NHL lockout a boost for Heat Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Heat’s struggles to fill the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre have been well-documented, but for two electric evenings, the building was the epicentre of pro hockey in Canada. A pair of games against an Oklahoma City Barons squad loaded with up-and-coming NHL stars drew capacity crowds of 7,046 on both Friday and Saturday, with hockeystarved fans flocking from far and wide to get their fix during the NHL lockout. “You’re going through withdrawal, right?” explained Earl Petkau, who flew in from Edmonton to watch the Oilers’ AHL affiliate. “All the young guns are here (in Abbotsford), so it was a perfect opportunity.” Without a doubt, the NHL

The City of Abbotsford paid the Heat a total of $3.58 million to cover financial shortfalls during their first three seasons in town – a condition of the 10-year supply fee agreement to play out of the AESC, which guarantees the team an annual break-even budget of $5.7 million. The Heat were 29th out of 30 AHL teams in attendance last season, drawing 3,545 fans per game, according to league stats. They’re currently averaging 5,109, good for 16th overall, with four of their eight home games high-profile dates with the Wolves and the Barons. Now, the Heat’s challenge is to fashion the momentum into a foundation for long-term financial success. “It gives us a chance to build our business,” Walter said.

A crowd in excess of 1,000 people gathered under grey skies to commemorate the past and present service and sacrifice of the country’s armed forces.

Fire guts home of seniors

A chimney fire in Abbotsford on Sunday morning caused extensive damage to a home that an 88-year-old man had lived in since he was two years old. Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service was called to the blaze on Downes Road, near Ross Road, at about 10:15 a.m. When crews arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the attic. Assistance Fire Chief Jeff Adams said the fire began in the basement and spread up through the chimney. “The home is heavily damaged, and not sure if it’s going to be repairable or not … It’s too early to tell, but it doesn’t look good,” he said. The homeowners did not have insurance, he added. Emergency services is helping the family find alternate accommodation and will assist them in determining their next steps, Adams said.

Fire heavily damaged this home on Downes Road on Sunday morning.

The practice of Gideons International providing free Bibles to Grade 5 students whose parents give permission will not be reviewed by the Abbotsford board of education, despite attention to the issue in Chilliwack. Abbotsford chairman John Sutherland said the district has not had individuals in the community express concern about the matter. The Chilliwack school board plans to discuss the issue, following concerns expressed by the B.C. Humanist Association, which maintains the distribution of free Bibles is contrary to the Public Schools Act of B.C., which states that schools should be operated “on strictly secular and non-sectarian principles.” Sutherland said the issue “crops up every once in awhile” in Abbotsford, but the board of education has no concerns that the Schools Act is being violated. This would only be the case if teachers themselves, rather than a member of Gideons International, were distributing the Bibles, he said. Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Powell River are the only districts in B.C. that participate in the program. Sutherland said only about 10 Grade 5 classes in Abbotsford received the Bibles last year. He said the district would be open to having materials from other religions made available to students, but no other group has made that request.

Otherwise clean-shaven men around Abbotsford are sporting facial hair throughout November in support of prostate cancer research and other men’s health issues. The international “Movember” movement has drawn participation from numerous individuals and groups in the city, including the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) and the Abbotsford Heat hockey team. The APD has 17 members who have opted to sprout moustaches and/or beards while raising funds for the cause.

Const. Ian MacDonald is among them, and he jokes that the occasion should be renamed “enduring ridicule for a month for a good cause.” To date, the group has raised about $1,600 for the cause. Donations can be made on the web page ca.movember.com/ team/669985. The Heat hockey team is also involved in the movement. “As a group, we recognize the importance of supporting Movember as a cause that makes a lot of sense to a dressing room full of guys,” said captain Quintin Laing. A portion of the Heat’s hockey games on Nov. 9 and 10 against the Oklahoma City

Barons went to the Movember campaign. Fans are invited to contribute to the team’s fundraising efforts at any time by visiting the web page ca.movember. com/mospace/2937537. The Movember campaign began in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia and involved men growing moustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health. The campaign has since grown to almost two million people worldwide who have raised over $300 million to support the cause. The funds raised in Canada support men’s health, specifically mental health and prostate cancer initiatives.

MLA calls for conflict probe of premier Van Dongen wants focus on Clark’s statements relating to BC Rail

Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen is asking the Conflict of Interest Commissioner to investigate the activities of Premier Christy Clark in relation to the privatization of BC Rail. The premier has responded by saying she would welcome such an investigation, and would co-operate fully. Last week, van Dongen presented members of the media with a thick binder of documents including Hansard records from the legislature and press clippings that he has assembled.

“We did a lot of work on this,” he 15, 2003, when the government antold The News at his constituency of- nounced BC Rail would be put up for fice on Thursday. “This is important. sale, and Nov. 19, 2003, when cabinet This is about leadership.” approved CN as the successful Van Dongen was given inbidder.

Reptile Guy gets a new home Rescue facility garners critical public support

Neil CORBETT Abbotsford News

The Reptile Guy has a new lair. Mike Hopcraft was busy carrying boxes, box turtles, computer monitors and a monitor lizard into his new location at Unit 7-34366 Forrest Terrace last week. It’s a warehouse space, right beside the freeway overpass, where Riverside Road goes under the Trans Canada Highway. It is “by far the best” space he has had for his reptile rescue venture. So, he was as busy as a bearded dragon – whose heads were bobbing excitedly behind the glass of their new tank – getting it ready for the first visitors on the weekend. He was arranging aquariums in the nocturnal room, where he will turn day into night for the denizens, so visitors can observe them at their most active. He clicks on a red light over an aquarium, and a trio of scorpions glow green. There will also be tarantulas,

gecko lizards, some frogs and other animals in the room. There is a 1,400-gallon turtle pond, populated by pets that were once the size of loonies, but grew into dinner plates. In a terrarium there is a coil of six boa constrictors. Another will house a pair of iguanas. Hopcraft has a quarantine area and an office in a mezzanine that overlooks his operation, which he considers near perfect for his purposes. It comes after a public appeal resulted in $6,500 in donations. The publicity also netted him several new rescue animals, like the boa constrictor that came in a week ago. It is only about six years old, and will likely live for 30 or 40 years. It’s not the fact that it has grown to seven feet in length that discouraged the snake’s former owner. Rather, he told Hopcraft he has chosen to live remotely, “off the

Zoos an archaic practice

Another exotic creature has died at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove. Jafari, a 12-year-old male giraffe, was found dead inside its barn on Nov. 3. It is the third giraffe to perish at the zoo, after Jafari’s mate Eleah, 23, and their male offspring, Amryn, 4, died last year. It’s not yet known what caused Jafari’s death, although initial necropsy results seem to rule out low body fat and cold temperatures, as some initially thought. The investigation continues. In each instance of the giraffes’ demise, public reaction has included sadness, concern, and in some cases, harsh criticism of the facility, which has had a disturbing string of deaths among its animal inhabitants over the past several years, including a hippo and four zebras. Negligence was not found to have

been a factor in the deaths of the creatures. However, the fact of the matter is that exotic creatures found only in climates and countries vastly different than what exists here, are being imprisoned for the entertainment and “education” of people. It is an archaic practice that must come to an end. Species such as elephants, giraffes and big jungle cats are intended to roam across vast expanses of terrain. Education can no longer be used as an excuse to put them inside enclosures and cages, where they languish – and are ogled by people – until they die. Neither is it justification to say they were born in captivity. As long as zoos allow the animals to breed, the cycle will never end. The point is that wild animals don’t belong in zoos. Period.

This ‘burning issue’ should be snuffed Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand Surprisingly, while Metro Vancouver is considering regulations to curb the burning of wood in fireplaces and airtight stoves, it is actually proceeding cautiously and slowly on any proposal to ban the use of them completely. What is equally surprising are claims that one-third of the households in Metro Vancouver contain a wood-burning device. Did they count, I wonder, all the high-rise apartments across the Lower Mainland, or all the homes and condos built over the past couple of decades that, if they have a fireplace at all, burn only gas? If the claim of one-third is accurate, there must be hundreds of thousands of wood-burning stoves and fireplaces throughout Metro Vancouver, yet the district fields only about 90 complaints a year of noxious odours alleged to

emanate from said devices. Thankfully, and sensibly, the Metro board seems to be of the opinion that should a complete ban on wood-burning be imposed, those who already have fireplaces or stoves will be permitted to continue using them. Which leads me to wonder where all those urban people get their firewood. Surely most do not own a chainsaw, a pickup truck or a convenient forest they can reduce to cord wood. So I sense there is either a great market for enterprising woodsmen, or the issue of wood burning in the urban quarters of Metro Vancouver is somewhat akin to smoke and mirrors. I’d also have to believe that ‘in the city’ fireplaces are used primarily to add either romance or ambiance to an occasional evening and not used as a principal heating source (see lack of substantial wood supply above). On the other hand, when you live off the gas grid, as I and many other rural dwellers do, using wood for heat makes economic sense, particularly when the oil-fired furnace gets fewer ‘miles per gallon’ than your average dump truck.

Even then, out here in the ‘suburban wilderness,’ finding an adequate and annual source of firewood is a challenge, not the least of which is the time, tools and effort required to cut it down, split the rounds, stack and store it for six to 12 months to ensure prop-

... wood burning in the urban quarters of Metro Vancouver is somewhat akin to smoke and mirrors. er seasoning and efficient burnability. But when the fireplace is crackling away, with waves of heat flowing into the room, there is a definite aesthetic appeal that complements the cost savings. And when you step outside on a crisp fall/winter evening and savour the tang of wood smoke, the pleasure is not only intensified, it conjures warm memories. So I have to wonder where those 90

complainers in Metro grew up, and what exactly don’t they like about it. Granted, if every home on the Lower Mainland was continuously belching smoke, there might be some health issues, but according to health authorities wood smoke is not as carcinogenic as the burned diesel most of us breathe every time a truck passes. However, today most urban homes are not heated by wood, which by the way is carbon neutral for all you environmentalists out there. Burning gas, on the other hand, is not … otherwise the proposed gas-fired SE2 power plant in Sumas, Washington would be going strong today. That was a battle worth fighting, but must every complaint or concern warrant punitive action on the part of regional districts and city councils? Perhaps Langley City councillor and vice-chair of Metro’s environment and parks committee, Gayle Martin, said it best: “Look at wood smoke compared to vehicles. Do you plan on banning vehicles? Are we going to ban something every time we get a complaint?” markrushton@abbynews.com

letters Save Bradner from industry As a long-term resident of Bradner, I am very afraid for the community right now. Interests outside the neighbourhood have been trying to capitalize on the speculative nature of the ALR land next to Langley’s Gloucester Estates, and have it rezoned to industry for years now.   In 2004, citizens rallied and Abbotsford removed those almost 300 acres from the city in the country plan altogether,  and we all felt like we had slayed the industrial dragon. Fast forward to 2012. After at least two other failed attempts, those same outside interests are at it again, only this time they’ve hired the big players and all the angles are covered – much to the delight of the city, which is desperate for money. Very frightening for those of us in Bradner/ Mt. Lehman, indeed.   I pray the city does not sell us out just to make a buck and save their own behinds. I’d like to think that this historical little enclave is worth more than that.  Please consider that 50 per cent of Gloucester Estates is still empty after all these years, and any monetary predictions about Abbotsford are merely pie-in-the-sky job figures that make for great spin. The line should be drawn at the Langley border. Those of us who contribute to this amazing rural neighbourhood with plans of living here indefinitely, may soon change  our plans once industry starts rearing its ugly head.   This is a thriving agricultural community, and it has been for over 100 years.  To rape and pillage Bradner to serve the financial interests of a cash-starved city and a select few who have no business making decisions about our neighbourhood, would be criminal.  City council will hear both sides of the ALR versus industry argument Nov. 19 at 7 p.m., at city hall.  Council could very well vote this through that night, and start the exclusion process with the ALC immediately.   From what we are told, it could be a scant three years before the landscape becomes concrete for all time.  If you care about the future of Bradner/Mt. Lehman at all, please attend the aforementioned city council meeting Nov. 19 and have your say.  After that, it could be too late. Please help save Bradner from the chopping block.

Three years for break-in Prior conviction for brutal sex assault Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

A violent sex offender whose release from prison was the subject of a police warning in April 2011 has been sentenced to three years in jail for another offence. David Dutiaume, 25, pleaded guilty to breaking into a home on Aug. 10 in the 4100 block of Bridgeview Street in Abbotsford. Charges of theft and possession of stolen property were stayed. About $20,000 in items, including electronics, was allegedly stolen from the home. The residence had also been vandalized, causing about $5,000 worth of damage, according to police at the time.

Dutiaume was denied bail after his arrest and has remained in prison since then. He was first sent to prison in 2005 to serve a six-year sentence for the brutal sexual assault of an 84-year-old woman in Surrey. He was 15 years old in June 2002 when he posed as a donations collector for Unicef and forced his way into the victim’s home. He put a pillow over her face, punched her repeatedly, and raped her. The victim’s daughter arrived to see Dutiaume fleeing with her mom’s purse. DNA evidence tied him to the crime scene two years later, and he was

At the time, they said assessments conducted of Dutiaume during his incarceration indicated that reintegration into the community could be an issue. Although he did not end up living in Abbotsford, he had ties to the city and all his crimes since his release occurred here.

Fight results in fire Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford man was taken to hospital on Wednesday night after an apparent fight with his brother resulted in him suffering serious burns. Just after 7 p.m., Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service was called to the 27000 block of Myrtle Avenue – west of Lefeuvre Road – for a reported RV fire. When they arrived, they found that the motor home on the back of the property was engulfed in flames. A 31-year-old man on the scene was suffering from serious burns and smoke inhalation, but was conscious. Initial reports VIDLEIONE indicate ON ws.com that the abbyne man had been in a fight with his older brother, 34. Const. Ian MacDonald said it appears that the older brother brought an accelerant and poured it inside the motor home. It was then ignited by a heater. The flames then spread towards the younger brother. The older brother fled the scene in a vehicle before crews arrived, but Mission RCMP were able to track him down in Mission just before 9 p.m. He was turned over to the Abbotsford Police, and arson charges are being recommended.

The elderly residents of Garden Village Mobile Home Park have been given until Jan. 15, 2013 to vacate, as the 55-yearold trailer court is closing. Garden Village, located at 1881 McCallum Rd. near the Highway 1 overpass, was in the media in March as the 55-and-over residents complained about losing their homes and investments to redevelopment plans for the 13-acre site. Some seniors had moved there in recent years, purchasing trailers and spending thousands more on their homes, and they feared their funds would essentially be lost.

Many found it difficult to sell their aging mobile homes. Property owner Karen Matty clarified that although the site has great development potential for commercial/ retail properties, there are no firm plans. Rather, she is closing the site because the aging infrastructure would need to be rebuilt. At the heart of the problem is the original water main. “For the past year and a half we have been assessing the condition of the infrastructure in our aging park and inspections have confirmed that many of the service lines are rapidly deteriorating,” said a letter to park residents. “There is a great concern that the water main will

not last through the winter.” Park manager Paul Hague told the News the water supply is the prime concern. “I’ve been battling with it for four years,” he said. “Let’s just say, it’s not what they would build today.” He said the tenants have been warned for more than 18 months that they should find another place to live. Each has been contacted individually. He has been assisting residents to sell their homes or relocate. If Matty had a plan before council to redevelop the site, the tenants would require either two years notice or two years worth of pad rent. This situation, however, is that

“we’re shutting down the business,” explained Hague. Tenancies have been ended by signed mutual agreements, and residents compensated with 24 months worth of pad rent – approximately $12,000 for many residents. In addition, tenants who have sold or moved their mobile homes from the park have been given another $4,000. However, they are not being given the option of staying for two years with free pad rent. In March about one-third of the occupants had left, and now only a minority remain. “Everyone seems really motivated. There are only a few people left,” said Hague.

Vitala Foods launches vitamin D enriched product Vitala Foods was “Spreading the Sunshine” at promotional events across the Lower Mainland this week, to promote the launch of their new Vita D Sunshine Eggs. The Abbotsford company had a mobile van preparing breakfast burritos outside the Save-on-Foods store on Sumas Way on Thursday.

rays. “We’re excited to do our part to help British Columbians get their daily dose of vitamin D, a crucial nutrient known to have widespread health benefits,” said Vitala Foods president Bill Vanderkooi in a press release. “We’re a home-grown Abbotsford company, so we’re pleased to be celebrating our launch in our home town.” The eggs are sold at Save-On-Foods, Cooper’s, PriceSmart, Choices Markets and Urban Fare throughout B.C.

Gloria Dei Chorale presents And There is Music

Dear valued patients, It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to inform you that as of today Dr. Anisa Quadir is no longer with Clayburn Dental. As you may know, Dr. Quadir sold Clayburn Dental to me 3 and half years ago. When she sold the practice she wanted to make sure that the transition went smoothly and agreed to continue practicing at Clayburn Dental in the short term. In the meantime Dr. Quadir purchased a home in Vancouver and joined a practice shortly thereafter. This was all part of her plan to begin slowing down. Over the last few years she has had the opportunity to hand pick and train her replacements as nothing is more important to her then knowing her loyal patients were left in the hands of qualified and experienced Associate Dentists. Some of them you may know and be familiar with but we also have a few new faces at the practice. All of whom have worked closely with Dr. Quadir to make her exit seamless for her patients care. Please join me in thanking Dr. Quadir for her years of service to Abbotsford and the surrounding communities. We look forward to continuing to serve you. Please feel free to call us to arrange a consultation with one of our friendly Doctors. Sincerely,

Dr. Brad McDonald

The 2012 edition of Agrifair got close to break-even, despite soaring temperatures that discouraged fairgoers, and organizers of the city’s summer fair believe they are on the right track It was “a very successful fair even though we lost a little money,” president Ernie Silveri told the recent Agrifair annual meeting. The 102nd edition of the country fair lost about $7,000, which was an improvement over the 2011 fair, which generated a deficit of just over $20,000. Agrifair general manager Pamela Brenner blamed the small loss on a drop in attendance caused by the extreme heat wave which occurred during the fair. West Coast Amusements was forced to shut down its rides at one point, because the metal around the seats was hot enough to burn riders. “Weather will always be a factor in how well a fair does,” Brenner said. Most years, Agrifair attracts 36,000 fairgoers. The loss in gate revenues was offset in part by a $13,000 increase in sponsorships. “I fully expect the 2013 Agrifair to be in the black,” Silveri said in a press release. “We are receiving incredibly strong support from the City of Abbotsford and the increase in sponsorships shows the local business community is also rallying behind the fair. “Our goal is to move Agrifair from being the ‘best little country fair’ to a ‘big country fair,’ ” Silveri said. To ensure the fair meets that lofty goal, Silveri invites the community to submit their ideas to the board so they can be incorporated in the planning. “We want everyone’s input because everyone is important to us. This is not our fair, it’s Abbotsford’s fair.” Suggestions and comments should be sent to agrifair@telus.net. Members of the board who were re-elected at the AGM include Silveri, Don Curtis, Lea Reisig, Neil Watson and Jared Webster. The group also welcomed back former director John Durham and elected Keith Nash as a new director to the board. Directors then elected their 2013 executive, consisting of Silveri as president, Al Philps as vice-president, Susan Krochter as secretary and John Durham as treasurer. Reisig and Watson were added to the executive as directors-atlarge. The 2013 Abbotsford Agrifair will be held Aug. 1-5 at Exhibition Park.

Two Abbotsford police officers who were instrumental in producing a documentary that addresses the risks of ecstasy use have been honoured with an award from the provincial government. Const. Carrie Durocher and Const. John Davidson were among the recipients of the Ministry of Justice’s Community and Safety Crime Prevention Awards presented on Friday, Nov. 2. They received the Wael T.

family and friends, and was shown at 15 schools over a three week period. It was also posted online, and DVD copies were made available to the public. Durocher and Davidson began working on the project in March 2012, often on their own time. Their work included identifying a production company, creating a script, coordinating volunteers, arranging interviews, editing the film, and screening it. The crime prevention awards are presented annually as part of Crime Prevention Week.

Vedder Transportation president Fred Zweep is receiving the Global Natural Gas “NGV Champion” Award. The award was given out Nov. 7 in Mexico City. The prize is awarded by the International Association of Natural Gas Vehicles, which is based in New Zealand. It is given to a person who has significantly advanced the use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel, and furthered the goals of the NGV industry. Vedder has a fleet of 50 liquified natural gas trucks, which have been in operation for about a year. On Dec. 1, Vedder and FortisBC will open Canada’s first fully serviced Commercial Liquified Natural Gas Card Lock in Abbotsford. “I do not deem the award presentation to be that of my singular success; rather it’s about the cornerstone of success based on the collaborative efforts of Vedder Transport Ltd. and our partners FortisBC, Peterbilt Pacific and Westport Innovations which has led to the successful delivery of the Vedder Transportation Groups Natural Gas Project,” he said.

Heat get the best of highly touted Barons Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Heat showed well against the highest-profile opponent they’ll face this season, as they took three of a possible four points against the star-studded Oklahoma City Barons. The Barons have been the greatest beneficiary of the NHL lockout in terms of personnel, as they’ve added NHL-proven forwards Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall and Ryan NugentHopkins, along with stud blueline prospect Justin Schultz. All that firepower amounted to little in Friday’s opener, though, as Abbotsford out-shot OKC 36-23 en route to a dominant 4-0 win. Immaculate specialteams play and stellar goaltending have defined the Heat’s hot start to the season, and those twin trends

carried them once again on Friday. Dustin Sylvester, Ben Street and Krys Kolanos scored power-play goals, and goalie Danny Taylor stopped everything the Barons sent his way. Ben Walter rounded out the scoring with the easiest goal he’ll ever get credit for. Barons defenceman Martin Marincin’s clearing attempt from behind his own net

bounced off a teammate’s skate and past OKC goalie Yann Danis, and Walter had been the last Heat player to touch the puck. The play was reminiscent of Steve Smith’s infamous own-goal in the 1986 playoffs, which gave the Calgary Flames a series victory against the powerhouse Edmonton Oilers. The Barons gave a far better account of themselves on

Peace by Piece

Saturday, winning 2-1 in overtime. Playing before a sellout crowd of 7,046 fans for a second straight night, Hall and Sylvester exchanged third-period goals. Then at 1:36 of the extra frame, Schultz lifted the Barons. Jumping into the rush, the AHL’s leading point-getter took a drop pass from Eberle and ripped a gloveside wrist shot past Heat keeper Taylor. “I was thinking about changing,” admitted Schultz, who was tired at the end of a long shift. “But I stayed out there, and Ebs had it, and I knew he was going to find me. He made a great pass.” Heat head coach Troy Ward felt his crew was “a step behind mentally” on Saturday, but was pleased with the weekend overall. “If you go back to

the musical

the … supposedly daunting task of who we were playing, we didn’t give up a fiveon-five goal,” Ward noted. “We gave up a four-on-four goal and they got a power play goal in two complete games. I feel pretty good where our team is at.” n  The Heat (7-13) are back in action on home ice with a Tuesday-Wednesday set against the Lake Erie Monsters (7 p.m. both nights, AESC).

Schulte honoured by PacWest Bearcats libero wins player of week award

Sharaya Schulte of the Columbia Bible College Bearcats picked up the PacWest women’s volleyball player of the week award last week. Schulte, a rookie libero out of Mennonite Educational Institute, anchored the Bearcats’ defence in a pair of wins over the College of the Rockies Avalanche last weekend. She notched 12 digs on Friday, and 12 more on

Saturday. “The Avalanche are a very tough serving team,” CBC coach Duncan Harrison noted. “Sharaya was on the move for the duration of both matches. She really led by example on both serve receive and defence.”

LOCAL TEAMS RANKED The Bearcats and their crosstown rivals, the UFV Cascades, were both mentioned in the initial Canadian Colleges Athletics

Association (CCAA) rankings released Tuesday. The Cascades, tops in the PacWest conference at 6-0, debuted at No. 5. It’s fair to wonder if the defending CCAA bronze medalists are underrated at this point – the Vancouver Island University Mariners, second in the PacWest at 5-1, are ranked No. 1 in the nation, owing to their status as defending national champs. The Bearcats (5-3, third in PacWest) check in at No. 10 in the CCAA rankings, which is a record for the program.

Cascades women sweep UVic

A23

Men lose both on home-opening weekend

The University of the Fraser Valley basketball teams took divergent paths on home-opening weekend against the Victoria Vikes. The Cascades women, ranked No. 2 in the nation, broke out the brooms against UVic, winning 63-49 on Friday and 62-52 on Saturday at the Envision Athletic Centre to improve to 4-0 on the season. The No. 4-ranked men, meanwhile, were on the wrong end of a sweep, as the Vikes beat them by scores of 73-69 and 78-72. “Good weekend, to win two games against a quality team like Victoria,” UFV women’s coach Al Tuchscherer stated in a press release. “A lot of valuable lessons to take away from the challenges they presented.” Both nights, the Vikes hung with the Cascades women for the first half, only to watch UFV pull away

The UFV men (2-2) engaged in a backand-forth battle on Friday, with the Vikes pulling ahead for good in the fourth quarter. Kyle Grewal led the Cascades with 23 points and eight rebounds, while Kevon Parchment scored 20. On Saturday, the Vikes raced out to a huge 42-23 advantage at halftime. The Cascades clawed their way back after the break, getting to within four points in the final minute of regulation, but UVic hit their free throws down the stretch. Parchment posted 23 points, nine rebounds and six assists, while Grewal chipped in with 21 points. “We played great in the second half,” UFV coach Adam Friesen noted. “Our offense came alive and we hit key baskets to get back into the game.” n The Cascades hoopsters hit the road this weekend to face the UBC Thunderbirds.

at the Canadian University Rowing Championships, hosted by UBC at Burnaby Lake last week. The Cascades’ women’s and men’s squads both finished in the top 10 out of 20 teams. The women placed eighth overall, moving up two spots from 2011, while the men were ninth, an improvement of one spot. The men’s two crew of Mat Morrison and Scott Micona came in seeded seventh, but won their race in dominant fashion, 10 seconds ahead of Geulph University. The lightweight men’s duo of Antony Dayton and Emmett Campbell came ninth. Jocelyn Woelke and Debra Neufeld came in eighth in the women’s pairs, a remarkable finish considering that they came in seeded 10th and Woelke was a last-minute sub for the injured Genevieve Santos. “We made UFV history this weekend, in some key races,” commented UFV rowing coach Liz Chisholm.

Worried about the Chinese government taking over Canadian companies?

You won’t believe PM Harper’s latest sell-out. Hon. Ed Fast, MP: Please Do the Right Thing and Oppose a Bad Deal for Canadians! Prime Minister Harper plans to move Canada one giant step closer to becoming a resource colony for foreign investors. The Harper government has discarded many critical Canadian voices and agreed to one of the most controversial and binding trade agreements ever—and one you’ve likely never heard of. And so far, your MP, the Hon. Ed Fast, has gone along with this plan. PM Harper’s Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act, or FIPA, undermines Canadian democracy and sovereignty. Chinese state-owned companies will be able to complain that their profits were harmed by changes to environmental, labour, or other

info@ForestEthicsAdvocacy.org | 604.331.6201 Join the conversation on Twitter at #cdnpoli.

Canadian laws or regulations—and lodge a dispute with a secret tribunal that will decide these cases. Canada will have no recourse to its own courts and legislatures. And worst of all, this incredibly bad deal will put us in a straightjacket for 31 years. One thing is for sure, though: it’s a really good deal for foreign investors, including China’s state-owned oil companies. What does this mean in practical terms? If PM Harper approves Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline and the government of British Columbia decides to impose new restrictions to protect the BC Coast from oil spills or to reject the project, investors could sue under the treaty. If BC decides to put restrictions on shale gas

fracking, foreign investors could object and demand hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation. Canadians will no longer have final say over what happens on our land. This dangerous trade deal was sprung on Canadians with no public debate, without consent from the provinces whose jurisdictions are impacted, and without Parliamentary scrutiny or a vote in the House of Commons. Stand with us against a deal that only foreign investors could want. Email the Hon. Ed Fast, MP, at ed.fast@parl.gc.ca and tell him to help stop this bad deal before it’s too late.

BERTRAND Frances (Fran) Mary Our dear mother and grandmother, Fran (Frances) Bertrand (nee Monner), passed away peacefully on October 29, 2012, at the age of 94, after a short illness, in Abbotsford, BC. She was the beloved wife of the late Ross Bertrand for 71 years- an amazing accomplishment. They were proud Albertans, only moving to BC in 2010 to be near family. Fran is survived by sons Michael (Ricki) and Ron (Shelagh) and by daughters Nancy (Tod) and Shirley (David), and by six grandchildren: David, Stuart (Alicia), Andrew, Julie, Emily, and Matthew. She is also survived by sisters-in-law Mabel Gerding in Vulcan, Marilyn Rhodes in Edmonton, and Jean Bertrand in Ottawa, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Ross, by one son William Ross, her brothers and sistersLawrence, Wilbur, Wayne, Winnie, and Bob, as well as parents Mike and Myrtle Monner. Fran was born on April 17, 1918, and received her education, in the Milo, Alberta area. After they were married, and Ross went overseas in 1941, she attended Normal School in Calgary and taught until 1945- the end of the war. While raising her children, she continued to subteach in Milo, Claresholm, and Lethbridge, as well as teaching ‘Wheat Weaving , ‘Fully Alive’ and ‘Keep Fit’. A lifelong learner, Fran was active in the Claresholm ‘Reading Club’ and in the Lethbridge ‘Mathesis Club’- women’s study groups. She and Ross enjoyed many active years of travel (seeing much of the world), of volunteering, of golf and dancing, and of making new friends while living in a senior condominium- Grandview Village in Lethbridge. As her grandson David said on her passing, “Grandma Fran may have passed away in BC, but her soul is among the wheat fields and coulees of Southern Alberta”. She was an old soul, full of wisdom and kindness, a great role model for all of us. Our deepest thanks to the kind staffs at Hallmark-onthe-Lake senior home, where Mom and Dad lived for 2 years, and Bevan Lodge, Mom’s home for the last few months. And special thanks to Larynda Brown, Mom’s faithful care-giver for the last year. The family will hold a private memorial at a later date, followed next summer with the internment of Mom and Dad’s ashes in the cemetery near Milo, Alberta. To quote Fran: “Since we have spent most of our lives together, we might as well be together in death.”
