Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) has arrested a 32-year-old man for three robberies that took place in Mission and Abbotsford in 2009 and 2012. Shaymon Webb has been charged with nine offences – three counts of robbery, three firearms-related crimes, and three counts of using a mask/disguise during an offence. The robberies took place July 9, 2009 and March 7, 2012 at Chances Gaming Centre in Mission and on June 12, 2012 at Michael Hill Jeweller in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. Const.

He was taken into custody the next day, was charged with break and enter, and was released on $500 bail. He pleaded guilty to that offence last week and is slated to be sentenced on April 5.  Webb is currently in custody and was expected to appear in court for the robbery charges this week. He is also before the courts for theft under $5,000, related to an offence on Jan. 10.

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Do you support the city’s new ban on the sale, trade or distribution of shark fins?

In the seven months that I’ve lived on our culde-sac, this felt like home. A great street to live on, full of kids and great families. I am going to miss her greatly, driving by and waving, or just a quick hello, how’s it going? She is going to be missed around here, I truly believe that we were robbed of getting to know this wonderful lady better! Lesley Hutton

A family on a nightmare train of justice Andrew

Holota

On Point Three weeks ago, Justice William Grist pronounced Jesse Blue West guilty of the first-degree murder of 14-year-old Chelsey Acorn. Sitting in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack, her mother clapped, and exclaimed “Yes!” Outside the court, family and supporters hugged and cried in relief over West’s automatic life sentence with no parole eligibility for 25 years. The ordeal was finally over. Those close to young Chelsey have been riding a nightmare train since she went missing on June 10, 2005 from an Abbotsford foster home. Her remains were found April 8, 2006 in a shallow grave near the Carolin Mines exit off the Coquihalla Highway outside of Hope. One agonizing chapter had come to a close. Another was about to begin.

Working on a variety of tips and gree murder, and sentenced him to life leads, police investigators eventually in prison.

Yet in the world of a family struggling with the loss of a loved one, and grittily dealing with the courts’ measure of her murderers, there can only be immense bewilderment, frustration and pain. It has been said many times that the current justice system is weighed in favour of the accused and convicted, frequently leaving victims feeling ignored and under-valued. In this type of trial appeal, cannot there be another level of judgment, which would determine if the “errors” are so significant that they overturn an overwhelming case? Could the jury be reconvened and asked to determine whether the appeal findings are sufficient to make them change their minds? If nowhere else in the criminal justice process, do the victims and survivors not hold some higher consideration at this point?

letters Pay park at hospitals bullies the sick and their families The issue of having to pay for parking at hospitals has been a concern of mine for many years, and I believe needs to be addressed by both leaders prior to the upcoming provincial election.   The only explanation given to date is that the revenue from the parking is put back into the health budget, but that does not explain why persons and families of persons who require medical attention are burdened with this cost.   The hourly rates are exorbitant and the company that has been given the contract to police the matter is profiting on the backs of those who need treatment. I can well appreciate the problems that could result if totally unrestricted parking were permitted in hospital lots.   However, that could readily be dealt with by having persons sign in and out, which would require them to identify the

person(s) they might be visiting, and time constraints could also be instituted to control the situation. There is no viable reason for the excessively high rates charged at hospital parking lots, and if both the health unit executive and the provincial government were honest they could do nothing but agree with this statement.   Mission and Delta have bylaws in effect that prohibit charging in hospital parking lots, and that similar bylaws should be set down in other municipalities if the provincial government and the health units refuse or fail to take appropriate action.   The current situation can only be described as bullying – yes, bullying against the sick and their families. This is definitely an issue that needs to be addressed by the next provincial government.   Frank Wirrell Abbotsford

Variety helps Abbotsford student with rare syndrome Children’s charity assists kids with health issues

Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Greg Sutherland is in constant pain. There is little he can do for the chronic ache in his leg, so the 14-year-old Grade 9 student has had to learn ways to cope in order to focus on his studies and having fun. Greg suffers from complex region pain syndrome –  a rare and poorly understood disorder believed to be the result of a dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous system, which causes an intense burning pain in extremities. At school, he choos-

es to cast off the cane he uses to walk in favour of toughing it out. “He doesn’t want to seem different,” said Greg’s father, Kevin Sutherland. “He’s an expert at hiding it.” But whether he hides it, Greg’s pain is a constant, and he’s been living with it for years. About five years ago, Greg came to his parents Kevin Sutherland and Janet Servis, with a sore spot on his leg. As the spot grew and the pain intensified, they became more concerned. They went to the hospital, but after running multi-

ple tests, doctors had no answers. The pain got worse, but with no diagnosis, doctors wanted to discharge Greg from hospital. Still desperate for an explanation, Janet and Kevin were told by a doctor that Greg’s pain wasn’t real at all; it was all in his head. It took three years of doctors’ visits and tests before they got an answer, but it did not bring a solution. Greg’s pain has since spread to cover his whole left leg. Kevin said not being believed by doctors at first was the most difficult part. Since then, it has taken

time to understand Greg’s syndrome, and it has no simple solution. Kevin likens it to phantom pains, a misfiring of nerves. Janet and Kevin have struggled watching their son in constant pain. As the parents of four children, the added stress has weighed heavily on them. They have experimented with different methods of physiotherapy for Greg, some of which made things worse. With doctors at a

loss, Kevin and Janet developed their own physiotherapy plan for Greg. Janet and Kevin worked Greg through the excruciating exercises in their home. With limited solutions, Greg visited psychologists who taught him how to cope with his pain. Since his diagnoses, he does physiotherapy and hydrotherapy. Though the hydrotherapy helps Greg stay active, it’s not covered under Kevin’s

health care. Kevin said it’s complicated by the fact they are a single-income home. The family gets financial assistance from Variety – The Children’s Charity to help offset the cost of Greg’s therapy. “We were desperate,” said Janet. “We just started searching online asking for help anywhere.” They found Variety, which has been providing some financial support for two years. Variety will be

hosting its 47th annual Show of Hearts Telethon to raise money for B.C. children with special needs on Feb. 16 and 17. The telethon raises money to provide grants to children who are struggling with a variety of health issues. The show will run on Global BC on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. through Feb. 17 at 6 p.m. Call 310-KIDS or visit www.variety.bc.ca to donate.

As third generation farmers, the Jeffries look to us for next-generation advice ALEX BUTLER Abbotsford News

Students at Dormick Park Elementary admire a new bench designed by students and First Nations artist Don Froese, at its unveiling on Tuesday afternoon. Froese – whose traditional name is Peq’ Yexwela – took input from the students to create the piece. Perry Smith, district principal of Aboriginal programs, led students in the unveiling ceremony, which included honoured elders and dignitaries. The bench will be placed in a spot of honour within the school, and Smith explained the various components of the design. The face represents the students, the salmon represents the Sto:lo territory, the spirit bear represents the mother figure and the design on the bottom represents the life cycle of the frog. Hands were incorporated into the design to represent the children’s innocence. The project has been in the works since early last year.

From A22

if they’re fit to be released, a judge can order the offender be held for up to three years before a review. And offenders with that designation would not be released unless a judge agrees. The courts will also be able to ban provincial review boards from issuing controversial unescorted day passes to designated offenders. Schoenborn, who is in a psychiatric hospital in Coquitlam, is slated for his next annual review on Feb. 15. “These reforms cannot undo the terrible things that have been perpetrated on victims like Darcie Clark and her children,” Harper said. “But they will help her and other victims regain control of their lives.” The prime minister said Canadians have been shocked to learn some violent individuals in detention for their mental illness have been given unescorted day passes despite still being deemed a threat to public safety. “Something here is very wrong,” Harper said. “The safety of the public must be the paramount consideration.” Provincial review boards will now be able to better restrict the movements of offenders it does release, by ordering they not have contact with victims or other individuals, and by ordering them to stay away from certain places. A coalition of mental health groups urged Ottawa to carefully consider the need to promote the recovery of mentally disordered offenders while pursuing public safety aims.

Y E A R S

A message from our President 100 years is a big milestone by pretty much any standard. Canada was only 46 years young as a nation when the Abbotsford Board of Trade, as it was known then, was formed. And while the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce has been through challenging times it has always met those challenges and grown in stature and influence along with the community. Today, we have as many members as we have ever had, and continue to build on our proud heritage. I want to pay tribute to all of the Past Presidents and Directors in Abbotsford Chamber history. My best guess is the total number of

individuals serving in these Our history also includes capacities would be in the some actions we are not so hundreds. The combined proud of, such as periods in hours they donated to this time when immigrants were city’s economic not well received by success is the membership of considerable the day.

The power of small business...

Y E A R S

What is “small business”? In BC, small business is defined as a business that employs fewer than 50 individuals, or one operated by a person who is selfemployed without paid help. According to the 2012 Small Business Profile, prepared by the BC Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, there are approximately 385,100 small businesses

Kick up your heels, doesn’t it feel great to be 100?!

operating in BC, accounting for 98% of all businesses in the province! Microbusiness, those with fewer than 5 employees, comprised about 82% of small business. The report goes on to say approximately 1,027,900 people were employed by small business in BC, representing 56% of all private sector employees. Self-employed individuals account for 56% of small businesses. On average, the self-employed tend to be older, are more often men and more likely to work longer hours than paid employees. Women represent over 37% of entrepreneurs in BC, the second highest proportion in the country. The provinces long-term growth in

entrepreneurship, a key component of small business, has profoundly impacted its economic landscape. Despite recent economic uncertainty across the country and around the globe, British Columbia’s small business owners are consistently among the most optimistic in the nation in their expectations for the future according to a recent survey. Locally, our Chamber members are a close reflection of the makeup and results of the province as a whole. Approximately 90% of our members are small business and 60% of our members employ 5 or less individuals. Small business drives the economy in Abbotsford and our membership reflects the full range of

diverse business activity in the area. We are also fortunate to have strong membership from the agricultural sector which accounts for such a significant part of our local economy. Small business is vital to our future success as a community and a province. The Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a partner with local business to create access and opportunities for business growth, skills development, networking and benefits. In addition, we will continue to advocate for, and speak on behalf of issues important to small business in the Fraser Valley. We are YOUR Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce.

A message from our Executive Director The Abbotsford Chamber is composed of close to 780 member businesses comprised of over 8,000 employees working in this community. Interestingly, over 60% of our Chamber members are firms with less than 5 employees, with another 20% in the 5 to 25 employee range. This means we really do represent small business, a driving force in our community.

committees, boards, review panels and advisory groups. The Chamber uses an extensive network of volunteers to bolster staff to ensure that we are adequately represented locally and regionally. Our membership in the B.C. Chambers of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce provides us with representation at a provincial level and beyond

The Board of Directors and Executive of the Abbotsford Chamber are volunteers drawn from the membership of the Chamber and elected by the Chamber members. Our committees are also made of members who volunteer their time to provide input, discussion and leadership in creating the direction, goals and initiatives of the Chamber. Chamber members work here, live here, play here and raise their kids here. Oh, and they also pay taxes here, both on a personal and a business basis.

The objectives of the Abbotsford Chamber are to be the voice of business and to represent, serve and connect our members to maintain a thriving business community. We do this in four specific areas: advocacy, networking, benefits and development. We work on behalf of our members to meet their needs but also to contribute to the good of the community as a whole. We want Abbotsford to be a great place to live and do business!

Chamber members represent a broad cross section of our population and bring with them their knowledge and real life experience. The advantage is that the Chamber is able to look at business in Abbotsford from a broad perspective and understand the impact on the needs of the community as a whole. As a result, the Chamber is represented on a number of

Market balance seen this spring A total of 617 sales were processed through the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board’s Multiple Listing Service in January – a decrease of 23 per cent compared to 799 sales during the same month last year. January 2013 ranks as the second slowest for that month in the last 13 years, second only to January 2009 during the global recession. Scott Olson, president of the board, says there is a distinction between what realtors saw four years ago compared to today. “People want to buy. We’re already seeing early signs of a typical spring market with more foot traffic at open houses and an increase in calls. “Buyers have been holding off in hopes that prices will drop more, however, it’s become clear that sellers are only willing to go so far.

Of the three property types, prices of

Milwaukee goalie Hellberg bedevils Heat

The Abbotsford Heat ran into a hot goalie on Tuesday as they opened a five-game road swing. The Heat out-shot the Milwaukee Admirals by a 30-20 margin, but Ads netminder Magnus Hellberg stood tall. Aside from a

er geth

third-period goal by Max Reinhart, the Swedish rookie keeper was flawless as Abbotsford saw its twogame win streak snapped. The Heat fired 16 shots on goal in the first period alone, but Hellberg stopped them all.

The hosts opened the scoring at 11:50 of the second, as Juuso Puustinen notched a power-play marker. Early in the third, Taylor Beck made it 2-0. Reinhart netted his fourth goal of the season at 9:18 of the final frame,

Yale launches U16 hockey team The hockey academy at Yale Secondary is launching a highperformance travel team for players in the under-16 age group, to begin play this fall. Yale becomes the second public school in B.C. to have a fulltime U16 team, having recently received its approvals from Abbotsford Minor Hockey, BC Hockey and School District 34. The squad will play a 50-game exhibition schedule from September to June, including a trip to Hockey Canada's World Sports Schools Challenge in Calgary in December. "We're excited to see this all come together," said Billy Wilms, program co-ordinator for the Yale Hockey Academy. "Hockey Canada sees this as the way of the future for development . . . They see the remarriage of the hockey system and the education system." The team would be comprised of first-year midget-aged players, but Wilms said it's not designed to draw players away from the B.C. Major Midget League, where most of the elite 15-year-old prospects play. Rather, the goal is to give 15-year-olds who aren't quite ready to play against more physically mature 17-year-olds a better chance to develop. "Sometimes you have situations where you've got boys playing against men," Wilms noted. "This is going to provide a better environment for those 15-year-olds to develop, and hopefully the next year they're ready to play major midget or junior. "In order for a player to play U16 . . . they have to be released from major midget." Tryouts for the U16 team run May 24-26. For more information, visit yalesportacademy.com.

Mouat grapplers golden at Alberni tourney

The W.J. Mouat boys wrestling team cleaned up at the prestigious Port Alberni Invitational on the weekend, winning both the cadet and juvenile boys titles. Amrit Benning, returning from an injury suffered in early January, led the way for the Hawks. The 2012 national cadet champion dominated Brett Nelson of Campbell River en route to gold in his division and the most outstanding wrestler award. Mouat's Rahul Narula, Nishan Randhawa, Davinder Gill and

IC T E M GA

Jason Baringh also won gold medals. Silver medallists were Khang Nguyen, Leon Lokombo, Navrose Brar and Jas Sidhu, while Mickey Khehira earned a bronze. Aman Bains added another medal for the Hawks on the girls side of the tourney, winning bronze. n Hansen Secondary hosts the Upper Fraser Valley zone wrestling championships on Saturday. The event begins at 9 a.m., and the top five boys and top four girls in each weight class advance to provincials, March 1-2 in Cowichan.

FV East hoops playoff set for tip-off Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

If you’re looking for a reason to check out the Fraser Valley East AAA high school boys basketball playoff tournament this week, it’s worth noting that the local league may be the strongest it’s ever been. You want elite teams? The Yale Lions and the Walnut Grove Gators of Langley are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the province, respectively. The W.J. Mouat Hawks and the Sardis Falcons are also among the better teams

in B.C. –  they’ve both been ranked in the top 10 at different points, and they’re currently honourable mentions. Factor in a couple of squads good enough to engineer an upset on any given day in the MEI Eagles and the Abbotsford Senior Panthers, along with a fastimproving Robert Bateman Timberwolves squad, and this week’s playoff tourney at Yale Secondary should be awfully entertaining. “It’s the best it’s ever been, easily,” Mouat coach Rich

Ralston asserted, reflecting on the strength of the Fraser Valley East. “I would expect that in the 16-team Fraser Valleys (the double-knockout stage), we’ll have at least six teams, maybe seven.” The FV East tourney tipped off Wednesday, but results were not available at press time. On Thursday, quarter-finals run at 3, 4:45, 6:30 and 8:15 p.m. The semis go at 6:30 and 8:15 p.m. on Friday, while the bronze and gold medal games are at 6:30 and 8:15 p.m., respectively, on Saturday.

February 9, 2013, Shirley Ruth Gibson (nee Blakeney) ended her courageous battle with cancer at her home in Abbotsford, BC, with her daughters and family by her side. Shirley was born in Prince Albert, SK on February 18, 1941. Shirley had a great sense of adventure which took her north to Uranium City, SK after obtaining her nursing degree. Her family and career took her to Lanigan, SK and finally to the Fraser Valley, BC in 1984 where she worked until retirement. Shirley’s sense of humor and strength made an impression everywhere she went. She was a wonderful writer. Her letters, musings and words of wisdom will be cherished by many. Shirley is lovingly remembered and survived by her daughters, Selena Langan (Ken Ojala), and Allison Gibson-Proctor (Chris); grandchildren, Ethan and Octavia Langan; her siblings, Raymond Blakeney (Hope), Bernice Dick (Jesse Hanson), Joan (Robin) Connauton, L. Dianne Badger, Phyllis Domashovitz, Lorna Blakeney and Debbie Blakeney; long time friend and confidante, Lyall Downey; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. Shirley was predeceased by her parents Walter and Ella Blakeney. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, February 18, 2013 at 11:00 am at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 34537 Marshall Road, Abbotsford, BC. Tributes and condolences may be left at:

McIntosh, William John ‘Bill’ It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Bill McIntosh, husband, father, brother, uncle and great friend. Bill was born in Swift Current, Saskatchewan on May 11, 1937, to James and Christina McIntosh. He passed away suddenly on February 6, 2013 after a three year battle with carcinoid cancer. He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Pat, his son Quinn and daughter Shelley, granddaughters Carly and Sadie. He is predeceased by his parents and sister, Dorothy and her husband Roy. Bill will be missed by his sister Arla, his nieces and nephew and relatives. Bill was blessed with many friends and the family is grateful for all the support and love they have given. Bill, in his earlier years was a commercial fisherman, and then began a career owning and operating McIntosh Bullbozing. Billy was a true standup guy with a great sense of humor and will be forever missed by all who knew him. Special thanks to the Cardiac Unit of Abbotsford Regional Hospital. A Celebration of Bill’s Life will be held on Saturday, February 16, at 1:00 pm at Jubilee Hall, 7999 Bradner Rd. North Bradner, BC. If desired, in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to an animal shelter of your choice. Online condolences to the family may be made at:
