bbotsford and Mission are among the most family-friendly cities in all of Canada. At least that’s what a report from the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada says. IMFC graded 33 of the largest cities in the country on five ‘family-friendly’ criteria, including community feel (measured by bike paths, parks and community centres), the proportion of long-time residents, how many folks donate to charity, daily commute times and livability. “Those of us who live here know that Abbotsford is a great place to live,” said Mayor George Peary. “The report gives Abbotsford a grade of ‘B’ overall, reflecting high marks in the areas of community, children and family, income levels and schooling.” The IMFC looked at the Abbotsford Census Metropolitan Area, which includes Mission.While the two communities received an ‘A’ or ‘B’ in most categories, they didn’t fare so well in two areas. The report named the Abbotsford CMA as the only city with two failing grades. One is for population stability, reflecting a relatively low number of residents who’ve lived here for five years or more. The other ‘F’ is for a high homicide rate, the highest in Canada. A number of ‘A’s pulled it up in other areas, like low income taxes and high rates of family independence. ◗ To view the entire report, go to www.imfcanada.org.

Pepin Brook opens Pe p i n B r o o k Pa r k , a three-acre parcel nestled in the Pepin Brook Estates in west Abbotsford, celebrated its official opening Thursday with city officials and residents attending. The $1-million park was built two years prior to the development of homes at Pepin Brook, and has sustainable features such as drough-resistant plants. “Creating lasting, sustainable green spaces for our families to enjoy is extremely important for o u r c o m m u n i t y,” s a i d Abbotsford mayor George Peary. “Water conservation [is] an important factor in the development of new parks in our city.” Abbosford worked with Pepin Brook developer Ewen Stewart of Azura Ma n a g e m e n t Co r p. t o complete the park as quickly as possible.

Battery died, family fights an ‘injustice’ KENT SPENCER The Province

bbotsford mom Judith Jarabek-Gray died because gover nment caregivers let the battery run out on her ventilator — and her family can’t do anything about it. “It’s not right. I don’t want my mother to be the guinea pig here — and she was,” daughter Melissa Jarabek said Sunday. She said staff’s primary job at the CareLife Fleetwood facility in Surrey, a subsidiary of the Fraser Health Authority, is to “take care of people on ventilators.” “The irony is they forgot to plug the ventilator in. Obviously they weren’t operating to the standards they should have,” she said. Jarabek has discovered in the past several months that Fraser Health can’t be held accountable under the law. She said the Family Compensation Act in B.C. does not permit people to seek justice for pain and suffering in cases like her mother’s. “The law allows for people to be negligently killed and there’s no recourse,” she said. No financial compensation can be obtained either, because Jarabek-Gray, 61, was not earning a wage at the time. Jarabek said injustice has been piled on injustice. “There is no culpability. I’m not okay with that,” she said. Marg Fraser, assisted living program director for Fraser Health, admitted mistakes were made in a letter to Jarabek-Gray’s husband Allen Gray on May 4. Fraser said procedures have since changed, staff training improved and new equipment purchased. “As a healthcare organization, we are committed to learning from our system and process failures,” she said. Fraser said in the future “staff will be required

Weekend robberies RAFE ARNOTT RArnott@abbotsfordtimes.com

P

olice are investigating two armed robberies that occurred over the weekend in the Abbotsford area. The first took place at a convenience store in the 2100 block of McKenzie Road on Saturday around 5 p.m., APD Const. Ian MacDonald said. A Caucasian male, 20 to 30 years old, with a slender build wearing a blue ball cap, sunglasses and a lightcoloured jacket entered the store and indicated to the clerk he was armed and demanded two cartons of cigarettes. “The clerk was quite alert and she called for assistance right away,” MacDonald said. The thief then jumped into a grey, late model

sedan driven by a second individual. The second robbery involved an Abbotsford man being assaulted and robbed at gunpoint by two men, and occurred around 2 a.m. Sunday in the 32100 block of Marshall Road. MacDonald said despite the late hour of the incident, police had an eyewitness. “Were talking with the witness, the victim, and looking for security footage from different businesses in the area,” he said. The men are reported to have fled the scene in a green or blue, mid-’90s sedan. Both suspects are white males with short hair. One has a shaved head and wore a balaclava over his face, was about 5’ 8” tall and of medium build. The second was described as chubby, more than six feet tall and clean-shaven, MacDonald said. Anyone with information about either of these crimes is asked to contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

to demonstrate competence in ventilator operation and standards.” Jarabek said her mother’s tragic death could have been prevented if caregivers had been paying attention on Jan. 21. After just 16 days at the $6,000 per month facility, her mother was finally settling in, despite a tiring fight with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). At 3:30 p.m., she taken off her bed ventilator, which was supplied with continuous power by a wall socket, and moved to a chair ventilator, attached to a battery. Returned to the bed one hour later, she remained attached to the chair unit, whose battery had a six-hour life span. Jarabek said staff visited “eight or nine” times in the next several hours, but “not one picked up on the fact” she was on the wrong ventilator. Attendants did not hear a low-volume alarm going off four separate times over a three-hour period. The noise was so low that her husband, who was visiting, didn’t hear it. “The alarm system had a quiet warning sound in battery mode and the alarm was an intermittent beep versus a continuous alarm,” said Fraser. Fraser said a staffer “lacked an understanding” that the chair alarm could be connected to a call bell system, which would have notified staff of low batteries. Jarabek said Fraser Health saved money by buying a cheaper chair ventilator without a loud alarm function. Jarabek-Gray passed away at 11:15 p.m., one hour after her husband left for the evening. Jarabek believes attendants and managers would have done a better job if they knew that they would be held accountable. “This has destroyed my brothers and stepfather. Unfortunately when you’re dealing with big [government-owned] corporations like Fraser Heath, the bottom line is money. They can say sorry all they want, but the only way to make them accountable is money. My mother died alone. She was just another number.”

Wanted men are The difference between organized crime and gangs still on the loose Vetting process ensures loyalty, respect, silence RAFE ARNOTT RArnott@abbotsfordtimes.com

L

ower Mainland gangs would do well to take a page from the Hells Angels handbook, gang experts and police are saying. The Hells Angels maintains integrity and loyalty within its ranks by carefully screening its members, according to Darryl Plecas, a professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of the Fraser Valley.

“It’s a tenuous loyalty. Someone may participate with a group today and find the grass is greener with another group and jump the fence.” – RCMP Sgt. Shinder Kirk

Incorporating HA-type philosophies to avoid transient members from flitting from gang to gang could benefit local criminal organizations, Plecas said. Gang members are looking only for money and offering little to no allegiance, he added. “There is a process you go through [in the HA], it is long enough that people at the senior levels have more than enough opportunity to see what [new members] are like. “Generally, that has worked extremely

well for them,” Plecas said. The average age of a Hells Angel member in B.C. is 53 years old, and that member, on average, has been a Hells Angel for 17 years. More than enough time to cement relationships, build trust and create a bond as strong as family, Plecas said, which makes it difficult for police to find a weakness in the gang’s armour. “Well, crack that one. “It’s a wildly different situation than we have in these other groups . . . these Lower Mainland gangs, I would still call them wannabes,” Plecas said. That screening process, he said – like much of British Columbia’s urban gang leadership – is nowhere in sight. Many local gangs have had their upper ranks gutted through inter-and intra-gang murders, or members turning snitch, and ratting out associates to law enforcement in order to save their own skin, police said. None of the Lower Mainland’s loosely-affiliated crime syndicates has implemented serious “apprenticeships” for individuals looking to join their ranks, because they haven’t been around long enough, RCMP Integrated Gang Task Force member Sgt. Shinder Kirk said. Gangs like the Independent Soldiers, and the United Nations, he said, are plagued by the fundamental problem of having no history, and little, if any, stable internal structure. “There is a substantial difference between gangs and organized crime,” Kirk said.

“Organized crime has been around for a substantially longer period of time . . . you must serve that apprenticeship period before you can be confirmed as a member.” Kirk said when it comes to organizations like the Hells Angels, it is less about one being able to commit criminal acts, and more about whether one is worthy of being a member. A dynamic, he previously spoke about, that is reversed in urban gangs like the Red Scorpions or the Empire gang, where joining a crew is based on one’s ability to move drugs, provide muscle or run a diala-dope operation. “It’s a tenuous loyalty. Someone may participate with a group today and find the grass is greener with another group and jump the fence,” he said. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said geography also plays a role in long-standing criminal organizations like the Hells Angels, as they have their roots outside of Canada and are considered international players. The Hells Angels, he said, is very different from the smaller gangs running lines throughout Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. “These are middle-class gangs that have formed in the suburbs,” MacDonald said, where rising through the ranks is based more on what you bring to the table. “[ Where HA is concerned] you would not automatically gain membership because you moved product or helped them with muscle or enforcement one day.”

n Abbotsford Secondary grad will soak up the experience of a lifetime when she represents British Columbia at the G8/ G20 summits in Toronto and Muskoka this weekend. “It’ll be incredible to meet all those people and talk with the world leaders and their representatives. It’ll be great to represent Abbotsford,” said Amani Saini, who also has a University of B.C. political science and Canadian studies bachelor’s degree.

“It was at that moment in 2004, that I realized that although [Canada is not] on the [United Nations] Security Council, as a middle power we can still have an impact on the world.” – Amani Saini

Saini, 24, flew to Toronto early this morning where she will attend the official international youth summit, My Summits 2010. She is one of 13 youth ambassadors, one from each province and territory, chosen from 100 accomplished young Canadians at the G8/G20 National Youth Caucus in Ottawa in May. The G8 is comprised of the world’s top economic powerhouses, which control over half of the globe’s financial resources. The G20 are the world’s top industrial nations, and their focus will be on the global economy.

New water meters smarten up PAUL FONTAINE editorial@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

bbotsford is putting in a new smart metering system this month to cut down on water usage. This is the city’s third water meter installation in the last 16 years. The first was in 1994 in the former District of Abbotsford, and then there was the installation of touch meters in 1997 in west Abbotsford. The new meters were funded with a contribution of $1.27 million from the gas tax fund, which is a joint fund from federal and provincial governments, along with the Union of British Columbia Municipalities.

The new advanced metering system records use hourly and then transmits the records to city hall daily. The meters save water by detecting leaks faster, and by monitoring water use more closely, the city’s hope is that those who use too much will cut down when they see their bill. The new system, which started to get put in this month, won’t be applied to all of the city’s meters, only the more dated ones, said city officials. Katherine Jeffcoat, manager of communications for the City of Abbotsford, said water shortages will be a problem for years to come. “Abbotsford is facing water supply challenges over the next few years and

eration and climate change. At the conclusion, they will compose a youth communiqué, which the delegation will deliver to the G8/G20 leaders at the summits. At the G20, youth delegates will also have the opportunity to sit in some closed-door meetings with global leaders. Saini will promote B.C. as a significant economic gateway to the emerging Asian powerhouses, but her passions are rooted in social issues. Her interest in this area began in 2002, when as a high school student she attended a Red Cross global issues symposium. Her interest was underscored when in 2003, Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan were beginning to die from land mines. “It really hit home for me in 2003. I realized that every problem we perceive to be a global issue, is really a local issue,” she said. In 2004, Saini attended an international land mine conference in Japan, where the Canadian delegates were called to the stage to accept an honour on Canada’s behalf for its work in establishing an international land mines treaty. “It was at that moment in 2004, that I realized that although [Canada is not] on the [United Nations] Security Council, as a middle power we can still have an impact on the world,” said Saini, who continues to be involved in the Red Cross land mines campaign. After the summits, she’ll be choosing which law school to attend, “most definitely in Canada,” to study Canadian constitutional law and international law.

bbotsford Police arrested a 30-year-old man and 25-year-old woman after they allegedly strong-armed a woman for cash while she sat in her car on Saturday night. “She was parking her car. They basically got into her vehicle and demanded money,” Const. Ian MacDonald said. The incident took place on South Fraser Way near Langdon Street. The pair face charges of robbery and assault with a weapon, with a breach of probation charge leveled against the male suspect, MacDonald said. Both are known to police for similar incidents. Officers arrested the pair without incident with help from the K-9 Unit.

conservation is essential for preventing water shortages until a new water source is brought on line, which will likely be in 2016,” Jeffcoat said. Because the meters can be read remotely, city employees won’t have to go on site to monitor them manually. An indication of the water worries in Abbotsford was conveyed with the bylaw banning charity car washes recently reported in the Times. To aid their water conservation efforts, the Abbotsford-Mission Water SC has just launched a website to help educate residents with water-saving tips for home and business and sprinkling regulations. ◗ See www.ourwatermatters.ca.

What’s next in our schools?

A

re big changes to our public education system just around the corner? Speculation is growing in the wake of the B.C. Liberal government’s fight with the Vancouver school board that something new is coming. Certainly, the B.C. Liberals have spent years talking about the need for change in the K-12 system. Pretty well every throne speech contains language suggesting significant change is on the way. But aside from the introduction of all-day kindergarten, nothing particularly revolutionary has occurred in the education system. The Liberals made a big fuss unveiling such things as the “learning roundtable” and “teachers’ congress” but they don’t seem to have had much lasting impact on things. For possible clues on what may be coming, I dusted off this year’s throne speech and re-read the section on public education. Certainly, the language in that speech does suggest something is in the works. “Government will take steps to renew and revitalize education,” the speech stated, adding that a “new emphasis will be placed on parental involvement.” The speech also stated that “new forms of schools will be developed to provide greater choice and diversity.” I suppose these promises can be read as so much empty government rhetoric. On the

KEITH BALDREY

From the Ledge other hand, given the evident frustration over the conduct of the Vancouver school board the language can also be seen as suggesting provocative change. Part of the backdrop here is the often testy relationship between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Liberal government. Gordon Campbell is married to a long-time former school principal, and anyone who knows a school principal knows the frustrations many of them feel when it comes to dealing with teachers (in terms of the rigid control the BCTF exerts over the workplace). So he’s had years to become familiar on that front. Another important factor to consider here is the recent report by the province’s comptroller-general on the Vancouver school board’s financial situation. Comptroller-general Cheryl Wenezenki-Yolland portrays the Vancouver school board as operating within a governance model that is largely controlled by the employees who work for it (i.e. teachers and CUPE support staff workers). As a result, flexibility and the ability to change policies are greatly hampered. While there has been a lot

of attention paid to the war of words between Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid and VSB chair Patti Bacchus, a key phrase from the minister has been overlooked. She has talked about the need for a new “governance model” and how she will develop one soon. A new model is going to have a more profound impact on our system than closing a few schools or squabbling over a school board’s budget. So what, exactly, is the B.C. Liberal government up to? It can be argued that the B.C. Liberals, given their very low standing in the polls, do not have the political credibility or muscle to carry out big changes on any front. But they wouldn’t be the first government to go down swinging over an issue it considers important enough. Oh, and have I mentioned the BCTF will soon enter negotiations for a new contract? The teachers’ union has said it won’t accept a wage freeze like other public sector unions, so a fight is brewing on that front as well. Perhaps that’s the one thing – a contract battle with teachers — that won’t change in education. But it sure seems likely that “21st century learning” means other changes are on the way. ■ Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC. Contact him at KBaldrey@globaltv.com.

his can be a tough time of year for young drivers. There are many dangerous temptations around graduation time. Spirits are high at the “coming of age” that graduation represents, creating a heady atmosphere that tends to weigh down on gas pedals and push toward exuberant speeds. It’s also tempting to fortify those high spirits with alcohol – something that was not long ago considered a natural rite of passage. Statistics show that teens still represent a significant portion of alcohol-related problems on our roadways. While less than seven per cent of drivers are between 16 and 20 years of age, they were responsible for 15 per cent of all alcohol-related crashes in 2007, and the vast majority of those were 17 and 18 years old – prime graduating age. Only the 21 to 25 age group had a higher representation within the crash statistics that year. And as we’re pointing to the graduation theme, it probably will be no surprise to learn that June is the worst month of the year for alcohol-related crashes. We don’t want to be a drag on graduation celebrations. Quite the contrary, we’d like to see every last grad make it through the month, through the summer, and deep into the rich and interesting future that should await them. That’s why we applaud any and all students who work towards dry grads and safe celebrations. By all means celebrate – graduation is an important milestone along the road through life. But there are many more and possibly greater milestones ahead for those who have the sense to temper their celebrations with a bit of responsibility.

THE TIMES TUESDAY, JUNE 22, 2010 ❘

Wow. I can’t believe the lack of insight that has been displayed in the printing of this story (Walking in heels of budget, June 18). Both the Abbotsford Times and Kim Hay have put Kaden at serious risk by publicly broadcasting that a six-yearold boy will be available for anyone to pickup twice a day. “Come one, come all pedophiles and sex traders, just offer the boy a ride and he’s yours.” How dumb can you get and still breathe? Kim Hay is obviously aware of some of the dangers, as she pointed them out. But what kind of value is placed on Kaden compared to her business? If Kaden meets with harms way it will be more then “financial hardships” that she will have to deal with. No business should take precedent over a child’s safety. Hay said she, “wouldn’t be able to drive or walk with Kaden…” which means she can. What’s $30 a month or a few minutes a day of the business if it means a child’s safety? Both Hay and the Times will be responsible should any harm come to Kaden, not the Ministry of Education. Perhaps Children’s Services would like to give Kaden a ride. Scott Calder Abbotsford

Driving home public transportation issues Editor, the Times:

Here in Abbotsford we spend a good chunk of money on our public transit system. This amount has received criticism, but is warranted when one considers our increasing costs of managing congestion

(witness the amount of money we are spending to upgrade our interchanges), and the amount of money we spend individually to keep personal vehicles on the road. When I drove, I could easily imagine spending a GRIM (Gas, Repairs, Insurance, Maintenance) $500 on my car each month (if I’d had a decent car). Multiply that by the minimum 50,000 people who pay those costs in Abbotsford, and you have $25 million spent each month on private transportation, orders of magnitude more than we spend on public transportation. Imagine the kind of transportation we could have if we spent almost $300 million on public transportation annually, like we do now on private vehicles. The only need for personal vehicles would be when we wanted to go for a pleasure cruise or climb a logging road. Even those are arguably more rewarding on foot. For comparison’s sake, the number I’ve heard floating around for public spending on transportation is around $10 million annually. Think about that. How can Abbotsford improve? For one, it’s completely ridiculous to not have service to the Airport, a major destination for which transit service is just a nobrainer when you consider how convenient it would be for travellers not have to find parking or search for a carpool.

Two, it’s frustrating as all heck to sit idling for five or more minutes at the Bourquin Transfer station. If the buses need a time cushion to enable them to be on time during busy periods, for heaven’s sake don’t make that time cushion in the middle of the route – make it at the end of the line. Three, follow the advice of Pacific Northwest thinktank the Sightline Institute (Towards More Efficient Bus Service, June 11, 2010). Consider cutting back some “milk-routes” that attract little ridership, and focus resources on neighbourhoods where the residents use public transit already. Get more bang for the same buck using economic incentives to improve transit service. Consider the words of William Clay Ford Jr., CEO of Ford Motor Company: “If you live in a city, you don’t need to own a car.” Daniel van der Kroon Abbotsford

importer indeed. The question of whether B.C. is a net importer or net exporter of electricity recently attracted the attention of Professor George Hoberg of UBC’s Department of Forest Resources Management. Professor Hoberg delved into the question — reviewing all of the available technical data — and from an objective academic perspective determined that B.C. as a whole is now a two per cent net importer of electricity. That net percentage is even greater for BC Hydro; and according to BC Hydro’s annual reports, last year was the ninth year out of the past 10 years in which BC Hydro has been a net importer of electricity, with all indications pointing to this year being yet another net importation year for BC Hydro. B.C. can only be seen as a five per cent “net exporter” of electricity — as Professor Hoberg determined in his analysis — if you lump in B.C.’s share of the electricity generated in the USA under the Columbia River Treaty along the Columbia River system. The bottom line is that we need to build more electricity generating capacity in this province and we need to do so in a way that causes the least environmental impact. In the view of our group, B.C. Citizens for Green Energy, the private sector and independent producers have a big role to play in meeting our province’s need for clean, renewable electricity and accomplishing it with the least possible environmental impact.

Lions proud of their commitment to excellence on and off the field

A

s an organization with roots in the local community dating back to 1954, the BC Lions are proud of their commitment to excellence on and off the field. Through a number of initiatives aimed at giving back to communities throughout British Columbia, the Leos are dedicated to making a difference at the local level, attending more than 125 events and involving more than 350 total appearances last season alone. In 2009, more than 4,500 items were donated to at least 550 charitable organizations and sponsors, particularly those focused on youth, education and the development of grassroots football in the province. Several initiatives take place at Lions home games throughout the season to raise money for the Lions’ community partners.

EVERY YARD COUNTS In 2010, the BC Lions will continue to partner with BC Children’s Hospital for the Every Yard Counts program, which provides an opportunity for children receiving ongoing medical treatment to attend a BC Lions home game. In addition to experiencing the excitement and emotion of a CFL game, the children also have an opportunity to meet their football heroes faceto-face.

50/50 DRAW AT BC LIONS HOME GAMES Last season, sales from 50/50 tickets at BC Lions home games helped raise more than $155,000 for junior football in British Columbia. In 2010, the BC Lions 50/50 draw will continue to support junior football, while contributing funds to Football BC, the BC Secondary School Football Association and the BC Community Football Association.

In 2010, the BC Lions will once again team up with Purolator to tackle hunger on Aug. 7 when the BC Lions host the Calgary Stampeders at Empire Field. Don’t forget to bring your donation on game night.

UNITED WAY OF THE LOWER MAINLAND & COURAGE FOR KIDS PROGRAM The BC Lions Football Club is pleased to partner with the United Way of the Lower Mainland for the Courage For Kids program. The BC Lions Courage For Kids program enables less fortunate children and their families to attend a Lions football game at Empire Field. In 2009, more than 10,000 tickets were donated through this initiative, which was made possible by the generosity of our Courage For Kids corporate pa r tn e r s a nd th e U n i te d Way of th e Lowe r Mainland.

BC LIONS TACKLE HUNGER Each year, the BC Lions and Purolator team up to “Tackle Hunger” at one home game during the season. On this special night, Lions fans are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item and/or a cash donation to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.

BC LIONS CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC Last season, the annual BC Lions Charity Golf Classic helped raise more than $70,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation and the BC Lions Courage for Kids program in 2009.

Featuring live music, food, face painting, inflatable games, Felions appearances and much more, the Street Party donates all proceeds to the club’s Lions Share partners.

Keep an eye out for proper sun protection Follow these tips to avoid burns in places you never imagined possible PAUL FONTAINE editorial@abbotsfordtimes.com

C

ountless times I have come home from a trip to a tropical destination, or even a local beach, and dreaded that first unknowing slap on my back. It is that pain that has always made me fear the sun.

It is like I was born with this belief that even though my skin is as white as snow, I won’t burn when exposed to the sun. After years of this and a recent trip where not only my skin, but also my eyes were exposed to too much sun, I decided to find some tips for my own good and

for the good of those other fair-skinned people, who love lying on the beach. The first and most important tip I found was: Don’t put on too much sunscreen When you read SPF it stands for “sun protection factor.” Some people believe it stands for “sun-proofing factor,” which is not the case. The second piece of advice I found useful was.

Allergy Relief

It’s not necessarily the SPF that helps you not to burn For example, just because you put in SPF 30 sunscreen, it doesn’t mean you are being proactive. More important is the amount of sunscreen you put on. A good amount I found was a shot-glass worth of sunscreen. If you are using a spray–on sunscreen, then keep putting it on until it isn’t being absorbed as easily. Put sunscreen on before being exposed to the sun & reapply every couple hours Sunscreen has ingredients that take some time to get into your skin, so don’t put it on as you are laying your blanket on the sand. The last piece of information I found was that the ingredients decrease in effectiveness over time. Sunscreen isn’t like wine; it doesn’t get better with age. If your stock is old, hit your local pharmacy to pick up a new bottle. Now time to turn our attention to your peepers. Eyes need to be protected from the sun at all times. Unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can increase the risk

With the sun’s eventual return, take a careful look at how you protect yourself in the great outdoors. of developing cataracts and damaging the retina, which could lead to total blindness. The longer your eyes are exposed to UV radiation, the greater the risk of developing conditions later in life. Sunglasses are the way to go when protecting your eyes from the sun. Choose a pair that offers more than 95 percent UV protection. Also, choose a lens tint that blocks 80 percent of transmissible light, but no more than 90-92 percent of light because lens tint does not protect you from UV rays,

and can affect your ability to see correctly. Large lenses that fit close to the eyes are best. The sun is a great thing in the summer and casts a flattering light on B.C. so its residents can make it through the rainy months with smiles on their faces. Now that you have the information, feel free to enjoy that life-giving orb at home or abroad.

Local company develops new product for macular degeneration when compared to the leading recommended brand, will save the patient as must as 40% per year.

Dietary supplements are not a cure for AMD. They will not restore vision already lost from the disease. However, recent studies focused on the effect of daily supplements showed a reduced risk of developing advanced AMD by as much as 28%.

protecting against AMD and dry eye syndrome, they also protect against cardiovascular disease, reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, cognitive decline and rheumatoid arthritis. It is a natural inflammatory. Recommended dosage - 1000 mg per day containing EPA 400 mg and DHA 300 mg.

Gord and Linda also felt there was a need for a separate Omega-3 product after discovering that many of their friends and family were taking the wrong formulation. Omega-3 is severely deficient in most of our western diets and a daily supplement is highly recommended for all adults by most doctors.

These products are professional products only and are available through optometric offices or by contacting ProMed Services directly at: 1-888-851-0009 or through their website www.promedservices.ca.

ProMed Services is a local Abbotsford company dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of ocular health. ProMed was started in 2000 by Gord Berti and his wife Linda. Gord has been in the optical business for over 25 years. Since starting their own company they have represented various optical companies promoting surgical supplies for cataract surgery, corneal transplants, glaucoma and the treatment of dry eye syndrome. About 3 years ago they started working on the development of a new dietary supplement for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in people over 60 and affects millions of individuals. It is a disease that destroys your sharp, central vision. You need central vision to see objects clearly and to do tasks such as reading and driving. Even though it affects the older population there is now proof that young adults who show or have some of the early risk factors can benefit by taking precautionary steps now. In some cases, AMD advances so slowly that people notice little change in their vision. In others, the disease progresses faster and may lead to a loss of vision in both eyes. ProMed Services strongly recommends that people have annual eye exams by qualified eye doctors. ProMed’s development of a product for AMD was strongly influenced by the fact that both Gord and Linda’s families have had members who suffered from the disease. “We want to offer the patient something better than what is available on the market today at a very competitive price” says Gord.

ProMed’s two new products are: MACULA 2™ ESSENTIALS: Provides the eye with vitamins and minerals that are the essential antioxidant substances that work together to protect the sensitive structures of the eye from oxidation. MACULA 2™ OMEGA-3: These are the fatty acid building blocks of the eye’s retina and the brain. As well as

Gord and Linda welcome your questions and feedback.

Summer food safety Take care of those seasonal favourites (NC)—You can never be too careful with outdoor meals at this time of year. Lots of sunshine and heat can easily turn picnics and barbecues into a breeding ground for harmful bacteria, such as salmonella—and nothing spoils summer fun faster than a dose of food poisoning. “Our testing for gastro-intestinal related illness does increase somewhat during the barbecue season,” says Dr. Doug Tkachuk at LifeLabs, a leading diagnostic test centre. “So we can’t over emphasize how important it is to handle, wash, and prepare food with those cautions in mind.” Here are some LifeLabs food safety tips: • Wash hands often during meal preparation to prevent bacteria from spreading. • When using a cooler, separate raw meat from ready-to-eat foods, including vegetables, to prevent cross-contamination. • Keep hot food hot and cold food cold. Cover hot foods such as steak, chicken or hot dogs in foil to retain heat and eat them right away.

Even melons need to be properly looked after. eter after using it.

• Use a clean plate when taking food off the grill. Remember not to put cooked food on the same plate that held raw meat. • Melon is a favourite summer fruit but it is at greater risk of contamination due to its netted rind. Be sure to wash the surface thoroughly before cutting.. Do not leave cut melons at room temperature for more than two hours.

• Cold foods should stay chilled at 4° C or below. Promptly refrigerate any food you plan to save for the next day.

• Food items prepared with mayonnaise, or those high in protein should be chilled until served and as soon as possible again, after. Don’t let them sit in the direct sunshine. Bacteria multiplies easily in moist foods and warm conditions

• Cook your meats, fish and poultry thoroughly and use a thermometer to ensure they have reached the proper cooked temperature. Clean the thermom-

• Always keep food out of the temperature danger zone of 4° C to 60° C that bacteria can grow. After only two hours in this temperature range food can become dangerous.

Dog days of summer

Fast quick to support Bill C-39

Red Cross help needed

Attention all canines. June 26 is the day to bring your owners out to Dog Days of Summer, an event to celebrate barking, sniffing, wagging and all things canine related. It’s all happening at Aldergrove Lake Regional Park from 10 a.m. to noon. Pups and people will enjoy various shows in the theatre tent such as co-existing with coyotes (Stanley Park Ecology Society); dogs and salmon (Langley Environmental Partners Society); question and answer with a park officer and the best dressed dog parade. In the demonstration area, watch agility and tricks by K-9 Incredibles, search dog demonstrations by the BC Search Dog Association and try various free mini-obedience classes. For more information contact Metro Vancouver Regional Parks at 604-530-4983 or visit the event calendar at www.metrovancouver.org.

Abbotsford MP Ed Fast voiced his strong support for Bill C-39, a new law tabled in the House of Commons which will abolish the current system of accelerated parole review. Presently, the law allows non-violent but dangerous fenders such as drug lords and fraudsters to obtain day parole after serving just one-sixth of their sentence and full parole after serving one-third. “We believe that the prison and parole system should put public safety first,” said Fast, who chairs the Standing Committee on Justice & Human Rights in Ottawa. “The punishment should fit the crime, and the rights of criminals should not come ahead of the rights of victims and law-abiding citizens.” The proposed amendments would also make the protection of society the paramount principle of the system and provide victims with the right to be informed and participate in parole board hearings.

The Abbotsford Red Cross loan service is looking for volunteers to help out in its Abbotsford office. Regular weekly shifts or on-call spaces are available for men or women. Volunteers greet clients, process equipment loans, receive equipment being returned, and sanitize equipment after use. Training is provided. The depot is open Monday to Saturday (excluding holidays) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. To book an interview or to pick up an application form, stop by the depot at 2316 McCallum Rd., Abbotsford, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., or call Peg Wenting at 604850-2901.

Contestants were asked to share their love stories explaining how they met and a bit about their prematrimonial journey in 500 words or less, for a chance to win 200 cupcakes for their wedding day. Katie’s story spanned more than a decade and included a proposal at Tracycakes complete with a cupcake topped with an engagement ring.

School is out for summer . . . But memories will last forever

CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

S

ummer. The season certainly stirs emotions in high school students around Abbotsford and Mission. Most grew physically, emotionally and intellectually. Goals were set, met and exceeded. High watermarks made for soaring souls, while crashing defeats left countless athletes with more questions than answers. Still, they pushed on – and because of that the 2009-2010 high school calendar provided us with memories only made at the last pure level of high-caliber amateur sports. Here’s a look back at some of those magical moments. ■ Cam Bedore, quarterback of the W.J. Mouat Hawks varsity football team, sat with his head in his hands, buried between his legs on the cold, damp turf of McLeod Athletic Park in Langley. His pose was that of any athlete who had just given everything he had, and then some, but came up just short of championship glory. The Hawks lost the 2009 Subway Bowl to the Centennial Centaurs by a score of 39-36 in one of the most exciting provincial high school football championship games in recent years. Bedore, who will return to the Hawks in September for his Grade 12 year, took a beating all game, but like the rest of his team who followed, he did not back down. “It was a gutsy effort by our kids and I’m very proud of them,” said head coach Denis Kelly. ■ Marek Klassen may never have wanted to admit it, but he had a lot of living-up to do in his final season with the Yale Lions boy’s basketball team. Two years ago, his older brother Caleb won the B.C. Boys High School Triple-A basketball championships with the Lions while Marek sat on the bench as a Grade 10. This year, Marek led the 2009-2010 edition of the Yale Lions to a provincial title. He scored a game-high 25 points as Yale came back from an 11-point deficit at the half to beat White Rock Christian Academy 49-40, and was named Player of the Game and the tourney’s Most Valuable Player. “At halftime, Marek stood up and said ‘no, this can’t be. We’re not stopping here, we’re not quitting, we have to play, we’re better than they are and it’s time that we showed it,’ said head coach Al Friesen. ■ There’s tough and then there’s the Robert Bateman Timberwolves girl’s rugby team. The T-Wolves went 15-0-1 this season, winning the Triple-A girl’s rugby championship by a score of 8-3 in double overtime over Shawnigan Lake on a drizzly May 29. The victory, courtesy of a Madi Blakeburn try in double OT, instantaneously gave the team celebrity status at the school the following Monday. It also rid the team of two straight third place finishes in the province. “It was the toughest game of the year and either you respond you don’t respond and our girls responded,” said head coach Jeff Dods. ■ W.J. Mouat Grade 9 track and field star Alex Siemens is to be commended for her bronze medal in the girl’s 3,000-metre race at the provincial high school track meet earlier this month in Burnaby, but that wasn’t her best moment. That came in the 1,500-metre event when she was inadvertently pushed to the ground, scrap-

Olympians power though at swim meet Swimmers from Abbotsford Olympians Swim Club took part in the L/A OSC Intra Club meet at Walnut Grove Pool in Langley last week with many swimmers coming away with new best times. Tobyn Smith (6) placed third in the girls 12 and under 300 metre free, taking 44 seconds off her best time; first in the eight and under 50m free, 50m breast and 50m back and fifth in the 10 and under 200m IM, slashing her previous best time by over 21 seconds. Elana Huget (10) competing in her first swim meet came away with two first places in the 10/under 25m breast and 25m free; Alina Blakey (8) was second in the eight and under 100m IM, second in the 10/under 50m free and 50m breast; Julia Couto (8) placed second in the eight and under 50m back, 25m butterfly and third in the 10/under 25m back; Madison Ashton (10) was first in the 10/under 25m butterfly; Perin Peter (7) finished second in the boys eight and under 100m IM, third in eight and under 50m breast and fourth in the eight and under 50m free. Jada Wiebe (10) achieved 100 per cent best times in all six of her races. Trevor Yong (14) broke the AOSC 100m free club record in a new time of 1:12.47. Other swimmers setting new best times were Jessica Quiring, Jensen Pakosh, Peyton Smith, Jayme Reitsma, Alex Simpson, David Hiebert, Matthew Hiebert, Brittany Fladager, Cassie Bergen, Calvin Crozier and Nate Ansell. Swimmers competing in their first swim meet were, Alice Couto, Bridget Jeske, Gabriel Jeske and Sophia Tzeng.

ping her knees against the rough surface of the track. But when it looked like she might not make it back to her feet, Siemens rose up and finished the race. When it was over, she collapsed to one knee in tears. “When most kids would’ve quit, she got right back up and not only finished the race, but caught up and got back in it. The kid has heart,” said Hawks’ track and field coach Cam Smith. ■ The M.E.I. boy’s and girl’s volleyball teams have cemented themselves as a local dynasty within the sport. The girl’s team won the Triple-A provincials after losing in the final last year. It was the third time

since 2005 the girl’s team made it to the finals. The boy’s team collected its seventh – yes, seventh – title in the past eight years. “It feels great, it’s really exciting,” said girl’s coach Rachel Neufeld. And truly, a great season for his players – and all local athletes – to be extremely proud of.

Pugilists training for world championships Club looking for donations to make dreams a reality CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

– SUBMITTED PHOTO/FOR THE TIMES

Mission City Boxing Club pugilists Cody Brown, in front, and back row from left Fred Jones, Daniel Joseph, Jessy Brown, Mike Nelson and Sean McIntosh are off to training camp in the U.S.

oach Dale Gatin described it as the trip of a lifetime. Nine of his young pugilists from the Mission City Boxing Club will be heading down to the U.S. this summer to attend and compete at this year’s Ringside World Championships in Kansas City, Mo., but not before seven from the club will attend a four-week training camp with Keith Reed, a renowned boxing coach stationed out of Tulsa, Okla. Gatin wasted no time reminding both the public and the seven headed stateside for the training camp that this is not a vacation, but an opportunity for the athletes to improve in all areas of life. “The kids are going to stay down there

with him and train six hours a day, six days a week,” said Gatin. “It should be a great experience.” But because the cost to send seven kids to the U.S. is roughly $2,000 per athlete and the Mission City Boxing Club is a non-profit organization, Gatin and his boxers are asking the public for donations. He added that there will be a tax receipt provided for people who donate. Gatin said the goal will be to raise about $6,000 in donations to help families who cannot pay for the trip themselves to send their kid to this camp. “I think it will be a trip of a lifetime for them,” he said. “I wish when I was a kid I had the opportunity to do this and I think the skills the kids will learn are not just boxing skills, but life skills. “They’ll be learning about discipline and helping their self esteem and it’s something they can always go back on.” ◗ People interested in making a donation can contact Gatin at 604-826-1455 or check out www.missionboxing.com.

Still, report gives two failing grades

bbotsford and Mission are among the most family-friendly cities in all of Canada. At least that’s what a report from the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada says. IMFC graded 33 of the largest cities in the country on five ‘family-friendly’ criteria, including community feel (measured by bike paths, parks and community centres), the proportion of long-time residents, how many folks donate to charity, daily commute times and livability. “Those of us who live here know that Abbotsford is a great place to live,” said Mayor George Peary. “The report gives Abbotsford a grade of ‘B’ overall, reflecting high marks in the areas of community, children and family, income levels and schooling.” The IMFC looked at the Abbotsford Census Metropolitan Area, which includes Mission.While the two communities received an ‘A’ or ‘B’ in most categories, they didn’t fare so well in two areas. The report named the Abbotsford CMA as the only city with two failing grades. One is for population stability, reflecting a relatively low number of residents who’ve lived here for five years or more. The other ‘F’ is for a high homicide rate, the highest in Canada. A number of ‘A’s pulled it up in other areas, like low income taxes and high rates of family independence. ◗ To view the entire report, go to www.imfcanada.org.
