DELIVERING THE NEWS SINCE 1908

Happy Canada Day

‘Everybody thought it was a tiny, little fire’ Blaze, smoke and toxic soot destroyed everything inside Mission’s Canadian Tire It’s been almost five months since a suspicious fire destroyed a large portion of the Mission Canadian Tire. During that time, work has continued to rebuild the popular retail store which is now scheduled to reopen sometime in August. Mission Canadian Tire dealer Jim Oliver and his wife Kristi Oliver say it has been a long journey for them and their staff, but they can finally see an end in sight. “We had no idea it would be this extent when we first came in. We thought it was only half the store, but the damage was much worse than originally suspected,” explained Jim. The fire, which has been classified as arson – occurred on Jan. 30, 2019 at about 6 p.m. The store was evacuated, and Mission Fire Rescue Service was called in to extinguish the blaze. While the damage was quite extensive, it soon became worse. Later that night, at about 2 a.m., an explosion took place inside the store, setting off approximately 185 sprinklers and causing even more damage. Oliver said he can’t talk about the details of the fires, but the amount of devastation and damage they left behind was in the millions of dollars. “The burning down-filled jackets, plastics and nylon created a dangerous toxic soot. The fire, smoke and soot, combined with the water, spread everywhere, destroying all the store’s inventory. None of the inventory was re-sellable.” The soot also tainted the fixtures, the drywall, almost everything it touched. “Everybody thought it was a tiny, little

fire because there were no flames coming out of the building.” However, Oliver said it was one of the biggest fires Canadian Tire has ever experienced. After a few days, Oliver, along with general manager Frank Ehrhardt, corporate operations officer Lisa Prieur and district sales manager T.K Roach were allowed to enter the building to survey the destruction. “They didn’t let us into the store for about four days after the fire because the toxic air was too strong,” said Prieur. When they did enter, they had to wear protective clothing and respirators. “It was just heartbreaking. There was water pouring in, there was water, soot and smoke damage everywhere. All the products were just destroyed and things had fallen down. It was pretty humbling to go through and just see the total destruction of everything inside the store,” she said. Finally seeing the damage brought home the fact that the result could have been so much worse. Oliver said lives could easily have been lost. “Kaitlyn Hilliard and Evelyn Johnston were the two managers on duty and if it wasn’t for them, we could have lost lives. There was one gentleman who was in the washroom. They checked and got him out. All the staff and the customers got out safe.” He credited Hilliard and Johnston for preventing what could have been a tragedy. Now that the extent of the damage was known, the Olivers turned their attention to their staff and how soon they could reopen. Continued on A3

The fire in the Mission Canadian Tire completely destroyed the building, which had to be stripped down to just the four concrete walls and some metal studs. All of the inventory was destroyed as well, due to smoke fire and water damage, as well as the toxic soot that spread everywhere inside the building. Five months later, the newly renovated store is expected to open in August. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Fire caused millions of dollars in damages

Inventory is already arriving as store is scheduled to reopen sometime in August Continued from A1 Fortunately, insurance covered their staff as well as the damages, allowing the Olivers to focus on the rebuild. By the time everything was cleaned out, they were down to the four concrete walls and some metal studs. Even the roof had to be replaced. “We are replacing, basically, 99.99 per cent of the store, other than the structure itself,” said Oliver. Ehrhardt and Oliver worked for 18-straight hours to put together a new floor plan for the store. ‘‘We said if we were going to do this, and tear apart the whole store, we want to open with a wow factor,” said Oliver. Working with just the shell of the building, they decided to incorporate new fixtures, new colours, new technology, new everything. As a result, they are going to be opening a brand new store. Prieur said the new design will feature a row of cashiers and one queue lane for customers to help speed up service. The aisles are being changed to make it more customer friendly and the entrance will also be different. Other changes include the auto ser-

They also opened up the waiting area and added LED lighting to brighten the store. “Any opportunity we had to make the store function better or work better for our staff and customers, we took.” While the soft opening isn’t taking place until August, the first inventory truck has already arrived, and staff are getting ready to stock some of the shelves. “Mission is going to be pretty happy when they see this store. I know they are anxious and chomping at the bit to get in here, but we are not going to open the store until its ready. It’s going to be nice, its going to be pristine,” said Ehrhardt.

The newly renovated Canadian Tire store is beginning to take shape with an all new look, new colours, lighting, fixtures and more. The plan is to reopen the Mission location sometime in August. KEVIN MILLS PHOTO

‘I feel free’ says mother of murder victim

After a long struggle, Rosemarie Surakka has her daughter’s belongings returned by RCMP Kevin Mills Mission Record

Rosemarie and Mark Surakka, the mother and step-father of Mission murder victim Lisa Dudley, finally got their daughter’s personal belongings back from the RCMP. On Friday (June 21) afternoon, the Surakkas came out of the Abbotsford courthouse with the belongings, that they have waited years to receive. However they didn’t get all the belongings. According to Rosemarie, one cell phone is still missing from the list of items that were to be returned. She also didn’t receive the currency removed from the scene, but was told it was policy not to hand over cash and that a cheque for the amount would be mailed to her from the Receiver General. “I have Lisa’s belongings in boxes, down-

Mark and Rosemarie Surakka had their daughter’s belongings returned to them by the RCMP. KEVIN MILLS PHOTO stairs and I’m going to leave them in the boxes right now. I’ve looked at them all in the courthouse when the police brought them in to make sure it was all there,” said Rosemarie. The Surakkas were originally hoping to get the belongings the previous Sunday from the Mission RCMP Detachment. They had a court order stating the items were to be returned in 30 days

– June 16 was the 31st day according to the order. However, Mission’s evidence room is not open on Sunday and the couple were told the belongings had been moved to the Surrey RCMP detachment for pick up. The Surakkas said they would not travel to Surrey. “I was hoping that this would have been finished last Sunday, you know, I had

thought that would have been my freedom day. And then all this other stuff happened. They (RCMP) were disagreeing with me and telling me they were trying to accommodate me by taking the stuff out of the Mission detachment and taking it all the way over to Surrey and I live in Harrison. “I thought maybe because its the last hurdle it’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be the hardest,” said Rosemarie. However, on Friday she received the belongings and is now breathing a sigh of relief. “It was really heart wrenching to touch the cell phones. I mean, we used to talk on the phone for hours sometimes, so it was really hard to do. It’s all downstairs in boxes, in two boxes and I’m just going to leave it here for a few days and try

and process everything that’s happened and clear my head. In September 2008, Lisa Dudley and her partner Guthrie McKay were shot in their Mission home. McKay died at the scene, but Dudley, who was 37 at the time, stayed alive for four days before finally being discovered by

a neighbour. She was airlifted to hospital, but died later that day. The Mission officer investigating a shots-fired call at the couple’s home left the scene after being there for approximately 10 minutes without going inside, and did not follow up the next day. Four years later, RCMP Cpl. Mike

White was reprimanded and docked one day’s pay following a review by the adjudication board. Four men were eventually convicted in the pair’s death: Jack Woodruff, Justin MacKinnon, Bruce Main and Thomas Holden. After 11 years, Rosemarie said she feels like

it is 99.9 per cent over. She still wants to find the missing cell phone and says there are some other avenues she may want to pursue, but it’s time to take a breath. “I felt today like those guys threw a saddle on my back 11 years ago and have been riding me ever since, and today I just bucked them off. I feel free.”

OPINION

Published & printed by Black Press Ltd. at 33047 First Avenue, Mission V2V 1G2

Are you ready to roll? It’s been nearly six years since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced he would rather see cannabis legalized instead of just decriminalized. Back then he was just plain old Justin, on the campaign trail trying to garner votes and reinvigorate the federal Liberal party. Two years later, the Liberals cruised back to power on that promise and others. The Liberals defaulted on their promise to reform the electoral system, and you have to wonder if the promise of legal recreational cannabis is going to be substantially complete before the next federal election, this fall. It’s not entirely the Liberals’ fault that we’ve yet to see a thriving cannabis industry. But even though they had three years, provincial and local governments didn’t really get started on their own legislation until the last minute. Few cannabis retailers have been able to open across Canada as most of the applications from hopeful private retail-

webt@lk Cannabis stores will come to Mission

ers are still waiting for the dual approval they need from the province and their municipal government. It’s not that getting a licence to sell cannabis should be easy. It shouldn’t, and there are countless obstacles and social issues that need to be dealt with. But with three years warning, there is little excuse for provincial and local governments not to have been better prepared to be ready for legalization. After all, cannabis has been effectively legal for a long time. It’s just that all the money generated by the industry was going into the pockets of criminals instead of generating taxes. Governments should have had frameworks, laws and bylaws ready to go by the time legalization legislation dropped. By now private operators should be adding to local and provincial economies, and driving the black market farther underground. It’s almost as if governments don’t want the cannabis tax revenue after all. – Black Press Media

It’s taken far too long it would be good to have at least four accessible by everyone and have competitive pricing this is a no-brainer the business of cannabis could be extremely profitable not to mention employment opportunities. Dean Langan Just think of the tax revenues lost by waiting so long. Opportunity lost. Charlie Pace This isn’t rocket science treat it like liquor and save a ton of wasted time debating over zoning. How far is the liquor store from Heritage high school. Jamie Vulf Pirie Why is there not one on every corner or for sale at 7-11, etc. As long as it’s not next door to a school, make it as accessible as cigarettes, for legal aged people. Kirk Chorm

It’s not too late to save what remains of B.C.’s old-growth Jens Wieting

Guest Shot Earlier this month, hundreds of British Columbians visited MLA offices across the province demanding protection of endangered old-growth forests and improved forest management, during a day of action organized by Sierra Club BC. In response, David Elstone, the executive director of the Truck Loggers Association, accused our organization of not acknowledging the economic importance of old-growth logging and claimed that clearcutting what little remains is sustainable (B.C. has most sustainably managed forests in the world, June 6). He was joined by Black Press Media columnist Tom Fletcher repeating outdated claims

about the climate benefit of replacing oldgrowth forests with young trees. Fletcher ignores modern science showing that clearcutting ancient trees results in the rapid loss of huge amounts of carbon accumulated over hundreds of years (Urban environmental “emergency” routine wearing thin, June 9). Sierra Club BC is concerned about the economic, social and ecological impact of clearcutting endangered old-growth forests. True sustainability is leaving similar values and conditions for future generations. But B.C.’s ancient giants have been reduced to a fraction of their former extent, replaced by young, uniform forests cut in short rotation forestry, never allowed to grow old again. Elstone claims B.C.’s forest management is the most sustainable in the world. However, satellite images show that on Vancouver Island, we are losing what little forest remains intact three times faster than Brazil’s primary rainforest in the Amazon is being destroyed. Massive amounts of carbon have been added to the atmosphere as a result and only a tiny

fraction remains stored in wood products. One study estimates the loss of carbon when comparing old-growth forest to a 60-year-old stand at more than 300 tonnes of carbon per hectare (more than 1,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide). The current old-growth logging rate on Vancouver Island alone is about 10,000 hectares a year or more than 30 soccer fields a day. The inescapable conclusion is that old-growth logging there alone contributes millions of tonnes annually to provincial carbon dioxide emissions. Elstone highlights that in recent years, close to half of the volume cut on Vancouver Island came from old-growth. Today, the Island’s productive old-growth (forests with relatively big trees, not bonsai-sized trees that government and industry like to include to inflate numbers) has been reduced to about 20 per cent of its former extent. Only six per cent of the original productive old-growth of the Island is protected. Elstone is in denial about old-growth logging

coming to an end, one way or the other. This should be a huge concern for everyone with a job in the woods. We will not leave anything close to what we found for future generations. Plants and animal species that depend on old-growth will vanish. Climate impacts will worsen without the shield of intact ancient forests to reduce droughts, floods and fires. Degraded landscapes will impact the quality of drinking water and allow fewer options for a diverse economy that includes tourism and recreation. Elstone claims 55 per cent of remaining old-growth forests on Vancouver Island is protected. This is highly misleading. As the total amount of old-growth trees declines because of logging, of course the percentage that is protected goes up. B.C. could destroy 99 per cent of all old-growth, set aside one per cent, and report 100 per cent is protected. Is this the approach to conservation that British Columbians want? Continued on A8

From district to city

Mission takes first step toward reclassification Kevin Mills Mission Record

Council has taken the first step to reclassify Mission from a district to a city. During last week’s meeting, council approved a request for $8,500 in order to gauge the public’s opinion on the change. In his report to council, Michael Boronowski, manager of civic engagement and corporate initiatives suggested they “go to the public to see whether they do support reclassifying as a city.” Rather than hold a costly referendum, the report recommends using the alternative approval process. As Boronowski explained, the process can run for between 32 and 80 days. Notice of the reclassification is circulated to resident electors and non-resident property owners. If the district receives objections or opposing responses from more than 10 per cent of electors, then the idea does not move forward. “If under 10 per cent oppose, we can petition government to reclassify,” he said.

If the district reclassifies, it is estimated by staff that an additional, one-time preliminary cost of $190,000 –that could be split over the 2020 and 2021 fiscal years – would be needed for the successful implementation of reclassification including rebranding efforts. If a reclassification request is submitted and approved by the provincial government, the District of Mission would legally be known as the City of Mission. Coun. Carol Hamilton asked if the name could be changed to Mission City, to reflect the area’s history. Boronowski explained that the government “will not entertain” the Mission City name. However, even though the legal classification would be City of Mission, Boronowski said they could still “brand ourselves as Mission City” just not on legal documents. “I kind of like the tagline Mission City it has energy and it reflects, certainly, the historical aspect, but we are going to have to wait and see how the public feels,” said Mayor Pam Alexis.

What’s in a name? Mission was first incorporated in 1892, then in 1922 the District of Mission was partitioned by the creation of the Village of Mission, which later became the Village of Mission City (1950). In 1958 the Village became the first in BC to change to Town status, becoming the Town of Mission City. Finally, following a referendum in 1969 the Corporation of the District of Mission and the Town of Mission City were amalgamated as the District of Mission. The Report: According to the staff report, city classification is seen as an asset in that it indicates a more progressive municipality and can aid in attracting businesses and developing partnerships with groups and individuals who aren’t familiar with B.C.’s municipal classifications and regional districts. Reclassification also provides the immediate benefits of reducing confusion between the Fraser Valley Regional District, Mission Public School District, and the District of Mission.

The longer the wait, the harder the change

Forests were looked after by Indigenous peoples for millennia Continued from A6 His sustainability argument is particularly troubling considering B.C.’s old-growth forests were looked after by Indigenous peoples for millennia. Indigenous communities made use of forests in hundreds of different ways without destroying their ecological integrity. Instead, B.C. is exporting about 3 million cubic metres of old-growth per year as raw logs, accepting massive envi-

ronmental losses for minimal economic benefits. The good news is it is not too late to save what remains of B.C.’s old-growth, restore second-growth forests and transition to truly sustainable forest management. We can still chose to save the web of life that depends on intact forests and move to carefully planned selective logging. This would deliver “negative emissions� and wood products at the same time, capturing more carbon in our forests

than is lost as a result of harvesting. Creating more jobs with less ecosystem damage per cubic metre of wood deserves our full support. The longer we wait, the harder this change will be. The first step is for industry and government to stop the denial reflected in Elstone and Fletcher’s opinion pieces. – Jens Wieting is the senior forest and climate campaigner with Sierra Club BC

Flipping out at the Mission skatepark Scooter rider Jayden Riddell is turning heads on two wheels Ben Lypka Abbotsford News

Over at the Mission Skatepark there seems to be a bit of new movement afoot,

and this growing trend runs on two wheels. Dozens of local youths are hitting the ramp in the emerging sport of freestyle

scootering. Participants use stunt scooters to perform freestyle tricks similar to those used in skateboarding and

BMXing. One of the superstars on the local scene is Heritage Park Middle School student Jayden Riddell.

The 13-year-old picked up a scooter around two years ago, and has been developing his skills on the Mission Skatepark

ever since. He’s grown an Instagram following of over 1,000 followers who check out his antics on two wheels, and has also competed in freestyle

events all over the Lower Mainland. “I used to bike but when my buddy got a scooter I wanted to do it too,” he said. “I just found it more fun

than anything else. It feels like my sport and it was pretty easy for me to progress.” Riddell began with Continued on A11

Riddell helps younger riders to learn tricks Continued from A10 some of the more basic moves like spins, tail whips and 180s, but has not advanced to doing more extreme tricks like a complete backflip. His mother Megan Riddell has seen his growth in the sport firsthand, and said it’s been exciting to see her son learn new skills and also compete against some of the best in B.C. But she admitted she was a little surprised when he first asked her for a scooter. “At first I thought – isn’t this for little kids,” she said, laughing. “So we got him one for Christmas and he started doing tricks and then he began showing me videos of bigger tricks – now he’s better than some of those people. If he has his mind set on something he will do it.” Megan said there are some dangers in the sport, with the risk of concussion and other injuries. She said Jayden originally practiced the backflip move by landing on a mattress. “It can be dangerous but I trust him that he won’t do anything that he’s not comfortable doing,” she said. His skills were most recently recognized at a competition in March, which saw Jayden place fourth overall in the advanced rider category. But despite some of the risks on the scooter, Riddell said he faced a lot of adversity from other users at the park. He said that many skateboarders don’t enjoy sharing the park with scooter riders, and it has caused some tension at the Mission Skatepark. “There’s always been a bit of bullying towards scooter riders,” he said. “Skateboarders tend to look down on us a bit, and sometimes don’t give us much respect.” Riddell said his first

five months sharing the park with skateboarders was a bit of struggle, but said once they see he can do backflips and other impressive moves that they began treating him with more respect. He said he wants to get rid of the negativity and make sure everyone can enjoy the park. “I got through the name-calling and just began progressing as fast as I could,” he

said. “It was my passion to keep doing it, but it’s just a respect thing for everyone. Little scoot riders can sometimes get in the way, but we should all be able to get along.” Riddell said he wants to try and make scootering fun for everyone, and has become a mentor of sorts to younger riders. “If I see someone struggling with a trick I remember what it

was like for me learning,” he said. “I like to try and help them.” He said he wants to continue in the sport, and sees a future in it. The inclusion of freestyle scootering in the X Games has been a controversial topic within the extreme sports community since the X Games began in 1995. The sport has never been part of the event, but that may change. Both skateboarding

and BMX events are a part of the Games at the moment, and inline skating was included in the past. It’s unclear if scootering will be added, but if the popularity grows enough it could happen. Riddell said he’d like to become a sponsored

athlete eventually and also compete in the International Scooter Association’s big event known as the ISA World Championship Final. That event runs every July in Barcelona, and North American riders qualify for the event by excelling

at one of six regional events. The closest one for Riddell is the Air Rec Centre in Maple Ridge, but there are also regional events in Ontario, Calif., Arizona, Mich., and Pennsylvania. “I want to be like the people I look up to,” he said.

Until then, he will continue perfecting skills at the Mission Skatepark, which he hits up nearly every day. For more on Riddell, visit his Instagram page – @ jayden_riddell_10 or his YouTube page by searching his name.

Wednesday, July 17 – Koko Soul Koko Soul is a superb dance band that is sure to have people up out of their lawn chairs and dancing in the early evening. They have an incredible repertoire that includes favourites from all styles, including recent Pop 7 Top 40, Motown, Classic Rock, Reggae, Bossa Nova and lots more. They are, in a word, a ‘groovy’ band.

Presented by:

June Friday, June 28 – Crescent Sky A vocally driven four-part band with a blend of intricate harmonies, modern melodies and storytelling lyrics. Crescent Sky had an amazing year with an Abbotsford Arts Council Emerging Artist Award, a spot on CBC Spotlight program and numerous appearances around the Lower Mainland. There is no better way to end the month of June than with this very talented foursome.

July Wednesday, July 3 – Willy Blizzard Back by popular demand, Willy Blizzard kicks off July with some of their famous original tunes. A touring band from Vancouver, this acoustic trio plays original music in the folk/roots genre featuring beautiful vocal harmonies, guitar, banjo and standup bass. Friday, July 5 – Innerwild Always a crowd favourite, Innerwild returns to the Twilight Stage with their plethora of musical styles and entertaining musicians. Guitars, bass, drums, saxophone and amazing vocals. This group of five local musicians will have everyone on their feet this summer. Wednesday, July 10 –Illiteratty As the top banana, Earl Peach leads this apple-pie perfect ensemble through a grape bunch of original tunes. Don’t miss the mix of all those three and four-part harmonies or the blend of all those instruments (bass, guitar, mandolin, violin, keyboards and percussion), and treat yourself to a windfall of songs you’ll wonder at when you are not laughing. Friday, July 12 – Koalala This energetic group of musicians have long and varied resumes and we are glad they got together as they will have the park rocking to their unique sound. Koalala has been seen at various musical haunts in and around the Fraser Valley and we are pleased to have them at the Twilight Concerts this year.

Friday, July 19 – Niki Werner Band Hailing from the Fraser Valley, the Nikki Werner Band is a fourtime B.C. Country music award nominee and a favorite at the Twilight concerts. The group’s repertoire covers the standards of Emmy Lou Harris and Don Williams to the sounds of Faith Hill and Martina McBride. Their musicianship is indisputable, and their concerts are a high energy, feel good experience. Wednesday, July 24 – Leaf Rapids Mission Folk Music Festival Preview Night! Mining their collective family histories has been a labour of love for Kari and Devin Latimer (formerly of Nathan). All those stories come together on Citizen Alien, the latest album from Winnipeg folk duo Leaf Rapids. The project is a labour of love for this husband and wife duo. Through their own family’s stories, they created a new world from the old, delving into the intimate truths told by voices from decades long gone. Wednesday, July 31 – Andy Hillhouse Andy is the founder of Celtic funk band Mad Pudding and over the past 30 years he has had a varied career as a musician, an academic, and now festival director for the Harrison Festival of the Arts. His musical passion is traditional Irish and Canadian and at this Twilight Concert he will perform songs from his first solo CD, “Passages”.

August Friday, August 2 – DerbyTown Kicking off August with a little country!! DerbyTown is a Langley based alternative-country band performing a range of covers and original music. The band formed in 2018 around the idea of featuring the pedal steel guitar, two lead vocalists and plenty of harmony singing. The band is heavily influenced by alt-country stalwarts such as Blue Rodeo, Son Volt and Ray LaMontagne but also delves into some of the roots of country. Wednesday. August 7 – Revolutionary Lullabies Meshe Mooette is the band leader of the “Revolutionary Lullabies”, a group whose mission is to get you smiling, although they’ll settle for foot-stomping, sing-along-ing and head bopping to their fun tunes! A delightful mix of bossa, rock, folk, and pop grooves. Their topics will amuse with everything from taking a bath to finding love again. Friday, August 9 – West, My Friend This band calls Victoria home, but they spend a lot of time touring with their unique sound and wonderful stage presence. The band features pure and thrillingly elastic vocals with catchy arrangements of bass, guitar, mandolin and accordion that draw from jazz, classical, folk and pop influences. Wednesday, August 14 – J Gogo & Sons John Gogo, along with his daughters, Jena and Jeri, make their debut at Fraser River Heritage Park as J. Gogo & Sons. This trio will be performing selections from each of John’s five albums as well as songs written by Jena and Jeri. John has had a varied career performing at many festivals and halls throughout British Columbia with his music celebrating the western logger and coal miner. Jena and Jeri travel from Toronto to join him onstage for this very special evening.

Friday, June 28, 2019 A19

Friday, August 16 – Tiller’s Folly Tiller’s Folly is the Pacific Northwest’s critically acclaimed, internationally travelled acoustic power trio, planted at the forefront of a bold new movement in progressive roots music. A highly regarded Canadian Celtic group-turned-historians, this awardwinning ensemble has shifted to what might be more aptly termed Acoustic Roots Music. Wednesday, August 21 – Ken McCoy Band The local country gentleman Ken McCoy heads up his aptly named Ken McCoy Band. An absolute favourite at the Twilight Concerts this band delivers hard driving, good old-fashioned music and fun. The show is jammed with style and energy and has garnered a huge following in the Fraser Valley. Friday, August 23 – Roads Unknown Local singer-songwriters Jennie Bice, Tony O’Hara, and Michael Jantzen are accompanied by Solomon Janzen to form a unique blend of country, blues, and folk that will please your palette. Each member is an accomplished musician with a following for their individual endeavours. They draw audiences in with their thoughtful lyrics, sublime harmonies and infectious rhythm. With stick-in-your-head melodies and a playful stage presence, they create a musical experience you won’t forget. Wednesday, August 28 - Gary Comeau and the VooDoo Allstars Fans can not get enough of this band and it remains the most requested music of the season. This group of seasoned musicians bring the New Orleans rockin’ roots ‘n blues to the stage and win the audience over every time. They take the rhythm of the Maritime Acadian music, season it up with great showmanship and present a great evening of entertainment! Friday, August 30 – Big City Soul Saving the highest energy for last, Big City Soul hits the stage to bid farewell to the Summer of 2019! This group always plays a high energy mix of new music and classic songs that will have the audiences dancing. There ain’t no party like a Big City party!

Even a well mannered pet can be mischievous at times, they aren’t self sufficient and free time turns into trouble. Don’t leave them unattended for extended lengths without being supervised. Make sure your fencing is without any larger openings that smaller pets can escape from. When traveling with your pet in a car keep windows up enough that they cannot jump out or get stuck. Also be aware when you are opening your vehicle doors, most pets try and follow you or get anxious. Having ID on your pet is crucial! While a durable tag and collar is useful, microchipping is is strongly recommended. In storms or during firework celebrations, anything with loud noises that are stressful for pets, keep them close. Pets are known to flee when scared. If you have a new pet or new surroundings it’ll take time for them to get used to the area without running away. For the first few weeks take them out on leash to explore and feel comfortable and meet the neighbours. If neighbours are able to recognize your pet it helps if your they do manage to get away. Register your pet’s permanent ID Registration guarantees that your pet can be traced by all participating veterinarians and animal sheltering agencies province wide. Remember, permanent ID has little value unless it is registered. Keep your contact information up-to-date Have you moved or changed your phone number? Contact your veterinarian with your new information so they can update their records. Licensing your pet https://www.mission.ca/ go online at the District Of Mission www.mission.ca to update the record on file or to get more information on licensing.

‘Secret of being happy is doing things for other people’ Long-time Mission volunteer Marilynne Davis will be helping out at the Canada Day festivities Canada Day is approaching fast and it takes a large amount of volunteers to make the Mission celebration a reality. Visitors to Fraser

River Heritage Park on Monday can enjoy a variety of free activities, music, entertainment and more. While you are there, stop by the information booth and say hello to Marilynne Davis. Davis is one of the

many volunteers that help make this event such a great success. However, her involvement in the Mission community goes back farther and involves more than just Canada Day. Davis came to Mis-

sion, from West Vancouver in 1973 and has lived here for the past 46 years. “I just love the community. I love the atmosphere of the community. I love the people of Mission,” she said.

But most of all, she loves Fraser River Heritage Park, calling it “the love of my life.” “The first time I ever came to this park was Canada Day, many, many years ago and I watched them do the citizenship and that really impressed me, how this community would come together in this fantastic venue … I thought I have to be involved. I have to come back here. That’s basically how I got involved with the park.” Davis became an active member of the Heritage Park Board for years, until the organization was shut down. Davis said it’s easy to love the park. “It’s the beauty of the park to start with and of course I’ve seen it open up over the years, when we had the orchard all up there and the rabbits everywhere – there were rabbits everywhere here years ago – now we see maybe one or two. “And the beauty of the layout of the land and also it’s very, very important to know that we are on Sto:lo land,” she said. While her devotion to the park is clear, Davis also helps out with a variety of organizations. She has volunteered with Mission Community

Fraser River Heritage Park will be buzzing with activity and Canadian Pride on Monday as the Canada Day festivities take place. BOB FRIESEN FILE PHOTO Services for the past 17 years, runs a tuck shop – a store that sells toiletries, diapers and small food items like peanut butter and jam – at Chartwell Carrington House retirement residence and for the Mission Games Society. The former medical receptionist retired in 2002, after helping to run clinics with Dr. Baillie. Never one to sit and do nothing, Davis began to plan for life after work. She decided to re-invent herself because she realized she had to do something. “I’ve learned the importance of help-

ing others during many, many years of working in the medical field and it just seemed most natural for me to volunteer. My time was mine now. “I have a core value. I would say that one of the things I keep learning is that the secret of being happy is doing things for other people.” While she has a long volunteer history at the park and in the community, Monday will only be her fourth year as a Canada day volunteer. The first year she sold souvenirs but since then she has run the information booth. Davis enjoys

helping people, handing out Canadian Flag tattoos to the children, who she says get so excited at the event. Davis said volunteering is a win-win. “It’s worthwhile. It’s a good feeling that you get that you are doing something for other people, that you’re not just centred on yourself. It’s more of a sharing thing and people share back with you.” While she may begin to slow down a tiny bit in the coming years, she doesn’t plan to stop. “At the age of 77, I hope to be able to volunteer for many more years to come.” 8617984

Dental Implants This couple has something to smile about. They used to wear dentures, which caused discomfort, an inability to eat many foods and a lack of confidence when it came to smiling and talking.

Now they enjoy the freedom of dental implants, which are as close to natural teeth as you can get. People who lose a tooth want to replace it with something permanent, says Dr. Lui, instead of something they have to remove. “Once you give someone new, permanent teeth, you can see their personality shine through again.”

SeaSonal allergieS “Hay fever” Woohoo! It’s spring again and the sun is shining bright. What a great time to go hiking. Unfortunately, this is also the time when the trees are shedding big clouds of pollen. But, why should that matter? According to Asthma Canada, about one in five Canadians suffers from a respiratory allergy, like seasonal allergies, which gets worse when exposed to pollen. So, wHat are SeaSonal allergieS? Sometimes called “hay fever”, these are a group of conditions that can cause sneezing, a stuffy or runny nose, and itchy eyes. It usually begins from childhood and stays lifelong for many people. Do you feel your allergy iS getting worSe over tHe yearS? Weather has been very unpredictable over the years, mainly due to climate change. This has a big impact on pollen production. This year, British Columbia has had a slow start with pollen production due to the extended cold weather. This led several trees to release their pollen at the same time, instead of one after another, leading to more pollen production in a short period of time. wHat are tHe SymptomS of SeaSonal allergieS? 1. Stuffy nose, runny nose or sneezing a lot 2. Itchy or red eyes 3. Sore throat 4. Trouble sleeping, which can lead to feeling tired during the day wHy Do Some people get it anD not otHerS? Some people are genetically predisposed to getting seasonal allergies. Their immune system acts as if the substance is harmful to the body, causing the symptoms. DoeS anytHing elSe cauSe SeaSonal allergieS? Along with pollen, many people react with grasses, weeds, and mold spores as well. can you get teSteD for SeaSonal allergieS? Usually, your doctor will ask you about your symptoms and do a physical exam. He might order an allergy skin test which helps figure out what you are allergic to. How can you manage your SeaSonal allergieS? There are many things in the market which are effective, such as: 1. Nasal rinses: These are effective and usually tried first for mild to moderate allergies. It works by rinsing the nose helps get rid of pollen from the nose 2. Steroid nasal sprays: These are extremely effective, especially for stuffy nose. They can now be bought without a prescription at your local pharmacy. They work by reducing inflammation in the nose.

Friday, June 28, 2019 A29

It starts working quickly, but it may take several weeks before you get the full effect. 3. Antihistamine eye drops: Available over the counter as well and is effective especially for itchy eyes. 4. Decongestants: Used for the stuffy nose as well, but are not the first line anymore. They can cause dependence, especially if used more than 3 days in a row. It should also be avoided in people with high blood pressure. 5. Allergy shots: Once the root cause of allergy is found after doing an allergy skin test, some people choose to get the allergy shots as well. Although very effective, these have to be given weekly or monthly by an allergy specialist and usually takes months to see the effects. can you prevent tHe SymptomS of SeaSon allergy? We all know that prevention is the best medicine. You should always try to avoid the things you are allergic to such as pollen, grasses, etc. It is a best practice to: 1. Keep the car and house windows closed and using air conditioning instead. 2. Take a shower before bed to rinse pollen off your hair and skin. 3. Wear a dust mask if you need to be outside. It is always good to talk to your doctor about the benefits and downsides of the different treatment modalities and deciding which is the right one for you. – DR. TARUN SONI References:

Functional fitness training: what it is and how it benefits seniors As we age, everyday tasks become more physically challenging. Activities such as getting up from a seated position, putting on a coat, dusting furniture and putting away groceries become difficult for many people. Functional fitness training helps seniors continue to perform these types of tasks without experiencing excessive strain.

fitness training will help seniors remain independent for as long as possible. Plus, unlike exercise machines and weight training, it’s a low-intensity form of exercise and shouldn’t cause strain or injury.

Mission Secondary students worked with Kindergarten kids from Mission Central Elementary on a monster project. SUBMITTED PHOTO

A monster project After seeing a post on social media about a textiles class that made “monster” stuffies for a kindergarten class, Mission Secondary teacher Kathy Baker decided to try something collaborative with one of the feeder schools. She approached a few colleagues, and a project emerged. Jean Greenshields, Kindergarten teacher at Mission Central, had her kindergarten students draw pictures of monsters. The pictures were then sent to Mission Secondary where the following things were done with the images: 1. Kelly Hennessy’s Creative Writing 10 students wrote age appropriate stories about the monsters. The stories all have morals embedded in them. 2. Becky Meyer’s

Drama 10 students did play builds with the stories, and performed them. 3. Helen Yannacopoulos’ Textiles 10 students all made stuffies for the kids, of their monsters. 4. Kathy Baker’s Senior Ceramics and Sculpture students made monster plates. 5. Amber Smulders’ Foods classes made monster cookies for the kids. 6. A presentation of everything created for the kindergarten students took place and the little kids took home stuffies, cookies, plates, and watched the plays being performed. “We believe that making connections in the community, and cross curricular enrichment is valuable because in the real world, projects involve use of multiple skills
