Robert Bateman Secondary students, teachers and volunteers spent Saturday together painting a special mural. “It ties together nature and the people that we lost,” said Victoria MacMillan, a Grade 12 student involved in the project. The large-scale mural on Laburnum Avenue by Palfy Park has been in the planning stages since 2011 and on Saturday the first phase of painting began. Bateman fine arts teacher Sherry Dunn came up with the idea, thinking the Palfry Park wall would be the perfect place for a nature-themed mural that celebrated some of the school’s achievements. The wall was an ongoing issue for the city and the Bateman Community Association due to graffiti. As the project developed, tragedy

struck the school, when student Cheryl McCormack took ecstasy and died. 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?” In all, there are seven memorials (six stu-

dents and one teacher) incorporated into the mural. MacMillan said that some fellow students were initially hesitant of the project, because it was still used as a memorial, but now that has changed. “It’s a way they are forever there and not forgotten.” Mila Djordjevic, a

Grade 12 student at RBSS and the student artist leader, has been involved in the project since the beginning and said that the adversity they overcame to complete the project has been an inspiration. “What I hope people get out of it is to never give up… other communities can do some-

thing similar.” Dunn said that “never give up” has become an unofficial motto for the wall. “It’s connected the people and the community to a place.” Another painting day will be scheduled to complete the project. For more information, visit www.theirwall. com.

Ontario. In the “senior reversible” category, Bob Campsall of Ontario took top spot, followed by Francis Sache of Rosedale. Campsall will also compete at the worlds.

The Abbotsford Farm and Country Market kicked of its summer season on Saturday and celebrated the beginning of its 10th year in Abbotsford’s downtown.

Farm market begins 10th year

The Abbotsford Farm and Country Market kicked off its summer season on Saturday. This will be the 10th year of providing local produce and artisan products in Abbotsford’s downtown. Organizers are currently seeking new volunteers for the market, which runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday on Montrose Avenue at George Ferguson Way. Market manager Bruce Fatkin said people come for the local produce but stay for the sense of community. Fatkin said they need volunteers to help with the early-morning set-up, the information table

– handing out flyers and answering questions – and managing social media accounts. Visitors usually number about 1,200 to 1,300 each Saturday. Vendors sell locally grown and organic produce, as well as made-in-B.C. jams, jewelry, artisan cheeses and breads, meat and eggs, and more. Gwen Settle, treasurer and market ambassador, said vendors are knowledgeable and can provide advice on how to use their produce and products. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Bruce Fatkin at 604-996-1542. For more information, visit www.abbotsfordfarmandcountrymarket.com, or their Facebook page.

More charges in Kulwinder Gill slaying

DR.VISHAL SHARMA BSC, DDS, FRCD(C), FCDS(BC) SPECIALIST IN ORHTODONTICS & DENTOFACIAL ORTHOPEDICS

Four men now face first-degree murder

Vikki HOPES

Abbotsford News

Additional charges have been laid in the 2009 murder of Kulwinder Gill of Abbotsford. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) announced on April 22 that firstdegree murder charges had been laid against three men – Gill’s husband, Iqbal Gill, 49; Gurpreet Atwal, 26, of Abbotsford; and Jaspreet Sohi, 28, of Surrey. At that time, a fourth man – Sukhpal Johal, 26, of Surrey – was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and accessory after the fact. IHIT announced last Wednesday that Johal’s conspiracy charge has since been changed to first-degree murder, and Sohi has been given an additional

charge of accessory after the fact. All four are next scheduled to appear in Abbotsford provincial court on Monday, May 13. Kulwinder was out for a walk with her husband on the evening of April 27, 2009 when she was struck by a pickup truck in the rural area of Townshipline and Bell roads, east of Highway 11. Responding officers were flagged down by her husband, who led them to a water-filled ditch where Gill had been thrown by the impact. Police seized a suspect vehicle with signs of damage dumped on acreage several blocks away. The incident was initially believed to be a hit-and-run accident, but police soon began investigating it as a suspicious death.

WHAT IS AN ORTHODONTIST? ”Dentists, Orthodontists, they’re all the same right?” We hear our patients asking this question as they wonder about the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist. Before becoming an orthodontist, Dr. Sharma started out in dental school and earned a DDS (dental degree), just like your family dentist. After dental school however, Dr. Sharma stayed in school for a few more years and became an expert in orthodontics, which focuses on tooth, jaw alignment, and bite problems like overbites and under bites. His learning comes directly from classroom and clinical study that includes doing research, gaining years of experience treating patients and their varying complexities.

IS IT NECESSARY TO SEE AN ORTHODONTIST? WHY SEE AN ORTHODONTIST? Like many things, the art and science of Orthodontics is complex – the most challenging part of malocclusion is knowing why it exists and how to treat it. With specialty training in this field, an Orthodontist, like Dr. Sharma can help educate and guide you towards the right treatment. Equally important is knowing what the possible solutions are. The old adage goes ‘if all you have is a hammer, everything will look like a nail’. This is not how you want to approach your orthodontic treatment. There are metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign®, and hidden braces that go on the backside of your teeth. The important part is knowing the strengths and weaknesses of each type of treatment and coming up with the perfect combination that is just right for you or your child.

Yes. In orthodontic terms, ‘malocclusion’ is the word for crooked, crowded, spaced, protruding, or overlapping teeth. In other words, if teeth don’t fit together perfectly, you have malocclusion. When the teeth don’t fit together perfectly there are two main reasons: dental and skeletal; in other words, the teeth and the jaws. The question is, how much of the problem is due to the jaws, and how much of the problem is due to the teeth? Malocclusion can be a contributing factor in poor hygiene, gum problems, bone loss, and even tooth loss.

HOW DO I SEE AN ORTHODONTIST? There’s good news -visiting our office is easy. There is no referral necessary and we provide a complimentary consultation. Contact us via phone or email to book your consultation today.

At Aura Orthodontics, we can help you make the right decision.

Other Hand Adventure is always thrilling, not only in its experience but in the retelling to others who were not able to share it with you. And in a way, that is what makes adventure fun … to return filled with stories of exploits, dangers or simply the good times you had. Afflicting slide shows (remember those in the days before computers and camera phones?) on unsuspecting guests to display in excruciating detail your latest camping trip can be, said in the most charitable way, painfully boring. Yet, the pictures and the accompanying story can often be interesting, and provide impetus for you to embark on similar adventures. So that is why I find it so difficult to

understand why, just two weeks into a campaign to attract applications from half a million people by Aug. 31, that 80,000 people (35 of them Canadian) have already signed up for a one-way trip to Mars. One-way! No return to share the slides. No one will ever hear you, at least in person, recount your adventures. In a perverse way, the trip sounds appealing. But who in their right mind is willing to end their life as they know it to live their remaining years dependent completely upon the interests of others who may, or may not, continue to supply you with the necessities of life. And once you’re on Mars, there’ll be no nipping off to Costco to re-supply the toilet paper cupboard, or the hardware store to fix the plumbing system. No water but what has been, and will be, sent up to you. And no food other than at the convenience and expense of those who watch your experiment from afar (like about 35 million miles). What if, while you are basking in the

desert-like landscape of Mars awaiting your next supply shuttle, war breaks out on Earth, or the brilliant minds behind this project die, and with them the funding? And most of all, after the thrill of the

After all, you’ll be out of cell phone range.

Thieves target older Nissans A car thief, or a group, is targeting older-model Nissan vehicles in the Townline Hill area of Abbotsford. Const. Ian MacDonald said in the last three and a half weeks, 12 such vehicles have been stolen, including two over the last weekend. Before that period, there had been only two thefts of Nissan vehicles so far in 2013. MacDonald said the vehicles targeted

range from economy cars to SUVs, and all were manufactured before 1995. He said about half have been recovered in the Abbotsford area, while the others have been found in other communities. MacDonald said individual car thieves tend to have a preference for what type of vehicle they target. “We obviously have someone, or a group of people, that are good at stealing Nissans,� he said.

Abbotsford Police were called to Gladwin Road near Sevenoaks Shopping Centre Friday night by a good Samaritan who spotted a man staggering down the road and bleeding badly. When police arrived they sat the man down and began talking with him. VIDEINOE It was obvious that the man ONLws.com abbyne was extremely drunk, and in need of help. An ambulance was called, but when they stood the man up he bolted. Running in the middle of traffic, police pursued the man on foot and found him a few minutes later up a tree. He was brought down and taken to hospital. Abbotsford Police have no idea why he suddenly ran off.

Trading a truck for a bike

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been more than 18 months since Brian Miller decided to trade in his truck and start riding his bike to work. Bike to Work Week runs May 27 to June 2 across B.C. and everyone is encouraged to participate in the event. For more information visit biketowork.ca.

Brian Miller enjoys riding to work every day Brian Miller, a primary worker at the Fraser Valley Institution in Abbotsford, made the choice to trade in his truck for a bicycle over 18 months ago. Miller is conscious about his health and his environmental impact. He has biked to work every shift, regardless of the weather conditions, since making the switch.    â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the extra 119,000 calories I burn per year just getting to work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something I have to do anyway.â&#x20AC;? Miller said biking to work has positive impacts in many areas of his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I save $4,000 per year by not owning a second vehicle; I reduce my carbon footprint; and my cardio workout is free.â&#x20AC;? When Miller heard of Bike to Work Week last year, he not only encouraged his coworkers to participate with him, he offered to ride with them to help them feel more comfortable cycling in traffic. Miller advises those who cycle to wear a helmet and ensure they have a flashing light in the front and back of their bikes in case the sun sets during their commute. He warns that drivers should acknowledge that it is legal for a cyclist to ride on the road, and illegal for cyclists to ride on the

sidewalks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, give cyclists space when you pass, and remember it is motoristsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; responsibility to only pass when safe to do so,â&#x20AC;? he said. Miller is encouraging residents to participate in Bike to Work Week (May 27 to June 2) across B.C. Participants are encouraged to try cycling to work at least one day during Bike to Work Week and register online at www. biketowork.ca for chances to win prizes. Registration is free.

Home invaders victimize elderly couple

An elderly couple were the victims of a home invasion last Tuesday afternoon in Abbotsford. The incident took place at about 2:30 p.m. in the 28000 block of Starr Road. Const. Ian MacDonald said three masked men in dark clothing broke into the rural residence. The husband and wife – in their 70s – were thrown to the ground and bound while the suspects, armed with at least a metal bar, searched the home. The culprits stole nine guns and a large amount of ammunition, but did not take other valuables in the home. MacDonald said all the firearms, including handguns and

long guns, were legally owned and registered. He said the couple does not have a criminal history nor does the home have a history of grow-ops or drug raids. The man and woman were able to free themselves and contact police after the suspects left. The pair were transported to hospital for the treatment of minor injuries, including bruises and abrasions. MacDonald said they were shaken by the incident. The major crime unit is now leading the investigation. Anyone with information can call the Abbotsford Police at 604859-5225, text abbypd (222973) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.

Abbotsford News Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Teaming up against gangs Abbotsford was once ground-zero for gang warfare that raged across the Lower Mainland. Police initiatives, including the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, and the Abbotsford Police Department Gang Suppression Unit, have turned the tide.

ABBOTSFORD GANG SUPPRESSION UNIT The Abbotsford Police Department’s gang suppression unit (GSU) was formed in April 2010 in response to the number of gang-related murders and violent crimes in the city. When the unit formed, police said their top concern was public safety, as they aimed for a 20 per cent drop in violent gang crime and a 15 per cent reduction in listed gang associates. Those numbers have since been reached. The 14-member team’s role is to disrupt gang activity, keep tabs on known criminals and make arrests where necessary. Police Chief Bob Rich has always said the goal is to make Abbotsford a miserable place for criminals to do business. His was the first department to identify the Duhres as a prominent crime group in the Lower Mainland. The GSU works in consultation with other agencies, including the CFSEU-BC, to coordinate investigations.

G

ang violence and murders escalated in the Lower Mainland in 2008-09, fueled by rival gangs’ battle for dominance in the competitive drug trade. Leading this bloody war on one side was the Red Scorpions gang headed by Abbotsford’s notorious Bacon brothers – Jamie, Jarrod and Jonathan – while on the other was the United Nations Gang. Abbotsford recorded eight homicides in 2008 and 11 in 2009 – most gangrelated – leading to the city being dubbed the “Murder Capital of Canada.” The violence sometimes spilled onto city streets – as epitomized by the incident in January 2009 in which numerous shots were fired at Jamie Bacon in broad daylight while he was in his vehicle at the busy intersection of South Fraser Way and Sumas Way. The Abbotsford Police Department responded to the violence by forming its gang suppression unit (GSU) in April

A CFSEU-BC and News special report 2010. The GSU’s focus was the disruption and intervention of gang activity, working in consultation with other agencies such as the regional Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU-BC), which is the province’s anti-gang police unit. CFSEU-BC is an integrated joint forces operation that draws and develops highly specialized officers from federal, provincial and municipal agencies around the province, including Abbotsford. The team of 400 officers and civilians focuses on intelligence sharing, coordination and strategic deployment against the threat of violence posed by organized crime groups and gangs in B.C. Although the Red Scorpions collapsed with the imprisonment of two Bacon brothers, and the murder of the third, the CFSEU and other units continue to operate as other people fill the roles left by gangsters who have been jailed or killed.

CFSEU-BC IS MADE UP OF POLICE OFFICERS FROM: Abbotsford Police Department, Canada Border Services Agency, Central Saanich Police Service, Delta Police Department, New Westminster Police Department, Organized Crime Agency of British Columbia, Port Moody Police Department, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Saanich Police Department, Transit Police, Vancouver Police Department, Victoria Police Department, West Vancouver Police Department. Other partners include the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police and the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the Organized Crime Agency of British Columbia (OCABC), a fully independent and provinciallydesignated police agency. The CFSEU has now published its first-ever Community Report, which details the agency’s activities, objectives and statistics. The report can be read online at bc-anti-gang.com.

gang busting IN 2009 THE CFSEU AND ABBOTSFORD POLICE DEPARTMENT OFFICERS SCORED A MAJOR SUCCESS AGAINST ORGANIZED CRIME, WITH AN INVESTIGATION AND OPERATION THAT NETTED ONE OF THE NOTORIOUS BACON BROTHERS AND A GROUP OF RIVALS

PERSONS OF INTEREST (POI) INVOLVED IN GANG-RELATED CRIME AND ACTIVITIES T The average age of a Person of Interest in a gang crime is about 36 years old. T Almost all POI are men and range in age between 19 at the youngest to 65 for the oldest. T A POI is mostly likely to become a leader when they are in their late 20s to early 30s. T About 41 per cent of all POI had a criminal conviction. T POI themselves are often on record for violence, armed and/or dangerous behaviour. T Other POI are often charged or convicted of criminal offences including assault, frauds, firearms, impaired driving, trafficking, production, distribution and possession of drugs. CFSEU-BC Research

GANG LIFE IS NASTY, SHORT AND BRUTAL If you are 30, a male and have a violent criminal past, your probability of becoming a victim of a gang-related murder increases substantially, research by the CFSEU-BC has found. Led by Dr. Gerry Stearns, CFSEU-BC’s Policy and Strategic Directions section reviewed the nature and character of gang-related homicides in Metro Vancouver municipalities including Chilliwack from 2006 to 2010. The victim’s age, gender, previous criminal background, gang affiliations, location of body, and cause of death were some of the factors reviewed by the researchers. It’s a grim picture for those who become involved in organized crime and gangs whether they are linked to it through direct associations, or actual members. A typical gang-related homicide victim is about 30 years old, and primarily male. During the four-year period of study, 118 people – 112 men and six women– were murdered. While most of the victims were about 30, other victims ranged in age from 17 to 59. CFSEU-BC’s researchers found that the vast majority of victims had previous charges or convictions involving drugs. Many of the victims also had violent criminal pasts. The majority of victims were members of a gang, not just associates or minor players. “At the time these young men and women were murdered, nearly 30 per cent of them were gang or organized crime members,” noted Stearns, a psychologist with CFSEU-BC. The most common membership came from the Independent Soldiers (7), the Red Scorpions (7) and the United Nations Gang (5). Others held membership in a variety of groups including Persian and Asian organized crime and the Hells Angels. “The rest of the victims were non-members but associated to the gang, or were girlfriends. Most disturbing, some of those killed were innocent bystanders caught unaware in the middle of a gang war,” she said. CSFEU-BC’s research also showed that many of the victims were murdered in places familiar to them such as near their vehicles, near their homes or in their own neighbourhoods. Mirroring their own violent past, the degree of the violence the victims suffered was staggering with the majority of the victims – 84.8 per cent – shot, followed by eight per cent who were viciously beaten and 5.9 per cent who were stabbed. One person was found burned to death.

WHAT CFSEU RESEARCH SHOWS: T Average age of the victim is about 30 years old T The majority of victims – 96 per cent – are men  T 29 per cent of the victims were flagged as dangerous, violent, or armed T Over 60 per cent have been charged or convicted of one criminal offence with more than 20 per cent charged or convicted of a violent offence T 78 per cent of the bodies were found in or near their cars or homes T The majority – over 80 per cent – were killed by gunshot

t was a momentous day for officers of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) and their colleagues around the region. It was Nov. 26, 2009 when simultaneous arrests of five key players in the gang world occurred in Abbotsford, marking the biggest such operation to take place in this city. Project E-Pintle, an extensive undercover operation, was launched in February 2009 in response to the ongoing drug wars between the Red Scorpions and the United Nations Gang. The rival gangs thought they were each negotiating an exclusive deal with well-connected criminals who would safely import $3 million worth of cocaine from Mexico to the Lower Mainland. They were mistaken. The key player in the negotiations was actually a police agent, and in November 2009 the following people were arrested and charged: Jarrod Bacon and Wayne Scott on the Red Scorpions side, and Nicholas Wester, Daryl Johnson and Douglas Vanalstine from the UN Gang. All were from Abbotsford, except for Vanalstine – said to be the leader of the UN Gang at the time – who was from Vernon. Scott and Bacon were charged with conspiracy to traffic cocaine. The other three faced the same charge, as well as possession for the purpose of trafficking. At the time of the arrests, both gangs were aggressively recruiting new members and still jockeying for control of territory, the CFSEU said at the time. All the charges have since gone before the courts. Bacon and Scott – the grandfather of Bacon’s young son – both went on trial, starting in late 2011, and were convicted. Bacon is now serving a 12-year sentence, which he is appealing, while Scott was sentenced to three and a half years. Vanalstine and Johnson pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge last December, while the drug possession charge was stayed. Vanalstine received a 10-year jail term, and Johnson was sentenced to eight years. Charges were dropped against Wester as part of a plea agreement. Bacon’s arrest was preceded by the April 2009 arrest of his brother Jamie for his alleged involvement in the Surrey Six killings. In that case, four alleged gangsters and two innocent bystanders were killed in an apartment tower in Surrey on Oct. 19, 2007. One of the innocent men was Ed Schellengberg of Abbotsford, who was in the building working on a gas fireplace. Three of the five men charged with those murders are scheduled to go to trial this fall. Jamie does not yet have a trial date. The targeted fatal shooting of his brother Jonathan in Kelowna in August 2011 brought an end to the Red Scorpions’ dominance in the gang world. His killing recently resulted in murder charges against three gang members. The CFSEU and police forces across B.C. continue to deal with other players in the dark and violent world of gang conflict.

ORGANIZED CRIME AND GANGS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA In 1980, law enforcement listed just a handful of gangs and organized crime groups operating in British Columbia. Today, it is estimated that 188 criminal groups exist in a province where the gang and organized crime landscape is enterprise-driven. Gangs are no longer based on ethnicity. Due to sustained law enforcement efforts, they are reluctant to identify themselves. Even outlaw motorcycle gangs like the Hells Angels are reluctant to wear their “colours” regularly.

Saturday didn’t bring the kind of sweeping success the Abbotsford Rugby Football Club might have envisioned, but the provincial championship festivities at Klahanie Park in West Vancouver still represented one of the proudest moments in club history. A trio of local men’s sides had battled their way to their respective divisions’ B.C. finals –  an unprecedented feat for the ARFC. The Div. 2 squad hoisted their trophy, downing the Surrey Beavers 36-26 in the Okanagan Spring Brewery League 2 final. But the Div. 1 team fell short of promotion to the CDI Premier League, dropping a 31-27 decision to the Vancouver Rowing Club, and Abby also sustained a defeat in the Div. 3 Tier B final, falling 27-12 to Capilano. That only one of the three emerged victorious admittedly stung a little, ARFC head coach Jason Young said. But in the big picture, it’s hard to find fault with what the local club accomplished this season. “To be on the (losing) end of a final like that, it’s pretty disappointing,” Young said, referring to the Div. 1 game which went down to the wire. “But overall, I look at it now, and having three teams in the final, there are a lot of clubs who would love to be in our place. “It was a great day for the club, no matter win or loss.” The Div. 2 side sup-

Panthers win Valley title

Abbotsford News

If the Abbotsford Senior Panthers perform at provincials like they did in the first half of the Fraser Valley AA senior girls rugby championship game last Thursday, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be hard-pressed to defend their B.C. title. If they play like they did in the second half, though, heaven help any team that stands in their way. The Heritage Park Highlanders gave the Panthers a bit of a scare at Exhibition Park, building a 12-10 lead late in the first half, but it was all Panthers from there â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  they scored 27 unanswered points en route to a 37-12 triumph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got a little selfish,â&#x20AC;? said Tiffany Picketts, the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; outstanding No. 8, offering a blunt assessment of her teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-half showing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all kind of wanted to score the try. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the halftime talk, we ended up playing as a team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get-

ting across the line as a group of 15 instead of individuals.â&#x20AC;? Amara Lowney paced the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attack with two tries, with singles from Nakisa Levale, Shelby Pihl, Alexis Samplonius, Gurpreet Dhaliwal and Picketts, who also booted a convert. The Panthers advance to provincials (May 23-25 at UBC) as the top seed out of the Fraser Valley. The Robert Bateman senior girls are also ticketed for the B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, coming off a 10-0 win over D.W. Poppy of Langley in the Valley AA bronze medal game. The Timberwolves have been decimated by injuries of late, but Morgan Ursel and Sarah Miller scored tries in the win over Poppy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working at bare-bones right now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a lot of Grade 9s and 10s having to step up,â&#x20AC;?

Abbotsford golfer Nick Taylor shot a nine-under 63 to set a new course record at Pitt Meadows Golf Club.

ENVY. NOW AVAILABLE

IN WHITE.

As the weather has heated up, so too has Nick Taylor. After making it through local qualifying for the U.S. Open last Monday in Bellingham, the Abbotsford golfer came back north of the border and submitted a record-breaking performance on the Vancouver Golf Tour. Taylor found himself tied with James Allenby of Langley after the first of two rounds of the Pitt Meadows Classic,

having carded a sixunder 66 on Tuesday. But Taylor trumped that on Wednesday, firing a scorching nineunder 63 to break the course record at Pitt Meadows Golf Club. Taylor notched seven birdies and an eagle chip-in on hole 15, which left him with a dominant sixstroke margin over runner-up Darren Wallace. Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of the $14,000 purse was $2,500, plus a bonus prize of a Big Max lightweight golf trolley worth $300.

and Tyler Adams scored tries, while Jordan Tait notched four converts and Bryce Hewko booted a penalty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started out on fire,â&#x20AC;? Young noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went to sleep for a little bit, but we pulled it out in the end. It was just all the young guys pulling together â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was a good team win.â&#x20AC;? The Div. 1 squad had beaten the Vancouver Rowing Club twice earlier this season, and led 12-10 at the half. But the Rowers surged to a 24-15 lead shortly after the break, and held off a resilient Abby team down the stretch. Brent Bradbury, Pat Shields, Dan Helm and Lucas de Beer notched tries for the ARFC, while Some Mosegau kicked a pair of converts and a penalty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was tons of intensity in the air, and guys were out there laying their bodies on the line,â&#x20AC;? Young said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the day, someone has to be the loser, and unfortunately it was us.â&#x20AC;? In the Div. 3 Tier B final, top-seeded Abby and third-ranked Capilano were tied 7-7 at the break, but the underdog squad carried the play in the second half. Abbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s points came courtesy of Lane Tennant and Brian Cuthbertson tries and a conversion from Khaene Hirschman.

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Devon Toews describes the Surrey Eagles’ run to the RBC Cup, Canada’s junior A hockey championship tournament, as “a bit of an underdog story.” The Eagles, after all, weren’t mentioned in the national top20 rankings to start the season, and they didn’t make their first appearance until mid-January. And yet here they are, one of five teams still alive in the quest for a national title, the B.C. Hockey League and Western Canada Cup trophies already secured. “We’ve had a good year,” noted Toews, a smooth-skating 19-year-old defenceman from Abbotsford. “We were never ranked high in Canada . . . but it seemed like we took the league by storm.” The underdog label that Toews applies to his team also suits him pretty well individually. In 2009, he helped

the Abbotsford Hawks win the B.C. bantam Tier 1 title and finish second at the Western Canadians, but he was passed over in the WHL bantam draft due to his diminutive stature (5’2”). But he sprouted eight inches over the next two years, and has grown into an elite junior A blueliner. Toews racked up 10 goals and 37 as-

sists for 47 points in 48 games with the Eagles during the 2012-13 regular season and was named top defenceman in the BCHL’s Coastal Conference. He added nine more points in 17 BCHL playoff games as Surrey won the title, and posted six assists in five games at the Western Canada Cup in Nanaimo as the Eagles emerged

victorious to punch their ticket to the RBC Cup. Toews was named MVP of the Western Canada Cup. “I’ve always been looked at as a smaller D-man who wasn’t big enough for the WHL draft,” he said, reflecting on his remarkable rise. “So I went the BCHL route. Things went well, and in my second year in Surrey here, I got the perfect opportunity to be the No. 1 D-man. “I’ve been given opportunities, and the team’s played well, which makes me look even better.” If Toews’s present circumstances are pretty rosy, the future might be even brighter. He’s got a full-ride scholarship in place from the Quinnipiac University Bobcats, an NCAA Division 1 program in Hamden, Conn. Quinnipiac is coming off an appearance in the NCAA national championship game, where they fell to Yale University. The downside to Quinnipiac’s defeat is that Toews’s defence partner with the Eagles, Dan O’Keefe, has committed to Yale. “I had to wear a Yale shirt all day, because Quinnipiac lost,” Toews recalled with a chuckle. “But everything’s worked out this year. My team’s played well, my university’s done well, so it seems like I’m in a good spot.” Q The RBC Cup opened on the weekend in Summerside, P.E.I., and the Eagles blasted the Truro (N.S.) Bearcats 7-0 in their first game. Toews picked up two assists. The title game is on Sunday, May 19.

Living history workshops offered at the Reach As part of its Living History Series, The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford will present two workshops of interest to seniors and family memorykeepers. The first takes place May 21 and is called Caring for and Digitizing Family Photos. During the workshop, the Reach’s collections manager, Kris Foulds, will provide quick and easy tips to help you extend the life of your cherished family photos and show you how easy it is to

transfer photographic prints to digital media for easy storage, sharing and reproduction. Foulds has been working in museums for over 25 years and has extensive experience in

will share his wealth of experience in researching and recording family history. Through his hobby of publishing his own books, including family history research and

stories,  travels, children’s stories including a Children’s History of Canada, and poems, Overy has gained valuable knowledge to share on how best to economically publish

your story. The workshops are free but pre-registration is required. Workshops will be held on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 to 3 p.m. with refreshments and op-

portunity for questions and answers after the session. Contact Kris Foulds, kfoulds@thereach.ca or 604-8648087 (ext. 112) for more information or to pre-register.

Walk for life

On June 8, the Abbotsford Right to Life Society (www. abbotsfordrtl.ca) will host its 24th annual Walk for Life at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford. Walk for Life is a community oriented and family-friendly event. Festivities include a bouncy castle, face painting, balloons and a lowcost barbecue starting at noon. At 1:30 p.m. participants will walk or run either a four-km or eight-km route to raise support for women and children in their communities. This year, money raised from the Walk for Life will help open a pregnancy support centre in the Abbotsford area. “We’re really excited about this new ministry. Public awareness and education is crucial for saving women and children but practically supporting the women who are in difficult circumstances is just as important,” said Jared White, director of education and development for Abbotsford Right to Life. Those interested in participating can register for free online at www.walkforlife2013.ca. For more information, contact the Abbotsford Right to Life outreach centre at 604-852 4623.
