Anger expressed over PSIT review Council defeats Stevens’ motion to draft new bylaw BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Those who expected a month-long look into the district’s Public Safety Inspection Team (PSIT) Program to provide answers and direction were disappointed when the report was discussed at Monday’s council meeting. Politicians heard criticism from residents and Coun. Jenny Stevens. Stevens was disappointed with the report, but saved her strongest Stevens condemnation for the questionnaire at the back of the document. “I’ve heard of slanted surveys, but this is a whopper,” said the outspoken councillor who had no knowledge of the survey prior to its release. “This is a total waste of time and council will learn nothing from this ... This is garbage.” She suggested council move clearly in one direction and made a motion to prepare a new bylaw before May 24 restricting PSIT inspections, except for RCMP referrals. Stevens’ motion was applauded by the audience, but her colleagues had other opinions and felt the comments were too harsh. The six other councillors agreed the questionnaire could be more open, but were comfortable with the direction of the process. Coun. Mike Scudder chastised Ste-

vens for her comments, which he says were designed for an audience that has already taken a position. The questions will draw from a different segment of the community and generate responses from other people who don’t have their minds made up about the program yet, said Scudder. “I disagree there’s only one answer. What’s the point of going through the process when the answer is predetermined?” Much work has already been done and more research is underway, said Coun. Paul Horn, encouraging people to offer more feedback. “I don’t know why we would want to prejudge the research.” The review is simply the framework for change and a conclusion can’t be reached until the district gathers community input and has a debate, said Mayor James Atebe. Speakers that night disagreed with some aspects of the report such as how long an inspection takes and whether or not homeowners are allowed to accompany the examiners. A few residents talked about personal cases and wanted to know how the stigma attached to the inspections will be addressed. “When it’s proven I don’t have a [marijuana] grow op, will you go and explain it to my neighbours?” asked Dan Williamson. Input for the ongoing PSIT review can be sent to the district at info@ mission.ca.

Felger arrested, charged BY CAROL AUN

AND

VIKKI HOPES

Mission Record

Pot advocate Timothy Felger remains in police custody after being arrested last Wednesday night and charged with two counts of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and two counts of trafficking. The drugs were allegedly being sold out of Felger’s store Das Bhang, located at the corner of Horne Street and North Railway Avenue in downtown Mission. The store sells convenience items, such as munchies, bongs and glassware, and doubles as a political office for Felger, who plans to run in the upcoming municipal election. Neighbours have been complaining about the business since it relocated from Abbotsford last summer, and police have visited the store in the past. Mounties gathered enough evidence in a two-week investigation to support an arrest, said Mission RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson. Felger, 53, made his first court appearance last Thursday. His next appearance is March 10 for a bail hearing. This is Felger’s second set of trafficking charges currently before the courts. He was arrested and charged in May 2009 for allegedly trafficking pot to teens out of his downtown Abbotsford store, Da Kine, on Essendene Avenue. He next appears on that matter May 5 in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack, along with co-accused Stephan Allingham and Natasha Healy.

The City of Abbotsford cancelled his business licence in the summer of 2009, and Felger continued to operate the location as a “political office.” He was evicted from the site in June 2010, after his landlord obtained a court order on the grounds that Felger allegedly owed $53,000 in back rent. Felger then relocated to Mission. In addition to his drug charges, he was charged with fear of injury/damage by another person for an incident in Mission on Sept. 13. His next court appearance on that matter is June 27 for a trial confirmation hearing.

Council approves 20 recommendations Review on district website BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Myriad complaints from residents about the Public Safety Inspection Team has led council to review the program and associated bylaw. FILE PHOTO

Parking changes coming for WCE riders West Coast Express riders who park their vehicles in the 32900 block of North Railway Avenue will have to start using the paid lot on the south side of the tracks. “No parking 5 a.m. to 8 a.m.” signs will replace the current “no limit” ones, affecting 19 parking stalls on the south side of the street. Parking changes — restricting vehicles to two hours maximum between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. — will also be made to two stalls at the southwest corner of James Street and N. Railway Avenue. These changes are being made to accommodate downtown shoppers and those working in the area. The changes were brought forward by the Downtown Revitalization Task Force.

The Public Safety Inspection Program review contains three main sections and 20 recommendations which were adopted by council and will be phased in over the next few months. The three components are moving forward with public safety inspections, past practices, and notices on title. The review poses many questions and work is still needed, said Mission’s deputy chief administrative officer, Paul Gipps, who authored the document after gathering input from community members, legal counsel, and other municipalities. One of the changes council needs to explore is whether or not a full-time team is still required. With fewer properties being flagged based on high hydro consumption, it is recommended the program use a part-time team with in-house resources, and employ specialists when necessary. Council members also have to decide whether to continue with a financially self-supporting program, or provide it as a taxation-funded service, said Gipps. A part-time crew would incur less costs, and would reduce the current $5,200 fee to homeowners whose properties contain evidence of a marijuana grow operation. The new charge will be looked at as part of

the review. The report also states the district has to communicate better with the public about the program, and the owner and resident of the property up for inspection. There is a perception the district is looking for grow ops, but examiners are probing for safety issues, said Gipps. The charge is only levied against homes being used for controlled substances because of the associated safety and health issues. The municipality has hired a public relations company to help bring the message to the community. Team members also need to do a better job of contacting someone in the house instead of posting a notice on the front door for the whole neighbourhood to see. A review process is also proposed in the report. “It’s something we haven’t done before,” said Gipps, noting if the property inspection and outcome are not satisfactory, homeowners can ask for an administrative review, not performed by the inspectors. A assessment into the controversial program began Jan. 24 when council deferred all PSIT-led home inspections. The report was released last Friday and the district wants public input before April 11 when staff will begin preparing the next steps for council’s consideration. A full copy of the review is available on the district’s website at www. mission.ca.

Input sought on district amenities BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Mission has lagged in providing facilities for its growing population, but not everyone agrees how

and when such projects should happen. Community amenities are assets which make a city a more enjoyable place to live, such as trails and parks, leisure

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE Application for a Permit Under The Provisions of the Environmental Management Act We, Ventus Consulting Inc. / Joe Davis at 406 – 2490 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver, B.C. V6K 1J6, intend to submit this application to the Director to authorize the discharge of air emissions from a Vapour Extraction System treating subsurface vapours. The land upon which the facility will be situated and the discharge will occur is legally described as Lot 2, District Lot 165, Group 3, New Westminster District, Plan LMP45775, located at 32530 Lougheed Highway, within Mission, B.C., V2V 1A5. The maximum rate of air emissions from this Vapour Extraction System will be 6.8 cubic metres per minute of air, which has a maximum concentration of 105 ug/ m3 total VOCs. The operating period for this facility will be 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The characteristics of the air emissions are as follows: Tetrachloroethene at 100 ug/m3 maximum and 50ug/ m3 average, Trichloroethene at 2 ug/m3 maximum and 1 ug/m3 average, cis-1,2 Dichloroethene at 1 ug/m3 maximum and 0.5 ug/m3 average, trans-1,2, Dichloroethene at 1 ug/m3 maximum and 0.5 ug/m3 average and Vinyl chloride at 1 ug/m3 maximum and 0.5 ug/m3 average. The total air emissions will be about 0.1875 kg (or 0.0001875 tonnes) per year of total VOCs only. The type of treatment to be applied to the discharge is passage of the air stream through a series of two carbon filters and discharge of the air 6 metres above the ground surface. Any person who may be adversely affected by the proposed air emission of waste and wishes to provide relevant information may, within 30 days after the last date of posting, publishing, service or display, send written comments to the applicant, with a copy to: Manager, Land Remediation Section 2975 Jutland Road, PO Box 9342 Stn Prov Govt, Victoria, BC, V8W 9M1 The identity of any respondents and the contents of anything submitted in relation to this application will become part of the public record.

centres, libraries and police stations. District staff presented two lists to the public at an information and input meeting last Thursday night at the Leisure Centre. The suggestions on list A are considered high priority by council, said Sharon Fletcher, Mission’s director of planning. The ones on list B are still important, but will only be considered when funds become available or when there is a need identified. Item on list A and the estimated costs are: • skateboard park, $71,500 • new park amenities, $2,145,000 • transit exchange, $1,200,000 • public works building expansion, $8,000,000 • new sports park, phase 1 - $4,600,000, phase 2 - $2,722,000 • arts centre, senior centre, youth centre, each $2,975,000 • museum, $1,700,000 • municipal hall, $17,675,000 • multi-purpose space, $1,700,000 • upgrade Rotary Sports Park, $2,800,000 • new police building, $19,000,000 Items on list B and the estimated costs are: • dike trails and related signage, $7,650,000 • district-wide trail system, $900,600 • pool addition, $15,000,000 • new leisure complex, $30,000,000 • new sports park (phase 3), $4,000,000 • community announcement board, $120,000 Developers are expected to pay for most of the

costs through a community amenity contribution, volunteered when the property is rezoned. If the fee is not offered, the rezoning could be denied because the financial burden on current taxpayers would be too great. Developers provide most of the funding because development brings growth and strains current facilities, explained Fletcher, who noted the list can be changed and council will review the projects regularly. Currently a fee of $2,815 is collected for each new residential lot or housing unit, but that cost is expected to increase to $6,200 based on list A. Judith Ray told council it’s not fair for developers to bear most of the cost because current taxpayers will enjoy the facilities too. Taxpayers still have to pay and major projects should go to a referendum, she suggested. Shelley Clarkson suggested a permanent soapbox derby track should be on the list and a couple of seniors stated a seniors centre is needed soon. Genstar vice-president Blake Hudema questioned whether Mission would be making it too expensive for builders to do business in the community. He noted the industry is weak now and is trying to get re-established. If costs keep mounting, the value of the land will be reduced, he added. Details of the proposed 30-year Community Amenity Program are available at www.mission.ca. The district is accepting input until March 11.

Mission Speirs gets NDP nod boater rescued BY PHIL MELNYCHUK Black Press

Entangled in an old fishing net, a boater reported missing last Thursday on the Fraser River was rescued later that day by the Chilliwack Search and Rescue Team and RCMP. “The boater was uninjured, but was very cold and wet,” Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. The Mission man was reported missing by his family at about 7:35 p.m. after he failed to return to a meeting point west on Old Orchard Road, where he had launched the small aluminum boat at about 4:30 p.m. Police said the boater had fishing gear and clothing designed for cold weather, however, he did not have oars, a cell phone or other survival equipment. The Chilliwack SAR team was called, as well as the RCMP helicopter Air 1, because of the growing darkness and low visibility. The helicopter located the boat about two kilometres west of the Old Orchard boat launch, and about 40 feet from shore. The SAR team took the boater to a waiting ambulance where he was treated for cold weather exposure, and released to relieved family members. “RCMP members at the scene were able to determine the boat motor had got stuck in an old fishing net, which immobilized the boat,” Hollingsworth said.

Maple Ridge Coun. Craig Speirs will be trying to go from the local stage to the national one after winning the NDP nomination Sunday. Speirs was competing against pharmacist Elizabeth Rosenau for the right to represent the party in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission. If an election is called, Speirs will be taking on Conservative MP Randy Kamp. The nomination meeting took place in St. Andrew’s United Church, in Maple Ridge. “Had a great meeting today and somehow or another I became the candidate for Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission.

OPINION

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

Tweet starts panic A man sends a Twitter message in Cairo and now we’re paying around $1.26 for a litre of regular gas. The current tumult in the Middle East, sparked by the so-called Twitter Revolution in Egypt, is prompting fear-mongering by commodities speculators and boosting the bank accounts of major oil companies. Egypt is a middle-of-the-pack supplier of the world’s oil. Its daily production of about 680,000 barrels ranks it 29th amongst oil producers. That’s 11 spots below Libya, but eight higher than Yemen, 25 higher than Tunisia and 44 higher than Bahrain, the other countries where citizens, emboldened by the successful occupation of Tahrir Square, have been marching against the status quo. Combined, they produce less oil per day than Canada, ranked sixth at 3,289,000 barrels, and less than a third of the daily oil production of the United States. In fact, the U.S., the world’s biggest consumer of oil, gets less than 20 per cent of its imported supply from the Middle East. Some key delivery points have more oil than capacity to move it. Refineries have cut back operations because of the oil glut. But never let reality get in the way of a good old speculative panic. Some analysts say if the current Middle East unrest continues, or spreads to more countries, the price of a barrel of oil could reach new heights, surpassing the records set three years ago, the last time we were paying this much at the pump. As gas goes up, so goes the price of food and everything else we consume that gets to us by truck, train, plane, or is manufactured with plastic. It’s almost enough to make you want to curl up in a corner with the lights off, Twittering on your iPhone. —Burnaby News Leader

Enrich the poverty debate A

couple of readers responded indignantly to this column’s recent reference to the NDP “trumpeting distorted statistics” about child poverty. I was referring to the annual ritual that goes on here at the legislature, where an activist coalition named First Call issues its report that damns B.C. for the worst child poverty in Canada. The “distorted statistics” I referred to are in a regular survey by Statistics Canada called the Low Income Cutoff, or LICO. This survey uses an arbitrary line, currently around $44,000 a year for a family of four, beneath which people are deemed to have “low income.” StatsCan points out in every LICO report that it is a relative measure and not a poverty line, but the activists ignore that. West Vancouver-Capilano B.C. Liberal MLA Ralph Sultan, a former bank economist, has taken on this issue. In November he published a math-heavy discussion paper called Child Poverty in West Vancouver: Fact or Fiction? When I spoke to Sultan

last week, he said the weakness of LICO is easy to demonstrate. For one thing, StatsCan uses the same income level across Canada, without regard to the huge variations in cost of housing or other factors. The LICO ignores provincial services such as dental care for social assistance clients, because it’s not income. Sultan estimates that about 10 per cent of the B.C. budget To is now spent on low-income supports, including rent subsidies. Not surprisingly, Sultan found that low income correlates mainly with single mothers, immigrants and aboriginal people on reserves. More surprising is that communities with higher levels of Employment Insurance and welfare recipients are not the communities with the most low-income people. Sultan says this suggests these programs are effective.

Another surprise is that aboriginal people do just as well as other people once they are off reserve, despite the relatively low educational achievement we hear so much about. Sultan, who taught business at Harvard University for nine years, cites a recent book by Harvard historian Niall Ferguson called Civilization: The West and the Rest. Ferguson identifies six ingredients in what he calls m “the secret sauce of Western civilization” and its economic success. They are competition, modern science, the rule of law and private property rights, modern medicine, the consumer society and the work ethic. Sultan says that list explains the difference between conditions on and off B.C. reserves. Sultan agrees that the political pressure to raise the minimum wage is irreversible. But like most

Share a little magic with a young person

Clark should encourage some MLAs not to run for re-election Editor, The Record: If I hadn’t been turned hostile towards the provincial Liberals under Gordon Campbell, I might have shown more interested in the outcome of the recent leadership contest for the new premier. I would have favoured George Abbott. Kevin Falcon announcing himself as being in the Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher fan club made him an absolute pariah for what a liberal democracy should stand. Christy Clark at least has been out of government long enough not to have been tarred and feathered as all the Campbell loyalists have been in their blind support for his Harper-like vision for our province. BC Rail will, however, cast a long shadow in future elections so I hope she’ll take the initiative and repudiate the stone-walling that her now predecessor took.

Clark also needs to pull the party back towards the centre of the spectrum as the coalition is Liberal in name only. Her confrontational style will be well-suited to not playing lap dog to Ottawa as her predecessor has done. She can start with saying no to the lifting of the ban for off-shore oil. And take that bloody welcome mat for the Fraser Institute away from the door of the premier’s office. That conservative un-thinking tank, plus that hideous plywoodlooking desk Gordon was given, should be sent packing along with his other political baggage such as the ill-conceived native reconciliation process. Don’t just shift the deck chairs on the Titanic but actively “encourage” many current members of the legislature to pack their bags and not run for re-election. She

could do far worse than to start with telling our own MLA to pack his gravel trucks and find another sand box in which to play. We need to return people to full-time employment. If your push for new jobs just means more of the kind that Campbell and the Fraser Institute wanted for our province, then you don’t get my vote. Think of Ireland that had the lowest corporate tax rates in Europe and see how it bankrupted that country. In a sense, my vision for the future is a partial return to the days of old Wacky Bennett when business paid its share and residents contributed through a far more progressive system than the one we have now of corporate welfare and undemocratic elitists. But that is for another letter. Robert T. Rock Mission

Bills may die on order paper Editor, The Record: The government of the day, through the Minister of Veterans Affairs, has made several announcements and promises on Bill C-55 (New Veterans Charter), which has received first reading in the House of Commons but has not progressed to the Committee level. Similar announcements and promises have been made on Bill-480 by the Minister of Finance (Removal of GST from poppies and wreath purchases) for which no legislation has yet been tabled. As your readers know, the tabling and passage of these bills with Royal Assent will not be possible

should the government decide to call an election. The Royal Canadian Legion has written to both ministers on the matters of legislative procedure and has received assurances these matters are being looked into. These bills, however, may die on the order paper if an election is called and leave Canada’s disabled veterans, their families and The Royal Canadian Legion without the legislation they all need.

Elections BC accepts recall application for MLA Marc Dalton BY PHIL MELNYCHUK Black Press

The formal process to yank Marc Dalton out of the legislature has begun now that Elections BC has accepted

the recall application for Maple Ridge-Mission. Organizers have until May 9 to collect 14,000 names required to force a byelection. Liberal MLA Dalton won his riding by

the slimmest margin in B.C., only 68 votes, in the 2009 election. The start date for collecting the signatures, using names on the last voting list, is March 10.

Maple Ridge’s Wilfred McIntyre filed the application, saying Dalton “supported the deceptive introduction of the Harmonized Sales Tax and refuses to represent the clear wishes

of his constituents in the legislative assembly.” The application says that during the 2009 election, the premier and finance minister said the HST was not on

their agenda. Only 72 days later, the government implemented the tax by cabinet order. “Maple Ridge-Mission voters deserve honesty and accountability from elected

representatives. A successful recall unequivocally tells this, and future governments, that they must openly and fairly represent those who elected them,” the application says.

Grow op robbed As police were investigating an attempted break and enter at a licensed medicinal marijuana grow operation around 3:10 a.m., March 8, they came across a suspicious vehicle backing into a residence in the 14200 block of Kontney Road, followed by four masked males fleeing, and escaping police. When Mounties entered the home to check on the occupants’ wellbeing, they found a 62-year-old resident and a marijuana grow operation. The uninjured man told police he was robbed by a masked individual. Police returned to the property later in the day with a search warrant for the grow op and are continuing to investigate. The two break-ins have not been linked, said RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson.

Ruskin fish ladder proposal dismissed BY PHIL MELNYCHUK Black Press

BC Hydro’s recently announced rebuild of Ruskin Dam will boost generating capacity, make it safer in an earthquake and cost $800 million. So why not add a fish ladder in the process and allow salmon to get into the reservoir beyond and eventually Stave Lake, where they could multiply and rebuild stocks? In the late 1990s, BC Hydro said it would, providing it could be proven that the Stave actually had sockeye, says east Maple Ridge resident Barry Radelet. That proof came when a colleague found a sockeye skeleton when the lake level was lowered, he says. So will BC Hydro now honour its commitment and put in the ladder, Radelet is asking. The prospect, though, has been raised before — and dismissed — after debate and research. Geoff Clayton, with the Alouette River Management Society, said connecting the Lower Stave River at the Maple Ridge-Mission border to the Ruskin reservoir, then to the Stave reservoir was checked over carefully in the late 1990s. The question was researched as part of the water-use plan being developed for the area by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, BC Hydro, Kwantlen First Nation, the provincial government, as well as conservation groups. Clayton said consultant Dr. John Stockner even took core samples of the bottom of Stave Lake to see if traces of carbon and nitrogen from Pacific salmon were present. If they were, it would have indicated the presence of sockeye before the dam was built. However,

Ruskin dam upgrades will cost approximately $800 million. FILE PHOTO

none was found. The research also concluded that Stave Falls, about eight metres high, formed a natural obstacle that fish couldn’t pass in order to get into the reservoir. “So there’s no way that we can conceive of fish getting up there,” Clayton said. A fish ladder for the Ruskin Dam downstream of the Stave Falls Dam was also considered, but the size of the Hayward Lake Reservoir and lack of streams feeding it didn’t make it strong candidate. Instead, efforts were focused on building side channels and spawning habitat for the Lower Stave River, basically from the Lougheed Highway to the base of Ruskin Dam. “It has proved very, very valuable,” Clayton said. That small section of river now hosts a run of 250,000 chum salmon, which anglers snag from the shoreline every fall. Sports fishermen also take steelhead, cutthroat and coho salmon as they make their way up the river. While it may seem like a short stretch of river, the Lower Stave has three times the aquatic habitat of the South Alouette River and seven times the water volume, Clayton pointed out.

Plenty of violators caught in distracted driving blitz

People travel for our designs.

BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Police nabbed more than 3,000 drivers using cellphones and other handheld electronic devices during a month-long distracted driving enforcement blitz in February. Officers heard plenty of excuses – none of them good ones. “I was just on my way to buy a Bluetooth [hands-free kit],” one driver said. Another was afraid of missing an important call and one woman told police she was “just telling my husband to call back later because I’m driving.” In Mission, 264 charges were leveled during the campaign, while the Fraser Valley Integrated Road Safety Unit wrote up 348. RCMP E Division Traffic Services Supt. Mike Diack said it’s disappointing to see such a high number of motorists violating B.C.’s year-old distracted driving law. “The excuses won’t mean anything if you are involved in a collision that seriously injures or kills somebody because you made a phone call or sent a text

message,” he said. The only valid reason for making a handheld call is to call for emergency assistance, he said. More than 2,200 of the distracted drivers were busted and given $167 fines in the Lower Mainland and the stats don’t count drivers caught by general duty officers who weren’t part of the blitz. Despite the new law, RCMP say distracted driving was a contributing factor in 104 fatal crashes in B.C. last year and is blamed in another 5,000 injuries each year. Forty-five of the deaths linked to inattentive or distracted driving happened in the Lower Mainland, while 30 were in southeastern B.C, 15 were in the north and 14 were on Vancouver Island. Besides the $167 fine for handheld use of an electronic device while driving, violators can also be given three ICBC driver penalty points if they’re caught texting or emailing. Drivers in the Graduated Licensing Program are banned from using all electronic devices, even with handsfree options.

The gains made in paying back Canada’s national debt between 1997 and 2008 will be wiped out by March, according to Canadian Taxpayers Federation’s B.C. director Gregory Thomas. Every Canadian citizen, including children, owes an average $16,500 share of the federal debt, which continues to grow at $124 million every day. And it’s not much better on the provincial level, where each man, woman and child owes an average $10,000 share of that debt. Currently the federal government is paying out $93 million a day in interest, and the B.C. government will pay out $2.12 billion in interest on the provincial debt in the coming year. This stark reality is what motivated the CTF to restore a large aluminum clock that displays both the per second increase in the national debt and the per-person share of this debt. The clock has been mounted inside a trailer and is taking the message across Canada. The numbers spin by at a dizzying pace on the Debt Clock, demonstrating graphically the enormity of the national debt. The clock can also be calibrated to demonstrate provincial debt and this will be done at stops in each of the nine provinces it will visit before the tour winds up at the end of March in Halifax. “We want to see leadership across the political spectrum to stand up and commit to addressing the serious issue that is our provincial debt,” said Thomas. “Leadership is about making tough choices and the longer we wait to address the problem, the choices get even tougher.” DebtClockTour.ca includes an interactive map of the clock’s travels with daily postings, ways to contact lawmakers, a petition, and a debt clock widget that can be downloaded to a website or handheld device. Comments can be posted on the CTF’s campaign page as well as their Facebook page (TaxpayerDOTcom) or through the Twitter hash tag (#debtclock). The public is also invited to text “debtclock” to 70259 for campaign updates and interaction directly to their handheld devices.

Mildred Vollick received the Special Heritage Achievement Award for her dedication to preserving local history last week. Vollick, a third generation member of a pioneer family, was born in Mission in October 1925. She earned a degree from UBC in 1943 and spent most of her young adult life teaching home economics in Ontario. She moved back to Mission in 1982 and became a busy volunteer in the community. Her work included the Canadian Red Cross and Pleasant View Care Home. For eight years, she also wrote a column in the local newspaper called Pantry Prose, providing recipes and advice on healthy eating. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Vollick also joined the Mission District Historical Society (MDHS) and started a school program which brought history into the classroom. She visited schools dressed in period costumes and brought interesting objects to show students and engage them in discussions about local history. Using her knowledge of the past, she has also done many public presentations. In 1984, Vollick was elected to the MDHS board and has held a position, including president, ever since. Vollick has spearheaded many initiatives within the society, including the establishment of a society budget and the Archives Advisory Committee that drafts guidelines for proper administration and care for archival material. She also helped set up the first Community Heritage Register to identify local landmarks. Vollick is still involved with the society and was awarded a lifetime membership in 2003.

A fire safety guide for your babysitters As the babysitter, you are responsible for the children in your care. Here are some important points you need to know if there’s a fire emergency in the home where you babysit. Before the parents leave: Write down the complete address and phone number of the place where you are babysitting and phone numbers for: • Fire, police, ambulance and emergency services – often one number 9-1-1. • Where the parents can be reached. • Neighbours. Keep this information in your pocket so that it’s with you at all times and handy in case of an emergency. Plan your escape If there is a fire while you are in charge, you must know what to do: • Is there a fire escape plan? If not, develop one. • Identify all escape routes. • Find at least two ways out of each room. • Plan how you and the children will escape safely.

Never use water. • Make sure you know what cooking materials can be used for the microwave. Burn prevention Always test hot foods and liquids before feeding. Fire safety: What to do, because fire spreads fast – don’t delay! • If your clothes catch fire, stop, drop and roll on the floor to smother the flames. • Cool minor burns with cold water. If your skin is blistered, charred or dead white, get emergency help immediately.

• When you see flames, smell smoke or hear the smoke alarm, get everybody out of the house. • Feel the door first. If it isn’t hot, open it very slowly. • If there is fire or smoke use another exit. • Crawl low under smoke – the air near the floor is safer to breathe. • If you cannot escape, close the door and seal around it with cloth to prevent smoke from entering the room. • Always use the stairs and never the elevators. • Designate a meeting place a safe distance from the house and make sure everyone is there. • Take the children to a neighbour. • Phone the emergency number from the neighbour’s home. • Give the complete address, describe the situation and inform the operator if anyone is still inside. • Stay on the phone until you are told to hang up. • Do not go back to the house.

Spring burning is only permitted in rural areas Recycle and compost when possible Now that spring is on the way, many people are anxious to do some yard cleanup of branches, twigs and tree prunings, and burn the debris.

Reducing federal red tape

O

n Jan. 25, Prime Minister Stephen Harper declared 2011 the “Year of the Entrepreneur.” In the press release it was noted, “Canada’s entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy, creating jobs and driving economic growth in communities large and small across our country.” So the question will be how the federal government will support entrepreneurs in creating opportunities and reducing taxation so they can continue to drive the economy. As a pre-cursor to this, on Jan. 11 the Prime Minister with Minister in State (Small Business and Tourism) Rob Moore launched the Federal Red Tape Reduction Commission. The commission has been conducting roundtables with small business as well as offering an online channel for individuals to report how red tape affects their small business. Responses to date range from the language used by CRA on forms and the many levels of federal taxation, to the need for a responsive

bureaucracy regarding communications. As well, it was noted that there is a lack of use of technology to satisfy government requirements in addition to the endless submission of forms for importing and licensing. So how does the government plan to reduce red tape? The commission is to report back to Parliament this fall. There is still time to submit input on how federal red tape inhibits your ability to do business online. Go to www.reduceredtape. gc.ca. With an election in the air at the end of this month, it will be interesting to see if the federal parties listen to the voice of small business. With 98 per cent of all private enterprise in Canada having less than 100 employees, entrepreneurs have a unique role to play in propelling a new generation of economic growth. While Harper encourages Canadians to participate in activities taking place this year to support local entrepreneurs and to thank

them for contributing to the quality of life we all enjoy, the question will be, how the government intends to do this. What a great time to advocate for business; when politicians are listening and looking to create policy from their platforms. With elections inevitable this year, become invested in the Chamber movement so we may better advocate for you, our members. On March 17, the monthly chamber luncheon will be the inauguration the newly elected board of directors. We will also be holding a live member forum. The board invites members to come let them know what issues the chamber should advocate for over the next year. Come participate in setting the direction for the board of the chamber. Background information can be found at www.MissionChamber. bc.ca along with forms to pose questions to the board. Also login and post your questions in the online member forum under executive and staff.

After 35 years of growing strawberries, Roy retired and converted the farm to a horse stable, which they sold in 2005. He and his wife moved to a retirement home in Gibsons. The original farm property was developed by Brian Sharp, and is now home to hundreds of families.

ong before marketers determined the need for branding, Mission was known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;home of the great big strawberry,â&#x20AC;? and an annual Strawberry Festival celebrated the many farmers and producers. The southwardfacing slopes and many sources of water made the area ideal for growing, and the network of railways â&#x20AC;&#x201D; west into the Lower Mainland, east to the Prairie provinces, and south to the United States â&#x20AC;&#x201D; meant berries could be delivered at their peak. At times during the season, trains would stop for two hours while berries were being weighed and loaded. Local people also enjoyed the abundant crops â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and none were better than the big, juicy berries produced on the Bailey Farm in the Cedar Valley area, north of Cherry Street. A park in the newly developed subdivision Bailey Place (near Fairbanks Street, south of Egglestone) is named after Roy Bailey who farmed in the area for 35 years. Roy was born in England in 1924 and attended boarding school there. As soon as he was of age, he joined the Royal Air Force, served as tail gunner in the Second World War and was involved in many dangerous night raids over Germany. Following the war,

Pearce earns athletic scholarship with Clan BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Tanner Pearce is SFU-bound. The Mission Secondary School quarterback led the senior varsity team strongly this past season and has accepted and signed on the dotted line for an athletic scholarship to the Burnaby-based university. Despite getting some interest from American universities and UBC, he decided to throw his lot in with the Clan, and will be playing a combination outside linebacker/safety role. “My cousin Tom played there and I have friends who play there now,” along with the respect and admiration for Clan coach David Johnson, said Pearce, 17, as he explained his choice.

The school switched from CIS into Division 2 NCAA last year, which framed another reason why the talented multi-sport athlete wanted to play for Simon Fraser. “[The Clan] tied with some of the top teams in the division,” said Pearce, including powerhouses from the United States. And it’s the opportunity to play game against American counterparts that excites the MSS senior. “The level of competition is so much greater and [Americans] seem to take it more seriously,” he said. Depending on his abilities and performance, Pearce may start, however, it’s more likely he’ll stay red-shirted, meaning he’ll practise with the team and dress for games,

which still keep him eligible. Pearce aims to tailor his education towards an after-football future in architecture. MSS football coach Kevin Watrin was pleased to see his team leader offered a scholarship. “I’m proud of Tanner. He worked really hard the last number of years,” he said. “He is talented — he was the AA player of the year — and he does put in the work.” Watrin is satisfied others see Pearce’s potential too. “He’s mentally very tough and he’s really good at making plays out of nothing. His athleticism and intelligence and understanding of the game contribute to his performance,” he said. “He’s someone you can count on for years to come.”

The Mission Icebreakers took the Abbotsford Pilots to game six of the best-of-seven series, but lost 4-0 in the final game. The Pilots won the series 4-2. BOB FRIESEN PHOTO

Icebreakers season over BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

The Mission Icebreakers’ inability to capitalize on the power play led the junior B hockey team to lose game six 4-0 of the bestof-seven series against cross-river rivals the Abbotsford Pilots. The Icebreakers pushed the Pilots at every turn and managed to battle back midway through the series to make their opponents fight hard for every point. “It was a good series,” said Icebreakers’ coach Craig Sherbaty. “Our power play did really well the first two game, but in game six it just felt like nothing was clicking.” The Feb. 24 game at the Mission

Leisure Centre saw the Icebreakers get scored on early and continue to be dominated by Abbotsford. Mission had a five-minute man advantage and the Pilots wound up scoring, said Sherbaty.

“That set the tone for the whole game.” Pilots head coach Jim Cowden called the Icebreakers a “pesky” foe, and hoped the series would serve as a learning experience for his team. “They battled us hard, and it could have gone either way,” he said. Sherbaty said he’s proud of his team and how they put the group ahead of individual performance, all while playing solidly in front of large home crowds at the Leisure Centre. “I really think the team this year was really competitive against all the others. We were right there,” he said.

Steelhead a sub-species of rainbow

I

have always believed and taught in my classes that steelhead are nothing more than a sea-going sub-species of rainbow trout. I also say that it is not the craftiness of this fish that makes them so challenging but more the external factors that regulate their feeding activity. Recently, a study done by Mark Christie of Oregon State University has confirmed my beliefs. One of the more useful bits of knowledge gleaned from this study is the interdependence between these sea-going giants and resident fresh water relatives. Fifteen years of analyzing 12,725 of these giants has shown that 40 per cent of their DNA is from wild resident rainbow trout and not other steelhead. Co-author of this study Michael Blouin, professor of zoology at Oregon State,

commented: “One implication of this study is that the genetic contribution by wild trout is diluting the input of genes from hatchery fish to wild steelhead.” Once again we can see that fish know what they are doing and that we could learn a thing or two Je from them; provided we are humble enough to be taught.

FVRL campaign highlights benefits of adult literacy Did you know that 40 per cent of B.C. adults lack the reading and writing skills needed to thrive in today’s knowledge-based society? Fraser Valley Regional Library (FVRL) is campaigning to raise public awareness about the importance of

adult literacy. The campaign slogan, Read for Life, underlines the fact that literacy touches everything. “Read for Life captures FVRL’s commitment to working with community partners to promote literacy skills and

engage with adult learners,” says Kim Davison, literacy coordinator. “We want to get the word out that FVRL is here to help. Our friendly library staff is eager to connect adult learners with free learning materials and referrals to literacy tutoring programs.”

FVRL has produced a short film about adult literacy which includes interviews with adult learners who have discovered the library as the place to start improving their reading and writing skills. The video can be viewed on FVRL’s YouTube channel.

The Arrogant Worms have been making audiences laugh for 20 years with their humour and songs about every day life in Canada. To commemorate the milestone, the trio is taking their show on the road this month and will be returning to Mission March 14. The Worms have performed at the Clarke Theatre five times before, said Chris Patterson from Manitoba

last Thursday, where the they kicked off the celebration. The Arrogant Worms is a threeman band made up of Patterson, Mike McCormick, and Trevor Strong. After being in Winnipeg for just a few hours, Patterson was quickly coming up with material for a new song when he realized he left his toque and mitts inside a cab. Who forgets to put these vital items inside their bag in Winnipeg, he asked. Making his way through the maze of underground corridors, Patterson promptly began searching for a warm hat. He wasn’t looking for anything fancy, just something to keep him from being frostbitten. He didn’t expect it to be a difficult task, but after 20 minutes of searching, the top of his head and hands

were still bare. Fortunately Patterson has a good sense of humour and continued on with his task while thinking about the month-long celebration ahead. He looked forward to performing for fans and playing songs they want to hear. Each show will be different as the Arrogant Worms are taking requests through Facebook and will be playing as many as possible every night. So far the most requested tune is Me Like Hockey. It’s mostly a grunting number from 1997, but it’s silly and it makes people laugh. It’s also one the Ontario band has to rewrite every few years to include recent players, said Patterson. There are lots of songs to choose from in the band’s 12 albums, and there are a lot of memories to share

over the past 20 years. For Patterson, some of his career highlights are performing with symphony orchestras, on parliament hill, hearing one of their songs played on the space shuttle and jamming at a wedding in the Grand Canyon. While reminiscing, Patterson also notes the Arrogant Worms are excited to return to Mission. “It’s nice to celebrate in a town that’s been so good to us,” he said. Tickets to the Arrogant Worms show at the Clarke Theatre on March 14 are now on sale at all Ticketmaster locations or online at www. ticketmaster.ca. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. For more information about the Worms, visit www.arrogantworms. com.

the season finale for this year’s concert series. Concert will being at 7:55 p.m., pre-concert chat takes place at 7 p.m. Tickets are $28 each and available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue or the Clarke Theatre box office. For more info call 604820-3961.

Classical Mission finale begins 5 to 8 The season finale for this year’s Classical Mission concert series takes place at the Clarke Theatre on Thursday, March 17 at 7:55 p.m. “That’s because the concert is called 5 to 8,” explains artistic director Graham Yates. “It’s a specially created concert of woodwind chamber music featuring a quintet, a sextet, a septet and an octet – works

for five, six, seven and eight players.” The evening concludes with Mozart’s glorious Serenade K. 388, one of the most significant works for wind ensemble ever created. Assembled uniquely for Mission by Canadian impresario, officer of the Order of Canada, and bassoon soloist, George Zukerman,

performers also include the Ad Mare Wind Quintet, Vancouver Symphony principals Roger Cole (oboe) and Cris Inguanti (clarinet), and Vancouver Opera horn player Steve Denroche. March 17 is the premiere performance of this particular wind ensemble. “We think there will be interest in this program in many other B.C. commu-

nities in coming seasons,” said Zukerman. “It’s chamber music-by-number (referring to 5 to 8) and it’s a brand new format to present some very unusual wind repertoire.” In addition to Mozart, the “unusual” repertoire includes works by Paul Hindemith, Vincent d’Indy and Carl Maria von Weber. Audience members can

also look forward to the preconcert chat with Graham Yates at 7 p.m. and a reception, sponsored by Prospera Credit Union, following the concert. Both events are free to all ticket holders. Tickets are $28 each and available from Murdoch’s Booke Shoppe on First Avenue or by calling the Clarke Theatre box office at 604820-3961.

What’s Happening in Mission

LEARNING TO SOW GOOD SEEDS Just as farmers’ will sow seeds in order to raise their crops, those who follow God’s ways are sowing seeds of our Lord’s love. In the Bible, we are told the Parable of the Sower, who scattered his seeds in the field: some seeds fell along the path and the birds ate them; some fell on rocky ground where there was little soil; and, some fell among the thorn bushes, which grew up and choked the plants. But still, some seeds fell upon good soil, and these plants sprouted and bore much grain. Our Lord explains this Parable by saying that some people hear the message and disregard it, while other’s receive the message, but when trouble and persecution comes they simply give up. Still, there are others who hear the message, but the worries and concerns about this life choke out the good news. And then, there are those who hear the message, accept it, and bear much fruit. The way we live our lives should be an example for those around us, and we should try to reflect the love and compassion of our Heavenly Father. Nurturing and improving our relationship with God, and living our lives in a way that is pleasing to Him, will help us to sow seeds that bear good fruit. You did not choose me; I chose you and appointed you to go and bear much fruit, the kind of fruit that endures. Good News Bible John 15:16

VANDERVELDEN Peter Vandervelden late of Abbotsford, BC passed away on March 5, 2011. Today we celebrate a life well lived. The life of a man who chose not to be known for his occupation and accomplishments, but rather his joy for life and the family he shared it with. Peter was born June 19, 1930 in Rotterdam, Holland to Hendrik & Cornelia Vandervelden and was the second of four children. It was 1948 when Peter first came to Canada and came to settle in the Fraser Valley. In 1956 Peter married Joanne and began his family of 5 children; Henry (Carolyn), Richard (Margo), Colleen (Norman), Irene (John) and Peter (Rebekah). In 1981 Joanne succumbed to leukemia. In 1982 Peter married Stephanie and became the stepfather to a blended family; Alida (Bruce), Gordon (Betty), Herman (Renita), David (Deanna), Raymond (Renee) and Keith (Teresa). Peter leaves behind 43 grandchildren, 15 greatgrandchildren and was predeceased by Aidyn Joelle, his great-granddaughter. Peter was known for his love of God and his family. His deep faith, generosity and passion for life are some of the many things he will be remembered for. To those who were blessed to have known him, he will be dearly missed and fondly remembered. Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of the Life of Peter Vandervelden. The service will be held at Living Hope Christian Reformed Church, 34631 Old Clayburn Road, on Friday, March 11, 2011 at 2:00 pm.

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our much loved wife, mother and grandmother. Lorna Adair passed away at Mission Hospice on Saturday March 5th at the age of 79 following a courageous battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed by her husband of 57 years Douglas, sons Bruce (Patricia), Ian (Thipp), David (Brenda), Robin (Marisa) and grandchildren Amy (Matt), Tristan, Bryan, Megan, Justine and Rachel. She will also be missed by her sister Betty Moyls of Victoria as well as her many relatives and friends. Lorna was born in North Battleford Saskatchewan and moved to Vancouver in 1938 where as a young girl she worked in her Scottish father’s grocery store on Main Street and attended Sir John Oliver High School. She graduated as an RN from St. Paul’s Hospital and while nursing in Williams Lake she met her future husband Doug who was working at the local bank. The couple moved to Mission in 1954 where they raised 4 children as well as two Fearn cousins, Jim (Syvil) and Joan (Barry Jones). Lorna was always community minded. She was at various times the Chair of the Mission Parks and Recreation Commission and Chair of the Mission Arts Council. Lorna loved competition and was an enthusiastic golfer, curler and bridge player which gave her an excellent opportunity to laugh and play with her wide circle of friends. As members of Rotary Lorna and Doug sponsored two international exchange students to live with their family for a year at a time. They greatly enjoyed Jen (from Australia) and Kristian (from Denmark) and have kept in close contact with them and their families through the years. A strong member of St. Andrews United Church, Lorna travelled overseas with Doug (1986-1989) and spent three years in Papua New Guinea nursing and teaching in a church missionary hospital and learning to speak the local dialect. The couple returned to BC from overseas and while Doug served two terms on Mission Council Lorna continued her many volunteer activities. Lorna served on the board of Pleasant View Care Home and as a volunteer at the Mission Hospice and the Mennonite MCC Thrift store. In 1999 Lorna and Doug Adair were awarded the distinction of Freedom of the City for their outstanding contribution to their community. The family would like to thank the staff at the Mission Hospice for their care and compassion. A celebration of Lorna Adair’s life will be held at Cedar Valley Mennonite Church, 32840 Janzen ave Mission at 1:30 pm on Thursday March 17th. Flowers are gratefully declined in lieu of donations to the Christine Morrison Hospice. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at www.woodlawnfh-mission.com Arrangements entrusted to Woodlawn Mission Funeral Home (604) 826-9548
