RCMP crash ‘super lab’ 10 kg of ecstasy made at a time RAFE ARNOTT RArnott@abbotsfordtimes.com

R

CMP arrested four people after dismantling a multi-million dollar ecstasy “super lab” at a rural Abbotsford residence on Lefuevre Road May 31, police said. The illegal lab was capable of producing more than 10 kg of the drug per batch, Vancouver drug section spokesperson Sgt. Dave Goddard said. Any lab making 10 kg of ecstasy at a time – or per reaction – is tagged “super,” by the drug section, he said. RCMP drug investigators have seen 15 to 23 labs of this type per year for the last several years in British Columbia, Goddard said.

Drugs, violence trigger Mission prison lockdown Mission Institution has been under a lockdown since Fr iday following concerns over increased drug activity and inmate violence, Assistant Warden Jonathan Ratzlaff said. The procedure was initiated to help Corrections Canada conduct searches for contraband drugs and weapons and to ensure the safety of the public and inmates, he said. “We’re trying to determine who is muscling who, and why. “Things were coming to a head,” Ratzlaff said. A search of the facility turned up tobacco, marijuana and unidentified pharmaceuticals. “It’s just a matter of shaking the place down,” he said. Prison officials were hoping to lift the lockdown by today or tomorrow, and resume scheduled visits, Ratzlaff said. “ We just want to get things back to normal.” Ratzlaff said it’s next to impossible to stop the flow of illicit items into the prison, but corrections officials were doing there best. “All we can do is try to control it to a degree, I don’t think we can ever eliminate drugs in prisons,” he said. - RAFE ARNOT

Successful manhunt CHAFFEY, from page A1 manhunt in the Lower Mainland. Ryan James Chaffey, 30, of Abbotsford was taken into custody without incident after Abbotsford police tracked him to a home in the 1000 block of Ross Road, police said. Chaffey, who has previous convictions for robbery, assault and escape from custody, was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant after failing to check in with parole officers on May 31. Heavily-armed members of the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response team, along with a police helicopter and crime-reduction officers arrested Chaffey around 5 p.m. Sunday, APD Const. Ian MacDonald said. Police received several eyewitness reports last week of Chaffey in the Abbotsford area, and had reliable information that he was armed and was possibly engaging in criminal activity, MacDonald said. “We hope to link him to some crimes that took place in Abbotsford while he was in breach of his parole.” Chaffey previously escaped custody in 2003 after jumping out of the prisoner’s dock in an Abbotsford courtroom and stealing a van from outside the building. He was arrested three days later in the Chilliwack River after holding up a gas station. Police are crediting public assistance in the case for the quick arrest of Chaffey on Sunday. “As soon as we put out a media release requesting the public’s help in locating Chaffey, we started receiving all sorts of tips and information,” MacDonald said.


A4 ❘ NEWS ❘ TUESDAY, JUNE 15, 2010 THE TIMES LAB, from page A1 “It was a fairly sophisticated lab . . . it’s the amount of production that makes it a super lab.” Experienced cookers can manufacture a batch of ecstasy within 48 hours, and each batch carries a street value of hundreds of thousands of dollars, making it a lucrative market for criminals, he said. Once the Lefeuvre Road residence was secure, Health Canada representatives confirmed the building was an active ecstasy lab. “When you attend suspected crime scenes such as this one you never know what you are going to find,” Goddard said. “[Clandestine] labs are notoriously dangerous for the types of chemicals used and their volatility. Fortunately, in this case we were able to take custody of the people in the building as they exited.” Investigators found large quantities of hexane, methyl hydrate, methylamine chloride, caustic soda pearls, isopropyl alcohol, solvent, hydrogen chloride anhydrous and MDP2P, all common ingredients in the manufacture of ecstasy, Goddard said.

Police in head-to-toe protective gear examine chemicals found in a Lefeuvre Road drug lab in Abbotsford on May 31.

Abbotsford Police Department spokesperson Const. Ian MacDonald said APD officers attending the scene to assist RCMP had to endure extreme decontamination procedures because of the toxic chemicals at the home. Four Lower Mainland residents face charges of ecstasy production.

A natural ability for logical thinking is earning Sung il Ahn some serious academic hardware.

Doesn’t think he’s really all that special WHIZ, from page A1 Although he’s made great strides with the language, he lets his math prowess do the talking. In the Grade 12 Euclid test from the University of Waterloo, Ahn placed in the top 2.7 percent for all of Canada. He placed first in the UFV math contest for grades 8-10, was first in the Elmacon math contest at UBC and first in the grades 8-10 Gauss test from U of Waterloo. “After you’ve done something hard, you feel really good,” he said of his accomplishments. But he doesn’t think it’s such a big deal. “I don’t see that as special because I know 20 or 30 people who do math like me.” As an educator, Bath knows better. “He’s verging on the genius. We’ve never seen anything like this before.” He added that Ahn is the only Abbotsford Middle student who has ever entered the higher-level exams. The

Y

teen takes it all as a matter of course. “He’s even keel, but much more focused on work. He thinks more logically,” Bath said of the math prodigy. “He’ll go far.” The challenge for Abbotsford Middle is to help Ahn expand his potential. “He has reached the limits of what we can offer him here,” said Bath.

Account frozen, but Tradex security not left in cold Medallion can’t pay, new companies stepping up CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com

E

mployees of Medallion Security Corporation got an unwanted surprise on Friday when they received a letter of regret instead of a pay cheque. In the letter dated June 11, Medallion’s owner Bradley Styba said due to an ongoing dispute with Canada Revenue Agency, he has to wind down the company. Revenue Canada froze both

the company accounts as well as his personal accounts, and he cannot release pay cheques until the CRA removes their restrictions, Styba wrote in the letter. He apologized in his letter for not making payroll, but sounded hopeful that he would be able to meet CRA requirements to release the accounts so his staff could be paid. “Again, I apologize for not making payroll today, I am working very hard with CRA

to get this released ASAP and it is with great hope that it will be done quickly. Please understand that we will continue to make sure that we work with CRA to get the account active so payroll can be done,” he wrote. Medallion Security Corp., also known as Medallion Events Specialists, provided security and event support staff to the Tradex trade and exhibition centre and to other companies, employing about two dozen security

workers and several others who worked in housekeeping and events services. Styba wrote that he had made arrangements with Ray’s Security Patrol Service in Abbotsford to take over the security work at Tradex, and a Surrey company to take over events services. Mike Hammond of Ray’s Security confirmed that he was at the Medallion office Friday and met with some of the 22 Medallion security workers to offer them jobs.

SPCA summer day camps running throughout July in Abbotsford this summer. “This is not a summer camp in the traditional sense with campfires and sing-alongs, but it is a way for children to enjoy time with animals and learn about their care and welfare,” said Paula Neuman, the B.C. SPCA’s humane education supervisor. Da i l y a c t i v i t i e s ra n g e from games, arts and crafts, skits and guest speakers, all around the theme of animal welfare. Each day, campers will

The camps are from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except for four-day camps) throughout July. The cost is $170 per student, or $150 for students who are members of the B.C.

hilosophy instructor Glen Baier of Yarrow is this year’s winner of the Teaching Excellence award at the University of the Fraser Valley. Baier started his post-secondary education at what was then Fraser Valley College back in 1982. He was so enthralled with the instruction and the subject matter of his courses, particularly the philosophy ones, that he was inspired to continue his education and become an academic philosopher himself. “Once I did my first semester I was hooked,” he says. “I really loved philosophy right from the start.” After three semesters at Fraser Valley College, Baier continued his education at UBC, earning a BA, and at McMaster University, where he

a simple form with a few survey questions, which can be obtained from a student or completed on site. This event will be held in the upper parking lot of the school (from 7th Avenue, turn into the school driveway nearest to Juniper Street), from 3 p.m until about 6:30 p.m. New drivers and those with their learner’s permit are welcome to come and test drive, provided they are accompanied by an adult. ◗ For more information on the Drive one 4ur school program, visit www.driveone4urschool.com or learn more on Facebook.

A new path for B.C. Liberals

T

he one consistent factor that distinguished the B.C. Liberal government from its two predecessors has been shattered with the boltfrom-the-blue resignation of Blair Lekstrom from the government caucus. From 1986 to 1991, B.C. was governed by political parties that found themselves mired in internal problems that eventually boiled over into public view. The result for both the Social Credit and the New Democratic Party administrations was eventual, total collapse. Both parties took out their own leaders. Bill Vander Zalm, Mike Harcourt and, to a lesser degree Glen Clark, all had to step aside prematurely as their own people broke ranks with their leadership. But this long-running narrative suddenly changed with the election of Gordon Campbell and the B.C. Liberals in 2001. For the past nine years, the administration has been able to hold itself together through scandal and controversy with little evidence of internal dissent. Some high-profile people (Carole Taylor, Christy Clark and Gary Collins being the most notable) left the government, but their departures were not attached to any publicly voiced displeasure about policies or leadership. But Lekstrom’s sudden resignation changes things. For the

KEITH BALDREY

From the Ledge first time, a credible member of the B.C. Liberals has parted ways publicly with his party and his leader (Lekstrom once voted against a government bill that tore up a health union’s collective agreement, but that’s small potatoes compared to quitting the caucus). The question now: Will anyone else from the caucus follow his lead? Will any other Liberal MLA opt out of what appears, for now at least, a car heading over a cliff? Lekstrom’s motivations for his resignation have been questioned. He says he’s leaving over how the HST has been handled, insisting the government should pull back from implementing it and embark on a six-month consultation process. But some think he’s really preparing to run federally for the Conservatives in the next election, or is even thinking of heading up a third provincial party. He’s neatly disassociated himself from the dreaded HST (even though he voted to repeal the provincial sales tax, which clears the decks for bringing in the HST), which should help his political future.

But whatever his reasons, Lekstrom’s move has thrust the very real grumbling within government into the public spotlight. New Democrats and their anti-HST allies are salivating at what they see as an eventual avalanche of dissent, as one Liberal MLA after another bolts from their leader. What is really unknown is the depth of loyalty certain newly elected MLAs have to Campbell and the B.C. Liberal brand. For the most part, they represent rural ridings that encompass regions that once voted for the old federal Reform Party in large numbers and are particularly incensed over the HST. But I wouldn’t bet the farm on anyone else leaving just yet. There’s going to be a lot of hand-holding occurring in the B.C. Liberal caucus in the weeks ahead, as the premier and senior cabinet ministers try to calm the waters and implore everyone to stick together. They will all be watched closely over the summer. Lekstrom has opened the door to a path that could see the government fall apart, or he has simply consigned himself to the lonely life of an independent MLA. Either way, the days of a concrete unified front appear to be over for the B.C. Liberals. ■ Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C. Contact him at: KBaldrey@globaltv.com.

t has been said (although not by us) that women and men now enjoy complete equality in society. Even if that were true when it comes to opportunities in business, there is still one way in which women are decidedly unequal. Almost every case of domestic violence between partners is directed at women. Violence against women, both inside and outside of relationships, still plagues our society. We have seen two ongoing and vivid examples of this in the past week. In New Westminster Supreme Court, jurors heard that Gwendolyn Jo Lawton and Sheryl Lynn Koroll were strangled and beaten to death. Whether the accused, Davey Butorac, is the guilty party is still up to the jury to decide. All we can know with certainty is that their murders were brutal. Recently, police revealed that the young woman shot dead in Cloverdale was Marianthi Teresa Tsanas. She was killed by a man she had a relationship with, police say; he took his own life later that day. Murders such as these make headlines. The assaults, threats, and intimidation that fill out domestic violence statistics seldom come to full public attention. Fortunately, the third story on this topic this week is a hopeful one. The Langley RCMP have gone after domestic violence, and their tactics have proved so successful they may be adopted province-wide. The Langley police focus is on protecting the victims, both women and children. They’ve been successful, with more prosecutions and more convictions. It’s important to hold up the efforts like this one, to show that men and women working together can work to end the unthinking violence that still takes victims each and every year. ■ To comment on this editorial, e-mail us at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com.

◗ Your view Last week’s question: Did the Abbotsford board of education do a good job handling the district’s budget? 33 % a.] Absolutely; it truly could have been worse.

19 % b.] More should have been done to protect teachers’ jobs.

48%

c.] No. Too many costs were downloaded onto families.

This week’s question: Should Abbotsford’s board of education explain why they lost secretary-treasurer Mark Lee a week after the budget, and only 10 months after his hiring? a.] No – their relationship with staff is none of our business. b.] Yes – a huge amount of taxpayer money is involved. c.] They should but they won’t. This board hides too much.

Pointless to fight exchange From working directly with homeless people for the past several years around Abbotsford and Mission, both as a volunteer, visiting people in their tent cities or cardboard boxes and currently as a shelter worker, I am very familiar with the plight these very vulnerable members of society face. Mission has made great strides in helping homeless in our community such as the Haven in the Hollow Shelter and newly opening Grand Street Lodge where people can live in independent suites but have access to trained mental health workers and other support staff. Abbotsford, however, with a much larger population has made little progress, a city that is especially known for espousing Christian values. A pressing issue for municipalities has been the needle exchange program, used in Europe for decades, and in Vancouver, Surrey and even Chilliwack for several years, and is one of the fundamental three pillars in actually reducing drug abuse and its consequences. Needle exchange also puts addicts in contact with mental health and addiction workers that increase the chance a person seeks treatment and gets clean. What is our greatest fear about this program in Abbotsford? It’s simple, flawed logic: That programs such as the needle exchange condone drug use and actually will increase its rate. This is

farthest from the truth: most of the people on the street, though having different individual stories, have faced a similar lack of social support from family members [who] were abusive or neglectful, living conditions throughout their life. Wake up Abbotsford. Because of the desperate circumstances this segment of the population is in, people seeking a temporary escape from their misery will continue to happen. While we seek to solve the larger problems that have led people to drug use in the first place why do we add the additional misery of shared needles massively increasing people’s chance of contracting HIV and Hepatitis? Are we so naive as to think that by not giving users clean needles they will stop doing drugs? But there is another benefit besides lowering disease rates in the presently addicted population, it is something that benefits us all. Having a needle exchange program prevents dirty needles from being on the streets or in our parks and unsuspecting children from stepping on them. Lowering disease rates in the addicted population also lowers the chance that frontline

workers, such as myself, or doctors, nurses and mental health workers will contract the same diseases or spend up to 10 years on painful anti-retroviral drugs to ward off infection from accidental needle sticks or contaminated clothing, wounds, etc. While more and more of Abbotsford’s church-going population move to Sumas Mountain and commute to work to their work, they may not see the poor and the addicted for months to years at a time and so ignorance becomes bliss – but the problem remains.

Nothing crooked about senate system Editor, the Times:

Regarding the letter by James Brekenridge Time for Harper to check his dictionary (Times, June 8). Only someone who lives in a vacuum could author a letter like this. I do not believe there is any evidence that, under the Conservatives or the Liberals, that money buys their seat. Under our present system, senator appointments are made by party affiliation. Breckenridge seems not to have noticed that during the long Liberal rule, party faithfuls were appointed to the Senate. Harper has tried to gain consensus for an elected senate for a fixed term but has not had the majority or co-operation of other parties. Harper was obliged to appoint senators to fill senate vacancies and did so with conditions they would stand for election if, at a later date, senate reform was possible. see LETTERS, page A12

with special needs.” – Jodi Tucker Kids Matter Inc.

The other offers lots of hands-on fun and an opportunity for children with developmental challenges to enhance their social skills. “Lots of parents can’t find programs equipped for children with special needs,” said Jodi Tucker, who runs Kids Matter Inc., which provides activities for children with disorders such as autism or sensory processing disorder. All children need to feel a sense

of belonging with their peers, and camps and after-school programs can offer that in a less structured way, she said. The camps, suitable for children with such disorders from about 9 to 12 years, include themes such as artrageous, science, grossology, and Star for a Week, which will look at the children’s special interests. Tucker will interview interested parents to determine their child’s needs and interests. “I’m looking for ‘goodness of fit,’ ”

she said. The Kids Matters camps are offered in the morning through July. The cost is $250 per child. See www.kidsmattercanada.com for details and to register or call toll free to 1-877-882-9090.

engaged in some cool community camps offered at the MSA Museum this summer. Set on the beautiful grounds of the Trethewey heritage house, the museum staff members offer fun afternoon programs for the weeks starting July 12 to August 27. All the camps have a heritage flavour, said the museum’s special programs director, Christina Reid. Themes include Trains, Planes and Automobiles, hosted by local pioneers who know a thing or two about how things have changed – kids may even build a soapbox car. Another week looks at life in the Middle Ages, and kids can learn medieval skills and games of the day. During archaeology week, youngsters will get dirty as they dig up buried treasures and clues, maybe even a skeleton or two. The fourth week features sports and children’s games from the 1940s and ’50s, with badminton, marbles, jacks, checkers and more. Finally, there is Egyptian week, when campers will make their own mummies, hieroglyphics and other things ancient and mysterious. The camps are $75 a week, and suited for kids aged six to 10, including ESL youngsters. All camp leaders are qualified and have criminal record checks.

A12 ❘ LETTERS ❘ TUESDAY, JUNE 15, 2010 THE TIMES

America’s oil leak problem spills over into the broader issue of mindless consumption LETTERS, from page A9 On pensions – same story – he did not have the majority to over-rule. As for affordable housing and child poverty, these are the kind of issues that have been used by opposition to embarrass the government in power. We have far bigger problems than noted above that I believe are destroying the fabric of our democracy, but these issues are not for public consumption, ergo we are not a true democracy. Al C. Johnson Abbotsford

Reducing consumption increases quality of life Editor, the Times:

Considering how devastating the effects of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will be for generations to come, it is high time we took stock of how our lifestyles contribute to the need for drilling in these types of sensitive areas in the first place. We are all able to reduce our consumption habits. In the last few days I have

witnessed a home owner cleaning the sidewalk in front of her home and a shopkeeper clearing the walkway in front of his business using a gaspowered blower. These were very small areas: why use a gas-powered device? These two individuals probably drove their vehicles to the gas station to fill up their gas cans as well. What a waste of time, money and effort. I think one can buy a pushbroom for less than $10 with no serious side effects for our environment.

To those who see jet-skis, ATVs, motorboats, snowmobiles, etc. as a necessity I would suggest a canoe or kayak, take up cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, or find some other means of enjoying the outdoors without trashing it. Many of the aforementioned recreational toys have few if any emission control standards, are noisy, and have a detrimental effect on the air and water we depend on for life. Other petroleum-based products are also unnecessary and

could easily be eliminated or replaced with but a modicum of thought. As of 2005, Canadians were using more than 10 billion plastic grocery bags a year and an estimated 27 million more are produced every day! They take hundreds of years to break down in a landfill. It is within our power to make a change in our impact on the planet; all we have to do is try, because no one is going to do it for us. Kevin Charles Abbotsford

PETS FRIENDS FOR LIFE

Top travel tips for pets

Being pet prepared leads to a more enjoyable trip for all

I

t’s June. Many of us are thinking about summer time adventures and are hoping to take our pets with us. After all, they are family members. There is so much to remember when getting ready to travel: finishing work projects; getting the kids ready; packing; getting the pets set to go; and securing the house. The following check list is meant to make it easier for you get Fido ready for the holiday trip. ■ Identification. Make sure your pet has identification on him/her at all times. This can take the form of an ID tattoo (is your information is current with the vet hospital that tattooed him?); microchip (have you registered this information?); and ID tags. Use your cell phone number on the ID tags

because you will be traveling and won’t be answering your home phone. Keep duplicates and photos ready in case they go missing. ■ Veterinary visit. Is your pet current on vaccines? Does he/she need heartworm medications? What about anti-anxiety or anti-nausea medications for travel? Or maybe a health certificate? ■ Pack enough food and water. You don’t want to change your pet’s diet part way through the trip unless you have a strong desire to travel with a dog that has diarrhea and needs out of the car, camper or boat every hour. You can’t take dog food across the border, so find out where you can purchase your dog’s brand of food as soon as you cross.

DR. I. ELIZABETH BORGMANN

Pet Points Don’t forget the dog bowls! ■ Pack lots of pooper scooper bags. The excitement will probably make your dog void more frequently so pack at least twice as many bags as you think you will need. Be respectful and scoop the poop.

■ Pack extra collars, leashes and blankets. You want to be able to find one quickly. If you lose one you will need the extras. If one gets dirty during camping, you will want to be able to wash and clean it. Don’t forget brushes to get the mud out! ■ Pack a doggy first aid kit. This should have basic medications and bandaging material. ■ Plan your trips. Are there rest stops? Travel during the cooler times of day if you don’t have air conditioning. ■ Secure your pet. Use

CHESSIE

is a beautiful active 11 yrs old Chesapeake Bay Retreiver. He is a lovely boy that still needs lots of exercise, he would do well in an active family.

■ Traveling by plane? Check with the airline to ensure you know their regulations. ■ Check out doggy day cares and kennels in the area you are visiting. You may want to do some ‘no pets allowed’ activities.

■ Make sure your pet is leashed before exiting the car. They can get frightened and panic. They don’t know the area. ■ Keep your pet cool. They lose heat through panting and their paws. They wear a fur coat. Training your pet to accept a cool mist is a great idea. Park in the shade. Keep windows down. Check on your pet every 10 minutes if left in the car. And don’t forget, shade moves!

■ Find the location and hours of your nearest recommended vet. Hopefully you won’t need this information, but better safe than sorry! ■ Dr. Borgmann is a pet col-

umnist and veterinarian with the Whatcom Road Veterinary Hospital in Abbotsford.

Fathers Day For Playfair, Father’s Day is all about the kids Family always keeps things in perspective CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

J

im Playfair, head coach of the Abbotsford Heat, achieved celebrity status this season within hockey circles for his famous Hulk Hogan-esque tirade towards a referee. It was just one of those things that comes with the territory of being an intense individual in an emotional sport with very high stakes. But not lost in his deep concentration on hockey is the fact that Playfair’s passion lies with his family. With Father’s Day right around the corner, he has no problem sharing just how much wife Roxanne and sons Dylan, Jackson and Austyn mean to him, both as a man and as a coach. “The best thing about Father’s Day is just the ability to spend time with the kids,” Playfair said. “I just wish I could take them to a hockey game,” he said, referring to the AHL Calder Cup finals. While that won’t be the case this year, perhaps a home cooked meal from the kids will be on the menu. After all, an attempt at breakfast in bed from his trio of sons is one of Playfair’s most

fond Father’s Day memories. “I remember when the kids were young, they cooked breakfast and brought it into the room,” he said with a chuckle. “It had to be the first breakfast they had ever cooked. There were pancakes, eggs, bacon, coffee – or at least that’s what it was supposed to be. “We could hear the banging of the pots and the pans in the kitchen . . . it certainly turned into a mess for Mom to clean up, but hey, give them credit, they did it on their own.” A hefty price to pay for a meal, but well worth it, said the coach. But in a business where players and coaches are often looked at as high-priced commodities of entertainment both through the eyes of the media and the fans, Playfair said it’s families that often pay the heaviest price throughout the course of a season and a career. “Ultimately, in our profession, there are highs and lows like getting traded or fired,” he said. “They’re the people that go through those highs and lows with you . . . They make a huge sacrifice to allow us to play the game. “The success comes when you can balance your professional life with your family life. It’s always thought that success is winning the trophy, which is what we are rated by, but there’s more to it. “You need that support [from family].”

Grassroots football programs let fans of all ages link up with the Lions With the 2010 football season now underway, BC Lions fans will soon be heading to Empire Field for the season home opener versus the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday, July 10. But Lions’ action isn’t limited to the field. The team’s grassroots football programs are focused on linking the team with people throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, allowing the Lions and fans of all ages to share their love of football.

“I have been involved with our grassroots football programs for many seasons now,” says Lions slotback and fan favourite Geroy Simon. “Having an opportunity to share our love of the game with our fans throughout B.C. is a great way to give back to our community and gives us a chance to get to know our fans too!”

PUNT, PASS & KICK Punt, Pass & Kick is a program designed to provide an opportunity for minor football players to test their skills in punting, passing and kicking while reinforcing their love of football. In 2009, the BC Lions, Tim Hortons, and BC Community Football hosted competitions in 15 districts in the Lower Mainland where players at the Flag (ages 6-7), Atom (ages 8-9), Peewee (ages 10-11) and Junior Bantam (12-13) levels had the opportunity to show off their skills and compete for an individual title. The 2010 Punt, Pass & Kick program will kick off in June, with the finals slated for the fall. For more information about the Punt, Pass & Kick program, please contact the BC Lions Football Club at 604.930.5466.

One player, one alumnus and one volunteer coach (local high school or community) are assigned per station, teaching skills such as passing, receiving, pass routes and proper running techniques. The program will continue with similar visits in 2010 with the first 2010 Play with the Pros clinic taking place on June 27 at the club’s Surrey practice facility. For more information about the Lions’ Play with the Pros program, please contact the club at 604.930.5466.

Southern Railway of British Columbia Limited is developing a Pest Management Plan and will submit the plan for registration under the Integrated Pest Management Act. This plan will describe a vegetation management and wood preservative programs using Integrated Pest Management, including the use of herbicides and pesticides to control pests and wood decay. The purpose is to control vegetation on the right of way ballast section, to address sight-line related safety issues and to control wood decay in the timber trestles. Pesticide treatment applications using Telar (chlorsulfuron) on 35 ha, Karmex DF (diuron) on 61.9 ha and Vantage/Weed-Master Glyphosate 41 (glyphosate) on 94.81 ha, to be made using truck mounted spray boom, power hose/nozzle and back pack sprayer. Non-pesticide treatment methods are mechanical brush cutting, manual brush cutting, ballast cleaning, ballast reconstruction and surfacing between New Westminster and Chilliwack; Trapp Railway Yard in New Westminster and Burnaby; Sixteenth (16th) Street Railway Yard in New Westminster, Queensboro, New Westminster and Annacis Island, Delta, annually commencing October 1, 2010 with completion on September 30, 2015. Wood preservative pesticide treatment applications using Timber Fume (chloropicrin) and CU-89-RTU (copper naphthenate) by internal insertion/injection into drilled holes in the affected members that will be tightly plugged to ensure that the pesticide does not enter into a body of water or other environmentally sensitive area. A copy of the Pest Management Plan Application and maps of the proposed treatment areas may be viewed at Southern Railway of British Columbia Limited offices at 2102 River Drive, New Westminster, B. C. or 34520 Vye Road Abbotsford, B.C. during normal working hours. A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the pest management plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the address above within 30 days of the publication of this notice.

Champions touch down

F.V. touch football season ends with a bang on Sunday CAM CUNNING

T

he cream has risen, and the victors have laid claim to the title of the top dog. On Sunday, under the warmth of the late-spring sun, four champions emerged as the Fraser Valley Touch Football League concluded its 2010 playoffs in Abbotsford. The Razorbacks, led by quarterback Hardeep Bamara, steamrolled their way to the Division One title thanks to a good old-fashioned 4839 Wild West showdown over the Iron Raiders. Bamara did his best Joe Montana impersonation, firing seven touchdown passes, including four to former SFU Clan receiver Gurdish Grewal. The Razorbacks knocked off the Steelers in the semifinal on the heels of Kyle Beauregard’s two-touchdown performance. The Division Two final may not have been the thrilling offensive duel between the ‘Backs and the Raiders, but it was just as close. Jay Gill broke the deadlock in the fourth quarter with a single point as the Spartans edged the Falcons 14-13. Despite a more defensive championship contest, the teams ran roughshod on the opposition in the semifinals. The Spartans invaded the Hammerheads with a 31-7 victory, while the Falcons outlasted the Greybeards 29-6 to advance to Sunday’s final. The Division Three final between the Ligers and the Bulls turned into

The Renegades won the semi but lost the final 20-2 to the 88’s. the Mills family highlight reel. The 10-man team features six players from the Mills family alone. This time, it was David Mills who scored three touchdowns, while brother Philip added two more as the Ligers shut out the Bulls by a score of 30-0. The two brothers also had a hand

in the Ligers 20-7 thrashing of the Bombers in the semifinal. In the Division Four final, it was the 88’s who came away victorious, rounding out the list of champions for this season. The 88’s squeaked by Furious George in the semifinal by a score of 22-19 before crushing the Renegades

20-2 for the title on Sunday. Brad Kiendl, quarterback for the 88’s, threw three touchdown passes to help clinch the championship. The FVTFL is a four-division league that features a number of former college and semi professional players. – CAM TUCKER/TIMES

The book on Cam Cunning is that everything he gets, he deserves. On Friday, the Calgary Flames, parent club to the Abbotsford Heat, announced that the rugged forward from Powell River had been resigned to a one-year deal with the organization. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Heat bench boss Jim Playfair is proud of Cunning’s decision to re-up with the organization. The question is will Cunning be back with the Heat or move up to the NHL? “I think he has a legitimate shot to move to the next level,” Playfair said Friday. “I’m proud of his development.” Soft spoken off the ice, Cunning is one of the hardest hitting and determined players on it. He had 19 goals and 38 points in 69 games this season, helping the Heat to a berth in the Calder Cup playoffs. “The big challenge for us was to make him earn his minutes,” said Playfair. – CAM TUCKER/TIMES

Rugby growing around Abbotsford CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

F

or years, the rugged sport of rugby had been biding its time in Abbotsford while other sports such as hockey, baseball and football received top recognition. Although those three sports, as well as many others, remain prevalent in our athletic backdrop, rugby is now beginning to take centre stage. It started last July when Abbotsford hosted the International Rugby Sevens competition at Rotary Stadium. The event drew thousands of spectators to Abbotsford Exhibition Park for the weekend tournament, despite summer temperatures soaring into the low 40s and a wicked thunderstorm that roared through the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland. The event also drew hundreds of rugby enthusiasts from grades 7 to 12 to a clinic put on by the Canadian team in the competition. But the recent trifecta of provincial champion-

ships earned by the Abbotsford Rugby Football Club may have further illustrated why the sport is booming. Both the men’s Division I and II teams took home a provincial title, while the women’s Division I team pulled off an upset victory over the top-ranked team from Simon Fraser University. “This was a monumental weekend,” said ARFC president Ryan McWhinney, who also added a try in the men’s Division I 45-10 triumph over Langley to claim the club’s second provincial title in three years. “This is probably the most successful season in 38 years as a club. It’s awesome.” The top two men’s teams in Abbotsford have now combined for a record of 45-0 since the 2009 fall season. “It was a good season,” said a modest McWhinney, who added jokingly that his team had to refrain from talking about the 2007-08 New England Patriots team that went 16-0 during the regular season but then lost the Super Bowl. “As a club, we’ve been building over the last

few seasons.” And given the unique connection between the rugby club and the middle and secondary schools in Abbotsford, this doesn’t seem likely to change anytime soon. McWhinney, athletic director at Fraser Middle School in Abbotsford, isn’t the only educator to be involved in coaching rugby at local schools. Doug Primrose, a counsellor at Yale Secondary, has also been involved in the sport at both the public school and club level as a coach and as a player. “We’re very fortunate that we have teachers who are members of the club coaching in schools as well,” said McWhinney. Even the Division III men’s team, which has walked in the shadow of the other two squads, came to within a win of making it to this year’s championship bout. The Robert Bateman Timberwolves girls rugby team also won this year’s Triple-A provincial title, adding to this year’s bounty of gold in the sport.

Nick Taylor will tee up in 2010 Canadian Open He won’t be at the U.S. Open, but Abbotsford’s Nick Taylor will not be denied a spot at this year’s Canadian Open when it arrives at the St. George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto on July 19 through to July 29. It will be the third appearance at the Canadian Open for Taylor, who, after winning the 2010 Ben Hogan Award last month received an exemption to this year’s event along with Eugene Wong of North Vancouver and Matt Hill of Bright’s Grove, Ont. Taylor’s best finish at the Canadian Open came in 2008 when he finished tied for 53rd. Taylor sits second on the Royal and Ancient World Amateur Golf Ranking. – STAFF REPORTER

RCMP crash ‘super lab’ 10 kg of ecstasy made at a time RAFE ARNOTT RArnott@abbotsfordtimes.com

R

CMP arrested four people after dismantling a multi-million dollar ecstasy “super lab” at a rural Abbotsford residence on Lefuevre Road May 31, police said. The illegal lab was capable of producing more than 10 kg of the drug per batch, Vancouver drug section spokesperson Sgt. Dave Goddard said. Any lab making 10 kg of ecstasy at a time – or per reaction – is tagged “super,” by the drug section, he said. RCMP drug investigators have seen 15 to 23 labs of this type per year for the last several years in British Columbia, Goddard said.
