More harm than good

CEREMONY THAT’S THE SPIRIT

Mobile needle truck could beat city bylaw CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com

bbotsford’s drug users plan to march on city hall today with coffins and a ‘die-in’ to draw attention to the consequences of an Abbotsford bylaw that advocates say does more harm than good.

“If you want to spread disease, you would not want to have a needle exchange. It’s mean-spirited and odd. It defies logic.” – Ann Livingston VANDU

The city’s ‘harm reduction-free’ bylaw runs counter to accepted public health policies and puts the general community at risk, said Ann Livingston with the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU). “If you want to spread disease, you would not want to have a needle exchange. It’s mean-spirited and odd. It defies logic,” she said. see HARM, page A4

bbotsford police rushed to the 33700 block of Hillcrest Avenue Friday afternoon after receiving reports of an unconscious man on the sidewalk. APD members immediately performd CPR on the man, who was later determined to be a 44-year-old Abbotsford resident. Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead on scene. Toxicology and coroner reports are expected, but the man suffered from health problems, and police have found nothing suspicious regarding his death.

E

nvironmentalists and politicians spoke out against Metro Vancouver District’s proposals for waste management in the region at a public hearing held in Abbotsford on Saturday. Metro Vancouver wants to build at least one incinerator to burn waste and create energy.

Its other options are to ship the region’s waste to an incinerator built by Covanta at Gold River on Vancouver lsland, or to continue trucking the waste to landfills in Cache Creek and Burn’s Bog in Delta. However, ZeroWasteBC promoters want cities to reduce garbage first, through more intense recycling, composting organic materials and pressuring manufacturers to use less packaging. Local resident Linda Martens, who attended the rally, agreed.

anada Road SafetyWeek got off to rough start after police arrested a man minutes after he allegedly used a Ford F-150 pickup truck to run down a woman as she walked along McCallum Road in Abbotsford Friday night. Raymond Brault, 33, is facing charges of assault with a weapon, aggravated assault and dangerous driving causing bodily harm after officers took him into custody along Vedder Way in Abbotsford shortly after 8 p.m. Friday. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the bizarre turn of events stems from an altercation between the 30-year-old female victim and her attacker. “This woman is fortunate to receive the injuries she suffered, and nothing more serious,” MacDonald said. The victim still remains hospitalized with non lifethreatening injuries including lacerations, bruises and a broken kneecap, he said. Timing was everything in this case, MacDonald said, noting that police received a 911 call regarding the incident at 8:08 p.m., were onscene within two minutes and by 8:12 p.m. had Brault in custody. Investigators are still putting all the pieces together, he said. “ We t h i n k t h e re w a s some sort of dispute between the two parties.” MacDonald said the victim was walking with her boyfriend when the F-150 Brault was driving plowed into her. MacDonald said Brault has a long history with law enforcement, with previous charges and almost three dozen police interactions since 2005. The idea of using a vehicle to finish off an argument is, unfortunately, not a new one, he added.

hile a hearty spring sun beamed down outside, festive tables were set for breakfast with fat red peonies to help mark the 57th birthday of Barrowtown Elementary. The building buzzed with parents, grandparents, students and future students at the four-room school on Abbotsford’s rural east side. Outgoing principal Dave Moorthy and parent Dave Martens flipped sausages and pancakes at the grill, and inside, the Grade 6 and 7 students played out a skit on the school’s history. A big part of that story is its place in the community, set amidst the big farms on Sumas Prairie. “This is normal for us,” said Martens about the full house and activity. “We

Romanowski, who takes over as principal this spring. The school has 91 students from kindergarten to Grade 7, and they’ll be looking at ways to offer more services to the neighbourhood, she said.

“We’re looking at things such as before and after school care for the families. We want to make a good school for everyone to attend,” said Romanowski, who grew up in the Village of Sumas before it joined Abbotsford. She went on to become a teacher in the district and is now an administrator. “There’s been a lot of changes [in education and the community] but it’s nice to see some things stay the same,” she said. One constant at Barrowtown is its connection to the community. Many of the local farming families have two or three generations of children who attended the school, and it is a focal point for the neighbourhood. Barrowtown opened at Interprovincial and No. 2 with one classroom in 1952, but when more than 50 students showed up that first September, some had to be sent to another school. see BARROWTOWN, page A5

A4 ❘ NEWS ❘ TUESDAY, MAY 18, 2010 THE TIMES HARM, from page A1 The rally today also marks World Hepatitis Day, May 19. Abbotsford has the third highest rate of Hepatitis C in British Columbia, and B.C.’s rate of Hep C is double the national rate, she said. “Hepatitis C in spread by blood-to-blood contact only, and is completely preventable,” said Livingstone. The city’s bylaw is “irresponsible” by preventing harm reduction measures to address the public health issue, she said. The 2003 bylaw bans needle exchanges, injection sites, freestanding methadone clinics and mobile clinics from setting up shop in the city. The mayor at the time, Mary Reeves, said such services would attract drugs users from other communities and dealers looking for clients. Spurred on by-then Abbotsford MP Randy White, Reeves and the councillors, which included current

Protest planned for 2 p.m. mayor George Peary, unanimously declared the city “unequivocally opposed” to harm reduction strategies, even though it went counter to policies held by the Fraser Health Authority and the Lower Mainland Municipal Association.

“As a society we can’t allow this to happen.” – George Peary as a councillor

Peary said at the time he didn’t buy the idea that harm reduction gets users closer to treatment. “What they’re doing is extending the harm, the pathological behavior. As a society we can’t allow this to happen,” he said. Even though needle exchanges are banned from the city, last August Fra-

ser Health authorized Barry Shantz of the B.C./Yukon Association of Drug War Survivors to distribute needles in Abbotsford. “Each month the [B.C.] Centre for Disease Control delivers thousands of needles to a location, I pick them up and put the boxes in my van, and then cruise the streets and back alleys [to deliver clean needles to the city’s drug users],” said Shantz. The bylaw makes no sense from a public health perspective, he said. Shantz added that people around the world look to Vancouver to see how it delivers harm reduction options in its Downtown Eastside, and they’d be surprised to learn “that just one hour away there is a community that promotes harm.”

Teachers were paid $2,000 a year back then, and there was no telephone because the school district didn’t want to pay for long distance phone calls. Former Mayor George Ferguson and his first wife Betty were always at the Christmas concerts and other events, as their 11 children attended Barrowtown. Local farmers Dick and Betty Vink were there on Friday, with some of the 55 members of their clan, including three generations of Vinks who have attended Barrowtown. “I just love this school. The students and the values the teachers promote are just incredible,” said Charlene Vermeer, nee Vink. Now a grandmother, she recalls biking to school or taking shortcuts across the fields with her siblings – soon her grandsons will be at Barrowtown.

APD hits Road Safety Week running

ith 22 motor vehicle-related deaths in Abbotsford since January 2008, police will be cracking down on speeders and distracted drivers for National Road Safety Week, May 18 to 24.

“Those 22 fatalities are 22 tragedies for families.” – Const. Ian MacDonald APD

“Those 22 fatalities are 22 tragedies for families,” Const. Ian MacDonald said. Abbotsford police have been telling the public about the victims of motor vehicle incidents and collisions for years, but with numbers in the double digits, it’s time to drive home the message, he said. “We’re asking the community to pay particular attention and will be posting road-safety tips on our website.” Patrolling officers, along with the Integrated Road Safety Unit,

will step up enforcement with a visible boost to police presence in Abbotsford as officers target fast and distracted drivers in particular, MacDonald said. “We’ll have speed enforcement, seatbelt enforcement and some stealth vehicles monitoring [driver behaviour] as well.” May is of particular concern for police, MacDonald said, because of the high school grad-

uation season. “A lot of young drivers are out there [during grad] and we want to be especially mindful as a community,” he said. “We have way too many fatalities and way too many collisions taking place right now.” Investigators are seeing an increase in controlled substances being linked to fatal collisions, with two deadly crashes

otorcycle advocates are urging drivers to “take a second look” when operating a motor vehicle, as May is Motorcycle Awareness Month in Canada. Groups across the country are promoting initiatives to raise the profile of motorcyclists on the road since many motor vehicle incidents involving motorbikes often occur because car and truck drivers often claim

they didn’t see the bike. Adele Tompkins, with the British Columbia Coalition of Motorcyclists said in a release that motorcyclists are often not as visible as other road users. “Looking twice can save a life,” she said. Abbotsford police spokesperson Const. Ian MacDonald said the department messages all motor vehicles equally and doesn’t specifically focus on motorcyclists. “The same recommendations for driving

Will Campbell stick around?

P

remier Gordon Campbell let the leadership genie out of the bottle last week, and then quickly tried to put it back in – but I doubt he’s going to be successful. Campbell seemed to go out of his way in two separate media interviews – one with me, the other with my press gallery colleague Jim Beatty – to reference his advancing age as something he has to consider when deciding to run again in 2013. “To be candid about it, you know 2013 is a long way away and I’m 62 years old now so I’ll make decisions as I get closer to 2013,” Campbell told me, and he made a similar comment to Beatty the same day. To put this in context, it’s important to remember that Campbell rarely – if ever – says something publicly that he hasn’t thought through very carefully. Whether it’s a case of “staying on message” or simply being exceedingly careful, Campbell is not known for slips of the tongue. That’s why interviews (or media scrums) with Campbell rarely generate news on their own. Ask him any question on any topic that you want, and his answer will stick to his script, not the questioner’s. Until now, whenever he’s been asked about his re-election plans, he has given the expected enthusiastic thumbs-up to the possibility. Any sign of equivocation would immediately invite

KEITH BALDREY

From the Ledge talk about a leadership succession, and that’s just what his comments did this past week. So his comments about his age suddenly being a factor set off alarm bells in both the B.C. Liberal and NDP camps. No sooner had his comments run on our newscasts than my cell phone starting ringing like crazy as both sides wondered what I thought his comments indicated. First of all, I don’t think Campbell has made up his mind about his leadership intentions. The next election is still three years away, and while his re-election prospects look bleak indeed, there’s no rush to make a call this early in the mandate. However, I think he deliberately signaled to his own party that he is fully aware of the mess that has completely enveloped his government. By opening the door ever so slightly to eventually stepping down, Campbell has bought himself some time. He’s nipped in the bud, for now anyways, any attempt to stir the leadership pot behind his back. Nevertheless, his comments have reminded his party that it may well have to confront a

potentially messy leadership battle down the road. The usual names have surfaced – Mike de Jong, Rich Coleman, Kevin Falcon, even Blair Lekstrom – when talk turns to a possible successor (from outside caucus, two names are being bandied about: Carole Taylor and Dianne Watts). In an odd way, the attention paid to Campbell’s musings also reminded New Democrats of their own challenge on that front. Although the party is cruising along with a double-digit lead in the polls over the B.C. Liberals, the whispers of doubts about Carole James’ leadership abilities simply won’t go away. James is taking a very low profile these days, preferring to let the anti-HST petition led by Bill Vander Zalm (her almost co-leader these days) take all the limelight (at last, the latest joke goes, the NDP finally has a leader with charisma). I’ve written here before that James and Campbell will not square off against each other in 2013. The betting is that it will be Campbell who leaves first, but don’t underestimate the New Democrats’ ability to feast upon their own leaders, even in good times. That leadership genie is going to be floating around for a long time yet, whether either leader likes it or not. ■ Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

ere in Abbotsford and across the country, Canada Road Safety Week is upon us, and unlike so many of the tragedies that plague our modern world, a death involving a motor vehicle is, in many circumstances, a preventable one. Being a safe, diligent driver is not rocket science. The time it takes to learn to drive with care – no matter how many hours with an instructor it may take – is insignificant when compared to how long a family suffers the loss of a loved one in a car accident. Statistics show that many vehicle-related deaths occur from entirely preventable circumstances like drunk driving, driving under the influence of drugs, falling asleep at the wheel or distracted driving. The time has come for society to say enough is enough. No more families need to be needlessly destroyed because one person has put their needs before everyone else’s. This is not like battling cancer, ALS or cystic fibrosis. We do not need millions of dollars, hundreds of researchers, doctors and experts to help us find a cure: we need to take responsibility for getting behind the wheel of an automobile. We must drive soberly and without talking constantly on our mobile devices, we need to wear our seatbelts and observe posted speed limits. We need to come to a complete stop at stop signs and realize a yellow light doesn’t mean speed up, it means slow down. British Columbians are dying on our roads and streets in record numbers and we only have ourselves to blame. No one gets behind the wheel thinking they are going to die today in a horrific motor-vehicle accident. And no one should. Smarten up and drive right, B.C. The alternative is killing us. ■ To comment on this editorial, e-mail us at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com.

Not the right time to add Punjabi Editor, the Times:

Reference is made to the Times article May 11, 2010, titled ‘Parents pushing for Punjabi’, regarding some parents’ wish to have Punjabi courses as an elective language, the reason being that there is approximately 20 per cent of the population in certain Abbotsford areas of that cultural background. Apart from other issues, we are aware that education costs are rising exponentially year by year, and surely any government management should have a goal of reducing costs and keeping educational courses to standard basics which will benefit all students throughout their lifetime. It is therefor necessary to avoid adding courses here and there because some cultural background of a certain segment of the population wishes it, and all citizens must live with the fact that Canada is officially a bilingual country whose languages are English and French. Those are the languages that should take our attention and efforts, and naturally any parent would want their children to be proficient in those since it will lead to good employment in their future years. Furthermore, it has often been stated that English is “the working language of the world,” and the school system should put all efforts into making sure students are proficient in that language and understanding how it evolved. Although my cultural background was neither English nor French, my family had to learn to function in those languages, or at least predominantly in English. Now, it is more important to be officially bilingual,

particularly if there is any aim to be working in a government position or with a group or firm which works with government. For many years past and to the present time, we learned other cultures and languages through parent teaching in the home, or by other alternatives such as self-managed local groups getting together at their community hall, church or other location. It did not involve the school curriculum, teachers or education budget. That is a sensible choice, which allows many other cultures to flourish as they wish in addition to Canada’s official English/French status. L. Rauh Mission

There’s no excuse for animal cruelty Editor, the Times:

Who kicked or hit with a hard object the beautiful long-hair black cat in the vicinity of Cedar Street and McRae Avenue in Mission? My wife called me to our backyard to find this little cat, who had been hanging around our home on and off for several months. He was lying and crying in pain. I tried to check him over but found he was unable to stand. I managed to get him to crawl into a carrying cage and off to our vet. A broken hip and a $2,000 vet bill later, we sought some financial aid. But what coward would strike a cat so hard as to break his hip? Is it not common sense that you do not hit a dog or cat with a hard object or kick it, just because you are unable to control your anger? Another less traumatic event recently found us take in a small black and white cat, who we sud-

denly found was pregnant, and yes, 5 a.m. under our bed, a litter of four kittens appeared. Again, such utter stupidity and irresponsible pet ownership, that its guardian did not have the brains to spay it and to make things worse, permitted the female cat to roam. What on Earth do people think cats are prolific at? Breeding is natural, so they must rely on guardians to exercise some good judgment. Sadly, as well, we read in another article about a newspaper carrier witnessing the family cat being eaten by coyotes (Times, May 7). Again, are people so utterly stupid to allow pets outdoors at night? Then, when their loved one goes missing, they wonder why. If you cannot afford a pet or do not have the intelligence to look after one responsibly, do not adopt one to become a coyote’s dinner. Take a look at your dog or cat. Can you imagine it being ripped apart and eaten? George F. Evens Mission

Recent showcase was artfully done Editor, the Times:

Thanks for voting with integrity Editor, the Times:

To the members of the Abbotsford Board of Education: thank you for your time and energy and efforts on behalf of Abbotsford school children and their families. I appreciate the amount of planning and preparation and research that goes into each decision you make as a governing body. I also appreciate that the heart for children and education that brought you to this position must also break over some of the decisions and votes you each must make. Thank you for taking on this important job. Regarding the consideration for closure of Dunach Elementary, I thank you for reading the many e-mails that were sent, the binders that we compiled, and the K-8 and traditional school proposal that we put forth. Though I did understand why you couldn’t respond to our enquiries, it was hard to keep faith in “the process.” I was very grateful to hear from our trustees that you had read, and listened and heard the requests of Dunach parents. Thank you. Thank you for showing us that our trustees are trying, working hard and listening to Abbotsford parents. I can appreciate the tough spot you were in and I thank you for doing a good job in assessing the overall situation. My mind is still wrapping around the countless hours of work and research that Dunach parents put into this advocacy cam-

paign. My mind is already working ahead to the joint effort between SD34 staff and trustees and Dunach parents as we research and plan for a viable long-term future for Dunach Elementary. Mostly, I just want to say thank you for voting with integrity. Thank you for acknowledging that there was not sufficient information to make such an important decision. Thank you for setting the standard and expectation that we all work harder and do better to serve the best interest of the students of Abbotsford Kristin Erickson Abbotsford

Riled up over revisionist history Editor, the Times:

Normally, I’m in support of what Greg Landing says, but not when he engages in some revisionist history and repeats one of the fundamental arguments now used by militant Islamists’ to spread their message of terror and intimidation. Namely, that there was once upon a time a “Golden Age.” The often cited myth of a Golden Age in Andalusia is just so much romanticized twaddle. By comparison with the conditions in Europe at the time, the Muslim cities of Spain were stunning, but to me it is more stunning that anyone can attribute that glory to Islam, as that civilization mostly copied what it found in the lands they conquered by the sword. When the church in Europe put people on the barbie, they were no different than supporters of the Taliban and al-Qaida are today with their suicide bombers and strict adherence to what I personally consider one of the worst affronts to justice in the

world today: Sharia Law. As Tawfik Hamid said in one article; “It is vital to grasp that traditional, and even mainstream Islamic teaching, accepts and promotes violence. Shariah…allows apostates to be killed, permits beating women to discipline them, seeks to subjugate nonMuslims to Islam as ‘dhimmis’ and justifies declaring war to do so. It exhorts good Muslims to exterminate the Jews before the ‘end of days.’” Witch burning has ended in Europe yet fundamentalist interpretations of The Koran and Sharia Law still literally enslaves with its tribal customs and barbaric justice codes. So, you bet, Mr. Landing. I will say bluntly that I agree with moderate voices from within Islam calling for a Reformation to occur like we had in Europe which set us on the road to separation of church and state. The Ages of Reason and Entitlement you belittled led to some of the greatest advancements in European civilization, made possible the U.S. constitution and our charter of rights. So, are you saying those achievements aren’t important? We need to have an honest debate about just how far we can, or should, take diversity in this country. Sharia Law must never be allowed to set up shop here. I’ve been vocal about allowing religious fundamentalism of any kind to spill over into the secular world. If that makes me an infidel, then fine, I have some Danish cartoons to look at. No amount of apologist thinking will deter me from putting my rights and freedoms ahead of anyone’s dogma. Robert T.

Jim McDonald, 87, cut the ribbon with Mayor George Peary to officially open the Dunach Elementary Friendship Garden on Friday evening. McDonald attended the school in 1938 when it was a junior high school. His mother, daughter, and granddaughter also went to the rural school, and he’s hoping his great granddaughter will attend there in a few years, making it five generations. “We think our community is unique and worthy of celebrating,” PAC chairman Heather Schmidt said before the festivities.

THE TIMES TUESDAY, MAY 18, 2010 ❘ KING, from page A7 Years ago, Mitchell was one of Rasti’s students in Grade 5, and the teacher remembers fondly how she got the enviro bug after MP Randy White visited the classroom. Later she and her fellow classmates wrote letters to him. “She got motivated that she could make a difference,” said Rasti. “It gave her a voice.” In January, Rasti initiated a class debate where her students took sides on whether land should be kept for farms or be used for new developments. Mitchell came to talk to the students about the Agricultural Land Reserve. Now she’s giving back again to her

DECISION, from page A5

More meetings

Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen agreed at the Saturday hearing that air quality was a critical issue. “It’s a long-term [impact] in the sense that every time you add an incremental pollution source it’s going to affect us more in the valley than others,” he said. Van Dongen noted that Environment Minister Barry Penner lives in the airshed and understands local concerns. Penner’s ministry will have the final say on whatever option Metro Vancouver decides to adopt.

“I have a lot of confidence in Minister Barry Penner. He will give all submissions made to him all the appropriate analysis before he makes a decision. I have confidence that he understands our need for a solid case for maintaining the quality of our air,” he said. Van Dongen also noted the business community was uneasy with Metro’s incinerator option. “Economists [Vancouver Board of Trade, Surrey Board of Trade, chambers of commerce] generally question the

analysis that has been done. We have a right to question all those things,” van Dongen said. Sending waste to Gold River may not impact air quality in the Fraser Valley, said Ross, but there are still unknown financial risks to local businesses and residents. Metro Vancouver has five more information meetings, including one at 6 p.m. on June 16, with the Fraser Valley Regional District, at Best Western Rainbow Country Inn, 43971 Industrial Way, Chilliwack.

said Rasti, who knows the importance of getting kids informed and on board at an early age. “We all need to be aware of what’s happening in our world, to make a positive contribution, to make a difference, and it starts with kids,” said Rasti. “My job as a teacher is to encourage change in our society to make a positive difference.” After the minister’s visit, the students wrote about the experience in their journals and discussed it in class. “It was interesting because we had a politician come talk about the environment and hear his point of view,” said student Nicholas Ksinan.

The seven-pound pie CHRISTINA TOTH

Bottom line

R

ay Hill of Fat Freddy’s Pizzeria made us a Chicago offer we couldn’t refuse. He came by last week with one of the biggest pizzas we’ve ever seen at the Times office (at nearly seven pounds, the biggest in the valley, according to Hill), a deep-dish Chicago-style pie that fed about eight of our crew. “It’s a hungry man pizza,” said Hill, who has run the pizzeria and pasta shop at 2624 Gladys Street in Abbotsford for his son for about five years. People come from Surrey, Chilliwack and Maple Ridge to tuck in the pizzas formed with daily-made dough,

freshly-chopped veggies, homemade sauces and Edam and mozzarella cheeses. Vegetarian or meat, “our customers say it’s the best pizza in the valley,” said Hill. But, don’t take his word for it, Fat Freddy’s (604-852-4328) is open 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, and 4 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. It’s across from Moe’s Bottle Depot.

Anti-inflammatory herbs can help Easing arthritic joints could become easier

C

ombination dietary supplements containing glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates have become the most popular natural solutions for care and repair of osteoarthritic joints. Recent studies have shown that these compounds are even more effective when combined with natural, plant-based antiinflammatories and antioxidants. Inflammation is a natural reaction of the body to protect damaged cells. It is both a symptom and a cause of pain. The word comes from the Latin inflammare, which means “to set on fire.” Without inflamma-

tion, wounds and infections would never heal. But chronic inflammation can lead to, or prolong, diseases including osteoarthritis. Scientists have tested a new type of joint supplement, combining glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, InflamEase (a patentpending blend of botanical anti-inflammatories) and antioxidant fruit and berry extracts. This approach was found to improve joint flexibility and ease joint pain more than sulfate formulas alone. - NEWS CANADA

Important steps to prevent fatal falls for seniors Keeping in regular contact

K

athleen was an active 85-year old until she s l i p p e d i n t h e b a t h t u b, cracking several vertebrae and breaking her wrist. To d a y, s h e l i v e s i n a n e x t e n d e d c a r e f a c i l i t y, missing the friends from her old neighbourhood where she lived for more than 35 years. Kathleen’s situation is not uncommon. Falls are one of the greatest health risks for seniors. Ever y year, one out of every three seniors over the age of 65 will fall, and more than eight out of ten injur y-related hospitalizations for seniors are a result of falls. “The good news is that most falls are predictable a n d p re v e n t a b l e,” s a y s Holly Quinn, spokesperson for myNurse, a new service from Bayshore Home Health that offers people regular health management visits by a registered nurse. Quinn suggests the following to help prevent falls: ■ Since most falls occur at home, especially in the kitchen, on the stairs or in the bathroom, take some time to review any potential hazards. Make sure stairs are well-lit, eliminate throw rugs and use a non-skid bath mat. ■ Develop a safe program for staying active to help strengthen legs and i m p r ov e f l e x i b i l i t y a n d balance. ■ We a r s l i p p e r s w i t h non-skid soles and replace worn or ill-fitting footwear

to prevent tripping. In case of a fall, have a plan to get help. Consider getting a personal alarm and keep a mobile or cordless phone available at all times.

Grant helps kick limits

T

he Abbotsford Community Foundation made a $1,000 grant to the I CAN Play Soccer program, one of the Canucks Autism Network (CAN) sport-based programs that caters to the unique challenges and strengths that children with autism face. Sandy Hill Elementary School has been home to the I CAN Play Soccer program in Abbotsford since October 2009. It has 14 participants, with ages ranging from four to 10 years old. Eight participants have ASD, and the rest are siblings. The pro-

gram was filled within a month of being opened and continues to have a positive impact for those participating and volunteering. The I CAN Play Soccer program teaches basic soccer skill development to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their siblings. It encourages and promotes friendship, sportsmanship and confidence as participants can engage in an activity that is often unavailable to them. Those interest in helping to fund community recreation or other programs supporting community vitality, contact Abbotsford Community Foundation at 604-850-3755.

DERKSEN John H

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of (Mary) Noel Butterfield on the morning of May 15, 2010 at Mission Memorial Hospital in the presence of her daughter, Cathi Robinson (Butterfield) and son , Gordon Butterfield. She is predeceased by her daughter Lou Anne Mansfield (Butterfield), and her brothers Ray and Len Doyle. She is survived by her younger sister Marie Corcoran (Doyle), and brothers Jim and Bernie Doyle. Noel was born in New Westminster, second child to Gertrude and Charles Doyle. Noel was the proud May Queen in New Westminster’s May Day Festival of 1935. After graduating from St. Anne’s Academy, she enjoyed working at the Royal Bank until her marriage to Elmore J. Butterfield of Butterfield’s Florists. She was active in the florist industry making many lasting friends over twenty years. A devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Noel delighted in being surrounded by her family. In her later years she enjoyed life with her partner Lloyd J. Harder. Her zest for life and her lively sense of humor drew many friends to her and her smile will be sorely missed by everyone. Funeral service will take place on Friday, May 21 at 11:00 AM at St. Joseph Church, 32550 7th Avenue, Mission. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA.

SUDOKU Fun By The Numbers

Like puzzles? Then you'll love Sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your Sudoku savvy to the test!

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Taking aim at Valley title Mouat’s javelin pair hit by Cupid’s arrow

CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

W

JEAN KONDA-WITTE

JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

M

ouat track coach Cam Smith may have a secret weapon in a pair of javelin throwers who are not only tough to beat on the field, but tough to separate off. Grade 10 students Jake Heathcote, who excels in javelin, discus and hammer, and Angie Perkins, javelin and discus, are an item both on and off the field. Heathcote didn’t pick up a javelin until last year in Grade 9, and admits he got interested in track ‘because of a girl.’ “She [Perkins] had been doing javelin for awhile and she taught me how to do it.” He proved to be a quick learner and in the recent Upper Fraser Valley Track and Field Championships, Heathcote took first in discus, second in javelin and fifth in senior hammer throw. He broke the school record for discus and hammer, and with a throw of 40.13 metres and nearly broke the school record for javelin. “It’s all speed and technique, not brute strength,” he said, adding he trains with Angie several hours a day, four times a week. What could be better? Even the coach is pleased. “Not even the throwing; they’re just two great kids. They both take on the younger kids and coach them. I call them my assistant coaches,” said Smith, who graduated from Mouat 10 years ago and has been coaching track ever since, with his dad, John Sr., who was the Hawks’ track coach for 35 years before retiring. “I love to coach. I love being around kids and seeing them improve,” said Smith. For the most part track is an individual sport he explained. “It’s you against yourself. The kids don’t realize how much this helps them in their other sports, in life even. It’s discipline.” Perkins, a former baseball player with a good throwing arm, found the field events a perfect fit. She took first in javelin and third in discus at the Upper Fraser Valley meet. Last year she threw just a metre short of her 6’2” boyfriend’s throw. It’s all in the legs, core, arms and having enough speed, she explained. Heathcote competes in three field events and admits he is not much interested in the track, per se. “Running can be more exciting. [But] it’s really a frame of mind,” he said. “There’s just as much training [with throwing] and you put all your training and strength into five seconds to throw as hard as you can. That’s what makes it really exciting for me; it all boils down to those five seconds.” Heathcote likes his chances for the Fraser Valleys, which started yesterday at Rotary Stadium, but figures his main competition will come from athletes from Hatzic and Brookswood. As for Smith, he’s looking for top placings from some of his other athletes, including distance running phenom Alex Siemens in the 800 m, 1,500m and 3,000m, Tanya Boyko in discus, shot put and hammer, Tanner Strauss in hurdles and pole vault, and Melissa Lokombo in shot. “She [Lokombo] came here, never threw anything in her life and she’s right now Top 3 in B.C. in shot put,” said Smith. He also coaches a group of Grade 10 boys that he likes to call ‘the fabulous eight.’ “They’re football players and they got the track

Van der Gulik contract status up in the air

– JEAN KONDA-WITTE/TIMES

Track athletes Jake Heathcote and Angie Perkins are an item both on and off the field. Both are hoping to clean up for their school, W. J. Mouat, in javelin and discus at the Fraser Valley Track and Field Championships at Rotary Stadium in Abbotsford this week.

bug and they just want to run, like horses in a stable. They’ve got the passion.” All are part of a strong Mouat contingent, who will be looking for a big slice of the pie in the Fraser Valley Championships, which wrap up on Thursday at Rotary Stadium in Abbotsford.

“Track never gets the accolades like other sports, but to me it’s a sport where everybody gets to contribute to the end result,” said Smith. For the athletes who qualify, juniors and seniors will compete together at the provincials at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby on June 5.

h e n D a v i d Va n d e r Gulik arrived in Abbotsford after the Calgary Flames assigned him back to the American Hockey League, he made no bones about the fact he’d rather be in the NHL than playing in his hometown. After all, as he said last September, no one dreams of just making it to the AHL. But, he figured, if he couldn’t play in Calgary, playing for the brand new Abbotsford Heat in front of his friends and family would be the next best thing. And he didn’t disappoint. T h e f e i s t y, ye t s l i g h t l y undersized winger, received the loudest cheer when the players of the new team were introduced on opening night in October before a crowd of more than 5,000 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. He scored one of the biggest goals in the Heat’s short history, to clinch a berth in the Calder Cup playoffs. And although the Heat came up short in a hard fought sixgame series against Hamilton last week, Van der Gulik said he cherished every moment playing in his hometown. “It was a very special year for myself and my wife to be back here,” he said on Wednesday, two days after losing the North Division final to the Bulldogs. “The last three years of pro hockey, being on the road for half the year and missing all the special things, not seeing the family and Christmas time, it’s hard. “Just being back in the community that I grew up in and knowing so many people and having all that support from friends and family that came to the games and to be able to play in front of them was obviously a thrill.” He said having the extra fan support helped him put up one of his best years as a pro. Known as a defence-first winger, Van der Gulik finished the 2009-2010 season second on the Heat in scoring behind Jason Jaffray, despite missing 16 games due to injury. But regardless of his numbers and hometown connections, Van der Gulik must face the reality that he may have played his last game as a member of the Heat last week in Hamilton. see GULIK, page A27

Serving up some Grit Hat trick for Abby rugby

T

hey played like sandpaper, but in the end, fell just short. The Columbia Volleyball Club Grit U-18 Division 2 girl’s squad was defeated by the Mill Bay Tsunami in the semifinal of this year’s U-17/U-18 Canadian Open, which was hosted this past weekend in Abbotsford. The Grit came out slow in the first set of the match against the Tsunami, losing 25-16. Facing elimination from the tournament, the Grit pushed their opponents from Vancouver Island to the edge, however their attempted comeback was not to be as they dropped a heart breaker with a score of 25-22 to the eventual Division 2 Tier 1 champions. In order to qualify for the semifinal, the Grit had to go up against the Dynamite, a team from Winnipeg, Man. T h e G r i t n a r r ow l y escaped that match with a win, despite winning in straight sets 2-0. Both teams traded points throughout the match, but it was the Grit that prevailed by scores of 25-21 and 25-23.

I

f the City of Abbotsford held a parade for a championship rugby team, there would have to be three different routes this year. With beautiful Klahanie Park in West Vancouver acting as the backdrop, the Abbotsford Rugby Football Club pulled off the hat trick and came away with three different provincial championships this past weekend to end a nearly perfect season. The Abbotsford Division I women’s team managed to stave off a hard-charging SFU squad in the second half of the final thanks to a last minute try by Amanda Robson. On the men’s side, the Division I team from Abbotsford notched its second championship in three years with a decisive 45-10 triumph over the Langley Rugby Club. Dan Tou and Corey Sheremeto scored two tries each for Abbotsford, while Ryan McWhinney and

Konrad Rybkowski also added majors for the local team. Nick Thiessen hit six converts and added one penalty kick. The provincial title was the cherry on top of what was a dominating season for the Division I squad. Abbotsford was undaunted by any and all competition this year, finishing with a perfect 11-0 record in the spring season. However, the Abbotsford Division II squad, which also finished the regular season with a perfect 11-0 record, had things a little tougher in its championship confrontation against the Kamloops club team. Abbotsford narrowly defeated their interior foes by a score of 31-27. - CAM TUCKER/TIMES

The Grit started the tournament off strong on Friday afternoon at the UFV Envision Athletics Centre with a sweep against the Heat Elite

squad from Surrey. The Grit dominated the match, winning by scores of 25-14 and 25-17. CAM TUCKER/TIMES

The 27-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent as of July 1, and he’s not sure exactly what the future holds for him. “I don’t know at all what they’re thinking,” he said of Flames management. “My agent and everyone will talk over the next couple of months and we’ll see what happens. “I do want to make the NHL. That’s my No. 1 goal

and so if there’s an opportunity maybe somewhere else that we think I may have a better chance, then I may have to go elsewhere.” “There’s a few personal stats I’m happy with and a few I’d like to have had better,” he said. But no matter what the future holds for Van der Gulik, he said playing in front of the home crowd still means a lot. “It’s something I’ll never forget.”

More harm than good

CEREMONY THAT’S THE SPIRIT

Mobile needle truck could beat city bylaw CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com

bbotsford’s drug users plan to march on city hall today with coffins and a ‘die-in’ to draw attention to the consequences of an Abbotsford bylaw that advocates say does more harm than good.

“If you want to spread disease, you would not want to have a needle exchange. It’s mean-spirited and odd. It defies logic.” – Ann Livingston VANDU

The city’s ‘harm reduction-free’ bylaw runs counter to accepted public health policies and puts the general community at risk, said Ann Livingston with the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU). “If you want to spread disease, you would not want to have a needle exchange. It’s mean-spirited and odd. It defies logic,” she said. see HARM, page A4

Foul play not suspected in sidewalk death

Speaking out at WTE info session

bbotsford police rushed to the 33700 block of Hillcrest Avenue Friday afternoon after receiving reports of an unconscious man on the sidewalk. APD members immediately performd CPR on the man, who was later determined to be a 44-year-old Abbotsford resident. Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead on scene. Toxicology and coroner reports are expected, but the man suffered from health problems, and police have found nothing suspicious regarding his death.

E

nvironmentalists and politicians spoke out against Metro Vancouver District’s proposals for waste management in the region at a public hearing held in Abbotsford on Saturday. Metro Vancouver wants to build at least one incinerator to burn waste and create energy.

Its other options are to ship the region’s waste to an incinerator built by Covanta at Gold River on Vancouver lsland, or to continue trucking the waste to landfills in Cache Creek and Burn’s Bog in Delta. However, ZeroWasteBC promoters want cities to reduce garbage first, through more intense recycling, composting organic materials and pressuring manufacturers to use less packaging. Local resident Linda Martens, who attended the rally, agreed.
