Ban on licensed grow-ops looms Council plans to prohibit city land from commercial pot use Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

As Health Canada changes its regulations to create commercial medical marijuana operations by 2014, the city will seek to ban any of the new, licensed grow-ops from establishing in Abbotsford. New federal regulations will end licences to grow marijuana in residential homes by April of next year, and at that time, all medical marijuana in Canada will be grown and distributed by commercial facilities. Council voted on Monday to prepare a bylaw that would stop the operation of commercial grow-ops in Abbotsford. Coun. Henry Braun raised the concern that prohibiting the grow-ops could lead to Charter challenges down the road. “This isn’t so dissimilar from our harm reduction bylaw,” he said, referring to the city’s controversial law prohibiting services such as needle exchanges, which is currently facing legal challenges and a human rights complaint. Braun asked if Abbotsford must allow for a zone where grow-ops can be located, similar to Chilliwack, which plans to allow the operations in a specially zoned areas that host industries like slaughterhouses, asphalt manufacturers and sewage treatment plants. Chilliwack will not allow grow-ops on agricultural land. City manager George Murray said that following discussions with the city’s legal Continued on A4

Sam Mellace has the perfect set-up for his medical marijuana grow-op. In the backwoods of Mission, the large lot is wooded and private. He has no neighbours. There’s only one road in, which he monitors. For the past decade, Mellace has been legally growing pot for personal use on agricultural land under Fraser Valley Regional District jurisdiction. But his operation is at risk. FVRD is considering banning grow-ops from farm land, relegating them to an industrial zoning. For Mellace, moving is not an option. “I’ll fight this tooth and nail. There isn’t anything here that’s not done to code, and I’ll show you. Securitywise, nobody has this kind of security,” Mellace told The News during a tour of his property in October. Mellace is a long-time marijuana activist who has influenced a growing list of regulations surrounding medical marijuana use and production. He has postponed his application to Health Canada for a licence to grow pot commercially due to the district’s intentions. FVRD is leaning towards permitting growops only on land zoned for industrial use, following a precedent set by Chilliwack in August. When new federal rules that ban grow-ops in private homes go into effect in April 2014, medical marijuana op-

erations in Chilliwack will be permitted in special industrial zones only, in the same class as slaughterhouses, asphalt manufacturers, and sewage treatment plants. The concern with allowing farm land to be used for growing medical marijuana are the potential odour and security risks. Some have also argued that it is unfair to give agricultural land-related tax breaks to pot growers.

During The News’ tour, Mellace’s complex was nearly odourless. When it comes to security, he argues that in an industrial facility he would be at much higher risk than he is now. “Putting everybody (medical marijuana growers) in an industrial area will cause criminal havoc,” he said. Mellace keeps the location of his current operation quiet. A separate office in Abbotsford, under the

name NewAge Medical Solutions, handles billing and deliveries. Trusted staff then truck supplies to Mission. The complex itself has ground sensors, alarms, cameras, and motion-activated lights. An eight-foot barbed wire fence surrounds the land, and there is a separate fence for the building housing the approximately 600 plants. At times of high production, there are guard dogs and armed secu-

counsel, staff are confident the issue is not the same as harm reduction and the city can zone its land as it wishes. The Health Canada website states that licensed producers are subject to municipal bylaws, such as zoning. Licensed producers are required to notify their

rity. Mellace worries he won’t be able to keep such tight control of the complex in an industrial area, especially if his location is publicly known. Other than security, Mellace also fears the higher operational costs of a larger industrial facility would put him out of business. In the future, Mellace wants to grow his plants in the ground, shielded by low greenhouses. And he’s not looking for farm status or tax breaks. Mellace supports closing grow-ops in residential areas, and moving them to regulated locations that are known to RCMP and Health Canada. His current setup fits this criteria, he said. “I’m nowhere near a hospital, nowhere near a school. No neighbours, no nothing. And that’s the way it should be. You’re supposed to be in remote areas,” he said. FVRD will consider zoning of medical marijuana at the next electoral area services committee on Nov. 13 at 1 p.m. in Chilliwack. Mellace said he is applying to be a delegate at the meeting in order to present his case. The federal government is phasing out rules that allow private users to grow pot in their homes. Instead, pot will be grown in factory farms monitored by the RCMP and public health inspectors. The first licences to operate such farms have already been granted.

local government, police force and fire officials of their intention to apply for a licence, and a report from city staff states that Abbotsford has already received notifications from four firms interested in operating commercial grow-ops. Health Canada will not limit the number of production licences in the country and has received more than 180 applications to date.

Council votes down bus plan Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News 

Abbotsford council shot down a plan for an intercity bus running between Chilliwack, Abbotsford and Langley on Monday, despite the proposal receiving approval from the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) and the City of Chilliwack. But Mayor Bruce Banman said that with two councillors absent from the meeting – and

the additional absence of Coun. Simon Gibson, who was elected to the legislature – he will bring the issue back to be voted on again. After a presentation by representatives from the FVRD, BC Transit, and the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) – who provided an explanation of the plan in further detail, including costs – council was asked to approve a bylaw that would allow the group to take the next step in planning, which

would include determining routes, schedules and fares. But Coun. Henry Braun said he had concerns about the pricetag associated with the service, which would see BC Transit pay about 50 per cent of the cost. Abbotsford would pay 63.8 per cent of the remaining costs (roughly $588,236) and Chilliwack would pay 36.2 per cent (roughly $333,764). Braun said he didn’t support a plan that had two cities paying for the service, while

Langley paid nothing.   Banman said that as the approval wouldn’t truly be final, “there is no reason not to pass this.” However, council’s vote was split and the motion failed. Banman said after the meeting that he is “at a loss as to why we wouldn’t pass this,” and as he has the ability to bring the issue back at an upcoming council meeting, “that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”

Still no go for backyard chickens Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Two local chicken owners appealed to council to reconsider the recently upheld ban on backyard flocks, but the city has held its stance on keeping hens out of urban areas. Council voted on Oct. 7 to continue its prohibition of urban chickens, citing concerns for neighbours and the potential impact on the agricultural centre. Tanya Buskell and Wendy Worrall presented at Monday’s council meeting, stating that many of the city’s fears about grievances from neighbours and avian flu are not as big a concern as they have been made out to be. She said the decibel levels of chickens clucking is much lower than a dog barking, and there is little evidence to suggest backyard flocks contribute to avian flu. She said the city of Abbotsford is well equipped to support chicken owners, as UFV offers a class on raising backyard hens and the city is home to a provincial Animal Health Centre that can provide necessary services for chicken owners.

Abbotsford News

The Animal Liberation Front, an underground animal rights group, has released an anonymous letter from a member claiming responsibility for releasing hundreds of mink on an Abbotsford mink farm at Lefeuvre and Downes roads on Oct. 2. The letter reads, in part: “During the early hours of Wednesday, October 2, the Animal Liberation Front raided a mink farm near Lefeuvre and Downes Road in Abbotsford, about an hour from Vancouver. “The entire perim-

eter fence at the back of the farm was cut before over 800 cages were opened to allow the mink a chance to escape to freedom. “The surrounding ecosystem was ideal mink habitat, marshlands and dense forest where the animals made a swift escape.” The ALF press office told The Abbotsford News that such anonymous letters are acceptable as truth. ALF members work anonymously and often illegally to liberate animals in captivity the world over. They send notices of actions to the press office, which relays them to the wider world. This would not be

the first such incident in the Fraser Valley. An ALF member claimed responsibility for releasing 4,000 mink from an Aldergrove farm in 2008. The ALF member who allegedly broke cages on the Abbotsford farm on Oct. 2 describes in the letter the conditions in severe terms: “The cages the mink were locked in were full of feces and mostly rusted shut. Mink living in cages together had fought and plenty of the animals were covered in severe wounds. Some cages had dead animals, clearly left for weeks.” Mink farms fall under the Ministry of Agriculture jurisdiction. The B.C. Fur Farm Act

requires that licensees “maintain in a sanitary condition the place where a fur bearing animal is kept, and observe any regulation on cleanliness.” However, the ministry does not routinely inspect mink farms. “The ministry doesn’t conduct scheduled inspections but acts on complaints, and has not received any complaints about the quality of fencing or caging,” confirmed ministry of agriculture spokesperson Robert Boelens by email. “There are no requirements to report escapes and the ministry has not received reports from any licensees. ”

Two more robberies

A5

Two more armed robberies have taken place in Abbotsford. They occurred within about an hour of each other Tuesday evening and involved the same suspect. However, police are not yet certain whether the same man was involved in six previous armed robberies in the area. The first incident was at about 4:45 p.m. at the Red Apple Food Store at 32354 Marshall Rd. The suspect was wearing a dark hoodie and a ball cap with the rim turned forward. The second was at the Esso gas station at 32375 Huntingdon Rd. at about 5:40 p.m. In this case, the robber was wearing a white zip-up jacket and had turned the ball cap around. The suspect was wearing sunglasses and carrying a handgun in both cases. He is described as a Caucasian man, age 20 to 30, 5’ 8” to 5’10”, and with a thin to medium build. The physical description is similar to that of the suspect in four previous robberies in Abbotsford and two in Mission. But in those cases, the suspect covered the lower part of his face. Anyone with information is asked to call Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225.

In June 2013, the Rotary club of Abbotsford held its annual fund raiser, the Million Dollar Hole in One event at Fraser Glen golf course. As a result of these significant efforts from all members of the club, a cheque for $42,700 was presented to David Turchen, AHS Vice Chair and Debbie Lehmann, AHS Executive Director. This support is part of the long term support and commitment that this rotary club has made to the building of Holmberg House. This significant contribution in 2013 would not have been possible without the generous matching dollars from Special Sponsors Dave & Lee Holmberg. Debbie Lehmann said “The rotary club of Abbotsford has always been there for Abbotsford Hospice Society. I am continually amazed at the effort that all members of this club put into this significant project to help us build the first adult hospice in Abbotsford. And, this club will continue to support us in the 2014 year”.

Abbotsford’s Bessie Heyes celebrates 100th birthday The couple lived in England for two years and then moved back to B.C. They have one daughter, who lives in Seattle. Heyes moved to Abbotsford in 2007 and lived in a condo, where she enjoyed running fitness classes. She was also a hospital volunteer for 20 years, doing visits and office work. Heyes moved to Menno Hospital in July 2011.

The celebration included a big cake, and lots of cards and balloons. Heyes was asked about her plans for the future. “Nothing planned, but things are bound to turn up. They always do.” Heyes was born and raised in North Vancouver, and met her husband, an engineer from England stationed in Vancouver as a naval officer, during the Second World War.

Local woman born and raised in North Van Elizabeth (Bessie) Heyes of Abbotsford celebrated her 100th birthday on Monday, Oct. 21 with a party at Menno Hospital. Heyes said she was excited about marking such an auspicious occasion. “It’s wonderful. I didn’t think this was going to happen,” she said.

Two binders full of letters of support were dropped off at city hall by representatives from Abbotsford Community Services (ACS) on Thursday, Oct. 17, hoping to illustrate to the city the community support for the organization’s proposed supportive housing project. Janna Dieleman, manager of donor and community relations at ACS, dropped off the letters and said they show the level of support for the proposal. “Our intent in compiling these binders was to give mayor and council the opportunity to review all the comments from the community in a single concise format. Many of the letters we received at our office

came in the form of hand-written notes and some in the body of emails. “We just wanted to be sure that everything we received also got through to mayor and council.” The project, which would build a lowbarrier housing project for homeless men at 2408 Montvue Ave. with funding from BC Housing, has been controversial since it was announced in June. Some business owners and residents in the downtown core, as well as the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association, object to the project because it would require the city to change the zoning for the site, which currently prohibits supportive housing. Some groups, such as the Abbotsford Chamber,

have suggested looking for an alternate location, but one has yet to be identified. Organizations like MCC, the Abbotsford Community Foundation, Vancity Community Foundation and many businesses, doctors and private individuals have expressed their support for this project, said Dieleman. Dieleman noted that “one letter writer encourages the business community in the downtown corridor to move beyond the ‘not in my neighborhood’ approach and help to change the conversation about how Abbotsford responds to the housing needs of our most vulnerable population.” ACS submitted the rezoning application to city hall on April 19, 2013.

ACS is still waiting to find out when its rezoning application will come before council as part of the public hearing process. At city council on Monday, Coun. Patricia Ross asked staff when the project will come to council for discussion. Coun. Henry Braun said it may be time to bring the project forward for discussion, adding that he has the impression that BC Housing cannot wait forever before it will take the funding elsewhere. City manager George Murray said staff are looking to confirm the timing to bring forward ACS’s rezoning application and he believes the application could proceed to a council meeting in late November or early December.

Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford senior was recently bilked out of $8,000 as part of the “grandparents’ scam” that recently resurfaced in the area. Const. Ian MacDonald said the woman received a phone call from someone purporting to be her grandson and even using the person’s actual name. The caller said he had been involved in a car crash, but had limited time to talk and his lawyer would be calling.

A few minutes later, a caller pretending to be the lawyer told the woman that her grandson had been involved in a car accident, causing several thousand dollars in damages. He said the grandson could be facing jail time, unless the woman paid the damages. She was instructed to wire $4,000 to a location in Lima, Peru. A second transaction, also of $4,000, was requested and sent. The senior was about to wire a third transaction of that amount when an employee at the wire-

transfer service became concerned and asked the woman some questions. The worker advised the woman not to send any more money and to report the matter to the police. The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) confirmed to the woman that she had been the victim of the “grandparents’ scam.” In early September, the APD reported the scam had resurfaced in the city, after a senior man was defrauded of $2,500.

QUESTION

WebTalk Activists release mink?

OF THE WEEK Do you support Abbotford council’s plan to ban medical pot grows in this city?

Yikes, condemning the poor little things to death just to make a point? Previous article contributor stated the farmed mink could not survive in the wild. Could have at least timed it better with salmon spawning, so the eagles weren’t so hungry.... Hope some of them beat the odds and manage to adapt. Lynne Wright

To answer, go to abbynews.com

Well at least the people who lost all of the ducks to the released minks can go after the right people for compensation! While I don’t like the whole fur industry thing, letting the animals loose and unprepared to survive is just as cruel. I remember one such incident years ago in Langley where they found most of the released minks along the roadside, run over by cars. Mary Madsen

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Donations to the food bank are at a record low. Have you reduced your charitable donations this year? 125 responded:

It also overburdens an ecosystem with voracious predators that are known for gorging and mass killings of prey animals. *sigh* Elizabeth Hillen

YES: 52 % NO: 48 %

British Columbia oil spill study misinterpreted Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views

T

he release of the B.C. government’s detailed study into oil spill response capability off the West Coast created the usual brief wave of media shock and horror. This just in! If crude oil spilled in the Dixon Entrance, the storm-tossed sea lane north of Haida Gwaii, the combined resources of Canadian and U.S. containment and collection response could only recover an estimated four per cent of it. And that’s in the summer! The winter recovery rate would be more like three per cent. Talk radio and website headlines set the narrative in minutes. How could anyone even consider running oil tankers through that pristine B.C. coastal area? It’s crazy! Here’s the big fact clearly stated in the study by U.S.-based Nuka Research and Planning Group, and ignored by most of the media and public. There are hundreds

of tankers filled with crude oil sailing through these stormy seas every year. It’s been going on since Alaska North Slope crude was developed in the 1970s. Six of the seven oil spill simulations run by Nuka are based on Alaska crude, because that’s overwhelmingly what has been shipped along B.C.’s North Coast for 40 years. This lack of crude oil spill response capability has existed the entire time, without a whisper of protest or media attention, even after the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster near the oil’s point of origin. The current narrative, hammered home by U.S.-controlled environmental groups and their aboriginal partners in the “Great Bear Rainforest,” is that only Canadian oil is a threat.  How much Alaska crude is shipped down the B.C. coast? According to Nuka’s analysis, it’s currently about 38 million cubic metres each year. That’s enough

to fill B.C. Place stadium to the roof – 15 times. The Sierra-Greenpeace-ForestEthicsDogwood gang, a sort of billionaire-bankrolled green Team America, has worked hard to promote the falsehood that “tar sands” oil is vastly worse than that nice fair-trade Alaska stuff. Their claims about acidity and abrasiveness of diluted bitumen didn’t hold up, and it’s still hotly contested whether the heavy oil in diluted bitumen would float, emulsify or sink in actual sea conditions. When the federal government announced a study to determine what spilled bitumen would do in North Coast waters, that too was attacked by the Green Party as a secret scheme to prop up Enbridge’s pipeline proposal. So it’s a scandal when you don’t know the answers, and it’s a scandal when you try to find them. Another question that gets little attention is whether it’s better for spilled oil to

This lack of crude oil spill response capability has existed the entire time, without a whisper of protest of media attention.

sink rather than wash up on beaches. Crude oil is, if you’ll pardon the expression, organic. Spills produce a huge spike in oil-eating bacteria that leads to an increase in fish populations at a certain stage. This was documented in a 1994 book called Degrees of Disaster, written by an expert who stayed on in Valdez for four years, long after the TV cameras and grandstanding politicians went home. Victoria-based Dogwood seized on a 2012 Nuka study done for the Haisla Nation at Kitimat, which found that in ocean conditions that are present more than half of the time, there would be no immediate way to respond to a spill at sea.  Dogwood’s “no tankers campaign director” hinted that this information was intentionally left out of the B.C. government study, and the media ate it up. No tankers? Better check again. Dogwood’s mission is clearly not to protect the B.C. coast from oil spills. If it were, they would be protesting the ongoing risk from Alaska tankers.

PLEASE RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER


letters Climate change not superstition Tom Fletcher concludes in his latest opinion piece, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ironic that as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;information ageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; accelerates, our society, overwhelmed by conflicting messages, slips back towards superstition.â&#x20AC;? He is doing his part to help that slip. He chooses to portray the overwhelming scientific consensus as either â&#x20AC;&#x153;superstitionâ&#x20AC;? or a â&#x20AC;&#x153;popularity contest.â&#x20AC;? The report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the result of hundreds of scientists reviewing thousands of scientific publications and millions of gigabytes of data to reach the conclusion that current climate change is mostly caused by human activity. Clearly this is not a matter of superstition nor is it very popular, even among the scientists who have reached this conclusion. I am sure they too would prefer to conclude that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;hiatusâ&#x20AC;? indicated the end of â&#x20AC;&#x153;global warmingâ&#x20AC;? if only the rest of the evidence didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell them otherwise. Being good scientists, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore all the other data showing melting ice, increasing ocean temperatures and rising sea levels etc. The denialists, including Tom Fletcher, will grasp at data such

as atmospheric temperatures and ignore the mountains of evidence confirming climate change. This issue can be explained if only the

denialists are willing to listen. The heat capacity of the ocean far exceeds that of the atmosphere. So, Mr. Fletcher would do well to decide

whether the Titanic will sink because of the hole in its hull rather than the leaky tap in his cabin. Neil Smith Mission

Child ID clinic

Envision Financial and the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) are partnering to offer a free Child Identification Day clinic on Friday, Oct. 25. The event runs from noon to 6 p.m. at Envision Financial’s new Highstreet branch located at unit F120 – 3122 Mt. Lehman Rd. Volunteers from the APD will be on hand to fingerprint children and provide them with their personalized child ID book. There will also be popcorn, candy and colouring for the children. Kelly Pater of APD’s community policing said the child ID book provides all the information that police will need should a child go missing. This includes the child’s photo, description, medical information, fingerprints, DNA, and a list of important phone numbers. “The last thing you need to worry about if your child goes missing is where to find this information, and with the child ID book, it’s all in one place,” Pater said. The clinic focuses on children 12 years and younger, including infants, and a parent or legal guardian must be present for the child to participate. None of the child’s personal information will be kept by Envision Financial or the Abbotsford Police.

Residents caught with fireworks will be subject to fines ranging from $200 to $1,000 and their fireworks will be confiscated. Fire officials are concerned by the extremely dry conditions in the Fraser Valley as Halloween and Diwali approach, stating that one firecracker or sparkler could easily start a massive brush fire.

The Central and Upper Fraser Valley Toy Run took place this past Sunday, and drew nearly 1,000 motorcyclists to local streets to help children less fortunate. The 27th annual event saw two groups of riders gathering in Mission and Chilliwack, then together in Abbotsford at the Ag-Rec Building. Organizers say 840 riders took part and collected $10,000 in cash, plus 1,000 toys were also donated.

Advocate wants animal shelter

Local business woman and dog enthusiast Diane Davies is tired of seeing Abbotsford’s stray animals shipped off to Chilliwack. And she wants the city to do something about it. Davies has been an outspoken advocate for dogs and animals for the past two decades. She has appeared before council on several occasions to voice concerns about the lack of a local, city-run animal shelter, the local dog ownership bylaw and other animal issues. “I would like to see Abbotsford have its own shelter. It’s a growing city. More animals are going to come in,” said Davies. In February 2011, the city came to an agreement with Chilliwack to house Abbotsford’s animals in the Chilliwack pound on Wolfe Road. Prior to that, local dogs were kept in Aldergrove, at Mainland Municipal Animal Control Services. That company ended its agreement with the city in early 2011, forcing the city to find a new location. Davies said it’s “ridiculous” that a city the size of Abbotsford is in this position and can’t take care of its own animals. “We need acreage and a city-run

shelter with someone with compassion on hand to take control.” While she is complimentary about the Chilliwack facility, saying they take good care of the animals, she still believes a local shelter, other than the SPCA, needs to be built. “It’s part of the city’s responsibilities,” she said. But Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman said there is no immediate plan to create an animal shelter. “We’re very satisfied with the contract we have in Chilliwack. It’s the best bang for the buck for the taxpayers.” Abbotsford is paying Chilliwack $62,400 annually ($5,200 per month). The new, five-year deal was signed on April 1, 2012. Banman said it is great value, compared to building and running a shelter in Abbotsford. “The mandate (from voters) was clear – ‘we don’t want to see an increase in taxes.’ They want us to be frugal with money.” Banman added the city looked into opening a shelter when he was first elected, “but it turned out to be incredibly expensive. We currently have no plans to make a change.” He said estimates came in between $500,000 and $1 million to create a shelter, not including the cost of staffing it year-round.

Dinner raises funds for seniors’ garden A dinner on Saturday, Oct. 26 will raise funds to create a new therapeutic garden for seniors living at Tabor Village in Abbotsford. Keynote speaker will be garden expert Brian Minter, who will share his expertise and passion for plants. The featured performers for the evening are the Heritage Singers. The event begins

at 5 p.m. at Central Heights Church, 1661 McCallum Rd. The three-course dinner is by donation (value is $25). The money raised goes toward Tabor Village’s fundraising campaign to create an outdoor garden designed to meet the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the seniors at Tabor Village. Minter and Rusty

Reimer, president of Rusty Design Service, have designed the garden. Most of the work will be done by volunteers, and most of the material will be donated. For more information and tickets, call the Tabor Home office at 604-859-8715, Bill at 604-723-8704 or email dlevitt@ taborvillage.com or bdyck@shaw.ca.

Purdy’s Chocolatier said YES to renewable natural gas At Purdy’s Chocolatier, they work as hard to reduce waste and emissions as they do to make decadent chocolates. So they signed up their Vancouver distribution centre for renewable natural gas, a carbon neutral* source of energy derived from local organic waste.

The school’s first principal, Dr. Angus MacKay, returned to Clayburn Middle for its anniversary celebration on Friday, explaining to students, staff and community members the process behind opening the school on Oct. 17, 2003. MacKay said that when the school began, staff talked about the type of environment they wanted to create for students and followed through on those plans. “I truly believe that’s what made the difference.” He said staff worked to put students first –  instituting a healthy canteen program, nocut athletic programs, daily physical education and inclusion of special education students. Today, Clayburn Middle has 600 students in Grades 6 to 8. The school assembly featured presentations by present and former staff, students groups, Supt. Kevin Godden, and members of the board of trustees, and performances by the school’s choir and drumline.

Jared Falk instructs online drum lessons from his company’s office in Matsqui Village, which are broadcast to users around the world. ALEX BUTLER Abbotsford News

World learns drums from Abbotsford teachers Drumeo focuses on providing students with top instructors online Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

T

hough Drumeo makes its home in the small community of Matsqui Village, its customers come from as far away as Estonia, Sweden, India and Brazil. Jared Falk, along with his business partner Rick Kettner, run Drumeo, a company that offers DVD-based music lessons and websites that feature free online lessons or memberships to lessons that are broadcast live daily. Falk, who grew up in Abbotsford, began drumming at 15 years old and started teaching his own students at 17. “From there, my goal was to be a rock star, like any drummer wants to be.” Instead of becoming a rock star, Falk now helps provides musical instruction to thousands of people around the world, the majority of whom are living outside of Canada. Falk said Drumeo took root over a decade ago. Now it has about 50,000 customers and its websites receive about 40,000 visitors a day. The company’s various YouTube channels have close to 200,000

subscribers and one channel alone has received about 45 million views. Falk went to high school at the Mennonite Educational Institute and “barely graduated,” before heading off to tour with a band in the United States. But once he hit the road, he realized he didn’t like being stuck in a van, and missed teaching. He returned to Abbotsford and started working on his family’s duck farm, and teaching 40 to 50 students how to play the drums. While teaching, Falk met Kettner, who had dropped out of high school in the ’90s to work at Internet startups, and had launched his own business at 16 years old. Falk, who had quit a summer job in 1998 to sell hockey cards online, said he and Kettner had always had the online “business bug,” and shared a love of drumming. They recorded a drumming video and uploaded it online, receiving about 12,000 downloads – a surprising amount in 2002. “This was before YouTube and Facebook… back when there wasn’t an easy way to watch videos online.” With the high level of on-

line interest, the two began to post videos for download – and people started buying them. Falk and Kettner began creating websites with video tutorials, discussion forums, and an online store where drummers could buy downloadable lesson packs. They quickly expanded into producing DVDs and other web-based prod-

The combination of the unique teaching style and the marketing ... it really caught on from there. Rick Kettner

ucts. As the demand for their products increased, the business began to grow with it. “The combination of the unique teaching style and the marketing … it really caught on from there.” Now, they run a variety of websites with free online video instruction, and sites where users pay a fee to subscribe to daily lessons broadcast live, with about 470 hours of instruction logged into the lesson library.

Falk teaches some lessons himself and relies on his staff and local Abbotsford talent – as well as from teachers from around the world, who broadcast directly to students from places such as L.A. or Germany. Drumeo has 12 full-time staff based in Abbotsford who work on web design, video editing and more. Though the success of their work is global, Falk said he owes the quality of their product to a skilled local staff, many of whom grew up in Abbotsford. Falk attributes some of the company’s success with timing, getting started in an online business as the Internet grew, but more importantly, “everyone who works here is super passionate about online education and music.” Falk and the staff place high importance on engaging with their legion of virtual students through the websites, social media and email. Some drummers will send in videos of themselves playing, asking for advice on their technique, and students ask questions online during live lessons, which instructors answer. Falk said that Drumeo is only successful as

long as the students keep becoming better drummers, and that is done through support and attention to their learning process. “The biggest key to being successful online is the relationships,” said Falk, adding that he recently heard from a student who began using their lessons in 2007 and now is on a national tour with a band. Though Falk said private instruction is always important for those looking how to drum, many people who live in rural areas or have busy schedules find online lessons useful. The large online community of Drumeo also caught the eye of drum companies. Falk has brought in artists such as Kenny Aronoff – who has played drums for Bon Jovi, John Fogerty, the Smashing Pumpkins and more – to run a free lesson from their studio, sponsored by Yamaha. Falk added that though people often think the company is based out of New York or L.A., he is committed to staying in Abbotsford, a community he loves. “I love the small-town vibe … my family has a huge history here.”

In recognition of the 90th anniversary of the drainage of Sumas Lake, The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford is calling for submissions for an upcoming exhibit. The work selected will form an exhibit titled “Drain: An Exhibition Organized by Young C o n t e m p o r a r i e s ,” which will be shown alongside the travelling exhibition “Clash: Conflict and its Consequences” from the National Gallery of Canada. These exhibits will run from Jan. 23 to March 30. “Drain” will include works that touch on themes of — but are not limited to — power, progress and environment. The concept of Drain is to visually consider the wider implications of a major undertaking like a mass drainage, and to create a dialogue around how such projects affect communities culturally, politically and environmentally, in historical and contemporary view.  Submissions must include: the Young Contemporaries of The Reach program membership ID number, a cover letter, an artist’s statement (maximum 250 words) and images in high-resolution JPG format. Submissions must be sent by Dec. 1 to Gabe Kirkley, special events and marketing assistant at The Reach. Artists will be notified of the selection of works by Dec. 15.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

In a two-hour drive, the only time I dropped the anchors was when one of Amsterdam’s kazillion cyclists cut in front of me. Keith Morgan

The BMWi electric car powered its way with ease around city streets and along picturesque Dutch canals.

KEITH MORGAN

The future is electric AMSTERDAM – BMW has joined the race for the electric car dollar. On the evidence of two days driving the funky-looking all-electric i3 through the narrow streets of old Amsterdam and alongside the picturesque canals of rural Holland, the German manufacturer may have a winner. For starters, it is simply great fun to drive. The lithium-ion battery, encased in an aluminum cage below the five-seater cabin, provides enough instant zap to the electric motor to propel the car smoothly to 100 klicks in less than eight seconds. Left the stopwatch

at home, but counting “one-and-two etc.” to count seconds, my lips barely mouthed “six” before the speedo leapt from 80 to 120 km/h while passing. It handles beautifully at any speed and hugs the road; thanks to the technology-laden aluminum platform, that gives it a very low centre of gravity. Turns on a Euro too, as we found during the many U-turns made on blocked streets. Of course, F1 take-offs will suck the battery dry somewhat more quickly but you need not be a snail in the so-called Comfort mode to achieve the advertised 160 kilometres range on a full

Birthplace of the truly green machines LEIPZIG, Germany: BMW believes there is a big future for wind power in its cars. No, not for the propulsion of the prestige brand’s models but the making of their sleek machines of the future. Long before visitors arrive at the auto manufacturer’s new hi-tech factory in this economically depressed region of what was once communist East Germany, they greeted with a wave from four giant wind turbines. Those metal giants power the production of the impressive five-seater BMW i3, test driven today in Driveway. The i3 models now roll silently off the production line; silently, not just because it’s an all-electric vehicle but also because the entire manufacturing process rarely rises above a whisper. The BMW i3 is the first of the manufacturer’s projects for which the environmental sustainability objectives were determinedly set at the same high standards as the economic goals applied to the manufacturing process. Next year, it will be joined by the i8, which looks every inch a super-sports car. To achieve those lofty dual goals, the BMW Group retains close control over the complete production process from the carbon fibre production, which starts in a hydroelectric powered plant in Moses Lake, Wa.

Entire noisy and stinky processes associated with manufacturing in steel are gone. Robots screw and bond the important parts together and send the shells on their way, suspended form an overhead rail. Happy workers can actually hear each other chat down on the factory floor, bathed in sunlight and breathing freely courtesy of an efficient hi-tech ventilation system. Amazingly, the energy used is 50 percent of that required to turn out a conventional car and 70 percent less water is used. My group roamed around looking for waste, which turned out to be a waste (of time) in itself. The bits and bats and ‘wasted’ trim are gathered up and recycled for use elsewhere along the production line. BMW even boasts the lithium ion batteries that will power each car’s motor will outlive the individual car’s life. They can be used as storage batteries when the car is put out to pasture, sorry, recycled. If one of the eight modules should fail then a replacement easily drops in rather than there be a need for an entire battery replacement. Body parts again drop into place with the minimum of fuss and cost. They say the cost of a fix will likely mirror that of putting a BMW 1-series back on the road after a similar crash.

VERDICT The standard features list is strong, including keyless entry, push button start, Bluetooth and USB connectivity for $15,995. If you equip the base model with air conditioning and automatic transmission, the price jumps to $18,795. The middle GS trim is the place most Canadians will shop and the range is from $19,695-$22,595 for things like heated seats, leather steering wheel, rain sensing wipers and more. The top GT with the larger engine, 18-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, Bose stereo and navigation, ranges from $25,855-$$29,855. As you can see, the price can ratchet up rather quickly.

The upside is that this is a car that can provide solid, fun to drive transportation, wrapped in a stylish package. Higher-end models feel like a much more expensive car, with qualities not found previously in this class of car. So, the price might be justified. I truly believe that Mazda is onto something.

Best classic cars for ten grand or less

1983 Porsche 944

1966 Ford Bronco

1976 Chevrolet Corvette

1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa coupe

1985 Ford Mustang

By Rob Sass

Most of the focus on the collector car world comes from televised auctions where six-figure cars are the norm, so it’s easy to conclude that the average person is priced out of the collector car world. But the fact of the matter is there are still plenty of interesting collectible cars out there for under 10 grand. Granted, they tend to be from the 1970s and 1980s rather than the 1950s or 1960s, but they’re all fun to drive and relatively easy to live with. Here are five of our favorites: 1985-93 FORD MUSTANG: The third generation or “Fox” platform Mustang brought affordable V-8 muscle back to the masses. Although it was introduced in 1979, better breathing cylinder heads and a re-designed four-barrel carburetor in 1985 pushed horsepower above 200 for the first time since the early 1970s. The relatively light and simple design of the car made the best use of the newfound ponies. While the oldest are just under 30 years old, the collector world is starting to wake up. Still, nice 5.0-liter V-8 examples of all three body styles (coupe, hatchback and convertible) are still available in LX and GT trim for 10 grand or less. 1966-77 FORD BRONCO: The Bronco pushes the 10 grand budget the most and you’ll have to look hard to find an unrusted or unmodified original Bronco in this price range, but they do occasionally lurk on Craigslist. Competition for the likes of the International Harvester Scout, early Broncos look right in the way that early Land Rovers do and collectors have taken a big shine to them lately. Buy now. 196569 CHEVROLET CORVAIR CORSA COUPE: The poor Corvair. Shunned by Chevy fans and import fans alike, it really is a poor-man’s Porsche, with styling on the second generation cars as nice as anything to come out of Germany, Italy or the U.S. at that time. Corvairs pioneered the use of turbocharging, and later cars could be made to handle quite well with some relatively inexpensive modifications, in spite of what Ralph Nader said. Incidentally, the 50th anniversary of the book “Unsafe at Any Speed” is continued on page 23

Ford Fusion 2010 to 2012

‘‘

Six standard airbags helped the Fusion attain a top five-star crash-test rating.

’’

Bob McHugh

Amid lingering global financial turmoil, recession recovery was already in high-gear at Ford, with an over a 40 per cent yearover-year sales gain that made Ford the top-selling automaker in Canada, in 2009. It was also the year it launched an all-new 2010 model year version of its popular mid-sized family car, the Ford Fusion. The 2010 Fusion was offered in SE and SEL trim levels with a choice of a 2.5-litre I4 or a 3.0-litre V6 engines and a 3.5-litre V6 powered an

Thanks to their special compound, winter tires offer the elasticity required to ensure maximum grip throughout the cold season, regardless of the road conditions. Summer tires can become hard when the temperatures fall below 7 degrees Celsius, thereby losing the flexibility needed to build up sufficient grip for braking, starting off, and cornering. Because of their greater suppleness in the cold, winter tires are able to interlock with the asphalt, snow, and ice, even at lower temperatures.

all-new Fusion Sport model with all-wheel-drive. Ford also introduced its first hybrid edition of Fusion with an Atkinson cycle version of the 2.5-litre engine and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (e-CVT). The hybrid’s battery is a nickel-metal hydride type that’s smaller and lighter than competitors and its temperature is controlled by air extracted from the passenger cabin. Claimed city/highway fuel consumption is a very impressive 4.6/5.4 L/100km. Fuel consumption ratings for the other Fusion engines are as follows; 9.4/6.4 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 2.5-litre; 11.1/7.3 (city/highway) for the 3.0-litre V6 models; and 12.7/8.3 (city/highway) for the 3.5-litre with all-wheel drive. A new optional safety feature on the 2010 Fusion (well worth having) was a Blind Spot system that comes with Cross Traffic Alert, which was a unique to Ford system. Radar sensors in the rear side quarter panels can detect a moving object within a 20 metre (65-ft) range on either side. Great to have when vision is restricted (as it often is) when backing out of a parking stall. This generation is also a quieter Fusion. Changes to reduce cabin noise levels include an acoustic windshield, thicker front-door glass, new hood insulators, additional sound deadening in the trunk and a new headliner in the cabin that’s made with an absorption material. An air filter that removes respiratory irritants and toxins from entering the cabin was also a new standard feature of Fusion. A new standard innovation was a fuel filler system called EasyFuel. Not only does it eliminate the need to remove a gas cap when filling up, it reduces evaporative emissions. You simply push the fuel-pump nozzle into a gas tank

receptacle and it automatically seals shut when removed. Six standard airbags helped the Fusion attain a top five-star crash-test rating. If an air bag is deployed, Fusion also has a unique emergency alert system that flashes the hazard warning lights and sounds the horn, to attract attention. An electronic stability-control system with a brake-activated traction control system was a new standard safety feature. The MyKey security system was made a standard feature on the 2011 Fusion, a spotter mirror, to help eliminate blind spots, was incorporated in the door mirrors and the SE edition got standard automatic headlights. No significant changes were made for 2012. Good reliability, owner satisfaction and low cost of repair ratings helped the 2012 Ford Fusion get a “Recommend” rating from Consumer Reports. Ford Fusion buyers also benefit from having a good supply of them on the market and used prices tend to be reasonable. A potentially great value pre-owned purchase. Price Check - 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion (October 2013) Year Edition Expect to Pay Today 2010 SEL $11,000 to $14,000 2011 SEL $13,000 to $16,000 2012 SEL $16,000 to $20,000 Prices vary depending on a used vehicle’s condition, mileage, usage and history. A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase. Recalls on the 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion: 2010 - A problem with the manual recliner mechanisms on the front seats may cause additional movement of the seat back. Dealers will replace the seat recliner mechanisms. 2010 - A park pawl in the automatic transmission may not fully engage when shifted into “Park” and this could allow the vehicle to roll on an incline, if the park brake is not activated. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the park rod guide retention pin. 2010/2011- The lug nuts on vehicles equipped with 17 inch steel wheels may loosen and this could result in wheel separation. Dealers will replace the lug nuts on all four wheels, inspect the rear brake rotors and replace them as necessary.

Cool, Drives-U-Crazy Erratic Drivers lowpriced collector The cars HONDA WAY CELEBRATES from An early morning drive from Kelowna to Vancouver is normally a pleasurable experience. But a recent a jaunt was made much less so by an erratic driver, whose actions required all fellow travellers to watch his antics with great care and attention. The young guy at the wheel of a late model Honda CR-V constantly changed speed, below and

All have one thing in common — they’re air cooled and the engine is in the back. Water-cooled front-engine Porsches have yet to see the love from collectors, and we think that the 944 is one of the best of the bunch.  A derivative of the nicely balanced but underpowered 924, the fender bulges and smoother and more powerful balance shaft-equipped twincam four was just was Dr. Porsche ordered to make the 944 a credible performance car.

TPMS sensor: A symbol that saves lives A tire’s number one enemy isn’t road hazards; it’s under-inflation. Most drivers know low tire pressure can lead to skidding, hydroplaning and blow outs, even losing control of a vehicle. Yet most people aren’t aware of a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in their vehicle and they don’t recognize the low tire pressure light that could save their life. According to Transport Canada, a recent study

indicated that about 50% of the vehicles on the road in Canada have at least one tire that is either over or under-inflated by more than 10%. In fact, 10% of all vehicles surveyed had at least one tire underinflated by 20%. This represents a real safety issue. Canada Safety Council states that under-inflation is the leading cause of tire failure. In the U.S., the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration

estimates 660 people per year are killed as a result of under-inflated tires. Low tire pressure has a big impact on road safety. Since you can’t always tell if a tire’s pressure is low just by looking at it, tire pressure monitoring systems were created to warn drivers when this happens. The symbol, which illuminates on the dashboard, appears like a treaded horseshoe surrounding an exclamation mark.

“TPMS is such an important safety feature, but we’re finding a lot of drivers don’t know what TPMS is and there is skepticism about its value,” says Carey Hull, director of retail products, Kal Tire. “Just like seatbelts and air bags, TPMS can save lives. We want to help Canadians understand TPMS, what the warning light looks like and what to do when they see the symbol light up on their dashboard.”

A tire loses its ability to manage the vehicle’s weight when pressure drops as little as five per cent. As a result, steering, braking and suspension can suffer. If the TPMS senses your tire is under-inflated by 25 per cent or more below the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended air pressure, the TPMS symbol illuminates on your dashboard. This is a warning to pull over and check your tire pressure. Once checked, if the tires all appear normal, proceed with caution to a tire service centre to have them properly inspected. “Ideally, everyone would check their tire pressure monthly, long before it’s

ever under-inflated by 25 per cent, because at that point, you could be in danger,” says Hull. “Ideally drivers would never see the TPMS symbol illuminate on their dashboard, but if they do,

we want them to be able to respond appropriately.” Starting in 2007, TPMS became a legislated feature on all passenger vehicles sold in the United States, the first country to mandate TPMS. Today, nearly 70 per cent of new vehicles sold in Canada are TPMS-equipped, but the

feature isn’t mandated here. Schrader International, the leading supplier of TPMS sensors, valves, tools and training, predicts that over the next decade, TPMS will be a standard safety feature on all vehicles globally. “Initially, there was a lot of skepticism from people in the US as well,” says Trevor Potter, vice president sales and marketing, North America, Schrader International. “Drivers didn’t yet understand the value of having a system that automatically detects low tire pressure, but that’s changed in the last few years. In the US, more and more people know what it is now, and they appreciate it.”

Tyler Wakita, Leo Goldberg and Mitchell Wolfe were greedy for gold at the B.C. Judo Championships last weekend. The trio from the host Abbotsford Judo Club each battled their way to a pair of first-place finishes at the tournament, which drew 280 athletes from across the province to the Ag-Rec Building. Wakita is the highest-ranking male judoka at the local club as of this fall, after Brandon Jobb, who represents Canada internationally, moved to Montreal to train at the national training centre. He lived up to that billing, winning both the junior and senior categories in the under-81 kilogram division. “His technique is getting so good,”

noted Tokue Suda, the Abby club’s head instructor. “He’s improving quite a bit.” Two of the club’s young up-andcomers, Leo Goldberg and Mitchell Wolfe, both won gold medals in the U16 and U18 age groups. Goldberg dominated at -55 kg, while Wolfe mirrored his performance at -60 kg. “Leo and Mitchell are going to be the next generation of champions from our club,” Suda asserted. Wakita, Wolfe and Goldberg were among a group of 36 podium finishers from the host club, including nine other gold medalists. Austin Edwardson, Kevin Buitendyk, Shane Fowlstone, Claire Blyth, Thane Timmerman, Karissa Comeau, Greg Laslo, Alex Lafonde and Chris Cryer also won their respective categories. For a complete list of local medalists, visit abbynews.com.

Falcons (Saturday, 6 p.m.). This is the third annual edition of the Honda Way tourney, but the first year that the women’s team has been involved. Head coach Al Tuchscherer said it’s a positive for his squad. “It’s fantastic to get some CIS games at home, and to put it under the Honda Way umbrella is neat,” he said. “It’s something we can build on. I think it can become a cool annual thing for us.”

Schmidt summoned by Team Canada

Sophie Schmidt of Abbotsford has been named to the Canadian senior women’s soccer team’s roster for an international friendly vs. South Korea in Edmonton next Wednesday, Oct. 30. Schmidt, a 25-yearold midfielder, is one of 13 players on the roster who were part of Canada’s bronze medal-winning side at the 2012 London Olympics. The game will be televised nationally on Sportsnet One at 6 p.m. Pacific time. Canada has a 3-1 alltime record vs. South Korea, but lost their last meeting, falling 3-1 at the Yongchuan Cup International Women’s Football Tournament in January. “South Korea will be a tough test for us,” head coach John Herdman said. “Our 1:3 lost to them in January this year and their recent win over Japan has shown we will need to be on our game to get a result while still developing our new playing models.”

Big weekend for Cascades soccer

Women face Alberta in playoffs, while men await TWU results likely wouldn't want to switch places with Alan Errington, his counterpart with the UFV men's soccer squad, in light of what he must endure this week.

The Cascades men wrapped up their regular season schedule last weekend with a pair of incredibly clutch victories –  2-1 over the Calgary Dinos on Friday and 4-1 over the Lethbridge Pronghorns on Saturday – to improve to 6-7-1 for 19 points, good for third place in the Pacific Division of Canada West. The thing is, the fourth-place Trinity Western Spartans (4-62, 14 points) still have two games remaining –  they take on Calgary and Lethbridge on the road this weekend, and could overtake UFV for the final Pacific Division playoff berth if they win both. It's a gut-wrenching thing when your team doesn't control its own fate, but Errington is taking a philosophical approach. "Expect the worst, hope for the best," he said with a chuckle. "You can worry and do all the permutations, but at the end of the day . . . the league will decide itself. "We train this week, we just keep plodding on, and we wait and see what happens." That said, Errington admitted it's easy to go back and rue games where his team dropped points during the season. In particular, a 1-1 draw vs. UNBC on Sept. 29 (a game in which UFV fired 30 shots to the T-Wolves' six) and a 1-0 road loss to the Winnipeg Wesmen on Sept. 12 stand out. "It's disappointing, because we've had a good season inasmuch as we played quite well in a lot of the games," he said, alluding to a 1-0 win over the defending national champs from UBC on Sept. 8. "But we've really had problems scoring goals this year. "We've created lots of chances, they're just not going in." As for the UFV women, Giesbrecht said his team has to be mentally prepared to handle Alberta's speedy strikers, and stressed the importance of a good start to the game. "We have to start with more intention rather than hope," he said. "We probably played our worst game of the year out there, and we can get some redemption by giving a good account of ourselves a putting them under a lot of pressure."

Falcon footballers topple Giants

Q A blowout win by the Abbotsford Falcons’ junior bantam Black squad highlighted the weekend in community football action. JB Black blasted the Chilliwack Giants 58-0, with huge games from Jordan Townrow, Tyson Reid, Samwel Uko and Ezra Garcia-Landa, and the defence accounted for four touchdowns. The Abby atoms beat Chilliwack White 26-8. Mikalya Trolland and J.T. Simms led a terrific blocking performance on offence, paving the way for Ercy Avul (2), Tyson Kelly and Taejshon Catlin to find the end zone. Dallas Standcombe, Kayden Sasorith-Johnston and Jayden Thind led the defence. The junior bantam White squad dropped a 26-22 decision to the North Langley Bears, despite a strong defensive performance and TDs by Dion Kelly and Zach Langfield.

Q The W.J. Mouat Hawks defeated the Mission Roadrunners 54-12 in junior football action behind another huge outing from Nelson Lokombo. The Hawks’ running back rushed 14 times for 213 yards and two touchdowns, with great blocking from the offensive line. Dion Pellerin, Cole Barker, Carson Setter  and Cameron Tomm also rushed for TDs, while Pellerin added two interceptions on defence.  The defensive backfield of Jacob Solano, Matt Connor, and Elijah Falconer also excelled.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she’s gone or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.

Lure of the rings

Abbotsford’s Grand Slam event takes on added significance with Olympics approaching With the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia on the horizon, this year’s Masters Grand Slam event takes on added importance beyond just the money. The $200,000 cashspiel, which runs Oct. 29 to Nov. 3 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, features a total of 30 men’s and women’s teams from 13 different nations, some of whom have already been selected by their country’s federation to represent them in the OIympics. Among the international standouts are reigning men’s world champion Niklas Edin of Sweden; 2010 Olympic silver medalist Thomas Ulsrud; 2013 women’s world champ Eve Muirhead of Scotland; and 2010 Olympic bronze medalist Bingyu Wang of China. Canada will also be extremely well-represented, as all of the

rinks who have pre-qualified for the Canadian Olympic trials Dec. 1-8 in Winnipeg – six men’s and six women’s teams – will be at the Masters. That group includes 2010 Olympic gold medalist Kevin Martin along with Glenn Howard, Jeff Stoughton, Kevin Koe, Mike McEwen and John Epping on the men’s side, and defending Scotties Tournament of Hearts champ Rachel Homan, Jennifer Jones, Heather Nedohin, Stefanie Lawton, Sherry Middaugh and Chelsea Carey on the women’s side. “We have absolutely everybody there that’s going to have a chance to go to the Olympics or has already qualified,” noted Pierre Charette, president of the World Competitive Curlers Association. “That’s pretty cool.” Howard said the format of this year’s Masters is great because of the opportunity to play other countries and their representa-

Sportsnet has helped raise profile of Grand Slam of Curling By Perry Lefko

Sportsnet slides into a second season owning and operating the Grand Slam of Curling, a series of four premier cashspiel events that feature the most-lucrative purses and bonus money on the World Curling Tour. The first event in that series is the Masters, which runs Oct. 29 to Nov. 3 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre and features a prize purse of $200,000. SERIES FORMAT Following the Masters, the remaining men’s Grand Slam events continue with the Canadian Open (Nov. 13-17 in Medicine Hat, Alta.), the National (March 12-16 in Fort McMurray,

Alta.), and the Players’ Championship (April 15-20 in Summerside, PEI). For the second consecutive year, Sportsnet is offering a $1 million bonus for any men’s team that sweeps all four Slams. If there is no sweep, the team with the most points collects a $50,000 bonus, the runner-up $30,000 and third-place team $20,000. If a women’s team sweeps the Masters and Players’ Championship they will collect $100,000. If there is no sweep, the top team will collect a $12,500 bonus, the runnerup $7,500 and the third-place finisher $5,000. TV COVERAGE Through the involvement of Sportsnet and a sublicensing agreement with the CBC, the

Grand Slam events receive blanket television coverage and support on multiple platforms. Sportsnet realized the value of curling as a sport embraced by Canadians of all ages. When the Slams faced an uncertain future, Rogers entered into a partnership with the World Competitive Curlers Association in August 2012 to own and operate the tournaments and provide a greater commitment, both in terms of money and overall multi-platform production. “In Abbotsford, all the top teams will be shown at least once during a week,” said Pierre Charette, president of the World Competitive Curlers Association. “They might play three or four TV games if they through to the

playoffs. A lot of these teams have deals with their sponsors that every time they’re on TV they get a bonus.” WOMEN ON BOARD Though the Slams began in 2001, it was only last year when Sportsnet came aboard that women were given a chance to play in the Masters. Ontario’s Sherry Middaugh said it was important for the women to be included in the Masters because it allowed them to gain exposure. “When you have a Slam event you’re getting the best of the best,” she noted. “It’s not just another bonspiel. You’re playing the top teams in the world.”

OCTOBER 29 - NOVEMBER 3

It’s a great time to be a curling fan in Abbotsford Can Canada regain its preeminence in the sport? Rock Talk

If you happen to be, or would like to be, a curling aficionado then you are in the right place at the right time. Of course everyone knows that Canada has the best curlers (and hockey players) on the planet – right? Au contraire mon frere! (Yes, I am completely bilingual). Jim Let us not forget that the current world titles are held by Sweden’s Niklas Edin and Scotland’s Eve Muirhead. Actually it is a surprising and somewhat mortifying fact that the Canadian women haven’t won the Worlds since Jennifer Jones in 2008. It would appear, therefore, that unlike the “World Series” or the NFL “World Championship”, if you actually play against other countries you might not win. The same theory holds true if you are holding a curling bonspiel with a world-class

field. Fortunately the Masters Grand Slam of Curling will be following this formula at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3. The elite field will feature 30 rinks vying for $200,000 in prize money. In addition to last year’s world champions, teams from China, Denmark, the U.S., Korea, Germany, Switzerland and Norway will be in attendance. Canada will counter with names like Martin, Stoughton and Howard on the men’s side with Homan, Jones, Nedohin, et al for the women. Hopefully this event, if well attended, will lead to future world-class events.

Having the Masters in town a thrill for local club Jennifer Jones, the 2008 world champ, will be among the skips chasing the Masters title in Abbotsford next week.

Dan Kinvig Abbotsford News With the Masters Grand Slam of Curling just around the corner, the excitement is palpable at the Abbotsford Curling Club. “It’s incredibly cool,” said Ken MacDonald, general manager of the local club. “We’ve got a lot of people who are volunteering, and a lot of people saying they’re going over to watch. “They know that it’s the best event in the world, other than the Olympics, in this coming year, because the men and women are both here and all the teams are invited

that are also going to be showing up at the Olympics.” The Abby club is taking an active role with the Grand Slam event – they’re helping to promote it throughout the Lower Mainland curling community, and MacDonald and Debbie Sand are spearheading the organization of volunteers. A small army of 100 volunteers is needed to make the bonspiel truly hum, and MacDonald said they still have room for more helpers. The club is also running a membership drive in conjunction with the Masters, and will have a booth set up at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.

Anil Mungal / Grand Slam of Curling MacDonald is hopeful that having a high-profile Grand Slam event will help boost interest in curling locally, and he’s passionate about seeing the sport cross cultural boundaries. “It’s not a traditional sport for Indo-Canadians, it’s not a traditional sport for Africans,” he noted. “But we’re getting both of those groups coming out here (to the club) and having a lot of fun. “Our easiest thing for people to take advantage of is Wednesday nights, when we have space for novices and people who want to learn to curl in a league environment.” Other opportunities afforded to the local

Designing with natural gas By Kerry Vital

Natural gas is no longer needed exclusively by professional chefs and high-end homes. Homeowners are increasingly choosing natural gas in their kitchens, living spaces and even outdoors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot more people are choosing natural gas these days, especially in the kitchen,â&#x20AC;? says Stephanie Malhas, interior designer

Natural gas can be used in many rooms in your home, including the kitchen, living room and even outside.

Fall in love with autumn decor trends Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to be excited about when it comes to decorating for the season. By Melissa Smalley

Among the challenges that Kerr Construction ran into while building this Vancouver home was a long permit process, noise restrictions and having to adhere to commercial fire codes due to it being located beside a commercial building. Photo submitted by Kerr Construction

Getting rid of the commute in Vancouver Kerr Construction helps Vancouver homeowner see his vision come to life. By Kerry Vital Imagine waking up in the morning and walking next door to work. Sounds like a dream for those who commute every morning and evening. That dream came true for one Vancouver homeowner, with the help of Kerr Construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful home,â&#x20AC;? says Doug Kerr, founder of Kerr Construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the aspects of the house that I think turned out really

well was that it looks and feels like a home even though it sits on top of a parking structure beside a commercial building. With the landscaping, the green wall and the exterior ďŹ nishes it feels like a home and yet still belongs in the environment with its commercial surroundings.â&#x20AC;? Because of the regulations governing commercial sites, it took a year to get approval from the City of Vancouver, and the home had to match commercial ďŹ re codes due to its location. It was also built using steel construction in order to ďŹ t in with the city regulations, as wood framing is not allowed. The noise from the existing commercial space was one of the considerations when constructing the home, as well as the space

constraints. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to be mindful of the existing active commercial businesses on site and had to keep the noise contained and the site tidy and orderly,â&#x20AC;? Kerr says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Space was tight and anything heavy has to be craned in as there was not vehicle access to the rooftop patio where the home was built.â&#x20AC;? The shape of the home was determined by the patio that was already in place, while the exterior ďŹ nishes were chosen to complement the commercial building next door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The existing patio we built on was not

As the weather cools and we ďŹ nd ourselves spending the majority of our time indoors, you may be feeling the urge to spruce up your home with some new decor or a little makeover. When it comes to picking out the proper colours, patterns and styles for your home, this fall there is plenty to be excited about, according to designer Joan Walker, owner of The Curtain Call Drapery & Decorating Co. Similar to previous seasons, wallpaper is still a popular choice for homes, and choosing a print with graphics and texture helps to ďŹ ll any room with subtle warmth. This year, fabrics for chairs, cushions and other such items are a little more bold, with orange and blue hues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After years of natural texture, prints are creeping back in with bold graphics and embroidery,â&#x20AC;? Walker explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This can add the perfect pop to any

Home built on commercial building site but looks like it’s always been there “ from page C1 square,” says Kerr. “So the home had to be designed to fit the irregular shape.” The 52-inch-wide pivoting front door suits the commercial space, but also showcases the warmth of the home. Inside, the kitchen island counter and recessed ceiling above match the shape of the home, lending a modern touch to the space. The homeowner, an older gentleman, now has several features that will help as he ages. Among them is a convenience kitchen on the second floor to ensure that he can entertain on his deck without having to go up and down the stairs to the main kitchen. There are also flush transitions on the floor in case a wheelchair is needed in the future. Smart home automation is included throughout, making it easy for the homeowner to keep connected. “My favourite part of the home is the floating wall beside the open staircase,” Kerr says. “It was such an engineering feat to make an eightfoot-high wall solid without being attached at the top or sides. It provides the definition of space without blocking out all the light from the skylights in the stairwell as well as adds a little mystery of how it was constructed.” The view from the home is spectacular, so the exterior deck was constructed to maximize the homeowner’s view, enhanced by the large windows and skylights. Among the interesting features of the home is a textured green wall above the entrance to the parking garage below the home. The greenery already surrounding the home was kept, with new plants added as well. Now, the home looks like it was always there. “The homeowner was very involved in the day-to-day decisions of the home that took just over a year to build,” Kerr says. “He had a vision of how he wanted it to look and how it would function. It really is his vision. Our job was just to figure out how it could be built.” Now the homeowner can enjoy his new home without having to worry about commuting, and he has plenty of space to entertain or relax. “He loves the way the simple modern interior of the home showcases his art collection and his favourite Fin Yule furniture made in his Danish homeland,” says Kerr.

The green wall above the entrance to the parking garage, left, provides visual interest. Among the features in the home is an eight-foot-high floating wall, below, and tons of natural light in the kitchen, below left, and bathroom, above. Photos submitted by Kerr Construction

Decorating for the season “ from page C1 room, especially in a modern design. And we’re not just seeing a single colour any more as an accent.” If you’re in the market for some new furniture, Walker said the latest trend is leaning towards a more refined, ‘glam-rustic’ look to pieces that are on the lighter side, with fine features and tapered, slim legs. “Overall, it’s a little more sophisticated, but at the same time exuding a casual glamour and relaxed look,” she said. Natural wood finishes are still a popular choice – especially in coffee tables, which are often placed in groupings at different heights for a tapered look. “These pieces are not only multifunctional, but they create a dimension of a square centre of a room.” Other styles of look out for this season include designs with hints of metallic and luxury accent fabrics, including velvet and faux fur, as well as the ever-popular tribal motifs and animal prints. If it’s the flooring in your home that needs a little

attention this fall, a popular choice, according to Dora Belyk of Surfside Flooring, is vinyl wood plank and tile. “It is durable and has great design detail that looks very similar to real hardwood or tile,” Belyk said. For those homeowners who enjoy the challenge of DIY (do it yourself), these vinyl-flooring products are now available in a high-quality self-adhesive format to make the job easier than ever. If you prefer to leave it up to the experts, however, Surfside has a team of professional installers on hand to get the job done. Whether you’re just looking to add a splash of colour and style to your home, or you want to embark on a complete design renovation, seeking out the advice and expertise of a design professional will help save you time and stress and will ensure you have a finished product you will love.

Among the trends you’ll find for fall are brightly coloured accessories such as pillows, left, and richly coloured textiles, above. Tribal motifs and metallics are also on-trend for fall, right.

at Sarah Gallop Design Inc. (SGDI). “People like the quality and evenness of cooking with a natural gas cooktop.” Natural gas appliances can be found in many styles, including traditional free-standing ranges, built-in ranges, professional-looking cooktops and single or double wall ovens. “It’s a more professional kind of cooking,” says Sarah Gallop of SGDI. It’s also faster. FortisBC notes that natural gas cooktops heat up instantly and provide

precise temperature control. Natural gas ovens are naturally convection ovens, circulating air continuously around your food and ensuring that it cooks or bakes evenly. But it’s not just the kitchen that can benefit from a natural gas makeover. Outdoor spaces and living areas are also tops on the list. “Everybody likes an outdoor firepit now,” says Susanne Doise of Sensitive Design Inc. “You want to create an outdoor space that you can use for three seasons of the year.” When it comes to that outdoor space, you have many more options than just the firepit.

Abbotsford News Thursday, October 24, 2013 Doise says she’s recently designed entire outdoor kitchens, which can be easily connected to your home’s natural gas supply. She and Gallop also note the increase in people installing patio heaters so they don’t have to head inside as soon as it starts getting a bit chilly. “It’s kind of like camping in your own backyard,” says Gallop. “You get the informality of outdoor space with the convenience of natural gas.” And convenient it is. Natural gas is available at the push of a button, so you no longer need to wait for your fireplace or cooktop to heat up or worry about running out of propane for your outdoor barbecue. It’s also more energy-efficient for space and water heating, saving you money on your heating bills. FortisBC offers an online energy calculator that will help you compare the cost of fuel sources and their energy efficiency, demonstrating that natural gas is the most affordable choice for homeowners. Find it at www.fortisbc.com/energycalculator. FortisBC natural gas customers are continuing to benefit from some of the lowest prices in a decade. As of Oct. 1, customers will see a decrease for the cost of natural gas to just over $3 per gigajoule. More information can be found at www.fortisbc.

Invoice Overload: This is what happens when you get a ‘ball-park estimate’ or are charged for ‘time & material’ and the electrician gets paid more the longer he takes to complete the job. At Blue Crest Electric we take exception to this practice. We show you the guaranteed exact amount you’ll pay before the project begins. In most cases we will even provide several cost options so you can choose what is right for your budget.

Don’t have the parts: Other electricians do not stock their trucks like we do. This usually results in 2, 3 or even 4 trips before your problem is fixed and is all added to the time charged on your invoice. Blue Crest Electric trucks are stocked with more parts so we can fix your problem the first time.

Appointments:

Most electricians don’t make actual appointments. Instead, they say something like, “I’ll be there Tuesday” or “some time next week”. Meanwhile you waste a lot of time waiting, wondering if you should risk going out in case he should show up. When you call Blue Crest Electric for an appointment, we arrange for our actual arrival time so you can go about your day with the least amount of inconvenience, and we keep our appointments. Guaranteed.

Guarantees: Ask other electricians if they guarantee their work, and for how long, and you’re likely to get a blank stare or you should be informed of their ‘concrete guarantee’ which lasts as long as they are standing on your concrete driveway. At Blue Crest Electric, your satisfaction is 111% guar guaranteed. If you’re unhappy with our work for any reason, we’ll redo it. Free. We want you to be more tthan just 100% satisfied. We want you to tell your friends good things about us.

Glitter reigns supreme for the winter holidays By Kerry Vital The winter holidays are fast approaching, and you’ve probably already seen the first sprinklings of snowflakes and reindeer in stores. It’s never too early to start thinking about what you’d like to include in your holiday decor plans. “Traditional colours are being used in a new way,” says Vickie Maxwell, media coordinator for Bouclair Homes. “Red is mixed with gold and black, giving it a strong, glamourous feel to a very traditional holiday colour.” Red, gold and green is usually what comes to mind when Christmas is discussed, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick with those traditional colours. Bouclair is moving beyond that this year with collections that feature teal, silver and white. Keeping your own style in mind will make for a far better look than trying to stick with something that’s not your style. Sparkle has always been an integral part of the holidays for some, and you’ll find plenty of options in stores. “Emerging trends for holiday decor is anything that sparkles and mixing contrasting elements like earthy wood and metallic accents together,” says Pottery Barn spokesperson Kendra Stewart. “Pair big wooden candle pillars with shiny mercury glass and earthy ceramics for a contrast of rustic and luxe elements to create a casual yet festive look for the season.” Pottery Barn is updating some of the traditional holiday items this year, including glittery reindeer and sequined woodland creatures. “The holidays are all about creating an inviting space to

entertain and celebrate the season, and I love the tradition of decorating with my nostalgic pieces and pairing them with new seasonal updates,” says Stewart. “This year, bring a little warmth and sparkle to every room with accents of mercury glass and a chunky knit pillow or faux fur throw.” The holidays can also be a great time to try out some do-it-yourself ideas. Cutting out snowflakes from folded paper is a time-honoured tradition, stemming from elementary school experiences for many. Setting your kids free with the crayons and glitter makes for an easy afternoon craft project. Another great idea is to gather some pine cones from your local park and hanging them up with some ribbon. For a little extra touch, try spray-painting them and rolling them in glitter before hanging them. You can also find a new use for some of the tree ornaments that you don’t want to put on the tree. Filling a glass bowl or vase with them and using it as a centrepiece adds some sparkle and colour to a holiday table. You can also do this with pieces of candy or fruit, or jingle bells from a craft store. Strings of lights are also a great way to decorate for the season, no matter which holiday you celebrate. Running them along a fireplace mantel or inside a window frame will lend some more sparkle to your space. Or, try wrapping them up the banister of your stairs, accented with some tinsel garland. Decorating for the holidays is all a matter of individual style, whether you want to go all-out with the lights and wreathes or just decorate a tree for you and your family to enjoy.

A lesson learned in Japan results in reduced energy bills in British Columbia for the Timmer family Submitted by BC Hydro

Mark Timmer and his wife Tina learned a lot from their time living in Japan. When they returned home, they knew they needed to re-evaluate their priorities when it came to energy efficiency. With the help of the LiveSmart BC program, a partnership between BC Hydro Power Smart, FortisBC and the Province of British Columbia, the Timmers have been able to take advantage of valuable rebates to homeowners.

Mark Timmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Tina, is of Japanese descent, but until a couple of years ago, their four children had only experienced life in Canada. To make sure they got to know their Japanese heritage, the Timmers sold their house in Victoria in 2009, Timmer took a self-funded year away from his job, and the whole family moved into a rented house in Yokohama. That year proved to be educational in more ways than Timmer expected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our monthly electricity bills were huge in Japan,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;nor were they low in our old house in Canada. When we returned in 2010, we knew we needed to re-evaluate our priorities. We rented for a year while we looked for a house to buy. Location was important, and size â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we have four kids! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but just as important, we wanted energy efďŹ ciency.â&#x20AC;? What Timmer eventually found was a 2,700-square-foot bungalow from 1958, walking distance to great schools and shopping. But he was going to have to do a lot of work to make it energy-efďŹ cient. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The incentives available through the LiveSmart BC program were a really important consideration in deciding to do the work,â&#x20AC;? says Timmer. A partnership between BC Hydro Power Smart, FortisBC and the Province of British Columbia, LiveSmart BC offers valuable rebates to help make homes more energy-efďŹ cient. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have to worry about shocking energy bills in the future, but we still had a budget we needed to keep to in bringing the home up to a really efďŹ cient standard. The rebates deďŹ nitely helped,â&#x20AC;? says Timmer. In all, Timmer received $1,050 from LiveSmart BC for completing a range of energy-efďŹ ciency upgrades to his home, including extensive air sealing around windows, doors and electrical outlets and improvements to attic and roof insulation. An assessment of Timmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home before he did the upgrades gave him an EnerGuide 69 rating; that rose to EnerGuide 81 after the work was complete. EnerGuide was established by Natural Resources Canada; any rating over 80 means that a home is extremely energy-efďŹ cient and will use up to 30 per cent less energy on heating and electricity than an average home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our monthly energy bill is now just $101 a month,â&#x20AC;? boasts Timmer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took work, but the house is really comfortable now. I also think that, in future, the EnerGuide 81 rating will help us sell the house more quickly.â&#x20AC;? To ďŹ nd out more about the LiveSmart BC program, visit bchydro.com/ livesmartbc.

Think of the big picture when it comes to windows By Kerry Vital When it comes to replacing your windows, you’ll need a clear vision of what you want the exterior of your home to look like. “You have to think big picture on what look you want,” says Mark Brandow, sales manager for Centra Windows. “Are you going to paint the exterior a different colour in the future? Are you going to change the siding?” Brandow says that the first thing he does when he goes to a client’s home is to stand outside the house with the homeowner and talk about the look he or she wants for their home. “You need to have a vision of what you want,” he says. The biggest thing that homeowners need to consider when replacing their windows is the energy savings, especially as it gets colder. “You want to keep the heat in,” Brandow says, adding that it will save you money in the long run.
