Man fires gun inside apartment Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

When police were able to get into the suite where a 23-year-old distraught man believed to be on drugs had barricaded himself after firing shots on Tuesday, they found several guns, as well as bullet holes in the walls and ceiling. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said one of the rounds had gone into a neighbouring suite that was occupied by two women. Despite the recipe for tragedy, nobody was injured in the incident. “It’s remarkable,” MacDonald said after the man’s arrest. Police were called to the apartment suite in the 33200 block of Bourquin Crescent East just after 11:30 a.m. MacDonald said two family members who were in the suite with the man reported that Continued on A3

Six fatalities in Abbotsford and Mission accidents Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Families and friends are mourning the loss of six individuals who perished in a series of tragedies in Abbotsford and Mission over the weekend. Four of the losses were due to vehicle crashes, including two on Saturday on Highway 1 in Abbotsford. The first took place around noon, when a truck rolled over just east of the Sumas exit

Robert McDonald of RCMP Traffic Services said a commercial cube-style truck was travelling in the slow lane and then moved into the fast lane to allow oncoming traffic to merge. The driver then noticed that a 1997 GMC Yukon was swerving and then flipped onto its roof. The 44-year-old Maple Ridge woman driving the Yukon was airlifted to hospital, where she died from her injuries the following day.

Her two passengers were taken to hospital and released. The second fatality occurred just before 6 p.m. the same day on Highway 1, when a motorcyclist went off the road near Clearbrook Road. The 55-year-old rider was travelling west on a 2014 Harley-Davidson when he apparently experienced a medical emergency. He went through the median and down a grassy

been saying.

Abbotsford News

A black bear spotted strolling through backyards in the area of Woodbine Crescent on Friday afternoon has been euthanized. Conservation officer Sgt. Steve Jacobi said the bruin had been relocated last year after entering into local neighbourhoods. He said they had received many calls through the last few weeks about the bear again entering people’s yards. It was also spotted near a gas station and a convenience store. “He was relocated last year … He was doing basically the same thing (this year) and we kind of gave him one chance to smarten up.” Jacobi said the bear’s behaviour did not change.”He’s lost all fear of people. He has clearly stepped outside the boundaries of it being safe at all for people. He was running through backyards, neighbourhoods – he

I am a very satisfied customer of Mainland Hearing. About 6 years ago, I purchased a second pair of hearing aids elsewhere… but they did not work properly. I tried Mainland Hearing and was fitted with much better hearing aids. Each time that I return, I am greeted by the most welcoming receptionist. I was given a thorough assessment by Kris Goos, who took time to listen and explain various aspects of my hearing. Living with hearing loss is complicated and ongoing as we age. Many friends and family do not understand the challenges, so I find it very empowering and helpful to have people treat me with such respect and consideration. – Barb Stirskey Read more at mainland hearing.com

Not even any fear of us (conservation officers), which is really unusual,” Jacobi said. He said there would be no way to safely relocate the bear. “It’s unfortunate that we had to put him down, but in the end, it is public safety.” The bear had ended up in the backyard

then jumped up on the roof of a shed and ate the chicken. She tried banging pots and pans together to try to scare the bear aware, but it was unfazed by the noise. Jacobi said conservation officers had to tranquilize the bear on site and it was then removed and put down.

A brief sojourn into the forgotten past Mark

Rushton On the

Other Hand Standing in a somewhat crowded room last Wednesday I was approached by two women, one of whom exclaimed: Mark Rushton, you haven’t changed a bit. My first thought was: geeezzz, you mean I looked this old back in high school? The scene was a reunion marking the (reluctantly admitted) 50th year since I and 68 others graduated from Qualicum Beach High School. Since the district that fed QBHS is/was perhaps one of the longest and narrowest of any in the province, most of us rarely met outside of school. We were for the most part, except during classes, more the equivalent of ships passing in the night. Because our homes were widely separated, I tended to hang out with kids older or younger who lived nearby.

However, glancing at the few yearbooks on display, and a couple of class pictures in the reunion yearbook I did begin to recognize and vaguely remember some faces. I was surprised to be instantly recognized by a few who were already in the reception hall, only later to discover that a column of mine from a few months ago, with my relatively current photo, was stuck on the wall along with other memorabilia. I should also mention, particularly in reference to the “haven’t changed a bit” that in all the class pictures, and in the reunion group photo, I tower head and shoulders above most. Hard to forget the tallest, skinniest kid in class, I guess, and those characteristics haven’t changed despite the passing of half a century. While I like to think the ravages of time have been kind to me, there were many others in that room last week who, like fine wine, have aged remarkably well. One slim and very attractive woman came up to me and, as an introductory comment, said, “I read your bio (in the reunion booklet) and it sounds like you’ve had an interesting career.”

In an effort to not sound like Forrest Gump, I had submitted only basic information, avoiding reference to myriad experiences such as growing dahlias, pulling 7.5 Gs in the back seat of a U.S. Navy F4 Phantom, flying with the Snowbirds, making my first parachute jump on the same day man first stepped on the moon, shoveling horse poop every day, or

adventure of mine more than pale by comparison. Or former classmates who among many other things became sea captains, school district administrators, nurses, educators and geologists. The class of ’64, it seems, did rather well for itself. Regrettably, a dozen of us never made it this far, and a glass was raised in their honour. Sitting with a wag over dinner, he commented following the toast that at our ages, pretty well every year from now on there will be at least one fewer of us. Kind of makes the prospect of a 60th reunion rather bleak. Thus the day after returning from the reunion I hooked a boat to a truck and my son and two grandkids spent the weekend fishing in the Coquihalla highlands. Nothing like kids and contemplation over a campfire to remind that the past is little more than curiosity; that the future is in the hands of coming generations; and that somewhere along the way some of the contributions we made will perhaps lead to a better world. markrushton@abbynews.com 34375 Gladys Ave., Abbotsford, B.C.

Get on with it

Another week has gone by with no contract resolution in sight. Being an  “octogenarian high school drop-out,” I am coming to a bit of a slow boil. The negotiations for a new educational contract have been at a stalemate far too long.What are these  “highly educated” negotiators doing about problem-solving? The approach seems to be  “there is only one side to the story and it’s mine.” The first question they should ask themselves is: Do we have a problem?  Can we work out a solution? If the answer is yes, get on with it! If no, find individuals who can. The government has

its hands tied because of funds available. The teachers should accept a settlement similar to what some of the other public service unions have settled for. Based on this type of settlement, teachers’ dollar increase will be higher because the percentage is based on a higher salary to start with. Let the students and teachers get on with education and school activites. What message are we sending to our young people? Conflict solves problems?As I heard so often in my younger days, when the going gets tough, the tough get going.  Just get on with it! Eric Myrholm Abbotsford

Cartoon was biased

Your cartoon in the May 29 edition is an extreme example of bias. Whatever happened to objectivity in the press? This education conflict is not caused by just the teachers. Neither is the conflict only about teacher wages, though in your reporting that seems to be the only one you are willing to discuss. No mention of stripped contract or the government unwilling to let teachers even negotiate classroom size and composition. I guess your political view will continue to ignore those things. And yes, I was a teacher (now retired). Allen Stanton Abbotsford

A wonderful act

I just want to thank the person who found my purse and left it at Shell gas station so that I could find it. Whoever you are, thanks from the bottom of my heart for what you did. You did not leave a name so I could not thank you in person, but I hope you read the paper and know that you did a wonderful thing. Thanks again. Millie Lylyk Abbotsford

InBrief GROW-OP

An Abbotsford man who was sentenced in April for having a grow-op on his property had a limited role in the operation, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled. Gerry Therrien was given an 18-month conditional sentence (house arrest), after he pleaded guilty to production of a controlled substance. The judge said Therrien’s only role appeared to be allowing someone else to use his property for the marijuana grow operation. More online at abbynews.com

Abbotsford Police are investigating two fast food restaurant robberies they are believe are related. The first took place at 3:35 a.m. on Wednesday, May 28, when two men went to a McDonald’s restaurant in the 2100 block of Whatcom Road. One man went inside while the second kept watch outside. The suspect – in his 20s, over six feet tall and with a medium build – demanded cash from the manager, who was struck several times. On Friday, May 30 at 4:25 a.m., two men entered a McDonald’s in the 32900 block of South Fraser Way. They demanded cash from a 36-year-old manager and fled. The manager was treated at the scene for minor injuries. The suspects are in their 20s, one Caucasian and one possibly South Asian.

Local teams finished strong at the B.C. high school boys rugby championships, highlighted by a solid fifth-place result from the Robert Bateman Timberwolves. Bateman blew out the Earl Marriott Mariners, their longtime Fraser Valley rivals from South Surrey, 32-6 in the fifth/ sixth placing game at Abbotsford’s Exhibition Park on Saturday afternoon, matching their highest finish at the provincial AAA tourney. “We were decimated by injuries,” said T-Wolves coach Dave Chambers, whose team had beaten crosstown rival Yale 29-10 to get to the fifth-place game. “But guys stepped up. It was a great culmination to the season. They played the way we’d been coaching –  they played to their abilities and their understanding of the game.” Bateman got tries from Kolby Steen (2), Austen Zacher, Slayter Tonneson and Noah Jensen vs. the Mariners, while Gavin Rowell accounted for nine points on kicks. Kurtis Kirschner was named to the President’s 15 alltournament team. In other AAA action, the Yale Lions locked up seventh place with a blowout win of their own –  they crushed Carson Graham of North Vancouver 40-22 behind tries from Noah Bain (2), President’s 15 selection Travis Murray, Surge Francis, Chris Combs and Josh Long. In the AA draw, the Rick Hansen Hurricanes wrapped up the tourney with a second straight win, beating L.V. Rogers of Nelson 20-14 in the 13th/14th placing game. Twin brothers Alex and Brandon Ho and Devin DaCosta scored tries, while Vishal Toor notched a convert and a penalty kick. Alex Ho was named to the President’s 15.

Sunny skies greeted participants at the sixth annual Jumpstart Day, held Saturday at Canadian Tire in Abbotsford. The event was a fund-raiser for Jumpstart, a charity which provides financial assistance for families who can’t afford to enrol their kids in organized sport. Kids’ games, sports, face painting and a barbecue highlighted the local festivities, and approximately $1,600 was raised. “It was a perfect day for it,” enthused Mark Krawiec, general manager of Abbotsford’s Canadian Tire. “It was a great opportunity to raise money for a good cause.”

Jumpstart helped mom get her kids in the game where they had no family, things were not easy. “Life was quite a bit of a struggle for us,” she said. “And it always has been. “It took me a little while to get back to work and to get back in the swing of things after moving here. “We had what we needed to get by and that was it; there wasn’t room for anything extra. There was not even $5 to put towards sports.” With no registration fee to join a flag football league, she signed up all three boys. But eventually it was going to cost money to keep her kids in organized sport and

Growing up, sports were always a big part of Renee Doucette’s life. But when she moved to B.C. from Alberta in 2000 as a single mother with her three young sons Ryan, Ritchie and Reagan –  who were between the ages of five and eight –  times were tough. The boys’ father battled drug addiction which led to the couple breaking up and Renee moving west to start over. With their father not involved in their lives and moving to a place

Jumpstart is a nationally registered charity dedicated to removing financial barriers so kids have the chance to get off the sidelines and into the game. According to a Vision Critical 2011 study, one in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their child in organized sport and

Jumpstart has helped more than 730,000 kids in the past nine years. One hundred per cent of every donation stays in the community in which it was made. With the help of Jumpstart, all three Doucette boys played football and baseball. They were also helped by the local associations, who sometimes didn’t make them pay the registration costs if the family was short. Reagan, the youngest, excelled the most of the three, especially in football with the Langley Minor Football Association and, later on, at Rick Hansen

And he knows that without Jumpstart, none of this may have happened. “Without Jumpstart and the help of my coaches, I wouldn’t have been able to play,” he said. “I love sports; they definitely give kids who don’t have much something to do. It gives them a purpose and confidence and sports are perfect for that.” Q To learn more about how Jumpstart is making an impact or to make a donation, visit canadiantire.ca/jumpstart.

Manpreet Grewal, an elite thrower from Abby Senior, notched a silver medal in the senior girls discus (40.06m) and had a fourth-place finish in the hammer.

als) in everything at the Fraser Valleys, but I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how much more difficult it would be (at provincials), so I really wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting anything.â&#x20AC;? Postma was a high flyer â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  he won gold in the junior boys long jump (6.18m) and added a silver in the triple jump (12.69m) with a distance which would have been good for silver at the senior level as well. Both performances were personal bests â&#x20AC;&#x201C;  a tremendous performance on the pressurepacked provincial stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty crazy,â&#x20AC;? Postma marveled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The long jump medal didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me so much as the distance I jumped. Our (school) record on the wall was 6.02 metres, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever beat that because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy far. But I did. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like a really good jump, and when I got out of the pit, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;That looks pretty far.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Other junior medalists included Mouatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vikramjit Gondara, who took silver in the boys hammer (49.03m) after a terrific duel with teammate Driver. Mennonite Educational Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hannah Konrad claimed bronze in the junior girls 400m (59.12 seconds),

CATS GALORE, TLC has for adoption spayed & neutered adult cats. 604-309-5388 / 604-856-4866

Collie Doodle Puppies (Collie x Poodle) Born Feb 26. Mom is a Rough Collie (45 lbs) and Dad is a small Standard Poodle (50 lbs). Both have health clearances (eyes, hips, elbows). 2 very curly black females avail. We have bred this litter special to create the perfect family companion (intelligent, gentle, easy to train, always willing to please, happy indoors and outdoors, good with children and animals, low to no shed). These puppies will not need a heavy hand to train. They are sweet, kind and sensitive puppies. They will be very similar in looks and in nature to the Golden Doodle only smaller, calmer and will mature sooner. We are a 4H (agility, obedience, showmanship) family and our dogs are a part of our home and life and we wish the same for our puppies. Please consider the time and commitment needed to raise a dog and you will have our support and guidance for life. Pups will have shots and deworming. Reduced to $850. 604820-4827

aterleaf Luxury Condominiums are for those who desire to be an owner rather than a renter, live in a prime area that is still affordable, and who want their home to also be their retreat. Waterleaf believes that coming home should be “the best part of your day,” and are making that possible with their new luxurious condos, located at 2242 Whatcom Road, with Sumas Mountain Village Mall and North Parallel Mall only steps away. “People love the display suite,” says sales manager Janae Nicole. “They say, ‘thank goodness Abbotsford is getting with the times!’ The fireplace is really sleek and modern and buyers love the contemporary bathroom with walkin shower and double sinks.” This fully loaded feature list comes standard! Nine foot ceilings, granite coutertops, ceiling height cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, kitchen pantries, 50" linearelectric fireplaces,

wide-plank laminate flooring, walk-in closets with organizers, soaker tubs, bedroom air conditioning, secure underground parking and storage. The same philosophy of not having any surprise upgrade costs or extra fees applies to the pricing as well. “It’s great that we are transparent with everything we do. The price for each condo is posted on the website for 24/7 access,’’ comments Nicole. “I hear from many purchasers that they were able to crunch the numbers and make their purchase decisions well into the evening hours.” Waterleaf is remarkable value for mountain view homes,” says Nicole. “It’s the smart buyers who know it’s well worth the wait. Buying during the construction stage not only gets them into the market at the lowest price, it also allows them to choose what floor they live on, choose their views and select the colour scheme.”

Commercial energy City planning on how to manage growth

A

ccording to BC Statistics population projections, by the year 2036, Abbotsford will be home to 212,000 people. It’s a growth rate of approximately 50 per cent over the next quarter-century. So the question is not will the city grow, but rather how do you manage that growth? Issues such as land use planning, transit, densification and affordability all become increasingly important as the population expands – as does the need for commercial growth. “We need to find, somehow, about 40,000 jobs. There is always going to be that balance between lifestyle versus land use. Do we want people to have to travel east or west in order to find work?” asked Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman. But the need for commercial industry is twofold. It provides jobs for the growing population as well as services.

Add to the equation that Abbotsford is centrally located and serves a regional market, and commercial planning becomes even more important. In recent years, clusters of commercial and residential development have begun redefining the landscape. Abbotsford now consists of many “centres.” “I can see where we will have mini-centres throughout the city. People are always asking ‘where’s the city’s core,’” said Banman, adding that it’s difficult to name just one area. The newest cluster of development is located at Mt. Lehman Road. Four years ago, Abbotsford attracted Shape Properties’ 600,000-sq.-ft. mall project, called Highstreet. Now complete – tenants include Walmart, London Drugs, Marshalls, Cineplex and more. A new Sandman Hotel is also under construction close to the Highstreet project. “People need to understand that Highstreet

The 600,000 sq.ft. Highstreet mall project off Hwy. 1 near the Mt. Lehman interchange is redefining shopping in Abbotsford.

kept a number of businesses in Abbotsford working, that may not have survived the economic downturn. There is more concrete in Highstreet than there is in BC Place. It is the largest shopping mall built in the last 20 years between Vancouver and Calgary.” Highstreet was not Shape’s only investment in Abbotsford. The Vancouver-based company also built the Parallel Marketplace in the area of Whatcom Road. That 135,000-sq.-ft project on the south side of Sumas Mountain is anchored by Coopers Foods. Plans are in place for phase two of that site. The Mennonite Central Committee has acquired land on Gladys and will relocate and consolidate all of its offices in the area. Construction is underway next to the new federal corrections facility that opened last year. The old Clayburn Brick Plant site, which has now been cleared, can also be developed. “South Fraser Way is ripe for development as

well,” said Banman, who also pointed to the Clearbrook and McCallum Road corridors as areas suited for commercial growth. A combination of commercial and residential structures and the need to accommodate the future growth of UFV are planned. This trend of commercial growth has been occurring for years. In the last few decades, much of Abbotsford’s retail began spreading west from the original downtown. When the big box phenomenon took hold, many such stores were built along South Fraser Way, and the sector continues to grow south along Sumas Way. One of the advantages that Abbotsford has, according to Banman, is the fact that “we are surrounded by such rich farmland that will never be developed.” He can’t imagine development on Matsqui or Sumas Prairie. “We will always have agriculture as a backbone of our economy.”

Buy or rent office space Here’s how to decide By Charles D. Wiebe E.Tech CCC

ooner or later, every business has to consider whether it is better off owning or leasing office space. From law firms to high-tech companies to administrative offices, the decision varies. But here are some elements that most businesses take into account.

cially if you get a fixed-rate loan on the property. Lease and you’re subject to the vagaries of the market when your lease term expires. Many leases also have a clause allowing for an annual cost increase tied to changes in the Consumer Price Index or some other measure.

THE CASH OUTLAY FACTOR:  Generally, you don’t need to put out as much money upfront when you lease as you do when you buy. A quick example: A Commercial REALTOR® is selling a $500,000 commercial property. Someone leasing the same space might pay around $4,000 monthly in rent. Someone looking to buy the space would have to put down approximately $150,000 and also would have had to pay for an appraisal, building inspections, loan fees, property transfer tax and other costs.

THE GROWTH FACTOR:  Buying a space that’s just the right size for you now can look attractive. But what will you do if your business and your space requirement grow over the next few years? Outgrowing a space doesn’t have to be a financial crisis. An example would be to lease out the space you own and move into a new, larger space. Still, growing out of a place you own can involve more upheaval than growing out of a leased space. Sometimes a growing business can avoid the cost and hassle of moving by simply leasing more space in the building it occupies. That’s not an option when you own a building unless you’re only occupying part of it

S

THE FIXED/VARIABLE COST FACTOR: Buy a space and you have a good idea of what your costs are going to be year after year, espe-

TENANT IMPROVEMENTS (TI): Generally, whether you buy or lease a space, you will be responsible to pay for the Tenant Improvements which are specific to the look and requirements of your business. When you buy a space, this investment in TI remains your investment and can many times improve the value of your space for resale. When leasing, the investment of the TI becomes the Landlord’s at the end of the lease period and becomes strictly a cost factor for you.

GETTING MORE HELP In general, leasing tends to appeal to businesspeople who don’t want to make the kind of large upfront investment required with a purchase, who aren’t really sure how much space they’ll ultimately need and who simply don’t want to have to deal with the responsibilities of owning a piece of commercial property. Buying is going to make more sense for businesspeople who are more established, who want to be in one location for several years and who have the financial resources to take on a significant real estate investment. Some of the basics of comparing leasing to buying (trying to predict future price appreciation, considering cash-flow issues and factoring in the cost of a down payment on something you own versus rental payments that don’t build any equity, for example) are similar to the basic issues involved in deciding whether to lease or buy a house. Seek out a Commercial REALTOR® to see what’s right for you and your business.

THE APPRECIATION FACTOR:  Buying a space puts you in a second business: real estate investing. If you’re in an area of appreciating land values, as we are in the Fraser Valley, eventually you can sell the space at a profit. In addition, if you own a place with more space than your business needs, you can rent the excess space, thus becoming a landlord, which can potentially be profitable.
