Pre-reg starts for new program First parents in line arrived just after 3 a.m. Tuesday to ensure their children’s spot in proposed school

CELLS WON’T BE SEIZED

BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Pre-registration started Tuesday morning for Mission’s proposed public traditional school, and some parents sacrificed hours of sleep to ensure their children would be included if the academy gets approved. Mission parent Kelly Dalzell was the first in line at the school board administration office on Fourth Avenue, and said she arrived shortly after 3 a.m. “I wanted to make sure my kids get into a traditional school,” she said, citing the emphasis on academics and structure were what drew her to the idea. As of The Record’s press deadline, Mission Public Schools’ website said 69 students have been registered for the kindergarten to Grade 4 academy, but that out of those, there are only three new registrations. The board of trustees has said a minimum of 75 new students — those who aren’t already registered in the school district — must be signed up to make the program financially feasible. Pre-registrations are ongoing until April 1. If that minimum is reached, board chair Edie Heinrichs said there is already a sufficient number of students for the 2014 kindergarten class. A public information meeting held March 11 at Fraserview Elementary School drew about 150 people, reported superintendent Bill Fletcher at Tuesday night’s regular board of trustees’ meeting, which happened at Silverdale Elementary School. The Monday meeting was held after a previous one Feb. 26 where at its conclusion a group of parents gathered and offered to help the board spread the word about the traditional academy to aid in drumming up new registrants.

Municipal forest rebranding underway By Carol aun

Mission Record

s the five-year cutting cycle for Mission’s forestry department comes to an end, there are plans to rebrand the business and operations under a new name, Mission Forest Enterprise. “We want to look for opportunities to create more revenue and jobs, and maintain a working forest,” explained Bob O’Neal, acting director of forest management for the district. Focusing on specialty markets is one way to create a higher value product, explained O’Neal, who can also support local artists looking for a unique piece of wood. Other ideas include tourism, recreation, and filming opportunities in the community forest. The district is also working on building an interpretive forest on the west side of Stave Lake. “That side has a bad reputation now,” said O’Neal. “It scares families away, but we have a unique plan to clean it up and work with volunteers.” O’Neal says the district knows there is a demand for tourism in the area, and they are always looking for ways to form partnerships. While the forest industry can be challenging at times, one thing that remains constant is Mission’s dedication to the environment and the community. “We plan our logging activities so that it doesn’t have a larger impact in one area at a time,” said O’Neal. Legally, the district can

harvest 40 hectares at a time, but it would be an eyesore. That’s why the average is seven hectares and forest engineers, like O’Neal, leave about five per cent of the trees in the area to create structural diversity. “We don’t have a big company mentality.” Currently, crews are logging on Bear Mountain and building roads which will eventually become recreational trails for the community “When we build roads, we build for the long term,” noted O’Neal. About 20 per cent of this year’s cut — be-

tween 7,000 to 8,000 cubic metres — will come from Bear Mountain. “We spread it out so we’re not doing too much in one area at a time,” said O’Neal. “We’ll head to the west side of Stave Lake next.” But before the crews leave one area after it’s been logged, they go through it and try to enhance the area for future use by building ponds where possible, and creating piles of brush for small wildlife to enjoy. The brush piles, or animal condominiums, as O’Neal likes to call

them, are more cost effective than burning and “the wildlife value is tremendous,” O’Neal explained. He also noted extra features, such as ponds, are done in consultation with wildlife biologists and don’t cost the district much more as all the equipment is already in place. The area will be replanted within a year, and it will be at least three years before logging trucks return to Bear Mountain. “We take a lot of pride in our forestry practices,” said O’Neal.

River should be dredged: Hensman

From PRE-REG Page 1

Responding to a parent’s concern, board vicechair Jim Taylor said that there is no intention “to drain the system” to fill a traditional school, and also that if the new program proceeds, it won’t immediately be imbued with a raft of new learning materials that other schools have been requesting, such as new books and smart boards. The school’s PAC, like every other, would likely fundraise for the items they want to see in their classrooms. Taylor added that the impetus for the traditional school came after hearing about the level of dissatisfaction some parents have with what Mission Public Schools offers its students, and ministry of education numbers that show 578 kindergarten to Grade 12 students from Mission leave the district daily to attend independent schools.

The Fraser River needs to be dredged and Councillor Dave Hensman wants to make the topic an election issue for the provincial government. The decision to not do the work on the river this year is “ridiculous,” said Hensman. In a letter to the district, Tim Preece, BC Flood Protection Program manager explained there isn’t enough time to complete the work by the end of this month to

minimize the impact of fish habitat. Reasons for the delay included concern from the Cheam Indian Band and a late freshet season. “Fraser River sediment is so bad right now … we’re starting to build islands in the middle of the Fraser River,” said Hensman, noting there are 18 sand bars from Hope to Mission. Hensman would like these bars removed because eventually they will cause a “huge, huge, huge problem.” “Let us not forget our

history here in Mission,” he continued, referring to devastating floods in Mission in 1894 and 1948. Coun. Tony Luck agreed, saying, “It’s no longer a natural watercourse. As soon as you build dikes around there … you don’t allow the natural course of water to flood the fields. While Mayor Ted Adlem supported his council’s views, he pointed out dredging is not a new issue and the reason why there are 40-50 logging tucks

going through downtown is because “we don’t have the internal fortitude to go out and actually make a passage way in the river and make the river a transportation system the way it was 40-50 years ago.” Now is the time to get people’s attention and make it an election issue, urged Hensman. “It’s a great season for these issues. Council plans to set up a meeting with provincial officials and will invite other communities to get involved.

Former Mission school district superintendent Frank Dunham is taking his former employer to court, alleging a breach in the employment contract. Dunham received a severance package when his employment with the school district ended on Jan. 23, 2013. However, according to his civil claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court earlier this month, Dunham says he is entitled to additional compensation in recognition of his long service. The statement of claim says that extra money should be calculated to 125 days of pay. Mission Public Schools board chair Edie Heinrichs told The Record she believes the district followed the contract accordingly and noted Dunham received a “lucrative” severance package upon his termination. She declined to reveal the details of the money paid out until the board agrees to go public with the information. The school board is consulting with its legal counsel and has 21 days to file a response in court. Dunham’s statement of claim notes he began his career in Mission in 1981 as a Grade 5/6 teacher and was promoted numerous times until he took over as superintendent in 2004. Dunham was on a personal leave of absence for six months before his employment ended.

Additional money for senior abuse hotline By Tom FleTcher Black Press

Saanich Councillor Susan Brice, Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon and Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan announce new funding for senior protection organizations at the B.C. legislature Wednesday. BLACK PRESS PHOTO

Looking for work? We can help.

The B.C. government has announced a $1 million boost to its seniors’ abuse protection programs, including extending the hours for a hotline to report suspicions of abuse or neglect. The bulk of the funding is to allow the Vancouver-based Seniors Abuse and Information Line to extend its hours to 12 hours a day, seven days a week. It offers information, advice and emotional support for seniors and their friends and relatives who suspect elderly people are being abused or taken

advantage of. The number is 604437-1940 in Metro Vancouver and toll-free province-wide at 1-866437-1940. Saanich councillor and former MLA Susan Brice, a volunteer with the seniors’ support organization Silver Threads, said members see cases of abuse frequently. “It’s the elderly woman who comes to her craft class with unexplained bruises,” Brice said. “It’s the couple who lose thousands of dollars through a telemarketing scam. And it’s the quiet-speaking gentleman, who while living with family, appears ne-

glected and uncared for.” Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan said he has encountered abuse and exploitation of seniors in his own family, and it comes up frequently as he has traveled B.C. asking seniors and their caregivers what they need from government. In an interview, Sultan acknowledged that the funding is a modest effort to bolster volunteer efforts. “It is a beginning step, but it also reflects the fact that this problem can not be solved topdown,” Sultan said. “It will have to be solved bottom-up by mobilizing many different organizations around the province.” The B.C. government also provided $1.4 million last year to the B.C. Association of Community Response Networks, for prevention and education to reduce elder abuse and neglect. Katrine Conroy, NDP critic for seniors, said she agrees with extra support for the information line, which is supported by lawyers and other experts to help seniors find help. “Anything that’s done to eliminate elder abuse is a good thing,” Conroy said. “The community resource networks are really good organizations.” She added that the government’s proposed Seniors’ Advocate is inadequate, because it is not an independent office and won’t deal with individual cases. Sultan said the advocate is to help develop policies to protect seniors, and a federal study being funded partly by the program will provide the information needed to do that.

FRHP receives $250K grant from fed gov’t Washrooms and maintenance facilities at Fraser River Heritage Park will be upgraded with a $250,000 grant from the federal government. Other areas to be improved include the electrical, sanitary storm drainage and water supply systems. Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission MP Randy Kamp made the announcement Monday, and said the money is coming from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF). “Our government is pleased to support communities across the country by investing in projects like the Fraser River Heritage Park,” said Kamp. “Our investments in community infrastructure will benefit Canadian families and communities immediately, helping to support job creation, boosting economic activity, as well as creating safe and accessible facilities for years to come.” “Visitors have been asking for these improvements, and we’re now able to meet them, and to enhance their experience at Mission’s ‘jewel,’” said Klaus Werner, president of the Mission Heritage Association, which operates the local park. The CIIF supports community projects which improve accessibility for existing infrastructure. The government has committed $150 million over two years for the fund.

OPINION

Published and printed by Black Press Ltd. at Mission at 33047 First Ave., V2V 1G2

All too political

It seems job security is not one of the benefits that comes from working for Premier Christy Clark. Last Monday, British Columbia’s multicultural minister John Yap stepped aside after a document proposing a series of initiatives to win the favour of ethnic voters in the run-up to May’s provincial election was leaked late last week. The premier’s deputy chief of staff, Kim Haakstad, was the first to take the fall for the memo. Haakstad, whose name had the misfortune of appearing atop the controversial memo as its author, has been a part of premier’s inner circle of advisors and confidants since June, 2001, when she served as Clark’s executive assistant. Of course wooing specific interests isn’t a new election strategy. Heck, it’s pretty much what every election campaign is about. But for a government that can’t seem to get out of its own way as it stumbles toward a spring campaign as the underdog, the 17-page document that outlines ways to win favour with ethnic communities offends on two fronts—by using non-political government resources and information for political purposes, and by patronizing ethnic groups. It’s true these strategies are no doubt discussed in caucus and campaign strategy meetings of parties of every political stripe. But the memo suggests the BC Liberals clearly crossed a line. Opening the drawer to expose the BC Liberals’ dirty laundry is embarrassing. For that someone had to take the fall. Just as members of the premier’s communications team have paid the price for her previous gaffes. The way things are going, they’re just beating her to the unemployment line. - Burnaby NewsLeader

Ethnic strategy is nothing new T he B.C. legislature session ends this week. It can’t come quickly enough for Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberals. This is also the week we see the rest of the fallout from “ethnic-gate,” as the latest controversy over partisan activity by political staff has been clumsily labelled. A disgruntled former BC Liberal caucus staffer handed the NDP opposition an internal memo setting out a strategy for ethnic “outreach” that strayed into forbidden territory, suggesting that ethnic-friendly government events could be staged and participants’ names collected and turned over to the party. “This secret plan clearly demonstrates the Liberals are deliberately folding government resources and staff into their party’s campaign machinery, despite rules that forbid this,” thundered NDP house leader John Horgan. “We’ve seen this before, with the Liberals’ efforts to run a secret committee to subvert the public process around Burnaby Hospital, and in the attack website created by caucus staff and launched by

Q

the Liberal party.” Casual observers might see this as a disturbing new development in misuse of public resources. It’s disturbing, all right, but it’s hardly new. The “attack website” Horgan refers to is a case in point. While a website targeting NDP leader Adrian Dix was being cooked up in the BC Liberal bunker, a similar effort was being developed in NDP research down the hall. This partisan message detailed all the worthwhile things that could be done with the government’s $15 million To advertising budget singing the praises of the government’s “jobs plan.” But this one carried the logo of the NDP caucus, so it was within the rules. The average person, seeing two groups of staff on the public payroll, each slagging the other, might not detect much of a difference. The biggest headline from the leaked memo was its ref-

erence to generating “quick wins” for the election campaign by staging apologies for historic racial injustices. It mentioned how former premier Gordon Campbell delivered a solemn apology in 2008 for the decision to turn away a ship carrying Sikh refugees from Vancouver harbour — shortly after the outbreak of the First World War. What does a modern provincial premier accomplish by apologizing for a federal immigration decision made in 1915? Why would another premier now feel the need m to apologize for a federal “head tax” imposed on Chinese immigrants from 1885 to 1923? The answer is obvious. Again, don’t expect much to change with an NDP government. Asked last week if he would stage an apology for the head tax, Dix delivered a well-rehearsed history lesson that made it clear he is anxious to do so.

Has the ethnic memo changed how you will vote in the of the Week: provincial election?

Welcome to politics in an urbanized, globalized media culture. It’s more important to put on a show than to do the right thing. Hospitals are announced three times before they’re built, then announced again when they are staffed. Politics is a lucrative career. Former BC Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt is one of the additional “outreach” staff hand-picked by Clark. The BC Liberals retort that the NDP caucus has a similar staffer named Gabriel Yiu, who has taken three leaves of absence to run for MLA, and is in practical terms a professional NDP candidate. Yiu is running for a fourth time in Vancouver-Fraserview, having been defeated in 2009 by former West Vancouver police chief Kash Heed. This latest scandal might produce meaningful reform. But the misuse of public money to further the interests of political parties is deeply entrenched.

YOUR VIEWS Public works crew served Mission well Editor, The Record: I would like to take an opportunity to properly and publicly thank my public works crew for their efforts through the 20 or so hours beginning at about 4:30 a.m. March 1. Staff began answering calls that morning when the effects of the strengthening pineapple express began to take its toll on the municipality. Virtually every drainage system ran at capacity throughout the event, and our sewer system also struggled to stay ahead of the increased flows. Throughout the day, staff dealt with overflowing ditches, various levels of flooding, plugged culverts and several landslides. Four roads were temporarily closed due to mud slides and instabilities and

emergency works were required to reestablish and re-open those. O c c a s i o n a l l y, workers would return to the yard for another layer of dry clothes. Opportunities for a bite to eat were taken while driving between sites, but like the rain, they continued well into the night. From staff in the office answering calls and processing work requests to each and every worker in the field, their dedication and professionalism should be recognized for their efforts here. I thank you all for the commitment and dedication you’ve displayed to our community and for the refreshed spirit and inspiration you’ve provided me.

Learn about kidney disease Cedarbrooke thanked Editor, The Record: Kidney disease is under-recognized, incurable, and undetectable in its early stages. Yet, the disease is one of the fastest growing epidemics in the western world. In fact, one in 10 Canadians are affected by kidney disease. In B.C. alone, over 240,000 individuals have the disease and many don’t even know it because symptoms in the early stages are silent. If people knew early enough that they had kidney disease, or were at risk, many could pre-

vent or delay dialysis or transplantation. During March, Kidney Health Month, The Kidney Foundation of Canada, B.C. branch, will work to raise awareness about the risk factors for the disease and the importance of early detection. On March 14, World Kidney Day, the B.C. branch and its volunteers will join organizations and communities around the world who will be participating in events and promotions to help raise awareness and education about

kidney disease. Patients will be celebrating the discovery of the life-saving treatment, dialysis, and the developments in transplantation. Over 3,000 Kidney Foundation volunteers will also be canvassing homes across the province during our annual March Drive Campaign to raise much-needed funds for critical programs and services.

WHO?

CHERYL FRANK, Grade 6 teacher at Colleen & Gordie Howe Middle School, who brings students to the Envision Financial Run for Water every year.

How to fix a leek.

WHAT?

Cheryl teaches free downloadable curriculum from the Envision Financial Run for Water website that uses water as a reference point to teach students global citizenship, healthy living, as well as fulfill some social studies and English B.C. ministry outcomes.

Police continue to issue tickets to thousands of B.C. drivers for using hand-held devices. Texting at red lights is also prohibited. RECORD FILE PHOTO

WHY?

$35 provides clean water for one child for life.

“I was first introduced to Run For Water as a runner in community run programs. After my first year as a participant I learned about the school level of participation. It was an instant sell for me, and when I introduced the idea to our staff they were all eager to have our school participate. Our primary reason at the time was for community involvement; to have our students take part in

Leeks have a mild onion flavour that add a subtle deliciousness to any savory dish. Cut the root end and green leafy end off, leaving just the white section. Slice lengthwise and allow the sections to separate as you rinse thoroughly with water. Chop, sauté and add to your soup, biscuits, stew, or other recipes.

Talking and texting behind the wheel continues to be a major road safety problem, but Attorney General Shirley Bond has rejected raising fines or taking away mobile phones to deal with the problem. The tough new measures were suggested last week by Victoria Police Chief Jamie Graham, after an enforcement blitz by B.C. police forces resulted in about 6,000 tickets being issued in February. Graham, chair of the B.C. Association of Police Chiefs’ traffic safety committee, suggested police should also have the authority to seize a phone for 24 hours for a first offence, and for several days for repeat offences. Graham also referred to $350 fines

available for other traffic safety violations. The current fine for mobile phone use while driving is $167. “I’m certainly not considering the seizure of cell phones,” Bond said Monday. “I am concerned, though, that we continue to see distracted driving in the province.” Bond said taking away cell phones would create privacy problems, and she is also not convinced that increasing fines would have the desired effect. “It’s not unlike seat belts,” Bond said. “It took a long time for people in our province to make that a normal habit.” B.C. imposed new Motor Vehicle Act regulations against using hand-held mobile devices in January, 2010. The rules allow phones to be used with a headset and a single-button function to make calls.

Premier endorses Black’s Kitimat heavy oil refinery

The Mission Record Thursday, March 14, 2013 9 The Mission Record Thursday, March 14, 2013 9

Dave Babych Cliff Ronning

By Tom FleTcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark surprised the opposition last Thursday with a statement in the B.C. legislature endorsing a proposed heavy oil refinery near Kitimat. Clark emphasized that the project would be subject to the five conditions about environmental safety and aboriginal consultation that she has demanded for heavy oil pipelines. But she praised the job creation potential and added that a refinery would help supply the “fair share” of benefits for B.C. that is her most controversial condition. David Black, owner of the Black Press newspaper group in B.C., Alberta and the U.S., set up a separate company called Kitimat Clean Ltd. last year to develop the refinery plan and seek permits from the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. Black announced this week that he is finalizing details for $25 billion in financing

and purchase agreements for the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel that the plant would produce. “Our government takes the view that we should work together to address legitimate environmental and safety concerns

and find a way to get to yes on projects that will grow our economy,” Clark said, adding that the B.C. government has been working with Black’s team to secure a suitable site. Energy Minister Rich

Coleman said there is Crown land in the Kitimat area held in an industrial reserve that could be leased or sold to the company for use of the land.

Refinery estimated to cost $16 billion From Premier Page 9

Black’s proposal specifies a 3,000-hectare site 25 km north of Kitimat that is on the proposed route of the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. With capacity to process all the pipeline carries, it would be one of the largest refineries in the world. Black said this week he is pessimistic about the prospects for Enbridge, but the refinery could bring in Alberta oil sands crude by rail, or another pipeline acceptable to aboriginal groups along the route. The $16 billion refinery would require another $9 billion in construction, including six product pipe-

lines to Douglas Channel to load ships with refined fuel, and a natural gas pipeline to produce power, fire refining equipment and supply hydrogen for a new process to refine heavy oil. NDP energy critic John Horgan said he plans to meet with Black next week, but he was dismissive of Clark’s endorsement. “I think it’s important that the public understands that this is a long, long way into the future,” Horgan said. “And for a government that’s down to 68 days left in its mandate before people vote again, it seems odd to me that we would have taken time in the legislature today to read a press release about a proposal that may not happen until after the next election.”

Proposed B.C. refinery switches tech Environmental assessment to be revised By Tom FleTcher Black Press

Newspaper publisher David Black is revising his B.C. environmental assessment application for a large-scale heavy oil refinery in Kitimat to use a new refining process to reduce its environmental impact. Black gave an update on the project to a B.C. Chamber of Commerce breakfast in Vancouver last Wednesday, saying he has found most of the $25 billion in financing needed, and buyers for the refinery’s fuel products. He said customer contracts and

financing are to be finalized within two months. Black also released a Mustel Group poll conducted in February that shows three out of four people support the idea to refine crude oil in Kitimat. A 57 per cent majority continue to oppose the Enbridge Northern Gateway plan to pipe crude to Kitimat and load it on ocean tankers. Black said rejection of pipelines would only push crude oil producers to use rail transport to reach his refinery and other buyers. The new process makes synthetic fuels from the heavy tar left over from conventional oil refining, instead of extracting the carbon as petroleum coke as is done in Alberta and elsewhere. Black said in an interview there are currently four other

heavy oil refineries under construction around the world, two in Africa and two in Saudi Arabia. All are about the same scale as his proposed Kitimat Clean plant, processing about 400,000 barrels per day of heavy oil using “cokers” that extract the coallike byproduct. A refinery of that size would fill 100 rail cars per day with petroleum coke, which is typically burned for metal production and contains sulphur as well as similar carbon intensity to metallurgical coal. Shell’s refinery at Anacortes, Wa. currently processes Alberta oil sands crude using cokers, selling the petroleum coke for aluminum refining. The new process adds hydrogen from natural gas to combine with the excess car-

bon in heavy oil, increasing the amount of gasoline, jet fuel and diesel produced. “It will be 50 per cent cleaner than any other refinery in the world,” Black said. “It’s going to cost about $3 billion more, and I’m going to organize the money for it.” The process received a Canadian patent last fall for Calgary-based Expander Energy. It adapts a process developed in Germany in the early 1900s to convert coal to synthetic gas, which was relied on for vehicle and aircraft fuel by the German armed forces while their conventional fuel sources were embargoed during World War II. Expander’s modified process converts bitumen, petroleum coke, biomass or municipal solid waste into gas products used to make synthetic diesel and jet fuel.

Cross-border shopping not always the cheaper option

Hundreds of people line up regularly at the Sumas border crossing to visit the U.S. to make purchases. RECORD FILE PHOTO

“You’re now paying a total of 20 per cent on your purchase,” he said. “There are ways around it, if you want to apply for a refund, but who does it?” Jesson said B.C.’s imminent April 1 return to GST and PST poses many questions that have not yet been answered, but if the provincial sales tax works the way it used to, consumers who cross-border shop will be liable to pay provincial sales tax on their U.S. purchases. “If you go across the line and buy a pair of jeans you’re supposed to send seven per cent tax to the provincial government,” he said. “That’s the way it was and while there haven’t been details about the return to PST, I can’t think they’d change that.” Another cost factor for travelling to the U.S. is the need to purchase additional medical insurance from a private insurer. An accident, or other medical emergency, could arise during even the briefest cross-border trip. According to B.C. Ministry of Health figures, while B.C. pays $75 per day for emergency in-patient hospital care, the average cost in the U.S. often exceeds $1,000 a day — and can run as high as $10,000 a day in intensive care. “Anybody who goes across the border without coverage is not thinking,” said Jesson. “Once you’re in their system, it’s going to cost you. Just to go

Remember a time when it was easy to cross the border into the U.S.? That was before 9/11. Security concerns on both sides of the border now mean all documents must be in order and up-to-date, all of which comes with a price. But there are other costs to travelling across the line, according to Mel Jesson, co-owner of the Black Bond Books chain, who frequently crosses the border on business. While low prices in the U.S. may tempt Canadian consumers, it’s easy to underestimate the amount of gas you’re burning driving south of the border, or, worse still, sitting in a lineup waiting to cross into the U.S. or get back into Canada, he said. “I don’t think a lot of people do the math on this,” Jesson said. “If you go down to the U.S. with an empty tank and fill up down there, you may be doing alright, but it doesn’t always work out like that.” Buying a meal during the trip is another way to cancel out the savings on consumer goods. And, cross-border shoppers are paying an 8.5 per cent tax on U.S purchases, Jesson said, and could be liable to pay the current HST on top of that when they return — quite apart from duties which could be charged on the goods.

Still good to carry passport: CBSA From Cross Page 14 down to Mt. Baker to go skiing has wound up being a tragedy for a lot of people.” Having a Nexus identification card — which allows low-risk pre-approved travellers to use designated Nexus border crossings without being regularly questioned by customs and immigration officers — has been touted as one key to beating lengthy, and costly, border-crossing waits. But there can be hidden hassles and costs in connection with obtaining a Nexus card – which is far from an automatic privilege. Cost for a card that is valid for five years is $50 — but according to Service Canada there may be a six- to eight-week wait for eligibility. An applicant will have to supply photocopies of original identification documents, such as a passport and birth certificate. But there are other factors that may create obstacles to receiving a card.

Canadian applicants must meet the admission requirements of both the U.S. and Canada, must have resided in Canada for at least three consecutive years and be ready to undergo background security checks using Canadian and U.S. law enforcement databanks. You must have no criminal record or must have been granted a pardon, or ‘record suspension’ as it is now known. Past violations of customs or immigration legislation will also result in the application being red-flagged. Applicants who pass the initial security check must then be interviewed at a joint Canada-U.S. Nexus enrolment centre, at which a photograph, fingerprints and an iris scan are taken. U.S. Customs and Border Protection says its goal is to process Nexuslane travellers within 15 minutes. Like all goals, it’s sometimes missed. “I have a Nexus card and there are times that I’ve been at the border and seen the Nexus lineup is 30-40 cars, with a half-hour wait,” Jes-

son said. “I’ve skipped over to the regular lane because it was actually travelling faster.” Newest development in cross-border travel is the Enhanced Drivers Licence (EDL) which ICBC is promoting as a one-piece proof of identity and citizenship which obviates the need for carrying a passport. The cost of obtaining an enhanced EDL includes both a basic fee and an extra fee for the enhanced version. According to ICBC, a two-year original licence or renewal will cost a total of $66, while a fiveyear original licence or renewal will set you back $110. To upgrade your licence to an EDL outside of the normal renewal period costs $52, the same price as an EDL for a senior driver seeking either a two-year original licence or a five-year renewal. Non-drivers seeking an Enhanced Identity Card (EID) can expect to pay $70 for a five-year original card, and $50 for a five-year renewal. But even with a Nexus

card, and an EDL or EID, Canada Border Services Agency still recommends carrying a valid passport as the best guarantee of avoiding hassles in making any cross-border trip. And, according to Service Canada, the price of new and renewal passports will be significantly higher under new fees that come into effect on July 1, when Canada officially adopts electronic passports, known as ePassports, containing readable electronic chips. At present, cost of a new or renewal passport, valid for five years, is $87 for a 24-page document and $92 for a 48-page document. Passports for children aged three to 15 years cost $37 or $39 for the larger passport, while documents for children younger than three years old are $22, or $24 for the larger version. As of July 1, Canadians can apply for an adult passport valid for 10 years for $160. For a five-year passport the cost will be $120, while a children’s passport will rise to $57.

Q. One of my friends told me that she’s using some kind of “natural” system in her hot tub now, and she doesn’t need chlorine or bromine any more. What’s the story? A. Ah yes... the enzyme folks are back again. These systems have come and gone a number of times over the years, they usually fold when someone sues them for getting an infection from unsanitary water. Enzymes have a place in Hot Tub maintenance, they’re good at bio-degrading

body oils and cosmetics, but in terms of protecting bathers from bacteria, they simply don’t. If you look at the instructions that come with these “natural” systems, they now state that Health Canada minimum levels of Chlorine MUST be maintained for bather safety. What it comes down to is that enzyme products can be a small part of overall Hot Tub maintenance program, but they’re not a “stand-alone’ product. Chlorine or Bromine are still your best friend when it comes to keeping your Hot Tub clean and safe.

New Riverside ITT students are searching for work placements

College hosting open house on March 28 Riverside College is opening its doors to the public March 28. Students from all of the college’s programs will be hosting the community, offering tours and showcasing their skills from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. that day. Everyone is welcome and a special bus has been reserved for each of Mission’s secondary schools. Grade 11 and 12 students are encouraged to speak to their school counsellors or administrators in order to sign up. “This is an exciting school,” says student Sarah Jenkins. “And we want everyone to know what we’re accomplishing here. Riverside has changed many of our lives, so we don’t want it to be a secret.” Riverside offers a unique blend of services that set it apart as a college and these will be on display at the open house. “From our support services to our blend of unique programs to our staff, we’re offering a model that fully promotes student success,” explains principal Cathy Anderson. “It’s a big day for us every year, because the students get to take the lead and show why they are proud of this place.” The open house will include demonstrations and orientations from each of the college’s trades and career programs, including hairstyling, business sup-

port, community support work, carpentry, plumbing, warehousing and automotive service. Riverside’s two newest programs, information technology and esthetics will also be highlighted. “Whenever people visit the school, we hear the same things,” says Anderson. “They are amazed at how large, bright and new this fa-

Riverside College has expanded its trades and career training opportunities to offer a fivemonth information technology technician (ITT) program.

Graduates will learn

cility is. They are surprised at the technology and supports we are providing to our students. But most of all, they are impressed by the students themselves.” All are welcome. For information call 604-814-0446 or visit goriversidecollege.ca. The school is located at 33919 Dewdney Trunk Rd.

Mission’s two shelters, Haven in the Hollow and Rivendell, are asking for donations of hotel-sized toiletry items. These may be dropped off at Mission Community Services, 33179 Second Ave., Monday to Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call 604-826-3634 for more information.

terms are an opportunity for the students to practise hardware and software skills as technicians, and learn how they can find a job in the information technology industry. The volunteer organizations can use the work placement as the evaluation for a potential employee.” Potential work placement non-profit organizations are invited to call Greg McNeill at 604814-0446.

Politicians, Abby Heat come together to help food bank

Left to right: MLA Randy Hawes, Green Party of BC candidate Aird Flavelle, BC NDP candidate Preet Rai, BC Liberal candidate Simon Gibson and Mission Mayor Ted Adlem have volunteered to help raise money for St. Joseph’s Food Bank through an Abbotsford Heat ticket-selling competition.

Not available for online orders. Valid until March 31, 2013. Please mention offer when ordering. One offer per order. Please present at time of pick-up or delivery. Some conditions may apply.

A ticket-selling competition between politicians will help raise money for St. Joseph’s Food Bank. Starting this weekend, and running each Saturday and Sunday until April 7, MLAs Randy Hawes, Marc Dalton, Green Party of BC candidate Aird Flavelle, BC Liberal candidate Simon Gibson, BC NDP candidates Mike Bocking and Preet Rai, plus Mission Mayor Ted Adlem will be working the crowds at a number of locations locally to sell Abbotsford Heat tickets. The AHL club has donated the tickets for the April 12 game to St. Jo-

seph’s for this fundraising event. Proceeds will go towards ongoing construction of the Seventh Avenue building. “This is a great opportunity to support the St. Joseph’s Food Bank in a meaningful way and have some fun, too,” said Ron Leger, volunteer building project manager. “Our shared goal is straightforward at St. Joseph’s Food Bank: feed the needs of those without. Mission is a caring community. This event is another opportunity for each of us to show we care and truly make a difference.” Ticket-selling teams will be in place from 9

a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays at Safeway, Save On Foods, Real Canadian Superstore, Fraser Valley Building Supplies and Canadian Tire. St. Joseph’s Catholic Church started distributing food to Mission residents in 1990. By 2008, the church basement no longer sufficed and planning began for a standalone structure. The Catholic archdiocese made space on the Mission property, and ground was broken in 2010. A budget of $650,000 was formed, and Leger says only another $124,000 is needed.

Envision’s Full Cupboard makes commitment to St. Joseph’s A Mission food bank will benefit from a financial institution’s community program designed to raise food, funds and awareness for these entities. The Full Cupboard, run by Envision Financial, is committed to raising at least $1 million for food banks across the province, including St. Joseph’s on Seventh Avenue, within the next decade. St. Joseph’s, and 10 other food banks in 10 communities, will receive a $1,000 donation to start the campaign. Envision will also make a $5,000 donation to Food Banks BC. “The statistics speak to the staggering need for an increased focus on supporting our local food banks,” says Envision Financial president, Shelley Besse. “In the past five years, there has been a 23 per cent increase in the number of people using food banks in B.C.” The Full Cupboard is Envision’s signature cause, Besse stated. Following the success of Feed the Valley, the signature cause of Val-

ley First, Envision’s regional partner in the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson valleys, the program was developed as a long-term community investment program at Envision Financial and will run in conjunction with the organization’s already well-established community support initiatives. “St. Joseph’s Food Bank served 5,787 people in 2012, which was comprised of 3,714 adults, 1,978 children ages four and over and 95 children under the age of three,” says John Poston of St. Joseph’s Food Bank. Mission residents can support The Full Cupboard by donating non-perishable food items or making cash donations at Envision Financial, located in the Junction. Cash donations of $20 or more are tax deductible and can be made as one-time contributions, through regular, pre-authorized payments or online at foodbanksbc.com/get-involved/thefullcupboard.

Temporary closure to recreation areas in municipal forest Hayward Reservoir trail and Stave Dam trail open during Bear Mountain closure From time to time, certain areas in Mission’s Municipal Forest need to be closed to public access for a variety of reasons: tree falling, harvesting operations, road construction and blasting, forest fire hazard to name a few. There are some temporary closures currently on Bear Mountain, just north of Richards Avenue throughout March and April, and by May the main access road to the hiking trail at Hoover Lake (across from the landfill) will be closed 24/7 to enable us to complete tree harvesting

in time for higher summer use. For your safety and to be in compliance with WorksafeBC requirements, please obey all signs posted onsite and do not enter any areas where crew and equipment are working. There are many hidden hazards in active forestry operations including lines under extreme tension, possibility of run-away logs during harvesting, equipment operators being unaware of your presence, shifting log piles, etc. If you are looking for other hikes in the general area, please visit the Hayward Reservoir trail and the Stave Dam trail less than one kilometre to the west of the Hoover Gate. Thank you for your cooperation and patience. For more information, please call the Forestry Department at 604-820-3762 or visit the website at www.mission.ca/forestry.

Dix promises review of pay parking at hospitals Pay parking at Mission Memorial still a possibility, says FHA By Jeff Nagel Black Press

NDP leader Adrian Dix is promising to examine whether the policy of charging patients and visitors to park at Lower

Mainland hospitals is appropriate. But he’s not guaranteeing an NDP government would handle the pay parking issue any differently and says the province can’t simply give up the money that’s generated. “I take it seriously and I’m going to review it,” Dix told Black Press in an interview. “But you have to find the revenue. It’s not very much, but you still have to find it.” The Fraser and Van-

couver Coastal health authorities took in $19 million from parking fees in 2011 – less than one per cent of their combined budgets. “If you’re going to say no to that revenue then you have to find other revenues,” Dix said. “It’s not as easy as saying ‘I’d like people to park for free.’” The cost of paying to park at hospitals has been a growing source of complaints in recent years from people who argue the fees are unfair.

“It’s a cash grab,” charges Peter Kirsebom, an 82-year-old South Surrey senior who says he was going to start a petition the last time he got worked up about the issue. “In Delta, you don’t pay anything,” he said, referring to that municipality’s bylaw banning pay parking at the hospital. He said his appointments at the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre often run half an hour late, forcing

him to shell out for two hours instead of one. “That’s eight bucks – it’s too much.” Maple Ridge’s mayor recently vowed, after similar local complaints, to explore whether his municipality could follow Delta’s footsteps and either ban pay parking or persuade Fraser Health to drop the fees. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid told CTV last month it was difficult for health authorities to absorb parking costs and the current

system was unlikely to change. The Canadian Medical Association Journal in 2011 argued pay parking amounts to an unfair user fee that can disrupt patient care. It said parking charges should be waived at least for patients as they add avoidable stress and may cause some to abruptly end a consultation to feed a meter and avoid fines. Dix said there are arguments for dropping the fees or altering the struc-

InterIor to Lower MaInLand transMIssIon Project constrUctIon UPdate Construction work for the new transmission line continues. Current activities are focused on: • Vegetation and tree clearing along the right-of-way • Tower foundation installations • Tower assembly As part of this work, helicopters are required and currently in service in some areas. The contractor has obtained the necessary permits and permissions and is in compliance with Transport Canada requirements. Wherever possible, helicopters follow routes and schedules that minimize disturbances to residents. The ILM project will expand the capacity of the transmission system that brings power from generation sources in the North and Southern Interior so that BC Hydro can continue to deliver clean and reliable energy to homes and businesses in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

The new 247 kilometre 500 kilovolt transmission line will parallel an existing 500 kilovolt transmission line between the Nicola Substation near Merritt and the Meridian Substation on Westwood Plateau in Coquitlam. The planned in-service date for the transmission line is 2015.

ture, but added rural B.C. residents “face more dramatic issues” because of the centralization of hospital services in more distant centres. Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward said about a third of the parking fee revenue collected goes to providing parking services – paving, lighting, security and management fees to a pay parking firm like Impark. The remaining twothirds goes into general health system funding. Thorpe-Dorward said there are no plans to change the system, nor has the health authority given up on extending pay parking to the ‘free’ hospitals in Delta and Mission. “We still have a goal over the long term of introducing pay parking at those sites to offset the costs,” he said. “But it’s not something we’re pushing or pursuing.” He said health authorities have numerous programs where patients and others may get discounted monthly parking passes and in some cases complimentary parking. Renal dialysis patients, for example, get free parking permits. Fines issued to patients whose time on the meter ran out because their appointment ran too long can be reversed on compassionate grounds, he added. Part of the rationale for pay parking is that it encourages stall rotation, so some spaces are available when people need them and they aren’t hogged by users from surrounding businesses. Delta’s bylaw against pay parking has also blocked TransLink from charging at its park and ride there.

Mission Elks round up $6,000 in fundraiser Mission’s business leaders, civic politicians, school principals and other local celebrities were put in the Mission Elks jail last week until they raised enough money for their release. The round up was swift and efficient, said Elks member Roy Archer, and the payoff was close to $6,000. Those arrested were forced to wear prison garb and spent about a half hour in jail to try to raise money for their bail. Canadian Tire’s Vicki Gould raised the most with $1,200,

while Save On Food’s Jim Shaw, who had forgotten to collect pledges earlier, managed to gather $100 with a few quick phone calls, and offered to stay in longer until he contributed more. “It was short notice for a lot of people,” said Archer, who was pleased with the enthusiasm from participants. The money collected will primarily go towards scholarships for local students. About $1,000 will benefit the B.C. Elks Children’s Camps, and $200 will go to the national charity.

RUN FOR WATER MARATHON / HALF MARATHON / 10K RUN / 5K FUN RUN

WHO?

PETE SCHOFIELD, a runner since 2007. He is a new grandpa, salesman at Abbotsford Tool Centre and an ultra-marathoner.

WHAT?

WHY?

“Because I can. Last year after the ultra I realized the only limitations we have are the ones that are in our minds. The Run for Water weekend is just one way to push beyond those limitations. It is a means to bring water to thousands of people who need it. The fundraising can scare people, but I see it just as I do my running; limitations are only mental!”

March 16 -17 Ethiopia suffers one of the lowest water supply and sanitation coverage of any country in the world with only 22% of the population having access to improved drinking water and only 13% to basic sanitation.

Mission’s Rotary Clubs have improved the community for decades through such efforts as wheelchair donations to the Dr. Stuart Pavilion (right), and new furnishings to the Mission Memorial extended care unit’s respite room (far right), to name a couple. SUBMITTED PHOTOS

Rotary Clubs across B.C. honoured by municipalities Mission council joined other B.C. municipalities in proclaiming Feb. 24 to March 2 Rotary Week in honour of the 100th anniversary of Rotary in British Columbia. In 2012, B.C. Rotary Clubs donated $8.5 million to charitable works in communities and internationally. Mission’s two Rotary Clubs have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the district since their inception in 1946. The local hospital, health centre, tennis courts, the outdoor pool, sports parks, Silverdale Wetlands, and Heritage Park’s Rotary Heritage Walk are only a few of the facilities that the organization has contributed to over the years. In addition, Rotary has promoted youth development through activities, such as the Soap Box Derby, the annual Children’s Festival through Rotary leadership camps, graduation scholarships

and exchange trips. Seniors and those who are ill have benefitted through contributions to hospice, the extended care units, wheelchairs and Seniors’ Week events. Internationally, Mission Rotary Clubs work to improve health in third world countries through water and dental projects, eradication of polio, and sports equipment, technology and necessities of life to those who are most needy. Rotary has had a partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with a goal of completely eradicating polio within the next five years. Rotary cannot do its work without the aid of the community supporting its fundraisers. On Saturday (March 16), the two clubs will host a St. Patrick’s Day Dance at Silverdale Hall, and tickets are available at World Odyssey Travel or from any Rotarian.

Spring show now on stage In the quiet little village of Ffyffe Magna in the verdant hills of England, Lady Florence Andering-Ffyffe is expecting a pleasant visit from her old friends the Millsbys. But when a body shows up in the delphiniums, Lady Florence’s evening is definitely ruined. Not only are the police running roughshod over her house, but members of the household keep getting attacked and her unfortunate daughter Enid keeps making eyes at the entirely unsuitable (but dashingly handsome) Detective Inspector Volper. And that’s just the first two scenes of Death Among the Delphiniums. This murder mystery offering from Thea Bates is Opening Nite Theatre Society’s latest production, and will be on stage until March 17. The show is being directed by Mahara Sinclarire and features local favourites like Tracey Anderton as the razorsharp but warm-hearted Mrs. Millsby, and Shawn Jodway as the unwitting gardener who has to deal with the trauma of having a mistress who destroys the gardens as well as a dead body which crushes his delphiniums. Death Among The Delphiniums runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. until March17. Tickets are $12, and are now available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue. Opening Nite Theatre is located at 33223 N.

A REPORT CARD OF LIFE

In order to help children while in school, parents will often tell them to work hard and do their best to help prepare them for their future. In addition, the students receive report cards on scheduled days to document their progress in the various classes in which they participate. Adequate studying and preparation for tests is essential for learning, gives the child more confidence and is associated with less anxiety and fear each time these report cards are issued. Similarly, our walk through life is preparation for our final report card, when someday we will have to meet our Heavenly Father. Each day of our lives, we are given tests that can help make us better individuals. Although we do not receive ongoing reports on the conduct of our lives, we should have a strong sense that we are doing exactly what God wants us to do. Are we being compassionate and kind to others? Are we forgiving and generous with our loved ones and friends? Do we reflect a good example to our children and coworkers? Do we try to follow God’s laws and attend our church or synagogue on a regular basis? By being a better person today we will have less anxiety and fear of the day when we are eventually called to give an account of our lives. And someday, we may hear the Lord tell us, “you have been a good and WEST HEIGHTS faithful servant, come into GOSPEL CHAPEL my house and share my SUNDAY happiness.” 9:30 am - Remembrance Meeting, every Sunday.

RUN FOR WATER MARATHON / HALF MARATHON / 10K RUN / 5K FUN RUN

WHO?

CHERYL FRANK, Grade 6 teacher at Colleen & Gordie Howe Middle School, who brings students to the Envision Financial Run for Water every year.

WHAT?

Cheryl teaches free downloadable curriculum from the Envision Financial Run for Water website that uses water as a reference point to teach students global citizenship, healthy living, as well as fulfill some social studies and English B.C. ministry outcomes.

WHY?

$35 provides clean water for one child for life.

“I was first introduced to Run For Water as a runner in community run programs. After my first year as a participant I learned about the school level of participation. It was an instant sell for me, and when I introduced the idea to our staff they were all eager to have our school participate. Our primary reason at the time was for community involvement; to have our students take part in

something that brings pride to the City of Abbotsford. Our reason now has greatly shifted. Run For Water teaches global citizenship and social responsibility in a very interactive and hands on way. I truly enjoy seeing the pride that students get in being a part of a cause that directly helps children across the world. Children helping children is such a powerful message.”

A COMMUNITY EVENT WITH A GLOBAL CAUSE ABBOTSFORD’S 6TH ANNUAL PREMIER RUNNING EVENT

RUNFORWATER.CA

Artists are encouraged to submit works for FV show The Mission Arts Council, Reach Gallery Museum, the Maple Ridge Art Gallery and the Abbotsford Arts Council are inviting visual artists living in the Fraser Valley to submit artwork to the second Fraser Valley Regional Biennale. The art exhibition, which will be hosted by the galleries and regional arts councils this summer, will present a wide range of works that reveals the diversity of visual art practices local

to the Fraser Valley. Submissions in all mediums will be accepted until March 29, 2013 including painting, drawing, installation, photography, sculpture, printmaking, video, film and applied arts. Visual artists living in the Fraser Valley region from Hope to Langley are invited to apply. Applications can be downloaded at thereach. ca, abbotsfordartscouncil.org, and any of the participating organizations’ websites.

The Fraser Valley Regional Biennale is a collective art exhibition that celebrates and explores local and regional visual art-making. The project was created in 2011 to present a wide range of artwork by both emerging and professional artists throughout the Fraser Valley. The first regional biennale showcased the work of more than 80 artists. For more information on the Fraser Valley Regional Biennale, visit thereach.ca.

Local magician on Zoink’d A Mission magician will be featured in YTV’s Zoink’d at the end of March. Norden the Magician says he did a funny trick on the show that the audience and judges seem to like, but he can’t reveal any more. Zoink’d takes your average TV talent show, turns it upside-down and covers it in goo. It’s a chance for adults to showcase their weird and wacky talents, and it’s up to a panel of kid judges to decide if they win the title of Zoink Master in a messy elimination. Each adult has one minute to en-

tertain our panel of kid judges. Once 20 seconds are up, if a judge is not entertained, they can hit “zoink” and vote to eliminate a performer. If an act gets less than three “zoinks” before one minute is up, they get points from the judges. The performer with the most points at the end of the show wins, but if they get three or more “zoinks” they’re out with a river of purple goo. Norden has been entertaining children and families since 1999. For more information about him, visit www.magicshows.ca

Annual event revamped for 2013 A

fter hosting six years of successful Business Awards, the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce is using its 120th anniversary year as a reason to drastically change it up. “The awards highlight the business leaders and trailblazers in Mission,” notes Chamber President Elyssa Lockhart. “The business community is evolving so the awards are evolving with it.” The awards have been pared down from eight categories to six and give every business and organization in Mission an opportunity to prove their excellence. The six new relevant awards are: Intrapreneurial Excellence An established business that continues to have a strong presence by developing or creating new business programs, platforms and opportunities while continuing to be a contributor to the local community. Power of Small An emerging or existing innovative small business that has been operating for a minimum of two years and exemplifies entrepreneurial spirit and vision with new products, services or process. Local Focus A business with significant local focus in their

enterprise; be it through manufacturing product locally, or retailing/utilizing products and/or services produced locally and community involvement. Customer First A business that demonstrates special consideration for its customers, ongoing employee training and a high level of understanding and commitment to service excellence. The hallmark of this award is being friendly, honest, innovative, approachable customer service on a consistent basis.

Community Builder A non-profit, club or organization that is active in the local community by making a positive difference, involving active collaboration and engagement with others beyond who they serve. President’s Award Nominated by the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce, this award will be given to a business or leader who exemplifies excellence and leadership in the business community that may go unnoticed. The President’s Award will not be accepting

any nominations from the public and Chamber board directors will not be eligible. “There are many unsung leaders in our community, we are hoping to address their recognition through this award,” states Lockhart. Not just new awards, the whole process of how nominations are accepted and judged is being modified. “We want everyone to participate so we encourage the community to get involved,” said Lockhart. Anyone can nominate any business or organization that meets one of the five open award cri-

teria. If a business feels that they meet them, they can even nominate themselves. However, the proof will be in the pudding as the community will be able to vote on who they believe best meets the award criteria. Points collected from the voting plus a task force of past award winners that will review nominees’ information will narrow the nominee pool to a top three. These three finalists will then be visited by a panel of judges who will score the finalist on more refined award criteria. Each judge’s scores will be tabulated independently

so no one can steer the final selection. “There was a lot of fear in our judging process, where all nominees needed to do a presentation before a judging panel,” discloses Lockhart. “Now we are hoping to ease nominee’s fears by allowing them to provide information through the process and meeting them on their own terms in their place of business.” Taking it right out of the box, the Chamber is even moving the date and venue of the gala. This year’s event will be held Saturday, June 8. This is to allow everyone a chance to prepare for the formal event without the rush of leaving their workday. “For now we are keeping the venue a secret,” said Lockhart. “All I can hint at is that it reflects how we were pioneers in 1893 and pioneers now.” Look for more hints on the venue, entertainment and how the awards are being turned upside down in the coming months. Nominations are open and the Chamber encourages everyone to nominate their favourite store, restaurant, business, club or organization in one of the five categories. To nominate go to www.MissionChamber.bc.ca and click on the Nominate a Star Performer.

year already, where has it gone? On March 21, I will hand over the reins of our Chamber to a new president and at the same time, round out the final year of our highly successful three-year strategic plan. It has been quite a ride and I am proud of all that we have achieved together. Ours is a dynamic Chamber. Just this month alone, I have chaired a task force to revamp the Business Excellence Awards to ensure they remain relevant to the Mission business community; welcomed new organizational policy that will bring value and give direction to our committees and task forces; and presented a provincial government lobby kit on tax initiative implementation practices to other Fraser Valley Chambers of Commerce. I thank the Board of Directors for working diligently to be innovative and collaborative, in order to best serve our members and the local business community at large. With programs like Pay It Forward… Shop Local and our recent focus on connecting members at speed networking events, I am sure the MRCC will continue to grow and flourish. I look forward to the ongoing collaboration between the MRCC and Mission Public Schools, building job skills and opportunities for our youth. Additionally, I am excited to learn what comes next, as the board develops a new multi-year strategic plan with member input. So again, thank you for allowing me to be at the helm of such a successful organization! Elyssa Lockhart PRESIDENT

Mission Toastmasters: Good for business, education and fun By Kathleen Rake

For 26 years, Mission Toastmasters has been making its mark helping members grow both personally and professionally. It is one of the most established International Toastmasters clubs in the Fraser Valley and is proud to have a founding member who still attends meetings regularly. “Really, at the risk of sounding cliché, there is something for everyone here,” said 30-year-old Sean McStay, president of Mission Toastmasters.

Every Toastmaster gets what he or she needs from the club. Some members come to improve their public speaking by overcoming stage fright, erasing the ums, ahs and likes, increasing voice projection, sharpening listening skills, and developing the ability to speak spontaneously. Other members come to compete as well as sharpen skills. Jo Priestley, artist and past president of the Mission club, recently won the District 21 (comprised of at least 285 clubs throughout B.C.) Table Topics competition. “Then there are those who

come to Toastmasters to take full advantage of the educational opportunities,” added McStay. “But at the end, we all come for the fun. It’s not always about standing up in front of a crowd and giving a speech. Some members use the speaking skills they learn to give persuasive presentations at work.” Laura Midan, an eight-year veteran of Toastmasters, credits the organization and the public speaking and leadership skills she learned there with her successful bid to secure her current position as an education coordinator

with the Abbotsford/Mission Recycling Program. “This position involves conducting workshops, providing presentations and liaising with community representatives,” she said. “I highly recommend Toastmasters for individuals wanting to advance in their careers and further their educational goals.” The club meets Tuesdays, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at Cedarbrooke Chateau on Seventh Avenue. Guests are welcome. For more information, call 604-217-1173 or visit them on Facebook or at MissionToastmasters.com.

120 YEARS STRONG

Mission continued to grow during Depression

I

n 1909 Mission Railway Station was built, sitting at an important junction that not only saw passengers and freight moving across Canada, but also the most western point to and from the USA. Rail brought the first department store to the city. DesBrisay’s was established and served the local community and visitors for 55 years; setting the standard for local business. This attracted more business like jewelers, a shoemaker, bank, pharmacy, and movie theatre. With the Mission Fraser Valley Record (now Mission City Record) close by, the downtown of Mission began to take shape. Thriving during the early 1920s in part to the many berry farms in the area, Mission soon became known as “The Strawberry Capital.” This drew up to 3,000 pickers to the area at the height of production and saw the introduction of canning and preserves plants. The Board of Trade recognized the opportunity and the Strawberry Festival was born. Advocating for an automobile route, the Board of Trade successfully got the Mission Bridge open to automobiles in 1927. Further links continued to be established with Southern Fraser communities and the USA as Mission became the shopping hub in the Valley. Though the Great Depression hit hard between 1929 and 1939, Mission continued to grow, with its forest resources. Started in 1929, BC Electric’s Ruskin Dam offered additional economic relief.

Luyken named to second all-star team The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades’ Aieisha Luyken, who hails from Mission, has been named to the 2013 Canada West second all-star team. Luyken, a fourth-year guard, led the Cascades in scoring with 294 points for a 13.4 point per game average. The kinesiology major led UFV in assists with 100, steals with 52 and recorded 77 total rebounds. Luyken averaged 30 minutes per night while starting 21 of the 22 regular season games. This is her first selection to the Canada West women’s basketball Elite 10 all-star team. Luyken joins Samantha Hill (2007-08) and Tessa Klassen (2011-12), as Cascades that have been selected to the Canada West all-star team. “The team is really pleased that Aieisha has been recognized as a Canada West all-star,” said UFV head coach Al Tuchscherer. “Aieisha does whatever is needed of her to win games and lead our team. She influences both ends of the floor, is a lock-down defender, a lethal scorer, and always comes up big when we need it most. “It is a privilege to coach such an unbelievable athlete and we’re fortunate to have her leading or team on a nightly basis.”

Mission youth invited to apply to attend May 11 cancer forum The Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon, is calling on Mission youth between the ages of 19 and 25 to apply to attend a provincial Youth Forum in Vancouver May 11. The forum is a venue for youth to share their ideas on health and cancer prevention as well as provide suggestions on what changes they would like to see. “The Canadian Cancer Society is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year and this forum provides us with an opportunity to hear from future leaders of change who can set the stage for the next 75 years of cancer prevention,”

explains Tracy Hoskin, health promotion coordinator, Canadian Cancer Society, Fraser Valley region. The forum will also allow youth to learn about cancer prevention and build skills to use within their communities to take action on relevant health and cancer prevention issues. “This is a chance for youth from across our province to take part in continuing a 75-year legacy of cancer prevention,” says Hoskin. “We know that about half of all cancers can be prevented. Youth are a vital part of stopping cancer

before it starts and we need their help.” The forum will take place at SFU’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue. Youth who are B.C. residents, active or involved in their community and interested in developing leadership skills are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants must also be committed to contributing to action in their home communities after the youth forum concludes. Travel expenses will be covered. Applications are due March 15, and are available through cancergameplan.ca. Successful applicants will be notified by April 1.

Nominations sought for awards

Tidy premises Grade 8 Hatzic Middle Secondary School students recently cleaned up litter in the neighbourhood to show that they actively care for their environment and the local community. This is part of a school-wide We Care campaign to create a more positive culture and promote positive interactions both at school and in the community. This will be an ongoing activity. The We Care campaign includes using good manners, making positive comments, and having kind interactions to create a positive atmosphere among staff, students, and the community. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Do you know an individual or a group who has made the Fraser Valley a better place to live? Those people who make everyday contributions to their community but may not be recognized? Consider nominating them for the Betty Urquhart community

service award. Urquhart was one of the first employees of Fraser Valley College (now UFV) and believed strongly in volunteering and giving back to the community. While Betty passed away in 1995, UFV keeps her memory alive by honouring a person

or group that exemplifies her commitment to life-long learning and community. Past winners of the annual Betty Urquhart award include Mission resident Tara Scheirer for her work organizing the Warm Zone, a temporary cold weather homeless shelter.
