Waiting for fallout from teachers’ ‘drastic action’ Full effect of ban on all extracurricular activities not yet clear Vikki HOPES and Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Teachers, students, parents and administrators are trying to determine how certain activities, such as grad, will be affected following the provincial teachers’ vote to pull participation in all extracurricular activities. The BC Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) announced Friday that of the teachers who voted, 73 per cent were in favour of

a “resistance strategy” to oppose Bill 22, which prohibits them from striking and imposes a six-month cooling-off period. Teachers have been embroiled in a yearlong contract dispute with their employer, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association. Jeff Dunton, president of the Abbotsford District Teachers’ Association, said the vote was a difficult one, but teachers needed to take “drastic action.” He said volunteering for extracurricular

activities such as sports, drama productions and graduation ceremonies is not part of their job, although teachers have done it for years because they enjoy it. The vote is a statement to government that they have not been appreciated for their efforts, Dunton said. “Teachers are finally looking and saying they’re not fully respected, and they’ve been treated badly for a number of years, Continued on A3

and Bill 22 is only the tip of the iceberg.” He said teachers this week are immersed in completing second-term report cards – following an order by the Labour Relations Board that they must do so – and they have not had an opportunity to determine all the activities that constitute volunteer time. Not all teachers are complying with the BCTF directive. On the senior boys rugby scene, a number of teams in the Fraser Valley dropped out earlier in the year when teachers at individual schools voted to withdraw participation in extracurricular activities. But three local senior boys rugby programs – at Abbotsford Collegiate, Robert Bateman and Yale secondaries – forged ahead with teacher-led coaching staffs. All three are planning to continue on even after the province-wide BCTF vote. “I just feel like I made a commitment prior to this (vote) coming through to run the season with these boys, and I don’t want to let them down,” Abby Collegiate coach Sean McLaughlin said. “I’m sure that it will make some people unhappy, but at the same time, I have to do what I feel is right.” Yale coach Doug Primrose said that with rugby season approaching playoffs, it doesn’t make sense to pull the plug at

Bateman coach Dave Chambers said, “I don’t really want to get into politics with the sport.” The provincial senior boys

rugby championships are scheduled to run in Abbotsford, May 30 to June 2, and Primrose said that event will go ahead. But other students have felt the repercussions. Yale Secondary Grade 12 students Alissa Degianni and Marleau Brown both participate in soccer, rugby, and track and field. All those sports have

been cancelled. Both said they are worried their scholarship potential has been affected, with no opportunities for college or university scouts to see them compete. The two are also concerned that teachers are not taking part in graduation activities, but are hopeful parents and administrators will fill in the gap. “We have a huge grad class, so we’re hoping parents step up. We’d hate to lose it (grad),” Brown said. Kevin Godden, superintendent of the Abbotsford school district, said he is “very concerned” that Abbotsford’s rich traditions in sports and arts will be sullied by the job action. He feels graduation ceremonies are made more meaningful for students by the participation of teachers. But schools and parents will continue planning these events, and “make this year as special as we can,” he said. “I want the public to continue to have confidence in our school system, that we do the best we can for our kids.” Bud Loewen, president of the District Parents’ Advisory Council, said it’s too soon to tell how parents feel about the vote, but more feedback will come out as the weeks progress. “I think they might be in a shock right now a little bit,” he said.

Police seize fake brand-name makeup Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

A 26-year-old Vancouver man is under investigation for selling bogus brand-name makeup at the Abbotsford Flea Market on Sunday (April 15). Const. Ian MacDonald said if the fake MAC Cosmetics items had been legitimate, their value would have been about $10,000. The items were discovered as Abbotsford Police patrol division officers were walking through the flea market, which runs out of the Ag-Rec Building at Abbotsford Exhibition Park, at about 11:30 a.m. MacDonald said the officers spoke with a vendor selling MAC-labelled makeup and

examined the items, which were being sold at prices well below retail/store value. MacDonald said the officers seized the items to determine their authenticity after the man offered several inconsistent stories about how the product was obtained and failed to produce any receipts or paperwork. A MAC representative confirmed to police on Wednesday the seized products were fake. MacDonald said the suspect has been under investigation in other areas for running the same scam, but no charges have yet been laid against him. He said sham products of all kinds are usually manufactured overseas, such as Asia, “where labour is a lot cheaper and

A MAC Cosmetics representative said, in a statement issued

through the Abbotsford Police, that the company is concerned to hear about the incident and is working closely with police. “MAC has no control over merchandise that is sold at unauthorized accounts,” the rep stated.

The last public safety warning that the APD issued of this nature was in 2008 in relation to Jarrod, Jonathan and Jamie Bacon. Jonathan was killed in a drive-by shooting in Kelowna last summer. Last September, the RCMP’s gang task force issued a similar warning about the Duhre and Dhak groups, two prominent gangs in the Lower Mainland. One of the Duhre brothers, Sandip, was shot and killed in a targeted hit in a Vancouver restaurant in January. MacDonald said it is rare for police to take the step that they have in those cases.

DFO willing to change its rules Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

Farmers who protested the Department of Fisheries Oceans office in Vancouver on Tuesday were apparently heard, and can expect to see changes. “Fisheries and Oceans Canada wants to adopt a common-sense approach that focuses on the effective management of Canada’s fisheries and fish habitat,” said a spokesperson from Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield’s office through a press release issued

Thursday. Led by the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation, farmers protested DFO regulations and setbacks that they say takes productive land away from their farms. “Canadians have told us they find our rules indiscriminate, confusing and far-reaching and our government has been clear that we are looking at making much-needed changes to these policies,” said the DFO, in a response that was issued almost 48 hours after the protest. The DFO acknowledged that under

the current system, drainage ditches, culverts and irrigation channels are subject to the same rules as productive waterways that support fish and local fisheries. “Government resources are not limitless; it does not make sense to expend resources to evaluate areas where there is little to no productivity in the same way we evaluate areas where fish live, grow and reproduce,” said the release. “We want the rules to reflect the priorities of Canadians and focus on the protection and conservation of Canada’s fisheries.”

Crematorium issued compliance order Kevin MILLS

Abbotsford News

A local group attempting to establish a crematorium on Riverside Road has been issued a compliance

order from Consumer Protection BC. The order was issued to the Fraser River Community Crematorium Society on Jan. 30, and prevents

the group from accepting money for future funeral services. Both sides have been working to resolve the issues, which included the lack of a licence.

Tatiana ChabeauxSmith, manager of public relations at Consumer Protection BC, said it came to the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention that the local society may not have been complying with some aspects of the law. After opening an investigation, it was determined that compliance was needed in several areas including: T the requirement to be licensed as a funeral provider and a cemetery services operator;

T provide a price list to consumers for all goods and services; T provide a pre-need contract; T deposit all monies received for the future performance of funeral/cemetery services into a pre-need trust account. Chabeaux-Smith said in an email, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have completed the licensing process and are taking steps to comply with the other areas ... in the compliance order.â&#x20AC;? Satvir Gill, a volunteer member of the crematorium

society, said the group has been working hard to meet any outstanding requirements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now have our licence and will soon resolve the remaining issues,â&#x20AC;? he said. According to Gill, the investigation began after questions were raised regarding the society entering into pre-need (future services) contracts, which Gill said is not true. According to regulations, all pre-need contract money received must be

placed into trust to ensure it is protected and available when needed. Gill said the society has only accepted donations for the construction of the facility. However, the group allowed donors to allocate a portion of the money as a donation and a portion could be entered into a pre-need contract once the society was licensed. The donors will now be contacted and asked whether they want to turn the entire amount into a donation, have a portion of the money returned, or enter into a pre-need contract. The Fraser River Community C re m at o r i u m Society consists of several members of Abbotsfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indo-Canadian community. It was created because cremation is an important part of funeral ceremonies in the Sikh and Hindu religions and Abbotsford does not have a facility to accommodate the large processions with hundreds of guests. The proposed crematorium is a partnership of all of the Abbotsford Sikh temples, the Abbotsford Hindu temple and the Mission Sikh temple. A meeting will be scheduled in the coming weeks on the status of the crematorium project.

Fraser flood risk elevated due to snowpack Jeff Nagel

Black Press

There’s a higher risk of flooding on the lower Fraser River this year because of heavier-than-usual snowpacks across central and northern B.C. that have been slow to melt due to a cold spring. All the major tributary basins that feed the Fraser have above average snowpacks, and the entire watershed holds 31 per cent more snow than usual, according to the latest readings from B.C.’s River Forecast Centre. “That is about the fifth or sixth highest reading we’ve seen for the Fraser for this time of year,” said centre head Dave Campbell. “It’s something we see about once every 10 or 12 years.” He said this is the second straight year of a La Nina weather pattern, which tends to cause cool and wet weather in late winter and spring, bolstering snowpacks.

A7

Healthy Living... Do you know about your hearing health?

Some parts of the watershed are actually at record snow levels – the Nechako is 65 per cent above normal and the upper Fraser basin is 52 per cent higher than usual. Those two basins supply a third of the flow that comes to the lower Fraser Valley. Whether high water actually threatens to top Fraser River dikes will depend heavily on spring weather patterns in May and June and how quickly all that snow upcountry melts and flows downstream. Campbell said a worst case scenario would be continued cool weather for several weeks followed by a heat wave, especially if heavy rains are added to the mix. The best scenario would be seasonal temperatures and dry weather for the rest of the spring. So far, he said, the long-term forecasts suggest B.C. is in for dry but hotter than normal conditions later in the spring.

Sad time for students These are not good times for those teachers who dedicate their time to sports teams, drama clubs and other important extracurricular school activites. It’s worse still, for the students who devote themselves to these pursuits, and in them, find true enjoyment and even scholastic benefit such as scholarships. Thanks to the BC Teachers’ Federation and its members who gave their voting support last week, the remainder of this school year is now a washout for thousands of young athletes and a wide variety of school clubs. After last week’s vote in support of the withdrawal of all extracurricular activities by teachers, even high school graduation and prom activities are in question. Parents may be able to step up and save the latter, without the participation of teachers.

We sincerely hope so, since it would be an immense travesty if some students had one of the most important events of their public education experience taken from them by a union intent on twisting the government’s will to its agenda. The BCTF refrain that “it’s about the kids” rings hollow with this latest manoeuver, which just punishes kids, as well as the teachers who made a commitment to those young people at the start of the school year. Not enough can be said about the courageous few – including several in Abbotsford – who are willing to keep running their extracurricular activities despite the vote. Every teacher should have that choice, without pressure from union or colleagues. After all, they’re volunteering, aren’t they?

Of mice, men and criminal acts Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand “Ackkkkkk!” screeched the keeper of the kitchen. “There’s mouse (insert colloquial term for excrement here) on the counter!” Upon inspection I, on the other hand, would have dismissed the little turds as errant coffee grounds from the maker nearby. Off to the basement to locate the collection of traps. Sure enough, next morning two of the little blighters had expired shortly after sampling shaved almond slices infused with peanut butter placed on the trap triggers. Works every time! Surprising was that, after going all winter without mice invading the house, they’d show up in the spring. Then again, there have been some remarkable non-seasonal events on Sumas Mountain recently. Like Friday night for instance. That clatter outside certainly wasn’t Santa and his eight reindeer on the roof, but Air One lighting the way for a police raid on

a neighbouring house. Unfortunately, I wasn’t home when the cavalry arrived in the area, so I missed a lot of the excitement that armoured vehicles and armed tactical units engender. I’ll bet, however, that when flash-bangs (commonly called stun grenades) were tossed into the outbuildings to ensure submissive compliance of anyone inside, my horses were as equally ‘defecatory’ as the mice when the devices, combined with the night-time helicopter noise, were detonated. By the time I arrived home, the horses only seemed intrigued by all the flashing lights as the cops kept mountain roads closed for a few hours while the raid progressed. And other than a flurry of phone calls next morning from other neighbours requesting “details,” of which I was basically lacking, tranquility has been, at least for now, restored. What has not yet been restored is the rights of ownership of the trees on private property. The bylaw that requires owners to obtain the city’s permission to prune or cut down your own trees is still in effect, and still carries punitive costs. Yet, in the news last week was a fellow who, somewhere “in the Old Clayburn

area,” in essence, stole a large maple tree by cutting it down on private or public land for its exotic grain. Certain maples contain “curly” or figured wood which is used to make attractive wooden instruments such as violins and guitars. Who knew Stradivarius and Gibson would spawn ecoterrorism!

Until that bylaw is fully repealed ... I’ll continue to harangue the city about it. The guy was caught cutting down someone else’s tree, was charged and eventually a week or so ago fined $500 in provincial court. Which suggests, according to the City of Abbotsford, crime pays because if you cut down your own tree, the city will levy upwards of $546 for every foot of trunk diameter, plus make you pay to plant three more trees … a cost upwards of $1,500! I’ve harped on this before, but until that

bylaw is fully repealed, not simply relaxed or rewritten, I’ll continue to harangue the city about it. It is an infringement of our rights of ownership and is a blatant cashgrab. To develop land for housing, schools, subdivision streets, churches, etc., trees must come down. And for all those projects, there are already other bylaws in place that require some sort of reforestation or city recompense before they are approved. Someone, it appears, has forgotten that Abbotsford’s theme is “City in the Country.” And if you are wondering whether I want to clear-cut my property – almost all the trees (far more than when I acquired the land a quarter-century ago) were planted by me. In fact, on my property, and on virtually all neighbouring properties, there are far more trees today than there were 25 years ago. So let this be a lesson. If you want to cut down a tree in Abbotsford, steal someone else’s . . . it’s far cheaper than taking a chainsaw to one of your own. Of course, if you stole other stuff as well, you might trigger the kind of police response that tied up my neighbourhood Friday night, and that might be unpleasant. markrushton@abbynews.com

Pension hypocrisy

Open letter to Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development. I received your silly letter regarding the OAS, and, being already retired, I guess you thought it was just something I would dump in the trash. Well, you got it wrong and you will find that, as more people reach retirement age, they will make sure to hold your government responsible. Your credibility to dabble in this particular program is, if possible, below zero. You propose to make cosmetic changes only to your own

gold plated pension – and they will still be gold plated after the miniscule changes proposed. You are feathering your own nests very well, in a way you would never grant to the people who work for you and make you look good to the public. You are total idiots if you think any really intelligent, informed persons will swallow your bafflegab. I had to work for 35 years and contribute 7.5 per cent of my gross pay for that time to get the pension I have now. On paper, the government says it was kicking in an

equivalent amount. Well, as you know, or should know, at simple bank interest on my contributions over that time, I will be fully funding my own pension unless I live past the age of 78. You, on the other hand, will use my tax dollars to pay Gilles Duceppe, a man who wants to split up Canada, a whopping $140,000 a year for his life. You are a pack of self-serving idiots. If you ever truly want the public to support you, the first step would be to accept the pension you enforce on public servants. But, then again, you

would never do that, as it would mean you might actually have to work properly for your living. Failures in life become lawyers. Failed or lazy lawyers, plus anyone with the gift of gab become politicians. You fool no one and one day, the populace will revolt. Enjoy it while you can. Robert A. Klassen

Tough Decision, yet a Wise Choice! Death is a fact of life. When we die, someone will be responsible for our final wishes. It is not an easy task and most people struggle with the difficult decision making. Fortunately, we have the solution for you and your loved ones. Prearranging your own funeral is a wise and responsible decision. Planning ahead gives you and your family peace of mind, and most importantly, will make things easier for loved ones in their time of grief. By prearranging your funeral you can choose the type of service you want at a cost you can afford. On your death, your family does not have to worry about second-guessing your wishes or paying for a funeral at an emotional time everything is taken care of. At Dignity Memorial we work with you to plan a service filled with personalized details. From time-honoured traditions to personal photographs, favourite readings and special songs, you can design the service to be a unique reflection of your life. We would like to introduce two new products that can help alleviate the financial burden of a funeral. For example, prearranging for someone age 50 years can cost as little as $16 per month. For someone age 60 years it can cost as little as $19 per month. These plans are affordable and they will relieve the financial burden on the family while freezing escalating funeral costs. To help you begin, we are offering a complimentary Dignity Memorial Personal Planning Guide. In addition, we will extend a 12% savings on the HST for entrusting us with your funeral prearrangements. This will be in effect until May 30, 2012. To receive a copy of the guide please contact a Dignity Memorial provider listed below.

letters Regional district dilemma I am a little confused at Mayor Banmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willingness to look at forming a new regional district with Langley and possibly leaving the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD). Is he forgetting that one of the reasons he was elected was his opposition to leaving the FVRD? Langley may find it even harder and expensive to leave Metro, maybe more than for Abbotsford to leave the FVRD. On the other hand, could Langley be contemplating joining the FVRD,

LFL players should be paid Much has been written about the moral issues relating to the emerging Lingerie Football League. I shall not join that debate but I do raise an ethical issue which has been mostly

ignored. I am greatly troubled by the fact, as widely reported, that league owner, Mitchell Mortaza, will not be paying the athletic young ladies any salary for playing.

or is it just two municipalities trying to shirk contractual responsibilities entered into in good faith a long time ago? Either way, it could all end up being penny wise and pound foolish.

others on our turf. According to press reports, owner Mortaza noted that following a recent tryout, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the participants said they had fun, and enjoyed the camaraderie and workout.â&#x20AC;? He also noted that instead of a salary â&#x20AC;&#x153;theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll receive plenty of profile and media attention.â&#x20AC;? Mr. Mortaza, given that you think media exposure and fun are adequate substitutes for income, I challenge you to practise what you preach. As a responsible entrepreneur, you should pay each of your 20 athletes at least $1,500 per game. For now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let the fun, profile, and camaraderie be payment for the practice sessions. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real bargain for you. Since you obviously do not consider payment for work to be important, be grateful for your own camaraderie, fun and extensive media exposure. You might consider also paying yourself $1,500 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but no more. The rest of the revenue, after AESC rental and related costs have been paid, should be contributed, in equal amounts, to the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Division, Abbotsford Rugby Football Club and the Mennonite Central Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Program, both of which advance fair treatment for women, a cause you surely support! Mr. Mortaza, if you accept my carefully weighed and wise counsel, I promise to mention your philanthropic qualities to at least 10 friends and to write a letter of commendation to this newspaper. And 20 athletes will be grateful for the financial coverage. John H. Redekop

A Chorus Line coming to Abby A Chorus Line, one of Broadway’s most celebrated musicals, is set to perform at the Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre on Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m. The story takes place in an empty theatre, on a bare stage, as casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. For 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It’s what they’ve worked for – with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It’s the one opportunity to do what they’ve always dreamed – to have the chance to dance. A Chorus Line has won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for drama. “We are thrilled that such a decorated Broadway musical is coming to Abbotsford this fall,” said Global Spectrum’s Jason Blumenfeld, general manager of the AESC. Tickets for the Abbotsford show go on sale on April 27 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased online at www.abbotsfordcentre.ca, by telephone at 1-866-977-2372 or in person at the AESC box office, Abbotsford Recreation Centre, Matsqui Recreation Centre and Whatcom Wine & Spirits in Abbotsford.

Saturday will bring a night of Mexican culture.

Mexican dance

A trio of Abbotsford women of Mexican heritage are putting on a Cinco de Mayo celebration in Abbotsford this month. On April 28, a Mexican chef will come to the Abbotsford Banquet Centre to prepare a buffet of traditional Mexican fare. Dinner will be followed by an evening of Latin dancing, and a mariachi band will perform. The dancing will go until midnight. Rita Carrington, Pilar Burder and Ofelia Meier, with help from Alvaro Cascante of Colombia, are the organizers. They have formed the group Mexico En La Piel (Mexico in our skin), and they plan to offer the proceeds of the event to charity, and make it an annual happening. Organizers say sales have been brisk, and people from virtually every Latin country are being drawn to the event. There will be 300 tickets sold in advance. Tickets are $35, and are available by calling Ofelia at 604-615-2059. “We want to let people know what Mexican culture really looks like,” said Burder.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Abbotsford is about $1 million away from reaching the $13-million goal for its capital campaign. Director of development Laurie Shopland said staff have been thrilled with the “overwhelming support” of the community in raising the funds to build the facility, located on Marshall Road adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Shopland said she is excited about working with the community to raise money for ongoing costs to run the hospice, which is due to be completed in fall 2013. About 73 per cent of operating costs for the Vancouver site, which opened in 1995, are fundraised, she added. Canuck Place in Abbotsford was initially slated to open near the end of this year, but

From A13

Saturday, October 20, 2012, 6 PM

some changes in the construction plans to allow the addition of an underground parking area pushed back that date. The parking area is now under construction in the first phase of building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That has allowed the whole campus to have a real world-class look and feel to it,â&#x20AC;? Shopland said. Canuck Place is one of three projects comprising the Dave Lede Campus of Care. It offers programs and services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including end-of-life care â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for children 19 years old and under with progressive, life-threatening illnesses. The 30,000-square-foot Abbotsford facility will include 10 beds and five family suites. Operations will be phased in over three to five years, beginning with a consultation team, outpatient clinic and support groups.

Playoff pressure paralyzes many athletes, but Krys Kolanos seems to thrive on it. The Abbotsford Heat forward continued his torrid scoring pace as the Heat raced out to a 2-0 lead over the Milwaukee Admirals in their best-of-five first round playoff series. Kolanos racked up two goals and two assists in a 6-2 victory on Friday at Milwaukee’s Bradley Center, and he scored two more in Sunday’s 4-2 win. The Heat return home with three chances to eliminate the Admirals at the Abbotsford Entertainment Centre, beginning with Wednesday’s Game 3 (7 p.m. start). Games Continued on A17

Dorey named tournament MVP

From A15

“I’m happy for our city and all of our fans who have done so much for us over the years, and all of our volunteers who have made this possible. It’s an unbelievable thing, and I’m so happy.” The Pilots dominated from the opening faceoff on Sunday, as goals by Riley Lamb, Travis Grewal and Kevin Lourens staked them to a 3-0 lead after one period. Abbotsford blueliner Scott Rae-Douglas made it 4-0 early in the second, before Nathan Spina got Thunder Bay on the board with a power-play goal. But it was all Pilots from there. Lamb would rack up three more goals, and Justin Dorey potted two of his own as Abbotsford cruised to the title. Goalie Riley Parker turned aside 22 of 23 Northern Hawks shots in the victory. When the dust had settled, Lamb and Dorey had each registered an eye-popping seven points – Lamb with four goals and three assists, and Dorey with two goals and five helpers. Dorey picked up MVP honours after leading the tournament in scoring with 10 goals and 11 assists in six games. “My linemates, I couldn’t have done it without them,” said Dorey, giving credit to fellow 20-year-olds Lamb and Lourens. “We were just able to find each other out there. We talked amongst ourselves beforehand and decided we wanted this more than anything, and we went out there and we did it. “It was our last game

(of junior eligibility), and we wanted to make it a memorable one.” The Pilots certainly peaked at the right time – coming off a dramatic doubleovertime win over the Victoria Cougars at the Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial championship, they outscored their opponents 35-6 over the course of five victories at the Western Canadians. Their lone misstep at the Keystone Cup came at the end of the round robin, when they dropped an 8-1 decision to the Whitecourt Wolverines on S at u rd ay evening. But that game was meaningless to the Pilots since they’d already clinched a spot in the final; moreover, it was their second game of the day, and head coach Jim Cowden rested his stars. “The whole weekend, we played well,” Cowden said. “Our skill took over. We were probably the most skilled team, and our 20-year-olds were fantastic. “The team was ready to go. They motivated themselves, and you could tell they were ready from the opening puck-drop.” Pilots captain Brett Kolins said his team’s dominant performance at the Keystone Cup was simply a carryover of the momentum they built up at the Cyclone Taylor Cup. “We’d been plugging away at provincials last week, and we came here and nothing changed,” he analyzed. “We came to the rink, came prepared, and got it done. “We stuck together as a team through thick and thin, and it feels unbelievable.”

Heat aim to sweep Admirals at home From A15

4 and 5, if necessary, would go on Friday and Saturday. Kolanos has been absurdly hot over his last 10 games, registering 15 goals and nine assists for 24 points. “Krys is a money player,” Heat coach Troy Ward analyzed. “The big thing about Krys versus a lot of guys at this level is, you’ll find a lot of guys aren’t sure they want to be out there when things are kind of hairy. But Krys always wants to be out there.” The Heat got off to a nervous start in Friday’s opener, as the Admirals built a 2-1 lead in the first period. Milwaukee got goals from Mark Van Guilder

Heat winger Jon Rheault gets around Milwaukee defenceman Teemu Laakso during Game 1. and Jani Lajunen, while Dustin Sylvester replied for Abbotsford. The Heat took over in the middle frame, as two goals from Greg Nemisz and one by Kolanos staked the

visitors to a 4-2 lead. In the third, tallies by Jon Rheault and Kolanos (into an empty net) rounded out the scoring. On Sunday, the Heat twice battled back

from one-goal deficits. Milwaukee’s Brodie Dupont and Chris Mueller gave the hosts the lead on two occasions, but Kolanos and Ben Walter responded to level the score. Kolanos notched the game-winner early in the third, and Rheault’s empty-netter with 1:04 left sealed the deal. Danny Taylor started both games between the pipes, and after allowing a pair of questionable goals in the first period of Game 1, he calmed down and delivered steady performances. He made 28 saves on Sunday and was named the game’s second star. For more coverage, visit abbynews.com

GILLBERG, Robert G. December 12th, 1939 April 13th, 2012 After a short and courageous battle with cancer, Robert passed away at the home he loved and surrounded by the family that loved him. Robbie was born with a zest for life. He described his childhood in the Fraser Valley as “idyllic”. He was able to roam, explore and just enjoy being a child. After graduation from Abbotsford Senior High he joined BC Hydro and remained with them until transferring to the Gas Division. He spent his working life in the Abbotsford area and Powell River - where he started his family - then back to the Fraser Valley until retirement. Robert’s passions were family and sports (especially hockey), and most often they intersected. He was at every event for his children and for his grandsons, being supportive and helpful. You could always hear him cheering avidly from the stands. He loved life - always the first at any gathering and the last to leave, willing to try new things and go new places, always there with help and advice. Robert was the eldest child of Herbert & Elsie Gillberg with two sisters Donna and Linda. He was predeceased by his father Herbert and is survived by his loving companion Verna, his mother Elsie and his daughter Lisa (Terry) Mellett and grandson Scott, his son Matthew (Gina) Gillberg and his grandsons Ryan and Adam, sister Donna (Ernie) Morrelli and nephew Bradley and sister Linda (Milt) Pearson and his nephew Marty (Jennie) Pearson and niece Mindy (Vic) Gratwicke. Family and friends are invited to celebrate his life. A life filled with passion and joy. Saturday, May 5th, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm at his home in Parksville, 1417 Gabriola Drive (Craig Bay). In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Society would be appreciated. YATES FUNERAL SERVICE & CREMATORIUM (1-877-264-3848) in care of arrangements.
