Harbour improvements underway BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

The Mission harbour is getting a significant facelift which the local authority believes will draw in more visitors and improve the area’s esthetics. Work is underway along Harbour Avenue as the $900,000-plus project sees the dike level raised, new rip-rap, benches, lighting and ramps installed, and construction of a new Mission Harbour Authority (MHA) building which will likely house an interpretive centre and historical photo displays.

MHA president Alec Finnsson said a “substantial portion” of the work should be completed by June, and tie in well with the Spirit Square. The harbour is a community asset, he said, and the improvements will attract business and tourists to the facility. “One of the most exciting things is that [this project] creates a diversity for the harbour,” Finnsson stated. Because of the decline in commercial fishing, small craft harbours like Mission need to be more than just a place to moor a vessel. And while the commercial fishing industry is

a fraction of what it was in the 1960s, he said it’s still a “viable industry” in Mission, with 24 vessels anchored here during the season. The cash for the work came from a three-way partnership between the District of Mission, the province and the federal government, said Mike Younie, Mission’s environmental manager. Two-thirds of the $830,000 being spent on raising the dike are covered by the other governments, with an additional $100,000 being spent on “top of dike” works, such as ramps, and benches. Younie said Mission’s share was $230,000, taken from general reserves. Parking is being increased too by five spots.

Trio of kayakers rescued BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Three Kamloops kayakers were rescued by emergency responders Monday morning after spending a night on the east side of Norrish Creek. The men were stranded when the creek’s water level changed and they were unable to safely negotiate the waterway. They started their trip around 2:30 p.m. and were expected to be at the bottom by 5 p.m. Friends began driving up and down the gravel road running parallel to Norrish, honking the car horn when the kayakers didn’t reach their destination. When the trio heard the sound, they shone flashlights towards the noise. Police were notified around 9:45 p.m. Mission and Central Valley Search and Rescue teams were called and made a visual of the stranded kayakers around 10:20 p.m., but due to the steep slope, rescuers waited until daylight to attempt to bring the men out, said Mission RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson.

A lack of cellphone coverage and the noise of the creek prevented communication, but it appeared they had a fire and would be safe to spend the night. They were prepared for an emergency situation, added Dickson. The men were in good condition and didn’t require any medical assistance in the morning, she said. All three were

hoisted to safety with the help of the Chilliwack SAR helicopter around 10 a.m. Monday. “Mission RCMP would like to use this example to remind the public who participate in outdoor activities of the importance of packing along the proper gear in the event of unexpected situations,� said Dickson.

RCMP find Break and enters to business grow op on has dropped 31% since 2009 Lapwing Cr. BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

A suspected break and enter report led police to a marijuana grow operation in the 7300 block of Lapwing Crescent last week. Someone noticed the residence’s front door was opened and appeared to be damaged around 7:45 a.m., said Sgt. Miriam Dickson. Police arrived and entered the property to make sure nobody was injured inside. A woman was located upstairs, and she explained she was just renting the upper floor, said Dickson. As police were clearing the house, they noticed a strong marijuana odour coming from the downstairs. Officers returned to the home around 2 p.m. armed with a search warrant and located about 650 marijuana plants on the lower floor. Nobody was home at the time, said Dickson, also noting the woman upstairs was questioned and released.

Crime rates in Mission have declined in some categories but climbed in others over the past year. The 2010 crime stats show a decrease in break and enters for residential (26 per cent) and business (31 per cent) properties and assault (21 per cent), but an increase in theft from vehicle (31 per cent), theft of vehicle (three per cent), property damage (nine per cent) and general thefts (18 per cent). The drops are significant compared to 2009, say police, and although there are areas that have surged, the numbers are still lower than the 2004 highs. Break and enters have decreased because of police efforts to target repeat offenders, said Insp. Pat Walsh. “The crime analyst has been a big part of that ef-

fort by identifying targets, linking offences and focusing our general patrols to the times and places where crime is happening the most.� Last year police also focused on assault cases as it was the lone major crime category to see an increase in 2009. Most of these assaults were domestic in nature and to ensure each call received an effective response and investigation, all officers in the local detachment went through special training, according to Walsh. In addition to offering

the victim support services, “every incident is scrutinized at a senior supervisor level to ensure that everything possible has been done to bring criminal charges where warranted and to safeguard the victim so as to prevent any further offences,� he said. This year Mounties are striving to reduce theft numbers. “These offences continue to be committed by addicts who continually cruise through our residential neighbourhoods looking for anything of value,� said Walsh. “Un-

fortunately, they continue to have some successes in their nocturnal ventures.� In addition to targeting the known addicts committing the crimes and the clearing houses — a place that trades stolen goods for drugs, and distributes them to other individuals or locations — police will also work on educating the public to not leave valuables in their cars. A pair of clearing houses were raided by police two weeks ago. Police will continue using bait vehicles and keeping an eye on known problem areas, Walsh stated.

The 911 caller reported hearing six shots fired in the area. Police attended, but cleared the scene after allegedly just sitting in their car for six minutes. Dudley and McKay were found four days later in the home. McKay had already died as a result of his injuries and Dudley succumbed to her wounds as she was being transported to hospital. The BCCLA has written a letter to the federal Office of the Information Commissioner to support the Surakkas’ complaint, and copied that letter to the head of the RCMP for western Canada, Gary Bass.

Alternative soapbox Two-day telethon will derby sites explored benefit Mission child BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

The district will be exploring alternative sites for the Soapbox Derby races. It currently takes place on Stave Lake Street above 11 Avenue, but organizers predict the races cannot continue there after the commercial development across from Windebank elementary school is filled up and if road conditions don’t improve. “I know staff are

working with the Soapbox Derby Association (SDA) ... but realistically, I think if we don’t help them do something, it will die,” said Coun. Paul Horn, a former association volunteer. Horn also noted the costs of renting hay bales and the manpower to drop them off “is huge” and a burden for the small group. He is asking for information on when Stave Lake Street is scheduled for improvement and wants staff to research

other possible event sites from 2012 and beyond. Horn suggested the Leisure Centre area be explored, which concerned other politicians. “I have concerns about the Leisure Centre because of the capacity of parking,” said Mayor James Atebe, noting the lot is already packed when there are tournaments happening. However, he agreed an improved site is necessary. “It’s a safety issue. I

want us to look at this as necessary infrastructure for the kids.” Sites discussed when the district met with SDA’s Remco Bergman included Cedar Street (north of Dewdney Trunk Road), First Avenue, Grand Street, Hurd Street, Mary Street, McRae Avenue and Mission Raceway Park. The report could take at least a month to produce as it will require a lot of staff time, according chief administrative officer Glen Robertson.

Focus group suggested to discuss buskers BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

The district needs to change how it views street buskers and vendors, says one Mission councillor. More commerce in the area would provide more eyes and ears and help “take back the streets,” said Coun. Paul Horn. Mission’s attitude that these businesses would “obstruct sidewalks is remarkable,” said Horn, who led discussions on forming a focus group to accommodate street vendors and buskers. “I would like to ask staff to frame an attitude to promote this.” A staff report suggested the focus group include members of the Downtown Business Association (DBA) and municipal staff, such as the planning, engineering, RCMP and economic development departments. Horn also wanted to include area residents. The focus group would look at how to provide space for the street vendors or if closing the street for certain times of the year would be practical. The DBA is not opposed to street vendors and buskers, but doesn’t want competitive products or services offered in the vicinity of current businesses, wrote the DBA executive committee in an e-mail to the district. The group also wants to ensure all forms of busking and vending

are appropriate for the area and the DBA have offered to work with the district to establish guidelines and criteria. Coun. Mike Scudder was the only councillor opposed to the motion.

“I don’t want to take such a strong stance on this,” he said. Scudder also rejected the idea of having downtown residents involved in the discussions as there might be

elements staff want to discuss in private. Coun. Jenny Stevens hoped this initiative would be applied throughout the district, if appropriate, and not just First Avenue.

Nine-year-old Chantel Pellerin has dealt with a lot in her short life. Like most girls her age, Chantel loves spending time with her friends, playing with her two brothers and taking her dog, Brandi, for walks. But there are challenges Chantel faces everyday because of several serious health issues. She experienced seizures at birth which were brought on by a blood clot in her brain due to a forceps delivery. As a result of these seizures, she now has cerebral palsy. This left Chantel with limited use of her right side, no muscle control in her mouth and very limited speech. Variety – The Children’s Charity was there to provide Chantel with speech and language therapy. This has helped her strengthen her muscles and learn to develop sounds to form words. The therapy made a big difference in Chantel’s life as she is now better able to communicate with her family and friends and has learned that when she works hard, she can improve. On Feb. 12 and 13, Variety will present the 45th annual Show of Hearts Telethon, which airs live on Global B.C. The telethon features 23 hours of concerts and performances by worldrenowned entertainers as well as moving and inspirational stories about children helped by Variety.

OPINION

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

Harsher penalties The B.C. government has a major selling job to do to get distracted drivers to put away their cellphones and stop fiddling with their GPS devices and sound systems while they’re driving. Slapping people with $167 fines hasn’t seemed to make much of an impression. Since the ban on cellphones and other hand-held devices was instituted last February, 32,000 tickets have been issued, raising $5.2 million, and people are still dying because of distracted driving. In fact, according to the RCMP, distracted driving was a factor in a third of all crashes last year. If people aren’t getting the message that distracted driving is dangerous, will pumping up the penalties make them sit up and take notice? Not necessarily. People still drive without seatbelts even though the law has been around for more than 30 years and the fines are just as hefty. Tougher drunk driving laws have made an impression but how long will it last? Like drunk drivers who think they drive better while inebriated, most drivers think they alone can multi-task while everyone else around them are losers. They fail to understand that the brain simply cannot multi-task and driving while talking or texting is the equivalent of driving drunk. Don’t agree? Try this test: While driving to work, try to figure out a complicated math problem at the same time. You’ll be surprised to see where you end up after you miss a turn in your normal route. The myth of multi-tasking needs to be addressed and police need an ally to get their message across. One idea would be to engage cellphone manufactures, distributors and service providers in a multiyear communication campaign warning about the dangers of distracted driving. Will drivers give up their in-car technology? Probably not, but at least they will know better.

Emergency preparedness has come a ways since ‘62 A

giant earthquake drill last week got me thinking about how emergency preparedness has changed – hopefully, for the better. The drill was timed to coincide with an earthquake 311 years ago, estimated at magnitude 9.0. Organizers from the provincial Emergency Management Office in Surrey were hoping for 450,000 participants. Learning how to prepare for an earthquake is a good thing, particularly in places like B.C.’s Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, where it is a matter of when will the “big one” hits, not if. Lower Mainland residents had a small taste of an earthquake in February, 2001 when a quake that was centred near Olympia, Washington was widely felt here. However, the largest natural disaster in this area in the past 50 years was not an earthquake, but a hurricane.

Hurricane Frieda (sometimes wind speed was 78 miles per spelled Freda, and known hour (125 km/h). south of the border as the In those days, there was Columbus Day Storm) hit little in the way of a formal this area with ferocity on emergency preparedness sysOct. 12, 1962, and tem in place.

that time. New buildings and infrastructure are built and designed with earthquakes in mind. Every city has an emergency preparedness coordinator. There are frequent exercises to test systems. There are plans for emergency communication to let people know what to do. And yet, almost every residence and business is more dependent on computers than ever. What will happen if there is a widespread power outage and a disabling of wireless transmitters? Would there be enough means to communicate? While people are cautioned to have an emergency supply of food, water and other supplies for 72 hours in their homes, would that be enough to tide them over until major repairs were made? As the experience in 1962 shows, being prepared for an emergency is a necessity. Frank Bucholtz is the editor of the Langley Times

YOUR VIEWS District must be more responsible with resources Editor, The Record: Budgeting should start with council representing the goals and objectives of the community and not just their own objectives. Many items in this budget show a lack of transparency. It leaves the citizens uninformed and creates distrust towards the creators involved. As the information is not available in the detailed budget document, I am curious where the revenues collected are put. What, in detail, are the expenses paid for and from what account are they being paid from? In almost every case, project expenses do not equal the amount of revenue created by the project in question. Bylaws that pertain to high financial involvement should be created with more public input and not just council’s. The action taken by the Public Safety Inspection Team (PSIT) and the information on the district’s website clearly demonstrates the team was created to find controlled substance properties and not for public safety. We have an RCMP Crime Prevention Office in place. For any other building inspection issues we have a department for that. This troublesome and costly empire building needs to be stopped. The controlled substance property bylaw should never have been created and must be abolished immediately. I am also asking that no extra police officer or firefighters are hired as these trades are involved in this team. There are many other questionable and high increases in this budget which need to be addressed, such as utilities, planning department and administration. In order to bring our district’s finances under control we must foremost become more responsible and effective with the resources we presently have in place. We all need to do a better job. Othmar Kagi Mission

Gov’t subsidies are real drivers of the economy Editor, The Record: Re: NDP’s problems go deeper (BC Views, Jan. 27) Tom Fletcher informs us that “if it weren’t for private capital, competition and rewards for efficiency and innovation there wouldn’t be much of a developed world to analyze.” Only the Fraser Institute would agree with that statement. In the real world it is mainly the concessions and publicly funded loans and grants that our economy depend on. It is these loans and grants, plus investor capital that business operates on. Corporations such as Alcan, Canfor and Bombardier, to name a few, routinely seek public money to improve their investments in our natural resources. Industry Canada and Western Economic Diversification, not “private money,” is the basis of corporate involvement in our economy. The billions loaned and granted to the business sector may never be returned to the taxpayers, let alone the interest on top of that. Revenue Canada states that a large

number of businesses pay low or no federal taxes. Government subsidies, not private capital are the real promoters of our economy. Brian J. O’Neill Burnaby

HST lowers tax for big business I was amazed to learn from Tom Fletcher that the B.C. New Democratic Party is in deep trouble, mainly because it believes it’s wrong that the fraction of British Columbians who control most of the wealth keep getting richer while the rest of us keep getting poorer. Before Jan. 27 I thought it was the B.C. Liberal Party whose leader has been forced to resign in a shower of accusations of lying to the public and bungling the introduction of the hated HST. I thought it was the B.C. Liberals who were wallowing in the B.C. Rail scandal, the Kash Heed scandal, maintaining Can-

ada’s lowest minimum wage, allowing a high rate of jobs lost through raw log exports, encouraging controversial netcage salmon farming and waffling over proposed increases in oil tanker traffic. But no, it’s the NDP who are the villains. They simply don’t accept the rule of the Gordon Campbells who get together with big business to pile up profits and tell the B.C. public what’s good for them. New Democrats seem to think that the first function of a democratic government is to reflect the needs and wishes of the people, not the financial ambitions of the wealthy and powerful. Clearly the working class must be guided by politicians and corporate CEOs through controls funded by insidious schemes like the HST, which lightens the tax load of big business by putting more of it on the ordinary taxpayer. Otherwise, the vast gap between the haves and the have-nots might start getting smaller, and we’d all be in deep trouble. Tony Eberts New Westminster

RCMP make a difference for family Editor, The Record: I’m so grateful to our Mission RCMP officers for helping my family and I achieve some peace and quiet. I reside on Hurd Street and lived right next door to a drug house that is no longer in operation, thanks to the RCMP.

Thank you so much for making such an amazing difference in our community especially in my home. Now my children don’t have to witness any drama from next door. This means a lot to me. Also, my dogs don’t bark unnecessarily at night and we get to enjoy a peaceful

night’s sleep. I’m sorry for thinking cops don’t do enough. Thanks for making a difference. You guys are amazing. Sharon Rylan Mission

Flu season has been mild so far in B.C. but health authorities warn it may not stay that way. The influenza virus hitting eastern Canada hard may be felt more strongly here in the weeks ahead. “The winter is long and the risk is not yet over,” said Dr. Danuta Skowronski, physician epidemiologist at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control. “It would be wise to learn from the experience in eastern Canada and prepare for that now, because the same could still happen here.” Influenza season typically spans November to April and the peak can happen any time during that period.

those at high risk may be helped with antivirals, which work best if taken at the first sign of symptoms appearing. As a result, authorities advise that those at high risk have a plan in place for early treatment ahead of time. The flu is potentially a serious respiratory illness and comes on suddenly with fever and cough as well as general aches and fatigue. Frequent hand-washing and covering coughs and sneezes is advised to keep the virus from spreading. There’s been little sign in B.C. this winter of the H1N1 flu virus that triggered a mass immunization campaign a year ago.

Pioneer Social launches 2011 Heritage Week Mission’s ninth annual Heritage Week celebrates communications Feb. 2027. The week kicks off with the Pioneer Social at Cedarbrooke Chateau Feb. 20 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. This event is open to all early settlers and First Nations people of the area, and their families. Everyone is welcome to enjoy refreshments, entertainment and meet old friends and acquaintances. All Heritage Week events are free to the public. Mission Museum is hosting a new exhibit, the Evolution of Communications, while the Mission Community Archives is featuring a display on the municipality’s communication heritage. A new exhibit will be launched by Heritage Places on Feb. 21. Local organizations have been invited to participate with the week’s highlights including popular artwork from Mis-

sion’s three secondary schools which will again be displayed in First Avenue store fronts. This year’s theme, Heritage of Communications, is based on Mission’s history of communications, and will be portrayed in their artistic efforts. Other participants include Mission Genealogy Club’s heritage family memorabilia display and open house on Feb. 20 at the Mission Library and the Mission Indian Friendship Centre where culture and traditions will be shared. Events will wrap up with a Heritage Tea at Norma Kenney House at Fraser River Heritage Park. Attendees are encouraged to bring an item related to the theme for a show and tell and to enjoy afternoon tea and scones with homemade jam. For more information contact Valerie at 604820-6635 or Ann at 604826-9333.

Heritage Commission hosts forum Feb. 23 Organizers want to know what you value The Mission Heritage Commission is hosting a community forum later this month to develop criteria for future heritage and development planning. The Feb. 23 event is open to all Mission residents and organizers want to know what things you value most about the community, the historic places you treasure and your future wishes. The forum will be held at the Leisure Centre in room A4 and B starting at 6:30 p.m. The heritage commission was established in January 2007 and is comprised of 12 voting members appointed by municipal council. The group advises council on heritage matters and is working towards implementing a heritage strategic plan, the development of a heritage register and recognizing people whose accomplishments, projects or efforts further conservation.

PROTECTING WILD SALMON STOCKS ISN’T ROCKET SCIENCE. IT’S MARINE BIOLOGY.

WILD SALMON ISN’T INFINITE If everybody in the world ate a wild salmon every time they got a salmon craving two things would happen. Wild salmon would go extinct and there’d be an international dill and lemon shortage. Salmon farming supplements the world’s supply of salmon, feeding millions and taking pressure off of wild salmon stocks. Pressure that, unchecked, would eventually lead to the destruction of wild salmon.

27% WILD SALMON 73% FARMED SALMON

BC SALMON PRODUCTION

SALMON FARMERS PAY IT FORWARD Salmon farmers rehabilitate an area of sea floor that is larger or provides greater value than the amount covered by any salmon farm. These rehabilitation zones offset any potential impact a farm may have and they help improve and protect water quality and ocean ecology. Over time they will also build up BC’s stock of potential salmon habitats—not just for farmed salmon but wild salmon as well.

Fact: 80% of salmon farming supplies and services are purchased locally.

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH SEA LICE? There are a lot of questions surrounding sea lice; one of the most common is ‘What are they?’ Sea lice are a naturally occurring external parasite that live on many species of wild fish including salmon. They’re not harmful to grown Pacific salmon, but young salmon are vulnerable to them. The concern regarding salmon farms is that, even though the salmon that are raised on a farm all enter the water completely free of sea lice, it’s possible for them to carry sea lice that are transferred to them by wild fish. These lice could then in turn be transferred to young wild salmon. To combat this salmon farmers test their fish regularly to ensure that they don’t harbour high numbers of sea lice. In the unlikely event the sea lice count reaches elevated levels a veterinarian can prescribe a medication to be added to the salmon’s food called SLICE. This rids them of sea lice and is used only as a last resort to protect the health of the farmed salmon and as a preemptive measure to protect young wild salmon who may pass near a farm. SLICE is also never present in a fish that is going to market. Any fish who have been medicated must go through a waiting period before they are harvested to ensure the medication has left their systems.

MOST FARMED SALMON ARRIVE AT YOUR MARKET WITHIN 48 HOURS OF BEING HARVESTED

THERE’S MORE TO SALMON FARMING THAN TAKING CARE OF SALMON Salmon farmers are good stewards of the environment. They have to be — without a healthy marine habitat, they wouldn’t be in business. That’s why salmon farming is one of the most strictly regulated agricultural businesses in the province. All BC salmon farmers monitor water quality and must produce regular environmental reports on sea-floor health. These reports are monitored to ensure farm sites, and the entire coast, remain beautiful and productive for years to come. That’s good for the environment and it’s good for business.

FISH FEED CONTENTS

Fact: Every month each salmon farm tests sixty salmon to monitor sea lice numbers.

Parks honour citizens C

edar Valley was first settled by early pioneers looking for fertile farmland and berry fields. More recently, subdivision development has resulted in a high-density area of single-family homes. Thanks to local planning initiatives, developers contribute an amenity fee which provides funds for developing local parks, playgrounds and trails. In October, 2003 a new park at the west end of Bobcat Drive was named Gary MacDonald Park to honour the achievements of Mission’s first Olympic swimmer. MacDonald was born and raised in Mission, started his swimming career with the Mission Marlins at the old Kinsmen outdoor pool on Second Avenue, and went on to win numerous national and international awards. At the 1974 Commonwealth Games in Christchurch, New Zealand, he won a gold medal and two bronze medals in freestyle events. At the 1976 summer Olympics in Mon-

treal, MacDonald was part of the 4x100 metre relay team that won a silver medal. Mission recognized his achievements by naming him a Freeman, the youngest in this award’s history. MacDonald went on to a coaching career, including the Mission Marlins, and assistant coach of the Canadian Dolphins swim Sha teams. He was inducted into the Mission sports hall of fame and currently represents Atlantic Canada on the Canadian Olympics committee. Lightburn Park, at Christie and Phelps Avenues, was dedicated in 2003 to marksman Bill Lightburn. He started shooting as a boy on the Prairies, spent some time in California, and arrived in Mission in the 1940s. Lightburn had one of the longest championship careers in Canadian amateur sports history and won more med-

als than any other B.C. marksman, competing in provincial and Canadian matches on 34 different occasions. In 1971, he won a Queen’s 100 badge at Bisley as one of the top marksmen in the British Commonwealth. Lightburn was a founder of the Mission Rod and Gun Club, and in 1988 was inducted into Mission’s ron Sports Hall of Fame. He passed away in 2000. Not as well known to most local residents is Tom Jones. The park named after him is located off Fennel Street at the end of Mitchell Avenue. Jones started his road to volleyball excellence as a high school player; from 1977 to 1984, he was an important member of the men’s national team. He was instrumental to

Dreaming Up the Ideal Retirement Is Your Job. Helping You Get There Is Ours. Maybe your idea of retirement is having a second career or working part time, volunteering or indulging in your favourite hobbies. Doing the things you want to do is what retirement should be about.

To learn whether your retirement plan matches your idea of retirement, call for a personal retirement review. Martin Dorner

ROAD CLOSURE—DEWDNEY TRUNK ROAD ACROSS STAVE FALLS-BLIND SLOUGH DAM

Quartet helps spread the love on Valentine’s BY MARIO BARTEL Black Press

Trudy Zonneveld has seen people react with glee, bewilderment, shock and even embarrassment to her singing. But she never thought it would help her get out of a speeding ticket. Zonneveld is a member of the Westcoast Harmony Chorus, and every Valentine’s Day for the past 22 or 23 years, about half the group is divided into quartets to deliver musical messages of love and devotion all across Metro Vancouver. The singing telegrams are the group’s major annual fundraiser to help cover the costs of coaching, music and costumes. It was while running late to one of those appointments when Zonneveld’s quartet was pulled over for exceeding the speed limit in a school zone. As the driver was explaining their situation to the officer the

group broke into song. Bemused and delighted, the officer even called over his partner to share the show. The quartet got off with a warning. Over the years the quartets have performed in classrooms, construction sites, a high school gym class, the wrestling room at Simon Fraser University, offices, private homes, hospitals, beside train tracks in North Vancouver, even a wrecking yard. One group delivered a particularly moving Valentine to a patient in palliative care. He could no longer eat, so he couldn’t enjoy chocolates, explains Jackie Baron, and flowers would likely outlast him; a singing love message was the best way his partner could think of showing him her gratitude for all their years together. While every member of the chorus is an accomplished singer, each of

the Valentine’s quartets must audition to ensure their harmonies mesh. “We pride ourselves that when we sing to you, we sound good,” says Zonneveld. Recipients also get a rose, a chocolate treat and a personal message from their beloved. A singing Valentine costs $50. It can also be delivered by phone for $25. The quartets are on the road on Feb. 14 from 7 a.m. to as late as 11:30 p.m., from West Vancouver to Abbotsford. They’re dispatched from a central “war room” that coordinates the bookings to keep the driving as efficient as possible; a quartet can deliver as many as 25-30 Valentines. “It’s so fun and hilarious,” says Zonneveld. “It’s a joy.” To make a booking, right up until Feb. 14, call 604-507-1432 or email Shayna.Steeves@ modspace.com

Valentine’s day scams can be heart breakers Valentine’s Day is a day for romance and expressions of love, but it’s also an opportune time for scam artists to take advantage of those looking for love and steal their hearts — and their money. “Valentine’s is an emo-

tional time for many people,” says Lynda Pasacreta, Better Business Bureau (BBB) president and CEO. “But if you’re not careful, you could fall victim to a Valentine’s Day scam.” For those who are searching for love or are

already in a relationship, the BBB warns people to watch out for these scams: Online dating Millions of Canadians are using online dating sites to look for that perfect match. But

scammers also use these sites, looking for their own match perfect victim. They target singles of any age and in any location, creating fake profiles designed to convince their victim to send them money in the name of love. Others are even

more bold, arranging to meet single women in person before stealing their valuables at the first opportunity. Tip: Don’t fall for a person who claims to be in love with you at first sight. Scammers usually use emotional ties

to increase the chances of getting your money. If your match asks you to pay for the travel expenses, there is a high probability that it is a scam. E-Cards Phishing scams that

target people waiting for notes of love are all too common. One common Valentine’s Day scam comes in the form of an e-mail, which directs the recipient to a fake website that looks like a popular greeting card website, like Hallmark. The site prompts the recipient of the card to download the latest version of Flash Player in order to view the card. Once the user clicks the link, a virus is automatically downloaded and invades their computer, exposing the person and their e-mail contact book to potential identity theft and financial loss. Other phishing scams prompt targets to provide credit card and other personal information in order to read the e-card. Tip: Make sure you only open e-mails, attachments, and links from people you know. Enhance your e-mail filters to block any such threats. Watch out for unsolicited e-mails with subject lines like “Someone just sent you an e-card” or “Send your loved one a Valentine’s Day card today.” Online florists Flowers can say “I love you,” and a florist is just a phone call or click away. But not all florists are created equal. Complaints that allege that either the flowers were not delivered as promised (wrong flowers or arrangements) or not delivered at all. Some consumers claim that the charges to their credit card were not as agreed upon. A number of complaints also expressed concern with a $10 processing fee that was charged after canceling the transaction when the flowers did not arrive on the date promised. Tip: Consumers should make sure to read the terms and conditions before making any online purchase, and check out the company’s BBB rating at www.mbc.bbb. org. Consider shopping locally with a business you know rather than one you found online.

The Mission Chamber of Commerce

New website offers versatility M

ission Chamber Membership represents a cross section of all industries and organizations that operate in the Mission area. Over two-thirds of the 460 members have less than five employees and a third of that group are home-based. As a reflection of the national small business stats, a growing number of members are self-employed women. Our members are entrepreneurs who are willing to take risks, self-motivated and conscious of where they spend their limited investment dollars. How does the chamber meet their needs? Where value can come in the form of benefits, most members will agree that the network for business to business interaction, services that stimulate the local economy, and direct community promotion gives them their return on investment. With that the Mission Chamber of Commerce is proud to be able to meet these needs on the virtual level as well. The new www.missionchamber.bc.ca allows the public to interact with the Mission business community. Check out the site for community events, local sales, employment opportunities and all that members have to offer. It allows users to e-mail members, refer them to friends as well as connect to member’s social networks. With an average of 1,500 views a week, the Mission Chamber site is one of the most visited sites in Mission. Analytics show that

Above: The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce’s new website offers a host of new features that can benefit your business.

most users reside beyond Mission’s borders so opportunities for members can be far reaching. For members the new website offers them control of their information as well as ability to brand, post photos and videos. “For small businesses that struggle to find advertising dollars, this is an exciting way to get your message out,” states Chamber President Helen Secco. “A long time in the making, this site is a powerful tool for our members.” In addition, the site will also allow members to communicate with each other easily, relay their concerns in discussion forums and receive real time analytics on who is looking for them through the site portal. For new business it offers a quick way to launch into the community. Not only will they be instantly on the directory when they join the chamber, but they will also have their information sent out on the chamber’s wellconnected social networks. Go to www.MissionChamber.bc.ca.

Increase minimum wage, says chamber Having put minimum wage on the table during liberal leadership debates, the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce calls on all provincial leadership candidates to present a plan to increase the minimum wage. Plans should include a gradual increase over the next two years with increases beyond 2013 being tied

to CPI. “Business owners need to be able to plan for increases to the minimum wage.” states Helen Secco, Chamber president. “The lack of increase over the last nine years has left wages stagnant compared to inflation. Now with discussion to increase the wage, businesses will need to rethink staffing commitments. Uncertainty on how this will be accomplished is leaving many businesses unsure of their employees’ futures and their ability to hire.” The Mission Chamber surveyed its membership and 78 per cent of respondents wanted an increase to the minimum wage. Interestingly, 46 per cent wanted gradual increases and 27 per cent wanted to see an immediate increase. For over half of respondents, labour costs ranged from 30-40 per cent. Respondents represented a cross section of industry sectors and only eight per cent paid staff minimum wages. “Our members prefer to see certainty from government over the direction of [minimum] wage. They do not want it to be a political flag waved during election seasons,” remarks Secco. The Mission Chamber also would prefer the cessation of the training wage. With only 2.3 per cent of workers in B.C. receiving minimum wage and most moving from it within the first year of employment, it can be understood that the minimum wage is being used by employers as the training wage already. The chamber recognizes any increase to minimum wage will affect the final cost of goods to consumers.

Get off the couch and set a goal for the season L ast week we opened the subject of having an objective to your sportfishing endeavours. An objective is able to

motive, inspire, encourage and stimulate one to fulfilling a goal or purpose. This past week I read of an angler who demonstrates this defi-

nition perfectly, Manitoba’s Gerry Beck. Starting 21 years ago when Manitoba began recording qualifying fish, 81-year-old Beck

has since earned his province’s Master Angler Diamond title. He is one of only two anglers in Manitoba who have qualified for this

it by fly fishing. Do you want to accomplish something out of the ordinary? It doesn’t happen by sitting on the couch,

Senior Games bids solicited With an eye on fitness and fun, bid packages have been sent to 62 municipalities throughout British Columbia for the 2013-14 BC Senior Games. The BC Seniors Games Society is asking mayors and community leaders to step up and be part of this exciting opportunity for athletes 55plus. The multi-sport Games bring as many as 3,500 participants to the host communities and regions. Sports range from ice hockey to cribbage to soccer. The BC Seniors Games Society is a volunteer, non-profit society whose mission statement is to improve the health, lifestyle and image of all 55plus British Columbians. The society

carries out its mandate in two principal ways: • by organizing the BC Seniors Games as an annual opportunity for seniors to participate in physical and social activities; • by proactively portraying a contemporary image of seniors as physically fit and socially engaged. By defining the unique needs of this participant group, the society serves as a bridge between the 55 years and older population and provincial and local sports organizations and recreation departments.

Mission athletes help UFV teams Mission’s Peter Van Brederode logged nine digs Friday as the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades volleyball team lost 3-2 to the College of the Rockies Avalanche. A second game against the same opponents Saturday saw Van Brederode continue his strong play as he notched 12 more digs. However, the Avalanche swept the Cascades 3-2, which placed the UFV squad in sixth place overall with a 4-8 record. Basketball Aieisha Luyken contributed 12 points in UFV’s overtime losing effort against the University of Winnipeg

Wesman, 79-70. The Wesmen came out strong and established an early nine-point lead as the first quarter ended. The Cascades played well in the second quarter and went into the locker room trailing by six points. The third quarter might have been the best UFV has played all year defensively as they held the high scoring Wesmen to six points, while scoring 20 and taking a eight point lead going into the final quarter. Winnipeg would come back to tie the game and force overtime and eventually took the win. This loss drops the Cascades to eighth place in the Canada West division with an 8-11 record.

Mission’s Reid Lofstrom heads to Montreal next month for a national competition. JASON ROESSLE PHOTO

Aiming to keep nat’l title Lofstrom was recently named top junior female competitor by Karate B.C. BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

A Mission karate student is returning to the nationals next month after placing third provincially. Reid Lofstrom, 16, will accompany the Karate B.C. team to Montreal, Que. in March where she hopes to hold on to her national sparring title, and shake off her last performance in January where she lost her first fight in well over a year. The Mission Secondary School black belt, a well-composed and confident competitor, had a momentary lapse in her last bout

where one too many penalties resulted in her losing the match and taking home third place Jan. 23 at BCIT. To prepare for next month, the seasoned fighter is refining some techniques and combinations, but focusing more on bringing up her intensity level. Lofstrom’s skills were recently rewarded after Karate B.C. named her the top junior female for sparring, which is given to those exhibiting exceptional competitive spirit and sportsmanship. The isshin-ryu practitioner has been studying karate for 10 years and has held her shodan (first level

of black belt) for four years. “Karate is something I love because you have to know yourself,” she explained. “It teaches confidence, discipline and selfrespect.” Lofstrom said the ancient martial art allows her to express herself, but on a simpler level, admits with a smile “I just love fighting.” The Grade 11 student trains four days a week with the Burnaby Karate Academy under the direction of Senseis Sandeep Gill and Nicole Poirier, and teaches at the Mission Isshin Ryu school on Saturdays.

Burn Awareness Week Living and working happens February 6-12 near gullies, slopes Hot water scalds are the leading cause of burns to young children and these injuries are preventable. Seventy per cent of Canadian parents do not know this. Because children’s skin is thinner their skin will burn faster than an adult’s and obtain a more severe burn. At 60°C (140°F) it will take less than five seconds to get a third-degree burn. This means that extra care must be taken when drinking hot drinks, especially near children. When running the bath, turn the cold water tap on first, then the hot water. Adjust the temperature from there. To shut off, reverse the order: turn hot off first, then the cold water. Test the bath and wash water before

Teach children to seek assistance from an adult and the correct procedure for cooling a burn injury. Place the burn area into or flush with cool water for 10 to 15 minutes. Never put ice, butter or ointments onto a burn. Does your child know how to call 9-1-1 in an emergency? Children can burn faster and obtain more severe burns in a shorter time due to their thinner skin. The Burn Awareness Program is available for you and your family.

Fire facts at gas stations sources. • Do not smoke, not even inside the vehicle while fueling. • Leave the ignition completely off, including the radio. • Shut off cell phones and pagers. • When filling containers, make sure they are approved for use as a gas container. Fill them on the ground, not in the vehicle and not in the back of a pick up. Did you know that when gasoline is dispensed, it could create a static charge build up, especially when filling nonconductive containers made of plastic? This is why you should always place containers on the ground when filling.

This will eliminate the static safety issues. Just a few moments of forethought the next time you fuel your vehicle is a great investment in your family’s safety.

PAY IT

Most of us, on a regular basis, will take our vehicles to a local gas station to fill up, unaware of all the safety features that have been installed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion. Despite this, accidents or carelessness while fueling vehicles does result in fires. The B.C. Fire Code addresses many of the safety issues, but ultimately customers are responsible for their own safety. Education and understanding are the best weapons in fire prevention. Here are some fire facts to think about the next time you are fueling your vehicle: • The key to fire safety in gas stations is to eliminate all ignition

For any fire safety questions you can contact Mission Fire/ Rescue Service at 604820-3794, or check the District of Mission website at www. mission.ca/fire.

Landslides have occurred within the District of Mission and have resulted in considerable loss of property and impacts to public infrastructure and usually occur as a result of heavy rains or snowmelt. Although not always the case, signs of instability usually show up in advance of slope stability problems occurring. Property owners should monitor their property for signs of instability before, during and after heavy rains. These signs can include: • Cracks in the foundation walls or concrete patios • Leaning deck posts or excessively sloping decks • Slumps or slides in the stream banks • Erosion and soil exposure on the slopes • Fence posts or trees that are leaning downslope or upslope • Cracks or soft spots in the ground near the top of and on the slope • Trees with a strongly curved (“J”) shape at their base • Outbreaks of springs where there were none before • Undercutting of streambanks by creeks at the base of gullies • Presence of water loving plants on slopes – skunk cabbage, horse tail, devil’s club, etc • Old wood retaining walls which have deteriorated due to age • Other retaining walls which exhibit signs of movement Property owners can take several

steps to reduce the likelihood of slope stability problems affecting their property including, but not limited to: • Hire a geotechnical engineer to complete regular stability assessments of your property and implement any recommendations • Ensure water from downspouts, driveways, lawns, decks etc. is directed away from steep slopes or conveyed to the base of the slopes in solid walled pipe • Ensure that retaining walls, swimming pools, ponds etc. on or above steep slopes are designed by an engineer • Ensure that any fill materials to be placed to develop yards are designed by a geotechnical engineer and placed under his or her supervision • Maintain appropriate setbacks from the top of steep slopes as directed by the geotechnical engineer • Have a geotechnical engineer assess the steep slopes for appropriate vegetation cover and adequate slope stability measures • Removal or topping of trees on the slope should only be undertaken with approval by a qualified professional arborist in consultation with a geotechnical engineer Geotechnical engineering firms can be found in the yellow pages. District engineering staff can also answer any questions. Please contact Mike at 604-820-3798 or e-mail :myounie@mission.ca.

Local art students define communications heritage All three high schools participating in Heritage Week, Feb. 20-27 BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Mission high school students have created artwork for this year’s Heritage Week based on the theme heritage of communications. It’s the first time all three are participating, said Ann Mohs, Heritage Week planning committee co-chair. This is the third year Heritage Park secondary is doing work for the historical society, said art teacher Kathy Baker. Students found ideas from photos at the archives and the Internet to create masterpieces with intense and simple colour schemes. There are 25 pieces being submitted, from dial phones to Deroche’s first post office, students used their imaginations and enjoyed creating the art, said Baker. It took Clara Banken, a Grade 11 exchange student from Germany almost three weeks to paint an old car in front of a building. “I’ve never done such a big piece before,” she said. Jaimi Wainwright took a different ap-

proach and created her large piece with ink and crayon. There will be nine students’ work on display from Mission secondary students. They worked on the project for two weeks and had fun reviewing old photographs, researching topics on the Internet and comparing old telephones to the sleek modern one, said teacher Marsha Lemon. The series of drawings are done in a variety of mediums from pencil and pencil crayons to conte and charcoal. “My favourite pieces show not only the communication device ... but it also includes a person using the device,” said Lemon. “This helps date the piece through the hairstyles and clothing.” Grade 11 and 12 art students were also busy at Hatzic secondary producing posters. The Grade 11 and 12 students used digital images and computer technology for the project. “Each student was asked to include the word ‘communicate’ somewhere in their poster,” said HSS teacher Wendy Lewington. “The students have been working on the project for ... three weeks,” she added.

“They were eager to begin the project because it involved photo editing programs such as Photoshop, and most students are very interested in learning about how to use these types of programs.” HSS will be contributing between 15 and 20 posters for the display. One of the unique pieces was created by Johannes Kahloefer, an international student visiting from Germany. Kahloefer’s poster is a collage of images featuring modern technology juxtaposed with historical images that have been scanned from a collection at the Mission Community Archives. These images are edited so that they are multi-coloured and multi-layered. “The combination of images and the technology used to create the poster speaks to the enormous and rapid changes that have taken place in the field of communication and the implications this has for our community and for society at large,” noted Lewington. • Works from all three high schools will be on display during Heritage Week (Feb. 20 - Feb. 27) in downtown businesses.

The history of Valentine’s Day is clouded in myth and legend. There are at least three people named Valentine who are mentioned in early church documents, quite interestingly, all of whom are thought to have been martyred. One was a priest who supposedly married people despite the ban on marriage by the Emperor Claudius. (This ban on marriage was in effect because Claudius believed that single men made better soldiers.) In one of those legends about St. Valentine, we are told that Valentine refused to renounce Christ before Emperor Claudius in the year 280 AD and was thus, sentenced to death. However, before being executed, St. Valentine supposedly restored the sight and hearing of the jailer’s daughter. And, some accounts even tell of St. Valentine sending a letter to the jailer’s daughter signed, “from your Valentine,” and this story is sometimes used to explain the custom of sending love-inspired cards on this day. Whatever the truth about St. Valentine, there is little doubt that love triumphs over all. Love of God, gave countless martyrs the faith to accept their deaths with equanimity. Love also gives people who are wronged, the power to forgive their oppressors. And love inspires all of us to simply be better people. One has to wonder if Emperor Claudius didn’t actually have it backwards. Perhaps instead of banning marriage, he should have required it, because those who are fighting for someone or something they truly love, fight much harder than those who are only doing it for money or honor.

Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, it would be utterly scorned. R.S.V. Song of Solomon 8:7

Loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on Feb. 5th in Mission, BC. She was predeceased by her husband Henry of 52 years and her nine siblings. She will be greatly missed by her daughter Gail (Ken), son Gary (Kelly), grandchildren, Robyn (Michael), Edie (Clint), Darci, (Tom) Dustin and Kurtis and her great-grandchildren, Ashley, Steven, Hailey, Emma, Luella and Lincoln, along with many loving family members and friends. At 90 years of age, Mom has had an amazing life, she was born in Holfast, Saskatchewan in 1920, the youngest of 10. She spent 15 years in a TB Sanatorium, where she learned her nursing skills and began her long career of caring for others. She met Henry while still in the hospital and soon they were married and moved to Lipton, Sask. They had Gail in 1950, moved to Vancouver and had their son Gary in 1952. They purchased a farm in Dewdney in 1963 and stayed in Mission, near their children and grandchildren the rest of their lives. She was the sweetest, cookie making, hugging, church loving, dedicated mother and grandma anyone could ever wish for. Our deep thanks to Dr. Johnson and the staff of The Worthington Pavilion and Mission Memorial Hospital for their care and understanding. Funeral Mass will be at Mission’s St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on Saturday Feb. 12th, at 10:30am. In lieu of owers, donations in her memory to the B.C. & Yukon Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.

Vitaline was born in Ste. Adolphe, Manitoba and raised in St. Boniface. She graduated from teachers training college and taught for many years, mostly in Trail, BC. Vitaline married Walter Herbert Craig in 1954. The couple enjoyed a devoted, loving relationship for 56 years. They took pleasure in their lakeside property in the Kootenays for many years, boating, ďŹ shing, and visiting with friends across Canada before retiring and moving to Abbotsford. Residents of Garden Park Tower in Abbotsford for more than 20 years, they enjoyed cruises that took them to most areas of the world, even an around the world cruise. Vitaline and Walter were full of stories of their various trips and kept in touch with old friends and the new friends they made. She had a reputation for her sewing and wonderful cooking. Vitaline was hospitalized in extended care of the Menno Hospital in Abbotsford soon after Walter in 2009. They were fortunate that they were able to share a room and her only complaint about the loving care of Menno Hospital staff was that the couple couldn’t share a bed! Walter passed away on February 24, 2010. Vitaline will be remembered in prayers at the 9 AM Mass on Feb. 26 at the St. Ann’s Catholic Church, 33333 Mayfair Avenue, Abbotsford, BC. In lieu of owers and in recognition of the care received, Vitaline would have preferred that there be donations to the Menno Place Hospital, Abbotsford, BC.

of the Order of St. Clare died peacefully in her monastery in Mission, B.C., on January 30th, 2011 at the age of 82. Born in Calgary, AB, on November 13, 1928, she was the third youngest of ten children of Alexander Nelson McDonald from Killarney, Ontario, and Beatrice Traynor, of Owen Sound, ON. She attended Catholic schools and then became a primary grade teacher in the Calgary Catholic School District. Through the encouragement of Fr. Timothy Gilker, OFM, she entered the Poor Clares, then residing in their ďŹ rst home at 1049, 14th Avenue, New Westminster, B.C. She brought her gifts of peace and prayer to all she did throughout her religious life. A true lover and disciple of St. Clare, she inculcated that love to her sisters as novice directress and then as abbess for two double terms. Sr Mary Clare was chosen superior for our foundation in Alexandria, Ontario, in 1994 and was a member of the community there until we closed the house in 2007. Her last years back in her home monastery in Mission were where she patiently bore a lung disease and the loss of her memory through Alzheimer’s disease. Foyer Maillard was her home for two months, where she was lovingly looked after. Her quiet sense of humour was with her to the end. Her faithful prayer will surely continue from her merited place in heaven. Mass of Christian Burial was offered at the church of the Poor Clares, Mission, B.C., on February 3rd at 1:00 p.m. Sister Mary Clare was buried with the Poor Clares in Hatzic Cemetery.
