RCMP maps show grow ops in every corner of Mission BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

M

arijuana grow ops can pop up just about anywhere in any community. No neighbourhood is immune, and Mission is no exception. Police investigate and take down these illegal grow operations from one end of town to another, and are beginning to map the progress. These maps are created by the detachment’s crime analyst and presented as information to the public. They can be viewed on the Mission RCMP website at www.mission.rcmp.ca. The maps also remind residents grow ops can happen in any neighbourhood, even yours, said Cpl. Sharon Siluch.

They only show homes that have been busted, and provide a comparison from year to year. Last year police took down 50 marijuana grows operations and seized 41,103 plants and 105,743 grams of dried marijuana bud worth about $1,057,430. In 2008, 88 grow ops were busted, and there were 65 in 2007. So far this year, police have been busy with three. The RCMP street crime unit, with one officer dedicated to grow ops, is mainly responsible for investigating and taking down these illegal operations. The team can be extremely busy, depending on the number of reports and priorities.

Police say a lot of tips come in from residents who suspect there is a grow op in their neighbourhood, and through Crime Stoppers, an anonymous tip line for police. Not all grow ops are gang-related, but most of them are affiliated with criminal activity, according to police. Regular people could grow the crop, but they still have to find someone to buy it, Siluch explained. She added nobody will admit organized crime is funding their operation. “There are ones that are legal, and regulated through Health Canada, but we are aware of them,” said Siluch. The regulated grows are for medicinal pur-

Maps created by the RCMP show marijuana grow operations are found all across Mission.

Many dangers associated with marijuana grow ops From MARIJUANA page 1 poses and there is a limit to how many plants they can have. But even these legalized ones are not immune to violence associated with illegal operations. Last week, three to five masked individuals barged into a home in the 9400 block of Barret Street and pepper sprayed the occupants in a grow rip, said Siluch. The occupants managed to escape from the home and called police when they thought they were safe to do so. When police arrived, the suspects had already fled. Marijuana was growing at the home legally, said Siluch, but the invaders, who somehow heard about the grow, ripped it off because they feared it would be competition for them. Police don’t know if the suspects were male or female, and the incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477. OTHER DANGERS Violence is a risk for anyone growing marijuana. “Grow ops are targets for grow rips,” said Siluch. There can be booby traps set up around the property to attack anyone trying to rip off the plants, making it dangerous for police who do the busts too.

Marijuana produced in an illegal indoor grow operation is quite different than a plant grown naturally outdoors. In an indoor environment, growers can create the ideal setting, forcing the plant to mature faster, which is why the stalk of an indoor crop is much thinner, according to police who have found and taken down both types of production. Indoor plants are also fed daily with nutrients and other chemicals that will help the plant bulk up faster. It’s kind of like when a person takes steroids to bulk up, explain police. “These chemicals are dangerous; there’s nothing natural about B.C. bud.” Growers also manipulate the amount of light the plants receive. Marijuana that is available today also has a higher THC level than it

Caution signs to watch for in your neighbourhood BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Police get ready to enter and search a home suspected of housing a grow op in Mission in 2007. RECORD FILE PHOTO

Police are also seeing more firearms and other weapons, such as bear spray and bats, in homes to protect the crop, said Siluch. Grow rips aren’t always reported to police, but sometimes officers are aware of them because there’s a report of a break and enter or someone is at the hospital with suspicious injuries, such as a gunshot wound, or they are beaten up badly, and the medical staff at the hospital call police. But there are other dangers as well. There are fire risks, health risks and almost always damage to the home. Because marijuana plants require special lights which use a lot of electricity, growers usually find a way to bypass the hydro line to the house. They rewire the home and

oftentimes the work isn’t clean or proper. As a result, the circuit boards get overloaded, and a fire could break out. When firefighters are called in to put out a fire, police are also notified if there is a grow op on the property. If people are living in the same house where there is a marijuana grow op, their health can be compromised, say police. The chemicals used to feed the plants are very toxic, Siluch explained. The house is usually very moist too, creating ideal conditions for mildew, fungus and black mould. Breathing this stuff in isn’t good for you, said Siluch, noting that’s why sometimes officers working to dismantle a grow op will wear white bio hazard suits.

did 30 or 40 years ago. There are a number of factors for this, said Insp. Pat Walsh, who worked in the RCMP drug section for more than two years before coming to Mission. The strains of cannabis are different, but growers have also improved on their methods. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main active ingredient in marijuana. High THC is only found in the female plants, explained Walsh. Male plants are never in the same room with a crop because the male will pollinate the female, and produce seed instead of the valuable flower. When the female plant is mature, it will flower in an attempt to attract male pollen. And because there isn’t any pollen in the room, the plant will continue to flower until it is clipped. An illegal indoor crop can be harvest in two or three months, but it takes six months in a natural, outdoor environment.

How can you tell if there’s a grow op in your neighbourhood? Sometimes there are people living in the house and the marijuana is growing downstairs, but other times there is nobody around the property and the yard is unkept. But there are commonalities in both cases. There could be a large amount of pots and soil scattered around the house, said Cpl. Sharon Siluch. “Look for dark coverings over windows, and listen for humming sounds, which could be fans or generators.” If there is a marijuana grow op nearby, there will also be a distinct smell in the air. Marijuana being smoked has a burning smell, but marijuana being grown will have more

of a vegetative smell. Some people describe it like smelling a skunk, or skunk cabbage; it’s moist and sticky. Other signs a house could be growing marijuana include: • Residents of the house keep to themselves • Rooms in the house and/or outbuildings seem to be illuminated • There is unusual or modified wiring on the exterior of the house • There were hoses running from the exterior of the house • A variety of extra security measures have been taken to protect the house If you suspect there is a grow op or a drug house in your neighbourhood, document the types of vehicles and license plates coming and going from the suspected house, said Siluch. You don’t have to give your name if you

are reporting it to the police, but you can help by collecting some data. “We’re not asking you to interact with anyone,” explained the corporal. There is a package of forms available from the RCMP that will help you collect some of the information. Once police have a starting point, they will do surveillance of the area and continue to gather information. According to Siluch, most people don’t mind providing some documentation because they don’t want to live with this kind of business in their neighbourhood. To get more information, or to report a suspected marijuana grow operation in your neighbourhood, call Mission RCMP at 604826-7161 or if you want to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

District’s PSIT focusses on dangerously high hydro consumption In addition to the regular work police do, the district’s Public Safety Inspection Team (PSIT) also comes across illegal residential grow operations. Because grow ops require a lot of power, excessive hydro consumption can be an indicator that one is present in a home. About four years ago the BC government amended the Safety Standards Act to allow local governments to obtain electrical consump-

tion information from BC Hydro. The information is used to deal with any electrical safety risk, as well as other risks found through the inspection process. The PSIT in Mission consists of a fire inspector, building inspector and electrician, supported by two office staff. RCMP are also present when the team visits a home, but they are not allowed on the property. Police are only there to keep the peace if necessary.

Once the hydro consumption data has been obtained, properties with potential electrical safety concerns are identified. Research of municipal and provincial records is conducted to ascertain any legitimate explanation for the high hydro use. If no information is found to account for the high consumption, the registered owner and tenant, where applicable, are contacted and a public safety inspection is scheduled. During the inspection, any electrical system

deficiencies are noted as well as any contravention of the Building Code, Fire Services Act or other applicable legislation related to public safety. If the inspectors determine a property was used as to produce a controlled substance, inspection fees will be charged. Inspectors can also place a “do not occupy” order on the property, prohibiting anyone from residing in the dwelling. Source: District of Mission

The announcement came Wednesday, the same day as a B.C. Supreme Court judge set a trial date of May 3 for the ministerial assistants charged with fraud, breach of trust and accepting a benefit in connection with bidding on the railway.

has been going to Albert McMahon for four years, ‘sorry, you have to go to Silverdale now.’” However, it was noted that there would be implications for cross-boundaries transfers in the future.

“We recognize that there are employment contracts in place and we would have to honour those,” Bond said. The board of directors is also resigning effective March 31, and Bond said she does not expect them to be paid severance. Other employees are being transferred to government, to continue to operate the Roberts Bank spur line and deal with property holdings and other ongoing work. Bond said she expected that winding up the Crown corporation would entail significant costs, but the shift to ministry operation is expected to result in savings of up to $5 million a year, about half the current operating costs. The past two years have been consumed with pre-trail arguments, mostly about the disclosure of thousands of documents and e-mails related to the sale. This week the three accused chose to be tried by judge and jury.

Heritage awards recognize contributors Awards were given out for education and promotion and special achievement BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Five Community Heritage Awards were handed out Monday night inside council chambers at city hall. The awards, now in their third year, recognizes efforts made by individuals and groups to protect, enhance and/ or restore heritage resources. Jim Hinds, alternate chair of the commission, introduced the award winners, while chair Janis Shultz and acting mayor Danny Plecas made the presentations and congratulated the winners. There are three categories for the awards: Conservation of the Built Environment, Streetscapes and Landscape; Education and Promotion of

Heritage; and Special Heritage Achievement. Awards were presented in two categories. Lifetime Learning Centre Society and Xa:ytem Long House Interpretive Centre received an award for Education and Promotion of Heritage. “The criteria for this award is for individuals or groups advocating heritage education, awareness and conservation in Mission,” said Hinds. Lifetime Learning was recognized for its recording of oral histories. There are over 125 oral histories in Mission. Xa:ytem was recognized for its continued work on educating the public on Sto:lo history and culture. Special Heritage Achievement Awards

Recipients of the third annual Community Heritage Awards were honoured at municipal hall Monday evening. CAROL AUN PHOTO

were given to Luv 2 Quilt, authors of Mission’s Living Memorials, and in honour of Norma Kenney. Recipients earned this award based on their contribution to conserving, recording and understanding Mission’s heritage. “Work can include, but are not limited to, archival preservation, art work, written material, publications, heritage studies, historical research and documenta-

tions, Hinds explained. Luv 2 Quilt was honoured for the Heritage Centennial Quilt that was produced, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the museum building. The quilt also features many local historical buildings and is on display now at the library. Catherine Marcellus, Betty Robertson and Betty were honoured for their work in creating the book Mission’s Living Memorials, along

with Betty Dandy, who passed away in 2005. The trio spent five years researching the book, documenting the first 100 years of health care in Mission. They also established a “founders corner” at the hospital. The work of Norma Kenney, who died in 1990, still isn’t forgotten today. “...

FHA mops up red ink – for now Cuts balance budget, but wait times to grow BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

The Fraser Health Authority will end its financial year in April with a balanced budget but it’s far from clear whether more cuts will be required in the months ahead. Victoria had previously indicated the authority would get a 5.8 per cent budget increase for 2010. But officials say that depends on how much money the provincial government earmarks for health care when it hands down its new budget after the Olympics are over. Fraser averted what threatened to be a $160-million deficit for 2009-10 by postponing surgeries, cutting grants and programs and restructuring its operations. A variety of psychiatric, detox and residential care beds were closed, and acute care beds occupied by elderly long-term care patients were redesignated so lower paid nurses could be used. Delayed elective sur-

geries, some as a result of the Olympics, will likely result in longer wait times for some procedures, said Fraser Health CEO Dr. Nigel Murray. But many of the spending reductions and service changes should yield ongoing savings, he said, not just a one-year gain in cash flow. Steady population growth and demand for health services is putting continued pressure on

Fraser, which struggles to keep pace with demand despite significant funding increases. Emergency room visits to area hospitals are running at a rate 11.8 per cent higher than a year ago. The number of admitted patients is up nearly nine per cent, births are up three per cent and neonatal intensive care units are dealing with 10 per cent more high-risk newborns. “There is unprecedented demand for services,” Murray. “We are growing at about double the provincial average, about two per cent per annum.”

He said staff overtime has been cut 25 per cent, saving about $8 million, and administration costs have been reduced to less than 10 per cent of the total budget – in part by terminating several vicepresidents and other senior administrators. He said it’s too early in Fraser’s budget process to tell how much of an increase from Fraser’s current $2.48 billion budget is needed for 2010-11 to maintain service at the new levels. Despite the restraint, more hospital space is being built.

Former LLangley l Ad Advance Publisher Mourned

Marilyn Boswyk, a well-known and loved figure in the Lower Mainland community newspaper circle, passed away Wednesday evening, February 3, 2010. Close friends had found Marilyn unconscious in her Mission home Saturday, January 23, 2010. She was rushed to Mission Hospital, and eventually transferred to Abbotsford hospital, where it was determined she had more than one stroke. Further complications necessitated her move to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, surrounded by family and friends, where she suffered more strokes and eventually passed away. Marilyn was well respected and renowned for her kindness to the community, volunteering and donating to various charities. Her love of horses was huge; she rode frequently at her Aldergrove farm, and kept the place in superb condition. Born in Indonesia in 1937, Marilyn was only 4 years old when WWII came along. After the Japanese invasion of the Indonesian islands, Marilyn and her family were sent to a concentration camp and where held there for the entire duration of the war before they were released in 1945. Marilyn and her family then moved to Holland, where she met her future husband, Fenmo Boswyk. Shortly after their marriage, they moved to Canada, and lived in Gold River and Campbell River for a small duration where they had daughter Loraine and late son Dirk before moving to Burnaby and ultimately settling in Mission. By 1972, Marilyn became a partner in Ready Realty and by 1978 had bought out the company, becoming its sole owner. She later became a founding partner in the highly successful Real Estate Weekly before also stepping into a struggling Langley Advance Newspaper in September of 1994. She became publisher and took over, leaving it stronger than ever by the time of her retirement in September of 2003. Marilyn suffered a number of losses, including the tragic death of her son, Dirk and his fiancee, who were killed in an earthquake in Mexico on Thanksgiving Day of 1995. Later, her husband, Fenmo Boswyk, died in 2003 of Alzheimers. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Loraine and Loren Tobin and grandchildren Dustin and Shaila of Langley, her close nephew, Roderick Tollenaar in Vancouver, her siblings Wilhelmina and Dirk F Tollenaar in the Netherlands, Huib Tollenaar in Chile, and Matthijs Tollenaar in the USA. A service to celebrate Marilyn’s life will be held at Northside Community Church, 33507 Dewdney Trunk Rd., Mission on February 27, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mission Foundation’s Dirk Boswyk Memorial Fund, or to the Mission Foundation’s Fenmo Boswyk Music Fund.

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy

H

e’s being heralded as the “Mogul of moguls” after his exhilarating win in freestyle skiing on Cypress Mountain Sunday night – and for more reasons than turning out the fastest run of the men’s moguls competition. Alexandre Bilodeau, 22, became an instant national hero after capturing the first Olympic gold medal to be won on Canadian soil. But his rush to the top of the popularity podium has as much to do with his personality as his performance. Take for example his main opponent: B.C.-born Dale Begg-Smith – a.k.a. the “Spam Man” – who made millions as an Internet entrepreneur after quitting Canada’s ski program when coaches suggested he was spending too much time on business and not enough in the back country. He moved to Australia and subsequently became rich and sullen. He stood stonily on the podium during the national anthem when he won gold in Turin, Italy four years ago, and his emotionless reaction this week to losing to a former countryman wasn’t exactly a model of gracious ex-pat protocol. By contrast, Bilodeau has been a breath of fresh winter air, with his underdog-does-good grin, his shout-out to his physically disabled brother, and his refusal to take sole responsibility for his success, citing the support of parents and coaches as key to his achievement. In fact, it is a trifecta of sporting triumph. Bilodeau has displayed humility, emphasized the love of family, and – in a delicious twist of irony sure to have the separatists flinching under the fleur-de-lis – will go down in history as the guy from Quebec who united the country, making millions of people proud to be Canadian. Mogul of moguls, indeed. Let the endorsement deals begin. The Surrey Leader

Fewer losers at these Olympics T he 2010 Olympics really got started for me on the night before Halloween, when a howling mob chose the street in front of my Victoria condo to provoke the police and push the torch run off course. Little old ladies and kids who had stood in the rain for an hour to glimpse the torch were instead treated to professional protesters leading campus radicals smeared with zombie makeup, screaming obscenities and chanting nonsense. Veterans in dress uniforms got similar treatment at Vancouver’s Victory Square Friday morning, as “protesters” spread debris and managed to divert the torch route away from them. Signs demanded “Homes Not Games” in the area where millions of tax To dollars have been poured into transition housing and shelters. Mohawk “warrior” flags were waved, a further insult to the real warriors at the cenotaph who were denied their dignified moment of national pride. Masked men on Commercial Drive later managed a similar triumph, dragging barbed wire and concrete blocks onto the street. They then prevented children from getting a picture with a torch bearer after being deprived of their moment. Mercifully, the TV coverage didn’t

give in to its traditional craving for conflict, passing quickly over this pimple on the smiling face of the 2010 Games. By then the spontaneous turnout for the nation-wide torch run had convinced them that everyone is against the Olympics, except the people. As with other orchestrated protests against salmon farms or private power development, it’s useful to drill down to see who is promoting this effort. One self-proclaimed organizer calls itself the 2010 Welcoming Committee. It’s an eclectic group, to be sure. Joining the increasingly radical Council of Canadians are such giants of social justice as the Workers Communist Party of Iran, the VANDU Womyn’s Group, West End Wild Animal Alliance, Industrial Workers of the World, m GatewaySucks.org and the Work Less Party. So what’s the message? The Council of Canadians is also busy with anti-mining protests that exploit divisions in B.C. aboriginal communities, and one chaotic constant in this anti-Olympic exercise has been its claims about “stolen land.” That’s crude shorthand for a serious and complicated historical grievance, one that’s been set back by this crowd just as surely as these Olympics have fostered new co-operation with B.C.’s aboriginal people. Another claim is that unspecified

B.C. Views

Fletcher

Olympic sponsors are somehow “intimate” with oil sands extraction. Sharp research, guys. The criminal agitators massed at B.C. Place for the opening ceremonies, their useful idiots behind them, for one more shot at provoking a police response. They spat on the cops, they sprayed vinegar in their eyes, but no dice. It seems fitting that they slunk away around the time k.d. lang sang “Hallelujah.” I’m in Vancouver this week to report on the goings-on downtown while our sports specialists follow the fortunes of athletes from around B.C. I’ve had no response from the Pivot Legal Society to my question about their latest scheme, giving away red tents to encourage people to camp on city sidewalks. I asked them how they plan to determine that their staged squatters are actually homeless. Pivot’s overt contribution to the Victoria protest was to provide “legal observers,” including their long-time leader David Eby. They walk with the mob wearing yellow vests and smug expressions, oddly oblivious to the protesters’ antics while searching for any hint of excessive police response, so they can flood the complaints process and courts. With decreasing compliance from the media, these lawyers for losers pretend they are bravely helping the banana republic of Canada struggle to emerge from a police state. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Park’s restrooms finally opening

Own the Podium about passion Editor, The Record: Own the Podium, the plan to provide $110 million of support to our best prospective winter Olympians, should be seen as a long term investment in our Canadian talent. I disagree with the many observers who believe success can only be measured by the number of medals Canada wins. The true investment is in passion.

It is passion that drives us through life. Some opponents see this as an unfair advantage. It actually levels the playing field, bringing Canada closer to what countries like the United States have done for decades to invest in their athletes. It never surprises me – the level of criticism by some Canadians and foreigners. They complain when Canada

doesn’t do enough. They complain when Canada does too much. We either see this an investment in the future or we can return to those days of athletes holding down jobs to support their athletic passions. I don’t know about you, but I think it is really great to hear our national anthem at a medal ceremony. Our lives are shaped by what inspires us, not only personally, but

socially, as it sets standards that bring value-added which enriches this human experience. I wonder how many of us have actually reflected on our lives and figure out why we are passionate about certain aspects. As a simple question: What drives you? William Perry Victoria

Editor, The Record: An open letter to Kerry Bysouth, manager of parks and facilities. As a neighbour of Centennial Park, I have noticed the construction of the washrooms is slightly ahead of schedule. I notice that they are wheelchair accessible, even though they are in the middle of a jogging track, and that they have glowin-the-dark signs even though they will be locked at night. The signs are quite visible, since the units do not face the corner like you said they would. No chance of moving them now, I guess. As work progresses I have a few questions. When is opening day? I noticed a parent and child hoping to use one the other day. And speaking of opening day, will we have balloons and marching bands? Will any other politicians want to make a speech and partake in the photo op other than the mayor? Will there be enough parking? Is it to be a ribbon cutting ceremony or a christening? Some citizens of Mission may not realize the significance of this event. This is the first new set of permanent washrooms in Centennial Park in over a half century. For the neighbours this will mean no more desperate parents knocking on our doors with a child that can’t wait until they get home to use the washroom. No more “portable facilities” which begs the question – will we get a memorial plaque telling us how many and what it cost us for all those “portable facilities” that gave their lives over the last 20 or so years? Was it worth waiting all this time to get one-third of the funding? So we anxiously await opening day and hope it isn’t too far off. Julie Lloyd Mission

Pesticides not only a danger to humans Editor, The Record: Re: Landscaper questions validity of ban on pesticides, Feb. 11, by Don Warkentin Okay Mr. Warkentin. So let’s put our cards on the table. In your hand you have your own personal experience of “beautifying neighbourhoods” using pesticides that you’ve spent years in close contact with and, (lucky you!) have suffered no ill effects. My sympathies to you on the loss of your family members to cancer not caused by pesticides. And congratulations to you on your survival after years of exposure. Others have not been so lucky. Which brings us to the playing hand of those opposed to the pesticides (and let’s just throw in bombs and big oil for the heck of it) that you advocate the use of. We have bats, who were once abundant and served us well in managing mosquito populations,

Dangerous breakdown on bridge Editor, The Record: I ran out of gas on the north side of the Mission Bridge. Big mistake. I put my trouble lights on, and eight pylons for 100 feet. Big trucks stomped on the brakes and there was so much smoke I could not see, and they narrowly missed my van. Nobody else slowed down. Rush rush rush. Two women ran over my pylons so I had to pull them from under their car. I phoned BCAA. Two trucks arrived in five minutes, or there’s a good chance I wouldn’t be here today. The tow truck driver said this bridge is a suicide mission when people break down. Thanks Wade, for saving my day. Jerry Tremblay Mission

we have riparian areas, (do you really think that frogs, salamanders, salmon and more should die for your “beautiful yards”? We have all critters that are unfortunate enough to wander on your “beautiful” pesticide laden lawns. And let’s not forget the soil which is also alive (or was before you sprayed it). Or do you think that it is only human life that matters? Well, this may come as a bit of a surprise to you, but humans don’t exist without a healthy land base, and humans have been doing a damn good job of destroying the land base that we depend on for survival. Genocide of the natural world is hardly a solution to human health. You are absolutely right about the Copenhagen Climate Conference. A fine sham it was. A real shining example of your kind of mentality on a

Seniors should have strong voice Editor, The Record: Mission needs a leadership renaissance that will awaken the spirit of citizen involvement in public issues. This must transcend normal political initiatives that show little interest in anything beyond tightly controlled public input as a way of managing perception and containing dissent. Instead, we need to bring out demands for effective citizen action from all walks of life. I am focusing upon the seniors of Mission and the neglect experienced from politicians to date, particularly as it applies to there being no dedicated seniors activity centre. Now that seniors are on council’s radar and vast publicity has embarrassed members of council for their unpop-

Interesting that you chose to point your finger at the environmentalists and not the governments who cowed to the economic greed of irresponsible corporations who don’t want the inconvenience of cleaning up their act. Your comments bring to mind images of Charlton Heston holding a rifle above his head, saying “From my cold dead hands!” after a tragic school shooting; or the many who are fond of saying “It is my God-given right to water my lawn!” in spite of global water shortage; or “It is my God given right to drive an SUV!” in spite of wars being waged over oil and the earth being decimated by it’s extraction.

strong political force (seniors in Mission 50-plus years of age account for 10,000 of the 22,000 eligible voters), apathy is so entrenched and the selfserving politician is grateful.

Seniors are now poised to advance in their attainment of a desperately needed seniors activity centre, but the major obstacle is to overcome apathy, to recognize objectives and take positive action. On March 4 at the Mission Seniors Centre Association AGM, 10 a.m. at the Seniors Activity Centre (Play Station) have the courage to elect a productive, progressive and proactive board of directors. Seniors must rally together as one strong voice for seniors’ needs and not be swayed by naysayers or the idea we should have patience, and continue waiting for little tid-bits handed to seniors by insensitive politicians.

Health Care Auxiliary takes on new programs BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

The Mission Health Care Auxiliary Society has taken on another program to help make ambulatory day care experiences a little more friendly. The program runs every Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

It has only been running for a couple of weeks, and clients are already noticing a difference, said Alyce Campbell, who looks after public relations for the group. The volunteer has a list of patients coming in and lets them know how to get ready. They give clients clothes to change into for their procedure,

Campbell explained. Patients using this service go in for procedures such as gastroscopy, colonoscopy and intravenous. When patients get paged, the volunteer will take them down to the ambulatory day care room. “It’s much more personable,” said Campbell.

The auxiliary is utilizing the room which used to be the hospital’s operating room on the suggestion of the hospital’s patient care coordinator. Prior to this new service being offered, patients waited in an alcove, and were exposed. There was no privacy and nobody for patients to talk to when they arrived. They would ring an intercom outside the ambulatory day care room, explained Campbell. “This way you have someone to speak to.” Another program the auxiliary started recently is the chapel escort service. It has been running for close to eight months, and is organized by Eleanor Lobb. Volunteers bring residents of the Extended Care Unit to the hospital chapel for regular Sunday service. Service used to be held at the

ECU common area, but it wasn’t an enjoyable atmosphere, according to Lobb’s report. The chapel is just a short distance away and service is conducted by a rotating group of community volunteers. The chapel is non-

denominational and welcomes everyone from all faiths. “It is very heartening to listen to these people sing the old hymns, many of whom (now) seldom speak, and who certainly could not carry on a conversation,” said

Lobb. “... They know all the verses without using the hymn books.” Both programs are still being developed and volunteers are still needed. If you can help, visit www. missionhealthcareauxiliary.com for more information.

They raised five sons together in that house, and in the past 65 years she has also watched the community grow up. “We lived in a farming area. Now it’s nothing but trains going by and cars going by,” she said. “But it’s still Hatzic.” Ken Ellerbeck was her next door neighbour from 1938 to 1953. He doesn’t know where to begin discussing the differences between then and now. In general there is more growth, more activity, but less socializing. “It was a smaller town – trustworthy,” he said. “We never locked our doors, and we never locked our cars.” “People used to visit more. You knew everyone when you walked down main street,” he added. “It’s just that change in atmosphere.” Catherwood said she always enjoys the Pioneer Social. “I like it _ meeting with the old timers and seeing them. I know quite a few.” Heritage Week runs from Feb. 14 to 21, with a sports theme, and there are still events to take in:

he growth and change in Mission was the topic of the day, as the people who built Mission gathered at Kingsway Arms on Sunday afternoon for the Pioneer Social – one of the hallmarks of Mission’s Heritage Week celebrations. At 103 years of age, Lena Charlong was the matriarch of the event. She moved to Mission in 1911. “It was almost a wilderness,” she remembers. “We had to make our own roads.” She has lived on Gaglardi Street for 98 years. The street is named for her father John, who homesteaded there. In addition to his centenarian daughter, John also raised a B.C. cabinet minister, ‘Flying’ Phil Gaglardi. He lost a bid for the premiership to Social Credit icon W.A.C. Bennett. Gaglardi’s term as highways minister, 1952 to 1968, marked the rapid expansion of the province’s roads and bridges. His sister raised a family of five on Gaglardi Street, and once her children were grown up, she went to work for local businesses, doing their books. “It’s a little city now. It was just a wilderness,” she said. “It’s home to me now. Everybody’s friendly.” Her daughter Darlene noted that the family has stayed close, if not right in the immediate area. “We were in church this morning, and four of her five kids were there,” she said. Darlene got her mom ready for the Pioneer Social, which is in her words “a big day.” Nettie Catherwood has a long history in Mission. She came here in 1945, and still lives in the Hatzic house where here late husband Douglas was born.

New mortgage rules take Go site seeing. steam out of home market Mission Hospice Society Visit our website 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! www.missioncityrecord.com

Changes limit speculators, home-equity withdrawals BY JEFF NAGEL

â&#x20AC;?

Black Press

Tighter rules to qualify for a mortgage may put some downward pressure on Lower Mainland housing prices. Federal finance minister Jim Flaherty on Tuesday unveiled changes aimed at preventing a future real estate market collapse and resulting U.S.-style financial collapse here. Behind the move is the expectation interest rates will rise in the months ahead as the economy recovers and growing concern people buying now with cheap credit may be unable to keep up payments down the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a bit of steam out of the housing market,â&#x20AC;? said Central One Credit Union economist Helmut Pastrick. The changes will require buyers to have a bit of extra wriggle room to afford higher payments should rates rise. Buyers will have to prove they could qualify for a five-year fixed term in order to get any type of CMHC-insured mortgage. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up from a three-year qualification threshold now and that translates into a demonstrated ability to make payments if rates rise by half a point to a full percentage point.

The intent is to reduce the element of the housing market where people are just buying for short-term gains... â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Helmut Pastrick, economist

Current home owners who remortgage wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to withdraw as much cash as before â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll now have to keep a minimum 10 per cent equity, up from five per cent now. And anyone wanting a government-insured mortgage to buy an investment home they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live in will have to come up with a 20 per cent down payment, up from five per cent now. Flaherty said the plan is to rein in people who speculate on real estate at the limit of their credit or use their home as an ATM. The finance minister did not move to raise the minimum down payment from five per cent or

reduce the maximum term of 35 years for insured mortgages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; potential measures he had previously floated. Pastrick said the more modest changes shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t threaten B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic recovery from the recession. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intent is to reduce the element of the housing market where people are just buying for shortterm gains and pushing up housing prices to higher levels.â&#x20AC;? But he said it could cut into the supply of rental housing on the market owned by small real estate investors who may be deterred by some of the changes. Greater Vancouver Home Buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association CEO Peter Simpson said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still concerned the measures may go too far at a time when the economic recovery is fragile. He noted the HST will add to the cost of some homes starting July 1 and a hike in mortgage rates is likely by mid-year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could just combine to create a high degree of buyer resistance,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First-time home buyers drive the market. If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dormant, the whole market becomes dormant very quickly and that affects jobs on site with the construction of homes.â&#x20AC;?

for a podium finish. The Canada Line carried a record 210,000 people Saturday – twice as many as ever rode the line in a single day before. More than 500,000 rode the Expo and Millennium SkyTrain lines Sunday

and 133,000 took the SeaBus over the weekend. “Those are very, very large numbers,” said TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie. “And there are waits.” The longest lineups have seen passengers

wait 35 to 40 minutes at downtown Canada Line stations before they could board trains. That wasn’t unexpected – in fact it’s been better than the hour-long waits TransLink forecast. The surprising numbers of people taking SeaBus, led to “crush conditions” at Waterfront Station during parts of Sunday. Passengers faced twosailing waits to cross Burrard Inlet. That generally meant a 20-minute wait, because SeaBuses now leave every 10 minutes. The bus system has also been heavily strained. TransLink has deployed all of the 160 buses it held in reserve to battle Olympic congestion. “That strategy seems to be paying off because it gives us the flexibility to put them where we need them, when we need them,” Hardie said. The busiest bus route was the 99 B Line along Broadway to UBC. Some other routes saw already full buses pass waiting passengers without stopping. More reserve buses were added to routes coming to the Canada Line from White Rock, South Surrey and Delta after reports of more pass-ups there. Extra buses were also put on some night bus routes, which handle late night traffic after SkyTrain lines shut down. SkyTrain service ramped up to Olympic levels last Friday, with trains running less than two minutes apart nearly all day. The flow of traffic on the roads has been surprisingly smooth. Hardie said it appears most motorists have gotten the message and avoided driving downtown. The City of Vancouver estimated it hit its goal of a 30 per cent cut in vehicle trips to downtown last Friday. Daniel Fontaine, coeditor of the website citycaucus.com, said the transit system is “quite taxed” but is so far slightly outperforming Torino when it hosted the 2006 Winter Olympics.Visitors he’s encountered are happy. “They’re saying this is marvelous – there’s no problem.” It’s been more challenging for spectators to get to and from Olympic alpine venues. Vanoc’s Olympic Bus Network had early problems getting passengers up to Cypress Mountain.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Pursuant to the provisions of Sections 890 and 892 of the Local Government Act, a Public Hearing will take place in the Council Chambers of the Municipal Hall, 8645 Stave Lake Street, Mission, BC at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, February 22, 2010 to consider the following proposed bylaws: 1.

Deadline looms for groups to apply for their grant in aid

T

he Municipality reminds community groups engaged in arts, cultural, recreational or social services activities that they may be eligible to receive a grant in aid. Each year council budgets a limited amount of funds to assist such local groups with activities that benefit the community at

large. Eligibility requirements and application procedures are available at the Administration Department, Municipal Hall, 8645 Stave Lake Street during normal business hours. The deadline for submitting applications is March 1, 2010. Incomplete applications will not be considered, so we urge

anyone wishing to make an application to do so early, so that municipal staff can review the submission. The completed applications are subsequently reviewed by the Municipal Grants Advisory Committee, who then provides a recommendation to Council on the grants awards.

Planning your landscaping When planning your landscaping consider what effect placing trees and shrubs near your front property line will have on the streetscape when the vegetation is fully mature.

Unfortunately many beautiful trees and shrubs have to be cut down or drastically trimmed because they interfere with pedestrian traffic on sidewalks, with the visibility of signs or with clear

sight distances for traffic. It is not safe to have people stepping off the sidewalk into the road to walk around vegetation. Please place your plants away from the property line.

s with all things there are seasons to an angler’s life. It starts with a desire to catch a fish, which later becomes a wish to catch large numbers of fish. As time goes on, an angler’s aspirations move toward catching larger and more challenging fish. Some never pass this point, while other progress to the place of giving back. Giving back to our Jeff sport can take many forms: Releasing fish for others to enjoy catching; volunteering at a fish hatchery or with a group of stream keepers; writing books or magazine articles on the subject; sharing your skills with others one on one or with groups. Teaching others was the opportunity I was given, starting with youth, 14 years ago. It began on a spring afternoon at Terry Fox Secondary school, when business education teacher Ken Miscisco invited me to assist him and Scott Parker in forming a youth fly fishing club in the coming fall. Little did I know that agreeing would put me on a road that would later lead to the coordination of two clubs with a joint membership of 100, teaching night school in four school districts, and writing a sport fishing column carried by three newspapers and two online magazines. Giving back starts with put-

ting aside your wants for the greater good of the whole. While doing this, rewards come in ways one would seldom consider and in forms rarely expected. Over the coming weeks I will be sharing some

of the blessings I have seen, in my corner of sport fishing as a result of putting the wishes of others before my own.

The report Our Lower Mainland lakes

are fishing well from mid morning to dusk. Concentrate on the warmer water in the northeastern sections of your favourite lake. Try Big Black, Wooly bugger, Micro Leach, Baggy Shrimp, Coachman, Bloodworm, Chironomid, Cased caddis, Zulu, or Doc Spratley. The Fraser River back waters and sloughs are fishing well for cutthroat and rainbow. For cutthroat try: Flesh Fly, Eggo, Egg & Eye Alevin, Rolled Muddler, Mickey Finn, Tied Down Minnow, Professor, Lioness, Winter Stone, Coachman, Zulu, Chez Nymph, or Souboo. For rainbow try the above along with red Spratley, red Carey, Kaufmann Stone, Royal Coachman or Black Gnat. The Stave River is fair to good for cutthroat, rainbow, and whitefish. For whitefish try: small (#14 to#20) Eggo, Flesh Fly, Griffith Gnat, Stone Nymph, Chironomid, or Caddis Nymph. The Harrison River is good for cutthroat. The Chehalis River is slow for steelhead, cutthroat and rainbow. For steelhead try: Squamish Poacher, Thor, GP, Popsicle, Big Black, Flat Black, polar Shrimp, Eggo, Steelhead Nightmare, Purple Peril, Holliman, Kaufmann Stone, or Steelhead Spratley. The Vedder River is fair to good for steelhead, cutthroat, and rainbow. The Squamish River is slow for cutthroat, and dolly varden. For dolly varden try: large #4 to #2, Zonker, Eggo, Bucktail, Big Black, or Clouser’s Deep Minnow. Until the next time, keep your fly in the water.

Roadrunners win Valley championship Mission’s Chelsea Reist named tournament MVP BY

Mission Record

The Mission Roadrunners won their fourth straight Fraser Valley varsity girls basketball championship on Saturday in Chilliwack, and will bring a powerhouse to the double A provincial championships in Kamloops in the coming week. Leading the way will be Chelsea Reist, who was voted the Valley tournament’s most valuable player. “She was steady throughout the tournament,” said her coach Anthony Luyken, noting that in addition to the Mission Roadrunner girls head obvious offence she supplies Reist coach Anthony Luyken. also rebounds, defends and runs the floor well. “It’s consistency in what ment championship against the Holy Cross of Surrey. The Crusaders are she does.” The tourney began for Mission ranked eighth in B.C., had been as with an 84-20 layup drill against high as fifth, and gave the Roadrunhost G.W. Graham. Reist scored 27 ners a tough game. “They’re a talented group, but points, and Ravel Gill, who was we did what we had to do,” said named a first-team all-star, had 22. Their second game was another Luyken. Mission led by as much as 18, and lopsided affair, as Mission, the thirdranked team in the province, beat finally won the game 70-60. Reist Sam Robertson Technical of Maple scored 27 points and Daigneault 17. “It’s really neat to see this crew celRidge 66-36. Gill led the scoring with 20 points, while Jess Daigneault had ebrate another Fraser Valley Champi12. Daigneault was also named to the onship,” said Luyken. “It’s been a pretty good year for these girls.” tournament’s first all-star team. They went undefeated in league Those two wins led to the tourna-

play at 8-0, and have lost only four games all season, all against tough competition. The Mission girls will leave Tuesday for Kamloops, where the provincial tournament will be held from Feb. 24 to 27. The Roadrunners will need to beat some good teams if they are to take a B.C. title. The York House Tigers of Vancouver are the top-ranked team in the province, and they hosted a tournament featuring the top teams at the end of January. Mission ran into the second-ranked Clarence Fulton Maroons in the tourney semi-final, and lost 84-81. If they meet again, Mission will have to give the Maroons fewer freethrows. “We can beat them, but we put them on the line 28 times,” said Luyken. An even tougher opponent would be top-ranked York House, who left the Maroons red faced after a 74-56 drubbing in the final of that same tournament. Luyken said his team has yet to play its best game. “We’re getting there,” he said. “With a week of solid practice and pushing ourselves, we’ll get there.”

Mission Icebreakers goaltender Hunter Wiebe, a midge affiliate, had a 42-save effort to beat the Abbotsford Pilots 2-1 on Sunday.

NEIL CORBETT

Mission Record

With just a week to play in their season, the Mission Icebreakers grabbed the last playoff spot in their conference – beating their rival Abbotsford Pilots 2-1 to do it. Following a 4-1 loss to the Grandview Steelers on Saturday night at the Burnaby Winter Club, Icebreakers coach Jeff Regier

called up a Midget affiliate goaltender out of Chilliwack for Sunday afternoon’s home game, and the kid put in a 42-save effort to get the win. Hunter Wiebe was named the player of the game in only his second game in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League this season. “Twice I’ve used him, and he’s won both games,” said Regier. “Wednesday in Aldergrove he gets the start.”

Wiebe was the last goaltender cut from the Fraser Valley major midget team. “He’s very mobile and he sees the puck well, and that’s what you want,” said the coach. Joel Venema and Darren Lundrigan were the Mission scorers. Regier also praised his penalty killers, who blanked a formidable Abby power play at 0-for-5.

Boys eliminated The Mission Roadrunners senior boys’ season ended in Chilliwack, after they lost two of their three games. The boys started with a 68-49 win over Abbotsford Christian, but then lost to Southridge 63-54, and to Holy

Cross 56-50. Those two teams weren’t lightweights, as Southridge finished second in the tournament and Holy Cross third. Josh Kunz was named a second team all-star.

“We played real well. The only goal they got was on a deflection,” said Regier. “It was simple hockey. That’s what we’ve preached, that’s what they did, and it worked.” Last night the Icebreakers took on the Kodiaks at the Aldergrove

Community Centre. Results were not available at press deadline. Then, on Saturday in Port Moody they will face the fifth-place Black Panthers team that is trying to take the fourth and final playoff spot in the Harold Brittain Conference away from them. That game goes at 7:45 p.m. So far this season the Icebreak-

ers are 3-3 against Port Moody. The Icebreakers last regular season game will be played at the Leisure Centre on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. against the Delta Ice Hawks. If the Icebreakers hold on to the final playoff spot, it is likely they will start in Maple Ridge on Friday, Feb. 26, against the conference leading Flames.

Mission’s Dan Crich stops to pick up some snow during his performance at B.C. Place Stadium for the Opening Ceremony CAROL AUN PHOTO

of acoustic music in the gallery,

Mission youth made his acting debut on the Olympic stage. Dan Crich got into the Olympic spirit early, knowing it would be a once in a lifetime experience; he didn’t want to let any opportunity slip by. The Heritage Park school student signed up to help during the Opening Ceremony, but he wasn’t sure what would happen. He wanted to keep his options open and told organizers he could dance and act. He hadn’t done either one before, but he was willing to give it a try. Crich was asked to audition for a dance number and later as an actor during the summer last year. “I didn’t do very well at the dance audition,” said Crich recalling the sequence he was asked to do. Surprisingly, he was called back to audition for a second time as an actor. The aspiring entertainer admitted his dad didn’t want him to do it because he “sometimes doesn’t know when to say no.” But the Olympics was something Crich was passionate about, and he wanted to be a part of it. “I really wanted to do this and I explained it to him,” he noted. He didn’t know what role he was applying for, or if he was selected until September. That’s when his life started to change. In addition to going to school full time in Mission, and working as a swing manager at McDonald’s, playing soccer and volunteering around the community, Crich now had to make room for rehearsals. They started slow, with just two in November, four or five in December, but things picked up in January. There were 10 rehearsals that month, and in the weeks leading up to the event, there were even more. Crich took a week off school and lived in Surrey with his aunt for the final week of rehearsals. There were four rehearsals that week, and the days were long. Crich enjoyed working on the project, but he couldn’t tell anyone what he was doing. The Grade 12 student admitted even

he didn’t know what the rest of the ceremony was like until it all came together. His heart was racing and his excitement was barely containable when the dress rehearsal for Hymn to the North was performed in front of friends and family, and later VANOC. But there are no words to describe how he felt the night of the Opening Ceremony when B.C. Place was filled thousands of people and immeasurable cheers. “We watched everything happen in our dressing room,” said Crich, who explained his cast waited until athletes from countries under the letter ‘P’ walked out before he left the dressing room. He was anxious and nervous. He tried to stay focused and went over in his mind things he should and should not do like looking directly at the camera. Dressed in an impressive white costume with a padded jacket and small lights sewn into it, Crich and his group walked onto the stage after Bryan Adams and Nelly Furtado finished their duet. They were led by a man, also in a white costume and with a walking stick, who emerged looking lost. It’s snowing and as he looks around, his family and people are behind him. Crich was in that group with his family, his mom, dad, two sisters and grandfather. “We made up our own journey,” said Crich, who played in the snow and eventually walked away with his sister after having an argument with his mother. “We go over and meet other people,” he added. “And we embrace them.” The crowd was loud, but when the big polar bear emerged from the stage, “everyone went crazy,” said Crich, whose performance ended shortly afterwards. There weren’t any seats reserved for the performers to watch the rest of the show, and Crich was eager to leave before thousand of people packed the SkyTrain to get home. Crich had already been at B.C. Place since 1:45 p.m. that day. It was a long day, but rehearsals have lasted longer. The Mission youth enjoyed working with his cast and is sad he won’t be going back for any more rehearsals. “They were like a second family,” he said. “They chose great people to put this together, everyone got along so well.” Now that the big event is over, Crich is busy catching up with his school work, and he also wants to pursue other acting opportunities. Currently he has his sights on being a part of the next Winter Olympics in Russia.

FOR THE 2010 EXPERIENCE

ENJOY YOURSELF

All of us should eat and drink, and enjoy what we have worked for; it is God’s gift. This nice little verse is from Ecclesiastes 3:13, and when I read it, I immediately thought of its appropriateness and how it relates to almost everyone in our daily struggles to try and balance our work and play. Simple as it is, this verse just struck me right and made me feel good, because it was a scriptural reminder that we are all supposed to enjoy the fruits of our labor. I hope we can all take this to heart. If we feel guilt or some other negative emotion regarding what we have worked so hard to achieve, then our accomplishments may not be as enjoyable, nor is this what God wants for us. God wants us to be physically and mentally sound, and balancing our time between work and recreation is necessary to achieve this. This is important not only for us, but for our relationship with our loved ones. So, within reason and with some degree of discretion, we should try to enjoy the blessings that our Lord gives to each of us, and we should prayerfully thank Him for the enjoyment of life.

… God, who generously gives us everything for our enjoyment. Good News Bible 1 Timothy 6:17 St. Paul’s Mission Ukranian Presbyterian Church Orthodox Church www.stpaulspc.ca

John was a hard working proud logger, and in later years was a welder for ESCO. He had a love of nature and the great outdoors, where he spent countless hours fishing. John’s love of his life, soul mate, and wife of 50 years, Nadyne, cared for him after his much needed kidney transplant on January 30th, 2001. He felt very fortunate to once again be able to enjoy his family, friends and of course fishing. John was very proud of his two sons, Leonard (Kathi) and Garth, and was very supportive and held a special pride for his grandsons, Scott and Thomas. He will also be deeply missed and forever in the hearts of his sisters, Ellen, Jerry, Frieda, Marge, Wanda and Pauline, brothers Keith and Chester and their families, as well as many lifelong friends. A Celebration honouring John’s life will be held in the spring of 2010. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation or a charity of your choice.

PIANO PLAYER REQUIRED

The Central Fraser Valley Fiddlers requires backup piano players. The CFVF play on a regular basis in the Fraser Valley. Our fiddle group consists of 25 fiddlers along with backup guitar and other instruments. We are a volunteer group. Playout money goes towards maintaining our equipment, bursaries, etc. The group practices 3 Wednesday evenings a month at Hallmark Assisted Living on Princess Street in Abbotsford. Backup piano playing is chord playing. A knowledge of chords and their inversions is required. We have the music for all of our tunes, but playing by ear is a definite asset. Our group i s made up of all ages and we have tremendous fun playing old time fiddle music. Please contact Norma Popescul @ 604-855-6949 or ndp2000@shaw.ca if you are interested
