Proposed Regulation of Audible Bird Scare Devices

Snow & Ice Control

The City’s Farm Bylaw Select Committee is seeking input on a proposed bylaw to regulate audible bird scare devices (e.g. propane cannons). To view the bylaw, and background information, go on-line at www.abbotsford.ca. Please forward your comments, no later than February 8, 2013, to Gordon Ferguson, Manager, Bylaw Enforcement, at gferguson@abbotsford.ca or use the form available on-line.

Agricultural Advisory Committee The City has several different committees providing recommendations on a wide scope of programs, policies and services ranging from agriculture to parks; to heritage and housing. The commitment and dedication of community volunteers assists Council in the governance of the City and makes Abbotsford a community where people choose to live, work and play. Currently, the City is looking for applications to fill farm industry representative vacancies on its Agricultural Advisory Committee.

The goal of the City’s Snow and Ice Control Program is to maintain travel routes where there is snow and ice on roads and restore mobility for the traveling public. The City will work 24 hour days until the snow ends and first priority routes are passable for travel. For additional information on our snow removal program, please visit www.abbotsford. ca/snowandice or call the Engineering Operations Division at 604-853-5485.

Reminder to Property Owners — Sidewalk Snow Removal

Under the City’s Good Neighbour Bylaw, residents must remove snow and ice from sidewalks and footpaths bordering their house not later than 12:00 noon the day following the snowfall. Please voluntarily keep the sidewalks and footpaths next to your property clear, so others may safely use them. Failing to comply with the City’s bylaw may result in a fine of $150.

On January 1, the City initiated a new curbside collection system with new collection boundaries. Your time and day of collection likely have changed. Please have all materials at the curb by 7:00 AM on your scheduled collection day. If you have any questions, contact the Engineering Department at eng-info@abbotsford.ca or 604-864-5514.

Lining Your Compost Container

Please do not use compostable or biodegradable plastics to line your kitchen compost pail or your curbside compost container. Compostable plastics are not accepted in curbside compost collection and may result in your compostable waste not being collected. Please use paper-based liners or newspaper in the containers. Alternatively, you could use no liners and wash the containers periodically. If you have any questions, please contact the Engineering Department at eng-info@abbotsford.ca or 604-864-5514.

Happy 90th birthday, Abbotsford News! Kayli Sartori, who played high school basketball for WJ Mouat, is one of several local stars on the UFV women’s basketball team. Most of the team hails from Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Mission.

D

id you know you can watch some of the best university sports teams in the nation right here in Abbotsford at the University of the Fraser Valley? It’s been a banner year so far for UFV women’s volleyball and basketball teams. Both lead in league play and have been ranked number-one nationally in weekly polls recently — the volleyball Cascades several times and the basketball women twice in January. The women’s basketball hold on the #1 ranking slipped away after some weekend losses, but they still rank a respectable fourth. The UFV men’s basketball team is also having a strong season, having ranked consistently in the top 10

nationally since early in the season. The men’s volleyball team has been competitive, and continue to strive for a playoff streak after securing a victory last weekend. “We want the community to know that we’re offering very high caliber athletic opportunities close to home for the best local young athletes,” said UFV athletics director Rocky Olfert. “Also, we want the Cascades to be the Fraser Valley’s team. Once you’ve experienced the energy and enthusiasm of a Cascades game, you’ll want to come back and bring your friends and family.” UFV basketball teams play at the highest level of university sport in Canada as part of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). They

play as part of the Pacific division of the Canada West conference of CIS. The volleyball teams play at the collegiate level as part of the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association. The number-one national ranking for the women’s basketball team for two weeks in January marked UFV’s first such ranking in their seven-year affiliation with the CIS. While veteran coach Al Tuchscherer allowed his players a little bit of excitement about the number-one ranking, he’s aware that the season isn’t over, and many teams are contenders for top spot. “It’s an honor to be recognized for things we’ve done in the past and as exciting as it is for UFV to have a team in this position, it’s not a guarantee of any future success. The reality is that we are more focused on the possibilities moving forward. At this point the most important thing is that we continue to learn and grow every day, and be best prepared for the rigours of CIS playoff basketball,” he said. After a couple of losses broke their winning streak over the Jan. 18/19 weekend, the Cascades are still on top of the Pacific Division of Canada West league play. The men are at an even 7/7 and were ranked in the top 10 nationally earlier this season. The UFV women’s volleyball team sit at a very comfortable 15-1 league record and are strong contenders for a national title this year. They placed third in Canada in 2012. Current Cascade Kayla Bruce is nominated for Sport BC college athlete of the year. She’s a 2012 CCAA women’s volleyball AllCanadian, 2012 CCAA women’s volleyball national championship

all-star, and her team is currently #1 in the CCAA national rankings. If the women’s teams continue their winning ways, chances are there will be some home-court playoff action to watch later in February. In the meantime, you can catch the last few weekends of league play at UFV’s Envision Athletic Centre.

BREAKING NEWS

More debate on YMCA deal The debate on a proposal to build a YMCA facility in Abbotsford on donated land and with a $17.5-million investment by the city will continue at least until April, pending a review by the new city manager. A delegation on the controversial project brought about 150 residents to city council on Monday afternoon. Fred Thiessen, a local businessman with the Stonecroft Group, represented the interests of opposed citizens and business owners. He spoke against publicly funding half of the construction cost – $17.5 million – of a YMCA facility in Abbotsford. The land

would be granted by Fraser Health, on the site of the old MSA Hospital on McCallum Road. Thiessen assured council he has no objections to the YMCA as an organization, only the feasibility of providing public money and a property tax exemption. Thiessen also raised the question of whether such a facility is needed in Abbotsford. “The City of Abbotsford needs to get its financial house in order,” he said. John Woolgar, general manager of facility management at the YMCA of Greater Vancouver, also made a presentation. He said that as a growing city, Abbotsford will

have more demand for recreational services, which the Y would help provide. Woolgar said that as a not-for-profit, the organization gives back to the community. He confirmed a tax exemption would be requested, as all YMCA facilities have such agreements with municipal governments. Mayor Bruce Banman said the city will continue the debate. “We will have the discussion. We owe it to the community.” Banman emphasized that the city currently has a non-binding memorandum of understanding with the YMCA and can leave the deal at any time.

ANDREW HOLOTA EDITOR

Local businessman Fred Thiessen addressed council Monday night, questioning the proposed YMCA project.

Ban on shark fin sales The selling, trading and distributing of shark fins has been banned in Abbotsford. The city passed an amendment Monday to the business licence bylaw, prohibiting the sale of shark fins. The issue arises from “finning,” the practice of cutting off a shark’s fin and releasing the live creature back into the ocean where it dies. A city staff report outlined the selling of shark fins as a “noxious and offensive business.”

VANCOUVER 1020 W. Broadway 604-267-7860

Coun. Patricia Ross said obtaining shark fins is an “inhumane practice” and the city must take measures to stop the distribution of shark fin products. Coun. Henry Braun pointed out the City of Toronto’s bylaw banning shark-fin products was struck down by the Ontario Supreme Court. The city report recommended a resolution calling upon the federal government to ban the importation of shark fin.

BREAKING NEWS ‘Offensive’ football criticism spurs city to eye new policy Faced with renewed criticism of a public arena being used for a sport that features scantily dressed female football players, city hall will embark on an effort to define what’s acceptable in taxpayer-funded facilities. Richard Peachey, an Abbotsford resident, made a presentation to council on Monday night, encouraging the city to stop the Legend Football League – formerly known as “lingerie football” – from using the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre due to its “offensive” content.

The B.C. Angels of the Lingerie Football League, now called Legends Football, played their inaugural game in Abbotsford last summer.

Coun. Henry Braun proposed a motion for a written policy to be developed, saying it would help guide staff decisions on what organizations can use public properties. Mayor Bruce Banman disagreed, stating that the city is “not the morality police.” Peachey said the contract between the LFL and Global Spectrum – an American corporation that manages the sports centre – states that the AESC will be used for “professional indoor football games.” He said the team is “not professional

in any way,” citing “skanky” uniforms, lack of proper equipment, and the fact the athletes are not paid by the league. Peachey said Global’s contract states the centre will not be used for “dangerous, noxious or offensive trade or business.” Peachey said the LFL’s use of the facility contradicts this contract. Banman asked that council proceed with extreme caution, stating that cancelling everything that could possibly be offensive is a “dangerous slope.”

For 90 years, The Abbotsford News has reported the important issues of the day. Congratulations for turning the page on another decade.

TimeMaster Jewellers watches and clocks before coming to Canada. He worked for the renowned Birks & Sons Jewellers in Hamilton, Ontario before he decided to come out west. He began working for Time & Gold in Vancouver, where he worked with some of the best watchmakers in Canada for almost five years. But he always longed to open up his own business.

Margaret and Janusz Dobosz There is no replacement for experience and Janusz Dobosz has plenty of it. The owner of Timemaster Jewellers, located in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, has been fixing watches and other fine timepieces for nearly 40 years.

Janusz learned the craft by attending technical school for 4 years with practical and theory training in his native Poland. After finishing school in 1976 he apprenticed for another year in one of Warsaw’s prestigious watchmaker’s shops. At the young age of just 21 he successfully passed Master Watchmaker exam. Since then he opened and operated his own shop in Warsaw. In 1986, he decided to leave his country and spent a year and a half in Italy furthering his knowledge of various

In 1997, Janusz opened Timemaster Jewellers. A year later his wife Margaret joined him.

As business increased, so did the need for a larger store. Seven years ago, Timemaster doubled in size to accommodate a larger showroom and larger watch and clock repair workshop. Also to meet a large demand for the jewellery department, a separate goldsmith workshop was established on premises. To date, approximately 150,000 customers from all parts of BC, Canada and United States have walked through their doors! In 2009, Janusz accepted an invitation to train in Omega in the latest watch movement technologies such as Co-Axial escapement, developed by Omega. As a result, you will find in his workshop all necessary equipment to test and aid in servicing complicated watches.

Sixteen years later... and going strong

An expert in all types of watches and timepieces, Janusz has worked on the most complex pieces, the old and the latest. His appreciation for antique timepieces which he restores and repairs includes hand-manufacturing of parts no longer available. For Grandfather clocks in need of repairs, Janusz will make a house call. For people who cannot bring their clocks to his store he offers pick-up and delivery service. Over two and a half years ago Timemaster team was joined by Gerry Verhaagen, a Dutch watch and clockmaker. He brings in 45 years of experience and is coming from the family with traditions in watchmaking from Holland. Also a part of the team is Lee, an exceptionally talented goldsmith with over 30 years of experience. He takes care of all the repairs and custom-made jewellery. At Timemaster they use latest technologies in custom jewellery design and redesign such as CAD-CAM and CNC. They also work with platinum. All work and repairs are done on the premises. For the third year in a row, Timemaster Jewellers has been

TimeMaster Jewellers Sevenoaks • 604.556.7740 • timemaster.ca

Proudly working for the constituents of Abbotsford South

nominated for Retailer Excellence at Abbotsford Business Excellence Awards. Now, more than ever, Janusz and Margaret have seen an increase in customers seeking a higher level of service and friendly, knowledgeable staff. “Moving to Abbotsford and establishing our business here was the best decision we made. This year we celebrate our 16th anniversary. Thank you to all our loyal customers and friends for your ongoing support,” says Janusz.

Every Week, our Ad Match Team checks our major competitor’s flyers and matches the price on hundreds of items throughout the store*. We Match Prices! *Look for the symbol in store. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES (note that our major supermarket competitors may not). Due to the fact that product is ordered prior to the time of our Ad Match checks, quantities may be limited. We match select items in our major supermarket competitors’ flyers throughout the week. Major supermarket competitors are determined solely by us based on a number of factors which can vary by store location. We match identical items (defined as same brand, size, and attributes) and for fresh produce, meat and bakery, we match a comparable item (as determined solely by us).

LEADING the future Banman: Balancing city character and growth Abbotsford has long been a city in transition. When Mayor Bruce Banman moved to Abbotsford in 1982, Matsqui and Abbotsford were separate municipalities. It was obvious then that the area contained two distinct communities, and he witnessed the city transition into the Abbotsford of today, a diverse but cohesive city. Banman recognizes that regions of Abbotsford, such as Bradner, Mount Lehman and Clearbrook, still maintain their own character. But these areas have managed to meld together while maintaining a distinct identity and a sense of pride. This diversity makes Abbotsford unique, but also creates some of the city’s key issues.

moniker coined many years ago. “Most people in Abbotsford know someone who lives on a farm, and they’re very protective of it.” This relationship to farming can come into conflict with the city’s rapidly increasing population. Banman said Abbotsford is expected in increase by 70,000 residents over the next 25 years, which will add to the ongoing issues of urbanization. “There will be an economic boom, but also the struggles that go with it. Namely, transportation, road corridors, infrastructure.”

Banman said it will take careful planning to manage a growing city while maintaining its characteristic rurality. This intensifies the need for densification. “We have to densify if we want to protect the farmland. Densification is a natural evolution.” In a city that has grown from unique roots, the future lies in maintaining the diversity of communities, lifestyles and economic engines. “I think we sometimes forget how incredibly special Abbotsford is – it needs to be recognized.”

Mayor Bruce Banman

Though Banman said everyone in Abbotsford wants good schools, hospitals and services, one of the biggest challenges is making decisions that benefit the different needs of rural and urban areas. “The rural areas have felt a little bit left out, as if the city, by sheer numbers, have gotten them kind of lost.” Abbotsford boasts the most productive farmland in Canada, which remains a key economic driver of the city. Banman said that maintaining agriculture is also integral to the identity and lifestyle of the “City in the County,” a marketing

Peary proud of accomplishments George Peary has called Abbotsford home since 1973. A long-time principal, he spent 28 years teaching in the Abbotsford school division. Following a recent term as mayor, Peary is once again doing what he loves, as an instructor at the University of Fraser Valley. He served on the council of Matsqui since 1987, and then joined the council of Abbotsford when the cities amalgamated in 1995. “It was interesting to a newcomer to encounter two communities that had a common border, shared a school district and fire services and recreation areas, yet they still operated independently.” He campaigned for amalgamation, knowing it would create a more efficient government and create a bigger, stronger community. “To have the residents of Abbotsford and Matsqui come together and decide they want to become the City of Abbotsford, that was a watershed moment in the history of this community.”  Since that development, Peary has seen the community change dramatically.   While on council, Peary worked closely with mayor George Ferguson, referring to themselves as “big and little George.”  Peary supported Ferguson’s idea of the Matsqui Police force becoming the new force in Abbotsford, as opposed to the RCMP. It was an important development in the growth of the city. Amalgamation also helped the district of Abbotsford, which had been served only by wells, gain access to Norrish Creek water CONTINUED ON PAGE 21

LEADING the future Community involvement drove Reeves towards politics

Former Mayor Mary Reeves Mary Reeves’ move into city politics in 2002 came, somewhat, “by accident.” The former mayor of Abbotsford became involved in local politics when the Sumas Energy 2 project gained profile. The proposed power plant on the American side of the border would have a major environmental impact on Abbotsford. Reeves was working with the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association when she was approached by community members who told her the

project would bring power lines and towers into downtown Abbotsford, along with potentially serious ramifications for Valley air quality.

As election time neared and the issue was still not resolved, people began to suggest to Reeves that she ought to run for mayor.

Reeves struggled to get SE2 information from the city. The project was being discussed at a public meeting, and she spread the word. The night of the meeting, people were lined up out the door.

“People were saying, ‘if you don’t run, it’ll go through.’ ”

Reeves’ involvement in the project grew into a movement. She organized a protest at the U.S. border crossing that drew around 1,000 people. Further protests on Clearbrook Road drew crowds of up to 5,000. People joined the efforts against SE2 for different reasons, ranging from environmental concerns to a feeling of powerlessness against American enterprise. For Reeves, the problems went deeper. “There was just so much that the public was not notified about.”

Colin is a leader in managing success. Especially his clients’.

Reeves is pleased with what was accomplished in her time in office. One of her proudest moments was seeing the SE2 plan scrapped. Though she enjoyed her time in city hall, Reeves said it is difficult to bring about change in office. “You will sit under the tree someone else planted.” Her term in politics made her realize that she could benefit Abbotsford more as a private citizen. “Politics is a game, more than it is about community.” Reeves is satisfied with her work for the City of Abbotsford and her status as Abbotsford’s first, and for now, the only female mayor.

Pursuing opportunity, building success Anyone who has stepped foot inside the new Abbotsford Chrysler, will quickly realize this dealership has taken huge steps to provide an exceptional shopping experience. The changes are not all completed, with so much more to come, but one quick look and you will see the influence TAG has made in a short period of time. The Trotman Auto Group (TAG) is a family owned, progressive group, run by the three Trotman brothers who grew up and attended school here in Abbotsford. Mike Trotman, president and CEO of TAG, is part of the organization's commitment to make car buying a fun experience. Their Langley Chrysler store has undergone the TAG 'touch' complete with coffee bar, massage chairs, and a business centre to assure their customers are experiencing a relaxing feel while they shop. "We want our customers to know they will have a worldclass experience in our dealerships," Mike says. We have comfortable, vibrant stores and provide our clients with everything they need to make an informed choice." Langley Chrysler is the first of five dealerships owned by the Trotman Automotive Group. It was originally purchased by George Trotman (father) in 1977. At the time, the dealership was a me-

Mitch oversees the operations in Abbotsford, with both Abbotsford Chrysler and Abbotsford Hyundai. Brad steers the flagship at Langley Chrysler and oldest brother Mike oversees the group and operations. The trio did not have any set plans at a young age to

Langley store. It was then that they realized there were to be more opportunities in the industry. It was not too much longer until the brothers synergy and experienced upbringing took the Langley store to a higher level and reached the top three percent of Chrysler stores across Canada. Their Langley store was recognized by Chrysler Canada as a 'President's Club' which, at the time, recognized the top 20 dealerships in Canada.

Comox Valley Dodge in Courtney arose. In 2008, they acquired the Toyota franchise in Cranbrook and followed up with a 2010 purchase of the Abbotsford Hyundai in the Fraser Valley Auto Mall. Their fifth dealership was Abbotsford Chrysler in 2011, which provided the group with three strong Chrysler stores in B.C. The brothers all agree that the success of their organization is based on their culture. "Our vision is to lead the industry and

which in turn provides the dealership the ability to reach

its goals and ensure a win-win situation. "We're not afraid to try new things," says Mitch. “In this industry, you cannot stand still and you have to be innovative. As a strong and vibrant group, we gain a distinct advantage with access to more inventory and buying power. We carry more inventory than most dealerships and can easily dealer trade without any effort." "For the longest time, the industry remained the same. That changed a few years ago. We encourage employee feedback from our team that we used and shared within our group. This helped our culture and provided us with the stimulus to continually improve our organization." "Some of the most successful organizations make mistakes," says Brad. “We're not perfect and mistakes have been known to happen. We empower our team to make decisions and create opportunities to make things right, so our customer keeps coming back. This is something we champion within our teams: to make things right." The brothers agree that growth is critical and important to their success. "We are very aware of getting too big too fast just for the sake of growth," says Mike. “Any acquisition must be well timed and meet the needs of the company with potential to manage it.”

“Our inspired team will lead the industry by providing exceptional experiences.”

What Kind of Home Fits Your Lifestyle? If you are working with a Realtor to find a new home, it is important to communicate what elements of your lifestyle will influence your choice. This information will enable the Realtor to match you up more quickly with a home your family will love. Do you give a lot of parties? Are you a serious cook? Do you want to accommodate hobbies like painting, photography, or woodworking? Will the availability of a community pool or tennis

courts influence your buying decision? Will your son’s hard rock band be holding rehearsals in your basement? Do you need a home office? Do you plan to begin or enlarge your family? Is there someone in your household who cannot climb stairs? These are the types of factors that can influence your main criteria and can help your Realtor to narrow down which of the many homes on the market might be right for you.

HISTORY in the making

A83

From the

Celebration for Fraser Valley Sikhs

archives

1983

New temple, guru’s birthday and New Year’s Day It was a threefold celebration for thousands of Fraser Valley Sikhs Saturday – their $2.4 million temple was opening; Guru Gobind Singh, 10th Guru of the faith, was having a birthday; and it was New Year’s Day.

®

Ceremonies began in the morning as the Sikhs’ holy book was carried in a processional from the old temple to the new building. Crowds of well-wishers and members of the congregation then climbed the flights of stairs to catch their first glimpse of the temple’s main hall – dominated by a huge ceiling dome.

Optik TV is too good for words.

It was a new experience for many non-Sikh visitors and dignitaries who learned something of the faith’s rituals – first, never wear shoes into a place of worship, and second, not to enter the main hall before donning white scarves (provided by the Sikhs). Inside, members of the faith line up before an altar to give monetary offerings and praise, before finding a spot to sit on the burgundy-carpeted floor. Nachatter Singh Gill thanked the congregation who “so openheartedly gave donations” toward building the new temple.

Kiernan cuts arena ribbon Lions Club president Tom Ruben perhaps summed it up when he said “It was you who made this possible” in his speech at the arena opening ceremonies Saturday afternoon.

Speaking on behalf of the Abbotsford Lions, Mr. Ruben, whose organization was probably the major reason for this area finally getting an ice arena, detailed all the effort that went into

passing the arena vote, building it and equipping it. He said, in reference to equipment, that it was not so much the club as the people who “bought the peanuts, raffle tickets and con-

tributed to the club’s many fund raising activities” that made the facility we can now be so proud of.

Official opening involved many local politicians in addition to MLA Hon. Kenneth

Kiernan who cut the ribbon and MP Jerry Pringle. Although there were many speeches, Mr. Ruben must be given credit for making the event enjoyable and entertaining, giving praise

where praise was due. Unfortunately, he and all the other speakers labored under a poor public address system but as this facility had not been used before, it did a creditable job.

Mission Bridge opening attracts crowds Mission Bridge, “a bridge for people, not cars,” was officially opened on Saturday afternoon by Premier

David Barrett with the expected pomp and ceremony. Premier made reference to the “bridge for the people”

in his remarks prior to unveiling a plaque, one of which will be located at each end of the structure.

He said he hoped the crossing would serve to strengthen communities on both sides of the river. “I want you

to realize that this is a bridge for the people, not automobiles,” the premier stated, adding that he hoped citizens

would get together to use the bridge with a sense of purpose. He said he did not want to see a car carrying

only one passenger using the bridge. Crowd in excess of 1,500 persons, crowded the platform.

“You are most fortunate,” Hon. Ray Williston told MSA district citizens who filled Abbotsford Senior High School’s gymnasium-auditorium for the official opening ceremonies of the new school. The minister of education unveiled a bronze plaque bearing names of the trustees, board officials and firms connected with construction of the handsome structure prior to declaring it officially open. District’s school construction program of recent years has placed it in an enviable position in respect to school facilities, said Hon. Mr. Williston. He paid tribute to the quality of teaching staff in District 34. Other areas in the province are not so fortunate, the minister declared. Prayer of dedication was pronounced by Rev. Norman Calland.

LEADING the future

District 8

Dave Kandal recalls mayorship of Matsqui become the mayor of Matsqui in 1987. “At that time we were also three districts – Mission, Sumas and Abbotsford.”

Former Mayor Dave Kandal Dave Kandal’s career in politics began at the Matsqui school board in the ’70s. As a former educator and father of five schoolchildren, it was natural area of interest for him. After seven years on the school board he ran for the council in Matsqui. From there it was a “natural progression” to

Kandal said that people used to joke that MSA stood for Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta – from where many of the residents had originally come. Kandal was born in Saskatchewan but came to the Fraser Valley as a child. As he grew up in the area, he recognized the importance of bringing the communities together. As mayor of Matsqui, he was a vocal advocate of amalgamation. When it came time to choose a mayor of the new Abbotsford, Kandal of course put his name in the hat. Other candidates were Abbotsford mayor George Ferguson and

2013

former Matsqui mayor Harry de Jong. On election day, it was Ferguson who came out on top. The issues in Abbotsford today bear a strong resemblance to the debates that occurred in Matsqui. “The same things are happening nowadays as happened then.” Kandal said development and growth were issues when he was mayor and he sees the same challenges on a larger scale now. “Any time you have growth you have problems. We’ve tried to maintain our rural lifestyle as much as possible. There’s a slow erosion of that too, but that’s natural.” “It’s a gorgeous place we live in. It’s where I’m going to live out my life.”

De Jong saw big changes in time as Matsqui mayor When Harry de Jong came to Canada from the Netherlands as a young man in 1947, Abbotsford looked very different.

We are HaPPY to be in tHe Heart of tHis great communitY for tHe Past 38 Years.

The Trans-Canada highway was a twolane road, running through Abbotsford down Essendene Avenue. There were

no stoplights on the roads in the small farming community. De Jong said it was in the early ‘60s, when Highway 401 was built, that brought about changes in the city, encouraging the growth that is seen in Abbotsford today. It was also in the

early ‘60s that de Jong became involved in the MSA Parks and Recreation Commission. His experience there would eventually lead him into politics. The parks commission requested $2,000 from the Matsqui council in order to staff local pools with lifeguards. They were denied the money and the council took over management of the facilities. De Jong later learned the council was spending almost five times as much to run the pools as they had requested. The parks commission realized they needed a representative who could run for council. It was de Jong who came forward. He ran for Matsqui council without success,

but came within 100 votes of a seat. When he ran in the next election, he was successful. After four years as a councillor, de Jong saw the necessity of encouraging connection and co-operation between Abbotsford and Matsqui. He saw that services could and needed to be shared, such as water and a fire department. De Jong said the mayor at that time, Douglas Taylor, was moving away from sharing services with Abbotsford. This encouraged de Jong to run for the top seat. “I told him, ‘see you at the polls.’ “ De Jong was successful in his run, and loyal to his goal of integrating services with Abbotsford.
