Former Mission Mountie docked one day’s pay Officer also given letter of reprimand BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

A former Mission Mountie has been given a written reprimand and docked one day’s pay for failing to properly investigate a shots fired call more than two years ago which left Lisa Dudley clinging to life inside her Greenwood Drive home while her boyfriend, Guthrie McKay, lay dead in the same house. “That’s all her life was worth,” said Dudley’s mom Rosemarie Surakka. It was hard for the Dudley’s family to remain silent during the code of conduct hearing last Friday, but protocol had to be respected, according to Dudley’s stepdad Mark Surakka, who was disappointed with the outcome. The adjudication board heard an agreed statement of facts before making a ruling, however, Mark points out a number of key issues were omitted. White responded to a shots fired complaint on Sept. 18, 2008, but he neglected to properly investigate the neighbourhood when he arrived or speak with the caller. He left the scene after only being there for about 10 minutes and didn’t follow up the next day. “911 is a lifeline to people,” said Mark. “That was Lisa’s and it was neglected.”

Two RCMP reviews were conducted, but w iit was civilian investtigators from the Albberta Serious Incident Response Team who R uuncovered an audio Dudley recording of White laughing with a dispatcher about the call before he attended. Had the board been presented with that on Friday, the Surakkas believe White’s punishment would have been different. According to a report from the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, White had already predetermined the validity of the shots fired call before he even attended the neighbourhood. A neighbour found Dudley four days later, but she died from her injuries en route to hospital. Since then, Dudley’s parents have been fighting for answers and systematic changes. As a result, the RCMP has adopted a policy to treat shots fired calls as a priority and attending officers must contact the caller. Also, B.C.’s new Solicitor General Shirley Bond announced this week police will no longer be investigating police. Instead, a civilian unit will be established by the end of the year to probe cases involving serious injury or death. But the fight still isn’t over for the Surakkas, who are still waiting for a coroner’s inquest. - with files from CTV

Scoping the supermoon The “supermoon” was photographed at perigee over the Mission harbour on Saturday night. The Earth’s closest celestial neighbour appeared brighter and larger than normal as it reached its closest point to this planet. Lunar perigees were previously seen in 1955, 1974, 1992, 1993 and 2005, but this year’s is unique because it occurred during a full moon. BOB FRIESEN PHOTO

Stabbing leads to lockdown Mission Institution is locked down following an inmate assault. At approximately 8:25 a.m. March 21, one inmate stabbed another. Medical staff responded and assessed his condition. He was transported to an outside hospital via ambulance for treatment. The RCMP and the institution’s security intelligence office are investigat-

ing the incident. Mission will remain locked down during the investigation and will re-open when management determines it is safe. No staff or other inmates were injured during this incident. Mission Institution is a federal medium-security institution located just north of Mission. The institution currently houses 272 inmates.

Fundraiser organized to help Japan BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Mission’s bridges and dams could be compromised if an earthquake hit this area.

RECORD FILE PHOTOS

Can you survive 72 hours? BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Japan’s earthquake has prompted local emergency officials to plead with the public to ensure they are prepared for when a massive natural disaster hits this area. Mission Fire/Rescue Chief Ian Fitzpatrick, who also serves as the local emergency preparedness coordinator, said residents should have items on hand and training to take care of themselves for at least 72 hours. On top of having basic first aid knowledge and a kit of supplies that can sustain you and your family (see list below), everyone should know how to shut off the gas to their house. This can be done with a quarter-turn on the gas meter valve attached to the house. While earthquakes and other natural disasters have not struck the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley for decades — with the exception of the 2007 floods

— many people don’t realize there is a fault line that runs up around the Stave Lake area, said Fitzpatrick. The concern would be if an earthquake happened along the Juan de Fuca fault and triggered a movement in the local plate boundary and the effect this would have on both dams, he said. BC Hydro has done modelling on potential earthquake damage, the chief added, and the rush of water if the dams burst would primarily cause hardship to Abbotsford. Fitzpatrick said Mission’s Emergency Social Services would be one of the key groups involved after a natural disaster, and that the organization is always needing more volunteers. If you are interested in more information call 604820-3793. Emergency supply kit: • First aid kit and instruction booklet. • Shelter: a plastic tarp, a

small tent, emergency (“space”) blankets, or even some large garbage bags. • Water: at least four litres of water per person, per day, in tight-lidded, non-breakable containers. That’s at least 12 litres per person for a three-day supply. • Keep a supply of water purification tablets in your emergency kit. Water also can be made safe to drink by using four drops of liquid household bleach in four and a half litres of clear water or 10 drops in four in a half litres of cloudy water. Replace stored tap water at least every six months. • If the water is still running, fill a bathtub and other containers. Remember, there’s water available too in a hot water tank and toilet reservoir. • Food: Keep a suply of nonperishable food handy, such as canned and dehydrated food, dried fruit and canned juices. Rotate periodically to keep them fresh. Remember a manual can opener.

• Flashlight and spare batteries. Keep the flashlight near your bed. Batteries should be separate in your kit. • Battery AM/FM radio and spare batteries, stored separately in waterproof bags. • Essential medication and supplies for infants, elderly persons and those with special needs. Keep at least a one-week supply in your emergency kit. Include copies of prescriptions for your medicine and glasses. • Personal toiletry items: toilet tissue, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc. • Class ABC fire extinguisher. Keep it in a handy location in your home, after testing according to directions. • Wrench (crescent or pipe) to turn off natural gas. Keep it in a handy place or in your emergency kit. • Shoes- heavy enough to protect from broken glass and other debris. Keep them handy, wherever you are. - Source: Provincial Emergency Preparedness

The newly formed Mission International Friendship Association is organizing a dinner and silent auction to raise money for victims of the earthquake and tsunami which hit Japan March 11. The district has a special connection with one Japanese city and many Missionites were immediately concerned about the well-being of Oyama residents after hearing the news. Last Wednesday, Mission residents who visited the Asian country and formed strong friendships with those living in Oyama, met to discuss how to help. Oyama, located about six hours away from the earthquake’s epicenter, suffered only minor damages to roads, rock walls and houses, said Mayor James Atebe. “No lives were lost.” However, the Japanese residents are now dealing with power black outs and supply shortages. Kazuko Akita, Naomi Goto and Misako Katsumata have been providing updates to the district’s Kelly Ridley on a regular basis since the crisis. Akita was the translator in 2009 when a delegation from Mission visited the sister city, and Katsumata organizes Oyama students’ visits to Mission. Ridley, a member of the Oyama Sister City Committee, has known Goto since 2005 and they have become close friends, staying at each other’s houses whenever representatives from the two cities meet. “When the disaster struck, I e-mailed all the Mission delegates from 2009 and asked that they send a message to their host families to make sure they were safe,” Ridley told The Record. “We then shared our messages amongst ourselves to give us some piece of mind.” The next delegation from Oyama is expected to visit in July 2012. There are no students in Mission at the moment, but two are expected in late July. Mission and Oyama became sister cities in 1996. The fundraising dinner and silent auction will take place on Friday, April 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at All Saints Anglican Church, 33077 Second Ave. A vegetable curry with rice and salad will be served. Tickets are $20 each and available from Ridley at municipal hall, Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue, or by calling Pam at 604-302-2005. Silent auction donations can be dropped off on the second floor of municipal hall. All proceeds will be forwarded to the Canadian Red Cross. All the major banks in Mission, including Bank of Montreal, TD, CIBC, Royal and Scotia, are accepting donations for the Canadian Red Cross. A tax receipt will be issued for donations of $10 or more.

Opposition parties won’t support fed budget BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

A federal election could be called this week after opposition parties refused to support the Conservatives’ budget Tuesday. Local MP Randy Kamp defended the budget saying it represented the next phase of Canada’s action plan to complete the economic recovery. “We’re keeping taxes low and controlling government spending,” said Kamp who had hoped the opposition parties “would see value in working together.”

The budget contained a number of things to strengthen families and communities, such as extending the eco-fit program, new financial support for low income seniors, new tax credits for family caregiver and children’s art, and a loan forgiveness program to attract doctors to rural areas. The other parties should have showed Canadians more respect by reading the entire budget before saying they don’t support it, said Kamp, who believes voters don’t want to head to the polls. “A lot was not included in the ver-

bal budget speech,” he added. Kamp isn’t optimistic the other parties will change their minds, and notes budget amendments are always possible, but the Conservatives believe the document has already been carefully crafted and is in Canadians’ best interests. In an NDP news release, leader Jack Layton said the budget failed to strengthen the Canada Pension Plan and provides no relief for heating bills. A non-confidence vote could be introduced today or Friday, forcing a spring election.

If an election is called, Kamp says he is ready with a large team of volunteers. “I never like to run,” he said. “I don’t like campaigns, but I consider it a privilege to serve the people of Mission, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.” If the election gauntlet is dropped, other federal candidates in the Mission-Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows riding are Craig Speirs for the NDP and the Green Party’s Peter Tam. The Liberals say there is a candidate lined up, but won’t reveal a name until an election is called.

Speirs is a councillor in Maple Ridge who admits it will be difficult to unseat Kamp. “He’s fairly popular even if he hasn’t done much,” said Speirs. Tam is active in Scouts and youth arts activities. As a computer systems consultant, he says he may have an edge over the other candidates in using social media. He pointed to a recent poll that if only people under 25 years old would vote, the Green Party would win a majority in the House of Commons. - with Maple Ridge News files

like knives, guns, sledgehammers or crowbars, and demand cash and the plants, explained Dickson, who suspects many of these crimes are not reported because the victim would also be caught in an illegal activity and charged. On March 21 a man phoned police and claimed he and a friend were doing a grow rip at Cedar Street and Dewdney Trunk Road, but ended up being taken hostage. The man told police he escaped, but his friend was still captive in the house. He provided

There have been 10 home invasions related to marijuana grow rips over the past three months in Mission. These crimes are usually reported by neighbours who believe a break-in is happening, or by victims shaken up by the incident, said Sgt. Miriam Dickson, noting growers with as few as eight marijuana plants have been targeted. The thieves usually kick the door in, and once inside produce weapons,

RCMP with a cell phone number but no name. It was a disposable phone and couldn’t be traced, said Dickson. When police arrived at the home, they found a grow op, but no evidence of anyone captive. Two men and one woman, believed to be residents of the home, were arrested, and police returned later in the day with a warrant to seize the 400 plants. A day later, an anonymous caller reported a door being kicked in at a home in the 32100 block of Eagle Terrace. Police

found eight marijuana plants inside. Other incidents occurred as early as Jan. 8 in the 7700 block of Grand Street where a door was left open and 400 plants were located. A couple of days later, 440 plants were discovered in the 33000 block of Cherry Avenue and 647 plants were seized from a home on Lapwing Crescent. Wrong houses have also been attacked, such as the incident on Feb. 28 when five suspects wearing balaclavas and face masks forced their way into a home in the 29700 block of the Lougheed Highway demanding the plants. A man and his two young children were home at the time, but were not injured and the suspects left after realizing the house didn’t contain what they wanted. So far nobody has been injured, but ultimately these actions are endangering the public when the wrong house is targeted, said Dickson, who is encouraging the public to report any suspected grow operations to police by calling 604-8267161.

‘Tragic, hopelessly booked, grave’ and ‘ridiculous’ Welcome to B.C.’s burgeoning courthouse crunch BY JEFF NAGEL Black Press

A

drunk driver with his young son in his car nearly hits two police officers and a bystander at the side of the road in Prince George, but is not held accountable for his actions. A hunter from Merritt is caught poaching protected big horn sheep near Williams Lake, yet never faces consequences. These are real cases recently thrown out of court in B.C., allowing those accused of crimes to walk free. The reason? Unacceptable delays stemming from chronic provincial government underfunding of the legal system, including courts, judges, prosecutors, support staff and legal aid. An estimated 2,000 additional criminal cases still stuck in the system have already been delayed so long, they are at risk of being thrown out as well. And there’s no end in sight. So clogged are the courts that judges are increasingly outspoken in denouncing the logjam and lack of resources that threaten the integrity of the entire system. “The backlog is so great and the courts so crowded that in many cases there will be an unreasonable delay should there be even one adjournment on a trial date,” warned Surrey Provincial Court Judge Peder Gulbransen last November, as he threw out the prosecution of an impaired driver who waited 32 months for a trial date. “Justice delayed is justice denied,” ruled Judge Ronald Webb last year, in staying the case in Cranbrook against an accused cocaine dealer who waited more than two years for a trial expected to take just three hours.

There have been few signs of improvement in the B.C. courthouse congestion, even with the release of a judge-written report called Justice Delayed last September. BOAZ JOSEPH PHOTO

Another troubling example is that of an alleged child rapist in Coquitlam whose trial never went ahead because the system apparently couldn’t afford to translate victims’ statements quickly enough so the accused could understand them. Police requests for funding for the translations had been denied and the trial was repeatedly delayed. “It is very disturbing that the value of the complainants’ sexual, physical and emotional integrity is less than the cost of translation and transcription,” Judge

identified but had no chance to clear his name. The case is now being reviewed by B.C. Representative for Children and Youth Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, who called it a “very grave” situation. “I’m very concerned about these delays,” she said in an interview. “You can see the alarm bells being raised in multiple places in British Columbia in the court system.” ••••••• But judges’ hands are tied. They are bound by Supreme Court of Canada rulings that firmly limit how long cases can be prolonged before the constitutional right of the accused to a fair trial has been violated and a stay of proceedings must be entered. in Defence lawyers can’t ddeliberately drag their feet to get a case tossed. fe In deciding a delay is unacceptable, judges count only the slowdowns attributed to the system itself or Crownrequested adjournments. They must also conclude the defendant was harmed in some way by the wait. But B.C.’s case backlog now leaves virtually no room for any kind of error that could cause delay. Some cases are quashed after as little as 14 months, and the applications become much harder for the Crown to

Marion Buller Bennett ruled last year. She ordered the multiple charges of assault, assault with a weapon, sexual assault, incest and sexual touching of a young person be dropped after a two-year wait. The judge called it “a tragedy” for all, including the accused — a man who was publicly

fend off when the accused has waited more than 18 months. The judges themselves tabled a damning report last September titled “Justice Delayed” that warned “thousands of cases are at risk” of being dropped due to too much time elapsing between charges being laid and an accused’s day in court. At that time, there were 17 fewer provincial court judges on the bench than in 2005 — a 12-per-cent decrease. B.C. is the only province in Canada where the number of sitting judges decreased over that period, despite a growing population, rising caseload and increased complexity of many trials. Coupled with inadequate numbers of Crown prosecutors, court clerks and sheriffs, the report said, the available court time to handle cases is down significantly and is unable to keep pace with the rising demand. In Surrey alone, the report said, it would take three more full-time judges hearing criminal trials for two years to reduce wait times to acceptable levels. ••••••• Since those findings, there’s little sign of improvement. Six new judges have been appointed since October 2010, but others retired so the net increase is just two positions. Front-line prosecutors,

lawyers and court staff believe that’s insufficient to stop the deterioration of the system. “The situation has gotten worse, undeniably,” said Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C.

Crown Counsel Association. “It’s becoming more dire as the days go on.” Despite the extra judges, the number of adult criminal cases older than 18 months in the system climbed from just over 2,000 last fall to more than 2,100 by February, 2011. Trials aren’t just lined up far into the future but also stacked three and four deep on the same day — dates that Judge Webb called “hopelessly overbooked.” Staff shortages aren’t the only problem. Physical courtroom space is in short supply in many areas, a result of the government’s 2002 decision to close 24 courthouses, including ones in Delta, Burnaby, Hope, Maple Ridge and Squamish, increasing the load on neighbouring courts. Major criminal trials involving organized crime — such as the “Surrey Six” murders or the UN Gang prosecution — aren’t expected to be lost to delay. But Lakshman warns

time-intensive megatrials suck up vast amounts of resources for courts, police and prosecutors, leaving less time to dispense justice for more run-of-the-mill criminals. He argues any money saved by the province through justice system austerity is a false economy, considering the money blown bringing accused criminals to court but not quite to trial. Cases are being terminated after police have conducted a full investigation and submitted charge recommendations. After Crown has read the file and approved charges. After charges have been sworn in court. And after many appearances before a judge, prosecutor, clerk and sheriff — often with various witnesses waiting to testify. “It’s a complete waste of money,” Lakshman said. “It adds lunacy on top of a ridiculous situation.”

Gov’t headache If Canada’s medicinal marijuana carried a warning of side effects, it might read something like this. Warning: may cause home invasions. Can lead to newspaper headlines. Unintended consequences may develop. The mayors of both Langleys and the Langley RCMP commander have called for an end to licensed homebased pot growing operations, complaining the growth in medicinal marijuana growing permits is out of control. This comes in the wake of reports about three robberies of legal licenced growing operations in Langley over the last six months. RCMP complain they don’t know where the legal grow ops are until someone robs them. Pot has been shown to help cancer patients control the nausea induced by chemotherapy, reduce internal pressure in glaucoma cases and stimulate appetite in patients with AIDS among other things. Allowing its limited use in such cases under a doctor’s supervision seemed to make sense. But what has resulted seems less and less like limited use. In one year, the number of growing permits in B.C. alone has more than doubled. During the same period, the number of legal users has grown even more, with more than 13 times as many people. If the use of private legal marijuana grow ops is going to continue, it is going to have to be better regulated. Letting police and local authorities know where they are located would be a good start. Limiting their numbers could be another. There are now nearly as many people permitted to grow marijuana for their own use or for others (2,585) as there are licenced users in B.C. (2,995). Do we really need that many? – Langley Times

Don’t play politics with Hydro R ich Coleman is B.C.’s fourth energy minister in the past year, which is as good a measure as any of the political storm that has rocked the government. On only his second day on the job, Coleman was already showing why Premier Christy Clark calls him a “tough guy” who can stare down the big-spending BC Hydro. Clark is, of course, concerned that it may not be “good for families” if Hydro rates go up 50 per cent in the next five years. The city media made a big story out of how Coleman is considering pulling the plug on the smart meter program or some other expensive project like the Ruskin dam overhaul. Interim NDP leader Dawn Black is demanding that the new premier “tackle skyrocketing Hydro rates” now that she’s eliminated poverty by raising the minimum wage. Don’t hold your breath.

costs and rate hikes. Coleman could possibly reduce the rate impact via privatization. According to BC Hydro’s most radical union, COPE local 378, this is imminent, as the utility’s contract with Accenture expires in 2013. COPE produced the infamous “Gordon Campbell wants to kill your grandma!” ad campaign for the 2009 election, and its penchant for overstatement continues. It issued a news release last week warning of the “possible breakup” of BC Hydro in outsourcing agreements as much as three times the size of the Accenture deal. A BC Hydro spokesman advises me that no, the utility is not considering breaking itself up into three entities, or greatly expanding its outsourcing. The next time you hear about a quick solution for rising electricity rates, take it with a grain of salt.

YOUR VIEWS

Hawes should have crossed floor in protest Editor, The Record: Re: Dalton has done little for Mission, March 17 edition. I applaud Mr. Ryan’s recent letter to the editor regarding the recall of Marc Dalton MLA for Maple RidgeMission. Dalton was elected with 68 votes more than his competitor and it was just a few days later it was leaked that the Fraser Health Authority had put Mission Memorial Hospital’s emergency department on the chopping block.

This was very convenient for Mr. Dalton as had this information been released even a day before the election, it is almost certain that 68 wouldbe BC Liberal voters would have stayed home or voted otherwise. I also find it very odd that Elections BC decided to split Mission into two ridings shortly before the 2009 election when it was clear that Mission MLA Randy Hawes had won the 2005 election Mission riding by the seat of his pants. While Dalton hasn’t done much

for our riding, I think that the blame of allowing Mission hospital to be gutted like a fish in 2001 rests with Randy Hawes, who should have stood up for the hospital. A true representative of the people would have at least crossed the floor in protest. While I support the recall Dalton campaign, I would be willing to personally canvas homes in a recall Hawes campaign as I would like to see this gentleman ousted. Mr. Hawes clearly doesn’t see the health of Mission residents as a pri-

ority. His recent comments regarding the gravel mining around Lake Errock were that he couldn’t possibly revoke the mining companies licenses as it would cost the BC government “10s of millions of dollars.” Perhaps Mr. Hawes should have considered this fact before he allowed licenses to be approved for mining that would allow damaging carcinogenic pollutants to be released into the air for his constituents and their children to breathe in. To add insult to injury, he stood aside

while health services to his riding were cut back. I made the move across the river from Abbotsford last year to Mission and am very pleased to now call this community my home. I look forward to seeing our two MLAs recalled and will personally assist in any campaigns to recall them. Perhaps I should thank them for inspiring a young person such as myself to take an interest in politics. John Welsh Mission

More politicians like Constituents feeling betrayed Dalton needed here Editor, The Record: Recently, I heard MLA Marc Dalton had been asked what he had done for the community. I can answer that question. One day, about three years ago, I went to buy groceries at Save-On Foods, on 227 Street in Maple Ridge. There, outside the entrance on this cold winter night was Marc Dalton standing by the Salvation Army kettle, with his wife Marlene by his side. I wasn’t surprised to see them there together, ringing the Christmas bells of charity. In the year that followed, Marc and Marlene asked me if I would like to join them one Saturday evening, as they were going to be outdoors, comforting the homeless. They explained that we could offer food, a caring word, or just listen, to let the most needy among us know someone really cared.

The Daltons have worked together in the community, tirelessly, for many years. I think the people of Maple Ridge and Mission are very lucky to be represented by this man of real integrity and compassion. Anyone who questions Marc’s devotion to the well-being of others, and his community, should take notice, for he leads by example. How many politicians are literally out there on our streets, giving their free time to comfort others? Those questioning Marc’s service record, or wanting a change in leadership, should be careful what they wish for. Marc is a rare breed in today’s political arena and we need more dedicated men and women like the Maple Ridge-Mission MLA in political office, and on our streets. Gail Payeur Maple Ridge

Editor, The Record: Maple Ridge-Mission MLA Marc Dalton likes to insist the recall campaign is the work of the NDP. In his mind that would somehow delegitimize this enormous grassroots effort to force accountability on a politician elected to represent his constituents. I support the recall effort and I happen to vote NDP. Bill Vander Zalm, on the other hand, probably doesn’t vote NDP. The effort to smear legitimate activists with the

NDP/socialist/pinko label is a pathetic attempt at distraction. A red herring. A broad range of people want and expect accountability from their elected representatives. Mr. Dalton, try listening to your constituents while we explain our feelings of betrayal. Try apologizing to us for your lack of integrity with respect to the HST. You might learn that democracy activists come from across the political spectrum. Elizabeth Rosenau Maple Ridge

Roundabouts should have been installed along Cedar Street Editor, The Record: Re: Cedar Street resurfacing appears to be taking long time to complete, March 10 edition. I have a few questions about this project. Why was the four-way stop eliminated at Cedar and Tunbridge? I have seen a few accidents here since its removal. Why are traffic lights being put in? Why were roundabouts not put in at Egglestone and Tunbridge? They have proven to be more effective at accident prevention than traffic lights especially when power is lost.

During the last power outage, I saw many people not using the four-way stop and just driving through as if there was no intersection there at all. How much money would be saved in the cost of the installation and operation of a traffic light? Drive down to Bellingham on Guide Meridian Road and see how effective the new roundabouts work along that route. Stephen Mcbride Mission

Two men who were involved in a home invasion in Mission in 2009 were recently sentenced to jail terms. Darren Paul Deadder, 32, and Robert Francis Wright, 29, both pleaded guilty to robbery with a firearm. Deadder received a three-year prison term and Wright was sentenced to 18 months.

This is in addition to the 42 months’ credit they were each given for time already served. A total of five people were charged in connection with the incident that occurred on April 28, 2009. Court documents state that two men were with co-accused Ashley Lindgren, who knocked on the door of a home on Catherwood Road in a rural Mission area just after midnight. The home was occupied by a couple with a small child. The male resident answered the door and had a brief conversation with Lindgren, who did not enter the home. He closed the door, but before he could lock it, the two men burst

neath a trailer. He had $4,000 cash on him and jewelry which the couple later identified as theirs. Meanwhile, Deadder and Lindgren remained in the van with the driver, Terence Derouin. Police found a loaded Browning 9 mm handgun with ten rounds in its magazine, as well as another clip containing ammunition, court documents state. The van contained another $2,000 in cash and more of the victims’ jewelry. All four individuals were charged in connection to the robbery. A fifth person, Daniel Doherty, who is Deadder’s cousin, was charged for helping to plan the offence at a hotel room in Mission. He knew

After determining there was no further imminent danger to the building, fire officials turned the building over the RCMP. Local Mounties secured the building and seized the plants after obtaining a search warrant. Teens arrested Three teenagers were arrested after police spotted a stolen vehicle near Mission Secondary School March 15. Police parked at a “hot spot” for crime when they saw a suspicious car with young kids. An officer tried to pull over the green Eagle Vision

near Horne Street and Ito Avenue, but the car sped away. Mounties located the vehicle behind the high school as the three occupants attempted to flee. Two were immediately taken into custody, while the driver ran into the school. Police gave chase, and the suspect was arrested after running into other police officers already in the school. The driver, who is a minor and cannot be named, was charged with possession of stolen property, dangerous driving and theft. He was also involved in a police pursuit in Chilliwack eight days before his Mission arrest. The other two teens were released to their guardians.

Doherty went to the robbery scene in a separate vehicle and had the van follow him, the documents state. Charges were later stayed against Lindgren and Derouin. Doherty pleaded guilty in separate proceedings to robbery with a firearm and was sentenced to 18 months, in addition to 42 months’ credit for time served. Supreme Court Justice Terence Schultes said in sentencing Deadder and Doherty, he considered that the offence had been planned.

The intruders then demanded cash and valuables. One held the couple at gunpoint in the kitchen, while the other ransacked their bedroom. The two took more than $6,000 in cash, jewelry and other valuables before fleeing to a van. The couple notified police, who stopped the vehicle in another area of Mission.

As we all know, sunglasses protect peoples’ eyes from ultraviolet rays. Different coloured sunglass lenses accomplish different purposes. Polarized lenses are wonderful on a bright sunny day, but on a dull, overcast day, yellow lenses are the best choice. Skiers, cyclists, and golfers have been known to benefit from yellow lenses because they enhance contrast and brightness in low light. If you find driving at night in the rain difficult, yellow lenses with an anti-glare coating on the back surface will be a great choice, as the coloured lens will enhance the contrast, and reduce the glare of car lights.

and BUILDERS Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertips 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 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.

Fraudulent letter warning About two weeks ago, letters started landing at the Envision Credit Union head office in Langley. They’d been marked “return to sender” by suspicious recipients, all of them U.S. residents who were quite right to doubt their veracity. For one thing, the address of the Envision Financial Regional Office had the wrong postal code — V2Y 2X2. For another, the credit union has nothing to do with any American lottery. “Congratulations” the letter read. It claimed the target had won last year’s surplus of the Michigan Electronic Millionaire Raffle. Some mailings even came with a cheque. The letter instructed the recipient to call a “claim’s agent” before cashing the cheque. However, the number provided was that of a fraudster who will collect a fee and claim the cheque is legitimate when it isn’t. The credit union has posted a warning on its website for any Americans who Google Envision because of the letters. Envision has also posted a page of antifraud tips at www.envisionfinancial.ca.

hour. “We know that even at $10.25, it will still be below the low-income cutoff for poverty rates in this province, so it’s still going to be a challenge,” Simpson said. Clark denied that raising the minimum wage will cost jobs in the B.C. economy. “Less than three per cent of the population works at minimum wage,” Clark said. “It’s about 41,000 people, and a good portion of that will be working in

an alcohol server jobs. So I don’t think it will cost jobs.” Business representatives disagreed. “The research is clear that minimum wage hikes put entry-level jobs in jeopardy,” said Mark von Schellwitz, chair of the Coalition of BC Businesses. “Employers on tight margins will have to roll back hours or hold off new hires due to increased payroll costs as well as expectations for

cascading wage hikes for non-minimum wage employees.” Labour Minister Stephanie Cadieux said the decision to phase in the increase was made after detailed consultation with business and labour representatives, begun last fall. The ministry will review the situation every two years to see if further changes need to be made, Cadieux said. - with files from Jason Roessle

B.C.’s minimum wage is going up from $8 an hour to $8.75 on May 1, with two more increases by next year. Premier Christy Clark made the announcement last week after her first cabinet meeting. She called it a “long overdue first step” in a province where the minimum wage hasn’t changed in a decade and is the lowest in Canada. When fully implemented, the pay of a minimum wage worker will increase by about $4,000 a year. The general hourly minimum wage rate rises to $8.75 on May 1, to $9.50 on Nov. 1 and to $10.25 on May 1, 2012. The $6 an hour training wage is also being eliminated this May 1. A lower minimum will be set for restaurant and bar employees who serve alcohol: $8.50 an hour on May 1, $8.75 on Nov. 1 and $9 on May 1, 2012. Clark said that measure is similar to the minimum wage system in Ontario, and it reflects the tips earned by alcohol servers. “People who serve alcohol for a living will in many cases be earning more from their tips than they do from their wages,” Clark said. One local employer said government’s move will do nothing more than increase costs to businesses and customers. “This amounts to about a 30 per cent hit to labour costs, and this causes a 15 to 20 per cent rise in price customers will pay,” said Ted Adlem, owner of Pete’s Place Pizza. “In my case, I need to look at cutting labour [hours] by more than 10 per cent.” Adlem also believes this will make it challenging for younger workers to secure employment. NDP critic Shane Simpson said the initial increase will still leave B.C. with the lowest minimum wage in the country. The NDP and the B.C. Federation of Labour have been campaigning for an immediate increase to $10 an

Joining UDI will benefit Mission BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

The formation of a Fraser Valley chapter of the Urban Development Institute (UDI) will help draw developers’ eyes to this part of the region. According to the District of Mission’s economic development officer, Stacey Crawford, the municipality has joined with Maple Ridge, Abbotsford and Chilliwack to create the chapter, to which the institute is considering issuing a charter. “We were very well received by the UDI board in January,” said Crawford. “They recognize that development is pushing east and that a significant portion of development for the next couple of decades will occur outside Metro Vancouver.”

Being a part of this group will increase Mission’s profile. “We create a direct connection to the development community in Vancouver and this will allow us to make them aware of the opportunities in the Fraser Valley,” he added. The institute is highly regarded, Crawford noted, and membership allows Mission to take part in promotional and educational events as well as monthly luncheons, all attended by “development heavy hitters.” A “next steps” meeting happens March 30, where Crawford will hear from UDI on the steps needed to formalize the chapter. The UDI is a national non-profit association of the development industry and its related professions that is non-partisan in its activities, said the institute’s website. Its efforts are focused in government relations, professional development and education, and research.

Voters will have final say on P3 deal BY KEVIN MILLS Black Press

Voters will have the final say on whether Abbotsford and Mission move forward on a P3 (public private partnership) deal for the new Stave Lake water supply and treatment project. It was announced at a joint council meeting last Thursday night that if both councils approve a P3 recommendation, a referendum would be held during the municipal elections in November. A P3 deal could result in as much as $70 million in federal government funding towards the system, which is now estimated at $300 million – $50 million for the intake/pump station, $130 million for the water treatment plant, $105 million worth of pipeline construction and $15 million for reservoir

construction. “It’s an increase of about $100 million from the original estimate,” said Tracy Kyle, Abbotsford’s director of water and solid waste. She explained the increase was partially due to the need for an underground tunnel to connect the intake with the pump station, to avoid disturbing known archeological sites and address concerns raised by First Nations. Stave Lake’s water is needed to meet the demands of both Abbotsford and Mission. It would become the cities’ fourth source of water. Presently the two communities are serviced by Norrish Creek, Cannel Lake and 19 groundwater wells. These three water sources will continue to be maintained and run publicly. “Our main water

source will still be Norrish Creek. Stave Lake will just supplement it,” said Abbotsford Mayor George Peary, adding if approved, only Stave Lake would fall under the P3 umbrella. Chris Baisley, from the consulting firm of Deloitte & Touche, explained the P3 business case to members of both councils. He is recommending a hybrid-P3 application involving both the design-build-operate (DBO) model and the design-build-financeoperate (DBFO) model. As the names suggest, one model has a private entity design, build and operate the water system, in this case under a 25-year term, while the other also includes private financing. The hybrid idea would see the intake and pump station, water treatment plant and the reservoir expansion fall under the DBFO model while the transmission mains (piping) would be DBO. The inclusion of private financing creates

a long-term warranty, which ensures the pump station and treatment plant run smoothly over the 25-year period. However, the piping, once in the ground, does not need the benefit of a warranty, said Baisley.

The hybrid plan should fit under the guidelines of PPP Canada, which may provide a grant up to 25 per cent of the total cost. Both councils will discuss and vote on the P3 recommendation during

their next meetings on April 4. The public will have the opportunity to provide input at that time. If councils both agree to move forward, the referendum will be a two-part question – one regarding

borrowing money to pay for the capital costs, and the other asking for approval of the financial terms of the P3 agreement. Both communities would have to approve the referendum for the project to move forward.

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS STAVE FALLS SPILLWAY GATES RELIABILITY PROJECT 2011–2013 PROJECT INFORMATION The Stave Falls Spillway Gates Reliability Project will include the replacement of equipment originally installed in the 1920s including: ã The four existing radial spillway gates; ã The existing radial gate hoists; ã The existing electrical distribution system. ROAD CLOSURES Periodic road closures of Dewdney Trunk will be required during the project. In general, these will be short-term (10–15 minutes) or single lane closures. To install the new gates, a full road closure of approximately three days will be required four times during the two-year project. Notification of these complete closures will be provided in advance. RECREATION CLOSURES Loop Trail will be closed over Blind Slough Dam during construction. BC Hydro will re-open road and pedestrian access over the dam during the evenings and on weekends. BC Hydro expects that some evening work will be required between mid May and early July. We recognize the inconvenience this may cause and will complete the work safely and efficiently as possible. We appreciate your patience during this work.

Health officials say sensors in B.C. have now detected ‘minute’ levels of radiation coming here from Japan’s crippled nuclear reactors. But they continue to assure the public there is no cause for residents here to worry because of the dispersal of radioactive particles. “These amounts are negligible and do not pose a health risk to British Columbians,” the B.C. Centre for Disease Control said in an update posted Monday. “We are expecting very slight increases in radiation until a week after the reactors are stabilized,”

it said. “These are not cause for concern, and are smaller than the normal day-to-day fluctuations typically seen in B.C.” BCCDC officials say the radiation levels arriving from Japan are tiny compared to other natural sources of exposure for B.C. residents, including rocks and soil, ultraviolet radiation from the sun and cosmic radiation from space. Levels so far detected are at 0.0000005 millisieverts, according to the BCCDC. By comparison, a dental x-ray is about 0.015 millisieverts – or 30,000 times as much. Passengers on a cross-country airline flight can be exposed to 0.03 millisieverts or 60,000 times as much. And a CT scan can expose a person to between five and 30 millisieverts – more than 10 million times as much as the Japanese radiation readings so far in B.C. Background radiation levels

from natural sources in B.C. add up to an average of two to three millisieverts per year, according to the BCCDC. Health Canada is also adding nine more radiation monitoring stations in B.C., in addition to six units already in place along the coast. Residents are urged not to take or stockpile potassium iodide, which should be taken only when recommended by doctors and can otherwise cause side effects. The Japanese nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has caused partial meltdowns at multiple reactors, releasing large amounts of radiation and triggering a massive evacuation of that region. The crisis is currently rated as severe as the Three Mile Island disaster in the U.S. but still well short of the 1986 Chernobyl reactor fire that contaminated large areas of eastern Europe.

Strahl: ‘We’re a Hoskins earns Green Party strong, united, nod in Fraser Canyon riding Big Blue team’ BY ROBERT FREEMAN Black Press

BY ROBERT FREEMAN Black Press

Conservative candidate Mark Strahl doesn’t believe the internal party strife caused by the drastically reduced nomination period here in the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding will dog him into the election campaign. There is no split in the party, he said Tuesday, after his Monday night nomination victory, and any anger in the membership is focused at the national level, which imposed the shortened nomination period here and in two other B.C. ridings where Conservative MPs announced they would not seek reelection. “I don’t think it’s going to be a problem for us locally,” Strahl said. “We’re a strong, united, Big Blue team.” “I know the members in the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon are behind me, and now we have a job to do,” he said. Strahl won the nomination over rival Ernie Charlton by a vote of 144 to 77. In his nomination speech before the vote, Strahl said there was some “urgency” to select a candidate who can carry the party’s banner in an election campaign that could start “in a matter of days.” “I believe I am that candidate, and I hope to earn your trust here tonight,” he said. In contrast, Charlton highlighted his “real life experience” in the private sector, which he believed would resonate with voters in the election campaign as the party’s candidate would surely be “grilled on what qualifies him to deserve their vote.” “Yes, filling Chuck Strahl’s shoes will be difficult, but we can’t forget these were once the cork boots of a logger,” Charlton said. “It’s these experiences that Chuck Strahl brought to the table when first elected.” Former DewdneyAlouette MP Grant McNally introduced Strahl to the packed meeting room at the Coast Hotel, saying the 32-year-old son of retiring MP Chuck

Mark Strahl is hoping to win the ChilliwackFraser Canyon riding under the Conservative banner. FILE PHOTO

Strahl had worked for him for six years in his constituency office. But he said the candidate had “proved to me he was much more” than just Strahl’s son. “Mark is his own man with strong and deep roots,” he said. Strahl promised in his speech, if elected, that he would “get tough on crime” and “put victims’ rights first, every time.” He also promised to work to get rid of the long gun registry, keep taxes low and continue democratic reforms. “If elected, I will take these ideals to Ottawa,” he said. But some party members openly questioned the nine-day nomination period, imposed on the riding by national party officials. The usual nomination period is six to eight weeks. “It’s a mockery of democracy,” party member Alexander Moens said. “Our democracy is more important than the (PMO’s) agenda.” He said the nomination period was not long enough for a “democratic process for people who want to represent the riding to come forward. It weakens our democracy.” He said it also casts a shadow on MP Strahl’s legacy “because Chuck Strahl has been a member of Parliament with no spots … but this looks like an insider job.” NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony and Green Party candidate Jamie Hoskins have announced their election readiness. Only the federal Liberals have not announced a candidate in ChilliwackFraser Canyon.

Jamie Hoskins, a 31-yearold employment counsellor in Chilliwack, has announced his bid for election as the Green Party candidate in the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding. Hoskins said in a news release that “with our economic stability uncertain, and an election on the near horizon” now is the time to stand as a candidate and share his passion for a “green future and to bring residents of the riding together in one voice.” “I’m stepping up on behalf of the 40-plus per cent of voters who were discouraged from get-

ting involved and voting in the last election,” he said. “Those young people, working people, and seniors, who are tired of the partisan games and have given up on raising their political voices.” Hoskins and NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony are the only confirmed candidates so far in the riding. Conservative Party members will select a candidate Monday, following MP Chuck Strahl’s decision not to seek reelection. Hoskins said his decision to run is a result of his experience as an employment counsellor working with families affected by the “economic crisis.”

“You can only see so many people worried about losing their homes and providing for their children before you need to face your fears, answer the moral call, and do something about it,” he said in the news release. Hoskins said he has a “passion for community-building” and will take his election campaign to the social media, iPhones, coffee-shop discussions and “hang-outs of the disenfranchised.” “No way of connecting is off the table,” he said. Hoskins is a former CEO of the Green Party’s riding association in Chilliwack-Fraser.

Hawes to review natural resource operations Premier Christy Clark’s shuffle of B.C. resource ministries is not a reversal of the previous government’s effort to streamline industrial project approvals, the minister responsible says. Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson has added forests and

lands to his title along with natural resource operations. Thomson was assigned last year to oversee the centralization of land use permits that remains the most controversial of former premier Gordon Campbell’s changes.

Unveiling her first cabinet last week, Clark named Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes as a parliamentary secretary to review natural resource operations. But Thomson said that should not be interpreted as a retreat.

“We’re obviously going to look at how that all fits together in the new ministry, and that’s part of Randy Hawes’ job as well,” Thomson said in an interview. “But the basic objective of what we’re trying to achieve in natural resource operations — one

project, one process — stays exactly the same.” Critics have said streamlining approvals for roads, logging, mining and energy projects is a recipe for lowering standards in the name of job creation.

Shogun Rua in Mission Sunday on First Avenue One of MMA’s consistently best performers at Fuel BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Ultimate Fighting Championship superstar Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will be in Mission Sunday. The Brazilian mixed martial arts competitor faced off against Jon “Bones” Jones last weekend, losing in the third round to the hardhitting 23-year-old, and in the process, lost his light heavyweight

belt during his first title defense. Mission Fuel on First Avenue is hosting the popular champion, who has enjoyed a long history in MMA, which included time with Pride Fighting Championship. Store owner Dolf Szilagyi said he hopes the internationally known fighter’s presence will help raise Mission’s profile throughout the region. “I wanted to do something for Mission and bring something exciting here,” he said. The district is a growing city with lots of young people, and UFC is one of the best-known sports around the world, with legions of local fans, evidenced by

how fast pubs fill up when the fights are on. While there are dozens of fighters Szilagyi could have brought in for the March 27 meet and greet, he wanted a top performer. “I wanted people to meet someone successful and hopefully he will be an inspiration for some,” he noted. “I wanted to bring the best.” The event runs from 3 to 5 p.m. at the store, located at 33120 First Ave. If you purchase $75 or more of product from Fuel, VIP tickets are included. The tickets alone, which guarantees you a picture and signature from the Nutrabolics-sponsored fighter, are $50 and available at the store.

Steve Bonnett Memorial runs this weekend across Mission BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Approximately 60 teams from the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley will be converging on Mission this weekend for the annual Steve Bonnett Memorial Youth Soccer Tournament. According to tournament chair Jim Cook, teams from Vancouver Island and the Interior are also

making the trek to compete for the top prize. “There will be lots of new faces,” he said. The event is for boys and girls playing U11 to U18 divisions. Attendance is down a bit this year because of another tournament being held in Burnaby at the same time, and one that happened in Cloverdale last weekend. The competition will be cen-

tered at the Sports Park, but fields all over the district will be used, said Cook. Bonnett was a former vice-president and executive member of the Mission Soccer Club who passed away in 2005. The club had hosted an annual tournament for over a decade that boasted more than 150 teams. After Bonnett’s death, the tournament was renamed in his honour.

Catch the live fights Saturday night Mission City Boxing is presenting a night of live boxing March 26 at 7:30 p.m. This will highlight five of Mission City Boxing Club’s amateur athletes starting with 12-year-old Tyson Volker versus Justis McKay-Topley from Nanaimo. They have each won one of their two previous matches, so this will be the rubber match. The card will also feature Leeland Oosterbrink facing off against Kamloops’ Drew Weafer. Oosterbrink is an exciting boxer to watch, having won his two previous matches by TKO in the first round. Sean McIntosh is now ranked number two in Canada and he will be fighting Josh Slager from Kamloops, who has had eight wins in a row. The co-main event will be Jessy Brown, a two-time Canadian champion, against Tody Ibedero from New Westminster.

The Mission Record Thursday, March 24, 2011 19

Finally aged enough to join old boys club I

n his epic angler’s story, author Norman Mclean penned, “Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman.” Now that I am referred to as the old guy at my day job, I begrudgingly concede that I have joined the old boys club. How old is that? I am old enough to remember looking forward to and watching, Ted Peck’s, Tides and Trails, every Saturday. How many of today’s sport fishing fans know who Ted Peck was, let Je alone that he hosted a show? I am also old enough to have my interest in fly fishing be sparked by “The Flying Fisherman” Gadabout Gaddis. How many know who he was? What did we do in those days before metric, and the Internet? We learned to do it ourselves; though much trial and error, leg work and analysis. Compared to the endless volumes of fishing literature available today, good fishing books were rare and prized. Our local well-healed anglers shopped at Harkley and Haywood while the rest of us went to department or hardware stores and made due with their limited stock. Many of us made our own nonslip soles for wading boots and waders and unlike today, rods were bought rarely and self-repaired often. We didn’t buy our boats, we made them and the RV was the family station wagon with a tent, cooler and camp stove in the back. As one of these old guys, from the old school fishing crowd, can I compete with the new age of sport fishing stars? No. My one trip to the Canadian national fly fishing championship is testament to that. However, as one who has been down the road more times than he cares to remember, I can teach you how to catch a fish or 12 and do it

without making the family financially destitute. Balance that against the cost of fuel and tackle, then tell me who the champ is. The report Fishing on our Lower Mainland lakes is improving, thanks to the sun. Try to concentrate your fishing from late morning through midafternoon with: Chironomid, Bloodworm, Big Black, Woolly Bugger, Micro Leach, Sixpack, Dragonfly Nymph, Halfback, Doc Spratley, ff Baggy shrimp, or Zulu. The Fraser River and sloughs are good for cutthroat and dolly varden. For cutthroat try: Rolled Muddler, Mickey Finn, Eggo, Tied Down Minnow, Epoxy Minnow, Flesh Fly, Professor, Lioness, Coachman, Zulu, Chez Nymph. For dolly Varden try: Large (#4 to #1) Eggo, Dolly Whacker, Bucktail, Epoxy Minnow, Big Black, Muddler, or Zonker. The Vedder River is good for steelhead, dolly varden and rain-

bow, by the weekend. For steelhead try: big Black, Popsicle, Steelhead Nightmare, Polar shrimp, GP, Thor, Squamish Poacher, Kaufmann Stone, Purple Peril, or Eggo. For rainbow try: Rolled Muddler, Eggo, Flesh Fly, Kaufmann Black Stone, Zulu, Chez Nymph, Big Black, or

Renegade. The Stave River is fair to good for steelhead, rainbow and cutthroat. The Chehalis River is good for steelhead and cutthroat. The Harrison River is good for cutthroat, and rainbow. You can find more at “The Reel Life Press” by Jeff Weltz.

Nominate someone for Woman of the Year The Business and Professional Women’s (BPW) Clubs of Abbotsford and Mission are accepting nominations for the Myrtle Evertt Woman of the Year Awards. So far, no one has come for-

ward with a nomination. The nomination process has been streamlined and some of the criteria changed to promote a greater number of nominations. The committee has relaxed the qualifications this

year to allow BPW Club members to be nominated. Another change is the reduction in the number of years — from five to three — a previous nominee must wait to be re-nominated.

The award was established in 1994 to recognize and honour local women for achievement in business or in a profession. Two nominators with the approval of the nominee must complete the nomination

package. For information contact Pratt, 604-819-5602, or wotynominations@gmail.com. Nomination forms are available at www.bpwabbotsford. ca. The event will take place on May 11.

The addition of first and second stage housing facilities has helped reduce the number of homeless people in Mission, speculates a local community services worker. Jeff Arnold coordinated and organized the Mission 2011 Homeless Count, which took place over a 24-hour period March 15-16, and said there appeared to be fewer people camping outdoors than in 2009 when the last count was held. Just under 30 volunteers went out in groups of two to six for an average of three-hour shifts, said Arnold. The teams visited sites like Union Gospel Mission and went out into some known areas where homeless congregate. Final numbers are still unknown, and a firm count should be released within a month, he added. Arnold noted the numbers won’t be perfectly accurate because pride keeps many without a home from admitting they live on the streets. The count is used to determine the adequacy of services for the homeless.

Stave Lake Water Supply & Treatment Project Council Presentation April 4, 2011 6:30 p.m. The business case for the Stave Lake water Supply and Treatment Project will be presented to both Mission and Abbotsford Councils on April 4, 2011. The District of Mission presentation will take place on April 4, 2011 at 6:30 in the Council Chambers at 8465 Stave Lake Street, Mission, BC. The Regular Council Meeting will follow this presentation.

Smoke alarms mandatory in all residential buildings Under the BC Fire Code, all residential buildings must now be equipped with a smoke alarm. The new regulations now include residences constructed prior to 1979, which had previously been exempt. This includes private residences, hotels, motels and other buildings that provide sleeping accommodations. Landlords must make sure their rental properties comply with the law. Tenants are asked to contact their landlord immediately if they do not have smoke alarms, or if they are not in working order. New homes are built with smoke alarms that connect to the electrical system. How to stay protected • Install smoke alarms according to manufacturer’s specifications. Develop a fire escape plan and practise it with the entire household, so when the smoke alarms sounds everyone knows how to escape safely. • Test your smoke alarms monthly and change the batteries every year. • Never remove the batteries from a smoke alarm. If nuisance alarms are a problem, try moving the alarm to another location, or purchase an alarm with a hush feature, which temporarily silences the alarm. • Smoke alarms don’t

last forever. Replace them if they are more than 10 years old.

The presentation is to address growing demands on our water supply and the Abbotsford-Mission Water & Sewer Commission (AMWCS) is undertaking the development of Stave Lake as a new water supply source for the District of Mission and City of Abbotsford. Approximately $300 million is required for this project, which is beyond the AMWSC’s capacity to develop alone. Cost-sharing partnerships and a variety of funding agreements are needed for the project to proceed. A business case analysis has been conducted that reviews the different ways the project can be delivered, including the traditional approach used by the AMWSC, as well as publicprivate partnership approaches. The business case will be presented to the Mission and Abbotsford Councils on April 4, 2011. If Mission and Abbotsford Councils agree on April 4, 2011 that a public-private partnership offers the best value they may submit an application for funding to the Federal Government for consideration under the P3 Canada Fund for up to 25 per cent funding for the project, or approximately $71.2 million dollars. If this happens, Mission and Abbotsford will seek the consent of their electorate in the fall 2011 as the next step in moving forward with the process.

Things to consider before cutting trees or dumping Placing soil near watercourse can harm environment Before taking down any trees on your property, you must consider the implications. Removing trees within 30 metres of watercourses or on steep slopes can result in significant environmental impacts, ranging from deteriorated water quality to compromised slope stability,

and can constitute an offence under the federal Fisheries Act and/or the provincial Riparian Areas Regulation, as well as municipal bylaws. Depositing soil near watercourses can have equally detrimental effects when loose silt and clay particles are washed into streams, where they can clog fish gills and destroy spawning grounds. Even if there are no watercourses on or near your property, any deposit of 200 m3 or more may require a permit from the district, which

must provide information as to the origin of the material to avoid the deposit of contaminated material. Sites that have received contaminated soils will be listed on the provincial site registry, may be excluded from development until cleaned up, and often suffer significant reductions in property value. Please contact the engineering department at municipal hall at 604-8203736 prior to cutting of trees or dumping of soil on your property.

Burning only permitted in non garbage pick up rural areas Now that spring is on its way, many people are anxious to do some yard cleanup of branches, twigs and tree prunings, and burn the debris. The district encourages all residents to recycle and compost whenever possible. If your property is located within the garbage pick up area of Mission you are not permitted to burn yard debris at anytime. Yard

debris (leaves, twigs, etc.) may be placed in “compostable” plastic bags, paper bags or in 80-L bins with orange stickers (stickers are available free of charge at city hall). Small branches (less than five centimetres in diameter) may be set out in tied bundles not exceeding 1.2 m in length. No bag, bin or bundle may exceed 20 kg in weight. If your property is

located outside the garbage pick up area you are permitted to burn yard debris only between April 1 to April 30 (30 days) in the spring and in the fall from Nov. 1 to Nov. 30 (30 days), in accordance with the burning bylaw. Only one fire is permitted and may not exceed three feet by three feet, and must be supervised at all times. Any burning outside

that time frame is a contravention of the bylaw, and subject to penalty. Burning of construction debris, demolition waste, garbage or land clearing debris (large burn piles) is strictly prohibited in the district at anytime. Further information on burning can be found on the District of Mission website at www.mission.ca.

Pick up after your dog If your dog is running free in the off leash park area it is your responsibility to clean up after them. Did you know that dog waste contaminates the ground and becomes a means of passing intestinal parasites and infections to dogs and people. Your own dog can be repeatedly re-infested by parasites in this way. Picking up the feces prevents a great deal of the contamination. Clean up can reduce veterinary expenses. Please either bring your own waste bags or use the bags supplied at the park and pick up after your dog. Keep our parks enjoyable for everyone.

Cathy Hardy hopes her first solo album will inspire and lift up listeners. She has already shared a number of the songs at small concerts throughout the Fraser Valley and knows how music can touch audiences personally and spiritually. All 13 songs on her new CD, Love Shines, are significant to her in different ways, but they all send out positive messages. Courage for Today is helping her cope with health care issues her father and sister are facing. “The words of this song say ‘strengthen me, give me courage for today,’” said the Mission musician. “These words have been what I have been living in my day to day life.” The single, Love Shines, released last year, reminds Hardy that even in the darkest times, there is still a light

worth seeking. Every song is original and has different sounds. Some tunes simply involve an acoustic guitar and her voice, while a full band plays in others. Hardy says the album has been described as “inspired world music” because of the many genres represented. Aside from the main vocals, the local teacher plays piano and ukulele on the CD. Other instruments used are the didgeridoo, singing bowls, and shofar, played by Boris Sichon, a variety of guitar-like instruments, played by Brian Thiessen, and percussion and bass by other musicians. “I love the variety and textures that each instrument brings,” said Hardy. “All the instruments help tell the story of each song.” Since she was a little girl, Hardy has dreamed of creating her own

Cathy Hardy’s new CD Love Shines will be launched on April 16 in Abbotsford. SUBMITTED PHOTO

album, and now that her dream has been realized, she is grateful and proud of the result. “Putting a CD together is like preparing a gourmet meal — it takes a lot of planning and preparation.” The songs were written over 10 years and some fine tuning and final arrangements had to be made. In

addition to other local musicians, Hardy also worked with Philip Janz throughout the process. The actual recording started in January of this year and the CD will be launched on April 16 at the Matsqui Auditorium in Abbotsford. “This was actually one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life,” said Hardy. “The greatest challenge in the process was bring pushed to my limits vocally, but in the end it was also the most rewarding experience.” Hardy will be playing a selection of songs from Love Shines at an intimate concert on March 30 with Boris Sichon at Mission Arts Centre. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue for $10 each, or by calling Mission Arts Council at 604826-0029.

Mousetrap opens on April 1 at ONTS Classic murder mystery will keep you guessing Agatha Christie’s longest running play The Mousetrap opens April 1 at Mission’s Opening Nite Theatre. The plot unfolds as the guests arrive at Monkswell Manor in the midst of a snowstorm. When Sgt. Trotter arrives, he is hot on the trail of a murderer of woman in Paddington, London. Evidence leads him to believe that the murderer has some connection to Monkswell Manor. He has his work cut out to solve this murder. The question is ‘Who Dun It’? Was it Christopher Wren, the flamboyant architect? Was it Mrs. Boyle, the cantankerous, fault finding older woman? Could it be Miss Casewell, a rather unusual young woman of the manly type, who delights in annoying Mrs. Boyle? Was it Giles Ralston, who runs Monkswell Manor with his wife Mollie, whose activities on the day of the murder give rise to suspicion? Or, could it be Mr. Paravincini, the unexpected guest, an exotic foreigner who seems much younger than he looks? And, what about Major Metcalf, a seemingly quiet retired military man, or is he? See if you can solve this murder as Agatha Christie leads you through a path of clues right up to the end of the play. There will be a reception prior to the performance on April 2 at 7:30 p.m. Brenna Maag, a local artist, will introduce her art exhibition which will be displayed in the lobby during the run of the play. Opening Nite Theatre is located at 33227 N. Railway Ave. (opposite West Coast Express). Evening performances at 8 p.m. take place on April 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, and 16. Matinee performances at 2 p.m. take place on April 3, 10, and 17. Tickets are $12 and available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue or at the door.

I enjoy reading most bumper stickers; they always seem to make driving a little more enjoyable. They are often inspirational or humorous, and always give me a bit of an emotional lift or a good chuckle. I liked one that I recently saw which read, “I (heart) being a Dad,” using a picture of a heart to signify love. Sometimes we may need a little reminder of how much we love something - not only of how much we love our families or those close to us, but how much we love God for all his goodness and love that He has bestowed upon us: the realization that what is good and loving in our lives is a gift from God, because God is Love. Because we are so busy with our everyday lives and responsibilities, we often do not realize how blessed we are by being a father or a mother, or for having loved ones in our lives. The Lord wants us to be devoted to one another in brotherly love and be thankful for our gifts. And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men ... K.J.V. 1 Thessalonians 3:12
