DAN KINVIG Abbotsford News

Jasper Moedt, who rose to basketball stardom locally at Yale Secondary and UFV, struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts after an adverse reaction to medication following shoulder surgery last spring. Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

In mid-June of last year, during a vacation in Mexico, Jasper Moedt awoke at sunrise and tiptoed up the stairs to the roof of his hotel. It was clear and sunny, with just a hint of a breeze. The 22-year-old was in his swimming trunks, and the rooftop hot tub bubbled invitingly. But he walked past and hoisted his 6’7” frame onto the cement wall bordering the roof. His feet were longer than the wall was wide, and his toes curled over the edge. Three storeys below, people were on the sidewalk. They didn’t seem to notice him.

He was seriously considering stepping off. For the better part of three months, his emotional state had swung from crippling depression to exhilarating euphoria. He couldn’t understand what was wrong, nor could he bring himself to share it with anyone. They’d think he was crazy. That he was even up on the ledge was a surprise to him, given his fear of heights. But the struggle for equilibrium had worn him down and had given way to utter hopelessness. A small gust of wind blew. Maybe if it blew hard enough, he thought, it would make the decision for me. He lingered on the edge for maybe five min-

utes, but it felt like an hour. He was sweating, even though it wasn’t hot enough for that yet. His hands shook, then his body began to shudder. It wasn’t until he heard a young couple making their way up the stairs that he snapped out of his reverie and stepped back to safety. ❑ ❑ ❑ Moedt was the kind of bright kid who could almost make you buy into the notion of youthful invincibility. An imposing presence at 6’7”, 240 pounds, he was a friendly giant – gregarious, articulate, easy-smiling, easygoing. Continued on A4

Canucks purchase AHL team

Speculation that Vancouver affiliate could end up in Abbotsford Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford AbbotsfordNews NewsTuesday, Tuesday,April April2,2,2013 2013

City to contribute $8.3M to infrastructure work gested, which hampers our local economy,” said Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman. He said more than $4 million of the city’s portion will come from federal gas tax funds. The remainder will have to be found in the budget. The construction of an overpass on Vye Road and traffic flow improvements in the area have been on the city’s priority projects list for more than two decades. “We need this. It’s the type of common sense stuff that we need to spend our money on because it means better transportation of goods and that means money and jobs in our economy.” He added the federal and provincial partner-

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

A new, $25-million project to create an overpass over railway tracks on Vye Road and improve southbound traffic at the Huntingdon border crossing will cost the City of Abbotsford $8.3 million. Representatives from the federal, provincial and municipal government gathered in Abbotsford. Both the province and the federal government will also contribute $8.3 million. “As the community of Abbotsford and the entire Fraser Valley region have grown in recent decades, we’ve seen this vital transportation corridor become more and more con-

Abbotsford News

The Vancouver Canucks confirmed Monday that they’ve purchased the Peoria Rivermen of the American Hockey League. News of the deal between Canucks Sports & Entertainment and the St. Louis Blues, previous owners of the Rivermen, broke on the weekend, initially reported by the Peoria Journal Star. “This is an exciting opportunity for the Canucks,” owner/ chairman Francesco Aquilini stated in a press release. “The purchase of the Peoria franchise allows us to take an important step and assume full control of our minor league development program.” The deal is subject to approval by the AHL, and the Canucks press release indicated the team will not have further comment at this time, out of respect for the approval process. There’s much speculation that the Canucks could station their AHL team in Abbotsford, replacing the Calgary Flames-affiliated Heat, who have played out of the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre the past four seasons, during which the team struggled to fill enough seats to be profitable. Under a 10-year agreement, the Heat are guaranteed $5.4 million annually, with the city making up any deficit. That has cost local taxpayers $3.58 milliion so far. Rumours bubbled to the surface in late February that Utica, N.Y. could be a potential landing spot for the Heat should the Flames choose to move them. The Canucks’ twoyear affiliation agreement with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves expires at the end of this season, and the Wolves would be a potential partner for the Blues as they search for an AHL team to link up with for 2013-14.

ship made the project too good to pass up. As part of the project, the NEXUS lane to the U.S. border crossing at Huntingdon will be extended 1.8 kilometres, a two-lane overpass over the Southern Rail and CP Rail lines will be constructed on Vye Road near Sumas Way to improve safety, and a new crossing of both rail lines will be built along McConnell Road, connecting Riverside Road to Highway 11 (Sumas Way). Abbotsford MLA Mike de Jong said when the “long talked about” overpass becomes a reality in the next few years, traffic backup in the area will no longer occur. The project is expected to go to construction in 2014, with completion in the fall of 2016.

After-hours dumping costs charities Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

The large sign at the MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) Furniture & More store at 31877 South Fraser Way clearly lists the hours that donated items can be dropped off. It also states that they should be left at the MCC Plaza across the street. But every weekend, staff return to the furniture store on Monday morning to find a pile of items – such as beds,

couches, toys and clothing – left outside the building. Store manager Bob Dyck said the problem is that most of the objects have to be thrown out because staff and volunteers do not know their history or because they are not saleable. This results in extra disposal costs for the charity – for example, $8 per mattress or box spring. An on-site container where unusable items are deposited costs $350 a week to empty.

Deb Lowell of the Salvation Army said that agency sometimes faces the same issues at its thrift store on Gladys Avenue. She said some people drop off junk items after hours because they do not want to pay the disposal costs themselves. Dyck and Lowell encourage the public to drop off items only during the listed hours, so that a receiver can ensure they are suitable to sell. Both locations are closed for drop-offs on Sundays.

Someone dropped these items at the MCC on South Fraser Way after-hours on the weekend, creating cleanup costs for the charitable organization.

How to choose the Right Electrician if you have any of these 6 problems and you want them fixed today!

Unlike the plumbers I know, electricians rarely get emergency calls. Our equivalent of a flood in the basement is a fire in the attic . . . and you don’t call us for that. You call 911. So you’re probably not reading this because you’ve got an electrical emergency. Instead, you have an electrical problem like one of these... 1. “My good friend (or

3. “I have a breaker that doesn’t stay reset.” husband) tried to do it.”

My apologies to the guys reading this, but it’s true. A big part of our business is finishing up the electrical projects you start... from outlets to ceiling fans. And that’s okay, although it would be easier and probably cheaper if you’d call us first. We have the tools, experience and know-how to do the job right, start to finish. Call us for proven professional electrical expertise.

2. “I need a ceiling fan or chandelier installed.” We install lighting fixtures, fans, outlets, dimmers and more. Our work is guaranteed to meet city codes, and we use only copper wiring (no aluminum). Want to know why we use only copper wiring? Call us.

If your breaker keeps tripping, you don’t have the equivalent of a flooded basement, yet. But, you do have a potentially dangerous problem involving the electrical circuits in your home. Don’t ignore it. Call us!

4. “I’ve got an ugly internet or cable TV wiring stapled to my baseboards.” Let us do the job right. Snaking wire through walls is an art, a science, a skill... and our specialty. It’s also something few electricians, cable companies or internet providers like to do. But you’re in luck when you call us. We’re World Champions at snaking wire without knocking holes in your walls.

5. “Smells like something’s burning.” Overheated appliances and electrical circuits are a problem you don’t want to ignore. A call to us now could save you a call to 911 later.

6. “We’ve got a ‘mystery switch’.” We love getting this call. If you’ve got a switch that you’ve never been able to link to an outlet or circuit, call us to solve the mystery.

Soccer club refunding tickets

Firefighters battled a blaze in a home on Bevan Crescent on Sunday afternoon. The fire, which is still under investigation, caused extensive damage. There were no injuries.

Association fined for not having lottery licence

Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford soccer club is refunding ticket sales for its annual lottery, but states that returning the money will be a “challenge.” A statement by the association’s president John Werrell was posted on the club’s website last week, stating that the board of directors had announced the postponement of the annual lottery due to a licensing issue. A second post explains how those who have purchased tickets can be refunded, but adds the “refund process will be a challenge with so many tickets being sold and with varying degrees of information on the ticket stubs.” The statement, on the association’s website marinersfc. ca, indicates that those who bought tickets can email MFMFCLotteryInfo@ shaw.ca to arrange for a refund. The money return

comes in the wake of a complaint filed to the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch of the B.C. government against the association, which runs a yearly raffle for a vehicle donated by an Abbotsford dealer. The association formed a partnership with the dealership in 2011, and is now known as the Magnuson Ford Mariners FC (MFMFC). The gaming commission refers issues to police for review or investigation when there is a possibility the circumstances fall under the Criminal Code. A spokesperson for the government agency confirmed the matter was referred to the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) following their investigation into the complaint. Sgt. Elly Wright, a spokesperson for the APD, said a fine of $500 for running a raffle without a licence was issued, and the file is now closed. The online post from the association states

the board is “working with the gaming commission to resolve the issue as quickly as possible,” and that “according to the policies of the gaming commission and an unknown timeline regarding the resolution of this issue, we are obliged to refund all monies taken in while tickets were being sold.” Dan Village, the vice-president technical of the association, said the issue arose from a wrong licence number being issued on the tickets. “The gaming commission has told us to pull all the tickets back and return all the money to the people because there is an incorrect number on our tickets.” A spokesperson for the commission said the soccer club did not apply for a permit for the lottery. Village said the draw, which was supposed to take place on March 2, is postponed until the tickets are returned and the association can apply

for another licence. Village said the lottery had generated about $12,000. Last year, they realized about $17,500 from the raffle. “This is a big deal to us. We’ve got a big name community sponsor on it. It’s a nice fundraiser for us and it’s something we rely on to keep youth soccer happening here in Abbotsford. It’s an important thing for us and we’d like to do it correctly,” he said. Village said the issue seems to be an administrative error. Former MFMFC general manager Brad Nicholl recently resigned from his position. He declined to comment on the matter, although he stated it had nothing to do with his resignation. The soccer association has about 1,600 to 1,700 players, on teams ranging from ages five to 15. The association is part of the Fraser Valley Youth Soccer Association.

Vimy Ridge ceremony A candlelight parade and vigil to commemorate the Battle of Vimy Ridge takes place in Abbotsford on Tuesday, April 9. The event, sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion, begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Abbotsford cenotaph in Thunderbird Square on Veterans Way. The annual parade involves veterans, soldiers, cadets, police, firefighters and sheriffs. Candles will be placed in memory of those who served in Vimy Ridge. The band of the 861 Silverfox air cadet squadron will provide music.   The Battle of Vimy Ridge took place in France from April 9 to 12, 1917. It was the first battle that was carried out by all Canadian units under Canadian command, which were victorious against three divisions of the German Sixth Army. There were 10,500 Canadian casualties in the four days of fighting; 1,300 died at Vimy.

Grads given the gift of a gown Program assists students who cannot afford the costs of going to prom

Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

With the graduation season approaching, Talia’s Closet is looking for assistance to help get students to prom. Talia’s Closet, a program operated by the Youth Resource Centre (YRC) and Abbotsford Community Services (ACS), collects dresses and tuxedos from donors in the community and then provides the outfits to grads who don’t have the financial resources or family to purchase their graduation outfit. The program is looking for donations of dresses, jewelry, clutches and shoes. The YRC will be setting up a space at the Sevenoaks Shopping

Centre from April 5 to April 14 near the food court. They will collect clothing donations, but are also looking for community members to donate their time to do makeup or hair during the graduation season. “We are getting lots of calls already from grads to come and look at dresses that we have,” said Tally Clement, a street outreach worker in the YRC. “But we need more and newer outfits. Dresses donated three years ago might be out of style this year and for girls, it is so important to fit in, to look right.” Talia’s Closet has relied on the generosity of donations, not only for the students, but for the space that they have operated out of since starting the program three years ago.

“People have been really generous with dresses and people have been really generous with space,” said Simone Maassen, supervisor at ACS. She said the program will also accept financial contributions, which would provide more freedom to cover extra costs of operation. The program was started by Linda Hamilton, with just 12 dresses. It has since grown to about 100 gowns, in a variety of sizes. The program is free, and the organization works with local high school counsellors to find students who need the service. For more information, contact Simone Maassen at the YRC, 604859-7681 ext. 258, or Linda Anderson at 778-878-5129.

30150 Automall drive, Abbotsford

The debate over a controversial proposal to build a YMCA in Abbotsford will be back before council on Monday, April 8. Fred Thiessen, a local businessman, made a presentation to council in January against the city’s proposed $17.5-million contribution to the project. The meeting drew about 150 concerned citizens, who heard presentations from Thiessen and a representative of the YMCA. At Monday’s meeting, Thiessen will make another presentation, restating his opposition to the project. The YMCA proposal was last discussed by council at the January meeting, but the process was postponed to allow new city manager George Murray – who took up his post in February – time to review the plan. In the interim, Thiessen launched a campaign to encourage residents to “say no to the YMCA gift.” He has collected donations and endorsements from businesses and community members to run ads in local newspapers encouraging residents to voice their objection to the proposal. The “informational public notices” encourage community members to contribute financially or attach their name to the ad, which directs readers to a website, saynototheymcagift.com. The website outlines the group’s opposition to the project, stating they strongly object to any potential assistance for the YMCA project. The website says it is against the community charter to give tax dollars to any business, including a not-for-profit such as the YMCA.

Trout limit decreased for Mill Lake anglers Daily catch lowered to two

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Anglers at Mill Lake are now facing a new fish possession limit. As of April 1, the daily quota for rainbow trout taken from the lake is reduced from four to two. The lake, which is an urban fishery, is managed by Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and stocked by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. The lake is stocked with trout frequently, especially in the fall and spring months. It is not stocked in July or August when higher surface water temperatures reduce the chance of survival. A notice posted at the lake informs anglers of the quota change. Brennan Clarke, public affairs officer for the ministry, stated in a written release that “the ministry stocks Mill Lake with trout each year which gives fisheries biologists an accurate idea of how many fish are in the lake and maintains a consistent number of trout from year to year. “Due to increasing angler effort, the ministry has reduced the allowable catch from four trout per day to two trout per day so that the same number of fish will serve a greater number of anglers.”

Fishermen who wish to comment or have questions,

can email them to SCFishWildlife@gov. bc.ca.

Sometimes your name in print isn’t so good Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand There was a time in our not too deep and dark past that the denizens of Abbotsford would revel in the fact that our town was mentioned in the Vancouver media. It seemed, in a way back then, that finally our existence had been recognized . . . that we were, for a brief period, no longer a rural backwater. We got our name in print, if not in lights. However, thanks to progress, growth and the Bacons, Abbotsford has become much more recognizable and identifiable in the Metro media. That noted, most people living west of Port Mann still aren’t sure where we are, even though our burgeoning burg is now but 40 minutes from the concrete canyons of “the city.”

For some in the environs of Vancouver, we are the cheap option to the city’s housing prices . . . “well Sally, we can’t afford more than a shoe box here, so (sigh) I guess we’ll have to move all the way to Abbotsford to put a roof over our heads and a piece lawn under our feet.” Then I read the Sun’s front page story last week about the top 10 salaries being dished out from our tax dollars to executives in Crown-owed agencies. The coterie of million-dollar men, of whom I have long and vicariously wished to be among, though due to age and lack of motivation will never achieve, may actually deserve their remuneration. They are, for the most part, running huge organizations and, for example, if you want perhaps the world’s largest non-military ‘navy’ that is BC Ferries to operate properly, you better have people better than the drivers of the Queen of the North at the helm. If, however, you take issue with these salaries, some perspective might be

needed by comparing what hockey players earn simply to put bums in seats and commercials on television. So, as I turned from the front page to the continuation of the story, I was a little surprised to see, under the headline “The highest-paid public ser-

Has Abbotsford grown so quickly it needs to boost its senior executive numbers by 62 per cent in one year alone? vants in B.C. (all in CAPS by the way)” a graph which had, at the top of the leader board, Abbotsford. Seems that our city hall has British Columbia’s highest growth rate of bureaucrats earning more than $100,000 a year – a whopping 61.8 per cent growth this past year over the previous one. Those moving into six figures

jumped from 55 employees to 89 in just 12 months! Again, I don’t deny the necessity of paying anyone fair value for their worth, but has Abbotsford really grown so quickly that it needs to boost its senior executive numbers by 62 per cent in one year alone? And with that rate of “growth,” along with myriad other increases in the cost of operation of our city, the tax burden and attendant price hikes here may eventually be sufficient that people will, instead of moving from Vancouver, move to Vancouver for an affordable place to live. But, before I have the mayor and councillors down my neck, I will admit that the numbers above only indicate salary growth, and not necessarily an increase in bodies. Someone earning $99,000 in 2011, and now makes $101,000, will have met the increase threshold, but is not a new hire. The point, however, is ... does Abbotsford really need so many people earning six figures? markrushton@abbynews.com

Pipeline risks The Black Press editorial (March 19) “Some realities about oil” made a number of good points, but it greatly oversimplified a complex subject.   In particular, it made no distinction between the types of products transported by pipeline and the people who may oppose them.   It was not fair to assume that those opposed to diluted bitumen and other crude oil pipelines also oppose LNG pipelines and plants.  They each do have their own set of risks that must be

addressed separately, but the risks associated with pipeline ruptures are vastly different.   Regarding climate change concerns mentioned, the article did make a valid point about gas-fired power plants being less polluting than coal-fired ones. If we can assume that China would convert their plants, shipping them LNG would be a step in the right direction.   I would guess, however, that the suggestion is largely hypothetical.   Ken Summers

vaged a victory in overtime. Joe Colborne scored the winner, using a Heat defender as a screen on a two-on-two rush and sniping top-corner on Abbotsford goalie Barry Brust. Akim Aliu gave the Heat a 1-0 lead at 10:42 of the first period, but the Marlies stormed back to take control with a trio of goals over a 12-minute span bridging the first and second periods. Those tallies came courtesy Brad Ross, Jamie Devane and Greg Scott, and Scott’s marker Vidleione at 6:52 on ws.com of the abbyne second spelled the end of Heat starting keeper Danny Taylor’s night. He was replaced by Brust for the second time in three games. Abbotsford mounted a lighting-quick comeback in the final frame, getting goals from Sven Baertschi and Ben Street in the first four minutes to knot the score. But Colborne snuffed the Heat in OT. Abbotsford (3129-10, 72 points) claimed three of a possible six points on their three-game road trip last week – they fell 5-3 to the Hamilton Bulldogs on Wednesday, and notched a 4-3 win in a rematch with the Bulldogs on Friday. Those results moved the Heat up one spot to 10th in the Western Conference, but they’re still a long shot to qualify for the post-season. The teams they need to hurdle to earn a topeight playoff berth – the Oklahoma City Barons (74 points) and the Chicago Wolves (73) –  both have five games in hand. The Heat have just six games left on their regular season schedule, and up next is a FridaySaturday home set vs. the Grand Rapids Griffins (7 p.m. both nights, Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre).

The Abbotsford Magnuson Ford United premier men’s soccer team defeated the Port Moody Gunners 3-0 in the Pakenham Cup final on Sunday afternoon at South Surrey Athletic Park. The Pakenham Cup is one of Canada’s oldest amateur athletic competitions dating back to 1909, and the last time an Abbotsford team last won this coveted trophy was in 1995. After a nervous start for both teams, the crowd of over 400 was treated to some good, competitive soccer worthy of a Cup final.
