Half of fire response involves medical issues

AUDITIONS FOR ANNE

In 2013, only five per cent of fire service calls related to fires

Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

Of all the incidents that Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service (AFRS) responded to in 2013, nearly half were related to medical issues. AFRS released its annual report to council on March 10, showing that 48 per cent of calls involved health and medical problems. About five per cent of the department’s response were to fires with property loss. Abbotsford’s fire chief Don Beer said the increased response to medical issues and a lower percentage of fires has long been a trend for fire services across the country. He said although only five per cent of calls currently involve fires MAZDA 3

in Abbotsford, it’s never been more than 15 to 20 per cent in the last 20 years. Last year, there were 88 structure fires, of which 50 were homes, 13 were apartments and townhouses and 12 were barns. Other fires included vehicles, grass, power poles and dumpsters. In comparison, there were 2,779 responses to medical incidents – the most common being breathing problems at 634, followed by non-trauma fainting or unconsciousness at 454, and chest pains at 423. The province-wide agency BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) responds to all medical calls, but as fire departments remain under municipal

control, their level of response to emergencies, medical or otherwise, is set out by local governments in fire service bylaws. Though Abbotsford firefighters attend many medical calls, they actually respond to fewer than some neighbouring communities. Provincially, fire service support to the BCAS is determined by categories. Abbotsford uses a modified level B response, meaning firefighters respond to immediate life-threatening injury or illness incidents. In communities including Burnaby and Vancouver, the fire departments support BCAS at a level A, meaning that fire crews attend all the incidents to which ambu-

Farmer disgusted by the garbage along his street Jason ROESSLE Abbotsford News

Many people drive, ride and walk along Abbotsford’s quiet country roads to enjoy the peaceful rural nature. Other people use them as a garbage dump. Chris Croner operates a blueberry farm on Hallert Road, and three months ago decided to volunteer with Adopt A Street. He gets into his pickup truck about once a month and picks up litter from the base of Sumas Mountain to the Abbotsford/ Mission Highway. And he’s disgusted by what he finds. He regularly fills the bed of his truck with the trash he collects. Plastic tarps, insulation, milk cartons and five-gallon hydraulic fluid jugs were just some of his latest finds. “This road is part of the [Trans] Canada Trail,” said Croner, who has run the farm with his partner for the past 30 years. He said people should be proud of their community, and take their trash to the landfill instead of pitching it into rural ditches. Croner also encouraged people to volunteer for something like Adopt A Street. “Be involved with your community. Don’t

Chris Croner displays some of the trash he picks up in his rural area. be afraid,” he said. The City of Abbotsford shelled out $50,000 last year for illegal dumping. It costs taxpayers about $100 an hour for equipment and staff to retrieve and dis-

pose of the trash, according to Jim Gordon, general manager of engineering and regional utilities. The cost rises if it’s hazardous materials, for which the municipality must bring in a contractor. There are a number of problem dumping areas that the city checks monthly, including the Page Road quarry, Watson Road, Bates Road, Peardonville and Echo roads, and Lower Sumas Mountain Road east of Carnarvon Court, he said. The type of trash varies from household garbage near the quarry, to illegal grow-op materials and construction waste at the other hot spots. The City of Abbotsford’s volunteer coordinator, Alanna Carmichael, said the municipality is always looking for program volunteers, including Adopt A Street. The annual Community Clean-Up Week – organized by the city – takes place April 19-25, and Carmichael said it’s a good time to sign up. Volunteers are issued safety vests, litter pickers, bags and gloves. The time commitment is up to the individual. For more information, visit volunteer@ abbotsford.ca or call Carmichael at 604557-7050.

Task force created to provide illusion of positive action

The purpose of the Task Force announced by Bruce Banman and headed by John Smith is: T Cover the posteriors of Abbotsford’s mayor and city councillors Smith, Barkman and McGregor. T Distract citizens and media from the mayor and city councillors Smith, Barkman and MacGregor blowing off a $2.5-million capital grant to build Housing First housing for the

homeless and millions more in funding for operations and programs – all the while crying about the need for senior levels of government to provide funding for homeless initiatives. T Provide the illusion that Abbotsford’s mayor and fellow naysaying city councillors are taking positive action on homelessness in Abbotsford. T Provide an excuse for the City of Abbotsford to do noth-

ing because it is waiting for the task force to report on what action the city needs to take. T Allow the City of Abbotsford to return to chasing the homeless pointlessly from location to location around the city. T E n h a n c e Abbotsford’s reputation for incompetence, hateful and irrational behaviours – particularly in regards to the homeless. Instead of naming a task force why didn’t

the mayor and councillors Smith, Barkman and MacGregor create a committee to advise them on social issues such as homelessness? Oh wait,   a previous mayor and city council already did that. Three elections ago the excuse of the day for Abbotsford politicians was “we cannot do anything until we get an advisory committee made up of the right citizens that can tell us what we need to do.”

That bought mayor and city councillors several years of pointlessly chasing the homeless around the city before they created the Abbotsford Social Development Advisory Committee, whereupon the city policy continued to be chasing the homeless around the city. What happens if the task force advises that council revisit their decision and rezone the ACS property so that

construction can start on housing based on the recovery-focused housing-first approach rather than continuing to use the traditional recycling approach? If it were not for the cost to taxpayers and the cost to the lives of the homeless, this

keystone cops routine would be laughable. But there is nothing funny about the negative consequences on people’s lives, on Abbotsford, that result from the actions of the mayor and his cronies.  James Breckenridge Abbotsford

large-scale operations in the city, seeking to make growing any marijuana in Abbotsford illegal. But banning grows on the ALR requires approval from the Ministry of Agriculture, which is still pending. Canaweed Production Incorporated has applied to Health Canada to establish a growop at 36156 Vye Rd., near Upper Sumas Elementary. The city can hold a business licence application for 90 days if it is in conflict with bylaws that are in preparation. The application will be held while the city waits for direction from the ministry. The Agricultural Land Commission has previously stated that medical marijuana production is a permitted farm use and representatives from the BC Agriculture Council have also said that the legal growing of marijuana should be an option available to farmers. A report from city staff said their recent inquiries with ministry representatives “have indicated that the minister has not rendered a decision on whether or not an approval of the amending bylaw is forthcoming.” Medical marijuana users across the country won a reprieve last month, allowing them to keep growing pot at home after a federal court judge granted a temporary injunction, pending the outcome of a constitutional challenge that is still to be heard. The federal government has announced its plans to appeal the decision.

$250,000 for erosion repairs

The provincial government is providing $250,000 to the City of Abbotsford to help fund erosion repairs on the Fraser River. But that funding is only a portion of the $1.5 million originally requested by council to assist in repairing riverbank erosion on the Fraser, which falls under provincial jurisdiction. After an erosion arc was discovered on the river near Beharrell Road, about 30 metres from the Matsqui dike, city officials raised the alarm that the rapid erosion could compromise the dike during spring flooding. That land is a part of the Metro Vancouver park system, but a dike breach could impact Matsqui Prairie, the railway and the Abbotsford-Mission Highway. “The funding will be used to specifically address erosion along the … dike, which has been a concern of mine since I served on city council,” said Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson, who pushed for the funding. Mayor Bruce Banman said a long-term solution to deal with erosion on the Fraser River must be sought.

Business as usual for local Sears Home Services Company Despite Sears Canada’s recent news about Sears Canada and the home services division, it’s business as usual at the local Sears Carpet Upholstery, Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC Services. “The company continues to carry on business under the Sears brand name, stated owner operators Gary and Lauri Yarrow. Customers have been calling our office concerned that we may no longer be in business after watching the recent news regarding issues some customers are having with ‘other’ Sears Home Services”, stated owner-operators Gary and Lauri Yarrow. After 20 years of providing High Quality Carpet Upholstery, Air Duct Cleaning & HVAC Services for our customers under the SEARS HOME SER-

VICES Brand, we were informed that in March of last year SEARS CANADA INC entered into a deal to sell this branch of their operations to SHS Services Management Inc.  To all of our surprise on December 13th 2013, just before Christmas we were informed that SHS had gone into receivership.  The Yarrows said they want to reassure their carpet and duct-cleaning customers that this has not quality service to our customers’. “Our business is good! We have a great local client base and we don’t want to lose that” says Gary “We were told to just keep going with our services,” Ms. Yarrow said. “We’re still active … I wanted to just clarify that.”

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK IS APRIL 6-12 With the help of volunteers, MCC changes lives around the world As we recognize the millions of volunteers across Canada, we remember that Mennonite Central

CommiƩee was established by a small group of volunteers in 1920 to help those in need. For over 50

years, Canadian volunteers have helped MCC in its relief, development, and peace eīorts around the

world. Thousands of people in BriƟsh Columbia volunteer to support the work

of MCC every year. From sorƟng through goods at any of MCC’s ten thriŌ shops to making school kits for kids around the world, there is no shortage of ways that people choose to give of their Ɵme and resources to support MCC. MCC works in over 60 countries around the world, aīecƟng the lives of over 6.5 million people by responding to disasters, supporƟng local communiƟes through development projects, and promoƟng peace and jusƟce in the face of violence and persecuƟon. Volunteers, both domesƟc and abroad, help MCC respond to basic human needs in countries like Syria, the Philippines, and South Sudan. The annual MCC FesƟval for World Relief raised over $600,000 last year to support MCC’s work around the world, with almost 1,200 volunteers helping to organize and set up the FesƟval, and serve the thousands of people

who aƩended. Every year, MCC sends young adults abroad through its Serving and Learning Together (SALT) program. ParƟcipants engage with local communiƟes through a variety of assignments, from improved farming pracƟces in Lesotho to teaching English in Laos. In a similar way, the InternaƟonal Volunteer Exchange Program (IVEP) brings young adults from abroad to Canada and the U.S. to gain professional skills through volunteer placement. These programs encourage mutual learning and cultural understanding while allowing volunteers to engage in pracƟcal work experience, furthering the reach of MCC to even the

most rural parts of the world. In BriƟsh Columbia, MCC runs a variety of programs aimed at local communiƟes, helping people through such programs as Abuse PrevenƟon, Single Parent Support, and Refugee and Newcomers Assistance. All local programs rely on the assistance of volunteers, allowing MCC to support people groups that might not otherwise receive the assistance they need. With the help of thousands of volunteers, MCC is changing the lives of millions of people around the world. Thank you to all who have volunteered your Ɵme and resources in support of our work!

Good Friday Blues Band performs April 17-18 Shows will be a fundraiser for Abbotsford’s Cyrus Centre

Homeless youth will get support from a group of musicians who want to use their talents to benefit others. The Good Friday Blues Band will hold two worship services at the House of James in Abbotsford on April 17 and 18. “We are so pleased to be back in rehearsals and to know that we’re supporting such a great ministry,” says band member and organizer Angelika Dawson. Ticket sales from each service will benefit Cyrus Centre, an Abbotsford ministry that works with street-entrenched youth. “So many people turned up for the services last year that we raised over $1,000 for Cyrus Centre. That felt pretty good.” The centre provides 24/7 care, 365 days a year, to at-risk youth aged 12-18, ensuring that they have a safe place to go where they will be met with care and compassion. “We exist to ensure that all youth, regardless of gender, race or culture, have a safe place to turn to,” says executive director Les Talvio. “We do not receive any government funding for this work. We are entirely supported by donations, so we are grateful for events like the Good Friday Blues services that support youth at risk.” Now in its third year, the Good Friday Blues services are designed around blues songs and focus on the events of Good Friday. The services include prayers, readings and a “sermon” delivered by actor John Dawson. New this year will be the addition of artwork and an original poem presented by Adam Roper.

Museum will celebrate Mennonite agri heritage Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

The construction of a museum commemorating Abbotsford’s Mennonite agricultural history was given approval by council on Monday. The Menno Place Museum Society is proposing to develop a Mennonite Agricultural Heritage Museum as an agri-tourism destination and farm retail sales facility on Clearbrook Road near Highway 1. A portion of the land will also be used for farming a variety of crops both for educational purposes and for sale. The properties, located in the Agricultural Land Reserve, are not currently being used for agricultural production and the project would bring a portion of the land back into farm use. But because a certain amount of the space must be used for farming due to Agricultural Land Commission regulations and to comply with the city’s zoning bylaw, Coun. Henry Braun raised concerns that the farm use was insufficient to meet the regulations. Though he said he fully supported the intent of the project, he had concerns about whether the accessory farm use, including the museum and other buildings, was too much to meet the standards. Coun. Moe Gill said the educational component is a benefit to agriculture as it will teach the importance of farming. The museum building would provide administrative offices as well as four multi-media theatres, with 20 to 30 seats each, for presentation of historic and current agricultural practices. The proposal states that the site would allow for educational experience for local schools and university students.

Kia taking on the small cars from the big guys

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA – Kia rounds out its attack on the country’s best-selling cars with the launch of the final two models to the Forte lineup. Last year Kia introduced their all-new Forte sedan to compete with such top sellers as the Honda Civic, Mazda3, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra. This week, the 5-door hatchback version called Forte5 and the coupe, called Forte Koup begin arriving in dealerships. The launch of these two vehicles took us from Huntington Beach, California, through the mountains and desert to Borrego Springs and then back through the mountains to San Diego. The terrain varies from massive California highways to very twisty mountain passes and vast desert valleys. Stunning scenery and a recommended drive for any sightseer or driving enthusiast. Looks The Forte5 is the more practical of the two new Kias with a hatchback design that sets it apart from the competition. Many competitors don’t offer a hatch so this is sure to be noticed by people who need extra storage and passenger room. Sold with a new base 2.0L engine or an optional 1.6L turbo engine, there are varied looks depending on which trim is chosen. The non-turbo Forte5 gets a front grille similar to the sedan with a smaller lower intake and a larger grille opening. The Forte5 SX turbo gets the same grille as the Koup, with the opposite

front treatment, a bigger lower opening and a injection engine with a solid 201hp and 195 lb.smaller, more aggressive grille. The great news ft. of torque that comes on at a very low 1750 is that all Forte5 and Koup models come with RPM.

Dart GT could be edgier but delivers value by Alexandra Straub

The Dodge Dart has held its own in a sporty compact segment where competition

is fierce. Perhaps it is because of its value, the various engine choices or that it has some pretty cool features (like available under-the-frontseat-cushion storage) and a fresh style – inside and out – the Dart seems to be a hit. Two years in, Chrysler has

loaded it up with an engine full of gusto, unique styling cues and added a couple of letters on the back and now we have the Dodge Dart GT. What sets it apart from its siblings are a stretcheddown grille and LED headlights. You’ll find the rear clad with the ‘Racetrack’ LED lights that run the full

length of the trunk. Then there’s a set of 18-inch wheels that come standard on this vehicle along with a 2.4L, MultiAir, 4-cylinder Tigershark engine, matched with a 6-speed manual transmission, that brings to the pavement 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque.

Of all the characteristics I like about this trim of Dart, I think its transmission is the weakest link. In previous reviews of other Dart models – like the 1.4L, turbocharged version with 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque – the gear throws are, in my opinion,

too long to really give it that edge and sporty vibe that it needs to compete with vehicles like the VW GTI, Honda Civic Si or even the Ford Focus ST. The gear throws are long and the clutch has little weight to it, taking away the performance aspect of the GT

Noodling on the web one morning I found out that I was selling vehicles illegally. If I was in the business of selling, I need to be licensed as a dealer. Oh well. Everything’s been working out just fine for me. I skated through those recent bad deals. My previous sales were a distant memory – I was eager to start selling more. So, I decided to up my game a bit. I got a low-end truck and a car from an auction and another car from a new parking lot friend. I put ads for all three vehicles on Craigslist. Of course my ads said they were all real gems. You’d think people might see through my ads. “Need to sell fast, so price is flexible. Call with best offer.” And my cell number was the same for all three. Would anybody notice? The first two cheaper vehicles sold quickly. The last one took a bit longer to sell. Of course, it was the one I was most eager to sell. Why, you ask? Well, not that I passed the information along, but the auction provided vehicle history reports for the first two. I had no information on the last. So, I bought ICBC and CarProof vehicle history reports. I wanted to educate myself. To my surprise, there was a statement in both reports that the vehicle was possibly “stolen*.” I knew I had to sell it fast. I mean, I’d paid for it and I knew my new “friend” wouldn’t take it back. Four days later, I got a call from a young

“Apart from being stolen, it was pretty nice!” woman. She asked if the car would fit a family of four. “Definitely!” I practically screamed. I was a wreck during this sale. I just needed to get rid of this car – fast. I told the nice lady the details of the car. Apart from being stolen, it was pretty nice! I told her I was in a hurry to visit my mum in the hospital. She was in a hurry too – her three-year-old was anxious, pulling at her pant legs. She seemed to not want to be there as much as me. Finally, she agreed to buy the car. Phew! I was saved. Whatever happens next, I don’t care. It’s her problem not mine. I quickly changed my phone number (again). Weeks later, I saw her on the news – with kid still at pant legs – talking to a reporter. Apparently, the car was towed away by the police. And yes, she was trying to find me. Had I covered my tracks? I agonized.

*How can a stolen vehicle be sold? Curbers often break the law by bridging a title. Instead of registering a vehicle in their name within 10 days after a purchase, as required, they leave it in the name of the previous owner. This keeps their name out of the chain of title and from being caught with a stolen vehicle or one that would not be able to be registered or insured for another reason.

Dart GT is a strong competitor in its class the Dart more. I really did. So I concocted scenarios in my mind to figure out a way to not be so sad about its lack of panache. I think I found one. Buyers of the GT will like what they get for the value. After all, it has a starting MSRP of $21,995. That’s thousands less than the aforementioned competitors. And some buyers of vehicles who want that extra kick don’t necessarily need all the sports sedan-like

characteristics. They want power but in a comfortable and affordable package. Furthermore, they enjoy added touches like a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, GT specific sport leather seats, a Parkview rear backup camera and more. The interior has a pleasant look to it and it’s very agreeable to drive. On the highway, special attention from designers and engineers was paid to make sure you drive in a quiet cabin. Minimal road noise entered

the GT’s cabin, allowing my passengers and I to enjoy the musical stylings of various bands being listened to on the Alpine premium stereo system with nine

speakers (an additional $1,295 for this sun and sound package.) The sun portion of the package adds a power express open/close sunroof to the mix.

After I switched into this mindset, I found I was able to alleviate my frustrations of what the GT didn’t have, but what it did have. Additionally, a feature that

Abbotsford rugby men on a roll in second half Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News

Graeme McRury of the Abbotsford Rugby Club’s first division men’s side hauls down a Bayside ballcarrier during Saturday’s game at Exhibition Park.

Enhanced depth has pushed the Abbotsford Rugby Football Club’s men’s teams to greater heights this spring. After some struggles during the first half of the season, the club added five first-division athletes to their player pool –  among them 20-year-old tighthead prop Ryan March, who had spent the latter months of 2013 with the Canadian senior men’s national team. Those arrivals created a trickle-down effect, as former first-division players were assigned to the seconds and former seconddivision players joined the thirds. Add it all up, and you get days like last Saturday, when the club’s three men’s sides swept all of their games at Exhibition Park. The first division

men beat Bayside, a team they had lost to in the first half of the season, by a 27-12 score, with Some Mosogau (forwards) and Connor Hunter (backs) earning man of the match honours. The seconds extended their win streak to five games with a 14-0 victory over Bayside, with Tanner Saliken (forwards) and Scott Alexander (backs) getting man of the match nods, and the thirds beat Chilliwack 55-32 in a high-scoring affair. “Right across the board, our teams are doing better in the second half,” noted Harry Toews, the ARFC’s first-year men’s coach. “We’ve had five players come out in the second half that were of first division quality ... and it’s sort of that knockon effect, where you’ve got greater-skilled and more experienced players moving into each of those divisions.”

The club’s secondhalf surge has come too late for the first division squad –  they’re in fourth place in the Okanagan Spring Brewery League 1 with an 8-7 record, 10 points

back of Richmond for the third and final playoff spot. While they’re mathematically alive, it’s highly unlikely they’ll be able to rally past them. The seconds and

thirds, though, are both in post-season position –  Abbotsford’s 10-5 record is good for third place in League 2, and the third team’s 6-1 record is tops in the Mainland Tier B division.

Asked what spectators can expect from Beach Blades, the Abbotsford Skating Club’s annual ice show which runs Saturday at MSA Arena, she offered

a compelling pitch. “The little skaters are fun to watch,” she said. “And your mouth hangs open in awe at what the older skaters can do on two thin blades.”

Most movies don’t have taglines that good. As its title suggests, this year’s show has a beach theme, with music, costumes and backdrop meant to evoke the sights and sounds of the beach. Quiring, for instance, is skating to Surfin’ U.S.A. by the Beach Boys, while wearing a bathing suit-inspired outfit. The show will feature group and solo performances from a wide variety of athletes –  from three-year-olds in the CanSkate program, to the top competitive skaters in the club. Other years, co-directors Stacy Geddes and Tammi Kerr have brought in an elite provincial-level figure skater as a guest performer, but they’re not going that route this time around because they believe there’s more than enough talent in the local club. Geddes described the show as “Disney on Ice, but on a much smaller scale,” and said that participation is a thrill for all of the skaters, no matter the experience level. “During the year, (the competitive skaters) are training on their own as individuals,” she said. “But for this, they come together and do group numbers, which they never get to do outside of this one week. “For the young kids, they feel like they’re in the Olympics. It’s the highlight of their year.” Beach Blades has two Saturday showtimes – 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at MSA Arena. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and kids three and under are free. For more information, visit abbotsfordskatingclub.org.

Basketball players Aieisha Luyken and Jasper Moedt were the big winners at the University of the Fraser Valley athletic awards banquet last Friday. Luyken and Moedt were named the Cascades’ female and male athletes of the year, respectively. Luyken, a fifth-year point guard out of Mission Secondary, was a Canada West second team all-star after tying for the team lead in scoring average (10.8 points per game) and leading in assists (4.4) and minutes (29.5). She helped the UFV women’s hoopsters win the conference silver medal and the national bronze medal, both of which were high water marks for the program. Moedt, a fourthyear centre out of Yale Secondary, also earned a second team Canada West all-star nod after a season which saw him average 14.2 points and 9.1 rebounds. He helped the UFV men’s basketball team to its third straight Canada West Final Four berth, and was the conference’s nominee for the CIS Ken Shields Award, which recognizes the nation’s top studentathlete. Q UFV’s rookie of the year awards went to soccer players Dylan Jordan and Carley Radomski. Jordan started seven games as a freshman on the Cascades’ back line, notching two assists along the way. Injuries thrust Radomski to the forefront with the UFV women’s soccer team, and the midfielder started all 12 games in the regular season, registering two goals and an assist. Q Kree Byrne (men’s soccer) and Nicole Wierks (women’s basketball) were the academic award winners. Midfielder Byrne, a second-year science student, has maintained a 4.06 GPA at UFV, and also collected a goal and five starts on the season. Wierks, a graduating senior who averaged 9.1 points per game on 51.9 per cent shooting from the field, won the female academic

award for the second straight year with a perfect A+ average (4.33 GPA). Q Trevor O’Neill of the men’s soccer team won the outstanding community award, in recognition

of his coaching contributions with the Abbotsford Magnuson Ford Soccer Club. Q The Jen S i m p s o n Memorial Award for outstand-

ing leadership went to rower Stephen Wall, a secondyear kinesiology student from Coquitlam. According to coach Liz Chisholm,

Wall “is quiet and confident, a thinker and a doer” who “doesn’t shrink away from what is asked or expected.” Q The Cascades’ team MVP award winners were as follows.

Women’s soccer: Dayle Jeras Men’s volleyball: Nikolas Vojnovic Women’s volleyball: Krista Hogewoning Men’s golf: Aaron Pauls Women’s golf: Jen

Woods Men’s basketball: Kevon Parchment Women’s basketball: Aieisha Luyken Women’s rowing: Stefanie Schoenberger Men’s rowing: Scott Micona

May 14, 1984 ~ March 24, 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tobias into the presence of his Lord. His life ended suddenly in a tragic car accident, along with two co-workers, on Highway 33 near Sedley, SK on his way home from work. He will be remembered by his wife, Daniela (Fast) and his young daughter, Annabel. As well as, his parents, John and Irina Friesen, siblings Daniela (Ronny with Eric, Katie, Caleb), Markus (Marilyn with Noah, Makayla), Johnny, Joseph (Danae). Tobias Friesen was born in Salzkotten, Germany on May 14, 1984. He immigrated to Canada, as a young boy, with his family and eventually settled in Abbotsford, BC. He met his wife, Daniela Fast, at TREK in the summer of 2010 and they were married on August 26, 2011. He became a proud father to Annabel on February 10, 2013. Last October, he moved his family to White City, SK for his employment as an electrician. Toby enjoyed many activities including travelling, reading, hunting, fishing, camping, working with the youth at King Road MB Church and at TREK, playing games and sports including hockey, snowboarding and rollerblading. Toby gave his life over to Jesus Christ at the young age of 11 and was baptized at age 24 in Thailand. He shared his love for his Saviour with everyone he met. He had a genuine love for people, sharing his big bear hugs with all. Although Toby’s life on this earth was short he lived his life to eventually hear the words “well done good and faithful servant”.
