Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run

A 65-year-old woman has died after being struck by a car Sunday afternoon. The victim was walking on the north shoulder of 14 Avenue near Caribou Street around 4:30 p.m. when she was hit. Police say the suspect vehicle, a blue 2007 Honda Accord, fled the scene and was located about an hour later not far from the accident site. The vehicle had black winter rims, no wheel covers.

It is believed the Accord was travelling westbound and passed another vehicle on the right before hitting the pedestrian. The victim’s name is not being released at the request of her family. Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the vehicle in the minutes leading up to it. If you have any information, contact Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-84177.

A busy time for Christmas Bureau Hundreds of families registered, donations are starting to come in

By Carol aun Mission Record

The Mission Community Services Christmas Bureau operations are in full swing this week, and donations are starting to come in, according to organizer Phil Hope. About 400 families and individuals have registered to receive a hamper so far, and Hope expects that number to double by Christmas. Every little bit of help and donation will support the Christmas Bureau in its efforts to bring some holiday cheer to those who are down on their luck this time of year. “We gratefully accept new gifts, non-perishable foods and monetary donations,” said Hope, noting tax receipts are available when you give cash. Angel trees are also going up around the community. Last Thursday’s Rotary Carol Festival brought in 500 pounds of food and about $700 for the organization. Numerous other events are being planned to benefit the Christmas Bureau this month and you can also bring your donations to the Candlelight Parade Friday. Volunteers will be walking along

the parade route collecting any contribution you would like to make. The West Coast Express Santa Trains will run Dec. 8 and Dec. 15. Bring a new toy for the Christmas Bureau in exchange for a train ticket. The train leaves Mission at 10 a.m. and will depart Vancouver’s Waterfront station at 4 p.m. Santa will be on board and at Waterfront station from 3 to 4 p.m. for photos. The Fireman’s Ride in Mission will take place Dec. 12 and Dec. 13. The route in Mission on the first night will be north of Cherry Avenue on both sides of Cedar Street. Firefighters will be travelling between Cade Bar and Stave Lake Street from 11 Avenue to Cherry Avenue on the second night collecting donations. If your house has been missed, you can drop off your donations during business hours at fire station one on Seventh Avenue. Donations can also be brought to The Record office, 33047 First Ave., and the Christmas Bureau at the Junction (between Urban Planet and the dental office) Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the MCS Christmas Bureau, call 604814-3333.

Council meeting times changing in new year More meetings will also be broadcast over internet BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Council meeting times and dates will be changing next year. Mission’s elected officials unanimously agreed to hold council meetings two times a week on the first and third weeks each month. Regular council meetings, including public hearing, will be held on Mondays at 6 p.m. and Committee of the Whole meetings, as required, are slated for Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Closed council meetings, if needed, will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday. These are not open to the public. The changes will free elected officials from council meetings two weeks of the month, allowing them more flexibility in planning other business and personal activities. The increased frequency of meetings will also make it more efficient for business. This provides better oppor-

tunities for folks requiring public hearings, said Mayor Ted Adlem. Currently, a developer could wait up to two months for Jewell a public hearing in order to proceed with their work. The change is also expected to reduce the number of council meetings next year, but staff say the exact number cannot be determined as special meetings sometimes occur. Council is also increasing the webcasting budget by $6,700 in order to broadcast all public meetings. Having council meetings mid-day during the week will make it difficult for some people to attend, said Coun. Jeff Jewell, who says streaming the meetings online will solve that problem. Currently the district has set aside $15,000 to broadcast 30 meetings for the year. The extra funds, which will come from the council contingency budget, will allow the district to show 48-50 meetings. The district will be publishing a list of scheduled meetings for 2013 soon.

Intermunicipal business licence on track for 2013 Mission is on track to introduce an inter-municipal business licence program next year. Council gave the bylaw its first three readings Monday night. Nine municipalities in the Lower Mainland are slated to participate in this one-year trial project aimed at making it easier for contractors to conduct their work across municipal boundaries, and save them time and money. A small revenue gain is also anticipated for the municipalities. Jurisdictions involved are Mission, Hope, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Township of Langley, City of Langley, Surrey, Maple Ridge, and Pitt Meadows. Multi-jurisdiction contractors can buy their local business licence each year and at the same time, purchase an inter-municipal licence, provided by the province. The licence will allow them to work in participating jurisdictions.

Charette team to be selected soon Jan. 17 is the next opportunity for the public to participate in the downtown planning process. A charette will be held on Jan. 16 and results from it will be shared at the Jan. 17 meeting. The charette team has not been selected yet, but a decision will

be made shortly, according to a report to council Monday night. There has been a lot of interest and the applicants are being reviewed. Council hopes to have a voice for every age group participating.

Annual festival wants to use field Mission council is supporting a request from Rockin River Music Festival to use a hay field in Silverdale for its next concert, and will be sending a letter to the Agricultural Land Commission on its behalf. This organization is now hugely successful and has never asked the district for any funding, said Coun. Jenny Stevens, who asked council to endorse the application. The multi-day concert would not interrupt with hay production operations because it would have already been harvested at the time, she added. Council unanimously supported the motion. “This is a business enterprise,” said Mayor Ted Adlem, noting organizers took a financial loss in the beginning, but now need to expand. “If they can’t expand, they will have to leave the community. This isn’t an economic driver we want to lose.”

Hawes speaks out against tax changes put forward by gov’t BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Abbotsford-Mission’s MLA is speaking out after deputy premier Rich Coleman announced a taxation change that would aid smaller breweries. Last Wednesday, Hawes criticized the BC Liberal government of essentially giving a subsidy and “big market advantage” to one company, Pacific Western Brewers (PWB), which he asserts is no longer a smaller brewery. “This is fundamentally unfair,” said the backbench, three-term MLA who does not plan to run in the May 2013 election. “I don’t know why we’re doing this. I think this should be pulled back and changed.” Coleman is the minister responsible for liquor policy and put forward last Wednesday a new regulation which calls for the mark-up rate breweries pay to increase incrementally between annual production of 160,000 and 300,000 hectolitres. Smaller breweries are taxed at a lower rate than big commercial operations, until this week paying a flat tax of $1.75 per litre of bottled or canned beer and $1.20 per litre of draft. That rate applied until annual production reached 160,000 hectolitres, at which

Pacific Western Brewers produces Cariboo Genuine Draft.

point the higher commercial brewery rate applied to the entire production run. Reaching that threshold would trigger a tax increase in the millions of dollars, and PWB of Prince George was the only B.C. producer getting close, partly from increased sales of its low-priced line of Cariboo beers. The company asserted if the rules hadn’t been changed, that it would have had to shut down for a month. Coleman said Monday the new sys-

tem creates a sliding scale of tax rates for smaller brewers that takes them up to the commercial tax rate of big breweries when they reach 300,000 hectolitres of annual production. This is said to benefit seven B.C.based breweries, according to government. The pending change prompted reaction from the National Breweries Association which in turn contacted MLAs. - with files from Tom Fletcher and Langley Times

Marijuana tax estimates based NDP urges on doubling price of product Fraser Health to buy locally farmed food Chasing too much revenue may keep black market alive By Jeff Nagel Black Press

Taxing B.C. bud could generate hundreds of millions of dollars in provincial government revenue each year, but likely not billions, a new study suggests. The study, prepared by UBC and SFU researchers and published in the International Journal of Drug Policy, estimates B.C. marijuana users spend roughly $500 million a year on pot. The Stop The Violence campaign to legalize marijuana has used that figure to infer B.C. could reap $2.5 billion in revenue over five years by heavily taxing the drug. That would mean at least doubling the current price of weed to generate the same amount in tax if it were sold legally in

High taxes on marijuana would keep door open for organized crime, according to UFV criminologist. RECORD FILE PHOTO

the province — a scenario some observers have warned could keep the gang-controlled black market alive and well. Washington State, with a similar sized potsmoking population, has come up with its own estimate of nearly $2 billion in government revenue over five years from taxing marijuana. Voters there

approved legalization in a referendum in November. Its planned 25-per-cent tax would be levied not just once but on each wholesale and retail sale, and other state and local taxes and licensing fees would also apply. Kevin Hollett, a spokesman for Stop The Violence, defended the idea of tax levels that

sharply drive up the price, noting taxes make up 81 per cent of the retail price of tobacco. But SFU criminology professor Neil Boyd said governments hungry to plunder the pot market should be careful how much money they try to extract. “The current price on the black market of marijuana is $200 to $300

an ounce,” he said. “If people who are going to tax and regulate it were going to sell it for $600, you’re still going to have a black market.” Another criminologist, Daryl Plecas, has also argued high taxes just keep the door open for organized crime. He said the main market for gangs would go up in smoke if pot was made legal for anyone to grow and possess and government made no attempt to tax or regulate it, but added that only works if consistent laws are applied across North America. Boyd said he believes governments could tap a major flow of revenue under legalization without driving too much trade underground. Alcohol is heavily taxed, he noted, but there’s no significant black market. The number of pot grow-ops in B.C. is thought to have nearly doubled between 2003 and 2010.

Liberal nomination meeting tonight Mission’s Tony Luck will be competing for the BC Liberal Party nomination in the Abbotsford-Mission riding tonight. Luck currently sits as a firstterm councillor with the District of Mission, and works as a financial advisor in Abbotsford. Previously, he worked for BC Hydro as a business analyst before switching careers in 2006. A longtime resident of the

area, Luck said after witnessing the challenges faced by his own children and the young families with whom he works, he’s a strong supporter of Christy Clark’s Families First agenda. “I have worked with many people who are working hard to provide for their families,” he said. “A return to higher taxes and a bigger government is not the

solution. Families are the backbone of our province and it is incumbent on us to provide the opportunities for them to prosper.” Luck said that his record of financial accountability is strong, given his work with the Abbotsford Ratepayers Association which works hard to be a voice for responsible governance, especially during

the Plan A debate. The burgeoning politician is part of the Citizens for Responsible Municipal Government slate that won last year’s Mission municipal election, and helped bring in a zero per cent tax increase in 2011. “We were told that it couldn’t be done. Some people talk about fiscal responsibility, others do it,” he said in a press release.

Mission part of joint tourism strategy The north side of the Fraser River will see its tourism strength increased next year when Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge and Mission launch a combined tourism strategy. The project will involve developing consistent signage throughout the area and take place over a 12- to 18-month period, a Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training spokesman said Thursday. Included in the strategy will be an asset inventory, signage audit and development of a regional tourism brand, funded by the ministry. About 50 people in government and industry met at the Randy Herman centre in Maple Ridge Wednesday, to work on

the strategy, part of the B.C. Jobs Plan pilot project launched a year ago. “We’ve made some progress with some of the different private projects,” said MLA Marc Dalton. That happened earlier this year when improvements were made to the Florence Lake Forest Service Road, in the Mission Interpretive Forest, near Zajac Children’s Ranch on Stave Lake near the Maple Ridge-Mission border. That latest road project cost about $500,000 said Dalton, while adding some campsites in the area at a cost of about $130,000 also will increase the tourism potential. The provincial government

paid for those improvements as part of the pilot project which seeks to identify high job-generating projects that can be started with minimal or no startup cash. “We want to make it more of a tourism, recreation area for Lower Mainland residents,” Dalton said. The tourism strategy is one of nine possible job generating projects being considered by Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge and Mission as part of Invest North Fraser. Others being considered are agri-food distribution hub; a green building technologies centre; a working farm school; a business innovation accelerator; and an eco-industrial park. Also considered as an economic kickstarter was the recent

decision by the B.C. Technology Industry Association to choose Maple Ridge and Surrey as locations for Centre4Growth program. The initiative is intended to help high-tech start up companies by providing guidance through a CEO-In-Residenceplan. In addition to advice from CEOs, entrepreneurs can access growth workshops, private business clinics with experts, introductions to potential investors and customers, as well as an ELibrary of resources and tools. The potential of Pitt Meadows Regional Airport was also discussed. “It just takes effort and time,” Dalton said of the process.

By RoBeRt fReemaN Black Press

The NDP is calling on the B.C. government to step into food procurement by hospitals that neighbour on key food-producing areas of the province like the Fraser Valley. NDP Leader Adrian Dix said in a news release that an FOI request sent to the Fraser Health Authority showed “there are no formal policies in place that involve the provincial government using its purchasing power to promote locally grown food in area hospitals, though they neighbor key areas of the Agricultural Land Reserve.” However, the FHA’s food purchases are handled by the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority (VCHA). “We don’t track the locally sourced food items simply because they are seasonal and we always buy in season through our contractor Gordon Food Services,” said Anna Marie D’Angelo, senior media relations officer at the VCHA. She said local menu items served fresh include fruits and vegetables such as carrots, apples, peaches, blueberries and all the berries, green beans and broccoli. Chilliwack MLA John Les, a dairy farmer turned politician, said it’s all very well to encourage individuals to buy locally, but the quantities required by health authorities and the seasonal nature of produce makes it a more complicated matter. “I’m not aware of any producer in the Fraser Valley who is geared up or able to produce food in the way or in those quantities and at the price health authorities can afford,” he said.

And at the end of the day, he said, food purchases come out of the health care budget. “Health authorities are trying to focus as much of their budget as they can on patient care,” he said. Les called the NDP plan “simplistic” because “when the rubber of really hits the road, it’s not that easy” for hospitals to buy locally. However, Dix said 33 states and provinces, including Ontario, already have policies in place for government-funded bodies to use their institutional buying power to support and promote locally grown and processed food. “That’s what we’d like to see more of,” Dix told Black Press, adding that the FHA’s contractual agreements don’t preclude it from buying locally. “There’s clearly room to buy local to improve the quality of food.” According to a recent survey of acute care patients in the FHA, only 54 percent of those who responded found the food served in area hospitals satisfactory. D’Angelo suggested that’s not surprising since the sodium content of hospital food is reduced for health reasons. “Most people’s diets are too high in sodium, so when they come to hospital they feel the food is bland,” she said. “We are always adjusting our menus to support the better health of patients and residents, and buying local, when we are able, is one of the ways we do this,” she said. The FHA serves about five million meals to patients and residents every year, she said, spending about $9.7 million.

OPINION

To cover or not

News media usually avoid writing about suicides but still reported extensively on the death of Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd and her name continues to be mentioned in stories dealing with youth mental health, online luring and bullying. Obviously, there is huge public interest in her story but many — including Vancouver School Board trustees — say the publicity surrounding Todd’s suicide creates risk for vulnerable youth. It glamourizes suicide, they say, resulting in more suicidal thoughts among young people. Concern is justified. According to BC Coroner statistics, on average in a year, 17 kids under 19 kill themselves in B.C. but there are huge swings; in 2009 there were 11 child and youth suicides, in 2010 there were 31. For the most part, traditional media typically selfcensor when it comes to suicide reporting out of sensitivity to the family, concerns about copycats and to stay within the bounds of taste. But Amanda Todd’s story drew a different level of coverage because it was largely told by social media, whose audience and contributors are more open to shocking, revelatory and graphic news. Traditional media had no choice but to follow the story once it had gone viral but for the most part didn’t reveal details about her death and made sure coverage included details on resources available to those experiencing problems. Eventually, the interest will wane in the wider world and those issues won’t go away without effort and even, sometimes, media attention. Yes, there is a risk that other youth will want to emulate her. But there is much to gain by bringing suicide out of the shadows into the public consciousness if it results in more support for struggling kids and their families. - The Tri-City News

Will truth die on Deficit Hill? W hatever happens in the provincial election five months from now, taxpayers should insist that it be the last spring vote. Now I know this isn’t sexy like the horse race of popularity polls so loved by the TV news. But integrity of public financial information is the next vital step in democratic reform, even more important than scheduled election dates. And the B.C. tradition of tabling untested election budgets, shutting down the legislature and firing up the campaign buses, has to end. The BC Liberals are on track to surpass the NDP on fudge-it budgets, having put millions into TV ads that insist the 2013 budget will struggle into the black. This is the hill Christy Clark has chosen to die on. Glen Clark set the modern bar with his 1996 election budget. After a run of red ink, it conjured a tidy little surplus that helped the NDP squeak out a win over the plaid-shirted Gordon Campbell. Campbell’s noisy exit had

Q

its roots in his 2009 fudge-it budget, which clung to an outdated $500-million deficit forecast that had already melted down along with banks, auto makers and U.S. real estate. After the election, British Columbians found out we were really $2.8 billion in the red. Not one to waste a good crisis, Campbell ordered the harmonized sales tax. Now Premier Clark and Finance Minister Mike de Jong are proposing to balance the budget and shut down the HST money machine. To Clark gave a speech in Coquitlam the day before last week’s budget update, warning it “won’t be pretty.” And it’s not. In September the current-year deficit forecast jumped above $1 billion, largely due to a glut of natural gas. The latest update pushed it near $1.5 billion. Natural gas royalties are bumping along the bottom,

no big change there. But now coal prices and shipments are down, and a slow real estate market has pinched the flow of cash from Bill Vander Zalm’s legacy, the property purchase tax. I erred in a previous column, saying this year’s deficit is partly due to a staged repayment of federal HST transition money. Not so. That entire $1.6 billion was booked in last year’s budget, pushing that deficit to a record $3 billion. This means the current $1.5 billion bleeder is based strictly on current revenues, m debt servicing and spending. So how is this sucking chest wound going to suddenly heal next spring? De Jong provided an early version of his answer in his September financial statement. Amazingly, it projects a recovery of more than $100 million in natural gas royalties next year. Hmmm.

are still years away, and the U.S., our only current energy export customer, is developing its own huge shale gas and shale oil reserves. In another forecasted miracle, sales tax revenue is expected to dip by a mere $120 million as the old provincial sales tax returns next year. In 2014 it is projected to bounce right back to where it is today, around $6.1 billion. That’s odd. When former finance minister Kevin Falcon announced the transition back to PST last May, he described annual revenue loss of about $500 million the first year, and more than $600 million the next. Granted, business investment credits and HST rebates to the poor also end, saving the government a pile of cash as this significant tax reform dies. But it still looks like another fudge-it budget, designed to help another premier avoid the political graveyard at the foot of Deficit Hill.

I absolutely support what letter writer Kevin Francis had to say about how the government must not be so rigid in looking at the bottom line as it is the duty of all governments to consider the welfare of the citizens. The mania of austerity coming out of the U.S., infecting governments around the world including the Reform/Alliance government of Stephen Harper, is not the way to prosperity as its believers claim. When I was at university I was taught a better system of economics, the Keynesian. In its simplest form it calls for

the government to spend money, and run a deficit if need be, to keep the economy and employment levels healthy — and it worked for generations until the trickle down economy of former U.S. president Ronald Reagan showed up. Great Britain has followed the same insane, self-defeating austerity policies of the Republicans and has achieved a second recession and growing unemployment for its efforts. Social unrest is spreading across Europe because of the austerity mantra. Yet people here can still be counted on to vote against their own interests and support the proven folly of austerity and buckling to the demands of the richest CEOs. They buy into the

idea that any support from government is somehow misguided entitlement, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. You want true greed, look at the companies actively working to beggar the middle class on both sides of the border. Those same companies who demand that working people and the poorest among us take cuts while they get billions in government handouts to improve their bottom line at the cost of our impoverishment as a society. You cannot bring about prosperity for the majority if you impoverish working people. You cannot maintain a fair and equitable society on McJobs, poverty wages, and part-time employment with no benefits.

Cohen addressed salmon poaching Editor, The Record: Re: Salmon mystery far from solved (B.C. Views, Nov. 15). Discussing the Cohen Commission report on the decline of Fraser River sockeye salmon runs, Tom Fletcher writes, “Poaching on the Fraser? Cohen didn’t get around to that.” This is inaccurate. In volume two, chapter two, page 35, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Bruce Cohen states: “I am also concerned that Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) does not estimate illegal or unauthorized catch to use in its management of the fishery. This information could be helpful to fisheries managers in a variety of ways — for example, in directing enforcement activities, allocating fishing access, and providing post-season accounting of returns.” Justice Cohen goes on to say: “I accept the evidence of those witnesses who said that conservation is best served by proactively preventing fish

from being taken illegally from the water. Preventing the illegal taking of fish will likely involve a combination of community education and stewardship and on-the-ground enforcement activities. “Effective catch monitoring of all sectors is an important component of this plan, as is the realistic allocation and identification of food, social and ceremonial fish to Aboriginal groups. I do not want to suggest that afterthe-fact investigations are not also important; they are. Indeed, enforcement activities aimed at illegal sales may provide an effective deterrent to taking fish illegally out of the water.” On page 54 of the same volume: “In my view, preventing the illegal taking of fish should be the priority consideration when DFO is faced with focusing its resource expenditure within any of the three pillars.” John Newcomb Victoria

Many good deeds go unreported Editor, The Record: I wish to offer my heartfelt thanks to the person who found my purse in the shopping

cart at Superstore and returned it to the service counter. We are constantly hearing about the crimi-

nal acts of many in our midst, but the good deeds go unreported. Evelyn Boon Mission

When upward social mobility ends, so does our hope in the future. People used to say they wanted a better future for their children. Who says that anymore? No one I know. You don’t have to be a socialist, just someone like myself with a social conscience and a sense of economic reality who doesn’t deal in the falsehoods of austerity and tax-cuts for the wealthiest corporations. But you do have to be aware that Harper is fighting the next campaign now, so don’t wait until the next election writ is dropped to get informed and involved. Or only have yourself to blame if you wait. Robert T. Rock Mission

Editor, The Record: Re: Traditional school forum draws about 50 people, Nov. 22 edition. I find it interesting that the parents at this forum almost universally stated that uniforms were at the top of their list of expectations. I am very pleased to discover, after reading this article, that because I operate a classroom that has a high level of accountability for actions and expects a high level of respect shown for each other, I must be in a fairly “traditional” classroom. My colleagues are of a very similar “school of thought” in expecting accountability and respect, so I can only conclude that I am in a “traditional school.” Ooops! Except for the uniform. If dressing my students, and perhaps even myself, all the same would complete the traditional stereotype bill, then let’s go shopping! The fact is, however, that what you put on in the morning does not equal who you are inside and how you treat others. I come from a small town where the traditional school students indeed wore uniforms, and an equal share of their students were amongst the small minority of rulebreakers that our town had. Their uniforms didn’t stop them from being who they really were inside. I am proud to teach at Christine Morrison Elementary School, where we do our best to uphold our own “traditional” values. In my room, our five rules sum up our version of “traditional:” be gentle, be kind, be polite, be tidy, be honest. “Be Dressed Like Each Other” might make choosing one’s wardrobe easier, but it doesn’t have anything to do with respect, which I feel is the best tradition of all.

Quality hockey ready for fans at Leisure Centre

Editor, The Record: I think I had a eureka moment the other day. Walking past the Mission Leisure Centre on the east side, I happened to look through one of the windows. There, on one of the two ice surfaces were young boys skating about, hockey sticks in their gloved hands. I stopped for a few minutes and watched the action. Skating, stick handling, passing — they had it all. They could go forward, backward — even do pirouettes. Plus they wore smart jerseys, with numbers and hockey pants and socks. Then it hit me. What was I missing? After all, outside of the fact that they were a little smaller than the average Canuck or Boston Bruin, they looked just as impressive — at a fraction of the cost. Maybe, next time, I won’t just walk by. I might even go inside the rink and ask if I can watch these young fellows. Perhaps one or two of them may even turn out to be a future NHL star — if the NHL doesn’t totally disappear from the ever-diminishing image at the far end of my telescope. Walter Schmur Mission

Mission needs to catch up to modern world Editor, The Record: I read recently about attempts to make the downtown more inviting. Sounds like an awesome idea. I moved to Mission from Victoria, and have lived in many other communities. One of the things I find remarkable here is the lack of bike trails and walking paths. There are few, if any, places to lock one’s bike, and no sidewalks or paths that would allow one to walk from downtown to the Junction. If you want to walk from downtown to the little walk way at Harbour Avenue, there is no sidewalk and no place to safely cross the road. There are no bike paths either. Painting a bike on a road does not count.

It is not difficult to keep bears away Editor, The Record: The District of Mission spent thousands of dollars erecting signs stating that we live in bear country. The province spent more money hiring bear aware co-ordinators to educate people about bears. Why don’t people understand? The residents of two houses had put their garbage out, along with Rot Pots and pumpkins the night before pick-up. The bears came up from the ravine and made a big mess. It’s not just the trash strewn about that concerns me, it’s the bears lives. We live in their territory and we have to get along with them. They have every right to live. Come on, people, get with the program. Stop being so lazy, put your garbage out the day of collection and not before. Susan Stevens Mission

Until you encourage people to get out of their cars, there will be no vibrant downtown. In Victoria they have successfully pushed street people, drug addicts, and prostitutes from areas they used to frequent. They also have a wonderful, world-class bike trail system. A lot of cities have, so it is very possible. Sadly, I see shops open and then have to close in the downtown area. I don’t plan to stop going downtown because I am not afraid of the people down there. I’ll just keep riding and walking, waiting patiently for the day Mission catches up with the modern world.

Use of rainwater wins Mission, Abby award A system that uses the city’s ample supply of rainwater to make ice at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre has received provincial recognition. The City of Abbotsford, together with the District of Mission, has accepted a Union of BC Municipalities award in leadership and innovation for the project. “We are pleased to be recognized as leaders on this environmental project,” said Mayor Bruce Banman. “And we are equally pleased to share

this project with our longtime partner in water initiatives, the District of Mission.” The award was part of a joint Abbotsford/Mission Water and Sewer Commission project that installed a rainwater harvesting system at the rink. It is the first professional indoor ice arena in the world to use harvested rainwater to make ice. The estimated municipal water savings is 830,000L per hockey season. The water tanks are stored in the boiler room and fed through an in-

ternal gutter system. The water is pre-heated from ambient heat exchange in the boiler room, further reducing energy use. The estimated energy

savings of this system are approximately $3,200 per year. The project costs were shared by partners Barr Plastics, Saxon Mechani-

cal, the AESC, Tiger Purification Systems, Excalibur Electric and the water and sewer commission. The success of the

project has resulted in the installation of rainwater harvesting systems in other parts of the communities. An 11,000-litre tank was installed for

andlelight

fleet vehicle washing; and an 11,000-litre tank was installed at Heritage Park in Mission and tied into the drip irrigation system for the rose garden.

Clark talks tough on spending By Tom FleTcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark previewed the B.C. government’s next budget update Nov. 27 with a speech to a Coquitlam business audience stressing the virtues of balanc-

ing the budget for next year. Clark’s speech to the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce came as Finance Minister Mike de Jong prepared to present the second quarter update of the current budget last Wednesday at the legis-

lature. His first-quarter update in September had the province on track for a $1.14 billion deficit for the fiscal year ending in March. Taking questions after the speech, Clark wouldn’t rule out tax increases of all kinds when

the next budget is presented in February. She emphasized the need to control personal taxes, and spending controls for government. “No, we will not cut education, and no, we will not cut health care,” Clark said, leaving options open for spending cuts in other areas. With the February budget setting the stage for the May 2013 election, Clark took direct aim at NDP leader Adrian Dix’s recent vow to repeal B.C.’s balanced budget law. “If you don’t have a balanced budget law, then deficits become the rule and balanced budgets become the exception,” Clark said. Dix said recently his policy as premier would be to balance budgets over a four-year “business cycle,” because the BC Liberal era has shown that governments can’t cut spending quickly enough when world resource markets take a sudden downturn. The B.C. government has achieved balanced budgets in only five of the 11 years of BC Liberal rule, with the premier and cabinet ministers subject to a 10 per cent pay cut under the balanced budget law. The current deficit is larger due to repayment of the federal government’s $1.6 billion transition fund for the harmonized sales tax. In September, de Jong raised the deficit projection by $173 million, largely due to lower prices and sales for B.C. natural gas.

B.C. deficit forecast grows again Black Press

The B.C. government has increased its deficit forecast for the second time this fiscal year, citing lower revenues from coal sales and continuing low price and sales volume of natural gas. A slow real estate market has also reduced provincial revenues from the property purchase tax and provincial property tax for schools, Finance Minister Mike de Jong said Nov. 28. De Jong released the finance ministry’s second-quarter update, forecasting that the deficit will reach $1.47 billion by the fiscal year end of March 31. That’s an increase of $328 million from the first-quarter forecast released in

September. The September deficit forecast was up $173 million from last February’s budget, attributed mostly to a drop in natural gas prices and sales volume due to oversupply in the North American market. The finance ministry says natural gas prices and revenues have been flat since September, but coal and property tax revenue are driving a drop of $202 million in expected revenues to the provincial treasury since then. De Jong said despite the slide in revenues, he is still on track to balance the 2013 budget when he presents it in the legislature Feb. 19. That promise is also featured in the government’s current round of advertising to promote its jobs plan. Speaking for the NDP opposi-

tion, MLA Carole James said she does not believe the next budget will be truly balanced, despite a plan to sell government assets that she likened to “selling the family farm.” James noted that the forecast deficit has grown by about 50 per cent since the last budget, and the BC Liberal claims of strict spending control are contradicted by spending $15 million on ads that mainly promote the BC Liberal party in the run-up to the May election. In September, De Jong announced a government-wide hiring freeze and restrictions on travel and other discretionary government spending. Last Wednesday he said $176 million in savings have been identified.

New tax rules will benefit consumers 2545 McCallum Road, Abbotsford 604.853.9192

even behind closed doors, makes news. The other reason was that Pacific Western Brewery, the Prince George brewery which prompted a new look at the tax policy, because of a potentially huge tax bill it was facing, is a supporter of both the Liberals and Coleman. Owner Kazuko Komatsu donated two oneweek stays in the Bahamas to a recent Coleman fundraiser. They were valued at over $27,000. Coleman said the donation was returned. The new regulation, issued last Monday, will see the tax

rate rise incrementally for breweries that produce between 160,000 and 300,000 hectolitres annually. However, there will be no big back tax bill once a brewery reaches a certain threshold. This was going to cost Pacific Western about $9.5 million, and the company was thinking of stopping production until year-end to avoid the huge tax bill. The lower tax rate was initially brought in by the Social Credit government in 1988. It was meant to encourage small breweries, and it has been a great success. B.C. has a thriv-

ing microbrewery business, and the wide variety of products on the market is a far cry from the days when almost all the beer sold here came from three large plants — and almost all of it tasted the same. This has in turn helped to build up other businesses, notably restaurants. I visited a thriving Langley pub, Town Hall Pub, last week and its business is booming. One reason is the wide variety of craft beers it sells. An emphasis on local products and unique flavours is a worldwide trend and the B.C.

microbrewery industry is a critical component of its success here. The same can be said for the wine industry. It appears that the new regulation will favourably help seven smaller breweries to transition into larger businesses, employing more people, paying more taxes and brewing more distinct products. That seems to me to be a win-win situation for the provincial government and the breweries, and it certainly benefits consumers. Frank Bucholtz is the editor of The Langley Times.

One is that a group of Liberal MLAs were upset with a regulation published by the government office responsible for the tax, which is under the supervision of Energy Minister Rich Coleman.

Food Bank work continuing By Jason Roessle Mission Record

Another fundraising push is on by organizers for the St. Joseph’s Food Bank to bring the building to lock up. “We’re also working on connecting services to the building,” said Ron Leger, one of the main individuals behind the fundraising campaign. At this point, said Leger, an additional $50,000 is needed to bring the project to lock up, which is where the roof, windows, doors, siding, etc., is installed. The interior work then commences, and this is estimated to ring up a $92,500 tab. The building is located on Seventh Avenue, adjacent to the St. Joseph’s

Catholic Church. A food bank operated out of the basement of the church for about 15 years, but demand grew to the point where the food bank needed a free-standing building. The structure will be a two-storey building, designed to look like a small church, with 1,860 square feet on each floor. The foundation costs increased, said Leger, and a parking lot is now located below the site. An additional $15,000 of aggregate was donated by Mainland and Lafarge, bringing that total donation to $24,000, he said. Trucking costs went up $6,000, plus a few others, which has put a completed estimate at

$400,000 compared to the budgeted $340,000. A number of community members, businesses and service organizations have contributed to the project, and so far, $125,000 have been received, while $54,000 of in-kind donations were provided, and $63,000 promised. Quick facts • In 1996, the food bank began to grow, adding four new volunteers to assist the two original volunteers. • In 2008, the food bank became a member of the B.C. Food Bank Association; St. Joseph’s became the registered food bank for Mission. • For the 12 month period ending July 31, 2012, $701,400 worth of food was distributed in

the community at a cost of $13,000. 3,340 clients were served. • Since 2008, it became apparent that the church basement was not a practical location to distribute food as it is designed and used for meetings, receptions and gatherings. • In December 2009, the Archbishop of Vancouver agreed in principle to allow construction of a food bank facility on land located at St. Joseph’s Parish. • In June 2011, the municipality approved the building plans. • In September 2011, the final site preparation started; the foundation was completed in January 2012, and electricity was hooked up July 2012.

Their musical journey so far has been slow, but enjoyable. Guldemond hopes to put out more records and see the au-

dience expand. “It would be nice to finally be in a place to control everything,” he said. For now, the band is in charge of their music. Their newest album, The Stix, is the most lyrically cohesive work they’ve put together. The message is about technology and the fall of simplicity and the natural world,

Mother Mother is bringing the sounds of their new album, The Stix, to the Clarke Theatre next week. The band from Vancouver started their tour in Nova Scotia last month and will be playing in Mission for the first time on Dec. 12. Band leader Ryan Guldemond told The Record there are a lot of new elements to the show that they’ve had to rehearse. Most of it is technical, he said, and three out of the five members are learning new instruments. Over the years, Mother Mother’s music has become harder and more rock driven. The earlier stuff was influenced more by blues, country and jazz, said Guldemond, 29, who started the band with his sister, Molly, eight years ago. Guldemond wanted to be in a band ever since he was a child, but thought it was just a pipe dream until he enrolled in music school and then got into song writing when he was in his early 20s. Things just fell in place from there. Molly was studying fine arts and graphic arts, and when her brother moved in with her, she discovered new sounds and connected on another level. “Anyone who meets Molly is blown away by her voice,” said Guldemond, who also sings in the band, and encouraged Molly to be involved. “It was very cool how

Puss in Boots, The Panto put on by ONTS Opening Nite Theatre Society’s Puss in Boots, The Panto! is back for another season. The show will open Dec. 14 in what is being billed as one of the funniest and most entertaining parties of the holidays. Panto is a form of theatre that involves a fairy tale storyline, slapstick humour, music, audience participation, and crazy costumes. The panto’s multi-layered approach is as entertaining for adults as it is for children of all ages. This year’s extravaganza has Fairy Nice and Fairy Naughty landing in ancient France, and you can bet that there will be plenty of trouble. Poor Andy and his Mum are poverty-stricken and losing hope when the family cat decides that it’s time he took charge and make them millionaires. Puss plots marrying off Andy to the beautiful, yet cynical Princess Zola, but not without a few bumps along the way. Will true love win through? Will Puss get to live in the “lap” of luxury for the rest of his life, or will this be the year that Fairy Naughty finally gets her evil way? Written and directed by Camille Knight, Puss in Boots, The Panto! stars some familiar faces as well as newcomers. Susan Dearing reprises her role as Fairy Naughty, and Jennie Bice returns as the amiable Fairy Nice and leads the musical team along with Mahara Sinclaire and Gary Crawford.

What’s Happening Silent auction precedes Christmas benefit concert in Mission

The holiday spirit will fill the air, and smiles will be on every face at the Clarke Theatre Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. for the 13th annual Christmas At The Clarke Benefit Concert. Known as one of the best Christmas shows in the Lower Mainland, this concert provides an inexpensive, fun-filled night for the whole family. Get your tickets right away for this generally sold-out event. Kenny Hess, one of the nation’s finest country singers and songwriters will be back this year to entertain the audience with that rich voice and wonderful stage presence that makes him one of the most sought after country performers in Canada. The band Horizon is performing this year. Comprised of five talented and entertaining musicians from the Fraser Valley: Rick Noel, Fred Schmidt, Asger Hansen, Johan Worst and Scott Boyes, and featuring vocalists Crystal Hicks, Chantelle Davidson and Dana Wright, Horizon performs a wide range of favourite Christmas songs with touches of blues, jazz and rock and roll. Rob Hess is also performing again this year and may well bring the audience to their feet once more with the vocal range, and quiet and warm stage presence that makes him a favourite wherever he performs. The vocal group Halo will be accompanying Rob, and together they will fill the theatre with their renditions of some of the best Christmas songs ever written. Rounding out the show will be two groups of very talented young people from two local high schools. The Hatzic Secondary School Jazz Band and the Heritage Park Secondary School Choir will be there to open the show and to fill the lobby with carols as people arrive. Get your tickets early, come and enjoy helping two community organizations: the Christmas Bureau and the shelter programs operated by the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley, which benefit from the money raised by the event. The doors to the building open at 6 p.m., so people can drop off the donations they bring for the food bank. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Volunteer opportunities • Mission Literacy in Motion is recruiting for its adult literacy, ESL and Reading Buddies oneon-one and group tutoring programs. Free training and ongoing support provided. Commitment is one or two hours a week. For more info call 604-820-2027 or e-mail cloc@ literacyinmotion.org. • Join our team. Mission Healthcare Auxiliary is looking for volunteers to work at The Cottage Thrift Store. For more info please contact Gertrude at 778880-0467.

Mission’s Kenny Hess will once again headline this year’s benefit concert. RECORD FILE PHOTO

As the HPSS choir’s voices softly fill the lobby with Christmas carols, everyone can do a little Christmas shopping at the silent auction, bidding on items donated by many local businesses. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and $10 for children. People are asked to bring donations to the food bank as well. Tickets

are available in Mission at London Drugs, Rex Cox Men’s Wear, Murdoch’s Book Shoppe, Shoppers Drug Mart, Prospera Credit Union and Fraser Valley Building Supplies. They are also available in Abbotsford at House of James. For group tickets or for more information call the Clarke Theatre at 604-820-3961 or John Agnew at 604-217-1863.

The View from Space Seeing images of Earth from space can induce a variety of powerful feelings, from awe over its beauty to fear over its apparent fragility. Ours is a living, breathing planet and at least so far, we haven’t found any others where life occurs. Seeing pictures of the Earth from outer space is one thing; actually seeing the Earth from outer space is almost invariably a life-changing experience. Consider what various astronauts have said about their view of our planet from space. James Irwin remarked “That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man, has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God.” Edgar Mitchell observed “Suddenly, from behind the rim of the moon, in long, slow-motion moments of immense majesty, there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel . . . rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It takes more than a moment to fully realize this is Earth . . . home.” Mitchell says elsewhere that “My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity.” Finally, consider what Taylor Wang felt upon seeing Earth from space: “A Chinese tale tells of some men sent to harm a young girl who, upon seeing her beauty, become her protectors rather than her violators. That’s how I felt seeing the Earth for the first time. I could not help but love and cherish her.” Earth is our home and is entrusted to us for its protection. “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19: 1

Junior varsity wins provincial title By Jason Roessle Mission Record

Mission secondary’s junior varsity team won the provincial championship Saturday morning at BC Place Stadium over the Abbotsford Panthers. ROD WIENS PHOTO

KENT OUTDOORS CHRISTMAS SALE & APPRECIATION DAY

It was deju vu all over again, but reversed. Mission Secondary School’s junior varsity football squad beat the Abbotsford Panthers in the Subway Bowl last Saturday, handing them a 20-18 loss and earning the provincial championship title. Later in the day, the varsity team faced off against the South Delta Sun Devils and lost. Last year, it was the opposite, with varsity taking top spot, and the JVs earning second. This marked the fourth straight year the JVs have played in the finals, said coach John Kapty, who along with coaches Glen Roberts and Ray Jung have now earned three titles. “It feels great. Just as

good as the first time.” The Panthers had defeated Mission 20-18 earlier in the season in league play, and was the expected tough opponent for which the Roadrunners had been preparing, said Kapty. It was tied 8-8 at the half, but the turning point came after an unfortunate injury to Abbotsford’s quarterback. “They seemed to deflate,” he said, and the Panthers struggled offensively. Mission quarterback Jesse Walker scored all three touchdowns and earned most valuable player honours. Bryce Fillion rushed for 101 “difficult” yards in the game. “We didn’t have Bryce last time we played Abby,” said Kapty. “We knew he would help our offense break through.

He played a tough, spirited game.” Kane Freestone-Smith was named best lineman for his efforts on both sides of the ball that included a tackle in the end zone for a two-point safety. Bicky Gill was the top receiver with five catches for 70 yards. Linebacker Peter Kulba led the defense with 13 tackles, and Dayton Robertson had nine tackles. Landon Rayburn had two interceptions defensively and Danny Jung had one. “It’s so great to the see the kids get rewarded for their hard work. We ask a lot of our players on and off the field,” Kapty said. “This team continued to work hard and get better. That’s the formula for success in JV

Varsity The season-long drive for the second consecutive varsity provincial championship started to unravel quickly in the fourth quarter last Saturday, according to head coach Kevin Watrin. “It was a hard-fought championship game, and the score was not indicative of the game,” he said about the 31-14 loss. The Roadrunners started slow, falling behind 11-0 in the first quarter, but scored in the second, going into the half trailing 11-7. The senior team made a stab at a comeback and took the lead early in the third, 17-14, before a series of fourth quarter turnovers resulted in a “quick inflation of the score, said Watrin. This included South Delta blocking a punt, then the Roadrunners fumbling the kickoff which allowed the Sun Devils to put another touchdown on the score card. Watrin noted he had a number of players playing both junior varsity and varsity this year, and
