“Being in the position where you owe no one any favours is precisely the right position for a premier to be in.” – MLA Mike de Jong

Speaking at a Liberal fundraising breakfast at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre, de Jong said liberal members should look to select the candidate best suited to pitch British Columbia and what it’s got to offer, and best ready to wage the next election with the NDP. “Who’s got the vision? Who’s got the idea we want to be as British Columbians?” asked de Jong. “We are preparing for electoral battle . . . who is going to be general of that battle? see LEADERSHIP, page A14

wo important traffic infrastructure projects in Abbotsford are driving forward in the immediate future. The Whatcom Road Connector is due to open mid-February, despite some hiccups, while the Marshall Road Extension is about to move forward. The city will have to pay an extra $500,000 for the Whatcom Road

First reported @

abbotsfordtimes.com project due to problems caused by bad weather and unforeseen environmental conditions. The high-traffic connector from Sandringham Drive to Westview Boulevard punches through a route over Sumas Mountain, and links existing and proposed residential developments on the south and north sides of the mountain. It will also provide easier, quicker access to Highway 1 for resi-

dents north of Sumas Mountain, particularly along the McKee Road corridor. The city is forking out an extra $494,803, plus HST, for the project. Excessive groundwater seepage, unstable rock formations, topsoil issues, and changes to BC Hydro, Telus and Shaw ducting pushed costs up $286,800.

ne Abbotsford teenager has died and another clings to life in hospital following a serious crash just southeast of the Mission Bridge on Sunday afternoon. “The crash is a tragedy. These two young women are from the community of Abbotsford,” said Abbotsford Police spokesman Const. IanMacDonald. The two young women were trapped in the wreckage after colliding with a tree and had to be extracted through the car’s roof with the Jaws of Life, he said. The 19-year-old passenger succumbed to her injuries on scene while the driver, 18, was airlifted to hospital in very serious condition. The pair was travelling in a Nissan NX westbound in the 33500 block of Page Road in Abbotsford around 4:30 p.m. when the driver lost control of the car, said MacDonald. “They came across the slightly elevated railroad track, lost control and careened into a tree on the north side,” he said. Witness reports suggest the Nissan was travelling above the speed limits, but the police collision analysts are still investigating the cause of the crash, said MacDonald. The driver is still in very serious condition and her family is keeping vigil at the hospital, he added. “Our thoughts are with both families and the 18-year-old fighting for her life.”

Silver set for Abby hospice

Saturday’s ball celebrates society’s significant milestone

CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

I

t’s a proud time for the Abbotsford Hospice Society, but the group must grow in order to meet the needs of people within the community, say its members. The AHS will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a Silver Ball gala Saturday at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre, and construction of a brand new residence is slated to begin by 2013. “It’s a significant milestone,” said AHS executive director Deborah Lehmann. The hospice society provides support services for patients over the age of 19 who suffer from a terminal condition, as well as their family and friends up to and during the bereavement process. “It is an emotional experience for each patient, each family member, volunteer, staff and everyone involved,” said Lehmann. Angelo Rea, AHS board chair, said that with Saturday’s gala now a few days away, he is reminded of just how many people the society has touched over the years. “I was thinking this morning, as peo-

ple give to the hospice, it’s all going back to the community and to the services that we provide,” said Rae. “Whether one is in business or supports the hospice personally, it all goes back. That’s the neat thing.” However, there is no hospice residence in Abbotsford, despite the growing number of families with members in need of palliative care. Instead, those in need must travel to the Christine Morrison Hospice Residence in Mission. According to Lehmann, approximately 75 per cent of all patients who come through the Mission hospice during the year are from Abbotsford. At one point in October, 100 per cent of patients at the Mission hospice were from Abbotsford. During the stressful times that comes with watching and waiting for a loved one to succumb to their illness, commuting between communities is the last thing people want to do, she said. “It’s a long bridge when you have people that are dying.” Change is on the way, however. In 2009, the AHS teamed with Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and

Communitas Supportive Care Society to form Abbotsford’s Campus of Care, a three-building complex that will be the first of its kind in North America, said Lehmann. “The next step in the process to complete our circle of care is to build that hospice residence where patients can be in their last days and have that homelike environment available to them,” said Lehmann, adding a brand new residence in Abbotsford was the focus of a $7.5 million capital campaign called Help Us Light the Way. The new two-storey, 28,000 square foot AHS residence will provide overnight accommodations for families, as well as support areas that will include a children’s play therapy space, a library resource centre, family counselling areas, an Internet café, a self-serve bistro and an entertainment lounge for children and teenagers. The gala begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre. Tickets are $125, and include dinner, entertainment and both a silent and live auction. ◗ For more information and to purchase tickets, call 604-852-2456.

bbotsford police are dealing with a spike in car thefts after 10 vehicles were stolen over the weekend. “Somebody has gone on a spree,” said Const. Ian MacDonald. “That usually means a correlation inside or outside of [Abbotsford] with other criminal activities, whether it be break and enters or robberies.” It’s likely all the vehicles were stolen by a couple of people, MacDonald said. There were also as many as 20 incidents of thefts from vehicles over the weekend. The positive note is none of those thefts occurred from vehicles parked in church parking lots. The APD issued a warning after several vehicles outside of churches were targeted in recent weeks. Investigators are plotting the locations of the robberies from the cars and cross-referencing the information with residences of known prolific offenders. “Their residences are right in the middle of that heat pattern,” said MacDonald. The crimes are likely the work of a limited number of individuals who may be feeding a drug habit, he said. “In one situation an individual has an outstanding warrant and . . . may be going on a binge before he knows he’s going to be arrested.” The APD is working on a number of initiatives to deal with property crime and prolific offenders that will roll out soon, said MacDonald.

n Abbotsford man was handed four and a half years behind bars for a 2006 police raid that netted six weapons, 1/2 kilogram of cocaine, a large quantity of ammunition, a Taser and body armour. Bhupinder Jatana, 32, who was also handed a lifetime weapons ban, was sentenced Friday in Chilliwack Supreme Court. Jatana was arrested and or iginally charged with

a total of 27 firearms and weapons charges following a raid on a home in the 33500 block of Rainbow Avenue on Aug. 4, 2006. Police located Jatana inside the home sleeping with a loaded 9 mm gun tucked under a pillow. Officers also seized three other handguns, two machine guns, and two silencers as well as $10,000 cash. The home was suspected to be a drug distribution centre for street-level trafficking in the city.

Abbotsford police Const. Ian MacDonald said the APD was happy to see that Jatana held responsible for his actions. “We were pleased back in [2006] at taking all the weapons and drugs out of his hands, and we’re even more pleased now with the successful result in court.” Jatana was “definitively” linked to gangs known to operate in Abbotsford, said MacDonald. “The quantity and drugs in the house was commensurate with the level of activity and rank of the individual,” he said.

oter apathy in British Columbia could open the door for the B.C. Conservative Party in the next provincial election, says former MP Randy White.

“The Fraser Valley is, as usual, potentially a very good electable area because there are so many conservatives in it.” – Randy White

White, who was the keynote speaker at a B.C. Conservative rally in Abbotsford Saturday night and a fourtime MP for the federal Conservatives in Ottawa, said the provincial party is expecting to field 85 candidates when the next scheduled election takes place in 2013. That’s a significant jump from the 2009 provincial election, when the B.C. Conservatives had just 24 candidates across the province

and accrued 2.1 per cent of the votes. White told the AbbotsfordMission Times things have changed within the party since the last election. “It hasn’t had the goals before this as they do now,” he said. Referring to low voter turnout in the last election, in which only 50 per cent of eligible voters filled out ballots, White said the public is getting fed up with the Liberals and NDP. “People have either become disassociated or dissatisfied,” he said, adding he did not vote in the 2009 election for those very reasons. “I joined half of the voting public who didn’t vote, either . . . They just felt the other two parties had lost touch.” In the ’09 election the B.C. Conservatives were represented in both Abbotsford ridings, which have belonged to Liberals Mike de Jong – currently in the running for the B.C. Liberal leadership – and John van Dongen for the past several years, . White said the B.C. Conservatives are not worried about that, saying the ties to the

Q u e s t i o n s re g a rd i n g Atebe’s political aspirations began in December when The Daily Nation, a newspaper publication out of Africa, reported Mission’s mayor could “be eyeing a seat in the provincial legislature.” Atebe, who was on vacation in Kenya at the time,

Development of a Pest Management Plan Application Number: MOT – IP – PMP - 2011 Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, South Coast Region 7818 – Sixth Street, Burnaby, B.C., V3N 4N8 Attention: Amber Smith Telephone: 604-660-0339 Fax: 604-660-2181 Email: amber.mt.smith@gov.bc.ca The purpose of the proposed Pest Management Plan (PMP) is to control invasive plants and/or noxious weeds on provincial Crown land in the South Coastal Mainland of B.C., including areas within or adjacent to high-risk sites (e.g. ecologically important natural areas), along transportation corridors, resource tenures, gravel pits and recreational sites. The PMP applies to areas located within the Metro Vancouver Regional District, the Fraser Valley Regional District, the Southwest half of the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District inclusive of Squamish but not including Lillooet and the lower portion of the Sunshine Coast Regional District, in the vicinity of Sechelt. The pest management methods proposed for use include manual/mechanical and cultural methods, biological control agents and the use of pesticides within the area to which the PMP applies. The common name and trade name of the pesticides proposed for use under this plan include: glyphosate (e.g. Vantage Plus Max), triclopyr (e.g. Garlon Ultra), aminopyralid (e.g. Milestone), acetic acid (e.g. Ecoclear) and chondrostereum purpureum (e.g. Chontrol Peat Paste). Selective application methods include: cut and paint or inject, backpack or ATV foliar spraying, wick-on, basal bark, squirt bottle and stem injection.

◗ Opinion

Are candidates connecting? F

or the most part, the candidates for the leadership of our two political parties like to boast they are all about reaching out to disaffected voters and widening their party’s base of support. In the B.C. Liberal camp, that seems to be a common theme among candidates such as Christy Clark, George Abbott and Mike de Jong. But one candidate in particular seems to be taking the opposite approach. Kevin Falcon, in his quest to win the B.C. Liberal leadership, appears interested primarily in demonstrating that he views the business community as pretty well the only constituency worth wooing. Almost every day, Falcon’s camp issues a news release boasting of the latest CEO or business leader endorsing his candidacy. This week, his campaign took out a full-page ad in The Vancouver Sun (at the very least, a sign that his campaign is well-funded) that listed more than 100 business owners or CEOs who support his candidacy. This was followed up by the announcement that David Emerson, the highly-respected former federal cabinet minister and forestry executive, was also backing Falcon. And I’m sure there will be plenty more such announcements in the weeks leading up to the Feb. 26th vote. While garnering such support is impressive and advantageous

KEITH BALDREY

From the Ledge in a leadership race, it does raise some interesting questions that may arise if Falcon were to actually become premier. Given that supporting business interests seem to a top priority for him, would a Falcon-led government therefore give shrift to other issues, such as the environment, social services or aboriginal relations? It’s no secret that Falcon is fairly right-wing, although I think the time he’s spent at the cabinet table has modified some of his views over the years. But he seems to think that if the business community is happy (i.e. profitable), then everything else will work itself out. But of course, not everyone has that kind of faith in noholds-barred capitalism. We still have a welfare state, and environmental values rank high in this province. Simply embracing the business community as a top priority may not cut it with a lot of voters. Another potential problem for Falcon is that he has provided a lot of ammunition to critics who will examine the relationship between government and his supporters (you can be sure the

NDP has clipped and saved that full-page ad). For example, a number of pharmaceutical companies are backing his candidacy. If his government were to make any changes to drug policies that end up benefitting those companies, how long do you think it will take for the NDP to cry foul and allege a conflict-of-interest? He also has the support of optometrists and transportation companies. Again, any changes to government policy that affect those operations will be framed against whatever contributions those companies gave to his campaign. What is somewhat surprising about all this is that Falcon, of all the candidates, does not have to establish his credentials as a business-friendly politician. His reputation on that front is already well known. And, to be fair, the membership of the B.C. Liberal party – who are the ones choosing the leader – are certainly pro-business in their outlook, so coming across as the most businessfriendly candidate will not be a disadvantage in that community. If Falcon does indeed prove victorious on Feb. 26, he will soon discover that support from the business community can only take him so far. In a general election, the winner will need the support of a lot more people than simply CEOs. ■ Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

ast week the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that, unlike any other public place in Canada, the government is free to limit photography and recordings in our courtrooms. Walk up to the Abbotsford courthouse and you’ll notice a sign that prohibits the use of all cameras and recording devices inside the buildings. That’s why sketches of proceedings are often used by larger newspapers; photographs are illegal. The Supreme Court’s essential rationale was that the public can’t be trusted to see what goes on in our courthouses. They said judicial proceedings are too nuanced, and the stakes too high, to allow for photography and video cameras and tape recorders and all those other tools of the media allowed everywhere else in Canada. We couldn’t disagree more. In fact, it is because our judicial system is one of the core pillars of our democracy that media should be allowed to broadcast, and take photos, in courthouses. Our justice system is a frequent target of criticism. But most are unlikely to have ever seen the inside of a courtroom, let alone watched a trial unfold. It’s worth noting that the ban on broadcasting audio and images from courthouses is government policy. The Supreme Court’s policy merely upholds it. Attorney General (and Chilliwack-Hope MLA) Barry Penner has indicated that he is open to cameras in courtrooms. But despite being the one man with the power to reverse the medieval policy, he hasn’t actually done anything about it. Penner is known for his love of photo opportunities. Surely he wouldn’t argue that their omnipresence has detracted from his ability to perform his job. It’s time for him to show the same lens love when it comes to courtroom cameras. ■ To comment on this editorial, e-mail us at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com.

Simple reason not to leave the FVRD

While I understand the anger, and I don’t agree with the district of Mission’s controversial controlled substance property bylaw which allows intrusive “home invasions” of allegedly innocent people plus exorbitant fines/fees, I don’t think it’s very smart to use attack pamphlets/ words which denigrate an “opponent’s” cultural or racial heritage, or country of birth. None of us have chosen the place of our birth. During my nearly 60 years in Canada, I have, from time to time, been attacked for having been born in a certain country. These attacks say more about the attacker(s), than they say about me or about anyone else who is attacked for having been born in some place other than Canada. Let’s have some civil discourse in this town. Criticize the kind of decisions that are made by certain officials; criticize their ideas or lack thereof, but let’s stay away from personal smear

Editor, the Times:

The answer? Gas tax. The question? Why would the City of Abbotsford want to secede from the FVRD. The silence emanating from the city since the original proposal for a gas tax is puzzling, but understandable if the strategy is to eliminate the other voices at the FVRD and, thus, implement projects (or destruction) at will. And, perhaps, this city will simply be “swallowed” by the GVRD, and then be “forced” to implement that gas tax, thus relieving our great and glorious leaders from all responsibility. Whatever the reason(s) for this ingenious plan to secede one can be assured it has nothing to do with the good of the people and everything to do with private ambitions. As usual.

Just as he once bluffed his way in regard to Islamic civilization in medieval Spain, Robert Rock returns to bad form and bluffs his way in regard to Christians (Times, Jan. 28). With casual ease – but no evidence – Rock confidently announces that “study after study” (mind you!) somehow “points out” (where?) that “evangelical Christians lag far behind agnostics and atheists in religious knowledge”. Sez who? If he honestly has “study after study”, then Rock should cite them clearly so that sceptics can examine them. If he cannot cite

right”. With his usual bombast, Rock fantasizes “far right religious illiterates”. Not merely are they rightwing (a term that arises from the 18th century), but they are “far” for some mysterious reason that he keeps to himself. Anyway, there is nothing really and truly right-wing, much less “far right”, about churches providing support for people struggling with drug addiction. It is commendable. Inarticulate to the end, Rock fantasizes that those who dare call his bluff must thereby be “illiterate.” Since “illiterate” means being literally unable to read, writer Rock would be wasting his time in writing against people who, by his own description, must be unable to read him in the first place. Rock’s odd practice is truly laughable. Robert Rock does not exhibit enlightenment values or any other kind. He just bluffs – and praises himself. Greg Lanning Abbotsford

He believes truly – but wrongly – in a vague, untestable “march to suicide” by our democratically elected premier and prime minister. Similarly, Rock bluffs his way in economics with vague, untestable bombast about unnamed “ultraconservative economists” whom he shows no sign of having read in the first place. Just for added exaggeration, Rock jams in the gratuitous adjective “ultra”. True believer Rock truly – but badly – believes that there are “false promises” of the free market economy and globalization, but he doesn’t try to specify what these “promises” are, who made them or why he truly, dogmatically believes that they are somehow “false”.

The one Abbotsford councillor who I have faith in at the moment is Patricia Ross. At least she has the wits about her to question the idea of complete abandonment of the FVRD. If I were on council I would be asking these questions before embracing the idea of leaving the regional partnership: Why do we see Abbotsford as a separate entity from the surrounding area? We are geographically and ecologically integrated so why shouldn’t our politics and economy be? What are the indirect economic spin-offs that are gained through the partnership? Are we destroying opportunities for rail for the valley? Are we permanently degrading the integrated network of roads, bridges, and other infrastructure by leaving? What is the non-monetary or intangible value we receive from a good relationship with our neighbours? What about disaster prevention and the role our contribution plays in the safety of our region? Can we not merely have a more equitable distribution of monies instead of a complete abandoning of ship? I am sure all the other districts and municipalities that are part of the FVRD would be willing to make some adjustments to their contri-

Editor, the Times:


A8 ❘ NEWS ❘ TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2011 THE TIMES CONSTRUCTION, from page A1 in one day added another $208,000 to the bill. The original cost of the project was $6.8 million with a $250,000 contingency budget. The final projected cost is $7.3 million. Despite the increased cost, the city got an extremely good deal on the project due to the economic recession and competitive bids, said Jim Gordon, general manager of engineering, adding the original projected cost was $4 million more. The connector was scheduled to open on Jan. 31, but with delays due to poor weather, the road is scheduled to open by the first week in February, provided it is dry enough to paint the street lanes. Abbotsford Mayor George Peary said the rather complicated project has been in the works for close to a decade, and took negotiations with both senior levels of government. “We had to move the road into a rock face which caused some delays,” said Peary. “But it’s a beautiful road with quite a complex feat of engi-

Construction = more jobs neering to build it.” Traffic volume along Whatcom Road is expected to increase by 490 vehicles per hour during peak periods once the project is complete, according to a September city report. A total of 16,000 vehicles move along the road per day, with 2,000 doing so during the afternoon peak hours. Large developments, such as the Vicarro Ranch plan, which will add 1,400 residences to the area over 12 years, will drive up the numbers on the road by another 450 vehicles per hour during peak periods. Signal lights will be installed to deal with the increased flow of traffic at the intersection of Whatcom and McKee roads and at Whatcom and Highway 1. A second road infrastructure project is driving forward. The city has awarded a $2 million contract to complete the Marshall Road Extension, to open up industrial development in the Mount Lehman Road area south of the Highway 1, and facilitate traffic to Tradex and the Abbotsford International

Airport. McDonald & Ross Construction won the contract to connect the Marshall Road Extension between Queen Street and Mount Lehman Road. The road work is part of the city’s goal to fast-track infrastructure projects that will support economic growth from significant commercial and industrial developments. Jay Teichroeb, Abbotsford’s general manager of economic development, said the project will provide the west side of the airport terminal and Tradex with a direct connection to the new Clearbrook and Mount Lehman interchanges. It also provides a transportation artery, which will service 100 acres of new industrial land immediately north of the new extension. The parcel, part of the Peardonville Area of the City in the Country Plan, will significantly contribute to the city’s economic growth, said Teichroeb. “We have estimates that suggest there could be 2,500 jobs generated in that area,” he said. Construction on the extension is expected to begin in March and to be completed by mid-June.

Cougars claw UFV

Cascades drop weekend, playoffs up in the air

Abby takes on Chicago Wolves Wednesday

ll is not lost for the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades men’s basketball team, despite a weekend of hardship and agonizing defeats. The Cascades, who sit ninth in the CIS West standings and on the cusp of the final playoff spot occupied by the University of Calgary Dinos, had the chance to climb back into the top eight but narrowly missed out thanks to a pair of losses at the hands of the University of Regina Cougars. On Friday, it was a 92-89 doubleovertime defeat at the Envision Centre in Abbotsford. Less than 24 hours later, same venue, UFV lost another tough one, this time by a score of 87-83. Instead of vaulting past Dinos, the Cascades are now tied them with each team having just six games remaining in the regular season to resolve the deadlock. “Disappointed is probably the first thought that comes to mind,” said Cascades head coach Barnaby Craddock Monday. “We’ve had about four games like that in our building where they have been one possession games, and we’d like to think that we can pull one or two of those out.” If anything, the losses build the drama that’s sure to take over in these next few games. The Cascades are still in control of their own destiny, said Craddock, and their fate will mostly depend on themselves. “It’s anyone’s to earn their way into the playoffs,” he said. “Sure, we’d like to have put ourselves in a better spot to clinch a playoff spot, but now it’s a dog fight to see who gets in. “We realize that. We have two more home games and four more games on the road against teams we think can we can beat, but the bottom line if we want to make the playoffs is we have to play better as a group than we’ve shown, especially on defence.” The Cascades may have also caught a break in the scheduling.

Waiting game over for Heat?

UFV guard Joel Friesen does a back bend to get possession of the ball in the Cascades’ battle with the University of Regina Friday night at the Envision Centre. The men’s and women’s teams lost both weekend games to the Cougars. They are slated to face the lowly University of Winnipeg men’s basketball team for a pair of away games Friday and Saturday. Winnipeg sits at the bottom of the CIS West with just two wins all sea-

son. After a visit to Winnipeg, it’s on to a two-game series with the University of Lethbridge, which has lost four games in a row and sits two points back of the Cascades.

peculation that the Abbotsford Heat will be lopping up the scraps left over from the Calgary Flames has run rampant for the last week. On Friday, rumour, well, half of it, became reality when the Flames announced they had assigned Ales Kotalik to the AHL Heat after he cleared waivers earlier that morning. Kotalik, a veteran of more than 530 NHL games, will report to the Heat Wednesday as the team begins the back half of a 10-game road trip against the Chicago Wolves. At age 32 and a salary cap hit of $3 million, Kotalik has struggled mightily this season. He has scored just three goals in 20 games, and has missed a majority of the season with an injury suffered at the beginning of October. Not flattering numbers considering he has four times posted 20 goals or more in a single season. In 2005-2006, the season following the NHL lockout, Kotalik had 25 goals and 62 points with the highoctane offence of the Buffalo Sabres. But injuries and inconsistent play have hampered the past few seasons for the native of the Czech Republic. In 46 games combined games with Calgary this season and last, he six goals and just eight points. But now the question is how will he fit into a youthful Heat lineup that is, gradually, beginning to again find its stride offensively? Saturday, the Heat defeated the Texas Stars 5-4 in a

ALES KOTALIK shootout to go into the AHL All-Star break on a winning note. In addition to their first five-goal outburst since Nov. 12, the Heat have now scored seven power play goals in their last six games to shed the standing of having the worst man advantage in the entire league. Heat head coach Jim Playfair was unavailable Monday to comment. As of the Times’ afternoon deadline Monday, the Heat were also awaiting a decision from Craig Conroy on whether to retire or give the local AHL club a try. At 39, Conroy is expected to announce his retirement and was given the weekend – there was no NHL hockey due to the All-Star game – to make a decision. Regardless, the Heat aren’t afforded the luxury of waiting for Conroy’s official announcement – either way. As of Monday’s AHL AllStar Classic in Hershey, PA., the Heat, represented at the league-wide skills display by T.J. Brodie, sat two points out of the final playoff spot in the North Division with one game in hand on the fourth place Toronto Marlies. Abbotsford takes on Chicago Wednesday. Puck drop is at 5:30 p.m. PST. The Heat are back home on Feb. 11.

Cascade women win, men lose

Sexes split series against cross-town rivals BCCAA Scoreboard:

W Volleyball: Cascades 3-0 M Volleyball: Bearcats 3-0

T

he University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s volleyball team defeated their crosstown rivals, the Columbia Bible College Bearcats, 3-0, to sweep the two-game BCCAA regular season series and improve their league record to 5-5, good for fourth place in the standings. The Cascades led from the first serve to the last, building up double digit leads in all three sets despite giving the Bearcats several opportunities to narrow the lead before UFV put them away. The Cascades won the sets by scores of 25-22, 25-18 and 25-21. “We played great tonight. I am very proud of my teammates, especially the players who came off the bench and made big contributions,” said Kayla Bruce, a thirdyear veteran from Surrey and last week’s UFV Female Athlete of the Week last week. The Cascades have now won two regular season games in a row. “The team played with great composure and conviction. Our young athletes came off the bench and made an impact on the game. All around a great team effort,” said

UFV head coach Dennis Bokehfohr. The Cascades were led by Kari Roos, a second-year Chilliwack native, with 12 kills, eight digs, three blocks and a 38 per cent hitting average. Brittany Stewart, the Cascades captain from Langley, added 16 digs in the victory. UFV’s men’s volleyball team didn’t fare nearly as well, falling to CBC, 3-0 at the Envision Athletic Centre. The Cascades regular season record falls to 4-6 as they remain in fifth place in the standings. CBC swept the two-game regular season series. Though unfr uitful, the game was a very entertaining and close match. The Cascades had numerous opportunities in the first two sets to put CBC away and win the set, but could not close out their crosstown rivals in each of those two sets that required extra points to settle the round. The Bearcats won all three sets 26-24, 34-32 and 25-20. The Cascades were led by Aaron Flanagan, a fourth-year veteran from Langley, with 12 kills and two blocks. Pe t e r Va n Bre d e r o d e, a s e c o n d - y e a r Mission native, led UFV with eight digs, while Peter Dumerton of Abbotsford also recorded two blocks in the loss.

A14 ❘ NEWS ❘ TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2011 THE TIMES LEADERSHIP, from page A1 “You’re doing the hiring. I’m doing the applying.” The primary job of premier is to sell the province’s technology and resources, whether it be in the region, across Canada, or internationally. “It’s to say, ‘The products you want and need are here in B.C.,’” he said. B.C. has a wealth of reliable, stable resources – in mining, forestry, or hydro-electricity – that need to be marketed to fast growing economies such as China or India, de Jong said. Growing the economy and limiting spending, by such things as reducing cabinet, was the way to

“There is no government money, only your money” deal with the province’s $1.7 billion deficit, he added. “It’s remarkably easy to talk about how to spend money,” he said. “The real problem is how to generate wealth for services that British Columbians have come to expect in health care or education.” Business and free enterprise were the means to generate the revenue to fund those services, he said. “The engine of the economy is the private sector, not the public sector,” he said. “There is no government money, only your money. “It’s okay to tell me you are in business to make money. We have

to have the tax structure and regulatory policy in place to make good things happen.” Job creation was the best way to dealing with ongoing issues of child poverty, homelessness or affordable housing, he stressed. “You can announce all the programs you want, but the basic fact is without jobs poverty continues.” He dismissed the notion of “roundtables” dedicated to “managing poverty.” “Children experience poverty because their parents are poor, and parents are poor because they can’t find jobs,” he said.

“Education and jobs. There’s the recipe for breaking the cycle of poverty.” Jobs, particularly in the resource industry, would also provide families with the ability to purchase homes, he added. de Jong told the crowd his campaign was leading the way in signing up “thousands and thousands” of new members. The Liberal party had 35,000 members at the start of the leadership campaign and the number will likely double by the end of the race, he said. He was not concerned at the lack of MLAs backing his bid for

top office, or what it might mean if he were to lead the party in the future. “I am the longest serving MLA in caucus, those relationships already exist,” he said. “Being in the position where you owe no one any favours is precisely the right position for a premier to be in.” He stressed those who sign up to be Liberal party members have the rare opportunity to elect a premier. “Of course I have a bias about who they wish to hire for the job of premier . . . It’s time for Abbotsford to elect a premier.” The deadline to register as a member of the Liberal party is Friday, Feb. 4.

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!

7. Before you hit me, remember I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite you. 8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, or my heart may be getting old and weak. 9. Take care of me when I get old. You, too, will grow old. 10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Everything is easier for ME if you are there. Remember, I love you.
