Abbotsford News

More children in Abbotsford will have proper meals on the weekends, thanks to generous contributions from the community – but the number of kids going hungry is “staggering.” On Tuesday, the Rotary Club of Abbotsford presented a cheque for $35,000 to the Abbotsford Food Bank on behalf of the group, its members, and 16 corporate partners to fund the Blessings in a Backpack program. But child poverty and hunger remain an issue in this city and across B.C. According to Stats Canada, B.C. has the highest rate of child poverty. The backpack program – organized by the Rotary Club and the food bank – provides backpacks full of balanced meals to children who face sparse cupboards on the weekends. Currently, 62 students receive the backpacks, containing breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. The Rotary club also announced a new partnership with the Abbotsford Christian Assembly, which will provide funding for 25 more backpacks, as well as a dozen volunteers to shop, fill and deliver the packs for the remainder of the school year and beyond. Dave Murray, co-ordinator of the Abbotsford Food Bank, said the school district has identified more than 100 kids in need of food in eight schools in Abbotsford. The organization also receives requests for help for students who haven’t been identified by the district. Bruce Beck, director of community service for the Rotary Club of Abbotsford, said the estimate of how many students who could use the assistance goes as high as 400. Continued on A4

Winter Holiday Safety

Compost Your Christmas Tree

Winter holidays are a time for families and friends to get together. But that also means a greater risk for ¿re. Following a few simple tips will ensure a happy and ¿re-safe holiday season. Holiday Decorating • Be careful with holiday decorations. Choose decorations that are Àame resistant or Àame retardant. • Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn. • Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect. • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. • Keep decorations away from windows and doors. Holiday Entertaining • Test your smoke alarms and tell guests about your home ¿re escape plan. • Keep children and pets away from lit candles. • Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet. • Stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop. • Ask smokers to smoke outside. Remind smokers to keep their smoking materials with them so young children do not touch them. • Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Wet cigarette butts with water before discarding. Christmas Tree Safety • Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched. • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 1-2� from the base of the trunk. • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like ¿replaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights. • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit. • Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily. • Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use. • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini string sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect. • Never use lit candles to decorate the tree. • After Christmas — Get rid of the tree after Christmas or when it is dry. Dried-out trees are a ¿re danger and should not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside against the home. Check with your local community to ¿nd a recycling program. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer. Before Heading Out or to Bed • Blow out lit candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Turn off all light strings and decorations before leaving home or going to bed.

Real Christmas trees are compostable. After the holiday season, after you have removed all decorations, you can either dispose of your tree by using the curbside compostable collection program, or by dropping off your Christmas tree for a minimum donation of $2 per tree at the Net Zero Waste Abbotsford Composting Facility, located at 5050 Gladwin Road. All donations will be given to the Abbotsford Food Bank. If you have any questions regarding disposal of Christmas trees and other compostable waste at the Composting Facility, please call 604-557-7065. If disposing of your Christmas tree by using the curbside yard waste collection program, you can cut up your tree into sections and place it into your yard waste can or into tied bundles (according to curbside collection requirements). If you have any questions regarding using the curbside collection program, please check www.abbotsford.ca/engineering, or call 604-864-5514.

Frozen Material in Curbside Containers Winter temperatures can freeze garbage and compost inside your curbside container and make it difÂżcult to collect. To avoid injury and damaging containers, collection workers will only provide limited shaking and hitting of containers against the truck to dislodge frozen materials. To prevent compostable materials from freezing to the sides of your container, line it with crumpled newspaper, paper, dry grass, branches or cedar needles. Please also ensure your garbage and compost containers have a secure lid when placing them outdoors to prevent rain from entering and freezing. If you have any questions, please contact the City of Abbotsford Engineering Department at enginfo@abbotsford.ca or 604-864-5514.

City Waste Collection During Extreme Weather The City will make every attempt to collect curbside recycling, compostables and garbage during snow and ice conditions; however, safety is always the highest priority. If weather conditions pose too high of a risk, we will not be collecting and ask that you set out your materials on your next collection day. The usual container limits will be doubled for areas that have missed a collection day. On some occasions the City, or its contractor, may provide additional collection as soon as possible after the missed collection day. For more information, please see www.abbotsford.ca/ engineering, or call 604-853-5485 regarding City pickup or 604-864-5640 regarding contractor pickup.

2014 Council Meeting Schedule At the July 22, 2013 Regular Meeting of Council, Council approved the 2014 Council Meeting Schedule. Council Meetings are generally scheduled to take place bi-weekly; and will be held as follows: • Executive Committee Meetings will be held at 3:00 pm;

Snow & Ice Control The goal of the City’s Snow and Ice Control Program is to maintain travel routes where there is snow and ice on roads and restore mobility for the traveling public. Our roads are classi¿ed: • ¿rst priority (high volume and strategic arterial and collector roads, and major access roads to hillside areas); • second priority (remaining arterial, hillside areas and collector routes); and • third priority (remaining roadways not identi¿ed as ¿rst and second priority). First priority roads are maintained until conditions are under control subject to worker/equipment availability and weather. Only then are resources redirected to second priority routes and subsequently third priority routes. The City of Abbotsford, which takes a pro-active approach to snow and ice control, operates three anti-icing units (tanks containing sodium chloride solution) on four-lane roads and rural priority roads. The units are used to spray road surfaces before and during a storm. Anti-icing helps keep roads ice free and improves snow removal. Several pre-wetting units, which inject liquid sodium chloride into the salt/sand mixture before it is applied to roads, are also used by the City. These units increase the melting of snow and ice, and reduce the loss of salt/sand caused by traf¿c. The City does not remove snow and ice to bare pavement conditions. The public is encouraged to use caution, and wherever possible, park vehicles off the streets. Abandoned vehicles or vehicles obstructing roadways will be towed without notice to allow for snow clearing operations to continue and towing costs will be the responsibility of the vehicle owners. We ask that you do not plow snow from private properties onto the public roadways as this can result in visibility hazards and obstructions and will require additional time for clearing roadways. The City will work 24 hour days until the snow ends and ¿rst priority routes are passable for travel. For more information, please contact the Engineering Operations Division at 604-853-5485.

• Public Hearings will be held at 7:00 pm for the ¿rst meeting scheduled in a month, with the Regular Council Meeting immediately following. Further Public Hearings may be added to any meeting of Council based on need; and • Regular Council Meetings will be held at 7:00 pm for the ¿rst meeting scheduled in a month. The complete 2014 Council Meeting Schedule is available on the City’s webpage, www.abbotsford.ca, under Mayor and Council, Agendas and Meetings, or can be viewed on the Council Agenda Board in City Hall, 32315 South Fraser Way, during regular of¿ce hours, Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays.

Charities still far from funding goals Money used to operate agencies year-round Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

More than you expect!

SHOP FOR

The three main Abbotsford charities holding Christmas fundraising campaigns are still struggling to reach their goals. The Abbotsford Food Bank and Christmas Bureau has reached $503,000 toward its $800,000 goal, while Cyrus Centre for atrisk youth has hit the $25,000 mark – about 17 per cent of its $150,000 target. An exact total for the Salvation Army was not yet available, but Deb Lowell of the agency said fundraising toward the $500,000 goal is behind where it was last year. She said mail-in and drop-off donations

are down, as are contributions to the red kettles located around town, despite four more kettles than last year. “Mixed with the increased demand upon our resources, it makes a difficult equation,” Lowell said. Food bank manager Dave Murray said the goal set for that agency is “exactly what we need to operate” for the entire next year. He said financial support is needed the most, but food donations such as canned meat, pasta, vegetables and peanut butter are always appreciated. Despite the current shortfall, representatives from all three agencies said they are optimistic they will attain their goals. “We have faith that the community will

come through like in years past,” said Les Talvio, Cyrus Centre’s executive director. For more information or to make a donation, call Cyrus Centre at 604-859-5773 or visit cyruscentre.com. For more information or to make a donation to the Abbotsford Food Bank and Christmas Bureau, call 604-859-5749, go online to abbotsfordfoodbank.com or visit the facility at 33914 Essendene Ave. Donations to the Salvation Army can be made by phone (604-852-9305), online (careandshare.ca), by texting HOPE1012 to 45678, or in person at either the Centre of Hope (34081 Gladys Ave.) or Cascade Community Church (35190 DeLair Rd.).

For Murray, this is indicative of how great the need is – and how the demand for assistance could go on without limit. Approximately 3,000 people receive food monthly from the Abbotsford Food Bank and of those 40 per cent are children, higher than the provincial average of 29.5 per cent. In Abbotsford, 18 per cent of food bank clients are working adults, compared with 11.4 per cent in B.C. and 11.7 per cent in Canada. Murray said the issue of child poverty in Abbotsford is “staggering,” and children are left as “victims of their parents’ circumstances.” He said high rent prices in Abbotsford, as well as cost of living and day-

care expenses, mean that even working parents can struggle to provide for their children. The backpack program currently runs at two schools in Abbotsford, with volunteer assistance from Northview Community Church. Beck said financial contributions are integral to the program, but a true necessity is the additional volunteers and the time commitment they make to the program. After an article about the backpack program ran in The News Nov. 28, Beck said the club received inquiries from schools about the program and met with the district to discuss where there were students in need. He said there is “excessively

more need than resources” to help feed children in need, adding that the backpack program is only “an arrow in the quiver of services provided by the Abbotsford Food Bank.” “We’re still only a fraction of the way to making sure that children in Abbotsford are not going hungry.” However, additional donations have allowed the program to expand to four schools and 90 students in the new year. Beck said the club was overwhelmed to learn of the need in Abbotsford – and then by the community’s response. “What it says to me is that the notion of a child going without food for two days in this community is a concept that most residents wouldn’t have sus-

pected, but when they were made aware of it, it touched people at a very deep level.” Beck said child hunger and poverty is not a simple problem and the backpack program is not a solution, but rather a way of making sure kids aren’t going hungry while the community looks for long-term answers. The cost to fund a backpack for a year is $525, and businesses, groups or individuals interested in contributing can contact Beck at bbb1771@shawbiz. ca, call the Abbotsford Food Bank at 604-859-5749, or visit the site at 33914 Essendene Ave. Cheques can be made out the Abbotsford Food Bank with “Blessings for Backpacks” on the notation line.

Judge to rule on homeless issue A B.C. Supreme court judge is expected to make a decision this morning (Friday) on the City of Abbotsford’s application for an injunction to order residents of a homeless protest camp to vacate Jubilee Park. Lawyers from the city argued

during court proceedings in New Westminster on Tuesday that the camp has been set up in violation of city bylaws. Lawyers from the Pivot Legal Society, representing occupants of the camp, argued they should be allowed to remain because

they have nowhere else to go and forcing them to leave would be a violation of their charter rights. The city is also seeking an injunction to remove the wooden structure that the group briefly occupied in a city-owned parking lot adjacent to Jubilee Park.

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Edmonton police are looking into an alleged incident of hazing involving the W.J. Mouat Secondary senior boys basketball team. Scott Pattison, Edmonton Police Service (EPS) spokesperson, told The News that they have begun a “preliminary investigation.” He did not shed additional light on the nature of the incident. “We’re just poking around at it right now, and that’s as much as I can tell you,” Pattison said. “It’s very preliminary as of today.” Earlier in the week, Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald had stated that the local force’s school liaison officer was aware of the circumstances, but the EPS has jurisdiction because the incident occurred while the Mouat Hawks basketball team was in the Alberta capital for a tournament. The Mike Dea Classic, hosted by St. Francis Xavier high school, ran Dec. 5-7. The Abbotsford school district, at this time, is not releasing further details of the incident, which was described as “very

poor decision-making” by Hawks head coach Rich Ralston. Seven Mouat student athletes have been suspended in the aftermath. Three of the players will be subject to a school review, while four are facing a more serious district board of review. The review proceedings were initially scheduled for early January 2014, but school district communications manager Dave Stephen said that the timeline has been accelerated for the school reviews for the three players, and could be completed within 24 hours. The range of disciplinary options for the district review include suspension from the basketball team and/or the school, or expulsion. In the event of expulsion from Mouat, Stephen said the students would be placed in another school. As for the preliminary police investigation, Stephen said that the school district “will co-operate to the fullest” with the Abbotsford and Edmonton forces. “We were aware the Abbotsford police had opened a file and had reached out to the Edmonton police,” he said. “It’s not an investigation we’ve triggered, other than our school liaison officer came in. It would have been triggered by a complaint. ”

Bottle drive in support of a friend Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

For Menno Koehoorn and others, 84-year-old Gus has been a fixture in south Abbotsford, as he tours neighbourhoods on his bicycle to collect empty cans and bottles to supplement his income. Last Friday, Gus dropped by Koehoorn’s King Road home and said it would be his last time to pick up the items. With tears in his eyes, Gus explained that he had been in the hospital for 17 of the last 30 days and was too sick to continue, although he didn’t elaborate on his illness. The news was upsetting to Koehoorn, who first met Gus 13 years ago when he started coming by his place. He knew how much Gus enjoyed riding his bicycle and visiting the neighbours. Many of them had “adopted” Gus and helped him out as much as they could, including saving their empty bottles and

Abbotsford

Abbotsford council has approved the 2014 budget, and is on track to provide taxpayers with an overall municipal tax increase of less than half a per cent next year. The general municipal tax will drop by 0.29 per cent, which the city says can be done by finding efficiencies with no cuts to services. Increases for police – 0.58 per cent – and the regional library – 0.15 per cent – lead to a total tax increase of 0.44 per cent.  Even with the slight budget boost, Abbotsford Police Department will reduce its staff by four officers and one civilian through attrition. The budget will undergo another review in February for any necessary amendments.

trucks who will then shuttle the loads to the bottle depot and turn the money over to Gus. “Abbotsford is the most giving community in all of Canada,” Koehoorn said. “Let’s surprise Gus and show how much we care for and respect him.” Koehoorn has posted the information on his Facebook page, and several people have come forward not only to donate bottles, but to help Gus with other tasks. For example, someone has offered to cook him a meal. Another woman volunteered to clean his home. Koehoorn says Gus would be thrilled if people dropped off cans and bottles for him. “Gus’s eyes light up when he spots one can. Can you imagine a driveway full?” he said. Empty bottles and cans can be dropped off on Boxing Day – or after that – at 33220 Huntingdon Road.

Abbotsford’s total 2013 budget is about $250 million, with an operating budget of roughly $170 million and a capital budget of $80 million. Among the city’s high priorities is paying down debt, building back reserves for the city’s road development cost charges (DCCs), which are currently in the negative, and building an overpass at Vye Road. The city also plans to replace two fire halls – Hall 4 Matsqui and Hall 5 Mt. Lehman – to address seismic and operational constraints. Planned improvements to Clayburn Creek will address flooding. The parks and recreation department is planning to develop new sport fields and acquire lands around Mill Lake Park. Another major project for the city will include updating both the Official Community Plan –  the last was created in 2005 – and the city’s zoning bylaws.

OF THE WEEK Are you satisfied with the 0.5% increase in municipal taxes contained in the 2014 budget?

Homeless in park

The fact some may be as their lawyer put it “hard to house” does not mean impossible. The park as in this case is not the property of one or a few but of all to enjoy freely regardless of age, race, gender or religion. I understand they are homeless and some have problems however that does not give them any right to obstruct the park from others nor to use drugs, litter, or harass others as many of them have been doing in one form or another. I am sorry but they need to vacate the park and all other city lands. Robert Kleisinger

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Canada Post has announced it will discontinue the last of its urban home mail delivery. Do you care?

There has to be a better way to deal with this than to keep wasting tax dollars on court processes that fail to address the problem with any kind of solution outside of relocating the problem. Kathleen O’Lane

You responded:

YES: 54 % NO: 46 %

I agree; city parks are meant to be enjoyed freely and not to be hijacked by one segment of society for

Reconsider attitude

I realize that the camp at Jubilee Park will not be allowed to become permanent.   At the same time, I wonder at the desperation of people who consider tents, or even plywood, to be their shelter of choice.   I also wonder  where our elected representatives – local, provincial and federal – expect these people to go when told to “move on.”   Most of us, including, of course our elected representatives, are fortunate to sleep in heated houses, and have worries limited to which

restaurant to choose for Christmas celebrations.   Those benefits often come down to having the good fortune of a supportive birth family, combined with limited  physical or mental challenges.  I hope Abbotsford residents – particularly at this time of year – will reconsider the attitude  that homelessness can be solved simply by everyone just going out and getting a job.  Regina Dalton Abbotsford

Cameras on school buses

Recently my children were nearly hit by a vehicle passing their school bus when they were going to cross the street. If it wasn’t for my son grabbing his sister and the student yelling “stop.” I fear the worst may have happened. I found out in this modern day our school buses have no cameras. I really want to see cameras installed

on to all buses, especially the ones in the country, since I think it may happen more or get overlooked there. I spoke to my kids’ bus driver and she says it happens frequently. Sure enough, with the lights still on when I spoke to her, a driver pulls out of the parking lot and cuts off the bus. I tried to catch her plate and failed. Agencies such as the

police, ICBC and the school district should try to find a way to get the funds to install cameras on the buses before one of our precious children is killed or injured by one of these drivers. Perhaps ICBC could take some of the fines from drivers ticketed speeding in school zones and passing buses. Kim Hay, Abbotsford

Cheng acquitted of all charges Abbotsford News

In October, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled that the evidence should be thrown out in an Abbotsford drug and weapons case because the accused’s charter rights were breached. On Dec. 5 in the Chilliwack courthouse, Godwin Cheng, formerly linked to now deceased Red Scorpion gang associate Jonathan Bacon, was acquitted of all the charges for which he had gone on trial. Cheng, 39, faced 12 charges, including possession for the purpose of trafficking, possessing a prohibited weapon and possessing stolen property. Cheng was charged after police conducted a search of his then residence – located in the 35000 block of Hawksview Place – on Aug. 12, 2005. They found brass knuckles, a switch blade, a loaded Glock semiautomatic handgun, cocaine and marijuana. Cheng’s lawyer argued in court in October that the information po-

lice used to obtain the search warrant was not reliable or sufficient enough to have the warrant granted. The judge agreed and tossed out all the evidence that resulted from the search of the home. This then led to Thursday’s acquittal. Cheng was sentenced last December to 18 months’ house arrest in a separate case that also

meth, ecstasy pills, cocaine, $2,600 cash and cellphones. That case, which initially stayed charges against the pair, as well as Bacon’s former girlfriend Rayleene Burton, went through the appeals process all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, which ordered a new trial. Charges against Burton were permanently stayed.

involved Bacon prior to his targeted-shooting death in Kelowna in August 2011. Eight days prior to the Hawksview Place arrest in 2005, Bacon and Cheng were arrested when police saw them transferring packages between vehicles and driving to a meeting point. Among the items found in Cheng’s vehicle were marijuana,

Careen loses appeal on 2011 conviction Former teacher convicted of sexual exploitation of student Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford former teacher has lost an appeal into his 2011 conviction for sexual exploitation. Martin Careen, 53, appealed the verdict, saying that the trial judge erred when he granted an amendment to the original charge. Careen, a former teacher at St. John Brebeuf Regional Secondary, a private Catholic school, was convicted of invitation to sexual touching (sexual exploitation) based on suggestive text messages he sent to a 17-year-old female student in January 2009.

He was sentenced in May 2012 to six months in jail and was banned by the Catholic Independent Schools of Vancouver Archdiocese from teaching in the Catholic school system. Careen had pleaded not guilty to the charge of asking the student to touch herself for a sexual purpose. In closing submissions at his trial, the Crown successfully applied to amend the charge to state that Careen had asked the student to touch him, inviting physical contact between the two. Judge Terrence Schultes granted the amendment,

taken seriously.” All three judges who considered the appeal were in agreement that Schultes had not erred, and the appeal was dismissed. “Mr. Careen sent text messages to (the girl) which either expressly or by implication invited her to engage in sexual activity with him. On the totality of the evidence, it was open to the trial judge to infer that Mr. Careen intended to persuade (the teen) to engage in sexual activity with him; in other words, to infer that Mr. Careen meant what he said,” stated Justice David Frankel.

saying no evidence or argument had been presented during the trial to indicate that Careen had asked the student to touch herself. In the appeal, Careen said Schultes was wrong in granting the amendment and, therefore, the verdict was unreasonable. He also stated that the judge had erred when he said the teen had taken the suggestive text messages “very seriously.” Careen argued that the girl had not taken him seriously and he was “merely engaging in jovial dirty talk or banter without intending to be

There won’t be any special Christmas present for truckers who use the tolled Port Mann Bridge. Tr a n s p o r t a t i o n Investment Corp. officials have decided against offering any further reform to the tolls to provide a break to big rigs. They had been considering offering truckers a monthly pass similar to the one for regular cars that would give them unlimited use for a flat fee. “There will be no change for trucks,” TI Corp. spokesman Greg Johnson said. Talk of changes came in the fall after New Westminster councillors called for lower Port Mann truck tolls so fewer trucks divert to the free Pattullo Bridge and congest their streets. Heavy trucks will continue to pay $9 per crossing. Unlike regular vehicles, most of which

still have a half price discount on their $3 tolls until Jan. 1, there was no early adoption incentive for trucks. But Johnson noted truckers do have a permanent 50 per cent toll discount if they use the bridge at night. He said trucks going

between Langley and Vancouver are already saving 30 minutes in travel time after the new bridge opened. That time saving climbs to one hour as the rest of the newly built lanes west of the bridge open by

Christmas, he said, adding the cost savings from reaching destinations sooner will exceed what they spend on the toll. Johnson said truck traffic on the Port Mann is up 25 per cent from December of last year.

UFV students conduct market research for Heat There’s more than one reason to attend a hockey game. And there’s lots of competition for people’s attention and money when it comes to choosing how to spend leisure time. The marketing team at the Abbotsford Heat hockey club knows this, and were happy to recently tap into some student brain power when they worked with University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) business students to find out what would inspire people who had attended a Heat game to continue coming out, and what would draw new customers. “The students’ research assignment was designed to help our client, the Abbotsford Heat, understand their fans’ entertainment experience and expectations. The goal was to help the Heat organization enhance the fans’ in-stadium entertainment experience,” said David Dobson, instructor for the Business 320 research methods course. The Abbotsford Heat is an American Hockey League club and the farm team of the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League. The five student groups each conducted primary and secondary research into what motivates Heat fans. Secondary research included using the UFV Library to consult journal articles and other resources about the business and psychology of sports marketing. Primary research included customer surveys and focus groups. The assignment culminated in a competition between the five student groups, with each group taking turns presenting to members of the Abbotsford Heat marketing team, including senior manager of marketing and sales Roxann Bury, VP business operations and communications Adam Fritz, and director of ticket sales and service Jesse Maxson. Bury said she enjoyed working with the students. “They reinforced a lot of what we’re currently working on, such as enhancing our website, and they also gave us

good, solid facts that we can build on,” she said. “I love working with students. They were unbiased, and motivated by their desire to get a good grade and work with an ac-

tual client. I think that maybe the fans they surveyed were more honest with the students than they might have been if it was us surveying them directly. And it’s great to

hear from the different mindsets. Some of the students were also parents, and there were different ethnicities represented, so it was good to hear their perspectives.”

The group that won the competition — consisting of Sangram Singh, Jennifer Clary, Madison MacAulay, Albiona Mjekiqi, Akershit Sharma — went the extra mile

by not just researching improvements, but suggesting how to implement them, even showing up with a branded Heat in Your Seat cushion that they envisioned

hockey moms taking to their kids’ games and thus spreading brand awareness. The top two teams received prizes including gift cards, Heat toques, and Heat tickets.

nity,” said Howell. “I know I’m not alone in that perception, but it turns out I was wrong. First of all, the money that is raised in my community stays in my community where it is used to address local needs such as providing affordable housing, improving early childhood education or tackling the many issues that surround homelessness. “Secondly, and this is really important, the money isn’t being spent on administrative costs for some big organization trying to deliver a one size fits all program. “Quite the opposite is true. United Way partners with local grassroots organizations—the kind that are at the heart of every one of our communities—and supports them in responding to the specific needs of people in their area.” Prospera employees have been coordinating United Way workplace campaigns for more than eight years and have raised more than $500,000.

Prospera Credit Union’s 430 employees have raised $83,152 for the United Way (UW) during this year’s campaign. In addition to the financial institution’s fundraising success, for the fourth year in a row the credit union had the opportunity to sponsor a community representative to assist the United Way in its campaign efforts. During the three months of the campaign, Prospera’s s p o n s o re d rep, Imraan Gazdar, visited organizations of all sizes and to share information about the programs and services supported by UW funding. Prospera president and CEO Bruce Howell also served as campaign cabinet cochair for UW. “I didn’t understand how United Way operates.

Christmas trees can be disposed of at curbside or facility Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Residents who favour real Christmas trees have the option of composting them after the holidays.

Trees can be disposed of via the curbside yard waste compostable collection program by cutting the tree into sections and placing it in a yard waste can, or tied

into bundles according to curbside collection requirements. Trees can also be dropped off for a mini-

mum donation of $2 per tree at the Net Zero Waste Abbotsford Composting Facility, located at 5050

Gladwin Road. All donations will go to the Abbotsford Food Bank. Those with questions about the dispos-

al of Christmas trees and other compostable waste at the facility can call 604-557-7065. For questions about

using the curbside collection program, check www.abbotsford.ca/ engineering, or call 604-864-5514.

Holidays a good time to speak about diversity T

but the parents don’t. If this is the case, it’s important for the children to stand up and correct their parents in how their family can become more welcoming in establishing cross-cultural relationships. Communication is often the key element to breaking down these barriers. In the spirit of celebration and giving, it’s also a beautiful time to develop diverse friendships. One of the

things that often surprise me is I rarely see people from different backgrounds walking together in our community. And if I do, it sure brings a smile to my face. For how large our multicultural community is, I should be witnessing this more often. I recall growing up in the area and it would be a common occurrence to see many people from our diverse population together. So, why the drastic shift? Well,

there are many theories and one is parents sometimes have influences on their children on who they can keep as their friends. I know it’s hard to imagine, but it’s real and must change. Segregating on racial profiling is not how cultural diversity is celebrated. A few of the students who wrote into the Abbotsford News School Diversity Essay Contest, which we held recently, shared some examples of isolation occurring at their schools in how students interact with

each other. In this day and age, there is simply no excuse, not to have a diverse group of friends. If your son or daughter doesn’t have a diverse circle of friends, maybe it’s time to sit down and discuss how Ken this can encouraged.

here is no better time than the Christmas season to have wonderful discussions as family members from near and far gather to enjoy the festive time. As the New Year approaches, parents should take the time to speak to their children about how beneficial it is to celebrate diversity outside of their own culture and vice versa. In some families, the children understand it,

Abby golfer earns Web.com Tour exemptions

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Nick Taylor will be back home in Abbotsford for Christmas, and he’s already got the gift he wanted most. The 25-year-old pro golfer is the proud owner of a shiny new Web.com Tour card, by virtue of a terrific performance at the final stage of Q-School this past week. Taylor was among a field of 150 golfers competing at PGA West’s TPC Stadium and Nicklaus courses in La Quinta, Calif., chasing exemptions for the 2014 season which would be awarded to the top 45 golfers (plus ties). Taylor excelled throughout the Q-School marathon –  he wasn’t over par in any of the six rounds, and finished tied for 11th at 19 under par. That means he’s earned exemptions through the first eight events next season on the Web.com Tour, which is one step below the PGA Tour.

DAN KINVIG Abbotsford News file photo

Abbotsford golfer Nick Taylor will start next season on the Web.com Tour after a stellar Q-School showing. Taylor was one stroke back of a top-10 finish, which would have yielded an additional four tournament exemptions. But it’s hard

to find fault with his performance during Tuesday’s final round –  on one of the most pressure-packed days of his career, he carded a

bogey-free, five-under 67 and ended up as the top Canadian in the field. “It wasn’t a huge deal (to finish just outside the top 10),� Taylor told The News on Wednesday, noting that he can extend his exempt status by playing well over the first eight events.  “Obviously the difference between 45th and 46th is much bigger. “I’m excited to get out there and play new golf courses, travel, and see what my game shows out there.� Taylor joins fellow Abbotsford native Adam Hadwin on the Web. com Tour next season. Hadwin, heading into his third season on the circuit, is fully exempt by virtue of his top-75 money list finish in 2013. Following a break over Christmas and New Year’s, Taylor will fly down to Phoenix in midJanuary to begin preparations for the Web.com Tour season, which begins in February.

The Utica Comets beat the Abbotsford Heat for the third consecutive time.

Comets knock off Heat

The Abbotsford Heat have been flying high atop the AHL standings for the better part of the season, but they seem to have a terrible time with the team at the bottom. The Utica Comets, the Vancouver Canucks’ affiliate, won their third straight head-to-head meeting with the Heat, knocking off the Abby squad 4-2 on Wednesday at Utica Memorial Auditorium. The Heat, in fairness, were missing leading scorer Ben Street (flu) and red-hot left winger Michael Ferland (lower body injury), but Sven Baertschi, recently reassigned to the AHL club by the Calgary Flames, made his debut. Baertschi didn’t dent the scoresheet, though –  he registered two shots on goal and a -1 rating. The Comets, meanwhile, raced out to a quick 2-0 lead on goals by Kellan Lain and Patrick Mullen, resulting in Heat goalie Joni Ortio getting the hook for the first time this season. He was replaced by Joey MacDonald at the 16:16 mark of the first period.

Brett Olson drew the Heat to within a goal at 7:13 of the second, but Mullen notched his second of the game on a power play later in the frame. Utica’s Alex Biega scored an emptynetter with 58 seconds remaining in the third, and Heat defenceman Brady Lamb rounded out the scoring with a late man-advantage marker. Comets goalie Joacim Eriksson picked up the win with a 26-save performance. The Comets (9-15-2, 20 points) are still in last place overall despite the victory, while the Heat (20-8-2, 42 points) now find themselves dislodged from their first-place perch in both the Western Conference and AHL overall standings. The Grand Rapids Griffins (20-52), one of their conference rivals, are tied with Abbotsford with 42 points, but the Griffins have three games in hand. The Eastern Conference-leading Manchester Monarchs (19-5-5, 43 points) are in first overall. The Heat and Comets clash once again on Friday in Utica.

The Abbotsford Community Services (ACS) Christmas dinner drew more than 200 guests, the majority of them children. The event brought together immigrant families in Abbotsford in a celebration of Canadian Christmas culture, explained settlement services manager Donna Lo. It was initially created by the Hands Up Committee five years ago, and the community organization continues to sponsor it to this date, alongside ACS and the Abbotsford school district. The dinner was also a unique opportunity for some immigrant families to experience their first turkey dinner. “We thought if we created a venue, then they can meet other immigrant families and create a network,” said Lo. Children aged four months to 12 years received a gift from Santa. A total of 102 gifts were distributed.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Visit our photo galleries at DrivewayBC.ca

Santa looking to swap outdated ride for super economy sleigh NORTH POLE - Driveway can exclusively reveal that Santa Claus has been visiting local dealerships kicking tires—ahem, rails—in his search for a new ride. Ever conscious of the increasing cost of gas and effect his multi-million-kilometre Christmas flight has on the environment, Santa seems to have opted for 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon for his next sleigh. The wagon promises a fuel economy of 7.84 L/100 kms fuel economy,which means the sleigh will be kinder to the environment than his current means of transporting gifts to the world’s children. As an added benefit, the EcoBoost engine – which is finely tuned for high-speed performance – would offer speeds much faster than Santa ever travelled in his former 36-hoofpowered sleigh. The expected upgrade comes as a record number of children earn spots on the “nice” list, increasing the payload weight of his bag of gifts beyond the normal tow rating of his nine-reindeer team. Santa told me that changing his mode of transportation will not compromise his ability to remain true to his mission. “My goal is and always has been

allow him to keep a close eye on his gifts in the second and third row. From its 60/40 three-passenger second-row bench seat through fold-flat second- and third-row seating with third-row independent fore-and-aft sliding capability, the wagon quickly adapts to accommodate multiple combinations of elves and presents. The MyKey programmable ignition key restricts maximum speed should a mischievous elf get behind the wheel while Claus is down a chimney leaving gifts. With eight cupholders, Claus and his elves would have plenty of space to take along a few glasses of milk as they continue through their busy night. Rain-sensing wipers would keep Claus on the move, as there’s always a chance he’ll encounter nasty weather. “As always, we are busy making toys and checking long lists,” says Santa. “That said, Merry Christmas to all!” Of course, Mrs. Claus will have the final say on this purchase because, as any dealership owner will tell you, women make the final decision in 80 per cent of new vehicle purchases. Keep your eyes peeled Tuesday night to see if Santa got his Christmas wish.

Fuel economy numbers are; 5.7 L: 14.2/10.5 L/100 km (city/highway) 4.6 L: 11.0/13.6 L/100 km (city/highway) Driver and front passenger airbags, roll-sensing, head/ side curtain and front mounted side airbags, and the first 1/2 ton pickup to include driver and front passenger knee airbags. Toyota’s star safety system includes electronic brake force distribution, smart stop technology, anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability control, and active traction control. The side mirrors have the blind spot monitor system that detects a vehicle in your blind spot. The ride was a perfect combination of on-road comfort and off-road toughness. The truck has exceptional steering response and firm enough not to nose dive in the corners. The seats are spacious and very comfortable; I compare it to a living room couch with seat belts. It has a very quiet cabin, which I found to be true with the previous model, with very little road noise. I am happy they continued with the larger oversized buttons and knobs, which you can operate while wearing gloves. With the popularity of the Tundra growing, I can easily see the two-millionth truck roll out before the next design change.

bers up to 200,000 units. On September 18, 2013, the one-millionth truck, a Sunset Bronze Mica colored, 1794 Edition Tundra, rolled out. This truck has a completely new body design with an aggressive grille that extends from the bumper to the raised hood. The fender flares are larger and more defined, and the tailgate has Tundra stamped into the sheet metal. The top of the line Western themed 1794 Edition comes with a unique chrome grille and chrome and silver bumper. It’s almost like a large belt buckle! The inside screams country music with its exclusive premium saddle tan brown leather seats with embossed and suede accents. Softtouch materials are found on the center console, the front and rear door trim, and the instrument panel. Rich maple wood-grain covers the steering wheel, dash and shifter. Big improvement to the back seat of the Double Cab and Crew Max where a 60/40 split bench flips up

drivewayBC.ca Subaru Forester 2009 to 2012: A dependable ride mechanical dependability and the Subaru essentials are packaged with a practical, utilitarian body. Compared to the previous generation Forester, the ’09 came with a new chassis

with a wider track and a longer wheelbase (by 9 cm), plus a new double wishbone rear suspension. The structural changes also yielded extra cargo space and more rear passenger head and legroom. The single overhead camshaft base engine can produce 170-horsepower and fuel economy is rated at 10.6/7.5 L/100 km (city/ highway). While reliable, it’s no rocket and flat-out acceleration to 100 km/ hour takes more than 10 seconds. Agile handling does help compensate for tame straight-line speed. A turbocharged variant has twin-camshafts and can produce 224-horsepower. However, it likes premium fuel and consumes 10.9/8.3 L/100 km (city/highway). Manual transmission models have an electronic “hill holder” feature. When stopped on an incline this feature delays release of the foot brake to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward and gives the driver more time to achieve a smooth take-off. The automatic option was a conventional four-speed. Forester got top marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in its rollover test. The roof is more than double the strength required by U.S. federal safety standards. In addition to all-wheel-drive system, a Forester comes with anti-lock brakes and an electronic stability control system called Vehicle Dynamics Control. It also provides what Subaru describes as a ‘virtual’ limited slip rear differential function. The 2009 Forester was offered in four trim levels; 2.5X, 2.5X Touring Package, 2.5X Limited and a 2.5XT Limited model with a turbocharged engine. Even a base Forester 2.5X comes well equipped with heated seats, air conditioning, power windows and mirrors, roof rails, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio controls. A new PZEV (partial-zero-emissions-vehicle) edition of Forester was added for the 2010 model year. Emissions are about 90 per cent lower than most (2010) vehicles, according to Subaru. In 2011, the base 2.5-litre boxer engine got a double overhead camshaft upgrade, plus new bore and stroke dimensions. While maximum output remained at about the same level, more power is available at a lower rpm and fuel economy improved. The reliable Subaru Forester is a very impressive blend of utility, comfort, handling and fuel efficiency in a compact package.

Charging ahead with plug in hybrids and all-electric cars Keith Morgan

The future of cars may be electric but do not expect 2014 to be the dawn of the new age. In fact, I predict there’s a long road ahead for manufacturers trying to woo the driving public into buying a car with a chord attached.

Throw in the sales numbers for all-electric cars, plug-in hybrids and gas-battery hybrids and they don’t come anywhere near five per cent of total vehicle sales. The commercial conundrum is that these (more) eco-friendly vehicles come with a premium sticker price beyond most folks and

all on. If gas prices soar then some more buyers will go the hybrid route but that said there are an awful lot of

most sales. I am not an electric car naysayer, far from it, but we have to recognize that much needs to happen before the majority buy into this future. Sticker price is

one thing but the single biggest challenge has to be the slow pace of infrastructure to fast-charge cars, whose batteries have run down mid-journey. ‘Range anxiety’ is a major

mental obstacle for those with the resources to contemplate the purchase of an all-electric car such as the Nissan Leaf or Mitsubishi iMIEV. For that reason, it seems likely that the likes

of the Chevrolet VOLT will enjoy more sales success as a main means of transport because an on-board gas-powered generator is ready to kick in to recharge the battery when the juice

But back to the thorny issue of infrastructure. Many advocates want government to play a lead role but with all the demands made on the public pure that’s a dead end street. Maybe the tax incentives they can offer will encourage the private sector. For instance, the Canadian company Sun Country Highway has announced plans for a charging station network along the length of the Trans-Canada Highway. Other companies operating alongside major highways are extracting planning concessions from local government by installing recharging points. Hats off to BMW and its holistic approach. The German giant is collaborating with small tech companies, who will work with customers to make sure their homes don’t require a major power refit just to own one of the new i3s. And, as Dr. Ian Robertson, a BMW management board member, told me at the LA Auto Show recently there are many other power opportunities right in front our eyes. Urban areas are awash with street lights, which could be used as a source for curbside recharging. He also pointed out that there are many discontinued public phone sites in today’s cities. They have power wired to them and are ready to be tapped, should the phone company want to make a profit of more than a quarter per call. kmorgan@blackpress.ca

And it’s the one that should be at the top of everyone’s list: Slow down.” A close second, he mentioned, is, “Practise looking ahead.” “One of the things that you should be doing when you’re driving in slippery conditions is break down the jobs your tire has to do.” He expands, “If you need to brake for a corner, make sure that you brake in a straight line before the corner so that you have all the available grip for slowing the car.”

Mahler continued, “Traction essentially depends on the tire’s rubber conforming to the tiny, minute, irregularities in the pavement… If the rubber gets too hard, it just can’t do that, so it slips. Meaning, it’s not just for snow and ice, but also for cold pavement.” And while one might be tempted to put the twin turbochargers to good use in adverse conditions, Mahler advised against it. Before I fired up the beast, I asked Mahler for some tips for all drivers. He responded thusly: “It’s a

He is currently the owner and chief instructor of Max Performance Driving and is the director of Bridgestone’s Canadian Winter Driver Training program. He says, “As the temperatures drop, all-season tires get firmer and the rubber hardens up. Winter tires don’t harden up. And that’s the big difference.”

The Two Twin-scroll Turbochargers (BMW’s TwinPower Turbo Technology) along with a 4.4L, V8 generates 552 horsepower of gargantuan fun. But that smile can be turned upside down quickly if it starts to snow. Does that mean you need to park this potent piece of German engineering until

the spring? Not at all. Granted, the “M” badge symbolizes that this 4-door coupe has a healthy dose of the German automaker’s renowned performance and it means it has a rear-wheel drive configuration. Other 6 Series nameplates without the M designation (whether the Cabriolet, Coupe or Gran Coupe) come with the xDrive all-wheel drive system.

AMC: Gone but not forgotten designs

The introduction of the Ford Mustang in April 1964 caught most of the competition flatfooted. Like its similarly fishy competition from Plymouth, the Barracuda, it had a bit of a makeshift appearance with a strange fastback grafted on to an existing design. It gave way to the much prettier (and far less weird) Javelin in 1968.

2. 1975-80 Pacer: The Pacer may well be one of the strangest cars ever to come from a U.S. manufacturer. Built to house GM’s stillborn rotary engine, it made due mostly with AMC’s ancient 258 cid

American Motors was among the first of the U.S. automakers to see the value in trying to compete with foreign companies who were beginning to send large numbers of small cars into the United States by the 1950s. The Metropolitan was a tiny VW Beetle fighter that came in hardtop and convertible body styles. A bit of a “if you

AMC had a wonderful history of talented designers making due with miniscule budgets, which often meant new models were slice-and-dice versions of older models. And so it was with the Gremlin, which was basically a truncated AMC Hornet. The advertising of the day even made light of this fact with a commercial in which a grizzled gas station attendant looked quizzically at a Gremlin and asked the owner, “Where’s the rest of your car, toots?” 4. 1980-88 Eagle: The Eagle was perhaps AMC’s most brilliant mash-up of existing parts, marrying a drivetrain from its Jeep division with the AMC Concord wagon to create the first successful massproduced four-wheel-drive passenger car. The Concord wagon-based cars still turn up in places like Colorado

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the end of the American Motors Corporation as a truly American enterprise. In 1983, Renault of France bought a controlling interest in the company, bringing to an end some of the most stunning shoestring budget innovation that the American auto industry had ever seen. Here are five of our favorite oddball AMCs:
