Fourth councillor quits slate

Luck joins council members now sitting independently Carol Aun MISSION RECORD

The majority of Mission council members now sit as independents, after a fourth resigned from the

political slate under which all were elected in 2011. Coun. Tony Luck, who announced his resignation from the Citizens Responsible

for Municipal Government (CRMG) by email on Wednesday night, is the latest to leave, following closely behind Couns. Jenny Stevens and Jeff Jewell, who

broke from the group late last month. Coun. Nelson Tilbury has not been a part of CRMG since September 2012. In a public statement, Luck cited an

“irreconcilable split of CRMG” and a lack of confidence in the mayor’s leadership as reasons for his departure. Last month, Tilbury suggested that Coun.

Dave Hensman may have been in a conflict of interest for holding a lease on a property near the former Buy Low building on Welton Street which

was purchased by the district in December as part of a downtown revitalization initiative. Hensman was part of a unanimous CONTINUED ON 3

Burnaby hang glider sentenced to five months for death of passenger Mario Bartel BLACK PRESS

A Burnaby man whose negligence while piloting a passenger on a hang gliding flight in Agassiz caused her to fall to her death has been sentenced to five months in jail. Jon Orders, who’s originally from New Zealand, had earlier pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal negligence causing death after Lenami GodinezAvila, a 27-year-old from Mexico, plummeted 300 metres during a tandem flight from Mount Woodside just before noon April 28, 2012. Orders was also charged with obstruction of justice after he swallowed a memory card from a video camera that recorded the incident, but that charge was stayed. The card was eventually recovered and its contents were described during the court hear-

ing Feb. 7 when Orders pleaded guilty. The flight was Godinez-Avila’s first, a gift from her boyfriend who was watching from the ground. Shortly after taking off, Orders realized something had gone wrong and his passenger was slipping out of her harness. He tried to hang on to her but she fell to the ground. Her body was found later that night. Shortly after the incident, Orders made a public apology and vowed he’d never hang glide again. The Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association of Canada, which also investigated the incident, said it was the first time such a fatality had occurred in Canada. It found Godinez-Avila’s harness had not been connected to the glider at takeoff and Orders had failed to perform a pre-launch readiness assessment. A report

Jon Orders prepares to sign papers at the Chilliwack Law Courts on Monday afternoon. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS released by the association four months after the accident suggested “multiple distractions” may have contributed to the oversights. As part of his sentence, Orders will also be on probation for three years during

which he’ll be prohibited from hang gliding. He’ll also have to educate others about hang gliding safety. The hang gliding association had already suspended Orders’ certification as an instructor.

Final phase of prep for the Games Carol Aun MISSION RECORD

Young athletes from across the province will be arriving in Mission for the BC Winter Games in just five days. Excitement is starting to build, said Pam Alexis, vice-president of the Mission 2014 BC Winter Games, who has spent two years preparing for the four-day event. In the final week before the welcome mats are rolled out, the Games committee members are meeting daily and putting final touches on preparations. Almost 2,000 volunteers have signed up to help, and at last count, there are 1,881 athletes, coaches, and officials coming to Mission for the Games. The large tent at Mission Raceway Park is being constructed

this week, along with the stages, and volunteers will begin transforming nine schools into sleeping dorms when students are dismissed from schools on Wednesday. Mission schools will be closed for classes during the Games on Thursday and Friday. The results centre will be built on Wednesday as well. Three thousand sleeping mats, hundreds of signs, maps and pieces of sporting equipment, as well as other supplies are slowly leaving the Games warehouse and being set up at venues across Mission and surrounding communities. Food services director, chef Peter Bucher, and his teams of six chefs are also ready to prepare the 25,000 meals that will be eaten over the four-day period.

Heritage Park Centre will be the centre for meals, and can seat up to 500 athletes per sitting. Volunteers will also be preparing thousands of boxed lunches every day which will be delivered to all 14 sites hosting a sport. The focus this week, however, is on processing volunteers and making sure everyone has their badge and schedule. There are also training sessions every night this week for volunteers. “So many people have come together to make the event happen,” said Alexis. “Mission has a history of volunteerism; it’s one of our greatest strengths. “We’re as ready as we can be.” For more information, see the special section on the 2014 BC Winter Games in this edition.

Mission BC Winter Games vice-president Pam Alexis watches a crew put up the big tent at Mission Raceway Park which will hold the opening and closing ceremonies. She is ready to welcome thousands of visitors to the CAROL AUN PHOTO community next week.

Only mayor will chair six council committees Carol Aun MISSION RECORD

The mayor will be the only chair at the district’s committee of the whole meetings, starting Monday. The change, which was recommended in Mission’s 2012 Core Services Review, was made by Mayor Ted Adlem and announced earlier this week. How-

ever, not all councillors were pleased with the adjustment. In the past, each councillor is assigned one of six portfolios and handed the gavel when items related to their departments are up for discussion. The six committees are: corporate services; development services; engineering and public

works; forestry; parks, recreation and culture; and public safety and health. Coun. Jenny Stevens said she was “a bit stunned” to hear about the change to the chair, noting council rejected that suggestion more than a year and a half ago after some debate. She said that decision was made because hav-

ing a portfolio assigned to a councillor is less pressure for department heads, who only had to deal with one councillor. Councillors typically review reports from their department in detail and can help answer questions when they chair that portion of the meeting, Stevens said.

“Without a portfolio, directors may get seven of us (asking questions).” Last month, Stevens had suggested shuffling the portfolios, but said she never intended to have them abolished. She plans to have the issue discussed at the next meeting on Feb. 17. The portfolios were mayoral assignments,

said Adlem, who maintained most municipalities operate with one chair throughout the meeting, and the change would encourage councillors to familiarize themselves with every department, not just the one they are assigned. Legislation does not require council members to be assigned a

departmental portfolio as chairs or liaisons, and best governance principles do not promote this practice, according to a press release from the district. Coun. Larry Nundal also believes the change is positive. “It broadens everybody’s perspective, so we don’t focus on one area.”

‘If you don’t get your way, will you jump ship?’ FROM 1

council vote to approve that purchase. The four independently sitting councillors, Luck, Tilbury, Jewell, and Stevens, voted to refer the matter to B.C. Supreme Court, but Coun. Larry Nundal, Hensman and Mayor Ted Adlem voted against the motion which failed because a two-thirds majority is dictated in these cases by the provincial Community Charter, which also requires all council members to vote. “What has now become clear to me is that my major issue, beyond the (alleged) conflict of interest

matter itself, is how it was seriously mishandled by the mayor, and more broadly with the mayor’s leadership in general,” Luck says in his email statement. “Another major problem has been the mayor’s temper and disrespect exhibited numerous times to members of the public, staff and council,” stated Luck, who maintained the mayor’s attitude did not change after the issue was discussed. Nundal told The Record on Thursday that the mayor “could have done a better job” in a couple of incidents, but he is providing this community with good leadership.

“He’s not perfect, neither am I or anyone else on council.” “(Adlem) is very hard-working and works 100 per cent for the community. It’s as

events have caused some frustrations. “I don’t disrespect what they did, but if you don’t get your way, will you jump ship?” Nundal asked. “We

I still think (a political slate) is a good idea, but it may be ahead of its time here. COUN. LUCK simple as that,” Nundal continued. “He has principles and values too.” Nundal says he’s not surprised to hear Luck has left CRMG, and acknowledged recent

have a right to vote and use our judgments.” The councillors who voted to send the alleged conflict of interest to court can still do so, Nundal explained. “If they

think it’s a strong case, they have options … to pursue it in court.” The Community Charter allows a group of 10 people on the voters list to take the matter to court on their own. Nundal said he voted against referring the issue to court because he didn’t want to spend $60,000 to $100,000 on a “losing proposition.” Although all council members were elected under the same banner, Nundal says they are all independent with their thoughts and votes, and doesn’t expect that to change on council. “We were never a voting block to begin

with,” he said. “We don’t consider ourselves to be a political party … We have to do municipal business. That’s the most important thing.” Luck says he will continue to work with council to serve the citizens of Mission, but could not run again under CRMG. CRMG is the first political slate in Mission, but the idea is not new, said Luck. “If you work as a slate, you can get a number of like-minded people together and pool resources.” However, Luck believes CRMG was flawed from the beginning because directors

were running for office. The board of directors should hold the politicians accountable, he said. “I still think (a political slate) is a good idea, but it may be ahead of its time here.” Adlem said there are others interested in running under the CRMG banner in this year’s municipal election in November. He was surprised to hear of Luck’s resignation when contacted by The Record Thursday morning, and didn’t offer further comment. “I will make a statement about everyone’s departure later,” said Adlem, who was on his way to a meeting.

Patient Testimonial

Ten years ago, I decided to have a dental implant rather than a bridge. Bridges can be hard to clean and can break down over time. I made an appointment with Dr. Lui and found the implant procedure virtually painless. My dental implant was problem free so, five years later, I had another implant placed by Dr. Lui. I have no discomfort, I can eat anything and the implants are easy to brush - just like normal teeth! I have complete confidence in Dr. Lui. His rates are fair and I know he keeps up-to-date with the latest technology and equipment. I highly recommend Dr. Lui to anyone considering having tooth replacement with a dental implant.

The West Heights Grocery Store was robbed at gunpoint by two men Saturday night. According to police, the men entered the store, located in the 7400 block of Wren Street, around 6 p.m. and pointed handguns at the owner. The suspects took several cartons of cigarettes and a small amount of cash before fleeing eastbound in a vehicle that was waiting for them south of the store on Wren Street. A third suspect was driving the getaway vehicle, said police. The first two suspects were both wearing dark hoodies with the hoods up and bala-

clavas. The suspect vehicle is described as a late 1990s grey twodoor Honda. Investigators are looking into links between this incident and similar robberies that recently took place at a local motel and pub. On Feb. 3, the two suspects robbed the Mission Motor Inn. Just before 8 p.m., two males wearing bandanas across their faces entered the motel, located in the 34400block of Lougheed Highway. Both had handguns, said Mission RCMP Sgt. Shaun Wright, and one of the suspects pointed it at the clerk demanding money. The employee ran out the front door

into the parking lot, and both suspects fled. The first suspect is a fair-skinned white male, 5’8” tall, heavy set with a shaved head, chubby cheeks and blue eyes. He is in his mid-20s, has a raspy voice and was wearing a black hoodie with a white design on the front. The other male is between 5’11” and 6’, in his mid-20s, slender, with black hair and sideburns, wearing a red parka-style jacket and a toque. Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 if you wish to remain anonymous.

Family fun day Transit changes coming A review is taking place next month Carol Aun

MISSION RECORD

The District of Mission celebrated Family Day at the Leisure Centre Monday, with reduced rates on activities, and a number of other fun items, such as a bouncy castle. Face painting was also very popular as a long line stretched past the face painting table. Here, the finishing touches are put on five-year-old Grace’s design. BOB FRIESEN PHOTO

Fine amnesty day in honour of Marion Sharpe Mission Library is hosting a fines amnesty day where library customers can return their overdue books to library staff and have their fines waved. This event is in honour of former head librarian Marion Sharpe’s recent passing and will be held Feb. 26 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Mission Community Archives will be putting on a poster display of Sharpe’s life from 2 to 4 p.m. The display will include information on Sharpe’s involvement with the community, including her

work with the Mission Historical Society. Fine amnesty day only applies only to overdue materials returned to library staff. It does not apply to any other location in the Fraser Valley Regional Library system. Library materials must be returned to library staff at a service desk. Fines will not be waived if late items are returned through the book drop. The amnesty will not apply to previous late fees on the account nor on billed items. Sharpe passed away Jan. 15. She was passionate about

books and the library. She was the Head Librarian at the then termed Mission Centennial Library when Mission Library was in a different building for more than 16 years. She spent years working for the Fraser Valley Regional Library at the Mission branch. She was not only involved in the volunteer group, Mission Friends of the Library, but was also a charter member of the organization. Mission Library is located on 33247 Second Ave. Call 604-8266610 for more information.

A new bus stop and pullout will be built on the north side of the Lougheed Highway near the intersection of Haig Street to enhance transit service to the Mission Hills Mall. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is funding the $30,000 project which is being constructed on its right of way. A bus shelter will be added when the pullout is finished. Currently, the number 32 bus with service to the Mission Hills Mall turns off the Lougheed Highway and onto Logan Avenue to turn around. The new stop will streamline the system in that corridor, said

Mission Mayor Ted Adlem. “It makes more sense,” Adlem added. “Not many people were getting on and off at the MCC (Logan Avenue stop).” The change is intended to provide better service and save riders some time, although that’s to be determined. “This will be safer for the bus too,” he said. The route changes are expected to take place in late August, said Mike Younie, Mission’s director of planning. A transit review is taking place next month, Younie noted. There will be presentations, surveys and a chance for residents to offer input into the proposed transit changes.

OTHER SUGGESTED TRANSIT CHANGES IN MISSION: • eliminate the number 40 East Mission night bus; • introduce express trips on the number 31 Abbotsford-Mission route at peak commuter times for more direct service; • the number 33 Cedar Valley bus will not go to the Junction Mall to avoid duplicating service provided by the number 31. The number 33 bus will also operate during evenings and Sundays. Dates and times for the presentations have not yet been set. The complete report on the proposed transit routes is available at transitbc.com/transitfuture/ cfv_latestupdates.cfm.

Spell of the Olympic Games

As the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia heads into its second week, the narrative is sounding awfully familiar. Remember all those horror stories about costs run amok, facilities unfinished or not up to snuff, unseasonably mild weather, displaced and displeased citizens, stray dogs being dispatched? Hmmm, rewind the clock four years, and we might be talking about Vancouver. Minus the stray dogs part. Or eight years ago in Turin, Italy. Winter or Summer, the script for every Olympic Games seems to be coming from the same writer. It’s already being composed for Rio de Janeiro in 2016, where slums have been razed to make way for sporting facilities and workers have died building those venues. But the crazy thing about the Olympics, and the trump card the International Olympic Committee carries in its back pocket, nuzzled up against the vast wealth it amasses

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

by governing the Olympic movement, is as soon as the spotlights illuminate the ever-kitchy opening ceremonies, and the first competitors enter the starting gates, all the collateral drama is forgotten. When it comes to the Olympics, we just can’t help ourselves falling in love all over again. Especially when the memories of being a host city are still so fresh. Maybe it’s the sheer volume of Olympic hype and coverage that overwhelms us every couple of years. Maybe we’re just suckers for the human interest stories and athletic dramas that are played out on the ski slopes, ice rinks and running tracks. Maybe we’re just looking for the chance to show our patriotism without feeling self-conscious. Whatever fuels your Olympic spirit, enjoy the ride. The cynics will be back next time round. - Black Press

Prescription pot pretense ending Tom Fletcher

B.C. Views VICTORIA – On April 1, medical marijuana growing licences expire across the country, and only licensed commercial growers will be able to legally fill a prescription for pot. Ottawa is moving to clean up the mess it created by issuing medical licences all over the country. Since then, municipalities have complained that small-scale medical licences have been greatly exceeded, with many used as fronts for a criminal drug trade that has made B.C. infamous around the world. How big is the problem? There are about 38,000 Canadians licensed to carry marijuana for medical purposes, and half of them live in B.C. Their permission to grow their own or buy it from designated small-scale growers is withdrawn in a couple of months. Here’s a look at the community level. Police in the Fraser Valley suburb of Maple Ridge estimate that it alone has 500 properties

licensed to grow pot. No, Maple Ridge is not a world hotspot for glaucoma or arthritis. It is historically known for its secluded properties and as a base for B.C.’s prison system and the province’s Hells Angels. Police have only an estimate because Ottawa’s bungled medical pot scheme conceals the location of licensed growers from provincial and local governments. RCMP Insp. Dave Fleugel told Maple Ridge council last week that his detachment will first target medical growers  they know are linked to organized crime. But it’s difficult to determine which are legal and which are not. “This has the potential to cripple the courts,” Fleugel said. “Something is going to have to take a back seat if we are going to go after all of them.” The police and fire department have proposed an amnesty or grace period, allowing people to disclose their location and have it properly dismantled without penalty, to help deal with the volume. This mess was created by Ottawa in response to a court ruling that forced them to make medical pot available. The Harper government remains trapped in a failed war-on-drugs mentality that prevents any

innovation or even common sense. Then there is the circus in Vancouver, where self-styled princes of pot exploit the confusion of the medical marijuana law to

There are about 38,000 Canadians licensed to carry marijuana for medical purposes ... run an Amsterdam-style retail trade. Cannabis Culture, the pot and propaganda empire built by Marc Emery before he was jailed in the U.S., rants about the government’s “war on patients,” amid garish ads for “pot by post” and exotic weed varieties. “By Health Canada’s own estimate, the cost will increase from $5 per gram to $8.80 per gram – going up by nearly 400 per cent,” its website warns. Apparently smoking lots of weed really is bad for your math skills. Dana Larsen, who spearheaded the ill-con-

ceived and failed decriminalization petition last year, heads up the serious-looking “Medical Cannabis Dispensary.” It has done so well at its location in the drug bazaar of East Hastings Street that it’s got a branch office on Vancouver’s west side. Its official-looking forms have a long list of conditions where only a confirmation of diagnosis is required. In addition to genuine conditions such as side effects of chemotherapy, it includes anxiety, psoriasis, spinal cord injury and even “substance addictions/ withdrawal.” And did you know you can get a vet’s note to buy medical pot for your pet? Larsen has boasted about the exotic offerings of his stores, including “watermelon hash oil” at $150 for 2.5 grams. Wow man, that’s like 400 million per cent higher! Fittingly, this farce goes back underground on April Fool’s Day. Medical users can only order shipments from an approved commercial producer.

YOUR VIEWS

Demand better policies instead of blaming unions Re: End this bloody B.C. school war, Feb. 7 edition. Once again, I read with some humour Tom Fletcher’s perspective on the rule of law in regards to our B.C. government and its dealing

with teachers across the province. While the current government has had its hand slapped for the second time for the same thing (ignoring and trying to circumvent the Canadian Con-

stitution and the law of the land), it has chosen to appeal the latest slap. As Tom points out, rightly so I believe, if the government obeys the law it may have a larger financial impact on its budget. However, if we

More compassion needed at municipal councils The dilemma of cat over-population and unwanted litters is more prevalent today than when I started The Council Animal Advocacy back in 1995. Why is the Fraser Valley so remiss to join 21st  century animal welfare thinking? Why is there such a tremendous lack of compassion toward animals, notably cats? Over the years I have made delegations to municipal councils across the region to create awareness and request adoption of progressive and effective bylaws to deal with the sad plight of thousands of cats. Most municipalities, again except the Fraser Valley, have adopted many bylaws, most recently tethering and addressing dangerous dogs. The former Mission council purchased an old dog pound build-

ing for $600,000 and pay approximately $300,000 for dog control. Whereas by contrast the Fraser Valley Humane Society receives approximately a $30,000 feefor-service and volunteers must raise donations, in part, to pay for an unheated basement in an office building downtown. There is no sane reasoning and certainly no compassion by mayors or councillors in the Fraser Valley who are themselves the greatest impediment to achieving an end to unwanted litters. Thus, I am reaching out to the public for compassion, wisdom to recognize our path to saving animals from a cruel life, and to awaken residents to heed the call to make the Fraser Valley a more compassionate place to live and work. The indifference and

lack of compassion has reached far into the human population, as well, with the City of Abbotsford’s abysmal treatment of the less fortunate garnering world-wide attention, to a lack of seniors’ amenities at Mission. The first step must come from you, the readers. Hopefully through your kindness and common sense, we will elect new mayors and councils, direct leaders to adopt my animal relations program and similarly to focus upon working with the homeless in Abbotsford to provide needed shelter. It is through your becoming informed and telling municipal politicians that you are fed up and demand that they adopt more compassion and humane leadership values. George F. Evens Mission

Tax-free status for religious institutions should stop Where are  our Ernie Chambers, the longest-serving state senator from Nebraska, who has just introduced a bill to eliminate state property tax exemptions for religious properties? Skeptics like Chambers seldom get equal time in the media but it’s high time that they do. There is no logical reason that any man-made religions still get the deference that they do. Especially when the narrow-mined fundamentalists and right-wingers then turn around and use this status against the best interests of society and the world by acting as dangerous reactionary forces against the common good.

The best way to separate politics and religion is to cut off the funding of these private facilities and that means removing their tax-free status. We need more Ernie Chambers to come forward and move us away from the shadows of the Dark Ages. We need to ditch all the goofy creation myths, no matter how devoutly held, and take our place as part of the natural world if we are ever to truly evolve and realize fully that true morality comes from science, observation,  and experience, not from religious dogmas. Robert T. Rock Mission

expect our teachers to bear the brunt of poorly developed and implemented political policies, then perhaps we need to demand better policies from our elected government rather than blame unions.

While Tom asserts that governments can not let unions control their own payroll, I think that he might consider that contracts between two parties that are fairly negotiated should not be so

casually and callously shredded by one of the parties. Teachers do not feel respected by this government,  and I suspect that while editorials tout a government party line and blame “unions” for

imagined disasters that might occur because unions expect governments to obey the laws of the land, then little will change. Gavin Karey-McKenna Abbotsford

ADM.LEG.OPI Conflict of Interest

DATE:

February 3, 2014

TO:

Mayor and Council

FROM:

Ken Bjorgaard, Chief Administrative Officer

SUBJECT:

Summation of Legal Opinion Regarding Conflict of Interest Issues Raised and Explanation of Prior Proceedings

PURPOSE: The purpose of this report is provide the public with a summation of the legal opinion received by the District of Mission regarding the alleged conflict of interest issues raised and to explain previous proceedings on this matter. COMMUNICATION: Summation of Legal Opinion An issue of conflict of interest has been raised in relation to Councillor Hensman's lease of a property in the downtown core. In particular, that he should not have voted on the purchase of the "buy low" property because that purchase affected his pecuniary interest in his company's lease and that he should not have participated in a discussion about altering the permitted uses in the downtown core to include churches because his pecuniary interests would be affected by such an alteration. The District sought a legal opinion on these issues and that legal opinion concluded that there are no facts that show the District's purchase of the downtown property has changed the values in the downtown core or affected the profitability of Councillor Hensman's business. The case law on this point is clear and says that there must be facts to support an allegation of conflict of interest: it cannot be based on speculation or a suspicion. The legal opinion concluded that Councillor Hensman's participation in the discussion about changing the permitted uses in the downtown core to include churches might be perceived to be a conflict of interest because he is a pastor. The legal opinion also concluded that the explanation by Councillor Hensman as to why he discussed this issue would likely be accepted by a court as falling within the defence of "inadvertence and an error in judgment made in good faith" set out in section 101(3) of the Community Charter. He indicated that his remarks were made in the context of a staff report that asked Council to consider whether changes should be made to the permitted uses. He says he observed an inconsistency with the definition of "cultural assembly use" because it prohibits churches but allows abbeys and monasteries, which include churches. Council is not aware of any other legal opinions which come to a different conclusion about these questions of conflict of interest. The legal opinion concluded that the question of conflict of interest in this case is not clear and obvious, and there is a very strong chance that an application under section 110 of the Community Charter would fail. Council does not have a legal obligation to proceed with an application under section 110 of the Community Charter. Section 110 contains a permissive power and is to be exercised with discretion. In exercising discretion, a Council will often consider how the decision will impact the taxpayers, including what it will cost the taxpayers and, in the case of legal action, whether it would be successful. In the case of a section 110 court application it is prudent for a Council to seek legal advice before exercising its discretion under this section.

Council has considered whether to take court action to seek to have Councillor Hensman disqualified from office; the motion to do so failed. This is not a trivial matter and the consequences are severe. This is why the legislation requires this kind of motion to have a 2/3 majority vote of all members of Council. Explanation of Prior Proceedings The Community Charter legislation allows the Council member in question to participate in a vote in regards to a motion to have the Council member disqualified on conflict of interest grounds under an application to the Supreme Court, as this is a very serious matter. In terms of the participation of the one Council member in the discussion and vote via telephone, while home sick, this is allowable under the District’s procedure bylaw and is consistent with past practice on other important issues.

iPad lab set up at Cherry Hill Elementary Local school now has 28 iPad 2s after local parents’ fundraising efforts Alina Konevski MISSION RECORD

Two Mission parents took it upon themselves to bring an extra set of high-tech learning tools to their son’s school. In the summer

of 2012, when Pavi and Gurdeep Toor’s Grade 4 son Jaiden was struggling with reading, writing, and math, they hired a tutor to help. The tutor brought an iPad full of free educa-

tional applications – and the Toors watched their son’s learning blossom. “Over a couple of hours a day over the summer, we started seeing huge improvement. And also, it was

much easier for him to stay engaged,” said father Pavi Toor. “We thought it was pretty cool, and we downloaded some apps. And from there, we were just doing our own thing after he went back to school.” When Ja i d e n returned to Cherry Hill Elementary that fall, the Toors approached the school to provide some iPads to students who are struggling. School administrators crunched the numbers and came back with a cost of $17,500, which wasn’t in the budget. So the Toors decided to do it themselves. They created a slideshow presentation about the educational power of iPads and campaigned the community. “We would go to community leaders, business leaders, potential donors.

Students at Cherry Hill Elementary had their first opportunity to check out iPads donated to the school at an open house Feb. 5. The evening was an opportunity for the school to thank Pavi and Gurdeep Toor for spearheading the campaign that raised $17,500 to purchase an iPad lab for the school. Local credit union, Prospera, donated half of the funds for the project. SUBMITTED PHOTO They’d look at it, ask us more questions, and we’d have to go back to the drawing board,” said Pavi. One year later, in August 2013, Prospera Credit Union committed half the funds.

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME AND TALENTS

There are many good reasons to volunteer our time and talents. Obviously, volunteering helps others who may need our services, but it also benefits the volunteers as well. There is nothing like helping others to take our minds off of our own problems. Most people who are anxious or depressed spend far too much time thinking about their own lives, and would be well-advised to spend some time helping others who are less fortunate than themselves. Furthermore, volunteering gives us an opportunity to try out something that we have always wanted to do, such as tutoring or mentoring “at-risk” students, working with children or senior citizens, or honing our carpentry or building skills. The Bible tells us that we should look out for one another’s interests, and not just for our own (Philippians 2:4). We should remember that volunteering isn’t limited only to the good work done by organizations such as Habitat for Humanity or the Salvation Army, but can be done less formally in our own “backyards”. The various talents that we all possess are gifts from our Heavenly Father, and when we share these with others, we are sharing His love.

Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. R.S.V. 2 Cor. 9:7

The Toors raised the rest mainly through family and friends, including a “significant” amount of their own money. They used a portion of their RESPs to make it possible. “We decided, instead of saving some day when the children might go to university, why don’t we take some of that money and make a change

today,” said Pavi. A total of 28 iPad 2s were purchased. The school held an open house on Feb. 5 to show off the new devices, which are targeted at kindergarten to Grade 4 students who struggle with reading, writing, and math. “There are some problems that the community can solve,” said Pavi.

Silverdale Creek Wetlands closer to self-sustaining Alina Konevski MISSION RECORD

Jim Taylor, a director of the Stave Valley Salmonid Enhancement Society, said a $40,000 grant will help limit invasive species at Silverdale Creek Wetlands. ALINE KONEVSKI PHOTO

A locally cherished wetlands sanctuary is one step closer to being a self-sustaining ecosystem. The Silverdale Creek Wetlands in west Mission recently received a $40,000 grant for improvements that will limit invasive species. “Most of our actions have been to bring it back to a more natural ecosystem, and we’re trying to do that so that it doesn’t require constant human attention. Good biology would have us have the system take care of itself,� said Jim Taylor, a director of Stave Valley Salmonid Enhancement Society, one of the organizations that looks after the area. The 112-acre wetlands were restored from farmland a few

The Silverdale Creek Wetlands is located on Silverdale Avenue, east of Nelson Street. ALINA KONEVSKI PHOTO years ago. The south end of the area is open to visitors as an interpretive trail and boardwalk. The wetlands are also a frequent study ground for various school groups, universities and government ministries. And in the spring, hundreds of thousands of salmon fry huddle in the tributaries. Taylor has been working with other

community volunteers to block invasive species so that the wetlands can take care of themselves. One such species is canary grass, which thrives in water and becomes so dense that it blocks the stream and prevents salmon from getting into the ecosystem. Right now, Taylor goes in with a weed cutter to clear out the grass.

The new grant will go towards raising the elevation along one creek to prevent canary grass from growing. New willow whips, cottonwood, and hawthorn will be planted on the elevated soil above freshet levels. “We’re raising the elevation so we can plant taller shade trees. What you will see three, four years from now, is that entire little stream will be a shaded tunnel through the vegetation ‌ and that will block the canary grass from growing,â€? said Taylor. “In operating the ecosystem, we’re getting pretty close to hands off now,â€? he added. The $40,000 is a matching grant, with $20,000 from Pacific Salmon Foundation and the other half from Stave Valley.

Mission MLA continues community service Carol Aun MISSION RECORD

Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson has carried a quote by Soren Kierkegaard with him for years. “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” It’s one of his favourites, written inside a little notebook of personal reflections. As a politician, teacher and columnist, Gibson often engages others in conversation and he shares these interesting stories or thought-provoking anecdotes with people from all walks of life. “People want to talk about important things,” said Gibson, noting lighthearted chats about the weather are no longer the norm. “I welcome that as an MLA; I want to make a difference.” Gibson has spent a lot of time working with Mission council to take truck traffic off First Avenue. “I’m confident we’re able to do that,” said Gibson, adding that

Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson chats with his constituency assistants Mark Duymes and Jean Dykshoorn inside his First Avenue office. CAROL AUN PHOTO the biggest challenge is overcoming the estimated $2.6-million price tag to make it happen. “It will require some creativity to complete.” As Gibson meets with municipalities to work out issues, his constituency assistants Jean Dykshoorn and Mark Duymes work on his behalf to assist constituents. The MLA’s office is a resource for many people needing government resources or help in resolving problems related to provincial organizations. For example, Dyk-

shoorn says the office helped a woman with a Pharmacare issue. The woman pre-paid a medical prescription for her son, but the pharmacy, which had incorrectly filled out the paperwork, said she would not be getting money back from Pharmacare. Once the mistake was discovered, the woman was reimbursed for the medication. While Gibson is enjoying his work, he notes being MLA isn’t his crowning achievement. “It’s just another way to serve people,” he said. And it seems if you

want Gibson to do something, all you have to do is ask. That’s the way he started his 30-plus year career as a city councillor in Abbotsford, and what prompted him to run for the BC Liberals last spring. For more than six months, Gibson served double duty as a councillor and MLA, but only picked up a paycheque for his MLA work. He attended just half a dozen Abbotsford council meetings, the minimum required under the Local Government Act to avoid a byelection.

In addition to spending less time with Abbotsford council, Gibson also resigned from the Fraser Valley Regional Transit Committee, the Abbotsford-Mission Transit Committee, the library board and the parks and rec commission. As an MLA, Gibson serves on the Treasury Board, Public Accounts Committee and the Pacific Northwest Economic Region. Gibson’s introduction to culture in Victoria was during a rare summer session to adopt the budget. “It was a very formal environment, steeped in tradition,” said Gibson of the B.C. Legislature. He looks forward to seeing the inner harbour from his Victoria office when the spring session begins in February. “While it can be a challenge to represent two communities, I’m sensitive to the needs of both communities and spend as much time as possible in both places.” Gibson’s constituency office is on First Avenue.

Nominations open for Order of British Columbia Nominations for the province’s highest recognition of excellence and lifetime achievement – the Order of British Columbia for 2014 – are now being accepted. “The Order of British Columbia is the province’s most prestigious accolade and gives us the opportunity to recognize the outstanding works of individuals in our communities who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to make all our lives better,” said Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor and Chancellor of the Order of British Columbia, in a press release. “Please take the time, as grateful citizens, to identify and nominate those special people worthy of being honoured in this significant way.” Any person or group is welcome to nominate a deserving individual as candidate for appointment to the Order of British Columbia. Nomination forms are available online at www.orderofbc.gov.bc.ca/nominations or by request from the Honours and Awards Secretariat office, at orderofbc@gov.bc.ca and 250387-1616. To be considered this year, nominations and letters of support must be received by March 7, 2014, at the Secretariat’s office (1st floor, 548 Michigan Street, Victoria, V8V 1S2) or via email at orderofbc@gov.bc.ca. Nominations received after this date will be included in the selection process for next year. A dinner and special ceremony of recognition will be hosted later this year by Lt.-Gov. Guichon at Government House for recipients and invited guests. The Order of British Columbia was established in 1989. Since its inception, 345 British Columbians have been honoured.

Mission has always had a vibrant Indo-Canadian community, and I have been very fortunate to call this my home. I have always been interested in local history and have long been fascinated by the story of former mayor of Mission City, Naranjan Grewall. It’s actually 60 years ago that he was appointed as mayor, making him the first Indo-Canadian in Canada to hold such a political office. Four years earlier,

he was elected to a candidate in Cancity council, making ada. He was narrowly him the first visible defeated by Socred minority and Indo-Ca- Labour Minister Lyle nadian elected to pub- Wicks.

Winter recreationalists and snowmobilers should be aware that construction of the Interior to Lower Mainland (ILM) Transmission Line continues. On-site activities include clearing of the right-of-way; construction of access roads and tower foundations; and tower assembly and erection. The ILM right-of-way continues to be a construction zone with restricted access. Restricted access is required for worker and public safety to avoid risks associated with such things as guy lines, partially constructed foundations, construction materials, or other potential hazards that may be hidden or partially hidden by the snow. Please avoid using the right-of-way for your activities. If you are in the area, use extra care when traveling around the right-of-way. The ILM project is a new 247 kilometre 500 kilovolt transmission line between Merritt and Coquitlam that will expand the electrical system so that BC Hydro can continue to deliver clean and reliable energy to homes and businesses in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

of those legacies he left behind was the Mission Tree Farm. In 1958, Mission was the first municipality to be given responsibility to monitor their own forest called Tree Farm License #26. The District of Mission has managed this resource since 1958 and it is often cited as an excellent example of how a locally managed forest can provide benefits to the community. Since 1990, surplus revenues have provided approximately $5 million to capital projects. The incident between former B.C. premier WAC Bennett and Grewall demonstrated how fierce political battles were fought in B.C. and could have been one of the deciding factors of granting the tree farm. During the muchheated 1956 provincial election, Grewall, as a CCF candidate, commonly addressed the issues of taxes, bridges, farmers and the forestry industry, which he claimed were being “monopolized” by a handful of large companies in the province. Grewall referred to these stakeholders as “timber maharajahs,” and said the system would revert to a “form of feudalism, which I left 30 years ago.” He spoke passionately before the provincial cabinet and testified at the

New Health Care Facility Brings Employment and Expertise to Mission Ron Coreau

MISSION POSSIBLE

“The Residence” in Mission is a new Fraser Health Residential care facility scheduled to open on April 2, 2014. This facility provides the opportunity for Mission residents to stay in Mission surrounded by family, friends, and the amenities to which they are accustomed. It is designed on the concept of selfsufficient neighbourhoods that are named after recognized Mission District neighbourhoods such as Siverdale, Dewdney and Hatzic. Neighbourhoods provide residents with the opportunity to dine, visit, and participate in leisure services all within their living environment. Each resident will have a 260 square foot single room, with access to out-

door light, cable TV, phone line, and a personal ensuite/washroom. The exterior of the Residence in Mission is surrounded by landscaped gardens, walkways and features a beautiful inner courtyard. Dan Schubert, Sr established Schubert Plumbing and Heating Ltd. in 1978. Since that time, this Mission-based family business has been serving the plumbing and heating needs of the Fraser Valley. They could not anticipate the positive impact the project would have on their business when Fraser Health and its municipal partners, the Fraser Valley Regional Hospital District and the District of Mission, announced the project. When VanMar Constructors was

awarded the contract for the Residence in Mission Schubert Plumbing and Heating Ltd. became the mechanical contractor for the construction of the project. Dan Schubert, Jr, the company’s Project Manager, stated, “This became the largest project in our company’s history as well as our first LEED Gold Certified, BC Wood First Initiative, and design-assist project.” Experience gained from this project has positioned the company for the future. They have doubled their work force from 12 to 25 employees, gained valuable knowledge on the processes required to be successful with design-assist, LEED and BC Wood First projects. The project required new and innovative tech-

nologies and during construction Schubert Plumbing and Heating became the first company in Canada to install this model of natural gas propane backed boiler system and the first in BC to install an in-floor cooling system. “The project has been good for our business but more importantly, it was nice to be part of a project that will leave a legacy for our community,” said Dan Schubert, Jr. The LEED Gold and BC Wood First Initiative requirements for the 133,500 square foot facility presented special product supply challenges for Fraser Valley Building Supplies, where Mike Freeman is responsible for Contractor Sales –Engineered Products. Freeman worked closely

with VanMar to ensure the products sourced met both the construction specifications as well as the strict criteria for the LEED Gold rating system, LEED Gold being one of the highest system standards. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, an internationally recognized program that provides means to verify that a building is designed and built to improve energy savings, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality and CO2 emission reduction. This was Mike Freeman’s 10th LEED project since joining Fraser Valley Building Supplies “Because CONTINUED ON 00

contact of value that can be established and in some cases linked to other goods and service providers the greater the opportunity to retain and expand business. It will become a vital tool for success in our business community. We have a strong foundation at the Chamber which is complemented by a Board with a passion for Mission and its business community. We are moving into the election of board members in March. I would encourage and welcome any member to join with the Board as it continues to develop programs for the benefit of all businesses in Mission.

of our experience we were able to increase the percentage of certified wood in the project which assisted the contractor to meet the LEED Gold Standards Freeman was required to maintain detailed records that identify each wood product on a line-item basis, show a dollar value for each, and provide a record of “chain of custody” that proved the product met the standards established by the Forest Stewardships Council. As well, wood products had to originate within set geographical distances from the project and he was required to maintain the records for external certification. The challenge was rewarding and came at an opportune time during the slower portion of Fraser Valley Building Supplies’ yearly business cycle. The Residence in Mission’s capital costs were funded by the Fraser Valley Regional Hospital District which contributed $22 million, Fraser Health $7 million, and the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation that has agreed to raise $1 million for the project. Capital expenditures always have major impact on a community through increased employment and locally purchased services and

care needs, residents with dementia, acquired brain injury, day program, and a Respite Hotel which will give caregivers in the community an opportunity to have time away from caring for their loved ones. Adjacent to The Residence at Mission is Cedar Hills Assisted Living facility along with the Mission Acute Care facility and the new Community Health Centre. Fraser Health is repositioning health care delivery in Mission, through this campus of care, as this model better serves the health needs of the Mission area population. “Fraser Health is excited to be able to increase employment opportunities for health care professionals who live in the Mission area. Staff who have been employed for “The Residence” are unequivocally thrilled to be able to work close to home and care for those who have lived in Mission”, says Liz Findlay, Clinical Director. If you would like to learn more about the Residence in Mission or the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation please contact Lisa Luky at the Foundation office in Mission Memorial Hospital at 604701-4051 or visit our website at www. fvhcf.org

materials. It is the on-going operating budget that will have the greatest and positive long term impact. The quality of the facility as a place of work and the opportunities offered will attract employees to the community. Replacing Pleasantview Care Facility and the Dr. Stuart Pavilion, The Residence in Mission’s annual operating budget is $14 million. With a staff of 200, The Residence in Mission will increase employment by approximately 75 new positions. Patricia Jappy-Loker and Laura Koch are the Clinical Managers for The Residence in Mission. The managers are nearing the end of the hiring process. PJ and Laura said- say they “will be leading a team with approximately 12RN/RPNs, 36 LPNs, 102 Health Care Assistants, casual employees for all designations, and 25 allied therapy and recreational service employees.” Employing 30 people the new on-site kitchen will serve The Residence in Mission, Mission Memorial Hospital, the Cottage/Worthington Pavilions in Abbotsford, and the CRESST program. The Residence in Mission is one part of a campus of care. This modern facility will offer care to residents with complex

Otter Co-op brings value and top-notch customer service to Mission Kathleen Rake

CLICK MEDIA WORKS

Otter Farm & Home Co-operative, best known by Fraser Valley residents as Otter Co-op or, simply, the Co-op, chose Mission for its first gas bar and grocery store north of the Fraser River. “We’re excited to be in Hatzic and bring our special brand of customer service that says You’re at home here,” said Colton Potter, manager of the new Co-op gas bar and grocery store that opened in November. Since 1922, Otter Co-op has been serving Fraser Valley communities with a member-owned business model. “For a one-time, lifetime investment of just $10, you’re a member and can reap the benefits,” said Potter. “Last year, members received a five percent refund on their purchases. The more you spend, the more you get back.” While membership in the Otter Co-op provides all sorts of benefits, one does not have to be a member to take advantage of everyday value and top-notch customer service. “The gas

bar, open seven days a week until 11:00 p.m., is self-serve, but there are people available to help anyone who needs it,” said Potter. “And our grocery section will grow and improve with the renovations this spring,” he added. As well as an expanded grocery store with quality foods and articles, you’ll find fishing tackle and other outdoor outfitting at the Mission location, making it unique in the Otter Co-op family. According to Potter, the Co-op has “always believed in being a fully participating member of the community and we are happy to get involved. That’s why you find us supporting post-secondary scholarships, local clubs and nonprofit organizations, as well as providing a venue for local fundraising.” Find out more about Otter Co-op member benefits or check out the Hatzic Gas Bar for yourself: 34981 Lougheed Hwy., at the foot of Dewdney Trunk; phone 604-826-6421; www.OtterCoop.com.

Your Chamber @ Work: Slashing Red Tape for Small Business

T

he Mission Chamber applauds the B.C. government for listening to B.C.’s Chamber network and amending a recycling regulation that was causing substantial concern among businesses so that it will impact less thant 1% of B.C.’s businesses. “This is a huge relief to our local business community,” said Sean Melia, President of the Mission Chamber. “This change exempts the majority of our local businesses, including all of our Mom and Pop shops, from new costs and red tape.” The regulation targets packaging and printed paper (PPP) and is slated to go into force in May. The B.C. government has announced that it will enshrine in regulation an exemption for any B.C. business that meets any of the following criteria:

annual revenues of less than $1 million; • less than 1 tonne of packaging and printed paper produced annually and/or • a single point of retail sale (and not supplied by or operated as part of a franchise, chain or under a banner). That means that less than 3,000 businesses in the province will be captured by the regulation, out of more than 385,000. Sean Melia noted that the Mission Chamber supports the principle of extended producer responsibility (EPR), which aligns with B.C. business values, but cautioned that EPR programs need to be implemented carefully to avoid unintended consequences. “This exemption correctly balances environmental goals with business needs,” Sean Melia said.

“We applaud the B.C. government for responding to businesses’ concerns and limiting the scope of the program, appropriately, to B.C.’s largest PPP producers.” The Chamber network throughout B.C. raised the alarm about the regulation last summer after businesses across the province were contacted about coming new obligations and fees by Multi Material BC (MMBC), the agency charged with producing a stewardship plan under the regulation. “It became clear that this regulation would have unintended fallout for businesses, and particularly small businesses, across B.C.,” said Melia “As a Chamber network, we knew we needed to roll up our sleeves, get to work and fix this thing.” Backed by local Chambers, the BC Chamber of Commerce worked

That’s Just How We Roll

extensively with the B.C. government and MMBC to hammer out a way forward that avoided a “onesize-fits-all” approach. “Today’s announcement is the fruit of those labours: A re-tooled regulation that achieves B.C.’s environmental goals, while protecting the vast majority of B.C. businesses from new costs and red tape,” said John Winter, president and CEO of the BC Chamber. “Our local Chambers have worked heroically on this file, pushing hard for the on-the-ground needs of B.C. businesses,” Winter said. “Our partnership with local Chambers, such as the Mission Chamber has been crucial to achieving this victory.” The BC Chamber and its network of local Chambers will carefully monitor the implementation of this regulation, to ensure that any further issues are quickly identified.

‘He was an icon:’ WAC Bennett FROM 14

of the Fraser Valley

Sloan Commission on behalf of small logging operators in B.C. Just before election day, the premier spoke in Mission City, which was supposed to be the last leg of the long summer campaign. During Bennett’s Social Credit address, many of the uninvited CCF supporters gathered and heckled him from inside and outside the hall, making it one of the most memorable moments in B.C. political history. During the first half of his two-hour speech, the premier’s smile was well in evidence as he jibed back at his hecklers. Bennett said efforts were made to get the Mission High School auditorium for the meeting, but it was not available, “which shows that schools are not owned by the government and I am not a dictator.� At this point a voice was heard shouting

out “baloney.� The heckler was CCF candidate Grewall, who proceeded to enter the hall and began to seat himself on the stage, “to the accomplishment of mixed

During the first half of his two-hour speech, the premier’s smile was well in evidence... cheers and catcalls.� The premier continued his speech, as many cried out to hear Grewall speak. Bennett said that the CCF and Liberals could rent their own hall if they wished to address the gathering. I spoke with former premier Dave Barrett in 2003 and recalled hearing many incredible stories about Grewall, when he first arrived in Canada in 1957. Barrett said during

became premier in 1972, he was invited to the Sikh Temple in Vancouver and was presented with a ceremonial sword. As he received the sword, he told the audience: “This isn’t for me, this is for Naranjan Grewall. He is our true hero.� Barrett and Grewall never met, but he started his political career in Grewall’s former riding of Dewdney, when he first got elected to the B.C. legislature

in 1960. When Grewall was nominated as a candidate for the CCF party in the Dewdney riding in 1956, this drew excitement. But, according to Barrett, Grewall faced open discrimination on the campaign trail. “The former mayor knew the risk he was taking and many people were surprised he took this risk to enter the race,� said Barrett. Barrett said Grewall overcame many racial insults along the way. “Every kid in the North Fraser, who thinks he or she is being discriminated against, should read the Grewall story and the challenges he faced.� Grewall was later found dead in a Seattle motel room with a gunshot wound to the head in July of 1957. He was 47 years of age. Mission’s Ken Herar writes on diversity issues.

Mission’s Natalie Alves and Stella recently won the Half Arabian Horse of the Year award.

Big year for Alves and Stella Mission rider and her horse earn top awards in competition Dan Kinvig BLACK PRESS

Natalie Alves of Mission capped a tremendous year of equestrian competition by collecting the Half Arabian Horse of the Year award at the Equine Canada gala last week in Winnipeg. Alves, a 16-year-old Grade 11 student at Heritage Park Secondary, and her horse Shake It Up Baby – also known as Stella – had a memorable 2013 together, winning a series of championships in competitions on both sides of the border. At the Scottsdale Horse Show in Arizona,

they combined to bring home championships in two events, one reserve championship (runner-up), and three first-place results in the qualifying classes. The performance led to Alves being featured in Arabian Horse World magazine. At Canadian regionals in Langley, the duo continued to shine, winning three championships and one reserve championship. Then, at the Canadian nationals in Brandon, Man., Alves and Stella earned the national championship in the Half Arabian Ladies Side Saddle event, to go with

FIBREGLASS

Alves grew up around horses on her family’s two-and-a-half acre property just outside of Mission. “My dad has had horses for a long time, for about 30 years or so, and for a lot of that time, he picked up Arabians,” she said. “Working with horses my entire life has been a huge benefit for me. Not only do I ride, we also have a breeding program. It teaches you a lot with the babies and the different kinds of horses. It give you a sense of responsibility and accomplishment as a kid.”

three reserve championships and additional third- and fourth-place finishes. The national horse of the year award for Stella was the cherry on top. “For me and my horse, it’s a big accomplishment,” enthused Alves, who has been working with Stella under the tutelage of trainer Brenda Driediger since December 2011. “We’ve got a couple years under our belts, and you build a bond. It’s something that takes time, but it lasts a long time. I’ll be spending a lot of years with her.”

District Update THIS IS OUR MISSION In the Spotlight Helping the Homeless: A 24-Hour Snapshot

Stay in touch Volunteers needed

Homelessness continues to be a concern in British Columbia, in Canada, and around the world. The reasons people become homeless are varied and complex. It can happen to anyone regardless of income, education, age, race, or gender. It can happen due to loss of employment, physical disability, mental illness, drug addiction or a traumatic incident like a house Àre. To better help service providers plan and offer programs that will address homelessness, communities conduct a 24-hour snapshot survey every three years to estimate the number of homeless people who are living in our province. The next survey in Mission will be conducted on March 11 and 12.

About 30 volunteers will pair up in groups of two and together complete a threehour volunteer shift. They will visit locations frequented by the homeless population such as the emergency shelter, transition house, drop-in meal programs, bottle depots, parks, in and around bridges, prisons and hospitals. This is a wonderful Àeld opportunity for students and those wanting to better understand the complexity of this global social concern. Volunteers require an ability to interact with a compassionate nonjudgmental attitude. Criminal record checks are required however all fees have been waived for volunteers. Although no previous experience in this area is

required, references will be contacted. All volunteers must be available for a mandatory training on March 4, 2014 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mission Friendship Centre to learn about surveying vulnerable populations and the ethics involved in this process. Thank you bags will be distributed to all individuals being surveyed including juice, water, a granola bar, a mini Àrst aid kit, Áashlight and a meal resource sheet. Join us in coming together for this important community project.

For more information please contact Kirsten Hargreaves, Manager of Social Development, khargreaves@ mission.ca (604) 820–3752.

Around Town Look out for that pile? The District of Mission is fortunate to have a variety of parks and trails for residents to enjoy. Some of our parks have special uses, like the Mission Rotary Sports Park. This amazing facility is specially designed for sports activities like baseball, slo-pitch, and soccer. Recently though, we have been seeing an increase in the number of off leash dogs in the Sports Park and owners aren’t picking up after them. Please remember that dogs are not permitted on any playing Àelds. Playing baseball, slo-pitch, or soccer isn’t much fun if you are likely to fall in dog poop! And besides, it’s a health concern. There are many places that are dog-friendly in Mission. The only off-leash area is at Centennial Park. Check out our web site to learn more about which parks are perfect for your pooch.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SCHEDULE WILL BE UPDATED WEEKLY.

Pursuant to Section 92 of the Community Charter, a council must state, by resolution passed in a public meeting, the fact that the meeting or part of the meeting is to be closed and the basis under the applicable subsection of Section 90 on which it is to be closed. Municipal Council will hold a Regular Council Meeting for the sole purpose of going into a Closed Council meeting at Mission Municipal Hall, 8645 Stave Lake Street, Mission, BC. in the Conference Room on February 17, 2014 commencing at 2:00 p.m. View Live and Archived Council meetings online at: www.mission.ca/municipal-hall/mayor-council/council-webcasts Read Council Meeting Highlights at: www.mission.ca/municipal-hall/mayor-council/agendas-minutes/council-meeting-highlights

Here are some other guidelines to help you get the most out of our parks and trails: HOURS OF USE May - September • Dawn to dusk October - April • 7:00am - 9:00pm • Respect and be aware of wildlife • Keep dogs leashed and pick up after them • Motorized vehicles are not permitted • Smoking is prohibited

Err on the side of caution. Do not dispose of any liquids containing household cleaners, pesticides, paint, antifreeze or other chemicals. They don’t belong in our streams that fish and other wildlife depend on for survival. Using the storm sewer for

Looks Last year, Nissan introduced the bigger mid-sized Pathfinder SUV and this smaller Rogue shares many styling cues from its bigger brother. This, in my opinion, is a good idea. It has a sense of purpose, sophistication and commonality that helps define Nissan’s brand. Nissan wants to portray “everyday premium” with this new Rogue, including such nice touches as LED daytime running lights, wheel arch extensions, integrated mirror turn

In addition, this package includes navigation, a 7-inch touch screen monitor, power lift gate, blind-spot detection system, and lane departure warning system. These really are premium features found only in luxury SUVs just a few short years ago. Unfortunately, the top SL trim is only available in a two-row 5-seat configuration because

QUESTION OF THE WEEK!

it was felt the price would be too high for compact SUV buyers. Drive As hard as it might be to believe, this new, larger and slightly heavier (49kg) Rogue is actually more fuel-efficient than the last model. They were able to improve the economy by 18 per cent through the introduction of a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), aerodynamic tricks, and letting the carried-over engine breathe a bit better. Still rated at 170hp, the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine does a good job in city driving, thanks to the gearing of the new CVT but can seam a bit underpowered for higher, passing manouevre on the highway. Overall, the person filling the new Rogue up with fuel will welcome this balance of efficiency and everyday drivability. As part of the winter driving experience, I drove on an ice course in Macaglisse, Que., to highlight the vehicle’s stability system and the Active Trace Control feature. On the first run, through the twisty, sheer ice roads the entire system was shut off. As I crested a hill, then made a hard right turn, the Rogue slid all

the way out to the edges of the corner, almost hitting the opposing snow bank. On the second run, with the advanced systems on, the same road was almost uneventful. The stability and traction control kept the wheels from spinning but the Trace Control System provides just a slight amount of brake force to the inside wheels to help the Rogue navigate the sheet ice with confidence. Verdict The objective with this new Rogue was to be noticed and provide a level of refinement and creature comforts that the competition isn’t providing. The pricing is fantastic, especially the middle SV models. The larger interior dimensions will always be welcome, as buyers like to get more for their money, but it is still small and efficient enough for city buyers.

Adventures in leaving Detroit and trusting your GPS By Alexandra Straub

The digital road sign above warned: “Changing Roads Ahead. Do not rely solely on GPS.” I felt like it was speaking directly to me as I had suffered anxiety ever since Driveway editor Keith Morgan climbed into the Jeep Cherokee and we left downtown Detroit, heading north to Toronto. North, ahem, yes. The tunnel to Canada was a stone’s throw away from our launch point. I was thinking it would route me the same way I got down to Motown, via Windsor and through the tunnel. Why the GPS didn’t? I’m not sure. Clearly it knew something we didn’t. Needless to say, the mechanical woman’s voice echoing through the premium speakers certainly did give us a scenic tour of the area. And by scenic I mean, she guided us through some rather dodgy areas, characterized

by poorly maintained roads, broken down buildings and dejected looking people. After the excitement of the 2014 North American International Auto Show, I was looking forward to the long and painfully boring drive back. (That’s before Keith hitched a ride, honest.) My wish was not yet coming true. Finally, we were on some sort of highway. But no signs to a border popped up for miles and miles. We even pulled over a couple of times in the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited to check our smartphones to see if we were heading in the right direction. We were, but I guess I was just looking for a sign. A sign that said “Canada” on it. But no, we got this instead: “State Prison Nearby. Do NOT Pick Up Hitchhikers.” Gulp. I forgot to mention, my fuel was getting low, too, and I had a flight to catch out of

Pearson. No need to panic, I think. When you’re in these kinds of situations, you say things that you normally wouldn’t say. “I will be so happy when we are back in Ontario,” is a phrase not often uttered by a B.C. resident. But it fell from my lips. Desperate times call for desperate measures, right? The one thing that remained steadfast and calm throughout the craziness was the Jeep Cherokee. The leather-trimmed seats were plush and comfortable to sit in for hours on end. When I started veering off the straight and narrow – aka out of my lane – the lane departure warning would gently lead me back into place. And since it was frigid outside – Ontario and Michigan in January is anything but tropical – features like a remote starter, heated seats, a heated steering wheel and

dual climate zone controls keep occupants toasty warm. Not to mention there was a generous amount of power being delivered from its 3.2L, Pentastar V6 engine, which is rated at 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. It’s then linked to a 9-speed automatic transmission. And with 4x4 capabilities, I was ready to brave the winter conditions, on bare roads or not. Finally a sign to Canada. Looks like we’d been routed through Sarnia. I was doing a little happy dance on the inside. Did I doubt the GPS’s ability to lead? I sure did. Then again, it’s not out of my character to question authority. As we handed the CBSA our passports, all I could think about was finding a gas station before we got stranded. And yes, I was very happy to be in Ontario. But I’d be hap-

pier when I knew I was on a plane to Vancouver. Yet, I was thoroughly enjoying my time in the Cherokee, quirky styling and anxiety aside.

The quiet cabin allowed for wonderful conversations, whether it was with myself, with the GPS or with Keith. In addition, I managed to

learn a lot from road signs. I will not wholeheartedly rely on the GPS and will not pick up hitchhikers in Michigan. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

helps spread the love around as we get some terrific entries that deserve more exposure. This year was no exception and we had some brilliant entries from Honda, Ford, General Motors, Toyota and Mercedes-Benz. The quality of the powertrain, braking, steering and active safety systems entries made the decision process very difficult. Driving enthusiasts, almost universally, have a negative knee-jerk reaction to severing that mechanical link between the steering wheel and road wheels. Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) is a bold move by Infiniti and it had the guile, and the racing connections, to involve the best driver in the world, four-time F1 Champion Sebastian Vettel, in the development of Q50. On the plus side, DAS eliminates the mechanical losses that can dull and delay steering response to driver inputs in a mechanical/hydraulic steering system. Harsh, unwanted vibrations at the steering wheel are eliminated and the driver can choose, using a four-mode selector, the amount of steering effort and response that he or she prefers. DAS can also interact with other handling systems such as Infiniti’s Active Lane Control system, which makes the Q50 feel like it is “magnetized” within a traffic lane. DAS also has a triple-mode (three control units) clutch feature that instantly defaults it to a fail-safe mechanical steering linkage if electrical power is cut. The Best New Safety Technology award went to Infiniti’s Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) technology. This system can warn a driver of a potential collision risk that actually lies beyond a driver’s normal field of view. PFCW not only monitors movement of a vehicle that’s directly ahead in the same traffic lane, it can also (mystically) monitor a vehicle (two cars ahead) in front of the vehicle directly ahead. More information on these technologies and the new Infiniti Q50 sports sedan, AJAC and the Best New Technology Award entries and voting procedures can be found at AJAC.ca. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

Take a winch to the wild outdoors There have been very few times that I have gone four wheeling and not run into a situation where a winch is required. A winch can be an important tool in safely plucking a vehicle from an impossible situation, or righting a truck after a rollover. It can also be used to clear properties of logs or rocks. If you travel the back roads of British Columbia, you should never be without a winch. There are a few things to know before you operate your winch for the first time. What appears to be a simple operation can quickly turn dangerous if basic safe winching practices are not used. Most are equipped with a varying length of wire rope and the length of the rope is determined by the winch’s load capacity. The wire rope should be inspected regularly to ensure that it has not become crushed, pinched, frayed, or kinked at any point. Should the rope be damaged, it should be replaced before use to avoid injury. All winch owners should have a winch accessory kit to recover a vehicle properly and safely. The average kit includes a three-metre choker chain, a clevis, snatch block, five-centimetre tree trunk protector, gloves, and

a carrying case. Prices are generally between $250 and $375 depending upon the manufacturer. Most winches are offered with a winch hook strap to ensure that operators do not put hands and fingers in harm’s way. Always wear gloves when operating a winch or handling wire rope. A single line pull is one of the most basic winching operations. It involves rigging the wire rope to a stable anchoring point and spooling it in to pull the vehicle toward the anchor point. This type of pull can also be used to extract a truck without a winch; the winch equipped truck becomes the anchor point and the stuck vehicle is pulled toward it. It is a good idea to throw a jacket or blanket over the wire rope midway between the winch and the anchor point. This will prevent the cable from whipping back to the truck in the event of breakage. A tree can serve as an excellent anchor point, but never attempt to wrap a wire rope or chain around it. In addition to being extremely dangerous, this improper winching practice can damage or kill the tree. Use a tree saver strap, along with a clevis. When a truck is seriously stuck, more winching power can be achieved through a double line pull. To do so,

un-spool a length of a line from the drum and thread it through a snatch block. The cable’s hook can then be fastened to an anchor point on the truck’s frame or tow hook, and the snatch block will secure to an anchor point toward the direction of the pull. This method decreases the number of layers of wire rope on the drum and greatly increases pulling power. A snatch block can also be used to change the direction of the pull, without the wire rope collecting on one side of the drum. If you have followed the basic principle of four-wheeling and brought a buddy or a second vehicle, then chances are you will

have some assistance in the recovery. Sometimes all a stuck vehicle needs is a little motivation. In those instances, a quality recovery strap ($53) will work fine. Knowing how to operate a winch correctly is as important as

knowing how to drive the 4x4 it is mounted to. Misuse can result in injury or even death, so it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with your winch before reaching a situation where you need to use it.

Shakespeare famously asked, “What’s in a name?”  Frankly, in the automotive world, a hell of a lot. It’s difficult to imagine a Corvette called anything else. Yet, it’s not on my list of cool names because prior to its application to America’s sports car, a corvette was a not-quite-a-destroyer type of small anti-submarine boat. The name only became cool after the Corvette became a success (which didn’t exactly happen overnight). These six car names are just cool. • Mercury Marauder: The name conjures up bands of roving barbarians. In addition to providing basic transportation, who wouldn’t want a car that’s also proficient at looting and pillaging? • Ferrari 500 Superfast: Even in the early 1960s, using this name took cojones. Something that Enzo Ferrari never lacked. It’s almost over-the-top comical, not unlike Wile E. Coyote’s business card, which listed his occupation as “Super Genius.” One can only imagine the response of today’s product liability lawyers to this one.   • Shelby Cobra: As venomous snakes go, Cobras are wicked cool. The whole hood thing, their exotic origins and their highly concentrated venom make your ordinary rattlers and water moccasins seem, well, ordinary. It makes for one of the all-time great hood badges, too. • Plymouth Barracuda: As fish go, after the shark, the barracuda is arguably the most badass. Beautifully streamlined, highly aggressive and possessing a mouthful of piranha-like teeth, it’s possibly one of the most evocative names for a performance car ever. And while Mopar fans worship the way later cars were simply called the ’Cuda, we remain fans of the full name. • Aston Martin Vanquish: Vanquish is generally defined as follows: To utterly defeat; soundly thrash or beat; to overpower, subjugate or subdue. Enough said. Rob Sass is the vice-president of content for Hagerty Insurance. Hagerty is the world’s leading specialist provider of classic car and boat insurance. Learn more at hagerty.ca

Juke is extraordinarily out of the ordinary Nissan Juke 2011 to 2013 If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, then check out a Nissan Juke. It was described by Nissan as a sport cross-utility vehicle, when introduced for the 2011 model year. The Juke is not big or pricey; it has (let’s say) distinctive styling lines and it packs a hot little engine under hood that also provides excellent fuel economy. It is short in length yet tall in stature and has a wide stance with short front/ rear body overhangs. The round headlights were rally car-inspired and are topped by distinctive “crocodile eye” light combinations. From a side view, the Juke has a two-door coupe look

with “hidden” rear door handles. Even a base SV trim level of Juke comes surprisingly well equipped with alloy wheels, keyless entry, air conditioning, 4-wheel disc brakes, stability control, steering wheel audio controls, heated side mirrors, a security system, Bluetooth and audio connectivity. The sweetest part of the package is the turbocharged (with intercooler) 1.6-litre direct injection, 16-valve engine. Power peaks at an impressively high 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. While its fuel economy ratings are a super-frugal 7.3/6.1 L/100 km (city/highway), this engine does prefer pricier premium fuel. An optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) system comes with a torque-vectoring feature on the rear axle. Under normal driving conditions, it directs all drive power to the front wheels for best fuel economy. It can (automatically) vary drive up to an equal split between the front and rear axles. An I-Con display with a drive mode selector, which offers different throttle/ transmission/steering response settings, comes with the higher SL trim level. This trim also includes

fog lights, a power moonroof, push-button start and climate control air conditioning. A 6-speed manual transmission was standard with the front-drive models and the automatic is a CVT type. Despite Juke’s compact exterior dimensions, there’s seating space (with a bit of a squeeze) for five adults on the inside. The rear seat is a handy fold-down 60/40-split bench that folds flat to provide an extended cargo floor. Juke’s centre console is a motorcycle-inspired design that has a high-gloss (colour-matched) painted finish. The design and slope of the roof at the back, however, does limit rear vision from a driver perspective. Juke carried-over into the 2012 model year virtually unchanged and had only minor alterations for 2013. The Navigation package includes a rearview monitor and a stereo upgrade (that was standard on Juke SL). The NHTSA overall crash test safety rating (front/ side/rollover) for Juke was 4 out of 5 stars, with a 3 out of 5 stars in its frontal impact test. It received a coveted “recommended” buy rating from Consumer Reports and an overall “average” rating for reliability. Daring to be different, the Nissan Juke is a fun vehicle to drive and an interesting vehicle option for those bored with conformist compact sedans. Safety Recalls: 2011 to 2013 Nissan Juke: 2011: A weld at the boost sensor bracket may fail, allowing the bracket to separate from the air inlet tube. If this occurred, the engine would enter failsafe driving mode with reduced motive power. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the air inlet tube assembly. 2011/2012: The fuel pressure sensor connected to the engine fuel delivery rail may not have been sufficiently tightened during vehicle assembly and could leak. Dealers will inspect for fuel leakage from the pressure sensor, tightened to specifications or repair as necessary. 2012: The rear seat latch strikers (which secure the seat backrest in the upright position) may be faulty and could deform during a frontal vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury to rear seat occupants. Dealers will replace defective rear seat latch strikers. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

WELCOME TO MISSION BC WINTER GAMES FEBRUARY 20-23 WELCOME TO THE 27TH BC WINTER GAMES

GAMES PRESIDENT MESSAGE Leadership is about working with teams toward a common goal.  The team that leads the Mission 2014 BC Winter Games is comprised of dynamic community leaders who  share the goal of  bringing high level competitive sport to Mission from February 20-23. The focus for the "board of directors"  is to provide an exceptional experience for almost 2,000 athletes, coaches and officials who are coming to Mission full of hopes, dreams, competitive spirit...and their own goal-setting. Goal-setting has been a key part of the planning for each directorate.  For instance, Bryan Fawcett's Transportation team  has the goal of delivering competitors to sport venues safely, securely, and on time.  Peter Bucher's Food Services team  will deliver 25,000 meals to Games participants.  Cal Crawford's Ceremonies team  produces dynamic opening and closing ceremonies.  Danny Plecas' Accommodations team provides secure  space for  participants to sleep in local schools. Peter Robson's Medical Services team ensures venues are supported by qualified medical and physio personnel. 

The list goes on through Steve Sharpe's Sport team  which coordinates all competitions activity, and Shaun Wright's Security team  which  ensures activities are safe and secure.  Eden Green's Registration and Results team handles accreditation for all participants and posts results.  Kayla Johannessen's Promotions team  leads public relations  activities, and Bob and Leslie Reed's Special Events team organizes evening events.  Jordon West's Communications  team ensures Games venues are connected electronically, and Grant Mottershead and Barbara Bremner's Friends of the Games team engages sponsors and supporters and ensures proper recognition.  Elyssa Lockart's Protocol team manages all receptions and government involvement.  And Ann Harper's Administration team controls all financial aspects and works with Operations Manager Rodd McCormick to facilitate all Games operations. Teams working for teams:    the concept is working well for the Mission 2014 BC Winter Games board throughout the Games.

WELCOME TO MISSION BC WINTER GAMES FEBRUARY 20-23 THIS IS WHERE IT BEGINS - THE BC WINTER GAMES By Lia THRELFALL

COMMUNICATION MANAGER, BC GAMES

For the first time ever, Mission is hosting British Columbia’s premier multi-sport event, the BC Winter Games. More than 1,800 participants and up to 2,000 volunteers will celebrate sport and community over four action-packed days. The BC Winter Games are the first multisport experience for British Columbia’s best emerging high performance athletes, trained coaches, and certified officials. These participants have been training throughout the past year for the chance to represent their home zone at the BC Winter Games. This experience is an important development opportunity and stepping stone for athletes, coaches, and officials to one day represent the province or country at the most elite levels of competition. “The future of sport in B.C. will be in Mission and we want to see these young athletes compete to the best of their ability,” said Kelly Mann, president and CEO of the BC Games Society. “The BC Winter Games are the first step towards national and international level competitions where we see BC Games alumni taking centre stage.”

The timing of the BC Winter Games this year is particularly exciting as it coincides with the final weekend of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. Thirteen BC Games alumni are competing for the Canadian Olympic team including 2010 Olympic gold medalist Maëlle Ricker (snowboard), 2011 World Champion Kelsey Serwa (ski cross), NHL star Carey Price (hockey) and former track and field standout turned bearded bobsleigh driver, Justin Kripps. Athletes like our Canadian Olympians have been supported throughout their careers by family, organizations, and countless volunteers. It is the volunteers who are truly the driving force and heart and soul behind the BC Winter Games. It is their commitment that provides an experience of a lifetime for our young athletes. A local organizing committee has been planning and preparing for more than 18 months to welcome the province. The team of Games-time volunteers is taking care of every aspect of the event from the sport competitions to ceremonies, food, transportation, accommodation and special events. This is where it begins. Let’s make the Mission 2014 BC Winter Games an experience to remember!

STUDENT EXPERIENCE IN GAMES KITCHENS A ‘WIN-WIN’  By Jessica PETERS

meals in large quantities. Like the athletes they’re feeding, the Games is a premium opportunity for the student chefs to push their own limits. 

BLACK PRESS

About 60 Fraser Valley culinary students will be earning a unique and significant experience during the BC Winter Games. 

“It’s the perfect scenario,” he said. “I’ll have students from my school not just working with me, but working with other chefs and in a high-volume situation. It’s a win-win.” 

They’ll be put to task throughout the four-day event, preparing everything from boxed lunches to formal dinners. Under the guidance of about seven lead chefs, the students will help prepare up to 2,000 meals daily, three times a day. 

Even better, the students in the kitchen will be cheering for the students competing. 

About a dozen of those students will come from Maple Ridge secondary school, with their chef instructor Trevor Randle. 

“Their peers are the ones competing,” Randle said. “So the whole thing is studentcentered. And they’ll see that if it wasn’t for all the volunteers, things like this wouldn’t be able to happen.” 

When the call came from fellow chef instructor Peter Bucher at Heritage Park secondary to help out in the Games’ kitchens, Randle didn’t think twice.  “There are only about 68 teaching kitchens around B.C.,” Randle said, so the instructors tend to be a tight-knit group who help each other out whenever possible.  “Peter’s the one running the show,” when it comes to feeding hungry athletes, coaches, parents and dignitaries,“ Randle explained. “So we’re all excited to help him out and I know he would do the same for us.”  Randle will be bringing in his students

over three time slots. Along with the other volunteers, they’ll be creating more than 1,800 box lunches daily out of Hatzic Secondary. A further 2,000 or so breakfasts are being served at Heritage Park on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Games,

and another 2,000 dinners on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  It’s a monumental task, but Randle is certain that his students can handle it. At Maple Ridge’s commercial kitchen, students already learn to plan, prepare and serve

Randle was the food coordinator when the BC Disability Games was held in Maple Ridge in 2008, and took in the BC Summer Games as a spectator when that event was held in Langley.  “It was fantastic watching these guys in our neighbourhood, in our backyard. How could I miss it?” he said. “Seeing these young people. These are our future Olympians and seeing them now is wonderful. They’re topnotch.”

WELCOME TO MISSION BC WINTER GAMES FEBRUARY 20-23

TUNING UP FOR THE GAMES By Jessica PETERS BLACK PRESS

The BC Winter Games is bringing the best athletes to the forefront, Feb. 20-23 in Mission.  But before the first skis even hit the slopes, before the first drop of the puck, there will be a dazzling, culture-filled opening ceremony. Filled with drumming, music and dancers, the ceremony pulls together dozens of local artists and a large troupe of dancers. One of those artists is Jennie Bice, a Mission-area musician and owner of Annwyn Studios. Through her involvement with Fraser Valley arts and culture organizations, Bice was commissioned to compose the theme song for the Games. 

But there were a few parameters that the theme song needed to follow.  “It has to be sports-related, and youth-focused,” she says. In short, it had to be a bit “pop.” “I’ve never really written a pop song,” she confesses. But she has now, and the result is a song that encapsulates the spirit of the Games. But it also drums up a sense of community. With help from her husband Joe Samarodin as engineer, the song is a blend of local musicians and many of her own music students.  Each of the six main musicians has been into Annwyn Studios to lay down their tracks, including the multi-talented Boris Sichon. 

“Bronwen Sutherland phoned me last summer and asked if I’d be interested,” she recalls. “I thought, ‘Oh, that’s kind of neat.’ I’d never done anything like that before.” 

“He can play something like 300 instruments,” Bice says. He contributed to the recorded track with 10 different instruments, from the drum to the didgeridoo. 

Bice’s focus is on the fiddle, and she’s equally comfortable working with Celtic groups or rock bands.

Andy Hillhouse, executive and artistic director of the Harrison Festival Society, has

also contributed to the track as a guitarist. All the musicians involved will be invited to the mainstage at the opening ceremonies at the Mission Raceway on Feb. 20, where they’ll perform the song live.  That performance will feature more than two dozen musicians, Bice says.  Sichon will have eight or nine students on stage, Bice will have a dozen of hers there, and a central band will round out the group. Kaitlin Holtsby and Caroline Samarodin will offer the vocals.  Many of the performers are younger, with an age range of five to 17. 

Jennie Bice, owner of Annwyn Studios in Mission, is the creator of the theme song for the BC Winter Games.

“It’s a pretty neat experience to unite so many players on stage,” Bice says. “It’s a big opportunity for them. How often do you get to present a tune for such a big event?” 

Winter Games opening ceremony is a career highlight. 

But even for an experienced performer like Hillhouse, one of the founders of the band Mad Pudding, performing at the BC

WE HIT THE

MARK

“It will be exciting,” he says. “I’ve just moved back to B.C. from Ontario, so it’s a nice arrival — to be involved in this right when I get back.”  He’s worked with Bice before, and while they have yet to perform the song in a full live rehearsal, he

knows she’s hit the mark.  “She did a great job,” he says. “The song perfectly fits the occasion.”  The BC Winter Games opening ceremonies will begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 20, at the Mission BC Games Event Centre located at Mission Raceway Park.

WELCOME TO MISSION BC WINTER GAMES FEBRUARY 20-23 BC GAMES HELPED LAUNCH HAYDEN By Dan KINVIG ABBOTSFORD NEWS

Brent Hayden, Mission’s own Olympic hero, is living proof that the BC Games can yield some mighty impressive returns. Back in 1998, Hayden was a 14-year-old member of the Fraser Valley swimming team at the BC Summer Games in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. He authored a dominant showing – six gold medals, one silver and two bronzes. “All those medals translated later on to that one Olympic medal,” Hayden said in an interview with Black Press last week, alluding to the bronze he won in the 100-metre freestyle at the 2012 London Summer Games. “It definitely made me a lot more confident and a lot more competitive as an athlete.”

experience, Hayden noted that 1998 was his first exposure to a sprawling multi-sport event. The experiences beyond the pool, he said, were as beneficial to his development as the competition itself. “Quite frankly, it’s very similar to what you experience at the Olympic Games or a Commonwealth Games – it’s just a smaller scale.” “A lot of times, athletes don’t get to experience being around athletes from other sports at the same time. When you go to a swim meet, you’re only around other swimmers.

Hayden, now retired from competitive swimming and residing in Vancouver, is thrilled that his hometown is hosting the BC Winter Games. He’ll be making an appearance at the opening ceremony, and his wife Nadina, a Nettwerk Records recording artist,  will be singing the national anthem.

“And I know when I went, we were all sleeping in a classroom in sleeping bags. It’s actually better that way, I think, because when you go to the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, it’s not always so glamorous. The beds are usually too small if you’re a bigger athlete (Hayden is 6’4”), and the mattresses are usually really cheap. I think it kind of teaches you as well that no matter what your living situation is, you still have to get up and perform.”

“I think it’s a great opportunity for Mission to showcase what they have in terms of the community and the local talent.”

Hayden’s glittering career included a gold medal in the 100m free at the 2007 world championships (he tied for first with Italy’s

TRANSITIONING FROM THE WORLD OF SPORTS Continued from previous page

“I’m mostly doing minimalist sort of landscapes. I like to get a painted sort of look that can only be achieved by using certain filters and things like that, dragging out the shutter speed. . . . I don’t like just recording what’s in front of me – I like transforming it into something else entirely, that you can only do with a camera.”

Filippo Magnini), along with three other silvers and a bronze at the worlds. He was also a double gold medalist at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, winning both the 50m and 100m free events. Now 30 years old, Hayden retired from swimming after his podium finish in London, and he acknowledged it hasn’t always been an easy transition. “It’s been tough . . . I definitely miss competition,” he said. “Watching the World Championships last summer on TV, it was actually kind of tearing at my emotional strings a little bit. I almost contemplated coming out of retirement and going for 2016 (the Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro). “But then I remembered that the reason I retired in London was wanting to go out the way I did. It was the perfect ending to my career, and I really didn’t want to ruin that.” These days, Hayden splits his time between artistic and athletic pursuits.

Hayden is also staying involved in swimming by doing private coaching and online video analysis.

Photography was a hobby when swimming monopolized his time, but his camera work is starting to take off. Some of his photos are currently on display at the Mission Art Centre, and he’s got another show scheduled for March 11-24 at the Cassera - Foot of Main Gallery in Vancouver. “It’s given me the chance to really work on my photography and take it from more of a hobby and a way to escape a depressing swim practice, and actually focus on it a little more professionally,” he noted.

“People submit videos of themselves swimming, and I kind of pick it apart and send back a PDF with a full breakdown of the things that they can work on,” he explained. “It’s very rewarding to me to give back to the swimming community – I’ve learned so much over the years, and I think it would be incredibly selfish of me to keep it all to myself and just move on from the sport.”

HEMLOCK GOOD TO GO FOR BC GAMES An unseasonably warm winter in the Fraser Valley initially led to questions if that would affect the BC Winter Games’ (BCWG) skiing events at Hemlock Valley Resort. However, contingency plans and a recent blast of cold and snow have improved the picture considerably. Hemlock is set to host both alpine and freestyle skiing during the Games, and while the weather has impacted conditions and organizers’ original plans, contingencies have been put in place to ensure the Games go off without a hitch. Jan Voss, chief of course for the BCWG, is in charge of preparing and maintaining the courses at Hemlock. He noted in a recent email that Hemlock typically hosts its alpine races on a run called Roddy’s, and that is still the

primary objective if the snowpack gets deep enough. Last week’s cold snap created 1.5 feet of “bulletproof snow,” according to Ross, which creates the fast, icy conditions that racers prefer. With the new powder predicted for this week, Voss is optimistic there will be more than enough depth on Roddy’s. This run is preferred because it means spectators, volunteers and workers will be in the sun, rather than the shade. Nevertheless, Plan already approved by BC – is to move the alpine to an east-facing run Timbercruiser.

“The run has lots of snow on it,” said Voss. “We are 100 per cent confident that the alpine races will proceed.” BC Alpine has also approved two potential alternate locations

for the ski cross course. Voss won’t know until Monday which alpine run will be used. The final decision will be based on how much snow is available to install the racing gates – the poles that racers ski around – as well as build the banked turns and roller features. Voss is thrilled at the expertise of the course builders and workers who are helping get Hemlock ready for the Games. Many have helped set

FROM THE CFL TO THE BC WINTER GAMES

By Lia THRELFALL

COMMUNICATION MANAGER, BC GAMES

What do CFL football and ringette have in common? Ask Richard White. As a young athlete, Richard was not on skates but, instead, applied his talents to the gridiron. He was a linebacker for Simon Fraser University’s football team and then was drafted by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1981, which led to a five-year career in the Canadian Football League.

What do you hope to accomplish by being a mentor coach for the BC Games?

Winter Games in Mission this February. In addition to his coaching duties, he is also taking part in the Female Coaching Mentor/ Apprentice Program and will be mentoring a female apprentice coach at the BC Winter Games. Here are a few Q&As with Richard White. How did you get involved in coaching ringette?

Richard started coaching ringette when his daughter became involved in the sport and has coached at the 2011 Canada Winter Games and the 2012 Junior World Championships.

My oldest daughter didn’t get into soccer in Grade 1 and she was very sad. One of her friends saw that she was sad and told her she could play a sport with her other friends. Her friend told her that there was lots of room on her ringette team and she could play with her. So, Lynita joined the team.

As head coach of Vancouver-Squamish Zone 5 ringette, Richard will lead his team to the 2014 BC

After the first year of watching the sport, and me having a little bit of experience of coaching I

offered to help out on the ice. The next thing I knew I was asked to head coach her team the next year. In the second year we placed second in the provincial championships and won a great many tournaments and the league championship. Over the past few years I have been offered positions coaching elite teams, which is a great honour. Lynita played for Team BC at the 2011 Canada Winter Games and has been part of the National Ringette League in Ontario for the

last five years. What do you love about coaching? I love to see players want to come back and take on the challenge of getting better at their sport. I really love watching players develop and improve. I also love mentoring new coaches in the sport, because it is something where I really see improvement being needed. So many times at the most important time for a player’s development is when we have the least experienced coaches working with them.

My goal for being a mentor is making ringette better in B.C. I would like to accomplish this by introducing coaches to all aspects of preparing a player for an elite-level competition. This way the newer coaches can go back with a complete arsenal of information that they can use when they feel comfortable trying it. Why do you think a program to mentor female coaches is important? In the sport that I coach, where the majority of players are female, it gives the players a person that they can relate to as an athlete that would understand their way of thinking. Also, this gives our local communities all the way up to our

country, a more diverse level of coaching, with a more balanced view on dealing with challenges. In order to have your athletes believe that there are opportunities out there they need to see people that have achieved and accomplished goals and opportunities that they may someday want to be in that position. What are you most looking forward to at the 2014 BC Winter Games? I am looking forward to introducing a fresh batch of athletes to what high-level performance is all about. It is an incredible feeling when new people show their excitement for something they have never experienced and want more of. The Coaching Mentor/Apprentice Program is a partnership of the BC Games Society, ViaSport and Promotion Plus and provides mentoring opportunities for female coaches at the BC Winter and BC Summer Games.

LOCAL DANCERS FOR OPENING CEREMONIES By Jessica PETERS BLACK PRESS

It’s all coming together. As more than 1,000 athletes and their coaches count down the days to the BC Winter Games, one group of dancers and their choreographer are ticking down the moments as well. Ticking, clicking, tapping and swishing. Choreographer Debbie Calicetto, owner of CanDance Studio in Mission, has been working with a group of almost 50 local dancers for the past four months. Together, they’ll be performing a 10-minute dance as part of the Games opening ceremonies Thursday, Feb. 20, at the Mission BC Games Event Centre at Mission Raceway Park. “What they asked me to do was to put together a dance that conveys the spirit of the Games,” she said. To achieve

that effect, she has created segments that represent each of the sports played at the Games. Those sports include curling, basketball, judo, karate, skiing events, speed skating, and many more. To find the right dancers, Calicetto held two days of auditions, to which more than 100 dancers showed up. She narrowed it down to 47 youth, ages seven to 18. Some happened to be her own students from CanDance. The excitement is growing amongst the young group. “They’re very keen, and they’re showing up for all the practices,” she said. Once they take the stage, they’ll all remain in action for the entire dance, Calicetto said. But that won’t be difficult for the experienced teacher. “It’s totally fine for me,” she said. “I like big groups. It looks

a little more dramatic.” Calicetto feels confident that she and her troupe will be in fine form for the opening ceremony, a huge event that includes a live presentation of the official BC Winter Games Theme song, and much more. Calicetto has been teaching dance in the Mission area for 25 years, and this is her second time working with the Games committee. When the Summer Games were held in Abbotsford in 2004, she was asked to create a dance segment for the opening ceremonies as well. That year, she chose a circus theme. She said it’s wonderful that the entertainment component of the Games, including the theme music, is all being handled by local artists. “It’s an honour to be a part of a community event that is bigger than the community itself,” she said. “It’s a great honour to be a part this.”

Debbie Calicetto, with some students from her studio, is the choreographer for the 2014 BC Winter Games.
