hen an artillery shell exploded next to the market stall where he was buying a cucumber, Hagop Khetcho knew he had to leave his city and perhaps his country.

Khetcho’s sister Lena Farra, who lives in Canada, had been encouraging him for months to leave Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, and take his family somewhere safer. The Middle Eastern nation, with a population of more than 20 million in 2010, has been enmeshed in a violent civil war since 2011 that has killed about a quarter of a million people and displaced more than 10 million. They both knew the violence wasn’t going to end soon. But this close call – the second in just a few weeks – made up Khetcho’s mind.

“The man who sells the cucumbers, he just said, ‘Take it! It’s free! Not a problem! Take it!,’ ” he recalled. “That’s when I said, ‘Just leave … OK, I’ll go.’ ” It took over a year from that moment in 2014, but the middle-aged pediatrician, his wife Lena Nahabetian, and their teenage son Souren ended up making it safely out of Syria, temporarily to Lebanon, and then to the Lower Mainland.

An Abbotsford man arrested earlier this summer has now been charged with 14 offences in relation to a series of pellet gun attacks in the community. The charges were sworn Monday in Abbotsford provincial court against Harpreet Vaid, 21. He has been charged with seven counts of assault with a weapon and seven counts of discharging a firearm with intent to wound in relation to incidents on July 26 and 27. Vaid was arrested in early August but couldn’t be named until charges were formally laid. At the time, Const. Ian MacDonald said the arrest was the result of “extensive media and social media coverage” and witness reports, including video footage that was taken during one of the incidents.

Submitted

An image taken from video footage shows a suspect in the back seat of a Chrysler Sebring aiming a pellet gun out an open window. A still photo obtained from the video was released by police at the time of Vaid’s arrest. It showed a suspect in the back seat of a Chrysler Sebring aiming a pellet gun out an open window. MacDonald said police are still investigating to determine who else was involved

and whether further charges will be laid. Police reported in late July that they were investigating a total of 23 drive-by pellet gun attacks that injured nine pedestrians. Vehicles and homes were also struck. Most of the assaults took place in the Clearbrook area, but some were reported as far east as Sumas Mountain and as far west as Mt. Lehman Road. Vaid is next slated to appear in Abbotsford provincial court on Oct. 1. According to the provincial court database, he has prior convictions for assault, possession of a controlled substance, assault causing bodily harm, and breaching his probation. MacDonald said Vaid is not connected to the Townline Hill conflict that has involved everything from incidents of mischief to fatal shootings.

Canada is ... a very wonderful place From A1

an Abbotsford-based Christian humanitarian aid group, helped them get here. ❑❑❑ The complicated war between Syria’s Bashar al-Assad regime and a variety of rebel groups, which began in 2011, has caused a global refugee crisis. Eleven million have fled from their homes, and four million have left the country. Many have sought asylum in Lebanon, a neighbouring country to the west. Canada, as a developed country far from the conflict with plenty of room, is seen as an attractive resettlement destination. Differing opinions about how the Canadian government should respond to these refugees’ needs have created a national debate. As unrest in Syria grew, the Khetcho family were living in constant fear. On one occasion, Souren and his mother spotted a sniper outside just as they were leaving their house, and they had to carefully sidle along a wall to keep from being seen. When Nahabetian’s father had a heart attack, and the family were visiting him in hospital, a bomb exploded just 40 metres away in the building’s courtyard. The fighting reached Khetcho’s clinic and the family feared for his life. Forced abductions were common, and his medical skills would make him a valuable target. In Canada, Farra used to call “just to make sure that they were still alive.” Living in Surrey and working as a cable network planner for Shaw, she began to reach out to local

groups that could help her sponsor a refugee application for her brother’s family. MCC’s refugee services branch acts as a sponsorship agreement holder. They guided Farra through the process, making sure all the proper information about Khetcho and his family was submitted to the right place. “Obviously, there was an urgency, because people like him would be targeted,” said Jennifer Mpungu, the Abbotsford-based refugee program coordinator for MCC BC. “So we got into an agreement where [Farra] took the commitment to bring them to Canada.” The family travelled from Aleppo to Taalabaya, a village in Lebanon’s central Zahleh district, in mid-2014. The journey could have been made in four hours by car on a clear highway – but with the frequent checkpoints and detours to avoid active fighting, it took them close to 20. They found a place to stay, grateful to be farther from the centre of the conflict. And they waited. A refugee application is complicated. Unlike many other routes of immigration to Canada, acceptance as a refugee confers permanent resident status without a prior visa period. There are countless forms to fill, questions to answer and tasks to complete. Farra was granted approval as a sponsor by January 2015, which left a final step in the process – whether Citizenship and Immigration Canada would accept, or deny, the Khetchos’ application. Finally, by mid-March, there was a call. They were ap-

proved. Having helped with many other refugee applications, Mpungu knew the processing of their claim was unusually quick. “That’s a record. I think God loves you,” she remarked to Khetcho. In late August of this year, they flew from Beirut, Lebanon’s capital, to Cairo, Egypt; then Toronto; then Vancouver. It was a 28-hour itinerary, which they found astounding after having spent nearly as long just making the 300-kilometre journey to Taalabaya. ❑❑❑ They’re now staying with Farra in her Surrey home. They share it with her husband and her two children – luckily, the house is big. Khetcho hopes to complete the certifications he’ll need to again practise pediatric medicine. Souren has started high school, and Nahabetian will volunteer at MCC’s Surrey thrift store to acclimate to the new culture. They’ll have time to return to their hobbies here. Hagop, an avid reader, loves historical fiction from celebrated French-Lebanese author Amin Maalouf. Souren, who played basketball for years in Syria, hopes to return to the sport at his new school – when he’s not working at his other favourite pastime, computer programming. Nahabetian, a talented cook, has been sharing her recipes with Farra’s family. “Canada is a safe place, a very wonderful place,” said Khetcho. “We hope that in this place, we will live better than in Syria. There is no war here … it’s a free country.”

Friday, September 18, 2015

Motorcycle crash victim named The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of an Abbotsford motorcyclist killed in a crash in Langley on Aug. 12. Douglas Dundas, 41, was killed when a farm truck pulled out in front of his motorcycle in Glen Valley. Around 4:50 p.m., Dundas was taking his 10-year-old son for a ride. They were travelling east along 88 Avenue when the bike hit a flat-bed truck making a left turn out of a farm driveway. The man and boy were ejected from the bike. The boy is recovering. Police said Dundas was not speeding and both were wearing helmets.

Ministry support for refugees A b b o t s f o rd - b a s e d Multicultural Ministries has announced an initiative to support Syrian refugees. Dr. David McLauren said the organization will offer the following support to refugees: – the promotion of refugee sponsorship and support for their churches/individuals; – information for Canadians about refugee policies and advocacy for fair legislation; – providing refugee claimants with legal support and help with settlement; and – encouragement for churches to provide migrant workers with spiritual and practical support. Multi-Cultural Ministries provides Christian resource and outreach to local missions and works with churches, mission agencies and relief development agencies. For more information, call 604-897-4224.

For the record

Man injured in road-rage incident

In a Sept. 9 article “Homeless shelter delayed,” it was indicated that city spokesperson Katherine Treloar said a contractor had commented that a building timeline was “not realistic.” This comment was recorded in an addendum of the city’s public request for proposal, and did not come from Treloar.

Taken to hospital with fractures and head trauma Vikki Hopes

A road rage incident in Abbotsford on Sunday evening resulted in a man being taken to hospital with serious injuries. Police were called at 7 p.m. that day for a reported hit-and-run at the intersection of Gladwin and Harris roads. When they arrived, they encountered an injured 38-year-old man and his family. The family – a couple and their teenage son – had been driving south on Riverside Street in a grey Chrysler sedan when the driver of a red or burgundy vehicle exchanged words or gestures with the passenger in the Chrysler. Both vehicles stopped on Harris Road just east of Gladwin Road. The driver of the red car approached the passenger side of the Chrysler and broke the window. He grabbed a cellphone from the victim’s hand, and, as the victim exited the vehicle, he was struck by the suspect’s car as it fled. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said it

Abbotsford News

appears the incident began when a line of cars was stopped, waiting for a train to cross. When the train cleared, the driver of the red vehicle allegedly began passing traffic on the right. MacDonald said the family in the Chrysler felt they had been “dangerously cut off,” and, as they proceeded on Riverside Street, the passenger began filming or taking pictures of the red car, leading to the other driver becoming enraged. “We do believe the suspect knew he was being (filmed or photographed),” MacDonald said. The victim was taken to hospital, where he is recovering from serious injuries, including fractures and head trauma. The suspect is described as a non-Caucasian man in his 30s, 5’ 10” tall with a medium build. Major crime detectives are looking to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident, and they are appealing for the other driver to come forward. Anyone with information is asked to contact the the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-8595225, send a text to 222973 (abbypd) or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

QUESTION

WebTalk

OF THE WEEK The Conservative government has pledged to accept 10,000 more Syrian and Iraqi refugees over four years. Is that enough?

Minor hockey fee hike We wrote letters to the City of Abbotsford hoping that they would change their mind. There was very little notice and there is now additional fees which need to be paid. I too hope that the city council will review this decision and chose to support children who participate in minor hockey. Chrystal Susut-Veltman

To answer, go to abbynews.com

Cut the subsidy to minor hockey, and what are you going to support with that money? Bertha Lowry

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Would you be in favour of a coalition government?

We are part of the Christian league as well and were disappointed by this change and the additional fees that we now need to pay. From what I understand, the league was given very little notice on the increased cost. I hope that this can be resolved. Rachel Ludwig

68 responded:

I am glad my tax dollars are now not being used to support a faith based minor hockey league. Michael Motut

YES: 28 % NO: 74 %

Much of the world on the sidelines The world’s focus is on the humanitarian crisis in Iraq and Syria. The eyes are open to see the plight of people seeking safety and freedom. Two decades ago the world watched the slaughter of citizens in Rwanda and how Canadians were involved in trying to protect them. Rwandans did not have the capability to march out of their country into an influential part of the world. Today, millions in Iraq and Syria fled to camps as homes were destroyed and victims of civil war were systematically slaughtered. Suddenly, critical mass provided the impetus for people to rise up

and walk in search of new beginnings, and our eyes are glued to our televisions to watch horrific scenes of how far the human spirit can motivate people. Our first approach should have been to neutralize the threat and help citizens reclaim their lives in their homeland. A few nations, including Canada, attempted to stabilize the area. Not only have we spent considerable money but we have “highways of heroes” who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Canada’s government also committed to taking 10,000 immigrants, which is 8,600 more than our neighbour, but who has spent considerable

Blasting trains Enough is enough! The train engine horn noise from the trains travelling along Highway 11 from Clayburn Road to downtown Abbotsford, between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m., has reached an excessive and consistent high level. The three long and one short blasts (the last one being the longest) are so loud I doubt ear plugs would be helpful. All this loud activity in this area begs a number of questions: When do the noise bylaws of Abbotsford come into play?

Why have the mayor and council ignored all of these train noise complaints? Why is it necessary to have all this rail activity during the quiet period of midnight to 6 a.m.? Why is it necessary for these train engineers to use such excessively long, continuous horn blasts? You would think that with the consideration of approving additional long trains through this area, that some attention would be given to the existing noise issue. Jim Barrett Abbotsford

AROUND THE WORLD in

money and lives trying to intervene. North Americans are active interventionists for stability and freedom. Much of the world sat on the sidelines during the displacement stage. The UN, again, was inept! Even other countries in that region kept their gates closed as much as possible. The media found it difficult to energize our emotions in the conflict stage because their own lives would be greatly imperiled. How much sooner the world might have intervened if their reporting had been equally available in the conflict stage. Now the path to Europe is opened and the spectator nations are brought into the crisis. When will the Great

Trek end? One year ago this one was not seen. One year from now, it is unknown how many millions more will flee. Unless more nations get involved in trying to fix the cruelties and uncivilized nature of the region, the path to Europe will become a highway. This Canadian is proud of the government for stepping up on both fronts: intervention and invitation. We do not have to compete, however, with those countries who failed to participate in the first half, and are only being forced to get involved in the second. Is the tome now that the other nations be called upon to assume their share? After all, they represent the majority. Jim Dueck

Giving Gala held at Mt. Lehman Winery Families whose children live with complex care needs will continue to receive the respite care they need, thanks to the generosity of those who attended the Matthew’s House Giving Gala on Sept. 12 at Mt. Lehman Winery. The event brought in more than $140,000, including cash donations, sponsorships and auction proceeds. “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of those who attended this event,” said Karyn Santiago, chief executive officer of Communitas Supportive Care Society, which operates Matthew’s House. “It showed us again how deeply commit-

Guests enjoy the surroundings at Mt. Lehman Winery on Sept. 12 during the Matthew’s House Giving Gala. ted this community is invested in Matthew’s House and how much they want to support families and children. We are truly grateful.” Matthew’s House, open since November 2013, is a respite facility located on the Dave Lede Campus of Care

on Marshall Road next to Abbotsford Regional Hospital. The fundraising dinner included acrobatic feats performed by the Underground Circus and live music by the Mennonite Jazz Committee. The MC was Fiona

Forbes, “ring master” was John Dawson and auctioneer was Kevin Gibson. Ian and Brenda Newton, whose daughter Kylie stays at Matthew’s House, paid tribute to Doug and Andrea Froese, parents to Matthew, after whom the home is named. Although Matthew passed away in 2010, the Froeses continued with their vision of a home for other parents. It costs about $1 million annually to operate Matthew’s House, with most of that coming from donors and fundraising events. To learn more about Matthew’s House, visit mattshouse.ca

YOU and the LAW ASSAULTED? YOU MAY HAVE A RIGHT TO COMPENSATION It’s bad enough if you’re the victim of an assault. But at least, if you’re seriously injured, you can sue for significant compensation. Of course, if you’re partly to blame for the altercation, that will cut into what you can collect from your assailant. A recent case dealt with such a situation, and shows how serious the health and financial fallout from a physical attack can be.

causing bodily harm. He was convicted and faced a long jail sentence.

Mark filed a civil lawsuit for compensation. His version of events had been accepted in the criminal trial – criminal trials require a higher standard of proof than civil trials. The civil court accepted and also believed Mark’s version of what happened. It decided Chuck was far and away the most to blame for Mark’s injuries. But Mark was also at fault a bit – he would have been safer to stay in the house and call the police, rather than Stanley T. Cope coming out unarmed.

Mark (all names changed), 39 at the time of trial, was renting a house on Chuck’s blueberry farm, where he lived with his common-law wife and growing family. He’d lived there for four years, but bad blood had developed between Mark and his landlord Chuck in the last couple of years.

Chuck and his family lived in another house on the blueberry farm, near Mark’s rented house. One evening, while drunk, Chuck drove over to Mark’s house carrying a one-metre long metal bar. Before driving over, he called Mark and threatened to hurt or kill him. When he arrived, he struck and broke a window of Mark’s rented house with the metal bar, ripping the curtain. He then parked his truck a bit further away but came back to the rented house, metal bar in hand. Mark, watching TV with his family at the time, felt he had to come out of the house to protect his family. He was unarmed and Chuck struck him on the head with the metal bar. The bar had about six inches of fresh blood on it afterwards. Mark fell down, but soon after was able to get up and pin Chuck down. The police were called and took Chuck away. Chuck was criminally charged with making death threats, assault with a weapon and assault

Due to the blow to his head, Mark suffered hearing problems such as tinnitus (ringing of the ears) and acusis (over-sensitive hearing), balance problems, fatigue and other health difficulties. His ability to hold a permanent job was gone, probably forever. Admittedly, Mark had a pretty checkered past, some criminal convictions, a very spotty work history and little education (he never even finished Grades 10 or 11, having dropped out of both grades). Factoring everything in, the court decided Mark should get compensation for his non-pecuniary damages (“pain and suffering”), loss of earning capacity going forward, future care costs and more, totalling about $350,000. Since he was himself partly to blame, this was reduced by 15%, so he got roughly $300,000. Written by Janice and George Mucalov, LL.B.s with contribution by STANLEY COPE.

Help ‘Make a Dent’

ABBY CENTRAL

Medical & Dental Clinic

Food drive helps Salvation Army Craftsman Collision, SaveOn-Foods and PriceSmart Foods are teaming up with the Salvation Army on Saturday, Sept. 19 to hold a food drive. The event runs from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Save-On-Foods in Parallel Marketplace at 1888 North Parallel Rd. Craftsman Collision pledges to match every item donated, which means that for every can donated by a participating customer, two cans of soup will make it onto a shelf at local Salvation Army Family Services units. The Salvation Army has

seen an increase in demand in every B.C. community this year, as more families have come to rely on their services to put food on the table. As well, many food banks throughout the province have had trouble stocking the shelves, with fewer businesses and individuals being able to part with food donations in these difficult economic times. In 2014, Craftsman Collision’s ‘“Make a Dent” campaign raised over $23,000. Upon entering participating locations, customers will re-

ceive a shopping list of ideal non-perishable food items to shop for and donate. The hope is that when the drive is complete, each location will have donated enough food to fill a Craftsman Collision courtesy car. The shopping list of suggested items includes: canned fruit, meat (ham, tuna, salmon), macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, canned vegetables, rice, Hamburger Helper, cereal, diapers, pasta, instant noodles, canned baked beans, pasta/tomato sauce and beans.

Abbotsford News

Friday, September 18, 2015

This crop revival is one to savour I’m certain, while seeking solace in the shade from this summer’s relentless sun, the most common phrase heard was “Ah, nuthin’ like a cold beer.” Truth be told, most commercial beers taste pretty much the same, be it Bud or Blue, Coors or Canadian. And that, I’m sure, is what has spurred the phenomenal growth of the craft beer industry. I recall back in the mid-’90s frequenting Spinnaker’s, a delightful pub on Victoria’s inner harbour. At the insistence of a companion, I tried some of the pub’s own brew. Each had a truly unique and interesting flavour, and in further visits to the picturesque location, I tried others. Some were downright good, others not so to my unsophisticated palate. At any rate, Spinnaker’s, at least in British Columbia, was the birthplace of brew pubs and the craft beer industry. Many others followed, including Swan’s in Victoria, Granville Island and Mission Springs just across the Fraser from Abbotsford. Unlike the canned beer most of us consume, craft beer is not really meant to be quaffed cold and quickly, but savoured, often at room temperature. It requires “a taste for it,” but once tried they are, like a fine and savoury wine, a delight – which is today in great demand. Thus it is that from a handful of craft breweries in the 1990s, they now number well over 100. And therein lies a problem. For these breweries to develop distinct and often unique flavours they require a key ingredient – hops, and not just any hop but specific ones that have, in various concentrations and flavour, a substance called lupulin. For more than half a century Sumas Prairie and the farmlands of Chilliwack were covered with hundreds of acres of hop yards. However, as the major

breweries began to concentrate their production in central locations, and closed down virtually all of them in B.C., the demand for those hops diminished to the point that the last commercial hop farm in the Valley ceased production in 1995, its massive lines of poles and cables giving way to other agricultural products or, in the case of many areas in Chilliwack, residential and commercial development. Then along came the craft brewing industry and suddenly hop farming is seeing a revival. The first one in production on Sumas Prairie began this spring on Cole Road; its three varieties of hops grown specifically for craft brewing. Taking a walk through the dangling vines, Diane Stewart broke open a few hop cones, allowing me to breathe in the essence of each one’s lupulin, a yellowy-green oil that gives craft beer its unique flavor. To my unsophisticated nose, the minute quantity of this pollen-like substance smelled like pine, with hints of citrus. The Stewarts’ dairy farm has been in the family for more than three generations, but it saw its last dairy cow 15 years ago. A few years ago a decision was made to either do something with it or sell it – a decision the family was reluctant to make. Dwayne and wife Diane pondered options, rejecting ideas until hop growing crossed their minds. Researching the economics and demand, they decided to go ahead. And when I say “go ahead,” they went full tilt boogie. Not only did they create and plant a 10-acre hop yard, they have just installed a $500,000 hop-picking

ing machine. The vines are actually clipped by hand in the field. The machine, which looks reminiscent to a printing press, sits in a building, separating the hop cones from the vines. Built in Germany, it is the first new unit to ever be brought into Canada, and can handle the production of 120 acres of hops in the four-week harvest season. And that has Dwayne, Diane and family already developing a second hop yard on Vye Road with, I expect, other farmers looking to take advantage in the rebirth of hop growing. The brew industry, too, is so thrilled with the Stewart entrepreneurship that it is staging Abbotsford’s first BrewFest on Oct. 3,with 17 craft beer makers, bands and food booths laid out on a grassy field next to the hop vines.

What’s needed for the workforce of the future? Six billion dollars. That’s the estimated cost in lost GDP every year in British Columbia as a result of a skills gap or skills mismatches. It’s a cost that every local economy wants to avoid. It means there’s a disconnect between the education and skills employers need and those employees and graduates have. The fast pace of change means communities, businesses and workers have to be flexible in response. No one wants to be caught flat-footed in the face of disruptive innovation or transformative technologies. It’s far better to identify the growth sectors, the jobs of the future and the transferrable skills to help workers adapt. Yet, as Yogi Berra said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.” Today, Abbotsford is planning for the future. It has a diversified economy, a diverse local workforce and a postsecondary institution right within its community. These are valuable ingredients in a recipe for economic success. But, what skills are needed and what are the jobs of the future? Demand for jobs is highest in occupations that rely on skills in science, technology, engineering and/ or math (STEM). But, soft skills are also in high demand. In British Columbia, 73% of employers were concerned

about a lack of skills in critical thinking, oral communication, literacy and teamwork. Post-secondary institutions are one of the driving forces of the knowledge and know-how economy in Canada. Educational institutions with strong long-term relationships with employers are best at equipping students for employment, and the most successful institutions are acutely aware of the needs of the local economies around them. The future planning exercises at the City of Abbotsford and at the University of the Fraser Valley offer valuable chances to connect and collaborate. The strength of a shared vision and ongoing relationships between business and educators should make a positive difference to Abbotsford’s economic and workforce success. Sarah Anson-Cartwright will be a panelist at the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce’s luncheon event with the University of the Fraser Valley on September 23. To attend please call the Chamber office at 604-859-9651 or go to www.abbotsfordchamber.com. Sarah Anson-Cartwright is a Director for the Canadian Chamber of Commerce specializing in Skills Policy.

Are You Protected? According to a recent study of 350 organizations in 11 countries by the Poneman institute, the average per capita cost paid for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information increased 6 percent, jumping from $145 in 2014 to $154 in 2015. So how does Canada fair? Because we are new to the study, we only have the 2015 figures to compare, but it appears that we do better when it comes to IT active data security. Hat’s off to our IT industry. The bad news is, when it comes to breaches due to human error, we’re the highest amongst the 11 countries. So the answer is yes, Canada has record breaches too but we can remedy some of these breaches by elevating asset management into a IT security sphere of influence. US companies have been doing that for years but few do it internally.  I have yet to encounter any US multinational with operations in Canada that doesn’t ship their retired assets to the US to perform ITAD (IT Asset Disposition) services. Why go through that logistical nightmare? It’s because a properly executed ITAD operation will bring to light many hidden risks that can be remedied as part of a greater IT Asset Management plan. The information gleaned from the operation can identify equipment that can be re- allocated, provide a shorter commissioning time on new equipment, a higher return on the decommissioned equipment while providing third party impartiality and indemnification. Also, ITAD providers deliver these benefits often at a lower overall cost to the organization than doing it internally. All good reasons, but the most important reason is that until recently, there were no full service specialized ITAD providers in Western Canada. That has changed.

New BC Societies Act: Webinar announcement In May 2015, the new BC Societies Act was passed into law, with the accompanying regulations expected to be released this fall. This change will impact 27,000 non-profit societies in British Columbia. Half of these represent all of BC’s charitable organizations, and the other half are all of BC’s non-profit societies. The BC Centre for Social Enterprise is offering online webinars to assist these groups to navigate the changes. There are two dates to choose from: November 7th at 10:00am, and November 10th at 1:30pm. The sessions are offered at $50 +GST. Organizations are invited to visit the Centre’s webpage for more information, and to register. www.centreforsocialenterprise. com/bc-societies-act/ The Centre’s Director, Stacey Corriveau, said, “If organizations are filing annual reports with Victoria as a BC Society, then they will be impacted. What few groups recognize is that they need to take active steps to transition. This will tend to include amendments to their constitution, and in many cases, their bylaws as well. We are so fortunate to have charity lawyer Richard Bridge share his knowledge of the changes

and new requirements with these groups.” The non-profit societies will need to file their documentation online with the BC Ministry of Finance, which serves as the registrar of these groups in the province. Within the anticipated regulations will be a ‘coming into force date’. Groups will be required to actively transition to the new Act within two years of this date, with most elements of the new Act applying on the coming into force date. Lawyer and webinar presenter Richard Bridge observes, “The old Act is reasonably good, but the new Act fills holes and provides comprehensive and well-drafted guidance on all significant governance issues and requirements. It will be an essential resource for all directors and senior staff.” The 90-minute webinar will cover highlights of the new Act, advice for identification of specific areas that could affect the participant’s organization, and items needed to move through the transition process. Takeaway informational handouts and a transition checklist will help keep groups organized.

Panthers, Hurricanes looking to go deep Abbotsford and Robert Bateman high school football teams look ahead to 2015 Abbotsford Senior Secondary Panthers

By Ben Lypka Abbotsford News

Robert Bateman Secondary Timberwolves The Wolves are hoping that a first round exit in 2014 leads to one big step forward in 2015. Bateman finished with a record of two wins and four losses in AA Varsity play in 2014, good for fourth place in the competitive Eastern Conference. This year marks just the sixth year in the history of the football program at Bateman, but they’ve never missed the playoffs. Co-head coach Dan Village expects another playoff appearance this year, with the threat to make some noise in the postseason. “Things are going pretty good for us so far,� he said. “We have 33 on our roster – the most we’ve ever had for seniors. I think we’re going to be better than last year and are hoping to make top three in our division and make a run in the playoffs.� Village said one of the strengths of the team this year are its returning players. He pointed to key members such as quarterback Keegan Vicklund, linebacker/ running back Dawson Davis, linebacker Devin Sidhu, receiver Tyson Gibson and receiver Keenan Adams-Barausse as leaders for 2015. Vicklund, Gibson and Sidhu are all Grade 12s and Village said they’re motivated to end their high school careers with a bang. According to Village, making an impact in the playoffs is a goal for the team.

Bateman respond to a running play in a match last year. The squad is focused on extending its playoff run in 2015. “We want to finish top three in our division and if we can make it out of the first couple of rounds in the playoffs that would be a good goal for us,� he said. “We’ve made playoffs every year but we want to win the first couple of games.� The Timberwolves spend the rest of the month playing exhibition games, having already tangled with Abbotsford Senior Secondary on Sept. 11. They take on

Handsworth this weekend, play Carson Graham next weekend and close out the exhibition run against Holy Cross. Village said the last two exhibition games should give an indication of where his team is at. Bateman kicks off the regular season at home on Oct. 9 against Chilliwack’s GW Graham. Bateman’s Junior Varsity team also returns to the gridiron, opening the season by hosting Mission on Sept. 23.

The Panthers were rolling in the regular season last year, winning the AA Varsity’s Eastern division and compiling a record of five wins and one loss. They beat the Frank Hurt Hornets 35-0 in round one of the AA playoffs but then ran into a strong Vernon team and lost 36-6 in Kamloops to dash their championship dreams. Abbotsford head coach Jay Fujimura said this year is the culmination of four years of hard work for his seniors. “I think they’ve worked really hard in the off-season and they’ve come together and got a little bit better every year,� he said. “This group has been together for four years now, I think all the players have developed into a solid unit.� At the forefront of the team’s offence is wide receiver Chase Claypool, who verbally committed to Notre Dame in July. Fujimura said the team employs a spread offence and tries to get Claypool involved as much as possible. “With him in the offense, we try to get the ball to him as much as we can,� he said. But Claypool isn’t the only weapon in the Panthers arsenal, as Fujimura pointed to running back Richard Tshimpaka, quarterback John Madigan and a strong offensive line. “We have two seniors – Jesse Clifford and Harjot Lalli – on the line and I think it’s one of the better offensive lines we’ve ever Continued on A26

An Abbotford Panthers play evades a defender. The Panthers are looking for a playoff push in 2015.

The next stop for Abbotsford minor hockey product and now NHL’er Jake Virtanen is Prince George. Virtanen and the Vancouver Canucks head to Northern BC from Sept. 18 to 20 for the first on-ice training since the club was eliminated by the Calgary Flames last spring. It’s back to the grind for most Canucks, but for Virtanen it’s a chance to impress the coaching staff and earn a spot on the roster. He had several memorable moments at the Young Stars Classic event in Penticton from Sept. 11 to 14. Virtanen caused a stir during the Canucks game against the Oilers on Sept. 11 by hitting Edmonton’s prized first round pick Connor McDavid, and then closed the tournament by scoring the winning goal on a breakaway against Calgary on Sept. 14. Virtanen is expected to battle for a spot on the Canucks opening day roster. He made his professional debut last season, suiting up in eight games for the Utica Comets of the AHL and recording one point and six penalty minutes. Hitmen in the WHL last season. The Canucks open the exhibition schedule on Sept. 21 when they host San Jose.

Levale earns rugby silver in Samoa Abbotsford grad wins at Youth Commonwealth Games, looks ahead to UVic By Ben Lypka Abbotsford News

It may not have been a home field ad-

vantage, but for 2015 Abbotsford Secondary school grad Nakisa Levale it was close

enough. Levale travelled to Samoa, the country where her father’s

side of the family hails from, and suited up for the Team Canada rugby sevens

It’s back to school time...

and we’re giving parents a break!

team at the Youth Commonwealth Games, which ended on Sept. 10. She managed to earn a silver with the team. It all kicked off on Sept. 8, as Canada blanked Tonga 38-0 and then beat the Cook Islands 24-12. Levale contributed on Sept. 9, scoring a try in Canada’s 45-0 win over host country Samoa. The team suffered its first defeat of the tournament later that day, falling 12-10 to Australia. But they bounced back with a 17-10 victory of Fiji to finish the pool stage with a record of four wins and one loss. Canada then moved on to the gold medal game, a re-match against Australia

on Sept. 11. but fell short 36-5. Levale and Canada earned the silver medal in the loss. Levale was one of only two players from B.C. on the team. L eva l e honed her skills in the sport at Abbotsford Secondary, helping lead the Panthers to two provincial AA championships during her three seasons with the team. She earned athlete of the month at Abbotsford Secondary last year and also was named to The Province’s “Head of the Class” list of promising young athletes for 2015. Last January she was part of the Team BC U18 girls rugby team’s first ever international tourna-

ment win at the Las Vegas Invitational Sevens event. She caught the eye of the University of Victoria, and Levale now competes with the Vikes women’s rugby team in the fly half position. Levale and the Vikes open the season at home against Lethbridge on Sep. 25, host Calgary on Sept. 27, play UBC on Oct. 4 and conclude the season against Alberta on Oct. 18. The playoffs and CIS championships occur in late October and early November. Levale’s goal is to to play for the national women’s team one day.

Athletes medal in PanAm water polo Martel, Aikema and Utas excel in Jamaica By Ben Lypka Abbotsford News

A trio of Abbotsford water polo stars are back from Jamaica with some hardware. Athletes Eric Martel, Emily Aikema and Brianna Utas all medalled at the Youth Pan American water polo championships in Jamaica, which wrapped up on Sept. 12. Martel won bronze on the Team Canada boys team and potted 14 goals over the tournament that ran for eight days. The boys team lost in the semi-final to Brazil but then bounced back to defeat Puerto Rico 14-10 to finish third. The win also earns the team a spot at the world championships next year. Aikema and Utas, both playing on the Team Canada girls team, earned silver at the tournament, and Aikema scored 12 goals. Utas manned the defensive end of the pool and helped shut down the opposition. The girls team lost 25-6 to the United States early in the tournament and then the two teams eventually squared off again in the final. Canada put up much more of a fight in the second match, pulling to within one goal with one minute to go, but the Americans scored late to win 8-6. The girls earned silver medals in the loss and also a spot at the world championships next year. The trio of athletes hope to secure a spot on the world championships teams, but in the

meantime return to local pools with the Fraser Valley Water Polo Club. Martel hits the water with the Valley U19 men’s team coached by 2008 Olympian Kevin Mitchell as they seek a national championship in May. Utas joins Aikema on the Valley U19, after winning a national championship with the Valley U16 team last year. Justin Mitchell, named most valuable coach at the national championships last year, returns as head coach for 2015-16. For more information on the club, visit fraservalleywaterpolo.com.

The UFV Cascades men’s and women’s golf teams are on the outside looking in after the first Pacwest golf tournament in Kelowna on Saturday and Sunday. The men’s team, three-time defending provincial champions, finished third and combined for a two-day total of 597. They trailed both the Camosun Chargers (580) and the host UBCO Heat (592) at the event. The women’s team, two-time defending provincial champions, finished second with a total of 345. The Heat women won the event shooting 329. Individually, Maple Ridge native and 2014 CCAA All-Canadian Connor O’Dell shot 74 and 72 (146) to place seventh overall and ranked as the top Cascade. Other UFV male scores were: Connor McLellan (t-11th, 150), Cody Stewart (12th, 151), Zach Olson (t-13th, 152) and Kaleb Fisher (t-19th, 154). Hannah Dirksen (172) had the top Cascade female score and ranked third among all women. Jennifer Kell (173) finished fifth and Ciara Melhus (200) placed eighth. After the opening weekend, the men’s team ranks third nationally and the women’s sits in fourth in the country. Both teams return to the links this weekend for the second Pacwest tournament at Surrey’s Northview Golf and Country Club hosted by the Kwantlen Eagles. The next tournament sees golfers travel to Camosun College on Sept. 26. Later this fall, UFV hosts the final Pacwest tournament from Oct. 3 to 4 and then the PING CCAA Gold National Championships from Oct. 13 to 16. Both events occur at the Chilliwack Golf Club.

okay, there’s brown and then there’s very brown! However, the recent rains have been helping bring back the green. Ironically, many weed varieties, particularly clover, plantain and crabgrass, seem to thrive in drought conditions, and they are giving our lawns quite a weedy appearance. Moss is still doing well in shady areas, in spite of the recent heat. So there’s some work to do. Lawns are ground covers that not only add to the appearance and value of our homes, but they are also environmentally important, sequestering carbon, providing oxygen and helping control pollution. When they look bad, our entire landscape looks bad, so let’s take advantage of this cooler last leg of our growing season and get them into shape. First, the weeds! They compete with our existing grasses for water and food, they look unsightly, and they spread like wildfire. Most of them are annuals, so consistent weekly mowing with the blades set as low as possible is the first line of defence. If you make a point of mowing in opposite directions each week, this will also help prevent thatch. Most weeds, with the exception of velvet grass, couch grass, clover and horsetails, can be controlled by simply digging them out as they appear, or spot treating them with environmentally-friendly ‘EcoSense Weed B Gon.’ Overseeding, however, is

Gardening one of the best ways to help choke out weeds, and now is the best time of the year to do just that. For long-term success with your lawn, you really must aerate, which means removing plugs of soil, either by hand or machine, to improve

Use a mix of seeds that has perennial rye grasses, preferably the new award-winning stoloniferous blend called ‘Natural Knit’ at the rate of five lbs. per 1,000 square feet. Amazingly, it is actually aggressive against weeds. Even though these grasses are

drainage. Winter and spring, rains beat down on the soil surface, making it hard and subsequently difficult for roots to breathe and penetrate deeper into the soil. Aeration should be followed by applying a 3/8 inch layer of coarse or washed sand on the lawn area. The sand will work its way into those aeration holes to keep them open, thus improving the drainage. Once you have created this ‘battlefield’ effect on your lawn, you can easily fix it by overseeding. The cool night temperatures and morning dew really help the seeds germinate and take hold.

fast germinators (about 7-10 days at this time of year), they still need daily watering until the seed has become rooted. Finally, the fertilizer. Lawn grasses need nitrogen to stay green and grow well. Avoid so-called ‘winterizing’ fertilizers because they contain the wrong fertilizer formulation for the West Coast. Slowrelease nitrogen fertilizers are the best because they maintain the green without creating a lot of excess growth which you, of course, get to mow. Once you have done these steps, apply some Dolopril lime at a rate of 10kg per 200 square metres.

The difference between separation and divorce order that brings your marriage to an end in a legal sense, and allows the former spouses to marry someone else. Without a divorce you are still legally married, even though you may have been separated for a long time. You still have legal rights and obligations as spouses. The separation date is used Karen to determine what family property and debts exist to be divided between the spouses. A separation does not change your legal rights or obligations. Because divorce is a legal matter, it changes your financial legal rights and

Legal-Ease

I am frequently asked what the difference is between separation and divorce. They are two very different things. Separation is the end of your relationship as a couple. It is an emotional state of being. Only you and your spouse can determine if your relationship has come to an end, or what your separation date is. In considering when, or if, you are separated, some of the things to think about are: when one spouse moved into a separate part of the house, or out of the house altogether. When you stopped being intimate, or socializing together, or going on holidays together. Unlike separation, divorce is defined legally, by the court. A divorce is a court

obligations. Once you are divorced, you no longer have the right to inherit a portion of your spouse’s estate, or to be their executor. If your spouse still wants you to inherit, or be their executor, they must complete a new will. There are time limitations that begin once you MCNEILLY are divorced. Because there are legal consequences of divorce, you should always consult a lawyer to ensure you are protected. Once a separation occurs, legal rights and responsibilities toward children come into effect. Many of the rights, such as the right to have a relationship

with both parents, and to receive support from both parents, are rights of the children, therefore, they exist whether a parent is separated or divorced. When an application for a divorce order is received by the court, one of the few things the judge checks is to ensure that the correct amount of child support is being paid. Separation and divorce can be complicated. To ensure that you and your children are protected, consult a family lawyer. Karen is an associate lawyer with RDM Lawyers LLP in Abbotsford. She practices in the area of family law. Questions or comments about this article can be sent to legalease@abbynews.com.

$40,000 for apprenticeship The Abbotsford school district will receive $40,000 from the Industry Training Authority (ITA) towards the Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) program for the 2015/16 school year. The funds will support the district in placing SSA students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 with local employers to attain practical experience. Students will “earn while they learn” and gain credit towards their high school diploma and the apprenticeship portion of their trades training. “Employers in the Abbotsford community continue to step up and provide our youth with the necessary work-based training opportunities to learn the skills of the trade,” said Patricia Tebbutt, district principal of the program. She said students acquire the necessary mentorship to grow their skills, while employers benefit by claiming tax benefits and acquiring employees that

fit their workplace. Last year’s SSA registration numbers were the highest they have been since the 2009 pre-recession years. In 2014-15, 1,048 stu-

dents registered in SSA programs across B.C., representing an increase of more than 10 per cent over 2013-14. ITA partners with the Ministry of Education

to deliver four youth programs focused on awareness building of skilled trades’ careers, practical work experience and apprenticeship technical training.

four kilometres, and they’re encouraged to bring along a few friends – human and canine alike. The walk-a-thon will be followed by a barbecue. This year was a particularly busy one for Critter Care, which took in more than a dozen bear cubs from across B.C. Nine were released back to the wild in remote areas last June, but several more will remain through the winter to fatten up in the safety of Critter Care’s large enclosures. “This has been an absolutely crazy year, very busy with so many animals,” said Critter Care founder Gail Martin. Critter Care specializes in the treatment, care and release of sick, injured and orphaned B.C. mammals, including skunks, porcupines, beavers, raccoons, coyote, deer, otter, bobcats, lynx, bears, opossums and squirrels. Critter Care relies on donations from the public and some community grants to operate. Food and specialized formula is expensive and fundraisers such as the walk-a-thon go a long way to help cover those costs, said Martin. Register for the walk online at crittercarewildlife.org/walkathon or phone Cathy at 604-202-5697. Early bird registration fee is $10 until Sept. 25. After that, it is $15, with children 12 and under paying $5. Pledges and registration starts at 10:30 a.m. The walk will begin at the south end of the park.

Campground, by the river at Lillooet, I was ready for a chilled Riesling from the nearby Fort Berens winery. The air conditioning worked over time as we tucked into a warm salad – well, it was by the time it was served! Respect for fellow campers, prompted a click of the AC off switch after lights out. Day Three: Lillooet to Vernon features open highway and the chance to open up the throttle. It’s easy to push the needle to 100 klicks but frankly the higher speed take away from the visual delights displayed on both sides of the road. And as I slowed I put myself in the driver’s seat of the car behind, pulling to the side every time I spotted three cars in my mirror. The Cedar Falls Campground is a picturesque and tranquil woodland spot by Silver Star Mountain. The howling coyotes were a nice reminder that this is wilderness. A further reminder holding your iPhone in outstretched hand to get a signal from the camp Wi-Fi! We also had mobile Wi-Fi aboard, which worked well on the road. Day Four was a slow drive through the Okanagan Valley to Kaleden, taking in The Hatch Wines and Mission Hill Estate Winery in West Kelowna and enjoying a barrel tasting at Van Westen Vineyards in Naramata.

Donned the plastic gloves and got on with it. It all went smoothly, so to speak. Keremeos opened the door to the Similkameen Valley and tempted us with the last of the summer fruit. It soon gave way to more rugged terrain leading to the generously equipped Princeton Municipal Campground.

WILEY Doris “Pat” June 25, 1913 ~ Sept. 13, 2015

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our loving mother at 102 years of age at Maplewood House. Mum was born in Sydney, Australia and immigrated to Canada in 1977 after Dad had passed to be close to her children. She leaves behind her son, Warren (Jeanette), daughter Kerry, grandsons Jeff (Miranda), Mark in Australia, Doug (Iza) in Poland, Cameron (Lola) and three great grandchildren, Ruby, Elliott and Oscar, as well as the many friends she met in Canada. She is predeceased by her son-in-law Don Wilson. Mum had a wonderful, active and fulfilling life, was quickwitted and travelled extensively after the age of 65, her last trip to Australia was at age 95. She also bowled, loved golfing, and enjoyed her volunteer work with the MSA Hospital Auxiliary as a member since 1977. A Celebration of Mum’s Life will be held on November 21, 2015 at a location to be published at a later date.

The NDP, under the late Jack Layton, surged into the official opposition’s chair with 103 seats – the largest total in the party’s history. Meanwhile, the Liberal Party tumbled from 77 seats (in 2008) to just 34, and leader Michael Ignatieff left his post after the election. The Bloc Quebecois and Gilles Duceppe – who has returned to his position for 2015 – crashed from 49 seats won in 2008 to just four, losing its official party status.
