The Abbotsford Police are being lauded by a local criminologist for their innovative policing strategies, and this week’s release of Statistics Canada numbers show that criminal offences are indeed on the decline in the city. Also this week, city council learned that residents of the onetime “Murder Capital of Canada” are now more concerned with municipal government issues than crime.

The B.C. government is demanding extensive pipeline and coastal tanker safeguards as well as a bigger share of cash benefits for the province and First Nations as preconditions for considering any new oil pipeline. The announcement applies not just to Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline proposal across northern B.C. to Kitimat but also to the proposed twinning of Kinder Morgan’s existing Trans Mountain Pipeline that diagonals southwest through B.C. and runs through the Lower Mainland to a Burnaby terminal. “This isn’t tacit approval of the project,” Environment Minister Terry Lake said Monday, referring to Northern Gateway, which is further in the review process. “These are the minimum conditions we require in order to consider support.” Both projects would greatly increase the ability of oil companies to export crude oil through B.C. and via tanker to Asia, reducing reliance on the U.S. market. The provincial government has found itself caught between a public deeply concerned about spill risks and enormous pressure from Alberta and the federal government to allow a new westward outlet for Canadian oil. “We want a fair share of the benefits in order to be considered partners in a project like this,” Lake said. “Given that British Columbia would shoulder 100 per cent of the marine risk and a significant portion of the land-based risk, we don’t feel the current approach to

and benefits; and a “fair share” of the fiscal and economic benefits of a proposed heavy oil project that reflects the elevated risk to B.C. There are doubts as to whether B.C. could block a federally approved pipeline if it wants to. Lake noted that even then Enbridge would require dozens of provincial regulatory approvals, which he said would be carefully considered. The $5.5-billion Enbridge project includes one pipeline carrying heavy oil west to Kitimat and a second one to import condensate used to thin the bitumen. Kinder Morgan’s $4-billion Trans Mountain twinning would boost its capacity from 300,000 barrels per day now to 750,000. Most would go to export, bringing 300 oil tankers a year through Burrard Inlet. The province calculates only eight per cent of the tax benefits would flow to B.C. while it would bear 58 per cent of the land-based risk and all the marine spill risk.

Falling crime: Police credit ‘community engagement’ Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The latest national stats show that the AbbotsfordMission census metropolitan area (CMA) has dropped a notch in its crime severity index over the previous year. The area was the 10th highest in overall crime among the 33 CMAs included by Statistics Canada for 2011, compared to ninth for the 2010 figures. The crime stats were released Tuesday by the national agency. Abbotsford-Mission recorded an index of 87.9 in 2011, compared to 99.8 the previous year. The index is a formula based on the number of crimes in a CMA and the severity of each offence. The national average is 77.6. Abbotsford Police Department spokesman Const. Ian MacDonald said the numbers can be deceiving because the CMAs lump together crime figures for different cities. When Abbotsford is broken out from Mission, it is doing considerably better than surrounding communities, MacDonald said. The city recorded an index

Homicides have dropped dramatically in Abbotsford. So far this year, there have been three murders, including Jimmy Chau of Edmonton whose body was found on Farmer Road (above) in February. of 77.6 for overall crime, 64.6 for violent crimes and 83.9 for non-violent crimes. Mission’s index is 121.7, 100.4 and 129.9 respectively. Chilliwack’s figures are 112.6, 91 and 120.8, while the Township of Langley is at 98.1, 63.3 and 111.5. MacDonald said he attributes Abbotsford’s lower rates to a community that takes an active role in crime issues. “Look at the reception we get from everything to our crime prevention messaging to our anti-gang and antidrug messaging. We have a

very engaged community, and that has given us a huge advantage ... We tell people about the problem, and they help to be part of the solution.” For example, he said everyone from youths to parents to businesses embraced the anti-gang presentations, poster campaigns and videos that were introduced in response to gang violence in the city. This violence included several gang-related murders in 2008 and 2009, which resulted in Abbotsford being dubbed the “murder capital of

Canada.” The city has since ridded itself of that title, and homicide rates remain low. It’s difficult to put numbers on how public response translates to lower crime rates, but MacDonald believes it is making a difference. “It starts at home, and home is a pretty great place right now in terms of community engagement and community involvement.” Results of a city survey released this week appear to mirror the drop in crime rates.

City government the first concern

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Crime is no longer the top issue in Abbotsford residents’ minds. That’s according to the 2012 Citizen Satisfaction Syndicated Survey performed by Ipsos Reid and presented to Abbotsford council on Monday. The survey indicates that municipal government services is now the top issue with 18 per cent of people surveyed mentioning it. That 18 per cent breaks down to drinking-water issues (14 per cent), better staff and leadership (two per cent) and garbage and recycling services (two per cent). Crime fell into a second place tie with taxation/municipal spending at 17 per cent. Transportation was fourth with 14 per cent of people naming it a top-of-mind issue. Crime had been the top-of-mind issue in the past two years. In 2010, 38 per cent felt it was a major issue and in 2011 the figure fell to 25 per cent. Other issues of note included the economy (eight per cent); environment (seven per cent); and parks, recreation and culture; social issues; and growth and development, all with six per cent. The annual survey, which Abbotsford has participated in for the past three years, also asks questions regarding quality of life, perception of local

government, satisfaction with services and other issues. A total of 93 per cent of people surveyed said the overall quality of life in Abbotsford was good (64 per cent) or very good (29 per cent). That’s down from 96 per cent in 2011 and 95 per cent in 2010. A total of seven per cent said life was poor (six per cent) or very poor (one per cent). When asked if there had been a change in quality of life in the past three years, 58 per cent said it had stayed the same, 21 per cent said it improved and 20 per cent answered it had worsened. Of those who felt it improved, 30 per cent said it was due to improved policing and a lower crime rate, 12 per cent said growth and development and 11 per cent said more stores/better shopping opportunities. Crime also topped the list (25 per cent) of reasons why life was worse. It was followed by high taxes (14 per cent) and growth and development (13 per cent). When asked about municipal operations, 76 per cent were somewhat satisfied or very satisfied with council and the administration as a whole. When asked separately, only 72 per cent were somewhat or very satisfied with council alone and 75 per cent with the administration alone. A total of 89 per cent were somewhat satisfied or very satisfied with city services. That’s down from 2011

idents, according to the 2012 Citizen Satisfaction Syndicated Survey compiled for the City of Abbotsford. The issue was tops in the previous two years – at 38 per cent in 2010 and 25 per cent last year – but has dropped to second spot, at 17 per cent, in 2012. “Municipal government services� is now the top issue. “I think it’s like having a hockey team with a good goalie. When you’re not worried about your goaltending, you’re in a pretty good spot,� MacDonald said of the drop. The national crime stats list the Regina, Saskatoon, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg and Kelowna CMAs (in order) as the top five for overall crime, based on their crime severity indexes. Vancouver is in the sixth spot.

(92 per cent) and 2010 (95 per cent). When it came to individual city services, fire services topped the list with 94 per cent saying they were satisfied, followed by parks, trails and green space (90 per cent) and libraries (89 per cent).

Photo of robbery suspect released Abbotsford Police have released a photo of a suspect in the robbery of an 85-year-old woman on Sunday afternoon. The image was obtained from security video at the TD Canada Trust location in the 32800 block of South Fraser Way. The victim had entered the bank at about 12:45 p.m. Sunday and withdrawn some cash. Police believe the suspect watched the woman at the bank, then followed her when she drove away and parked her vehicle on Eagle Street.

The culprit then rapidly approached the woman as she was getting out of her car, grabbed her purse, pushed her and ran away. Patrol officers and a K9 unit searched the area, but a suspect was not located. He is described as Caucasian, 18 to 20 years old, clean-shaven, and 5’ 8.� He was wearing a black hoodie and possibly a dark baseball cap. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Sentenced for three child porn offences Martin Smith receives one-year jail term

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford man has been sentenced to one year in prison and two years’ probation for three child pornography offences. Martin Gregory Smith, 52, was previously convicted of possessing, accessing and sharing child porn. He was sentenced Monday in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack. Smith was charged in July 2008 after police executed a search warrant at the home he owned in Abbotsford with his wife. Authorities investigating Internet crimes against children had traced downloaded child pornography images and videos to a computer in the Smith home, and alerted the Abbotsford Police Department (APD). The APD then seized two computers – a desktop and a laptop – which were later found to contain hundreds of pornographic images of

children as young as four and five years old. In his ruling last December, Justice Neill Brown said an APD investigator reviewed almost 13,000 files of the 94,000 that had been extracted from the computers. Of those, almost 1,200 were found to meet the legal criteria for child porn, while about 1,400 were categorized as “child-related” (depicting children in explicit clothing and/or positions). Another 900 were labelled as erotica (kids in attire such as bathing suits). In addition, almost 1,000 photos and videos were found to have been distributed over LimeWire, a software program in which people can share music, video and photo files with other users. About 30 per cent of those were considered child porn, while the rest were categorized as “child-related” and erotica. Smith was also found to have searched and accessed child porn over the Internet,

with an investigator estimating that 90 per cent of the computers’ search history under his account was related to the topic. During Smith’s trial, defence lawyer Ondine Snowdon had argued that although child pornography was found on computers in the Smith home, there was no direct evidence that he had knowingly acquired or shared the data, as both he and his wife had access to the computers. The two had separate accounts, and no child pornography was found on his wife’s account. Brown said he found it “highly speculative and contrary to common sense” to suggest that Smith’s wife had accessed his account and downloaded child pornography, given the number of images that had been stored in the three-year period before his arrest. Brown said her only motive for doing so would be to frame him, and he found there was no evidence to support this theory.

BY DR. ELIZABETH BORGMANN

Birds make wonderful amazing companion pets. But don’t let them fool you. For such small creatures, they are a lot of work. Their general care is quite involved. The cages can become very elaborate. Their nutrition is complex. Creating a safe and intellectually challenging cage is quite the creative undertaking. And you will spend a significant amount of time preparing fresh fruits and vegetables. It might not sound like a lot of work—but it is. Every day. All year round. No holidays. But the two greatest challenges of all are meeting the intellectual needs of the bird and training the bird.These are smart creatures. Living with a bird is like living with anything from a perpetual toddler to a grade school child, depending on the species you have chosen. Birds that are bored are prone to

numerous destructive (and sometimes self destructive) behaviors. Imagine sitting in the same room with minimal furnishings and a bland uninteresting diet all your life when you are a fairly intelligent individual. Frustration can rear its ugly head in the form of self-mutilation, vocalization, aggression and illness. Not only are birds intelligent, they are potentially dangerous and destructive. A macaw or cockatoo can take your finger off! Owners often love and fear their birds. The birds get to rule the household and no one is happy. When you purchase a bird, you have undertaken a huge responsibility. Do your research first. Find an appropriate species (lifespan, housing and nutritional requirements, training challenges, intelligence). And be prepared to commit a significant amount of time and resources to their care. The end result will be worth it.

WebTalk Distracted driving

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Considering crime statistics, do you feel Abbotsford is a safer city?

It is pretty hard to ban cellphone use in cars unless car manufacturers start installing cellphone blockers as part of original equipment on vehicles. And as for distracted driving I have seen more police officers driving while using the laptop and or cellphone so if they are allowed to use them that’s not right and they should lead by example. Stanley Querin

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Like the HST decision, a law pushed onto society that nobody even wanted, this cellphone ban is ridiculous! Especially for safe drivers needing to be driving and on the phone: Tow truck drivers, long haul drivers, delivery drivers – tons of commercial driving, now made illegal, or risk your job/client, because you can’t answer the phone, parked at a red, or driving your car one handed for 30 seconds...

B.C. Views By the time you read this I should be in Vanderhoof, the geographical centre of B.C., to visit relatives. Born in the Okanagan, raised in the Peace country and working for 20 years in Metro Vancouver, I’ve driven from one end of the province to the other more times than I can count. A similar trip last year began just as a huge mud slide was cleared near Chilliwack. Other drives have featured mid-summer hail piled 10 centimetres deep on the Coquihalla, a near miss between two moose in the Pine Pass, plus the usual blizzards and hundreds of traffic jams for construction, accidents and growing urban volume delays. This time I’ve got a new tool on board, the mobile version of DriveBC.ca on my BlackBerry. Launched two years, ago, the mobile site has taken off with the surging popularity of smartphones.

In the past year, DriveBC’s online traffic averaged 1.2 million visits a month, about half to the five-year-old desktop site and half from mobile users. It’s by far the most popular B.C. government website. I asked DriveBC technical leader Nainesh Agarwal for these stats, and he said even he was surprised by the surge in mobile traffic in recent months. But trying out the mobile site, it’s easy to see the appeal. With a few clicks, the phone displays incident reports and web camera images for my chosen route. Webcams have been added steadily all over the province, and now watch 18 key locations on Vancouver Island, 93 in the Lower Mainland, 73 in the Southern Interior, 35 in the North and 13 at Canada-U.S. border crossings. At a glance, you can check anything from the traffic at the Lions Gate Bridge to the lineup for the Skidegate ferry on Haida Gwaii. Most pictures update every two minutes, offering a real-time look at traffic, weather and road conditions. A recent addition is “replay the day,” which shows the last 24 hours of pictures in a few seconds.

Another new feature is an email alert that can be customized. You can subscribe to a particular region or highway and receive notices as soon as they are posted to the DriveBC network. And of course there is an @drivebc Twitter feed, where between 6:30 a.m. and midnight,

In the past year, DriveBC’s online traffic averaged 1.2 million visits a month staff update conditions and respond to inquiries. (Major events are automatically tweeted overnight.) Verified reports are fed from highways staff and contractors all over the province and co-ordinated through the provincial highways condition centre in the Lower Mainland. It’s become a primary source of information for radio and TV traffic and news reporters around B.C. The mobile service now has an option

for drivers to report new problems they encounter. After determining your smartphone’s location, the site displays the name and phone number of the local maintenance contractor who can take the report. For those who haven’t joined the smartphone era, there is an old-fashioned option. Dialing 5-1-1 anywhere in the province gives access to a toll-free line that connects to recorded DriveBC messages. Agarwal said use of that service has been declining as phones with web access become more popular. The 5-1-1 service also requires you to use the keypad to select your route from a numerical list, so drivers would have to pull over rather than breach the new restrictions on using handheld devices while driving. The 5-1-1 system still gets surges of heavy use during major events like the recent flooding. The plan is to upgrade the system to allow voice recognition, so drivers can use headsets to get updates on the move.

City takes, but gives nothing We have invested in a home and property on Hogberg Road for near 25 years. Abbotsford city annexed us a few years ago, and started a landslide of unbelievable events to erode our investment and our lives. Our taxes have near doubled. We deliver our garbage to Sumas Mountain Road for pickup – not our property line as promised at a town hall meeting. Our property is no longer our peaceful retreat. The city has threatened us with large fines if we cut or prune our trees. This has been our source of firewood in lieu of gas. Now they tell us to do our own ditching, at our expense, out of the corner of their mouth, and retract the statement almost immediately. Just enough to upset all of us, of course. Our money is taken, and we are given nothing in return. Recently we have become aware of a threat to use a large portion of our land as a buffer zone for a future park. This park would be in conjunction with Metro Vancouver. Parks are lovely, but not at our expense. Are you city councillors considering our rights? Are you willing to do as you ask of us? Remember Mission council when you make decisions, and think about your own future. Remember us when you make laws. Our rights as property owners and our constitutional rights must be upheld. We do not need this stress. We are seniors living our retirement years in a house we built, on the land we have nurtured and love. Sally Sandusky

letters Cutting taxes on wine would create more jobs “Conservative” MP Dan Albas would have you believe that striking down an arcane law that no one followed will create more jobs in Canada’s wine industry. But do you know any tourists who didn’t take B.C. wine back to their home province because of Canada’s 1928 law prohibiting the transportation of liquor over provincial borders? Do you know of any wineries in B.C. that didn’t sell wine to visitors because of this law? Yeah… neither do I. Of course, Mr. Albas doesn’t know any either, which is why

he’s pretending there’s going to be a sudden increase in Internet wine sales across the land. Are you planning to start buying more wine? Why would you? It’s not as though Albas made wine any cheaper. Our nanny state still forces us to pay ridiculously high “sin” taxes on wine and other intoxicating liquors. These sin taxes are levied provincially and Mr. Albas is a federal MP. But the measure of success or failure of Albas’s private member’s bill now rests entirely, by Albas’s own admit-

tance, on whether or not the provinces will play along with what he calls “the spirit” of his bill. This leaves Mr. Albas, begging provincial officials to see things his way. While chatting with these officials, why not raise the issue of reducing the outrageous amount of “sin” tax we pay on liquor? Everyone knows it’s the only way we’re going to get more jobs in the wine industry. There’s also the outstanding issue of processed foods which remain easier to import from the U.S. than to transport across provincial borders. I know many people working in B.C.’s wine industry, and they all say the same thing: “Reduce our taxes!” And shouldn’t a politician who claims to be a conservative at least try to do that?

City to bid on Games

ABBOTSFORD INTERNATIONAL

AIRSHOW! AUG 10-12, 2012

coloring co ntest

Abbotsford wants to host the 2016 BC Summer Games. Council approved a staff recommendation to submit a bid for the four-day event, which attracts approximately 3,500 participants. The city will now budget $60,000 ($30,000 in both 2015 and 2016) and $50,000 in additional in-kind services and facilities, if the bid is successful. This year’s games, held in Surrey, featured 20 different sports. Staff called the event an economic development opportunity, noting the 2008 games in Kelowna generated

an estimated $2.6 million economic benefit. The BC Games Society provides event management services and $600,000 in funds from the province. The society also has a history of leaving behind a financial legacy. In the past two games, a gift of more than $75,000 was presented to the host communities. In 2004, Abbotsford received $174,394, which resulted in the purchase of a saddle tent, still being used at various events around the city. The bid must be submitted by Sept. 10 this year.

will hold a nomination meeting in September to pick their candidate for Abbotsford South, and he believes there are at least two other people who will also seek the nomination. Gill said he was not sure who the other potential nominees are. Gill has served as a city councillor for 16 years, first elected in 1996. The Abbotsford ridings have long been considered safe seats for the Liberals, but whoever wins the nomination will be running against MLA John van Dongen. He left the Liberal party in March 2012 to join the B.C. Conservative Party. Liberals Kash Heed, Dave Hayer, Murray Coell, Kevin Krueger and Harry Bloy have all announced they will not be running in the 40th B.C. general election, which is scheduled for May 14, 2013. Barry Penner and Ian Black have quit the party. For more than a year, polls have shown the governing Liberals running a distant second to the NDP. Many political pundits say the emergence of the Conservative party, which is polling just behind the Liberals, has split the centreright vote. “It’s going to be an exciting election,” Gill predicted.

Telus pegs its losses to metal thieves at $16 million last year – resulting in phone service outages that left customers unable to use 911 in emergencies – and the firm is averaging an incident each day so far this year. “We hope it will be a turning point in the battle against metal theft in B.C.,” Telus vice-president Dave Cunningham said of the new law. He wouldn’t estimate how much Telus might pare its losses, but said the company would be happy if it could halt the steady climb in metal theft incidents.

New B.C. regulations clamping down on metal theft are now in effect but nobody’s predicting the scourge will be wiped out any time soon. Scrap metal buyers now must keep a daily log of their purchases and suppliers, who have to provide identification, be registered and can only be paid by cheque for amounts over $50. The Metal Dealers and Recyclers Act aims to plug gaps in the patchwork of different municipal bylaws drawn up by cities to try to combat wire theft. “Hopefully we’ve landed at a place where we have something that will work effectively,” said provincial spokesman and Chilliwack MLA John Les, adding the government will consider further changes if necessary. “There are some awfully wily people out there who are sometimes pretty clever in figuring out the workarounds.” While bylaws have helped reduce unscrupulous salvage metal buying in a dozen Lower Mainland cities, wire and other objects are still pilfered in those areas and then resold where no bylaws exist. Despite having a bylaw, the City of Surrey alone incurred nearly $3 million in losses last year and media stings have found spotty compliance among local dealers.

Checking scrap dealers

Want to get away?

Everything from phone and power lines to phone booths and manhole covers get dragged in to metal salvagers, mainly by prolific offenders in search of drug money. Provincial inspectors will also do periodic spot checks of the more than 120 scrap metal dealers in B.C. to ensure they register and comply with the rules. Violators face fines of up to $100,000 and possible jail time. The regulations cover not just wire – the main target of thieves – but other specific metal objects like traffic lights, signs, sewer grates and metal grave markers.

Making News Making History Gala

Making News Making History Gala

The new law was a long time coming – municipalities and utilities had been lobbying for action since at least 2006. Questions abound over how much use police will be able to make of the information collected by buyers to pursue suspected thieves. Dealers are supposed to relay the information on what they buy daily and police can compare that to reports of stolen items and then get a court order for more information as needed. Critics in the recycling industry contend the rules put too much onus on them instead of the thieves.

Abbotsford News Thursday, July 26, 2012

Bring your own wine arrives Diners can now bring their own bottle of wine to participating restaurants in B.C. The new Bring Your Own Wine program was unveiled last week by Rich Coleman, the province’s minister in charge of liquor regulation. He said it offers patrons the ability to have any wine they want with their dinner and should spur more business for restaurants. A big part of the lure will be the savings – restaurants typically double the price of a bottle from a liquor store – but a big chunk of that will likely be eaten up by a “corkage fee” restaurants will be allowed to charge for service. Corkage fees might be $15 or more at some restaurants, which will be free to set their own rates or charge none at all. “By allowing people to bring their own bottle of wine into their favourite dining establishment, we’ve provided restaurant owners with a great opportunity to create a new type of dining experience that will further promote our wonderful restaurants here in British Columbia,” Coleman said, adding B.C. has no plans to broaden the program to beer and spirits.

Recycle Your Small Electrical Appliances, Power Tools & More As of July 1st, you can recycle more than 300 different household electrical products such as small appliances, power tools, exercise equipment and sewing machines at one of over 120 ElectroRecycle drop-off locations across B.C.

Abbotsford will take a controversial Agricultural Land Reserve proposal to the public. Council voted Monday to begin a consultation process regarding the ALR exclusion application for 22 properties in the Bradner area. The proposal asks to remove 225 acres from the ALR to create an industrial development. The properties are bordered by Highway 1 to the south, Lefeuvre Road to the east, 56

Ave./Harris Road to the north and the Abbotsford/Langley border to the west. The proposal, by the Emerson Real Estate Group, indicates thousands of jobs could be created and approximately $4.7 billion in economic activity generated. However, some property owners in the Bradner area have been vocal in their opposition. Coun. Patricia Ross – who chaired Monday night’s meeting for a vacationing Mayor Bruce Banman – told the

The Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Thrift Shop in Yarrow is now being rebuilt following a suspected arson in May. Doug Willms, MCC BC provincial thrift shop coordinator, said it was first thought that the store â&#x20AC;&#x201C; located at 42232 Yarrow Central Rd. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would have to relocate. But it has since been determined that the damage was not as extensive as initially believed, and the store is being rebuilt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fire- and smokedamaged areas of the store are currently under construction. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say exactly how long it will take to finish the restoration but we are hoping to re-open by the end of summer,â&#x20AC;? Willms said.

The Mennonite Central Committee building was the site of a suspected arson in May, but it is being rebuilt at the same location. Donations will be accepted at a later date. The Yarrow site is one of 10 MCC thrift shops in B.C. that raise funds for the relief, development and peace work of the MCC in over 50 countries around the world. Last year, they

contributed more than $1.4 million. The Yarrow MCC Thrift Shop has its roots in the 1940s, when local Mennonites collected clothing to be shipped to needy people in war-torn Europe. When the war ended and MCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts

expanded globally, warm winter clothing was no longer in demand. It was decided that this clothing would be sold and the funds used for material resources needed overseas. For more information about MCC, visit bc.mcc.org.

Agrifair: 102 years of volunteerism Hundreds of volunteers, many who work virtually yearround, are about to bring “the best little country fair” back for the 102nd showing of Agrifair. Where Pigs Fly is the theme of this year’s event, held Aug. 2-6, in a nod to the 50th anniversary of the Abbotsford Airshow the following weekend (Aug. 10-12). The 36,500 people who attend Agrifair benefit from the dedication of a handful of key people. The not-for-profit organization is run by a board of 16 directors who work year-round, each of them heading a committee to handle a specific aspect of the fair, such as stage entertainment, and the rodeo. President Ernie Silveri returned to head the board of directors this year. “It’s phenomenal the amount of time these guys put in,” said David Schmidt, who has been in charge of media relations for the past 15 years. He said the planning began in earnest in February. There have been big projects, such as bleacher seating that has been upgraded for spectators watching entertainment in the rodeo ring. There will also be a new Agriland, with demonstrations of gardening, composting and even bee keeping. And there are also behind-the-scenes jobs. For example, it’s one matter to book an entertainment act, such as the military men of Lord Strathcona’s Horse, but then arrangements have to be made for food and lodging for the soldiers. “There are all kinds of little details that need to be looked after,” said Schmidt. During the five days of the fair, more than 200 volunteers augment the efforts of the committee. They do jobs that are not necessarily fun, such as picking up litter on the grounds. They will put in four-hour shifts, sometimes working eight-hour

Behind-the-scenes work coming to fruition days, for pizza and a T-shirt. “They love the

fair, and they want to be part of it, said Schmidt. “They’ve

always done it, or their mom and dad have always done it.

Some do it just to support the community, and some do it to get

work experience. “The fair gets in your blood. These

people look forward to it every year – even though it’s work.” The directors work to balance an annual budget of more Continued on A22

than $600,000, and they have put on the show without raising prices for a decade. Last year, they took a serious hit – $100,000 in lost revenue – with the closure of the Fat Pig Saloon. “It had gotten too rambunctious for a family fair,” explained Schmidt. There are still two licensed areas where a fairgoer can seek out a frosty adult beverage. One is in the food court, which features a beer garden, and the other is at the rodeo venue. Unlike the Fat Pig Saloon, where the party went late into the night, the rodeo venue closes at 10 p.m. Entertainment this year includes singer A.J. Woodworth on Saturday at 9 p.m., rock band Starfield on Sunday evening at 7 p.m., a mounted troop from Lord Strathcona’s Horse daily, and a range of attractions from paintball to a wrestling show. The always popular Mighty Fraser Pro Rodeo will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 6 p.m. For more information see the show’s website at Agrifair. ca.

Canadian folk legend Penny Lang comes to the Envision Twilight Concert Series on Wednesday, Aug. 1 from 7 to 8 p.m. Lang’s career spans four decades, eight albums and saw her evolve from being a coffeehouse draw in her Montreal hometown to being one of Canada’s leading roots-based artists. Lang learned about singing and storytelling around the family’s kitchen table with her family and friends. Her first influences were favourites of her father and included Hank Snow, Jimmy Rogers, The Carter Family, and The Weavers. Continued on A28

Abbotsford’s Gallery 7 Theatre has released its lineup for a new season called Theatre for Life. “There’s nothing quite like the live theatre experience,” said artistic director Ken Hildebrandt. “When those house lights go down, the actors take the stage, and a story unfolds in three dimensions, something truly amazing happens. We experience something universal and communal, something that takes us beyond ourselves.”

The 2012/2013 season includes a Jane Austen classic; a Canadian story of love, loss and war; a Canadian amateur premiere of a children’s classic; and a hilarious comedy. Q Sense and Sensibility, adapted by Jon Jory. Jane Austen’s classic story of two sisters and their search for the right man is brought to life in this stage adaptation. While Elinor is enamoured by the unassuming and awkward Edward, Marianne is swept off her feet by the viva-

cious Willoughby. When the men’s secret lives are revealed, the sisters must depend on one another for support. The show runs Nov. 2-17. Q Mary’s Wedding, by Stephen Massicotte. On the night before her wedding, Mary dreams of love, war, what was and what could be. Her thoughts focus on her first love, Charlie, who she met by chance in a barn while seeking shelter from a prairie thunderstorm. Continued on A30

Titty and Roger are granted their wish to camp on an island, they eagerly look forward to a summer full of adventure and fun. Fueled by their imagination and a desire for new experiences, they set sail in their trusty boat, Swallow. The show runs March 9-24. Q The Foreigner, by Larry Shue. Charlie, a pathologically shy young man, is a little down on his luck of late. His best friend “Froggy,” a munitions expert in the British Army, treats Charlie to a vacation at a small fishing lodge in rural Georgia. Before leaving, Froggy announces to all that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and can’t speak a lick of English. And so the fun begins. As Charlie listens in on sinister plots and scandalous revelations, he unwittingly becomes the catalyst to righting what has been wronged. The show runs June 7-22.

As the Olympic torch lights up London this week with the opening of the Summer Games, the glow will extend all the way to Abbotsford. Local sports fans have a multitude of reasons to cheer as Canada’s Olympic athletes take to the pitch/hardwood/ track/pool, and we’ve prepared a viewer’s guide. (A word of warning: with the eight-hour time difference between Abbotsford and London, watching live will often require setting the alarm clock for the wee hours of the morning.

Sophie Schmidt, soccer At 24 years of age, the Abbotsford Soccer Association’s most decorated alum has already accomplished plenty in her inter-

The team played some great baseball and pitched well, and the defence kicked in and shut down opponents. The Angels defeated Vernon in the semis and then beat the Calgary Selects in the finals in Kamloops. The team played their first league game last week against Ridge Meadows, and

continued their fine play with a dominant 14-0 win. Additionally, Angels pitcher/first baseman Cade Smith has been picked for the Team B.C. entry at the Continental Amateur Baseball Association World Series. The tournament runs this week in Sylvannia, Ohio.

Johnson wins gold at Games Abbotsford’s Noelle Johnson won a gold medal in girls softball at the BC Summer Games. Johnson, a 13-year-old who plays for the Abbotsford Outlaws, helped

the Fraser Valley zone team to a perfect 4-0 record at the Games. The regional squad was simply dominant, out-scoring opponents 27-0.

Cardinals pitcher Matt Forsythe will start Game 1 of the playoffs against the Okanagan Athletics.

Cards aim to topple rival A’s Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Thisweekend’splayoff match-up between the Abbotsford Cardinals and the Okanagan Athletics figures to be the most fascinating of all the B.C. Premier Baseball League firstround series. For starters, the two teams finished close in the standings – the A’s are the BCPBL’s fourth seed at 32-16, while the Cards have already locked up the No. 5 seed at 27-19 heading into a pair of

road games against the North Shore Twins to wrap up the regular season on Thursday. But it goes deeper than that – there’s a genuine dislike between these two clubs, stemming from a hotly contested four-game set at DeLair Park, July 14-15. According to Abbotsford head coach Corey Eckstein, the bad blood began when the Athletics started chirping at Cardinals shortstop Luke Cooke, who left the A’s to join

Royals well-represented at Games underway before Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening ceremony â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canada played Japan on Wednesday (result not available at press time). Other group games for Canada are Saturday vs. South Africa (6:45 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, CTV) and next Tuesday vs. Sweden (6:30 a.m. PST, Sportsnet). Teresa Gabriele and Kim Smith, basketball The mere presence of the Canadian womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoopsters at the Olympics is a feel-good story. Canada hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualified for the Games since 2000, but they won back-to-back elimination games at a last-chance qualifying tourney to claim the final berth. It seemed appropriate that the clinching victory â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 71-63 over Japan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; came on Canada Day. Gabriele (nee Kleindienst), the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s captain and point guard, is the lone holdover from the last Olympic squad, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely to retire from international basketball at the conclusion of the Games. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joined on the roster by fellow Mission native Smith â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both players are products of the powerhouse basketball program at Heritage Park Secondary. The Canadian womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoopsters have a special connection to Abbotsford â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they held training camps at the University of the Fraser Valley each of the past four years. When to watch: In the preliminary round, Canada plays Russia (Saturday, July 28, 3 a.m. PST, CTV), Great Britain (Monday, July 30, 12 p.m. PST, Sportsnet), France (Wednesday, Aug. 1, 1 a.m. PST, CTV), Brazil (Friday, Aug. 3, 6:30 a.m. PST, Sportsnet), and Australia (Sunday, Aug. 5, 6:30 a.m. PST, Sportsnet). Mike Mason and Jessica Smith, track and field Abbotsfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Valley Royals track and field club has been one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elite for decades, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sending two athletes to the Olympics this year. High jumper Mason has been a longtime club member â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as a high schooler, the Nanoose Bay native would ride the ferry across from Vancouver Island to train with Royals power/speed coach Ziggy Szelagowicz. He

battled a nagging ankle injury after the 2008 Beijing Games, and moved to Abbotsford last fall to reunite with Szelagowicz. The move paid off, as Mason achieved the Olympic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; standard at a meet in Guadeloupe in May,

Final Four berth up for grabs From A35

the Cards prior to this season. A couple of cleats-up slides by the A’s escalated matters. Over the course of the weekend, the benches cleared four times, though nothing developed beyond a little pushing and shoving. “It was a fun environment,” Eckstein noted

with a dry chuckle. Looking ahead to the best-of-three series in Kelowna, the Cards players say they’re not interested in getting torqued up emotionally to face their rivals; they want to take a level-headed approach. But pitcher Daniel Koo admitted his team is relishing the match-up.

“This is what we prayed for,” he said. “We couldn’t have asked for a better team to play on Saturday. “They don’t really have that class, as they should as a baseball team. Even losing a couple games to them during that (regular season) series was kind of heartbreaking

for us. We want to take these playoff games.” The Athletics boast a potent offence, and it’s going to be a tall order for the Cards’ pitchers to quiet their bats. “All of them have the power to take it over the fence, so I want to keep them off-balance,” said Matt Forsythe, Abby’s Game 1 starter.

Swimmer Hayden a medal threat From A37

who overcame illness to finish third at the national championships and punch her ticket to London. When to watch: Mason’s high jump qualifying is Sunday, Aug. 5 (11:05 a.m. PST, CTV), and the finals are Tuesday, Aug. 7 (11 a.m. PST, CTV). Smith’s 800m heats run Wednesday, Aug. 8 (3:35 a.m. PST, TSN), followed by the semifinals (Thursday, Aug. 9, 11:30 a.m. PST, CTV) and

finals (Saturday, Aug. 11, 12 p.m. PST, CTV). Brent Hayden, swimming Hayden, a proud product of the Mission Marlins summer swim club, is one of Canada’s true medal threats. He’ll compete in the 100m freestyle and the 4x100m freestyle relay in London. Hayden has climbed the podium before at the world championships, winning gold in the 100m free in 2007 and silver

in the same event in 2011, but he’s seeking his first Olympic medal in his third trip to the Games. When to watch: The 4x100 free relay goes on Sunday, July 29 (heats 3 a.m. PST, CTV; final 11:30 a.m. PST, CTV). The individual 100m free begins Tuesday, July 31 (heats 2 a.m. PST, CTV; semifinals 10:45 a.m. PST, CTV) and wraps up Wednesday, Aug. 1 with the finals (11:30 a.m. PST, CTV).

Surpanch Gurmit S. Kondolay was born on October 7, 1934 in Lallpur (Jawadi), Pakistan. He was the son of the late Tara Singh and Basant Kaur. Due to the partition of India and such circumstances his family settled in Bagga Khurd, Ludhiana. On March 26th, 1956 he married his lifelong partner, Sukhdev Kaur and was blessed with eight children (4 sons and 4 daughters). He immigrated to Canada on February 21, 1967 and the rest of the family soon followed to Canada in 1968. He struggled to provide for his family as a millworker and later brought out their agricultural roots to become successful farmers of Abbotsford, with retirement to follow in 2003. While on vacation in 2007 to India, he had a total bowel obstruction and later diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Since then, he was given a life expectancy of 2 years and put up a fight of his life with 48 chemo treatments, 13 radiation treatments, and stretched that expectancy to 6 years and travelled 3 more times to his motherland. He was a devoted father who instilled hard work, honesty and respect to each one of his children. He was passionate and loved life. Surpanch Gurmit S.

POWSHUK Michael Robert Sunrise August 9, 1941Sunset July 20, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Powshuk after a short but very courageous battle with heart disease. He faced his illness with admirable courage, strength, and determination. He was a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;one of a kindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guy who had such a natural ease with his grandchildren, loved to entertain on his party boat at Hatzic, loved his friends and family and of course Buy and Sell. He will be missed tremendously by all who loved him, his wife Dianne, brothers, in laws, children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces, so many close friends, and puppy Makenzi. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Dr. William Chan, the staff at ARH and the cardiac clinic, palliative care, home care, ambulance and first responder firemen. No funeral by request.
