Renowned lawyer passes Career spanned 37 years on both sides of courtroom Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

JACK HARRIS

Abbotsford lawyer Jack Harris was waiting for his turn in court a few years ago, and the case before him was taking some time. A man who was defending himself was suing someone for about $100 – but the plaintiff’s inexperience with the law was drawing out

the proceedings. Finally, Harris rose from his seat, pulled about $200 out of his pocket and presented it to the man, saying, “Will this satisfy you?” The plaintiff agreed that it would, the judge declared an end to the matter, and the other court issues were able to move ahead. This straightforward and gener-

ous manner was typical of Harris, says Abbotsford Coun. John Smith. Smith is among the numerous friends, family and citizens mourning Harris’ death this week. Harris, 69, died Wednesday of a heart attack after collapsing in a Vancouver restaurant, where he had met a friend for lunch. Continued on A4

The film, featuring Bethany Joy Lenz from One Tree Hill and John Reardon from Arctic Air, filmed exterior scenes in front of the Spruce Collective, renamed Wilson’s Collective for the movie, on Montrose Avenue. Interior shots were done inside local businesses earlier in the week. On Thursday, much of the street was adorned with snow and Christmas decorations to set the scene for the film.

Well, lookie here. One minute you have a perfectly good Blue Box recycling program. The next, something new and rather questionable is being put in its place. And they thought they’d get away with it right under your nose, without telling you or asking your opinion. That’s definitely not democracy in action. The BC Government, elected by us to represent our best interests, has decided to offload the costs of recycling to big multi-national corporations. To implement this new plan, they’ve set up an association that doesn’t really seem to hold the environment, local jobs, or the municipalities that run the Blue Box program, close to its heart.

Perhaps that’s why some of our local elected officials are using the word “scam” to describe how the new program is being set up. It’s also perhaps why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to jump on board. That’s gotta tell you something. Now it’s your turn to let Premier Christy Clark know what you think. Contact her today to say that dismantling an already-working recycling program to replace it with something that few people think will be as good, is a bad idea.

What’s going on here?

2014 homeless count conducted Service providers believe number could rise

Abbotsford News

There’s a story behind every smile...

Patient Testimonial

Prior to being a patient with Dr’s Surdhar and Lui, I’d have described myself as an “apprehensive” patient. The one that wishes the upcoming circled date on the calendar was past. After a few procedures with the dentists at Bridgeview Dental I can happily say that I no longer dread the upcoming appointments and look forward to seeing the friendly dental team and having my dental work done. Even a recent extraction and implant that followed was without discomfort. I feel confident in the treatment they provide me knowing they keep up with what’s new in the dental field with their continuing education and study club participation. Heather

Volunteers fanned out Tuesday in hopes of finding those who are homeless, to obtain more information about who they are and how they live. Ward Draper, a pastor with 5 and 2 Ministries and a co-ordinator of the survey in Abbotsford, said they “are trying to get a snapshot of what’s happening in the Valley.” Results will be released later this spring. The last Fraser Valley Regional District homelessness survey was conducted in 2011, and the data was compiled in a report by Anita van Wyk of the University of the Fraser Valley and Ron

While numbers dropped between 2008 and 2011 due to some of the difficulties in data collection, Draper said it wouldn’t be surprising to see the number rise again. “The core homeless guys are still the same homeless guys I’ve seen for years. If anything, I’ve seen new faces, more women, and a lot more First Nations.”

‘Lived life 150 per cent all of the time’

From A1

He leaves behind five daughters – Amber, Krista, Jessica, Anika and Elise – as well as seven grandchildren and his wife, Lynne, who served as an Abbotsford school trustee for 15 years and a city councillor for nine years before leaving politics in 2011. Smith, a good friend of Harris and family, said his death is a huge loss not only for the world of law but for the community as a whole. “He was just a real high-energy individual who gave so much back,” Smith said. He said Harris was a staple at many charitable events and was often the first to pull out his chequebook and make a donation. Harris was also known to pick up the tab for school kids buying candy at the corner store near his residence. Smith said Harris always had an “affable, positive attitude about life.” “Jack Harris lived life 150 per cent all of the time.” Abbotsford Crown

University of the Fraser Valley photo

Abbotsford lawyer Jack Harris is shown in 2008 when he accepted his honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of the Fraser Valley. prosecutor Wayne Norris, who has known Harris for 34 years, described his friend as the “quintessential courtroom lawyer “– a true gentleman who was never at a loss for words and who was genuinely concerned about people. “He lived large – very outgoing, always willing to help, generous of spirit, generous of pocket,” Norris said. He said Harris was

always quick to give whenever he was asked to support charity, and he often went into debt to take on cases for people who couldn’t afford the legal fees. In the courtroom, Harris garnered respect from both Crown and fellow defence lawyers, Norris said. “Jack was the consummate professional. He was always the gentleman, and he

always played fair … and it was always entertaining. He had a great sense of humour, a quick wit.” At the B.C. legislature on Thursday morning, Abbotsford West MLA Mike de Jong addressed Harris’ passing. “Jack, in addition to being a remarkable trial lawyer and skilled jurist, was noted for his zest, love of life, his sense of humour – frequently revealed in the

strange circumstances that often characterize very serious trials and criminal trials,” de Jong said. Harris’ law career spanned 37 years. He and his family moved to Abbotsford in the 1970s. He commuted to Burnaby for many years, first as a Crown prosecutor, then as a partner in a law firm. In 1993, he moved his solo practice to Abbotsford, setting up the G. Jack Harris Law Office on Justice Way, across from the Abbotsford Police Department. His early practice included commercial and civil litigation, corporate law, family law and appeals, but he later dedicated the majority of his practice to criminal law. In 2008, Harris was awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of the Fraser Valley, where he had taught criminal justice part-time. Details for Harris’ memorial service were not finalized by press deadline. Check abbynews.com for updates.

Coach charged with sex offence Abbotsford man accused of Langley incident An Abbotsford man who coaches gymnastics in Langley has been charged with sexual interference. John William Henry, 32, was arrested last Thursday (March 6) and has been remanded in custody. He next appears in court on Friday, March 14. Henry coaches with the Langley Gymnastics Foundation. Cpl. Holly Marks, media relations officer with the Langley RCMP, said police began their investigation last Thursday after receiving a report alleging inappropriate conduct by Henry.

The Langley RCMP’s serious crime unit is handling the continuing investigation and would like to hear from anyone with information that could further their efforts, Marks said. She said further details about the alleged incident will not be released because the matter is now before the courts. Marks said the Langley RCMP’s client support and victim services is available to provide support and guidance to those impacted by the investigation.

Calling All Performers Have a great act that you would love to perform on Canada Day? We want to hear from you. Every July 1, main stage comes alive with local performers. 10-15 min. slots available. Canada Day regularly attracts an average of 14,000 guests. Please send a video clip and your information to Tamaka Fisher, City of Abbotsford Arts & Heritage Coordinator at tfisher@abbotsford.ca by April 30, 2014. Your submission will be reviewed by the Canada Day Entertainment Committee. This years’ theme is “Beach Party” so submissions best related to the theme will receive better consideration.

Abbotsford and Mission will work together to review the issue of railroad safety and the transport of dangerous goods through the communities. Coun. Jeff Jewell of Mission and Coun. Henry Braun of Abbotsford submitted a report to their respective councils Feb. 17, suggesting the cities undertake a study to identify the exposures, estimate risk levels, and recommend any risk mitigation options of rail transport. Though the responsibility for rail safety and regulation falls on the federal and provincial govern-

ments, the report states that municipalities have a responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their residents and to keep first responders up to date on the necessary safety protocols. The report calls for the process to include meetings and correspondence with the operating companies involved, as well as appropriate federal and provincial regulatory bodies. Jewell told Mission council, “I don’t know if we can do a whole lot. At the very least we need to learn a lot more about what the risks are and try to get the atten-

tion of authorities and maximize safety in our community.” Braun said that he is not opposed to transporting dangerous goods, but there are increased concerns in light of recent rail accidents in North America that should be addressed. A report from Abbotsford city manager George Murray suggested that as the issue affects a number of Fraser Valley municipalities, council may wish to contact other cities to work together, allowing them to share any potential legal fees associated with a study.

IMAGINE WHAT ABBOTSFORD WILL LOOK LIKE IN 2020 Maybe you can see our city having lower taxes, creating a better environment for small business, stimulating jobs, improved transit or solving social issues. WE ARE ASKING YOU...

WHAT IS YOUR BOLD IDEA FOR ABBOTSFORD? Our goal is to stimulate conversations from Abbotsford residents to bring ideas and issues to the table for this year’s review of the Official Community Plan and the fall Municipal election.

140 kids now get ‘backpack’ food Program has grown to serve nine schools Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

An Abbotsford program that helps feed kids who otherwise might go hungry on the weekends is now serving nine schools and 140 children. Plans are in place to expand the Blessings in a Backpack program even further. The update was announced Tuesday during a weekly luncheon meeting for the Rotary Club of Abbotsford, which supports and helps co-ordinate the program. Bruce Beck, the club’s director of community services, said $80,000 has so far been raised in the community, enabling Blessings in a Backpack to grow from the two schools that were involved at the beginning of the school year. Beck said there are still more kids in need, and the fundraising efforts will continue. The program began through the Abbotsford Food Bank with funding from

the Rotary Club of Abbotsford. It was recognized that although many kids are supported through school breakfast and lunch programs during the week, their families struggle to feed them on the weekends. One elementary school and 10 kids were involved in the pilot program for the 2012/13 school year. Each backpack is filled with two breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners, and dropped off at school for the kids to take home each Friday. The empty packs are then returned and refilled. The program was expanded at the beginning of the 2013/14 school year to include two schools and 60 children. The Rotary Club donated $22,000 towards the food and the purchase of the backpacks, and the rest of the community was approached for support. The cost of providing the backpacks for one child for the entire school year is $525,

and businesses and other agencies have been urged to sponsor as many children as they can. Last week, for example, the Abbotsford Community Foundation announced it will provide a $10,500 grant to fund 20 children for the year. Support for the program has also come through local churches, which have provided volunteers who shop for the food each week, fill the backpacks, drop them off at the schools, and pick them up. Northview Community Church, Ross Road Church and Hill City Church were acknowledged with certificates of appreciation at the Rotary luncheon, as were 23 businesses, individuals and organizations that have made donations. To donate to the program, call the Abbotsford Food Bank at 604-859-5749 or contact Bruce Beck at bbb1771@shawbiz. ca.

Focus on youth and good choices School project aimed at keeping teens out of gangs A video and four posters created by students at Rick Hansen Secondary are aimed at steering young people away from gangs and a criminal lifestyle. The series will be distributed in local schools. The short video is the work of seven students who took on the project after participating in a “Choices” workshop facilitated in November by the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) and three undergraduate students of the Kwantlen Polytechnic University. The Choices program is aimed at preventing youth crime, with workshops that focus on character strengths while highlighting the significance of making right choices at life’s turning points. The fundamentals of family, friendship and community are also emphasized. The video depicts a

Forget government issues, pass the muffins Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views Proceedings here at the B.C. legislature were briefly thrust into the spotlight last week, firing up the radio talk shows and twitter feeds. No, it wasn’t the B.C. Liberal government forcing through legislation to allow industrial “research” for things like pipeline routes in provincial parks, or the debate on sanctioned wolf and grizzly kills. It wasn’t the teacher strike vote, as the scripted motions of that ritual combat are well known to weary parents. It was muffins. More specifically, “free” muffins in a newly relocated and equipped MLA lounge, and a rack installed to hold the said muffins at a cost of $733. This was portrayed as part of a spending spree by Richmond East MLA Linda Reid, elected Speaker last summer. In fact it’s just the latest phase of a strikingly expensive refit to provide wheelchair access,

which Reid has championed. The new MLA lounge replaces a seldomused one at the top of steep stairs high in the 1898 stone structure. The new lounge is served by a ramp near the chamber exit to another under-used room in the library, and equipped with big-screen TVs to follow proceedings, similar to those installed in the legislature chamber last year. Everything done here is expensive, from matching ornate woodwork to upgrading ancient plumbing and wiring. But the public, conditioned by media to expect corruption and scandal, would rather be outraged about free muffins. Prior to this, MLAs had to troop down to the basement dining room to put muffins and coffee on their expense accounts, or have an assistant fetch them. The outraged talk shows didn’t mention that. There are access issues in the dining room too, a fact more difficult to ignore

with Children and Family Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux, Paralympian Michelle Stilwell and former Vancouver mayor Sam Sullivan now elected to serve using their wheelchairs. A costly new outside access ramp assisted Kenny Michell, who visited last week to tell his harrowing story of the Burns Lake sawmill explosion that nearly burned him to death in 2012 and left him in a wheelchair. The NDP brought a delegation of survivors and family members of the dead from sawdust explosions in Burns Lake and Prince George. They supported the opposition’s demand for an independent inquiry, although their own demands ranged from  counselling  for long-suffering wives to seeing someone punished for alleged negligence. The scandal pushed in this tragic story is that some evidence was not protected by WorkSafeBC and wouldn’t have been admissible in court. Prosecutors also said they had enough evidence for charges, but

But the public, conditioned by media to expect corruption and scandal, would rather be outraged about free muffins.

the companies or executives would be able to show “due diligence” that would likely result in acquittal. What that means in English is that the explosion risk of extra-dry dust and air wasn’t fully grasped by either mill operators or WorkSafeBC. All B.C. mills are now subject to more scrutiny, and a coroner’s inquest will be calling witnesses this fall to see what lessons can be learned. Back to pipelines through parks. This may seem like a scandal to urban B.C. residents who already fret about the possibility of the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline, or one of several proposed gas pipelines, intruding on a park. It’s not as well known that Trans Mountain completed a major twinning and upgrading project on the Alberta side in 2008.

Explain plans to remedy homelessness cluding the homeless. What I don’t understand is why you have refused to show your compassion.  Just saying “no” and leaving it at that is not good enough.  I’m sure that you are doing things behind the scenes to help address the issue of homelessness in Abbotsford, but this community needs to see you actively on stage, not just behind the scenes.  Why not open up the discussion and explain (probably for the millionth time) why you made the decision

you made and what actions you plan on taking to begin to remedy the issue of homelessness in Abbotsford.  Not just elusive ideas that you plan on implementing sometime in the future, but practical things that you are starting to do today, if not as a city, then as an individual who cares about his community. As frustrating and infuriating as this situation is to me, I have to say that some good has come out of it in my own life. As I have been fighting to

give a voice to the homeless, I have been inspired to give more than just a voice. I have been inspired to be more intentional with building relationships and sharing my time and resources with people in Abbotsford who need it (even when it is not a “hot topic”).   I’m sure you will be pleased to know that I will use my frustration with injustice and put it into practical action within our community. Laura Vegt Abbotsford

Residents shouldn’t be forced to pay tolls Various news reports have indicated the alleged heavy traffic on the Pattullo Bridge is due to drivers trying to escape the tolls on the Port Mann Bridge. The issue has again surfaced in discussing possible solutions, including the suggestion that the Pattullo Bridge be replaced with a four-lane structure with tolls applied. As a resident of the Fraser Valley I would ask the reasoning for tolls on either bridge. The cost of the bridges to

the North Shore was fully paid for by all B.C. residents and neither of these bridges have any tolls. It therefore seems reasonable to me that residents of the Fraser Valley should not be forced to pay tolls, and payment for the bridges should come from general revenue or other accounts within the provincial government. If the elected Liberal MLAs were doing their job they would be pressing for genuine equality for all residents.

Randy Savard

Tragically, they are more concerned with covering up weaknesses within our current Liberal government than taking appropriate action to rectify this inequality. There are many other issues that seriously affect the average citizen such as the completely immoral action in charging for parking at hospitals – an action that is nothing less than a direct tax on the sick and their families. To make matters worse, people are required to guess

the length of time they will require and must prepay accordingly with absolutely no way of obtaining any refund for the time not used and, in addition, the company that oversees said parking receives 100 per cent of all fines from tickets placed on vehicles. I would appreciate an honest response from at least one of our MLAs showing how the above matters reflect any fairness or equality. Frank Wirrell, Abbotsford

An open letter to Mayor Bruce Banman, re: homeless issue. I totally understand that you are between a rock and a hard place. No matter what decision you make, someone is going to be angry.  You had to make the best decision you could with the information you had, and although I believe that you made the wrong decision, it was your decision to make.  I also believe that you have a caring heart for Abbotsford and all of its members, in-

City wants Health Canada to provide legal grow locations Council will ask UBCM to lobby senior government for addresses Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

The city is hoping the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) will endorse a plan to petition Health Canada to provide addresses for all grow operations licensed in the city. Each year, UBCM asks municipalities for resolutions, and if endorsed at the annual

convention, give UBCM the mandate to lobby senior government on the issues. As the country shifts to commercial growops instead of personal home production for medical marijuana, many municipalities are concerned about ensuring homes formerly used for growops are properly reme-

diated. Health Canada does not release the addresses of legal grows to ensure patient privacy. Council plans to send their resolution to UBCM for consideration, explaining that the lack of addresses makes it difficult to ensure the safety of residents.

A report from staff states that while the city knows of about 120 locations, they believe there to be about 800. Staff has concerns that although growops must shut down by April 1, some residents may not comply and they would like to be able to inspect the homes to ensure public safety.

Homeless file suit against municipality Lawyers representing Abbotsford’s homeless met with city representatives and a judge last week in New Westminster to ask for a trial date to be set as soon as possible to discuss the city’s bylaw against camping in parks. In December, the court granted the city an injunction to remove a homeless protest camp from Jubilee Park. The city plans to ask the court to grant a similar order allowing the city to enforce its bylaws against camping or

erecting a tent in any park in Abbotsford. Pivot Legal Society is representing the homeless, and will argue that the city’s bylaw is unconstitutional. The meeting was related to scheduling and various pre-trial steps, and a trial date is not yet known. Lawyers from Pivot say many of Abbotsford’s homeless are members of the BC/ Yukon Association of Drug War Survivors and they asked the group to file the lawsuit on

their behalf. “They are criminalizing the very existence of these people. Laws that prohibit a person from existing and protecting their basic safety and security are not constitutional and Drug War Survivors will be asking the court to strike those laws down,” said DJ Larkin, a lawyer with Pivot Legal Society. Drug War Survivors is asking for the case to be heard this summer and will be back in court the first week in April to set trial dates.

Teachers head to Africa with Run for Water

Alina KONEVSKI

Abbotsford News

Hearing about some children’s daily struggle to collect water is one thing. Experiencing it is another. To bring home the message that some kids in other countries have a much

more difficult daily routine, Pat Kennaley, a Grade 4/5 teacher at Alexander Elementary in Abbotsford, did an experiment. She marched her young students the 1.5 km to Mill Lake one hot day in June 2013. The kids cheerfully waded into the water, each filling 20-litre jerry

cans, and tried to do a lap around the lake. “They could barely move them more than 10 feet because they were so heavy. So we emptied the cans half out, and from there they struggled with the cans around the lake,” said Kennaley. The students loved

last year’s “walk for water,” she said. She’s doing it with her current class in May. But before then, Kennaley and six other Fraser Valley teachers are flying to Ethiopia to see the charity Run for Water in action. Continued on A19

Every year, the Run for Water Society holds a variety of runs – 5 km, 10 km, half marathon, full marathon and 55 km ultra run – in Abbotsford to fundraise for clean water projects in Ethiopia. In 2013, 4,830 runners came out. The organization has raised $1 million since it launched in 2007. The seven teachers, five of whom are from the Abbotsford school district, one from Chilliwack, and one from Agassiz, will set off on the 13-day trip on Friday. They will be accompanied by one high school student and two Run for Water Society members. The group will visit three different communities: one that has clean water after a successful Run for Water project; one where a Run for Water project is ongoing; and one that’s slated for a future project. “It’s a terrific opportunity to engage my students in issues like this and bring back more to the classroom,” said Kennaley. “When kids are needing to walk up to six hours a day to get water, it’s generally the girls that are doing this, and they’re not going to school. With water access, school becomes a possibility.” The teachers will also be contributing to Run for Water’s existing K-12 teaching curriculum, through which the organization teaches students about the project, and the connection between water and education. Each travelling teacher needs to cover most of the $3,500 cost of the trip. Envision Financial, a title sponsor of Run for Water, has kicked in $1,000 of that per teacher. The financial institution will also create a video based on the teachers’ trip. This year’s Envision Financial Run for Water in Abbotsford is on May 25, 2014. Registration is at abbotsford.runforwater.ca/.

Gardening starts with Seedy Saturday Event at Edenvale Community Garden

Click on the AHL - HEAT CENTRAL link

As the weather heats up, have you started thinking about your garden? A local non-profit is holding its third annual seed swap and market this Saturday in west Abbotsford. The Seedy Saturday event is organized by the Valley Permaculture Guild, a gardening nonprofit in Abbotsford co-founded by Kayle

INTERIOR TO LOWER MAINLAND TRANSMISSION LINE PROJECT Public Safety Notice – Winter recreationalists and snowmobilers 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.

Feenstra of Dragonlily Gardens. There will be guest speakers and workshops on all things organic g ardening. The diverse list of local vendors includes cheese producer Smits & Co., Tower Gardens, an organic rose grower, and Chillibabies, which makes cloth diapers and other items for children.

Many vendors will showcase seed, plant, and soil products. “Bring your seeds and swap with others who’ve collected over the year, and even if you don’t have any seeds to bring, there are always extras to give away,” Feenstra says of the event. There will be seed catalogues from Irish Eyes, Johnny’s Select, and West Coast Seeds.

The community is invited to bring something for the potluck. Seedy Saturday will be on March 15 at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Edenvale Community Garden and Education Centre (4460 Bradner Rd.) Interested organic vendors can contact organizers through valleypermacultureguild@gmail.com.

Symphony seeks musicians

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.

Smell ‘n’ tell

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.

Dining in the Dark fundraises for CNIB Unique dining event is coming to Abbotsford for one night only Imagine not being able to see, and having a whole meal in pitch darkness with nothing but the other senses as guides. That’s the idea behind Dining in the Dark. The event is coming for one night only to Abbotsford and proceeds go to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), an organization which supports people who are blind or partially sighted. “Challenge your palate and pick out the mysteries of the menu as your senses will be heightened when you dine in the dark. Enjoy a three-course gourmet meal like never before,” notes organizer Urban Xperience on its website. Diners will wear blindfolds and navigate their meal with help from the servers. There will be a choice of three mains, but

the appetizer and dessert will be surprises. At the end of the meal, diners will be able to see if they guessed right by re-

ceiving a description of what they ate. The event is March 29, at Abbotsford’s Sandman Hotel. Cocktail hour be-

gins at 6 p.m., with all guests requested to show up by 6:30 p.m. Blindfolds go on at 7 p.m. Tickets are $65, cocktails not in-

cluded. Deadline to purchase tickets is March 24. Full details are at www.urbanxevents. com.

The Abbotsford Grand Squares square dance club raised just over $1,800 for Zajac Ranch on March 2 during its annual fundraiser. Fifty dancers from around the region came out for the event at the Abbotsford Social Activity Association hall. The club was a longtime supporter of the Salvation Army and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Early in 2013, club members decided to support the Zajac Ranch as an annual event. The family of Mel and Wendy Zajac provide camping experiences every summer on the shores of Stave Lake in Mission for more than 500 children aged seven to 17 who have chronic, debilitating and life-threatening conditions.

DID YOU KNOW...? ON AVERAGE, YOUR BRAKE FLUID SHOULD BE FLUSHED AND REPLACED EVERY 36 MONTHS

BRAKE FLUID FLUSH Corrosion is the #1 cause of brake component failure. Corrosion can pit the metal bores of the master cylinder, and ABS components. Just like engine oil, coolant and transmission fluid, brake fluid “wears” over time. Not only does brake fluid wear, but the internal brake components also wear, producing “slude”. This leaves the brake system vulnerable to corrosion and compromise.

Panthers survive upset bid

# 1 SELLING TRACTOR IN THE WORLD!

Top seed wins opening game at AAA hoops provincials Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

DAN KINVIG Abbotsford News

Jordan Goheen of the Abby Senior Panthers takes the ball to the hoop at AAA provincials.

No. 1 seeds aren’t expected to break a sweat in the first round, but the North Peace Oscars made the Abbotsford Senior Panthers work for everything they got in their opener at AAA high school boys basketball provincials. The top-ranked Panthers, fresh off a Fraser Valley championship, appeared to be in cruise control early in the third quarter on Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre. After building a 47-35 lead at halftime, they reeled off a 10-0 run to open the third quarter, pushing the lead to 22. But the Fort St. John-based Oscars never quit –  the No. 16 seed cut the Abby advantage down to four, at 81-77

with less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Panthers steadied themselves, though. Chase Claypool swished a threepointer to expand the lead to seven, and on the next possession, Jamie Konrad flipped a no-look pass to Jordan Goheen for a layup to provide the final 86-77 margin. Claypool (19 points, 11 rebounds) and Sirban Gill (19 points, 14 boards) both posted double-doubles for Abby Senior. The Panthers took on the Wellington Wildcats of Nanaimo in the quarter-finals on Thursday evening, but that result was unavailable at press time.

Pilots eliminated by Kodiaks, shift focus to Keystone Cup Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

First, the bad news: The Abbotsford Pilots are out of the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs. The Aldergrove Kodiaks saw to that, beating the Pilots 7-3 at Aldergrove Community Arena on Wednesday to close out a 4-1 series victory in the PJHL semi-

finals. Now, the good news: The Pilots' season isn't over. They've now got a month to rest, get healthy and prepare for the Keystone Cup –  the Western Canadian junior B hockey championship tournament, which they'll be hosting at Abbotsford Recreation Centre April 17-20. That silver lining aside, Pilots

coach Jim Cowden was none too pleased with the early playoff exit. He wasn't a fan of his team's work ethic on Wednesday, and he speculated that having a guaranteed Keystone berth may have factored into that. "When you already have that carrot, it's harder to motivate," he noted.

A question I’m asked often when listing a property is ‘How long will it take to sell?’ There are of course many determining factors, such as: Price - too high or very competitive, Condition - ready to move into or needing lots of TLC, Location - quiet cul de sac or busy thoroughfare, Style - rancher with no stairs or 2 storey + bsmt. But there are some averages to somewhat go by. In Abbotsford in February, condos took about 80 days to sell, townhomes about 65 days to sell, detached homes about 60 days to sell and house & acreage about 138 days to sell. While there will certainly be exceptions of some places selling much faster or some taking longer, this can be used as a gauge. To help determine your possible days to sell give me a call to set up a time to meet.

Well folks, I originally started selling farms and ranches  many years ago, in 1979, and was lucky to be joined by my son for the last 14 years.  We do all kinds of farms!  We know them and it is our love to see agriculture continue, wether it is in the valley or the 100 Mile House Area.  Having lived on a farm our whole life with a strong University background in agriculture we get the job done.  We offer  the best of advertising, pictorial promotions, websites, and overseas promotions.  We try to keep in touch with the latest municipal, provincial, and federal changes, which will encourage the new farmer starting out.

Spiel season in high gear Jim ANDERSON Curling columnist

The Abbotsford Curling Club hosted its annual mixed spiel Feb. 21-23 and, being ever aware of current events, adopted an Olympic theme. This is not to suggest that the quality of the curling rivalled Jennifer Jones or Brad Jacobs, but reportedly the exuberance was comparable. Team Jamaica won A event, due no doubt to their bobsled icereading experience. The inimitable Team Beerinstein led by Linda Wishoff and her able vice-skip Rex, defeated Team Fell in the B event. Event C2 was won by Señor Trask who beat Dewirth of France like a cheap piñata. Finally, C1 saw

Aussie Bonneau leap over Team Hambland. Hambland was ably represented by the prolific Hambly family led by great grandpa Reg (age 86), grandpa Jim (only slightly younger), granddaughter Kristal (in her prime) and great granddaughter Mikeala (age 15). Proving once again that curling is a great sport for all ages, fielding a four-generational team is a unique accomplishment. The Hambly family are to be congratulated. The Abbotsford ladies spiel was also held last month, with Team Kim from Korea beating Team Deputan of Chilliwack in the A final. Team Sand beat Team May in an all-Abby B final, while Team Collins beat Team Copeland in the C final.

Cascades win Kwantlen tourney The University of the Fraser Valley men's soccer team won the Kwantlen Cup tournament in Surrey. The Cascades blanked host Kwantlen 2-0 in their opener, with goals from Kree Byrne and Dylan Jordan, and Arturo Ortiz posting the shutout. UFV beat the defending national champion UBC Thunderbirds in the final on penalties, after the score was tied 1-1 in regulation. Colton O'Neill scored the Cascades' goal in the 83rd minute.

The Hambly clan put together a four-generation team at the Abbotsford mixed bonspiel, featuring Reg, Jim (son) and Kristal Hambly (granddaughter), and Mikaela Turnbull (great granddaughter).

CANADA’S FAVORITE MID-SIZED CAR IS HERE!

2014 CAMRY

So far, I’ve looked at econo cars at the lower end of the market. No point in me offering price details because all Euro cars are substantially more expensive than the same examples sold here in Canada. Finally, I cast a close eye over the Audi S1, which is a hot sportback version of the popular A1. It comes with a 228hp 2.0-litre turbocharged gas engine capable of hitting 100 km/h in less than six seconds. I will reveal it will sell for more than $40,000 in the UK. It’s fast, it’s a premium offering and I’ll eat my hat if it shows up here. All of the above have great fuel economy going for them and most are competitively priced. The common keys to their success likely come down to two key factors. Impressive fuel consumption numbers matter because fuel in Europe is substantially more expensive than here. And Europe is crawling with folks going about their daily duties on often far less land and road space. While there is a greater acceptance of smaller vehicles in our cities, people outside urban areas have more ground to cover and so are tempted by larger vehicles, especially as a first family vehicle. And the truth is that the advances in fuel saving technology means there’s not a massive difference between the econo-cars and small family sedans. And perhaps a bigger factor is for “an extra $20 a month, madam, you could have the roominess and utility of this car.” A line heard in most dealerships, most days. And the sales people are not wrong. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

MURRAY GM PRESENTS...

The diminutive Fiat 500 goes big By Alexandra Straub

The Fiat 500 is cute but might not be the most practical choice as a family vehicle. Enter the all-new-for-2014 Fiat 500L: The “L” stands for “large” so those interior volume deficiencies listed with its pint-sized sibling are no more. Dimensionally, the L is 27 inches longer, 6 inches taller in height and in width and there’s an extra 42 percent when it comes to inside space. But wait, there’s more. Literally. The L comes with two additional doors to allow for easy access to the rear seats. And room for five passengers. It loses a little bit of its pinch-the-cheeks cuteness but its practicality makes up for it. In the driver’s seat, you have an almost unadulterated outward visibility. The 500L features a

segment-exclusive glass from the A- to D-pillars that provide nearly 360-degree panoramic views. Parking is easy because you can pretty much see out of all four corners. And the 500L – even with its “large” designation – still fits comfortably into urban settings. Driving the 500L, I noticed it doesn’t have quite the same amount of panache as the 500 Turbo. Granted, it’s a heavier vehicle. But to still keep some of the driving fun behind the wheel, Fiat has outfitted it with a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine that provides 160 horsepower, 184 lb-ft. of torque. It’s also available with two transmission options. Firstly, there’s a 6-speed manual. Then there’s an available 6-Speed Euro Twin Clutch “automatic.” The latter of the two costs an additional $1,450 and came equipped on my 500L Lounge trim.

To be honest, this dual clutch transmission was my least favourite part of the vehicle. It felt as though the gearing was off or it had some sort of gremlin inside causing a ruckus to disturb the smooth functionality of what I would have expected. On the flip side, there’s nothing that I felt was fundamentally wrong with it. The transmission changed gears, got the car moving and did exactly what it was supposed to do. It also just felt weird/awkward to me and unlike any other dual clutch transmission, I’ve operated. Perhaps it is one of those features I would just need to get used to over time but our time together wasn’t long enough for me to embrace its quirks! There were, however, other highlights of the 500L. The Lounge trim comes standard with leather trimmed bucket seats and front heated seats, perfect

for those chilly mornings. An upgraded item that was optioned on the L was the Uconnect system with a 6.5inch screen (the standard is a 5-inch screen) complete with Bluetooth, Sirius satellite radio and a Beats Premium Audio System ($500.) If you’re a music lover, this is a great to add to a Fiat. Hill Start Assist and 4− Wheel ABS brakes are part of its DNA along with a ParkView rear back−up camera, dual zone climate controls and steering wheel mounted audio controls. When cruising along at highway speeds, road noise is kept to a minimum, which allowed me to enjoy the music via the Beats stereo system a little more. In corners, the 500L doesn’t have as tight of a setup as the 500, so don’t push it too hard since body roll is more evident.

Confessions of a Curber I was itching to sell another car. I‘d spent my first cash quickly. The new TV looked great in my living room. So I scrounged the dealer lots in my neighbourhood. I found the perfect car at a small dealership not far from my house. Gray with four doors. Everything was still intact, but it was priced low. The dealer gave me the car’s history right away. It had been in three accidents over its lifetime. Nothing too major, but damage was done and repaired. I couldn’t spot the repairs. So, I happily bought it and registered it. I didn’t want my wife and kids to know what I was up to, so I parked it around the block. I knew it would be gone in a few days. This time, I used Kijiji and Craigslist. “Car for sale. Served me well, but wife wants a new car. Accident and damage free. Looking to sell fast, low price. Cash only. Call cell for info.” I got a text message from a woman across town. I told her I’d meet her at a nearby gas station and would throw in a free tank of gas. She was thrilled. When I met her, she told me that she needed a cheap, dependable vehicle to get to her new job. She’dd been taking the bus for weeks and was tired of her commute. To my annoyance, she wanted to check the vehicle thoroughly. So I distracted her. I told her I was sad to let “my baby” go, but I

wanted to keep my wife happy. She nodded sympathetically. As she handed me the money, she asked if the vehicle was in any accidents. Now, I’m not a good liar. So I simply said, No. It’s her fault for not asking for a CarProof or ICBC vehicle history report. That seemed to do it. She was pleased and drove away with a smile on her face. As for me, I went home with a fat wallet. A few days later, I got a text: “Got CarProof report. Three accidents?!?!? Need money back now!!!” I panicked. But not for long. I was getting good at this. I just got a new cell number. She didn’t know my name – that old fake ID worked great. And she had no idea where I lived. Finding me would wear her out. I was in the clear. But will I be so lucky next time? *Curber – An individual posing as a private seller, but selling vehicles for profit as a business. A curber often misrepresents the history and condition of a vehicle. Curbers offer none of the protections the law provides for purchases from a Vehicle Sales Authority licensed dealer. aler.

Refreshed RX350 ups the sportiness factor

...the same interior space as a mid-sized sedan but sits higher for greater outward viability...

’’

Zack Spencer

2014 Lexus RX 350 F-Sport Toyota is known for building high quality cars with fantastic resale value and has grabbed more Canadian Black Book “Best Retained Value” Awards than any other manufacturer. In the Lexus line of cars and SUVs, the best seller by far is the RX 350 mid-sized SUV. Built using parts common to other Lexus and Toyota products, it represents a lot of what Toyota/Lexus is doing right. The engine is powerful but still thrifty enough for most families, the space is generous and the design is elegant. For buyers that are looking for a bit more performance from the RX, the F-Sport package adds visual and emotional punch. Looks Over the last several years, Lexus has taken a more aggressive design approach

room for a family of four with a big back seat and lots of legroom. The materials used are of the highest order and the RX is put together well. The controller for the communications and navigation system is unique in the industry, mimicking a computer mouse. It feels very natural and the driver rarely needs to take their eyes of the road. The array of buttons and their less than logical layout could do with an update. The F-Sport comes which heated and cooled seats but it took me about five minutes to locate the switch in

with its latest introductions. The front grille is more dynamic, designed to mimic a spindle used in a fabric loom. This is a tip of the hat to the origins of the Toyota Company as a textile maker. LED marker lights and a deeper chin spoiler frame the more aggressive grille. The larger 19-inch wheels come in a smoked satin finish and the suspension is tweaked for more performance. Around back, all RX 350 models come with a power rear lift gate. One of the reasons the RX is so popular is the aggressive starting price. The base model, with the same engine as this F-Sport, starts at $46,150 making it a very attractive alternative to buying a spendy German SUV. The F-Sport model is $55,400 but comes almost fully loaded, with only two options available, the Intuitive Parking Assist and Heads up Display, which brings the price to $58,850 Inside The 2014 RX is a mid-cycle refresh of the model that was introduced in 2010. Unfortunately, Lexus didn’t refresh the inside of the cabin at all, keeping the updates to the exterior and driveline. Not to say that the inside is a disappointment, rather that some things could be tweaked. I’ll start with the positives. The cabin has plenty of

the centre armrest. The dial for the tuner is as far away from the driver as it could be and the seating position is very high. Drive At the heart of all RX 350 models is a very versatile 3.5L V6 engine with 270hp. The F-Sport is made sportier by the inclusion of an 8-speed automatic transmission instead of the regular 6-speed unit. By adding two more gears this new model really jumps away from a stop and pulls very well to highway speeds. Two extra gears make a world of difference, helping to bring the

engine to life and improving fuel economy. The suspension has also been modified to include a sport tuned dampers and springs. I could certainly tell this RX is different, in some city conditions, the ride can be very choppy and not what typical Lexus buyers would expect. The upside is that open road driving is much more sure-footed and dynamic. When the RX is thrown off-centre the top heavy nature of the RX shows its head; the centre of gravity feels much higher than some of the other sporty models in this class.

2014 Lexus RX 350 F-Sport.

Verdict The RX350 is the best seller in the Lexus line for good reason. It offers the same interior space as a mid-sized sedan but sits higher for greater outward viability, comes standard with all-wheel drive and has a high resale value. The RX 350 F-Sport takes all

the goodness of the regular RX and makes it a bit more aggressive, especially in the acceleration front. Potential buyers would be well advised to drive both the regular model and this sportier version to see if you can live with the choppy ride, it really is dramatic. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

tives that provide 90 per cent of the bang for 5 per cent of the buck. Here are some of our favorites: 1963 Shelby Cobra/1992 Dodge Viper: Everybody loves a Cobra. Carroll Shelby’s idea of stuffing an American V-8 in a lightweight British sports car was an instant hit. The trouble is, if you didn’t buy one in the early 1980s when they were about $30,000, your chances of acquiring one are pretty slim for much less than a million. So, instead of a Cobra

replica you’ll always have to make excuses for, why not buy its spiritual successor, the Dodge Viper? Early examples of this V-10 powered, raw and uncompromising car can still be had for less than what Cobras were selling for 30 years ago. 1967 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 N.A.R.T.

Classic beauties

Continued from page 36

has an American-powered near doppelganger that costs a fraction of the price. Back in the 1960s, Canadian Frank Reisner dreamed of building Ferrari-like GT cars with American V-8 power. His Intermeccanica Italia roadster hit the mark in terms of Ferrari-like style – the bodies were even built in Italy – but in place of a complex and expensive V-12, most had small-block Ford V-8 power, with some tuned by the famous American race shop Holman and Moody. About 400 Italias were built, and they’re not cheap (RM Auctions sold one in 2007 for $44,000).  They cost a fraction of the Ferrari but have most of the looks and performance, if not the pedigree. 1965 Jaguar XKE coupe/1973 Triumph GT6: The Jaguar XKE is generally accepted as one of the prettiest cars of all time. And its great looks don’t come cheap. The first and most desirable series of the beloved XKE or E-Type now regularly brings more than $100,000. But few people know that fellow British sports car company Triumph made a three-quarter scale near replica of the E-Type, the Triumph GT6 that was also powered by a smooth and throaty straight six (albeit one that was half the size). About 10 grand buys a Triumph GT6 that many will mistake for a Jag. Rob Sass is the vice-president of content for Hagerty Insurance.

McLENNAN Diane Doreen Audrey Aug. 26, 1938 ~ Feb. 23, 2014

Diane McLennan passed away at Surrey Memorial Hospital in the evening on February 23, 2014. She was a loving, compassionate, creative woman and was well known for being young in spirit. In her later years she was best known as “Gaia” by her grandchildren and many other young people. She instilled in them a love of art, west coast culture, and seaside adventures, always encouraging them to try new things and be themselves (and spoiling them a little bit). She spent the last year volunteering with the Mission Hospice Society, where she spent the last year using her exceptional creativity, organization skills and compassionate nature to care for others like she has her whole life. She will be truly missed by many relatives and friends and especially by her children; Michelle (Ray) Schlein and Bradley Bunnett, and her grandchildren; Dieta (Andrew) Carlson and Natasha Schlein. There will be a memorial service on Saturday, March 22 at 2:00 pm at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church 32420 7th Ave., Mission, BC. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Mission Hospice Society, 32180 Hillcrest Ave., Mission, BC V2V 1L2 or donate online at:
