Mission choosing MP May 2 As election day looms closer, candidates reflect on their campaign

A SUCCESSFUL HUNT AT FRHP

BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

With only four days before the election, the federal candidates are moving into the final stages of their respective campaigns. “We’re all fired up,” said the Green Party’s Peter Tam about his volunteers. “This is the week where we’re really pushing.” The group is putting out more signs and doing a “blitz” of public appearances, including attending an all candidates meeting in Mission Tuesday night, one in Whonnock April 27 and a rally in Pitt Meadows. For Tam, this is his first time running for a seat at the federal level and said it’s quite different working in partisan politics. “You have a large group of people working towards a common goal and there’s a real team effort.” Incumbent Randy Kamp, campaigning under the Conservative Party banner, said he’s pleased with the effort put forward so far, noting he’s had the highest number of volunteers this year compared to his two previous runs for the MP seat. Kamp said “we’re still doing the traditional things” in these waning days of the election campaign, including door knocking, dropping off literature, talking to business owners in the communities, and See CANDIDATES Page 4

Strategic voting targets Mission riding BY MONISHA MARTINS Black Press

A strategic voting initiative, stoked by an anti-Harper sentiment, is targeting six B.C. ridings, including Pitt MeadowsMaple Ridge-Mission. Catch 22 — which is registered with Elections Canada as a third party — has the stated lofty goal of defeating more than 30 Conservatives in 2011. “The Catch 22 founders realized that, given the usual vote-splitting among squabbling opposition parties, only a smart, targeted campaign run independently of the parties could deny Stephen Harper his goal,” reads a new release. “This Catch 22 upstart is starting to inspire discouraged voters in 52 of Canada’s 308 electoral districts to vote together against Harper and astonish Canada.” Funded through individual donations, the Catch 22 campaign and Facebook page has been live for about a year and a half. Volunteers are now targeting all-candidate meetings to distribute leaflets urging folks to vote strategically. In Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission, the campaign endorses NDP candidate Craig

Speirs as the only chance to defeat the Conservative incumbent. Elizabeth Rosenau, a Maple Ridge resident who ran against Speirs for the NDP nomination, is a volunteer with Catch 22. “I think that our democracy is really at risk with the Conservative minority undermining it in many different ways,” she said. “I believe that reducing the number of Conservatives is really critical to allowing our country to begin

to restore democracy.” Catch 22 isn’t the only online strategic voting campaigns to resurface since the last federal election. The site Project Democracy also wants to stop a Harper majority government, while Pair Vote attempts to connect disillusioned voters in different ridings through vote swapping. For instance, a NDP member in a riding where the party runs a distant third should consider swapping with a Liberal in a close riding where Liberals run

third. In that way, the competitive NDP candidate and competitive Liberal candidate each gain one vote and their chances of winning increase. Elections Canada deemed online vote-swapping to be legal in 2008. Alice Klein with Projectdemocracy.ca calls their campaign “co-operative voting.” “Through voter co-operating, we can achieve a more representative government,” said Klein, the editor and CEO of Now Magazine, an alterna-

Third option for those not registered on election day Polling stations will be open from noon to 8 p.m. on May 2. If you are not yet registered to vote, you may register at your polling station. In order to prove your identity, Elections Canada requires either one piece of government-issued picture ID, such as a driver’s license, or two pieces of authorized identification, such as a utility bill with your name and address and a care card. A third option exists for those without any iden-

tification whatsoever. You may take an oath, and have an elector with authorized identification from the same polling division (such as a neighbour or roommate) vouch for you. To find the address of your advance poll, look on your voter information card. You can also find the address by visiting www.elections.ca, or by calling Elections Canada at 1-800-463-6868.

tive newspaper in Toronto. “We have a united right and a divided centre-left. This is a way for citizens to empower themselves to get a government that is more reflective of the majority view.” Projectdemocracy.ca has riding projections that are currently predicting a Conservative win in Pitt MeadowsMaple Ridge-Mission with 21,864 votes. (The website is crunching numbers combining historical data with information from rolling polls.) The campaign, which first surfaced in 2008 as voteforenvironment.ca, is funded by Avaaz.com, an online advocacy organization, the Communication Workers of America union and private donations. Conservative candidate Randy Kamp, who is seeking a fourth term as MP, isn’t fazed by the campaigns urging people to vote strategically against him. In 2008, Kamp won 51.8 per cent of the votes in the riding (26,512), almost twice that of his nearest rival, NDP candidate Mike Bocking. “It hasn’t been very successful,” said Kamp. “It motivates my supporters, thousands of them, to get out and vote. It didn’t work last time.”

Election facts • Voter turnout in the 2008 federal election was 58.8 per cent, the lowest of any federal election in Canada’s history, despite having the second highest number of ballots cast, with 13.9 million. • The riding of Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission has been held by a Conservative MP since 1997, when Grant McNally of the Reform Party was elected. Randy Kamp of the Conservative Party has held the seat since 2004. • Pitt MeadowsMaple Ridge-Mission contains more than 120,000 people, according to the 2006 census, with more than 85,000 eligible to vote in this election.

THE HST ISSUE The federal government passed legislation giving $1.6 billion to the province of B.C. to implement HST. The Conservatives, the Liberals & the Bloc voted in favour. The NDP voted against that legislation. If HST is an issue for you, consider that vote when you mark your ballot on Monday May 2, 2011. Ted Adlem Restaurateur

Throughout the days of door knocking and phone calls, water has continued to be an issue for voters, and he’s strived to maintain a positive attitude throughout the process. “Canada is a positive place,” and some of the other parties’ negative advertising is deterring some people from vot-

ing, he charged. “I think we need to do better,” said Speirs. Liberal Party candidate Mandeep Bhuller noted similar experiences to his running mates. “It’s been extremely energizing,” he said Tuesday. “It’s been quite exciting to have this many invitations” to share the Liberal political views. Bhuller’s last few days of campaigning are also chock-full of appearances, all candidates forums and assorted get togethers. “We’ve been sharing what we feel is the people’s platform, but I’m not speaking from a script,” he shared.

OPINION

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

Royal diversion On Friday, an estimated two billion people around the world will be glued to their televisions at all hours of the day and night to watch the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. They’ll also be able to view the pomp and ceremony on an official royal YouTube channel, or a royal wedding app on their iPhone, or follow it on a live blog with integrated Twitter feed. There’s no escaping the hype. No detail is too minute or mundane for scrutiny, from speculation on Middleton’s dress and who’s designing it, to who’s on the guest list and who’s not, to the gifts, appetizers, menu, carriage, weather. The cynics, meanwhile, roll their eyes. They dismiss the royal family as irrelevant; they don’t make decisions, they don’t create policy. They scorn their lavish lifestyles of privilege as a needless burden on taxpayers struggling to pay the rent and buy groceries in recessionary times. They shake their heads at the expense and attention paid to a royal wedding as an affront when people are dying in wars, struggling to rebuild their lives after disasters, dealing with the daily challenges of disease, starvation and poverty. But it’s those very realities that pique our interest and curiosity about the royals. It’s human nature to seek escape from all the challenges of just getting through the day, whether it’s turning up the volume on a favourite song as we’re stuck in traffic, to popping into the coffee shop for a calorie-laden snack, to scanning the headlines on the gossip magazines as we stand in line at the grocery store checkout. For most, the royal wedding is no more than that, a diversion. So sit back and enjoy. The problems of the world return on Saturday. - Burnaby-New Westminster NewsLeader

Now can we talk HST? E

ven if movies based on video games aren’t your cup of tea, the recent Disney production Tron: Legacy is notable as a measure of the sophistication of the B.C. motion picture industry. A showcase of the latest computer-generated 3D effects, including a rendering of actor Jeff Bridges as he looked in the original version 30 years ago, Tron: Legacy was nominated for an Oscar and won several other awards for technical achievement. The sleek, lighted suits worn by characters were custom-made in the United States at a cost of $22 million, then brought to Vancouver for filming. Due to the vagaries of the old provincial sales tax, Disney had to pay about $1.5 million in PST because they were used here. A friend in the business tells me this was more of a deterrent to movie production in B.C. than the current weakness of the U.S. dollar. It’s the kind of expensive insult added to the injury of dealing with two different,

but ask a self-employed person or small business operator if they’d like to go back to administering two different sales taxes. Quarterly HST rebate cheques went out last week to more than a million B.C. residents at the lowest end of the income scale. Ask those people if they’d like to lose that benefit, a real example of the kind of income equalizing measure that Dix calls his top priority. Ask a laid-off mill employee if he’d like to go back to work, and pay HST on movies and a dinner out. • Further to last week’s column about Dix’s plan to raise corporate tax rates, I now regret referring to his program as “Marxism Lite.” I fell for his strident rhetoric about taxing big corporations. His proposal amounts to raising the tax on corporate net income in excess of $500,000 by a modest two per cent.

YOUR VIEWS Bravo Zulu to Mission and its fire department Editor, The Record: An open letter to District of Mission and Mission Fire/Rescue Service: On April 15-16 I had the rare privilege of witnessing events unfold as all of the members of the Mission Fire/Rescue Service said farewell to one of their own. I am referring to the funeral services for the late Fire Chief Frank Ryan. Frank was a very close friend of mine for over 30 years and to witness this wonderful event first hand was truly amazing. In my opinion, the department, under the guidance of Chief Ian Fitzpatrick, went above and beyond what might have been expected to say good bye to their past chief and friend, and for that they have

earned my greatest respect and admiration. The amount of detail, preparation and execution that went in to this event was simply outstanding. I don’t think there was one detail overlooked as the department showed their great appreciation for a departed member of their family. The cooperation between the Mission and Abbotsford fire departments is also worthy of mention with Abbotsford pitching in to cover fire protection services during the funeral proceedings as well as an aerial apparatus to help with parade activities and uniformed members marching in the parade. So to Abbotsford, as well, I say thank you. To the citizens of Mission, the

district administration team and council, I just want to pass on my sincere congratulations for your continued efforts to support such an outstanding department. They definitely gave my buddy Frank a fine send off. You must be just so very proud of them all. In closing, I want to say to all that I met, and to all those who worked so hard to make this event the great success that it was, Bravo Zulu from an old Navy guy for a job well done. Mission, you and your fire department are simply the best. Jim Ennis Royal Canadian Navy (ret.) and City of Yorkton Fire Department (ret.)

Durieu appreciates the support Editor, The Record: The parents and students of Durieu Elementary School would like to extend a thank you to all those businesses and individuals in Mission and the surrounding area who donated items or services for our March 12 silent auction. Thanks to your support, the evening was a great success, with delicious burgers and a big turn-out at the Dew-

dney Pub, accompanied by some excellent music played by Willy and the Wannabees. The money raised will benefit all Durieu students as we plan their year-end field trips and activities, but especially the Grade 6/7 class on its three-day trip to Zajac Ranch in May. They will have the opportunity to experience many more activities than would oth-

erwise be possible. As most of you know, Durieu will be closing at the end of the school year. Our final activities are extra special this year, as we would like the students to have very positive memories to carry with them as they move out to other schools away from the Durieu community. Our Grade 6/7 camp trip will help teach our students

valuable lessons, instill greater self-confidence and create lasting memories that will stay with them for many years to come. Without the generosity of the Mission community, many of these activities would not be possible and we are all very grateful for your involvement and support.

MLA has hosted several meetings Editor, The Record: Re: All MLAs, MPs forced to serve two masters, April 21 edition. I’d like to clarify Chris Ryan’s inaccuracies. He wrote that to his knowledge my latest invitation to the community was the first invite to the public to meet me and discuss issues. In fact, just in the last number of months, I have had five coffee invitations and open houses in the constituency: October, November, December, March and April. Three were in Maple Ridge and two in Mission. I am continuously connecting with people in our communities and meeting with organizations, community leaders and constituents. I work diligently for Mission and Maple Ridge and have fully staffed offices in both municipalities to

help me better serve residents. I respond to constituent e-mails, calls and arrange face to face meetings on a regular basis. Mr. Ryan knows this very well. When he himself wanted to meet me some time ago about issues of concern, I met with him at my Mission office for a lengthy conversation. I’ve also corresponded with him at different times by e-mail. I am here because I desire to serve the people of Mission, Maple Ridge and all British Columbians. My ongoing hope and goal is to make a significant contribution to help people and make our communities a better place to live. It is a demanding job, but I count it an honour.

Peary’s actions an affront Explore our Editor, The Record: Was that a misquote by Abbotsford Mayor George Peary in The Mission Record, April 7, 2011? Did he really call Mission a dog’s derriere? The quote, “I won’t let the tail wag the dog,” refers to Mission council turning down the P3 funding proposal that would give a private, possibly foreign-owned company, control over our drinking water. The vote occurred after a public consultation meeting where dozens of speakers, over five hours, rejected the proposal, except for a lone speaker representing the Chamber of Commerce. The chamber is not concerned about taxpayers possibly being on the hook as long as their narrow-focused members increase their business. Abbotsford water manager Jim Gordon tried to reassure

Mission residents that his negotiating skills and language would protect taxpayers. Anyone remember the sweetheart deal negotiated with a private hockey team which cost the taxpayers $500,000 this year and possibly for nine more years in Abbotsford? Another P3 project, the Golden Ears Bridge, is costing a $30-million subsidy to a private company this year and who knows how much in the future. It sounds like Abbotsford council has their mind made up so why waste residents’ time doing comprehensive research and making informed presentations. Mayor Peary’s action’s are an affront to concerned presenters and reminds one of a spoiled adolescent having a tantrum or the manifestation of a bully. T.B. Mortimer Mission

water needs Editor, The Record: While Mission council deserves credit for succumbing to public pressure on the proposed Stave Lake water private public partnership (P3), it was glaringly obvious that Mission needs a locally developed water policy. Now is the time to initiate a genuine study of Mission’s water needs and capabilities involving maximum public participation. Mayor James Atebe was adamant that council was not bullied by Abbotsford. Mission needs to take control of its water systems and resources. Ron Anderton Mission

Rockin River festival might move across Lougheed Hwy. BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

This year’s Rockin River Music Festival could be moving to the north side of Lougheed Highway, just west of Nelson Street, due to the pending sale of the current property where attendees camped. Last week organizers sought support from the district to send the proposal to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), as the proposed 33 hectare site, at 31042 Silverdale Ave., falls under its jurisdiction. “We’re being proactive,” said Kenny Hess, spokesperson for the Rockin River Music group, who would like to keep the camping and the festival on the same site. Hess also noted his organization has offered to re-seed and repair any damage done to the property, and has been studying ways to minimize impact to the site. Coun. Mike Scudder, having just received the information the same day, asked for more time to talk to residents and do research, but council didn’t agree. Coun.

Silverdale hall celebrating 60th birthday on Sunday Come celebrate Silverdale Community Centre and Association’s 60th anniversary this Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. at Silverdale Hall. The first hall opened in 1914 after local residents and volunteers donated the land and built the popular gathering place. It was used for dances, weddings, and even served as a church on weekends. The community outgrew it by 1950 and a new one was built half a mile from the old location. That hall, which opened in 1951, has hosted many community events and special occasions, such as Steve Fonyo’s run and Rick Hansen’s Miles for Millions for spinal research. That hall is still used today. There will be snacks, cake, coffee and tea at the May 1 celebration. Everyone is invited to attend and share their memories and pho-

Mission locked down after weekend of unrest Mission Institution is locked down following a trio of incidents during the weekend. An inmate assault in the gymnasium Friday started the series of events, said Jonathan Ratzlaff, acting assistant warden of management services. The institution

was locked down at that point, but restrictions were lifted by Saturday afternoon. However, after a “suspicious” fire in a cell and another inmate assault, officials again locked down the prison. Staff are searching cells for un-

authorized items, and Ratzlaff said this will take a few days. The institution will return to normal routine once management determines that it is safe. Mission Institution is a federal medium-security institution which currently houses 270 inmates.

Academy cements RCMP goal BY CAROL AUN Mission Record

Seven Mission high school students got a glimpse of what it takes to join the national police force last month during spring break. Every year students who are interested in law enforcement and want to challenge themselves can apply for the RCMP Youth Academy in Chilliwack, said Const. Carl Wellwood, one of the group’s mentors. The academy gives participants a chance to see what kind of conditioning they would go through if they were accepted into depot, the RCMP training academy in Regina. Students also earn work experience credits towards graduation during the one-week session. “It was the hardest thing I’ve done, but also the most rewarding,” said Cody Fillion, a Grade 12 student at Hatzic Secondary School. “It takes a hardworking, committed person to be part of the RCMP.” For Fillion, the tough-

est part about the week was waking up at 5:30 each morning for physical training, but the experience convinced him to keep pursuing a career in policing. Fillion enjoyed listening to guest speakers and learned there are many sections in the RCMP from which to choose. “Topics such as self defense, handcuffing techniques, physical training and drills are all part of the experience,” said Wellwood. “They then put their knowledge into practice in several reality-based scenarios a

police officer might encounter, such as impaired driving, break and enter, and domestic violence investigations.” Students also learn about criminal law and basic investigation techniques in classrooms and hear guest lecturers from the Emergency Response Team, police dog services, air services and forensics.

There are also team building exercises and students are in their dorm with the lights out at 10:30 p.m. “I made numerous friends and the whole group of cadets all came together well at the end of the academy,” said Fillion. The youth academy has been running for more than 10 years, garnering critical acclaim from participants, noted Wellwood, adding students are selected for the program in the fall after they submit an application form and resume and complete an interview with a youth liaison officer. “It’s very rewarding to see the transformation that occurs each year from when a group of individual students is dropped off by their parents to when a troop of cadets graduate eight days later.”

Buy some coffee, help youth Sip your way to a caffeine education this Saturday as Mission Youth Unlimited (MYU) hosts a coffee cupping event at a local church. There will be up to seven different types of coffee to sample at Mission Foursquare Church, starting at 7 p.m. Cupping is the practice of observing the tastes and aromas of brewed coffee, said Youth Unlimited area director Barry McLeod. Interspersed with the java sampling, which is co-presented by Cuppa Joe Coffee, will be inspirational stories told by youth about the programs the organization offers. Funds from this event will be funnelled towards MYU’s youth van project, said McLeod. The organization is trying to gather $25,000 to replace the well-used vehicle, which has transported hundreds

of youth to a myriad of events. MYU makes the van available to local groups working with youth, including Fraser House Society and Union Gospel Mission. “There are at least 20 different groups using it each year,� said McLeod. Mission Community Foundation has contributed $1,400 towards the costs, bringing the total raised so far to nearly $5,000. Tickets to the coffee tasting are $15 and available at Sue’s Copy Place, Mission Foursquare Church, Lanka Jewels or by calling 604-820-8246. Admission includes a half-pound bag of a featured coffee from the event. The church is located at 33837 Prentis Ave. If you would like to donate money or items in-kind towards the van, contact Barry at the above-noted number.

Community services here for 39 years C

an you believe it? Mission Community Services (MCS) has since been here for 39 years. What started out as an agency in 1972 with five programs, has now expanded to 30 programs with over 80 staff at six locations. The programs now include services for seniors, children, youth and family, multicultural, mental health, and emergency services. Within each of these categories there are many individual programs. Here are a few stories of what folks have to say: • In December the two Crapo children Noah, six, and Isaac, four, had a joint birthday party, and instead of receiving gifts from family and friends, they asked that folks donate to MCS. Consequently, the boys were able to bring $185 to the Christmas Bureau. Their mother, Melissa, believes that by this selfless act she was showing Noah and Isaac that it is sometimes better to give than to receive. The staff and volunteers were very impressed by the generosity that the boys had shown at such a young age. • “I am very pleased to write this letter to MCS in order to focus on their Meals on Wheels program. I am currently a participant in this program in that I receive weekly meal delivery services and have received great benefit from this excellent service for approximately a year. The program provides ample servings of nutritious food at a very satisfactory cost. In addition, the delivery service is handled by reliable, friendly and courteous drivers. In summary, Mission Community Services is to be commended and thanked for their organization and services in making their Meals on Wheels

program a success.” • “My sessions with the counsellor of the Family Development Response Program gives me the ability to deal with my childhood, my ex-marriage, and to healthily move on to a positive future.” • “I came to Nobody’s Perfect to interact with other parents and have my child play with other children. I enjoyed meeting other families and hearing about different peoples’ parenting experiences and other methods of parenting.”

THE DISABILITY TAX CREDIT WHAT COULD IT MEAN TO ME? A recent federal report announced that 4.4 million Canadians have some type of disability and may be entitled to the Disability Tax Credit. This credit, meant to help with some everyday living expenses and medical equipment is often missed by taxpayers because they do not realize they qualify to receive it.

These are just a few examples of what people tell us. This tells the story that MCS is a great asset and a benefit to the community. Without MCS, the financial drain on the District of Mission to help and to accommodate individuals and families would be tremendous. To find out more, visit www.missioncommunityservices. com. MCS is celebrating Community Services Week, April 24-30. Chances Boardwalk Gaming will be holding a special night on April 30. A $5 donation will be matched by Chances when you play bingo that night, and the money will be donated to the senior’s programs. Your donation gets you a buffet dinner at 5:30 p.m., bingo, door prizes, and a goody bag. Even if you have never played bingo before, there will be staff there to assist you. Tickets may be purchased at MCS, 33179 Second Ave. or call 604-8263634. - Submitted by Carolyn Janousek, fund development officer for MCS

Taking part in 115 years of history A Mission distance runner recently qualified and completed the 2011 Boston Marathon BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record

Most people spend years getting into a hobby, some having an eventual goal, or pinnacle achievement in mind. For others, landmark moments just sort of happen. Mission’s Carin Thornton has been a runner most of her life, but never really pursued it strongly. On a lark, and after a comment from her sister, the local daycare owner entered herself into last year’s Vancouver Marathon. Her sister said if she ran hard enough, Thornton could qualify for the 115-year-old Boston Marathon and that her sibling would accompany her to Beantown. “I had to get four hours or less, and I ran a 3:58:49,” said the affable woman. Not bad for a first-ever marathon.

Thornton signed up for Boston, but two weeks later, suffered a stress fracture in each leg, sidelining her for months. Thornton didn’t start preparing for Boston until January, trimming her training schedule to a scant 12 weeks, instead of the standard 16 to 18. But rather than run for a personal best, Thornton had a different goal. “I really wanted to experience it all,” she said. “The people in Boston absolutely love [marathoners]. You’re a celebrity.” Thornton and her sister ran, decked out in Canadian flags, but they stopped along the race route to take photos with other Canucks in the crowd who were cheering on the runners, and to pet the odd dog and get photos of different sights. Even with all the stops, Thornton clocked a respectable 4:12:05.

Niners help JB Blue to win The Mission Niners had five players representing them in this year’s JB Starbowl, played this past weekend at Townsend Park in Chilliwack. Bryce Fillion, Peter Kulba, Dayton Robertson, Cameron Stewart and Garrett McIsaac all represented the local team. Fillion opened the scoring for JB Blue with a 55-yard run down the sideline.

The JB Purple team tied the game with Brandon Sang scoring a one-yard touchdown with only 1:50 remaining in the first half. But with 20 seconds left in the first half, Hunter Laroque ran 75 yards to put JB Blue up 16-8, which is where the score sat after a quiet second half. Fillion earned the best offensive player award for the JB Blue team.

Mission’s Carin Thornton qualified for and completed the Boston Marathon earlier this month. JASON ROESSLE PHOTO

Peck shared his love of outdoors with everyone T

his week in our series on Vancouver sport fishing personalities, I’ll talk about Ted Peck. Clarke Edsell “Ted” Peck, one of B.C.’s best-known anglers and outdoorsman, was and remains a man of mystery. Famous for his television show, Tides and Trails, that ran from 1960 to 1966, Ted also ran a salmon charter and hosted a Sunday night open line radio show on Vancouver’s CKWX for an additional 10 years. Ted was always endorsing products on his shows; be it Ted Peck fishing rods available at Woodwards, Sportsman cigarettes, Mustang floater coats, Cowichan sweaters, or nilodor, whatever it was we bought it because Ted said so. I got to know Ted personally in his later years when he was selling tackle at Jaymer’s Fly and Tackle, and teaching evening fishing classes in various school districts. Irascible on occasion, I always laughed at the thought that this cantankerous curmudgeon had achieved so much for himself and B.C. sport fishing. I found his secret was in the way he treated my daughter. While Ted could be short with adults, he would always put everything else aside to render encouragement towards children, and listen intently to their fish stories.

I find it hard to accept that for a man who achieved such fame, so little is documented, but that is the way he wanted it. He was a man whose only interest was seeing others enjoy the outdoors, period. Ted went on to his reward Oct. 26, 2001. I am honoured that I got to follow in his footsteps and teach fly fishing for Je the Burnaby School District in the four years following his departure.

and dominating the match after the first round, said coach Dale Gatin. The score was tied at one after the first, he said, but coming out of the second round, McIntosh started to put together more aggressive combinations. Between the second and third rounds, Gatin said Hamed was starting to tire and advised McIntosh to stick to counterpunching, which put the score in his favour. Dedicated time in the gym has helped the young fighter evolve from a quick puncher, to one that has power behind his technique.

Volunteers needed for Canada Day The planning for Mission’s 2011 Canada Day celebrations is well under way. The event grows each year with more attractions and thus the need for volunteers increases. This year, it is anticipated that over 60 volunteers will be required to help with areas such as pony rides, set up, greeters, stick-on tattoos, take

down crew and more. Mission’s Canada Day celebrations will be held at Fraser River Heritage Park on Friday, July 1. Volunteers receive a free lunch, T-shirt and other goodies for helping out. To sign up on the volunteer list please visit the Leisure Centre at 7650 Grand St. or call 604-8205350 ext. 0.

PUBLIC MEETINGS OF COUNCIL District of Mission Council wishes to invite the public to attend open meetings and regular meetings of Council. The following meetings are scheduled for the weeks of

A geisha passes out treats at an April 8 event to raise funds to help disaster relief efforts in Japan after a massive earthquake. BOB FRIESEN PHOTO

Message from Oyama, update on fundraiser $4,000 raised On April 8, 2011 the District of Mission’s Oyama Sister City committee and the newly formed Mission International Cultural Association (MICA) held a fundraiser dinner and silent auction to raise money for disaster relief efforts in Japan. Over $4,000 was raised and will be sent to our sister city of Oyama to be distributed to organizations in Japan helping in the relief efforts. We wish to thank the organizations and the people of Mission for their generosity in making this event successful. The following letter was received by the District of Mission from the mayor of Oyama and the chairperson of the Oyama International Friendship Association on April 2, 2011.

Dear Mayor James Atebe, Words cannot express enough our thanks and appreciation to the people of the District of Mission for their thoughts and actions in this time of need of our people and country. The great earthquake and tsunami(s) took their toll on our people of the Tohoku and Kanto areas, especially the Tohoku area. The name given to this natural disaster is “Great Eastern Japan Earthquake.” Many people are still missing. The aftershocks over this part of Japan and the surrounding areas are threatening the people. The power outages caused by the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant are disrupting, and the lack of the bare necessities of life is becoming unbelievable for some people. May the souls of the people who were taken from us rest in peace. We in Oyama, which is located far from the main disaster areas (Tohoku) did not have any large damage from the great earthquake and tsunami(s), but we have aftershocks, or earthquakes, around Mt. Fuji and planned

electrical power outages due to the shortage of electricity. Many private and governmental organizations now called in volunteers from all over Japan to help and support the people of the disaster areas to start to reconstruct their lives and areas. We, the people of Oyama, are also participating in these efforts, and promise the people of the District of Mission that the funds raised for our people and country will be used to reconstruct the disaster-stricken area through the town of Oyama and the Oyama International Friendship Association. Again, may we say that words cannot express our thanks and appreciation to the people of the District of Mission and the people(s) of the world for their thoughts and actions in our time of need. Sincerely yours, Hiroshi Takahashi Mayor, Town of Oyama and Yozo Watanabe Chairperson, Oyama International Friendship Association

SPRING CLEANUP 20112011 SPRING CLEANUP Spring cleanup week is scheduled for May 2nd through May 6th on residents’ regular collection day. Regular refuse, recycling and compost preparation procedures apply. CURBSIDE COLLECTION OF ADDITIONAL MATERIALS In the curbside collection area, residents may place additional materials at the curb on their regular collection day, as follows: • Additional materials are limited to 2 cubic meters per household (1 cubic metre = 6 bags of refuse, or 1 stove or 1 armchair). This limit will be strictly enforced. Refuse above the limit will be left at the curbside to remain the resident’s responsibility. • All additional materials must be manageable by two people. • Prohibited materials for curbside collection are: o construction and demolition/renovation wastes, including gyproc, flooring materials, wood debris, fencing & roofing, bricks, rocks, toilets etc.; o electronics (free drop off at Mission Recycling Depot) o refrigerators, freezers and propane tanks (free drop off at Mission Landfill); o automotive parts including tires, batteries or other vehicle-related parts;* o hazardous materials, including toxic, flammable, corrosive and petroleum products, paint, pesticides and antifreeze;* o bio-hazardous materials, including needles and animal wastes. Please help out collection crews and prevent litter by not placing loose materials that may blow away, and cleaning up incidental debris and “leftovers” promptly.

MISSION LANDFILL DROP-OFF (YEAR ROUND, SOME ITEMS FREE) • Please note that due to increased environmental costs at the Mission landfill (Minnie’s Pit), there will be no more free dumping of household waste during spring cleanup week, and the landfill will be open during regular hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). • Recyclable materials, such as blue-bag recyclables, scrap metal, appliances, electronics, yard waste, clean lumber, batteries, paint, gypsum board, used oil and filters, are now banned from disposal, but can be dropped off at designated facilities for recycling. For a complete list of banned materials and facilities, please consult your curbside collection calendar, phone 604-820-3736 or visit www.mission.ca. Please sort your loads to avoid surcharges. • Appliances, including fridges and freezers, and scrap metal, car batteries and propane tanks are accepted free of charge year round. • To prevent litter, loads must be secured. A $10 surcharge now applies to unsecured loads.

MISSION RECYCLING DEPOT FREE DROP-OFF (YEAR ROUND, ALL FREE) The Mission Recycling Depot, located at 7229 Mershon Street, is open seven days a week from 8:30 to 4:30 and will accept the following materials at no charge year round: • Electronics, limited to: o desktop and laptop computers o desktop printers and fax machines o monitors o mice, keyboards & cables o televisions • Leftover paint, spray paint and empty paint cans; • Specific household hazardous products (check www.productcare.org or phone 604-850-3551 for details) • Car batteries and household batteries • Scrap metal, including empty propane tanks, barbeques, metal fencing, metal siding etc. • Most metal appliances (NO fridges or freezers here, please, due to the need for freon removal. Take these to the landfill for recycling); • Any recyclables accepted in the blue-bag program. *For additional recycling options, including details on this year’s HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE DAY (Saturday, May 7th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) at the Mission Recycling Depot, please consult your curbside collection calendar, visit www.mission.ca or call the Engineering Department at 604-820-3736.

• If a fuse blows or a circuit breaker trips often, find out why and correct the problem. Replace fuses with the correct amperage rating for the circuit they protect; never replace a fuse with a higher-rated fuse. If the problem continues, call an electrician. • Only plug one heat-producing appliance into a receptacle outlet at a time. • Buy only appliances that have the label of a recognized testing laboratory. • Replace cracked and damaged electrical cords. • Pinching cords against walls or furniture or running them under carpets or across doorways can cause a fire. • Use extension cords for temporary wiring only. • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for plugging an appliance into a receptacle outlet. • Avoid overloading outlets. • If an appliance is malfunctioning, unplug it if it is safe to do so. If necessary, cut off power by unscrewing a fuse or turn off the circuit breaker. • Arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) are a new kind of circuit breaker that shut off electricity when a dangerous condition occurs. Consider having them installed in your home. Use a qualified electrician. • Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) reduce the risk of shock. GFCIs shut off an electrical circuit when it becomes a shock hazard. • Tamper-resistant receptacles have shutters that close off the slots of the receptacle. These receptacles are important in making a home a safe place for children. • Keep ladders away from overhead power lines including the electrical service into your home. Never touch a power line. Stay at a safe distance. • Report downed power lines to authorities. • Some power lines are underground. Call your local authority regarding digging. For parents and kids • In homes with small children, install tamperresistant electrical receptacles. • If receptacles or switches feel warm, shut off the circuit and have them checked by an electrician. • Do not place cloth over a light bulb to diffuse or soften the light. Buying a low wattage or soft white or pastel light bulb can help you achieve this effect without creating a fire hazard.

DRINKING WATER WEEK MAY1-7

Here in B.C. we often take our tap water for granted, but it is a finite resource that we should value

at a glance

and protect.

■ 25% of Canadians have no idea where the water that flows out of their taps comes from. ■ Canadians use an average of 329 litres of water per day - twice the amount used by Europeans. However, the average Canadian thinks they use only 79 litres per day. ■ Canadians admit to knowingly engaging in water wasting activities such as leaving the tap running while washing dishes (44%) and hosing down their driveways (19%). ■ Canadians are more concerned with saving electricity than water: 29% of Canadians don’t know what they pay for their water, but only 10% don’t know what they pay for their electricity bill.

We need to value our drinking water industry and agriculture, and the effects of climate change all place enormous pressure on our water supply.” Drinking Water Week, May 1st - 7th, is dedicated to creating awareness of the value of our water, our water systems, and the people who make it accessible and safe for us to drink. Many communities throughout B.C. are holding events to celebrate Drinking Water Week, including hosting tours of their local reservoirs and treatment plants, and we encourage you to take the time to visit them. Check your local newspaper to find out about events in your community, or visit www.drinkingwaterweek. org for activities and educational resources provided by the BC Water & Waste Association.

Tips for conserving water:

DRINKING WATER WEEK MAY1-7

■ Take shorter showers ■ Check your toilets and faucets for leaks ■ Turn-off the water while brushing your teeth ■ Purchase water-efficient appliances

BC Water & Waste Association and others who keep your water safe and clean, ask you to value our water and celebrate Drinking Water Week 2011. Visit: www.drinkingwaterweek.org

■ Wash your car with a bucket instead of a hose ■ Install low-flow toilets that use less water

True and False: Test your water knowledge by trying our quiz. 1. British Columbians use less water each day compared to other Canadians. 2. Most indoor water use occurs in the bathroom. 3. It does not matter what we put down our drains, as all of our wastewater gets treated in B.C.

■ Install low-flow shower heads

T__ F__ T__ F__ T__ F__

■ Use rain barrels ■ Avoid watering your lawn in the summer

ANSWERS: 1; F. British Columbia residents use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the national average of 329 litres. 2; T. We use 65% of our water in the bathroom, 20% for laundry, 10% for drinking and kitchen needs, and 5% for cleaning. 3; F. While it is true that most wastewater in B.C. is treated before it is returned to its source, we should be careful not to put harmful substances down our drains or in our gardens. These substances can harm fish and other aquatic creatures (check with your municipality to find out how to properly dispose of harsh chemicals).

When you turn on your tap and clean, safe water comes out,do you ever stop to think: how does it get there? Who brings it you? Where does it end up when you’re finished with it? BC Water & Waste Association and the Province of British Columbia have officially proclaimed Drinking Water Week May 1st to 7th, 2011. We invite you to celebrate this exciting week by “getting to know your H2O” – including where it comes from, where it goes, and how you can protect and conserve it. Here in B.C., where we have an abundance of natural resources, we often take our tap water for granted. However, there is no such thing as ‘new water’ – the water that we use continually cycles through the environment, and is reused again and again. British Columbians personally use an average of 490 litres of water per day compared to the Canadian average of 329 litres per day. That is about double what Europeans use! Although it may not be apparent to all of us, the costs and energy required to deliver water to our taps, treat it to be safe and clean, and safeguard the environment by managing wastewater, add up to billions of dollars every year in Canada. Daisy Foster, CEO of the 4,400-member BC Water & Waste Association notes, “Increases in our population, the growth of

ONT wraps up season Opening Nite Theatre finishes the 2010-2011 season with ‘A Night of Theatre’ featuring John Gardner on the piano, followed by two one-act plays: The Noble Lor by Percival Wilde, directed by Susan Dearing, and The Love Course by A.R. Gurney, directed by Rose Bennett. The Noble Lord is set in a secluded spot in the Maine woods in the neighbourhood of a summer hotel close to a small lake. A young woman wants to attract the attention of the noble lord who is vacationing at the hotel. She devises a plan: she fakes a drowning by jumping into the lake just as the noble lord is approaching in hopes that he will save her. The result is a short, hilarious, comedic play. The Love Course is set in an American university where Professors Burgess and Carroway com-

bine their literary skills to teach The Love Course. Professor Carroway specializing in the romantics, and Professor Burgess’ interests lie in Shakespeare and literature based on broader aspects of life. The entire play takes place during a class at the university. It is the last class of the school year and Professor Carroway is moving to a new position in another university. She wants to make this a class to remember and indeed she does as she involves students Sally and Mike in her eccentric behaviour much to the dismay of Professor Burgess who has a more down to earth approach to teaching and life. Performances take place at Opening Nite Theatre, 33227 N. Railway Ave., at 8 p.m. May 6, 7, 13, 14, Matinees are at 2 p.m. on May 8 and 15. Tickets are available at Murdoch’s Book Shoppe on First Avenue or at the door.

What’s Happening in Mission

RECEIVING GOD’S STRENGTH Where, or from whom do we receive our strength? The Bible has a clear answer to this question: I can do all things in Him who strengthens me (Philippians 4:12); God is our refuge and strength, an everpresent help in trouble (Psalm 46:1); and, the Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace (Psalm 20:11). Tapping into this marvelous resource of God’s strength is as natural as life itself, and accepting our human weaknesses and frailties is essential, so that we can become more trusting of our Heavenly Father. Of course, we are expected to always do our very best, and to be a person of love, compassion, and mercy. Also, a good prayer is necessary for a more serene life, and in turn improves our relationship with our Lord. Building our strength and trusting in God does not mean that things will always turn out the way we think they should, or even to our own liking; it simply means accepting God’s will for our lives, and believing that our Lord knows what is best for us at all times. And although accepting God’s will is not always easy, it is necessary in order to be His followers and to receive His strength and stability in our lives.

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped...

BUGDEN, (nee Butcher) It is hard to believe 1 year has passed since you left us, and 37 years for your younger sister Nancy. Although I often think if one was to look up to the heavens on a clear star-lit night you just may see two beautiful angels looking down and watching over us. If you were to listen, really listen, you may hear them say “We are fine and at peace together, and wish you a very happy 60th anniversary next month. Love you all Mom, Dad, Pam&George”.
