Four tax scenarios presented Proposed tax rates of 5.4, 4.66, 3.88 and 3.5 offered BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Mission residents will be presented with four tax scenarios tonight (Thursday) at a special council meeting to discuss this year’s budget.

The proposed tax rates for 2011 are 5.4 per cent, 4.66 per cent, 3.88 per cent and 3.5 per cent. Council looked at a zero per cent increase, but determined it would not be a wise choice for the longterm future of the community, said Ken Bjorgaard, Mission’s finance director. The full service budget scenario was reduced from 7.2 per cent to 5.4 per cent due to cost savings in the RCMP contract, no increase to council’s 2011 salary and additional investment income

and fee revenue. A 4.77 per cent increase is needeed to maintain existiing services, which iincludes police servvices (1.19 per cent), ttransit (1.22 per cent), ssalaries and benefits ((1.97 per cent) and oother contractual Bjorgaard commitments (0.39 per cent). The full budget scenario (5.4 per cent) includes hiring an additional police officer (0.45 per cent), a

second assistant fire chief (0.26 per cent), funding security guards downtown from taxation instead of gaming funds (0.15 per cent) and increasing funding to the economic development office (0.14 per cent) for community special events grants (0.02 per cent). All the proposed budgets also include a 1.03 per cent to fund the full-time firefighters hired in October.

Honouring Robbie Burns The third annual Robbie Burns Supper was held at Cedarbrooke Chateau Saturday, with proceeds benefiting the Canadian Cancer Society. Over 100 guests attended, helping raise $6,000 from ticket sales plus silent and live auction items. Raffle ticket sales accounted for an additional $7,500. Carole Herris of White Rock won the top prize, a trip for two anywhere West Jet flies, and Steven Cliffe of Lake Errock won a $500 gift certificate to Real Canadian Superstore. One hundred per cent of the funds raised go towards Cops for Cancer, pediatric research and Camp Good Times. Above: Piper Down entertained the audience with their musical stylings. Right: Chef Kerry Martin carries in the haggis, followed by Norm MacLeod and RCMP Const. Carl Wellwood. JASON ROESSLE PHOTOS

Public budget meeting held this evening at municipal hall From FOUR Page 1

The 4.66 per cent tax hike scenario is similar to the full service one, but the district would forego hiring an additional police officer and a second assistant fire chief. A 3.88 per cent would see the downtown security program funded through gaming revenues, a delay in implementing LiveScan for the RCMP, defer an electronic document management system upgrade and reductions in both the corporate administration and engineering/ public works departments.

In order to reduce the budget to 3.5 per cent, training would be reduced for fire/rescue services and the finance department, overtime would be reduced at public hearings for the planning department, and afternoon reception coverage would be cut back for the recreation and culture department. There will also be increases to water and sewer rates, but refuse will not be going up, noted Bjorgaard. According to a district handout, 51 per cent of the district’s services are paid through property taxes. The rest comes from

sale of services, user rates, investment income, etc. The district’s budget planning process begins with department managers and staff compiling financial details of projects and operating areas. “We do a detailed three-year plan then update the coming year,” explained the finance director. Council gets involved later to look at the different scenarios and determine if there are other projects they want to put forward or reduce. Council’s goals are: • to develop a realistic, coordinated, long-term plan for the

downtown/waterfront area; • to improve the overall health and health care in Mission; • to enhance overall economic health and increase the knowledge and skills of individuals so they can enter or re-enter the labour market; • to provide for cultural infrastructure needs, including physical space for culture, senior and youth facilities, and; • to create a long-term sustainable vision that is inspiring and supported by the community. The budget meeting today takes place at 6:30 p.m. at municipal hall.

Keystone crash injures three men BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

A single motor vehicle crash sent three Mission men to hospital last Friday. The incident happened just before 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 14, said RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson. The black Acura was travelling westbound on Keystone Avenue when the driver failed to negotiate the turn east of Townshipline Avenue and smashed into a traffic pole, knocking down power lines. The male occupants range between 20 and 21

years of age. The driver had to be cut out of the vehicle by firefighters and was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital with head injuries, where he remains in serious condition, said Dickson. The front passenger also suffered serious head and facial injuries and the back seat occupant escaped with cuts and bruises. Both were treated at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. The driver is being investigated for driving while impaired, noted Dickson.

BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

The district will be reviewing its false alarm bylaw after two businesses racked up hefty bills in circumstances beyond the businesses’ control. Thirteen false alarms were recorded at a Glasgow Avenue business late last year, but police only attended four of those calls because the owner managed to cancel the rest. Faulty wiring was blamed. The alarm company made changes to its procedures and call centres which caused the problems. The Mission business has since changed alarm companies and there have been no further alarm calls since Dec. 1. A First Avenue restaurant accumulated a $1,790 bill for false alarms between Sept. 15 to Oct. 31 last year because a spider had built a web around the motion sensor, triggering the alarm. The owner was out of the country when the alarms rang but investigated and dealt with the situation upon his return. Police records show no calls since. Mission’s current false alarm

Residents take advantage of free facility use Organizers declare last weekend’s Back to Health fair at Leisure Centre a success BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Hundreds of people filled the Leisure Centre Saturday for the first annual Back to Health ... for Good Health Fair. “It was really successful,” said

Councillor Paul Horn, who cochaired the organizing committee. “It was very, very busy. People took advantage of the free Leisure Centre services and got a taste of some fitness classes” plus the ice rinks. In addition to free facility use, the fair also offered activities and classes

eed n u o Do y ? t r o p s a pas

like chair exercises for those with mobility issues, fun brain exercises for children, Special Olympics sports and daily physical activity suggestions, in addition to pilates and bosu ball classes. Horn spoke on mental health and stress, while others advised about increasing activity, substance abuse, fall prevention for seniors, healthy eating and quitting smoking. The presentations were packed with useful information, but Horn

admitted he was disappointed more people didn’t attend. People spend hundreds of dollars to go to a weight loss clinic to help them lose weight and asked who knew that information was available free from the provincial government. Organizers have been planning the health fair since mid-2010 and started promoting it close to the new year when more people are thinking about improving their health. The group will be meeting next

month to review the fair’s success and look for improvements. While the fair represented how well community councils and local health authorities can work in partnership, there were also a number of other groups involved, such as the school district, Fraser House and Mission Association for Seniors Housing. Next year, Horn would like to get local doctors involved and even target specific community groups, such as seniors and youth.

OPINION

Published and printed by Black Press Ltd. at Mission at 33047 First Ave., V2V 1G2

Whole force hurt It wasn’t just Buddy Tavares who was left injured as a result of a vicious-looking kick to his face by a Kelowna RCMP officer late last week. The force, stung by a series of questionable actions by its officers in recent years, has once again received a black eye from one of its own. The kick, delivered by Const. Geoff Mantler, a three-year veteran of the force and captured on video by a local reporter, resulted in the swift announcement of both criminal and internal investigations by his commanding officer. The criminal investigation is being conducted by Abbotsford Police Department. The fact Mantler kicked Tavares is not in question. That is plain to see in the video. The question is why. Did Mantler just lose it? Did he feel threatened? Did he feel Tavares was not responding? Was something lacking in his training? No matter what the answer is, the kick was, in the words of his boss, Supt. Bill McKinnon “shocking” and “disappointing.” It was more than that. It was unacceptable behaviour from someone charged with enforcing the law. Police officers need to keep their emotions in check on the job. They are held to a higher standard because of the position they hold in society. We give them special powers to enforce the law, we equip them with loaded guns to use if needed and we trust they will act with integrity. And the majority of police do just that. They chose to take on a tough job and, in most cases, they do it well. But there are exceptions. In Canada, we pride ourselves on the fact that this is not a police state. We have rules and they are followed, both by the police and the public. But when we lose confidence in that, we lose a lot. —Kelowna Capital News

Recall descends into farce T

he rough beast of recall has slouched into Kamloops and Comox, carrying with it the rank smell of the failing effort in Oak Bay. Next up in this venomous venture is Vernon, starting on March 15, Fight HST maestro Bill Vander Zalm vowed in a swing through the unlucky North Okanagan city last week. “More canvassers are signing up in Oak Bay-Gordon Head to help put recall over the top there,” Vander Zalm bragged in a news release describing a standing-roomonly crowd in Vernon. “We had a terrific meeting in a snowy Kamloops last night with 45 canvassers to kick off that campaign, and now this! It’s faaaaantastic!” This is a change to Vander Zalm’s tune on the bid to muscle out Science and Universities Minister Ida Chong. The previous week he posted an open letter to supporters pleading for money and volunteers, while conceding that the cherry-picked swing constituency in suburban Victoria was still less than halfway to its goal with time

running out. Former Social Credit attorney general Brian Smith and former NDP premier Dan Miller both spoke out to denounce this anti-tax recall as inappropriate. Smith told me about Oak Bay residents being approached repeatedly after refusing to sign the Chong petition. He called it “abuse.” But apparently Chong’s central message is getting through: getting rid of her won’t get rid of the harmonized sales tax. In KamloopsNorth Thompson, To where MLA Terry Lake is the strategic swing-riding target, the NDPaffiliated organizer told Kamloops This Week he was concerned about recall canvassers being diverted to work on NDP leadership campaigns. Nope, nothing partisan there. B.C.’s acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James was invited on CKNW radio to describe the hate mail

he received after rejecting the first version of the Oak Bay-Gordon Head petition for having too many words. (This delayed it for all of a week.) There were hundreds of emails to this mild-mannered legislature clerk, urged on by a typical screed sent out by Fight HST demanding his resignation. More serious threats and death wishes prompted police to provide security to his home and the Elections BC office. Fight HST ringmaster Chris Delaney, along with m the NDP-affiliated recall organizer for Oak Bay, downplayed this. Delaney suggested the timing was suspicious, as per his earlier baseless attacks on James’ impartiality. Vander Zalm also muttered about the government working with James and unspecified elements of the “Big Corporate Media” to scuttle the recall. This is the latest vision to emerge from

B.C. Views

Fletcher

the Fight HST clown car of conspiracy theories. Delaney continues his frantic efforts to launch the B.C. First Party, which is coincidentally being developed in tandem with the recall campaign. In his role as B.C. First “spokesman,” Delaney recently cranked out a new conspiracy. The B.C. Liberals are forcing BC Hydro to undertake expensive repairs to dams and transmission facilities, not to expand or prevent further blackouts in downtown Vancouver, but to make BC Hydro go broke! Then they’re going to sell it off to General Electric! This is a variation on a loopy theory advanced by Rafe Mair, wherein Gordon Campbell plots to dam the Fraser River and then sell Hydro off to GE. NDP leadership candidates would be wise to follow Miller’s lead and distance themselves from this increasingly toxic exercise.

YOUR VIEWS

New group of trustees should be elected Editor, The Record: Re: Parents need to stand up, Dec. 2 edition. Ms. Isbister makes many salient points about our dysfunctional school district. I like her suggestion that parents and other citizens need to speak up, but her suggestion that people should attend school board meetings will only bring more frustration. The public is only allowed to ask questions about items which were on that meeting’s agenda. So inclusion on the meeting agenda as a delegation is necessary to address other concerns. But first the request must go to the superintendent who

may or may not add the request to a meeting of the education committee, as he acts as a gatekeeper to your elected trustees. The education committee must then agree to allow a delegation to address their concerns at a public school board meeting. There is an inordinate amount of control exercised within this bureaucracy. Elected trustees are leashed by senior management, rubber stamp policy from management, and make it difficult for constituents to reach them as an elected body. In May 2006 this same group of management officials stated Mission would never have to close schools because

their projections of enrolment decline said we would be better off than other districts. How could they have been so wrong? How is it that they weren’t held accountable and are still employed after three closed schools and now two more to be potentially shut down? I suggest another charade is proceeding with respect to the proposed closings of Deroche and Dewdney. One need look no further than to Durieu PAC Chair Jeanette Marriott’s comments about the first consultation meeting. Management officials are masters at manipulating meetings

bringing, in this case, four questions that the parents were directed to answer, and only allowing each group to generate two of their own questions which were then taken under advisement so a “spun” response could later be posted on the website. I have witnessed this process of pseudo-consultation for decades and it seems nothing has changed. In my opinion, the decision has already been made to close Durieu and Deroche. The threat of the First Nations parents to remove their children from Mission schools entirely might keep Deroche open. Losing

those children means lost money and embarrassment, which are the only things the district fears. Trustee elections are in November. Ms. Isbister and Ms. Marriott should be candidates, along with more likeminded individuals who will have the courage and fortitude to fight for children and parents, stand up to management, and be more supportive of teachers and support staff. I hope such individuals are elected and every one of the current meek, unresponsive, ineffective and intimidated trustees are turfed. Dennis Keis Mission

Smoking cessation items Good Samaritans appreciated should be funded by gov’t Editor, The Record: Re: National Non-Smoking Week, Jan. 16-22. The Canadian Cancer Society BC and Yukon is calling on the B.C. government and Liberal leadership candidates to support smokers who wish to quit by providing funding for nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) for those British Columbia smokers trying to quit. During this week, the B.C. government can reassert the province’s leadership position in tobacco control. Smoking cessation products help smokers quit. NRT, such as the nicotine patch and nicotine gum, combined with physician counseling have a proven record of treating tobacco addiction. Similar improvements in quitting success result from medications that help reduce cravings and minimize withdrawal effects. Tobacco use remains the largest single preventable cause of death and disease here, killing more than

6,000 British Columbians annually. Tobacco use is estimated to cost the B.C. economy $2.3 billion annually and causes 30 per cent of all cancer deaths and 85 per cent of lung cancer cases. We commend the B.C. government for continuing to fund quitnow.ca and QuitNow by Phone, free smoking cessation programs that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to all British Columbians. However, if we know that smoking is an addiction, we should also help pay for treatment for the estimated 70 per cent of smokers who wish to quit. British Columbia would become the third Canadian province to pay for smoking cessation products. Let’s work together to urge our provincial politicians to support smokers who wish to quit. Mandip Kharod-Clark Health Promotion Coordinator Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission and Hope

Editor, The Record: I would like to thank some Good Samaritans. On Jan. 8, my car slid off the road at the east end of North Railway Avenue and into the brambly ditch, landing on its side. I was unhurt but could not get out. A kind man banged on the car and said he would go for help. He returned with police

and ambulance, climbed up onto the side (now at the top) of the car and braced the door open so I could clamber out without it dropping on me. A second man also climbed up and assisted me through the doorway (careful not to bump the first one and get us all injured) and his family assisted me up onto the roadway.

I am 76 and was more than a little shaken, to the extent that I did not get the names of any of the rescuers. They were wonderfully kind and helpful — and so were the police who attended the incident, but one tends to expect that of them. Thanks again, all. Shirley Wiesehahn Mission

Sidewalks should be cleared faster Editor, The Record: I would like to know if the District of Mission fines stores for not cleaning snow off sidewalks. Shouldn’t the municipality then be fined for not doing the same thing on the sidewalks to Safeway and Shoppers, and also the stairs on First Avenue? Not all people have cars. Another thing, behind Inform Fitness, the sidewalk is narrow. Lots of cars come around the corner.

I think the district should clean up the bushes and make the sidewalk wider. Also, that road behind Inform gets cold, ice forms on the sidewalk and it is very hard to pass. Last year when we had the cold spell, I slipped and fell against a police car that was parked there. As well, in the last four years there were three car accidents at that spot. Bert Edgar Mission

The district should make shovelling sidewalks a priority. METRO

Driving laws may be best thing B.C. could have N

ew provincial legislation aimed at reducing the road carnage caused by impaired driving is certainly draconian, as it basically means there will be zero tolerance for driving after having as little as one drink. A local restaurateur told me last week he believes this law and its enforcement has had a more significant impact on the hospitality business downturn than the muchvaunted HST, especially here in the suburbs where transit options are not as good as they are for people who party it up in the region’s urban areas. People are afraid to have even one glass of wine with their dinner,

he reasons, and this is perfectly alright with it. Guest keeping people at home. And aside from drinkI reckon he’s probably ing at home, there are column right on this but on the other alternatives. other hand, does everyone You can still enjoy a really have to consume night out, socializing with alcohol to have a good friends and supporting live time? music acts, without imbibI’m not a prude or a teeing alcohol.

Langmann

Naturally, I fully expect to one day get pulled over by a skeptical police officer and told to do stupid human tricks after he or she sniffs the barley and hops on my breath, but that’s OK. The police are just doing the job we pay them to do, and I will pass any tests with flying colours. If this isn’t convincing enough, consider that if some idiot drives into you and you are found to be impaired, you will be charged as partially to blame and your insurance is null and void because you broke the law. Even if your driving was otherwise perfect and you couldn’t have avoided the collision no matter whether you were sober

or impaired, you are hooped. The scariest part is that if the driver that hit you is crippled you could conceivably spend the rest of your life paying for that person’s care out of your own pocket, because, remember, your insurance is cancelled retroactively.

New penalties deterring impaired drivers: RCMP BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Police caught 43 per cent fewer drinking drivers in the second half of the December Counterattack campaign in the Lower Mainland. And RCMP Traffic Services Supt. Norm Gaumont is crediting the province’s tougher roadside penalties for dissuading motorists who’ve consumed alcohol from getting behind the wheel. “That’s a marked decrease,� he said. “What we’re hearing from our members on the road is a lot of people are now talking about this and have designated drivers.� A total of 427 drivers stopped by police were given prohibitions, suspensions or were charged for impaired driving in the Lower Mainland during the December Counterattack period. That included 132 who got 90-day driving prohibitions. Another 92 got three-day prohibitions and their vehicles were impounded. In Mission, seven drivers were given driving suspensions ranging from three to 90 days between Dec. 23 and Jan. 3. Two first-time offenders in the warn range between a blood alcohol level of 0.05 and the legal limit of 0.08 were given three-day suspensions. Detailed statistics were not available for the rest of the Lower Mainland. Tellingly, however, just six drivers during the Counterattack campaign were charged criminally for

impaired driving — down sharply from a year ago. Defence lawyers contend the most serious impaired drivers well over 0.08 are escaping without a criminal conviction or record, enjoying a virtual decriminalization of impaired driving under the stiffer administrative penalties that took effect in September. Gaumont rejects that criticism, noting a repeat offender can now have their car towed for 30 days, be given a 90-day prohibition, be forced to use an ignition interlock

at a cost of $1,400-plus per year and take a $700 course to get back on the road. “That is not a minor consequence,� he said. “You’re dealing with them swiftly. The consequences are immediate. “We’re hoping to change their driving behaviour immediately instead of them going back next weekend and drinking and driving again.� Pursuing criminal charges can typically mean a two-year wait through the justice system, he added.

By not charging a drunk driver, he said, an officer saves about 20 hours of time that would normally be spent investigating, filing paperwork and testifying in court. “Those 20 hours can now be spent on the road getting more impaireds off the road.� Criminal charges still proceed in cases of injury crashes and more serious repeat offenders, he said. The new system has also been accused of making police officers not just investigators but also judges and executioners, dispensing justice at

the roadside. Gaumont says drivers who doubt the accuracy of their roadside breath test can ask for a second test on a different machine and anyone penalized can appeal through the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. “We’ve got all kinds of mechanisms in there to make sure the process is fair.� Gaumont said the penalties are spurring a change in attitude. And he predicts the ultimate measure of success will be a drop in impaired driving-related fatal crashes in B.C. “Preliminary-wise, we’re seeing a drop, a significant drop,� he said, adding statistics will be released in the months ahead. Ontario saw a 30 per cent drop in impaired driving fatalities after bringing in similar administrative penalties to B.C.’s. The Christmas Counterattack blitz also saw 3,229 Lower Mainland speeders ticketed, including 114 for excessive speeding where the vehicle was impounded. Officers also handed out 1,144 tickets or warnings for seatbelt infractions and 1,253 tickets for running traffic lights, failing to stop or yield or making improper turns. Mission Mounties handed out two tickets for seatbelt infractions, 10 tickets for speeding and two tickets for excessive speeding. Lower Mainland traffic officers intend to shift more of their focus to distracted drivers who continue to talk, text or use hand-held devices in violation of B.C.’s now year-old ban. — With files from Carol Aun

Centennial Park is a well-used green space in Mission, still used extensively today. JASON ROESSLE PHOTO

Lane Creek boon to farmers W

hen the first settlers started eyeing the land on the north side of the Fraser River over 150 years ago, the general impression was “bush, bears, and mosquitoes.” The flats often flooded and marshes and ponds were home to thousands of waterbirds. The many little creeks had been a rich source of ooligans during the annual runs, and trout and salmon returned to most of the streams Sha to spawn. As development moved forward, many of these streams, a boon to early farmers, seemed to disappear from the landscape. One of those is Lane Creek. Flowing south from the heights of Cedar Valley, it made its way toward the downtown, past the railway tracks, and eventually out to the Fraser. As streets and housing took the place of farmland, most of the streambed was channeled into culverts, and paved over. Today, two areas along Lane Creek have been set aside for recreation and parkland. The area at Grand Street north of 11 Avenue was first proposed as a park back in 1962 when Ethel Ogle was mayor. The Rotary Club donated $250 toward the cost of the study, and committed $1,500

for park work. The first plans included 24 acres that could contain two ball fields, a lawn bowling green, an outdoor theatre, spaces for “quiet recreation” including horseshoes and shuffleboard, and a large “Pioneer House” where visitors could rest and enjoy the view. The initial report warned “the development of this park may take a generation or more.” From 1962 to 1967, municipal planners, local ron service clubs, and private citizens became involved led by park project chairman E.W. Willis and Jack Davidson, Centennial committee chairman. On June 28, 1967, B.C. Lt.-Gov. George Pearkes planted a pink dogwood at the official opening of Centennial Park. Local Boy Scouts formed an honour guard, also attended by Soap Box Derby queen elect Pat Blackstock and a company of cadets under Cpl. Willie Kohler. Although many of the plans didn’t materialize, Centennial Park quickly became a community gathering place; over the years a lacrosse pitch, tennis courts, children’s playground and walking trails were added. The proposed “outdoor theatre” took the form of a small cement stage area, with people sitting on surrounding hill slopes

Our History

to enjoy musicians, pow wow dancers, and skits. In the early 1990s, the Mission Garden Club created a mini-garden at the entrance to the park, in memory of Lil Ulmer, an active and talented member of their group. Recently, part of Centennial Park has been designated as an off-leash dog area. Although Lane Creek disappears under the streets and Leisure Centre grounds, it reemerges just south of the fire hall and continues to

situational training police undergo. Each year more than 2,000 RCMP members from across British Columbia attend week-long courses at the PRTC. Every day police encounter situations that could end badly. Ensuring they don’t is the product of training. At their disposal is a fairly limited arsenal, ranging from their power of persuasion, to the semi-automatic at their side. But perhaps the most important tool is one between their ears. In seconds they must assess the situation, categorize the risks, and determine the most effective response. On paper, this is called the “Incident Management Intervention Model.” There’s a nice drawing of how it’s supposed to work pasted on the wall in the “apartment” where we’re staging our scenarios. The challenge, says RCMP Cpl. Steve Hiscoe, a use-of-force instructor with the PRTC, is to understand the model and translate it into action quickly, and under dif-

ficult circumstances. Scenario-based training is intended to help officers deal with the unexpected. It’s like a “stress inoculation,” Hiscoe says, that will hopefully inure them to the chaos of the moment, and help them make clear-headed choices when faced with real situations. My hands are already shaking as I cinch up the belt that holds my retractable baton, my pepper

spray, and a handgun that’s been loaded with f/x rounds. I’ve got an armoured vest on, and a helmet with a visor that makes me look and sound like Darth Vader. Hiscoe sketches the scenario – to a point. My job is to react, then explain what I did and why. The door opens and I sense trouble. The male tells me the woman isn’t home and identifies himself as her husband.

He says they’ve worked things out. But there’s tension in his voice and aggression in his actions. There’s a court order prohibiting the man from contact with his wife, so I tell him he’s under arrest. His anger rises and things start to move fast. He moves toward me swearing, then backs away – a sign of submission? He opens a kitchen drawer and I glimpse a gun. As I struggle to unholster mine, he yells he’ll count to five then “put me six feet under!” I yell at him to put down his gun. He cocks his weapon and continues to count. At three I fire into his chest and he drops to the floor. It’s over within seconds. My pulse races, my hands shake. I hear Hiscoe’s voice behind me, prompting me to pick up the man’s weapon, otherwise I would have just stood there. It was only an exercise, but my every nerve is on fire. We sit down and Hiscoe asks me to explain what happened. It’s a critical part of the training experience, he says. It’s not enough to act, officers also need the ability to reconstruct what took place and clearly identify and articulate the motives behind the actions they took. I was sent to serve a subpoena, he says, and now there’s a man dead or dying on a kitchen floor. Why? That accountability has become even more important since high-profile cases like the death of Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver Airport three years ago. Since then, the court of public opinion has been as quick as it is has been damning, particularly if speculation is fueled by an absence of fact. “We need to articulate our actions better than we have,” Hiscoe says. If officers are going to go into dangerous situations they need the tools to explain their actions in a way that is honest and reflective of the multitude of circumstances they encountered and dealt with in a split second, he says. The goal is to illuminate – not obfuscate the event – so lessons can be learned, lives can be saved, and incidents avoided. Greg Knill is editor of The Chilliwack Progress

A unique way for youth to express themselves is getting off the ground tonight in the Heritage Park cafeteria. One of the lead organizations helping bring the idea to life is Mission Restorative Resolutions (MRR). “The reason we’re doing this is because the [forum theatre] we did last February had such incredible

outcomes,� said Darryl Gehlen, MRR manager. Youth who spoke started to become more self-aware, learn life skills and establish a yet-undiscovered connection to the community. “Forum theatre is just a vehicle for those outcomes.� This event sees youth perform without a script and express themselves about whatever they are feeling or thinking, said Gehlen, but the “line between the audience

and the actors is blurred.� The crowd is encouraged to take part in the play, he continued. Tonight’s event is a planning initiative where interested parties can learn more about forum theatre and get involved in a number of capacities, Gehlen said, including helping create a non-profit society that would ensure the event is sustainable. The meeting happens at 6:30 p.m. The school is located at 33700 Prentis Ave.

If organizers can collect 40 per cent of the signatures that were on the last voting list, Marc Dalton will be forced to fight for his seat in a byelection. He only squeaked by winning in 2009 with a 68-vote margin of victory. About 170 volunteers, many from outside Maple Ridge-Mission, are ready to hit the streets Feb. 26 and collect those names. Workers are at the halfway point in Oak Bay-Gordon Head where they’re trying to unseat MLA Ida Chong. They need to collect about 16,000 names and so far have 8,000. “So we’re going to head over there next weekend and help out and learn all we can,” said Corisa Bell who’s organizing the Maple Ridge campaign. They hope they can apply that knowledge to their own campaign in which they have 60 days to collect just more than 14,000 signatures.

The fact that some L Liberal leadership candiddates are calling for advvancing the HST refereendum from September tto spring doesn’t matter tto Bell. Dalton Neither does Christy Clark’s suggestion about allowing MLAs a free vote in the legislature. Liberals have already voted — for the HST and she doubts they’d change their minds. “I don’t believe that for a moment. “The majority of people still do not trust the Liberals. “Nothing the Liberals say makes a difference so how can you trust them at this point?” When anti-HST campaigners wanted to hold the referendum earlier, the Liberals said that was impossible. Now some leadership candidates say that September date can be changed. “The entire time they’ve been saying this isn’t possible so we have to assume what they’ve been saying isn’t true. There’s just zero faith in the Liberal party at this time.” And even if the referendum resoundly defeats the HST, Bell questions whether the government would honour the result and cancel the tax. While the tax, which combines the seven per cent provincial sales tax with the five per cent goods and service tax, has been in place for six months, Bell says no one is getting used to it. Most goods and services didn’t see their tax rates change but restaurant meals and hairdressing are two areas where people now have to pay another seven per cent. “Nobody is used to it. All the feedback is the HST is devastating people.”

BC Hydro smart meters expected later this year BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

BC Hydro is getting ready to install â&#x20AC;&#x153;smart metersâ&#x20AC;? across the province that will tell customers how much electricity theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using at different times of the day. But unlike Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smart meters, the B.C. program will not immediately come with mandatory higher rates for peak period use and lower rates for nonpeak times such as late at night. In its business case for the new meters, released Tuesday, BC Hydro says customers will be offered an opportunity to choose â&#x20AC;&#x153;time of useâ&#x20AC;? rates if they want them. But that promise only lasts until all the new meters are installed, by the end of 2012. The completion date was dictated by the B.C. governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest energy plan, part of Premier Gordon Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to encourage new clean energy sources and stop net electricity imports to B.C. BC Hydro says it is still in the early stages of determining its rate structure for the smart meter era, and all rate

Computer display shows how smart meter will give running information about electricity consumption and cost when customers log in to their BC Hydro accounts. BC HYDRO

changes must be approved by the B.C. Utilities Commission. The program is budgeted to cost $930 million, including meters, wireless networks and in-home displays for customers. NDP energy critic and leadership candidate John Horgan said a new time-of-day rate structure is inevitable, but it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be imposed until customers have smart meters. He continues to question the high initial cost, especially as BC Hydro raises rates and

contracts with highercost private power producers. He suggested the money would be better spent helping people install energy-saving home upgrades such as insulation and double-glazed windows. BC Hydro estimates that the smart meter program will produce a net savings of $500 million over the next 20 years, through improved reliability and efficiency as well as conservation of energy. The smart meters will report consumption

automatically, eliminating the need for meter readers, and the new meters will also detect power outages and electricity theft. Installation is to begin by mid-2011, and customers will receive notices along with their bills when installers are coming to their community. Once a smart meter is installed, customers with computers will be able to log into their secure BC Hydro account and see a nearly real-time display of electricity use.

A change in federal rules will now drop the amount homeowners can borrow out of their property to 85 per cent of the value. Often these funds have been used for renovations or debt consolidation. METRO

A trio of mortgage rule changes were introduced earlier this week with overall aims of helping consumers reduce debt. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said Monday the new federal rules will see the maximum amortization period dropped from 35 to 30 years, those refinancing can now only borrow against 85 per cent of the value of their homes and finally, federal insurance backing on lines of credit secured by property is being withdrawn. Flaherty said these measures will protect the stability of the Canadian economy and comes after a recent warning from the Bank of Canada that domestic debt is now the highest ever recorded. Mission mortgage broker Doug Lifford said the changes arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bad idea as most Canadians are carrying too much debt. Locally, most people wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be much affected by the changes, he said. The decrease in amortization is not too big a deal, the National Mortgage Service business owner explained. A $300,000 mortgage at 3.65 per cent at 30 years will now cost that homeowner an extra $106 a month. While not a lot of money, Lifford said this will force first-time homebuyers to look more closely at what they can afford, but it is still possible to buy a home with only five per cent down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are prudent changes,â&#x20AC;? he noted. The new rules only affect mortgages attained with a less than 20 per cent downpayment and come into effect March 18.

Practice paying off: coach Mission Secondary School’s ski and snowboard team had its first race of the season at Blackcomb last Saturday. And according to coach Peter Anderson, it would appear the team training at Hemlock Mountain Resort between races is starting to pay off. In the skiing division, Natasha Crick came second, just a half second off first in combined times. Elizabeth Janze, in her second year racing, came 10th. Mariah Hunter

was a strong 11th, while her sister, Christy, new to the team this year, placed 18th. Exchange student, Katja Kreuger earned 15th, and Samantha Horacsek was in the top 20 at 18th. The boy skiers are in a building program at Hemlock and are learning fast. Leonard Baecker was 30th, Virgil Hirtz placed right behind at 31st. Logan Bryan was 34th, with Connor Brisson, and Alex Janze coming in 40th, and 41st respectively.

“Most of the guys are new this year so it’s good to see them competing so well,” said Anderson. In the snowboarding division, Tessa McKamey came in first. The boys did a fair job as well. Jason Leiva was tops for MSS in 12th place, Howard Roblee was 28th; Ian Crawford and Cody Sharp, two new boarders, pulled up the back end but as it is their first year they should improve through the season. The next league race is Jan. 30.

Mission Secondary School’s ski team is off to a positive start, according to coach Peter Anderson. The team competed in the first league race of the season last Saturday, which saw several members post some great times and results. Above left: Tessa McKamey (at the gate) placed first in the snowboarding division. Lining up behind her are Elizabeth Janze and Natasha Crick. Above: Katja Krueger placed 15th. PETER ANDERSON PHOTOS

Icebreakers hitting stride HPSS Highlanders second in league with 12 wins in 14 games play, 17th in B.C. BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

The run up to the playoffs is shaping up to be an exciting one for the Mission Icebreakers. The local junior B team has posted only two losses in the last 14 games, and coach Craig Sherbaty said a recent trade that saw Lyndon Enger come aboard to tighten up the defence is just one of the reasons for the late success. “He’s helped by bringing his size and grit,” said Sherbaty. Some timely goals, “stingy” penalty killing and a special focus on defense has enabled the team to put down some tough opponents.

Goaltending from both Lukas Simpson and Michael Barr has been unreal, he continued The two losses came against the Richmond Sockeyes, the most recent Jan. 16 in which the local

squad was put down 4-1. Sherbaty and the coaching staff are working on fine-tuning the power play but are overall pleased with the way the boys are playing. The Harold Brittain conference is a tight one, he continued, and Mission sits with 31 points and a 13-17 record, five points ahead of Aldergrove, and only two points behind Ridge Meadows. There are 14 games left and Sherbaty is hoping for another pair of back-to-back wins this weekend against Squamish (Jan. 22) and a home game versus North Delta (Jan. 23) to rocket the Icebreakers further up the standings.

The Heritage Park Highlanders senior girls basketball team sits with a 7-1 record in league play — and that’s with the coach lamenting about missed shots. The senior girls squad has been playing solidly so far, said Chan, but two key Grade 12 players who have been missing the past few games while on the injured list have dropped the team competitiveness from where the coach wants it to be.

“We’ve done good and bad things and we haven’t been overly consistent, but we’re still in the top 20 of the province,” said Chan. “We just don’t score.” Aside from standout player Erin Chambers, the next two players who regularly made baskets were the two injured girls. One returned at the beginning of the week, he noted. Building shootings skills during the season is a hard road to follow as the See HERITAGE Page 18

ot off the news wire this week: trout shrink! A group of Norwegian and Finnish scientists have recently observed that during cold temperatures, salmoniods can reduce their body length up to 10 per cent. It is believed that they do this by reducing the gel in their vertebral disks. Add this new revelation to the fact that a fish’s whole metabolism slows down in relation to dropping temperatures. Along with the fact they can also change their skin colour to adapt to their surroundings (science has documented that trout call change colour completely in 36 hours), and one gets a glimpse into

what science has named functional ecology. Fish are also able to change colour to hide from predators, regulate food intake and digestion with metabolism along with conserving energy by reducing body size. After reviewing all this data, one question stands out in my mind. How big was my friend Dave Rice’s 44 inch, fly caught, Thompson River Steelhead, before it shrank? One can only guess. The report The ice is off our Lower Mainland lakes but it will take a day or two of sunny skies to get the fish feeding actively again. If you are going try a slow

retrieve or troll with: Big Black, Woolly Bugger, Micro Leach, Sixpack, Dragonfly Nymph, Halfback, Doc Spratley, or Zulu. Our Lower Mainland beach and estuary fisheries for searun cutthroat are likely your best bet until all Je the high water recedes.

majority of practices are used to make the team gel as a unit. Those individual skills need to be worked on in the offseason, he stated.

Chan said half the team graduates at the end of the year but there are bright spots on the horizon, especially the Grade 10 sisters, Chelsea and Mackenzie Fowler. “They’ve really stepped up for us. They’ve been

starting regularly,” he said. The Highlanders next play against WJ Mouat at home tonight. The team hosts the eight-team Bagpipe Invitational Jan. 2930. Only one team isn’t ranked in the top 20.

Information on 2011 dog licences

PAY IT

Municipal Hall Hours:: Monday to Frida Friday, ay, 8:00am to 4:30p.m. excludi excluding ing statuto statutory ory h holidays olidays

The district would like to remind everyone that notices to purchase new dog licences have recently been sent to all previously registered dog owners. If you purchase your dog licence before Feb. 1, 2011 you will receive a discount of $5 for each license you purchase. The fees collected are used to help fund the cost of animal control services in the Municipality. Just as importantly, the licence you purchase identifies you as the dog’s owner. This is important if you need to be contacted because your dog has been found or injured. If you do not purchase a licence you will be in violation of the municipal bylaw. If you have any questions or require more information, please contact the inspection services department at 604-820-3727. Dog licences can be purchased either at the District of Mission municipal hall located at 8645 Stave Lake St., or at Mission Animal Control Services located at 9541 Woodward St.

COMMUNITY GRANT APPLICATIONS

Time to renew business licences District of Mission municipal business licence renewals have recently been sent to all previously registered businesses. Please note the following parts of Business Licence Bylaw 3964-2007: • Section 9.3 which states that if a licensee continues to carry on business within the District of Mission and does not renew and pay for their license prior to Feb. 1 of each license period (Jan. 1 to Dec.

Forward

Business Licence Bylaw 39642007 Section 3.1, also states that no person shall carry on any business within the district unless that person is the holder of a valid and subsisting license issued under the provisions of this bylaw for the business so carried on.

Fire safety tips for winter Winter is the worst season for fires in Canada. That is why all Canadians must be mindful of the importance of fire prevention. The following fire safety tips can be helpful in preventing a fire in your home. • Any heating appliances such as space heaters should not have anything combustible close by, and need at least one meter of space around them. Inspect the electrical cord attached.

If it overheats, you have a fire hazard. Always look for a shut off tipping feature when purchasing a portable space heater. The dangers of extension cords: • Extension cords are a common cause of electrical fires. You must be careful to use only extension cords that are rated for the power used by the device they are powering. • Extension cords must

never be run inside walls or under rugs or furniture. They can be damaged by traffic or heavy furniture and start arcing which can lead to a fire. • Extension cords can get warm during use and must be able to dissipate this heat or they can start a fire. For any fire safety questions you can contact Mission Fire/Rescue Service weekdays at 604-820-3794, or check the district website at www.mission.ca/fire.

2011 Reel on the River

Music at the Mac presents Kat

Jack Goes Boating Date: Feb. 7 USA, romantic comedy (PG) Language: English Philip Seymour Hoffman’s (Capote) directorial debut is an unconventional tale of love, betrayal and friendship set against the backdrop of working-class New York City. Based on an off-Broadway play, Jack Goes Boating centres on Jack, a reggae-loving limo driver who

Wahamaa and guests, 8 p.m. at the Mission Arts Centre, 33529 First Ave. Tickets are $10 and available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue or at the door. For more information call 604-826-0029.

Incendies Date: Mar. 14 Canada, drama (N/R) Language: French with English subtitles

is that the financial crisis which kicked the world economy into the worst financial disaster since the Great Depression, could have been avoided.

Screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and based on an internationally acclaimed play, Incendies follows two siblings who try to unravel the mystery of their mother’s life. When a notary reads the mother’s will to her twins they are surprised to learn of a father they thought was dead and a brother of whom they have never heard. They decide to travel to their mother’s homeland of Lebanon in search of the truth. Slowly they piece together Nawal’s heartbreaking story and her exceptional courage, from the village where she was born all the way to Canada. Set against the bloody Lebanese civil war, director Denis Villeneuve has moved production outside of North America and created a “real masterwork.”

Made in Dagenham Date: Feb. 28 UK, social comedy (N/R) Language: English The irrepressible Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky) leads this supremely talented cast, directed by Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls), in a rambunctious comedy of the 1968 strike at Britain’s Ford car plant in Dagenham. Female workers walked out of the plant protesting against sexual discrimination. Taking their cause to Ford headquarters and Whitehall resulted in equal pay for equal work across the globe — no small feat in any era. Expertly weaving history with comedy and drama we witness not only the actual strike but the warmth and individuality of the women involved. Details of the UK in the 1960s take us inside each character’s world. This truly inspiring story was a crowd-pleaser at the Vancouver Film Festival and is not to be missed.

The Illusionist Date: Mar. 28 UK/France, animated drama (PG) Language: English/French Based on an original screenplay by French comedian/filmmaker, Jacques Tati, The Illusionist is an animated film of grace and unique beauty. Set in Paris, London and Edinburgh in the 1950s the shabby, struggling illusionist, Monsieur Tatischeff, is forced to accept work in far-flung fringe theatres, bars and cafes. During an engagement in the Scottish Isles he meets Alice, a poor young girl who believes his tricks to be real magic. Enchanted by her enthusiasm, the illusionist conjures up increasingly lavish gifts, desperate not to disappoint her. This is old-school, hand-drawn animation with a penciland-watercolour look and little dialogue. The shimmering colours and memorable characters will leave you charmed and delighted.

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Ryan star in Jack Goes Boating, the first film of the season for Reel on the River on Feb. 7.

lives a quiet, unremarkable life. When two friends, looking to break him out of his quiet existence, introduce him to Connie, Jack is soon inspired to learn to cook, pursue a new career and take swimming lessons so he can give Connie the romantic boat ride she wants. This is a charming slice-of-life story that shows us how love can be funny, awkward and important, often at the same time. Inside Job Date: Feb. 14 USA, documentary (N/R) Language: English A “how-it-happened” documentary, Inside Job is the definitive screen investigation of the recent global economic crisis. Narrated by Matt Damon in suitably wry style, it is directed by Charles Ferguson who proves to be one of the most astute critics of the carefully mounted campaign to defraud people of their money. In a series of interviews, the filmmaker pins wiggling financiers to the wall with well-informed arguments. The end result of this film’s precise and careful analysis

Goody Too Shoes WINTER CLEARANCE SALE LE E

The old adage to “forgive and forget” is often much easier said than done. It seems that a part of us just won’t let us forget; and, if we can’t forget the wrong that was done to us, it may be nearly impossible to forgive. And although sometimes it just feels so good to hold onto that “righteous” anger; we should ask ourselves, who we are actually harming by holding onto all of this negative energy. The person who slighted us, whether in reality or just in our imagination, may be blissfully unaware of the great wrong which they have committed. Meanwhile, we are stewing in anger, resentment, and all kinds of negativity. So, we should get over it. It may be wise to remember who lied to us or cheated us, if only to avoid repeating past mistakes, but this doesn’t require holding onto all of the attendant negative emotions. If we can’t let go of our anger, perhaps we should talk to the person we are angry with, after we have had a chance to calm down. But, we should do so with an eye towards resolving our differences rather than winning the fight or shaming our enemy. The sooner we let our anger go, the sooner we can move on to more productive pursuits. Therefore, putting away falsehood, let every one speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil. R.S.V. Ephesians 4.25-27 St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church http://pccweb.ca/stpauls-mission

JOHN FINLEY ARNOTT HAMILTON

August 10, 1954 – January 8, 2011 John passed away suddenly on January 8th, 2011 at home with his wife Ingried by his side. John will be forever loved and remember by his wife of 32 years, Ingried, his sons David and Brian, brothers Michael (Debbie) and Patrick, sister Mary (Mike), father-in-law Dieter, mother-inlaw Ilse, brother-in-law Juergen, nieces Ashley-Danae, Katie, Olivia, Alexis, and Kyleen, and nephews Colin and Martin, and many other close family and friends. John was predeceased by his father Jim Hamilton (James) in 2005 and his mother Lorna Mae Hamilton in 1998. John was born and spent the early years of his life in Mission, British Columbia. John pursued his passion of music at an early age, becoming a Radio DJ at CFER in Abbotsford, and was recruited by a number of radio stations in the lower mainland, but decided to follow his dream of becoming an RCMP officer. In 1974 John achieved his goal, and graduated from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police training camp with Troupe 26. John spent the early years of his RCMP career at various posts around B.C., and in 1977 he was stationed in Alexis Creek, where he met and married the love of his life, Ingried. John retired from the RCMP in 2000, after 25 years of service, and moved to Kamloops to take on a position with WorkSafeBC. John surrounded himself with family and friends that loved him dearly. He had a passion for hockey and coached his sons’ teams, and later moved into a league director’s role. John was an avid fisherman and golfer and enjoyed nothing more than working on his swing with his friends. A celebration of John’s life was held on January 15th, 2011 at 2:00 p.m at Thompson Rivers University, 900 McGill Rd, in the Grand Hall of the Campus Activity Center. You will be missed. Ingried, David and Brian In lieu of flowers, please honour John’s memory with a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 201 – 635 Victoria Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 2B3.
