Dix looking for Abby win Sets sights on Abbotsford West as a riding the NDP can take Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Adrian Dix was in Abbotsford Wednesday morning to unveil more of his party’s platform and to support his local candidates. A crowd of suppporters cheered outside Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, as the BC NDP leader told them his party represents the Fraser Valley. While Abbotsford has long been a Liberal stronghold, Dix said he has spent a lot of time in the Valley and

DIX

believes the NDP will “succeed in constituencies that they have never won before.” “Vancouver Point Grey, Premier Clark’s riding, Abbotsford West – the finance minister’s riding (MLA Mike de Jong) – these are ridings that I’m running to win,” said Dix. He’s not looking at past results, but rather said the party is taking a more “expansive view” and is running to win everywhere. During Wednesday’s visit, Dix unveiled the next plank in the party’s

platform, which includes building a sustainable economy and creating new jobs. The NDP plans to create a $100-million, needs-based non-repayable student grant program to help students and increase the number of skilled workers in B.C. Dix called B.C.’s skills shortage a “major impediment.” The NDP also announced a oneyear freeze on BC Ferries rates until an audit can be performed. For more, visit abbynews.com.

he valley’s best and brightest visual arts students offer impressive, diverse displays for next week’s opening of UFV’s Bachelor of Fine Arts grad show. Vivid colour runs throughout this year’s show, kicked off with an opening reception Friday, April 26, at 6:30 p.m. in the Visual Arts Gallery, Building C, room C1043 on UFV’s Abbotsford campus. The show runs until May 17, and the public is invited to drop in anytime between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday for a free self-guided tour of the exhibition. “This year we’re seeing a lot of use of vibrant, almost psychedelic colour,” reveals Visual Arts instructor Grace Tsurumaru. Each student decides his or her own theme — some formulating their approach in September, or even earlier. Works include paintings, dresses, video, sculptures and more. “It’s a great opportunity to see what up-and-coming young artists are up to, including what themes and issues they’re dealing with in these modern times,” says Tsurumaru. “Anyone with an interest in the arts will enjoy this show.” Nearing graduation, students’ works have become more complex and critically developed, she

of her peers. “We’re a tight group with a good range of disciplines.” Graduates of the program follow a variety of paths, including getting their teaching certification, working in related jobs in the field of arts, establishing themselves as working artists, travelling, or advancing into a master’s degree program. “It’s all a part of that journey to find your place in this world and to discover who you are as an artist,”

Tsurumaru says. Hailing from Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Langley and Mission, this year’s fourth-year UFV Bachelor of Fine Arts students include: Lindsay Craig, Jenessa Galmut, Chalie Howes, Jessica Laibahas, Lauralee Lamarche, Majd Mansour, Jenaya McChesney, Charissa Smith, and Jeff Stackhouse.

Drawn by a vision Imani foundation supports kids in Kenya

Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

K

im Lee of Abbotsford was plagued with dreams about children pulling at her and grabbing her in a frantic state of urgency. She sensed that they needed her help – but who were they? Discussions with her pastor eventually led to Kim following these visions to Kenya, where she felt drawn after beginning adoption proceedings for a child from there. The adoption fell through but, in June 2010, Kim and her husband Geoff travelled to the African nation, where she was inspired by the people she met and the things she saw. Kim now runs the Imani Orphan Care Foundation, which provides sponsorships for children in need, supports the In God Our Faith home in Malindi on the Kenyan coast, and is working toward building an orphanage in the rural area of Ogembo. Kim and Geoff – the parents of two boys, ages nine and 10 – came across the Malindi orphanage during their 2010 visit to Kenya. The home is occupied by children who have either been orphaned – mainly due to the AIDS epidemic in Africa – or who have been abandoned because their families cannot afford to care for them. It is run by a woman whom the kids call Mama Sussy and her husband, Samuel. “It felt like family,” Kim said of her first visit there. “It was so welcoming

and you could just feel the love in that home. It felt like we were supposed to do something for them.” Imani (the Swahili word for “faith”) provides items such as beds, bedding and food. Plans are underway to build a school on the site, as well as to purchase 20 acres of land for a project that will teach the kids how to farm for their own needs and to sell the food they produce. A woodwork shop and hair salon are also in the works to provide skills training for the kids, who will eventually be re-integrated into their villages. Imani is also raising funds to build a similar home in the Ogembo area of Kenya, where many kids live on the

streets, some as young as two or three. “They walk from village to village and house to house, and they try to get food and care,” Kim said. Some of the children are taken into homes, where they are used as slaves. Many others become hooked on inhaling shoe glue to numb their hunger pangs and keep warm. An orphanage currently exists in the area, but it is inadequate. Kim visited the facility in February 2012 and was saddened by the conditions. “I saw lots of the kids didn’t have shoes, and many of them had worms in their feet because of bad sanitation.” The kids were sleeping on wooden slats with no mattresses, and the home was dilapidated. Imani supplied shoes for all the youngsters, as well as bedding, mattresses and bio-sand filters for clean water. The foundation is close to purchasing a five-acre plot of land to build a new orphanage. About $15,000 has been raised toward the approximate $22,000 cost. Imani Orphan Care Foundation raises its funds through online donations and various events, including yard sales and the annual Marathon of Hope hockey tournament, this year taking place on Sept. 7. Kim points out that only seven per cent of the funds raised go toward administration costs. For more information, visit imaniorphancare.com or email geoff@imaniorphancare.com.

New plans for Centennial Library ADBA would lease space to arts council, host community events

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Downtown Business Association has its sights set on the old MSA Centennial Library. During its annual general meeting on Thursday night, the ADBA announced it has submitted a proposal to the City of Abbotsford to lease the old building. “We have big plans for it, so we really have our fingers crossed,” said Tina Stewart, executive director of the ADBA. Opened on May 12, 1967, the MSA Centennial Library

the ADBA plan would allow the arts council to have one entire floor of the building for an art gallery and shop. The proposal is part of the ADBA’s focus on revitalization in the downtown core. The old library sits adjacent to Jubilee Park, which has been undergoing a slow transformation from a place where drug deals and homeless were the norm, back to a family area. “The back of the library that is right on the park, we’re wanting to put a big patio out there that will invite people to use it.”

Wall to be transformed into memorial Bateman students to create nature-themed mural

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Students and teachers from Robert Bateman Secondary School, along with community volunteers, have joined forces to create a new public mural. A large wall on Laburnum Avenue (down the road from RBSS, by Palfy Park) will be transformed into a symbol for those who have been lost, and as an artistic celebration of nature. Bateman fine arts teacher Sherry Dunn came up with the idea, which began in 2011. After the successful completion of a parking lot mural by Bateman students using stencils, the wall became the logical choice for a new piece of art. Dunn thought it would be the perfect place for a naturethemed mural that celebrated some of the school’s achievements. Often used for graffiti, the wall was an ongoing issue for the city and the Bateman Community

Association. Dunn realized by working together, the mural project would be a success. While the project continued to move forward, tragedy struck the school in December of 2011. Bateman student Cheryl McCormack passed away after using ecstasy, and her classmates claimed the wall as their own. “The kids used the

wall as a memorial and when I saw that, I thought I really don’t want to be the person to paint over that,” said Dunn. But then she had a new idea. Dunn knew that other students had been memorialized on the wall in the past. “Why don’t we do a sanctioned memorial to all of the students we’ve lost?” Dunn first spoke to

the McCormack family and asked what they thought, and what Cheryl’s favourite animal was. It was a deer. The same questions were asked of the other families until Dunn had a list of animals and birds that would represent those who had passed. In all, there are seven memorials (six students and one teacher)

that will be incorporated into the mural. Dunn said at first, many students were unhappy that the previous memorials were going to be painted over. “Then they started to see that it was going to be something really beautiful and something that would be there for a much longer time and there was an opportunity for everyone to be involved in the process of creating it,” said Dunn. On May 11, a special paint day is scheduled to take place as volunteers come together to transform the first portion of the wall. The event runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and stencils will be used to ensure a smooth and precise application process. The school is looking for volunteers to get involved. No experience is required.

NewsBytes inquest into man’s death A coroner’s inquest into the policeinvolved death of an Abbotsford man is taking place this week in Burnaby. The inquest for Christopher Leslie Kampman, 37, began yesterday and is scheduled until Friday at the B.C. Coroners Service courtroom. Presiding coroner Vincent Stancato and a jury are hearing evidence from witnesses to determine the facts surrounding Kampman’s death. Kampman, 37, suffered cardiac arrest while in police custody and died the following day in hospital. He was found in the backyard of a home in the 2300 block of Rosewood Drive in Abbotsford on July 1, 2011 after police received a report of a prowler just before 3:30 a.m. At the time, Const. Ian MacDonald said that two officers arrested Kampman, who was combative and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. One of the officers requested an ambulance, and additional officers arrived to assist. Kampman was searched and placed in the back of a police car while awaiting the arrival of the ambulance. MacDonald said Kampman “abruptly stopped moving or making sounds.” Officers opened the back doors to the police car and observed that he was no longer conscious. MacDonald said police had not used a Taser or baton on Kampman, who was transported to hospital, where he died on July 2.

cascade lays off 38 Abbotsford’s Cascade Aerospace has issued layoff notices to 38 employees, mostly aircraft maintenance engineers. Justin Currie, Cascade’s chief operating officer, said a shift from high volume commercial to military contracts has created a greater need for program management, engineers and analysts, rather than floor labour. He said it’s a cyclical business. “Peaks and valleys are unfortunately a reality of the aerospace and defence business,” he said, adding business is good, just changing. Employees were given 30 days notification and the company is working with the union to explore other options for the employees being released.

Dog park upgrading project Funding begins for Gladwin Road site Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Dog owners in Abbotsford are being encouraged to assist two community members who are working towards upgrading an existing dog park. Kendall De Menech, who runs a hydrotherapy program for dogs called K9H2O, and Liza Whiteside, owner of the new Bosley’s Pet Food Plus on Whatcom Road, are starting fundraising efforts to improve an existing two-acre, off-leash dog park located between Okanagan Drive and Haida Drive, off Gladwin Road. They hope to improve several aspects of the park, including adding fencing around the site, creating a specific area for small dogs, an activity field, and a covered shelter for owners. De Menech said the park is next to the Discovery Trail, which is frequented by joggers, cyclists and people of all ages.

Dogs enjoy the off-leash dog park by Gladwin Road. Two community members are spearheading efforts to upgrade the area.

She said a fence would increase safety for the dogs and the people who use the area. “If a dog gets in trouble because it gets overly excited because a jogger is going by, it’s not fair to the jogger and its not fair to the dog.” De Menech said she wants it to be a park that is safe and enjoyable for all who use it. De Menech lives near to the park and often chats with other dog owners about the proposed plans. She said they are hoping

for community support and engagement as the project moves forward. De Menech and Whiteside have been working with and receiving guidance from the city’s parks and recreation department, which De Menech said has been “excellent.” They could wait for the city to put a fence in the park, but decided to take a more active role in fundraising to get the project accomplished sooner. Input, donations

and volunteers are welcome. Whiteside said there will be monthly fundraisers at Bosley’s, with the first on April 27 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will allow community members to learn more about the plan and will include a number of fundraising efforts. Owners can have photographs of their pet taken, with the proceeds going to the park, and there will be vendors with samples for pets, a hot dog sale and raffles. They will be holding a fundraiser at Glen Bar & Grill, located at the Fraser Glen Golf Course on South Parallel Road, on July 27 and hoping to hold a public forum at the park later in June. To donate, volunteer, or provide input, contact De Menech at 604-864-2284 or by email at k9h2o@ shaw.ca, or Whiteside at 604-859-9056 or by email at store1027@ bosleys.com.

QUESTION

WebTalk

OF THE WEEK

Abby runners safe in Boston bombing

Do you think a 26-storey twin tower project proposed for Gladwin Road is an appropriate development for that area?

Absolutely tragic! Prayers to all impacted by the attack in Boston. A dark day for sure... Kelly Voth

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Thank you for this timely article and excellent reporting to let us know Ryan is OK. Such a terrible day for the world of running. Prayers to all who were there. Michelle Watrin

Do you feel an “indefinite deferral” of the YMCA project is a satisfactory position for the city at this time?

My son is safe. Thank you Lord. Judy Rempel Prachnau

Looking upward, into the urban future Andrew

Holota

On Point Abbotsford is growing up. Literally ... vertically. We’re no longer a rural community with plenty of available land upon which to build homes and businesses. With its farming town roots, Abbotsford is now a city, surrounded by protected agricultural land. Aside from portions of Sumas Mountain, and a handful of other relatively small parcels, we’re running out of space. Future development – much of it in the form of redeveloping old neighbourhoods – will be increasingly focused on high density. And the highest density per square metre is achieved via highrise towers. Building up, not out, has been the mantra of local city planning for the past several years. It’s not exactly a new approach in Abbotsford. Several apartment towers

the development footprint doesn’t seem to threaten that green space or the fishbearing creek, and the developer has had to provide a number of studies and commitments to keep it that way. It’s been suggested that the project would be better suited for the historic downtown area. Wait for it. That too will be redeveloped over time, and it won’t be to save the “other” downtown core from highrises. It’s where they belong. It’s understandable that people like their neighbourhoods the way they are – especially if they’ve been around for some time. The concern for green space and the environment is also laudable. Neither can be shrugged off in favour of development. Yet, unlike some small Interior or northern towns that manage to exist with little to no growth, this corner of the province runs on it. Jobs, businesses, sales ... they all hinge on growth. That means more people, and that means higher density. We might not like all the ramifications of that economic equation, but it’s real. Look up ... way up.

Get used to tower projects

I am shocked that our city planners are suggesting to build these giant 26-storey twin towers inside  our  “City in the Country.” Also,  I    am even more troubled that another  26-storey tower has been    approved by our city.  Why does our city give in to these highdensity projects?  Do they want to turn our beautiful city into a downtown Chicago or  Toronto? We have plenty of open acres inside our city limits that could  welcome 100-unit  condos of three or four storeys, thus stop crowding our friendly city. Don’t  forget, we also love those green space gems in Abbotsford. Wally Kroguletz Abbotsford

construction, ensuring that the storm water management plan meets strict requirements. Lastly, there is a two-year follow up already in place to make sure the restoration works are functioning as intended. Why are none of the positives being exploited? The developer has offered to set aside an area for green space; there will be a viewing platform built to enjoy the beauty of the creek; there will be shopping and other conveniences within the development; and most importantly, there will be modern affordable housing that is located in a

very desirable area of the city. So desirable, in fact, there are already three existing high-rises directly adjacent to the proposed development. I have lived in Abbotsford for just over 40 years and have seen many changes. Some have come with opposition and some have been welcomed. With the city’s newest plan of high density living within the city, the citizens of Abbotsford had better get used to welcoming such developments. It just seems more than convenient to be acceptable when it worked for them. John McQuarrie Abbotsford

seems to be absolutely no negative impact to the environment? If you take the time to look at the property in question on Google Earth and compare it to the artist’s illustration in The News dated April 11, it seems that very little (if any) of the existing trees/park will be impacted by this development. If you take a little bit more time, you will see that the developer has satisfied the stringent requirements of both the City of Abbotsford and the Ministry of Fisheries and Oceans. There have been provisions set in place to have on going environmental monitoring during

It boggles my mind that people can come out in numbers to oppose the proposal of two new towers being built on Gladwin Road. There are the common voices: “Don’t trade trees for towers; this area is a green space gem; and, this will destroy the fishbearing creek.” Are these the same people that bought units in adjacent properties with local real estate agents promoting the area as being “close to shopping, Sevenoaks, Mill Lake, restaurants, views of Mt. Baker, surrounding areas and walking trails close by.” Are these the same people that seem to have found it perfectly acceptable to have their own developments surround Horn Creek Park with what

ties that settled in Abbotsford. Sherwood said they also tracked down some of Abbotsford’s former Japanese residents, who were forced out of the area and interned during the Second World War, most of them never returning. The stories also reflect the many communities that make up what is now Abbotsford, such as Matsqui, Sumas, Bradner and Peardonville, which all have their own stories and character. Sherwood said the diversity in the book is important to building an honest and first-hand account of the history of the area. Kies said they hope to preserve these memories for the community, and for the children and grandchildren of the families involved. Dorothy Van der Ree, executive director of the MSA Museum Society, said she was amazed by what she learned in the process of creating the book, and hopes people in Abbotsford will be enriched by reading it. “I think it will bring families and communities together.” Van der Ree acknowledged the book is a compilation of stories – not a definitive history of the area.

They hoped to make an engaging collection of the many aspects of the pioneer experience. Van der Ree said they encountered people who were reluctant to tell their stories, feeling that they were not important enough to merit inclusion in the book. But Van der Ree was quick to reassure them: “If you don’t tell your story, who will?” The 75th anniversary banquet for the MSA Pioneer Association will be held on May 3 at the Rancho on DeLair Road, where the books will be on sale. For tickets to the banquet, which are $25, call Cliff at 604-853-1508 or Rosalie at 604-853-2347. On May 4, members of the pioneer association will be at the Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, selling the book at the community booth from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The MSA Museum will hold a book launch on May 5 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the museum on Ware Street. There will be a reading and signing along with storytelling for children. The book costs $50 with no GST. For more information or to pre-order a book, contact the MSA museum at 604-853-0313 or email msapioneers@gmail.com.


Living donor for her brother

Abbotsford AbbotsfordNews News Thursday, Thursday, April April 18, 18, 2013 2013

Organ donation awareness week runs April 21 to 27 Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

When Katie Powell’s brother Mitch was put on the transplant list for a new liver in 2011, she wanted to find a way to help. He had been suffering from primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) for about five years, an illness that caused scarring on his liver. Without telling her family, Powell – then 23 years old – started going through the tests to find out if she was a match for her brother. She hoped to become a living donor, the liver being the only internal organ that is able to regenerate. When she got the OK from doctors a few months later, she told her family. “None of them really said anything. My dad was in shock. My mom said it was a lot to think about, having two kids on the operating table.” But for Powell, there was nothing to think about. She donated 60 per cent of her liver to her brother in June of 2012. Though the surgery took a physical toll on her body, Powell and her brother are recovering well. She now volunteers with B.C. Transplant to raise awareness about organ donation, and counsels people who are going through the process of a live liver dona-

She said people can check online to see whether they are still registered to donate, by entering their care card number at www.transplant.bc.ca. Powell said she hopes people who would like to donate will register themselves, as the organs from one person can save eight lives. Often, in cases

of unexpected death, families are unsure of whether the deceased wished to donate organs. She said registering as a donor can take unnecessary stress off grieving families. “Don’t put it all on your family… I think it’s so important that you make that decision for yourself.” For more information about organ donations and for those who would like to register, visit transplant.bc.ca.

Heat Foundation focused on helping kids The Abbotsford Heat Foundation is preparing to choose its 2013 grant recipients. The foundation has issued an invitation to all organizations that have programs that fall within the guidelines to apply for a grant. The deadline is May 10. “We granted to about 15 different people last year and have covered a lot of the Fraser Valley, but we’re hoping to catch a few more applications,” explained Judy Sweeting, chair of the foundation. Recipients last year included organizations like Cyrus Centre, Matthew’s House and Abbotsford Restorative Justice. The grants ranged from $2,000 to $5,000. Funds are raised locally by the foundation. “We hold a golf tournament each year and we have six 50/50 nights that we can choose,” said

Sweeting. The 50/50 draws occur during each home game of the Abbotsford Heat hockey squad. The Calgary Flames also donate money to the foundation. Sweeting said any group with a charity number can apply for a grant. “But our pillars are for improving the lives of children under the age of 17.” Helping children in the Fraser Valley is the key objective for the group. The foundation does this by supporting grassroots sport organizations, championing projects that improve health, education and fitness, as well as advocating and supporting programs that repress risk-related behaviour. For more information, email info@abbotsfordheatfoundation. com.

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) launched its “Buckle Your Babies” campaign last Wednesday morning with car seat safety checks along Blueridge Drive. The checks, which ran for two hours near Crestview Avenue, continued for another two hours in the afternoon at another location in the city. A total of 1,000 cars were checked, and 47 tickets were issued throughout the day. Const. Ian MacDonald said checkpoints will be set up at various sites throughout Abbotsford over the next two weeks. Police will be stopping drivers to ensure that any children in the car are safely buckled in, that the appropriate car seat is being used and hasn’t reached its expired date, and

Popular group brings Mythology tour to Abby The thunder is rolling into town once again – Celtic Thunder, that is. The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre has officially announced the popular singing group is returning for another show. The group is on a 62-city North American Mythology tour that stops in Abbotsford on Sept. 7. Tickets are now on sale at the AESC box office, charge by phone at 1-866977-2372, or online at www.abbotsfordcentre.ca. Named To p World Music Artist twice by Billboard magazine, Celtic Thunder’s six male soloists Emmet Cahill, K eith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, George Donaldson, Neil Byrne and Colm Keegan perform both solo and ensemble numbers. They are known for an eclectic mix of songs, ranging from traditional Irish fare to international hits such as The Boys are Back in Town and Sound of Silence, as well as original compositions. Their live shows are recognized for the use of dramatic effects via lighting and choreography, as well as a stage set resembling an ancient stone pathway drawn from Celtic lore. Mythology presents a blend of entertainment, ideology and Gaelic spirituality, providing a modern twist on the old Celtic storytelling tradition. In addition to the six main vocalists, the tour will also feature strings, guitars, percussion, whistles, pipes and more in the

eight-piece Celtic Thunder band. Mythology, released in February

2013, is the seventh Celtic Thunder CD to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s World

City eyes an internal efficiency review

New city manager says option will be more effective than proposed core services study Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

A proposal to review the city’s provision of core services

has been put aside to instead allow the city manager to potentially undertake efficiency reviews

in specific departments. The budget allotted $200,000 to conduct a core services

review, but the city manager has proposed to instead set aside $50,000 if needed to conduct

an efficiency review for a particular service. The idea for a core services re-

view, which would analyze what services should be provided and how, was brought forward in

February 2012 by Coun. Henry Braun, who said he was concerned about the city’s “unsustainable” financial path. He called for staff to look into hiring a consultant to conduct an independent review of city services. In January of 2013, Braun put forward a motion to postpone the city services review, following the resignation of the former city manger Frank Pizutto in December. Braun said he thought it would be important to allow new city manager George Murray to review the issue. Murray was involved with the core services review of the Fraser Valley Regional District and has previously been involved in efficiency reviews. Murray said after spending the last two months reviewing the city’s operations, he is confident a potential efficiency review would be more helpful in analyzing specific services than the broad proposal of a core services review. Braun said he understands that the delivery and effectiveness of services needs to be assessed, but if the city manager can deliver the results for $150,000 less, he supports that idea. Braun said his goal in raising the core services review was to provide fiscal sustainability, and he is convinced Murray agrees with that goal. “He is approaching this a bit differently that I initially thought. But for me, the end product is to provide better and more cost effective services.”

Keep your staff safe at the summer party Legal-Ease

Summer is coming, and with it comes plans for office functions such as golf tournaments, picnics, baseball games, and other events. What should you as an employer do to make sure your next office party is remembered for all the right reasons? You need to understand the concept of the “duty Doug of care” owed to employees. In Canada, the question of whether one party owes a duty of care to another party is based on three criteria. First, is there a sufficiently close relationship between the parties to justify the law imposing a positive duty of care? Second, is potential harm reasonably foreseeable? Third, is imposition of a duty of care supported by public policy? In 1995, the Supreme Court of Canada, in a case called Stewart v. Pettie, confirmed that

commercial hosts, such as restaurateurs or tavern owners, can be found liable for failing to take reasonable steps to prevent foreseeable harm to patrons or third parties. It was found by the court that there is a sufficiently close relationship between business owners and patrons to justify a positive Lester duty of care. In 1996, in a case called Jacobsen v. Nike Canada Ltd., the Supreme Court of British Columbia held: “the law imposes a higher standard of care on an employer than a tavern owner.”. The court further held that “an employer who provides alcohol to its employees” must “monitor consumption … so that it (the employer) is in a position … to take affirmative steps to prevent foreseeable risk of injury.” Thus, in our province, there is a sufficiently close relationship between

an employer and employee at work, or at a work function, to create a positive duty of care. Mr. Jacobson was an employee of Nike Canada who had driven his own car to a work function where the employer provided alcohol. In those circumstances the court found it was reasonably foreseeable that the employee might

drive home intoxicated, and injure himself or others in the process of driving home. Since the Stewart and Jacobson decisions, Canadian courts have sweepingly held that there is a public policy interest in curbing drunk driving, and as such, employers owe a duty of care to employees who consume alcohol at work functions.

We now know that employers owe a duty of care to employees who are consuming alcohol at work, or at work functions, but what is the required standard of care that is owed? In Ontario, it has been held that positive steps must be taken to ensure this duty is properly discharged. A general offer of a free taxi ride home is insufficient, as is an offer

to call a friend or family member. Asking the employee if he or she “feels OK to drive” is also insufficient, because alcohol impairs judgment. If you suspect your employee has become intoxicated at your office function, take the following steps: 1. Offer a safe ride home. 2. Take away the employee’s car keys. 3. Call a taxi for the em-

A23 A23

ployee and take reasonable steps to ensure he or she takes it. 4. Finally, if the employee refuses your assistance and attempts to drive home, call the police.

AbsolutEStyle Fashion Show: Apr 25 Peter Jensen Photography

100 original garments presented by 28 models

With Absolute Style hosting nearly 1,000 people ro marvel at 100 original garments presented by 28 models, the one thing you don’t want to be on April 25, is fashionably late. The last loose ends are being snipped and tied this week as the University of the Fraser Valley’s Fashion Design program puts finishing touches on what’s quickly become the region’s marque fashion event. “It’s an exciting, creative show with a huge, diverse collection of works,” disclosed UFV Fashion Design program head Deanna Devitt.

Fusing active wear with the avantgarde, this year’s collection is as diverse as the talented graduating students themselves. Devitt said several themes arose, from 1940s Gatsby to Russian princess, and safari. “Minimalism was a big trend so we are seeing sculpted clothing in black/white and midnight navy. On the softer side, lingerie styling is coming back with soft pastel colours – a very feminine look.”

Tickets are $10 for the 2:30 p.m. matinee show and $18 for the 7 p.m. show. UFV’s Alumni Association will host a wine and cheese reception at the evening event.

The show would not be a success without the generous support from sponsors, including media

“Every patient presents a unique challenge with one best option, and my challenge is to determine what is best for each person and then provide those services at the highest skill level possible,” says Blaylock. “It’s all about quality of life, and having surgery can be life changing for my patients.” The goal is to provide patients with the “simple things,” like playing golf or watching their children play, and it all begins with the ability to see. “There really is nothing else in medicine where you can so significantly enhance the quality of people’s lives,” says Blaylock.

Rosé Smack Down: Good, juicy fun There is a fun wine-on-wine contest called the Rosé Smack Down, where tasters get to choose the favourite of two rosé wines: Haywire or Bartier Scholefield (B·S). Winemaker Michael Bartier and wine expert David Scholefield have their dukes up (almost literally) to see which wine will come ahead.

NAME> Kylee AGE> 23 STUDYING> English

Anyone can participate in this contest. Get yourself a bottle of each rosé, taste them, and then tell Okanagan Crush Pad which you prefer: http://bit.ly/Z2zjcY.

and Communications

You have until 11:59 PM on Apr. 30, 2013 share your “poetic” findings and be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to visit Okanagan Crush Pad winery and enjoy Summerland.

Q&A

While both wines are 100% Gamay Noir and very food friendly, they are different.

What do you like best about UFV? We have incredible faculty. Small class sizes mean students and teachers get to know each other.

What’s your favourite class so far? Where is the most awesome place on campus? The courtyard in the fall.

What’s your dream job after graduation?

Use three words to describe yourself: Creative, Passionate, Pragmatic.

What tip would you give to a brand new UFV student?

The B·S 2010 rosé (13.4% ABV/$18.99) is the more “grown up” of the two wines. It is refreshing, with a lot of fruit— strawberries and cooked rhubarb—on the palate. I find more of the fruit on the nose, accompanied by floral notes, spice and an earthiness. This wine is great in a glass all by itself or paired with a well-laid-out charcuterie board. While I do like both and would drink either, I chose the Haywire because it has more staying power. A day after initially tasting the wines for the contest, I opened both again to pour and drink. The Haywire was just as lively and fresh as it had been at first opening; sadly, the B·S was a little tired.

Save the Date

Welcome to the main event Pour your pink; enter the tent Swirl, sniff, and sip, then tell the whole town Haywire takes the Rosé Smack Down.

Working in communications for a literary magazine or news radio station.

The Haywire 2010 rosé (13.7% ABV/$21.99) has lots of bright, juicy fruit on the palate: Cherries, cranberries, strawberries. On the nose are more of the fruit and spicy notes. This wine, which is lighter in colour

than the B·S, is fun and perfect as a refreshing patio sipper or alongside your favourite casual food.

In addition, the contestants attended

Challenge update a seminar “How To Catwalk Through Life” as well as one for “How To Dress Your Shape”. Here the ladies learned how to strut and clothe their newly toned figures. Smiling and turning with sass, the ladies showed their inner and outer beauty. Aldila Boutique helped identify each participant’s body shape and gave instruction on which cuts and styles were best suited to each body. Confidence won for best accessory. Yet another community based challenge for the top five contestants (and the wild card) is being held on Saturday, May 11 from 10-2 in both Chilliwack and Abbotsford. It is a “Free the Children” Scavenger hunt. Brittany Clough, Miss Teen Fraser Valley-World has co-ordinated, with the Shape Your World Society, a fund raising activity for the Free the Children Society.

Outdoor

entertaining Few things are better than having a functional and beautiful outdoor space to entertain guests. Establishing an entertaining space and maintaining that space are essential when planning another year of fun in the sun. Here are a few key tips for readying your yard for entertaining possibilities. Check the area for any needed repairs. Prior to your first entertaining session, look over the deck or patio to take note of any flaws that may present safety hazards. Be sure to remedy all of the repairs needed to ensure guests will be safe. If you are unsure of any structural deficits, consult with a contractor. Hire a reputable contractor. If you are just laying the groundwork for a new patio or deck, get the necessary permits and then hire a person who has been properly vetted. Check qualifications and licensing and ask to view a portfolio of his or her previous work. Plan well-defined areas. Just as rooms serve different purposes inside of the home, outdoor areas can be separated

according to usage. Establish a sitting nook where guests can gather and talk. Make sure there is a shaded area for when the sun is too uncomfortable to make sitting outside enjoyable. Don’t forget to establish a spot for the kids to converge with scaled-down amenities. Invest in quality outdoor furniture. Today’s yards are extensions of a home’s interior. Guests no longer want to sit on uncomfortable metal or plastic furniture. There are many different outdoor sofas and chairs that are as stylish as they are comfortable. Accessorize. Don’t shy away from hanging artwork on an exterior wall or using urns or pottery to decorate the space. Weather-resistant materials ensure everything from clocks to televisions can be used outdoors. Think about having an entire set of serving dishes and other entertaining items for the outdoors.

We’re a BUILDING SUPPLY STORE with a CAUSE! • lots of furniture to choose from • only new carpeting • new kitchen cabinet doors • we tear out kitchens for free • lots & lots of cabinet and kitchen pulls • lots of brand new and slightly used doors, assorted sizes • assorted lumber, from 2x4s to much more • ask us about our delivery policy While having almost everything you need for your next project at low and affordable prices, we also accept and re-sell quality new & used building materials and household furniture.

Middle School Students Raise Money " ” for Ethiopia With an iPod Buy-out by Michelle Watrin Envision Financial Run for Water’s Randall Peters has become a popular assembly leader in the Lower Mainland. He has had a school-wide assembly with Colleen and Gordie Howe Middle School staff and students for three years in a row. Through stories of both hope and need in the lives of kids the same age who live halfway around the world he inspired youth to make a difference in the world. “He gets better every year,” grade 8 teacher Craig Hemmrich shares. “The story about the girl who lost her parents to AIDs and had to walk for water for a place to stay brought a tear to my eye.”

rope and getting water from a tap installed in her village. She explains in broken English the pain, both physical and mental, she had gone through for years when she had to walk for water in exchange for a place to live. She now intends to go to school to become a doctor. “Now I have hope. Thank you Run for Water!” she exclaims through a luminous and contagious smile. “We want you to get creative with fundraising. Don’t go door-to-door asking for money…challenge yourself and do something original,” Peters told the attentive crowd. Inspired by the assembly, students began planning fundraising strategies to help more kids in Ethiopia have clean water. An entire afternoon was spent with leadership students presenting a fair full of interesting booths and games for the students to explore, while purchasing tickets in a carnival-like atmosphere.

Foraging for food

Massey, by Chef Jeff 62 restaurant Foraging for food has become a bit of a cultural obsession lately. The trend towards local and sustainable is at its peak when you consider finding your dinner while out for a walk in the woods. As spring is now in the air, there are several plants to watch for if you are scavenging for dinner in the forests. Stinging nettles typically grow in shaded moist ground, often near a spring or stream. Harvest the top set of leaves. Watch for the ‘sting’ on the stem and leaves while picking. Once the leaves are cooked or dried, the sting will disappear. These plants are great in soups and sauces with their herbaceous flavour. If you venture into the drier climate of the interior, wild asparagus will soon be popping up. Look in bright, sunny locations with sandy soil. When harvesting the spears, make sure to leave a few stalks to ‘seed down’ for next year. Once asparagus is cut, the sugar starts to change into starch so eat them as soon as you can.

In our local rainforests, ramps or fiddleheads are more common than asparagus. These are the fresh curls of fern tips coming out of the ground. Both sword ferns and deer ferns are common to our region and are edible. Please note that mature ferns are not edible. Only harvest the young, unfurled ferns. Fiddleheads are recommended to be fully cooked before eating. We are anxiously awaiting the first morel mushrooms of the season here at restaurant 62. These honeycomb looking fungi have a nutty, rich flavour and are a harbinger of spring. They are often found in areas that had forest fires the year before. Morels also need to be fully cooked before consuming so refrain from snacking on your way home! Be sure to be familiar with identifying ‘false morels’ which can be toxic, before venturing out to pick your own mushrooms. Good luck with the food gathering and enjoy the bounty of the forests.

Stinging Nettle Cream 1/2 pound nettles 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp chilies, such as sambal olek 2 tsp garlic, minced 2 tbsp white wine 2 cups heavy cream Salt and pepper to taste Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Blanch the nettles by dropping the leaves into the water for about 30 seconds, and quickly plunging into an ice bath. Strain, and squeeze the leaves dry. In a medium saucepan over low heat, cook out the garlic and chilies in olive oil. Deglaze the pan with white wine, and add the cream. Over medium heat, reduce the cream by half. Add the nettles and cook out for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and purée in a food processor until smooth. This cream makes a delicious base for a pasta sauce, and pairs wonderfully with a light fish such as ling cod or halibut.

When I was first approached by Ken Baerg and Randall Peters about initiating this event, I knew immediately that it was something I wanted for Abbotsford to embrace, knowing the capacity for generosity and empathy held by its residents. Not only did I want to participate, but I wanted by grandchildren to participate, and in so doing, develop an appreciation for what they take for granted each day, and a sense of responsibility for sharing it with those less fortunate.”

Abbotsford Skipping Sensations head coach Deirdre DeGagné offers instruction to Sarah Korstrom during a recent competition. DeGagné will be inducted into the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame at a gala dinner on Saturday, April 27.

DeGagné skips into Hall of Fame

Dan KINVIG

Abbotsford News

It was more than two decades ago that Deirdre DeGagné was exposed to the sport of rope skipping for the first time. Granted, she’d skipped in the playground during her youth, as many kids do. But until a troupe from Burnaby showed up at Simon Fraser University to do a skipping demonstration for teach-

ers in training, she had no idea that a seemingly simple activity could be so gymnastic, so creative, so competitive. That initial interaction ignited a lifelong passion. DeGagné’s elite Abbotsford Skipping Sensations team has produced numerous award-winning athletes, performed at high-profile events including the 2010 Winter Olympics,

seeded Saskatchewan Huskies on the road in the first round of the playoffs, and came within one win of a trip to nationals, ultimately succumbing to the UBC Thunderbirds in the Canada West semis. UFV rewarded Friesen on Tuesday – in a move that had been in the works for weeks, they officially r e moved the interim tag and signed FRIESEN him to a two-year contract. “To coach at the university level in Canada was always the dream,” said Friesen, who graduated from Abbotsford’s Yale Secondary and whose father Al coaches the Yale Lions senior boys team. “To have the opportunity to do it in Abbotsford with my friends and family here, it’s extra special.” Cascades athletic director Rocky Olfert’s decision to keep Friesen rather than solicit outside applications speaks to his confidence that the incumbent is the right man for the job. “Adam showed great leadership, and he’s proven he can coach at this level,” Olfert said. “I’m really happy with the direction Adam has taken the program.”

Skipping Sensations making a worldwide impact

From A39

and sent team members to all corners of the globe sharing their enthusiasm for the sport. And now, the head coach is headed to the Abbotsford Sports

Hall of Fame. DeGagné will be inducted in the community sport builder category during a ceremony at the Legacy Building on Saturday, April 27. Former Canadian national

team rugby star Ryan Banks is the other Class of 2013 inductee. “It’s like when you decide you’re going to build your own house,” DeGagné said with a chuckle, reflecting

on her Hall of Fame nod. “When you’re finished, you think, ‘I’m never going to do that again!’ It’s so much work, but I love it. “I never would have imagined it would turn out like this.

That was not the goal. I never set out to say, ‘We’re going to be one of the top teams.’ It just evolved.” As a young teacher at Abbotsford’s Margaret Stenersen Elementary, DeGagné

built her knowledge of competitive rope skipping thanks to workshops through the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart program. She formed the

Skipping Sensations in 1990, when she moved over to the new Sandy Hill Elementary. “Our very first performance was for the opening of the school,” she reminisced. “We thought we were just absolutely amazing, but now we look at it and say, ‘Woah, that was pretty basic.’ But it was pretty good for a first time.” The Skipping Sensations took a huge step forward three years later when they attended their first competition in Seattle – the event “completely hooked” many of DeGagné’s athletes on the sport. In the years since, multiple Skipping Sensations jumpers have medalled at the world youth competition, and the team has attended the world championships on two occasions. DeGagné has also become one of the key cogs in the sport in North America –  her club has hosted a multitude of championships (eight provincial, three national and three Canada/ U.S. open), along with many local camps to introduce young people to rope skipping. It’s been a special thrill for DeGagné watching her former students coach overseas –  ex-Skipping Sensations have shared their skills in Mexico, Fiji, Chile, Hong Kong, Thailand, Wales and Brazil. DeGagné recalls with great pride the story of Jennifer Murray, who taught rope skipping to children in a Kenyan village while on a medical internship. “They didn’t have any electricity to play music, so all the drummers came out and the whole village showed up for the show,” DeGagné said. “It’s really amazing to spread the sport like that. It’s very gratifying.” DeGagné said she’s “humbled” at her Hall induction, and insists she’d be nowhere without the support of her family, her team members and their families, the City of Abbotsford parks and rec department, and School District 34. “It’s the relationships that (sustains) the longevity,” she explained, noting that she’s now coaching the children of former athletes. “It’s amazing, a real privilege.”

was developed in England and was one of the first crops planted in the New World. Garden peas are one of the most widely grown and most healthy of all garden vegetables. They are rich in nutrients, containing phosphorus, potassium and vitamins A, B and C. Peas are high in carbohydrates, but fortunately, low in calories. One cup of peas has only 45 calories. They also contain nutritious N amounts of fiber, folic acid, W IN ER amino acids and protein. Peas are a cool crop vegetable, and as soon as all danger of heavy frost has 2011 passed, they can be plant-T ed. In Scotland, peas were never sown until the first swallow appeared, while in England, an old ditty advises to “Sow beans and peas on David and Chad (March 1 and 2), be the weather good or bad.” Although many good gardeners plant peas early, you can space the plantings out to enjoy peas right through the summer. Peas prefer a well-drained, shallow, sandy soil that both dries out and warms up quickly. They also like a new location in the garden each year, if possible. Peas do not thrive in acid soil, and an application of Dolomite lime is essential for F

We take many things for granted today, often not fully appreciating the amount of research, hard work or even the fascinating history behind some of our garden food plants. Take the garden pea, for example. Our parents and grandparents planted them, but their history dates back a bit farther – pea seeds were found in an Egyptian tomb at Thebes! Garden peas, or Pisum sativum, are thought to have originated in the area around Pisa, Italy where they grew wild. Brian The Greeks and Romans served boiled peas as a light refreshment during intermissions at their theatre presentations. Peas were a favourite early vegetable among Europeans, and various cultures adapted legends about peas. In Britain, a pod containing nine peas was considered lucky. Peas were also used as one of the many cures for warts. Each wart was supposed to be touched with a pea, that was then wrapped in paper and buried. As the pea decayed in the ground, the wart was supposed to disappear. In the language of flowers, the pea is a symbol of respect, and it’s the birthday flower of February 17. The garden pea we all know and enjoy today,

OBITUARIES

PATTERSON

SPRINGMAN Archie Much to the sadness of his wife, Daryl, and sons, Shane and Blake, we announce the passing of Archie Springman of Abbotsford on April 13, 2013, after a courageous battle with cancer. He will be deeply missed by a large family including his brothers, Dan (David), Surrey, BC and Rueben (Debbie), Abbotsford BC, sisters Carol (Gerald) Reid, Hope, BC, Phyllis (Pat) McInnes, Hope, BC and Joanie (Bruce) Sanderson, Port McNeill, BC. Archie was born at Melfort, SK, on Oct. 22, 1946. He grew up working hard on the family farm and got into all sorts of shenanigans in Nipawin, SK, which was the family’s home for many years. The Springman family moved to Hope, BC, in 1968 where he and his father eventually ventured into business by starting Springman’s Autobody. Archie and his young family relocated to Abbotsford in 1992. He was a devoted family man and a respected community member, participating in the Lions Club, Chamber of Commerce and serving as an auxiliary member of the RCMP. His interest in business led to various partnerships, including a car dealership in Langley with his brothers. His last business venture was Cottonwood RV at Chilliwack. Archie loved camping and was always happy to pack his wife and kids up and to hit the road with a trailer in tow. His favourite spot to camp was at Dry Lake, where many fond memories were made. His passion for collector cars led to frequent revving up the engines, burning a little rubber and enjoying car shows with his sons. He was renowned for his witty sayings (which his family lovingly refers to as “Archieisms”), his master storytelling abilities, his integrity and his rollicking laughter. His keen sense of humour never waned throughout his struggle with cancer. A celebration of Archie’s life will be held on Thursday, April 25th, at 2:00 pm at South Abbotsford Church, 32424 Huntingdon Rd., Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers, donations to BC SPCA or SAINTS Mission gratefully accepted.
