Homelessness in city gone in two years? Alberta officials tell task force an end to chronic issue is possible Alex BUTLER Abbotsford News

A shift must be made from managing homelessness to ending it – and Abbotsford could end chronic homelessness in less than two years if the city implements such a plan. That’s the advice to this city from Tim Richter and Diane Randall, delegates from Calgary and Lethbridge, Alta., who have created local strate-

gies to dramatically reduce homelessness. Richter and Randall met with Abbotsford’s task force on homelessness last Thursday, painting a picture of a problem that can be solved with a focused plan and connecting available services. “Homelessness itself is not complex – the system we create around it is,” said Richter. Now president of the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness, he was formerly the president of the Calgary Homeless Foundation where he led

a 10-year plan to end homelessness – the first of its kind in Canada. Many other cities have followed and created similar plans to end chronic homelessness. Richter emphasized the need to connect services, and focus them on the outcome of ending homelessness. He said a housing-first approach is necessary,

Labelled as the world’s greatest Pink Floyd show, Brit Floyd performed at Abbotsford Centre Sunday night. The three-hour concert went through the recording career of the iconic British progressive rock band, which spanned from 1967 to 1994. The show captured note-for-note detail from hallmark songs and other lesser-known recordings.

Teachers’ one-day strikes continue Abbotsford and Mission teachers will be participating in province-wide rotating strikes again this week, for the third consecutive week. The job action will take place in Mission on Thursday, June 12 and in Abbotsford on Friday, June 13. Superintendent of schools Kevin Godden said although schools are “technically open” during the oneday strike, there will not be staff to provide the necessary supervision and instruction for students. The latest BC Teachers’ Federation wage proposal is a total increase of 9.75 per cent over four years, plus cost-of-living adjustments in each year depending on inflation. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, representing the province’s 60 school districts, has proposed a 7.5 per cent wage increase over six years, and added a $1,200 signing bonus. Teachers voted on Monday and Tuesday on a potential full-scale strike, but results were not being released until Tuesday night, after press deadline. Visit abbynews.com for updates.

CEO leaves Fraser Health Jeff NAGEL Black Press

Dr. Nigel Murray has stepped down as president and CEO of Fraser Health amid an extensive review that is expected to soon bring significant changes to the health region. Murray served as the top administrator at Fraser for seven years and cited family reasons for returning to New Zealand, where he is in the running for a similar job. No severance will be paid out because he’s resigning. Dr. David Ostrow,

the former CEO of Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, takes over as interim CEO of Fraser Health. The announcement is the latest shakeup at Fraser, where the former board chair David Mitchell was removed in

April by the provincial government. The board has since been chaired by Wynne Powell, the longtime board chair of the Provincial Health Services Authority who also chairs B.C. Emergency Services.

Powell said the strategic review committee is finalizing its recommendations for improvements at Fraser. He wouldn’t reveal details of the findings but suggested they point mainly to smarter use of Fraser’s budget.

Year-end strike unethical

The outcome of a vote by B.C. teachers on a full-scale strike next week was expected to be tallied last night (Tuesday), after The News’ deadline. We anticipate the outcome will be in the affirmative, and the BC Teachers’ Federation will use it to exert “maximum pressure” on the provincial government. Should Victoria decide not to cave in to the BCTF’s demands – which it cannot – and push come to shove, teachers could be out of their classrooms in the final weeks of the school year. That would simply be unconscionable, and unethical. Students across the province have already been negatively impacted by three weeks of rotating one-day teacher walkouts in every district. While the government has guaranteed final exam marking and grades, kids undergoing final lessons, year-end review, and in some cases, getting extra help in attaining the best marks possible in

final unit tests and exams – top academics and learning challenged alike – have missed vital instructional time. This is certainly not “about the children,” as the BCTF insists. This is about a prolonged, self-serving spitting contest between the provincial government and one of the most militant unions in B.C. Staging a full-scale strike in the critical closing frames of a school year would be nothing more than deliberately detrimental for tens of thousands of public school children and teens who have already paid a price in this unacceptable battle. There is nothing about jeopardizing the achievement and enjoyment of this year’s crop of students – especially the Grade 12 grads – that is justifiable in principle or practicality. When this battle finally ends, these kids will be the losers. And that is just wrong.

Other Hand “Pave paradise, put up a parking lot” should be and perhaps is, the title of a study by the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, published last week in the Vancouver Province, that calls for “liberalization” of the housing market by converting Fraser Valley farmland into residential lots. The Frontier Centre it appears, believes that unchecked and encouraged urban sprawl will reduce density and make housing in Vancouver affordable. Yessiree, why spend $2 million on a water-view condo in the West End when you can buy a $200,000 lot with a view of the dairy barn’s manure pit? And all that flat farmland will greatly simplify the installation of streets, sewers and waterlines. An additional benefit of urbanization, of course, is that due to

impending complaints, it will put an end to most of the annoying flies, and the pervasive odour of manure we out in the country occasionally have to put up with. The thing about our dairy air, however, is that it is “the smell of money” that keeps our economy stable. I have to assume Frontier study author Wendell Cox was encouraged by the provincial government’s decision to alter the ALR, slicing it into two zones. From what little I understand about the legislation, nothing really has changed for the prime farmland within the Lower Mainland – the same land Mr. Cox suggests be converted to housing. Granted, even for housing, Yarrow farmland will be a lot less expensive than Yaletown, but it is not just the price of land that measures the cost of residential development. Building prices throughout the Lower Mainland are virtually the same from Horseshoe Bay to Hope. Finding a plumber or a carpenter, the cost of cement or structural wood, at a marginally lower rate anywhere in the Fraser Valley is as scarce as the hens’ teeth Mr. Cox wants to displace.

And in case his study overlooked it, might I remind that there are still many thousands of acres/hectares still undeveloped for residential housing – Sumas Mountain being one area, the forested valleys and hills north of the Fraser another

What good is a cheap roof when you can’t afford to put food on the table? – without paving a single acre of farmland. Might I also point out that cheap and available housing isn’t the only factor in the high cost of Vancouver’s livability. There are things like jobs, shopping and transit. Vastly increasing sprawl will dramatically affect one’s ability to move throughout the Lower Mainland. And move people we will need to do because homes without nearby jobs means commuting, and in no time Port Mann’s fancy new 10lane widest-bridge-in-the-world will soon

become as jammed as the old one. And without industrial contributors to municipal coffers, lots might be cheaper but residential taxes will be ridiculously high to pay for the needed service infrastructure and transit requirements. All of the supposed financial benefits of Mr. Cox’s study are immediately cancelled when the loss of food production enters the equation. What good is a cheap roof when you can’t afford to put food on the table? Destroying forever what is some of the finest agricultural land in the world to make livability, in the very short term, a little less expensive or Vancouver a little less dense makes absolutely no sense. Mr. Cox is obviously no rocket scientist. Equally obvious is the fact that he used no science whatsoever. Anyone could have in five minutes written a “study” claiming converting farmland to housing is cheap. What gives studies meaning is the thought processes, and the long-term impacts and benefits, that go into them. This study had none. markrushton@abbynews.com

PLEASE RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER


letters Taxpayers forgotten in teachers’ strike I would like to voice my viewpoint on this teachers strike. There are many viewpoints, pros and cons, about this whole mess, but it comes down to the children, right? I think not. Their future is in the teachers’ hands, the good teachers who love their job regardless of any issues around them and the not-so-good ones who should take on a different profession.  I think one big thing that has been forgotten in this mess is who actually pays these teachers huge salaries, great benefits and pensions. We, the taxpayers, that’s who. We employ them and we should stand up and have a say. There are issues that should be addressed, i.e. the children that need special attention – perhaps hiring more teachers who are trained to teach these special children.  To give all teachers (good and bad) in B.C. a salary increase is

not in the best interest of our economy. They should be glad they have a job when there are a lot of unemployed out there with this employers’ market and so many looking for a job.  They have pensions and good benefits, where so many other companies don’t offer that.  We as taxpayers should be able to report, from our children’s input, any teacher that is in the wrong profession. If they don’t do their job they should be given warnings and then fired. I’m sure there are a lot of new graduates that would love the opportunity to start their career. Children come first is not the case here, and I don’t believe that all teachers are on board with what the union is doing, but those who are should rethink their position and stop using the children in all this. What example are they leaving for that generation?  Jean Irwin, Abbotsford

CUPE staff get 5.5 per cent over five years

The province has struck a tentative deal with 34,000 school support staff on the eve of B.C. teachers’ vote on staging a full-scale strike. The five-year agreement reached Saturday provides wage increases

totalling 5.5 per cent, with potential for more tied to the performance of the B.C. economy – in line with the standard settlements reached with other public sector unions. It covers education assistants, school secretaries, caretakers, bus drivers and other education support staff,

mostly represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). The union and provincial negotiators with the B.C. Public School Employers Association (BCSPEA) hammered the deal out in just five days following the start of talks last Tuesday. “This success provides

ample evidence that the bargaining system works — when the parties come to the table with reasonable expectations and a flexible, solution-oriented approach,” said BCPSEA public administrator Michael Marchbank said. “We built some momentum very quickly,” CUPE B.C. spokesman Rob Hewitt said. He said the union also secured increased hours for education assistants and standardization gains to extended health benefit plans. Also included is an Employee Support Grant covering any wages CUPE members lose by refusing to cross legal picket lines. The deal running through to the summer of 2019 must still be ratified by union members. School support staff get further wage increases in the final four years of the agreement equivalent to half of any increase of provincial economic growth in excess of the budget’s forecast.

Grant Mottershead and Barbara Bremner have volunteered for the event, which didn’t take place in 2013 because there was no run organizer. It had previously happened every year in Abbotsford since 1985. The 2014 run, scheduled for Sept. 14, is the 34th annual, and it raises money for cancer research. In 1980, with one leg having been amputated due to cancer, Fox embarked on a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Although the spread of his cancer eventually forced him to end his quest after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres, and ultimately cost him his life, his efforts resulted in a lasting, worldwide legacy.

Get creatively messy at The Reach’s camps The Reach is offering three summer camps this year. “It’s going to be a total blast,” said Julie Epp, cultural programs assistant for The Reach, who will be leading the camps this summer. Campers who just can’t get enough art in the day will love the Art Cart Masterpieces camp, July 21-25, where inspiration will come from the four exhibitions on from July 17 to Sept. 7. If your camper loves to experiment then The Art of Tinkering is the camp for them. From July 28 to Aug. 1, campers will see how science, math, English, social studies and art all come together. This camp is all about play, so get ready to get a little messy. The Reach will host History is Alive! from Aug. 11-15. This camp is all about the funny, fantastic stories of when Abbotsford was just a little village. Campers can see how great stories can make great art projects while learning along the way. All camps run during their week from 9 a.m. to

JOHN MORROW Abbotsford News

The Board would like to ensure our valued partners are represented and on hand to hear the report and recommendations.

Kristoffeer Goos: RHIP/Owner with client Barb Stirskey

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

Church explained that the erosion arcs around Abbotsford are a result of the river attempting to straighten its course at the Matsqui bend. The slope of the river flattens out near Abbotsford, causing gravel and sand to accumulate into sand bars. That forces the river to push hard against the bank, which scalps the soil and causes “small landslides,” resulting in erosion arcs. One long-term solution would be to move the dike back and allow the river to “take the 40 or 50 metres that it might eventually want,” which would allow the water to move quicker

Four locals earn Skills Canada medals

Four Abbotsford students who competed in the Skills Canada Competition last week in Toronto have returned home with medals. Elijah Baluyan and Karmyn Chretien of Robert Bateman Secondary took silver in 2D character computer animation, while Patty Chomseng and Monica Sivongsa of

First prize in video contest WorkSafeBC competition

Students from W.J. Mouat Secondary took first prize in the Grade 8-10 category for their French animated video in the 2014 WorkSafeBC Student Safety Video Contest. Students will share $500 in prize money and W.J. Mouat Secondary will receive $2,000. Students from 55 high schools across B.C. submitted videos in a variety of formats, including live action and animation. Entries were judged based on their impact, transferable safety message, original creative concept, and technical execution. They were also judged on how well they provided a youth perspective on workplace safety, and how well safety messages targeted young workers and their peer groups. Prizes were awarded in two categories: Grades 8 to 10 and Grades 11 and 12, with first place, runner-up, honourable mention and People’s Choice in each category. This year a new category was added for the top six-second Vine video. The 2014 theme for the WorkSafeBC video contest was “Don’t let your first job be your last.”

Rick Hansen Secondary earned bronze in 3D character computer animation. Dawson Procee of

Abbotsford Senior Secondary also attended the event, competing in welding, but did not place in

the top three. The Skills Canada event ran from June 4 to 7. Gold medal winners from that

event now compete in the WorldSkills Canadian Trials for a chance to win a spot in the WorldSkills

Competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2015. The five Abbotsford students qualified to attend the Skills

Canada Competition after winning gold medals at the BC Skills Contest at Tradex in Abbotsford in April.

‘Buddy bench’ at local school

Feel safe, see the difference.

1 888 836-9786

terryfox.org

Residents around Mt. Lehman may have noticed something different on the elementary school grounds in the last couple of weeks. It’s a new “buddy bench,� based on an idea started by a Grade 2 student in Pennsylvania named Christian Buck, who wanted a place for students to go when they had no one with whom to talk or play. Those students can go to the bench and be joined by another student to either stay and talk or go elsewhere together to play. Sara Caslake, a student at Mt. Lehman Elementary, saw a show about it on TV and thought it would be a good idea for her school. The Caslake family and the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group (GRGSG) then raised and donated funds towards the cost of the materials. Abbotsford school district personnel donated their time and expertise to design and install the bench beside the school playground.

Closest shot lands 15 feet from pin Rotary’s Million Dollar Hole in One Contest raises about $68K for Holmberg House

Tyler OLSEN Abbotsford News

With $1 million on the line, Marty Peters accomplished exactly what he set out to do with his last shot Sunday at Fraserglen Golf Course: he didn’t duff the shot. A c t u a l l y, the 3 0 - y e a r - o l d Abbotsford commercial millwork salesman did better than that in the finals of the Rotary Club of Abbotsford’s Million Dollar Hole in One Contest. Although Peters didn’t send his ball 163 yards into the cup to win $1 million, he did take top spot by landing his shot 15 feet, six inches from the pin. Peters, who was the second of the three finalists to take a shot at the pin, said he just tried to focus on making contact with the ball. “I just didn’t want to hit a worm burner, he said. “I was just hoping for a connection so I was pretty happy it went in the air.” Peters said he tries to hit the links every couple weeks, usu-

grouping of 10 golfers, all of whom could have won $100,000 with a hole-in-one. Coan’s semifinal shot brought gasps from onlookers as it flew right at the pin, coming to a rest just five feet past the cup. The event raised about $68,000 for the Abbotsford Hospice Society’s Holmberg House adult hospice. That included a donation of more than $20,000 from Abbotsford philanthropist Dave Holmberg Sr., who pledged to match all donations collected over $25,000. Over 14 years, the event has now raised nearly half a million dollars for Rotary projects including Holmberg house, which is named after Dave Holmberg Jr., who was 48 when he died of cancer three years ago. “That’s not bad for hitting a bunch of balls,” Rotary’s Barry Champion said. Before the final, Holmberg thanked the golfers and prom-

ised that the $12-million hospice would be completed soon. While it had originally been slated for completion this year, now-resolved financing issues have slowed construction. The Abbotsford Hospice Society still needs $4 million to complete the $12-million project, but Holmberg was confident that it would soon be finished. “I assure you, it will be done by summer or fall of next year,” he said. The Million Dollar Hole in One began last Saturday and ran through the week, with golfers taking aim at a pin 95 yards away. The top seven each day, plus five more randomly drawn golfers, qualified for Sunday’s quarterfinals. The last week saw 11 holes in one, including two by Brodie Williams. Turchen and Coan also both found the cup. Peters, meanwhile, got to hit Sunday thanks to the random draw.

Valley Rebels snag 10-7 win over North Shore Senior lacrosse team battles Tri-City Bandits Saturday in Port Coquitlam Jason ROESSLE Abbotsford News

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win. Valley Rebels’ coach Jim Nishiyama said the 10-7 victory over the North Shore Friday wasn’t a “complete performance,� but the points for the win kept the team in the middle of the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association standings with 12 points. The Rebels were up 3-1 after the first period with goals from Sean Kelly, Nash Harrison and Brennan Galbraith – territory in which the team has found itself before. They would go five or six up at the start, then hold on and see the gap erode, said Nishiyama. This time out, the Rebels held the advantage throughout the game, jumping up 8-4 after the second, and finishing strong with two more goals in the third. Kelly was the top scorer of the night with five points (two goals, three assists), followed closely by Harrison, who snagged three goals and one assist. Nishiyama said Kelly’s performance was on par. “Sean Kelly is usually good for four to five points a night. He’s one of the major components of our offense. Other players key on him and it frees up others,� said the coach. And while the team has lots of firepower, some of it was absent Friday, including standout players Geordie Wells and Shaun McRae. In the past two weeks, the Rebels pushed the undefeated Tri-City Bandits in a 10-7 home loss May 30, and beat the Port Moody Thunder 10-9 on the road June 3.

Against the Bandits, the Rebels took a 6-5 lead into the third period at MSA Arena,

only to watch Tri-City rally with five goals in the final frame, including three from

Brian Gillis. Sean Kelly paced the Abbotsford squad with two goals and an assist.

The Rebel next play in Port Coquitlam against the Tri-City Bandits on June 14 at

5:30 p.m. “They’re a great team,� said Nishiyama. “They

Went home to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on June 5, 2014 at the age of 55. Marlene was born in Abbotsford, BC on November 19, 1958 to parents Henry and Eleanor Unger. Her husband Eddie, her children Amy, Ryan and wife (Jessica), and grandson Elliot, her dad and stepmother (Sandy), siblings Denise (nee Unger) and husband Rick Matis, and brother Darrell Unger mourn her passing, but her mom predeceased her in August 1992. Marlene was a student at the Canadian Bible College in Regina, Saskatchewan preparing for Christian Ministry when she met an RCMP trainee named Edward (Eddie) MacDonald whom she married on September 10, 1982. Marlene was a kind, loving, selfless woman who will be dearly missed. Marlene was fortunate to be able to make her home in Abbotsford, because her RCMP husband’s career was always in close proximity to Abbotsford. Marlene was a gifted seamstress, her talent surfacing early in her life by sewing her own version of a Princess Di wedding gown. Her talent expressed itself in more than one direction however, art, house design and decorating, cake making, fish pond designing and gardening. Marlene loved animals, even raised and sold puppies for a short time in her life. The family wishes to thank Dr. Burns, Dr. Galbraith, Dr. Constantino, and Dr. Newton for their care over the last several months; along with everyone at Christine Morrison Hospice for their compassionate care during the last few weeks of Marlene’s life. A Celebration of Life was held on Tuesday, June 10th at 1:30 pm at Sevenoaks Alliance Church on 2575 Gladwin Rd. in Abbotsford. The MacDonald family, based on Marlene’s wishes, would like to advise people that if they so desire to buy flowers it would be our request in lieu of them please feel free to donate to the Abbotsford Hospice and give to the “Holmberg House” in memory of Marlene MacDonald by mail at Abbotsford Hospice Society, 33134 Marshall Road, Abbotsford, BC, V2S 1K5, by phone 604-852-2456, or online: www.abbotsfordhospice.org

Paulsen Phoebe Helen Paulsen (86) went peacefully to be with her Lord June 9, 2014. She is lovingly remembered by her nine surviving children: Karen Krenzler (Elton), Ingrid Peters (Alvin), Marion Wilson (Brian), Larry, Katie, Danny, Susan (Alain), and Shirley; multiple grandchildren and great-grandchildren and a host of wonderful nephews, nieces, former foster children, and international students. She was predeceased by her husband, Ted, son Gordon, and granddaughter Tara. She was the last of seven siblings, and outlived all her in-laws. Phoebe was an amazing woman of incredible strength and tenor. Mother of ten, foster parent to over 80, she also had a daycare in our family home. She focused her life on children and advocacy for ‘the least of these’. Once officially recognized by Grace McCarthy for service to children, Phoebe’s love for children was always evident. In Abbotsford in 1990 she was honoured to be Mother of the Year. Her service to community included President of the Dawson Creek Child Development Centre, President of the Abbotsford Golden K Kiwanis, service to the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast, being a gleaner, and quietly assisting those who needed it most, including the Little Nun, feeding Abbotsford’s homeless. A Memorial Service and reception will be held Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the South Abbotsford MB Church gymnasium, 32424 Huntingdon Road, Abbotsford.
