The Edmonton man accused of killing three armoured guards and critically injuring another has been held in custody at the Langley RCMP detachment since his arrest on Saturday at the Aldergrove border crossing, less than 10 kilometres west of the Abbotsford boundary. Travis Baumgartner, 21, is accused of shooting four of his co-workers who were putting cash into an ATM machine at the University of Alberta in Edmonton on Friday. Baumgartner appeared before a justice on Sunday charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder and four counts of robbery with a firearm. An intensive manhunt had been underway since Edmonton Police announced he was the prime suspect in the murders that took place Friday. In that time, Baumgartner drove to B.C. and was arrested Saturday evening after attemptContinued on A3

ing to cross the border into the U.S. at the Aldergrove/Lynden, Wash. crossing. Edmonton Police arrived in Langley on Sunday morning to do a thorough search of Baumgartner’s truck and to interview him. “Mr. Baumgartner will be remanded in custody for six days. He has appeared before a justice of the peace and Edmonton investigators are still here,” confirmed Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks on Monday. Baumgartner apparently had $330,000 cash

with him when he was arrested. However, investigators were unable to locate Baumgartner’s firearm or body armour. U.S. Customs and Border Protection were alerted to Baumgartner when the licence plate reader found that the plate on his truck, which was his mother’s plate, didn’t match the truck ownership. One woman, who was with her young children at the border crossing at the time, said the scene of his arrest was “scary.” In a message via

the Abbotsford News’ Facebook page, Candace Litke said six border guards had their guns drawn on him, telling him to get out of his pick-up. He apparently lay down on the ground in a puddle in his T-shirt and jeans. He was cuffed and taken away. He had his own driver’s licence with him but no passport, said border guards. His mother had pleaded with him to turn himself in after the murders on Friday but clearly Baumgartner was driving straight through to the border.

Comfort Class - Style Selection

News of Baumgartner’s arrest has brought some level of solace and relief to the G4S armoured guard family, still in a state of shock on the heels of Friday’s shootings. “We applaud the dedication of the Edmonton Police Service, and other law enforcement agencies in apprehending Travis Baumgartner today,” said Robin Steinberg of G4S Cash Solutions (Canada). “Our thoughts remain with the families and friends of the victims and also with the Baumgartner family.”

More than 2,000 graduate from UFV There were Van Meers and Dhaliwals, Malloways and Froeses, and Kims and MacDonalds in the spotlight on June 14 and 15 as new graduates of the University of the Fraser Valley crossed the stage at three convocation ceremonies at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre adjacent to the Abbotsord campus. Approximately 2,100 students earned credentials at UFV this year, and at least half of them attended ceremonies for their moment of glory as friends and family from across the Fraser Valley and beyond cheered them on from the stands. UFV president Mark Evered told the graduates that convocation marks the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another. “I know you faced many challenges in your studies and in your lives outside of classes. I know about your sacrifices and the talent and effort you needed to succeed.

including co-dominant branches, which is when a tree has two large branches emerging from the same point. This can lead to splitting. A crew cut the trees down and a logging truck picked up the wood to be taken to a nearby pulp mill. Rick Daykin, Abbotsford’s manager of parks services, said the trees were a danger because they were located close to three target areas – a walking path, the picnic shelter and playground, and a new labyrinth.

Three large cottonwood trees were taken down by the City of Abbotsford on Thursday affternoon. The trees, which were located in Mill Lake Park, close to Bevan Avenue, were deemed as potential hazards and removed as a safety precaution.

33310 South Fraser Way 604.853.6300

A quick-thinking store owner prevented two robbers from making off with any cash or goods on Monday morning in Abbotsford. But before they fled, one of the culprits deployed bear spray. Const. Ian MacDonald said the incident occurred at about 9:15 a.m. at a convenience store in the 31700 block of South Fraser Way. One man, described as about 5’2”, made his way into the store, while the other, about 6’2”, remained at the entrance as a look-out, inadvertently causing the store’s door chime to sound. The owner asked the taller man to either come all the way into the store or to leave, just as the other suspect pulled out a can of bear spray and said they were robbing the store. The owner immediately crouched down behind the counter, grabbed the phone and called 911. The shorter man then deployed the bear spray, and the men fled without taking anything. MacDonald credited the man’s quick actions with scaring off the thieves. He said the bear spray was thick in the air when officers arrived, but it was cleared with ventilation. The store owner did not see whether the men got away on foot or in a vehicle. They were both wearing dark clothing, and are described as possibly being South Asian. Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-8595225.

Roadside surveys are set to begin around B.C. this month to continue a research project that tests for marijuana, cocaine and other drugs as well as alcohol use by drivers. The B.C. government is spending up to $250,000 for the seventh survey of its kind in the province, part of a national program run by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. Previous surveys have shown that in random samples, about 10 per cent of drivers test positive for alcohol and seven to eight per cent have a detectable level of drugs in their systems. This year’s survey is being done in the same communities as the last one in 2010: Vancouver, Saanich, Abbotsford, Prince George and Kelowna. The roadside surveys are supervised by police and use hand-held breathalyzers, but they are for information only and won’t result in charges or suspensions. Drivers are asked to voluntarily and confidentially answer questions, provide a breath sample and also a saliva sample using a plastic stick with an absorbent pad on the end. Saliva samples are sent for lab analysis to detect marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other opiates, amphetamines and common sedatives. The test doesn’t determine if the driver was impaired by drugs, but only if there is a level detectable by the lab test. Ottawa passed legislation in 2008 to give police authority to demand physical sobriety tests and collect blood, urine or saliva samples for drug testing, but no roadside test or legal limits currently exist for drug impairment. B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said police do have options. “Police can issue a 24-hour prohibition at the roadside if they suspect drug impairment,” Bond said. “They can also take the driver into custody, so trained, certified police officers can conduct a very accurate drug recognition and evaluation exam and ask for blood tests to support Criminal Code charges.” Of the 2,480 vehicles selected for testing in 2010, 86 per cent of drivers provided a breath sample and 71 per cent agreed to give a sample of oral fluid.

‘Experience’ can wait The provincial government continues to throw millions of dollars towards Experience the Fraser, a plan to link existing parks and trails along both sides of the river from Vancouver to Hope. Most of the money, $2.5 million initially, went towards developing a concept plan – mapping out the hiking and biking trail links. But because of private property – some of it occupied by industrial businesses, such as saw mills, and even more of it being native land – the proposed trail has to go around them, for now. While connected by a line on a map, the trail in some areas would consist only of a road shoulder and some signs indicating the route. So it’s not really one, long connected trail, but a series of independent existing ones. Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes suggests a small park fee be added to municipal taxes to purchase private riverfront property if or when

it becomes available, to expand the route and fill in the gaps. It’s a nice idea, but a costly one. And would such a trail, if completed, really attract tourists? Where’s the economic return if they’re just bypassing through towns? Remember the Trans Canada Trail? Who uses it? Who cares? Fraser Valley residents have a plethora of trails they use in abundance already – and some make up part of the Trans Canada Trail and Experience the Fraser. Metro Vancouver says little money is currently available for pursuing the Experience trail system, which would require many, many millions to complete. In the present economic climate, this has to be a lower priority. Keep investing modestly in regional parks development and maintenance. Experience the Fraser can wait. – Black Press

The ‘pain’ of doing your part Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand There are things that, as they say, “come with the territory,” like fighting city hall, dealing with moles, mowing the lawn and attending children’s dance recitals. The latter, being the grandparent of five girls, is now firmly in my territory. Not that I didn’t attend the occasional display of dance 30 or so years ago, but with my growing flock of grandkids these events are coming up frequently. Such was the case Friday afternoon, in a darkened theatre in Chilliwack, when I watched 21 “performances” of children ranging in age from two to six. The presenters/instructors of the show had thoughtfully created a fastpaced event that for a non-appreciator of tiny-tots terpsichore considerably lessened the pain.

And so it took just a little more than an hour for me and a couple of hundred other parents, grandparents and brothers and sisters, to do our dutiful cheering and clapping whenever our own, and all the others, graced the stage. I must admit, there were humourous moments such as when the really little ones simply stood still staring at the audience, looking for relatives. And when they really got into their performances and began running all over the place while the rest of the group hopped up and down to the music. With all the fancy makeup and costumes, actually identifying my granddaughters was a challenge, assisted only by the fact that their names were in the program for that particular dance number. For all the dutiful attendance of those cheering on their little shining stars, I will say this: it was a wonderful event for the kids. Every one of them appeared to be enjoying themselves immensely, and I know from my two performers that they were thrilled with the family

presence there to watch them. And that made it all worthwhile, to see the sparkle in their eyes and the joy on their faces that your support gave them. The good thing about dance recitals is that they are the culmination of a

Wouldn’t that be nice in dealings with the city ... only having to tackle them once an annum, and only then at your leisure. winter/spring series of lessons. In other words, this is the finale ... I won’t have to attend another for an entire year. Wouldn’t that be nice in dealings with the city ... only having to tackle them once an annum, and only then at your leisure. Unfortunately, bizarre issues seem

to continually emanate from city hall, requiring diligence and defence on the part of the taxpayer. I’m willing to bet Mayor Banman never expected his first six months of office would be dedicated to dealing with so many areas of disconnect. But to give him due credit, it’s encouraging to see he is willing to step outside the Ivory Tower to reconcile concerns by participating in town hall meetings in various areas of the community. These less-formal-than-councilchamber sessions will allow people to express thoughts and concerns relating to their particular area or neighbourhood, and should provide valuable opinion on which to base council decisions that will affect the entire city. My only suggestion, Mr. Mayor, is that like dance recitals, you hold these meetings once a year. You and your fellow councillors will gain a better understanding of the concerns of residents and, like the children in the dance show, taxpayers will appreciate your attendance. markrushton@abbynews.com

Safeguarding community Helping people out of addiction is one thing; failing to take seriously the very real consequences of rejecting harm reduction based on either mandate or ideology is quite another. Circumventing the transmission of communicable disease, as well as avoiding associated health care costs and, ultimately, any societal impacts thereof, (via a publicly funded needle exchange) is not only, comparatively speaking, sound public policy, it is a bargain in the long term as it is essential to the well-being of all within the community and beyond. Even if zero tolerance approaches do represent the national drug strategy, it does not confer upon the federal government any entitlement or imperative liable to put the

nation’s health and well-being at risk. Needle exchange programs make available, to the addict, options that zero tolerance approaches won’t/don’t. Encouraging hygienic practice among addicts, as well as the humane treatment thereof, is not mollycoddling addicts; it recalls demonstrated hallmark traits once synonymous with Canadian standards. Harm reduction goes to safeguarding both the community and the addict whereas the zero tolerance approach fails to consider the wider societal implications of the consequences of that which is encouraged by the zero tolerance set. Wayne Phillips

Just paying your fair share (News columnist) Mr. Rushton, you promoted the City of Abbotsford takeover, and you spoke at public meetings about our obligation to pay our fair share to join this great place. People like you and John Les were instrumental in encouraging Area H to accept this merger as a logical progression of the area. You did not want a

vote on this because you knew it would not pass. You will note there were really no big specific promises from the city about what they would give us when we joined the fold. They were big on vagueness. Other than a slightly larger police presence and the garbage pickup that you pay for, there is no difference.

You will, at some future date, be able to develop your property as a subdivision which you could never do with the Fraser Valley Regional District. I’m sure this was always a prime motivator of yours for encouraging the takeover. Is the ditch cleaning a bone-headed bureaucratic idea? Of course. But you of all people

should never complain. You wanted Abbotsford – you got it. You had small bureaucracy, you had small taxes. Now you have mega-bureaucracy, you have mega -taxes. You get the idea. Take heart when paying your taxes this July – you are just paying your fair share.

This just goes to show the state of mismanagement with much our city hall staff; in particular the engineering department. There seems to be little to no thought on how our tax dollars are spent.

Abby foundation awards $212,000 Abbotsford Community Foundation has allocated over $212,000 in grants from the Abbotsford Agricultural Enhancement Fund (AAEF) established last year by the City of Abbotsford. The city was granted permission to exclude lands from the Agricultural Land Reserve for industrial development. As part of this, the city made a commitment to ensure there would be a net benefit to agriculture. “The Foundation’s AAEF Grants Committee developed criteria that focused on attracting projects that would enhance the agricultural industry in Abbotsford through education and advocacy, in order to increase awareness about the contribution that agriculture makes to our economy, community, families and health,” said Susan McAlevy, executive director of the Foundation. The 2012 AAEF grants include: Q $34,500 to the BC Chicken Growers Association for production of a Poultry in Motion video. Q $7,500 to the Fraser Valley Strawberry Growers Association for a web-based media project to inform consumers and increase strawberry consumption by an estimated 10 per cent. Q $10,000 to the Raspberry Industry Development Council for a social media program. Q $12,000 to the Abbotsford Soil Conservation Association for Abbotsford Farm Fest Day, to be held on the weekend of the Berrybeat Festival. Q $10,000 to the MSA Pioneers and MSA Museum/MSA Pioneers Association for printing “A History of the Pioneer Farming Families of Abbotsford.” Q $7,200 to the Abbotsford Community Garden Society to build a series of raised beds, ensuring the Ag in the classroom program can be offered. Q $50,000 to Bakerview EcoDairy for an education with Science World. Q $25,000 to the Abbotsford Farm and Country Market to reposition and rebrand the event. Q $39,250 to the University of the Fraser Valley for the Pacific Berry Research Centre. Q $9,975 for Ag at Agrifair, which provides education on horticulture, floriculture, viticulture (wine-making) and apiculture (bee keeping). Q $7,350 to the BC 4-H Club for the Agri-Career Quest program.

Stepping into university for the first time can be scary, and not just for the students. To make the experience a little less stressful for all parties involved, UFV is offering two orientations designed especially for the parents and families of new students. “As students transition to university they often experience challenges that may overwhelm or confuse them,” explains Jill Harrison, UFV student life manager. “By partnering with parents and family members, we are able to offer a unique, student-centred support system that enables students to thrive.” There are two orientations this year aimed especially at parents and the families — one in the new building at the Chilliwack campus in Canada Education Park, and one at the Abbotsford campus. “Attending one of our family orientation sessions will provide family members with a glimpse into the student experience,” Harrison explains.

UFV recognizes top performances Donna Alary is the first to admit that it took longer than she expected to finish her master’s degree. She started the Master of Arts in Criminal Justice with the first-ever group, or cohort, to enrol in the program at

the University of the Fraser Valley in 2005. She completed the nine courses required with the rest of her cohort within the two-year time frame, but when it came to writing the major paper, “life,” as she puts it, “got in the

way.” Now, seven years later, she has finished the required paper, the capstone to the degree. She graduated on June 15, at the top of the class, winning the Governor General’s gold medal for top academic perfor-

mance at the master’s degree level, with an almost perfect 4.25 grade-point-average. Alary chose to focus on something very connected to her career when completing her master’s thesis. She looked at the academic perfor-

mance of criminal justice majors at UFV as compared to non-crim majors. “Criminal justice education is a field that is high in demand and really growing across North America. Despite this growth, there is a general

perception that crim is not as rigorous a field of study as more traditional fields, and that it attracts students who may not do as well as those in other disciplines,” she says. In her study, Alary looked at the academ-

This annual award recognizes not only the classroom aspect of teaching, but the behind-the-scenes work that is easy to overlook. Professors spend countless hours compiling materials and constructing lesson plans both before and after lectures — not to mention the time they spend answering emails, holding office hours and keeping up with the latest developments in their field.

For his collaborative approach to research and his guidance of UFV students, Lian has been awarded the inaugural Research Excellence award at UFV. While the recognition is nice for Lian, he says he’s just doing something he loves. “I get an incredible amount of joy out doing research and making discoveries,” he says. “One of my colleagues and I were joking that we’re still like little kids.

Rocky’s road leads to UFV Former Bearcats athletic director to take helm of crosstown Cascades Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

After a national search for a new athletic director that lasted nearly nine months, the University of the Fraser Valley ended up finding its man just across town. Rocky Olfert, the erstwhile athletic director at Columbia Bible College, has been hired to fill the same role at UFV. It amounts to a promotion for Olfert – the CBC Bearcats teams play in the PacWest collegiate conference, while four of UFV’s eight teams are members of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS), the nation’s top university league. Still, Olfert said he’s making the move with mixed emotions. “I’ve really been blessed with some great years at CBC, but from a careers

perspective, I was looking for a new challenge,” said Olfert, whose two stints at CBC add up to a decade. “When this (UFV job) came open, I thought it would provide me with those new challenges and opportunities, and allow me to expand my skill set. I just think there’s so much potential at UFV.” If it’s a challenge Olfert desires, he’ll get that in spades at UFV, where the athletic department is coming off a tumultuous year. In mid-October, it came to light that the Cascades’ four non-CIS sports programs – men’s and women’s volleyball, men’s golf, and rowing – were on the chopping block due to funding shortfalls. The teams in limbo went into the community and raised $38,000 to bridge the financial gap and secure their futures for 2012-13, but a Continued on A20

First-place Pumas blank Mariners

Fraser Valley Mariners FC striker Craig Robinson (21) took the worst of this collision with Kitsap Pumas goalie Zac Lubin on Sunday at Bateman Park. The Pumas won 3-0.

It looked like a mismatch on paper, but it didn’t play out exactly that way. The winless Fraser Valley Mariners stayed within a goal of the division-leading Kitsap Pumas for the better part of 90 minutes in Premier Development League soccer action on Sunday at Bateman Park.

JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News

But the visitors pulled away down the stretch, scoring two late goals en route to a 3-0 win. “For the most part, we were fairly competitive,” Mariners coach Ian Knight said. “3-0 maybe flattered them a little bit, in all honesty, given the way we competed.” Matt Friesen scored twice for the Pumas and Ben Truax added

a single, while goalie Zac Lubin posted the clean sheet as Kitsap improved to 7-2-1. The Mariners’ Mark Village was the busier of the two keepers, and he finished with nine saves. The Mariners (0-10-1) will seek their first victory on Wednesday, as they host the Vancouver Whitecaps U23s at 6:30 p.m. at Bateman Park.

Olfert ‘up for the challenge’ with Cascades From A17

permanent funding solution is needed. Earlier this month, men’s basketball coach Barnaby Craddock departed for greener pastures, as he was hired away by the Alberta

Golden Bears. Losing the high-profile bench boss was a huge blow – Craddock had fashioned the Cascades into a national championship contender over his five seasons in Abbotsford. Adam

Friesen, an assistant under Craddock, will helm the squad next season on an interim basis. All the while, the athletic department was without a permanent director – the universi-

ty having parted ways with Rick Nickelchok in early October. Olfert said he wants to bring a sense of stability to the program, and added he’ll take time to learn the culture at UFV as he

develops a vision to move forward. “I’m not at all dissuaded by what’s been happening here,” he said. “I’m up for the challenge, I’m optimistic. “I really want to

make this a flagship program in Canada. I think there’s so many good student-athletes in the Fraser Valley, and we have some really good coaches in place. I’m trying to build on some of those

successes in the past, but shore up some of our weaknesses and go forward.” Chris Bertram, the Cascades men’s golf coach who had been serving as interim athletic director, was on the the search committee which hired Olfert. He said Olfert’s existing ties to the community were viewed as a positive. “We’re looking to get our community profile raised here at UFV,” Bertram said. “Having someone who’s made those ties and been effective at engaging the community and in fundraising activities in the past, that’s something we certainly saw a lot of value in.” Bertram said the UFV athletic director job drew upwards of 40 applicants. “The important thing was, we wanted to make sure we got the right person,” he said, explaining the amount of time it took to settle on Olfert. “And we feel like we did. “He’s a great guy, he’s a real honest person, he’s a hard worker.” Olfert’s roots in the community run deep. He spent six seasons (2001-07) at CBC as assistant athletic director and women’s volleyball coach, before moving over to Trinity Western University to serve as assistant AD. After one year at the Langley school, he returned to CBC to take over as athletic director and men’s volleyball coach. Olfert’s second stint with the Bearcats was a memorable one. In 2011, he guided the CBC men’s volleyballers to their first Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) championship. In 2012, CBC hosted the men’s volleyball nationals – another first for the program – with Olfert leading the organizing committee. While the Bearcats just missed the podium, finishing in fourth place, the event was deemed a success from an organizational and attendance standpoint. Olfert feels he’s leaving CBC’s athletic department on solid ground. “I’m quite confident with what’s in place there,” he said. “I’m really excited for some of their programs next year.”


The University of the Fraser Valley men's and women's volleyball teams are hosting a fundraiser this Thursday, June 21. "UFVino for Volleyball" features a wine tasting and silent auction. The function runs from 7-10 p.m. at UFV's Abbotsford campus, and tickets are available from Cascades athletes and coaches for $40 each. The proceeds will go towards covering the operating costs of the UFV volleyball teams.
