DEADLY ‘Sometimes the DRUG: cards just fall’ Mother-of-three’s death underscores danger of fentanyl

Tyler OLSEN Abbotsford News

WACKY VIDEO GETS ATTENTION

Heather was a mother of three who loved to bake and would volunteer at her oldest daughter’s school. She didn’t look anything like a stereotypical drug user, but in the early-morning hours of June 30, her husband Boris found his commonlaw wife, who occasionally used heroin, slumped on the living room carpet. The paramedics who rushed to the house while Boris tried to revive his wife would later tell him Heather, 27, had likely been dead for two hours. A toxicology report later showed that she had unwittingly injected methylfentanyl – an especially potent version of fentanyl – thinking it was heroin. On Wednesday, Boris sat smoking a cigarette on the steps of the Abbotsford home he shared with his wife for years. The deaths of several Vancouverarea people at the hands of fentanyl disguised as heroin in recent weeks have prompted public warnings. Boris wants the public to know the issue affects a wide spectrum of people in the community. “People need to realize it doesn’t just affect a certain type of people,” he said. His wife had began taking Oxycontin before moving onto heroin. After stopping using for several months, she had returned to the drug “off and on” after a failed early pregnancy left her in the hospital with physical and emotional Continued on A4

In addition to having helped connect some 40 users with the prescription they need to obtain a naloxone kit, Thompson has also trained more than double that number – including the mothers and children of users – in the administration of the antidote. As many as 200 overdoses in British Boris Columbia have been reversed, thanks to the program. “Just having the ability to save your own child’s life or a friend is huge,” she said. “When I think of all the people I lost, it’s such a sense of relief and hope that so many people don’t have to die.” Some hurdles remain, though.

To her daughters, aged two, four and six, she was “super-mom,” said her husband. Today, he just wishes he could hold Heather again, and warns against judging a person for a decision they made. “Sometimes you do choose it, but sometimes the cards just fall. It’s what’s easy, it’s what helps you cope with the situation at hand,” he said. For some, those choices involve alcohol or marijuana. For others – even that person next door – it’s harder drugs. Boris pointed to the recent deaths of a North Vancouver couple from fentanyl. He has his own history with narcotics, and has a criminal record. After a tough childhood, Boris said he turned to dealing drugs. Those activities would eventually leave him facing criminal charges on several occasions. He said his own drug of choice has been cocaine. His use had diminished in recent years, although he said he used cocaine for the first time in six months just a week before Heather’s overdose. He said he wasn’t sure how his wife obtained her drugs. He had been working as a foreman at a construction site, although he’s currently on employment insurance as he works to deal with the aftermath of Heather’s death. His personal history informs his thinking about the dangers of drugs that appear to be one substance, but are actually another. “You’re not safe with whatever you do,” he said. “For all you know, you can do something today and be fine, and do the same thing tomorrow and it can kill you.” Boris said he was asleep when his wife overdosed, and believes that he might have been able to save the woman he called the love of his life if he had been present.

Motorcyclist killed in crash, son survives

Abbotsford News

A father-and-son summer motorcycle ride turned tragic in Glen Valley on Wednesday afternoon. A 41-year-old Abbotsford man was killed and his 10-year-

old son is in hospital after the motorcycle they were riding collided with a farm truck in north Langley. Langley RCMP Sgt. Alex Mulvihill said the crash, in the 26700 block of 88 Avenue, took place just before 5 p.m.

The man and his son were travelling east on 88 Avenue when they collided with a flat-bed truck making a left out of a driveway onto 88 Avenue. Both the man and boy were ejected from the bike. The man died at

the scene. The boy was airlifted to B.C. Children’s Hospital, where he is said to be in stable condition. Both were wearing helmets and that likely prevented any head injuries for the boy, said

police. Police are investigating whether poor sight lines played a role in the crash, which occurred on a small, slightly elevated bridge. The motorcyclist may have had the view ahead blocked by the rise in the road.

She and Olive, who have kept in touch over the years, reunited last Friday at their old high school – located on Pine Street, just east of Gladys

Avenue – which is now Abbotsford Virtual School. Alice – whose surname is now Ohashi – showed up first for the reunion with her sister Tomi Hisaoka, who also attended

the school in Grade 10, and Alice’s daughter Joy and granddaughter Alison. They had just come from visiting the property at the northeast corner of Gladwin and Downes

roads where Alice and Tomi lived as children and where their family grew strawberries. Their father had bought the 40-acre site in 1919. Joy said it has been on her mom’s “bucket list” for quite some time to return to Abbotsford. “Sometimes you begin to think about the good old days,” said Alice, 89, who now lives in Taber, Alta. Olive – whose surname is now Curtis – lives in Acme, Wash., and couldn’t wait to reconnect with her beloved friend. The pair have seen each other only one other time, about eight years ago. Brad Hutchinson, principal of Abbotsford Virtual School, was contacted and asked if the group could meet at

QUESTION

WebTalk

OF THE WEEK Are stricter conditions needed for sex offenders living in the community?

Hospital security Can the security help with cleaning too, because that’s something that needs addressing Clay McLean

To answer, go to abbynews.com

Hiring a few more security guards making 13 or 14 dollars an hour isn’t going to solve a thing. In order to make a real difference I think peace officers who have a decent wage and real skill and experience should be implemented. Sheldon Highland

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Has the dropping value of the Canadian dollar reduced your visits to the U.S.?

Having been at the emergency room at ARH when a young man was having what looked like a homicidal tantrum, I have a lot of respect for the security people there. They arrived quickly and they got the guy out of the building without him hurting anyone. Stephanie McAllister

Sorting out federal election issues Tom Fletcher

B.C. Views The first, and perhaps the only, complete English-language debate in this long federal election campaign has helped define the issues, and the non-issues. I’m not going to try to tell you who “won” or “came out swinging,” because this is not a sporting event. If you’re paying attention in August, bless you, and you probably have a favourite already. First, let’s deal with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s diabolical scheme to extend the length of the formal election period. This, according to national pundits, is an extension of his evil plot to attract more financial supporters than the other parties, and spend the money. In other words, it’s a non-issue and any opponent who dwells on it looks like a whiner. This is the first election in modern Canadian history to follow a four-year schedule. National pundits spent months

telling us Harper was going to use a loophole in his own election law to call a spring vote before the economy tanked. Didn’t happen, and now the Conservatives are rightly under scrutiny about their economic management. Incumbent manipulation of election timing is over, and that’s good. Scheduled elections by their nature create longer campaigns, as demonstrated in B.C. and the United States. So they should be conducted under formal campaign rules, which limit the noise of public sector unions and other special interests. Another non-issue is the non-existent deficit and recession that supposedly grips Canada. On actual results, there is a slim surplus, and if – a big if – Saudi Arabia continues to depress world oil prices, there may be a modest deficit by next spring. The Bank of Canada’s recent move to devalue the dollar has already produced a rebound in exports and tourism, which any

government would appreciate. Have you tried to find parking at the mall lately? Of particular interest to B.C. voters is the contest between NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Green Party leader Elizabeth May. May used what may be her only national debate appearance to press Mulcair to oppose the TransMountain pipeline expansion project before hearings are complete. Mindful of Adrian Dix’s disastrous 2013 decision to do the same in B.C., Mulcair insisted he would wait for the federal review, even though he considers it to be inadequate. This is, of course, all theatre. Based on their actions, the NDP, Green Party and Liberals are all opposed not just to oil pipelines but export gas pipelines as well. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau wants to cancel capital cost allowances for liquefied natural gas investment that have been granted by B.C. and Ottawa, which could be a dealbreaker for LNG.

The Bank of Canada’s recent move to devalue the dollar has already produced a rebound in exports and tourism.

B.C. NDP leader John Horgan formalized his opposition to the TransMountain expansion last week, in a letter filed with the National Energy Board. But we’re expected to believe that Mulcair has a different position, for now. Harper was forced to admit that his long effort to persuade U.S. President Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL pipeline has failed, and the project will have to wait until Obama leaves office next year. The debate also confirmed positions on Canada’s modest role in bombing Islamic State terrorist positions in Iraq and Syria. The Conservatives are for it, and the Liberals, NDP and Greens are against it. Trudeau set the stage for the contest in Quebec, which B.C. voters can only watch from afar to see if it once again decides the shape of their federal government. Trudeau pushed Mulcair on his cynical bid to court the separatist voters who suddenly swung to Jack Layton’s NDP in 2011. Like petroleum prices, it’s beyond our control.

No protection My family grows blueberries in Abbotsford. As anyone who has bought blueberries knows, they don’t last forever, and you had better eat them quickly before they’re past their peak. Part of running a successful business, whether it be in blueberries or televisions, is getting your product to market.  Unfortunately, as is the case in any business, sometimes the buyers of your product either can’t or won’t pay for it due to bankruptcy or insolvency.  If I sold TVs, then in such a circumstance I would be able to reclaim my product, but with blueberries, due to their short shelf life, once they’re gone, they’re gone. My family operates blueberry farms both in Canada and the U.S.  In the U.S., if a buyer can’t or won’t pay, growers have the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act Trust (PACA) that we can rely upon to help us get the value of our produce back. Canada has no such protection for fruit and vegetable growers.  Up until Oct. 1, 2014, Canadian growers were protected in the U.S. because of an exemption that they afforded us. However, the U.S. got tired of asking Canada for over 30 years to create a similar trust and revoked our preferential status, making Canadian fruit and vegetable growers vulnerable to major financial losses north and now south of the border.  Due to the debilitating cost, most growers and sellers have to just walk away. The financial impact to these growers and our industry can be debilitating.  The lack of protection in Canada is not only a risk to us, but also to our greatest trading partner, making Canada a less desirable place to do business. Furthermore, consumers are affected through higher product costs as sellers try to offset the risks. The Canadian produce industry is asking all parties to make financial protection for fresh fruit and vegetable growers a priority in the upcoming federal election. We’re calling on the government of Canada to create a no-cost deemed trust like PACA which will benefit Canada’s produce industry and the consumers of our fruits and vegetables. This is the first growing season that we have been unprotected in the U.S. as well as in Canada, and as of yet I, and my fellow growers, haven’t seen the full impact. In the States, I have PACA, in Canada, nothing. Canada can’t afford to do business like this, and neither can I. Bar Hayre Owner, Mirage Blueberries

Much loved corn on the cob A much loved side dish with summer meals is good old fashioned corn on the cob. Farm fresh corn during the summer is very abundant and popular in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia where I live, but I know that there are many other areas also rich in this agricultural gold. No matter where one resides in North America, it always seems to be available fresh during the summer. Whole corn on the cob should either be eaten on the day of purchase or stored in the refrigerator, as the natural sugars convert to starch faster in the presence of warm temperatures. Corn can be a very healthy part of a balanced diet as its dietary profile includes vitamin B1, folate, dietary fiber, vitamin C, phosphorus, and manganese. Everything however should be con-

sumed in moderation, including the amount of butter and salt that is applied to the finished product. Fresh cracked pepper is one of my favourite toppings (along with the butter and salt) and is a great way to add tons of flavour. Let your creativity run wild in the kitchen and discover what else you can top your corn on the cob with. The internet and local libraries are full of great recipe ideas. If grilling your corn on the cob instead of boiling it, try it over lump charcoal — the taste difference is amazing. I simply pull off the husks and place the cobs directly on the grill, while rotating them occasionally until mostly all the kernels are slightly charred. The uses for fresh corn on the cob do not stop

with just cooking whole. By standing the corn on end, carefully take a sharp knife and run it down the cob to remove the kernels. This will allow you to enjoy the fresh taste of corn in any recipe that calls for kernels of corn. One tip to catch the kernels efficiently is to use an angel food cake pan. With the cake pan sitting securely on a damp towel on the counter, stand the point of the cob of corn on the inner tube of the pan coming up the center. This will help to keep the cob steady and the falling removed kernels will collect in the cake pan. Try this compound butter recipe for something different the next time you have corn on the cob. One our favourites.

‘Dreams have come true’

the site, which operated as Philip Sheffield High School from 1936 to 1955 and then as an elementary until 1986. Alice and Tomi were looking through school memorabilia that Hutchinson had laid out for them when Olive, 89, arrived with her son Lawson.

WATER RESTRICTIONS

“Go for gold!”

She and Alice immediately moved toward one another, and then hugged and held hands for several minutes before sitting down to talk. Olive, who grew up on a dairy farm on Sumas Prairie and went on to graduate from the high school, said the pair easily bonded as teens.

“I just enjoyed smart people,” she said. Alice recalled a particular teacher. “I remember Mr. Topper because we were running upstairs and he said, ‘Next time you do that, you’re going to write a big essay.’ ” Tomi said she used to sit behind George

Ferguson – who served as Abbotsford’s mayor from 1972-2002 and 2005-2008 – although she couldn’t recall any stories about him. After the reunion, Joy said her mom was still glowing from the trip. “She told me that now all of her dreams have come true.”

Guilty plea A man has pleaded guilty to three charges related to two backto-back robberies in Abbotsford in 2013. Kerry Paul Morin, 27, robbed the two businesses – the Red Apple Food Store on Marshall Road and an Esso convenience store on Huntingdon Road – within an hour of each other on Oct. 22, 2013. Morin was arrested a month later while walking in Langley. He pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery and one count of using an imitation firearm, and sentencing is slated for Oct. 21.

Fraser Health execs paid $2.3 million in 2014 Jeff NAGEL and Tyler OLSEN Black Press

Top executives at Fraser Health collected a total of nearly $2.3 million in pay, benefits and other compensation last year. Former president and CEO Dr. Nigel Murray was paid $153,000 for serving just over half the year until he resigned effective last July 10. That included $100,575 in salary, about $16,000 in benefits and pension, and nearly $35,000 in unused vacation payout, according to the health authority’s financial disclosures. Murray was not paid a severance because he resigned voluntarily to return to New Zealand as the province was set to unveil significant reforms at the health authority. Dr. David Ostrow took over from Murray as interim CEO for the second half of the year, drawing total compensation of $140,000. A new permanent CEO – Michael Marchbank –  took over in early January this year at an annual salary of $345,000. The highest paid executive last year was Andrew Webb, vicepresident of medicine, who was paid a $271,440 salary and

combined compensation of $321,000. Vice-president of infomatics Philip Barker and vice-president of operations and strategic planning Marc Pelletier both received combined compensation of about $293,000. Dr. Paul van Buynder, the vicepresident of population health and chief medical health officer, resigned to return to his native Australia last October, receiving just over $167,000 for the truncated year. He was replaced by Dr. Victoria Lee, who had previously served as an executive medical director, and collected total compensation of $280,700 last year. Other Fraser Health executives on the authority’s disclosure of highest paid positions included Peter Goldthorpe, the vicepresident of corporate services and facilities, who received total compensation of $280,000, and Roy Morton, the interim vice-president of medicine and regional programs, who received $265,500. The $2.3 million in combined compensation of the executive positions disclosed by Fraser is about 0.07 per cent of the health authority’s $3.1 billion budget.

A man who was arrested in June just minutes after breaking into a video games store has been sentenced for his crime. Dustin Joseph Murphy, 30, was sentenced Aug. 6 in Abbotsford provincial court to 30 days in jail and one year of probation. He pleaded guilty to five charges – theft of a motor vehicle, break and enter, possession of a break-in instrument, and two counts of breaching his conditions. Murphy was arrested June 8 while he had a truck backed up to the front door of the EB Games location in the 1300 block of Sumas Way. Police were alerted to the break-in when the store’s alarm went off at about 1:30 a.m. Two plainclothes officers who were nearby boxed in the vehicle, identified themselves and ordered Murphy to the ground. He was in custody nine minutes after the alarm had sounded.

All-candidates meetings set Chamber to hold meetings for both ridings Tyler OLSEN Abbotsford News

Conservatives choose candidate for new riding The Conservative Party of Canada has a new candidate for the riding of MissionMatsqui-Fraser Canyon. Brad Vis was announced as the party’s candidate on Tuesday. Vis was previously the communications and forward planning advisor to Abbotsford MP Ed Fast. He left that job to return to Abbotsford, where he had been working on agri-business development as an associate for Corpus Management Group. Vis’s nomination comes nearly three weeks after the party’s previous candidate for the riding, Liv Grewal, had been forced to withdraw. Vis will square off against Liberal Jati Sidhu, Arthur Green of the Green Party and independent candidate Wyatt Scott. The NDP has yet to announce their candidate for the riding, but has a meeting scheduled for Aug. 16 to pick who will run.

Abbotsford has lowest election expenditures limit in B.C.

1.

ea.

The Abbotsford riding has the second-lowest expense limit for local candidates in British Columbia, but candidates vying to represent the area in the House of Commons don’t expect it to be a problem. Candidates in Abbotsford are allowed to spend no more than $201,361.09 in the election. Limits are based on both a riding’s number of voters and size. The limits have been increased to account for this year’s record-long campaign. The Abbotsford figure is ahead of only SurreyNewton, where candidates can spend $197,640. Kootenay-Columbia has the highest limit, at more than $275,000. As he runs to retain his seat, incumbent Member of Parliament Ed Fast said he doesn’t anticipate needing to spend to the limit. “We fully expect that we will not be spending anywhere near the maximum we are allowed,” Fast told The News. “We’re going to use the amount supporters have entrusted us with wisely.” Fast, who hosted Defence Minister Jason Kenney at a fundraiser for Conservative supporters on

Saturday, has opened a campaign office at Unit A 33271 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford. NDP candidate Jen Martel said her expenditures will be based on how much money flows in from supporters, and that they will be focusing on personal interactions with voters. The party hasn’t yet set up a campaign office, and Martel – a professional lifeguard and first-aid trainer – said she has been spending most of her evenings knocking on doors. Green candidate Stephen Fowler is out of the country. The Liberals have not yet nominated a candidate. In the 2011 election, candidates were limited to $120,735 in spending. Fast spent the most, at $72,483 in expenditures. Liberal party candidate Madeleine Hardin spent $30,449, while the NDP’s David Alan Murray spent $17,031. Green candidate Daniel Bryan spent $769. Candidates who garner at least 10 per cent of a riding’s vote will get back 60 per cent of their campaign expenses. The expense limit for the adjacent MissionMatsqui-Fraser Canyon riding, which includes parts of north Abbotsford, is $216,008.

Asbestos threat grows with knock-downs WorkSafeBC steps up construction enforcement

Jeff NAGEL Black Press

An alarming number of contractors are fail-

vent a new epidemic of disease in the future. The agency conducted 210 inspections last year and found 43 per cent of hazardous ma-

terial surveys were inadequate, often failing to detect asbestos that further tests proved was present. “In many of these

cases they’ll produce a survey by a testing firm that shows no asbestos. We will then take samples ourselves and we’ll find asbestos in

that property,” said Al Johnson, WorkSafeBC vice-president of prevention services. Disreputable hazmat firms may not check

enough of a building, leaving out obvious sources of risk that can include drywall, floor tiles, insulation, cement pipes, linoleum and spray-on fireproofing. Workers exposed to airborne asbestos fibres released at construction sites can contract cancers and other asbestos-related diseases decades later. Asbestos has emerged as B.C.’s top workplace killer, with 581 related deaths in the past decade, 77 of them last year. Those deaths were mostly due to industrial exposure of trades people at high levels 20 to 40 years ago, but Johnson fears more gradual exposure in construction and demolition will be the new killer of the future. Contributing to the problem is the soaring price of land in Metro Vancouver that has fueled a boom in demolitions as hundreds of older houses are cleared away each year to make way for the dream homes of buyers. “The housing market is playing into this in a significant way because many old homes built prior to the mid’80s are just being purchased for the land and torn down,” Johnson said. Some contractors or home owners have no clue about the risks or the health and safety laws that apply, he said, while others are trying to dodge the cost of dealing with the danger responsibly. Five cities – Vancouver, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Saanich and Nanaimo – require demolition permit applicants to first provide hazardous material survey results. Renovations are more difficult for enforcement officers to spot and police. Johnson said WorkSafeBC is appealing to home owners to get a responsible contractor. More information can be found at WorkSafeBC’s asbestos information site hiddenkiller.ca.

Three local cadets complete glider training Three teens from the 861 Silverfox air cadet squadron in Abbotsford participated this summer in the six-week Glider Pilot Scholarship (GPS) program at Comox Cadet Flying Training Centre. Flight sergeants Natasha Cummings,

Arman Gill and Daniel Unger were among 45 cadets in the program, which began June 29. Participants spent more than 100 hours studying all aspects of navigation, theory of flight, meteorology, air law, glider handling and more, while learning how to fly a

Schweizer 2-33A, an intermediate training glider. “I love to fly and was super excited when I found out I was ac-

cepted to take the GPS course. I couldn’t be happier than when I’m up in the air,” said Cummings, 16. Gill said he took the

course to begin a path towards becoming a pilot. “In the process, I had hoped to make some friends and

learn from the experiences and opportunities the instructors have,” he said. More than 3,400 sea, army and air ca-

dets are participating in training activities across B.C. this summer. For more information, visit cadets.ca.

Canadians are coming to Abbotsford to talk about character. Character Abbotsford, a group committed to inspiring and strengthening community through the integration of shared values, is hosting the country’s first national discussion on the topic on Oct. 23 and 24 at Abbotsford Senior Secondary School. The two-day conference, entitled Character Canada, will include renowned keynote speakers Peter Legge, a bestselling author and CEO of Canada Wide Media Limited; Wab Kinew, associate vice-president for indigenous relations at the University of Winnipeg; and Dr. Avis Glaze, who is recognized as one of Canada’s outstanding educators. The conference will also feature national and international breakout presenters including Diane Nelson, director of instruction in the West Vancouver school district; Robert Foord, president of Kal Tires; and Siva Gopal Thaiyalan, senior curriculum specialist with the Singapore ministry of education. “Our hope is that this conference will act as the springboard for a national conversation on character,” says Vijay Manuel, who has chaired Character Abbotsford since its inception in 2011. “There will be something for everyone, whether you are coming from a business, community or education background.” To register for the conference and receive early-bird pricing, visit charactercanada.com or contact Vijay Manuel at Character.Canada@ gmail.com.

Clapp: Ledgeview more challenging

Vancouver Golf Tour Photo

Brad Clapp with Vancouver Open trophy in hand, stands with Vancouver Golf Tour commissioner Frank Mulholland following his win at Ledgeview golf course.

“Mentally challenging” is how this year’s Vancouver Open winner, Brad Clapp of Chilliwack, labelled the course at Ledgeview. Clapp took top honours and the $7,500 winner’s cheque after finishing 11-under through three rounds of tournament play, which was split between Pagoda Ridge Course in Langley for the opening round, and Abbotsford’s Ledgeview Golf & Country Club, for the last two days of competition. Clapp, who was familiar with both courses, said Ledgeview was the more taxing, with tougher, less-open greens

than Pagoda, and with tighter fairways where the trees are more encroaching, making driving the ball difficult on some holes. Despite those challenges, the Vancouver Open champion shot a 66 in both the second and final rounds played at Ledgeview, which is a par-70 course. For the opening round at Pagoda, a course with a par of 72, Clapp tallied a 69. “I shot three consistent rounds,” he said. “But I didn’t feel like I played my best golf.” Clapp competes on the Mackenzie TourPGA Tour Canada circuit. He played in the

ATB Financial Classic at Cochrane, Alta., which wrapped up Aug. 2, and then drove back for the Open’s start on Aug. 6. “I didn’t have a practice round … [and] I was not hitting great during the week.” The 28-year-old said his past experience with the courses helped considerably, adding the competition was good. On his tail were Surrey’s Ryan Williams and Richmond’s Riley Wheeldon. Both tied for second at 9-under. The Vancouver Open is a Vancouver Golf Tour event.For full tournament results go to vancouveropen.ca.

▸ Hyundai takes their entry-level Tucson crossover upscale for 2016 while increasing its price tag by a mere $400 despite a major gain in standard equipment.

DrivewayCanada.ca |

▸ Exceptional structural rigidity and absorbent underpinnings gave the Tucson a remarkably smooth, well-controlled ride over the worst of West Coast roads.

▸ Not only is the Tucson generously equipped; its cabin is well thought-out and beautifully executed.

▸ The all-new Tucson makes a strong visual statement with bold styling and a longer, wider stance.

It shells out 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque through the auspices of a six-speed autobox. Three drive modes – Eco, Normal, and Sport – enable drivers to tweak engine response, shift mapping, and steering resistance, to correspond with the mood of the day. I really didn’t find a need for Sport mode, largely enjoying the Normal setting most. After spending a day administering the turbocharged and non-turbocharged Tucson variants, I departed the Sunshine Coast with the view that Hyundai has raised the bar for refinement, comfort, and value in the compact crossover segment. Albeit, handling dynamics and sheer athleticism may still belong to the likes of Mazda’s CX5.

the best of them in the fiercely competitive compact crossover segment. While Hyundai’s soft-touch surfaces and intuitive architecture are praiseworthy, it’s the larger slice of ‘content’ pie which they serve that sets the Tucson apart from its contemporaries under competing nameplates. “More for less” has always been a Hyundai hallmark, and the Tucson adheres to the credo with its outstanding list of standard and near-standard features, including safety tech such as Blind Spot Detection with Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. Thoughtful touches include heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-level cargo floor, and a remarkably convenient Proximity power liftgate. The latter opening by merely sensing the key in proximity of the liftgate for three seconds. No longer can the Tucson be considered an entry-level crossover despite its modest across-the-board increase of roughly $400.

ABBOTSFORD 2016 BC SUMMER GAMES

Rise above. Reach beyond.

JULY 21-24

365 countdown celebrated at City Hall Thunderbird Plaza at City Hall was party central on July 21 with the 365 countdown event to the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games. The entertainment and food was non-stop. Several Abbotsford businesses stepped up to the plate to create an atmosphere of ‘the party has now begun’. Save-On-Foods provided free hotdogs, and with that wonderful aroma wafting through the air, the 400 attendees could not resist. The biggest question of the day was chicken or beef, and it kept the barbecue working non-stop. Water provided by SaveOn-Foods was appreciated during the warm evening. Chapman’s Ice Cream, Two-Bite Brownies and Sun Rype apple juice were offered at the next table. The Starbucks booth created quite a buzz with several Starbucks Managers pouring unlimited coffee for all. We appreciate the community spirit from these food suppliers and know they will be supporting us throughout the next year until the Games are completed in 2016.

Staples staff was in attendance, providing reusable drinking cups and straws for anyone who signed up as a volunteer for the Games. There are 500 cups in total, so if you register now as a volunteer you may still get one. The beautiful signage at the event was created by our Official Printer, Bourquin Printers. You will be seeing more of it over the next year, especially during the week of the Games. We thank Jake Sidhu of Bourquin Printers for coming on board as President’s Circle contributor. And of course, nothing works without a sound system so thanks to Sapphire Sound for manning the system so professionally. These community businesses truly did ‘Rise Above. Reach Beyond.’ with their commitment to be great corporate citizens. We thank each of them along with the amazing entertainers. They truly turned this evening into a special event.
