Booze in grocery stores? Government listening to consumers, but private outlet owners vexed Jason ROESSLE Abbotsford News
You may soon be able to purchase a bottle of wine or your favourite beer while grocery shopping, if provincial laws change. The B.C. government’s liquor policy review has heard a “loud and clear” message that people want the convenience of buying alcoholic beverages in grocery stores, says the MLA in charge of the review.
However, owners of private liquor outlets say such a move is unnecessary, and unfair to those who invested in the business. With a three-month consultation period ending Oct. 31, Richmond Steveston MLA John Yap said Tuesday that about 80 per cent of respondents (who commented via a government-created blog, through emails and Tweets) want the extra convenience that is routine in U.S. grocery stores. Paul Esposito, Sr. owns a number of local
businesses, including a soon-to-open private liquor store on Mt. Lehman at Highstreet mall. His company was the first in Abbotsford to introduce private stores, and he maintains consumers are already being well-served. Allowing grocery stores to sell alcohol would “be a detriment to the private liquor store industry,” he said, pointing out in the past three decades, many entrepreneurs such as himself have invested heavily.

Injured woman hit by government bill Accident victim informed she was overpaid Alina KONEVSKI Abbotsford News
An injured single mom in Mission was shocked to receive a bill for $1,940 from Service Canada from an overpayment on her employment sickness benefits. As she recovers from a serious car accident, she is further stressed by the high monthly payment the government demanded. In April 2012, Michelle Webber-Rykers lost her job as an employment counsellor in a province-wide restructuring. She went on employment insurance (EI) benefits to cover the bills and provide for her teenaged son. Six months later, she suffered a serious motor vehicle accident. Her car was a write-off. After a week at Abbotsford hospital with fractures in her right knee and ankle, she went home and qualified for EI sickness
benefits, as well as extensive support from ICBC. Somewhere in the midst of multiple surgeries, countless visits to doctors and specialists in Abbotsford and Vancouver, and unending paperwork submissions to Service Canada and ICBC, Webber-Rykers ended up receiving the wrong type of EI benefit. “They just kept sending cheques to me. I couldn’t keep an eye on it, I couldn’t keep track. I was in the hospital the first time with 30 milligrams of OxyContin every three hours. There’s no way I could focus,” said Webber-Rykers. “I can hardly remember the last year, to be honest, and then I get this bill.” Service Canada – also known as Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) – notified Webber-Rykers that they were stopping her sickness benefits because she no
longer qualified and that they overpaid her. Then around July 2013, Webber-Rykers received an invoice for $1,940 from HRSDC, with a monthly minimum payment of $330 due immediately. “I had to pay rent, I had to get food, and I had to raise my 16-year-old, let alone bills. This is not fair. I was doing everything right and healing accordingly,” she said. “It’s so frustrating, because I don’t think I deserve for them to have overpaid me, and now ask me for the money, after everything I’ve been through. There’s no way I could have followed that they were overpaying me.” Webber-Rykers is still on crutches, with metal hardware holding her right knee in place and a foot-long scar reminding her that she is lucky to be alive. She speaks with a shaky voice and sometimes loses her Continued on A6

Feds accused of ignoring Cohen’s sockeye solutions Jeff NAGEL Black Press
Conservation groups are criticizing the federal government for inaction one year after the tabling of the Cohen Commission’s exhaustive report on how to halt the decline of Fraser River sockeye salmon. They say Justice Bruce Cohen’s 75 recommendations have languished following the $26-million inquiry, with no sign of meaningful action from the federal government that dispatched him. “There are a lot of people disappointed,” Watershed Watch Salmon Society executive director Craig Orr said. “What was hailed by many as a blueprint to sustain sockeye into the future is starting to look a lot more like a government retreat.”
Cohen focused in large part on the potential risk to wild salmon from net pen fish farms and urged transparent sharing of disease data by the farms. “We haven’t seen that yet,” Orr said, adding Ottawa should also take up Cohen’s call to change how it regulates aquaculture. “We want to see them fix the conflicted mandate of government – on the one hand promoting salmon farming while on the other supposedly protecting wild fish.” Orr said the provincial government is moving to update B.C.’s Water Act, potentially adding some additional protections, but added it’s “a stretch” to think that will make up for the recent erosion of federal legislation protecting fish

The sockeye salmon run in B.C. has been in decline over the years, and some conservation groups are being critical after a lack of action on the Cohen Commission report. habitat. The Fisheries Act was amended last year so its ban on damaging habitat now only outlaws “serious harm” to stocks that are actually fished by commercial, sport or aboriginal users.

Minister Gail Shea said in a statement the government is continuing a Cohenrecommended moratorium on new salmon farms in the Discovery Islands zone near Campbell River and that it “will not be lifted for the foreseeable
future.” Shea said Cohen’s findings are helping guide day-to-day work protecting salmon. “We are responding to his recommendations not by producing another written document, but by taking concrete actions that
make a real difference.” In a separate interview, Shea told Black Press the Cohen recommendations led to a doubling of fishing enforcement on the Pacific salmon fishery in August and September. Using aerial surveillance and on-water enforcement, fisheries officers seized 10 vessels and 66 nets this year, an increase from the previous year. Ottawa spends $65 million a year on Pacific salmon initiatives, $20 million of that directly tied to Fraser sockeye. John Fraser, a former fisheries minister and speaker of the House of Commons who once led an earlier four-year probe of B.C. salmon stocks, said Ottawa deserves credit for steering extra money
to Pacific salmon projects, but scolded the lack of response to Cohen. “Quite frankly, there isn’t any excuse for it,” Fraser said. “And I say that as a lifetime Conservative.” He was among critics who warn the salmon outlook is further clouded by the Fisheries Act changes and deep cuts to biologists and other Department of Fisheries and Oceans staff. DFO staff are acting without new regulations spelling out how changes to the act will be applied, he said, and increasingly with inadequate research. Cohen’s three-volume report did not point to any single culprit for the two-decade slide in sockeye numbers. – with files from Tom Fletcher

thoughts. She doesn’t remember the accident over a year ago that is the cause of her daily migraines and lingering concussion. Since Webber-Rykers received that initial bill from HRSDC, she has received another five invoices, and three phone calls from agency representatives across Canada. The agency allegedly told Webber-Rykers to cough up the $330 monthly payment, or start losing her other government benefits, such as her child tax benefit, her income tax refund, and her GST rebate. During the last phone call in early November, WebberRykers was told to reapply to regular EI, and that she would forfeit her first two months of EI paycheques to pay down the debt. “They are going to get the money out of me either way,” she said. Going after overpayments and unpaid debts is standard practice for the government, and HRSDC is well within its rights to recover debts by withholding future payments, explained Ashley Ayliffe, workplace law lawyer with Baker Newby in Abbotsford and Chilliwack. “They (HRSDC) have quite extraordinary powers to execute, and they usually have the beneficiary…over a barrel, because they’re the ones that hold the money that could be paid out in future benefits,” said Ayliffe. Although Webber-Rykers still cannot work, technically she does not qualify for any benefit right now. She has reached the legal limit of the
maximum 15 weeks of sickness benefits. In order to apply for regular EI, she must certify that she is ready and willing to return to work. She is not alone in this limbo. “I think the real problem is (medical) EI doesn’t have anything further for anybody after 15 weeks, and that’s a serious problem,” said Ayliffe, “Because after 15 weeks, you have to be better. And if you’re better, you can have benefits. And if you’re not, you can’t have benefits, but you also can’t find a job. That creates an obvious problem for people at week 16 who are still disabled that have used up their sickness benefits. They’ll need to have another Ashley Ayliffe source.” The government expects such people to transition to welfare or permanent disability benefits. Webber-Rykers doesn’t quality for welfare because she still has her vehicle – an asset. “That’s fine if you’re really at the low end of the poverty spectrum,” said Ayliffe. “But the reality is that a lot of people are living at or near the poverty level on a daily basis with their normal income. And when something like this happens, they still have some money in assets, and they just don’t quality for welfare…Finally when they’ve lost everything, they might qualify for welfare.” After the Abbotsford News contacted HRSDC for a comment, Webber-Rykers said she received a call from the agency informing her that the debt will be written off. HRSDC was unable to provide a comment on the case by press deadline.
Finally when they’ve lost everything, they might qualify for welfare.

Suit claims legal responsibility to feed resident Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News
The prospect of having to deny food to a resident of an Abbotsford care home, thereby leading to her death, has already traumatized some of her caregivers, according to documents filed in a civil court case. The documents were filed in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver by Maplewood Seniors’ Care Society. They are in response to a petition filed in August on behalf of Margaret Bentley, 82, a resident of Maplewood House who is in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease. The petition was filed by Bentley’s husband, John, and her daughter, Katherine Hammond. They state that Bentley, a former nurse, prepared a “statement of wishes” in 1991 – eight years before the onset of her condition – that she be fed “no nourishment or liquids” if she were in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s. Staff at Maplewood House have continued to feed Bentley since her family requested in late 2011 that her “living will” be
honoured. Bentley’s husband and daughter are seeking an order from the court that FHA and staff at the home comply with Bentley’s wishes that she not be fed, and that the family not be prevented from removing her from the nursing home. In its response, Maplewood Seniors’ Care Society states that staff are legally required to provide Bentley with nourishment. “While the law permits a person to die without the assistance of extraordinary measures and by refusing health care which would prolong his or her existence, John and Katherine seek the assistance of the Honourable Court to procure the death of Margaret by starvation, which is not only illegal, but also offensive to public decency,” the documents state. They also say that Bentley, who is spoon fed, shows a preference for certain foods, sometimes finishes her meals and other times refuses to eat. They see her participation in feeding as an indication that
she is not yet ready to stop eating, and halting the process would have an impact on her caregivers, the documents say. “The process of starving Margaret to death would have a traumatic effect upon some or all … staff members, who have not been trained to preside over the death of a human being other than in the normal course.” Bentley’s husband and daughter state in their petition that Bentley’s current mental state makes her incapable of consenting to her health care. She has been in a “vegetative state” since 2010, no longer recognizing family members, unable to speak and making limited physical movements, they say. Also named in the petition were Fraser Health and the provincial government. The two agencies have also both filed responses which, in part, detail their legal obligations to provide nourishment to Bentley. The petition is scheduled to be heard in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Dec. 17.

ALR position on record
A story in the Globe and Mail last week, based on leaked documents, caused quite a stir among those who consider preservation of farmland to be a top priority. The report suggested that in a “core review,” the B.C. government was looking at dismantling the Agriculutural Land Commission, which oversees the Agricultural Land Reserve. Also apparently raised in the document was the concept of dividing the ALR into two zones – one for southwestern B.C., and the other for the Interior and north. The minister in charge of the government’s review was quick to deny any intention of dissembling the ALC, or to have it overruled by the Oil and Gas Commission. That scenario was raised by some in light of issues between the two land use agencies in regard to oil and gas exploration and extraction in the northern reaches of the province.
Bennett maintained the Globe story is based on an old document, and that agricultural land commissioners will continue to decide on applications to amend the land reserve, established 40 years ago to protect farmland from development. We find it hard to believe this government – or any other for that matter – would be so foolhardy as to attempt to dramatically tamper with something so important to the public, and the province. To do so would be political suicide. Is the ALR perfect? No. Could some reevaluation be made on some unfarmable lands in the Interior and north? Yes. In that context, we’ll be interested to learn what the core review finds and recommends. However, the government now is on the record that it stands firm behind the Agricultural Land Reserve and the commission that oversees it. That will not be forgotten.
No ‘winner’ for us in the world of curling Mark
Rushton On the
Other Hand A week ago Sunday, I was flicking through the television channels when I spotted curling. Since I occasionally enjoy watching the sport, and was tempted to attend in person when I read that Abbotsford would host the world masters championships, I did the next best thing and clicked on the channel to catch the women’s final. Aside from the action on the ice, what really garnered my attention was the lack of fans in attendance at this world-class sporting event. I’ve seen more people at my granddaughter’s ball games. As the camera panned the crowd it wasn’t difficult to realize that Abbotsford has a huge white elephant that when even “the best” of arena sports hardly attracts
anyone. And for all those people watching televised coverage of the curling championships from around the world, it must have been surprising, and for us embarrassing, that so few attended. Curling may not be the fastest or most exciting spectator sport, but it is an activity in which Canadians excel. Both the Canadian men’s and women’s teams emerged victorious last weekend. Why then did so few turn out to watch? I can’t believe, with virtually every community in B.C. having curling rinks, there aren’t thousands of amateur curlers who wouldn’t give almost anything to study how the best in the world play their game, and thus fill our 7,000-seat arena to the rafters. But obviously that wasn’t the case. Perhaps it was the cost of the tickets, or the way it was promoted – maybe even the event itself. However, something is terribly wrong, and terribly disconcerting for taxpayers who must support this
sports facility, that world class events attract so few paying customers. What will it take, or is it even possible, to make this arena more than a financial millstone around the necks of city council and its beleaguered ratepayers?
Aside from the action on the ice, what really garnered my attention was the lack of fans in attendance at this world-class sporting event. I’m not certain anyone can be blamed for this. After all, voters approved the initial expenditure under Plan A, and we now have this very good facility. It just seems no one is interested in using it because regardless of one’s opinion of the management team that operates Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, it has brought in
major events. A few succeed financially, but most of the activity in that facility attracts so few that at the current usage it will never even come close to paying for itself. Which leaves but two choices – keep it as a community asset that will forever be a drain on tax revenues, or try to sell it along with its total debt. For the right person, a dollar might be good exchange. Fact of the matter, should it be sold/ given away, is that it will remain an arena and entertainment centre. No one is going to buy it, with the kind of debt it has, to simply tear it down. The land isn’t worth that much. Perhaps with a new owner the centre might be successful. If not, it could be a sizeable tax write-off for someone with very deep pockets. As it stands now, the only pockets that are being depleted are those of Abbotsford taxpayers, and even hosting world championship events obviously aren’t able change that.

letters Protect local mature forests
An open letter to Abbotsford council: I would like to bring to your attention potential consequences of your planned weakening of the existing tree conservation laws within our city, especially as it applies to Sumas Mountain. My understanding is that Abbotsford already has green space protection ordinances that are far less stringent than other communities within the Lower Mainland of B.C. It is also my understanding that certain council members, along with the initiative of certain developers and realtors within the region, have prompted a relaxing of the existing tree protection laws to allow for further commercial development. Commercial success in terms of land development does not necessarily correlate with a successful community. One has to consider the repercussions of further indiscriminate land development, as we risk tarnishing our reputation as a â€˜city in the country,â€™ and become like any other community. Why then would medical professionals, or other professionals for that matter, want to come to Abbotsford as opposed to another community? As medical practitioners, we understand that the health and well-being of our patients is partly dependent on the social and environmental health of our community. Many
factors, among them a sustainable natural environment, contribute significantly to our health. Protecting mature trees and forests is an essential part of developing a long-term, sustainable and healthy Abbotsford. I have the support of my medical colleagues in requesting that you reconsider your current proposal to relax the tree protection laws within our community, and stop the plan to cut trees in pristine areas for commercial development. As you are aware, there are pockets of old growth forest on Sumas Mountain, which should be something of pride for us to preserve, and not represent quick money for a few individuals. Development is an expected part of a growing community; itâ€™s more a matter of how and where that development occurs that affects us all. Habitat cannot be replaced by a few landscaped trees planted by a developer on some commercial property. We do not want to be viewed historically as the people who destroyed an environmental legacy for self-interests and monetary gain. Do not wait until the environment has been destroyed before you decide that you want to protect it. After mature forests have been cut, it is too late to consider an environmental sustainability plan. Don Burke, MD Abbotsford

Bradner residents oppose cell tower proposal Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News
Bradner residents are concerned about a cellphone tower proposed at 6738 Bradner Rd. Miriam Helter, who lives on Bradner Road, told city council Monday that much of their community is opposed to the building of a tower. The 50-metre tower would be built by Rogers Communications within a 20 metre by 20 metre fenced compound, which requires approval from the Agricultural Land Commission. A report from city staff states that following a public information meeting, they received 112 comment sheets. The document states 59 per cent were in support and 41 per cent were opposed. But Helter said much more of the community is opposed than recorded by the city. She said she canvassed her neighbours and found that at 113 properties within a one kilometre radius of the site, she received signatures of opposition from 89 – indicating that 79 per cent were opposed. She said residents are concerned about the potential

Peter Leathley, municipal affairs specialist at Rogers Communications, told council that cell towers are regulated by Health Canada and there is no conclusive evidence of negative health effects. He said the tower will address community concerns about poor cellphone coverage in Bradner. He added the height of the tower is intended to allow another cellphone provider to add on to the structure,

mitigating the need to build more towers in the future. But Helter said local residents have been opposing towers in their area for years, and are getting tired of having the same fight. “We’ve sent a strong message over the years and every time this comes up we have to send it again.” Council had the option of forwarding the application to the ALC with a comment either supporting or opposing the project, or providing no comment. They opted for no comment and the proposal will now be considered by the ALC.

More renters forecast
The AbbotsfordMission area is quietly shifting toward becoming a city of apartments, following the trend of denser municipalities. Meanwhile, construction of detached houses is expected to decrease. The first eight months of 2013 saw 234 new apartment rental units begin construction – the highest figure in 20 years, according to the latest Housing Market Outlook by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The spur in construction of multi-family dwellings in the next year will push the total number of property constructions above the 15-year average, CMHC predicts. Lower land prices in Abbotsford-Mission compared with Vancouver, Surrey and Langley have boosted this growth. Demand is also significantly higher for new rental units than older

Demand has increased in the Abbotsford-Mission area for new rental units. ones. Residents in Abbotsford-Mission are also younger on average, which has pushed up sales of first-time homeowner properties like condominiums. The slow growth in new jobs in AbbotsfordMission combined with a young population will delay some people looking to purchase a home, in turn raising rental rates. CMHC predicts the average one-bedroom apartment will rent for $695 in 2014, up from $661 in 2012. Meanwhile, the overall housing market continues to recover in uneven lurches.
The average price for a detached home in Abbotsford increased slightly, from $437,006 in Oct. 2012 to $447,746 one year later. Average prices for townhouses and apartments dropped in that period by a few percentage points, according to the Oct. 2013 statistics from the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB). In Mission, the average price of a detached home fell seven per cent from $381,020 in Oct. 2012 to $354,914 in Oct. 2013. Sales of townhouses and apartments in Mission were too few to determine a
reliable average price change. “We’ve had a great summer and good early fall, but it’s important to remind everyone of the context. The last four months of 2012 were amongst the slowest for our real estate market in the last 15 years,” said FVREB president Ron Todson in a press release. “What we’re witnessing is a return to a balanced residential market indicated by prices remaining unchanged or down slightly compared to a year ago, stable inventory levels and the average length of time to sell a home is about two months.” Across the Fraser Valley, CMHC predicts that single detached homes will become scarcer on the market as constructions slow, pushing up the average home price in the coming year. The agency predicts that the average price of a home in the Valley will be $485,000 for 2013, and reach $500,000 in 2014.

Thieves break into restaurant and steal from ATM Abbotsford Police are trying to track down thieves who removed the glass panel from the front of a restaurant yesterday morning and stole cash from an automated
teller machine. Const. Paul Walker said police received a report at about 7:15 a.m. on Monday that an alarm was going off at a restaurant in the 33800 block of
Essendene Avenue. When they arrived, they noticed that the restaurant’s front glass panel had been removed in one piece from its frame and was sitting to the side.
An ATM inside the business was damaged, and the culprits had made off with some cash. They also stole some computer equipment, Walker said. Walker said wit-
nesses reported seeing a white panel van parked outside the business and sparks coming from within the restaurant near the ATM. “Unfortunately, witnesses did not report
these observations until after police were already on scene,” he said. The Abbotsford Police patrol division is investigating the incident with the assistance of the forensic
identification section. Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604859-5225, text abbypd (222973) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Fraser Valley Stage presents Charlie Brown starting Nov. 14 Fraser Valley Stage presents the award-winning Broadway musical “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” starting Nov. 14. The family-friendly show runs Nov. 14-16 and Nov. 20-23 at the Community Arts Addition (2329 Crescent Way). All performances are at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $18. The cast of characters includes the lovable children from the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Shulz, including Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally and Lucy.
The events of an average day in their lives are told through short scenes, song and dance, including many of the beloved “Peanuts moments.” Snoopy is still fighting the Red Baron, and Lucy delights in bossing everyone around, especially her little brother Linus, who seeks solace with his blanket. Sally, Charlie Brown’s little sister, struggles with bad grades and the jumping rope, while Schroeder is immersed in his music, most especially Beethoven.
Finally, there is Charlie Brown, who has never pitched a winning baseball game, never been able to master the art of flying a kite and never successfully punted a football – among other frustrations. The cast includes Sharla Sauder as Lucy, Andy Rolleman as Snoopy, Josh Levesque as Linus, Paul Kobilke as Schroeder, Sarah Dussin as Sally and Marty Peters as Charlie Brown.

Children perform Christmas Carol
A b b o t s f o r d Children’s Theatre (ACT) brings the classic play The Christmas Carol to the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium in December. Performances take place Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium. Forty-four students from across Abbotsford aged 10 to 17 are learning from this story written over 100 years ago by Charles Dickens. At the time Dickens was hoping to raise funds for the impoverished in England through the art of literature, and in the process created one of the most popular and beloved Christmas classics of all time. “It has a message we can take to heart at any time in our lives,” said Freddy Latham, artistic director and founder of ACT. “Maybe now more than ever we need to remember our own Christmas pasts and bring back the Christmas spirit to our community.” The audience will be treated to classic Christmas carols throughout the performances. They will also see the Greek Chorus technique used, in which a group of students wear masks and speak
in unison to show the emotions of Scrooge. “There is not another children’s acting group like ours in all of B.C.,” Latham said. “This group is a real gem for Abbotsford, and we should be proud of these actors and actresses.” Tickets ($12 advance/$14 door) can be purchased at The Reach, Tourism Abbotsford, and the
third floor of city hall, or online at abbotsfordchildrenstheatre. org. ACT is also doing daytime presentations of The Christmas Carol for schools. The Thursday, Dec. 5 school performances (9:30 a.m.) still have space available. Tickets are $5 per student for the matinees. Email acttheatre@hotmail. com for more details.

Charges have been laid in a crash that killed 22-year-old Brian Patchett of Abbotsford on Sept. 23, 2012. Matthew Hamon, 23, of Abbotsford faces nine charges – one count each of impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death and causing an accident resulting in death; and two counts each of impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm. Patchett was in the back seat of a 1997 Chevy Malibu headed west on Vye Road near Sumas Way at about 2:30 a.m. when the vehicle struck a concrete barricade, then a hydro pole, and flipped on its roof. He was pronounced dead on the scene, and a 22-year-old woman who was also in the back seat was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries. The male driver and the female passenger in the front seat were treated for minor injuries. Police at the time said alcohol and speed were being considered as factors in the crash. Following the incident, Patchett’s wife said he had been on his way home from a friend’s 22nd birthday party, and the driver was a friend of his. Patchett left behind two young children – a boy, now 5, and a girl, now 4 – for whom a trust fund was set up. He had been working at an Abbotsford furniture store, and was the family’s main bread-winner.

In Western Canada, little is available in the way of resources and networking for charitable organizations to rely on, but together, we’d like to help! Gather, share & plan with other like minded attendees on topics such as: reviewing governing documents, how to avoid legal difficulties and the benefits of Strategic Planning as a Board.

Canada’s largest mentoring organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, is turning 100 years old this year. The local agency, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley, is celebrating the national anniversary by taking a look back on some of the successful friendships they have helped spark since their chapter opened their doors in 1969, including the matches they are currently supporting. Abbotsford Big Brother Wayne said he feels like his match with his Little Brother was “meant to be.” Wayne acknowledges his mentee was a little shy at first, but the duo connected by throwing a football around. Almost three years later, this match still enjoys a wide variety of activities such as waterskiing, quading, riding all the rides at Agrifair, and playing golf. “We try to do different things. Lately he has been helping me around the farm, feeding the livestock. I look forward to seeing him every weekend. I think he gets excited too for our Sundays,” Wayne said. Little Brother Isaiah doesn’t remember the exact details of the day he was introduced to Wayne, but recalls being excited about meeting him and getting to go for a ride in his truck. Isaiah said their first outing was to play football and go for a bike ride. “I think a few weeks after we met, we became good friends because I got to know him. We have lots in common; we both like race cars and watching football and being outside. He got me a remote-controlled helicopter and we fly it every week,” he said. Isaiah’s mom Annetta said Isaiah was shy and a bit nervous at first, but they soon hit it off. “They pretty much connected right away – their interests were so similar. Wayne teaches him the benefit of having a male role model. He is much more confident now.” A recent research study conducted by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health found that compared to girls without a mentor, mentored girls are 2.5 times more likely to be confident in their ability to succeed at school, and four times less likely to bully, fight, lie or negatively express anger. Mentored boys are two times less likely to develop negative conducts like bullying, fighting, lying, cheating, and losing their temper, and are two times more likely to believe that school is fun and that doing well academically is important.

New buses for school district Eight new buses expected to start running in spring Alina KONEVSKI Abbotsford News
Eight brand new school buses are coming to the Abbotsford school district in 2014, the first new buses to the district in two years. The replacements are part of a provincial purchase of 96 buses spread across 31 districts, at a cost of $11 million and representing about 10 per cent of the overall B.C. fleet.

The Abbotsford purchase is the third largest in the province at a cost of $934,845. It will comprise of two 84-seaters and six 72-seaters which will be delivered in early 2014. Annually, the district replaces two or three buses, according to communications manager Dave Stephen. Six of the eight new buses represent two years’ worth of replacements. The final two buses are additions to the current fleet of 46. “The final two buses are due to expansion and growth of the routes we provide, and numbers of students utilizing bus transport in the district,” explained Stephen by email. The large B.C. school buses of 80 or more seats are replaced every 15 years or 400,000 km. The 34-76 seaters are replaced every 12 years or 325,000 km. This is the third year since the Ministry of Education has taken over purchasing buses for all school districts. Earlier, districts would negotiate with providers individually. The government states that the new bulk purchasing system has reduced costs of new buses by 10 to 15 per cent.

Cascade successful in bid for international military contract Jason ROESSLE Abbotsford News
An Abbotsford company won its first international military customer after signing an agreement with the Canadian C o m m e r c i a l Corporation (CCC). Cascade Aerospace will be modernizing two Mexican Air Force C130K Hercules aircraft, including a maintenance program, upgrade to the avionics system and other modifications. The company will also provide operational and technical training for military personnel at the Abbotsford facility. A c c o rd i n g to Cascade spokesperson Kim Tamminga,
the contract will boost the local company’s international profile. “We have been working with the Mexican military for about a year,” she said. The country has a “very thorough” review process, and Cascade edged about four or five other companies for the contract, she added. “The foundational skills and knowledge developed through our C130 fleet management program for Canada has given us the capability to leverage our services into the international market,” said Ben Boehm, Cascade’s executive vice-president and chief operating officer. The CCC is a federal Crown corporation that acts as Canada’s international contracting and procurement agency. The entity re-

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW before you call any electrician
To ensure you are contacting the right electrician, consider this...
Focused or Filler: Most electricians prefer new construction or big projects and consider home renovations and repairs an interruption to their day. At Blue Crest Electric we focus on the homeowner. We love home renovations and take great pride in our installations. Our broad scope of knowledge and experience means that troubleshooting and problem solving are our specialty.
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.
Invoice Overload: This is what happens when you get a ‘ball-park estimate’ or are

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.
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.
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% guaranteed. If you’re unhappy with our work for any reason, we’ll redo it. Free. We want you to be more than just 100% satisﬁed. We want you to tell your friends good things about us.

Seventh heaven: Heat tie franchise record for consecutive wins Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News
The Abbotsford Heat weren’t supposed to have this much success, this soon. Maybe they’re just too young to know any better. This peachfuzz-laden edition of the Heat has been together just 16 games, but they’ve already managed to tie the franchise’s regularseason record for consecutive wins. They racked up their seventh in a row on Sunday, beating the Toronto Marlies 6-3 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre, and find themselves atop the AHL’s overall standings with an 11-4-1 record for 23 points. Granted, the Heat are tied for the most games
JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News
Brett Olson (right) and the Abbotsford Heat swept a two-game set vs. Toronto Marlies on the weekend to move into first place overall in the AHL. played at this early stage, and Sunday’s win was the first in the streak that was by more than one goal, so to paint them as a juggernaut isn’t entirely accurate. But give this group credit – despite the fact that many youngsters are still acclimatizing themselves to pro hock-
ey, they’re finding ways to win. There’s a sense of calm about them, and a confidence in their collective ability to generate offence. Take Sunday’s game – after the Marlies rallied from a 3-1 deficit to knot the score 3-3 early in the third period, the Heat reeled off three goals in
the last eight minutes of regulation. Brett Olson finished off a tic-tac-toe passing play for the game-winner, Markus Granlund scored on a penalty shot, and Michael Ferland notched an empty-netter. For more coverage, visit the Heat Central page at abbynews.com

Hawks, Hurricanes win playoff openers
W.J. Mouat Hawks head coach Denis Kellyâ€™s initial plan heading into Fridayâ€™s AAA high school football playoff opener was to keep star running back Maleek Irons on the bench. Irons had suffered a leg bruise in the Hawksâ€™ last game â€“ it was a minor injury, and he was available to play, but Kelly preferred not to risk it. He proved too tantalizing a talent to leave on the sideline, though. You donâ€™t leave a Ferrari in the garage, right? Kelly allowed him six carries, and he made the most of them, rushing for 155 yards â€“ including TDs of 64 and 49 yards â€“ as the Hawks beat the Notre Dame Jugglers 49-24. â€œYou get in a situation where you know that heâ€™s the one who can run that play particularly well, so you give it to him, and then he scores,â€? Kelly marveled. â€œYou get kind of intoxicated with what you can do.â€? Slater McRae had TD runs of 30 and 45 yards, and Jacob Dodd had 101 rush yards and a TD. QB Hunter Struthers also rushed for a score and hit Jake Firlotte for a major, while Clovis Lumeka (11 tackles, one sack) led the defence.
HANSEN 14, WINDSOR 7 With his teamâ€™s season hanging in the balance, Hansen Hurricanes linebacker Brandon Ho came through with a huge defensive play. The Hurricanes were clinging to a 14-7 lead in the final minute, and the Windsor Dukes had driven down to the Hansen 10 yard line. But Ho tracked down a Dukes receiver, stripped the ball and recovered it. The offence was able to run out the clock from there. â€œThey had an opportunity, and thatâ€™s football,â€? head coach Paul Gill said. â€œBrandon made a great play.â€? QB Alex Ho, Brandonâ€™s twin brother, and receiver Zach Toews combined for two passing TDs for the â€™Canes. CARSON GRAHAM 35, BATEMAN 18 Itâ€™s never pleasant to suffer a season-ending loss, but the Robert Bateman Timberwolves were extra sour after controversial call changed the complexion of their playoff tilt vs. Carson Graham. The T-Wolves felt Ben Cummings had gotten into the end zone on a one-yard run in the third quarter, but an Eagles player picked the ball up and returned it the length of the field. It was ruled a 99-yard fumble-
return TD. The pivotal play â€œdeflated the kids,â€? Bateman head coach Alfred Brathwaite said, and the
Eagles rolled from there. â€œA lot of the kids were very, very upset,â€? Brathwaite noted. â€œThey poured their hearts into
this game, and they poured their hearts out afterward.â€? For more coverage, visit abbynews.com

W.J. Mouat Hawks running back Maleek Irons and Rick Hansen Hurricanes linebacker Brandon Ho highlighted the local content on the AAA and AA Eastern Conference high school football all-star teams, which were unveiled last week. Irons was the AAA conference's offensive MVP, while Ho was the defensive MVP of the AA conference. Irons’s 2,346 rush yards through the end of the regular season were tops in the province, and he also scored 26 TDs on the ground. Four of Irons's Hawks team-
mates were also conference allstars: tight end Jake Firlotte (27 receptions, 579 yards, 12 TDs), offensive lineman Levi Hua, defensive lineman Akash Sandhu (40 tackles, three sacks) and linebacker Manpreet Chhina (67 tackles). On the AA scene, 11 Abbotsford players were honoured as conference all-stars, led by Ho, who racked up 55 tackles and six sacks to pace a stingy Hansen defence. Ho's twin brother Alex was the AA all-star quarterback after leading the circuit in passing yards with 2,123, and his favourite tar-
get, Zach Toews, was an all-star receiver. Other Hansen all-stars included D-linemen Shaiheem Charles-Brown (55 tackles, 10 sacks) and Jimmy Brar (33 tackles), and defensive back Brad Atkinson (45 tackles, six interceptions). The Bateman T-Wolves had five players honoured, including running back Ben Cummings (1,544 rush yards, second-most in AA), receiver Daniel Mills, linebackers Sam Kuyek (42 tackles, two sacks) and Austen Zacher (34 tackles), and defensive back Tanner Friesen (42 tackles).

Top-ranked Cascades sink Mariners up a pair of impressive road wins vs. the Victoria Vikes. The Cascades (4-0) won 68-55 victory on Friday and 77-61 on Saturday. Sarah Wierks was outstanding both nights – she had 21 points in the opener, and a double-double (19 points, 13 rebounds) in the second game. Q The Cascades men’s hoopsters were swept by a very strong Vikes team which is ranked No. 4 in the CIS. UFV (2-2) pushed Victoria to the limit on Friday, falling 70-65 despite 21 points from Kadeem Willis. The rematch wasn’t as close, as UVic pulled away in the fourth quarter to win 74-55. Q The Columbia Bible College basketball teams were on Vancouver Island on the weekend, and and the men’s squad
picked up their first win of the season, beating the Camosun Chargers 108-104 in overtime on Saturday. Marcio Juk led the way with 39 points for the Bearcats (13), who were coming off an 89-57 loss to VIU the previous night. Q The CBC women’s basketball team (0-4) dropped both games on the Island, falling 72-34 to VIU and 72-38 to Camosun. Q The Bearcats men’s volleyball team (4-4) maintained their .500 record by splitting a pair of home games vs. Camosun. They lost in four sets on Friday, but bounced back to win a four-setter Saturday. Q The injury-wracked CBC women’s volleyball squad is still seeking its first victory of the season – the Bearcats (0-8) fell in four sets Friday and in three on Saturday to Camosun.

Embraced by a lot of love Mary peacefully left us to enter her final resting place in heaven. Mary was a loving wife, an amazing mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her best quality was her ability to love that showed in everything she did. Mary was born in Leeuwarderadeel, Netherlands. In 1952 she immigrated to Canada with her husband John where they established a dairy farm and blueberry farm in Matsqui Prairie. In 1980 they moved into Abbotsford where on Bellevue Crescent people always admired her beautiful flowerbeds that she would plant every year. Mary also enjoyed playing regular card games with family and friends. Mary had a very kind and gentle heart which was especially evident with children. Survived by her sons Ted (Ria), Willy (Debbie), Marty (Allie), daughters Margaret (Rob) and Mariann (Rick), 16 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren and other family members in Holland and predeceased by her beloved husband John (2012) and son Martinus (1960). The Kooyman family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Cottage Pavilion and Dr. Douglas Henderson for the amazing care that they have all provided. A prayer Service will be held Thursday, November 14 at 7:00 pm and a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday, November 15 at 10:30 am, all to be held at St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church, 33333 Mayfair Avenue, Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Abbotsford Canuck Place. You are loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure. You are invited to leave a fond memory or message of condolence at the family’s on-line guest book at: www.myalternatives.ca
