Trad program finds home at Hillside school

Mission ridings draw 11 candidates

BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

School trustees will vote Monday whether Edwin S. Richards and Hillside elementary will become schools of choice, which would see the traditional program housed at the latter. A public meeting was held April 29 at Hillside school to explain the scope and definition of the traditional model. Trustees decided in mid-April to place the program at Hillside, and after staff and the PAC were informed, a parent meeting was held April 25, said board vice-chair Jim Taylor. Chair Edie Heinrichs said according to numbers gathered by Hillside administrative staff, 97 out of about 241 students would remain if a traditional model was instituted throughout the school. But if a shared campus system was put in place — where the traditional program would be run alongside the regular school — 53 would leave, 72 have not responded, and 19 were undecided. The board has committed to a kindergarten to Grade 2 program to start this September, but it is expected that higher grades will be phased in, said Taylor. If this doesn’t pass, trustee Carol Hamilton said it could be “back to square one” for the traditional program. Heinrichs said she has heard from several parents who are angered by what they view as a decision made without consultation. “This is not a school closure,” she said, which would require a longer, formal process. Senior administrative staff can recommend that a program be placed in a school. But parent Leanne Karatsikis said she feels the school wasn’t given a choice. “I may not have a problem with a traditional school, but the discussion should be had. Why was no one asked?” The board will also consider making ESR an artsbased school of choice. This program has been running there for a few years, but a board approval will see boundaries removed, and waiting lists created if there is an abundance of interest. The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. May 6 at Fraserview Elementary School, located at 32444 Seventh Ave.

Residents air concerns at town hall meeting BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

The District of Mission wants to re-route truck traffic on First Avenue and re-designate it as a municipal road. District officials have met with the provincial ministry of highways five times recently, and truck traffic on First Avenue has been an ongoing issue, said Mayor

Ted Adlem at last week’s town hall meeting inside council chambers. “We want them to go on the Murray Street overpass then connect to Highway 7 and 11,” explained Adlem, adding North Railway Avenue would continue to be the provincial highway through town. So far Mission’s biggest success with the ministry is building a

pedestrian walkway to the Junction Mall, which is currently being constructed. About 25 residents attended the meeting to ask council questions and express their concerns regarding district business. Aside from traffic downtown, other topics discussed included the Sturgeon on the Fraser development, the off-leash dog park, and

drainage at the Mission Sports Park. Adlem stated Sturgeons on the Fraser owner Howard Meakin still plans to proceed with the development, but has had difficulty finding financing. “I believe he’s found it now,” said Adlem, who didn’t know when the next steps for the project will be taken. Michelle Roberts, who

recently moved to Mission with her husband, asked why there are no gates at the off leash dog park at the corner of 11 Avenue and Taulbut Street. She explained even the most well-behaved pooch could be distracted and chase after squirrels darting across the road. Director of parks and recreation Maureen Sinclair explained the issue has come up before, and

at the time the park was built, most people said a gate was not required. “We can look at it again,” she offered. Sinclair also stated she would look into properly repairing the baseball diamonds at the Sports Park and produce a report to council. Another newcomer to

Mission, who is a regular cyclist, congratulated the district on the wellmarked bike signs which has helped him navigate through local streets. Town hall meetings are held several times a year to give citizens an opportunity to give council input or raise questions in an informal setting.

There’s a story behind every smile...

Patient Testimonial

Ten years ago, I decided to have a dental implant rather than a bridge. Bridges can be hard to clean and can break down over time. I made an appointment with Dr. Lui and found the implant procedure virtually painless. My dental implant was problem free so, five years later, I had another implant placed by Dr. Lui. I have no discomfort, I can eat anything and the implants are easy to brush - just like normal teeth!

Ultralight pilot strikes debris during water landing BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

An ultralight pilot had a quicker end to his day out than anticipated Sunday afternoon. The pilot suffered no injuries after his aircraft ran into trouble on Silvermere Lake around 1 p.m. April 28. Mission RCMP and fire/rescue service were called out to Lougheed Highway after a white aircraft went into the lake. According to the pilot, who declined to give his name, he was attempting to land, and hit a piece of debris in the water which punctured the float. He told The Record he had been flying since 1962 and that he wasn’t scared after collision. “But it was unusual,” he shared. Mission RCMP Staff Sgt. Rob Dickson said the Surrey pilot was experienced and that Transport Canada was notified but did not attend. Also, said Dickson, a small fuel leak from the plane was reported to the District of Mission for containment.



I have complete confidence in Dr. Lui. His rates are fair and I know he keeps up-to-date with the latest technology and equipment. I highly recommend Dr. Lui to anyone considering having tooth replacement with a dental implant. Dorothy Lee, Retired teacher

Stave Lake area searched for missing PoCo teen The search continues for a missing Tri-City teenager who police believe could be camping out in the wilderness after getting into an argument at his family home last week. Dwight Yochim, a search manager with Coquitlam Search and Rescue, said the types of items that the 16-year-old Dominic De La Giraudais took with him indicate he was preparing for an extended stay in the bush. “He had a book about outdoor survival and a few knick-knacks,� he said. “He has kind of run off before and camped.� A bag with several of the teen’s possessions was found close to the family’s home and searchers believe he may have intended to return and recover the stashed items. He added that there is a possibility De La Giraudais could also be in the Stave Lake area and has been known to travel as far away as Chilliwack by bus. On Monday Mission Search and Rescue deployed in the area to see what they could find. The Coquitlam RCMP said anyone with any information as to De La Giraudais’ whereabouts should contact police immediately. They describe the missing teenager as a black male, 6’2� tall, weighing 180 lbs with short, black hair and a light complexion. He was last seen wearing gray sweat pants, an unknown top and carrying a back pack. Anyone with information is asked to call the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-10935.

OPINION

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

Party system broken

Elections always turn into popularity contests between the good guys and the bad guys when there really is no such thing. Such a situation is inevitable when the point is to convince voters you are better than the other guy. And it must be hard to avoid an adversarial mindset when the runner-up is going to be labelled the Official Opposition and asked to spend the next four years going on about what a terrible job the winner is doing. We can’t be alone in thinking what a horrible waste it all is. And we blame the party system. We want a government that sets balanced policy in response to the needs and desires of British Columbians as a whole. The party system encourages a government that is either a slave to the desires of big business, or pawn in advancing the agenda of the unions. We want MLAs who are fair-minded, broad thinkers, able to see the big picture. The party system gives us choices selected by small groups of dedicated idealogues and backed by coalitions of special interests. We want a legislature full of respectful people dedicated to working together for betterment of the province. The party system gives us a room full of mocking voices built for sabotage and ready to pounce and devour at the slightest misstep. Political scientists could quickly supply a tonne of reasons why any attempt to ban political parties won’t work. We say it’s already not working. The rising amount of disaffected voters is all the proof we need. We need to elect independent people to work on behalf of their province and community, not special interests and ideologies. Ban political parties and let the co-operation begin. - Campbell River Mirror

NDP plan is borrow and spend Fourth in a series on party platforms. DP leader Adrian Dix has finally rolled out his “fully costed” election platform. Major policy announcements had been released previously, but there was plenty more spending added to the total. The NDP’s health care plan is surprisingly modest – more money for home support, residential senior care, mental health and addiction services and a rural acute care initiative totaling $159 million over three years. As health critic Mike Farnworth points out, the residential care increase will allow seniors two baths a week instead of one. Full marks to the NDP for this part of the platform. Increases to Community Living B.C., children and families programs and aboriginal friendship centres are also commendable. Other NDP proposals don’t inspire as much confidence. Raise welfare rates $20 a month and index them to inflation. Index the minimum wage to inflation too, at a time when inflation can only rise.

Fletcher

uestion of the Week:

Do you find value in council’s town hall meetings?

The BC Liberals point to an impressive string of “net zero” wage settlements with public sector unions, the core of their spending control record. Would the NDP continue to hold the line on public service wages, as the BC Liberals have done? Dix’s NDP caucus and staff is stocked with former government union officials. Party president Moe Sihota is essentially a direct employee of the same unions. The B.C. Federation of Labour has shaped the NDP’s Labour Code changes, which we won’t see until after the May 14 vote. And how much money does the “fully costed” NDP plan set aside to pay wage increases for its government union brothers and sisters? Zero. Since this is the party that appears to be cruising to victory in the May 14 election, I’ll look at what’s not in their platform and other issues next week. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

YOUR VIEWS

Mission residents are a friendly lot Editor, The Record: Re: Missionites need to smile more often, April 25 edition. I don’t know where you’re going but, everyone my wife and I are meeting here is wonderful and smiling! We sold our house in East Van-

couver for way more than we would have paid for it and settled here in beautiful Mission just over a year ago. My wife was born and raised in Vancouver, and I was a 30-year resident. Without a doubt this is the most friendly place we’ve been.

Conversations can be struck up anywhere here and they are welcome! Consider yourself happy to be living here, when in Vancouver they cross the street so that they don’t have to make eye contact. Louis Brunel Mission

Properly tended baskets don’t require daily watering Editor, The Record: Re: Council votes to pay for baskets, April 25 edition. How generous of council to agree to pick up the $8,000 tab to water the hanging baskets downtown this summer. It is so easy to use other people’s money, which will come out of the district’s stabilization reserve. The 30-minute council debate totally avoided the fact that it is irrelevant as to which piggy bank reserve

is raided, as all monies are public tax dollars. Surely this is an opportunity for charitable bodies to gain some much-needed funds, as at a rate of $10 per basket per week and with no possession of a degree in horticulture being required, this would be attractive to many deserving causes, whilst performing a public service. If watered properly the baskets need not be attended every day. Jeanette Smith Mission

parking lot. Youth ages 12-18 can attend and take part in a number of free events, such as art workshops and skateboard, scooter and bike competitions. There will also be a climbing wall, live youth entertainment and a MuchMusic video dance party at 5:30 p.m. to wrap up the event. “The event speaks volumes to how our community cares about youth,” said Melissa Kendzierski, program coordinator at the Leisure Centre, adding more than 20 organizations and businesses have from together to make this event happen. The district is partnering with the Mission Arts Council (MAC) to host the event. The second main event showcasing youth talent takes place May 7 at the Clarke Theatre. This is a MAC event celebrating youth ages 13-25 in music, dance, wearable art, visual art, spoken art and poetry, said Nancy Arcand, MAC executive director. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for supporters to view the art in the foyer and the onstage performances begin at 7 p.m. A variety of performers have been scheduled, including Alex Rake and the Leaves, Brittany Grant in dance, Saphira in rap, Tony Loyer and Dara Buker in monologues and Matthew Gonzales, a UFV fashion designer, in wearable art. There is a lot of talent in this group of youth, but there isn’t an event that focuses on them, said Arcand on why this event was put together. “This is a place they can shine and show off,” she added, noting MAC’s Mission Youth Arts Council (MYAC) is behind it all. MYAC was created two years ago to bring more attention to young artists, and this is an event to showcase the organization. Anyone attending the May 7 event can also enter to win a 16GB iPod. Admission is free. For more information about the Youth Arts Festival, visit myac. missionartscouncil.ca.

Empower local gov’t: Flavelle BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

The BC Green Party candidate for Abbotsford-Mission isn’t what most would expect someone from that organization to be like. Aird Flavelle calls himself a conservative. “I’ve always voted conservative,� said the Abbotsford resident. But after he retweeted a post from the Green Party on the popular social media channel, Twitter, he eventually found himself having a face-to-face meeting with party leader Jane Sterk. “She asked me to take a look at the core principles� of the party, and I thought they made sense, he shared. The party believes in participatory democracy, sustainability, social justice, respect for diversity, ecological wisdom and non-violence. There are a number of matters of concern for the long-time business owner. Flavelle said the prospect of a garbage incinerator being constructed somewhere in the region and its output’s affect on the environment scared him, but several other issues have prompted him to run for office. “I hate clear-cut logging with a passion. I don’t believe we’re doing it correctly,� he said of current forest practices, adding that the province should not be shipping raw logs offshore. Flavelle has run unsuccessfully in the last two Abbotsford municipal elections, and says local governments need more support. “We must empower [municipal governments] because that’s where the people are,� he said. More responsibility should be shifted to the local level, but the appropriate amount of funding should follow. Flavelle has been a member of Abbotsford Rotary for several years, and also volunteers with the local hospice society, restorative justice, Follow us on

Twitter

and Abbotsford’s environmental advisory committee. He attended the University of Calgary where he studied Chinese and economics. When he arrived in Abbotsford, he started a newsletter which he produced for two years before being hired by a

computer retailer. Flavelle eventually opened his own business, MSA Computers, 21 years ago. For more information, Flavelle can be contacted at 604-855-4221, via e-mail at aird.flavelle@ greenparty.bc.ca, and through Facebook and Twitter.

Yes, as a matter of fact, we design, build, and install in-ground spas. (And pools too!) Without question, they are far more elegant and blend beautifully into an overall “Backyard Oasisâ€? landscape design. MASTERPIECE POOL & SPA is the exclusive dealer for a fabulous line of inground and in-deck spas from SAN JUAN POOLS. (WE also handle their full line of one piece in-ground fiberglass pools, but that’s another column!) Often the process starts with the customer bringing me their landscaping plans, either drawn up on their own, or by a landscape designer. Or they will even come in with pictures of the kind of effect they want to achieve. Then, we have a look at the SAN JUAN spa lineup, and choose a model that best suits their needs. We then get to work, ordering their spa from the factory, outfitting it with the features that they want, and installing it in conjunction with the owners or their landscape contractor.

12 The Mission Record Thursday, May 2, 2013

Candidates respond to questionnaire Wendy Bales

Roman Bojczuk

Aird Flavelle

Simon Gibson

Marcus Halliday

Preet Rai

MH: Nurses and doctors cannot be forced to work 12-hour shifts, as it increases their chance of getting tired and making a mistake. We need to retrain/replace doctors who continually make “errors,” resulting in many a return visit for the same surgery, contributing to hospital overcrowding and cost. We need to stop the theft of medical supplies. The administration of hospitals needs streamlining to allow the hiring of more support staff. In a similar method to officer training in the military, specialized education grants should be provided to students, who afterward work for the government for five years at reduced pay.

The Mission Record put out a questionnaire to each candidate running in Mission’s two ridings. This week we’ll feature the responses from Abbotsford-Mission. The answers are below: 1. How should gravel removal be managed in B.C.? Wendy Bales Independent I would want to amend the B.C. Mines Act. The act doesn’t reflect protection for communities and all that depend on our watersheds like habitat for wildlife and tourism. The act prevails over and has exemptions in the Water Act and does not address cumulative impacts to our watersheds and aquifers. There are gravel mines at the base of Norrish Creek and an even larger mining zone proposed through the Aggregate Pilot Project (APP) that I believe could impact the source of our water. I believe we have enough gravel already permitted for our needs from all sources for over 100 years unless there are plans to ship it away. Roman Bojczuk Independent No new permits should be issued in close proximity to residences or active farms. Anyone close enough to the pit who might be genuinely affected by dust or noise pollution, should be asked to vote on the issuance of a specific permit. The vote can be taken by telephone or Internet, but each affected person must be contacted. As in any democracy, a simple majority carries the vote. Aird Flavelle BC Green Party Gravel extraction from the Fraser River interferes with and disturbs a complex ecosystem. The gravel reach has evolved over thousands of years providing a rich riparian habitat. Some argue that gravel mining would mitigate flood risk, and throw the public safety card into this debate. There is, however, no evidence that gravel mining has anything to do with reducing flood risk. A new plan for river management is needed. The plan must preserve the ecology of the river; protect people and property from flooding, and makes good economic sense. The Green Party provides the best guarantee of balancing all of these issues. Simon Gibson BC Liberal Gravel is a crucial component to our province. It is used to build and maintain our infrastructure and it is vital to our construction industry. Gravel permits are issued only when all of the technical, health, environmental and safety standards are

Don Stahl

Gravel removal from the Fraser River and mining are contentious issues in the riding.

satisfied. Local governments participate in the process — they can regulate activities through bylaws, such as those for zoning, traffic of soil removal. If elected, I will listen carefully to all perspectives about gravel removal and will work closely with our local representatives, industry and community and ensure our voice is heard in Victoria. Marcus Halliday BC Excalibur Party As with any project, the government should ensure that they are fully informed before making any decision. The real question is, does the gravel create a risk of flood? In sensitive fish spawning grounds, can this risk be neutralized by building the embankment, or widening the river? You can’t eat gravel. The government needs to develop a comprehensive gravel control plan, one that creates a balance between risk of flood, and the danger that gravel removal poses to fish habitats. Gravel is also necessary as it provides a natural filtering method for our water. Preet Rai BC NDP In many ways the gravel issue is a microcosm of the many issues facing our province. I believe there must be a balance between economic growth, environmental concerns and the impact on neighbourhoods. Consultation is needed between the concerned groups, the civic leaders and the province. A comprehensive gravel management plan with public input must be created.

Don Stahl BC Conservative I would put a moratorium on the removal of gravel from the Fraser River — which is occurring mainly in the Chilliwack area. I would do this because a lot of the locations where this gravel has been removed is prime sturgeon and salmon spawning area. Sturgeon and salmon are a national heritage; their spawning area should be protected. I would require for further input from local fish and game clubs and government fishery biologists before any gravel was allowed to be removed from the Fraser or the Harrison River. 2. What changes in health care need to be made to ensure long term sustainability? WB: Federal health care funding has been cut over the years while populations are growing. Formulas for funding should be based in large part on per capita especially with growing populations, with extra funds for regional specialties. Before the Fraser Health Authority took over Mission’s hospital it was one of the two best accredited hospitals in B.C. and well in the black for funds as well as being a full-service hospital. FHA has some very costly administration that I would want to look into, plus do a comparative assessment on whether health authorities have been the best value for our dollar. RB: You cannot buy health. Health is superior to heath care. We

RECORD FILE PHOTO

are told that our current health care system is not sustainable. Obviously, we must concentrate on improving the lifelong health of our citizens. Prevention is the only logical way forward. AF: Healthcare costs go up every year. Soon health care spending will be a full 50 per cent of the provincial budget. Many folks have no family doctor. Many live with pain and a declining medical condition as they wait on referrals for assessment, specialist appointments and operating room time. Our health care system could be the biggest issue facing any provincial government, and nobody talks about it. We need to be open to considering different ways of paying for services, and accept a private sector role in the delivery of some services. SG: In order to preserve our health care system, the most important thing we can do is treat people sooner. We know that the earlier an ailment is caught and treated, the better the outcome for the patient, and the cheaper the cost to the system. Part of this strategy means finding ways to keep people healthier — which is why our government dramatically increased spending on health promotion. Another key piece is our $132.4-million “A GP For Me” program, which aims to ensure that all citizens who want a family doctor are able to access one by 2015.

PR: British Columbians are rightly proud of our health care system, but we can’t be complacent if we want to preserve and improve health care for future generations. I am hearing about the challenges of long lineups, access to doctors, and elder care. Residents have told me they are upset with the state of Mission Memorial Hospital — especially over the loss of their maternity ward and some medical specialists. The NDP will commit $70 million over three years to enable more seniors and people with chronic disabilities and complex conditions to receive home support and community care, and to boost the amount of care. DS: The Fraser Health Authority only gets $1,585 per person every year, while Coastal Health gets $3,008 per person every year. I think we need to relook at the health funding formula to ensure people living in Abbotsford and Mission are treated equally and getting the health care that they are entitled to. B.C. also has fewer nurses per capita than any other province in the country and I am committed to training, hiring and retaining more nurses in B.C. I would also scrap the BC Liberal Pacific Carbon Trust which, in 2011, took $300,000 away from Abbotsford’s hospital and schools. 3. How would you improve education for BC students? WB: I would want to bring the funds for programs back to where all schools would facilitate what is known as traditional school standards that can enhance learning skills. They were available while my son was in his early years but have since been eroding. Limit class sizes. Provide more affordable extended education that includes a more opportunities for new technologies training that we are lagging

Views shared on how to grow B.C.’s economy SG: Creating jobs is the best thing we can do to protect and secure a brighter future for B.C. families. Our BC Jobs Plan has three goals: work with employers, communities and post-secondary institutions to enable job creation across B.C., expand the markets for B.C.’s goods and services, and strengthen our infrastructure to get goods to market. Succeeding requires a commitment to fiscal discipline and skills training. Keeping public debt down is the key to making B.C. the economic engine of Canada, a place that countries around the world want to invest in and do business with.

behind other countries in. I would look at funding through resources, but also cut wasteful spending like the huge amounts of increased government pre election advertising among other things. RB: Teachers must be allowed to teach. In order for teachers to teach effectively, they must be protected and supported from any and all issues which distract them from teaching. For example, unruly students, aggressive parents and excessive paperwork. AF: Our system does not meet the needs of individual learners and does not prepare kids for the job realities they will face. Conventional teaching styles are in conflict with different learning styles. If you are semantic (bookish) learner who wants a job in the old economy, you are in luck. If you learn differently, or if you aspire to work in the trades, or the arts, then you are probably out of luck. We need to get with it and provide an education system that not only meets students’ needs, but better prepares an economic and social future for all of B.C. SG: Today’s BC Liberals will improve B.C.’s education system by keeping politics out of the classroom. Kids benefit when learning is not repeatedly disrupted by our inability to reach a negotiated deal. This is why we are proposing an innovative framework with new ideas on how we can achieve a 10-year agreement with teachers. We also know that many teachers enrich school communities by investing time and money into extracurricular sports and arts activities. Today’s BC Liberals will provide a new tax credit so teachers can claim up to $500, recognizing the extra time and effort they put into helping students. MH: Encourage other students to join peer tutoring. Smaller classrooms and teacher’s aides, allowing teachers one-on-one time with their students. Education needs to be streamlined, offering students education in fields that they will actually use. Parents need time, so that they can teach their kids important basics

MH: I plan to bring the film industry back to B.C., connect the province through transit and rail, keep British Columbia beautiful, and grow small business. I plan to expand on our tourism opportunities by providing better connections and accessibility, while offering unique small business.

such as personal planning, instead of the current generic planning courses schools offer. Our school system is trying to replace the role parents have in bringing up their children, and as we can see from the widespread drug use and other problems our students encounter, it is not working. PR: As a father of three and as a school trustee I know a strong education system is the key to future economic growth. While I am confident that schools are doing the best they can for our children, the erosion of the educational system in the past decade has resulted in overcrowded classrooms, too few resources and cuts to special needs programs. BC NDP leader Adrian Dix announced a commitment to a longterm investment of $100 million to skills training and to student grants to increase the affordability and accessibility of post secondary so our children have the skills for the future. DS: I support a series of education reforms aimed at stabilizing funding and increasing parental input in the education system. The BC Conservatives’ policy document

states: “The issues of the classroom should not be addressed on a province-wide scale between the provincial government and teachers, and must be delinked from the legitimate wage and benefit concerns of teachers. Classroom issues should be dealt with at the local level and involve parent advisory committees and local teachers’ associations. A BC Conservative government will also keep education funding stable over the next four years, which will allow for consistent multi-year planning by school boards.” 4. What are your ideas to grow BC’s economy? WB: Invest in renewable energy and industries that don’t destroy so much of our most valuable potable water. Other countries are making great growth strides in new technologies that B.C. needs to do better in. We need to plan for sustainable economies which should include protecting local jobs in Free Trade deals as well as processing resources closer to source. We could also have a real economic boom if we had more low interest loan incentives, to build and rebuild for better energy conservation standards.

RB: We need to encourage free enterprise and individual initiative. Governments over the years have proven themselves incapable of creating and maintaining meaningful sustained employment. Governments must insure that timely, effective training is available, when and where necessary, to match people to the employment needs. AF: Our economy must continue to change from an industrial economy to a knowledge-based economy, and one less dependent on fossil fuels. The Green Plan creates jobs that are more sustainable, and better for communities. We plan for jobs in creating alternatives to fossil fuel energy; housing and construction; local, sustainable and organic food production; ecological management and infrastructure; infrastructure; education, arts and knowledge. We want to grow our economy with a broad based approach. Smart government; fair taxes; investments in advanced technology and education; investment in important social issues within a context of environmental sustainability – all will strengthen communities and economic futures.

PR: We must encourage our residents to spend more money in our local economy. The NDP’s Feed BC program will put healthy, locally grown food on the plates of patients in BC hospitals and long-term facilities to improve diets and health outcomes. We must encourage small business, address the issue of cross border shopping, and create local jobs through skills and apprenticeship training (and assist them if finding work). Our plan starts by showing how we will pay for our promises, providing the certainty our economy needs. There will be no job-killing HST-like surprises after the election. DS: I support the sustainable development of our natural resources. To ensure the viability of our farmers, I would continue supporting the supply management system for our local dairy and chicken farmers. B.C. is the only jurisdiction in North America that has a carbon tax. I believe that by phasing out the BC Liberal carbon tax — which is a tax on everything — over the next four years, that this will make B.C. a more business friendly province. Getting rid of the carbon tax not only will keep more money in the pockets of families, but will help farmers lower their operating expenses. • Read next week’s Mission Record for Questions and Answers for the Maple-Ridge Mission riding.

Second-term FVRD director seeks MLA seat The Mission Record will be interviewing each candidate who is running in the upcoming election. For more details, visit missioncityrecord.com/ election.

BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

A current director on the Fraser Valley Regional District board wants to represent Abbotsford-Mission in Victoria as an indepedent.

W e n d y Bales, who unsuccessfully ran for the NDP nomination in this riding, said she continued Bales to try for a seat after she believed there wasn’t “anyone I wanted to vote for this time around.” This is due to where the majority of her political competitors stand on big is-

sues, she said. Bales, who lives in Deroche, is concerned about the state of the health care system in the province, and says that for the past decade, while there have been improvements, it’s “still not as good as it was before.” Mission Memorial Hospital used to be a full-service facility, but it’s been heading “downhill ever since Fraser Health Authority took over. There’s been a lot of top-

heavy administration.” Also topping Bales’ list of worries, is the Aggregate Pilot Project (APP), which lists sites where gravel mines should be located. She believes increased gravel mining will affect tourism and wildlife habitats, and that if some proposed pits are placed near drinking water sources, their viability could be undermined. Bales is now in her second term as area C direc-

tor, and says the work has provided a good education that would prepare her for being an MLA. She has sat on two provincial committees through her FVRD work that addressed issues such as the APP, agriculture and livestock, the Water Act and forestry. Bales also notes that several other countries are far ahead of Canada in terms of renewable energy, and more moeny needs to be targeted

towards training so that the nation can keep pace globally. The self-employed landscaper has lived in Deroche for 24 years, and the riding for the past 38. She can be reached at wendybales.com.

The second independent candidate running in the AbbotsfordMission riding says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motivated because of the antiquated way politics is conducted in Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a horse and buggy political system in the space age,â&#x20AC;? said Roman Bojczuk.

THE DOOR IS OPEN How many of us live in prisons of our own making? If you feel constrained by the circumstances of your life and yet those circumstances are largely your own creations, then you have indeed built yourself a prison. Henry David Thoreau writes about those who have â&#x20AC;&#x153;forged their own golden or silver fetters,â&#x20AC;? accumulating wealth and property to the point where they are literally enslaved to it. He reminds us that â&#x20AC;&#x153;A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.â&#x20AC;? And a man is free in the same proportion. The ultimate freedom is to have the liberty of mind and spirit to do as one would choose, free of duress or external control. Most adults live life free of external control, and yet we feel constrained by the circumstances of our lives. We must toil and work like slaves because we have allowed materialism to become our master. We are slaves to our appetites and desires because we have allowed hedonism to become our master. And we are imprisoned by our own minds because we fail to see that there are other ways to think and live. The Sufi poet Rumi asks â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?â&#x20AC;? The answer can only be that it is a prison of our own choosing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.â&#x20AC;? Galatians 5:1

The predominant problem, he said, is that politicians generally must tow the party line, and if someone speaks up, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x153;kicked out.â&#x20AC;? Bojczuk advocates for free votes on all subjects in the legislature and states in his campaign literature that political parties divide people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is to represent the community with honesty and integrity. I believe that the role of government in a democracy is to be of the people, by the people, for the people, not of the corporations, for the corporations, by the corporations. End corporate domination of the political system.â&#x20AC;? Free speech doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t currently exist in government, Bojczuk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our democracy is a sham and people are not amused.â&#x20AC;? This lack of trust in politicians sees more people choosing to abstain from voting, he continued. Bojczuk says if elected he would go to Victoria with his constituentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; true concerns, â&#x20AC;&#x153;not what I perceiveâ&#x20AC;? them to be. The third-degree black belt in Isshin-Ryu karate has lived in Mission since he was 10 months old, and ran unsuccessfully in the last municipal election. Married 38 years with eight children and 14 grandchildren, Bojczuk spent his professional life working for the Canadian Pacific Railway. When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not spending time with family and friends, he has a passion for organizing family and school reunions. Bojczuk also grows Christmas and fruit trees in Mission, and has been a lifelong student of history and politics. Bojczuk can be contacted at roman.b@ telus.net or by phone at 604-826-1163.

Halliday runs for BC Excalibur Party BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

A new political party has launched, and one of its candidates is seeking a seat in Abbotsford-Mission. Marcus Halliday, whose father started the BC Excalibur Party, is an 18-year-old Abbotsford resident who says the party stands for truth, honour and justice. “We need a government that cares about the people, not the golden handshake,” he said. Halliday says he’s always been interested in politics, and has aspirations to run in the next municipal election. Halliday hopes that his running for office will inspire local youth and motivate them to try to succeed, beginning at a young age. The former Air Cadet flight sergeant and in-

structor has sat on the joint Mission-Abbotsford Transit Committee, and has volunteered with several community organizations such as the Abbotsford International Airshow, Abbotsford Swap Meet, Salvation Army, Life Second Chance and the Royal Canadian Legion. Regarding transit, he wants to see the West Coast Express expanded to Abbotsford, and eventually to Chilliwack. Taking the line across the river would also create tourism opportunities by enticing U.S. visitors to board the train and come to places like Mission where they could find unique items and shops in the downtown. Halliday would like to see Abbotsford-Mission become a smallbusiness hub, and would work with local

councils to develop investment plans for entrepreneurs. The Abbotsford Walmart manager would also endeavour to create bi-monthly community meetings where residents can bring issues forward to him, and he could share what is happening in Victoria and in the riding.

Stars of the stage, screen and the music scene appeared at the Hollywood Nights Gala of Mission Hospice Society (MHS), held April 20 at the Best Western. Marilyn Munroe (aka Sarah Copeland) was joined by Charlie Chaplin (alias Patrick Hamilton) winning the awards for the best star likeness. Also in the running were Meryl Streep (Vicki Gould) known for her role in The Devil Wears Prada, country singer Kenny Hess (Bob Reed), Audrey Hepburn (aka Rochelle MacPherson) and more. There were appearances by Olivia Newton-John, Jackie Chan, Indiana Jones, Jack Nicholson, Katy Perry, James Bond and even one major film director. Cora, Countess of Grantham from Downtown Abbey (Dianne Smart) also graced us with her presence along with her husband, the Earl of Grantham. In control of the evening’s proceedings was George Clooney (Cliff Prang). Momentary Lapz provided the music and the stars showed us some great moves on the dance floor. Check out photos from the evening at missionhospice.bc.ca. Awards were presented to our many sponsors including The Mission Record, our Gold Media Sponsor. Hospice society executive director Jane Cooper announced at the event that the organization will be moving to new premises in June. Staunch supporters, the Rock family, have purchased a house close to Mission Memorial Hospital and have agreed to lease it to MHS. Beeru Mannan of Rockwell’s Catering, with the help of his chef, Chris Schufelt and team produced a meal worthy of the event. Alongside the dessert buffet was a Hollywood-themed cake made by Say It With Cakes from Abbotsford. The gala is an annual event which raises money for the hospice society.

ome spring, shoppers often ask, “What gift should I get Mom for Mother’s Day?” How do people transform the sentiments they have for their mother into gifts that represent love and devotion? Buying a Mother’s Day gift is no easy task, especially for those who wait until the last minute to do their shopping. Beginning early can ease the pressure of Mother’s Day shopping. Research gift options at least a month prior so that you can read reviews on products and services to guarantee quality. You also want to make sure the gift will arrive on time if you will be ordering your gift online. Here are other ways to shop in a smart manner. • Do some sleuthing. Play detective and take inventory of what Mom likes to do the most. If

Learn what your Mom loves to help guide your gift-buying decision. METRO

you ask your mother what she wants, she will likely brush off the question and tell you nothing. It is up to you to do the investigative work. Pay attention to conversations and see if there is anything she mentions wanting to try or something around the house that may need updating. Practical gifts are less likely to end up unopened in the base-

ment or attic. • Check expiration dates. Gift certificates and cards for particular stores or services are popular come Mother’s Day. But it is essential to check expiration dates on the certificates or find gifts, as there is a good chance Mom will put off pampering herself and you would not want the gift to expire before she has a chance to use it. In compliance with the law, chain restaurant gift cards don’t expire for at least five years from purchase. Those might be your safest bet. • Verify a business. Although Mom may love a cute boutique that just opened, verify the business before buying a gift card from it. An unpredictable economy has made it even harder for new businesses to succeed, and

you don’t Mom to be stuck with a worthless gift card should the new business not thrive. If she really likes a particular new business, take her on a shopping spree at the store instead. • Skip the chocolate overload. Flowers and chocolates are traditional Mother’s Day gifts. However, calorieconscious women may not want to be faced with the temptation of a warehouse-sized box of chocolate treats. If Mom truly loves chocolate, treat her to a gourmet piece or two, but don’t make that your main gift. • Avoid final sale items. It can be tempting to peruse the deepdiscount rack at Mom’s favourite store when retailers cut prices on items in anticipation of a new season. However, these sales may come with restrictions on returns or exchanges.

Celebrate Mom

SUNDAY, MAY 12th

Tell special women they are appreciated as well

Mother’s Day

SpaSpecials

E

very spring individuals celebrate their mothers on Mother’s Day. It has evolved from a day to honour mothers to one that recognizes all special women. Therefore, if there is a woman in one’s life who isn’t a biological mother — but special nonetheless — Mother’s Day can be a time to tell her how much she is appreciated. There are many reasons a person may want to honour a woman that is not his or her mother. Perhaps the person’s own mother has passed away or is not prominent in this individual’s life. Maybe there is a grandmother or aunt with whom one is especially close. There may be a teacher or mentor that has touched the life of a person in a special way. Although Mother’s Day is built around giving thanks to Mom, it’s certainly acceptable to thank women in addition to dear old Mom. Furthermore, one needn’t wait until a specific day in May to honour a notable woman. This can be done all year long with certain gestures and sentiments. For those who are celebrating all women on Mother’s Day, here are some ways to set the day apart. • Create a handmade card with personalized sentiments that reflect the unique relationship with this special woman. This can mean more than a prepurchased card that may not offer the right words. • Find out her interests and spend a day doing entirely what she wants to do. It doesn’t necessarily have to take place on Mother’s Day. A trip to a museum or a day at the park — whatever it may be — can be a nice outing. • Treat her to a special dinner. Ask about favourite foods and create a meal at home. If dining out is a must, choose a day other than Mother’s Day to avoid the crowds and have intimate moments with just the two of you, especially if you are

also honouring your own mother on Mother’s Day. • Find something you both enjoy and then go and do that. Maybe you met up due to a hobby or interest. Remember the first day you met and reminisce by heading to

that place for a celebration. • Have an extended family fiesta. Host a Mother’s Day party at home and single out all the special women in attendance. Serve cocktails and enjoy the time spent

together. Mother’s Day is a special time of the year to honour not only a person’s mom but also any other notable woman in his or her life. The holiday can be customized any way a person sees fit.

Compost giveway successful On Saturday, April 20, the District held its second annual Rot Pot compost giveaway event at the Mission Landfill, drawing a crowd of 358 residents, more than doubling last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. Thank you again, Mission residents, for making good use of your Rot Pots and diverting your food and yard waste, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and saving landfill space and taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money. Rot Pot compost is weed and pathogen free, contains no additives, improves soil health and plant disease resistance and adds nutrients and beneficial soil microorganisms to any garden. Mixed into existing flower and vegetable beds, it acts as a soil conditioner and slow-release fertilizer. Spread thinly on lawn areas, it can improve growth and moisture retention, reducing the need for watering in dry spells. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve missed the event, or would like to purchase additional Rot Pot compost, it is available in quantities ranging from a pail to several truck loads at Global Landscaping Supplies (globallandscapingsupplies.webs.com; 604852-8905), centrally located at 7085 Bridge St. Larger quantities (upwards of 15 cubic yards) of Rot Pot compost can be purchased directly from the processor. Please phone Dacon at 604-826-7379 for additional information. Please contact either supplier directly for pricing and pickup/delivery options. For more information, visit the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste management pages at www. mission.ca, call the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering department at 604-820-3736 or send an e-mail to engineering@mission.ca. inations EYMOON dest N O H & S G IN We do WEDD est. 2006

Mountain bike race series now underway The Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association (FVMBA) kicked off the 2013 Trailblazer Series in Fraser River Heritage Park, Mission

April 27. Named after sponsor Mission Springs Trailblazer Pilsner, the series features the crosscountry race at Heritage

Park and three enduro races throughout the valley. While the series is aimed to bring together everyday riders from across the Fraser Valley,

many participants came from Vancouver or even farther to sample some of the amazing trails the Fraser Valley has to offer. The trails at Heritage

nettles and brush, and ensuring that the trails are in excellent shape, not only for mountain bikers but for all the users of the park.” Even the youngest got out and did some riding, with a kids race for ages 12 and under. Race director Karla Stowards said, “I was especially excited to see a number of first time racers in our beginner and under 15 categories. That is exactly what the FVMBA is hoping to do — create a great experience for all levels of rider from first timers to seasoned professionals.” With lots of prizes donated from sponsors such as Wentings Bike Shop, Pinkbike, Answer, and Kintec, free coffee provided by Clearbrook Coffee, and a delicious lunch from Suburban Spoon, participants were sure to go home happy. The next three races will be enduro style; which is an event that mimics a group ride. The enduro race is the hottest new trend in mountain biking, said the FVMBA, blending traditional disciplines of cross-country and downhill, and favouring bikes which are able to do a little of both. Participants ride up to the trailhead at the top of the hill or mountain, and the clock begins at or near the top, and riders pin it down the trails. Enduros may feature one long downhill segment, or several shorter timed segments. The next race is scheduled for June 2 at Vedder Mountain. Visit FVMBA.com for details.

Selects in Coastal Cup this weekend Seven Mission soccer players will be heading to Richmond this weekend for the B.C. Coastal Cup, playing on the West Coast Selects team. Coach Jason Symons said the team has been undefeated in 14 games, and has already clinched a spot in the provincials which will take place in Langley in July. Missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Philip Mayfield, Ethan Symons, Ryan Harvey, Brett Selbie, Kyle Clifford, Connor Haig and Bryce MacKenzie are members of the 15-player U13 A Cup team that has been outworking their competition all season long. The players all have a strong work ethic, which they use to wear teams down through a combination of good defense and scoring ability, said Symons. This elite level of competition comprises players from the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland. For more information visit bccoastalcup.com

OBITUARIES

ERICKSON, Walter Dwayne Dec 28, 1937 - April 22, 2013 Dwayne passed away in Calgary, Alberta on April 22, 2013 at the age of 75. He was predeceased by his mother and father, Frank William Erickson (Legion Motors Ltd.) and Lela Lorraine Hester and by his sister Elaine. Born in Chilliwack B.C., he grew up in Mission City, B.C. While in school, he started his journalism career at the Fraser Valley Record before going to the University of British Columbia, followed by career stops in Penticton, Prince George, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Calgary. The Edmonton Journal hired him in September of 1957 and the following spring he was assigned to cover his first professional Rodeo. Dwayne was immediately attracted to the cowboy lifestyle; Rodeo became his sport of choice. He has written about Rodeo every year since except from 1974 through 1978 when he served as manager of media relations for Edmonton’s Commonwealth games organizing committee, which included writing a book on this event. Dwayne covered every Canadian Finals Rodeo since 1979, every Calgary Stampede since 1982 and every National Finals Rodeo at Las Vegas since 1985 during his journalistic career of 50 years. Dwayne was honored as a Pioneer of Rodeo by the Calgary Stampede in 1997 and was inducted into the Canadian Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2003. In 2008, he was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame & Museum. Dwayne was a member of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Hall of Fame, a Calgary Stampede Pioneer of Rodeo, and, in December 2012 became a two-time winner of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Media Award for Excellence in Print Journalism. His passion to report the stories of Rodeo life in North American continued until his passing. The Rodeo participants, officials and families were so important to him. Dwayne is remembered by his brother Wayne, sister Shirley, daughters Laurie, Dawn, Ronnell, Mardene, son Shane and numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends are invited to a get-together in Memory of Dwayne at 11am on Wed, May 15th at Rotary House, Stampede Park, Calgary, Alta. Donations in Dwayne’s memory may be made to: Edmonton Rodeo Cowboys Benevolent Foundation, C/O Northlands, P.O. Box 1480, Edmonton, Alberta, T5J 2N5
