon be a trusted traveller, and all that time in the air means you’d probably be excited to see a new airport. Myanmar, Ukraine, Jordan, Uganda and Denmark are making names for themselves in 2012 – or you could be really farsighted and visit Russia before the 2014 Olympics defibrillates their struggling tourism industry. No matter what your budget or lifestyle, the annual trip is often the only thing that provides enough watercooler chit-chat and evenly tanned Facebook photos to get the West Coaster through to the summer, so don’t be afraid to do it differently.

Dr. Elizabeth Borgmann with Munchkin

r. Elizabeth Borgmann decided to take the long road to her dream job and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regret a moment of it. Before becoming a veterinarian at the Whatcom Road Veterinarian Hospital, she earned her Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in cell biology and Masters in genetics (gene cloning). With 11 years of post-secondary education behind her, she considers herself an eternal student and says she â&#x20AC;&#x153;never wants to stop learning.â&#x20AC;? Borgmann knew she wanted to be a vet since the age of 10, however she began doubting herself when a teacher told her she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;smart enough.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went on throughout school believing that,â&#x20AC;? said Borgmann. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until she relocated and began working with the National Research Council of Saskatoon that the opportunity to pursue her dream arose again, in the most peculiar way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One winter morning our black lab escaped from the backyard, ran into the road and was hit by a car,â&#x20AC;? Borgmann recalled. Devastated by the accident, Borgmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband rushed their

JUST IN TIME FOR SPRING

â&#x201E;˘

Veterinarian, Dr. Elizabeth Borgmann

dog to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine for treatment, where he thought he saw his wife as a vet walking towards him to help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt inclined to tell him about my childhood dream. With his encouragement, I was able to overcome my doubt and reapply for school where I graduated with honours. In 1994, Borgmann ďŹ nally began her second and long anticipated career as a veterinarian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lesson here is to never tell a child what they can or cannot do, especially when their potential is not yet developed.â&#x20AC;? She has now been practicing veterinarian medicine for 18 years, and has worked at the Whatcom location for the past six and a half, where she says she gets to do â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little bit of everything.â&#x20AC;? Her daily duties range from lab work, collecting samples, testing, x-rays and surgery, to building new relationships and maintaining her client base. A variety of animals have come to the clinic to have their aches and pains cured by Borgmann, including

cats, dogs, birds, bunnies, hamsters, otters, beavers, bears and deer. Even though the animals cannot verbally thank her, Borgmann emphasizes that there is no lack of gratitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a relationship-based profession where animals come with people attached to them. My clients and their pets feel like family.â&#x20AC;? Working as a veterinarian requires an extensive amount of post-secondary education and a broad range of experience, however, Borgmann said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the key to becoming truly successful is learning the importance of working with people, too.â&#x20AC;? Borgmann believes her previous career in genetics helped her better understand the ďŹ eld of veterinarian medicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned to deal with the fact that what I know to be true today may not necessarily be true tomorrow.â&#x20AC;? Veterinarian work provides enough daily challenges that allow an eternal student like Dr. Elizabeth Borgmann to continue learning, and she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more pleased at the outcome of fulďŹ lling her dream.

he 3 Alarm Adventure Race is back for its fourth consecutive year and organizers anticipate a record turnout. The event which takes place on Sunday, May 13, is a fun and challenging race, which over the span of a half day, incorporates running, mountain biking, canoeing, orienteering and other “mystery” competitions. Part of the appeal of adventure racing is expecting the unexpected. Race directors pride themselves on challenging racers with unexpected or unusual tasks. Past competitions have found participants face a series of challenges from the ice surface at the local recreation centre to competing in firefighting events including an obstacle course in full firefighter gear, pushing a fire truck and using a high pressure fire hose to spray a target. The Abbotsford 3 Alarm competition raises money for the Abbotsford Firefighter’s Burn Fund, a charity dedicated to assisting the recovery of burn survivors. The event relies on local sponsors and a group of dedicated community volunteers

who contribute time and resources to ensure success, while promoting an active lifestyle. Last year’s race raised $10,000 for the Burn Fund. Racers enter in teams of four and can compete in either the Competitive or Recreational Division. Competitive is aimed at hard-core weekend warriors while Recreational places more emphasis on the fun aspects of the event, though still providing a physical

challenge. In addition, the Recreational division offers three different classes; Open, High School and Masters – for those over 55. While last year’s event attracted 26 teams, organizers anticipate a larger turnout this year – despite the Mother’s Day date, and have limited the 2012 race to 40 teams. Spots are still available but teams should register as soon as possible in order to secure their place.

The sport of adventure racing has been growing worldwide at a phenomenal rate and is one of the few sports where just completing a race is often considered a victory. Most adventure races are team events and emphasize the importance of teamwork rather than individual achievement. While some world-class adventure races take place over the span of several days and require months of preparation and training, the Abbotsford event is somewhat less intense. Much of the event takes place in the “side-country” of the city. These are the semi-rural areas that surround much of Abbotsford’s urban core and are often unexplored by area residents. Adventure racing has been said to allow individuals to find their limits and push through them, and the Abbotsford race is no exception. Outdoor enthusiasts who would like more information about this fun and challenging event should visit the 3 Alarm website at: 3aar.wordpress.com Organizers of THREE ALARM ADVENTURE RACE Contributor

Run for Water provides experiential learning to Lower Mainland schools

ou know the three Rs– Reading, wRiting and aRithmatic. The Run for Water adds four Es to the curriculum: equipping, empowerment, exercise and enthusiasm. Last year, in addition to 1,000 students participating in a run on race day on the last Sunday in May, over 2,500 were involved in a mini run or a lesson plan focused on the water crisis in Ethiopia. “Our run is more than running from point A to point B,” Betty Baerg, school liaison explains. “We expose the injustices in Ethiopia’s shortage of water for the forgotten poor, and this lights a fire in students.” The Envision A Better World: Learn, Create, Run are professionally written lesson plans for kindergarten to grade 12, and are available to teachers on the Run for Water website. Thanks to a grant by Envision Financial, hundreds of students have started the program to prepare for the 2012 Run for Water. “At Envision, we are committed to making a positive and lasting impact in the communities in which we live and work,” says Susan Byrom, manager,

corporate citizenship at Envision Financial. “This program helps create a generation of global citizens, equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to become active ambassadors to champion this issue.” Last year Garry Klassen’s class at Upper Sumas Elementary participated in the program. “The students learned that having accessible, clean drinking water results in increased opportunity of education for the girls, develops village trade and prosperity, as well as renewed hope and dignity. To see the video through the eyes of a grade 6 Abbotsford school girl really hit home.” Klassen continues, “The run is the climax to the program. It is a powerful life learning experience.” To help encourage students, Envision Financial hosts a number of awards for school who get involved with the Run for Water.

UFV’s Absolute Style event offers backstage view of fashion industry Researching trends, preparing a collection, and styling models are all a part of UFV’s annual runway show, Absolute Style. The one-day event highlights the work of the Fashion Design program and its grad students, while providing them with real-world fashion industry experience. Absolute Style 2012 is taking place on Wednesday, April 25 with two shows at UFV Abbotsford’s Envision Athletic Centre, 1385 McKenzie Rd. The runway will feature an array of garments, including swimsuits, tailored jackets, dresses and costume wear. Surface Design students will be showcasing items ranging from handpainted silk gowns to Shibori, a popular Japanese fashion method. The Art-toWear students will highlight weaving, draping and machine knitting. “The show is very exciting for students as it’s a culmination of what they’ve learned throughout the two-year program,” said Deanna Devitt, head of UFV’s Fashion Design program.

Since January, students have been working on their collections for the show. They began by researching the market and looking at trends, fabrics and colours. After determining their target customer and presenting their concepts to a panel of instructors and industry professionals, students were able to start development. “Every year the collections are unique and really showcase a variety of markets,” said Devitt. “We have everything from evening wear, to casual, to costume wear. Students really try to target a niche market that they are interested in.” The timeline that students are given to create their line closely mirrors that of the fashion industry. Working backstage at the Absolute Style show will add another element to their knowledge, as they will have to choose the hair and makeup for their models, along with their catwalk music. “They really get to see how fashion works,” said Devitt. “They have to do

UFV’s annual fashion showcase Absolute Style returns for another season on April 25 it all — everything they would do in the fashion industry, including the decisions you have to make.” The fashion show often draws industry professionals, visitors from around B.C., community members, and high school students. “It’s a great way for us to showcase what our university has to offer, show prospective students the campus, and feature the high quality work that our students do,” said Devitt. “It’s very innovative and creative.” The afternoon Absolute Style show is at 2:30 p.m., with doors opening at 2

p.m. The evening show is at 7 p.m., with a wine and cheese event at 6:30 p.m. Through the afternoon, from 1 to 5 p.m., there will be an open house to showcase the Fashion Design program and its projects. Tickets for Absolute Style 2012 are $10 for the afternoon show and $18 for the evening. For tickets, email corinne.richardson@ufv.ca, call 604-557-4073 or visit ufv.ca/fashion.

isit any spa or salon -- or even take a walk through the mall -- and there is a good chance you will come across practitioners of eyebrow threading. The popularity of threading has grown so quickly that many people may wonder about its origins and benefits. Eyebrow threading is an ancient art that is believed to have developed in the Middle East. Threading was part of many different cultural rites of passage. Iranian women would have it done across their entire faces, removing all peach fuzz. Their eyebrows would also be shaped, giving them a precise look. These procedures were generally reserved for women that were about to be married or reach adulthood. In North America, threading has become more commonplace in recent years -- growing from a relatively obscure grooming technique to one popular in many salons. Threading has many advantages.

Popularity of eyebrow threading When handled by an experienced stylist, eyebrow threading is essentially painless and less damaging to the skin than waxing, which tends to pull at the delicate area around the eye. Waxes may cause skin irritation or even burn if improperly applied. Threading removes these risks and is done more slowly to achieve precise results. Because threading targets only a few hairs at a time, it’s less likely to cause unsightly red patches of irritated skin, which can happen after waxing. Threading is also hygienic because nothing but clean strands of the cotton come in contact with the face. Those with sensitive or aging skin find threading is less likely than waxing to cause wrinkles or skin pulling. Threading is poised to become one of the most popular methods of facial hair removal. Its inexpensive cost and few side effects draw women to it daily.

What to look for in outdoor furniture

O

utdoor entertaining areas have always been popular among homeowners. The ability to entertain friends and family or simply relax by yourself is something homeowners cherish, particularly during the warm weather seasons. Finding the right furniture to match your outdoor area, be it a deck, patio or poolside lounging area, is essential to making the most of this special area of the home. When shopping for outdoor furniture, consider the following.

Weight: Unlike furniture inside the home, outdoor furniture will be moved around quite frequently, such as to protect it from inclement weather or changing seasons. As a result, the weight of the furniture bears importance. While you don’t want furniture that’s too lightweight and will blow away any time a strong gust of wind comes along, it’s a good idea to choose furniture that isn’t too heavy. This makes it easier to move should a storm suddenly appear and it won’t require the entire household to help move the furniture into and out of the garage when inclement weather arrives.

Comfort: The whole idea behind an outdoor entertaining area is to have a relaxing place to spend time outside. So be sure to choose furniture that’s comfortable and can handle the elements. Metal furniture, for example, might be durable, but such furniture can also get very hot if out in the sun. Versatility: Many homeowners enjoy changing their home’s interior decor from time to time, and it can be just as enjoyable to do the same to a home’s exterior decor. That said, look for furniture that can be accented with a variety of accessories, so you can change the look of your outdoor entertaining area easily. Protection: Protecting exterior furniture from the elements should be a priority. When shopping for outdoor furniture, figure out if protective covering is available or if it will need to be custom made. The latter alternative can be quite expensive, so you might want to consider more generic furniture that comes with standard protective coverings to make it more affordable.

past few years and has created a buzz within the marketplace due to its unique qualities and characteristics. Quartz is virtually a maintenance-free countertop with dramatic depth. As a rule quartz material is composed of approximately 93% quartz and 7% pigments and epoxy resin. One of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz gives incredible strength and durability to your counters. Quartz is a nonporous surface and requires no sealing, polishing or reconditioning to maintain the lustre of your surface. Quartz is a beautiful surface that has caught the attention of homeowners and designers. These surfaces have been designed to be functional in virtually every room in your home, from kitchens to bathrooms and entertainment areas. Even though laminate has always been recognized as the price-conscious selection for countertops, laminate has come a long way in the past few years. In years gone by the colour selection for laminate was not comprised of deep colours, however today we see designs rich in colour and texture. With so many people gravitating to the look of natural stone, the laminate companies have done an incredible job recreating this look into surfaces. Many of the new colours are digital photographs of slabs of stone and then printed on paper; this provides an opulent look at a fraction of the cost. With many edge proďŹ les and integrated backsplashes to choose from, this low-maintenance countertop provides the ďŹ&#x201A;exibility and design elements needed for any home. Whatever your desire, selecting the right countertop allows you to conďŹ dently create the perfect space for your demanding standards and unique style. Article provided by Columbia Countertops.

ife is complicated enough, choosing a countertop does not need to be. With all the choices offered today, choosing a countertop can be a seemingly challenging task. No matter the material you select or the treasures you add to accent your design, all are combined to make a statement that deďŹ nes your essence and personality. When looking for countertops you need to deďŹ ne how your family uses the spaces they live in, and determine what material is the most functional for daily use. Each countertop surface offers a different texture and durability which needs to be tailored to your lifestyle. Selecting the desirable material for your home needs to meet everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taste, style and budget. Today there are many choices for countertops which include laminate, granite, quartz, marble, solid surface, soapstone, concrete, stainless steel, butcher block and tile. A popular choice for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s countertops is granite. Granite grew in popularity about 5 years ago and has not slowed down. Many people think granite is all the same, however there are many levels in price and quality. When choosing granite you want to ensure the slabs you select are consistent in colour and have no imperfections. Remember granite is a natural product and has a variation in colour and grain pattern, so selecting your slabs will allow you to ensure you are getting the look you want. With graniteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s porous nature, it is more susceptible to stains, so a sealer needs to be applied every 12-18 months depending on your level of use. Granite can be cold to touch, yet it presents a rich appearance that is guaranteed to provide a unique look in every home. Quartz has resurfaced in the

BOER Rhonda Lee (Gray) April 9, 1968 - April 10, 2012 After a long struggle with Lupus and a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rhonda. She will be missed by her husband and best friend of 19 years Martin, son Eric, parents Doug and Barb, grandmother Mildred; brothers Bill, Kyle and Rich; nieces and nephew, family and friends. Many thanks to all the medical staff at MMH, ARH, and VGH for all the care and great support. Luckily Rhonda was able to spend her last few days at home surrounded by those who loved her. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, please be generous with your local SPCA.

CALDER LORRAINE (Nee Bannister) Nov. 12, 1942 ~ April 15, 2012

After a brief battle with cancer, with family by her side, Lorraine started her new journey in life. Her memory will be cherished forever by her best friend and husband Casey (Ken), her daughters Carol MacDonald (Jamie), Sherri Rothwell, Karen Gartner (Jesse), Marlene Funk (Len), seven grandchildren, her sisters Jean Cummings and June Horne (Wayne), her nieces and nephews, as well as numerous friends. Lorraine was predeceased by her parents, Victor and Alberta Bannister. Lorraine was born in Sydney, NS. She married the love of her life, Casey and moved to Winnipeg, MB where she and Casey raised their family. In 1988 they moved to Abbotsford, BC where they have continued to live. She retired in 2005 but retirement didn’t last long. She spent the remainder of her years volunteering at Northview Community Church assisting in the kitchen and reception. Lorraine was most happy when she was serving others. We will miss Lorraine’s incredible humour, generosity and caring spirit. The family extends their heartfelt thanks to the Cascades Hospice Center. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 11:30 am at the Northview Community Church.

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Gladys (Delle) Zanatta. Gladys was born in Otter, BC. Her family moved to Vancouver when she was a small child. Her happy memories were growing up in a family of five active girls overseen by a gentle Italian father (Giovanni Stefani) and a strong Italian mother (Saretta Trevisiol Stefani). The neighborhood at Princess and Prior was their home from Benny’s Market, to Strathcona School, to Sacred Heart Church. She married her childhood sweetheart, Guilio Zanatta in 1939 and they had many happy years together. She worked as the bookkeeper in the family owned Forum Motors on Hastings and Slocan Streets. In 1958 they built a home at Deer Lake in Burnaby. That home was a source of great joy to Gladys. Unfortunately, Guilio passed away in 1968 and over the years she had the sad experience of also losing her four beloved sisters, Annie Zanatta - 1977, Angie McNeil - 1996, Mary Durante 2001 and Elma Pastro - 2007. In 2002 she moved to Abbotsford to live with her nephew, John and his wife Kathryn. She was surrounded by many nieces and nephews who fondly called her Aunty Day. She particularly enjoyed each new generation of babies and took great pleasure in family gatherings. Special thanks to her kind companions, Shirley, Amalia and Irene who were faithful in their devotion. She passed away peacefully on April 11, 2012 with family constantly at her side in her final days. A Prayer Service will be held on Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 4:00 pm at St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church, 33333 Mayfair Avenue, Abbotsford, BC. A Funeral Mass will be held on Monday, April 23, 2012 at 11:00 am at St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church. Donations may be made to BC Children’s Hospital.
