Teachers back in class today BY JASON ROESSLE AND TOM FLETCHER Mission Record

Students were expected back in classes today after a three-day strike that saw teachers standing outside their places of employment, and in other visible spots throughout Mission. Teachers were also to have gathered on Second Avenue in front of the Mission Teachers’ Union (MTU) office Wednesday afternoon, after The Record’s press deadline, culminating in a rally along First Avenue. “We wish you to know that we took this action reluctantly and only after careful consideration,” said a press release from the MTU. “The government would have the public believe that this strike is all about wage increases for teachers. What the government does not want to talk about is the savage destruction of our collective agree-

ment and basic rights as workers.” Several local educators also made the trek to Victoria Tuesday and joined between 4,000 and 5,000 union members as they marched on the B.C. legislature to protest legislation putting an end to seven months of job action by public school teachers. Teachers and other union members came by bus, plane and ferry from around the province to demand that the government withdraw Bill 22, which will impose a cooling-off period and appoint a mediator to seek a settlement within the government’s “net zero” wage mandate for B.C.’s 41,000 teachers. B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert addressed the crowd to cheers and chants of “shame” as she described 10 years of government action to “strip” BCTF contracts. Bill 22 repeals 2002 legislation struck down by the B.C. Supreme Court, but reinstates many of their provisions,

Lambert said. Lambert also denounced new performance evaluations and disciplinary measures for teachers. “One bad report and you’re gone,” she said. B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair told the crowd the restriction of teacher rights to strike and bargain working conditions are a blow to all unions. He and Lambert both said the government refused to put the year-long teacher dispute to an independent mediator, and have restricted any settlement to fund wage and benefit increases through savings found within the education system. The BCTF has demanded a 16 per cent wage increase and benefit improvements that the employers’ negotiators say will cost taxpayers an extra $2 billion a year. Education Minister George Abbott said the government will continue to debate Bill 22 without extending legislature hours, despite

an opposition delaying tactic where all 34 NDP MLAs are speaking for the maximum time. That could drag the debate into next week, where teachers are in a legal position to strike for one more day. If teachers continue their walkout Thursday and Friday in defiance of a Labour Relations Board ruling on essential services, the government would reassess its position, Abbott said. Pickets put up by members of the BCTF and other unions at government offices around Victoria Tuesday morning directed unionized staff not to go to work, but to register for strike pay with the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union and then attend the rally instead. The government applied to the Labour Relations Board for an injunction against picketing, which the BCTF was prohibited from doing in an earlier ruling that allowed a three-day strike this week.

Taxes will not be increasing this year, said Mayor Ted Adlem at Monday’s council meeting before adding he couldn’t provide details until Thursday. Coun. Nelson Tilbury said staff deserve the credit for the “zero per cent increase.” “A lot of people thought we were going to run [Mission] like a business but that hasn’t been the case. What’s been done is using best business practices,” he said. According to the 2012 draft budget published by the district Nov. 3, it estimated taxes would need to be increased by 6.15 per cent to maintain current service levels, and that it would take $1.3 million in savings to lower that increase to just one per cent. Another surprise was the announcement that residential flat-rate water and sewer services will be increasing two per cent each, despite previous estimates they would both increase five per cent. The draft budget noted water rates were expected to rise to $470 from $447 last year. That number will now be closer to $456 with a two per cent increase. Sewer services were projected to rise to $357 from $340 last year, but instead will increase roughly $7. There will be more budget details available on the district’s website Thursday morning, followed by a public input session held at district hall March 15.

Two decades of service YOUR EYES BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

T

he essence of firefighting is helping your neighbour, and after 20 years, the members of Mission Fire/Rescue Service’s station three continue to serve in that spirit. From the original 17 members, five still remain, and on Saturday will be celebrating two decades of putting their lives on the line for Silverdale residents’ safety and property. Before the Silverhill Avenue station was built, the community fire protection was provided by station one, located on Seventh Avenue, and if there was a house fire or other serious incident, it would take at least 10 minutes for that first truck to arrive. Now, that time has been cut roughly in half, resulting in far better saves, say the paid oncall volunteers. Chief Mike Lavallee, Capt. Leonard Pesonen, Lieut. Phil Daigle, Lieut. Joe McElroy, and Firefighter Kevin O’Beirne each shared several stories recently about how the hall’s location and its contingent of firefighters have benefited the closeknit rural community. In particular, Pesonen recalled a house fire last year just up from the hall that started between the laundry room and garage. The close proximity of the station en-

abled firefighters to arrive quickly, and quench the fire before it spread to the rest of the house. Station three came into being from the simple premise that the community wanted it, said O’Beirne. The Southwest Mission Ratepayers — helmed at the time by Kevin’s father, Tom O’Beirne — came together and put on countless fundraisers to match dollar for dollar what the district contributed. The province then matched that total with a grant. Daigle, who will be retiring this year, remembers coming into the hall for the first time in December 1991 and finding one fire truck next to a large pile of lumber. “It was so big we had to crawl over it to get to the truck,” he said with a laugh. Each man had different reasons for joining up, and staying for 20 years. Pesonen said he knew several people at his work in Maple Ridge who were firefighters, so when the call went out that Silverdale was getting its hall, he put his name forward because he didn’t think there would be a large number of younger men able to meet the time or physical demands of the job. Daigle had lived in several cities growing up and always thought it “would be neat to be a

firefighter, but I was too small.” When the community asked for volunteers, he applied. O’Beirne sat on the fire committee when the project was getting started, and when he began asking people to sign up as firefighters, a friend said they should sign up together. “I signed up, but he never did,” O’Beirne chuckled. “But it’s been a great experience. Joe McElroy’s wife pushed him to try it, and since he had lived in the adjacent Silverhill School for seven years, it was an easy commute in the middle of the night. For Lavallee, he was looking for a way to

contribute to a community in which he had lived for only 18 months at that time, and firefighting seemed an “interesting” way. Aside from Lavallee and Daigle, the other three plan to remain on until it isn’t fun anymore. “It’s a pseudo-family,” said Pesonen. “It’s good to be here with the guys.” Open house The public is invited to come out Saturday, March 10 to fire station three for an open house between 1 and 4 p.m. The station is located at 30435 Silverhill Ave. For more information call 604-820-3793.

Mission Healthcare Auxiliary Volunteering is rewarding... challenging... fulfilling

Eleanor Lobb & Lorraine Hughes recently celebrated 50 years service with the Mission Health Care Auxiliary.

Forestry department to cover $258,000 loss with reserves BY ADRIAN MACNAIR Mission Record

Volunteers such as Eleanor & Lorraine have consistently demonstrated their dedication to providing the best service to the community. Volunteers offer their time by lending assistance in MMH, nonmedical services and patient comforts or the Cottage Thrift Shop raising funds for much needed equipment for the hospital and community.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE! Stop by, pick up a application at MMH 7324 Hurd St., or the Thrift Shop at 33228 First Ave.

The district’s forestry operation lost over a quarter-million dollars in 2011, according to figures released at Monday’s council meeting. The $258,000 loss will be covered by the forestry reserve which is currently sitting at $412,000. “This gives you an indication that we should be building up the reserves in forestry,” said Coun. Larry Nundal. Director of forest management Kim Allan said the projected increase in logging volumes in the next two years will raise revenues. The district has

been cutting less than its maximum allotment, and saving its best timber for when the market rebounds, he added. Mission’s operation is within a five-year cut control period ending 2013 operating at a 35,000 to 38,000 cubic metres (m3) volume. That will now rise to about 50,000 m3 in the final two years. The loss is being blamed on a lower volume of harvested logs, market declines in the latter part of the year, and the less valuable younger age and species mix. Allan said that although the direct costs of logging has remained profitable, the department’s

overhead costs have to be taken into account. “We have a building, we have bills to pay, brushing plantations, doing reforestation, recreation trails, staff overhead, you know, the fixed costs. So, when we make money over and above from our logging, we need to pay those other things as well.” “The expert forecasts are that we are moving into a more profitable period,” said Coun. Jenny Stevens, rebuffing skepticism from Coun. Tony Luck. Forestry will be part of the council’s core services review, taking place between March and June.

DBA makes recommendations The Downtown Business Association has submitted six recommendations toward encouraging people to visit, shop, and eat on First Avenue. Included in the recommendations is a controversial call to lower the speed limit to just 30 km/h and divert trucks using the Murray Street overpass. Other suggestions include increased parking enforcement, higher urban density, and pushing for eastbound trains during the day. Staff were directed to come back with a report on the recommendations.

Suspects sought in attempted grow rips Two attempted grow rips in two days have prompted RCMP to ask for the public’s help. Shortly after 1:30 p.m. March 2, Mission RCMP responded to a 911 call of a home invasion in progress in the 32000-

block of Beaver Drive. The alleged suspect(s) kicked in the front door of the residence then fled after being confronted by the homeowner. Police later found an illicit marijuana grow operation.

RCMP believe the residence was being targeted, said Cpl. Sharon Siluch, adding there were young children living there. The male suspect is described as approximately six feet tall with

Problem houses shut down A coordinated effort by Mission’s police and fire departments helped shut down 20 problem houses in 2011. Mission RCMP are now asking the public to do its part and report suspected problem houses. Problem houses — sometimes referred to as “flop houses” or “crack shacks” — often become havens for illegal activity such as illicit drug use, trafficking and property crime. Since the beginning of 2011, local RCMP and the Mission Crime Prevention Office have met monthly

with property owners and landlords to educate and share information on what is taking place on their properties. To learn more on how to record and report suspicious activity, visit www. mission.rcmp.gc.ca. Also, for more information on the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program and the Landlord Tenancy Act, visit www.bccpa.org. To report suspicious activity or crimes, call 604-826-7161, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

4, RCMP were called to break and enter in progress in the 32000-block of McRae Avenue. The homeowner interrupted two alleged suspects who appeared to be targeting this residence as it, too, had an illicit mar-

OPINION

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

No winners in dispute The full-scale strike this week by B.C. teachers was inevitable. After essentially working to rule for months while the government dug in its heels on its “net zero” wage freeze mandate, tensions finally reached the boiling point. And the teachers were walking the sidewalks instead of imparting the Three Rs in classrooms. Working parents, accustomed to the routine of carting their kids off to school while they went to their jobs, were left scrambling for alternative care. That the labour dispute was allowed to reach this stage is a gamble by both sides. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation says the strategy it had been employing since the beginning of the school year created little disruption on learning or the daily routines of students and their families while still allowing its 41,000 members to make their point. By escalating their job action to a province-wide walkout, teachers are hoping they’ll be able to drive home their stand that years of government cutbacks to education funding have strangled their ability to educate effectively. The government, by introducing legislation that would impose its own mediator to settle the dispute once and for all and force the teachers back to their desks, is gambling the voting public is fed up with the teachers. Letting the teachers cool their heels outside for a few days, causing great disruption to students and their parents, may only feed that impression. Students will lose three valuable days of learning. Parents will lose sleep, and likely a few bucks, organizing alternative care. Teachers will lose income and risk losing support. The government risks losing understanding for its hard-line stance. It’s difficult to see how the wounds from this fractious dispute will ever be healed.

BCTF indoctrinating our kids P erhaps the single most ridiculous stunt in the lead-up to this week’s teachers’ strike was pulled at an elementary school here in the capital. A teacher gave her Grade 1 class an assignment for antibullying day: take crayons in hand and write to Education Minister George Abbott, demanding he stop bullying their teacher and address class size and composition. This North Korea-style political indoctrination of six-year-olds was a mistake, according to the local teachers’ union boss, who vaguely indicated that the unnamed teacher would apologize to parents. Is this self-serving abuse of teacher authority an isolated incident? My experience as a parent and journalist suggests it is not, and recent events support that. By Friday, students across B.C. were skipping class in solidarity with their teachers, led by budding campus radicals suddenly conversant with B.C. Teachers’ Federation talking points about “Bill 22.” This left-wing groupthink

pervades the education system from public schools through taxpayer-supported colleges and universities. After a couple of generations of this indoctrination, almost everyone “knows” that government under-funding is at the heart of every school problem, standardized testing is an assault on the fragile selfesteem of students, and reducing class size is the top priority for improving educational outcomes. All of this is glaringly false union propaganda, reinforced in classroom “current afTo fairs” discussions. Don’t believe me? Google “Study: Class size doesn’t matter” for the latest on a growing stack of scientific evidence that shows you and your children are being force-fed lies. B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert announced the strike on live TV with a remarkable string of rhetoric about the “Orwellian” legislation that will

soon put an end to this teacher tantrum. The government needs to negotiate “clearly, rationally and respectfully,” said the boss of union representatives who have spent the last year insulting the taxpayers’ negotiators by telling them to “go back to your masters” and get a couple of billion more. Clearly? It was the BCTF that announced its workto-rule plan for the fall and then took the summer off. It was the BCTF that didn’t even present its outrageous 16-per-cent m wage demand until January, a full 10 months after formal negotiations began, and accompanied it with a false costing. Orwellian? At a sparsely attended rally on the legislature lawn, local teachers’ unions marched out their most strident tame trustee to demand the government “come to the table” with billions. In Vancouver, a protesting teacher got big media play,

holding up a sign proclaiming that “it’s not about a wage increase, it’s about classroom conditions.” This too is a lie. The BCTF trotted out its standard “children first” rhetoric, then tabled its breathtakingly outof-touch benefit demands. It doesn’t take a math teacher to see what its $2 billion wage and benefit fantasy would actually do to classroom conditions. For his part, Abbott started out pretty keen about students and parents heading down to occupy their local school and replace striking teachers with volunteers for a couple of days. But he changed his tune after the support staff union started grumbling about parents colouring too close to their craft lines. One fight at a time, I guess. The next one will be over teacher performance assessment and the choke-hold of union seniority on school jobs.

YOUR VIEWS To learn more about conditions in Mission schools talk to teachers reading material I found was old newspapers and magazines and they all learned.” I can only chant the motto from my superintendent, “We’re doing the best we can with what we’ve got.” What we’ve got are your kids, teachers who care and a government that doesn’t. If you’re uncertain about who has your child’s best interest at heart, talk to a teacher on the side of the road near a school. Contact your MLA, school trust-

ee, education minister George Abbott, or Premier Christy Clark and let them know how you feel about the way education is deteriorating in this province. I’m sure you’ll agree with me your kids are worth it. Thank you high school students that stood up for your own education. I’m proud of you. Thank you parents that continuously and tirelessly raise funds for our schools because our government won’t. Carol-Ann Giroday Mission

Editor, The Record: I’m sitting on the side of the road for three days outside the school where I’ve taught for 23 years. My first strike in 1989 was for two weeks, but we bargained a contract that set class size limits and only three special needs students per class. We now have 30 kids in a Grade 5/6 split but there may be four to six special needs students in the class. In some shop classes there are eight special needs students with no extra support and the teachers are afraid to turn on the machinery. Special needs students include those with learning disabilities, speech problems, autism, are deaf or blind, have Down syndrome, are ESL, or have severe behaviour problems. Students with severe behaviour designations might swear, spit, choke, punch, stab, throw chairs or have suicidal tendencies. I am a learning assistance teacher and case manager for 25 special needs students. I know their needs and they are not getting enough support, in fact, far from it. We have no special education teachers, seven education assistants (EAs), and really good classroom teachers. My husband wonders why I get upset about what’s happening in schools. He says it is the government’s responsibility to see that children in this province are educated. But guess what parents, our government is not being responsible. In 1989 when we were on strike, the late Dorothy Moon, a dedicated Mission teacher in the 1920s said to us, “What are you teachers complaining about? I taught 50 students in one room, all different ages, and the

No support offered for BC Teachers’ Federation Editor, The Record: Currently in B.C. there is an on-going labour dispute between the BC Teachers’ Federation and the BC Public School

Employers’ Association. I would love to support the teachers and their requests, but I can’t for one reason. It is the same reason why I do not actively lend my

voice to any public service union action, namely, the lack of evaluation, assessment and, when necessary, removal of an ineffective employee.

Want to know more about our Abbotsford Heat hockey team?

I believe the majority of teachers are competent at their jobs. There are some that are fantastic at their jobs. And then there are some who do not have the capacity to teach or manage a classroom and therefore should not have the responsibility of educating our children. As a parent with three children in the public school system and having been on a PAC executive, I have witnessed a wide gamut of teachers’ education styles and levels of competency. Many parents have approached

me seeking advice on how to address concerns over a teacher’s incompetence, but because of the current process (or lack thereof) I have been unable to provide assistance or even the hope that their situation might be addressed. The current evaluation process is based on the assumption that there is a level of competency being met by all teachers. While recognizing that teachers must have some basic security against parents who, as the result of a misguided agenda, might attach blame to the

teacher when their son or daughter is not thriving, I believe an internal process of evaluation, which parents can fully support and understand, must be implemented in order to resolve the issue of competency in teaching. At present there is no such recourse for parents whose children are on the receiving end of ineffective, and in some cases, destructive channels of education. I worry that since a teacher’s union pay and security is greater than one can normally expect in the non-unionized, pri-

vate middle-class sector, teachers who are ineffective will have no motivation to change career paths to something more suitable to their skills set. The economic cost to society to keep these teachers employed is too great, especially when considering the subsequent risk to the students they teach in terms of self-worth, social inclusion and educational growth. If this one area were addressed in a meaningful manner I would lend my support to the BCTF. Donna Tennant Mission

An information session about construction of a seniors’ centre in Mission was held at the Leisure Centre last Thursday. JASON ROESSLE PHOTO Janice, Owner

Residents queried on seniors’ centre needs Dozens of residents turned out Thursday afternoon at the Leisure Centre to look at storyboards, fill out surveys and listen to Mission’s director of planning discuss four possible options for a new, permanent home for the Seniors’ Centre. Sharon Fletcher briefly discussed the options and addressed some questions council asked staff to look at in the past. Seniors who attended were given a

survey to fill out that asked a variety of questions such as: • Should there be one centre or several smaller sites? • Who should own it? • What sort of amenities should it have? A potential partnership between St. Andrew’s United Church, the District of Mission and the Mission Seniors’ Association was presented to council in October.

New Residential Construction Guide Benefits Homeowners and Builders Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertipss to help them better understand how warranty providers evaluate claims for possible design, labour or material defects in new homes. The Residential Construction Performance Guide is the newest online resource available on the provincial Homeowner Protection Office website at www.hpo.bc.ca. It explains how homes covered by home warranty insurance should perform. Every new home built for sale by a licensed residential builder in B.C. is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. “For most consumers, buying a new home is one of the largest financial investments they will make. So it’s essential that homebuyers can make that investment with confidence, knowing that they will not be faced with additional expenses to repair defects after they move in,” said Tony Gioventu, executive director of the Condominium Home Owners’ Association and an advocate for consumer protection. This simple, practical guide is easy to use. It outlines more than 200 possible defects that are searchable online. This includes the most common defect claims that might be submitted under a home warranty insurance policy – from windows that malfunction, to driveway or interior concrete floors that have cracked, to siding that has buckled. Designed primarily for conventional low-rise, wood-frame homes, the guide also provides some helpful guidelines for the common property of multi-unit buildings. Builders can also use the guide to help ensure that they deliver high performance homes.

Register for upcoming Hillstompers’ run

Twisters succeed in Surrey A number of Mission gymnasts placed well at the Surrey Classic Invitational held last weekend, including Steven Chaplin whose performance helped him move forward to the Canadian championships.

DISTRICT OF MISSION ZONING AMENDING BYLAW 3943-2006 (R06-023 – Holman) This bylaw proposes to amend District of Mission Zoning Bylaw 5050-2009 by: (a) adding the new CD-14 Comprehensive Development zone to accommodate a 109 unit clustered residential development consisting of bare land strata acreage lots, common open spaces and one approximate 17.9 acre fee simple farm property. The CD-14 zone sets out the permitted, principal and accessory uses, development conditions, lot area, density, number of residential buildings, lot coverage, height of buildings, setbacks, accessory off street parking, agricultural and accessory greenhouse uses; and (b) rezoning a portion of the property located at 8980 East Edwards Street (labelled Area A) and legally described as Parcel Identifier: 013 381 491; South East Quarter Section 35 Township 17 Except: Firstly: Part on Plan 3767 Secondly: Parcel “7” (Explanatory Plan 14778) New Westminster District from Rural 80 (RU80) zone to CD-14 Comprehensive Development zone; and

The Mayor and Council Invite You to Attend a

PUBLIC BUDGET CONSULTATION MEETING TO PROVIDE INPUT ON THEIR PROPOSED 2012 BUDGET on THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2012, starting at 6:30 pm IN THE COUNCIL CHAMBERS OF MUNICIPAL HALL Council is proposing a 0% tax increase for 2012. The 0% has been achieved with minimal impact on District services or service levels. Council would like to hear and/or receive your input or comments before they finalize the District’s 2012 budget and related property tax rates.

(c) rezoning a portion of the property located at 8980 East Edward Street (labelled Area B) and legally described as Parcel Identifier: 013 381 491; South East Quarter Section 35 Township 17 Except: Firstly: Part on Plan 3767 Secondly: Parcel “7” (Explanatory Plan 14778) New Westminster District from Rural 16 (RU16) zone to CD-14 Comprehensive Development zone; and (d) rezoning the property located at 8977 West Edwards Street (labelled Area C) and legally described as Parcel Identifier: 010 997 466; Lot 5 Section 35 Township 17 New Westminster District Plan 3767 from Rural 16 (RU16) zone to CD-14 Comprehensive Development zone. The location of the subject properties is 8980 East Edwards Street and 8977 West Edwards Street and the portions to be rezoned are shown on the following map:

Council is also proposing a 2% increase in water and sewer rates for 2012, in order to pay for major water and sewer infrastructure that will be needed in the future. There is no plan to increase refuse and recycling/composting user rates for 2012. After a brief presentation by staff, members of the public will be invited to address Council in order to provide feedback. A 2012 budget overview document that explains the District’s proposed 2012 budget is available on the District’s website (at www.mission.ca/2012budget). Copies of this document will also be available at the meeting. Council and staff encourage you to attend this important public budget meeting to provide input and to become better informed about the District’s budget/finances. If you are unable to attend this meeting, you can forward any written comments or questions (including e-mails) directly to Municipal Hall and Council at: info@mission.ca. We would appreciate receiving any comments before Friday, March 23, 2012.

The purpose of the proposed amendment is to create a new comprehensive development zone (CD-14) to accommodate the subsequent subdivision of the subject properties into 109 bare land strata lots ranging in size from 1,018 square metres (10,961 sq. ft.) to 2,185 square metres (25,523 sq. ft.) and one (1) fee simple lot that is 17.93 acres in size (within the Agricultural Land Reserve).

The application was originally considered by Council on October 25, 2006; a Public Hearing was held on January 29, 2007 and the bylaws received third reading on May 7, 2007. The purpose of holding a second Public Hearing is to amend the requirements prior to Council consideration of adoption of the zone amending bylaw. Specifically, the applicant is seeking Council approval to enter into a Development Agreement with the District to secure off-site servicing requirements to obtain zoning approval. Copies of the proposed bylaws and reports relevant to these bylaws may be inspected at the Municipal Hall, 8645 Stave Lake Street, Mission, BC, Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and at the Mission Library, 33247 2nd Avenue, during regular opening hours, from March 8, 2012 to March 19, 2012.

18 The Mission Record Thursday, March 8, 2012

Cedar Valley Manor is selling quickly and it is easy to see why. The Mission Association for Seniors Housing (MASH) has a new project on the go. After successfully developing and operating The Cedars, MASH is now developing Cedar Valley Manor, a life lease for independent seniors. Cedar Valley Manor has been purposely designed for seniors in Mission who want to downsize but who are also looking for a warm and supportive community where life is simple. As Judith Ray, the President of MASH says: “Residents can live maintenance free at Cedar Valley Manor. Here they will be able to carry on living in the community they love without having to worry about the yard, snow removal, and the upkeep of their house. And as a Life Lease,” she continues “Mission seniors will have their financial interests secured and looked after as well.” Many people have been wondering about the “Life Lease” model used at Cedar Valley Manor, and as explained by Kate Mancer, Director of Cedar Valley Manor: “Life Lease is a form of tenure perfectly suited to seniors. It allows them

to securely use the equity built up after years of home ownership and provides a wonderful sense of community.” In a Life Lease the resident pays an upfront cost, or “entrance fee,” which is used to pay for the construction of the building, plus a monthly fee which includes general building upkeep and replacement reserves. Taxes are extra but life lease residents qualify for the Homeowner Grant. When people move out, they get 95% of their money back— with no worries about the real estate market and estate planning is so simple. Life lease residents don’t have to worry about management concerns, or being part of a strata council—all of that is looked after by a trusted community-based non-profit organization. Residents know their interests are being looked after by a group whose sole purpose is to provide good quality affordable housing for the seniors of Mission. The MASH mission statement sums it all up perfectly: “Caring for Those Who Cared for Us.”

Mission Chamber of Commerce

BusinessTRACK connect • influence • prosper

The Fraser River - A powerful resource at our front door Mission has utilized the Fraser River to distribute and transport its resources and goods to market since amalgamation in the 1970s.

W

hile our relationship with the river has shifted to the annual freshet flood watch and salmon count, we need to return to utilizing the river in a manner that is built on our economic sustainability. Since the 1800s, locals have diked the Fraser to harness its flow and develop local agriculture. This fertile area now produces more than 62 per cent of the gross farm receipts in B.C. in only 1.6 per cent of the province’s ALR lands. Initially, the Fraser was utilized to move these perishables along with logs and other resources to the growing market and port in Vancouver. Historically, the federal government found value in maintaining the river as an asset through Public Works Canada. In 1998, the federal and provincial governments stepped away from the maintenance of the river and downloaded responsibility to the municipalities and ill-funded diking authorities for maintenance of the flood protection systems; however, they maintained authority over allowing any work to be done. The outcome is a series of bureaucratic processes that take more than two

years to complete and if approval is given, windows of work are usually limited to time during freshet when the river is unworkable. Often these works are limited to small areas with little impact on the whole system. In a quantitative flood risk assessment for the City of Chilliwack, damage and loss figures from a dike-breach scenario would exceed $1 billion. What would be the cost to Mission if flood levels like 1948 occurred again? Impact of that event would affect the industrial parks and shopping areas as well as disrupting transportation routes to the south, east and west. Not only would our employment base be affected but access for those 80 per cent who work outside Mission would also be impacted. Due to siltation and lack of maintenance of a main navigation channel on the Fraser, resources that historically have been moved

to market via the river now must be trucked through Mission. One log boom is equivalent to 50-80 logging trucks. As the river has become impassable for six to eight months of the year east of Mission for items of more than four feet under water, the number of trucks is growing to a record 360 per day through our struggling downtown. Environmentally, the greenhouse gas impact of one tug on the Fraser is less than five trucks. Lack of river maintenance is also impacting softer industries like tourism. Both fishing charters and tour boat operators are not able to traverse the shallow waters which can be as low as 15” in some areas.

expenditures occurs in the Lower Mainland. Looking forward, without a navigable Fraser, Mission’s opportunity to leverage industrial river access in a shrinking market and growth towards short-sea shipping opportunities will be negligible. As the Asia Gateway blossoms, Mission has a unique opportunity to be a hub of rail, road and river to grow our economic base. The Fraser is a comprehensive system. The piecemeal approach that has existed since 1998 is not working. That is why the Mission Chamber is asking the federal and provincial governments to work with local government and First Nations to develop a comprehensive

management plan for the Fraser River that balances economic, environment and public safety of the present system; that the process for work to be done on the river be simplified and that a central authority be created, not unlike the St. Lawrence. This authority would be responsible for the planning and maintenance of the Fraser. The Fraser is the backbone of the province, the mouth of the Asia Gateway and a competitive economic edge for Mission. Managing it is a key to our sustainable development.

During the regularly scheduled March 15 luncheon, the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual general meeting.

S

tarting at noon in the Chapel Room of the Mission Best Western, President Cal Crawford will review the recent member survey and Vice President Elyssa Lockhart will report on the many Chamber advocacy successes of the past year. In addition to a review of the financials, members will be asked to approve a revision of the following bylaw: Article V Officers and Board Section 16A: (2011 bylaws)

• Trevor Girard, Future Right Insurance Services Trevor has served on the Chamber Membership Committee for the past 2 years as an avid contributor.

i) The Board of the Chamber be comprised of twelve (12) elected voting Members each of whom are in good standing, together with three one representative each non-voting liaisons to be appointed by the District of Mission, the Downtown Business Association and Community Futures Development Corporation of North Fraser; for a total of fifteen (15) voting Directors; Presently the Chamber has three liaisons on the Board of Directors with full voting powers though they are not elected by the membership. The revised bylaw while still encouraging the partnerships and collaboration of these organizations, limits their ability to influence the decision making of the Board of Directors.

Nominees for the vacant director positions that have come forward from the membership are: • Vicki Gould, Canadian Tire Choosing Mission to open her Canadian Tire associate store in 2003, Vicki first contacted then Chamber President Cal Crawford.

Vicki serves as chairperson for the Junction Mall Merchants Association (“JMMA”) where she is responsible for chairing monthly meetings and assisting with the planning of Mall events. Vicki is also a Director for the Mission Granite Curling Club, currently responsible for all aspects of Social Media. Vicki holds a Masters of Business Administration through the Simon Fraser University “Executive MBA” program.

Pam worked at the Clarke Theatre from 1996 to 2001 and then started a small company helping the community in producing events. She is a noted community volunteer and has sat in various capacities on many community boards. She chairs the District of Mission Cultural Resources Commission and has also served six years as a School Trustee for Mission Public Schools. A proud Rotarian for over 10 years and she served as its president in 2010. Presently Pam sits on the Chamber’s Tourism Committee and Building Community Leadership Project Team. Nominations can also be made from the floor in keeping with Article VI Section 37 iv of the Chamber’s Bylaws. The Executive positions of the Board include President, Vice-President and Treasurer. The slate to be presented by the Board of Directors includes: Elyssa Lockhart, Lockhart Law Corp. for President, Sean Melia, Prospera Credit Union for Vice-President and Tony Lapointe, Mission Community Services for Treasurer (second term).

And then there were two plays Eight strangers are lured to a mysterious island where each one becomes a suspect in a murder most foul. Opening Nite Theatre presents the classic production of Agatha Christie’s And Then There None opening March 9. This is one of the most popular of Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries. After the strangers arrive, they are told that their host and hostess are currently away and the guests are shifted into their rooms. They soon become stuck on the island with no way out as the weather prevents boats from landing. Tragedies begin

to occur and one by one they are murdered. As there is no one else on the island, they come to the conclusion that the killer must be one of them. But who? The play runs March 9-11, 16-18, and 23-25. Evening performances take place at 8 p.m while Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 from Murdoch’s Bookshoppe on First Avenue or at the door. If you are an art lover, buy a ticket for the March 10 performance, as emerging Mission artist Joy will host an art reception from 6-7:30 p.m. prior to the performance. Joy employs an eclec-

Fifth annual writers and readers festival happens this Sunday

The University of the Fraser Valley’s writer-inresidence, Anosh Irani, will be the keynote speaker at the fifth annual Mission Writers and Readers Festival this Saturday at Heritage Park Centre. This successful ongoing community event will feature readings by estab-

Raised and educated in Mission, he had fond memories of the rural life on Cherry Avenue in the 30’s and 40’s. After graduating from U.B.C., Don travelled in Europe and pursued an acting career in London, eventually returning in 1964 to teach French and drama at Mission Senior Secondary. In his retirement in 1984, he enjoyed reading widely, raising his dog Bear, and entertaining his friends. We remember Don’s wealth of knowledge, his curiosity, his wry sense of his humour and his generosity, and we are grateful for his friendship. A special thanks to the staffs of Maple Ridge Hospital and Christine Morrison Hospice for their professionalism and compassion. At the request of the deceased, there will be no service.

MEL DICK, age 48, Abbotsford ambulance paramedic, father of Rachel and Tim, husband of Monika.

WHAT? I am running the 55K Ultra Marathon on Discovery Trail with Ray Zahab because I like the idea of just running at a pace for a very long time. I started running seriously in 2009, and have run 10Ks, some half marathons and a full marathon, so this seems like the next logical challenge for me as a runner.

Fast Fact #1:

WHY?

person clean

When I am by myself and running I usually pray. I remember kids in Africa who need to walk for miles to get water; they inspire me to run. They need clean, accessible water so that they can go to school and grow up healthy. They need people like us to help them, so that they can live. I run past one pasture quite regularly. Much as I like steak, milk and cheese, I hate the smell of cows. When it rains, the stuff from the pasture flows onto the street, and it stinks. Yet kids in Africa are often stuck with water from sources that have cattle drinking from them and polluting the water. I run because it is the least I can do for these kids.

$35 gives a

water for life.
