Trustees rescind contentious policy School board policy 11 is no more BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

A series of policy changes proposed last month made their way back to the board of school trustees Tuesday night, with one of the most contentious being deleted entirely. Policy 11 granted the superintendent, through the board of trustees, certain powers and responsibilities. Its existence became an election issue in November, with several candidates, including newly elected trustees Jim Taylor and Edie Heinrichs (who recently legally changed her last name from Lissimore), calling for its rescindment. And by a vote of 3-2, with incumbent trustees Randy Cairns and Carol Hamilton against, policy 11 has now been erased. The core of the debate was the perception of an erosion of trustee powers. “I don’t know the rationale for this policy. We’re not taking away any of our authority. [The policy] is about delegating administrative authority to the superintendent,” said Cairns. “This [rescindment] seems a

bit premature without in-depth discussion. This changes how we do business,” said Hamilton, who also asked if a replacement policy will be generated. The short timeline was also questioned by the incumbents. Most policy changes are debated and examined for about two months before a decision is made, noted Hamilton. Vice-chair Taylor said “we’ve had lots of discussion since this issue came out during the election. We give all our authority away” with this policy, and the superintendent’s roles and responsibilities are already detailed in policy 16. “The community wants it to go,” he finished. “Not all the community,” Hamilton rebutted. Board chair Heinrichs pointed out the policy didn’t exist before 2009 and the district ran fine. The trustee code of ethics will continue to exist after its removal was voted down 3-2, with Shelley Carter, Cairns and Hamilton voting against. Taylor and Heinrichs said the policy See BOARD Page 4

Picking through Mission The Mission Record caught up with Scott Cozens and Sheldon Smithens Friday afternoon, just as they were wrapping up shooting for an episode. The popular co-hosts of Canadian Pickers, which airs on the History Channel, dug through the old ferry moored in the Fraser River off Cooper Avenue, west of Mission, and were most excited to take home this anchor and life preserver.

New bills help seize digital information BY PHIL MELYNCHUK Black Press

Three bills on Parliament’s agenda that have upset privacy watchdogs are drawing the same reaction from local NDP critic Elizabeth Rosenau. She says Bills C-50, C-51 and C-52 will turn Internet service providers into “agents of the state,” because they’ll have to acquire equipment that will allow interception of communications and provide details about their clients to police. The government hasn’t made the case about why it needs the greater powers, she added. “We don’t know where this is going,” said Rosenau who unsuccessfully sought the NDP federal nomination last election. “Over time, it could change things to include a lot. Basically, it’s Orwellian. It’s a Big Brother thing.” Under the bills, left over from the previous session of Parliament, Internet companies would have six months to acquire the technology that would allow them to intercept customer communications. Under Bill C-52, police will be able to get customers’ names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, IP addresses and electronic serial numbers, without getting a warrant and without a crime having been committed. The actual interception of e-mails would still require a warrant. Bill C-51 allows police to tell a company to preserve its data for a temporary period until a warrant is available and also allows, with a warrant, activation of the tracking devices, such as GPS devices that are found in cars and cellphones, while making it tougher to get a warrant to plant a tracking device on an individual. Police, provided they have authorization from a court-ordered warrant, can activate a data recorder that will allow them realtime tracking of Internet communications. Bill C-50 allows the use of a telephone recorder without a warrant if the situation is urgent, something the Criminal Code already allows. The measures bother Rosenau because of the government’s overall get-tough-on-crime approach, demonstrated in its omnibus crime bill, which has passed through the House of Commons and is now in the Senate. “They basically have a radical agenda when it comes to crime. They’re seeing crime where we don’t see crime.” When you increase surveillance and make Internet providers agents of the government, you don’t know where it’s going to go, she said. She pointed out that China controls its Internet by targeting its

An artist’s rendering of what Howard Meakin is proposing to bring to Mission’s waterfront. RECORD FILE IMAGE

Offer thoughts on Meakin proposal Monday evening The foreshore application for the Sturgeon’s on the Fraser project goes to public hearing Jan. 30 at municipal hall. The proposal, spearheaded by Vancouver developer Howard Meakin, involves refurbishing the Expo ‘86 “McBarge” and converting it into an anchored $10-million

floating restaurant and marina at the foot of Horne Street. Previously stalled by the last council because the proposal lacks a proper parking plan, the new council voted Jan. 9 to send the foreshore zoning CD-23 to a public hearing for consideration. If approved, the developer would still have to come back with a

parking proposal on the adjacent uplands at the former Meeker Cedar Mill site. The application proposes a coffee shop, restaurant and tap house, general office use limited to river-based tourism, guiding or travel and recreational use limited to a marina. A gift and souvenir shop are also planned.

Under Bill C-52, police will be able to get customers’ names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, IP addresses and electronic serial numbers, without getting a warrant and without a crime having been committed. COLLEEN FLANAGAN PHOTO

enforcement at Internet service providers, rather than focusing on the millions of subscribers. “There’s a lot of spying that goes on and there’s a lot of politics, too.” Jennifer Stoddart, Privacy Commissioner of Canada, feels the same way and says so in an October letter to Public Safety Minister Vic Toews. “Despite repeated calls, no systematic case has yet been made to justify the extent of the new investigative capabilities that would have been created by the bills. “Canadian authorities have yet to provide the public with evidence to suggest that CSIS or Canadian police cannot perform their duties under the current regime. One-off cases and isolated incidents should not prove the rule, nor should exigent or emergency circumstances, for which there are already Criminal Code provisions.” Stoddart said the bills would have allowed government to subject more individuals to surveillance and scrutiny. “In brief, these bills went far beyond simply maintaining investigative capacity or modernizing search powers. “Rather, they added significant new capabilities for investigators to track, and search and seize digital information about individuals. “ She adds, there is not even a requirement for the commission of a crime to justify access to personal information – real names, home

address, unlisted numbers, e-mail addresses, IP addresses and much more – without a warrant. “Only prior court authorization provides the rigorous privacy protection Canadians expect.” Ontario’s privacy commissioner Ann Cavoukian also opposes the laws and has set up a website on the topic (http://realprivacy.ca/). However, according to Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission MP Randy Kamp, the legislation is an attempt to keep up with changing technologies and is needed to combat child pornography, criminal gangs and terrorists – a similar approach to that used in Sweden, the U.S. and Australia. The bills were left over from the previous session of Parliament and could see changes by the time they’re re-introduced. “We expect this will have significant debate.” Kamp repeated Toews’ contention that the ability to collect subscriber information is no different than looking in a phone book or matching addresses with phone numbers. As for the claim that the legislation will allow police to intercept e-mail messages without a warrant, “that’s a fabrication that’s been floating around for awhile about this bill and it’s just not true. “Our government is pretty committed to not allowing police to read e-mails without a warrant.”

A request for proposal to find a consultant to conduct the core services review for the District of Mission has been issued. The closing date is Feb. 22 and the winning contract will review program and service costs, service delivery methods, the number of employees and then compare that information with other communities. This will be done “while keeping in mind that no two com-

munities are alike,” said finance director Ken Bjorgaard Monday evening during council. There are certain limitations to the review, such as the RCMP, library, regional water and sewer services and fee for services, since these are delivered by third party organizations. “Having asked for this as long as the spring of 2010 I couldn’t be happier to see it finally happening,” said Coun. Jenny Stevens. “I feel like we’ve been looking through a stained glass window trying to find detail and this is

going to help us open up the window and see into the organization,” said Coun. Dave Hensman. A $100,000 budget for the review has been approved, with $75,000 coming from council’s 2012 contingency account and the balance from the financial stabilization reserve fund, should it be required. The finance department expects a March 13 start, running approximately three months before the final report comes back June 13. Mayor Ted Adlem said the review will help craft the 2013 budget.

was redundant given trustees’ responsibilities are defined in other policies. A heavily reworded policy 16, which details recruitment, selection and termination of senior administration staff, was passed unanimously, while a bylaw reviewing policy eight, board organization and operation, was given the first two readings Tuesday night. The changes proposed include removing the superintendent or secretary treasurer from calling

a special meeting of the board, and nixing “medical matters of students or employees, other matters a board committee considers appropriate, and such matters as the board may determine” from the items that should be discussed in-camera. As well, a rewording of how minutes are kept, and an addition detailing the passage and amendments of bylaws are included in the potential alteration to ensure the board operates in line with the School Act, which Taylor says has not happened for several years. During question period, former

trustee Karen Petty, who did not run in the November election, asked if the board has put effort into a strategic direction and noted she hasn’t heard much discussion about students so far. Trustees are focusing their early efforts on governance, because “to be a board you have to establish how leadership will look. That’s how we focus on students success, by ensuring support is given to staff. Governance establishes a baseline for that support,” said Heinrichs. “The board doesn’t go into the classrooms.”

Cougar spotted around Stave Lake Road, Parr There is at least one cougar in Mission, amid a number of false sightings. Cody Ambrose, a local conservation officer, said he has confirmed a few reports of a cougar, but couldn’t say whether it was one or several. One resident posted a Facebook picture of what appears to be a cougar spotted Monday evening at 7 p.m. at Dewdney Trunk Road and Cemetery Avenue. Ambrose said he found cougar tracks around Stave Lake Road and Parr Avenue, a greenbelt area opposite to where the picture was taken. Other unconfirmed reports include a cougar attacking a house cat on McEwen Avenue in Hatzic Tuesday morning, one near Rockridge in Hatzic on Saturday, and two adults and a cub at 12 Avenue and Cedar Street. But Ambrose said not every call is legitimate. “We’ve received numerous calls about cougar sightings and a number of them are false,” he said, before adding it isn’t unusual. “The

The first big snowfall of 2012 to hit Mission has cost the district roughly $100,000 out of the $360,000 budgeted for the year. Matt Dunham, operations manager for the district, said increased snowfall in recent years has led municipalities to ask for more snow removal money, likely to increase to $500,000 in the coming budget. Mayor Ted Adlem at council Monday addressed the municipality’s snow efforts. He said he received about 50 e-mails offering mixed reviews and two voicemails that summed up the mood. “The first voicemail three or four days ago was complimenting the staff of the District of

Mission on how well they had kept the snow controlled and how awesome it was to drive around the hills. “And the next voice mail, five minutes after the first one, asked me if we owned a snow plow,” he said, generating laughter from the gallery. Reached by phone on Tuesday, Adlem elaborated. “During a heavy snowfall you’re never going to have great roads, and unfortunately there are those folks that just don’t understand,” he said. Despite the difficulties, Adlem thanked snow removal staff in public works on behalf of council. “There’s a bunch of people that were working non-stop without any sleep, without any food, and without any family time.”

Shirts

Adlem said staff follow a procedure to maintain the roads as best they possibly can with the 13 pieces of equipment owned by the district, working around the clock to clear and remove snow from roads and parking spaces. The mayor acknowledged some streets might never get plowed during a heavy snowfall since the priority is to keep the main thoroughfares open. Some residents have complained about the lack of plowing on First Avenue/Lougheed Highway between Grand and Murray streets. Dunham said the district is only responsible for clearing the parking portion of downtown, while the responsibility for clearing the highway falls to the province. “But we’re not going

to be on their case to plow it because they don’t have anywhere to put it,” he said, adding that trucking snow out of the downtown is costly. And when the province plows snow off the street into the parking spots, it only creates problems for the municipal plows to find a new place to put it. Dunham said Mission would be happier if the province would just dump salt and sand instead and let the district deal with the snow. “We’ve had some discussions with taking [Lougheed] over, and that’s something I think we’ll be discussing more in the next while,” he said. With temperatures returning to 10 Celsius on Tuesday, coupled with rain, attention has shifted to potential flooding.

OPINION

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

Stay off the phone In the first 20 months of British Columbia’s distracted driving law, police issued 46,008 tickets to drivers for using hand-held electronic devices while behind the wheel. Another 1,372 tickets were issued for e-mailing or texting while driving. The ministry of the Solicitor-General says that means 16 people are still alive thanks to a 12 per cent reduction in motor vehicle accidents involving fatalities and serious injuries. The statistics suggest the two-year old ban on talking or texting on a cell phone while driving has been effective. But as anyone who spends any amount of time on the province’s roads and highways will likely attest, the reality is somewhat different. Drivers are still talking on their cell phones. Some are just more discreet about doing it. They wait until they’re on quieter side streets to unleash their dialing finger, or they look around to ensure no police are nearby. Or they try to hide their activity, keeping their phone out of sight as they press numbers or check their text messages. The scofflaws are gambling they won’t smash into anyone. Or at the very least get caught. And when they do, a recent survey by ICBC says their excuses range from outright defiance at the righteousness of the law, to misguided affection for the feel of the phone in their hand to a wrongheaded belief that making or taking a call while at a red light doesn’t count as driving. The risks presented by distracted driving are very real. In fact, you’re 23 times more likely to get into an accident if you’re using your cell phone while driving. So even though the coast may be clear of vigilant police, stay off the phone while driving. - New Westminster NewsLeader

Questioning U.S. ‘environmentalists’

F

ederal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver set off a loud, but poorly informed debate as environmental hearings began into the Enbridge proposal to pipe Alberta oil to the seaport at Kitimat. Oliver’s open letter blasted foreign-funded environmental groups that “threaten to hijack our regulatory system to achieve their radical ideological agenda.” This letter was seized upon by critics and the media, and misrepresented as an attack on anyone who opposes the pipeline or further expansion of the Alberta oil sands. Of course, all opponents aren’t foreign or radicals. That was made clear when the Enbridge hearings opened in the Haisla village near Kitimat. Haisla members told the throng of out-of-town professional protesters to sit down and shut up. They don’t need self-appointed urbanites to speak for them. The fact of foreign funding is no longer questioned, thanks to research by B.C. blogger Vivian Krause, primarily from U.S. tax returns.

Three years after I first wrote about her work, it is finally part of the national conversation. What is the foreign-funded agenda? Oliver put it this way: “No forestry. No mining. No oil. No gas. No more hydroelectric dams.” Here are three notions that have become entrenched in the urban mind in recent years: Clear-cut logging is by definition bad. Alaska salmon is wild, and thus superior to farmed. Run-of-river hydro destroys rivers. All are aggressively promoted by certain environmental groups. And To all are false. Greenpeace founder-turned-critic Patrick Moore was in Victoria last week to speak to the Truck Loggers’ Association. He pointed out that North American “green building” standards reward locally sourced concrete and steel, but not wood. Why? Because big international organizations like Greenpeace and Sierra Club are

so invested in opposition to logging, they end up backing environmentally destructive policies. Protesting an oil pipeline from Alberta to the U.S., Hollywood darling Robert Redford recited the usual talking points about the “tar sands scourge.” Alberta oil sands can be seen from space, Redford moaned. So can Venezuela oil sands, a major U.S. source. So can Redford’s vast Utah ranch and ski resort development. Redford parrots the claim that oil sands extraction produces three times the greenm house gases of conventional oil. This is the big lie of “tar sands” campaigners. Three quarters of emissions from all crude are generated when the refined fuel is burned by things like Redford’s limo, or the airline for which he voiced TV commercials. The Alberta government reports that average emissions from oil sands crude

are 107 grams per megajoule, slightly more than U.S. Gulf Coast crude at 104. California heavy crude comes in higher, at 114. And if carbon is the issue, what about U.S. coal mines that tear the tops off mountains and run the longest trains in world history to feed the country’s 600-plus coal-fired power plants? Where is Redford on that? And hijacking the regulatory process? Look no further than the Dogwood Initiative, an obscure Victoria outfit that admits to taking about 40 per cent of its funding from U.S. sources. Its “mob the mic” campaign signed up 1,600 people to speak at the Enbridge pipeline hearings. Among the signatories are “Cave Man” and “Jonathan Seagull.” But wait, aren’t oil, power and aquaculture companies foreign funded? Certainly some are. The difference is, they create jobs. Professional protesters destroy them. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

YOUR VIEWS Newspaper delivered, but where’s the mail? Editor, The Record: My daughter has a paper route. For the exercise I sometimes do the route for her. On these two snowiest days of the year I shoveled the driveway and sidewalks (both sidewalks, ours and the city, which is almost 100 feet long) five times in two days. Roads were almost impassable for two-wheel drive cars and trucks without winter tread. But there I went, to the box to get the papers. Got them and started delivery — snow does not bother an old milkman. A lot of the sidewalks and drive-

ways were not shoveled, but what the heck. I trudged along and finally got them done. Got back home, hot chocolate waiting for me. About that time I thought of the mail; none on Monday, nothing on Tuesday. So I called the post office. No answer. Called the 1-800 number. Got a chap who told me there would be no mail delivery until further notice due to road closures and impassable roads in the area. Asked if the carriers had a strong union, he hesitated and told me yes. I found it strange; here I am, 71

years old, delivering newspapers on foot, through snow above my boots, but the posties can’t make it because of road closures? I only saw one closed road on Monday. Whatever happened to the old verse about the mail must go through? Oh, that’s right, they changed the words. If I look out and see a snowflake, to hell with it, I’m not going out in that. Of course they used to deliver to the door, didn’t they? Richard Moore Mission

Situation Shovelling wet, sandy snow not so is a difficult physical task great in Mission’s public schools Editor, The Record: Re: Let the good work continue in Mission’s public schools, Jan. 12 edition. The finances of school district 75 are in shambles, the relationship with the union and morale are at an all-time low, overspending is rampant and the superintendent has been given more power than ever and seems to rule the district without any opposition (with nearly $200,000 in salary and perks). Parents, in the meantime, are to pay more and more for even the most basic necessities and kids are struggling more than before. While I like to keep things positive, let’s face it, past trustees have failed our kids miserably. It’s time to cut the crap and bring solutions. Some (although I’d hoped all) trustees have been replaced, and that’s a good first step. Let’s think outside the box, for our kids’ sake. Kevin Francis Mission

Editor, The Record: I wanted to voice my displeasure at the way the roads are cleared during snow storms. I realize it is a big job and responsibility to keep them cleared for emergency vehicles, etc. However, when a person shovels out their driveway only to have it blocked again by the heavy, wet and sometimes laden-with-sand snow, it is very disheartening and a lot of hard, heavy work. Also, at my driveway is a fire hydrant. I try to keep access to it clear but then that high bank of plowed snow is pushed in front of it over and over again. What would happen in case of fire? We are told to go and keep the drains clear to avoid flooding. Yeah,

right! I went out Saturday morning to do just that. The drain is down at my next door neighbour’s place. He is never there, so I thought that I would clear it out. All that rainladen snow is pushed on top, plus the high bank of snow all along the edge of the road. How is anyone, never mind a senior lady, supposed to clean that out? Water has already started to build up in my driveway and I have no way of dealing with it and it has no place to go except into my yard. We pay taxes and the District of Mission have road crews. Let them come and clean up after themselves. I have had enough! Maureen Harper Mission

YOUR DECISION! Council to allow public to decide on $5+ million project for Mission Mission’s new Council has asked the public to decide if the former McBarge, after $5 million refurbishment, should move to Mission. The floating structure will accommodate a second level restaurant of 6,400 square feet plus 3 outdoor patio dining areas; on the main level a 5,200 square foot Tap House/Restaurant; and a 1,780 square foot coffee shop/deli. In addition it will provide a base for floatplane and eco-tourism jet boats. It will generate 135 full time jobs and approximately $100,000 per year in property taxes.

Questions & Answers Can such an ambitious project be successful in Mission? Absolutely, along both sides of the Fraser River from Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Mission on the North bank; to Langley, Abbotsford, and Chilliwack on the south bank there exists a current population of 494,000 within a short commute of Mission. A population of 212,000 lies within a 20 minute commute. Attracting these visitors would provide a boost to Mission’s economy.

Is there any Ànancial risk to the District of Mission? No, no public funds are involved.

Wouldn’t aircraft and jet boats be noisy? They actually make considerably less noise than the 28 trains per day that use the CP tracks. We estimate there would be 4 departures and 4 arrivals per day after the second year of flight operation. With the existing boat launch on Harbour Avenue the number of water jet propelled boats is seasonal and depends largely on the fishing.

How many jobs would this create in Mission?

Public Hearing Monday January 30th, 6:30pm, City Hall Your opportunity to tell Council you support this project which will: • • • • •

Generate $100,000 in tax revenue. Generate 135 new jobs. Provide over $4million in construction in Mission. “Kickstart” development on Mission’s waterfront. Boost tourism to Mission

The equivalent of 135 full time jobs.

As this facility is on the river would it pay taxes and Development Cost Charges?

About the Developer

Yes, property taxes and development cost charges would be paid exactly as if it were land based. Property taxes are estimated at $100,000 per year.

Howard Meakin has over 40 years of experience in the real estate industry as an investor, developer and broker.

Would the project conform to the Building Code?

Mr. Meakin’s first development project occurred in 1969 when he was 24 years old and started acquiring a total of 18 commercial buildings in Vancouver’s Historic Gastown area which he renovated and re tenanted. Over a period of 10 years, he turned this area from a dilapidated skid row warehouse district into one of the best known tourist, dining and residential neighborhoods in Canada.

Yes. It was originally constructed to conform to the Building Code of 1986. The $5 million upgrade would ensure conformance to current codes and it would be subject to the same inspections as a land based structure.

In its current state the vessel looks pretty sad. Is it really in good shape? Yes. It was built to the highest standards and originally intended for permanent use after EXPO 86. A recent marine survey stated the expected life of the vessel to extend to 2085. Before being moved to Mission in preparation for the upgrading work, the vessel will be thoroughly cleaned.

Widespread Support There is widespread support for our project throughout the region, recognising how it will “put Mission on the map” as a tourist destination. The full letters of support are available for inspection at City Hall. Vancouver Coast & Mountains Tourism “What an exciting prospective development”

With that background Mr. Meakin went onto buying existing shopping centres starting with Middlegate Shopping Centre in Burnaby, Meridian Mall in Stony Plain Alberta, Canora Centre Mall in Saskatchewan, Powell River Plaza and West-view Centre in Powell River, Coronation Mall in Ladysmith, Pioneer Plaza in Walnut Grove, and Brooks Landing in Nanaimo.

Tourism Chilliwack

“..would be a beneÀt to the entire tourism industry in the Fraser Valley”

Brian Minter — Minter Gardens

“We are conÀdent it will be a huge boon to the Fraser Valley region”

Tourism Abbotsford

“...would have a profound effect on the regional tourism industry”

Tourism Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows

“… will beneÀt all of our efforts to attract more visitors to the region with economic beneÀts”

Tourism Langley “exciting and welcome addition to the Fraser Valley”

STS Guiding Services, Mission “..an exciting new opportunity for our City”

Fraser River Safari, Mission “.. A stepping stone to take the waterfront to the next level at no cost to the taxpayer”

Westcoast Air “...we fully expect that this development can support daily scheduled Áights to the downtown harbours of Victoria, Nanaimo and potentially Vancouver”

Money added, reorg promised at CLBC

First workshop Saturday at Clarke

BY TOM FLETCHER

A series of inspirational talks kicks off Jan. 28 with a presentation by Spencer West

Black Press

The B.C. government is adding $40 million to support Community Living B.C. and pledging a reorganization to make the Crown corporation more responsive to its 13,000 developmentally disabled adult clients. After reports of a long waiting list for service, and clients being moved from group homes to home-sharing contracts against their wishes, Premier Christy Clark appointed Surrey MLA Stephanie Cadieux as social development minister last September. Cadieux ordered an internal audit and performance review of CLBC and traveled the province to meet with clients and families. “The message that really came through was that their trust in CLBC had been shaken,” Cadieux told a news conference where the audit and other reports were released Thursday. A key problem for CLBC was the push to control costs by moving clients from group homes to homeshare contracts with individual caregivers. Last fall, Cadieux ordered a halt to management bonuses for making these moves, and the audit released Thursday found another problem. It found 11 CLBC employees and managers who took on home care contracts on the side, and two other employees with second jobs working for CLBC contracted agencies. Employees with this conflict of interest are supposed to be removed from awarding contracts in the region, but the audit found this was inadequately tracked and enforced.

Spencer West and a Me to We sponsored workshop will provide inspiration for developing leadership passion and community leadership skills in Mission at the Clarke Foundation Theatre, Jan. 28. There is still time to register for this first session in the leadership series focusing on developing strengths in volunteers. Individuals or organizations can register for any one or all four of the sessions offered in the series. Each session costs $20 to register or $75 for the whole series. The first session runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with Spencer West’s address followed

by the workshop, lunch and more on community leadership. West speaks candidly about the struggles he overcame after losing his legs at the age of five. His thought-provoking message inspires people to find opportunity in challenge. The customized workshop will build skills such as public speaking, consensus building and action planning. Me to We is a Canadian organization that provides motivational speakers and leadership training to inspire social change and action. “Many Mission students have had an opportunity to be involved with Me to We during We Day,” notes leadership chair Michelle Favero. “We are excited to be able to launch the Building Community Leadership program with Spencer, so parents have access to the Me to We inspiration.” Mission, like most small communities,

has a limited group of volunteers who are active in community leadership roles. The Building Community Leadership initiative aims to provide affordable leadership skills training to the community and to develop an ongoing base of volunteers for future growth and community sustainability. The next session in the series will focus on the power of influence and will take place Feb. 28 with NHL legend Ryan Walter and facilitator Christine McLeod’s workshop, the Leader Within. Their subject will be on how to bring out the brilliance of those around you. To register for this session or to find more information on the community leadership series visit www.MissionChamber.bc.ca or contact Building Community Leadership Chair Michelle Favero at manager@missionchamber.bc.ca.

Here are some helpful tips for proper snow removal Living in the Lower Mainland and hearing the word “snow” can be downright chilling. It wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t have to shovel it, but it would seem we have no choice. To make matters

worse, the risk of injury is significantly greater after a good snowfall, so you have to act fast to keep friends and loved ones safe when visiting for the holidays. Driveways and Sidewalks

• As soon as snow or freezing rain begins to fall, spread a melting agent on the driveway. • Grab a shovel and get outside as soon as you can. • If you are unable to remove a patch of

ice, crack it with an ice chisel or heavy-duty scraping tool to expose the surface to the air Melting Agents Spread the granules liberally on the driveway and walkway, but be sure to wear gloves,

as melting agents can sometimes cause mild skin irritation. Snow Shovels -Today’s newer models are made stronger yet lighter to allow you to move snow easier than before. Choose one

with an ergonomically correct handle to prevent straining your back. Snow Pushers They assist you in pushing large volumes of snow from one end of the driveway to the other.

Snow Blowers - Although more expensive than buying a shovel, investing in a good snow blower is ten-fold. A good snow blower will allow you to clear snow in a fraction of the time.

The winter season is the worst for fires in Canada. That is why all Canadians must be mindful of the importance of fire prevention. The following fire safety tips could 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 (three feet) of space around them. Inspect the electrical cord attached. It is 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. That is why 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. Fireplace safety A fireplace becomes dangerous when accumulated tar or creosote catches fire or from uncontrolled burning or overfuelling. Other causes of fireplace-related fire are substandard design or installation and lack of safety precautions. • Open the damper before lighting the fire, and keep it open until the ashes are cool enough to touch. • Ensure the fire is completely out before

going to bed or leaving the house. • Do not store combustible materials such as paper or wood too close to the fireplace. • Use a screen in front of the fireplace opening to protect children and to prevent embers from escaping and igniting carpets, etc. • Never leave children alone near a fireplace. • Use dry, wellseasoned wood in small amounts. • Have chimneys cleaned and serviced at regular intervals by a professional. • Never overload your fireplace. • Never use charcoal started fluids, gasoline or any flammable substance to start fires. • When using artificial logs, burn only one at a time and following instructions on the wrapping. • Always place the ashes in a metal container and take them outside the house. Smoke alarms Most fatal fires happen at night when people are sleeping. A working smoke alarm will detect smoke and sound an alarm to alert you. Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and near each sleeping area. For maximum protection consider installing a smoke detector in each bedroom. Because smoke rises, it is recommended that you place the alarms on the ceiling. Avoid ceilings near bathrooms, heating appliances, windows and ceiling fans. For any fire safety questions you can always contact the Mission Fire/Rescue Service weekdays at 604-820-3794, or check the District of Mission website at www.mission.ca/fire.

Mission policing strategy explained Mission’s top cop laid out his strategic direction for crime fighting at Thursday’s Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Insp. Richard Konarski outlined how policing has changed, how the detachment is structured and the regional and provincial policing resources that are at Mission’s disposal. He then spoke about the strategic direction that has been developed which focuses on three

key areas: organized crime and gangs, youth and domestic violence. Recognizing the connection between organized crime and the drug trade in Mission, the inspector noted the province is committed to working collaboratively with police in combatting the grow-op problem. He went on to speak about how realigning youth at risk will disrupt emerging youth

One of Canada’s most popular country singers is donating his time to put on a concert in Mission to help raise funds for Mission Minor Hockey and KidSport. Aaron Pritchett’s Feb. 11 acoustic performance at the Clarke Theatre starts at 7:30 p.m. and organizers are hoping to sell out the 702-seat venue. “It should be a really fun thing,” said organizer Richard Mooney. In addition to the concert, Pritchett has agreed to play in a charity hockey game at 1:30 p.m. at the Leisure Centre that same day. He will play with the MMH coaches against the Mission Icebreakers, the local junior B team. MMH fundraises to keep the registration fees affordable for families as well as paying for ice and referees. KidSport helps lower income families pay for the registration fees as they believe that no child should sit on the sidelines. General admission tickets will be $25, and for more information call Richard at 604-751-2325 or Tina at 604-751-1643.

What’s Happening Music in Mission

PATCH THE WALL For many years, the church that we attend had a small leak in the slate roof; and this would allow water to run down inside one of the walls and cause plaster in one particular area to discolor and break away. And although there were numerous attempts to repair the leak and plaster over the damaged area, the leak would reappear and the discoloration and damaged plaster would return within a few months after each failed attempt. Every time I went to church and saw the damaged wall, I wondered, do we discolor and destroy our soul like this wall when we sin? When we show repentance, and ask God’s forgiveness for our sinfulness, we make amends with our Creator and our soul is repaired again. However, usually within a short period of time, the discoloration and breaking down of our soul begins, because although we may repent, we do not always make a strong enough effort to further refrain from our transgressions. Our pastor, being a tenacious man, finally saw to it that the roof was repaired properly, and the wall has remained clean now for nearly a year. Similarly, we should be just as tenacious about refraining from sin that is harmful to our soul.

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. R.S.V. Psalm 23:3 St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church http://pccweb.ca/stpauls-mission

Reel on the River’s winter series is back every second Monday beginning Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. at Silver City in the Junction. The film series features five flicks outside mainstream syndication or produced by independent filmmakers, making it a rare viewing opportunity. Festival organizer Beverly James says Sundance Film Festival winner Senna (2010), which looks at the life and death of Brazilian Formula One racing legend Ayrton Senna da Silva, should be well received in a community like Mission that is passionate about racing. The film isn’t backed by a major production company, but has won or been nominated for 12 film awards internationally. “It just doesn’t have any advertising budget so it doesn’t get released anywhere,” she said. Although, The Iron Lady, with Meryl Streep

will play March 26, movies for the Reel on the River are chosen in November, so James said she wasn’t aware that film would be so widely released. But, she added it shouldn’t be a problem for season pass holders to wait until March. “We don’t see any of these films before we choose them, so we’re kind of taking our chances,” said James. Monsieur Lazhar, a Canadian film from Quebec, plays Feb. 27 and is up for an Academy Award for

Best Foreign Film. This is the seventh season of the film festival, which she says has been very popular. And in the previous season James says they even made a little extra money than expected, which will be donated to charity. “We have been fortunate. And I hope we’re entertaining.” Tickets are $10 at the door or $35 for all five movies. Passes are available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe or Shopper’s Drug Mart in Mission and The Reach in Abbotsford.

360 group wins National Award Abbotsford’s own 360 Fabrication Inc. are the recipients of the 2011 Body Shop Magazine’s Custom Refinish award. Awarded annually, it is given to the top custom shop for all of Canada. Up until this year it has never been awarded to a shop on the West Coast. Brothers Rick and Daryl Francoeur (owners/founders) started 360 Fabrication in 2006 as a small auto body shop in a 3,000 s.q. ft. garage. At that time their staff included one painter along with themselves. In five short years they have already grown to become Canada’s second largest custom shop after moving into

a 22,000 sq. ft building located at 31450 Peardonville Avenue in Abbotsford. In addition, 360 is on route to expand their current 33 employees to more than 40. A custom body shop for exotic cars, trucks, hot rods/ muscle cars and bikes, their customer base spans far outside the Lower Mainland. With clients from LA through to Toronto that comprise of corporate clients, rock stars, and even professional athletes. 360 Fabrication is rapidly becoming known for their unique ideas and top notch quality custom work. Rick states that

the rapid expansion, is due to their hands-on approach to their business combined with their passion for building quality vehicles. “Daryl and I are involved with the day to day operations, and control the quality of the work on each project. We always think outside the box and we do work most shops would never even attempt.” Rick informs us that after working in different body shops he was sick and tired of the way they were doing business. “I was frustrated. I felt they put the bottom line first which meant that the customer lost out and that was never ok with me.” 360’s collision repair business

is now part of the Carstar quality collision service chain and they continue to operate to ICBC’s Valet Shop standards. In addition, known for exceeding customers dreams and in many cases re-building their cars from scratch, 360 and Carstar have earned their title as top custom shop in Canada. “We intend to stay on top, to be the best,” says Rick. 360’s recent award from Body Shop Magazine is the latest of about 1,000 awards, some of which include the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce Service Industry Excellence award, the Abbotsford A-list Favorite Auto Body/Repair Shop award and hundreds of custom car trophies. “360 Fabrication is your onestop auto shop and we pride ourselves on superior quality workmanship and customer service. We encourage people to drop by for a coffee and take the 360 tour,” says Rick.

Don Quixote’s quest is a tale of courage and madness that has captivated readers for over four centuries. Now the story is retold with masks, magic, and mayhem in this touring production by Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre. The adaptation by cocreators Peter Anderson and Colin Heath explores the comical and philosophical world of Don Quixote (played by Peter Anderson), a retired country gentleman, who has become obsessed with ancient books of knighthood and chivalry. Inspired by his readings, he sets out on a quest to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked, alongside his faithful and naive squire, Sancho Panza (played by Michel Perron), to whom he has promised wealth and power. Preceded by their reputations everywhere they go, they eventually find themselves asking:

who’s mad in a world gone mad? Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote, published in two volumes a decade apart (1605 and 1615), is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published and was recently voted The Greatest Book of All Time by the Nobel Institute. The envisioning of this famous book includes evocative masks by Melody Anderson and a literary-themed set by David Roberts that takes the audience from Quixote’s candlelit library to a field of hostile windmills to the castle of a duke. “I’m thrilled to be bringing this inventive adaptation of the classic

BIRTHS

7 September, 1951 17 January, 2012 The powerful, creative, talented, generous spirit that was Tony passed peacefully on Tuesday 17 January at Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack. While Tony wanted to live, he knew the catastrophe of pancreatic cancer. He made each step easy on family and friends by accepting his medical condition, getting his affairs in order, and keeping his humour and insight razor sharp. He had closed his company FUBAR Electric and passed the torch for his many projects. Left to miss him most are his family: wife Karen Saenger, mom Phyllis, brothers and their families (Jim and Eileen, Shannon, Jeff, Brendan and Sara; Jo, Owen; Andy and Marilyn, Clayton, Kody; Gerry and Caroline), dad-in-law Adolf, sisters-in-law and their families (Susan and Phill, Ellen and Cameron, Maya, Jessie and Anja). Tony was predeceased by his dad Bob, sister Rosalie, momin-law Lotte, and nephew Morgan. Seldom reverent, Tony was a man of ever-ready contradictions: uncomplicated yet complex, tough but soft, exuberant yet cautious, shy yet engaging, critical and compassionate. He brought the same curiosity, wonder, and affection to the care of small critters as to the workings of the universe. Special thanks to Drs. Winston and Brown at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Dr. Bull at the Cascade Hospice for their personal attention and care. Nurses too numerous to mention will never be forgotten for the gentle and dignified way in which they treated Tony. Please, no flowers. Donations to Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cat friends at the Chilliwack Safe Haven (49843 Chilliwack Central Road, V2P 6H3) or the Chilliwack Hospice Society (45360 Hodgins Ave, V2P 1P5) would be truly appreciated. A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday 27 January at the Woodlawn Mt. Cheam funeral home (45865 Hocking Ave, Chilliwack). Reception to follow at the St Thomas Anglican Church hall (46048 Gore Ave).

GAZSO Amelia (Emily) Elizabeth

Amelia (Emily) Elizabeth Gazso (nee Doka), age 87, of the Cottage Pavillion, Abbotsford, BC, peacefully passed away on January 21, 2012. Emily was the youngest of the family, and enjoyed her farm life with her father, mother, brothers and sisters in Saskatchewan. In 1945 she moved to BC and married Louis Gazso. They started life together on a small farm in Surrey. 1952 saw a move to a larger farm in Bradner where they were able to expand their herd of cattle and pigs, grow raspberries and raise their four sons. When it was time to retire, they sold and moved to a smaller farm on Columbia Road in Abbotsford. Their final move was to their city home on Vinewood Street. Emily, never one to be idle, embarked on a new career with the Menno home where she remained employed until her retirement. After Louisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; death in 1997 she remained in their home, was an avid gardener and enjoyed time with friends and family. Emily was gifted at crocheting, knitting, baking and gardening. There never was a task unchallenged. At Christmas the family looked forward to the many Hungarian culinary treats, especially her Dobos Torte. Emily was predeceased by father and mother, Daniel and Esther Doka; brothers, Dan, John and Joe; sisters, Mary and Julia; and husband, Louis Gazso. Survived by sons, David (Barbara) of Bradner, Ben (Gail) of Abbotsford, Les (Shauna) of Chilliwack and Alex also of Abbotsford; grandchildren, Lee (Christine), Amber (Michael), Alan Blacklock, Hanna and Matthew; great grandchildren, Sydney, Courtney and Macartney. She will be missed. Heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Cottage Pavilion for the care of our mother over the past year. A Service of Remembrance will be held on Friday, January 27, 2012 at 11:30 am at Calvin Presbyterian Church, 2597 Bourquin Crescent, Abbotsford, BC. No flowers by request. Donations in Emilyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory can be made to a charity of your choice. Tributes and condolences may be left at: www.hendersonsabbotsfordfunerals.com
