Critics, cops clash over use of force Video of takedown prompts complaints

Abbotsford News

Abbotsford Police are responding to accusations they used excessive force when dealing with a homeless man with a knife last week, saying they did what was required in a dangerous circumstance. The criticism was levelled Tuesday, following the public release of a video taken by a bystander at the scene of the takedown at the Abbotsford Food Bank on Wednesday afternoon. The video shows the man, Roy Roberts, 57, kneeling on the ground as several police officers aim non-lethal guns at him. Roberts, who is not holding a weapon in the video, is shot with rubber bullets and beanbag rounds when he fails to follow several commands to lie down. Ward Draper of 5 and 2 Ministries – which E R advocates on behalf of homeless citizens – said O M INE ObNynLews.com on social media and in a TV interview that ab police escalated a situation that could have ended sooner. He said too many police officers were sent to the scene, and it was excessive to shoot Roberts, especially when the knife was not in his hand at the time. Draper said police have had multiple previous interactions with Roberts, and he questioned why other resources weren’t called to the scene. “Roy isn’t a stranger to our city on any level. They should have maybe contacted community agencies to tag along … maybe bring out the mental health officer,” Draper said in a Global News interview. He said offering Roberts a French vanilla coffee would have been sufficient to end the situation. “I know Roy better than most people … He’s never been a violent threat. He yells, he screams, but that’s it. You Continued on A4

White Rock officials have asked the minister of transport for a re-routing of trains hauling dangerous goods out of their city and potentially to the Sumas Crossing at Abbotsford. In a critical letter to Minister Lisa Raitt, White Rock officials say hauling dangerous goods by rail through their “densely populated” city is unacceptable. They request steps be taken to re-route such trains 30 kilometres east to a BNSF rail line that runs to and from the U.S. at Sumas. White Rock officials say their small seaside community is too populated through which to transport noxious goods, from crude oil to chlorine, several times a day. A dangerous-goods derailment “would be calamitous – making the Lac Mégantic incident look inconsequential by comparison,” the letter states, referring to the July

environmental and public safety concerns. He said the government and railroad companies should find ways to address railway safety for all communities through more stringent regulations and better equipment, such as using “double-hull” tank cars to provide an extra layer of protection. Lower speeds could also increase safety, but he added there is an economic impact to slowing trains down. “Those are the kind of things that we need to tell our federal government to start looking at.” Sending the missive to Raitt was recommended by White Rock’s new rail-safety task force last month. The idea received unanimous support from council. While the letter specifies a “spur line” in Sumas, it suggests there are other options. “The City of White Rock would like to see all dangerous goods re-routed to the Sumas Crossing, or some other route available to the BNSFR,” the letter states. – with files from Alex Butler

2013 explosion in Quebec that killed 47 people. But Abbotsford Coun. Henry Braun, informed Wednesday by The News of the White Rock letter, said re-routing dangerous goods through his community would just be “shifting a problem to a different jurisdiction.” Braun, former president of railroad contractor PNR RailWorks, said after he was approached with similar concerns by residents, he and a Mission councillor spearheaded a local railway safety review. He said that though Abbotsford has a lower population density than White Rock, the potential impact of an incident would still be measurable on both the population and farmland in the area. He also noted the population of the Fraser Valley is expected to greatly increase in coming years. Although Braun said he is not against transporting dangerous goods – as the economy relies on it – there are significant

just leave him alone and that’s good,” Draper said. Abbotsford Police spokesman Const. Ian MacDonald said police responded as they would in any situation in which a weapon is reported. He said they received “more than one” 911 call, reporting that an “extremely agitated” man was waving a knife and screaming and swearing. “That’s a dangerous situation from a public safety standpoint … (We’re) not going to second-guess people who felt there was a potential for harm and called 911,” he said. Hugh Franklin, a staff mem-

ber at the Abbotsford Food Bank, confirmed that staff called police. He said workers and/or volunteers who observed Roberts’ behaviour did not want to comment publicly. Franklin said the food bank has protocols in place for when a staff member feels unsafe, and this includes locking down the building and calling police. Those procedures were followed last Wednesday. Franklin said the food bank deals with Roberts on a regular basis, and he has previously displayed erratic and belligerent behaviour. MacDonald said that although Roberts might not have had a weapon in his hand

when police arrived, a knife was on the ground and he easily could have reached for it. He said there was no way for officers to know whether the man had another weapon on him or in his backpack that was on the ground. They commanded him to lie down in order to defuse the situation and protect Roberts from injuring himself or others, MacDonald said. Roberts was taken to hospital for treatment of his minor injuries and a mental health assessment. MacDonald said the APD’s mental health officer does not come to the scene of such incidents, but connects

with resources afterwards. He said the officer was called in after the incident with Roberts and has been co-ordinating with other agencies to develop a plan for him. Roberts has been charged with possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and has been in custody since his release from hospital. He is next scheduled to appear in court May 26. While he was in hospital, the city cleaned up the camp that Roberts had occupied for several months on Montvue Avenue across from Abbotsford Community Services. That action also drew criticism.

Whatcom Road gas station robbed A gas station convenience store was robbed early Monday morning in Abbotsford. The robbery took place at about 5 a.m., when a man entered the store at the Esso in the 2100 block of Whatcom Road and smashed a display case. After removing some of the items, the culprit fled from the store and got into a waiting goldcoloured 1990s import sedan, in which a woman was seen in the passenger seat. The 29-year-old store employee then called police. The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 20 to 30 years old, wearing a black hat and a blackand-white bandana over his face. He was also wearing grey pants, brown shoes, and a blue-and-white jacket with the hood pulled up and writing on one arm. The woman is described as Caucasian, 18 to 21 years old, with brown hair.

Andrews said that when the AHL approved the Flames’ farm Centre. “I feel badly for those that did become real fans of our league team’s move from Moline, Ill. to Abbotsford in 2009, the league and of the Abbotsford Heat that the team is relocating, and ob“believed . . . that we had a chance to be successful. “There were a number of factors that made it difficult,” he viously for the employees there,” he said. “There’s a lot of peoanalyzed. “Long before we were there, there were some chal- ple impacted any time a team isn’t able to continue operation.”

QUESTION

WebTalk Police takedown

OF THE WEEK Police used non-lethal guns to take down a man reported to have a knife. Was that excessive force?

I look at this video and I can’t believe what I am seeing. I spotted so many mistakes I can’t even mention them all. Katarina Delorme Once you ignore a police officer, that is suspicious to them. For all they knew he could have had a gun in his belt. He was shot with rubber bullets. If we were in America they would have killed him, so stop whining. Geoffrey Halliday

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Do you approve of the city ending the Heat hockey team’s contract for $5.5 million?

The APD does a good job in this town – not big on the seatbelt blitzes – but kudos on the drug and gang issues. As for the homeless ... they do not have the mindset to deal with humanity in this regard. Ed Galick

Support from me regarding the use of non-lethal force in spite of the seriousness of a knife which is and could be lethal. Rxx Hiebert

Use of force debate misses the real issue Andrew

Holota

On Point When it comes to police use of force, the armchair experts come out in full force. Such is the case in the aftermath of last Wednesday’s incident involving the Abbotsford Police Department and a report of a distraught homeless man waving a knife and yelling outside the Abbotsford Food Bank. Employees inside the facility made the call, and then followed protocol by locking the building, and waiting for police. Clearly, they had reason for concern. The man was in the parking lot, and would not follow repeated police commands to lie down. Ultimately, officers shot him several times with non-lethal rounds – rubber bullets and beanbags. The man was arrested and taken to hospital for examination of minor injuries, and to undergo a mental health assessment. At the scene, on the pavement beside the

man’s backpack, was a large knife. Roy Roberts, 57, has been charged with possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose and has been in custody since his release from hospital. A potentially dangerous situation effectively defused by the cops, with no serious injuries. All good, right? Not according to a local homeless advocate, and some viewers of a citizen’s YouTube video taken during part of the takedown. Based on that, and a hefty application of after-the-partial-facts analysis, the police used excessive force, allege the critics. The man didn’t have a knife in his hands when he was taken down. Ipso facto, he was not a threat, and the excessive force allegation is proven, case closed – save for condemnation and righteous indignation. There isn’t video of the entire episode from start to finish. That means we don’t know what the people at the food bank saw. But their report was of a man waving a knife.

I’m not a cop, but I’ll make a wild guess that 911 call automatically sets police response to a high level of caution and protocol of action. Upon arrival, officers are potentially dealing with an armed individual. They act accordingly, which is to contain the situation, take control, and in the process, protect all concerned, including – as much as circumstances allow – the suspect. In this case, there clearly was no compliance with police orders. Call in the couch critics at this point, who handily freeze-frame the action. They call in an instantly available mental health worker. They have a friendly chat with the fellow. They bring him a French vanilla coffee (that was a real suggestion). They determine the knife was just a little one, that he never held anyway. And besides, everybody knows this guy is really harmless. No threat here, folks. And if there really was a big knife, then it was in his backpack where officers found it. (Wouldn’t that still make it a big knife?) This scenario had so much potential to go

Call in the couch critics at this point, who handily freeze-frame the action.

real bad, real fast. The guy grabs his knife and runs off. He encounters a citizen who is in the wrong place at the wrong time, and who gets fatally stabbed. Whose fault? The police, of course. Why didn’t they do something? The man picks up the knife and lunges at officers. Now he’s a deadly threat, and real bullets are used. Police kill a confused homeless man. Public outrage follows. I’ll suggest what is really outrageous here, and that is the dismal failure of our social support system to deal with the mentally ill – particularly those on the street. They don’t fall through the cracks – they live in them. And when their afflictions put them in conflict with the law, they encounter the police, who are expected to be mind-readers, mental health professionals and social workers – in often extremely tense situations. The subjects are arrested, maybe charged, and then are rotated by the system back onto the street with little or no long-term treatment. The real injustice to Roy Roberts is what is going to happen next – or more accurately, what won’t.

Bring lacrosse into Abbotsford Centre instead of hockey I’d like to suggest a plausible use for our arena now that the recent fiasco has been put to rest (except for the outstanding debt). Instead of having an American business (NHL) in the arena and run by an American promotions company (Global Spectrum) let’s do something Canadian for a change. By the way I’m still choked at paying full price for half a show (Cirque Du Soleil). Apparently the reason for the departure is that all the

other teams are in the east which costs money to travel to, which we paid for. Well, let’s shop local. Ever hear of the NLL? Lacrosse is a Canadian game that’s just as rough, if not rougher, than hockey. There is also a large local following which means the arena would have more paying fans than the Heat ever did, and the travel is minimal. There are lots of teams in the Lower Mainland as well.

Except for what we pay to Global, the cash would stay home. Another plus for this game is that it wouldn’t cost parents of wanna-be players an arm and a leg and another mortgage. It’s enough fun to maybe even get the kids off the video games for a while. Besides, when was the last time you heard the Hockey Night in Canada theme? Dan Garrett, Abbotsford

Is it xenophobia or just sheer ignorance and rudeness? For the fourth time in a year I have, as an immigrant Scotsman to the Fraser Valley, experienced nasty, disparaging and downright rude remarks from white, middleclass British Columbians. What kind of sheer ignorance do the people of the Lower Mainland perpetuate to feel that such behaviour is acceptable, warranted or justified? What kind of outlandish nonsense does this community hold as true of the Scottish nation, its culture, heritage and most important to their own Canadian history, its legacy? From accusations of being somehow ethnically violent

as a race, sideways glances, inappropriate parodies of speech, accent and “Groundskeeper Willie” whiskeydrinking stereotyping, I have never in my 45 years on this good green Earth met such a bunch of ignorant and downright rude morons. I came to this province believing it to be a sane, westernized, democratic, diplomatic capitalist community. I expected its people to have been educated in the philosophies of these highly held pillars of our western society, and at least to some small degree be appreciative of the considerable contribution the Scottish nation has made to

them, and to the foundation of their great state. Instead, I am find myself among socially graceless knuckle-draggers who think the world was forged this way and the Scottish nation just happened to be where your red-headed, incoherent, drunkard of a great-greatoat-eating-grandfather was born. No wonder China is kicking the west’s backside economically –the American continent seems to have forgotten everything the Scots taught them! John Campbell Abbotsford

Making a case for B.C. oil refinery This is the second of two columns addressing what I see as the greatest threat to the B.C. environment in our lifetime. The Alberta oil industry’s Northern Gateway plan is to export bitumen to Asia via tankers from the B.C. coast. Under no circumstances should we allow that to happen. A bitumen spill at sea could destroy our coastline, together with the fish and wildlife that depend on it, for hundreds of years. My first column discussed the light oil spill by the Exxon Valdez and the terrible toll it took on the Alaskan habitat and fishery. It also gave proof that a bitumen spill would be far worse. A bitumen spill would be almost completely unrecoverable because it would sink and stay on the bottom of the seabed. The solution that is best for Canada is to

build a refinery in Kitimat. I am promoting and backing this solution. It will convert the bitumen to very light fuels that would float and evaporate if ever spilled. There are other enormous benefits: – There will be a major reduction in greenhouse gases. We will use new cutting-edge Canadian technology in our refinery. It will be so clean that in combination with oilsands extraction there will be less CO2 than in the huge conventional oilfields and refineries of Iraq and Nigeria. In other words, the Kitimat refinery will neutralize the extra greenhouse gases generated in Canada’s oilsands. This refinery will be built in Asia if not in Kitimat, and if so, it will emit double the CO2 of our new design. This is the reason that Andrew Weaver of the BC Green Party is in favour of a Canadian refinery.

- An Asian refinery will also generate 100 train cars a day of very dirty coke (much fouler than B.C. coal) which

ever created in B.C. with approximately 3,000 direct jobs. These will be highly paid permanent jobs, available for

Canadian oil companies are not interested in building a new major refinery. They are focused on extraction,

The Canadian and provincial governments, local regional districts and municipalities, and many First Nations, will share in billions of new tax dollars each year. DAVID BLACK will be subsequently burnt in the atmosphere to create power. The Kitimat refinery will not result in the production of any coke. As we all live on one planet, it is far better for the global environment to build this refinery in Canada. – Construction of the refinery will create 6,000 jobs in B.C. for five years. Operations at the refinery will result in more permanent jobs than any project has

the life of the refinery which should be in excess of 50 years. In addition, there will be thousands of other jobs created in spinoff local petrochemical companies and in indirect employment throughout the province. – The Canadian and provincial governments, local regional districts and municipalities, and many First Nations, will share in billions of new tax dollars each year. Unfortunately, our

which is more profitable than refining. One of them challenged me to spearhead the refinery myself, so I am doing that. We have a solid business plan, and as a consequence, Chinese banks and other institutions are prepared to lend us most of the funds required to build the greenest and most efficient refinery in the world. We are currently moving ahead with engineering design and environmental work.

Looking good! www.abbynews.com Have a better look online!

We will also build a safe pipeline from Alberta to the refinery, with the active participation of First Nations. Modern pipelines can be built and operated safely. Leak data is available for everyone to see on Canadian and U.S. government websites and it proves recently constructed pipelines are not leaking. Furthermore, some of the best pipelining companies in the world are based in Canada. In addition, we will build a fleet of new tankers, powered by LNG rather than Bunker C oil, to transport the refined products to Asia. This way we know the tankers will be state-ofthe-art and as safe as possible. The fleet will be owned by a company based in B.C., so it cannot shirk its legal liability if there ever is a spill at sea. Let me be up front about my biases. I am

for creating thousands of good permanent jobs in B.C. I am for creating billions of new tax dollars for government coffers. I am for reducing the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. I am for building an oil pipeline that will never leak. I am for building a modern tanker fleet that carries only refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. I am against shipping bitumen in tankers. If you agree that we should not put bitumen in tankers, please contact your local MP and say so. The Canadian government makes a decision on Northern Gateway next month. David Black Editor’s note: The first instalment of this opinion piece appeared in the April 23 issue of the Abbotsford News.

Jailed for attempted abduction Marini sentenced for library incident Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Notice of Public Hearing

to consider an amendment to Abbotsford Zoning Bylaw, 1996

Abbotsford Council will hold a Public Hearing at 7:00 pm on April 28, 2014, in the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford, B.C., under the provisions of the Local Government Act to consider the following bylaw. At the Public Hearing, all persons who believe their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw will be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the bylaw that is the subject of the hearing. The following is a synopsis of the bylaw amending the Zoning Bylaw of the City of Abbotsford, and is not deemed to be an interpretation. A copy of the bylaw and relevant background documentation may be inspected in the Planning Services Division (2nd Floor), Abbotsford City Hall, 32315 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford, B.C., on April 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 25 and 28, 2014 between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. If you have any questions, please contact Planning Services Staff at 604-864-5510.

A former missionary/pastor from Abbotsford has been sentenced to seven months in prison for attempting to abduct a 12-year-old boy by offering to buy him some new shoes. Patrick Marini, 71, was also given three years’ probation on Tuesday in Abbotsford provincial court. He was convicted in January of attempting to entice a child away from his parent. The incident occurred on June 25, 2013 at Clearbrook Library on George Ferguson Way. Marini approached a boy who was reading some books and told the boy that his shoes looked worn. Marini asked the boy to come with him to

buy new ones. The boy testified that Marini made the request about three times, but walked away when the boy insisted his shoes were fine. A woman who witnessed the interaction reported it to library staff, who identified Marini from his library card and then called police. Marini was previously charged in March 2012 with sexual offences against a 15-year-old Abbotsford boy and pleaded guilty two months later to sexual interference, receiving a conditional sentence (house arrest). An online profile formerly described Marini as a missionary/pastor who has ministered in Canada, the U.S., India, Africa and Europe. He previously lived in Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Stolen bulldog found in Abby

What will you miss today because you won’t hear it?

A French bulldog stolen last week in Vancouver has been located in Abbotsford by regional animal control staff. Vancouver Police Department said Wednesday morning that after six days the dog, named Chloe, has been reunited with her owner. Police say that last Thursday around 6:45 p.m., a woman went into the Fall Tattooing Shop located at 644 Seymour St. and made off with the 10-monthold pup. The woman was captured on surveillance video running from the store. Witnesses reported seeing her flee in a car that was waiting in front of the shop. Police stated that following the alleged dognapping, social media lit up with stories about the theft and police received Submitted numerous calls idenChloe the stolen bulldog was tifying potential susfound in Abbotsford. pects.

Police said that Tuesday afternoon, Chloe was found roaming a residential neighbourhood in Abbotsford by Fraser Valley Regional District Animal Control. On Wednesday, Chloe was reunited with her owner and police are working to retrace Chloe’s steps following her escape from captors.

Truckers to compete in June Competition to be held in Abbotsford

Dozens of B.C. drivers will put pen to paper, inspect their rigs with a fine-tooth comb and then jump behind the wheel to demonstrate their skills at manoeuvering their trucks, all in the name of competition. The drivers will all be contestants in the 2014 BC Professional Truck Driving Championships in Abbotsford at Tradex on June 21. The competition is designed to showcase the skills and professionalism that set the in-

dustry’s best drivers apart from their peers. It has three separate components – a written exam; a vehicle inspection, during which drivers must find a series of planted defects; and a driving competition, which simulates the everyday skills of manoeuvering, cornering and judging distance on an obstacle course. There are five separate classes of competition, based on the configuration of the trucks: straight truck, single-axle trac-

tor and trailer, single-axle tractor and tandem trailer, tandem tractor and tandem trailer, and B-train. To be eligible for the competition, drivers must have been actively employed and accident-free for the 12-month period prior to the championships. A fee of $225 covers the driver’s entry, and pays for the driver’s breakfast, lunch and a single ticket to the awards banquet being held that eve-

ning at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel in Surrey. The hosts of the event, the BC Trucking Association and SafetyDriven, have planned for “family entertainment” and concession stands to be part of the event. The organizers are also looking for volunteers to help run the event. To register or for more information, go to www.bctrucking. com or email Glenda Dressler at championshipcommittee@ shaw.ca.

Run locally, give globally Contributed

+ Strata Management

Like many of the nearly 5,000 annual participants in Abbotsford’s Run for Water event, Erin Parkes first joined because she loved the idea of being part of an exciting community run. But after that first experience, she was inspired to take another step and join the movement in a deeper way. “The first time I chose to participate because I just loved running in a local event. Now, I’m not just running – I’m making an effort to be intentional with my time and donations,” says Parkes. “Run for Water is an integral event that brings the local community together to support an intentional cause, bringing and sustaining communities in Ethiopia with water.” Parkes, a partner in Abbotsford based family business Valley Pulp & Sawdust, has embraced the vision of Run for Water board chair Ken Baerg.

At Strata’s Choice we give you our full attention at fair and extremely competitive rates! Just ask our clients!

“Extensive Knowledge of the Strata Property Act.”

TESTIMONIALS + Bud Jackson – View Pointe Properties “We are delighted to say that we have found Colleen and her team to have discovered the fine balance between professional excellence and personal care and attention. In a few words, we would say that Colleen and her highly qualified team have been consistently personable, co-operative, prompt, concise, trustworthy and helpful in every instance.”

+ Dan Burroughs – Walnut Ridge “Having your wealth of knowledge of the Strata Act to guide us in desicion-making during the year has greatly helped the Strata Council and we are sincerly grateful to your whole team.”

+ Margaret Neufeld – Brookhollow Estates “Colleen Floris is in her tenth year as our property manager. We are exceedingly grateful to realize that our initial hiring of her was to be our good fortune over these many years – we will continue to renew her contract. Colleen has 18 plus years of experience in this industry, and is exceedingly knowledgeable with respect to the Strata Property Act and all other rules & regulations that apply to this business. She is professional, prompt with responses and, along with her staff, is a pleasure to work with.”

+ Lenora Schroeder – Evergreen Village “I am very confident in Colleen’s abilities, expertise and experience and I am glad she is our agent!”

Helly, who participated in the Run for Water ultra-marathon this past year, adds, “It also motivates me to train for six months of the year so I can run the 56 km and then get up the next day to run the 5K event with my family!” Parkes adds, “We talk about Run for Water all the time – it has become a passion of ours. So it’s bringing change to our family and those around us because we always invite other to join us in participating in some way by running or donating.” This year, the Envision Financial Run for Water event aims to raise over $350,000 in donations to fund a clean water project in the southern Ethiopian area of Gezesso. The project will bring clean water and a healthy, hopeful future to over 17,000 residents in that area. Find out more about the 2014 Run for Water event and the project, and now to register at www. runforwater.ca.

“From the start, our dream has been to combine a high level run that appeals to everyone from families to elite runners, with raising awareness and funds for international clean water projects,” says Baerg. “Erin’s story is a great example of how Run for Water provides a venue to make a real difference in the world while enjoying the excitement and deep satisfaction of this grass-roots event.” Dan Helly, an Abbotsford resident and dedicated runner, echoes similar motivations to Parkes. “It’s great to get our whole family involved in a community event that is making a difference by bringing clean water to another community in need,” says Helly. “It’s also a great opportunity to educate ourselves and our kids about how blessed we are and to share that with others in need by donating funds as well as participating.”

From near death to dedicated volunteer

Abbotsford Homeowners Want to Know The Value of Their Home, But Are Afraid to Ask! Abbotsford – A hassle-free service allows homeowners to receive up to date real estate market information speciÀc to their home without having to meet with a real estate agent. Some homeowners are reluctant to meet with a realtor as they may only be in the early stages of planning a move or may not yet know if they will move. “Should we sell or stay? How much equity do we actually have?” Often these questions cannot be answered without knowing the current value of your home. Determining the value of your home is based largely on comparing your home to similar homes that have recently sold. This comparative approach should consider several factors – features of each home, location, neighbourhood, length of time on the market, etc. However, access to this type of information is generally re-

served for the real estate agents and their clients. This free service provides each homeowner with a Real Estate Market Update speciÀc to their property. This update includes detailed sales information of similar homes that have recently sold within the homeowner’s area, as well as the current listings. This data includes a photograph of each home, asking prices and selling prices, the number of days on the market, price reductions and a complete description of each home. To have a free Market Update sent to you, specially tailored for your home, call this 24 hour free recorded message at 1-800-251-4944, enter extension #4811. This hassle free, no obligation service is provided by Rod Poole of Landmark Realty Corp. You may also call Rod’s ofÀce directly at 604-309-6068.

Abbotsford man visits with ARH patients twice a week

Jason ROESSLE Abbotsford News

Most people dread going to the hospital, even if it’s to visit a loved one. Dan Fraser is different. He loves walking through the doors of Abbotsford Regional Hospital (ARH), and does so twice a week for two hours at a time as a volunteer. It was a life-changing event that brought him to the bedsides of so many patients. In 2006, Fraser, then 41, was a construction superintendent, responsible for helping build commercial buildings such as schools. The former football and hockey player was relaxing on a long weekend when suddenly his hand became numb and it was difficult to speak. He went to the hospital and doctors discovered he was suffering from a brain stem bleed. While exhibiting no previous symptoms, he was afflicted with a weak cluster of blood vessels in that area. Fraser’s health deteriorated quickly, to the point where many of his functions were impaired. He needed a tracheotomy to help him breathe and had to resort to blinking to communicate. A high-risk surgery was required – with only a 15 per cent success rate. Initially, Fraser could only move his left hand and foot. It took almost a month of rehabilitation to be able to become mobile again, but even then it was a battle. He progressed from

Fraser was released in December, after three months at Royal Columbian Hospital. And he wanted to go back. “I told myself when I was lying in bed … I would do the right thing,” said Fraser. But it took him years to summon the courage to put his plan into action. The lifelong Abbotsford resident decided that instead of spending all his time watching television, he would do something

more productive, which led him to signing up to volunteer on Tuesdays and Wednesday to visit with patients at ARH. “No matter what we both have on the outside, when I’m visiting, it’s just two people talking,” he said. “I usually just walk in and say, ‘Hi, I’m Dan and I’m a volunteer with the hospital’ and we go from there.” He spends as little as a few minutes with some patients, to a couple hours, depending on their level of engagement. Fraser’s unique injury and long recovery period give him deep

empathy for the patients he visits, and he can tell the talks are appreciated. “After you visit with someone and they thank you, they’re not just saying it. They really mean it.” Through it all, Fraser says he’s at peace. He was fortunate to have had longterm disability benefits through his work, which enables him to own a condo in town. But he can’t drive or ride a bicycle so he takes transit everywhere. “Everything has become more simple. I have learned patience.”

From the Great Wall to the Forbidden City 42 travellers recently returned from their nine-day, all-inclusive trip to China hosted by the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce. Among the travellers were MLA Simon Gibson and his wife, chamber president Mike Welte and his wife, executive director of the Mission and District Chamber of Commerce, Michelle Favero, as well as members of the public, who were joined in China by eight other chamber members from Rocky Mountain House, Alberta and Thompson, Manitoba. Together, they visited four of China’s leading cities – Beijing, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai – to see the natural beauty and culture of each location. For executive director of the Abbotsford chamber, Allan Asaph, the experience brought him a better understanding of China. “The purpose of the trip was to introduce our members to the people, history and culture of ‘old’ China and the modern reality of ‘new’ China,” said Asaph. “In addition, we looked to establish business contacts and develop relationships in China.” The itinerary was fastpaced, with travellers often covering numerous sites in a single day, beginning with a tour of the stunning

landscapes of Summer Palace, featuring Kunming Lake, Longevity Hill and the Seventeen Arch Bridge. On the second day, the group stopped at the fresh water pearl factory before heading to the site of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and Tiananmen Square, followed by a tour of the Palace Museum and the oldest part of Beijing, where they dined with a local family. Afterwards, they met with practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine at the Tong Ren

Tang pharmacy founded in 1669, and then visited the Temple of the Harvest, established in 1420 by Emperor YongLe of the Ming Dynasty. On day three, they flew to Shanghai and toured by bus through the local farming area to the city of Suzhou, known as the “Venice of the east.” Before boarding boats and coasting along the canals and waterways of the old town, the group explored the historical grounds of Tiger Hill, and the “leaning

tower” of China. The fourth day began with a visit to a silk factory, followed by a tour of the centuries old Lingering Garden, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and then the National Embroidery Institute to see silk embroidery, which is considered an important local craft spanning back over 1,000 years. “Our tour host had arranged a special invitation for our group to visit the Singapore/Suzhou Industrial Park and meet with

a senior administrator,” said Asaph. “This joint Singapore-China project was started in 1994 and encompasses over 80 kilometres of planned industrial, commercial and residential development with a population of 1.2 million.” The following day the group visited a tea plantation, the Lingyin Temple and Monastery featuring a camphor-wood carved Buddha nearly 64 feet high. They then enjoyed a relaxing boat cruise and

dinner by the Huangpu River in the historic Bund section of the city, followed by a river tour of the captivating Pudong District. The last full day of the trip started with a return trip on the Shanghai to Pudong Airport Mag-Lev Train. “This $1.2-billion electric train makes a one-way 30.5-km trip in just over seven minutes, reaching a top speed of 431 kilometres per hour,” said Asaph. “When the two trains pass each other it is impossible to take a picture of the other train because of the speed.” The group then toured an Oriental rug factory before settling down for a Mongolian barbecue-style lunch. The afternoon was spent enjoying the sights at the Yu Garden, home of Shanghai’s old town bazaar. The travellers were entertained by the ERA show, a worldclass performance that includes acrobats, contortionists, dancers and musicians. “I think everyone enjoyed the people we met, the sights, the food and the companionship of our fellow travellers,” said Asaph. “We are looking to offer this trip again next year and possibly add another to Hong Kong and Thailand.”

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

We want to hear your BOLD idea for Abbotsford Since the launch of our Abbotsford 2020 project we have been impressed by the response from the community to share their BOLD ideas. The on-line submissions have been well thought out and some are very creative and original.

Mike Welte PRESIDENT

The three goals of this project are:

Joshua Bach

VICE PRESIDENT

Brandon Kelley TREASURER

• To stimulate a creative dialogue from the residents as to what the future state of our city should look like; • To identify major themes, issues and innovative ideas; and

Kenda Allen DIRECTOR

John MacDonald

• To create a platform for discussion and action leading into this year’s review

of the Official Community Plan and fall Municipal Election. On March 20th the Chamber held its first BOLD Forum for the Abbotsford 2020 project. A group of Chamber Members met at the Matsqui Central Auditorium for what became a very engaging and interactive dialogue about what we would like our community to look like by the year 2020. I was encouraged to see that the members in attendance really care about our community and have great suggestions for improvements in the effort of making Abbotsford the best place to live, work, play and learn.

From the Bold ideas submitted so far some of the major themes centre on improvements to transportation, increased community participation and new ideas for community activities. We are hoping to hear input from as much of the community as possible over the next two months. Please take an opportunity to visit www.abbotsford2020.com and submit your best BOLD idea for Abbotsford’s future. Our next BOLD forum is open for the non-profit community and will be held on April 29th at 5:00pm in the Cascade Community Church, 35190 Delair Rd.

Chamber announces new sales training program As an entrepreneur or executive you already know that sales is the life blood of every business; when sales are good, life is good but, when sales are down then your stress level soars in direct relationship to your cash flow going down. Well here is the good news, selling and all things related to it are skills and skills can be learned. In fact the better you learn then the more streamlined and profitable your business will become. I learned the necessary skills, profited from them and I know you can to. From developing a winning attitude and a personal plan for life, to networking skills, personal branding and beginner, intermediate and advanced selling and customer service skills to mastering social media, the programs now available to you through

the Chamber will give you a new edge in business, in selling, and in life. In addition to great program content, and select pricing for Chamber members we have developed a schedule that will make these programs accessible to all. Four programs start in early May and will be running in a two

month cycle; there will be six cycles per year and new programs will be added each year for three years. Overall a solid, pragmatic, and long term program and one you as a member of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce have priority access to. Be on the lookout for program dates, breakfast speaker mini programs and some great added value promotions all

coming your way.

Mainland, visiting 15 cities and speaking at 20 schools. The message on this year’s journey again is to encourage students, organizations and seniors to find ways to

improve our intercultural communication. During C4D Week the team asks people to try to find ways of being more inclusive in our sport teams, neighbourhoods and work

places. C4D started in 2011 to conquer the growing cultural divide, and progress is being made. As founder, I would like to especially thank executive direc-

tor Terry Stobbart and Anne-Marie Sjoden for their efforts. Stobbart said, “Our foundation is taking on new challenges in reaching out to our communities through

the school districts and we are hoping to enter the workplace this year talking about diversity and creating the very dialogue that this foundation wishes to foster all over.”

Abbotsford Right to Life, which has been active in the community since 1980, has worked hard to raise the funds to operate a pregnancy care centre in Abbotsford. They rely on the generosity of local residents and fundraisers like their upcoming Walk for Life on June 7 for funding. Elizabeth Sutcliffe, coordinator of client services at Hope for Women Pregnancy Services, said the site has helped 25 women since moving to the new space in late January. Along with referrals to community resources and providing clothing and baby essentials, Hope for Women also offers post-abortion counselling to women. “There are women in our community who are struggling with the consequences of previous abortions, and we want to let them know that they are not alone,” Sutcliffe said. Jared White, general manager of Abbotsford Right to Life and acting director of Hope for Women, said there is little that will not be done at the centre to help a woman throughout her pregnancy and beyond. “I think our biggest goal is to empower women. We provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where a woman can explore all her options,” he said. “We are not a medical facility and we do not provide or refer for abortions but we are here to love and support all our clients regardless of what choice they make.” The grand opening runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 3.

Heat gear up for Griffins Billins relishes first-round clash vs. former team Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Heat’s first-round playoff match-up with the Grand Rapids Griffins is guaranteed to be a stiff test, and nobody understands that better than Chad Billins. Last season, Billins was a key cog for the Griffins during their march to the Calder Cup, emblematic of the American Hockey League championship.

please contact us to rsvp:

The high-scoring defenceman departed the Detroit Red Wings organization over the summer, lured by a two-way NHL/AHL contract from the Calgary Flames. And as of this weekend – when the Heat host the first two games of a best-of-five series against the Griffins (Friday and Saturday, 7 p.m., Abbotsford Centre) – he’ll be aiming to send his old Grand Rapids buddies to an early summer vacation.

“It’ll be a fun series,” Billins predicted with a grin following Tuesday’s practice. “Of all the teams we could be matched up with, to play the team you won with last year is pretty crazy. It’s exciting. “But we’ve got to get ready to beat them.” The Griffins have become one of the AHL’s most admired organizations in recent years – in addition to their Calder Cup success in 2013, they’re also renowned for cranking out quality players for the NHL parent Red Wings. Billins said that Griffins head coach Jeff Blashill (the AHL’s coach of the year for 2013-14) and his staff deserve a great deal of credit, and noted that Red Wings’ much-lauded organizational culture trickles down to Grand Rapids. “It starts in Detroit with the big guys who

come to work every day –  leaders you can look up to,” he said. “Guys always talk about (Niklas) Kronwall, (Pavel) Datsyuk and (Henrik) Zetterberg and how hard they work, and it transfers right down through the organization.” Billins and Heat head coach Troy Ward both expect it to be a fastpaced series, with both teams proficient at putting the puck in the net –  Grand Rapids was eighth in the AHL with 238 goals during the regular season, while the Heat (237) were right behind them in ninth. The goalie match-up figures to be a beauty – Griffins netminder Petr Mrazek was an AHL second team all-star this season, and Abby’s Joni Ortio made the all-rookie team.

DAN KINVIG Abbotsford News

Liz Carter has been honoured on many occasions for her outstanding volunteer contributions, and her latest recognition is an upcoming induction in the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame.

It’s unlikely that many of Abbotsford’s current tennis, gymnastics and judo athletes would recognize Liz Carter’s name. But they, like thousands of athletes over the past four decades, have been impacted by Carter’s remarkable sports legacy in this city. Her contributions will be feted on Saturday, as she – along with former Canadian Football League lineman Rob Lazeo –  will be inducted into the Abbotsford Sports Hall of Fame. Carter’s induction is in the community sports builder category. “I was shocked,” the 78-year-old Carter said with a chuckle, reflecting on the honour. “There wasn’t a lot of variety in what recreation was going on here when I arrived, and Continued on A32

FV Regional Science Fair a Success

Abbotsford Students Excel at BC Skills Competitions

An amazing variety of science-based presentations were on display at the Fraser Valley Regional Science Fair held at UFV’s Abbotsford campus in early April. In total, 210 students from 24 schools in Abbotsford, Langley, Chilliwack, Maple Ridge and Agassiz presented 62 projects. Over 80 awards were handed out; six students with the top projects were awarded a trip to the Canada-Wide Science Fair being held in May in Windsor, Ontario. They include (pictured, L to R): Charanpreet Mahal and Gurmeen Banipal from WJ Mouat Secondary, and Miranda Koetsch from Abbotsford Traditional Secondary. In addition to the Abbotsford School District, key sponsors for the annual Science Fair are: the University of the Fraser Valley, Science Fair Foundation-BC, and the Youth Science Foundation of Canada.

It was an invasion of skilled trades and technical expertise at the annual Skills BC Competitions recently held at Tradex. More than 400 students from schools and post-secondary institutions around the province participated in over 50 separate skills competitions. Abbotsford students once again posted very strong results. A total of eight medals were won by secondary students from Abbotsford, and another two in junior skills categories. The five gold medalists from Abbotsford School District (in 2-D and 3-D animation, and welding) will move on to the National Skills Canada competitions in Toronto in June. Congratulations to all the participants. Pictured: WJ Mouat Secondary’s Alvin Bergen who won silver in Carpentry.

ASIA North Poplar’s ‘Cereal’ Art Show

District Releases Engagement Results

A unique Cereal Art Show is now on display at the Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts (ASIA) North Poplar, featuring interpretations of popular cereal boxes by grade 4 artists. Under the guidance of art teacher Katarina Vlasic, students created the pictures on canvas with acrylic paint, using various tools and techniques. Some major cereal makers were contacted about the show, and General Mills wrote back, stating how appreciative they were of the students’ letters and paintings. Also, parents were challenged to complete an artist’s hunt by completing a questionnaire based on the art. The show remains on display during school hours until May 16th in the school’s Art Lane Hallway.

The results of a major public consultation by Abbotsford School District with parents, employees and community leaders are now available. Last summer, the school district asked parents, employees and community leaders to share their thoughts about what they felt the district was doing well, where it could improve, and what skills students need for a successful future. Over 2,600 people provided responses to help the district get a sense of shared values and priorities within its schools. Participants highlighted a number of positive features of the school district. Chief among them were: quality of teachers and staff, good communication between school and home, the strong focus on reading,and access to computers and technology. Top skills that participants felt young people needed for successful futures included communication, accountability and personal responsibility, and problem-solving. Results and corresponding comments for each of our 46 schools can be accessed at: www.sd34.bc.ca/board/consultations.

for some reason, I just thought there should be more. And it blossomed from there.” Carter, who grew up in Liverpool, England, ended up in Abbotsford by accident. During her mid-20s, she crossed the Atlantic to visit her brother, who was living in Toronto. She and a friend extended the trip to B.C. because they wanted to see the West Coast,

and she met her future husband Ralph in Abbotsford. Carter, a nurse, worked at MSA Hospital, and her local sport involvement began in 1970 after she took tennis lessons through the Matsqui Abbotsford Recreation Commission. The lessons were made possible through a grant, which covered the cost of tennis pros to travel out from Vancouver, and when the grant

expired, the pros suggested Carter helm the program. She did that, and more. Carter became a regular at Matsqui council meetings and lobbied for a new tennis court to be built next to MSA Arena. She soon realized that one court wouldn’t be enough, and Mayor Douglas Taylor suggested she do some fundraising. A few months later, she came back with $4,000 which went

toward the creation of the four tennis courts next to MSA Arena. Carter also got involved in teaching gymnastics through the rec commission, and when the municipality decided in 1977 to reorganize its programs into nonprofit clubs, she spearheaded the creation of Twisters Gymnastics. Twisters has since grown to become one of Canada’s top clubs, sending three athletes on to the Olympics. Carter also took a hands-on role in fundraising and development for the club’s building at Exhibition Park, which was completed in 1988. “We all got to go in and help paint – we had to put on four coats to make it look decent,” she said with a smile. “It was funny, me up on that scaffold –  I’d never been up that high in my life!” Later, when her son Paul got involved with the fledgling Abbotsford Judo Club, Carter came alongside to help them through the process of incorporation. She’s also been involved in countless committees over the years, including the 1995 Western Canada Summer Games, and was a founding member of the Valley Concert Society in 1982. “She was one of the most outstanding volunteers that I worked with in my 30 years in the City of Abbotsford,” said Betty Johnston, the longtime manager of recreation services. “You always wanted Liz on a committee because she had such a wealth of knowledge, and she was such a hard worker.” Q Visit abbysportshalloffame.ca for more information on the local sports shrine.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Question of the week:

New Golf family offers quality at the right price The new seventh generation VW the Golf and GTI and will come in at roughly the same price as the Golf arrives later this spring with last R, right around $40,000 but a 2015 model designation. fully loaded. I have already had a chance to drive three examples of the new Inside edition in Europe so I can offer The upside to having a slightly you a sneak peek at what this bigger platform is interior space very popular VW has going for it and the cabin of the latest Golf This new Golf before it arrives here. does feel bigger, especially sideThe all-new car might look like to-side. The centre console is family is set to the previous Golf but it is built on wider and the dash is fitted with take on some very a platform that is shared across all-new switches and dials. Once established players the VW group and represents again, the feel and look is almost in the compact a massive investment for the Audi quality. Having a chance to German manufacturer. drive the base car all the way up segment. This new platform, called MQB, to the Golf R showed just how Zack Spencer enables the engineers to build all good the base car is. The only kinds of new products, be they difference is the sportier seats bigger, smaller, wider or taller. What went into and splashier trim on the more expensive cars, the design of the Golf represents a big step but the overall design is the same from car to forward for Volkswagen as the latest model is car and all exemplify the simple, yet elegant 100kg lighter than the outgoing car but it is approach VW takes with all its interiors. bigger, stiffer and safer than before. Drive Looks Gone is the old 2.5-litre. 5-cylinder, replaced It could be argued that the new Golf looks too by an all-new 1.8-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder much like the older model but interacting with base engine. This engine too produces 170 but this new product quickly displays a level of is more efficient, responsive and features state refinement and finish that might be found in an of the art technology.

the S3. A smart shopper might want to wait for the R over the S. Verdict This new Golf family is set to take on some very established players in the compact segment. With a hatchback design, this car has always been a more practical design than sedans like the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. With superb road manners, advanced engines and German engineering, the starting price looks like a winner. A big reason for this is the Golf is assembled in Mexico and these cars come into Canada without duty, (Thanks NAFTA) so VW added more content and kept the price low. The good news for diesel lovers is that the TDI engine will be available right out of the gate and now represents about 50 percent of Golf sales. This engine too has been modified to make it as fuel efficient as possible. All told, the Golf is more polished car than much of the competition and offers a trim level and price for all types of buyers, from basic to flat-out performance.

zas and left it to the import manufacturers to dazzle here. Nissan did not disappoint with the unveiling of a classy looking crossover in the shape of the all-wheel drive 2015 Nissan Murano. The mid-size model first showed up in 2002 and this new model marks the birth of the third-generation. The Nissan-named V-Motion nose and boomerang-shaped taillights ensure it makes an impression on the observer, coming and going, and distinguishes itself from its rivals. Inside, up to five passengers can expect more of a luxury ride than they might have enjoyed in the outgoing version – heated and cooled front seats will impress those upfront. The trend in this segment

to include huge sunroofs continues here. Under the hood, Nissan stays with the trusty 3.5-litre six-cylinder powerplant matched to a continuously variable transmission. Expect to see the Murano in the showrooms at the tail end of the year. Before moving on, the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept should be mentioned as it offers a clue to what the new Maxima might resemble. And boy, is it a looker despite the horrible orange colour of the show car! It too features a panoramic roof stretching almost from the windshield to the rear window. A production model version is expected later in the year, which suggests the L.A. show might benefit from that timetable. Any new Toyota Camry is an instant hit, especially in

North America where it’s been the best selling car for 12 years. Despite that, the Japanese manufacturer launched an all-new 2015 model, just three years after introducing a redesign. It incorporates design touches now appearing in sibling models, including a deeper grille that more resembles an upmarket Lexus. Interior materials are upgraded and a large central display matches the design trend of its competitors. Two trims are added; a sporty XSE with some luxury touches and a Hybrid SE. Toyota sticks with its 2.5-litre, four-cylinder, and 3.5-litre, six-cylinder engines plus its Hybrid Synergy Drive. Hyundai would like to put a serious dent in the Toyota continued on page 17

OUR LEGENDARY

TIRE EVENT IS ON NOW! PLUS MAIL IN REBATES up to $100

I surprised my family with a trip to Hawaii. They didn’t have a clue how I paid for it. But they thought I was the best dad in the world. While we were away, I bought a car on eBay. It had over 350,000 km on it. No one will want to buy this piece of junk, I thought. Unless. I could just lower the mileage on it a little bit. And it won’t hurt anybody, right? One problem – I had no idea how to change an odometer*. But as it turns out, it’s much easier than I’d expected. With an odometer tool, I changed the reading to 164,500 km. Still a lot, but less than half the real clicks. My ad: “Minivan – old but in great condition! Only 164,500kms - it sat in my garage for the last 5 years. Must sell. If you’re looking for an older, but reliable and safe vehicle, call my cell and we’ll negotiate.” Looking back, I realized I’d knocked almost 200,000 km off the vehicle. But I shined it up and put some newer used tires on it so they wouldn’t give away its true condition. Will this get me in trouble? I wondered. I wasn’t doing anything wrong, really – this just gives me a chance to make some more money on the vehicle. I got a phone call from a young single mom who could only afford an older vehicle. We decided to meet at her son’s school. As I was showing her the car, I noticed the carpet, the door handles and the pedals kind of gave away its true condition. Hopefully she’s too naïve to notice, I thought.

Forty minutes later, our exchange was complete. I probably made an extra $2,000 because of the odometer! If I’d only done this to all the other cars I sold! Suddenly, my mind began processing the implications. That minivan was pretty much at the end of its life. That young mom is expecting the vehicle to last her for a few more years. At best, I see it lasting one more. Parts will start failing, calling for expensive repairs. I’m certain she doesn’t have the money for that. All I’m hoping is that it doesn’t break down on the highway. Maybe there was a reason I never did it before. Maybe, just maybe, I had a conscience up until now.

*Odometer: The law allows an odometer to be replaced when broken, but the repair must be recorded and the true mileage needs to be disclosed. CarProof and ICBC vehicle history reports can reveal more about how far a vehicle has really traveled. Even AirCare, where available, can help. And Walt is wrong; altering an odometer is a crime.

Camry success story with its own mid-size sedan – the redesigned Sonata. It’s likely the introduction of a sharp-looking Sonata in 2011 helped prompt Toyota into taking a serious look at upping the ante in the Camry. Other competitors have also risen to the challenge. Now the seventh-generation, newly styled, sharper-looking 2015 Sonata raises the bar again with improved ride and handling plus

It is the iconic brand’s first foray into the small SUV segment. Its funky looks and fuel efficiency should make it

Three loved and loathed vehicles

by Rob Sass

Some cars, such as the 196367 Corvette Sting Ray and Jaguar E-Type, are almost universally admired, while others are passionately loved by some and loathed by others. Here are five of the most polarizing: 1. 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti: The Avanti was a Hail Mary play to save the ailing Studebaker Corporation with a stunning European-style GT car. Ardent Avanti fans point to its timeless styling, which was supervised by the great Raymond Loewy, and the fact that the car remained in production in one form or another for five decades. Non-fans find the grille-less front end and porthole-like headlights to be a non-starter. A recent uptick in prices may indicate that Avanti lovers will have the last laugh on this one. 2. 1965-69 Chevrolet Corvair: The first-generation Corvair, introduced in 1959, was a pleasing and clean design. But the second-generation was drop-dead gorgeous. No less an authority than David E. Davis, Jr., writing for Car and Driver, called it one of the most beautiful cars America had produced during the post-war era. But many bow-tie fans — used to fins and lots of chrome or the long hood, short rear deck look of the Camaro and Chevelle — found nothing to like about the Corvair. I tend to agree with the fans here. It’s a beautiful little car. 3. 1955-75 Citroën DS: In its native France, the DS can do no wrong. The letters “D-S” in French sound remarkably like the French word for “goddess.” Then the French also think that Jerry Lewis is a god. To most Americans, the sci-fi style of the DS just comes off as whale-like and weird.

RYKERS Henry March 1, 1950 ~ April 15, 2014

It is with heart and soul we announce the passing of a very loved man. Henry was born in Eindhoven, Holland. At the age of 7 his family immigrated and made their home in Mission, BC. After graduating in 1969 Henry worked for a brief period of time at Cominco mines in Trail. He then moved back to Mission and worked for the District of Mission. This was followed by a period of time in private construction. In 1986 Henry moved to Princeton with his family and began a fulfilling career with the Town and Community of Princeton. His love and dedication to family and community lives on in the hearts of all who knew him. Henry was predeceased by his father Peter, in 1983 and his mother Mary, in 2010. Henry is survived by his wife April, his son Matthew, daughter Lisa and granddaughter Jessica, daughter Laura and grandsons Brady, Taylor, Jack and Sailor, brother Ron (Jodie) and niece Amanda, nephew Ryan, and many extended family members in Holland, Australia, Mission, Maple Ridge and Salmon Arm. A son, a husband, a father, a brother, an uncle, a cousin, a boss, but most of all a friend to all. His love, laughter, joking nature and “stories” to this day have left a smile and a bewildered look on many. It is at the request of Henry that no public service be held but he sincerely wishes that you take time and set aside a day and enjoy the “Moment”, with those who are your family and friends - listen to your favourite tunes, enjoy a great meal, perhaps catch the big one or just go fishing, laugh long and loud, hug lots. In lieu of flowers donations many be made to the charity of your choosing. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting: www.hansonsfuneral.ca

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Shirley Wilbur (nee Taylor) of Deroche, BC. Shirley will be missed by her family and friends especially those who live in Deroche and were so much a part of her life for the past 30 years. Shirley was predeceased by her father James Edmond Taylor and her mother Victoria (Pearl) and her brothers Paul Tretheway Taylor, James R. (Bus) Taylor and Jack Wellington Taylor and her niece Peggy. Shirley is survived by her nephews and nieces Lawrence Paul, Tret, Clark, Paul Francis, Teresa, Cecelia, Wayne, Danny, Paddy, Jimmy, Kathy and Jenny. A Memorial Service and Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, May 3 at the North Fraser Community Church, 43745 Lougheed Hwy, Lake Errock. Family, friends and neighbours are invited.

McINROY, Kenneth Nelson It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kenneth Nelson McInroy on April 8, 2014 at the age of 82 years. Ken is survived by wife Edith, son Greg (Juanita), daughter Cynthia (Dave) and grandchildren Brendan, Lauren, Sean, and Shaeline. Most of Ken’s working career was spent as a millwright in the sawmilling business. He loved to build things, including houses in Mission and on Pender Island, as well as furniture and numerous other projects. His true passion was fishing, and he spent many hours on the Vedder and Chilliwack rivers. He also enjoyed baking, and was famous for his bread, buns, and wonderful lemon meringue pie. The family would like to thank the staff at Greystone Manor in Maple Ridge where Ken and Edith lived, and specifically the staff at Hawthorne Care Centre in Port Coquitlam where Ken received exceptional and compassionate care during his final months. In keeping with Ken’s wishes there will be a small familyonly memorial at a later date. Memorial contributions can be made to the Heart of Hawthorne Foundation.

ABBOTSFORD’S ACTIVE ADULTS A local monthly guide to events, resources and services for active adults

May 2014

It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing The Suburban Swing dance club is welcoming to new members of all ages to its regular Sunday night practices.

An all-ages swing dance club in Abbotsford wants you to come out and have fun. Suburban Swing has come from humble beginnings. Founder Jason Warner put together the first events in 1999 while a criminology student at the University of the Fraser Valley, where the group practised in the cafeteria. Eventually, the club was invited to the Abbotsford Social Activity Association (ASAA) hall, where they’ve been for 13 years. The hall is a community dancing mecca, with ballroom, square, and line dancing meets on other nights. In this simple square building tucked away in a corner of central Abbotsford, more than 100 people practised their swingouts, turns, and Charlestons. Nearly everyone was in sneakers or flats, and a few women were wearing the

short flowing skirts characteristic of an earlier era. The jazzy beats of the 1920s to ‘50s regularly fill the venue. Warner said it has recently become so popular that many people drive more than an hour to get to the Sunday night practices. “When you walk in, you’re going to feel very welcome. People ask you to dance. Right away you get included with the whole group, no matter what your age is or status,” said Warner. The club has seen its average participant numbers grow 25 per cent over last year. A record 300 people came out on Dec. 29, 2013. About 40 per cent of dancers are men. And while the event is all ages, the average age is 20. There also isn’t much else to do on a Sunday night, added Warner. The wellrespected club is very diverse, with

people from all backgrounds, abilities, and ages mixed together. Warner works as a correctional programs officer at Matsqui Institution. It’s not as strange a mix as it might seem, he said. He pulls his correctional background into dancing, and vice versa. “My passion is working with people … I like public speaking. I really like facilitating and helping people change their lives. So I think that’s partly what I do here (at Suburban Swing); a crossover of my correctional experience and my social experience.” In addition to the Sunday nights at ASAA hall, Warner also teaches swing dance at W. J. Mouat secondary in Abbotsford, and G.W. Graham secondary in Chilliwack. He dreams of the club growing large enough to have

its own venue capable of holding 300400 people. For more information visit suburbanswing.com.

I don’t want to be a burden… But I need your help (Part 1) As people age and their need for care increases, there is one statement that is echoed from the depths of every soul, “I don’t want to be a Sharon Simpson burden.” This is a common sentiment that comes from the very center of a person’s being. It’s our heart-cry to be valued for who we are without being judged as “less than” when we require assistance. Having once been an independent, self-sustaining individual, it is extremely difficult for any of us to move into a place of dependence. And yet, this is what is frequently required as people age. For some it’s a rapid change (stroke) and for others it’s a slow and consistent decline in their health. I had a visit with an elderly couple who have recently (finally) been able to live together in the same residential care facility. His body isn’t working and she is completely blind. It has been two years since I first met this couple. At that time, he could still walk and help her find her way around. Since then, they’ve been on the roller coaster of declining health and finding appropriate care support. They have been married for almost 70 years. For a long while, they were separated and they needed help from others just to be together for a visit. They have a constant and changing need for physical, financial,

emotional and spiritual support. “This isn’t what we planned,” he told me. I could only imagine what they had planned; to live out their days together on a beautiful porch watching the sun rise and set, sipping iced tea. They would be enjoying the fellowship of their kids, grandkids and great grandkids until their final day here on Earth – which would be at the same moment so that neither would have to go it alone, not even for one second. The reality is, however, like thousands of other elders in our province they are completely relying on the advocacy and care of others. Dependence.

It’s one of our fears. We strive to be independent and yet, dependence is intertwined throughout our lives. What is a good marriage if it is not mutual dependence? We need each other and the journey to mutual trust is rewarding, but never simple or easy. We may feel independent in our employment, but even the self-employed farmer is dependent on the weather, the livestock and the markets. And then, for those of us who walk in the way of faith, there is the very real journey of dependence on God – for insight, strength, direction, courage and companionship. There are seasons

We bring our hear t to your home

of dependence on God that are effortless and other times when we wonder if God is trustworthy or even present. In some ways over the years we’ve grown to be comfortable with a certain degree of dependence on others. The challenge is when this degree of dependence increases in our elder years and we require a higher level of care. Does receiving care automatically mean that you are a “burden” to those who help you manage your life at this stage? Interestingly enough, the Bible talks about burdens that can be shared, burdens that can be lifted, burdens that

can be laid down. It talks about burdens that have been carried long enough, burdens that are too heavy to bear, burdens of guilt and burdens of shame. There are burdens of unbearable religious requirements and burdens of a ministry heart. What the Bible doesn’t talk about is how people ARE the burden. No, the Bible talks about people who are BURDENED and need their load lightened. Jesus called all of those who carry a heavy burden to come to him, for his yoke is easy and his burden is light. He provides relief for the heavy soul (Matthew 11:30). And so, we open our hearts and minds to the unnatural idea that our needs can be burdensome and exhausting, that our hearts can be burdened and heavy. But our spirits are not the burden – they are a joy – both to the Creator and to those who surround us in compassionate love and care.   I invite you to join me in a series of articles that will explore the spiritual and practical ways that you can receive care with dignity and reduce the fear that you will one day “be a burden” to those you love. Continued next edition of Living 55+ on May 30th. Sharon Simpson is the Director of Communications and Marketing at Menno Place, a senior’s campus-of-care located in Abbotsford.

5 foods for the over 50 crowd Men and women must alter their diets as they age. Portion sizes that young adults might have been able to get away must shrink when those same men and women enter their 30s. And as thirty-somethings head into their 40s, what’s on the plate requires more careful con-

sideration than it might have a decade ago. The same goes for men and women over 50, who must take steps to reduce their risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. One of the easiest ways to do just that is to eat healthy foods. The following are five flavorful and healthy foods

Sudoku

The benefits of swimming In the 1985 Ron Howard movie “Cocoon,” a group of elderly adults discovers that a nearby swimming pool has the power to imbue them with new strength, enhanced energy and a more youthful sense of well-being. While the cause of their new lease on life turns out to be from another planet, it doesn’t take alien technology to reap the benefits of your neighbourhood pool. Even without the aid of mysterious other worldly cocoons, regular swimming can offer anyone, especially older adults, a wide range of health benefits – including feeling and looking younger. Swimming offers something no other aerobic exercise does: the ability to work your body without harsh impact to your skeletal system. When the human body is submerged in water, it automatically becomes lighter. When immersed to the waist, your body bears just 50 per cent of its weight. Dunk yourself to the chest and that number reduces to around 25 to 35 per cent. With water all the way to the neck, you only have to bear 10 per cent of

your own weight. The other 90 per cent is handled by the pool. This means that the pool provides an ideal place to work stiff muscles and sore joints, especially if you’re overweight or suffer from arthritis. To improve your flexibility beyond the natural gains you’ll make by swimming, you might also want to finish your pool workout with a series of gentle stretches. The support of the water should help you maintain positions involving tricky balance, such as a quadriceps stretch, for longer periods of time. What’s more, studies have shown that aerobic exercises like swimming can also keep your endothelium in good shape. What’s your endothelium, you might wonder? It’s the thin layer of cells that lines your arteries, and it tends to lose flexibility as you age. In one study of people in their 60s who participated in aerobic exercise, endothelium function was found to be equal to those 30 to 40 years younger. The theory is that aerobic exercise causes arteries to expand and contract, keeping them fit.

Here’s How It Works: To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. Answer is on page B7.

Things to consider before inviting Why not give the BALL a CALL? an aging relative to move in Carole As many seniors age, their ability to live independently is compromised. An older adult may suffer from a medical condition that makes it difficult or impossible for him or her to drive an automobile or manage day-to-day life independently. In such instances, many younger relatives opt to invite an aging parent or grandparent into their homes, a decision that men and women should not take lightly. Asking an aging relative to move into your home is often a selfless decision rooted in the affection you feel for that person. But there are certain things to consider about your home as well as your finances before inviting an aging relative to move in. Space in the home When your household is taking on a new member, you will obviously need to find some space for that person. But if you’re currently at full capacity, then you will need to determine if the space you have is truly capable of handling an additional member of the household. Seniors often value their privacy, so sharing a room is not an ideal option nor one that your relative is likely to

embrace. If you determine you’ll need to remodel or add a new suite to your home, it’s important to know that such projects can be very expensive,

Human food dangerous to pets Many pet parents do their best to ensure optimal health for their companion animals. Veterinary visits, exercise and diet play an integral role in pet health. Pet owners tend to be very selective when choosing commercial pet foods, but sometimes they’re less discerning when they offer scraps of their own food to pets. It can be hard to resist the pleading eyes of a pet looking for a handout from the dinner table. While it is generally fine to offer a tidbit here and there, even small amounts of certain foods can cause illness or even death, and pet owners are encouraged to familiarize themselves with foods that may be hazardous to pets. Some foods people eat can be toxic or even lethal to pets. Avocado, for example, contains persin, which can cause vomiting and diarrhea in dogs, according to the Gateway Animal Hospital. Birds and rodents are also sensitive to avocado poisoning.

Grapes and raisins are other seemingly healthy foods that can be harmful to pets. The toxin inside of these fruits is unknown, but grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure. Cyanide is present in the seeds/pits of plums, pears and peaches, making these fruits potentially hazardous as well. The ASPCA lists coffee, caffeinated products and chocolate as dangerous for pets as well. These items contain substances called methylxanthines that, when ingested by companion animals, can cause vomiting, panting, hyperactivity, tremors, and seizures. Dark chocolate is more dangerous than milk chocolate. Baking chocolate is the most toxic kind of chocolate to dogs. Foods and products artificially sweetened by xylitol will cause insulin release in many species, and this can lead to liver failure. Keep pets away from chewing gum, candy and toothpaste. Common herbs like onions, chives and garlic can

cause gastrointestinal irritation and may lead to red blood cell damage. Cats are more susceptible than dogs to these foods, but each species can be affected negatively. Dog owners have frequently offered animal bones as a treat. However, these bones may harbour bacteria that can cause gastrointestinal illnesses. Furthermore, bones can splinter while they are being chewed, potentially lodging in the esophagus or intestines of the pet. The following are some additional human foods and beverages that should not be given to pets: ■ alcoholic beverages ■ apple seeds ■ hops ■ macadamia nuts ■ moldy foods ■ mushrooms ■ potato leaves and stems ■ salt ■ tea ■ tomato leaves and stems ■ yeast dough ■ walnuts

Things to consider as retirement approaches Though many people are delaying retirement, the day will still come when they leave their jobs behind and retire. Retirement can be a difficult adjustment that takes some getting used to, but it can also prove an exciting time, especially for those who planned ahead to ensure their retirement was a time to be cherished and not feared. Whether retirement is right around the corner or still a decade or so away, men and women should consider several factors to make sure their retirement years are an enjoyable time that allows them to live life to the fullest. ■ Income: Just because you’re no longer working doesn’t mean you won’t have income. Government benefits, retirement ac-

counts and perhaps even some light consulting work are just a few ways retirees can earn an income. Though your retirement income will likely pale in comparison to your income as an adult working full-time, estimate what that income will be so you can get at least an idea of how much will be coming in each month. ■ Monthly expenses: Once you have an idea of what’s coming in, estimate how much will be going out each month. Certain costs associated with working, such as the cost of commuting and maintaining a professional wardrobe, can be removed from the ledger. But other expenses, including utilities, car payments and possibly even a mortgage payment, will still need to be made. Once you have an idea of your

projected income and your expenses during retirement, you can get to work on a prospective budget to show you what you will need to live on during retirement. ■ Employment: Many people now look at retirement as the end of one career and the beginning of another. As retirement draws closer, men and women might want to consider turning an interest or passion into a second career. Such a move might make retirement more exciting while removing some of the fear of finding enough things to pass the time that many people have with regard to retirement. ■ Relocation: Where to spend your retirement years is another thing to consider before the big day arrives. Do you, like many retirees, prefer to stay in your own home?
