Prime Minister Stephen Harper with students from UFV’s Chandigarh, India, Bachelor of Business Administration program.

UFV strengthening connections in India: PM visits with UFV Chandigarh students

T

he University of the Fraser Valley strengthened its ties to India recently through an 11-day visit by UFV president Mark Evered and colleagues. And a visit by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his trade mission to Chandigarh gave students from UFV’s business administration program there the chance to make a good first impression on the PM and business leaders. The students were part of a dance troupe that entertained Harper during his visit to Chandigarh, and also hosted members of the PM’s delegation at UFV’s Chandigarh location. Evered was joined on his trip, which ran from Nov 4 to 15, by UFV chief financial officer Jackie Hogan and Satwinder Bains, the university advisor on Canada–India relations and director, UFV Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies. With a significant amount of the population of the Fraser Valley region having ties to India, UFV values its strong relationship with the Indian community, both within Canada and in India. Since 2005, UFV has been offering its Bachelor of Business Administration degree to a cohort of students in Chandigarh, in India’s Punjab state, in partnership with Sanatan Dharma College Chandigarh (SDCC), an affiliate of Panjab University. UFV also has partnerships with several other Indian post-secondary institutions. These partnerships facilitate student and faculty exchanges,

student internships, and visiting scholar initiatives. Although they were on separate trips, the UFV delegation’s tour overlapped with Prime Minister Harper’s trade mission to India. In addition to entertaining the prime minister at a special dinner, UFV hosted Abbotsford MP and federal Minister of International Trade & Asia-Pacific Gateway Ed Fast and other business delegates to discuss and build on employment opportunities and connections. Paul Davidson, president of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, was also part of the delegation that visited UFV’s Chandigarh location. Davidson was delighted with UFV’s achievements in India and the impression students made on the federal delegation. UFV is exploring ways of creating more internship and coop opportunities for its students through new connections made with the Canadian and Indian governments. “This trip, coinciding with that of the Prime Minister’s trade mission, gave UFV the opportunity to make some great connections with several federal ministries who have interests in stronger partnerships with India, with some key Indian business contacts, and with some very influential Canadian business and R&D leaders. This can only lead to more opportunities for our UFV students, both those in Canada and those based in Chandigarh,” noted Evered. “All

of our Chandigarh students at the evening event were delighted they had the opportunity to shake the Prime Minister’s hand.” While in India, Evered, Bains, and Hogan visited several of UFV’s Indian partner institiutions. “Our delegation’s priority was to connect with UFV India partners in Punjab and the region,” notes Bains. “UFV’s involvement in India is based on education, research partnerships, student international engagement, and fostering a deeper understanding of our growing connections with the north of India.” UFV students Adam Rieu, Stacy Thoreson, and Kathryn Shiratti are currently working in India on internships with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada’s Students for Development program. The UFV delegation visited with them during the trip. The visit also enabled Evered to

connect with UFV India staff. “Gurneet Singh Anand, our associate director of UFV India, has done outstanding work for us, including recruiting the tirelessly dedicated ‘team Peary’,” says Evered. Former Abbotsford mayor and longtime school administrator George Peary and his wife Sylvia are providing teaching and support in the Chandigarh business administration program for UFV. Evered was also pleased with the tremendous support for UFV by Scot Slessor, consul-general of Canada in Chandigarh. The UFV delegation attended an event called CanadaConnect at the Canadian Consulate, hosted a dinner to highlight UFV’s presence in India, and presented talks and scholarships awards to UFV Chandigarh students at the annual awards ceremony. They also met with the Canadian High Commission in Delhi.

Investigating agency finds alarm procedure issues

Kinder Morgan made recommended changes, stresses spill was contained Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

It took more than four hours from the time the first alarm warned of a possible leak at Kinder Morgan’s tank farm in Abbotsford until a spill was actually discovered, according to a report released this week by the National Energy Board (NEB). The NEB, the lead investigative agency looking into the cause of the 110,000-litre spill on Jan. 24 of this year, concluded that proper procedures were not followed that day by Trans Mountain Pipeline ULC (TMPU), which is owned by Kinder Morgan. The NEB determined that an operator monitoring the TMPU alarm system – based at a control centre in Edmonton – did not deal properly with three alarms that came from one of the Abbotsford tanks. “A factor that contributed to the amount of crude oil released in the Tank 121 secondary containment area is that the leak was not detected as quickly as it should have been,” the NEB report states. The operator failed

JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News

A 110,000-litre oil spill at the Kinder Morgan tank farm on Sumas Mountain was not discovered until four hours after the first alarm went off on Jan. 24 of this year.

to recognize a drop in the tank’s volume and determined that the first two alarms were false, the report states. He made note of the third alarm for follow-up with the day-shift operator. The first alarm was noted at 2:39 a.m. on Jan. 24, followed by ones at 3:11 and 4:11 a.m. The day-shift operator notified a terminal operator at 5:50 a.m., and the leak was discovered exactly an hour later in a tank containment area when that person arrived on site.

The NEB report stated that the alarms were not set at the proper values – information that was not known by the night-shift operator – and this might have contributed to the inappropriate response. Delays in response time were among the concerns expressed by residents after the spill. Many said they first noticed a strong odour in the area at about 3 a.m., and they questioned why Kinder Morgan did not discover the leak until almost

four hours later. Residents in the Auguston neighbourhood – located near the tank farm – reported that the smell contributed to nausea and headaches, and they were concerned about longterm health implications. The NEB report concluded that the spill, which was isolated to a containment area and did not cause any environmental damage, was due to a failed gasket, likely damaged by excessive pressure caused from

freezing. The drain valve of the roof drain system was open at the time and allowed crude oil, which could flow through the failed gasket of the roof system, to enter the secondary containment. The NEB report indicated that the tank was built in 1963 and was last inspected in 1995. The NEB made a number of recommendations for TMPU to follow. Lexa Hobenshield, spokesperson for Kinder Morgan Canada (KMC), said the company has already implemented these measures, or is in the process of doing so. “It is important to remember that when oil from a storage tank at the Sumas Mountain Terminal spilled, it was fully contained within an area on the property that was lined with impermeable membrane, no one was hurt, and there was no threat to the public because of the spill,” she said. The NEB report confirms that TMPU has addressed the findings and has taken corrective ac-

NEB ‘satisfied’

Soft Lift

From A3

QUESTION: Is it true you can achieve a soft face lift with the use of cosmetic fillers? Will the results look natural? - Jane, Aldergrove

From Great People to Great Performance

ANSWER:

The Real Estate Store • West Oaks Mall

As we age the bones of the face actually soften back as does the fat in the fat pockets of the face. At the same time our skin expands due to the effects of natural aging. In other words the table cloth is now too big for the table. With the Soft Lift we combine the smoothing effect of Botox with the filling effect of Juvederm fillers. The result is a natural looking lift with no downtime, done in just one treatment!

tion. “The board is satisfied that these actions are appropriate to prevent the occurrence of similar incidents in the future.” Michael Hale, a member of the PIPE UP Network opposed to pipeline expansion, said the NEB report is an eye-opener. “When I ask the company about the risk of spills, they point to the spill at the tank farm in Abbotsford in January this year, which they claimed was ‘quickly contained.’ Over 110,000 litres of a noxious petroleum product were spilled. The more information I get, including this report from National Energy Board, suggests that the containment was not that simple or quick.” The Sumas terminal is part of the Trans Mountain Pipeline system which brings crude oil from Alberta to terminals that end in Burnaby and Washington State. Products are temporarily stored along the pipeline in 22 tanks in Kamloops, Abbotsford and Burnaby. Six of them are in Abbotsford, which also has a pump station for the pipeline. This is not the first time that Kinder Morgan has been criticized for delays following an oil spill. In 2005, a rupture was detected in Abbotsford in the pipeline on the north side of Ward Road, and a total of 210,000 litres of crude oil was released into the surrounding area and into Kilgard Creek. A follow-up report in 2007, from the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, indicated there had been a delay in response time because the line between the Sumas tank farm and the Sumas pump station was not part of a leak detection system. That system was then installed, resulting in the pipeline being monitored 24 hours a day.

City to issue a five-year licence to private operator

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

A proposed wakeboard cable park in Albert Dyck Park has been given the green light by Abbotsford council. The city has agreed to enter into a five-year licence for the privately run operation. In May, council was told that at least three private groups were interested in running a cable wakeboard park. However, when a request for proposals was issued, only one application was received. The bidder, Stu McKeown, has been working closely with the Fraser Valley Water Ski Club, which, after initially opposing the idea, said

it would be able to work with the bidder. The club will allow McKeown to share its clubhouse and use it as a rental shop for the cable park. A cable park eliminates the need for a boat to wakeboard or water ski.

An onshore motor pulls cables across the lake while riders hang on and perform tricks or stunts. The park will be constructed at no cost to the city. McKeown estimates the city will receive about $6,000 (five per

cent of revenue) a year from the venture. After the first five years, when the capital costs have been paid for, staff are suggesting the profit sharing be increased to 50/50. While council agreed to allow the park, Coun. Henry

Braun said he was concerned that the amount of space for public swimming is being reduced. However, staff explained that while the structure eliminates about 40 feet of swimming area at the south part of the lake, it opens up a potential new swimming area on the opposite side of the lake because there will be no boats on it. The new park will consist of two separate cable tower systems, starting docks and waiting area for riders. McKeown has also agreed to provide 50 additional paved parking spots (bringing the total to 110), and offer other rentals including kayaks, canoes and paddle boards.

Mt. Lehman Elementary received the City of Character award for its Character Club project. The Character Club consists of five students in Grade 7, with principal Peggy Antifaeff and learning assistance teacher Lisa de Vries also involved. After the five students attended the City of Character Youth Symposium at Mouat, they decided they wanted to focus specifically on the “service” virtue. At the same time, the Character Club also wanted to get the entire school involved in exemplifying and learning about the other five. In order to ensure all are covered, five teachers and their students have taken on a virtue, and will each have a day where they present it to the school, whether at an assembly, through crafts or other creative ideas.

The Character Club wants to raise awareness to the “service” virtue by educating fellow students about it during an assembly. After researching the needs of the community, the students also decided to use the award money for materials to make jewelry and friendship pins, selling them to raise money for the children’s ward of Abbotsford Regional Hospital. At the end of the school year in June, the students will present their fundraising dollars to the pediatric ward, hoping they can help meet hospital needs. During this project, the Character Club students are learning about specialties in pediatrics, as well as the City of Character virtues.

It’s believer beware

It’s less than a month to the apocalypse. Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? Will you even bother, considering the end of the world is nigh? The ancient Mayans predicted Armageddon for Dec. 21, 2012, the date they stopped calculating their calendar. That’s when the renowned astrologers and mathematicians said the 26,000-year grand cycle of evolution would cataclysmically crash to a halt. The Mayans aren’t the only doomsayers. Christian denominations reference a Judgment Day that is the culmination of a great battle between good and evil. Ancient Norse mythology foretold of a final showdown between the gods. There are physicists who calculate the end of mankind as a mathematical inevitability, astronomers who say it’s only a matter of time until we’re all snuffed out by a collision with an asteroid or the demise of the sun, geologists who predict we’re one giant

volcano eruption away from eternal darkness. And don’t forget, there were some computer scientists who said Y2K would be the demise of us all. Of course, for every doomsday scenario, there’s a screenwriter poised at a keyboard trying to turn it into the latest Hollywood blockbuster.There’s nothing like a little end-of-days escapist entertainment to help take your mind off your current problems, like paying the mortgage, and getting the kids to soccer practice. It’s all enough to make you curl up in a ball on the couch and tune in for that marathon session of Dr. Phil you’ve been denying yourself for so long. Or maybe empty your bank account and go on one last spree of travel, trinkets and T-bone steaks. Just keep in mind, when it comes to doomsday predictions, it’s believer beware. –The New Westminster News Leader

The eternal (culinary) question Andrew

Holota

On Point “What’s for dinner?” Ah yes, the eternal question. Actually, the infernal question, if you happen to be the cook in the house. I know, because I’m the pot-slinger around our hacienda. I get asked that question pretty much daily. In fact, I sometimes ask it myself, although you’d think I’d know. But there are times I am a soldier without marching orders. That’s a common cook’s complaint. As much pleasure as we “chefs” derive from preparing good food, the sheer delight of feeding the hungry wears a bit thin, especially if there’s little to no participation in the planning process. It may come as a shock to those who find the kitchen an alien environment, but putting dinner on the table usually requires some preparation. A meal plan, for instance. And then shopping for the

required items. Ideally, this is done well in advance, as opposed to the cook despairing over a cold stove, out of ideas ... and time. My family is now reasonably well trained in developing a dinner agenda for the coming week. It wasn’t always that way. When I asked the question, “What do you want for dinner this week?” the response was “I don’t know,” from the youngster, and “Whatever you cook,” from the wife. Oooh, now there’s inspiration! Yes, indeed, I’ll just sprint into the kitchen and whip up a steaming platter of whatever. When I pressured them, I’d get a more detailed response like: “How about chicken?” Well, that narrows it down to about, oh, what, 2,000 recipes? Finally, I found the trick. I took out six random cookbooks, and a set of dice. I declared that the roll of one die would determine one of the cookbooks. The second roll of both cubes would yield a number, which multiplied by 10, would select a page number. The gamers could then choose one recipe from that page. As fun as that initially sounded, it

quickly became apparent that often the choices were along the lines of liver with mashed turnips, or pickled pigs’ knuckles. Rebellion was threatened on all fronts – their refusal to play, followed by my refusal to cook.

Yes, indeed, I’ll just sprint into the kitchen and whip up a steaming platter of whatever. Hence, we found the common ground to plan a weekly menu together, before the weekend grocery shop. Now it’s just a matter of agreeing on the meals, which is not as easy as it used to be. My teen daughter has developed a new passion – healthy eating. This is good. However, her enthusiasm isn’t shared to the same high degree by her parents.

In fact, some of the ingredients that go into her healthy recipes are things I can’t pronounce, let alone recognize. Take quinoa, for instance. (Please, take it. Take it all!) Who knew this ancient grain was making such a comeback in healthy-eating circles? Actually, it’s not a grain at all, it’s a seed. And that’s probably the problem right there. This was actually fed to the birds hundreds of years ago, and the contemporary tofu crowd misinterpreted it for real food. Nevertheless, it is very good for you, I am frequently assured by our resident expert. So is kale, apparently. If you’ve never had this bushy green treat, it looks like lettuce on steroids, and tastes something akin to shredded burlap bag. Now when I ask the girls what they want for dinner, I get: “Something healthy,” and “How about chicken?” Actually, the big upside of all this is that the teen is becoming a good cook. Now, occasionally, I can sit back and ask the eternal question. “What’s for dinner?” And that’s a fine thing.

‘Reasons to be hopeful’ Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Mayor Bruce Banman reflected on his first year in office and spoke in optimistic tones about the city’s economic future during an address to the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. The luncheon, held at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre, drew a full house. “We have many reasons to be hopeful and optimistic,” Banman said. “But we can’t be complacent.” The mayor identified ongoing taxpayer subsidies of the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre as being “the single biggest challenge” he faces.

The AESC ran a deficit of $1.7 million last year, with an additional $1.76 million going to cover the Abbotsford Heat hockey team’s financial shortfall for 2011/12. One of the most productive things the Chamber of Commerce members can do for the community right now is to invite friends, family and business associates to Heat games and entertainment acts at the arena, Banman said. With Abbotsford projected to undergo major population growth over the next 25 years, he emphasized the importance of planning and vision, and spoke of the need to increase densification, and to provide “sustainable, flexible” transit systems in part-

nership with neighbouring municipalities. Banman pointed to a series of major developments, including the Highstreet shopping centre project – the largest mall to be built in western Canada in the past 30 years –  as signs of the city’s economic health. Banman lauded citizens for reducing their water consumption by an “astonishing” 25 per cent this year, which has given city hall “breathing room” as it evaluates new options for water infrastructure. Banman also noted Abbotsford’s partnership with Mission is back on track, and is seeking to establish what the “true needs” are in terms of water supply.

Local choir takes stage with Smith Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

When Grammy Award-winning singer Michael W. Smith performs in Abbotsford this Sunday, he will be accompanied by a 40-person choir from Abbotsford. The Heritage Alliance Church Choir, under the direction of Randy Raine, will perform seven songs with Smith after receiving the most votes in a Facebook video contest. The show, “A Very Special Christmas: The Symphony Tour,” takes place at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, starting at 7 p.m. Mary Kruk, a member of the Heritage Alliance Church Choir, said many in the group

are big fans of Smith and are excited to be performing with him. “We’re twittering – in the old-fashioned way,” she laughed. The choir was formed in 1991, and usually consists of 25 to 30 people. Forty were required for the concert, and the additional spots were filled by church members who aren’t part of the regular choir. For more information about Smith’s concert, visit abbotsfordcentre.ca. The choir presents its annual production on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Heritage Alliance Church (3440 Mt. Lehman Rd.). Tickets are $5 each or $20 per family and are available at the door.

The number of school suspensions has dropped in Abbotsford, according to the latest numbers released by the school district. Last year, there were 727 out-ofschool suspensions, compared to 805 the previous year. In-school suspensions dropped to 526 in 2011, compared to 683 in 2010. Total suspensions have dropped

about 30 per cent since 2008 and are highest at the Grade 9 and 10 levels. Drugs are the most common reason, and boys account for about 80 per cent of suspensions. Assistant superintendent Steve Carlton said the drop in the numbers can be partly attributed to a “system-wide response to children in need of behaviour support.”

These school initiatives include the alternative suspension program, police liaison officers in the schools, and “positive behaviour” supports such as Lions Quest, Character Counts, and Roots of Empathy. Community programs include Impact’s New Directions and the South Asian Community Resource Office.

Three honoured for being ‘lifesavers’ Addictions Centre presents awards

Abbotsford Addictions Centre (AAC) presented its Lifesaver Award last Thursday (Nov. 22) to three women in the community. The award recognizes people who have made a difference in the life of a person struggling with addiction. It was presented as part of a ceremony that also included the Brave Heart Awards, recognizing clients who have shown courage and commitment in their own recovery and life changes. Dr. Elizabeth Watt was a recipient of the Lifesaver

Award for her contributions over the years to many of the AAC clients, while Laurie Mossey was recognized for making a difference in the community following her own loss. Mossey’s son, Tyler Miller, died of an ecstasy-related death a year ago, and Mossey has since begun the Pajama Project, which supports grieving moms. Honoured posthumously at the awards reception was Diane Robinson, a counsellor with AAC for many years who created these awards,

and passed away last year. “At Abbotsford Addictions Centre we are honoured when someone chooses to reach out to our services to make a change or to support others in making changes,” said Josie Kane, an ACC counsellor, of the awards. AAC is one of almost 130 programs and services offered by Abbotsford Community Services. It provides drug and alcohol counselling, prevention services in the community, and collaboration with other agencies.

Request to move schoolhouse

The Abbotsford board of education has received a request that the old South Poplar schoolhouse be donated to the MSA Museum Society. The society would like to relocate the old building to the Trethewey House site on Ware Street next to Mill Lake. The schoolhouse is currently located adjacent to South Poplar Traditional School at the corner of Huntingdon and Gladwin roads.

The matter will be discussed at the board of education meeting on Dec. 11. Meanwhile, written submissions are being accepted from the public until Thursday, Nov. 29. They can be sent to input@sd34. bc.ca. Delegations wanting to speak on the topic at the board meeting on Dec. 11 are asked to register with Denise Byle at denise_byle@ sd34.bc.ca or by calling 604-852-2366 (local 1241).

Mt. Lehman Elementary received the City of Character award for its Character Club project. The Character Club consists of five students in Grade 7, with principal Peggy Antifaeff and learning assistance teacher Lisa de Vries also involved. After the five students attended the City of Character Youth Symposium at Mouat, they decided they wanted to focus specifically on the “service” virtue. At the same time, the Character Club also wanted to get the entire school involved in exemplifying and learning about the other five. In order to ensure all are covered, five teachers and their students have taken on a virtue, and will each have a day where they present it to the school, whether at an assembly, through crafts or other creative ideas.

T

The Character Club wants to raise awareness to the “service” virtue by educating fellow students about it during an assembly. After researching the needs of the community, the students also decided to use the award money for materials to make jewelry and friendship pins, selling them to raise money for the children’s ward of Abbotsford Regional Hospital. At the end of the school year in June, the students will present their fundraising dollars to the pediatric ward, hoping they can help meet hospital needs. During this project, the Character Club students are learning about specialties in pediatrics, as well as the City of Character virtues.

The silence that goes beyond words… Our specially trained volunteers provide the gift of presence and unhurried time, for the sake of those who are dying or grieving the death of a loved one.

The award money will cover the cost of printing and provide newspapers to the student body. The students hope their entire school will read the paper and feel encouraged to be more involved in the community and the school.

The paper will embody all the values of the City of Character initiative. This project requires students to provide a service to their school, further illustrating one of the values.

“Nerd Day is about fighting stereotypes”

Proudly sponsored by: Rick Hansen English 11 honours students received award money for their school newspaper project. With the goal to make their school a positive and better place, the class decided to transform their online newspaper into print, hoping it would generate more readership.

“Nerd Day is where we put ourselves in others’ shoes, showing it is cool to be different from everyone else, and it is cool to study,” said student Emily Gebhart. It will

be a fun day where students dress as nerds, and listen to a presentation about respect and stereotypes. Sudents are making posters, planning witty math riddles, and creating a video that will spread Nerd Day awareness around their school.

Grade 8 anti-bullying leadership students at Chief Dan George Middle School are planning Nerd Day. Students received the award for their project focusing on the “respect” value. Vice-principal Mirjana Jurcic and teacher Amy Klassen are assisting students with event organizing. “We found a deficit in the school, and after brainstorming came up with the project,” Klassen said. Students have made their action plans and outlined steps needed to make Nerd Day possible.

The Abbotsford Youth Commission received the City of Character award for their youth council project. The youth council is composed of two leadership students from each Abbotsford high school. This year, during their October leadership retreat, where the group focused on team-building exercises, they decided to take on a community project. After much brainstorming and voting, the council decided to address bullying and its effects. Many members of the council have experienced bullying first-hand or know friends that have been bullied.

Youth Commission. The goal of the project is to impact youth in the community. It will be a year of learning about bullying, by speaking in school assemblies and giving presentations. The award money will go toward handouts and resources needed for the presentations. “We want to focus on middle school students, speaking and educating about bullying and raising awareness. The outcome we want is a trickle-down effect, and that this knowledge about bullying will progress into high school,” said Erika Moate from Bakerview Centre for Learning. The council hopes to combat all the different types of bullying that occur on a daily basis, including cyber-bullying. “We want to raise more knowledge about the City of Character’s six values. All of those values can be related to stopping bullying,” said Sebastian Muermann of W.J. Mouat.

I’M FREE Don’t grieve for me, for now I am free I’m following the path God has laid you see, I took His hand when I heard His call I turned my back and left it all; I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found my peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joys; A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss O yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee God wanted me now, He set me free.

Required for casual employment at a large care community in Abbotsford. Must be a graduate of an approved school of nursing and have current active registration with CRNBC.

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our Mom, Grandma, and GreatGrandma (Ama) on November 25, 2012, at Chilliwack General Hospital. She passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus with family at her side. Left to mourn are her children Gerry Hlookoff (Lori), Shelley Janzen (Hank) and Walter Hlookoff (Mavis). She is also survived by her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who brought such joy to her life. Each and everyone of them held a special place in her heart. She was pre-deceased by her husband Bill, her grandson Aaron, and her siblings. Mom was a prairie girl who met Dad, the love of her life, moved to the coast and raised her family in Langley and Abbotsford, B.C. After Dad’s passing, she moved to Chilliwack where she spent her final years. A mass to celebrate Mom’s life will be held at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, in Chilliwack, at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, 2012.
